The nomination of Mr. James Brooks as the "Taj lor candidate lor the sixth congressional district in this city, has caused a great deal of conversation and agitation in political circles, especially in the district for which he has teen nominated. To assert that it has given satisfaction to the friends of Gen. Taylor would be an untruth. It has done so Mich thing, but, on the contrary, has given offence to them ; and the reasons are obviouB. Lode before the whig aonvention met in Philadelphia, Gen. Taylor was nominated for the Presidency by the independent thinking and independent acting men of all parties?whigs, democrats, and even Native Americans. That convention took him up, and gave him the nomination, not because he was a whig, or converted to whig principles?which he is not, even to this day?but , Because ms brilliant military achievements in Mexico, and his intellectual qualifications and in- ' dependence of character, made him popularjwith the masses in every part of the country. Previous to his nomination he was abused and vilified in every possible way, by the wire-pullers andpseudo ' leaders, and politicians of the whig party, leBt he would be nominated ; but no sooner had he received the endorsement of that convention, as veil as the nomination at several previous conventions and meetings, in various parts of the country, than these same parties turned round, and in whom they had previously seen nothing , but imperfection, they, after his nomination, observed all the qualifications that dignified the father of his country, and made him the first man of the age. One of the most prominent of these revilers of Gen. Taylor was the gentleman recently nominated as member of congress fram the sixth congressional district. There is, however, another point which we wish to reler to, while writing on this subject, and that is, the threats thut the whig politicians and wire-pullers have been muttering for sometime past, viz.: that if General Taylor, _r.? i -t?. -l- ?? ?L.. .1 jiiit'i 111b rirunuu, uu uui carry uui wiini iney choo?e to call w hig principles?including ofcourse the very important one, that the offices under the general government must be given to the friends and adherents of the successful candidate?they would treat him as they did Captain Tyler, and make him a political scape-goat for the remainder of his natural life. This is what the clique of office-seekers in this city, pretending to be the friends of General Taylor, mean by carrying out whig principles. They surrounded General Harrison when he was elected, with the view ol carryTying out the same purposes, and actually worried lnm to death. They kill >d him, physically, and then fastened on Captain Tyler, whom they killed politically, because he would not lend himself to carry out their dictates in regard to the offices under his rontrol. They wish to repeat the same exj>eriment with Gen. Tiylor, and the little clique in this city have nominated Mr. Brooks, and hope to elect him, as their organ for obtaining office, or the channel through which executive favors will flow to them. T 'nder the circumstances, therefore, it is not surprising that the independent friends of General Taylor, the men who really nominated him for the high office of President of the United States, feel annoyed and indignant, that the ancient and bitter reviler and detractor of General Taylor, is nominated a member of congress to support his adminif tration when he shall have been electD..? ?L _ 1 i t . . ?ru i>ui uifir is auunaance 01 time between this and the period for holding our election, the seventh of November next, for them to reconsider this nomination, which they very reason, ably think, i) allowed to stand, will injure inaerially Gen. Ta ylor's prospects, so far as that disi net and ibe whole city is concerned. The real fri< nds of General Taylor?those who have ad- I he red to him through good report and evil report, ' m Heel hurt at seeing such a candidate on the 1 ticket which they will be called upon to vote for ?>n tb? n \> nth ol November next, and, a* we have alr<; Ay slown.with good reason. Why not, therefor*-, let them take the matter into their own hands, and nominate another candidate in lieu of Mr. Brook a. There are plenty of good capable men in that district,the nomination of any of whom would , In mure sa'isfsrtorv tlmn Tif/?^lro in I General Taylor's independent friends and admirers. His nomination will be looked upon Jik? wise by the Irish voters as a sanction by the 1 friends of General Taylor of the course which Mr. 1 Jlrr>?>ks thought proper to pursue towards them 1 during the agitation at Vauxhail Garden, Borne time since, w hen the t yea of all were directed to 1 the men who were exerting themselves to free ' heir native l.uiii from a slavery that has scattered J them, as the Jews have l?een scattered, over every 1 ' country in Christendom, and rendered it a charnel i * hoii?e among the nations of the earth.

