NEW YORK HERALD. Kew York, Friday, October 44, 1S48. THE IMPORTANT DISCOVERY AT THE WEST. THE GREAT SOUH PASS. The IVttkli/ Herald of this week will contain lour spirited engravings of views on the Rocky Moun tame, illustrative of the Great Expedition of Captain Fremont. That of the Wind River Mountains is particularly interesting as the South Pass, the Great Road to Oregon, and thePacitic lies on their South ern edge. These splendid engravings are accom' panied by a description of each and of the peculiari ties of the Pass. The Exprcleil Cabinet Kxploslon. There seems to be a general expectation in the I public mind, judging from the newspaper press, that 1 the present Cabinet of Mr. Polk, cannot long remain without an explosion and recoinposition of some kind. It is very true that the organ of the President at Washington, affects to be very positive and very certain that no President and Cabinet ever lived to gether in such harmony as the preseut. But the very violent denunciations which proceed lrom the organ relative to the rumors of disunion and explosion, ra ther tend to produce a conviction contrary to that anticipated and desired. Every rational mind is, indeed,persuaded that there exists some irresoncile able differences of opinion between the President and members of his Cabinet. It is now generally believed that there is-a difference between the Pre sident and a portion of his Cabinet, not only on the tariff, but also on the Oregon question,and that those who differ from him are Mr Buchanan, Mr. Marcy nnd Mr. Bancroft, the others siding with him. It is very evident, from the movements of a certain por tion of the democratic party in Pennsylvania, in re- I lation to the tariff, that Mr. Buchanan's friends, if they are guided by his opinions, are very hostile to the present position of the administration. Notwithstanding all that the H'athington Union may say to the contrary, we are prepared to see a I reconstruction of the Cabinent before six months have elapsed. Will the organ positively that such a thing will not take place 1 The Magnetic Telegraph.?The establishment of magnetic telegraphs radiating from New York te the East, West and ?>outh, to the extent ot three or four hundred miles, so as to connect all the large cities of the Atlantic border with this metropolis, is now in a rapid slate of progress. The line between tins and Bull-do is under weigh, and so also is the one to Boston, so likewise that between this city and Washington, including all the intermediate points. There is also a line commenced between this city and Coney Island. All these lines are con ducted by associations of individuals who derive their powers from the inventor, Professor Morse, now in Europe It is suppose that the whole of them will be finished in the course of three or four months; and that the principal line between this c.ty and Washington will be completed in time to transmit the next message of the President to this city and to enable the publishers to issue it simulta neously with the Washington papers. When completed, these united lines ol telegraphic communication will embrace a territory ol nearly five hundred miles from south to north, and from east to west?including within its ramifications the Metropolis, Washington, Buffalo, Boston, with all the intermediate cities, as parts of the grand scheme of communication. Such a system of telegraphic communication of all descriptions of news,will make the great Atlantic cities suburbs of this Metropolis, and all animated by the same spirit and the same impulses, numbering, probably, a population of near ly two millions of the most active, talented, intellec. tual, impulsive, and most energetic business-men on the face ot the earth. It will not be forgotten that t his vast and comprehensive scheme of telegra phic cemmunicationjwdl be completed in the course of a few months, and be in the hands of individuals for their own advantage and purposes, without any responsibility to government or society in any par ticular whatever. LOne of the lines of telegraph, and the shortest and most unproductive, that between this city and Coney Island, has already made pro positions to the newspapers, offering to give them intelligence of ship news and other marine matters ?t the rate of $50 per week?a sum nearly double that which is now paid under the old method. This is a sample of what may be expected from the other companies and associations, provided they should be allowed to establish their vast and comprehensive schemes without being liable and resjionsible to any of the legislative powers of the country. In fact, we believe that the magnetic telegraph is going to produce a greater change in some the social institutions of the country than any one now ima gines. We do believe that it will supersede en tirely the Post Office Department, and destroy the necessity and utility of transmitting news either public or private through the mails. The subject ought,therefore,|to be immediately taken up by Con gress at the beginning of the next session. The whole scheme of magnetic telegraphs throughout the country, connecting every important city and town, should be a public affair, transferred to the Post Office Department, and subjected to the imme diate control.of the government, acting for the peo pie. An affair of this vast magnitude and unlimited power can never safely be permitted to remain in the hands of private individuals, or private associa tions. And we do not believe it to be at all possible that individuals or associations will be able to con duct these lines with satisfaction and full justice to the public. It must be a public atfair?belong to the general government, and controlled by the people