p * ?.fr 'l.,. NtiW YORK HERALD. SnTvw*. kUjr, SkptemlMr 5, 1MI. Arrival of (tea French Mttmtr Mew York. Tn<* fourth steamer of th? French transatlantic company, arrived yesterday afternoon from Newport, where she had put in, as we had previously reported. The New York entered Newport under sails, having been, for the twenty preceding hour?, without uny coal on board Once there, she was consigned to Mr. George Davis, of the firm of M ifton, Hill and Davis, under whose good cares ?h* wfis furnished with wood and hard coal, the only luel taat could be found in Newport. After havin/ tnken in enough, the steamer left Newport on Friday last, at half-past three o'clock, and cam# round Long Island, and met with a terrible gale, accompanied with rain, lightning, and then a very thick fog. Under these circumstances t ie New York was obliged to stop from 4 to 6 o'clock. She then arrived at the floating light, and took a pilot at 12 o'clock- She entered this port about 4 o'clock yesterday afiernoon, displaying the American flag at her main top, a <d the-tri-color fldg on the main peak. She fired two guns as she entered the East River. We regrn to state that a very painful accident occurred while she was steaming up that river. She was proceeding between two vessels, when dngged away by the current, she came in contact with a bark londed with sugar, and the colliosios caused considerable damage to the small vessel, whilst she broke one of her foreyards, and knocked off several of her buckets. But in addition ;.o this, tiie Meanrnr, in endeavoring to avoid i s-il boit)(cam'? in contact with the pier at the foot cf Rutger* street, overthrowing a pile of lumb'-r, and breaking the legs of Mr. Morris Moury, who was on the pier at the time. This mekucholy nccident took place in consequence, we have h iid.&f the efforts of the pilot, Mr Thomas Vail, to avoid runaing down a smVil boat which had four or five persons in it. If the steamer hid not been sheered at that moment, tiie boat would have been crushed, and all in it probably drowned. It was unfortunate that Mr Moury met with the accident he did; it was ptinful, but it could not be avoided. The great difficulty in the whole >.ffair w?s, that the officers etuld not readily understand the orders of the pilot, they being in English, and the officers French; another difficulty is in the narrowness of th<- rtv?-r; another in the current, and perhaps it is only necessary to add that in going up the E is: river in a steamer, with a strong current, every thing must be done quickly; hence the disaster. Mr. Vail is one of our most experienced pilots. The New York was finally moored at her wharf, wher* she now lies. Ttus steamship is the best of the four. Her saloons, and cabins, are indeed of the greatest elfg ince, and of the most rechercht kind. Tne New York has the same form, and the same length as the other steamers, but her deck arrangements are altogether different Instead of being divided in small blocks, and having her dining room diagonally, this staainer is arranged us the Great Western ana oinerp, c ut a aire?nor uiuwig ruuiu is iu the centre, and the cabin from item to midships. The cabin? are spacious, furnished with excellent beds, adorned with curtains made of red erimson velvet, and filled with all the comforts of & boudoir. The dining room coutains six tables, and surrounded by excellent sofas, all covered with crimson velvet. The ladies' parlor is situated on the right side of the steamer, and we advise those who wish to admire excellent saloons to go and look at those of the New York, particularly at the pretty carpets, d', and the furniture of rich velvet with which she is filled. Th? Captain's and gentlemen's parlors are as elegant in their style as the aanctuaire of the ladies. There is on board of the steamer a bath room, quite a delicious comfort when at sea. The engines veiy capital ones, werefurnislud by M M Ca* 6, from PuriB. They are of 440 horse power. Tn?* C-tptain of the New York, Mr. Ferrand, is a very amiable gentleman, about thirty-five years of ag?, and is a lieutenant of the French Navy, authorized by the minister of the navy to command this oteamsh other officers are :? M. Carlhan, 3d Captain M ChvTreMil, lut Lieutenant. M BllUr 2d do M. Michel 3d do M. Au?r?y, Sureeon. M. Demanot, Enzloner. M Bolehier Chief Steward. Th re is also on board a special agent of the Royal Mail, Mr. Thomas. This gentleman would have come to New York with the mail it he had not been prevented from doing so, by different impediments, arising from various causes. This we state in justice to him, as many think t 'at he ought to luve started immediately from Newport for this city. These are all the particulars that we have col JecteJ relutive to the New York. We must not forget this steamer which departed on the 16th, arrived at Newport on the 1st., and would have reached New York tw? da) sbefore, (on Sunday evening,) if