CASTLE 8ARDF.N?PaoMa?*ni Car?o*RT. Net* York, Monday, June !13, IH4U, The Atlnntlc unit tlie Panama Koutr, &c, For a great number of years past, the necessity ot forming u communication between the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans, iias been much discussed and commented upon by the politicians, statesmen and journalists of almost every nution in the world. All admitted the feasibility of constructing such a wotk, and the advantages which the annually increasing commerce of r lie world would derive from it; but from u variety of causes, the project, ulthougli universally admitted to be attainable, fell through, after the preliminary surveys and other preparations had been undertaken, bights and privileges liuvc been several tinx s granted by the .South American governments which possessed within their territory suitable routes, and also by the Mexican government; but thev have been forfeited by non lunge and lion-accHpiitrice with the terms upon which they were granted. The acquisition by ttie United States of un immense tract of territory on the Pacific side of the American continent, growing out of the war with Mexico, and the transfer of the bay and harbor of San Francisco, one of ihefine.-t, most spacious and suit st in the world, re-opened the discussion which had been teinpotarily suspended, and otVeredto the characteristic enterprise of the American people a wide nnd exclusive field for its developenient, on a magnificent scale, and with unbounded advantages within its easy grasp. The benefits of certain rcuteb lit m some convenient point on the Mississippi to Sun Francisco, across oar own territory, as an individual enterprise, and as one to be either undertaken by the government of the United States directly, or by individuals for grants of land along line, from the Congress of the United States?a line from a point in Texas via the Rio Grande to California? the Nicaragua, the Tehuantcpec und other route.-, weredtscussed and advocated, and the advantages and disadvantages of each set forth particularly und minutely, by its respective friends and admirers, until the subject was exhausted. The consideration of this important matter occupied, alio, the attention of the late administration; for it is well known that Mr. Buchanan, Secretary of State under the lute ex-President Polk, instructed the American Commissioner to Mexico to negotiate, on the purt of the United States, for the cession of theTehuantejiec route; and, from information which we have recently Received from an authentic source, wus directed to oiler to that go .u cr. :ii: ?i a?iu?.. i?_ veriuiiciu lurnum ui intern iiiiuiuiis ui uuuaio ivi the desired privileges, which were denied. In the meantime, und while the subject was being is -utsed in all its points and bearings in the United States, some enterprising merchants in the city of New York, who have for a number of years past been largely engaged in the Pacific trade, obtained a very favorable grant from the government of New Granada, of the route across the Isthmus of Panama. Airangementa for a survey were immediately made, ami fulfilled in a very satisfactory manner. The result is most encouraging, and the woik will be commenced immediately. It is not necessary, it appears, to have more than twenty miles of railroad, viz. from Gorgona to Panama; the remaining distance between Gorgona and Chagres to be traversed on the Ghagres river, which, it is ascertained, is navigable to that extent, and for which a steamboat of iron is being built in Philadelphia. It is estimated that the cost of the whole woik will not exceed one million of dollars; and so great is the confidence which the proprietors of the grant from tiie New Granadtau government have in the work, that they have determined to take for themselves nine hundred thousand dollars worth of stock, leaving but the remaining one hundred thousand dollars tobe subscribed for by others. The books of subscription will be opened on Tuesday next, and \\ id be closed at thiec o'clock on the same day. Hiort as the time will he, we ftave no doubt that the sum will be contributed. The expectation, founded on the reports ol the survey, is, that thu railroad portion ot the woik will be completed in one year, so that we will probably have 5 steam communication, by laud and water, between New York und San Francisco, and also with China, in about twelve months from this time. The advantages w hich such facilities will furnish to commerce, us well as to travellers, have been so fully and frequently ?'/lated upon, thut it is unnecessary to repeat them at this time. We have good reasons for stating, that the administration at Washington view this subject with a greut deal of interest. They are of opinion that the time lias arrived when we bhould t 1^' udvuntage of the benefits of our geographical position, and become the carriers of the commerce of the world. Yet the project of building a railroad across of our own territory is not entertained with much favor by General Taylor or any of his cabinet. They are under the impression that it is altogether Utopian, for the present. The projectors, therefore, we think, need not rx|>ect much encouragement from that quaitcr. On ihe other hand, it will the duty of the American government to secure, jf possible, the exclusive control of .ill the oilier routes which are practicable, viz. via Nicaragua and Tehuantepec. We believe that they are sensible of this, and will favor the acquisition of those routes to the extent of their ahihry. The "Peace Society"?WherkisitI?Weused to hear a great deal about the "Peace Society;" what has become of itl Learned blacksmiths, intellectual cobblers, and philosophers of all sorts, colors, shapes, sizes, and conditions, from Massa Greeley down to Lhenez* r Snow, were moving Exeter Hall and the Tabernacle, not to mention heaven and earth, about this "Peace Society." What litis become of it! The Hungarians have fought a few bnttlc*; where is the "Peace Society!" The Austrian* have overrun Lombard/; where is the "lVace Society !" Milan has been nicked; where is the "Peace Society!" Rossi has been assassinated; where is (he "Peace Society!" The Romans have licked the French tit the-gates ol the Lternal < ity; where is the "Peace .^oeifcty!" War blows its irum iet in every nation of Lurope; where is tlie "Peace Socitty!"

