CHINESE ASSEMBLY ROOMS. 88# Broadwaj? Pa.10 or Ei'Jiopk abd Sue* or SKBAaTOroa. StwTork, Friday, July 6, 1855. Th? Wews. Bj the arrival of the America at Halifax, and ?I the Hermann at this port, we have one week's later intelligence from Europe. The atl vices re aeived from the seat of war are of tte highest 1m pert an oe. In carrying oat, on the 18th, the operations against the Malakoff and Redan towers, to whijh the ?apt u re of the Mame'on and Whit? tower, already effected, were necersvy preliminary steps, the allied troops received a dreadful check. They were not Mly completely repulsed, bat a loss was inflicted ?yon them each as we only read of in pitched ba* ftfes ob a la'ge sole. Acoordiog to one state meat the British lost about four thousand of their beat troops, including General Campbell and apwarda ef seventy other cfficrrs. Maay will bs glad to karn that tbe officer hero specified Is not Ike chivalrous Scotsman, Sir Colin Ctmpbell, whose personal gallantry and immunity from dan ger in 10 many desperate engagements seemed to warrant the belief entertained by his soldiers that he bore a charmed lire. A great portion of the loss incurred by tie a.'liea Beems to have been occv atoned by the Rnc siacs springing a mint) ; and during tbe ocnfnsion caused by this event the ttamalon tower waa recaptured. Thus all the advantages gained by tbe farmer, in the previous operations ia this quarter, appear to have been lost in this last ?Mack. Another event contributed to tbe gloom wbi;h this disaster cast ever the public mind in Paris? B&irrely, the serious indisposition of the French Em peror. There were vaiicoB rumors afloat aa to t!ie ?ature of hia illness, seme journals attributing it t j aa apoplectic fit, and others to a violent bilious at tack, accompanied by colic. By tho latest accounts, hia recovery la announced. The French govern ment ia again in tbe market for a loin of ?20,000, M0 sterling. Layard's motion on administrative reform ba=i been negatived by an overwhelming majority in the Ecg iah House cf Commons, and a more palat able modiflcation of it, in Sir Edward Lytioa Bui war's amendment, aaopted. The old sore will be allowed to fester until popular discontent gets to a head and uproots tbe whole system of oorrapt and aalfieh influences to which the interests of tbe masses are sacrificed. Constructed as tho present Kngliah House of Commons la, with two-thirds of its members belonging to the aristocracy, no one expected that anything would come of this move ment. The p: ivileged classes in England, like tie old rubles st in France, will persiit in their errors an til the storm bursts suddenly upon them, and huies them beneath the debris of tbe rotten insti tatkms to which they so teuaoiously dug. Frcm aa article in the St. Petersburg Jturnul of the 12th of Jane, V, weald appear that the Rossl&n government oonsid;ra tbe renewal of the peace ne gotiations not only feasible but easy. With tbe ftolng that exists amongst a large party in Eng land in favor of accepting the terau offered by Rus aia, it seems like madness to ontinae a contest for which the belligerents on both sides exhibit such little inclination. The maaaacre at H&ngo of part of a boat's crew ha" longing to an English man-of-war and bs&Ttng a flag ?f truce ia one of those acts of aavage barbarity of wbioh we have unfortunately bat too many examples ?ven in the warfare of civilised nations. Toe details given in the English papers tarn oat to be exag gerated; bat however far they are in advance of the trntb, enough remains to sicken tae mind at aantemplation of such honors. The defence offered hy the Russian authorities for this violation of oue of the few immanities allowed in war is , that tbe Ooesack's boat was engaged in taking toundings, a? at Kertch, under cover of tbe flag of truss. It is stated In the Invalid* Ru*se toat six only of tbe crew were killed a id that the remainder are pri acaers. All tbe officers seem to ba amongst the latter. It will be seen by a despatch da'-ed .Juaa 8, from a British vessel ofl' Crocstadt, that Professor J v ?obi's submarine ba'teriea are likely to play ai Important part in the decease of the Biltij ports Two of the reconnoit ring vessel i of the combined squadrons, the Merlin and Firefly, were near being blown oat of the water by these Infernal nnchiue?.

