When Governor Brown, of itissi.isippi, received the Senatorial nomination, he wai forthwith telegraphed that the Havana Consulate was at his dispo sal. But the Governor could not bo bribed to got out of the way and give Jefferson Davis a chance to be elected Senator in his place. Now Jake Thompson is a candidate for the place In the Senate which will be made vacant by the expiration of Mr. Adams's term, and at oace he is written to and begged to take the aforesaid Cnnsultte and get out of Davis's way. He, however, is as inde pendent as Governor Brown, and poor Jeff, must continue to hold on to the War Department, or retire to the Bhaies of private life. As the administration cannot trade off the consulate for a place in the Senate, perhaps they might be induced to sell It to some enterprising man for cash. Will the ,?k, Union inform us? The question of removing the injnnction of secresy from the debates and correspondence on the Gadsden treaty, is exciting the greatest feeling amongst Senators. Those who desire the Injuction to be removed, deolare \ epenly that the administration dare not permit it. There has been no reiteration of tho denial that Judge I Donglas was refused a petty appointment for a political iriend under tlte Nebraska bill. Why does not the admi nistration get Judge Douglas to deny that the fact is not as we stated. We understand that Mr. Westbrook's nomination to the District Attorneyship, was sent to the Senate to-day. That petition, with eighty odd signatures, together with <Mr. Tweed's personal exertions, carried the day. THI GADSDEN TBEATY CONBPKMATBB ? MINISTER TO CHILI ? THE HOT WBATHBR.

He said the committee had been examining into this question, and had before them a great mass of testimony, together with the report of the CommisMoners appointed by the President, who a -it *t Springfield for three month*, last year.

An affray took placo last night, at the St. Nicholas Hotel, between two sporting gentlemen named White and Connor, the latter known by his friends as 'Little Arthur." It appears they had Just returned fr am the races, and some dispute arose between thcrj about another person and a female. White took up the quar rel in behalf of the absent friend, and Connor called him a thief. The matter now became personal, and high words passed between them. Knives were drawn, and a clinek took place. Whito received a wound in the arm, and Conner a stab in the abdomen, which it is said will prove fatal. The affray produced a great excitement in the hotel. The police were called in, and Mr. White was taktn into custody and couveyed to the Eighth ward police station. HlSKtxa OF A 0IMAMBOAT IN the North River. ? On Thursday afternoon, a little after 3 o'clock, the old uteomboat Buffalo sank at the fodt of Robinson street, N. R., with upward of 500 German emigrants ? men, women and children? on their way to the West, on board. Fortunately no lives were lost. It seems that the steamer Hero, owned by Capt. Hancock, and char tered by Wolf & RiokmiUer, emigrant agents, broke her crank while on her trip to Albany on Tuesday night with a load of emigrants, and on her return to this city yesterday rooming, the steamer Buffalo, owned by the name persons, was put on in her place, and commenced taking on board those booked and waiting passage. No sooner had these, to the number of between five and six hundred, got on board with their baggage, than the waUr began rushing into the portholes forward of the boiler, which had been carelessly left open, and in less than ten minutes tne boat keeled over and sank, no thing but the upper deck, machinery, be., remaining in sight. The emigrants, alter much hard labor, succeeded in gett:ng nli their lugg^go ashore again, although in a , greatly damaged condition. Captain Hancock imrnedi ! a t el j procured the steamer Nimrod. transferred the passengers. baggage, &c., on board of her, and immedi ately started far Albany. Had the Buffalo reached the middle of the river, ana then met with a similar accident, the loss of Ufo would undoubtedly have been very great. Fiat ? Trophy Strkkt ?About two o'clock yesterday morning n Ore broke out in the building No. 160 Crosby street. The npper part was occupied by Mr. Dearman as a can ing> maker's shop, and the lower part as a livery stable, by James McMann. Two horset and a cow were burned. All the tools belonging to the carriage shop w?re consumed. The house adjoining, occupied by seve ral families, wae slightly injured on tne roo .

