At ateamship Baltic arrived at one o'c'ock this men tag, from Liverpool, with European advices to fee ldth test. The news is interesting. The details ai the attack upon the exterior works of Beb&sto pol ea dte 7th inat., a brief notice of which was received fey the Asia, show that the enterprise was complete ly successful. The capture of those works enabled fee allies to fire upon the Russian shipping, which was speedily taken into more secure quarters. The latest despatch from Varna states that the French ?loops had been recalled from Kertch, probably to aarist in some great blow against Sebustopol. The feuepa in the Crimea were suffering from clolera. Farther successes of the allies in the Sea of Azoff are reported. Large storeB of provisions have been fentreyed. In Ixradon, the Administrative Reform Association held a meeting at Drary Lane theatre an the 13th, at whioh Mr. Layard delivered a spee h aff great force. In Parliament, the subject of a de. sdmal currency bad been under discussion. Mr. Fllmore and Mr. Van Buren were in London. The fcraer had reoeived every attention. In Spain, fee Car list insurrection was progressing with great at rapidity than the government were willing to ac knowledge. The only Item ot news from Franoe is fee tffloial and professional notification that the feajn ess is in an interesting condition. Consols Were quoted at 91J. Cot son had been quiet, but prloee remained fl m. Breadstuff* werj dull. The stoimaoip Empire City, from New Orleans, win Havana 23d Inst, arrived about one o'clock this morning. She brings no news of importance. Ha tana was qui'e healthy. By way ot New Orleans we have news from the etty of Mexico to the 19th lost. Santa Anna had seturned to the capital, having been defeated by Alvarez, near Menatto, with the loss or five hundred killed and wounded. The revolutionary army, un dee Alvarez and Comonfcrt, had taken Sonort and was in vesting More da. While in the souto the insur gents are advancing towards the capital with rapid march, in the north Monterey still remained In the possession of the revolutionists. A large force of government troops had been despatched to attempt Me recapture, and oor next eccoonts from that re gkm will prcbably briig us news of a bloody battle. Santa Anna is rapidly nearing the close of his' career, and a few brief weeks will scarce y pass ?way before he will be fighting his game cocks in the pi's at Cartbagena with his old ardor. ?hs aewspapers of the capital, in order to divert the goblio mind from the db asters which alnost daily eecur to the government forces, make a great pa Bade In publishing accounts of trifling successes gained over insignificant marauding parties of the enemy. The national or hard shell section of the demo erattc party held a meeting at the Metropolitan theatre last night, ex-Judge Beardsley in the chair. She theatre, which will seat 3,500 persons, was quite felL A great many popular speakers were an aounced, but none of the stars whose names were ?aaeonoed in the bills appeared on the stage. The sesoluUons denounce the Know Nothiags, the Maine law, the administration and the soft shells. Mr. Daniel D. Sickles made the principal speech of fea evening. He made a slight error in his statls ttes, in stating that oat ot 500 or 600 members elected to the late Massachusetts Legislature butone was e member of any other party exoept the Know Kothings. The whole number of members was not quite 400, of whi h fifty or sixty were whigs, one a democrat, and the rest Know Nothings. Our despatches from Washington, though brief, ?m interesting. Mr. WiUon, Commissioner of the General Land Office, received hie dismissal yester day, and immediately eracuated his post. His suo neseor will probtbly be ex-Goveroor Shannon of Ohio. It has been reported that Se;retary Mode! d would resign in the event of WiiBon'a i, and a score or two of greedy expcclarta are ' eagerly waiting to have their anticipations ful d. The speeches of Gw. Davis in Mississippi, it the appointment cf Gov. Roeder and hit Msn in offloe, seems to h?ve greatly nettled the Pre Mdent; but if Davis is firm, of course the President will give in. Secretary Dobbin is so seriously ill as to render his retirement from the Cabinet at an early fey almost certain. P, esidsnt Pierce and Mrs. Pierce left Washington yesterday for the seashore, fer the benefit ef the hea th of the latter. The Maine State Temperance Convention ad journed yesterday, after a two days' session. It wa? fal|y attended, and the resolutions adopted were of fee most ultra politico temperance cbaractor. The ^takers strongly sustained Neal Do# in hi* condact ?t the Portland riot. The regular democracy of j Maine have formally come out in opposition of the prohibitory law, and consequently the speakers directed their efforts mainly agaiqgt the only or imbed opponents to the law in the State. Th# Garrett Smith and Fred Douglass wing of fe? ultra abolitionists held a State Convention at flymense yeaterdav. The design of this gathering i to harmonize the vations cliques of impracti "?? on some common platform of fanaticism. ' for they succeeded in effecting this object is l than we can diarever from the procoedings, feat we bUa the name* of the old bellwethers of the perty ookned flock In Miisiacnusette from among feo delegates mentioned. ^e*?ont Free Soil State Convention met at BarHagton yeaterday. The fueion ticket for State cfeeen adopted last year was re nominated. Toe resolutions were of the well known Vermont aboli