Tilt H'li mot Pro vino?.The Proponed Compromise. Oor renders are aware of the fact that the Senate of the United States have agreed to appoint a committee of eight persons, to ascertain, by a compari. son of views and an interchange of sentiments^ whether it is possible to elfect a compromise, on the question of slavery, in the territories recently added to the United States by the treaty of peace with Mexico. Four of this committee are members from the North, ami four from the South. In commenting upon this question of the Wilmot proviso, we have invariably stated that no compromise that can be agreed to by Congress, will be received with satisfaction by Mr. VanBuren, and his associates, at the North. The ex-Presi* i dent has mounted his hobby, not for the sake o philanthropy, or for regard to the colored races on the borders of the salt lakes of Calilornia, but with the view of again reaching power and emo. lumrnt, be the sacrifices what they may. The integrity of this glorious confederacy is as nothing in his eyes, provided he can accomplish his own .w- c i . ?r teuton j?ui|?uace?uic inai unu iuuoi jii uiuiuriu ui which is the defeat of General Cuss, in revenge for Mr. Van Buren's rejection by the Baltimore Convention of lt<44, and, ultimately, his own elevation to the Presidency, under the cry of anti-sluvery. If he can accomplish these he will do so. let the consequences be what they may, and he and his associates will not abate one whit of their efforts, even if the Senate committee and the two houses of Congress shall agree on a compromise. We have always given it as our opinion, that in ?ase such a compromise should be agreed upon, the cry would be repeal, and circumstances of recent occurrence have showu its correctness. The Evening Post?the organ of Mr. Van Buren and the new abolition party in this city?uses the following language, in anticipation of the committee agreeing upon a compromise:? " The moment Northern representatives compromise their honor, and Southern men their sense of justice, by an act extending slavery, there will bo presented an additional act. in both bouses of Congress, "to reestablish freedom.'' which shall declare in substaune. that there shall be no further increaso of slavery in anytfthe territories of the United States after the passage of that art. and the cry of repeal of the one aided Bright compromise.''will lie heard among the hills and valleys of the North, and over the prairies of the West, until the act to re-establish freedom ill the territory is coined." Thi6 is precisely what we imputed to the new pjriy, and is just what we exjiected. No compromise will suit them ; but the Union itself is to be 1 shaken to its foundations, if necessary, in order that Mr. Vi-n Buren and bis party may not reap the consequences of having taken a false step in Here, tlieD, we have conclusive evidence of the avimut which pervades the barnburning section . of the democracy. Notwithstanding that it is not in the natuie of things, in a wide and extonded c< n/ederacy like ours, for any measure affecting the interests < f the North and the South, to pass Without a compromise of some kind or other, Mr. Van Buren's organ, in anticipation of such a compromise being effected, denounces it, and threatens to raise the flag of repeal, which they will, no doubt, carry into effect in the Presidential election of IS^. ft has always been the case that the Nortli and the South have been opposed to each other on the question of slavery ; but, admitting the South, as members of this confederacy, to have rights as well as the Noith, we cannot conceive the ju-tice of admitting those of 011c section, and denying those af the other, to the fullest extent. In such state of things, wisdom and common sense dictate coinpromifit?a mutual surtendcrof part, by the North and the South, as the best means of avoiding trouble, and of settling the vexed ques- 1 tion. But the ultras of the North say ' 110 '?not another foot, not another inch, of slave territory; and if any such compromise be agreed upon, we shall ruise the cry of repeal, and, peri?li we, or polish the Union, we shall continue to rally under 1 it." It is a fortunate thing for the United States, that we have among our population a great many men who are gifted with common sense?men