NEW \ORR HERALD.
Vork, Friday, July 19, U44. Th? Illustrated Weekly Herald. The illustrated Weekly Herald, which we wi!l publish to-morrow morning at 9 o'clock, will con tain a number o! engravings, illustrative of the moil prominent scenes in the Philadelphia riots. One of them will be a representation of the "Head Quarters of the Military," at the GiratdBauk, with the parade of the troops, the sentries on duty, and the crowd of bystanders, talkers, spouters, and others, mixing promiscuously iu the throng. An other will represent the fatal contest at the corner of the streets designated in the description, from which it will appear that the rioters had mounted their cannon on drays, with muffled wheels, and had brought them very quietly to the scene of ac tion, where they were directed against the milita ry, being under the management of sailors and other persons who had been initiated at sea into the use of such deadly instruments, and also anum bei of boys from 16 to 18 years of age. Another of the engravings will represent the church of St. Philip, with the crowd around it, and the groups which were collected in that neighborhood. All of these engravings have been executed from sketches taken on the spot, by an artist who was in the thickest of (he milu throughout the whole period of its continuance. The descriptions accompanying these engravings will consist of the accounts furnished by the pa pers of all parties in Philadelphia, together with the very accurate and impartial reports of our own cor respondent on the spot. This will be by far the best history of these deplorable occurrences yet given. The papers in Philadelphia merely give their own particular report, but we give all, thus presenting the fullest details of the evidence in the case from all quarters. Accompanying this descrip tion will be all the incidents, characteristic and otherwise, of the week. This Weekly Herald will also contain an admira bly executed?faithful likeness of the Mormon ehief, Joe Smith, who was recently massacred in oold blood by the mob, at Carthage, Illinois, ll represents the Prophet in his military uniform, at commander-in-chief of the Nauvoo Legion. This portrait will be accompanied with a full and com pleie account of the arrest ol the Prophet, and all the circumstances connected with his murder. This altogether will be the tnoBt splendid specimen of an illustrated weekly paper ever published in this country. Prospects of the Fall Season for Business. Preparations are already in progress by the mer chants, manufacturers, and traders of this city, for a great and extraordinary inctease of business du ring the approaching autumn. The immense crops of last year, and the prospect of a still greater one this season, give a great stimulus to business opera tions, and will lead to the concentration of a vast amount of the trade of the whole country in the city of New York. During the recent revival of business, Boston hai made great advances in wealth, prosperity and population. But we believe in spite of the advan tages possessed by that city in the way of railroad? and steam-ship lines, that New York isgoing ahead much more rapidly than Boston, or any other cily in the Union, excepting, perhaps. New Orleans. We have heard it stated that a vast portion ol the capital invested in business in Philadelphia, will be *oon transferred to this city. The bad management of the financial aflairsof the Stme of Penna)Ivania, and the want of a good local gu\ ernm-nt in Philadelphia itself, together with the feeling of insecurity created by the late deplorable events there, have been the causes of this contem plated movement on the part of many of the most extensive men of business in that beautiful city. New York is destined, therefore, from a variety of causes?from the misfortunes of oiher citiet? from the partial success even wf attempted rivalry? from the extended lines of internal connection which connect it with all parts of the interior?to advance in commercial greatness and prosperity with a rapidity of which no one can now lorm any adequate conception. We jiee symptoms of th t growing importance every where. And certainly the merchants and traders, and all othets actively engaged in the pursui's of the great commercia emporium, cannot find any other mode of commit nicating with all parts ot the country so efflcteni as the daily and weekly Herald. The Party Press and the Philadelphia R ots ?Yesterday the Courier and Enquirer actu i ly mustered courage enough to say somethir about the Philadelphia riots. But its article c this important subject was as amusing a specime of sneaking cowardice and empty verbosity, as hi ever been mani ested by that print, which is ce tainly giving the article credit for a tolerable infi si on of the characteristic qualities just mentionei It was merely a vague, unmeaning, piece of decli mation about mob violence It did not make tb ?lightest approach to an investigation of the causi of these terrible transactions, and could not post* bly have any moral effect whatever. The party organs of the democratic faction ai ?till quite silent. The Evening P tt and Plebeio are still mum. The Albany Evening Journal equally mute. The truth, as we stated yesterday these mere party organs dare not lake up this su ject as the independent press have taken it u The Courier, in conjunction with the Evenin Journal, was very Instrumental in fomenting tf bad passions of the opposing sects, and fannii them into a blaxe. These prints had a very in portant agency in the Carroll Hall movemrn Hence the ready explanation of their silence