N "W Y')RK HER ALU. Sew York, Friday, Ootober 10, l*M. MAP OF TEXAS, MEXIOO AND CALIFORNIA, SHOH/M THE bBEAT SOUTH PASS. The Weekly Herald will br published ai the usual hour to-morrow morning. It will be an interesting number, with an excellent Map of Texas, Mexico, Sic , pointing out the Great South Paaa through the 1 Rocky Mountains, as discovered by Capf. Fremont. In the present position ol our relations with Oregon j and Mexico, including California, this map will be of great value to our readers. Next News front fSurope. The monster steamer Great Britain is now in her ; thirteenth day, she having left Liverpool on the 27th ult. The first trip of this steamer was made in a lit- j tie less than fitteen days, and she now comes over with an improved propellor. Fremont's Exp,dltIons to Oregon and Cali fornia??tor k-Jobbing, versus the Progress flu- Republic. We have received irom Washington a second co py of the report of Captain Fremont's expeditions to the "fur west," and as we thanked the President of the United States for the first, we now thank the premier of the Cabinet for this one. Butasitis doubtful whether Mr Walker or Mr. Buchanan is the master-spirit of the Cabinet, we don't know very will to which of them to render our grateful ac knowledgeme-ta for the aecond copy. They may divide our thanks between them, according to their precedence in the Cabinet on the Oregon question. Our readers will readily believe that we fee 1 very happy in receiving these marks of distinguished fa- 1 vor from the great men in Washington, and suppose that the copies of this invaluable report have been sent to us for ihe purpose of enabling us to place be fore the country a full view of the remarkable and romantic expeditions conducted by Captain Fre mont. with all the engravings, executed in the best style of New York art, which we shall give, and have eiready commenced preparations for republish ing the m itenal portions of the interesting narrative and pur the illustrations into the hands of our en graver In t ict, nothing h is been published for many montiia that possesses half the interest of the simple narrative, by Captain Fremont, over the boundless region of the west down to the Pacific Ocean. ?Qey faay talk of the " Wandering Jews," of their I. Jgene Sue's and "Mysteries of Paris,"and Bul w-r's novels, but none of them possess the deep and a uding mterest of this report-a narration that car n s us back to the first exploration of this great con tinent, ar.d opens up prospects of future adventure civilization, wealth, and national greatness, which fill the imagination with the most dazzling scenery. I fit were in our power to issue an engraving with I the narrative, to-morrow, we have no doubt we could sell from fifty thousand to one hundred and ! fifty thousand copies throughout ths country imens? 19 "^merest now felt in j thing connected with the movements in progress towards Oregon and California, and * i those vast and fertile regions of the distant West , 8tron? and powerful is the swelling tide ol popular enthusiasm, in favor of extending the empire whole ori r UDd frCe ln3tlt?fc over the hole of these beautiful regions of the West, tha he stock-jobbing cirque*, who dread any disturbance of the foreign relations of the country, and are ready at any time to sell their birthright for a mess of Pottage begin to make strenuous efforts agaim. he onward movement of the democratic impulses of the masses. The Courier a,id Enquirer of yes er d*y, has a long and elaborate article, denouncing m the most unmeasured terms, the bold and popular declarations in Mr. Polk's inaugural address relative o our right to the Oregon territory,-representing mat region as " valueless,"? reiterating all the hack nied and ridiculous fanfaronade of the British jour nal.sts and reviewers, and w.tl, cool effrontery cha rac ter.zinir the clam,s of the United States as unjust and indefensible. The motives ol the Courier and iu (red prints are quite transparent. If any line of national policy be likely to interfere with the rates of omniianton, or the success of commercial and stock jobbing speculations, such journals as the Courier representing not the people-not the impulses and rf.1Tw rlg o^fh*Republic?but petty clique. of stock-jobbers and speculators, at once start up in and w,,h ludicrously affected patriotism, point ou, the awful dangers to which its adoption would ex lose the republic. Once for all, the Amencan people must and will have the whole of Oregon and California. The Bri ush government have not a particle of right to an inch of ground on this continent. Every foot of the continent is ours by prescriptive right, and the whole countryis watching with the most ntense anxiety fcrih, of Mr Polk, l0 M XJhTr ' evince aQy weakness or pusillanimity on this rubject, or whether he is determined m adher^o ain'for ?mHn,yHand na,ional policy. It is utterly am for any influence to contend successfully against the onward impulses of the United .States a fT'T1? IT r011 baCk Up?n ilB80Urce the re S5 fl0f?od Mi-i-ippi, as interpose America Wwuve impulses of democratic Humuu(3s or the Day.? Whilst reading explora tions of the lar west, conduct-d by competent men, and with proper motives, we have also to t|puce that sundry imitators are attempting to travel in the same direction, but in such a ridiculous way, as to create laughter instead of respect. We allude par 'icularly to several circulars issued by a iierson ot ?t is name of "A. Whitney," relative to a railroad which he proposes to carry from Illinois to the Rocky fountains, on condition of receiving the trifling grant of the right of way for fifty miles in breadth throughout the entire route The whole attempt ol this Whitney and his associates is a perfect farce # md will end as such. It never can be accomplished. The only practical project will be that undertaken by the government itself, when the population of Ore gon and California will warrant the enterprize. City Taxes.?In a short time the tax-bill of the eity, lor the current year, will be prepared and acted on by the present Corporation. We are very curious to know whether the present party in power is going lo increase or diminish the taxes as levied upon the inhabitants by the party that were thrust out of pow er last year, it will be recollected that the "natives" went into power under a pledge of reducing the taxes, and this pledge was carried out by increasing th in beyond the amount ever imposed by any other party. The consequence was, that they were driven from the Corporation, and the present party placed in power, on the reform principle. Ih-1 us see what 1 hey are going to do in the matter of city taxation. Muni ment op Bronze to Jackson.?This great project,started by a tew politicians at Washington, is slued of in several of the papers with a great dea of enthusiasm, which is,we are very much disposed 'o believe, nflected. We have seeu too many at tempts to erect statues to great men who are dead .md gone,turn out inilures. In the present case many of the politicians and speculators in bronze, talk like angels, of the facility with which money can be col lected, and the statue erected. But if they could extract the brass from their own countenances it would be the readiest process by which th ? material lor the proposed work could be obtained. All these movements ate intended solely to humbug the peo pie. ___ Conni ctiol't Aoainst Rum.?It is stated by Phi lo-opher Oreeley tliHt Connecticut is three-fourths gainst rum. It may be so, but there is a great deal ?