Thr Orcat Contest of 1848. Who is to be next President ? Will General Cass be elected 1 Will General Taylorbe successful 1 Who will carry. Pennsylvania and Ohio ! What is the state of the question"! IIow are the parties organized 1 These questions appear to be the principal topics of enquiry and discussion at all our public places, crowded hotels, street corners, and cross roads, throughout the country. In twelve days the contest will be decided. F.om this hour, up to the 7th of November, the politicians, and vast masses of the people, will scarcely talk or think of anything else. Both the great parties are wanning up on the subject, and all the principles and passions, which can guide or animate the people, will be appealed to by the orators and journalist?, until the contest is determined. It 18 ? content substantially between Gen Cass and Gen. Taylor. The free soil movement, under Mr. Van Buren, performs simply the office of a vibrating element, tending in some small degree to aid the one or the other, according to the geographi" cal point it operates in. The free soil movemen1 helps Gen. Taylor in New York, and in some parts of New England, and also in Pennsylvania, on this side of the Allegheny mountains ; but in Ohio, and elsewhere in the West, and also in Massachusetts, the free soil question probably gives some aid to General Cass. It is evident, from the position of this matter, and the agitation of the Wilmot proviso by Mr. Van Buren that it is operating in different parts of the Northern States to neutralize itself; and that, in fact, the contest between General Taylor and General Cass will be more determined by the absolute friends ol both, than by the relative diversion of a third movement. In other respects the contest waxes warm between the great parties. The enthusiasm at first manifested, under the auspices of John Van Buren, for the free soil movement, gradually subsides, and divides itself between the two leading parties which support General Cass, on omc side, and General Taylor, on the other. We are persuaced that though the free soil party, as a paiiy, nas arriveu ai lis nignesi point oi development, and in this election must stand still or even diminish?yet, that the free soil principle, or the restriction upon the extension of slavery, has prevailed to an extraordinary extent in both the old parties in the tree States. In fact, the principle is already successful, while the party is on the way to its tomb. General Ta>lor was first placed before the people of this country as a candidate for the Presidency, through the columns of the Nnc York Herald, in May, 1846, far in advance of all other journals, or of any nomination or suggestion of his name, from any other quarter. That nomination took place on the day after the receipt of the news from the Rio Grande, "giving the general resu'ts of the battles successfully achieved by his bravery and skill. The conductor of this journal, some years ago, formed a personal acquaintance with General Taylor, and resided under the same roof wth him for several weeks, ? in the vicinity of Niagara Falls. The General had just returned from the Florida war, and was reposing himself in that delicious neighborhood, after having successfully finished the campaign in 'he everglades, against the Seminole Indians. In a daily intercourse ot some continuance the writer of these lines lormed the highest opinion of the imparity, intelligence, dignity, modesty, and powerful mind, possessed liy Gen. Taylor. He found In him those lineaments of character which are attributed to General Washington. On the first receipt of the news from the Kio (Jrande, his recollections of this intercourse, and the impressions produced on his mind, prompted him at once to declare that here was a man who would command, probably to an extent equal if not superior to nl other living heroes, or statesmen, the sympathy and support of the American people. Acting on such mpulses and recollections, and his personal knowledge of General Taylor's character, \re put his name before the people; and* in such a brief space of time, in only abou two years and six mo nths, he is now in his presen1 position, one of the stro ngest candidates that ever lias been placed in this position, since the age of Washington up to the present day. Genera! Cass lias been eight years a candidate, General HarriBon wan lor seven yearn a candidate before he was elected General Jackson,also, was seven years in the field before he was elected. We do not take, in this reckoning, the nomination of Mr. Polk, which was a surprise in ev*ry point of view on the paity which put linn forward, and on the people who elected him. We are now within a few days of the great content, and according 10 all appearances, General Taylor has, without doubt, the vantage ground Yet, it cannot be denied, that some ol the technical results of the recent (State elections, and calculations which are based on them, m >y give t-ncouiagenient to llie friends of General C*S8 to lioiw for Ins success, and for the defeat of (Ieneral Taj lor. The greatest strength of General Taylor, however, consists, not in the apparent strength of the whig patty, which has taken him up at a late hoar, but in the popularity of his character, and the elements of strength which the enthusiasm attached to his name brings into the field,joined with the uaislance and aid of the independent niwee* it) the diflerent parts of the country. The contett will be fearful. The democrat* are moving heaven ?nd enrh, and a arty such an it is, organized and drilled for a series of years, alway* achievir- \iotones, requires a prodigious force of enthu. n-m and popularity to overcome it. The whig party, on the contrary, is wretchedly organized, and miserably conducted. We see its oraton and journalists hlreariy reviving the antiquated issues upon which they have been regnlarly defeated (or the last twenty-five years. Mr I Webster comes forth with a 1 his tar if notions and has the hardihood to aay that the coun try is going to ruin, in the face of more pros perity than ever dawned before on any people 01 nation. The tariff, as well as the sub-treasury question, are harcly worth the breath that is wast ed npon them. Most accurat 'lv has Mr. 1) idley Selden stated that the success of either party would create very little change in the revenue and financial*)stem cf the country for many years to come. A national debt always requires a heavy tevenue, and hence, a financial system, embracing a permanent i*6ue ol treasu y notes to create a national currency, must be the principal agent of the government in that particular department ol the public affairs. Yet, in spite of all the efforts and anticipations o! the whig leaders and journals, to revive the antiquated and unpopular issues, and assume for General Taylor that narrow ground and selfish policy which has shipwrecked the whig party for the last quarter of a century ; yet, in spite of all this we believe that the name of the hero of Buens Vista carries a tower of strength along with it and has such a torrent of enthusiasm carrying 1 along m its career, that it will overcome all mere technical calculations, and bring him out far ii advance of every State or other local ticket whicl has been elected during the last two months. Th< seventh of November will determine this impor tant result. Fire Insi ransk Companies.?Conscientiousnesi and fair dealing are qualities which lie at the foundation of all individual, collective, and na tional prosperity. No individual, no body of men and no nation that set them at defiance, aad ac upon a different course of policy, but will find ii the long run that any temporary advantage whicl they may gain is more than counterbalanced bj the greater losses which inevitably result. Tract the history of any individual, of any society or ol any nation, who have turned their backs upon the common principles of lustire. and ihp invoati gation will show that, however slow, however de lerred, however puzzling to human comprehensioi may be the delay, the day of retribution comes a last?the more severe the longer the blow hat been in suspense. We have been led into this train of reflectioi from considering the frequency with which public societies have lately appeared in our courts of law litigating with individuals a matter where, in the mindB of the respectable portion of the commu' nity, the equity of the case was clearly against them, We have no intention to go into the merits of the case of Niblo t<t. the North American Insurance Company, which was lately tried in the Superioi Court, where damages, amounting to $4,615, were given to the plaintiff. This, however, is a case in point, and furnishes an illustration, and toe in an aggravated form, of the hardships of which we complain. It is high time, therefore, that public attention was directed to these bodies, some of whom are wholly destitute of integrity and sound principle. Many of them are possessed of such large capital as completely to overwhelm any poor man whe dares to find fault, or complain of any act of injustice or oppression they may choose to commi against him; and the knowledge of this, togethei with the unscrupulous lengths to which some o them will go in entangling their victims in the meshes of the law, make the latter frequentlj prefer "to endure the ills they have, than fly tc others they know not of." This is really shameful, and calls for the indignant reprobation ol every respectable man in the community. These public societies, who, from the immense resournps at thpir Hiannaal they can set all law, human and divide, at deli, ance, must be taught that there is such a power in the community as public opinion, a collision with which may neither be so safe nor so profitable aB with the antagonists they have hitherto been in the habit of contending with. Let them take & lesbon, therefore, in time, and not wait, till a lamentable experience has convinced them, also, that " honeBty is the best policy," and as applicable to the millionaire as to the mendicant. City Politics. Evt ry ward in th? city nightly presents a seene ol cc<nluf>if>d and disorder, in it* political circle. The various parties are fighting among themselves, and in some cases it seems impossible for a sufficiency of delegates to unite upon any man so that a nomination may he made. Free Soil Nomination*.?Jtmtmbly ?The free soil convention of the 16th ward have nominated Hiram W. Dixon, Esq . as their choice to represent that ward in the Assembly.