The Poiioe Commission* re net yesterday at half putt OB* o'clock, frr the purpose of trying mnplaint* agaiuHt numbers of tfoe Police Department for tbe infraction of tbe rules and regulations. Isaac B. Ekaats, Eleventh ward, Daniel & Steal, Fifth ward, Ezra Beach, Eighth ward, and Willuraa Petersen, I leventh ward, were' placed on trial for being: coaoernetl in calling a public meeting, at which reQeclftona were made upon the Police Commissioner*, and aUo for pub lishing an improper advertisement In the NVw York Heraid, respecting a regulation of the Commissioners re garding the uniform. Peterson waa tried for having em ployed a person to erect the stand in the Park. Tlie charge against the whole of them waa for contact unbecoming policemen. The specification against Peterson waa That the said Peterson on or about the 21th of Jan* ult., employed John Gardener to ereot a stand in the Park for the use of a public meeting to protest against the action of the Commissioners of Police in imposing an expensive and fantastical uniform, thereby creating insubordination among and Inciting to a violation of the discipline of tho police department. The specification against Skaata was : ? That the said Skaats on the 27th June nit., acted as Secretary at a meeting of the policemen, when the Commissioners of Police were held up to ridicule and contempt, and did cause to be published in the public newspapers, under his own name, a notice for the public meeting to take into corsideration tbe imposing an expensive and fantastical uniform by the Commissioners of Polioe, thereby inciting member* of the department to insubordination, and in violation of the discipline of the department. Tbe specification against Beech was the same, varying it that he was Chairman against Steel, the same as that of Skaats. Mr. Pcbaffer. of the New York bar, stated he attended upon behalf of the men charged. The affidavit of Robert Vf. Bowyer was then read, in which the advertisement. In the Nsw Yobk Herald was embodied, calling a meeting of the citisens and police in the Park, on Thursday last, at 5 o'clock. Mr Schafler then stated ho appeared for the purpose of raising the objection, that the facte set forth in the affidavit do not show a vio ation of the rules of the de partment. Seciion 30 is the most comprehensive. Judge Bee be? It does not come under that section. Mr. frcbafTer ? The charge involves no neglect of duty. The caU, though a violation of taste, only amounts to an error in tbe right use of language ? in coiling tbe uniform fantastical; but so calling it does not * mount to a viola tion of the rules and regulations of the Police Depart ment. A sworn statement, made by Skaats, was then put in, In relation to the charge of being connected with the meeting in Mililary Hall, relative to the uniform of the Police Department, I attended the meeting in con sequence of a notice which was sent to the station house, inviting the platoon off duty to attend, for the purpose of complaining te the Commissioners of Polite in rela tion to the uniform. Policeman Ezra C. Bench was called to the chair, and myself and Daniel P. Steele, of the Fifth district, were appointed secretaries. A com mission of five was appointed to call a meeting In the Park. One of the committee asked me to append tbe notice of the proceedings in the Park to the proceedings of the meeting at Military Hall, and I did do so; I do not know who wrote the notice, and I would rather not state who gave it to me, or who composed the committee; I disclaim in tending to offer any disrespect te tbe Commissioners, nor would I have signed the advertisement If I haa carefully read it at the time. He also made a statement that he toad put the name of Beach and that of Steele to it without consulting i them. Beach and Steele both put in sworn statements deny ing that their names were put to the advertisement by their authority, and that they would nbt have con sented had they known the disrespectful phraseology in whieh it was couched. In other respects the affidavits were the same as that of Skaats. Mr. Schaffer then said he felt It due to the men to state that three members of the Police Department had called upon him a few days back, requesting he would ex* mine into the law, and ho had tola them that they could not resist the orders ol' the I'ollce Commissioner" a* to the uniform and drill, and t h it he had suggested that some of the best men of the body should meet to<etter and lay any grievance they felt thev had before the Commis sioners. They stated that owing to tho many expense* they were put to by the high prise of provisions, their pay was inadequate to moet the demand made on them. That he might have been misunderstood. The advice was they should have a private moetlng. He did not think it was the intention of Mr. Skaats to do anything insulting to the Commissioners, or that he would wil lingly offend. Tne affidavit of John Gardener was then put in, in which he stated tliat he was employed by Peterson to erect the stage in the Park, and that he looked to him and to him only for payment. Peterson said? I was appointed by the committee to employ Gardener to erect the stage, and I did so; I did not know in what language the call of the meeting was couched ; I understood it wis principally to have a meet ing to let the public know the right in rogard to the uni form, and that the order was for the men to get it forth with. The Mayor ? To let the publie know? Peterson then repeated the words, and continued? The police were desirous of having their