The officer* commanding in California and Oregon ar* charged with establishing the posts and garrisons within their respective commands, but the position* to be permanently occupied should not be determine 1 nntil after n military reconnoissance by eompetent and experienced officers. The commanders of departments Nos. 10 and 11 will make their reports to, and correspond direct with the Adjutant General's office, Washington. One offletr of engineers, and one or more of topographical engineers, will be ordered to report to tho commanding officers of departments No. 10. (California.) and No. 11, (Oregon ) reflectively. Two offlrers of topographical engineers will report to the commanding officer of department No. 9, (New Mexico ) One officer of engineers, and two of topographical engineers, will report to the commanding officer of department No. 8, ((Texas,) at such time and place as he may designate. IV. And the Tresidcnt has further judged proper tbst the two military geographical divisions be commanded respectively by the two major generals of the army, until otherwise directed. Major General Scott will accordingly assume eomrnand of the astern division, and MaOor General Taylor willbsontiniie in command of the western division of the army. The headquarters of the eastern division will be pstnbllshed at, or in the vicinity of New Vork; and the headquarters of the western division at, or in tbe^vicinity oi^New Orleans.

The officer highest In rank of the line of the army on duty, in any military department or post, will command the tame, unlea* otherwise specially directed in order* by authority of the President. V. To the duties devolved upon commander* of division* by the General Regulations for the Army, (article 11,) are superadded the duties enjoined upon the i. commander of the Army, (artiole 10.) so far as the game may be found to be applicable; and all other functions pertaining to the General ('nmmanding-inCbicf. under army regulations, with the like limitation, will also be exercised by the two major general* within their respective division*. VI. The numerous applications to the Keoretary of V *' render It necessary to devolve the subjeet of discharges upon the major generals of division; accordingly such applications hereafter will not be considered at the War Department, except in case* of pension and certificate* of ordinary disability. VII. The recruiting service will be regulated by the Adjutant General of the army, under the direction of p^ibe Secretary of War. Muster roll*, monthly reports. j gr fee., enjoined by the 13th and lOtn or the rnie* and articles of war, and ? Oeneral Regulations of the [ E N E MORNI Army," will, us at preseut. be forwarded to the office of the Adjutant General, Washington. Military correspondence, and offlieial transactions with the War Department relative to the army, will be conducted, as usual, tkri ugh the Adjutant General. 1 VIII In assigning regiments to particular depart* t ments and dietilets of country. the President desires that consideration be bad to their former service in lees favored legions, witii ajiewto better stations, (as far as the convenienee of tbo service msy permit,) in j the new srrsugeuo-nt of the troops. All details neces- , sary for the exe, i.tion of this order will be directed by th>- major uii< r? 1.- of division.

Good order, thorough Instruction, and the maintensnce of discipline and subordination, are in- ( dispensable to the efficiency of the peace establishment. " It is the intention of the government, that there be established in every regiment or corps, and throughout the army ax one corps, a gradual and universal subordination or authority, which, without loss of force, shall be even. mild, and paternal ; and which, founded in justice and firmness, shall maintain all subordinates in the strictest observance of duty," too. ?

