Hie steamship Daniel Webster has arrived at Hew Orleans from Ean Juan, with San Francisco dates to the 5th inst. We hare received a brief sum mary of the news by telegraph, but it contains no thing of interest from California, beyond the grati fying fact that the intelligence from the mining dis tricts was of an encouraging nature. In Oregon the Indians were continuing their depredations. Prom Nicaragua the news is important. Colonq Wheeler, our Minister, had formally recognised the new government, and Colonel Walker reigned in quiet, having undisputed possession of Granada and the Transit route. General Corral, the "last armed toe" of Walker, and who surrendered.and acknow ledged the new order of things, had been found gnilty of treason aiid shot. Espinoza had been ban ished, probably for a similar cause. Walker cer tainly acts promptly in his disposal of dangerous opponents. Colonel Kinney was still vegetating at Greytown, although a number of his party had joined the democratic army, which was daily re ceiving reinforcement*. We have news from Laguayra to the 3d Inst, There was nothing new in politics. Business was dull owing to the non-arrival of the coffee crop? The yield of cotton was the largest ever known Hie cholera was subsiding. There seems to be but little doubt as to the sad and shocking fate that befel the captain and crew of the schooner Eudora on Friday night last, while lying at anchor in Long Island Sound, between City and Hart islands. From a full account of the terri ble affair, as published in another column, we are led to suppose that fonl work indeed has been com mitted. The negro cook arrested on suspicion of being the perpetrator ot this awful crime, tells such contradictory and Improbable stories about the whereabouts of the crew that little doubt exists iu the minds of people residing in the neighborhood of the spot ob to his guilt in the matter. Wilson, for such is the negro's name, is lodged in White Plaius jail. None of the bodies have yet been recovered; but the bed clothes and clothing of the victims, deep ly stained with blood, is proof evident t> the minds of all that a wholesale murder has been committed. Head the account given by our correspondent. , The trial of Louis Baker, indicted for the mnrder of William Poole, was commenced yesterday in the Com t of Oyer and Terminer, but at the rising of the Court at four o'clock, only nine jurors had been empannellcd, in consequence of the difficulty iu find ing men who had not formed un opinion on the mat ter. Several persons were excused for various other reasons, and six were challenged peremptorily by the counsel of the accused. The court room was crowded with spectators, who evinced iutense in terest in the proceedings. The Coroner's investigation into the aircumstancea by which Mr. Edward Neville, late proprietor of the Kings County Hotel, came to his death on the i>th inst, was resumed yesterday. From the fnll report of the testimony, given in another column, it will be seen that the surgeon who made the post mortem examination of the body, is of opinion that Nr. Ne ville's death was not caused by violent blows upon the head, as had been conjectured by many per sous. It will also be seen that the fireman and deck hand who were on duty on the ferry boat on the night on which Mr. Neville disappeared, are quite positive that he was on board about 2 o'clock, and that be did not go ashore when the boat readied her destination on the Williamsburg side. The statements of these witnesses are so clear that the impression is irresistible that Mr. Neville perished by his own act. The investigation will ?>e continued to-day, when, perhaps, other circumstances may be brought to light which will pluce a different aspect upon this sod and mysterious affair. Our despatches from Washington this morning are unusually interesting. They give the latest dc velopcments respecting our affairs with Great Bri tain, the movements of the politicians relative to the organization of both houses of Congress, the sub jecta which occupy the attention of the Cabinet, and other matters of grave and trifling importance. The Capital is fast filling up. Already a large muuber of Congressmen hive arrived, and the city begins to wear an animated look. Hon. Thomas J. Busk has l>cen unanimously re elected by the Legislature of Texas to the United States Henate. Evacuation Day was celebrated yesterday very appropriately by the military atid citizens generally, notwithstanding the Common Council, in a fit of doubtful economy, refused to vote funds to defray expenses. We give in another column a foil ac count of the display of soldiery and their review by the authorities in the Park. The Board of Supervisors met yesterday, but did not transact any business. They adjoornod to Mon day next. The Board of Aldermen were in session last even ing. The report of the Special Committee on the nativity of fbe Chief of Police was made the specie order for Monday next. A preamble and resolution setting forth the necessity of having an up town post office, and requesting the Mayor to urge upon the Postmaster* General to establish one at the junction of 81 tth avenue and Broadway, were adopted. The notation was also adopted by the Board of Council men- wul uot ^ Ma>"r- while he is about it, aaVacatethe establishment of six. ten, or even twelve ? ?et offices in the city' A dozen would only afford proper facilities for the business of thia great metropolis. The ltoard of Councfcnen met last evening. No business of general inter** was transacted. The salts of cottoa ye.vtenlay readied about 2.000 boles, closing Dim.

