The Hwiild'B prices for advertiaing, considering fee nit circulation of thU journal, are more reasonable, ?sough apparently higher, than the rates exacted from Ike public by any other establishment in New York. From the simple statement of these facts the public Ma judge for themselves in all advertising matters. The Kcwa. We elsewhere publish a serieaof very interesting j lattere from Havana, giving a fell account of the ?eisure of the steamship Black Warrior, together pith a variety of general information connected irtth the Island of Cuba. Appended to these letters is a statement inade by the agents of the Black Warner, and an important telegraphic despatch from Washington disclosing what course our gov ernment will most likely adopt with regard to this fresh outrage on the part of the authorities of her Majesty of Spain. We perceive that an in effectual attempt was made in the House of Repre sentatives yesterday, to introduce a resolution autho rizing the Committee on' Foreign Affaire to inquire kito and report upon the recent outrages committed by the Spanish officials on the property and persons of American citizens. It is intimated in our despatch that the President will recommend to Congress the propriety of immediately withdrawing from the ?Mtr&l relationship existing between the two gov ernments. Should such a policy be carried out, it li needless to add that every vestige of Bpanish lynasty on this continent would be swept away in a brief period. Straightforward, decided, unflinching Mtion at the hands of the administration, similar to Ikat in the Chinclia Island affair, would be of in Inite service at the present crisis. We have com muted upon this subject in an editorial article. By telegraph from Washington we learn that no information has been received by either our lorernment or the British Minister, relative to the reported failure of the different surveying parties to Becover * route for a ship canal. It is intimated feat the recent unfavorable reports have been set lioat by persons interested in procuring an aban- ! lonment of the enterprise. Such a proceed ing on I iheir part would certainly be of little service to them j It this late day. The officers of both England and France, as well as of this country, are prosecuting I the survey in accordance with instruc tions from their respective governments, and before the orders oould be countermanded a*y will have completed their work and be ready j to report. However, the fact that no official state bents have been received from them, leaves a loop bole for the supposition that they have or may yet Ind a feasible route for the proposed great in., r aational canal. It is understood that the promulgation of Secre tory Marcy's instructions to Mr. Clay, our Minister to Peru, with regard to the outrages on American jneaels at the Chincha Islands, has aroused the representative of the latter government to the urgency of the case. He has accordingly notified he Secretary that full damages will at once be paid ^y Peru for the loss and injury sustained by Captain j IeCerran,of the Defiance. Much difficulty was experienced in procuring a iiorum in the United States Senate yesterday. On i opening several remonstrances were presented st the Nebraska-Kansas bill, one of which pur i to be signed by three thousand residents of Dklyn. The Land Committee unanimously re Ed in favor of the Homestead bill, which w_* i the special order for Monday week. Two bills se of them dividing Arkansas into two Judicial lets ? were passed. After a short debate, a bill oposing to pay Mr. Bart for the use of his solar upas?, the sale of the instrument yielding liim no nuneration , was postponed. The bill to promote i efficiency of the army by a retired list of officers i half pay, next came up on its passage; but after i unsuccessful attempts to procure a quorum, the iy was nnder the necessity of adjourning at one ck. | The House appear- to have been In the most ex rdinary state of excitement throughout the sit Bg, which was protracted till after dark. The estion pending in Co.amittee of the Whole was i bill granting land to Minnesota Territory for id purposes. An amendment was adopted by i of eighty-five to eighty-four, which provides Kt the money received for the reserved sections of sd in railiuitd ti arts shall be paid to those States ich have received no grants of land for internal provements, according to thelrfederalreprc.se:; ion in Congre s. This is a small extension of jus i to the old States; but it should have been di ed according to the whole Congressional re entation ? then the proceeds of the lands lid have been fairly distributed among the pple of the Ftetes.

