All the above vessels belonc to Cunard's line. except the Great Britain, Great Western, and Massachusetts, which arrive at this port. This table is of value in various points of view Our Volunteer Force?Our Military Capacity. t The brilliant victory that has been achieved in the three days lighting, at Monterey, by our regular and volunteer soldiers, in the face of a foe twice their number, and a foe too, whose martial character has hitherto been misunderstood and underrated, is well calculated to warm the heart of the patriot at home, and produce respect and reverence for us among foreigners. In the first two battles that the United States has been engaged in since the last war with Great , Britain, our little army of regulars, numbering I only some fifteen hundred, engaged with an enemy numbering six thousand, and in the face of such tremendous odds, routed them at the point of the bayonet, and won a victory that will j bnghten the page of our country's history. In the battle that has recently taken place, our army of regulars and volunteers, numbering under six thousand, marched to within fourteen hundred yards of the enemy's stronghold, and alter a succession of battles that were fought with the greatest bravery and flerseness on both sides, they completely defeated the enemy, that in numbers were double, and in,brnvery almost equal to them- I selves. When it is considered that the men who behav- j cd themselves so gallantly on these occasions, j were drawn promiscuously from all parts of our ' extended country?were strangers to each other | till the time when they met at the rendezvous to j take up arms in defence of their country's honor, , and never had heard the roar of cannon or the rattling of fire arms except on the Fourth of ! July, we have gieat reason to be proud of their prowess in time of danger, and the reliance we can place in our countrymen's courage amiability to defend to the death the free institutions that their patriotic aires bequeathed to them, whenever endangered by foreign or domestic enemies. European nations, and oven the Mexicans, themselves, forgetful of the past deeds that were performed I>y our soldiers, and the battles that i were won by them over the veterans of the old world, have nursed the idea, and expressed it on all occasions, that in time of danger we would be an easy conquest, because no reliance could be placed on citizens who were unaccustomed to the use of arras, and who, from the very nature of our institutions, would be unwilling to submit to the rigor and restraint of military discipline. Such reflections as these have been indulged in by foreigners, and the very name of militia and volunteer ha* been associated with mobs and ragged soldiers. Time, however, the great solver of all problems, has solved this, and proved to the world that American citizens, whether regulars or volunteers, when in the service of their country, make the best of soldiers?submit with hearty good will to the regulations of the profession they have temporarily adopted, und are on all occasions capable of maintaining and defending the national honor, and chastising its enemies, whether they be Mexicans or Europeans. What more triumphant proof could be had of the falsity of the predictions that have been promulgated by the English, regarding the mattritl of our citizen soldiers, than the scenes that occurred in Monterey 1 There our volunteers oovered themselves with glory. Invaders as they were, but in a just cause, they attacked the enemy by his fireside?by his own hearth, which the greatest coward living will defend to the last, and in spite of the disadvantages of their posit on, they maintained a combat in (tin atrAi.la nf thai oitv hnl/tlv r?aialM< lli? il?. >tructive discharges of musketry from their unseen and protected !oe, and finally, with the loss of many of their brave comrades, boldly carried the city and obtained a decisive victory. The enemy, in this case, were not composed of hall civilized Seiks, who knew nothing, comparatively, of the modern improvements in war, but of men who have proved themselves in every respect capable of fighting, and equal to our own troops, except in courage and patriotism, and whose last hope was centred m the result of the day.

