The weather was outrageously hot yesterday. It was the warmest June day we hare had in eight t ears. We would give the figures, but as it would net have a tendency to make our readers any cooler, we refrain. In the Hkbau> editorial rooms, which is a cool place, and contains a singn'arly cool set of individuals, the thermometer stood at 91 degrees at-8 o'clock P. If. This was in the shade. In the sun the mercury literally outran calcula tion, fer the highest point of the glais we hare is 120 degrees, and the mercury was far beyond that. There is evidently a determination on the part of Old Sol to make up for his remissness so far this summer, and give us the benefit of his hottest blasts. Of this yesterday was an earnest. It began at 72 degrees in the morning, ran op to 89 degrees at soon; at 3 P. U. it was 91 degrees, and remained at that figure until 8 P.M., when it moderated Most people do not wish it quite so hot ss this, but it is splendid weather for corn, light clothes, pota toes, soda water, strawberries, Coney Island, loafers and lager bier. Governor Clark, attended by bis staff and a select party, visited the publio institutions on Staten Island yesterday. What was said and done is re corded in another column. The first annual exhibition of the grammar schools ?f New Tcrk was given yesterday at Niblo's Saloon, The best specimens of penmanship, drawing and needlework were displayed during the day, and io the evening there were exercises, consisting of reci tations and singisg by the pupils. Addresses were made by Dr. Jones, Messrs. S. S. Rondel! and R. H. Sbanrcn. A full report will be found elsewhere. The statement recently put torth by the Courier and Ent/uirir, in regard to General Scott's claim for additional pay as Lieutenant-General, is denied by the Washington Union. That paper says the Attorney-General has received several letters from General Scott, and on the intimation of the latter be ekaed the argument on the case. The Attorney General has taken the case up for examination. By way of New Orleans we have dates from Ha vana to the 25th met. There was no political news, and the island was in an unusually tranquil state. The sugar market tended upward, but freights were a trifle lower. The Simon Pure whigs of Maine held a State Convention at Portland yesterday, and nominated Hon. Isaac Reed for Governor. Anti-Nebraska, anti-Know-Nothing, and anti-Maine Liquor law re notations were ndoptcd. The Dunkirk express on the New York and Erie Railroad, which le/t.New York yesterday morning, ran over a horse near Dunkirk, throwing the train off the track, breaking up the cars and engine con siderably. The passengers escaped with only a few bruises, no one being severely injured. The sale9 of cotton yesterday reached about 3,000 bales, closing at about 11c. to ll^c. for mid. dliag uplands, and showing a decline of about jc. a |c., being irregular, and varying according to circumstances. Common grades of flour were dull and easier, while higher brands were steady. A small lot of Michigan white wheat sold at $2 52fc. Pork was in good demand, with pretty free sales at full prices. Cotton and corn were to a fair extent again shipped to Liverpool, at 3-16d. for the former, and 4d. to 5d. for the latter, chiefly at the second figare, in ships' bags. The Reward Dlannlon Platform?Speeches of Senators Bell and Hale, of New Hampshire, We publish to-day a report of the speeches lately delivered at Concord by the two new Senators recently elected by the New Hamp shire Know Nothing and free soil Legislature, Mr. James Bell, and Mr. John P. Hale. The former heretofore has been a whig, and the latter is well known throughout the country as a lead ing free soiler, and especially as the candidate ?f the anti-slavery coalition for President in 1852. Mr Hale of course sticks to his anti-slavery instincts and associations ; but there is some thing significant in the Bpeech of Mr. Bell, sub stantially upon the same platform. Between the two, we are given very clearly to under stand that the repeal of the Nebraska bill, and the restoration thereby of the Missouri line of demarcation against Southern slavery?the corner stone of the programme of the New York Seward Holy Alliance?is also the corner stone of the dominant Know Nothing and free soil majority of New Hampshire. The State Coun cil of the Massachusetts Know Nothings have just declared the same purpose, in endorsing the secession of Wilson Ac Co. from the Phila delphia Council, and in boldly demanding the restoration of the Missouri line. The other New England States have betrayed the same disorganizing tendencies to a junction with the Seward coalition. Iu a word, from all the de velopements and all the signs of the times, we