[From the London Times, Aug. 21.] We have been favored with very graphic and particular information of an enterprise successfully undertaken by a British force against the Kftag of Apollonla. and if the oircumstances attending the defeat and capture of his Majesty are yet but little known in ] this country, we can only ascribe the obscurity of suoh 1 interesting facts to the precedence taken by the fall < of more historical dynasties nearer home. Few read- ! ers, perhaps, will be the worse for some preliminary \ hints respecting the geography of the scene to which we refer. On the west coast of Afrioa. in the old empire or territory of Ashantee, and within the political ' Ken 01 i/tpe toan lastie, is situated the aboriginal kingdom of Apollonla. recently governed by a personage of marked character and undoubted grandeur, hut whore proper name does not eeem to hare transpired North of hla Majeaty'a dominions ilea the province of Warsaw, to the eaat is Amalfi, and close under his lee lies Brandrnburgh. It is now our duty to recount the incidents which drew upon his Apollonian Majesty (he vengeance of the British arm Regardless of anything save his own caprices, this monarch systematical! v waylaid and massacred the Warsaw people on their road to Cape Coast : by unmlstakeable acts of profanation he symbolised his conlempt of the British flag ; he ill-treated British meichautmen, captured twelve naturalised subjects belonging to the King of Holland, and uniformly detained (and it was said devoured) any couriers or heralds despatched to him in deprecation of his practices The Lieutenant Governor of Cape Coast, Mr. Winniett. at length resolved on bringing thetyrant ts | reason, and the llutch settlement of Axim being fixed as the place of rendezvous, a force of f>600 was assembled there a month or two ago. It is but just to remark, however, that this "army of the Alps.''though so numerically imposing, was hut an aggeomeration of volunteers round a single company of the 1st West India Regiment?the natives all joining with hearty unanimity in the projected expedition. Atemboo, the capital of Apollonia. lay about twenty miles westward of Axim. and two considerable rivers were interposed between the king and his enemies. After a day's rest and refreshment, the troops crossed the Ancobra In two divlsious. asM in excellent order, with tbeadmiraj ble prov ision of a rocket battery attached to each dlvlsbn, and 60rounds of ball-cartridge in each man's pouch. After experiencing nnd surmounting some resietance. the army at length reached Atemboo, a fact which instantly decided the king upon retiring with his treasures to the Konigsberg of his dominions?a black, fetid swamp, surrounded with bush, in wh'ch his Majesty sunk himself as magnanimously as the ancient hero in the marshes of Minturnic, leaving orders with his executioners (a strong and numerous body) to remain behind nnd despatch as many of his faithful subject, as thry conld contrive to meet with. Considering the character of this mandate, it is not surprising that the commander of the invading army received pressing applications from the inhabitants ol' Atemboo to be permitted to assist in the capture of their sovereign- a petition to which he iriostjudicleusly acceded. The result of the search by these sairacious spies was the discovery ef his Majesty's retirement in J tne swamp, and of 120 miserable wretches, heavily J Ironed, who were destined for an approaching sacri- ' flee, and who had been carried off by his Majesty as a more precious treasure than all the rum and calico in ' his palace. With these conspicuous trophies of con- ' quest the army of the Ancotra then returned home wards, after a total loss of four killed and thirteen ' wounded. Mr. Drodle Crulckshank, who had com- ' manded the second division of Irregulars in the expedition, was left behind to organise and superintend a j provisional government, which, it is gratifying to add, j nan been recognised with the utmost promptitude by * the neighboring powers, and confident hopes are entertained that amicable relations will he established between Apollonla and Cape Coast without the formalities of a mediation or the disturbance of u debate. The king was carrteiloff to head-quarters amidst execrations like those which astonished Charles Albert In Milan, and the Colonial Offlce, we hear, has been apprised that his Majesty has been duly committed for trial at the approaching gaol delivery In the British settlement. Nick 0\kki.ani> Trip.?itt. Kev. Dr. Meis, Bishop of Vanoouvtr. in Oregon, arrived at Dubuque, Iowa, on the 22d ult. lie left Walla Walla on the a)th of March last, and erossed the Rooky Mountains alone and on foot. In many places he says the snow was 20 ' feet deep. He is on his way to Europe.?St. Lovii R?p 1 W Y( NG EDITION.?THUI Tlicat ileal and Niulral. I'm* Tiikithk. ? We attended the I'arklast evening, far the purpose of seeing Mr. Hamblln in oneofhig beet characters, that of Coriolanns, in the tragedy of that name, which we bare always thought one of hii best. Am we had not seen him for many year* in this part, we were anxious to ascertain whether or not this turned actor had deteriorated. We are happy to say, that, so far from his having fallen off. he never perlormed better than he