The Steamer's Alalia. The mails of the Niagara will reach this city early this morning. The Niagara arrived at Boston one hour and thirty minutes before the mai' train left that city. The Sewn by the Niagara, The intelligence by the steamship Niagara, w hich arrived at Boston, at three o'clock P. M. on yesterday, and whose news we gave in ar extra, last evening, is seven days later than tha: received by the Britannia, and is of much more interest than appeared by our hast despatches The uproar in the National Assembly oi Pans, which is charged, as usual, on the progressive party, and the prospect of the question of the Preevidential election being decided on the principl* of universal Buflrage, are the most important French items. The arrival of our mails, however may give us something of more interest. W< have to trust, as yet, to our telegraphic despatches The suppression of the Baden insurrection, am the deatli of Struve, its leader, are ccnfirmed ; bu the condition of Germany is such as to promise ?re long, a thorough revolution of the whole em pire. It will be seen that Austria, trembling fo; her existence, has proposed the convocation of j general ctr.gress ot the powers of Europe, at Ins pruck, for the purpose of settling the administra tion of the Lombardo-Venetian territory, and th< durable tranquillization, or rather pacification o the peninsula, beyond the Appenines. But this, ir the present condition of affairs, is out of the ques *ion. The people of Europe are not disposed an] longer to let their rights and liberties be bartere< between royal diplomatists. But it is also ruxiored that Austria has definr tively rejected the mediation of England and France. This must precipitate the interference ol the latter power in European war; and, indeed, ehe ib already on the eve of such a change oi rulers, at will result in plunging her into the midst of th< ctrife. The stormy debates in the National As eembly, the triumph of the universal Buflrage prin ciple in regard to the elect.on of President, and th< disturbances that have taken place, an accoun of which will be iound in another column, prove that the conservatives are fast losing strength. Il ib taid the government has resorted to the old trick of pretending to discover plots, on the eve ol 'he election, for the purpose of acquiring a fac'; tiouB Btrength from the fears oi the midrilp classes; but the trick; if it have been v", attempted, is too stale to succeed. The governr":;.. ol Prussia has, by a timely concession. .<>caj>ed another revolution. It is evidently, however, but delayed. There is every rea son to believe that monarchy will disappear from every square mile of Germany, before six months iiave elapsed. Switzerland and Austria are represented to be a! war. This is but an increase of the difficulties which are already heaped, mountain high, on the shoulders of that tottering old power. On the whole, the complexion of the news is favorable to the cause of the people. There is not a single throne in Europe that is not at present shaking. Russia and Prussia are said to be ebout to take part in the difficulty between Austria and Italy. England and France will follow, and th^n the game will be complete. Opening or !tcffotlatloui for tlie Cession of Cuba to the United States. Among the items of fereign intelligence received by the last steamer from Europe, not the leat>t important, but probably tne most so, is the news conained in our correspondence from Madrid, of the actual ojx-ning of negotiations between the United States government and that of Spain, for the cession of the island of Cuba to this republic. Of the accuracy of the intelligence communicated by our AArroatkAi.ffut.l vi'u Lva *w? rnnonn t/t /J/uiKf If comes ironi the midst of the diplomatic circles in Madrid, among whom exist the only means of ascertaining the existence of such negotiations, beyond the bureaus of the two governments concerned in the affair. Its truth and accuracy, in general terms, have been confirmed in our opinions by ? variety of incidents that have taken plaee on this side of the A'lantic, as well as on the other. It may be rec< llected that, a few weeks ago, we published an xtract from a Madrid letter, which first appeared in a London paper, containing a qualified contradiction, under the authority of Mr. .Saunders him ell, th<- American Minister at the couit of Madrid, to a report then in circulation that a negotiation of the kind was on foot between the American government and General Lopez, 1>U( winch really had nothing to do with the matter We believe thnt our corn s|>ondent at Madrid gives the moit accuratc view of the present situation of the iiliair. According to his account, the negotiaMon *as opened in the shape of hu inquiry on the )>ait ol the American government, whether the ^Spanish government would treat on the subject ol ci ding (Jui>a at all. Tins movement, i, eema, was commenced in July or August last; and, accordingly, matiuctioni must have m been sent from Wash i nut on to the American mimtter about the time of the adjournment of the .at?i session ol Congrem. The mutter, thereto.e, r a) le contid* red as having mude some pi ogress; and, peihap*, the government at Washington e*pecta intelligence on the subject in a few weeks, of eoiir-e livorsble to the project of acq uriug thnt v.ilu.itiie abd nch islsnd. ' - | its authenticity is satisfactorily developed, a proi digious sensation throughout the United States and Kurope. In this country there is a large party favorable to the acquisition ot that island, principally confined to the South, and scattered through the Wei-t. No doubt can be entertained but that the white inhabitants ot Cuba, the owners of the soil, would be delighted at the transfer of that sovereignty to the United States in preference to any other country. A transfer of it to the British government would at once seal their fate, and accelerate downward the destiny of that fair island. The ruin of the British West Indies, and recently that of the French West Indies, would soon be followed by the complete downfall of Cuba, if she were to become an appendage to the British government in any shape. The only salvation for Cuba, in its present condition, rests in its incorporation into the American Union, and its