THK PllOBABLB % HATE OP TAXB8. ? Tut ytjcn nait cot forget that the Mn?sin?nt roUa j* Of the several wards are now open for examination and ? correction, at the Tax CommUalouer's office, in the New * City Hall. Those desirous of ex.imin'og them can do so fany time before the 25th day of Juue next, whan they will be olcaed, and no further correct on allowed. There ? can be no mitigat on of the amount of tax levied after I that date, as the record shown by the book* U finti and without appeal. _ It is the general impression that the valuation of pro perty in this city, particularly of perronal property, is exceedingly inaccurate, and is far lower than a true statement of ttie facte would warrant. And no doubt this is true; Indeed, our present pi# u of electing ansa g son in the fttveial wards, has a tendency to bring about juat such a retuD. The best ssseieor wi'.h us h the one I whe will place the value of property fa his district at ai J low a rate ns possible, and should one of them attempt to I do his duty, he would find himstlf u?xt jear relieved I from the cares of bis office. The valuation of pro I perty in this city, last year, was $l!iSt021,734, no doubt 1 a more accurate estimate would prove it to be in the j neighborhood of $600X00,000. | The Legislature at its lest session pissed a bill taxing * the personal property of nou resit e&ts, thus making I them pay their just proportion rr the SUte taxes, which they have not heretofore done, rhi following is the law, which bears date February 27, ISM :? 1 All persons and asnooiaticn-i dolsg business in ths 1 State Of New York, as mer chants, r>?u *rs or other wije, ? either as principals or partners, WMfhet special or other < wise, and not residents of this Sta'e, nh -11 be assessed I and taxed on sill sums invented in any manner in said j business, tee same as if they wer* residents of this , State; and taia taxis sball be oolieeted from the pro I perty of the firms, persons, or associations to which 1 they severally belong. i It will be seen that the above law mtkes no provision ' for other than pen one who reside out of the State, and ; does not apply to the personal property of persons who do business in New York and reside in the adjacent towns, and villages. Hut, nevertheless, j it is estimated tbat the law bb parsed will add to the " taxable property of the city nearly (30,000,000, a sum that must have acme effect in cheapmg the rate of tax ation to our citizens. The largest emiuut of personal property of acy one nca- resident is $i50, 000. There is as other large clats of persons who aim escape taxation, for whose benefit it would be well to pa?s a special law. We allnde to the floating population, whose migratory habits render a proper valuation ot their personal pro perty next to imprssible, under our present tax laws. | The first Monday in June the Ceiiius Marshals will commence tbeir l&bcrs, and as thfy have orders to esti mate real eatate and personal property without regard to its present assessed v&lue, their labors, if properly conducted, will be ef great uBe in reforming our present imperfect tax list, and will be the basis ot an improved valuation. It 1s thought that the rate of taxation this year will be about $15 on every thousand, higher?1 we believe, than it ever has been. City Intelligence . Bass Ball.? Our readers ate perfectly aware that the good old fashioned game of have ball is at pretest receiving much attention among the lovers of apart an 1 manly exerc se.

Arrest or Alleged Cor.*TMt putters. ? Yesterday morn ing, officers Oubbs, Mathews and Van Wagoner made a descent opon a home in Coaeord street, near Pearl, and arrested two men aad a woman, on snsp.cion of being Implicated in the manufacture o? bogus coins, a large number of which had lately been put in circulation in both sections of this city, bat more particularly in the Eaateni district. On sArching thi premisee, they tound dies or halves, quarters and ten cent pieces, a galvanic battery, various acida, jars and crucibles containing a quantity of compoaition metal, ready lor melting. Horn* counterfeit Fpan11.l1 coin was also found, aad the whole lotwaatak'n to the office of the Chief of Police. The name* of tbe accmed parties are John I.onsano, a Spaniard; Maria, bis wife, aad James Qutnn. Loexano has heretofore been employed in thU city as a journey man barter, and was seemingly an industrious aad honest man lh? v were all locied up to await farther developemer.ts. ft appears that aome time during the morning a hoy found a die in an ash barrel in front of the houte occup ed by the accused. lie immediately repaired to the office of the Chief of Pollse, and exhibit ed It, whereupon the above ntm*<l officers were des patched to esc'rtain more about It. They soon dis covered that the ash barrel was owned by the occupants of the hou*e tefore which it stood, an 1 then proceed*) to make fut ther inquiries which resulted in the arrest of the parties named, and the eel 7 ore of the implements.

