The steamship Acadia, Capt. Stone, is fully

with one week's later news. It is looked for with
some interest, but not with the anxiety that has
all along marked the expectation of news from
the other bide of the Atlantic.

American soil, as unruly weeds and ihe wild grape
are ?< metimes found growing cosily together on
the American hill sides. We give in our columns
to-day, an amusing article from the Loudon Timet*
of this character. The wit, the sarcasm, the gen"
tie pnnch in the ribe, and terrible mauling over the
shoulders, which they give the American republic
in consequence of the loud professions of liberty
which resound here, in connection with a large
lice of black slavery, give us a great deal of un*
easiness; but yet they do nol ej>oil our apatite for
a beef steak at the tail of a keen, cold day in November.
We are happy, on the contrary, that we
can afford matter for so much life and gaiety in th?
eaden columns and magniloquent paragraphs o'
our amiable cotemiorary in Printing House Square.
Vet we cannot help mingling the tear with the
smile, when he puts into us so strongly in consequence
of the existence of slavery in certain parts
of our country, and places in juxtaposition with
that our ardent professions of liberty. We confess
it?with sorrow, we confess that our instituticns
have not yet reached that perfection which
we hope they will do with the progress of time
and age. Hut have we not done something since
the days of our youth 1?if these writers will insist
upon contrasting the institutions of every State in
our infant republic with the venerable Ilritmh ?m.
pi re and its hoary institutions, going back into the <
* orni-eaten ages of antiquity. Since the declara- j
lion of independence, all the Northern States have |
abolished slavery, and but for the agitation and
n-crimination coining from the enthusiasts of Kng- j
land, it is very likely that a similar result would |
have been the case in Virginia, Maryland, Kentucky,
and other States, long before this day. Let
our cotemporary put that in his pipe and smoke it.
But this is not all. Instead of talking to us ot
the beam in our eye, and the mote incur brother's,
why does not the London Timet treat of the condition
of Ireland, and endeavor to ascertain
whether the white slavery established in that unhappy
land, on general principles?the "envy
and admiration of surrounding uati<>ns"-does not j
present a Jar more revolting picture in reference to '
restrictions on civil and social liberty, comfort, '
and morality, than that of the black slaves of the <
J^outherr States, where they live in clover, "year j
in and year out," and where the scars and the lash, [
and ihe servile misery and degradation, cannot lor j
a moment be compared with tnat of Ireland, or any
of the British dependencies 1
Is he aware that the "sister" country, with j
boundless natural resources, and an intelligent and
industrious population, has been in connection
with the time-worn constitution of Uogland for
nearly se\en hundred years, and that her people
are the worst clad, the word fed, the worst housed, <
throughout God's creation 1 Talk of slaves! t
I'ahaw How many thousands of that unfortunat* |
p. oj'le, during ihe fanuna of the last three years,
and during many a previous one, would have been
glad to have had the fare and the treatment of our
Southern slaves! Oh, but they had civil liberty !
No, they had no such thing. From the days of
Henry the Second, up lo Victoria the Firat, their
history has been a continued series of confiscations,
coercion bills, and martial law.
How long ia it ago, since the priest and the
X'hoolmaster had a pric? put i?j<on their heads'
How long is it since the more galling portion of
the penal laws was erased from the statute book!
Th?*re are men alive, who, from their own jiersonai
knowledge, could give an answer lo the firat question,
and twice ten summer* have not rolled over
our heads since the conception of religion* treeCom
to the Catholic* of Ireland. Liberty, indeed!
Yes, the li!>erly of dying behind thvir ditches by
periodical atarvation?the consequence of the long
nnagoveinment to which they have been subjected
under the Kritish crown. Liberty, indeed! where
the commonest right* of freemen are, at this moment,
vk luted, the habeat rnrytut acts sue," nded,
liberty of speech made a felony, the independent
pre** gagged, imblic meetings forcibly suppressed,
and more arbitrary and tyrannical proceedings
than ever Nicholas of I! lusia resortad to, openly
abd uLblushingiy carried on, in the face of tlie
civilized Aoild, under tli sanction of government
and the form* of law ' Vet, notwithstanding
these outragea <?u the < ivilizaUou and the humanity
of the age, a parfuwui writer of (he governmeat
which practises them, darea to taant ua with having
a be run in our eyea, and to "extract amusement,"
to use hia own phrase, from the discrepancy,
the little mote in hia own eye enable* him
to see between the glorious and happy institutions
iourdrd by ourselves and the heir-loom of slavery
wluch his country baa left us as a memento.
