NEW YORK' HERALD. \<w York, Wednciday, October 15, IMS, Malta for Kuropa. The Cambria, Capt Judkins, will leave Boston to-morrow for Liverpool, with, we hope, no negro notere on board. The letter baga will close in this city at halt past 4 o'clock this afternoon. We shall issue an Extra Herald at three o'clock, with the latest intelligence, in time lor her mail. Tiding! of tlie Steam Skip Great Britain? Her Appearance off Nantucket In Distress. We have heard from the Great Britain. She was seen oil" Nantucket Shoals early on Monday morning, tiring guns; and displaying signals of dis tress. Assistance started for her, but she did not wait for it; she hauled down her signals, put on steam, and run out to sea. This intelligence, which we received yesterday morning by Godfrey's Express, created a great ex citement in this city, and the steamer was anxious ly looked for all day. In the afternoon, the follow ing confirmation of the first news, came over the Long Island road. ; From Boston Exchange Book! Oct. 13, P. M.] We are informed by Benjamin Rich, Esq, who ar rived here this evening, from Nantucket, that the steam ship Great Britain was seen tbn morning about seven o'clock, heiweenthe shoals at Nantucket, witha signal of distress flying, and tiring guns She was within two miles of the shore,to the southward of Long Point Light, tier foremast had been carried away, and Irom her ma nceuvres it was evident that her commander was igi orant of her position. The steamer Massachusetta was imme tately got in readiness, and was proceediag towards the Great Britain, when the latter (about nine o'clock) hav ing, it is supposed, obtained a pilot lrcra Siascouset, hauled her colors down, and steered out from between the shoals, consequently no communication was had with her by the steamer Massachusetta. Capt. Rich says that she was at least sixty miles out of her course, and that she probably stood in during the dense fog of the night previous. As she would be compelled to steer outside ol the South Shoal, and consequently increase the distance to run, it is supposed that she will not reach New York before to-morrow afternoon. Mr. Prescott, who left Nantucket this morning, and saw the Great Britain, believes that she was on the bottom, from the fact that she lay nearly north and south, with her head to the southward, (the wind at the time being north west.) Twenty minutes after he saw her, she went about half a mile ahead, and then anchored, swinging round head to the wind?the wind still northwest. After get'ingja pilot, she weighed anchor, and went otf in good style. It hIic was not badly disabled,and could run out to sea in "good style,",she ought to have reached here yesterday afternoon. Owing to her non-arrival, there were a thoasand rumors afloat last evening re. lative to her, but it is unnecessary to report any of them. Mr. Spinage, pilot of the ship Mary Phillips, ar rived last night, reports that he saw the smoke of a steamer yesterday morning, off Block Island, sup posed to be the Great Britain. We shall probably hear of her early this morning. The Tariff.?There ia a great deal said in the newspapers and much speculation indulged in rela tion to the modification of the present tariff by next Congress. Every letter writer from Washington speculates on the probable opinions of the President, and also of the Secretary of the Treasury,and some times on the aggregate opinion of the whole Cabinet Mr. McUuffie, of South Carolina, has even come out with a long letter giving his opinion on the subject. There is one point, however,which seems to be cer tainly forgotten in all these speculations,and that is the very trivial importance of the President's opinion or the complexion ofthat entertained by the Cabinet. It seeins to be generally conceded that Mr. Polk is in favor of returning to the Compromise Act, or an ad valorem duty of twenty percent on all articles in" troduced. This would be a very serious altera tion, and a very important one in the present 'anff law. But we do not think that Con gress will sanction such a change, in fact, the modification of the present tariff, if it be effected at all bv the next Congress, will be entirely a matter of accident, and be quite uninfluenced by Mr. Polk's opinion or that of his cabinet. The controversy in Congress will be a conflict of various interests, northern, western and southern, besides a number of little interests connected with the manufacturers, mingling also with political movements. No one> not even the angel Gabriel, can tell the result be" forehand of a fight on that question in the House of Representatives. "The Poor"?"The Poor."?The philosophers of the Tribune are eternally harping on the misery, destitution, and terrible sufferings of the poor of this city, and throughout the country. There is no thing more ridiculous than all these tirades about this tancied distress. There need not exist such a class of people as the poor in this country. If any 1 one be in distress, or in poverty, it must arise from one of three causes?indolence, licentiousness, or j drunkenness. Sober, industrious and well disposed ' persons can always get a living, and a comfortable one, in this happy land. And as to the distress I of the working classes, both male and female, if any exist, it may be traced to their miscon- i duct?setting aside the ordinary misfortunes to which mankind are liable, and not at all to the state of society. Look, for instance, at one class? the female servants of all classes?chambermaids, cooks, seamstresses, and so on?they can all, if of good reputation and industrious habits, get from six to ten dollars a month wages, with the greatest ease possible. The whinings of the Tribune, about the ' poor, and the destitution of the masses, are utterly ridiculous and false. Impudence !?Thurlow Weed, our particular friend and fellow-sufferer, has the sublime impu dence to make an extract from the correspondence of the IVeic York Herald and to give credit therefor. He adds to this piece of impudence several very atrocious