not as they cannot condemn the work of their ov hands. Besides, they dare not say a word again the "natives," for the "natives" have many vote And the Irish are equally to be respected for t| same reason. The Evening Pott and other new paper hacks of thai party are in the same predic ment. Bound hand and foot, given over body ai soul to the service of faction, those party press* are utterly incapable of exercising the 6lighte moral influence on the community. How different our course, and that of the ind* pendent journals possessed of fearlessness an honesty! We have examined this question in a its bearings Whenever blame was merited, w have blamed. Whenever we have found any theuctors in these transactions, from beginmn worthy of censure, we huve censured ther Whether Bishop, or priest, or clergyman, or poli cian?Catholic or Protestant?Presbyterian Methodist?Episcopalian or Infidel?" Native" " Irish"?no matter of what name, or party, whe ever we have found an individual who deservi public rebuke, we have Rebuked him. And an v have done in this case, so have we done in othet Hence our influence?hence the moral strength the independent press. The Tti-er Meeting.?What about this great mass meeting 1 Have the clique under Derry At Co. succeeded in their avowed des gn to oblige Delazon Smith, the great out-and-out Tyler orator, all the way from Ohio, to "shut up." SewaTor Tallmadok -Thi gentleman arrived in town last evening and puis up at Howard's. We learn that he will stop but a short lime here nod at Poughkeepsie, previous to proceeding to the tar west to assume the gubernatorial charge Ecclesiastical Ttranny?Bishop Huohis is his own Church.?We publish oil our firs! page a very interesting document, which sheds a flood 01 I'ght upon the principles find policy adopted b) Bishop Hughes in the exercise of his episcopa I authority. The circumstances and controversj connected wiih the attempt of this prelate towresi , from the legally appointed trustees of church pro. ' i perty, the privileges conferred upon them by out i constitutional laws, must be still fresh in the recol lection of many of our readers. It excited a greai deal of public attention at the time, and the feeling of indignation at the conduct of the Bishop was very loudly and generally express ed. Indeed, he felt this pretty keenly, and shortly before his departure for Europe last Spring, Bishop Hughes had actually the mo desty to send two of his priests to us with a long and elaborate defence of his conduct, in endea voring to deprive the trustees of the church of St. Louis of their guardian.-hip of the property, which h id beeu entrusted to their management according to the laws of this Republic. This deleuce, we need hardly say, was quibtiling and insufficient, and as we satisfactorily demonstrated at the tim did not in the slightest degree tend to relieve the Bishop from the stigma which his unjust and unpo pular conduct had fastened upon hira. The petition to his Holiness at Rome, which we republish, presents the grievances of the Catholics ol Buff do in a very forcible light. This case is, indeed, one of peculiar hardship. The tyranny and injustice manifested by this Catholic prelate towards a portion of the people over whom he haB been appointed to exercise authority, are to be compared only to the oppressive and domineering conduct of the hierarchy in the darkest days ol priestly despotism. Besides discovering the remarkable indiscretion and perverted judgment of Bishop Hughes in the administration of his episcopal office, this case at fords striking and instructive indications of the progress in this country of the same policy on the part ol the Catholic clergy, which we see attempt ed in France. There the very same effort has been made by the priesthood to obtain the control and possession of the temporalities of the church, under the pretence of providing for the education of the people, which the government has wisely taken out of the hands of the clergy and entrusted to the University. In Spain also, the same ques tion has mingled largely in the civil war which has desolated that anhappy country. The Carlists are in favor of a restoration of the old dominion ol the hierachy, whilst the liberal party oppose such a measure, as hostile to the liberties and welfare of the people. The truth is, that throughout th< bounds of the Catholic church, there has of late grown up amongst the people, a strong and well grounded dislike and dread of giving political power or the temporalities of the church into the hands of the priesthood. In other countries the people ol the Catholic faith are guarding against the opprei sion and tyranny of the clergy, by securing for the church temporalities the protection of the State. In this country, the sovereign power is possessed by the people ; and the trustess legally appointed to the guardianship of church property, are the re presentatives of the only sovereignty which here exists, it is out of the hands then of the State that Bishop Hughes seeks to wrest the temporali ties of his church, nnd it is certainly highly grati fying to find that this unjustifiable and tyrannical procedure meets from his own flock, that energetic opposition which it demands. Such is the position which Bishop Hughes at present occupies with respect to his own people. This is not a question between him and the " most dangerous man in the community," James Gordon Bennett. This is not a question between the Bishop and that bigotted superintendant of public schools ?Colonel Stone. But it is a question between the free citizens of this State and