SPECIAL MEETING OF THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.—A meet ing of the Baltimore United Fire Department was held last night at their room, in the old City Hall. John P. Cummings, Esq., First Vice President, in the chair. The chairman stated the object of the meeting to he—to take into consideration the action of the President of the Department, in appointing three Commissioners from this body, in accordance with a resolution passed at the last session of the City Council, to act with the other Coramis sioners appointed by the Mayor anil City Council, for the purpose of re organizing the Fire Department of the city of Baltimore. Mr. Charles T. Holloway, of the Pioneer Hook and Lad der Company, offered the following preamble and resolu tions, which were read by the Secretary : That Whereas , The General Assembly of Maryland at the December Session. 1833, passed an Act entitled 4, An Act to incorporate the Baltimore United Fire Depart ment," Chap. 187; and whereas, said Act authorizes and empowers the Association of Delegates representing the several Fire Companies in the City of Baltimore, and their successors, chosen annually by the said several Fire Companies and the Delegates from every other Fire Com pany which shall he established in tlie city of Baltimore, to he incorporated and become a body politic by the name of the "Baltimore United Fire Department," with power to sue and be sued; to use one common Seal, &c., as will more fully appear on reference to said Charter. And whereas Sec. 4, of the same Act authorizes and empowers the Delegation or Representation of a majority of the Fire Companies, in virtue of the Charter, being present, to pass and enact all By-Laws, which they shall deem necessary for the better regulation of Fire Companies so associated during their operations at Fires. lie it Re solved by this Department, Tnat the effort made in the City Council is unwarranted on their part and without any delegated power from the Legislature of Maryland. AND WHEREAS, The Delegates of the several Campanies composing this Department, anxkjous to preserve the ••Bal timore United Fire Department inviolate from dismem berment l>y any proposed or violent action by the Mayor and City Council, and also desirous to meet the views of their fellow citizens, especially in reference to a re-organ ization of the present Fire system, arising, as it does, from improvement in machinery, the spread of property lying within the City limits, together with irregularities exist ing among some of the Companies, do hereby resolve "That a Committee of one from each Company (to be named by the respective delegations) be appointed and authorized to prepare and report to this Department, a plan or plans for the re-organization of the Department, with the necessary State and City legislation to pe feet the same; said plan having in view the appointment of a Chief Engineer.

AND WHEREAS, The Department reserves to itself the right, by resolution only of a majority of Delegates present from the several Companies, to appoint Committees, either through its President or Delegations. lie 1 1 resolved , That as no resolution was ever offered or passed by the Department, the President had no right to appoint Messrs. Gorsuch, Spilliman and Stran to meet the Committee appointed by the Mayor and City Council. It was moved and seconded that each resolution he voted on separately, the vote being taken by companies. The first resolution was then read and after consider able discussion adopted. Yeas 12, Nays 7, Divided 2, Ah sent 1. The second resolution was then taken up, and an amend ment offered by Mr. J. L.

The companies then proceeded to nominate one delegate from their body to carry out the provisions of the second resolution, looking to a change in the Department. The following delegates were appointed: Mechanical, none: Union, A. C. Mathews: Friendship, S. S. Mills; Liberty, Joshua Yansant: Independent, W. H. 11. Fusselbaugh; Vigilant, none; New Market, A.

