Movement* Before the Klectlon?Who are the Best Taylor Men f Our amiable and modest cotemporary, the Courier and Enquirer, issued yesterday morning a most elaborate and magnificent puff on the gentlemen ol the recent Wall street committee, which met sometimes at Lafayette Hall, sometimes at the Union (Jlub. ana wmcn came uui in ittvur ui General Taylor in February last, and made prepa- i rations for the general mass meeting to bring him ! out lor the Presidency, which took place on the j twenty-second of that month. The excuse put forth for pronouncing this elaborate pufTon that committee, and on its chairman, Hugh Maxwell, grows out of some intimations which have been made in some obscure quarter, ti>?? Mr. Maxwell, and some of his assistants, will be applicants lor office as soon as General Taylor bhall reach the Presidency. Our cotemporary j denit s that Mr. Maxwell is an applicant for office; but the denial is confined to lum, and does not include several of the other sixteen gentlemen, or their connections, who formed the committee; many of whom were connectcd with the famous pipe-laying gentlemen of 1840, who were clamorous lor office under General Harrison?who got office Iromliim; but whose policy and influence broke down his administration in a few weeks after it was formed. There may be some gentlemen on that committee who do not want office. Possibly Mr. Moses II. Grinnell does not ask for office himself; but there is no doubt that he wishes some paiticular lriends appointed to particular offices i'ObSlDly iVir. i'rescou nail may uisuiauii niouiuw lor office; but we do not think that he would refuse the p( st of District Attorney ot this district. Possibly Mr. Simeon Draper may disclaim wishing for office; but he certainly would not refuse the collectorehip of this port. Possibly Mr.Webb, if he do not look to something higher, would not refuse what he wished for before?the post office. We are willing, however, to make every allowance for the purity, the independence, the energyf the perseverance, and all the other qualities, which the committee might moderately claim in aiding and assisting the movement which carried General Taylor into the presidency ; yet the committee cannot claim too much credit, nor must they attempt to exercise a sinister influence in determining ihe appointments, or shaping the policy of the new administration, as was done in the case of Gen. Hariison. With respect to the elaborate claim put forth by our coteinporary for this committee?that Gene fa) Taylor has been elected principally through their labors?we Deg leave to deny it in the most pointed manner. As early as the month of May, 1816, there was a standing committee organized, with branches in almost every State in the Union?a committee of energetic, talented men?who took up the cause cf<>en. Taylor, and continued to enlighten the public on kits great merits and qualifications, from that period up to the result ot the recent election. This committee was composed < f nearly twenty-five editors, writers and reporters, connected with a certain journal called the JVrtv York llcrald. Express s were run, bringing the first intelligence of the great battles fought by General Taylor, nnd this intelligence was spread thiough the country in various ways, by the labor and energy of that committee, aided, as we were? by sub-agents, to the number of two or three hun" dred, scattered over the Union, and even in foreign countr:es. In every possible shspe, Gen. Taylor's r ame and character w?-re placed before the country n a popular and'imposing attitude ; and the result of such labors was gradually seen to spring up in ruminations bv meetings, both of whig* and de mocrats, in various parts of the country, besides receiving the approbation of nuarly one hundred journals, belonging to ail parties, long before Mr. Hugh Maxwell was heard of in the nutter. This movement continued from the mouth of May, lstfi, without intermission, up to the time when our cot*mporar\, the Cout ier awl Etn/uirtr, states Mr Maxwell, Mr. Grinnell, and the other Wall street gentlemen, made up their minds to come out in favor ol the man who had been made popu lar by previous and ether persons' efforts. But this is not all. Our cotcmporury claim9 for his committee prodigious merits. Let them have the merit of supporting the caufe of Gen. Taylor for a few mor.ths previous to his election, ulien they found the whole country going for himWe hardly think they deserve any other merit or credit than that of seeing which way the tide was going. It is well known that our cotemporary and >J1 the influences by which he is surrouaded, were preparing, on the most extensive scale, to bring out Gen. f*cotl, and set aside Gen. Taylor, for many months previous to last January: and br that time the splendid campaigns of Gen 8c"t' from VeraCru7. to