The Anniversaries.
"We are now in the midst of the New York anniversares?those
assemblages of Moralists, Christians,
Philosophers, Atheists, Saints, and Sinners,
who are generally brought together at this season
of the year, to exhibit the curiosities of the mind,
and amuse and instruct their generation.
During the last few days we have been enabled
to place before the country fuller and more accurate
reports of these anniversaries than have ever
been hitherto presented to the American people.
The interest and influence of such assemblages
have, without doubt, been increasing for some
years past; n full account of their progress and of I
their opinions seems, therefore, to be a necessary
part of journalism, and of the history of our own
extraordinary age. Fifteen years ago, solitary and
alone, we commenced this curious historical record
in the columns of this journal. IIow vastly
both the meetings and the journal which recorded
them have grown into importance since that time!
Already about half a dozen of these assemblages
have been recorded in our columns, most of them
cf an ordinary and common-place character, disclosing
movements made to forward religion and
morality upon the old plan, with the old weapons?
money, Hlusie, unu iiirmueiiwijr. iiuiuiiig ui a
very exciting or interesting character has been exhibited,
except in that assemblage where we find
the original agitators of anti-slavery assuming un
important position, relating to the history of their
past transactions, and disclosing what th^y mean
to do in future.
Anti-slavery is a species of socialism of American
growth. During the last ten or twelve years, I
we h?ve had importations of foreign socialism, both
from France and England, and, singular to relate,
he French system of socialism seems to have surpassed
in popularity and progress that of any other
foreign manufacture of the kind. The anti-slavery
agitators, now assembling iu this city, are boasting,
day and night, of the success, thus far, which they
have achieved in purtially disorganising the two
old |>arties, and forcing both of them to assume
more or less their own ultra ground. In one of the
speeches made at one of their meetings, the speaker
congratulated his auditors upon the fact that
they had forced John Quincy Adams to take the
ultra ground he had assumed long before his death,
and that they, by their agitations, had compelled
both the whig and democratic parties at the North
to come out as far as they had already done, upon
what is called the free soil question.
Wc think there is some ground for these agitators
in taking this amouf.t of credit to themselves.
But they do not confine their operations or denunciations
to the political parties of the day. We
perceive that these men, with a degree of energy
and recklessness without parallel, denounce almost
the whole Christian church of the land,
aud hurl condemnation against the whole body of
clergy, for the course which this class of public
teachers has pursued for some years past. Thus,
We find that politicians and politics, clergymen and
the elm b, the constitution and the laws?in a
word, al: the settled institutions of the country,
I meet win the general denunciation and condemnation
of these agitators, because slavery exists in
the Southern States, and they cannot reach the
evil, as they call it, there, and root it out.
There can be no doubt but that these agitators,
who have generally sprung from lloston, and who
only come to New York annually, to pour out their
opinions and denunciations here, have operated to
an extraordinary extent upon the public mind of the
North, during the lust twenty years. Under their
influence, the anti-slavery party whs organized in
the general election of IHII, and jiolled over (?0,fXt0
votes at their very first eflbrt. Under the same
influence, though with a slightly different name,
the free soil party was organized in the North, and
four or five times as many votes w ere polled, laying
a foundation for the complete disorganisation of
the old whig and democratic parties. The antifclavery
men may, therefore, take credit to themselves,
not without grounds, for obtaining a victory
1 over both the great factions which hitherto have
governed the country, by oj>enmg the door to
a state of tilings which must inevitably bring the
North and youth in dreadfully hostile array against
each other, at an early day, and possibly even at
the next session of Congress.
The proceedings and the seeches at some of
these unniversaries, therefore, haw an important
and practical hearing upon the progress of public
events of a general and national character. The
nnti slavery men are, however, not alone in the
business. The socialists of the French school
belong, in a degree, to the same formation, and are
included in the same category. Albert Brisbane
lias just come back from France, from which country
he has been ordered away by the government,
in consequence of his inflammatory speeches upon
the subject of socialism at some of the meetings of
the socialists at Pans. The socialists on this side
of the wa'er, whose organ is the New York Trilime
and its coteries, and who received the first
genn of their doctrine from philosopher Brisbane,
are also very busy, and will exhibit themselves in
their speeches, debates, and their love-feasts, to
the admiration, the surprise, and the laughter of
the community.
But there is one feature connected with this singular
agitation of all descriptions, which begins to
owakt n the uttrntion of sobriety and seriousness.
They B|>pear to be approaching towards a general
union and combination with each other in working
upon the public mind in such a way and
as utterly to disorganize th? two old parties, and to
throw the whole country into a violent disagreement
and disunion upon the question of antihlavery,
the results of which may bo seen in the i
next Congress.
It is in Una |>oint of view, to which we wish to
direct the attention of the community, that these
societies are important) far tatf Begin to eajutet
something beyond mere tarce, extravagance, and
folly. Hitherto these socialists and fanatics, of all
kinds, have ranted and raved, sometimes in Boston,
sometimes in New York, occasionally varying
their exercises with a love least, at Brook Farm or
some other place. But since the influence which
they have exerted upon the two great parties is
wen and felt in political action, they nre assuming
more importunt uirs, and will evidently attempt to
affect more dangerous and more hurtful purposes
Uian have hitherto been known.
The friends and supporters of the Federal Union
would do well to hold themselves in readiness and
in unison with the present patriotic < hief magistrate
ut Washington, for there is, we suspect, u bad
time coming in Congress and the country.
Progress of tlie American Newspaper Press.
The enterprise recently and successfully undertaken,
by which, on the arrival of the European
steamers at Halifax, the intelligence brought by
them is conveyed by express to this city, and from
this central jioint diffused all over the country,
hns, naturally enough, attracted 11 great deal of attention.
It bus received the favorable notice of
the Press on the other side of the Atlantic, and its
importance and value have been abundantly felt
and appreciated throughout the United States.
Some of the smaller journals, however, have raised
quite an outcry against the arrangement, representing
it as an "odious monopoly," a wicked
"confederacy," and what not, on the part of the
influential and leading journa s of New York. Of
course, the prime mover of t is terrible piece of
immorality in procuring early intelligence is found
to be the proprietor of the New York Herald. In all
wickedness of this kind he is quite an adept; and,
as usual, in this fresh transgression against all thilt
is pure, and lovely, tmd of good report in the way of
newspaper enterprise, he is the chief offender.
Well, we suppose that he must submit to his fate.
and be set down as incorrigibly depraved in all
matters of this nature.
These curious accusations against this new enterprise
in journalism, suggest, however, the propriety
of a brief review of the progress of the newspaper
press of this country, and a glance at its present
condition. When we entered on our career
in this city, twenty-five years ago, it was an easy
matter to publish a newspaper. It was a task
quite within the compass of the exchequer of a
loafer and the brains of a blockhead. Neither capital,
nor intellect, nor genius, were at all necessary
to establish a daily journal in those times, just as,
at the present day, we see, almost every week, one
or two obscene sheets make their appenrance,
under the name of newspapers, issued from filthy
cellars by some desperate vugabiyids. The newspapers
of that day relied altogether upon their exchanges
for news, and, of course, the intelligence
which they gave the readers was meagre, stale,
und unsatisfactory. A new spirit shortly afterwards
was infused into the daily journals, and, for
the first time, "expresses" were introduced. These
expresses consisted of the employment of relays
of swift horses, by means of which interesting intelligence
was carried from Philadelphia, Boston,
and other important points, to the city of New
York. Occasionally these expresses were extended
to very considerable distances, and the beneficial
effect was speedily acknowledged by the whole
community, especially by the mercantile and commercial
classes. Intelligence of an important nature,
exercising influence on the state of the mar.
kets, and the general operations of trade, was thus
taken out of the hands of monopolists, and diffused
throughout the whole community.
The construction of railroads opened a new and
w ide field to the newspaper enterprise, which had
then just begun to develope itself. Locomotives
were now employed instead of the old "pony expresses,"
and often at a great expense to the newspaper
establishment for whose benefit they were
used. The circulation and influence of New York
journalism were now rapidly augmented. News
from all parts of the conntry was conveyed to this
city with great industry, and at a very heavy cost.
Extras were issued with the utmost promptitude on
the reception of the intelligence thus obtained,
and circulated all over the city and country. The
result abundantly demonstrated the value of those
arrangements. A great accession was madu to
the circulation of the journals which conducted
those enterprises; and, again, but in a still more
marked und extensive manner than ever, the great
masses of the commercial and business community
were benefitted and secured against the injurious
effects of monopolists and speculators. All
stand alike in the advantages which the press extended.
By the discovery of the electric telegraph, or the
application of that wonderful discovery to practical
purposes by Professor Morse, another great
era in the history of newspaper enterprise in this
country was introduced. At once availing itself
of this powerful agent anil auxiliary, the press employed
the telegraph to the fullest extent. The
expenditure thus involved is very great. Not less
than fifty thousand dollars per annum is expended
by the ussocited press of this city, in carrying out
those telegraphic and express arrangements, against
which the small journals, here and elsewhere,
rail with so much nmustng bitterness. For
this large expenditure, the newspapers in question
receive an adequate return in the increased
and increasing patronage of the public. They
become more valuable and more necessary ; and
in this public patronage the best possible evidence
is afforded of the high value which the community
place upon these telegraphic and express enterprises.
Indeed, the public benefit which is thus
bestowed by the journals of this city cannot lie
exaggerated. Talk of monopoly and exclusiveness
! Why, this is the* very arrangement which
defeats any and all attempts to obtain a monopoly
of early intelligence. There is not a business man
m the community who is not directly interested
and benefitted by this arrangement. By associating
together and expending sums which defy competition,
the press puts it out of the power of individuals
to monopolize for tln-ir own exclusive benefit
the important intelligence which it gives to the
whole country in advance of all other means of
obtaining the news. All this is perfectly obvious.
The secret of all the miniature tempest which
certain small obscure papers have attempted to
raise about our express arrangement*, is found in
the fact?melancholy and incontrovertible?that
the establishment of a profitable newspaper, now,
requires an enormous outlay of capital. Newspaper
property lias become valuable, in consequence
of the progress of journalism, and its
promptitude in availing itself of all the improvements
c>f the age in locomotion and telegraphing.
The simple reason why these small fry
call out against what they term "monopoly," is,
that they do not possess the means of making such
newspapers as arc wanted now-a-days. Publishing
newspapers has become a costly business. The
expense of telegraphic news for a single week
would almost break down half a dozen of the struggling
little jotirriuls, which d uounce all those arrangements
by w hich the public interests are so
essentially promoted, and the great newspaper establishments
maintained in public favor. These are
the sad and simple facts in this whole bnsinoss;
and it is quite likely that the " monopoly," und
" exelusiveness," and " confederacy," and other
wickednesses of which we have been guilty in
newspaper enterprise, will continue, even in a stiU
more aggravated form, notwithstanding the passionate
remonstrances of those of our fellow-sinners
who cannot, to the sume extent, sin against
the public.