she had not been prevented by want of coal The accident that happened in the East river, corroborates what we have written relative to the bad place chosen for the depot ol these steamships. We hope the new local agent, Mr. Dagneau, will at onoe arrang* the matter, and obtjiu a better location on the North River; 1 the East river is too narrow for ocean steamers. I Fajr of the American Institute.?We desire to give full iiotic*' of this jubilee, in time for our countrymen to share in the advantages of it.? Tho*e who wish to introduce to public notice their new or improved articles of iiny description, ought to enter them at Castle Garden. Let them be ready in time, perfectly finished, ao that there may be no room for regret, either at not being ready at ?1!, or not perfectly so. Many of our ingenious fellow-citizens have to d ?te iheir prosperity from the exhibition of their works of the fairs of the Institute. The visiteis of Mie former fairs have amounted to some two hunop'd thousand, and wc are persuaded that there will t?e a largely increased number at the u<*xt fdir. Besides the speotacle exhibited at Castle Garden, the convention of farmers, gurdners, s lk growers and wool growers, called by the institute, will meet on the 11th of October, and lollowing days. This is an important branch of the action of the institute?the great measure so earnestly prekfi'd by General Washington, the establishment of an agricultural department of the United States, the encouragement of new staples of production, and the amelioration of all others, will occupy the attention ef the convention. The all important staples, silk and wool, flax and hemp, will be well considered by the convention. Many fine samples of silk, wool, flax and hemp, with new modes of management, will be before the convention. We rust th; t our most judicious and patriotic citizens from various parts of the country, will make It a point to attend thia rnn vention. The ploughing and spading matches will be held on Long l?land, within a very convenient distance of this city. These are always cheerful, wholesome enjoyments in open air, and the object noble, to "honor the plough." T?* Atlantic Stkambx*.?The Union was to h?Te left Cherbourg on the 81st ult., for New York; the Biiunma left Liverpool yesterday Boston. New York will leave this pori fir Cherbourg on the 16th inst.; the Caledonia will leavs Boston on the 16th for Liverpool. Fri'vck Stsamkk Missouri, hence 31st ult., for Cherbourg, was spoken on the 2d instant, at 7f M , off Nantucket. X .. J.... ..J., 'f I ' I " Www Ship Samuel Rumij.l ?The fitting out of a new ship of a splendid model, and magnificently famished, in, to be sure, no novel occurrence in Now York,; but in ship building, o# in everything else with us, we are progressing, and ? look st the beautiful new ship, Samuel Russell, will convince all who have viewed the specimens of naval architecture, a1' they have one after another been brought to our wharves, that this i? -i 1 u k*>- lr inr? She hats been I iMiisine "v. ' the admiration ofnaval artisans and o'hfn, since her frame was first put together, and now that she is finished and nearly ready for her departure from our shores. We deem it no more than proper to give her this introduction to the public. If she were not worthy of especial remark, we should pot thus I introduce her; but being as near as possible the btau ideal of a ship, we call attention to her, in order that all who are fond of viewing a beautiful vessel may embrace the opportunity. She was designed and uuilt by Mr. Brown, of the firm of Brown & Bell, ship builders of no ordinary reputation, for Captain, N. B. Palmer, known aa the diacoverer of Palmer's Islands, in the Pacific, and more recently aa the commander of the East India Clipper Houqua. The Russell measures 950 tons burthen, 84 feet 4 inches beam, and a depth of 20 feet in hold; her length is 174 feet. The external appearance of the vessel is strikingly beautiful ; her great length, towering and well proportioned spars, her sharp bows, and clean and graceful run, give her a dashy, man-ofwarlike air. Her bow is formed according to the new style, no lumbering heavy cut-water, i the planking running chuck up to the outer end of the st?m, and is ornamented with a finely carved billet head, and gilded carved work along the trail board. The effect is grand, and is much xdmired by the old salt, as well as the merchant. The hull is black, with a narrow red and white ribbon streak p.round her waist; the yards black, the jib and flying jib-booms varnished and tipped with black. The deck is almost flush, clear, and unincumbered, neatly polished, and ornamented by a benutiful rnpstain, which stands abaft the mainmast; here, also, is an iron tank, even with ihe deck, which runs down and rests on the kelson; it is used for the ship water, is compact und safe, and does aw y with the ungainly c'Hsks formerly used for this