Then m a grand reunion last night of the pro wfneat m or the Know Nothing party of this ?wtoy and State, and onlike all former meetings of tiu party, it wu one to which the press was invited. Tko oo aeion wu the presentation of a splendid and very valuable silver table set to Mr. James W. Barker, the defeated Know Nothing candidate for the New York Mayoralty. It tock ptaoe at the OoHamoie Hotel, Broadway, and ita aicompani meets were a rtcherchi sapper, good wiaes, and -some rather indifferent speeches. Oce fact cime ?out last evening which will somewhat astonish the weak minds of the community, namely, that the Order has been in existence prior to the year 1750, for it is that date which the inssription on the pieces of plate bears. Ia tha absence of Mr. Uilman tne chair was taken by the Hon. Thos. R. Whitney, member of Congress elect from the Wll ?amsburg district. The presentation was made by Mr. Belah Bqnires, of Chenango county, and speeches were made by Mr. Barker; Judge Campbell, of the Superior Cturt; Mr. Thos. J. Lyon, of Orange coun ty; Messrs. Dainahover Rhodes, and James Brooks, of the Expru*. The latter gentleman declared that, in a given case, he was ready to vote for Frad Douglass. Thj meeting broke up at 11 o'dlo^k, af - ter which Mr. Barker was treated ti a ssrenade at his house in Monroe street. For full report see to morrow's Herald. a melancholy case of infatuation and self murder li detailed in onr columns this morning. The vic tim is Thomas Bailey Rosaum, formerly of San Fran, oitco, who blew out bis own brains witn a pistal yesterday, in a hoose of bad repute in Leonard street. The steamship B ack Watrior arrived yesterday from New Orleans and Havana. Oar dates from Havana are to the 27th May. No event of any im pottance bad occurred in the island from the date of onr previous advices. The charter of the Spaiish Bank to be established in Havana had received the sanction of the home government, and the decree authorizing the scheme was published on the 26th. The Diarxo devotes an article to Know Notbingism ' from which we make an extract.' Tbe letter of onr correspondent contains the current news. Additional news from Bermuda to the 27th of May has been received. Governor Murray opene i the session of the Colonial Parliament on 22d ult. The Bermudian of the 22d ult. haa the following news items:?" The American steamer Osprey wdl not, it is said, return to tbese ielacd) and th9 Wea . indies? the company owning her having been dis solved. The annual meeting in behalf of Wesley an missions, which was held yesterday, was very numerously attended. Tne report was read by the Bev. R. Duncan. Me4Bra A. M. McKmnew, and R.

Daniel Yaughr, a native of Rhode Island, but for the la9t 40 years a resident of Bermuda, aad agel 71 years, died at Bermuda on 16tb of May." Tbe ahip Leopold I., Captain Gebsrding, arrived yesterday from Antwerp, baviog on board 3G7 passengers, tbe majority of whom are reported to be paupets by tha American Consul at Antwerp. The vcesel, by orders of the CommiMleners of Emi gritloD, has been stopped at Quarantine until the proper authorities investigate the tru'h of the eharf es against the passengers, which, If found true, will probably cause their immediate return to the port from whence they cane at tbe expsise of the consignees. The Leopold I. has a cargo of bricks on board, and is bound for Havana. The vessels of tbe llsrtsteiu ArctfJ saarsiing ex pedition are still at anchor at tie Quarantine ground, waiting for favorable weather. Not vi hstanding the inclement weather yesterday a large number of persons, including many eminent pbyticlans, attended the formal opening of the Women's Hospital, a nt>w institution dsaigned for tbe treatment of diseases wholly peonliar to females. A full report of the ceremonies on the occasion is gi-en in today 'a paper. The number of interments at Philadelphia for th3 week *r ding noon yesterday, was 149. The minimum of dtmocrallc rejoicing over a par ty victory u one hundred gans. The maximum in yet to be ascertained. One hundred guns in Jer?y City, 100 guns in Rochester, 100 guns in Schenecu <?y, 100 gnna in Cleveland? the air reverberates with 100 guns of triumph over the election of Wise la Virginia.

