I The publication of the Herald commenced yesterday at A tniaatee just 3 o'clock, and finished at y o'clock. Inlrri stlnjj Mcwe front Mexico. In another part of this day's paper will be found j ' some very interesting intelligence from the city of ' Mexico, which came to hand yesterday. It 1 relates to the closing 9cene9 of the war, the ' speeches of the American and Mexican com- 1 mtssioners, the ratification of the treaty, the ex- ' changing of the documents by the commissioners 1 of the respective countries, and other interesting matters. 1 The Mexican war has, therefore, been finished at 1 last. The incidents, the battles, the defeats, and all connected with it, belong to the past, and will go down to posterity as part of the history of the ( 1 times in which we, in the year 1S48, live. ; ' Notwithstanding the opposition of the opponents of this war, it has been one of the most glorious ' conflicts in which any country ever engaged. It 1 has cost us, to be sure, nearly one hundred and fifty ' millions of dollars, on the debit side of the book: j but on the other we have a credit, in national glory 1 and renown, which far exceeds that. It has proven ' to the world the military power of the United ! States; and shown all nations, that in war, as well as ' in every thing else, this is, emphatically, a great i 1 country?that our resources, in a military point of 1 view, are equal, if not superior, to those of any \ { country on the face ot the earth. It may have saved j 1 us an expense of three hundred millions of dollars, without uny corresponding benefit; for it i 1 might have cost us as much as that, if not more, 1 in a war with any of the great European na- ' tions, to reach the position which we now 1 occupy, and to demonstrate the facts which we ' have demonstrated in the war with Mexico, to the 1 satisfaction even of our most bitter ill-wishers. | 1 Such a demonstration we might, perhaps, have been j 1 obliged to make in a war with some European | : country, if the war with Mexico had not broken > out. But while we acknowledge, in despite of all the opposition which has been waged against our j country, the great and glorious results which have 1 followed from the war with Mexico, wc do not j think that the head of the Executive department of 1 the government can reasonably lav claim to any portion of them. When Mr. Polk despatched Gen. : Taylor to the frontier, he did not know what to do. , He groped in the dark, and never had any settled plan which he intended to pursue, or aweast, if he ; had any such, he never disclosed it to his cabinet, but kept it to himself, and from his cabinet. And yet the cabinet was composed of a set of very able men?with the exception of Cave Johnson, the Postmaster General, who is decidedly and admittedly j one ot the greatest imbeciles that ever disgraced any government. Mr. Buchanan, the Secretary ! of State, conducted h;s part in the Mexican j war with great talent nnd propriety. Mr. Walker, the Secretary of the Treasury, managed the finances of the country with great skill?albeit he did make a mistake, or a blunder, of seven millions of dollars, which lie has never yet ex- : plained ; a blunder which, by the way, we do not see how any man, at all conversant with the j finances or business of his department, could commit. Mr. Marcy, the Secretary of War, has displayed a great deal of skill since the commence- 1 ment of hostilities, especially in his correspon- j dence. In his military plans and projects he, of ; course, blundered occasionally; but in his corres- I pondence with General Scott, he achieved a great ' I triumph. With old Rough and Ready, however, he was not quite so fortunate. In his encounter I with the hero ofBuena Vista, he sustained a terri- j ble defeat. Mr. Marcy is, undoubtedly, an able man; but he is as slippery and treacherous as he j is able. Mr. Buchanan is also able in his depart- i ment, und as honest as he is able; while Mr. ! Walker, in view of high ;>olitical principle, stands between Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Marcy. But as for Cave Johnson, he has always been a disgrace ; -I? - I ?' ?- I- ' ' - ' ' iu mt* auinniisiraiiuii ; nui wr do hoc Know mal li** u> not a (it associate for tiie imbecile Mr. Polk, who appointed him. Let tliem all have their proper meed of honor, j The members of the administration have ull done ] to the best of their ability ; and Mr. Polk will go I out of office with, at least, some show of respect; and much more than that which shed laughter and ; contempt on John Tyler, four yenrs ago. ixtelliotnce from Veneziela.?A letter from u highly intelligent American merchant of Maracaibo, Venezuela, dated May 22d, contains the following interesting information Thin day May tin- inhabitants of Maracnibo are embarking all their troop* on hoard of their lleet. and other vessel* on the lake They intend to Rive up the eity of Maraaalbo without any fighting?to blockade the eity. and shut Mouagu- up in it The fleet is to keep possession of the lake, and fort Sao < arias' Is to be kept by the Maracaile-ro* in opposition to Mona. ga* The intention is to starve hliu out or Maracaibo. or force him into a capitulation 'ieneral I'aes is in * Boeono.' and will not probably advance on Maracaibo ' until lie has an efficient force If Monaga< fails into | the snare laid out for him. he will prove a greater hoho 1 tliau what he is even supposed to be ; at all events he 1 is in a critical situation, and the moment when he sup| poses himself mo^t successful may prove the most die- i I astroue to him It will not be the liret tirne that the I Maracaiberos' have used up. in a similar manner. | ' considerable forces sent against them." J The above will probably explain the npparcntly I | strange conduct of the fleet opj>OKed to Munagas. ji voRKKcnov?in printing th>- communication from the Muyor to the Board of Assistant AlderI men, on the subject of the bodies exposed at the j dead house at the foot of lifitli street, a typographical error occurred; which, though trilling in ( itself, has drnwn from Mr. Leila n sjiecial notice. ( 4 The n ntenee in which th< error occurred, read as j follows:?"Among the corpse* thus cxjicscd, I were some of ' prisoners,' who had died of the ' I small pox," Arc. The word ' prisoners' wan w rit- ' ten 1 persons inth< original MM., and should have ' l.f n ?o printed W< II nol hate i.-it called ffj on to an erroi so unimportant, bat for the , H I ,, t III 11 / !'

