June 14.| The Delta, we believe, was the first journal in which the design of establishing u republic between the Rio Qrande and the Sierra Madre was fully exposed. In the absorbing political excitement which prevails among our people, but little attention seems to be given to h movement oi a most momentous character, and bearing niton the future history of this continent. This plan is no wihl theoretical conception of some ambitious chief, nor does it embrace ideas which will require some time for their full developement. It is u general, concerted, practical scheme of brave, sagacious, energetic men, who have only to put forth th"ir strength in a single eflort, to annihilate every vestige of Mexican power and control on this side of the great natural boundary, which once the belt, is destined soon to be the Chinese will?the northern boundary of the republic of Mexico. The progress of this movement, from this time forth, will not be counted by years or months, hut i? a ? ?i 1._ r.'_ ;i,? uv iiuu wccivo. ri?iu uic ia|uu |?iuotvum'" of their plans, it is highly probable that the two great political parties, who are now engrossed in bringing forward their respective candidates for the highest offices in tile gift of the people, will hardly have completed their work, before the starting up of another republic upon our southern boundary will throw a new element of discord in their midst. A new ground for party strife will be created. Another annexation question will be introduced into the contest?an issue, which, like that of the Texas question of 1844, will prove the Aaron's rod of all other issues. Hut there will be this great difference between the question of annexing the Sierra Madre and that of annexing Texas. The former will be constituted hv the almost unanimous movement of the people, of whom there are but very few of Anglo-American origin. There will be no question as to the fairness, justice and right of those engaged in declaring and establishing the independence of this country. It will be the act of the people, who have the right to make and unmake, to build up and overturn their government The action of our government on the subject, will be controlled entirely by considerations of policy and expediency. Don Jose F. G. Carena arrived in our city on Saturday lastt from Tampico, for the purpose of procuring a printing press and the necessary, materials to commence, at Tampico( the publication of a journal devoted to the establishment of the republic of Sierra Madre. Senor Carena is an accomplished Mexican, a writer of great ability, and has borne a conspicuous part in many of the stirring scenes of Mexican revolutions. He has ever belonged to the federal republican party of his country, and has suffered much in the cause. Understanding fully the character and wants of the people, and the condition of the country, Senor Carena has perceived the grent advantages, nay, the absolute necessity, of detaching the northern portion of Mexico from the body ofthe republic, and creating it an independent republic, capable, in case it should he deemed expedient bv the parties interested, of being annexed to the t 'nited States. In a long and interesting conversation we had with Senor Carena, we learn that the plan which has been concocted and agreed upon at Tampico, embrace the States of Tamautipas, Nuevo Leon, nnrl tmrlu of fho nf Vi?rn (!rn? iin/J PnoMu with an invitation to the adjacent States to join in the movement. The Mexicans of these States, thoroughly dissatisfied and disgusted with the continual revolutions and uncertainties of the Mexican republic, seek some peace, relief, and stability in a new order of tilings. They wish to live under a real republic ; not one in name alone?not one resting for its support only on Mexican character and stability?but one which they hope to strengthen by introducing into the country the hardy emigrants from Europe, and the brave sons m of tlm United Statcs-^a republic which will secure toleration of all religions, the utmost freedom of opinion and thought; and which, for the continued strifes of ambitious chiefs, the wars of faction?, and the rivalries of castes, will substitute the peaceful pursuits, the elevating arts, and the hightoned freedom, which have made this republic the envy and admiration of the world. All classes of the people are in favor of this measure, save the olliee-holders, the placemen under the Mexican government. The most distinguished and influential men in the country, as well as the mass of the people, unite in its support. All that is necessary to attain their ends is the aid of some o( our gallant volunteers, and a supply of ammunition. Jfo secure these, the States and the rich men are willing to hypothecate their lands to raise funds. 4 The most serious difficulty with which the n"w republic will have to contend, grows out of the hold and threatening aspect of the Indian races. They have lately risen in various parts of the country, and burned and sacked many estates, killing the proprietors. Fears are entertained that their nggressions will become more general and aggravated. A week or so ago, one hundred nnd twenty men marched to Upper Tampieo, to defend the place from the Indians, who had nrrnnged n plan of attacking it during the feasts. Hut these savages will viv'd easily to American bullets and 'I'l,umII bo ? f?p ,f ,,r l??i .