The accused was committed to the Tcmba to await the action of the Grand Jury. The frigate Constitution, from the coast of Africa, arrived at Portsmouth, N. H., yesterday. She hw been absent from the United States three years, and will now be put out of commission, and her emir paid off and dlaobarged. Cotton was less active yesterday, but prices were Arm, with sales of alout 4,000 bags, the market ekwieg in flavor of sailers. Common grades ot State flour were Cjc. a 12c. p?r barrel lower. Wheat was firm, but nominal. Indian orn was inactive, and sales limited, without material change in prises; Wettern mixed inclined to droop, while prime white tad yellow Southern were firm. Park was easier, and the turn cf the market favored purchasers. Freights were dull for English ports, as well as for most places on the Continent. A cargo of 2,300 bar rels of pork was engaged for Toulon, probably on ?eoou&t of the French government, at $1 per barrel. The city continues remarkably healthy and free of epidemic dieeaees. We learn fron the official report of the City Inspect that there were but 399 deaths duiiog the past week, vis : 77 men, 70 women, 146 beys, anl 106 girls.

Good Advice. We transfer to our columns this morning a chapter ol editorial commentaries from the leading journals of the new American paurtf, touching the late defeat of the Know Nothings in Virginia, and the duty and the policy of the Order at their forthcoming grand National Council at Philadelphia. These extracts em body much good advice, the natural conse quence of the invaluable lesson administered in the Old Dominion, and we therefore submit these admonitions to all the delegates to Phila pbia for a careful and thoughtful reading, to gether with a word or two of our own. The Richmond Whig with a great deal of good tense, urges the necessity of a practical progrumme, upon great principles, and their public proclamation to the world, considering the machinery of signs, grips and passwords as a matter of trifling moment. The Buffalo Adver tiser, following in the same line of thought, pleads the importance of good candidates, to the exclusion of worthless drones and intriguing spoilsmen, with great effect. The Alban^ Regis ler> in its new position still betrays the weak ness of an incurable party hack, and calls for the extension of its circulation as a matter of the very highest consequence. Its whole pro gramme appears to be the ruling idea among the Albany organs from time immemorial, of making as much money out of the party as pos sible, at all hazards, leaving them to take care of their principles after their own fashion. But the volunteer paper styliog itself the American Organ, at Washington, is an exceed ingly flimsy and silly concern. While its more active Know Nothing coteroporaries are casting about them for the means and measures by which their late terrible defeat is to be re trieyed, and from which a great national or ganization is to be made, this bewildered and incompetent Washington Organ is cyphering up the Irish vote in Virginia, parading its limited circulation before the public, and ut tering its foolish inuendoes against the editor of this journal. We must tell this Organ that it is behind the times. Instead of consulting the policy of its party, ? black mail" seems to be its predominant idea. We are sorry that we can moke no promises of the " black mail" of the next Congress; but if this Organ really can and does support itself, it ought to show a little more pluck and independence upon the great issues of the day, and in reference to the duties of this new party through whose support it is looking for the public plunder. We very much fear, however, that this Organ is a llshy Know Nothing concern, and will ultimately prove to be as faittiless as it is puerile, insipid and ridiculous. The immediate question in hand is this na tional American Council or convention at Pni ladelpbia. It must do something to rep%ir the damages of ths Praise <Jod-Bareboues Parlia ment of Massachusetts and the disasters of the \irginia election, or the Order may as well be disbanded. It is proved that all this mystery and hard swearing against the Pope of Rome Irish Catholics and adopted citizens, is all rutn bish aid moonshine. A raid against the "poor divils" of Irifh and the " bloody Catholics," may be successful for Buncombe in a town elec tion her# and there, but is hardly worth the candle in any case. For the great Presidential campaign nothing will avail except an organi zation and a party platform broad enough and stroDg enough to support the Union, the con. stitution, and the substantial practical interests of the American people in the management of the government. Before a new dynasty can be established at Washington, the existing dy. nasty must be supplanted. And what, then, is the true plan for the consolidation of a new