Affaire In Germany. 1 We give in our columns to-day a very interesting letter from Cologne, and also one from Berlin, ! detailing lucidly the present state of German | affairs?the relations of Germany with other European powers, and the probable result of the existing state of things. From what is taking place ' there and in other parts of Europe, we do not see how a general continental war can be easily ' avoided. The Recent Conflagrations. We have been called upon during the last week to record several most extensive and ruinous conflagrations. Watertown, in this State, has suffer- i ed severely. The flourishing, rapidly rising town i ofMilwawkie has also been visited by a similar i calamity. On the 7th instant there was a large t fire at Charleston; and on the first, at Racine, there s was a conflagration, which was large for the place, c and destroyed much property. Last of all, comes to L us the sad intelligence of the terrible fire at St. s Louis, by which almost all the business part of that c most flourishing city has been laid in ashes. p Twenfy-seven steamboat! destroyed, and five t millions worth of property given to the flames! No t one can help being most seriously affected by the < intelligence of these awful calamities, by which t many of our brethren and fellow-citizens have been 1 bereft of their property, and some of them, we are i pained to add, of their lives. Severe as the blow must be, there is yet some source of consolation. On all these occasions of serious disaster by fire, affecting populous cities and towns of our country, one result has signally exemplified the remnrkwhl* elastiritv and immense resources of such communities. "We allude, of course, to the rapidity with which the ruin wrought by the flames has been repaired. There are always, necessarily, many cases ol great individual loss; but the community itself does not seem to be retarded in its career of prosperity. New public buildings, and warehouses, and streets, appear on the site of those destroyed, with a degree of rapidity which is quite marvellous to those unacquainted with the moral and physical resources of our people. We all recollect the extent of the last great fire in this metropolis ; whole streets, on the morning of that memorable day, presented only a heap of smouldering ruins. Immense warehouses had been annihilated, with all their valuable contents ; hotels and pnvate dwellings were laid in the dust; property to the amount of many hundreds of thousands of dollars had been, in a few hours, reduced to ashes. In a few short months, almost every vestige of the calamitous conflagration had disappeared. New streets had been builtup, and many of those noble piles devoted to the jJTeat operations of commerce, which now ornameitr-cA^JUwe'juvt of our city, had been erected. Our sister city, Brooklyn, ii'mJij "on still so be styled, now that she has been almost merged into her coUossal neighbor, also presented, after the fire which laid so many of her stores and dwellings in ruins, a similar illustration of vigorous prosperity, in the industry and success with which she rebuilt the desolated quarter. And the same spectacle has been exhibited in all portions of the Union, under similar circumstances. Nor must we, in this connection, omit mention of the prompt and efficient manner in which the generous sympathies of the people of this ? country have responded to the call made upon ' them on these melancholy occasions. The most 11 substantial evidence has been given publicly f of the sincerity with which the communica- ' tions of our cities and towns have sympathized 1 with the sufferers in those oases; and it is par- ' ticularly worthy of notice that the commercial ! classes, who have been too often accused of being 1 selfish and mercenary, have, in these instances, 1 nobly vindicated themselves against such an aspersion, by their munificent donations. In private, ' and known only to heaven itself and the recipients, " there has been manifested a degree of benevolence u and charity, which has reflected infinite honor on those from whence the stream ol fraternal generopity proceeded. The frequent occurrence of these extensive and 0 destructive conflagrations should impress upon the ' municipal authorities ef our cities and towns the 1 absolute necetsitv nf? 0 ?? rV|^. BUM VlHVItU* W,6a?"' 1 zation of the j>olice and fire departments. In many of our cities and towns, particularly those in the West and .Southwest, a great many of the buildings of U. which they are composed have been built of wood. There is also reason to apprehend that there is often, on the part of the occupants of stores and dwellings, a culpable carelessne-s in guarding against the occurrence of a fire. If their Mores m and dwellings are insured, many persons do not