Mr. Polk Md tks Hope, The recent intelligence from Italy continues to be intensely inter?8ting. The liberal movement begun by the present Pope is still making progress in that beautiful peninsula. In Sardinia, Tuscany, and even in the Neapolitan dominions, the spirit of improvement is tending onwards. Of course, Lombardy, under the iron do'iiiiiion of Au>tria, is at a stand still. His Holiness maintains his attitude with great pcrsever ance and much tact. He has already astonu-ned all Europe ; and eveu in this country he has created a sentiment deep and durable. According to our laat accounts ,the secret agent of the British government had reached Rome, and the influence of that great power ia now extended in favor of the chief of that church which was banished from England cehturiea ago. What an astonishing spectacle, to see the British government of this day defending the Pontiff from his own religious adherents in other parts of Europe ! But the truth is, his holiness is equal to the spirit of the age; he is coming back sgtin to the first principles of Christianity?those principles which throbbed in unison wiih the liberties of the people, in opposition to old imperial Rome. He is combining the dtstiny of the Roman Church with the intelligent movements of the age In such a position of thing** at Rome, ought not the United States, the greatest of all free countries in Christendom at this day, to open diplomatic relations and express its sympathy with the illustrious pontiff! There is nothing to prevent Mr. Polk from sending in immediately to the Senate, at the opening ot Uougress, tne nomination 01 u uipiw. i rnmc agent to Rome, either a Charg* d'Affair**. or an ambassador. We thick the country would prefer the latter nomination, aa more respectful to the Pope, and more suitable t<*our dignity and greatness as a people. It is understood we believe generally, that Mr. Polk belongs to the 1 "straitest seel" of the Presbyterians. If such 1 be the fact, what a fine opportunity is here pre- 1 sented him of doing honor to his own sect, by an act demonstrative of liberal and noble feeling, showing the absence of all that religious bile, bitterness, and bigotry, with which many believe his sect to be imbued against their Roman Catholic brethren. The idea has got abroad, and seems to be settled down upon at Washington, that Mr. Polk is estopped from doing such an act as this of which we speak, and which we are sure would be gratifying to the people, by the course he formerly pursued when a member of the House of Representatives, on the question of the nomination to Panama. We apprehend this to be a great mistake, founded upon a most superficial understanding of the subject. On the occasion F?r<?ail in Mr PnlU nir*ri*rl 11 rp unl ll t i on nu follows: " That it In the constitutional right and <lnty of the House of Rapreimtattree, whan oalled on for appropriation* to defray the expense* of foreign miaaiona, to deliberate an tha expediency or inexpediency of anoh ml* sinna. and to datarminaand act thereon aa in their judgment may be aioat conducive to the public good " Here ,it will be seen Mr. Po k assumes, and very correctly too, that it is the right of the people to determine and act upon such a matter, ultimately, as they judge best. Now we are ready to maintain that public opinion has already settled the point, and determined that such an embassy is in all respects desirable. Mr. Polk does not, in this resolution, lay down the principle that no nomination is ever to be sent in by any President until the House shall first have determined and agreed upot its expediency; but simply that,with or without a previous nomination, in all cases, and in any case, the ultimate right and power belongs to the people to decide upon the expediency or inexpediency of such matters. Would any man in his senses maintain that before the President sent in the j nomination of a consul to Liverpool, orValpa- i raiso, or Trieste, or to any other place, for the j first time, that first he is bound to consult the House,by asking, "may I be permitted to send in a nomination for such and such a place 1" We think another reason offers itself with some , force, showing why the course of an immediate nomination would be most advisable. There are many members irom peculiar amiriciH who , would feel theniwelves bound, in deference to the prejudice* of the ignorant and bigoted among their constituents, to make a great show of opposition to such an embassy. Let them be spared . this grievous infliction, as