\I5VV YORK HERALD. New lark, Tuesday, April IB, 1N14. Texas and Trouble at Last. We refer our readeri to the important correspondence from Washington, to be found under our Postscript head, communicating the terms of the new Treaty for the annexation of Texas to this />minfrtr u?ou ??? * ? *'? ...*^11 HBO juuuauiy ?ciu IU mc ocna?c t vday, or will be early this week. The mastermind of John C. Calhoun has placed this measure in a shape that will compel both parties to show their hands to the country in thirty day*, either one w ay or the other. Great excitement begins to prevail at Washington. In addition, we also learn that the Oregon negociation is arrested for the present. Things begin to wear a very momentous shape as regards our foreign relatious. Cirand Tjrier Movements. We have already given the first bulletin issued by the Grand Central Committee in Washington, in favor of Caytuin Tyler, under the direction of John Jones?the immortal John Jones?not the button maker?but the Warwick of the present age?John Jones, the President-maker. Since the publication of that bulletin, we have seen a variety of movements in six or seven ot the States of the Union?Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Western New York, and other places,?with the great object of seeing whether something could not be done in the way of making Captain Tyler the next President At Washington this movement is progressing with astonishing vigor?a new collection of the most powerful gas having been coinpressed, and discharged a few days ago in the following masterly bulletin, No. 2:? To the Democratic KepubUcans of the United States. Kci.low Citizks* : I Believing that the ruiult of the approaching struggle lor the Presidency, will mark an era in the history of the Republic,we venture to aJ Iress to you a lew words of sober counsel The ocnirrenoaof the past four years, regarded in connexion with the present aspect of affairs, and the shadows of coming events, cannot fail to impress every reflecting mind that something more is portended than the usual consequences of the casual ascendancy of one party and the detrusion of its adversary. The sanguine fiiendof the advancement of mankind, who reposes in the belief that each succeeding year is but another st? p in the progress o! the human race to an equality of condition and happiness, may refuse to admit that the change which is now menaced in the partisan auspices of the only true Republican liovernment on earth, can effect the cause of liberty. Let none be misled by this delusion. In this condition of the democratic party, a large number of republicans who had been called to Washington from various quarters of the Union, hv other duties, Sjiontaneouslv assembled to consult and devise, if possible, some means ot averting the impending catastrophe. The only source ol relief was fouud to be in the nomination of Johu Tyler for re-election His name and achievemen's only were deemed adequate to the task of restoring the confidence of the people, reviving their drooping spirits, and reinvigorating th<-in for the contest. Associated with his name alone, could be offered new issues,such as the crisis demanded He only, of all the eminent statesmen presented for the ('hie' Magistracy, (assessed that hold upon the sympathy and affections of the great mass "I the people indispensable in such an encounter as that with which the democracy is menaced by their adver sary. Springing from the purest republican stock of old Virginia.schooled at the footstool of the Sage of Monticello. offering to his countrymen the pledge of along life of illustrious service in the cause of democracy?fresh from an emhi tered struggle with the agents of the moneyed interests, in which, with his unaided arm, he had prostrated them ?vindicating the too long neglected rights of our fellow citizens on the Northern frontier, and giving tu thuui honorable peace and guaranteeing a brilliant future -tendering to the South the only security which can be offered against the torch and knife of the fanatic, the reannexation of Texas, of which his predecessors had suffered us to he despoiled?to the West and Southwest, free access to the Pacific, and the widest lange for their skill and enterprise in the occupation of Oregon? these invest the name and fame of John Tyler with a Nationality which those of no other living statesman of America possess. We present, then, to the Democratic Republicans of the Unien a Hag under which they can conquer ! Do they prefer defeat, and, perhaps, annihilation to victory and permanent power? Have principles ceased to possess any value in their view? Can that be highly estimated which is hazarded on so slight a pretence as the gratification of one man, whatever may he his merits? Asa question of right, is nothing due to John Tyler from the Democracy, which Is withheld ? Do they not owe it to themselves, to their principles, to the cause of justice, to continue him in a station, the power of which has been employed