becoming one oi the confederated States of this republic. Piobably the serious aspect of aflairs in Europe may have influenced the Spanish government to listen to such a proposition from the American minister; but there can be no doubt that for some years past there has existed a disposition in the government of Spain to sell Cuba to the best purchaser, in order to get rid of its liability and debts, which have been a bar to the progress of that fine country for many years past. Of course, the first idea of sale would naturally bring to mind that the British government would be the best purchaser, because that power could throw obstacles in the way of a sale to any other. The new condition of thines in Europe, bv the spread of the revolu tionary spirit there, and the new position of the United States, by the successful termination of the war with Mexico, and the exhibition of our national power, may be said to open a new field for the transfer, and successful transfer, of the island of Cuba to the United States, without any hostility on the part of Great Britain, or any other government. As to the purchase money, whether it is fifty, or a hundred, or even a hundred and fifty millions of dollars, we have not the slightest doubt but that the inhabitants of Cuba would cheerfully assume the whole ol it, and become responsible for it to the treasury of the United States, if such a negotiation could be effected within a leasonable time. This question, we have no doubt, will create a ; great commotion throughout the country, and prol duce a multitude of conflicting opinions in difler' ent parts of the republic. There is a large party in the North hostile to any such acquisition, but in the South and South-west, we are perfectly satisfied, that the cession of Cuba to the United States | would be hailed with unanimity and acclamation. That island would add materially to the power of the United States, and there are commercial and manufacturing interests in the North sufficient to neutraLze, it properly developed, all the hostility of the fanatics and others, who might unite in attempting to defeat such a magnificent acquisition as that rich and valuable island. We have much more to say on this subject. Fourierite Manifesto. ? Mr. Philosopher Greeley has issued a mad manifesto to the free soil men of Ohio, the pretence of which is to urge them to the steadfast support of General Taylor. This insane document, which extends over two columns, is a mere repetition of the stale arguments used by the Tribune against General i Taylor's nomination, and in favor of the free soil ' movement. It it have any weight at all, which ie not very likely, however, from the crazy style in which it iB written, it is calculated to injure Gene> ral Taylor in those portions of the countiy it 1 which he most wants support. | Everybody knows that any present agitation ol the slavery question by General Taylor's friends, I is ill-advised; and that to rake up those old whig issues, in connection with his name, is the suresi means to effect his defeat. The intelligent por t | tion of the community, who will vote for Genera! Taylor, will not vote for him as a whig. The y whigs, however, for their own purposes, desire j that General Taylor, if e.'ected at all, should be elected as a whig, bound to recognise the politic . cians of the party as the lights l>y which he !? tc I J steer; and, mo;e than all, bound to recognise f them as the channels through which executive , patronage is to flow to the office-beggars. It ii , | evident that they care nothing lor General Taylor, j I per k, if they can but make him the instrument ol . their own aggrandizement, and that of their party: and hence, in giving him a '/wait support, such as . that pretended to be given by this manifesto, they t look not so much to secure General Taylor's elec? tion, as to secure the election of a whig President, t whom they can turn to good account when in | office. f This manifesto, then, of Mr. Greeley, is calcu iated to do General Taylor much injury; if, indeed, the disconnected manner in which it is i written be not sufficient to dissipate all impressions, favorable or unfavorable, that the document is meant to have on the public mind. But when the madness of politics is joined to the folly of Fourierism, what extravagance may not be exacted 1 American Steamships?The Ocean Stkam Navigation Company.?'The Hermann takes her departure to-day, at twelve o'clock, with a 1 full freight and a fair number of passengers, 'or Southampton and Bremen. The last voyage of this steamer was performed so satisfactorily, in spite of very rough weather and head seas, as was shown by the log, which we published at the time, that her friends confidently anticipate a successful trip from her, which will serve to strengthen her well established reputation. The solidity of their engines once secured, these ships have many advantages over those of our neighbors, which will always obtain for them a full share of the patronage of the public. They are not wet ships ; the accommodations for passengers are on a most liberal scale; the cabins are 'arge, well ventilated, and furnished with every convenience ; and the well known kindness of their ixniiiiiir rnntninR. who urr rnrcfnllv nluwrvant of the ritee of hospitality towards the guests a* their table, and studiously attentive to all their wants and comforts, renders the voyage across the broad Atlantic a tour of pleasure and instrucHon. Every portion of the engines of the Hermann which was found deficient in strength, or appeared to be likely to need additional bracing, under any possible contingencies, has been thoroughly Be' cured. The company seems determined to persevere in its good work, and make everything ! right that was not made right at first; and, feeling , a hearty good-will to this enterprize, as we always i have done, it gives us pleasure to bear testimony I to their untiring exertions. We shall leave all I eneers at accidents which have befallen them, in common with other ocean steamers, to those who can derive pleasure from such exhibitions of il' nature. I All enterprises of this kind must meet with troubles in the beginning. They must have their metal tried in various ways ; but an American | press and people, while it points