TH NO. 5252, Urent Newspaper Enterprise?Reports of I Confnu. Mr. Richard M. Ho?, one of the greatest mechanical geniuses of the present age, has just oompleted magnlQoent Improvements In machinery, and otherwise, In the establishment of the Ntw York llerali, and is bow on his way to London and Paris, for the purpose of introducing some of bis magnificent presses into the newspaper establishments of those eities. During the last six months, we have expended about forty thousand dollars, in machinery of all kinds, and various other improvements. We are now enabled to print a double-ebeet Herald at the rate of from seven to ten thousand copies per hour, and could throw off a hundred thousand copies in twelve hours, with the greatest ease In the world. Having now the weapons of a great movement in our hands, wo mean to apply them as toon as possible, to practical purposes. On the opening of the next session of Congresswe mean to place before the Senate and House of Representatives, proposals for giving full reports of the debates of both of those bodies, to be published every day In the Herald, and give them a circulation throughout the world, of from twenty-five to thirty thousand per day. At the opening of the session, we hall commence giving these reports on our own account; but as it will require a double sheet to embrace the debates of both houses, and a vast expenditure for paper and reporting, we shall propose that Congress pay a portion of the additional expense, in the same manner as the French republic pays a portiou of the expense of publishing thulr newspaper organ, the Moniteur. The advantages to Congress, to the government, and to the American republic, of such a plan, would be numerous. The Herald Is the only American journal that has a world-wide circulation, and a circulation too among the higher statesmen and intellects of the age. There are several journals in this and other fllties, called penny papers, that have a large local oireulation, but they are without ability, and not competent to give a high tone to the newspaper press, uch as we are able to do by the extraordinary facilities of our arrangements, organisation, and preparations of all kinds. The new printing presses which Mr. Hoe has constructed for up, are the only Ones of the same form and capacity In the world. The publication of each day's debates of both houtes of Congress, on a double sheet of the IUrald, in the same way m the debates of the British Parliament are published in the London Timet, and other journals there, would legate the tone of the country, and of our statesmen, and circulate their fame and influence far beyond any other mode that oould De adopted. The local Journals published in Washington have little circulation, and )?si influence. Trobably, the party papers there have pot an aggregate circulation of over two thousand, more or less; while the Herald, as we have already said, circulates nearly twenty-five thousand per day, as can be perceived by our returns ; and when the next session commences, we, probably, shall have thirty thousand over all this continent and the wide world besides. This is the practical movement whioh we have had is contemplation in expending large sums during the last few months. A proposition, embracing these views, will be presented to both houses of Congress, no matter what oandidate shall be elected, or what party shall be lu power. We shall endeavour, even at our own expense, to conmence the plan we have described at the opening of next session, and trust to the good sense ?><1 itnoitT of both the Senate and the House to con. enr In our views, after they shall see their praotlcal efficiency and general merits. ARRIVAL OF THS STEAMSHIP NIAGARA AT BOSTON. ONS WBSK LASBR. tc. kt. &e. We have one week's later news from Europe. It comes on the heels of that by the Britannia. The steamer Niagaru, Capt. Ryne, made a splendid run of twelve days, and reached Boston at hall-past 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. She sailed from Liverpool on Saturday, the 7th inst. The news was immediately transmitted over the wires to New York. . The steamship Niagara arrived at Halifax at 4 A. M., and left at 7 A. M., yesterday. One of the passengers in the Niagara, from Liverpool, Mr. John Doyle, states that he was arrested on arrival at Halifax, on suspicion of being an Irish sympathiser. He was taken from his state room by a sold'er at'ached to the Regiment of Fusiliers, Halifax, but as no ground appeared for the ch&jge, he was released, and he came to this city. \ The chartist trials in London havfe been concluded; conviction has been the uniform result. Dowling, the Irish confederate, Cuffey, Lacui, Fay, and MuUings, were sentenced to transportation for life. Several of the less prominent conspirators pleaded guilty, and were subjected to fine and imprisonment; against others, the Attorney General abandoned the prosecution, contenting himself with binding them, in their own recognizances, to be forthcoming when called upon by the authorities The main feature of these trials consisted of a merciless exposure of the infamous spy system. Her majesty returned from Scotland by railway, with the Prince and her family. The trial of Mr. Sftiith O'Brien, at Clonmel, is still unconclnded. An application was made to have the cause postponed, on the ground that Mr. O'Brien had not received, previous to his trial, a copy of his indictment, and a list of the witnesses to be produced against him. In England, a man on trial for his life, has a richt to be informed nnon hnth th*a<? nnmia Ut k> ? ?I ?rv ,"?i UMk according to the decision of the court at Clonmel, in Ireland, no such right exists. Another point of dissatisfaction was, the great disproportion existing between Protestants and Catholics upon the jury panel. After sundry attempts on^tl^e part of the prisoner's counsel to gain something tor hia client on these "pdiitfj, the trial was proceeded with. Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday, were fully consumed in examining witnesses on the part of the crown. As usual in political conspiracies, tiaitors have been found amongst the Irish, who have given evidence which will go far to Biipport the indictment against Mr. O'Brien. On Wednesday, Mr. Whiteside, counsel for the prisoner, entered upon his defence. The Hibernia, which left Boston, 20th ult., reached the Mersey on Monday, after a passage of llfc days. The Washington, which left New York the same day, arrived at Southampton on Thursday night, after a passage of 16 days. The United States will sail from Southampton on the 10th inst. for New York. The St. Lawrence, 41 Runs, Capt. Paulding, ar. rived, on the 8d inst.. ofl Cowes, in 24 days from Norfolk, (the St. Lawrence is on her way to Germany,) to communicate with Mr. Bancroft, the American Minister, and the Consul for the United States at Cowes. She sailed on the lollowing day. The St. Lawrence is to be stationed in the Weser during the winter, for the protection of American interests in the present unsettled state of Northern Europe. She was E HE MO visited by Mr. Bancroft and the American Consul. The Portsmouth correspondent of the Times, says the St. Lawrence passed through Spithead this aiternoon, the -1th. She did not salute the flag of the commander-in-chief, or the union jack of the King's Bastion. Francc. In France, on Saturday, a scene of confusion occurred in the Chambers, almost unparalleled in the history oi that assembly. One of the members having commented in severe terms upon some late republican banquets, and condemned the apathy oi the government in relation the'eto, the members of the republican party were thrown into such a rage, that they almost simultaneously rushed to the tribune, which they attempted to scalc on all sides, but were prevented by the oftiers of the house. At length the President was obliged to put on his hat, and suspend the sitting. The Paris journals of Sunday contain long articles on the disgraceful scenes oi Saturday in the National Assembly. There is a burst oi indignation in all the organs oi the moderate parties, of every shade, against the atrocious conduct of red republicanism. It is currently reported that, in consequence of the opposition given to the proposal to elect the President oi the Kepublic hy the National Assembly, the government has resolved to leave the choice oi a President to be decided by universal suffrage?but that an amendment is to be introduced into the constitution deferring the election until the organic laws have been voted upon?in the meantime, the executive government is to remain as it is at present. The Paris paj>er8 of Thursday, say : that after much hesitation, as it appears, the Government, at a cabinet council, has resolved to Bupport, by all its available means, the amendment to the article of the constitution respecting the election of President, to be proposed by M. Flocon, which is to the following pfjpr.t :? The National Assembly delegates the executive power a citizen, who shall receive the title of President of the republic. The gcvernment has, therefore, taken up definitively its posiiion in direct hostility to the moderate party in the Chamber, and to the kcown majority of the nation. [From postscript of European Times ] Some of the Paris journals mention the report that Austria has definitively rejected the AngloFrench mediation. We have not been able, however, to ascertain what the foundation for the report is. Advices have arrived to-day of serious diiturbances which have broken out at Lyons. It appeals that early on Tuesday morning, the Gardes Mobiles of Lyons, whose corps has been recently dissolved, presented themselves at the Prefectrue, to demand the month's pay which had, they said, been promised them. Being allowed to enter the hotel, thev possessed themselves of it, and kept the Prefect in custody for three quarters of an hour. Crowds assembled around the building, but a regiment of dragoons, returning trom exercise, charged them and drove them away, also clearing the hotel and releasing the Prefect. The vicinity of the Prefecture was then occupied by the military. The alarm caused was so great that the shops in the vicinity were closed. At naif-past 9 o'clock a group of 20 GardeB Mobiles disarmed the two sentinels of the Mont-dePietc. They then attempted to force themselves into the guard house, but the men occupying it, having barricaded themselves in it, they didnot succeed. They, however,broke all the windows. At 10 o'clock. 