An admirer of jour fin* and favor*'! country, and of your energetic and enterprMDjr people, although inywlfa thorough" llritisht-r," 1 venture to addrt>? jt u. First, Irt me express my wi*h. not ?nly for a Round and ecduriug peace lietx'cn ttiin nation and ours but fu.-tUer lor the growth.and complete ripening of the fullest understanding and the most cordial good feeling bttwccn tbc two people, and between their respective governments Next, I take the liberty of thus Inviting your attention. for the purpose of asking why it is that the pren ut means of public information* in hncland do not accomplish more toward* bringing the mn? of our pt-opie better acquainted with native American literature, 1 oratory, and men of letter*? I say the " mas*," be- ; cause no doubt our upper classes can command from [ present sources, the means for any Information they may desire. From tliem some information to the world j may emanate Many Fpecimecs of criticism from th?s? | qu rim towrver. hiTr bMs In > toor whirb do*8 n?t comport with Justice to such of your men. women, books. and speeches, as it has been my lotto meet here. Unconnected with any of tbe machinery and modes by which this information might be promoted and circulated, 1 feel unable and therefore do not assume, to point ont how such could bent be accomplished ; but as a ' constant reader." of books, and men, both ancient and modern, and of tbe current Journals nnd period! cals. I feel the want, and so venture to intrude the above query, and to invite the desired meansof Information. It has been much the c.a?e, hitherto, that our informants bare first created and then cherished an impression. that a native literature is deficient in America and that her eloquence is of an inferior charaoter It will perhaps be said that we hare long had before us. and alee. amply noticed, tbe writing of Washington Irving. Cooper. Pre?cott, and some few other American writers, as we'l as the speeches of Webster, Clay. andCalhcnn They, however. are but few of many instance* of brillancy and merit, and most of those are cases of persons holding official distinctions. Therefore, we feel that they may be brought before us, somewhat on account of their position. 1 am led to these reflections at this time, and to the request made ab. ve by several Instances, both of I enlightened, useful, and pleasing Amerioan writings which have very lately passed under my eye. and also j by some specimons of powerful and brilliant oratory ' from Americans here. Several reports of speeches itieiy oeiiverea in America. nave also lountt their way | to this country. The vigor. freshness, and appropriate point, both of these writing" and faying*, create j a thirst for the enjoyment and the benefit of more of the like; and I while, from prejudice or ignorance, our 1 great journal* hardly ever give us glimpse* of your national eloquence or literature, we are driven to some , more efficient and honest mean* of information. Of the instance* to which I allude, let ine name the speech of Mr. Winthrop, the Speaker of the House of Repre- j Mutative*, made on the Fourth of July last, on the ; inauguration cf the Washington Monument. That specimen of manly and statesmanlike oratory, has been circulated to some extent in England, and been i justly regarded as a model of fine speaking The comprehensive review of the biography of the great man, ; and thehi*tory of hi* country, must have been listened to with admiration ; whilst the deduction* *o conclusively drawn from both, and the recommendation* so i emphatically submitted by the speaker to his countrymen. must command the sympatny and attract the cordial interest of the inhabitants of all countries. It combines, indeed, the judgment of the statesman, the wi dom of the philosopher, and the good feeling of ; the philanthropist Great Britain has also become familiar with the speech of your talented oompatriot, Mr. Lester, (your late Consul at Oenoa) delivered here ! at our reoent Literary Fund anniversary festival. A more eloquent, elegant, and appropriate speeoh. was perhaps never uttered on such an occasion; and delivered as it was, not only extemporaneously, but no doubt literally on the spur of the moment, it evinces a cordiality of neart and clearness of head, with which vb F.ntrHstt *nnl H toao* So wTth Rome friends, (both English and foreign) on a recent Sunday, joining a congregation of a thousand persons in one of our new and beautiful metropolitan parish churches, it was our lot to find ourselves addressed by a clergyman, a stranger, in a style of earnest and classical eloquence which attracted our I sincerest attention, and Induced tbe inquiry who the ' gentleman might be. We were Informed that he was an American clergyman, the KeT. James Richmond, of | Rhode Island. His sermon was delivered entirely ex- < ttmporaneously. and a fine specimen of pulnit oratory it was, breathing a spirit of devout Christianity, and of earnest ministration. Indeed, it appeared to all of the party to be a happy embodying of that whioh we may suppose to have been the matter and manner of the preaching intended when it was Bald, ''Go teaoh the nations." I mention this last case the more particularly, because I had never before (that I am aware of.) heard an