Sews from Europei The Washington, Captain Johnston, with sh days' later intelligence irom Europe, will be dm at this port to-morrow. The Ilibernia, Captan Shannon, with one day later, will be due at Bo.^toi fct the same time. KTAinlfrlfc llort I n<>a.Th?lr Tonrl^nrv Tn another column will be found a remarkabh communication lrom Mr. A. Brisbane, extracte< from the Tnbunc of Tuesday. We regard thii document as peculiarly interesting, as elucidating with greater boldness and frankneBB than has ye been attemptf d, the views and wishes of thoa philosophers who regard Fourier as a second M? hornet, and who would introduce into this, an other countries, a system even more despotic an rannicaJ, ovt r body and soul, than tiiat originate by the great mussu'man humbug. And further, w regard it as somewhat important, at the prescn moment, when the disciple and mouth-piece o Mr. Brisbane, in this city, is a candidate befor< the people for their suffrage* to make him a mem ber of the Iloute of Representatives of the Unitet States. It will be seen that Mr. Brisbane claims, wit! much confidence, that the bulk of the Germai population is infected with the leprosy ol Fourier em, and that association and republicanism, de mocracy and infidelity, advance step by step Is'ow we, who have travelled over broad Germany f^jom north to south, and from east to west, am who hzve closely studied the character of iti people, deny this aliogether. The Germans an eminently practical in their notions, as may ever be observed by those who have daily inter course with them in this country. All oui observations, when amongst them, tended tc produce the conviction that in all Europe there is no people so likely to make so near an approach to our own system, both social and political, rs the Germans; and the truth of this belief recent events have most forcibly demonstrated. The tumultuous roar ol the French revolution?the incidents, of a character important to a'l Christendom, that daily, in quick succession, trod each on the heels of the other, from the flight of Louis Philippe to the elevation of Civaignac?diveited the thoughts and thegaze of the wonoer-stiuck world lrotn what was all this time taking place in Germany. Well, during this time, the people of that country had been phlegmat'cally and quietly mobbing their ministers, kicking out their kings, upsetting a throne in one place, erecting a republic in another, and when the world looked again, there was a confederation of . German states, almott completely assimilating to our own. They have been approximating more and more closely ever since, and the day is not distant when the whole of that once fjrand empire, ancient Germania, shall form a noble band of republics on the model oi our own. The Germans have loo much practical good sense to be led away from their true interests by the folly of communism, or atheism, or socialism. Mr. Brisbane, then, slanders the people of Germany, when he re. presents ihem as lar^Hy leavened with Fourierism, and prediF|>OFed to atheism and immorality: and, indeed, it would appear that this misrepresentation is not without a motive, for, in the same breath, he breaks into absolute worship of the English aristocracy, and calls it "the ennobling and savmf principle of that country." It is no matter of surprise that there should be a strong sympathy between the English ariBtocracy and euch men as Mr. Greeley and Mr. Brisbane, who preacn new systems lor the purpose of obtaining over the irdisciples and votaries that absolute mastery and dominanee which is he object of such men's ambition. The tendency of all such doctrines b mule sltikingly apparent from the letter to which we ag^in refer our readers. Mr. Brisbane denounces com. merce as "the vilest of all pursuits," calculated to make men "cowards and cheats," "gross, de* graded and poverty stricken," and as "thoroughly corrupting and i-erverting the human heart." We have said Mr. Brisbane speaks boldly, and it willbe acknowledged that it re piire-i much bold. neea to utter, so gravely, absurdities so monstrous to a community curh as the people of the f * lifted Ktutea. Commeice?\s by it is the life blood of our H)kteni: welling out from the great heart of our 7 ninn 1 e\ ?wtr?>milii'? **n'! . ? f - . ... .... . ? r, ouu M iuiiHug irnm ine extremities back ugam to the heart, in beautiful and haimooious circulation. The artisan s?