She was built ia Philadelphia in 1854, of 700 tens register, and valued at about $40,000. Her owners were Messrs. Heron A \I*r tin, of Philadelphia. Tbe vessel and cargo are in ?urtd in Philadelphia and Baltimore. An office in Wall street had $6,000 on the cargo, but the policy was cancelled on her putting bock. She was loaded with provisions, corn and naval stares, and carriid some paeB^nnets. This is the third Philadelphia and Liverpool steamrr lost within about twelve months.

Tae r . port was laid on the table., in order to njtify his Honor to be prwent at the next meeting of the Board, to substantiate hia charges, or withdraw thtm if he could not. Reference was made to cer tain frauds committed on emigrants by so-called respectable shipowner*, who furniahed these poor people with brass ?ain tor gold.

Robwuu, in Dty street, in March, 1651, the cir cumstances of which are no donbt fresh in the Kinds of our readers, came up in the Court of Oyer and Terminer jeeterday. After sjme exp'an ition respecting the absence cf important witnesass, and the injpcfisibili'y cf again convicting the prisoner of murder, the Court a oepted a plea of guilty of manslaughter in the fourth degree, and pissed sen erce of four years impruoment in the penitentiary Major rarraelee, of Albany, has issued his pro clamation of what he intends to do wi'-h reference ?othe new liquor law. Heretofore the power to grant licenses in Albany ban rested solely with the Mb.vor of that city. Mr. Parmolee concludes his manifesto as follows:? " While it (the Maine law) continues in fcrce, I shall endeavor, so far as may be, consistent wilh other official responsibilities, to discharge all dittos devolved uprvn me by this law. And if it i? deemed advisable to present for legal decision any question arising under it in relation to the city chaiter, I shall grant such licenses aa may be ne.etsary for that purpose." Brigbam Young, the High Priest of Mormondom acd Governor of Utah Territory delivered a long and impassioned harangue to the Latter Day Saints at Great Bait Lake City, on the 18th February. Ha commenced with reviewing the pnrsocutiena sus tained by the faithful, eul gizing Jo Smith, as in duty b:ntd, rxtolled the patriotism of the M.irmous during the war with Mexico, and gradually ds veloped the motive and object of his di^oourse by a disquisition on the right of Congress, under the constitution, to interfere with the religion of the MormoiB, poligamy inclnded. Brigbam aays no power or authority in the government can law fully or lighteonsly molest them in ths peaceable and quiet enjoyment of their religion, poligamy, of course, included. We shall public h tliis important manifesto of Gov. Young's in a day or two. The Kuropean War? The Redaction at Sebaa topol Considered Hopeless by Louis Napoleon ?Probable Failure of the Vienna Nego tiations. Tbc news received by the Africa is rather of an extrao rdinary character. Were it not for the immense war preparations which we hear of being vigorously pushed forward on both sides, it would seem as If there was some dis position on the part of the allies to cave in. In a remarkable official document, occupying fire columns of the Moniteur, Louis Napoleon en ters into an explanation of the military opera tions ot the allies since the commencement of the war, defends his own plan of the Crimean campaign, and points out the immense difficul ties of the siege of Sebastopol, under present circumstances. Such a document, emanating from such a source, at the most critical poiut of the Vieona negotiations, is naturally looked upon by the advocates of peace as indicating a desire, fit' not an intention, on the part of the allies to raise the siege. Although it is certainly liable to such an interpretation, we think that there is an antecedent tact which would fully explain the necessity of tome such publi cation on the part of the French Emperor. The pamphlet attributed to the pen of his cousin, and wbich, if not written by him, bore evidence to an intimate knowledge of the Emperor's ideas and plans in connection with the Crimean campaign, bad somewhat damaged the reputa tion for sagacity and prudence which the latter had acquired. That it was written under feel ir>gs of personal pique and was somewhat highly colored, did not detract from the general accuracy of its facts aud conclusions. The manilcsto in the Moniteur is, therefore, pro bably intended to remove the unfavorable im pressions which this expose of military blun ders had created. How far it sncceeds in ac complishing its purpose we arc of course un able to judge until we have the text of the document before us. There is something extremely curious, too, in tbc turn which the Vienna negotiations are taking. "VV'e nre told that the Congress re sumed its deliberations on the 8th, but ad journed again after a sitting of one hour, no period having been fixed for its next meeting. Tic reason suggested for this, (by implication ) for no positive statement is made on the sub? jt c'.is that the Russian representatives had not r< ceivcd the instructions for which they had icferrcd to St. Petersburg. No v. the pre vious adjournment had taken place on th* 26th, so that between thaf. day and the 8th, on wbich