THE NEW YORK HERALD. i,'? WHOLE NO. 6844. MORNING EDITION? WEDNESDAY, MAT 23, 1855. PRICE TWO CENTS. THE SOTJLE AND PEREY UTJABBEL.

Fieri* soulr, reached ine her# oa tae 14th insiant. It was not my intention ti have noticed that letter in any manner. It* language, indeed, was meant to fcatbo ma; but, aa betw?ea its writer and my ?elf, I m |bt have left it where it fell. It does not reach ^llore recently, however, 1 bare become aware "f tb? bad eflec< cf tbav Utter, and of the system ot whuh it 1 1 a part. I Lave men with pain that the tone by alarge pmtion of our new.paper .J^u-Xt^rU quence of tli. uncontraocted hypothesis of the letter, is calculated to blind the juugme.t of oar peopte u-.t aa reeards imsel? merely, but with iespect to th? grave M?bjecw o( national concern with waica my hamDle nTh\T^%Urn&htt,.ee,tbat the unscr.pnlotl. hand which wtote that letter 1. at -ora in other air*e fV~ to noi-on the ears of the pe >ple concerning their aiTa -a with the SpanisH nation, and that perhaps hia daiuerou<( influence had found means to rnaae itself felt- even in your cabinet and in your closet, to the aeUiment cf the high interest* of Aminca. I have recognized with regret toat the m-ans which I ?hare been aile to employ thu* tar, within the ttrlet limit* of diplomatic etiquette and diao.plme, to present or to reused j the evU consequences of tr.e error" i ?! ^ the lata Minister to 4pam, have net been sufficient to tneir "ftta. apoeaied tome, therefore that the gravity of the K?*t question* involved in the controversy w ^ Mr. Honlc- Lb carried Into the public nniM, has a point whete the ordinary forms of di^omiayfuilaui ? Oiiect appeal to the American people, and Its jou, air. aa tbeir repiesentative baa b-com-t ua^sHary. ^ aide*, if, in fact. the calumnious character of tb's be at all la doubt, it is interesting to the decorum of tia Amcfficaa^ovfrnment, ana to that of your tionin particular, that a citizen wh? actually has 'he honor to jepreeent the republic at one of the Pri??'P*j courts of Europe, however Hmali may be his in rlt . in nthnr remects should not leave uncorrected the tiy po t^afa?hat be may be either a spy or a traitor. Permit me theief ore, to examine briefir some of Us circam ataneta of his hypothetical ckarge. The Hon Pierre 8oule attack* me by a supposition, and not an allegation Why not ? He had the letters ?which I aidressed to him, ani to woioh he allude*, Wa own Dcsseaeion. fie at least knew their contents ?ntire He knew alio, or he ought to have that no CI. arc ? d'Allaires tul inter in could ever entT upon a correspondence of tbat nature wlta the appointed to hla legation without referring every paper immediately up to the government which i? over both, m.nA that it wee hi* duty so to do. . , If there were any treason. If there were any Ituamous trade to be brought to Hgbt by the publication o tiios. letters, Mr. Soule must have known it already. But I he makes no alhgktion. He never made any to though he was for two months in constant mte.course with me, and with those letMrs in bis pocket. Jn absence, however, he now put* fo-war l a Und ot plea to the oountrj, meant to do me injury, in the form of a supposition, in the public pies*. His supposition i* "ftVust the correspondence to which hs alludes may now appear, so that the public, to which he h?s despe rately appealed, may judge for it?elf. Hippy will It be lor hm it the same vsrdict which be has aollolted against ml Jhall not be found against himself. Hs doubts, or affects to doubt, whether I have fulfilled my obllgationi as an officer, because he has not understood his own. We are at difference, nit because I have failed to him, but because be ha* tailed to his duty. Neverttteless he not bern lacking bo mucb in the tact of a d.plonaii tist and tbe knowledge of what belonged to his position aa In the simple inspiration of a tree patriotism. The Hon. Pierre Soule Is a Vrenchman It is nothing to bis discredit, nor do I intend it as any reflection upon a nobis p&tion; but, the fact being so, It would be, per haps too much to expect fram him the same throb of patriotic feeling for America which moves the hearts or those born upon her soil and nurtured among her hills. And even If his devotion to America were greater than that cf hir own sons, still the pwsions of a Fiench re volutionist which run in his blood are constantly striv ing and it may be that sometimes they b(?ve suffotated his'better judgtneht In the affairs of my country- *??