American clergyman preach in one of our parish churches. Now, sir. what 1 would come to is this : these Instances make men here feel that we ought to be, and wish that we may be. far better acquainted with what you on the other side, really are, and what you are j doing, learning, and teaching Depend on it. that no- j thing would better destroy all jealousy, and promote , fraternization. We know that you are thriving, and , heartily wish you success. Officers of State and official assemblies may entertain territorial jealousies, and preach frats; but our practical many admire the enterprise ani industry wbUa we beliave to be I universal with you; and although we feel our over-heavy burthens, and envy the lightness of yours, yet " the I people"' do not really feel jealous of your prosperity. The request, then, that some of us make to you and yours Is. to accomplish some mode of letting us be informed from yourselves, by yourselves, of yourselves and your doings, and not leave so important a mission as tbe interpretation of your amply-grown, yet still growing country to the pert coquetry of contracted coteries, and the crabbed crustiness of cosmopolite conventionalists. 1'our ob?t ser't, ANGLICANUS. i This is one of many letters which have recently , Deen addressed to us irom honest and intelligent \ men in Great Britain, and it reveals a state of j things which we shall first describe and then propose a remedy for. No American ever travelled in England, without being astonished at the enormous ignorance that prevail&there, respecting this country, among all classes. Very few Englishmen, unless they have travelled in the United States, have the remotest idea of the character of our people, or their institutions. This can easily be accounted for. The mass of British subjects cannot read at all; and if thfy could, they are too poor to buy books, or take expensive English newspapers. The opinions of the middle and upper classes are formed almost entirely by those who conduct the daily press, whose editois have, from the beginning, either from malignity, or misapprehension, misrepresented the resources, tne institutions, the progress, and the spirit of the T'nited States. Seventy years ago, the proclamation of a new republic, by a comparatively feeble and insignificant |>eople. aroused the attention of the world. Chatham, Fox, Sheridan, and Burke, who dis. tinguished themselves by their liberal principles, foresaw the destiny of this country, and foretold its influence upon the governments of Europe. Hitherto, English journals and travellers, have scouted the idea that our repabhc was putting forth any considerable influence upon the govern merits of Europe. But this game is over. It can no longer be played with success. It is not only now demonstrated that our successful experiment at republican institutions has had a very strong influence in undermining the monarchical principles of the old world, but that the war of the revolution, and the confederation of I7"<3, were among the exciting causes of those stil ling scenes which so soon after introduced the first republic of France. The tendency of our example to stimulate every republican impulse on the continent, lias always been perceived by the Metternichs and Guizots of Europe. Bui in England, more than in any other country, the upholders of that colossal despotism have unceasingly and malignantly misrepresented and calumniated us. To speak with respect, or even forbearance, of Ameiican republicanism, they judge to be tantamount to an approval of repeal in Ireland, and chartism in Birmingham. And they are light. They are part and parcel of the same spirit. The pallid and hungry wretches who Bwanned on Kenmngton common last May, and the Irish who had been starved into the phren/.y of an ill-digested rebellion, were blindly struggling for the same liberty we gained after seven years iiara iigiiiing. ltepublicanisni is the only remedy that has ever yet been discovered tor the tyranny that has crushed mankind. We might as soon look for an eulogium U|>on Smith O'Urien, or the patriot Meagher, from the London Timet, as tor any cordial and earnest ( commendation of the spirit oi our revolution, or , the inestimable advantages that have flowed from i It. 1 No, it is an idle hope to dream, that, while the , resent state of things la-ts in Kngland, we shall | fairly represented through the Kngliah i>ress. ( \ few of our great men throw the shadow of their ' "ame across the Atlantic; and the speeches of j Jlay, Webster, and Calhoun, are sometimes reprelented. It ai?