Mexico, furnished them with a vnffici' nt platform on which to raise his standard ; and but for the unfortunate predicament of the k*?i) j>Ulc vi t>vu}>, ' aiiU lac { of Gen. Scott niter the battles were fought, we have do doubt that the Courier and Enquirer, and all its influences,would never have thought of supporting Gen. Taylor at all. Their first lore, having thrown Mr. Clay overboard, was Gen. Scott, and nothing but his unlortunate position tendered it necessary for them to fait back upon Gea. Taylor, whose name, popularity, and position had been made throughout the country months before Mr. Maxwell, or Prescott Hall, or Mr. Gnnnell, ever msde up their minds deliberately to come forward in the movement which they headed. These, we believe, are correct views in the smal' mutters connected with the first popular movement in thiB city to organiz* a Taylor party, and bring his nomination to a distinct issue. We aVe .?.ILan ... n. .... (kaaa n..nlLnidn n rail I, t"/l r ikjllP V* IlllMg IU (JI?C UICDC ^riillCIUCU UUC v. Ituit l"l HIVH ttl'orts, after they could not help themselves; but 1 no more. They must not, however, think of mo. noj>olising tor the small committee that may have met in Lafayette Hall, or at the I nion Club, ot in Wall Btreet, all the merit of helping the cause of General Taylor, and of miking him so popular as a candidate as he was, when there are others, more numerous, and who were much earlier in the field, who ought to have a share of the glory.? Neither must they attempt to bring around Gen. Taylor influences similar to those which produced so unfortunate an effect on the great victory which carried General Harrison into the presidency, eight years ago. Several of the leading spirits connected wvth the committee, headed by Mr j Maxwell, are some of the identical parties who caused the catastrophe to General Harrison's administration and the victory of that day. On many occasions our cotemporary's committee have acted towards the independent friends of General Taylor in a very mean, narrow and contemptible way. At another time, we may state something more fully and particularly; but our present object in making these remarks is, to prevent malign influences from leading General Taylor astray, either in the selection of his cabinet advisers, the appoint* menta to subordinate offices, or in shaping the ge* neral ]>olicy ot his administration. All ultra pro" scriptive principles, affecting either men or mea" sures, should be avoided; and it the Maxwell com* mittee here, keep a dignified and respectable posiMon, and will gire its influence in favor of modera tion and justice, without leaning towards the unfortunate policy which broke down General Harrison's administration, then we shall give them some credit for discrimination, patriotism and good sen?e. Th? Butlkr Cask?Singi r i.ar Developments. The first day's proceedings on the argument in the action of Mrs. Fanny Kemble Butler against her husband, now going on before the court in Philadelphia, were given in our columns yesterday ; and the second day's proceedings will be found in our columns to-day. There has been a great deal cf inquiry by the I public relative to the causes which led to the unpleasant differences that have taken place between her and her husband. The great fame and talents of Fanny Kemble before her marriage very naturally attracted much attention to her recent movements, embracing the separation from her family, and her return to the stage. We fear, however, that the mystery hitheito banging over these matters will not be removed by the proceedings now going on before the court in Philadelphia. Thus far the proceedings and arguments are full of legal technicalities, and only incidentally refer, now and again, to the real cause of separation and difficulty between the parties, unly one strange and singular fact seems to have transpired in these proceedings, and that iB some mysterious cocnection or acquaintance between Miss Sedgwick and Mrs. Butler, or the Sedgwick family and MrsButler, which appears to have created a great deal of discontent and displeasure in the mind ot Mr. I Butler. As this affair, however, now stands, it would seem that the principal offence perpetrated hv Mr?. Under towards her husband was the act I ot simply receiving a letter from Miss Sedgw;ck, who 18 a lady of a literary turn of mind, and iives somewhere in Massachusetts. There is a good deal said about tne whole matter, but the receipt of this letter seems as yet to be the principal cause of offence. Time may probably bring out the whole of the mysteries; but all is still as mysterious as ever. Forrest and Macready.?The newspapers, far and wide, are making comments and delivering long, moral and literary dissertations on the re' cent cards and speeches of Messrs. Forrest and Macready, blowing each other up