MOW DA Y, Jl'LYlT, 1*37. The news by the Express Mail will be found on our first page. fttlU Later from Liverpool.? The Storm Thtrkfntuj;. Through the politeness of our Boston correspond ent, we are enabled to lay before our readers addi tional information from Europe. At this trying mo ment, every item of intelligence is looked lor with in creased interest. The krig Old Colony, Capt. Crosby, arnved at Bos ton on the evening of the 14th instant, bringing dates from Liverpool to the 6th ol June, and London to ~"lhe 5th. In the Liverpool Mail, of the 6t i June, the mer chants of this country are most mercilessly abused for their withholding remittances, and the accusation is stated in round terms, that thty have wantonly and purposely sicindlcd the merchants and manufac turers of England, of a sum not less than seren mil lion* of pounds sterling. The same paper also as serts (hat it is part and portion of our p-licy tv swin dle, and cheat anddeceive! What is more, says the same Journal, the laws of the United States are made for the pnrpose of swindling Europe ! ! In this thoughtless indulgenceof spleen, we see more of truth than is imagined. That ihe mercantile com munity of America should take care of themselves first, is one of the great laws of self-preservation ? that they have attempted to do so, and signally failed, is unquestionably true ? but that they entertained any nettled design of cheating the merchants and manufac turers of England out of their just dues, is by no means true, as the editor of the Liverpool mail will discover be fore the end of June. Let him look at home! Have not ^he British merchants, almost in a body, refused to ho nor bills drawn on them from this country, predicated^ ?n actual shipments of produce,? received the produce ?sold it ? and applied the monies so received to the payment of our debts? And was not this done with out the knowledge or permission of our shippers? What is all this but a wanton violation of com mercial faith 7 No, no, let the English merchant pluck the beam out of his own eye, and then tell us of our imperfections. We have paid, and are now paying, the whole of our debt to them at a most pain ful sacrifice. Because England is destined to suffer, and that too most severely, her journalists arc trying to throw the blame on us. Shame gentlemen! You have overtraded, overbanked, and overdone thing*, as well as Americans. Reap the bitter fruits of your folly. A bitter cup it will be, for we have just finished our harvest. The Mail says, that "certain Directors of the Bank of England held paper of the American houses which they supported until their paper was paid, and that a* soon as they were free themselves, they Voted against any additional aid to the concerns which they had previously favored and propped!!" Noble and disinterested conduct 1 Yet these are the preachers of commercial morals. Liverpool Cot tun Market , June 6.?

The packet ship Europe, of the 16ih May, sailed from this city on the 19th, carrying out large remit tances from the swindlinu American merchants. Should sho get in before the London packet of the 10th, the news of our Bank suspensions will not cre ate such alarm, as they will at once see in this move ment the release of specie from this country. The Liverpool Mail of the 6th reports off". an American ship, with a black ball, at 5 o'clock, P. M., on the 5th. Thia is probably the Europe. What will the English journalists say when they hear of our Bank suspensions 1 We shall get, by and by, a delectable character among our transatlantic brethren. IaiPoaTAirr Tbial. ? Thesuitof John Windtagainst the Commercial Bank, to compel ihem to make good their promises to pay, will be tried tomorrow morning at 1 1 o'clock, in the court of Common Pleas. This trial is of the utmost importance, to the public gener ally. It will now be discovered whether any jury will countenance the defrauding of an individual of his just rights, by the speculating banka ; or, whether their worthless "promises to pay," are to be stuffed down the throats of the community, whether it will or no. Mr. Windt deserves great praiae for thus fearlessly testing the question. May he go on and prosper ! The notes held are chiefly new issues of til, 12, 13, and $14 value. When Mr. Bronson brought his ac tion, for 86,000, against the Manhattan Bank, it was called a case of the "Rich" sgainst the "Rich." We presume the ease tomorrow will be cslled the "Poor Mrmt the Poor." Or By the England, Captain Waite, upwards of eighty emigrants go back to their homes. Why is thM? Because they can gut no employment here is New York the whole Union ? Why do they not go to Indisna or Illinois? in a day or two, we ahall show the emigrant where he can go, and with a little industry procv.re a permanent home for himself snd family. So, all yc strangers, who can get no work here, rend the Herald of tomorrow, and you will find something advantageous. tr A Urge quantity of goods, consisting of beds, bodding, snd female apparel, which wm stolen a short time since, from R. Sterner, was found yesterday by officer Drieeback. It appears they wereatolen by one W m Allen, an old offender, who sold a part of them to Rdwm Foley, in whose possession they were found. Allen slated to Foley that his wife wss desd, snd thst he wanted u> sell out for the purpose of going South, and finally persuaded Foley to take a part. Allen was committed snd Foley discharged. Q- It is a singular fact, that while we have very little small change in circulation, and are deluged wuh small bills and shin plasters, that change lamore plenty than ever throughout the eastern states, with the exception, perhaps, of the large cities.