the next meeting took place, a period of thirteen days had elupsid, amply sufficient, one wonld thibk, to enable Prince Gortschikoffaud his colleague to carry on a lengthened corres pondence with Count Nestclrodc ! When we couple with this circumstance the tact that, although between the pe riod of tbc last adjournment and the sail ing of the Africa another bix days had elapsed without our hearing any.hiog further of these instructions, or of any time being focd fi r the resumption of the sittings of the conference, we cannot help reiterating the opinion which we recently expressed, that these negotiations have arrived at a dead lock, and will prove an utter failure. How any other expectations could have been fcimtd from them has been always to us a matter of surprise. The very bases on which they were founded were suggestive of insupera ble difficulties. In evincing a disposition to treat on those bases, it is absurd to suppose flint Russia was ever actuated by any siuocre desire for peace. If we refer back for a mo ment to the interpretation given by the late Czar to this very third point in the aide m> ? moire of the allies, it will be seen that he never bad the slightest intention to concede anything which could substantially affect the preponderance of Russia in the Black Sea. As this point is but too frequently overlooked in the newspaper discussions to which these nego tiations give rise, we think it necessary to re vert to the text of the Russian interpretation: ? 3 Revision of tlie treaty of the 1 3th July, 1841, to attach more completely the existence of the Ottoman empire to the balance of Kurope. f c'o not refits* to foire to iin undtrnUnriioir in forT.nl conference for pence on the itimb* which the three court* may pro rsse to put so end to what they call the preponderance of nseia In the bla<-k Sen, cn eon.litir n that, in the cholee of tlivMS nit an? there lie not one of a nature to infringe u|.ot> Ue right* nf norereianty of my august mas.eroo hi* own territory (chtt bui ) IIow, in lace of such a declaration, the allies could lope to come to any understanding con sist* nt with the objects which they professed to have in view, and without which in reality all their effort and their sacrifices will have been Ibrown awsy, it !n<Jiffi;ult for people uu verted in the resources of diplomatic Ingenuity to compre hend. There is no condition whioh they could insist upon m seriously essential to the reduc tion of Russian supremacy in theEuxine, which would not have entered within the category of exceptions taken by this clause. What, then, was the object of the Emperor Ni cholas in consenting to treat at all if he was seriously determined to adhere to this inter pretation ? The motive is apparent. The allies bad succeeded in casting looie the ancient ties of friendship and gratitude that bad bound Austria to him, and it bfcame necessary for him to do something to win her back again. By consenting to the points affirming the inde pendence of the Principalities aad the free na vigation of the Danube, he conciliated her ma terial interests, and afforded her a motive for refoeing to be a party to any invasion of the integrity of bis dominions. This policy Alex ander has strictly carried out, and we are much mistaken if the difficulties that have arisen at the present moment in reference to this third point are not owing as much to Austria as to Russia herself. It is well known that the former Power will not consent to the razing of the fortress of Sebastopol, and without that condition no other guarantee can be effective. Coupling these facts with the extraordinary document in the Moniteur to which we have just referred, an inferenco might certainly be drawn from them in favor of the probabilities of peace. But against that conclusion we have the certainty that Russia will never yield, ex cept to superior force, any condition that will infringe upon her sovereign rights or which will be injurious to her national honor. The allies dare not carry out any ne gotiation at pressnt which will not deeply wound both. The popular feeling of both England and France would rise in an in dignant outburst against such pusillanimous conduct on the part of their rulers. Ne cessity urges forward nations as well as indi viduals in the blind path of destiny, and gloomy and terrible as is the prospect, there peems no other alternative left open to the bel ligerents than to persevere in the course in which their ambition and their cupidity have engaged them. The Liquor War. The war begin? to- nigh. Thiflj evening the prohibitionist# are to meet at the Metropoli tan theatre to concert measures to carry the Prohibitory Liquor act into effect It is expected that the Lieutenant Governor will be present, and will deliver a speech In fa vor of the law as explicit as his letter to Mr. Richardson, and as eloquent as his caucus sptech for Seward is said to have been. True, the paper he conducts is shaking in the wind, trying to conciliate the liquor dealers on the one hand and to keep up with the editor's per gonal declarations on the other; but this is a I mere matter of subscriptions and advertise ments. The non. Henry J. Raymond has too much at stake to allow the threats of a few ho