> bas sympathised, perhaps, too deeply with thone who conspire against the internal peace ot (ranee to be able to appreciate a tiuly American policy. , . I reveal no secret The proat U stamped by himself upon the whole hi.tory of hi# mission. >rom the day of bis arrival to the day of bis departure from Europe, the interests of America in his hands have not ceased to feel that Influence, and be himself J1" sawl it. Enough of his correspondence has been printel to snow "nS'iiq^&tude of hi* spirit, also, and his resentment ?gainst ^nation at whose court hi* po.itron bad co.n* t, be insupportable, tad him to desire wy, and perhaps ti twlieve that whatever be might do to foment it was con SSUSSwilhSr honor and the interests of the Unite Stakes His judgment was clouded, elae why that Ion . series or bis mots? El? wby coald he not see bahinl the eh ado* of bs own personality tbe true sentiment! of tbe Spanish people; their sympathy for the Lnitod State*, and thtir desire to arrange all subjects of difference be t. hear witness. Spiin, through all ber misfor tnnM has preserved an mdomiUble independence of f^etm?, and Sbe quality of not being ^sily fr^btened. So Icdi as ths SpaniBh people have a voi >e In their own SiSltn iwd not fear toe exercise of an undue fnflnence in their concerns on the part of any foreign ^TbJ'alternatlve In which the Hon. Pierre Soale Is Jdttt country 1* sad ini^. d. Either in two tmis of htudy and obiervaUon he has rightly compre hendod nothing of what was passing ?n Spain, nothing of wu.4 qDfi ni?r^? think and fsel, or he has doceiT?^ J?? air^ana th^government of the United States He told you tbat the sale of the island of Cuba by Spain wa? probable, and he ought to have known that under his menaces, at least. It was Impossible. Tbe corernment at Washington cannot divine what ? ?passing Ua foreign countries, ana for tnat very reason it Minister would nit have needed to make hi* journey to Oitend it be had informed ^M^ern?ent correctly By transmitting erronwus information he compromised your government before what did be rely? That very Cortes to which he vriahed to apMal, did it no^ tho first tlm* he appeared within ltn chamber, rise spontaneously and unanimously in hU pre^nce, the exact reverse of his app.i rent^pectationar W as there one voice, one vote to S^e toeTligbeet color to his representations? Yet h? ought to have known something, at least, o. wha wm treating at the Congrees of Ost*nd. If he did not, u u *md and If he did, ?lr, it Is sadder still. I am MT'uaded that he Aid not knoe; for not only has he not^dvanced one step during bis whole mistion to ?Ition of thut island hopeless. I (So not propOM lo speak of anything which occurred during the time that I vu a subordinate officer, which ii not already established by the printed correspondence of the Minister, or from other sources, la well known to the woi'd. The country haa understood that he undertook, and ?followed up, aa far aa he was able, a system of menace and pteesuie upon the Spanish government, who*e ob ject wax either to drive Spain into a war with us or to a icrced aale of the island of Cuba. It baa heard that in pursuit of this end he employed Beans unused in honorable diplomacy and discreditable to the dignity with which he was inverted, aad that he thus drew down upon himself the universal indignation of the Ppamsh people. It haa seen, however, th*t he was treated with mnch forbearance, and met by the Qrm determination to preservs peaceful relations with ui, in ?pite of his efforts, until such times as he and bis policy shonld be out of tne way, and liberal Spain might show us ker friendship without dishonor. It haa aloo understood that when the affair of the out rage upon the Black Warrior at the Havana was put in his hands, with a claim for reparation, he took hold of that question and managed it, not so as to obUin the jast reciesa which was sought, bnt so as to obstruct and imped* the success of the reclamation* of the American government: and that, wnilst he acted thus on ons side, on the other he persisted in declaring to the government at Washington that no arrangement of that question or ?f any other subject of our complaints with t'ptin was practicable even, for months after I had informed him that the Spanish government were desirous to arrange that question and all others. Meantime, I faithfully discharged my duties as seore tary of this legation, seeing with pain how be converted his mission of peaoa and the settlement of difficulties into a turbulent game for the satisfaction of old bites, for seconding the projeits of fill buyers, or for the in dclgsnce of personal caprices. I suffered then and kept ailent, makicg to himself alone observations con :erning flvSMri. Tbe treason was his It there were any ; the loyalty wai nine by my alienee. But when, at length, the Hon. Pierre f?oul?