Mmw V?*. Tm?tmy, Aaprt IT, 1?4T. News from fcurope Ai the time of our going to press this mornnig, we had not received any tidings of either the French or British stesmer, both of which are due. The former is seventeen days at sea, if she sailed at the time advertised, and the other thirteen It is probable we shall hear of them to-d?y. As usual, we shall issue an Extra Htrald immediately after we receive news^by either. Present and Prospective Position of Political Parties. The elections, which Have been going t?n lor bome time past, for members of the Thirtieth Congress, bid fair, at one time, to briug about a change in the political complexion of the House of Representatives. The recent elections have placed the position of the two parties about where they were, and the result is still very doubtful. It is impossible to tell how the elections about coming off* will go, but, so far, the whigs are in the ascendancy. We annex a table, showing the result of the elections, so far as actunlly known. It will be (xircmvcu mui nil- wmgo iinrr gauiru iwentynine members. McMasBt Ki.KCTEO. Whig. Dtni.

Aspect of the new Congreet 116 113 Elections in eight States have yet to be held, Home to fill the full delegation, and some to fill vacancies in the event of the political complexion of the members about being ejected being precisely similar to that of those whose terms have expired, the whigs will have a majority of only four, by no means a good working majority, where there is so much political apostucy and so many political renegade*. It is, however, fair to suppose that the whigs will have a larger majority, that they will gain something in the elections about corning off, and that they will make a better show on paper than they now have ; but we have very little faith in the orthodoxy of politicians in these degenerate times, and, therefore, think that one party has jnet about as good a chance as the other. The more equally they are divided, the more fun wc shall have during the session, and the I?*ph -U r .?l : c ' ? ? ? i tutuicc 01 nuyuung 01 importance neing aone id the way of business. We have carefully corrected the new 1 ist of members of the 30th Congress, and shall give it to-morrow in as perfect a state as possible to make it. Th? Foitmutcr GencraL?Tlie Kewipapcraand tb? Merchant*. The diffusion of knowledge among the masses I of the people lias always been con-idered essentially necessary to the. perpetuation ef American institutions, and the preservation of our rights. It has accordingly been adopted as a cardinal principle by political parties, and encouraged by successive administrations, from time to tim<;, by affording every facility to the proprietors and publishers of newspapers, which have become so generally read, that they are considered indispensable companions of every family in the land. 1'nder this judicious policy the newspaper press of the United States reached a greater circulation than i' has in any other country, and we are satisfied tuat it exercises a most beneficial effect on its millions of readers. Wherever you go?to the interior of the far west?to the confines of the Rocky Mountains?in every log cabin and thatched hut in the land, you will see a newspaper of some kind, the daily perusal of which must of necessity improve and edify its readers. Of all the heads of the Post office Department ,i.? i ...i I themselves to promote the circulation of know. ledge by the medium ol newspapers, Amos Kendall and John M. Niles stand forth in bold relief. While these gentlemen were in oftice, it was their constant anxiety to procure the removal of obstructions in the way of newspaper circulation, ;tnd make it as free as theairthey breathed. To Mr. Kendall in particular, who was perhaps the beat Postmaster General we Ixive ever had, the , i-aople of the United Stales are under the great; j est obligations for his exertions in this respectwhile of all the post masters that have ever held office since the first establishment ol our government, Mr. Cave Johnson, the present incumbent, , has done the most to prevent the circulation of j new?pa[>er3,and the consequent diffusion ofknowledge among our citizens. Every petty annoyance which a narrow and illiberal spirit could think of has been inflicted on publishers, and every law that would harrass and annoy them has been suggested. For his exertions in this respect, Mr. Cave Johnson has entitled himself to any thing but the gratitude of the public. But it is not in this matter alone that Mr. John* son has proved himself unfit to hold the nfiicehe does. His hostility to the circulation of newspapers, is equalled by the narrow-minded and ! diminutive policy which characterises his ope rations in nthf-r rcspects. With the view of nar- \ "owniR the expanses of the department over j which lie presides, he takes not into considera- ' , Hon the convenient-* of the public, hut the few ' I dollars he can save. The Having is the point lie ! , aims ai, not the accommodation of the. public.? i As an instance of this, we may refer our readers 1 to