Tl?e Foreign New*. Our columns of this morning are pretty welj filled with the telegraphic details of the news received at Boston, yesterday, by the steamship Acadia. The news is of some importance. . Whilst the apprehended difficulty between France and Austria is apparently settled, by the reported acceptance by the latter power of the Anglo-French mediation in the affairs of Italy, the duchies of Sehleswig and Holstein have refused to acknowledge the armistice agreed upon by Denmark and Germany,?thus re-opening the question of war between the Northern powers of Europe, and placing peace on the Continent still in great doubt. In addition to this, fresh troubles have broken out in the interior of France, and anirmrr the leadinp men in Paris, which threatens the most fearful results to that republic. The commercial intelligence is of the greatest interest. The Foreign Malls. The mails of the Acadia, for New York and the South, left Boston yesterday at ten minutes past 12 o'clock, by a special government express, in charge of Thomas Pomeroy, Esq., Deputy Postmaster of Boston. Owingto the arrangements, cn route, it is expected that they will not reach this city much before five o'clock this morning. Our despatches will come by this conveyance, and we shall publish ample details of the European intelligence i 1 our Afternoon Edition, at one o'clock, to-day. General Taylor's Prospects?Whig Journalism. If General Taylor is to be elected Piesident ol the I'nited States, it has been admitted openly by many politicians, and tacitly by all, that the power and influence of the whig party cannot ac complish such a feat /tr st, as Captain Tyler would say, or by its own individual influence, as we would pay. It is now more than two years ago. since the hero of Buena Vista was brought forward by the independent journals and politicians?long before he was taken up by the whig party, tie was i first named in connection with the Presidency, | after his first battle on the Rio Grande, in the coumne of the jVctc York Herald : and this movement, thus begun, was followed up, with similar indications, by the greater portion of the independent journals throughout the country. This was done without any reference to party, or to cliques of politicians, and without any aid or concurrence from them. Both of the old organized parties, speaking through their various newspapers, and by their leaders, in different parts of the country, opposed this movement in its very inception ; and nothing but the force of the popular voice, coming from the independent journals and 'rom independent bodies of the people, caused him to become such a formidable candidate as to make the parties wish to avail themselves of him, and to give him the chances of receiving the whig nomination at Philadelphia. He afterwards received that nomination with, however, violent opposition from the whig leaders as such. Thus, his strength and hi3 prospects of success, have, from the first, been based upon his supposed popularity and availability with that great and independent portion of the American community which defies the shackles of party, and is opposed to the ludicrous platformsof cliques and coteries of politicians. The nnminnt inii nnd plerlmn <if Clpnprul Hum. Eon eight years ago, spiang from a similar state ! and position oi the political elements in his day. I The whig party, be such, for the last twenty years, i has never lieen able hy its own individual strength ' to elect a Piesident of the United States, nor can j this party at this day, succeed in electing General ! Taylor without concurrence and aid Deyond its own ranks, and without adopting such a course as will find a response among the independent thinkers and journals ol the debatable States. The recent State elections, north and south, and particulaily the results of the elections in Ver mont and Maine, testify the accuracy of these views in reference to the pending contest. The free 6?il movement of Martin Van liuren and company, is already reduced to a certainty. It will operate chiefly in the State of New York, but hy no means to the same extent or in the same 1 direction in the other States ol the Union.? 1 Vermont it is true, has given a great accession of strength to the lree soil movement, but the general results are not varied much in that ^tate, on this account. The whig party has always oe?n in .lie ascendancy there, and retains this ascendancy still, according to the returns of the las' lection. The democratic party, with the excepticn ?>t 'he contest of 1810, always held the ascendancy in Maine; and the result of the late election in that Sttte, while it gives a trifling increase to the free soi'. movement, by no means varies the general johtical character of the State, and the democracy theie appears still to be in the ascendancy as strongly .s ever. The free soil movement in Pennsylvania it in a critical and doubtful posit on ; it is difficult in speak with any accuracy, a', present, as to its prospects, and the extent of its O|>er?tio!i in thut State, The same may be said of Ohio, and the Northwestern States in general. ' The free soil agitati >11 inay operate mare against 1 ihrjwh gs than against the democrats it i.