The "tctuiifhip Pulton, from H?vrc, 12th instant. Arrived yenterday. Her uUvioes are not so late as those previously received by the Canada via Hali fax, a telegraphic summary of which appeared in Saturday morning's edition. We publish elsewhere ?etu r- from our correspondents at Ediuburg, and Toledo, (Spain,) and severul extracts from ottr lile* of foreigi journals, which will be found highly in teresting. An arrival at Provincetown reports that the Cu aard steamer Curlew, from Halifax for Bermuda, ran ashore op theMorth Breaker, off the latter pyrt. at four o'clock on the morning of the l^th inst, anil sank in three miates. The crew saved their lives, bat the mails were lost. It was expected she would prove a total loss. The steamship Daniel Webster, dne at New Or leans on Monday last, had not arrived at that port yesterday, and it was feared she hail been seized by General Walker. llHh excitement prevailed in New Orleans in ccnse ffeMce of her non-arrival. In the State Seuate yesterday, the new apportion, xuent ol' the Senate districts was reported , a list of which will be found among the proceeding* this morning. The bill to amend the laws relative to foreign insurance companies in New York was passed. a? was also the bill to regulate the sale of potatoes by weight Is the A si-embly, the majority of the committee on Mr. Bordan's plan for a railroad in Broadway having refused to report, the whole matter was referred to the Committee of the Whole. A bill was introduced to oblige ferry steamers to carry small boats. The Tenant House Committee of the legislature terminated yesterday their investigations for tht present. Suggestions of tenant house landlords and builders were further had as to the best plan to be adopted for the future contraction of tenant hou?es. A look was also taken by some of the committee through the Eighth ana Ninth wards. In this portion of the city were found tenements excelling any hitherto examined in respect to their dilapidated and untenantable condition. A place was stumbled upon in Laurens street where were fonnri living, in most bpantifnl harmnny gpnuino and practical samples of nigger worshippers. An assig nation house was slightly looked into, but a tho' rough search was deemed extra official, and the party retreated. The committee propose ti offer a lesolntion directing them to continue their re rearches after the close of the present legislative term. We hope such resolution will be passed. The condition of the tenant houses of the city calls for ?omc stringent enactments, tint, if possible, tho aeeoramoditions for the multiplied poor who occu py the-e tenements may be improved, and they be made less the victims of cormorant landlords. According to the report of the City Inspector, there were 421 deaths in the city during the past week, namely, 76 men, 82 women, 137 boys, and 126 girls, showing an increase of sixty over the m-~' tality of the week previous. Of the whole numhe^ 11 died of bronchitis, 4 of conjestion of the lungs, 56 of consumption, 36 of inflammation of the lungs, 7 of conjestion of the brain, 26 of dropsy in the head, 4 of inflammation of the brain, 7 of disease of the heart, 10 of dropsy, 6 of diarrhoea, !? of in flammation of the bowels, 5 ol smallpox, 5 of epi] lepsy, 5 of erysipelas, 8 of typhus fever, 44 of con pulsions (infantile), 8 of croup, .? of delirium tre" mens, 31 of scailet fever, 3 of hoping cough, and 1* of marasmus. There were also six premature births. 24 cases of stillborn, and eight deaths from violent causes. The following is the classifijation .?f disease- ?

The train of t ars from Philadelphia for Pittsburg, yesterday, was thrown down an embankment fifteen feet, and two of the patseu>?ers seriously injured. Time speculations in produce have become a serious evil, and have been pushed to a greater ex tent within th? pn-t six months than ever before. \ bad principle, declared to l?e unbinding at the Hoard of the Stock F.xcbange t>y the Legislature, has n carried into the market for produce, where it is recognized by law and made obligatory upon fontrai tors. A j.artv -ells, by sample, Mi, 000 bushels of yc'low corn, deliverable in the la^t week of March, and otb rs do t*ie same tiling. A fight is then carried on in sto' k?. < ?ne ;?arty tries to de press prices, i-o ?s to gam a margin; while the other, from similar motives, straggles to keep them np. When the com i.? tendered its quality may be ( Jyceted to, and thu.s lead to vexatious dispute < The market, in the meantime, becomes unsettled. Thirtc are often two prices in the market. First, hose established by (be legitimate laws of supply and demand and those made by the contra' t sv- m. The same time tales, also, pervade the provision market, and prices are influenced in precisely i similar way. Just before the maturity of large con tracts known to be out-tandlng, there arc struggle to get up a "corner," just as in sto.ks, and juices become excited and generally advance. After the contracts are settled, either by the delivery of the produce or by paying the difference- prices again become settled. The cotton market continued active yesterday, and prices steady. The sales embraced aintit 4,600 bales, chiefly in transitu. The Canada's new produced no ettect. The intelligence from the Houth exercises more influence just now than thit from Liverpool. Flour was firmer, with increased activity in sales. The medium and lighter grade were held at enhanced rates, without holders as a general thing being able to realize. Common to good straight Htate brands were sold at 16 87? a *7 26. A pa reel of good red Tennessee wheat sold lit $1 70, for milling.

