. TH] ??*??* Ha 5041 TbealrlcU and SI uslml. Pin* Theatrc.?The grand new ballat of '' Aamo deus" was prodnned last night at the Park, with all the advantages of fin? aoenary, splundid dresaes, and propyl Lies, and most of all, first rata arliitet to fill the part?, and a most num*rou* and fashionable audience to witness them MUa. Hangy wu the Flnrinda of the e\ening Mias Vallee, Meesra Weilhoff and Rouxary, were the Marietta. Asmodeua and Cleophas of the pleoe. The whole pieoe wh moat tmequivneaUv aaocessful ? t'in rations dances by Vile Slangy were performed in tbe aplondid style which thia lady is so distinguished for in ordar that aome idea may be fi rmed of the character of thia pit:o?, we will give a alight sketch of t.he pint, though no on* who witnessed It last night at tha P?rk, ceiild fail to understand the action of the pleca. The pantonine, aa wall at the danoing of Mil*. B a part, was moat admirably given, and Metani WeilholT and Bnuxary w-re el?o verv excellent. The following la the plot of this iBt?r*ai.lDg ballet: Cl'ophas, a.' young student of Sal&uiai.oa. ia at Madrid daring rartiival season, and one evening he goes to the ntisked ball at the grand theatre The great entices* bis attentions to the ladles meat, drawa bin Into a quarrel, and two jealous rivals provoke him so far as to frre? him to dra* bla sword In one of the saloona of the ball rorm. Tha guards appear, but Cleophas, proUrted by hi? maak, managss to asoape. Me eaoapea over the roef ot the house, and aeeka refuire in a neighboring glaomy laboratory. In defending into it through the windotr. b* unluckily breaks a large vaaa. and Asroodeua. hippy at hia deliverance from prison, pUeea all bit vower at tha disposal of hia liberator. Cleophas whose mind ia atlll tiled with the scenes of the evening. a?ks A?<ned?us to show him the oouatenanaes *f tha t.h r?? fenala naaka with whom he has h?en tir t ug at tha bill. Asmod'ua shows him in turn, flrat a young aempatreaa girl, then a widow of tolerably advanced aga, and fluJly, Florlnda, the flrat ianieut? at the Madrid theatre Cleapbaa tranaported ?ith thla laat damsel.requests Asmodeusta introduce him to her bodily, aa be w'sbea to make love to ber. Asmodeus puts Klorinda into a deep alumb it, and transports bar to the enchanted gardens, whither ha alse oonduota Cleophaa, who, after thla interview, ia Mora violently in iova than ev?r: but Asmodeua wiis?s him to im Klerinda divested of al; adventitious splendor. and oonduets the young man behind t he ioimi of the Madrid Theatre, iu order that he may witness the aat? of her he love*. A certain senor, who loves Florin-la, and become* jealous at the reception tk? give* <'l?ophas, whiltt the scarcely listened to blm. (wear* to buve revenge for her slights by procuring a bad reception tor bar en her appearanoe on tbe stage that evening Florlnda that biting badly received on bar appearance on the stage, and not b?i07 able to support this I humiliation, taints, and Is oarried off to her dressing room. The ballot is interrupted. Oleophas, in dtspair. wishes to eonsels Klorinda; Astnodeus with difisulty follows him; baton bis ronte. falling in with the person who had earned all this diffloulty. he commences by reI venging bis young friend, by using bis snpernatnral powers over aim and oansing the earth to open and wallow him np. Having thns disposed of the rival, be rejoins the two lover*, whom he unites, and transports th< m te bis palaee, where there is a splendid reception given them, and the whole pleoe "loses with a splendid pitdftuaire. La Cyprlotte by MUe. Blangy, Mile Tallee, MM louxary and Wielheff The ballet Is a decided hit and will be performed te-nlgbt with the same cast. The comedy of tbe Nervous Man" preoeded the balI let Brongbam and Bass, as the two prlneipal oharacters, kept the house in excellent humor, and the piece wai heartily applauded. It also will be repeated this evening, as wall as tbe farce of the "Double Bedded Room." Bewiiv Tssitii.?Mr. Dan Marble, the popular and highly talented Yankee comedian, continues to draw good house* at this theatre, and bis jokes and aotiag se< m te be highly relished by all admire?* of his line of eomie acting. The new oomedv. called ' The i People's Candidate," *h repeated last evening, and writ off well, the aadience appearing to be muoh smus d during lis parfermuti. In the course of the evening.

T? marrow evening, Mr. Marbie will ia?k? bia fourth appearance, ia several of bis best pieces, ad aaaaagat thua that of the "Baokwuedsman."

We shall not, therefore, detain our reader* at this Epicurean contemplation. After the repaat, when the cloth was removed, then, in fact, began the business of the evening, and then began to be more agreeably developed the kindly social feelings, warmed Into more active being by the good cheer and delicious libations in which all had been unanimously, and wminr contrndictult, engaged together. " N?n nakii Dvmine," as is usual in English entertainment* of this oharaoter, was not sung; but we forgot to say that before, nd now again at the conclusion of the feast, thanks to the Giver of all good were offered up by a German divine, In a peculiar, solemn.

Hacksl The ooean steamship United States, of which the above la a very aeourate representation, whs built in this city, by Mr Wm. H We^b, for Charts H Marshall, E?q , and others, and went on th? seoond trial trip, on Tuesday morning last. From the time when the keel of this vessel was laid, until the present, the mercantile and nautical world, have taken a great interest In her. When the was designed, it wss the determlnaMou Of all concerned to outstrip every steamship that ever erosisd the Atlantlo, as well in point of speed, as in the amount of tonnage whioh she could oarry. In order'o do so, It required that the builders and projectors should not only study the solence of ship building as it has heretofore been studied, but also to improve upon it as much as possible, nnd carry Into effect the result of their deliberations. In accordance with the results following from those deliberations, Mr. Webb, with Mr. MirBhall. Captain Hacks'.aff, and others, concluded upon adopting a model or frame, diffet lug essentially from any that, has ever before been nsed In steamsh'.p building. Instead cf having the proposed vessel sharp from the water line to the ttnrl?tba plan on which MI Amerloan steamships heretofore htra been built?they oooeluded afterdue asd careful examiaatioo, comparison. and deliberation, to construct b?r with a flat bottom, and with what i? tailed one?Tfl points. in contradistinction to convex points No sooner had they matured their plana, and announced their determination of building this steamship in th s manner, that the idea was promulgated that the v?ps*l to be built as (he would be. according to thll plan, would be a decided failure, and instead of redeemingtbe American charaoter, in the way of ship building, would disgrace it. Confident, however. of tho correctness of the resnit ot their cogitations on the subjeck/ortlfled by the opiaion? of Sir.