and accusing each other of telling untruths. What a singular spectacle do the two great tra- j gedians of the age?one the star of the American drama, and the other ot the British?present to their cotemporaries, to the spirits of the past, including Garrick and his associates, if they still take an intere>t in mundane affairs, and to those also who may come after them and tread in their footsteps. They resemble two children of larger growth who have received more than their share of toys and caresses from fond parents, and who, getting to loggerheads about the spoils, display a most magnanimous contempt for puerile etiquette, and interchange those expressive and beautifully laconic courtesies, " Vou lie," " you lie," "you lie," "you lie." It seems, however, that these distinguished actors and silly men are not satisfied with tke notorious pronunclamtntot and cards which they have given to the world, but that Mr. Macready is going solemnly, and seriously, and with all the gravity of the tragic buskin, to commence an action a1 law, fer the purpose of ascertaining on which side is the truth and which the falsehood, in their con. flicting statements. A case of this kind, before any ol our courts 01 law, win yieiu a ncn nar- | ve?t to the lawyers, and much fun to the com. ; rri unity. It will exhibit the two greatest drama- I tifc-ts of the age in a light and position very little ' different lrom two "leafers" o< the Five Points, I who have been backed up by a couple of pettifoggers at one of our policc couris, in order to bring out all the |>eccadilloes ot which they can accuse cach other. If Mr. Macready had made no reply whatever to Mr. Forrest he would have stood in a higher point of public estimation than he now does, with his recent silly card hanging over his 1 shoulders. Alas! Alas! Macready and Forrest; and For- ! rest and Macready stand pretty much on the same level, and that level is not the highest niche on Mount Parna-sus, or any where in that neighbor hood. Whatever may be the ter iination ol this petty and paltry quarrel, which has for its source the envious rivalry ot the parties who are engaged in it, it may do some good as an example to the other respectable actors in the profession. We should not be surprised, however, il it produced | kuch an effect upon the public, on both sides of the Ailaiitic, aa to necessitate a cl.se of the career ot both these tragedians on the boards of Uiigland und America. 1 or California.?The second of Messrs. How lund A: Aspinwall's mail steamers, the Oregon goes to sea this morniug. Her destination is 3an Francisco, bi t sli?- will touch at Rio .Janeiro, Buenos Ayres, and Panama. The third vessel in this |ine leaves in the middle of January. The IT. S. Mail Steamer Northerner came in yetterday morning, from Charleston, with the great Southern mail. We have New Orleans pal*rc by her two days later than received by the r? gular laud mail. Naval Intki.uukn< k.?VV'e understand that the government has purchased ten acres ol land, with lour hundred feet of river Ironi, on the Mississippi, half a imle below the foundry, Algiers, oppojite New < )ileans, for the pur|>ose of constructing there" on a Navy Vurd. The property belonged to Mr. ixruiiiii, muU utc gitcM , Thk Iu^oal Bail Cask of Rccoruu Scott.? We give in our police intelligence, to-day, a very lull and authentic report of the facts in the history of the recent very extraordinary case of illegal bail, which was authorized by Recorder Scott, under the advice of counsel, one day lsstweek. It will be seen by tnis report, that, as soon as notice was called to tbe subject 111 the public journals, the If ecorder took occasion to make a statement of the circumstances under which he accepted bail and permitted the prisoners to escape?in a manner which, however, by no means justifies so high an officer as the Recorder, or takes away all blame from him in the ease, as it now stands. The judge of a high criminal court ought to have, to use an expressive but ordinary term, his law always "at his linger ends;" nor should he be under the necessity of taking legal advice, as well as a statement oi facts, from counsel, on any occasion. But certainly, one of the strangest things is, that Recorder Scott, at that particular juncture, should, under any circumstances, have torgotten the existence of the statute prescribing the legal proceedings in such cases; or that such an ltnpoitant and active principle of law should havs been obliterated by the eloquence of learned counsel, or any thing else, from the mind of so respected and independent a public functionary, as Recorder Scott claims to be. The Recorder, however, in giving an explanation, places the BtreBS of the policy, he pursued, on the advice of the, counsel engaged in the case. This counsel, it seems, is a person by the name ot Huff, and who