through their representatives. The sooner the sub ject be taken up by the next Congress, the better for the whole country. Trouble in the Bartist Church.?We see th the Babtists are not without their troubles. T Presbyterians have had their troubles?the Episc pilians have had their troubles?the Methodu have had their troubles?and naw the unoff'endii Baptists must go through the mill. An annount mem has been published, calling an extra gene: convention of the Baptist church, to meet in t Baptist Tabernacle in this city, in a short time. This is probably with the view of bringing aboul separation ol the Baptists ol the South and the Be lists of the North, on the question ol slavery. Wh< the priests and the clergy takeup the. subject of slat ry, and makejt a peg on which to hang their qui Eels, jiolitieianB and other sensible |ieople will cut We therefore argue, from this sign of the tunes, tf the nation at large is going to let slavery alone I some time to come. Ijovrr's Quarrel.?What is the matter l?etw the Rev. David Hale of this city, and the very 1 Thurlow Weed, of Albany 1 Whenever these worthies have a chance, they are cutting and h! ing at each other, as if they belonged to diffe parties, or different religions, or different class* animals. David Hale finds fault with the hui beggars going about from door to door in this i and introducing the bad customs of Europe in begging business. Thurlow Weed rates David 1 severely for his reiusing a pittance to the poor I gars?doubts his religion and honesty?nnd cast his teeth the statement that he, David, was om beggar himself, and went about from respecti house to respectable house, asking donations to tablish the Journal of Commrrct. Cannst these worthy saints live in amity I Will not Bishop Hun interiiose between the belligerents and restore pe to the world 1 Their quarrels and jealousies bad feeling give us a great deal of concern. Railroad in Hudson street ?There is a deal of talk on tins subject, but we presume it all end in talk with a great rnnny other schemes Templeton and Dk Mkykr?A Comparison.?At this moment our city rejoices in the presence of two artists, the most distinguished, in their . respective departments, that the world?the new world?has ever boasted. Need we say we allude to Temple ton and De Meyer 1 who, since their arrival here, have experienced a reception altogether unparallel ed, and second only to their merits. Between the characteristics of these unique performers, there prevails a marked distinction ; and we speak first of Templeton as being first in the field. Nothing has ever struck us with greater surprise than the mar vellous combination which exists in Templeton, of the actor, orator, and vocalist. He is truly, in the words of Dryden? "A man 10 various, that he seems to be Notions, but all mankind's epitome." And we are led to ask, not what Templeton can, but what he cannot do. Our language has not a word that can characterise his voice. It is an organ of a hundred stops, which, from the breathing of the flute, can swell to the blast of the trumpet. Milton must have imagined a Templeton, when he so ex quisitely wrote? "With wanton hssd, and giddy cunning, The melting voice through mazes running, Untwisting all the chain* that tie The hidden soul of harmony." During Templeton's last sojourn in Paris, his voice and style, now fully developed, created the utmost astonishment in the great masters of the Conserva toire?among others, Auber, Bordagni, Garcia and Duprez. " Man Dieu exclaimed they, " what a sui?erb voice; the finest in the world \?Mwbleau He is Rubini and Donizetti in one. He should have been an Italian !" De Meyer is the greatest artist on the piano that the world knows?his crash is like the bursting of 'he infernal doors, in Milton, That from their hinges grate Deep thunder He is tremendous and confounds the senses, while his softer passages affects the feelings to the deepest intensity. De Meyer astounds the ear?Templeton captivates the heart. The one is a wonder, the other a delight?De Meyer gains our reverence, Temple ton wins our love! De Meyer deals in the sublime?Templeton in the beautiful?the latter resembles the beautiful,love ly, brilliant Ohio river Mowing softly from the Alle gany mountains?the former one, the mighty, crash ing Missouri, thundering from the Rocky Moun tains, and both blending their streams in (he won derful Mississippi?the great community of New York De Meyer is the terrible and beautiful Nia gara Falls?Teniplston, the same waters meandering through the Thousand Isles, lull of grace, beauty and picturesqueness. Try a night with each. Expedition to California.?It will be recollect ed that we published lrom a Western paper, the other day, a statement that General James Arling ton Bennet, of Long Island, was on his way to N'auvoo, to take under his charge the whole of the Mormon church which was about to emigrate, as was supposed, to California. Arlington Bennet has a very fine estate and splen did country house on Long Island, near the Nar rows, and we suppose, that being for many years in that quiet retreat, he has matured his plans for some grand expedition that will outstrip even that of Moses when he carried the Israelites out of Egypt, across the Red Sea,through the wilderness and into the land of Canaan. The Mormons certainly want a comprehensive, philosophical, religious, energetic, brave and talented leader. We recommend Arling ton Bennet to their particular notice, and advise them at once to range themselves under his standard ?pass over the deserts of Missouri, over the Rocky Mountains and down to California, and then encamp on the Sacramento river, or some other beautiful sunny place, as near the harbor of San