But the ca riosities?tbe wonders of earth, sea and air?have long since been removed, ami among the changes of this ever changing city, the site of Peale's Museum was almost for ra, or remembered only among tbe things that were, reached the age of thirty two years, a remarkable instance of longevity for a New York buikiing, and at last fell, not by human hands, but from Hs own infirmities. Those who bad waited tor its fall ax last grew as impa tient as the heirs of an old miser lor bis dissolution, and some predicted that H never would come down without ; some assistance from the pick and crowbar. Hie painter who was engaged in re coloring tbe front of the neighboring store, seemed to think that its fall was for off in the future, atul painted away at the posts, and rigns, and doors, utterly regardless ef the thirty two years' accumulation of dust, which was so soon to be shaken out of the walls, tbe Boors and. the nooks and cronies of the ancient edifice. About the hour of eleven, the south wall was seen to tremble, tbe whole buikiing shook from cellar to attic, and m a few moments the front and side walls fell in, leaving the rear wall and a portion of the Searings still standing, and one half of the roof projecting over the ruins. For two or three ?unulao the dust which arose concealed everything, and the crowd made a hasty retreat, giving it a wide berth. The sign, the poets and doors of the adjoimug house, upon which the painter had exhibited his skill, have all at once chang cd their color, and look as if they had just been exua voted from the mass of rubbish which now occupies the site ef Peak's Museum. Three or four policemen have ascended to tbe lop of tbe next building, and are engaged in pulling down tbe pert of tbe roof that yet remains. After much tugging, poking, and shoving, they at last succ< oil in de taching it from its fastenings, and away it goes, rolling over and over in its descent, till it strikes the ruins, when another cloud of dust is raised, and the crowd again retreats. The old budding is now rapidly deinolisUod, and in the course of a few months more, another and we hope, a better structure will arise upon its site. Tbe Slavs TrwJBc. UNITED STATES CIRCUIT COURT. More Judge Belts. char6b op rrmva out a slaver. Jrvu 16 The Cmled States vs Rudolph E. Las colas.? Tbe defendant is charged with fitting out the brig Horatio, within tbe port of New York, for the purpose of slave trading, in the year 1864, in violation of an act entitled "An act in addition to an act to prohibit the introduction, or importation, of slaves into any port or place within the jurisdiction of the United States, from and after the first of January, 1808," he. Tbe indictment charges that the accused, as factor, did equip, load and prepare the brig Horatio for the purpose of employing ber in tbe trade of procuring negroes, mulaltocs, and persons of color, from tbe continent of Africa to tbe island of Cuba, or some other foreign place, and transporting them to an other. for the purpose of disposing of them as slaves. Mr. Joachimssen. associated with the United States Dis trict Attorney, opened tbe case for the government. In the month of Nov ember, 1864. the brig left tins port, and en the follow.ng February the was found adrift at Key West, totally abandoned; on being seised she was found to have been fitted up for tbe slave trade, and tbe prose cutor expected to prove that she had been usod for that purpose on the coast of Africa, and then abandoned. The first witness called was Sidney P. Ingraham. Ttegis ter Clerk in the Custom House. (Produces ledgers.) This is the register oath and bond; Mr. lascalas signed them 11th October, 1864, tbe gentleman sitting there is the same person. Cross-examined by Mr. Gerrard (the bill of sale pro duced)?The register spoken of was issued on this biH of sale. Mr. Gerrard read the bill of sale from John Fairbanks, to Mr. lascalas. loth October, 1664; this was rocorded in the usual public manner, in the Custom House, on the 17th. Mr Gerrard then produced a bill of sale of the Ho ratio from Mr. lascallas to S. T. Van Vasquesc, dated 23d October. 