appears to have ofliciated in this particular case, as legal adviser, not only of the two prisoners implicated, but also of his Honor the Recorder. Now, the question arises at once, whs is this Mr. Huff, and how did he exercise such extensive functions as legal adviser, not only to the persons arrested, but also to the Recorder himself, on the occasion of giving and taking illegal bail in this case 1 On enquiring into the history of Mr. Huff, we find that that distinguished man has made a great deal of noise in the world, on former occasions. His debut in life we have not ascertained; but his profession, for many years, was crier to the old Marine Court, in which Recorder Scott sat as one of the dispensers of justice. In that capacity, Mr. Hud' has made considerable noise, strictly according to law, giving notice to the lawyers that the court was opened, and threatening the boys and loafers with punishment, unless they would keep still and quiet. On the accession of Mr. Scott to the Recordership, by an appointment given to him through the influence of the late Governor Wright, and foi the purpose, it is said, of making John Van Buren Attorney General of the State, Mr. Huff transferred his talents and acquirements from the Marine Court to the Court of Sessions, where he was appointed to the respon. sible office of crier, which he filled with great honor and trust up to last winter. At that time he was admitted as a lawyer to practise in some of the courts, and, therefore, abandoned his highly res)>onsible position of crier, and of keeping the loafers and boys quiet, for that of picking up cases about the Tombs, and managing the affairs of clients. Among other curious specimens of his ]cgal learning and talent, we have the orignal of the following curious note addressed to a person namea, ana wnicn we copy, vcroattm et Utcratum : Mr D Croasman Sir A Claim has been placed in my band* against you for oolleotion you pleaee oall my office and slttla the came and ear* coat, my the office ia in Park with the A Recordtr (Reeordere office) Youra Uo * S P Hl/KF New York aprll 8th 1848 From this note, it will be perceived that Mr. Huff, the legal adviser of Recorder Scott in the case oi the Martins, pays no particular regard to the rules of Lindley Murray, either in Bpeiling, grammar, or in punctuation. This, then, is the distinguished counsel, the eminent lawyer, on whom Recorder Scott rested in the emergency described by our report, when the two dressmakers or waBher women were called up to give bail in the case in question. We do not think it is necessary to add a single word on the character of this case, on the conduct ol Recorder Scott, or on that of Mr. Huff, who appears to have been his principal legal adviser on the occasion. We art! extremely sorry for the Recorder. We have known him for nearly twentyfive years, and we have always esteemed him to be an honest, upright, intelligent and learned man. We think, however, that there were somp p*hihi. lions, during the recent election, which resulted in such a tremendous majority against Recorder Scott and in favor of Mr. Tallmadge, that will modify the opinion of any man in regard to the prehent Recorder. The j>eople are good judges of Recorders. We may, however, forget the violent and unprovoked attacks on the character of Mr, Tallmadge, nor pry^arrowly into their source, provided Recorder Scott will be particular to present this case ol illegal bail to the Grand Jury, side by side with the alleged illegal conduct of Sheriff Acker, of BlackwelPs Island, which took place a few days ago. We shall insist upon this course. Latkr from Havana.?We are in receipt of files of the (jucrta dt la Ilabana, up to the 21st instant. The items ol news are very scarce. The Italian Opera company were going on finely, and the greatest encomiums are lavished on the artists by the critics. Signor Marini, especially, is praised for his admirable siuaing in the opera ?f "Atila," and not only his singing, but also his acting, which they declare to be worthy of the great Talma Sonnets are composed and published en him in the papers; his likeness is to be found every wheie in Havana, and a memoir of his life is eagerly bought up. In fact, "El gran A/urini," as they term him, is making a tremendous sensation among the Kalianeros. Signor Vietti, Sra. Steflanoni, and Signor Pollonini, all of whom are well known in this city, are all spoken well oi by the critics. Arditi is said I to have created a perfect furore by his performance son the violoncello. We see that Mips Isulora Hanson, a young American lady (who, if we recollect right, gave a conceit at the Tabernacle in this city last winter,) is expected to arrive in Havana shortly; the article mentioning he states that she will probably give public concerts ; they speuk highly of her capabilities as a vocalist.