may safely pronounce the New England States as demoralized beyond redemption by nigger worshipping and Maine Liquor law fanaticism? that they are committed to the cause of Seward and his disorganizing plot for a violent, vindic tive and most strongly marked sectional cam paign for the Presidency. In the prosecution of this seditious con spiracy we perceive that the late border squabbles among the squatters of Kansas are mainly to be relied upon, and urged upon the North as imperiously demanding the restora tion of the Missouri line. Upon this false issue these scheming agitators calculate upon such a diversion as will give tbem at least the balance of power in the Presidential campaign. But what is the real issue ? The object of the re peal of the Nebraska bill was to remove the agi tation of the slavery question out of Congress, and to transfer the settlement of the subject to the people of the Territories, to whom it right fully belongs. The Ks.nsat>Nebra%k4 bill, in this tjcw, became a Jin of tb* laud. and. accepting the challenge thus thrown down, our Northern anti-slavery societies forthwith proceeded to colonize these new Territories with the right stuff lor the prompt and decisive exclusion of slavery. But the slaveholders of Missouri aud other States have outsquatted these free sail emigration companies, and threaten to hold their own uuder the law, by diut < j superior numbers. So, the free soil aqua' scheme proving a failure, the parties inte- ^,0(1 fly into a rage, and heaven aud earth a ^ +o be moved out of their places in order ^ drive back, by act of Congress, all slave*joUiag emi grants and squatters to the so,at& side of the Missouri line. What is the 'prospects A fierce and relentless anti-slavery crusade upon (he repeal of the Ne braska bill is inevitable. Abolitionists and free aoiler a, ot all shades, from Boston to St. Paul, are in for it, and Seward and his retainers are revolved to use them while they may. The reper.1 of the Nebraska bill is, of course, a hum bug; for it is simply out of the question that the United States Senate can be brought, for an in definite period to come, to vote for such a mea sure. There is one thing, however, which may be done: The agitation upon this subject, and the refusal by the House of Representatives to admit Kansas into the Union as a slave State, should she apply for admission as such, may be carried to that degree of exasperation beyond which the restoration of the peace of the Union will be impossible. In other words, it will be found more difficult, under this new agitation, to restore the Missouri blockade than to dissolve the Union, and let loose upon both sections the horrors of anarchy and civil and servile war. At such a crisis, when all the outside fac tions and fag ends of all parties in the extreme North are conspiring for this disunion crusade against the South, where are we to look for safety ? The answer is at hand. We look to the^solid conservative masses of the people of the middle States as the reliable nucleus for a reaction which will overthrow alj disunion plots and conspirators, North and South. The nu cleus for this middle and conservative party has been provided by the late Philadelphia Know Nothing National Council, and in the policy of non-intervention on the slavery ques tion as there laid down. And what could be more simple or just than to let the people of Kansas and Nebraska settle upon their own do mestic institutions for themselves, just as the people of the States respectively are author ized to do by the constitution? This new agitation, however, is upon us, and it must be met at the threshold, or it may re sult in the most fearful and comprehensive disasters against the great cause of popular government to us and to generations yet un born. The honest, patriotic people of the coun try should range themselves accordingly with that existing party which is best adapted to meet the emergencies of the crisis, and in open hostility to all concerned in the seditious crusade of Seward, Wilson, Hale, Bell, and their associates and their followers. We believe the people of New York may be safely trusted upon a flair presentation of this wicked humbog of the restoration of the Missouri restriction. Let it be fairly tried in November, at all events, that we may know to what point we are drifting. What says oar new American party ? A Little Common Sense for the Know Nothings. We see in several organs of the Know No thing party throughout the country, constant allusions to the Pope, and symptoms of great alarm with regard to the spread of Roman Ca tholicism. From one journal we learn that the day on which the news of Ur. Wise's victory reached the Vatican will have been kept with