Wallbridge stood highest, having received 12 votes out Of the 35 which compose the convention Fourth Conorhsmonal District.?The whig electors of the wardslconiposing the 4th Congressional District, were invited to assemble last nightin the open air. at the junction of East Broadway and Grand sts., to receive the report of the Congressional Convention. A platform was erected for the ooraslon, a band of music was also provided, with several other appliances of a grand rally ; and a c nsiderable assemblage was gathered together *o hear and see what would be said and done ; but much to the general disappointment, there were no orators " with thoughts that breathe and words tbnt burn.'' to address the assembly. Accordingly. after the lapse or half an hour, which was pent in hearing Mr Hirain Ketchum and a Mr. Reid. of the 7th ward talking about lluena Vista. Monterey. Mexico. universal liberty, the pursuit of human happines equality and fraternity, old ' Whitey." He . fcc., the audience could stand it no longer, and loud cries were given for a change of performances. " < Jreeley" was railed for. but was not forthcoming. Mr. Fraier then hung a song, after which the meeting adjourned and walked in procession, headed by the band. t? the house of Mr Underbill, their candidate, where they gave full vent to their feelings in his favor. Fifth Com sessional District.?The fifth district of this Stale, comprising three wards of this city, now represented In Congress by the Hon Krederick A Tallmtdge. is in a state of glorious confusion with regard to n> mination* for his successor. The whlgs have been long trying 10 mane a nomination in their convention but the friend* of Mr John W Lntson refuse all compromise on any olher name; and now It will ba M in that Roderick N Morri'on.

