dunag the night who would not l?e delivered into the rusted?
ot the watrh, it the complaint egainit them ?a? required
to be made on oath ; or, if taken into custody,
would be released as oou as the witness was examined
on oath : and all w'i i .now any thing of the suWect, are
aware that nightly almost, persons are confined on the
complaint o! those who do not appear against them afterwards,
and who never iatsnded to appear against them ;
and i. is not a t .ire occurrence for the statement made hy
a complainant at the watch house, to differ materially
from his swora testimonywt the police office?indeed, it is
sometimes tho case, that the witness At the watch house
b'>rom<w the pri-oner at the policeofHee. In consequence

to he detained until the neat morning, and until
lisckarge I ' by the proper authority," unless they should
be unproperlv discharged, as implied in the quotation,
during the night ; but if magistrates confined themselves
to granting discharges in such cases, as it is here stilted
msv occur, there would be no just ground of complaint.
It is, however, proverbial tnat the reverse has hei n the
general practice of some Aldermen, who seldom or never
acted magisterially,except in discharging prisoners from
wa oh houses, and the practice, with all the evils which
have resulted from it may be attributed to th? inconsistency
and injustice of the present system.
'h. The Police Department should be under the control
of a chief o er ; lor although there would be districts
and si-Clio , there would be but one department,
and uniformity ot practice in the several districts, and harmonious
an 1 effective action when the main (oree of the
Police should be necessary, could only be secured by the
general super nteudence devolving on a competent head.

