Several other, and new, and curious changes have just passed over the face of political parties, and ihe contest now pending for the Presidency. Many of these events are striking and ludicrous. David Graham, a warm supporter of Mr. Clay for many years, and who, up to a very recent date, protested, publicly and privately, that if no other man would vote for him, he would stick to the sage of Ashland to the day of judgment and a quarter over, has come out in a striking letter, made his confession of faith to the Taylor platform, eased his conscience of his former speeches, and now returns, with fresh energy, to law and practice, in which he certainly makes more of a figure than he does in politics and patriotism. John M. Botts has nearly written his fingers off sometimes in favor of General Taylor, sometimes against him, no two days in succession in the same position; but he will probably be settled sometime next year. Mr. Clay himself has declared his repugnance to any nomination of himself, or to the use of his name in the contest, so as to interfere in any way with General Taylor, the whig candidate. He has declined to consent to a policy, similar to that which Mr. Van Buren lias adopted towards General Cass, the Baltimore candidate. In this matter, we must say, Mr. Clay has displayed a sell-denial, magnanimity, and a high sense of honor, that is altogether beyond the reach, capacity, or imagination of such a man as Martin Van Buren, of Kinderhook. John Van Buren has been running over the country so rapidly, as to run against a post, and to get knocked heels over head, a circumstance that seems to be a bad omen for the free soil movement. But, above all, General Taylor himself, has written a long and late jetter, written with so much tirmness, candor, simplicity, intelligence, and decision, as to open, in a new place and in a Iresh shaj?e, the ideas of the whig recusants all over the country. ^ Genera' Taylor's last letter puts us in mind, in its leading I characteristics, of the last speech of General Cavaignac, wlio is now at the head ot the French republic. The same simplicity, energy, common tense, candor, and patriotism, pervade both. All those events, connected together, are beginning to create a very considerable change in a certain portion ol the public mind, that heretofore has been discontented with the Baltimore and Philadelphia nominations. We cannot disguise the fact, that recent movements from the Atlantic to the Mississippi, the elections inVermont and Maine, and the developments of principles and men, seem to point to a re-organization ol the old whig und democratic parties, under firmer auspices and better foundation lor making this one ol the most even und doubtlul contests that ever agitated this conlederacy ; but a contest, thus far, conducted with foibearance, propriety, and decorum, with the simple exception, such as that of Philosopher Ritchie, at Washington, Chevalier Wychofl, in iNew York, and a few other violent men in different parts of the country, and belonging to both parties. The movement, therefore, which was commenced in favor of Mr. Clay, lias been knocked in the head, and tiie individuals who took part in that affair, must either return to their former associates in the whig pally, go over to General Cass or Mr. Van Buren, or stay at home and mend their breeches and their principles, for another contest. David Graham will probably stick to his law practice, and John M. Botts may go back to his imrtiPH nnrl c;f:<ti!pH T hp whirra who linvo d^for. mined to support General Taylor in this region, are therefore becoming very warm, enthusiastic, and confident of success. The friends of General Cass, and the regular democracy, are not idle. They do not mean to give up their position, and the spoils, without one of the severest contests that ever took place. The threatening* fulminated by the administration at Washington, against the barnburners in this region, occu, ying pufclic offices, are beginning to work wonders in the way of political opinions. We are credibly informed, that many of those recreants, who had been js-e.aring to throw themselves into the free soil movement, are gradually withdraw ing from the strength of the cuirent, and w ill as gradually return to their old associates, and be in favor of General Cass before November. In fact, we believe that the free soil movement, running into abolitii.nisru. and started by Mr. Van Jiuren to defeat General Cass, has reached its highest point of drvelope/nent for the present. We are led to torm this opinion, not only from the re cent elections in Vermont and Maine, which indicate a iinil&r view of the matter, hut also from the important lact, that every party in the North, every (action in the fr?e States, whether supporting general Cui, General Taylor, or any other man, deny that they are in favor of making New Mexico and California slave States, or slave territory, under any circumstances. Witn theae hroad developments of public opinion in the free States, in favor of free soil, Mr. Vun Huron's