V, HAVEMKVLR.Mayor. It la a commendable custom, this giving thanks, and one eminently worthy of being followed by a Christian people, and by none more especially than the people of free, liberal, and republican America; for, of all of God's craatures on the face of the earth, they are pre-eminently blessed with all that is need* d for their temporal welfare and happiness. The right of worshipping our Creator IB any way which we deem best, we enjoy in the follett perfection; our institutions are the wonde' | and admiration of the world, our soil and climatu are unequalled for their variety and productive neas. While millions and millions of the liumaa race, in less favored lands, are either suffering the privations of hunger or groaning under the op pressions of the tyrant, or both, the people of this favored land enjoy civil and religious liberty in *he fullest sense of the term. Nor should we while returning "thanks this day for the manifold blessings which we as a [>eop!e enjoy," be unmind ful of the debt of gratitude that we owe to thosj |re#i wu jjcauaiu npnivB wuo, in "ine lim?S WHICH tried men's souls," freely spilt their blood, and laid dow* their lives, as a saciilice on the altar of their country's liberty.

I 9 f*rzam cammnmcation with hofopk, the Pa- mi nric and South Ajoiica.?A little more than *f two years since New York wai not interested to to the amount ot one dollar in Ocean Steam Navi- en gation, although tor more than a quarter ot a cen- an tury her nailing ship#, the admiration of erery ou countiy, might he met with in scores in the re- Ti motest quarters of the earth; yet so little attention T( whs given to this great feature of commerce, that, until within a short time, the project ot applying T( eteam to our sea-going vessels was jcarcely thought Fi of, except, indetd, by one or two persons who are now engaged <n an undertaking that will ere long astonish the world, and which promises, ia the tu- |,f ture, a rich reward for their enterprise and spirit. In New York has progressed with sure and rapid M strides id science, literature, relicion, and in every " thing gieat and useful emanating from the mind of man; but in no one branch of her industry is this ppint Bhown so clearly as in the recent entab lishment and progress of her ocean steamers. T wo years and a half have scarcely passed since the exi*riment was made, in this city, of propel- 81 ling ocean shipB by steam ; and now that the result of that individual attempt has prove! so profitable to the projectors, and so creditable to the country, a fleetofthe fineststaamers, involving c a capital of more than ten millions of dollars, bind u the London of the West to the busy cities of the v I Old Woild, as well as to the distant shores of the 0 i Pacific. By the aid of steam, the two oceans ^ i m a Bhort time, be held tributary to our j commeiw subject to the llag of the United 1 States. { But to rival the i^-tveiful and well organized 1 English lines to this city ??<! t0 ,j,e West In- 4 dies, is a work of some maguUU(jet an(j W1n call into action the powers of the mosi<T|>erience(i i and energetic engaged in the enterprise we have 1 just alluded to, and unless great judgment is ' exercised in the selection of officers, from the ' Executive down, and in the internal arrangements of the ships, the thing cannot be" accomplished. ^ An officer of a steamship, such as are in the Bremen, Savannah, Charleston and New Orleans ' trade, holds an honorable and responsible position. ' They should be men whose education and manners I would give character to the vessel or lint to which line they belong, and whose intercourse with society .whether at sea or on shore,should be marked with 1 a proper degree of self respect and dignity of charac- ' ter. This suggestion may appear, to many, irrelevant and out of place, but the eflects of an ill officered ship are so well understood by the travelling i>eople as to require no explanation further than is here given. A person cannot assume to be an officer on board of an English steamer, unless he is in a measure qualified in an intellectual point of view as well as in his ability to work or navigate a ship. This is a feature which has worked admirably since its adoption in their service, and has done much to advance the credit of their steamers for punctuality, respectability, and order. i The lines belonging to New York, now in opej ration, plying to and from foreign and coastwise ports, reach five in number, and employ twelve i steamers, which in the course of a year or less will be increased to twenty-five or more. These ! or? vpt in thpir infan(*w ?!.