The doings of the Democratic National Conven tion ni&y be briefly summed up. The platform, as published in yesterday's Herald, with the excep. lion of the supplementary resolution relating to the construction of a Pacific Railroad, was adopted with great uninimity The minority report of the Credential Committee, admitting the New York hards and softs to the Convention in equal proportions of each faction, was adopt ed. Doth parties endorsed the platform, and agreed to snpport the nominees; and both were pronounced fully np to the orthodox standard of the democratic faith. The New "York delegates having taken their seats, the naming of candidates for the Presidential nomination commenced. Bu chanan. Pierce, Douglas and Cass were severally nominated, and the voting proceeded to the four teenth ballot, when an adjournment was carried. Mr. Buchanan led throughout the contest. The de tails of the voting are given in the reports of the proceedings of the Convention published on the first page. The Natio nal American Council closed its annual session in this city yesterday. There were but lew members pre-ent, and the business transacted was of little public interest. A protest was presented against the action of the Council in improperly ex eluding from a seat Mr. Bayard Clarke,of Albany? a duly elected delegate?because he would not un qualifiedly promise to support the Philadelphia no minations. Efforts were made to introduce resolu tions denouncing slavery agitation, and pledging the | party to a protective and internal improvement system, but they were successfully resisted. A vote of thanks was given to the Ne w.York press for its can did and accurate reports of the proceedings of the Council. The Council then went into secret session, after which?it was understood?it adjourned sine die. In our report in yesterday's Herald of the proceedings of the National American Council, it was erroneously stated that Mr. Sol. Smith's resolutions proposing change^ in the initiatory forms of mem bership were adopted. They were recommended by the Committee on Resolutions, but were laid on the table by the Council. By the arrival af the steamship Niagara we have three days later advices from Europe. The news whi. h thev bring is interesting. In reply to a mo tion of Lord Colchester in the British Parliament, calling for a vote of censure on the Plenipotentiaries at the I'aris Congress, for abandoning the principl? inherent in all belligerent Powers, of capturing ene mies' goods on board neutral ships, Lord Clarendon stated that it was impossible any longer to maintain that principle, and referred in terms of eulogy to Mr. Marcy's letter on the subject. Lord Derby de nounced severely the abandonment of this ancient privilege. He considered it favorable to the interests of France, hut tatal to those of Great Britain The ?ministry was sustained by a majority of 54. Notice had been given in the House of Commons by Lord John Russell of his intention to put a question to Lord Palmerston. as to whether the English govern ment proposed to interfere in the war between Costa Rica and Nicaragua. The London Timet revives Mr. Marcy's idea of a combination of England and the United States for the adjustment of Central American affairs. A postal convention has been pigned between Prussia and the United States. The protocol of the Danish proposition on the Sound dues has been published. We give Its leading fea tures in another column. Russia, Sweden aid the Duchy of Oldenburg have given their adhesion to the project, but Great Britain still refuses its assent. . Tb Italian question continues to engross the atten- j tion of European statesmen. It is the black speck ?which threatens the present tranquillity of the po litical horizon. The foreign news received yesterday by the Nia- : gara was more favorable for cotton than dea eis bad Ijeen led to expect. Holders became firmer; j tbe Sales embraced about 2.200 bales, about 600 of which were in transitu, and the remainder on the Bpot. In some cases an advance of about Jc. was obtained. The flour market was much more ani mated with free sales, including parcels for export ; common brands dosed rather heavy, and good to extra qualities were quick at yesterday's prices. Common to prime Canadian wheat sold at fl 61 a fl 74- Milwaukie club at 11 36, ami white Southern at II 68. Owing to the advance in freights, corn -was easier, with sales of sound mixed at 50c. and of white and yellow Southern at 56c. Rye sold at 76c a 80c. for Northern. Pork was firmer, with aale's of mess at IIS a 118 12*. Sugars continued active, with sales of about 1,600 hhds., part in bond and part on speculation, closing at an advance o about c. per lb. Coffee was quiet. Freights were firmer with more offering; to Liverpool al*>ut -'SO,000 a 40,000 bushels of grain were engaged at 6jc. a 4\ jc. a 7c, iu bulk and bags, and 6,000 n 8,000 bbls. -A ur, chiefly at -*?