- evi* ' dent, thcri fore, on a calm and dispassionate con- ' sudtrauoo pf the electivus iu holli the Lutein and ' in ii tttttt? rn nm i i jlaxr W'? stern Sutes, t!:at the free soil movement id confined in its4r<tfucnces and operations chiefly to the State of New York, arising, chiefly, fioin the petBi nul influence ur.d popularity of Mr. Van Bur en and his friends, confined to that State, and extending very little beyond its Jimits. In this view of the contest, the policy to be pursued by ? hig journalism and whig meetings ia of the most essential importance, during the few remaining weeks until the 7th of November. Now, what is the character of this policy 1 Do they adept a mode calculated to make converts or proem e adherents in the debatable States ol Ohio. lVnns} lvanin, or the West 1 Are the sentiments of the various whig journals, w hich profess to be friendly to Gen. Taylor, congenial to the feelings ol the people in those doubtful regions ! This is a question which may easily be answered by perusing, for onlv a lew weeks, the columns of those newspapers, in New York and other States. The leading journals in this city in tavoroi ( Jen. Taylor, belonging formerly to the whig party, are the Courier and En</uiier, the daily Express, the Commercial Advertiser, and the New York Tribune. These are the most prominent, the others are mere leather and prunella, and utterly insignificant in guiding, directing, or agitating public opinion. These journals give the tone to the other whig newspajiers in the Northern States, and, in a measure, control the opinions ol the whig party generally. Now, in watching the policy pursued by these journals, we can say, promptly and decidedly, it is ol such a character as to repel those masses ol independent thinkers, throughout the city of New York and the country at large, who have American feelingB and democratic sympathies, from the support of Gen. Taylor. In almost all public questions, and in those great democratic sentiments which would be congenial to the mass 01 American uemocracy, in an sections 01 me Union, and especially in New York, the New York journals have opposed, ridiculed, and reviled the liberal or American side ol the question. They have, in such questions, taken ground absolutely more Luropean and more hostile to republican feelings and sympathies, than one would have expected even from the high-toned aristocratic papers in London and the rest of Europe ! Upon the Irish question, which offered a field for sympathy broad and wide, sufficient to affect the whole mass of Irish voters in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and elsewhere these journals took the very same ground which the violent anti-Irish journals took in London and other places. Now, it is well ascertained, tha1 the number of Irish naturalized citizens in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and the other debatable States, is quite large enough to decide a close election in favor of the side they take. But, instead of conciliating this class by the course they have pursued, they have, with the single exception of the Tribune, which, however, rendered itself quite ridiculous by its folly and credulity, opposed and insulted every measure and proposition calculated to bring about a revolution in Ireland, or to advance the great cause of republican principles on ihe continent. Even the French republicjand its destiny, have very generally been a subject of depreciation, ridicule, or misrepresentation, among these journals. Is it possible, therefore, that such a course of action, in the gTeater portion of the whig press, now sup* porting General Taylor, can be expected to operate advantageously and favorably upon the sentiments of the unbiassed democracy, in those States to which we have above alluded ? Certainly not. Such a course and policy cannot operate otherwise than most unfavorably upon the prospects of Gen. Taylor in every part of the Union. Upon another highly important public sentiment the whig journals and whig journalism here have taken up a similar anti-American, anti-patriotic, and anti-democratic ground. They constantly represent General Cass, on the one side, as being in favor of more progress, and of increasing the magnitude of our republic; while, on the other side> they represent General Taylor as hostile to the advancing dest:ny of the United states. General ca6S is represented as anti-British, in tavor ot more territory, an advocate for the incorporation of Cuba and Canada and the entire annexation of Mexico, with this great and magnificent Union ; while they represent General Taylor, the very man who was the chief instrument in bringing within our limits California and Northern Mexico, as actually opposed to our progress, op|>osed to these accessions, and agreeing with the/11 in the sentiment of wishing to reduce the policy of tine country, if he should be elected, j to absolute nonentity and permanent stand-still. Now, however, much these their sentiments may prevail among the cotton, and stock, and shipping, and money brokers in Wall street, who adopt their sentiments chiefly from English houses, English brokers, and English merchants, we are persuaded that such opinions, connected with the great destiny of this great republic, prevail very little beyond the high trading quarters of this and other cities. They have no existence in this country beywid the commercial, the cotton, and wheat speculating cliques, who arc regulated entirely in their movements and feelings by the rate of exchange, and who square their political notions according to their English connexions, and British correspondence. The truth is that the whig journalism of this country must b? considered more in the light of a British rovincial press, aB echoing the opinions of British statesmen, as lavouring the sentiments of the British aristocracy, in all shapes, rather than as organs of the unbiassed pure American sentiment, in all public matters, which, out of, and beyond the gr?at commercial cities, prevails throughqpt the Union. Now, even the mere representing Genera^ Cass as exclusively the warcandidate, and General Taylor, on the other hand, as the peace candidate, is enough to injure the latter among the democratic classes of the doubtful States, which we have before enumerated. To place this view yet in the clearest possible light, by reference to historical