and overwhelming national party ? The history of our political partieB au<l their mutations lor the last fifty five years furnishes the answer. The administration of the elder Adams was superseded by a republican combi nation upon a platform of hostility to bis rigid an ti- republican policy. The adminis tration of the younger Adams was over thrown in the same way by a democratic national reunion against the weak and salient points of his policy and his Cabinet, and upon a general demand for "retrenchment and re form." Upon the same plan, the mighty com bination and fusion of factions and parties of 1840 swept away the administration of Van Buren, in a deadly war upon his financial ex cesses, his defaulters, peculators, and his whole catalogue of bad luck, bad management and insatiable spoilsmen. The same policy of oppr sition carried James K. Polk and Gen. Taylor into power, and Mr. Pierce owes much of his triumph in 1852 to the negative milk and water qualities of the feeble administration of Mr. Fillmore. What an inviting field, then, is opened to the opponents of this most faithless, corrupt, imbe cile and condemned Pierce ad uil^t ration, lor national party, upon the common platform of superseding this rotten concern and all connect d with it, with something stronger, sounder v nd better. The democratic jubilee the other night at Tammany Hall betrays the alarm of that party upon this vulnerable point. They perceive that they cannot carry the de*d car cats of this administration through the cam paign of 1856; and, therefore, they propjse to cut it adrift. Cut it should be the fixed pur. pose of the opposition, is a united movement, to hold the democracy responsible for Mr. Pieroe, his Cabinet, his acts and his shortcoming*, and to de mar.d upon this plea a complete revolution in the government. In this view, the cry of "retrenchment and reform" would have a defl nite meaning; for the most besotted partizaa spoilsman cannot suppose there is any excuse for an existing peace expenditure of eighty mil lions a year. Let the National Council, then, at Philadel phia p.j.ced iii Liu badaud of iii3 org .uui , t oo of a groat nation*! American party, ht a practical way, according to the teachings of experience and the principles of common sense, and they may achieve great and positive re sults. They can if they will. Let them abandon thin scarecrow of the Pope of Rome, this rawheadand-bloody-bones of Jesuitism, this perilous folly of Catholic proscription, this tom-fooleiy of persecution against the poor Irish ; this mummery and flummery of the amendment of rituals and third degrees, this clap trap and blasphemy of dark lanterns and horrid swearing of blind obedience to hungry spoilsmen, and go to work like Americans, with a great purpose in hand, and declare it in the light of day. Let them open their doors, and discuss the great issues of the crisis, not like bate conspirators in a cavern, but like honest men before the world, and make an open or ganization for a dashing forward movement in behalf of a new American party, a new dynas ty, and a new administration, " fresh from the people," upon the common battle cry of "re trenchment and reform," and the result must be a revolution as sweeping as that of 1840. The Virginia election, the Tammany jubilee, the extracts which we give to-day from leading Know Nothing journals, all go to show that this new party, before it can assume a national position, has yet to build up a national charac ter, national principles, and national purposes, commensurate with the demands of the crisis. We think we have pointed out the road to suo cess. We submit the case to the Council at Philadelphia. If they fail to meet the necessi ties of the time, they have only to stand aside and let the democractic party come forward and walk over the course. A Few Words with Mr. Thomas McElratii. ? It is wholly impossible that people can go on from day to day propagating infamous doc trines, undermining religion, and stirring up discord between the various sections of the country, without some notice being taken of the course they pursue. Every man of us here has a tangible appreciable interest in the con tinuance of good government, in the mainte nance of religion, in the stability of the Union* To attack any of these is to attack each citizen individually; their injury is his injury; when they are brought into contempt, he cannot be respected; if they fall, he falls with them. II i who attacks them, in fact, is nothing less than a common enemy. Such an enemy is Mr. Thomas McEtrath, the only resident proprietor and publisher of the Tribune newspaper; likewise, President of the Nassau Bank, and bright light of the Methodist Church North. One is wholly at a loss to perceive what pur pose Mr. McElrath intends to serve in direct ing the course of the Tribune in a channel so plainly