' The Next F> iBilliwy.The tncnutnf Aglta. tlon?Interesting View* and Spceotatleiu ?f the Party Pre**. We surrender a large portion of our availa ble Hpace thin morning to a curious miscel laneous chapter on Presidential politics, from our newspaper oo temporaries of both sec tions of the Uuion, representing the various active parties in the Held for '*he succession. These extracts, trough att'ord:?hg nothing de finite oonevrning the geueral issues and pros pers before u*, are still valuable and instruc tive, for they are like fragments of driftwood scattered upon the surface of the agitated waters, iud'.catiug the siugular cross currents, eddies and ground swells ot the rising tide. In this butch of speculative and suggestive extracts there are several features worthy of special uotioc, and the most remarkable is that which betrays the geaerul dissatisfactiou of the democracy with Mr. Pierce's administration, and their repudiation of his pretensions for another Presidential term. The Cabinet organ at Washington, upon this sul^ect, delivers a .pompous and mock heroic lecture to an Ark ansas brother in the church for daring to ques tion the availability of Mr. Pierce and the out standing old fogies of the day. On the other hand, the article which follows from a staunch Pennsylvania democratic paper, gives the pipe layers for Mr. Pierce and all concerned with him at Washington, very clearly to understand that be and they must, move off the track; that they have been weighed aud found wanting, and must now make way for the old wheel-horse of the Pennsylvania democracy, James Bucha nan. The tone and temper of this article show distinctly enough that Pennsylvania has con sented to set him aside as often as she can stand it?having in 1840, '44, '48 and '52 agreed to forego his claims and to wait a little longer, in deference to the will of the party. Patience is patience, bat the life of man is limited, and the Penneylvanians are now in earnest. Tbey will very likely make the nomi nation of Mr. Buchanan an issue at Cincinnati, involving the gain of a large majority or the probable loss ot his State in the election. It will next be observed that the Virginians are serious regarding the availability of Mr. Wise; that the Cabinet organ, par excellence, mo destly seconds the motion, while the Georgia Know Nothings are of the opinion that the terri ble and impetuous champion of Accomac would "drive the country to the devil in less than six months." There is also an ominous silence among the Van Buren democratic organs of the State of New York touching Mr. Wise They Lave not forgotten his Punic wars in Congress against the pet bauk aud Custom House officials of the second term of Old Hickory, and the disastrous administration ot the "Little Magician." Before nominating Mr. Wise, should he be considered at Cincinnati as the man for the crisis, it would then be well to sound the leaders of our Van Buren faction, to sec if they can overlook the past, forget and forgive, and, for the sake of democratic con cord and the "spoils," rally to the support of the redoubtable and fearless Henry A. Wise. As matters stand, however, there is here, in the availabilities of Mr. Wise, a hitch, which places him in the rear of Mr. Buchanan. In the third place, the extracts we republish frcm the Seward organ at Buffalo, betray an extraordinary quickness of vascillation con cerning the Presidential aspiratious aud quali fications of " Live Oak George Law." On the 20lh of the month our Buffalo cotemporary substantially pronounces " Live Oak George" a whole team, a host iu himself, and a very for midable candidate. On the 22d, the same paper hopes that " the farce (of Live Oak George) is played out," pronounces him a rough steamboat speculator, aud thinks that there are one or two steamboat tucn ia Buffalo equally accepta ble. But as " Lire Oak George" has cast his fortunes into the hands of the American party, and as his name, popularity and influence have done much, as the Seward organs themselves admit, to give the Know Nothings the supre macy in this commonwealth, we incline to the opinion that " the farce" has not been played out, and may possibly not be played out till November, 1850. Next, we have two democratic estimates of the campaign?n philosophical and an arithme tical estimate?both worthy of notice. The philosophical estimate is from a Texas paper, and warns the people of the South against the danger of being humbugged by an equivocal Know Nothing platform on the everlasting nigger question; because, according to our Texas friend, the Kdow Nothings have their strength in the North, amoug the free soil op position runks, and can't sacrifice them. On the other lmnd, as they will want a Southern State or two to give them