The Committee of Five, appointed by the workingmen for the purpose of discovering by means of personal in vestigation in the different wardH of the city where actual destitution exist*, and reporting the samo, with the objoot of having it relieved, have determined upon calling a meeting of the workingmen on Thursday morning next, at ton o'clock, from whence it is intended that they shall march in a body to tbe Park, where the committee will read an account of their proceedings up to Wednesday evening from the time of their appointment. The com mittee have discovered that by far the greatest amount of misery exists in the Sixth and Eleventh wards. Affair* at tile Central Park. Several thousand workingmen congregated around Wagstaff House yesterday morning, cornor of Seventy ninth street, where the bureau of the Superintendent is located. Judging from their appearance, they were mostly laboring men, few being mechanics. Notwith standing tho pressing wants which they felt, and their anxious efforts to secure employment, there ill no drunk enness or any attempt at disorder. They all appeared to be sober, industrious and well inclined. Hearing that tho Commissioners were putting on tho requisite num ber of men, they waitod in expectation that tho din tress they felt, and the influence each one brought to bear, would result in getting work ; but, after waiting from an early hour in tho morning until half-past one o'clock, they were told no more men would be taken on that day. In deed, there is no chance for any further employment, as our reporter was informed that the one thousand men hail been t elected, with foremen, &o,, and that further appli cation was useless. It would be woll that the |K>or people understood this, s<> that no more of their time or patience should bo consumed. Over four thousand letters, many of tliem containing tlnrty or forty names, have been re ceived, roquestiug employment, and without success, as the applicants have been selected from applications sent In by the Aldermen of the various wards, and those only taken on who were known to be in distre.-s and worthy of tbo employment. Besides the small number of hands previously employed, about three hundred more have been added, and when sufficient tools are made and the work properly laid out, the addi tional fbrce will be put on. This will bo next week, and the work will be proceeded with in such a manner as not to permit the severity of winter to interfere with the dis missal of any of the force employed. Consequently, all the winter, frost or snow, the thousand men will be kept on, until the 1st of Api >1, until which time it is expected the fc:f>0,000 will hold out. The work upon which tho men are now employed is removing stone, and preparing for building a wall in the upper part of the park. They work in gangs of IS or '20, a foreman over cacti gang, and overlooked by the Superintendent and hu aids. An ef fort was niaiie by seme rowdies to create a disturbance; but tbe presence of Captain Montgomery, who is univer sally re.-pertel for bis activity and urbanity. soon checked iuiy disposition of the kind being manifested in acts. It is useless to mak>' any iurther applications for employment a' iUe Central I ark The roquiaito number of Laud* are already eng n 1, aud no more will lie tuken on.

Banquet of the New York City Democratic Congrrumen. Tpon the invitation of Hon. John B. IIa.sk in, democratic member of Congress elect from the district composed of Rockland and Westchester counties, tho New York city members elect partook of a dinner at Delmonico's lost evening, and after tho dinner indulged in a conversation on a matter of considerable Importance to themselves and their adherents, but of very little interest to the public. It might be supposed that the near approach of the He cember session of Congress would have had the effect of making the democratic '"ongreesmeu anxious to come to some understanding respecting tho per?on whom they should support for Speaker ol thu House in tho caucus that would be called as soon as they arrived in Washington. Nay, more, it would naturally seem that they would be desirous of exchanging views on questions of great national interest ? on tho Kansas trouble, or the Mormon difficulties, or tho now is sue that will be forced on their attention, growing out of the financial xmhmgHo of the past season. But it wil? nono of those questions that brought the congrosskmal dignity and wisdom together yesterday. Tho important matter upon which they deliberated was who should be tho per sons they would rocommend to Collector Schcll for inspec tors and tide waiters at the Custom He use, and they spent over three hours in tho deliberation. It had been expected that eleven members of Congress would be present , but only eight persons sat down to the table Although Mr Haskin was the host, he gracefully yielded the chair to Horace F. Clark, of the Righth district. At 6 o'clock the guests took their scan, and proceeded to tickle their democratic palate.) with the following bill of fare: ?

There was no lornui I speaking: all *ras otavers&tional and o(T hand. The Chairman. Mr. Clark, spoke feelingly of the pittiless manner in wblch the office seekers liad run him down. Every member of tho Convention that nominated hiin ? and it was n large one, representing all the wards on the upper end of the Island ? was an applicant for a itosltWrn in the Custom House Mr. Schell wan soon to announce* big appointees, and they, tho city congressmen, had to make up their minds m to the persons they would unit"d ly support.

About ten o'clock last night a murder was committed in Not. 16 and 17 North William street by three foreign