Ireland, however, is not the only country which
j we might recommend to the attention ot our liberty
Io\ing cotemporary. Why doe# he not look to
the eighty millions ot half and halt black slaves in
I the Indian territories ot the British empire, from
whose toils, and privations, and wretchedness, the
' British aristocracy annually extract twenty mili
hots of pound* Merhng, equal to one hundred millions
of dollars of our money, and to the whole
[ cost of the Mexican war, which has redounded
so much to the honor, the fame, and the glory, of
our country. It will be quite time enough for British
journalists and British philanthropists to talk
to us ot our institution of slavery in the South,
f when they can present a white race under their
sway, or even a semi-colored race of Indians, half
' as well ofl in comfort and contentment as the
: b!t?\es of CaU'lma or Virginia. Their jests tod
their jibes, however, can have little influence on
those who are accurately informed and compel
ttnt to tudeeof the relative position and condition
of the two countries, and their mutual dependen
cif? Hie condition of the black race ia our
Southern States, is, generally speaking, a condi*
tion of comfort. From the application of the word,
however, to the serfs in the old world, who have
c been so lony plundered, beggared, and oppressed
by h tyrant aristocracy, it is supposed that the coh
!ored rare in this land are equally plundered, ma!,
treated, and wretched. But such is not the case.
If the colored race were to receive their liberty
to-morrow in the Southern States, they would in
one year be reduced to a condition of barbarity,
ignorance, and want, such us St. Domingo now
I presents, and the French and British West India
islands will toon indicate. The black race cannot
exist in any other condition than that of pupilage
and servitude, side by side with the Anglo"
' Saxon race, so as to secure comfort for themselves
and peace and tranquillity to the country. In process
of ]ime, Southern slavery will disappear as
a |>rruiiai luuuiuun oi society, in the same way
t.9 the red race, whose moral and intellectual attributes
unfitted them for the civilization which
the European lace has attained. The taunts, and
slurs and tibes, therefore, which the London and
Paris press, in their ignorance and wantonness,
> cast against us, in consequence of the existence
ol slavery here, spring lrom their utter ignorance
I ol our institutions, and their evident incapacity
to judge of the circumstances under which fhey
kuve grown up in this land.
iSyi'ahbutsok Cliches.?Squabbles and rivalries
among the different cliques which have fallen into
the wake of the great popular movement which is
going to lift General Taylor into the Presidential
chair on the fourth of March next, are beginning
to break out, not only in New York and Albany,
but also down East, as far as Boston, and else|
where- We hope these quarrels and selfish squab;
bles will come to a head and expend their force
1 iong before the next fourth of March, and leave the
j n?-w President without the benefit of their advice
or wisdom.
We now understand the particulars of the deadly
j feud which haw broken out between the Seward
clique, commanded by Thurlow Weed, in Albany, |
and the Collier clique, officered by several indi- j
j viduals in this city and elsewhere. The difference
between theee cliques springs from personal
rivalry for election to the United States Senate, to j
be made at Albany by our next Legislature. Other ,
j Bquabbles, in other quarters, are brewing, both in
I New York, and in Albany, which we shall watch
and develop# as fast as they come to a head. A?
j the fourth of March approaches, and the fumea of
| the sp?ils begin to be smelled, these different
1 equibbles will, no doubt, increase. >
i Theie are, also, it appears, seme very Berioua
difficulties wringing up in Boston, among the whig
ranks, especially in that quarter which was generally
known under the name of the "Essex Junta,"
about forty years ago, but which now is more
commonly understood by the cognomen of the
"cotton aristocracy" of Lowell and Boston. It
serms that a rather serious feud has arisen between
Abbott Lawrence aid Daniel Webster, and
that the former gentleman, on Monday evening
last, was very severe, by implication, upon Mr.