The President, Thorn.is Creamer, then called the atten tion of the Department to one of its regulations, relating to the wearing of distinguishing badges by the members of the different companies, so that by their action they could co-operate with the Police of the city during the prevalence of a fire, and stated that the ordinance relative to placing ropes across the streets in time of fire, went in to operation on the Ist inst., and the Marshal had express ed his intention of carrying it out strictly, not intending to recognize any one as a fireman unless he showed the uniform badge of his company. No other business claiming their attention, the meet ing then adjourned. MORE OUTRAGES.—A few weeks since, as we then no ticed in the Exchange, the negro men who, for years past* have been employed by our ship builders as caulkers, were driven from a number of the yards by organized gangs of white rowdies, who demanded the work in a manner so signific mt of a determination to enforce the demand, that many of the proprietors acceded to it, and substituted these parties for their former operatives. As there were among this organized crowd but a small num ber who were competent workmen in this line, they were divided into small sections, each of which comprised a captain and two or three experienced caulkers, with per haps a dozen who knew nothing of the business. Thus re-organized, they took complete possession of the yards, ami compelled their proprietors to pay the same per diem ($1.75,) to these incompetent men that good workmen had received. This grievance was submitted to until Monday last, when Messrs. Skinner k Sons, whose yard is on the south side of the basin, notified the leader of the section who had charge of their yard, that, although they were content to employ those in the organization, they would not submit to the injustice of having to pay full price for men who were only learning their business. On the following morning they again called the captain's attention to the subject, when he informed them that his orders were, from the organization, to leave the yard, if there should be any further complaint. These gentlemen thereupon discharged the whole gang, and selecting a force from among their old negro employees, took them before the Mayor, where they represented the case and claimed for them the protection of the authorities. The Mayor assured them it should be exercised, told them to put the men to work and that his officers should protect them. Accordingly, on Wednesday last, they set them to work, and during the day four gangs from the organiza tion referred to, took possession of all the streets leading from the yard, as also a vessel which lay in the stream facing it, and being arn*-d with muskets, rifles, pistols, &c., openly threatened the lives of the colored caulkers as they should leave the yard. During the afternoon the Messrs. Skinner called upon the police, who were detailed there to prevent trouble, to arrest the ringleaders, but they refused upon the plea that they bad committed no violation of law. They then requested the officers to enter a boat and protect the col ored men while being rowed across the basin, which re quest was also denied. One of the proprietors then en tered the boat himself with the men, and as they were about leaving the dock, a boat filled with the rowdies who had possession of the schooner also put out, for the purpose of attacking them, and as it neared the former boat, Mr. Skinner drew a revolver, and calling the party by name who headed this gang, threatened to tire among them if they did not put back. His coolness and firmness so intimidated these desperadoes that they at once put back to the schooner, and here the trouble ended for the day, without any serious results. Further difficulty being apprehended yesterday, Mar shal Herring detailed a posse of officers from the eastern section of the city to protect these colored men, and ex pressed his determination to take such men as were not sympathisers with these desperadoes, and those who would discharge their duty. BUSINESS OF THE CRIMINAL COURT. —The May term of the Criminal Court was brought to a close on Tuesday last, after a session of forty two days, during which time there were one hundred and seventy-six cases disposed of Of the convictions, seven parties were sentenced to the Penitentiary, for an aggregate period of twenty-eight years, the shortest term being two, and the longest six years. During the term twenty-nine cases were removed to the Circuit Court for Baltimore county, thirty four parties were arraigned, and one thousand three hundred and seventy three indictments were found by the grand jury—six hundred and seventy-six of which were for selling liquor without license, four hundred for selling merchandise without license, seventeen for doing the bus" iness of brokers without license, and three hundred and eight for various offences ami misdemeanors. The capias in all these cases were served by the Sheriff, who also laid twenty one attachments in cases of forfeiture of recogni zances, summoned one thousand five hundred and sixty nine witnesses to appear before the Court, two hundred and ninety-eight witnesses to appear before the grand jury, and laid nineteen attachments against witnesses summoned before the grand jury. The total number of capias and suhp<enas served by the Sheriff during the term was three thousand three hundred and eight. The total number of witnesses ordered by the grand jury was three hundred and thirty-six, two hundred and ninety eight of whom were summoned and thirty-eight returned non est. OBSERVANCE OF THE FOURTH IN MONUMENT SQUARE.— The evening of the approaching anniversary of American Independence will he appropriately observed at Monument Square, by the reading of the Declaration of Independence, the delivery of an oration, music, and a brilliant display of fireworks.