U>* **iill*p|?tn? iiiindii in a former article, we spoke of the necessity of sending a Commissioner, to open commercial relations with the most important of the groups of islands scattered over the Pacific, anil to other places not as yet reached by our commerce. When a railroad is drawn from the Atlantic to the Pacific, across the country, and when the arrival of a steamer in the bay of New York, can be telegraphed to the port of San Francisco, on the Pacific, in one hour, Japan will form one ot the first objects of the attention of our government, as well as of our commercial men. it will be absolutely necessary to send a commission to Japan I he importance 01 such a step on the part of our government, will be apparent from the following facts, in relation to the Japanese and Philippine Islands, which we gather from the very able communication of Mr. Aaron H. Palmer. Japan is a feudal empire, of which the Mikado, residing at Miako, is the supreme pontiff as v ell as sovereign. The Ziagoon, his deputy, holds his vice-royal court at Jcddo. This officer having all his time occupied in receiving presents and going through the many ceremonies and formalities characteristic of the Japanese, is unable to i atteud to any state business, the entire of which devolves, in consequence, on the Grand Council of State, composed ot five princes of the imperial blood, and eight others of the highest rank. The President ol this Council is styled Governor of the Empire, and exercises the functions ol Minister of Foreign Affairs, ol the Home Isepartment, and ol Commerce. The present /.iogoon,^Teenpaou, is said to he a very enlightened prince. The government take great interest in scientific matters, and they maintain aboard of linguists nt Nangasaki, to translate and publish in the Japanese language, the latest { discoveries and improvements in arts and sciences. Among their translations are several French scientific works?among others, those of La Placo and La Laude. The Japanese language is pollysyllabie, with an alphabet or forty-eight letters. It is the most pjlished and perfect of any of the languages of Kustern Asia, having no alUnity to any of the Eastern dialects except the Corean. There are four different sets of characters?the Katakana, used by men; the Hirakana, used by women; the Manyokana and the Ycmatokana?the different '1 between which is not explained. The langua is written in columns, frc top to bottom ket! Chinese, and begins at right side, like the Hebrew. One ol the , i'lop I cm ts ol six hundred and thi' lume ich of knowledge and literature is cult ted with assiduity among them. The Imperial Library, at the capital, contains upwards of 150,000 volumes. Mr S ;'lles Williams, printer to the America! rd of foreign missions in China, where he ha ded for upwards of twelve years, and acqn tit al knowledge of the Chinese lang ell as considerable proficiency in Jap Icr the instructions of natives of Japan in s prepared an alphabet of the Katacan a font of which is now being cast at it tj ry in this city, for printing the'New Testament I other such works, in the Japanese tongue The Dutch have always found the trade with Japan very profitable, and have been, hitherto, successful in frustrating the attempts of other nations to open intercourse with that country. They have a factory a' the island of Dezima, in the harbor of Nangasiki (an artificial island, somewhat I ?*i ? 1 .1?.?,u? .r .... n.. I similar wj, auu ai/uui mo ui uui ^a^uu vjai* , den) for which they have secured a monopoly of the trade. The people of Japan, however, evince | an increasing desire for intercourse with foreigners, and the government seem willing to relax the restrictions that have hitherto prohibited trade j and commerce with all foreign nations, except i the Dutch We learn that Mr. Palmer has for a ' number of years past disseminated pamphlets, ! periodicals, and newspapers, in that country, all j tending to enlighten the natives in relation to \ this aountry, and showing the advantages of; commercial intercourse with the United States. I The produce of Japan embraces all the pro- i ducts of the tropics and temperate zones. The ! tea plant and mulberry (for silk worms,) are extensively cultivated. The internal trade is very considerable. At Ginagawa, the port of Jeddo, a thousand vessels are sometimes collected. The great mart for foreign jioods brought by Dutch and Chinese vessels to Nangasaki, is Ohosaka, a populous city at the mouth of the river Todogawa, in the island of Niphon, distinguished for the wealth, industry and enterprise of its inhabitants. The population of the empire is estimated at ; about lilty millions, exclusive of its denenden-j cies, the islands of Matsinai, Sighnlion, Kuriles, Loo Choo, &c., and the annual revenues are estimated at about $125,000,000. It would be very desirable, as Mr. Palmer suggests, that our whale ships and other vessels employed in traffic off the coasts of Japan, should have the privilege, in addition to the advantages of commercial intercourse to be secured by treaty. _r .... .r ti,. i r .1: UI CIUCIIII^ ?*uj VI iuo puna aim uaiuurB Ol \l\C Japanese archipelago for refreshment or repairs Tho aggregate population of the countries men- j tioned by Mr. Palmer as affording openings for commercial intercourse, exclusive of the Comoro Islands and Madagascar, amounts in round numbers to 120,000,000 The " Royal Economical Society of the Philip- j pine Islancfs," was established at Manilla, in 1780, with a view to the promotion of science, arts, agriculture and commerce in those islands. It is liberally endowed by the government. The society numbers among its efhcers the Intendant General, the Archbishop, and other high functionaries, as well as the principal merchants and planters. It publishes annually the Almanaque Filippina, a statistical almanac of the colony. It is preparing to publish the transactions of the society. The islands, whioh form an extensive archipelago, are very fertile, yielding all the products of the tropics in abundance. Manilla, the principal port, has an extensive and increasing commerce with China, British India, the Intfian Archipelago, Australia. Europe, and the|United Sta'es In 1843 Mr. Palmer sent out, by order of the society, several specimens of American cotton and tobacco seed. The Philippines, with their dependencies, are divided into thirty two provinces, under the local ' administration of Governors and Deputy Governors. The Catholic missionaries have made a great number of conversions to that faith.? Manilla is the see of an Archbishop, and there are three suffrage bishops in tne provinces. The Bishop of New Segovia, in the island of Luron, wrote in 1S37 that his diocese consisted of 600,000 Christian souls. The colony i is in a very nourishing condition. The entire po1 pulation amounts to about 4.200,000. It will be seen from these facts how very imi portant to American interests it is to have comI mercinl relations opened with those countries. It ' is not alone in a commercial point of view that | we would be benefitted by an intercourse with Japan and the Philippine Islands. The interests i of science would also be advanced It is impossible to calculate the number of discoveries in botany, mineralogy, and natural history, that an intercourse with the Japanese archipelago and the Philippines would give rise to. We trust that our government, taking all these things into consideration, will take the earliest opportunity to open relations with these countries. Superior Court, Before Judge Oakley. Oct. 14.?

