The mo.-t vigorous movements regarding the Fenian Kituaiion reported yesterday are the movements of the '?neutral" authorities. General Sweeny and Colonel Mnhnn were arrested at the Tremont House in St. AI trans, on a warrant issued by the civil authority under orders from Attorney General ftp,red. General Spear and the other prominent leaders in the same neighborhood managed to evade the officer charged with the arrest and they are still at large. Gen oril Murphy, General Hoflerman. Colonel Rllcy, Colonel E .son and seven other prominent officers of the Fenian army were subsequently arrested at Malone. Colonel Robert , the ('resident of the Fenian Brother hood, was arrested iu this city, and refused to give bail, wlneli was tendered him in tiny amount. He was sub sequently released on his own recognizance. General Meade has prohibited the transportation of Fenian? tovards the border over any of the railways. The revenue cutters on I-tike Michigan have beon turned over to the military authorities, lor the stricter enforcement of neutrality. General l.ynch Issued orders yesterday to all the Fenlaiu under his command in Duffiilo to retu-n to their lmmes. General O'Neill, in an addrcsa to tbew, advised them to return peacefully and orderly. General Murphy, when arrested, was allowed two hours to inform the men o( the situation of afThlrs. and advise them to return to their homes. Many have applied for transportation. Notwithstanding the drawback occasioned by the ar rest of the principal I adera, the column which started from M Albans on Wednesday kept steadily on the inarch, and yesterday mnrntng crossed the border two the.i -and strong, and unfurled the green flag once more ou British noli. General Spear commanded the column, end addressed a tew words of encouragement to them before they crossed. I hey are well supplied with pro Vision?, and expect heavy reinforcements as soon as their comrades are notified of their movement?. The Canad an situation la In tta u quo. Troops ar? continually on the move, and huge gunboats and frlga'ca are straying about undecided as to tbelr proper position. The Provincial Parliament convenes to-day, and It is presumed that the first action of the session will be to suspend the writ of habeas corpus. The important arrests made among their leaders caused t-on adorable depr ss on among the Fenians In tills city, but recruiting continue 1 as lively as before, and the tibial number of troops was forwarded to the front. CONG&ESS. The seuate yesterday, after the consideration of a few bids and resolution? of an individual imrre-t only, took up the reconstruction revolutions, the p 'tiding question being on the sub< tllote ofti re l hv Mr. Williams for the amendment to the apportionment section. Mr. Davis, of Kentucky, o-rupied the floor in oppos.Uon to the resolution* until the adjournment, which took place with out action on the amendment In the House the ibtmduc.twm of a joint resolution authorizing the adjournment of Congress on the 2Sth of June was objected to, and the 8p"ukcr decided that It Wit? not privlte ed, as th-ra was busbies? beforo the House. The b II authorizing tho Heor tary of the Navy to acr pt I .cogue Island, In the I?c aware river, for nsval purposes was pnswd. A sharp encounter of the wits" of Mr. Raymond and Mr. I,o Blond ensued during the discussion of tho question, on the former geatloaMn'H peculiarity of apcaklug one way and voting another. The concurrent resolution providing for the adjournment of Congress was then offer d, a? there was no bn?lne? before the House The resolution wa? passed, and then a motion to reconsider was carr cd by ten majority, no quorum voting. This leaves a point for the Home to deride which will come up as unlimslu d husltu as to day. THE CITY. Adair? at the new Qoarnutlue station at Seguln'e Point are unchanged.

The tas) is still on. The case of James Riley, who has charged Jaines Hughes with having dofrauded btm of sevou hundred and fifty dollars bounty money, was to have come up again lor further examination on yesterday, before Com missioner B 'its, but It was adjourned to n future day, in .he absence of witnesses.