ground of action is swept from under him, and he and his supporters are reduced to the old abolition platform, with such strength as his personal adherents, and his hostility to General ' a.?s, may add to the number. That strength we have seen in its highest developement in Vermont, in the recent (lection there, and a similar disclosure was made in'. Maine. In neither cue is there, however, a I basin for calculating, as some enthusiasts do, that Mr. Van Buren, in the approaching contest, hu the slightest chance of a single electoral vote in New York, New England, or elsewhere. Certainly, in this State, the whigs, with General Taylor as their candidate, stand immeasurably ahead of all that can be brought agamst them. The free soil movement in Penn" sylvania has shaken that commonwealth very considerably more than the recent earthquake shook the Catskiil mountains, if we judge from the noise and clamor made by a number of democratic paprs'in that region. Ohio, therefore, together with Pennsylvania, the Northwestern States, and some of the New England States, become the debateable ground in this contest; and the present position of parties, with the recent developments which we have enumerated, bid fair to make the struggle in the North principally between General Cass and General Taylor, without holding out the slightest prospect for Mr. Van Buren and his supporters occupying any other position, than t'?at of helping to defeat General Cass and assist General Taylor, by making an miond on the democratic party. The abolitionists, four years ago, expnded their fore*- on the whigs, and the probability is, that the kin movement of free soil will commit its ravages on the democrats this time. On this principle, the issue in the approaching election, and the uprising chances of General Taylor must hang. Such, at this moment, is our view of the present important contest. The free soil movement is not so deepiy involved in it in the free States, because all parties agree on that ground of action. Mr. Clay, like an honorable man, retires front the contest, and leaves the field to the candidate put forward by the Philadelphia Convention. General Cass is supported by the administration, and by the old democratic organization, with the exception of the Van lluren interest, united with the old abolition fragments. The prospect, therefore, is, that the conflict will be one of the most severe and doubtful that ever took place in this country, and the victory will be won by those who manage with the greatest skill and greatest tact, and who can gain over those who have not yet made up their minds on the questions pending in the conflict. Hon. John Miner Botts.?We have heard a ditch digger attribute the death of General Harrison to a pair of Yankee boots. We have seen the omens of Amos Kendall; foretelling the bad luck of the whig party, fulfilled as distinctly as any chapter of the prophet Amos, of old. Near the time ot the inauguration of President Harrison, an arm of the figure of justice fell down from the tympanum of the eastern portico of the Capitol; whereupon, "the heaven-bom" if not the heaven-inspired Amos, girded up his loins, and i rophesied in Jerusalem, that the vengeance of the Lord would descend ujjon the whigs, as it did upon the five kings of the Amorites, when the sun stood still upon Glbeou, and the moon in the valley of Ajalon, while Joshua, the Lord's anr.ointed, smote the enemy hip and thigh. And the pro| hecy of Amos was fulfilled, even as the command of Joshua, the son of Nun. Omens, therefore, coming from the E.x-Postmaster General, are entitled to respect. But, among all the prognostics dire pending upon the whig party, there is one circumstance in its history, almost forgotten, whose disastrous results are just now beginning to be felt. It was a learlul night when the bloody Richard was born ; it was a mild night when the Thane of Cawdor used his Bowie knife upon the good King Duncan; but who shall describe to posterity the pertentous signification of the meteorological phenomena of that awful night when John M. Rotts, M. C. and 1'. D.,-slept in the same bed with John Tyler. On that most ominous night, we doubt not Hague, the astrologer, could discover in the horoscope of Mr. Botts. that Mars, the god of war, was in the ascendant. On that most dreadful night, when Mr. Tyler and Mr. Botts talked over the blessings of a bank, and the advantages of j?eace, under the same Wilton blanket, a big war was brewing in the elements; and vetoes, and annexation, and the excommunication of his Accidency. That was a night in the history of John Tyler, and the whig paity, and Mr. Botts, never to be forgotten. From that night, John Tyler and Joh.* M. Botts were never to sleep under the same counterpane any more. Whatever may be the causes, it is a "fixed lact," (for which turn over the speeches of Culeb Cushing, and when found, take a note,) it is a " fixed fact," that the disasters to the whig party followed rapidly upon each other?the death of Harrison.?the coflee-houae letter?"head him I ?