The Stkamer Crkscknx City arrived hence, a1 Havana, on Wednesday last. Bermuda?We have copies of the Royal (*& zettt and of the liermwiian, to the 18th inst. They give nothing worthy of notice. Another Tki.escopic Comet?A Telescopic Comet was discovered in the < onstellatlon Cygnus, on the evening of the 25 h tout ant, nt lid 30<n. i m. from tte Cambridge Observatory, by Mr. Uaorge P. Bond.

This will serve to determine, fr^m the perturbation which the Comet baa undergone, the nan of Maroury with greater accuracy than has yat been done. W. C. Bonn.

Benedetti is still sick, and the lovely Truffl still out of humrr. If the tenor don't reoover soon, and the prima donna continue in her present state, we suppose Signor Kry will soon set his musical critios upon both> through the columns of his pet journals. There is some talk of getting np three or four splendid fancy balli at the Opera House, to make up the de' lielenoies of the recent bad houses and mismanagement. One fanoy ball may cuoceed ; but they are too expensive for the ladles to extend tha number to four A lady's fancy dress will cost from $60 to $100, and sometimes $200, besides the price of tickets, whioh may be $10 each. Our fashionable sooiety cannot afford saoh high prices, particularly as there is no bankrupt law to get rid ef fashionable debts. If the fancy balls are got up, of course tbe famous Polka dancers that made their debut at Saratoga and Newport, last sum. mer, and produced inoh a sensation all round the world, will be on tbe floor to astonish the canaille..

Pabk Tiikatrb.?James Sheridan Knowles'plaj of " Love'i was again presented at the Park theatre last evening. Like most plays, this one has a prlnolpal character, which is the very soul of the pieoe. In i' Lot*," the part of the Countess is the principal one. and la performed by Mrs. Shaw in a style which may safely defy oompetition, and which is still worthy of emulation by all artistei in her line. .If we were to follow her through the play, from the first Interview

with Hnen, to the closing scene, we oould only qualify onr approval by comparing one passage with another. Good, better, and best, oonstitute the short list of adjectives which it would be neoessary to u?e?and it would be no easy task to place the last of these where it right! nil j belongs. The end of the third act claims high praise : the closing fifteen lines, oommenoing with " Bring Huon back,'' and ending with " Upon their lives, I charge them, bring blm back," as rendered by Mrs. Sbaw, is really a migntdoent performance, and in the energetic class to whloh it belongs can hardly be excelled even by the gifted aotress whose reading and aeting in it were so much admired by the Park audience last < renlng ; and vet it hardly surpasses, even in its own style, her reading and aeting la the interview between herself and the Kmpress, in the fifth aot, having for its olimax the line " lie shall not marry ! " I preceded and followed by the argument whloh intro duces and explains me exclamation. mese passage* are. beyond debate, excellent, and do not fail to bring down the house ; but it is not in these that Mra. Shaw's goniaa shines most brilliantly. She is all the actress need desire in these, bnt the power she wields, to enchant the fency and enchain the mind, is most effectively displayed in thoce finer touches, the more difBoult of aeoompltshment in the hlstrionio school, because they must be half reflected forth from the placid countenance and delivered no less by the organs of speech than by the eyes, as if they were made inter* pretera to the language of the tongue The first two acts abounds ip these i&stagea. The interrogation in the forest scene, act 2d? " Will there not be a storm ?" 1* of this class. A simple question, yet as questioned by her, transformed into a passage of beauty. " Dost thou know Thou speakest to me?" is another specimen of the same class, though perhaps not quite so perfect an illustration as tho first; but if we were to name the beauties of Mra. Shaw'a acting and reading In this part, it woald be necessary for us to commence at the first measure she reads, and go through to the last; for there is not one that la tamo; : not one but that is beautiful?thanks to the author ' for mvcb, and no leaa thanksfto the aotress. The subordinate parts wore well accomplished Mr. Clark as Huon, haa improved?ho played tbe part well last evening; Miss