< very particular spirit manufactured in Coimecti iTHt, ami we rather suppose that Connecticut is just .1' favorable to rum, particularly New England pm, as New York is. MAoniftti?V Boo*.?The argument belore the Vim Chancellor, on the injunction against tuesaie of Mackenzie's book has been postponed till Mon day next In the meantime, the publishers and ven ders are restrained from appropriating the receipts now on hand, probably amounting to several thou sand* of dollars, until the question is settled, the book is now less the subject of conversation than it was after its ap,trance; but more accurate opinions are entertained of the motives of its publication.and the history of the whole aflair. About eight months >ulo we understand from the best authority Mackenzie had an interview with Henry Ogden, Esq lormerly an officer in the custom-house. Mackenzie told Mr. Ogden that there were a number ot very curious private papers of Mr. Hoyt lying in an ex posed condition in the Custom House, and request ed Mr. i >gden to inform Mr. Hoyt of the circum stance, which that gentleman did accordingly. Mr. Hoyt, however, remarked that the papers could not be ot any value, and neglected to examine into the matter. Again Mackenzie saw Mr. Ogden, asked htm it he had communicated the fact to Mr. Hoyt, and on ascertaining that Mr. Hoyt did not think it necessary to pay any attention to the matter, he re quested that Mr. Hoyt should be again informed o the fact that his private papers were exposed to al the employ tee in that part of the Custom House. Mr. Ogden again mentioned it to Mr. Hoyt, but the latter wasetill incredulous and indifferent. It would appear from this that there has been great care ess neas on the part ofMr. Hoyt, and also that Macken zie, eight or nine months ago, had no intention, ap parently, of publishing the private lettera belonging to Mr. Hoyt, and was probably persuaded to that discreditable step by other parties, after that time. It is a singular affair, and all the facta are not yet out. __ Very Late from Hayti?The schr. Bridgewa ter, Capt. Alden, arrived yesterday morning trom Port au Piatt, whence she sailed on the 28th ult. We learn from Capt. Alden, that the inhabitants of Pott au P.att and Santiago, had purchased the American barque Albert, and gave her to the Domi nican govarnment. She was to be immediately armed ( with fourteen cannonades and two thirty-two's, on pivots. She was to proceed to St. Domingo City. The Bridgewater left at Port au Piatt five Domini can schooners of war. Before the B. sailed a battle had been fought be tween the Haytiens and Dominicans, in which the former were entirely defeated, with the loss of ar tillery, provisions, Arc. Produce was scarce; commercial transactions were without interruption. Another Philosophical Convention in the Field ?Philosopher Greeley, of the Fourierites, announces the important fact that the grand "indus trial Convention" is to meet next week?on the six teenth instant. This convention will be composed of as much originality in philosophy .religion, morals, decency, and common sense, as made up the recent "World's Convention." The only difference will be that Mr. Owen, the father of English socialism, will not be a member. Greeley will be the great apostle ot the assemblage?as lively, miscellaneous, and useful as the contents of the big sheet that Peter beheld let down from Heaven. Anti-Renters in the City.?The National lie formers, or Anti-Renters, in this city, have nomi nated a ticket for the ensuing election. This party originated in this metropolis a few years ago, but have never been able to create much influence. Their! agitators and lecturers have, however, suc ceeded so well in the country, that many of them are now on their way to the gallows and State prison, to seal the truth of their doctrines. We will see how many votes the anti-renters can mus ter in the city of New York. The "Native" Party.?This party is, it appears, sinking and waning, as the day of election ap , proaches. On fcrmer occasions, the Exprtu and Courier, the organs of the whigs, favored and flat tered the natives; but the tables are now turned, and i both these prints are down upon their ancient I friends. The Courier is particularly severe. It denounces the " native" movement as "wicked" and " foolish"?brands the leaders in it as "selfish demagogues"?and characterizes their efforts as ? ridiculous attempts at "impossibilities. The Courier may spare its jiowder. Nativism is dead as a herring. j Miss Dklcy.?This distinguished artist has left the hospitable mansion on Long Island, where she has been rusticating for the last few days, for Phila delphia, where she commences an engagement on Monday next The most intense anxiety to hear her exists amongst all the musical and fashionable circles of Philadelphia. Her health, we are happy to learn, has been completely established. On her return to this city, the splendid operas of lion Pas ,fuali aud the Bride of iMmmermoor will be produced i in fine style. A Political Idol.?The democratic papers seem to make a great deal of fuss about Colonel Young, who has received the nomination of some one of the Senatorial districts of this state. Colonel \ oung is a very respectable country gentleman?very obsti nate in his notions?very old lashioned?very queer ?very eccentric?but jiossesses nothing to consti tute him the god of any man's idolatry. In fact, he is a very ordinary mortal, and the fuss made about him reminds us very much of the kitten with the long tail. Religious Intelligence.?The first of a series of lectures on the distinctive tenets of the Catholic Church, and the leading doctrines of Christianity, will be delivered on the evening of Sunday next, at St. Peter's Church, by the very Rev. Dr. Power? the eloquent and popular vicar of this diocese. The subject is to be the "Bible." Dr. Power is a coun ? tryman and townsman of the late Bishop England, and like that eminent man, is universally esteemed in this