1664. Witness continued?Tliat bill of sole was registered; Mr. Myers, a Custom House broker, or Mr. Vosquesc brought it to be registered; thinks they were both there; the register was delivered to Capta.n Magi.ire. who was made saii.ng master of tbe vessel after she was cleared. Edward Brown, examined by tbe District Attorney?I am a carpenter. Mr. Gerard said, in order to shorten the rase, be would oumit that ibis vessel, after ber voyage, did go to tbe coast of Africa and take in a cargo of slaves, and he would consent to have Brown's testimony rood. Th* District Attorney had not bis testimony in writing. Witness then continued?1 found tbe Horabo off Castle Garden: 1 was engaged by a shipping master on ftiii'luy morning: the vessel hod lumber and water ixt-ks on board: the mate was thin in command; sbe hod a crew of eight or ten; (.apt. Magu re was the master; 1 don't know the name of the place we went to. but it woe some where on the coast of Africa: a blue and white signal was hoisted up, and a chief came onboard; we afterwards took on hoard some 330 or 340 slaves; a British man-of war lay a short distance off. our vessel sailed to the coast of Cuba; some of the slaves died on the voyage, and we landed all that were left: T do not know how many died; after landing them we went to sea; our vessel was in a sinking condition, and we hailed another ship, winch took us en board, wc Lad rice, peas, beans and water on board. Henry Wehb deposed that he supplied the Horatio in this fiirt with 14,000 gallons of water. Jos. F Turner deposed that Mr Iascalos paid him for the water supplied to the Horatio in October, ls54; the the defendant asked Captain Martin if the bill for water was right, and be said it was. Mr. Las oa las then paid tbe bill. John B Phillips, deposed that he was employed on board, and Mr Lascalus paid him 860 by a check. Henry M Barnes furnished the Ho'rntio with water casks, which were paid for by a person in the defendant's olfee Wm S Martin deposed that be had interviews with Iascalos before the Horatio sailed: hod some conversa tion w th hint after that: he paid me 845; I received no instructions trem him as to the destination of the Horatio, except that a steamboat was to take ber to sea from tbe Battery. The District Attorney read a letter from Iascalas to tbe witness in reply to a message that the vessel was ready to haul out. Mr Gerrard opened the ease for the defence, and the case stands adjourned. CCITED FTATEP DISTRICT COURT. Before Judge Belts. THE PTPTOFED PLATE BRIO BRAMAN. Jt.NK 16 ?

The ball opens with the " Fashion Flakes'' for three year olds, mile heats, for which there are five nominations. The gentlemen engaged in this stake are the pr.ncipals in getting up the Fa-h.on Jockey Club, and it :s to their energy and devotion to the turf that the public are mainly 'indebted for the present pro mised sport, and for the strenuous effort to restore the falien fortunes of the Northern turf. Three cf the nomi nations in the stake are upon the gmund ard in excellent condition, ai.d each of the nags has its warm friends and admirers. We hope to record an exciting contest The second race, for the Club purse $650, two m.le beats, brings together Berry, the winner of the fastest two mile race ever run; Adelgisa, a Southern crack; Au gusta, well known to fame and Mr Clay's Balloon, the winner of the Association stakes at Lexington, Ky Four such " two milers"' have probably never met.

Tnese re mmom are always very pleasant and barathea, for though immense quantities of bier are drank, M la hut seldom a drunken man m seen. During all day yesterday not a single disorderly person was to be sees, and though the participants ware eauberantly joyous, these was no riotous disposition manifested, and the crowds of peitoo men who were present had nothing to do but imhthfi vast potations of bier. It is a question whether any ether na tionality could have had ho large a demonstration, hating se long, without at least one hundred persons hssanilng latex tested. The weather was charming, cool, sunny and exhila rating; jus I the day for a pleasant out-door celebration. The crowd was tremendous: throe steamboats and extra ears on the Second and Third Avenue Railroads nauM wot begin to adequately supply suffletent means of tratopor lation lor the Bombers who wished to partiiiipnh in the ' festival. ' }t was estimated that over thirty Ihsaasad per sons must have been present ip the gardens during the day. The scene was air animated one. The Turners, several ' German military companies and an engine company were ? n the ground, and their uniforms contrasted pleasantly with the gay attire of the pretty /reaWrns, who were get up in immense style for the occasion. On every side was to be sees groups of happy family par ties discussing the contents of mysterious baskets, and devouring with great unetieo sausages, herrings, lim burger cheese and other savory luxuries, mixed wKh copious draughts of the inevitable lager bier. The grassy banks on the river side, which run sloping to tb<Water's edge, were covered with Just such groups, who ate, laughed, .