Being desirous of giving a correct list of the names of aB the candidates for office in this State, from Assembly anen v.p to the highest oa the ticket, with their politics and antecedents, we would request the respective nomi nees to send us their names, together with the names of the parlies to which they are attached, in order that the Ibt may be as perfect as possible. We desire to publish a eorrect list, properly classified. The lfewi. The soft shell* met at Tammany Hall last night in fall force, to assist in the nomination of candidates lor city officers. Azariah C. Flagg was nominated lor Comptroller by acc lamation. Samuel Allen was ?ominated for Street Commissioner. In the ballot lor Commissioner of Repairs and Supplies there were aome half a dozen more votes cast than should have been, and while the delegates were quarrelling the outsiders rushed into the meeting room, and the con vention exploded in a good, old-fashioned, Tammany Ball flare-up. Tlie old line whips of this city ? those who still adhere to the principles enunciated by Clay and Webster, and who are opposed to the betrayal of their party by the Seward section ? met last evening in mass meeting in Constitution Hall. In numbers and social standing the meeting was quite respect able. It was presided over by Mr. George Wood. An address and resolutions were presented and Adopted, repudiating the recent fusion action of the Seward faction and abolitionists in Syracuse, and calling fora Whig Nominating Convention to be held in this city on the 23d inst. The proceedings were marked with great enthusiasm. We commence in another column the publication ?f a report of the proceedings of the State Temper ance Convention held at Utica on the 3d inst., to gether with a rambling speech by Win. H. Burleigh. Ab '.as announced yesterday, the Convention agreed to support the fusion nominees for Attorney General and Judges of the Court of Appeals, those candidates being pledged prohibitionists, and, if ?lected, would be directly instrumental in enforcing the Maine law. We shall continue the publication of the report at onr earliest convenience The people of Connecticut have recently decided, ky a large majority, to amend the State constitu tion so as to require all electors hereafter to be able to read. This is a successful Know NothiDg move ment. The Fourieritc establishment, known as the North American Phalanx, New Jersey, has literally gone to smash. All its real estate, in which some $100,000 hod been invested, came under the hammer Wednesday and Thursday, and produced, in the ag gregate, $56,000, or a little over 183 per acre. This, with the estimated proceeds of its moveable pro perty, will enable there to pay from sixty to seventy per cent on the stock issued. The members of the community have nothing to show for the twelve years that the institution has been in existence. They admit that it has proved a complete failure. "We give a sketch of their history and a picture of their social manners, which cannot fail to be highly interesting. By the arrival of the steamship Black Warrior we feave one day's later news from Havana. Our cor respondent, writing on 28th ult., informs us that great preparations were being made to celebrate the Approaching birthday of the Qneen of Spain? 10th instant? in a proper manner. The Volunteers had prepared to parade in grand review, but at last date many of them commenced to draw back their names, tm it was feared that during the excitement of the display, firing, not quite so pleasant as that with blank cartridge, might occur. General Concha him ?elf was a little nervous, and it was said that he wished the anniversary day was happily ended. It was much doubted in Havana if Spain would find it 1>er interest to join in the alliance against Russia; toot again, it was considered that if the office of Warden of the Holy Shrines were offered to her, her Catholic tendencies would induce her to overlook the military danger*. The Slave Life Assurance Com pany was progressing steadily. Two hundred and six ty-one persons had subscribed $1,342,000 for shares in the Spanish Bank. The Spanish war vessels in port had been made very sccure, as if a hurricane were dreaded. Dr. Worrell, United States Consul at Ma tanzas, had resigned his office, owing to the con. tinned adverse action of the judiciary relative to the disposal of the property of deceased American citizens. Our correspondent at Rio Janeiro, writing on August ICth, says that at that time a very large fleet, consisting of trading and war -hips, lay in the harbor. The French, English ana Peruvian war vessels mounted onu hundred and seventy-five guns. Large shipments of coffee had been m:tde for Balti more and New Orleans. A good deal of flour had heen received, but only small lots remained in first hand.