any chance of suc cess, our Texas philosopher is quite sure they will patch up a plausible dodge on the great slavery issue, calculated to avoid any serious alarm to Northern free sutlers, while it shall secure a satisfactory Southern interpretation. This is an old trick, but n* it has never paid expenses we presume that the National Ameri can party will adopt Ihc plainer constitutional platform ol'non-intervention. When the time comes we shall see. The arithmetical democratic estimate of the chances of the party, based upon the results of the late State elections, is from the Cincinnati Enquirer. It will be observed that the statis ticiati in this instance proposes to dispense with New York, and still elect the democratic nominee. The Baltimore Ca?.? Convention of 1818 tried this experiment, and the result then, o?d the results which have followed, will be remembered by the Convention of "5?. It will not be safe for the democracy to go into the election again consenting to the loss of New York. In "44, not less than in '48, she was the balance of power which decided the grand issue, and will, in all probability, hold the balance of power in 1856. The first essen tial to the democratic party, then, is the re union of the two factions in this State; but as it is mauitcst that this re union cannot be con summated upon Mr. Pierce, or Marcy, or Cash- I ing, or Jeff. Davis, or Cass, or Douglas, or Dickinson, wc repeat that the choice is nar- I rowed down at present to Buchanan or Wise. In conclusion, our closing extract from the New Bedford Mo wn/, taking a calm bird's eye view of the whole field, will repay a deliberate perusal. Everything is yet adrift All parties and all sections have yet to be ..rgaotxud for tho all important pitched battle, upon the issues of wvich will depend the fBt?re destiniea of this, ot.r grenf and glorious republic, for gooJ or for or*'I. Within a month the backbone of the Seward Holy Anli-slavcry Alliance has brcn broken, and the late overshadowing <lan grrs of a purely sectional disunion contest .have cihJ>v<1 to menace us. A hue opening has been made for the formation of a great na tional, practical American party, and the de feat or succeBB of the democracy will depend entirely upon the merits of such au opposition organization. A month or two of Congress will lift the fog, and enable ub at least to de cipher the outlines of the beadluuds along the eoust. We uwait the organizatiou ot'Congress. Our Relation* with England?Tn?e Cause of tlt? War Eultvv.ent. i nvate letters by the Canada, which are singularly continued hy a special despatch from Washington, printed elsewhere, throw some light on the recent treuble with England. It 'nas all along been conjectured that the uear prospect of tiie Presidency hud somethiug to do with the sudden squall. It appears uow too certain to admit of doubt that the threa tening aspect of our relatious with the British government may he traced in no slight mear sure to the maladroit management and in trigues of the Honerable Win. L. Marcy. When Mr. Pierce became President the sub jects of negotiation or dispute with England were five iu number?the Canada reciprocity question, the fisheries, the Central Arnericau question, Cuba and Ilayti, or Dominica. It would have been a very simple matter for a J man of diplomatic ability to have settled all five satisfactorily at one and the same time. Unhappily, this could not be done without al lowing some one to make capital out of the arrangement, and Mr. Murcy would permit no thing of the kind. He therefore settled sepa rately the Canada reciprocity and the tbhnry questions, obtaining much worse terms than he would have obtained bad he offered to set tle them together; and allowed Buchanan aud Soul6 to run riot on the Cuba question up to a certain point, when, to win the favor of the mer cantile class, he turned round upou the un wary diplomatists and bMftg them down. Matters were in this^bndition, and Mr. Buchanan, perceiving how hopelessly he had been duped, was tor returning home at once, when the first symptoms of the enlistment busi ness were made known to Marcy. He saw atu glance the advantage that might be taken of them; but, aB the skilful sorgeou oftcu scari fies the part before operating, Marcy pre ceded his onslaught on the enlisUn- ats by a fierce despatch on the Mosquito question. This was sent in June or July last. The British government, knowing nothing of any new sub- I ject of quarrel, replied to Marcy iu a de termined tone, reviewed the whole tenor of former negotiations on the Ceutrul American questions, and took occasieu to advance Lord l'almerston's peculiar crotchety views on these points at great length. A cry shortly after this the enlistment scan dal became public, and great