We apprehend that several Teasels along the ceast must hare met with n fatal disaster in the heavy gale The following additional particulars will give some idea of the fury of the gale :? In the vicinity of Castle Garden three ol the traea that ornament that place, have been torn up by the roots, and there la a perfect wreck of ; broken limbs, strewn about in all quarters Laborers arc employed in repairing tho break made in the garden wall, over which the sea actually washed, ! sweeping away a vast uuantity ol earth and I stone, And making a regular breach. The roofs : of a whole block of houses in Hamilton'street have been blown down. The two steeples, belonging i to the Episcopal Church, haw been also tumbled down, and fell across the railroad track. A beautiful mulberry tree, in the Park, was torn up by the roots. Also, two trees in James street. The awiungi, hi every part of .is.. V.sv- , _11 e ... , <MnJ t Bowery, end Chatham street present a pertert wreck At Jersey City three ships have been stink, in Brook lyn two shanties have been blown down; tint, fortunately, no lives vsk lost. Seven trees were blown down in the Washington parade ground, all beautiful willows; one of them was blown right across McDougal street Two beautiful poplar trees and a liberty pole were blown down at the corner of Hudson and Charlton streets, but did no damage. A tree in Broome street wns , torn up by the roots. Another tree in Chambers street i was also torn up by the roots. The awnings in the Bowery seemed to have met with the full vengeance of the storm At Rockaway the gale was exceedingly severe. At 5 o'clock the extensive range of stables and carriage houses attached to the Pavilion, owned by Stephen Whitney, were blown down and scattered to th.- adjoining fields. The building contained no horses: but a number of valuable carriages, belonging to Mr. Cranston, tha proprietor of the Pavilion, >? ere crushed. The neighbor- : ing cottages suffered somewhat; the stable attached to the cottage of Mr. Fiak was partly unroofed. No vessel appeared to have suffered in that neighborhood, though Urge quantities of timber, barrels, lie., were washed upon the beach. The Pavillion stood the gele without the least damage, which must he attributed to the manner in which it was built, by introducing heavy iron braces and fastenings, to the extent of over forty tons, which, of course.accounts | for its being able to withstand tha severe gale iu that most exposed situation. Further east on the island tharo has heen considerable damage At Suffolk Station, upon the Long Island ltail road, the station ami engine bouse wereTdown down. The passengers from Boston, by the day line via the Long Island Railroad, cossed the Sound in the height of the gale, in tke steamer New Haven, in S hears end 6 minutes, end arrived at Brooklyn at 9 P. M. The reports from the const will be looked for with : much anxiety, until the results shall have been fully ascertained.

The brig Prince de Joinvillo, lying at pier No 8 North 1 River, came in contact with the British brig 8t. Margaret, carrying away her jib-boom, bowsprit and shrouds, and was much chafed. We hear of no damage dona to the shipping at quarantine ground. Several of the vessels dragged their anchors. Among the vessels there were the packet ship Virginian, for Liverpool; Atlas, for do ; barque Candace, from Canton: Saranac, from New Orleans; brig Leonora and brig Savannah, for Savannah. The south side of , the quarantine dock was broken up and damaged about i (1,000 to (1,000. At the new landing at Stapleton, Staten Island, a brick store, just completed for J. De Forest, had the roof { blown ?A', and the walls partially knocked down. The I shore road was much damaged by the sea breaking over it The dock at Van Dozer's landing was somewhat injured.