did last evening. Coriolanus is a difficult character to represent, yet in the hands of Mr. iiainblin it was done full justice to The remaining parts of this tragedy were ably performed by the several persons to whom they were allotted; but a rense of justioe obliges us to make especial note of Mr Hield's personation of Tullus, which was a masterly piece of acting. Of Signora Clocca and Signer Neri, who danced the 1'olKa National?, between the lrsg? dy and the farce of -'Simpson U Co.,'' which formed the conclusion of the evening's amusements, it is almost unnecersarv to speak. It is sufficient to say. that they acquitted themselves in their usual mauner, and that, ot course, thev were called UDOn to reneat that lavoril eldalire We understand. that the celebrated Monplalser I nil rt Iroujir are engaged at the Park land that they will eoon make their appearance there in tbo!/<a//rt of Fsmerelda. Bow fry Theatre.?J. H. Hall's beuelit last eveDing wax very well attendeJ, and though there was roine disappointment in consequence of the lndlspoition of Mies Taylor, and her inability to perform her parte, everything went off well. Miss Fauny Oordon, young lady who !e well and favorably known to th* theatre going cltitens of New York, took her part in i he splendid drama of the " Destruction of the lias tile," and Mr*. Phillips, replaced her in the " Kolund lor an Oliver." The," Destruction of the llastilv" was played first, and as the piece is now in good working trim, every thing went off most smoothly. Mr. Clarke's per.-c ation of the bloody Itobespierre, is a most capital piece of acting ; and by way of a comic set off to the piece. Winans, as the travelling Cockney, made much fun. His rescue of the Captain of the Guard from the sword of the Revolutionists, wasu most ludicrous affair. The lablraux and scenes in this piece are most splendid, and as they are arranged, form the most effective and beautiful pictures. The storming and destruction of the Bastile. the death of Itobespierre, andallotherincidents of the piece, makeit the most remarkable theatrical display that nas ever been produced at the Bowery. Recent events in France, which at one period threatened to lead to as bloody scenes as those enacted in Robespierre's time, give this piece a peculiar Interest.

Conrad's tragedy, entitled " Jack Cade, or the Kentish Rebellion," was the principal piece selected for the occasion, and was presented by a highly talented cast. The various incidents, the plot and design, are admirably adapted for the taste and spirit of the age, when the aspirations for human freedom all over the world have taken so strong a hold upon popular feeling among the masses. As 1; Jack Cade." disguised as Aylmere, the hero of the piece. Mr. Forrest's powerful and highly wrought personations drew forth the most rapturous applause from all parts of the bouse; and at the close of the seoond aot many of the audience loudly cheered his extraordinary efforts in the part. Marlanna. by Miss F. Wailack, was an excellent performance; and the audience frequently evinced their high appreciation of her admirable personation of the part, by frequent applause. Miss W. is a young lady of high promise, and has won golden opinions sinoe her appearance here. The entertainments for this evening will be found hiehlv attreetlwe Niblo'i Opkra.?Another of the great works of the Italian school was brought out here last evening, the 'Lucia di Lammerinoor," of Donizetti. This opera lias been played in this country several times ; at ralmo's, in the days of Uorghese and Antognlnl, at the Aftor l'lace. last winter, with Signorine Barili, Truffl, and Bcnedetti; but the perl'ornianoe of M. and Madame Laborde throws all the previous doings with Donizetti's most cherished work iutothe shade. Krom the beginning to the end of the opera, the attention of the spectators was chained, and though the " Uenedettists" weie very numerous, we saw many ? Labordists." whose numbers, in fact, were still greater. We may ray, without exaggeration, that never, since this opera was Hist brought up in this country have wo ever heard a " Lucia'' better performed thau that of Madame Laborde. The beautiful " aria" of the first act could not be in better hands, and she invested in it all the train and/iori/urei of grace of which it is susceptible. Her duet with her lover was charming ; that with her brother, sung with great feeling; her acting in both, being marked with many features of intelligence.? The aria of madness stands out in the lyrical drama as a very difficult piece, and Madame L. rendtred it with the most admirable delineation, richness of style, and superb method. It is useless to say that during the whole performance, Madame Laborde was received with unbounded applause, and called before the ourtain at the end of each act, where she was presented with many bo<iuets. As for Mr. Laborde, by his powerful voice and undaunted energy, he established himself at once a favorite with the public. Being an accomplished musician, be played his part in the most DhAiaaterifttic manner. His duet with Siffnop Rene. ventano, afforded him a splendid triumph, as well as the finale of the second act. and that of the scene of the grave-yard, in whioh, by the true and energetic management of his