Mili tary organs, dating from Vinseuaes aud Wool wich. cliDg fondly to the hope that there will be more fighting, more vacancies, more pro motions. The news does not eontirm any view of this kind. It is formally announced that Prussia ha? been iovited to send Plenipotentiaries to the Conference. This is stated in the Mmiteur, which further gives the names of the Bxroa d-i ManteuS'el and tho Count de Hatztield as the Prussian Plenipotentiaries. To reilize the tall mportance of this measure it is aecessiry to understand accurately the position ol Prussia. Kver nnce the war began, it has been cus omary in England to treat Prussia as a Rus sian in disguise. The Prussian Court acid peo ple have been credited with strong Russian sympathies, and regarded as enemies of the allies. It has been supposed that pusillanimi ty alone prevented Prussia's drawing the eword ? on behalf of Russia, of course; and elaborate arguments have beea made to shjw that the contest ia Germany was bat ween Prussia, which leaned to the side of Russia, and Austria, whose treaty stipulations bound her with more or less closeness to the side of the allies. In England the Prussian King and Court have been reviled, aad made a common laughing stock? all from the general impreesion that they were so strongly in favor of Russia. Now, all this is much more likely to be the fruit o.' the disappointment of the allies than a truy picture of the facts. If we saw the Russian instead of the Western side, it is quite likely that Prussia would be seen playing a very dif ferent part. One or two Ru?sian voices have already l?een raised to deprecate the unworthy attitude ol Prussia? standing by and looking on tamely, when it's monarch's nephew is s > bait! pre'std. Doubtless such ia the view ol the bulkol' the Russian nobility. Taey think, as Nicholas did, that honor bouad Prussia to take Bides with Russia in the war; and they are quite as indignant at her dexterous neu I trality as the maritime powers hive appeared to be. From the very beginning of the war, th* Truf^ian government announced their policy to be that of neutrality. From tkat policy no Prussian statesman has ever deviali* for a moment. Prussians saw that by remaining neutral they saved themselves, in the first place, from the cost and dangers of war : secondly, they converted their country into tbe great mart for Russian produce; and, thirdly, they placcd Austria? their great rival ?in a false position, by driving her to the very verge of participation in the war. Two years ago. therefore, peace became the settled policy of the kingdom; and in spite of doubtless very vehement appeals from the Czar on the one fide, and taunts and threats from the allies oa llic otto*, i* that polloy P?>?ooi? *ao ?ibcicd. It is not to be supposed she will desert it now. On the . oootrary, though she has re mained at peace, common prudence has obliged her to retain her army on a war footing, at no small expense. Accurate figures are not readily ascertained; but it is quite likely that 'he standing army of Prussia? independently of the Landwehr? numbers at the present mo met t over lioO.OOO men. We take it therefore that Prussia is more anxious lor pease than ever, and that her admission to the Conference is a sure indication of the decided intention c'. all parties to make peace. It does not neces saiily indicate a Russian preponderance, a* some have supposed. for the reasons we hav e mentioned; but only an overruling wiBh <? < the part of all the Plenipotentiaries to put end to the war at any rate. About details there may. indeed there are likely to be differences of opinion. BiF as is suggested very properly in tho news by the Canada, when it comes to drawing a boundary line through liessaraV*1. the proper persons to do the work are evident ly not lawyers and politicians in a Paris drav iDg room. The task mut be performed by en gineers on the spot; ana whether Russia gains or losts a few acres, more or less, than sh3 ex pected to lose, it may be taken for graa'el that there will be no more Sebastop :1s. no more Inksrmanns to avenge the iojury or vin dicate the line. Ifit were otherwise. Austr yrcu'd roi venture, as she has done, t> b -g to disband her army. Ilir nrtioptlllnn Medical < olie^tt. The recent anniversaries of the sever. I institutions for medical instruction in tl? - oily, give jiee to a little reflection relative lj i Lis most impoTtant branch of learning. Tu - fact that ev. ry individual in the whole com ti j is interested in the education of those wb . practice the healing art. either a- patient O: phvsician, is (=0 palpable that no apology is necessary for devoting a brief space ia oar columns to this subject. Setting out with t^e proposition that no man or wouun Bhouid be entrusted with the treatment ol disease whose education has not been properly attended t j, theeoroiUiy haicly requires demonstration that evfry such person is bound to avail him self of those means which shall secure th<? nearest approach to perfection in Lis educ tion. New York and Philadelphia arc now admii ed,^"T. rztrllenff, to be the emporia of msdicil science in this country. Philadelphia main tains two colleges, each boasting an alumnus of aear'y or quite a century, and each pv? -essirg a faculty of instruction, in the cata logue of which some of the most diatinguiohid names in the pfofessioa appear. The grad i ate* ol those schools, or many of them, are pointed to a* among the brightest ornaments of the profession, and from the professors in those institutions m ar-' able to solact flonrte of the most distinguished of the medical lit*ru i. The colleges of Philadelphia are justly sources of pride and congratulation t? the mo?t fas tidiously patriotic nati.e American wb;> ev r aunounc(d himcelf leady to sacrifice himv;lf upon the national altnr. New Yoik, however, pos.