no doubt they gladly ! would be. Let the country be spared the expense , of an idle debate of some dnyp, by sending in the nomination at once, as a matter of course. In the meantime, we see a certain sect of fussy people in this city making a great effort to get up meeting! and nddresaea to be sent to Rome, with the objcct, no doubt, that they may figure in bar room associations as friends of civil and religious liberty, in connection with the movement m Italy. All this is ridiculous and absurd.? The government of this great country is the , only proper representative of the general feeling?the only organ by which to send to animate and cheer the heart of his holiness by an immediate mission to Rome. This would be received and understood there, and would produce au excellent effect, not only in Italy, but in the whole of Europe. The position which this j country holds before the world, as one of the i greatest powers, in a military, commercial and naval capacity, will carry weight in Europe.? Here at home, we have nearly a million and a half of Catholics, adherents to the church and faith of which the PoDe is the chief, and the utmost liberty, both civil and religious, is enjoyed among us by all sects of Christians. In a short time, probably, we shall have under our dominion ten millions of people in Mexico, all of them Catholics. It is, therefore, of some importance that our relations with Rome should be upon the most friendly fooling. Mr Clat's Speech 'This great document has not yet come to hand, but we expect to receive it in a day or two. Previous to the meeting at which that speech was made, it appears there were some secret movements in private circles, among the friends of Mr. Clay, organizing themselves for the next Presidential campaign. In thess meetings a very remarkable attack was made on General Taylor, in which his patriotism was acknowledged, his victories admitted, but his popularity underrated, and the Taylor meetings throughout the country ridiculed. It is very evident from these and other movements, that the friends of Mr. Clay, in the whig party, are determined to make him their canaiaate, at all hazards, whether General Taylor or Scott be allowed in the field, or not. In this quarter, the friends of Mr. Clay are strengthIemng themselves very much, duriug the last Tew days, and we woulu not be much surprised if the whole of the whig party, notwithstanding the position taken bv Mr. Clay, were to unite in one determined effort to support him ?s the jieace candidate for the Presidency, in opposition to Yt. Polk, or tiny other man, as the war party Matters are effervescing in both parties, and although much log prevails at the present time, we expect to see soine sunshine in a few months. Hm P>Mf s la lupiJHw Vatftsd tain. The United State*, at tjle present time, occupiee a proud and honorable position among the nations of the world. Suiting, as ahe did, with a litiloover three million* ot inhabitants, ?>he lias, in an incredibly ahorf time, assumed * position as the second mostenlightened?th-ae#ond great* eat commercial?the freest, and we may say, the greatest nation in 'physical, agricultural and mineral resources in the world. The cause of thia unprecedented elevation in so short a time is, without question, our institutions and forms of government, which have the effect of developing, in the broadest manner, the physical and mental energies of the people. The United States j la rapidly effecting changes, by moral influence,in (he countries of the old world, while at the same 1 time, it is looked up to as the saviour of the | starving masses of England and Ireland. She has saved the lives of millions of people during the lest year, who would have perished by famine if this country was not in existence. From the fountains of her b?*nifioence she has sent ship lo .d niter ship load of the staff* ot life to starving Ireland; and has created a feeling iimong the people of that country, which, in the emphatic language of th* Dublin Nation, will stay the pulling of a trigger against us for all time to come. The thanks of famishing thousands have been our reward, while we are considered as the last and never-failing resource in similar calamities, and in the honrof need. The recent intelligence from England gives a melancholy picture of what will, in all probability, again take place. The most gloomy forebodings are entertained by all, and it is generally conceded that the supply of food is entirely inadequate to the demand. Already the eyes