b< maintain that vigilant precaution which is absolutely necessary to prevent the terrible calamity of a fire in a city or town. Again, the arrangements v for obtaining an adequate supply of water are n often defective in our cities. Springing up with il so rnsrvellous rapidity, it is not so much to be tl wondered at, perhaps, that in many of our towns a and cities the municipal regulations should be de- J fective We think that the occurrence of so many n destructive conflagrations about the pame period tl W ill pnaluce a salutary effect in this respect. >1 It is, indeed, quite singular, that so many exten- m Hive fires should occur almost simultaneously; and our readers will naturally enough recall the rem irk- ^ ?ble instances of the same melancholy coincidence t< which presented themselves in the year in which n' Our own city last suffered from an extensive conflagration?that conflagration out of which grew the famous question, 'Will saltpetre explode * \y> ** have not us yet been enabled to judge wheth-r any *>' or all of these recent conflagrations were the result of inccnd.uribm. No doubt a rigid investigation of will be instituted in each case It is said that the ]? in.-, lance companies of this city will not euff.-r to a uch, as they had but few risks at St. Louis, owg to the fact that the agencies in that city had re- ' iced the rates of premium so considerably, that i ic companies here would not insure to any extent i that point. Put anil, the destruction of so very rgo an amount of property, at St. Louts, cannot til to make itself felt, to a greater or less degre<\ 1 this centre and emporium of the national trade nd commerce. Very Important from California. We give, in another column, an important espatch from Washington, relative to California flairs. It appears that the action of the people of lie region adverse to the introduction of slave rbor, of which wc gave ot# readers information ome time since, has been fully confirmed; and it eenisalso that the repudiation of Governor Smith ias likewise been confirmed by the intelligence ust received at the seat of the general gvverninent. All along, we have predicted a very troublesome itate of affairs in California, in consequence of the iriminal conduct of Congress in refusing to organize a civil government in that distant region. 3ur feurs begin to be realized. ThoBe apprehensions of serious difficulty were not experienced by us alone, for all intelligent and sober minds in the country taw the danger* whioh mood threatening in the distunce. Both the parties, who consumed o much of the time of last Congress in unprofitlblo, needless, and inflammatory debate about the ntroduction, into the law organizing the territorial government, of an explicit negative, or admission of the right of slave-owners to procoed with their slaves to California, have incurred a fearful responsibility. We now behold that region, into which so muny thousands have been pouring, inspired by the lust of gold, abandoned, apparently, to disorder and anarchy. It is reported that the Secretary of War recommends the organization of a volunteer military, for the preservation of order and the support of Governor Smith. We do not believe that that measure is now practicable. Even had there been a regular organization of government in that region before the emigration commenced, it would have encountered serious difficulties. The lust of gold is a terrible leveller and anarchist; and the law of the strong arm and the seared conscience is likely to prevail, under the most favorable circumstances, in such a state of society as exists in California. But had there been u government organized, it would have afforded a rallying point for the welldisposed. As it is, we are now left to rely on the intelligence, patriotism, love of order, and, last not least, instinct of self-preservation, which may exist among the better classes of those who have sought fortune on the gold coast. We await, with intense anxiety, the next news from that quarter. The Cholera and the Streets.?It ts a matter of dispute among our medical men whether the deaths which occurred recently in the Sixth Ward n this city were caused by the real Asiatic :holera or not; some affirming that they were, and !ome that they were not. This diversity of >i>inion is not at all strange or uncommon. It will le recollected that one of our principal medical institutions, embracing a great portion of the medical talent of the city, held two sessions, for the rnrpose of arriving at some conclusion respecting he contagiousness or non-contagiousness of that lisease, and on each occasion they adjourned with)ut arriving at any definite result. At the last neeting, we believe, they contented themselves with passing a resolution to the effect that it was inexpedient to