Of Immediate Interest to Members of Cor greet.?We hive precured, for the information of the Star's readers, the following synopsis of the quantity cf public lands which will be necessarily contained under the bill thai patsed yesterday, to satisfy those who have already received land wat rants of a lesi de nomination than 160 aores, to wit: Under the act of 1847, there were issued 7,372 warrants of 40 acres, and there mutt be 7;370 warrants of 120 acres issued, or, in all, 884,640 acres. Under the aot ot 1850, there were 103,000 43 acre warrants, and 57,059 80-acre warrants ijsued. To bring all those of both classes up to the 160 acre standard will require an ex penditure of 16,924,720 acree. I'ader the act of 1852 there we 9,000 40 acre warrants issued, and 1,650 80-acre warrants; and to bring them, of both classes, up to the 160-acre standard will require 10,650 acres In all, an expenditure of an aggregate oi 19,021,360 acre* of the publio domain will b? required to aititfy the ola mt of those whe have already received land warrants under late bounty land acts.

I learn that the architect in reconstruct ins St Paul's Church, North Charlej street whieh was burnt, about a year ago, has made quits I a mistake. He built two ponderous walls II upon pillars or oolumns of free stone. These 11 proved insufficient, and have been gradually ' I giving wsy under the immense pressure. It , became neoessary to supplant them with 6trong iron oolumns. This being done, the building I is now thoroughly secure. It was, however, I an inexcusable oversight in not testing the capacity of the stone before rearing walls I upon it Branti Mayer, Esq , one of the agents to I reside in New Orleans, for tbe McDonougb estate, has not yet left He expeots to depart I About the 7tb of this month.