The pbibt ol the new# Lb to the effect that the attack on Sebuk'po! wai renewed by the Allies on the eighteenth of June, and that they were repulsed with great slaughter. The attack ap pears to b*YO been m>ide from the worka recent ly taken from tbe Russians, npon the south eastern defences of tbe city, and mainly upon tbe Redan and the Malakoff tower. Pelisei?r's plan evidently was to carry work after work at whatever cost of life. The Mamelon and adjoining work towards Careening bay was not deemed by Canrobert to be worth tbe number of men Pelissier sacrificed to take it. It was taken, however, and ten days afterwards orders were given to prosecute the advance upon the near est works, which were the Redan and the Mala koff. These it appears were fortifiad complete ly. They are among the oldest defences of Sebaatopol , and whatever strength time, mo ney, energy and science can have imparted to them, they pessess. It Ib not wonderful, there fore, that the assailants should have been re pulsed with heavy loss. It is said that that loes amounts to four thousand men, and over seventy officers. Bnt it must be observed that both the British and French governments have concealed the news they have received, thus leaving the public mind a prey to a conviction of disaster without the least inkling of its extent an'l nature. Four thousand men, a greater loss than England has suffered since Waterloo (the A Afghan loss was not in the field), seems a large number to have fallen in an attack on a line which cannot exceed half a mile in length; and unless an attack was simultaneously made on some of tbe western defences, it will probably be found te be ex aggerated. Criticism on military movements at such a distance is not easy, or liiMiy to be very pre cise. But it iB impostMe to reflect upon the sacrifice of life that is going on in the Crimea without a feeling of horror, and deep indignation. One cannot help mistrusting the vaunted abilities of Pelissier. According to the telegraphic accounts, nearly eight thousand men have been sacrificed on tbe allied side alone, for the capture of a position by no means indispensable to the besiegers or dan gerous in the hands of the besieged; a position which the English and French have each held in turn and each voluntarily evacuated. Even if the attjek of the 18th June had led to the cap ture ol the Redan and Malakoff, it by no means JoIIowb thut the Allies would have reaped any advantages beyond moral prestige. The de fences of the barracks, artillery stores and docks wbich lie in the rear of these works are said to be of equal strength to those which have held tbe Allies at bay for nearly a year. Even alter these were captured, the Allies would only be in possession of oue bank of the stream, and one side of the city. They would be exposed to the lire of the other side on wbich the city itself is situate and the strong est of tbe works; and also to that of the pow erful batteries which lie on the other side of the bay. Non military men may be bad judges of such matters. But, judging according to the plain ruleB oi common sense, it docs seem that until something more has been done than walking three or four miles along the Tchernaya, beat the bushes and then walk back again; until, in short. the Russians have been beaten in the field, Simpheropol reduced, and Perekop ? above all, Perekop? captured, it is sheer folly to slaughter men by marching them up to the cannon's mouth against a city which cannot even be invested. Patriotism and Pihtolh ? Shocking Results. ?Bend our reports of the mutilations and dis figurations inflicted by pistols in the hands of thoughtless boys on the Fourth of J1 iy There never was in this city so much pistol firing on this national anniversary, within our recolkction, and the results are truly shocking. Young lads, ambitious of a loud noise, have vied wilh each other in procuring the biggest old pistols, and in firing the heaviest charges. Reckless of the dangers of such sport, many a promising young fellow has boen crippled or disfigured for life as the penalty for his rash ness and his folly. It is to be hoped that the fearful list of these dreadful lessons of the cele bration of this last "Fourth'' will be remember ed hereafter by parents and guardians; and that the attention of our city fathers and law makers at Albany will be called to the subject of this indiscriminate firing of rusty pistols by young lads, who neither know Vbe strength of gunpowder nor the weakness of old iron. We hope never hereafter to have such acitilogue of killed and wounded of the rising generation, from