purpose. The long boat, galley, and fowl-coop, are encased in a neat and well secured house. She has a top-gallunt toroastle, used only for working the ship. The sailors' apartment being between decks' ire well cured for. Capt. Palmer has introduced a new contrivance, in the shape of a force-pump, which he uscb with much advantage in washing decks, wetting sails, Ac. It forces a stream 2$ inches in diameter as high as the main or mizzen top-gallant sail. In case of fire, its use will be of incalculable value for with & hose which can be attached, any corner of the ship or ship's bold can be reached. Robinson's patent steering apparatus, which (.apt. Palmer thinks is superior to any other in use, is applied. Various other improvements are made throughout the ship, carrying out the spirit of liberality, which is apparent in every department of this noble vessel. The cabin, although last, is by no means uuworihy of notice. It is already engaged tor passengers; every room was taken up some days since. The voyage to China must, with such conveniences and luxuries as are here offered, be shortened at least one half the time usually occupied. The cabin is half poop, running two feet forward the mizen mast, and is remarkable lor its compactness and elegauce. The decorations are plain, but rich; ornamented with white enamelling, releived by gilt moulding. The furniture in the cabin and in the state rooms, >vhich are very Urge and well lighted, is of polished black walnut; the French beds are of the -tame materia!, and gracefully hung with rich French drapery ; the water closets, and uvery other convenience requisite to secure ase and comfort to all are furnished. The 'jreat length and breadth ot the vessel allows plenty of room to the cabin, which is vontilatrd tnd well lighted by a vertical sky light and the *tern windows. It has been the object of Captain Palmer and Mr. Brown, the builder, to make this vessel as near perfection as skill and money could make her. There is but one opinion?that is, they tiave accomplished what they so much deaired. She leaves on Wednesday for Canton. Thk Mails?We received a lettet from Mr. Bennet yesterday, which came from England in the steamer Caledoniu, which arrived at Boston on Thursday morning last, at one o'clock. Instead of receiving it on Thursday evening, as we should have done, if Cave Johnson's mail arrangements were properly made, it did not come to hand till yesterday morning, after having taken a trip to Philadelphia and hack. Now, we would ask Mr. Johnson whose fault was it that this letter did not reach us? Whose fruit was it that important despatches from England, directed to the government, were sent to Xew Orl ans instead of to Washington, some time since'? And again, whose fault was it that mother letter written by Mr. Bennett, and directed to this office, some months since, went the same direction as the government despatches did, viz.: to New Orleans instead of New York, particularly when the directions in all these casts were w rilten plainly. The fuel in, Mr. Johuson had be.tter leave newspaper aiticles alone, and attend more to his duties. II" may have given directions to his un Jerlings to misforward letters purposely, with the views of receiving double and treble postage, for in our case we have had to pay for the mistikes. If he has done eo, he will not increns the revenue much by it. It will be saving at the spicket, and wasting at the bung hole. Items from the Pacific.?The Lima papers ire again discussing the Flores expedition.? They translate articles from the London pipers giving both Flares' statement of his having no intention of making the expedition anything more than an emigrant one; and, again, they publish affidavits of officers he had engaged for the expedition, to whom he promised rewards, kc , after the fighting was over. There had been severe earthquakes at Ira, on the Peruvian coast, on the 28th June last, occasioning much damage and loss of life. The government at Arequipa were felicitating themselves on the fact tint Mr. A. G. Jewett, United States Charge d'Aflairs to that place, had been dismissed by hi? government. They seem to have had some pique againBt him, and look on his dismissal as a reparation to their wounded dignity. A Peruvian traveller is publishing, in the form of daily articles, an account of his travels in the United States, and wh-it he saw there. tie serine quite pleased witu our peniiem itirir*, which he gives a long account of.

The election of delegate* to nominate a Senator for the province of Kio Janeiro, had nearly ended, and thus fur had given results favorable to liberal sentiments and liberty of voting. The ministerial party have been Homewhit worsted. The final result was not known. The health of the little Pn ncess, about which such serious fear* had been felt, was p?rfectly restored, and the daily bulletins regarding her were discontinued on the 8th July.