ticn tone, tapering off wllh a stiff supporter of the Prohibitory Liquor law. The Massachusetts Know Nothing Convention ts at Boston to-day, and we hope its proceed i wfll at least be productive of more interest i tbe abolition and cold water performances of /win Jay. Among the four Supreme Court Judges of Cou atetiout choetn by tbe legislature of that State yeaterday, was Lorin P. Waldo, present Comtnia ?doner of Pensions. Hon. Chas. J. M Curdy, former ly Chugd dee Affaires to Austria, was one of the unsuccessful candidate*. The ootton market was steady yesterday, with satas of about 1,000 bale*. Common grades of flcur ware dull, without farther change in prioes. A small M of prime white Michigan wheat sold at $2 521. Indian corn sold freely at 97c. a 98o., with Home lots at|l, closing at tbe Inside figures. C anil .arable emtraets were settled for June delivery on private ?warn. Pork was firm, and tended upward. Freights WCWO inactive, m shippers were waiting later Ml) Mti. U Lhnvjpoal wMntMs oon was engaged, and at the close higher rates were do needed. Pnbllt proolsmedon of the Japan treaty has at last been made by tbe President. We giro the document entire in our coumus, enfiaeat rtit e treaty wbioh hM attrao ed bu h universal atteatnn, both at home aod abroad, will bs extensively read. Proceedings hare been commenced la the Marine Court against Mr. Jaoobaohn for salaries for the members of the orchestra of the Ita'ian Opera Com pany at Nib o's theatre. We publish t >day a list of th* vowels launched sloes the lint of the year at the shipyard* of Nee Yoik end vicinity, and alio the numbe ?? and character of thoeo remaining on the stock a. We oaanot report ary improvement la tbis branch of business. The vessels now In course of construction number but sixteen, aggregating leas than nineteen toouiand tons, with no new contracts in prospective. The particulars of the suicide of a young man and young woman in Brooklyn yesterday morning an given in another column. The mystery sorrm tid ing tola sad affair has created considerable sensa tion. Whether they were lovers or married is as yet unknown, bat it appears quite evident teat an attempt Ismaas to affix a cruel reproach upon the unfortunate young female. His Excellency Gov. Myron H. CI irk arrived la town late last evening. To-day he will visit the institutions under charge of the Commissioners of Emigration. They will start from tie Astor House at 10 o'elook A. M. In consequence of recent heavy rains two exten sive breaks have ooenrred on t be Cham plain oanal north of Waterfoid. The Superintendent estimates that ten days will be required to repair these breaches. The Mew Cuban Conspiracy Against the United States?The Finger or England Deep In the Fie. The new conspiracy for the independence of Cuba begins to assume a palpable and defiuite shape. The letter of our Washington corres pondent, published yesterday, discloses the leading particulars of the plot, from which it appears that England is to be relied upon to secure the liberation and independence of the island, upon the important concessions to her of the abolition of slavery, and of bonds for the payment of at least a portion of the debt due to British subjects from the government of Spain. This scheme is not only plausible, but, from the facte and arguments presented by our cor respondent, is positively startling. A more dangerous Bcheine against the naval, commer. cial and political interests of this country in the Gulf of Mexico, could not well be devised. The reason why, thus far, England has been ever ready to come to the assistance of Spain against Cuban rebels and American filibusters, is that their plans have uniformly compre hended the annexation of Cuba to the United States. This would never do. The rapidly la creasing commercial greatness of this republic, on the other hand, it is the interest, the policy and the purpose of England to arrest by all available means. The acquisition of Cuba would give at once to the United States the military command of the Gulf, and such an impetus to our commerce in that quarter, and our social aul political intercourse with the West Indies, Mexico and Central America, as would soou threaten the complete overthrow of British influence, British designs and British intrigues in all those islands ard countries, and the seas which wash them. Hence the policy of wresting from u?, as it were, the Island of Cobs, becomes a vital issue to England, scarcely second in importance to the reduction of the weight and influence of Russia, | touching the balance of power in Europe and Western Asia. This new conspiracy of the disaffected Cuban Creoles furnishes a feasible plan for the perpetual sepnratioa of Cuba from the United States; and a plan, too, more desirable than the abso lute seizure ol the island, fur that would in volve the hazards of a quarrel with France and an immediate rupture with Brother Jonathan. No Euch hazards are involved in this new con spiracy. The Creoles of Cuba are to rise in rebellion against the oppressive government of Spain. This is an inherent popular right which we cannot deny. England is to aid them, on condition that they redeem certain debts of Spain; and with the further condition that wheu free to act for herself, the government of inde pendent Cuba shall at ouce proceed to the abo lition of slavery iu the island. Can we make this a cause of war, with the free soil sentiment of the North holding the whip-hand in the House of Representatives at Washington, and