MUM HAY MOKAIHG, MARCH 14, 1853.
Divorces.
Sensible readers of our columns, (a numerous
body we are sure) has it never appeared to you
that the morality, both individual and public, of
the good people of the State of New York, might
be considerably promoted, if there were some
more rational arrangements for Divorces 1 Mar l
riage, by the law, is decided to be merely a civil
contract; which is a most sensible decision.
But when great incompatibility and repugnance,
and a responsive desire to release each other
from the contract and be free, follow at any time
afterward, there is no reason worth mentioning,
to prevent a divorce from being granted and re
corded. This plain dictate of a common intelli
gence and judgment, is so befogged by lawyers
and precedents, that it will probably look like
heresy to many. So there are many simple
truths, that the world has travelled away from,
and been from home so long, that it don’t know
their look, when it comes to see them again.
For instance, when Mr. and Mrs. Forrest both
wished to separate, fully convinced that they
could not live happily together, what earthly
sense was there in the law saying, “ No, you
must remain husband and wife; you cannot
part; you may never see or speak to each other
—you may both form other intimacies, and live
therein—but husband and wife you must be in
the consideration of the law.” O, beautiful con
tinuation of law, that shows such a regard for
the mere fact of what has been enacted, without
any regard to brains and even decency. For de
cency demands, whore a man and woman, of
good health, are nothing really to each other,
that they should not nominally bo husband and
wife. The law thus makes, between two per
sons who hate each other, the most sacred rela
tions ; forcing the woman to be the property of
the man she repels with disgust. The same law
punishes rape, when not legalized, with a long
term in the S ate Prison.
Marriage is but a civil contract. Then why
not provide, as in all other partnership arrange
ments, or contracts which involve persons, and
services, that there shall bo a means, where both
parties are agreed, of winding up the business,
and dissolving the firm. It would be much bet
tor to dissolve openly and positively than to live
in bonds, and sin in secret, as many husbands
and wives do, who ought to be divorced.
The reasons which the law now admits as le
gitimate causes for divorce are very few; hardly
more than one, and its varieties—that is adul
tery.
It ought to be enough to know, without any
came assigned, that both “husband and wife ”
wish to part and be divorced; that ought to an
swo ,wo say. That sweeping reform would out
the knot at onoo, and we hope to see it introduc
ed in the Legislature.
Apropos, we see that there is now a bill before
the Legisiatnro to extend the list of causes which
shall be considered proper grounds for divoroe.-
Iho bill provides that the Supreme Court shall
have the like jurisdiction and be vested with the
same powers it possesses in oases of adultery, ex
cept as otherwise provided therein, namely : To
grant divorces for the following causes :
First— The cruel and inhuman treatment of a
wife by her husband, or a husband by his wife,
as may render it unsafe for them to cohabit.
Second. Wilful desertion or voluntary aban
donment for a period of three years of one hy
the other with refusal by either him or her of
mutual duties and Obligations.
Third.— ln other oases whore, in the discre
tion of the Court, there has been extreme hard
ship and peculiar inconvenience, and whore jus
tioc cun be substantially promoted, unless it ap
pears that the party complaining is guilty. The
compilin'; for the divorce shall specify the nature
and ciroumsta-ious of the case.
Fvwth,.- The husband or wife of a party sen
tenced tr> imprisonment for crime for a period of
not less than three years may marry again.
The third class above, would almost seem to
embody the broad ground we recommend to he
taken ; but, if so ft- V mado mnHHv hv excess of
16 a P refcfc 7 vague provision; for it
.n uopand upon the peculiar views of every dif
ferent judge.
Lawyers will probably go against any reform
oi this L kind, bsoause it simplifies and reduces
matters too much for them ; or, perhaps, from a
sincere conviction in favor of the complicated
sysrem which we have inherited from the Eng
lish law, in respect to Divorces, liut. oven the
strongest friends of compulsion in such cases,
must admit that there will not only, in all pro
bability, be more suffering but more wickedness,
where a man and woman, after marriage, hav
ing formed a settled distrust and dislike for each
other, are yet forced by the most stringent of
statums to remain in the yoke, side by side, than
if they were quietly unhitched and permitted to
depart in peace.
Ah, but, says some admirer of the wisdom of
our forefathers, if divorce wore so cheap, we’d
have husband and wife parting for every little
domes io spat, or tea-table tempest. My vene
rable friend, have you not learned that the
soUdest growth, and the most reliable stamina,
lor halier, nations, and trees, is not that which
is from force or extra direction and compulsion,
but ihat which grows of its own volition and (he
forces of nature 1 Hava you not observed that
the most wa‘ohfnl and numerous laws never pre
vent a regno from being a rogue; while an
honest man is an honest man, just the same
whether there are laws or not 1 All of which,
goeth not to prove that there is no use in laws,’
but that poopie, in certain cases, get along much
bettor without tho meddlesome interference and
bolstering of the same, than they would with.
Snob assistance and support are much like accus
toming the physical frame to rely for Us vigor
on the help of modioine?. /
Wo do not say bat what oases would be likely
to ha; pen, of the sort just alluded to, if divorces
nould be had easily. Hut, it is to be considered
that divorce, almost equally with marriage, is a
serious business. As things are, marriage, seri
oui ai it is, is often entered upon with great flip
pancy, taste, and from momentary impulse.