We have received intelligence from Su Francisco to the 22ad of May last, by overlaid express, which is the latent that we have received from that distant part. From our files of the Californian, and the California Star, we extract all the items of interest. The Californian of the ISth says:? If we were to search the annals of human snSxrlng ; for centuries past, we would not b? able to find a more 1 appalling anoount than Is contained In the Intelligence receded within the last tew days from the California mountains. Nearly half of those who were detained by the ?-?rlv fall of snow,have died from starvation; and the residue have only been snatched from the Jaws of death. I by the indomitable oourage and pereeveranoe of a small band of brave men; who deserve the lasting gratitude of every cltiien of California, for their noble oonduct The names of the gallant men who went to * qulla Glover, R. 8 Mod trey, Daniel Rhodes. John Rhodes, Daniel T ucker, Joseph Sel, and Edward Copymler. The following is their narrative:? On the 13th of February, 1847, our party arrived at th? Bear river valley; 14th, remained In camp, preparing packs and provisions; 18th, left Bear river valley, and travelled 1A miles, and encamped on Yubi river: 16th. travelled three mils*, and (topped to make enow ahoes; 17th, travelled Ave miles, and camped on Yuba river? now fifteen feet deep, dry and soft; lath, travelled etcht mile* and encamped on the bead of Ynba river; I Oth, travelled nine miles, erased the summit of tbe California mountains, and reached part of the suffering company about sun down, in camp near True key'i Lake, in a most deplorable oondltion. entirely beyond description. Ten of their number had alreMy died from starvation; and several others were expected to die in oamp as they were too low to resuscitate. The whole party had been living on bullock hides four weeks. On the morning of the 30th. the party went down to the camp of George Donner. eight mile* below the first camp, and iound then??with but one hide left. Thry had come to the concluiion that when that ivat comumed to dig up the hodiau of thoit who had died from starvation and uie then at food. When the parly arrived at tbe camp, they were obliged to guard tne little stock of provision that they bad carried over the mountains on their backs on foot, for the relief of the poor being*, as they were in such a starring oondltion. that they would have Immediately used up the small store. They turn itole thr bnrktkin strings from thtir mow thou, and rat them This little brave band of men, Immediately l?ft with twenty-one persons, principally women and ohildren.fbr the settlements They left all the food they oould spare with those (twenty-nine In number) that they were obliged to leave behind; and promised them that they would immediately return to their assistance. They ware oueoeeeful in bringing all safe over the mountains. Four of the ohildren they were obliged to carry on their backs?the balanee walked. On their arrival at the Bear river valley, they met a email party with provisions, that Capt. Kerns of this fort bad sent for their relief The same day they met Mr. Reed, with fifteen men on foot, packed with provisions, who. ere this, have readied the sufferers Lieut Wood worth was going ahead with a full tbree and would himself visit them in their mountain oamp, and sea that every person was brought out. The wagons belonging to the emigrants are buried ome fifteen feet under the snow. Later intelligence received from the party, mates that the relief party succeeded in getting all the destitute emigrants over the mountains, but three of them died on the other side, one of them from over-eating. A correspondent writes as follows:? 1 am told that tbe soene of distress in their camp is indlsoribable; fourteen had already died from starvation, and not more than twelve or fifteen of the thirty left, ran be brought in, as they are too weak to walk. Lieut. Woodworth has gone io their assistance, but 1 am fearfill, from thtt ftnnAiiranM o f t.h* wauthar nn mAiin. talon the past four (lays, that they Buffered much. It ha* biwn colder here than at any other time this Mason, and haa been snowing Incessantly on the mountains. The Digger Indians, in the upper part of the Sacramento valley, hadbeoome hostile to the settlers in that seotlon, and had oommitted some depredations. Capt Kern, oomma der ef the Sacramento district, with twenty men, had gone up the valley for the purpose of chastising them. This tribe is not very warlike, and ttaey never disturb the settlements in any other way than by driving off and killing their cattle and other stock.? If Capt. Kern should meet with them he will have no difficulty In bringing them to terms. The name of Yerba fiuena has been legally changed to San Kranclseo The Calif omian states that It is now rapidly improving, and bids fair to rival in rapidity of progress, the most thriving town or city on the Ame rican oontinent. if the neoessary labor and lumber oan be obtained, from three to five hundred houses will probably go up ia the course of the present year. There i? room nere for