-e?s<;? ciaims up-. a the atti-ntion of those inteiestcd in tj?e came j o' medical education, which should not l*c overlooked. I'ntil the elixir viltc of the an cient alchymists is discovered, and eternal youth and bloom, without fear of disease, arc thus ensured to the world, it is worth whilo for till ih(<?? who propose ^ualif/ing themselves tv practice medicine or surgery to see what ad vantages they may derive from pursuing their studies in this city; and it is of no less conse quence to those who anticipate falling into the doctor's hands, that they know how accurately their medical advisers have fitted themselves for the responsibilities wbich they have as sumed. Without instituting invidious compa risons, then, let us briefly notice some of the facilities whict axe afforded the medical stu dent by the institutions lor instructing in that science in New York. In point of numbers the medical schools < f this city exceed those ot Philadelphia. The;d are at present three colUges in New ^ ork, each holding its exercises in a beautiful a *1 convenient edifioc, and possessing all the ap pointments at.d furniture which characterize 1 a well organiwd institution. of tLew bas just closed its winter session? <* hie b was attended by above tnree hundrta students -by sending forth to the world more than one bun rtrtd duly qualified physicians and surgeon*. The lectures of the others have b?;en attended by two hundred and fifty, and one hundred and fifty students, respectively, and these lass named have graduated from forty to fiity ?students each. Compare this success with the condition of these colleges in past j<-ars. Thirty years since oDly one cf them existed. At an earlier dale some three or four medical schools were : striving for the supremacy, aad, as we havn beon informed, at one commcnoemmt eac^ graduated but three or four, and the validity of their diplomas was called into question. The instructors, also, who minister to the pupils in these institutions, are, without ex ception, men eminent in their calling ? mm who know, from a long, and, in many in stances, dea-ly bought experience, the accu racy and the value of the theories which they advance, and who can demonstrate the pro priety of the principles which they inculcate. Few of them possess a reputation confined to their own city, but most are widely known in Europe as well as America, and their perfec tions in theoretical and triumphs in practical medicine and surgery have won for them a name and fame as enduring as the science which they profess. Some of the most impor tant principles in the trealmem ol disease, and the most daring and successful feats iu surgiry, have bad their origin or resuscitation in the medical faculty of New York. But among the facilities wbich the metropo lis affords the student, there is none more im port ant than that of clinical instruction. Tile information which is to be obtained from ob strvations at the bedside ot the invalid is of more value in impressing the mind of tae student with the principles which he should be familiar than we ordinarily conceive. In tbis respect the aspirant to medical fame who pursues his studies in New York, enjoys more and greater advantages than the disciple in any other city in the couritry. The numerous public institutions which are maintained by the State arid the city are almost incessantly open to him, and exhibit a greater variety of diseases and injuries than can be foond elsewhere in the world, London and Paris hardly excepted. In the Emigrant Hospital on Ward's Island there annually treated anumlterof patients near ly e<jual to one-fourth the population of Bos ton : and in that institution, with those on Randall's aad Blackwell's Islands, the number of patients very nearly equals one-seventh of the entire population of Philadelphia. Aside from these immense establishments, thsre are several in the heart, almost, of the city of New York, where numerous individuals without means are received and cared for in the mo-t, . skilful and successful manner. In addition to the opportunities afforded for observation, the student in tbis city has almost unequalled facilities for gaining experience by engaging in practice. Probably not fewer than 1">0,000 invalids were under treatmeni aside from those admitted into the hoepitils, during the year 1853. One-third, at least, oi these, if not the total half, were indhidual* whose circumstances in life prohibited