The douM? process of the decomposition of the >ld, and the reorganization of the new parties, is joing on with great activity throughout the county. Sin rnl.irl cnoivrh, Mr. Polk is the author of his efh'iv.'-i ne.' m:i in ;st the political elements, ile ruslied with hot haste into the Mexican war, mncipally with a view of making his adniinistraion :>opular, by giving force and consistency to his treasures, and securing success to his dynasty. The \ar which carried Taylor into Mexico, and the I riumphs achieved by him, have given a new turn to he political movements of the whole country. "We ave finished a most successful war with Mexico, nd covered our heroes with glory, and annexed a prritory, equal to one-third of Kurope, to the reublic; and yet Mr. Polk and his dynasty are in a vorse position than they were before they comnenced waging war with Mexico. The first successful general in the cann>aigu on he Kio Grande has created a name, and evoked a i ovAlntinn .u_ ?1:?: ? i ? 1 1 I . ?me t>uiiuctu parues, wnicn win >e completed in November next. The nomination of Gen. Taylor by the Philalelphia convention has demolished the strength md consistency of the whig party, which had jeen for twenty years the embodiment of Mr. Clay's political doctrines. The election of the ,ame distinguished gentleman, next November, will perform a like capital process upon the democratic party?the modern democracy, which received its form from the hands of Mr. Van Buren under the big mantle of Gen. Jackson's name and popularity. Thus the two popular organizations, the one con- j sisting of that formed by Mr. Clay, and denominated the whig party ; the other formed by Mr. Van Buren, and called the democratic party, j receive their final doom by the very men and measures which come out of the Mexican war?a war bogan and carried on for the purpose of giving strength and consistency to the dynasty of Van Buren itself at Washington. While these are the general views which will nccur to independent minds in glancing over the ifTuirs of the country, it is yet amusing to see the defeated factions of these old organizations strug- j jling in the terrible current of the times, and enleavoring, in the eddies of public opinion taking dace here and there, to construct a new party out if what they think were materials belonging to hem exclusively. Mr. Selden and a few of the ultra whigs nomilated Mr. Clay at a recent meeting in the Park; ind the organ of the reduced party, the 'lYibunc, waits to see if there will be an uprising of the wlliir clpmenfs nn onm? ? <1? , giuuuu, IW IUC X IlilllUl'lihia nominations, in order to seize hold of them, and carry them into action at the next election. Mr. Van Buren and his friends, are equally busy, )n the other side of the fence, at Utica, organizing heir sectional party under the name of the barnjurners, and deliberating on the propriety of lominating another candidate for the Presidency, n order to affect or weaken the one nominated at Baltimore, to whom they were particularly hostile. It is threatened, also, that a convention of the ree States at the North will be held in a few nonths, either at Pittsburgh or Buffalo, for the mrpose of concentrating and consolidating the | contrary elements that formerly rallied under the aame of Clay whigs and Van Buren democrats. The grounds of this union are marked out already. It is denominated the free soil territory, the Wilmot proviso party?that is to say, the single idea of preventing slavery to exist in newly acquired territories, is to form the great rasis for making up this new great party, and by uniting the friends of Van Buren and Clay, the national reformers, and the old friends of Birney and the advocates of abolitionism proper. If they cannot agree to unite, they are all to work on their own account; and they may make considerable effort and create a great deal of noise for a few weeks to come; but before the conflict between the two great candidates, Cass and Taylor, takes place, we are much disposed to think the combination of the disaffected portions of the parties will diminish in strength and enthusiasm, as the political war between the two great parties grows the warmer The movements of the convention at Utica, with its affiliation in the free States, is merely the resistance of disappointed men, seizing a single plank, a stick of black wood called "Wilniot proviso," on which to float themselves on some stray shore during the great flood of revolution which the nomination of Gen. Taylor has produced over the political elements. We are now in the midst of a revolution, in the centre of that great current which is changing men, principles and measures ; and all the efforts of those poor cast-offs, Clay, Van Buren and Birney?as well as those^wlio attached themselves to their skirts?will not be able to check the movement that was made when the name of Gen. Taylor reverberated from the Rio Grande to the Aristook, and from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Whether Mr. Van Buren be nominated or not, at Utica, is a matter of little consequence ; his friends may bluster for a few weeks, but before the contest is over, they will settle down to Cass and Taylor, and go for new principles on a new platform. EriSTOLARV Bkevitv.?The ancients, especially the Greecians and Romans, prided themselves on the brevity of their epistolary correspondence. Julius Caesar, after his invasion of Gaul, sent back the celebrated despatch, veni, vidi, viri > but we apprehend that] neither kthe Grecians nor the Romans of ancient times excelled the Americans of the present duy in brevity of correspondence. As proof wc submit the following letters, which are as important as the letters which either the Greeks or Romans wrote :? Dk i roit. May 17th. Dkar Sir?