alarm was caused in England by the news of the excitement it had created here. The mercantile interest took fright at the very thought of a dis turbance with America; and Lord Pulmerston, in order to anticipate the storm, rose in his place in Parliament and auuouuced that, in order to satisfy the United States govern ment, not only had enlistments been stopped within the frontiers of this couutry, but orders hud been scat to the British provinces to stop tliem there likewise. This apolo gy, Lord Palmerstou trusted, would remove any little irritation that might have existed previously, anil diplomatic intercourse would go on as smoothly as usual. But the chief of the British Cabinet did not understand the true purport, of Marcy-s Mosquito despatch. Much less did he foresee that about tbe time his conciliatory speech was arriving in America, the trial of Hertz would take place, gravely inculpating the British Minister ' to Washington, and Mr. Gushing would write letters branding the British agents iu this couu try us malefactors. Still less did he imagine that before his attempt to conciliate reached Washington, Marcy would have replied to bis former despatch on Central American affairs in a manner and language falling but little short of an absolute provocation to war. This lust despatch of Marcy'9 embraced all the pleurals of dispute?the enlistment business the Central American question*, the conduct of Crampton aud thu British consuls, the Do minican squabble, uud the policy of Great Britain in general. It was especially eloquent on tbe Mosquito question; being based, in this particular, on a former correspondence of Ab bott Lawrence's on the same srnject, aad Mr. Marcy huving availed himself, of course with- , out acknowledgment, of the arguments which Mr. Luwrence hail used. I This despatch reached England at the same time us the trial and confession of Hertz, unit the letters of Mr. Cusbing. Itelyiag confident ly on the ample apology he had made in Par liament, Lord l'almerston was thunderstruck by the contents of this unexpected mail. Where he expected to lind fair words and .a civil acknowledgment of his concession, he found, as Mr. Crauyiton said, the trial of the British Minister actually going on at Philadel phia, the United States Attorney General wilting letters calling him and the other British agents malefactors, and the Uuitcd Siatcs Secretary of State apparently rum sacking 1 is brain and his records to mak* up a i rushing case against the British govern ment. Overwhelmed by the shock, on thi rl ur of the moment Lord Palmerston tele graphed :o Paris for Sir llcnry Bulwer, whose | know ledge and American experience he thought might be serviceable to him in the emergency; and as Marcy's despatch was of u character to be not inconsistent with the most violent measures, resolved to act himself at odcc with energy. The fall of Sebastopol had rendered him less conciliatory than formerly From the Baltic was returning n large fleet which it was of the highest importance 'o pre serve in a state of efficiency for operations to lie undertaken next spring. Palmcrston gave orders for a powerful fleet to be rcnty to sail within twenty-four hours for the West India station, and proceeded under cover uf this menace to indite a despatch to th? United States government, indignantly repelling the imputations of Mr. Cushing, and demanding satisfaction for the inault offertd to Mr. Cramp ton. That despatch has been received at Washing ton?deny it, as the Cnion may. the fact is so And the net result of the magnificent i itrigue which Marcy has been plotting in order t<? operate on the Cincinnati Convention?the up shot of all the fine despatches which he has been writing in order that he shall regain a little of the glory which he so quickly lo-t after the Koszta letter ?is simply, that we ar> within an ace of actual war with England, ami thai from being the aggrieved party, it is up.,,, us that the demand for satisfaction is n-.w wade. W bat the mercantile and conservative nter'sts of this country will think of the con duct of the statesman who, to serve hie own private views of ambition, has dragged the ! nation to the verge of a war, we will not un dertake to say. In England, we gather fro n our letters, that the utmost indignation is felt among the financial and commercial classes at the reckless conduct of Lord I'almeratou. upon n bom the chief olivine of the squabble with this country is laid. It seems not unlikely that a combination may l?c formed for the purpose of ousting him from office simply on that ground. His crotchets have doubtless been mischievous; but let if Ire remembered, neither is our Secre tary blameless in the matter. r?tJ? L A X K 8 T li & W f> BY ELECTRIC AND PRINTING TELEGRAPH!.