Caaaiiiaii Affairs?What abb thkt aijoot 1 ?The British Government have announced their views with regard to Canadian affairs. They are determined to enforce their policy. Lord Elgin's conduct {pis ocen approved, and the Ci* nudiuns are told to behave themselves and keep perfectly cool.

They had some of the old Anglo-Saxon blood in their veins, Hnd tliey were not satisfied w-ith mere denunciations, however eloquent.

Ai?h! we lear tliat the climate of Canada is not propitious for patriotism?at least for the kind of patriotism which made the American colonies free and independent. Wo do not dispute the aduptution of the Canadian soil for the cultivation of that sort oi patriotism which makes itself heard at every Btreet corner, and in every barroom ; but we do doubt whether it is fitted for the growth of that energetic nnil practical love ot freedom, which can never rest contented till it breathe the atmosphere of liberty, and has removed every vestige ol the oppressor's power. At all events, we shall soon see through and through, inside and out, the sort of Anglo-Saxon race which occupies the Cunudus. Watering Places and the Fashionable Ska son.? The fashionuble watering places begin to fill up rapidly. We gave, in our journal of yesterday, several letters from attaches of this establishment, who were despatched, some days since, to furnish our readers with graphic descriptions of these agreeable places of resort for the beauty, elegance, refinement and intellect of our great, hot, dusty, crowded cities. American watering-places are a very interesting subject of study. They bring out sundry salient points of our social manners, in such a way as cannot fail at once to amuse and instruct the philosophic observer. In the first place, there is such a delightfully diversified assortment of human character, original, state, piquant, natural, affected, grave, gay, lively and severe, that you cannot help finding never-fuiling sources of psychological pleasure. During the present season, the wateringplaces will be unusually gay und attractive. A number of the California miUionaires, who have just returned, with tons of gold dust, will make their dibvt at Saratoga, Newport, Fort Hamilton, and the Virginia Springs. A new feature will thus be added to fashionable society, at the places of summer resort, which will excite no slight degree of sensation. Altogether, we are justified in anticipating a most brilliant season at the watering places. The arrangements of the hotel-keepers have been very liberal, and in good taste. At Saratoga, all the hotels have been re-furnished and fitted up in fine style. Newport has long been famed for the excellence of its caravansaries, and this year the public houses there have been painted and decorated, and arranged with such care and expenditure; that they are quite equal to Buckingham Palace. The retreats in our more immediate neighborhood have also been elegantly prepared for their visiters. Hamilton House, at the Narrows, a favorite place of resort, the hotel at Richfield Springs, und Mr. Cczzens's new and splendid house at West Point, with many other agreeable resorts in this region, pre rent unusual attractions. We shall keep up our reports of all the interesting proceedings at those watering places, and endeavor to give an accurate and agreeable picture of the society which lre! i.ncnta them. in nil its iilimii'g There is no cholera?no sickness ut any of the watering places. The Grand Jury and the Astor Flack Mas sacre.?We understand thut the Grand Jury have tound bills of indictment ^against upwards of twenty persons, who wers concerned in or incited the riot, which took place ut the Astor Place Theatre recently, and which resulted in a terrible and lamentable effusion of blood. Tins is right and proper. We hope, however, that there has been no distinction made; but that equal and exact justice, to all w ho putticipated in the proceedings which led to that deplorable catastrophe, especially thote who led on the boys and young men, and exhort* d them to throw stones at the militaiy and the windows of the theatre, will be meted out. We hope, too, that the conduct of the police, on the first night, has not been overlucked. It was culpable in the extreme; and if onr infoimation is correct, many of them even sided with the rioters, and were pleased, at their demonstrations against Macready. It appears, also, that several of them were under double pay that night?that they were compensated for preserving property in the neighborhood of the disaster, at the very time when they were drawing salaries from the corporation. How is this 1 How did it happen that this wm? talerated 1 Who's to blame I If the last Grand Jury have not investigated those matters, we trust they will not be overlooked j by the next inquest. Let us have the truth and the ! whole truth. Our citizens ought to know every- j thing connected with the deplorable loss of life which those who, either by negligence in the dis. i < charge cf their duty, or in preventing the riot, as { well us those who incited it, caused. Let it uli appear. Thk 11 uss Favi;mknt.?Irs Extension.?We were ^lail to perceive, tlic other day, that the iioard of Aldermen had passed u resolution, authorizing tin extension of the Rusk pavement in Broadway. Wt arc mueh pleased at this. The merits of this excellent paving arc too well known, tomuke it necet.-aiy to refer to them now. It speaks for itself, in n nmnner that can't he misunderstood. From the time it was first I iid, till the present, it but* not cot t a copper for repairing, und will not, in probability, for n cen'.uiy to come. Not a stoue lias becu displaced, notwithstanding the incessant wear and tear which it is subject to, and it is palpable that that part of the city, where it isjuid, is the cltnnest, and kept cleaner than any other.? It tests with the Board of Assistants to s iy whether ottr citizens shall he gratified with the extension. We hope the subject will occupy thei rattention at their m xt n t tmsr. und that they will conenr with the Board of Al lermen in authorising the xterisi* n. If a doubt of the excellence and durability of this pavement existed, th> r? would br tome excuse for their note concurrence, but none Mich exists. Let us have the Hues pavement throughout the whole ol Broudway a-s speedily as |ossihle. ,' ueh is the desire of the peo|Jc g n rully, and we hope it will fie gratified.