<000 American soldier* in the new republic, aa soon as it is proclaimed, ready to take a part in its defence and organization. The treaty with Mexico has been consummated . It is now on its way to Washington, and in a few days will be promulgated as the law of the land. The boundary line between Mexico and the United States, indicated in that treaty, will, we predict, never be drawn. Without any agency of the Uqited States, the engineers who may be sent there to run the line, will find that there is no republic of Mexico north of the Sierra Madrc. They will have to return, and wait for further treaties with other powers, before such boundaries can be settled mid designated. The menc, inrnc, trkd, nphnrsin of North Mexico has been written in H iming letters, upon the snowy heights of Sierra M idre, and the flag of a new Anglo-Mexican republic waves in triumph along the whole rugged line of that great impassable barrier. Thf. IsniMts of Tehtantepeo.?Our letters from line rota ro show that llie subject of the canal across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec has been brought before the Congress of Mexico, and bills have been proposed to authorize the formation ? f colonies of foreigners, with the object of running tins cana1. Whether this plan is connected with the treaty of Guadalupe, or is an independent measure, a hid for foreign aid and indemnity, we have not yet the means of learning. But if it contemplates the transfer of the authority of cartying on this great work, to any other power but the United States, it will be well for our government to interfere promptly to prevent any such act, and to a sert our superior ability and greater interest in the completion of this great enteriftise. If provision has been made with reference to tins subject in the treaty of Guadalupe, it will go far to reconcile many of the opponents of that measure. It must be confessed that neither our government nor our people seem to be sufficiently aroused to the importance of this enterprise. If Mexico has authorized colonies to be for.tied on the proposed line of the canal, it will certainly be our duty to t ike immediate ste| s to secure the benefit of such grants. If we do notj Great Britain ceitainly will. She lias, through her intrigues on the coast of Honduras and in Yucatan, placed herself in a position to take advantage of any opportunity which may present itself of realizing a long-cherished scheme. The British officers on the coast have in their |>ossession the surveys and maps, which have been m tdc from lime to time, of the route across the Isthmus by the riverSun.Tuan. Une of the earliest, if not the very first of these expeditions, was under the command of Horatio Nelson, then a stripling lieutenant, who lo.t one-half of his crew from exposure ire making the purvey, but succeeded in ascertaining the practicability, indeed, the f.icility, of cutting a namil across the Isthmus. The maps and notes of this survey are now in this city, in the possession of one of our most intelligent engineers. To frustrate the plans of Great ilritain, and to secure to the United States the entire control of the intercommunication of the two great oceans which lash our either shore, will he the imperative (Ilitv of our government?a duty which, we trust, will not be lost sight of during the excitements of political strife in which our people and our politicians seem to he almost entirely uhsorbed.?JVew Orlrann Delta, June I I. Tiie RKftnt.tr ok GfATKMJii.A.?The Diario fir la Manna (llsvana) contains news from Guatemala to the 3d of May. General Carrera. President of Guateniala, hud left the capital with some forces in order to direet the operations ngaim-t the insurgents, who kept the country in n state of continual inquietude. Cnrrera determined to try pacific menus before lie resorted to torre. As in Yucatan, ecclesia?tical mediation was resorted to in order to pacify the Indians. Accordingly, various priests and curates left San Sebastian, Matasquesciuntla, Ksquipulas, and other places, on the mission of peace: hut in a short time they returned without having been able E NE NE to effect anything by their exhortations. The union with the insurgents of the Indians who inhabit the vicinity of Jalapa, who had always been the most seditious in Yucatan, and who now advance more inadnii ssable pretentions than the others, has obliged Carrera to abandon all idea of temporizing. The people oj the revolted districts ure wandering about and suffering the greatest misery. Much injury has been caused to the commerce of Guatemala by the interruption of the mails and th* seizure of foreign letters by the insurgents. In .latiapn, Mita and pt other points, there have been encounters with the Indians, in which they fought with much valor, although almost ulways beaten by the government troops, who have recovered fresh courage since Carrern has taken command in person. The council of war continues in session, nnd has discussed the project of a law for the convocation of a legislative body. As soon as the discussion is ended, the j manner of electing the representatives will be arranged. The States of Central America wish to establish a central power, persuaded that neither one of them alone can present much resistance to the unjust ambition of uny stronger power that wishes