Ever) m mber of our State Senate wu in atten dance yesterday morning. The prohibitory liquor Mil was amended so as to go into operation on the flr*t of December nstead of August, and the mea sure then passed, by twenty-one yeas against eleven nayc. me idea of the opposition to this measure is afforded in the fact that a remonstrance was Bent j to the Senate yesterday, containing the signatures of ten thousand citizens of New York; but, despite all remonstrances, it is believed that the Assembly will pass the bill by a large majority. Two-thirds of the time allotted for the length of a session has already expired, and the legislature and lobbymen are wotking accordingly, as will be seen by the letters from our correspondent. The lower branch of the Now Jersey Legislature yesterday ordered to a third reading u bill to tormi na' e the monopoly of the Camden and Amboy Rail road Company iu fifteen years, and to campel them to reduce all fares to two-and-a-half cents per mile. The Senate of Massachusetts ordered the engross ment of the bill to aid in the construction of the lloosac tunnel. The House rejected the bill to re peal the Maine Liquor law, by eighty yeas to one hundred and eighty-three nays. Itisthocght that the Maine act now in force will be modifed by an amendment providing for a str.Ngont license system The bark Orline St. John, reported "yesterday *>y telegraph as abandoned, was fallen k with 1st iwTt., lat. 37 45, Ion, G7 50. in addition, tr. the death? be fore mentioned, the tecowd o(TU'ar,'viame not report ed, went into the eabin, where k*: was drowr ed in the night. The survivors, it will be recollected, sustained life by eating the ? ody of a dead com panion. Full particulars of tie awful calamity are given in another page. We would direct attention, to the v?fy able opi nion of Judge fiafman, In the Sixth tnd Eighth Avenue Railroad injunction case, published in an other ookimn. It will be remembered <aat this case came before 1 tbe-court on an applied1 ion to amend the com plalat,?a Well as to extend t he injunction. His honor intimated at the argument, which wae fully reported in the Herald, that the question ou the jimendmtr.t must be disposed ef first. Counsel therefore ? confined themselves to this point, for the provnt. Several amendments wave sought, but the most important was that by which it was proposed to f ct forVa at length in the complaint the reso lutions of the Common Council passed in lf?>l, au thorizing the Sixth and Eighth Avenue Railroad companies to lay down tracks on certain streets. The Judge has adopted the view taken by the plain tiffs1 counsel, and has held that these resolutions did not contradict the fact contained in the original complaint, nor did they alter the grounds on which the injunction was allowed, and that, therefore, the amendment should be granted. The details of the latest European market reports brought by the Asia, and published under the tele graphic head, do not vary from the synopsis fur niched yesterday. We have no additional intelli gence relative to the war movements. On reference to our financial and commercial columns, ft will be i*cn that the news had considerable infkience on financiers and dealers generally. There was quite a fluctuation in stocks. Breadstuffs were less active, its merchants were disposed to await the receipt of private letters by the Asia. Flour was again easier, with rales of common State brands at $8, showing a decline on the Asia's news of about 12& cents per barrel. Corn sold at a decline of 3 cents to 4 cents per bushel. No transactions in wheat indicating a market took place. The cotton- market was quiet, with -moderate sales. Another large fire occurred in this city yesterday. Upwards of sixty thousand dollars worth of pro perty was destroyed, as will be seen by tlie report. lmjiortaiit Movement*" In Tammany Hall? Nebradiu Among the Democracy. During the last few weeks there have been some curious movements among the conflicting democracy of Tammany Hall. They have had some strange votes on the Nebraska question, and some very singular and unique incidents have turned up ? some in the Democratic Gene ral Committee, some in the Council of Sachems, and some in the Tammany Society, each of which is a branch of the general Tammany or ganization. Arouse! democrats, arouse! The (soft) democratic party of Old Tammany, through thick and thin, in consideration of the . spoils, and the great issue at stake, are deter- j mined to have a grand popular meeting in Tam many Hall on the 16th inst., in lehalf of the Nebraska bill, the constitution, Douglas, and the administration. And it is expected that Douglas, the "little giant" himself, large as life, and Senator Weller, Col. Richardson of the nouse, and other distinguished friends of the bill in Congress, will be present to address the assembled democracy on that portentous occa sion. Here is the official vote and programme: ? DEMOCRATIC GENERAL COMMITTEE, TAMMANT n ALL. At a regular meeting of this committee, on the 2d Inst., the following resolution, presented and moved by the Hon. Fernando Wood, was adopted Resolved, lliat a committee of one from each ward be appointed by the Chair, to make arrangement* for a pub lic meeting to be held at Tammany Hull, on Thursday evening, the 16th Inst. , of all those in favor qf the princi ple/ of the till note before the Congress of the i niletl States for establishing qf the Territorial governments for Nebraska and Karnes.