foresworn against the udrai slon of any more slave States? No. Let the bargain be consummated between England and the Cuban Creoles; let the latter, therefore, rise in rebellion, and declare the independence of Cuba, under the auspices of the English gov ernment, and under cover of an English fleet, and Cuba is not only lost to ur forever, but becomes substantially, for all commercial and military purposes, little lss than ai English colony, and her Gibraltar for the Gulf of Mexico. There is only one way by which the absorp. ti?n of Cuba into the United States can bo per petually defeated, and that is the abolition of j slavery. Abolish slavery in the islaud, make it a free negro empire like one eud of Hay ti, or a mixed republic of free whites, blacks ami mu iattocs, like the other end, or a free negro j colony like Jamaica, or a free negro rendezvous I like Canada, and the accession of Cuba, so far j from being any longer desirable to us, will be regarded, especially in the South, as a nuisance and a curse. It will bee >me a source of per petual annoyance, repulsion and antagonism, involving not only the dangers of future aud disastrous foreign wars, but the greater perils toua of servile insubordination and inswrec t'bns in the South. The policy of England is to break down the growing commercial supremacy of the United States, through this institution or Southern slavery. It is our only available point; it iR to us the vulnerable heel of Achilles. We have seen how industriously the English abo litlon societies have been aiding in fomcn'ing and extending the anti-slavery agitation in our Nor hern Stales. To this end Stafford House and its affiliated establishments have been exceedingly liberal in their abolition em issaries, pamphlets, and contributions of ail kinds. In the Gulf of Mexico, on tbeotbjr hand, the government of England has been equally active. From the Jamaica eraancipa tion act, and the intrigues of "the man with the white hatv in the late republic of Texas, down to the present day, the legislation and the diplomacy^of England have been mainly directed against the extension of our Southern boundary and our Southern institution of sla very. Failing of her object in Texa?. it may yet be safely assumed that from Mexico to the Bermudas, the lias secured a barri r agaiuit the further advanoet of this Southern institu tion, excepting the tingle drawback of toe Is and ot Cuba. So now, if Cuba can be cat I off from her "manifest destiny," there is yet a I bope for the continnanoe of the otherwise ex- , pirli'g commercial snpremaey of Eogland. Three things within the past year have Ope rated to give shape and substance to this i^ew con spiracy between the Cuban Creoles arv<l the abo lition is'sof Eogland, including her present Pre mier, Lord Palmerston. The first Is the revival of the anti-slavery agitation am >ng as, apon the Nebraska bill. Secondly, the treachery of tne administration at Washington towards the Cuban Creoles and tbe filibusters ot the late ex ploded com piracy. Thirdly, the official declara tion ol Senor Luznriaga, the late Prime Minister of Spain, that it was the fixed policy of his gov eminent to protect and maintain the institution of African slavery in Cuba. The Netirm-ka agitation raises a cloud of dost and smoke high-, ly favorable to this English scheme for Cuba's indopmderce?the treachery of the administrar tiou has, to a great extent, alienated the Crt oles rom the doctrine of " manifest destiny," aid the pledge of Luzuriaga for the maintenance of slavery may veiy well be oonsidered as having excited the abolition indignation of John BatL After promising, cajoling ai d intriguing with the authorities, both at Madrid and Havana, for several years past, for the emancipation of the slaves of Cuba, it could hardly be expected that England would receive Luzurlaga's declaration without some decisive manifestation of her dis pleasure at the first opportunity. We have here, then, a chain of facts and circum stances, causes and effects, giving a high degree of plausibility and practicability to this new Creole and English programme for the inde pendence of Cnba. Its fulfilment may depeud very much upon the contingencies of this Rus sian war. In the meantime, would it not be well, on the part of our administration, to order another conference upon the subject by our diplomats in Europe, Bimil&r to that at Ostend, with an < tier of, say a hundred and fifty, instead of a hundred and twenty, millions for the peaoea ble transfer of the island to this Union, slavery and all? We submit the question to our Premier, Mar cy, in all seriousness, and would suggest to Lim, confidentially, the expediency of sounding the British government upon the subject, with out loss of time. For us or against us, in all probability the fbture destiny of Cuba, withia the next five years, will be irrevocably settled. We mast be qjiick, or the prize is lost. The finger of England is deep in the pie. Tost Office Mismanagement.?We publish in another column a copy of some correspon dence which has recently passed between the Hen. Horatio King, the first Assistant Postmas ter General, and Mr. F. W. Goliad ay, late Poet master of Lebanon, ia reference to a complaint made in this paper a short time since of the non delivery of'the Herald to one of our sub scribers. In this instance the fact is satisfac torily accounted for by a clerical error in the direction of Ihc cover, and the identification of the surname thus altered with that