The Program or Law Ktfurui In (lit State of Now York. vVe referred the other day to the report of progress of the major.ty of the Commissioners on Practice ami P.eadiugs, made to the Legislature on S iturday last, and congratulated our fellow citizens that ere long the ridiculous harrassing and annoying impediments, in the way of obtaining justice, would be abolished. The u Hiimissiouers bay in their report that it is their duty, and no less their inclination, to recommend the simplification of the rules of practice and pleading, by providing a new and a plain, simple and intelligible system. Whether auch a system as they propose to recommend be needed or not, we shall leave such of our readers u? have not h id the misfortune to be entangled in the meshes oftne law, to judge, by submitting to them a case of every day occurrence. Suoh of them as have had suits at law, either as plaintiffs or defendants, cannot but be pleased at the prospect. Suppose, for instance, that Timothy Oddfeliow na* done some work or sold a bale of goods t i Peter Simple, to the amount ot one hundred dollars, th" paym-nt of which he wishes to enforce by law.

JOHN DOE. Attorney for plaintiff "What's the meaning of all this," says Mr. Simple. "Here I am charged with owing /Timothy Oddfellow four different sums of three hundred dollars each, and one of one thousand dollars, making twenty-two hundred dollars, when, in fact, I owe him only a note of fifty, with a month or two's interest on it." Of course he does not understand the jargon of the paper, but he turns over and he finds an endorsement on it explaining the whole. This endorsement is a8 follows : ? Take Notice, That the following is a copy of the promissory note upon whish this aotlon is brought, and which will be given in evldenoe under the money counts contained in the within declaration, and is the only cause of action on which the plaintiff relies in this suit. New Yoke, February 1, 1847. Ten days after data I promise to pay to Timothy Oddfellow fltty dollars for valut reoelved PETER S1MPLF, Yours. Ito., JOHN DOE, [$50 ] Attorney for plaintiff. Mr Simple will say, " "Why could not Mr. Doe say at first that he he was sueing me on that note, | and not put me to the trouble of reading all this nonsense: UUU|Wc nuuiu tioiv uic same ijucouuu* The answer we would get from Mr. Doe would be, that all these charges of three hundred dollars, an d one thousand dollars, are fictions recognized by law; but if we ask him whether there is any fiction in the poor suitor's paying him for those fictions, we would quickly find out to th"$ contrary. Mr. Doe is paid so much per folio for these fictions, although he paid only three cents for the whole paper, and procured his as' sistant to fill up the blanks. For years past our citizens have been harrassed in this way by service of papers on them, containing a quantity of balderdash they cannot understand, and we would ask, is it not time that these fictions were abolished 1 The same humbug is used in every other species of action?in trespass?assault and battery. If a declaration ot assault and battery were served on a man, he would, after reading it, think that the poor plaintiff was at death's door,in consequence of injuries received from brick bats, pitcniorK.8, stones, staves, bucks, unucyrry other weapon, used by him against the poor fellow, notwithstanding that he only pulled him by the collar of the coat, and told him to go about bis uusiness. Another batch of fictions would be served upon him, and it he did not know their meaning, he would flee the country lest he be tried for murder, or compromise the suit by paying over to Mr. Doe every dollar he had in the world, for the sake of avoiding being indicted for manslaughter. If the Commissioners on Practice and Pleading will do as they say they are determined to do, and the Legislature do its duty, we shall get rid of these outlandish documents and their ancient jargon?suits will be commenced according to plain sense, which all can understand. If Timothy Oddfellow wants payment of his note of fifty dollars, he will tell Mr. Simple so in plain language,and not bring charges against him amounting to twenty-two hundred dollars, which ihe lawyer says are fictlous, but for tue clearing up of which he will have to pay for in reality. Ocean Steamships.?The Launch ok the Hermann.?The splendid new steamship Hermann will be launched at half past one o'clock this afternoon, from the ship yard of Westervelt St Mackay, at the foot of Seventh street, Last river. It will be a magnificent sight. The first of the Ocean Steam Navigation Company's ships having been named after the Father of America, they have called the second the " Hermann," after the Father of Germany, in compliment to our German fellow citizens, who have so nobly contributed their aid towards the undertaking, and as an appropriate acknowledgment of the substantial proofs given to us of the friendship of the city of Bremen and the German States generally, and of the enthusiasm with which they have welcomed the establishm#?nf of a rlirrrl it^nm mail lin* h#fur*?*n tU? United Sutra and Germany. This new steamship ha* for her figure-head a beautifully carved full length figure of the colossal M'atue ot Hermann, the Cheruscan chief, who vanquiahed the Roman legiona under Varus, and to whose memory that statue was raised on the battle ground, aome 1800 yeara after the event, by the united contributions of all Germany, thus becoming one of the symbols of German nationality in our days. Aa such the name was chosen, and if the deeda of the chief that bore it be less familiar to ua, yet we know that every German looks upon that name with pride aa that of the hero, who broke the yoke of Imperial Home, und saved hia country from becoming a Roman province. To Hermann's famous victory over Varua we owe the preservation of thoae peculiarly Teutonic lawa and institutions, which were carried to Kngland by the Anglo-Saxons, and which are now the baaat of that country and of this. Those wh? may be present at the launch this afternoon, will recollact these facts, and look upon the Hermann and her figure-head with the deepest interest. Movements In Politics.