- abandone i this legation, and I became Charge d'Affslres at the mo went when the popular in'iignetinii against him was a rts height. I had ahigher duty to perform. It would not become me to speak of bow I have performed th?t duty; bnt a brief view of hii conduct at that time, and of the position in which it placod mo, I beg leave, air, most re ?pectfutty to preeent to you. f)nrii>g that period Mr. Soulr not only neglected him self the instrnctiena of the SecreUry of State, when they Interfered with his own purposes, but be also pre tended to direct me to neglect them, he not being at the time in the exercise of hia function* of Minister at Mad rid, nor recognized in any capacity by the gptnish gov emnoent. He tbua placed me apparently In the alterna tive either of failing in my duty to my government or of precipitating a personal rnpture with himtelf, which at that moment wonld have bean equally detrimental to Its service. If I have found the meins to avoid both, recognising an authority which ho had not, obeying di rections which he had no right to give, whilst tlrowmg upon htm the responsibility of what he might dire it, humbly soepting. in my official form and intercourse with him and with this government, the tone and bearing of a subordinate, when in fast I had then no nuporior ei oept la Washington, I trust that yon, sir, and tbe coun try wtl understand that by to doing I wm better abl? to carry out the spirit of the instruction* of the Besr* tary of State, whilst I might lay before him also proof* of the true condition ?! our iffaiti with Spain, vital in tbtir importance to our interests anil our honor. This course pave me the power alio to preserve the daeoram of this legation as far a* posslole from the coasequencai ef his errors. I would have put nothing on record against him. 1b?re is not a lis* in any official communication of mins, either to this government or to our own, whiah harms him. Hi? person sod bin dignity as a Minister of the l uited States are perfectly covered in every syllable. His minion tn ?pa<nl<i not a bright page in the history of American diplomacy. I have usea every means coa riMrnt with the service of the country, In order ttiit it ebould never tee the light , ard if it is now read by the wcrld.I with you, sir. and the country to understand that it is 1 torn circumstances over which I have no con trol. The Hoc. Pierre Sonic thought proper to suppress an important c en patch from the (kcretary of State concera lug the afla r of the Black Warrior, intended for ths Spanish government, during the space of live months, I was able, however to prevent the evil effects or that projecting and I did so. The i roof is, that within a u.itmght after his aeparture, on the aOth of August, I bud procured from tbe Spanish government a prupoti tion of a satisfactory character for tbe complete setile nn-D* ol toat all ni r, whose final adjustment was impeded at that time only by the necessity I felt under ?f not ad dressing an official note upon that subject to tbo Spanish Mooter, in order that my conduct should not coallict 00 ciaily with that of Mr. Soulo. You ?nd tbe country are now aware that this adjust ment w *s at length happily accomplished within a short time alter his final departure on the second of February last, in entire conformity with the wishes of the Secre tary of State. 1 procured also a proposition fjr the settlement and immediate payment of alt claims, involving private in teient*, which hal been presented by either government to the other since the yeur 18o4, by means of a conven tion similar to that concluded with Great Britain on the 8th of Kt-bruary, 1858. A little later 1 procured also an overture, whoss good faith 1 cannot doubt, for the negotiation of a great treaty, conceding immense benefits to our commerce, and se< xii ivg the prcmpt and complete protection of the political, religious and social rights of our citizens in future in every portion of the Spanish dominions, in consideration for timilar benefits conceded to Spanish subjects and their Ctmmene by the United States. I ought not to speak more clearly of this subject here, but I will say that I did not mention it to Mr. Soulc because of the bad result of that frank course in the case of the other two, and in order that he might not take measures to impede its realiza tion. Meantime, tbe Hon. Pierre Soule, not content with re ceiving tbe dup icate'pipers atfdres?ed to himself, dared also to Intercept in Paris tbe official corresp ndence of the Charge <! 'Affaires of the United States at Madrid with the Secretary of State at Washington, addressed to that officer on important business, and bearing the seal of this Legation, then in my lawful keeping. I learned trie fact immediately, and though 1 could net prevent him from representitg at Washington that vhe honor able propositions of the Spanish government were a faith!