remarks,reflecting on the purity and inno cence and patriotism of Secretary Marcy, the author of the celebrated letter explanatory, exculpatory, apologetic, and illustrative of the immortal fifty cent antaloons atfair, in Mackenzie's book. Thurlow, with consummate impudence, has the audacity to insinuate, that if the correspondence of the present time of Secretary Marcy could be developed and published, as his pantaloons correspondence hast been, we would hear something as curious abou' copper mines, and manoeuvres relative to " permits' from the War Department. We are not sure but Thurlow is half right in his guesses. He is wrong, However, when he gives a slap at Prosper M. Wet more, who is one of the best of the lot, and who, as he was confirmed before the close of the last session of Congress, has now nothing to fear. Mackenzie Aoain?Mackenzie is out again wit! another long letter in relatioa to the publication oi the Hoyt correspondence, in which he attempts tc defend that act. Mackenzie may write his fingers off, but he never can satisfy the community that it was right and justifiable, under any circumstances,to publish private letters, picked up, or we may say al most stolen, from the Custom Houbc. He attempts to justify himself by exhibiting the venality and sel flshness and corruption of Van Buren and his jailiti ?al associates; but there was no more corruption and venality amongst Van Buren and his associates than amongst any other class of politicians belonging to any party in any country of the world. Even at this very moment,all parties in this State, now preparing for the election, are perpetrating the self-same decep ?ions on each other and the public which have beer recently disclosed to the world in connection wit! Van Buren and his associates. In these days everj public man is one-lourth for his country and three fourths for himself. Opinion or the Bey of Tunis on India Rubbef ?We give on the outside of to-day's paper a ver curious document, giving the opinion of the Bey o Tunis on the superior qualities of India Rubber ove every other article used to resist water, rub out pen cil marks, and strap down pants It is not only i curious document, but a brilliant one, and we ad vise all, who can, to read it attentively. Missionary Inteluoknce ?The Rev. Dr. Jud on, his lady, and three children, arrived at St. He leiivt, in the Sophia Walker, on the 27th of August Iri hi Calcutta. Capt Haste rhrook inlorms us tlm when he left,Mrs. Judson was lying dangerously ill pod no hopes of her recovery were entertained. Theatricals. Psax Thcatbk Thsrs *ui regular jsm last mala| at this houis?every part was filled almoit to sufloca tion. The performances were for the benefit of Mr. Keen. The very excellent performance of " Macbeth" alone, paid for the warmth end uncomfortableneM that was ex perienced by many, in consequence of the great attend ance. With every character in which the Keen's display their powers?they are, if possible, better appreciated than before. This was fully acknowledged last evening, by the repeated bursts of admiration sent forth at inter vals, by one of the largest and most respectable audi ences that ever assembled in that house. Amid a field of beauty there is a doubt existing in the mind which is the most delightful 80 it was las evening. There were so many liue passages given with such effect as to cause considerable doubt which,on after consideration,was the bejt. The opening scene of Act 4, was most effective, and went off with great eclat. The first scene of Acts, was one of the most thrilling representations we ever witnessed?alone worth all the uncomforableness, ex pense, Ac., that was experienced?but to many in the second tier, this was lost in consequence of the loud and merry converse and laughter of a certain class of lobby loungers near the doora?who,having no taste for genius or Shakspeare, enjoyed themselves in idle joke, to the great annoyance of several of a different taste in this part of the house, which only ceased when some one or two gentlemen called their attention to the fact. It was well that they did so?for there were other prepara tions being made to silence them. The closing scene drew forth the greatest applause?in this might be seen the genius, fire and spirit of an Edmund Keen?showing that the mantle of the sire had net fallen upon an unwor thy son. Loud, long and continued was the applause that followed the descent of the curtain, which was only stopped by the appearance of Mr. and Mrs. Kean, in the front, who acknowledged these strong symptoms of ap probation by making their obeisance to the audience, and withdrew. Loud cries were then *aised, " a speech, a speech-," and in a short time Mr. Kean came forward, and was received with renewed applause He said: " Ladies and Gentlemen?I am too much exhausted to address von as I could wish, bat permit me to say how thankful we are for your kindness, and for the continu ed success that has attended our visits to this cy. [Ap plause ] We are deeply flattered by the rivitted atten- ' tion with which you have honored our performances? such attention, combined with applause, will draw forth the talents of the humblest actor; [renewed applause;] and 1 have therefore only to add, that there is no audi ence in the world before whom 1 feel a greater pride in my profession, than that of New York." Long and continued applause, waving of haiglker ehiefs, kc. The gentleman then withdrew. The eve ning's performances concluded with' " Advice Gratis," which was well received. Oldbody, (Mr. Bass) showed himself perfectly at homo in this character. Bowery Theatre.?Lait eveuing the thrilling na tional drama of Putnam was again preiented to an over flowing house. There is nothing in the dramatic line that will attract such crowds in this city, as national pieces; and the manager has done well in reviving this splendid drama. The applause which was last night showered down, gave evidence that this drama has lost nothing by its having been so often repeated. After Putnam, the Forest of Bondy, a drama