New York, TlittrtilHy, .June 14, IM1V, Important News from Enrope. The news by ihe Cumbria, one week later than the accounts brought by the Kuropa, is now due over the wires, from St. John, N. 15. It cannot be rtherwiee than of an important character. Ply, lie nton on tlie tt 11 mot Prowlso?.aroat Cry but Little Wool. The party journals of the day in the Northern Ftates, whig and democratic, free soil and abolition, are making a great noise about the interminable speech which Mr. Benton recently delivered in Missouri, and look upon it as one of the richest discoveries, a perfect jiluccr in politics, that has been made for the last tit teen months, three days and fofty minutes. To the umuscmeut of those who can see us tar into a null-stone as others, we have seen Thurlow Weed, of Albany, and poet Bryant, of New York, so opposite in politics, so contradistinguished in affinities and tendencies, joining together in the same laudations, and making as great a clamor over Mr. Benton's late great, wonderful, terrible speech in Missouri, as if it were the discovery of a new diamond mine, or a gold placer, in the valley of the West, richer even than those of California. We tnean to show tnut what we say is perfectly correct, and that the wonderful speech of Mr. Benton is no wonder at all, hut merely a rehash f opinions, in reference to the Wilniot proviso and the California question, which have been again und again promulgated through the columns ?f tho Aeto York llcruld lor nearly a year past. Setting aside the violent personal attacks on John C. Calhoun, of South Carolina, to whom Mr. Benton devotes about two thirds of his speech, we come to the following paragraphs, which contain the whole gist, substunee, soul, and sense, of all that Mr. Benton has delivered in that interminable twenty colunuis of personality, violence, turgidity, ^ common sense, itnd absurdity, all mixed up together in one mtlungt. Here is the gist oi the matter:? ?????? And now wo arrive at substance?at a praotieal point. Congress lia; the constitutional power to abolish slavery in territories ; but she has no slave territory iu which to exercise the power. We have no territory but the remainder of Louisiana, north aud west of Missouri?that in California, New .Mexico, and Oregon ? andlhe north of Wisconsin, now Minnesota In Louisiana. north aud west of us. it was abolished by Conpress in 18110. In the territory north of Wisconsin. was abolished by the Jefferson proviso of 17b7. In Oregon it was abolished by Congress in 1848, by what you iuuy call the Ilenton proviso, If you please. In New Mexiuo aud California it was abolished by the Mexican government in l8JV-con?rined in 1837. and again in Thus, there is no slavery now in New Mexico and California; and consequently none lu nuy territory belonging to the I'nitid Slates, anl consequently nothing practical or real in thewhole slavery .iiiestion. for th-J pwplo of the United States toi|in?rrcl about. There li no slavery now by law in any territory ; and it cannot get there by law, except by uu uct of Congress. and no such act will be passed, or even asked for. The dogma of no power iu Congress to legislate upon slaTery in territoriea, kills lliat pretension. .No legal tahlishniiut <>t slavery iu t alitoruin and New .Mexico, is then to be looked for. Equallycertain is it that it will never be established iu eiturr of tlium in point ol tact. 'J he people o( both territories?the old inhabitants? are unanimously aguinst It. Of the new emigrant*, all those from Europe. Asia. Mexico,Central and South America, and all thotefront the non-slaw holding pait of tb* Tutted State*, will bo unanimously against it. There remains then, to overbalance all litis uuanimou* mass, only the emigrants from the elaveln Idtng part of the I uited Stale* ?iu itself, the smallest branch of tbe emigration, and it divided on the question?many going for the express purpose of getting rid of slavery ? and very low *o far in lore witli it us lu go that dislaucn for the pleasure ol having n law-suit with In* own negro, and with the certainly of coining out second best In the contest. 'J here ts. tbeu. no slavery, at this time, either ill New .Mexico or California, iu law or in fact; and never will be citln r in law ?r iu tjct. H hat, then, is ull the present uproar about? Abstraction! tbe abstract right ol doing what can not be done ?the insult to the sovereignty of the Mates, where thcie is no insult.'