The facing of the dock upon the < i Doctor'* boarding office stand, i* all earned away. Two brick houses, nearly finished, near the lower landing, j were blown down. Several docks along the Island were ; more or less damaged ; trees blown down, &c. The yacht Maria, at Hoboken, was damaged by a sloop i being Mown into her, and come near sinking. The Brooklyn South ferry boat New York, one of the , largest and finest beats belonging to the coinuany, as she left the Brooklyn side, late in the afternoon, had the roof of ti e gentlemen's cabin blown away. It struck the smoke pipe with such force as to carry it off, even with . the deok- The boat had just left the wharf. There were but few on board other than the crew, and nobody waa hurt. The sea wall on the battery was broken up for near ly one hundred yards. Several willow and other trees were torn up by the roots, while others had large branches torn oft. The roof of a large store at the corner of Coentis slip 1 and Water street was blown down. The chimney of a house in Henry street, nearly opposite Birmingham street, was carried away Some anxiety is felt for tLe new ship New World, ; which sailed on Monday from Boston for this port She \ is a ship of the largest sire, over 1400 tons, strongly built, 1 and commanded nv one of our most experienced shipmasters, Capt Skiddy, so we trust that she has weather ! ed the storm in safety. The vessel had no cargo, but 40i> ! tons of ballast, on board. 8he did not leave Boston till | noon on Monday, and from the wind conld have been scarcely around Cape Cod when the blow commenced A negro man in Madison street was struck by a scuttle blewn from a house, and sliahtly hurt. little girl I at the corner of Madiaon and Catharine streets, was blown down by a sudden gust, which prostrated an awn | ing frame at the same time. She would have been crushed by the falling posts had not a barrel along side of which she had fallen received the first shock of the ' blow. The pilot boat Phantom, in trying to get in the Horse Shoe, in the late gale, carried away her jib. The British ship Madras, Capt. Collins, which sailed from this port for Rotterdam on the 26th uit, experienced a hurricane on the 6th inst. in lat 40 46, ion. 67 3fl,which caused her to spring a leak of three to four f?et per hour; split rails, stove bulwarks, and carried away head, and was obliged to return to repair damages In coming over the bar in the late gale, carried away mizen lopmast, main topsail yard, split main topsail, mizen topsail, spanker, and main top-gallantsail. THK omit ItLSKWHkRK. The storm of Tuesday seems to have raged aouth of 11s with more violence than hare. In Philadelphia, the I Chroniclr of yesterday says The rain commenced ; about 3 o'clock yesterday morning, and continued falling ! briskly till afternoon, when it came down in torrents, j and the wind blew a hurricane. This continued till 6 o'l clock, when the rain stopped, but the wind continued | high, and after 6 o'clock it commenced raining again ? j I This kept the election polls pretty clear all day. The tremendous blow from the northeast did great mischief in various parts of the city. The large transparency at the whig head quarters, in 8ixth street, opposite Minor, was torn to pieces by the wind. The large flag at the native head quarters, in Cbesnut street below Sixth, was also much torn. It was loaned by Horstman The flag at the democratic head quarters, in Sixth street below Shippen, was completely blown to shreds. Part of the 1 roof of the Assembly Buildings was blown off. The tin I roof of W. H. Oatrmer's New York railroad oflice, on 1 Delaware avenue, below Walnut street, was blown off. The chimney of a back building attached to the dwelling house of Mr. J. M. Frailey, in Schuylkill Sixth street, below Walnut, was blown down, crushing in the roof to the floor of the dining room, from which the family had only retired but a lew minutes, making quite a narrow escape The fences in the vicinity were all blown down. Part of the roof was blown ofl' of the large store at the northeast corner of Seventh and Market streets. The tide in the Delawaro was unusually high, and the river j very rough and boisterous. I.athwvemng at 7 o'clock the water had risen over the wharves and still an hour aod a half to rite. The steamer John Stevens was compelled to seek shelter from the gale en the Camden shore. The | race boata Ariel and Dolly wero blown from their moor. : ings, at the lower point of the Island, and dashed to piecai.

