Jenny Lindmade her last appearance last nigl'it in "Sonnambula," an opera in which she is sai>"i to excel. I must say decidedly, that she has not jsafficient force for the character, in which my favorite Grisi is supreme. I have heard Grisi in. the private salon, and there she is>s[fine as in the' public theatre. Jenny Lind is now going rouwa me provinces to give concerts. In the concert room she pleases, from the extreme'purity and beauty of her voice, but in the higher range of the musical drama, she wants the sublime force of Griai, and also, Mr. B. says, of Malibran?still she is a wonder, and a peculiar wonder. After going the round of England, she returns to Germany. If ever she appears in Paris, there will be a prodigious controversy about the supremacy of her talents. The extreme purity and umiubility of her private character, so different from Grisi, who is both a termagant and ageaius, hus taken very much with the English nobility. A singular occurrence took place at a concert given at the palace, by the Queen, where Grisi and Jenny Lind were to sing. It seems, Jenny, overflowing with good nature, was very desirous offcn introduction to Grisi. It was given. Jeiiny was all smiles and amiability. Grisi received the advances with coldness, haughtiness, a.nd compulsion. As soon as the introduction was over, the beautiful Italian turned her back to the fair Norwegian. The tiueen, who was near by, witnessed this droll circumstance, and from that moment never entered Covent Gardeu, where Grisi performs. Leopold de Meyer, who arrived here some weeks ago from Philadelphia, left a few d&ys since for Hamburg and Vienna,where he intends remaining lor some time, to repose from his hard work in the United States, and re-establish his health. De Meyer is full of his reminiscences of the United States. He had a considerable search in London before he found us. We went with him to visit the greatest piano establishment in the world?Erurd's. Here we had a long interview with Mr. Erard, who intends establishing a branch of his factory in New York. His .pianos are certainly the finest specimens of workmanship I have ever witnessed. We went aJl ovef his large establishment, anu were snown the Queen's piano, which was there for some repairs; and also one for Prince Albert, which pleased me the most. I allude to the outside?it was much more simple than hers, nnd showed better taste; but they were both beautiful. The Queen's I saw four years ago, in Buckingham palace. De Meyer played on each ol them for us, which was, I assure you, a rich treat. He expresses himself pleased with his success in America, and speaks warmly of the kindness he received from the Americans He has probably made eighty thousand dollars. In fact, De Meyer, Ole Bull, and Fanny ElBsler, are the only great artists from the continent who have made large fortunes in the United States. De Meyer was pressed here to give concerts? i L j r t..j pj.. UIIO IlttU ill V ilclliuiin 1IU1II i^uiuuui^ uuu viorgow, but he declined, intending to return next season in fresh vigor, and create his usual sensation, for he is a great favorite with the public here. 1 have been trying to persuade Cerito to come ttf America, but she dreads the sea. She is a lovely creature, and has made the greatest sensation of any danttuie,wherever she has appeared. She has also a very fine private character, which is unusual in a damtust. Monsieur Perrot is her husband, also a fine dancer?indeed the first mi.de dancer of the day. I think the bounding leap of Cerito, when she first appears on the stage, is the most wonderful and most, graceful movement imaginable. Y"ou see her as if flying in the air, like some etlie rial being. The applause, after the first movement, is deafening, and indeed all through, as long as she appears on the stage. I do not yet despair of inducing her to come to America; indeed I should like it much, because I know what a treat it would be to a great many who cannot come here. She does not look over eighteen, nor 1 believe is she more than two-and-twenty. A lovely form, and line face. I have seen her and Taglioni repeatedly in the same dance together, and really I prefer Cerito. In the first place, she is youngermuch more beautiful, and equally graceful, and her bounding leap, when she first makes her ap prurance uil lUC amj;r,ia uuiiuciiui uuu ijuuc uj r ginal. Taglioni also makes some singular movements, one of which is as an imitation of a proud horse prancing, and then gaily gallops round the stage?then such a shower of bouquets, which Bhe really merits.

The Yellow Fever in New Ori.kans.?The New Orleans Delta has anticipated our suggestion, that the papers of that city should publish a daily list of interments during the prevalence of the epidemic there. In another column we publish a list, copied from that paper, of the in" terments lor the 24 hours, ending at 6 o'clock, P.M., on the 7th inst.

