Venezuelan Alhtlr*. On tlie outside of this day'? paper, we publish ^ujle a lengthy manifesto of the Venezuelan General, Paez. It is an interesting document, on many accounts, a? it not only gives a full and connected account of the origin of the present difficulties in that republic, but it also gives some remarkable disclosures regarding attempts made in former years to consolidate the three Colombian republics of Venezuela, Ecuador, and New Granada, into a monarchy. We are aware thai this story of a monarchy, to be established in South America by the Kuroi*an lowers, is an old affair; and, as the European monarch9 are at present situated, they have probably trouble enough to keep their own crowns se- j cure on their heads, without crossing the Atlantic I to ettablifh more monarchies, there is not much probability of their ever doing much iii this way ; still an expose of such intrigues cannot but be intereRtinp. a. The translation which we publish o{ this mani- j lesto of General Paez, was furnished us by John ] B. Purroy, Ksq.. vhe Venezuelan Consul at this 1 l>ort, and can be relied on. The American Conprcss ? Its Powltlon anil Influence In the Civilized 'World A few weeks ago a very serious and important article appealed in the columns of the London Tiwrs, in which it was stated that the three prin. cipa? legislative bodies in the civilized world, at this epoch in the history of man, are the British , Parliament, the Frenrh National Assembly, and | the American Congress. The idea thus put forth by the great organ of that portion of public opinion in Europe, which may be called stationary or re" active, strikes the mind with considerable force. Although it has noi the merit of novelty or originality, \ et the combination presented, and the iact of including the American Congress as one of the great ^ementsof modern progress and civilization is an acknowledgment from that quarter that has bem w rung from them by recent events in Kurope? and l?5 the position gradually assumed by this country during the last few years. The British I'u:Lament i* an old, and somewhat autiquated (Kipular assembly, rendered in some degree sympathetic with the spirit of the age by recent reforms and changes in its cosstitution. The French Na" tional Assembly is ol a more recent date, and may be considered the organ of the great moving popular jmisees, not only ot France, but of all Kurope. The American Congress has reached its present great moral influence and power over the public inind of both continents during the last half century, and by pursuing a course of policy about equi distant from that dictated by the narrow and restrictive spirit of the British Parliament, and the tumultuary and ever-changing course of the French National Assembly. In the present position of the civilized world wt-are firmly persuaded that the proceedings of the American Congress will hereafter attract more <f ti e attention of the old world than they have at aiiy eriod in our history. It is not alone the ? .\etci.-e of the legislative power of this country, numbering a population verging on twenty-five in. lion?, that will distinguish the future history of ti.f American Congress. In some respects our r.ut 1'n .1 Voislatiirr jit Washington will he con" t-Kicifd the model of similar bodies in Europe, jnd ti.<* g eat teacher ol )>olttical truths to the ^lest masses of the civilized world. A legislative tii> Tory of such a body, conceived in a comprehcnsvf ;?i:if, and written in n condensed and ;>hilofro .lt cal form, would be of invaluable benefit to all coin 11&119 and statesmen of both continents. Since i lie organization of our government it appears that e\? n liiousand diflerent enactment* or laws were |m- -d by both houses of Congress, and that, 111 ilie . m;e period, the whole number of vetoes put by orr Presidents, on measures passed by that bod), ale as follows: ? by Oeorge Washington 2 men Madison 0, fames Monroe 1 Andrew Jacktou .9 John Tyler It wk K. Polk Total number of retoes 26 'I hi* presents a curious view of the legislative In. wry of L ongres-, in one aspect, ai least These l'iv ma; be considered as so many practical appi cations to the people of this country of the prm11 ? contained in the United States constitution. 'J hat constitution may, therefore, be said to. he illustrated by the laws passed by Congress, and the law# are also illustrated by the decisions of the couitsol the United States passed on them Vet, hn* litt e 10 known to even the public,on this side of I he A'lmtic, of those particular features and l ?r uiiar principles which have governed the Ameru in Congress and American jurispiudenre, in iliai rngth of time. Since then, the country has "inv n from three millions to nearly twentyfive, ai<J has extended it:> territory to an arra ihree r.mes large an that ol the original t)m??eci ."rates < "< mmerce, manufaetures, polilio, ic'tytwu, and the social elements ol society, |ia v?* a I. Iwen more or less affected by those law^, | ? ,,i? ileynny he called, practical applications of ti e Artofican constitution, through the action ol < <tr><?r*es and the President. I| it possible to have lull report? of the pro- | ? rtlT"" both ho jet ol Congress, commencing with the first fusion, and coming down to the last, they would contain the best material* for a comprehensive and philosophical view ot the history of tliat body, and the progresa ot republican principles applied to practical purpose*, under the decisions of Congress. The time has now come. also, when the proceedings of such a body aa the American Congress will exercise a more important influence on the civilized world than it w asevere.t >ected they would. The British Parliament may be considered the organ of past times and thf interpreter ot past institutions. Its policy presents a barrier to the rapid progress of free prinriples throughout Europe. It is at the head of the party which stands still, or, in other words, the conservative power of the old world. The National Assembly of France, on the other hand, occupies a directly opposite position It may be considered the organ ot the advanced ideas of the human race, but it is vugue, practical and philosophical, all mixed together, without order and in great confusion. The American Congress, without any of the reactive or stationary spirit which prevails in the British Pailiament, is also removed from those wild and impracticable theories?those sudden and overwhelming impulses, which too frequently mark the character and progress of the French Assembly. The