replete with thril ling incident and continued interest, was presented.? j In this Messrs. Coney and Blanchard, and their wonder- ; ful dog, appeared. The chaste and beautiful style of acting which these gentlemen possess, has made them popular wherever they have been, aud the dog has be come a periect lion. The evening closed with the laugh able farce of Scan Mag. To-night a great bill is present ed?Putnam, the Mountain Drover, and Wallace?in which Mr. Scott enacts the Scottish hero. Niklo's Garden.?The play of London Assurance went ofl in fine style last night. It has created as great a fu rore as it did when it was first produced at the Park, and well it might, with the splendid east which it now hag The funny larce of the Two Gregories was the after piece; and the immense audience retired quite satisfied with their evening's entertainments. To-night is set apart for the benefit of Mr. H. Placide, when London As' | surance will be repeated, as well as the farce ot the Dou. ble Bedded Room. Palmo's Opera House.?The Ethiopians, last night, concluded their performances, for a time, at least, in New York; they had a tremendous house, and were wor thy of it. To-morrow night they make their bow to the citizens of Brooklyn, at Gothic Hall, in Adams st. We commend them especially to the attentions ofourfriendsi the Brooklynites; they will find them worthy of all at tention, and may rest assured that such another band of | ! negro minstrels never have been, and probably never ' will be, seen. Ole Bull gives his last Concert but one in America on Thursday evening, when he will bring forward a new composition of his own entitled the "Memory of Wash ington." He will be assisted by the rising young vocal ist, Miss Northall.also Mr. Duffield, who will give a new Western song on the occasion. It will take place at The Swiss Bell Uinoers.?They give their last Con cert at the Tabernacle this evening, and in orddr to place it within the reach of every one, the price of ad mission has been lowered to twenty-five cents. They depart in a lew days for Mexico, after having made the tour of the entire Union, and being everywhere received with the greatest enthusiasm. In addition to their own attractions, another feature is added in the songs of Miss Hitfert, who made a most favorable impression the other evening. Those who have not heard the magic music of these modern Orpheuses, had better avail themselves of this the last chance, as much mey intervene e'er their return from Mexico, and it is somewhat doubtful whether we shall have another chance of healing them. Mr. Murdock has made much preparation for his re-ap pearance on the stage; he will, from all accounts, take a high stand among actors. They are determined to have a good winter season at Charleston, 8. C., and are waking up an excitement in lavor of the drama. Several communications appear in their papers on the subject. An extra train will leave New York for Newark this evening and give those from Newark who wish, an op portunity to attend the performance of Mr. Templeton. Miss Clifton concluded her engagement at Pittsburg on Monday last. The exhibition at the Philadelphia Bazaar was to con clude on Monday last. Templeton?His Musical Entertainment this vening.?The first of Mr. Templeton's musical entertainments will be given this evening at Palmo's Opera House. It will be seen from the programme, in another column, that the entertainment will pre sent a most agreeable variety, and promises a musi cal treat such as has never, (>erhap8, been offered on any one occasion in this city. Each of the favorite and popular songs will be introduced by remarks and anecdotes illustrative of their origin, author ship, popularity, and so on. Mr. Templeton stands acknowledged, by the press of Great Britain, as the greatest English tenor of the age. In the attentions, delicate and flattering, which he has always received throughout his emi nently successful career, from the members of his own profession, both in England and Paris, Mr. Templeton has received a tribute of admiration and esteem of which few artists can boast. As an elo cutionist, his powers are of the highest order. The greatest anxiety has been manifested on this side of the water to hear him, and there cannot be a doubt that his entertainments will be popular in the ex treme, not only in this city, but throughout the Uni ted States. There will be a great array of the fa shionable and musical circles of this city to greet him this evening. The Industrial Congress.?This important as semblage commenced its sessions yesterday, with the imposing number of about twenty master-spirits, all told, composed of tlie shreds and patches of the "World's Convention," with some slight infusion of Fourierite materials. But it seems to be the greatest farce tn the world to call it by such a high sounding name as an "Industrial Congress of the United States." In fact, the members seem to be aware of the laughable position which they occupy, and their first impulse was to close the doors against the public, for fear they should see their diminutive numbers, and laugh at them accordingly. We give in another column a report of their doings, or, ra. ther, of what they did not do. The " Industrial Congress" is fmerely the fag end?the exuviae?the vertebra?the fossil remains, as it were, of the World's Convention. New Boors for Mr. Clay.?We jiercetve that one of the bootmakers of this city has been making a new pair of boots for Mr. Clay of Ashland?not Cassius. All very well, but why should such boots be made of Russia leather!?had they not enough of 1 good Yankee stuff on hand to make them 1 And again, it this bootmaker is a master of his art, we trust that he will make a pair of boots possessing those mysterious qualities which were formerly ascribed to the seven-leagued boots of Jack the Ginnt-Killer, so th?t when Mr. Clay starts on an other presidential race,he may have some chance of winning the same He certainly needs a new pair of boots, and a seven-leagued pair, if he meuns to run that race again.