-ll his i.iboi for a price, and bu\s his necesniries f>r a price?m n it?t cum tierce 1 The agriculturist buys the implements o! lubor and hdla ihe product ol Itia land am! ci the sweat of his brow for a price ?ia it not commerce 1 The Idnvyor buys Ins legs! leUuian, and, sowing it in tlie foil of Ins own mind, and timluritig it to a perfect growth, m ils it again to his clu ut for price?ia it not commerce * And so we mi^ht go on, enumerating every condition ar.d cld-u of beings, forming our social system. And, then that mercantile basinets, tecknically known by the name of commerce, vs it not to the people of this country as the very air we breathe ! Im it not the outlet of industry? he source of national and individual wealth?the main element of our greatness ! And by thi? much maligned commerce, is not erery trade and irofession benefitted, from the woodman under whose sturdy stroke falls the gigantic oak, which forms the ribs or the tall merchantman that I ploughs the sea, to the pilot who guides her proudly into port?through all the stages of her building, lading, freighting, navigating, and consignment 1 But, really, this is attempting to demonstrate wha is too axiomatic to be demonstrable. But it is not commerce alone that provokes the wrath of Mr. Brisbane, and the philosophers of his school. The institution of marriage, and the uocuine <>i uie immortality < i tne soui, excite their special fcbhorreuce. Their views of marriage, il carried out, would introduce a system Of bestial atrocicity, which would not be tolerated in any decently ordered menagerie. To comment on such a system, ?n a community like this, is wholly j j unnecessary. To call atlentio i to it, ib quite 1 sufficient to provoke its universal and indijjnant I condemnation. Mr. Greeley, the exponent of these socialist doctrines, and the disciple of Fourier and Brisbane, lias been recently nominated as the candidate ol the wings lor the sixth Congressional district in this c 'y. The i ublication in the Tribune of this letter from M. Brisbane, may^ therefore, be regarded as important at thi* moment, as shadowing forth the principles by which Mr. Greeley will be guided in Congress. It will be for the people of that district to determine whether they will en" | dorse, by his election, his views and those of Mr. Brisbane, in opposition to commerce, in opposition to the institution of marriage, and in condemnation of the doctrine of the immortality of the soul. For our own part, we should like well enough to | DCC UUI tUlCIIIJ'Uiai) iU UIC X1UUSC Ul lVC|HCCCIua tives, but tor this, that hia notions on the above mentioned subjects are not such as any moral, ra tional, or well regulated constituency can subscribe to. The Enlargement of the Battery.?We have carefully watched the movement of this affair, from its incipient state, to the present time, when i it assumes an aspect of the favo. of the Common \ Council. A ieport has been presented by a special J committee of the Board of Assistant Aldermen, 1 and met with the sanction of that body, favorable ) to the proposition. \ We have that report before us, and, really, a ca2 sual glance would lead to the belief that the work, ) if an improvement, could be made at a very i trifling cost to the city. But, in the nicety of their calculation, the committee have apparently made a very flagrant error, and, in the main -arm of the J wall, substituted yards for feet, which, upon care" fill px.iminntiori. mnv makp ? immm?ni * in the cost. They propose to Till in some twelve acres, or thereabout, for which the report alleges the corporation will receive $78,275 5), while the c building of the bulk-head and sea-wall will cost s flGl,160, leaving a deficiency of $'*3,012 30, which 1 the city will be required to pay. Bat it is very 1 evident a wall and bulk-head, of the dimensions proposed, cannot possibly be constructed tor any such price, nor for a less sum, at the smallest pos; sible calculation, than $150,000, which would leave 1 'he city resiKjnsible for $72,000,000. s The report informs us that the earth, necessary , for the filling in, would be obtained from cont tractors, who are engaged in building sewers in e I the lower part of the city, and which would rei i quire but two or three years, llow preposterous d | is the idea ; twelve acres of land to be made from d the refuse earth of sewers, while a sewer of the d largest dimensions through every street below the e City Hall would not