hia miserable mismanagement about the great .Southern mail,which could reach this city every day nt ten o'clock, as well as at three or four in the afternoon. The Camden and Amboy railroad brings to us ev?ry day Southern pai>ers. j? which we receive early in the day, whereat* we > do not get our letters until it is too latcto answer , hem by the return mail. If our inconvenience is great, it is not near so great as that is sup- J tained by the mercantile community. It is of the highest importance to merchants to receive Itheir correspondence as s >011 as posni.?!? , in order that they inay o|>erate advisedly, or direct their agent* to do no 1 Jlow it* it now? VVhy, our j merchants instead of receiving their letters at ten o'clock every day a? they would do, if Cave Johnson were not ?o rnurh behind the itgcashe i*, do not receive them until three or four o'clock, too lute for sending answers by the return mail. This results from Mr. Johnson's practical applies tion of his me;tn, narrow contracted views, i Indeed, iie ho* nidde u S(;ience ot meanness, Uiid has more ability to be a professor of it on j r 11 ' n Finall scale, than he prmtsbes to >>e nt the iK-ml of our post office department.' The fact is that Mr. Cave Johnson, since hit* induction into office, has been a drag on the administration?a mill stone around Mr. Polk's neck, and if his term of ofticc were to last three or four years more, he would sink him to the bottom. The democracy are proud of progress, but with Cave Johnson it progresses backwards. W*?5t I*dia N*ws.?We have received papers from Kingston, Jamaica, from the 12th to the 30th of July last, inclusive; but we find nothing in them of interest. The coolits, it appears, are either too lazy or or not incliued to work, and sickness and destitution are carrying them off rapidly. A cargo of three hundred had recently arrived, a large number of whom?twenty-five?died on their pastmge. It was, at one time, feared that the continued absence of rain would seriously injure the crops, but all apprehensions were relieved by abundant showers. Health or the City.?The city is becoming quite healthy. The deaths last week were only three hundred and ninety-four. Of these one hundred and ninety-three were children under fiveytnrsof age. UTV i\(ro T^i? i ? * fict tux t ^ i/?h for Cherbourg, Sunday morning, at half-past 8 o'clock, was seen offFire Island at 5 o'clock the aume afternoon. Theatrical. Pauk Theatbc ? Mr. Frai?r took his benefit at the Park last fvenlng. There was a good attendance, and " La Sounambula" was performed to the satisfaction of aU. Madam Bishop aoquitted herself in such a manner as to call down the house In applause at her performances. The finale, which she again sung in Italian, was bj request, twice repeated, and received each time with the greatest enthusiasm. Mr. Kraier was called upon to repeat hU song of " Still so gently" and was, moreover, called out to receive the congratulations of his auditors. Mrs. Bailey and Mr. Brough also did well in their parts, aud Chapman, as ever, made considerable fun of the low comedy part" Alesso." To-night is the last night ef the opera soafon, and a part of " La Sonnambula" will be Kgain presented.with thy whele of "Linda of Chamoniji." and the twojlart scenes of the eomlc opera of ' L'Klisir d'Amoro," including the new rondo finale, composed at Naples by Douiietti tor Madame Bishop, who will appear as Adiua. with Mr. Kraaeras Nemorino. Added to all of which will be performed the farce of the " secret." The benefit, night of that celebrated vooalist, Madame Anna Bishop, and her 1? t performance at the I'ark theatre, previous to her leaving for Boston and other cities, will take place on Wednesday, the 17th instant. On that ocoasion we are Informed that the gifted Artist will present to her friends and the pnblio a grand dramatio entertainment in costume similar to those ?he nave with so much suocessat Vienna. 8t. Petersburg, Munich, Koine, 4to., and wbioh at Naplua created such a sanitation at* to gain her the permanent post ot Prima Donna di cantellu, .at the great San Carlos, the flrot theatre In the world, *? it li the largest. Bowery Theatre.?The beautiful play of " Lore's Sacrifice" will bo repeated this eTonlng, Mrs. Shaw, of oourKe, taking the part of Margaret Ellmore. It really appears that this lady gets more perfect in her profession every time wo see her. Her acting of Uiis difficult part U decidedly beautiful and thrilling. In other respects, the cast is the same as it was last night. Mr. Clarke, who is one of the best aotors on the stage, and who will play with Mrs SUaw during her engagement, will take the part of Eugene de Lorme ; Ml1. C. Burke that of Jean Kuse, Mr. Bellamy that of the Kriar, and Mr. Marshall that of Matthew Elimore. The drama of the " Inchcape UeU," whloh is a yieoe of sterling merit and splendid scenery, will oonolude the amusements for the evening. The uproarioui applause with whloh Mrs. Shaw is always greeted on her return to the stage, is flattering testimony of the estimation in which she is