An opportunity for such enjoyment does not oocur more than once in a life-time. "Thc Seasobs," at TBI Tabsmucle.?There was a C..: ? .mII.kaa at ika TaKawna^la last avaninV tn hfliir the oratorio of "The Seaeona," produced under the di- , rection of Mr. George Loder. The orcheetra and chorui were very fine.and exhibited a good deal of careful drill- j ing. Miie Northall acquitted heteelf very cieditably in , her part, but the other two aolo porta were below medi- I ocrity. Why not have at leaat a reipectable tenor and | ban ? We think it ii very bad policy on the part pf the ; management not to engage euperior talent for theae parti. \ Mr. Loder led with hii uiual skill and vigor, and the : orcheitra wai in excellent training. ThMttkaU, Pabk Thiatbx.?The new play of the "Wife"! Se | cret," wai repeated tact evening to a very large and 1 faihionable audience, and it would appear that the oftener it ii performed, the more and the better it ia appreciated. It ia aeldom that we aee a play written for the expreaa purpoee of diaplaying the peculiar powers of a particular actor or actreaa, carrying with it a general intereat in the plot. Or ao framed as to permit the subordinate porta to harmonize well with the important ones. In the f' Wife'a Secret," there ia a surprising conformity of all the porta with each other. The working of the plot ia not buftened with a multitude of character!, there being jtial a sufficient number to carry it out hand scneiy, ana no more, ui courie, me coiei interest is ; centered in the two principal character!, but the otheri ! are made ao nooe??ary to the denouement, that each ii an important part in ltaelf. In fine, few modern plays equal thia in beauty of conception, or in the artistic management of the plot Each part is admirably sustained. Fisher's Jabez, Mrs. Abbott's Maud, and Dyott's Lord Arden, are admirably acted. The house last night was nearly one-third better than either Monday or Tuesday evanibg, a strong proof of the success of this sterling play. It is certainly the best piece that has appeared since the " Hunchback" of Knowles. It is good from first to last. The " Walter, trust me" of Mrs Kean, in the fifth act. is the grand pomt of the play, and is fully I equal in intensity of feeling and startling energy to the I "Do it" of Julia, or even the " Hereafter" of Lady Macbeth. This fine play is to be repeated to-night with the burlesque opera of " Fortunio," with Mrs. Hunt in the I principal part. Bowser Thsatbs.?A grand dramatic spectacle is in | preparation at the Bowery Theatre, which is to outdo alj i that has been hitherto seen upon that stage. Upwards of ! one hundred new, splendid and characteristic dresses, have been made up expressly for it. The scenery is j likewise ail new. The piece is founded upon the ro- | mance, by Edward Maturin, Esq. of "Montezuma." Who' i ever has read the work, will perceive at onca the oppof tunity it affords for scenic display. The halls of Monteruma ; The treasure chamber ; the temple of the < Teocalli, are all made available; while in the last scene, a novel effect will be attempted never yet tried in any theatre The habits of the Mexicans, prior to their subjucgtion by Spain, are accurately pictured, while every ' thing concerning Mexioo, at the present moment, must be |>ectiliarly interesting to all, where our gallant army is reaping laurels and hastening to plant the star spangled banner in the heart of the city of the Aztecs. Greenwich Theatre.?Mr. Freer continues to pro- ! cure foi the patrons of this establishment a variety of ex cellent entertainments. This is good policy, and it is by just such management that the Greenwich will flourish. To-night the drama of "The Brigand" will be performed, with Miss Mary Duff and Mr Freer in the principal parts. Mr. John Winans, of comic celebrity, will afterwards appear in the comedy of the "Cabman." Mrs. McLean will appear in "Clari. the Maid of Milan," and the entertainments will conclude with the drama of "8miles and Tears." There will be, besides, a variety of songs and dances?a great bill. Palmo's Ofcra House.?Mr. Alexander had another numerous and highly respectable audience lait evening at his second entertainment, and proved himself, to sey the least, inferior to none in his art Some of his leger- I demainic feats are wonderfully deceptive, at the same time amusing, as the applause of his auditors well testi- , fled. The experiment of " The Devil's Cooking," was exceedingly well carried through, and is one of the finest ' exhibitions of the magic art that we ever have witnessed To-night Mr. Alexander will perform eighteen or twenty ' of his choice deceptive experiments, and the dances j which were received with so much satisfaction last evening, will be repeated. The "Ureat Bear Polka" is a gem of its kind. We hepe to meet a crowded