pin, supposed to bo Spaniards, who worn drink mg lu the saloon of the late Mr. F. Vincent a short time previous to the perpetration of the crime. The following are the particulars which our reporter obtained on visiting the scene of the murder: ? An oilman, named Hilton, the lain Mr. Vincent and the three young ferei^n.'rij were all Rittinff at a table in Mr. Vincent'H nakNia. drinking together io the most sociable manner They had been tn;<ortvT ior * con siderable time, when Vincent exprMxvxl a d-sire t leave, and had proceeded sumo diaCau;" toward-1 the door before tho foreigners, who hud bo ? all aking pressing him to stay longer and drink more, a last succeeded in persuading him to remain. Vlucen then resumed his seat at tho table and tho drinkiug wa resumed. Ho had, it appears, a considerable amount o money abeut his person, ajid imprudently commenced counting It before them While he wan in tlie act of doing so, however, one, of the young men seizod him, and a bcuille entiled. During the struggle Hilton received a se vere blow from a glass bottle over the eyebrow, and ho was very soon overpowered. AH of his assailant* appear to have been armed , and in the struggle ho received threo stabs in the breuet. any one of which it appear* was suf tlcieDt to cause d< ath. When they had accomplished the hor riblofdecd and secured the money which Vincent had on hi* person, they rushed out of the door into the street; but the cry of " murder" was now raised bj soj??e oua,aud tho night wauhman who was on duty near the place, succeeded in getting hold of one of them. After detaining hlin for a moment, however, he, by iwme inoans or other, subsequently jkm milted him to escape, after which he ran on in tho track of his two associates, who went in the direction of Frankfort street. No arrest has been made by the police, as yet; but as the appearance of the uien is well known, it is believed that their arrest cannot bo long delayed. They are young men, of a sallow complexion? two'of them having dark mousla-Jiios, and wearing dark clothes, boots and Kossuth hats. Tbev are gent-el in their manner and appeariuioe, have a g>>od deal to say , and talk English imperfectly and w'th a foreign accent. Hilton's temple is severely cut by the wound winch he received from the bottle; but, beyond having his nerves considerably tried, he has received no further injury. Vincent was a man about forty live years old, of a rather slight make, and about live feet seven inches in height. He wan tho father of a family, and pro prietor of the saloon in which he met his death. The ap pcnrance of the body of the murdered man was horrible. It lay stretched on tin' ground In a pool of blood, just in side the door, as if there had been a struggle to get out into the street bofore falling. The wounds were very large and deep, and judging bv the vast quantity of blood that covered the floor, it must have (lowed very copiously from them. Tho entire neighborhood of William and Frankfort street- was thrown into a state of the greatest excitement by the affair, and every onu seemed anxious that the murderers may speedily be brought to justice. The Second ward police were promptly on the spot, but could not trace them to their retreat, and they arc at present on the qui vim, iu tho hopes of being able to de tect them. city Polities.

To the rulers of nations we have accorded a higher share of tho world's attention than to "Brother Brigham," as they are the representu tives of their nations; otherwise we should bo forced to say that the Prophet Governor is more spoken of, better known, and c loser watched in all his movements than any living man. Tho recent reports from Utah, indicating that he is about to como before the world iu a new role, bare iuduced us to delve among the records of the movements of which be is now the leader for traces of bis past life which cannot fail to interest the reader. Bri) ham entered upon bis mortal career on the 1st of June, 18C1, at Whitehaven, Vermont, and is OOiuoquenUy now in his titty sixth year. His fathor w?i a farmer, origin '.y from near llontos. Mass.

Brigliam ia no hot bouse plant. The only rear?it '? be enjoyed from the labor of the field and work.- b >p was during the thirteen days ho went to school. Indebted to his parents for moral training, he says of himself ? "From the days of my youth, aud I w ill say from the day that I came upon the stage of action to act for myself, there never was a boy, a man, either old or middle agej, that ever tried to live a life m>>re pure and retlned than your humble servant. I have not infringed upon any law, or trod upon the rights of my neighbors; but I have tried to walk in the paths of righteousness, and live an humble life that 1 might gain aUrnat happiness. I make bold to sjieak thus, though in the Eastern world it is quite unpopular to speak In one's own fraise; but, since I have become a We?tern man, I can mate stump speeches " When about thirty vears of age, Mormooism was intro duced to him by Elder Samuel H. Smith, a brother of the Prophet Joseph. In ISM he was baptize. I, and soon alter was ordained to the ministry of the new faith. In Hep tember of the following year he Joined the body of ? saints" at Klrtland, Ohio, where the leaders of the mnvcmmt were then located. It was h?re and at this date that Brigham * career began which haa carried him to hie present |*isition. Ilirigham has evor been eloquent in hia advocacy of the cause ho had e*|siused. but it waa work and not talk that brought him into the foreground He seems to have reocetved, from In first connection with Mormomsm. that singing, praying and preaching were all good enough in their placc, but if men would he saved they had got to work out ttieir salvnfV.ii. This distinctive i nature in his lath carried into execution soon earned for him the appellate of hard working brother Rriglaim." In the beginning of 18-14 he waa appointed to travel and preach in the Eastern States The ancient doctrine of sending out n>M?tonariee two by two waa adhere, | to in Uie M< rmon church at that period, but at his special request brother Brigham was |?rmitt*rd lo travel alone In nno of bis recent discourse* he alludes to thi* circumstance, and a* he mi now tn a position lo speak out wliat before lie ke|K to himaelf, be leu out that at that early day he had great confidence in hn culling, and had no disposition to risk the marring of hia influence by any weaku<xa or folly of feHow laborers. His eastern mission was soon inter ruptcd by a call made by the then President, Jos.-ph Pmlth . lor "young and middle aged men" of the church to go to iluwouri and protect the Saint* in that StaUi against the persecutions to which they were at times subjected Brigham was among the first whose names were enrolled for Zion's camp. He shouldered the musket and paaaed through the trying journey on foot without a murmur He was closely attached to his leader Joseph, and when troubles surrounded him "I rom foes without or foes within," Brigham was on hand and ready with hia servl ces. Affair* being arranged between the Saints and Ute ?? ntlles without the shedding of blissl at that tune, tlie camp soon got back to Kirtiand At that pla< ??, In Kebru ary of 1836. he was ordained an ajiostle of Jesus Christ, and blessed and set apart t<> his calling under the hands of Oliver Cowdery, Iiuvid Wbitm-ir and Martin Harris, the three witnesses to the Book of Mormon The following month the twelve were appointed a mission to the Eastern Hates, Itr.'ham being especially ap|>ointei| to "open Uie door tn the remnant of Joseph who dwell among the tteritiles."