Tun Gbf.at Theatrical War.?Macready yet
in the Field.?Mr. Macready is a man of pluck..
He does not intend to give tip the ship, at the occurrence
of the first storm. An announcement has
been made that he will appear to-night, at the Astor
Place theatre, which will be seen, by referring
to the theatrical advertising column, in this
day's journals. He has been induced to try his
strength and hick a second time, by an invitation
signed by Washington Irving and a number of
other gentlemen, which we published yesterday,
requesting him to finish his farewell engagement
on the American stage, and assuring him that they
and the friends of order in the country will support
him against all rioters. He has also caused to be
published, a series of statements and letters, from
llulwer, Fonblanque, and others, residing in England,
completely disproving all the charges hitherto
brought against his character by Mr. Ferrest; and
also exhibiting Wikofl's testimony as utterly false
and disgraceful to that notorious personage. These
statements and letters will be found in another portion
of this day's Herald.
On the other hand, we perceive that the opposite
party, or the " b'hoys," the elementary tno'i of
New York, the rowdies, rioters, or whatever else
tliey may be called, are ulso determined to dispute
litis question, and fight the battle o Waterloo over
again, or get well licked into the bargain. Here
is the pronunciumento which was issued yesterday,
by those chaps, and posted on vacant places and
posts around town:?