TIME OP BEST ILEAT, 2.59! The great race between these two celebrated horses over the Central Course at Herring Run, came off, as pre viously announced, yesterday afternoon, and the concourse of people present evidenced the interest felt in this trial speed, not only by our citizens, hut by the lovers of sports of the turf in New York, Philadelphia, Washington and other cities, all of which were largely represented. The number of tickets received at the gate showed the at tendance to number near four thousand. The day proved most propitious, for this season of the year, there being a fresh breeze blowing throughout the afternoon; and with the view of sparing the horses as far as possible, they were not called to the score until 5 o'clock. The track, considering that it is a new one, was in fine condition, though its being so fresh and soft ren. dereil the race more a test of the power, than of the speed of the horses. The proprietors of the track, Messrs. Mc* Cann, Jewell anil Murphy, had pledged themselves to have good order preserved, which pledge was fully redeemed, as we do not believe a race ever passed off in a more or derly manner than did this one, all appearing to enter into the spirit of the sport in an unusually rational manner. Their police arrangements were made under the direction of Deputy Sheriff Francis J. Wheeler, of the county, who had a force of twenty special deputies, headed by John Graham, to aid him. The race proved not only a highly interesting, but a fair and square one, and the record will show it to have been the best, in point of speed, ever witnessed in this section. Previous to the start the mare was the favorite, the odds offered being, in many instances, three to one, though the betting was rather light upon the ground. The horses being called, they came to the score in fine condition. LANCET looking so fresh as to give indications of sharp work, which had the effect of creating some con fidence on the part of his friends, and the betting became rather lively, upon the above specified terras. The judges chosen were Messrs. Carville I>. Cockey, William 0. Welsh and David Vance, all of this city. They announced that, owing to the heat, the rules relative to weight would not ho enforced—the weight of the drivers being about equal. The mare was handled by lier old master, James McMann, and the horse by Sam. McLaughlin. FLORA having won the track, they took their places for the FIRST HEAT. —After several ineffectual attempts at a start, and considerable scoring, they came up in line and "got off" well together, the mare being slightly in the lead, and held hard to the first quarter post, which she passed about two lengths in the advance, in 37 seconds.— The horse here made a noble dash at and "closed in" with her, hut it was evident that she had speed in reserve, as she soon shook him off, and taking the lead by some two lengths, maintained this position to, and passed the half mile post in 1.15. On the third quarter the horse again came up handsomely, and compelled the driver of the mare to loosen his hold, when she again stepped out to a two lengths lead, and in this position they reached and enter ed the last quarter, or home stretch, when the horse made a gallant "brush," and showed the will, at least, to win. She soon, however, caused him to fall some three lengths in the rear, which she led him to the stand, and which was passed in 2.30. Both horses went this mile without a sin gle break, and the time made was estimated as equal to 2. 27, on a well beaten track. Neither showed any dis tress] as yet, and each dried off well. After a breathing spell of twenty minutes, they were again called to the score for the SECOND HEAT. —Upon the third trial, they again got a good "send off," being side and side when they passed the stand. About midway of the first quarter, the mare broke and the horse passed to the lead by about a length. The mare recovered, however, in a few steps' and closing with him, they passed the quarter post neck and neck, in 37 seconds. The mare again broke upon the second quarter, and the horse gained the advantage of at least two lengths, hut the mare made a powerful "dash" at him, and so far closed the gap that he led her but one length at the half-mile post, which was passed in 1.14. The mare again took her place by his side before reaching the home stretch, and in this manner the entered upon it, and came down at a dashing pace, hut the horse breaking, about mid-way, she took the lead by some three lengths. lie soon recovered and pressed her so hard to the stand as to reduce it one-half, and thus they camct home in 2.29. The impression