At (even o'elook yesterday evening, a numerous and highly respectable oompany began to assemble in tbe ant?-room at Rathbun'a Hotel, in Broadway. This was a dinner given in compliment to Lieut. James Decatur Potter, on bia return from Mexloo, after sharing in the sufferings, tbe wounds, aad the glories of our victorious army. A band of musio, striking up its animated tunes, led tbe way to the dinner room, and tbe ooinpany being seated. fail to upon the rioh rep&st The oletb being removed, tbe chairman read several letters received by the committee of invitation in reply to letters of invitation despatched by them. These let-, tera were received in Wms highly flattering to tbe invited guest. Tbe following were some among the names in reply to the invitations of the committee?Mr. Weiker, Secretary of the Treasury, Mayor Bradv. Major Raynes, of Governor's Island. Prosper M. Wetmore, Icaac Molver, W. J. Hudson. General Ewlng, Ueo<-ge P. Morrip, General Storms, Jamea T. Brady. The President thin read the following regular toasts: ? ' The President of the United States," (which was draok amid loud and enthusiastic obeers and hurras ) "The Uovernor o' the State of New York." " The Mayor of New York " " The American Army," waa next toasted and drank, with music and great applause The President of the meeting, John B. Haskin, Ksq , then rose, and after some very happy and pertinent remarks. which were greatly 'applauded, gavo the followin/, which was the fifth regular toast: " Oar guest, J. Decatur Potter?We welcome you? thrice welcome you ? baok to your native otty You left us, a noble son ! ? your valor on the field of battle has given you a prloeless manhood ! May your summer be long, and your evening serene " The toast being given, the muslo played the tune of, "See Ml* Conquering Hero oomes," in strains of exciting melody; whereupon Lieut. Potter arose and addressed the company as follows : ? Grntlrmrn? In rising to respond to the toast just drank, I am embarrassed beyond expression; my feelings, but not my lips, can alone translate the sentiments of my heart. llaving just returned from the seat of war, somewhat disabled, I am illy calculated to entertuin you by any remarks; indeed, previous to my arrival, l bad thought that I would be enabled to retire, to th* privaoles of life, and there recruit my health; but soaroely had I set my font within my native oity, when I discovered that there was no rest for me. Krom the evening of my return, to the present time, It has been oontinual scene of congratulation and joy Scenes like these, have amply repaid ma lor uny little hardship I may have enoountered with the regiment to whioh l had the honor of being attached. During my sojourn m Mexloo. I Indulged In the fond hope, that one day I should return to the home of my ohlldhood, and shake by the hand my friends and acquaintances, but never, in my most ardent moments, did I auticlpate an hour like this?never did l suppose that the friends of my youth, the companions of my boyhood, would gather around to welcome my return in this way?never did i suppose that they would be even rivalling each other in this, their manifestation of friendship. Never did I Imagine that my memory would be refreshed by such an oocaslon, nor the reminiscences of the past, invoked, by the presence of those, who, in bygone days, were wont to join In the j oys of my youth To me, gentlemen, l assur* you, it is a scene of which I feel proud, and never can I, whether in publio or private life, erase its Impression from my memory. Whatever praise may be bestowed upon my feeble efforts while aiding in the defvuoe of my country, in a foreign I Anil mirrnnnHail all |V>. ,1... ,1 it. inveterate enemy could desire, allU truth and justice constrain me to declare that I did but my duty. It was | the late of the 1st regiment of New York volunteers to have suffered beyond comparison, and with truth they oan say. " They came, they saw, they conquered." To the regiment, and not to any Individual member, must be attributed the glory and the pride of having done ltd duty. From Its chivalrlo commander down to the pri- j vat*, all, all have done their duty: to My less, to say more, would be injustice to one, to all. Their glory is the glory of the regiment; It enclrolea its brow; t&at circle cannot be changed without destroying ita beautiful proportions, its truth-like symmetry. They have Hustainnd the flag; they have not disgraoed their State Would that the remnant of that regiment were here, to participate in this banquet of the heart; would that they orere here, that you might behold premature veterancy, 1 the campaigners in the war of Mexico. But enough? their fame is of their country?they require no eulogium at my bauds. But, in conclusion, gentlemen, and to you the afsocialw of my boyhood, whose presence ooojures up the rtooileotions of the pass, accept the grateful and hearttelt thanks of one who can appreciate, hut not express, the impression your ktnduess has made upon him The following toasts were then given in their order, and urank with loud applause : ? '-The American Navy?She o ourts a long odda to develope her power?abe oommanda but a vessel for