out errors, ought ! to extend an ncouragtng hand to all American ! endeavors to reach, if not surpass, any other nation in any thing which lies within the grasp of i human ingenuity and exertion. We never could exactly understand why Congres*, at its last session, should have failed to extu d to this line the snme facilities which were pranled to the other lines?one of which has since detpiitched a fin*- vessel for California and the Pacific. The Ocean Steam Company had two Vfttels afloat, and were on the eve of launching a third, which, there was every reason to believe, wou d surpass the first two in speed, as well hs in burthen. Had the same course been pursued toward th? m as was followed in regard to the companies above referred to, the building o( the ^eugm' j ol more rapidity|than it now doei. la addition to the security furnished by this vessel herself, which would be more, in proportion to the advance proposed, than that afforded by other vessels, the government would have been guaranteed by the active resources of the company, furnished by a well-established business. The policy of the gov^ ernment, which led to the formation of these coua tracts, would have been carried out. The United States want steamships afloat, ready to be taken I into their service if occasion require it. It se^ms to have been a sad oversight to have neglected this opportunity of hastening the completion of the Franklin, as well as a gross act ot partiality, which u. i., ~r I'ugui uih iu uttfc oi'|>cairu uit uir irt'uiuo ui uuu press. It was consistent policy to have promoted the views of those companies who had not yet sue* ceeded in getting one ship afloat; but it was very inconsistent with that policy to have neglected that one which had already done so much at such a sacrifice ; and which, us a pioneer in the onset, had encountered and overcome difficulties which, we repeat, lay in the way of all enterprises of the kind. Hut it is reasonable to expect the ensuing session of Congress will, no doubt, place this matter right. It was brought before them late last session, and under unfavorable circumstancesThe cause, however, is a just one, and has gained strength by the delay; and all those members o' Congress who have had the subject before them' and all the facts connected with it, cannot fail to be impressed favorably toward it, and feel desirous of granting it that equal measure of justice which it rightfull) demands. Law Intelligence* Circuit Court, Oot. 19.?Before Justice Strong? Sophia Jl. Thompson vs. Andrew C. Morris.?This wu an action brought to recover damages for an alleged lander spoken by the defendant in reference to the plaintiff. From the statement of plaintiff's counsel, it appeared that plaintiff was an intimate companion of a lady named Skinner, and resided with her until she died; that Mrs. Skinner, by her will, bequeathed to plaintiff $100, and deposited the same in a savings ; bank in this oity. Upon her death, the plaintiff took I possession of the bank book, and retained it. Several i attempts were made by the executors to get the book I from her, which she resisted, insisting that the money I washer's. The defendant,who is a counsellor and attorney of the Supreme Court, was employed by the executors in relation to the effects of the deceased, and among other matters, called on the plaintiff's brother, on the subject of the bank book; and, in the conversation with him, he stated that '' she had stolen a book, and was a thief." This was the libel complained of For the delence, it was stated, that defendabt went to her brother in his character of a lawyer, and as the adviser of Mrs. Skinner's executors; that he never intended seriously to charge her with having stolen the book; all be meant was, that by retaining it, she loft herself liable to prosecution.

Defence, that they were purchased by a third party. Adjourned to to-morrow (thii morning.) Before Judge Daly.?Bradford B. Williams tif. Emerald Wheeler.? This was an action of replevin to try the right to certain property levied on under an execution. It appeared that a judgment was obtained in the Marine Court against the plantifffor $80 and costs; and on the 16th of May, 1847, an exeoution was issued against the goods of the defendant in the execution, and a levy made. Soon after a private arrangement was entered into between the parties, and a portion of the goods sold for $116. which was amply sufficient to pay the amount of the execution; the goods remaining unsold were left in possession of the i plantifi until the 6th of June following, when the delrndant, who was the offiaer that made the levy, came ' asaln and took the remainder of the iroodaaw&v thn plaintiff alleged that a mfflcient quantity oi the goods to satisfy the execution.being sold the remain1 der of the property was discharged from the execution, and the defendant had no right to levy a second time ; r ! for the defendant it was insisted that the unsold pro' ptrty was not discharged from the first ievey ; that , 1 the legal possession was still in the defendant or the r | sheriff's officer, and that the plantiff's remedy was by > an action for au excessive levy, or an action of trest | pass. The Judge told the jury, that if they believed that the flrtt levy was discharged, the plantiff would ' | be entitled to a verdict; if, on the other hand, the ex1 ecution was in force on the 6th June, (and there was i : some diflioulty in regard to coming to a conclusion on that point, as there was no explanation of the private ' I arrangement entered into between the parties previous i to the rale.) the defendant would be entitled to a verI diet, and the plant fT? remedy would be by an action for an excessive levy, or by an action of trespass, i I Verdict for plantiff; f 100 for damages, ktc. United Statu Commuiiosf.R's Cirict, Oct. 19.? 