NEW YORK HERALD. wv York, W?is?M<Bjr, Mmmnber *o, in4?. Piiiyrrim of (lit- .Mlmlonary Enterprise? StucrrM In Convening the Heathen. We published, Jufct week, lull reports ot the pro ceedings of tin- Baptist General Convention for Foreign Mi-si one, which arsetr.bled in the Mul berry street Tabernacle This body consists of the northern branch of the Baptist Triennial Conven tion, which held its last meeting in Philadelphia, in April, 1*44, and adjourned to meet at Cincinnati, in April, 1S47. The southern portion of the Conven tion, it will be remembered, seceded about a year since, in consequence of a circular published, by the acting board, dated at Boston, in reply to certain questions, propounded by the Alabama Baptist Convention, relative to slavery The acting board declared they would not, on any consideration, ap point a slaveholder as a missionary. In conse quence of this statement, the southern members withdrew, and formed a missionary convention ot their own The northern branch, therefore, called a special meeting, and adopted a new constitution, changing their name from that of "Baptist General Convention," to that of "American Baptist Mis sionary Union." There are some very curious and funny things about this constitution. The " Union" is to be composed entirely of " lite members," and any ;erson, whether a Jew, Turk, or Christian?Unita rian, Universalis!, Infidel, or Catholic, may become members on payment of one hundred dollars. The Chairman proclaimed the object of this arrange ment to be the collection of dollars?the larger amount ol money, he remarked, could be collected by this means. Every member represents one hundred dollars, and has one vote. An application is to be made to the Legislature of Massachusetts for an act ot incorporation: and when a charter is obtained, a great extension of missionary effort maybe expected. Attempts will, undoubtedly, be made to evangelize and Christianize the whole world?including this hitherto much neglected por tion of creation, called New York. Meanwhile, the Southern convention are extending their opera tions and usefulness. The American Board ot Commissioners?the Methodists, old school Pres byterians, Episcopalians, and Catholics?all deter, mined to propagate their peculiar views, and make converts to their d igmas, will have their zeal awakened, their passions aroused, and a grand, and glorious outpouring ot the spirit may accordingly be anticipated. Probably not less than a million and a half ot dollars are yearly ex[>ended in educating, fitting out, shipping off, and supporting enthusiastic young men in distant and unhealthy climes. The Catholics take the lead in this movement, and appear to be most successful in their efforts to convert the 6ouls of the unbelieving heathen?the missions which they establish, are generally ot a permanent char acter, and, in a majority of cases, support them selves. The Protestant missions have been much less successful; bat the same spirit?the same natu ral desire to triumph?animates both parties. Here, then, we see presented, a large number of corporate bodies, and religious institutions, whose ostensible object is the Christianizing of the world. The sympathies of the members overflow, and es cape in streams ot joy, whenever the subject is mentioned?their hearts gladden with delight i when a prospect is presented of making converts to their peculiar tenets, while boundless pleasure reigns in their souls, when the news of victory arrives? meetings are held in all parts of the country?funds are collected?prayers are offered?speeches made, and young men of talent and ability, are selected vnd educated as missionaries, from the funds of the society?these are ?ent off to the banks of the Gan ges and Burrampooter?to China, Africa, Syria, itec?to convert the indolent and "uncivilised ic? habitants of these regions, to the doctrines and dogmas which are professed by the benevolent mis sionaries. In this way, a million and a half of dol lars are expended. The Baptist Convention, according to their Trea surer's report, expended, during the year ending April, 1S44, 894,785 28, for this purpose. They have been in existence thirty years, and during that time have made 5000 converts in Asia. The expenses of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, last year, was >264,000, for similar pur poses. Under the pastoral care ot the missionaries of this Board, ar<* sixty-five churches, embracing 24, 56f> members, according to the statement of the Board themselves. It is questionable, however, to say the least, it many of thfse converts to the faith would be received and acknowledged by orthodox professors here. In'England the expenditure is much greater. The Quarterly Review, for June, 1825, states that ?1,000 a day were expended on Foreign Missions, which would give us an estimate of ?365,000 per annum. Since then, the amount has very much increased. This enormous expenditure, it might be supposed would produce some extraordinary and beneficial results. We might reasonably expect to hear of much good being done, but judging from all the information in our possession, out little has been achieved. One reason for the