?all :tbsliactionand 110 loality, substance, or practice in it. '1 he ltotnnnahun a class ol disputes which they railed <fc lai.a leprina? that is to say about goat's wool; und uw tlie goal has Us wool, kin- dispute was about nothing. ISO it is of this dispute among us about excluding slavery from New Mexico and California There i* none there to exclude, and tho dispute now raging is r.bout nothing. Now, what does ull this amount to i Precisely to what we have again and again told the public, viz:?that the Wilmot proviso question was from iiti commencement u mere pretext, started by Mr. Van liuren, for the purpose of ruling and ruining the movement* of the democratic party during the last presidential election. That humbug of the t> iiiiK'i l>iui isu uu< umucii nw monocracy ot the North during the lute general election, uud defeated General ('.is*, is now adopted by ul! the Jiuiikera and the free toilers; and it uppcarr, too, by nine even in the slave Mutes, such in Mr. J J en ton Inmst K in Missouri. Poor C.i-s is n?w out of the vay; uud the free democracy having, by its noise on the Wilniot proviso, and the bl.tvery question generally, pushed the wings from their own ground, uud appropriated it to themselves, are now going to woik und uniting their various elements with oil the popular impul.-es of the free .States, to take ihc por.-e in uny future race that may bo run on the pieeidenlial lace course of the .Union. With regard to Mr. Benton himself, his motives ur.d purposes ure easily seen through, ihscoveruig .in the Mute of M;?aotiri u strong opjtosition anion j iiia own i*rty to his re-election to the United States J-ienule, Mr. Benton very adroitly makes n great luss nnd clamor against Mr. Calhoun, assails the lniprudenctt uud folly ot the Southern statesni in, assumes a new ground, apparently, to the rest of the country ; hut yet, while lie is throwing his tremendous speeclj to catch the whig party of Missouri to his support, he lets the cat out of tins bag, and acknowledges that the Wilniot proviso dispute is a Hit re humbug and never amounted to anything nt all. Yet lie expects, by tho clamor that he m ikes n the subject, to cutcli the votes of the whigs of Mireouri, and bo returned to the United Elates innate, and when that take* place, he \riJI resume hia own ground, and kick away the ladder wJiich iieljnd him to hib re-election, out of sight ever nfter. The whig jour nala of the North are playing into Mr. Kenton's hands in this matter. lie is merely stocking tiie democratic cards lor u new o? J, end the w hig leader*, hero and clsowhere, are t Proving li'is project and luxuriating over his action, a mi f he intended t<> help them in the difficulties which tin y will encounter?ditiicultifs arising the very movemcnta which Mr. Denton leu men-led wild |ii('inctcd in Missouri, and in othur f ijnti 9, whole toe democracy lire ciuinavorms: to unite their forc e, without reieience to die Wbuiot )>:ovifeo or any oilier proiiao. 'J he rife ct of Mr. iu ntxn'a movement among ticf.-e tiaici, will lheretoie u , to bring the two .cci.r ub of the di moi raiiy, the barnburners and id i t.u i.Uukclr, licit' and cn?cW naif, nut lUc old union. The Wilmot proviso quarrel has answered its purpose, and Mr. Benton now shows that no difference exists betw? en the two sections, and that they mary unite as soon ns their personal difficulties are settled in the several States, and terms of agreement made that will be satisfactory to each. The whigs themselves are aiding this movement, and especially are they assisting in the re-election of Mr. Benton to the Senate, in which place they will find hint just as sturdy ail antagonist us he has been for the last twenty-five yeura. The Grand. Jury and tiie Massacre on the Tenth or May.?The Grand Jury are now very busily engaged in investigating the uuhappy and lamented massacre which jteok place in front of the Astor Opera House, on the evening on the 10th of May last?a massacre which, by the folly of different cliques of society, in conjunction with the city authorities, grew out of a contemptible quarrel between two play-actors?a thing, perhaps, unprecedented in the history of theatrical atinaU, from the stage ofThespis, in Greece, to