the legate of a foreign ecclesiastical potentate. It is a question between the vested rights of the Trustees and the arrogant pretensions of a Catholic prelate. And it is a question which presents, only in another phase, the same indiscreet, arrogant, and unjustifiable po licy which called together the meeting in Carroll Hall, and attempted to organize a politico-religious influence, under the frivolous pretence of opposi-1 tion to a translation of the Bible, alleged to be wicked and dangerous, than which, a more silly pretext for introducing civil discord was never seized by any disturber of the peace, lay or cleri cal. We sympathise very sincerely with the people o' Buffalo. We think it very hard that they are obliged to seek deliverance from the tyranny ol their bishops only through the venerable old gentle man who occupies the pontifical throne et Rome However, we shall render them all the aid in our power. We shall transmit, by the next steamer to Europe, a copy of this journal to the American Consul at Rome, with a request that he may, with out delay, lay it before his Holiness. And we humbly call upon the Society of the Propaganda to depose Bishop Hughes, and instal in the office for which he is so manifestly unfit, the very Rev. Dr. Powers, who, in sagacity, experience, talent, piety, erudition, and everything, lssoimmeasura tdy superior to the present Catholic Bishop of the important diocese of New York. j The Reform Pahty in th* Corporation.?It if j gratifying to find that there is a sprinkling of honor I and fidelity 10 solemn obligations in the new Cor poration. Alderman Cozzene, who fulfils his pro mises, public or private, disgusted with the infi delity of his associates, has resigned. His resig nation, however, was not accepted, which explains its non publication in the records of the Common Council. But the probability is that he will per sist in it. We perceive that the new party have had a meet ing in the Third Ward, and discovered at it that tney leel that the Corporation are jast playing the old game, neglecting their duty entirely, and do ing nothing without Borne sinister and selfish mo tives. At this meeting one particularly good reso lution was adopted, namely :? Whereas, It is notorious thai females sf an abandoned character arc nightly thror. 'ing our most public tho roughfare, Broadway, and iliat part more particularly | comprised in the Third Waul ; and Whereas, The same is one ol the greatest nuisancer J that exists in this community, whereby respectable le males are insulted by obscene, vulgar, and gro sly pro fane language during their promenades through this street I ?therefore Resolved, That it is the sense ol this meeting that the same can and may be abated by the action of hit honor the Mayor as head of the police-and that a committee be appointed to wait on him tor the purpose of requesting his immediate action in tbia matter. In the Seventh Ward there appears to be symp mms of considerable disturbance. In fact there J can be no unity in a party that is dishonest. This I party went into office under solemn pledges to ' give us reform, and they show no disposition to re 1 deem these pledgea;~but on the contrary, are busy at the old scrambling game ot the old parties, in ' stead of attending to their duty. We do verily be I lieve that we shall have to go back to one of the old parties after hII. Fourth of July in Canada ?We give in another column a highly interesting article from a Kingston ptiper, giving an account of the celebra tion ol the glorious "Fourth" by a large number of Canadians This is, indeed, tolerably significant. We shall next hear ol the annexation of Canada Compliment to an American Consul.?G. W. Milliard, Esq., Charge de Afiaires from the United Stales at Brussels, was recently invited and elected a member of the Royal Society of Northern Anti quaries in Copenhagen. Bare, the Pirate.?A futther respite'of the case of Babe, the Pirate, under sentence of death, was yesterday morning received by the U. States Mar shal, staying the execution until the first Monday of June, 1846. This will leave his fate in the hands of a new President. (fcjh Gen. Worth has arrived in town. He stops the American Tvuw Movmients and Doinos ?There were in dications some days ago of a Tyler meeting to be held in thm city. A certain man, bent on immor tality, by the name of Smith, either John Smith or some of his relatives, was to be the orator of the occasion. The meeting has been postponed to ' some future day, and perhaps altogether Now.it this meeting ever cornea ofl, we shall not only be prepared to report it, but we shall also 1 be prepared to expose and develope some of the most curious, rich, racy and astounding tacts that have ever been luid before a fun-admiring public. In the course of these developments we shall tell who it was that brow-beat and forced the Baltimore Tyler Convention to the reek lass and premature nomination of John Tyler?who opposed that hasty nomination, and advised to await the action of the iegu ar Democratic Convention, then simultaneous y silting?who being whigs, acled under whig in Huence, and whut were their immediate motives, and their ultimate designs?who threw dust in President Tyler's eyes, an J what that who forced the President to accept the ill-advised nomination, and with what pretences and argu ments?who did all the thinking, and who did all the talking, and who paid all the expenses. We shall also tell who it is that 'settled Mr. Tyler's policy" lor him then, and who now persists in driving him and lus in jnda reck lessly upon rocks and quicksands, and