facts, we need only to allude to the unfortunate political history of Henry Clay, during the last twenty-five years. When that great statesman, natural orator, and original American democrat, dyed in the wool, we might say, first became a candidate for the Presidency, his chances were undoubtedly as good as those of any other man, in his day. The mutabili ties of political agitation threw him twenty years ago into the hands of that party, which, after assuming various names, has taken a' last the cognomen of whig for its peculiar title. That party, in its opinions and sentiments, has generally been under the influence of that portion of the press which has sprung up and exists in a few of our great commercial cities. These jour, nals have been, for the last quarter of a century, more the organs of the British government than of the American people. This portion of the \inerican press, upon all occasions in which British interests are concerned, has cliieHy taken sides with that government in opposition to our own. And even at this day, when the question of liberty or tyranny is coming rapidly to ho issue in Lurope, this same class of journals follows .n the wake of the London Timet, and other journals, in defaming. belying, and misrepresenting the move, rnents, as well of the French revolution, as the efiorts also of the people in every other 'luarter of the world, to establish reform, to renovate their governments, to overturn the kingly power, and to establish institutions similar to those of the United States. The defeat of Ilenry Clay, for the last twenty years, in his aspirations for the Presidency, has mainly sprung fr< in fihese journals, and this journalism, from the absence of all sympathy on the part of the great body ?if the American people with the ideas of *uch journals, and from the influence which these j aiue newspa|>ers have had upon the sentiments of i lie whig party. The only exception to this state ' >1 things took place in when General Harri- \ ten was elected iu pile of this journalism, and before the se anti-American joornald had time to destroy und ruin hi* prospects, and defeat lus election, us they certainly would have had the contest lasted longer. In this brief statement of the policy and |>osition oi the leading wing journals in this metrojHilis, we perceive an eli mtnt calculated to work against Gen. Taylor among the great body of the |>eople in the debatable tStates, and calculated to aid in the election of < It*. Cass. The influences which surround these journals, in this city, are too powerful, too narrow, and too much under Hritish agency, mixed up with ingredients of percentage and profit, to be operated upon in the present crisis of the contest. I 'nless, therefore, the original popular elements throughout the country, which first nominated Gen. Taylor?unless the whole inde|>endent press, and men pervaded with the spirit of American democracy and progress?unless ihey come to the rescue, and counteract the malign policy and pernicious course of the New York urltlff i nnrn a I a urn uKnnM nnf Kn uatnniuliArl fn upp Gen. Taylor defeated in these debatable States, upon which this election hangs. As yet, there is barely time to recover the lost and losing groundWe shall see, however, what the next few weeks will bring about. If Gen. Taylor is destined to lose this election, he will have been sacrificed by the same narrow politicians and journals, by the same vicious and anti-American journalism, by the same miserable policy which has so often sacrificed Henry Clay, and ruined his prospects for the last quarter of a century. We have here disclosed the secret of Henry Clay's failures heretofore, and now a few weeks will eliow how tar the same causes will have operated in the case ot the Hero of Buena Vista. Marine Affairs. Lat-ncm.?A beautiful pilot boat, called the Mary Catherine, measuring 03 tons, will be launoed, at 8 o'clock this morning, from the yard of Messrs. Westervelt and M'Kay. City Intelligence. The City Yeiterda*.-The city, yesterday, presented* a very lively appearance, and the weather was delightfUi The streets were thronged with pedestrians, and all nature wore a gay and cheerful aspect. All the Sabbath routines were gone through with, and quietness prevailed. There were less pleasure-seekers going to the country, which materially changed the appearance ot the city. But, with all this outside snow of cheerfulness, there are, in almost every street in this great city, scenes of the deepest sorrow, misery and shame. In the Bowery, not far from Houston street, is a den, which, on the Sabbath, is filled with gamblers; and one under the patronage of the city government acts as doorkeeper. This is often the place into which the unwary are enticed and robbed, by gaming, of all they possess. On Sunday night the bouse is closed, through fear that the authorities might learn of their proceedings; but during the whole dav. it is a scene of revelry and vice. About six o'clock in the evening, they emerge from their infemons den, but to eTade suspicion, lyariabiy leave singly. As there is a law against such proceedings on the Sabbath, it would be well for the police, stationed in that quarter, to look out for those who thus, in violation of all law and decency desecrate the Sabbath day. In every section of the city there are those who, steeped in tbe vale of adversity, feel the keen pangs of hunger and of cold, and who are passed unheeded by those who know not of the circumstances. Rf.sci*ed from Daowsisn.?A lad named William Alt. was rescued from drowning, at the foot of Clinton street, yesterday, by a policeman of the 7 th ward. Fire.?A Are broke out last night, about midnight, in the cellar of No. 3 Whitehall street, which was filled with cotton. The fire companies being promptly