unusual ceremony; from another we gather that the high priests of Antichrist have been in ecstacies ever since the action of the Massa chusetts delegates to the Philadelphia conven tion; and generally we may say, the newspa pers ot this stripe talk as if we were living in the days of the great Spanish Armada, and re duced to trust to our broadswords to defeat the famous bull by which the whole of America was given to the King of Spain by the Pope. "There is not a single spectator of the politics of this country," says one, "who takes a deep er interest in them than the Pope of Rome;" and instead of feeling flattered by this infor mation. which will be new to most of us, this ungracious Know Nothing adds energetically that we ought "to make Rome howl," for "if there be a cloud in our nation's horizon, it is the Papacy." It is high time that this stuff should be stop ped. We have made asses of ourselves pretty freely?we Christians?since the days of Lu ther, about our theological quarrel; and car ried matters to such an extent that no sensible Chinese who has any respect for himseli will at the present day have anything to do with a church so obviously divided against itself. Cut if our ancestors, who shot, stabbed, burned, tortured and hanged each other on points of theology, were undeniable asses, what are we who have not a tithe of their grounds for controversial rancor? For, it must be re membered, to the Englishman of the seven teenth century, Catholicism implied submission to the Pope, and submission to the Pope in volved the surrender of America to the Spa niards: small wonder forsooth that they were fierce Protestants, and that, while they trusted in Providence,they likewise kept their powder dry. But we, what cause have we to fear the Pope ? What harm has he done us ? What can he do ? Why. really, good people, who are <iuaking in your shoes about the inroads of the Papacy, and muttering dreadful things abont the scar let woman ot Babylon, you are much more likely to damage ihe Pope, than he to lujure you. It is hard work enough for him?poor old soul?to keep his place, with board and lodging and fire, at the Vatican: nor would be be there still, in fact, if Napoleon III. had not condescended to use Christianity, just as he used the Dclvigne bullet, to consolidate his new empire. Since the first Napoleon showed that a Pope might be kicked about as well as any other man, there hasn't been a sovereign in Europe that would forego the pleasure of try ing the new sport. All the ministers of Spain, from the republican juntas to Es partero, have had their turn at it. France has treated him like a dog. Metternicb let him know plainly that he must consider himself a mere pensioner of Austria on his good beha vior; and now in these latter days, even Italy's self turns round upon him. and will have no inare dealings with him. Rome drives him into exile, Sardinia deposes him from his authority. And is this the potentate of whoa se arc afraid? This poo-, huatc-1, d-serteJ. 1 uilie 1 creature, set up by this or that tyrant or hie o?r pUrp0geB a-fl knocked dovn the next <3?y likeaainepin ia mere sport: living cn 01c' e sufferance, a sort of Smallweod, shaken r .owund then by some neighbor to scare the ur .wary with his shrill voice; the pitiable relic y an effete order of civilisation, so wholly oat of place in the middle of this nineteenth c.u tury, that, as we axe told uy the most reliable travellers, the ceremonies and fashions essential to his state are probably the most comical Bight in Europe?is this the man?this the power?of which the Order of Native Americans confess to the world they are afraid? God help their backbone, if so it be! Bnt we shall be told that Catholicism is not the Pope, and that though the wings of the lat ter may be cut, the former will thrive notwith standing. We-bave before us a Know Nothing journal in which this ground is taken. It re vives itself into a very simple question: is there any danger of the Roman Catholics pre ponderating in the United States? It is with no controversial intent that we ad venture boldly the assertiou that Roman Catholicism is not the creed for the present day. It is a religion of the feelings and of the heart; it rests wholly on faith, and discards reason with contempt: it appeals to the senses more than to the mind, to the passions more than the understanding; and though culminating in a system of morality at least equal to that evolved out of Protestantism, it ia, as every honest per son must admit on examination, the best possi ble creed for a nation emerging from barbar ism, and, quite as oertainly, the most Impossible to plant among a civilized and intellectual people. In this place, we are bound above all things