to destroy its independence. A ( osta Hica i paper recommends that the charge ot the foreign j j uflairs of all the States should be committed to one alone. In this manner the States, without being j j deprived of their sovereignty, will he inure respect- , ed abroad. Some disagreement existed between the States of Saif Salvador and Guatemala, on account of the forces of the former having involuntarily invaded the territories of the latter,which happened in this manner: some parties of the insurgents i pursued by the troops of Guatemala, tied into the territory of San Salvador. The Guatemalians were ! commanded by a colonel who twice entered San j Salvador?once at the hacienda of Matulopa, where j the boundaries are not well defined, and another time by crossing the frontier at the river La Pa*, ! and penetrated half a league in pursuit of the rebelH j who had encamped on the banks of the river, and ! ( made incursions thence into Guatemala. The ex- ! ; planations given by that State in reply to the d.v j mands of San Salvador, ought to have convinced the latter that ther# was no hostile intention on the ! part of Guatemala. It is believed that there will be a rupture on account of this, which without doubt will complicate the danger which menace them on account of the war of castes. Interesting from the Sandwich Islands.? Accounts to March 1st announce the arrival at Honolulu of Mr. Dillon, Consul of France, wi'h power to exchange ratifications of the treaty of 26th March, 1846. He was received by King Kamehameha with considerable ceremony. The government press, the Polynesian, at Honolulu, has been placed under the directorship of Charles E. Hitchcock, Esq., as successor to n J. Jarvis, Esn - who is shout to return to the TTniteil Stutes Captain l)uprie?has been fined $500 for a breach of the license law. Admiral Bruat had left Tahiti for France, taking with him a Tahitian chief and seven youths, whose parents stipulated they should be educated in th? Protestant faith, liueen Pomare has engaged ltev. Mr.'Thompson, Protestant Missionary at Papete, to superintend the education of her six children. .Samoa is in a distracted state. The people in the western part of the Upola have left their iionics and lands to prevent wur, and are scattered in various parts of the island. A duel was fought at Honolulu in the latter part of February, but without any more serious result than that all the parties to it, principals and seconds, were brought before the police court and fined $10 each, us peace breakers. The new Catholic Bishop for the church at Honolulu arrived there in January, in a French corvette, together with a church organ and other church property. Business at Honolulu (says a correspondent of the Boston Atlas) is greatlydepressed. In 1847 there had been a falling off of 200 whale ships, equivalent to a decrease of one-third of the ordinary business. The imports had increased in a corresponding ratio, leaving the market heavily overstocked with all kinds of merchandise on January 1, 1848. Since then, merchandise to the value of $400,000 more had come in and lay idle in the warehouses. Waldo & Co., McClay it Co., it Robinson and a number of others, had been compelled to give up business. American domestics were sold at 2s. 3d., the manufacturer's prices. English and China goods were falling in like proportion. The mercnants and tradespeople generally anticipate worse times before the year is out. Those who have funds are unable to remit to the United States. Exchangeis difficult to be procured at even par, and will soon command a premium. Jn 1846 and 1, U. S. bills were selling at 20 percent, discount. As there is no export, specie is going out of the country. Within a few months $200,000 havs been shipped offi mostlv to China. The whalers repair to Ma_:n_ i.- 1 -?i - una, imiii; itiiu inner puns, 10 recruit, lie I ng nearer their hunting grounds. Lynching at Buffalo.?A police case at Buffalo, on the 20th inst., elicited the following circumstances as narrated in the Buffalo Commenrial Advertiser .?" Isaac Dean, a colored man, arrived in this city on Sunday from Chicago on the steamer Oregon, and applied to another colored man named Harrison to procure him a house. On Monday evening Harrison informed Dean that he had obtained a house, and requested him to get into his wagou and he would drive him to it, which he did. But instead of taking him to the house as lie pretended, he drove out of the city, when the wagon was surrounded by a gang of persons, five of whom jumped into the wagon?all colored men? who seized him, and pulled him over backwards, and gagged him?one of them driving the gag into his month with his foot. They then pulled off his coat and vest, and "ed his vc?t over his mouth, threatening that if he made any noise they would kill him. They drove two or three miles out of town, and then stopped, one ol :h in saying, let us wait until the old man eom -s, up and see if he wants to go any further.' Dean then asked what they wanted of him ! One of them said, ' Drive on, he is ahead,' and another said, Who!' The reply was, Holden.' They then drove on until they came to nore men, when he was taken over the fence iear what looked like a brook. They then tied his hands again, and put his knees up through Ins arms so that he could not move, and one of them said, ' let