This Van Buren anti-Nebraska assemblage is to have among its speakers John Van Burea, ex-Senator Clemens. John A. Dix, John Coch rane, Isaac V. Fowler, Benjamin F.

V t?J ioucu litu s>0.? I clique were indignant, furious, savag-, and re solved upon resistance, sink or swim. After a hot light in committee, on th action of Mr. Isaac V. Fowler, our free soil Buffalo platform Poet master, the meeting a ourned in th midst of a small row. Nothing cam? of it. It ended in an explosion and pass d off in smok . The next mov. jn nt was by th ; D mocratic General Committee, the r gular organization ^ Resolutions wtr^ offered in comm ttee endors' Douglas, his bill an th administration, - dp to the hub, and arrangt m uts w re propo ^ j or calling a public democratic Meeting o- a pro grauime for the 16tk. The proposition u tin advocated by a w.mber of the lead ing members; but a furioua and terrible opposition sprang up among the free soilers of the Sen-let letter order. John Van Bureu mr?dero less than four sharp, crisp, t annic and withering speeches against Douglas, ' his Trimming for the l'residen cy, and his bill of abominations; and one Lucius Kobinson made I Ko or three ^pecehea con< iing the Prince to the handle. AftcT this violent and iiery debate, and a terrible scene of demf^cratic wrath anl ex citement, ?the resolutions in favor of the Nebras ka bill, in favor of D'juglas, in favor of the ad ministration as identified with Douglas and the ; bill, ani in favor of a public Tammany Ilall | meeting upon this programme, w?.Ti! carried by | a ksr'ro majority, us ?? have alrea'y shown. To arms! democrats, to arms ! A public meeting in Tammany Hall has been awanged accordingly, to come off on the 16th instant; and on this important occasion, as we have stated, Judge Douglas and other distin guished advocates of the bill, from Congress, are to be present, to illuminate the d^lnocracy upon the negro question, the Nebraska bill, and the constitution of the United States. It ia believed i hat the meeting will be ? mighty gathering of "the unter rifled" ? that it will place in line again the rank qnd tile of the true democracy of this democratic citadel of the North, and that it will result in driving out of the "happy fa mily," and back again to their dens, all tlA abolitionists and -free soilers of all parties, all factions, all stripes, all complexions ? Lloyd Garrison, TV. H. Seward, Lucy Stone, Fred. Douglass, the liev. Mrs. Antoinette L. Brown, all the Van Durens, all the Dixes, and all of the Scarlet order. That is what they ex pect to do. Democrats, wake up! ? for God1* sake, wake up ? lor the day of action is at hand! On the other side, John Van Buren is pluck to the backbone. He not only possesses pluck, but that indomitable energy, activity and perse verance which never quail in the presence of the* enemy, though there may be a si^perior force in front and certain destruction in the rear. The Prince is game to the chine. As intimated, he has therefore arranged his plans for anticipating the Nebraska meeting a day or two, in a grand anti-Nebraska democratic meeting of outsiders on the 14th or 15th ins t.; and at this assemblage John Van Buren, John A. Dix, John Cochrane, (who has been tit Washington, and has probably in his breeches pocket a fresh Scarlet letter of smypathy and support from the White House) and a host of others of the free soil Buffalo party, are to expound to the people the abomi f nations of the Nebraska bill, and the treachery I of Douglas, Cats, and other Presidential can didates anxious for ?. cluiuce ia 1856, as they did in 1648 against the Nebraska bill of that day. Democrats, rouse yourselves! for the enemy is in the Held ! These forthcoming democratic movements in thiB mighty metropolis, (the headquarters of half the commerce of the globe and of all the continental democracy,) Are important and sig nificant in the highest degree. The Doug las-Nebraska meeting on the 16th, and the anti-Dougias-free-soil-Scariet-letter-democratic anti-Nebraska meeting on the 14th or 15th, mean something of tremendous import to the universal democracy, the administration, the party, "manifest destiny," and for Union or disunion. Those two or three days will probably decide the immediate question, and I shape out the destinies of the President, the