1 Before A. Gardiner, Esq. ? Charge oj Revolt?In rt i James Austin, Timothy Jlenry, and ten otheri.?The investigation of this case was concluded to-day. After hearing the argument of counsel on both sides, the , Commissioner discharged Austin on the ground that f he wa* in irons before the revolt commenced, therefore he could take no part in it. although he was the I original cause; and committed the remaining eleven , for trial, they having struck off work, and perempI torilv refused to return to their dutv unless Austin was discharged. Cot rt or General Sessions, October 19 ?Before the Recorder and Aldermen Deforest and Hatfield.? Case Postponed ?In the case of William Darlington, alias Thomas Johnron. alias Bristol Bill, John Clark. alias Clarkson, Joseph Murray, alias Radford, and t'Larles Garret, alias Wheeler, all under indictment, charged with burglary in the third degree, in having broken into the (tore of Charles M. Naury, No. 88 Pine street, on the night of the 27th September. This is a heavy case, and the court expressed an unwillingness to take it up at the present term; it waa therefore put off till November. Pleas of Guilty.?James Rodgers. who was released from the State prison last March, was again brought up before this court, on a charge of having, on the 29th of August last, stolen from the state room No. 20, of the steamboat Rip Van Winkle, a watch worth $35, the property of Robert J. Mtlligan. Rodgers plead guilty of grand larceny, and was sentenced to the State prison for the term of thre? Tears. Ilenrv Horton. <i/km Charles Lambert. plead guilty to a charge of grand larceny, in stealing,on the 10th of September, a horse, wagon, and harness, worth $200, frem Thomas N. H. Renville, of 03 Carmine street. The prisoner hired the horse for the ostensible purposo of going to Greenwood Cemetery; but instead of returning to Carmine street, he drove to Bergen Hill, and traded oil the establishment for a cow and calf and ten dollart in money. Titter Kenney and Geo. Nay lor were brought up. charged with haTing committed an assault and robbery on Patrick Cox. on the 16th of September last, when they knocked Cox down, in Mulberry street, and stole a watch, chain, and seals, worth $30. The prisoners plead guilty to assault and battery. The court accepted the plea, and the prisoners were remanded for sentence. As there pleas all obviated the necessity of long trials, the District Attorney found himself unprepared with witnesses, eto., to proceed with the case* next in turn upon the calendar, and the court therefore adjourned lor the day. Si'ecial Sessions, Octobrr 17.? Before the Recorder and Aldermen Libby ' and CrolluBrutality and id Htward ?George K. I'felstar, a aegar maker, at No. 171 Avenue B, war this morning called upon to defend himself before this Court, on a oharge of having most brutally flogged a small lad named Jeremiah ( aliaban. It appeared frooi the testimony, that the prisoner, who is a Oerman, took the child, who li a bright boy. about 11 years of age. from the Orphan Asylum. in rrlnce street, in May. 1H47 and bad bim indentured to bim for the purpose of learning the art and *ijsteries of manufacturing aegars About the 20th of .August last, tho little fellow went to Dr. Sweeney, who in one of the director* of the institution, and con.plained that he bad been sererely beaten by hi* employer; that the punishments were often repeated, and begged the drctor to interfere in hln behalf. After nalitljiiig himself that the boy had been abused, Dr. 8 directed bim to take off his clothe*, which being done hi* back presented a sight which wa* itself the mu*t elcquent witne** in hi* behalf. The skin of the entiie back wa* bruiird and discolored, presenting the appearance of hardened liver. There were also marks of bruises upon b?* arms, and some upon his breast. On seeing tnis, Dr Sweeney took the boy with him to the police office. and lodged a complaint against I'felster. Police Justice Osborn was about to send an ord?r for the deli?ery of the boy'* indentures; but when he looked upon his mangled lle*h, be tore up the order, and made out a warrant for the arrest of the inhuman master. The officer who made the arrest obtained also from the shop the implement with which the torture had been inflicted, which h?> t? ?? ? * IU part cf a bed cord, doubled and twisted. no M to present k diameter of about one Inch, and a length of some two feet; at one end were two knots, at the other, one: and the physicians were of the opinion that tome of th? fever* bruises were inflicted by the two heavy knot*. After being removed from l'feistrr. the boy was placed under the guardianship of another, but more humane, segar manufacturer, to whom he (fives the best satisfaction The trouble appears to have been, that the apprentice would only make from .150 to 390 sejrars per day. wbi!e hi* master demanded that he rhould make 400 It wax, however, proven that expert journeymen only make 860 good, and 600 common ock. per diem The defence wan very lame, and the Court found tbe prisoner guilty, and vent him to the penitentiary for the term of three month* And the verdict of the spectators in court was like that osoasignally brought in by WetUrn juriea. vli.?

Madame Anna Bishop a| pearrd again last erening in '' La Sfogato," a piece which giTog her the opportunity of introducing sere' ral if her wontexquisite pTforiiiauoca. The execution of several of her airs was of nucha character, last evening. as to call for a repetition, and the fair songstress acceded to the demand by produelug again the delightful melodiei. Mr Chapman, as Hezekiah Whittle, was ax comical as ever?be waa, indeed, irresistibly i...11. -vii.. *l_ i, vi. l' rick Htzcodfish Tiptop, afforded considerable imaieinent to the large audience present on the occasion. Mr. Walcot. as Mr. Starr Hunter, the enterprising manager, was fully up in bis part, as, in fact, were all who participated in the enactment of " La Sfogato." In the early part of the evening the farce of the '' Ladder of Love " wus performed, and Messrs. Moorhouse, Dawson, and Chapman, as well as Miss Rose Telbin, Mrs. Dyott, and Mis* Graham, appeared to the very beat advantage. The Monplaisirs made another appearance in their favorite ballet of " Esmeralda," which was received, as well as Madame Bishop's singing, with cheers aud bouquets. The draaiatio representations at this house all partake of the high character which ought to mark the performauces upon the public stage. There is no condescending to low devices, to surfeit audiences with vulgar and extravagant scenes. All is unobjectionable and respectable upon the stsge, and ail the representations are hailed with unqualified approbation by those who witness them.