Tul?t I UI UIC ?MIC ",v v?r ? tlie deleatof Mr. Bolls?the defeat of the whigs, and the defeat of Mr. Clay, from that night when two .Johns of Virginia drank out of the same demijohn, and bundled like brothers in the same bed. where never shall they sleep again. John Major or John Minor, you are done, John, with that donjon under which you dreamed, in each other's arms, of the glories of a monster hydra with thirty heads, beyond the reach of the bludgeon of Old Hickory. And still the curse upon the violation of the law, which declares that an ox and a mule shall not be yoked together, pursues the guilty parties in this case with a supernatural vengeance. John Tyler httB been doomed to the support of Gpneral Cats?and John M. Botts, failing to head Taylor and Tyler, is compiled to take his chances with the outsider*, by whom lie is supesceded. But he continues to damn the nomination, while lie grudgingly pledgee himself to vote the ticket* His recent letters ure set aside by the protest of JJcnry Clay against the use of his name on a ticket, which would end in no other result than the election of Gen. Cass. By the next meeting of the Clay whigs in common council at Vauxhall, we expect Mr. Uotts to come on to speak for himself, for Mr. Clay, and lor the nominee ; and the late eruption in the Bowery, though seconded by Mr. Botts and the telegraph, will end as harmlessly as the pmiIomoii of a holllOnt i>o:i I r>*rH?fi?r u/?> would udvise John M. llotts, M.

The Steamship Washington left her dock precisely at 12 o'clock,yesterday, for Southampton and Bremen. She passed down the bay nobly, in die face of a strong southeast gale. Her list of passengers is very small, numbering but eighteen of the first class.

From tbe shores of Newport, and Rockaway, and Long ' Branch, it has flowed back to its proper channel ' in the great cities. The fashionable world is, in ' fact, in a state of fashionable repose. From the , fatigue and dissipation of the Springs, where it , rttflAHn/l *a fat'imm on^ /li aaiIWtlOI\ 1VBVIK.U IU ICtlUll) CXI IL I Uic lUU^UV UUVi .r?? of last winter, it is now engaged in reposing a1 home, >n order to prepare for the fatigue and dissipation of the winter that is at hand. Cards are lazily exchanged, and notes compared, as to the number and value of recent conquests. What is to be the programme of the amusements of next season, it ib, as yet, difficult to tell. The highest ambition of New York fashion seems to be to display its proficiency in the Hungarian camP polka, and in the waltzes fashionable in the gardens of Paris. Beyond this they seldom venture. We do not despair, however, of seeing the tone of fashionabie life yet improved in this city. We learn there is a probability that we shall have two Italian opera troupes during the coming winter. One of these troupes is already organized by Mr. Fry, of Philadelphia, brother of the composer o Leonora. Among the principal artists, will be Trnffl, as Soprano. Pieo Meno-soprano and Contralto. Benedetti Tenor. Debreuil Baritone. Rossi Basso, * rv#*U? ItapeiU VI IU< Maretzeck Leader. With the exception of a few weeks at Saratoga and Newport, a number of the Italian artists have spent their summer in the quiet and romantic shades of Hastings, on the bank of the Hudson. There they might be seen roaming about in all the abandon of that far nitrite, so congenial to the Ijalian temperament, enjoying their leisure like so many Italian bandits, after a day's plundeo, or northern pirates, after a successful cruise. There might be seen, of an evening, the charming Truffi, under the shade of a large tree, her sweet face lit up by the slanting rays of the setting sun, listening to the tiny ripple of the waves, as they rehearsed their sweet, low, dreamy music on the p.vbbly beach. There, too, in some durk ravine, might Benedetti be observed, with dog and gun, peering about in search of game, his soul and fancy all attuned to the numberless sweet sounds which nature so bounteously gives out; or again, 011 the brink of some stream, busily employed in spearing frogs ?the which, by the way, he cooks with as much skill and success as he cooks the music of Doni. zetti. Madame Pico, oue of the most sweet and exquisite contraltos that ever was expartriated to this land of promise, has been also rusticating all the summer, sometimes at Hoboken, sometimes at . ctiten Island, sometimes