who de nounce all that dare to form an independent opin ion?who they were that atarted the movement in this city for another Tyler mecting-who wanted to make that a "ratification meeting," as they cai led it, to ratify the nomination of John Tyler, ant who opposed any meeting for such an object?w are compelling John Tyler to assume a threatening attitude towards the Polk and Dallas party w o lay down conditions of a union, and what those conditions are?who it is that have created a divi sion in the Tyler party, and what their object was in creating it?who controlled the Aurora up to last Saturday, who now control it, and why it ha changed hands-who now own it, who is to edit it, and on what principles-what political clique* since last Monday have dined together in thn ^ city, wined together, and drank brandy smasher , together? until three o'clock in the morning? who they are that believe that Henry Clay can be more easily and certainly elected if Tyler, by run ning an independent ticket, shall withdraw as many I votes as possible from the Polk and Dallas party? who now wish to control the Custom House pa tronage, and dictate terms and line of conduct to I the present able Collector-and how egregiously they are mistaken who think to impose upon him who ihey are, and all their management, who hope, under pretence of doing justice to John Tyler, to defeat Polk and Dallas, and elect Henry Clay, am) be retained in office as a reward for their chicanery and tre chery. All these developments, and many more to which we already have the key, to unlock at our leisure we shall be prepared to make when the aforesaid meeting comes off Everything is in pickle. "Where's John Smith 1 The Mormon Massacre.?Accounts confirms tory of the fact that Joe Smith and his brother were actually massacred?murdered in cold blood, con tinue to reach us from the West. There can be no doubt that political leeling entered largely into the popular excitement in that region against the Mormons. It was feared by the Whigs that the Nativoo people would give material aid to Polk This affords another and most melancholy illustra tion of the pernicious, demoralizing, brutalizm influence of the party presses, which are daily in flaming the passions of the people by the vilest an. most incendiary tirades against their respective op ^Besides, Nauvoo was very favorably situated and from its natural advantages combined with those created by the Prophet, under his singul government, was very rapidly increasing in popula tion and trade, whieh excited the jealousy and en vy of the people of Warsaw, a busimss place a lit tle below Nauvoo. The people of Carthage, also, another trading village or town in the interior, were stimulated by the same feelings to oppose the Mormons. These feelings of enmity arising from ' accursed envy and avarice, were constantly inflam ed by a blackguard paper in Warsaw called the 1 Signal." The conduct of the people of Illinois and Missou ri towards the Mormons has been brutal and detes table in the extreme, and discovering the same spi rit thai burned the witches at Salem and the Con vent at Boston. The Giant and Giantess, lately at the Ameri can Museum, but now in Eldkidgk st. Prison ? Yesterday the following was very modestly handet! to us, by the person who recently had the manage ment of the New York or Peale's Museum, in con nection with this disgraceful affair. We have received a verr different account from the which we gave in Tuesday ?? Herald relative to the arret of the Giant at the American Museum. It appean he wa under a contract ot engagement for a period of eight month*, and having received the greater part of hi* salarj in advance, he now wishe* to violate hit) agreement, am had made arrangements to exhibit himself eUewherr The manager had but one courae to pursue to prevent it namely?i-suing an injunction The case it now under going legal investigation, and we have no doubt justic will be done to both pa parties." " This might do, were it but true," But, unfortunately for the writer of the foregoing, it is not so ; for instead of the Oiant receiving l.n salary for eight months in advance, there will hi due to him on Saturday next one week's salary ten dollars and five cents. Lie No. 2 is, that h< had no desire to violate his contract; and it wa the writer himself of the above very veracious par agraph that recommended and made arrangeme nts with the proprietor of the Albany Museum for Mr and Mrs. Randall to exhibit there ; not only so. but wrote to the same gentleman on Saturday lasi, requesting him to postpone the appearance ot thes Earties until the Tuesday, as they were going t( ave a benefit here on the Monday? benefit o being incarcerated in a jail. The letter w? have seen, and it is now in the hands of Mr Randall's legal adviser. The latter part of th> above precious document is the only part we agre> , with andf believe in. "The case is now under | going legal invesiigation, and we have no doulu I justice will be done to br th parties," by mulcting: I Mr. Barnum, the proprietor ot these Museums, it : the shape of damages for breach of contract am ; false, imprisonment to the tune of several thousanc I dollars, for we feel a-sured that no jury, when si the facts of the case are made known to them i would decide the matter otherwise. Action. I for breach of contract and false imprisonment hav< been commenced against Mr. Barnum and h t two worthies, togetherand separately, by Mr. Ran dall. We much mistake the former if lie will noi know what to do with the two latter partiesHyhen ' he hears of the matter. Mr. and