time has come, therefore, tor the debates in our Congress to become the lessons of political wisdom to the whole of liurope. and any system by which those debates can be given in full length and rapidly to the world, would not only increase the influence of this country on the affairs of Europe, but also enlighten our public men, dispel the spirit of party, elevate intelligence, and make intellect more powerful in our Presidential contests, than factional or local interests of any kind. For this purpose, if Congress were to expend from fifty to even two hundred thousand dollars each session, for publishing mil reports of their debates in the journals of the largest circulation in our principal cities?comprising New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and Baltimore?such a plan would be of a more public and nationa) benefit than the millions which are foolishly wasted in various ways on the party journals of no circulation, and other jobs based on corruption and favoritism. The Presidential Contest?The Secretary of State on the Stump.?We published, in yesterday's Herald, a short synopsis of a speech delivered by the Hon. James Buchanan, Secretary of State of the United States, at a political meeting, held in the city of Washington, on Friday evening last, in favor of Cass and Butler, the democratic nominees for the Presidency and Vice Presidency, received by means of the telegraph, and published b> us exclusively, and in to-days paper our readers will find a lull report of the same, which we : received by the mail. Apart from the distinguished source from which it emanated, this speech will be read with great interest, by politicians and ; the public, in every part of the Union. In one respect at least, the election which is about to take place, is peculiar?we mean in the number of distinguished men who have taken the stump in the support of the candidates of their respective parties. It was only a short time ago that Mr. Dallas, the Vice President of the United I States, presided at a political meeting in favor o^ Cass and Butler, and to-day we publish a speech made by the Secretary of State. We are not j sure, as regards the latter, but Mr. Pallas, if the first Vice President of the United States, since .u~ ?..? ?f .u.. ? >-J I itic ui^ain/aiiuii i/i uic ^uvciuiucui, UIUI Q1QV | while holding office, make a speech of this decription. The other day, too, Mr. Johnston, j the whig candidate lor Governor of Pennsy!vania, delivered speeches on his own behalf ( in several parts of that State, and it is sup- ! posed that those speeches conduced in a great ; degree to his election. Candidates for the Go- i vernorship of other States have done the same during the present fall: and we are not certain | but that Mr. Polk, President of the Union, will descend from the executive chair and stump it ! through the Union for Cass and Butler. In case ' he make up his mind to do so, we hope that he J will be in better spirits and better health than he was in when he visited New York last summer. We would advise him, too, to avoid drinking j water as soft as our Croton, for reasons well i known to himself, so as to guard against a con- 1 tinirency of an unpleasant nature, which marred, to a great degree, the enjoyment which he otherwise might have had in visiting our institutions, I and inspecting the High Bridge at Harlem. John Van Bitrex and his STi mrrno ?Sfnoi'i.ap. j Charge.?A very strange and almost unbelievable 1 charge was made against John Van Buren in our j cotempoiary, the Evening Pott, a few daya since. | A correspondent of that journal, living at New Bedford, Mass , writes to Mr. Bryant that a distinguished ex-member of Congress from this city, (alluding, evidently, to the Hon. Moses II. Grinnel,) stated before the Taylor Club of that place, that the whigs of New York had advanced money to John Van Buren, for the purpose of procuring his services in favor of the free soil movement, in order, by making a division in the democratic ranks, to enable the whigs to elect General Tay- j lor This, we believe, is the substance of the charge. Of course nothing is yet known to | the public, beyond the simple allegation put forth in the correspondence or the Evening | Port ; yet, it is evident, a* a color to 9uchji ! charge, <hat the movement of Mr. Van Buren | may have the tendency and purpose attributed ! to it by the New Bedford correspondent of Mr. 1 Bryant. We have always estimated, in forming an opinion of the probable resu't of the present i contest, that the free soil movement, of which John Van Buren is the hero and Demosthenes, may be the means of electing General Taylor, in the s&rne way as the Birney movement elected Mr. Polk four years ago. The only difference between them, in their oblation, is, that the diversion by the fiee soil movement is made from the ranks of she democratic party, while the Bimey movement detracted from the forces of the whigs of that day. I: is impossible, however, to say, positively, what will be the eflect of the free soil movement, or whether it will elect the General. until the hbsolute result shall have been ascer- i tamed. General Taylor may get an immense ma- ! jority : nnd, if he do, he will be elected without any aid from the free soil movement. On the other hand, it there should be a very close contest between General Taylor and General Cass, the free soil movement in New York will, no doubt, tend very much to give the result in favor of the hero of Duma Vista. At all events, the charge made against the prince of the barnburners, by the chief organ of the same party, is a very serious and a very grave one We do not ytt believe in its truth, because we doubt very much whether John Van Buren would act with such a purpose in the contest now pending.? The only lliinj that gives a color of plausibility to the charge is its coming from the Evtmng Pout. We think, however, that the charge should be inquired into by the persons implicated, and the truth be made out as broad as noonday Mkktino of Hetortkm.?We publish to-day a re|n>rt of a meeting held by the reporters attached to the city press, held on the evenings of the 18th and -1st inst., in reference to the drama We may make ?ome remarks on the subject at our leisure. The Crop*. The following 1* an ?x tract of a letter to tb? editor, from an intelligent and respectable cotton planter, in Hempstead county, Arkansas, dated 2f?th alt. "Corn crops, now being gathered, do not equal ei- 1 pectatlons by nearly one-fourtb, and we anticipate 1 Mine scarcity next year.