- ?? u*v / v. ,M ...v.. ....hmv/) uut tiuiu iuc |'iu^rrw they are making, and the encouragement they have eo far received irom the public, and by a * judicious course of management, they will aoon ] attain a footing as firm as any now in existence^ The great commercial emporium of the United r States is at present connected by steamships with d Liverpool, Southampton, Bremen, Havre, Chagres, t Havana, Bermuda, Savannah, Charleston, and e many ports on the Pacific, and when communica- d tion is effected through the Isthmus of Panama by railroad or canal, and all the advantages of this e route to China become demonstrated by solid 8 practical benefits thereby conferred upon her, 1 New York will stand, in point of facilities offered c to commerce, the rnoBt favored city in the world. The project of running a railroad over the thirty * miles of land intervening between Panama on n the Pacific, and Chagres river on the Atlantic has been ap.d is stiil held the most feasible of any yet a proposed, and now that we have steam?rs in ope- * ration connecting these points, and consequently the almost lnt-rnnnable shore of the Pa- * cifie, with New York, a grand effort should be made to effect this sure and expeditious communication without delay. With a road across the T, Isthmus, as is now agitated by some of the European powers, the Pacific would be brought, 1 with our present arrangements, within fifteen or f sixteen days of this city, and, by connecting F with Messrs. Howland and Aspinwall's steam- 11 era, a sale and comfortable passage to c Oregon would occupy but about thirty days, j ( The greatest proof ol the importance of this I route, and the advantages it offers in the way of a commerce, that can be adduced, is the fact that ! e the British West India Mail Company, at a recent | J meeting of the directors, with a view of facili- I taring the transit of money from the other side of 1 v America across the Isthmus of Panama, (which n money paid freight to this company on being > '' brought to Europe,) had agreed to advance, for the purpoee of improving the road, the sum of c eighteen thousand dollars, and would, in the v course of time, advance another three thousand L dollars to maintain the road in a passable stats. ; The object of the directors in entering into this agreement was to further the interests of the com- r pany, which they, as well as their government, are < ever ready to do, in the shortest possible notice. If a road here prcposed is of so much moment to the English people, how much more F must it be to the commerce of the United States 1 ' Our settlements in California and Oregon are ! growing fast m strength; emigration to both sec- ' tions c f our territory beyond the Rocky Moun- ! tains, is prosperous and steady, and only wants a -helping hand from government to accelerate the 1 tide of moving population which annually flows ! from Europe and the North, to California and the 1 vatt praines of the West. Government should do something to render these regions, where so many } I are willing to settle, easy of access, and thereby I nn rndlr th?? rrpn^ral interf??f nf th# cnnnirv r* ? ? C Po far, private enterprise has done much to ? effect this object; in fact nearly all that lias been i ' done, is on individual account*. 1 ? Our advertising columns within the last few J : mt<ntli* shows a large accession to the already I great travelling facilities this city enjoys above i 1 our neighbors. New lines, composed of fine fast j steamers have been formed to run in every direc- ' tioa, offering to travellers bound to the Old or New World ilie conveniences and comforts of home, ] with the sjieed and safety of the famed Hudson < River bofats. These lines have many good prin- ] ciples fatid are pretty well organized. Their steam- < ers have accomplished commanders, and are punctual in th?rir hour ol departure, so tlidt a per son can count v ith certainly upon the moment he may start for any poit between New York and Cape I loin, to Oregon, or to any of the cities of lvnope. The greatent of these iu importance is the Pacific cfmpnny which nin three fine steamers from Panama down to 3an Francisco, and intend to extend their eourse to the mouth of the Oregon rivr. These vets'lsare under cont act with the governm? nt for the transportation of the mails between the above points. The charges made for passage are, according to the following table?