community. TeMTLETON's MUSICAL ENTERTAINMENTS.?'The public await with a great deal of interest the com mencement of these entertainments. The first will be given at Palmo'son the 15th instant. Afpairs in Mexico.?The i>acket brig Peters burg, Captain Shapley, arrived yesterday from Vera Cruz, with advices to the 14th ult., no later than those received by the Princeton. Captain S., how ever, states that the war excitement seems to be all here ; there was none at Vera Cruz. The Empresario, at New U.leans, from Havana, brings intelligence from Yucatan to the 9th ult. The department was tranquil,and the assemblywas busily engaged in framing a tarifl The Governor of Tobasco had again prohibited the introduction of the product* of that department, into the province under his command The Siglo XIX of Meridu, complains that aCupt. Davis, of itie American barque Abola, while in sight of ii boat belonging to the hrigantine Emilio, which bad capsized during u squall with three men, refus ed! to assist the drowning sailors, and stond quiefly by observing their struggles for life. The sailors were ultimately saved by Captain Wilson, of the Br. schooner George, at great personal risk. This is the story as we find if, bnt we entertain strong doubts of its truth. American captains are noted for their humanity and courage, and are not the men to suffer even Mexican sailors to jierish without as sistance. A widow lady runned Merced Cardenus,aged 100, was buried on the 15th instant, at Havana.?iV. O. Htt, Urt. 1. A communication from the commandant of Isle Carmen, the Governor of Tobasco. hid again prohi bited the introduction of the produce of Yucatan. The commissioners from General liiclun, who were sent to treat with the authorities of Tobusco, Ind not been able to do any thing, as the stipulations could not be agreed to. Among the most orominent requests on the part of Tobasco, are the following:? That a heavy duty be put on the cacao of the coun try; that all duties should be taken off from inland commerce: that a free cultivation of tobacco be al lowed, and the import of the produce of Yucatan; that loreign flour be allowed to be introduced. 1 he$e stimulations were so at variance with those from the Isle Carmen, that the commissioners could not come to terms \ ocal Music ?An interesting article on this sub ( ject may be found in another column. V". *?r-: .y-v??t.?. tc: Nrw Yoft* PihOTs amj PiuJTAUt A?aii?.?'The Courier, with its usual strict regard tor propriety, has given what it designateo a statement oi facta in relation to the case of the ship Auburn, Capt. Bur rows, and the regular New York pilot boat Charlotte Ann. The truth is, that an individual named Calaghan, not Callanan,wbo was lor some months a seaman on board a United States surveying vessel, was on board, as one of the underwriter's pilots, and the | ship was spoken by the Charlotte Ann, ten miles ofl? not six, as he says in the Courier, and the services j ot a New York pilot were ottered and refused. The United States surveying schooner lying at anchor, { about two miles outside of the bar, being in sight, the underwriter's pilot was observed to steer for her, probably thinking that she was at anchor on the bar. The New York pilot knowing that the course the Auburn was steering would bring the ship to leeward ot the bar,as the wind was south-west,followed with the intention of saving her irotn the imminent dan ger ot the underwriter's pilot's mistake, and hailed her with the valuable information that the " buoy oi the bar" wai a mile and a halt to windward, and the underwriter's pilot, thus made aware of the danger, immediately altered his cours >. Fortunately for the safety of the ship, the wind hauled to the southward) and she was enabled to go clear It is true, that in the indignation of feeling, at seeing so many valuable lives, and so much property wantonly and ignorantly exposed, harah language was used by the New York pilots: and who will not justify them 1 The ship escaped on this occasion by the greatest good luck. Our New York pilots are ever at their posts, in all weather; and after years of education, and atter the hazard of health, life and property, they un justly tind themselves deprived, nay cheated ot the means of obtaining a livelihood, whilst the pub lic safety is endangered, by the monoply of the New York underwriter's, composed of unexperi enced men. Now, the underwriter's pilot, Calaghan, ~ "alh must not be mistaken for Owen Callanan, a well tried aud known New York pilot. He, however, does not presume to claim to be a pilot for more than dralts of sixteen feet; and, as the New Yotk pilots, on the occasion referred to. philanthrophically fol lowed the Auburn, continually sounding, it is a fact suscepuble of proof, that Cullaghan actually got her into only sixteen leet of water. To crowii all, it is also a tact, that a part owner of the Auburn was on board of the New York pilot boat, and he was filled with fear and trembling for his property, owing to of skill 1 the display ot the apparent want ot skill by the un derwriter s pilot. For the truth ot the foregoing, we can refer to Mr. King,from the office of John Taylor, Esq., who made the cruize for his health. But we have the following additional and astounding tacts in relation to the manner in which the insurers them selves are deceived, and the lives and property of the public wantonly trifled with in consequence of their ignorant attempts to control the pilotage system of our port. On the 2d instant, whilst the Charlotte Ann was on her station, two vessels were observed coming down trom the city, and as their course dis played gross ignorance on the part of those in charge, the captain of the Charlotte Anne told Mr. King, before referred to, that if these vessels did not alter their course, they would certainly be stranded The captain was a true prophet. Both did get ashore. The New York regular Pilot Boat?yes! the Char lotte Aun, ao much blamed for interference to save life and property, immediately proceeded to them to otter assistance It was ottered and refused. Like assistance was also ottered by die New York Pilot Boats Blossom and Phantom The names of the two vessels were the barque Edwards, bound to Charleston, and the ship Star Republic, bound to Texas. The barque remained on shore upwards of two hours; the ship Star .Republic three hours and u half. Neither of them had any pilot on board. But it appeared ihat Captain Buckley, of the Edward,had set himself up as one of the insurers' pilots, and he was to pilot himself and the ship; Captain Hendly having, at the wharf, refused to take a New York Pilot, was to follow his wake, as appeared after wards by the ships getting ashore, and, by his leav ing his own vessel, she having hove to for