salary increased to meet their expenses. By the Major, (showing a posting bill) ? I did not know of tho posting bills. The Mayor ? Tliey were all over the city. [Mr. ScH offer, who seemed to have a *et of client* who were most desirous of speaking for themselves, acted as moderator throughout, and appeared to have rather a difficult tisk ] Mr.Schaffor? I would suggest, even if Mr. Peterson did know of the handbills, I do not And any rale to which he would be amenable. If be knew of the handbill, it was, at the most, bad tar-te. My advico was to get a meeting of the judicious members of the body respectfully to con fer with the Commissioners. Even taking Peterson's statement, it could not be intended to concur in any In tended slight to the Commissioners. Judge Beebe? Myself and the other commissioners would be always moat willing and ready to confer with any members of the Police Department, upon anything which they could imagine to be a grievance, or which thev could consider pressed upon them. The Mayor ? And no one knows this better than officer Peterson. Be has been with me at all times and all hours, and I have listened to all he desired to say. Judge Be? be? We desire tho utmost confidence and cordiality to be established between ns and the members of the department, and should be ever ready to meet them and their friends, and as far as was consistent with our duties to the city, should desire to affotd thorn all the privileges in our power. The Commissioners are the friends of tlie department, and wish to be looked up to by the men in that character; but rules and refutations must be Imposed; it is for the benefit of the men as well as for the city in general. I, for one, ain willing to be lieve the stafpaent* of the men, acd that they did not mean an insult. It was ungenerous towards tne Com missioners. Complaints have been made as regards the drilling. This Ik a new thing with them. It is not that they are dlaiatlsflod with being dri led, bat that it takes up so much of their time. But this reason will c ease wcet they become ["utect. The necessity for this fre quent attendance will not exist. There ii not a man in the department bnt whoso welfare the Commissioners are desirous of promoting. I am personally known to six or Siren hundred of tne men. and f certainly could have no desire to oppress them. The office is one en tirely honorary, and most ouorous in its re.iuitumeir s, m*4 difficult. A dissection as to punishment in vetted in tfi? Commissioners, and when thin is so it too often tfn e rates dissatisfaction and ill ieeling; but when the pun ishment is defined the office of the judge U o.ily to pro nounce the law. When any rule operates a* a h*'d?hip upon the men, that rule, 1 tun assured, the Commission ers would amend, if consistent with the effic:ojcy <md discipline of the fore. The master In yspee.' to * he uniiorm has been wholly misapprehended oy the men Tie cesire to uniform the men vjhs for tUUr o?u sa.oty. An Insignia of t fflce carries with it a moral p?wer a id acts as a protection. When in a difficulty t'i?y can tnen act Willi tenfold po*er Wiih the win who hou??Wy doet. and desirosto dohisd lty there is no oh)* -tion to the uniform. It is' I be idle an t skulking who dread the distinguishing mark. Two vears ago. when the polioe were marshalled, one would attend out at the elbowi. ar other with his trousers turned up, and others with shoes down at heel, exciting by their heterogeneous ap C-srance the smile of the foreigner. The oomplimeat tely pcid to the police of the eity in my hearing, by a foreigner, is ene they now deserve, snd one which I was proud to hear?" fhat the police of this city weru as 9ne a body of men as any to be found (n the world." Is it not owing to their nnlforrultr of appearance? When the National Guards parade in tVie Park, hundreds come to see them. It is their discipline snd appearance which attract the admiration of their felioTefti/ens. The uni form is no baige of servility. It is an honorable and distinguishing mark, and if anything a mark of Inde pendence. The Kecorder. ? The proceedings which we are nailed on to investigate is of a rery grave character# It is cltnr tie regulations have not " been fvirly looked at, nor do thr m? n ?eem rightly to understand the principle upon which the prociedinR* of the Commissioner* .ire con ducted. The object of the Commissioners is to elevate the department in character and consequence. In order that the g?nernl community may have confidence in them. The idea secnn to be prevalent among the men that light rules would lie sufficient. The department holds in security the life nnd property of the citizens, and the object of the lan is to ensure that security, and therefore the men should be carefully selected, in order to entitle them to that confldonco which their office im pores. That which has given rise to the present ul?a gr?eai>Vs Is the prormilgaiing rules repeoting uniforms, compelling them to wnar a uniform by which they can be rttogniredas well by their brother officers as by the citizens. The uniform is, in /act. a badge of honor ? t he symbol of authority. There is nothing fantastical iu the dress proposert ? it it simple and elegant. It haptens to be a uniform. and hence the objection. Tho caps hav proved effective, and in some case* have preserved life, hut it was not Intended the men i should w*?r the cumbersome caps only when on ipeela dutv. a* at fires So it is not intended that tb*- cape shall tlrau be worn; but if a c.ipe is worn then it eball be of a particular character.