-. There was a report of a renewal of the w.ir difficulty with Paraguay. River navigation and ex plorations in search of new gold fields, still engaged the attention of speculators. The city was healthy. At the time of last advices cholera raged at Para. Gen. Barney's official account of the battle with the Indians on the 5th ult., near Ash Hollow, Ne braska Territory, Uu* been made public by the War Depurtmi-at. It confirms the accounts previously published. Alexander I.yall, Charles McDonald. ? Bobert Fitzpatrick and Thomas Carroll, privates, rwere killed in the engagement, and sergeant Thorn ?i!feally, corporal George Fink, and privates Wil lifun Walsh, C. E. Rutherford, Theophnltte Morff, j Irtocis J-arkeu and James Kennedy, were slightly 1 (Minded. Marshall Ryder, private, is rfp ,rted n tianng, supposed to be killed. The repert of the <ath of Captain Heth turns out to be incorrect. \ Ibe American Bible Uaion Society commenced Its dxth anniversary yesterday, at the Baptist Chur corner of Broome and Elizabeth street* Ihe ol "i"* of this society, as is well known, is to lcriso t present version of the Bible, more par ti ow.irly ?? as lo make it conform to the tenets of the Baptist scct ** to the ordinance of baptism. The att-emh x"c,> J^terdsy was greatly increased over the nom ^?r at any previous anniver sary. In the o| l*nin* ***relse? thus far nothing of very special intei ^ been denloped. Rev.

The report of liic J treasurer announces a favorable financial condition. The annual report shown a continued increase in the members of the Union, and that every effort is oeing I made to bring to a speedy termination the objects sought to be attained. Daring the sessions yester day*? of which there were three, morning, afternoon and evening ? addresses were delivered by several of the leading men in the movement. These were ail, however, of about like character, and proclaim ed the gTeat benefits which it was alleged would accrue from supplanting the present tnfelation of the Scriptures by a truer and purer version. They hold their sessions again to-day. The Board of Aldermen last evening passed re solutions an to the alleged issue of $600,000 of re. venue bonds, and on the deficiency of assessments, amounting to nearly two millions of dollars. A con siderable quantity of other business was transacted. The Aldermanic offal contract committee met yesterday. Alderman Tucker testified at some length as to the terms of settlement between last year's committee and Mr. Reynolds. Reynolds claimed $106,000 and finally accepted $85,000, upon the condition that the city should purchase hia boats, carts, horses, Ac. This condition was re garded as inadmissable. Mr. R. D. Cornell repeated his offer to remove the offal without any expense to the city, and expressed his willingness to pur chase the effects of Mr. Reynolds at a fair valuation. The committee meet again on Monday next. The Chamber of Commerce held its regular monthly meeting yesterday. The usury laws were taken up. Nothing else of importance came before the members. The sales of cotton yesterday reached about 1,500 bales, without further decline beyond the 4 per cent previously noticed, since the receipt of the Pacific's news, and the market closed with a better feeling. The aggregate sales in the past two days reached about 3,500 bales. Flour advanced about 12J cents per barrel, all round, with sales of about 15,000 a 20,000 bblfl., including parcels for future delivery and for export. Wheat ? especially prime qualities, in shipping ord?? advanced from 2c. to 6c. per bushel, with largeteles. Corn was also firmer, at previous prices. Pork was without change of mo ment, while there was a rather better inquiry. A cargo of 6,500 bags Rio coffee sold at private terms on speculation. Sugars were quiet, with very little doing. Room was rather more plenty for Liverpool, and rates for cotton rather easier, with engagements of 2,000 bales at J c. Flour was at 4s., and grain at Hid. a \1), d. in bulk and bags. Rates were firm to London. They were active to the Continent and at full rates. A vessel for London and another for Rot terdam were chartered to load with breadstuff's. Tlie Effort* In Europe to Secure the Tri umph of Abolition Urn In the United Stated. Very considerable gums of money arrived in this country by the Pacific, and other recent steamers, to be used at, the coming election in this State and in other northern latitudes. The triumph of the Allies at Sebastopol has stimu lated the governing classes of Europe to as sault the great works of the federal constitu tion ? to attempt, by the aid of an^alliance with t^e abolitionists of this country, "to over turn the government of the United States. Wo are in the midst of a fearful struggle, in which is enlisted against, us a band of political mad men as fierce and relentless as were the Jews at Calvary. They have been gathering strength at home for twenty years, and now, having for tified themselves by a strong political organi zation, they have given the signal to their Eu ropean allies for an attack upon the constat j tion of the United States. In obedience to this call, money is flowing in from England and France. Every sign betokens a resolute and determined ell'ort to shatter in pieces what the abolitionists lerin ?? the infamous condi tions and covenants of the federal constitu tion.