MA*???????? TH NO. 5405. PoKBivr and Macuady Aoain ?The letter written by Mr. Forrest, in reply to the last card of Mr. Macready, and which first appeared in a yi tsburgh paper, has been before our readers, and pnroaoiy perinea wnn mucn curiosity ana surprise by many of them. Ul the character of the last card or letter, emanating from the great American tragedian, every independent thinker will form his own opinion. To our mind, while this statement seems to prove satisfactorily that Mr. Macready must have resorted to special pleading to a degree almost amounting to prevarication, in his reply to Mr. Forreet, we cannot perceive that the tone and temper infused by Mr. Forrest into this letter, varies much in its censurable character from those of his first. All ol the allegations made against Mr. Forrest seem to be made out by the quotations furnished by Mr. Forrest; yet Mr. Forrest might have written that letter without exhibiting the bad temper, or using those hard and uugeutlemanly words, which every now and then break out, when he speaks of his rival and competitor m the theatrical line. There seems to be little doubt but that Mr. Macready exercised, in some degree, his influence in Loaden against Mr. Forrest; but there appears to be as itlle difficulty in thinking that Mr. Forrest is too sensitive, and allows himself to be worked up into a tempest of a passion at those rivalries which prevail among all men trying to reach the same eminent height. We doubt whether Mr. Forrest's dial# op hi* nniifinn hf*i'nn> th*? nuhlid*. g?*n he benefitted by his lust production. The wisest peliey for him to have pursued in all his relations with Mr. Macrtady, would have been not to pay any attention to those theatrical criucs in London, never alluded to the matter at all, and not allowed himself to be worked into a passion, but to pursue his own career in the developemeut of his own talent, caring nothing for what critics, or rivals, r foreigners, or natives, or auy other class of men, or even women, said, thought, wrote, or talked abont him. By pursuing such a high-minded course irom the beginning, Mr. Forrest would have had the public, on both sides of the Atlantic, in his favor, and would occupy at this time a much higher position as aa artist of great talent, and a man oi noble mind. His passionate card and special pleading letter, can only place htm on the same level with Mr. Macready before the public, and that is?a literary prizefighter in the columns of suffering newspapers. Some persons line Mr. Macready as an actor better than they do Mr. Forrest, and some preler Forrest to Macready; but who cares for the personal q oarrels or squabbles i either 1 By bringing such controversies before the public, they reduce themselves to the same level as that of the lamp lighters aud scene shifters et the drama, instead of occupying the dignified position of heroes and lofty minded artists. Or an a Manaqkmxnt in Havana and New Yobk.?It is stated in the newspapers that the manager of the Opera in Havana, during the last season, cleared an immense sum of money, amounting, according to some accounts, to sixty thousand dollars. Opera management in Havana is different to what it has been in New York for two or three years past. Mr. Fry, during the resent season, according to his own account, lost fourteen thousand dollars, and his predecessors, the year before, likewise lost a large sum. Now *a it not singular that the Opera is better managed in Havana?a city nothing like New York in magnificence?than it is in this g.eat metropolis, to which all the strangers that visit the New World resort, and where there is every facility of conducting such an establishment with vigor and success! We should like to know the secret history f Opera management iu Havana, in ordet to compare it with that of New Yoik A contrast and comparison might disclose some ot the defects in Opera management in Near York. It is very evident that some strange blunders and mistakes have been made in Opera management in this city, to produce such disastrous results as those which have taken place. We hope, however, that a day of refoim is approaching. Since Mr. Fry's season so abruptly terminated in a break down, we see that Mr. Max Maretzek is in the field, endeavoring (o reconstruct the Opera out of the old elements, but on a more popular and independent principle Thus far he has been tolerably successful. His trovpt is very good; and if the public can only forget the weak|and insolent attempts made during the Inst two years to form an exclusive clique of society which denies to the rest of the world, even respectability,we suppose that Mr. Maretzek's new movement may be more successful than some oi *he recent attempts have been. It is fair, however, that he and his troupt should have a chance oi unfolding their capacities, and we believe the public is sufficiently gifted with charity to let them have a chance. Opr Fobxion Missions.?We have some curious Accounts from our correspondents in Washington, disclosing the condition ol some ot our foreign missions in Europe. Some statements are published that one of our foreign Ministers has been engaged in the practice ot smuggling ; and others represent that several have got in debt in the capitals wheie they reside, to an extent far beyond their means. We have the particulars of all these unfortunate cases ; but, out ot regard to the parties* ana the character of our diplomatists, we hesitate about publishing such discreditable details. We hope, however, that those statements which have ?omr out, are not exaggerated for the purpose of Justifying a general sweep of foreign Ministers ana charge*, which hub urtrn urgra oy a numoe f applicants on the head ot the .State Department. Candidates to be selected tor foreign mission, should possess a character unimpeachable and honorable in every point ol via* ; and it persons oi an opposite description have been appointed by Mr. Polk, and still retain office abroad, the sooner hey are removed and come home, the better it wilt be tor the reputation of the United States in foreign countries.