A bridge is about being built over the river Saramaguaoan, near Neuvltas. The plan aoeepted is on* proposed by Mr. John Katon. a gentleman from this country. A fifty gun Spanish man-of-war, (name not given,) arrived at flt. Jego de Cuba on the 10th of August, from 8 pain. Krom the Havana papers, we learn that an extra session of Congress had been summoned by the President of New Granada, to despatch lone speoial business. We return our thanks to Capt. Kieh, ef the Chllde Harold for his attention In always giving full shipping reports,and we should feel thankful if other Captains would always follow his example. Imtki.i locnti rsoM Bardadou ?We buve received a few numbers of the Barbadoes Mtrrury and tflois by a lat? arrival,to the 12th ult, from whioh we learn that the anniversary of the dentrurtlve hurricane which visited the Island In 1*31, was generally observed as a day ,1 of humiliation P. ' ..! -J- li ' TN W??nn tf tha According to the monthly report of the Treasury Department for August, it appears that the amount of money in the hand* of the Assistant Treasurers and in the different mints, was $3,727,051. This comprises the whole available I capital of the government. The other resourced | are not so tangible, but are, however, available at short notice. I It appears by the report of the register of the Treasury, that the whole amount of treasury notes outstanding on the 1st instant, was $15,808,-139 31, of this more than fourteen millions were of the issue authorized under the act of January 28,1847, leaving but about nine millions of the amount authorized yet to be issued. The resources of the Government to carry on the j war, from this to the time Congress convenes, 1 are pretty well reduced, and unless something is done to lessen the expenditures, there will be a deficiency before ways and means can be provided for raising more muney. The expenditures of the government during the past year have been about one million of dollars per week, and there is every probability of the expenses continuing at this rate so long as the same policy is pursued in carrying on the war, which has marked its progress thus far. It is full twelve weeks from this to the meeting of Congress, which, with the two weeks elapsed since the financial reports alluded to were made, make a period of fourteen weeks, equal to an expenditure of at least fourteen millions of dollars. It is impossible to make an estimate, with any degree of correctness, as to the amount of revenue likely to be received from customs from the 1st of September to the 1st of December, but we do not anticipate an income of more than five millions from that source. The aggregate resources 01 me goverimieni I from all souroes, up to the 1st of December, with | the amount of funds now on hand, will not vary much from eighteen millions of dollars, and the expenditures, for the same period, we estimate at fourteen millions. This will leave a surplus of four millions; every cent of which will, without doubt, be expended before Congress gets ready to provide ways and means to carry^on the war. We are rapidly running up a respectable sized debt. On the 1st of December, 1847, the aggregate amount of the debt of the general government will not vary much from sixty millions of dollars, the annual interest of which will amount to a pretty handsome sum. If our indebtedness was arrested at that point, there would be no cause for apprehension, but we see no immediate prospect of any suspension of out extraordinary expenditures. Millions must be piled upon millions to almost an unlimited extent; and it becomes a matter for serious consideration, whether we shall not soon be compelled to submit to a material alteration in our commercial system, for the purpose of providing for the payment of the interest on the immense debt we are rapidly creating. Free Trad? In th? United States and Great Britain. The past year lias been a very important one in the commercial world, and in the commercial | history of the two greatest commercial nations in existence. It kas been an interesting era in their progress, and will, hereafter, be referred to as being the starting time of the most important commercial movement of the age. The development of free-trade principles within the past five years has been so rapid, and so general, that the modification of old commercial systems upon that basis became a matter of imperative necessity. Notwithstanding the many powerful prejudices which existed, and the tremendous opposition arrayed against them to the last moment, the adoption of these measures, calculated to practi cally demonstrate the theory, could no longer be deferred. The commercial systems of the United States and Great Britain were nearly aiinultaneously changed, and the operation of e*ich since has been under circumstances 'diametrically opposite to each other. While we have had the most favorable opportunities for the establishment of the principles of Tree trade, Great Britain has had to contend against the most adverse events. The very circumstances tending to check the progress of this system in Great Britain, have had a very favorable influence in establishing it permanently in the United States. We have been large export era, wnue ?,ngianu nas imponea mucii more extensively than usual. Although the causes which produced this state of things, have no connection | whatever with the principles of free trade, they