Owing to the greet length of the Importent report* from the War, Treeaury, Nary, and Poet OSoe Department#, we find onrselree oonatrelned to leeue e aupplementel aheet to the Weekly Herald of thla week. Thla supplement will contain the report* of the 8eoreterieaof the Treasury end Nary, en important deapetoh from Earl Grey, relet I re to Weat Indian Affeira, &c , end will be tenl gratvitouely to every subtcriker to the Weekly Herald. Thla is the first time that a euonle m^nt to ? wsekly newspaper of the size of the Herald iv as ever Issued. It is an instftnoe of our determination to piftoe before**)ur subscribers all the lmportftnt intelligence of the day. They will this week receive no less than sixty columns of interesting and important intelligence. The regular edition of the Weekly will contain the 1st set intelligence from the war quarter; the Congressional reports, and Interesting letters from our correspondents in Washington; the closing soenes of the Le gislatnre of New York, which was to have adjourned on the 1Mb instant; the morality of the Mexican war; the money artioles of the week; the latest market reports; all the important local news; Sec., fko., Sto. The regular sheet and supplement will be put in wrappers, ready for the malls. They will be ready at 9 o'clock on Saturday morning. No additional oharge for the supplement Important Movement. Great preparations are making in this city lor the public meeting announced to be heid at the Tabernacle, on Monday next* to respond to the movements of Mr. Clay, recently made in Lexington, Kentucky. That was the first distinct ground taken against the Mexican war, and in representing the deeds performed in that country, by the American troops, as so many murders and butcheries, while they admitted, in the same breath, that the butchers and murderers might Btill be considered heroes and brave men, in separate and distinct resolutions. Such, indeed, was the twofold aspect of the resolutions agreed upon at that meeting. A similar meeting was recently held in Philadelphia, at which the same singular opinions on the war with Mexico, and all those concerned in it, prevailed. The meeting, however, which is preparing to be held in New York, next Monday evening, is going to surpass all others in the doctrines which will there he set up, in the influence on the people, and in the superior morality of the sentiments and principles that will be expressed nt it. A number of subscription papers are going round town, collecting moneys, for the purpose of filling the Tabernacle on that evening. What a singular, free, happy, and incomprehensible country this model republic is ! At the very same time that the great capitals of New Orleans and New York are displaying their enthusiasm on the return of some of the celebrated heroes from the Mexican war, there is another portion of this free and happy people, who considers all those heroes as so many murderers, and unite their voices with those of the unprejudiced people of London and Paris, who also look on us as a nation of murderers and cut-throats. eneral Taylor, General Qmtman, General Shields, and many other distinguished heroes from Mexico, have just been received in New Orleans with tremendous enthusiasm. Col. Burnett, and some of his associate heroes,from Churubusco, havebeen received here with equal enthusiasm. The sentiments of the American people cannot be suppressed; and yet there are certain portions of this very people who are getting up meetings in favor of the sentiments of Mr. Clay, for the purpose of denouncing all those deeds in Mexico, and, by implication, of denouncing all the heroes who performed them, as so many murderers and butchers. Such, probably, will be the character of the meeting which is about to be held at the Tabernacle; and from the curious import of the resolutions that will be offered, the peculiarity of the sentiments, and the character of the whole affair, we have no doubt we shall have much to say on the matter, when it takes place, and for a long time afterwards. If the movement of Mr. Clay should be successful, and the sentiments proposed at that meeting become prevalent, we may send over to London or Paris for a branch of the family of Guelph or Bourbon to come and reign over us, an we win r>? geuing on astonishingly wall, considering what a strange and curious people we are, to go to war and conquer a country without asking the consent of Europe ! Thk Aet Union.?We receive complaints every day in respect to the mismanagement of the Art Union, by the present officers of that institution. There is an annual subscription of five dollars from each of the-members, making a very handsome sum in the course of the year the whole of which is expended in the purchase of paintings of American artists. According to thft best information we can obtain, the greater portion of this large sum is thrown away on inferior artists, and on even a few of that description. Really, there ought to be a Htrict investigation into the management of this concern; for we are much afraid there % some good foundation for the complaints that are continually pouring upon ua in regard to the present