Master Beanett'a Sentence Day- Beautiful Sunrise at Br?N>klya-OpcniiiK of the Court of IcatloMt? Mr. John Haggerty'a Maiden Nptcch-Mittor Bennett'* Keply? Cousulta lion of Hie Court? Postponement of the Ken tenre? Finale. <>n Saturday morning last the sun rose in cloud- ( less majesty, over the orchard covered bills of Long Inland, and poured down his rosy beams upon blot- j som, tree, breeze, wave, mast, t-pire, and the whole | busy scene ol animated nature, around the island of I New ^ ork. Not a cl?nd bigger than a fig leaf was to be seen in heaven above. The fresh morning breeze kissed the apples on the tree ? brushed the dew from the trembling leaves of the grove, and, breathing through the lattice, slightly liftwd the ringlets from the cheek of beauty asleep in thecottage. In the great cty, the loafers began tost rfrom the steps of the rich, and the Battery and Washington Square gave up their lodgers for the night? rubbing their eyes, and sneezing in harmony with the morning cock-crow. It was the great and eventful day on which an edi tor wa9 to receive his sentence for publishing a house as having failed, that failed not, and the whole world stood still in breathless expectation to hear the awful mandate of the law. j At 10 o'clock the barber's shop, No. 3 Beekman street was crowded and crammed. Why bo? Mas ter Bennett had given out that he was to be shaved there precisely at that hour. So the people gathered into the little place. " Is that him ?" "is that him?" "is that him?-' flew from bp to lip m whispers as strangers came in to be shaved. But he did not come. It was a humbug. Master Bennett did notget shaved that day. He saved a sixpence in order to help to pay his fine? and he acted wisely in so doing. At 12 o'clock the avenues leading to the Court of Sessions were crowded? all panting to see the prose cutor and the prosecuted, to catch a passing glance of Of Mr. John Hsggerty who hod the surprising firm ness to bring Master Bennett, the Grand Mogul of the press, to his bearings. At a few minutes past twelve, the Court opened? His Honor, Recorder Riker, attended by their Honors, Aldermen Hoxie and Smith, walked up and took each a seat on the bench. There was a bustle in the crowded hall out side. "Hats off," cried " Old Hays," and hats flew off heads like the leaves from the trees in autumn. " Silence there," cried "Old Hays"? and silence reigned snpreme, so that a whisper could be heard, or a pin drop on the floor. Below the bench, Mr. District Attorney Phenix, with a good-humored smile on his face, took his seat. Near by sat Mr. JohR Haggerty, the prosecutor, calm, quiet and respectable in appearance. Around all these, young lawyers, fa shionable loafers, idle fellows, and other persons stood, sat, or edged their way into good company or a seat. Around the bench hung Justice Bloodgood, and a few other police luafcrs, like clusters ef wasps round an hone- 1 beehive. In a few seconds the prosecuted made his appear ance from the side door. He was seen passing, quiet ly and alone, acrosj the Park, with a cane in his hand, and now and then casting his tye towards Broad way, to catch the last look of the lovely maidens who promenade there. He entered the Court Room through the private entrance. Soon after the entrance of the prosecuted, Mr. John Hsggerty rose and proceeded to the stand, where he was sworn. L nder this form however, lie took the opportunity to introduce a ve y neat and sensible speeeh, wh ch being his maiden speech we have en deavored to report fur the benefit and example of all the great speakers and prosy orators of the day. Un like the terrible speech of Hugh Maxwell, which wns inhumanly murdered in embryo, by th c plea of guilty, put in by Master Bennett, it confined itself, like good home-made Jersey cider, to the matters at issue, and came directly from the inmost heart and affec tions, and went directly in the same direction among the hearers ! Here it is '' 1 do not mean to follow up the civil suit," said Mr. Haggerty, "I only wish tostatetn the Court that the publications made were entirely false. Also the other publications that followed. 1 never was banR rupt, nor mean to be so. Nor am 1 a director of any bank, nor own any bank stock. I am not an Irish man, nor is uiy name O'Haggerty. I was born in New Jersey of Irish parents. He also connected my name with Rosina Townsend, for reasons unknown tome. Then as to my beginning the world with a pair of old breeches? I do not think it material to cor rect that statement here, where I have lived over fifty years. I mention these things to the Court, to sheiw that there was malice in the publications against me I think it was my duty to do as I have done." [Deep not loud applause from Master Benneit away in the corner.] Mr. David Graham, Jr. as counsel for Mr. Bennett, rose to say a few words. He observed that the state ment made by