at ivioominguaie. ?iie is now in a line condition of voice and spirits? and is as beautiful as ever. As for Rossi, he has been shooting squirrels at Hastings, and getting capsized in his drives towards Turrytown. lie is now ready for nction and fame, with his splendid voice, his splendid head, splendid shoulders, and fine person generally. All this must now come to an end. Pleasant recreations must give place to laborious rehearsals, and the artists are already engaged in busy preparations for the winter campaign of music and art, which will, it is to be hoped, divert the mind of the fashionable world from the frivolities of fruitless dissipation, and more especially from the vulgarities of the camp polka. In consequence et the earthquake which lately shook this city from its propriety, or of the recent occultation of the moon, or from some other cause not ascertained, the troupe will not commence in this city, but in Philadelphia. Probably Mr. Fry, beind himself a Philadelphtan, wishes to ascertain the sentiments of his own city before encountering the critical judgment of a New York audience, lie will cpen in Philadelphia in the first week of October, and in this city, at the Astor Place Opera House, in the first week in November* During the next ten days, many of the fashionables of this city and other places will probably go to Philadelphia for the purpose of attending the openinnr nf (hp onprfl v. % ' ? This is not all. We understand that Mr. Hani- | blin is at present negotiating for the organization of an Italian opera troupe, to comprise Alboni, Grisi, Mario, Lublache, (if a berth on board any of the packets can be found large enough to contain his huge dimensions), and others of London and Parisian celebrity. Should this enterprise succeed, the production of Italian opera at the Park Theatre, with this troupe, will cause greater ravages among the fortunes of this city than is caused by uny hurricane that sweeps over the West Indies. But, the introduction of operatic and clasiic en' tertainments will produce one good result, at least. Il will chasten the tone of our fashionable society refine their tastes, banish, perhaps, for a time, model ailists and the camp polka, and conduce to the gradual improvement ot the habits, views, feelings, Ecrtiments, manners, minds, and even morals, of the fashionable society of this great city. Wc fear that even in the last particular? their morals?there is vast room lor improve* ment. Exri LsioN from the Navy.?We have learned, from u private source, that the midshipmen belonging to the naval school at Annapolis, engaged as principals in the duels which lately took place there, have been, by order of the President of the United States, dismissed from the navy. As yet, there has been no official statement of the fact. and we tlierelore hope that it is the intention of 'he President to reinstate them. The rules of the service, punishing duelling by dismissal, though stringent in the letter, have rarely, before the present administration, been carried into effect. We remember various instances wherein duels between midshipmen and civilians, teiminating fatally to the latter, have been overlooked, notwithstanding that the present rules were then in force. As tf> Juels between midshipmen, they have been, and are still, matters ol monthly occurrence, but they scarcely ever result fatally. The young gentlemen exchange shots, their honor is satisfied, and there is an end. A slight abrasion of lhe skm, or, at most, a trivial flesh wound, winds up the affair, and they are thenceforward fast friends. I-or such trifles, it is too hard they should be visited with the serious penalty of dismissal, iwrticularly as the rule has b< < n hitherto a dead letter. This is not all. The very men who frame those rules for the prevention of duelling in the navy, give the practice the sanction of their own example. It was hut the last day of the session of Conill tit luiminnil'fl tllttt tim. rreovo ? ??.??, ? "?v fjinit OCIIfllUI, VI pretty mature age, challenged another grave Senator, of still nmturer age, to mortal combat; the provocation being, that the elder Senator gave Ins venerable junior the lie direct. Is it then strange that the midshipmen at Annapolis, with their young veins filled with hot blood, should do what the cold-blooded grey-beards in Congress practise as a thing essential