|>ears from our correspondent, that i Mr. Windirop's oration, has, in some manner or mother, found its way through the IS/itish press; ?nd that the accidental presence of Mr. Lester, at tie f! oyal Literary Fund dinner, gave to liin speech fie great publicity of a brilliant occasion. I!e?ort? is wf re sent there to record all that was said Hid done ; itnd an off-hand, danhing speech, which, i tobttb!)', neither Mr. Lett r, nor any of his <;ouu- ' try men, would have thought it necessary to take the trouble to think out before hand, was looked uj>on as a marvellous |>erformance. Tins arose, probably, from the extreme dullness of other speeches delivered on that occasion. Hut how many of the brilliant things ihnt are said, done, and w ritten in this country, rvpr come to a knowledge of the Hritish people ! One of the great objects of the British press seems to be, to interpose an opaque shieli to the transmission of republican light from theee western shores. With a much higher grade of education, (so called) among the few, and a vastly higher style of literary journalism, there is very little genetal intelligence among any classes in England. It is either a least or a famine. A man either wears a monkish gown at Oxford, or he can't write his name. As it is in the social world, where one class expires with famine that the other may die of surfeit. To show the studied pains the British government itself takes, to keep all intelligence about this country from the mass of its people, it is only necessary to state that, every nerve which money, or power, or legislation, can strain, has been exhausted, to divert the current of emigration to other parts of the world. Exi>ensive and alluring representations are made of the superior advantages of the distant and barbarous colonies of Great Britain; agents without numoer are sent to every village and parish of the home islands, to stir up a spirit of emigration to Australia and \"an Dieman's Land; and the government, with a specious appearance of paternal kindness, oflers its vessels for gratuitous transportation to distant and savage shores, although it not unfrenuentlv lianrwns ?1?nt the same ship which carries out these colonists to their delightful home is partly freighted with criminals, condemned to transportation to the same delightful place. Thus Botany Bay is held up as a terror to the evil-doer by the judge on the one hand, while his neighbor, on the other, is describing, in coultur dt rote, the charms of his new home to the half-starved emigrant. Ard yet, so poorly does this system work, there are more of the oppressed laborers of Great Britain who starve their stomachs for six months, or a year, to get to this country, than can be made to go to all other parts of the world, even by the aid of transportation and banishment. More light i goes from emigrants in this country, and more real information about it to the British islands, than emanates from the entire British press. But we will briefly answer the query of our correspondent?" IIow shall the people of England become better acquainted with America 1" There is but one answer to this question, and it is the one we have given a thousand t:mes during the last ten years. To know a thing, we want the thing itself?not feeble and distorted representations of it. It is so with nations. To know the spirit and institutions of Greece and ltome, we read their literature, and history, and arts, as they come from themselves. Books have nearly ceased irom meir otnce ot representing society ; they are now chiefly confined to purposes of ecience, embellishment, and amusement. The periodical press has usurped their place. The only way, then, that much can be hoped for on the score to which our correspondent alludes, is from the free circulation of American newspapers in England. We venture to say that there are newspapers pnnted in this country, which, if widely circulated in Great Britain, among all classes, would do more towards diffusing a correct knowledge of us, our manners, institutions, literature and progress, than could be gained from all other sources put together. So far as the AttP York Herald is concerned, our readers know that it goes throughout the world. We have subscribers all through the British Islands, and in every Urge town on the continent, from the Emperor of Russia to the great Pius IX. We have some reason to flatter our- : Belves that we have done our share towards a dif- j fusion of the republican spirit among the nations ! of the old world; and, were it not that most of the j journals of this country are enslaved to party, and j ridden by these hacks till their bones come through, i we might have scores of able and influential pa- ; -u -!?' - ? ' jxria, mai wuuiu giuu a greui circulation in ioreign countries. But, bo long as they act as the mere j organs of corrupt parties and cliques, libelling every decent man who does not bow to their standard, or vote their ticket, so long they will have a limited circulation. They are not kept up tor the public, and the public care nothing about them. Every honest and independent man in this country is sick of them?they have lost their influence, and are only kept up by laying large contributions upon parties,who are obligated to club together,to keep them out of the gutter. They are unreliable even for the commonest items of intelligence; and were it not for the independent press, little accurate information of any Kind could be obtained.? Men read independent journals, for they are the , I.. *- .f f.