Undei the state of things wo plead for, divorces
would no doubt bo at times asked for, through
the same temporary motives. Such things are
nnavo : dable, Human nature don’t admit of be
ing completely regulated by law; if it did, we
should soon have a model world. All that would
be necessary, would be a few chapters com
mend ig with “Be it enacted,” &c. What we
doma d is that there should not, merely from
precedent, and greatly to the harm of every ono
who is effected thereby, continue to exist the
senseless fiction of holding two parties nominally
in the closest union, while they really have no
thing to do with each other, except in the vray
of mutual dislike and annoyance and offense.
A Gleam of Light.
In a previous issuo wo referred to the swindle
which certain bubble railroad companies, aided
and abetted by members of Congress, attempted
to play upon the public. Indeed, so enormous
had tho “swindle” grown, that journals of the
most diverse political opinions, and even mem
bers of the House of Representatives, at the
eleventh hour were frightened into propriety.
Ihe first thought proper to condemn, and the
1 ettor, by their vote, to kill the hugo monster
that bid fair to override the tights of the people
and tho property of the Republic. The bill pro
posed to give to private companies forty million's
of acres of the public domain. So near was tlßs
monster bill becoming a law, that its opponents
had given up all idea of further opposin g its
passage. But so gigantic now appeare d the
fraud, that the getters-up were terrific at tho
uncouth and accursed spirit which by their in
cantations they had summoned, to. Vppoar from
the dirk and terrible depths of that he:l of mo
nopoly whibh bids fair, sooner or l a (er to sur
render our freedom and republic- in : sm j., to the
not merciful hands of a landed oligarchy.
Terrified, wo have said, as freso tools of ag
gregation were, they dared no'c on the final trial
sustain the nefarious scheme which in noisome
places they had concocted, and their own voices
destroyed it beyond the porrer of resuscitate ,n.
Tho v to stood one hundred in tho affirmative to
eighty-four in the negative We have said tl lat
it was beyond the power of resuscitation, but - it
is not probable that speculators, whose phms
were so near being fulfilled, will be likely to let
their favorite schemes of aggrandisement thus to
(juiotly expire without an effort to revive the m
Although the attempted fraud, as a whole. Ides
inanim.te on the table, speculators will be ca re
fill to have bills brought in which will mi ret
their own particular wiahts, and instead of
marching off boldly and bodily with the Repub
lic's wealth, they, like rats, will nibble tho
cheese until they are gorged.
Piece by piece, and slice after slice, is eat from,
tho goodly loaf, and as beasts of prey are ever
ravenous, their masticators would rust rot ,
wore they not kept sharp by chewing up the
wealth and fattening on the blood and sweat if
tho people. Chamelion like, monopoly will as
sume another color, and may attempt to foist, it
self upon the nation, not as a monster of pi -oy,
but as a benefactor. In the hoar of its sirppo sed
power it was haughty and imperious, in its i lay
of weakness it oronohes and whines, and kii ises
the rod which castigates it; bat when its e ads
are accomplished, its before hidden fangi i will be
hideously exhibited to tho cowering peo pis, w ho
now, in its hour of weakness, may sy» ipa’thi as
with and nourish it into renewed, but d iejointnd
strength Since the demise of the giant , legion s
of pigmies have made their appoaran oe ; and j
in their small way are as grasping ao was tho J
defunct. The giant would have swalloi red mill-1
ions of acres ere he had bees satiaft id The ■
pigmies will gorge their hundreds of thousands;
but then there are so many of them, they will
require as much, if not more, than the insatia
ble monster of cormorant memory. The people
aro legitimate game, and so long as the leeches
are nourished by the blood of our citizens, they
wiil noc be over fastidious as to the manner in
which they may absorb it. The bite ol the spi
der is said to be oftentimes as fatal as the poison
ejected into the tortured victim of the cabro ca
bello
Since the above was in type we learn
that Representatives from the new States have
not only threatened, but absolutely agreed, not
to vote the usual appropriations, unless lands
asked for are granted to the bubble companies of
which these gentlemen claim to be the organs.
The matter is now brought to a point. Either
the “swindles” must be sanctioned, or govern
ment go without the annual appropriations ne
cessary to carry on the business of the various
departments.
The Annual Report of the Comptroller.
A paragraph in our last issue announced that,
at a very late hour on Saturday, the Annual Re
port of the worthy Comptroller, was placed on
our desk, and that we had not, at that time, an
opportunity to review, with any degree of fair
ness, the important tabular statements embodied
in his 136 pages, octavo.
We shall endeavor to put some of the items of
expense to which we are annually subjected, be
fore our readers, and thereby save them muoh
time and trouble in Quixotic attempts, which
their mad-cap enthusiasm may induce them to
undertake in the intricate path of figures, or in
the mysterious columns so elaborately placed be
fore them, not for their information, bul their
utter confusion. “There’s nothing,” says the
learned Mr. Stubbs, “like looking profound. A
reputation for profundity will pass you through
the doors of the most hermetically sealed theatre,
and if, Bub, you should ever want a drink on
tick, look profound. * It adds to a gentleman’s
respectability. Them’s my i entiments, Bub, and
I act on ’em.”