on the spot, extinguished the llames before mueh damage was done. Tiif. Staffs.?Of late, the regnlationsof the stages passing through Broadway, have been very materially and satisfactorily amended. Now they are not permitted to stop below Tenth street, except to take up and put down passengers?neither to leave the right hand side of the street. Several of the drivers have recently been fined for violating this rule, which has completely set the long complained of matter aright. There is not now tbe danger in crossing the street, as when they drove recklessly on, without regard to the regulation, then not enforced. Common Covncil.?There will be a meeting of both branches of the Common Council at the usual hour this evening. Uskwown Ma* Fovkd ?1The coroner held an inquest yesterday, at the Alms House, on the body of an unknown man. found floating In the dock, at the foot of Vesey street. He appeared to be about 35 years of age. dressed in blue coarse pantaloons, and blue roundabout, and had been, apparently in the water but a short time. Yer-dict. came to his death by drowning. Police Intelligence. The " Horrible Depravity" Cole.?Under this heading, in Saturday's Herald, we noticed the arrest of a French Canadian woman, calling herself Mrs. Ponier, alias Mintz, together with her two young and handsome daughters, who have been encouraged to prostitute themselves, at a tender age, by their base and wicked mother. This wretch of a mother, kept a liquor and segar shop, on the corner of Laignt , and Canal streets, which was. in fact, a mere blind for the more easy method of receiving the money thus gained by the infamy of her own daughters. It was astonithing to witness the excitement created on the arrest of these pretty girls among certain gentle- | men, who were regular visiters to this depraved place, and the singular interest taken by a certain Alderman, who. we understand, is to be brought forward to prove good character on the part of Mrs. Ponier and her daughters. If such is the case, we trust he may succeed. but the evidence, at present,is quite the reverse. Counsel has been procured for these girls, by some of their influential admirers, and the result was that, en Saturday afternoon, a writ of habeas corpus was granted by Judge Edmonds, and the girls, Marie and Victoire De Laney. were brought before that Judge, for the purpose nf Atiteinifiir that* HianhaMa A n a*<*iimAnf ted to the Judge in favor of their release from custody, when |Mr. Stewart, the efficient clerk of police, replied, setting forth the evil that might poesibly occur, and the ends of justice be frustrated, if. in this instance, the Judge should discharge them frdtn custody, as they were detained merely on the single commitment for examination, by Justice Lothrop ; the testimony against the prisoners was only just commenced, nor was there any part of the evidence complete ; therefore he begged they might be remanded, to allow the committing magistrate time to finish the case. Judge Kdmonds. upon the statement of Mr. Stewart, coincided with him exactly, and at once remanded the two interesting young French girls to prison, to await tbe further action of tbe magistrate. This case is a dli grace to the morals of the city, and we are shocked to see men who stand high in tbe community, upholding and backing such infamous depravity. Attempt at Rape.?Officer Wm H. Stephens, of the lower police, arrested, yesterday, a man by the name of Frederick A. Heath, on a warrant issued by Justice Timpson, wherein he stands charged with attempting to violate the person of a young woman, by the name of Margaret Blake. It seems. Heath keeps a boardingbouse at No. IOC Greenwich street, and the complainant was one of his boarders, where the outrage complained of was perpetrated. Justice Timpson held him to ball In $1,000 to answer the charge. Robheit on iht Fire J'ointi ? Officers Duffy and Watson. of the Sixth Ward police, arrested, yesterday, Charlotte Wiley, Margaret Mitchell, and John Mahon. on suspicion of robbing a Jersey man. by the name of Henry Sloan, of $260. while in a house of disrepute, located at No. 130 Anthony street. On the arrest of the acoused parties. $116 of the money was recovered. Grand Larceny.?A black fellow, called George Smith, was arrested, yesterday, on a charge of robbing a man by the name of Nelson Thome of $26 and a watch.? Justice Lothrop committed him to prison for trial Jtrrest of Supposed Burglars.?I'nder the directions of his Honor the Mayor, the following men, said to be i cunning burglars, were arrested yesterday : Joe Mur- i ray. Charles Garrets. Bill Darlington, alias" Bristol Bill." and John Clarkson. alias Clark. On the arrest of these men, who were charged with burglary, several pieces of broadcloths, together with some cutlery, which are said to be the proceeds of various burglaries, were found In their possession. The officers likewise discovered a lot of well-finished burglar's tools. The accused parties were all looked up in the Chief's office, to await a further beating. Movement* of Individual*.

Broadway ; also, several other distinguished tnen. mentioned in yesterday's HrrnU. The latest accounts from Hon A. H. Stephens, of I Georgia, state that bis wounds are healing, and that be is doing well. Judge Cone has been committed on , a charge of an u assault, with intent to murder." and was admitted to bail in tbe sum of ten thousand dollars. Mr Stephens aljects positively to having Judge Cone prosecuted Ciumk Our readers will doubtless I recollect the circumstances attending the atrocious ' murder of an old lady named Cooper, committed near : Parkton, in Baltimore county, and the arrest of , f evradt Vintner on the charge of being tbe murderer, I followed by tbat of Paul Kunele. a resident of York, r* . as an accessory.