-i- ? - ? I umy irur cajwucihb ui lucis or opinions, ana the only tiuthful reflections of society. Spread the circulation of these journals through Great Britain, and the want our correspondent complains of will no longer exist. But rely upon the corrupt monarchical press of England, or the Fiddlere and Trollopes. and Plckenses she sends us, or, what is very little better, the party presses of America, and the complaint will be made till doomsday. Ohio and Pennsylvania.?From present appearances, there will be a desperate struggle between the rival political parties in the States of Ohio and Pennsylvania, in the election for President, early next monih. The most distinguished orators and stump speakers, on both sides, are engaged to traverse those States, and sound 1 the praises of Generals Cass and Taylor. Pronunciamcntos, from committees and conventions, are being scattered about like leaves in autumn ; j and we woulu not be at all surprised to see the : elections, in those States, more desperately contested than anv that hnvp pv#?r toUn ?k?-? The friends of Taylor lead the van, in the way of stump speaking and pronurvtamento issuing. Texas and New Mexico.?One of the important events of the day likely to produce an excitement, and, it may be, lead to some serious consequences, is the extension of its laws and institutions which, we learn, has just been made by the State of Texas, over the northern portions of Mexico lately acquired by us under the Trist treaty. The governor of Texas, we are credibly informed, has made the appointment of judge over the new territory ; and, already, the new fuuetionary is by this time, no doubt, arrived at his post. At least, we ; are so informed by the St. Louis Republican, which says, thnt Jtid^re Beard, holding the appointment of judge of New Mexico, passed through St. ! Louis, a few days airo, with his family, to enter upon his office. This is a hasty step, and we rather think a premature one on the part ?f the governor of Texas. No one ever seriously believed that all New Mex ico, nr.d the vast country comprehended under that name, w as "Texas," or belonged to Texas, a remote province on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, and far removed, hy impassable barriers and long distances, from these extensive northwestrrn regions. It is true, on paper, these vast regions were represented as bearing the common name o' Texas; and Mr. Polk once, we believe, incidentally put forth such a claim; but no one ever looked upon it in a serious light. Should, however, this bold step, now taken by the governor oj Texas, succeed, the area of slavery will be expanded immensely ; and such an expansion of the institution will now take place, as will, according lo the language and views of Senator Bagby, be highly beneficial to the slave race. We are, however, somewhat apprehensive that this unadvised assertion of jurisdiction will only t< r <1 t<> exasperate the (eelinzs of certain parties in the Nortn, and will be a menus of increasing ll.eir numbers, and of giving greater pungency and ac rimony to the unhappy dissensions springing out u! the mv\ fungltd creed ol the Wihnot proviso. Theatrical antl Mu leal. r.pk Tiimthe.?The programme otlered at the Park theatre, la*t evening waa nuch aa could not fail ta attract a large a?di. not- The principal piecea per* formed were " La Sfogato" ar.d the (rrand ballet " Le Dlahle a Quatra."

Bowery Thf.atre ?Great was the crowd at this hon.ee last evening; and, to line a commercial phrase, tho demand for reats was not only lively, hat, before the end of the first act, could not be supplied. The lower tier of boxes presented a mo?t beautiful appearance. filled as it ??p with ladies; the npper boxes were also completely filled; and as for the pit. it was densely crowded The great attraction of the evening was the play of "Putnam, the Iron Son of '76 " This in

probably the most popular equestrian drama ever produced, and never was it better played than last evening. Mr. Brown, as the gallant general artel most admirably, and his daring feats of equestrianism were done with the greatest skill and ooolness. The celebrated scene of riding down the preoipitous steps and overleaping 'he barrier placed midway, elicited thunders of applause. His good-steed, Gazelle, is indeed an admirably trained animal, and he has every reason to be proud of ber Mr. N B Clarke performed the part of Oneaotah. the Indian chief, in fine style He is an excellent melo-dramatic actor, and fulfilled this part * with much effect Jordan, as the limping tailor, was quite funny; and Wi nans, as the Yankee captain, caused much merriment. The dancing of 8ignora Ciocca and Signor Neri followed the drama, and was as much applaaded as usual; they are most graceful dancers. The beautiful opera of the "Love Spell" was tbe final piece; it went off with much applause. Tonight, we hope to see another orowUed house, as the performances will be for the benefit of Mr Stevens, the efficient stage manager and excellent actor. He sets forth a fine bill, viz: -'Putnam " the farce of'Captain Stevens," and tbe opera of the "Love Spell " Signora Ciocca and Signor Neri will nlsodanoe during the evening. We are glad to see that these most elegant dancers are re-engaged. They are well worth seeing. Broadway Theatre?Grand Opera of "Mari- | tana."