of j miuiiu juu^mrm ;;nu jjuiiiuiimu, wnu cnir ttsmucii ' for the w elfare of the colored races as any of the I , political deeluimers of (lie day. These are the 1 ? men on whom the responsibility of meeting this ' question will devolve; and that they will ultimately be successful, we do not lor a moment doubt. Fot;kierism.?It r- amusing to see the windirg J j and tortuous course which Fourierism adopts in 1 endeavoring to accomplish its purpose?that of pro- j moting the cause of philanthropy, as it is orrone- 1 ously colled. Thus, in France, the Fourierites, ' with the cry of philanthropy on their lips, array , i the poor against the rich, and seek to elevate the working man above all other grud- s of society, us if capital, intelligence or education have no rights. This sjiecics of them may be termed the red Fourientes; but although they difler in color from their associates in the Fnited .States, they are identically the same, and advocate precisely the same disorganizing principles. The Fouricntes I here, through their organ, the Tribunr, advocate not only socialism, communism and Fourieriim, but hIso abolitionism, and inuy be termed the black Founerites, although they have aB much claim to the red button as those of J'uris; for gore i has followed the preuching of their doctrines in the !Tnitrd States, as well as it has done in France. There niv<r would have been any anti-rent out- , rages in tins State, hut for the preachings of the < Trihumii ami although the lenders and instigators may prcuch p< ace, as the philosopher of the Tri- ' | bum* elernaiiy do< s, yet the doctrines which they < instil into their disciples, incapacitate them from seeking what they conceive to he their rights, in any oiL? r manner ih .n by blood. Such has been ' the case in this country, and such has been the j case in Frsnra. The same results followed the ? same preachings in both countries. , J ?? ? England and Cuba.?One of our Loudon correspondents lias given some insight into the startling purposes ol the British government, as connected with the present quarrel between Spain and England, and the longing* of the latter power after taking iiosseshion of the Island of Cuba. According to this information, it appears that Lord l'alnieretoii has been very anxious to pick a quarrel with Spnin, for the purpose of making a war with that country, the pretext for seizin' upon the Isle oi Cuba, and taking possession ot that b-aut: ful territory before the power of the United Stutes may be wttkened tip to the purposes entertained in London. The recent conduct of the Br.ti-sli government towards Spain would seem to justify strong suspicions of such a purpose in the Palmerston ministry. Great fear and anxiety were created in England during the Mexican war, that the United States, after the absorption of ull Mexico, would turn its attention towards Cuba; would take it in hand, and wrest it fi^tn the pow er of Spain. That a resolution of thiskind has been taken on the part of England, appear* to be confirmed by the undoubted fuct that the white inhabitants of the island look with horror upon the possible cause of annexation with the British empire, and desire, above all tliiags, to for.n a connexion with the United States, from the natural motive of a desire to preserve their slave property from destruction. If England should take possession of Cuba, there would be no gua rantee against the instant abolition of slavery, and the reduction of this rich lslund to the miserable level of the French and British West Indies. In connexion with this important subject, we have heard it hinted that the movement of Mr. Van Buren, beginning with the Wilmot proviso, will not end until a general abolition party is organized in the North, in conjunction with the same political purpose of abolition in England, and probably with the understanding of the British government.? Every body knows that the ubolition question in this country may be agitated until it comes to the point of producing a division of the Union. It the Union should be divided into the two divisions of slave and free, no one cau predict what state of things may wise with Canada and the other free States, in conjunction with the intrigues and purposes of the British power. Certainly, in this country, there is