Yesterday the interesting ceremony of consecrating the Building known as Christ's Protestant Episcopal Church, situated in Eighteenth Btreet, Mar Fifth avenue, took place in the presence of several bishops and clergy men. The ceremonies of the day commenced with a volunta ry on the organ. A procession, of Bishops Wainwright, of New York; Bit-hop Upfoid, of Indiana; Bishop Potter, of Pennsylva nia, snd a number of clergymen, including the rector of the church, followed by the trustees, then entered the middle aisle, and proceeded up tbe centre of the edifice to the oliAnct-l. The Morning Service of the Episcopal form of worship was then read by the several clergymen present. The first IceBon for the day was read by the Rev. Mr. Head, and the second one by the Rev. Mr. Hslsey, of Sing Sing. Previous to the commencement of the IJttany, the second and third verses of the twenty- first selection of Psalms were sung by the choir as follows: ? I'll wash my hands in Innocence, And round thy altar ge, Pour the glad hymn of triumph there, And thence thy wonders show. My thanks I'll publish there, and tell How thy renown excels; That sest affords me moat delight In which thine honor dwells. The pattor of the church, the Rev. Charlbs Halsey, then i.fttf a paper, whioh went on to state that tbe church had been incorporated sixty years ago? in the year 1784. It was first built in Ann street, in the year 1704, aDd was afterwards removed to Anthony street, in 1828, ? here the bonding was burnod down in 1847, but tvas subsequently rebuilt in 1848. In 1854 ? the present year? the church was removed from its former location to its present ci*e in Eighteenth street, near Fifth avenue, where dlvl&e service would be continued every Sunday at the usual hours. There was one person then present, mid the speaker, named Mrs. Bfchert, who was present at the consecration ot the church when llrst incorporated, sixty ye?r? ago, w <? was pr<' ? ut at the consecrations in the years 1HXH a&<> H48. That aged lady was there pre sent, be was glad to Ha^, enjoying good health, and all her facultir * intact. The "9th P&alm was then sung by the choir and con gregation, of which >e append the fo lowiug stanzas : ? With one oonaent let all the earth To GoJ their cheerful voices raise, OlftC homaf r- pay with awful mirth, Avid siuy before him songs of praise. Oh, enter, then, his temple gate, Thence to lils courts devoutly press; And still ycur grateful hymns repeat, And atiil his name with praises bless. Bishop Pontes then a? cended the pulpit and preached the s? rtnon on the occasion. He toefc for hi* Uvt the lath verse uf the 11th chapter of St. John? '?

A member of the First ward police, iiamtii Frank Shelby, was arrestee! yesterday, to answer the charge of seducing and having adulter ous connection with his own step-daughter, a beau tiful young lirl about fourteen years of age. It ap pears that Mr. Shelby and his wife separated some months ago. Mr. Shelby charged Mrs. Shelby with improper oandtaet, and she accused him of wishing to ruin her daughter by a former husband. About the time she left him, he applied for letters of guardtoiifhip, and Mrs. Shelby opposed the appli cation. The Court was convinced that Shelby would tot be a proper guardian, and refused to ap point hiin. Immediately afterward the girl was missing. Shelby denied all knowledge of her whereabouts. Mrs. Shelby was almost distracted, and made every possible eff rt to On I her child, but all in vain. Snc applied to officers, but they would not or could not do anything. She appealed to Mayor Snelbaker, to have the matter investigated, but lie ticclined doing anything until some proof could be found of Mr. Shelby's agency in ui'ilueting the girl, or the girl conld be produced. Shelby had acknowledged to his wifo that he knew where the girl was, and hsd threatened that he would have a still .vounger stepdaughter, whom Mrs. Shelby bad under her charge. Despairing of flnd ii c her eldest daughter, and alarmed lest she should lose the other, Mrs. Shelby lelt the city, and took her youngest child, named Mary, to her relatives for safety. Since Mary, who is about twelve years of been there, letters have been sent to her pstiiig her to run away. Soon after Mrs. Shelby left the city her missing daughter, whose name is ,\nguste, made her appearance In town, declaring th.'t ?lic bad been to some school in the country. Mil has since been hoarding at the same house with Mi. Shelby, corner of Filth street and Broadway. On last Tuesday evening Mrs. Shelby returned to t incinnati, and taking legal advice, had her husband arrested. Upon the arrest being effected by Marshal Uuffin, the girl made a full confession, Implicating Mr. Shelby In conduct which our statute declares to be iiiCC6t. Mr. Shelby, in default of $1,000 bail, was committed to the ctlls of tho watch house. Mrs. Shelby was foimerly an actress of some repute, and is a keen, intelligent woman. Mr. Shelby has been considered a quiet, faithful officer, and has been con sidered a worthy member of the 1. O. of O. F. ? t'in cinnuii Columbian, June 2!). fb?n WrnsKKr. ?