heid by the playgoing public. Mr. Clarke acts and feels as if he were among old friends. Chatham Thkatiu .?Four capital pieces will be performed at the Chatham Theatre, and a crowded audii'nee will be there to see them, particularly when It is known that the receipts will be for the benefit of Mr. and Mrs. Howard, whore exertions to pleaso the publio are, we are confident, properly appreciated. The pieoes are i ' The Queen's Own," ' The Irish Pretender, or New Light#,'' " The Widow's Victim," and the Irish oome- , dy. " Teddy the Tiler." There is a hojt of talent se- , cured for th? occasion. The well- known and admired > Harney William* will play the part of Doctor O'Toole, , in ' The Irish PreUtader." Mr. Chanfrau will take the ( nart of Jeremiah Clio, in " The Widow's Victim-'' Mr . I trough am will play Teddy Malowney, in " Teddy the Tiler;" and Mr li rattan. Mr. and Mrs. Howard, and Minn Bernard, will aim appear in " The (Queen's Own.'' This cut comprises a combination of talent rarely keen ( together. MImi Bernard is a popular ballad singer, lately arrived from London. . P*i.wo'j?Thk well known and oelebra- j ted Havel family, last night made their re-appearanoe I before the public of New York, for the first time since ' the great fire at Niblo's Garden. The house was crowded to exoeas, and we oonfess we never have seen that place so well filled. The door-keepera were at last obliged to refuse the entrance to many ladies and gentlemen. The English vaudeville company performed the farce of ' Kftnchette," in which we saw Miss Taylor, whose acting, voice and style ot singing, is neither worre uor better limn it was two yearn ago. Ax for Messrs. 11acide and Sefton, they excited roars of laughter. The exercise on the Tight Rope by Kransois Ravel, Oabrlel. M'me Martin Javeili, M. Javeili. and ' La Tetlte Amour" were] received with great applause. Uabriel exhibits always the same elasticity?the same grace and eleganou; and Si. Leon the same daring for which he has been so celebrated at Niblo's. The i'olka, executed by Mme. Javeili and Mr. Wells showed us these two artists in a very graceful dance; and the whole conoluded with the pantomime of " M. Dechalameau," in which Oabriel Ravel sustained the character of Kocquinet We had occasion .to speak of Charles Winther's personation of the same character, and said that he was the copy of Oabriel; if the last stand as the first, the first is the se' oud. The eutire performance went off in a grand i stylci and during the intermission, we had occasion to proucnade on the vast piazza, just built over tho ba'.h House, which, lighted with colored xlasses, produced a beautiful effect. This is decidedly a great Improvement, and whilst taking a good ice cream, one may enjoy the sweet music of Lamana's urchestra, which plays the latest waltzes and 1'olkas of the brat composers. In short, If not ?<|ual to Niblo's Garden, it in second only to It. No doubt that with such an attraction at the navels, I'almo's theatre will be well attended for the entire season. To-night tbe grand pantomime of '' Vol-au-Vent," together with the faroe of " Kancbette," tight roue dbuclng, and ' L.a Napolitalne," by Mad. L .lavellt and Mr. H. Wills,which is,Indeed, a very attractive bill. Castle Oahofn.?The Lehman family made their j bow at Castle Garden last evening, and were received 1 with the applause to which they are aeoustomed. The ( nmuM-mentH commenced with the operetta of "Why L)ont She Marry?" which was very well performed by i the vaudeville company. Mr. Wfnther then gave a specimen of what he oould do, and performed somo won- ' Ut-rful feats on the tight rope?but the erownlng part of J tbe entertainment was the nt plus ultra of M. Christian, M. Antolne, aiid M'lle Julie This was decidedly tbe ' most perfect feat on the tight rope we ever saw. We never heard more rapturous applause than what follow- ' ed it. Tbia evening the ballet company will perform the operetta of "Turning the Tables''?and the Lehman 1 family will repeat the "Pecheur Napolltian.'' In the J course of tbe evening Mr. Winther will dance on the 1 tight rope, and tbe "N? ilus Ultra" by the Lehmaus, ' will likewise be repeated Tbe bill Is one that ought to 1 (ill the hoase, large as it is known to be. j ?Mlm C.

Thc Italian Onti.-The Havana company of Italians, under the direction ot Signer Villarino, who not long slnee carried us all away enraptured at the excellence of their ^performances, have jnat returned from a professional tour to the fashionable watering places, and are about to open at Castle Garden, where they will appear to-morrow night for the llrst time, In costume The stage has been enlarged and Improved and rendered adequate to the requirements of the occasion. On Wednesday nightHrrnani'' will be performed, and on Friday night " Norma" will be given. "Hernani," with Tedaaco. and Vlti, and the rest, not forgetting the chorus of the Havana company The bare announcement is enough, and the occasion will show for Itself in what egreeable remembrance we hold our late acquaintances In the musical line.