Mr. Haggerty referred not to the in dictment to which Mr. B. had confincd his affidavit. That as it brought up new matter, in a new light, he begged the Court to postpone sentence until thede fendanl could hand in his explanations on the points at issue. The Recorder and the two Aldermen then conferred together for a few seconds. The Recorder spoke:? "The element of Fire," said the Recorder, "is one of the moat powerful aad useful substances in nature." [The Recorder probably has not witness**! the wonders of electtei-magnetisHi. If he has not, we advise him to make a visit to Ce?ok A Davenport s magnetic wheel. He will **? in opera tion, n ercster and more mysterious iwwerthan Fire? the power of eloctricity, magnet ism, galvanism or what ' Vfir S mysterious agent of thcuniv?r*e may be f". . 7* ??wer m I,hy"'r" ??*! cm only b. ,?,ra| l( i lied, by the powrr of original intellect, imbued wiih th.- knowledge of thirty centuries, and applied lathe newspaper press.) "Fire," continued the Recorder, is tj grin I in judicious hands ? but in incxprnenrrd or mischievous bands, it begets danger, and creates dis tress. Ho it is with the press. In the hands of wise an t good men, the press is a gn at and useful matiu in. nt in other hands it mybt perverted and made the causes of much evil. Touching this particular ea*e, MMreoort deems it most sgreeahle to strict jus tice to postpone further proceedings till next term.' On this decision being msds, a vis.hl? sensation was created throughout the immense audience. The de fendant stood a few mommts, cast his eyes over the Court, lawyers and audience, and quietly departed with his cane in his hand, and emerged at the a?me deor he had entered. The prosecutor slno disappear ed, with a great many of his auctioneer friends, who had accompanied him to the sacrifice. The Court proceeded to send the other ewnvicta some to the City Prison, some to the Penitenusry, some to Black well's Island, an.4 some to Sing Sing, where they will sing sing for years to come. And thus ended this awful affair for the present. Now, m rvply to the very neat maiden speech of Mr. ?gg?'iy I have at present only a few words to say. Originally, there were no hostile feelings between Mr. Hsggerty snd myself. There ceuld be none - for he neither knew me, sor I him. We never came in contact I neither knew him nor any of his (amily except by reputation, and that was favorable In the hst I published on the 1 1th of May, I included his name among others, under the belief that it was trie. As soon aa I learned that it wae incorrect, | made the , amt*di to him and to the others the next day. I re. pealed several time* this correction, and expressed tnv regret, in every form, thai I had given him cause of offence. Mr. Haggerty, hswever, did not heed my corrections. He brought criminal and civil suits upon me, and threw all the obstacle* m the way of my pro curing bail, that could be done. Ordinary bail waa objected to, and men of undoubted character and pro perty were aaeailed in the Wall street prints, because they had the audacity t* become my bail. By the conduct of the Conner and Knquirer, the American, I and Journal of Commerce, it was evident that an eflbit was made to intimidate any person from becoming my bail, so that 1 might be thrown into prtson. Hut this was not all. When Messrs. Davis <fc Brooks, and Burns <Jk Halliburton, withdrew- their suits, under the firm belief that there had been no ma lice in thepublication, Mr. Haggerty refused to follow their liberal and enlightened example. I have had for years a personal acquaintance with Mr. Burns, of the firm of Burns & Halliburton, and also with Mr. Davis, of the house of Davis & Brooks. They know enough of me to believe there was no malice in my disposition. I may commit an error ? as the best of men may ? but no more. Mr. Haggerty notonlypersistedin his double prosecutions? he and his sons even went so far as to speak of niein society, inn manner that would grate on tiny one's feelings. Without disparaging an iota from the business talents and respectability of Mr Haggerty, I know my own character and my own principles suf ficiently well to make me believe, that as a man, as a moralist, as a member of society, as an accountable being I stand on as elevated a position as any indi vidual in New York. Ih private life, in public charac ter, in personal talents, I can compare notes with Mr. Haggerty, or any other man in the community. It is not 'he scowling countenance, or the undelivered speech, ofHugh Maxwell that can intimidate me. I know my intellectual strength ? my moral position ? and my unalienable rights, in the great family of this world, and it is not in wealth, or power, or combina tion to intimidate. I know I hare given great offence to many men in Wall street, for the boldness, the in trepidity and the success of my newspaper enterprise; but towardsMr