Intelligence was received at tbo Mayor's office, at an early hoar yesterday morning, of a dreadful raw on board of the ship William Stetson, bound for Quebec. It seems that while lying in the etream off Bedloe's Island, the first, second and third mates of the vessel, assisted by the cook and steward, rushed foi ward upon the erew with belaying pins, beating them, and causing one of the crew, whose name is Thomas Keef, to jump over board. Keef would have been drowned but for the man ly efforts of a boatman named John Hughes, .who picked him up aad brought him to tbe city. The cause of the Siorrel Is supposed to be a refuBal by th? crew to obey e orders of some of tbe officers Acoordtng to the state ment of Retf, the orew, consisting of about twenty hands, ever since they boarded the ves'el received what considered very bad treatment from the officers, who broke open the chests of the sailors to see ti they had con cealed any liquor among their clothing, and gave them the very worst description of diet. lhu nffair occurred about 4 o'clock yesterday morning Previous to this, between 2 and 3 o'clock, the second mate went into the fore castle of the ship and ordered the crew to turn out and man the windlass. About hair art hour aftec the sailors ?were up and dressed, and tbe three mates went into them and shoved the crew out on deck, without meeting any resistance. Here, however, the crew wars so fright ened at what had pi used, that they rel used to get the ship anderweifch, knowing what tbiy might expect if tbey con ? tinned the voyage, and were all ordered to go aft by the first mate. They were then asied, in the presenci of the captain and pilot, if they intra led to put the ship under weigh; but they stiff resolutely rafuaed, saying that they would not sail on board the ship. Keef and two others were then pnt in irons. Tbe rest of the craw then desired to be put in iron-i also, offering to go on shore peacefully and handcuffed; whereupon tbey were set upon by the offi:ers, knocked down and severely beaten. Keef says that one of the officers struck him on the head and face, and knocked him off the main desk between decks, where he remained for about ten minutes, bleeding and unable to move. When he recovered he went on deck, and found the banls at work. The first mate, on seeing him on deck, flew at bim with a belaying pin, with the intention of again beating him; but the sailor thinking it better to be drowned than pounded to death, jumped overboard, and was, at the last moment rescued in the manner stated above. Jus tice Osborne issued warrants for the arrest of the offi cers, which were entrusted to officer I)a Voe, of the Chief's office, who, acoompanied by four or five other hands, has gone out to arrest the mates, steward and cook.

Mr. Starr, who has recently returned to th* North from Kanras, delivered a lecture on Thursday evening, at the Tabernacle, giving an account of the physical condition of Kan nag?the difficulties which had dircouraged Northern emigrants?the resolute and determined character of the Missouriuns in checkmating the Kansas Emigration leagues?the want of saw-milla, Ac., Ac.; and promised on tbo following (Friday) even ing, to give an account of bia expulsion fron the Terri tory. Our reporters were at the Ta'oernacl* at half past seven o'clcck last evening, and found at the outer door the following announcement:? 6 ////// /W //r///WAf WW WW/W//W WV// J THE FRIENDS OF KANSAS MEET HERE THIS EVENING, $ The "friends" in this city?In the sense of the an nouncement?are not legion, if the number then in the Tabernacle formed a just criterion to judge by, inas much aa they d|d not appear in a more formidable array than seven persons, all told?of wbom three were re porters One by one a few more, including ooe lady, dropped In, and at 8 o'clock there were present within tho bail twenty-tbiee persons, exclusive of a group as sembled In the vestibule, and of whom Mr, Joe Blunt was the centze,discoursing on the merit* of saw mills,Tog wagons and what not. In the course of the next quarter of an hour another lady and some half dozen more gentlemen came to relieve somewhat thedeserted appearance of the Tabernacle. Here there was but a very poor chance for tbe scans to get saw mills, log wagons, printing presses and materiel, which appeared to be the modest object of tbe pmpostd lecture. Another quarter of an hour hav leg passed without augmenting tee audience, Mr. Joseph Blunt advanced to tse reporter's table and, addressing the thirty persons present, inclndiDg the aforesaid two Indies, said:? Ladies and Gentlemen? in consequence of the insuffi cient notice given of this meeting?none of the papers but two (and they only the Timet and Tribune) hiving ancounced the fact that a lectuie wan to take place here tonight?K has been concluded to have a meeting on Tueeday night next, in this place, for tbe purpose of Mr. Starr continuing his remarks, of which notice is to be given in all the papers. 'lne announcement was received with much gratifica tion , particularly by the reporters. The Rev. Mr. Stakr? a pleasant, good humored, active looking young man, the very antipodes of the ideal of a martyr?then came forward and said:?Permit me. If yon please, to return thanks to you for yorr having ci me here to-night. It is apraetice of mine, from which I have never deviated till the present occasion, to always give the people who come in stormy weather?no mat ter how few?any benefit they may derive from hearing me; hut the friends of tbe ciuie think It better to adjonrn tbe meeting?and, Providence permit ting, I hope to he here on Tuesday night, and hope to have a full house. I am obliged to yon for your coming. From a charitable, good natured feeling towards Mr. Starr, and considering that he is a stranger and avoived himself unacquainted with the philosophy of advertising in hi aw York, we give him the benefit of this-notice. The Police Cowmliiloners. The Police Commissioners held a session for the trial of cases, at tie Major's office, jester if ay afternoon. At four o'clock his Honor Mayor Wool took the chair, and was assls1! ed by the Hon. Recorder Smith. There was a large crowd of people in attenfancs. TUB CAfrit OF POLICEMAN DANIEL LINN.