Success to the new enterprise. 1 Hi v mnmiA aEirntDiii.? l uase muuiwuie umu?ators of negro character; and sable peculiarities performed last evening, at the Minerva Rooms, to a large audience, among whom were many ladies. Their songs overtures, choruses and all, were admirably executed, and were received with great applause. The serena&rs give evidence of very good talent, and show that they have faithfully rehearsed their pieces. The song '"Old Virginia Shore" and "Pioajune Butler" were last night moored, and it is but justice to say that tbey deserved such a demonstration of approval. The burlesque of ' Stuffo" is laughter provoking to the last degree. It is a caricatured rehearsal of the opera of uSaffo," and detios long faces and blue devils. The Serenaders are to be at the Minerva Rooms all this week. The Christys are in Cleveland. City Intelligence. The Weather.?The thermometer ranged up to 83 degrees at neon, yesterday, at Delatour's St Co.'s, Wall street. The day was extremely warm, but the heat was not oppressive, as we had a soft breeie throughout the day. Escafc or Oai.?In the vicinity of Fulton, between William and Nassau streets, the small occasioned by the escape of gas la most offensive and dangerous. This la occasioned In oonsequence of the construction of the new sewer In this locality, whloh has caused the gaspipes to break, or seme suoh injury, whereby the gas escapes. Why not employ more hands at the works Tt Fire??A fire occurred yesterday morning at No. 39 Roosevelt street, in a room eceupied by Mr. CSlancy, who, with his wife and family were absent from the premises. Their apartments,with the contents, were nearly all burned up. The cause of the fire is not known. The Fiat in Waihinoton itreet.?The fire which occurred in Washington street on Friday night, originated at No. 103, instead of No. 103. Thp rri riTUi i ?Wfl raw nnn of mir rhlnnaA frtAnria la Broadway on Saturday laat?under one arm a email tea cheat, a pair of Chinese sandal* on his feet, his long hair done up In a flowing pigtail hanging behind him " a feat." and a broad grin on.his oountenanoe; he seemed to be watohlng the long train of oarrlages, omnibuses, pedestrians, &.O., cefiling down the street, and we have no doubt he was talcing notes by the way, with which he will aatonisb his untravelled friends on his return to China. We understand that the Waterwitch carried out several despatches from the Keying's orew, though we hope they were not as large as their Tilting cards which are exhibited on board?if they were, we oannot imagine how the mailbags of usual sise could contain them. Ovkk Done ok Lavdanlm.?Coroner Walters, on Sunday evening, held an inquest at U7 Lewis street, on the body of Clara M. Smith, aged 3 months and 10 days. From the evidence, its appears that the aunt of the deceased, about a week ugo, sent her daughter, aged eight years, to a druggist's for some paragorlc. but by some mistake laudauum was purchased instead; a portion of it had been used by the family as paragorio. On Friday last the mother of the deceased, to reliefs her child of pain in the bowols, prepared forty drops with sugar and water, and gave a portiou. Soon after the child became stupid and drowsy, and towards evening of Sunday died. There was no evidence to show at what store the mistake had been made, as a week hud elapsed since it was purchased, and the bottle had not upon It the label of the proprietor ot the store, who was said by the obild to have sold it. Verdict, death by an ovor dose of laudauum, obtained for paregoric, from some place to the jury unknown. Suiciuk.?The ooroner held an inquest also at No. 36 Walnut street, on tho body of a female of dissolute habits, named F.llen Smith, alias Bridget llagan, a native of Ireland, aged 28 years, who committed suicide on Sunday night, by taking corrosive poison, which she procured under pretence of using it in killing bed bags. Verdict accordingly. Tithus Fkvkr.?The Coroner held inquests at No. ti00){ Washington street, upon the bodies of Oraoia Brown, a native of Connecticut, aged 30years; and Julia llobinson, a native of New Jersey, aged 4i years?one of who mdled about lOo'olook on Sunday night; the other early yesterday morning. Verdict in each case, death by typhus fever. Fatai. Accident.?A sad accident oocurred in this city yesterday, which resulted in the death of a fine little boy of about four years of age. It appears that when one of Hatfield Sc Bertine's stages was passing the junction of Division and Grand streets, the child ran under the stage, and before the driver perceived him, the wheels passed over the poor little fellow1 head, breaking the skull and crushing the brain?of counie killing htm Instantly. The accident probably would not have occurred, if it was not a habit of drivers to take passengers on the top of their vehicles. The driver of the stage in question, had a few minutes previously taken up a boy, whom he seated along side or him, and he was perhaps tttendlng to his safety, and not paying as much attention to his horses as he would have done if he had had lothing else to engsge him. Brooklyn Intelligence. Count* Court ai*d Court of Sessions.?Both of ;hese Courts adjourned on Saturday sine die. Outrageous Assault.?As William A. Cast, of the lrm of Miller & Cast, of Atlantic i-treet, was returning 'com church yesterday evening with his sister, in passing through Bond street, be was violently assaulted l>y lour drunken rowdies, aud was obliged to fly to save his life. Omnihussei.?A new line of omnlbusses is about to be started from Pulton ferry to the Navy yard. This will certainly be a great accommodation to persona visiting that part of the city. Coroner's Inquest.?There was an inquest held at New Utrecht on the body of an unknown man, that drifted ashore at the Narrows; he waR about five feet nine inches in height, stout built, dark whiskers and hair. A verdict of" Found drowned" was rendered. An Inquest was held yesterday on the body of a child, aged only five months. It appeared that the child was given a spoonful of laudanum, instead of paregoric.which caused its death. A verdict was rendered accordingly. To1.1ck.?Thomas Sweet was arrested for an attempted rape on Harriet Bowman; examined aud discharged John Wlllard, an English sailor, wasarrested for kicking up a spree in the streets.

Anothkh CAMrMcKTiNfl.?The congregation of the (eutenery church, intend holding a camp meeting this morning u.t Verplantk's point. It will probably continue to the latter part of the week. The members of this church were prohibited from attending the camp meeting held last week at Karmlngdale, and nave determined to get one up nn their ''own hook."