to be brief; and we will therefore sim ply add?leaving each to fill up the argument for himself-?that for the very same reasons which render it a matter of comparative impos sibility that Roman Catholicism, as we know it, can overspread a reflecting, active, energetic people in the present day, that faith has very little chance in the struggle with Protestant ism. All tbe men who own no religion are Protestants; and the wiser the world grows, the larger this class becomes. The Anglo Saxon race is essentially Protestant; that is to say, impatient of spiritual control. It will judge lor itself in religion as in politics And it does not seem at all more likely that these Anglo-Saxons will become Catholios than that they will revert to their old political sys tems, and once more set their necks under the spurred heel of a baron. Finally we may add that history contains no instance of one religion supplanting another on its abstract ethical merits. The heathen mythologies fell when so ciety became corrupt: Protestantism conquered half the Christian world, when heaven was sold at auction toy the priests and Rome was the sink of Europe j and Christianity bodily will fall whenever the morality of the races which profess it becomes so low that society ceases to have a bariB. . , It will be found, on examining statistics, that Protestantism has gained on Catholicity since the two were imported to this country. The gain has not been large; but it Is quite note worthy, as, since the Revolution, there is no ! Catholic country in the world where the Catho lics have had fairer play than here. But in truth it will be time enough to ex amine such trifles when it has been found that men are worse citizens when they are Catholics than when they are Protestants. It would be a new thing, we imagine, to argue that the p9ople of Maryland are not equal to those of any other State in patriotism and all the eivil virtues ; and quite entertaining to hear any one defend such a proposition out of the mouth of history. It would not be new, as we know, to Bee blatant intolerance exclude from aii assembly of dele gates chosen by citizens of the United States, certain gentlemen because they were Roman Catholics t)f French descent; the fact is on re cord to prove what a substratum of folly there is in all of us. But if the thing hail been done so often that one ceased to feel ashamed of it, it would not be the less impossible to show one single doctrine of Roman Catholicity?properly taught?whose tendency It is to make men worse citizens of a republic than the most en lightened Protestant. The Tree Mode to Encourage Art.?It it ay well be a matter of doubt and disputation whether the existence of art unions, or other kindred associations for the encouragement of art, has, on the whole, been productive of more benefit or mischief to society in general, and to the class which they were intended to benefit in particular. They have been, to be sure, in strumental in popularizing the love of the beauti ful in nature and art, by plaoiDg within the reach of all the denizens of large cities, where they were instituted, facilities to inspect and admire the works of the best painters. And so far they have been useful in their day and gene ration. But as an offset to this advantage, the propensity for gambling, the love of risk, the taste for lotteries, which they engendered and fostered in the public mind, must not be disre garded. It was a serious evil this, outweighing all appreciable benefits, and has brought art unions into disrepute, not only in New York, where the American Art Union was adjudicated to be an illegal concern, but also in many of the great cities of Europe. Then, as regarded their beneficial influence on art and artists, that too was quite as problematical. Through them, it may be admitted, youog artists, perhaps with out name or reputation, found an easy way to have their works and names brought before the notice of the public ; and some minds not suffi ciently imbued with the love of art per $e, may have been stimulated into study and exertion by the force of rivalry. But it needs not the application of any such artificial process to bring out real genius. Wherever it exists, it Is bound, even against adverse circumstances, to make itself felt and recognized. And as to ar tists of a mediocre order, though they might have the poor satisfaction of having their paint ings hung up in obscure corners of an exhibi tion room, that circumstance brought no larger, but more probably a much smaller, number of visiters to their studio. We are impressed with the conviction that the real, veritable mode of encouraging art is not merely by furnishing an exhibition room to suspend paintings in, but by affording facili ties to artists to dispose of their paintings. That is the true desideratum. It is poor sat. isfaction to a man of genius, struggling against those Twin .iai'.?r* of the *?piring mind, Low birth and iron fortune, to reflect that one or two of his works are num bered in the annual catalogue of an art union, while numberless records of his glorious art hang in hisde.