*** and hol'ow mockery, meant only to deceive us, still those overtures went on and were put on record. Was there a spy at that time in the service of the United States? If to, who was It? Who carried on that infamous trade? Sir, I prefer to believe that there was only an officer, whose ideas of his dnty were mis taken irom whatsoever cause, but whose influence upon our affairs was lamentable to tbe last degTee. Gut there is another incident which ought not longer to be concealed. At the time when he had already resigned his commission, and was about to take final leave of this court, the Hon. Pierre Soule dared attempt to seduce and cajole me into an aban donment of my pout and duty, for the seeming purpose of thus procuring the appearance of a rapture of diplo matic relations with this court ? a demonstration in open conflict with tho wishes of your government, and which might have proved at that moment unspeakably calamitous. At that critical moment he conceived the project of closing this legation, of leaving it if possible without a representative, of lowering its honored arms and placing its valuable archives in the keeping of an un authorized agent, or in the hands of the representative of another foreign power. If I have resisted him, foiled hi* cunning, and undone his work, 1 have done so honorably and fairly, abusing no confidence, failing in no duty. He made no disclo sures to me of his secret operation*. He did not ask my aid. Still it is true that I knew more of him than he was aware. Tbe greatest part of his operations cam a to my knowledge in hi* absence, because, from the mo ment that the responsibility of affairs devolved upon me, 1 considered it my first duty to be well informed con cern ng him and his movement*. Yet at that very time I spoke to him plainly, and counselled him as I should wish to be counselled in like circumstances. If he has attempted to deceive me, and failed; if he hs* believed me lis dupe, and I was not; if he thought me hoodwinked, and nevertheless I perfectly understood what was going on about me, that, sir, i* his own fault, not mice. Deceit is no part of good diplomacy. It is a bad arm, and apt to cut the hand tbat grasp* it. If he ha* sown the wind, who has be to blame u God has sent him for its truit the whirlwind? I will not judge his motives. I rather believe that in his whole course his judgment ha been in error. But if it has not been, then he, sir, has bsen ths traitor, net tome ? tbat matters little? but te the interest* of the United States of America, confided to hi* hands? that conntry which received him in it* bosom when an exile and nurtured him with predilection. Whether be knows it or not, he bas labored to involve that oo un try in a motiveless foreign war: he ha* labored against her peace in tbe interior a* well as the exterior; against her most sacred interests, against her commercial prosperity, and against her national honor. I do not wish to prooe tbe inner thought, which perhaps be does not con f ass even to himself, nut to tbe President and to every good Ame rican I say. God help us if ever the existenoe of oureher Uhed Union should come to depend upon the policy or wishes of the Hon. Pierre Soule I The question is not between individuals; it is between tbe policy of urgisg the United State* of America, by every means and every artifice, into an nnjust foreign war, whose ultimate issue is indeed dark, b-ut whose present dishonor and calamity are certain, or, on the other band, of preserving an honorable peaoe, with the rich sdvsntnges and fruits of peace. War with Spain ha* no motive which can be avowed ; but the policy of war cannot go on without the sem blance ot a cause. It cannot be made without the co operation of ?d'plomacy and intrigue The Presi dent and people of America mast be deceived, or it 1* impossible. But, on the other hand, it is undoubtedly true, sir, that whatever be the momentary incident* which the especial position of Cuba, threatened by a midnight in vasion from our own shore*, may occasion in oar com mercial intercourse, there are none for which the m?an* of diplomacy, exercised in good faith, are insufficient; and If a wheel of tbe system should be lacking, it may be added. Since tbe return of the Hon. Pierre Soule from Europe error has gained gronnd. Tbe calumnies which be may otter, and the arts to which he may bave recourse, for the purpose of discrediting what I have felt it my dnty to lay before the Secretary of State concerning his po>ley, have no adequate correct ive from me at this distance 1 have the honor, there fore, to request, if In your better judgment I* should be cosnpatible with the interest* of America, that yon will cause to be published to the oonntry, as soon as they can be pr> pared, copies of every line which 1 have writ ten to the government or any of its members, offi cially or unofficially, directly or indiroctly, concern ing affairs from the day of the arrival of Mr. Soulc at Madrid to the day of the date of this paper. I pas* the matter over to the direat action of tbe President and tbe American people, in entire confidence that the intelligence ef tbe nation needs no more than a full knowledge of the facts tn order to judge rightly, not my oonduct only, but the infinitely more important question as to tbe merit* of tbe grave matters upon wliich my humble influence baa been exerted. I have the honor to be, sir, with sentiments of the highest respect, your moat obedient servant, HORATIO J. PERRY. Legation of th* Uhithb Status, Madrid, April 27, 1866. PoM? Intelligence. TBS BATE ABANDONMENT CASE POtHTONED. Tbe examination In the