The aboriginal Afrii ann, he siys, enjoyed all the elements which cons'itute and raise up a free nation, and that a Christian republic reared on that *?l will show forth the perfection of hnman rule. Industrial encourage ment, financial economy, internal improvements, po pular education, and the observance of national good faith are to be fostered and enforced during Mr. Ben son's rule. The ex lYesidarit cautions the people against private bickering and sordid motives in their dealings with each other, and adjures them to raise their ideas to the standard of a lofty patriotism and wide spread philanthropy. Our correspondent at Rio Janeiro, writing on the 20th of April .gives a very interesting account of the efforts now making there in order to supply the want of laborers produced in the empire by the abo lition of the slave trade in the year 1S50. Previous to that time, fitly thousand slaves performed the field work, and the price of produce was kept at a pretty steady standard. Since the traffic ceased the native colored population have died off'at a ratio of about fifteen per cent, and the coat of si ives has go neap nearly two hundred per eat. As the pro priety at home and consumers in all parts of the world are ufife ted, the very elifli alt questiou of where an ample supply of hands is t > come from arises. Some thousands of Chinese coolies have been imported. They can endure the climate well enough, but the peopie are prejudiced against them, and demand from government apian for the encou ragement of European immigration. We translate from the Rio Journal of Commerce the arguments on both sides, from which it will be seeu that the writer thinks that all Europe may be invoked in vain, w itb the exception of a portion of Germany, before a stoc k equal in numbers to that which China can supply, will be found so that if the Celestials are not encouraged coflle will soon become a costly beverage. There was no business transacted in either house of Congress yeste: day. A special meeting of the Soft Shell General Com mittee was held at Tammany Hall last evening; bat a quorum not being present, the members, after con gratulating each other upon the success of their delegation at Cincinnati, adjourned to meet again this evening, at eight o'clock. The National Land Industrial Congress continued its session yesterday. The proi eedings were spicy, as characteristic of the genius and spirit of the parties convened. The meeting announced to take place in the evening, in the Park, did not come off. from the not unfreqnent combination of two facts in cases of similar attempted meetings?a want of spe akers and auditors. The Chamber of Commerce met yesterday and approved of a report condemning the bill which is now before Congress, changing the revenue laws, on the ground that the effect would be injurious to the shipper, and would only benefit the Custom House officers. The merchants will make a strong effort to prevent the passage of the bill. In the Board of Councilmen, last evening, a reso lution appointing a committee to inquire into the management of the Finance Department, and the powers and duties of tne Comptroller, excited some discussion, and was finally referred to the Commit tee of the Whole. The report of the Committee on Streets, adverse to the widening and extension of Duane street, was adopted. | The Pmldrmial 6qo?bl)lc>The Lale Fill* moil Know \othlna; National Council, and tbt approathlni; George Law Know No thing convention. The National Council of the Know Nothings, convened in this city on Tuesday last, has closed its wonderful labors and adjourned, but not without having accomplished some admi rable and wonderful things. The most prominent of its acts, and the most sensible, although at the eleventh hour of the day. is the abolition of the dark lantern, the secret lodge, the triangular pieces of red and white paper, the mysteries, outside and inside doorkeeper, the password, ths eigns, grips, nods, winks, blinks and bard swearing whi:h have heretofore characterized the working machinery of the Order. All this foolish mummery and trumpery being thus done away with, the brothers of the Order can now go before the country and confront their oppo nents of all sorts, openly, like Americans, and in the face of aay. Mr. Wise in Virginia, some twelve months or so past, fought the test battle with "Sam" exclusively upon the bigotries, mummeries and mysteries of ihe Know Nothing organization: and it is rather surprising that the brethren, with the awful baetiog and impressive lesson which they then received, should have required a whole yea- to decide upon their true policy. As, however, it is never too late to do right, we ooDgratu late our Know Nothing friends and fellow Citi zens?no-slavery and pro slavery?upon this important step of their late National Council; and that thus, at length, their dark lantern is put out, their doors thrown open, and their sentinel, with his grips and counter signs. is dismissed, to go about his business. The next thing, in point of importance, de cided upon by this late Council, is that the Philadelphia Know Nothing ticket of Fillmore and Doneleon, and their political