-erted at'lier. Open up to him but a mode of disposing of these work", even at a sacrifice, and you confer upon him a real, tan gible benefit. It 1# that which we propose to suggest to the consideration of the friends of 1 ait. We will not elaborate .,ur pUa, bat mere ly trace out the, salient points of It. Let an art union aksociation be organized by that or any other appropriate name, in the ordinary mode, with a certain fixed capital, to be raised by the sale of a certain number of shared of stock. Let exhibition rooms be pro cured, much more capacioas and eligible than any we have yet had in New York. Let a di rectory committee, composed of a few gentle men of taste, discrimination, and high probity, be elected, whose province it shall be to estimate the fair value of every painting and work of art offered for exhibition. Let one-third or one fonrth of that estimated value be paid out of the funds of the society to the artist, and let the painting be hong up in the public exhibition room, marked for sale, and labelled with its price; and at the end of a certain period?three, six or twelve months -let all such works of art as remain unsold be disposed of by public auction, for the benefit of the artist, deducting, of course, from the proceeds of the sale the amount advanced by the institution. Such an establishment would soon become popular, and the funds derived from the sale of admission tickets would cover working expenses. In this way, wev think, art unions might be made really conducive to the advancement of art, and to the improvement of the public taste?to the advancement of art, because one of the greatest obstacles which an artist has to encounter is the difficulty of disposing of the productions of his skill. Poverty too often crushes out the noble aspirations of the young painter, and the soul's ideal is extinguished and overshadowed by the body's necessities. Remove that chief impediment; give him, like every other producer, facilities to dispose of the work of his hand and the creation of his mind, and you open before hiB step an unim peded path to whatever excellence he may be capable of attaining. The improvement of the public taste, and the elevating it to a more correct standard, will follow, as well as a na tural consequence of the artist'B advance as from the comparisons which the community will be enabled to make of the relative value of works of art, and the more general disse mination of them which would result from the carrying oat of our plan. It is feasible, it is simple, it is practical. Let it be carried out In

the spirit in whioh it is suggested, and it can not fail to produee even greater benefits than those which we now foresee for it. Mr. Seward's "Little Villain" on General Scott.?Concerning our offer in reference to the Wail street proposition for a public sub scription for the relief of General Scott, our cotemporary, Mr. Seward's "Little Villain," is very savage upon us. The "Little Villain" had better take things a little easier, or, instead of a mere money testimonial, General Scott may be brought out for another trial for the Presidency upon his own merits, and not upon the demerits and drawbacks of W. H Se ward and his big and "little villains." Be dis creet. A Kitchen Cabinet Joint Stock Town Lot Speculation.?Read the letter which we pub lish this morning from the Cleveland Expreas. The Kitchen Cabinet have fairly eclipsed Gov ernor Reeder. The city of Fond da Lac, at the west end of Lake Superior, a great city in lithograph, has been bought up by the Kitchen Cabinet, and laid off into town lots. Settlers, however, are admonished to be cautious in the purchase of these town lots, or they may be <asold." On a small scale, the whole thing looks very much like another Kinney expedition. Read the letter. Academy of Music. LAST NIGHT OP TBI LA GRANGE TROUPE. This company gSTt ths last performance of tbe leaaoa at the Academy last night, and a very warm time of it they had, too. The opera was the "Hon Giovanni" of Mozart, with tbe same cait ae on Wednesday. Notwith standing the excessively hot weather, them was a very good honse. There will be no more opera at this house at present, and all the artiste will enjoy rural felicity antil September. The performance of last night was warmly received in every sense of the word. Xiblo's Gardin,?Donizetti's