In pursuance of an invitation to the re port era 0( the New York preaB, to meet at tttoneall's Hotel, on the ISth met , to adopt such measures as they might on deliberation think proper, to uphold the dignity of their profession. The reporters convened at the above mentioned hotel on the evening named. The meeting was called to order at eight o'clock. J. C. Whitehead, M. D., was appointed chairman, and T. W. Meighan, Lsq., Secretary'. Dr. Whitkhk?o, on taking tbe chair, return*! thanks. in a few britf remarks for the distinguished honor conferred upon him H? could, he observed, have wished the; had appoiated a more competent person than himself; none one less averse ithan he was. at all times, to put himself forward in public, and to assume any prominent or conspicuous situation. To the faot of bio being, be believed, tbe senior reporter present, i it were tbe Doyen of the profession?for it was abort twenty-live years ago since he (Dr W ) was Tirst a reporter for the public press, baring been at that period repoiter at the townoourtsin Dublin?that he bad to attribute the undeserved distinction conferred upon him. It would doubtless be expected of him. and would be proper, that on taking the chair at a meeting of tbi<> kind, composed of gentlemen constituting on* among the most uesfal. honorable, and learned classes of society, that he should briefly explain, and state what he understood to be the object and purpose of this assemblage. It was well known to every gentleman present that a character had been introduced upon the stage at Burton's Theatre, in this city, whioh, as a personification of the reporters of the public press, represented them before tbe world in a 1' ;ht as base and infamous as it was unjust and untrue. His own view ofthecharacier was, that it was too contemptible to deserve noticing. Other gentlemen, however, belonging to the press, and connected with various establishments in this city, thought differently, and were of the opinlun, that inasmuch as this character points collectively at the reporters of the press, purports to be an embodiment of them, and is calculated to degrade them in the public estimation, by representing them generally, as a base, venal, sordid, and dishonorable set of men, some notice at least ought to be taken of It. He, (Dr. W .) cheerfully yielded up his own views to the opinion of the msjority in this case, and entered, therefoie, most cordially Into co-operation with them. Such, then, was the objti-t of this me?ting, to devise and take such steps as may appear most calculated to vindicate the honor of reporters, and if possible, to stop the continuance of a public slander and vile and unjust aspersion, which is nightly made upon them at Burton's Theatre. Now he (Dr. W.) had the honor of Wing oonnecttd with a journal of this city, which stood deservedly high in public estimation?a journal which itself, alone, employed, in the preparation of its columns, as great a number of reporters as all the other journals of the city put together. If, therefore, reporters in general had a right to complain, as they undoubtedly had, of the matter In question, it was natural that the oomplaint shouli com* with louder tcne from those who constituted the largest body of them. While he (Dr. W.) regretted, for bis own part, that any notice whatever had oeen taken of this base and infamous imputation and public accusution. (for he thought it to be, in every possible rerpect, totally unworthy of any notloe;) yet as. perhaps, a msjority of those who bad been prominent in taking up this affair, were connected with the Utiald establishment, he must say tbat, however unworthy he thought the thing itself of any notice, yet, in his view, tbe susceptibility manifested did honor to the gentlemen who bifd taken it up, while, at the same time, their jealousy for tbe oharaoter and honor of the profession in general, deserved the thanks of the whole corps of reporters. It proved not only that each establishment with which they were severally connected, ?a- above such charges?not only tbat they themselves were above such charges?but tbat tley were also too coble, honorable, and pure in resnect to such matters, to be willing to submit ovan to the bare imputation of such, or of similar, unworthy practice*. He could not blame his friends, therefore, lor their proud and high minded susceptibility ; and be felt convinced that none but such at are guilty of. or are capable of. such practices and extortions, ctuld venture to oppose censure or throw obstacles in the way of this movement, now made by the repcrters. for the purpose of vindicating the character of the general body from such a sweeping and infunous charge, intact, whatever may be the leeult of this movement, it is calculated of itself alone, should it even fail in accomplishing any other purpore, to vindicate our common honor, and to prove to the world that, in the matter of this unjust aspersion upon ail our characters, we are iarii prtir ft ?am rrjtrocKt. It will prove to the world that tha press, and reporters for the press, are not the ba?e wretches which Mr. Burton's conttmptlble figure on the stage has represented them to be. It must convince the public, that this character of Mr Burton'r. and such similar ones, by whomsoever drawn and painted, is but a b.i.