have had a most important bearing upon them, 1 and have strengthened the opposition in Great Britain and weakened it in this country. The experiment, if such this movement can be called, is no longer a matter of farther doubt.? It has become one of the established principles of our commercial system, and henceforth will enter more largely in their formation, than ever anticipated by many of its original supporters. Eventually the most liberal construction of this doctrine will be adopted, and the literal meaning of the term be carried into practice. A 8 extraordinary as it may appear, it is nevertheless true, that the government of Great Britain was forced into the adoption of a more liberal free trade system, than it would under other circumstances have established. The de- j liciency in tne narvests 01 me unueu mngaom, hastened the movement, and gave its advocates an opportunity to bring the question to a crisis at once, whtch they were not bIow in availing themselves of. The deficiency in the harvests of Great Britain aided this country very much in increasing its exports,and in establishing markets abroad for our breadstuff's. The importations have increased in a corresponding proportion, giving a favorable opportunity for the operation of our revenue tariff, and the consolidation of our new financial and commercial systems. The Mexican war has been th? only drawback we have experienced; and had it not been for the immense drain of capital from the channels of trade, for the purpose of providing the sinews of war, we should have reached ere this, under our new commercial organization, a state of prosperity unprecedented in the history of the country. The present position of all the great manufacturing interests of the United States, is highly encouraging. The necessity for protecting these branches of industry has disappeared, and if it ever existed to an iota of the extent argued by the protectionists, they have outgrown suoh support, and now stand firmly upon their own foundation, independentof all aid. They hive become so strongly established, that they can sustain themselves under any commercial system that will support the Government. We are as able to remove at once every remaining restriction upon commerce, as any nation in the world ; and so rapid is our progress in every species of industry, such is the economy of our Government, when its expenditures are confined to their ordinary channel, so great the domestic resources oi the country, that we are compelled to adhere to no system which does not give us the most unre- j stricted commerce the most sanguine free trade advocate ever dreamed ot. We progress as much in ten years as any other country does in a century, and it is therefore difficult to tell what changes a few years will bring about.

His acting is spirited aud ood. | sistunt; his perplexities, his ingenious devices and resorts, his easy assurance, his drollery of expression, are i infinitely amusing ; as are, in the other, his vulgarity of i manners, his happy turns of coarse wit, and hia uproarious fun. In parta like these the house is kept in continual good homor, and often burats out into the mo?t loud and unrestrained laughter. His native tongue is here heard to great advantage, and gives such piquancy to every Hash of wit and merriment, as to be in itself irresistable. He identifies himself perfectly with the character, it is a thing of real life, full of natural spirit and impulses, and of natural energetic action; the very Irishman we have among us in low life?warm hearted, impulsive, brave, generous, shrewd, rich in humor and full of fun, and with a love of fight paramount to &11< taking fire at the least affront, and recklesnly periling life and limb in ? trivial quarrel.

Register ] We hear, frun all quarter* much complaint in relation a to the delay attendiug the .prosecution of the work on the initio's aud Michigan canal. These oouiplatntu A are not ofie ent orl{iu. We hail cherished the hope that a all foundation for t^n would noon be removed -hence, (, our tilence on tbe subject. We had hoped that those u ! to whom the manageiU"Ut of the caual had been confided. would noon beirtu to do their duty; but If half that. is j, i told of them may be believed, there is now but little rea- u son to hope for better things at their hands. t] It is df*iruble to the state, to the people, and to the u houd olders, to have the canal completed at as early a day as practicable, and the great interests involved in the enterprise should stimulate to the utmost exertlon those who have the supervision of It The state wants the revenue which is anticipated from it, the people want an outlet to market, and the bondholders want o the prooeeds of their Investment, ot which they have had 1the promise, and which they trnsted would not be with- h held from them through official mismanagement, or ? something more criminal To secure the objects named, o the loan of sixteen hundred thousand dollars was agreed to, and good taith and common honesty require that the n just and reasonable expectations of all the parties to the ? negotiation,should be realized]wlthout unnecessary delay. H The immediate parties to the arrangement have done ? their duty. The bond-holders have paid their instal- , ments, as the fuads were required, aud the last instal- ^ ment, which falls due this mouth, will be promptly met, Why, then, does the work