want of success at tending missionary efforts, is to be found in the fact that missionaries do not teach one faith?one religion?but quarrel and fight about minor points. There is no harmony existing between the different ^ects?heart-burnings, jealousies aad bickerings usurp the place of love, kindly feeling, and a one ness ot spirit, faith and interest. The beauty, sub limity, and purity of Christianity is often lost sight Of in controversies about unimportant dogmas and non-essentials. This is a lamentable fact, which requires no proof. Missionaries do not go to heathen lands for the purpose of Christianizing them, but with the avowed intention of making converts to their own sects and creeds. They quarrel about the " saving power of baptism"?one sect contending that a man must be dipped all over in water?another that he must only have a little sprinkled in his face, in order to be saved from everlasting perdition and damnation. This absurdly foolish and ridiculous warfare has now lasted many years, and there is no prospect of its being settled very soon. A spirit of rivalry is thus engendered, and native converts are divided into cliques, each i lique. filled with bitter animosity towards all others. The time that should be devoted to advancing the moral, spiritual and physical condition of the |>eopIe, is wafted in talking about theological maxims, me taphysics,and abstruse rules for church government How different from the teaching and example of the mild and lowly Jesus, who commanded charity, humility and love ! We would recommend the missionaries to stay at home and settle their differences, before they attempt the conversion of th'- heathen They will find a wide field for operations here in their own land; and if the battle must be (ought, we should Ilk'- to fee it settled in proper way within the limits of our own country Tht-re is a dark and benighted region in this city, hitherto unexplored, called the "Five Points," to which we would call their attention. It is said there are a great many " heathen" in that quarter, who have never been visited. An excellent opportu nity is, therefore, presented for a trial of their pow ers. The language of these ?' natives," to be sure, may be somewhat difficult to understand at first; but it probably could he mastered in half the time s<l>ent in learning Burman or Chinese There are, ilso, other |x>rtionN of Gotham, in which missions might be established with considerable success ? That extensive thoroughfare, called Wall street?the ..bode of a peculiar |>eople named stock-jobbers, is \ ft nnvisited From all we can learn about this sin gular race, we understand they are divided into two classes, or cn*te>, under the name of "bulls" and ' b?ar?." They, also, speak, an unknown tongue, and congregate within the walls, and about the d'>nr?, of a magnificent temple, erected to their pa Ton saint, called "Mammon " They are said to worship n curiously stamped, circular piece of ms- j till, with the singular title of "dollar." Let them, too, be converted. We publish these interesting tacts for the benefit of the charitable and benevolent, and hope some at* tention will be paid to the conversion of these hea thens in our midst, by the missionary associations with which this city abounds Kk-oroanizatiow of the Kitchkn Cabinet ? The new Kitchen Cabinet, under the dynasty of Mr. Polk, is now complete. The President select ed, a lo.-g time since, a regular Cabinet, Irom the great men ?f the nation; but he rejected the re mains of the old Kitchen Cabinet, consisting of Blair and Rives, and appointed two chefs du cuisine, Ritchie and Heist, in their place. But the tilling up oi (his new Kitchen Cabinet, so important an item in every government, both ancient and mo dern, was left to us. We have furnished three or four excellent reporters from this oltice, to the Union office at Washington, by which act the new Kitchen Cabinet is now complete. OI course there can be no doubt now that the printing of Congress will be given to Ritchie and Heiss. The members of both houses can have no objections, and can furnish no excuse. Heretofore, the government organ has been h great annoyance to Mr. Polk and many sensible friends, from its twaddle, its silliness, its verdancy, and its continual recurrence to the dogmas oi past ages and the musty resolutions of '99. Noting could be expected from the venerable Mr. Ritchie, who had passed near seventy years in a narrow cir cle in Virginia, unpiacticed in the world?knowing uotlimg of its proiundity, its depths, or its hollows, and whose vision never extended beyond the nar row boundaries of ins native State. But all this has now passed away. The organ will be one ol the most brilliant organs of the government ever seen or read. The three or tour reporters which we have tumished that establishment from this of fice, are some of the best in the country?yet we have as good behind. They have taken their de grees in the Herald establishment, and are capable of going through the world under any circumstan ces. We have, indeed, still left, twelve or fifteen, many of whom ure equally good ; but still, it was with great pleasure that we were