management. Thk Stkamb* Union is in her twenty-iecond, \nd fh? Hibornii in he wajfih d?y. | Niwirun Emtufrisk.? Since the openirg ' of Congress, we have given onr renders and the j public, some specimens of enterprise in the newepnper businesss. In the President's message we beat Cave Johnson nearly six hours, having published a very full synopsis of that document a long time before it was received here by hie express. In the publication of the important documents which accompanied the message, we have, almost every morning, distanced every journal in the city, one day, and some, two and three. The admirable report of the Secretary of the Treasury?of the Postmaster General, and the ottter reports, were all published in our columns, with 1 one or two exceptions, one day, and in some cases two days, ahead of every other paper. We also gave exclusively a most admirable report of i the famous sermon preached by Bishop Hughes, on Sunday last, in Washington, one of the best which ever came from the lips of that ambitious I prelate?that Cardinal Woolsey of the Irish democracy. Throughout the whole of the present session of Congress we shall continue to give iuii reports 01 every ining taxing place mere, ana of every thing bearing on the Presidential elec* Hon, probably fuller than any other journal in the country. Our arrangements, both intellectual and mechanical, are more complete than those of any other paper in the country. There is no necessity for us to say more. The people can judge as well as we can. Then, as to our circulation. Until we get our new machinery, we cannot take any more subscriptions, or increase our circulation; with our present means we print as many as we possibly can, and as it is, we circulate more than any other paper in this country, among the intellectual and business classes of society. Some cheap journals irmy circulate more, in particular wards, or in little spots of ground ; but there is no journal which has a comprehensive and general circulation in New York and in the United States, at all to be compared to that of the Herald. Som* persons ask why we don't advertise more for the merchants 1 Wt beg leave to state that we can't advertise, as it is, all that is offered to us?we have as much, and more, to do in that line, than we can accomplish, and we have to resort to every means of condensation to give us facilities. As to merchants and their advertisements,we would rather not have them?we place them in the same category as government advertisements? they are not worth publishing, for they don't pay enough. If we were willing, during the past year, to publish all the shipping and commercial advertisements that were offered to us, we could have filled a double sheet, but they are not worth the trouble. The Abolition Party in Congress.?Tte abolition party is at last organised in the Rouse o' Representatives, and it counts three immortals? Palfrey, Tuck, and Giddings. Mr. Padfrey was formerly a clergyman in Boston, a ve*y capital preacher, and made a great harvest i n the vineyard of the Lord, much about the tame time that Mr. Everett did?we mean by marrying a rich wife. We have frequently heard him preach, and thought him good. In the course of his ministry, a good looking woman, who happened to possess some Southern slaves, fell in love with him, and they weve married. Mr. Palfrey, however, was an anti-slavery man, from conscience; and he accordingly gave liberty to the slaves which his wife brou ght him, amounting in value to fifteen thousand! dollars, lie is now the leader of the abolition party in Congress, and is a determined, talented, active, intelligent, and educated man. Of Mr. Tuck we don't know much; possibly he is a lineal descendant of Friar Tuck, and if so, his sentiments on abolition will stick as forcibly by him as a mug of loaming ale did by his ancestor. Mr. Giddings, from Ohio, is well known. This party being now organized, it will possess more influence than their numbers would seem to warrant, arising from the division of the two great parties in the House of Representatives. As a counteracting influence, however, to the abolition party, we have the old and ancient and respectable party, called the " nullifiers,"?more recently called the " State rights" party?numbering, probably, as many in the House of Representatives as the abolitionists. l-.u _r .1 ? ; n.;u W C suppose UUill UI UICBC CAtCUVlfV pal Uva mil lmrdly be able to count eight or ten in the House; yet that is sufficient to control the movements of that body. They may, therefore, produce strange results, by acting with or against the others, before the termination of the session. As matters now stand, we consider that the danger to the union of the States is much increased since the organization of those extreme parties?abolitionists, numbering three; and anti-abolitionists, numbering four. They will form the upper and nether millstones of the big grist mill of politics, and may crush both parties, ia their terrible action. We hope they will have bowels of compassion, or bowels of eggnogg?we don't care which. The OcKAft Steam Links?Some of the Boston papers put forth the idea that the