The foregoing eases prove distinctly that cholera, or the disease said to lie cholera, is produced by exhaustion from over-beating the body, by intemperate habits and by tilth. It is u curious pi rversit.y of the human mind, that the fear of cholera drives people into the very practices which produce it. There can be no doubt that a little good brandy, taken in small quantitics aud'dilutfd with is rather scrr.ceahle tbun otherwise, a- it haepalup the healthy action of the skin; but bad ' rundy. or even good brandy, taken to cxecss. is about as sure a road to cholera as can be tra I Villed We r?c licet that in 1832 and 1831, men w'l were sober before b. coxne tipplers and even confirmed drunkards, front taking brindy to prevent cholera. We regiut to find that a similar delusion now prevails, and will be likely to result iu tlie same consequences Whatever enervates the body. as b8d liquor, or much of w hat is good, indubitably does is dangerous; and the great recret of immunity from cholera, is keeping the body in health by temperance, u'generous. wholesome diet, and by pure air freed from those noxious exhalations from tilth, which sometimes despatch the man who breathes them more rapidly than would arBcnio.

Sporting Intelligence* Union CounsE, L. I.?TaoTTino.?A notice of the fact that Lady SufTolk would trot, no matter where, or for what amount, has, in every instance, drawn together a crowd to witness her performances; and with her recent wonderful achievement* fresh in the mind* of every one. there is a greater desire to see her now then ever before. A large attendance at the Union Course may, therefore, be anticipated this afternoon. The competitors of the mare for the purse, are Jack Rossiter and I'elham; the latter, probably, tho most speedy horse on the face of the globe. He has, however, shown an unsteadiness in some of his trotting, and people generally are wary of backing htm against the mare. Lady Suffolk is the favorite against the field, at odds. Pelham and Rossiterjare backed for for second best, at even. Ou the match for $1 000, between Little Western and Diamond, the latter has the call. , Brooklyn City Intelligent#. Case or Leaser?

After the confession she became above stated, when the officer discovered her; after informing ber he was an officer, she consented to go with him and clung to him for protection. It seems evident, from gathered sentences muttered, that she has been either crossed in in love, or the victim of an attempted ravishment; but she refused to give any account of it, though she admitted a< much as is interred She attempted, while at the City Hall, to escape, and very nearly succeeded, jumping out of the window with an astonishing celervity, and making down Kulton street, with the speed of a race-horse; but was overtaken by the officer, Rfter a hard chase, and urn m tit tain a word nut walKe-j back again She stutes that she arrived In thin country.