*' Ever since the arrival ol Mrs. Stowe in Eu- ( rope, negotiations have been in progress to procure money from that quarter to secure the triumph of the abolitionists in the Lnited States. It will not be forgotten that Mr. Van Buren has been a long time absent from his country. We are not prepared to say that be has had a finger in the pie. but our readers will not fail to observe that during his Etay on the other side of the water an entire changc has been made in parties on this, lie left bis coun try with a whig, a democratic and an abolition party; he returned to it with a democratic and j an anti-slavery party. One of bis most in timate friends ? Preston King ? :s at the head I of the latter, exhorting tht old democracy to abandon the fields of their past triumphs, and to range themselves under the pirate banners of abolitionism. These are re&arkable coincidences. They r.re followed by the arrival of large sums of money, the sinews of political r.s well as phy sical wars. We thus have a new phase in the elective struggles of our country, as well as new parties to the contests. Well may Know Nothingism open its suspicious and jealous eyes to Eur'> pean intervention in our affairs. Our enemies are vigilant and confident. With the money of their coadjutors on the other side of the At lantic. and their political organization on this? embracing, as they hope and believe, the rank and file of the old whig party, the bogus Americans, and the Van Buren seceders from the democracy ? the coalition is confident, of victory? confident that the -infamous partner ship," a" they denominate the Union, "between the freemen of the North and the slaveholders of the South." will be forever dissolved. Money from Englaud and France in Ameri can elections ! It is not euougb that our trans Atlantic brethren have to pay the expenses of a gigantic contcst with Russia ? that they are threatened by famine in ;heir own country ? they are moved to send to America their money and their counsel to aid in the libera tion of the blacks of the South. All Europe enslaved, with not a Continental press that dare tell the truth and vindicate the cause of popular rights- waging a fierce war to destroy the national independence of Russia, in order to secure supreme control in Western Europe, and especially to enable the aristocracy of England to recover th*k loosened grasp upon power in that country? they Had means, in pursuit of the same object, to send to the United States, with which to break into frag ments the federal constitution. The government of the Union is the only remaining fortress which the people have to defend the cause of popular liberty. That fortress is manned by freemen. It cannot invested, nor successfully assaulted by an op''n enemy. If lost, it will bo lost by the treason of its prarrison ; if surrendered, it will be sur rendered by traitors. The American people have nothing to fear from their erfemies ; it is their friends that now require watching. What the armies of Europe cannot do, may be done in a day by American traitors. The cause of popular liberty i* now sought to be betrayed ? the priec is fixed. li' plot is arranged, tin' first instalment* hav<* hem laid, and every steamer that shall reach cur sh/v ? from Eng land w ill bring our abolition le.W"T8 increased tvutfihutiviis tw the accrual The Central Park? At Last a IUu'okt.? We have at length succeeded In getting a re port out of the Commissioners to whom the matter of the projected Central Park was re ferred. The act under which they were ap pointed bears date 21st July, 1853, aud theic tirst meeting on the f-abject took place on the 20th of November following. Over two years, therefore, have elapsed since their duties as Commissioners devolved upon them, and yet it was only yesterday that their report was lodged in the Street Commissioner's office. Whether they are entitled to the great credit which they claim for this despatch of business, and for the little cost with which they say it was performed, we will see by and by; but in the meantime we will give the salient points presented by their report. The Central Park, as provided for by the act, and aB we now hope to see it laid out, con tains 770 acres, including within its area the State arsenal and two reservoirs. This space of ground comprises some 7,500 lots, which have been estimated at an average cost of $700 each. It is bounded upon the south by a line on Fifty-ninth street, extending from the Fifth avenue to the Eighth, and on the north by a line of like extent on 106th street. This, we believe, will form the most extensive park that exists in any city in the world, with the single exception of Phoenix Park in Dnblin, which contains some three