The Report is very profound; so much so, in-
deed, that a pair of double-magnifying and re
flecting convex lens have failed us in untwisting
the gordian knot, or in directing us through the
iabarynth, which we rather unwisely and un
thinkingly entered. But as we have at length
emerged to day-light, we feel prepared to evolve
from the mysteries of the Report, one or two
items of interest to the reader.
Before remarking on the document under con
sideration, it may bo well to state by way of pre
liminary, a few facts which, we presume, are
very generally known to all,—save those fortunate
gentlemen, who sit engowned in “ Aldormanio
Halls, and who, it is shrewdly suspected, by
many" of their constituents, drunk flowing bum
pers from the waters of Lethe on the eve of their
installation,—that the city of New York is situ
ated, topographically speaking, on an island, of
an average breadth of one mile, ‘* be the same
more or less,” as the sheriff uniformly remarks
in his advertisements, and from the point of the
Battery to King’s Bridge is some thirteen miles
in length. The island is bounded by the Bay,
the East and North Rivers, the Harlem River
and Spuytentivel Creek, and contains a proba
ple population of six hundred thousand bipods,
independent of the feline, canine, bovine, and
others of the quadruped inhabitants. There are
many donkeys on the island, the fattest of this
genus are those to bo found vegetating within
the iron railings of the City Hall Park. As the
City Hall and the purses of the citizens are re
quired by law to support a certain number of
this particular species, fair play is shown in the
representation—the city being cut up into twen
ty Districts or Wards; from these Wards, two
representatives are delegated to represent the
asinine qualities of those from whom they have
the good fortune to be sent. Now we do not
particularly mean to say, nor shall we insist upon
it, that their constituents are asses, but if a
stranger were called upon to give his opinion of
the people from judging their representatives, he
would be apt to utter sotlo voce, that the “ dear
people” and “ intelligent masses” wore not par
ticularly fortunate in their selections, and if they
were, why, hem, he could but reply “like master
like man.” An entire ignorance of the market
or mint value of coined money appears to be one
of the principal failings of the delegates; but to
make up for thiai, they have keen and* critical
erudition on tlm flavor of Havannas over Ken
tuckys’, and can tell to a nicety the superiority
of French win os or brandies over Prison whisky,
or New Jersey champagne. Bivalves, they dis
cuss with considerable intelligence, and on the
excellencies of turtle, they are quite at homo, as
unmistakable items introduced here and there
on the pages of the report will amply testify to.
We are not envious, by any means. “There’s
nothing like being jolly,” as a distinguished
character is wont to exclaim. “There’s nothing
like quizzing” at the public expense, say our
brilliant and not over fastidious City Fathers.
Heaven help the sons. Taxation is nothing—a
mere trifle—in their estimation. “Get all the
eggs y<ou can out of the goose,” is with them an
approved maxim. If they legislate for the peo
ple, Uie people must pay for their services, and
this is the wav in which the nnhlic are called

inese significant jokes are capital, and we
have not a doubt but that the tax-payers gene
rally will laugh heartily over them—particularly
as they are at their expense.
Aldermen, the world over, are good at feeling,
and why should the civic gentlemen of the me
tropolis of America be accounted as number two
in this matter, when by a bold and magnanimous
step they can ascend the platform and take a
position rather in advance of number one 1

Fearful that our citizens may not be taxed to

- If Mj. Enoch Camp’s statement approaches
truth, that police officers double their returns,
viz : If they arrest thirty poor devils for misde
meanor, to show their “ indefatigability,” they
return thirty other individuals “born in the heat
of their imagination,” which will show to the
authorities a respectable total of arrests at figure
sixty. This accounts for the fact that the nice
little sum of $530,671 09, was expended within
the last year U> support the “starry system.”
Prom page 18 the following information may
be gathered: “ The wharves and piers belonging
to the city* exclusive of those occupied by the
corporation, and those used for ferry purposes,
are estimated as worth $2,998,000. Revenues
for the same, for the year 1851, amounted to
$97,706 'll.” Good! A little over three and a
half per cent, is returned to the corporation cof
fers in the shape of rent. We are not, we be
lieve, informed how much these same wharves
and pier* cost for the keeping. It is a question
in our mind whether the expenditures do not
exceed tTbe income. It would be a wasteful piece
of 9con(ymy if it were be otherwise.
'On page 19 we are permitted an illumination
Prom the following ray of light. The tax levy
of 1852, for City Government, exclusive of Police
and Lamps and Gas, amounts to $1,696,650;
Police, 540,000 ; Lamps and Gas, $200,000
total, for city expenditures, $2,436,650. “ Put
that in your pipe, my master, and smoke it!”
There are a variety of little items, uninterest
ing to any but tax-payers and tenants at will, in
this curious and miscellaneous pamphlet; a.d
those in quest of a game to while away an hour
would do well to beg, borrow or steal the “Comp
troller’s Report for 1851.”
Tho following extract will afford food for con
gratulation to the “weary of heart” and the
“broken in spirit.”

Croton Aqueduct and Reservoirs,) more than $19,000,000,
are also pledged for the redemption of the City Debt, thus
placing th a credit of the city beyond the reach of suspi
cion ; and furnishing the mott undoubted security for the
redemption of its stocks and loans as they become due.
Under the head of “repairs and supplies,” we
find on page 102, that the whitewashing of the
corporation, for the year 1851, cost the people
but s7l 25. Considering the official conduct of
the late Boards, we are impressed with the idea
that the contractor for this job must have been
fearfully chiseled, and unless old Cooley had it
made np to him some other way, we know not
how ho has repaired the loss.