progress so slowly ? The board of trustees consists of three, one appointed * on the part of the State, and two on the part of the bondholders. The State trustee reoeives $i,600 per annua; the other two receive $5,000 each. The State trustee is o located on the line of the oanal, and devotes to it his whole time and abilities. The other two live a thousand miles away from the line?one in Washington?the other In New York, and seldom or never visit the line, though their presence there is indispensable to an efficient pro- , secution of the work They have to be consulted by the >?tate trustee in all cases of doubt or difficulty, and this can be done only by letters. Hence, mischievous 8 delays result from the epistolary consultations, which are constantly going on between the president and fo- ! reign trustees. There seems to be something wrong, not only in this mode of consultation, carried on to so great , a detriment to the canal interest, but in the disparity of salaries between the officer who performa nearly all ihu j labor, and those who do comparatively nothing. The workee gets $2,S''0, whilst those in the enjoyment.of the ?. sinecures receive $S,000 each. The people of llliuois msy possibly consent to pay this sunt to public servants who _ have neglected the work assigned to them, but we opine , mat no small opposition to it will be rained, before Kuch an outrage will be committed. Our Governor will, un- _ der the new constitution, get but $1,500 per annum, _ though his duties aud labors are as arduous an those of _ any Governor In the Union. Our representatives in the General Assembly will get but two dollars per day for a limited period, after which they are to : get but one dollar per day. The spirit of retrench- 4 ment and economy, that seems to have pervaded the constitutional convention, may have spread among the people, though we are frank to confess that we hope that s it will not oarry them so far as it has the convention. We are as willing as any one can b?, that public officers should be well paid, but $6,000 per annum, for doing nothing, seems to be rather a high salary for debt-ridden Illinois. Such a salary never will be paid. Not lone: . since, the Governor mildly but Qrmly remonstrated with the trustees against the course of things on the canal, and they pledged themselves that no further oause of complaint ahould occur; but these pledges have not been regarded. They continue to claim the same salaries, and to neglect the work. A large corps of engineers and ageats are kept in employ upon the canul, at high salaries; as large a number in fact as was required when the whole lice was being worked. As the canal verges towards completion, the number of superintendents, offloers and supernumeraries may be diminished. Wo have been informed that the business associations of the chief engineer are of suoh a character as to make it to his interest to delay the work as long as possible. He stated last winter, that the delay was occasioned by a want of hands, and when these were procured in New York, by Hoi. Oakley, the ohief engineer refused them employment, alleging that there were hands enough. The work on a part of the line in Cook county wes, for gome time, suspended in consequence of a strike among the hands for an advance of only twelve and a-half cents per day, whioh had better have been paid until cheaper hands could have been prooured, than to have let the work stop entirely. The State trustee seems to be powerless. The secretary of the board assumes all the authority vested in the board, and oontrols everything, despite the remonstrances and pretensions of the State trustee. Thus we see that the whole work is thrown into the hands ot subordinates, whose interest it is to prolong and protraot the work, if possible, forever. Another important fact is worthy of mention. It Is known thnt a large portion of land on tbe line of oanai is held by speculators IJy some strange oversight in framing the canal law, the State was prohibited from selling her lands along the line, until three months after the completion of the canal, thus giving others?the speculators?an entire monopoly of the market, to the exclusion of the State A law was passed last winter mitigating this obnoxious provision, by allowing tbe J State to sell her lands before the eompletlon of the canal; therebv oneninir a chance to benefit the bondholders. and consequently the .Statu. Throe gentlemen, well known in the Slate, weie appointed by the judges of the circuit court!", to appraise these lauds: Messrs Matteson, of Will county; Keddlck, of La Halle, and F. C. Shermau, of Cook. The law, however, was rejected by the trustees of the bondholders?Why was this? Were they under the Influence of the speculators, the engineers, the secretaries, the hangers-on generally of the canal establishment? We will not pursue this subject further at the present time. We have torborne, for a long time, te touch it, because we hoped for reformation in the premises. We hull lake it up again. In conclusion, we will add that the oanul might have been finished by at least, November n^xt, if the canal offlcrs bad done their duty. Now, it will not be ready for boats before next September. A whole season of profitable business will thus be lost. The publio revenue will be diminished, the bondholders will He out of their dividends, and the people will be deprived of an outlet to market.