a new phusis of public affairs, which begins to be visible, and the movements of politics, both in England und at home, ought to be watched with a great deal of attention and solicitude. Paris and toe Different Parties in Conflict WITH THE RePURLIC?A FAITHFUL PoRTRAriTTRE of Red Republicanism.?The following sketch of "Red Republicanism," by Victor Hugo, is so graphic and true, and so peculiarly suitable at the present moment, that we think it worth while to present it to our readers. It will be understood that " Red Rt]>ublicanitm" signifies the ultras of all kinds, who have just been put down in Paris by Cavaignac, viz.: socialists, Fourierites, and all the other theorists who seek to destroy all order and subordination in society, and to place power and wealth in the hands of the low, the vile, the brutal, the ignorant, the vulgar, the debased, the drunken, the abandoned, the idle, and the. vicious. Victor Hugo thus eloquently speaks:? 1 wo sorts of republics are possible. One of tbern will put down t e tricoloied flag, and will hoist the red flag. It will coin the great column on the Place Vendome into pennies. It will Unock down the statue of Napoleon, and set np that of Robespierre or Mirabeau in its stead. It will put an end to the Institute, to the Polytechnic School, and to the Legion of II >nor. To the noble motto of " Liberty, Eyality and Fraternity it will add the horrible alternative, '-or Death." It vi ill make Franco bankrupt. It will ruin th? rich without enriching the poor. It will annihilate credit, I which is the lortune of all. and put an end to labor, | which ie the bread of all. It will abolish property. It , will abolhb lnuiilies. It will parade about the streets of the city with men's beads upon pikes. It will fill the prisons on mere suspicions, and then make a ! general gaol delivery by indiscriminite massacro. It*, will set Kurope in flames, and reduce civilizttion to | ashes It will make France the land of blood aud : darkness. It will butchtr liberty stifle the arts, suppress free thought, abjure (Jod, and set in motion th -n tso fatal instruments which go hand in hand together ?the guillotine and bank note p'?'ea ! Victor Hugo then goes on to give a beautiful description of the Republic of Order, and concludes by saying? Of these two republics, the one is clvllliation?the other is terror. 1 am ready to lay down my life in . support cf the one. and to lose it. if need be, In fighting against the other. ( That such sentiment*, so eloquently uttered, i < must have had their efleet in animating the friends ' r>f order, in the late struggle, to fight against the ' fearful insurrection of the red flag, no one can lor I a moment entertain a doubt. It is pleasing to see the spirit of order and peace thus animating the majority of the French people, and to behold terrorism, Fourierism, murder, rapine,and barbarity, j signally crushed and defeated, as they have been. | Ignorance ?On one of the flags taken from the Fourierite insurgents of Paris was the inscription, " Vairif/ucur, It pillage ! Vainciu, iincendie ! " That is, " If we nre conquerors, we will plunder the city; but if wp are conquered, we will burn it down." A sapient contemporary ot this day renders the above as follows:?"To the victorious, pillage?to the vanquished, conflagration." Later from Porto Cabeu.o.?We learn from Cspt. Janssen, of the Danish brig Otto, arrived here on Saturday, in 14 days from Porto Cabello, that ihree out of four of the government fleet had arrived from Maracaibo on the 25th June. Tuey stated that they had had a battle at Maracaibo with Gen. Paez's flet t, consisting of eleven sail; that I'aez'e lorce being much superior, the government vessels were obliged to in,ike their escdpc. <>ne of their vessels being n dull sailer, was captured?not, however, until she was run on shore, and the crew made their escape. No news from the army. No papers. The Boston Account of the Leopard Hunt.? A story loses nothing by repetition, as may be seen frcm the account of the late leopard hunt, up town, which story having reached Boston, is thus given in the journals of that city, under a heading to match the article :? " We learn that two lions and two leopards broke 1 loon yesterday from the premises of Corporal Thouip- 1 , son. I'.'td street.

