The Ultra and Columbus Conventions?.Nomination* of the lluriiburncrs?Martlu Van Buren nigaln a Candidate for the Preside ney< Our telegraphic intelligence, published in another column, is remarkably interesting. It embraces the proceedings of the Barnburners' Convention, held at Utica, with the names of their nominees for the Presidency and the Vice Presidency in opposition to General Cass, General Taylor, General Butler, General Tom Thumb?to say nothing of half a dozen, or more, of others, from the walks of civil life. Also, the proceedings of the Free Soil Convention, held at Columbus, Ohio. It will be seen that the highly respectable inhabitant of Lindenwald, Mar.in Van Buren, has been nominated by the barnburners as their candidate for the Presidency. He has not yet accepted the nomination, but there is very little doubt that he will be prevailed upon to do so, and that he will consent to run, after making a few twaddling remarks about principle,the Wilmot proviso,and some other nonsensical topics?nonsensical when coining from a politician. Their candidate for the Vice j Presidency is Gov. Dodge, of Wisconsin?a man J whose popularity, among the huge paws, at the West and North-West, where the friends of Gen. Cass suppose his main strength lies, is almost unbounded. He, like General Cass, has been Governor of the North-Western territory. He succeeded Gen. Cass after the admission of Michigan, and held it almost to the time of the admission of Wisconsin. He has recently been elected to the United States Senate from that new State. Thus progresses the great revolution of parties, which we predicted some time since. Mr. Van Buren has contributed his share in the good work, although he set out with a different view. His only aim and that of his son John, has been to defeat Gen. Cass, if possible, in the election of 184$, because Gen. Cass and his friends used their influence to prevent the re-nomination of Mr. Van Buren in the Baltimore convention of 1S44. And all this game has been played, and is being carried on still, under the specious pretext of preventing the extension of slavery in the territory recently acquired by the United States from Mexico. It has all been undertaken through love for the negroes that may hereafter be located on the salt lakes of California. This is the pretext, and the Wilmot proviso is the principle, on which the philanthropic Martin Van Buren, with the aid and comfort of his 6on John, ha9 planted himself in opposition te Gen. Cass, as the democratic candidate for the Presidency. The anecdote about the boy and the load of hay explains the business:?" Instead of crying and bellowing," said the passer by, "about spilling your hay, why don't you go to work and re-load it 1" " Dang the hay," said the boy, " I don't care about the hay, b* o-o-o, but that dad is under it." "Dang the Wilmot proviso," says John A'an Buren, "but that dud is under it." Here, then, we have another Presidential candidate in the field: and the work of revolutionizing parties still goes on. The eflect of the proceedings of this convention will be to give the State to General Taylor, and this is precisely what the Van Bnrens wish. This is their method of paying off General Cuss, for the exertions which >e nun ii.s irienus soccessiuny mane on me iwoihird rule, in the convention of 1HH, to throw Mr. Van lluren overboard. As politicians", as well as lovers, think revenge is sweet, this is the method ?>t revenging himself 011 General Cass, which Mr. Van Buren has adopted. One good turn, he thinks, deserves another; and hence Mr. Van Buren's opposition to lilin. < >wiug to these movements, we find that we are obliged to alter our list of candidates for the Presidency and Vice Presidency at the ensuing election. The list, we believe, is now complete; hat we may yet be compelled to alter it again, and put in one or two more:? NAMES OF THE REOURAKRY NOMINATED CANDIDATES. Politici. lbr Proiricrit. tor Vice Pruulmt. Whifc, Each. Taylor. Ra Millard Fillmore, S. V. lasmo Rewu Caaii. Mich. Wm.O. Hat'-r. Ky. Addition J. P. Hale. N. II Riooectsr Kin*. Oslo.