detrimental to the interests of the coun try; or how he can reconcile it to his conscience as a Methodist, as a citizen, or as a banker. The fomenting of civil discord is surely not a doctrine of the Methodist Church North. The staid and respectable members of that, chuich are, we are convinced, as solici tous as the rest of us for the continued peace and prosperity of the country. They have read their Bible too faithfully to be un aware that he who endeavors to set his neigh bors by the ears, and light the torch of civil war in his country is as grave an offender against religion as against society. How can Mr. Thomas McEtrath take his seat among these men and join them in their common devotions when the whole energies of the newspaper he controls are directed to a woik which their belief stamps as sinfnl and reprehensible in the highest degree? Bow can he mix with his fellow citizens, when all his apparent labor is devoted to the destruction of their national pease, and the overthrow of that association on which their prosperity depends? Nine- tenths of the lead ing men of New York are connected in some way or other with the Southwest and South. Some are themselves owners of property in these pections of the country. Others hare friends and relatives who are. Others do busi ness with Southern men. The well being of alt depends in some measure on that of the whole country, including the South. How can Mr. Thomas McElrath look these men in the face, when, if ths aims of his journal were accom plished, or if it had sufficient influence to carry them even partly into practical action, the South and Southwest would be irreparably in jnred, and all connected with it would suffer in proportion? But if so singular a course as that of the leading proprietor of the Tribune is singular in a citizen and a Christian, it is a far more puzzling riddle in a banker. Of all the insti tutions of civilized society, bank* are the most sensitive to political disasters or narrow legis lation. If any legislative measure injures a country it is the banks who feel it first. For their welfare is founded on the public credit, confidence, and general good will among the people. Yet here is a b inker, the president of a bank, who devotes the whole force of the newspaper he owns to the enactment of a law which is calculated to ruin one of the most im portant branches of trade in the State, and to effect a depreciation of from ten to fifteen per cent on all city property. The same maa de votes the same power to severing the bond ot fraternal onion between the North and the Souths to the consummation of a political re volution which would inevitably annihilate the trade and business of New York. Do the share holders of the Nassau Bank ever reflect on these things? Do they never think that the very power they entrust to Mr. Thomas Mc Elrath tor their common benefit may be actual ly employed in endeavouring to promote mea sures which are sure to invoke their Injury and the ruin of the bank ? Tolerance is goe>d ; it ia excellent; Mr Mc Elrath has a right to his opinions. But when a man frankly tells us it is hU conviction that we ought to be ruined instead of pro*perom, fighting instead of working, the least we can do is not to help him to carry such convictions into effect. All the New York hotel*, the Astor House, Metropolitan. <tc , Ac., have been great friends of McEliath and his corps of de. structives, giving them champagne and oysters in any abundance. How do the hotels like the socialists now ? Examination at West Powr? The examina tion at West Point has begnn, and we may expect to hear shortly of the performance of the youths who are to be the hope of the United States in case of war. There will be, no doubt, the usual camping out, marching, target prac tice with heavy artillery, and so forth ; and the neighbourhood of West Point will doabtlesi be thronged with visiters for the next fortnight Ui fco. The will Jl>c Will ftvith MXiiuf. Law fok thb Liquor Men. ? Hitherto the temperance fanatics have boasted that thej have bad all the law on their aide; bat it seems that the liquor dealers' tarn has come. In Friday 'a Tribune appears an appeal trom the Careou League to the people of the city and county of New York, to raise "not only $40,000, bat a larger iam," for the purpose of prosecut ing those whom the managers of the League may choose to consider offenders against the Prohibitory statute. The appeal alleges that the liquor dealers have raised $40,000; and bases on this statement its demand for a larger sum, in order to employ counsel and bring all the machinery of the law to bear to prosecute. Considering the motley ingredients of which the population of this city is composed, this appeal might be formidable. Forty thousand dollars and " a still larger sum" can achieve much. Few men would care to have the blood