gained ground that Ihe mare had no been pressed to her full speed, even upon the horn stretch, SIOO to sls were offered by her backers, and found no takers. The horse appeared to be somewhat distressed by his hard work in this heat. They both, however, cool ed off well again, and at the end of twenty minutes made their appearance upon the scofe in, apparently, as good condition as in the first instance, though the chances of the horse's extending the race beyoud this heat appeared to be regarded by his friends as a "forlorn hope." THIRD HEAT. —They got off ifansomely together upon the first trial, passing the stand side and side. The mare again broke before reaching the quarter post, but recov ered so quickly that they passed it as they had started, in .18 seconds. Thus they continued, both evidently working hard to the half-mile post, which they passed in 1.15#. The mare soon after, however, quit company with the horse, and took the lead by two lengths, in which position they entered upon the home stretch, when the horse strug gled nobly to close with her, but again losing his "foot" ing," he broke before he could accomplish it, which en abled the mare to open a gap of three lengths, which she maintained to the stand, this heat being made in 2.33. SUMMARY. FLORA TEMPLE 1. 1. 1. LANCET 2. 2. 2. Time—2.3o; 2.29; 2.33. Another trial between them will take place, on the same course, on Tuesday next, for a purse of $1,200, and still another match, at a higher figure, is on the tapis as we learn. That they are as nearly matched as possible, this race will show. FLORA is a little over twelve years of age, and has made her mile in 2 24# in harness; while LANCET, who is nine years old, has made a mile in 2.25# under the saddle. The laving of the railroad track from New Ox ford to Gettysburg, Pa., was commenced on Thurs day last.

Carr and Custace, who were shot in the late riot at Eighth and Market streets, were alive at the hospital last evening. Xo hopes are entertained of the recovery of the former. The Moyamensing Hose Company have been put out of service. The Shiffler were stopped by the Chief Engineer yesterday morning, while proceeding to the fire in Eighth street, and ordered home. On Tuesday evening, about six o'clock, Timothy Mc- Cartv and John McKane got into an altercation, which resulted in the latter receiving a blow on the head, which subsequently, it is alleged, led to his death. A man named Michael Clark was taken before Alder man Brazier yesterday,charged with having burglarious ly entered the jewelry store of M. 0. Bennett, Xo. 504 Race street. He was held in one thousand dollars bail to answer at court. The mean temperature of June, as ascertained by the thermometer at the Hospital, was 75# degrees, which is nearly four degrees above the average for the last thirty three years, and is the warmest June since 1831. The highest of the thermometer was 04. the lowest 54 degrees. On ten days the thermometer reached 90 degrees. The amount of rain was four and a half inches, all of which, except one-tenth of an inch, fell in 24 hours, from G I*. M. of the 11th to G P. M. of the 12th. WASHINGTON NEWS, JULY 1. The Oregon war rumors are supposed to he a fabrication. Gov. Mc.Mullin's letter was not official, and it is believed here that he was imposed upon. Captain Swords, Quartermaster at San Francisco, writes that he had received information of there-reported re verses of the troops, and states that he had been requested to hurry forward reinforcements and supplies. The Oregon steamer arrived at San Francisco only a few hours before the sailing of the Panama steamer. Gen. Clarke sends nothing to the Department, but his Ad jutant. Capt. McCall, writes that the rumors of disaster are unfounded. Senor Mata is here, and loaves to morrow for Xew Or" leans, and, it is understood, for Vera Cruz. The question is asked, if Jaurez's government, which he came to repre sent, is likely to succeed, why does he leave at such a critical time ? The administration has resolved to place a sufficient naval force on each side of the Transit route through Xica ragua to protect our citizens and to prevent obstruction of the passage on that great highway hy any cause what ever. It is thought from the language of the Paraguay gov ernment to Brazil, and from information received in other directions, that matters between Paraguay and this coun try are in a more favorable condition for settlement. It is believed that the President will have to take de cided measures to bring the Government of Xew Grana da to terms in settling the difficulties which the Cass Her ean Convention was intended to settle. MARYLAND NEWS. ALLEGHANY