Fbom Nassau, N. P.?Files of the Nassau Guardtuu to the bill lust, have been received, from which vve extract the following items: On Monday, 4th inst., us the schooner Fly was returning from Long Island to Nassau, with a deck load of entile, she struck on a reef at the east end of the island, and instantly bilged. The master and crew succeeded in saving themselves in a bout, bui the cattle were all drowned. The Anieiienn batk Oaks Anpcier, T. E. Drinkwater, master, bound from Philadelphia to Cienfuegos, with an assorted cargo, was totally lost at Little lnaguii on the night of the 20th ult. The captain, his wife, one passenger, and crew, have arrived at Nassau. A part of the cargo has been saved. The heat in Nassau was intense during May, the thermometer ranging from HO to 84. After u long drought, the rain commenced lulling about the middle of May, much to the joy of the planters. At Watling's Island, Fxuma, and Long Island, they had good ruins, and the crops generally looked well. At Andros Islund, Grand Bahama and Berry Islands, the crops were rather poor, in consequence of the long continued drought. The pineapple crops, on the several islands of the colony where that favorite and delicious fruit is cultivated, have become rapidly matured by the recent falls of rain. A great many vessels have already arrived at iMCHinera trom ?,iigiuncl and the United States, for fruit. From the extensive resources for salt making, and its favorable location for commercial pur|K>ses, it is supposed that the island of Inagua will, in time, rank next in importance to Nassau, among the Bahamas. The salt-raking season at Rum fay, Long Island, and Long Cay, has been most propitious, the quantity of salt already obtained at these places amounting to about 220,000 bushels. The rain which fell on the 13th and l!)th ultimo, would retard the operations of the salt-raker, for about a fortnight, but would prove of great benefit to agriculture, which had been greatly retarded, on account of the long drought. The salt-raking prospects of Turks Island, are represented as very favorable, this season, both at Grand and Salt Cays. The Turks Island Gazette, of the 2d ult., states " that larger gatherings at Salt Cay, for the season, were never known, some pans having been in a state of making over thirty days, without a shower." The Sandwich Islands.?We have received files of the Polynesian to March 10, and, of the Friend j to March 8,1849.

We hear nothing more of the trial of Judd. It : probably never will be heard of again. The Aites of February 22 contains " Mr. Tea f Eyck's answer to Mr. Wyllic's defence of Dr. ! Judd."

Thk Arkansas Gold Mink?Col Black's letter and the intended expedition from this place in Augiibt next, in Keurch ot the gold placer which he alleges to lmye visited, have created much stir among our citizens, and of course excited much conversation. We have been furnished with the following circumstances which led to the expedition in IbiC:? It seems that in 1825, Capt. Pryor, the Osage Agent, during a visit to New Orleans, met with a wealthy merchant, who represented himself us one of the members of Pike's ill-fated party, who were taken prisoners in New Mexico in 1807. He stated that the party wus taken to Santa Pe, and there imprisoned. He escaped in company with another mun; and they proceeded towards the waters of the Aikansus river, down the course of which they continued. On Wulnut creek, as it is now culled, their attention was attracted to mining operations, which led tofurther examination,and the hmil disco- . very of gold. They dug out a considerable quantity, run it into bars, and proceeded down the rivar in a canoe; and arrived at Natchez, where they separated. Capt. Pryor's informant went to New Orleans, where his gold enabled him to embark in commeice and to accumulate a considerable fortune. Ills wealthy circumstances were such as to satisfy Capt. Pryor why he did not desire to penetrate the wilderness and peril his life, at his advanced age. He was particular in describing the ereek on which it was, and gave a pretty clear idea of the locality in which the gold migui De found. Col. Bluck found the golden sands on the creek described by this geutlernuu in New Orleans. McNair's discovery of gold was on the suuie creek; .....l ..II .h...., ...........T - ? mmu M.i tMwcv vuHvu.iiiig vu\,uill3taiaca CCUIUIUIUC to establish in the minds of our citizens, the conviction that they will tind gold in that region next August. Another witness enters, to favor the idea that the region about to be visited is a mineral country. A citizen ot this Stale has placed in our possession for perusal, a statement given to him 1111831, at Havana, by a Spanish gentleman, who was a .'Surgeon in u Spanish party that explored the Upper Arkansas, in 1763, and crossed over from this river to the waters of the Yellow Stone and bach again, over to Santa Fe. and who visited the same region, where they took large quantities ot silver ore. At this place they were attacked by Indians, and all the party, excepting himself aiid eight others were killed. 1 hey escaped, afterwards returned, constructed bufialo canoes, and proceeded down the river with their ore. On their voyage down the river, they lauded, erected furnaces, and run their silver into bars. The pluces where the furnaces had been erected, were described. Our informant visited the places, and there found the furnaces. He is one of the most eager to go up on the trip in August. We have, since the publication of Col. Black's letter, conversed with Mr. l'lckett, who expressed a lull convictiou that the region in question abounds in gold; he says that the failure of the expe- i dilion in 182V, was owing to ttie entire ignorance of every member of the whole party on the subject ofminerals and mineral countries. We were struck with the exact correspondence of Mr. Fickett's description ot the creek and surrounding country, with that given by the Spanish surgeon in Havana, and more than ever become convinced that our irirnds will tind gold and silver. We entertain no doubt of the success of the puny that will leave in August, and our golden visions arc beginning to shine brighterand brighter. The establishment of a great depot for extensive mining operauons in our own county, ut tins point, appears certain. The great increuse of business of our city, and the enhancement of tkc value ot all real estate throughout tins whole region, North and South of the river, will give un impetus to the prospetity of our country. To iiiuuy who are now speculating upon the great probabilities of success in this enterprise, this gieat change will not be a tonisbing, but some of our prosy ueigtibors will be shocked us though by an electric stroke, ut the sudden and brilliant Career thut will spring up before them.?