The British West India Mail Company's boat, ?rhich leaves Bermuda on the 8th of each m?nth, >rings up the number engaged upon this continent. She leaves here generally on the 12th,and touch58 at all the British West India Islands. In addition to these, we have a monthly mail to Bremen ai.d Southampton, by the Ocean Steam Navigation Company's ships, which leave on the 20th, and a semi-monthly line by the Cunard vessels to Liverpool, and also a connection with Havre, by Captain MarehalTs ship United States. We have spoken of those only in actual service. ! Many more, now in course of construction, will ' swell the number, in one year, to Eearly double j ihose we have enumerated. I Postal Arrangements in pra^ci.?\\ e find , in our files of French papers the following article 1 which is very interesting, as well for this country is it has been for France :? Tbe public will understand that from the 1st of Ja- i nuary, 1849, the former pontage of letters, regulated kccordlng to distance. will be entirely reformed, and ] *ill be replaced by the charge of four cents for each ( letter, which will not weigh more than Mven-eighths of > in ounce, and forwarded to aoy part of the dominion j{ the FreBoh republic, including Corsica and Algeria. 1 Above tbe weight *>f seven-eighths of an ounce to 1 in ounce and seven-eighths, the postage of letters will i eight cents. Above an ounoe and seven-eighths tc twelve ounces ind a half, tbe postage is invariably regulated at tweu- | ;y cents (1 franc). The letters and bundles which vould weigh more than twelve ounces and a half will je charged with an additional postage of twenty cents or each twelve and a half ounces, or fraction of that weight. The two cents of sea transit, which are now applied 0 the letters forwarded to Corsica and Algeria. is abolsbed. These letters will not pay more than those circulating through France The postage of letters, directed to the members of he army and navy, actually serviag their country, vhich was previously five oents. is reduced to four lents ; and the?e letters are, for the future, consilered is those forwarded by the public. Nothing will be changed as regarda the present lostage of letters forwarded from one part of a city or 1 strict to another. Lettera stated, or stamped, as containing valu'b'e i hinge, papers or money, will pay a double postage, viz , j ight oents for a single letter through France and its ominiona. After the above arrangements, the ordinance liters into detail for the institution of printed tamps of several prices, which will be pasted upon he letters, as it ia done in England and in this :ountry. A These Btamps will be only sold at the post office nd by the agents and factcurs (bearer?) of the ad. limstration. We are glad to see that our sister republic has lready borrowed from England a system which re should have also adopted long since. It is to be hoped that the successor fo Gave John" on will look deeply into this matter. Thk Coitrt of Sessions, and thk^Kkkper of he Penitentiary.?By the proceedings of (he ourt of Sessions, published in another column, : wil 1 be seen that the Judges of the Court of Sesions, and the District Attorney, have felt themelves called upon to express their disapprobation, n a public manner, of the conduct of the keepers if the Penitentiary on Blackwell's Island. They omplain that their labors are rendered almost lugatory in certain instances, by the comforts florded to certain prisoners of wealth and influ. nee, who are sent to the Penitentiary to suffer he punishment due to violated law. The matter las now got to undergo a legal investigation, as it vculd seem, by the Recorder's expressed determilation to present the subject to the next Grand ury. _ The Steamer America left her dock, at Jersey ity, at 12 o'clock yesterday, for Halifax and Li" erpool.

In tins, however, they were ODly partially successful; a very large portion of the ' audience were resectable people, and their plaudits silenced every attempt at interruption, though tlie*e were so frequent as to mar the beauty of the performance. During the play cheers were several times marie for Forrest, and drowned by louder ] oneB for Macreadv. Pennies were thrown upon the stage amid calls and cries of the most disgraceful character, and in the last act, while Mr. M. was on the stage, an egg was thrown, and falling near his feet broke. Still he heeded not the intuit, but proceeded on through the piece. At the fall of the curtain there was the usual call, and Mr. Macready I i came before the curtain nmid an almost universal j : waving of hats, and the most tumultuous applause ' ; ever heard in a theatre. It was several minutes 1 before be attempted to speak, so loud and general was the noise of friends and foea. MACRKADY's SPKKCHi He