Cabinet, the democracy, the succession, and the fate of this prodigious republic, for the next twenty -five years. Yes, yes! negotiations have ended in Europe. We see there the grand pre liminaries commenced for such an earthquake as that old Continent has never felt before, not even in all the thundering career of Napoleon. And here, too, we are in for a moral and politi cal agitation which will shake this Union as with the throeB of an earthquake. We are in for it. Democrats, wake up? wake up! and ! spring to the rescue! Thus far wc have had no decisive popular move- I ment among the democracy upou this Nebraska j question. We have had several tame assemblages j ol an anti-Nebraska abolition stripe in the Ta- , i bernaclc, some scattered meetings of a mixed ! , character in New England and the West; but I Congress, the Cabinet, and the country, are j waiting for the thunders of Tammany Hall. I Wc should not be surprised if Old Tammany : on (he 16th were to clfect a mighty democratic coup iCftat in the expulsion of the whole pack of the Buffalo free soilers from the party, great and small, and in recalling again to the ancient wigwam the late discarded hard shells of the Stiiyvesant Institute, in full feather, head and tail up, drums beating and colors Hying. We cannot imagine any other issue to the meeting of the 16th. Wc arc in the midst of a mighty revolution. Let Old Tammany l?e heard. Let her speak! The Union and the constitution forever ! The Black Warrior axd tiie Cuban Actho- j ritihs ? Outrages upon our Commerce. ? We have already had occasion to speak of the serious > annoyances to which our steamers arc subjected by the Spanish authorities at Cuba, when stop ping at Havana on their way to or from Mobile and New Orlean-. They app ar to have a particular animosity against the Cr scent City, Captain Baxter, and nevir neglect any oppor tunity of exhibiting it towards her. On her last trip to New Orleans she was detained oi't ide the hnrbor in a most dang rous posi tion and on the most abeurl and groundless pretext. According to the rules of the port no vessel is allowed to enter the bar! or after the flag is hauled down from the Moro Castle, which stands at its entrance. This flag is hoisted every morning at sunrise and is taken down at sunset. Now, Captain Baxter inforir.s us that he pa sed the Moro Castle several minutes !> fore the appointed time, and that lie was in th>> act of passing the guard ship n they were hauling down the Hag. Whon the pilot observed it, he refu cd to protv - 1 any further, notwithstanding the r nvuiitranc*' of the captain, who a ur, d him that the nil of the port had been complK d with. As the captain, however, did not consid. r himself au thorised to do anything more, under the cir rnrr fcncrv. and a a v"rl:v!!n;i. or ev 1 a pr"> uuutu tiwuwo.i, wi tue pcit laws ia?Ucndcd I with a pen ty r ^ ^ thousand dollars, he an chored along' of the The pa8. sengers w< f prevented by the rules from going a ^orej aQ^ an communication with the land ? ^fohibited. The next morning at sunrise^ y were permitted to enter the harbor, af'^r r anning the risk to which vessels lying iu that part of the waters of the port are expo&ed. We have received lettera from oar own cor respondents in relation to the recent out rages committed on the Black Warrior by the same authorities, which will be found in another part of to-day's Herald. In addition to these, we have b en furnished with a copy of a letter from the agent of the line of steamers in Havana to the com pany in this city, in which the whole particu lars of this -flagrant outrage are given, from the time of the arrival of the vessel at Havana till her abandonment by the captain. We have already commented upon the gross violations of that comity which should exist between all maritime nations; but Spain seems not only to be lost to all sense of courtesy in this respect, but actually abets the conduct of her officials. The Spanish authorities make use of the slight est pretext to ffJMjftV our vessels and embarrass our commerMgflpi when the home government is applied JjFwBH redress, they arc so tardy about giving it that it is utterly ineffectual in putting a stop i(> the grievances complained of. In v iew of "flSene circumstances, we are iuform ed that one of tile agents of the