American Committee.
This is cer'ainly a bo'd and during step on the
part of the rioters ; and unless the Mayor, police,
and public authorities, aided and assisted by the
committee who have invited Mr. Macready to the
field?unless they manage the aflair with more
skill than Matsell and hismendid on Monday night,
the b'hoys may be able to accomplish their work
a second time, and drive Macready again from the
stage. It is, therefore, a very curious question in
law and government, as well as theatricals, which
is now mooted, and which will be determined tonight,
at the Astor Tlace thentre. Shall un organized
mob or the public authorities conquer T?
As to the pretext put forth, that the seamen of the
British steamer in this port has intended to take
the course attributed to thein 111 the hand-hill, we
do not believe there is a word of truth or reality in
the matter.
We have heard, indeed, that many of the rioters
say they have a precedent in the history of theatricals
in this city, for persisting in the resolution
that Mr. Macready shall not make his appearance
again, for some years at least, after having
been driven once from the stage. The precedent
to which they refer, is that of the case of Mr.
Wood, who happened t? get into a quarrel with a
critic attached to the Courier and Enquirer. The
energetic proprietor of thutjournul organized a highly
respectable mob, went to the Park theatre, and
drove both Mr. nnd Mrs. Wood from the stage of that
establishment, nnd the former for a while from every
American stage thereafter. The riot was managed
with great skill and generalship?even brigadier
generalship?and we believe if the talent displayed
on that occasion had been properly employed by
Mr. Polk, when a certain application was made,
he might linve succeeded in finishing the war
with Mexico sooner than he did. The management
of the mob on last Monday night, and the
generalship displayed on the occasion, was very
good, but certainly not superior to that which
characterized the Wood riot at the Park theatre.
Both generals deserve consideration.
Now, it is well known that it was considered
a settled case, that Wood should never appear
again on the American stage. But he did
appear again. In Mr. Macrcady's case, there
is a like difference of opinion, and a similar
crisis. The respectable, literary, and philosophical
portion of the city are determined that he shall
appear again, and have the decision of Monday reversed
to-night. If they are properly supported
by the Mayor and police, and if there are courage
and capacity in Washington Irving and his
associates, to act with as much skill as they write,
we rather think that Mr. Macready will succeed,
nnd be permitted to play his engagement, and act
before all those who wish to see him in his fine
characters.
Under these views, we think that although there
may be much excitement around town to-day, and
a good deal of threatening about certain corners,
we do not believe there will be any successful attempt
to drive Macready from the stnge to-night.
The conduct of the rioters, on Monday night, lias
roused the feelings of order and propriety in the
community, to such an extent as will render all
attempts at riot utterly ineffectual and impracticable.
The newspapor press, with some inconsiderable
exceptions, is also very strongly in favor
of order and justice in the business. Mr. Macready
himself has committed no offence against
an American audience, not even ngainst Mr. Forrest,
notwithstanding all that Forrest has written
to the contrary, or all that Chevalier Wikoff has instilled
into his too credulous ear. The rioters will
be well licked to-night, or the city again disgraced.
Mr. Forrest ought to be satisfied?and so should
the " b hoys.
"A Paniei. Comf to Juooment."?The eminently
enlightened "guide, philosopher, and friend"
of the universal human family, and progenitor of a
dozen isms, not forgetting Slievegnmmonism in
newspapers, came out yesterday with an awful
tirade against the entire dramatic profession, and
the whole generation of dramatists, from Sliukspeare
to John Goesin Massa (Ireeley characterizes
Ihe profession to which those affectionate
beings, Macready and Forrest, have devoted their
lives and limbs, as " a miserable vocation." Well,
it is, at all events, as good a vocation as that of a
l'ourierite. In point of costume, the dramatic performer
is decidedly superior to the scarecrow philosopher
; as to taste and temper, the player has
also the advantage ; and in point of morals, we
presume that both " vocations" may be set down
as about on a par. Indeed, judging front some of
the Fourierite love-feasts, we are rather inrlined
10 think l/tat the Fourierites have got a peg or two
farther than their brethren of the dramatic profession.
Philosophy is a very funny " vocation" nowa-days,
and there are some great " actor?" out of
the dramatic profession.