?This magnificent production of W. B. Wallace. and wbiota reached above fifty nights repressntation at Drury Lane, was introduoed last night at the Broadway, with a cant of operatic talent, Including the Seguing. Reeve*. Leach. Mrs. Phillips &o , that unquestionably should have attracted a larger audience : but whether from the equivocal app?arance ol the evening, or the unaccountable prejudloe of witnessing the first representation* of operas, the : bouse ?ai but thinly attended. The operatic story of , Don Cjesar de Bazan, is closely identified with the : dramatic representation; and its musical adaptation to the stage, is as popular as it is faithful On the appearance of Mr Reeve*, he apologized for a hoarseness, which was too evident during the subsequent parts, which he. nevertheless, ably sustained. In the duet of " Fairy wand, had I the power." Mr and Mrs. Seguin displayed their powers with usual effect. Mr. Reeves acquired a just tribute to his merits, in the " Farewell, my gallant captain." as he did upon every occRsion. Mrs. H. Phillips and Mr. Leach each made : the most favorable Impression. " A Bol ro de Cadiz," by Celeste and Wiethoff. was very appropriately introduced, and most gracefully performed with castanets. The opera was elegantly and tastefully produced. The dresses, scenery, chorusses, and orchestra, were all new, rich, and brilliant: and 'here la every reason I to hope that this opera, which has been acknowledged ' in F.urope as a rare production of musical taste and science, maybe equally successful upon this continent, where musical talent always finds the true reward Upon a future occasion, we will enter more fully into the merits of this higblv Attractive composition. This piece will be repeated this evening. National Theatre.?The new spectaole drama of i "Ivanboe" was produced at this house last evening in most splendid style. Never have we seen richer dresses or more beautiful scenery on any stage. The ar- 1 mor. and other accoutrements of the knights, are all of the costliest material, and made a most brilliant 1 appearance on the stage. The dresses of the other characters were likewise most beautiful, and take it, I BiK'Kniipr. me general vetting up of the piece is in first rate style The acting in it. too, was fine. Mr. I C hanfrau. as tbe Black Knigbt; Mr. Stark, an Ivanhoe; Jones. Taylor, C. Bnrke Herbert. &c., all filled tbeir parts well. Mr. Stark, especially, pleased us He is a most excellent actor, and, during his present engage- i ment at the National, has been much appreciated by tbe audiences He is always correct in his acting, and is fast rising in his profession. There is another member of this company ef whom, perhaps, we have not spoken ns often a? her merit deserves, we mean Mrs. McLean. Sha has a part in "Ivanhoe" whieh she plays admirably, it is that of Ulrica. She is very effective in it. Mrs McLean is a most excellent actress, and, in tbo pa*-ts where deep feelings are expressed, she shews to much advantage Witness ber performance of Lize. in tbe "Mysteries and Miseries." a performance that can scarcely be excelled; the charaeter is somewhat analogous to that of Nancy Sykes, In "Oliver Twist." in which Miss Charlotte < ushman gained so much fame We think Mrs. McLean's performance of Lize equally thrilling To return, however, to "Ivanhoe." It was completely successful last evening, and will, na doubt, have a long run, as it is decidedly one of the most beautiful pieces ever played in New York. To-night it will be repeated, as will also the "MystTlea and Miseries," and " Mr McOreedy," both of wblch were performed with much erlal lsst evening. Bi ftoi?'? Theatbe?This house was very well filled last night, to see the local dramas of ''Lacy Did Sham Amour." and ''New York in SlUoa " w. ?! ? ,. given a description o! those piece*, whioh. In our mind, present nothing of a moral or Instructive character, but nre principally composed of scenes such as to ax- I cite laughter, but leave no salutary impression on the mind* of the audience. The stock company performed their respective character* well; and when the drama of "New V'ork in Slices'' was concluded. Mr. Johnston *a? called before the curtain, when he briefly returned thank*. The next piece wa* the farce of "John Jones." in which Mr. Burton sustained the character of Guy Goodluck. and by his Inimitable comic acting he kept the house in roars of laughter. Indeed. It would be a difficult matter to And Burton'* equal as a comedian. for he Is excellent in every character h? undertakes When "John Jones'' was ended, loud calls were made for Burton, but to no effect; and the audience separated seemingly pleased with the entertainments of the evening. Niblo's A*tor Pi acf. Tiieatiie.?Mr. Macready appeared last night as Brutus, In "Julius Cicsar."' It was a finished perto?".mlknce' elaborate, chaste, quiet, dignified, grand, natural throughout. The great aetor is annarent in Mr i? ?1 *L- ~ "J UUV ?lll/ ??> ' slonal buret* of genius at particular pannage*, and | the display of talent at certain special point*, but more, *till, by the tranquillity and quiet of hi* manlier, and I the nlmo*t careless < a?e of his speech, deportment , and bearing We misht say of Mr. Macready that hi* very finpst hit*,which produce the greatest impressing | (esjiecially upon those best able to Judge.) are precisely > these where he appears to make no afTort at all. and \ where no energy, force. or violence, are perceptible, i For thin reason, he appears .to vulgar mind*, not half so go?d an actor, a* a more tumultuou*. riotous declaim- | er would seem to them to be.