I.ncantadv Now if brevity, which, it is said, is the soul of wit, is in epistolary correspondence, to he made u test iii the present canvass, General Taylor decidedly has the best clianee. Mr. Hancroft' letter to Commodore Connor, is certainly as brief hh it could well be, but in proportion to the magnitude of the subject treated of, General Taylor is without rival, and therefore takes the palin. The last episile is not only short?in the true vidi, vtni, tin', style?but it is comprehensive, and covers the whole ground, while Julius Ca'sar's epistle did not. Indeed, it is a Rough and Ready letter all over?hack, belly, and ribs, nnd is perfectly committal, as the politicians say. The fact is, that no matter how the pack is sluiflled, old Zack turns up trump, and invariably has the best hand. Na.hsac, New I'ijovidknck, pa|?ers, of a late date, for which we are indebted to Capt. Muggins, of the schooner Commerce, give very favorable accounts of the fruit crop through the Bahama Islands. The planters were greatly encouraged, having had opious showers of rain. .Some twelve American vessels were at the Islands, loading pines, bananas, j jranges, Arc., for the United States. I Very UU Mi ?M Fulte Th? correspondent of the New Orieana Pica unt, writing from Queretaro~on the"*30th alt , says:? The first day out from Mexico, we met Lieut. IViso. of the navy. with despatches from Com. Jones, in the r&ciflc. to the Commisnioners. As far as I can learn the people of Lower California, who have been friendly to the Amerioan*. are threatened with vengeance, and they have requested Com. Jones to urge upon the Commissioners the propriety of inserting a clause iu the treaty for their protection: and the Commodore has written for instructions in the matter. Mr. Wise having returned from Mexioo. is now wailing here by instruction of the Commissioners, to carry a copy of tho treaty to the Pacific, aud will have to-morrow. Mis travelling has been extremely rapid. He left Mitr.utlan en the loth Inst., and arrived, by sea, at San illas, ou the 13th. At midnight, on the 13th. he left for Mexico, by way of this city. He arrived hero on the morniug of the 20th. and met us on the 22d. within about twenty miles of Mexico. If you will look over the map. you will say this is a feat for a man to boast of. Mr Wise has kindly furnished me with the following memoranda of naval intelligence: The Ohio, Corn Jones, arrived at Masatlan on the 9th of May. 42 days from Callao. Frigate Congress and corvette Cyaue were in port. On the 12th the rasee Independence. Com. Shubrick. arrived at Sau Bias. Store ships Lexington and Southampton were also there?the latter to sail for Monterey?having on board Lieut. Hailcck. U. S. Engineers. The squadron was perfectly healthy. Masatlan wus garrisoned by the crew of the Congress and the marines of the Independence. It was supposed the former would return to the United States with Com. Shubrick. it was not decided which vessel of the squadron would carry Com Gelsenger to Chi nil The corvette Dale was at Uuyamas and the Preble at Monterey. Office Holders and Office Seekers.? This industrious class of the community?a sort of clitvaliert de tnrfuifrie?take a great interest in presiJ si_1 1 ? " ucuuai elections; ior, on me result 01 such contests depends their bread and butter, as well as their segars. In the present election, between Genernl Taylor and General Cass, these chevaliers are placed in | somewhat of u quandary. The prospects are that General Taylor will have the best chances of election ; but the sturdy old fellow will not make any pledges to remove from office, or appoint to the same mere politicians. On the other hand, General Cass, whose chances are not so bright, is entirely pledged to keep in the present lot of office holders, and he may therefore expect their support through, out the canvass. Probably he would receive the support of those in office if his chances were bb good as those of General Taylor; but there is an irresistible disposition in office holders and seekers, like the sun-flower, to turn their faces towards the luminary in the ascendant. ' With this prospect in view, we think it i9 probable that there will be less electioneering among office seekers and office holders in the present election than usual; and the contest will be decided by the uprising of the independent, the intelligent, the hone3t, and unpurchased American people, from their own volition and from their own sense of right and wrong. This is a happy prospect. Telegraphic Despatch.?We believe the quickest despatch by telegraph, distance and all considered, was that received and published by us, announcing the fir.