Haggerty I never had any but thekin?l est feelings, or spoke of him but in the most respectful maimer? till I thought he unnecessarily changed hie position, and became the persecutor, instead of the prosecutor. The intense hate borne towards me by the Journal of Commerce, the Courier & Enquirer, and the New Vork American, only springs from the successful energy and talent of a young man without friends and properly, contrasted with the weakness, imbecility, indolence, and insolence which character ize these fatuitous journals and their fatuitous editors. They call ine "an outcast"? "a scoundrel" ? "a va gabond." They are at work nightand day in society to prejudice people against me. And yet I can compare public and private characters with these editors, and make them blush as red as sin, and look as pale as death, at the contrast. I have no fear ?f the future. Every thing will yet come right. Even Mr. Haggerty and myself will live to see the day when we shall both look back, and laugh to sec the tragical, Tom-Thumb importance given, by mere accident and misapprehension, to an affair, farcical only from beginning to end. K. Prepare thyself; The hark i* ready, and the wind at help, 1 lie aMoriatea tend. and every thing UbeM r or England. ". For England? Ay, for Esgiand. Good. K.? Ho U it, if thouknewent our purpotes. H.? I *ee a cheruh that *ee* their). But come: For England ! Farewell? HamUt. Celeste, one of the most accomplished artistes , and the only one that may considered inbued with the true genius of her art in this country, embarks to day in the England for England? in the packet ship England, for the fatherland England. Celeste goes, as she herself said the other evening in the Bowery, to take one more look on the sunny vales and the vine clad lulls of her native land? la belle Frnnct ? before she retires altogether from the bustle, the ac tivity, the stormy enthusiasm of a life of genius? be fore she settles down finally in her own beautiful re sidence near Baltimore, where she intends to spend the remainder of her days amidst the roses and hya cinths?the wild flowers and wilder forests of her adopted country. Celeste came to this land aboat ten years ago young, graceful, fairy like, beautiful, unknown, but win ning as much by her manners as by her talents. She is now in the full tide of successful genius ? a pre siding spirit in the "poetry of motion." Noar/i?/? is, or has been, in this country that ever could make the slightest approach to the higher regions of tha art in which ahc moves. Madame Ronzi Veatris was t'/.e only one we have Been on thia side of the Atlantic with whom comparison can be made. The peculiar character of Veatris then, with that ofTaglioni now, was beauty, grace, snd expression. There is beaaty and grace in Celeste, but sublimity and magnificence are also her natural and peculiar elerncnta. We remem ber Ronzi Vestns well. She was in dancing, what Pasta waa in music. Celeste, like the lamented Malibran, has variety, power, grace, and above all sublimity and versatility of genius. She possesses the highest poetry of the art, sometimes graceful as the clasaic models of Attica, then imaginative as the Ori ental?then picturesque as the Ootluc. To the art of dancing sad motion, she hss given the language of the heart and the higher emotions. She goes to Europe? to France? to Italy? the lands of the drama and the song. Is it not probable she may begin a career there, in her peculiar line, that will place her, at Iraat, side by side, with Tsghoni in the estimation of the world ? The sensation she crcated in Europe during her former visit is not for gotten. Wherever she goes the good wishes snd as pirations of her admirers follow her. We consign Celeste to the care of the winds of heaven, aad the wavesaf ocean, which with the skilful management of Captain Waite, will speed her swiftly across the broad, blue waters of the Atlantic. On Saturday af tsrnoon, we visited tha gsllsnt ship, just to say our favsnte prayer, from tha Vespers of the Holy Virgin, over the pretty rabin that reeeives Celesta, and to speak a word to the Captain in behalf of the gentle spirit! Captain Wane choked ofl" my prayer in the middle with a glnssof ex quisite champagne? saying " all's tight? I'm just hauling out? I'll put you aahore here- handsomely men, hsndsomely men," said the Captain to the tailors. " Handsomely sir, hand somely sir," replied the sailors to the csptain. "Here gentlemen," said the captain, again turning to us ? "here's tha small boat-good bye and God bleas you ? ?od bless you and good bye. All's right"? snd with this we descended the rattlingsand left the ship, tha captam'a " big manly voice" still swelling over the gallant England "handsomely men? handsomely men,1' the men hsuling und reiterating "handsomely sir? handsomely sir." So, therefore, we commit the great, the beautiful ar?M/< to the