Ilut. fln? as this play is, rich as it Is in fine passages, of the most elevated sentiment and richest poetry. It is by no means favorable for the dl*p1ay of fine acting, and intellectual, histrionic conception, before a miscellaneous audience. There Is no love la it. no , passion, no violent feeling no ebullition of common , passions; it is purely Intellectual It i* such a play a* might be acted at Oxford, or Kton. with heads of college* nnd halls, and |>rnf?**or*. and clerical scholar*. f<ra special audience Mr (J- Vandenhnff nartlnu. larly distinguished himself last night; hi* performance of Mark Antony was such as only could have been displayed liy a man of extraordinary genius and scholarship. both of which Mr. V. unquestionably possesses in a very high degree.

Rf.oatt* off thi Batterv.?In addition to the many and varied attractions which the Amerioan Institute have provided for some weeks past at Castle Garden, the public were gratified yesterday afternoon by several excellent boat races. The evening was v?ry propitious, and thousands assembled on the top and outside of the splendid amphitheatre, and on overy avai.able spot on the Battery whence a4view could be obtained of this exciting nautical display. The following were the premiums offered to the suseessful competitors, viz:?A silver cup of the value of $15, for boats not exceeding thirty feet, rowed bv four ours. A silvHr cup of the value of $10. for twenty two feet boats, rowed by two pair of sculls A silver medal for nineteen feet keel boats, that have been worked for three months immediately previous to the raoe. rowed by one Cair of soulls A silver medal for nineteen feet sail oats to rail without rudder, oar. or any thing to assist tbem in steering, except the single sail and the weight of the person. There were five boats entered for this last prize for the winner of nineteen feet keel boats, (ordinarily known as White Hall boats.) sailed without rudder, oar, or anything to assist them in steering exoept the tingle sail and the weight of the person. The following boats made the respective times annexed to their names around KUIs's Island a distance of three miles, viz -.? Oregon 28:16, Teaser 28:30, J. Green 29:15, Harbour Maater 31:35. Chas Thomas 31:50. The use of this trial has been questioned, and are supposed by many to be merely useless displays; but no one knaws the difficulties with which they are attended. Both oars and rudder may be lost from an upset or otherwise Besides, these boat* are the ordinary craft in which thousands of persons are monthly carried around the city, and their safety in sailing mainly depends upon the sail being properly rigged. Unless they are perfect in this respect It is impossible to manige them in a trial like the present. In the next place, the less the rudder is used the faster will the boat sail, and this display teaches the boatmen to It MM.

Lieut. being there with his beautiful gig, called " Canadian Maid,'1 of the United States steam cutter Dallas, volunteered to row against the George Washington, around Bedlow's island, a distance of four miles. The George Washington came in a short distance ahead, in 41 minutes. 50 seconds.

The Flower came in first, in 32:13. It was a subject of regret to many, that the races did not come off at an earlier and a warmer period of tbe day; for many who felt the greatest Interest In them were obliged, as the evening drew on, and the temperature became colder, to deny themselves the pleasure of staying to see the results of these exciting contests.

The woman died on Tuesday or Wednesday la?.t. and was lying there aince, from want of means to bury her. A hearse was obtained and the body removed to the deau houjn, by order of the City Intpeotor, where they would not receive it. The Inspector was again waited on. wiio immediately gave another order for the body to be admitted to the dead houae, and It was accordingly taken there a second time; but the fratidious functionary in charge of that inxtltu ion refused to obey the order, and would not receive the body without the Coroner's certificate. Coroner Walters was then sent for (about eight P.M.), but was unable to attenitill mo ning. The body was then taken back to the house of the husband, but they would not receive it. Consequently nothing oo .Id be done but to bring the putrid bodj to the station house, and dump it. in the street, or keep it in the hearse all night which latter alternative was adopted, and the body still remained mere yemeruay morning Who in to blame in this matter ! which in certainly a disgraceful affair, to say the le*ft of It.