Henry Podge, Wise. Thus far, very well ; but there are some barnburners among the whigs, as well as among the democrats. A portion of this latter party have avowed their determination ol not supporting the Philadelphia nominations?Taylor and Fillmore? and have announced their intention of running candidates of their own. The free soil whigs of Ohio have held a convention in Golumbus, hut ;>ost|>one<i any nominauon km the Presidency nnd Vice Presidency, in opposition to Tnylor nnd Fillmore, till the 9th ot August next. Those in Massachusetts hold their convention in Worcester, on the 28th insi.; and a portion of the disaffected wings in the State ot Pennsylvania talk of holding one at Pittsburgh. Now, whether these conventions will amount to anything or not, we do no' know ; we merely record thein as signs of the times. We intimated, in a former itrticle, that there wns every probability of the barnburners adopting the principle of freedom of the public lands, and to that extent identifying themselves with the national reform party. Such a union of principles has taken place. It will he seen, by our telegraphic intelligence, that, after an exciting debate by the members of the Ttica convention, a resolution of this character was dopted. This may giv e them quite an addition of force; for the national reform parly have been endeavoring for some years past, to prevail ii|?on either the whig or democratic party, to adopt their creed, and thus secure their triumph at some time or other; hut the national rej formers have already candidates of their own ; they may, however, drop *heir men and take up with those of ih? barnburners Thus we go. Paruer are at present in a be.autiully mixed condition The approaching election L - a L a? Witt bs a iri44jvl?r right U?n*r?l Tsyloffrill dir ) ' cb<?r(re th<? rn?ttid of pip*. fleneral will ! folic* suit, anil Mr. Van Buren will fir* his gun J( against both. These nominations of the barnburn- fl era will probably incite the friends of General ? Cass to ni ike nd ilional efforts for electinghim.? c] It will I; a very inlet sting struggle, and we can | s safely say that there is abundance of fun ahead. ^ American Steam Ships.?Mail Contracts.? We learn that the Charleston line of steamers is to K be increased to four, in order to have a semi-weekly communication with that city That line has h been highly successful. We also learn, that the r< owners of 'he Crescent City intend to build ano- ti j ther steuiner, Tike her, to run between this port and New Orleans. ? It must be gratifying to every American to wit- ? ness this success in ocean steam navigation, The p Crescent City can bent the overland mail from one a to three days, and she will, therefore, afford means for the transmission of letters ; and we understand that the owners will take all papers and letters ^ gratuitously to New Orleans. All will be pleased ? to hear this. e It is to be regretted that government should in- r terfere, directly or indirectly, with the success of o nrivnfp pnfpmriap iiq PvhiKit?wl in tVia aKnva ctota. t. ment. It is understood that the assignees of Mr. | Sloo's contract are not able to proceed with that t contract, unless government will make them nn ? advance of twenty-five thousand per month. It would seem, then, that two hundred and ninety ? thousand dollars per annum, or two million nine g hundred thousand dollars gross, is not basis ? enough to onrry them through ; therefore, they t feel obliged to call upon government for eight ? hundred dollars per day for this purpose. t It appears strange that men should obtain a con- * tract front government, giving them some thou- f sand dollars j>er day, for establishing a route now * successfully commenced by another concern, or other parties, without any aid except their energy, I experience and capital; and yet, as has been re- 1 presented, be unable to go on without nid from the ' said government. The public will be most happy J to see this line in successful operation, but accord- , ing to contract. When, however, they acknow- J ledge their inability so to do without further nid ! from government, and ask for an advance of mo- j ney to enable them to build their boats, the ques- < tion then arises, is not this carrying the joke a little j too far I t There are some men with capital in the United j States, who would be most happy to make a con. , tract by which they could be guarantied money sufficient to pay all the expenses, and they have all the profits; and there are many, apparently without capital, who, in addition to such a guarantee, would have no objection, in the first place, to having the money advanced without interest. To be serious, however, as both the original contractor