We are indebted to Mr. Richard H. Fisby, lately attached to the packet ship Auburn, which vessel was wrecked at Barnegat, on the night ot the 26th inst., on her passage from New Orleans to thiicity, for the following particulars and incidents of the melancholy event:? It appears that the ship was under double reefed topsails, and about half-past 12 o'clock the Becond mate, whose watch it was at the time, heard the roar of the breakers at a distance of about a quarter of a mile ahead, and immediately communicated the intelligence to the captain, who sprang on deck instantly, and ordered sail to be made, so as to work the ship off shore if possible, and was promptly obeyed.? The attempt to da so, however, wsb of no use, for the ship being previously under a press of sail, and lying close to the wind, there was not time sufficient to work her in, and in consequence of a heavy head beach sea, Bhe could not be stayed. She struck accordingly, in a short time afterwards, at a place about five miles south of Barnegat Light, the weather at the time being so thick, that neither the shore nor the light could be seen from the ship. The next thing to be done wits to cut away the masts, iu order to relieve the vessel, and preserve her as long as possible, which was done at about halt past two o'clock, by the Becond mate, Mr. Bisby, at the risk of his lite, he being the only person who consented to do it. As soon as the masts were overboard, the vessel slewed round with her head to the sea, and laid in that position until about 11 o'clock, when it was discovered that she was broken amidships. The wind having abated somewhat then, it blew less violently till about two, when it was thought it was dying away, but it again increased in force till five o'clock, when the violence uf the sea broke the vessel to pieces. The first attempt by those on board to reach the shore, was made at nine o'clock. The captain ordered Mr. Bisby and Mr. Eccleston, one of the crew, to get the small boat ready to take those on board to the shore, which they did, and 1 lowered her, but the line by which she was attached to the ship broke, capsizing the boat. Those that were in her at the time, viz: Mr. Bisby and Mr. Eccleston, clung to the bottom, and with the boat, were cast ashore by the surf. As soon as those men had somewhat recovered i from the bruises they received, they alarmed the \ persons living in the neighborhood, of the catastrophe, and to their credit be it said, they exert- | ed themselves as much as was in their power to ! succor those remaining on the wreck, but the ( violence of the wind and the. waves prevented i ihem from rendering any effectual assistance, i Meantime the remaining persons on the wreck j got the long boat ready, which they launched, j but through some mismanagement it was swamp- I ed and lost. Hope seemed now to have fled from j every bosom, and no further attempt to save them- | selve? was made, till about five o'clock in the ' afternoon, when Mr. Fisby (our informant,) Thomas Chandler and William Sutton, prepared to launch a raft of their own construction, and i which they made of a few small spars, and i two empty casks. They hung it at the stern, and invited all who desired to do so, to get on it, , and do their best to reach the shore. No one but a sick man, named Thomas Tabor, and Mr. Fisby's wife, ventured to accept the oft'er, and with these three persons on it, the rait was cut adrift, and finally waB cast ashore; not, however, before the sick man was washed off three or four times, and as often rescued and taken on again, by the gallant and brave Fisby. As might be expected, all three were much bruised by the surf, Mrs. Fisby Buffering in this respect more than the others. Those who remained on board the wreck were i... :?u??.? Mr u.iK..Pn ?k. IUOI| lUWIUUlu^ VU|'?U?U **V/ ?) *'* ?*V.WH|U) ?MV first mate; Mrs. Baker, wife of private Baker, of the U. S. Array; a boy named Henry, of Bridgeport, Conn., and several others, the names of whom our informant, Mr. Fishy, will give us in the course of to-day. The following are the names of those saved:? William Sutton, mmsn, Thomastoa, Md. William Ecolrston, do Boetoa Tho's Cbsa<iler, do. Amsterdam. Richard H KUby, do. Now Vwk. Eleanor KUby. his win, Jv Mr. Bisby, seeond mate. do Tbomas Taber, passenger, Wiseass ett The last named is the sick man saved through the exertions of Mr. Fisby. The amount of cargo was not accurately known by Mr. Fisby, but at the time he left the beach, the following property was seen on it, and drifting about:? 