tel keepers and wine merchants to frighten him I from the stand he haa taken. Common decency will not permit him to betray the cause, after bis written adhesion to it has raised him to the second place in the gift of the people of New York. No, no: there is no such baseness yet among public m<>n. The Lieutenant Governor will be there, and will say like a man why he helped the liquor law through the Senate, and how it should be enforced. He is none of your double faced, white livered turncoats who make any pledge and promise any thing for place, then gulp down promises and pledges and all, when their own ambition has been served, and the hour of trial comes. ' Not at all: he will be | (Here It. will certainly be an anomalous spectacle to see the house so lately filled with a good humored audience in search of pleasure and in tellectual enjoyment, crammed, as it doubtless will be, with bigots and fanatics with sour and vinegar aspect, glowering and frowning upon each other. There they will be, taking ccumel by what shortest method they can utterly ruin an odd hundred thousand of tbtir fellow- citizenB. A strange sight! If there were any sense or moderation at all among the temperance fanatics, their first resolution on would be to the effect that, the ignorance of tyc framcrs of the Prohibitory law having reudered it wholly inoperative, the agitation w*s postponed for the present, and would be taken up at the next session of | the Legislature. No legal authority of any standing entertains the smallest doubt as to the legal effect of the law; it must in any event ba null and void as to foreign liquors, whether the Legislature have or have not the right to pro hibit their Pale. But the fanatics will not be satisfied with this. They require that the pom should be tested, cases made, tried, and car ried up to the highest court of the United States, where th?*y will probably be decided? not on the real legal points at issue -bat on the blunders of the framers of the law. Heuce for three or four months at least, the whole community will be kept in a state of wild ex citement: disturbances are not unlikely to o> cur among those classes who can least brook an interference wi"h their social habits; and all the while, moie liquor than ever will be drunk il the sound moral sense of the people does cot step in and save them from themselv- s. The police will be powerless. The Mayor will I be powerless. There will be no check or gaa I rantee for the public in the shape of licenses ! Altogether, the prospect is that New York wil be a scene of rioting, drunkenness and profani ty during the whole ot the controversy. Still a Ciianck for Mb. Dickinson.?

The committee of the Board of Conncilmen. of which Dr. Baney is chairman, appointed to investi gate tbe condition of affairs in the Asylum for the BIjiJ, assembled in tbe committee rooms of the Institation yesterday afternoon, and proceeded to tlieir Investiga tion. The committee ware shown through the entir* building. This cemmittee originates fr om a petition to the frard of Ceuncilmen, from a large number ef blind people stating tbev are out of work, and aeklng the city to grant tbem reller. Tbe committee found out very few pwple employed in the manufacturing departments ot the building, and but little work being done. The reason Riven by tbe Institution, is, that owing to dull busintss(tbe Institution has run short gof funds, not beirg able to sell its stock. Tbe sales of the institution for the months of January and February, of this year, have been between tbree and four thoujana dollars less than the sales of tbe name months last year.

Alderman Howard in the chair. The committee called up the consideration of the late resolution of the Board, with regard to the propriety of reporting an ordinance appointing four Aiaiatant En gineer* for districts in the upper part of the city, run" uing as far aa Harlem. The Cuaibmam explained the nature of the suggestion with respect to the securing the servloes of engineers for these districts, aa by the plan of general election they may be left unrepresented at the meeting of the Fire De partment Board. He would be happy to hear sugges tions from any of the department on the subject. Mr Thompson, foreman of No. 63 hose, would prefer that the Committee of the Fire Department should carry the plan into effect themselves. Their committee had al ready considered it, and he thought tbat they would report a suitable ordinance. Ha thought that it wouli be more proper lor legislation to emanate from the Board of En gineers ana Firemen. They haa already prepared the beads of the ordinance, and were only waiting for the new edition ot the counted laws of the department in order to perfect the law they proposed. They proposed two engineers for Harlem, instead of one. It was decided that the committee woul 1 report in fa vor of reiemng the resolution to the Committee of En gineers, with the suggestion of adding one engineer for Manhattanville, and having two in Harlem. Br. Lxvnucx, of No. 7 hose, stated a case against Hook and Ladder No. 12 building a new house on a corporation lot, in the neighborhood of Fourth avenue and Thirteenth street, aa its limits were not properly defined. He exhibited a