of the people are cast towards the land of hope, una already are the people demanding and beseeching of the government to act speedily for their relief, and not delay until the crisis is upon them, as was the case last year Government lias announced its determination to take measures speedily for that purpose, and it behooves them to do so. The commercial credit of the country has been shaken to theoentre, and angry cries are heard in all quarters. Dissatisfaction, riot, and tumult, prevail to a frightful extent in Ireland. Thousands of workmen are thrown | out of employment in England by the stoppage of the mills?bread must b? had; for j famine knows no bounds. Indeed, it may be < aid truly that there never was a time in the ] history of England when that country abounded <o fearfully with the elements of discord and j revolution?overburdened with a vast national I Jebt, wh; :h, in the nature of things, never can be J iaid? oppressed with taxes and poor-rates? i dissatisfied with an expensive government, J which, after all, is incompetent to relieve the i necessities of the land. A great portion of the j masses see no end to their miseries, except in j revolution, by which a new order of things J would be instituted. Ireland is now in a fright- , ful condition?England is not much better, and ' will be < q'lally us bad before many months. With nil these elrments in motion, it will re- 1 <juire a skilful hand to eteer the-ship of State , clear of the numerous shoals and rocks that sur- j round her. The first false movement, and her , Jestruction is inevitable. The first symptom of ' faintheartedness, : nJ the storm will b?at with J unnbateable and teinfic fury; carrying, in its i course, civil war and a complete subversion of ! things as they now stand. In the meantime, corn and breadstufl's will soon commence to go a^ain forward. The igents of the British government will soon be iiere purchasing; our almost inexhaustible granaries will be called upon for their contents; prices will rise ; specie will flow iu; and the United Slates, from the very destituton of the old world, will reap the means of further greatness. But what would the fainishiag masses do if there was no America to call upon? Jealous as the go/ernmenfs of Europe are of our national greatness and the spread of our political principles?fond as they are, through their organs, of belittleing us in every possible manner?circumstances beyond their control, force them, though reluctantly, to acknowledge that in agricultural resources, the United States has-no parallel. While admittiug ihis, they admit our strength in other respects; for agriculture is the basis of the power of every nation. The times are pregnant with big events. No one knows what a week or month will bring forth in the old world. Italian Opera Opening of tMe Aftor Theatre. Last evening was a memorable era in the fashionable and meteorological annals of New York. The weather was unpropitious outside? it was dark, misty, grisly, disagreeable, doubtful, deceptive. The first appearance in the interior of the Astor Theatre, of the new Italian i troupe was equally doubtful, dark, when the { chandelier was out, foggy, uncertain, vociferous, applauding, and all sorts of noises, and all sorts of feelings in private. uch a rush of well : dressed ladies, ill dressed gentlemen, beautiful female faces, and Wall street-worn male coun- | tenancea, was never before seen in the history of | Manhattan Island. As the carriages rolled one , after the other up to the entrances, discharging loads of beauty, elegance, diamonds, lace, in all , the varieties, of music and millinery, the mind ! was lost in the contemplation as to what would be the results of all these doings, at the final settlement of accounts next spring. The rent is al- j ready paid?but how will the poor artists come out? When all were seated, the coup d'ail of | the house was beautiful in the extreme; it was , filled from top to bottom, from pit to gallery, from the fo?t ot the mountains 01 numanuy up i to the upper edges of the clouds of heavenly sentiment. The only drawback waB the half hour of deficient gas and light. But what can be said of the troupe 1 of the ; prima donna, the tenore, the baito, of all of them, from the first ma sger down to the very lamp; lighter 1 The applause, from time to time, was i vociferous : thump, thump, thump ; bravo, bravo, i bravo. Opinions, however, as to the aggregate r< i suit were varying and contradictory, fat and lean, like port; steaks. The