the explosion of overloaded or damaged pistols in their hands on the Fourth of July. We leave the painful question to parents and guardians themselves, as to bow far they have been guilty in this matter. But let them look to it hereafter who have escaped these dit ofters. The Wohkisu ok the New Liquo ; Law. ? The Liquor law went into operation on '? the glorious Fourth," and the result has been a very important and most astonishing discove ry. The general belief of the effect of this extraordinaiy law was, that from a--d after the "Fourth" it would put an cad to liquor driak ing and liquor Felling by retail, "exept for medicinal, mechanical, chemical, or sa;i-amon tal purposes." But the effect is exactly ihc re verse. The practical working of the la v in theec parts, thus far. shows that so far from being an act of absolute prohibition of the retail liquor business, it is an act of absolute ftec trade. Anybody may buy and everybody may pell? if we may judge from the numerous examples of buying and selling in all parts of the city? without the expense1 of u license, and withont fear of the law. The first section of this remarkable law posi tively Interdicts the selling or giving away of any intoxicating liquors, upon any pretence, or for any purpose, in any "tavern, store, grocery. ?bop, boarding or victualling house, or room for gambling, dancing or other public amusement or recreation of pny kind," A 4c , and says that no intoxicating liquor ?dull be kept or deposited in any such place*, in view of the penalties of the law. wluch is a pretty clean sweep of the retail trade : but then comes the proviso, which ?iys " thi^ s.ction shall not apply to li qvur the right to !*ell which in th s State is given by any law ,r treaty of the United Siates.' And here is the loophole of escape. The feudal constitution pre-ridc* that Con^rc?* shall h ive I pcrcr to t ito comrn?'rc". levy duties upon imports, Ac. This 13 the fun damental taw. Under It Cor ^rofct h? nrovided for the admission into ve* York ol foreign lienors as merchandise. Tfiip ccmprehen-U the r^bt to bcU; and r.pco this construc Ikn Mayor Xood has issued hie manifesto to oar city po lice men. He considers tho prohiVitfon of the lavas limited to bald-faced whiskey, lager bier, and other homo made articles, and cauuoa*thc police accordingly against interrupting the re tail banner in Flench l>ran-Jy, Holland gin. Jamaica rem, Scotch aud Irish whi.-key, and English beer and brown Rtoat. Of coarse, with this awful hitch In the law, it is a dead letter, and we undertake to say that to It will practically stand till tbe act is essen tially modified cr absolutely repealed. The policy of " eupprcsing intemperance, pauper ism and crime'- by an act providing for the uni versal sale of intoxicating liquors without the expenses of a licence, is ? new thing under the sun. Under this rdeqse, the liquor sellers ought to be able to retail their home-made French brandy, Irish whiskey and German lager bier at five cents a glass; and judging from the start made on the " Fourth," we shall not be surprised if, from an increased competition in the retail trade under the law, the cost of a dram should be actually reduced to five cents by the first of Angust.

THE PROHIBITORY LIQUOR LAW. Acretta lor Drunkcnneaa on the Fourth of July? Proceeding! at the Police Court? Itxe MagiiUaltt' Opinion on the Law. The officials at tbe various police court! were busily engaged yesterday to disposing of ths person* charged with Intoxication under tbe provisions ?( the Prohibitory Liquor law. Various opinions existed among the isk giatretes as to the proper manner of proceeding to work, consequently each Justise acted somewhat different from thi other. The number of parties eonvlctod waa very numerous, and comprised men and women of all na tions. Many of the old topers who had been brought up before for a too free indulgence is tbe elixir of lift, were not a Utile astonished on finding out that the amount of tine was ralasd double; and besides this, tbe law made it incumbent on the Judge* to jiold them as witnesses against such liquor dealers as had furnished them with the various (matters, cockUUs, skins, punches, clears and straights that tbeir appetites demanded. Very few of those wbo were arrested could give any distinct ac count of their frolics, and consequently could not positively awear where they did get drunk. And as men are presumed to be sober until they do actually get intoxicated, tbey could not be blamed for not know ing where they really did get drunk. Tto course of the magistrates under the lair Prefe