The captain immediately hurried to tho scene of action with a posse of policemen, and just as they were forming a ring for the pugilists, the captain arrived on tho ground, and olf they started in all directions; and thus the fancy were debarred from one of their glorious amusements. Charge of Fulsr Pretences.?A man by the name of "William A Rocs was arrested, yesterday, on a warrant iaaned by Justice Lothrop, wherein he stands charged with obtaining four bales of gunny bags, valued a $160, under the following circumstances:?Mr. Ross it appears, has been doing business within the last two or three months under the tirm of Wm.

Upon giving the alarm rap. assistance came from the 6th ward station house, headed by Capt. Magnus. The house was immediately surrounded, and the inmates aroused. Upon effecting an entrance, a scrutinizing and vigilant search was commenced The lady occupants became very much alarmed. and one in particular, made some very energetio remarks upon the carelessness of the servant girl having left the silver plate, bse.. in the basement. By this time the whole neighborhood were on the qui rive, and a general search commenced I for the burglar. Several of the police were pcrohed on the fences and the houses in the rear, for the purpose of cutting off the retreat of the burglar, in case he should make an attempt to escape that way. By this time the party had searched the entire house, with the exception of the basement, upon reaching which, they effected an entrance by bursting open the door, and immediately seized tiie burglar who was endeavoring to make his escape from the window, after havin, demolished some 20 or 30 squares of glass. Upon capture and examination, this desperate burglar, proved to be a large Newfoundland dog, belonging to a friend of the family, who was staying, for the night, at the house, and who placed the dog in tho basement for safe keep Ing The Weekly Herald for Kit rope.

Tho third annual report of the Connecticut River Railroad Company, gives a very flattering account of the operations of the road during the past year, and the present position of the affairs of the oompany. Its financial condition and prospects are exceedingly favorable. Since the last report was made, two dividends have been declared and paid from the net earningsone of three and one of four per cent. Tho receipts of the past two years have been as annexed Connecticut River Railroad. Total receipts for the year 1847 ?128,061 Total reoeiptsfor the yearending June 1,1848. . 141,083 The receipts of the company for the first five month* in each of the past two years, show the improvement which has taken place this year Receipts first flvo months, 1847 ?39,025 Receipts first five months, 1848 59,362 Inerease first five months, 1848. $10,737 This increase amounts to about fifty per cent, and is on the same length of road. The business of this line is entirely of a local ch araoter?and the manufacturing Tillages through which it passes, secures a 'arge amount of freighting business. There is, therefore, every prospeot that tho aboyo ratio of increase will be realised throughout the year, and that two dividends, of at least four per cent each, will be made in January and July next. The extension of the road is in such a state of progress that it will probably be completed and ready for active operations by tho 1st of November next, which will open the communication with Brattleboro', Vt . and attraot to this city all tho trade of that valley. Between Brattleboro' and Bellows Falls, there is a break of sixteen miles In the great iron chain, for the filling up of which no provision has as yet been made. This will soon bo covered by some company, and the connection made between Long Island sound and the Canada frontier. North of Bellows Falls, eighty-eight miles of continuous railroad are in progress in the valley of the Conucctl cut river, and will probably be completed sometime this year. Still farther North, portions of the rassumpslc river aud Montreal railroads are nearly oompleted; and before the lapse of many months, there will be one unbrokon line of railroad from the St. Lawrence to Long Island sonnd. The completion of the New York and New Haven Railroad will connect this city with this lino and all tha other lines of New F.ngland, and must open lo this city the trade of an Immense section of oountry which has heretofore been almost shut out from us. The population, Industry, resources, and wealth of tho Connecticut river yelley, must rapidly increase with these additional facilities of getting to and from the largest and moat important market in the Western world. Whatever point this city may have reached, or whatever position it may oeonpy in the commercial world, it has been thus far dependent upon few artificial advantage*. It* geographical location and natural resource*, have given it that superiority it enjoy*, and there is in the course of completion works of art, which mast give as an impetus greater than ever yet realized within its history. We allude particularly to the numerous railroads in the process of construction, North, East, and West?t he Erie Railroad, stretching to the shores of one of the most important Western lakes, the Harlem and Albany Railroads connecting this city with the lines of railroads running through the interior tof this State and Massachusetts, and running North to the southern point of Lake Champlain, and the Now Ha veu road connecting an with the numerous linos running from Long Island Sound into the interior of all the New Kngland States, and perfecting the communication with the Eastern extremity of Maine. These roads will open a new era in the commercial prospects of the commercial emporium, and rapidly Increase its wealth and greatness. In connection with this vast plan of internal improvement, wo must not lose sight of tho rapid increase in our steam communication by water, with not only every part of our own country on the seaboard, and on our magnitlcent navigable rivers, but with all parts of Europe, Mouth America, and the West India Islands. We can see what a few years have already accomplished in the navigation of our rivers by our steamboats; and what a few months have accomplished in the navigation of tho ocean by our steamships; but we can form n o idea of what the next five, or even the next two years will bring forth in this branoh of enterprise. Our splendid ships have ploughed the waters of every navigable sea on the face of the globe, and they have been the wonder and admiration of every nation; and we are destined to occupy the same proud position in relation to steam ships. The success which has crowned our early efforts, is sufficient to urge us onward, without a moment's faltering, until we have reachod perfection in that department of mercantile marine. This port, must from its position, be the grand depot of this new business, and we will, of course, have tho full benefit of the trade derived from this new mode of communication with all parts of the world. It will thus be seen, that the next few years will give us an impetus greater than we have ever before realised, in a similar length of time, and plaoe us so far iu advance of our contemporaries, that we shall hear nothing more of their competition for the trade of every section of the country. The annexed statement exhibits the quantity of certain articles received at St. Louis, from the 1st of January to the 1st of July, in each of the past throe years.