and the head of the Poliee : be it so ; and he i?
equally the head of every other department ot the city ;
for it is hia duty " to be vigilant and active in causing the
laws an l ordinances of h government of the city to be
duly executed and enforced," and " to exercise a constant
ii|>?rvision and control over the conduct and acts of all
subordinate officers." Yet he cannot conduct the business
of the departments, and we accordingly have a
rhief Engineer of th" Fire Department, and Superintendents
for almost all purposi-s. No man who has any
knowledge of the duties of the Mayor, or the business of
the Police Department, will pretend that the Mayor
can peilorm his daily duties in the Mayor's office, his
duties as Presiden' of the Board of Health, a* a Supervisor,
and as a director ol various institutions ? no
man will seriously contend that the Mayor can
faithfully discharge all the official duties here alluded
to, and alao devote to the Police Department, and circum.
stances connected with it, that time and attention which
would enable him to discharge the important duties of
chief officer ofPalice Tbe duties of the Mayor are already
sufficiently numerous, and what has been said above of
Tolice officers devoting all their time to the business of
the department, for the purpose of being well informed,
applies with full force to the chief officer
411 communications of great importance should be made
to the hoa l of the department, for the ends of justice have
been dsfeatcd by magistrates and officers being engaged
fn the pursuit of the sam>- object, without a concert of action;
andtha* the chief offic er may not be unjustly held
responsible i ir the character and conduct of the suhordi.
nates, and that proper discipline may be maintained, he
should be associated with the commissioners in the expelling
ol iucompetent and improper members.
7th. All laws and regulations for the health and cleanliness
of the city, as well as for the security of the citizens
and their "property, should be enforced* by the Police
Department, for the violation of the ordinances could not
escape their notices, and the laws woui 1 he rigidly enforced.
It is# not intended to recommend any new organization
of the Board of Health, but to suggest the propriety
and necessity of their views and measures being
carried into full effect liy a police prepared for any emergency.
The subject of properly lighting the city at night
is entitled to much consideration hire; as the security of
the citizens from accident or design makes it important;
and whether it be faithfully done, or shamefully neglectej,
may only be known to those persons who are on duty
nil night in the streets: the duty of lighting the city should
therefore be performed under the direction of the police,
specially as the city would sustain no loss by making
tbe station houses the depositories of oil that rema'ned af.
ici me itiuij"! nitu ueeii Mippnen. 1 nt1 suggesuons nere
made in relation to the duties of the police are strongly
recoaamended by motive* of economy, as their adoption
would render uonecesssrv the present arrangement, or
any other, respec'ing street inspectors, inspectors of pub.
lie places, of omnibusses, hacks and carts, and numerous
ther special officers But as the duties of some of the police
officers would require them to be continually in particular
wards, they should not he subject to the or lers of
several aldermen at the same time, and the subdivisions
of the districts should, for this and other reasons, be limited
to the boundaries of the wards, and each district should
comprise entire wards,
The most strict scrutiny should he exercised by the
department, within legal rules, of course, into the manner
of conducting business by pawnbrokers, keepers of junkshops,
and dealers in second-hand articles, for the facilities
afforded for the disposal or stolen good* en'ers largely
into the calculation when rubbery is meditated. And to a
police that will r> quire the prompt and continual actiOD
otits members, in all parts nf the city, must be confided
the power, and the imp rative duty assigned, to prevent
?treet-hee: line, which leads to idleness and crime; and to
such a police mu?t we resort to exterminate the hawking
of obscene papers and libidinous prints, the great source
of venality and profligacy.
The population of th- city has increased rapidly within
the seven years last past, and there is certainly as much
necessity for au efficient police now as there ever was,
and the lollowing remarks made by Chancellor Kent in
ISSfi, mat now he repeated with increased lorce:?"When
we comedo consider the actual wants of great numbers,
and the incessant temptations to heedless and lawless pursuits,
to pilfering, to intemperance,to disorders of all sorts,
in such a dense population as exist* in this city, and w ho
are always more or less under excitemen'.and the impulse
of the coilisnns and the storms of the passions, we cannot
but be deeply impressed with the importance to our peace
and safely of an BCtive and stern police.''
1 have here given a general outline of the improvement
which is reqnired.in my opinion, in the police department
of th city, hy th- wants and interests of the'eitizens; but
it would demand more time to complete a plan than 1
conl l devote to the subject, and abilities rar beyond my
fwet-ii'ion*, to give it practical eifect. A system ?f poire
might have all the characteristics herein contained,
and fad to produce the necessary reform: but I believe the
uggesti.-ns here made susceptible of detail that would
constitute a system under which, with good and efficient
officers an I mi n ruffianism would, to a very great extent,
be subdued: evil d?er? driven to places less dangerous lor
them to operate; temptation to crime removed from the rising
genera'ion; and the lives and property of our citizens
secured. But the atte mpt should not be made to rtlect
th-ae changes suddenly or simultaneously; they must be
produced carefully and gradually, hut with a view to the
ultimate object; the system should be put in operation not
only without commotion, but imperceptibly,except by its
results; it must b> free from stool-pigeoning, and the use
if secret-service money, and must in all things fully accord
with the institutions o( our country.
I am not prep ired to state what would he "the probahle
increase of expense, if any, attendant u|ion auch improvement,^"
at 1 have not ascertained the cost of the present
system, or completed a list ol officers and men, with their
amouat oi pav, for the plan in contemplation; but as the
annual cost of each watch post-n'he city is $912,60, two
men at $1,25 i>er night,and a* many of the present city and

be made, I think th" require,] improvement would be accomplished

New Yerk.]
1 do not pretend to have advanced any new ideas, although
the subject is not exhausted, nor have I been confined
to any plan as a model, but having been called on to