-ang, flirted, or lay gazing at the flashing water beneath them, which was covered with gay boats and dashing little pleasure yachts. In another part of the field the Turners were amusing their friends with gymnastic exercises, in many of which they fhiled; but then a failure was vastly more funny than a success, and the discom fited gymnast was put in a good humor by the laughter and braves of the crowd. Scattered through the Held were military bands discoursing music, which sounded very well at a distance?the further off the better?and a number of enterprising young Dutchmen endeavored to dance the polka and schollish with their maJeAtm in the thick gra;s?a performance that had more of work than pleasure in it, but then was just as highly relisbod by the parties engaged in it. But the fiat lire of the whole affair was the lager bier, ? which was omnipresent. It was rye bread and lager I bier, cheese and lager bier, sausages and lager bier, dancing and lager bier, flirting and lager bier, music and lager bier, walking and lager bier, talking and lager bier; inside the garden was lager bier, outside in tbe rood was lager bier: lager bier in barrels, kegs, cups and glasses; old and young drank it, and children sipped it, until everything in the celebration and about it was intimately associated with this fascinating beverage. At noon tbe procession entered the grounds, beaded by the grand Marshall, Captain Diehl, assisted by officer Semlcr. Among the companies present, were the follow ing ? lAfayette Rifles, Captain Simmon, 2d Regiment. Compuuy B. Captain Diehl, 4th Regiment Hoboken Rifles. German Hussars, Captain Hieft, 3d Regiment.

Wh<n the lasscngcrs discovered the miraculous es cape which tl.ey had made, and the imminent dan ger that threatened them. Uiey were enraged at the lnibec.lc and careless management of the road, and the wicked carelessness cf this reckless flagman. He is still retained in the service of the com pany. and allowed to jeopardize the lives of thousands passing over that bridge daily. The individual holding a position of this nature. aDd guilty of such gross?almost willul?neglect, not only de serves to be driven from a post he has disgraced, but should he driven from the community which he htt so basely betrayed by his Doglcct.

Court of General Session*. Before Judge Capron. PRESENTMENT OF THE GRAND JTRT?CONDITION OF ELDKIDGS PTHEET JAIL. Jrvx 16 ?At the opening of the Court this morning the Grand Jury came in and made the following presentment: To TT.T HoVORAFLF THK ClTT JVIK.lt ? The Grand inquest of the city and county of New York, for the June term of the Court of Sessions, respectfully beg leave to present: That in addition to the performance of the ordinary duties devolved upon them by the Court, they visited ,n a body, under the piolile guidance of Go vernor Tieman. the ruvcral charitable and municipal in stitutions on Biackwell's Island, and the nursery and school on Randall's Island, and found in every depart meet evidence of good order, thorough discipline and wise supervision. That they also visited the city prison and Eldridgo street jail, or debtor's prison. Of the Eldridge street jail and its management the Inquest hog leave to present their unlimited corn' .nation. In striking con trast with the liberal and enlightened provision for the other departments of the government, tins jail is a stain and reproach upon the city, and in defiance of the humane spirit of the age. The editice is wholly un.suited for a prison it stands in an unsuitable place, and is sur rounded and pient up by oilier buildings. A portion of the cells are constructed in the attic, they are narrow, dingy, filthy and without vcntiliation, and with a summer sun rh miig on the roof right over them, must be almost intolerable. The prisoners confined there?and the num ber averages about twenty five?seem Pi have no adequate provision lor their subsistence. The keeper's table, for which they are informed the bills arc paid by the cily, is accessible to such only of the prisoners as are able to pay for that privilege. The others are fed in their cells, with the coarsest food (and even this is purely voluntary, and not called for by any requirement upon the keeper.) in limited quantities. Altogether, the inmates of the jail are immeasurably worse oil than the convicts in the city prison or penitent,ary. A condition of things so shocking to human:ty. and so much in opposition to the spirit of modern legislation, that they feel it to be their duty to ex pose and denounce it. Respectfully submitted.