enabled to till up the Kitchen Cabinet. In fact, this is onlj an evi- i dence of our system ; for during the last few years, there is scarcely a newspaper in this country that has not had reporters who have taken their degrees in this office. We have no doubt that Mr. Polk will be very grateful to us tor taking oft"his shoulders the trouble of filling up the Kitchen Cabinet, and we are happy to find that Ritchie and Heiss appreciate our efforts. One i?oint, however, we must insist upen: all our re[>orters, all those who have taken their degrees in the Herald office, and have received their diplomas from this establishment regularly, are gentlemen and scholars, and men ot intelligence. Now, looking at the piece of brutality perpetrated by Heiss, with a cow-hide, towards Grey, a reporter, we have some doubts that Ritchie and Heiss may not understand the position they occupy towards men ot education and reporters. We never cow-hide a letter writer here or rejiorters. We treat them as equals, and as men who are to instruct the world, after we leave this vale. We therefore request Ritchie and Heiss to treat them well, tor they will give elevation and dignity to the Union, which all the twaddle of Rit* clue and Heiss could not eft'ect. Commercial Position of the United States.? Within the past t*o years there hss been a complete revolution in our foreign export trade. We are now exporting articles of food in immense quantities, to Great Britain; and the foreign demand for our staples is increasing so rapidly, that we can hardly supply it. Our packet ships are crowded full of flour, grain, beef, pork, cheese, &c. Cotton, at present, appears to be a secondary article for shipment, and is taken principally by transient vessels. Two-thirds of the aggregate value of our exports, in former years, have been in the great Southern staple; the planters of the South have been almost exclusively benefitted by the increase in our export trade, as it was confined to the productions of their section of the country Q'>r exports are now drawn from every section of the Union: the wheat and corn of the West, the pro ductions of our Northern dairies , are as impor tant to the people of Great Britain at this time, as the great staple, cotton, has been heretofore. The United States are destined to occupy a position among the commercial nations of the world second to none. We have furnished the raw material to clothe the people of every coun try, and we are rapidly becoming the granary of the world, and the principal source of sup ply tor food to feed the most powerful and wealthy nation in existence. Efforts have been made to cultivate cotton in the East Indies, but they have failed, and the manufacturers of Great Britain are compelled to consume that grown in this country by slave labor. Our breadstufls are becoming necessa ry to the existence of the o[>eratives of that kingdom, and they will be compelled to admit th|m upon the most favorable footing. Considering the immense extent of soil within our limits, our agricultural pro ductions are very few, which can be attributed almost entirely to the want ol markets. The popu lation of the States is so limited that our surplus pro ducts.are annually large; but with an external demand as large as the opening of the ports of Great Britain would give us, the growth of the principal grains would be immense. The western States alone would supply any deficiency in the harvests of Europe, and nothing would enrich those States so inucti or so rapidly as an active demand for all the breadstuffs they could produce. Our principal staple produc tions are so necessary to the nations of Europe, that they must have them. Theymust be fed and clothed, and in a few years we shall have to supply them with the raw material for these purposes,more extensive ly than we ever yet have, and our position as a pro ducing and exporting country, is therefore every year becoming vastly important. Movements at the Memphis Convention.?Our reporter has sent us full reports of the proceedings at this Convention to the 15th inst. But very little, however, had transpired that we have not already published. We shall continu* to receive despatches from our reporter to the day of adjournment. This Convention has created a great deal of ex citement throughout the south-west and west, and many suppose that its labors will result in a man ner highly beneficial to the south. It is thought that the elements brought together in Mem phis may do something But we doubt whether the whole affair will amount to much in the end. It has too many political aims. It appears that, not withstanding the selection of Mr. Calhoun for President, and several leading democrats of the Valley of the Mississippi, for Vice Presi dents, a large majority of the Convention are whiirs ; and although Mr. Calhoun is probably the best man that could have been selected to give character to the meeting, yet he was placed in the chair as an act of policy, and much against the inclination of several whig members, whose aspira tions seem to be higher than the Executive seat of Tennessee or any other State. Already have dis sensions crept into the proceedings, especially