line of steamships which is about to commence running between Liverpool and New York, next month, is only an appendage to the Boston line, and was never intended to be anything else. We happen to know the whole affair, a little better than the Boston papers, and even better than the managers in Boston themselves. Our information is derived from those who are the best informed, viz : the company itself, in Liverpool. Now their intentions are, as fast as possible, and as soon as they can obtain the consent of the British government to the change, to transfer all the steamers, from both Halifax and Boston, and run between Liverpool and New York, alone. It ia the purpose of the company to induce the British government to send all the Canada mails through incw rorato Montreal, and to have a separate and distinct Jine of coast steamers to run between Halifax, Newfoundland and New York. We have every reason to believe, from the efforts made in England, that these purposes may all be carried into execution before the end ol another year, or at least, two. The British North American Company,in Liverpool,understand the whole affair perfectly well, and do not despair of convincing the British government of the propriety and advantage of carrying out these ideas. It is idle, therefore, for the Boston press to flatter themselves with the idea that the Cunard line will long continue to run to their port. A Strikk amono thk Saints.?Wc often read of strikes among lourneyinen of various trades, for an advance of waeea; but it falls seldom to the lot of the chronicler of daily events, to record such a strike a3 that we have referred to above.*1 1; seems, then, that the " Bible Society" has struck for more money. In order to stir up the /.eal of the pious, and to give efleet to the deed, and at the same time a strong reproof to tlfe slackening /.eal of the money contributors, they have turned adrift all the hands in their employ, and dismissed their hundreds of girls and workmen, whom for years they have employed. Wc suspect some " rust dr guerre" in all this affair. It is well known that the society,as a trader, possesses almost unlimited credit, and has long been making money handsomely. .Some scheme no doubt lies at the bottom, and to carry it out, the little means of many hundred people in this city, arc suddenly cut off. Whether thia will have, the effect of bringing out cash front pious pockets, and putting it into the hungry baga of " piety," we shall won ace Affair* in Africa ?We have had on hand lor aeveral daya a number of copies ol the Liberia Herald and Afrit'* Luminary, published at Monrovia. They are to the 13th Oct. We find in them items of general intelligence, which give an insight into the matters and things in that republic, which is destined, as its friends say, to be, some time or other, " a great country." The editor of the Luminary says:? " Thanks to a kind Providenct, we are not suffering from famine. however, aa yet; we hare plenty of nee. eaaaad tae and pain oil. and can occaaiontlly -rornre a little beef, a few plantain*, h an tones, chicken* aud fi.h." This is tall living for editors. In regard to Sabbath desecration, the editor says:? "Not nnfieqneutly de we hear the aonad of the aie aud gnu, and see native* toatiug palm oil, p.ue apple*, ftah, and other articles of traffic, through the place unmolested, aa if they were exempt from the law* which are made for the government ot Americans " The following was the published order for the celebration of the 24th day of August, when the Hag of the republic was unfurled : Spccial Obdch*. All foreign, a* well as colonial vessels, that may he in harbor on that day, be requested to display their respective national (lags. . That each warehouse and g-oeery be closed, and that we desist from any and all mercantile and commercial opetatious, on that day. OiDtior thcDit.

The editor of the Luminary dislikes very much the mania, as he calls it, in the colored freemen and beautiful maids of the republic of Liberia to dress themselves gaily. On the subject he says: The passion for fashionable dress and display is increasing in tne colony at a most fearful pace. As soon as a vessel arrives with the faded and cast-off unmentionables of other climes, a man seizes nil hands, a general chase is opened. Faded sputters and blooming maids, mamas and little pusses, w 1 ink ed antiqnitv and undentized infancy, aunts, grandmas, and drivelling neicea, all hobble off in a breathleaa race,v? Inch is to end only when one is bonnetted, another gloved the heaving boaom of another enveloped in variegatedguaze, and tha godlike form of another shrouded and tortured in dubious ilk: Until all have possessed themselves of something to show off in and be admired tor, it ia the all-absorbing topic, and the place where the gew-gaws art offered for sale Is the general reaort. "The godlike form of another shrouded and tortured in dubious silk !" The editor is eloquent. The Herald says: It is inmored that the Brazilian Consul at Biesra Leone, who was also dabbed Jadge in the Conrt of Mixed Commission, for the adjudication of vessels engaged in the slave t ade, hss lately