and his assignees have been represented as abundantly able, let them proceed, backed by the two millions nine hundred thousand dollars, but don't let them put their hands into the public treasury in advance. If this, however, must be done, and they insist upon it, then open the door ; and, with the new conditions, submit the whole to public competition. Such a course would save the government more than half a million of dollars. ? I The Naturalization Laws.?We are glad to I perceive that there is some prosjiect of a very serious defect in the existing naturalization laws being remedied, a bill for that purpose having rcI cently been introduced into Congress. The present laws require " a declaration of intention," and a five years' residence 011 the part of au aiicu, lujjcuici wiui uu utuu iu support ine ui?n* I stitution of the United States, before he can become a citizen of this repnblic. If, however, an alien, after declaring his intention to become a citizen, should leave the United States, if only for an hour, or a moment, he must commence dc novo, and re-declare his intention. This, surely, never was contemplated by the framers of the law; yet | this is the interpretation put upon it by high judicia' authority. For instance, if an alien, who resides I in any of the States bordering on the Canadas, de, clare his intention to become a citizen of the United i States, and who has his permanent residence \ in any of such States, should by stress of weather, ! if he be travelling on the lakes, be compelled, or i should voluntarily enter her Majesty's Canadian provinces, and remain there, if only for a moment, he forfeits the right he had acquired by his declaration of intentions, and must commence dc novo the usual proceedings, in order to enable him to be.coine a citizen. The question has been tried, for the purpose of testing it, and this has been the decision. It is to remedy this defect, which is an obvious one, that a bill to amend the naturalization laws has been recently introduced into Congress, and which we hope will be sjieedily passed. Rcw? from Europe. We have been, for the last twenty-four hours, momentarily expecting later news from Europe, by the auxiliary steamship Sarah Sands, which left Liverpool on the 6lh, and the Cunard steamship Britannia, which left on the 10th of June, both of which vessels are now due at this |>ort; the one with intelligence of a later date by three duys than what we have received, and the other with a week later. We have no doubt, that either one or the other of these steamships will arrive to-day or tomorrow. The most important intelligence which we expect by these arrivals is from Ireland. From its tenor, we shall be able to form an opinion of the pruualiic I'uurm; ui rvnus in umi cuuiiuy. Nineteen Days Later from Brazii,.?Two of \ our fast vessels arrived last night from Rio de Ja- 1 neiro?the bark- Hrazileiro, Capt. Williamp, and J the Helen M. Fiedler, Capt. Willis ; the former ' brings intelligence to the 18th, the latter to the j 14th. We return thanks to Cupt. Williams, espe- 1 ciully for the very liberal supply of papers sent us, j and for his attention in forwarding our letters und papers. To Capt. Willis wc are also indebted for like attentions. Our files of tlie Jornal do Commot io are com- ' plete to the 18th. The Chambers had adjourned, and a change of ministry was about to take place. 1 The I. i>. steam frigate (iron) Alleghany, ('apt. ' Hunter, from Norfolk, was attracting much attention at Rio. She was visited by all the officers of | the British, Brazilian, and French vesscls-of-war ( in the harbor. Her officers speak well of her per- , ; formanees nnd speed. I The sloop-of-war Plymouth, Capt. Gedney, nr- i rived at Rio, in a passage of fifty-four days, from ' I Norfolk, and would sail on tin* 20th of May for ' i t'lnna. The Erie, Capt. Watson, sailed for New ' York on the 7tli of May. The frigate Brandywine, Commodore .Storer, was in port when the Bra J zileiro left. The Crank Jfry.?Gknkkai. Sessions.?We i pnblish in this day's paper, thp presentment of the Crand Jury of the Court of Sessions, which embraces a veriety of useful nnd valuable information ' : and suggestions, on the subjects of the violation of i the Sabbath, Sunday drink in in the City Prison, J furious driving on Sundays, and matters of gene* , ral interest to our citizens. This document, also, ( refers to the Alms House Department, the Peni- > tentiary on Uiaekwell* Inland, und will be read J with interest. j Irish Matters?w> give in this day's pHpor, the ( address of the Council of the Irish Confederation to i the people of Ireland, which was issued a day or 1 two alter the conviction and sentence of the patriot Mitcliel.