It will be perceived that there has been a very great increase in the receipts of provisions of all kinds this year, compared with either of tho previous two. Breadstuflfs have not been so active this year as last, but the decrease has not been so great as at many other Western ports. When we take into conslderation, prices this year compared with those current in the early part of last, it is astonishing that the receipts of produce generally have been so large.

From the solthern adverti9er.-interesting to Mothers.?There is no stage of life in which the Diarr'ioia makes such fearful ravages am org the human fiunilvas with the tender infant. Very few, if any, can be found that have passed through their infantile days, without an attack of Cholera Infantum, or 3ummer Compluint, produced by teething, or other muses, which, in too many instances, terminates cithsr in death or an impaired constitution. It is confidently believed that more children die annually from this than from all other complaints. The question at onee arises, why is this? The answer is at hand. It must be the want of proper treatment in the first stages of the complaint. A resort is usually had, in the first place, to cathartics, to cleanse the bowels, followed up with some preparation of opium, such as paregoric, laudanum, or the like, which, by a constant irritation, often produces an inflammation, placing the little sufferer beyond the reach of oure, and resulting in a premature grave. The experience of hundreds, who have already proved the efficacy of Billings' Carminative anu Astringent Syrup in cases of this kind, will most assuredly show that this is a medicine peculiarly adapted to them. It is recommended by the most distinguished physicians, as the Great Southern Remedy. Sold by A. B. & D. SANDS, corner William and Fulton sts. ana py viiao. a. nmu, corner nro*uway and John at.