the old man whip hitu?he is the best man to do it.' Dean then began to beg, calling liim Hoi den, and thought it was Ilolden. I)eau then received n hundred lashes witli rawhides. One ot them then said, 'tell what I want you to say? tell the truth now, whether you betrayed that man in Chicago, for we intend to swear you and then hang you.' Dean refused to say that he did so. One ot them then said, 'give him 500 lashes, and he will tell the truth;' and they then recommenced whipping him, but he made some noise. tSonie one then took him by the throat, and choked him until he was insensible. When lie recovered he heard one of them say, ' you ought not to chuke him to death, or we shall not have the fun of hanging him.' Some of them were busy rigging up a gallows, by tying rails together, drc. One of them then sat clown beside him, and asked him what he received forbetruying that man in Chicago. Dean denied all knowledge of any such transaction. He then looked around and saw that they had got his two pocket books, and had taken out the money and papers. He begged of them not to take his money, tor it was all lie had ; but they took it all, and he has not recovered any. He had in his pocket book eight five dollar l>i11st, six three dollar bills, tour live (rune pieces, and oilier change. It was unite light then, as the moon was up, and tliey said,'there is not a hundred dollars in all?if he has betrayed any niggar, he g it poor pay?this is a small allowance when sliar.-d all around.' Harrison then came and felt of him, and said, 'he is pretty well cat to pieces, except one small nlace here?you had better give him about twenty lashes more, and not hang him.' They were not agreed as to whether they had given him 54)0 lashes or 300. They then fell to, and gave him the other twenty, previous to which they lind put a rope around Ins neck, with a running noose, so as to choke him. They then untied him, and told him to dress quick, and leave liuf- | falo before daylight. One of them staid by and ! helped Jiim to put on his clothes, still threatening . him. After he got dressed he crawled back, and i found that he was on Batavia straet. Several j ! blacks have been held to bail to answer to the j charge of the assault and gattcry."

June 3.] Address of thk Council of tub Irish Concede- i i ration to the Ikish People.?Fellow countrymen ?Another crune has been perpetrated against the inhabitants of this country by the British govern- | ment. Another Irishman has fallen a victim to the , machinations of legal artifice, and to the lawless neas of reckless power. ] His offence has been?love for Ireland as intense ! as was his hatred of foreign oppression. Deeply versed in the history of his country, he read in that . history one continuous tule of English perfidy and , rapine. In the horrors of 1847?in the desolation , of 1848, he found the same curse of misrule blight- i ing a land, fitted by the hand of nature for the en- i ' joy ment of unrivalled felicity. Saddened and ' stung by such reflections, he vowed that he would ' expel from Ins native soil this spirit of evil, or perish 1 1 in the attempt. , We seek not to discuss the prudence of his conn- i sels, or the exiwdiency of his designs. Though ! ? participating in many of his sentiments, our confederation never identified itself with all his opin- i ' ions ; hut even those who dissent from them most, | ' uonot deny that they were dictated hv the purest j j motives, that they were maintained with consum- | mate ability, and vindicated with heroic fortitude, i Our complaint is not, that such a man was treated 1 as a foe by the British government; but that in ' order to crush him, the constitution and the Ipw have been violated. To tear him from his country, 1 and from Iiih family, a special enactment was 1 framed. Even the penal code of Ireland ? tbut repository of iniquitous legislation, could not supply an instrument powerful enough to strike him ' down, it became necessary to forge a new weapon ' for the man, and for the occasion. . The enactment of this law, though a gross out- 1 rage against public liberty, has been less intolerable > .1,*, ??.. i i its execution. Gatliolics of Ireland! bow down your heads in shame. You huve been branded as unworthy to take part in the administration of justice in your native land. On the late trial you have seen every Catholic inhabitant of this city ignominiously chased as perjurers from the jury box. Slaves you are?slaves you and your children deserve to remain, if you resent not, as one man, this insult. We refrain here from recapitulating details already but too well known. None will contradict us when we affirm that Mr. Mitchel has been found guilty by a jury selected not to try, but to convict him. By these nefarious arts a momentary triumph has been consummated?a triumph not over an obnoxious foe, but over theHucred obligations ofajustice, over the violated liberties of a nation. Against you, against your children, against your aspirations for freedom, not ugainst an arraigned or convicted patriots have the late prosecution been directed. Have these iniquities subdued your spirit ! Have they quelled your discontent 1 Have they abrogated your resolve 1 Have tlicy schooled you to kiss the foot which tramples and spurns you f These arc questions which each man amongst you must answer for himseli. For us, we declare that our resolve is not only unshaken, but is confirmed, and rendered more stern by these outrages of unscrupulous power. We will not conceal from you?we will not conc<AI from the government, that nothing but the most strenuous exertions of our council prevented the outbreak of an insurrection last week. Thousands of brave men had resolved that John Mitchel should not leave the Irish shore,except across their corpses. We apprehended that, under present circumstances, an armed attempt to rescue him, and to free Ireland, might have proved abortive. We therefore interposed, and with difficulty succeeded in preventing the fruitless effusion of blood. n? aAil.t t. -ill * ??