The packet ftxp Thornton, from Liverpool, arrived on Saturday bringing 760 Mormons, Ujie mo I ?f whom are hound for Bait LukB- The passjuflers were landed at Cbstlc harden, where they renEn until this morning, - when th?y Start p a body fo^jbuh. Among tbem are WO Swedes and Danes, and the Wtnainder are composed of English and Scotch, Uio larger portion being English. They come from all parte of England, from the extreme north to the tslfe of Jersey, and consist of farmers, me chanics and laborers. Among the mechanics are wearers, carpenters, best and shoe makers, joiners, miners, pot ters, Ac. The Swedes are mostly farmers, with a few blacksmiths. Our reporter, who visited Castle Garden yesterday, was told by one of the Elders who came out with them, that they wore mostly old con verts, of ten or fifteen years standing, and wore brought out at the expense of the Mormon Emigration fend. A good many, however, be stated, came out on their own expense, feme of them intend stopping here, but the majority are going direct to Utah. They are mostly families, and appear to belong to the better class of emigrants. There seemed to be a preponderance of females among them; so, indeed, there ougbt to be, to sustain tbe system of polygamy which prevails at Bait hake. IX Brigham Young should he in want ef some fresh wives, we can premise him at least a desen from this party whom be will not find it bad to take. The num ber ? of children, too, Is very large, there being nearly one hundred under six years of age. Those were three births on board tbe vessel during the voyage. The party id accompanied by several priests and elders, who are returning front their foreign mission. The chief of them is Elder James G.Willey, who has s|i nt the last three or four years in tag Laud collect ug this Dork together, and who now returns to conduct them to the promised land. Tbe captain of the Thornton speaks very highly of Mr. Wiliey's management of the saints during tbe voyage. Be divided the ship into seven wards, and appointed as elder ever each ward to attend to the temporal and spiritual wants of the brethren, and sec that they did tbeir praying and got their rations at regmar hours. The lower deck was divided into three wards?the first ward being occupied by the Swedes and haaes, tbe second ward by Uie Scotch, and the third by Uio single men of all nations. Tbe ?p per deck consisted of four wards, and was oc cupied by English families. Under this arrangement everything went on like clockwork, and the passengers were kept clean, orderly and pious. The only accident thai happened was the throe births aforesaid, and this the elders state resulted from causes above and beyond their control. Among tbe passengers was a Mrs. Jervts, from Here fordshire. England, who, it appears, left ber husband at borne, and taking her two children with her, embarked in company with the saints for the promised land. The husband, however, took the steamer and arrived here ?bead of her. Yesterday be entered a complaint before one of our court*. and a writ of habeas corpus was iwued to bring up the children, and investigate the merits ?the t*Chir reporter was informed by several of the saints who knew Jervis in the old country that be was utterly unfit to have the guardianship of his children: that he treated his wife in the most brutal manner, and that tteWM the cause of her having bim, Ac., Ac., all or which be re cefved with seme grains of allowance, although the saints averred their willingness to swear to the same in court. Political Gossip. Tbe Philadelphia Monk American of the 18tb instant, says : The adjourned meeting to elect the duplicate dele gates to the Republican National Convention, which took place on Saturday evening, at the Wetherhill House, re sulted in the election of persons who are said to be pledged Fillmore men, some of whom announced them selves as such before being chosen. One of the parties engaged in the movement accidentally informed an oppo ncnt of Mr. Fillmore of the purpose of the affair. He said that it was intended to break up the Republican Con vention. It is anticipated that persons of the same stripe will poet themselves in tbe galleries to effect the same end, hut a police force has been ctgagod to prevent it. Mr Favid A F ma 1 Icy, chairman of tbe democratic national committee, is preparing an official copy of the proceed ings of tbe late Cincinnati Convention, which will soon be published. The Democratic National Committee, who have held half a dozen sessions in Washington, have selected from among their number, as an executive committee, the fol lowing gentlemen, viz:?Messrs. Ward, of Pennsylvania, Vallandingbam, or Ohio, Cottman, of Pennsylvania, Pot ter, of Rhode bland, Manning, of South Carolina, Clark, of Virginia, and Smalley, of Vermont, ? officio. At a meeting of this executive committee, Mr. Ward was cho sen to be its