The Capture of Slaver, called the Harriet,
of Philadelphia.
We received rite following account of the capture
of a bliive brig, by a recent arrival from St.
Helena. We give it for puohc benefit, and await
further intelligence:?
On tho 11th of February, 1R49, Her Britannic
Majesty 's sloop Cygnet brought to St. Helena a brig she
bad captured, sixteen days previously, ou the went
coast of Africa, with a large cargo of slaves. amounting
to between eight and nine hundred. The brig prove*
to be tba Harriet, lately belonging to Philadelphia. At
the time of capture, atie had 011 board eight Aiuericau
seamen?via.. John Anderson, mate: John Davis. Kdward
Day. John Williams, Samuel R. Daves, William
O'Donnell, John Hall, and Thomas Uerners, seamen;
all belonging to Boston and Philadelphia. These men
give an account, stating tliut they were the original
crew of the brig under (lie command oi'T. D uling having
leit Boston in June last; that lliey had been to one of
the ( ape de Verde islands, and thence to Uahia. in the
Brazils, with a cargo ot salt; there she took on board a
full slave cargo, which she carried to the west coast of
Africa, and, after landing the chief part of it. Captain
1 ulingsoiu the vessel to a Brazilian, who went out from
1 nliin us supercargo in her, anil who then assumed the
command of the vessel. At this time, Capt. Duling
told the crew that they might go on shore, and tiiat he
would pay them off. This happened at Ainbriz, at
which place there were two American lirigs, on hoard
ul aim 11 the crew endeavored to get a passage, hut
without mcci ts. The crew, dreading a sickly climate,
and being thrown on shore among a parcel of negroes,
u here there was neit tier government nor protection
and being uncertain if they did go on shore there and
survive, (and the uncertainty of a proper opportunity
"tiding to take them away.) chose the only altera 1tive.
of availing themselves of the oiler of the Brazilian
supercargo, of remaining on hoard the Harriet as passengers.
to work their passage back to the Brazils, to
where the vessel was bound. A very short time after,