copy of a ground plan from the Comptioller's office in order to show that the city did not with good title own the plot alongside the house of hose No. 7 He wanted to be made oertain that No. 12's company would not pull down the house of No. 7. Tbe committee decided not to take any action in the matter. Mr. Harbison, foreman of engine No. 17, attended with respect to the charge of Engine Company No. 44, which was partially heard by the committee at lta pre vi jus sitting. He bad not his roll book with him, but stated that all the men, exoept James Richards, were out on tbe night in quest.on, the 17th of February, and that tbe company numbered thirty- one members. John White, of engine oompany No. 17, sworn? Is assistant foreman; was at the fire in East Broadway on 17th of February ; met No 44, and when on the sidewalk be was assaulted by one of the men of No. 44; he chased him off, and then two other men attacked him; they fell down, but he did not strike them; the foreman was ahead at ihe time; he did not see the men struck; he did net strise tbe men with a trumpet; he atruok at them, but could not say if he hit any person. Mr. Harrison, of engine No. 44, waa called out during the muss, and saw men belonging to No. 17 first assault ing his men; they stopped the jumper or No. 17 first. Peter Mai.onky, of No. 44, swore that Mr. White, of engine No. 17, knocked him down with his trumpet on that night. Ahraham Bloom waa examined on the part of engine No. 17, for the purpose of showing that the men ef No. 44 were the aggressors. Lkwi8 Jones, of No. 44, swore that No. 17 were the ass tilantr ; he picked up Maloney'a cap. After a good deal of swearing on both sides, the com mittee decided that all the privates of engine company No. 17 (with the exception of James Richards) should be suspended for three months, and the offloers, foreman and assistant for six months. The Chairman announced that in the case of Engine Company So. 38, vs. Alfred Carson, Chief Engineer, the committee was compelled to decide that the Chief Engi neer was wrong in refusing No. 33 their engine, and thus disobeying a resolution of tbe Common Counoll, sanctioned by the Mayor ? a proceeding he waa not jus tified In, The case of Engine Company No. 47, was postponed until next Wednesday, wbea a decision will be given. The committee adjourned to next Wednesday evening. Fire Msrthal'a Investigations. ATTEMPT TO BURN THK ST. LOUIS HOTIL? ABRE3T ON SUSPICION OF ABSON ? REMARKABLE DEVBLOPB MBNT8 ATTENDING THB CASE. A fire occurred in the St. Louis Hotel, No. 103 Cham bers street, on Monday morning, between 3 and 4 o'clock, the 23d inst. it was discovered in a bedroom on the first floor of the rear building. The Fire Marshal's exanaina. tion ot the premises on the morning of the fire showed conclusively the burning to have been the act of an incendiary, the main facts of which have already been published, in refeience to tbe means used by tbe incenoiary to ? fleet arson. It will be recollected the wall of tbe unoccupied houie adjoining, on Cuurch street, had been broken through in two places, thus giving access to the underneath flooring of the hotel premises, in which bad been lodged a quantity of small sticks ot pine kindling wood, to which the match had been applied. The fire had burnt through the floor, and was extending rapidly through' the room when disco vered. The alarm was given, and the firemen arriving in good season, extingnlalied the flames. Ihe Fire Mar shal, irom certain facts elicited during a brief examina tion, was led to suspect that Henry Hart, a young mtn lormerly porter in the hotel, waa In some way cognizant ot the bui sing of the premises ; and accort Ingiy measures were taken to ascertain his whereabouts, and on Tues day he was taken into custody, under the following order ssued by Judge Stuart: ? Tbis will authorize Alfred E. Baker (the Fire Marshal) to take and keep in custody Henry ilart, charged with n felony. It w also to diiect tbat officers Martiudale and ilerry iba'l act, aid and assist Mr. Baker in the diseovtr; of evi dence tendirg to implicate the laid Hart in the offence of wbicb be stands accased. S. H. STUART, City Jnd-re. April 24. 1 Mi. On the above warrant of commitment, Mr. Baker con veyed Hart to the Third ward police station house, theie placed him in the custody of Lleat. Uoadenow, and procured the services of Sergeant Martlndtle. It will be well to show here that on tbe 3d of April, Mr. Haakins, tie proprietor of the hotel, discharged Hart from his service. A dissatiafaotiou took place on tbe Eut of Hart on his discharge in reference to the wages, art claimed $10 a mentb, and Mr. Hasklns contended he waa only entitled to SO a month . at any rate the latter amount waa all Mr. Haskins paid biui, and the following receipt was signed by Hart;? copy or RF.CLIPT. New York, April 3, 1855. Received of M. L. liart payment in full for work, from December 1 to April 3, ISM. II. liART. Mr Ik liart is tbe name of the bookkeeper and agent in tbe employ of Mr Haeklna. On the night of the 3d instant, the door of tae wine cellar was forced open, and tbe faucets of the btandy and gin casks turned on, letting thahguor escape isto tbe cebur, destroying about $300 wol. Suspicion