Herald for Et'rofk.?We shall publian, at three
o'clock this afternoon. Hit ex ra Ilerald for Europe.
It will contain the latest political, financial, thestriI
cal, commercial, and fashionable intelligence. Copies
in wrappers will be ready at the above hour to
send by the Caledonia, which leaves Boston to-morrow,
for Halifax aud Liverpool.
The letter bags of this steam ship will close at
j Harnden's, Gilpin's, and at the Post office, at a
quarter to 4 o'clock this afternoon.
important from iyindkkhook.?We understand
from the chateau (it Kindtrhook that Mr. Van Buren
and his friends will go into the democratic National
Convention, on the dtitrict syetem of electing the
members, which is the principle contended for by
JohnC. Calhoun and his friends. Mr. Van Buren,
it seems, is perfectly willing to take his chance, on
any reasonable principle of compromise, sooner than
divide or distract the democratic party.
The time is now the only point of difference, and
' Mr. Van Buren's friends suggest, as the latest day,
the month of December, 1843. What do the friends
of Calhoun say to this!
If the friends of Mr. Van Buren, Calhoun, and all
the other democratic candidates agree to unite on
these principles, and to take their several chances,
the contest of 1844 will be one of the most beautilul
ever seen in this country. Mr. Clay will have
hard work before him.
New Police System.?We give in another column,
in the proceedings of the Corporation, a new
scheme for the organization of a City Psltce, emanating
from Justice Taylor. It differs, in some respects,
from the plan heretofore given by Mr. Whiting,
but we suppose an admirable system could be
formed out of the best elements of both the plans.
It is really time that something should be done in
this important matter. There never was a better opportunity
than the present. If the democrats will
not unite with the whigs in agreeing on some
scheme, we trust that the latter will take the re
sponsibility on their own hook. Now is the time for
action.
Prophet Miller and his Millennium.?While
the Fourierites are opening subscriptions, and offering
an interest of 8 r*r cent, by way of beginning
their great industrial millennium, we find that Prophet
Miller is equally busy on his side of the fence,
in preparing for the end of all things In reference
to Mr. Miller's views, we find in a late paper, called
the " Signs of the Times," the following articles
of faith put forth by William Miller, on which perfect
reliance may be placed :?
Svnorsis or Miller's Views.
1. I believe Jesus Christ will come again to this earth.
2. 1 believe he will come in all the glory of hii Father.
1 alto believe he will come in the clouds of heaven.
3. 1 believe he w ill then receive his kingdom, which
will be eternal. ?
4. I believe the saints will then possess the kingdom
forever.
5. 1 believe at Christ's second coming the body of
every departed saint will be raised; like Christ's glorious
body.
And I believe, also, that the righteous who are living
on the earth w hen he comes, will be changed from mortal
1o immortal bodies, and with them who are raised
from the dead, will be caught up to meet the Lord in the
air, and so be forever with the Lord.
0. I believe the saints will then be presented to God
blameless, without spot or wrinkle, in love.
7. I believe when Christ comes the second time, he will
come to finish the controversy of Zion, to deliver his
children Irom all bondage, to conquer their last enemy,
and to deliver them from the power of the tempter, which
is the devil.
8. I believe that when Christ comes he will destroy the
bodies of the living wicked by fire, as those of the old
world were destroyed by water, and shut up their souls
in the pit of wo, until their resurrection unto damnation.
9. I believe, when the each is cleansed by fire, that
Christ and hi* saints will than take possession of the
earth, and dwell therein forever. Then the kingdom will
be given to the saints.
10. 1 believa the time is appointed of God when these
things shall he accomplished.
11. I believe God has revealed the time.
12. I believe many who are professors and preachers
will never believe or know the time until it comes upm
them
IS. I believe the wise, they who are to shine as the
brightness of the firmament, Dan. xii. 8, will understand
the time.
14. I believe the time ran lie known by all who desire
to understand and to be ready for his coming. And I em
fully convinced that tome time between March 2tsf, 1843,
and March 2ltt, 1844, according to the Jewith mode of camputatinn
of time, Chriet will come, and bving all hit tainti
with hi at; and that then he will reward every man a* hit
work shall be.
From this it will appear that Father Miller takes a
whole year of grace on hia calculation of the end of
all things. Also, it seems that fire is to bs the agent
this time?and nor watrr,a> in the time of Noah. No
doubt the warm weather, and the recent earthquakes
indicate something. The best way is to be
ready?and first of all, let every man get ont of
debt.
The Nett-ology.?The new system of philosophy
discovered by Dr. Buchanan, late of Kentucky,
does not, it would peem, prosper in Albany, whither
the Doctor has gone to desseminate it. Some wag
of a student, who had been in the hands of the magnetisere
for a month or two, and out of whose case
they had manufactured a vast deal of capital, has
turned the tables upon them by pronouncing the
whole a humbug, and that he had never experienced
the slightest effect from the operations of the philosophers.
At the close of one of Dr Buchanan's lectures,
the gentleman who had submitted to be "operated
on," and who had been exhibited to a wondering
audience, as sound asleep; as having his
vision impaired or improved; his arm paralyzed or
strengthened; his sensesaffrcted as by intoxication,
at the will of the operator?publicly declared that
neither on those two evenings, nor on other occasions
in this city, at the houses of the prominent
Mepmensts where he had been "operated on" with
apparent magical effect, had he ever been put to
sleep, or ex[>erienced the least impression from their
manipulations or farcical mummeries; and that he
was fully convinced the whole "system," so called,
was gross delusion and humbuggerv; in the expression
of which opinion ihe audience almost unanimously
concurred by general acclamation.