voice, bis tuaporlamrnH and trilltt be made us remember the classical tones of the famed singer Kublni, the only actor who ever gave true justice to the Immortal work of Donizetti. Signor Beneventano, with bis splendid organ, was nevertheless very inferior in his rolr, and the furious ebullition of his part was as poor as it was bombastic. We need not speak of the other nullities employed in the performance, but it is our duty to mention the deficiencies 3f the orchestra, in which the stringed instruments lid not accord with the wind instruments, and made the singers labor under great uneasiness. Tonight the entertainments will consist of the first appearance of the Dwarf Brothers, the comic piece of Mr. and Mrs. Peter White,'' together with the farce if " Sketches in India," in which Tom Placidc, John Sefton, and Mrs. Cramer, will appear. A great bill, which will attract a great house. Natiowai. Theatre.?The lively farce of the " Kiss n the Dark'' was the tint piece performed last evenng, and the numerous mistakes and troubles which '.bat unfortunate kiss entailed on Mr. Solim Pettibone, who was so comically played by C. Burke, kept the kudience in a continual roar from the beginning to the end of the piece. These little farces are most caplallv played at the National, and Burke figures largely n most of them, much to the satisiaction of the auliences, as he is a general favorite. The " Mysteries knd Miseries'' was played next. Mose and the gamblers. Sykesey and his '-purtygal." Captain Tobin, laak Cirole and their friends?the individuals " who sxiet upon the broad principle of equal rights," not forgetting the two Lizes, big and little; all did their parts as oapitally as usual. The dance house row, the tcenes in the Old Brewery, and poor old Precise'* experiments in philantrophy, which lead to a regular ' muss," all aflorded a much fun as usnal. Such is the rush to see this drama, that in all probability it will have to be played for weeks to come, in order to give all a chance to see it. We would advise every one who wishes to see a true picture of certain kinds of life in New Vork, to visit tne National, they oan never see a more faithful representation. The arrangements for Ibe accommodation of visitors at the National are very complete; to avoid all disappointment, however, it is well for parties to secure their seats during the dajr, as nun uuurr ib nwfl JU1UU Up aiiur 1116 0p611llll{ Or 106 loon.

In describing he quality of voice of this extraordinary and fascinating chanltutt, the writer said that she was the best mezzo " soprano he bad heard for a long time; but, rem the proverbial perversity of printers' devils, the merto." in the typical transition, was changed to ni gro' - a quality ol voice which has hitherto, we beleve, escaped the notice of the great masters. We are xceedingly sorry for such a mistake, however unconciously committed; and, as the only atoaemont that ould be offered, we believe the unfortunate blunderer rae Instantaneously dismissed. Such a typical error, icwever, could have no other effect, we apprehend, ban to excite a smile at the blundering blockhead rho committed it; for. to those who have had the good nrtune to see M'lle Lovarney. it Is unnecessary to ay that, In addition to her qualifications as onsof th a eat and most accomplished singers of the present | IRK I tSDAY, SEPTEMBER U day, .she ban the additional attraction of being one of the moat elegrant. graceful, and beautiful ladies that bare ever appeared before an audience in this city. Tarkrnaclk.?Tub Moravian Simjkrv?The im- 1 menee eucoeaa which thle accomplished bund of per- | formers bae achieved einoe the commencement of their entertainments in this city. is evideneed every uight by the crowded and fashionable audience* which resort to the Tabernacle. On laet night, the concert was rich and varied, and in every respect calculated to please the most fastidious. The accomplished and fascinating Mademoiselle Lovurney sung in (ierumn, Knglieb, Scotch, and Irish ; and the unanimous and frequent bursts of applause which every successive effort elicited, is the best and most convincing testimony that could be adduced of the extraordinary abilities of this lady, and of the appreciation in whicii she is held by the elite of New York. Zorer, St.. pel, and Unease, acquitted themselves, as usual, to the delight of the company, who gave expression to their feelings in loud demonstrations of applause. The powerful Instrument of wood and straw, called the Xilocordeon so ingeniously constructed and so admirably played by that astonishing performer, Stu-pel, was again introduced to the audience, and the ourlosity which it excited was only equalled by the delight which whs felt at this novel and extraordinary mods ' of producing " the concord of sweet sounds." We trust that tills splendid and talented company will be 1 induced to prolong their stay another week, for we 1 feel assured, from the increasing popularity with j which they are received at every successive appear- | not* tltal their great talents and acknowledged supo rlority over the ordinary class of concert performers, will, if generally ascertained, receive for some time longer, the nightly homage of immense numbers who are not at prtaent aware of their attractions.