Mary Taylor's Catharine, was very prettily enacted, and in abort, the whole cast was well filled. The faioeof ' Doctor Dilworth" concluded the bill for the evening. Mra. Shaw is to appear tonight as Neighbor Constance, in ' The Love Chase " Bowcrt Theatric.?The houae waa well-filled again last evening, and tho elegant entertainmonta which gave such satisfaction on Monday evening, were repeated with much eclat. The new tragedy of-'Gene, vieve " haa proved very successful?Miaa Wemyss' personation of the proud and persecuted wife, is, indeed, a most admirable piece of acting. W. B Clarke's performance of the Count Hanault. is well done. Mr. Clark ia a most painstaking and judicious actor, and doea every thing he undertakes well. Mr. Wl nans, as tho would-be soldier, amuses the audience very much. He ia one of the best comic actors we have; his great fault is a tendency to overact his part, which it would be well for him to correct. Signora Clocca and Signor Neri appeared after the tragedy, in a most graceful dance. They have been warmly welcomed back to the Bowery, where their elegant danoing is very much admired. Tbe farce of the''House Dog," and the melo drama of-'The Flying Dutchman." concluded the eutertainmenta. To night, the bill will bo an excellent ono; it will consist of '-(ienevleve," tho beautiful ballot of the "Abduction of Nina," in whioh Signora | Ciocca, Signer Neri, Mr. G. W. Smith, and a first rate ballet company, will appear; and the drama of "The | Woodman's Hut." Broadway Theatre.?Tho celebrated domestic I tragedy of ' The Gamester," a play full of deep, moral Instruction, was performed last evening, at tho abovo theatre. Mr. Murdoch appeared as Mr. Beverly, and performed this great part with extraordinary precision, and that ability and talent for which he ia distinguished. Tho cast was excellent. Miss K. Wallack received great praise for her beautiful performance of Mrs. Beverly; Mrs. Abbott, as Charlotte, waa beautiful, as she always is. The ballet, ^hlch followed, displayed tbe wonderful address and beauty cf Mdlle. Celeste. In the faroe, Lester was excellent; Hsdsway, full of wit and humor; and as to Mrs. Watts, every tisoe she appears she earns fre?h laurels a? an accomplithed. elegant and highly talented actress.

National Theatric.?When this house la thinly attended, amusements in New York are but little patronized, one may be sure, aa we cannot remember the time when (since Chanfrau took the helm here) there ban been any falling off in the attendance there; night after night, rain or shine, hot or cold, it in all the same? the National is filled in every part by a inert intelligent and respectable audience. The present attraction is Mr Canfield, the American Hercules, whose feats of strength and agility are most I surprising; tbey are no mere sleight-of-hand tricks, but right down, bona fide exertions of muscular strength Mr. Can field preaeuts a most symmetrical appearance, and though of veey large proportions, is very graceful in his actions and tooTonent*. The drama in which he is performing, was written expressly to introduce hi* extraordinary feats, and ia, withal, a very Interesting one. The extravaganza of the "Invisible Prince,'' and the melo drama of the'-Spirit of the Waters," formed the remainder of the entertainments. Both are very favorite pieces, and always well received. We have, on previous occasions, noticed them fully; they were well played last evening To night. Mr. Canfield will perform again, and the rest of the entertainments will be very Interesting. Burton's Thiatse. -Last evening the performance commenced with the suooessful comedy oalled the 'Breach of Promise." This piece alone Is enough to draw a full and Intelligent audience. Mr. Burton, aa Kbeneier Sudden, an old baohelor, Is an exquisite piece of acting ; the rest of the performtra are extremely good Mlsa Chapman and Mrs. Vernon drew down renewed applause. The next piece was tha "Musical Arrivals,'' which la full of fun and fancy. The evenings entertainments concluded with " Tom and Jerry In America," in which Mr Burton takes the laughable character of James Hail Trolloppe Dickens Fuller (irran. on a tour of observation ; the whole of which went off with the usual eclat To night, the "Old K.Dglith (icDtleman," ''Musical Arrivals," and ' Tom atid Jerry in America," three excellent pieces, no doubt wili be greeted with a full and fashionable an dtenee.