134 bales of Cotton, 99 bales of Hemp, 6 barrels of Castor Oil, 9 Hhds. of Tobaoco, 6 or 8 tons of Beeswax. A large quantity of saddletrees, and a number of boxes, containing elegantly bound books. In closing the account of this melancholy occurrence, we cannot lorbear mentioning that it is tne opinion ol Mr. t isby, that it there were life-boats at Barnegat Light House, or on the beach, not a single life would have been lost, and the greater part of the cargo would have been saved. When the Auburn left New Orleans, she had twenty-six souls on Doard; two of them, viz? Sergeant Higbee and private Baker, of the United Slates Army, died on the passage. The seven whose names are above mentioned, were saved, and the rest perished at the wreck. We are in hopes of obtaining the names of all those lost sometime to-day. Military Movements.?The New Jersey Battalion of Volunteers, recently mustered into the xervice of the United States, by Captain M. 1 Knowlton, United States Army, sailed for Vera Cruz yesterday morning, in the ship Senator. It consists of four companies, and an aggregate of 343 men. The officers are as follows Lt. Col. Dickinson Woodruff; Captains H. A. Naglee, J. Reynolds,!). McDowell andD. I'iereon ; Lieuts. J. H. Stiles, E. M. Bard, W. L. Young, and J. Vanhouten ; and 2d Lieuts. J. W. Mickle, H. C. Spillman, A. M. Law, C. Abrams, J. McDowell, A. McKinley, ?. Ferris and F. Harrison. Lt. Bard, who was for a short time a cadet at West Point, has been appointed Adjutant, and Lieut. Mickle, Acting Assistant Quartermaster and Commissary. Tins Battalion contains a great many fine men, and when they have been long enough in service to acquire discipline and instruction, we may expect to hear a good account of them.

W? have to weloome to our waters andcommerca another beautiful steamship. Yesterday afternoon, we, by invitation from Messrs. Spofford, Tileaton & Co., accompanied a number of merchants, sci -ntific gentlemen and practical nautical operators, on an excursion in the new steamship Northerner, which has been constructed for the New York and Charleston trade, to run in connexion with the Southerner. At 2 o'clock, a company numbering about 150, among whom were ?. K. Collins, Esq., Lieut. Brownell of the Navy, Mr. Haswell of the Engineer department, and others, assembled on board this beautiful steamer, at the Novelty Works, and were soon after under way, bound to Sandy Hook. She passed down the river, and rounded Governor's Island, with the wind blowing nearly a gale W. S. W., and in one hour two minutes was abreast of the outer buoy on the Romer?distance 16 mile*; The engine, which is considered equal to the power of 500 horses, is from the works of Stillman, Allen & Co. It is similar to that used so successfully on the Southerner, and was yesterday the subject of especial remark. The engine room is clean and neat, and is fitted with platforms of iron grating work, allowing free accrcs to a current of fresh air, passing through the room. The steam is supplied by two separate boilers. Tha hull of the ship bearB a very noble appearanoe?her lines are easy, graceful, and well proportioned. The rig is that of a fore and aft Bchooner, but with three masts, the foremast carrying a square sail, topsail and topgallant sail, the main and mi '.en oarrv spanker and gaffs. She was built by Mr. W. H. Brown, and measures 1150 tons burthen, length of keel 195 feet: on deck 210 feet, beam measures 83 feet, th? hold is 14 feet 6 inches from the main deck, and 22 including the upper deck. The o>tbin arrangements are as comfortable as any packet or steamer afloat, having elegant accommodations for 160 passengers. The saloons and sleeping apartments are between decks, well lighted by vertical windows on deck, and in addition to this, each state-room has its side window, which may be opened at anytime to admit the air: these rooms are furnished with marble top toilet stands, settees, and other luxuries not often to be met with, either in steamers or sailing vessels. They are also supplied with a bell leading to the steward's apartment. The forward cabin, which is used for the dining saloon, is tastefully ornamented with white enameling and guilt beading?it has space sufficient to seat at table 100 persons. The main saloon is abaft the engine, beautifully adorned with finely polished mahogany and enameled work. The furniture, carpeting, and the appointments throughout are of the finest description. The sofas, lounges, &c. are of a late French pattern, covered with very showy satin damask. The ladies apartments are elegantly and comfortably furnished, having every requisite for a sea voyage. Below this there is also a great number ot sleeping apartments and ladies' sitting rooms, well lighted and judiciously arranged. On deck she nas a neat house, running from immediately abaft to the forward end of ihe wheel house, in which is the clerk's office, mate's room, engineers' rooms, and an elegantly furnished apaitment occupied by the captain. The various other cabins, including the pantry, ladies' and gentlemen's toilet rooms, are in keeping with the general arrangements of the vessel The ship returned to the dock at six o'clock ; not, however, before the guests had an opportunity to test the ability of the steward in culinary matters, and to prove the virtue of the choice viands which were offered in profusion. For the entertainment of the company a magnificent repast had been prepared, which was partaken ol with the sharpened appetite a sea breeze is so calcalated to excite. The Northener leaves on .Saturday, on her first voyage to Charleston, under command of Capain Budd, a gentleman of long experience in steam navigation.