200 mobiles presented themselves at the Hotel-ae-Ville, with a red flag?being charged by the soldiers, they immediately dispersed. Another nrrount savs. that notice of wlml wan nnaaincr having been given to the military authorities, the 9th dragoons were sent to occupy the Place de la Ptcfecture. After having cleared the place and its approaches, and having cnarged their carbines, the company dismounted, and entering the Prefecture, cleared the interior conrt of the insurgents without resistance. At half past 12 o'clock, a battery of artillery had arrived upon the Place de la Prefecture, and cannon was planted so as to sweep all the approaches At the departure of the last accounts, the insurgents were endeavoring to raise barricades in the rue Mercier. Singular reports are circulated this evening, of a plot that has been detected against the National Assembly. It is certain that ageiits have been discovered, who have been employed in corrupting the operatives, to induce them to make an attempt upon the Assembly. with the cry of "Vive Barbes!" "Vive Kaspail!" It is affirmed, however, by some, that these things are got up by the government itself, to enable it the more easily to crush the red republic. We learn that mutinies have taken place, of the garde mobile in the barracks of Montreuil, in consequence of a distribution of bread which did not please them. The courts and interior of the barracks were barricaded, and cries of ",Vtve Napoleon!"?"A bas Cavaignac!" were heard. It appears that, in consequence of the decision of the Club of the Institute, the Government has determined not to make the vote on the Presidency a cabinet question. We learn from Vienna, that Count Lamberg,' who had been appointed, bv the limj>eror of Austria, commander in chief of his troops in Hungary and Croatia, was assassinated, on the 29th ult , on the bridge of Pesth, by a student. Gellachich, the Ban of Croatia, was continuing his march, in spite ?t the injunctions to the contrary of the hmDeror. Continental Intelligence. The newi from the continent continues to betray considerable want of political composure. Iji France much excitement and alarm continue to prevail. The Assembly have decided, by a considerable majority, after a very able discussion, in which Lamartine took a prominent part, on having but one legislative chamber. The Committee of the Constitution have also decided, by a vote ot ten to tour, that the President of the republic shall be elected by universal suffrage, and not by the Assembly itself. Socialist banquets, after the example of the reform banquets held all over the country last autumn, are too frequent to favor an expectation of coming quietude ; and the speeches and crics which "have characterized more than one of them, are of the most treasonable and incendiary nature. Nothing is yet definitely known of the state of the negotiations relative to the affairs of Northern Italy, but from the remarks of General Cavaignac, in the French National Assembly J on .Monday, at well as from the rumors that are afloat, there la S)od ground for hoping that a pacific solution of e otueetiojj ;a netr at hand. In Southern Italy, matters do not look so promising. The Kins of Naples refuses the meaiation of France and England, between himself and his former subjects in Sicily, and threatens angimmediate resumption of hostilities Germany is Mill in an unsettled state ; the standard of revolt has been again raised in the southern provinces, and again the rebels have been signally dipcomfitted. Prussia has escaped thejdanger of another revolution, by the submission of thej king, at the elevtnth hour, to the wishes ot the National Assembly. The anarchy of the Austrian empire appears to be nearly complete. In Vienna, we have a spectacle of a reactionary court waiting for the concentration of a ltirge military force around the capital, to carry out its retrograde policy, and ot a triumphant National Assembly. (?ne distric* of Hungary, dependency, is almost overrun with the trooi? of another Austrian province. The Ban of Croatia, elated by his sscresR, is no longer willing to act as the tool of the central government, hut threatens to set up on his own account. The Vienna cabinet, alarmed at the new turn of sfiairs, lias Kent, perhaps too late, a commission to stop the further progress of the victorious barbarians. The regent of Germany has issued to the governments of all the German States a circular manifesto, officially recounting the facts of the rising in Frankfort, on the 18th, and its prompt suppression by his government. The attempt of fctruve to proclaim a republic at Baden has utterly failed. General Iloflman came up with the insurgents near Staufen, completely round them ; and then, passing by Crotzingen, advanced through ihe llexenthal, or Valley of the Witches, in two divisions, on Staufen, which he completely surrounded. After a somewhat obstinate resistance, the town was taken by storm. So^e houses were burned down, a great number of the defenders slain, and some hundreds of prisoners takvn. Among the