in the Tennessee delegation, and the present harmonious appearance of the assembly is very deceptive In deed, we should not be surprised if the whole aflair ended in a row, or something equally as romantic. We are in possession of many curious facts con nected with this movement, which we may give in due season. They may be interesting to the philoso pher, in time to come. They may be developed, however, in the future proceedings of the Conven tion But, in the meantime, let us hope that some thing will be ?lone?that some good may come of this meeting Boakd of Ai.dkkmen.?There will be a special meeting of this lioard this evening. Hie Hon Caleb (lushing was to have delivered a lecture on India. in Philadelphia, last erewng. ANOTHER Ot'TKAOK AND GROSS Pi ICR OF INFAMY. j ?Some time in the beginning of next week, we in- 1 tend to perpetrate another outrage?another terrible act of infamy, upon the lazy and resectable press of this city, if we possibly can. We put in the "if," because the worst intentions), as well as the best, are sometimes defeated by the misplacing of a little fi gure. We mean, on the'arrival of the next Liver pool steamer, at Boston, to run just such an express as we did the last time, if we possibly can, and pub lish ahead of all other newspapers, and send, South and West, the most important news then expecttd. This atrocious piece of infamy, as it is represented by our amiable contemporaries, is positively resolv ed upon, and will be perpetrated, if wind, and wea- j ther, and events permit. The next news Irom England will be even more important than the last, not only in relation to the revulsion then in progress, but also regard ing the ! intending famine, the renewed political agitation, and the various extraordinary movements com- j menced in western Europe. A great many imagine | that the revulsion in England had expended its torce at the last accounts; others believe that the deficiency in the crops is exaggerated. We doubt both of these opinions, and are more disposed to think that the revulsion has only commenced, and that every arrival and every month will only give us aocounts of increasing calamity and increasing agitation. When the great revulsion in this coun try, in 1837, broke oat first in Wall street, us all remember, after the commencement, the poor sufferers and dupes amused themselves every day j by proclaiming, " Oh, next mail lrom New Orleans ; will enable us to resume ; all will be straight to morrow ; Mr. Biddle has promised us Hid from the United States Bank," all over town. But there was no resumption far those who failed, no salva tion for those that trembled. The revolution went ; on from that time increasing, until it spread over the j whole country. Such,we believe, will be the conse- i quences of the revulsion now in England, aggra vated by short crops, prospective famine, high in terest, and diminution of specie in the bank. The news by the next steamer, which we intend to run by express, if it can be done, will strengthen or diminish opinion on this subject?and hence its deep interest. Treatment of Seamen on Board U. S. Vessels. ?A lew weeks since, the papers announced the fact that two officers were sent home from one of our vessels on the coast of Africa, to answer certain charges made against them for ungentlemanly and unolficerlike conduct towards each other?in fact, for calling each other sons of quadrupeds, instead of bipeds. This may have been very proper; but what the Secretary of the Navy has done in the matter, the public is at a loss to know. This should not only be the case when officers abuse each other, but when officers so far forget themselves and their station in command, as to have recourse to still more opprobrious epithets to the seamen under them, while directing them in the performance of their duty. Many of these men are veterans, " and have done the State some service;" and it must be gall and wormwood to their manly spirits to have a stripling of one or two years service, who has got permission to tread a quarter deck, through some political manoeuvre, or electioneering tactics, address him in terms that would disgrace a Five Point loafer. That this is the case, there are hundreds of sea men at present in this port who can fully testify . and this is one cause of the dilliculty of manning our vessels with able bodied seamen ; they cannot tamely submit to such conduct and language to wards them?and why should they 1 It is to be hoped that the Secretary will direct his attention to this matter. The time may not be far distant when all the talent, energy, and valor of our seamen may be required, and in the language of an able writer, we say? " Oh, protect the hardy tar; Be mindful of his merit ; And when again you're plung'd in war" He'll show his daring spirit." Magnetic Telegraph to hie Ocean.?It ap pears, by an advertisement in another column, that the " Offing Telegraph," connecting the oceanwith this city, is completed and will immediately go into operation. Its effect maybe like that of the other lightning lines. We have yet to see, however, what this effect is to be. If the numerous lines of tele graph now in