-e and calumnious fabrication, it must effectually prove this, for the guilty would be the last to court the open day; they n.n from the glare it would throw upon their deed', and dishonor always hides its face from the light of public enquiry, instead of coveting it, as we now do, by this movement. No reporter, he (Dr W.) thought, could join with the perpetrators of this outrage, to ecreen them, to apologize for them, or extenuate such a vile, infamous, and unfounded public charge, without being himself open to suspicion- destitute and regardlt ts of charscter- deficient in personal respect ?and failing in that eiprit He corps and noble jealousy for the honor of our profession, whioh ought, he thought, to animate every one ot us. With these remarks. with this f iew of the case, and this conception of the purpose and duty now before us, he would conclude by again thanking them for the honor done him; and assuring the meeting that his humble efforts would be directed to discharging the duties Imposed upon him. justly, impartially, and honorably, to the utmost of his defective ability. The first motion made was that of D. B. Lee. who proposed that the names of individuals present should be taken, together with those of the papers to which tfcey were attached After the president bad explained the otijeot i f the assemblage, the motion was entertained and debated. Mr B ifio* proposed an amendment in tha following wcrds ? "That a committee of thre^ I*.- appointed, to the ereilentiaU of n ea?l>ers. an J that the vord of each individual U- acknowledged na rech credential, he statin? to wliat paper or pajers lie is attaohed in New York city." It was further moved and seconded, that the chairman should apprint raid committee, and he accordingly appointed Messrs. Bangs. Hamilton, and Otis.

Simokto^* then offered tbe following preamble and resolution Wfceieas, The Reporters of the N w Vork pren hav? witness ed an attempt to malign the el aracter of their I'rofession, on the part of tl.e maLa* er ot Burton's Theatre, by the iatroductim on tie fcte/c of that tetahlU! n c nt <f a fait- and libelous impersoaati'n: therefore, Resolved, That a committee. to onj:-t of throe mem He's, he aj jointed to wait on the afor* aid raanaqor. forth? purpose of iirlordii ir h ni an opportunity of explanation, and hearing ITom hui; liiadeurniinauon with regar I t ? tl.e withdrawal of the obnoxious tiara tcr. This ( renmble and ret-elutlon were violently opposed by VeJtrs. Lee and Bangs, and supported by Mr. Simonton. who vindicated tbe parties who hissed the performances at Burton's Theatre on the Saturday evening previous, from all preconcerted design to create a disturbance, or from having created any on the evening in question He said that a few days since, Mr. Burton, proprietor of Burton's Theatre, (late Talmo's Opera House,) in Chambers street, in thiicity, in'riduced upon his ttage a new drama, which was intei.d< d to represent lifeln New York, in all its various shades and colorings. In this piece there was a character representing a reporter of the city press, snd in tbe course of the performances he levies blackmall on one of the guests, at a fancy bill in the Opera Hour? In Astor I'lacs A few of the respectab'e reporters connected with the city presses, considered that tbe character in question reflected on the profegsif.n to which they belonged, and expressed their disapprobation of that particular feature of the piece on Saturday evening last, the fourteenth inst The performances were Immediately suspended, and a Mr Johnston, one of the actcrs. stepped forward and enquired tbe cause of the disapprobation After enquiring three several times for the parties who hissed to explain the cause of it. Mr. Johnston demanded, a fourtn time, that the parties should speak out, if they were gentlemen, and if tbey h*,l no explanation to maxe. to >110* me performances 10 proee*a. or otherwife they would be considered In the light of rioters. At this juncture a gentleman connected with the press attempted to make an explanation, bat wis prevented from so doing and rud "ly pushed from the stage by Mr. Johnston agisted by rreral of his mioelate* A portion of the andiimce 'hen d-manded that the gentleman should b? heard, wlille another portion refused to hear him Then commenced the disturbance wblcb was so unjustly laid at the dosr of the gentlemen who merely exercised the right of hissing, and who were prevented from making an explanation by Mr. Johnston, who so frequently demanded It. The parties then voluntarily left the theatre and were not ejected therefrom as has b?en falsely stated In some of the newspapers of the city. The preamble and resolution were violently opposed by Mr. Lee and Mt. Hangs, and. after an angry speech from each of those gentlemen, In whloh they sought to make It appear that the parties who got up the meeting were connected with the Herald and no other journal, the following substitute was offered:? Wke<eas in a Pieoe now Mnp< plajed upon thk stage ?f Burton'i theatre, a character isintrnJu el calculated to denude our profnuioa in tit eyts of the community; and wheraas.