or four thousand acres. Its length in a direct line will be two and one-third miles, and its breadth three-fifths of a mile. The total amount award ed by the Commissioners for the land taken for this purpose Is $5,020,814. This, with the ex ception of $360,482 ? the value of property therein comprised already belonging to the city ? is to be paid to private individuals. The fund for the purpose is to be raised in this way: First, a tax of $1,675,329 has been as sessed on contiguous property supposed to be benefitted to that extent at least, by the pro posed park. This assessment is levied on all property comprised within the space bounded eastward by a line midway between the Third and Second avenues, westward by a line mid way between the Tenth and Eleventh avenues, northward by 116th street, and southward by Forty-second street. Exceptions are made on the Fifth, Sixth and Eighth avenues, where the northern limit is extended to 120th street f and the southern to Thirty-fourth street. Se cond, the balance of the fund ? $2,985,003 ? is to be supplied by the city by means of a loan, for which the city Btock will be pledged, re deemable in forty-five years, and paying an annual interest of five per cent, or in round I numbers $150,000. It is supposed that the in crease of taxable property within a certain distance of the Central Park will, before long, yield a revenue to the city which will more than cover this annual interest. The report being now in the hands of the Street Ci mmissioner, the only thing still want ing to commence operations is the approval of the Supreme Court. The law requires sixty days to elapse between the lodging of the report of the Commissioners and the approval of the Supreme Court, and the 15th of December next has been fixed as the day when the application is to be made. So far so good. We congratulate the citi zens of New York that there is even now a prospect of this great and desirable work being carried out. We congratulate them in ad vance on their possession of a splendid and spacious park, worthy of this great metropolis. We eanr.ot, however, subscribe to the inconside rate, and. we think, undeserved praise so liberal ly bestowed by some of our cotemporaries on the five commissioner who bad this work in hand. We do not see anything particularly deserving of encomium in the fact that they have taken two years :o perform a task which tive good bu siness men. possessed of an ordinary amount of talent and industry, might have accomplice d in as many months. Nor can they justly claim, as they do claim, credit for the small expenses of the commission. They say that these ex penses will not exceed $17,000. But they keep in the back ground the C06t of the surveys, which alone will reach somewhere about $00, 000: and if we did not mention this item here, the public would be under the impression, from the authorized statements made, that the first named sum covered everything. Hut the fact is, it only refers to the per db'tn allowances of the Commissioners ? some $15,000 ? and clerk hire. The Counsel to the Corporation, who has acted a most liberal and praiseworthy part in this aflair. is utterly overlooked in the praise bestowed ? or worse, for he is represented as having rendered his services gratuitously un der the act of April 1. 1854. This presents him in the light of having been compelled to render such s-'rvices gratuitously. But what are the facts? Mr. Dillon, desirous of remov ing every obstacle which might be raised in connection with his fees, to the accomplish ment of this desirable object, actually dralted with bis own hands and procured the passage of an act depriving the Counsel to the Corporation of the usual feet appertain ing to such business, which in this instance would hav? amounted to over fifty thousand dollars. Wh?re such liberal generosity on the part of a public officer is ignored and over looked. how mean and unfounded seem the claims to public gratitude ol wealthy men who would '.ontinue for over two yean sad dling upon 'he city irt asury their per diem al lowance of four dollar--, for performing a duty in whkh as itizens they were so largely inte rested I Wheu these g'-utlemeu follow the ex ample of Mr. Dillon and renounce tb?ir claims ? small thousjh they be? then, but not before, we may : msider them entitled to the thanks of the immunity. What say ye, Mes?rs. Com missioners? Shall y jur names go dowu to pos terity in connexion with this Central Park as men who performed their duty in the matter without fee or reward? If you do not am bition for such honor, let us hear no more silly ' lap-trap about the .bligarion which the city o%v>'s to you. If you worked for your four dollars per day, take it and 1m? satisfied; but do not c laim acknowledgment* which you do not deserve. But if yo i prefer the esteem of your fellow citizen* to ? so much trash a? may be grasped thus," then imitate the noble ''sam ple of .Mr. Dillon, and renottnet your fee*.