Daring the wwk several running matches have been made, two of which arc to come- off on the Gth of Joly; one between the Maid of Orleans and the horse C'omproaiKe, for $1,600, estcb weights; the other between Ellen Batsman and Little Arthur, for $1,000. 'There will aiso be rumning on the Fourth of July. Apropos of running against time. It is under stood that Sir. Toler. the gentleman who tua died Fashion in ber great raw with Boston, has offered a wager of twotve thousand dollars against tea thou sand dollars, that the time made by Fashion on that occasion (7:32fc ? 7:45) caunot be beat by any horse now on the turf, carrying New York weights. Eclipse's saddle is thought to be still safe, as there is no apparent disposition to accept the cha lenge by any parties. Until her time is beaten, with her weights up, Fashion must be considered as standing at the head of the American turf. Who wants the saddle ? But one race came off yesterday. It was two mile heats for three year olds, for which there were four entries, viz.:? ch. c. Bam 1 .etcher, by Wagner, dam by Medoc; g. c. Little Arthur, by Glenooe.dam Blue Bonnets; Ur. Whitten's ch. f. by imported Glencoe, dam by Medoc; and Mr. Dilahunt's ch. c. Henry, by imported Olencoe, dam by Medoc. The last named did not start. Bam Letcher, although a Wagner, bears a strong resemblance to the Glencoe family, and looks very much like Garret Davis. He is, however, a little grosser in form. He is held in high estimation as a utile horse, and yesterday proved himself a capital tiro mile nag. Although beaten on Tuesday in his race with Garret Davis and Wild Irishman, he redeemed himself nobly on this occa sion. Little Aithur was the favorite at large odds. He is considered to be a first rate horse at mile heats. He ran lately at Baltimore, whore he was so unfortunate as to fall during the race, and was beat' en. From the manner in which his friends backed | him yesterday they felt very confident of his suc cess. He was again unfortunate?iri his race yester day, one of the stirrups of his saddle having broken in the early part ol' the first heat. His friends attri bute his defeat to that cause. Mr. Whitten's ch. filly that ran &o finely in the race with Henry on rues day, mile heats, did not reach up to public expecta tion as a two mile nag. Bbe made a poor ran, and was distanced in the lust heat, the heavy traok tell ing sadly against her. First Htat. ? TJie chestnut Ally won the pole, Bam Lctc-her the second place, Arthur outside. They went off nicely together, and were in a heap on the upper torn. When next seen, emerging from behind the trees, which obscured them for an instant, the "My was leading Arthur about a length, Sam two or three lengths behind. They kept abont so down the back stretch, until, passing the Mansion House, Bam began to close on Arthur, and ou the lower turn they were all pretty dm togetaer. They came up the home stretch vigorously, and pitsiwd the judges' stand at a rapid rate, the Iilly lint, Sam 1 etcher second, and Little Arthur third, with his stirrup leather broken, lime or nral ml!e Arthur closed on the ffpper turn, his rider sitting as easily aa if the accident had not occurred. As the filly entered on the back stretch B?iin challenged and passed her; Little Arthur then followed suit, and made a brush for Sam, running up and lapping him. The race now became very exciting. Around the lowe/turn Bam tried to shake tiie little t'elloiv off, but he elung to him most pertinaciously. A desperate struggle was maintained up the home stretch to the judges' stand, when it was discovered that Sam was a neck in advance, the backers of the little gray feeling sanguine of his success until the horses were under the string. Time of lost mile two minutes, and of the heat 3:58. Second Heat ? Notwithstanding the severity of the lost heat, all the horses came up well to the post. Little Arthur particularly, bis friends still in nigh hopes of the result. Sam 1 .etcher, tibwever, had got to be the favorite, anil odds were given on him. They got off well, the filly leading as before, and away they went, Sam Letcher slipping on the torn and falling behind. Arthur now cut out the running, an<! going up to the iilly passed her and i led down the back stretch, and in front of the Man- . sioa House was three lengths ahead, Bam Letcher | about the same distance behind the filly. When they had reached the lower turn, Bam was discover ed to be closing up rapidly; he soon cut down the filly, and reached to within a length of Arthur. The gray came to the score first in 1:57, Bam next, and the iillv a couple of engths behind him. On the next mile Sam made several ineffectual attempts to reach Arthur, but the little gray still Kept the lead. Down the back stretch and around the lower turn the exciting struggle was continued, which proved too much for the gray, as. coming up the home stretch, Bam made another brush, going in front, and winning the h?at by a length. The filly | was distanced, having relinquished the contest on the back stretch. Time of the .last mile 1:594, and of the beat 3:56i. i The following is a summary of the race:? National Course?