latter was Struve himself. He and eighty of his immediate followers were immediately tried hy couit martial, condemned and shot. Acori s of about 1000 escaped into the Munzertlml, but they are said to be surrounded by a large body of Wurteniberg troops. In the sitting of the constituent assembly of I'russia on ihe 2d, the mi- ister of foreign sfliurs declared thnt he fully expected that the negotiation with Denmark would lead to a peaceful arrangement The Frankfort Journal of the 3d inst., says that W YC 'RNING EDITION?FR the diplomatic relations between the central pow- I er and the French republic, are now completely regulated, and that at Frankfort, as in Pans, permanent ministers will represent both countries. I Austria. The Vienna cerrefpondent of the Kulcna ZcituPR averts that Kufsia and Prussia huve pro-. OUwd iheir assistance on the Italian qneatlOD. The Paris Prtue states the reply of the Austrian government to the ofler oi mediation by England and 1* ranee, in substance as followst- list, Austria denies that the war undertaken by Charles Albert can establish any pretensions over Lornhardy; that the guarantee of the treaty of Vienna, in favor of Austria, finds a new support in the ripht of conquest established by Marshal lladetzky, and that no alteration of territorml equilibrium can be justly made by two only of the seven powers who guarantied the treaty of Vienna. Austria, however, proposes the convocation of a general congiess of the powers of Europe at Inspruck, with the view to concert measures for the independent administration of the Lombardo-Venetian territory, and the durable tranquillity of the j>enintula beyond the Appenines. Hungary. The Pestlier Zeitung, of the 20th ult., contains a detailed account of the battle between the Hungarian and Cioatian forces, which was fought on the 18th ult , in the vicinity of S/.ala Kgerszegh. The Hungarians, under Count Terek, mustered 18,000 men; the division of the Ban's army, which attacked them, amounted to 20,000. The Croatians were completely routed, and lott 3,200 men, 17 pieces of artillery, and 13 standards. The loss of the Iiuneanans is quoted at 123 killed, and 102 wounded. Pruaala. r>erun possea tnrougn an important crisis on ine 26th u)t., the day on which the new cabinet were to pronounce their decision on the question of ministerial interfeience with the views and political opinions of ihe officers of the army, the very question, it will be remembered, which caused the resignation of the last cabinet. The radicals relied on the refusal of the ministry to execute a former resolution of the parliament on this subject. Everything was prepared for a revolution, and they seemed to feel a painful disapointment, when the Premier, Gen. Pfuel, read a copy of a proclamation to the army, by which the parliamentary resolution was fully carried out. No pretence for an outbreak was left for the present. The crowd which surrounded the building dispersed. Switzerland. The GaZt'M Titinw, oi the 22d, announces that the blockade of the canton by liadctsky continues, and that, consequently, the treaty of 1845 concerning the postal communications between Lcmbardy and the cantons ot Lucerne, Zurich, Re me, Uri, Uasle and Ticino, having been violently inlringfd, Switzerland is virtually in a state of war with Austria. It is generally believed that Switzerland will depart from her state of neutrality; that 10,000 men will be immediately sent to the frontier, and a reserve of 30,000 called out. Several thousand Austrians are stationed between Lucerne ana Uggiate. India. A further overland mail has arrived from India, bringing dates from Calcutta to the 20th, Madras, 25th, and Bombay the 31st August. Major Edwards and his troops were still encamped betore Moultan. The reinforcements despatched from Ferozepore had not yet joined them, but were hourly expected. In the line of one of the columns advancing a heavy fire had been heard in the direction cf Moultan. A Sikh auxiliary force was also on the march from Lahore. The insurgent inhabitants were attempting to quit Moultan, having heard of the approach of the British and the Derwan to prevent them building up the gates. In spite of the unhealthy season, the march of the reinforcements had not been attended with any remarkable casualty. An outbreak has taken place in the Hazerah districts, in which Attock is situated, the key to the northwestern frontier of India; and Col. Canara, a European officer in the Sikb service, had been murdered. We are afraid that the delay caused in despatching troops to succor Major Edwards, has induced the insurgents to make this movement, presuming upon our inability to suppress the rebellion. Commercial and Financial Intelligence. The tendency of the cotton market is stilj down. This week the official quotations for middling and fair Orleans are reduced id., and though for other descriptions the former Quotations are continued, the turn ot the market forPall kinds is decidedly in iavorol the buyer, and no possibility of effecting sales on a large scale without submitting to some further sacrifice, the consumers showing no disposition to buy, and their current wants and speculation being dormant.