fill one-fourth of the proposed t addition ; bes des, more'than one-half the streets f are already provided with sewers. ; We are also told that the proposed addition will add from $1,000,000 to $2,000,000 to the as1 sets ot the city, and that "a single acre sold from the present Battery, from any part of it l least useful for the purposes to which it ia devol ted, would not only pay for the whole work, but - leave a surplus of at least $100,000 to the credit of - the city treasury." This assertion looks some. thing like the real intention ef the authors of the ? scheme. This, however, they say, is merely to 1 frhow the relative co6t of the work, with respect to j its future valuation. We are not at all surprised at i this movement, and only wonder that something l | more ridiculous, if | ossible, has not, long ere this, ciiiaiiati u IIUII1 uiv^c wiium me people, in good laiui r make their legislators. Has it ever been the case i that the Battery was insufFicent for the purposes of a promenade to all who may have visited it 1 We afiirm not. Then, wherefore the necessity of its enlargemei. 7 A view of the Kast river is spoken of as something very desirable. Suppose the addition be made, the view of that river would only reach about as far up as the navy yard, and perhaps to Williamsbuig. Well, that would be some, thing, to be ture, but the view would not pay the ccbt of the addition. It would be much better if the Common Council w uld devise and execute means to keep the Battery in a proper condition. and make it a desirable promenade, than think of adding more land to that which ia now neglected. But this is an age of wonders and humbugs, and we should not be surprised, if this measure be adopted, that a proposition is not brought forward and carried, to construct a museum of natural curiosities, or like foolish project, " lor the pleasure and amusement of the people." If their interest was studied more, and their " pleasure and amusement" less, there would be a greater chance for improvement; and we hope the people, whom they so desire to please, will, wnh oue voice, put a stoP ?o the harem-scarem legislation, which has already embarratsed the finances of the city and heaped tuxes upon taxes, until property will scarcely realize a sufficient interest, in many places, to keep it in proper repair. We have long since ceas'-d to hope for good from a body of men whose sole aim seems to be how they can gain political position, which, at the pre" sent day, is as unenviable, with high-minded men, as it is injurious to the moral character. We shall j bce, however, what course this matter will take in j the Board of Aid* rtnen, and, until that tune,j|^ftA forbear to revert to the subject, which ib en1^^^ unworthy of notice, except from the reckless manner in which the people of the city are compelled, by appropriation alter appropriation, as foolish and extravagant as useless, to expend their money for those things winch cannot possibly benefit themselves or any body else. Mk. Brooks ami iiis Nomination.?Mr. .lames J'.rooks, one of the nominees of the wings, as a candidate to represent the Sixth district in Congress, and his friends, are striving hard to neutralize the effect of the tirade of abuse which teemed from his paper, the E rprr. t, against Ireland and the Irish, a M;ort time since. We have no doubt that Mr. Brooks regieis sincerely his conduct in that matter. lor it cannot !>? doubted that the inveterate hostility w hich lit displayed toward* tint* class of our lelluw citizens, and his repeated and strenuous eflorts to heap ridicule on the Irish Directory, and to prevent any aid or assistance being given to Ireland by American*, huve made a deep and lasting im* piefsion 011 the Irish voters ol New York. Hf has good n ason, therefore, to fed that his conduct on tuat occasion will be remembered on the 7th ol November. Mr. Rrook* cannot but be aware th it he and his paper were heartily groaned by the Irish at Vauxliali (Jaiden, on more than one occasion . siid leM the Irish hhould f>rget the treatment which th?y receivid at his hands, we understand th it all the articles on Ireland which have appeared in his pa|?er, will be published in pamphlet form, a lid diHributad tnroughout the Bixth district on the day of election. Deaths op Distinguished Mxn.?Within the last two weeks no less than six remarkable men have died, namely: the Hon. Dixon II. Lewis, United States