The cast | as excellent, and each part well performed. The j Ijaracter of Walter Cochrane, sustained by John R. cott. met with the approval of a delighted audience ord Argus, by Mr. Stevens, being his second appear- I nee since his recent severe accident, was ably xus- { lined In faet. Mr. Stevens is a good actor, and an tceedingly useful man In a theatre. The part of lng James 111., by Clarke, was capital. This theatre now becoming very popular, and we are not surprised t this, as the proprietor. Mr. Hamblin, Is strenuous iu is exertions, not only to put forward the most iutef sting pieces, but also in his selection of the best ctors. The next piece was the grand Kastern spec- . icle of Cherry aud Fair Star," in which Mary Taylor. 1 otn in ner acting and Pinging, drew down reiterated I beers. Topaok. by Burke, was in keeping with this j cntloman's high character as a comedian. A very ttraetlvo bill is presented this evening ; Shakspeare's 1 ragedy of " llaiulet." Scott taking the part of tho 1 rinoe. and Mary Taylor that of Ophelia her first i ppearance in that character. The Bowery is bound I o go ahead, as the inclemency of tho weather does not <ssen the attendance there. Niblo's, Astor Place.?The most grotesque exhibiion ever represented in any theatre, is decidedly the Chinese Balabile," danoed. or rather jumped, by the ver pleasing Viennoise Children, and which, though tot so graceful and captivating as tho uPas des Fleurs," r the -Pas Rococo," is nevertheless a very curious specaclo to witness. It was performed again last evening, ogether with "Le pas des Amourettes." and "Le pas longrois," before a crowded house. It seems t* us hat Ntbio has made a private arrangement with the ublic, in order to have bis place filled nightly with the rcttiest galaxy of beauty and fashionable people. As aras this goes, the enterprising manager has plainly ucceeded; and we hope he will continue all this sumaer. to attract many of our citizens, and all the stran:er* who fill New York, during this season, at the iretty bonbonnibe of Astor Place. The vaudeville ompany is also deserving, every successive night, he most discriminating plaudits for the accuracy given o their hlstrlonio performances The bill for this vening consists of the celebrated "Pas des Ainouret?s." the "Polka Paysanne," and the "Chinese Ballet." : rith tho vaudeville of the "Four Sisters." and the J ;reat "Medley overture." embodying the most popular ' rish melodies. Wo may safely bespeak once more u ery large audience. Chatham Theatre.?Notwithstanding the rain )OUTed down in torrents last night, this theatre was veil filled, and the entertainments passed off with great 'rial. The drama of tho "Dunounoer" commenced the terformancos, and was ably sustainod throughout by the 1 itock actors of the Chatham. Hans Hoogfeldt, by Mr. I Parry. was ably sustained, as was also tho part of j Vdolph do llriancturt. by Mr. Pholps; Victor.ne. by : Urs. Jones, was oxcelleut. Next followod various lances and songs, which met with enthusiastic cheers rem the audience. The F.thlopean Harmonists suo eeded, and by their amusing refrains gave a liveliness o the entertainments. The whole concluded with tho lrama of "Sarah the Jewess," the respective cliaracors of which were well performed. Mr. F. S. Chuurau will return from Boston, on Monday next, where le has been very successful, and will perform tho cha acter of Moso on that evening; Mr. Winans. a celebrated comedian, will play tho part of Joe. Barney iVilliams, now considered one of the best rcpresenta.ives of Irish character, appears also in two pieces on hat evening, if this attraction does not draw a full louse, we don't know what will. Castle Garden.?Notwithstanding the copious show r of rain that fell last evening, a numerous and highly -cspectablo audience attended this favorite resort. The irst pieoo was an excellent drama, entitled "Old Hotesty," in which Michael Bradshaw was admirably susuinnrl fiv Mr NiplHnonn aft alftn wan Damp Rradfthav j jy Mr*. Vernon, while Toby Perch was represented to I ' >erfection by the inimitable Holland. The -Musical i Jlio." consisting of a choice selection of songs, arias.