express any opinion on the subject, thus leaving the matter where it stood before they entered upon its investigation. Our own opinion is, that those deaths were caused by malignant cholera morbus, superinduced by the disgustingly filthy habits of the victims, and the horribly dirty and wretched abodes in which they lived. Indeed, no one, who has visited the scene of the disease, wonders at the breaking out of u malignant disease unong the people in that neighborhood. The only mrprise that can be manifested, is, that as the atncsphere of the whole vicinity is filled with poison>us exhalations, and the wretched inhabitants are mnk in poverty, degradation, drunkenness, and lie most abject wretchedness, how a human being :an live there at all, or wnat mysterious agency tas prevented yellow fever, cholera asphyxia, or ionic other dreadful disease, tr m devastating that icighborhood long before this One good result, however, will grow out of the ilarm caused by the report of the Asiatic cholera ueing among us, unfounded as it may be. We ire certain, according to present appearances, of having clean streets, and a purification of the dirtiest part of our city, before many days. Whether the cholera is here or not, we hope the authorities will cariy out the system of street cleaning which they have commenced. It is a Herculean task? as great, almost, as that of cleaning the Augean stables; but if our newly elected Mayor will put bis shoulder to the wheel, and act with as much energy in this as he has done in other respects, the work can be accomplished. If it were done?if we bad clean streets, especially in the lower wards, we might, with confidence, defy the cholera. We hope, therefore, that the authorities will lot relax their efforts, but that they will prosecute he good which they have commenced, until we liull be in a position to boast of, at least, having dean streets. The Catastrophe on the Hudson River.?We live in our columns, to-day, the latest and fullest larticulara that we could obtain, concerning the tccident which befell the steamer Empire, while >n her |iftssage to Albany, on Thursday evening ust. There is good reason to believe that the n-oral has been known, and, deplorable as the loss nf life has been, it is a matter of congratulation, [hat the rurnor of its being much greater?amountnsr, according to some reports, to one hundred?is mfoundcd. We have not heard that censure is cast upon any liirties?either those on board the steamer, or those >n board the schooner; but we trust that a rigid nd searching investigation will be made into the rhole matter, and that the severest punishment Hat the law provides will be visited on the parties, F any there are, by whose negligence this sad loss f life has been occasioned. We hope that the xamination now being made, will not be like inner ones of a similar character?a mere matter j ffoim?but that the whole subject will be probed to 1 ic bottom, and full justice done to the community, j here is a growing disposition in the public mind 1 i investigate all accidents of'this kind, and punish 1 lose whose negligence cuueed them. We do no t now whether there has been any negligence in J lis one, hut un investigation will do no harm. , Tint Search ok Sir John Fit are formed that Commanders Tatnall and Sands are >th volunteers for this arduous and interesting rvice. , It appears by our telegraphic despatch from ? iri shington, that Captain Wilkes is to have com- [ land <>t one of the ships. In a letter relative to f lie search for Sir John Franklin, Captain W. says ' lint time would not |tcrinit, this winter, to make j ny ellort in the Arctic Ocean in search of Sir J olin franklin, other than for the Navy L)epurt- \ icnt to despatch i^e of our.siiialler vessels from ' ic western coast of America to notify our whale j! lips thai |they should be on the look-out.

News from Puerto Rico.?We are in receipt of fik-B of the Holetin Mercantil to the 5th inst. We are indebted to Captain* Pole, of the brig Olivia Thompson, for these papers. On the 28th April, three men and one woman were executed by the "garote," at .St. Johns, for the murder of a woman whom they killed for the purpose of obtaining a sum of money they supposed she possessed. They did not get it, however; and were convicted and executed This is the first instance of the execution of a woman that ever occurred on the island. They are stated to have met their death firmly, especially the woman. A patent (for the term of five years) had been granted to Don Juan Ramos,for an invention of his, l.u urliirli lif ran make suear without leaving anv inolufses lrom the syrup. Capt. Pole states that he saw it in operation, and that it was very successful. The natives are very proud of this invention of their countryman. Sporting Intelligence.