The Fall Rack*.?Yesterday afternoon, while on onr way to the Centreville track, to witness the trot, we overtook en the road the magnifloent stable of Mr. O. P. Hare. In the lead, we recognised Passenger, mounted by the pet rider of Mr. Hare, as pretty a specimen of a Virginia negro as ever dressed in jockey costume or danced to a banjo ; following, came the beautiful sorrel mare Palmetto, then the grey mare Bostona, and one or two otbers or celebrity. As the races of the oomlog week will be highly exciting, we would suggest to those having the matter in hand, that they adhere to the usages of tb? old Jockt-y Club, established about 1823. making 1PM the hour ol starting, which gave the olub time to enjoy a good dinner, and over their wine, conclude upon future matohes In thoee days we apeak of. we could boast as leaders of the turf suoh names as R L Stevens, Geo Sharp, H. Suydsm, Dr Hosack, John A King, J C Stevens. J. Prescott Hall, id gmut omnr.? Krom the interest exh biting in all quarters, we have every reason to expect the ouming week will be the most interesting one that has occurred for years. Centretills Course, L.

Whelan,b. m. Bell Ringer die. Bellringer was the favorite at the start at two to one against the field, but met wltn an aocldent in the first mile of tbe first beat, by which she lightened the pockets of her Mends considerably. The following Is a brief summary of the affair Firit Heat.?There was some delay In getting off; but when started, they went away at a rapid rate, altogether. Going arouDd the first turn Medoc, with the lead, broke, and yl- lded It to the black mare Modesty, which she continued to hold until near tbe half mile pom. wnere Meuoc leppea ner. Tlma, I :'2() Krom thence round to the stand. they appeared to hold each other in fond embrace, defying their hard-hearted drivers to part them, in which manner they pawed the judgei stand In 3:47?Bellringer having met with the accident spoken of above, as she came up the stretch Commencing the next mile, and from thence to the <iuarter pole, the grey horse and the black mare appeared at swords points, throwing defiance In each others face, as if to oombatfor the lead?or It may have been the drivers who wished to part oompany; at all events there was a manifest disposition to separate, atlU each was derirous to be in front, and this caused the trouble; Medoc thought the black mare, whose name waa Modesty, nhould not obtrude herself In front, but she believing, that modesty, on this ocoaaion, would be more honored in the breach, than In tha observance, used every exertion to be foremost in the fray; and truly,theatrug Kle between them for the lead created quite an exoitement among the spectators They came to the score so closely looked that it required a private consultation of the judges to decide whiohbad won the heat. However, after due deliberation'on this mooted point by these - potent, grave and reverend slgnors," it was decided that Medoc had won by a neck, in 6:84. Second Heat ?The start for this beat was very even, and Modesty and Modoc went off with a rush; but unfortunately lor the mare, she broke ere she had rounded the turn, and lost so much that we saw fifty to five wagered that Medoc would win the race She was net able tw overtake him after her aocident,and he continued to lead, on a fine pquare trot, throughout the two mtlee, and won easily. The mare, although a good one, has been badly taken care of, and not In oondltion ; and, although defeated on this occasion, she must not In future be held too lightly in the opinions of the over-wlae It it the belief of the sage* that had not the accident occurred to Bellringer, she would have been beaten in theoontest; for, 6:30?the time of this heat?la mathemat KawnnH Kar Wan Harlem Park Count.?There will be a sweepitakes this afternoon for two trottera and a pacer.