opera of the " Daughter of the Regiment" will be given, for the last time, this evening; and on Monday a new opera, the libretto by Buckitcne, music by Fitzwilliam, called the " Queen of a Day," will be produced, for the first time?Miss Louisa Pjne as Lucy I-ovelaoe, and Mr. Harrison as Walter. The production of new operas will greatly enhance the treasury of the establishment. The Census Marshal*. The Census Marshals held a meeting last evening, at the Broadway House, Mr. Jacob Gibbs presiding. A me morial upon the long talked of subject of raising their compensation, to he presented to the Common Couocil, was read and adopted. On motion a committee, consist ing of one from each ward, was appointed to see that signatures of ail the marshals be obtained to the memo rial, and that the same be duly presented to the Com mon Council. A committee of hve were appointed to confer with the Marshals of Brooklyn, with a view to re port at the earliest day the probable time when tbe work of census taking is complete. Several attempts were here made to adjonm, but they failed. At length those present from each ef the wards, reported that in tbeir opinion they could not conclude their labors before the 15th or 20th of July. After a great deal of noise and ex citement, produced by the heat of the weather, and the uncertainty of getting the extra pay, the body adjourned to meet subject to the call of tbe chair. Marine Affairs. Stkamkr" for EfRors.?the steamer Union, for H?vre, via Southampton, and the steamer Ariel, for Havre di rect, sail at noon to-day. Qt iCK Votaok.?The clipper brig Addy Swift. Capt. Foster, from Maracaibo, arrived yesterday morning, hae mads the round voyage in 37 days, with full cargoes each way. 7us Bat Stats, one of the largest ths New York and Fa)) River line of steamers, was, on Saturday taken up in the new dock now lying at Grcenpoint. Tnis dock is 825 (set in isngtb. and 100 fset In wtdtn, without end gatas, so as to be able to take up a vessel of still greater length; and about 40 fset from top to bottom of dock. If oar readers would get a definite idea of the huge dimensions of this Immense floating structure, let them suppose it placed in one of our widest avenuee?the Fifth, for in stance?ber width would fill it, street and sidewalks, and touch the houses on both sides . and she would extend from the lower side of Eighth street?across that street ?along the whole block to Ninth street, and ashort dis tance into the next block. The mass of timber and fastening necessary to give strength to every part of snch a vast machine, can be mere readily imagined than stated. The trial was highly satisfactory, not only la respect to the ability of this great structure to sustain immense weights, but as to its capacity to lift them with out the use of end gates, and the manageability of the wbele machine. But about one third of the lifting powOT of the dock wai used for rsielng the steamer. SMrnws at Nrw Orlka.vs,?The shipping business, which for the last few years has been so profitable, has experienced during the past season a terrible revulsion. There are vessels that have been lying at our wharves for six months waiting, but waiting in vain, for advance in freights.

The ship Tuscany, White, from Sag Harbor, was wrecked at Amsterdam leland on tbe 16th of February last. The captala and third mate were ashore at the time of the disaster. The vessel was standing off and on, and in trying to wear the ship she struck and bUged. The erew were all saved. One of the boats being sent to St. Paul's for assistance, tbe Fr Acb schooner Ange, Gardien, went and took them off and landed them at Mauritius on the 29tli March. Tbe Mauritius Price Current says in relation to tbe wreck:? We have said the captain and third mate were on shore at the time of the disaster. We were carious to know why they visited Desert Island, that offered, as we thought at first, no kind of attraction; hut, on inquiry, we learn that the third mate, David Bliss, had b?en a seaman on hoard the Monmouth, who saved the pas sengers and crew of the ill-fated Meriden. It was wsll known that a considerable amount of money had hsen Iflt at the place of the Meriden's wreck. There the cap tain and third mate directed their steps, and were abeent two days and two ntghta. As they started from the op Bsite side of the island, we cannot assert that they were rtunate in their research, but we are assured that tbe third mate was vsry flush of half crowns after the wreck, and this money is not current in Sag Harbor or New York. At any rate, this landing at Amsterdam lod to the accident to the Tuscany, and was indirectly ths cause of It. RlarkeU. PHILADELPHIA STOCK BOARD. Philadelphia, June 29,1855. Money abundant.