the present day. It is generally understood that all the secret evidence which was elicited in the investigation voluntarily conducted by Judge Ldmonds, has been placed before the Grand Jury, and in addition thereto, a number of persons have been subpcnnaed, who will give information necessary to the elucidation and illustration of that unhappy occurrence on that unfortunate evening. The first point which the Grand Jury should ex-" amine, is the riot, the actual riot, the breach of the peace, open and palpable, which was first committed on Monday night, or on the more lanientable:Thursduy in question. The rioters on Monday night are well known to the police, many of whom attended the theatre on the evening in question, but who, from some unexplained cause, took no means to Hrrest the breaches of the pence then committed. In faet, it is generally understood that the police sided with the rioters on that night, to a certain extent, and were us much in favor of the result us were any of the friends of Mr. Forrest, in this investigation must also be included the principal rioters on Thursday night, more especially those who committed breaches of the peace outside of the house, lly the evidence already given before the Coroner's jury and elsewhere, it is shown that there was but little disturbance in the inside of the theatre on Thursday night, and that what did occur was created principally by those who received tickets from the Macrendy committee, to go there and applaud. Several of those were arrested, and have been held in durance ever since. The conduct of those within the house who were thus arrested, was by no means as violent, or so injurious to the public peace, or so lamentable in its results, as that of the men who led the mob of boys and rowdies outside of the theatre. Several oi those rioters were arrested l>y tiie police, in the very act of instigating the boys to throw stones nnd break windows. It was those acts which, through the timidity nnd folly of the authorities, caused the lamentable effusion of blood which we have had to deplore ever since, in twenty-three persons killed and fifty-one wounded. Several of those rioters are known, grown-up men, und were caught in the very ac t of leading on the boys and rowdies, and instigating them to break the windows of the Opera House?the source und foundation of all the loss of life. This last clays of rioters, it will therefore be seen, were the principal and exciting cause of all the terrible effusion of blood that has disgraced the city, and which will remain a stain on its annals for years to come. We trust that lh# Grand Jury, in their investigation, will have discrimination, justice, nnd firmness, to indict those who will be found, according to the evidence, to huve been engaged in leading to this fatal effusion of blood. CoXSriRACV of WlIlO .lol r.VAI.IS'ri to Ovsr the Prksknt Cathxkt at understand that arrangements are making by certain journalists, connected with leading whig newspa -1._ a * l t j: prrs in me /muuuu uiucp, wiiu uitc i/ccu uiaujipointed in their applications for office, to unite their forces together, and in conjunction with disappointed and discontented whig politicians and journalists in the interior of the country, to come out against the present cabinet, previous to the next meeting of Congress, nnd have it completely ousted, whether General Taylor is willing or not. It is needless for us to enumerate the journalists of New York and other large cities who have been disappointed in their applications for office. They are well known to the public. One of the most prominent in this conspiracy, however, is the New York Exprtis, which takes great airs to itself, because its editor happened by accident to be elected a member of the next House of Representatives. This journal every other day contains epistles from Washington, and editorial articles, very bittsr towards sometimes one member and sometimes another member of the cabinet; but generally against the whole government at Washington. The removals and appointments furnish the ostensible ground of these attacks by whig journals, in common with the democratic organs, who, of course, assume the same tactics. We have long doubted the capacity of the whigs for government, and from the symptoms nowcxhihiting themselves, we are inclined to believe