Mrr.Tiiso or run Oi.o IIiMtr.a Committkk.?The I announcement having been made that the old hunker , cimmittee would meet last night, one of the reporters : of the Herald was at his post, at the appointed hour, to | note the proceedings. It was hinted, before the assem- | bting of the committee, that it was the intention of . that body to dense means t/>, eti,w removal of those ! now in the CustomHouse.and other government officers in the city, and supply their places with the faithful of hunkerism. When our reporter arrived, he found the room of meeting brilliantly illuminated with gas, and decorated with banners emblematical of the party. On the east side of the room was a fuii portrait of General Butler, in full uniform, standing besiud cannon, while upon the groundwork were painted cannon balls. On the south end, the whole width of the room, was a banner, in the oentro of which was painted a representation of the goddess of liberty, and on the extreme right, a full length portrait of General Cass, looking intently upon a scroll and book, which Is said to contain the constitution and the laws of hunkerism, though it looked very much like a oopy of the bible. That, of course, it was not, for things of j more importance to them than futurity engrossed all I their minds About eight o'alook, the committee as- ! sembled, and our reporter was Tery politely informed that the proceedings would be of a private character, { and none others than the committee would be allowed i to remain, which deprives us of the power to give the ! i<iuhtuuj(ji> m nir jiuuiiu. it wrh cbiu inai miters on tbe subject of tbe object of the meeting, from important political and offlciul personages in Washington, would be read. No doubt tney contained salutary adrice to the hunkers of New York; and it is probable that, before long, some of the present free soil inoum- | bents, like our reporter, will be politely requested to leave their places. Mkv.tihi! in Brooklyn.?There was a meeting in Brooklyn last evening, for the relief of the sufferers by the late Are. Several resolutions were adopted - one lor the destitute to call upon tte committee, another that the subscription books bo signed by-the committee. Messrs. Oeorge JIall. Seth I.ow, Wm. S. Paoker, William M. Harris, and Kdwln Anthony, are the i committee. The Sun Bvildinc on Kirk.?A Are broke out about ! half-past five o'clock yesterday afternoon, in the eel- ; lar of the Sun building, caused by the explosion of I the gasometer. A boy approached It with a candle, i when, by some accident or leak, the gas took fire, and tbe gasometer exploded a 1th a tremendous crash. 1 Several persons were standing upon the sidewalk at | the time, who were very much alarmed, and ran for \ life, expecting the whole front of the building would : fall. Tbe manufacturing gas was re-commenced in ' that building, yesterday, which resulted in the explo- | elon, and setting on lire several bundles of paper. ! The firemen were promptly on the spot, and put out 1 tbe flames before any material damage had been sustained These private gas works are dangerous, at best, and should never be put into any building in so densely a populated portion of the oity, except under charge of a most experienced man. Kirks.?A fire broke out about twelve o'clook on Tuesday night, in tbe stable of Capt. Tupper, in Anthony street, near Broadway, which was destroyed, together with four horses. It Is thought to be tbe work of an incendiary. Afire broke out about six o'clock on Wednesday morning, in the slaughterhouse of J. k K. Clinch. In Third street, which damaged the premises to tho amount of about $100. Police Intelligence. Charet of Artan.?Captain Carpenter, of the fith ward, arrested,yesterday morning, a young the name of James Hanley. on suspicion of setting Are to the stable of Kouthwiok ft Tupper, manufacturers of mineral water. No. 8& Anthony street, it appears that thiB young man was formerly in the employ of Southwick ft Tupper, but \ as discharged on Monday last, for some misronduct, since which time he has expressed a wish to hare revenge. On Tuesday night, a little before 12 o'clock, Hanley called to a negro, who sleeps In the loft, oTer the stable, requesting him to throw down the key of the stable, that he might come in and sleep. The negro being somewhat afraid of Hanley from some previous threats, threw out the key, that he might let himself In. He then went to bed again, but was scarce; ly down ten minutes before he smelt Are, and on jumping up. he found the stable on fire, and but barely escaped with his life. Captain Carpenter, of the &th ward, together with the energetic firemen, were soon on the spot, and succeeded in extinguishing the tlafnes, keeping the Are exclusively to the stabks; but. ?nfortunateiy, not before four horses were burnt to death, and another so severely injured that it is believed he will die during the day. The damage done by the Are will possibly be ubout $1,000, which adtount is covered by insurance. The accused was seen in the vicinity of the stable a few minutes before it was discovered. It was, beyond a doubt, the work of dedign, as it was distinctly ascertained that Are had been communicated in two places quite a distance from each other.