cm* of Georgiana Matilda Bate, (gainst John Henry Bete* of Hudson street, for abandonment, which was set down for yeiterda y After noon, was for tome cause or other adjourned until the 3d of Judo next, the ease baa created oonaiderabie in terest, particularly as tbe defendant has been so leaf a resident of this city, and la rexpectably married, and baa a large family of chili ran growing up areund him; while tbe fair accuser, on ths other hand, Is also ver y respectably conn?:ted, having letters of introduction (ram the first families of London, and has, she mji, been in search of her faithless huahand for nearly tvan tj jearr. Great anxiety is therefore felt by the friends of both partiea aa to the probable reanlt of the exami nation before Justice Connolly, which will be very Interesting. ABKKflT ON SUSPICION Of GRAND LiBOKNT. A young man named Charles Delk waa taken Into cut tody yesterday, by tbe Fourteenth ward police, charged with having stolen <90 in gold coin and bank bills, from Joseph Brown, of 263 Elizabeth street. It is alleged that I>eik broke open the trunk of the complainant and ex tracted tbeicatb therefrom. He waa taken before JusUoe Urood, at tbe Essex Market police court, where he pro tetted hit entire innocence of the theft, but was, never theless, held for examination on the charge preferred against him. OHABOE OF BOAT STKALINO. Two men, named John Halleran and James Welsh, were arrested by officer Mason, of the Ninth ward pclloe, charged with bavieg stolen a row boat, valued at $80, the property of John Kelly, ot 86 Hamersley street. The complainant stales, that missing bin boat from the pier foot of King street. he made search for it, end, after tome time, fonnd it in the possession of the accused, who were immediately arrested, at his suggestion. Justice Brennan. before whom the accused were brought, com mitteil them in full lor trial on charge ?( grand larceny. TUB CASE OF UN. ARD MRS. SCIIAKRK AND HENRY LEI*. We noticed, a tew dayt sinoe, , the arrest of thete par ties, on suspioton of larceny. No evidence whatever ap pearing to sustain the charge, they were on Monday <ii? charged by Jnatice Osborne. A locomotive on the Lake Shore railroad last week ran into a flock oi abeep in Erie county. Ohio, and destroys ? p pwards of riityef th?m. The New Steamship Ango, for Havre. Thia magnificent strainer, jnit completed for the New York and Havre Steamship Company, will shortly occupy bar berth down town, and be epen for the iaipectlon of the public previous to aailing for Havre. She waa built by Messrs. Weatervalt k Son a, under the superintendence of Capt. William Skiddy, her deaigner. Her principal dimenalona are 300 feet on the upper or apar deck, 262 feet between perpendiculars, 40 feet 4 inches beam, 67 feet 6 inchee over aU, 31J? feet whole deptb, with 4 decks By regiater, the ahip U 2,280 tons, and 3,200 carpenter's measurement. The material* of which ahe is built are of the best kind. Her floor timbers join cloaely together, forming one solid maaa out to the bilge, and extending the whole length of the ahlp. Her frames are diagonally briced with iron at an angle of 45 degrees both ways, and all thoroughly fastenad. The thick ceiling nnd clamps are all square fattened? ?hat is to tay, have four bolts in each frame, through every plank, in addition to which the ceilings and damps are bolted vertically between every frame, adding greatly to her longitudinal strength. The deck frames are well secured with lodging and hanging knees, bolted through the sMe and clinched. The eoginea (which were built by Stillman, Allan & Co., of the Novelty Works), with the boilers and coal, are enclosed between water tight bulkheads, wall caulked, extending up six feet above the load line, ren dering the ahip, in case of injury by collision, compara tively safe. The engines consist of two oscillating cylin ders, 65 inches diameter with 10 feet stroke? one forward and one abaft the shaft. Instead of a centre shaft (so often disabled in double engines), Mr. Horatio Allen has introduced the drag-link to couple the two engines, the performance of which, on her trial trip of thirty hours, and some rough weather, was very satisfactory. There are two long flue boilers, two of Worthington's steam pumps of the largest size used, so as, in case of accident from leakage or fire, to obtain the greatest facilities of pump ing known in any sea going steamer. There is also an independent boiler for Pirsson'a fresh water oondensors. The whole of these are enclosed between water-tight bulkheads. Capt. Lines has devoted his whole time to supervising the details throughout the ship, which are probably as complete and as commodious and comfortable as any yet fitted in this country. Commencing on the spar or upper deck, forward, are seen Brown's patent anchor gearing, stated to be the most efficient apparatus for working cables and aachors at pretent known, combining strength, security, and great saving of