Vtw York, TlinnwUy, Augtut itt, 1847. A1SZVA& of t11r FRENCH STEAMER MISSOURI AT HALIFAX. We last evening received the following telegraphic despatches from Boston:? Boston, August 18?Evening. The Missouri arrived at Halifax on the 15th instant, at 6 P. M., and the Cambria on the 17th, at 4 A. M., and left at 7 A. M. The Missouri was fallen in with, 14th instant, by the British revenue cutter Daring, Captain Darby, froni Sable Island; had had no coal for forty-eight hours when she fell in with the Daring. On hearing of her distress, Captain Darby overhauled the brig Lady Young, from Sydney, which vessel supplied ber wiih coal. Twentysix cabin aod sixty-five steerage passengers on board fie Missouri. Boston, Aug. 18?P. M. The French steamer .Missouri, from Cherbourg for New York, was at Halifax when the Cambria left? put in for coals? would leave on the evening of the 16th. Her mail agent and mails hare come in the Cambria. THe Foreign New*. We publish to-day an abstract of the foreign news recrived ut Boston yesterday by the steamer Cambria, and transmitted to this office by tel- I egraph. It wu, without exception, the best arranged and th?* best transmitted telegraphic denpitch we ever received from Boston. The manner in which the operators prform^d their work entitles them, and particularly Mr Foss, to the th inks of th? community. As the time the Cambria arriv d at Boston was probably too late to send her mails to this city in the ordinsry way, the probability is, that we shall get our regular foreign files in the course of this morning by special messenger. If we do, we shall pnblish the details of the news in the evening edition of the New York Herald, which we shnil have ready earlier than usual, that is to a?y, at twelve o'clock. If we should find, which we do not at ptwrn ftpprehend, that there are any error# in the teleK'*,<bic quotations of the grain and other mac ke .1, we ?hall place the corrections on our baJietiu the moment J/ter we receive our filee. It it* worthy of remark, that not a singl- interruption occurred to the trlfgriph dunug the truua- , tuiadion of (he lonff despatch which we received.

The following message was yesterday afternoon despatched over the wires to the Ntrc York Herald office ; it reached us at half past two o'clock. Telegraphic Despatch, No. I. Boitow, Aug. 18?2 18 P. M. The steamihip Cambria is telegraphed eaat by (cutb S3 miles from Borion. She will be up about A o'clock. SPEED. About five o'clock the Cambria reached her pier. Our special messenger boarded and obtained the latest intelligence, and immediately transmitted the despatch, made up in Liverpool for us. It came through in beautiful style, without a single interruption. The Cambria left Liverpool on the 4th inst. We are enabled, by our telegraphic report, to make out the following comparative statement of the prices of breadstuff* in Liverpool on the 19th uit. and 4th inst. :?

(id. per bbl., but the transactions were generally unimportant. The above is the result of yesterday's market, and shows a serious decliuc in the value of breadstufls. A panic has decidedly taken place, accelerated by the gradual downward tendency of the late London markets, the highly favorable stale of the | home crops, and the stiffness of the money market. In the London corn market on Monday a reduction on wheat of 8s to 10s per quarter have taken place. We have no quotations to give of yesterday's transactions Several heavy failures have occurred in the corn trade; and many others of a serious character are apprehendedThe prospects of the harvests Htill continue unexeeptionably encouraging, und every where promise a most abundant yield. It has alrendy begun in some of the Southern counties. Thecrops of wheat, oats and barley ?re universally healthy. The potato*', notwithstanding nil | [ t lat hu been Mid about the reappearance of the disease of last year, is affected but to a very insignificant extent. Reporta from Ireland are equally glowing.

A painful sensation has taken place in the money market since the departure of the last steamer, and which, in a greater or less degree, has affected every branch of trade and manufacture. For some days the funds have been in a very unsettled state, and though speculation has not gone to the extent which it was apprehended it *would, the financial condition of the country may be Baid to be in a state of the ' most painful uneasiness, t'he Manchester business has for the last few days been of a very limited character, and if the monetary embarrass ment continues, increased distress will be the inevitable consequence. Although the tunds wera in a state of unusual fluctuation last week, they have this week opened with greater firmness, but how long that position will be.maintained, it is hard to predict. The price of Consols on Monday, opened at 88$ to i, for money, from which they advanced to 88$ to I, in consequence of the fall in the corn market. In the course of the day the Bank of England announced an increased scale of discounts, which caused an immediate fall of ? per cent; at the close of business there was no rally. The last money price was 88.} to {; but for account they opened at 89 to J, from which they receded to 88j to 4- Bank ttock left off at 196? to 198; there was no material change yesterday. General Intelligence. The Royal mail steamer Caledonia arrived in the Mersey on the morning of the 28th July. /irrivcu juiy &u9 v.nauM, vviison ; zisi, uarriCK, !