their employing a regular physician, and many o! tborn preferring to entrust themselves to a inau whose medical education was but partially completed, to drugging themselves with no-: trums and patent medicines, afforded student? the opportonity to bring their own ability avi ingenuity into action ? an advantage by no mtBLs to be despised. The various medical societies in this city, which there are several, afford the Btuflt an opportunity for intercourse with his elder* in the profession, wbich cannot fail to be o* eACteding value to him. The dissuasions which arc continually oeing carried on? for doctors do disagree ? arc alwajs developing new theories and eliminating new principles. The supposed inordinately expensive ra'c of living, and the greatly exaggerated Iemptt tiors to vice and dissipation ia New York, have always been bugbeara in the eye3 of anxious parents who hav*? sons to educate for : the medical profession. We do not hesitate to say that, with any decree of cconomy. how ever slight, a young man can live in New Yoi k for as little money (and live well, too.) as la any city In the Union. As to vice, it nnfortu natcly exists everywhere- in the little towns in back counties. as well as in the metropolis ? and the probability ia, that rather more of it can be found in a city of three-fourths of a i million of inhabitant? than ia a little hamlet ! where next door neighbors are miles distant from ea:h otb"r. Incredible as it may appear j to some of our readers, the entire bo jy o! the medical students oi New York s'istaia as cre ditable a reputation, at this day. as an cqnal j number of gentlemen from any profession or 1 calling that can be named. That New York is. beyond all dispute or | cavil, the seat of medical learning and pi j press in this country, needs no otht r df/noa slratiou than that afforded by a glancc at the facilities offered to the student, not only in : fbc points we hare alluded to, but in aU ' others which present the slightest inducement to an ambitious and deserving individual emu lous or distinction in his culling. In this de psirtment of science, as in all others, we claim for the chief city of tbe nation her proper '."" in tbe confidence that, while wc do so. we do not derogate from the Impoirt incc oi our sister cities. IIknrt A. Wise on tiik fh QtKsnov.? The present Governor of Old Virginia Is an i indefatigable officer. Nothing escapes his eagle eye, from a nigger's shin up to a cargo of oysters. In his recent mesfage he advocated the passing of a law to raise a revenue from ; the f.ysti'r beds of the Old Dominion by direct * tuiitioa ou tbv bi>?lvw, but uy member o( the Legislature could muster up courage enoag i to introduce a bill. Wise, however, wm not discouraged, and drafted the aot himself. We , give the result of his labors Id another part of this paper. Hlo lav prohibits any person l'roai taking oysters, fish or wild fowl from Virginia waters without a license which must ba paid for, and provides for the establishment of two revenue cutters to carry the law into effiot The absurdity of the proposition is apparent. Governor Wise has been in a stew for som^ time, but his last effort beats all. Re*d the act. Letter Carriers in oi*r Cities. ? There is but too much reason to fear that tte cities o i the Uuited States will never enjoy the advantage s ot that prompt and reliable deli very of letters which prevails throughout Eu rope. Tnere, the whole system of postal ar rangements is wholly distinct from politics and parly iDt<?r<st?. The good of tbe whole popu lation aDd the perfection of every braach of the postal service aio tbe only o ?jecta aimed at. Not so with ub. Our postmasters receive their appointments in payment lor purely party ner vues, which ei'her have been or are to be rtw dertd. The v oc of this system runs thiougu the entire administration of the Post Office De f ailment, tbroogh the contract system for car rying the mails, down to tte appointment of letter carriers in our cities. These lwt, a? tin y depend tor coatinuance in office on the local postmaster, must be not only of his color [ ot politics, but must be known by either their i past or capacity for future political service0. They arc, in fact, only so many running pollti ciuiis of the lower order. The question of probity and proved fidelity is necessarily a secondary consideration, perhaps lost aigb". of altogether. H*nce that general want of confidence which is felt by the en tire public in the system of corner strec'. box^s and letter carriers. Win re is the ledividual who, having an im portant letter to send off, confides it to the hazards of a corner bo*, and the doubtful and wholly unguarded fidelity of a Post Office letter carrier? All sensible persons, however remote they may reside from a Post Office, prefer to sacrifice time and money rathor than to expose their letters to the risks of a tardy delivery, or to loss by depositing them in corner boxes. Hence we see in this city, on the days previous to the sailing of European steamers, thousands of our foreign population from remote parts of the city, at the sacrifice of a whole day's tioi*.