solely for the glory and welfare of the People, the v judication and re-establishment of the Republican faith 7 [W4 lie aland nrrineil of nnv hiarh crime or mix demeanor which justifies them in removing him from a pout, the varied and arduous duties of which he has performed with such signal fidelity and success 7 The evidences of a popular recognition of his claims, are daily multiplying No', a mail arrives which does not bring to us encouraging proofs that the caucus managers have been unsuccessful in their unholy efforts to stifle the feelings of the people in his behalf. North, Houth, Kust and West, the unshackled masses are moving in his favor. They see in his nomination the onlyhope of escape from the rule of their opponent for the next twenty years. True to themselves, to their principles, an I the cause of liberty, they repel the seductive approaches of those who would bind their limbs with the manacles of an irresponsible and selfish cabal. We beseech our friends everywhere to move forward Tersevere in the good work. The signs are auspicious. A united, energetic, and determined effort will yet save the party. Let no county or district in the Union be unrepresented in the Tyler Democratic National Convention which is to assemble at Haltinore on the 4th Monday of May next. Be vigilant, be active and harmonious. Suffer not the desponding or compromising friend to control your councils Select firm, decided, unyielding friends of John Tyler, ami none other, as delegates Let none doubt the result. If we fail, the responsibility is not ours. But we will not fail. For? " Freedom's battle once begun, Though baffled oft, is ever won." By order ol the Tyler Democratic Central Committee. JAMES C. ZABRI8KIE, Chairman. J. B. Joists, Secretary. Washington, April 10th, 1S4-L This is capital. The distinct grounds on whicli Captain Tyler is to be made next President, are here very plausibly put forth. Texas is an important element in this movement, but Texas will operate probably more in the south and south-west titan in this part of the country. Hereaway, North, and particularly in New York, the definite arrangements made by Captain Bob Tyler, to remove the Collector and all the other officials here, will have n much more important bearing, in bringing about vast meetings and great efforts for the assembling ol the Tyler forces, at the Tyler Convention, to be held on the same day that the Van Huren Convention meets in Baltimore. The prosp?ct of getting hold of Texas may do very well for a southern latitude, hut here we want the "spoils" in hand, and here they are cooked and piping hot in the Custom House, the I'ost Office and other government pantries in this city. With the prospect in a few * HinnfllH 'rW Mnnn lit lesnat au Pfhtirrr^ua plndoa ifanvu. Kent session?-of having the whole of -these offices in this city spread before the numerous parties here who are hungering and thirsting after something, we have no doubt that the Tyler men may now get up a party of some kind in the different wards. It is very true that the iwhig press may talk a little against this movement, but they can't do much, for the "natives" have effectually silenced the whigs as a party h iving any influence in this city. Nor will the locofocos dare to present any obstacles, tor they also have been obliged to " knock under" to the natives. Thus the matter stands then at the present moment. There never was such a favorable opportunity for the re-organization of the Tyler party. There never was such a chance of ascertaining whether they cannot really get one or two electoral voteH throughout the Union, trusting to good luck fort he rest. The " natives," have effectually broken down the riotous and unruly disposition of the two parties, anil are able and willing to protect the Tyler men from any disturbance. Indeed, the natives have declared, that to he h Tyler man, is no disqualification for office under their regime. Ho fnr from having any objection to it, it is possible they would aid a Tyler organization. And then Captain Tyler and his friends are determined to throw\all the government offices in this city before the people, making the only condition of tenure, a pledge to go for the Captain as the candidate for the Presidency. With all these view.