MONDAY MORNINt(, JUILY 16, IGt. _ The Environs of New Orlelnor , .Ion Andrr:s Almonaster, the ancestor of the present Pontalba family residing in France, was a public officer under the Spanish colonial oadministration, for we find his name men tioned as being a notary public from 1770 to 1782. [t is further stated that he was the royal standard bearer, or the alferez, a great tplace of honor under the municipal adminis tration of Spanish communities, who, itseems, have conserved a;t least part of the ancient ItMoorish, civil government, hence we find such denouminatians as sirealde or judge and al guazil, mayor or sheriff, after the formation of trhe municipal administration in the city of Ne-w Orle,a'.. We finrl further, that the ,ree.-. elat ratheleralsswa, finishrred in tlhe year r17tl, and that ite. erection was due to the liberality oi -aid Adre- Ahlmonaster, regidorandalferezi reaitl oA h.ri ithic maicjesty. We stated ini I former i beer, that thli tto spl.endid rows of brick lolili,- s, fronting tihe pIrlice pt ire call-i l, "1. -on Squatre. in the midrdle of the ir,'i,,nt ,. were the piroperty of the rich Po-ntiblla lfiuclc, of which the mother, the only daughirter of Don Andres is, if we are not irrsltaOce, c ill living in Paris, where no doubt thi.- int ot the finily have also their reosilicw... it i neot long since we noticetd in the publce paper.s, that one of the Messieurs FPontalba is related by manrriage to the rich Frenchit hanker ires, whose singular legal dii ficultie-, aid eventual triumphs have been thi theme of newspaper commentaries. But to return to our ancient buildings, the two existing rows of stores and dwelling houses oculpying exactly the site at present built upon by this new construction, ordered by and completed under the personal superintendence I of Madame Pontalba, somewhere in the fiftieth year. When we beheld the former buildings in 1816, they could then not have had less than some fifty years existence already ; they were of the order of houses built partly of bricks, between posts, and the roofs covered with the old round tile, baked or burnt in kilns, in this country, before the introduction of the tiat tiles from France. (Nantes and IInvre. c-r the later appearing Scotch slates from Glasgow and other ports of North Britain. From thlen e indications it will easily be per ceived that the two rows of buildings of Pon talba fronting the ancient Place d'Armes, were indeed relics of the earliest improvement in the Louisiana coliry. The several modes of cov ering the roofs of houses in our city are gener ally indications of the age or the time at whichi the ibuildings have been erected ; for the mostot ancient or primitive one was that of cypress shingle wood, then followed the hollow red brick tiles, after athich again for a number of years the French dst r-,of tiles already named, as imnportrdi froe:li France, was much in fashion ; when finally the present universal slate cover ing was adopted as the most convenient, and upon the whole. the most economical after all. When we say that the slate roofing is the most r:conr.inical we mean upon the long run, for, though the first cost may be some what greater than the former flat or hollow tiles, still are the repairs much less frequent than those -of these latter modes of house coverings, and particularly the French flat tile roofing would continually require re newed pitch, tarring and other modes of stop ping the numerous leaks. As for the heavy hollow . red brick tiles, and now only seen upon the roofs of old houses, they require not so often repairing, but they are so heavy that the roofs must be constructed ex pressly, in order to support such a mass of cumbrous weight. The other modo of cover ing with cypress shingles or even clap-boards, is much resorted to still, in constructions of country houses and out-buihlings, and no doubt will continue for the cheaper kinds of abodes and in localities where the danger from conflagration is not so much to be ap prehended. When we consider that by the aid of the powerful steam engine pumps our firemen are now enabled generally to subdue the fiery ele ment in a short time after its outbreak, we shall suppose that in course of time little need be feared in that respect in the crowded or populous portion of our city precincts ; and yet it canunot be gainsaid, but what the risks of our insurance companies must still be con siderable, because otherwise the fire premiums paid by our property owners would be much less than what they actually are. Although we know that in some cities of the North New York .city, for instance-a new organiza tion of the fire department was deemed indis pensible, in order to insure greater security with regard to the suppression of many dis orders or riotous proceedings on the part of many of the elements composing the compa nies of the fire brigade, there is no necessity whatever, in this respect, as to our New Or leans fire department. Still would it not be amiss if some measures should'be taken on the part of the firemen themselves, as well as the city authorities and the insurance companies, in order, if possible, to give greater effi ciency to the present organization of our vigil ant fire department. There can never be too' much zeal displayed at the present time, and under the critical circumstanced in which our country more or less finds itself involved. Though little versed in the construction of the new steam engines of which our firemen make use, it seems to us that means no doubt will be found to render these modern contri vances more easily transportable, and capable of being more seviceable in these emergencies, by being distributed throughout all the wards and sub-districts of our widely extended city environs. By such a diffusion or distribution of fire engines of steam power all over the city limits a much greater degree of security would be infused into our various population, who now place their only reliance in the vigilance of the organized association, whilst in olden times the whole of the adult male population was called upon to aidi in the suppression of this dreaded element not to mention the lives and health of the members of the commu nity so often exposed and placed in jeopardy by conflagration calamities. Whilst ,upon this subject, we would again reiterate our re marks in former numbers, that during fires in olden times regular cordons by the police oi military forces would be established so as preo vent the rob:ries which such occasions afford to the unprincipled part of society to profit by, and to assist in saving the ffeicts and valuables of the unfortunate sufferers oi these calamities. Such recommendations are not superfluounr in the present condition of our society; the community is traversin4 one of the many social concussions which follow in the train of that grand suo ial catacly.m--our sudden emanciplatiio irruption and eonseqlnent coaimercial upheaval. Let Us, then, by all means, le vigilant and guard the main pilhars of our social striucture. Musleal and Theatrical.