care of captain Wsitc snd the Ergland ? Captain Waite and the England to the care of the winds of Heaven and the waves of Oeean - and the winds of Heaven and the waves af Ocean to the care ?f Him who gave thaapaod of thought to the one, and covered the beautifiil crests of the other with the driven enow. Amen. tl T The penny papers at the South and West are springing up, like muihroons from putridity : see they do not wither snd rat aa soon. We were a penny once, but that is past. Gbeat Influence or Recobdeb Rikbb and the Coi/bt or Sessions ? Bovden, Hamblin, Bennett, &c.? Hitherto it kaa been supposed thai the remark Bble influence of Recorder Riker and the Court of Sessions was confined to the loafers ef the Five Points, to the pickpockets of the Fifty Points, or to the the thieves and rogues of all the other points of the compatta. Not so. Recorder Riker of late, Heaven blew! bit sonne pow ! has exercised as wonderful a power over the fine arts, as over the coarser arts. Gastromomy, the drama, and newspaper literature, belong to the highest arts of Bocial life- Genius is re quired in each and all. The cook, the tragedian, and the editor occupy the fir9t ranks in civilization? the cook the very first. Nuw it is a remarkable circum stance in the history of the present age, that an ac complished judge, of a criminal court, should postx ss new and original power over those departments of the human mind? but so it is. Before Boyden, of the Astor House, was a convict in the Recorder's Court, he might have given tolerable dinners, and furnished good wines, but of late we have had a personal know ledge of the fact, that the private dinners, given in his private parlorB, are the most elegant and recherche that can be found in New York. We know nothing of his public tables? we arc no loafer? but his pri vate tables are truly excellent, admirable and en chanting. He has also become polished, agreeable, good tempered and civilized, which we attribute en tirely to his happy conviction in the Court of Sessions, and to his having been brought up before Recorder Riker to receive a sentence. The Astor House may henceforth be written down "A Number One," in the history of hotels in New York. Then again in relation to the drama. On Friday evening last, in company with several pretty ladies, we occupied a private box in the Bowery Theatre. Virginius was the play, and Hamblin, the convict, the star of the night. I never liked the acting of Ham blin, even in his days of innocence and virtue, but I must say that since his conviction he has improved astonishingly. His Virginius was most ably per formed. It was as good as McCready's ? better than Forrest's ? but not yet fully equal to John Kemfele s. But this inferiority to one great actor is easily account ed for. Hamblin is only a convict? he has not re ceived his sentence. When he reaches the sublime felicity of receiving the last touch from Recorder Ri ker, then we have not a doubt but he will outstrip ? all Greek, all Roman fame." He will exceed Kean, Kemble, Garrick, and Roscius, as much as he does now Edwin Forrest, and Donald McCready. Then again in relation to newspaper genius, the influence of Recorder Riker is equally great. We have heard of, read, and seen Bennett, the editor, but we never had such a high opinion of his talents as since he was hauled up before the Recorder and had to plead guilty to an indictment kindly brought against him by John Hnggerty in the court ef ses sions; and thus,byhis plea of guilty, he entirely stran gled in its birth and conception, one of the greatest speeches that ever Hugh Maxwell was cocked and primed with? a victory witnout a parallel in the his tory of forensic eloquence in New York. We are persuaded that Bennett wants nothing now to be come the greatest editor living, but the last touch from the Recorder, whose remarkable influence and original jurisdiction thus extends to gastronomy, the drama, and newspaper literature. If the Wall street editors, or the stars of the Park, or the hotel keepers round town want to get the last touch in their several arts, they ought to get someone to haul them up before Recorder Riker, and by all means procure a conviction. As an act of mercy and charity, I have a great mind to get my friends, Colo no! James Watson Webb and Colonel Charles King both indicted. God knows they want something to put original ideas into their heads. Anotheb Boat Race.? This evening, at 4 o'clock, a boat race will comc ofl'betwoen the Falton Market and White Hall Boatmen. These boat races are capi tal things. In a short time, New York will be as fa mous for its boats and boat races, as Venice was for its gondolas and gondoliers. When will we see a fa shionable lady call for her boat bs readily as for he' coach? We shall certainly try and see this boat race. The coadnlier, the gondolier ? Ligbtlv |?lide? the gondolier. |-y?