The Supposed Murder Cask.?We yesterday took paiuH to inquire in regard tothe death of the late Mr. Holt It will be reoolieoted that Coroner Spedden held an inqueat ou the body of the deceaaed, whloh waa found floating in the Bayou St. John, on Saturday laat. When the body waa taken out of the water, it waa (Uncovered that there waa a gaah aoroaa hla throat, but by whom inflicted no one can tell. The bonea of the face ot the deoeaaed, from the top of the eyebrowa to the end of the noae, aeemed to hare been maahed iu by aome blunt inatrument. Thla, hewever, may be Moounted for, by the faot that in Bayou St John there la a large quantity of timber floating It wonld not at all be at'ange for a dead body, floating an the top of the water, to be dlaflgured by oomlng In contaot with tbe timbers An for the gaah on the tbroat no one knowa how it came to paaa.

Tha cheriahlng of her efforts t aeema to h?, aa It ought to be, a mattar of national pride, which ooald only be Increaaed when aha haapaaaed the ordeal of European oritlciam which aha la ao aoon te < teat. We enter into no minute oritlciam of her aoting. beyond the almple expreaaion that it ia nature poetixed; J the soul of the poet speaks In the very intonationa of her I voice; beama forth In the expreaaiona of her lovely faoe, and ahowa itaelf in every action. She la not the actreaa | merely atudylng great, though unnatural effects, and ' | endeavoring to atartle an audience by the disgusting j habit of ranting?yet ahe han greater power than we ever aaw united in ao drltoate a " physique," la alwaya impassioned, and often burets forth with electrifying power We perc-ive that aomn of the critica betray their ignorance by quealioniug th<* hiatorioal correctneas of her play It seems they are not aware that Richelieu's having had a oonoealed daughter ia an hiatorioal lact, and has already been the theme of poets and noveilsta; who has not read Mrs Maberby'a exquisite novel of L.e vuvauv, vuuugu uie pioi IB eourriy uiuvmuv irvui of Mrs. Mo watt's play, yet, the subjeot Is the sam?. We have only apnea to nay that Mr Davnaport nightly grown In l?Tor with the audience, and the part of Armaad la calculated to ahow hia Hue powera to great advantage. Bowmr Theatbk ?There la no abatement of the excitement caueed here by the produotlon of the n ?tional drama,'' the Siege of Monterey, or the Trlumpha of Rough and Heady." The houae waa aa much orowd ed laat evening, aa it waa on the drat night, and we are not aurprlaed at it, for it la decidedly the beat piece ever brought out at thla theatre, which, alnoe It tame under the management of Mr. Jacluon, haa been celebrated for the richneaa and aplendor of the apeetaclea enaeted on it* atage. The moat remarkable teature of thla new piece Is the fidelity of the aoenea represented.? They are true oounterparta?taken from drawings made on the spot by oompetent artists, and at a considerable ooat of time and money. The manager will find it difficult to withdraw this pieoe in time to allow him to produce the seoond of the serlea, whloh he is preparing with due haste. It Is hardly necessary to say that this new pieoe will be repeated this evening. The oomedy of the " Spectre Bridegroom'' will oonolude the evening's amusements. Chatham Theatbk.?The oftener we see the new pieoe produoed by Mr. Fletcher at the Chatham Theatre, the more we like it, and we think the publio are o! the some opinion, for we saw many persons there last evening whom we saw every night of its performance As a general thing, Mr. Neafie performs his parts admirably, aa Indeed do all the performers; and we must say that he appears and aots to better advantage In navel characters than in any other. His part in the " Lonly Man of the Ooean, or the Night before the Bridal," is admirably suited to him, and allows him to display his talents In a very oonspiouous manner. His acting last evening drew forth repeated burst* of applause; and the personation of the other characters was excellent Mr. Neafie la becoming a gr< at favorite at the Chatham. The new pieoe will be performed again this evening, and be followed by the operatlo drama of " Rob Roy MoOregor, or Auld Lang Syne." Ravel Family at Falmo'i.?This talented and popular troupe who have alwaya been auoh favorites in thia oountry, are about cloalng their exhibitions here, perhaps forever, as they sail for Europe at the end of the week and Gabriel, that prinoe of pantomlmists, has posi tively d termined to leave the stage forever, when he leaves here. This, then, ia the laat night but one that he or any of the family perform, and they present ono of tbe best bills of the season, vil., the vaudeville company in tbe farce of ''Kill or Cure," and tbe comic ballet pantomime of "Punch in Good Humor," with dances and feats of strength and agility; after whtoh Madame Leon Javelli, with her brother Mr. II. Wells, and Martin Javelli and F. Ravel danoe the '\Jota Arragonesa;" the whole to oonclude with the laughable pantomime of ' Robert Maoaire," with Gabriel as the hero. Palmo'i.?M. K.