It 1a one of those little operaa *hat are always anre to be popular with the many, as It haa a moat interesting and amusing atory. and a great deal of elegant musio interspersed through It The singing of Mlsa Taylor, who played the part of the pretty Pauline, was very mueh applauded. Miss T. possesses great merit as a vocalist, and aetrees also. Mrs Gilbert as Madame Marabout, the self-important milliner, played the part with her usual good taste. In a certain range of parts Mrs G. Is unequalled by any actress. Mr . Gilbert, as^the shy old one sailer, was also well suited to his part J Dunn sung the musio of hie character well,whl.'st Wlaans, as the raey Ac hi He Bonbon, gave rise to a vast deal of amusement. "Eagle Eye" came next: this piece has proved uncommonly sueeessfol. The cataiaot scene, occupying the whole or the stege of the Bowery (the largest stage in the Union), is always ippiaudeu meet vehemently. We have on several occasions el uded to the most remarkable features of this splendid equestrian drama ; we have now but to add that it ought to be seen by all. To-night tho seme bill will bo repeated. Bboadwav Thcatkc ?Laet evening, a moet hearty response was mada to the announcement that It was Mr. Collins' benefit. The house was ao crowded that there was not standing room; In faet. several pereons wtre obliged to go away, much dieappolnted The bill presented all that geod taete and sound judgment coold dictate 1 he play was the elegaat comedy of "Born to Good Luok, or an Irishman's Fortune," Collins doing the part of Pandean O'R-ff. rty. He seemed In high eptrlte, and. indeed it Is our opinion that be never played tble character better, with more snooesa, and with mora raiielaotion to hie audience. The courting scene was inimitable and bewttchiugly facetious His drees was superb, and his appaaranoe most commanding Ha now looked a different person from what ha was when he landed in Naples, with a torn ocat, whleh required a knowledge of uietbematios to get Into it; a pair of knees, and grey stockings. When asked by tha lady whom be Is courting, rbe Countess of Mullinger. if any of his relatives hau travelled, he replied that they bad and that great utteniien waa paid them, for they had travelled at tha expease of tha government, but that, latterly, more had been done tor them than they "dcaarved " The wit and point of this were duly eppreotated. as they called forth a burst ot applaur* from all tarts of the house He was most beertily encored in ble songs?the Widow Mahoney and the Lluucr of Lite Hi S>n?rS tha iv? w ., iu . - - - ? ?? in fine style, with Mica Calecta ; and ?ia deterred!; encored in it also. Mr Fredericks, aa the Marquis Manfredl. una dignified and -ffloient; and Mr Vache, aa Count Matfl. waa quite equal to hie position Ho invested It with a degree of in tare at wbioh did not fail of produo'ng ita cflret Mra labarwood aoatainad tbe character of tbe Cenntoaa Molinga with ease and trace. Tba domestic drama of * Grandfather Whitebead" followed; and we need not aa; that it waa moat enihusiaetloaU; reoeived. The acting of Mr H Plaelde waa a matter-piece To aa; an; thing further in In praiaa, would be both superfluous and abanrd. The remaining portion of the enttrtammonia of the even* ing went off in tbe moat creditable et;le Natiokal Theatxx.?There waa a ear; crowded home bore, laat craning, and the farce of'Whloh ia the Kingt" which waa pla;ed flrtt, wa* received with aa much favor aa on it* ilret production the other eve* ning.