The democratic cnnyention of the district, having ncmica'td Mike Waloh, the inioorlty have brought forward the Lame of Duvid C. Broderiek, the defeated candidate in the same district at the election two years since. The free soil men have, with great unanimity, brought forward, as theirjcandidate, Mark Spencer.Ksq., a merchant, over rlxty years of age, well known to the older portions of the citizens of the district. Ha will, probably, poll a strong Tote. Taking it for granted that Mr. I.atson will run at all hs7.Htds. and prexuming that the whig* opposed to him will agree on Mr. Morrison, the candidates will stand as tollowi ?

InHrpmdrnt Candidate.?Oliver llolden. jr., of the Ninth ward, in the filth district, advocates free soil, tree labor, cheap postage, and a national mint in the city Of New York, and is the peopi*-* candidate for member of Congress irreHpective of party. The whig convention met last night, at the Broadway Hour*, and after some doxen balloting*, adjourned for the fifth time, without making a nomination There | were several new nan en adde I to the list, among which ! wnstbat (f (Jeorge Brigga.

Mr. Latson received hut three 1 votes, and Mr. Dodge the same number From the I present aspect of affairs, there is every probability that this convention will not succeed at ail In making a nomination. lionki e CofrvrwTiown.?Coaoa*??ioi?*i.?The regular hunktr convention of the Fifth dtotriet met last night, at No. l?2>i Varlok street, to make ft report of the nonination of Darid Broderiok, thai* candidate Mr. B. declined to acoept, sad Daniel E.