platform, shall stand. This platform, upon the slavery question, is submission to the laws of the land and hostility to all sectional agitation. It neither goes for carrying slavery into Kansas through the aid of bowie knives and "border ruffians." nor for making Kansas a free State by the restoration of the Missouri line; for If the first plan is revolutionary, the second is impracticable. This National Know Nothing Council, therefore, in splitting the difference, consents to a fair trial of the sublime doctrine of squatter sovereignty, a line of policy which, in these dart- and threatening timer, embodico the very essence of human wisdom, or we are very much mistaken. This Grand Council, which has thus grandly distinguished itself amidst all the party de moralizations of this degenerate age, number ed about one hundred and fifty members on the first day. gradually dwindling down to about forty on tbe third or last day of their momentous labors. The two lions among them, giving tone, character, pith and decision to iheir deliberations, were Hon. Ilumphrey Marshall of Kentucky, and lion. John Minor Botts. of Virginia. The former, as our Minis ter to China under Mr. Fillmore's administra ion, no doubt imbibed at Shanghae or Can on the grand idea of "America for the Ame icans."' from the fact that China has been re served exclusively for the Chinese for a good many thousand years. Mr. Botts, our readers will not forget, is th9 same Mr. Eotts_ who' once upon a time slept under the . ame blanket with Captain Tyler, and then pledged himself to "head hiui or die.-' But tb? antecedents of Mr. Bott?, in re ference to Mr. Fillmore do not appear to hav been quite so familiar or cordial, because Mr Botts. w:'h all bis apparent ad miration of iir. Fillmore, did rot swallow the Philadelphia ticket without a wry face or so. Vet. as h do*? swallow it rather gracefully, ft i? all right. The grand result is, that the moderate pro slavery ?icK"l of I I'lpore and Donehor cpn t nues to float in the breeze; and there is rea son, we Bay, to believe that it will head a for midable fight in the Southern States in No vember tin a ticket which stands as fairly and squarely upon the Kansas-Nebraska bill as the Cincinnati platform, and perhaps a little more so: while upon the foreign policy of our government Mr Fillmore, by all conservative, peace desiring Southern men, mast be regard ed us iutinitely safer than the Cincinnati lega tee of our filibustering Tierce administration. Let eur readers mark how se*bitive were the Virginians and other Southern men at Cincin nati? yesterday upon the red republican fo reign policy proposed as the democratic piat lorm by Mr. Hallett, of Massachusetts, the right nanu man of our belligerent President, and it will be seen how we may touch tne Southern poise upon that subject. But al though Mr. llallett may be set aside with his master, the nominee of the Cincinnati Conven tion will be the legatee of Mr. Pierce and his foreign policy, including Central America, Spain. Cuba and the Ostend Convention. In this view, thsn, we repeat that the conserva tive character, principles and platform of Mr. Fillmore will enable him, in these perilous timeB. to make a formidable light with theCiu cint&'i nominee in the South, and all over the South. Let us next turn to the North. In this sec tion the blunders and follies of Tierce aai Marcy have so seriously crippled and mangled the democratic party that if we count against it all the opposition elements now existing, we shall find it hopelesely down in many, and perhaps in a clear minority in every one ot the Northern States, without a solitary exception. With this fact before us, we attach no small degree of importance to the George Law anti slavery, anti-Popery, Know Nothing Nomina ting Convention which meets in this city on the 12th. of this month. We consider it a high ly important affair, tor the reason that this Convention may prove to be the Malakoff of the Presidential battle, and because George Law may yet shine in history as the General Bosquet of the grand asEault. Let ts explain. ThiB George Law Know Nothing Convention being of an anti-slavery stripe, wiL represent the bulk of the American party of Ihe North? a party without which the Seward crganizatiou will be reduced, we dare say, to tie pitiful di mensions of the free soil vote of 1852. Evi dently, then, this George Law gtthering will hold the key to the Philadelphia Nigger Wor shippers' Convention, acd it maj be used so as completely to block or lock the g?ne of Seward and bis managers. If the George Law party wish to retire into oblivion andjontempt, they have only to meet, debate and sdjourn without a nomination; but if their objejt Is to make a mark, and to exercise a controlling influence in this c ontest, they have only to make the anti-nigger driving, anti-Pierce nomination of a popular national man, with a moderate Northern accent, in order to reduce the Phila delphia Seward party to a capitulation; for they must fuse with the anti-slavery Know Nothings or consent to let the democratic nominee walk over the field?one or the other. Unquestionably, therefore, in this common eenee practical