I Sunday, June :J 1? 0 P. JI. I The wreck cleped yesterday much quieter than aati- ' I clpated from the complexion of tba accounts trona H California, the amount of gold reoeived, and the I amount expected from that part of the world. Tho H hull speculator* have, for some time pa<t, operated I largely in the fancies, with the impression that the re- *1 ceipt Of several millions of gold dust would rapidly iu- I llute prices, and giTe the beam a quietus; hut they I have thus far been disappointed. Thu arrivals of Call- B fornia gold during tho past week amount to seven huu- 'I dred thousand dollars, and it will be a month or two I before we shall receive any more of consequence. The I effect of this delay upon quotations for fancy stocks I cannot hut be unfavorable, and tho bulls will require I some other motive power to put up or sustain prices. I The product of gold iu California has thus far, under the I circumstance*, been immense; end supplies for ihe future I will, without doubt, he full as large as anticipated; but I even this docs not satisfy those who are looking for aa I immediate and immense inflation in prices for every A I species of property, and lor every kind of stoek se- ^B curity. As yet, we have not experienced any expaa sion in the currency or In prices for any of our pro ducts, from the increase In the supply of gold. Out' .banks have on hand between nlno ar 1 ten millions of specie, and still there Is no augmentation of movement JH in their leading departments. Money is cheaper than I it has been known lor years, notwithstanding which I tber* is no sneculative feeling In mI?(?h... .? > i? B ? .?< wiu require an enormous addition to the supply of precious metals, to bring about any important change in tha present state of things, connected with finance and commerce. The immense value of property, which is now represented by such a small amount of gold and silver, cannot be moved beyond its long established worth, without increasing the volume of currency a , large per cent; and as this is not likely soon to bs realized, there >s very little prospect of any very groat advance in prices. It must also be borne in mind, that the increase in gold will naturally displace a portion of the paper currency of the world, and the etfuut of ? the additional supply of bullion upon paper credits must first be realized, before there will be any visible influence upon prices of property. We, therefore, do not apprehend any undue expansion in credits, publlo or private, or any derangemeut in any of the ramifications of trade. The public mind has become so revo- ' lutionized, as regards speculation in representatives o." property possessing no real value, that the acocssion of millions upon millions of gold would hardly suifioe to remove that distrust wklch bag taken such deep root in tbie community We see this clearly illustrated in the high prices paid for tboxo securities known to be undoubted, and the neglect of those which for the prose ut pay high rates of interest, but, iu fact, possess no rt al, tangible value. Capitalists and those who have heretofore held large lots of fancy stocks, touch nothing now but what is as :afe and as sound as possible to be made, feeling apparently bolter satisfied with the reduced rates of interest such securities give at pre IJ/t sent prices, than with higher rates whore there is the slightest risk. Government and State stocks have consequently advanced rapidly, while even dividend- f paying railroads and fancy securities generally hare as rapidly d< predated. United States and State 6's, at current quotations, do not pay inure than four arid a half per cent interest; and such is the dctnuul, even at , there high rates, that tlie probability of higher prices being realized is very strong. Any important improvement would reduce the rate of interest; but such is the feeling ot apprehension relative to other securities,that 4 four e,r four and a half per cent, euro, is better than eight and teu per cent, without any guaranty that it will be J crmanent. Tbero are railroad stocks selling in this market, at rates which give the purchaser ten per rent iuterest on the investment; but the payment of interest is so precarious, and the probability of a pension so great, that very little di.-porition is exhibited to place capital in such a dangerous portion. The fancies generally arc so much neglected, that wo res no prospect of au improvement;, on the contrary, a depreciation appeals to be beyond the power of lue I bulls to prevent. I The mint comparative statement exhibits the I quotations in this muiket for each da/ of last week. I and at the clcfc of the week previous.