The papers are almost barren of news. The Governor has given order* that all broken package# of go ids must be inspected by an officer of tho customs bo'oro tho drawback w'.lt be allowed on their exportation. The Kingston Journal of the lflth of May says:?' The Clergy bill will expire in a short time, and it is a subject for scrtnn.i consideration whether it ought to be re enact al." From the Bahamas our advices are iluted at Na- san, N. P., to (he 23d of May. The Colonial Parliament had been dissolved. The other news Is of on entirely local character. The United Mates District Court of Virginia, at Rich mond, adjourned yesterday until tho second Tuesday in October next, as ordered by the Judge the day before. Frederick Hniylli, the Governor elect of New Hamp ahlre, was inaugurated yesterday at Concord. Nearly all the militia of the Mat ? were present on |?rad ? In honor of the o caaion. Twenty six members of the n?w Houre of Assembly in Now Brunswick are in favor or confederation, only six being against it. There are still nine members to he elected, most of wliura it is supposed will be confedera tion lata. The Yale College regatta came oil on Wednesday, and was largely attended. The (Dyuna won the shell race over tire Varans, defeating the litter rather badly, as -he had the inside track. The time made was twenlv-one ?i coeds hotter than was ever made before in ihut harbor.

Nmtssity op Fireproof Urn 'nuh.?The Legtalnture Is proverbial for the facility with which L make* laws lo settle or unsettle every poKsihle qneaH?n affecting the Interests of the ei.izeu* of New York. Statutes regulating th"' terms upon which men -luill drink and dealer* shall vend liquors, and how dumb animals shall be (rented and how tenement house* ahull be kept in order and ??went cleans?<b?all very good thing1 in their way?run be rnn through tho Legislature vdtoont any difficulty. In view of thin fact there ought to he no ohntaele to punning a law requiring all new buildings to bo made fireproof, as far as possible. We have had some ti rrlhlc instances within the pas' five or six months of wholesale destruction of property from the want of some such pro vision. Whole blocks have been swept away in an incredibly short space of time, where one fireproof building would have arrested the progress of the eonlagratlon. The Fxelse law. the law for the prevention of cruelty to animals, the law creating a Board of Health may be very useful when reasona bly carried out} but there can be more good effected by the enactment of a statute which will protect this city against destruction by fire than by any of the utorosaid liifb Why cannot our houses be constructed upon the principle of the buildings in Paris, for instance! There 1# seldom a destructive conflagration th re. The fiercest fire ran-ly spretvds beyond one house. If we had a similar system here we would have very little need tor a largo and expi ii?ive tire department, the loss of property would tie (omparatively small, and the rates of ini-umnce. which aro now exorbitant, would reach a proper level. This is a subject upon which our next Legis lature might more profitably expend a gor?d deal of its attention than upon the present Im practicable Excise law and many other m ?as nres upon which a great deal of time haa been loat and very few good remUta rgftlixed* The PrMldcBl'i PrMltBtlUn-Brllbk *ad Aaierledd Neutrality. President Johnson's proclamation to preveni any "unlawful expodition and enterprlso from the territory and jurisdiction of the United States, and to maintain the public peace as well as the national honor and enlorce obe dience and respect to the laws of the United States," which is aimed at the Fenian move ment on Canada, has created no little exoite ment This action of the President is com mented upon very freely by all classes, some condemning and others approving it, while those opposed to the administration gladly seise the opportunity, without any regard to the principle Involved, to condemn Mr. John son. The President undoubtedly was placed In an unfortunate position with regard to the Fenian movement. On one hand it was bis duty to?ee that the laws be enforced and that the honor of the United States be preserved: on the other hand be could not ignore that public sentiment which runs against England without endanger ing bis popularity. There are few people in this great and free republic who do not sympa thize with the movement on account of the bad faith of England during our civil war. We cannot forget the destruction of our commerce by the rebel pirates which were sent out of British waters. The -havoo made by the Alabama and Shenandoah is fresh in our minds, and we feel the effects of it yet in our reduced mercantile marine. The deeds of those land pirates who crossed over from Canada to Si Albans and of the hotel incendiaries, as well as the other pirati cal schemes that were plotted on and carried out from British territory, necessarily rankle in our minds. We are constrained to say to the Canadians and British government: " The evils you did us have returned upon yourselves." We speak here of the people and not of the government, which should know nothing bnt its dnty and the honor of the nation. Govern ments, however, occasionally strain a point