OUR RELATIONS WITH ENGLAND?THE POINTS OP THE DIBPUTB?MARGE'S POLIO*? BUCHANAN AND FALMKR8TON?THE WEST INDIA FLEET?THE WAR FEELING IN ENGLAND, ETC., ETC. Washington, Nov. 56, 1865. There has been eo much nonsense circulated in the (iresH relative to our relations with Englaud, that I think it necessary to send you the salient points in the affair, as gleaned from the official cespatches and private letters by the Pacific and Canada. The whole trouble?euch as it is?is Mercy's work, and intended to make capital for the Cincinnati Convention. The enlistment business being Marcy'a and Uushiug's latest dooge, I will tell yoa about that first. When It became apparent that efforts were being made to enlist a legion In the United States, our government s?nt a protest to the Biftisb Cabinet. The result was a promise on tne part of Lord Paimeraton that recruiting in our territory should be stopped at once. Ho said iu Parliament that toe English government did n >t wldi to break the laws of any Country, and in order to prose his

good faith Paluieraton also promised to stop recruiting in British North America. This was the attitude of Dowolng street when the trial of Herte commenced in Philadelphia, and the letters of Attorney General Curbing, in which L >rd Clarendon and Mr. Crsmptou weie indirectly called malefactors, weie read in court and received in England. After the apparent pacific and conciliatory tone of the British Cabi net, these manifestoes of Cushing weie considered insult ing, and the fire was fanned by Mr. CiaiaptonV announce ment that the American bark Maury was being fitted ou at New York as a Russian privateer, although the Maury affair was a mere pretext to Buchanan in his interviews with Clarendon on the 28th ult. and 1st instant. The British Cabinet though*, tilings looked threatening, and within twenty-four hoars alter the receipt of the news ef the commencement of Herts's trial, the addition to the West India fleet was urder sailing orders. At :lre some time the tlritish government demanded explanation and redress from the United States, which demand has not yet boon acceded to. Tliis is the stale of things: We first complained of the enlistment busiuees; Knglund apologised, and promised redrew. Wc then pitched into the English agents and Cabinet, and tho licet with strong despatches wis sent out. It has bet n Marcy's policy all along to protract the selthment of all the disputes between Englund and the I mted btates. I.ast summer Buchanan found that lie could do nothing more, sml made up his mind to come home ia October. Marcy saw that capital could be made out of the Central American business, and straightway lie re opened the Mosquito question, in a fisry despatch lent out In June or July last. This was responded to iu a tone equally defiant, iu a despatch containing all Pal mers ton's crotchets about the Central America dispute. In Oclober Ma cy sent Buclianan another fiery despatch, embracing all the points in dispute bet we sir the two coun tries. First, the violation of the CUyton-Bulwer treaty by a settlement: second, the enlistment business; third, the conduct of the Biltish Consul at Domioica, tn interfering wlih our treaty, and generally, the policy of England on the Cuba question. On other questions, aad especially that pertaining to tho Mosquito matter, Marcy got his argnmonts from a pievlt us correspondence bc-.woen the late A ibott Isiw icnce, once Minister to England, and tho foreign office there. Mr Inwrense had access to valuable documents in the archives of the British government. These enabled him to relute Clarendon, Paimeraton and Hulwor. All this was used by Marcy, and Abbott Inwrenoe'a terms will probably be suopressed. Tins last despatch reached London In October, and with 'lie Ilerti trial and Uushiug's letters, created the teruble flare-up whi h eventuated in sending the fieet to Bermuda. The British government was charged with violating its own treaty?with violating tho American law about foreign enlistments?with a general policy of hostility to the Unite 1 States in every way. In ibis mat ter Marcy and Buchanan arc endeavuring to out-to evch other in getting up a war furore, to put England iu the wrong and to annoy Paimeraton and Clarendon. Thli Is dune to make capital for the Cincinnati Presidential Con vention. All the papers will be brought out by the next Congrats. this is an outline of the British imbroglio.