It will be recollected that the Cuban Junta published a manifesto some weeks since accounting for the failure of the revo I lutionary movement, and attributing it partly to the hostility of the United States govern ment, partly to the abandonment of the cause by its chief? meaning Gen. Quitman? and partly to the isolated and independent action taken by a prominent member and quondam treasurer of the Junta ? meaning Senor Do mingo Goicouria. This latter gentleman has, in bis turn, published a statement which com pletely turns the tables on the Junta, and shows that that body has exhibited the most contemptible incapacity, and has permitted itself to be duped, defrauded and betrayed by an incapable chief? again meaning Gen. Quit man. In Senor Goicouria's statement, we find the following paragraph:? According, to the contract, the transport cost the enormous sum of $lt 0,000 ? a thing so extraordinary, stupid and scandaloug, that many thought it impouible that eo great a stupidity could possess its author. In ef fect, to gh e $180,000 in advance, for the transportation of 2,500 men from here to Cuba, fixing the t?rm of one month to effect the transportation; $600,000 in bonds, and $2,000 a day for delays, under the condition th?t, perform or not perform the trip, the owner of the vessel was to receive the price of tne charter, is the most ab 'uril and extraordinary thing that ever was conceived. The most singular tact in this matter is, that 1 offered to purchase entire the best of the steamers ready for use, for the Hum of $76,000, and the other steamer I know was bought for the sum of $46,000 after the contract was made. That shows that we could easily have obtained absolute possession of the two steamers for $100,000, while the chartering, reuniting in nothing, has cost ns $150,000, showing that in place of now possessing tw > steamers, we have actually been dispossessed of ono hun dred and tit ty thousand dollars ' But more: In addition to this, though I commuulcated to the Secretary of the Junta and to the General my opinion of the objectionable character of the contract, the former assured me, as well as the club of Havana, that the contract had sur passed his most sanguine anticipations. Coming back to proofs? real facts: was not the Bimple enunciation of this contract sufficient cause to remove immediately the man who could even entertain the idea of making ill' Whether entered into in good or bad faith, was it not apparent in relief, that the foreseen conse quences, if not the malignant intention, was to deprive us of all oar revolutionary means/ The charge against Gen. Guitman's honesty and fidelity, thus.publicly and definitely made by a responsible party, requires to be as dis tinctly and definitely met. Will Gen. Quit man longer keep silence, or will he take mea sures to wipe away this reproach from his fair

fame? His character requires that the charge be immediately and distinctly met and dis proved. We " pause for a reply.-' Oin November Election ? Parties in the City. ? We shall have an interesting time oi* it on election day, especially in this city. Wo shall probably poll the largest vote that will have ever been cast upon this island, because we have so many parties and factions in the field, covering all varieties and shades of opinions, that nobody will have any excuse for declining to vote. For instance, we have the hard shell democracy, and the soft shell ; the I half shell and the double shell, and the Ame rican democracy ; the straight-out silver gray I whigs, and the fusion whigs ; the national republicans, the American republicans, the Know Nothings, the temperance party, the liquor league, the people's party, the city reform party, the abolition party, and the con stitutional rights party ? all of which have separate tickets or separate candidate, here and there in the field, for more or less of our numerous corporation offices. The pressure upon our columns from our advertising cus tomers and the current news of the day, is such that we have not the space to give a list of all the various candidates that desire to be elected. Besides, we have no disposition to spoil the sport with any premature disclosures of the results yet to come. Circulate the do cuments. Fusion in Massachusetts. ? The programme of the late Massachusetts fusion convention at Worcester, is pretty essentially knocked in the head already. The old line whigs of the Web ster ai\d Cboate school have hauled off for re pairs, and the Know Nothings have fallen back upon a separate nomination of Governor Gardner. In fact, the same causes of disrup tion appear to be in operation among the black republican conglomerationists in Massachu setts, .New York and elsewhere. At this rate, Sewardism, free soil and abolition will be re duced to their original elements in good time for a complete reconstruction of things for the Presidency. Keep the ball rolling. Prince John Van Buiikn is appointed to stump the county of St. Lawrence and those regions for the softs. We hardly know where be will first turn up, and must, therefore, rely upon chance for the report of his first gun. We hope that some volunteer correspondent will accordingly dish up his dibut for the He rald. We desire to know whether be sides with the late Tammany speech of Gov. Sey mour, or leans to the free soil dodge of I'res ton King. It is important M'uB R. 'tie will aj j ear ax Tisbe, In Angel tlii* evening. for the last time in that play.