rence to the disposition of prisoners brought before them for drunkenness aeema very plain; but notwith standing this, each police justice seema to put a dlf iertnt corstruction on tbat portion of it (sect. 12) which dt lines the way in whica they shall proseed t? business, in a very plain and straightforward manner. Ah this section (12) will no doubt be the means of put ling drinkers and others to a great deal of inconvenience, we give tbe following extract : ? It sliall be the doty of every snob officer when be shall see lay intoxicated person in any store, hotel, street, alley, highway, or place, or disturbing the public peace aud quiet, to apprehend such person, aud tp take him before the same mai titrate; and if such magistrate shall, after due exami nation, deem him too much intoxicated to be examined, or to answer upon oath currently, he shall direot said officer to keep lilin in nine jail, loot up, e?r other safe and aonvenisut place to be detignated by aueli ma&iitate, until he shall Lvcume sober, and thereupon forthwith take him betore knit Magistrate, or it he canuot be found, before sorno otbor magistrate; aad whenever aay person shall appear, or be brought bcfoie any magistrate as provide') this or the preceding section, it shall be the duty of su . igia '.rate to administer to such person an oath or sflirrattion, and tf> examine bim as to the cause ef such intoxication, and for the purpose of ascertaining whether any otfeme has been committed against any provision ef this act. II' upon such examination it shall appear tbat any such offence has been committed within tbe jurisdiction ot such magistrate, it tnall be bis duty to issue a wsrant tor the arrest of the of fender and the search ot bis premises as heroin before pro vided. If it shall a,.pesr that any such offense has been eomnitfed at any place beyond the jurisdiction of sueh ma gistrate, it shall be his dnty t? reduce such examination ta writing, and forthwith to certify and send the same to any officer or magistrate having jurisdiction ot the offence charged, who tball therenpon proceed in relation to such

Jamee Radlaj, Ilia Recorder opened hie charge with a etateinent to the Jury that, ehargiag them waa ao frequent and had been made ao public, it waa hardly nece-mry that ha ahould go Into any detail aa to their duties and the ralea which governed them. After a mere reference to the care that should be ex e railed on the part of the iurcra in finding indictment* upon charges not ave mlgated before a magistrate, the Recorder aaid that queationa of gTeat importance might come np before them, ?r ir ^ oat of tne new law, paused April 9, 1866, entitled "An aet tor the prevention of in temperance, pau|? riam and crime," and upon thia tmb ject he would particularly charge them. By an ac passed pub i "(-iitly to thia ast, entitled "An act to enln-ge tba jurisdiction of the Court of General and Special Sessions in and for the city and county of New York," pained April 12, 1856, exclusive jurisdiction ia given to the Court of Special Seaalona to bear and punish all mitdemeaacr*. Now, by tbe aet Brat mentioned the celling of liquor ia made a misdemeanor, and unlet a a complaint under thia head ia aeat by the Court of Special Sessions to the Court o( General Sessions for trial, and unleaa the party complained againat shall choosa to be tried by the General i-'esatons, the law demands that the Special Sessions shall try tbe case Now, in regard to thin claai of complain *, I charge yon "lat, aa the law now ia, you have no right or power to in ot any one for telling liquor in violation of tli< rat aet of April B, inaamuoh aa the complaint tor such violation must be made Drat to torn* magistrate named in the act, and by that magistrate must come to the Special Setiaicna for trial, tl' u? running clear of the Grand Jury entirely, and kteping.tba subject entirely oat of their bandH. The Special Seuions, a* I have already at ited, can, if tha accused ao daatre, send the ease to thia Court for trial, and it can comt here from that Court only. I may here suggest that it ia a question whether an ia dictment can be found by any power for the ollence named; but upon this it is not nesesauy that I should charge you now. The lieoorder, in concluiion, stated tbavttwaa & matter of doubt whether an inlictment would lie for keeping and aelling liquors, inasmuch as tbe act provided remedlea which might be had ex ilasive of ird ctmenta, aa tbe act salt nothing of indictment* whatever; and furthermore, the a:t of April 12th evi dently repealed tome portion of the Liquor act of April 9ili, 1815.