Mrs. Kandall appear pretty conteii, all things considered, in their present lodgir_ they say they have belter accommodation, and'Are treated with more courtesy than ever they expe ? rienced Ht the American Museum. We were glad to hear this case has excited some interest with the 1 public; several ladies and gentlemen have called ] upon them at the prison, end afforded substantial , evidence of the interest they take in the matter. Three legal gentlemen of high standing at the New i York Bar, have kindly come forward and Offered their services gratuitously to Mr. Randall. Thm aynen gings: we hope it ever will be found that injustice and oppression, particularly towards a stranger, yill b< met by bold, ene geiic, and able opponents. It is not true, as stated in the Sun of yesterday, and the writer of the paragraph knew the fact when he penned it, that Mr Randall lay in prison for the want of bail. Several highly respectabb and influential parties have oflerrd to become bail for him to any amount, but Mr. Randall preferred remaining, and abiding the legal deciaion. The case, as regards the injunction, comes on fot hear ing before the Vi<-? Chancellor on Monday next. Tkeatrleati, Ate. Ole Bull was advertised to give a concert a* Montreal on the 9th inst. under the immediate pa tronage of ihe Governor General, and assisted b) the band of the 89th regiment. Rockwell and Stone's Equestrian Company are announced to perform at Bangor, Maine, on Mon day next. Mrs. Barrett and Fanny Jones are drawing ful houses at the Providenoe Theatre.? IMPORTANT fROM AFRICA?AOORXSSION OF THE British?'The brig Robert, Captain Cook, arrived yesterday afternoon from the west coast of Africa, with advices to the 10th ult. We learn fromCapt. Cook that the English con tinue to interfere with the American trade. The British steamer " Albert" declared war against the natives of the river Nunes and blockaded that stream irom the 24th January to the 12th February, allowing neither vessels nor boats of any flag to pass up. On the7th February the supercargo of the Robert went on board the steamer to ascertain about the blockade. The person in charge, an acting Lieut, in command, Baid that he had thought proper to blockade the river and forbid the supercargo of the Robert from trading with the natives. The said commander ascertained there were two men belonging to the Robert which were British subjects?he therefore demanded them and was re fused. He said he would take them by force. One of the men being in the bout with the supercargo at the time was detained on board the steamer, with an order to send the other man immediately or he should board the Robert, haul down the flag and take him by force. To prevent any trouble the man was sent on board the steamer The two men were shipped on board the Robert in this city as seamen. The Elizabeth, of Salem, was blockaded in the river from the 24th January to the 12th February. The Robert and Oriental were detained two weeks and then were obliged to leave the river on account of the war against the natives and the blockade which had materially injured the voyages of five American vessels which trade to that river. The British brig of war "Ferrit," at the leeward flred into two American vessels on the coast. Capt J. was seven months on the coast trading from Gambia to the Rio Ponzas. He saw only one man of war, the Porpoise. She came to the Gambia in January, stopped eighteen hours,then proceeded to leeward. She passed the Nunas at the time of the war, but without stopping. The American merchant vessels suffer more from the insults of the British squadron than by the na tives on the coast. Trade was dull. American goods were plenty and very low, while African produce was scarce and high. We hope that when this news reaches Washing ton, our government will immediately send orders to Commodore Perry of the American squadron on the coast of Africa, to either protect our commerce or come home. Further Movements of the Boston Light In fantry.?Our military visiters paraded yesterday morning in the Park, as well as they could forth? crowd, whose anxiety to see a specimen of theii efficient discipline, must have proved somewhat in convenient. Would that they (the said crowd) had been ducked in the fountain to cool theii ardor, for there was no such thing as getting a glimpse at the rear rank, except very rarely, nor at the front one without the utmost effrontery.? Whether it was that the "spirit of the fountain" was chagrined, like ourselves, at the view being intercepted, or that she is too fastidious to tolerate the presence of so many of "the great unwashed," doth not appear, but in reality the crystal waters, bounding in mid air, underwent a transformation, and assumed an opaque and sulky hue, almost a disagreeable as a fit of sulkmess The famom Boston Brigade Band, however, struck up "Behold how brightly breaks the morning," and relieved u. of the temporary eontretempt. By previous appointment,that beautiful company the "New York Light Guard," joined their friend at the "Astor House," whence they started to gether for Newark, N. J., on a complimentary visit to the "Union Blues" of that town. A con siderable number of citizens went out with them, and a pretty considerable number joined them on the way. But there's limits to every thing, as tin fellow said when he smoked^hiscigar below watei mark. The cars could hold no more. In fac there was bitter weeping on the part of many thai they could notgeton to Newark ; and a pretty fait speculation arose out of the tranfer of "sitting and standings," some claiming to pocket