crowding to the Poet Office, in Csdar street, ty send off their mi?sires of affection or of aid. to their relatives in the old countries, rather than (rust their letters to corner boxes. TaN want of confidence is justified by cxperienc- : it pervades the entire community, and w"i continue to do so until there is a radical ch iD^i* in the administration of the whole Post Office Department. Henco the necessity of continu Ing, enlarging and cheapening the old plan of boxes at_the Post Office, wbert' individuals cm have their letters deposited and ready lor d i livery when called for. Most if not all the hotels, however remote from the Post OlHse. prefer to incur the expense of sending for tb-> letters of their inmates to conlidlug them to carriers. Tbey also send off packages of let ters for the regular mails by trusty and know a fa* 41ic ri?;ue place, miliar tUaci Con fide them to United States city letter earner11 We have in thisunirersil want of confidence the explanation of the striking fict that there ore at least forty times as many city let ters distributed in London in proportion to itB population in New York, through the government Pobt Office. This want of a re liable city collcction and delivery is the ciU3e of an immense loss of time amount ing in money to millions per annum. Private postal enter prise* have attempted to turn this state ot things to advantage, and miny of them have succeeded to the extent of m iking the fortunes of those who uudertook them. Postin ist*- r Boyd and Postmaster Swartz Lave grown rico and arc us well known as Pos', ouster Fowler, and more generally relied on for the prompt. tude and fidelity of their collections and del ? vcrie?. The establishments of Boyd a Swartz exclude politics ? they endeavor i court the popular favor by the appointment of men to collect and carry letters who have giv n proofs of honesty, independent of party s ? vices. Their charges are double the expea.-o of the Uoitrd Slates city post, but notwith standing, they command the public coanJenc in a touch higher degree a'.d reap the bgael ? in large cash receipts. The only remedy for this shameful. oneron? and insecure condition of things in regard to the collection and distribution of city letters is to be found in the exclusion of politics from the Post Office and in the multiplication of its city branches so that every family that r quires it can have a box at the head office and a branch office within a reasonable distance.

The Broadway Railrcvd bill, Buoh as it is, was reported by 'he Cems.itt<e of ;te House this morning, without advancing Any opinion upon it. It was referred to ^'t>< Committee of tho W >n le, and is so low on the general order that It wilt scarcely be reached, unless by a npe:uil effort. It was expected that tbe select committee having tbe Honse Liquor bv 1 In charge wouid have reportel it this morning. All persons interested, pre or con, were on tiptoe, anticipating ? warm time npon it. Bat Mr, iiatteacn kept bis seat. What oan be tne matter ? Are the friends of the bill at let ^erheadty Tbe Maine law fan&tica are chuckling at tha near approach of the end ci tbe Be scion, and lustily praying that all bills upon the suvject(f temperance and lioense will be thrown over. By-thebye, what influence was b rough , to bear upon this eati.e Mr. Ma'tcton fcr violat'ng his p'edge in not calling for a committee to investigate charges of corr tion in high placet? lbe claims agatrst the State, on aoconnt of the man agement of the Sing Sing prison, are incalculable snd coming in thicker and fatter. A few days since a bill was passed appropriating a 'a-ge cum of money to the i'ietkili Batk, fur th* liquidation of l>oekwood protested paper. A similar claim was made by the Chatham Bank, and the Comniit'ee of Ways and Meins this morning re ported against the claim. They make a distinction be tween this and tbe Fi-hkill ease, on the ground that the Chatham Bank cid not establish the fact that the funds drawn by lock wool sere used in the purchase of supplies for the prison. Now that the reason is known why this claim is r/ Jeered, this bank will of coarse hive the ne cersary aflicav!tc and oral provf in season lor the next Lfgialatuie. As Bray Dickin^ >n says, a claim loses no thing by laying r>v6r a y<>ar or two. Th- Msg Sirg Bank holds near e even thousand dollars of the same kind o' vou hers. A mt joritj of a c immit tee ih'?