taken leave for his country. He had purchased the John Beys;and while goiegout of the Capes of Sierra Leone, he waa met by hia own brig going in with a modest c>rgo of five handled slaves, bhc waa captured by one of H B. M. cruisers. His worship being anxious to reach home, did not return to asaiat his brother Judges in the adjudication. The following evidence of the workings of the spirit were developed in a conversation which tlia mA itnr Uarl Ufitk Atlf* nf lUltlVHK Sum Clarke by name': But to the relation. Bam Clark, for thia ia hia name, came forward. Finding he could apeak tolerably (rood English, when he ended hia relation, we thua interrogated him?" Wh?t make yon pray?" "Becauie I fear die and gu lor bad plare." " Who tell you there be a bad place ?" " I go meeting ebery time. I hear da palaver and I blieve him " When yon been Jib for piay. how yon bean f?ei ? ' " I feel bad too much, my heart be bad. tick too much " " You feel bad ail da time yon lib for pray?' " All time 1 feel bad; 1 no feel good one time." You pray all time 1" " I p.ar all time. I pray nigbt. I pray day. 1 pray home, I uray buah." " Whit time you feel better ?" " One nieht I feel bad too much, I think I can die, I a; den I hear aomething fall down all came man cut tiee in - My heart light, 1 be new, 1 laugh. I can't cry, I aay what die ? aomething aay dis be (iod Hod dene hear you for Jeim Christ (make.)" "Do you love God ?" "I lab God too much " 'Do voa love God'a people?" "Too much 1 inb ebery body." "Suppose church aay vou no converted, you must go pray again V Bpoae he any I noo look God. I cant ble (believe) that, no more: I cnn/ro pray, because I lub prav." These answers with others which have escaped ut, banished our doubt, and with indescribable leeling we gave him oar hand as n candidate for baptism and admission into Christ milittut chare h. This is certainly cheering news from Liberia. Notwithstanding this, there are some bad niggers among them, of which the following is good proof:? At ths anniversary, missionary meeting, held in the M. E. Church in this place in January last, a collection was taken in behalf of the society, and carried to the secretary's table, since which it has not (seen heard from. We are satisSrd that wither the present secretary nor tieasurer know any thing of it. Any person giving infonn,tion of its whereabouts, will confer a very great favor upon the Liberia Conference Missionary Society, or its otfieera. ; In regard to the health of the Methodist Missionaries, we loarn from the Luminary, that Brother Williams continues much as he has been for months past. Bisters Wilkins and Bruali have both been itnite sick since our last notice, but we are thankfkl to learn, they are recovering. and able to give some attention to their Urge family. Brother Morris is improving in health. Mr. Beaham is slowly recovering from n recent severe attack of remittent fever. Mrs. B. in in tolerable health. We have not heard for some weeks irom our brethren and sisters at the diatant stations, but all were in usual health when last heard from. The following are some of the inconveniences of slave dealing, as related by the Luminary :? We have been informed, th-.t noma time since the native* uear Gallenus, about fifty miles above ns. purchased a large unmberof slaves for market, bnt not meeting with an opportunity to dispose of them, in consequence of the interference of men-of-war cruising on the const, they weie suffered to build towns of their own, and became ao numerous and strong that they assumed their independence, and became an annoyance to their former masters, and, nt the Inst aeconnts, had burned several of their towns; and were seitlng their oppressors at defiance. Slave dealing on this coast ia be soming dangerous and unprofitable, as wcdl as a very abominable business. The Office of Health Officer.?We have stated that an attempt was making by certain parties, to abolish the fees attached to the office of health officer, and make that asalaned office. The movement, it appearp, receives a great deal of opposition, and the friends of the present incumbent are eloquent on the dangers and risks he runs in exposing himself to contagion. Now, this is all "gaH;" for we know very well, that the health officer no more exposes himself than any other physician does, and not as much as many do. fie this as it may, there ' are a thousand young physicians in 1 lie State, 1 who would gladly face all this risk and danger, : for a salary of twenty-five hundred dollars 11 I year. It is very doubtful whether the fees attached to this office will ever be abolished. | They amount to twenty-five or thirty thousand 1 dollars per year; and yet we are informed, thut j the incumbent gets very little over a living from the office. How is this I dimply, because they arc considered a \ery important portion of the "spoils," which we hear so much about, and have from time immemorial beetn used by all political parties for elecj tioneering purposes Indeed, we are informed i that Dr. Doanc, who held this office a short time since, left it a poorer man than lie was when ha | entered it, all the fees having been taken from