chairman, and Mr. Vallandingbam its secre tary. Mr Smalley has been elected the permanent chair man of the National Committee, and Messrs. J. H. George, ef New Hampshire, Julius Hesse, of Alabama, and C. H. Vallandingbam, of Ohio, as permanent secretaries. Hen. Lot. M. Morrill, of Augusta, Me., has renounced his connection with the democratic party, having written :o the State Committee, of which be is a member, his re pudiation of the platform adopted at Cincinnati. The headquarters of the Massachusetts delegation to the Philadelphia Republican 'National Convention is at the Girard House. The Mississippi papers are showing up one of their members of Congress, Hon. H. S. Bcnnct, in a style rthat makes him took, and no doubt will make him feci, very foolish. That gentleman lately delivered a speech in Con gross, which was nearly a literal transcript of one deli vered seme years ago in tbe same body, by that gifted orator, S. S. ITcutiss. Tl.e Northern .Kansas Aid Societies will bold a Conven tion at Cleveland, Ohio, on the 20th inst. The Fa'em (Ohio) Republican nominates Casrius M. Clay for the Presidency, subject to the decision of tbe Philadelphia Republican Convention. Under the head of "Important News'' the St. Louis Dtmccrai (Benton) publishes the following:? We call attention to the very important news received bv telegraph this morning of the probable withdrawal or Mr. Fillmore'm favor of a Northern conservative candi date. if such a one shall be nominated at Philadelphia. TtPs taken in connection with the movement of Mr. Crit tenden in the Senate, demanded the Bending of General Scott to Kansas to suppress and prevent the maraudings that have lately disgraced that Territory, and co.luted also w th the fierce onslaught of the Nkw York Hkrald urrti the ultra secession spirit which has so nearly impe riled the whole country?these things, we say. if correctly telegraphed, threaten to change very materially the aspect of the approaching political canvass for the Presidency. The Cincinnati Enquirer describes an enthusiastic ratifi cation meeting at Newport, Ky. Major Ilenry Clay Harvie opened the meeting with one of Lis telling addresses. He was follow ed by Col. George B. Hodge, the same gentle man who, as the whig candidate, ran ColODel Stanton so closely in the Congressional canvass?the canvass before the last. Col. Hodge, with many other old whigs, joined the Know Nothings, and discovering the unrepublican character of that Order, was among the first in Kentucky to denounce ami repudiate it, and has ever since opposed its principles and designs with great vigor [and earnest ness. In his speech on Saturday, which was received by the Colonel's neighbors with great applause and joyful ness, he declared bis unconditional adherence to the de mocratic party?platform, principles, candidates and all? and his belief that the old line whigs of Kentucky?those who were raithful to the memory and principles of the great man or Ashland?would find that, in its present po sition, the democracy was the only part of tbe constitu tion and the Union. The nomination of Buchanan fell coldly upon most of the South Carolina democratic journals. The Yorkvillc gnquirer acquiesscs in tbe nomination, but expresses dis appointment and regret, and says that of all the promi nent aspirants, Buchanan was the least acceptable. There is sigri.ficance about the following sentence quoted from an article it the gnquirer.?"The contest will be 'deter, mined between black republicanism on the one hand, and on the other the democratic party with Buchanan as its standard boarer. In such an emergency the South can have to choice." financial and commercial. MONEY MARKET. Moxdav, June 16?6 P M The stock market has not at all improved since Satur day. Tbe feeling is one of doubt and despondency. Tbe most serious apprehensions arc entertained, and the public mind is particularly'scnsitive. Tbe steamers, now nearly due from Europe! are looked for with tbe most iDtcnse anxiety It will be some days yet before advices are re ceived of tbe effect In England of Crampton's dismissal, and in the meantime the imagination will have full acoi* for operation. It is our impression that the whole affair baa been discounted; that tbe public mind is prepared for tbe worst; that the suspense is much worse than the reality, and that the actual |facts will, when known, have 'an effect fust contrary to that generally anticipated.

The line of discounts Is steadily enlarging, while the iDcrcaso ol specie is at a very rapid rate. The deposits are larger r.ew than they have been before this year, and the entire movement*! on a sralc in proportion to the wants and expectations of the community. With such an enormous specie basis, an expansion could not well be prevented. Tbe increase in loans must be for the purposes of stock speculation, arid not for legitimate mercantile operations.