Both the other mares are in splendid condition; and as the track is in superb order, very fast time may be confidently anticipated. The Cholera. Report of thf. Committee or tub Board or Health. ?At a meeting of the Sanitary Committee of the Board of Health, held at the Mayor's office, May 10,1849, Or. Geer, Resident Physician, reports that no oase of cholera has occurred within the limits of the city during the last forty-eight hours. The Sanitary Committee, in communicating the above to the publio, would assure their fellow citizens that every precautionary measure has been adopted to purify the city, and to prevent, if possible, tlio spread of disease. JAMES KELLY, ROBERT T. HAWKS, ALEXANDER H. SCHULTZ, CHARLES WEBB, >Commltte?. EDWIN D. MORGAN, ROBERT A. SANDS, JACOB F. OAKLEY. J SETH GEER, Resident Physician. (And signed by the members of the Medical Council.) The above is the first report made by the Board of Health, showing positively that no case of cholera had occurred within the limits of the city for forty-eight hours, but is not explicit with regard to any ease of real Asiatic cholera having occurred at all. It is the opinion of one of the most experienced physicians in the city, and one who attended severul hundred cases of cholera in 1832, that there has been no such disease in the city during this spring The disease supposed to be cholera was of a sporadic character, and the effect of the filthy condition of the house where it originated. From the first report, we were satisfied that it was a false alarm, and gave the reasons why; and the report of the Sanitary Committee goes very far in confirmation of those reasons. If the cholera had made its appearance, its source would have been very easily traced, and the means by which it was brought to the citv. Tin disease is a foreign one. and was never known in the country except when brought from some foreign port. True, doing the whole winter, it has made Its ravages at the South, and the West has been sorelv visited by it during the spring, but no case has been known east of Cincinnati. When the cholera made its appearance in 1832, it was not coufined to any particular locality, though in some of the more filthy and poverty stricken sections, it was more fatal than in others; but like every other epidemic, It embraced the whole extent of the city. The disease which ha* lately appeared, has been confined entirely to the locality where it originated, and none have been attacked except such as were given up to debauchery aud wallowing in filth. That fact ulone is sufficient to satisfy the most Incredulous, that no great danger was to be apprehended. Doit what It may. it seems now to hare disappeared. and it is to be hoped no further alarm of cholera will be raised until it really cornea, and not create excitement because a few of the miacrable dwellers on the Kire Points way die suddenly of rum. filth, and starration. City Intelligence. The Weather.?The weather contiuuea delightful, and the appearance of the thousands of ladiesj who promenaded Broadway yesterday, lent a beauty to the day. The sun was warm, but u gentle breeze from the south made the air pleasant and healthful. The evening was pleasant, and the night gave promise of a pleasant Sabbath day. which, should the signs truly prognosticate, will be the first cloar one of the month. Fire ?A fire broke out. about half-past eight o'clock, last night, in the fourth story of house, No 5? Pearl street, occupied by William C. Wade, as a crockery and china store, the upper portion of which was partially destroyed. The damage is supposed to be $4,000, which is covered by insurance. The damage to the house is probably $'4 000. The fire commuuicated to the house No. 01. occupied by A. Otis Jw. Co. as a drug store, the fourth und fifth stories of whicli were partially destroyed. The loss on the goods is said to be $2,000, and the same amount on the building, both of which were insured. It was not ascertained how the fire originated. A New Keeper for Blackwell's Iii.*xn.? An appointment was made, yesterday, by tho ten Governors, (or. we should say. by the six Governors, that being a majority of the board.) of a kee^r for Blackwell's Island; Mr. Joseph Kean being thus chosen, and. of course, the lucky man. as we understand that near forty applicants were, up to yesterday, each almost ceitain of receiving the appointment Mr. Kean Is conversant with the business, as he was keeper of the same place in 1844. It is rumored, also, that Mr Kdmonds. the present efficient keeper of the city prison, will be retained in office. Fatai.