Everybody supposes tb?t by a of tbe Court of Appea's the titles to these lands w?e firmly established? but Mr. Xortbrup now rav s the titles were established * 1 between the white men, but cot bet reen tbe wMte and red men. Tbe very 0"?pi"el of the State ptands upon soil thus situ ated, and Mr. Parpen tar, of Dutchess, very justly pro ves if tbe Indians, or antl-ren'ers rather, under the 5iil proposed, sbaii be pe-mitte<i to go into court under bis bill, then tbe first suit shall be against the S'ste, to try the ti !e to the sotl npon wbich the pnblic buikirgs now eund.

Obituary. THE LATE COMMODORE CONKER, UNITED STATES NAVT. Commodore David Conmx, who died at Philadelphia on the 20th inst. , and who was one of the officers victimized by tbe Naval Retiring B ard, enUred the navy as midship man In 1809. He w?ut tutde a lieutenant in 1813, pro moted master com as and ant in 1825 and received hit com- * million as a captain in 1836. He was a higoly active, at. tentive, intelligent and efficient officer in all the various grades of his profession. The war with England occur ring in 1812, he was one of ths most conspicuous amongst bis grade tor promotion, and received his commission in # Jnly, 1813, as lieutonaat. After this, for hia meritorious nd distinguished services throughout the abave war, the commission of a master commandant was accorded to him. In this grade he servad with distinguished oompe tercy or til 1836, whea bo received his commission at' captain in the navy. In 1815, as a lieutenant, serving on bwrd tbe Hornet sloop-of-war, he displayed the greatest gallantry in the engagement with tbe British ship of war Penguin, la bis actian Lieutenant Conner was badly wounded, and he carried with him to bis grave the leaden certificate ? which he received for hia bri llant services throughout tbe combat. Commodore C >nner, in command of the Po'phin vessel cf war. in 1822. '23 and '24, wasunler the coirmand of Commodore Ctianes Stewart, in tbe Pacific. There he proved hiiuseif most efliclent sad active. H i correspondence wiiU the Commodore, with the several governments ana authorities, as well as with his fellow citizens engaged in the commerce and fliharies of the Pa cific, wan maiked hy great abl ity atid clearness of views. As a captain in comment of a vessel of war, or as com mander of a Fquadron, no exception could be taken to ^ any of his acts. Tbe last crowning effort which he made in the service of his country stands unrivalled in corn lined naval and mi i ary operations. He disembarked from tbe shius cf ear aid transports, the army of Gene ral Scott without serl mis casuaifty or accident, on a sand beach near to Vera Cruz rpen to the turbulent billows of tbe North Atlantic. Tne lanoing was unopposed by the Mexicans, so certain were they that, in that sur* tbe United States troops would fitd their graves. Gimgcoc ore Conner was raised in tbe we f tern part ol the Stats cf Pennsylvania, and, in accordance with the general sentiments of the peovle of that State, he waa 4 democratic in his sentiments and principles. He had a competent fortune, not, however, obtained in or through the cavy. There was no more patriotic or disinterested offl cer in the service of tbe ciuutry. being ready at all time* to lay down hts fortune or bis life to promote its interest*. Such was tbe man wbon the nati>n aa'igh'. en to honor, but whom the NaVAl Retiring Board thought fit to disgrace. Tbe Baltiaore Patriot of the 20th inst. says: ?