that they will not be able to retain power for any length of time. If the present cabinet were ejected to-morrow, that which would succeed it would be equally obnoxious in a very few months, for no cabinet can satisfy the cliques of the whig party. General Taylor himself possesses great popularity; but the party which has gone into power with liiui appears to be altogether destitute of the tact, common sense, and sagacity necessary for continuance in power. The whigs are all leaders, every one seeking to be made a foreign minister at least, or the head of a department, the rank and file being wholly wanting. Jhsjtor Doam; at tut: Com kssionai,.?We give, in another pan of this day's paper, a curious statement, or disclosure, or confession, which has just been published by his Eminence, Bishop JDoane himself, touching his debts and delinquencies. It is a vciy penitent paper, nnd creditable to the good heart and better feelings of the pious Bishop He has been a great sinner in matters of business?in multiplication, addition, and subtraction, mi ' particularly in the rule of squaring accounts. lie approaches the confessional with downcast eyes, and li nils in einntv breeches Dockets?lie ruin fesses his sins?h? asks forgiveness; and as one of I lie pood fathers of the only recognised church in these latter days, wc beer leave to pronounce forgiveness on Ins transgressions. Wc must intlict upon the repentant Bishop, however, according to the canons, as n j>enance for his sins, the task of reading over, every morning nnd evening, for six months to come, the laws of New Jersey, for the c< llcction of small debts due to butchers, bakers, and confectioners. That's all. Let all beware how tlicy say hard things of Bishop Doane hereafter and a day. i com Camfornia.?We expect every day, by the steamer from Chagres, late news from California, with full and ample correspondence from many of the persons who went there among the fiist emigrants, and probably some letters from our original rnrrespondents, in addition. This journal was the first that had regular correspondence from California, long before it became a part of the United .States. The gentleman who volunteered this correspondence several years ago, is one of the largest property holders there, and was the first to visit the mines after their diacovery, and gave us not only a full account of the wonderful placers, hut sent us the first specimen of California gold ever seen in Wall street, or in this city. The ace) nuts which we expect by the next steamer will he v>ry interesting in every point of view. Saiuno of tiie Srs:oi.ship Niagara.?'The steamship iNiiicurn, C'apt. Hyrie, sailed yesterday noon for Halifax and Liverpool. She carried oul one bundled uud eleven passengers. Tli* Military and Financial Resource* of the Four Great European Powers?Russia* Austria, Prustla, and France* In view of the great approaching crusade of despotism against republicanism, on the continent of Europe, we have prepnred an interesting synopsis of the military and financial resources of the four great powers which stand out in high relief us likely to he the chiel actors in the great drama about to be pluyed. 8ome idea may be formed, from a view of these tables, of the imtrn nse resources of the despots ; und it will be seen at what a fearful odds republican France will have to meet such a terrible und powriful foe. We spoke, in a foimer artic le of our journal, of the duty of republican America in th s impending crisis; and we are glad to see symptoms of fueling umong the people, and the beginning of a movement which we trust to see spread through the Union. Nothing, perhaps, is better calculated to cull the mind to a serious consideration and just appreciation of the terrible struggle now about to begin in Europe, than a view of the subjoined tables and statistics. One can scarcely refrain from shudder, tng at the reflection that Russia, Austria, and Pius mh, ciin, ana proDuuty win, 11 necessary, bring nearly eighteen hundred thousand men into the Held to crush Hungary, und then put down all (lie little republics of Germany, and, lastly, the grea1 republic of Fiance. What nation or people, singly, can stand against such a confederacy ? We think the crisis is great and imminent; we therefoiv publish the following important statistics, by way of sounding