an iiour and a half after she got off, ana going to the ship, to get her ott likewise. Thus it appears that these underwriters are wil ling to allow the vessels they insure to become un seaworthy in point ol law and f-ct, by the absence of the master, to the great hazard of lite ; both ships were fally equipped with men; had on board loads of passengers; and such is the consequence of their pilotage favoritism ; and ii ihe wind and sea had increased, we should have had the journals of the country filled with "another lamentable accident," and all tor the laudable purpose of ruining the real and legitimate pilois of New York. What will be come of insurances on cargo if captains "deviate" as Capt. Buckley did 1 And this is not all as to the Cliarloite Ann's cruize, tor upon the same occasion the ship Patrick Henry was seen to go ashore, run ning ut least seven knots per hour. She had an un derwriter's pilot, one of their best men, on board The Lord favored her with an east wind, and a con sequent riseot tide, and thus she only remained on shore about five hours. But enough for the pre sent. Fair of the American Institute, at Nlblo's. The attendance has progressively increased every day at this place, and the tasteful manner in which the grounds are laid out, are really very creditable to those who have the management of them. The i scene in the evening is quite interesting. Here we | see a young couple lost in admiration, not of the ar i tides displayed, but of one another?they move qui etly off to some secluded corner, and there employ themselves, doubtless, in comparing notes of what they have seen. There we see a worthy couple, at ? tended by a numerous flock of children, who run ; about like beings possessed, and shout aloud at each ! new discovery they make. Again we may see a ! foreigner pushing alone,and lost in astonishment, at the " cunning workmanship" displayed by those pauvrc* tauvaget, the Americans. "Dear me," says ' a country belle, "what a beautiful looKing stove that is?would'nt it look well in our hall at home 1" "Oh my! what a fine soup," chirps out a little girl. "Come, move on there and let us nave a chance to see," says an eager Jerseyman. "Guess they can't i beat those cassimeres unywhere," says a down easier. " Oh iny!?John, what beautilul baby clothes 1" says a wile to her husband. "Do come and look at this case"?"What beautiful music"? "Get off of my toes"?"Well, the country is certain ly going ahead"?"What a beautiful girl that is play ing on the piano"?and many such other exclamn j turns are heard from the crowds that are every mi : note pushing along, hi the space ueur the fountain, a great quaulity of ploughs of all kinds are display ed, and many are the learned disquisitions heard from erudite ploughmen upon the merits and deme rits of each one. "This, you will see, is peculiarly fitted for subsoil," says one champion?"Ah, but this goes the whole ligure,"says another?and so on, to the end of the day. While we are writing aboui this fair, we have thought it not inapplicable to givi such lacts as bear iq?on the state of manufactures ol different articles in this city, and show whatamoum of capital is produced by them, and the number ol hands > inployed. We have blued our observations on the ground of the census of 1840. The census which lias been just concluded, and the results of which are not as yet known, will, doubtless, show an increase, proportionate to the increase of the city since that period. The value of hardware, cutlery, Jcc., amounted to #185,300? giving employment to 146 men. '1 he value of precious metals amounted to #889,400, employing 492 men. The value of hats, caps, bonnets, tec^ amounted to #1,169,446?giving employment to 1,361 |?rsons. Tne amount of soap manufactured, 6,44>3,700lbe.; candles, 2,003,400 lbs.; wax and sjierm do, 250,000 lbs ?giving employment to 229 men, capital invest ed, #277,000 *1 ne value of musical instruments manuf ictured ' amounted to #214,031?giving employment to 281 men. The valueol lurnituie manufactured, #916,676 ?giving employment to 1,319 men. 3,484 retail (fry good stores, groceries and olhei stores, with a capital of #14,609,995 The value of machinery m-uiulacuned amounted to #1,150,000?giving employment to 1,419 men. 173 manufactories of leather, saddleries, tec., va lue of products, #1,522,156. Three glass houses, and four glas -cutting esta blishments?giving employment to 83 men; manu factured products amounting to #123,671. American cheese from this .State, amount export ed in 1H43, 2,253,416; estimated in 1844, at 5,000,000. The Farmers' Convention met yesterday morn ing at the Lyceum, at 10^ A.M.. hut there was not any business transacted beyond the election of u Chairman,viz , Dr. Peter (dispell, of Ulster County, New York, and two Secretaries, Mr. Van Eps, ol New York, and Mr. J. Harrison, of New Haven. They slso appointed two Committees, one for the recommendation of officers to president the Con vention, and the other to arrange the order of the business of the Convention They meet again tin morning, at lb at the same place, when various business will be transacted. At hall past seven in the evening, there was h large and fashionable attendance at Dr. Dewey'r church, in llroadway, and quite an interesting ad dress was delivered by Mr. Meigs, on the improve ments in mechanical and agricultural affairs. The Hon. George Lunt, of Newburyport, Mass., was expected to have been there, to have delivered an oration; but in consequence of sicknesa he was un Hble to come on. The evening's exercises were en livened by several beautiful pieces of music, given by some gentlemen of the Sacred Muaic Society, with Mr. w. C. Hill presiding at the organ. They sung ? i.omf ciiem evening o er us," " FhII'i Lip lights arc now returniiw," and "My Father Whs a Farmer." During the day at the Garden, the bund of the North Carolina waa in attendance, and were great adjuncts to the general elfect We understand that on Monday night next, Hon. Ely Moore will deliver an address to the Institute, in the saloon at Niblo's. Theatricals. Park Theatre.?"Ws know uot how it Is, but so it is," that with ovary presentation of the Keau's, this houso is more densely crowded, end truly they are wor thy of it. A more accomplished, talented performance' on the whole, has not boon enacted this season, than that of Ust evening. The chamber scene where Juliet takes the Friar's draught, was one of the finest aver presented to the public. At the termination, many a handker chief was held to the ayes?all appeared to be lost in feeling and admiration?hut in a few moments the majority recovered their feeling and the greatest applause was responded. The whole per formance went off in like manner amid every symptom of approbation. The