ever; year of her existenoe, yet laughs defiance at the world " Music?"The Star Spangled Banner." ' Our Generals In Moxioe?Ably Tying with the (toman age." Music?"March to the Battle Field " "The Volunteer* of our Army, fever ready, and 'never surrender.' " Musio?"Taylor's Quickstep." ''The American Eagle? The idol of the warrior's thought, The emblem lii the van " Music?"The Flaunting Flag of Libert*." "The Gallant Dead?A grateful people mourn their loss?their epitaphs are inscribed upon the hearts of their countrymen." Music?' Dead March " " The Yankee?An embodiment of all raoes, 'all sciences, all kinds, all notions-and a very good model at that." Musio?"Yankee Doodle " ''Lord Chatham's prophecy fulfilled?t>ery knee on earth now bows to the precepts isouloated In the Declaration of Independence." Music?"Awake to Glory." "Woman?Man's first, man's last, man's heat support." Musio Let the Toast be dear Woman." Mr. Judion, commonly called ' Ned Buntline," addressed the meeting In some brief and happy remarks, returning thanks on behalf of the Navy for the honor doae them. Mr. Judson oonoluded with offering a tout highly complimentary to Lieut Sweeny. who, with his friend, Lieut. Potter, was, of oourie, present on the occasion. Lieut Swerkt returned thanks in a happy and felicitous strain Colonel Burnktt then returned thanks in a speech which was received with delight, and olloited reiterated applaute. After a number pf other volunteer toasts, at a late hour the company separated, and the honored guest was escorted to his home arid quarters. The Presentation of a SwortI to Major Dyckinan. A select and numerous meeting of the friends of tills distinguished offl-jer, who has reaped a fair proportion of the national laurels in the Mexioan war, met last evening at Tammany Hal), for the purpose of paying a suitable compliment to the gallant Major, and presenting him with a sword, epaulettes, and a suitable entertainment.

Major Dvckmii replied as follows : ? " Sir Accept my warmest acknowldgments for the very flattering oompllraent that vou have been pleased to pasH upon me, and I accept with pleasure, t.heso testimonials of regard from my former associates Believe me, sir. no time can efface from ray memory the kindness I have ever experienced at their hands I am not ablest o dwell upon the subject; my feelings will not admit of it To meet the approbation of my fellow-countrymen Is the wsrmest wish of my heart, and while God spares me. my best energies shall be devoted to the Interest of my native land " The sword is a magnificent specimen of art, on whloh is the fellowlng inscription ' Presented ,to Msjor (?*asrT Dvcrmaw. by hit former associates In the Register's otBce of the city and oounty of New York, In approbation of hii gallant conduct In the war with Mexico Deo 14, 1817 " Col Burnett, Capt H.

Mr. Wetmork then said. that in oonsequence of the increaae of membera within the laat five days. ihecommittee of management bad determined to add to the catalogue of piotures twenty-three additional paintinga, which announcement wu reoeivod with much gratification. Mr. Horned thon read the report of the committee of management tor the paat year, from which we gathered, that at the laat annual meeting the number of pictures distributed was one hundred and forty-Ave, and at the present meeting the number will be two hundred and seventy two,and fifty medals in silver.and two hundred and fifty in bronze.aod there will ulso be diftrlbuted a beautifully exeouted engraving Tbe receipts have been fortyfive thousand dollars. Onehundred and sixty three additional necretaries have beea appointed during the year, making the whole number three hundred and three, and fresh correspondents have been established in every part of the oountry. The report gave a very llattering account in cither respects, of the welfare or the society, and reoom mended among other things, tbe purchase of the fee ef the premises occupied by the Union on Broadway, aa a gallery The oommittee of management have exercised their beet judgment in the selection and purohase of works of art, and though they oannot claim to givo general satisfaction, they have honestly sought to disL charge their duty, and not a single pioture of merit, except such for which exorbitant charges were demanded, was not purobased They have given preference to original picture*, and particularly to >uoh as distinguished this country from nil others The report concluded by referrlug to the objects for which the American Art Union was framed, and stated tbat from the progress it has been made, there is no doubt the annual receipts will soou amount to the sum ot lit ty thousand dollars ; and that in the opinion of the trustees, artiets would be Justified in attempting higher sulijeots thau they have heretofore done, and regretted that so little attention had been paid to hlstorio art. (Some big-ing and applause ) 1'hilif Ho*k, E?q , then rose, and said that it was his duty to put the <(uesticn on the acceptance and report of the committee, which was dona, and the report was aooepted. The treasurer's report was then read, from whloh we learn that the rooelpls were as follows : ?