COUNTY. [ From the Cumberland Telegraph, July 1. ] DEAD FISH. —The branch of the canal on the east side of the Island, extending from Shriver's mill to the Cum berland Coal and Iron Company's basin, which is supplied with water from the race, exhibited a sight on Monday, which all lovers of the piscatory art must deplore. The shores, just at the edge of the water, were lined with thou sands of dead fish of all kinds, and the stench produced by the bloated and putrid mass was awful. Navigation will he resumed on the canal to-day. The work throughout its whole extent is now in good order. The slide of rocks at the tunnel and the sand bar formed at the seven locks, hftve been removed, and the breach in the tow-path, near Harper's Ferry, as well as that in Dam Xo. 4. have been repaired so as to permit the passage of boats. The Frostburg Bank has declared a semi-annual divi dend of five per cent., payable on the 10th inst. The Cum berland Bank of Alleghany has declared a dividend of six per cent, for the last six months, payable on and after to day. The weather in this region continues fine, hut most op pressive on account of the heat. We have seldom seen it hotter. The thermometer indicates daily a degree of heat ranging from 86 to U&in the shade. ARMY AND NAVY. THE UTAH ORDERS. GENERAL ORDERS, XO. 17. HEADQUARTERS OF THE ARMY, June 29,1858. On the supposition, which at this distance seems proba ble, that the Mormons no longer intend to oppose an armed resistance to the entrance of the United States troops into the valley of Salt Lake, the General-in-Chief, after full consultation with the Secretary of War, directs that the following disposition of the troops now in and on the march to the Department of Utah shall he made without delay: The troops to remain in the Department of Utah, under the command of Brevet Brigadier General Johnston, will be eight companies of the Second Dragoons, Phelps' Bat tery of the Fourth Artillery, Reynolds' Company of the Third Artillery, and three regiments of Infantry—the Fifth, Tenth, and either the Sixth or the Seventh. The ten companies of the Fourth Artillery and D and K companies of the Second Dragoons will for the present oc cupy the District of the Platte, as directed in General <>r ders Xo. 6 from the Headquarters of the Army, for the purpose of keeping open the communication between the Missouri and Utah. The troops in the District r.f the Platte will he subject to the orders of the commanding of ficer of the Department of Utah. Six companies of the First Cavalry will remain on the Plains during the summer, and till as late in the autumn as the grass and the season will permit; then to return to Fort Riley or Leavenworth, as may hereafter be deter mined. Whilst out they will make excursions among the Indian tribes whose conduct may have been suspected of unfriendliness, for the purpose of impressing upon them the power of the United States, and of confirming them in their present pacific profession. The commanding officer of these companies will keep the commanding officers of the military posts in the Platte district, and of forts Riley and Leavenworth notified where communications will find him. He will make reports hy every opportunity to de partment and general headquarters. The remaining companies of the First Cavalry to return at once to Fort Riley. Barry's and Hunt's batteries will be immediately sent back to Fort Leaven worth. "After completing the work of co-operating with the bat talion of the Sixth Infantry, in opening a road to Camp Scott, via the Cheyenne Pass, the company of the engi neer soldiers will return to West Point, New York. The troops sent from New Mexico as an escort tz Cap tain Marcy will he sent back to that department. Reliable, though not official, accounts of Indian hos tillties of some magnitude, in Washington and Oregon Territories, making it advisable to strengthen the force now in that quarter, a regiment of infantry, either the Sixth or the Seventh, (probably the former,) as the com mander in Utah may determine, will be sent, as soon as he can safely spare it, to Fort Walla Walla. Lieutenant Colonel G. If. Crossman, Deputy Quarter master General, and Captains P. T. Turnley and George H. Paige, Assistant Quartermaster, are assigned to duty in the Department of Utah, and under instructions of Brigadier General Harney, will accompany the trains and troops for the Utah Department. Captain W. S. Hancock. Assistant Quartermaster, will also be placed on duty with these trains, ami will he sent with the regiment of Infantry to the Department of the Pacific, to be assigned to duty by the officer commanding in Oregon and