him for election purposes. If this is so, then the receipts of this office, mey be considered, as the lawyers say, one of the " hereditaments" to go into the control of the party successful, and to he used by the other party, in case of its success?to go trom one to the other, and be used by each in bribery and corruption. The locoIocoj having been defeated, are1 now very anxious to have these fees abolished, now that they cannot get them; but the whiga think their turn has come, and as it depends on the whigs whether they shall be abolished or not, we may reasonably suppose that they will not. The Mtiamkk Ckescbnt Citv will be launched this afternoon at half-past 3 o'clock, from \V. 11. Brown's yard, near the Novelty Works. Sporting Intelligence, Tsottinii Match.?A trotting matoh is advsrtlssd in our columns to come off on tb? iSth last., bstwson Kipton and Lady Suffolk, for $1000 aside, two mlln hsats, I bit announcement, will wak* op the sporting mm in tbls rioisitjr. Balls and Soiwnw.?One of the most curious characteristics of society iu New York, is the number of balls and toiriti given by the respectable and middle classes of the people, throughout the winter season. These balls are given by clubs of young men, under various designations, and probably a night does not pass that we have not tickets tor two or three of them. There is in all these balls a great deal of grace and elegance, resembling that which you will find at similar balls in Paris. In fact, the taste of New York, among the middle classes, and their style, possess a great resemblance to that which_you will find among the same classes in Paris. Generally, the young women who frequent these balls are the most beautiful of any class of society, and the young men are really accomplished in the ball room. Among others of this kind, we see that the annual Thistle ball is to be held to-night, at Castle Garden. Of course, Jim Grant, the popular barber of Ann street, will be there; for he is still in this country, shaving as hard as he can, not having taken possession of the vast estates, and mountains of heath, which he expects one of these dnys in the Highlands of Scotland, when all his race of the clan of Grant shall have drumt themselves dead, or broken their necks hunting. I The last time we were there, we looked over those estates, and with the exception of some huge granite rocks, they seemed to be excellent for grouse, and possessed some milldams and brooks on the river Spey, for angling. There are, also, on it some beautiful castles, some dilapidat ea, ana otners wnicn are used as country inns, in the shooting season. Nothing will prevent Jim Grant, of Ann street, from* getting those estates, but the obstinacy of a few of this clan, who will not die soon enough, or who will not shoot themselves, or drink enough of Highland whiskey. It is really a sight to see the Grants dance the Highland fling on the Highland hills; and we suppose Jim is bound to keep up the reputation of his race, to-night, at Castle Garden. City Intelligence. Movemeut* or the New York Officers.?Sinoe the arrival in this city of Col. Burnett. Major Dyokman, and Lleuts. Potter and Sweeny, of the New York Regiment of Volunteers, in Mexloo,every respeot which a grateful people can bestow, has been paid them. On their arrival, on Friday night last, they were reoelved by a oommittee, composed of the officers of the 2nd Regiment of New York Volunteers, and the offloers of the Independent Companies of the city. They were esoorted to Central Hall, where a snmptuous repast awaited them, and a salute was fired to sound their weloome. On Saturday they were called upon at the Astor House, in the forenoon, by the Judges of the Supreme Court, and the Mayor of the olty, when arrangements were made for the gallant officers to reeelve their friends at the Governor's room in the City Hall. In the afternoon they were called upon by the Mends of some of the brave ones who perished in the battle of Churubusco, &o. The aged father would ask for a recital of the deeds of his son, who died in the servlee of his country, and one particularly, an old man, bent down with the weight of nearly fourscore years, heard, for the first time, of the death of a favorite son, with the resignation of a patriot of '76 On Sunday, they attended the ohurch of the Rev. Mr. Balsh, in Great Jones St. On Monday, they were waited upon by the citizens, and spent the evening