hounds of the Carson League on their heels, with forty thousand dollars to back them. Indeed, almost all of u, In our private experience, have been witnesses to the persecution and rain of some unfortunate wight who had the ill lnok to involve himself In a lawsuit with an adver sary whose means? though less, perhaps, than forty thousand dollars ? were quite sufficient to enable him to crash a poor man. Forty thou sand dollars judiciously Invested in lawyers' fees and spies' fees, could Inflict Intolerable Inconvenience upon, If they did not procure the rain, of any man of moderate fortune in the city. We say, therefore, that the appeal of the Carson Leagae, addressed to a community containing many men with more money than brains, as well as many hardened fanatics, might have been formidable. Happily for the city, the common law has wisely provided for such cases. All the com mentators, from Blackstone downward, concur In affirming the principle of law, that he who excites a malicious prosecution against his neighbor iB guilty of the misdemeanor called barratry, and mast be punished accordingly by line and Imprisonment. We And that the offence was specially noticed, and a penalty provided therefor, in consequence of tne trouble ex perienced from the knavish wiles of certain English attorneys, who set their neighbors by the ears in order to get fees tor conducting the stilts.
These attorneys appear to have been the lineal progenitors of the Carson League. They strove to get up prosecutions against their neighbors for breaches of this or that law, just as the Car son League does for imagined breaches of the Prohibitory act But we do not hear that the attorneys of Westminster ever appealed to their fellow countrymen for " $40,000 or a larger sum" for the purpose of fomenting litigation. This difference, however, Is not material, and if any thing, aggravates the offence of the New York lawbreakers. We therefore expect that the liquor dealers will lose no time in meting out to others the measure that will be meted oat to them : that they will instantly take steps for the institation of criminal proceedings against Thomas L. Carson, S. A. Beers, H. Roy f, J. C. Burdick and as many other mem bers of the League as can be discovered, on a charge of barratry. There can be no question of the result 5 and it cannot but be beneficial to teach these gentlemen that the law, which they desire to use as an instrument of tyranny, is a two-edged weapon which can be turned against themselves. A Funny Book? Foster ? Gaslight 'Foster as he has been called? has been beguiling the hoars in one of the prisons In Philadelphia by writing a very curious book, which he calls "New York Naked." He walks into the edi tors in great style, stripping off their disguises, ehavipg off their whiskers, cutting off their moustaches, pulling off their coats, and show ing them precisely as they appear to be. It is a regular cut and thrust concern. Not Right. ? The Buffalo Courier says that the New York Herald is deserting the Kaow Nothings. This is a mistake. We never be longed to the Know Nothings. We have taken the Know Nothings hro our training school for a few months, to teach them their paces. But if they do not Bhow a little more docility and attention to' our instructions we shall turn them out,jM let them shift for themselves. We will have nothing to do with any political animals who are not sensible, docile, useful, practical and full of grit. Garrison a Prophet. ? Old Garrison, of Boston, the great chief of nigger worship and nipger worshippers, says tnat Kansas will never be a free State; and he gives four sub stantial reasons why it it will, as long as this Union lasts, be inevitably a slave State. The great nigger worshipper is right in his predic tion; and the smaller nigger worshippers all over the country may rant and rave as much as they please, but they cannot change tne de&tinyof Kansas. A Hint For Barnum. ? The Louisville Demo crat thinks that Barnum belongs to the Know Nothings. We do not know how that may be. but we rather think that the democracy will before long belong to Barnum. Barnum is fa> mous for picking up all broken down animals, strange curiosities, old vertebra, or anything that has seen its best dajs. We sometimes think, therefore, that Barnum will exhibit the democracy in his Museum one of these days, before the inauguration of 1857, when George Law is called to the White House. The Crisis Has Come. ? Thns sayeth a Seward paper in Buffalo, the Express. We rather think the erisiB has come for Seward and his clique, for be ween the democrats and the Kaow Nothings in the last election of this State, they will be ground into powder and scattered to the four winds of heaven. Marine Affairs. Licitcn. ? Messrs. Crowell & Colon launched, from their yard at Elizabeth port, N. J., on Saturday, at 11 o'clock A.