Birth-day of St. Patrick.
It is intimated that the birth-day of the patron
Saint of Ireland, will be celebrated with unusual
pomp by the Irish residents of New York and
vicinity this year. We understand that the
Ninth Regiment, the Montgomery Guards, Em
mett Guards, Irish American Guards, and indeed
all the Irish uniformed troops of New York city
will parade The Irish companies of J ersey City,
Newark, Paterson, Brooklyn, Williamsburgh,
etc., are confidently expected to attend and take
their places in the line. The civic societies are
also invited, and altogether, we anticipate a
brilliant turn out by the expatiarted sons and
voluntary emigrants from the Green Isle of the
seas. The procession will form into line about
ten o’clock. The troops will meet at Bond street,
the right resting on Broadway. Metropolitan
Hall is selected as the palce of rendezvous. A
brief sketch of the life and services of the great
advocate of Christianity in Ireland, may not bo
inappropriate on this occasion.
St. Patrick, as he is termed by courtesy, for
he was never canonized, was born of noble pa
rents, in Tours, in the South of France, on the
17th of March, in the year 373 after Christ; was
taken prisoner dur ng a predatory excursion of
the Irish in the year 387, he being then 16 years
of age. On his arrival in Ireland, he \yas sold
into captivity, as was then usual among all na
tions, and spent six years in the service of Milcho
Huanan, a petty prince or lord in Dalradia, or as
it is now called, Antrim. There existed a law
in Ireland somewhat similar to the Mosaic one,
which provided that after the seventh year of
servitude, all captives should be liberated, and
in accordance with this edict St. Patrick was
liberated in the year 395. It is asserted that he
escaped from service, but such is not the fact;
he, after his liberation, proceeded in haste to the
sea coast, naturally anxious to return as soon as
possible to his family and country, and applied
for a passage to a captain, who refused to take
him without money. Having relumed to France,
he studied Roman Civil Law for three years,
under the tuition of German, afterwards St.
German. It was after this that he began to dis
play a tendency towards a religious life, and
having spent much time in travelling, he entered
the priesthood, and in the year 418, was conse
crated Bishop of Auxerre, in Fiance. Ho con
tinued in this see until the year 432, when, St.
Palladius dying, he applied for and received the
Irish mission. When St. Patrick landed the
second time in Ireland, he was sixty years of age,
and he continued in his mission until the year
493, when, at the Abbey of Saul, in Antrim, ho
died at the advanced age of 120 years. It is con
tended that he died at Glastonbury, in England,
but such is not only improbable but impossible.
His remains were discovered oa the landing of
the English in Ireland, and we believe some of
his canonicals were removed. The only person
almost, on whom St. Patrick could make no im
ression, was his former master.

The Cut Direct.-—The valiant Knight
of the Iron Crown may crow in qarnest now.—
‘rood right has he to snub Master Webster for
the many unkind hits under the fifth rib he has
received at his hands. We already begin to see
the air “glower with blood,” and if like Fal
staff’s regiment we are doomed to “fill a pit, as
well as hotter,” why tho^ sooner wo are in the
sooner the double headed eagle will have peace,
if not absolution. Abbott Lawrence must have
felt “bad” because of the Austrian minister’s
absence from his re-imion. The London Globe
notices the “ cut direct” in the following man
ner:—“Yesterday evening his Excellency the
American Minister and Mrs. Abbott Lawrence
gave their first re-union this season at their hos
pitable mansion, Piccadilly. The whole of the
members of the diplomatic corps, with the excep
tion of the Austrian minister, were either per
sonally present, or represented by the Secreta
ries of Legation. The general circle inclu-
ded most of the fashionables in town, and many
of the names whom we nave already i«
the list of Earl Granville’s assembly.”
• ** — - - Al __ j. ,
page of this paper will be found a long article on
this subject. The writer is thoroughly satisfied
that these Associations are beneficial, and there
fore expresses his opinions pretty strongly that
way. He also notices the objections that hare
been raised, and appends the law under which
they are organized. The arguments and illus
trations of th.e friends of these associations look
very plausible, and the reports of those which
have been some years in existence seem to carry
out the idea that they contain the germ of an
important principle for the benefit of the working
man. Still wo must confess that wo do not thor
oughly understand the subject. We must say,
however, in justice to the gentlemen engaged in
the various Building Associations, that we have
every reason to suppose that they are working
for what they really believe to be a benefit to all
concerned, and we are not prepared to say that
they are wrong. What we advise is, for every
man to investigate the matter for himself.

EDITORIAL BREVITIES.