petite comedy oi the 11 Four Sis ters" succeded, in which Mrs. Skerrett showed herself more at homa than was generally expected. There i* nothing like giving room for talent and ability even with stars. The play of the " Stranger," by request, comes oil' this evening, and certain it is that the Kean's will be worthy of the call. Bowery Theatre.?Last avaning, the drama of Rook wood, u drama fillad with scenaa and incidents of the most intsnse interest, was performed at this popular place of amusement. Mr. Milaer performed the charac ter of Dick Turpin, aad managed his " bonny Bess" in fine style. After Rookwood, the " Idiot of the Shan non," a new drama, in whioh tha celebrated pantomlm lsts, Messrs. Coney and Blanchard, and their wonderful dogs, appeared,was performed. The evening commenc. ed with the new and laughable farce of the Railroad Station. To-night the Black Rangers is revived, toge ther with the Idiot of tho Shannon, and Raymond and Agnes. Castle Garden.?Last night, a capital burlesque o' Fra Diavolo, called Black Diabolo, was performed at Castle Garden. The original music is sung and adapted to such funny words, as to make one almost split his sides with laughter. This is the last week of the bur lesque company. To-night the same bill is presented. Niblo's.?"ChaDge Makes Change" was repeated last night. The house was tolerably attended. To-night the performances aft for the benefit of Mrs. Mo watt, and are Romeo and Juliet, and the farce of the Double Beddod Room, in which Mr. Placide appears. We hope that our young American star will have a benefit indeed this eve ning. Every thing, now-e-davs, it done by Convention, therefore let it be called tho " Mowatt Convention," and let all the delegates from the city of New York be punc tual in their attendance. Palmo's.?The Ethiopian Serenaders are attracting vary crowded houses indeed, the public being unwilling to loose the few remaining nights they are to perform.? Bat we are in hopes that they will manage to let us see more of them. Perhaps we may yet have that pleasure Oratorio op David.?This splendid Oratorio, the com position of that eminent musician, the Chevalier Neukomm, is to be periormed this evening at the Taber nacle, by the Sacred Music Society, to be assisted by Mr. Seguin, Mr. Fraser, Miss Northall, and Miss Wind' muller. The subject of this Oratorio has reference to some of the snblimest passages of holy writ, viz: the history of the youthful David.bis encounter with Goliah. and bis life with Saul, concluding with his crowning as King. The native majesty of the narrative in the inspir ed book is sufficient to strike any reader with awe, but wben clothed with the splendid music of Neukomm. sung by the voices of the great artists engaged for the occasion, and the chorusscs given by the two hundred performers of the Society, will make it one of the most splendid Oratorios ever given in this city. In addition to the artists we have already named, the following will also sing, viz: Messrs. Andrews, Dunning, Nasn and Bell. Mr. U. C. Hill is to be the Conductor, and Mr Edward Hodges the Organist. We anticipato a splendid treat. Thk Swiss Bell Ringers having completed their Eastern tour, will return to this city in a day or two to play a farewell engagement of three nights at the Ta bernacle, commencing on Monday next. In order to enable all the world to hear them for the last time, they have reduced the price of tickets to twenty-five cents They are now accompanied by Miss Caroline Hiffert.who was received with great favor in Boston, Lowell, New Bedford and Nantucket She is said to possess a splendid contralto voice, and to sing with great taste. Sucli an enteitainmcnt us is ottered bytheso exttaordinary artists, at so moderate a charge will,crowd the Tabernacle. Dan Marble is at Cincinnati. They are performing the melo drama of tho "Female Horse Thief," at Baltimore. Messrn. Knoop and Fosso are giving concerts on the violin at St. Louis. M. and M'me. Candlebeck are giving concerts at Co lumbus, Ohio. The Antonio Family are giving their display of attitu dinizing at the same jdace. At the National Theatre, New Orleans, Mr. Charles Webb and Mrs. Ewing, are taking the loading parts;they performed in the "Wife," lately. The Oratorio of Samson is to be performed next Sun day evening in Boston. Herr Alexander, the magician, is at Detroit. The Bell-Riugers succeeded well at Nantucket. There is some difficulty, apparently .between the Com mon Council of Bosten and the National Theatre.regard ing its license. Sporting Intelligence. Trotting over the Union Course, L I.?Yes terday there was a pretty good muster at this course to witness a match lor $200, mile heats, in 2130 lb. wagons, between S. Hoagland's gr. g. Bell Hanger, and S. Cross' ch. g. Empire. The following is the result:? S. Hoagland's Bell Hanger 3 1 1 S. Cross'Empire 13 3 Time?3:3, 3:7, 3:7. The two first heats were well contested. In the third heat Empire ran a considerable distance, his driver having lost the control of him, by which he came in first, but in consequence of his running, the heat was given to Bell Hanger. The purse for $200 between Aniericus, Duchess. Moscow, and Ripton, did not come off, but if the weather is at all favorable, it will come off to-day The interest taken in this a/fair is most rxciiing ? Only the three first are likely to start. The betting last evening at Jones' Hotel, Park Row, the grand rendezvous of all sporting characters, the field was the favorite?five to three on Amencus?seven to one aguinst Moscow?two to one Hgainst Dutchess against any other named animal.

Death or Sarah Dkc?m-Another a*m? ??b?n added to the long list ofhapless feraalas who have boon sacrificed to the brutal passions and unfaithfulness of those who should have boon their protec tors. la yesterday's U-ra'd we liculars ofau ante moruin examination of Sarah Uecaer from which the facta were elicited that shecame to this city a short time siuce with her cousin, \ irgil Knapp, who, under promis ol marriage, had seduced her He persuaded her to take a dose of oil of tanzy, for the pur pose of producing an abortion. Soon after taking it she was seised with convulsions, and remained in most hor rible pain until Wednesday evening, about ? o'clock, when her sufferings were ended by death. It is very fortunate that the depositions of the poor girl w*? taken, or as is often the case, "nobody would have been to blame." Her seducer is her own cousin, end a rude, slownish looking fellow, possessing oeither intellect or refinement of manner. Furious Driving?Last evening a groeer'a cart was driven along Broome street across Broadway at a most furious rate, endangering the lives oi many citizens.? Two gentlemen at one of the crossings in Broadway had a very narrow escape Not a policeman, of course, was within a mile of the place to apprehend the offender. Dangerous Nuisance.?The gratings of a cellar on Broadway, between Barclay street and Park place, have been open for two days past, the only covering being a huge stone, over which scores of passers-by have sturo oled, and came near breaking their legs. A Crash ?About half past eleven o'clock on Wed nesday forenoon, one of the horses belonging to stage No. 174, of Slocum, Reynolds k Co.'s Waverley Line, having by soine means got fiom tha stage, ran upon the walk and agaiaat the window of John Hill's hardware store! 