at length said :? " He had understood, at New T?rk and Boiton, that he was to bp met by an organized opposition, but he bad abiding confidence in the justice of the Amerloan peeple. [Here the noise and confusion completely 1 drowned bis voice, and three cheen were attempted for Forrest and three heartj ones were given for 1 Macreariy ] He resumed by saying it was the custom in nts country never to condemn a man unheard [Cheers and calls, in which Forrest's name was heard. Mr M. said that it bad been said that he entertained 1 hostile feelings towards an actor in this country, and that he had evlnoed a feeling of opposition towards him?all which statements, severally and in the aggregate, he declared wholly and entirely unfounded. The actor alluded to had done that towards him what ha was nire no English actor would do, and what he be- 1 lleved no other American aotor would do?he had | openly hissed him. [Oreat noise and confusion, hisses and hurras ] That up to the time of that aot he had never entertained towards that actor a feeling of unklndnear, nor had be ever shown any since. [Collision in boxes, and great uproar all over the house.] When apposition Innis country had been organized against a French company, be actively interested himself to ?)Uy It. [Here he said something of the disreputable character of those who participate in suoh outrage*, ] which, amid the tumult, was lost to onr ear ] He said be folly appreciated the character and feelings of the j audience, and as to his engagement, if it was their will i he wa? willing to give it up at once, [no, no,?eheet a and hirres] but that he ahould retain In his memory the liveliest recollection of the warm and general sentiments of regard shown bim.and shouli speak of the American people, whom he had known and studied ror the last twenty jears, with the same kind feellnga that he ever had done. Throughout the c!osincr scenes, aa indeed he dirl throughout the entire j>1 ay. Mr. Macready bore up under the many vexatious annoyances of a small ! part ot the audience with great apparent good humor, but once, so tar as we saw, showing any warmth of feeling, and then but for a moment. The movement of the whole evening waa the most disgraceful that we ever saw in a theatre, and ' it was gratifying to hear the obiect of an assault so i brutal ind uncalled for, attribute it to the proper source?to a few ill bred, riotous persons, to be found in every community?in every nation. [From the Pennsylvanlan.J We received the followinc card late last evening. It is a reply to the speech of Mr. Macready, at the Arch Stieet Theatre, on Monday evening:? A <ARD. 1 Mr. Macready, in bis speech last night, to the au- ? dimcp asseitb ed at the Arch Street Theatre, made < allusion. I understand, to ' an American actor." who < bad the temerity, on one occasion, ' openly to hiss < him '' This Is true. and. by the way. the only truth which I have been enabled to gather from the whole ] scope of hit address But wby say an American j actor Why not openly charge me with the act? f?r ! | I did it. and publicly avowed It in the Timet news- , paper, ol l.ondon, and at the same time asserted my i tight to do so. I On the occasion alluded to. Mr. Macready Intro- j , duced a fancy dance into his performance of Hamlet, j which I denigrated as pat it mnurhoir. and which I I | hissed, for i thought it a desecration of the scene, and the audience thought so too, for in a few nights after- I ward* when Mr. Macready repeated the part of Hamlet I with the same ''torn-foolery," tha intelligent audienoe ' of Kdinbnrgh greeted it with a universal hiss Mr. Macrrady is stated to have said last night. tVat np to tbe time of this act on my part, he '-had never . entertained towards me a feeling of nnklndness " I unhesitatingly pronounce this to ba a wilful and unblushing falsehood I most solemnly aver and do be- j lleve that Mr. Macready, instigated by his narrow, , envious mind, and his selfish fears, did secretly?nat > openly?suborn several writers for the Fngllsh press. ' 1 to write me down Among them was one Foster, a I ' toady" of the eminent tragedian?one who Is ever . ready to do his dirty work; and this Foster, at tha 1 bidding of his patron, attacked me In print even I ' b*fore I bad appeared upon tbe London boards, and I i continued his abuse of me at every opportunity after- | wards. I M?rt alfo, and aolemly believe that Mr Maoready connlvtd. when hi* friend* went to the theatre In London. to hiss dip. and did biaa mi, with the purpose of driving ire from the atatre?and all thil happened , man j month* b?f< re the affair at Edinburgh, to which Mr. Macready refer*, and In relation to which h? je?uit- ' Ically remark* tbat "until that aot. he never entertained toward* me a feeling of uokindneaa."