Pabk Thkatrk.?Ths new anil beautiful grand b*i* let of ' Kunt rnlila," which attracted tunh large aulUn ecu last weel' . will be repeated,forthe seventh tune,thin entiling. The splendid manuer In which it bat) been put on the stage evidences the good taste and judgment of the Stage Manager Mr Barret, and at once shows that the proprietor Mr Hamblin is determined no matter what may be the expense, to rater well tor the aniuai mart of the patrona of Old Drury. The ent? rtainuiei te will commeore with the laughable farce ot 'Our Mary Anne "In which Messrs Dawson, Chapman. Stafford K.etcher ..ud Mils Klynn will sustsin the principal characters. We arc informed that the second tier of boxes, which Is as comfortable as that of the first, is arranged fur families, and that those who may select this part of the house will be as comfortably provided for as those of the lower tier. The drearer, decorations and other properties used in therepr e -en tat ion of 'lispieralda,1' are of the most costly and gorgeous description, and.from the flattering reception it met with Met week, we hay little doubt but that it will draw immense assemblages during the present week. Bowkrv Thkatrk.?For lome time past we have had the great tragedians of the day, Forrest at the Broadway, and Ilamblin at the Tark. sustaining many of the leading characters of S'hakspeare, Sheridan Knowles. and others and will Ilk ly, in a short time, have the pleasure of seeing the distinguished tragedian. Mr. Macready, who. we are informed, will shortly appear at one or other of our theatres. We are pleased to see a return to the legitimate drama, as it is not only a source of amusement but of great instruction and literaiy improvement. In keeping with this, Mr Hamblin, who is a gr< at favorite, and who, in reading and figure, is inferior to no actor in bis line, opens this evening at the Old Bowery, in the beautifully drawn character of Hamlet, in Shakspeare's play of that name. Added to this, there will be presented a new ballet, winch has been played with great success in London, called'The Abduction of Nina." in which Signora Ciocca, Signer Neri. and U W. Smith, with a full and effective ballet company will appear. This, no doubt, will attract one of those monster houses for wnicn tne Bowery i? famed. Bioidwii Theatre.?During the past four week* this theatre baa l>een crowded every night, to see the great American tragedian, Kdwin Forrest, in hie round of tragic characters. His success must be a source of great gratiflcation to himself, and of much Jiroflt to the management. This evening, anjattractve bill, of no less interest, is presented for the amusement of those who patronise the Broadway Theatre. Mr Collins, whose character as an Irish comedian of the first rank, and who alone stands next in eminence to the lamented Tower, makes his appearance in the elegant oomedy of ''The Irish Ambassador," and the farce of "Teddy, the Tiler." Besides the excellent qualities possessed by Mf. Collins as a comedian, he is. in edition to this, one of the best vocalists, in his line, in the country. Who that has heard him sing "The Bonld Soldier Boy," and "The Widow Maohree," that will resist hearing him again. He throws such life and soul into every character he undertakes, and he so happily Introduces into each piece he plays in. a song exactly sailed to tbe character he is representing, that all passes off with great pleasure and amusefnent to the audience. Burton's Theatre.?The graceful and elegant Lehman family, and that most astonishing performer Mr. Charles Winther, have been delighting the frequenters of this elegant theatre with their beautiful performances during the past week, and will continue to do bo for two or three nlghta more. There ia a peculiar grace in the French pantomime which we have never teen equalled by any other nation. The usual crane, practical jokes of the English, Harlequin, Colomhine and fantaloon, are replaced by the refined and truly witty doings cf Dechalumeau,Vol au Vent, Boreas, and the other inimitable characters of the very amusing comic pantomimes of the French. To-night the first act of the "Sylphide," the very favorite pantomime of" Dechalumeau," and the tight rope exercises of that model of manly gTace, Charles Wlnther. will form the entertainments in which the ballet company will appear; and the new burletta of the " Woman Hater," with Mr. Lynne in the principal character, will make up the bill. The evening's performances are to be for the benefit of M'Ue Adelaide, and we are sure the house will be crowded. Mr. Burton is succeeding admirably in Chambers street: he has proved himself to be as good a theatrical tactician as he is an actor, and the prospeot is that his house will do an extraordinarily good business all thiB season: for he is prepared to bring forward novelty after novelty in rapid succession. In consequence of repeated requests, " Dombey k. Son," with the original cast, will be repeated again during the present week. This will come in well after the Lehmans have gone; meanwhile, all ought to see the elegant performances of the talented troupe. National Theatre ?The extraordinary run of patronage which this elegant house receives, night after night, week after week, and month after month, leaves but little for us to say regarding it. Never, probably) has such a perfect change for the better been effected in such a short space of time, at any house. Trevious to Mr. Cbanfrau assuming the managerial functions, the Chatham, as it was then called, was, indeed, but a poor affair, but his management has put quite a different face on affairs, and it is now a first-rate house, most beautifully and luxuriously fitted up, patronised ! by our most respectable