-t news of peace with Mexico. The steamer Edith arrived at New Orleans on Tuesday, the 30th of May, with accounts of the ratification of the treaty by Mexico. We received the same in New York on Friday, t! e 2d of June, and sent it on the same day to Boston. Thus, the news passed from New Orleans to Boston in about three days and a few hours. By the 1st to the 15th of July, it is expected the line will be open all the way to New Orleans, by which a circuit from that city to Quebec, in Canada, a distance of over 3000 miles, will be formed, j and which will be equal to the distance across the Atlantic, from the United States to England. We I understand that as soon as the line is through to New Orleans, it is proposed to connect the lines between Quebec and New Orleans, and by that means messages can be sent the whole distance between the two points within a few minutes. 11 this be successful?and there is no room for doubt ?it would prove, theoretically, at least, that if a line were laid across the bottom ol the sea, from this city to England, communication might be obtained between the two places, within the same space of time as it takes the fluid to pass between New York and Jersey City. Such an undertaking would, at first sight, look chimerical; but the magnetic telegraph at the pre. sent day, is as much imperfect, and as much in its lntancy, as the principle ot propelling vessels by steam.was in the days of Robert Fulton. The principle only has been discovered; and we have no doubt, that the mode of applying it will be as much unproved upon hereafter, us the principle which Fulton discovered hasjieen improved upon since his time. Great as have been the inventions of the present uye, they will be cast in the shade by others that will succeed them. What we have discovered, will, in the manner of practically applying them, be as much improved upon, as the manner of applying steam as an agent of propulsion, has, from time to time, been improved upon. Next to Fulj ton's discovery, the magnetic telegraph deserves tc ! rank as the first discovery of the present era. West Indies.?Ilayti and San Domingo, and the whole of the West India islands being in a very unsettled condition, we have employed a special correspondent in San Domingo to detail to us a coirect account of the changes and revolutions that are taking place there. The letter of our correspondent published a day or two since, contain| cd the only correct account of matters that have tianspired there, although verbal reports of a dif' fercnt character have been published. Hearsay intelligence, like hearsay reports, must not be taken for fact. We shall be extremely careful oi what we publish concerning West India affairs: but our correspondence may be relied upon foi accuracy and truthfulness. Major Jack Downing again in the Field.?We give in another column, a letter from Major J i cli Downing. Major Jack 9eenis to be rather fuvora hie to General Taylor, but he ha? lost much of the wit which he had in former days, whilst he writes n great deal of twaddle. We recommend Mnjoi Jack Downing hereafter to retire to the shades ol private life. He may be able to entertain there a -mull party, if he has enough of the " black strap" to elevate his ide s. lie is getting dall and prosy in his old age. lie ought to die and allow us tc write his epitaph.

Ucncrnl Tnylor Hen ring of Ills Nomination. [From the New Orleans Delta. Jun< 16 ] By h huppy and extraordinary coincidence, the j news of (fen. Taylor's nomination was brought down the river from Memphis by the steamboat ; (Jen. Taylor, Capt. Moreheud, (which, by the by, the reader will remember, was tiie name of the president of the convention.) As the boat up; proached the General's plantation, near Rodney, she rounded to, and the passengers commenced i hallooing very loudly for the old hero. Alter 1 a while, the General emerged from a log cabin, and came down to the landing, win re he was met by Captain Morehead, who handed him the letter ; announcing his nomination, lie read it without tlm slightest appearance of emotion,?after which, he quietly folded it up, not it inio the capacious pocket of that famous old brown coat, and turning to the captain, remarked?'"It's a very tine day, captain?a very fine day, indeed." " Yer, 1 very fine," responded the captain. "Itid you have a pleasant trip down ?" "Quite so," was the enp, tain's response, "Good morning, captain, good morning, gentlemen." And the imperturbable old gentleman waddled off, bowing as he went, to lire passengers and crew, who made the welkin ring with their loud hurras for O'd Znck. Political Intelligence. Tayi.ok Movements rv Massachusetts.?A Taylor Hnd Fillmore ratification meeting was held at Mewburyport, Mass., last evening. The Hon. John Wentworlh, it is stated, is running in Illinois for Congress, as ,.n Anti-C afn candidate. The district gives about 1000 democratic majority. 