He tries as hard as any man to get on. |~y Melo-dramas first became fashionable from the circumstance of the large number of supernnmeraries employed as soldiers, masquers, dtc. These were at first the sons of the nobility, who eagerly sought this method of displaying themselves, and quarrelled for the privilege of appearing in parts which now arc con sidered almost disgraceful. The processions, mock fights, and tableaux were then much more spirited and efleciive than at present. CT The Baron de S. had a passion for the stage. Not willing to wound the feelings of his family ? one of the oldest and proudest in Germany ? he assumed the name of Schmelker, and becameone of the most celebrated comic actors of the day. He died recently at Berlin. yVHow came the Rev. The-philus Fisk at Charles ton, S. S. We thought he was preaching radicalism at Concord, N.

It is the resort ef the fashionables of the Five Points, in both the winter and summer months ; and if justice had her sway, all Wall street would be tent thither to rusticate a year or two. Tmeatbe.? " Miss Elita Momer will esteem ita fa vor if the gentleman who threw her a puree on the night of her benefit, July 5th, will call on her mother at the Republican Hotel."

Durant, of Jersey city, has discovered that this country hss ita native Silk Worm as well astheold world, that spins as fine and soft a material as the imported. The co coon is much larger, yielding about 40 per more than the European worm. They are covered with a kind of shell ol compact and hardened silk, which seema to require moisture and warmth to eflect the process of hatching. Mr. D. is endeavoring to re medy this difficulty. The hatching being much later ihan the foreign worm, it is supposed that a se cond crop may he obtained in the same cocoonery. Another advantage in favor of the native worm is, it will feed on our native trees which put out earlier than the mulberry. Coubtof SaasiON^JJuly 15 ? Before the Recorder, De Forrest and Smith.

Officers Bowyer, G. F. Hays, and Welsh, arresteckon Wednesday and Saturday, three notorious characters, who have committed a series of depredations in this city and elsewhere. The manner of their apprehen sion deserves notice. On Wednesday last, at the dis charge of the watch, a mau was brought up for ex amination ?n a charge of assault and battery, who gave h;s name as Stagg. Bowyer imagined he was acquainted with the gentleman, and communicated his suspicions to Justice Lownds, who sent tbe pris oner over to Bridewell for further examination. ? Bowyer then went over and took a good look at him, entered into conversation, and soon discovered him to b? a notorious crack's man, named Joseph Strang, who, in conjunction with a man called Auguste Greet, (tried and convicted at the present Court of Sessions) had broken into and robbed the store of Mr. William B. Robinson, at Newark, N. J. Strang graduated three years ago at Sing Sing, to whence he will now return to finish his education. Upon discovering who his man was, Bowyer set about searching him, and found upon his person be. tween 80 and 90 copper cents, with a whole roll of ahin plasters, which led the officer to suspect that they were the proceeds of the robbery of some gro cery. With this clue te guide them, the three officers, Bowyer, Welsh, and G. F. Hays, went upon a search, and discovered that the grocery corner of Orchard and Grand streets had b. en broken into and plunder ed. They now had to find the thieves, who they were not long in ferreting out and securing. They called themselves Jim Medler, and Andrew and John Evans, all genuine jail birds, who have been wanted for a considerable time. In the past twelve or or fourteen days, no less than twenty different groce ries have been robbed in the following manner : ? one of these fellows would enter a grocery with a basket requesting charcoal, and while tbe storekeeper waa engaged in measuring it a confederate of the first would pass, with the greatest nonchalance, behind the counter, and deliberately empty the till of what money it contained. A fortunate escape is the consequence of the arrest of these villains. They had formed a plan ta rob the exchange office of Mr. John King, in Broadway. ? One of