Our Bpnnlih Correspondence. Madrid, Sept. 19, 1848. Highly Important Intelligence from Spain?Nego train,nt for the Cation of Cuba to the United Statu?Probable Success. It ib not often that-there is information of an interesting nature to the United State*, worth the trouble or expense of a correspondent, from this far famed capitol; but, during the last few weeks, certain matters have come to light, concerning the relations between the United States and S|>ain. which present points of the deepest im|>ortance to both of those countries, and to the world at large; and which, when fully known, will, no doubt, create a great sensation throughout England, and the whole of Europe. I have reference to nego Nations which have recently been opened on the pari of the United States, with the Spanish Ministiy here, for the cession of the island of Cuba to the United States, on the payment of a considerable fum of money. I speak of matters, you will observe, which, at present, are only knownfemong the diplomatic corps, but which will jffobably get into the newspapers, and become a general siiyect of European remark, in a short timfk As lar as i can ascertain th? facts, from the best diplomatic sources, and in every possible way, I learn that, in July or August last, the Unitmi States government sent a despatch, through M^, Sajpyfer, | Secretary of Legation, addressed jtv^iLSislklcre' the American Minister here, cofitaiAinffRrections t<r him to sound the Spanish government, on their diH?)citions to sell or cede'|fie island of Cuba to the United States, and, if silch a purpose could be accomplished, to commence negotiations nssecret!y and as fast as possible, so ns to prevent opposition or hostility from the Hntish, or other governments. Mr. Sawyer has been here for some time, and Mr. Saunders, I understand, lias been taking Mime steps in the matter, but, in consequence ol his utter ignorance of the modern languages, either Spanish or French, lie finds a great deal of difficulty in the way, and is thrown into the hands ot other diplomatists, who will use the information which they receive through such a channel to defeat the genera object of the nu? ixnw^wact: cwr?tf? -f" -.*+.r jtmxmr.. amiimyaKi IE R A 1848. sion. It is remarkable how the ministers of the United States are selected ; and the topic is frequently noticed among ih?: diplomatic body in this capitol and in other parts of this continent, that the American government sends men, as its representatives abroad, who are utterly unacquainted with foreign affairs or foreign languages, and entirely incompetent to conduct important negotiations without the assistance of other diplomatists, who |augh and ridicule them, instead of selecting men, suited by talent and education,experienced linguists accomplished jurists or natural diplomatists. I have not yet been able to learn the terms which the United States have offered for the cession of Cuba, but of the opening of negotiations for that purpose there can be no doubt. It is true that a short time ago some publication was made on the subject, denying any wish, on the part of the United States, fcr the acquisition of that island; but it was wel' undeistood, at the time the denial was made, thaC it was directed to some erroneous assertions on the general question, and the motive tor putting it forth was to throw the British and other ministries hostile to such a movement, off their guard as far as possible. There can be no question, as I have already stated, of the opening of negotiations on this subject ; but the success of Mr. Saunders's mission seems to be more susceptible of doubt. It is well known here, among diplomatists, tha when the difficulty occurred between the United States and England, relative to Oregon, a most extraordinary plot waa hatched by Loui8 Fhilippe and Queen Christina, for the purpose o recovering Mexico, and reconstituting that republic into a monarchy, at the head of which would be . the Montpeneier branch of the Orleans family; while, in order to accomplish their purpose, they took steps, through the Spanish minister, to cede Cuba to the British government. A very remarkable correspondence took place between Lord Aberdeen and Mr. Bulwer on the subject, which has not yet seen the light, but which must come before the public one of these days. The proposition emanated from the Spanish government, and the correspondence, or a copy of it, is, I believe, m the hands of the celebrated General SerannoAt the time it took place, Mr. McLane was Minister of the United States in London, and the Oregon negotiation was just on the eve of coming to maTt u'na in thin atnfp nf tli#> rnsp nnri wlif>n all appearances of war between the United States and Eigland were dissipated, that Lord Aberdeen directed Mr. Bulwer to proceed no further on the subject of the negotiations for the cession of Cuba to England, until he received further directions from the Foreign office. The whole of the negotiations, and the plan, originated with Louis Philippe and Queen Christina, and were founded on the belief lhat the Oregon dispute would certainly create war between England and the United States, and on the supposition that the further movement of ceding Cuba to England would increase their hostility, and make them bitter and irreconcilable foes. Under this state of the re. lations between the United States and England, growing out ot Oregon and Cuba, Louis Philippe intended to send a French army into Spain, anj assist the government there, for the benefit of Queen Christina, in spite of the hostility of England, who would, in the event ot a war, have enough to do with the United States. All these grand schemes were, however, nipped in the bud by the French revolution in February last, and by the Mexican war, which, in connection with the settlement of the Oregon question, presented checks and difficulties to the intrigues concocted by Louis Philippe and Queen Christina. The old purpose of selling Cuba to England is now revived by the present Spanish government, but with this important difference, that the government of the United States is to be the purchuser, i / -i r r*?i 1 t* l^i: i i .1 1 niveau 01 mai 01 r-ugituiu. 