Mr. William Wedge having been nominated by another committe, claimed the nomination, on the ground that that of Mr. Wakeman wan Informal. Aft*r a great deal of nolae for nothing. Mr. Wedgewood r tgreed to withdraw for a third man, if an unobjeotioo r able one could be found. The meeting then dropped the name of Mr. Wakeman. and Elias G. Drake, Esq., waa nominated bj acclamation. The Fnncial Obaoqnlei of (he Lata Hon* Dixon H. Lewis, of Alabama. Tbe last tribute of respect waa yesterday paid to the remains of thli distinguished guest of the city. Kt an early hour the flags of the city, and of the public buildings, were hoisted at balf mast, and a general gloom pervaded. As the sun approached the meridian, thousands of persons crowded the Guvernor's room, where the remains laid, and all seemed to respect the memory of [ tbe great man. among whom was Major General Winfield Scott. In all the social relations of life Mr. Lewis was highly esteemed, as a devoted husband, a fond and affectionate father, and a firm and true friend. In tbe political oonoerns of life he was honest and faithful in tbe performance of his duty, and oom> manded tbe respect and esteem of all who knew him. 1 He had long served in the councils of the nation, and in every measure in which the welfare or Interest of t his country was involved, fought nobly in her cause. In this city he had many warm and ardent friends, and his demise fell like a blast upon them He had before visited the city, and each succeeding interview bound more firmly the bond of fellowship whioh encircled him. His political friends looked upon him as one of the brightest stars among their leaders, while his opponents admired and respected him for the biid and independent stand which he took on all impor3 tant national <|Ut-htions. knowing that he acted from , convictions of right He bad for years bees suhjeot to sudden attacks, such as that which terminated his mortal career; but from the fact of his having always before fpeedily recovered, little apprehension was bad ' by his family that he would breathe out bis lif? so 1 suddenly. He had been ill for several days, which 1 of course created anxiety; but be soon began to show symptoms of recovery, and the gloom was dispelled, 1 until a relapse told tbe fearful tale that recovery r was beyond hop*. Net like a stranger in a strange land did hn di?: fnr h? waft fmrrminrinri hvf?ian,ia ' I and i>he who had devoted to him her early lore, wan bj f i bis side to smooth bin pillow and bathe bin burning > i brow. The tudden blow fell upon her heart as the ' i early front upon the tender plant, and his children, some uf whom he hnd watched in pride from infancy to manhood, and who looked upon him as the greatest blessing heaven had granted to them, writhe in 1 agony of heart underth" withering blast. Among his t la?ge circle of friend* throughout the country, and particularly in the State of Alabama, whose people 3 trusted in his wisdom. the news of hip d.<ath will be wafted in sorrow, that the good and great man is thus matched from them. But the laws of heaven are ' imumtable. and the God whose wisdom in supreme, has ; commanded it, and that command in obeyed. Yesterday. as bin friends stood beside the lifeless 1 corse of him they loved in life, the tear of sorrow woul l : fall from the eye. which would no more look upon the form of the long tried and faithful friend At twelve o'clock, the Rev. Dr. Tyag and Her Mr. Grinwold entered the governor's room, accompanied by the . Committee of Arrangemeuts; soon at tor whioh the funeral ceremonies were performed I The Rev. Dr Tyng read the funeral oeremony; after f whioh, in language most eloquent, he npoke of the solemnity of the occasion : the serious consideration - which that occasion should command, and the power > of God in the fulfilment of bin righteous lawn. It was the duty of the minister on such an oecanion to speak ' for God,that men might be brought to aproperreflection 1 that He alone is the Being worthy of obediense.? Every thing that could be. h d been done for the distinguished stranger, but be was as the poor ' man in tbe arms of death. The highest position on earth might be attained; but death brought all to a common level, and he who had stood high in the nation, by tbe laws of Jehovah, would enter upon eter[ nity tbe same as be who grovelled bin way through the mud of the gutter. Obedlenan to God was necessary 1 to eninre a blessed immortality beyond the sotrows of this world, and be hoped those present would awake to reflection, and render obedience to God, who holdeth their lives in bis hands. > The Rev Mr Griswald then offered an appropriate , prayer, full of the humble breathings of supplication, ' for tbe love and blessings of heaven to rest upon those ? i afllicted by this dispensation ofl'rovidenco Tbe oeremonies concluded, the remains were re' moved to the hearse. and tne line of procession formed i in tbe following order:?