one way or the other in such a matter as this, and frequently happen to aoeord with public sentiment We owe England nothing. We have no sympathy with her political system or her government ot Ireland. She has shown herself on every occasion inimical to and jealous of | this country. She fostered the enemies of the United States during the war of the rebellion. She was at peace with us and ought to hare shown her friendship by preventing nil this. We might retaliate with justice now her turn has come, if wc should think proper ; but our government prefers to show the dignity and honor of the country in stricllv performing its duly, though iu doing so it may act in opposi tion to public sentiment. We are not called upon, however, to protect the Canadians; lot them protect themselves. Wc should merely be neutral. Whatever the opinion of the government at Washington may be with regard t? the char acter or imprudence of the Fenian movement on Canada, it iB to be hoped that the Secretary of State will not be permitted to sac rill o?t feelings of humanity or do violence to public opinion in yielding too much to British demands aud vengeance. Mr. Seward is too apt to toady to foreign governments and to sccrifice Americun pride and interests to their wishes. Let him imitate in the present ousc the invariable conduct of Great Britain, which throws the protection of its flag over its sub jects everywhere, right or wrong. Let not our government be too severe itself on those who hove erred, and let It not fail to give all the protection possible to its citizens who may have fallen into the hands rt the British. But, while we are thus displaying so orach zeal in enforcing the laws of neutrality and of a friendly Power, so contrary to what England did In onr war, would it not be well for Mr. Seward to remind the British Government that the Alabama claims are not jet settled? We tbink ii is a suitable occasion to demand- a set tlement of those cinlm*. If England hns any conscience in the matter it ought surely to be moved at surh a time. Let Mr. Seward in form the British government that while we can be magnauimoii* to it in it? difficulties we ex peel justice hall be done Puts. The wise man snys-there is a time lor everything, and we think this is a very good time to demand a set tlement of the elaims growing out off Great Britain's brunch ol neutrality toward the United States. Condition ok tux Kitiiijai. Has*.*.?The recent revelation* as to tfc? insolvent condi t'on of sov Tal national hank' ought to arouse public attention to the wholi of them and to tin* entire system. The searching propositions introduced into Congress sviih regard to them are very well hs far a* they go; hut they do not go tar enough. If die banks right under the eyes of the government tu Washington and in the vicinity, vith all the advantage* of heavy government deposits to operate upon ami sustain them, make sueh disgraceful fail ures as we have witnessed, what may not be the condition of others ? The mnsa of the people are delinked by these banks being called national and having a sort o<" ronnec tion with the government, and trust them with thei.' money snil confidence, when . In fact, they lire only private corporations. The gov ernment is not sesponaiblr for their transac tions. nor. as we maintain, for their vireulating notes beyond what their deposited bonds andf Meets may res Mrs. The people have beeti miehd liy the action of Congress in creating these banks, aui the govicnment is. morally ra iqmnsiMe to protect them from evil conse quences as far ws it ia able. We di mand, there fore. a thorough investigation intotbc affairs of the national >sinks and a prompt and periodi cal exhibit of their transactions to the public. But, above all, the whole system which la sus ceptible of such frauds should be abolished. The profits of circulation, which the govern ment now makes a free gift of to these private monopolies, ought to be saved and appropri ated to paying the national debt. This in fsr more important question than that of the negro, and we hopo Congress will have sense and patriotism enough to attend to it before adjourning and before the country be perma nently saddled by such a gigantic and danger ous monopoly. I Thb Rawcam and Jarr IVtvm' Taut.?The radical partisans in Congress and radical pa pers throughout the country have persistently abused President Johnson tor postponing the trial of Jeff Davis when the Executive baa all the time held the traitor subject to the dem tads of the Chief Justice and stood ready to exe cute the law. The radical Chief Justice post poned the trjpl open frivyjous pretexts as long m he could, but wu at lost forced to indite and arraign him. Now the radical Attorney General Speed comrs to Mr. Chase's rescue and postpones the trial on account of the weather. When shall we hare done with this farce T Capture of Rcguia'i Folnt. The remarkable victory won by the police and naval forces under President Schultz at Seguln's Point is without parallel in history. It must hereafter challenge the admiration of the world. The annals of the past furnish u* the records of many brilliant victories secured by strategy, but nothing to compare with this great feat of President Schultz. Hero we have an expedition fitted out