the tocsin in America, in order that the friends of the freedom of mankind,throughout the world, may learn und he aware that freedom is now threatened more fatally than ever was known in the annals of the world:? Till'. MILITARY TORCH OF RUSSIA. The R ussian army is composed as follows:? The Kiupcror's Koot (Juards 30 000 Sappers H.O'-M (ininiilicrs 48 000 Julanlry 233 Olll) Total 080 two The cavalry constituting tlm Imperial Ouard consists of 400 squadron of horsemen, the whole number making 70,720 Total of the Imperial Guard 40i,720 The Euro] win Army of Reserve. Imperial Guards 1200 (Irniadiur Corps 21.000 Inlantry of reserve 144.000 2 battalions of Sappers 2,000 Total 182,000 Cavalry squadrons attached to the same aruiy are estimated at 17.020 Total Infantry anil Cavulry 191) DJi) Thus the whole military force of Russia in llurope, consisting as above of the regular army and the Imperial Guard, constitute together a puwer of men, which is equal to more than twelve large armies, of 50,000 men each, well supplied with cannon nnd artillery. Added to this, Russia has a large nriny in Ciucasus, emounting to 150,107. She has also hordes of Cossacks in the plains of Asia, ready and eager to serve, which are not estimated in the above, but whose number, it is estimated, does not fall far short of800,000. tui: mii.itaky force or austria Is constituted as follows:? The Grand Stuff 72S Impcilul Guards . ... (Uiti Infantry 314.912 Cavalry 4H 842 Artillery 25.075 Constituting, In time of peace, a military fvrcn 1(11 (111 In time of war tliia force is nearly doubled, when Austria can command a military force amounting to ubout 500,000. run MILITARY FOROB OF PRUSSIA Is constituted as follows:? The liojal Uuard, consisting of infantry 11,202 The Lis* 03,3=14 Cavalry, (the Hoyal iiuard) 3.704 The Line 111,300 Artillery 16 631 Corps of Engineers 2,644 Total 115,005 Lnndwehr of the Kirst Ban SI,041 Laudwchr of the Second Ban....... 62.61)3 Total 143.05a The above is only lhe peace establishment of the Prussian military forces. It is here seen that Prusbin, in time of peace, has at her dt?|>osal a military force of 259,561. The whole army, when placed on the war footing, amounts to Troops of the Line 205.000 Laudwehr 130,000 Total 335,000 The Luiidwchr of the Second Ban consists of those who are destined, in time of war, to garrison the fortresses, and is composed of men from 25 to .39 years old. The Lnndwehr of the Second Ban is composed of young men from 20 to 25 years old> called into actual service. MILITARY FORCE OF FRARCE. The French army, on the peace establishment, is composed as follows:? Tim Staff 3,652 Infantry 173,886 I uvHlry 52,800 Artillery 2?.'>00 Knclnwrr 6,SIK) tifiidurmeg 19.500 Veteran* 4.000 Troop* of the Administration 2.900 Native Corps ill Africa 8.380 Cavalry in Africa 3.075 Total 300,143 Thus it will be seen that, in time of peace, the military establishment of France amounts to n force of.100,000 men. This is an immense force; but this docs not include one half of the military power of France. These are all troops of the lintf. The National Guards, exceeding the line in number, by at least a hundred thousand, constitute a truly formidable force, ever ready and equipped, and capable of being called into actual service in twenty-four hours. It is not possible to estimate, with any precision, the military force of France in time of war, because much depends upon the nature of the war. If it were a national war, and the people fought /ro aril tt focit, under the direction of an energetic government, ns in the time of the first revolution, France rould send into the field armies amounting to at least five or six millions of citi/en soldiers. To conquer this bruve people and put down (he republic, nothing can succeed hut intrigue, treachery, und deceit, such as are being now practised upon tlicm by Odilloix Barrot, Leon Faucher, Marshal Btigcaud, and others, under the name and auspieCB of Louis Napoleon. t1ie financial resources op tim fottr great towers?russia, austria, trussia and prance. We have given a view of the military force of each of theBe great powers; and as revenue nnd money arc the sinews of war, some account of their financial resources may be necessary to complete the picture. RUSSIA. Much mystery hangs over the financial department of the Russian