mid then instantly despatched, with the addition of
seven men to form the crew. After being three days
at sea, she was captured us before mentioned; but on
the boats of the Cygnet boarding her, she had the
Autericun flag displayed, and. iu consequence of tiring
upon the boats, John Hall?being then at the wheel?
was shot through the shoulder, and another of the crew
received a severe cutlass-wound on the skull.
The American seamen say that no time during the
voyage did they receive the least intimation that the
Harriet was to have been sold iu Africa, or be engaged
In the slave trade; because, hud they known it; they
would have quitted the vesssel at some other port.
"W'e have other statements connected with the
above capture, but choose to await later intelligence
before publishing them.
TiieGoi.p Doujvr.?We saw a handful of gold
dollars yesterday in the hands of Mr. Dinamore, of
the firm of Adams Co., the express agents.
They were fresh from the mint at Philadelphia.
They are smaller than five cent pieces. On one
side is the head of liberty with stars, and on the
other, on the margin, the words " United States of
America," with a wreath enclosing the words
"1 Dollar, The coin is small, but beautiful.
Theatrical and Musical.
Bowerv Theatre.?A most numerous and fashionable
audience were in attendance last evening, and the
play of the " Stranger'' was performed much to their
satisfaction; indeed, east as it was last evening, it
could not but give full satisfaction to the moHt critically
inclined audieneo that ever assembled. Mr.
Ilnmblin was the Stranger; Mrs. Shaw, Mrs Ilaller; and
Mr ltyder, the Baron 8teinfort. F.ach one of these
artists plnycd|their part most admirably. The Stranger
was, in the hands of Hnmblin, most splendidly performed;
and the vehement rhccring and repeated outbursts
of applause, which were bestowed on his acting, were
well merited. Mrs. Shaw, us the unfortunate Mrs.
Ilaller. by her admirable elocution, appropriate acting,
aud tine declammlon, was really great; and never have
we seen this part more perfectly filled. Mr. Ryder
played the Baron with his usual good taste; he looked
the soldier well, and his scenes, both with the Stranger
and Mrs. Ilaller. were admirably performed. In this
play, it is not so much the 'acting, in any one of the
parts, that makes it pass off well; it requires a perfect
cost like the one of liistowening. to give it that smoothness
and interest whi^h is so desirable in all performances.
The comic parts of Solomon, the man of letters;
Peter, his son; and Charlotte, the Countess'servant,
were well sustained by Messrs. tiilbert and YVinans,
und Mrs. Sutherland, tiilbert made an excellent Solomon.
with his pomposity, obsequiousness, and correspondence;
whilst YViuans, as Peter, made the audience