897 Broadway, which caused considerable damage by shattering the window into a thousand fragments. Democratic Committee.-The democratic committee met et Tammany Hall last night, for the purpose ol making nominations for the Assembly, but made none.? Tbey meet again next Monday evening. Poo a Old Hoass.?A horse belonging to a cab stand ing opposite the Park, fell down und died yesterday morning. North Carolina.?Ths line of battle ship " North Carolina" left her anchorage, opposite Castle Garden, Nonh River, and was towed to her winter quarters, East River, opposite Brooklyn Heights, on Wednesday Alter noon about two o'clock, where she will probably remain during the winter months. Burnt District.?When completed this will he one of the handsomest portions of our city. In addition to the fine new buildings, Broad street is to be laised four feet,and a sewer constructed fromWall street to the East River. . . ., Culpable?On Wednesday evening a man was brought to the Station House of the Eighth Ward; he was very ,ick and it was thought necessary to semi for a Physi cian. The captain ol that district immediately proceed ed to the house of a physician, living in the vicinity of the Station House, and requested him to visit the sick man. He refused, giving as his reason that he would not go among such a set of swindlers and scoundrels. Had the poor iellow died, who would have been to blame Tiir. Tare Gates ?The graceless heavy iron gates that give entrauce to tho Park ought to be removed. They are continually getting out of order, and cause much useless trouble in openiug them. The entrances to Boston Common are the most convenient, and at the -ame time the most neat and beautiful of any thing oi the kind we have ever seen. At the entrance there are several tall granite pillars about two feet apart, attording ample room for passengers, and at the same tinie preventing horses, cows, and other animals ol the kind from entering. Something of the kind adopted here would add very much to the beauty of the Park. Wall Street Navigation.?It is in contemplation to build a bridge acrossNassau street,at the corner of Wall, for the convenience of foot passengers. We would re commend that it should be a draw bridge, so that ioreign vessels could come up Wall street unuor full sail, and mooring in custom house bay, discharge their cargo, greatly to the convenience ol the custom house Inspec tors. It is rumored that the floating theatre will be moored there in a few days. Gambling among Clerks.?There are two examine lions in progress now, before the Police, ol Clerks who nave been discovered to have embezzled the money ol their employers to large amounU, and squandered it in eamhling. One is the clerk of Messrs. Holtord, Bancker kCo of Wall street, and the other a clerk in a large dry goods bouse down town. The flrst has embezzled {,80 000, which has ail gone to gratify his inordinate lore of play. By false entries, bis drafts upon his employers' funds remained for a long timo undiscovered, but us his , fortune failed him, he commenced embezzling larger amounts, until it was impossible that his defalcation j should be any longer concealed. The other has lost but about $9000. The particulars of the investigation are not yet made public, but will be known in a few days. We have before warned merchants, bankers and others who employ clerks, to keep a sharp eye upon thorn. There is, probably, much more embezzling ol employ er's money than is generally known. How is it that young clerks, the sons of poor parents, who receive during the first few years of their clerkship but about enough to board and cloth them, manage to dress as they do, spend their evenings at theatres, balls, and fashion able drinking establishments, we cannot imagine, unless tbey draw upon their employers. They are allowed too i much latitude, and many of tliem are placed in situations | in which they could embezzle liundieds and thousands of their employer's monoy without his discovering it. We again say, merchants and hankers, keep an eye on yourjslerks. fv?Lic Stores.?The stores of U. L. Soran, in Broad street, adjoining the Public Stores, have been leased by the Government for a series of years. The stores now upon them are to be torn down and new ones erected, to join the Appraiser's stores. The new buildings are to be fire-proof. When they are completed, the Public Stores will occupy the wholo ground between Broad street and New street - about 100 leet in breadth on Broadstreot. and 160 leet deep. Great Steed.?The Long Island train from Boston ar rived on Wednesday afternoon at twenty minutes past three P. M., making the actual running time, from city to city, 7h. 36m. Harrington Guards?The Harrington Guards paired our office yesterday, on their return from a target firing excursion. Military?" Scottish Guard."?That fine military company, the " Scottish Guard," will parade to-day, ac companied by Dingle's "Washington Brass Baad," in its new and elegant uniform. World's Convention?Correction.?One of our re porters who attended the Convention, wishes to correct u slight error which he fell into in reporting the remarks made by an individual named Robertson, inserted in our paper of the 4th inst. This individual was represented to have aaid " that he had been knocked down and abused by his father." it should have been " after he left his lather's house he lived with n man who knocked him down and abused him in the manner stated " Thi? cor rection would have been made earlier, but our reporter did not aicertain, until last evening, in what respect it was that he had misrepresented the individual. More from Oregon ?From a letter of the Mar shal and High Sheriff ot Oregon?who has been there 115 years, received a few days since.dated 12di of April, written to his brother in this county?we make a few extracts Last year 1 raised 11500 bushels of wheat?this year I think I will have 3000 I have a large farm lying 8 miles from ship navigation, worth as much as half ihe county you live in.