The burlesques which are introduced, are of a legitimate, though amusing character; and while offensive caricatures are avoided, many points of real significance and true wit are made, and thut with an effect which tells. Nothing can be lost by this course. The manager who caters for the public taste in dramatic affsirs. like the publican who supplies our more corporal wants, will receive respectable patronage, if he do but serve up resectable dishes. Eowkrv Thkatre.?The patriotic style of drama is always sure to be popular with the many, even if only filled with clap-trap sentiment* and boinbastlo is but too Irequently the case with the majority of pi eces of this kind which are produoed, but, when a piece like ?' Putnam" is brought forward, combining, as it doe*, a most interesting story?founded on actual historical events, excellent language, a great variety of character, beautiful scenery, and, though last not least, the wonderful equestrian feats, which are such prominent featurs in the piece, it is not surprising that " Putnam 'should bathe immense favorite it is. The acting of J. M. Scott, TUton, Winuns, N. B. Clarke, Jordan, J. Dunn, Mrs. Jordan, Mrs. Sutherland, not torgetting Mr iirown, the splendid equestrian and excellent actor, all tend te make the piece go dfl' with much eclat. The danoing of Ciooca and Neri, and the extravaganza of " Kortuulo'' were the other performances of the night. " Kartunlo" is also a most favorite piece. Miss Taylor as the fortunate young wanderer, looks most charming and aots in the most lovely manner. To-night, Mr. Tyte, the musical director, takes his benefit The bill'he presents is a first rate one, consisting of 'Putnam,'' dancing by Signora Ciooca, Signor Neri and Mr. Smith, and the beautiful spectacle of " Cherry and Fair Star." Broadway Theatre.?A vast amount of abstraot entertainment was announced, and admirably perfoimed, at this theatre last night, inoluding comedy, both dramatie and operatic. In the former, the farce of the '> Omnibus," admirably represented, gave full Fcope to the characters to whom we bare heretofore aligned the meiit fully due to their respective Identifications. To the comic opera, as popular as it la peculiarly amusing, of'-L'Klifir d'Amore," we hare alto paid that deference to the distinguished merits of the Seguin tionjie, which embraces a range of musioal talent of rare combination, amongst whom may be enumerated Mr. and Mrs Seguin, .Messrs. Reeves and Leacb, and a chorus of no insiderable merit. The gtm of the evening, however, ahined most brilliantly in the judicioua (.election of the second act of the " Bohemian Girl," which seems to derive, by every repetition, a further accession of popularity. The music, as familiar as household language, loses none ?f its charms by repetition. Attractive and familiar it must long continue to attract attention, when ; placed in the hands of such accomplished artists 1 as compose the talented oompany now so sucI cessfully performing at tho Broadway. The entertainments were conolnded with that applause justly due to the merits of the respective perform! ere. We hope we are not premature inannounoing | the approach of the first benefit of Col. Mann, in the ensuing week?perhaps on Thursday n?xt. If public 1 spirit and enterprise ever merited a due appreciation, it ought to be cordially, universally and liberally exi ercised towards him, who not only sacrificed the oapltal he has long and Industriously accumulated, for the benefit and improvement of the drama, but given to I the city an embellishment in architectural beauty and symmetry, externally as well as internally, ef unsurpassed magnificence For this evening, the '< Daugh| ter of the Hegiment " is announoed, in the English i language; no slight recommendation to those who pre 1 let tbat universally lntelligDie medium lomerrenon jargon of the li Hlie du Regiment." National Theatre.?Ivanhoe, with all it* beautiful scenery, splendid dresses, fine armor, and the excellent acting of Chanfrau, Cartlitch, C. Burke, Stark, Pardcy, &c , continue to please the audiences 1 amazingly, and, as a piece of high merit, it will always be welcome, whenever it may be presented. Mr. Talmer's acting as Robin Hood, the yeoman, is excellent. Mr P. is a ver" "Teat favorite at the he works hard, and is always well prepared with the parts be is cant in, all of which he enacts most judiciously. Mr. Herbert too, ia a very great favorite; he | is a most excellent comic actor, and in what we believe is technically termed the u mahinir nn " nr ' dr?PMDg. a character, he la first rate. " Ivanhoe" has been a *uccessful card for the manager, and will probably have a long ran. The burlesque of " Mr. Macgreedy," and the famous " Mysteries and Miseries," concluded the evening's amusement. The I " Mysteries and Miseries,'' will not be played after ! this week, or rather, after thin and to-morrow evening, 1 and if any have not as yet feen it, let them not omit going, as it is a drama that ought to be seen by all. 'ihe burlesque go*a oil nightly, with shouts of applauFe. Chaofrau's imitations are most surprising, i ('or to-night's bill we refer to our list of amusements. Bi fton'i, Chamhefs Street.?The beautiful and 0lassic drama of " Dombey and Son," of which, and o the actors la which, we have so frequently spoken so highly, (as well aa of other pieces and actora, for years paat.) with unbought and unthanked warmth and ardor, was performed again lant night, with unabated skill and eiTect, and undiminished applause and admiration. The H Sliees," followed, an ephemeral piece of no merit whatever, as to the dramatical composition, but of much merit aa far aa relatea to the performed and the scenery. As to the character which represents a renorhtfr for the oreas. as a vwnal extortionate character, euough has already bean paid, and we will my no more ?)