Another noisy debate was the conseqnenoe of this iut specified presentation The prooeeding', owing to th? further disorderly mot* of persons who attended avowedly for the purpose of creating a disturbance, and Interrupting a harmonious conclusion of the movement, became very muoh confused, and, after a lengthy debate. In the eourse of which one of the speakers vsed Improper langusge. an<l another sh v>k his fist In the face of the halrman, and refuted to iibey any rules by wh'nh the deliberation* of the con jrtgaflon might be regulated, Mr. H* offered, is a substitute, the following ?

At a meeting af gentlemen connected with the prcsi o( New York, held at btoaeall'i Hotel?called for the purpose ot taking into consideration the introduction of certain words, reHeoting on theoharacter and oonduot of those connected with the pre?4, in the course of a drama now performing upon your stage?the following resolution, after debate, was adopted " Besolvcd, 1 hat a comndttee ot tire be appointed to wait upon II'. Burton, aid reoelve explanations from win; sai I committee to report at a future meeting." Tl.e following gentlemen were appointed the committee: ? Mest-r*. Otis, ot tie New York Rxfrt**, Mel^han. of the Sunday Bimontori, late of the H'a?tonyti>n Union; Houston, late reporter to the United States Senate: Stanliy, of the Poliet (Inirttr, and Whitehead, of the Herald. In qf these proceedings, the oommittee will be ready to hear fiom Mr. Burton, at luch time .iud place as may suit bis convenience. The committee think it (airly within the line of their duty t? suggest to Hr. Burton that the ineeiing of which they are the organ, considered that the press, to which they belong, is not obnouously reflected upon by the mere introduction of a representation ot the press upon tho stage, any mere than by the introduction of the representation of any other clans or proiesnon. Nor. in their >iew, is their profession any more exempt from such Judicious cenure and satire, oven, than any other. Batadireot alVyation of corruption and venality, levelled against a profession, and nightly uttered before the public, seemed to the meeting lobe so indefensible and blameworthy, as to rail not only for an indignant denial, but tor tucn prompt in i decided action in the matur, ?f to result in the w itli lraval of that which is olrjeetionable fr ra before the public. While, thi n, we do not aik of Mr. Burton to alter in any way the cmetruction or ca*t of the drama, called "New Vork in Slice*," we take leave most reflect fully to ragseet the withdrawal of those words l'rom the port of Mr. Dowiing waich attribute Tonality to the prest; and thit the committee believe would be pericttiy satisfactory to their constituents. The committee waited upon Mr. Burton, and having lead the above communication to him, left with him a copy. They were received by him with much courtesy and had an extended interview with him; in the course of which he averred that nothing was farther from his thoughts, intentions, or wishes, than to present any thing upon his stage reflecting upon, or derogatory to the press, or any gentleman or gentlemen oonnected therewith; declared himself as entertaining for it the highest respect, and the deepest interest in it, as having been for years oonneoted with it, both editorially and as a practical printer; protested that he did not view the part complained of as intended to reflect upon the press or any of Its members; and ended by agreeing that the offensive allusion to reporters of the public press, in the part, should be omitted in future representations. Solar as the committee felt authorised, they expressed entire satisfaction with the result of ; their intetviow. The committee, in conclusion, beg leave to propose for the adoption of the meeting the following resolution :? Kewlvid, That tiiis meeting do adjourn, tine die. All of whieh is respeotfully submitted, Jam its F. Otis, T. W. MciniuM, Jas. AV StMOMTOM, M. C Stani.ev. At this stage of the proceedings a largo number of turbulent personages, some of whom were under the influesce of prdent spirits, entered the room, and were the author* of hO much disturbance that the business could not be consummated. Many of these persons being neither reporters nor editors, they forced the passage of a resolution that every indU vidual who said he was entitled to a voice should be admitted to the privilege of a part in the proceeding!. A motion to aojourn was lost?ayes, 14; nays. 13. A bill lor the rent of the room was then paid, in accordance with a resolution passed by the meeting. Here profane language, Insinuations of personal violence, and various other uncalled-for and criminal movements compelled the officers, and a majority of the original ca'.lers of the meeting, to vacate the room, and adjourn to another quarter. 1 hey continued their organization; and their first act was to agree to tbe following protest: ? In consequence of the present* of a disorderly body of persons, sm.e <f wfota wire subordinates of the prib*, an 1 otheri of xiio-n !.ave no coniie* t.on with it, either in a reportori&l or edi torial way, the ulcere of tl.e meeting, and gentlemen helping to comprise tie original stccmblagr. having acc>n<pli?had all they met t-> acc< i:iplish. tiny therefore re'use to reoocnise any pro I toedirgk thai may hnve taken plaeo after tbeir adjournment." A resolution, as below. was then adopted :?