-, and matters before us, we do think there is some probability now of creating a little bit of a stir in favor of Captain Tyler. We desire the friends of Mr Clay and Mr. Van Huren, however, not to be alarmed, because the danger to them is after all not absolutely appalling. Lei thein give the Captain's friends plenty of rope Let tlutii go their own way. If they can eleei vfr. Tyler, why notf We believe in his good luck. We don't see any other agency likely to cover him with success; but his good luck has heretofore never failed him, and we trust it never will. Philosophical Mission to Ernopi.?We understand that Mr. Albert Brisbane?the celebrated apostle of the new revelation of society, vouchsafed to that immortal spirit, Charles Fourier, as lie is called after the flesh?sails to-day in the Rood ship Francois I., for France, Germany, and the rest of Eurojie. Mr. Brisbane goes as a delegate from the great " Fourier Convention" of this country, and his object is to strengthen and extend the ligaments which unite the brethren in the old and new world. We wish hint a very prosperous voyage, and a warm welcome amongst ihe Fourierites of Paris and Germany. Mr. Brisbane is the founder of this new movement in this country. About ten years ago he relumed from France and Germany, full of his new notions of social organization, and went to the western part of this State, where, after preaching and talking a good deal, he made a considerable number of converts. About 1836, '37, he came to our office, and wanted very much to convert us. Hut, owing to our unbelief and hardness of heart, he failed; and accordingly left us, to find a more docile pupil in the person of Horace Greeley, who in 1840 was then just starting the Tribune, and who readily yielded his assent to the new faith. Horace and Albert then ran in couples all over the country writing, and talking, and lecturing, and making speeches on the subject. They have certainly been very zealous, and the fruits of their zeal begin to be apparent all over the middle and Eastern States. The first association on the principles of Fourier was commenced, we believe, in New England. There are now in operation in various parts of the the middle and eastern states about twenty associations, comprising three thousund individuals, male and femule, some of the latter being of surpassing loveliness, and many of them but so?so. The capital embraced in these associations is about one million of dollars Preparations are at this moment in progress to organize twenty additional associations, with five thousand inen and women mid two millions of dollars. In western New York, we are informed that (his system of agriculture and society is taken hold of very eagerly, and that nearly 20,000 persons have actually become Fourieriteg. The calculation is, that by the time of the meeting of the next convention, the number of converts in all parts of the country will not fall short of 100,000?which will beat the abolitionists all to pieces. Their first convention was held at Boston last year. The recent one in this city, was reported in this journal, and has been the means of spreading the doctrines and views of the sect very widely. The next convention will be held in October, and probably in this city. This, in brief, presents the history of the rise, progress and present petition of Fourierism in this country. It has been mainly produced by the genius, eloquence and untiring industry of that most devoted disciple of Fourier himself?Albert Brisbane, aided and assisted by that highly distinguished vegetable philosopher, Horace Greeley. Mr. Brisbane's mission to Europe will no doubt advance greatly the cause in which lie is so earnestly engaged, for he is a very worthy and intelligent man, although he is a Fourierite. Fanny Elssler's Journal.?Further extracts from this journal, written by ChevalierWykoff, and repudiated by the " divine Fanny," will be given to-rnotrow in the Herald, it we possibly can get the room. In reference to the recent " addenda" published by the Chevalier in the daily papers, so complimentary to James Gordon Bennett, we have discovered among our papers about fifteen or twenty original letters and memoranda, written by the same genius, which will confirm, in the clearest light, the same opinion ot his character, which was expressed in the recent letter published by Fanny in lAHRden and Paris papers. These curious, unique, antf extraordinary letters, written by the Chevalier himself, will give an insight into his character for truth and veracity, and save us the trouble of any speria' detection. w e Brian exniim to our Delovetl cotemporariee, what sort ot a witness, by his own showing, they have picked up in their vain attempt to injurr our reputation. Poor creatures! New Reform in the City Police.?According to the best uccounts from Albany, we have every reasonable prospect of having the Police of New York reformed at last. It is said that the new bill, organising a corps of 750 Policemen, for day and night, will certainly pass the Legislature. This will be one of the first effects of the. recent revolution. Who will now say a word against the recent triumph of the Reformers 1 None but Thurlow Weed, Horace Greeley, John McKeon,and the small potatoe politicians of both parties. New York Correspondents.?The plan of procuring persons resident in New York to write letteis, seems to be spreading amongst the country papers. Many of these letter-writers appear to be very spiteful and uninformed. But others give very amusing, agreeable and intelligent letters. Of this little class is, one which we copy from that excellent and highly respectable paper?the Charleston Courier. The discription of Mr. Harper, the new