Mr. Kirkman, with his stable, consisting of Jeanneteau, Liatunah, and Marchioneas, has arrived here, and is now on Long island. Jeanneteau will probably be selected to compete with Fashion for the four mile purse over the Union Course. There is every prospect of fine sport at the fall meeting, even though "the big mare" and old Whitenose will not he on the ground. The Jersey sta bles are stronger than usual, and the different "cracks," we hear, are moving finely. Mr. Laird's string, with Fashion at the head, will be very formidable. Yachtiho.?Wa take the following from the Boston Pott.

Cedar Street.?As we have now an efficient police in operation, it i* hoped by those who frequent the Tost Office from belowCedar street,that some accommodation will be given them, as this street from Broadway to Pearl street is encumbered with empty boxes, so as to render it,impassable lor pedestrians, unless they take to the street and subject themselves to being covered with mud or run over by carts. We hone Justice Matsell will pay that thoroughfare a visit and remedy the evil com plained of. Whose Fault is it 7?Within a week past the mud in Nassau street has been twice scraped into piles and left to be plastered over the street again by the wheels of vehicles passing along. Whoever is in fault in this mat ter, ought to be seen to. Will Salfeter Explode ??The Board of Aldermen passed the following resolution at the close of their meet ing on Monday night:? Resolved, That it be referred to the Committee on Laws to report to the Common Council, at the earliest time practicable, an ordinance to prohibit the storing of saltpetre, or any explosive substance, within the city of New York, except under such restrictions as to the com mittee shall seem proper. This is now to be concurred in by the Assistants. Both Boards deserve a good deal of credit for the manner in which they have examined into the explosive nature of saltpetre. The book published by them is a very valu able one. Military Review.?The Sixth Brigade, commanded by Gen George P. Morris, paraded yesterday for annual inspection ana review. The different companies com posing the brigade, met at their different head quarters and marched to the Battery, where they were reviewed at 12 o'clock by Gen. Morris, and at 2 o'clock by Gen Sanford. The companies all appeared finely, and drilled to the satisfaction of all who witnessed them. The bri cade was composed of Col Yates' splendid regiment of flying artillery, Col. Warner's German regiment, 2d company ot Hussars, commanded by Lieut. CLarles, and the 13th regiment commanded by Col. Ming. The only companies belonging to this regiment, located in this city, are the Scottish Guard and Highland Guard, both of whom turned out in good numbers and looked very soldierlike. From the battery they marched to the Park, and after undergoing another review,were dismissed. Moikments of the City Fathers.?The city fathers spent the early part of the day yesterday at the plough ing match of tne American Institute at Harlem, and af terwards adjourned to White Plains, where they partook of a sumptuous dinner. An extra car was despatched at H o'clock which brought them safely back to tne city. Plouohinij Match at Harlem.?The great ploughing match ol the American Institute came oil' yesterday at Harlem, in the presence of a gieat crowd of people. The first three prizes were awarded to three members of the same family , and were all won with the Bergen plough, which, with a'draught of 300 lbs. did as much work as any other on the ground with a draught of 375 lbs Death ry Laudanum.?Tho Coroner was called yester day afternoon to hold an inquest at 29 Christopher street, on'the body of a child three weeks old, named Henrietta Heeler, whose death was occasioned by administering to it a quantity of laudanum in mistake for paregoric. Vor diet accordingly. Movement* of Travellers. The hotels yestorday evening were again nearly as full as at any period during the earlier part of the autumn.

He watched the progrese of annexa tion with an eagle eye, and in Congress or out of it. secret treaties with England and Mexico could find no 1 concealment, and met with no favor.