To-night the lively i lurletta of the -Water Witches," is to be produced, 1 i nth appropriate scenery and new costumes, in which | i dr. Holland appears as Joe Smith, a regular waterman, 1 ind coxswain of the Lady of the Lake. The-Operatic i I Jlio" will be repeated. The evening's entertainments ire to conclude with the laughable afterpiece of -'Kami- 1 y Jar*,'' in whieh the duett of "Meet me by moon- , igbt," will be Introduced by Mrs. H. Philips and Mr. i 1 iolman. I i Tin: Stevermarkiiciie Musical Commm.?Not- ! j rithstanding the very unfavorable state of the weather , ast evening, a rather crowded assemblage of the admi- ! ers of this splendid band of musical performers, cou- , isting principally of ladies, were present at their grand 1 i nstrumental concert at the Tabernacle, when several elect and popular pieces were performed, with much , , .astu and execution. The selections were principally I , rom Strauss, Klotow. Halcvy Hziha. Lanner. and Beeihovcu. The ' Melange-Grand Potpourri'' elicited the I ( nost rapturous applause. The performance of this dif- ! I lcult piece sufficiently tested the high abilities of the : >erformers. consisting of nineteen. Tho band is com- ! >oscd partly of brass, partly of string, and partly of , vooden instruments, iu which the principal ones that 1 ire usually employed in bands of these different lescriptions are ali used by the performers. The 10I08 are alternately given eu each of the leading int rumonts, in most of the pieces ; and the performers, . rhetber on the violin, cornetto. clarionette. hautboy, lute, or other instrument, display a degree of taste and inished execution, which show the highest prottcien y. But the admirable manner in which the instruments are made to harmonize?at one time soft and wcet, as iuit uium ueiicnie luui ufn on me pianomrie? , iml again powerfully swelling to the wildest and fullest >itrh that can bo attained on tb? instruments in cou:ert?almost threatening to shake thu very roof of the juii ding?shows the perfect mastery that each perormer has over hii Instrument. The admirers of muilc who were present last evening, enjoyed a rich treat, rbe third concert of the compay will bo given this >velng. at the Tabernacle. Chriitt'i Minstrels.?This being Saturday, it will do borne in mind that Christy's baud of minstrels will five an afternoon, as well as evening concert, comneucing at three o'clotk. for the amusement of faini- 1 les. Mechanics' Hall is an excellent place to bring children to on Saturdays ; and. in the eveniugs. our ;rown up folks can have their turn. Dumbolton's Ethiopian Sekknadehj.?This uoriralied band commence operations on Monday. July 3d. it Westminster Hall. Providence. R. 1.. preparatory to .heir tour through the Eastern States : they will also perform there on the 4th and otli. It is almost needless o say. that of all the companies of Ethiopian Minstrels hat havo figured in this country. Dumbolton's has I seen admitted by ail to possess more sterling abilities i is musicians and vocalists. They have. In Europe, massed the strictest criticism, and been pronounced the ne plut ultra of Sable Harmonists. Uantard's Panorama.?Panorama hall is as much visited as ever, and all who see the panorama which is there exhibited, are unanimous in pronouncing it the greatest work of art of modern times that has been performed by one man. To see it is to sail up the Mississippi. Therefore, for fifty cents you can gee all Lhc scenery, cities, towns and villages on that noble river, which is inuch less, we believe, than the trip can i>e performed for by water. Second Concert ok Maurice Strakojch.?Those who had not the pleasure of hearing this distinguished