Benefit or Deceased Firemen's Widows and Oafhanb ?It will be recolleoted that the benefit to the fund for the relief of tbe widows and orphans of deceased firemen, will come off this evening, at the brcadway Circus.

We pledge our musltal reputation for the correctness of ear views, and we have no doubt that the result will fully endorse our conviction or their Indisputable merits. Hkhz's Okkat Mciical Festival.?To-morrow evening this grand affair comes off; and from the list of distinguished names in the programme, both vooal and instrumental, there is little doubt but that the Tabernacle will display a brilliant assemblage of the beauty and fashion of the olty. Although the Italian Opera Company, under proper management, might be all-sufficient to attract a large audienoe. yet Mr Her* has also secured the service of Oung'l's Inimitable band, and will, himself, exeoute several new and beautiful compositions of his own. This being the last ooncert he will give this season, it Is expeoted tbe Tabernacle will be crowded at an early hour ; so we advise the securing of seats.

The programme contaius a great variety of beautiful pieoes, and, In the hands of this eiquieite band, we are oonvinced they will reoeive all the solentitle knowledge for which the Germanla, as a musical association, are so celebrated. Lenschow. the leader, has composed for the occasion a beautiful potpourri, descriptive of the performances at the various rilsces of amusement in this city. Madame Otto has, n the kindest manner, offered her services, and will sing a oavatlna and grand aria, which will be rendered with that sweetness of tone, purity of style, and pleasing expression, which have gained (or her. white performing at Pa mo> Opera House, the esteem of audiences who were delighted with her soft and melodious cadences. The Gertnania, then, present a very attractive bill, and we hope they will have a full house. Zoological Hall.?The exhibition here of rare birds and beasts, is well attended, both in the fore and afternoons, dally. The eleDbants. the ichneumon the black swans. ilger wolves, and the great variety of lion* and other animals, are pronounoed the finest speolmens of the kind ever before exhibited in this city. Van Amburgh b Co. hare shown muoh taste in the selection ol so rare an exhibition of the "wild tenants of the forest." New orlrim Skrexaders ?The elegant entertainments given by this talented band, are highly appreciated by the public, and the artistic manner in which they go through their songs, shows that they are no novices at the business. The high reputation they have made for themselves, in all parts of the Union, and also in Europe, will be Increased by their present performances.

Fiar.i in the Upper Part or the Citt.?There hare been many fires in the upper section of the city, of late, nearly all of whloh have proved very destructive from the Miiali number of engine* and hose carriages in that vicinity. That part of the city is rapidly improving, and the Corporation should have an eye to the safety of the property. There are several new companies formed, not one of whom has the necesstry aparatus for working at a fire. There is also a very meagre supply of water, especially in the Sixteenth ward. The people of that section have to bear their share of the taxes; and it is but right the ('orporatlon should devise means for the protection of their property. Foitbth Ward Citii*!??'

It is denied by the Texau that the United States aoqulred by the oonquest of Santa Fe any other civil authority there than the U.

It appears that the oompany, when in active operaHon. drew bills of exchange on the flrmof Palmers, Maokillop, Dent * Co., of London, to a large amount, which wore paid, without that house being in funds to do so. After meeting these bills for some time, the Banking Company was informed that thej must mat* remittances to make food their account, or their bill* would be protected. In accordance with this request, the Banking Company made an assignment of certain fecuritlos to Falmers, Mackillop, Dent fe. Co , to secure the debt at that time incurred. Tho bill was died by the receiver to set aside this assignment, and th* highest couit in the State has given its unanimous opinion that the assignment was legal, and Is binding upon the parties who made It What efleot this decision will have upon cases already deoided, and thosa still unsettled, is a question which many would l^ke disposed of.