Of the delegates to oar democratic State convention, Buchanan has 110, Dallas 20.

Ibe steamship Daniel Webster, from l'unU Arenas, Ni caragua, on the 10th instant, arrived here to-day, with California dates to the 6th instant. The mining news is of an enoouroging nature. The Indians in Oregon were continuing their depreda tions on an extensive scale. An additional force of 200 men had left San Francisco to join Col. Walker, who still retained quiet possession of Granada and the Transit route. He was daily receiving accessions. On the 13th instant, Mr. Wheeler, the United States Minister at Nicaragua, formally recoguUed Walker's go vernment. Genet al Corral had been found guilty of treason and shot, and Kspinoza had been banished. Col. Kinney remained at Grey town, but flfty of his fol lowers had joined the Walker party.

Ibe extract from a letter in the above paragraph which states that au "impression prevails that she has broken down," is nearly correct; hut the statement that she had been nlneti en days at sea Is without foundation. It will be recollected that she returned on the 25th ult. with her shaft broken, and 1* now at pier 54, Eist river, re psirlng. The St. Isruis took her place and sailed on the 26th ult. The steamship Nashville, Captain Berry, arrived yes terday from Charleston, bringing us papers in advance of the mail. Board of County Cnnvaaeere.

Nlblo'a Garden?The Ballet* This popular house, with its spae'ous soils, always a giorrut, is peculiarly the home of the ballet; and, there fore, it was no wonder that a jammed house assisted at the debut ot the new company which MM. Antoine, Fran cois snd Jerome Ravel have lately Imported from Paris. Young New York always comes out strong ior what Mr Tibbs calls "leg pieces," and the number of astonishingly long-skirted coats and remarkable trowsers at the Gar den last night was fearful. The ltavels and If. Paul Brlllant are very well known to the public here, and the point to which all the Utripietia were directed, last night, was the rntrie of Mile. Robert, who made her premiere pat in America. The piece in which she made her ap pearance, "Katey, the Vlvaudlere," is exactly like at-' other bailets?no plot worth mentioning?plenty of ab surditie?lots of pretty ilsnces, and any quantity of sparkliug music?nearly spoiled last night by the ineffi ciency of the orchestra. Mile, itobert is what our sporting friends would call a thoroughbred daimute. She has not a beautiful face, but her figure is symmetrical, and her jamlaare Jolie enough for all pructical and ornamental purposes. She is a thorough artist a?mistress of all the mysteries otpoie, en treihat pete, pirouette and Aplomb, the is equal to Seto in beauty of altitude, anil has all the vivacity and daah ot Melisse, without her gacclirrie. iter pantomime is elabo rate and generally expressive. She made a "hit," and may congratulate herself on naviug pleasel a rather cri tical audience. The troupo is strong in the female de partment, as we noticed by the finale, in which Robert, Gene, Windel, (all debut*,) Mine. Marzetti and Flora Leh mann, indulged. Miles. Gene and Windel are clever artists, hut not b. illiaut enough to justify any violent outbreak i f enthusiasm. Rachel in Cuba The lute Havana papers contain the announcement.of twenty-four representations by Rachel at the Tacon theatre, commencing in December. The prices are to be for the twelve nights, best places $240 (or $20 per night;) second places, $48; third, $36; fourth, $16. One of the papers says that these prices are too high, and that Mile. Rachel cannot get an aodisnce for one representation, much less twelve. They recommend M. Felix to consult Baruuru as to the effect of high prices in Havana. Anniversary ot the New York Bible Society. The thirty-second anniversary of the New York Bible Society was held last evening in Rev. Dr. Alexander's, chunch, corner of Nineteenth street and Fifth avenue^ The attendance was quite numerous, and much interest, was manifested in the proceedings. Mr. E. M. Kingsley