to capture grounds for a quarantine; a force of policemen, armed to the teeth, are marched on board of the harbor steamer Deer; commissioner Acton manoeu vres the army of policemen in the most scien tific warlike manner, and once on board of ? the steamer this force patiently await the arrival of the commander-in-chief. Just as the shades of evening were settling over this me tropolis President .Schultz made his appear j ance and the expedition embarked for the theatre of operations. The entire evening was taken up in performing extraordinary manoeu vres in the lower bay, kuown in military science as feints to deceive the enemy. By the time that this bad been accomplished the fog set in and the expedition was compelled to lay to until morning. During tho long weary night the policemen waited in suspense, not know ing but that it was the last night they would spend in this world. At the first ap pearance of the dawn of duy the expedition again set ont on its mission. Rounding 'he point at Staten Island the steamer Deer was now joined by th? revenue cutter Cayuga, and tho two vessels, with colors flying, procooded on their course. As they neared Regain's Point guns were run out 6f the portholes of the Cayuga and the gunners stationed at their po-ts, while the policemen An the steamer Deer were marshalled in solid columns In readi ness for the attack. As this warlike fleet neared the shore a f w oystermen, engaged in oyster fishing., looked on in amazement, defiantly shaking their fists at the expedition, at tho same time say ing "Yon had better go back." In the face of this menace President Schultz uiored 011 towards the shore and under the protection of the guns of the Cayuga landed his forces, marched thein across the dock and took possession of the first bnilding that would furnish a shelter for his troops. The Cayuga was thereupon brought to anchor, with its guns bearing upon the enemy, ready to open fire ai a moment's warning. Everything in readiness, a scouting parly was sent out to learn the whereabouts of the enemy. These scouts soon returned and announced that they found the foe in force, forty strong, but a short distance in front, hard at work stamping their feet and shaking their fists; that a cavalry fores wus also discovered, three in number, and that the enemy bad been apprised of their coming by a series of signals in the shape of bonfire. Un der this condition of affairs President Schultz, seeing that there was no time to be lost, signalled Captain Fnuncc, ol the Cuyuga, to keep a sharp lookout o* shore, and ordered General Acton to move forward with the land force*. Before this formidable army the enemy beat a hasty retr.wt and the victory was won without firing a gun. Nothing remained for President Schultz to do bat to take possession, which be immediately did, taking the precaution to es tablish a thorough picket line to avoid a sar pnse. Thus w.w? Seguin's Point captured, without loss of blood. Some of those who are jealous of the great fum? so suddenly won will say that all thi* might have been ac complished witliowt so much flourish of trumpets and warlike display, but all such view the affair in too narrow a light Had they gone quietly and without any dis play and taken possession, which they no doubt sould have don* without any trouble, we should hsv * had no material for future his torians to impress upon coming generation* the importance of the great victory at Seguin's Point, nor would the name* of Schultz and Acton have gone down to posterity with a halo oft glory around- them To themrNcw York and the whole country will be res Iter be under s debt of gratitude for this brilliant achievement. NJ>w that the aaptnre has b'-era made all that remains for President Schultz t* do is to issne a proclamation insist ing that u strict neutrality shall be nhacrved for the benefit of his old enemies. The N/aoaha San* Can as.-?We pirccive that the Senate Committee on Commerce hawe de cided to report favorably upon the House frill for the construction ot a Hhip runnl around Niagara Full*. The Mil will tl. rrefnre paw without doubt. The effect will bo toiacilitate the trans ponation' of Western produce direct to the seaboard at reduced rates and In much shorter time tha.r is now required. As a question of internal improvement there can be no objec tion to the measure. It will also make the United States independent ?f the Wetland Canal, through British possession, upon wbieb we have now to rely In a great degree for the re ceipt of grain from the West and for military purposes. This project has been vehemently opposed by the Erie Canal interest and the canal towns in Western New York. It baa been urged by ita opponents that Western pro duce would go direct to Europe through the St. Lawrence If the canal was constructed A large portion of it goes that way now, and* that fact has not materially damaged the interest* of the Erie Canal nor the shipping business of New York. The construction of the canal will no doubt vastly increase the transportation of produce from the West, and it is probable that the increase, far some years to come, may go tbrongh the 8t Lawrence. As for any damage which the Niagara ship canal can do to this city, the enterprise of New York will settle that question, We have