We have scarcely space to notice theebarming acting of Miss Rose Telbia in the fare*. It was, however, fully appreciated by the audience. To night, MonH. Monplaisir takes a benefit, and he presents anusual attractions The troupe appear in the ballets of " Aurora" and " Love, Despair and Champagne," and Mons and Madame Monplaisir will danoe " La Zingarilta " Madame Bishop will perform ths scena entitled "Recollections of Linda," and will sing the popular negro melody, Mary Blane, and the chanton militairt from " La Fiile du Regiment." The farces of " Forty and Fifty " and " Box and Cox-' will also be presented. Bowkkt Tiieatrk.?The "Swamp Fox" and the ' East River Craftsman" have been the attractions of the week at this house. Night after night they hay* drawn full audiences, and the applause consequent on the extraordinary feats performed by Mr. Browne, and his Arab steed Gazelle hat been immense. The story of the "Swamp Fox" is an interesting one. It is founded on the events in the revolutionary war in South Carolina; and the peculiarities of the brave General Marion, whose fame as a most succesafnl partisan General, and as one of the most high-minded patriots the country ever produced, will be famous as Ung as the history of the United States exists The accuracy of the views of Fort Moultrie and other localities in South Carolina; the soene representing the famous meal of Marion in the swamp, which is so well | known from the admirable engraving of the incident; | and the general care which lias been taken to get up i the piece perfectly?all tend to give the greatest satis- 1 faction to those who witness it. The elegant dancing of Signora Cioccaand Signor Neri is nightly received ; with much applause. They are most admirable artists, end have become especial favorites at the Bowery, i The " East River CrafUman." a most investing drama commenoed the evening's entertainment. This pieoe, likewise, has beon well put on the stage, and is i nightly received with every mark of satisfaction, i Jordan, as the New York sneak; Wioans as the comic ! barber; Tilton, J. H. Hall, &0.?2II are much applauded. > To-night the same bill will be repeated. Broadway Theatric.?At this comfortable house waa presented last evening, Geo Coleman's Comedy of the ' Poor Gentleman," in which Mr. Blake appeared aa Sir Robert Bramble; Mr. Fredericks, as Lieutenant 1 Worthington; Mr Lester, as Frederick Bramble; Mr. Hadaway, at Dr. Ollapod ; T. Plaoide, as Stejihen Har. | row by; with Miss F. Wallaek, as Emily Worthington; ' Miss Hildreth. as Miss Lueretia M'Tab; and a good I cast for the remaining characters. The comedy was enacted throughout in a manner which reflected great credit upon all engaged in it. Mr. B.ake was particularly happy in his personation of the character allotted to him ; his humor waa of that easy, quiet, unoitentatious kind, which makes the audience forget that it is a stage performance they are witnessing. It is as if all were real and substantia'* In fact, the stage business?the dressingol the characters?the perfection of all in their Darts?stainDed the whole ? wall -??? <t?.i jiIut ; the natural result of which is to inake one, for the time, willingly, though it be. entertain the pleassing illusion that the scenes before him are those of real l>fe- The bill for the evening was made up, besides the comedy, of a" Put de i)tuxby Miss Celeste and Wietboff,an overture ty the orchestra and, in conclusion the farce of " Born to Good Luok"?the part of Paudeen O'Rafferty by Mr B Williams, with the favorite *ong of the " Low Backed Car." and, in company with Miss Celeste, an Irish jig. We pea that the proprietor of tbe Broadway has engaged Mr. Murdoch, who will appear on Monday evening The reputation of tbe Broadway is established on a ?ood basis. and the managers are certainly worthy of good houses. National Theatric?The popular drama of " Jack Sbeppard" was performed last evening as the first piece. Miss Mestayer (whose benefit it was) acted the part of the famous burglar, and a most natty; handsome Jack Sbeppard she made. Her fine figure waa . shown to much advantage by the ?tyle of dress she wore, and we must say we have never seen a better representation ot the character. Cbanfrau, as Blueskin, was very funny; his acting in tbe soene of the supper at old Kneebone's house was very comic, and elicited immense applause. Mr. Stark, as Jonathan Wild, was excellent; and Palmer, Herbert, Taylor, Dares and the rest of the performers, all acted their parts well. '-Jaok Sbeppard," is a most interesting piece, and will always be popular. " A (Jlance at New \ ork," and the ' Pretty (Jiris of Stilberg," were the otner pieces; both of them went off well. Little Miss Carline danced one or two dances during the evening. She is a very promising rlanttuse. and is derervedly a great favorite at the National. Her talents are suoh as will some day make her quite an eminent artiste The ' Ulance at New York" will be acted thisevening for the la>t time; it cannot be played again, in consequence of ciroumstances beyond control. ''Jaok Sbeppard" and the ' Pretty Girls of Stilberg," will likewise be repeated. We were glad to see the house so well filled last evening. To-night there will, no doubt, be another large audience. Burton's Theatre, Chamicrs Street.?Last night waa the benefit of that meritorious actor, Mr. Lynns; and a crowded house evidenced the appreciation in which he is held by the public. It waa an adventurous effort to appear as Falstaff; but contrary to anticipations, he made, we think, a decided hit. We thought j he played the part quite as well as we have ever seen ft played on any stage in New York. The other characters were quite reepectalby done, though to all who recollect the lute Mr. Fisher, in the part pf Fsancis. an opportunity wasafferded last night for an uofavorabls comparison. But there are few men gifted trlth the blgh and extraordinary comic powers whioh Fisher possessed. We say this in disparagement of no living otor ; a man may fail in on? part, while he shines in another. Witness Burton's L)r. Ollapod night before last, and Chippendale's Bramble, where the latter fell Tar short of Burton's Bramble, at the Astor Theatre ; ?rd Burton himself, as Or. Ollapod, seemed to us far ibort of the Oliapod at the name place. So much for candor'* rake and independence. The other entertainments were well received. Mr. Leach pang what was called a popular ballad, whleb, however, was neither popular nor greatly pleasing, but rather too funereal lor the occasion This evening, it is said, the last opportunity is afforded to the public of seeing "NrwJVork n Slices," when those who have not yet seen this usemblage of views of New York, and the complimentary character of the Reporter, about which so much gas'been raid, will have an opportunity of witnessing t for the last time. Broadway Ciarus.?This delightful place was filled aft nlf ht again, to witness the extraordinary beauty ind fsgaclty of the horse, together with the wonderul skill of the riders, who appear to be mora daring n their feats of horsemanship every night of their jerformance, The cavalcade, entitled the "Courtiers )f Louis XIV.," is magnificent The riding of Msster nernandes is truly aetouUhing. and justly entitles urn lo be cal!*d the premier horseman of the New Wcrld. He received tremendous applause. The augbable sayings and doings and funny, tricks of Lii<?<S4n. the favorite cloen, kept the audience in a merry humor all the time. Mr Darius, in his four ;haracters, was very good, and Mr. Devore, on the lack rope, was, Indeed, wonderful ; and last, though not least, was the knowing little creatures called Romeo tnd Juliet, two of the prettiest little ponies that can possibly be imagined; they can do anything but 'peak, and tbat they get the clown to do for them In fact, the whole of the performance is well worth seeing. D<od order prevails thronghout, and the company Is highly respectable. Ta hksr?aclk ? Dkiikb Ixki n*iMrs's COPTCFRT.? This concert, which the musical people had so long tipected, was given last night, before a very good audience, who were gratified with ane of the greatest Ireata of the season, by the excellent performances of Lha talented young artist.