Francisco as possible. A population of twenty or thirty thou sand men?Mormons?under the command of Ar lington Bennet, would make California a part of the United States in less than two years. We are in iavor, therefore, of this expedition and of the ultimate annexation of California to the I United States. Recent Elections ?The elections recently held in Maryland, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio, and, per haps, other Sta'es, possess some peculiar character istics. The two parties came into the field as usual, but there is a sad falling ofl in the aggregate votes of both in every one of these elections. In Maryland the Whigs generally staid at home, and gave the more active Locofocos a victory. Yet the result was supposed to be favorable to a modifi cation of the Tariff and to a full liquidation of 'he State debt. In Georgia, on the contrary, the whigs appear to have gained the victory, but princi imlly produced by a number of the locofocos backing oat from their former associations and voting for the whigs. In Tennessee, the locofocos carried the day, caused chiefly by the accession of Mr. Polk to the Presidency and the belief that Tennessee ought to support the party which carried their man into the White House. In Ohio, the locofocos were de feated, and the whigs gained a great victory in con sequence of a certain portion of the locofocos going in favor of banks, abandoning their own party and voting for the whigs. The general result of these elections is, however, so nicely balanced between the two parties, as an indication of future events, that they stand pretty nearly in the same position as they did before. Theie is a great want of feeling in all these mutters throughout the country, nor do we believe that there will be much political effervescence until the nex1 presidential election comes on the carpet. Racing Steamboats on the Hudson.?We are very much concerned to see that the two new boats, the "Hendrik Hudson" and the "Oregon," are pitted against each other as racers on the Hudson, and that this practice is countenanced by the comman ders and managers. These boats ate both splendid, and either of them goes fast enough in all conscience to satisfy reasonable men, nor is there any necessity to crowd steam upon them, or to try their B|>eed in order to satisfy the public of their capabilities and velocity. It is a dangerous practice, this racing, and one that should be immediately abandoned. If persisted in, the excitement may increase until an explosion takes place, many valuable lives be de stroyed, and a general sentiment of horror and dis. satisfaction pervade the public mind. Dr. Reese.?It will be observed that Dr. Reese was removed last evening, by the Board of .Supervisors, from the office of County Superinten dent, by a vote of II to ft. We refer to thcproceod ^gs under its proper head New York Census.?The returns from forty counties give a |>opulation of 2,121,806, an increase of 166,618 since 1840.

I.?Thiid Dat~Thuiodav?Yesterday w?l appointed for the (joining off of the groat four mile match of thia moating, between Fashion and Liatunah. The attondanco waa very limited indeed, although the weather waa much more favorable for aport, and milder than either of the previout daya. At the hour appointed for bringing up the hortee, one o'clock, we counted on the club stand and apace beneath between thirty and forty individuals, on the dollar stand between sixty and seventy; in the open space in the centre about ten or a dozen vehicles of different kinds, and 100 to Iff) persons; in the field stand not a single person. Theso numbers were somewhat increased iu about half an hour afterwards, but princi pally by parties who obtained entrance by other means than payment, still we have often observed a much greater attendance at trotting matches for much less sums, and with much less pretensions. About half past one o'clock the horses for the principal race were brought on the ground. They stripped well and appeared in first rate condition; Liatunah showed evidence ofconsiderable improvement since last spring being very much like Fashion in several respects only not quite so large; both are beautiful creatures, aud had each their admirers, but Fashion was the decided favorite at long odds; 100 to 30 was freely offered, 100 to ?36 taken freely afterwards. J.

They kept about two lengths apart round the top, but rather slow; rom the three quarter pole to the drawgate, Barney lessened the apace between them; but Fashion cami home about two-thirds of a length in front at the end of the first mile, in about lm. 58?. On the second mile they kept thus to the turn on the straight side, where the space was rather more open. Fashion was a length cl0<? of this mile in about 3m. 54s. I* or the third mile, the apace wan rather greater between them up the back stretch,' but from the drawgate to the Judge's stand the space had been so much decreased between them, that Fash ion was not more than half a length in front, in about lm. 65s Now came the tug for the first heat. Barney l was evidently biding his time, to appearance keeping 1 hismare in under a very tight rein. Near the half mile Fashion increased her speed considerably, and opened the space a trifle between her and Liatunah. Hound the top a beautiful race took place. Alter passing the three quarter pole the struggle commenced in earnest, and at i the drawgate they were not more than half a length apart Here Joe Laird applied his whip pretty freely, and as they neared the distance chain, Barney applied his spurs equally so, but not with success, for Fashion i Sf aTI'i0"8 Jhre!.?r four reet in front, completing I tor the^fourmilesTmMii'a am ?reat cht?r'?* Total .