*** Here is an item for the Women’s
flights ladies A recent English paper says:—
“ Among the fleet'lately windbound in Lamlaob,
not the least, but perhaps the greatest wonder
was the good old brig Cloetus, of Salt Coats,
which for more than twenty years, has been com
manded by an horoio and exceedingly clever
young lady, Mi ss Betsy Miller, daughter of the
late Wm. Millar, Esq., ship-owner and wood
merchant of that town. He was concerned with
several vessels both in the American and coast
ing trade. Miss Betsy, before she went to sea,
acted as “ ship’s husband” to her father; and,
seeing how the captains in many oases behaved,
her romantic an d adventurous spirit impelled her
to go to sea her self Her father gratified her ca
price, and gave her the command of the Cloetus,
which she holds to the present day, and she has
weathered the storms of the deep when many
commanders off the other sex have been driven to
pieces on the rocks. Her position and attitudes
on the quarter deck in a gale of wind are often
spoken :■ 1, and would do credit to an admiral. We
must not omit to stake, that during the long period
of this singular young lady’s diversified voyaging,
no seaman of her crew or officer under her tjpm
mand, oonld speak otherwise of her than with
the greatest respect. The Cloetus is well known
in the ports of Belfast, Dublin, Cork, &o. She
is familiarly knowia by the rude Highland boat
men as the ship with the she-captam." This is a
practical demonstr atlon of Woman’s capabilities.
Twenty years is cortainly a long enough time to
test the matter.
*,* The Board of Engineers and Fore
men of the New York Fire Department have
presented a manly remonstrance to the Common
Council against tho organization of new Fire
Companies at this time. It is a sensible docu
ment, and its reasoning against the course of the
Common Council is sound. Wo fear, however,
that all argument will be thrown away on the
men to whom it is addressed. With the excep
tion of five or six, the members of tho present
Common Council are m>.t worthy, in a moral or
intellectual point of vievr, to serve as waiters in
a respectable Eating House. They want to kill
the Chief Engineer, Mi. Carson, and as they
hold tho power in their own hands, we think
there is but little reason to hope that any remon
strance will stop them. They are, it is true, a
little cowardly in tho matter, or they would re
move him directly without tho aid of bogus lire
companies. They need not be afraid, however.
They can do Just wfaat tLey please, and the peo
ple will re-elcat them. Our citizens appreciate
the joke of keeping snob men in office, and they
are therefore perfectly safe B.sides, by remov
ing Carson direct, a considerable sum will be sa
ved, which can be divided round among the wor
thy Aldermen as perquisites. This—if no other
reason would—should induce the City Fathers to
pause and consider what they are doing.
*,* Law is a very uncertain spfculation.
One of our German co-temporaries brought a suit,
during the past week, in the Superior Court for
damages, alledging tbiat the editor of another
German paper had seriously damaged him by
publishing a libel of, or in reference to him, and
the jury awarded him six cents. Another Ger
man brought a slander suit in the same court for
damages, and got a like verdict. In another case
decided during the past week, however, the jury
gave the father of a young lady, who was al
ledged to have been soduced by the defendant,
S3OOO damages for the loss of the services of his
daughter. Such are the glorious uncertaintes of
the the law.

*** Archbishop Hughes’ lecture at Me
tropolitan Hall, on Monday evening, was at
tended by an immense crowd. The subject was
the “Catholic Chapter in the History of the
United States.” The proceeds of the lecture
were appropriated to charity. The Archbishop
is rather more liberal in this last effort than we
had expected.

%* M. Petin, the celebrated iEronaut
of Paris is now in this city. We had the honor
of a visit from this gentleman yesterday, and
have been assured that h« intends in a short
time to astonish us with some of his experi
ments. Our readers will recollect that some
time ago we publshed an engraving showing the
principles of an Car of his construction,
with which he claimed that he would be enabled
to navigate the air. Many of our scientific men
at the time declared this an imposibility. We
are glad to say that M. Petin is now among us,
and will ere long give us a practical demonstra
tion of what he can do in the way of
navigation.
*** The London Times says that the
number of people arrested in France during the
few weeks preceding the announcement was
100,000! These are all for political offences. —
This shows the wonderful harmony which reigns
among the people. Either the French are a na
tion of cowards and slaves, or there is a volcano
beneath the usurpers feet, which ere long will
send him to his final account, and his military
government with him as a sort of body guard.
*** The public has been kept in a state
of feverish excitement for several weeks, by the
promised disclosures which Mr. Andrew Stevens
assured us he was about to mako in refezenco to
iho Astor Place Riots, the Forrest Divorce Case,
and sundry other interesting matters They
have not yet made their appearance. What is
the cause of this delay 1 Surely Mr Stevens is
not trying a practical joke on his old friend For
rest.
*** Madame Rumor has set a story
afloat in Poston that Mrs. Anna Cora Mo watt,
was about to surrender to a wealthy Englishman
who proposes to take her off the stage as soon as
the nuptials are duly celebrated. It may bo all
gossip, but after the event which added Gold
schmidt to the name of Jenny Lind, we should
not be surprised at anything that may happen to
popular professional ladies.
%* B The Aztecs continue to attract the
curious. The Society Library at the corner of
Broadway and Leonard street, is daily crowded
by all classes of our citizens who seem to be more
and more captivated with these curious little
people. They are making remarkable progress
in the study of our language, and will ere long
bo able to confound those wiseacres who pro
nounce them idiots.
*** Presidential elections always give
us some singular cabalistic mysteries. That
which is to bo brought to bear this year is,—
“K. K. K. K.,” which, being translated, signi
fies Kossuth , K inkle, Kuba, and Kanada. The
party which adopts this comprehensive platform
w ill be pretty sure to win if the K.’s can only be
made to harmonize.
*** Prof. Owen, we see by his advertise
ment, promises to explain the science of Psychol
ogy to the audience so that every one will under
stand how to manipulate as well as himself. He
also proposes to show tho audience some very
astounding experiments—introducing his “men
tal telegraph,” etc. He lectures every evening
this week, at 537 Broadwa-.