>out it. Actors bare a right, i' they please, to misrepresent and abuse that class of gentlemen, to whose writing* and criticisms they owe much, if not half their fame and fortune. That tbere are aome low-lived, base, ignorant, and venal person* hanging about the pre**, we make no doubt, but we think reporter* in general are not such a* they wtre represented in this character. We thought, from the first, that it was not worth while for the corps of honorable reporter* to notice thi* ailly character, wbloh i* not a oharacter or representation, but a simple act of meanness, performed by one who 1* made torepresent a newspaper. 'J'o say the leaat of it, this was wrong; for if *uch acts are performed by any newspaper. this were too trifling a mode to expose them, aid if was a malicious falsity and invention, reflecting ungenerously and unjuitly upon a class of men, who generally are an honor and an ornament to the community. But, we understand Mr. Burton disclaim* any such intentions; if so, he pught to take entiiely out of the way any evidence of *uch unkind intentions. lie ought to know ttat tbere is a point about the body of a man. very delicate and very touchy, called the point of honor, and some highminded, high-spirited, and honorable young men have been roughly handled on this touchy point. We do think some respeot is due to the feeling* of gentlemen and soholar*. and that they should ui in u u u ui j liaiuivu uriure me ejea 01 me public, aa a baae. mean, and unworthy clang of paltry beggara cannot speak for every journal of this city, but for the Herald we can My. there exists no establishment lu the world conducted with more honor, mere liberality, or more correctness. If the proprietor knew of any one In hia establishment guilty of conduct opposed to the pura honor and rectitude which diatinguiahea ita mnmgement, we know he would Immediately discharge him from hia employ, as we know in rome eaaen baa been done. The ridiculous notion about " black mail," aa conneoted with the Herald establishment, only exiata In the malicious mlnda and infameua Inventions of a few dlareputable and baFe rivals, who are dying every day with grief and vexation at the triumphant career and well-merited success of the univeraal Nnr Ytrk Herald, liat enough of thia subject. We regretted at the flrat that any notice waa taken by the reportorial corpi of thla silly libel upon them, and we are perfeotly aatiafled with the gentlemanly and candid explanations and molllSoations which Mr. llurton, like an honorable man. haa cheerfully made. There remaina, however, a little episode to thia little affair, on which we will give our opinion. Some reportera, we are Informed, went and h If fed when the above oharacter came upon the atage ; offence waa taken at thia we think wrongly, for it ia the inalienable, lndefelaible, and Imprescriptible right of the public to hiss whenever they chunae. Actora cannot, dare not, curtail thla right from the public, to par* judgment upon them and their ; tbelr pieces But. furthermore, upon the hissing an actor name forward, and Invited gentlemen to explain the leanoni of their binding This wan unusual. A gentlemen then came forward to explain, on thla invitation. and the same person who invited him then attacked and kicked him away Thin waa more than unuMial? It was uncourteous As generally happens in such case*, the actori were more offended, who did thin wrong, than those to whom the wrong was done. But enough . the reporters have maintained and asserted the honor and dignity of their character!, and the manager has responded, courteously and satisfactorily, to their reclamations ; therefore, after shaking hands, and wishing each other well, the curtain drops on the whole affair, and? err nut unmet. Nihlo'*, A?to* Pi.aff We witnessed last eTenlng| with great pleasure a repetition of Mr. Macrcady'a "Hamlet." We have no occasion to qualify in the slightest degree the high pralM we have before be t towed upon the impersonation The actor master * the grand difficulty which very few are able to "taster to prererve a nice, yet palpable dlatlnotlon between | own mind, the visits of his father> ghost, and the fearful disclosure* wbioh ' harrow up his soul." In Mr. j i Macready's delineation there is no confusion of the j ri al wilh the feigned uo clip shod reading to perplex the nentt1, and we must in ju~ti*e add, none of lhat clap-trap extravagance that han been charged upon i hiui in tb? part, if we were to take exception at all, it would be to an over precision, although such an exception might be unjust, a* in ''Hamlet" morn than in an; other of Sbak?| eare's characters, precision is most absolutely essential, as it is the one in whioh, least of all, an intelligent audience can tolerate that roughness and unevrnness wh<ch may be easily overlooked in obaracters requiring a lower stand- : ard ?f art tor their delineation. We canaot attempt to instance any portions of the part, , evincing core especial merit than the others-The death scene, as are all Mr. Macready's death j scents, was strikingly impressive and beautiful. W? rejoiced to see Mr. Crisp cast for Laertes. We have i seldom teen so good a one. It was carefully studied, and handsomely and gracefully enacted. The consequence was, that the last Boene was not marred, aB we have frequently ms. past the prlnoipal actors, power to uiend it. Mr, Crisp's reading of hi* part, his enunciation and his bearing on the stage all merit the highest praise. Mr. Clarke's Horatio was very creditable, as was Mrs. Jones's Queen. Mr. Chippendale, as Polonius, and Mr. T Placide as the grave