the pre mium, others resigning, content to jog on, on foot, 'receiving the difference." astheysay in the army. There was a mighty gathering at Newark. It appears that the fame of the Tigers had preceded them. A military mania seemed to have got hold upon young and old. There you might see a bras. cannon.manned with juvenile bombardiers,slapping away at " airy nothing ;" there you could observt precocious engineers to the elbows in defiles ol sand and clay counterscarps, whilst vollies ol cha sers, spitting-devils and buckskin combustible), made the welkin ring. The " Union Blues" wen* under arms waiting their friends. They wen about fifty-six muskets strong, and certainly madi a handsome appearance?every way worthy of tin two crack companies, who were their visiters.? They were commanded hv Capt. Carter, and wen accompanied by a good band of music. The Bos 'on Light Infantry, and New York Light Guard, formed four deep, marched past the position of thi Blues, passing respectively the grand salute serun dim artem ; this ceremony was returned on tin pan of the " Blues." The three companies then marched through some of the principal streets, attended by a vast crowd of young and old, halted at Stewart's Hotel, partook of some re freshment, passing half an hour very pleasantly, until "the spirit-stirring drum and ear-piercing file' summoned them to "recover arms" and "fail in.' The word "quick, march," was given, and h> quickly obeyed, which the reader, knowing theii high discipline, will readily understand, ana so wt leave them on their march to the Park, for an in slant, and take a peep into Stewart's Hotel, feeling \ little desirous to emulate our military friends it that interesting part of their duty, the "knife anc fork exercise." It is not necessary to detai any of the proceedings within; it may not be out of the way to observe, however, that ra tions of fall kinds had'beconie very scarce; edi bles had disappeared in amazing masses; there were scouts on the move in search of relish pb?orderlies sent out to reconnoitre ordin urt?*?sergeants for Sandwiches?and any price offered by scientific citizens tor specimens belong ing to either the animal or vegetable kingdoms How it terminated remains in doubt. They liquoret and rejoined the fotces on parade. The evening was beautiful ; the enclosure thronged with spectators; a vast number of persons from the adjacent country came te see the review, on horseback and in vehicles of all descriptions It passed over, or at least appeared to pass over, verv quietly. The marching, in slow, quick anc double-quick time, perfect. The variety ol uniform along the line of the three compnnies liar a gay appearance, there being no less than six dif ferent costumes including ihose of the bands. On breakingup, they took another marcli through the town, by a different route?exchanged contra illations wuh their f riends the "Blues"?and, after passing some time pleasantly, returned bvthe7i ?'clock cars tor New York, where they arrived ai o'clock, and forthwith proceeded to Niblo't Garden to witness the performance of the grand military ballet "The Hevolt of the Harem." The mention of Niblo's and the exquisite music to he there enioyed, puts us in recollection of ihat unsurpassed corps de musique?" The Boston bri gade Band," which now accompanies the "Tigers " In mentioning their name lately we inadvertently styled them by another name; and although name are not things?and often of trivial import, yet, -when what they designate is worthy of notice it i? veil to be collect in terms it was asource of de light tous to listen to the Brigade Band, either at he head of the Boston Light Infantry, or in the \stor House, where they cast a speil of harmony over the revelriea of the festive board, and conse crated to Apodo an occasional interval and aspira lion, that might have honored almost the dominion! of Bacchus. We have had the opportunity of see ing some of the finest bands attached to Europeat military corps, and our experience leads us to be lieve that on comparison with any of them the "Boston Brigade Band" would be no loser. Captain Knight, the leader,and his musical friends, are well deserving of the praise due to unusual taste and clever execution. The Boston Light Infantry propose stopping in this eity to-morrow and next day. On Sunday they attend divine service, and start on their return home on Monday. When they go they will carry back with them the beat regards of all who have known or seen them, and an assurance that theii visit, if prolonged, would be for that not the lest relished by their friends here. Tnrp to Lono Branch.?The fine steamer Orus, Captain Price, makes a trip to Long Branch ant the Ocean House next Sunday. She will leavt this city at six o'clock in tho morning. Qrniral Vciilom. Beioro Recorder TaUmadp- and Alderman Emmans and Drake. Matthew C. Peterson, Esq. Diltrict Attorney. Jri.v II.? Case of Jilexandtr Hoag?In the motion, beiore tue Court on the pirn ot Counsel for <le ence for delay in thia trial, owing to an alb-gad illegal return of proceeding! held before the Supreme Court on bill of exceptioni, the Court gave ai their opinion, that the plea was "deemed frivoloui," as the return had been made in accordance with usage and cuitom. The case wae then net down lor trial on the first day of the August terra. The Grand furycamu into t.ourt with a presentment relative to the "straw hail" system, and evila arising from pawn brokers'shops, which they presented as among the most odious of the nuisances existing in the city. The presentment was received anil the Jury discharged