- - ' 1 liui nmi;i ttt uceumc um iu avow mm Slicn lias | been our conduct, we do no< feel at liberty to con- , ceal from you that the recent indignities offered t to the Irish nation, have greatly tended to remove t from our minds the hope which we have heretofore desired to cherish, that the question ut issue ) between England and Ireland will be settled by i amicable adjustment. We feel bound to tell you, t without disguise, tl^u these indignities and wrongs t are rapidly hringinjrtts to that period when untied 1 resistance to the oppressors of our country will be- ' " corne a sacred obligation, enforced by the highest J sanctions of public duty. < Under these impressions we cannot shrink from r the responsibility of advising you to prepare at ' once for the protection of your invaded liberties.

Frank Harvey, a son of the respected Lieut.'-Governor of this province, insulted the son of the Hon. James McNab, at a hall last autumn. At a ball last Mondav the insult was repeated. Friends interfered. The matter was still unsettled, and Mr. Harvey assailed Mr. Dickson yesterday in the street. A crowd gathered. They took sides with Mr. Dickson, and pursued Lieut. Harvey through Hollis, Water, Jacobs, Argyle, and Harrington streets to Government House, where nearly 1,000 people had collected. Frank was nowhere to be seen, but his excellency the Lieut.-Governor, in his usual urbane manner, expostulated with the crowd und Mr. Dickson?assuring them thai the law would protect Mr. Dickson, nnd that he would do all in his power as a governor Hnd a parent to give satisfaction. Mr. Dickson replied that if lie did not get satisfaction he would horsewhip the onenaer wnerever ne couia?soon slier which the i crowd moved off, with three cheers for Dickson, and thus ended the nine days' wonder of n revolu- < tion in Halifax." I.XTkRfcsriNO Phenomenon.?At the ens works, r now in course of construction at Hufiiilo, there oc- ' curred, a few dnvs since, in the construction of n ' welj, a circumstance worthy of observation. After ^ having penetrated some twenty-five feet from ihe r surface, the laborers came upon rock. This is the i coniferous rock of Eaton, and the upper limestone n ol the Helderberg series of our State geologists. " which underlies our city, and a large portion of 1 D ike Erie, adjacent. At about one-fourth of a nule from the point in question, an artesian well 8 had recently been carried down through (Iuh and H its associate rocks, about one hundred feet, before water was obtained, and then, although the supply 8I is abundant, it is so charged with sulphuretted by- tl drogen gas as to be offensive and useless. Surh tl water, for the purjaises of the gas company, would be particularly worthless, as they require the best of water for washing their gas, and absorbing from " it this identical fetid odor. There remained, how- K ever, no alternative but to penetrate the rock, and risk the result. The well was accordingly bricked up to the surface, and the boring of the rockfeoin- n menced. Having penetrated it wventy-five inches, ti the drill fell into a cavity in the roek, and on being 1 withdrawn, was followed by a id of water, which ; continued to (low until it had tilled the well to the 11 level of the lake?which makes the water in the ,J well uhout twenty feet deep. Subsequent observations have shown that the supply fountain, in this ^ case, is Lake Erie; for when the waters of the lake rise or fall, by the action of the wind, the water in tt this well invariably conforms to all such changes ot of level. This, like all sedimentary rocks, is. of I n course, stratified; and this formation in also some- 111 what remarknhle for its large and numerous finsurra, or joint*; and it is through one of these pis- 1 tl sagos, xten ing from beneath the lake to the point ' reached by the drill, that this, to the company, in- t* Valuable supply of pure wafer is obtained. The fli unforeseen importance to the gnseonipany, of com- of mcncing their operations as they did, directly over this fissure, has resulted in iiicnlculable advantages "I to them; while, to the investigator of nature, this t' well furnishes a fine illustration of that law which j, governs the production of springs and fountains.? i* Buffalo Com.