troupe, it was suid I T many fitst-rate critics, was the best we had evt'r had in this city, not even excepting the Garc a company. Oh! oh' But what would good judg say 1 what would the real critics determine !? We think that the best way is to consider thrm for the season as the best troupe?the finest artists?the most interesting divinities, that ever have been in New York, from the first era of the I Italian ojirra to the present day. But notwithstanding such an indulgent opin| ion entertained by many, there were others who i said that such vocalists could not pass muster in London or Paris, even as third-rate artists. Yet i we have enthusiism among us, growing as rank an prairie gra*s ; and numbera there are extra! vagant in feeling, energetic.iu action,who maintain that Grim and Jenuy hind have found their 1 match at last in the A^tor Tneatre of New York; , 111ut we are a happy aud lucky people in having imported from Italy, unknown to all t ie reat of Europe, artists of the first talents, whom none ever dreamt or thought that we could obtain. We think we shall side with this party, and shall regard the troupe a* *qual to anything in Fans or London. We do so, because it is a delicious and pleasing fancy, snd corresponds with the position we have been gradually assuming in the other departments ot human life? in war, in trade, in cotton, in corn, in whiskey, in sausages. We mean to make New York the metropolis of the world, and to compel London to vacate iter pott. We mean to make Paris take I 4(k? iMhion* from Brrtdway, m *oan m tthohed ap; aid all the rest of Europe to imitate what takee plMa here, both in war tod commerc*-?m paying debts, tad paying dividend#?a# well note3 of baud as no;e? ot mu?ic. Upon the whole, however, last evening waa a brilliant leccption. The company waa brilliant ?the house brilliant?the diamonds brilliant? I the eyee brilliant?all but the everlasting chan| delier. Everything went oft with the greateat ! Iclat, and in the present movement, in the midst ; of doubt and difficuly among the critics, we are ; determined to believe that Grisi and Jenny Lind are not such extraordinary singer* after all ; that j Tamborini, Rubini, and even the great La- i i blache?great in fat and circumference truly? i are nothing at all beyond those whom we can produce at a dollar a ticket in New York. We have paid fifteen dollars, retail price, for one seat, to hear Jenny Lind. To hear our prima donna is only 87J cents, cash in advance, wholesale value. Of course you get more music for a shilling in New York than in London?and eve? till more of muah and milk. On the whole, the fair vocalists of the troup* are a fair average of Italy; but the males are only from fair to middling, and even a shad* below that. But, wait for another night. The fashionable world is now oompletely or gnnised?the opera is successful?white kid gloves are all the go?and the canaillt must keep themselves at a respectful distance from Astor j Place hereafter. Read and obey. Important Political flwumnui The following circular appears in the Western papers. It appears to have been issued previous to the recent meeting in Lexington, at which Mr. Clay made his great speech. It is the com* mencement of the movement made by those whigs who are favorable to Mr. Clay's nomination for the next presidency. So Mr. Clay, on the whig side, and|Mr. Van Buren, on the locofoco, are both up for the next race. More coming. Lbxinotow, Kr , October, 1S47. MDe?r airTi. members of the whig party, we address you. as a whig, to communleata whut wa believe to be correct, end we hope acceptable and useful information, in regard to publlo sentiment in Kantuoky, on tha sabjeot of the next rresldantial elaotlon. Wa are residents tnd oititens of the oity of Lexington, and several of u* wera mem bar* of the general wlJg oommittaa for tha State of Kentucky in the oanvass of 1844 Bat as that Bommittee terminated its official existenoe by the presidential eleotlon <>f that year, and no other State committee has slnoe been appointed, we do not on this ooca>ion assume an official oapaolty. There have been various public meetings at different plaoes In Kentucky, during tha preaent yaar, at which General Taylor was nominated for tha presldanoy ? from the newspaper acoountu of them, in which they ire generally described as large mee'lugR of both political partial*, erroneous oonoeptions may prevail as to tha s? tent of their number*, and as to their being a full rX- ' pression of the public opinion ot Kentucky. i beae ' meetings generally have been thinly attended, have been generally gotten up by essiduout oonoert and arrangement; and In no lnstanse was the great body of either party in the counties where they were respectively tiolden in actual attendance. They were oomposed of notne well-meaning whigs, some doabtful whigs. and a Few locofocos. Of the latter we firmly believe that the greater part will desert, and arrange themselves under the standard of their awn party, whenever it is raised, ind that their main object in participating in these 1 meetings was to sow dissensions and disoord, that their 1 party might profit by them. The meeting held in this city on| the 18th of last month, at which most of us were present, is a fair specimen of those meetings generally. The county of Fayette, in whioh Lexington is situated, has about 'J,000 voters; ?nd yet, at that meeting, less than 200 persens voted, tome of whom were from other ooantie*. A majority, tfter full disonssion, determined to postpone any nomination until April next; and, notwithstanding this fair decision, the minority, consisting of ninety-seven persons, after the retirement of the majority, proceeded to pass resolutions, to adopt an address nominating Oen Taylor, and, without noticing in it at all the vote for postponement, ohai acterlsed Itself as a large meeting ; without distinction of party. Another example will serve to portray the true character of these public meetings. In the neighboring county { of Bourbon, (where a late one was held,) a paper, as we learn, was previously and Industriously circulated to obtain signatures to attend a meeting, and pledged to 1 nominate Oen. Taylor. A call was then made upon the ; people of tbe onunty, without discrimination, to assem- i bleat the courthouse for that purpose; but it being apprehended that if there were a general assembly of the j people, the proposed nomination might not be sanotlon ed, a subsequent call oonflned the invitation to the friends of General Taylor exclusively. Accordingly they assembled, and the Hon. Oarret Davis addressed the meeting in opposition to any present nomination, und moved a postponement. But the chairman pro- i nounoed tbe motion out of order, and the question was not put. There is reason to believe it would have been curried, If put, notwithstanding the previous commit lueufc ui ua?iijr vi wjuw iu vwvuu?uu?. We do not intend to deny great popularity to General : Taylor. His brilliant military viotoriea?a belief In tail honor, probity, and patriotism, and a persuasion that he | has not been fairly dealt with by the administration of ibe general government, have rendered him a favorite. > And we go further, and state our belief that if he should ! obtain, In a national oonventlon, the whig nomination i for the presidenoy, he would obtain the tote of this ] State, fa that oontingenoy, we should ourselves vote | fur talm?we are his friends. But in the event of that nomination being oonferred j on Mr. Clay, we arejust as sure that he would ootain the i vote of this Slate. The great body of the wtaigsin Ken- j tuoky remain Arm and unshaken in their attachment to bim and to his prinoiplea, and we believe that no lneon- I rlderable number of the other party are desirous of easting their votes for him. The position of this gentleman la^fe ill known as to supersede the necessity or any particular explanation of it. After the unfortunate issue of the last presidential election, he rellnquisned all expectations or ever being again a candidate for that office, or of re-entering into publio life. He accordingly devoted himself to bis private affairs, and to occupations incident, to his retirement. He has not, we are persuaded, the remotest wish to have his name again used In any doubtful oontest. If he believed that a public declaration from him. that he would never oonsent to the uso of his name again aa the candidate for president, would promote the interests of the whig party or the country, (which he thinks are indissolutely united,) be would not hesitate to promulgate such a declaration. But, in the absenoe of any oonviotlen to that effect, he has deemed it most fitting aud proper in him to remain silent and inaotive, abstaining from all efforts to attract public attention to blmseli, . and leaving the curreut of the popular feeling and . opinion to run in its own self-maue channel, undisturbed by him. He has therefore anoouooed to the world no resolution whether he would accept or decline a noml- 1 nation tor the presidenoy. We feel