*** The colored aristocracy of the
Ninth Ward, we perceive, have been laying
their grievances before the City Fathers. They
want the Common Council to pass a law to allow
them to ride in omnibuses tho same as white peo
ple. The petition was referred to the Commit
tee on “Wool and Ivory,” of which, we believe,
Aid. Sturtevant is chairman.
*** The list of letters is to be published
hereafter on Friday instead of Saturday. When
are we to have the new post office a little further
up-town 1 Our down-town friends have enjoyed
the joke about long enough, of seeing the citizens
crowding down among them for their letters.
*** The daily political papers of the
city of Paris has been reduced from thirty to ton,
since Louis Napoleon has taken them in hand.
By this operation alone, over 3000 people are
thrown out of employment.
%* Professor Richard gives another free
lecture to-morrow evening at 685 Broadway, on
his theory of teaching French. 'The first num
ber his now paper, we are told, has met with
great ‘Success.
*** The Annual Ball of Dodworth Cor
net Band comes off to-morrow night at the Apollo
Rooms. Of course there will be a crowd there.
Amusement, people will have, and if
instruction can be combined with it, how much
more rational and worthy the attention of sensi
ble people it can be made. Such is the charac
ter of Prof. Williams’ entertainments in Mental
Alchemy, at Metropolitan Hall; for no one can
witness the wonderful phenomena there exhibi
ted, without being convinced that modern re- 1
searches into the powers of the human mind have
succeeded in developing more of our spiritual
nature, and tho relations of mind to matter, than
all tho so-called divinations of ancient astrolo
gers and soothsayers. We say then if you
wish to be amused, and at the same time
amazed beyond measure, attend the Professor’s
that “there is BomethinglifiTi§^ , en^£adTCßl , tfit* J ~
as Hamlet says, “that has never been dreamt of
in your philosophy.” The ladies are also to have
a chance by themselves, we see, in the after
noons, and if there bo any humbug about it, as
some contend, they will be sure to find it out.
Whenever any article is extensive
ly advertised, the public are led to doubt the
truth of it; this is reasonable in some cases, but
not always. The Bowery Savings Store adver
Used two weeks ago—selling out, closing the
concern, &c. Of this there can be no doubt, if
a fair inference may be drawn from the fact that
the establishment has been crowded to its utmost
limit every day, and thousands on thousands of
dollars worth have been sold; and we are told
by those we have confidence in, and we have seen
with our own eyes, that goods have been sold at
prices far below anything we have ever heard of
The proprietors continue their sales, and have
brought in all their reserved stock, out of which
improved opportunities are offered. As a word
of advice to our readers, wo say—go there, go
early, and be not afraid of being deceived, for
every article is marked in plain figures, and our
word for it, you don’t leave without buying;
this is undoubtedly the best chance ever offered
in New York.
Vegetable Eureka Plaster. — We
would oall the reader’s attention to the adver
tisement of this compound, which will be found
on our last page. We regard it as one of the
marvels of the age. Having tested it personally,
and seen its effects on others in many of the ills
to which flesh is heir to, we have no hesitation
in recommending it to the public. We never re
member seeing so many well-known and respect
able witnesses coming forward to give evidence
in favor of any similar remedy. Our own expe
rience is, however, far more conclusive than that
of any other testim ny. Let the suffering try its
effects, and they will then be better able to judge
whether wo overrate the merits of this powerful
agent for the relief of human suffering.
The Irving Building Association. —
This Association has made remarkable progress
considering the length of time it has been in
operation. The fact is to be in some measure
attributed to the gentlemen who have assumed
its management. Wo see that a public meeting
is to be held on Tuesday evening next, at Maso
nic Hall, at whioh Mr. W. T. B. Milliken will
deliver a Lecture, explaining its principles and
the plan of its operations. We advise all who
wish to become acquainted with the subject to at
tend, as the Irving is one of the best of these
Associations, and is in the hands of gentlemen
fully competent to carry it out suoces-fully.
The Loafer and the Gentleman.—
Our citizens were favored on Tuesday evening
last, with a capital lecture on the Loafer , and
wo are promised one on the Gentlemanly by
Theodore Parker, of Boston, on Tuesday even
ing next, in the Tabernacle. Young aspirants
will do well to attend, for muoh of importance
may be learned on this subject, in a very short
space of time. Ladies may also learn to judge
correctly between a true Gentleman and a mere
pretender. Tickets only a shilling, for that
whioh will be worth eight times the amount. Go
to the Tabernacle on Tuesday evening next, at
o’clock, and hear a People’s Lecture.
The Carpet Stork— Hiram Anderson,
99 Bowery, has opened the Spring Campaign in
his business with a tremendous stock of rioh and
durable carpetings, both of domestic and foreign
manufacture. This gentleman will, of course,
outstrip all competition, as usual, by his (extra
ordinary low prices, while his rapid sales, small
as his profits may he, must nett him a handsome
sum in the course of the year. We advise all
who are in want of carpetings just to visit this
store and examine the goods and the par cos at
which they are offered. It is altogether unne
cessary to advise anybody to buy after they
have examined his stock and prices.