The selection a la Mtmuirr d'Jtrtot, composed by the 'irnrficiare, is marked with a peculiar seal The ?riHatiit which begins It. contains a very sweet melody, a-hi eh is the true accent of melancholy,a lament of a friend's sorrowful hesrt, and its ends, borrowed from ' Donisettl's ' I.ucla,'' was executed with great feeling. We ehalJ slide upon the " Mousquetalras de la Reine/' In order to keep our eulogy for the " Caprice" of Uaut?an "Ma Criine," which, combining originality, beauty and power, is. In our opinion, a bright gem, a fine | llemond. The motif o( Auher's " Dumb OW of Poriol" Introduced is It. gives a great finish to tba pleoe >f the great oomposer, and the above named plena* ittiscted unbounded applause and nnmerou* snouts m the estremelv talented performer.

She 1? now a very olever iloger. who will ever | please the publlo A?for MIm Valesoa KIIeti,who had been" trumpeted" aaan excellenteantatrioe. we most confess that we have been vary much disappointed on her account.

On amount of Signor Novelli'a sickness, Signor Rossi Corn! appeared alone, and sang the aria from " Lucreila Borgia " Piena la mia Vendelta, in a very deserving manner Mr. Tiimn and M.

Campbell's Minitrels.?At the aolloltation of their triends in Williamsburg, these favorite minstrels will this evening give a concert at the grand saloon, Williamsburg Garden. Our neighbors will have quite a treat in hearing the Campbell band. They are patronised by tbe elite of our oltixena, and their beautiful singing, fine dancing, funny joke*, &c., always are applauded most highly They are a really talented aet of singers, and the great suoces* they meet with, so far from making them carelesa, only stimulatea them to further exertions to sustain their high reputation. Germakia Musical Society.?We think it ourduty to announce to our readers that this admirable band of performers, who have been for the laat month gaining fame and money in our oity, will give, thia evening, their last concert at the Tabernacle. The programme for the oroaaion is very rich, and will certainly attract a good heuse at the appointed place. Let as say. before terminating this article, that we feel much indebted to these performers for the taste of classical musical composition which they have Introduced in our oity, and which, we hope, they will spread, whilst travelling through the United State*. The Tabernacle will be crowded to-night. Mexico Illvsi rated, is tbe title of a most elegant panorama of the Mexiean war. which la being exhibited nlphtly at Stoppanl Hall, in Broadway.

The exhibition in made more pleasing by tbe explanatory leoture, which is delivered at intervals, during tbe passing of the pioture, by Mr. Cewell. To day it will be exhibited twice, viz : at 3 and 7>?, T. M. Mr. Uatton was to have given a concert last evening, in Boston A sister of Wallace, the pianist and composer, performed fat Covent Garden in hi* opera of " Maritana."