of another person to whom the paper was sent. This is one of those curious coincidences which some times cauee confusion 111 the best regulated arrangements, and we give the Post Office the foil benefit of the explanation. In the same spirit of fairness we also publish, from the Bos ton Herald, the Post Office version of Mr. Hooper's case which appeared in our issue of the 23d. The Boston Postmaster states that the cause of the detention and non-delivery of his money-letttr, was the fact of the omission by that gentleman to pay tlie postage upon it when it was first mailed. As, however, one swallow won't make a sum mer, neither will these two isolated cases of justification on the part of the Post Office servo to excuse the numerous well founded complaints that are daily made against its management. There is scarcely an individual in the commu nity who cannot contribute some of his owa personal miechances to the general catalogue of grievances against it. Few, however, think it worth the trouble to make any noise about the matter, seeing that the more serious charges brought against the department are incapable of satisfactory explanation. Of this character are the extraordinary facts lately made public with regard to the sale to paper manufacturers of dead letters, with money enclosures to a largo amount. The Connecticut affair, althongh an attempt was mode to rebut the evidence respect ing it, has never been satisfactorily cleaned up; and the more recent case which occurred ia Maryland, and in which enclosures to the amount of $424 were found in letters sold by the Post Office as waste paper, has a3 yet received no contradiction from the department. Let it be clearly understood that it is to the Eastern, and not to individuals, that we charge all these blunders. Judge Campbell, Mr. King, end the other heads of the Post Office, are no doubt worthy aud capable men in their different pursuits, but it icquires some other qualifica tion besides this for the efficient administration of a great public department. It cannot be ex pected that p-rsons who have passed their lives in other avocations should at once, and as if by intuition, obtain all that practical experience ond acquaintance with official details which in this, perhaps more than in any other branch of the public service, are specially called for. No; the whole fault lies in the system itself. S;n<*e i'ie time of Amos Keudall, the Post Office has been rendered a sort of political engine in the hands of pary intriguers. All the offices in the gift of ihc department are now considered merely a? the prizes of zealous partisanships. The conse quence is, that from frequent changes in Its or ganization, and personal inefficiency on the part of office holders, affairs are now m \n ige<l there in a manner which would disgrace the in fancy of the institution. It Is difficult to understand why the same re. fcrming spirit which is carrying out such a severe inquiry into the moral as well as pro fessional organization of our navy?-an inquiry more stringent and more inquisitorial than has ever before been instituted in any country or Jd ery service?should pass over so long the glaring defects and abases of our Tost Office system. It seems to us that there is in the lat ter as wide, if not a wider field for the jealous scrutiny and vigilance of Congress or the peo ple. We would hove the principles on which the Navy Committee is constituted, canied out in eve ry department of the public service. We would have, more than all, an efficient, busi ueES man at the head of the government. Moral c rrectrcss and professional experience should be the tests of a man's capacity for government < mploymeot, and not the prostitution of Ids poll* tical opinions to the service of a party. Until this is more generally the case we shall neither Lave an elevated standard of public morality nor correctness or efficiency in our publlo de pait?sta. Zvm American Oroan at Washington-In VortantChanor.?Vespasian Ellis, of the Kaow j Nothing central newspaper at Washington, h n become tired, yea heartily sick, of organ gn ?l iog. Be retires in disgust, and Mr. Wm. Har well, ofVa, takes his place. This is a sensible change on the part of the proprietors of the pa per. Ellis has been a damaging huckster to the party from the start, trading away its principles for the slimmest po'Bible chances for the pu >lic plunder. His gambling propensities, as lllat trated in bis reckless betting and blattering i during the late Virginia canvass, have, aB we I fear, not only emptied his own pockets, but the pickets and bank assets of a host of his over credulous and confiding friends. Determined tote revenged upon somebody, he jumped from the frying pan into the fire, by pickiog a quar rel with the New York Hbrald-r jump which appears to have finished his organic history. Very well. There are other pursuits still open, in tome one of which we hope the peculiar ge nius of Mr. Ellis may meet with better success. Meantime we congratulate the American party on their new editor at Washington, Mr. Bar well He belongs to that class of modern pr> gretsive men whose administrative talents and practical intelligence in political affairs, have hi retofore been too much overlooked by all parties, in hunting up "venal politicians," broken down lawyers, caucus favorites, and mi litary heroes, big and little. We venture to say that the columns of the Washington Organ will soon illustrate the difference between the late incompetent editor and