9 I TILEQRAPBIC tHTELUOHtC*, i gnmnury. i The Barnburners' Convention was organized at Utica yesterday. Col. Samuel Young was chosen President. A letter from ex-President Van Buren was read, lie endorses all the doctrines promulgated by young John, on the Wilmot proviso, Arc. They will probably make a nomination lor the Presidency to-day. A stirring and lively debate transpired in the Senate yesterday, on the Oregon bill. Mr. Foote was I very solicitous of obtaining some knowledge of i the principles of General Taylor?which none ! seemed prepared to give?and declared that Con- j i gress must not adjourn until the whigs show their j j hands on the Wilmot proviso. The proceedings in Congress were, altogether, j very interesting. They will be found in our de- i I spatches below. The Barnburners' Convention at Ctlca. Utica, June 22, 1&48. The excitement increases. A tremendous effort j will be made to nominate Martin Van Buren; still, \ a portion of the delegates are opposed to it, on the ( giuiuiu IIIUI 11 Will OJHUL L I UK t JUI1I1 s gun. i nose who oppose the nomination of the elder Van Buren say also that the hunkers will charge it to the account of young John. I am, however, still persuaded that Marttn Van Buren will be the candidate of the barnburners for the Presideacy. Addison Gardiner, of Rochester, Col. Young, and others, will get some votes for the Presidential nomination. Senator Dix has written some strong confidential letters to an ex-member of Congress, now in this city. Gen. 1). says that the Oregon bill is coming up in the Senate; and that he will then convince his friends that he is in favor of the Wilmot proviso. But he is too late. He cannot be nominated. It is thought that the Convention will adjourn tine die to-morrow afternoon?after which a tremendous mass meeting will be held. I proceed to give you an abstract of the proceedings of the Convention for the FIRST DAY. The Convention was organized at 12 o'clock, noon, by the appointment uf Thomas Farrington, of Tioga, as temporary Chairman, and the selection of Gilbert Dean, of Dutchess, and B. W. Scrughan, of Westchester, as Secretaries. The names of the delegates were then called. There was much applause when the name of John Vun Buren was called and responded to. Among the delegates who responded to their names were the Hon. Preston King, and the Hon. Samuel Young. Delegates trom Ohio, Wisconsin, Connecticut and Massachusetts were permitted to take seats : and participate in the business of the Coiivention. On nmtion, the Chairman appointed a cmnmittee comprising two delegates from each judicial district, to report officers for the permanent organization of the Convention. On motion, a committee consisting of a delegate from each judicial district, was appointed to prepare an address and dralt resolutions expressive of the sense of the Convention. On motion, the Convention then adjourned till 1 o'clock, P. M. AFTERNOON SESSION. The Convention assembled at 4 P. M., as per adjournment, when the Committee on Permanent Organization, reported, for President of the Convention, the Hon. Samuel Young, ot Saratoga; which was received with tremendous enthusiasm and applause. Elgin Vice Presidents were also chosen. The President then proceeded to deliver a speech glowing with great warmth and ardor. He ...*J .L?* 1 .......J . .1* I II X ? I.?.. I Diliii null fit* wu? |uuuu ?>i iiciii^ umi(.ii uuaiuburner, and hoped tlmt none ot his party would ever be ashamed to bear the name, lie said that tknndcr and Lightning were oftentimes barnburners. llis speech throughout was hailed with immense cheering and deafening plaudits. Speeches were then delivered by Messrs. Smith, Grosvenor, King, Van Buren and Butler, in a most masterly manner, and elicited frequent bursts ot applause. Mr. Butler then proceeded to read a letter addressed to the lion. Martin Van Buren, and also his reply. The substance of Mr. Van Buren's letter is to the following effect. He announces llis determination, previously expressed in IS41, to retire from political life, to be unchanged. He declines a nomination. He reviews the procedings of the Baltimore Convention. He declares that all the Barnburners did was perfectly right. He exhorts them j to persevere, and to malic a separate nomination. i His language is emphatic, and filled with emotion I ?yet strong and dignified. He reconi nends firmness. His letter throughout is decided and eniI phatic, and in favor of free territory principles. He | quotes eleven aets of Congress in support ot his argument, embracing the administrations ot Wusli. mgton, Jeflerson, Monroe, the elder Adams, Madison. Jackson, and his own. He declares that he could not vote for Cum. Cass or Gen. Taylor?that the extension of slavery is a moral curse. The letter was received with remarkable enthul siasm. | The Convention then adjourned till to-morrow 1 : morning, at 8 o'clock. ' { Arrival of I.lenti CinrcUiicr, Itrarrr of Ucit, | ]iatcUcM from Mexico. Washington, June 22, 1848. Lieut.

He came overfrorn Vera Cruz to New ; Orleans on board tne steamer Portland. It is understood that Commissioner Sevier reaclii ed the city of Mexico on the 3d inst., en route for , I home, with the ratified treaty. Gen. Robert Moms has been confirmed as U. S.