Webster, for the opinion said to have been ex- |
presjed by him as to General Taylor's unfitness '
for the Presidency.. It will be recollected there
was a story afloat, a short time back, of Abbott j
Lawrence having offered, or having been ready to I
give, a hundred thousand dollars to pay the j
expenses of the recent election, provided he
could have the nomination for the Vice Pr??i- I
dency. It ia probable, however, that Mr. Law- !
rence has contributed a very Urge amount to the i
election fund, and we hear, in several quarters, I
that he has commenced a movement by means of
agents, among sundry newspapers in this city, in ,
order to put down Mr. Webster, and oust him, if
possible, from all chance of obtaining any position
in the new cabinet. There is some color for these
surmises, arising from diflerent quarters; and the
special agents and organs of Mr. Webster in this
city, are beginning seriously to think that he will
be left out in the new programme of the future cabinet.
They are, therefore, already arranging their
plana for carrying the abolition question to a much I
grea er extent, in |>opular agitation, than has
ever before been attempted in this country. The
Cotnmtrctml Adrertiur, a well known special
organ of Mr. Webster in this city, comes out in
this view, with a proposition for the absolute extinction
of slavery throughout the I'nited States,
on a plan similar to that under which it was effected
by the British government in the West Indies.
If this movement, commencing with Mr. Webster, j
should b? carried out, the probability is that the )
free soil party, in less than six months, will prevail
far beyond what it has yet done under the lead of
Mr. Van Buren. We expect, also, that Mr. Web.
iter ^ ill show a strong hand next spring in the
Senate at Washington, against Abbott Lawrence
ar.d his political relations with the administration
of (jlereral Taylor.
There will be amusing incidents in deyelope"
ment soon, all around the country.
Great Political Festival at tiik Irvino

hotel keepers, who keeps the Irving House, and
his corps of euuiniert, are making preparations for
a splendid public festival, which is intended to be
given to the Won. Mr. Fillmore, Vice-l'resident

will be th? re, Mr. Collier, of Albany, and several
others; but we do not hear any mention made of
Mr Wtbster, or of <x-Govemor Seward, in connection
with this affair.
Apropos of this hotel: The well known Howards
seem to possess aj>eculiar genius for getting up and
managing splendid h<>tel?. The attractions they
present must be immense. We learn that ten or !
twelve newly married couples have put up at this
tplendid establishment during the la*t two days,
in order to sjtnd the honeymoon in iN'ew Vork.
The braiititul brides may be most generally
seen in the drttto circleeof the I'arx and Broadway
Yikcimia.?The nmarkable close run between i
Taylor and Casa in the "Old Dominion," has induced
us te prepare, with great labor and care,
full and complete tablet of the returns reoeived,
which we piea^nt to politicians, a* a matter of
gr?at interest at thia time
Wuo ptoui ths Govbbjimsht JhweuxI?We
give, in reply to thia question, a few days ago, a
brief paragraph, which we perceive haa created
considerable commotion in the bosom of a weekly
cotemporary, from which we publiaha very curious
statement, or hypothesis, on the robbery of
the jewels at Washington. It will he found in
another column, copied from that useful paper on
police matters and intelligence, called the National
Police iSattUt. With regard to the charge of
borrowing the ideas oi our cotemporary, and publishing
(he hypothesis of the editor before he
published it himself, we hardly know what serious*
reply to make. Every piece ot intelligence
collected by the Htrald, may be claimed next
week, and deemed larceny in us, by some coteinpsrary,
who might have dreamt or supposed he
had Mich ideas wandering through his brain, at a
similar period of time.