So far as the returns have been made, they show a complete triumph for the free trade principles Lord John Russell, who will form a new cabinet, has been re-elected for the city of London. The accessions of the prelacy, priesthood and gentry of the country to the Aid Ireland party artlarge, and the weekly contributions steadily increase. It is expected that a large proportion ol repealers will be returned to the Imperial Parliament this election. The remains of Mr. O'Connell were embarked at Birkenhead, for Dublin, on Sunday, wher* thf-y arrived the following day. A distinguished literary amateur performance for the benefit of that child of genius, Leigh Hunt, was given in Liverpool on Wednesday last. The principal characters were borne by C<i <rl*s Dickens, Douglass Jerrold, I^ark Lemon, Cruikshttnk and Leitrh. A formidable conspiraoy of the most diabolical character has been detected at Rome.

The Sunderbuund. or Catholic league have armed themselves, but are likely to be suppressed. Mr. Walters, the celebrated proprietor of the London Timti, died last week.

The imuiemtnti of the People. The theatres, and other places of amusement in this city nre receiving more patronage than they ever <1 id within our knowled e. Indeed, it is remarked by thousands of people, that a theatrical and musical mania has broken out in this old city, which is nightly carrying away hundreds and scores of our citizens ! ' to hear the best of singing, and see the best of 1 tight rope dancing and theatrical performances. ! The Park?Old Drury, as its friends love to style it?is first on the list. Since the com- j mencement of the season, this ancient and timehonored dramatic temple h is been crowded, us the saying is, from pit to dome. Mrs. Anna Bishop's singing has made our steadiest citizens lulf mad, while it has completely crazed our vounir men. Nothing hut that IhHv'h notea ar? 1 spoken of in the counting-room, the office, the coflVe-houae, and the parlor, by old and young of , both sr'xes. It may be called the Bishop-mania, i and will not stop its r ivages until the author of ! it leaves the city or the country. i The Bowery is the next on the list, and de- j serves more than a passing notice. Mrs. Shaw, the celebrated actress, is at present engaged 1 there to perform her round of characters. She i draws as large houses as any actor or actress we ever saw. Previous to this lady's engagement, , MissTurnbull played one or two weeks, with great success. The manager of the Bowery is remarkable for energy, and his desire to please his patrons. He never looks at the cost, but produces a constant succession of dramatic spectacles. The Chatham is a neat and comfortable little theatre. It has recently come under the management of Mr. Fletcher, who is determined not to be outrun in the great race for popularity and patronage. The Adelphi company, consisting of Mr. Brougham and his lady, Mr. and Mrs. Howard, and several other accomplished actorB and actresses, have been performing ludicrous burlesques and travesties there for a week or two past with great credit. The celebrated Holland, and the Carlo family, are engaged at this place next week. We next come to Cas le Garden, which is, without doubt, one of the moat agreeable and airy places in the city. is perhaps the largest and best ventilated public place in the world ? As our readers know, it was formerly a fort, but was transformed into its present shape by Messrs. French & lleiser. The Lehman family, whose extraordinary feats on the tight rope, and J graceful ballet performances have secured for them a name of which they have reason to be proud, nightly pcrtorm there to large and fashionable assemblages. A sacred concept is given there every Sunday evening. Palmo's Opera House, from its central loca" tion, gets its share of patronage. At i resent il is occupied by the Ravel family, who performed at Niblo's before that establishment was burned. This ballet company are well known in every city in the ^Union, and perform so as to amaze and amuse all who see them. In these remarks we have referred to all the theatres, and other places of amusement in the city. One would suppose that there was no room for others, but the taste of our citizens for theatrical, operatic and ballet amusements is increasing every day; and in orderto accommodate it, another spacious theatre, to be called the Broadway Theatre, and a large opera house in Aslor Place, are being constructed When they are finished, wc shall have seven regular theatres and opera houses?a greater number than any city of the size oi New York can boast of, and more than could be supported in any other city. The increased and increasing musical taste of our people is one of the best signs of our progress. Music and dramatic entertainments elevate a people, and encourage the development of intellect. _ Personal ami Political. we learn t>y i?tt?rn irom rauaaeipnia tnat Mr. t-iay s Intention* were to Ware Cape May on Saturday morn log for Philadelphia The arrival however, of the New Haven at Cape May on Friday morning, and the opportunity it will afford him to reach tMs city on Saturday morning without fatigue, noise, or confusion, will, it is thought be cheerfully embracrd by him, in the full ex pectation of his accepting the invitation of the distinguished gentleman who accompanies the boat. State rooms have been most tasteluliy tlttad up on the New Haven, for both him and Mr. Mayor Brady. A meeting of the Mends of Henry Clay, at Boston, is 'tiled iu the papers of tbat oily yesterday morning. The meeting was to be held at the Merchants' Exchange, at nn? o'clock, P.