Dr. Ileec lirr, of I Jot ton. The new Congregational ClWfrch in Hammond, [ rear Factory street, was opened for divine service ' yesterday morning. The church has recently been completed, and is | one ol the neatest and most comfortable in the ! city. The walis are of light grey stone, and the architecture plain. The interior of the church piesenta none of that superfluous and gaudy drai pcry whicU characterizes the churches built at the j pit sent day. The pews are large and convenient' constructed of black walnut, of beautiful texture. | The desk, ol the same material, is plain, but beauj tiful; while the galleries are unexcelled for convenience and comfort, being finished after the same i style as the lower part of the house. The organ, which i stands in the end of the gallery, is small, but of the sweetest tone, and the choir is composed of gentltmen | and ladies of great vocal powers. There is every thing to make this a desirable place of worship, and the now small congregation cannot but become one of the largest. There were a goodly number of persons Testerday, and the opening sermon was preached by the Rev. Dr. Beeeher, of Boston. Hi* remarks were wholly of a practical nature, en the condition of mankind generally, In a religious point of view. "When a man setteth about to build a house, be first countsth the cost," fco. With regard to the church in which that congregation were to worship, he was aware there were great obstacles to contend sgainst, bnt it was only necessary to observe a] strict > adherence to the rules laid down in the gospel, and they would tlourish. The city of New York, he said, was exposed to every grade of *ln ; the theatres, and such places, bad a tendency only to demoralire, and it was tne duty nf those who had the imprest of the spirit of Uod, to be watchful, and guard against those things which tended to Impede the cause of Christianity. It was necessary to count the cost, to examine into the truths of the word of (>od, that its blessings might I be sppreoiated, and there was no doubt but, though 1 there were but few now who had succeeded in erect| jr>g the edifice for worship, there would be numbers of those wbo, by a guidance of the truth of divine revelation, would make the churoh to gro?, and become 1 an ornament to the caura which It espoused. The gaming table, he said. wu one of the greatest evils to which this city was subjected, and o?je which was only calculated to impede the progress of the c*'i*e of < hrlct, and it would require all the watchfulness of tfb'ch the mind is possessed, to drive thit source of unhappi^,,?( from the community. Slavery and politics, too, were of the evil* of the country In short, there was everything to deter the cause of holiness; but by a careful adlitrcnce to the truth of the gospel, the darkness would be turned to light, and the blessings of Christianity prevail. He announced that be should continue his discourse in the afternoon, when he prayed the I.ord would come up with them. During the week, the society will b? established, and a board of trustees appointed Th s church has opened under the mo?t favorable auspices, and there can be no doubt but those who have projected and reared it, will see the fruit of their labors, and like bread cset upon the waters be bountifully gathered, in a rich barvtst A faithful worshippers Sporting Intrltlmenfe.

Those who lore | purity of atyle. sweetness of intonation, and bnwiohlog dramatic expression, should aee and hear thisdia- ' tirguiabed cantatrice this evening Besides this great attiaction, the grand ballet of "Ksmeralda ' will be ' produced by the Monplaiair troupt, who have now be come estaDiienea ravorties. ine aramatto company will also appear in two pieces. namely, the farce or "40 and 50," (in which Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert will sustain the principal characters,) and the laughable comedietta of'-Doctor Dllworth," with an excellent cast. Go early to tie I'ark to secure (eats. dow).** Thbatre ?The national drama, so termed, by which is meant that olass of dramas in which incidents fr< in the wars of the revolution form the chief points of the story, has become moat popular, particu J larly at the Bowery, where such dramas are produced j in most magnificent style. The various patriotic speeches, which of course figure largely in such piece*, are always sure to be highly applauded; at the same ! time they (at least at the Bowery) are usually free from the fustian and bombast which so frequently supply the place ot good sterling langun?? In such pleoea. " Putnam" is a rhining example of how interesting there pieces can be made, and to-night a new drama called the'-Swamp Fox''will be produced. It is founded on historical farts, principally colleoted from Si ma's Life of Marion, the celebrated Carolinian General of the revolutionary war He was called the Swamp Fox during the war. from his habits of lying concealed in 1 the fastnesses of the awamps, and his cunning manuou- I res and invlnoible courage when attaoked. The incidents in this piece will be of the most interesting j character Mr. G F. Brown* and his mare, Gaxelle, will both appear in it, and some remarkable equestrian i feats will be performed. All the prominent membera > of the company will take parta? N. B.Clarke, J. M. ' Scott. Hall. Warden, Tllton, Duff, Dunn, Mrs. Jordan, Mins S. Denin, kc ?and every advantage in the way of , splendid and aocurate scenery will be given it. Dancing , by Signora Ciocea and 8iarnor Neri, and a new local i drama, called the " F.aat River Craftsman," will form j the rest of the bill. This last drama Is sa'd to be a moat . interesting one, and, altogether, the bill for this even- ! ing, at the Bowery, will be sure to attract a moat crowded house. j baoadwat Theatre.?This evening, the entertainments commence with tbe burletta of " Our Mary j Ann," in which Mrs. Abbott, Miss H. Cline, Mrs Isher- | wood. Meaors. Hadaway, Shaw, and Andrews, will suatain the principal characters. The next pieae will be 1 the comic opera of " The Daughter of the llegiment," j music by Donixettl, in which the Seguin troupe will | appear. This will be followed by a Put tfranolilaint, , ! by Mile. Celeste