Tho Senate convened at the usual hour, when the Vice President called it to order The session opened with prayer. A number of ipemorials and petitions were preseuted. which weru duly received and referred. A resolution was introduced iu favor of the Senate's meeting iu future at 11 o'clock. A. M., instead of at 12. as hereiofore. which wiis auopted. derate on the adjournment. The joint resolution (rum the House, in favor of the adjournment of Congress on the 17th of July, was, ou motion, taken up.

J Couj.vkr, Doniphan?This brave soldier, the ! modern Xenophon, paid us a visit yesterday, and J it afforded us much pleasure to converse with one whoso signally distinguished himself during the ] late war, by hts deeds of daring, and brilliant 1 achievements,under the most trying circumstances. 1 Separated from the main body of the army?quar tered in Upper California?(his brave officer, with less than a thousand meri, fought their wuy 1 through New Mexico, a distance of more than ' three thousand miles, inhubited only by enemies, 1 and those principally consisting of savages? j inarching, too, through fields of snow, and over snow-capped mountains; and when their further progress was contested by a force, some thousands strong, with food and ammunition at their command, thevalor ol the Western hero shone forth; and, on being commanded by the bearer of a macs 11 i?t, to appear ueiore ine "generalissimo" of the enemy's force, with an in timation that unless the order was comitlied with, the enemy would charge and take him. and then neither ask nor give quarters; the gullant Colonel, "Rough and Ready" like, replied, i bv tilling the messenger that they might "charge, < and be d?d." The glorious victories won Ly Hie , Missouri volunteers, at El Paso, Sacremento, tec., are too fresh in the minds oi ourreaders, however, to require further allusions to them. Suffice to say, that Col. Doniphan, and his brave soldiers, have returned to the peaceful abodes of their friends and grateful countrymen, and trust that they may long enjoy the laurels which they have woft in the conflict that has past. Col. Doniphan, in person, is about six feet four inches high, of iron frame, and prominent features, free from ostentation, at the same time alfable and gentlemanly in his manners. With regard to his literary attainments, we would refer to a report of his address delivered before the Cadets of the United States Military Academy, at West Point, at the 1 late annual examination, and published in the i/eruld, on Saturday last.

The department is under the super- 1 iutendcnce of Miss Jui^tli K. Poixottc, assisted l>y 1 Misses tir.llin, Muhauey. Wens worth and Lyon, two t of whom were educated in the school. The time appointed for tbo examination to commence arrived, hut in consequence of the trustees of the school not appearing by that hour, it did not commence until a 1 tiaif hour after; but the time was well occupied in list- ening to several beautiful pieces of music.with tlio piano aceouipanimeul by Miss White, a girl ol' about fourteen ( years, who performed in fine style and with the greatest accuracy. The appearance of the scholars was very interesting, and a beam of intelligence} shone from , every eye. The trustees having arrived, the exercises were opened by an address to them, composed and spoken by Miss Mary A. Deegan, one of the pupils. Here it is, and it certainly bespeaks a cast ' of mind rarely found in one so young :? ucsti.f.mils?i come forth to tender unto you the truest thanks of iny class and its teachers, for the niauy benefits we have received during the period of your trust. We own them as being principally the produc- ' tiei<s of your real and unremitting attention in the ' discharge of that trust committed unto you, not as ] the duo of necessity to your place. We are grateful, 1 nnd ever shall be happy lo acknowledge our obliga- ' tions to you. gentlemen, the trustee- of our education 1 ?nothing gives us more pleasure than your visits. I 1 We have been preparing to stand this test. We rejoice I ] that the time has arrived, and that you arc already on your inissiou We ar- convinced of the pains and 1 interest you have tat en to promote our knowledge, by 1 the prompt and time'y supply < ? all school necessaries, I and should we fail to exhibit that acquaintance with our studies that you so justly expeot, to ourselves alone, not to you, gentlemen, nor our good teachers, 1 can tl.e fault be attributed. Your solicitude has not { been equalled by the trustees of any of the city schools. Our teae n rs have as competent and as kind as could bu iound. and now what remains Is to ascertain 1 whether we have improved our advantages. Before commencing, then, upon examination, we congratulate you. and the people you represent, that by your cuergetic and due regard to our welfare, you have more than 1 1L-U1J/.L-U lilt' mush r n ufc Ul lie VAIH-UIHUOIIS HI L11H guar- 1 dians. nud tho parents of tin- district ; nud by your frcqueut, gentlemanly visits, you have shed a lustre over the destinies of the school. A well bred manner marks the rising classes, that adds much to their Intelligence. nnd portends still more good to thorn in after lifo. 1 r'rom such has the truth been established, that "example outeeps precept." All have been apprized of the great aud visible effects of this truth, in this school. Oh, how happy are you in having society become tho monument of your works. Your works shall not be hid. The spectators, in after days, shall look upon thoro grown strong with time, aud shall bestow on them a prayer of prntit nd?. Society knows no benefit like to thophiluuthropist. who labors for its education ? lie alone is its truest friend; tberoluro shall ho not sleep in nothingness. His acts shall ace uipnny him to happiness?but their effects shall outlive his years. The child ilius educated by him. becomes, in after times, the teacher of others, and these again to others, to an infinite scries, until that which seemed so small a favor in Its birth, increases to be a great and most extensive good. For this, to you. gentlemen, to your predecessors. and to our good teachers, are all the merits due. All tho intelligence within thee walls, are tho productions of your care. ? ? ? llumble as this is. we give it with all good will, as the most appropriate emblem of our esteem. It Is a small sample of that education which you have labored to extend. The various classes in leading wore then examined, and sustained themselves with great ercdit. the strictest observance being uiways laid to the punctuation, emphasis aud cadence. Thoro were several classes ex ami nod in geography, and the most difficult questlous were answered with promptness and accuracy, as were also those in astronomy, botnny. arithmetic and grammar. During Urn exercise*, tho intermissions were frequently tilled by Misses White and Keys, on the piano; nnd the song of "Meet ine in the willow glen," by Mis* Key-*. was admirab'e. i lie following lines, dedicated to the memory of A.