Washington Territories. Brevet Major E. D. Babbitt. Assistant Quartermaster, will be stationed at Fort Laramie. Captain W. L. Cabell, Assistant Quartermaster, is as signed to duty at Fort Kearney. Captain M. I). L. Simpson, Commissary of Subsistence, will immediately on the receipt hereof, proceed with the order in the most expeditious manner to overtake Briga dier General Harney, and report to him for the special duty of superintending, under his orders, the arrange ments of the Commissary Department, made necessary by the charges herein ordered. After completing this duty lie will rejoin his station at Fort Leavenworth. Surgeon J. J. B. Wright and the other medical officers now under Brigadier General Harney, will continue on duty with the troops, or, with the exception of Surgeon Wright, go to Utah with the Seventh Infantry recruits, &<■., as that commander may direct. The destination of the officers of the Topographical En gineers, heretofore assigned to duty with the troops for Utah, will not be changed. They will proceed to Depart ment Headquarters, and report for duty to Brevet Briga dier General Johnston. General Harney will also give such orders as may l>e necessary to send forward the officers, recruits and re mounts tielonging to or destined for the corps already in Utah, and such further instructions to carry into effect the provisions of this order as he may find the state of the ser vice to call for. After accomplishing this duty, he will return to St. Louis, Mo., and assume command of the De partment of the West. Assistant Adjutant General D. C. Buell will remain at tached to the staff of Brigadier General Harney, and ac company him to St. Louis, there to resume his position at the headquarters of the Department of the West. If, in his march to the West. Brigadier-General Harney should receive satisfactory intelligence that the voluntary submission of the Mormons to the federal authorities, as sumed in the preamble to this order, is not to he relied upon, but, on the contrary, serious resistance to the en trance of our advanced forces into Salt Lake Valley on the part of these people is probable, the General, in the exer cise of a sound discretion, will continue to advance with the whole of the reinforcements now en route, for that Ter ritory, or with such parts thereof, in addition to the Sixth and Seventh regiments of Infantry and Reynold's Battery, as to him may seem necessary; and, personally, the Gen* eral will continue with the partial reinforcements, or re turn and assume command of the Department of the West as he may prefer.

CHARLES KEAN'S NEW DRAMATIC SPECTA CLE. f From the London Times, June 14. ] Dn Saturday tiijrht Mr. and Mrs. Charles Kcan took their annual benelit at the Princess' Theatre, ?'\i s 'S na ''"/.ed the event by such a "revival" of the Merchant, of Venice," that one of the commonest pieces in the dramatic repertory of London, was ,"" ver ted, as if bv in agio, into something that 1a VU r bee " sco " n before. Mr. Charles Kean h .i s accustomed part, Shvloek, Mrs. . ; i , her well-known character, Por i vimr I j evt ' l ' t helesß ) the whole manner of car rch- new a , or the stave was so en • , . ' , ! n 'en the familiar situations on nt VI ' ave v""" regarded from a fresh h r a i" 1 W:,s l '" ! novelty obtained by means o a departure from Shakespeare. On the contrary, Shakespeare was approached more close! v than usual, inasmuch as the of Morocco and Arragon, omitted from the ordinary actincr ver sion of the play, were restored on Saturday to their position as competitors for the hand of 'Portia.— Indeed, whereas tli a lory of Portia and her caskets has hitherto seemed only subordinate to that part of the action in which Sh vloek and Antonio are the chief figures, full justice is now done to the whole of the plot as designed b v the author, and thus a play that has hitherto been attractive solely on ac count of certain isolated scenes, is now interesting from beginning, to end. In elaborate decoration the Merchant of Venice is surpassed bv none of the famous "revivals" at the Princess' Theatre, but it has this advantage, that the story is rather eluci dated than entangled by the ornamental accessories that are so liberaly introduced. In the first place, by employing every possible accessory of scenery anil costume, Mr. Kean has rendered the work thoroughly Venitian in its as poet. Pictures of wondrous beauty, executed by Messrs. Grieve and Tel bin, groups and dresses, the result of archaeological research, perpetually keep the peculiarities of \ enice as exhibited on the place of St. Mark, on the Canals, on the Kialto, anil in the llall of Justice, before