Long espe [era: 1. lence. unvarying In itn results. proves lieyond ques- ' ion that, even without referencu to religious consideraoiti, the morality, the comfort unci happiness of a nnftnunlty nro intimntely dependant on the periodical pportunity for calm reflection and respite from the area, the toils and excitement* of ordinary life, of irdod by the recurrence of one day in seven for reose. In this view alone, apart from all religious obli- j ition, it is, in the opinion of the Grand Jury, greatly ' | ) be desired that the increased numbersand efficiency f the police, as well as other means, might be entploy1 effectually in diminishing the very large resort, liiotly of the young, to cigar shops, public houses, and rocerles, which now present scarcely any peroeptlble ifference between Sunday and the other days of the eok?the difference, indeed, if there be any, being to le disadvantage of that which should be a day of rest, ?cause on that day the frequenters of these places are lore at leisure than on any other. An equally conspicuous ground for censure is the ractice of racing, or at least, of furious driving, for hich our prinoipal avenues and some of the streets re made, on Sunday, the arena. This, and the notoous existence of numerous gaming-houses, not unnown. it is said, to the police, are fitting subjects for te interference of the police authorities, and cry oud for amendment. i It is not too much to say that the evils of which Sun- | ay idleness aud its concomitant, Sunday drinking.are j i o unproliflc source, are sadly brought to view in the j rogress of a visit to the (Mtv Prison, where It is la- I ' tentable Co behold so many human b ings deprived of , lat liberty which they have used to the prejudice of i )ciety The Grand Jury found this iuHtitution phycally in good condition?clean, tolerably well ventilasd, and free from confusion and disorder. They reret to eay, however, that a want of good moral organation in painfully perceptible; classification of the rlsonerH is but vory imperfectly attained, and there In 11 almost total want of such employment rh would at nee conduce to the welfare of the inmates and the ecuniary advantage of the city. The fault here lies ot with the able und faithful Superintendent, Mr. dmonds, but with the public authorities, whose agent e is, and to whose province of duty it belongs to in'odueo a better system. In happy contrast, under this especial head, is the ouse of Refuge. at the foot of Twenty-third street, ere for nearly a quarter century has been in active nd successful operation one of the noblest and most enehcient reformatory systems ever devised by hulan philanthropy. The physical, moral and intellectil redemption of thousands who were almost lost, has een^phieved. and still the good work is going on dth^By. efficiently, under the intelligent administraon of the Society for the Reformation of Juvenile elinquents, and of the various officers to whom the cecution of its designs Is intrusted. There are now i the refuge two hundred and fifty boys, and sixty rls, chiefly supplied from the city, though small addions are made from other parts of the State. The inatcs are carefully instructed in the useful branches ' a plain Knglish education, and are besides usefully nployed in various handicrafts, qualifying them to II reputable and advantageous stations In society, hen they arc fitted for a return to Its duties and its rivileges?a great step to such return being effected y the system of binding out those whose conduct in le refuge proves them worthy, to such employers, reding in the country, as are willing to take apprences from the institution. The records abound with roofs and illustrations of the happy agoncy exerted 1 this way by the refuge. The best evidence that can bo afforded of good and umano management, on the part of those haviugthe [large of these youthful candidates for reform, is the ict that, notwithstanding 'he unfavorable influences mid which their childhood was generally passed, natuilly tending to sow the seeds of disease, the Grand ury found only two girls, and not one boy, on the sick st. Equally strong testimony to the excellence of le moral care omployed is presented in the established irtainty that about three-fourths of those who enter le institution leave it thoroughly reformed. Visits re continually received from such, now become proserous and respected members of society. About one-third of the expense Is defrayed, annually, y the proceeds of the boys' labor ; the residue is met y grants from the Statu, and by the license tax on tieatres, Sic The physical condition of the refuge appeared to the irand Jury all that could be desired ; cleanliness and mor were siricujr vuaurwuu ujr??u^(ioiji, H i i > 'hole system of government is manifestly a happy I ombination of firmness, kindness, judicious control I nd mild persuasion The next establishment visited was the Bellevue loapital, occiipyiny the site formerly I; nown M the Ims House, extending from 26th to 28th street, and ' om the Klrst Avenue to the Hast River. ThiH great i barity, though now greatly relieved from the iinmunse urden of disease that was unexpectedly thrown upon by the pestilential immigration of last year, still has bout Ave hundred sick under medical care. Its ciipallltles have been severely tried, as well as the fortiude. skill and industry of the resident physician and is assistants; and it was gratifying to the Gmnd Jury i see how ample, systematic and efficient wore all the rrnngeinents for the relief of that suffering which (it the provi nue of the Hospital to alleviate Notwithanding the large number of patients, all the provions for oleanliness and ventilation were most cotnlete, and strictly attended to ; while the