view of the matter, this George Law Convention holds the balance of power in this contest, in connection with the Northern Seward and the Southern Fillmore movements. Unquestionably, too, the eyes of all the calcu lating politicians and party gamblers of the country will be turned irom Cincinnati to witness the upBhot of this new "live oak" ex periment which is to come off on the 12tb. George Law will, in a word, at this Convention be able to say to the Philadelphia nigger worsbippers? "You must come down a peg or two, and take our ticket, or consent to be thoroughly smashed to pieces. We offer you a compromise between the nigger-driving Pierce party and Pierce policy on the one hand, and Seward and his nigger worshipping programme on the other?take your choice. ^ The most prominent candidates oi the nig ger worshippers are Governor Chase and Judge M'Lean of Ohio, Banks of Massachu setts, Fremont of South Carolina, and Seward of New York; but should the George Law Convention make a choice from this lot, or re pudiate them all, and nominate Stockton of New Jersey, Bell of Tennessee, Houston of Texas, or some new practical, popular go-ahead candidate, and make his acceptance an ultima tum, the Seward party must surrender at Thiladephia, for a prospect of victory, or con sent to be crushed out'" in the election. That s all. Si mmek Travel*?The stream of trans-atlan tic travel appears to have set in with uncom mon force. Several of our distinguished citi zens have sailed for Kurope; and the steamers generally have been full. Since the 1st of May no less than 2,470 persons have crossed the ocean in steamers from New York and Boston, as appears from the following list:? VtueU. Date. rauengrrs. From N. York?A rago lit y a 257 Alma .1 90 Friencon 10 78 North Star..., 10 154 I'araia 14 236 Hermann 17 303 Kdlnburg 17 241 Atlantic 24 176 Aula 28 170 Fulton 31 246 HarealoM .Tuna 3 153 From Bonton?Arabia Mar 7 126 America 21 119 Canada June 4 123 Total 2,470 We are glad to perceive that the Barcelone, the last French vessel that sailed, carried out a full complement of passengers. The line to which she belongs consists of four vessels, all fine steamers and fast. They will no doubt make the average passage to Havre in twelve days; and as they do not touch at Southamp ton they will enjoy an advantage over the American vessels plying to the same French port. At present, some of these French steamers are somewhat behind the American ships in point of acccommoda tion. Their purveyors do not seem to under stand the art of comfort as well as their rivals. TLeir cuitme is not what might be expected from French cooks; and their officers and ge neral management Me rather suited to a man of-war than a passenger steamer. On the first trip, it is understood that not a man on board but the passengers could speak English. Now, it is quite plain that the majority of the supporters of such a line as this will be Americans, speaking English, and filled with A^gio ?axon notioDF of comfort ; our French trie ads should therefore try to supply these de a UiG '. If they do?if they will feed,tbeir pas > i g<rs as Frenchmen can, and bed, arid treat them as 'he Southampton company does--the new Havre line will be certain to prove a pro fit <iale as well aa an honorable enterprise for j Is from oters, Hcfttsm CMng Buhnu4|. Rather more than a year has elapsed since the present Mayor of the city, Fernando Wood, commenced his official term with a pro mising sketch of the reforms he proposed to effect Be informed us?what we knew very well- that the tax bill was needle sly and shamefully swelling: that corruption pervaded every department oi the civic administration; that the police were wretchedly inefficient, and, consequently, that crime was rife and un punished; that the legislative branches of the Corporation were disgracefully negligent, while the executive departments were as dis gracefully reckless and incompetent; that the laws were not obeyed; that scenes of violence, frand and public indecency were every day occurrences; that gambling houses, lottery of fices and houses of ill fame nourished in defiance of law; that the chief thoroughfare was mono polized at night by abandoned characters?in fine, that the city had fallen a complete prey to anarchy and disorder. It will be my busi ness, said the Mayor, substantially, to correct each and all of these abuses. The whole of