Owing to the recent rainr throughout the StHtP, the river and tributary streams have risen several feet above the ordinary level. The water is now on (|nay street. We also learn that the Mohawk is very high, and that some considerable damage has been done to the crops of some of the farmer*, by their lands being inundated with water.?-Albany Allot, Oct. IS. ' Fair at Hlblo'a Garden In connexion with the exhibition of watohes and chro nometer* that era belitg ihown at the Fair at Niblo'a, the queition ha* presented itaalf to u< as to what ii the state of the manufacture ef these articles in this country and to what extant it reaches. On making seme inquiries of one of our most extensive watchmakers, we find that the man ufacture of the movements of watches 'is carried on a very small scale indeed; in fact, there are no manufacto ries devoted exclusively to this business ; those move ments that are made in this country being merely casual ones,made to fulfil some passing order, but no steady sup ply is kept up. The importations of wstch movements from England are very large, and, in fact, the demand for the American market can be scarcely supplied, so great is it, and particularly since the China market (where, by the bye, it is the fashion for each man to wear two watches) has been thrown open to them, and where they send vast quantities, the manufacturing of which keeps all their hands busy. There are an immense number of Swiss and French watches also imported.? This class of watches is inferior in quality and accuraoy to the English ones, but they are generally made in a more flashy style than the English, and for that reason they are preferred by that class oi customers who wish a showy article without reierence to its time keeping capacity. They are to be had at all prices, between three dollars and a hundred dollars, though, since 183d, their price has depreciated very much. One would suppose, from the great use made of import ed movements, that we were unable to manufacture the article in this country, but such is by no means the reason. The manufacturing of the movements of watches is divided into a number of branches, amounting to as many as twenty-seven, and as many different hands are employed in getting one whole sett up. The pay of these mechanics in England is very small compared with what the same class would demsuia here, and inconsequence of the duty being almost nominal, (seven and a half per cent) it would be folly to endeavor to compete with them when we can get their articles at such a low price. The duty is necessarily low; under former tariffs they were much higher, and the consequence was that an immense number were smuggled in?their small bulk ottering great facilityfor such a course?thus neither the revenue uor the manufacturer were benefitted; but under the pre sent system, the revenue at least derives some advan tage. The fact that any repairs necessary, even to the replacing of parts of the works,'can be executed with precision by our watchmakers, shows if need were, we could manufacture the entire at tide. English patent lever watches vary in price according to their finish, from twenty to ooe hundred and fifty dollars, or even higher than that. But there is another branch of the business in which we have attained to some perfection, and this is the making of chronometers. Owing to the facili y with which the longitude may bo determined by the aid of accurately going watches, it is of great importance to have them ma le as perfect as possible. With a view to encourage the exertions of watchmakers, liberal premiums have been offered from time to time by the different European Governments. In the reign of Queen Anne, a reward ol ?-20,000 starling was offered to any one who should make a watch or other instrument capable of determining the longitude at sea with accuracy. This premium was gained in 1704 by the celebrated John Harrison, and other premiums of a smaller amount were given to Messrs. Mudge, Arnold, Earnshaw, ike ; and since 18'22 two prizes, one of ?300 and one of ?200, have been anuually given to the makers of two chronometers adjudged to be the best after a twelvemonth's trial at the Royal Observato ry at Greenwich, and consequently they have attained to much perfection in the art of making them. From this very slight sketch it will be seen how much pains has been taken to foster this branch in England, aud it must be a cause of congratulation to every one to know that in this country, where no such inducements are offered, and where the patronage of those who use chronometers (and which, after all, is the great test of their goodness) is the sole support; it must, we say, be congratulatory to know that we have succeeded in mak ing most accurate chronometers, and that the American made article is in extensive use among our sea captains, many of them trading to Liverpool?the head-quarters of all excellence in this line. With this slight notice ol watches and that kind of goods, we must content our selves to-day. There are some other articles in the Fair which we shall notice hereafter. The grand ploughing matcli came off yesterday at Harlem, which attracted a great number of people. The result of it will be found in aaothor column. Industrial Convention?First Day. The great Industrial Convention, which was called by the new light philosophers of the present age, to do what theWorld's Convention, on whose heels it nas so closoly followed, left undone, met yesterday at Croton Hall, brim full of zeal and hone for the regeneration of our poor mother earth, and her conversion into a blooming paradise. At 10 o'clock, when we entered the room, we found but four persons assembled, all of whom we had noticed as prominent members of the World's Conven tion. One of the members assembled,twheu we arrived, wished us to say,that this moment was meant to prepare the organization of a peaceful revolution, lor the purpose of securing the blessings promised by the Decla ration of Independence to each citizen, to change the present non-committal, selfish government, from a ne gative, cold, calculating umpire, to an affectionate pa rent of the people Toward eleven o'clock, the people began to assemble, but at eleven o'clock there was no organization