grown too great and powerfal to fear anything of the kind; while, as a groat pnblic work, and aa a general benefit to the whole country, we can afford to approve the enterprise, apart from all sectional views, or, indeed, for that matter, without any consideration of how mack jobbing may be connected witk Ik Oiwtihtiso Bboadwat.?While tba Legisla ture Is vainly fanning projects to relieve Broad way our city authorities not only allow that important thoroughfare to be blocked up by such necessary avlla aa pUee of bnildlng ma terials, but even permit the establishment of somsbody's patent stationary engine on the sidewalk in front of the Cliy llall Park. Where arc the poUoe t ' Outdoor (porttxTki Pattrwa Bmn. It is exceedingly gratifying to notice that the taste for outdoor sports among the Ameri can people is steadily upon the increase. As a rule Americans keep too closely to their houses. The men are con&nod to their stores, shops and offices, and the women to their par lors, sewing rooms and kitchens, during the day, and their evenings ore passed in the theatres, at homo or in other people's resi dences. Many a lady, more unfortunate tbnn her servants, never has a day out. Many a gen tleman goes through the year without allowing himself even the brief vacation cujoyod by ins clerks and office boys. That beneficent institu tion, the Park, has reformed us somewhat iu this matter; the Boulevards will Improve us still more and the growing love of outdoor amusements will complete the reformation. Men now sometimes leave their business and women their household cares to take a walk or drive in the Park or to witness a yacht race, ? game of ball, or a steeple chase at the Pnterson ' course; and although the present season has been rather backward, it is easy to see that we are to have an im mense exodus to the watei ing places and rural retreats and a correspondingly large attend ance upon every sort of outdoor sport so soon as the fickle weather settles into the appropri ate temperature for June. The yuchtlug season will soon be inaugu rated by the annual regatta and review of the New York Yacht Club, and tbo baseball and cricket season has just commenced. At present, however, the races are the greut outdoor at traction and crowds of people attend them. I The old courses upon Long Island, the new courses at Patcrson and Hobokeu and the course not yet completed at Batbgates, under the auspices of the Jockey Club, all have their enthusiastic patrons. As to the old courses it will be observed that they still adhere to trot ting horses, a]j hough the public taste haw cbanged in faror of running racers. The grand race meetings of twenty years ago were superseded by trotting matches ; but there is a genuine revival of the racing furor once mora. The conse quence is that the trotting corrscs are not very popular, and, in fact, are chiefly fre quented by those who wish to bet and who m tke a living by betting. Wo still have the fastest trotters in the world, but the decrease ot interest in their performances xs very evi dent. The PatcEson races, where running horses are entered, attract a very different class of people from the roughs and rowdies i who go with the trotters. A pleasanler scene than the race course, with its thousands o! gaily dressed spectators, its natural beautie.; of trees and turf and its swifl horses, mounted by pnrti-colored jockey3, would be very difficult to find. To the English style, in which the Paterson 1 races are conducted, there ean be no objee- I tion, since that seems to be the best style; but. I to the English nomenclature udopted we do eldedly object. Those English races, the Oaks, the Derby, tbo Epsom and others, are named after persons or places connected with Eng lish sports. We cannot have an American Derby, for no Esrl of Derby established our course. Let us give the various ,races American nam's appropriate to the lo calities or to the persons concerned. At the Batbgates course this idea of originality is to be carried so tar as t,o change the tisnu' oval form of the race track to something rc i sembling the outside lines of the figure 8. Whether (bis form will not decrease the speed of the bones by causing them to change step at every turn remains to be seen. It may hap pen thai some genius of the Jockey Club has discovered an idea tar superior lo any ever entertained by the raeing men of England and the Continent; but we are rather Inclined to be doubtftil in regard to this matter, and we hope that the^iew fashioned track will be critically tested before it is thrown open to the public. Its novelty seems to be its only recommenda tion, and old turfmen shake thoir heads over it knowingly and with disapprobation; but still it may prove successful, and it so its originator will Iw entitled to ail the more credit. At any rata, no matter what form ot track may be finally adopted, the Batbgates course will un doubtedly do much to msko racing still more fashionable and will give a powerful stimulus to the taste for outdoor sports. AmrrlMM Toatdylam of Vlirtlgii Gavtra. mom la. The rigor with which oar govcrnmont is car rying out tbo neutrality doctrine is a part and parcel of the aame nystcm of Mtbserriency to foreign powers which has characterised the policy of the State Department