citizens, and pro-eminent among all our places of public amusement for the exI cellence of the entertainments given at it; in fact, it has become the favorite resort of a large portion of onr theatre-going community. Of the admirable manner | in which the local drama is got up here we need not speak, as it is a matter of universal fame throughout the Union. Far and near Chanffau's Mose has been heard of, and in almost all the large cities dramas of a similar kind havo been got up. Chanfrau, however, is the great original, and those who wish to see the character, in full perfection, ought not to omit visiting the National. To-night, the bill will be most interesting: it will consist of the romantic military drama of " Military Execution " in the course of which Vlgneron's celebrated picture of the execution will be illustrated by a tableau ; the "Mysteries and Miseries" will come next, and the farce of the " Captain's not aMiss" will conclude the bill. We would again urge those who take ladies cither to secure seats during the day. or go quite early in the evening, as the house is soon filled up after the doors are once opened. Nidlo'i, Astor Tlai e.?The success of this beautiful and fashionable place of amusement, during the WO cf vanV was onmmunonsaia ?UVi to a. performances which were nightly offered. Mr. Vandenhoff and Messrs. T. and H. I'laciUe. gentlemen who have no superiors in their line of acting, appeared in several of their moei popular character*. to the unbounded delight of the patrons of that establishment. For this evening the popular comedy of >( London Assurance'' will be offered, in which the gentlemen above named will appear; in conjunction with this, Isabel Dickinson, who has acquired great celebrity as Lady Gay Spanker, and a powerful cast. The comic sketch ofthe " Secret" will also be performed, it is unnecessary to speak of the capacities of the performers at Niblo's, for the fact of an engagement at that place is sufficient to satisfy every one acquainted with the enterprising manager, that they are of the first cast. To those living down town a more pleasant evening coul<} not be spent than at this quiet and beautiful theatre, and the entertainments are of suoh a character that the feast cannot but be received with acclamations of delight. The theatre is going ahead, and Its already great popularity is fast Increasing. Mk. Hat-tost. the celebrated pianist and vocalist, who has lately given several most successful and amusing musical entertainments, will give another one of the same kind, this evening, at the Stuyvesant Institute, and his programme presents quite an array of attractions. In addition to the descriptive oomie , scenes in which he has been so much applauded, Mr. Hatton will lianmn. of J J ? 0 ? v. .u? ??ivvt*^vu uiu ovn swags of Dibdin. and will alto introduce some of the classical piano forte music of the eminent composer, Mendelssohn. By thus commingling the amusing and comic singing with the more serious and classical style of music. Mr. Hatton has provided an entertainment which will please all. He himself is a most thorough musician, and admirable vocalist: every concert ne has given has been successful, and not one dissenting voice has been heard to contravene the universal opinion of the press, and public generally, that his entertainments are the most amusing of the kind that have been given for a leng time in New York. Csmsskll's Minstbels.?1These extraordinarily fine singers and admirable musleians have achieved an immense name and reputation, during the present series of concerts, in this city ; and in order to, if possible. improve their completeness of organisation, the manager, has engaged those three most popnlar vocalists, the Messrs. Henry, l harles and J. Bishop, who will, this evening, make their appearance; and a selection of new and beautiful music, ooroposed expressly for this company, will be Introduced on the ocoaslon. These songs have never been sung by any other oompaay, and, we doubt not, will prove most popular. The crowded and fashionable audiences who havo hitherto patronised this elegant band of minstrels, are proofs of the high stand they have gained in this community; liu lurn luuurr eiions an meir put will, no doubt, secure them a continuance of thia liberal patronage Mri.oor.oM.?The Ethiopian minstrels who are now performing at this very favorite house, master strong; no lers than eight talented artists compose thia band, and each one is a perfect musician, vocalist and aotor Ethiopian minstrelsy is. indeed, becoming a distinct branch of amusement; and each new band, as it appears. is better organized than previous ones. First rate dancing is also a requisite in a good F.tbiopian performer?nnd such a dancer is attached to this present company. A visit to the Meiodeon cannot fail to please. CiiaisTv s MiMirn.i.?This famous band, under the management of the Napoleon of negro minstrelsy, will commence their performances at Mechanics' Hall, nest Monday evening. Windsor ThvaraicsLs.?We are informed that the private theatrical performances which are to take place at Windsor ( aatle. are now finally arranged.? They are to begin on the Thursday after Christmas, and are to be continued on the four Thursdays sue- , oeeding. The first piece will be "King Lear," whfoh will be followed by "The Merchant of Venice," "All in the Wrong, and "The Stranger." The entertainments on 1 the la?t night will consist of Mr. Jerrold's play of "The Housekeeper," with a fares of Mr. Kenney's, probably "Sweethearts and Wives The whole is to be ] under the management of Mr. Charles Kean. and the | actors will he picked men from the different I.ondon \ c> mi snies. so that the plays may be rait as well us ; possible. .