H'l Honor the Recorder stated that Judge Stuart was not present, and no papers or affidavits that he, the Recorder, had seen, bad been presented aga'nst Mr. I/na, sod the only knowledge he bad of the charge was what be bad beard from the Judge (jtuart) in a conversation when llaker was arrested. He did not wish to take any sctlon in the case, bnt would refer the matter to the Major. Mayor Wood did not feel inclined to discharge ihe com plaint against I.inn.

His Honor the Recorder asked if tbe connaal wished ( to say that officers were justified to go to the house of a private citizen?bis castle?and make an arrest without a warrant and to maltreat tbe woman. Tbe'law in this case was well understood, and except in cases where it was probable a burglary would be committed, no such power was gtven to the police.

So fur we fcave bed epriug weather, with humid air and mo let, cold wiadii, whieb. though weloorae, m it ba? ia fured ue against drought, has beea most ueseaaonable and injurious to early summer vegetable* and corn. A few wa:m days will fill our markets with new potatoes berries and green truck, which want but warmth to ripen it. profusion. A scientific wiseacre down east, ac counts for the colo weather by saying It is caused by tgo ImmeBKS spots lately seen on tba purine* of the sun. Ibis explanation would be aatisiaetory were it not that tbe largest spot ever aeen on the euo was only 50,000 miles in circumference, a space too small, according to the laws governing tns radiation nni transmission of haat, ?o affect the temperature of tbe earth one half a degiee. This fact, ol course, "knooits spots" out of the theory There t? one production (not vegetable,) which the warm sun will soon convert into an intolerable nui sance, vis: t>e span or inch worms m our public perke and promenading grounds. These noisome vermin can even now be seen in the l'ark haagirg from every tree, dangling in mid air en impalpable 111ms, on their way to the ground, where il uninterrupted they change into miliars, wbe ascend and liy their eggs in the bark of th? trees to sgain become worms If these insnots would go through this tran?lormatlou without interfering with any one else they might be tolerated; but they have a moat uncomfortable habit ol clinging to the bate, cost#, aonnrta or dreases the passers by, that makes them perfectly unbearable. No doubt, It Is because of the absence of b rds that these vermin thrive. The bird is tbtir natural en? my, and In the forests they make short work sf tbe worms generating in the bark of trees, bub in tbe vicinity of populated dUtricta, the birds have even a greater ectmy in man, whoshoots, maiuts and destrors them without mercy. But still there is no reason ?hy these vermin should bs allowed to infest trees in lsrge ciiies. IToper care would soon remove them If trees were washed with strong alkaline or aeld solutions, anl tbe btanches were scraped in early spring, it would do much towards freeing our public grounds. Cutting the bark and inserting a preparation of sulphur has been tried with good effect. This should be done in earlv summer, when the ssp is rising, and il will carry with it the sulphur until it permeates tno whole tree. Then again tbe much decried alanthus tree should be grown, for this species alone never generates worms, and flourishes where the willow, elm and linden became nuisances. Out Miutart Companim?Tna Philadelphia First Troop Crrv Cavalry.?In our notice of volunteer mili tary com pan las of oldest date in oar country, there is ore company eminently deserving most honorable men tion, which Beerns to have been overlooked. Allusion is bad to the 'First Troop City Cavalry," of Philadelphia. Thia company reflects the highest honor upon the city ano State to which it belongs, and is well kno?n through out the country. During the trying scenes of the revo lution of 'Tli, it rendered most effective service, and was the favorite hooy gnard of Hen Washlng'on. From that day to the present its active organisation has besn kept up, and the company Uaa ever been referred to with pride by Ptnneylvamans, and has been claimed by them as tbe cuvalrv corps of our country. Tais is owing not lets to its efficiency and exalted reputation as a tho roughly drilled troop, reliable in every emergency, than to the h'gh personal character of those who comprise its roll of member!. Its archives would doubtlem furnish smpl# material for a volume of surpaising interest; aad it is hoped that some member of the troop will famish sn account ot it, for publication, lhe captain of this trcop, John Butler, E-q , a most accomplished cavalry officer, was honored by President Polk with the commis sion of Captain of Cavalry in the army at the commence ment of the late war with Mexico, where he fell a victim to the climate, in the faithful discharge of his duty. Grand Mtsical Festival.?The Smogerfest, or annual festival of