Astok Place.?Last evening this highly farhlonahlc theatre was erannni vith Its numerous pall one and supporters. The carpi it ialltl eileited the most rapfirtus appliii-e in the new rouiic ballet fMtomlme, product d under the direction of Mr. Schmidt, fgktitlcd ' Legardore* ; or. the t'orn Thraahe a:" in bMMi the tricks, tran-formations, dances and ineidente,vHBe ndmirahly given, aud kept the audience couvuhtd with laughter throughout the entertainment M'lle Adelaide, an La belie Coquollcot, was vehemently applauded, and M. Schmidt, as Petit Jeau, displaced hie usually eziraordiuary tal-ut.. The entertainments of the evening passed off with eclat. The numt roup admirers of the gitt*d Miss Rose Telb n will le gratified to learn that she will appear on to-morrow evening in the cuaracter of Jane Chttterly in the " Widow's Victim." in which Me-srs. Seftou and Dawfou will also appear. The celebrated Monr. I.aborde, first tenor of the Grand Opera, Turls, and Bru-seN, and M'lle. Labcrde, prima donna of the Italian Opera, Parts, will also appear in a grand C >neert Dram itu|uu. 1 he bill lor the evening will be found highly attractive Chatham Theatre.? The production at this hoaee of the famous domestic drama of tho Golden Farmer last evening, was the means of attracting an immense audience, as the piece was ca?t in a most admirable manner Chanfrau took the part of the " Golden Farmer." Wiuans that of Jemmy Twitcher?the iinmoriul Jemmy, whose >- Vel vot ov it?" Is so famll:ar to all New Yorkers. Miss Mestayer perf rni'd the part of Kli/.ubeth aud the rest of the parts were filled in gt od style by the members of the company It is now some years, we ladieve, since ibis favorite drama has been played in N*w York. We remember well what a ri.n it had when first produced at the little Franklin Theatre, not far, by the by. from where the Chatham now stands. Age seems to have improved it, for Chanfrau's Farmer and Winans's Jemmy were as interesting as any that have ever been pie-ented to the public. \> iuuns is a most ajiuiiabi" low comedian, an 1 has a fine | rospect before liim of rising to much eminence in his profession. The performance of Miss Mestayer was most interesting indeed. This young lady doel everything well The Glance at Now York" an I the drama of the ' Wandering Boys.' in wh cb the little Misses Denin perform so prettily, concluded tho evening's entertainments The theatre will continue open a few nights more next week, we understand, and tomorrow evening a fine hill will bo presented, for which we refer to the advertisement. Castle Oaukks.?This beautiful summer evening'i resort, the most delightful place in the world for spending a midsummer's night, amid dreams of fairy delight was opened last night for the benefit of poor Chubbee wc vuircim cuiei, wnupiiiysso sweetly upon tne Uute, We confess we felt somewhat hurt and indignant to find his humble merits no^better appreciated, and the night of his hop* sand benefits less clouded with disappointment. There is u singular lack of taste and kindness in the New York fa-hionablo world, or else Cur tie Garden would be more visited, and poor Chubbee would have had a better benefit. Tho otb?r performers last evening did their best for the humble, simple, but talented and skilful Indian; their exertions d d them great credit. We can only add that there is not a place in New York to equal Ca-tle Garden in the beauties of nature aud scenery. the freshness and coolness of its area, and also there is none that surpass it in the variety, excellence, aud skilful performance of the various theatrical entertainments. There will he a grand concert of sacrud music this evening, and, as the weather is so fair, the garden will likely be crowded, as much to inhale the fresh air as to hear the music. Bi ntns't Tiikatbs:.?This central place of amu ement, which has been thoroughly renovated and improved, was well filled last evening, to see, for tho last time, the fascinating, charming Danseuse-' Viennolses, in their beautiful figures aud chaste movements. It was exceedingly delightful to hear these bewitching children sing twelve popular and national airs, which wcjo re ndered so swei tly that the enanlmous cheers of the uudience followed the execution of each soug The boileita of "Muidens litwaie" followed, in which Miss Chi pmari. as Hosalie. the pretty French girl, both in her i-mging aud acting, evidenced dramatic qualities of astipirioi character. The Dan?cuses Viennolses were g'bctful Mid chaste in the Tariotis figures of the grand divertise ment, L? s SariTages et le Mlrroir." Next succeeded the iarce of "BauibooKliDg." iu which Miss t 1.111 ni?>. on J Mr Crisp displayed every feature of ster1 ng ci 11.ic ability Drougbam, as Paddy Hyan, in the fai ce of "Jr'sli Help."' was excellent, and the always phasing, never to be forgotten Viennoiso Children Mound up tbe amusements, and were cheered from mi.v dopaitmeu' of the h >use Mr. Burton, aud the eilebrated John Dunn, otherwise '-That Ka-cal Jack,'' will sp| i ar on Monday evening, with other attractions, nh.ch. no doubt, will draw a full house. Ciiaistv*i Mi."htBin have concluded another week of triumphawt performances, and the de-ire to h-ar them is still so strong that they have been induced to remain a few days long, r. aud accordi ngly will p irform eviry evening during the coming week. They will give th,ir best programmes ov<ry night. Marine Afl'nlr*.