the new and prac tical man. The antecedents, principles and policy of Mr.Burwell rest upon that conserva tive middle ground of the Philadelphia plat form, which even General Cass approves as the only course for any great national party upon the slavery question. In this view, Sena tor Wilson will no longer be a favorite of the Washington Organ. Let Mr. Bnrwell, upon this platform, go ahead. Academy of Basic?Don Giovanni. Mozart's chef d'amrrre, that brilliant composition which for three-quarters of s oentury has kept s fast hold of tha public favor, through all tha raying changes of fsshion and popular caprlcs, wasprodujad last night at this house to one of the largeat audiences that baa aa yat been assembled within Its walla. The theatre was literally crammed from top to bottom, and hundreds went away disappointed of seats. A more brilliant and imposing coup d'ati than tha scene pre sented itie Impossible to conceive. There are few regular opera goers who are not ac quainted with the history, as well as with.tbe music, of this piecs. It was composed for the Opera at Prague, and was performed for the first time in that city In 1787 The motive lor lta production there wae, curious to ssy, the notion entertained by the com poser that the refined and Intellectaai character of ita music would not be appreciated at Vienna. Tse conclusion would seem to have bean warranted by the fact that even at Rome it did not fully succeed. Pos terity has, however, rendered full justice to this master ly production. In the whole rarge of the lyrical drama, there Is no opera which has attained such universal and enduring popularity, its repetition commandlog, wher ever fine music is appreciated, larger audiencee than can be drawn together by any other piece. There are one or two recent circumstances connected with the history of this work, which enhance the In ter ett attaching ti it. The first English version of it that wae produced, was from the pen of poor Bishop, who. after a long and eminent professional career, late ly died in London in circumstances of absolute indigence. His adaptation, though it had a temp.rary success, wa?, from ite wortblessness, soon consigned to oblivion. A better version wss within the last few years produoed at the Princess' theatre, and this has ever slnea mam tamed its place on the English stage. Last month the original piece was revived with gre* tclat at Covent Garden theatre, the veteran Tamburial, who has always been considered the best Don Juan that bas been seen witbtn the memory of the present genera tion, having been called from his retirement to sustain the part. The representation was one of great Interest, and caused no small excitement. Every one was curloue to see bow the old gellant would impersonate again hie youthful fellies. ?o far as a goodly presence and high pplrits could go, there was the Giovanni of former times ; hut the voice, upon whose tones so many delighted listeners had dwelt, was no longer to he heard. Still, the loss was in some degree counterbalanced by the pleasure which the audience felt In welcoming back again to the stage an old favorite, and by the combined attraction of the splendid talents of Boslo, Mario and Lahlache, a cart for a piece such as la rarely witnessed. Tie cast of the opera last night, although It did not ioclude auch world renowned reputations as those we have just mentioned, was yet the most effective that has ever been seen In this country. With Lagrange aa /.OTlina, Rosa Devriee a* Donna Anna, Siedenberg aa Dcnna Elvira. Moreili as Don Jnan, Mirate aa Don Otta vio, and Rovers aa Lepoiello, we are justified in saying that bo opera could be put upon our stage with atronger elements of suceess. That mgrange should alng tha airs cf her role to perfection wae to be expected from this accomplished artist, hot that ahe should act the part with so much natural graoe and expreeaion we were not prepared for. The impression which at first prevailed that her histrionic were Tar below her vocal talents, has been gradually giving way before the un questionable ability which she has displayed in this way In some of her later rdla. Her "BatU, battl" and "Vedixi Carino' were bcth beautifully given, and frtw down thunders of applause. Mlrate's Don Ottivio, ultboush it would not bear comparison with that of Ma rio, wss yet very finely rendered. His II mio tetoro wai givm with a tenderness and exqxlalte finish that fell little abort of the manner in which it waa suog by that ueat artist. Of the other characters we have only .-pace to say a" few words. The Dona Anna of Dcvrles wae like every thing she does?an extremely ere Citable performance. iSledenberg's Elvira waa eorractin tri rtpsu.n, but not so effectiva. Tha Leporello of Re vere was capitally impersonated, and kept the house in continual merriment. Of Signer GulUo's Maaetto we bavo to report favorably for a flrat appearance. The opera can only he repeated once more, as the en gagement of the trovpe ia near ita close. This Is to be regretted for the sake of the management aa well as of the public, for we feel assured that the piece would run prof-tably for at least a fortnight. What can't be reme died, however, must be endured. Theee speculations re quire ?xp< rimce ai d foresight to indicate exactly when where to hit the public taste. Had the Chevalier Wikoff had the management of this admirable troupe there would neither have been failures as to time, nor miscalculation* as *o cbanoes, such as we hava wit sense! tbia week.