j d'gger, were most excellent. We have never seen the j parts better done. We cannot say as much of Mr. Hjder's Ghost. We shall only say that we were ' often tempted to exclaim with Hamlet, "Alas! poor ghost." Mr. Macready appears this evening as "King ' Lear," with Mr. Vandenhoff as Ldgar. Broadway Cihou*.?Last evening the Broadway circus was completely tilled with the elite of the city, to j witness the astonishing performances onaoted at this ; delightful place of amusement. The performance commenced with a grand entree by the whole company, followed by tbe daring horsemanrhip of Master Williams. which fairly tock tbe audience by surprise. The sailor boy, by Master Hernandei, was a bold and .wonderful piece of riding, ana by the renewed applause, showed conclusively that the spectators understood his merit. The British acrobats were very clever. The two ponies,Romeo and Juliet, are certainly two sweet creatures, and act their parts with great correctness. Th? alank .. v I, i hi t In n hv Mr Ituuupu mmm ? .Urin.r one, and filled the hearts of all, fearful that the rope might break and let him fall. Tbe national scene, 11lustrutiDg General Tajlor, Santa Anna, &o.. by Mr. Darius, was extremely Rood, and brought down great applause. Mr. 8 l.eo, played with two cannon bails. one weighing 12 lbs and the other 18 lbs., which are throwu aboat with as much ease as an ordinary man would Ufe two balls made of wood, of the same Bize. The great principal act on horseback, by young Hernandez, astonished all beholders. The concluding piece was a comical one, in which the wit and by play of the olown are brought into requisition, convulsing the audience with laughter. Thisoircus is decidedly the best and most genteel evtr got up in this city. The company who visit nightly are highly respectable ; and as regards the polioe arrangements, which are under the charge of Prince Jchn Davis, together with the other arrangements of the houea, are most excellent. We advise all who wish to see beautiful horsemanship, and spend a pleasant evening, to go to the Broadway circus. Christy'* Minstrels are progressing as successfully as usual, and their rooms are as much crowded as ever. Nothing can be pleasanter than an evening pasted at Mechanio's Hall, listening to the beautiful singing, and tbe other excellent performances, which theBe phKoropbers present to their patrons. They are a first-rate set of singers, and ought to be heard by all. New Room.?At this establishment the philosophical exhibitions of Miarteni and Levasseur, and singular performances of Mr. Nellis, the armless man, are the attractions, and that they are powerful ones, the crowded condition of the New Room every evening will show. There ia not a more instructive exhibition in New Voik. Campbell's Minstrels sing, dance and joke, night After night, with much eclat Their puna, conundrum*, (fcc.. are all capital, and where they can obtain such an immenle assortment of them we know not, aa they are never guilty of bringing forward stale onea?the fame with their aongs?every evening they present a fresh programme. To-night they will give a moat excellent one. Mclodeon ?This snug house is doing a fine business, and White's band of Ethiopian singers keep the excitement up in good stjle. They are a well-organized company, and worthy of patronage. Grand Concert.?Mr. and Madam Leati. very eminent vocalists, who have lately arrived in this country, intend giving a concert at the Apollo Rooms, on Tuesday evening, the 24th of Ootober. They will be assisted by Messrs. Joseph Burke and Riohard Hoffman, and the whole will be under the direction of Mr. | Timm. Madam Leati possesses a soprano voice of the i first ordvr, and her style and execution are truly exl cellent. We heard her sing an Italian scena, which Bhe rendered with gr?at sweetneaaof tone, and infinite musical skill. Mr. Leati also deserves to be noticed as | one possessing a fine baritone voioe, which he uses with a science which evidences the highest marks of a good musical education. Tabi hnaci.k.? Germania Musical Society.? The seventh concert of this highly talented band of performers took place last evening, and was better attend] ed than any other previous soiree. We felt very glad 1 to see that the public seem to wish to judge and appreciate the extreme genius and ability of the Gsrmania band, and *e hope that their sanction will spread away; and bring many hearers to tbe worthy German musioians. TLe "Hungarian National March/' oy uung i, was (itcd in an iu granaeur -ti to the grand overture, 'Jessondy." by Spohr, it is, to our taut*, more remarkable for iicely finished details, : than for breadth of effect, it was. n^vefthelessj given 1 with great power. Much credit is due to M. Sonulr, for his grand violin solo, in wbicb be showed himself a master on bis instrument. The ooncert ended with a " Pot Touri, La Fille du Regiment/' which afforded the amateur of musio to have a hearing, on a new scale, of tbe sweet muslo ?f Doniietti. Tbe (Jermania Musical Society will give their second concert in Brooklyn, on Saturday evening, (to-morrow,) at tbe Female Academy. TiiC programme, it is said, will be very ohoice. We hope It will be well attended. Miss Noiithall.?This talented artist and sweet warbler gives her farewell conoert at tbe Female Academy, Brooklyn, on Monday evening next. She will be assisted by Strakosch, tbe great Russian pianist. Mr. Th. Mayer and Antonio Barili. We hope her ' concert will be as well attended as her merits, as a vocalist, deserve. M. Dksibe Ikelhkimer.?This young violinist gave, on Wednesday evening, a private soiree to the members of tbe press, and a few musieal amateurs, whioh | proved to be very successful. He is undoubtedly a i