lor the term. ' Grand Ixtrceny.?Bernard Garaban and James Collins, natives of Ireland, were tried on a charge of grand larceny, for stealing a $1000 note of the Merchants' Bank and three or $800 from a belt round the body ol John Garvey, of To ronto, Canada, on the 28th of June last. The complain ant testified that he met the accused in compuuv with two other men at Murphy's grocery store, in Washington street, in the early part of the before warned evening ?he drank w ith them several times, and then went to his lodg ings at another pait of the city, and on waking up during the night felt of bis belt, and found that his money was missing. David L. Used, broker, of 3 Bowery, stated tna. Uaralian came to his office on the morning of the of J"'y. with the $1000 note of the Merchants' Bank, which he wished changed for British gold. Witness took the note to the Merchant*' Bank, when be was told that an old man had been robbed of a similar note a day or two betiW'^nil he had better arrest the person who ottered it ; witness was absent nearly two hours and a half, and when he returned the accused was still waiting lor him and he was then arrested. John Douihrrty oi 3ft Washington street, stated that Collin* came to his place with a $6*'0 note and asked for a counterfeit detector, which he obtained, and afterwards ascertained, by application to a broker that the note was good; while there officer McOratb came in snd i.rrested Collins, who denied that he had any money Officer McGhath stated that from a description ol the accused, as given by complainant, he arrested Col lins, who aiterwuids told him that he had left the $600 note with Dougherty, where it was obtained. This wit ness also stated thai a schoolmaster named Sullivan, who was in company with these men at the grocery when the money is supposed to have been taken, was also suspect ed by witness ol obtaining the other two $600 notes, but he escaped, as the son of the complainant told witness that he did not believe he knew any thing about it. The complainant on being recalled, stated that he had known Sullivan for several days before, but had never seen eith er of the accused before the night in question. The accused was defended by W. Shales, Esq .who as sumcd the positiou that the complainant lost the money from his belt at Mur phy'a grocery store while in a state of intoxication, and that Collins found it and divided it among the party, by which meaus Oarahangotthe $1 000 uote, Collins one $600 note, and Sutlivan, who escaped, the two other $600 notes, and contended that the evidence sustained this position. The RscoaDsa charged that if the money had beer, found hy the accused, and they had reason to believe that it belonged to the complainant, they were guilty of th* offence, and also, if they took no means to ascertain who was the legal owner. The jury, after a short absenca, returned a verdict of not guilty, and they were discharged. The $1 60O wat given to the complainant by the assent of Mr. Bhaler and the Court.

Brown was trie<l sn a charge of stealing thirteen lotter) tickets, purporting to be of the " Pokomoke Lottery, drawn in Delaware," from the exchange office of Mr Hyde in Greenwich street. Geo. H. Brown, a clerk of Hyde, testified that accused came into the office, and, after enquiring for tickets, snatched the package from the counter and escaped. The trial was progressing, when it was ascertained thst the indictment described the tickets as of the" Delawan Lottery," when in truth they were of " The Pokomoke Lottery, drawn in Delaware " Thia wa* fatal to the in dictment, and the jury returned a verdict of not guilty. The District Attorney moved that the accused lie re manded until a new indictment could he prepared at tht next term of the Court, to which the Court assented, and the accused was sent back to prison. Rnhbery an the Points?A young man named James McCredy was tried on a charge of grand larceny, for enticing a man nnmed|Dupont Oaresche into the"premise* of Amanda McLean, iu Anthony, near Little Water street while he was in a state of partial intoxication, and rob bing him of his coat, vest, hat, handkerchief, and a small amount of money, while lie was asleep on the premises The faet was clearly proved, hut the jury considered the property as below the value of $28. and returned a vet. diet of petit larceny only. The Court then sentenced prisoner to the Penitentiary for six months. Business Concluded.?District .Attorney Patekson ther stated to the Court that his business lor the term ha > heen brought to a close?that every ponton confined in th< City prison had been tried who desired trial, and that therefore there was nothing iurther beiore the Court lor the present term The Recorder then proceeded to discharge thspeti' lurors in attendance, but said that ne conceived it hi duty to express the extreme satisfaction evinced by tk< Court in the lacility with which the District Attomet had despatched the public business?that while hp ha-' tenaciously adhered to the interests of the people that hi represented, yet he had intermingled wito hit official duties such striking evidences of humanity and juttici towards all who had heen arraigned, that this mention ol it mu?t receive a hearty response from all whose buaines on duties bad called them in attendance before the Court This was due to the District Attorney, as he had hut re cently taken upon himself the responsible duties of ar office. That was as arduous as it was difficult to satisfy the people, as well as the accused, in the advocacy of jus tice. The petit Jurors were then discharged with