Mayor, and other personages in this letter, are correct and pleasantly written. "Who is Lbateseield V'?This important query is, it seems, running the rounds of the newspapers, and every body seems at fault in furnishing a reply. The inquiry originated in conseduence of a "firstrate notice" which appeared in a literary journal in Germany, which represented this Leatesfield as the greatest American author extant, and far superior to Bryant, Irving, or Cooper. This put the litcra/curs terribly in the fidgets, and they have been digging and delving in all sorts of books to discover who Leatesfield is. We believe that all the ingenious speculators who have told us who Leutesfield is, have been altogether wide of the mark. We have intelligence 111/ u IvifA arrival irnm f'nnnti Llanri urltioK rliann. vers the whole secret. Leatesfield is the able President of the Literary and Philosophical Society of Coney Island?governed by Governor Gil D.tvis, in the most economical and liberal way that any territory can possibly he governed. Let this question then remain ut rest for ever. Board ok Aldekmen.?Thin hoard was fully attended IhsI evening by the members elect of the Common Council, who appeared to take much interest in the proceedings, as instructive in their new vocations. The subject of municipal reform was again introduced by resolution?but action, action, action, is as far distant as it was at the commencement of the year. The new members must attend regularly, and thus learn to do what lias been left undone. Economise your Croton Water.?Economise your Croton water during the next fortnight. For that |?eriod of time, the Croton river will be let off in order to allow an examination to be made ol the aqueduct. The whole supply of the city, to extinguish fires and all purposes, must come from the quantity now in the reservoirs. Don't use your street washers. See the notice in our advertising columns Printer's Prices and Bio _a body of printers met in the Park yesterday, and fired off 100 guns, by way of rejoicing that they |)ad obtained an advance of wages Iroin all the employers o( New York, except two?the highly respectable. fat rats of the Journal of Commerce and the Daily Express. The best and most industrious portion of the printers generally take these things in silence It it much the better way.

Conoress IIall, Albany, > Monday, April 15. $ James G. Bennett, Ksq ? Dear Sir:? The thermometer stands at 90 in the sun. and t the grass in front of the capital looks as luxurious as if the earth's axis had rolled us into the middle of May, insteud of April. The Legislature is most uctively engaged in the prosecution of the public business, meeting as early as nine o'clock in the morning, remaining in session until time for din-j ner, and then closing the day with a second session, that oftentimes lasts till midnight. The delegation from your city stand in a more favorable position with the country members than any that has preceded it for years past, and almost every measure relative to your commercial emporium, that meets their favor, receives the concur-1 rence of their country friends. This is the right j spirit, and long may it continue to exist. Delegations arrived from your city on Saturday, ! in favor of, and opposed to the passage of the Police Bill, prepared by his Honor Mayor Morris. The opposition, us your readers are well aware, was a committee appointed by the meeting of Native Americans, held in the Park, in your city, on Thursday last. They met with but little favor, as both parties here view the proscriptive principles that form the basis of their action with great distrust. The committee had imbibed much of the intolerant spirit exhibited by several of their speakers in the Park, and had commenced operations upon the Legislature in that tone, which would have proved entirely fatal to their wishes, had not the conservative and wise advice of Charles Henry H.ill, their recent candidate for Alderman of the Twelfth Ward (who happened to he here on other business), changed their mode o! action. 1 Ite legislative delegation trom your city met together on Saturday evening, to consult upon tin* police bill, and invited the Mayor, Alderman Waterman, and several other gentlemen from your city, to advise with them. The bill went through a pertect revision, received several unimportant alterations, hut no final decision was obtained. Richurd S. Williams, Esq., the whig representative Irom your city, highly approved ol the bill in all its provisions, except the conferring ol tlie appointing power upon the present Common Council. Messrs. Bosworth und Glazier, of the democratic side of the house, interposed several objections to its passage, which were instantly replied to with unanswerable arguments front those who were friendly to its adoption. The reasonable presumption, therefore, is, that the city delegation will, with the exception of Mr. Williams, conclude to report the hill on Tuesday, with two or three amendments: the first, giving