proprietors of the Black Warrior left "this city yesterday for Washington, to lay the whole matter before our government. The case which he has to present is so clear and so ^strong that there can be no possible misunderstanding with regard to the course which should be taken. Immediate ac tion is necessary if they would prevent the oc currence, of similar outrages in future. Our relations with Cuba must be bo arranged that no opportunity will be given for Spanish offi cials to interfere with our commerce hereafter. Tin Mkxican AunioBrrats xm American Ship Owxkrs. ? Sktzthi or a Ban ? Imi'Iusonxxvt or bb Captain Messrs. Snow l( Burgess, of No. 73 South street, in this cijty, have reoeived two letter* from Captain O. Mossman, who lately commanded the brig from New York. Tlie first communication is dated at Barilla Island, February 7, and' reports tlie loss of the vessel in the breakers upon the coast of Coatzacoalcos, near Vera Cruz, Mexico, on the 29th of January. The captain left Campenchy Bank on the 26th of that month, and ex perienced very rough weather until the brig became unmanageable; when, after working in the breakers for hours, she was wrecked, and Captain Mossman was thrown amongst strangers, none of whom were ac quainted with the English language. On the second day following he wout to the office of the Consuletta at Min atitlan, and when there he was summarily arrested by the Captain of the l'ort, with another oilicer, and charged with the crime of going into the port of Coatzacoalcos instead of that of VeraCruz, as the former was not a port of entry. This seemed hard, when it is remembered that he was driven In by stress of weather. However, all re monstrance was in vain; aU offers of adjustment rejected, and Captain M. was made a prisoner of Mexico and sent off to jail. His second letter, dated February 7, mentions that he was just then going into the jail of Minatitlan ? that he did not know what sort of a pla?e it was; and he calls upon Messrs. Bnow Ac Burgess to remember him. We believe that the former have tent on an agent to Wash ington to represent 41<e case in the proper quarter, and we think it in worthy of serious consideration. I Anotlier Large Flrr-Low of Orer 900,000 Wortli of Property. Yesterday afternoon, about half-past t?a o'clock, a fire was discovered in the upper story of the immense storage warehouse of Mr. O. Merle, in Water ami Front streets. This warehouse embraces three large five story brick buildings In Water struet, No*. 289, 291, and 293, and runs through the entire block to Front street, taking in three large buildings on that tide also. The ire was discovered issuing from the roof on the Front street aide, having originated among some cotton bales In the upper story. The cause of the fire i? un known, but 1s suppsaed to be the work of an incendiary, inasmuch] as there was no fire used in the building any where, and no one at work in the portion of the ware house where it first broke out. Soase supposed that the fire was in a cotton bale when it was first stowed away there a few days since, and had been slumbering till yes terday, when it burst forth. The building was stored with several thousand barrels of flour and liquor, but principally with cotton bales. As soon a* the fire was discovered, the alarm was sounded, and a large portion of the fire department, with their entire ap paratus, hastened to the spot of the conflagration. But before the flames could be subdued the fire had extend ed through the upper story, from Front to Water street the grester part of the roofs of Nos. 291 and 293 Water, and 264 and 206 Front being burned off. The fire was limited to these building, the other range, Nos. 289 Water and 262 Front street, being separated from the burning part by a 42-inch wall, which was an effectual protection. When the fire, as we have stated, increased so much as to extend from one street to the other, it was feared that the whole warehouse would be consumed unless the fire was robbed of the combustible materials upon which it fed. It was consequently immediately ordered that the story below the burning one should be cleared of its con tents, and soon the firemen, police and lnborera were at work, pitching the cotton bales and flour barrels into the streets on both sidcB of the block. In