contemplation meet with the success anticipated, the people of these United States, over twenty millions in number, will be brought to gether like a small family circle. The Sentences of the Anti-Renters.?It will be recollected that we were the first to state, that the sentences of O'Conner and Van Steenburgh.the convicted Anti-Renters, had been commuted to im prisonment for life in the State Prison. This was doubted by most of our contemporaries. We now have official intelligence of the fact, in the shape of a document signed by Gov. Wright, giving his reasons for the commutation. This important document we give in this day's paper. Closing of the Season.?All the accounts from the north indicate the approach of winter and the closing of navigation. Activity, in consequence, seems to prevail along the line of the rivers, &c., and the utmost exertions are making to get all the produce in transitu to market, before the icy hand of winter turns the key of the locks," shutting the boats in the canals. [From the Albany paper* of Nov. 24.] There has been a perfect nvalanche ol flour pouring into our city yesterday and to-day. Kvery thing that could float fins been loaded and forwarded to Albany. The Basin is crammed. We venture to say that at least 40,000 barrels are to-day afloat in our harbor ! Winter gives us a premonitory tins morning. The air is sharp, furnishing unequivocal evidence of having been in close contact with Jack Froet. But we hav? no cause to grumble, after having been blessed with such a lovely Autumn. We had a slight sprinkling of snow this morning, which melted as soon as it reached the ground. The sun shone out Anely all day, and the air, although cool, is clear and bracing. About 'J00 canal boats were in the Basin this morning, loaded principally with flour We are informed that several hundred boats are on their way Fast between Utica and this city. The present week will doubtless be the busiest of the season, as enormous quantities of flour will come in, swelling the aluady heavy tolls greatly beyond precedent. [From Albany Argus, Nov 25] The immense Canal basin was yesterday jammed full of boats.unloading produce. The business was very large last week, but it opens now with even a greater press than then. This is considered the last week "fcpnal navigation, and therefore tho hot haste will drive business far beyond any thing we have seen yet. The late news by the Britannia, forces every thing that can be brought to market. We are told that the freight on flour from Buffalo to the Hudson river, has advanced to $1 3D cents per barrel, which is an increase over 100 per cent since the first ol September. The Basin is realy a sight at this busy winding up of one of the most business seasons ever known here. The quantity of flour which arrived in this city, via, the canal, during the last week, exceed that of any previous week?large a* it whs the preceding week. It was within a fraction of 180,000 barrels, The wharves of our city continue to present the most unexampled activity. The world ol western produce constantly pouring through the canal into our harbor is perfectly astonishing. Many of the boats are towed through to New York, but hundreds are still remaining in the river and basin, waiting lor an opportunity to exchange their cargoes. Several extra tow boats nave been chartered to carry freight down the river?the large number regularly employed, being entirely insufficient to meet the wants of the forwaiders. Xew York Klectlon.

Wo hare freipeatly spoken in terma of unqualified praise of the performance of Mr. Placide. Uis perionation of the character of Sir liarcourt Courtly ii inimitable?the ma iner, dress, look and tone of voice, are all in perfect keeping with the "lovereign of the weit end." Mr*. BlanJ played Lady Gay Spanker moat charmingly. Her deacription of the "hunt" was spirited and nervoui, and the whole performance wa* characterized by archness, vivacity and lady-like demeanor. Some of the other per formeri, however, were rather "shy;" but the piece as a whole passed off with eclat. Mr. I'lacide played Urand fatUer Whitehead with his usual pathos mid feeliug. The delineation of this character is thought by muny to be too life-like and startling to be agreeable at all times, it leaves a feeling of honor in the mind; and we shudder when we think human nature can ever be so base as to produce such agonizing and heart rending results. This, however, only Nerves to reflect more credit on the skill of the artiste who enters so deeply into the mysterios of the huir,an heart, aud draws its beauties and its deformi ties into oven day. To-night the delightful and celobiated comedy of the "Hivals" is presented, in which Mr. fili cide and Mrs. Vernon appear. After which, Mr. Placide plays his mirth-provoking character of Dulcimer Pipes,in the capital farce of the "Double Bedded Room." Bowkrv Theatre.?A grand gala achievement last night at the "?Metropolitan," with Yankee Hill, J. K Scott, Davenport, Cony and Blauchard, as announced in the bills of the day, drew a house filled from floor to ceil ing. To night Mr. Scott appears as Wallace, in the " Hero of Scotland," a part to which