room and labor. It was put in operation during the trial trip, at Sandy Hook, when the anchor was weighed with the greatest ease. From the foremast, going aft, are several covered stairways, leading down to the different cabins, with large skylights. By the mainmut la a house, protecting the main stairway, containing cushioned seats for passengers? abaft this is a range of large skylights and one of Brown's patent capstans; on the after part of this deck (300 teet long) is a circular house protecting the helmsman, with a stairway to the dining saloon, a stats room for the captain and one for the first officer. In the centre is a sitting room, from which is entered by folding doors a convenient smoking room, containing card tables, and a private passage on each side to the water closets, ihis whole deck is en. closed with strong loeust stancheons and rail, and a gal vanized iron netting, imparting a very light and airy appearance. On the outside are suspended eight large life boats (Francis' patent), fitted with oars, sails, water casks, Ac. On the main deck, commencing and descending by the stairway aft, you enter the dining saloon, 100 feet long, with open galleries amidships, enclosed by a handsome polished railing, over which, on the spar desk, are the large skylights, feeparting light and air threugh these galleriss down on to the next deck, with beautiful effect. A double range of hard wood polished tables, with cush ioned seats, covered with crimson plush, extend the whole length of the saloon. Over these tables suspended are shelves or racks, containing the different cut glass and bottles required at table. Over each table Is also ?uapended a beautiful French oarcel lamp. The bulk heads on eltheT side of the saloon are all of the most recherche woods, assorted and highly polished. They are intersected by alcoves with circular arehes, leading to a suite of state rooms communicating with each other. Each aloove has a large light opening through the side of the ship; also one in each state room. These rooms each accommodate twe persona with berths, sofa and toilet fixtures. Advancing forward you paaa the mainmast and stairway. On the right you enter the ladita' soloon, tastefully decorated with table, cushioned seats and mirrors. This opens into a private boudoir or dressing room, adjoining which are three water closets ana a bath room. Oppo posite the ladies' saloon is the captain's room, conve niently and tastefully fitted up. Adjoining, going for ward, you enter the steward's pantry, containing bar room, steam table, plated ware, and cases for silver, 4c., &c., beautifully arranged, anler the direction of Mr. Allen, chief steward. Contiauing on from the ladies' saloon, through an extensive and well lighted passage, leading forward 150 feet, are placed the ice and vegetable houses, between the side of the ship and between the paddle or guard beams, where, la all steamers, It is usually damp. These houaea are entirely out of aight, and communicate with the upper deck. Beyond this the place is occupied with state rooms and alcoves, lighted and arranged similarly to * those already described aft. At the extreme end, forward, is a ladies' boudoir and water cleset. On the left side of this passage are the engineer's room, state rooms, barber's dressing room, and a half circular stairs leading to the upper deck. Crossing by an aleove to the port aide, a similar half circular stairway from the upper deck, conducts to the forward cabin passen gers' dining saloon, well lighted and ventilated, and fitted up with Thompson's patent life tables, and all other oonveniencea similar to the after saloon and pantry. Several state rooms extend forward of this saloon to the storeroom aad forecastle. Proceeding aft through a pas sage, either side is occupied with rooms for officers, ser vants, mess rooms, galleys, ice houses, lamp room, butcher's and baker's rooms, and large cabin galley, and steward's pantry. On the berth deck, under the main dock, Is seventy feet long, lighted and aired by the galleries and sky lights already described. The longitudinal bulk heads are delicately ornamented and beautifully grained in oak, having side sofas, covered with crimson plush. Alcovee intersect every 12 feeet, leading into the differ ent state rooms, all of which are well lighted and ven tilated; in each room are two berths, sofa and toilet fix tures, &c., similar to those above. Rooms communicate where required by familiee. Beyond the forward atairway, leading up to the dining saloon, are rooms for ssrvants, stores, lugftage, Ac. ; between this and forward lower cabin, the spaoe is ocsupied with engines, coal, &c. ; after this, descending by a stairway, between the two half circular stairs forward, you land in a similar saloon or passage to that la the lower cabin aft, with alcoves lead ing to state rooms. There are water closets on each deck, all ventilated on a new plan, with Perley's patent ventilators. The ship is thoroughly ventilated on the outside with Per lay's patent ventilators, between every frame, thus allowing free circulation to the floor timber*. The Arago can asoommodate, comfortably, 260 passen ger*, and carry about SCO tons of cargo, besides 000 tons of coal. Her draught, wtth all on board, will not be more than 17>4 feet. She will sail for Havre on the 3d June, under command of Captain D. lines, late of the Hcmboldt, where her appearance cannot fail to add greatly to tbe fame already acquired by our saip build ers in every branch of their art.