Hats in Broadway. —We see that
Meiro has been enlarging and improving his
premises on the corner of Broadway and Canal
street, so as to be able to accommodate his in
creasing custom. His spring style of hats go off
rapidly in the new store, and the customer now
gets a chance to try on the hat before ho pur
chases. Before the enlargement this was hardly
possible, in consequence of the number who were
at all times there.
Good Pictures. —Daguerreotype estab
lishments are so numerous in this city, find the
claims to superiority are so vehemently urged by
the several proprietors, that we feel we are doing
our readers a service, by advising such :%s want
a perfect likeness and a glorious work of to
go to Whitohuist’s magnificent rooms, 349 Broad
way. His pictures have never been surpassed,
and his gallery contains the largest and best col
lection ©f pictures ever exhibited in Ameiica.
Hudson River Building Association.
—This Association, which has been organ izedhy
some of the most influential citizens of fcbio Fifth
ward, is to hold a public meeting to-:morrow
night. Those who desire to participate in the
benefits of this feature of Savings Associations,
oannot find a more worthy institution tjian this
in which to invest their funds.
Napoleon After the Battle of Wa
terloo.—This master work of modern art, by
Paul Delaroshe, which has been exhibited for
the last two years in Europe to over half a mil
lion of people, will shortly be open to aur citi
zens at Stuyyesant Institute.
CORRESPONDENCE.
Paris, F<b. 26, 1862.
DIFFICULTIES IN FROSPEC'IVE.
A government which has nothing bit the arbitrary
will of its leaders to goide its conduct cannot fail to
fall into a state of anarchy. Every ipeoial agent of
its power imprints upon it the mark) of his personal
character. His mode of tyranny is always in har
mony with his own disposition. Smh is the c»« M »t
present in France under the sway of Louis Napoleon.
The dictator find* the difficulties that he hi* imposed
upon himself by his assumption of absrtute power,
daily increasing. He believed after tie success of
his coup d'etat, that France was prepar'd to kneel be
fore him and that its future governhent would be
mere child’s Yet three months haveuot passed away
since he violated the Constitution 1® had sworn to
preserve, and he already has convincing proof that
his future path will not be strewn with roses—he may
meet with flowers here and there but oftener he will
find his path obstructed by thorny and even the flow
ers he may meet with will often bit conceal the long
sharp thorn that lies hidden beneath.
The elections that came ©ff last Sunday were not
so favorable to the dictator as he bought, and hoped
they would have been. The government was obliged
to adopt candidates who were hosile to its interests,
because it was impossible to prosire the election of
those whom it would have ohos/n. The journals of
the government have already ieued their thunder
against arf idea of opposition These miserable
flatterers say that there canmt possibly be any
division in the Legislature, because Francs entire
has given carte blanche to the will «f Prince Louis Na
poleon by its unanimous vote of the 20th December
This absurd reasoning, however,foes not prevent the
opposition from growing every Jay more powerful,
and without averting or believiig that it will be re
ally very numerous in the Legislative body, ( am
quite sure it will be sufficiently to to materially im
pede th* progress of the absolute and tyrannical
power usurped by the dictator.
I frequently see a gentleman vho has an opportu
nity cf being well informed on ».l that passes in the
home of our French Solouque, >nd I can assure my
readers that his domestic happiness resembles some
thing Jhat of a criminal who seiks to Stitt 9 the voice
of conscience by listening only to that of vice and
passion. Our illustrious Soiouqie acknowledges him
self that he has opened a dangfrous path, but as he
is a fatalist, even to madness, he says that in acting
thus he is only fulfilling his de.tiny. Under such a
system of belief, there would be no guilty personages
in the world : there would be only fhe victims of im
perative necessity, since each persem would only act
as the Supreme Being willed that he should act.
OFFICIAL COSTUMES.
The Government tailors are very busy in preparing
the official uniforms. The costume of the Senators
was originally intended to be of black velvet, but it
has since been decided that they shall be of blue
cloth, profusely ornamented vith gold. The Presi
dent has not yet decided whether be will enrol a
guard of honor, as it was said was his intention.
However, his military household is already as nume
rous as was that of his uncle, and it is estimated that
the uniforms and accoutrements of this host of sword
bearers will cost the public treasury no less a sum
than S4O 000.
Notwithstanding all the official bulletins of the Dic
tator have been dated from the Palace of the Tuile
ries, he still continues to reside at the Elyeee. On
Tuesday last, he gave a grand < fiicial Ball at tho Tu
ileries. which was attended by 5,000 persons. I have
heard it said by thos3 who are admitted, as much »s
he allows any one to be, into his confidence, that he
has expressed his determination not to take up his
abode at the Tuileries, unless with the title of Empe*
roi of France, and after having received, from the
hands of the Pope, the Imperial crown ; but if he
waits too long, I doubt of his success, although alter
the immense services he has rendered to the Holy
Father, the successor of Saint Peter surely cannct
refuse to crown him in the Cathedral of Notre Dame
de Paris.
THE REPUBLICANS STILL ALIVE.
I should not forget to mention that the republican
electors of the capital have adopted a list of candi
dates which proves that the republican party is far
from being dead. On this list are Dupont (de I’Eure);
Q eneral Lamoriciere (exiled) ; General Cavaignac ;
Carnot (exiled) Qoudchaux ; Bixio ; Eugene Sue ;
an d Ferdinand Lasteyrie. 't’here is no likelihood that
these candidates will be elected, but they will obtain
a great number of votes. The Government shows its
alarm by the violent attacks it is constantly making
against the republican party In its infamous journals.