the power vested in me shall be exerted to that end; and should I find that I cannot reach the evils I Intend to extirpate without exerting "doubtful powers,7' I shall not hesitate to use them, and to take the whole responsibility of my kcts upon myself, tor the public good. With such a flourish did the Mayor's admin istration begin. And there were not want ing persons who, when they saw how the action was suited to the word, how vigorously old abuses were assailed, how promptly new evils were checied, honestly prepared for a new era in our municipal history, under the auspices of Fernando Wood. Time haB proved that ol' all the fallacies that have deluded mankind of late years, this was the vainest and most preposterous. After more than a year's administration, the government of Mayor Wood may fairly compare, in point of inefficiency, carelessness, corruption and absurdity, with the worst of its predecessors. After all tbe newspaper pull's which glorified Mr. Wood's first efforts, they have one and all proved mere Hashes in the pan. Neither the gambling houses nor the lottery offices, nor the houses of ill-fame, have been suppressed. Broadway still belongs to the street walkers. Filth and dirt still clog the streets to au un exampled extent. The police are still incom petent to prevent and unable to punish crime. There is no diminution in the number of street brawls, or scandalous frauds on countrymen, or cases of housebreaking. There is no ap peal ance, even, of respect for municipal ordi dinances, which are openly violated day after day by rich and poor alike, without the least effort; being made to vindicate them. The taxes are glariDgly increasing; corruption as notoriously pervades the executive depart ments of the city government?in a word, the condition of the city, after seventeen months of the Wood regime, is as bad as ever it was, except in some particulars in which it is worse. And within the last half of this period we can call to mind no public act of the Mayor's save that he went to Richmond, Va, to deliver a politico-historical speech, and to show how little a first magistrate of this city knew about one of her foremost Revolu tionary heroes. That this should be the net result of repub lican government in a city inhabited by a prosperous, religious, orderly and intelligent population: that the fruits of free elections should be the installation of incompetence, corruption, negligence and every bad thing in places of honor and trust, cannot be discerned by liberal minds without deep regret. We are proud of our self-government. But how does that pride withstand a journey across the At lantic? If we go to Paris, we find the people whom we taunt with their submission to a mere military despotism and self-imposed autocracy, leading quiet, orderly, comfortaMe lives in the most beautiful and best governed city in the world. It is clean, it is safe ; the eye is not shocked by outrages against public decency : neither houses of ill-fame nor gambling bouses obtrude into the way to tempt youth; the laws are vigorously carried out; if a man is wronged he is sure of redress. Paris has im proved within the last two years at a rate far surpassing any American city: its strides towards comfort and beauty will almost surpass the belief of those are accustomed to estimate municipal pro gress by cis-atlantic examples. Or, cross to Lon don. There is a city ruled, as a stump orator would say, by a " pampered aristocracy and a bloated set of peers," with the Queen and the House of Lords at one end, and the Towe^ brimful of machines of despotism, on the othe'3 Yet look at London. Was there ever a cleane | better ordered, safer, more comfortable city to live in? Where is there so efficient a poli f force? Where is there less rowdyism or fewer Isolations of law? Go to Germany. Berlin and Vienna, under their military despotism f are both well governed, sale, convenient places to live in. The only city in Europe where corruptiorj and filth, and disorder hold as much sway as they do in New York, is the city of Rome, which is under an ecclesiastical government, with the Pope at its head. That is a badly governed city. They have bad laws there, which are badly executed. Gambling houses and worse places abound. Robberies are quite as frequent as they are here, and the police doeB as little to check them. The Corso is as filthy as Broadway, and the side streets are as full of unwholesome matter, poisonous effluvia, and debased creatures as the streets in the neighborhood of the Tombs. The parallel is uncommonly striking. And the inference i < that the government of Italian priests, pro fessing piety and religion, while they practice every vice, is the only one known whose moral calibre and worth are the same as those of the democratic government established in this city under the shade of our democratic in stitutions, and administered by politicians of the modern nigger parties, returned to office by corruption, perjury and rowdyism. Under the management of the present politi cal parties, all the departments of the city government have been mere sinks of personal and political corruption and profligacy, and have contributed in no appreciable measure to the administration of the real government of this great city. Vet as if their existing ineffi ciency and ocan<lal did not suffice, a new de partment is on the point of being organized, which may no doubt be appropriated to the same political of jects. Under the laws orga nizing the Ontral Park, authority will be con ferred on this nev department to spend a sum probably rot Ijss than six, ven or eight mil lions of dollars^ and to rmjd-yr frpgj fijEV;gj| hundred to two thousand men for several jears. What security have we that this vast amouDt of patronage, which is now in the hands of two men, will not be turned to ac count for political and personal objects, as that of every branch of the Corporation has been during the lost few years?