Marine Afffclrs. A N*w Steamship Limr? The citizens of Portland, hitherto feeling the n( ed of fteim communication to this prit, bare held out inducements to partite here, to start a line of steamers between oar respeotire cities, and w? are informed that Captain John Riley hu accordingly made arrangement* to put the two fine steamships Cale donia and Westernport on this route to sail from hence, on cr about tbe 1st of June, and it now only rem tin j for the citizens of Portland to do their part by furnishing freight to have all their future wants In that respect supplied by New York capital. On looking orer thii route we notice that the distance bttween this port and Portland Is not greater than the dl-.Unce from lieie to Boston, and the run from Vineyard fonnd to Portland is considered by mariners less ha/. aidous than from Ihe eatce point to Baston From tcnce to Nantucket the route is through the Long Island and V.'Ltyard Bound, being aa safe as the 8tonfngton or Fall Fiver. Portland is the most commodious and ac cessible harbor on the coast, and the distance from this city to Montreal and Q??bec, we are Informed, via Port land and the Grnnd Trunk Railroad is shorter and more eligible than by any other conveyance. We think the enterprise deeerves the attention of merchants ship ping to and from these quarters. Acaokmy of Mcsic? " Er.nasi."? The " Ernai.i" of Verdi ? certainly the most popular of that composer's operas ? drew a full an3 distingue house to the Academy of Music last evening. The audience was aupeilor, both in numbers anl appearance, to that of any of the previons performance* of the La Grange troupe, and this fact proves conclusively that iLe artists are gradually gaining that place in tbe public estimation which tbey deserve. "Ernani" has been dons here so often that no length ened description of the plot and inusio is nejesiary. It is, like all Verdi's operas, distinguished for dramatic power, and the librettist ba.i not been over-nice in put ting strong effects at the expense ol improbabilities, some times going over the mark of dramatic licence. Tae soprano, aa usual, is absurd enough to prefer a hand some tenor? a bandit who turns out to be a duke, singularly enough? to a crusty old bass and a baritone, the la&t named person belog quite a good fellow for a kluj. After numerous trou bles and conspiracies, tho tenor receives the soprano and his dukedom under a sort of general a unnssty, but bis elderly rival suoceoia in demolishing the young lovers while they are enjoying the Qrst fruits of their happiness. A shockingly bad ending, as all the ladies very truly observe. The cast of "Ernani'' at the Academy ia a strong one, ncluding Mme. de l a Grange as Elvira, Slgnor Mirate as Einanl, Slgnor Morelli a i the King, and dig nor Marini as Don 8ilva. The Eivira of the night was deficient in dramatic power, but superb in vocalism. She did not receive quite so much applause at on previous ooaa sicca, is her profuso ornamentation, quite proper in Bosina and Lu:ia. would be out of place in klvira. Her cavatioa, Ernani involami, was charm iiigly rendered, and the duet with Eruani in the second act, ''Ah morir," was given with much feeling and expression. Musically speaking, Mm). La (?range's Elvira waa excellent, but she did not seem to attempt to act. Ernani was very good, both in act ing and ringing. ? Hla scene, In the sesend act, with oilva, was excellent. 8ign?r Morelli's performance of tba King must be considered, however, the crowning glory of tba night. We have seen nothing equal to its aitistio finish, both in noting and Hinging, for many a day. Signer Marini'j fellva seemed as powerful and ef fective as ever. The oi*ra was well car?d for in the mire en teene, and waa applauded throughout. It wflfbs given again on Monday evening. Nihlo's Garden ?English Opera. ? Mr. W. V. Wal lace's opera, "Marltana," was given last night, to a fair house. Mi aa L. Pyne sang Marltana in her usual exquiiite style, and *be other parts were well represent ed by Mr Elarriion, Miss 8. Pyne and Mr. Borraui. This evening, the "Daughter of tbe Regiment." Walla ck Testimonial. ? An adjourned meeting of the friends of J W. Wallack, Esq , waa held at the St Nicholas Hotel, on Thursday evening, the 24th Inst., Copt. I'. P. Levy in tho chair. After a series of resolu tions, expressing sympathy for Mr. Wallaok's long Ill ness, his restoration to health, his worth as a manager, actor and man, the following gentlemen enrolled them selves as a committee to farther the laudable undertak ing for which the meet ng waa convened:? Cap t. U. P. Levy, U. 8. N. ; James Phalen, John C. Holland, Robert Emmet, Denning Doer, G. A. Cooover, John Hoey, C. W. A. Roilgers, E. A. Mai shall, Caleb Marshall, Jonas B.

Fatal Railroad Aran est ?Coroner Wilhelm held an ir quest yesterday upon the bod/ of Frank Bu'ner, the hoy who vu killed on Thursday night, by being ran over by one of the New Daren freight cari, in Fourth avenue, near the Bible House. The evidence taken on the occasion went to show that the driver of the ear could not possiblv have averted the accident, a* the car was tlorfl upon the unfortunate child ere th? driver was awaie of his presence Tin jury rendered the following verdict:? "That the decea?ed came to his deafi by tfie ifTcct* of a compound fracture of the left thigh, and other injuries received by being run over by on* of the New Yo'k a ad New Ilaven freight cars, said car bring driven hv FtankUn Fex. The jury exculpate the driver from all blame, but argent'.y racommend that some means be taken to prevent similar acsHents, aul that Dm company are censur.xble for not having a b-a1;?msn between the two cars, (w> icli were connected together ) ty whi:h. means the accident might have been pre vented." The deceased was nine years of age. SrrciDE dy Taking Akssmc. ? An inquest was held by Coroner Gamble, upon the bodv of a woman named Ca tharine Hodge, at h?T late resldenee in Fifty-second street, near Eleventh avenue, who died from the offsets of a dose of arsenic, administered by her own hand, for the purpose of coraai'.tirg suieiie It appeared from tte testimony taken on the oscation, that the deceased bad of late been addict"! to the too 'ree me of intoxlcit ing liquors, which crested a difficulty betwient her and her husband, he being * temperate snd respectable rain; that cn Wednesday she swalioned a dose of arsenic, and uprn <"oiog so informed her mother, then in the house, 01 the fact. A doc+cr wis immediately sent for, who prescribed the proper remed<>?, but without effect, a? the fle.eised expired the following morning, manifesting up to the last moment a wish for death. l'h?