The present week will close the season of the La Grange Opera company at the Academy of Music. The Mason commenced onthe2lst *?7, under the direction of Mr. Jacobsohn, for whom the artists were engaged in Europe, and Mr. Payne, one of the directors of the Academy. Daring the first week " Lucia dlLammermoor" was given twice, and " Ernani" once, to bouses full enough to pay the veiy heavy ex penses of the troupe. (It is said that Mme. La Orange has 92,600 per month ? moie salary than is given to the President of the United States, and four times as lunch as that of a Cabinet Minister.) During the next week "Ernani" was given twice and the "Barber of Seville" once. The "Ernani" audi ences were rather thin, but the " Barber" on Friiay last drew a better house, although not a fall one. On Monday evening we are to have the " Purltanl" of Bel lini, the graesrul melodies of wbish have always male it a favorite with the majority of Amsrican opera-goers. Mirate is the Atturo, La Grange the Elvira. On (lit, that this company will soon commence a concert tour, visiting Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and other cities. While the La Grange troupe has been delighting the amnoitteurt at the Academy, feteflenone, Vestvall, Brignoli, Badiali, Bolcloni and others, unJer the direc tion of Messrs. Phalen and Colt, with the Chevalier Wikoff as commander In-chief, bave been giving the "Trovatore," "William Tell," "Luerezla Borgia" and "Maria di Rohan," to full houses at the Boeton theatre. This troupe had a prosperous season of nine weeks at the Academy, to which establishment the artists will return after the expiration of their Boston season, which closes with this week. We have thus seen a continuous season of nearly three months at the Academy, made successful by effi cient management and the production of new operas. With more novelties the season may be continued far into midsummer. The English Opera Trocfi at Niblo's intend to give six different operas daring this week, beginning with "Fra Dlavolo" to morrow evening. From Post ac Prcick.? The brig B. F.

Meanwhile the besUged force (now reduced to a man and a boy) betray a moat profound lndiffer?nce to the preesnce of the besieger*^ and pass their time in washing the decks, and mending the eld ropee and spara. Bo rar there haa been no at tempt to cut off their retreat to the mainland, and their aupply of grec and rations is therefore safe while the grocery stores continue open. lhsre is a rumor afloat that tbe blockading force hare run short in their whiskey rations, whieh will no doubt necessitate their removal to tbe Navy Yard Boon, aa a (apply of Dutch courage la lndi?pennable to the proper performance of their arduous dutiee.

City Intelligence* The Cznbcs Marshals ?A meeting of the Csnsut Marshals was held last night at the Broadway House, Mr. C. F. Oakley in the chair, and D. 0. Henderson eat ing as secretary. The subject of the small compensa tion they axe to receive (two dollars per day) waa again the cause of complaint. It appears they have petitioned the Common Council, and they have reason to believe their request will be favorably considered, as many of the Aldermen agree with them that the pay Is insuffi cient. A letter was reoeived from the Secretary at State, in reply to a communication of the Chairman, atatlng that the law would not permit an extension of time specified? twenty- five days. Amotion was mads to take advantage of the obsourity of the third question in their inatruetiona, and not aasess other reai estate than dwelling houses: but this, after eome discussion, was voted down, with the understanding that all the marshala would pursue such course aa they deemed moat expedient individually. They adjourned at a lata hour, without naming a time or piece of meeting. Military Parade or the Sixti-ninth Regihext.? Thi# regiment, under order of CoL Jamea R.