to the vindication of their honor? It is true, Mr. folk himself has not in his own person sanctioned the practice, but his example is wholly powerless, so long as duelling is countenanced by those who make the laws by which those midshipmen are controlled. We do not s)<eak in vindication of a practice which has nothing to justify it; but we deem it eminently unjust to give those rules against it 11 merely partial operation. The Cerman students fight with the broadsword, the rule being that they shall aioi altogether at the face, and the fight terminating when blood is drawn. The duels are frequent, but never attended with consequences more serious than the necessity of wearing a piece of couit-nlaister on a damaged nose, or an abraded chin. If this system were introduced at Annapolis, it would do more to arrest the practice of duelling. than all the severe penalties in the power of the President to inflict. We truat, on the whole, seeing that the recent duels have resulted harmlessly, and that they were engaged in under the influence of strong excitement, that the young gentlemen concerned will be restored to their rank, and that some more effectual mode will be adopted of arresting the practice of duelling in the navy. Tbemlrlral and BuluJ. Fin Thcatke.?The third pofgnubm of th* Monplalsir troop*, at this beautiful retort of amuaement, was witnaaaed last evening by another crowded houM) and received with the most unbounded applause. Madame Monplaislr shone last night with a new brilliancy; and displayed such an ardor, and so much talent,that she took all her admirers as by astorm. We must confess that she is the best personation we ever saw, of the true gipssy; and when she appears in her splendid costume in the first act, and bounces mere than she dances, she makes the greatest impression. Madame Monplalsir appreciates fully therouiantic character given by the French poet, Victor Hugo, to his ''Esmeralda," which she personates with a very happy melange of graceful abandon,X and a dis play of aprpoprlate feeling. M. Monplaislr Impresses, more and more, the audience, by his excellent mimio style of playing Oringoire, and in the second act, in the gmnd lias dt deux, his efforts are truly fairy.Iike. His sanl? and entreehalt are stamped with the true seal of fascinating grace and wonderful agility. M. Corby, as (Quasimodo, makes, also, a deep impression. When we read the nevel of Hugo, we could not believe that such a monster could have ever existed, but the comedian has accomplished the animation of this lusus nature it is. indeed, horrible ! M Cornet, though a man of small else, is a very elegant Phccbus, and his acting, as well as his dancing, are very creditable. Miss Anna Bulan, who is a very interesting Hanteuie, and who, in the schoel of Madame Monplaislr, improves everyday, is destined to reach a high rank in her profession, for she has much ballnn and jarrets, and possesses a very pretty figure withal. As for Mons. Grossi, his part of Claude Frollo is well played, and this comedian gives to itthe!real stampjof the character. The corps de ballet drills in a very creditable style; and the orchestra, led by Signor I.amanna. performs wonders. The whole is a very brilliant alTair, and no doubt the ballet of ' Esmeralda" will draw crowded houses for ensuing months. It will be repeated this evening. We have forgotten, for the last two days, to mention the English vaude vines wmcn nave Deen periormeu previous to me oauet ?the farce of " Somebody Klse," and that of " Ladles, Beware In the first, which was repeated last evening, we have to speak approvingly of Miss Rose Telbin and Mr. Dawson, whose excellent style deserves muoh credit. In the second, Ueorge Barrett, the eccentric and comic actor, Misses Telbin and Taylor, and also Mr. Dawson, excited the laughter of the whole audience. These farces are indeed very well performed. Broadway Theatre.?It is in such a play as "Othello" that a great actor is tested. There is not, perhaps, in the whele range of the drama, a piece so difficult as Othello, nor one in which even great actors have made, oftentimes, such great failures. There is so much passion and feeling displayed in the character of Othello. From the height of bliss and happy love, he passes to such a depth of misery, to such horrid anguish of mind, which works him up to commit the most horrid of deeds ; then