idanist. at the Tabernacle, will be gratified to learn .hat his next concert comes off at the Apollo Rooms, on rhursday. the 20th. Tho Tabernacle being (.ngaged by the Steyerinarklscho company is tho reason why Lbe above roopis are selected; and furthermore. M. strakosch is of opinion that the piano will sound to much better advantage there than at the Tabernacle. I'll" only objection that can be made is. that the Apollo may he too small, as this renowned performer lias hecon e such a great favorite, that bis style and brilliant execution are every where highly lauded, and 1 consequently his next appearance will be greeted by thousands. Mr. Murdoch has opened the Aroh street theatre, : I'ulladolplua. Dan Marble wax at Detroit, where he took a be no lit ! nn the evening of the 17th loot. Naval.?We notice an interesting correspondence j published recently in some of the papers, elicited upon the occasion of the detachment of Commander Wm. L ; Hudson, from the lirooklyn Navy Yard: and as it ha.already been before the public, we think it quite unnecessary to give it in our paper at this time Captain Hudson has been dotached from his station. in conformity with a regulation of the Navy Department. which limits the time of service of officers on hore duty, to throe years. Cotnmandnr,Ilud*on is an Accomplished and scientific officer, and was one of the masterspirits of the exploring expedition. He leaves litis station with the best wishes of all who have had the pleasure of his acquaintance The corrcspon- i jence alluded to, exhibits in a striking manner the , high estimation in which he is held by the officers con nected with the yard, and the various persons attached | to the station. Interesting to Postmasters.?A circularhnnbcen ! issued from the Auditor's < >ffice to the I'ost Office Department, notifying postmasters that there is no necessity for the employment of agents to secure he increased ,coni|ienflation allowed hy the lute nw.

At a quarter to eight, the number dwindled lown to six.

School Examination.?The primary and male departments of district school No. 10. in the fourth vard. took place yesterday, before the trustees and ho county superintendent The primary department s under the chargo of Mrs. Reynolds, assisted by Misses 3'Oonnor, Mills. Deagan, Dolau. and Walsh. The argest of the children range from the ages of eight to .welve years ; while there are about four hundred, the ildest of whom Is scarcely si* yours old. 'l ney were landsoraoly arranged through the room forexamlnaion. the largor ones being plncod nearest the door, vhile the great mass of the little ones were placed in he rear end of the room, upon steps, ono above the >ther. to the number of about twenty. The whole lumber of scholars in this department, who presented hewselvus for examination, amounted to five hundred ind fifty-four. They recited their lessons with renarkable accuracy, and the little creatures seemed lappy iu being permitted to show the attention they lad paid their studies. They sang several little songs, idapted to their youth ; and by their proper obse? vince of the regulations of the school, won the smiling ipprnbation of all present. There were quite i number of ladies and gentlemen present, vho expressed great satisfaction with the gen ral conduct of the school. There was one little ellow who particularly attracted the attention of hose present. From the great similarity of fea.ures. lie bears the name of Yankee Sullivan, ind the name is apropoi. for a more perfect likeness if that renowned individual could not be marked by painter's hand ; and his manner is bold and free, and tias as much of the "care for nobody" look about him is is necessary.