the thank* of the court. Sentences.?John Edward Robinson, the colored bo) who was convicted of manslaughter in the fourth de gree, for causing the death of Patrick Daley, formerly n waiter at Windust's relrectory, in Park Row, hy striking him upon the head with thn bar of a door, was arrairned for sentence The Recorder stated that Irom the testimo ny on the trial, he was found to he the assailed, from th" commencement of the affray, but still the use of such a weapon of defence was not to be considered as justifia hie. The circumstances attending the case had been well considered hy the court, and strong testimonials ol the previous good character of the pri oner had been pre tented helore them. With tliia view they had concluded o impose asrntanre of imprisonment intheCity Prison lor one month only, and a fine of $10. Edward Priestly, convicted of an attempted rape upon aia own daughter, was next arraigned, but sentence wa* suspended, in order to allow him to introduce affidavit* showing the alleged falsity ol the testimony against him. whieh it is suspected was manufactured by some por tian of hi* family. George Thompson. convicted of grand larceny, for nt tempting to pick the pocket o' Mr. Monroe, in Wall atreet, wa* sentenced to the State prison for two y* ar* and three months The Recorder remarked, in passiac 'hi* sentence, that it would have been extended to th* full length ot the penalty of the law?two years and six months?were it not thai the statute compelled the cour1 to impose the sentence so a* to allow the prisoner to he discharged between the months of March snd November Henry S. Schaffer, who had entered a plea of guilty tc an indictment for obtaining goods under false pretences was next a*ked if he had anything to say why judgment should not be imposed upon him, to which question In answered nothing The Recorder then remarked that the Court had reason to believe, from numerous affidavit that had been presented before them, that tiie accused was one of the leaders of a gang of swindlers that had long infested this city, whose operation* haj defrauded 'housands, and whose punishment deserved the utmo*< -everity. That such punishment would hsve heen in flicted upon the prisoner, and Htafe prison laher heen hi* entenee. had not several affidavits been presented to the Court in his favor, bv person* formerly of his acquain 'nnce. The Court had therefore assented to a sontence *f hut six month* confinement in the penitentiary, which 'hey hoped would serve ss a caution for his future con iuct after the term of punishment had expired, and ?I?o a* a warning to those of his associates who are now pin suing the rxme unlawful operation* throughout the city John Dentse, a smart snd pretty boy, about 18 year* of age, was next arraigned for sentence on a conviction for burglary in the second degree, for entering the ttnin habited dwelling of christian F.

But when a mob is once raised and excited, it knows no hound*, no moderation, but reaaon and law are both disregarded. We have often expressed the belief that mobs and Lynch law are improper under all circumstances, and should not be justified, excused or tolerated under any circumstances, and every outbreak confirms the correctness of this opinion. Joe Smith was, no doubt, deeply steeped in crime; but when he was under arrest, with public sentiment strongly setting against him, therejwas the most ample oppor tunity to convict and punish liirn legally and severely. And in the St. Louis Democrat we find the fol lowing :? From all the fact* now before us,we regard these homicides as nothing less than murder in cold blood?murder against the plighted laith of the chief magistrate of Illinois?murder of a charac '!!' "? air.oc'oua af"f 80 ""justifiable, as to leave the blackest stain on all its perpetrators?their aiders, abettors, and defenders. Here was Joe Smith in the custody of the lawa to which he had surrendered himself, in the confi dence that those laws woujd not be broken to hi* injury. _ He had the promise of preservation and protection ugainst the very mob violence to which he has fallen a victim. Ought not such faiih to have been kept! Need we ask, indeed, whether, even it there had been no special promise, the law does not always hold out implied safely to its pri soners from all punishments, save what itself impo ses. Indeed, the sight of such solemn pledges, so shamefully broken, is truly sickening. Why, an Arab, it you accept his hospitality, and eat of his salt?an American Indian, if you once pass hi* threshold in peace, will give up his existence before he will suffer his pledges to be broken. If such acts are to be taken as a true expression of the spirit which pervade* the public mind of our communities, it needs no seer to te'l us that our course as a people is downward. It is a spirit, which seeks its gratification only in the indulgence of the most ignorant prejudices and the vilest pas sions. Nothing can stand against it, except the bayonets of a despot, and it is the very spirit which, after a series of anarchies, naturally produce* des pot* and their bayonet*. We think Smith was a despicable imnoster, and tnat tne dupes of a deceit so gross as his is must necessarily be most ignorant and debased. Hence we have always thought that the laivs of the land were strong enough to control both him and them. Oregon Expedition.?The Western Expositor contains a letter from Major Adams, written from Battle reek, above Kansas, and dated June 9th, in which he states that they had had almost continued ruins in that quarter, which had rendered their progre9s slow.