there is such misery of remorse and sorrow, that altogether, a man to represent this picture faithfully, must be more endowed than men in general, ;with not |merely a mind to conceive the character, but with a depth of soul to feel all that the author has made Othello to suffer. Mr. Forrest, last evening, performed Othello with such astonishing powers of genius?with such terrible truth and nature?as to excite the strongest and most violent emotions in the immense audience which hung upon bis words and looks. We never saw any performance equal to this. But what physical powers, as well as mental, it must require ! There is such a constant succession, such a reiterated sprining up of emotion and passion ! The exertion put in requisition to play the part as Mr. Forrest did last night, with such agonizing, such terrific, such soul-stirring reality, is almost too much for human strength to go through. Sueh scenes and sufferings, in the reality, would kill any man; and Mr. Forrest's performance, last evening, was, indeed, for the time-being, a reality. Fame and wealth, heaped up to their highest, could never recom petite adequately tuck exertions and genius; and we may be well assured, that as they could not repay, bo ntilher could they ever purchase such acting. Othello contains eoine of the finest of Shakspeare's poetical passages, and that is saying some of the finest passages and speeches to be found in the Knglish language. These, difficult as It is to give them, without letting the interest flag. Mr. Forrest gave with intense leeliag and beauty, keeping up. even in a long speeoh, all the feeling and efficiency of a brief exclamation, and all the perfection of the illusion of the completest reality. We never beheld such a thing before, nor thought it possible. It proves how deeply the artist felt bis part and how completely Forrest lost in the commencement his own personality and identity, in becoming Othello. We confess, candidly and simply, that we are lost InVstonisbment and admiration, at the contemplation of the wonderful performance of Mr. Forrest last night ? Time will not permit the bestowal of that tribute of praise they so justly deserve, which ought to be given to the talented co-laborers with Mr. For.'est in the high and the sublime intellectual display which was given last evening. Vliss Wallack and Mrs. Abbott, both, performed with more than usual beauty and talent, while Dyott'a [ago, and Lester's Cassio, were masterpieces of good acting. Buxton's Theatre.?The high reputation which this popular place of evening recreation has acquired, under the able management of the present enterprising proprietor, Mr. Burton, continues to characterize the performance each evening. The present attractions are properly appreciated by its numerous patrons, and ' Comus" was again repeated last evening with its usual success. We have repeatedly taken occasion to notice the splendid manner in which this grand lyric drama has been got out, with so powerful a cast, consisting of Messrs. Lynns, Jordan, Mrs. U. Loder, and the large array of first-rate talent that appeared each night since its introduction here. To night, this beautiful drama will be presented for the last time, and those who bate not, as yet, witnessed the performance, should avail themselves of so favorable an opportunity. The " Dancing Barber," last evening, was also admirably performed Mrs. <i. Loder,as Lady Frltterly, acquitted herself with much cleverness ; and Johnson's Fitzfrizzle was a humorous performance. The entertainments. altogether, passed oil with entire success.? The bill for this evening will be found highly attractive. and the music, scenery, groupings, bacchanalian tableaux, and general manner In which " Comus" is got out would amply compensate the visiter at this well conducted and popular theatre. Milton's admirers ought to see " Comus," as it is got out here. Niblo's, Aztor Flack.?Shakspeare's fine old comedy of the '-Merry Wives of Windsor" was performed at thio theatre, last evening, with Mr. Hackett as Falstatf, Vandenhc IT as Ford, and Chippendale as Master Slender. Mr. Hackett is, beyond all comparison, tho best l alstall on the American boards, and it is his best part. Ills conception of it Is perfect, and bis acting almost faultless. Mr. Vandenbolf, as Ford, was not appreciated by the audience, it seemed to us, as he deteivtd.