perfectly sure that ; he would not acoept it unless it migh be tendered to him under suob a ooncurrenoe ol Weighty circumstance! (such, for example, us a decided manifestation of the > <eishes of a majority of the nation, and a continuation of Uis present excellent health,) as that all oandld men ? ma agree that U wan a matter of duty on his part to acoept, and Ihst tin ought not to decline it; and we doubt not tbat be will, tu due time, signify his determination to remain In private life, if he should be satisfied that ucb a course is neoesaary to the sue few of the great otune whiob he baa ?o long and ao Sealously espoused. We have thought It expedient ani right to put you in , possession of tbe fact*, view*, and opinions which we ! now commuaioate. We have considered it beat that this letter should be regarded aa confidential, beoauae being thoroughly oonTinoed of the neoesalty of the greatest | harmony among all portions of tbe whig party, we desire to do nethiog to expose that harmony to tha least jeopardy; and although we are fully satfsfled of thaaoouraoy of all thai we oommunicate, a public diacuaaion of it might lead to uofriendly oolliaiona and injurious oonaequenoea.

He invited all present to give their views on the subject, and propos% means to carry out the Intention of the meeting A Frenchman, who arrived here in the seeond oabln of the Pnlladelphia on her last trip, then rose and described the manner in which he sad his fellow passengers bad been treated. He did it, be said, not for tbe purpose of making eomplalnt, but with tbe view of giv iog the meeting vim Boowiecge or toe way in wnich the affairs of the company are transacted. They were short of water?the food wu bad and unfit for nee? there were no waiter*?every one had to attend hlmaelf, and the mode )n which meals were sarved up wai extremely uncomfortable Captain Pace si, of tbe French steamer " New York," now in this port, waa the nest speaker. He refuted part of what the previous speaker had stated, and said that, as regards the arrangements of the oompany, great oomfort could not be expected, as the enterprise was only In its ineipiency, and everything In relation to the management of it was made in a temporary manner. He oould assure the meeting that permanent arrangement* would noon be Introduoed by which passengers and others would receive all neoeasary comfort and enjoyment.? Captain Ferrand, whose place he had taken for this voyage, on account of his sickness, had already represented these things to the oompany. A great deal of the dlsoomfort represented by the second cabin passen, gers, resulted from the dirt and fllth made by themselves ; but he, Captain Ferrand, admitted that the food waa not very good. It was, however, the same in quality as what waa given to the crew. For himself, Captain 1'aalnl said he had no doubt that this meeting. comprising as it did suoh a respectable assemblage of Frenchmen, would have a good i ff.-et There were, In his opinion, many changes n the management of these steamers necessary. The Jelny In the arrival of these vessels, and the damage caused to the freight, had been mnoh exaggerated, and that after all. whan it la taken into consideration that this Is first experiment the trips have not been ?o bad. Me had no doubt that with some alteration In the furuaees and In the rlgglog, together with some Internal arrangements wb sh were considered nsoessary these ueatners which were formerly men of war, will be as comfortable and make as good passage* a* any other I vessels of a similar kind. He bad oo to pared the working | i of the machinery and engine with that of other ahlps, j and be would dety any steamship* to werk better. M. UATIOI, on** ui our mmv rv?|w?uiuw *uu imuvu , Kreneh reaidenta of New York, responded to what ww aid by Captain Pacent. After all. h? (aid, the French ' government *u not ao mnoh to blame aa people generally mppoeed The government nurrendered tbeae ateam, art In the oondltlou of men of war?neither waa tbe company eo much to blame, aa they were oertalnly ln, experienced in matters of the kind. He thought the I i beat method to be adopted waa, to draw up a memorial, representing the facta, which the company would deaire to be tranamltted to the government, to luoiude In auoh memorial aach auggeatione aa may be conaiderad nucee?ary of the manner in which the affalra of other ateamihip oompanlea are oonduoted M CHiiLti Bociifn roae to enquire of what uae it would be to address the Frenoh government on the subj?et. It placed