artisans, mechanlos, and laborers of all kinds. The highest wages are paid, and will oontinue to be paid; and the highest prioe for lumber, briok. adobles and every description of building materials will be K'iven upon their delivery here, payable in cash. The Star says: ? We learn from persons who have recently arrived from Monterey, that a small party of volunteers returning from the South, were attacked while in their lamp near St Johus. by a party of hostile Indians, supposed to be of the ' Horse thieftiibe." This occurred about ten days ago It being night, and the men unarmed, and oot apprehending danger from the Indians so near the .seat of government, were not prepared to defend theinHelves Kour of them were severely wounded, and it is (.bought that one will die of his wounds. The names of the wounded are not given. The people of S<?n Francisco are talking about estnblithing a post-ofllce there. The Califon>ian newspaper,which was formerly printed at Monterey, is now issued in San Krancisco. The following are the reasons which the editor gives for the change :? The most important reason for our leaving Monterey was not that we disliked the place or the people, for we were highly pleased with both; but we have been fortunate enough to secure a valuable landed Interest on the Da) of Mm Krancisco, on which we are laving out a town, and it is. we believe, a universal principle, that persons love to look after No. 1. We were anxious to be as near to our interest as possible; while we were satisfied that we could make IhoCahfurnian equally.if not more useful to our patrons by publishing it at this place. The U. S. ship of the line Columbus, Commodore Biddle, was at Monterey, and was to have .sailed from thence for home in July. An enterprising Yankee named Semple, has established a ferry at San Francisco. He issues the following announcement:? Persons wishing to pass the Bay of San Krancisco, will hereafter find a gooa substantial Kerry Boat at the Strait* of Carqninei. There is a good level road from ike Mint-ion of Santa Clara by the Mission of San Jose anil Amador's Ranch, distance fifty miles; from Krancisca to Sonoma twenty-tlv>? mile*; from Franclsca to New Helvetia fifty miles It will be perceived that this is the nearest and much the best road from Santa Clara to New Helvetia, and from Santa Crni to Bodega.

Kearny, by a decree dated the 10th of VlMrcli last, conveyed all the right, title, and interest of ihe United States, and of the territory of California, to the beach and water lots on the front of the town of San Francisco, to the people, or corporate authorities of said town. In pursuance ol this decree, the town was surveyed and laid out into streets eig ty feet wide, tlleys twenty leet wide, and lots fifty yards front and ninety-six yard' back. The whole c'ty comprises five square miles, according to the survey. The lots were to be eold at public auction on the 21th of June last, to the highest oidder. on the following terms: ? On all urn* oTor on* hundred dollars. one half cuh ; one fourth In one year; and Jotie-fourth In two year#, from the day of dale. Tweiity-Uvo per cent deduction will be made in favor of who improve and settle in the oily within the first year, to b? allowed in the last payment. The California editors have a high opinion of Sasi Francisco, and tliinlt it will he a great l>lace. Hear him ot the Slar:? The town of Verba liuena is no doubt destined to ba the Liverpool or New Vork of the i'aciflc Oceau. At this point will be concentrated nearly all theoomineroial enterprise and capital engaged aud invented In the I'a rifle trad#. The position of llie town for commerce in unrivalled, and never can be rivalled unless Home great convulsion of nature shall produce a new harbor on the t'acitic coast, equalling in beauty an 1 security our magnificent bay. Without difficulty or danger, ships of any bartheu can at all times enter the harbor, which Is spacloUK enough to oontain the navies of tne whole world. The extensive and fertile countries, watered by the 8aurauirnto aud Han Joaauln rivers, and the numerous na vigabl* creek* umpiring into the bay, must, when they are aettled upon with an industrious population, an they hoou will be. pour thuir produce into thin plaoo, and receive in exchange from our merchant* all their Rupplie* of mannfacturea and luxuries. All the product* of the gold, silver, oopper, iron and quloksllver mine*, wltu whioh the country abound*, must be concentrated here for manufacture aod exportation. In a few year*, our wharvM and atreet* will present a sceue of busy life, resembling thoee witnessed in Liverpool, New Orleans, and New York. Mechanics and artizam front all part* ef the world, will Book here, and we shall be in the full enjoyment of all the rlrgancie* and luxuries ef the oldeat and mint polished countries of the globe. Thi* I* no farey sketch; but. on the contrary, all who now read, may live to see it fully vrrlded. boms of the spar* of the missing launoh of the U. 8 ship Portsmouth, were found In the bay There 1* therefore no longer any doubt but that ?he waa wrecked, and that ail en board were drowned.