Thf. Pomkrs Case.?A lecture is to be delivered
this evening before the Berean Institute, by Mr.
Wallace, the "Kentucky Poet," on the merits of
the Somerscase, defensive of Captaiu McKenzie
The next thing we will be favored with will be a
popular melo-drama founded on this affair, at the
Olympic or Chatham theatre By the next steamer,
at all events, we will have the opinions of the Euro[M-an
prree, and of the naval men of England and
France. These opinions will be given * ithout
prejudice or partiality, and will be entitled to great
consideration. We believe that the naval history
of France and England furnishes no parallel to this
melancholy transaction.
Debate at the Tabersaci.f..?The debate on
capital punishment was continued at the Tabernacle
last night. Horace Greclv and Dr. Cox were the
combatants, and the price of admission wan only a
shilling a head. This is the age of cheap amusementa,
and the pious young men and maidens who
conscientiously avoid the play house, can now enjoy
each others society at these calm and sanctified dehates,
without fear of experiencing one unholy
throb from the temptations of the enemy.
Reai. Estate for Sai.k ?a peremptory sale ?f
extensive productive real estate property in various
forms, ami calculated to suit purchasers in every
line of business, is to take place this day at noon at
the Merchants' Exchange. This property will be
sold bv J. Rleecker's Son, under the direction of ft
O idwise, Esq., master in Chancery. Perhaps on
no occasion has a more favorable opportunity occurred
lor turning cash to advantage. Persons
anxious to secure property for comparatively trifling
means, are now afforded an excellent'and a rare opportunity
Common School*.?In the last annual report of
the Superintendant of Common Schools, w? are
furnished with many interesting details respecting
these invaluable institutions. The number ot children
who have attended the schools during the year
reported.exclusive of those in the city of New York,
was 571,130?the number in attendance in New
York is reported as 27,f>19?making n total ot 598,749
The average length of time during which the
schools have be;n taught in the several districts was
eight months.
The beneficial effects of the es ablishment of ths
district libraries are spoken of in enthusiastic terms.
Nearly two hundred thousand volumes have been
added during the last year, and the whole number at
present in the libraries is 815 231. Great care is
exercised respecting the exclusion of improperworks,
and very few volumes whose tendency is even equivocal,
have been admitted. Grateful mention is
made in the report to the munificent donation of an
excellent work, entitled "The School and the
Schoolmaster," which has been recently made to
each of the district libraries in the State by James
Wadsworth, Esq., trom the influence of which, in
the dissemination of sound principles and practica]
knowledge on the interesting subject of elementarv
instruction, much good may be confidently anticipated.
There can, indeed, be no doubt that the ays
tern of district libraries has been eminently successful,
and that, in the words of the report, it has contributed
more effieiently to the spread of useful knowledge
than any other step that has ever been taken
by the State in the great cause ot public instruction.
Mr. Young refers with much feeling t* the callousness
manifested in many districts, with respect
to the dilapidated condition of the school-houses
A great number |are represented as being in a most
ruinous state, and quite destitute of proper accommodations
for the pupils. Many of them consist of
a single apartment only, and have no proper buildings
attached to them. " The dilapidated buildings?destitute
of the ordinary con leniencies and
decencies of life?the unhung doors, broken sashes,
absent panes, stilted benches, gaping walls, yawning
roofs, and muddy floors," are described, and
excite the most painful feelings in behalf of the poor
children who are obliged to spend so many hours
in such comfortless and unwholesome huts. The
proper remedy for all those evils is the appointment
of properly qualified deputy-superintendents, men
who have sufficient talent and information to understand
the nature of their duties, and sufficient honesty
to discharge them with fidelity.
There is one topic, adverted to in tfe report, of
great imports nce;and one which cannot be too forci
bly pressed on public attention?that is, the general
establishment of normal schools, and a reasonable
increase in the remuneration of the teachers. With
great truth Mr. Young observes?" That educational
science is far behind all others, is a fact recognized
and conceded by all who are competent to
judge. On any other science a vast amount of skill,
ingenuity and perseverance has been expended to
bring them to their present degree of perfection ;
whilst this, the most important of all, has been confined
to a dull routine, or left to the caprice of accident."
It ia utterly preposterous to expect that a
man can successfully teach others, who is himself
altogether ignorant of the science of teaching. In
order to be qualified for entrance on ,the duties
of other professions, men are obliged to undergo
some sort of preparatory training, but the teacher is
supposed to hiive an intuitive sagacity, skill, and
judgmeat, which enable him to discharge the most
important duties of his office with efficiency and
success. The first great step in the amelioration of
human society, will be the adoption of such means
as will secure a large number of competent and instructed
teachers. Let the profession of the teacher
be thus elevated to its appropriate dignity, let teachers
be made worthy of the name, and let them receive
an adequate compensation, and we will soon
have another state of things. But so long as teachers
are paid the wages of boot blacks and footmen,
and have about the same scientific and literary attainments
as those useful members of society, we
cannot expect that our youth will be particularly distinguished
by a high degree of moral and intellectual
culture.
Court Martial in Philadelphia.?The Court
Martial dh Lieut, Tansil closed last Saturday. The
evidence has made some singular developments relative
to the discipline and conduct of the navy, in
the Florida war. The following is a portion given