assiduous are ot tin; medical gentlcuieu and their attendants eraed rather to indicate the kindness of friendship i ia 11 the mere cold observance of compensated duty The attention of the Grand Jury was called to the rent superiority of iron bedsteads, with which two nly of the wards are furnished. The substitution of i lese, for the kinds now in use in all the other wards. I suggested as eminently desirable. The new Nursery buildings on Randall's Island, ten i i number, were inspected with unmingled satisfac- 1 on Nenrly a thousand children?the orphans of the i ity?are here comfortably provided for ; enjoying the ] adispensable requisites, not always accessible to the bildren even of parents in comfortable circumstances, < f pure air and water, wholesome food, clean clothing, jaoious dormitories, ample play-grounds, well-arranged i ;hool-rnonis. and. in short, every thing conducive to i aalthy and happy developement. The appearance of ; ie inmates abundantly shows that all their wants are umanely and wisely cared for. I Not the least satisfactory visit made by the Grand i ury was to Ward's Island, where the Commissioners i r Emigration have been for some time engaged in i inking arrangements for the reception of the unfor- I mates wlw> claim their peculiar care. Ample bulldigs for this purpose have been provided, with every bing else needful ; and there Is reason to hope and besve. that even such unother vast influx as that of st year would find the commissioners, at ail points, ady to meet the exigency. The only thing yet I anting is a hospital ror inn rick among the liauii- J ants. and this is now in progress. i Here we found nearly tlve hundred recent emigrants ] >f whom two hundred are children) mostly of that ass who, upon arrival, aro unable to take care of i lemselve*. and require temporary shelter. Tills new > latum in the eleemosynary operations of this city, in- ' listed to the superintendence of a small number of jr fellow citizens, well known for their public spirit ad philanthropy, presents many characteristics wor- l iy of especial observation. ( Though a StAte institution, the commission is per- i rming a great amount of labor of incalculable bene- I I to the eity. This being the point to which nearly r 1 the emigration from the various countries of the I Id World is converging, the miugling of these people I ith our own poor?as must have been the case under I rmer circumstances?and the admission of so many I to our institutions, tilled as they already are. almost t repletion, must necessarily have burdened them to I i intolerable extent. The substitution of this mode superintending the affairs of the recent emigrant ( ipiilatlon. independent as it is of political mutations, r id intrusted to well known hands, we cannot but re- j ird as a happy improvement. The np pearance of the f talilishment at Ward's Island Is highly creditable to I parties concerned; and. though in existence hut a \ iar, and commenced under unfavorable cironinstan- I s. It is inferior to none we have seen; and we have 1 aid assurances that it is mauaged with the best eeo- s iniy and discretion. <! They have thought it aim In the line of their duty to. i ake some inquiry Into the measures now in force, to otect our citizens against the encroachments of the seases which are brought in great abundance from reign lands by immigrants; concerning the spread of ilch. through the city, much apprehension has been itertaine l. For this purpose, they visited the quantine establishment, about six miles la-tow the city lere Is stationed the health officer, and where are also it marine hospitals The plan of operations we found to be as follows: imediately upon arrival at the quarantine station id often before coming to anchor each vessel subject \ examination is hoarded by the health officer The i ssengers who are able are all ordered on deck, and ] tdo to pass singly through a narrow gangway, where ch one is critically examined and all who show any [lis of sickness are separated from the rest The ofer then descends into tile cabin and steerage, and 1 ' lilts out all alio may have attempted concealment j ie hick urn men an romoveu to trie hospital on shore, v d should th<< vessel Ins found in u foul condition. It ' r d tho passengers are detained until thoroughly fu- j tl gated and cleansed, which require* a greater or less j a igth of time. Finally, on their way lip to the city, , ? remaining passenger* are all brought to the wharf I quarantine, and again examined by the health offl- . " r. and a second time the sick are sifted out From 1 v Is double Inspection, if the officer Is capable and thful. It is almost impossible that any sick passengers , '' n escape, and we have the futtest assurances that it ne are brought up to our wharves. What diseases, tl der Providence, may appear among them after reacht their destination horo, It is not for any one to eaee. We have been informed that, in addition to (h< ' ipeetions below, it is the intention of the authorities whom has been entrusted th" duty of receiving the P1 migrants here, when a wharf is obtained at which . y may all ho landed, to Institute another health limitation,so that all who may have sickened since ving quarantine, anil fe'orc coming into the city ' y be discovered, and returned immediately to tho ,rine hospital. This eould complete the