In spkaking of thaae sufferings, the editor of the Star aaya:?When thi* aad intelligence reaches the tttates, it will, we apprehend, oooaaion a considerable diminution in the emigration to California for a few yeare to come; but w* trust, however, it will be productive of a good re lilt, lu awakening the authorities of the Union to the aotual necessity of another and a better road to thi* country, until which la effected, a yearly oocurreuoe of similar mishaps may be expected, and emigration, at length, entirely oeasra; for the difficulties and dangers are too appalling for even the bold aud energetic emigrant to faoe, and be defer* hi* " heart'a withes'' in hopes of a better and more practicable route to California.

There waa ooldar weather in March, in California, man bm uMi experiencea inert I or twenty years. Intelligence from Tahiti.?'The editor of the California Star haa received a letter from Tahiti, dated 24th December, which says The foct of Fautahun, wblcb^bad been considered Impregnable, had been captured by tbe French troops, led on by the captain ot the corvette Benard. The French troop* having afterwards advanced and turned the positions of the native force*, they had sought submission to the protectorate authorities Three hundred muskets, a piece of artillery, and all tbe ammunition had been taken, and the general submission of the native* was expected. The new Governor General, Captain Lavard, of the French navy, was expected to arrive in January or February. Governor Bruat baa been oreated an Admiral. The Star publishes some official documents in relation to the colonization of the country in the vicinity of Sonoma. By them it appears that? Signor Vallljo was empowered by the Mexloan government of California to solicit families in all the Territory and other States of the Mexican republic. In order to colonise the northern frontiers, granting lands to all the individuals who may wthh to establish themselves there ; and those grants shall be confirmed to them by tbe Territorial government when the grantees apply for the same. Accompanying the letter of instructions was a private note, stating that? Many are the objects that the superior government has in view : but the prinoipal one is to arrest, as soon

as possible, the progress of the Russian settlements of Bodega and Ross, in ordsr to make ineffective all the ulterior designs of that government to our*, wbleh would cause great difloultltaJo the nation. And again:? " Ultimately this territorial government knows and Is persuaded of all that you have Informed it respecting tbe danger to whioh this frontier is exposed on aooount of our neighbors of the North, and it recommends that the Mexican population be always greater than that of the foreign, who, In virtue of the colonisation, should aoliolt lands In that precious portion of the territory trusted to you by the government, for which it again charges you only to give titles to tboae who may prove they merit them, bearing in mind tbe importance of the port of Bodega, and Cape Mendoolna, which points are tw ucucnciwjr lur wo pii)B?rv?non oi me national welfare. Theatrical and Musical. Park Theatre.?Shakspeare's play of Henry IV." was performed at the Park Theatre last evening,and the parts were all well sustained. Mr. Barry, as Klog Henry IV., did all that the part required; Mr. Illeld, as Prince of Wales, and Mr. Dyott as Hotspur, made capital perfermances of each of these parts; and Bass as Sir John Fallstaff, was excellent, and received the repeated applause of the audience. The management have shown by their bills for Friday and Saturday evenings, that their stock company are fully equal to the production of good plays. On Monday evening Mr. Forrest appears as " Othello," and will be sustained by Mr. Dyott in the character of lago, and Mrs. G. Jones as Dcsdemona The remaining characters are well distributed, and no deubt the play will be well performed. Bowery Theatre.?The Bowery theatre olosed last evening for a ihort time. In two weeks it will reopen under bright auspioes. In the mean time it will be ro decorated in a splendid manner, and the manager will devote himself to the preparation of several pieces, which be will produce as soon as possible. Chatham Theathe.?We are happy in being able to announoe to the theatre-going public, that the much admired Miss Clarke has entirely recovered from her late indisposition, and will, in company with Mr. Walcott. Neafle, MoCutcbeon. &*v, &o? appear in the favorite oomedy of* Loudon Assurance," at this theatre, tomorrow evening This is an announcement which we arc Hure will be well received, and whloh will add considerably to the attractiveness of the Chatham The comedy of " Bamboozling" will likewise be performed to morrow evening, and between these pieces Miss De Loralua will perform a grand fancy dance. Caitle Garden.?The whole of the Havana opera troupe will perform a grand sacred oratorio this evening at Castle Garden, from Rossini's " Moses in Kgypt." This will be the second or third time that this great piece will be performed by this celebrated company ot musicians. and we have r > doubt that it will be heard to-night by a very Urge audience We tliink our citizens will find that Castle Garden offers attractions this evening which they cannot wt-li resist.