since Mr. Sew. ard assumed control of it This officer hss in this, as in his conduct towards the people of Chile and Ecuador and his speech in Havana, in which he praised Spain as a powerful. Christian and Americanized nation, displayed an over-zealous disposition to serve the pur poses or toady to the power of foreign naMons totally unworthy the sanction of the people of this country ; and he should be led to mi un derstand their sentiments. In this connection we would inquire what has become of the report of Captain Walker, of the De Soto, in the affhir of the Bull Dog at Cape Haytien ? There mnat be such a docu ment in existence, aa it is the duty of every officer in command of our squadrons to send a flail narrative ot all Important occurrences in whieh they take part to the Department. In the whole annals of naval operations there never was anything more wanton, cruel or unjusti fiable than the oonduct of the British commander on that occasion. Not only did he commit a gross violation of public lav, but he was guilty of barbarities for which he had not even a colorable pretext. So conscious wan be himself of the fact, that when ba had run his veasel Into a situation ol difficulty from which be was nnablc to extricate her he sent a whining message to Captain Walker appealing to "American generosity" and hoping that he woald not take advantage of bis unfortunate position, as he was then in a tight place. If the commander of the De Soto bad trained his gnns on him and sunk him, with every man on board, he would not have exceeded the line of his duty. As it was, he took the more hamane part of receiving his wounded on his vessel and having them carefully attended to. Now, how doca it happen that, if an affair in which the law of nations and the dictates of humanity wore so shamefully violated as to elicit aa energetio protest llrom all the foreign Consols at the Cape, no official statement of any kind shonld have been published by the De partment? The contrast of British with Ameri can neutrality was In tteetf sufficiently cu iou* to merit a report, If tbe gravity at the other facta had not called for it. Captain Walker unquestionably sent t* the government a full statement of the aflfcir. He could not have suppressed it if be would, and the part which he took in it was of too honorable a character for him to desire to with hold it. Why has dot the Department given it to the public T Simply beoause it did not suit Mr. Seward's peculiar views of the necessities of our foroign policy to do so. He believes they are best consulted by a servile and oosa ploisant attitude towards foreign governments and by not even doing anything that may wound their sensibilities. He accordingly toadies England, he toadies Franco, and ho even toadies Spain, politically insignificant though she is. This is not a policy for a great nation to pursue. Let us be just; let us even be generous in our dealings with other Powers; but do not lot us compromise either our inter ests or dignity. Tbe sooner Mr. Seward takes the back track in the course he has chalked out for hiniBelf the better it will be for the country und tor bis own character. As a be ginning we call upon him to produce the re port lie has suppressed on the Cape Haytien affair. Impoiitaxt Traps Reoclatiqkb in Buaziu? Tbe Emperor of Brazil recently issued an o4ftf in reference to the coastwise trade of his em pire which is destined to bring about import ant results. It also shows that he is anxious to develop and inorease the commerce of that oountry, and, to accomplish that end, is willing to open the doors to foreign merchant vessels. The order in question permits foreign vessels to carry on transport and coastwise trade ba tween the ports in tbe empire, convey produce and all kinds of merchandise nntil the first day of January. 1868. This cannot fail to open an important trade witu Brazil and enable the outside world to know more about the valley of the Amazon and its commerce than Hereto fore. In this respect the shipowners and build on of this country ought to be specially bene fited. The experience which they have had in building steamers for our rivers and in con ducting our internal commerce will be of great practical value to them in this case. When the Chinese government was finally induced to introduce steam navigation on its rivers and coasts the American style of rivor steamers was selected in preference to all others for that trade. The Chinese saw that they were better adapted for the navigation of their rivers than those of any other country. A great demand at once sprung up. This arose from the fact that the enormous traffic on onr rivers and that great experience had enabled onr merchants to bring that kind of vessel nearer to perfection than those of any other country. The opening of the trade in Br .mil will in this respect be of special benefit to our merchants and will no doubt develop u trade between tbe northern and southern hemispheres of thin continent that will bo perfectly astonishing. It shows, on the other band, a liberal spirit on the part of ihe Emperor, and wc predict that the results will prove so beneficial that instead of preventing the trade at tbe time that the per mit expires he will bo anxious to extend it NEWS FROM THE PACIFIC.