Tbk Fikkxkn's Ball, at thk Park, Last Nioirr,
wasoneof the moBt splendid affairs seen in this
city since the B07. Ball. The entire decorations
were of the most gorgeous description, and in the
bestftaste. The stage part of the theatre presented
pre^jaHv the same apiieannce as on the occasion
of the Boz Ball, and the figure of Mr Pickwick on
the curtain which concealed the tableaux, stood out
in as bold relief as ever. Nay, his benevolent countenance
seemed to beam with added complacency,
Hnd did not at all appear out of keeping vith the
appropriate emblems of the joyous scene which
were tastefully arranged around.
The pillars in front of the dress circle were elegantly
festooned with evergreens, and aboye each of
the lower boxes was suspended the certificate of an
exempt fireman. The front of the second tier was
adorned with the banners of various volunteer military
companies, and the banners and other insignia
of the various engine and hose companies were interspersed
all around with great taste. A profusion
of hunting fell in graceful festoons from the dome
to the lower boxes. The house was lighted by a
great number of splendid chandeliers.
The eflectof the whole tout entmNf, when viewed
from the rear of the stage, was grand and impo
aiuq in inr mgneai oegrec. An immense number ot

was just sufficient to fill the house comfortably.
The dresses of many of the ladies were superb,
and all were arrayed with that elegance and