effected. There were, then, about twenty persons present, the principal part of whom were gathered into a squad, dis cussing the tariff. At a quarter-past eleven, the meet ing was called to order by L. W. Ryckman, of Brook Farm. At this time there were twenty-four persons present. Mr. Arnold Buffum was appointed Chairman pro. tem., of the Convention, and Oeorge H. Evans as Secretary. Mr. Buffum remarked, that as he had nothing to do with getting up the Convention, he did not exactly un derstand its object, but supposed that it was for the pur pose of securing to the laboring classes the rights and privileges which are now denied them, There seems to be an agitation among all classes, parties and sects, which has tor its object the improvement in the condi tion of the producers of wealth. If 1 understand proper ly, the object of this Convention is certainly one of the highest importance. And 1 hope that our deliberations will be so conducted that we shall convince all observ ers that we deeply feel the importance of the object lor which we are here assembled. A Gentleman here asked who were the members of the Convention. Mr. Evans remarked that there were some members who were appointed at the last Convention, and the re mainder would be those who came under the call. A copy of the call was called for, and after some hunt ing in the pockets of the twenty-four, one was found by Mr. Bovay, and it was read by the Secretary. Mr. Ryckman moved that all who chose to present themselves as members.be received as such. This mo | tion was carried, and the following names were given . in :? j , Moses Johnson, Abraham Shariot, Egbert 8. Manning, \ H. Kriege, C. Meyer, Wyman B. Sawyer, John G. Pal i mar, Benjamin Sharp, James McCracken, Charles Mur | phy, Arnold Buffum, L. W. Ryckman, Albert Brisbane, George H. Evans, Thomas A. Devyr, Hezekiah Job, James Warren, Charles T. Hovey, Charles Sears, E. N. Kellog, E. P. Grant, J. P. Decker, Wm. Lamb, Wm. H Attree, Ira B. Davis, John Evans, Wm. S. Wait, Charles Douglas, L. Masquerier. Mr. RrcKMAN now moved that the sittings of the Con vention be private, and that reporters be excluded. Mr. Bovay proposed as an amendment that the Con vention sit with closed doors, but that gentlemen of the press be invited to remain. This amendment was received by Mr. Ryckman, and, after some discussion, the motion was laid on the tnblc. j Mr. Bovay moved that a committee of five be appoint i ed to decide upon the qualifications for membership.? I A committee was appointed consisting of Mr. Bovay, Mr. Brisbane, Mr. Devyr, Mr. Ryckman, and Mr. Evans. The chair suggested that the committee also be em i powered to nominate officers for the Convention. This motion was passed, and the Convention adjourned to meet at 3 o'clock. AFTERNOON SESSION. The Convention assembled at 3 o'clock, when the busi ( ness committee reported names of officers as follows Wm. S. Waitc, of Illinois, President. Charles Douglass, E. N. Kkllooo, John Farrkl, Vice Presidents. John H. Evans, Charles Sears, and Moses Johnson, Seoretaries. The committeo also reported as rules for the Conven tion, That the forenoon and afternoon meetings be pri vate with closed doors; and, That an evening meeting lie held, which shall be public. That Mr. Wm. H. Attree be the reporter for the Convention. That the rules of the Convention be the same as the rules of the House of Representatives. The appointment of Mr. Attree as reporter of the Con vention, seeming to convey the idea that others were to be excluded, one of the reporters asked if such were the intent of the committee 7 Mr Ryckman replied that it was. That Mr. Attree would make the report for the Convention, and that when the Convention adjourned his notes would be sub ject to their examination. Mr. Attree remarked that he hoped the Convention would not exclude other reporters. That he was there not as the reporter of the Convention, but for the Tribune, and that the same rule which excluded other reporters would also exclude him; that Mr. Greeley had sent him there, and to him he considered himself alone accountable. Ho hoped other reporters would not be excluded. This remonstrance of Mr. Atfee called up Mr. Evans in explanation. He stated that while the committee were in deliberation upon the rules for the government of the convention, Mr Greeley (who had uot been in the meeting before) met with them and sig nified his consent and wish that Mr. Attree might be the exclusive reporter of the Convention, and that when the reports were published slips would be sent from the Tri bune office to the other offices of the city. After some other discussion,the question was put to the Convention whether all reporters, excepting Mr. Attree, should be excluded, which was decided in the affirmative by a vote of five to three?the afternoon session of the Convention exhibiting ten members. Our reporter accordingly took bis hat and notee and made his exit as quick as possible, not wishing to remain longer in a Convention so email in every sense of the word. Thie is entirely a new movement in the annals of the city press. Heretofore when convention have sat with closed doors, all reporters of newspapers have been ex cluded, and if the convention chore a reporter it was one who would report exclusively for them, and not at the same time furnish a report for a paper. But it ap pears that our neighbor of the Tribune has commenced this new system hv desiring the convention to allow his reporter to sit with them to the exclusion of all others, and thereby establish e monopoly, of which the Tribune should have the exclusive benefit. But really it is a laughable matter to see an inaignificant number of men, met together gravely to discuss plans for the rogonern tion of the world, whose wild fantasies would never reach farther than the wails which were astonished by their uttcranco, were it uot that the press lent them their aid and circulated the result of their deliberation from dame to Louisiana, in every town and hamlet in the Country?it is really laughable to see them exclude from their deliberations those who alone can make them known to any extent. We are happy, however, to lie able to inform our read ers that they nave lost but little, very little, by this nar