at the Park Theatre, where tbey were reoelved witb unbounded applause. On Tuesday, nothing of more than ordinary interest transpired Tbey visited Broadway Theatre in the evening Yesterday was the day set apart for the brave soldiers to reoeive their fellow-citizens at the Governor's room, bat in oonsequenoe of the funeral of ex-Chancellor Kent, the reception was postponed until Friday. The evening was spent with a friend. A dinner will be given to-day to these gallant officers, by the " Light Guards," at Lafayette Hall, and a most brilliant affair may be expected. Col. Burnett uvuauio m uiviuuoi vi tuii gurpo in 1Q'40( wuea mere boy. In the evening they will visit a grand Military Ball, at Tammany Halt, given by Capt. Richard H. Thompson's Company of the 9th Regiment. Funeral ok the Late Chancellor Kent.?The remains of the lamented Chancellor Kent were yesterday removed from No 28 Union plaee, to their last resting place, and were followed by an immense proces sion, consisting of the judges of our iooal courts, and leading members of the bar, tic. About four o'clock the coflln was removed, and the remains were borne to Calvary churob. oorner of East 21st street and 4th ave. nu?, where the Rev. Mr. Southard read the funeral service before a vast congregation of sorrowing friends and admirers of the high talents of the deoeased. A very full and effeotive ohoir performed in the course of the ceremony, after whioh the remains were removed, followed by the chief mourners, dressed la white badges; his honor the Mayor, and the Corporation, their staffs muffled with orape ; the members of the bar, wearing mourning bodges ; private citizens and an immense train of carriages, in one of which we noticed Oeneral Gaines. The funeral procession^noved down Broadway as far as Bond street, and attracted a good deal of attention from crowds who had (looked on the side-walks as it passed along. On reaehtng Bond street it paased on through Bowery to the marble oeme tery, Second avenue, where the rem. ins were deposited in the family vault, the Rev. Mr. Southard again reading the servioee No funeral oration waa pronounced, that part of the oeremony being omitted, in consequence of the appointment of a oomi mitten at the late meeting of the bar, who ara to select i an orator to prononnee an oration on the life, character, I Sic. ho. of the deceased, whioh will be dnly advertised After the remains were deposited in tne family vault, the immense orowds who bad collected dispersed, and all reeined deeply impressed with the solemnity of the servioee The Weather.?The leading toplo of conversation in all qnazters. at present. Is " the weather." Never, at this season of the year, at least, within " the memory of the oldest inhabitant,'' has the thermometer ranged eo high. It stood yesterday at 72 degrees, in some parts of the city; and the sun shone out in all its brtlUa< oy during the day. The beat waa oppressive about three o'olock. The weather, for the last few days, would remind one of the middle of spring. Lost Children.?The carelessness of parents, in allowing their children to wander and stray through 1 the publlo streets, has frequently oalled forth just re| buke, both from the press and the authorities. The aggregate numborjof ohlldren that have been found straying upon the public streets, for tbe last sis months. i ana wno ware lagen to tna several polloe district etatlou I bouses. and wore subsequently restored to their parenta, i we find, by an official return, to amount to 1810 children.

Fit th District Tolick Station, ) New York, Deo 14, 1847 ? Ma. Editor?An article appeared in the Heiald of this morning reflecting severely upon the Tollce Department ! and alluding to two ' high-handed outrages" perpetrated uprn respeotable females within tbe district under my supervision In regard to the one some aiz weeks since, at or neer St. John's Fark, which haa been tbe csuae tl much newspaper comment.

The performances st the Park last evsnlng, were for the benefit of Mr. Blake, the treasurer The bill was a good one; the two Mleeee Heron tppeared in the popular drama of the " Spoiled Child," and the eldest of the sisters also appeared as Dr O'Toole, In the faros of the " Irish Tutor." In addition to these pieces, the petit oemedy of the " Lost Letter," and the drama of the "Cricket on the Hearth," were given. Mr. Arthureon was snuouDoed for two pleoss of vocal music, but on aocount of Indisposition, was unable to appear. To-night the comlo drama of the " Kour Mowbray's" I will be performed, in which Miss Heron will appear in four different oharaoters. The extravaganza of the " Happy Man," will also be given. Miss Heron performing the part of " Paddy Murphy." in which she will sing "The Bould Soldier Boy," "1 came from the land of Tats and Potatoes," and " The Birth of 8t Patrick." During the evening the elsters will sing a duett, ' 1 kuow a Bank." In addition to all of whioh the vaudeville of " The Loan of a Lover," and the petit comedy of "Shocking Kveuts," will be performed. Bowsar Thiatii.-The Bowery theatre, last evening, eontained as many people as we ever saw congregated in that capacious establishment. Although the entertainments were both varied and interesting, although there was dancing, ballet, oomedy, and drama, yet the performances of the celebrated horse Tammany, under the dlrrction of the celebrated equestrian, Levi North, were the great feature of the evening, and. as usual, threw the epeotatore into immoderate fits of laughter It would be certainly a difficult matter, if persons were so disposed, to repress their risibility at tbe supremely comlo and Irresistibly rleb spectacle which Tsmmsnv exhibits. We oan truly say that we have seen two-footed animals make a worse .n.mnt it the Polka then Tamany does Ths pat it deux by Miss Turnbull and Mr. G. N. Smith, was brantifully performed, and had to be repeated The bill performed