NAMES OF THOSE SAVEO. &c. At. dir. At an early liour this morning, the hteamerSi. Nicholas, with the ueocasary barge* in tow, were despatched for tho Kmpire, and the necessary arrangements for raising the wreck will be at once begun. It in supposed by those engaged in the work, that about a week will suffice to raive her. No farther particular a* to the number of persons drowned, have yet transpired. Thus far. the bills ot freight which have been handed luto the office of the compauy, ainouut to about $5,000 ; but there is much more, of which they oan hare no account until the papers in the offlco of the boat are recovered. [From the Albany Atlas, May 18.] The steuuiboat Umpire, of Troy, left New York laat night at 6 o'clock, with about three hundred passengers on board. About 10 s'clock. when opposite Newburg, in Newburg Bay. she was struck by the schooner Noah Brown, of Troy, loaded with lumber, a little forward the forward gangway, with a tremendous crash, the bowsprit of the schooner, which was heavily laden, making a large breach under the guards, through which the water instantly rushed with great force, so that in ten minutes she went down. Many of the passengers had retired to their berths, and the soene that immediately ensued, as described by the passengers, was heartrending and terrible. The water was rushing through the cabin to the stern of the boat, and iu an instant almost, the cabin was completely filled Men and women, half dressed, rushed wildly on deck, and some plunged overboard. Wives were cllngiu*. to their husbands, and mothers clasping their children iu their arms and running to and fro in

a frenzy of terror. Fortunately, the Hip Van Winkle, Captain Sehuyler, (who has kindly furnished us with the particulars.) was but a short distance astern, and immediately came up alongside the Kmpiro to her relief. So rapid was the rush of water into the cabin that the Kmpire was fast sioklug. and there was a tremendous struggle among the passengers to get on board the Kip. The cabin was filled with water, and passeu gem wore seen below struggling to reach the deck. Uvery assistance was rendered, but it is feared several fierisbed. An alarm was given that several ladies were n the lower eabin. Axes and crowbars were set at work. The water rising so fast, drove the men from the ladies' suloon. and they were unable to save any mare lives. One lady that was rescued, stated that several more were below. A hole was then cut through the deck, and a ludy almost dead was resetted. She called loudly on her brothers?lour of whom were on board? but they could not be found. Boats with lights, from the shore, swarmed to the scene of destruction, and aided in picking up the passengers. A man was suun to jump from the Umpire on board the Hip Van Winkle, with two children in his arms. He lost his balance, and, struggling for his own life, lost the children. It was impossible to give anything like an idea of the awful terror, or of the number of lives lost. The Rip Yun Winkle remained alongside, her officers and orew doing all in their power to save the lives ot those on board ot the Umpire. Mr. Burden, of Troy, was picked up in the river, lloating on a box, almost exhausted. A number of others were saved, who were found floating on boxos and bales. The Umpire was towed ashore by tho Rip Van Winkle. where she was left, the water having reaped her state-room deck. The loss of life, it was feared, was great, as a large number of passengers had retired to their berths. The number lost it is impossible to state, at present, so conflicting are the reports. Some of the passengers place tbe number as high as 40, and others not more than 10. [Fiom the Albany Journal, May 18.] Wo are called upon, to-day, to chrenlclo a serious disaster, which took place on the Hudson river last night, and which, we fear, haB cost a serious loss or life. The steamboat Umpire, of Troy, when near Newburg. about teu o'clock, last night, came in collision with the N'cali Brown, of Troy, loaded with lumber. Tbe sobooner struck the Umpire forward of the wheelhouse, on the starboard side. So great was the concussion. that tho Umpire sunk, almost instantly, to her state-room deck. The officer of the boat immediately gave the alarm signal for relief, when the Rip Van Winkle came along side in less than Ave minutes after the concussion, and succeeded in saving the lives of many. About two hundred of the Umpire's passengers were taken off or nicked up by the officers and passengers on board the Kip Van Winkle. Capt. Schuyler, it