row-minded proceeding. So good-bye to the Industrial Congress. Political.?The democratic nominating com mittee Ht N'ewburgh, Orange county?the Second Senatorial district?have nominated Hon. Saxton Smith, of Putnam county. Brooklyn City Intelligence. No Police Heroin?No Citv Hall.?Highly import tat ?? the imseediate settlement of theee projects would undoubtedly be to the citizene of Brooklyn, end loud end frequent e* have been the demend* of the public for ioma definite end decided ection upon the numerous pe titions, plees and memorials, which here been sent to the Common Council, the "confrefated wisdom" of that learned and patriotic body has not yet been able to de rise any measures for the accomplishment of the greet ends so desirable to be attained ; and the probability now is, that nothing else will be done than to "talk, talk, talk," until the people appoint a new and mora efficient dynasty, in relation to the proposed City Hall, the delay has been chiefly occasioned by the conflicting claims of certain architects, builders and contractors, who are seeking to advance their own interests, regardless ol the odium which may be attached to the party now in power, or the persons who represent that party. Many months ago, Samuel K. Johnson, Esq., a member of the bar at Brooklyn, and who has no interests, either immediate or prospective, in the completion of this undertaking than auy other private individual, procured plans for the building, to be made at his own cost, and he expended a considerable amount of money in publishing and dissem inating the same. Several futile attempts have been made to improve upon these plans, and the whole subject remains in the same uncertain and unsettled state that it has been in for the past two or three years. In relation to the long hoped for police reform, this matter is also culpably permitted to take a long and quiet slumber. Pi blic Schools.?Samuel E. Johnson, Esq., having re signed his office as Superintendent of the Public Schools of Kings county, the Board of Supervisors, a few days since, proceeded to elect a gentleman to supply his place, and Mr. Woodworth, of New Utrecht, was chosen by an almost unanimous vote, the opposing candidate receiving only two votes. Although this appointment may be a very popular and judicious one, yet it comes with exceed ing bad grace from those who made it. to select one of their own body for the distinction. This is certainly car rying out, with a little too much strictness, the principle of taking care of " number one," and we much doubt whether the modesty of the act will be as much approved as its stringent policy. Military.?The City Guards, commanded by Captain Olney, and the fine company ol Brooklyn Kusileers, made quite an imposing parade yesterday, prior to join ing their regiment in New Vork, which was ordered out for review by Brigadier General Morris. Hons.?These eminently respectable and useful ani' muls, which have for many years enjoyed the uninter rupted freedom of the city of Brooklyn, are to be effectu ally restrained from their accustomed |>eregrinations on and after Saturday next?the Mayor and Common Coun cil having passed an ordinance, which will then go into operation, lor the immediate seizure of every bog found iu the public streets. If the municipal authorities will act with equal promptitude and determination for the suppression of the nuisances complained of in the vicinity of tho several distilleries in the city, they will render their constituents a service which cannot fail to meet general and hearty approbation. Police Items.?A man named Marshall was arrested at a late hour on Monday night for riotous and disorderly conduct in Water street, and for assaulting one of the city watchmen whilst endeavoring to arrest him. He was ordered to find bail in the sum ef $300 to answer the charge at the Sessions. A complaint was made before Justice Downing, last ovoning, by Miss Sarah Stoothof against Joshua Davis, her brother-in-law, whom she charged with having vio lently assaulted and beaten her, without cause or provo cation. The warrant was placed in the hands of officer Stewart, who ariested the accused, and he was held to bail. John Conly, whose arrest for disorderly conduct and assaulting a watchman was mentioned on Moaday, gave hail in the sum of $300 to take his trial at the next Court oi Oyer and Terminer. An Englishman, residing in Pearl street, was com plained of for bigamy. It appeared that about two years ago, he abandoned his wife and thirteen children, in the old country, and came hither with a young and buxom girl. whom it was alleged he married. The first wife recently arrived in this city, and found the guilty pair living together in snug and comfortable apartments, and apparently well contented with each other. She soon, however, made the quarters too hot for the invader of her conjugal rights, and took forcible possession of her truant lord, and the chattels, which be claimed as his. She had not, however, long resumed her reign as wife and mistress, ere she discovered her husband again false to her, and infrequent intercourse with her more juve nile and attractive rival. Indignant at thus being again deserted, she forthwith sought to punish the delinquents by having the male offender arrested on a charge of big amy. He and his deluded associate, however, both so lemnly protested that they had not been united by any legal lorais or ceremonies, and the proof being insuffi cient as to bis guilt, he was permitted to go, and the girl held in custody as a lewd, disorderly, and improper person. The various articles of dry goods, which were taken from the house of Mr. Rowland, a few days ago, by offi cers Reynolds and Kelt, on suspicion that they had been purloined by a little girl, residing in his family, have been returned to the place from whence they came, it having been satisfactorily shown that the goods were the rightful property of Mrs. Rowland and her daugh ters, against whom there is not the slightest foundation for any imputation of wrong, or the most trivial shadow of suspicion that they are otherwise than highly worthy and respectable persons. A Hint to the Police.?Circumstances have recently ly occurred in a respectable family in Brooklyn, which may lead