As for our connection with the U 8 we ire almost independent of Uncle Sam. For some time past I have been emploved in taking the cen sus?the number of souls is 4000 Now, as respecting Oregon, I have explored the whole eountry, and 1 think it the finest upon earth t ?the soil is very good?the timber so tall ihnt Ijhave seen 18 rail cuts, eleven feet long, gotten out <>t a tree twenty inches through at the butt. The climate is fine too ; I have not seen any ice this win l--r, but we have had five months' rain without in termission; still our stock keeps fat without feeding them any. The grass here looks like your clovei fields in June. Come to Oregon, arid make your children rich and live happy yourself Should you move to the country, bring two or three hundred young heilers, as they are the best pro|>ertv in ihi. country. There is not half ihe trouble and d.ingc in coming here that you think?if you start tisll th? trouble is over.?/ndepcnr/cuce, Mo, Expositor, Sept. 20. Thf Mormon War?The steamboat La Clede irnved last night from Warsaw. Our correspondent writes us on Sunday,the28th, that "amilitary move ment appears to be on toot, under General Hardin, by order ot Governor Ford, Proclamation No 5, to 'hecontrary notwithstanding." The Quincy Kill Company arrived nt Warsaw r.n Sunday morning, 'hare to/'wait further orders." The Commissar) from General Hardin's command arrived at Warsaw on the same day, and reported that some four linn Ired troops were at Augusta, and would march t< Warsaw in a day or two. His object was to pro cure supplies for their subsistence. Whatever thf object ol this expedition (says the writer) the old citizens will feel a degree ot security which they have not felt lor some days oast."

CoprcR Minks of Mishochi.?Yesterdsv we saw lour wagons, direct trom the copper mines in frank in county, in this State, loaded with ore. 'Ihe se gregate of the loads was about six tons, and war orought here lor shipment to Italumore, to be smelt ed. The ore was in an unwashed state, just as it came from the mine, and from its quality and con dition, is sent forward to be teated, to furnish a cer tainty of the value ol the ore of which it fortius a part ?At thovii Rep, Oct. 1. Brooklyn City Intelligence. Omftuctun Sibewalxi.?From the weii known enor. gdtic character o( the Street Inspectors, who were *p pointed hjr the preeent Common Council, it wee hoped thet the ordinance* would be rigidly and fearl >*?ly en forced ageiuit all person* who dared to obstruct the pub lic sidewalks by market produce, or any other desoiip tion of merchandize. How far these reasonable expec tation* have been realized, is well Itnowu to every pe destrian, who is compelled to thread bis way through the boxes, baskets, piles of pumpkins, mounds of potatoes, and mountain* of cabbages, which intercept his progress in almost every direction. These nuisance* have now become so general, and one of so really vexatious a character, that a longer exercise of patience and for bearance will be culpable in the extreme. ? Fashionable Weobiro ?On Tuesday last, a great " flare up" took place among the " fashionables" of Brooklyn and New York, in consequence of the consummation oi a nuptial arrangement be tween a distinguished scion of the Brevooit family, and the lovely and accomplished daughter of Judge Leflerts, President oi the Long Island Bank. The interesting ceremony was attended by '? a host of friends," composed of many sons and daughters of the millionaires of the two cities, and it is not at all impro bable that some other equally excellent " matches" would result Irom this happy meeting. Sfoden Death.?Andrew Oakes, Esq., Coroner of Brooklyn, held an inquest yesterday morning upon the body of a lemale named Jane Maria Butherlaud, wife of James Sutherland, 88 years of age, lying dead at No **k Main street. The deceased had for several years been troubled with asthma, and for three weeks past her body presented the appearance of being afflicted with a highly luflamed scorbutic efl'ection. She dnl not, however, seek medical aid, although on Tuesday laat, she proposed go ing to the New York Hospital, from which puipose she w?a dissuaded by Mrs. Jane Scott, her cousin. She went to bod at an early hour on Wednesday night, and at six o'clock yesterday morning her husband awoke, and found hi* bed fellow a corpse. The jury returned a ver dict of " death by causes to them unknown." Lost Childbbh.?A stronger proof cannot ba furnished of the necessity of some receptacle being provided by the Common Council ot Brooklyn for lost children, than the fact that no less than eighty-four stray little one* ; have found a temporary shatter and a home at tho house oi the Coroner of Brooklyn, since the 'JOlh of June last. For the accommodations thus afforded, and the trouble < and inconvenience necessarily incurred, neither Mr. Oakes nor his lady have received any compensation, | and, what is still worse, not even an offlcial acknow ledgment of their great aervicea to the city from tho members of the body corporate. Truly, these represen i tative* of the people of Brooklyn are great economists, and their name* ought te be handed down to posterity 1 for the exercise of a prudence which not only fotbids | their being generous, but also divests them of the com i mon principles oi gratitude. I Polick Itims.?Since the opening of the Law Courta at the County Jail, business at the Poliee-oftlca has been "dull, stale, flat and unprofitable." Yesterday afternoon t a great number of Dutchmen were in attendance?some : as spectators and some as witnesses?in an assault and ; battery case between a "cow doctor" named Schiller and I another individual, agaist whom the learned Esculapian 1 had made complaint. In consequence of the absence of i Judge Cburcb, who wa* engagod in other business, the | trial of the cause was postponed until this day. Jehn Doherty was arrestad on a charge of committing a brutal assault upon a little boy about thirteen years of age. There was some dispute aboutathe price of some potatoes, aud defendant scattered them over the street, and then beat the boy unmercifully. He was found guilty, and lined ten dollars. An assault and battery complaint was heard, in whiok Mr. Charles Hurt, engraver, and a Mr. Danaut were par tial. Prior to auy adjudication baing made, the belli gerent gentlemen entered into a compromise, and. thus mutually satisfied, they left the oourt reom, after paying costs. Board or Supervisors.?At a meeting of this board, on Tuesday last, held at the County Jail, the accounts ot the loan oilicer were presented, and certified to be cor rect; and returns of the same were ordered to be trans mitted by the Cleik to the Comptroller of the State. The mottgages under the loan of 1792 weie reported as all cancelled, except one- for the sum of $1,600, which had been in existence since 1811. The bills of the several Marshals for taking the census ol