the eyes of the spectator. Superadded to the interest of the dra ma is that produced by the representation of a complete series of the ''beauties of Venice;" and even those scenes that are the least interesting as far as action is concerned become so many local il lustrations. However, as wo have already observed, this ex tensive series of pictures by no means encumbers the play. The very arrangements that render the aspect ot the stage thoroughly Venetian also give variety and new significance to the business of the scene. Ihis is particularly the case in the second act, which is likely to make as great :i sensation as the famous "episode" in "Richard II," as a master piece of historical illustration, while at the same time it is marked by a novel and ingenious method ot earring on the part of the story which comprises the meeting of Launcelot (Jobbo with his father, and the elopement of Jessica. The whole of the action belonging to this portion of the plot takes place in the front of Shylock's house without any exhibition of the interior, hut, then, Shy lock's house stands near a bridge placed across a canal, with an arch wide enough to allow the passage of a gondola filled with living occupants. Thus when (Jobbo comes to see his son he is forced to descend the bridge, and the feebleness displayed by Mr. Meadows in the course of this achievement comes in as a new contrast to the robust humor of Mr. Harlev, who is playing Launcelot in the fore ground. Hassanio and the others when, during this act, they make their appearance on the stage, in variably enter by moans of gondolas, which regu larly pass and repass under the bridge, and thus a. complete novelty in the way of grouping is ob tained. Jessica, already endued with extra inter est from the circumstance that she was plaved on Saturday by Mrs. Kean'sniece, Miss Chapman, who —perfect novice to the stage, performed the char acter in a most pleasing and intelligent manner, gained additional sympathy from the scene amid which she was placed. We are accustomed to see Jessica in a very ordinary sort of room and at a very ordinary sort of window and she makes no verv great impression. Rut now the fragile form of the delicate though not over-scrupulous damsel appears among the wild erness of bridges and canals, and she acquires a pic turesque value. Lorenzo, when he would abcostlier, must mount the steps of a bridge and stand in the fashion ot a mediaeval troubadour; and when he would carry her ott'he must deposit her safely in a gondola, which affords a much more effective plan of escape than a mere run off at the wing. The in troduction of a throng of Carnival maskers, who, after the flight of Jessica, occupy the stage with their noisy (lances and revels, may perhaps offend some rigid Shakespearian* who simply "hear of it. Those who see it will at once forgive the innovation, on account of the living picture which is its bril liant consequence. The edge of the canal, the bridg es in the tore and hack ground, are thronged with joyous Bacchanalians of the sixteenth century; the stream itself is covered with gondolas variously illn initiated; and altogether an effect is produced of a kind totally unkown to the London"playgoer. The "Hall ot the Senators," in which Antonio's trial takes place, is arranged on a totally new prin eiple, and the genius of the manager, in making use ot his masses and in forming pictures to height en the dramatic interest of the situation, is dis played to a most remarkable degree. The Sena tors, who act as Judges, all visibly sympathise with the incidents that take place before them. Thev shrink with horror when the Jew whets his knife to cut the flesh from Antonio; they murmur approba tion when the disguised Portia apostrophizes mercv. 'I he tearfulness of Antonio's position was never thoroughly exhibited till now. According to the old plan he stepped somewhat aside to unbutton his waistcoat with a display of fortitude that might suffice for an encounter with a dentist. Now, he is forcibly held back by the jailor that Shylock mav take his abominable forfeit; the Jew malces a rush at him, and even the audience, forgetting the story for a moment, cannot avoid a sensation of uneasi ness. The scenes that take place at Belmont, the sup posed residence of l'ortia, are so admirably con trived, with regard not only to beauty but to dra matic purpose, that, as we have before hinted, they scarcely yield in interest to the rest of the play. A saloon more exquisitely perfect than that in which the caskets are exhibited for choice could not have been devised had an architect been employed in lieu of a scene-painter to give