Senator; Jeremiah Mason, the distinguished lawyer of Boston; William Lawrence, the eminent manufacturer; the Hon. Harrison Gray Otis, the distinguished statesman of the old regime; the once rich and courted Martin Duraldo, the son-in-law of the Hon. Henry Clay ; and Hrevet Major General Stephen W. Kearny, one of the most accomplished officers of the American army. Tlieatrltal and MumIchI. Park Thsatse ?" Founded on Facts''wai beautifully played last night at the Park. Mini Taylor, Mr. Gilbert and Mr. Barrett were particulmiy excellent in tbelr parts, and elicited the applause and admiration of a discerning audience. Mr. Power followed, In the ' IrUh Ambatsador" and l! The Nervous Man.'' We think we Bee in this young gentleman the undeveloped germs of great talent ; but at present he is evidently to* much ot a novice on the stage to exhibit real genlua and full powers. We notice three especial de fret* In olm?? want of confidence, a want of life and animation. and. above all, a want of voice. None of th?pe defects, however, are radical or Irremovable fault*. He may soon acquire confldenoe, be m*y easily attain more movrm?nt and life, and the organ of voice may be strengthened and improved. But if Ylr Power is defective in there thr?e particulars, there are cue excellencies which be po.Kessea He is natural, easy, unaffected ; bis face and figure are good, bis gestures are good, hi* expression is adapted to tbe subjeot; and if be has not jet attained tbe power and confidence of a great actor, happily for bim. he has not fallen into any of tbe vulgar defects of an infsrior one. In fact we might say of him tbat be is at present in a state of formation. He is a sort of neutral. He is not mean or little as an actor, nor is he great or distinguished ; but we think, however, he will become so, provided he could aoquire the three qualities in which be Feems daAeient, viz : 1st, more impudence and boldnecs; 2d. more vivaeity and animation, which we think would follow more confidence ; and, 8d. more strength and compass of voice. His voice is, per ir, good. There are no def*ots of affectation or mannerinn about It and it has acquired no immovable habitude or unpleasant fixity ; but it is quite too weak and too low. F.ven this defect may How from want of oonfifance Upon tbe whole, while Mr. P. may beoome groOT act?r, he will never beccise altogether a little one. Bowriv Thkatrf.?The large audience which was assembled at tlii* house lust evening c?uld not have been otnerwlse man gratilled at tbe elegant manner in which the various entertainment* passed oif. "Life, or tbe Scenes of Early Vice," becomes more and more j popular every time it la performed. IVe have already noticed this plectjat length?it has a sound, moral tendency, and Is calculated to do much good in the way of a warning to youth. The conclusion of the piece is ; well managed, and wethlnk leaves a belter impression tbsn if both brother and sister were to die in their I wretchedness The New Orleans Serenade , with their fine singing, are milch applauded every evening. There are six members in thiw b?n<l an 1 their expurtness as musicians, and talents us vocalists, are well xecognixed by all who bear them. Tbey havo gained i a very great reputation, both at home and abroad, and though their European tour was quite a protracted | one. tbey return to their native land as good republi; caneasever. Their burlesque on the famous Italian | opera singers, such as Jenny Lind. Ma lame (Jrisl, Ma: dame Alboni, Lablache, Mario, liardioni, Tamburinl, : fce., are most amusing, and those who have heard tho?e artists state that tbe Serenaders imitate them most happily To-night, the performances will consist of "I.iJe." tbe Serenader's concert, the faroe of '-Going to tbe Trot," dancing by Mr. O. W Smith, and slng! irg by Mr. Wood. Broadway Thfatrf.. ? Last evening, Morton'd comedy of "Town and Country" was performed, with 1 Mr. Dyott, Mr. Blake, Mr. Shaw, Mrs. Abbott, and j Miss F. Vtl'rli ,'n the principal parts. Mr. Dyott, as I iicuucu uituii'j) ureM 1W\A luc S(ipi?us? BO 11 DBTallJ I bestowed upon him. He is fast fitting himself for th< | first rank in bis profession. Mr Blake's Kit Coaej ; was well received, and Miss Waliack auted the part ol ; Rosalie \iith much quiet grace and feeling. Mr. Shan had more room for display in the cbaraoter of Plastic. He played with accuracy fcnd taste, but might hav? ma'r ?ZTb of the part. After the comedy. "Li Xingv rllla" was danced by M'Ue Celeste and Mods. Wiethoff ao handsomely as to produce an encore, whica, by the way, we alwajs regret to nee; a dance should never be encored. This evening, the fine old eomedy of "Speed the Plough" will be presented, with Va.jlu as Sir Abel Handy. Dyott as Henry, Lester as l!