M1ERH POSITION ON THB SOUND DDKS QUESTION, WASUi.YOTt)*, Oct. 4, 1845. The subject of Mr. Seymour's recall from Russia, as ambassador, and the appointment ns successor, of Mr. Seymour, of New York, Una for tome days been un der consideration, rhere appears to exist but one opin ion as to the unfitness of the present incumbent for the post he occupies; out his popularity with the Russian Court renders his removal a point of some delicacy. Be sides, it is somewhat doubtful whether Mr. Horatio Sey mour would be willing to accept this out of the way post, as his ambition points to a seat in the United States ; enate, and even intimates the probability of his pre siding over that body in his constitutional right as Vice President of the United States. Either of these events are in the list of plausible pos sibilities, and particularly the latter, Bince Henry A. Vise, of Virginia, has declared himself in sup port of Horatio Seymour for the Vice Presiden cy. Mr. 'Wise, at present in our city, estimates his own chances for the Presidency with a boldness of calculation that throws aside his public estimate of the majority he received in the late Virginia election. His friends pledge hiin the unanimous Southern vote in the coming convention. And who will bo daring enough to place against this a negative Y Certainly not the friends of Mr. Dickinson, for that gentleman is even now com mitted to Wise, and will labor to secure for him the vote of bis friends, should his own chances be any way doubt ful on the meeting of the convention. The fact is evi dent that the selection of a candidate rests wholly with the friends of these two gentlemen, and although they may not be able to unite upon Mr. Seymour for tho se cond office, his nomination, nevertheless, can be made certain. The platform announced by him a few evenings since at Tammany Hall, is largely drawing to his cons cience the Southern feeling, and must secure for him fa vorable consideration in other parts of the Union, among the liberal and conservative portion of oar people. This state of things presenting itself where would be Mr. Seymour's inducement to accept a foreign mission which must carry him at once into exile, inasmuch as an absence from the United States of two or more years would, in all probability, leave him a blank in the recol lections of hiB countrymen'.' I was informed by a gentleman who was present, that Marcy read with exultation and joy Gov. Seymour's speech in Saturday's Herald. " That," says Marcy, " is the great speech of the day; that will straighten matters in the Empire State." "Not quite so test, Mr. Secretary," says a gentleman present; "perhaps you are not aware that that is a bid for the Presidency, of Vice Presidency at least, and is intended to head off the other democratic aspirants in the Empire State." "You don't really think so?" says Marcy, evidently very much agitated. "Indeed do I," said the gentleman, who immediately saw how the incidental remark was convulsing the old Premier. He, (Marcy) settled back in his easy chair, and, after a mo ments pause, exclaimed, "Zounds ! isit possible? Humph! 'Tis strango I could not have Been that myself. Yes, 'tis evidently a bid for the Presidency?" And a cloud passed ever the old man's brow, which was indicative of great mental anguish. My informant says he left the old Pre mier soon after, cogitating npon future events. The Cabinet had a loDg session on Monday, and another very protracted one to-day. Secretary Marcy is worried a good deal? things don't go to please him. At Monday's meeting the old Premier introduced the question of the Sound dues. He thought the tone of the English and French journals, since the partial victory at Sebastopolt more insolent and dictatorial than before; "but," said he, " it is my purpose not to recede one iota from my former position? war or no war." To-day's Union contains another laudatory article of Gen. Pierce and the administration, written by one of the Cabinet. Also, a letter from Forney, dated Phila delphia, in which he doubts the loyalty of the old Key stone to the administration in the election that comes off on the Oth instant. 