Havemeyer bad kindly consented Co ouperiot?nd the distribution, and that two young ladies, Miss Mary Karley and Misa Maria llardell (applause) had likowipe consented to draw the ballots The pictures are to remain on the walls till the thirty-first oi the present month. As soon as this announcement was made, Miss Farley and Miss llardell, Interesting young ladles oi about twelve years of age, were conducted to the platform fur the purpose of conferring good luck on all, whose names they should draw from th? wheels Tfie distribution was made iu the following manner: Wltbin one large wheel, similar to those used In lotteries, were a number of cards numbered, so as to curreapond with the number of subscribers, whose names were entered in a book with a number attaohed. These eards were drawn by one of the young ladies, and the number aunounotd. This gave the person's name. In another wheel were two hundred and seventy-two oards. uumbared from on* upwards, whloh were drawn in the name mauner by the other young lady. The second car4 denoted the number of the pioture, to whioh the person w>.s entitled. The following Is the result of the drawing, and we romarked that whenever an oflleer of the army or navy, or a lady was deolared to have drawn a picture, It was followed with marked applause.

Count Bresson, Ambassador from the ( ourt of Kranoe. the King of the Two Mlolliea. hu died at N'?- j pine He waa found in hia bed at d o'clock in the inoru- 1 log of the 'id inst, bathed in hia blood, with a largo 1 wound in hia throat, supposed to have been intlioted with j a riaor. l'hia awful newa waa brought to Prance by the , Ocean ateam boat, which haa arrive! at Marseilles We have no other details " Our private letter* from Naplea, however, furnlah the ' particulars of thia lamentable crime "Count 1)reason," savs our cm respondent, "had hia | formal audience of the King of Napl*s to pres?nt hit oredentlala aa Ambassador of Franca, the day befure y?sterday (Sunday, 31st ult); he was graciously received, and ! retired apparently pleased Next day he paid a nam- | ber of visits, and in the evening w?nt to the Opera with out evincing throughout the day or evening the slightest symptom of insanity or excitement On reaching home, ' however, he waa observed to be agitated Hia exolti'- j meut increased, and he oonttnued walking about his apartment until 4 o'clock, when, all at ouce, the fall of a heavy body was heard The Countess Ureaaon ran into ' hia room, and found htm lying la a pool of blood, which uoweu irom a tTignttul wound In tu.< throat, tuected l>y , a rasor. which wad found close to hlra Instant alarm was given, and almost immediately the surgeon of tb- | Brit nh Legation arrived, but th?

Thii wan attributed to chattrin i at the refusul of the King to appoint him to either the I British or the Russian embassy. This former he par ticularly desired lie made his will, and arranged all ' his affairs before bis departure. which occtsious a sur- j liiise that he contemplated destroying hliuse,f Never- ] theless, he appeared perfectly colieuted throughout his journey, and it was understood, transacted important business at Turin mrouts Notwithstanding appearancts, however. It Is bellryed here tuat the disappointments just ullu'led to pruyed upon his mind, and produced the mental disease which prompted him to the fatal act The Union Moncrchiqur states that the circumstances attending the early career of this untoitunate gentle man, as given in the C?ni(i(utionmI and other papers, are inoorreot According to this journal the late ootint was confidential secretary ofthe i'rince de Pollgnac when the revolution of 1830 broke out, and upon the departure of the prinoe he became master of a muss of dooudaunts of the highest Importance for Louis Philippe ; among others the confidential letters of the Duke of Orleans to Prince Polignac relative to the will of F erdinand abolishing the Salic law in Spain, to which the duke in view of tho Interests of his family wus at the time strongly onposed. Owing to M Bresson's conduct in the matter, the KiDg became possessed of the paper* referred to. and took the Prlnoe I'olignuo s secretary into his contidenoe. The Con$titulionntl bos the following: ? " Under the restoration Count Bresson was sent to the United Slates as attache, and he there married bis first wife. The different proofs of aptitude which he had the opportunity of giving on several occasions procured for him a mission in South Amerloa, in whieh he was engigod when the revolution of July broke out He did nrt delay his return to F rance, and