reality to the picture. The lady herself, too, gains considerably by the re storation of the luckless suitors from Morocco and Arragon. Mrs. Kean's acting in the trial scene, her delivery of the speech on mercy, the benevolent solicitude she evinces even for the vindictive .lew, and the vivacity with which she sustains the last act, are already well known: but the state of sus pense in which she is placed when she hopes that Hassanio's predecessors will not win the prize, af fords a new opportunity for depicting the finest sha dings of emotion, of which she avails herself to the utmost. The attitude of thankfulness into which she and all her attendants are thrown when the Prince of Morocco has wrongly selected the golden casket, and the group that is formed round the lady's throne while "Tell me where is fancy bred" is sung, and Bassanio is pondering on the objects offered to his gaze are, in point of fact, living pictures that might be advantageously copied for tin? illustra tions of the play-book. As for the "Avenue to Portia's house," which occupies the stage during the fifth act, it is one of the most beautiful moon-lit scenes ever seen within the walls of a theatre.- Here again, tin- necessity of ascending and descend ing a flight of steps imposed on the characters im - parts variety to the action and gives new life to the business of the situations. Indeed, being taken into consideration, we may venture to declare that the "Merchant of Venice"is Mr. Kean's crowning achievement. The tine acting of Mr. Kean as Shvloek, the in tensity of his rage, the quickness of his eye, the depth of his pathos, and the conception prevalent throughout that the Jew is a wronged man, and, therefore entitled to some degree of sympathy in spite of his vindictiveness, is already known to the public. We would observe, however, that on Sat urday, far from being outshone by the brilliancy of the surrounding decorations, the Jew remained as conspicuous as the most fastidious Shakespearian could desire. With respect to the other characters we may briefly say, that Mr. Ryder's Bassanio, somewhat on a large scale, is distinguished by a frank, manly bearing, that the pathetic lines of Antonio are spoken with genuine feeling by Mr. Graham: that the "nothings" of Gratiano are ut tered with pleasant foppery by Mr. W. Lacy; that the Nerissa of Miss Leclercq is sprightly, though not altogether devoid of affectation: and that the mild, ladylike performance of Jessica by Miss Chap man promises a valuable addition to the Princess' company. As for the Launcclot Gobbo of Mr. Hurley, and the old Gobbo of Mr. Meadows, they are fine relics of the full-colored style of comic representation that the " laudatur temporis arti " —in this particular not unreasonably laments with other pecu liarities of those palmy days of histrionic art, when even the subordinate characters of a long list, could be sufficiently well acted to merit an elaborate description. For the manner in which every per sonage, from the humblest supernumerary upward, is]made conducive to the purpose of the whole, the manager cannot be too highly commended. In the art ot employing every available resource to work out a conception Mr. Kean has perhaps never been equaled. LAWS OF DIVORCE.—WE have thirty-two States, and there are almost as many different laws of di vorce as there are States. The reader may see some of these differences by the following state ment: | 1. In the States of Georgia, Alabama, and | Mississippi, two-thirds of the Legislature must j concur with a decision by the court to make a di ! voice. " , 2. in Delaware, Virginia, South < arohna, Lou j isiana, and Missouri, nn divorce can be granted but | by special act of the Legislature, and South Caroli na has never granted a divorce. :i. In the States of Connecticut, Ohio, and Illi nois all divorces are total. ... 4 In Massachusetts, .New 5 ork, and North Car olina nothing but adultery is cause of divorce. 5 j n minois two years absence only is a cause of divorce. . In Indiana, we believe, anything is a cause in the discretion of the court. In tlie recent Presby terian Assembly, at Chicago, an elder from that State rose, on the trial of Mr. Shield, and said that as he came from Indiana he desired to put on record that Amos Davis goes against divorce.— Cincinnati ! Gazette. At the late session of the Texas Legislature an act was passed establishing a Court of Claims, lie fore whom the Ist, "id, 3d, and 4th classes of head right certificates, and all bounty and donation land warrants, must be presented for registry and ap proval, before the first day of September, 1858, or they will be forever debarred.