Hut enough on that point. A word to another
and a different *et ot philosophers. Our highly
respectable cotemporary, well known in the community
at the Plainfield, Jackson, and other bank
windlers, have lelt their hearts very much griey-t
ed, and iheir toes sharply ptoched, because we
anticipated some defalcations at Washington and
elsewhere, when the locofocos shall march out of
power, "bag and baggage,V and make room for
General Taylor, and the Taylor republicans, to
come in. Whenever swindling, cheating, or
s'ealing, on a large or a small scale, is the topic
of discussion, or becomes the point of an article,
it is very natural that the Plainfield ilank
swindlers, who have not been delivered up to the
grand juries of New Jersey by the present Governor
oi New York, lut who will be handed over to
justice by the next?it is very natural that their
consciences?it they have any such article in their
composition?should be touched ; but in spite of
a.w.h apnaihilitv in the nw'inHlora nf tko
we still persist in the strong belief that
defalcations and malfeasance in office will
be developed on the exit of the locofocog. Why,
even before they are gone out of power,
roguries are discovered. It is but the other
day that we gave an account of a very serious
defalcation in the Baltimore post office?
amounting to fifteen thousand dollars. We all
know, when General Harrison overthrew the administration
of Mr. Van Buren, that the party
going outf exhibited a list of defalcations, robberies
and plundering?, to the amount of several
millions of dollars. Now, during the season of
rich clover which existed during the Mexican
| war, when one hundred millions of dollars were
! expended, there has been " ample roem and verge
enough" for a similar set of beauties to perpetrate
a similar .^et of financial ratcalties.
Our highly virtuous, religious, indicted, but uncaught
and unconvicted Plainfield Bank swindlers,
may feel grieved at these remarks, because
they tread on their toes; but we hope they will
learn patience and resignation in this world, in
j order to prepare themselves, as far as possible, for
i another sphere, either in the State prison of New
| Jersey, or in a similar one "beyond that bourne
from whence no traveller returns." I
Thk Wilmot Proviso Coming rp Aoaii*.?In- I
dic&tions are apparent that the Wilmot proviso j
will again become an important topic of discus- 1
sion at the approaching session of Congress, which
will convene in the beginning of next month.?
There is a strong intention existing among the
masses of the people, throughout the country, to
settle this knotty business in relation to slavery
in the new territories, as soon as possible, so as to
leave the administration of General Taylor free
from any trouble or annoyance on that vexed
question. To this course of policy, however.
there isastiong opposition, springing up among
the free-soil*T8 of the North, and among certain 8
others who profess to have aided in electing
General Taylor. (
The commencement, thus early, to agitate this t
proviso again, will embarrass the question at the ?
next session ol Congress, and may lead to doubt 1
and difficulty in its permanent settlement. We
think, however, that the materials of the old Con
gresa will be sufficient to put an end to the di?- |
cussion, and pass a law for the organization of the
new territories on such principles of compromise "
as will satisfy all reasonable men, throughout the t:
country, however so much it may dissatisfy the '
free-soilers of the North, or the ultra nullifiera of
the South, in another point of view, it will be
well for the present Congress to settle this ques- ?
tion, and put it at reat. We are persuaded, from y
information which we have received, that should 4
the Wilmot proviso be incorporated in the law for a
the organization of the new territories, and placed y
before General Taylor for hi9 signature, he will c
place his veto on it at once. It is true that va
rious rumors are in circulation, leading the mind e'
to btlieve that General Taylor would not veto []
such a law; but we have more confidence in the '1
sources from which we derive our information, "
than we have in any authority yet furnished on I
the other side of the question. ['
OrER* am) Fashion.?The establishment of an e
(>I?eia in fashionable society, on the plan of that in ?
London, Parisor Naples, in the city of New York, c
is not a n atter of easy accomplishment, although 1
the attempt to do so looks \ery well on a aubscrip- y
tion night, when all the fashionables are collected ''
together and present a beautiful coup (Vail. The ?
first night of "llernani" was very brilliant; but on
the second night the attendance was very meagre? n
although the singing was much better. How is b
this? It grows out of the attempt to create invidi- 8
ous distinctions in society in this city, by the estabIishment
ot subscription nights for the ton? 1
and extra nights for the public at large. We don'1 *
believe that this system will succeed at all in New '
York. The respectable, decent, and sometime* r
very beautiful people, who frequent the dressi>3xes ^
of the I'ark, llowery, and other theatres, wil' a
never patronire any l>i?era where an attempt is h
made to institute stidi invidious and ridiculous *
distinctions. t
Another point in relation to the Opera. Therein J
a sad war.t of economy and management on the li
part of the manager. In spite of all the puflery in ^
the newspapers, paid by him, the excuses outrun *
tnr receipts, rie nas two oj>era trouprt, immense
chorutes, and is, in other respects, running to
about one-third or one-fourth unnecessary excuse;
while his attempt to have subscription nights and ^
extra nights, gives him only two or three nights in
the wi ek worth anything. We must give some advice
to Mr. Fry, occasionally, and allow him to
abute us through his agents and critics, and the
disreputable press, as much a- he pleases?we care
nothing lor what they say.