at once re?tsd on Hart, as he was to have made some Indirect threats against Mr. Haskins. Howevever no notice was taken by Mr. Has kins in reference to the lost of the liquor; the servants in the house were not cognizant of tt; as by keeping it a secret, Mr. Haskins believed something would develope itself, whereby tbe gulity party could be bronght to justice. Accordingly, one day last week, Mr. Hart, the bookkeeper oi the hotel. re>ivod an anonymous letter by the pennypost,ot which the following is % copy ? New York, April 11, ld-M. Dear Sir ? I deem it neo3ssary to inlorin you lor the Rood of all parties, that it you bad paid what yoti owod, your "brandy and gin" would have been saved. For it is a ?in tbat ories to heaven for vengeance to defraud laborers ef their wafces. P. S. We shall meet again when and where you least ot peot it, U. ?##* Directed? Motes L. Hart. St. Loais Hotel, 101 and 103 Chambers street, Mew Tiurk. On the inspection of this letter, the similarity of the writing to that o) Henry Hart lea the proprietor of the hotel to S'ispect Hart to be the person ?ao wil ully destroyed t'je liquor, and accordingly he went aefore Jus tice Connolly and ent>red a complaint, and a wtrraut was issued lor Hart's arrm ou a charge of malicious mis.'hief, but the officer holding the warrant, not know ing his whereabouts, tailed to ruake an arrest. On Tues day morning the hie Marshal called on justice Con nolly in reference to the case, and asked the magistrate to seethe letter supposed to have been written t>y Htrt. On inspection or the letter Mr. ISaker discovered a stamp of a public office on the envelope. Tbis fact at once cati> flea the Marshal tbat Hart was the author of the letter. He then proceeded to Hart's lodging room ia Leonard street, accompanied by Sergeant Martiniale; they there found two trunks and two carpet bag*, ia one of tbe trunks waa found several envelopes of the site, and bearing a similar office stamp to the one en closing the anonymous letter. In this trunk t- ere was alro lound two hands^ose coits, a pur of pauta'oom aud a vest, together with a lot of valuable boots. In the ether trunk was found upwards o( $;>0 in goli and sil ver, an opera glass, a gold watch and chain, a gold bracelet, pair of gold sleeve studs, and three breast pins. All these articles wers taken charge of by tbe po lice. and subsequently claimed by the boarders of the St. Louis Hotel, tbe articles having been stolen from their rooms luring tbe time ilart was employed in tbe hotel as porter. Fr>m tbe fact of tbe anonymous letter having b?en traced to Hart aa the anther, and the sil' evident fact that whoever committed the arson was we1 1 aeons in ted with the premiaes, together with other facta and cirrumstances, throws tbe susp-c.on of the authiri ties on the a:cused, who is now in rha* cu<t?1y in the charge.

Theodore Marline and othru. ? The trial of this cause waa resumed this morning by the introduction, on the part of the plaintiffs, of the original bill of item* upon which the action was first brought. There waa a goodly attendance of the "faithful," whs seemed, appa rently, to enjoy the exhumation of their doings during that memorable campaign with considerable guato. The plain tilth' coumel having rested, Mr. D. D. Field, on the part of defendant Mar tine moved to dismiss the complaint, on the alleged ground that they had tailed to prove any of the "soft" im peachments charged in tne complaint, and that they had also failed to connect the derenlant, Martine, with the indebtedness now sought to be saddled upon him; and also that Mr. M. did nut attend any of the meetings of the committee of 1852 until the 6th of August of that year, and never met with them but once or twice after that ; and further, that they had failed te show that the charges in the bill of particulars rendered were just, fair and correct The motion to dlsmisa was denied by the Court, and the defence proceeded with by the ex amination of feveral ex-members of that committee, among whom were Lorenzo B. Shepard, Ken., K. J. Dil lon, Esq., F. L. Vulte, A. A. Phillips, ex-Judge Daniel E. Sickles, Esj . ex-Secretary of Legation to Lon-loa, John A. Kennedy, and others. In the course of the cross -examination of Mr. Shepard, counsel Tor the defendant, Marline, inquired of htm if he recollected any particular incident during the year 1852, to which- Mr. Shepard replied that Henry Clay died that Sear, and aleo Daniel Webster; in response to a farther iquiry as to whether those events called for an iUumi nation of Tammany Hall, he replied, "No; but we eleot ed General Pierce that year, which I consider sufficient cause for illumination. " (Laughter.) The jury retired after tne cnarge of the Judge, and brought in a verdict of $26 95 aga.nst Ma Martine, as his proportion. The Court informed them that they were not justified in apportioning the amount; that they might return a verdict for six cents or for the full aaaonnt if they pleased, and Mr. Martine could have hia remedy against the other members of the committee. The jury were again directed to retire, and in a few minutes they brought in a peremptory vercict for the fame amount? ?26 96? which was recorded. United States Commissioner's Court.