I kin ft cosmopolite, ftad I hare changod ay quarters for ft few days, you will by the date of mj letter I mm going to fttUmpt to deacribe to you the fancy dress ball, which was ({ITen at the United States Hotel, last evening. I acknowledge that 1 am unable to-day to gi?e ft (uttftble deacriptlon of thi* grand ball ; because, on ac count of thla affair, I hare not slept in forty houra. Among the company at Sftrfttogft, which ia the beat In America, there seemed to be a general Interest in thla event; there were few who, if time could hare been nad to make suitabls preparations, would not hafe attended that ball. Many peraona who hare lately arrived did not know that auoh ball was to be be givenuntil it was too late for them to prepare for it.? But there were no impediments to the ardor with which the resident visiters looked forward to thla carnival, as something which would be mi re brilliant and extraordinary than any previous party; sums which some could not lose withaut becoming ft beggftr, were expended for jewels and Idresses to be worn upon this occasion, and in procuring these articles, there was all that furor and agitation and hubbub whioh is characteristic of the American exclusives. The room where this ball was given is about one hundred ftnd fifty feat by fifty, and it is only necessary to walk ftcross the vestibule of the hotel to reach the parI ?kA.iM?ko aamft tha dAi?orfltinn> Of thf( room were very elegant and very fine; the obandeliers were deposed (o an to make the light the mirror of a coup d'ail. which might have been like the Court clreles of Queen Elisabeth of England.

The door* were opened at pine o'clock, and the entree immediately began; the preoa of people outside was so tremendous that it was neoessary to barricade the passages with table*, Ice. ko., in order to sec are the avenues to the bali room for the danc rs. I will bow give you a list of the character* personated, with the initiator the name of the individual personating eaoh character. Several of the managers entered the room in civilian's dress, and during the eve-, nlng an immense number of ladlei and gentlemen were allowed to enter the room without the fancy dress. 1 regret this, and would suggest to the gentleihen the great propriety of remaining away, unless they are willing to comply with the programme of rules which are imperative to overy gentleman. When these personH were allowed to come in ordinary, the ball was no longer a fancy dress ball. The first character whioh I shall notioe, was Charles II. which was nobly sustained by the Adjutant General of this State. The (ieueral, in his own persou and mind, is " every inch a king," and I do not imagine there is an; character whiob he can personate so well as that of a sovereign. I was rejoioed to see that he was perfeotly happy, and I commend him to the world, beoause he is willing to be a patron of the fine arts, and because he loves to perform noble actions. The next chtxaotor I noticed, was that of an angello nun?a novioe with a white gossamer veil disposed about her beautiful head and person in suoh a manntr as to prove that she understood the character of the brave and gentle sister she was attempting to personify. Her person was evidently matchless and faultless, and her head was more tuperb than heads of Cleopatra whioh I have seen, and which wer?%the production* of masters. She is the most beautiful woman ieveriaw; it is Miss E. F., of New York. I am told her temper is like her person. The next was Lieutenant Derby, of the army, in elegant uniform. This offloer was wounded at Ceiro Oordo, and the bullet remains in his side. Electrlo flashes, sufficient to annihilate a common man, were directed at Dim trom a hundred pair? of bright eyes. The next in order was 'little Cupid. It iu a child of five yours, a oon ol Mr. N of New York. He wore an elastic drees, which fitted closely to hi* form, so as to counterfeit the nudily of the original Cupid as nearly as possible. He had bis little bow and his pretty quiver of arrows, and his wings, also. Mrs. C., of Philadelphia, sustained the oharaoter of a maid of honor of the court of Louis XIV. She is a lovely and majestic woman. Miss C., of the same city, looked admirably in tho character of Norma. Affss II., of the same oity, a talented and lovely woman, sustained - the char to tor of a Dutch or Swiss peasant girl in a most accurate way. Mrti. T. of New York, as the Queen of NUht, looked like something which was worthy of homage and admiration. Her dress was black, and her person was enveloped in a black veil, upon which were worked numerous silver stare. Mr. T. did the character of a Chinese mandarin, very perfectly, 1 think. Mr. H. of Baltimore, was Ivanhoe ; his appearance was noble and pleasing. A character which is entitled to special notice, was that of a French beau of the last oentury ; It was sustained by Mr. D., of Miss., in a most elegant manner.? Miss J. of Baltimore, looked very beautiful; she danced with U v. Pratt, of Maryland. Among other charaoters, of which gentlemen seemed to have a fair'conception.wereithose of SirKichardVarne, by Mr. F.; Rob Roy, Dy Dr. H., and 8aladin, by H. D.T.; this gentleman was in oomplete Saracen armor, which was gorgeous; in fact. Mr. Taylor, of Prince xtreet, New York, who was the costumer for this occasion, bas a collection of the most magnificent fancy dresses in the world. Mr. T. s. personated air W alter Kalelgo, ana the speaker of the aisembly personated Sir Roger de Coverly, in an able manner. There were