' Born to Good Lurk," played Paudeen O'Rafferty Tory
capitally. Mr. Hyun nightly increases in favor with
the public, ns an Irish comedian and vocalist of the first
class. To-night, the tragedy of" Macbeth," which was
received with audi enthusiasm on Monday evening
last, will be repeated, by request, with the same cast as
on that occasion, viz.: Macbeth, Mr. Ilumhlin; Macduff,
Mr. ltyder; l.ady Macbeth, Mrs. Shaw ; dancing,
and the farce of the " Happy Man," with Jiyan, as
1'addy Murphy, will conclude the entertainments.
Broahwat Tiieatrf.?At an early hour last evening,
this beautiful and spacious theatre was filled in almost
every department, to witness the performance of the
Indian character, " Mctamora," by the great American
tragedian, Kdwin Forrest. When he first appeared, the
house resounded with cheers, which only ceased when
their favorite commenced his part. The chieftain of
the Wampanoags. above all other characters which this
distinguished actor personates, seems to its to be one
that particularly suits the histrionic abilities of Mr.
Forrest. Indeed, we doubt much whether auy artist
could cope with him in this line of character; he represents
the red man to the very life; and, during the
piece, made some remarkably beautiful and effective
points. which drew down the loudest acclamations. His
scene witli Nahmeokee. where his child is dead, was sustained
with great ability; his depicting the conflicting
passions of n parent tortured and saddened In beholding
the dear object of his paternal care separated from hiui
for ever, together with the heurt-torturing reflection
that his race was entirely defeated, and no means left
to protect his wife from the persecution of the palefaces,
except by his own knife, which he plunged in
her heart, was represented reluti in ?/>rculiim. Nahmeokee,
by Miss Wallack. was pretty well sustained, as
was also the nart of Oceana, by Mrs. Abbott; but, to
our mind, a change in the cast of female characters
would be a great improvement. Dyott, as Walter, was
excellent; in fact, every character he is cast for re- i
reives all the attention which an educated mind and a
proper conception can impart to it. The other actors
ill tile piece sustained their parts with the best of their
ability. After the curtain dropped, there weie repeated
calls for Mr. Forrest, hut he did not appear. The I
farce of " Vour Life's in Hanger" concluded the per- t
formanccs of the evening; when the audience retired,
highly delighted with the rich treat they had received. 1
Astor rt.air Tiieatrf.?The play of "The Merry J
Wives of Windsor" was performed at this beautiful
thentre to a thin house. With an admirable cast, and
all that attention to the business of the stage, which j
we have a right to expert from the experienced and
accomplished gentlemen who have been entrusted with
the management, the performances of last evening '
merited a house crowded to the door. No doubt the j
recent occurrences operated disadvuntageously. The
reaction, however, will lie prompt and complete. We '
are convinced that a brilliant season Is in store forthii

John in better style. Kvcry light and shndow?every '

Mrs. Pope, Mrs. Murder, and Miss M. Phillips?and
their performances deserved high praise. We must
not forget to make favorable mention of Mrs.
Henry's Dame Quickly. It was spirited and effective.

National TiitATRr..-?'The splendid speclaele of the
" F.nchantor" Is attracting very crowded houses nt this
Ihiatre, and the universal opinion is. that it is without

ever produced at this house. From the first tothela-t

Briiton's Tiir itrk This elegant theatre, the troipe ?
of which contains the best comic actors in New York, L
was wi ll filled last night, and the entertainments wont '
r
off in a very good style. The farce of ' Ills First Peoca- r

humour by Messrs. Johnston, Jordan and Mlssos Chapman
and Hlffert The hurletta of "User Nanny" ramc J