>fc Handy. Mrs. Abbott as Miss Blandford, Miss Wallaoi as Susan, and Mrs. Watts as Lady Handy. This is a fine cast, and no doubt the play will go off in good style. The entertainments will conclude with the farce of "An Object of lntsrest." with Mrs. Watts a< Kanny Cribbles. We perceive that Mr. Korrest li | ecgaged to appeaT on Friday and Satu?.ly? evenings li '-Jack Cade" and the "Gladiator." National Thkathk ?11 Othello" ww ih? attraottoi at this houee last evening Othello, the noble Moor, bj J. R. Scott, and again, " Ote'lo, the Jealous Nigger,' i T'. D. Rice, both on the same eveniog taus showI lng blm up in two lights. Mr. Soott's perforaianoe o: the Moor was a mo&t elegant piece of acting, like all o Mr. Scott's Sbaksperian char*cterr. His voice ha* nou I perfectly recovered its original strength ?nii m* i... never seen him la better acting trim i,'Uan he is at present, For many )t&T. be has been toiling to make a reputation ns a tragedian, and his efforts have, indued, been crowned with sucaess, as he now standi high among ti:e actcrs of America. Hi# foreign reputation likewise. Is great, and with owe on his part, Mr. Scott has a long and profltabie career before him Mr. Stark's lego. la?t evening, was an excellent piece ol acting, and reflected much credit on that careful and judicious young actor. After the tragedy came a dance from Misa Carline, after which the burlesque on Othello waa played. This is a most amusing piece ol fun, and Kioe's pertormance ofthcjealou* nigger wai rich in the extreme. With the eminent attraction! which are now set forth at the Nation *1, it is nol surprising that the houB? is so crowded every evening To-night " Damon and Tythias" and " Otello'1 will be played. Bi rtos'i Thkatrie.?Quite a respectable number ol patrons vi?ited again, last evening, this entertaining place of amusement, to witness the third performance of the new comedy, called the " Breach ef Promise," and tho laughable farce of " Anything for a Chage;" both these pieces are deoided hits Mr. Burton, in the nt !> - . ri .. . . rita of tbe rt>p--cti*? cWWtiona wheihw3F5ir^ camelain the aE.SSlw* the i>?rf?>r jHiK pbantu, the Olympian ilBMIffttiona by KiimMb bojc, or tbe fliihtihf pooicIJVOwld b? kat MjjttitopM# the enjoyment* ami rwr??tloB fcMk inrnte are calculated to pro<|Mti:4fe4 have In V 1 ri m the H'Juiir* I.

Mr Camp app-ared in the costume of a Sixteenth ward minute man. and after speakiug in glowing terms of Cass and Butler, turued 'hit attention to Met-ere Law and Bradhurst.

I'tiiLAUKLrHiA, November 1, 1848. We bare received from St. Louis to day, the Md tanouncement of the death of Brigadier General Kearny. The despatch states that at one time it tu believed that he would reoover from the malady that aftlieteil him ; but two day* since his disease took an unexpected turn whleh baffled all the sk 111 of his medloal adTiters, and be expired on Tuesday morning. General Kearny was born in Newark, New Jersey, about the year 1793, and was thus in his 65th year at the time of bis death. He entered the army, as Lieutenant, in 1812; fought at Queenston, and served through the ! war with credit, lie was made a Major in 1824, a Lieut. Colonel in 1833, a full Colonel in 183S, and a full Brigadier General in 1846. His abilities as a tactloian were acknowledged to be very superlo-, and hava been frequently made use of b> our tovernuent in drilling and improving ttie cavalry arm of the service. When | the war ulth Mexico broke out, Gen. Kearny was selected to oommand the expedition against New Mexloo and California. His mireh to these distant provinces was admirably ) tanned and admirably executed. The various engagements on the river Gila, with superior forces of the enemy, and the suppression of the revolt of the nttive population, established his character aa an able commander in the battle field, and as a judicious military governor. On his return to the United States from California, be was greeted everywhere with manifestations of public confidence and commendation, \for Ms military services and general worth. From Rio Janeiro.