Several letter* were also rtoeived, complaining of prostitute* and house* of ul fame "Many Hundred.," re.id.nt in Church street, tent in a spicy communication to the Major, asking hi* Honor'* interposition in what they considered a very great evil and public nuisance. It ia complained by them that from Keade atieet up to Canal, in Church atreet, there are from twent? to thirty houeei of ill fame*, whiwn prac tices ai. of the "mo*t debated and lewd charactsr."

City Intelligence. TBK CY FBI AMS AGAIN. Sever*', of the police captains were hard at work la*t night in arresting the *treet walker*. Another de*cent was mad in the Park by the Sixth ward police, by order of Capt. Towling, and over twenty giria were arrested and locked ui- for the night Tbl* i* a moat de*irable effort to two the Park from a foul nuisance that ha* long been complained of, and make it a place that a respectable citizen would not dare be soon in after daylight. It belug tark and retired, ha* made it a favorite "cruiiing ground," a* it in termed, for disreputable women and tbeir mala associates and patron*. Should tbe police continue in their effort*, it will very aoon be ccme a different place. 4mo?g the girli arrested in the Sixth ward fftl one wbo gave her name a* Anna Burnett. She was a tall, handao&ie you*g woman, with mild, soft eye* and flaxen hair, the protected loudly that eh* wa* a decant girl, and seemed quite humiliated and terrified to find herself in prison, and amid tbe vilest apecimena of her sex. Captain Dowling waa sent for, and to him ?he made such a piteous and plausible *tory that he wa* constrained to let her off, though the officer who arretted her was posi tive a* to her abandoced character. But Anna looked so innocent, and pleud so earnestly, that the Captain felt he would not be justified in keeping her, and she was discharged, with the admonition to go and sin no mere. Bo much ha* been said as to improper arrests being made, that the Captain thought he would not be justified in running the slightest rl*k. The other girls were of the most degraded kind. Borne were unconcerned, or tried to appear *o; others were sbauicleis and biaien. but the feature* ot all of them ihowcd debauchery of the lowest kind. Worn anl hag gard faces, puffed and bloated, and bearing every mark ol cUeas* and a long course of unnatural dissipation, could be seen on every aide. It waa a spectacle calcu lated to allay any sympathy their unfortunate oondition might inhpiie. In the other wards down town there were but few ar rest*. In tbe Fifth ward there was only one? a girl named Emma Smith, who was behaving in a disorderly Banner. The streets were quiet, and the few women that were out walked along peaceably and created no disturbance. A few vigorous onslaughts, accompanied by instant. conviction and punishment, will make our city, in a little while, very different from what It has been heretofore. 8ijocki.no Accidkst. ? We have to record another accl dent.caused by jumping from the forward part of a city railway car. ThU practice should be prevented by gates upon the car entrances. On Saturday, George Henry Wild, ten years of age, only son of H. N. Wild, Es*., Councilman of the Seventeenth district, stumbled white jumping from the forward part of one of the Second avenue cart, and fell with one of his legs upon the track. The cur wheel caught tbe leg, drew it aldewise upon the tiack and infiicted a lateral wound, running from the ankle nearly to the knee. No bones were touched or im portant blood vessels severed. A colored boy conveyed Ms titer Wlfcl upon his shoulders a distance of si* blocs* to an apoth*e?ry shop, where the wound was sewed up. Thence he was taken to his father's residence in Broome street, and is now doing well, and under |skilftil medical attendance will, we trust, be soon as sound as ever. Be is a very blight, active, Intelligent boy, and bore his sufferings like a hero. EXBllimon OF T1IB SCHOLARS OF WARD SCHOOL No. 44.? Last evening tbe Tabernacle waa densely crowded to witness an exhibition of the scholars of the ward school corntr of Yarlsk and North Moore streets. This 1* the first aSslr ef the kind tnat has ever happened in. the city, and no little Interest was manifested oy those taking part in the exercises Tbe children present were ap piopriately drossed? tbe Utile misses in white, with pink ribbons, and the masters in tbeir best "bib and tucker.