the powerof nomination of the officeta to the Alderman, Assistant and Asssessors of each ward, and the appointment to the Mayor without granting htm the privilege of refusing to appoint, hut if objecting to confer with the nominees, leaving their decision to be final. This will give the whig members of the Common Council a ratio of representation in the appointments from the first, second, third, fourteenth and fifteenth wards, which would secure the selection of their best and most capable men to places in the new police department. The term of appointment will probaL ly be changed to one or two years only, and not extend to four as the bill now provides; and the salary, which is only $450 per annum, will be increased. The committee from the American Republican Meeting have approved of all the provisions ol the bill, except giving the appointment to 'he present Common Council, while the advocates of the bill us it stands, contend that the principle on which the appointments of the native party are based, will entirely exclude the selection of many capable, honest and ex|?erienced old officers whose services would thus he lost to the community, merely because tliey are adopted citizens. Another argument advanced in favor of action by the Legislature is, that the people have loudly demanded a radical change in the principles of the present police svstem, which must receive legislative sanction before put in operation, and if no change intade, the result will be that the city will he left lot another year in the same unguarded and unprotected state 11s at present, and another hue and cry raised nr*l lull to elect thirteen renresenluiives to the le gislnture lo advocate police reform. Should no action take place, and the Common Councilcoming into power he imprudent enough to remove tnmn of the present olhcurs, without distinction as tc their ability, experience and honesty, merely because they are not native boin, the thieves, rogue;and burglar.- of your city would have a yeur's harvest before new men would be enabled to learn the haunts of rogues, their practices, and their vocation. As the bill is a good one. it should be adopted, and if a portion ol the present olficers of the police could he retained under it. in prominent positions, it is of little matter to the public at large who receives the appointing power of the remainder. Quite a movement is making here in favor ol the nomination of Michael Hoffman, of Herkimer, as the democratic candidate for Governor. Governor Bouck is a candidate for re-election, and his friends are active and industrious. I will give you an in sight into the behind-the-curtain movements in tnj next letter. Summer Weather.?Sunday and yesterday wen very warm and o|>eii tlays. Trees in all parts ol the city and vicinity are leafing out. and buds are blossoming. White pants and chip hats are also seen. To-day we shall probably have a change to colder weather again. Hobokkn.?Talk of the Musselman's Paradise? we New Yorkers can beat it all to pieces. Just cross the ferry to Hoboken. This delightful place is more delightful than ever. The boats have been repaired and put in beautiful condition?the shady walks are more attractive than ever?and everything invites the citizen weary of dusty streets and the eternal brick work.

CH jr Intelligence. Aitni or MiPtiu Rutill, and Di.ath or a Young ' and buai'tirul (inn. from Abortion.?On Sunday evening about eight o'clock, Cornier Raw son was informed by Dr James Sweeney, that a joung and beautiful girl, J ? eged ubo'it IS years, named Eliza Ann Munson. a native ; of New Haven, of respectable connexion*, was dying at r 18 Oliver itreet, from the effects of abortion, produced by 1 ^ the handa of Madame 1 test ell. in December laat. The t Coroner with Justice Merritt, immediately repaired to the house, and there found the unfortunate girl in a dying j j atate. He immediately proceeded to bold an antt mortnn t examination, and summoned a jury for that purpose, j ? The dying girl testified that she had been seduced in New ( Haven, kv a man named James F ratter. of Plainfield, New j ? Jersey, and after being roc?>fi/e uliout six weeks, was in* duced to tepair to this city anil apply to Muilame lleitell to procure abortion This was effected, but in such a manner, that her health began rapidly to decline, and she repaired to the house where she was then dying to pro cure medical aid to restore her. She was faithfully at tended by Dr. Sweeney, but his skill proving unsuccessful, and ner body wasting to a mere skeleton, he conceived it his duty to make the facts public to the t'oroner During the examination she became much exhausted, but was restored at times, by stimulants given her by directions of the physicians in attendance, lu the meantime, the Coroner had despatched a subpouna in the hands of Richard White, F.sq , of the New V'oik press, mid late Deputy Coroner Milliken, to compel the appearance ol Madame Ri-stell, as a witness in the case, and to conIront the