(laving lately passed a few weeks upon Martha's 1 Vineyard, I liiul it to be increasing in interest and importance. There is, in all probability, no place on the New Knulund coast so welllitted, bv nature, ! lor a fashionable ami useful watering-pi,ire as the nuietand pleasantly situated village of l.dgartown. j It commands one ol the prettiest harbors in the i world, with clear ami transparent waters for bathing: and ponds, creeks, coves and channels, filled with a rich variety offish. In one hour's time, .1 had the satisfaction to pull in six beautiful blue j fish, one of which weighed ten pounds, to sav j nothing of the rascals that gave me the slip, fowling can also be enjoyed in all its" sweet varietie," boih bv sea and land. Old-Town plains (as they are called) lie just back of the village, and are covered with wings during the autumnal season. As lor the people, a more courteous and kind have not "pitched their tents" on this side of the Atlantic. And the ladies?every body knows that the Vineyard and Nantucket are famous on their account. We have seen beautiful women elsewhere, but this is the only place where we ever saw no women but what were beautifnl. On this account, some (Tom Moore, for instance!) have supposed lhat the Garden of Kdcn was anm<?nf lv lnrntfH h^rr*. \V?? hnvo not fnllu up" our mind on this point: however, this we do believe, that wefe Eve, whom Milton calls "the fairest of all her daughters," to visit this place at some particular seasons, Bhe would more than find her match. At a short distance from the village, is the beautiful catamia grove, where the young ones and the old ones, by scores and hundreds, congregate from "Dan to Bershcba," for their chowders, clam-bakes, Arc. " There lads an' lasses do eonTene, To feist an' dance upo' the green. An' there sic brav'ry may be seen, As will confound ye, An' gar ye glour out baith your e?n At a' arourd ye." But 1 commenced not this sketch fot the sake of promulgating general ideas, but to give some account of a voyage to Gay Head. It was about noon when, six in a company, we started in an open sail-boat from Kdgartown harbor, to examine, for ourselves, this most curious of American natural curiosities. We were composed of a clergyman, a physician (resident of Conception, South America), an embryo lawyer, an otficer of the U. S navy, a young philosopher, and Jack Vale?a little, you perceive, of everything, and a good deal of some. Hardly a breath of air was stirring, so we sung and pulled away. The water was as pure as crystal, and the clean white bottom was clearly perceptible. I dropped a line, and in a moment felt a tremendous twitclt. " full away, Jack," cried the clergyman, who acted the part of skipper on our passage up; " there's something .on t'other end of your line !" And who says we didn't pull J It was a noble shark?a line welj-fed fellow : hut he didn't mnke un his mind tn <?iine" our company, not he: he cnmc to the surface, and then was "oph,"?line, hook, and sinker. Thus ended our tiehinjr, for that day. At sunset we found ourselves three miles above Holmes' Hole haibor, on the upper shore of West Chop. The surge ran very high, but we were very hungry, antf a tew rods lrom the shore we espied a little brown farm-house. The philosopher felt more rejoiced than though he had got sight of the comet ; the lawyer thought it a clear case ; Uncle Sam's son looked as grave as the President when he has a vacancy to fill, and our clerical friend himself began to feel a hankering after the Hesh. But how to get ashore !? " that's the rub." But oar boat had a thick bottom. A company of us leaped on shore, and proceeded to the house, whilst the rest kept the boat from grumbling. Here we procured a pail of milk, tour bowls, two tin cups, six spoons, and some white bread, to say nothing of a big lantern and a pail of water. I have eaten many a meal, from New Orleans "all along sho're," but never came so near killing myself before. After tea we hauled out from shore about an eighth of a mile, to anchor for the night. The doctor commanded to heave out anchor at the bows, but the minister, bringing to mind, doubtless, Paul's company, who hove out three anchors at the stern, and wished for day, declared that the anchor ought, and should be hove out astern! Fortunately, there were two anchors in the boat, so each had his way. We then turned the ballast stones soft side un. and laid down for repose, the heavens above and the earth beneath us. The clergyman kept the first watch, and sung us to sleep with soine very line hymns. As this was the last day of August, our , watch awaked us at a few minutes before twelve, and we all joined in singing the " last rose of summer." As it in kind return, the wind immediately sprung up, to which we gave our sails, and filled away. IIow joyously danced our little craft, on that starlight night, over the infant waves. The light and darkness were mixed > in just thut proportion that makes everything j look grand. As the noble vessels, with their hugc? piles of canvass, passed us, they seemed like the remembrance of childhood scenes, darkly bright. Just as our friend, the philosopher, ana ourself, began to grow spiritual, a conversation sprung up betwixt the lawyer and officer. "I say, Esquire, let's fish!" "Pooh! fish by night, that's nonsense." Nonsense!" cried our United States friend, who, by the way, was a native of gallant Denmark, "oh", thunder! fish much better in the night, 