Ac. Bis duties, ot course, do not extend to the holding of any official communication with any United States government officer. With regard, therefore, to tne entry of British ships, where formerly the registers of such vessels were deposited at the Consulate, and certifi cates to such fact were given by the Consul for production at the Custom House, no such certificates can now be given; and the regis ters, in consequence, after a preliminary pre sentation at the Consulate, are subsequently deposited, until clearance, at the Custom House, as is the case with American vessels. It does not appear that much inconvenience will, therefore, accrue to the mercantile com munity in consequence of the vacancies cre ated by the withdrawal of the exequaturs. Whilst on this subject, it might be proper to inquire what is to be done with Mr. Rowecroft, Consul for Cincinnati, and Mr. Stanley, lately of the New York Consulate? Does Attorney General Cushing still intend to pursue these gentlemen with legal inflictions? More op Marcy's Diplomacy.?When the British government receive the despatoh an nouncing the recognition of Walker and the dismissal of C ?ampton, Mr. William L. Marcy may rely on being attended to in the Tims. The last news the British government had of him was that he was willing to combine with them tor the purpose of patting down Walker in Central America. The next will be that he has recognized Walker. What other impres sion can the British government form from this save that he is a double faced rogue, and that he wittingly duped them ? If they dismiss Dallas it will be in this persuasion.

It will be re collected that this officer fell upon the ice here last winter, and fractured his thigh. I telegraphed you last evening of the amount of the Ttxae debt which had been paid np to date. It is a sin gular fact that more than one half of the whole has ac cumulated in Philadelphia. This is attributed to the fact that the 1'nited.States Bank owned upwards of a million of dollars, and this may have given it a currency there which it had not elsewhere. Tte trustees of the bank have drawn $800,000, and still have a large amount? perhaps $400,000- suspended. Affairs In Sew Hampshire.

The Tiieatrbh, Want of apace obliges us to omit the courtesies usually extended to the respective places of amnsemeiit; however, as various benefits are an nounced for this evening, it is proper that they should he specially mentioned. Among them is that of Miss Oatley, who has thus far this week appeared at the Broadway theatre in tour of the most prominent and popular characters on the modern stage. She exhibits qualifications which, with proper experience, will give her ultimately a high position in the profession. She has been well supported by the regular stock company. Miss Kmma Harding has played with a good deal of sue cess the second range of characters, and created a desire on the part of the public to see more of her. All the old sterling plays which have so long been on the stage, lose none of their attraction when properly produced. The Broadway has all the facilities for bringing them out in good style, and it ts hopel they will present us more frequently with pieces which have almost been forgotten. The receipts at Wallack's, this evening, are to be set aside for the benefit of that old favorite and excsllent oo median, Mr. Geo. Holland. He has selected good pieces, and all frequenters of the house will unanimously seeond the assertion that they will be capitally rendered. The officers and doorkeepers are to have a benefit at Burton's, on which occasion the mansger and most of the leading members oi the company perform. Three popular plays are to be performed at the Bowery for the benefit of Mr. Lingham. Messrs. Perry, Glenn, Winans and other popular artists appear in some of their best characters. Mr. T. B. Johnston, an old favorite with everybody who can enjoy a good laugh, is to have a benefit at Laura Keene's to morrow. Pleasure seekers are referred to the amusement directory for particulars respecting the per formances at the different establishments to-night. Academy of Mrsic.?Madame Vietti Vertiprach, an old favorite with the New York public, takes a benefit at this house to-night. Madame La Grange and the princi pal artists of Maretzek's excellent troupe have generously tendered their on this occasion. The opera will be the "Troratore," followed by the first act of the ".Semlr amide," Madams Vertiprach appearing in the rults of Azucena and Arsace. This compliment tea de serving artist and most amiable woman, will, we trust, receive its full effect from the liberality of our opera going pablic?always excepting, of course, the stock holders, who never pay on these rccaslons. Birtom's Tiif-atks.?A new farce was produced at this theatre last night, under the taking title of "A Dose of Champagne." It seems to be a translation, rathsrthan an adaptation, from the French, the attempt at localiza tion being confined to a few hacknied jokes, of Yankee origin, which sound rather out of place in a French plot, interpolated with English conventionalities Thus| we hear of a couple of French villagers having " six hundred pounds" left them, ol an adventurous old ciuandicre "seeing the elephant," and other little lnconsistenetes, wbloh might have been avoided with a little more expe rience on the part of the author. Cosmopolitan as is tbe piece, however, in its affinities, it had a moderate share of success, owing to tbe excellent acting and singing of Mr B.C. Howard, who is a most valuable acquisition to this theatre. She Imparted to the principal character a vi vacily and an Interest which helped it wonderfully, and procured for its author (Mr. J. Moore, a member of the company,) the honor of a sail before the curtain. He made a short speech, saying that the piece was his first may in this line, and hoping, like nil aspirants, to do better for the future. We mm t cay of Mr. Moore, who is the Monsieur Tons* n of the establishment, that we hi.e his performance of French characters better than his French adaptation.