lust evening will be repeated this evening. It comprises the bigtly effective drama of " Valsna," the horse Tamm toy's performances, the ballet of ' Nathalie." with Miss Turnbull, and the come Jy of a " Kiss in the Dark." Palmo's Opera House.?This plaoe of amusement was opened last night, for the first time, under the management of Madame Auguata, and, by reasons unknown to us, was poorly attended. We thought before, that with such an attraction as Madame Augusta herself, besides the German vaudeville, the admirers and friends of this talented dameute would invade the theatre of Chambers street. It was not so, and, nevertheless, th;s priestess of Terpslohore.displayed her best knowledge of the great art she possesses to a most wonderful extent. We confess at once, we don't speak IJutch, and thus, having not understood the two vaudevilles played by the German actors, we have oertainly missed tne fun exhibited by M. W.LlIermann, In the parts of Sohnapps,the barber, and Cork Sorew, the innkeeper. The only thing ot wblob we shall complain, Is the orohestra, whloh was, indeed, so bad| that we cannot oonoeive how Madame Augusta was able to danoe in time Madame Augusta's personation of the Sylphlde, was truly excellent Her jtttetbat'ui, her rondi de jambet, were executed with fini, a style which Is, indeed, the best spec! men of the art of danoing. In the " Pages of the Duke of Bassomptere," the impretaria of Palmo's theatre had not much to display her talent as a dameutt, but she performed in a very good manner, and showed to her admirers, that her form Is still equal to that of the oel ebrated Venus de Medicls. The performance of this evening will be the same as last night. We hope the house will be better filled. Chatham Theatric.?'The entertainments this eve< nlng will commence with the interesting drama of the " Black Mantle, or Wenlock of Wenlock," in which Mrs. MoLean, Mr. Hield.and Mr. Brandon, take the leading character*. Next In succession will be the exhibition of the u Tableaux Vivants," illustrative of several magnificent plotures, namely: the " Maypole'Danoe," "Invocation to Love," " May and Morning Star," the" Graoes," th? " Liirht of the Harem." the " Lute PI aver." See Sco. The amusements will close with the drama of the " Roll of the Drum," a story of the French war. Those who have not, as yet, seen the Model Artists of this theatre, had better embraoe the present opportunity, as they are really excellent, and must be withdrawn to glee plaee to other novelties. The bill for to-night is a good one, and ought to draw a good house. A new tableau will be exhibited, representing the heroes of Mexioo, whloh, being a national affair, must prove attractive. Circus?Bowf.rt Amphitheatre ?Sands, Lent & Co. are all the go here May Fly, who is justly styled the paragon of horses, nightly goes through his wonderful performances in the way of Janoing. The doollity and intelligence displayed by this animal is really surprising, and the beholder is at a loss which to admire most, the intelligence of the animal or the untiring exertion and skill which must have been expended in order to bring out the all but human instinct which it displays; be hat as it may, however, there is no doubt that May Fly Is fully entitled to all the encomiums he' reoeires |That delightful troupe of ponies, too, how admirably they go through their trioks under the direotion of Mr. Sands, their trainer ! There is a story mentioned in Roman history, of an emperor who was so fond of bis horse, that be gave him the rank of oonsul. Had that emperor had Sands A Go's troupe of horses in his possession, he would doubtless have made a whole regiment of consuls of them. To-night, Master Walter Aymar, the dashing young equestrian, will appear, as also Mr. K Sands and his two sons ; likewise the whole of the equestrians, elowna,&e., attached to the company. They will doubtless attraet a full house. Chriity's Minstrels.?Tha blaok diamonds wbe com pone this band, sparkle and shine every evening,with as muoh brilliancy as a Drunuuond light. The burlesque lecture on phrenology, is a good take oif on the profound leoturers on the various occult soenes?the caobuohaand poika, as danced by Vaughanand Christy, are elaborate burlesques; indeed, so elaborate, that they are almost m good as the original danoes, as performed by many orlitta.

They give another in Brooklyn, on Saturday evening. Musical Illustrations or Shareware.- This evening,at the Society Library, Mr Lynne and the vocalists associated with him will give the second of tbo series of these illustrations The subject will be the tragedy of "Macbeth," and all tbe)splendldlmnsio written by Locke, for tha Incantation and annernatural soanaa of thin splendid tragedy will be given with great effect. Mr. Lynfli will inake some remark* on the play itself, the analogy between the witches of Sbakspeare and the furies of the ancient*. He will also give an analytical dissertation on the character of Lady Macbeth, and general observations on tne whole play. The solo parts of the musio will be performed by Mr K Loder, Mrs McKarren, Mrs. L. A. Jones, Messrs 3. A. Johnson, Greatorex and 3 L.