Still greater deeds are exp< rted of the i.uio) a. under ( ant Loti's guidance, and his numerous fr ends licrp w ill rejoice o liud him tl.e first to pass from England to America in less than tin days. It is now prs tfy well st-tlb d that Boston ha* two days' ndvantnge over New York in the panfi.ges of vessels from England; and the 100 miles distil nro betv een us and Gotham is annihilated by the n sgnctie tclcgiaph. in regaid to transmirsion of news. 11 New York must have a monopoly ol the Canton trade. Boston cannot be dcpiirtd of a share in i he Liverpool steam navigation So well satisfied are the owne re and ce>rnmanele rs of the f'nnard line, that Uostein i* preferable. tliat. nothing reiuld have induce-el a el vblou of lieelf their ships to New Voi k but a <J?*nire? to avoid competition from the* fire at Western and Great Britain for moil rei vice. Now tliat obstacle*!* removed, the'return here ie more likely to liapprn than a withdrawal of the lire fiom Bo-ton as hoped and boaated of by tome New Vork journals.'' The above we take Irom the 11a-, ton Timelier, the truth of which we will ne.t question; at all events, our neighbors ure welcouio to the very gr-at ple-a-eure they appear to enjoy from thee pm cess of an oeiterprise the y have little or nothing to do with. We ail know how far they haee contributed to the advancement of ocean steam navigation, and how mueii modest credit they hate taken to the msulvns in the y, cent improvem< nte in ships built and owned nearly threie thousand mile s from Bo.-teu. It Is raid $4oO 000 have beeu expended in the construction of each of these vessols, not one fartbii.gof which was cemtrihuted or spent for the j urpcise e ither in |ioston or New York; and yet, the people- of that town is pe-ate-dly claim the whole line as their role and rightful prope rty; and in their patriotio de sire s to snstain these steame rs, they are willing to 'aerlfice the most crsditablo and costly productions of Aine l inen ingenuity.

Scarce hud the ediet gone forth, before the aspiring youth, iu ever; part of the'city, armed themselves with bludgeons for the contest, and since the war comui need there have t een troublous times among the dogs. In tho*e parts of the olty whero they were so numerous, scarce one can now be found, those which were fortnnate enough to escape having songbt quarters beyond (he hounds of the disputed territory. There are several regiments of these dog destroyers who patrol the streets by day^ and several others who patrol by night, and it Is almost impossible for a dog lo escape them, for he can rnn but a short distance beiore bis retreat is cut off by another squad, equally anxious to capture him. Thoie who have heretofore bad the business in ha nd, will now be obliged to seek other employment; fur when they start on their morning tour i the victims which were at large the nlghc before have fallen under the perseverance of the youthful volunteers. On Friday night, one of the most formidable of these bands, composed of ten lads, succeeded iu killing nine dogs iu ubout two hours, and more than a dosen escaped from them because of the'r want of knowledge in the badness, being raw recruits, having just entered the service. A gentleman passing up Fourth aveuue was very rauoh alarmed about half past twelve o'clock yesterday morning, to discover a dog coming immediately towards him at foil speed, and ran for life, assured in his own mind that it was a case of hydrophobia. Having obtained a safe position, be had the satisfaction tosee the animal pass down the avenue until be lost sight of him. Ciolng:* till farther up the avenue, he discovered at the corner of thirty-first street this new band, and there seemed to be some dispute among thcinbccau3e of one of them not knowing how to strike a dog, as they said," to fetch him." They had nine laying before them, and the ono which had just made such haste down the fl.vp.niiA ha<l f?lt thA wniohfc of nn? nf thi<iv? i?uahA? and was getting out of the way. One of the gang, who seemed to be captain of the pa rty, said to another of them, '-Tim, you don't know, how to strike a dog