it to be inimitable. Mrs. Shaw as Udith, has, indeed, 1
achieved a triumph ; we must oonfess that, until we *
aw her performance of the part, we had a prejudice *
against this character of Dickens;, but Mrs. Shaw's T
vivid and esrneft impersonation of the proud and sen
eimc woman, woo ircu ner degradation in netng no- n
solutely h matter of bargain: her bearing towards Mr. a
l'omtx j, after the failure of ber first appeal, and all e
the subsequent developments of the character which C
re so univer*ally known to the thousands of Dickena' t
read* , have displayed all the beauties of Kdith's part s
in the most admirable manner. Mr. Plaoide's Captain
Cuttle ia a most truthful delineation of the honest old ,
sailor ; Clarke's Mr Carkar. too, is well done. Mr. ?
Clarke haa much improved of late. J. M. Scott as c
Bunsby. the oranle. does his part capitally?in dresa, g
tyle, gait, and speech, be fills the part ef Captain
Cuttle's oracuiar friend most admirably. We must j
not forget Toon? Walcot plays him well?he is Diok- I
en's Toots all over. Miss Taylor's Susan Nipper, and 1
Mrs Walcot's Florence, are both much applauded. I p
Miss Taylor, especially, has made quite a hit in her i ti
part. To-night Dombey k Son will be repeated. | ?
bow f n Thbatre. ? The entertainments at this j 0
house, during the past week, have been of the first 1
erler. What with the new drama of " Martin Scher- 1 0
telle," the admirable singing of the New Orleans S?* t
renadera, the irlfeh eccentricities of Barney Williams, *
and the thrilling drama of ?? Life, or Soenes of Early J
Vice.'' the patronn of the Bowery have, indeed, had a
no cause of oomplaint as to lack of amusementi. The ?
bouse has been well attended every evening, and. in c
point of patronage, the Bowery can favorably compare e
notes with any other place of entertainment, bo'h as ?
to numbers aiid respectability. To night, that excel- fi
lent young actress. Miss Wemyw. will appear as An- v
nette. In the famous domestic drama of the " Maid o
and the Magpie " This is a part in which she will ap- a
pear to much advantage. Miss Wemyss will yet ao- a
quire a most elevated position as an actress. The v
larce of the " Limerick Boy'' will be played next, and r
afford an opportunity to Barney Williams to display t
his amasing acting. The New Orleans Serenade!* ' h
will nextmug a number of their bent songs, not for- ti
getting their burlesque on the Italian Opera. We g
cannot pan this performance without a word of c
praise. 'J'beir perfi rmances are chaste and musically n
correct. and the execution tf Master Ole Bull is really ?
beautiful Several of the pieces were encored last era- w
Ding, and the whole passed off excellently. tl
Bigadwat Thkatme. ? This bouse was densely V
:rowded last night, to witness the magnificent Forrest ?
a his splendid enaotment of King Lear, it was Mr- o:
'01 reft's benefit, and the attendance was auch as to b
'tow the high appreciation the publie entertain" for *
his great American tragedian. The farce of the gi
' Double-bedded Room" followed, in which high is
omic talent was ably displayed by the various ar- gi
ists. This erening, an attractive programme is spread pi
igain before the public, of which the advertisements 11
lontain the full details. w
National Thkatbk.?The bill of last evening con- <*<
listed of " Charles 11," " New York as it la,'' and the
Idiot Witness.*' Mr. John R. Scott's Captain Copp w
so well known that it Is wholly unnaoeanary to say dl
inytbing in its praise. The other part* were as weU {jj
mstaised as usual, and the piece wh warmly applaud- si
id. The local drama of " New York as it is" seems
o possess ignite as much Interest as ever for the fre- Ci
luenters of this pretty theatre, and it is put upon the
lage in auob a manner as to present a great deal of SI
ttraction. The melo-drama of the " Idiot Witness " tL
Inifhed the entertainments. To-night Mr. John R.