Park Theatre.?Last evening Mr. Murdock appaarad in tha character of "Othollo." Ho vu received by hi* friend* with e food deal of applause. There U evidence, however, of e difference of opinion amongst the critic* relative tohi* merit*, and a controversy i* breaking out in conversation, which will probably show itself also in the columns of the journals in a short time. The friends of Mr. Murdoch, from the iutensity of their good feeling, may curry things so far us to create a controversy rela tive to the existence of his talent. Such a thing ought to he avoided. Mr. Murdook has the element* of a good actor. Whether ho will ever be a great actor remains to he seen, after be shall have gono through the full pro cess of study, practise, and many years of severe toil. Leopold de Meyer appears to-night. Temh-itois's Entertainments.?Templeton introdu ced us onWednesday evening to SirWalter Scott Never did tho "Harp of the North" ring in more astonished or delighted ears. The soul of Sir Walter Scott seemed to burn in every bosom?so contagious is genius. Of the vocul illustrations, nothing that we could say would b* too much. "Jock of Hazoldean" drew forth rapturou applause. " Where ,hall the lover rest" was given in a style which thrilled every listener. But in "The Last Words of Mannion" the performer seemed to excel him' self. Here is, indeed, a piece to try a singer. Requiring, us it dees, a voice of stupendous compass, the most deli cate modulation, and the most appalling energy,?this graud scena seemed composed for Templeton alone. But I if his musical declamation enraptured the audience, not less so did his powerlul recitation of the glorious lines, "Breathes there a man with soul so dead 7" Templeton is sublime-a musical Demosthenes. "All is lost," which proved that "All was won," last Friday, burst forth again in all its splendor. The words of Ariel in Snakspeare, are Templeton'* own? "Bid me discourse, I will enchant thine ear." And never was music more eloquently discoursed than in the charming romance "Young Lochinvar?wedded, as it is, to a characteristic martial air, the second part of which is exceedingly graceful, while the whole is strict ly origiual and sparkling. This favorite, to gether with the exquisite warbling song, "'Twos Merry, 'twas merry in Faiiy Laud," still unpublished, is, we un derstand, of Mr. Templeton's own creation. Notwith standing the immense attraction of M- de Meyer at the I'ark, the house prcsonted its usually crowded appear ance. At the conclusion of the entertainment Mr. Tern pletoii announced that on Friday evening he would have the honor of again appearing before the public in an ori giuul entertainment founded on the history of the unfor tunnte and beautiful Mary Queen of Scots. The an nouncement was received with much applause. Bowery Theatre.?Mr. Davenport, a very worthy member of the company, at this theatro, takes his bene nt to-night, and he presents a most interesting bill, con sisting of" The Black Hangers," " Merchant of Venice," "Tho Blood Hounds," and " F.very Body's Mess." Wo trust this young actor will have a crowded house. The last time his name was put up for a benefit the house was unfortunately burned down, and he was consequent ly deprived of it. Let him have a double one this time. The Alhambra.?The Ethiopian company draws well at this house, and we think it will prove a lucky hit for the managers. An eveniug can certainly be spent hore with a great deal of pleasure; to-night they give the burlesque of " Shln-de-Ileel-a." Brooklyn Intelligence. The Navy Yaed.?Even ^amongst the molt ardent friends of the present administration, thero are murmur ines, both loua and deep, in relation to the allegod mis behavior of those who now have control of many of the workshops in the Navy Yard. Corruption the most gla ring, and favoritism the most corrupt, are openly and boldly charged ngaiust certain political leaders who hold a snug and comfortable (though uncertain) tenure in this great mart for the manufacture of" free and independent voters." Well indeed would it be lor the gei.eral gov ernment, could some plan bo adopted whereby " good meu and true"?the eminently meritorious and really deserving?should become the only depositories of pub lic faith, and recipients of public favor, instead of a horde of unprincipled and heartless fellows, whose en tire merit is in their demogogueism, ami whose title to preferment nnd distinction consists In their superior trickery and recklessness at election polls. Important Arrests.?It was reported in the Herald, a few weeks ago, that the dry goods store of Mesdames Martin, No. 188$ Fulton street, had beer, burglariously entered, and robbed of property amounting to upwards of two hundred dollars in value. The adjoining premi ses, occupied by Mr. Cornell, at the corner of Clark and Fulton streets, were also broken open, on the same night, and stripped of various articles, including thirty or forty dollars in cash. Although every possible effort was made by the officers