government. The revenue of Russia in one year was 121,614,201 ecus de Pr. Reduced into dollars, Russia may be said to raise annuully, for the public service, one hundred and twenty-five millions of dollars. Russia possesses productive gold mines, nnd it is believed the Einperor has been hoarding, for twenty years past, many millions of specie unnually. ller revenues nnd resources may he said to be inappreciable. f-hc has lately loaned immense sums to other European powers, by way of buying up portions of their public debt, not knowing how better to employ her own immense surplus revenue. AUSTRIA. The revenue of Austria in one year, (MM7), was 152/tOO,(XX) (lorinH. This was derived from direct and Indirect taxation, land tax, salt and tobacco monopoly, A'.e. Reduced into dollnra, Austria may be said to i raise annually, for the public Bervice, about seventy-six millions of (lobars. pruiiia. The revenue of Prussia, in one year (Mil), was 57,677,191 dialers. Rcductd Lute dollars, Prussia may be said to be ' capable of raiting, annually, an income of forty millions of dollar*. This sum, though less in sound than the Income of France or Knglund, is considerably more in fact, Prussia having very little, if anything, to pay for the interest of a debt rn**rk. The revenue of France in one year, (1S17), was ],357,3<lb',32S francs. This was derived from direct and judicial taxation, ths customs, lands, and all the other usual sources of national income. Reduced into dollars, France may be said to be able to raise annually, for the public service, something beyond the sum of two hundred and seventyone millions of dollars. This would be a noble revenue, were it not that the best part of it has to go to pay the interest of a large national debt. Such are the general average incomes of these great powers. No doubt, however, their resources are greater than what is here estimated, and that, under a wise administration of government, their revenues might he considerably increased. Tiik New Code op Lboal Practice.?The beauties of the new code of legal practice, which has been so much cried up 'y certain philosophers. begin lo exhibit themselves 111 dollars and cents about these days. This new code wus intended to simplify practice, and reduce the expense of litigation ; and that it would do so, the credulous people

believed. Now, they begin to discover their folly. The agreeable business of litigation will be now rendered at least fifty or sixty per cent more expensive than it was under the old practice. Let us state one fact. The expense of a counter statement in an action at law is increased ten times over what it formerly has been. In one case that we have heard of, the plea of justification or explanation was extended to over four hundred pages of toolscup, the cost of copying alone being ten dollars?all of which, under the former practice, might liuve been given in a few lines, under the usual reply of general issue, adding, perhaps, a page or two by way of special explanation. A greater piece of duping and humbug than this new code of practice, has never been indicted upon a credulous and ignorant community. Major General Gaines?It will be seen, by reference to the proceedings of th? Board of Aide men, that a resolution was adopted last evening, requesting the owners and masters of ships in this port, to raise their dags half-mast high today, to the memory of the late Major General Gaines. From Nassau, N. P.? We have received our files of the Royal Gazette und the Bahama Herald, published at Nassau, N. P., to the 1st inst. They contain no news. uoinmon i/Uinirii. Boaiid op Alukiimkm.?Last evening, the Board of Aldcimeu met, pursuant to adjournment; Alderman Kelly. President of the Hoard, iu the chair. A petition, presented by the Alderman of tho Sixteenth, changing the designations of tho Avenues from numbers to names, such us "Oregon avenue," 'California avenue," "Sacramento avenue," itc., was referred to the Committee on Streets. A communication from Dr. Chubert the Fire King, stating that the present disease now prevailing is not tho Asa'ic th"lcra. but a souiewhatsimilardiHtcmper; and that lie was in possession of a recipe which would prove an unfailing remedy?was referred to tho Committee on CbariU and Alms, Dr. Chabert oflered to dispose of the same for a rcasellable compensation.