In consequence of the disagreeable state of the weather, the attendance was not so numerous as usual, which we regret the more, as the performance was for the benefit of the amiable ami accomplished Mile, l.ovarny. The entertainment was varied and excellent. The choruses were delightful, and were more like the harmony produced by a combination, if it were possible, of the powers of one individual, than the united efforts of a company.

Imllf; nation Itlnllnpj of lire German " Volks ereInat North American Hall, A large meeting of that body of our German citizens, 1 who [compose the ' Volk-verein," (people's union,) a i society, consisting of many of the most estimable, re- j spec table, and intelligent of our German fellowciti- ; zens, who have made it their special duty to guard | and protect the Interests of their newly arrived countrymen, was held at " North American Hall," corner of Bowery and Bayard streets, on the evening of the 13th inst. Mr Bocker presided, and after he had briefly stated the object of the meeting, llrl.udwig. the chairman of a special oommittee, read a report, of which the following is un abstract:? It was partly known to the public, and partly published through the Volksverein that German emigrants, on application to the Commissioner* of K.migratiou, appointed by the act of 5th May. 1847. sufTeredextraordinarily severe treatment, and that, in consequence of this, the two German officers employed in the office of said Commissioners, resigned their office*. as they could only protest against, but not prevent this treatment. Un n careiui examination < i tue utiii'reni complaints made, we And that a poor woman. a mother, was refused the aid to lorward hi r to Wisconsin?that to a helpless and poor German, who hud been received at "Ward's Island, the return to Germany was denied? that Bnother German, whom a reception at Ward's Island had been promised, was forced, with a wounded and sore foot, to walk the distance of seven miles, behind the wagon, which contained only six persons, (but which is arranged for tlie accommodation of twenty.) and that patients with the small pox are promiscuously mixed with healthy emigrants, at the office, as well as in the sick wsggon. which takes all sorts of patients to the hospital, and that the protestations of German officers, and of the very ooacbmen themselves, against such usage, weie without effect. Moreover, in all cases. German emigrants, when making inquiries or complaints at the proper offices, were always treated with a repulsive and bruCal coarseness. whilst, on the other hand, Irish emigrants were much better provided for, and were constantly supplied with pecuniary aid, which w-as always refused to 4 let mans. The report also discusses the relative position of German and Irish emigration, and shows the following result. Last year, 63 180 German, and 62,040 Irish emigrants arrived at New York, who have paid into the treasury of the Commissary of Kmigration each $1, and also 60c. as hospital money. Of these emigrants, only 872 Germans, but 0650 Irish, became recipients of the assistancejof the Commissioners, and consequently, after deduction of expenses, the German emigration has brought to the treasury a surplus of $07,374 52, whilst the Irish emigration cost (21.019 76 more than was received from them. Thus have the Germans paid the expenses ot the Irish emigrants The current year will show a similar result. Notwithstanding all this, however, the Germans, who are ignorant of the language. are not only not properly represented in the commission, but are usually put back and abused by those in authority. After a lengthened report, of which the above are the principal points, the following resotions were) adopted:? Resolved, 1 bat a committee of fifteen German citizens ba ap pointed, to examine further into the ca-rs now reported to tlio commissioners of tt e "Volk-verein" to relieve sncli oases, and to tee tLtm righted; and to report at the proper tune to the " Volka vcrein." Resolved. To petition the Governor of the State of New York to till the office of a mender of thu Commissary of Emigration, (which will soon he vacant, and msy now lie considered as vacant,) I y an adopted citizen of Gorman birth. Resolved, To petition, also, the Board of Health of the eity of New York, to employ aCeimau physician and German nurses at the ditlcrent hospitals of the quarantine, on Stiten Island: as, also, toiieiitieni the Conunisiary of Emigration for renewed employment of divers Geimaus in New York, as well as Albany, in their ofEcta Resolved, That all our German fellow citizens and others, bo invited to aid the Genran "Volk-verein" in its endeavors for the welfare of newly arr.ved emigrants.