We would etpeolaii; notlee tbe performances of the bear and monke;?tae latter particuleri;, in ' Mice." That monke; oertalnl; does hop about as ?pr; and active as an; veritable ourang enrang. To-night, the ever popular "Child ot the Regiment" will be pleved: as alto the farce of "Who's M; Husband?" ana, of ocurse, the two loeel pieces. There can be no more amnslag wa; of paaeiag tbe evening than to visit the National to-night. Bi'btor's Theatbc.?"

In this part, Mr Ra;mond appears to be unequalled. Mrs. Vernon and Miss Hill are excellent m tbelr res- 1 pwtlw parts. But tbe Inimitable Captain Cattle, represented b; Mr Button, brought from tbe delights^ eudienoe renewed applause Never was there a pleoe got up with to mueh effect, and tbe parte so well adapted to lbs respective actors aa the ebeve pieee at this theatre. It oau be seen over and over attain, and always with pleasure. Tbe new version of " Macbeth" Is a most laughable affair, aa the reader oan readtl; Imagine, as Lady Macbeth Is taken b; Mr. Barton.

We have received our (ilea of the M nttnr Hepub cano, from the city of Mexico, to the 27th ult., being three days later than previous advices. A paitizan ol .Santa Anna had pieaeuted a counter pn position, in a eecret session el Congress, to the one mentioned by us previously, which required ^ants Anna to make known the time and place of hia re-entering the republic. The document was retumed to its author for revision, being considered as couched in unparliamentary language. The Minister of War and Marine had issued a I circular to the army, in relation to the cholera, giving oidtra reepec ing the dress, beds, quarters, fcc , of the troops, and the usual advice with regaid to cleanliness, moderation in food, drink, and labor. On the 26th ult., the Governor of the Federal District, having received information that at several inns there were numbers of armed foreigners, ordered a register of them to be prepared, when it appeared ihey consist, d of one hundred and seventeen Americans, two women included, who p>e rnted their passports, a-gned by a Mexican consul in the United Mates. They declared heir obiect t<> be, to travel serosa the country to Mnxatlan. their ultimate destination ben g the gold regions of < aiilornia.