chain of iventive measures, and the city would then he as Ne- . re as human means could make it. Hie (Irand Inquest were gratified at the ample ar- wl igements for tlie reception and care of the sick at P' i marine hospital. One feature, which we are inmed is new and particularly u el'nl. was established P.1 the Commissioners of Hinigrstton. under whose ge- ! al care the legislature has recently played the entire tltutlon. The 1'nited States government, with great O erality, have (ranted them the use of two large store- i pb ' ' otwimhh i mm nam LD. Prlot Twt Unto. houses within the inclosure. which arc appropriated a* convalescent hospitals. where every patient it detained after recovery, until his strength >* entirely removed. and all danger of relapse haa disappeared The marine hospital now contain* over seven hundred patient*. the entire espouses of which, aa well aa of the Ward'* island establishment, since the creation of the Kmigr&nt Commission, are defrayed out of the passenger fund, without drawing a cent from the city or State treasury. in the Lunatic Asylum the Grand Jury found no lean than f.auf hundred aud twenty five afflicted children of humanity, suffering under the moat terrible of all deprivations, and, it was with regret observed, less adequately MM for than their situation and the dictates of benevolence require The deficiency, however, appears to tm the inevitable result of want of room to accommodate the number of patients; and measures to supply this want are in progress?at least to some extent. Vet farther enlargement of the premises will, no doubt, become necessary, at a time not very distant.? The large and rapid increase of mental maladies among the class of population whioh supplies claimants for charitable relief, affords a painfully interesting subject of inquiry It may, no doubt, he accounted for. in part ' at least, by the terribly baneful agency of intemperance. stimulated to increased activity by the poisonoua adulteration of liquors, so oominon among the makers and venders of these enemies to the human race With such facilities and means as are at command, the l unatic Asylum appears to be managed with commendable tenderness, attention, and observance of nlcanliness and quiet, so essential to the process of recovery. The Alms House, now entirely removed to Blackwell's Island, presents accommodations amply sufficient for the present number ofits inmates, for whom the Superintendent finds abundant and useful employment, as well in the cultivation of fruits aud garden vegetables, ih 111 graaing ana tilling up the grounds adjacent to the buildings. In the Penitentiary, also on Blaokwell's Island, the lirand Jury found somewhat more than nine hundred prisoner*, about two hundred of whom lire occupant* of the hospitals attached to the institution, suffering chiefly from diseases superinduced by a life of Intemperance, or other vice. The able-bodied males are employed in i(uarrying stone, and other useful labor; but very inadequate provision seems to be made for turning to account the Industry of the women. The Grand fury do not feel themselves qualified to offer any specific suggestions for the remedy of this undoubted evil; but they would solMt for the suh)ect the early attention of the auihorities to whose cognizance it belongs. In other respects the Penitentiary appears to be well regulated. Here, as in all the public institutions visited, a nice regard is paid to cleanliness, commensurate with the facilities enjoyed; but these would be greatly enhanced by the introduction of tbe Croton waterthat richest physical treasure of our city?the practicability and the Immense benefits of tbe measure having been amply demonstrated in the case of the Nurseries Jn Randall's Island To convey the water, by means r>f pipes, to Blackwell's Island, can be no more impossible or difficult than it was found to be in that rasa; md it may almost bo said, much as has been done for the spiritual and temporal welfare ef tbe city's eonricts, that the full measure of humanity is not meted uut to them, so long as they are without an agent of luch priceless benefits as our own unrivallod Croton. On Blackwell's Island, also, is the Small-pox Hospital ?an establishment. In Its present condition, unworthy of the name, and a source of reproach to the humanity, not to say the justice, of our city. The patients suffering under this loathsome and painful disease are erowd?d in wretched apartments, of insufficient dimensions, inadequately protected even from the rain, destitute of proper ventilation, and without means for tbe separation that ought to bo provided for diversities of b*i, of color, and of moral character and conduct. Of necessity there is, under such circumstances, no fair cbanon for the employment of medical skill and care, and there Is great danger that a hot-bed of contagion may be thus perpetuated, to the serious hazard of all who dwell upon the islaud, and wen to our own citizon* themselves. ' With this report of their examinations, the Grand Jury think it not improper to present their respectful hut warm congratulations to the court, and to their fellow-citizens, on the possession, by the city of New York, of institutions so useful, so munificently supported, and ho valuable to the best interests of huma liny. j/\i*ir.n 11.Mirr.11, foreman June 23, 1848.