a short time the loft was cleared of Its valuable contents, which had the desired effect of checking the progress of the flames. Before, however, all the cotton was thrown out of this story, the second from the roof, the fire had reached through and taken hold of some of the bales. The Bremen, however, now began to get the fire under their control, and sent their streams upon the burning piles with great effect. It was not till near six o'clock that the flames were wholly quenched. Fire wtien hid in a l>ale of cotton is very difficult to reach. It wan the case here; when the Humes were out it was necessary to play for a long time upon the smouldering bundles, thus almost drowning the whole building from the roof to the basement. It is impossible to state the precise amn.int of the I093. It was the general opinion, however, among those who were competent to judge, that the damage could not be less than sixty thousand dollars. The property destroyed was by lire and water and being pitched into the pools of mud in the ttreets, and was owned by various parties, who had stored it in this warehouse. The goods were l<(l>red at the risk of the owners, and nmong so many it was impossible to get the losses sus tained by each, or the names of the parties. Wo under stand, however, tlmt nil were insured in various compa nies in this city, Philadelphia, and Uostory The mud along Water street, in tho vicinity of the fire, \*is in some places over knee deep, and greatly re tarded the efforts of the firemen in laying their hose and drsggirg along their engines. We noticcd in many places where the hose, laying along the street for the distance of several lengths, were sunk in complete lakes of slush, and mud, aud mire. Notwithstanding all these drawbacks the firemen were active in their exertions, and worked manfully in confining the conflagration to the narrowest limit t ossible. HTnitue Affair*.

TT?E city inspectoe at woek. I THE DAY OF REFORM, 4c., Ac., 4c. We are glad to state, for the gratification of oar fellow- j | citizens, who have to long wailqsred. waded, and almost ?mothered in seas of filth and mud, that there U now hope of there being cleanliness in oar city once more. Ihe Board of Health, called upon to act by the impera tive voice of the people, have authorized tlio City Inspec tor, Mr. Thomas JC. Downing, to go to work and purify and cleanse the city. ThiB officer hag taken off his coat, rolled a p hU sleeves, and gone to work in real earnest , and judging from the appearance of thing* in his office yesterday we should think he had ''resolved to do or die." His assistants, Mr. Kichord Downing, Mr. Morton, and all his clerks, were all day yesterday as busy as b- es assorting and arranging tickets and papers for the commencement of the good work of purification this morning, should the weather permit. The modui operandi fixed upon by Mr. Downing, (who sayR lie is not only going to have the streets clean ed, but is going to have them cleaned honestly, every man engaged earning his money,) is to appoint an in spector for every ward, who shall, under instructions I 1'iom Mr. Downing, proceed to work at once engaging men and carts, and currying away the mud in their re spective wards. To prevent fraud in the performance of the work two tickets have been Issued ? the " inspector's ticket" and the "carlincn's ticket." Wheu the man starts with his load from the street he receives from the inspector, or his agent, the " inspector's ticket;" and wheu he arrives at the place of dumping his load another agent of the inspector takes away the " inspector's j ticket," (which is evidence of where the man got his j 1 ad,) and gives In return the "cartmon's ticket " I which th? man keeps as an evidence of work performed i and presents to the City Inspector when he draws his ! pay. The City Inspector and his assistants and clerks, ' as we have already paid, were., engaged yesterday in arranging theae tickets, (xopae bushels In quan tity,) for the various wards. Most of the different ward ?inspectors'' were also selected yesterday. These offices, according to thei resolution of the Board of Health, ore appointed by the Sarfltary Committee of each ward, Buhjoct to the approval of Mr. Downing. Yesterday morning most of the appointees presented themselves for confirmation to the City Inspector, bat several of them were rejected. During the day the following were appointed and confirmed : ? WarcU. Inspectors 2d Thomas Muloney. 