Her voice is of extenrive range, but her execution is uncertain ; and, as an aotre.<<*, shu is said to have very little pretension*. Vl>l? <n Wnrt Hamilton?Tli. f tlic California Regiment. There la, perhaps, do fortress in the country more beautifully situated.than Fort Hamilton. Its position 'a high and commanding, presenting a fine view of the surrounding country, yet, strange to say, it is almost totally disqualified for the accommodation of more than one or two hundred men. Being the principal port of defence to the great com. mercial metropolis of the Union, the necessity Is at once apparent that great Improvements are required. In its present condition, the men are constantly ex" posed to those diseases w* Ich arise from damp and impure air. The apartments now. are entirely subterranean, and the oonsequenee is, tt' at many of the men are sick, and present an unhealthy and emaoiated appearance. With a view to strength, all the apartments are covered with about six feet of earth, and the only ventilation is a small loop-hole, which is totally deficient for the purposes of health. Besides which, the dampness from above and below, keep them always in such a condition that fire is necessary to prevent a continual dripping. There is now quartered at thia fort, a regiment which will, in a few days embark for California. The follow1 ng is the Hat of officers:? Lieut. Col. and Brevet Brigadier Gen. Kii.ky, Commanding.

In this regiment there are neatly one thousand men, for not one of whom ia the least cotrfort provided by the government, and surely they should have some of the oomforts of life in consideration of the ser*ioes rendered to the country In the Florida war. thia regiment distlnguiahed Itself threugh a campaign of nearly seven years, where they were exposed to all the hardships of the soldiers life, and in the late Mexican war. they fought side by side with the brave volunteers, from Vera Crnz to the city of Mexioo. After all the bard battles which they fcught. how base it appears on the part of the government to usher them into under-ground apartments, until that power ah all pleare to send them on another expedition. If they are chosen above all other* as bent adapted to defend the rights and honor of the country. It Is but right they should be properly and oomfortably eared for during their short recess from arduous duty ? There are now, besides those in the damp caverns of the fort, nearly one hundred of wbona are sick, about four hundred men, whose only plaee of repose is a stable, a place intended for, and only Ot for horses. The officers of the regiment are obliged, from their own pay, to procure lodgings at the hotels adjacent, rather than be exposed to the horrible effects of under ground apartments. This the men are unable to do. and are consequently obliged to take such as they can get. They are treated only as horses, and denied the right to lite as Clod has ordained them For the past twenty years petition after petition have gone up to Congress, asking for the necessary improvements, all of wnioh have scared the same fate, totally disregarded. Yet, the government has been most lavish in its expenditures for putting up useless walls and pretty pavements, neither of which could possibly tend to alleviate the mass of human suffering which was crowded within its walls. Such flagrant acts of injustice on the part of the government cannot be censured in terms stronger than it deserves But it is a disgrace which has always marked the rulers of the nation, and unless those who are possessed of justice and humanity take the matter in hand, there seems btft little hope for a remedy of the existing evils. If the comfort of the soldiar is not considered, and a due regard had to his health. > ow is it possible for him to perform h's duty to his country. He has sacrificed all the social relations of life for the service of his country, and should not a greater value be f-et upon that sacrifice than the t making him a man of convenience T It shows a heartlepsners unparelled in the hbtory of military life, and 1 should be frowned upon by a people who owe their liberty, and the blessings of equal rights to the bravery and undaunted perceverance of the soldiar. In the days of the revolution, men struggled for their liberty, which was bound by the hand of oppression At the present day. the act of becoming a soldier isvolun- 1 tary?the liberty for which his father* fought and 1 died Is his. They are the voluntary defenders of the rights and honor of the country, and should be looked upon and treated as Much, Instead of the base and Inhuman treatment they are obliged to submit to. City Intelligence. i Ki.ari vr BrTwtrn thi Matos sun Stucsirr.?A serious difficulty his recently arisen between these two functionaries, whloh has caused considerable flutter amongst the officers in attendance on the Judges. The difficulty, It seems, has had its origin in the law passed in Match last, for regulating the city courts The law slluded to, directed the Hoard of Supervisors, of which the Mayor Is president, to provide court rooms, officers and stationery for the Judges; but In case the Supervisors should not do so, then the Sheriff of the city of New Y ork was authorised to perform that duty. 1 The Hoard of Supervinors did, In defiance of repented j remoustrances, neglect to comp'y with the ordinanoe ] (f the State.