' Mr. Macready baa a very lively Imagination, and often draw* npon it for hla facta. Ha aaid, In a apeech at 1 New York, that there al*o there was aa "orgaalzed opposition1' to him, which 1* likowtee falaa The-e wh no ' oppoeitlon manifested towarda him there?for I waa la the city at the time, and wa* careful to watch every movement wltb regard to auch a matter Many of < my frlenda called upon ma when Mr. Maoready waa i announced to perform, and propoaeii to drive him from the atage far hla conduot toward* me In I.ondoa.

It is a great charaeter, and in the handfl of a talented kctor, cannot bat win great favor with an audlenoe. Mr. Murdoch does not vary thi tonaa and manner of hia Richelieu ao muoh aa some aotors who have performed :he part upon the boarda In this oity. He la the old nan all through, and doea not at times aeem to forget ;bat the weight of years la upon him. Mr. M's climactic paints were well made, bat in the more quiet, yet most impressive passages?those passagee which carry with them the pith and essence of the dootrlnes and entimenta which the author intenda to teaoh in these niiunui?the utor failed to make tha imnratainn which the text la capable of producing. A quietly read, but well emphasised sentence, la juat as effective us one delivered in a louder tone; And a high order of talent la undoubtedly often displayed In theae same ijultt readings; but where a passage contains a gem, it is not enough to Bay the line will tell for itself. The author may call upon his reader to use his own judgment in discerning the beauties of a work; the aotor, however, assumes the task of pointing out these beauties, by look, tone, gesture, emphasis, or otherwise. Some readers are no much afraid of mouthing words, that they run into the fault opposite to that which they shun. K. scaping Seylla. they are not oareful enough to avoid Charybdis. Mr. M. has not entirely avoided it. Tho audienoe. however, expressed their approbation frequently during the evening, and at the close ef the piece, called him before the curtain. He came out, after conquerable delay, and thanked the audience for their flattering demonstration, bat at the Fame time expressed hia disapproval of the custom of calling actor out at the close of a performance. The piece was well cast throughout: Mesars. Dyott, Fredericks, Vacbe, Baker, and Miases Wallaok and llildreth. with others, all aequitted themselves well. The bill was made up besides "Riahelieu," of a performance upon the glass bells, and the farce ofK His Lest Leas," in whion Mr. Maoarthy was oast for O'Callaghan. National Theatric.?Yankee Hill ia attracting crowds to this house nightly, and the hearty laughter and enthusiastic applause which are elicited by his graphic and unique delineations of the true blue, full blooded down-easter, make the house resound again. Of course the character ia somewhat exaggerated in Mr. Hill's personations?that is absolutely nscertary id penormmg any smgie line ox cnaracter? but hi* easy actiDg. comical look*, and ready wit, all combine to pirate all those who hear hits. Last evening the first pieoe was " The Green' Mountain Boy," in which he plsjs Jrdediah. It is a very interesting drama, and went off with much tcUt. ''New York as it is." and the farc? of ' New Notions,*' with Mr Hill as Major Wheeler, mad* up the remainder of the bill. Meters. McFarland, Tllton, Taylor, Mrs. Chapman and the other performers all do well. Today Mr. Chanfrau Intends giving the holiday folks a good chance to enjoy themselves, as there will be an afternoon as well as an evening performance given. Both the entertainments will be capital one*. The afternoon one will oonsist of the drama of u Murrell, the Land Pirate.1' in which Burke ia so comioal; the ever populor " New York as it ia," and the faroe of " The Omnibus."

Tonight. the" Good Old Kngllsh Gentleman," " Musioal Arrivals," and " Tom and Jerry in America, or Life in the New World," in which Mr. Burton takei the part of James Hall Tr?llope. This is an excellent piece, ?nd should be seen by all who wish to laugh and enjoy themselves. We say. go to Burton's to-night, and go arly and secure a good seat. Trton and Thompson's Circus. Broadway?The highly attractive bill put forth by this excellent oompuny, drew together, on last evening, a crowded as-enib'sge of the admirers of equestrian performance tnd athletic exerolsea. In the latter, the French brothers, Martlnettl, in "Aerial Tableaux," were rapturously applauded, and the entire performances of the ^venining passed off with rcUt.