and Mrs Toodle, taken by Mrs Vornon, were most ex- ^

to learn tlmt thi* ludy whose musical talent* and exquisite
voice have been confined to a very limited
sphere for the last few years, has. at the urgent solicitation
of her many friend*, consented to come before
the public, in n concert of no ordinary attractions, in
the course of this mouth. To say nothing of the
amiable and retiring character of .Mrs. B., which of
itself should gather troops of friend* around her, her
bird-like voice and artistic though simple and touching
style of hallad singing fully entitle her to the cognomen
of the American Jenny I-ind ; and we are much
mistaken if this debut of Mrs. U. does not prove an
agreeable surprise to many who huvo never before had
the pleasure of listening to her enchanting voice. We
understand that she is to be assisted on the occasion

by this extraordinary exhibition. No description
could do justice to the beauty, novelty, variety,
and magnificence of these views. They embrace the
scenery of half the globe?beautiful pictures by einl

was hailed with delight by all the people of this groat
city and the thousands now congregated in it. The
morning dawned with the face of the sky obscured by
dark clouds, and every appearance indicated a further
prdtrartiou of the storm. About seven o'clock, however.
the sky might be seen at the northern horizon,
and as the day advanced, the great expanse of darkness
and dreariness gave way to as beautiful
a (lay as May has brought. The streets were
again filled with moving masses of as lair creatures as
ever trod the soil, and all seemed happy and gay. But
with all these?a bright sun, a clear sky, and invigorating
air?there wns one thing which teuded to mar the
pedestrinl enjoyments. The streets Jwere filled with
mud. and so much so, that it was with the greatest
difficulty that ludles could cross them without the total
destruction of shoes. As thu afternoon advanoed. the
wind again changed to east, and floating clouds passed
over the city until nightfall, giving token thnt the
itorm had not yet ended. The evening was far more
pleasnnt tlian any of the week, which was doubtless
hailed as a favor from |Omnip?tonre upon the anniversaries
which they were engaged in celebrating.
Tiie C'itv Evf.sikg Sciiooi.s.?The report of the Committee
on Evening Schools, of thu Board of Education,
has been made, and shows the schools, while in operation
during the last winter, to have been productive of
great good, and generally prosperous. There were
eleven male and four temale schools in operation during
the last winter, which were organized and supported
at a cost of $14.28(1 78. of which sum $3,384 3ft were expended
for property which still remains on hand, nnd
which will be ready for the commencement of another
term. tVhen tho schools were opened, nearly seven
thousand pupilH were registered, out of which about
four thousand attended regularly. Of these, five hundred
und fifty-one were over twenty-one years of age,
and two thousand nine hundred and fifty-four were
over sixteen years of age. making a total of three thousand
five hundred nnd tweutv-flve who were too old to
attend the day schools. The number that could not
nnd wns 872; thnt could read but Imperfectly 1.508.
The number that could not write was 1.500. and 3.007
were not acquainted with the simple rules of arithmetic.
To tills report is appended a report from each of the
teachers engaged in the schools, all of which show, that
while from poor attendance many have made but little
ndTuurcmeut, a great many who were perfectly ignorant
before were enabled, at the closing of the schools,
to read with considerable ease and fluency, besides
having acquired much of the other branches of study.
I hut those schools are. and will continue to be productive
of good none will doubt, and there is every reason
to believe that through the means thus afforded, those
who hud arrived at the ages of manhood and womanhood,
p- rfi rtly destitute of education, may be put in
the < njoymeiit of that aid which will enable them to arrive
at n sperlahle if not enviable literary attainments'
A large portion of the scholars are of foreign birth,
who seek these schools, not only as n means of acquiring
ar, education, but for the purpose of learning the
English language. To such, it will be of two-f dd advantage.
In their nntive lands, they had not the privileges
of schools, and were consequently ignorant, not
r??ily of the world, but of the important subjects of tlielr
own countries ; but now, having in their power tho adrantnges
of education, may not only become acquainted
with the language of the country, but with more of
their nativities than ever before. These schools should
lie cucournged ; and though the city may be at considerable
expense in this establishment anil suooort. the
remit of an enlightened and educated people, now
wrnpptd in ignorance, will more limn repay the outlay,
and thousands be made lmppy.

addition to the Irving House is now about to lie made.