To what other cause can we assign the decade than to the disturbed state of the public ind upon the territorial questions? It is true that triple here know well that it is all tulk-?they now that there is no dangei of a separation bevetn the North and ^outn, and that t struggle merely u peaceable one for political ascendency, rapped up in a hypocritical mantle of phihtnthrolj bnt foreigners, not so conversant with the hemes of our politicians, have become alarmed, id, until the question be settled in some way, eir alarm will continue, and not only continue, it increase. Is this question?a mere abstraction of sufficient importance, to not only set free the naticism of the Union, hut to iniure our credit? id, it may be, by diverting foreign capitul, to mre it permanently! We think not. Better, much tter, at once to give up the whole of the vast aetes on the Pacific. There is no patriotism in e discussion; it is a mere sectional struggle for iwer. France, Germany, all Europe, is struging to supplant tyranny, by establishing repuo s. They look to the United States as their moi. Alas? whut a spectacle do we present! General Taylor's letter of acceptance of tho liladelphta nomination was received here on iturday evening, and has created much divsatis* ction among the ultra whigs. They expected at the old general would be caught at last, and irrender himself, body and soul, to the party, hey complained that heretofore he resembled ei Irishman's flea?when you put your tiuger on m he wasn't there?and they honed that his iswer would corner him. But "old Zack never irrenders," and he still remains before the couny. untrammelled by party pledges, the candidate ftlie people. Detections have already commenced i the whig ranks. As an instance, Slingerland, f the Albany district, New York, who, until Sairday, co-operated with the Taylor wings, and nused his name to appear at their meetings, has lis morning written a letter to a number of genemea in Albany, by whom he has been invited to ttend a district meeting to dissent from the 'hiladelphta nomination, accepting their inviition, aud recommending a separate ticket for le Presidency to be chosen at the Convention Inch meets at Buffalo on the 9th. The same Ibany committee addressed Botts, of Virginia, eking if Clay had pledged himself to Taylor, [r. Botts replied that he had not; but to-day e adds a postscript to his letter, in which he ates, that as soon as Mr. Clay receives General aylor's answer to th whig nomination, he will iblisli a card, denying his acquiescence in Tayr's nomination, and suggesting a separate whig pket. " There's a tunny time coming, boys." The land warrunt hawks, satiated, |>erhape, itii preying upon the poor soldiers, have compneed to prey upon each other. The latest case ph somewhat utter this fashion. A deaJer in w Orlenns came across a number of returned Idiers, hard up for cash, and satisfied their wanla on receiving a power of attorney, in the manner desciibed in a former letter. The different tificates were forwarded to the proper authoies here, with directions to remit the value of warrants in monev, instead of land scrip, lis was all well enough. The soldiers left New leans, doubtless well satisfied, und reached ncinnati. llut here " a change came o'er the rit of their dream." They came across other " dealer." He learned their story, d, perhaps jealous at the speculation of his other " dealer" in New Orleans, advised the Idiers to permit him to write to Washington am and direct scrip to be sent to them at Cinmati instead of money to New Orleans. "When eek meets Greek then comes the tug of war." ic result of this move, if successful, would be to the New Orleans speculator out of all he had vanced, and perhaps, as far as that goes, it would no great matter. Of eourse, no notice can be icn of the application. The only way to stop e issue of the money upon the power of attorney ven to the New Orleans man, would be to get me judge to issue an injunction until the matter ould be investigated. A question, however, ises, has the judicial power a right to interfere us in executive matters? and as we are not suffi ntly versed in the intricacies of the law, we ive the answer open. The Senate committee, we perceive, has struck t from the civil and diplomatic bill the clause iropriating a certain sum for the improvement of i Savannah river. There is no^ioubt this amendnt will be sanctioned by the Senate and paased the House. So the clerks in the departments iy at last sing Jubilate! Several papers have erted, apparently authoritatively, that the Prelent intended to veto the bill if it contained the vannali clause. The only means these papers ve had of deducting such an inference was open every one?namely, guess work. We have the ry best reason to know that the President has t expressed any opinten upon the billj and the cgvu iicuji ib u siuuuiiig pruoi mat ivir. 1'om ows how to keep his own counsel. rhc slave abduction trial was continued to-day. Mann concluding his argument commenced Saturday, for the defence. He submitted the owing propositions: 1st. That to prove the serjde of a slave, the master's assertion of propers not sufficient. 2d. That to establish a larly it must be proved that a trespass was comtted in taking from master's possession. 3d. iat the fact ol slaves being on board the prisons vessel is not sufficient, unless done by the priler's knowledge and consent. 4th. Same, hut it the embnrcation was by the prisoner's procure:nt. 5th. That there was no larceny committed, less prisoner knew the negroes were slaves, i. Color, not evidence ot slavery. 7th. If the Eoner found the negroes on his vessel and conned them to his own use, vet if no original tak;, no larceny. Mr. Carlisle then addressed the y, also for the defence, urging similar points to >se offered on Saturday l>y Mr. Mann, and upon icluding, the Court adjourned.