of Brooklyn to obtains cluo to the apprehension of these depredators, they could not he found until last evening, when, through information given by Mr. Phillips, ?"hies of the Police of Troy, Messrs. Bird and Felt, of Brooklyn, arrested three men who, at present, are only known by the cognomens of Uritton, John Smith, and " Sore Kyed Bill," and who are supposed to have been concerned in the above mention ed burglaries. Theso persons have heretofore beon en gaged in an apparently industrious occupation, us lock smiths. in Court street, and had never been suspected by the public authorities, as otherwise than honest, worthy and reputable. It appears, however, that on Saturday last a small, pock marked man, calling himself Richard Roberts, was taken into custody at Mechanicsville, (about 16 miles from Troy) by Constable Harris, in con sequence of offering for sale certain silks, calicos, caps, laces, Ike., at prices infinitely below their real cost, Mr. Harris (acting as a shrewd and cunning man should do) immediately posted off to bis brother officer at Rensse laer county, and the latter, having seen an account in the Herald of the Brooklyn robbery, forthwith came hither, bringing with him the goods which he believed to have been stolen. They were immediately identified as part of the property taken from Miss Martin's store, and the efficient services ot Bird and Kelt were called into instant requisition, for the purpose of discovering the companions of Roberts. The result was the capture of the individuals named, and their committal to the county jail, to await an examination. Smith was taken from his dwelling, at the corner of Pacific and Boerum streets, and Brittonfrom the corner of Smith and Bergen streets, (over Duffs bakery.) The other prisoner was arrested at the locksmith's shop, in Court st. Race Course Robberies.?Last evening officers Clay ton, Bird, and Felt, made a sortie upon a gang of scoun drels who had been successfully operating upon certain verdant individuals at the race course, through the sinis termagic ofthimble rig. One young gentleman was di vested by the sharpers of a gold watch and chain ; and an engineer in the employ of the Long Island railroad company, was green enough to permit himself to be quietly relieved of $1-V Had the authorities of Queens county (in which the Union Course is situated) heon courageous, bold, and resolute, as the officers of Kings, the vagahondt who, yesterday, made s* good a harvest, would not have easily got away with their culpably ob tained booty. How is it I?'The Mayor issued a proclamation that all hogs found in tlio streets after the 19th inst would be impounded. The lHlh has passed, and there are as ma ny hogs running at large as ever. It was promised that efficient measures would be takeu to abate the nuisance. This most certainly lias not been done, and we should like to know whose duty it is, by the new arrangements, to arrest the ]>orkers. A Citt Hospital.?It is rumored that Captain liebard of the packet ship Quebec, has given twenty thousand dollars towards the establishment ol a city hospital in Brooklyn, upon the condition that the whole interest shall be paid during his life, and one half during that of his mother, if heralready advanced age he extended be yond hia own. Auoustvs Graham, Esq., whose liberal ity towards the Brooklyn Institute is generally known, has also furnished the Hnsnital with FA.OOO, on similar conditions. A meeting of the citizen* is called for Moil day evening next, to endeavor to raise funds to the amount of f>lft,000 for purchasing grounds in an appro priate location lor the Institution. Discovery of More Ancient Plates.?All hum bugs on the Hiibject of old plates did not die with foe Smith, for alreaJy a fresh plate digger and transla tor has arisen By a letter lrom a very respectable source, we are informed that some brass plato* bearing marks of antutuity have recently been brought to light in Burlington, Wisconsin. The circumstances aro stat o 1 to be these : it ap|>ear* that a certain man who bus for some time past believed himself inspired, had it revealed to hino, that by digging under a certain tree he would tind a vessel containing plates with inscriptions relative to the aborigines of this country. He accordingly se lected threo of his neighbors to dig in the appointed place, who, (as they affirm,) after carefully examining the ground, to lie sure that it had not been disturbed, dug to the depth of several feet, and found at last the said vessel, winch, lifter being exnoscd to the air, crum bled to pieces, exposing throe plates ef brass, covered with characters, the moaning of which they were entire ly ignuiant of, hut which the prophet has since transla ted The language, lrom the translation, purports to bo that of a king or chief describing the destruction of his whole people, and the places where they perished. Be veral persons have been to see the prophet, and many of them, a'ter seeing the plates, believe them genuine.? Cleveland Herald.