is said by those who were on board vi me nip, aviou toruugu tuu waoie 01 ihih emergency with great cool nun* and discretion, and with great elfeet. A* noon u be came alongside, the offloera and men und';r his cnarge cut away openings to the saloon and the ladies' cabin; and while they were engaged in this, his auiall Louts were in service in picking up those who had jumped overboard. One lady was rescued by cutting an opening to the ladies' saloon through the top deck. She stated that there were several others in the saloon at the time, who, it is feared, have perished. Nothing was saved from on board of the boat; not even the list of passengers. The clerk barely escaped with the money he had taken during the evening. After the passengers had been taken off, and every thing done that could be, the Rip Van Winkle, together with the steamboat Hudson, towed her ashore on the k ishkill Hat, where they left her sunk to the height of her stoiui deck. We huve no definite account as to the number of persons who have perished by this sad disaster. A list of the passengers taken oil by the Kip was collected and given to thecuptain of the steuuboat Troy, while on her way to New York. The Kip Van Winkle afterwards landed at Newburg. where many of the passengers taken frem the Kmpire remained, some for the purpose of obtaining their baggage, and others, we regret to say, for the purpose of fiudiug their friends, whom they had not seen since the disaster. On the arilvul of the Kip alongside of the Kmpire, the scene is represented by those on board to have beea truly appalling. A large number of the persons saved were t-scutd with scarcely a rag of garment about them, while others escaped from the sinking vessel with but a piece or two under their arms. As soon as they reached the deck of the Rip, they were conveyed to the cabins, where everything that could be was done for tbem. for some, clothing was obtained, while others were wrapped in blankets. 1 he statements made by those on board of the Kmplre and Kip Van Winkle are conflicting We learn from those who were on board of the latter boat, that a vessel could be distinctly seen a mile off; while others, who were on the Kmpire, represent the evening as being dark, and that when the accident occurred the vessel was tucking. At the time the disaster occurred, the Rip was two miles astern of the Kinpire. She came up. passed and had got a mile from her before the signal of distress was given. When the Kip passed her the water was beiDg blown off the boilers, and Capt. Schuyler supposed thut some accident had befallen her engine, or that her boiler bad sprung a lenk. The moment the signal was heard, he rounded nnd came alongside, and rendered all the assistance in his power. The schooner was towed on the Mats with the Kmplre. and when the Rip left she w as still entangled with the boat. i_ epv ocnuyu r iiinueu sixty 01 me r.mpirc s passenger* Ht Newburg. and brought the same number to Ihlii city, with but little wearing apparel on. A large number were taken off the vessel. Mr. Burden, ot Troy, wa. picked up floating on a dry goods box, minus his hat. Many appalling scenes were depicted to us by those who assisted in rescuing the passengers from this illtated boat. In the ladles' cabin, n female cry was heard soon utter the ltip came alongside; the top corering was torn off. but before this was done it had ceased. Another passenger states that a woman, while in a frantic state of mind threw her infant child overboard, and was aft< rwards taken on board the Kip. w here she became rational for a moment, but realizing the Ion of her child, she fainted; but nfterwnrds recovered, and was landed at Ncwbtirg in almost a frantic state. [From the Albany Knickerbocker, May 19 ] A young lady, in making her escape from the cabin, < wading through the water up to her waist, discovered ] an inlant fl?at:ng on u mattress. She dropped her carpet bag. rescued the little innocent, and restored it to its mother's arms. 1 A poor Scotchman, who arrived in this country a day 1 i or two since, with his uncle and uunt and four shil- ] drcii. two ol them orphans, took passage on the Umpire | on J hur-dsy night, intending to go to < anandaigua, ' came up in the Kip Van Winkle yesterday morning, i Ills aunt and the two orphan children were drowned He was pi niiile". The Scotch society took carp of . him. The two children belonging to the drowned wo- . man were providid for by Mrs. Peter Smith. Their lather remained with the wreck, to recover the body of his wife.