he does infinite aud sterling credit. Yankee Hill will also appear in one of his most distinguished parts, Seth Slope ; which, to gether with Cony and Blanchard in one of their nielo. dramatic piecea, conclude the evening entertainments. ErmoriAN Seremaders.? Notwithstanding -.tho im mense patronage these popular singers received during I their former performances in this city, the enthusiasm j with which they used to l>o greeted continues to be ma nifested towards them. Last night there was a crowded house, and they were several times encored. We don't know of a better remedy for the " blues" than a night at Palmo's. Ai.hamra.?Thia popular place continues to attract full houses. Its entertainments are very interesting. Christian Huhkr.?This master spirit of the violon- j cello, gives his first concert on Friday evoaing. Ole Bull's Farf.wkll Concert. - This great maestro give* has last grand soiree musicals at the Tabernacle , this evening. All the beauty and fashion of New York ' will there congregate to listen to his parting strains of delicious, soul-entrancing melody, and bid him a Kind farewell. The style of this divine artiste is so pure and unaffected?so free from mannerism?so entirely original and beautiful, that it has created an immense sensation in Kurope and America. The great Norwe gian himself ia as simple and child-like as his music. But beneath his mild, poetic eye lurks the hidden fire of genius ; and on his clear, unsullied brow intellect sits enthroned in all her majesty. Never did any man bet ter deserve the brilliant reputation he has achieved,.or the laurels he has won. His career in this land, which he has blessed with poetry and music,?for poetry and music always refine the tuste and elevats the affections? draws to a close : but his last words will be listened to by enthusiastic admirers and warm, devoted friends,who assemble at the Tabernacle to-night. Ole Bull performs his celebrated " Niagara," and the " Carnival of Venice." The duett for soprano voice and violin, composed by Ole Bull, will be performed by Miss Northall and him self. Mr. DufHeld sings " Nora McShane," an Irish ballad ; and the evening's entertainment concludes with " The Memory of Washington," a farewoll tribute to America. Lf.opoi.d de Meter.?The concert of this gentleman, advertised to take place last evening, at the Meiodeon, Boston, has been postponed, in consequence of the in disposition of the distinguished artiste. It is said his doors are besieged with visitors, who call for the pur pose of ministering to his wants, making enquiries after his health, and paying their respects. The old Federal street Theatre, in Boston, has been leased by Mr. Barry, of the Park, for a term of years, commencing next fall. Mrs. Mowatt and Mr. Crisp made their first appear ance, at the Richmond Theatre, in the "Lady of Lyons." Madame Augusta made her second appearance, last evening, at the Walnut street Theatre, Philadelphia, in the ballet of " Nathalie," and the grand Spanish dance, " La Hondeja." The house, on Monday night, was crowded to exccss, and the papers are loud in praises of the fair danstuse. The Orphean Family are in St. Louis. John Oxley, the tiagedian, is playing with great suc cess at the Charleston, S. C , Theatre. He appeared 011 the 22d inst, as Hotspur, in Shakspearo's "Henry IV." Miss Mary Duff, the talented and celebrated tragic ac tress, is playing at the American Theatre, New Orleans, a most successful engagement. Sporting Intelligence. The races over tho Cherokee Pond Course, in South Carolina, commenced on the Hth init. A very hand some race came ofl' between Mr. Stewart's s. f., 3 years old, by Boston, out ef imported Emily, and Col. Single ton's b. c., S years old, by Sovereign, out of a Director mara. The former won the race with upparcnt ense. The track was in fine order, the attendance large, and the general teelings of tho spectators seemed to be in accordance with the weather, as line as heart could de sire. The following were the entries for to-day : Mile heats. G. Edmonson's h. f, 3 years old, by Gano, dam, Sally McGraw. John Singleton's ch. m., Julia Davie, hv Ronton, dam by Kosciusko. A. Bell's s. m., ft years old, by imported Trustee, dam by Eclipse. S. W. Shelton's s. c., 4 years old, by Monarch, dam Betsy Andorson.? W. B. Smith's s. h., ft year* old, by Frank. City Intelligence. Evacuation Day.?Yesterday was a proud day for tho military of this city. It was the 62d Anniversary of the evacuation of New York by the British soldiery. AVe have never seen a lovelier day. The air was clear, the sun shone brightly, ami his brilliant rays, glancing upon the helmet* of the soldiers,lit up the whole martial scene with a gorgeous beauty. The sun, which rose as glori ously yesterday a* it did at Austerlitz, was greeted upon his appearance with a salute fired Irom the Battery, by the veteran corps of Artillery, which was answered by a return salute from Col. Delavan'i detachment at Fort Washington and McGowan'a Pass. At 11 o'clock the line, composed of the different companies who intended to parade, was formed in Washington Square. Mere, after undergoing a review, they passed through the