severi-l French boatmen; these characters were well sustained in some canes ?others, however, wore laoe collars and white kid gloves, which boatmen do not wear. A great feature in this splendid scene were two Cheroste Indians; one of the gentlemen is actually a half breed Cherokee, and the Indian character was represented perfectly. Komeo was well done by Mr. C.; the Karl of Rochester was done bv an army officer, and the Karl of Leicester by Mr. J., of- ; Hamlet, the royal Dane, was done by Mr. M.; Mr. K. W. of Baltimore, personated Lord Amherst; he appeared in a splendid drcHS of the time of Oeorge III.; Mr. K. W. of New York was an excellent Yankee, a little weak in the eyes; he subsequently appeared as Don Cesar de Bazan. \v. 8. R.,ofN. Y., appeared as Lord llussell, as described ou the day of his trial by James, in hia last new novel. Mr. C. T. H. was in Turkish costume. Baron Wrangell appeared in the uniform of an officer of the Ouaids of the Kmperor Nicholas. C< G. T. was a Spanish grandee?a hidalgo, perhaps. To-day 1 i>ositively have no time to be more elaborate. I will enlarge at another time. The supper was served at midnight. Captain Inaiuh Rynders, of New York, rose, and announced that the intelligence of the occupation of the Mexican oapital by Scott, was confirmed; he gave?the army and nary, which was drank with six tremendous cheers One character which I have forgotten to mention was that of Fra Dlavolo, which was ably sustained by Mr. McB , of New York. Kichard III. was nobly done by Mr. H., of Boston. There were hundreds of characters that I cannot mention to-day. Cokurem Hall. ) Sahatoua braiNtis, Aug. 15,1847. J Sporting Intelligence. The great- trot between Lady Suffolk and Mosoow. which was advertised to come off over this oourse yesterday, caused considerable excitement among the town residents. The attendance was very large, and the road to the track was crowded with pedestrians, equestrians, and carriages of all kintU. About Are thousand persons were present ; among the spectators were a number ot lovely women from the south, whose interest in the event seemed greater even than that of the gentlemen The straight stretch down the front of the track?a third of a mile?was lined with carriages two deep. The weather was perfectly ench?nting,though, on aocount of the late rains, the track waa somewhat heavy. The course is about four rods in width, and is said to be one of the finest in America. The horses were on the ground at half past three; neither of the animals seemed to be In proper condition; and the horse was declared to be sick, and unable to make a good trot. The odds were immensely in tavor of the mare; and an individual offered to bet on* hundred dollars to twenty that tbe horse would be dlstanoed the first heat. Fifty dollars to twenty were frequently bet upon Suffolk. There were few takers at any odda.? Moscow went to a sulkey and the mare to a wagon. At four o'clook '.he horses were called to the sta nd, and at tbe first attempt to get off, Mosoow broke. The second attempt waa successful, and the start was very even ? The horse waa inside. At the quarter, whioh thev reached in forty-two seconds, the horse was a length in advance Here he osade a very bad break, and fell behind the mare some six lengths. All the efforts of his driver could not prevent him from breaking several times In succession during tbe heat. Tbe mare reached the stand six lengths ahead, at a pace of about six miles to the hour. Time.:i:bi. Heavier odds were offered upon the mare, but there were no takers. At the second heat the mare had the choice of place, and thev got off prettily at the firot attempt; at the quarter pole Suffolk was Umttli In aHvunnu uthott ika hrnbii anrl \1 nartntar in. Hantly went in front about four length#; it ?y noma Hcconds before the mare oould be brought to her work ; Hhe noon recovered, and tn making up the gap down th e back stretch her speed waa perfeotlj tremendous; at the three quarter pole she lapped the horse, when both animal* broke up at the same instant; the mare recovered tint, and went in advanoe Are length* whioh (he maintained to the stand ?time 2 54 ' At the eud of thin heat the horse appeared to be exceedingly distressed Hi* owner, (General Dunham. pa**ed into the judge*' stand, and stated that the horse waft sick ; and requested that he might he withdrawn; the judges assented, and it ww announced that Suffolk had won the purse. Subsequently, however, Mr. Whelpley, the trainer of Moseow, declared that (ten Dunham had no rightto withdraw the horae; Mr. W. had paid the entrance money, and he insisted that nobody could withdraw the horse butblm*elf. The judges, upon consultation, refused to award the purse to Suffolk, until *he had Iron another heat. They announced that they were in error, and that Men. Dunham oould not be allowed to withdraw the horse, because by a oontraot between himself and Mr. Whelpley, tha entire control of Moscow had been given to the latter gentleman. The horse* were then brought up for the third heat; considerable time had elapsed since tha last heat, on acoount of the misunderstanding I have mentioned, and Moscow seemed to have quita recovered. The start waa ruse fair anri uvan And tha- of MoHCOW UrffMfi him to ttie very utmost; at the quarter he was a length ahead aud going at a remarkable rate; suddenly h? broke, and the mure went in advance tliree lengths ; from thin point down the back Hide to the three quarters, the hurses went at a rate which I have never Mun equalled ; Moscow gained constantly, and when at the last quarter he lapped tfte mare in spite of all her efforts, a great cheer was given by tl)? spectators; Suffolk broke at the turn, and the hoise went in front; the excitement was great; , Moscow retained hi* position iu front, and passed the t ilistanoe stand a length in front of the mare ; every body was astonished at the mettle of the horse,and everybody waa confident be would wlo ; but tbey were destined to i be disappointed; the horse seeined.sure of the heat until ' lie waa within fifteen roda of the stand ; here he made a ' terribly bad break, and In conaequenoe, the mare beat 1 aim by a neek. Tine?2:44. c AflMfl III OMMlfc [Prom the Monvreal Herald, Aon. 13.] Parliament vu prorogued on tha day upon whioh oar last tunmiry ippiitvd, and u usual, immediately altar the conclusion of a mmIod, tbara has baau a complete lull In potltloa. Nor ha* tbara baan much occasion for movement in any otbar department. Auguat ia usually one of our dullest months tor trada, and advantage haa, therefore, been taken of the oeseation of buslnees to oloee tli > I.aclitoe Canal, in order to prooeed with its oomptetieu Tbie U the n arest work to Montreal of all our clmin "i aiiil Is that by which the rapid* immediately above the city, are avoided. Shortly before the lioiwe wa* urorogued, n discussion occurred as to the propriety of keeping the water out until the whole of the earth work should be finished, it was then stated officially thatjwhen that shall be accom plished.and a particular improvement, comprising only a few hundred yard* of work, effected on a spot, a little above the Beauharnols ( anal, the line of navigation from Montreal to Lake trie, would in no place have leas than nine feet water. The canal was closed on the 7th, and we believe the merchants desire that it should be re-opened, not later than the 1 ath of nest month. The orops promise to be tolerably good. The Elictrie Telegraph has been recently completed from henoe to Toronto, and the line ia by this time finished?or nearly so?from this city to Quebec. We shall, no doubt, have It speedily extended to Halifax. The oondltion of the emigrants daily arriving amongst us, though somewhat lees painful than at the commencement of ihe season, Is still most distressing. The whole number landed during the season to the 16th of Auguat, in Quebeo and Montreal, was 70,006. being 42.803 more than last year. Of these 4,67-2 had died at Grosse Isle up to the 4th of July ; and on the (ith of August, Cthere were 2 148 sick In the hospital there. In Montreal, at this date, there are In the Emigrant Hospital, 1,179 sick persons : and during the past fortnight the deaths at the 8hed* have amounted to 286. But this doe* not ex blbit the whole Iom of Ufa : for besides several death* reported by the usual municipal authorities. It appears that 386 persons have been buried In the Emigrant burial ground slnoe the 29th June, whose deaths have not been reported at all. We oan, therefore, hardly put the numbers down at less than 450 persons In the fortnight. Among the citisens the sickness has. as shown by the returns, much decreased, owing, probably, to a great deorease of temperature; but the mortality among ehildren is still very great; and the weekly rate on the whole population largely exceeds that of last Tear. In theatricals, we have lately had Mr. Wallaok, and now have Mr. Anderson. Both gentlemen have met with good success?good, at any rate, for Montreal We have, as usual, to report a great increase In the accumulations deposited In the Savings' Banks The most recently established?the City and District Savings' Bunk? bas published its statement from the 1st of April to the 31st July. By this it upprais, that the amount held for depositors is now, ?40,407 8s., or A'iO,067 5s. more than at the earlier date We have also to announoe the arrival at this port of the brig Fowler, with 1200 bars (195 tons) of railway iron, for the 8. Lawrence and Atlantic Railroad Company. (She Is about to dlsoharge this day at the oompanv1h wharf I .on orn All 11 This la ?ha wojuoI wliich has arrived this season with railway Iron for that company; the former, the Annette, Ollbert, brought 1,646 bars, or 345 tons. We understand that the remaining rails, to complete sixteen miles of the road from I.ongueull to the river Richelieu (1,600 tons,) are in transit for Montreal. The exports for the oturent year have been considerably more than double that for the corresponding period of 1846. Health of Montreal ?The Montreal Bourd of Health makes the following official returns of burials, from the 0th June to the 7th August, 1847 Died in the city 1730 immigrants (lied at the sheds 1610 Total of deaths in nine weeks 3340 In corresponding nine weeks last year, lnoludlng emigrants 488 Increase in 1847 3763 { Fever oases amon? residents, in nine weeks, 1847,... 309 In corresponding nine weeks, 1846. 