H.U39 IS,?44 ?,!>:? 61741 According to this?and we take it for granted the figures are eorreot, as they are taken from the oosapany'a reports-there has been, during the past year, m decrease in the aggregate receipts of $14,630, an increase in the onrrent expenses of $0,630, and a derrittlA in nat tnnalnfa r\f tfcOJ 17R Th? dlvM?Hllfl ltst year (being two, of per cent each,) amounted to $65,000, or twenty- Are hundred dollars more than the n<tt earning*. It la by no mean* a favorable feature In the financial affaira of this oompany, that with the Inoreased facilities for the transportation of paisengers and Irelght which the oompany have provided during the past year, there should have been a tailing off in the receipts from both of these sources. It shows the effect of the tremendous opposition which has been brought to bear, particularly upon this road?an opposition which will inorease rather than diminish, and which must ultimately cut down its receipts to a point so low as to make dividends entirely out of the question. The Fall River route has thus far proved the most powerful competitor the Stonlngtonline has had to contend with, and the opening of the New York i and New Haven rpad. connecting this oity with Bolton and the whole of the interior of New England, will completely destroy the winter business of the Stonington line; and as tbat season's business of that oompany has been larger than on any other of the steamboat routes, on aooount of its inland oourse, it follows that there must be, another year, and ever after, a great diversion of the KaBtern travel from the water to the land route, particularly during inolement weather, when the navigation of the 8ound li frequently dangerous, and at all times unpleasant. upun me expiration ox me present mail oontract be, tween the Postmaster Qeneral and the Stonington | Company, which takes place In a short time, It will, we ; learn, be n ade with companies forming the land route, as It insures more regularity and mva expedl1 tion ; the frequent failures in the transportation of mails by the wattr route, and the disappointment and loss caused by failing to deliver the mails of the British steamers in season, has long oalled loudly for ; the change. The debt of the Stonington Railroad Company ha" been increased, during the past year, nearly two hundred thousand dollars, and now amounts to nearly ' eight hundred thousand dollars, which,twith the capital stock, makes an aggregate of $2,100,000. The interest on the debt this year will be $18 000, or $12 000 more than fortlie year just closed. In view of all these faots> the future earnings of this cotupiny must exceed those of any previous year, to give the stockholders even the dividend they have received within th? paet eighteen months. Those who are interested can judge from the present condition of the oompan j: from its nrosneots. from its manai?mnnt. from th? position cf its stock, and tbe complete control a small clique of i.olders in Wall street hare over its mirket value?from the uncertainty which has existed, from the declaration of the first dividend up to the day previous to the payment ot the last, whether one would be paid or not?what security there is in holding the stook, and what return they may expect from the investment. It is our Impression that the two lines of railroads running to points on Loop Island Soucd, wbioh depend entirely upon the through travel between New York and Boston for net earnings, will, In a short time, be in the same category?the want of suflloient income to make dividends. The Nor?rlohand Wor. eester will never make not her dividend ont of Ita earnings, and the Stonington cannot make more thMt one or two more, at the most. The Fall River Railroad has a lai??lvc*l travel, which, with the large portion of the through travel that route commands, must make It paying property; the New Haven and Hartford Railroad is similarly situated, and is already highly productive. The completion of the New York and New Haven Railroad will open a new era in the Eaatern travel, and prove the ruin of those companies which have heretofore been only able to drag along a iokly and doubtful existence, even when they almost monopolised the whole of the through travel between this city and Boston.