dying girl, They repaired to her house in Greenwich street, uml toiind her in company with seveial females. The notice of subpoena was made, but she retu-ed to obey its command and fled from the house The importance of her presence in order that the girl might recognize her as the person who had performed the operation to procure abortion being apnarent to the coroner, he ordered officers Brown and Ituckle to proceed in search of her and urrest her on a warrant. They repaired to her residence in Greenwich street, at a late hour at night, and found Mr. Lohman, her husband, and several females, who appeared to be patients boarding in the house. Alter considerable delay and lesort to persuasion and threats, the girls disclosed her place of reluge, and Loliman consented to go with the officers and point it out They proceeded to a house in Varick street, nsur Spring, where Madame Rested was found in bed The otlicers arrested her, took her back to her residence, and then direeled two of the women in the house to dress themselves ami their hair iu a similar manner to that worn by Madame Res'i II, which, being done, they proceeded in a cab under 1 he charge ot the officers to the house where the girl was dying. The t'iree women, including liestell, were then placed before her and the question asked by the coroner?"Which one of the three was it that produced the abortion 7" She raised her dying frame, gave an eager, earnest look at each of the females before lier. and then, pointing to Restell with her almost fleshlcss, attenuated linger, said?" That is her? thire." and sunk bnek upon her pillow. The testimony of this murdered giil j was then read to her in presence of the accused and her signature placed thereon. This was about two o'clock yesterday inoining She continued to sink lower and lower, when death relieved her acute and dreadful sufferings, at about 4 o'cloek in the morning. She was attended until the last breath had passed from her body by gi ve- I ral physicians and Mr. Gallendar, one of the clerks ol po c lice, who rendered her everv kindness. Several othei witnesse* were examined who e?nobated a portion of the stutrmrnt? of the deceasi-d, and Madame Restell wiui tlien comuiitted by the Coroner to the city prison to await tin l result of the Coroner's inquest. The jury then adjourned 1 to 7 o'clock yesterday afternoon, in order .to hear the re I port of Dr?.Oilman and Archer, who were selected hy the i Coroner to rnalte a post mortem examination of the body of , deceased c The body was removed yesterday, about midday, to the i Dead House in the Park, and Professor Gilman and Dr Archer, the late Coroner, made a posr mortem examine t tion at 3 o'clock. The evidence in respect to the post mor- < /em examination was deferred till Tuesday, but the ante < mortem examination which was not finished when the un- 1 fortunate girl breathed her last, was resumed by the girlV i testimony being read to the jury. Madame Restell, was i as a matter of course, present with her counsel, Mr. A L t Jordan. Mr. Jordan protested against the proceedings of ' the previous evening, in as much as Madame Restell had t not the benefit of counsel. The Coroner stated that the only matter for the jury at present summoned by him was ] to pass on the matter as per evidence before them t Mr. Jordan objected to the case going before them in | tho present shape; anil offered to show that the illness , that produced or caused the death, was not occasioned b; any violence at the hnnds of Madame Restnll. Objected ' to by the Coroner, and he desired the jury to retire to ( consider their verdict. Mr. Jordan also offered to prove that the violence was j done by another party than Madame Restall, and not by , her agency. Tho jury wished more testimony, without which the; , -dated they could render no verdict, viz.: that of the phy sician, Sec., and were, therefore, discharged. A new jury will be summoned to morrow for the pot' mortem inquest, anil in the meantime Madame Resteli stands committed. 1 Officers Ruck el and Brown have acquitted themselves ' extremely well in this business. ' tThentrlcnl. Panic Theatre.?Last night commenced Mr Booth's engagement, which we arc sorry to say, i ( limited to five nights only. Richard the Third wat the piny selected for the opening of this engage ment, Mr. Booth taking the part of Richard. It the present instance, we do not think the play en acted has much reason to suffer by comparison between the nctor we have just seen, and others win have attained a well-merited celebrity. Mr. Boot! is evidently n powerful and judicious actor, anr1 judgment is almost all the battle in a dramatic en gagement. Faulty he undoubtedly is in a few in stances, for example when the messenger an nounces to Gloster his brother's illness; there is not sufficient entitling or easiness of dissimulation displayed?the fault-finding perhaps arises from tin rememhrnnce pf Kean in the passage in question This and a few other little defects are, however, amply