pret-ided. and the exercises were commenced with the reading of a portion of the 119th Psalm, and prayer by the Rev. lb1. Holdich. The annual report of the trea surer wus read by Mr. Henry Olmsted, from which it ap pears that the total receipts for the past year amounted to $17,193 63, and the expenses to $17,193 63, leaving no balance in the tieasury. The report of the secretary was next iead by Mr. Win. Allen Butler. The number of bibles and testaments distributed during the last twelve months was, us stated in the report, 65,888. These were published In different languages, and distri buted among the different classes of the population of this city, its criminal, benevolent and other insti tutions. l'ortions of these were sold, and a portion given gratuitously. Bales to the number of 1,710 bibiet and tesaments have been also made at the society's de pot itory, making the total issues of the year 67,CM. Mr. Watson, one of the agents of the society in this city., visited 10 777, ol whom 1,688 were found totally destitute of the Bcriptures, and 109 partially so. 322 families re lused to receive it. The wnole number of volumes dis tributed was 2,674, of which 118 bibles and 277 testaments were sold al prices generally below their cost, and the remainder we're given to 4117 families, tn which no member ol them was able to read, or in which, for some other sufficient csnse, it was improper to make the gift, wee*' left ur supplied, exoept in certain cases with the new tes tament. Mr. Watson has recently closed a visitation oK the twenty-two police stations of the city, and copies ot Ihe bib e have been furDished by him to such of them as weie ur.supplied, or where Lhe copy presented was worn out. Messrs. Conrad, Killing and Smy the have continued. their faithful labors uumng the newly nnweo emigrants. The decrease in emigration during tfti past year lias caused a consequent diminution in the nutulero; the bibles distributed. The distribution by the emigrant agents reaehod 7,707, of which 226 were bibles and 7 482 were testaments in various languages. To the Sunday, industrial und other schools of the city, 2,473 bibles and 2,880 testaments have been given; t > hotels, 710 bibles. The Committee on Military I'osts have, by the ah Jof Mr. Bmy the, placed about 900 volumes in the hands of reciuitiiig officers at the diOVreat stations in the my. Among the Immune and criminal institu tions. 4 012 bibles and 2,782 testaments were distributed, while, the number given on board of vessels ot different nations urriiii-g ul this perl and th? smaller craft on our rivets was little lees than 1( 0.000. The increase in the < istrlbution of volumes in this dep&itment lust yeir, over the previous twelve mouths, wus, of bibles 1,827, and of testaments 26,812. The report concluded by speaking of the present prosperous condi ion of the society and ihe hopeful prospect of Its labors in the future. Rev. Daniel March, of Brooklyn, then addressed the i no it-noo on the necessity which existed for renewed ? ft'ortsjn the distribution of the Scriptures. He spoke of 'he wonderful effects which had been produced through the means ol the missionary enterprises from the times ol he Apostles to the present day, and of the great results which hare followed to the cause of religi in from the establishment of Bible Societies. These, he said, were in calculable, and could n>t devalued by money merely. They were as far above al! pecuniary considerations as heaven is above earth. Bucn societies as the New York Bible Society met the emigrant as he lauded on our' shores and placed In his hands the words of eternal li'e. They presented him with a hook, which enabled him to become a true citizen aud to give his support to the laws and the Institutions of the country. He closed by ex horting bia hearers to renewed efforts in the maintaln auce of the society. Rev. Mr. Mahih was followed by Rev. Dr. Adams and Rev. Mr. Milburn, and at the conclusion of their remarks the meeting adjourned. Brooklyn City Srwi.