cott takes bis benefit, and will appear on the oooa- 'J
Ion, in the part of Rolla, one In which he is deprvedly
popular. ' New York as it is " will be re- ta
eaieu, ana toe VBirrwinnsnu win conclude with w'
be mtlo-drama of the Fatal Snow-storm.*' The
rand spectacle of the *' Spirit of the Waters" will ke as
evlved on Monday next. tb
Butok'i Thiatbi.?" Dombey and Son" was again y,
ppreeented at this pretty theatre, to a very well filled at
ouse. This piece, as got up and performed by oc
Ir. Burton and bis talented oompany, will always
raw a respectable audienoe, aa the oftener you see it cl
tue more Interest jou find in the piece, and the mare
erfect the representation. Mr. Burton, as Captain *
uttle, stands dcoidedly alone in this character,
Lining fresh laurels on each night of its perf>rmnee.
Mr. Raymond, as poor Toots, appears to be
ompletely out out for this character-his youth- iD
il appearance, his voice, his slim figure, togeber
with his clever conception of the character as tti
Dtendedtobe represented by the author, altogether at
take Mr. Raymond the "Toots" of Burton's theatre, pt
Irs. Vernon, Mrs. Brougham, Mrs. Knight, and Miss go
1111, are most ptrfect and excellent in their respective of
arts. Miss Hill is fast becoming a great favorite; she of
i pretty and modest in her manners, which is appre- en
lated by a deserving audienoe. Tne aew hurletta an
ailed "Pas de Fascination," was well played, and re- go
eived with loud signs of approbation. The evenings T
ntertainmcnts concluded with the laughable faroe tb
ailed the ' Irish Engagement." Mr Brougham as Tim tb
lafTerty, as on former nights, kept the house well ni
mused. To night "The Winterbottoms," '-Pas de ct
afcination," the "Irish Engagement." and the bur- af
rrr|ue on the tragedy of ".Vietumora, or the Last of tb

City Intelligence.
The WV.ATHra ?The weather, yeoterday, was quite
levant, notwithstanding the sky, for the greater por- |
ion of (he day, was obscured by clouds. There was '
very indicstion of rain, and it is probable another .
f those unpleasant seasons of which November has '
en so fruitful, is at hand.
Cleaning thf. Strckt* ht Cortiaut.?The system
f cleaning the streets by contract has now been ,
pstrd. and will not answer at all. In consequence of ,
be inordinate amount whioh the eity had to pay last
ear, tbe voice of the whole popul oecalled for the conract
i<y?tem. The Common C'ounoll obeyed the call, '
nd.in a short time, the names of all the contractors 1
rere announoed, with the amount they were to reeive,
for Btriotly performing the obligations they had
ntered into. Several weeks elapsed after the signing,
ealing, and delivering of these contracts, before the
mt woik was done; and when it was begun, there
ran no perceptible differenoe. According to the terms
f these contracts the streets were to be swept twice
week, and the Aldermen of the wards were to give
certificate to the contractor, to the effect that the
'ork bad been faithfully performed, before he coold
eceire his money. Have the obligations of these conracts
been performed ? Possibly the latter part may
ave been; but it is unreasonable to suppose that
here is an Alderman in the city who has so littie reard
for its interests as to give a certificate when he
ould net reaoh his plaoe of business, even if it were
ot more than three blocks distant from his residence,
Ithout witnessing more filth than he oould see in a
hole month under the old system In no single seoion
of the city are tbe streets, at the present time, in
rupcr orurr; our are mey n&eiy to *e, unless tne oor- I
orate authorities take the matter in hand, and <
ave the necessary work done at the expense '
r the contractors. Never wa? the elty in as i
nrrijly filthy a condition as at this time. The Sixth <
ard, in its most central part, is ene dense man of t
1th, and the streets are made the receptaole of all the |
trbage which accumulates; the consequence of whioh I
, the whole neighborhood is filled with a most dlsarreable
and unhealthy odor. The fourth ward is in I
rrcitely the same oondition; and if the decomposing i
Ith is not removed during the winter, the whole city '
ill In the spring be the scene of some direful epi- i
MBle. If the streets are not cleaned, of course the i
>ntiactors will not be paid; but what is the sum ne- t
Mary to keep them as they should be. in comparison
ith the health of the city, and the sacrifice of hun- I
reds of lives, whioh will most surely be the result? <
Ince the contracts were first entered into, the streets i
ire been oleaned but twice, and on botb these occ?- i
ons by heavy rains, the contractors having had no \
tnd in it whatever. It Is to be hoped the Common i
:>uncil will for their own credit sake.devise some means
r whioh the city may present a more oleanly appearice.