Ain?rleu Volunteers. The ship Genesee. Capt Watts, arrived yesterday from Sieal, with a detachment of 2250 mea of the American volunteer regiment, which has been disbanded. The tollowiug is a list of the officers who came with the detachment:? Majors MeDowall and MoHaary; Dr. Lamar. Rareoa.Dr Bouober, Aaalataat Burgeon; Captain* Kresnd, ToMa, Maoa and Maloy; Llauiaaanta collla, Loftna. ( rofta and MeCrsary. The disbanding ot this regiment, in the manner in which it was done, is disgraceful to the autneritics of Yucatan. The regimeut left this city under a solemn promise from Governor Barbuchano, that each private should be paid eight dollars a month, should receive a suit of clothes every three months, and. at the expiration of the term ot service, three hundred and twenty acres of land. The regiment was between three and four months in service. During that time, they naa several severe engagements witn tne Indians, and Irom Tekax to Tthosuco and Valladolid, drove the enemy betore them, uutil th?*y now have possession ot no position of importance, except Bacalar, near Belize, Honduras. The regiment was besieged eight days in Tihosuco, and during that time was reduced to such an extremity that officers or privates had nothing to eat but cats and dogs. lu the several engagements, the loss in killed was from sixty to seventy and Irom a hundred to a hundred and titty were wounded. Although continually suffering hardships, owing to the salubrity of the climate, but lew of the men fell by disease. After all this, the only requi al offered the men is the paltry sum of ten dollars each. Barbachano pleaded t? e poverty ol the treasury, and Colonel White finding there was no prospect ot tne stipulations entered into with the regiment being fulfilled, at once requested that it should De disbanded, which was acceded to. Cant. R. J. Kelly is the only officer, we understand, who remained. He was authorized to raiaa a company from the disbanded volunteers, and sufficient consented to remain to complete the company. We regret to learn that Lieutenant Campbell, of Capt. Kelly's company, and Lieut. Gallagher, who were wounded in the battle of the 25th December, died ol their wounds, the former on the 22d ot January. We are indebted to Captain Mace for files of the latest paiieta. The Bultttn Oficxal, of Mends, under date ot February 6, contains the preamble and resolutions adopted by a meeting of several ot the officers of Col. White's regiment, held at Valladolid on the 23d January. Dr. John J. Lamar was the president of the meeting, and Capt. Wm. 8 Read, secretary. It appears the mret.ag was called tu consequence of various repot ts alleged to have been put in circulation by some ol the officers ot the regiment, who had resigned, derogatory to the character of the American regiment of volunteers in Yucatan. The meeting resolved that all such reports were false and calumnious, and circulated by their authsrs for the purpose of concealing tneir own cowardice; that their confidence in their commander was ummpaued ; that since the arrival ot the American troops in Yucatan, no ........... -v. i i i ... .i apd no ineult or act ot discourtesy had been o lie red to the civil or military authorities of ihe country, and that all reports to the contrary Were malicious and untrue. The proceedings of this meeting are signed by Col. White, Cipt. Tobin, and other officers. The Buletin, ot the 23d of February, contains a card, signed by Dr. Lamar and Captain Read, mentioning the names of four officers, as being those alluded to in the ab >ve-mentioned resolutions. Then follows a certificate from Colonel White, stating that he is fully convinced ot the bravery and gallantry of Major Henry and Captains It. P. Mace and J. h'rerland, who were not intended to be alluded to by the aforesaid meeting. We also observe a letter from Dr. Lamar to Capt. Mace to the same purport. This is the only matter of interest we find in the papers We are also under much obligation to Cspt. Mace for the subjoined list of the wounded in the battle of the 25th December, the first complete list we have been able to lay our hands on. A number, it will be seen, died ot their wounds.?

Al about 10 o'clock this morning, the mass ot ice in the South Branch gave w?jr, carrying with it the bridge at Madison, at Ra ndolph, and Well# streets?in fact, sweeping off every bridge over the Chicago river, alao, many of the wharves. There wete in port 4 steamboats, 6 propellers, 24 brigs, 68 schooners, 2 sloops, ana 57 caaal boats ; most of which have been either totally destroyed or se nouaiy damaged The moviiig mass of ice, canal boats, propeller* and vessels, were stopped at the foot ot Clark at.; but withstood the pressure but a moment, crashing vessels and falling spars giving note of the ruin that was to follow. A short distance below, tha river was again darned, below Kmzie's waruhouse. Here the scene was most indescribable. Vessels, propellers end steamboats, were thrown together in the utmost confusion, forming a dam across the river, whicti backed the water to an unprecedented height. At this point, at ill A.

Should the North Branch get dammed up, of which there is tear, a large share ot them muat bo destroyed. We hear of several lives being lost A boy w as crushed to death at Randolph at. bridge ? a little girl was killed by the tailing ot a topmast. A number ol men are reported to have loar their lives on canal boats which have been sunk, and upon the ice and bridges as it brohe up. At the time ot writing, the water is rising last and the goods are being removed from the warehouses along the river. It is impossible to estimate the extent ol the injury which has been done. We tear the loss of lire has oeen much more than has been reported. We learn from Bridgeport that the budge over the lock is gone, and tnat about 1U0 feet of embankment on the aide of the feeder has been swept awav also. 1 o'clock P. M ? The water is still rising.

Bays:?The Teche ia now gradually risiug, and fiom accounts which we get trom the Mississippi, we conclude that something ot an overflow will take place soon in this section of the country. Such an event must prove most disastrous to our planters. The injured conditio i of much of the seed cane ot thia parish will have a bad effect upon the coming orop of cane, but an overflow is a diauatet ot a more unpleasant character, and much more to be dreaded. The water is said to be sluicing through a breach ot eleven tores in the levee at Point Coupee, and it adnata a tide of no otdiuaiy bize. We hope our pLnters may he spared the sacrifices which would be caused by an overflow, but at present the prospects appear rather gloomy. The M.