to the apprehension of a married woman here tofore deemed wealthy and respectable, who, it is stated, has for a long time past been engaged in practices simi lar to those which have lately created so much excite mentin New York, counected with certain female physi cians. If there be any truth in the rumors which are current in relation to this matter, it is to be hoped the po lice will not permit any selfish or mercenery consideia tions to interlere with a proper discharge of their duties. Accident.?On Monday evening, as Mr. Jesse Hart was endeavoring to pilot his way through some of the bar riers and obstructions, which are to ne found on the side walks of several of the streets of Brooklyn, he accident ly struck his foot against one of these corporation snags, and fell with so much violence as to injure him severely. If he had not been unusually active, the consequences might have been very serious. TKMrcaANCE Mass Meeting.?A large and very enthu siastic temperance meeting took place at Hall's Buildings on Monday evening, at which seveial eloquent addresses were made?the Rnv. John Chambers, oi Philadelphia, and Or. Reese being the principal speakers. Target Excursions.?Kire Engine Company No. Id, dressed a la mihtairt, went to Klushiug yesterday on a target excursion. They presented a very fine appear ance. Company No. 8 proceeded to Newark on Monday, on a similar errand. There were two prizes?first, a $10 gold piece, won by proxy (James Clark) lor James Fer guson; and 19cond, a fire cap, by Oliver Strickland. Both companies were attended by the Brooklyn Brass Band. General Sessions.?BarneyfDotigherty, Robert Jack son, James Prier, and Thomas McOiuuis (impleaded with Richard Hughes, who was acquitted) were put on trial for a very aggravated assault and battery alleged to have been committed by them on Mr. John L. Brown, a scale maker, of New York. The outrage occurred at the White Lead Factory, where the defendants are engaged as workmen. They were very ably defended by N. F. Waring, Esq , and the evidence as to their identity being somewhat doubtful, the jury found them not guilty. The Ethiopian Srbenaders.?These truly excellent and popular vocalists and musicians will, to-night, give a concert at (Jethic Hall, in Brooklyn, which, we doubt not, will be attended by as many as can possibly crowd iuto the large room. Important ? Hk-arrested?We copied yester day a paragraph trom the Baltimore Patriot, giving an account of the robbery of a gentleman on his way to York, in this State, and of his following a female, wbom he suspected, back to Baltimore, her subsequent arrest, the finding of $1000 in a belt around her person, and her subsequent release for want of testimony against her.? We learn from the Baltimore Sun ol yesterday, that the woman was afterwards re-arrested and committed to jail under the name of Amelia Bwitzer, alias Kintz, to await a further hearing. In the meantime, the money she had has been taken care of by F. Pinckney, Esq, Deputy State's Attorney ; the trunks and other aiticles are in the possession of the High Constable. The description of th? lady and her partner, compared with the development through the National Police Gazette of New York, leave scarcely room to doubt that the couple referred to above is no other than the notorious " nipper" thief Albums alias " Alfred Morgan," who escaped only about ten or twelve days ago from BUckwell's Island, and his girl, a favorite, to whom he addressed two or three le'ters after his escape, from Hartford, Conn., and which being intei cepted, led to the hot pursuit down East, which ha driven him South. Alburtis figured pretty largely ii Charleston, about six months ago. where lie rotdied a gentleman at a hotel, of checks and drafts to the amoun of $38,000, and about 800 in money, the former nuvmg been afterwards returned. The woman is now in cu?to dy, though her companion is not yet caught. The Museum to he Sold.?Judge Sergeant, of the Supreme Court, yesterday, dismissed the motion to set aside the execution iss ted at Ihe instance of the trustee of the United States Bank, and under which the Bhenfi seized the collection of curiosities belonging to the Mu seum Company. There is now nothing in the way of k sale of the collection by the Sheriff', but we aie graiitiei to learn that an arrangement is in progress by which tin Museum will be retained in the city, although it wiii Change owners.?Philail. Chronicle, Oct. 14. Graham's Town, Aiiocst 7, 1845 ?The deter ruination of the Dutch Frontier fanners to hold i public meeting to consider the best means of seeking protection for their lives and property, is a decided proo of the present wretchedly insecure state of tu boi.iei and of the necessity of adopting, without delay, some r> gonitis and comprehensive measures to re-tiaiu the mi lauding incursions of the native tribes The murdei < a Dutch larmer by an armed party of Kafirs and the coi tinual inroads and aggressions of these people occasion ad a similar demonstration of feeling last year. Th> Governor hastened to the frontier and pledged his word to the inhabitants that he would protect them from vio lence and wrong. It is not necessary to refer to thi steps that were taken to reedeom this pledge. They were such as to revive the drooping spirits of the colo nists, and inspire them with confidence in His F.xeellen cy 'a administration of the frontier. They were success fill, and a long and happy period of public tranquillity was the result. But the scene is now changed. All is again excite ment and terror along the border The farmers a ?? again plundered and fired upon by maurauJing hands of Kafirs, and we expect daily to receive information o fresh encounters, fresh acts of violence, and deeds oi hlood. ThejKafirs are bolder and more insolent thai over. They are laughing tho Government to scorn, an shaking their assagais In contemptuous defiance and de rision of its power, and the colony is again exposed b the danger ol another K ifir war, With all its horrors which we cannot help remaiking will be feminity er creased and aggiavated by the murderous use that ?ill be made of the nielocks with which llieie savages have been armed by unprincipled and traitorous white icoun drele in Graham's Town and elsewhere.