prin cipal streets ol our city,and reached the Battery at about \2 o'clock. A halt was made in front of Washington's head quarters in 1783, and an American flag was hoisted. When on the Battery, a ling was hoisted on tho Battery staff by David Van Arsdall, whose father performed the same duty sixty years ago. They then the Park,where,after passing in review before the Mayor and Council, and partaking of refreshment in the City Hall, and firing afeu dr joie, they were dismiss ed. We are happy to say that in spite ol all the opposi tion, nearly all the companies in the city were out. The Philadelphia Washington drays marched with the 31 Regiment of Washington Grays of this city. Several companies, with their General Officer*, tho Mayor and Corporation, afterwards proceeded to the Arsenal, agreeable to the invitation ef Gen. Storms, and joined in the dedicatory services of a trophy room which hits been prepared as a place of deposit for all ordnance, arms, Jcc., taken Ironi the British in tho revolutionary end late war*. Tho company partook ol a collation; after which speeches were made by his Honor tho Mayor, Re corder Talmadge, Major-Gen. Striker, and J. I. Mum ford, Esq. Recorder Talmadge presented a letter from Gen. Washington, written to his father, which will remain in the hands of Gen Storms. A national salute was tired in the yard during the ceremonies. Empire Club.?The Empiro Club gave an entartain mont, last night, at the "Star House," in Reaile street, in vindication and support of their towering influence last fall, as rendered by their vote inlavor of the present administration, and in support of James K.

On Sunday last, large congregations were present at the South Baptist Church, in Schermerhorn street, on the occasion ol sermons preached by Dr. Welch, of Al bany, in the morniug, and by the Reverend Mr. Church, of Rochester, in the evening. At the First Universalis! Church, in Fulton street, two discourses were delivered by the eloquent and musib es teemed pastor, the Rev. T. B. Thayer, on the following subjects First. " In what sense uro some the children oi the devil, if all are the children of God I" Second. " An exhibition of the scriptural doctrine of Universul Redemption." At the Primitive Methodist Church, in Bridge street, but few persons were in attendance, inconsequence, it is probable, ef many of the members being engaged in making arrangements lor their proposed "tea party," which was to "come off'' Inst evening. The "Church of Our Saviour,'Vin I'ierpont street, coiner Monroe Place, had by farlthe most crowded con gregation of any other temple of worship in Brooklyn, (with the xceptian of Calvary Church, in Pearl street, at which the ltevd.

Tkmpletom's Concert.?This entertainment lust eve ning, at the Brooklyu Lyceum, was attended by as largo an audience as could well have been crowded together within the walls of the building, anil among tho audi ence we noticed many of the most fashionable and weal thy people ol the city. Many prior and important en gagements prevented ua from remaining longer than few moments in'the concert room ; but, during such brief stay, sufficient token of approbation and applause was manifested, to convince us that this accomplished artist would, throughout the evening, add many wreaths to the laurels which he had previously won. Sporting Mattkrs.?Quite a large concourse of peo ple attended the Centreville Course, L.

The bet ting, at the start, was six to four in favor of the horse, which distanced its competitor in the first iieat in two minutes and thirty-four seconds. After tho close of this contest the same parties again matched their horses for ?50, and the result was a second conquest for Pea cock, who gallantly and easily won three consecutive heats, making first rate time in each mile.

A number of distin guished past officers and most active members of tho Order, residing in Brooklyn, will immediately become members. Stirling Lodge, No. 190, was instituted last evening at the Montague ltooms, corner of Montague and Fulton streets. A large number of the Order from New York were expected to be present. Police Item*.?The hou;e of Mr. Whitohorse, No. 70 Rensen street, was yesterday entered by a thief, during the temporary absence of the inmates, and robbed of several articles of silver ware ; and on Monday an apartment in the premises of Mr. Dowing, No. 383 Jay street, was visited in a like felonious manner, by soma prowling vagabond, who stole thence a pilot cloth coat. We are informed by an Kx-Alderman of the city, that at a house in the Wallabout Road, not very long', three men were observed by a person whoso name he is in possession of, in the act of ilividing among them a large quantity of valuable cutlery, which the gang had with them in a carpet bag. From particulars which have since been communicated to us, we have no doubt that tho property was stolen from one of the large wholesale establishments in New York, engaged in the importation of such articles ; and we, therefore, advise the police of Brooklyn to be immediately on tne qui vive to ascertain all the lucts connected with this very suspi cious affair. movements of Travellers.