house. The Aliiamra Saloon.?This delightful establishment is now thrown open to the public, at the uoprece. | dented low charge of one shilling for admission, for which sum visiters may nightly enjoy the most popular and pleasing vocal and instrumental music?splendidly per. j formed in the inott commodiem, elegant, and admirably adapted musical rotnnda in the city. Thia move- I ment on the part ef the directors ia a bold experiment; relying on the rapidly increasing taste for music among ! all classes, they offer to all an opportunity of cultivating that taste, and passing their evenings rationally and delightfully at an expense almost nominal. The talent en- , gaged, and the ability of Mr. Loder, the mttaical director, are sufficient guaranty for the excellence of the entertainments, while the established respectability ol the Alhamra, and the personal superintendence of Mr Corbyn. will ensure the strictest order and decorum, and render this beautiful saloon the resort of our most respectable citizens, an I a place of recreation which families and ladies may visit and pass their evenings in with as much security and comfort as if at their own homes. This is the age Tor combining excellence and economy, [ and this experiment cannot but prove successful. Bowcrt Circus.?The novelties at thia spirited place | of public amusement crowd upon each other in such ' rapid succession, that we scarcely know which to call attention to. Dale, the great ve tigeur and horiman, la every night greeted with the most deafening applause. Mis a ct of horsemanship, throwing a eomeraet on t he horse's back during his rapid flight, is witnessed with astonishment The wrestler, Charles, who proclaims himself king of his art, has met with his match in a German, belonging to this city, who contended with him for victory on Tuesday for upwards of an hour, when they both withdrew from absolute exhaustion. It was one ofthemost animated and beautiful displays of ancient wrestling conceivable?the combatants, who were not playing for mere effect, frequently forming moat of those celebrated attitudes familiar in all the old pictures and statuary of the games of ancient Greeoe. Mons. Carrisre, the French gentleman with whom Mons. Charles declined to wrestle on Tuesday, has challenged him to a trial of skill on Saturday evening, which the latter has accepted This will be one of the grandest displays of that time honored exercise ever witnessed in this country. To-night there will be tome splendid horteananship by Dale, Lipman, Smith, and the rest. Mr. Wallack, since his arrival by tha Britannia, in September, at Boston, baa gone through a most brilliant engagement in that city, in Philadelphia and Baltimore He began his second engagement in Philadelphia last night, at the and ol wmcn na (oei ifiui (o ovridu. ma uuuivru | engagements, and previous arrangements at tha Park, will prevent his acting in thia city till spring, whan ha will find hia old frianda here will not ba laaa glad to aee him than hia frianda in othar citiaa.

No where could each fine amusement be witaaaeed to each advantage aa at Oestle Harden, and the raft galleries that eutTouud It, as well ?* the whole line along the Battery, will be crowded to exec-* on this occasion. There will be a sort of cocte?t 10 the display ef fireworks, which takes place on the night of the 21st instant. Several competitor* will come forward. This will be a beautiful affair, and will be attended by thousands The managers have determined to add every possible feature of attraction to tha Fair thie season. Perhaps tha moet astonishing in vantion that is to be fottnd among the magnificent dieplay that ornamants tha Fair now, will strike the eye oi the visiter more forcibly than that which is called the " Mechanical Chirographer," or writing machine for the are of the blind. The instrument resembles a pianoforte, and the various letters of tha alphabet end figures, are all cut on different keys and raised so that the operator ii enabled to leenne letter i ms dwuiii u intended Tor the use of the blind, and those who cannot uaa a pan in consequence of nervousness, paralysis in tha hand, or other infirmity it operates by striking ivory keye with the linger*, ai in a pianoforte. The one on exhibition i* operated by power applied to a crank. It la intended to tie operated upon by any power moit convenient to be applied Tbii is the ftrat machine ever conitructed of this kind, and it wai takan immediately from the hand* of tbe manufacturer, without a tingle hour'i trial, to tha Fair. The gentleman who writes with it, ttatat he never had practised with it a moment, and never had seen it till the last Monday, and the inventer had never written with it one halfhour before the commencement of the Fair. A close examination will show that there is no reason why it will not be