it were invidious to particularise, and we therefore

The whole arrangements reflected the greatest

Sib : Will you do m? the favor to insert the communication

R. H. ATW1L1..
Satuidat, Jan. 99, 1948.
To the Editor oj tht Courier f Enquirer :
Sia?In your paper of yesterday morning, you have
taken occasion to attack me in an unjustifiable manner?
ostensibly in consequence of an article which appeared
in the Herald on Tursnay or weaneaaay 01 im? wo?-*?
charging that the article vu mine, either bi writer or
author, and giving aa a reason lor your conclusions, that
extracts were made and included in it from an "unpub
lishej report" made by me as Chairman of the Committee
on Police, Ac. As your whole article ia based upon this
assumption, I will state that the report was made to the
Board of Assistants soma two or three weeks since, and
being adopted by that Board, became, with all accompanying
papers, a public document, accessible to any one
who may desire to see it; it is on Ale, I presume, where all
such p iners are kept, in the office of one of the Clerks of
the Common Council. I have never had a copy of the re
port, nor have I seen it since it became the property of the
Common Council, nor caused any portion of it to be furnished
to any person whatever. So much for the report.
Whether or not I am " worthy of the place I hold," 1
am entirely willing that " every Whig" who honestly
desires to seethe City Oovernment economically and honestly
administered, should Judge. From motives such as
you sav actuated you in your attack upon the Contract
Committee, I have done in this connection what 1 consi
dered I could not leave undone, without a gross breach of
duly to the public ; aad I am gratified to know that my
h iimble efforts to economize in the right quarters have not
he--n without their indirect influence upon several points.
| With respect to the article in the Herald which you charge
upon me, I know nothing of ita paternity, neither who
wrote it nor who is its author. I suppose it is what it
purportstohe, editorial
Data for the statement! it makes in figures, and much
more .could have been obtained from public dbcumenta on
file, by any person disposed to make the examination.?
If I had undertaken fo furnish matter to a public print
for an attack upon a political friend in this case, I should
probably have made a somewhat stronger case of it, full
as the one in question may appear to be. I in common
with, 1 believe, every, member ol Jhe Common Council,
did suppose that the attack upon the Contracting Committee,
contained in the Courier of last Friday or Saturday,
was caused by the proceedings in the Board of Assistants,
which had for their tendency the diminution of the expense
of the public pi inting for the departments, and a
correction of the abuses that have been practiced under
arrangements like the present. The subject was a common
topic of conversation at the City Hall, after the appearance
of the article ; consequently every person in
and about the Hall,from that time.mnst have known what
the impressions of the members were.
As to the statement that "Mr. Snowden has in some way
oftendel me." it is not true; though it is an argument
which I believe was used to some members of the Board
to prevent them from sustaining the report, and to the
members of the Committee of which I have the honor to
act as Chairman, to prevent them from authenticating it.
1 have never, to my knowledge, met that gentleman, and
do not know him when I see him ; he has never given me
any cense of offence that I am aware of.
In conclusion, permit me to say that, in my opinion,(and
I believe the public will think the same,) you resort to
the same means ot gratifying a personal feeling which you
so often charge upon the paper that you have spoken of
in cvnnecuuu wuu my uhhik, via ; jikibvubi nuu^r , ?uiu
there were no mere troth in the article which you have
atatedto be mine than there it in yours, ?o far aa it concern!)
me, the Editor of that paper would deserve all, and
more than all, the epitheta you have beatowed upon him.
Yours, Ac. R. H. ATWILL.
The above is as capital a dose as ever the " devil
upon two stteks" received.

the U. S. ship Independence from the Navy Yard,
to an anchorage in the North River, yesterday morning.
The Pensacola Gazette states that the U. S. steam
frigate Missouri has received orders to sail for the
North.
Letters from Rio de Janeiro,of the 13th December,
state that the Delaware, Columbia, and Decatur,
were at Montevideo?the latter expected at Rio
daily. The Concord, which sailed from Rio on the
2d July last,for the Eastern coast of Africa, had been
expected for the last month. The John Adams was
also on the coast of Africa, and expected at Rio by
the 1st of February. The schooner Enterprise was
then on a cruise. The harbor was without an American
man-of-war.
The U. 9 sloop-of-war Marion, sailed for the
Spanish Main from St. Thomaa, on the 8th of January.
Theatrical and Musical Concert.?Tlie grand

Saloon. A great array of musical talent is engaged
for the occasion, which promises to be very
brilliant and successful.
Mrs. Sutton and De Begnis are giving Concerts at
Albany with.accustomed success.
The theattes in this city have been crowded,since
the reduction of the prices of admission At the
Chatham they have got up a magnificent pantomime,
entitled ' The Black Raven of the Tombs,"
which was produced so successfully in London, and
had a great run at Niblo's last summer, under the
title, of "Mazulme, the Owl."
The Olympic is doing a fair business. A piece
entitled "The Beauty and the Beast," very slightly
altered from a London piece, has been received
with great approbation.
Welch's Olympic Circus, at the Park, has been
pre-eminently successful. The House has been
crammed every night. Mr. Welch has great tact
and judgment, and has never failed in attracting
public attention to his elegant places of amusement,
and has been equally successful in the more difficult
tank of keeping it up.