to fetch him. Kf you'd struck him right, we'd had four shillin' a piece; but now the money's got to be divided, and I don't know bow the devil you're going to do It.'' The fellow addressed expressed grcut sorrow at having missed his mark, and vowed must earnestly that he would strike the next one across the " line." and break the thing's back After considerable consultation, they determined that they would press on until they should find another, and then they ooutd divide the money right. There ure many who resort to any means to destroy them. 1 he first day alter the declaration of war had been proclaimed, two lads called at a butcher's shop, in the upper part of the city, and purchased a halfSouud of beef. They then prooceded to the slaughterouse of the same buthcber, where a very tiue dog was kept to guard the place, and after recounoitering the premises, discovered a place where the dog could get out of the yard They then set to work to deooy him into the street, by throwing him small pieces of the m?at. and eventually got him. by kind words and a little feeding; to approach them, when one of them let fly with his bludgeon,,bringing the riotim to the grouud, I and continued hammering at him until he wits quite dead. Thus did the butcher kill his dog with his own I meat. | The more juveniles of the patriotic lads of the olty have also enlisted in the war; i ut have not become as yet v?ry expert in the work of death. A day or two since, two of them stepped in front of a house in William street, where dog.-, of difTereut kinds arc kept for sale, nmong which arc some beautiful ones of the poodle breed. One of them was in the hall of the house, and the little fellows immediately set to work to get him cnt, and succeeded in getting lilm upon the sidewalk, when one of them said to thu other, (Jive it to him, 1 Mickey!" and be was just about striking, when a gen| tleman stepped up. look the dug and put it in the I house, thereby frustrating the design of tho youthful I kills rs. I Since the commencement, the war has waged with unabatid fury and the result of two days' work has destroyed two hundred and thirty dogs. The work is still going on every hour adding new volunteers to the service; and some of ihein are as ferocious as lions, having taken their first lesson in hunting theescap d tiger and leopard, which were at large in the city within the past week, their determined energy bav.ng bet u sufficient, hud they encountered one of these unicials. to contest eveiy inch of ground rather thau have failed of their purpose.

Public Wok*house.?Alderman Crolius recently placed before the branch of the Common Council of which be is a member, an important communisution on the subject and propriety of establishing a suitable I workhouse for the employment of able-bodied pan I ere. In rolling forth not only the advantage! that would ariiie from the establishment of a workbou*e, but that it is imperatively demanded, he sayi "The rapid growth of this city, And its geographical position making it the great connecting link between the old world and the new?the point d'appui of the emigrating masses, winch arc travelling westward, and also the reicrvoir for the icum of the cast-olf population of Kurope?crowds our prisons with vagrants and our alms houses with paupers, many of whom prefer the comforts and the leisure of even our criminal establishments to the cea-cless unrequited toil of liberty, und gladly enter our prisons, as I hey at the saine tiuio aflord them a home and indulge their appetitu for ease i,ud idleness.

Who Tasks Cask or the Wounded Vouun teee ? ?There has been, during the past week, every respect which a grateful people can bestow paid to the remains of thegalla.tt soldiers who lull on thu battle-fields of Mexico All this was right; but there are some who were maimed in the glorious rletoiles achieved on that soil, who need help und sueeor. who are perfectly unable to provide for thimia-lv, g One of these, u young man uained Garett Barry, presented himsoif yesterday at the lltruld office. He had nobly fought for his country at the memorable battle of Cliurubaseo, where he received a wound In the leg from a spent escopette bail, and at the storming of Chapultepeo lost the use of his left arm by a cannon b&ll,whloh< passed between his arm and aid**, breaking several of hia ribs and entirely paralyz-ng the left arm. In that condition he was discharged, and his name placed upon the pension roll, which pension is payable semi-aunually, and| isj insufficient to provide for his wants. It would be iu*gna?imous If the charity of those who deal in pomp and splendor over the dead would look aside upon thu liting, and let the benign dews of their charity fall upon suoh a oaso as this. It is a black stain upon the character of the country that the maimed soldier should be left to auffer, after he has sacrificed so much in tnat country's oause. Ha will probably receive a medal for hie valor. That is right; but he nerds more. Ho requires something in his infirmity, to sustain life and shelter him from the elements. The dead aie buried Now let the living be thought of and administered unto. A Tana Account ok thk Lkopaho Hunt.?Many accounts of the leopard hunt, in the 14th ward, havo been published in the papers of this oity, but none of them were correct. The following is a true version of the scene, us told by ouu