In oonsequenco of the examination of the higher chool commencing at half past 11 o'clock, the primary examination was necessarily cut short, and the gentlemen and ladies present went to the room of the male lepartmunt. of which Mr. St. Juhn is principal, aslisted by Messrs. Halpin, Lavelle and Nichols, and Miss Tyson. In this department, the higher branches ire taught, and most successfully too. on the moral suasion system. In this department, as in the other. Lhere was a strict observance of the rules of order. The examinations in arithmetic and astronomy were most striking, each scholar seeming to have a perfect knowledge of the principles of the studies, and showing an iutuitiveness of mind generally, which is seldom met with in schools of the first class. The explanations in astronomy wero excellent, as were also those in algebra. There is one peculiarity in this school, which has a lastinir effect unon the minds of the scho law. They arc required to repeat the words distinctly, After the teacher, thereby atlordi ng them a flue opportunity to become perfect in their pronuuciation. There seems, too. to be a spirit of generous rivalry irnoug them, each endeavoring to outstrip the other in tits studies, which makes the task for the teachers very [ileasanl. The reading exercises of this department <hould not pass unnoticed. They are. generally, remarkably correct in the enunciations of the sounds of <yllables. and giving the proper emphasis and cadence. :loarly show the powers of e'ocutlon strongly developed. This is said to be the most perfect school, in the arithmetical branches, in the city ; and it is probable that statement is true, for no class of soholars could bo more perfect than they aro. The manner in which the department Is conducted, reflects great credit upon the character of Mr. St. John, aud his Assistants : and a viait to the school will amply repay ; iny one wno takes pleasure, or feels the least interest. ! iu education. A Stravoe Bird at the Park Fouktaiw.?There was quite an excitement at the Park fountain yesterday afternoon, in consequence of the appearance of a strange looking bird, swimming about in the basin There were more than a thousand persons who pressed lo see it, not one of whom could tell what it was. though all could think it belonged to the crane species. The beak, head and neck were similar to that of fhe cruuo. though the body was perfectly black, and shaped very like the common crow. The legs were short, and the feet webbed It swam with the whole body under water, only the head and a portion of the neck being visible; and seemed to like that place where the greatest body of water fell from the fountain, ihough it would frequently swim around the edgo of the basin. The keeper of the fountain went near the basin, and the strange bird swam up to him. and suffered itself to be lifted out of the water, and put upon the land. Its movements on the land were very awk- ! ward, scarcely knowing how to walk, the water evi- | dently being its proper home. The name of the bird as given by Wilson, is Plolut Vailianlii, or black bel- ! lied Darter, and is a bird of India. Africa and the , South seas Most ornithologists class it among the species of the Pellcanic. though it bears very little re- j semblance, having no pouch as the pelican. Its | plumage was black, very glossy, and very soft and i smooth interspersed with dark grey spots from the baok part of the head, down the back to the tall, which was slightly tipped with a dirty white color. The head, beak, and neck about the same size and length, as the common bittern. It was subsequently ascertained that it had been thrown into the basin by two sailors, who doubtless became tired of their curiosity, and wished to pnt it in such a place as that every one would have an opportunity of seeing it. It is probably the only living one on this continent, and la certainly one of the natural curiosities of the old world. Paradf. of the I-ibf.mf.n ?The members of Mono Co. No. 19, of thin city, paraded yesterday as an escort to a new company from Jersey City, who hare had completed in this city, a handsome hose carriage, and the Arreneoh " engino company of that city. The machines were handsomely decorated with flowers, and the affair went off in good style. They had a superior band of music, and paraded through I he principal streets of the city, twice passing our otflce in their route. They were a boJy of line looking men. and the apparatus gave evidence of the case which is taken of it. Sf.rioc* Affair in Brooklyn?Quito a serious affair occurred near the Long Island Railroud depot yesterday nfrernoon. About one o'clock, two men in the train refused to pay their fare, which led to nn altercation between them and the conductor, Mr. Edward H. Marvin. After a few words, one of the men struck the conductor a blow, which k< ocked him off the car. Hefelluuder the train, which passed over, and instantly killed him. Political Intelligence.

The Chicago Democrat of the 0th inst., publishes the following information:? ' We are told by perron* arriving by canal, that theri is a great amount of freight at Peru and La *alh?. waiting an opportunity to ho shipped for Chicago?and that the delay is not so much occasion'd by the want of boats, as from the incapacity of the canal below Ottawa to float a full loaded one. The aqueduct acrors the Vermillion river is also said to be a ml-take. and is at least one foot above the proper level. \Ve are also told that individuals have commenced rc-shipping their goods by way of the Ohio river and canal for the east, which were originally destiued by the Illinois and Miehican Canal, and through the lakes. There Is wrong somewhere, and it should be remedied promptly While on the subject, we may as well pay that the miserable caricature of a steam tug continues to be the laughing stock of every traveller, and is one of tho great mistakes which those in authority arc accountable for to the public.