Officers Walling and Hurley. 1 of the lower polico, arrested, yesterday, a man by the ' name of Wm.

While in the crowd a Mr. Moore saw the accused fingering the coat-tail of Mr. Pullman; and suspecting he was a pickpocket. Immediately asked Mr. T. if he had lost anything, when Mr. T. replied at once that he had loat : his pocketbook. Mr. P. then walked up to McDonald, took him by the arm and aald," air you liave picked my ricket." "1 ou are mistaken," said McDonald. "No am not." said Mr P. A crowd then mustered around both parties, and McDonald said " come to the other end of filestore and I will satisfy you.'' They walked to the other end of the store ; when, scarcely had they been there ten seconds before Captain Wiley came in and took them inloeustody. Hut the most singular part of the "tory i*, lhat on Mr. P. leaving the auotlon store with the prlkdher, for the Chief's office, in order to make hie aoronlatnt, he accidentally placed hie hand on the opposite pocket of bis coat, to that which contained the book, when, to hi* surprise. he found hie book, with the money therein. Thus the thieve*, after Andlng themeelve* dieoovered, very ingeuionsly replaced the pocket tmok again, but not in the *am* pocket. 1 hie fact, however, would throw a doubt In the minds of a jury, and possibly eecurc their acquittal They were both committed by the Chief of Police for trial.

The public beipg a?ar? that thin trial was art ilown lor this day, there was considerable interest felt in the proceedings: tho Court room was, therefore, crowded from an early hour in the morning. At hair past nine o'clock, the prisoner, who appeared to lie about twenty-two years of age. very good looking, and 1 respectably dressed, was brought into court liy the officers, who bad him in charge.

Mr. Ferdinand l.awrence was the first juror called i Prisoner's counsel announced that they would objeot to him for Mr. Lawrence was then aek< il if he had heard anything of this casu ' He replied that he had read it in the newspapers. He was next asked if hejhad formed any opinion of the guilt or innocence of the prisoner ? He replied that he believed every thing be read in the newspapers. He was then asked if it would require evidence to remove his opinion? He said certainly, that it would. Prisoner's counsel objected to him on the ground shat he was biassed in his judgment. The Court then enquired if he believed every statement he read in a newspaper ! He answered, " I can only say, when i see a statement, I believe it, until the contrary is shown '' The Court then remarked they had long frit the inconvenience of the rule which set aside jurors merely becuusc they happened to read statements in newspapers, and the obstruction and delay it occasioned to the administration of public Justice It was the practice with tome gentlemen, who wished to be exonerated from jury duty, to go to a lawyer, pay him $5, and get his advice how they could evade tne jury laws. (He. the Judge, did not mean to make any allusion of that kind to Mr. l.awrence.) They were told to read a statement in the newspaper, and to form an opinion on the ease, and that that would exempt them. Such conduct was moat reprehensible I and unbecoming in good citizens. We are now compelled, Mr. Lawrence, said His Honor, to tell you. In the presence of your fellow citizens, that you are unlit to serve on this jury, from having previously prejudged the life of your fellow creature. He was then set aside. Three other jurors were then set aside for the same cause. After which the jury was sworn without further trouble. The following are the names of the jury Joel Kelly, foreman ; Philip I).