three ateamera in the handa of thia company. and gave up all ownerahip and control over them for the time being, and the memorial abould be direoted to the company, aa ihe Kreneh realdent* here knew no, thing of any person elae in oonneotlon with tbeae veaaels i He spoke at some lenicth on thia aubjeot, and drew lortb much Uughter from tbe quaintueae ot hia atjle, and the peculiarity of hia manner M Daowicau replied to the laat speaker, and aaaured the meeting that the government had a real oonnertioti with the ateamahipa, hut we oould not gather from hia remarka to what extent, or tn what way it waa connected with them. It wit then reaolved by a majority of the meeting preaent, that tbe memorial be addreeaed to the oompany, and not to the government Such memorial to be drawn up hy a committee whioh waa named, whioh ia I composed ot the following named gentlemen: ? vteaeera. Le Barbier, OalUardet, Becket, Caylua Uenkart, Malesleux, and Joly. M.

P*a? Thbatbk.? Notwithstanding the unfavorable tate of the weather l?ht evening, thii Park Theatre wan crowded, and amota delighted audience seldom filled the house than on this occasion During the first pleoe"The Nsrvous Man and The Man of Nerve," the vast aasemblage was kept in a constant roar of laughter the whole time. What with the Hibernian wit of Collins, and the comicalitiee of l'lacide, it was hard to tell where to breakjofl to advantage, and so, as if by oommon consent the laugh was kept up during the whole play. In the seooad pieoe, " Teddy the Tyler," matters took muoh the Mm* turn; Mr. Collins' first song, "The low backed Car," was encored and handsomely reoelved on its being repeated, but when he oame to "Widow Macree," he was called back onoe and again, m third, an t even a fourth time, and as if the song improved in the singing, the last repetition was, if possible, better reoelved than the first. The afterpiece was "Orandfather Whitehead." in whioh Mr Placlde sustained the principal character. The effect of this beautiful play wss quite as apparent as that rroaucea Dy ine eomejies, inouga 01 a ainerent Kind t was well suttilned in all the obaraetors. At the end of the first piece both Mr. Collins ?od Mr. Placlde were called out; at the eloae of the aecond Mr. Colllna, and after tbe laal Mr. Plaolde. To-nigbt the " Nervous Man" la o be again performed, with the same caat as last evening; then the oomeditta of " How to pay tbe Rent,*'In which Mr Colllna. an Morgan Rattler, will alng two exoellent aongs. Tne drama of " Napoleon's Old Guard" will then be given, and. finally, the favorite Irish oomedy of "Teddy the Tjler," In whieh Mr. Collin* will again alng thoae two favorite aong , "The Low Baoked Car," and "The Widow Macree ? Four suoh plecea in ene night. Friends. had you not better make early application at the box office? We merely suggest it. ' Bowkrt tmeataic.?List night having been&xed for tbe flrat representation of the tragedy of "Douglaa," at tho Bowery theatre, we went there for the purpose ot witnessing it, and were prepared to see every seat in the house ooeupied. The house waa indeed filled, and It waa with some dlffionlty that we oould proenre even a place to stand, with an occasional view of the stage The coetumea and properties are entirely new. Mrs' Shaw personated Lady Randolph, and did so admirably To be sur%lt was evident that the character was new to koi? Hut ?hwn dl fha fllrriimifcannna am tatran Into con* r: titration, h?r acting is entitled to every oommendation. When abe will have appeared in it two or three timei, we iball expect to see her as perfect in that charaoter as she Is in that of Ien, Mrs. Haller, See ; Mr. Clarke and Mr Mar hall understand thoroughly the characters which they appeared in, Young Norval and Olunalvon Both of these gentlemen are very excellent performer*, the latter especially. Their reading, elocution, and aotlon, are very good; and when they shall have attained a few years more experience, they will rank very hl?h in their profession, it they do not do so already They appeared to great advantage last evening The manner in whiob tbii tragedy is put upon the stage, reflect* gr?at credit on the management aud all soncorned; ?ud we expect to tee the house as well filled as it was last night, as < f ten as it is repeated, 'lhe bill whiob was performed list night, will be repeated this evening. Chatham Theatre.?The new spectacle entitled " Magna Charta. or the Birthright of Freedom." illustrating one of the most important events in the history of England, was