and Mons. Wiethoff, and tne whole | will conclude with the farce of theDumb Belle." I ine pare or vivian. oj wir. i.eurr; usmirxe. by k. Shaw, in which be will sing the song of "Paddy O'Raf' ferty." Tbis In a very attractive bill, aod at donbt will I draw a large aseemb'age this evening. Again we would i remind tbe numerous friend* of Colonel Mann that hie I complimentary benefit will oome off on Thursday evening next. Mr. Mann deserve* well from the theatrical community of tbis city, and we venture to say that a vast assemblage of his admirers will prove, by their presence on Thursday evening next, how much they [ appreciate his efforts in raising such a noble structure in our city, as the llroadway Theatre. National Theatre.?To-night tbe very favorit? operatic drama of "Ksmeralda" will be produced. This piece was played some two or three weeks ago at i the National, for many successive nights, with the ! greatest applause; it is a most elegant and interesting ! adaptation from Victor Hugo's celebrated novel, and the admirable manner in which it is got up by Chan1 frau has made it very popular. Miss Mestayer's perI formance of tbe Ksmeralda. is truly admirable, and Stark's Claude Frollo is a most remarkable piece of aoting. Nor must we forget Mrs. Mcl.ean's Oudule, Jones's Quasimodo. Palmer's Phoebus, and Herbert's Orlrcoire. It is in fact, admirably put on the stage in exery respect The popular local piece of a "Glance | at New York,'' will next be played. Tbis is the great 1 1 orlgcal of the Mose style of drama, and Mose himself ' appears to much advantage in it It will be played with | all tbe original scenes, and Mose, Syksey, Lis* and all \ tbe various ferms which that wonderful animal, tbe j elephant, is apt to a^ume in New York, will be faithfully represented. Strangers to the ways of (,city folks" { ' will do well to invest the price of a tioket to the Nat'onal to see this piece; it may save them many a dollar aftir. besides affording them great am?!|;In;at lit | tbe same time.

With such a bill, it require! no prophet to assert tbat tbe National will be crowded thisevenii>g. I Birio.n'? Thcatrf.?'-Dombey St Son." the most successful adaptatior which has been produced for a , I long time in this city, will be again played this even| inn at Burton's theatre. It is played in order to afford . an opportunity to see it to a large number of persons ! who were unable to gain admission on the last repre, sedation of it. as the house was so much crowded. 1 lichens' novel, though famous enough in this country when it first appeared, has acquired a reputation more j widespread than ever, since this adsptntion of it. and , as it has taken so well, we should think that some of i bis other works would likewise affor.l a good field for adaptator*. "New York in Siloes''will also be played. 1 i The local drama is all tbe rage now-a-days in New ' \ ork, and wWn well done, it will always be a favorite ' j species of drama. We perceive tbat a new burlesque, 1 { entitled''Dan Keyrer de Bassoon.''is announced for 1 | to-morrow evening. We presume that It la a burlesque I on "Don Cmsar de Damn " The music Is by Mr. | Loder. and tbe pieoe itself by Mr. Brougham. ' Don r.-nsar"' might be admirably burlesqued, and we have no donbt that Mr. Brougham has done his part with bis usual wit and skill. Nibi o'i Tiifatrk ?This being the last night of the engagement of Mr. Matrcady, no doubt the Broadway omnibus?* will be crowded from half-past 0 until halfpast 7 o'clock, as usual, with the many admirers of this distinguished tragedian He appears in one of his greatest cbarsoter*. that of Macbeth Mrs Mallnda Jones will sustain the part of Lady Macbeth, that of Maoduff by Mr Ryder, and Banquo by Mr Clarke. The other characters will be filled by an excellent stock company The entertainment will close with the farie of "A Loan of a Lover"?th* character of Peter | Sprk by T 1'laciJe. and Krnestine by Miss Kate Horn. Tbe management of this theatre since it came Into the hands of Mr. Wm Niblo. has been conducted with HUch theatrical skill, seeking as much by selection of ! tbe best talent to please his patron* as to make money by the transaction that his separation from the theatre will be much regretted by all those who have lookr I upon bis name as the conductor of stage affairs, a.- a paw port to a delightful evening's pleasure. Broai.wav Circus ?'This establishment, under the management of Tryon fc Thomson, is doing an excellent business Some of the greatest equestrian talent in this country are now performing there, and the best order and regularity prevail throughout the entire entertainment. To night, tbe celebrated John CiOHSin will appear, as also tbe great equestrian. Hernander. aa.l the whole troupe of Welsh and Delavan. This. Indeed, will b? an attraction seldom presented for tbe people's amusement and, no doubt, will draw a large assemblage to the Broadway Circus this evening. On Thursday next the extensive zoological collection of Messrs. Raymond and Waring will enter the city, and proceed through the principal streets, preceded by tbe colossal chariot They will be joined by Messrs. Tryon and Thompson's elrcus team, which will make one of the most magnificent trains that ever the city witnesred They will be conducted to the slto of j Nlblo's old garden, where a spacious pavilion will be erected. wh< re the animals will be exhibited. This affair will be woitli a sight, and Messrs Thompson , and Tryon will ns doubt greatly add to the beauty of : the display. There will be an bundre i horses in the i procession Christy's Miwstrh.s have undoubtedly found the , philosopher's stone, as I hey most be making money I at rsilrrad speed Their concert room is crow Jed every ! night, and gTeat islthe applause which they obtain from I their audiences But then they take every piins to ' make their entertainment* wotthy of this patronage; I and. as the various member* of the froupt are all most I admirable musicians and singers, they have the requi| site abilities to go through their oncert* In tirst rate style, so as to please tbe most fastidious ear, not to speak of the amusing nature of their dance*, jokes, he They will sing e\ery evening thla week.