perfectly practicable to write with it as rapidly as with a pen. The machine ha* two pens, and two sheets of paper being applied, two copies can be written simultaneously, without any extra skill or ex penditure of physical energy. The Oothic condensed letter is used in this machine, but it is easy to perceive that any kind of letter can bd used with eaual facility. This machine waa not completed till 3 o'clock in the afternoon of Monday last, and without half an horn's trial, it was packed up and onboard the steamboat Atlantic ,at 6 o'clock, at Norwich. Connecticut, and aet up at Castle Garden, in New York, the subsequent mornincr TKo mnat n/inrflniant nnil rhnaimst u-av tn niwiruln it will be by a email treadle, with the foot. In thii machine too much power ii required ; but in future machines but very alight power will be required, and then it can be operated with perfect convenience by the foot. It would readily suggest itself to one conversant with machinery, that it might very conveniently be operated by a weight or by a spring. The crank, hv which, the person turns it at the fair, was put on only as a temporary expedient, as the maker had not time to finish it Any person can soe with what ease one can write with this machine, and when he becomes acquainted with the location ef each key, so that he will be enabled to touch it involuntarily, as a skilful pianist does the keys of his piano, with what facility ho cuu write t And if he examines the position in which the tierson can sit during the operation, he will see that it is decidedly superior to that of the ODe who is obliged to lean over a table or stand at a desk. Though this machino was intended primarily for the use of the blind, and those who are unable to use a pen, it will, on trial, be found of great utility in making records, where great legibility, beauty, and compactness age peculiarly desirable. The magnetic baths next form a prominent feature of attraction. Foople have been magnetised in various ways out of the water; but the invention of magnetic batns Juat keeps pace with the improvements of the age In placing the hands, or any portion of the body in water, the effects are immediately felt This invention will lead to some further ones, which, with the application of science, will yet be turned to advantage. The sowing machines show considerable improvement. A verv beau tit'ul quilt, which hang* on the left of the entrance, and beyond|the clerk'* <le*k, really i* of auch striking beauty, and display* *o much skill and persevere nee in the maker, that it deserves special notice. It contains 10,000 blocks of two diamonds, each containing sixteen stitches, or in all 310,000 stitches. It represent* a country scene, and has over fifty different colors of silk in its composition. It attracts crowds of ladies. The next attractive feature is an ingenious invention?a game at cards, intended to make the player acquainted with the history of England, while it contributes much to amusement. Master William C. Loughton, a fine intelligent bey, fourteen years of age, has been the inventor. This intelligent boy will shortly publish a game of American history, which will meet with every encouragement from every true friend of American genius and enterprise We wish him every possible success. The band from the Blind Institution wUl perform at this fair this afternoon and evening Model or New Yobk.?This astonishing piece of mechanism is daily attracting crowds at the Minerva rooms. It is a perfect miniature representation of not only each street, and house, and public building in the city, but also every door and window are represented, There is a splendid engraving of the ffew I or* Herald establishment on the frame work, as well as of most of the principal public buildings in the city. Yacht Race.?A race was te have come off between the "Coquette" and the " Siren" yesterday, but in consequence of some misunderstanding between the friends of both no race took place. It is expected, however, that a trial of speed will still be tested between these two splendid yachts. The race, if it comes off, will be an interesting one. The Regatta.?It will be perceived, on reference to our advertising columns, that a regatta will come off at Castle Garden, on Saturday, under the special patronage of the Manager* at the Fair. Fixe ?A fire occurred at No. 10 Rose street, about 6 o'clock, P.M. yesterday. The fire originated in the attic. Very little damage was sustained. Supposed to be the work of an incendiary. Meeting or Inventobs ?The annual address before mii Bwinjr was ueuveruu uui evening oy uoorge uilford, Esq. counsellor at law. it waa a very able addresa, and called forth unanimoua applause. We regret that press of matter upon our columns prevents our giving a full report of the address. OBArrs.?We have received from A. G.