4th Thomas W. Sheridan Oth Wm. Hotfmire. 7th Charles Heath. 8th Wm. Wainwright. 10th Wm. Spates. 12th Edward WitheveU. 14th JLauranee Kilo v. 15th E. S. Voorhica. 20th 7 J. T. Cowenhoven. 21st J. M. Ode 11. The others will perhapa be confirmed to-day- Those appointed yesterday met in the afternoon in the office of the City Inspector, and received instructions to go to work this morning if the weather was fit. All mad, gar bage, and filth of every kind, in every place and coruer, was ordered to be carried aw^y, and dumped into vowels provided at the docks by the Sanitary Committee of each 'Ward. The City Inspector, anxious to have the co-opera tion of the public in the performance of his herculean task, has issued the following: ? NOTICE TO THE ttTBLIC. !"he Hoard of Health liaving directed the City Inspector to take immediate measure* to cluan the street*, avenues, and pntlir places, and to cause the same to be kept in a cleanly condition until such time as the Common Council shall adopt a permanent and more perfect system of street cleaning thsn tho prerent. Therefore the citizens generally are requested to oe-op cratc with this department in carrying the same into elfeut, by cleaning: and keeping clean the gutters in front of their premises, thereby causing the drainage of tho filth now ob structing the gutters, and give free package for the water, Ac., Ac. It is hoped that our citizens ?Will yield a prompt and cheer ful compliance with this request, in order that the work of removal of dirt, Ac., may he carried on in the moat eDectiye manner. Carts will be furnished as speedily as pus si tie fur tbe removal of garbage, coal ashes, Ao., aud It is also requested that citizens will refrain from casting the same into tbe street, and keep all re?use, Ac., in suitable vessels until Wto carts shall call lor tbe aaine. THOMAS K. DOWNING, City Inspector. City Inspector's Department, New York, March a, ISM. This looks like work. It is systematic ? und to-day we may expcct to see the mud fly if the sun shines. It is hardly neoossary for us to add, that we are confident our citizens will heartily respond to the call of Mr. Downing, and do all in their power io assist him iu conferring upon his mud hurled city the long prayed for boon of clean iness and deccncy. Meeting of the Street Committee. The committee which was Appointed at the last meet ing in the Pank to take into consideration the present filthy condition .ot our streets, met at the Astor Rouse yesterday, at 12 o'clock. All the members were not present, and it was therefore decided that no definite action should be taken on the subject for which they as sembled till all could be brought together. Mr. Hiddle brook presided, and Mr. Douglass Leffingwell officiated as Secretary, assisted by Mr. White. A committee of five, consisting of the following gentlemen, was appointed to , draw up an address to the public : ? George N. Middle | brook, ?. N. Andrews, August In Snow, Douglass Leffing well, and J. Oakley Walls. The next meeting of the com mittee will be held at 4 o'clock P. M., on Monday, at the I Astor House. City Intelligence. Motsoroi/kiical Observations. ? We are in a transition state ? politically and meteorologically. The Nebraska bill at Washington is not producing more extraordinary changes among the politicians, than is the approach of the sun to the line, in the eccentricities of the clerk of the weather. Were it not an exhausted subject, we should dilate upon the mud. Suffice it to say, that Mr. White, by the rainy weather of the last two days, has been done brown, for the streets continue as beautifully black as eYer. We find some relief, however, in walking Broadway, in our meteorological observations on a line with the foot walks. It is a frightful subject for specu lation to a philoMfhical mind, to mark the variety of large feet and litTO feet, thick ankles and delicate little ankles, dirty stockings nnd clean white stockings that are mingled in the passing throng. Here comes a tall feminine, with the step of a grena dier; not caring to emulate the Bloomers, how ever, she walks with her garments trailing; and a very beautiful