the German vocal societies of tbe different States, will be held in this city on the 25th anl 26th Inst. The practice of holding these festivals origi nated In Germany, the composer Elsfeldt being the first and the moat active in getting them up. Al most every village ar d town in Germany has Its band of siegers, who hold regular weekly or monthly msetings, at whieh they have concerts. These concerts are always well attended, and help to foster that lava or music which appears natural to the Germsn as well as the Italian character, fcisfsldt was the first to conceive the idea of bringitg these societies together every year, at a grand festival, and through his exertions a Urge num ber were assembled at Wurzbnrg, In the year 1S45. Bevtral were held since then; but the revolutionary struggles of 1818, by which all Germany was convulsed, put a stop to them, and we believe none have ever been lieid since. About three years ago, however, they wire revived In this country, to which the Germans have brought their instinctive love or music. Over forty societies were present at tbe first celebration, and at least ten thousand spec tators were assembled on the occasion in Elm Park. This year extensive preparations have been made for the Eicngerfest, and it promises to be more brilliant than in any former year. It is expected that between forty and fifty societies will be present, numbering all together twelve hundred singers. The Mayor and severe of the heads of departments and of the city officials, will be present. Tbe arrangements are under tbe direction of the Fest or musical d'rector, Mr. Rudolph f.sxow, who will read an address. The festival will begin on the 25th Inst., when a grand concert will be given In tbe Metropo litan Theatre, and termlnats on the 26th with a pic nic in llm Park. At ad these gatherings the most perfect harmony prevails, and every one seems to be actuated by a feeling of good fellowship and fraternity. Togaor row tbe various societies will be received by the Born serfeet of this city, and in the evening there will be a torchlight procession. TBMPiRANCX Meetlyo in toe Tkntu Ward.?The tem perance society of the Tenth ward last night held a meeting, in the Presbyterian church in Alien street, near Grand. The object of the meeting was to put the temperance men in proper spirit for the great temperance demonstration to come off in ths Broadway Tabernacle. Owing perhaps to the dubious state of the weather in the early part of the evening, there were not more than fifty rersons preeent. Mr. J. T. Brooks occupied the chair. At the opening of tbe meeting" Mr. Richard Houston fa voted tire audience with a temperance song, which took very wsll Mr. J. T. Oliver was then introduced, who made a long speech, pitching promiscuously Into everyone opposed to the Maine law. Borne other ora tions of the enme stsmp were delivered by other speak ers, after which the company adjourned. Another Instance of Post Officii Mismanagement.? Another instance came to our knowledge yesterday of the gross inefficiency and carelessness of our Post Office officials. It appears a Mr. N. Hooper, of State street, Eosten, sent a draft on the Metropolitan Bank, for a con siderable amount, to Messrs. T. Derby & Co., of this c.ty, on the first day of May last, anl although the letter was properly directed, strange to say, it found ita way to the dead letter office In Washington, and from there was rent hack to Mr. Hooper, who remailsd it to New York, where it was received by the person for whom It was in tended seven weeks after dais. No doubt hundreds of just such cases occur daily, that never come to light, owing to their being hushed up, or thought too trivial for publication. But It is evident that a Post Office sys tem so loosely arranged as to admit of evsn one caie of this k'nd, Is deserving of the severest reprobation, and calls loudly for reform. The feeling fs becoming general throughout the country that our Post Office Department is sn old fogy humbug, that had better be abolished forthwith, and the tetter carrying don# by expresses. Paradk of the Sxcond Brigade.?The Second Brigadei under commend of Brigadier General Yates, made their snnnal spring parade jesterday. Thi3 command is cam poeed of the Fourth regiment, Col. Hineken; Fifth re giment, Col. 8cb?aitzwa'<ler, and the Sixth regiment. Col. Picckney. They t araded to Hamilton square, and were there thoroughly drilled in fleli manneuveing. They were furnished with a day's rations, and did not return to the city until late in the evening. Encampment of the National Gtard.?The official or der has been promulgated for the National Guard to pre pare themselves for their grand encampment at King ston, which will commence on the 9th of July and con tinue for one week. Noll s band will accompany them. During their etay a grand ball wiU be given, to which the ladies of Kingston have been invited.