Sib I hare waited until to-dav. in the hope that some gentleman on board the Bo*ton yachts would hate corrected the very material errors contained in your paper of Sunday, rolotire to the match between the Maria and Coquette. In its stead, I find in the HrralJ of Monday?though an entirely different version of the affair?an equally boasting account of the race, the delicacy and accuracy of which you will be enabled to judge of from the following statement .?On the day prior to the race, in discussing with Messrs Perkins and Parsons the terms of it, they contended that a seven knot breeze and over, meant such a breeze as would enable vaaael to maka ntm miles or over, good for tho whole distance. and insisted that the race wai to he ran over a rain, until the whole dietance. SO miles, should be accomplished in eeeen houra. I endeavored to prevail on them to consent that, after starting in a seven knot breeze, tho yacht that cine first to the station boat should win, from the very obvious difficulty of hitting upon a day in which 60 miles could be done in seven, hours at sea. Tho wind might increase to a gala, or die away to a calm, and it might take a month, or perhaps three, to settle the matter. I could not prevau on them to take my view of it, and therefore gave it up. What I predicted, happened on Saturday. It blew se hard on that day that I will venture to assert that no vessel that ever carried canvass could, under the same circumstances, have performed the distance. There was a heavy sea. and a flood tide to stem in going down, and in returning, an ebb to stem for more than half the distance. So confident was I that , it was impossible to do it. that I offered to pav Mr. Per1 kins the money if he could accomplish it, while I would ; lay fast at my anchorage. Mr. Parsons Insisted that I should So to the buoy and start, or he would claim the wager, esirous and determined to have no,more dispute about I this matter than I could possibly avoid, (but without see ing exactly the right he had to claim this) I got under { way, beat out to the buoy, and started with him. By the ' time we got there, the wind had moderated, and he shook out hit reefs, hoisted and boomed out his foresail, and went rolling and careering along Knowing tho utter imposeibilUy of performing the twenty-five miles | against the flood tide, In such time as the terms of the race required, I gave myaelf no trouble about it, but 1 went quietly on with my reefa in, beating him a little, and feeling sure, that If 1 could beat him under inch aail before the wind, 1 should do it on a wind. Mr Parsons had agreed to have the stake boat placed at the requisite distance, 36 miles; instead of which she was found fouror five miles short of it. To prevent mistakes about the dltI tance. a chart had been marked by Mr. Blunt, and a clr' cla drawn from a point on Long Island, 36 miles from the Hook or white buoy on the bar, to point on the Jersey shore, and twenty five miles from the buoy. This chart was shown to Mr. Parsons as a guide in placing the stake boat, which should hare been, according to Mr. Blunt's measure, west of the Woodlands, instead of which the north side of Squam Inlet, (from bearings taken by the pilots, Captain Rogers, and other gentle* men on board) bore by compass 8 W by W. The time, two hours and lour or five minutes, in which twentyfive miles is claimed to have been done against a flood tide, in a heavy sea. proves, if other proof were wasting, the distance to have been far short of 33 miles. I only refer to this to shew, that my unwillingness to start, and attempt to do fifty miles in the time, I failed to do forty, was not an error of judgment I rounded the Northern Light tome two or three minutes ahead of the " Coquette but from the difficulty of hauling ait so large a sail, the " Maria" fell considerably^ toward before it could bo properly secured in its place. I looked to see the Cequatte pass to windward on the first stretch, as hersneets were aA, and she on wind in a moment. At the expiration of half an hour we both tacked, the Coquette ahead and a little to leeward?in 10 or 15 minutea the Maria overhauled her end paesed to windward of har, at a rate that would not have left the relative speed of the two boats, in ?ueh weather, long doubtful. In a few minute* after we had passed her, a aevere shock was fait, the #ay of the vessel was partially stopped, and she fell oft' almost before the wind Her helm wai immediately put hard , a-lee, and her main-sheet eated off with the hope of get' ting sufficient way on her to come about before she reached the shoal water?this, after a time, we accomplished) but before we could get rid of the broken portions of the centre-board, (the whole foward part of which was broken by the blow) the Coquette wai three miiea dead te windward of us While in this state, the Northern Light came up and soon passed by us in the course of half hoar we got rid, a* weaupposed, of the looreand wooden psrts : of the broken centre-board, which had before encumber ed us, and with the helpof the alter board, and the small ; remain* of the fail on, we came up with, passed, and beat the Northern Light, some twe miles to the Hook. It is my opinion that, bnt for the accident, the Maris would have beaten the Coquette with the greatest ease As a proof of the sincerity of this opinion, I offer to rail the < same race over again, for 000, 1,000, or 6.000 dollars, as soon as the Maria can be again properly refitted. That the was crippled, and for a time disabled, the gentlemen on bourJ the Coquette must hare seen. Their aUenoe seemed to sustain the statements of your correspondent. How far this was kind or generous, 1 leara for yourself and others to say. Your ob't aerrant, JOHN C STEVENS, Com'rofthe N Y. Yacht Club. P. 8.?Mr. Parsons was the only referee on board tha Coquette, and as no inner stake boat was placed, the sale judge ol the fecw Ho is therefore ai much my referee as Mr. Perkins, and hit decision will govern me, which, when I receive, I shall most cheerfuiTy aorord to. My letters to Mr. Perkins, asking such decision, have, I fear, miscarried, as I have as yet received neither answer or decision. J. C. 8. The Grest Taor To-dav at tk Union Counts, L 1?