On Sunday morning last, the body of a female was discovered floating in the canal near McKinney's store house, in this village, by one of tho lock-tenders, Thomas De Witt, who procured assistance and removed it from the water. It proved to be the body of Elizabeth J. Speed, a girl sged nineteen, late of Norwich, Chenango county. An inquest was held before Coroner Congdon, at which the following facts were elicited Elizabeth J. Speed came to Binghamton some five or nix weeks previously, remaining with some relatives, who are among our respectable citizens, until a week or ten days since, when she engaged herself to do house-work in the family of Mr. A. C. Angell. She proved a good girl, but was very silent and sedate. On Saturdny eve ning she retired to the room where she slept, with another young woman, who went to bed and finally to sleep, leaving Elizabeth looking over her trunk. Noth ing further is positively known of hor until she was found dead as related ; but it appears sufficiently evident that, after her companion was nsleep, she changed her clothes, arraying herself with much care, put 011 her bonnet and shawl, and left tho house. The next trace of her is on the west side of the canal, on the dock by Lewis' store-houso, where her bonnot and shawl were found carefully nut together, and where she doubt less threw herself into the water ; whence, buoyed by her clothes, she floated down the canal some forty or fifty rods, to the spot whore she was found. Her dress was pinned to her stockings ; she lay much upon ths surface, and her clothing was unruffled, ami not entirely saturated with water. We havo some additional particulars connected with this most melancholy occurience, from a source wo deem reliable, wlnoh may throw some light upon tho motives which influenced this unfortunnte girl to the terrible act of self-destruction. She was an illegitimate child. Her mother is living in this vicinity?her reputed father is a man of some note in a neighboring county ? SI10 was brought up in a respectable family in or near Smyrna ; and, so far as we can learn, has always borne a ?ood character. For some time she has been under en gagements of marriage to a young man in Chenango county, who, from time to time, han adjourned over the period of their nuptials, until she became aatisfied that he intended to forsake her. This circumstance sho im parted, with much feeling, to her sister, a few days sincti ?and this it probably was, which, casting a blight upon the luture, In addition to the blight of the past, induced that morbid condition of mind which led her to loathe life, and to caat it from,her.?Binghamton (AT.

The specutatioA going on in flour and breadstuff* is, as yet, rather limited, and present quotation* are with difficulty sustained. There is at this moment very little specula tion going on in anything out of Wall street; the brokers must bare some ball-rolling, and if stocks aro declining and the market for fancy securities depressed, they must take hold of something elso. The lino of the Vermont Central Bail Boad, from the mouth of White river to lake Champlsin, is now all loca ted by the directors. 4 At a meeting of the directors in Boston, a futther hearing was hud on the question be tween the Northfleld nnd the "Gulf routo," as it is called. The Northfleld route is a lew miles the longest, but the difficulties of the Gulf route, through Williatnaton, are so great as to render the Northfleld route most deci dedly preferable. In the Gulf route, much of the line is on side hills, with heavy and expensive cutting, short curves, and in many respect* an unfavorable and un safe route; while the route from Boyalton, through Northfleld and Bftrlin, to Montpelier, is of easy gradients, not exceeding forty fe?t to the mile, favorable for con struction, and no short curves The engineers wore unanimously in favor of the Northfleld route, and as do cided ia their opinion against the Oulf routo. A full hearing of all the parties, on this important question, was lately had at Montpelier; the engineers have spent much time and labor in obtaining repeated and aecurate surveys of the two routes, and the directors themselves have given much nf their attention to the investigation and examination of the subject,-?the unanimous conclu sion of all parties being in favor of the Northfleld route.

The falling ofl ia quotations for sterling exchange within ths past month, has been about two per rent, nnd the tendency is still downwards. Under the extensive exports of our staples, independent of our usual shipments of cotton, and the probable demand in Great Britain for our breadstuff* during tho year, sterling exchange must touch a much lower point than has been realized for some time past. Our imports at piesent are not very large, particularly those from Great Britain, and the halunce in our favor on our trade with that country for the coming year, must lie very large.