Reading railroad adranced \ per cent. It ia reported tbat the Reading Railroad Company have ezeouted another mortgage on its property to the amount of one and a half million of dollars. The object of this mortgage is to provide for the floating debts of the company, and the bonds are to he issued as required, at the rate of seventy per eent., bearing Interest at six per cent, on par. It is stated thatr the necessities of the company at present only requlra an issue of abeut one-third the amount of the mort {age, but in anticipation of the want of funds to meet, some of the bonds maturing at an early period, they hfi/v#* hfiAn nrovidpd for in th* unrn rckiaafl. A aote, of the denomination of $60,altered by extracting the name of the bank for wbioh it was originally is ; sued, and inserted the name of the Bank of Commeroe n the city of Philadelphia, was in circulation in Philadelphia, a day or two since. It bears not the slightest resemblance to the genuine note, either in the engraving or the signatures, that of the President, J. Kamey, being a fictitious name?no such person ever haying been connected with the Bank of Commerce in that sity. The steamship Washington, for Southampton, carried out $66,000 in Mexican coin. This is a part of. ;he one hundred and twenty thousand dollars received 'rom Mexico a few days since, and deposited in the Mechanics' Bank. The balanoe will, probably, go out in the Europa.

There must be considerable activity on th? part of forwarders, from this time to the close of navigation, to give ns sufficient supplies of breadstulfs to meet the demand for consumption, and for export, un" til the opening of the canals iu the spring. From pre" sent appearances, we should judge that prices would rule high in this market throughout the winter, and that the surplus for shipment would be small. Not_ withstanding the favorable accounts received by the last steamer from Liverpool relative to the harvest^ there is very little doubt but that a large quantity of breadstuff's will be wanted in Great Britain, between this and next summer, and the markets of that country will be open to us. provided we can compete with those nations more favorably situated for making good the deficiency in the Fnglish harvests. Shipments of flour and earn* made at present prices, will undoubtedly pay; but any important advance here would be fatal to that part of our export trade. Whatever surplus of fleur and grain we may have iu the country will be wanted abroad? and it would be much more to our advantage to snnnlw foreign matkets, nt moderate prices, than jto make large shipments at prices which would make a loss to i>bippers. Accorditg to the report of the Secretary of the Treasury, for the year ending June 30,1847, the home valuation of flour, exported to foreign ports, was $ 2(3.133 811, and of Indian corn, $14,396.212. This was the euetom house value. The charges on these shipments were a large per cent, of the first eost, which made the value, when landed in foreign ports, many millions of dollars more than that reported in tho official returns. It is well known that a large quantity of flour and grain, shipped in that year from this country to foreign ports, did not net the first cost, and th? proceeds of a portion of that which was sold, above* coets and charges, never were realized by the owners on* shippers on this side of the Atlantic. The numerous failures which took place in Londen and Liverspool, and in all parts of Ureat Britain and tho Continent, of those largely Indebted to this country. prevented us from obtaining the ainonnt of the faIcb actually made. An excitement, similar" to that which existed at that time, and shipments of breadstulfs made with the same recklessness, would he attended with the same difficulties, and result in similar disasters Our principal object should bs to keep down prices, to prevent an undue inflation, and to encourage shipments of produce in every legttlmato way, but particularly so as to realize sals* in foreign markets at a fair profit above cost and charges. Thw trade will thus continue healthy, and we shall stand tome chance of obtaining the proceeds. A few days since, we gave some tables showing tho extent of shipments of cotton to each country, and tho effect of such an unequal distribution of this important staple upon prices. The annexed table exhibits tho shipments of cotton from New Orleans in each of tho past four years, distinguishing the quantity exported to each port, both foreign and domestic.