There were several beautiful samples of embroidery ind drawing which attracted universal attention, and lot unworthily, for they were perfect, aud showed the treat pains taken by the teachers to place them, iu >very department. above the scbolarsof any other ichool in the city; and it in doubtful if another school, loutaiuiug three hundred and fifty scholars, can be bund to compete with this. The examination being >ver. books were awarded to a number of the scholars or their energy and advancement in tho different damrtmunts of education; among which was a beautiful floral Album to Miss Caroline Smith by Mies i'eixote. or her advancement in botany. Tb? morning was most ileasantly spent by those present, and it was. indeed, a rich feast to witness such intelligence and energy tmong the young ladies of the school, all of whom ao{uitted themselves with credit to their teachers and to ihe institution. Iticntcliw* and natlcal. Bowser Theatre.?If there was any doubt of the rstimation in which John R. Soott and Miss Mary raylor are held by the patrons of the Bowery Theatre, an insight into that house since, they have been engaged. would remove all scruples. With them and Burke aud Clarko. Mrs. Phillips and othcip, and with the pains taken to please the audiences, which areevi lent to all. it would be a wonder ludeed, if the house were not well patronised. Within a short time, these :elebratcd actors aud uctrosses had appeurod iu several pieces, on which aud on the acting we havo favorably commented. In one of them especially, entitled l,Keu!al Times," or the " Court of James tho Third," Mr. Scott shines preeminent, and in the grand Eastern spectacle entitled "Cherry and Fair Star." M.hs Taylor as Chorry, has amused and delighted ail who have witnessed her performances. As a spectacle piece, the latter is unexceptionable. We perceive that both of these pieces will be repeated this evening, the latter one for the last time, with Mies Taylor in whloh that talented actress and vocalist will perform and slug. Novelties of no ordinary kind are in preparation and will soon be produced at this theatre. Chatham Theatre.?Another full house at the Chatham theatre last night?and full house s maybe expected, as long as the management is conducted as it now is. Mr. Vurrey. wo believe, will take a benefit hero this evening, and the bill which he has put forth Is of no ordinary kind. Tho pioces are well selected ; snd in addition to the regular company, several actors :>f great merit will take part in tho performances. These consist of a well chosen variety?dramatic and musical. The drama of the "Oenouucor," will be the first piece, to be succoeded by dances, highland flings, hornpipes, duets. Kthiopenn minstrelsy, Sic., and the evening's amusements will conclude with another Jrama. " Sarah the Jewess, or the Uream of Kate.**! Were the Chatham as large again as it is. it wouj^ filled on an occasion iiko this, when so many i?*'juCe. mentsare offered to attend it. Tho particular a ^ JJlli Win UU iUUUU 111 bUV UlUU.TUiUUl CUIUUiy Niblo'b, Astor Place.?There wa9R?ory large assembly last evening to witness the w onderful dances of the " pet" Vlennoises children, < jj0 haTP) alnco ti,0 opening of Mr. Niblo s place, fillet' nightly this theatre. It is a aucees3 wh'.ch crcic.t e* tndo. and which, would perhaps, have no end, if tho "engagement of these littlo fairies was not drawing to its close. The grand " Chinese Balubile," ws'j again received with unbounded plaudits, and e'.icited roars of laughter among the audience. It is uselr,Bg to say that the English vaudevilles were performs j with great taste and histrionio talent. The bill fon this evening is composed of the best dances of Viennoisus children's repertory: " The Pas dea Amourettes," and the " Pas Hongrois," and the Chinese llallet." intervened by the two playa of the Four Sisters," and Thumping Legacy." No doubt the house will be crowded as usual. Castle Garden.?Tho performances at this establishment are nightly becoming more and more popular with our citizens, us well as the hosts of strangers that are sojourning in Gotham. Tho very fact of having plenty of space to admit of roaming about with fw* dom during the iuteivals between tho pieces, is tjuito an attractive feature. The beautiful cosmorauiic views are also truly worthy Inspection, and well calculated t? relieve the tedium ot uu intermission. Tonight. the interesting two act drama of ' Old Hunesty" is to he repeuted. its first representation having been received with such enthusiastic applause. Mrs. H. Phillips.Mis* Phillips,Mrs. Krary and Mr. U. ilolman will i'avor the audience