Mr. R. is a young gentleman of great promise?
His elocution is easy and forcible, and his address
was full oi a glowing spirit of liberality and patriotism.
CO Welch's Unequalled Company appears at
the Bowery Amphitheatre for the last tune this
evening. They drew a most extraordinary house
last evening; long before the doors were opened,
throngs were collected about the place, and many
were compelled reluctantly to leave, unable to procure
admittance. They return to their old quarters
at the Park to-morrow night, and we anticipate will
be heartily greeted by the crowds of patrons who
have already manifested their delight by unequivocal
tokens. The magnificent pantomime of the
" Devouring Ogre," which has been in preparation
for some time, will be produced to-morrow night,
with all the dramatic, scenic and equestrian effect
which the unlimited facilities of Welch's extensive
establishment enable it to give. For particulars

who have already gained an elevated positjpn
among the most renowned sculptors of the old or new

This indicates in the most cheering manner, the
growing strength of the legitimate drama in the
young empire of the West. Just in this way did
the old play-wrights of Athens dramatise their domestic
tragedies, which, "married 10 immortal
verse," still kindle our passions, and cause our
liearta to thrill with pity, sympathy and awe. "For
particulars see small bills." Why do they not send
us one of those deeply interesting documents 1 Do
let us have one, Mr. Clarke, by the next mail.
The reference made by the editor of the paper in
which the announcement appears (the "Daily Inquirer")
is too good to he lost. Here it is:?
This in Banniftor's night at the National. Banniater ia
a favorite with the Queen City play goers, and aince he
haa joined the Waihingtoniana, he ia decidedly 10 with ua,
not only as an actor, hut aa a man.
The Sotnera and Colt tragediea will both be praaented,
with other pleasiug varieties. Thecasts are good, and we
venture to aay all will be well auatained.
Thisisoneof the most touching notices we have
met with lor along time. The delicacy and epigrammatic
point of the allusion to the little frailties
of the great tragedian, and his first appearance in n
new character, are probably unsurpassed in diurnal
literature. "The Somers and Colt tragedies will
boil1 be presented, with other pleating varieties." It
would appear from this that a slight dash of eccentricity
mingles with the refined dramatic taste of our
modern Athenians. It may be however, that when
we,in this less favored region.reach an equal degree
of refinement, we shall enjoy with equal gofit such
"pleasing varieties" as the Somers and Colt trage
dies We should be much ^ratified, at all events, in
obtaining some insight into the nature of these
"pleasing varieties," and therefore we repeat our
request to be favored with one of the "small bills"
by the respectable stage manager, Mr- NapoleoB
Buonaparte Clarke.

The Last Financier's Tuck.?On Saturday night a
vary respectably dressed man stepped into WoodV collar,
Broadway, a few doora above Scarf's popular and genteel
hotel, and ordered one hundred oyatera to beaenttothe
corner of Green and Bleecker streets, stating at the tame
time, that the boy who took them must besupflied with
change for a three dollar note, as that was the smallest
note the gentlemen at the house had about them. The
oysters were sent according to order , but before the boy
had reached the house he was met by the person who had
bespoke them, who said that the gentleman of the house
had got tired of waiting, and had went to the cellar, and
left the note,with an understanding that he was to receive
the change from the boy. The boy not suspecting any
fraud, gave the fellow the change, amounting ta nearly
two dollars, and on arriving at the house, found that no
oyster* had been ordered, and when he returned to the
cellar, also ascertained that no bill had been left there.