Broadway Odhow'This is a very pleasant place to pass a fe% hoars agreeable at.

I The twenty first MDirtTMry of the above Soelety , I end the twenty-fifth of the Female Branch of th? same. wars celebrated yesterday evening, at the Tabernacle,in I Broadway. At seven o'clock tha chair was taken br I the Uev. Dr. Dewitt, president of the Scoiety, tha I large spare of this Immense building being filled with aa I Immense company of bli.Uly respectable persons, among I whom the ladies brightly predominated. The platform I behind the chair was 11.led with a great numbaf of the I clergy of the oity; behiud whom a ohoir cf musicians I were seated, prepared to oelebrate the evening with I sacred muslo. After the performance of solemn prayer I by one of the clergy present, the various annual reports I of the Society were then read, giving a pleasiDg account I of the condition, prospeots and objeots of the Society. I it appear* from the several reports made to tha Board I that the tracts distributed during the year have bean 1.U01 833, containing 4,121,707 pegee of truth important to the salvation of the soul 1887 Bibles and 790 Testa- I meats have been supplied to the destitute; 4011 volumes I have been lent: 2301 children gathered into Sabbath I and 300 into Publto Schools; 141 persons induced to I unite with Bible glasses, and 2090 to attend Church. I 349 Temperance pledges have been obtain il, 1380 Dis- I trict Prayer meetings held; 33 backsliders r si med, 17 8 I persons hopefully converted, and 117 co> -n united I with Evangelical churches But these statialios give I only an imperfeot view of what has been d>>ue. Tha I miselonaries are at their various stations, like minute I men, ever reedy to engage in serving others, and many I of the visiters are prompt In their co-operation. In tha I supply of Blblee and Testaments they act as agents of I the New York Bible Society, and in cases of temporal I distress they are often enabled to provide immediate re lief, through the,' relation they hold to .the Association tor the Improvement of the condition of the poor; or in I cases not contemplated by that Association, they are often I allowed to be the almoners ot benevolent individuals. It lurther appears from the reports, tbat the City iraot I Soeiety is auxiliary to the American Tract Sooiety, in- I asmuch aa it supplies this city with tracts, and leaves the Parent Society to devote attention to its work away from homo; but the management and lunds of the two societies are altogether dTstinot and Independent of each other. In the year 1846, the increase of our populallon having rendered the meteure Imperatively neoeseery, the City Tract Sooiety engtged three additional missionaries, and a further addition hn been made the present year. From the extension of the operations of the society, it appears, that they are in debt, the present year, to a greater amount than at the close of any preceding year. A strong appeal was, therefore, made for contribution of funds to extricate the society from its difficulties, and to carry on its great and harmonious work. The severe 1 reports having been gone through, the choir execu'ed a piece of sacred muslo in a style which did honor to t is noble art and its progress among us, and reflected credit of the highest kind upon the skilful cempany of performers. liev. laa U Stkwahd then addressed the meeting, in a speech which oommanded attention and riveted the minds of all, by the variety and number of interesting anecdotes pertinent to the oooasion, ably related by the speaker. Mr. Steward ooncluded by offering the following resolution:? Keeolved, That the reports now read be adopted, and printed under the direotlon of the board, wnloh was adopted unanimously. Tne oholr then performed another beautiful piece of sacred muslo. in the best style of execution, after which, Hibam Kktcham, Esq, addressed the meeting, In a speech of much interest and great eloc|i_ nee Mr. Ketobam expatiated in a strain of the uiost animated and Impressive rhetorio, upon the almost exclusively conservative character of Christianity, whtoh he hesitated not to plaoe in this point of view, above every other means or plan of guiding and preserving sooiety. After some further remarks, In support of the objects and views of the sooiety, Mr. K. having " concluded his address, the annual eolleotion wa? taken up; and we are happy to say, was suoh as to manifest both the liberal disposition of our oommunity, and the high estimation in whioh the sooiety and its object is held. The whole assembly then joined with the ohelr In singing a hymn, prepared and printed for the oooasion, whloh was sung by the congregation atandlng, and produced a grand and imposing effeot. The Rev. H W. Beecher, of Brooklyn, then addressed the meeting in a strain of fervid eloquenoe; whereupon, the doxology being sung, and a benedlotion given in ths most Impressive and affecting manner, by the President, the assembly dispersed.