Resolved, That it is the opinion of this Board that ' the course adopted by the ten governors, in abolishing the out door relief usually allowed by the Almshouse to the old or indigent poor of this city, is impolitio, uncharitable, and discountenanced by the tax-payers of this city, and that the order made by said governors ought to be altered or modified. 1 ha following resolution was adopted, on motion of Alderman Kelly:? Resolved, That H. W. Childs, F.sq., Superintendent of streets and lamps, be. aad is hereby, requested and directed to report to this board, the amount of moneys paid for cleaning streets in the Sixth ward, together with the amouat paid to the dirt cartmen and others, who may have received money as laborers In said ward; and also the names of the persons who have certified by oath to the correctness of bills presented for cleaning streets in said ward, and whether or not tbe legal Street Inspector has sworn te and certified the correctness of said amounts of moneys used in the Sixth ward. I'pon the motion of Alderman Jamison, it was resolved that the Commissioner of llupairs and Supplies be requested to have Cedar street, between Broadway and Nassau street repaired forthwith, at the expense of the sewer contractor in said street. Hf>Rn)vi>il. That tin* ?unki*n lata nn Vlnth Tenth streets, between timurN B and C, be filled in, under the direction of the Street Commissioner. Upon tbe motion of Alderman Franklin, it wan resolved that thu Superintendent of Repair* to Public Buildings, under the supervision of tbe Commissioner of Repairs and Supplies. bo and he is hereby directed to cause tbe necessary alterations to be made to the house of Hose Company No. 1(1, situated at the junction of Houston and First streets, in order to alford said company the means of drying their hose; and that the sum of $300 be, and the same is hereby appropriated to pay the cost thereof. The follewiDg resolution wan adopted on the motion of Alderman Allen:?Whereas the Mayor, Aldermen and Commonalty of the city and county af New York, did, on the eighth day of May, 1848, enter into a certain contract with the Manhattan Gas Company, for the better lighting of all that part of the city north of Grand street; and whereas great and important benefits have grown out of said contract to the community in the upper part of the city; and whereas, under the present contract with the New \ ork Gas Company, all that part cf the city, lying south of Graud street, is, as compared with the northerly side, in total darkness; and whereas, as it is derirous for mere and better light in the lower wards,?Therefore jiosoiveu, i hat it be rcrerred to the committee on I.ampe and Cat, to inquire and report to this board, at its next regular meeting, upon what terms a oontract can be entered into with the New York lias Company, embracing all the provisions in the contract made by and between the city and the Manhattan lias Company for the benefit and improvement and the better lighting of all that part of the city lying south of (I rand etroot, in the city of New York. It was resolved, in consequence of the (Irand Jury presenting as nuisances deleterious to health, the street manure depots on the North and Hast rivers, that a committee of three be appointed to confer with the presidents of the railroads to remove the manure in future. The following resolution was adopted on the motiop of Alderman Morgans:? "Whereas, sineo the last meeting of this Board, information has been received that a distinguished citisen and high military officer has suddenly deceased in a distant city of thisl.'nlon; and whereas it has been usual, on similar occasions, to pay a passing tribute to the memory of persons who have either rendered important services to their country, or have held distinguished civil or military positions in the government of the L'nlon. and especially of such as by their virtues and acknowledged exemplary morul character, are deservedly esteemed; and whereas, among such, the name of Major General Kdmuud P.

In William street Hospital 8 3 1 In pi irate practice 31 8 ? Total 44 14 "I There is ono feature in tlio returns of the last few days that cannot fall to strike the attentive reader?it is the paucity of patients discharged cured. Tho deaths subtracted from the case* for a few days, ought to show the remainder discharged cured; yet this is not the case. What becomes of those who neither dio nor are discharged cured ? Surely cholera is not so tedious a disease that the patients remain under it for more than two or three days, unless in some exceptional cesos. In the Ccntro street Hospital colTins arc piled up in the recesses at the head of tho stairs. Is this prudent, when fear is so well known to be an exciting cause, and Las a fatal tendency to depress tbo system, after the patient is seized with tho disease? A few days ago, a ' hearty, brawny man, a blacksmith, who had been affected with slight laxity of the bowels, was induced to go to this hospital, lie was told to lie down; and in i threo days, from the combined ejects of tho terror of coffins, and want of heat, he was a dead man. Instead of being kept warm, the patients, wo are informed, are Buffered to He without clothing.