Bowery Amfhitheatre Circus.?To-night that old favorite John Gonln, the clown of many campaigns, will appear and add merriment to the already heighten ed pyramid of fun which is nightly ptesented by the great Italian clown Carlo and the Holland Family. The The Chinese extravaganza of "The Foel of Pekin," is again to be performed, and after it, numerous feats of knMamun.ttln fir <? A fan. ixaaIt anfitUH ''Santa Anna's Kfeapn, or the Retreat from Buena Vis ta," will be given. Qossin takes the part of Santa Anna Qreat amusement may be looked for. Madame Anna BiiHor's Concert.?This great oonoert, which has been the subjeot of expectation for some time among the musloal world, will take place this evening at the Tabernacle, regardless of weather. Those who advised Madame Bishop to postpone her oonoert last Friday, were doubtless iufluenoed by a kind feeling, but In fature this lady will, under all circumstanoes ol weather, redeem her promises. However, this much may he said of the present postponement?the weather certainly does promise to be better to-night than it was last Friday, and we trust her first oon.'ert will prove that a good start en a fair night Is as agreeable to all concerned as It would have been under the unfavorable olrcuinstauctH of the night originally named. The great Boohsa makes bis first appearanoe this evenlog. His fame is universal. Mr Brough also appears. The oonoert commences at 8 o'clock. Dr. Collyer'i Model Artiits.?The Apollo Roomare nightly crowded to witness these beautiful performances. Dr. Collyer did not caloulate without reason wben he expected patronage from the Intellectual portion vf the community. Signor Blitz at the Society Library.?The week is drawing to an end, and with it will be finished this present visit of Signor Bliti to our city. He is so wel' known as a delightful and amusing performer in his line> that we need only mention that he is now among us. Christy's band of Ethlopeans are performing at Troy Herr Alexander is at Bleecker Hall, Albany. Cliy Intelligence. Visit or Go* French to the Navy Yard.?Governor French and suite of Illinois, aooompanied by Col. Oakley, vUlted the Navy Yard yesterday. They were received by Captain MoKeever, who, with Captain Hudson escorted the party on board thelLne-of-b*ttle-ship North Carolina, where they were received in a very handsome manner by Captain Nicholls. On their departure, tbe usual salute was fired. Altogether, the visit and the reception, were very pleasant and agreeable. Oovernor French and Col. Oakley were delighted with what they saw. Municipal Compliment.?At the solicitation of the Common Council, the officer* of the Sardinian frigate, now lying in our harbor, accompanied a Committee of the two Boarda on a visiting excursion to the public Institutions of the city yesterday. Aa a compliment to our distinguished guests, three flags were hoisted on the City Hall all day, one of which was Italian. When the party reached the Lunatlo Asylum, they found some excellent refreshments prepared for them, which they disposed of, amid the flow of soul. Tbade in ArrLcs.?We haTeseen a splendid specimen of Newtown pippins, from the Pelham farm, Ulster oounty, New York. It is said that one hundred barrels of these magnlfloent apples are now shipping from Boston for China. We believe this is t be first shipment ever made of this excellent fruit to that distant part of the globe. The trade with China in apples may yet be equal to that with England. The Cuitom House ?New light has broken in on the Custom House The Custom House of this olty 1* probably the most ill contrived building ever erected by the United States. For the sake of an imposing rotunda, all oomlort and oonvenlenoe hate been sacrificed. Even in this rotunda candles are often required in the middle of the day?so wretchedly is it lighted. The Collector, however, baa recently caused the top lights -or rather the ton darkness, to be taken out, and the light to be let In. " Let there be Ught," was the word, and there Is-a little more. Therefore we advise the publio, and all those whem It may concern, that the duties and business of the Custom House of this city will hereafter be administered Id all the light that oan be got; and if merchants cannot now see their way clear to pay their duties in the rotunda of the Custom House, they must send them to the Bonded Warehouse, and warehouse them. There is light there. The Weathe* ?"Jaok Frost," it was yesterdav announced on 'change, had paid us his first visit for the season, that morning. In the vicinity of Long Island.