Matrimonial Jtdvenlure of a Sailor.?The PoUoe 'ourt of this city appears to be the general resort fir all grades of society, i. r. ft oca any trouble that might iriee in their family, or any neighborly quarrel, suoh is throwing alop water on eioh others stoop, euttiaga slothes line, or calling each other names, wnloh are too hooking to mention. Such complaints are almost hourly made during the day. Yesterday, however, a sase oame Up, of quite a different nature The magistrate had juat returned from dinner, and, seated on tha bench with all the dignity of a supreme court judge, picking his teeth with a ton gout, apparently feeling irell p.eased with himself, and not caring much for the petit lawyers and poor devils who bang around the tombs for a living His attention was suddenly drawn to quite a pretty rosy-cheeked Irish girl of about eighteen summers, who made her appearance at the loutherly door of the court room, but feeling considerably confused when she caught the eye ef the learned judge, stepped back, and was just making her retreat from the oflloe, when a signal was made to nn? nt the officers, who immediately requested the young woman to walk up to the bar of justloa. The chrki, like many of the judges, having somewhat ot k taste for female beauty, drop^d their pent and hovered around the justice, with sparkling eye* and attentive ears. This interesting creature was not handsome, but, yet, very good looking. She was ot short stature, plump and healthy, rosy cheeks, dark brown hair, with a pair of very expressive eyes, rather Large, but not too much so to spoil her looks; and when spoken tv, they would sparkle up, clearly expressing her sentiments before she uttered them. Her note was one of those short noses, rather elevattd at the end, but. still, it was not a snub bow nor % oockel up nose. hut one of those pretty interesting noses, which we only see once in a while, that looks ounnlnr, and the more you It ok at it, the more interest you see, end the more you like It. The arrangements under this little noee were equally attractive. a< she had a handsome set of teeth and a sweet pair of lips, th?t were neither too large ner too thin, bnt something he* tween the two, makia* her tout ensemble one of general interest and admiration. The officers of the oourt Hooked around her in the aniioiu exptctation of being oalled to do the bosinees, whatbtmt the 6kM ?lght be. vt 5vni,r, U^KT-vne MpAolal direction of the magistrate, asthej* officers are ever willing to do business for a pretty woman in prefTT? pnceto the homely ones. This, we presume, Is all right, us policemen, although under the Mayor's direction, till retain their sympathy for good-lookinz woman. Now to the point. The magistrate asked her what complaint she had to make' "Are yon the Judge," asked the young woman. "Yes," said the magistrate. The poor girl then increased the color on her cheeks to almost a crimson, and said, "Can I see yon privately and have a little criminal conversation with youv< At this request, the clerks looked at eaoh other; one twisted his mouth; the other winked his eye and nudged the next one to him in the ribs with his elbnw, as much as to say, "woulin't you like a ohance The magistrate opened his eyei, removed the old quid from his moutb And replaced a new one; then he lookrd at the girl then at his book, and. lastly, at the clerks, whom he founitAtttarlng with a smile on their countenance. After aw*reconds consideration, he concluded not to grant the request, although, to bei-ure the temptation was great, end morn than ncany would have been able to withstand: yet the magistrate refused the request, as it might have been said by ill disposed persons that favors were *hown to the goo<l looking, while the bad looking were neglected. Th ? magistrate said Oo on. young woman; what you have to say you can relate before me here What is your name' The young woman'* race flushed up, and she said: - My name is Catharine DonnaUy, and I want to know what I am to do. I was Barried night before last, to a sailor by the name of J as.

I didn't want to hare bim. but be said he would make me a good husband, and take care of me. so. do you see, I was persuaded by Mrs Bedford to have him. The night before last, wbru we were married, he brought in a man, who h? 'aid was John Smith, from Mulberry street, and slo keeps a liouor store. This man went with nstoRev Mr Chare's and when we got there he was to pay Mr. Chase $6 for marrying us; but instead of tiring bim the money, he * anted to give him an order or $5 to some plaoe in Mercer ntreet, which I felt oerain was only a trick to oheat him. I then said that :hat was wrong, and that Mr Chase was an old ma to mil should not be fooled in that way, I was then ! m'ng away, and got as far as the d or, when he iaa iftvr me and told me I was foolish, and made me come >ack an.l get married 1 believe be gare Mr. Chase k2, and promised to give him the ether $3 the neit lay.