M de Larochefoucauld. our representative at Berlin, having been obliged to absent hims'If from that residence, Al Bresson was charged to replace him It was at Berlin that M. Bresson really commenced bis diplomatic fortune; he was, it is true, assisted by some fortunate oiroumstances At that period the question of Belgium and Holland divided and threatened the future The Kiencb ministry hesitated to undertake the expedition against Antwerp. M Bresson, who at Berlin stood well with the Court, was utile to irive the Krench government the assurance that the attack on the oitadel of Antwerp would not be considered a oase of war by the European powers. I n consequenoe of the consideration which he enjoyed in the capital of Prussia, he had the title of Minister or Fran je to the government of Berlin conferred ou hlin. In this new position he was not useless to the dynasty which had divined in bin one of its ablest servants it waa M Bresson who was charged, by two suooesslve ministries, to negotiate and oonolude the marriage of the Duke of Orleans. M. Bresson seemed predestined to this sort of intimate and family affairs, for the two great points of his diplomatic career, are two princely marriages Count Bresson has left at Berllii, the most afleotlonate s< uvenirs The late Kinji Fredwrlok Wllllm 111., It is said, considered Him as a friend, and treated him with eo much familiarity as to go to vtslt him at the hotel of the Embassy, where he sometimes passed whole evening* lu playing at whist Our readers will not have forgotten the brilliant recaption wMcb the Preach Princes obtained at Berlin eu their journey to Trussia.? This reception was attributed in great part to the Influence whbh M. Bresson enjoyed. Krom Berlin M. Bres son went to Madrid as ambassador. We have no need to call to luind the recent event* which have signalited the conduot of our diplomacy in 8pain.? Our readers, besides, ara well acquainted with our opinion on the Spanish marriages Vesterday, in making known some of the circumstances which signvllsed the stay of M. Bresson In France, we omitted one, which is not withoat Importance On the last ohangea in the cabinet of the 'i9tb October, overtures were made to M. Bresson >o induce him to consent to accept the porttolio of the Marine M. Bresson refused. founding his refusal on th? few chances of duration which the ministerial replastering up presented The refusal, and still more the terms in whioh it was oouched, pleased very little, as will be Imagined, those who had taken it to heart to prop up the wavering fortunes of the cabinet. The cabinet, obliged to recruit Itself as It oould, called M. de Montebrllo from Naples, who resigned himself to the succession of M. da Mackau As to M Bresson he had to go to Naples to replace the same M. de Montebello, who had just aoceptt-d the refused portfolio. It was not without feeling bitter mortification that M Bresson deoided on golug to occupy at Naples an inferior post to that whlcn he had already filled We may consider this olroumstance, and the grief which It causad, as having oooaaloned the fatal event which has prematurely terminated bis career.? We have teen inlorined of au affecting fact respecting M Bresson, which deserves to b? sta'ed b?r?. By h.? iirst wife he had a eon, whose infirmities prevent him from leading an active life, and whose means of subsistence it was consequently particularly neoersurv to secure. Home time before his departure from Paris M. UrfOAon at length succeeded in settliug some aUaira of interest which ih? death of bis wife had left him, nod which had remained in suspense till then Belore leaving for Naples, he caused iuu of about 1 i.'> 'XXir to he placed out for that ion "Never," aaid he to one of hi* frieoda, 'never bar* I bran happier than 1 am to-day. for the fortune of my poor sou is secured!" Whatever may be our opinion of tbe Wat diplomatic acta of M Ureason, it ia not less true that bia death leavea a void in tile jtm tonntl of our embassies which it will be difficult to fill up. In the midst of the difficult ciruurn atanoea iu which Italy ia placed, tbe experience and moderation of M. Drrtiaon mUbt have exerted a happy influence on the determinationa of the i ourt of Naples, capecially if he had not hail to atruggle agalnat the ayatem adopted by M Uuiiot " It remain* to announce a m"it extraordinary and leaa appalling event, a strange coincidence We shall auff*r the Journal dtt littah to daacribe tha terrible affair, aud aball add 10 the aooount of the tranlactlon, which I take from that paper, a few worda only : ?