them was to enter at a time when Mr. Ring was absent, and present a $5 bill for exchange, his companion was to have a stone tied in his handker chief, with which he waa to knock the cleik down, and the confederates were then to proceed to rifle the store. Fortunately their iniquitous plan hss been frustrated. The entire gang have been fully commit ted for trial. fighting sn his own hook.? Some fun took place on Saturday attha North river, owing to the dogged neas and bellicose propensities of a John Bull cap tain, commander of tne brig Niagara, who, aa his name was Newbold, determined to let the Yankeea see that he was bold in a new and novel way. Our captain, it seems, had refused to haul off his brig to make way for another vessel according to custom, for which he was fined, and Marahall McCormick want on board to collect the money. Captain New bold, however, set him at defiance, and said?" if you don't sheer off; I'll make crab'a meat of you by throw ing you overboard." The marshall, not wishing to die a martyr, even in the good cause of collecting h? fees, departed to seek further aid, with which he re turned, thinking to overawe the warlike captain of the brig Niagara. The officer reckoned without his hast. Upon his hailing the brig, the Bntish ensign waa run up, and the captain, calling upon his crew to stand by him, declared he would fight his ship to the last ex tremity. A aecond time did the brave Marshall re treat, and came full of his wrongs to the poller, where he obtained a large reinforcement, which immediately made way for the pugnacious Captain Newbold? de termined upon reducing the obstinate Englishman to reason, and to compel! him to lower hia flag to the constituted authorities of the city. Drwadful surmises were formed as they proceeded ; little less than war to the knife's point being expect cp, but when they arrived, they found our heroic cap tain had gone to bed to sleep upon it, and was then actually snoring uway in his berth. The enemy, tlu<r? fore, wns easily surpnaed? was overpowered and a prisoner almost before he had time to exclsim against this invasion of his state department. He was borne away captive, and, not being particularly sober, remains in bridewell until he recovers hia senses, pays charges, and apologues for the fright he caused the marshal, and (he trouble he gave to the police officers. He may then cut stick ; so is it de creed. Pretty I'hurts.? Four young women, who stated their names to be Msrgarel Wiley, Jane Corria, Nan cy Leary and Margaret Mellon, were arreatcd, the two first named for stealing a cojple of pieces of ca heo, and the last three pieces of muslin from the store of Mr. Hiraui B.

They stated they were lrom Ireland; that they all resided together at No. 46 Catherine street, and all had husbaada at tea! Mr. Lowads said he should take time to see into this stsry, and in the mean time, waving all ceremony, sent the ladiea to bridewell AMunagtr in Distress. ? Mr W. Sefton, of the Fran klin Thiatre, on Saturday, tired with rehearsing bad plays snd listening to worae actors undertook totolatn himself with a comfortable bath, and to that end pro ceeded to the Battery? entered the floating bath ? de nuded himself, and was quickly floundering in the briny element. When he came to dress, sn awful sensation came over him, owing to his making the discovery that his gold watch and chain, valued at ?200, had been abstracted by eome Jemmy Twitcher, and was no where to ba found. Search waa made of all present, but the lepine waa not forthcoming. Mr. Sefton went away, plsying " real tragedy, and of fered $50 for the reaovety of hia property. Sunday morning a person named David Alonzo Hich, went into the bath, and th<- bartender, who waa keeping a bright lookout, perceived him diaw forth a gold watch. Stepping up lo him he asked " tbe time o'day" to which a reply waa made " I have no watch." The bartender therefore, certain of his cuatomer, re plied, "Yea, yoa have tbe watch you stole yester day." He immediately arrested RkIi, and brought him to the Police. Rich attempted a lame story al out buying the watch of a man on the Battery ; but ilna tale (lid not go as well as the water did, and Mr. | David Alanzo was sent to Bridewell.