Reports from tha several wares wara received, wbteb, though they did not contain any figures, ware interesting, inso laneb as they gave a clue to many important facta. It la found that the population in the Second and Third wards has .decreased since the last census was taken, while I he number of shops, stores und warehouses have been augmented during the same period. The First ward lias increased, owing, to the largo number of emi grant boarding bouaea, principally Herman, started there of late years. Tha operation* of tha t'?stle (tardea emi grant depot will no doubt eventually diminish the num her of inhabitants, aa emigrants going West will be im mediately shipped oil, and not permitted to remain in the city.fftthe Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth wards will show little or no increase; but all the other up town wards will be found to have added largely to their psrmanent population. Tak ing the increase between the years 181b and 1850 as an average, (and there is reason to believe It will exceed it this year,) the population of the city cannot be tar from 825,0C0. This includes, of courae, all the permanent and Hosting population; also, those who dwell In ships and boats In the East river, as far as the Brooklyn short. Thus, the sailors and ma rines on board the Noith Carolina art to be oouuted in the census of tbts city, instead of Brooklyn. Tbbt is oning to the claim of this oity extending to low water mark on the other side of the East river. It is found that, on nn average, there are absut Ave persrns in a family, and two families in n house. What constitutes a family is somewhat indefinite. A bouse with fifty boarders is one family; a lad rooming by hira eelt is a family; but the average of all is, as stated, a fraction less than five. The Marshals say their work is now about half done, and that it is more thsn prooable they will be able to give a number of totals by the second week in July; but complete returns caunot be expected before the end of that month. The census this year will be very full, but tbne is a fear that, in some important particulars, it will be defective. For instance, it would be well, for many public and humanitarian considerations, to know the number of persons engaged, and the amount of money involved in. prostitution in this city. No accurate estimate has over been had. but were it known, the figures would no doubt appal the publit, *Dd show a cancer on the body politic few people have any idea of. As most of the unfortunate women en gaged in this business were formoily of some occupation ?seaaartresses and the like ?they give tbeir late em ployments, which the Marshals, according to their in structions, are compelled to put down, and no of other matters equally important and interesting. The charge brought against the census Marshals by soaae of the city papers, that they are incompetent, careless and insccurate, is untrue; as a body, they seem desirous of doing their duty faithfully, though, of course, some of them may not be as faithful and accurate as the public could wish. It is dua to the Marshals who attend to tbeir duty to ferret out those who do not. It would bo well for them to have rome place where our citizens could make complaints of non-performance of duty; also to insist on some time and place where their repirts would be open to publlo inspection and revision, if the Marshals will pursue some such course as tnis, they will secute the countenance of the press and the public, and may do something towards earning for themselves the increased compensation for which they are now *o clamorous. Personal Intelligence. George Law was entertained yesterday at the Metro politan Hotel by a party of his personal and political friends. The Hon. E. B. Bsrtlett, of Kentucky, Presi dent of the grand National Know Nothing Council, and several others from Virginia, Kentucky, and Pennsylva nia, the friends of "Live Oak George," were present. The Honorable Pierre Boole, late Minister for the Uni ted States at Spain, and A. Dudley Mann, arrived In the city last night, and are stopping at the Metropolitan Hotel. Governor Feeder arrived in St. Louis on the 18th last., on his way to Kansas, The other day ex-Governor Tazewell, of Virginia, now 84 jeers or age, was warranted by the City Inspector of Norfolk to answer before the Mayor's Court the charge of permitting a nuisance on hie premises. The ex-Gov ernor conducted his own case, the Beacon saye, with hands tremulous, eyes partially dimmed, and voice hus ky, bat with a mind apparently unimpaired?the last of his generation of the bar stood us to plead his own case before a Mayor's Couit. He still displayed the great legal acumen and extraordinary abilities which won him such celebrity at the bar. In eur highest State courts and the 8upren,e Court of the United States thirty odd yeais ago. The charge was dismissed. Mr. Tazewell was a member ot the Senate when Jackson was chosen President, and, during the early stage of bU adminis tration was his ablest supporter in that body, feubse quently be went Into opposition, preferring Mr. Calhoun to Mr. Van Bursa. General Jackson oliored him tke mission to London before the appolatment was given to Mr. M'Lane, end propose] that he should undertake a revision of our tariff system by means of a treaty with the British government. Mr. Taoewell was a free trade man, and earnestly desired to get rid of the protective feature of our impost system, but he declined the ap pointment, under the conviction that the constitution oid not vest the authority for that purpose in tb? treaty making power. Jackson's notion of construing the con etitutionas lie understood it, carried him to a different conclusion: but the idea found no favor with the oil Virginia statesman, and, being a conscientious man, be argued the question with Old Hickory until he was induced to abandon the scheme. Twenty-five years ago Mr Tazewell was one of the most venerable looking men in the h'enate. Of stately proportions and commanding pretence, be was about the most striking figure in the chamber, then filled with the flower of the older states men of the republic. iibn.