11 10 ucuen-u oy me Spanish government that the United States would pay larger sum for such a cession than England would, and, further, that it would be oi more advantage to the Spanish people, in every point of view, that that island should belong to the Uuited States, rather than to England, or any other European power. Another circumstance, in favor of this view, is the well known fact, that the Spanish inhabitants of Cuba would be willing to be transferred to the United States, and would hHiI it as for their interests, while they would revolt at, and repudiate, any cession of it to the British government, from which they would have nothing 'o expect but a policy similar to that which has ruin rd Jamaica ana ine uniisn wesi inaia islands. The idea of selling Cuba to some one, is, therefore, not new. It originated Beveral years ago, and negotiations for the cession of it to Great Britain, were actually opened in the way I have pointed out. The present state of affairs in Europe has I disposed the Spani. h government to look for a new | purchaser, and that purchaser ib the United States. 1 Accordingly, negotiations, with that object in view, < may be said to be opened by the despatch which I was sent through Mr. Sawyer, the Secretary of Legation, in August last, and delivered by him to Mr. Saunders, the American Minister at the Court , of Madrid. 1 am not able to inform you of what progress has been made in these negotiations, but I shall endeavor to ascertain, ana miorm you oy me next British steamer, and give you all the additional information in my power. Mr. Saunders, I believe, made only an informal inquiry as to the disposi tion of the Spanish government in the matter; but ^ it is very certain that, several times, oqj of the Spanish ministers, on the occasion of toiritt given by the Queen in this capitol, let out such inclination on the general subject as called forth from the press, here and elsewhere, the immaterial and merely diplomatic contradiction I have referred to which, in fact, amounted to no contradiction at all. Thus matters stand at present; but there can be no doubt that, if Mr. Saunders, or any one connected with the American embassy here, understood cither the French or the Spanish language, and had as much knowledge of good manners as they have of chewing tobacco, or as intimate an acquaintance with diplomacy as they have with tar and turpentine, they would be able to purchase Cuba in less than two months, and transmit the bill of sale to Washington in nearly as short a time. You will hear from me again soon, as soon as I learn further paiticulars connected with this important proceeding. Ankcdotk of John Jacob Astor.? ? Do you ever trust, Mr. Astor!" inquired Mr. K. "I do not trnst strangers, sir," *u the reply, " antes* they fornifh satisfactory cHt reference." " Then," qaoth Mr. K., " the skins I hate selected matt suffice for this time." and. paying for the same, he departed, la imv mirrDimn m iiiinrop mj, JUKI oeiore me sailing of the New Bedford packet, the young trader returned for hie lot of furs.

Thus commenced a trade between two merchants, which was continued to the mutual satisfaction and advantage of both for a long term cf years. Mr K.

The directors of this railroad and of the Patersoa Railroad Company, invited, yesterday, a number of their friends, i^d of those interested in the undertaking, to an ezcursien to Itamapo, on the occasion of the opening of the extension of the railroad to that place. The new branch extends nearly sixteen miles, thirteen miles ef which are in a straight line, and the ourvature of the remainder is not of great magnitude. There are two bridges on the line, one of whioh is elevated, we should think, about one hundred feet from the water; and thoy are both constructed in sue hi a firm and duiable manner as to give a feeling of th*greatest security during the transit. There Is nothing particular to observe with rerpect to the gradients, thu cutting*, or the embankments. In some parts oi the line, however, the late rain had the effect of softening the embankment, so m to make it give way to the pressure of the foot; but we should tbiak that after a little time the ground will b? sufficiently consolidated toremove any apprehension from this cause. About four hundred gentlemen, an well as wu could calculate, went down upon the excursion; and, as the day waa exceedingly favorable, there is no doubt but they fully realist d the pleasure they anticipated. As the traiu ueaitd Ramapo an immense crowd was assembled, who hailed the arilval with loud and prolonged cheering.