spectacle they present. Behind har we see a delicate, clean-limbed little Arabian, in her finished proportions; her gaiters are fitted to her foot most beautifully; her ankle, covered with the whitest of white stockings, is artistically perfect. She knows it ? nnd partly to save her clean skirts, lier clean white stock ings, nnd her exquisitely fitting gaiters from a contact W|th the mud, and partly from a little excusable vanity ?she displays just enough of her pedal extremities to turn the eyes of every old bachelor to the ground. In such horizontal observations as these upon the state of the weather, wo inay see enough of the beautiful in na ture and the tasteful in nrt to Induce us almost to wish that the rain and the mud may last for at least a week longer. Our observations on Broadway yesterday, in the absence of Mr. White and the friendly sons of bt. Patrick, with their shovels and carts, were mainly of the character thus suggested. Our old friend Hudibras says: ? ?'Ah me! what perils do environ, The man that meddles with cold irongl' And one would think that our City Fathers had been impressed with this warning of Hudibras, in refraining from touching a shovel or a hoe for the relief of the streets. And nence, we have been compelled to fall bacn upon first principles, in an appeal to the people. Let us liojie that scon the work will be done, when we shall be able to repeat, with the old Mississippi negro ? " l ay down de sbobel and de hoe, Hang up de fiddle and dfebuw, 1 or anre is no more mud be cleaned off de streets, 'Cause it's gone where de mud ought to go." FaYOBB from the Ciiarita bix. ? A fur day s ago we no ticed the distressed situation of a Mrs. Hagan, residing ft No. 72 Charlton street, caused by tho loss of soiim fl60, stolen from her pocket In an omnibus by a female pickpocket. Since that time several persons have con tributed n few dollars to the wants of this poor woman.

He began, by saying that ; be would embrace the opportunity of recommending ' them to [ uYsue certain modes of study. He impressed' ' on tliem the necessity of cultivating to a further extent | the ear, as a means of detecting lisease, especially la . ( diseases of the chest and heart. The Doctor dwelt par ticularly on the origin and treatment of those curious and almoRt inscrutiUe diseases of tho beart which entire ly elude tie physician's skill. He branched off into a. description of what should be, in his opinion, the mode of aociul intercourse between the physician and patient. He recommended that the most scrupulous integrity should be followed in all such intercourse; and closed by impressing u}?n his hearers the necessity of purity of life as well as feeling, to every aspirant for medical honors. At the conclusion of the address, tho Chancellor pro nounced the benediction. The following is a list of the members of tho Faculty:? Rev. ltaac Ferris, D. I)., Chancellor of the University.

The Hippocrstic o.itli was then administered by the President, and the diploinns were conferred. The Fukinnr then proceeded to deliver the annual address. He commenced by impressing upon tlio young men before him, who v. ere about to enter unon the prac tice of one of the most important and liberal professions, a proper sense of the dignity and responsibility of their calling. He repudiated in sti ong terms the idea tiiat the medical profession had anything in common with merely mercerinry pursuits. They wen- not to think that medi cal advice was like an article of merchandise only, but appealed to them to look higher and further. He said that the relief of physical hulfcring alone did not com prise the whole of a physician's duty. He should be pro pared to administer at times comfort to the soul. Re ligious advice coming from a layman might have at time* more influence than it uttered by a clergyman, lie spoke at some length of the importance of laying a thorough preliminary education as the basis of a professional ca reer. He concluded by paying a high compliment to the graduating c lass, which he said was one of the beet, If not the best, he had known. The address whs frequently interrupted by applause. At its conclusion the benediction was pronounced by i>r. Knox, and the audience separated. Knot, No. 363 Broadway, hna the World'* Fair nodal for daguerrcoty f "*?