Six members of the Bellotti-Bon troupe have enlisted under Garioaldi. Mr. and Mrs. Boucicault have made arrange ments with Mr. Fechter to appear at the Lyceum in London, in September, in a new drama to be written by Mr. Boucicault. Since 1842 there have been eight hundred and eighty-nine operas and ballets composed in Italy, of which number Donizetti alone has written more than seventy. The Theater Lyrique, in Paris, has concluded an engagement with Ristori before her departure for this country. By virtue of this engagement she was to play Medea on the 20th, and Maria Stuarda on the 22d ult. The new Holborn theater in London will proba bly be opened with a drama by Mr. Boucicault; and Miss Herbert will produce a new play by toe same author, in the autumn, at the St. James's theater. An event of more than usual interest has talien place in Berlin; the production of Sophocles's " Antigone," with Mendelssohn's music. All the savants of the capital were present. Mendels sohn's music produced a grand effect. A dramatic adaptation of " Our Mutual Friend" has recently been produced at Sadler's Wells Theater, London, under the title of " The Golden Dustman." The central feature" of the play is Mr. Belmere's powerful representation of Mir. Ilegg. the Viennese prima donna, Mme.

GRANT AND THE PReslotoNY.-There has been a great deal of speculation recently among the newspapers as to the position of General Grant with reference to the next presidential elec tion, and also with regard to his opinion of the proposed amendment to the Constitution. Much of this speculation is indulged in by political por tisans for interested purposes. I can say, upon Rood authority, that Ges. Grant will, in no event, be a candidate for te preldency atthenext presi d-ntial electieon sd any use of his name in that cgnection is wholly unauthorlzed and deprecated by the general. With reference to the proposed constitutional amendment, Gen. Grant has, on several occasions, in private conversation said that he could see no serious objection to the amend ment itself, and he in fact approved its main feat ures, bat nevertheless it is the opinion of the gen eral that the Southern loyal representativesa should have been first admitted to their seats and an op portunity should hlave been given them ta vote npoa the joint resolution to amend the Contlstution before the same was subjected to the several State legislatures.

C The Prussians carried Gitsechibystorm after' an obstinate defense, and ajunction was efiieted between the army of the Elbe under Prince Fred- m erick Charles and the army of SBilesia under the P Crown Prince. Five thousand prisoners were esap tured at Gitschin, and the losses by the Ans is trians in the series of combats are-altoge'ter at estimated at 20,000 killed and wounded and 16,000 Ij prisoners. In the battles of the 28th and 5)th, . the corps of Austrians under General Goblentnz was nearly broken up. It lost four guns and i eight flags. ti It is officially denied that the Prussians lost eighteen gons, as stated in Vienna dispatches. The Austrians have retired to a strong positison between Josephstadt and Koneggrats. Their to treat is said to have been precipitate. The army of the Elbe has advanced beyond Gitschin. The King of Prussia was at Gitschin an a the 3d, on a visit to the army. The London [Times?] says: "Horrible as the carnage has been, it is a mere prelude to the pitched battle, now unavoidable, in which a quar tl1 ter of a million of men will be engaged on either side." King Victor Emmanuelsent a telegram congrat ulating the King of Prussia on the victory of his it arms. uI The operations between the Italians and Aus- , trians is confined to skirmishing. No engagement h' of importance has occurred in that quarter. The al Italians are preparing for another onslaught, and t the soldiers are eager for the fray. The revolt in Spain has been auppressed. p The Prince of Wales, while riding m a street of 0 London, was thrown by a collision with a runaway horse.

Duke of Buckingham, a president of council. The populace held a reform meeting in London, h at which 15,000 persons were present. el The Prussian march in Bohemia is thus far triumphant. Benedek is concentrating his forces for a great i battle. It The Austrian loss was 4000 besides the prisoners captured at Gitschin. The Prussian loss was heavy. Several Austrian regimentswere nearly Is decimated on the 28th. A Jagar battalion was annihilated to the last man. The Austrians claim a minor success at Turnau, on the 30th. Berlin dispatches, of the Ist, give official ao counts from the Crown Prince, announcing the I result of the three days' combate. " The fighting of the Fifth Pnusiean corps, which Is has been engaged, cannot be too highly estimated. On the 27th, it was opposed by the Sixth Austrian corps, which was used upon the 28th. The Fifth Prussian corps was commanded by Archduke Leo- s pold and GeneralTestely, and thefighting on those days was over extended lines. Gobientz's coaps t was broken up, losing heavily in guns, kiled, t wounded and prisoners. The Austrians have a t evacuated Oswecin. Dresden is being fortlied." r A Berlin dispatch of the 3t sasa that nutwith, standing the arduous campaign and sanguinaryl I fighting, the Prussian army is in high spirits and excellent condition. 5 Benedek was compelled, in onsequenesof the retreat of the Austrians. and Saxon troops, to t abandon his operations near Gitschin, and Consin. I trate at a distant point. The Austrians claim the captuor ao four thou sand men and fourteen gani at COstoza. The I Austrian hussars advanced on the Italian ternitory near the Monclo, but were driven of.