63 Increase, 1847 346 No return is made of the diseases which carried off 806 emigrants, reported us dying in town, but they may be assumed to be mostly cases of feyer. whinh, taken with ! the number of residents, gives a sufficient basis, on which to calculate its extent, in the midst of our population. In the week ending 34th July, the number of deaths j from fever among residents, was 73, the week following 63, and last week 39.?Montreal Herald, -Aug. 14. Columbia Rivek, Oregon.?Fearful stories are told of the perils which are encountered at the mouth of the Columbia river; and on looking oyer a file of the Oregon Spectator, we are glad to find that Mr. i Curry, the editor, h'as set seriously to work to disabuse | the public mind with regard to a matter of so muoh importanoe. As the Spectator remarks "Suoh is the bad reputation of the river, that' whalemen would rather be ! wrecked outside than venture in,' while the fact appears ; to be, that an Ignorance of the channel Is the chief difficulty.'' The Spectator says " We are at length compelled to say something upon the subject?to tell the truth, to speak it plainly, boldly, and in a manner that ; will silence opposition; and more particularly are we in- ! duced to this course, by seeing in the marine news of the Polynesian, of Ootober 10th. a report by ('apt. Parsons. o! tuu snip Mariposa, mat' lite Mariposa struck several times on the bar, in coming out of the Columbia river.' j We must very bluntly tell Capt. ('arsons that bis ship j was not in the channel if sho 1 struck several times on | the bar,' or if she was she must draw an immense depth of water, as there is at any stage of the tide full five fathoms of water in the channel." Two United State* I vessels of war have been wrecked at the mouth of the I Columbia, and many years ago a ship belonging to the | Hudson's Bay Company. This is the foundation of the i prejudices against the entrance of this river. The Spectutor insists upon an acquaintance with the channel being all that is necessary, and as a proof of It has the following " We have but to state the tact, that Captain Crosby, of the bark Toulon, readily acquainted himself with tDis channel ; that upon ihe strength of this acquaintanceslilp, he piloted thu Mariposa in at night, and anchored her safely in Baker's Bay?that as commander of the Toulon.he went out of the river on his lost trip to the islands, with the wind dead ahead?beating out?making taok for tack, and in four tacks from the bay was at sea. We would ! likewise state the fact that the Toulon hum in this last { time by the lead, without her oommander seeing the I land until he had made the cape at the mouth, as there ' was a heavy fog prevailing at the time " A series of artides on this subject seems to establish the fact that ig norunce ana unrounded alarm Have done inj ustioe to one j of our noblest and most Important river*. The Spectator. on one occaslun, thug concludes : "If we had but a ateam tow boat, and It cannot bo long, lu the >ature of things, ere we will have one, our commerce would enjoy a facility that would immediately, by a rapid enlargement, give it a value and importance which otherwise It may be yean in attaining. Vessels in the winter time are liable to be subjected to delay in performing the extent of river navigation neoessary to a communication with our markets The ourrenta of the Columbia are strong and swift, and the winds are not al> ways to be depended upon, nor are they always available. Henoc the importance?the neceMity of steam ' tugs," for. In giving facilities to oommerce, we most certainly forward the interests of Oregon.'' Caravan from the Selkirk Settlement.? On tli* 10th ol July, there arrived at the village of St. Paul. near st. Peters and the Kail* of St Anthouy, on the Upper Mississippi, the molt novel and original looking caravan that has ever appeared sinoe Nnah's Ark was evacuated. Our readers are aware that there is an isolated settlement of several thousand inhabitants In a high latitude of British North America, known as the "Selkirk Settlement." Cut off from the commeroe of the world, they rely entirely upon their own resources, their farms, their flocks, and Ashing, for support?being a community, so to speak, of Robinson Crusoes. Their crops having failed the two last seasons, they hare been forced to break out of the wilds again and seek food in the market of the great trawling world. Formerly their chief point of contact with commerce, was at Toronto; but now, owing to the increaee of supplies on the Upper MlMisstppl, and the abundance of game and forage on that route, they trade at St Paul, the head of steamboat navigation on the Mississippi river. Into St. Paul they oame, on the 10th of July, a caravan of one hu> dred and twenty carta, in single file, wearily moving along by moonlight, after tbe head of the caravan had reached the village, the lengthened train of follower* could be seen moving over the undulating prairie, partly visible and partly hidden.between the billowy ridges of the extended plain, crawling onward like some huge nerpent, tbe extreme rear still invisible and partly hidden In the dimness of distance. They had travelled southward over the prairie six hundred mllM, having been nineteen days on their way, through a region abounding In buffaloa?encamping at night in a tent, around wtiich the carta were arranged in aolrcle, to fence in the oattle. They were hindered considerably in crooning some of the streams?and In many places found a scarcity offuel, and of even the drv exorement of the buffalo, which they use for fuel. They oflen suffered for I want of water?a* many of the smaller streams were so I strongly Impregnated with the excrement of the buQalo as to be unwholesome They brought along a large elk. a bear and some other animals, which they bad captured on their way?and many packages of fur*. They had a very choice lot of buffalo robes, well dressed, wbicb they sold at St. Paul by the lot at $3 50 each. They h id wltn them also an abuudance of specie; and waited a few day* at St. Paul, for the arrival ot a steamboat load ol fluur and grocerlea.