produced at the Chatham Theatre last evening for the first time. The Inoldents oonneoted with the signing 0/ this charter are so familiar to our readers, that it Is unnecessary for us to refer to tb?m? suffice to say,that the piece is very well put on the stage, and we have no doubt that It will prove a card for the manager, and repay him all the expense be has been put to about it It is ingeniously worked up, so as to allow of mueh interesting side play, while the main facts are relieved of all dullness. It is an exoellent piece, and will be repeated this evening, with the admired pleon the " Adopted Child." Ciacui?Bowaar Amphitheatre ?The excitement at this house still keeps up, insomueh that if Mr. Tryon gees muoh farther, he will have his very horses running away with the applause whloh is nightly given; though as things go now, all his company run away with eaoh one a fair share of admiration at their elegant feats Kemp, the clown, la lrreaistibly funny In th? ring, uud his observationa on meu and manners are very ?musing. He and Williams are a pair of curiosities. The pantomime of ''Hailequln'a Frolics" oontlnueg nightly to amuae the folka-it Is decidedly a jovial affair. There are great preparations making at thla house for Thanksgiving Day. Christy's Minstrels.?This band must have a jovial time of it, going from one end of the oountry to the other gathering fame and dollars wherever they atay ; in faoti their favorite song of " Happy a re we, darkies so gay," has a great deal of truth in It. Bones and his pragmatic ostentation of quiet appreciation of applauro, is lnimi' tably amusing; the triangle, baiijoa, an4 other " gembleuieu of color,'1 are all wajra in their way. ft is needless for us to recommend a visit to Mechanics' Hall; the publlo have pronounced their verdiot long ago, and unanimously find them " boss" singers. Sahle Harmonists.?The baautlful saloon of the Alhambra Is nightly crowded with highly respectable audiences, who resort there to hear these queer geniuses, whose skill, both as musicians and vocalists, is now so well known among us. Brlgts, Plumer, Roark, and the others, are very line, and as long as the whole band con" tinue to give their musio in such thorough style, they may be sure of retaining their hold on the publio. Those who have not visited them yet, will do well to do so at once?they will certainly pass a pleasant evening, aDd In the intervals of it Niblo can furnish them some of his famous combinations In the way of refreshmenta. Uband concert.? ivir. lucnaru iioiiman, me pianitu pupil of Leopold de Meyer, will give a concert of vooal and Instrumental music, at the Tab?rnaole,on Thursday evening next. This gentleman's ability, aa a finished aitist, was well tested at the late conce t of Mr. Joseph Burke, where he performed several solos with such a dexterity of flnger, softness of touch, and elegance of execution and style, as to receive the unanimous ap plause of the audience. Hewillbeasslrtvd by Mrs. Easrcott, Messrs J?i> Burke, H C. Timin. Scbarfenberg and 8. L. Leach. The programme is very attractive ; and we promise those who may patronise his oonoert, that they will be amply repaid by a splendid vocal and instrumental entertainimBt. Miss Branson's Cokcxbt, at the Tabernacle, to-morrow evening, we expect will be quite a feature in the doing* of the week. Bat young In years, ska it old In mtitle, as many of the beauteous daughters of our best families pan testify, for Miss B has taoght quite a cumI ber of them all they know on the plane. We have no doubt that now, when their youthful lnstruotress Is Siring a oonoert, they will b? all ready to go and hear er, and not oaly that, but also Induce their irienda to go. Apart from that, the manner In which Miss B plays, and the display of youthful talent, auch aa MlaaNorthall, the Derworta, bo , who aaaiat her. will make her oonoert a highly attractive one for the publlo at large. The Mauser Family give another of their pleasing conoerts this evening, at the Tabernacle. They have met muoh success thus far. Model Artists.?Dr. Collyer la a shrewd person, and when he brought out the model art lata, he knew he bad a sure oard; but It has turned out surer than he expected. for here be Is sAll. with orowded houses night after ulght Every lover of the beautiful ought to visit the model artists. They are replete with grace and eieganoe. The ehlp Pescatore arrived yeitjrday from Havre with Mr Davis, the manager of she Orleans theatre, and the folio ving members of his oompany ; M.