Nothing is to be done with the personnel of the navy, regarding promotions, he., until after the report of the Navy Retiring Board shall have been made. The impression to-day is that fit. Clayton, the Second Auditor of the Treasury, will not be removed. Iho President, with Mrs. Pierce, left this afternoon for Baltimore.

PKOGRJBS OF THE REVOLUTION?HBTURN OP SANTA ANNA TO THB CAPITAL?TRIUMPH OF ALVAREZ. Nxw Orleans, Jnae 20, 1855. The steamship Orizaba has arrived at this port with dates from the city of Mexioo to the 19th Inst. Santa inna had returned to the eaptal. The govern ment papers publish accounts of the defeat of Bevetal small parties of revolutionists. Alvarez defeated the government troops near Mexetto, with a loss of 6C0 killed and wounded.

Kate Co ma lock's Conceit. Mies Kate Coma toot, a young artist but little known to the public, but who teems to her# a large ooanexloa ?f friends and well wlahere, gate her first coneert at tho Brooklyn Atheneum on Tueiday evening last. TherO wae a very full attendance?much fuller in fact than in ordinarily Men at the Brooklyn concerto. ThU wan evidently owing to the local interest excited ly the first appearance in public of a young lady known to most of the audience, and of whose professional success groat expectations teem to be entertained. On Miss Comstock's coming forward to open the even* ing's performances, she was received with deafening applause. She appeared for a moment agitated by tho warm welcome wblch she met with, but soon recovered her composure. She is very young-apparently not more then seventeen-but her voloe has astonishing power for that age. It is a contralto of excellent quality, and susceptible of etill further improvement from tho deveiopement of her physical strength. Her method in good, and is evidently the result of oareful cultivation by a good Italian master. In her first eavatina, "Una Foes," Miss Comatock, as was to be expected, displayed considerable nervousness; but this soon wore off, and In her sosna and aria from ?<Dar Friesohuts," and ber dust from "Norma," with Miss Hadley, eba put forth all the unchecked powers of her voice. Tho last piece wee executed by both tho fall? vocalists with a harmony of ensemble and brilliancy of execution which elicited rap urous applause. Miss Hadley is an excellent sioger, with a pure though not powerful organ, and a thorough knowledge of her art. Mrs. H. C. Matron is aUe entitled to favorable mention for the creditable manner in wbleh the executed the ?org* set down for ber in the programme. It would not be fair to cloae tbts brief notioe of thw evening's performances without alluding to the admira ble playing of Mr. Morgan on a newly invented piano forte called "The Lurguine." by which ho produced some most pleaeing and original effects. This instrument bss an attachment which, by a simple transi tion, I gives out all the finest and moat resonant tons. of tho barp. It was invented and patented by Messrs. Driggs ! & Sclionacker. IsTtassTiNG to Travbliabh and Tourists.?Traveller* at this season, whether on business or for recreation and health, wishing to reach Lake Erie, Sandusky Uity, Toledo, Cleveland or Cincinnati, will find it to their in; terest and eomfort to take the cars of the New York and Erie or other lines of railroad, or any of tho differ ent str am boats, from this city to the Lake, and from Erie sweep along tho delightful Lake Shore Road to tho different places named.