Tbn execution of the music waa enchanting, to aay nothing of the mantier in which the fair beneficiary drt-esed tho part, her martial air and manner woa. taken all in all, as fine a piece of acting as need be desired. We might meition the peculiar beauties of the several pieces, but it is sufficient for tne occasion to aay, that they were all received with the warmest plaudits, and wreaths aud bouquets were thrown upon the stage in profusion. All were delighted, and all (teemed to rejoice alike at tne aucoess of tbe caudidate for the favors of tho assemblage. Besides the rich musical treat, the audienoe were amused by tbe performance of three farces, ' 40 and 60." the " Secret,'' and " A Kiss <n tbe Dark," making altogether decidedly the grout est bill of the season.

Plaudits the moat tumultuous are awarded her the moment she makes her appearance on the stage ? Although long accustomed to auoh compliments, Mrf. Sbaw cannot but be affected by them. Mr. Clarke's r*ccptlon, too, ig highly flattering. His good points never scape observation and applause. Mrs Shaw will repeat her personation of " Ion" tlxla evening.

The drama of the " Carpenter of Houen'' will form the afterpiece this These two pieces, and the manner in which they are oast, will attraot so large an audience, that we think it would be advisable for gtntlernen who intend taking ladies with them, to secure seats early in the day. Chatham Theatric.?This is the last night but two of the engagement of the Adelphl company, and It is the regret of all who have seen their performances, that they leave uj so soon. We must make up fbr their loss as far as we can, by peeing them every night while they remain here. They will appear this evening In three capital pie' es?the " Maid of Crolssy," the " Irish Dragoon, or Wars in Chancery," and the extravagant*!, " Our Tom Thumb," which has been reoeived. everv night of It* performance with rapturous applause.

Garden theatre though uot built for jo large a company, resounded beautifully, too much, perhaps; and never at the Turk did we eujoy better the roices 01 leaesoo, rereui. vna. anu riovein. law tbl? slugers showed themselves equal to the reputation thuy have acquired during their engagement in our oftj. Tedeioo possesses the belt quality of Toiee, and most refined musioal talent heara in the United States, since Mall bran and the late Madame Damoreau The best proof of the truth of our criticism, is the reception given to this lov<l> woman by her numerous admirers, who rushed to Castle Qarden to hear the sweet nightingale. Wheii she first appeared on the stage, she was received with enthusiastic applause. The chorusses sustained their well established reputation; they were perfect of mtemble and intonation Ardlti and Botesini, at the head ul the musicians, led' the partition of Verdi with that skill and soience for which they are so renowned " Hernanl" was again declared the best opera oi Verdi? the admirable introduction, the delloioux Hong of Todesco in the first act which we so often noticed, tbo incomparable finale of the third act, in which the prima donna accomplishes so many jiotiluret, and displays such a talent with her cadencet and pontes de voix; all these bright gems delighted their enchanted hearers, who. when the performance was over, called before the curtain Tede.-co. Pcrelli, and Vita, and expressed to them their real admiration. The opera of " Norma" will be performed to-morrow night No doubt Castle Oarden will be as well tiled as it was last evening. Castle Uaboen.?The Lehman family resume, this evening, their graoeful performances, together with the talented English vaudeville oompany. The eTening's entertainment will begin with " Le Chalet," so well played by Messrs. Holland and Walcot. The exercise called the " Ne Plus Ultra," which is displayed by M. M Lehman and M'lle. Julie, will then take plaoo ; and we declare we have never seen a more stupendous feat on the tight rope. It is worth witnessing. .Mr. Charles Wintner will also appear ; and the whole will conclude with the ballet of " Les Moissonneurs," in which M'Ue. Adelaide is so graceful and dances so well. The Ravels at Palmo'i Opera House.?These wonderful acrobats perform this evening for the third time, and have made out a bill whioh will attract undoubtedly an immense audience. The entertainment begins with "'Twos I," followed by the famous exercises on la cordt raide, Gabriel Ravel in a Chinese pas, Leon Javelli with his daring exploits, and la petite amoui in her childish and graceful dauoe. The comic pastoral pautomime of ' La Kete Champetre" comes after, with a pus de deux from Natalie by Madame Leon javelli and Henry Wells The whole to conclude with Let Tableaux f'ivans, "The Italian Brigands." The Ravels are great comedians, indeed. Virginia comical geniuses give another conceit at the Minerva Rooms this evening, on which oocasion they offer a now set of choloe performances, vocal and instrumental. They are certainly worth hearing. The entertainments of the evening conclude with that most irresistible of burlesques, " Stuffo." Who would not shake their s.des with laughter must eschew the Minerva Rooms during the evenings of this week: but all who would, for an hour or two, forget care and enjoy themselves, may venture to go. " Mirth rules tbe hour." The performances are divided into two parts; in the first the serenaders appear as dandy darkies of the north, in tbe second part they enact the plantation slave of the south?and both are well done. Thk Hi-ohei Family perform this evening at the Tavllion, Rockaway. No doubt these favorite musicians and vocalists will have a good house. The Little General and thk Trustees ok Saratoga.?(Jen.