and not leave the thousands of strangers who visit
e city every day, to suppose that the people of New
ark ar? of inat slovenly cast the streets would indioate.
bus far the citizens have oomplained most loudly,
it to no effect, and it really seems that if they do not
ke hold of the matter themselves, there will be no
?k done.
A Cash or Stir ilk.?About eight o'clock last night>
one of the Kulton ferry boats was about entering
e slip, on the Brooklyn side, a woman was seen to
iliberately step over the chain at the stern, and
row herself into the river. The boat was itnmediely
stopped, but she sunk before any assistanoe
nld be rmdeied her. Who she was, could not be
ceitained, but she was said to be young, and of very
k pec table appearance. She had a black hood tied
Dsely around her face, so that her features could not
i distinctly seen, 'i here is probably some sad affair
blch led to her premature and unhappy end.
Fi?k.?A fire broke out about half past two o'olock 8
isterdav morning, In the house No. 133 Beekman *
reet, which was extinguished before any material '
jury wai sustained.
Thk Strict Mish iahs?The competition among
lis class of persons, seems to be greater than among
ly others. There are in the city, male and female,
obably two hundred, more than half of whom are
verned by one proprietor. There is on the east side
the city, a man who keeps on hand a large number
organs, tambourines, banjos. and monkeys. He
iploys the performers at a oertain prioe per day, .
id requires them to make sufficient to yield him a "
od hire for the use of instruments and monkies ? v
bey rcour the whole city, and at every window where
ey can tee any one, commence pitying, and send
e monkey up with a little basket to gather the pen- "
en. A few days since one of these travelling must- t;
sns Mopped in front of a house in the Bowery, and 8
t?r the tlrst tune was finished, the monkey ascended a
e leader, and by the aid of the shutter, got on the ti
ndow sill. As socn as the second tune was eomenced.
he took a small basket off his head, and hand- e
1 it out to the lady who was at the window. She did L
)t give the penny as soon as be desired, whereupon t!
flew into her face, whioh, in an instant, streamed /
Ith blood. She made every effort to throw it from |(
r, but in vain. After It hud scratched her face and
rn her clothing a* it wished, it very quietly returned
its master by the same way it had got up. If the 11
limal has been taught such tricks, the fellow who C
tnies it should be severely puninhed. There is ano- :
ier who carries a small table, upon whioh the monkey i
inces the Polka. Besides the organists, there are many ,
hers. There are some s?ven or eight, maleand female,

which waa alike wonderful and fortunate in Us

in the progress of his labors, it became neoesaary t?

used. When near the top. having a plank with him
In the tub, the curbing and earth around him in tantiy
gave way, and carried man, plank and tub, out
of Might, with the velocity of thought. Instantly efforts
irere made to rescue the man. Peril attended every
movement to those above and him below. But they
lug on. and, after a while, could hear the voice of
their subterranean friend calling for help! Anon he
gave directions how an>l where to strike?a< the least
raise step might overwhelm them all in a common ruia.
At the end of an hour, he was rescued from his perilous
position, not materially injured. By the strangest
coincidence possible, after falling some fifteen feet,
the plank with which he was ascending, was arrested
In its progress downwards by the surrounding walls,
ind the falling material above him beoatne clogged at
the same instant very near his head. He filled all the
racant space left in the falling mass of timbers, plank,

joolly passed the word of caution to those above, as
iood as tb<-y were near enough to hear his votoe?

he genuine notes thould ever coma to light. learn
hat all the owners of these notes hare agreed to this
imposition, and have U1 expressed themselves satisfied