made up by true and admirable acting in tin scene between Gloster and Lady Anne, us wel as in the soliloquy after she leaves him, when flattered hy what she has said to him, and pleased will himself for the conquest gained over her, he loses sight til his deformities, and is willing to fane; himself an Adonis. There are other traits of ex cellent acting which space will not allow us to detail. To-morrow night. Mr. Booth plays Sir Giles Overreach ; and there is also a new extravaganza, cuti fled " Fortunio." Olympic Theatre.?As usual, this temple of fun and amusement was crowded last night?the amount of temperature being high in proportion The Dead Shot : the everlasting Marriage ofFiga ro, and the Alpine Maid were the pieces for the evening. We cull the Marriage of Figaro ever lasting; for it has been playetl so often that tin public begin to weary of it, particularly on these hot nights, when fresh excitement is needed. We are most happv to be able to state, on the authority of Mr. Mitchell himself, that lie has taken Niblo's Theatre for the Summer season, where lie intends to astonish the natives hy new and unheard of wonders. The public are not to expect a May movement on the part of the Olympic?that will not uptownize ; hut the good of that Theatre?and we all know how much good it contains?will migrate, and blend with other congenial spirits hereafter to be named. Bravo, Mitchell ?Mnrtt virtute e&to. Chatham.?The plav-bill of this theatre is headed "unrivalled attraction." and attraction enough there was last night. The "Hunchback" and " His Last Legs" were the pieces of the evening We only saw a part of the former, and were pleased, particularly with the acting of Miss Reynolds. who. we think, should have taken the part ol Julia, instead of Mrs. McClure. It seemed to ua that a strange interpolation had suddenly crept into the text of the "Hur chback," for, in one ol the moat pathetic parts, viz: the scene between Julia and Sir Thomas Clifford, immediately before the marriage of the former, when she ndc'res sea him in the words, "Clifford, i? it you J" a stage whisper of "be quiet," echoed to our ears us the reply, followed by an address from Mr. Connor, to the effect that what was said on the stage could not be heard in the house on account of the noise in the gallery. This was well enough ; but the same voice went on to say that its owner had written lately to Philadelphia, to some friends, in order to tell iliem of the quiet and twivitir tnmoilo behavior of the Chatham audience, and that now ihe said individual was sorely disappointed. Noise enough there was, it is true, hut a more convenient season, for the hearing such rebuke, we thiuk might have been chosen. Thkatrical ano Musical Oossir.?Brougham tnd Miss Nelson are performing, with much success, as we hear, at Natchez; and Vteuxtemps and Ilia sister are also in the same place delighting the susceptible ears of the Southerners by their delicious harmony of sweet sounds. Marble andCowell are playing at Baltimore; and Harry Placide, that concentration of comedians, has, by this tune, brought the might of his mind to hear on the same spot. Happy Baltimore! Kussell is singing, swanlike, though we trust without the same fate, at Louisville, Ky. The Western natives have every reason to rejoice in the favored individual. We are sorry to sec an account in the Philadelphia papers of a serious accident which has befallen Mrs. Seguin, and has, in consequence, caused the postponement of the new opera at the Chesnnt. It seems that during the rehearsalon Friday last, Mrs. Seguin incautiously stepped upon one of the trap doors of the stage, which being imperfectly secured, gave way, and received her foot and part of the leg through the aperture. The unfortunate limb stiffen <1 most severely by the slip, end we are very sorry that so nntintely^p fnux pan should have occasioned any painful result from the placing so pretty a foot in it.

The state of the principal Cotton Markets of this country, at the present time is very curious and important.? The advices from Kurope, down to the middle of March, atimeinthe season when the manufacturers should lie most actively engaged, tell us that the markets were very inactive, and prices with difficulty sustained. The season should have reached its greatest activity by the middle of March. Orders for goods manufactured of cotton Irom this country are usually filled before that time.? The new crop from this country is usually in the markets and the business of the year in this staple usually settled and prices established. We can look for the next steam ship in a few days, with intelligence down to the 4th inst. The advices by this conveyance will probably give us more decided information in relation to the future tone of the market, and the probable position of prices. In the meantime the movements going on in our local markets are of interest, as they have an influence on those of Kurope, which we sliull perceive nt a later date in the season.