Kings County, a* well as the accounts of various ma gistrates, police ofliceis, ike., for special services, were lefeired to a committee, with power to liquidate the same; The Jail Committeo was authorised to enter into a con tract with Mr. David Anderson for all the cut stone ne cessary for the completion ol the County Prison. A resolution was adopted requiring the Clerk of the Board to report at its next meeting, (which will take placo this day,) the legal powers possessed by the Board over the prisoners in the County Jail, with a view of ascertaining if tbey can he employed on the public roads and avenues. Boabd of F.ducatior.?The all engrossing subject of discussion among the members of this Board, at their meeting on Tuesday evening last, was in reference to the rival claims of two schuol book authors, each of whom claime 1 superiority ovei the other in their modes of teaching " the young idea how to shoot " A very angry and very unchristian-like warfare has long been carried on between these aspirants to erudite fame, through certain newspapers which were enlisted to fight their respective buttles; and the result of their desperate oontest is " one disconceriod, and none killed." Serious ly, if the book committee had discarded the productions of both these persons, and sought elsewhere lor such elf me lit a ry works as they deem requisite for the proper instruction of children, neither thoy nor their posterity would hove lost anything hy the experiment. Obnkkal Sksshirs.? Pumpkins, alias Thompson, alias Favr. mentioned in yesterday's Herald as being on trial on one of six o> seven indictments found against him for pssdng counterfeit money, (in company with a French Canadian, who fal-ely gave his name us George Sweet,) was convicted, tie was very zealously and eloquently defended by iVilliam Rockwell, Esq , one ol the most deservedly eminent members of tho bar of Kings c un ty; bur the evidenre against him was of so unequivocal ly positive a c.iaiuctnr, that the jury were coiisiiameJ to And him guilty. Prior to his an est, he was in the om idoj of a man named Kierly, keeper of a furniture sioru in West Broadway, who gave the prisoner au excellent character A Mr. Watts, one of trie "Star Police" of New York, also testified in favor of the accused. Tiir Ethiopian Skreraders ?We are requested to state that these popular vocalists and musicians will give concert* at the Brooklyn Lyceum, on the eveiungs of ne uiesd.ty aim i cur?aay next. Somvvhat AmiqcATBD.?A.very good-hearted, well meaning, and highly raipentable, but decidedly old fash ioned, gentleman, of Brooklyn, has taken the trouble to publish, as his solemn opinion, that the large and popu lous city of which he has long been an inhabitant, does not require any increase of watchmen, police officers, lamp lighters, or other additions to its safety and secu rity Home evil disposed persons have whispered it about that his singular views on this subject are nnt wholly of a disinterested character, but that his patriotic hostility to improvement arises from a fear of being as sessed therefor, from the fact of his complaining that the "loud calls" which have been made for reform, come from many who do not pay taxes. The venerable sage forgot, when he thus declaimed, that every mm in the community, however humble in station or poor in cir cumstances, contributes his quota to the public service, aud for the commou weal, as much as does the richest and proudest in the land, albeit that his name does not ostentatiously appear in a newspaper adveitisement as having lots confiscated for unpaid assessments. A Voung man, named Kraneis Carshor, of respectable family and connexions, indicted for passing counterfeit money, will be arraigned lor trial this day. He is at large on bail, and came hither from Boston, on Tuesday, for the purpose of meeting the accusation against him The case of Ira U. ,Vlunn, of Williamsburg, indicted for grand larceny, was called, but the defendant not ap pearing, his lecognizances were declared foileiled, and his surety, John I'argee, ordered to he prosecuted. The court was occupied the whole ef yesterday in the trial of Robeit Willis, forraeily a police officer and constable of the third Ward, on an indictment, charging him with committing an assaul and battery on tho 17th of May last, upon Fetor Stevenson, keeper of a toll gate on the Jamaica road. .The delendant attempted to pass the gate, of which the complainant had charge, without paying tho usual tax, and the present controver sy originated in such retusnl to " pony up." The jury found the accused guilty, aud senti nee was suspended until the 18th inst. tloMMnx Press.?The trial ot the causes between Messrs Shepard and Carpenter, commenced on Tues day evening last, will not be resumed until Saturday next, aud "d interim Judge Vundoibtll will not take up up any other civil business. Lectures on the the Hebrew Commonwealth, by Professor Wines. This gentlem in delivered hie second of tho course of lectures on this subject at Clinton Hull, last eve ning, to a very targe and respect ible audience. fn contrasting (he war laws and alt very of the ancient Gentiles, with those of the Hebrews, he took occasion to speak ot the barbarity ot Sesostris, ?vhocut off the hinds and feet of forty prisoners whom he took in war; of the indignities which Achillea and his soldicrn heaped upon the body of Hector, every one ol the tatter having thrown a ivclin at the (alien hero ; of Hector, saying to the he,-in if ill Andromache, that in the event of Troy ho ng token, she, the idol ol his heart, would be made c ipiive, and a drawer of water ; and ot the poisoned irrows ot the Greeks; and although we are im .iresoed with the moderation of the RomuiMn war, yet of that nation, even to the day ot Cffisur putting to death the magistrates of the conquered ities He then referred in an eloquent style to the constitution of Moses, which he said was assailed iy the enemies of revelation, on account of the se veiily of its war laws, which contained two princi* le*, the one that if a hostile city surrendered wtth nit resistance, its inhabitants were spared on their tecoming tributaries, and it the city resisted the males were pat to deutn, and its women ind children made captives, but that lifter* twards essential modifications w?*re in ide in those taws hy Moses. The Prolessor then raced the subject of slavery, which, he said, had its origin in the remotest antiquity, and de* cribed its operation under the Rom ins and Greeks, he Egyptians and Asiatics, and the efforts ol Moses 0 abolish it, and his success in disarming it of most its evils. He then showed the hand ol God in the lestriiotion of Babylon, and in tin* rescue of Moses rmn the Nile ; and (tainted hit character as a taw ?