1 was informed late this evening that Gen. Pierce re ceived a despatch from Boston*- which despatch he read or the edification of the Cabinet, who were all present that tlie State Convention had appointed delegates to the National Convention and passed a resolution unanimously re-nominating him for next term. Recently the Commissioner of Indian Affairs was ap plied to for information concerning the well known "Car ver <irant," and as to whether the title fiom Carver is good, it being alleged that the Nandwlssee Indians, in 1766 or 1767, conveyed to him 100 miles square of land on the east side of the Mississippi river, between the (alls of St. Anthony and l?ko Pepin. Some of thi" land has, from time to time, been sold, and but recently a speculator invested a thousand dol lars in it. But the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, on the 1st iiiKtnnt. in reply to the inquiry above alluded to, says that the claim has frequently been before the go verrment, and decided by both the legislative and exe cutive branches to be without merit, and that a title from Carver to any portion of the land is not worth as much as the parchment on which the deed is written. The 1 resident has appointed tieo. H. Hopkins, of Vir ginia, Chief iustice of the U. S. Circuit Court for the District of Colombia, to fill tlievucancy cause 1 by the denth of Judge Cranch.

Hie exhibition yesterday showed signs of great im provement, and gave evidonre that before the week is over it will be the most brilliant fair ever held in this city. Tlie article* on exhibition have been well arranged , both for effect and for convenience in examining them. The majority of the fairs heretofore have been held at Castle (iarden, where the accommodations were very limited, and it was Impossible to seo the goods with any thing like pleasure or profit; but now, having ample room, the managers have taken advantage of it to display them properly. On entering the visiter finds himself in the midst of the statuary, some of which is very fine, though here and there are scattered pieces which reflect anything but credit on the heads that designed or the hands that exe cuted them. The colossal Washington, (who looks as though he had just got over a quinsey sore throat, and still had a poultice on the back of his neck,) astride of what h particularly vivid imagination might sup pose to be a horse, still defaces the exhibition, and destroys the generally pleasing effect caused by the varying colors ami appropriate and artistic ar rangements of the i.ther gojds. Thero are other pieces that it would be veil to put out of sight as soon as possible, and among them a group, near the door, of a lion and tiger struggling in the folds of a ser pent. This, together with certain pictures and statues, are altigether too suggestive to be viewed with profit by yotinc females accompanied by their male friends. and may, perhaps, induce lathers to keep their families away, ratli"r than have them witness that which would con vey impure emotions. lhe fruit and flowers are grouped around the fonn tain, and a tempting and prolitable exhibition they make. To the lelt aro the agricultural products, which, though yet few, are very line. Farming implement* loom up largely, and make an instructive show. The machinery will also be very fair. A large department is set nside for India rubber goods, and visiters express no little astonishment at the varied use* to which this useful article is put. Combs, mull boxes, and even pen holder*, are made of it. Near thi? department, in the gal lery. is a very curious Inveution of a poor. Swiss, who Is too p?sir U ? have it patented. It consists of a process bjr which he galvanizes fruit, and converts it into very pretty ornaments, suitable for breastpins and other per sona) adornments. Acorns, bean*, apples, pears, and leaves are thus turned into a new and unthought of use. There are other things worthy of es|iecial mention, but tht pres> on ?ur columns will uot admit of it to-day. The gold and silver ware and dry goods departments areas yet very alim. Of paintings there are but few. and those not go. d. Two very prelty sketches are contributed l?y Elsie llarle, a young girl of eighteen, who, though as yet un kn> wn to fame, lias evidently great talent and will yet make her mat k as an artist of superior merit. The most singular part of h?r story is that a year ago she knew notl Ing whatever of painting. The receipts thus far ham been very encouraging, over three thousand persons having visited the fair since tbe opening. It is expected that the receipts of the first week will pay for the whole exhibition.