who was present. At about eleven o'clock on Wednesday night, Mr. Haines, who resides in Seventeenth street, near the Fifth avenue, wus sitting in bis room readiug, when one of his servants ran down stairs, and told him there was some one on the roof of the house trying to get in. He immediately weut up stairs and put his ear near the trap door. wh-n he heard a sound like some one breathing heavily, and went down stairs, to the street, and called for the watch, when Mr. Mott, one of the policemen of the ward, answered his call. He related to him his suspicions, aud Mr. Mott called another policeman, whom he stationed at the door outside, while he and Mr H. went to the top of the house. Mr. H. taking his umbrella iu his hand. Having reached tLe top of the house, they looked about on the roof, but could find nothing. Tue new house adjoining, belonging to Mr. li., was ab ut five feet higher than the oue he occopied, and he placed his umbrella against the wall und climbed to tlie roof, followed by Mr. Mott, and they proccoded to the further end of the bloek, examining behind every cliiinnuy. While they were at the further end the leopard crept irom his hiding place in the attic story of the new building, and seeing the servant woman at the trap door of the house in which Mr. JL resided, gave a growl und sprang towards her. hlie discovered him in time, and shut down tha door, catching the fernle of the umbrella under it, so that it would net close perfeotly tight, the animal growling and scratching, trying to get In. The two gentlemen on the other buildings finding no thing, returned to the edge of the reof adjoining the house whero thepeopard was, when Mr. Mott exclaimed, "the tiger having before heard that a tiger was loose in the neighborhood. The infuriated animal discovered them, and sprang upon the roof after them. . They run from it, andturniug suddenly round a chimney, returned and jumped dow n to the trap door, which Mr. H. was enabled to get his hand under, in consequence of the ferule of the umbrella having been caught under it, raised it up, and both succeeded in getting in. immediately after which the leopard waff upon' it. They then made the place secure, and went in search of more force, whluh was soon obtained The keeper of the animal also came, but wonld not approach it. Th-y again weut to the top of the house, seventeen iu uumber, armed with guns, swords, ami pistols, but it had again disappeared. After considerable search, however, they discovered it crouched in one corner of the attic, and one of the mm fired at it, but without effect. Becoming frightened, it ran to th* cellar, when it was coufiued to that part alone, and at six o clock in the mrrning was shot by Mr. Mott, the most diligent search being made during the wholo t me, to discover where it was It had had nothing to eat during the day previous, and was furious from hunger. The oiroumstance of the nmbrella having been caught in the trap door, was all that saved the life of one or both of them, aud was one of tho mo-t fortunate incidents connected with the wholo perilous affair. Iterant the Sidewai.es?The sidewalks in varioua street* of the city are in a most disgraceful state : even some portions of the Bowery, Grand street, ana other great public thorough tares, are so much ont of repair, that the limbs, if not the lire*, of pedestrians are nightly placed in jeopardy. The sidewalk aro iod the Park in also in a shocking condition ; and if any serious comequences should result therefrom, there ,* can be no question hot heavy damages eould be recovered. Will the Street Commissioner give the sub* ject his early attention, not only as regards thd side* walks iu Trout of public buiidfug- and places,*b?t likewise private property, believing that he has full power to act in ail such cases? In alluding to this subject we cannot refrain expressing osir surprise.that the owners of property in streets where therb 1s the least chance of doing business, do uat ta*ks good care to keep the sidewalks in front of their premises lit the best possible order; for it is certainly to their interest to do so, inasi?uch as it must be conceded that pedestrians, whether passing through a street to or from their daily avogftions, on business, pleasure, or for the purpose of ^ making pifrckase", invariably seek that side of tly street oti which tira sidewalk is in the best condition ; as would soon be clearly demonstrated should the owners of property on the ea-u or shilling side of Broadway put down a fine, smooth sidewalk; while those on the west, or four shillings side, should allow the other to get much out of repair. Numerous instances of tbis kind could be pointed out; but we trust that sufficient has been said to effect some good.