The judicial investigation into the case of thu conspirators arrested on the 28th of Ma/ was ac tively proceeding. One of the sergeant* of the 1Mt Principr regiment, who ia compromised in that affair, has, it ia said, made disclosures which have plaaed int the handa of the government all the thread* of tha vaafe conspiracy which has exploded in eeveral points of the Spanish territory. It was in consequence of those re re lations that General Kos de Olano, direct jr of the in fantry, had left, in ha> to for Toledo, where a plot had been formed in which it was sought to inyclre tha pupils of the military echool. Five of the Spanish Ministers, namely, M., M. Madoz, M. Lujan, M. Santa Cruz and M. Aguirre, had given in their resig nations. The Palrie eays that the motives of theic retirement are entirely personal, and will effect mm change in the policy of the Spanish government. Ia leferriDg more particularly to M. Luzuriaga, it stattn thut his resignation ia caused solely by bad health, and pays the following tribute to his merits.? The loyalty of his character, and tae intelligent fine ness which he has exhibited in aliairs, frequently of m difficult and complicated nature, have mainly preset*, ed the good understanding which was on the point ef being interrupted, between the United State, and Spain. The relations or the Spanish government with the cabi net of Washington have never been better than they tra at this moment. General Zabaia, who succeeds M. Luzuriaga ia the min istry of foie'gn affairs, possesses a fortune of several million* of francs, Ia consenting to make part of thn new cabinet, M.

They feught with sabres (long, straight, heavy weapons), and at the very outset of thn combat General Concha perceived that hia antagoohs was utterly ignorant of fence. Thereupon he refused tn continue, and insisted cn pistols. The seconds, desirous to prevent bloodshed, put m unlimited powder, the con sequence of whioh was that Concha was wonaaed in thn hand by his own weapon.

The Third Bombardment of Sebastopol? The Successes of the Allien?The Baltic Fleet close to Cronrtadt? The Position of Austria?Serious Considerations?The Car Ust Insurrection in Sfain. The debate on the war in the House of Oommege still continues. It affords honorable members am opportunity of easing their minds on the smbjeot; bat as it is not likely to entail any defeat upon tbo government, or lead to any result whatever, and as, moreover, the speeches are unusually dull and star pid, I will spare your readers an aocount of them. The telegraphic communications between Yarns aid Balakiava, which had been momentarily inter, rupted, have again been resumed, and we lean that the third bombardment of Sebastopal commenced on the 6th June. This will probably be the final one. The tide of Buccess is now high in favor of the allies. The Russians are disheartened by the re cent terrible slaughter on the night of the 23d, when the French stormed their works near the cen tral battery; and the destruction of nearly 300 ve* seisin the Bea of Aaoff, of all their stores of grain, their forts, Ac., is a blow they cannot well recover. Boujoukale, on the Circassian coast, has already surrendered; Anapa will fall next. I fully expeok to have to announce to yon shortly that the garri son of SebaBtopol has retreated into the interior, or. abandoning the town, shut itself up in the greek Northern fort on the other side. With these mails you will receive PeUssier's re port of the nights of 23d and 23d of Mqy. Gorte ohakoff, in a despaton to his government, states that on the night of the 22d the Russian iaes ww 2,600 men, among whom was General Adlerbsrg. He does not say a word about the still more sangui nary aflair on the following night. It was a terrible hand to band fight with sword, bayonet and dag ger, such as the Scotch clans used to have in the good old times. More men were killed than at Alms. At all events, it is bnt due to tne Russians to my that they fight like men. We learn to-day by telegraph'that the allied squad ron in the Gulf of Finland waa at anchor only five miles west oi CroLHtadt.