brilliant "star," and his splendid talents will, no doubt, be duly appreciated in this country. He is not yet sixteen years old, possesses a very intellectual j face and tine figure; and young as he is, be has already j attained the point tf superiority whioh many performers on this difficult instrument, the violin, have only reached after long labors. Tne style of M. Ikelbeimer's playing is corsidered to be that of Vieux> temps, and be excels, in the passages which require force, expression, and pathos. F.very body present on the occasion, seemed delighted at tbe strength and ability of his bow. the clearness and power of bis adat-ioi cantabile and tiaccato, and the perfeot ease with which be performed tbe most difficult passages. We Lave no doubt this young French artist will beoome a favorite in the concerts in which he will present himself to tbe public, and we hope he will soon take an opportunity to be heard Mr. Timm, who accompanied M Ikelheimer, performed, as usual, his duty with great skill and taste. Herri Hehz.?We are informed that this distinguished musical composer and pianist will give a grand concert, in this city, on Friday week. Mr. Charles Burke, the eminent violinist, has arrived in the city, and announces his Intention of devoting his time, to the teaohing of the piano forte and violin. Ills apartments are at 80 Leonard street. City Politic*. NOMINATIONS FOR CONGRESS. We have already stated the result of the democratic ballottings for delegates to the congressional districts in the 3d. 4th, and 6th districts. For the 6th district, oomprising the six upper wards of this city, we learn that John M. Bradhurst, will probably be the hunker,or Cass and Butler candidate, and DaTid Dudley Field, or Willis Hall, the Van Duren candidate. There Is a strong opposition among the Taylor men to the nomination of Brooks, of the Krprrtt. A lender of the native Americana, who are about 3,000 strong ' In that diatrlot. and all for Taylor, inform* us that not ! one of that party will vote for Brooks, Besides thin, the foreigners, the Irish and German* particularly, of which the whig* have heretofore had from 1,000 to 1,500 In their ranks, are dead against Brooks! To thaso forces fhould oe added a large portion of those Whigs who weie oliglnally tor Taylor, and* who will not forgvie the editor of tho Exprtu for hi* long continued abuse of " Old /.ack," as the "spontaneous combustion candidate." Then there is Mr. N. U. Blunt, who takes the stump against the regular whig candidate, but not as one himself, and threatens to leave no stone unturned to defeat him. If the barnburners' vote should not exoeed 3,000 in the district, it is thuughtthat Mr. Brooks cannot bo eiected. Hamilton Hah carried the district, in 1842, against * John McKeon, by about 200 majority ; and Mr. Campbell. the native American candidate, with the aid of the whiga. had even less than that majority, over Kly Mo<<re. in 18 '4. In 1846 It waa equally close between | Monroe and Jackson In the fifth district, comprising the 8th, 0th, and 14th wards, we learn that the chances for the whig nomination are In favor of John W. f.atson, chairman of the whig executive committee. After many ballets, on Tuesday evening he received 18 votes of the '2% In tLe convention. 17 being deolared necessary to a choice. 1 he number required was then changed by vote to 16, when the Klghtb ward delegates, who were opposed to Latson. withdrew in a rage.

The democratic State convention met in the Sta^ House, at 10 o'olock, this morning, and was organised by appointing the lion. Chas. O. Atherton, President, and General Pierce and Jared W. Williams, Vice Presidents. The present Incumbent declined the nomination for Governor. Speeches were made by Messrs. Atherton, Mudge, drove, and lien. Fierce. The latter was greeted enthusiastically on his appearance in the convention. He said that when he resigned bis seat in the U. S. Senate, he desired to retire from political offloe, but not from his party. He looked back with pride upon the history of the democratic party for the last twenty years. During that time the whigs had been continually predloting ruin to the oountry; but under perlty. The whigfl had repudiated all their principles. The principles of a party constitute a party. Tha whigs had no platform; therefore were no longer ft party. The democrats bad not failed any where to avow for what they were oontending. They went for Cass and Butler, because they were the imperaoua> tions of their principles. He believed that no man was permitted to believe that Taylor was not with them. It was idle to ask Taylor's opinion on any great question at issue. He could demonstrate that Ohio and Pennsylvania was as sure for Cass, as New Hampshire. The pathway before the demooratio party was open, and the sky olear and bright. Judge Ooue wished to know if Oeneral Taylor would appoint Daniel Webster Seoretary of State, and dismember New Hampshire, and give part of (it to the British or some other power He characterised the dismemberment of Maine, as bad as that of Poland. Samokl Dinsmork, of Keene, was nominated for Governor, on tbe second ballot. A set of resolutions exprerslng their determination to stand by the democratic platform, declaring that ft nomination which waa not fit to be made, as not fit to be supported. The Trial of Cashier Olcott. Albany, Oct. 10,1818. In the case of Theodore Olcott, on trial for embeiclinR the funds ot the Ogdensburgh Bank, the jurv this morning returned into court, after a whole night'* session, and reported themselves seven for acquittal and five for conviction. They were then discharged. Whether there may be a new trial, is an undooided question. The Baltimore Knees. Baltimore, Oot. 19,1848.