with a musical olio, consisting of 'avorito songs, arias and ballads, which are nightly received with rupturous applause. The entertainments soucludc with the lively tarcelta entitled-'John, Pretty John." iu which Mr Holland and Miss Nickiuson both ippoar. Steyermarkische Concert.?The Steyermarkisohe musical company, who have made themselves so selcbrated by the excellence of their performances^ tviil give their second concert since their return after Lhcir tour, at the Tabernacle this evening. Several avertures, marches, quadrilles, &c., by Strauss, Beethoven, Lanner, and other eminent composers', are adrvrtlsed in the programme, and in such hands it may be well known how they will be performed. Tho career of this company since their appearance among us has been very successful, but not more so ilian thry leserved. Their performances speak for tbeinselvis, and invariably attract large audiences. This will be the case to-night, we have no dout\t. Tabernacle?Concert ok Maurice Strakoui, Ti aniat to the Emperor ok IUsiia.?Wo really pity those who were not pi useut last night, at this wire* musicale. They missed a great treat, we can as.-uro them. The success of this very eminent pianist has ? ?- J <cvu ??<- ?*, """ """ UVJVLIU 111" UOSITIS. I 1 IS CIlpA'lllities wore fully anil successfully displayed in a classical ami romantic si-lection, which wu performed in an eminently artislicai style, and drew forth enthusiastic plauditn troin n very crowded auditory, comprising all the fashionable people of our city?a largo number of amateurs and professionals, an extensive assemblage of beauty aud elegance, and many of the leading gentry of New York. The piano forte is, of all instruments, the one which has. in our time, attained its highest degree of development in Its mechanical practice; hut uuder the lively lingers of M. Slrakosh we admired more than ever the Rweetuoss and brilliancy of tone so peculiar to tho instrument. The overture of'' William Tell,'* that maguiilceni production of Rossini, afforded the performer a great and powerful theme upon which to execute his brilliant variations; and in the itxtuorfinale from "Krnani.'' be imitated In ih vocal aud iustrumental mu.-ic, with a skill and science worthy of the highest praise. The most beautiful piece, however, was that entitud "Tbe Naad." a sort of fantastic oratorio, in which the musician imitated, with remarkable correctness, the murmur of waters, the dew fulling on the fluwi rs. and all the mysteries of the wood . among which the nightingales display their magic singing. This remarkable piece was followed by the celebrated " Triumphal March of Isly," by De Meyer, which M. Strako.-h rendered iu his own style, if not as well as ever did the Ueruian artist. at least without any contortion, as is generally ihe habit with the pianists to the Kmperor of Austria. ' We may add that the audience was so enthusiastic in Its expression of approbation, that all the pieces performed by M. S. wero encored, and at the end of ihc> concert, the prettiest lady among the audience threw a iplendid houi/utl. at M. S.'s feet, an act of excessive politeness which wns doubtless fully appreciated by tho performer. Wo must now say a word or two in reference ;othe two Si;;nora. who assisted M. Strokosh. vix: S'ganrina Amnlia nud her mother. Barili I'atti. They sang the splendid duo of " Norma '' in ft magnificent style. I'ho grand aria from " Sapho," was one of the most irominent features of th? vocal concert. M. Henry , Schrlever is a distinguished violinist, whose success *o tskc delight in recording. In his concerto of I)e Be iot. anil nrineinallv in the viirlatinns en <? I iinia iU ,Mnmennoor," the young artist adorned, with a splen- * m lid style, the admirable mimic of Donizetti. Let us ? erminatp this comnie rendu, by giving due credit to Maestro Uarili for his ability in accompanying eucli xirformer or dinger. It is not the first time we hare renarked the high faculties of this musician, whom wo tad the pleasure of hearing perform four new couipoutions, viz : two polka*. " iluena Vista"' and Laura;" joth brillinnt and melodious pieces, then a Redowa."' ind finally a waltz called ."lira Klorez." ivhieh enmileted this hnrmonious quatuor. From the brillinnt uccess attending M. Ntrakosh. we learn that ho has nude arrangements for another concert, which will irobably take place about the middle of uext week. Tin: Mosplaisir Bam.f.t (iomfasv.?These highly 'dented artists, after having terminated a very sue:cseful engagement at Philadelphia, arrived yesterday n New York, where they are to appear at the Broadray theatre on the Oih of next uiouth.