The class under the care of Mist Helen Morgan acquitted them selves well, and did ciedlt to tbeir teacher. Tbe whole aflalr was most pleasant, asd tbe children dispersed at a late bour, satiefied with wb%t they had seen and heard. Firx is First Avmi k? Scffoskd Burglary and Ar boji.? Shortly after two o'clock on Tuesday morning, a fire was discovered in the batcher'* shop occupied by John Smitb, situated at No. 205 First avenue, near the corner of Tnirt-enth *treet. Sergeant Lookwooi, of the Seventeenth ward, wa* near by at the time the smoke wa* seen coming from tbe premises, and aided by Mr. Thompson, the grocer, and others, the fire was extin guished by the application of a few ptils of water. Af ter the fire w** put out it became evident, from the appearance of the burning, that the fire had b?^en kiudlec m a box under the desk in tbe meat shop by the front window. Mr. Smith occupied two rooms in the rear of the store as a dwelling; the dark room between tbe store and back roem be used as his bedroom for hlm nelf and hi* wife. Mrs. Smith wan awoke by the smoke, and called her husband to get up, and found the meat shop on fire. They both e*cap?d by the back door Mr. Smith allege* that the premiaes were entered by the rear wisdow by burglars and ?100 in gold stolen from the bureau drawer; and the robbers before leaving wilfully set fire to the shop, and then left by the street door. Mr. Smith is insured on his stock, household furniture, to the amount of MOO, in the 8tuyve*ant Usurance Company? tbe less he estimates at about $160. The building is lisured for $1,000 in the Bowery Insurance Company. Damage to the building about *5. The case is now under investigation by the Fife Marshal. Fir* at tux Allairr Woua.- The alarm of fire in the Sixth district last night, between nine and ten o'clock, was caused by a portion of the flooring in the boiler shop taking fire. It wa* very soon extinguished by the firemen? damage very trifling It* origin U supposed to have been caused by a red hot rivet tailing accidentally on tbe boards. Pi?isx?TATio!t.? Yesterday the citizens and polise of tbe Tenth ward preeented Capt. Norris, police captain of tbat district, with a gold watch, two chains and a diamond ring, valued in all at about $460. The valua bles were presented by Mr. McKeon, the United States District Attorney, on behall of the donois, as a me mento of tbeir estesm and regard for him as an offloer and a gentleman. TO TBK EDITOR OP THK HIHALD. 1 notice in to-day's Hbuvd, under tbe bead of "Col lision between Fire Companies." amongst other thins*, that " Engine Company No. 21 had a lively fight while proceeding to an alarm of fire yesterday forenoon, through Psarl stre?t, near Centre. " Now, *ir, permit me to *ay. In answer to what I must call ? malicious mlsre i>T**entation. that there was no alarm of flreat all in the district in which 21 runs; that Engine 21 did not torn out at all yesUrday or ?ince; and that not a member of Kcgine 21 wa* engaged in any broil or quarrel whatever, at *nv time aUuded to or since. I feel oompelloi to make thl* statement, inasmuch as of late It appears that tbe members of 21 are made responsible for any little quarrel that may take plaoe, and some one I* alway* on band to circulate and publish anything that may be disadvantageous to them.