'cause the fish can't see the hook!" On we dashed, and arrived at Cay Head just as the sun was rising. (lay Head at sunrise, and Cay Head at sunaet, I tell you, is the most beautiful place on the American coast. It is most glorious! But in order to give any idea cf its glory, we must go into particulars. It is visited, we should think, hv thousands yearly. At the Light House Mansion are kent the honks: thn last w#? saw uruo i,?...i..j i>y Gov. Biiggs, and lady, and contained some of the greatest mimes in our country. It is the western extremity of Martjia's Vineyard. The dills consist of clays of three colors, viz: white, blue, and red: s^nds of two colors, white and yellow, approaching almost to green, and lignite, black; besides these, there are various combinations of lignite and clays which form beautiful shades of brown, gray, Arc. These substances are arrange d in inclined strata, and were, doubtless, formerly in j>ro^ order, but the action of ra ins a nd w$ves have somewhat commingled the colors, although from I the sea their order still seems well nigh perfect. These strata are eocene or older tertiary, and answer well to the descriptions given by Mr. Webster of the plastic clay of Alum Bay, in the Isle of Wight. The most conspicuous of all the substances is blood red clay, colored, in all probability, by the red oxide of iron. There is a blue clay^ of a grayish tendency, which, combined with lia^te and other colored clays, frequently gives a tinfjfende. In a pale green sand are found the gr?^^^varietiesof organic remains; this is tnterstra^H to some extent with the clays, principally with the red. The cliffs of lignite are especially rruiiujr ?1 IIUIILT, KIIU U1C CUIIIPUHl'U 01 IWU C1US8C8, , carbonaceous and brittle woody lignite. This lat- t ter contains iron pyrites, of which I obtained con- t siderable. The osseous conglomerate is also very i interesting: it is olten hard, but when broken e brings to view bones, teeth of animals, A:c. Much * of this conglomerate is composed of quartz. There J are four strata of red clay; one of red clay, with h lignite, and one of red ferruginous sand ; three of ? white sand ; two of white clay ; one of white and u yellow clay, with lignite : two of gray clay : one of light gray, almost white, clay and sand ; one of yellowisn ferruginous conglomerate and sand, the ^ bottom osseous; one of yellowish and dark brown ' clay ; one brown clay, with lignite ; one brown T clay and sand ; one blue clay, with lignite : one ? green [sand: ^one of lignite and clay; and two i, others, soil and diluvium. These strata are from 11 lit) feet to several rods wide. They run nearly e northwest and southeast, and dii> from 30 f' tleg. to 50 dfg. northeust. The length _ of 41 the whole section is not Inr from a mile. ?' <M the organic remains I obtained but few s|*?cimens, and those 1 came away and h forgot to bring with rue. I was favored, tl however, bv my distingnished friend J. P, a l'.gq., of Kdgartown, with the examination of ei his beautiful collection, and find that he has one 01 shark's tooth of most extraordinary dimensions. Jj It is probably the largest in existence. We advise all our literary friends, who visit the Vineyard, to * call on Mr. P, lie has one of the best colleclions in the htate, and is always ready to oblige * all with an inspection. The Indian tradition in b< regard to this cliff", is very beautiful. They say, fa that on n time, long ages ago, a hostile band of In- ci dialte, landing their canoes on the lower part of P' the island, drove the former inhabitant! towards the setting sun. till at length they thought they had forced them into the mighty waters; but lo ! while ci yet iney were gasping in the wave?, they felt the * WHters to recede, mid the land to arise lienenth *? them, and ere morning dawned this gigantic cliff ,A pfeod above the waves, which they have ever , since inhabited. There is a grea' deal ot poetry ? in this, hut in my opinion more truth than poetry, u Is it not perfectly consistent with known princi- wi |>les, end is not some clue here afforded to the u; geologist, desirous to decypher its origin ? We ihink so. In the afternoon it blew a gale: we, nevertheless, determined to go on boat-board, and ' under the skilful management of l>r. we ?) reached Kdgartown harbor after a run of four T| lours, dry as Nantucket biscuit, much to the dm- H ;onifiture of many of the old "seadogs," who ex- *i a cted that the sharks would have us and the mer- 1? nil ids our boat, or at least half honed so, so suae w vere they that it was innoastble for fresh water ailors to go to (lay-Head in a tail boat.

We copy the following from the Hou? uu j cir^Toj'ii vi buo QiDt un. i nt report lately cirmlated on the frontier, and which we noticed about wo months ago, that the Camanohes and dtber prairie ribes intended to commence hostilities at the close eC lummer, is corroborated by many circumstances. The eport was first derived from the settlements of tba pp*r Trinity, but was subsequently confirmed by net-sage sent by one of the Camanche chiefs on the Colorado to Col. Bell. It appears from a communication in the Austin Democrat, and signed by Lieut. Likens, dated Camp Llano, August 6tb. that a>arty of Ciimancbes made an attack on tha isnip on the 31st ult., and stole thirty-five horses, in attack was also made on a German soUleaent on the Llano, on the night of the 2d inst., and everal bones were stolen from the settlement by 1? liacs.