Justice obliges me to speak favorably however on
one measure which the government haa adopted con
cerning the Bagnios, to which criminals punished
with hard labor are condemned. These bagnios situ
ated in our princijalfea ports, have ever been
the most wretched sinks ofiniquity and human deg
radation. Criminals of all hitherto been
collected in these horrible places’, and compelled to
come continually in contact, by which means those
who were least guilty and who might have redeemed
their characters, had opportunity been offered to
them, have in a short time become hardened crimi
nals, and ready for any decree of guilt if again turned
loose upon society. Shortly, thanks to this wise
measure, there will be no more bagnios in France ; the
criminals who filled them have already been trans
ported in large numbers to Cayenne, and the remain
der will not be long before they are on their way to
this new penitential colony. Henceforth it is this
place that criminals condemned to hard labor will be
sent to purge their crimes away. I repeat, this is a
wise measure, and whenever the President acts with
so much judgement and so beneficially to the country
as he has done in this one respect, I shall consider it
my duty to speak favorably of him, much aa I dis
like-nay abhor, his general principles. I should al
so add that the number of political prisoners sent to
Cayenne, is considerably on the decrease. Public
opinion has compelled Louis Napoleon to mollify in
some degree the barbarous system of political trans
portation. On the 24 th ,of this month, the moniteur
of W’obo francs to author of a discovery which
shall rchder the Voltaic battery applicable to the me
chanical, medical, physical, industrial, and scientific
arts. The contest will be open for five years and the
learned men of all nations will be admitted to contend
for the prize. This decree will merit the approbation
of all persons who desire the benefit of the great hu
man family.
THE DECREE ON THE PRESS.
This new law on the press has been badly received
by all the intelligent classes. It places the indepen
dant journals in a very unpleasant position, more
particularly in the provinces, and a well founded hope
is gaining ground that the oppressive decree will not
have along existence.
THE CARNIVAL.
The Carnival has ended in the calendar ; liut if it
is understood by this that the varied pleasures, the
wildgayety, sights, balls, and amusement have ceased,
I would inform my readers that the carnival never is
at an end in Paris.
The famous procession of the hoeuf gras which I
mentioned in my last letter, was not so brilliant an
affair as it ordinarily is. It is true that the unusual
inclemency of the weather contributed, in a great
degree to this result. Mardi gras , which was on
Tuesday last, and is the name of the last day of the
Carnival, was also the anniversary of the revolution
of February, and a great number of citizens visited
the place de la Bastile to deposit wreaths of flowers
and branches of laurel at the foot of the monument
which has been raised on this memorable spot, to the
memory of the heroes of July and February. Thl fl
patriotic demonstration was prevented by the police
and soldiers who were stationed on the spot. Thus
it is that Louis Napoleon respects the revolution
which re-opened the doors of France to him, and
raised him to the Presidential chair.
NO PROSPECT OF WAR.
I understand that there has been much talk in the
United States, of the probability of war between
France and other European powers. The reason why
I have not alluded to it before, is because I did not
believe it was in earnest. War is not so popular iu
these days ; tbe people want work and bread, and
the government is so little inclined for war that it
has declared officially, by means of its journals, that
all the rumors that have been circulated to that ef
fect, have not the slightest foundation, and I assure
you that in this instance I believe them to speak the
truth, and to be in earnest.
THE LAWYERS OF PARIS.
A great change has taken place in the physique of
the Parisian lawyers. Of late years they have dis
carded the universal black coat, put aside the white
cravat, and attired themselves after the fashion of
other citizens, even in some instances omitting to
wear the toga in court Many went so far as to sport
a moustache, and prided themselves not a little on
the acquisition of this, to them, novel ornament of
the upper lip. But the judges of the Supreme Court
have come to a determination to tolerate this system
no longer, and the black coat, the white cravat, and
the other paraphernalia, has resumed its place. Even
the cherished moustache;has been shorn off. as unfitt
ed to adorn tbe lips of those who aim to charm with
their oratory the temple of Themis.
The sacrifice has been great, especially among the
young advocates, and It is said that many of them
shed tears of regret for the loss of the cherished,
glossy black tufts of hair. The wives of married ad
vocates have not been less sensible of the painful
sacrifice than have their dear husbands, aud the
Charivari has reaped a harvest of caricatures in con
sequence of this metamorphosis.
The lOrrttes of paris.
I have often epofcen in my letters of the singular
character of the Lorettes of Paris, and have several
times portrayed the little faux pas of which they are
so susceptible. It is but just, therefore, that I should
recount a good action which was recently done by a
party of them who were •at a Casino , or ball, where
these girls meet with their lovers. One of the em
ployees of the establishment while triming a chande
lier, fell and.hurt himself very severely, fracturing
his limbs and cutting himself badly with the glass.
When the accident happened, the lorettes fled, fright
ened from the room. But they soon returned and
lent their aid to bandage the wounds of the unfortu
nate man with their handkerchiefs, and some of them
after procuring a litter, determined to accompany him
to his lodgings in order to quiet the fears of his wife
and to afford such aid as was necessary. When they
reached the poor man’s house, they found bis wife
was sick in bed, and though it was winter, there was
no fire in the grate, and no wood in the house—in fact,
his family was in the utmost state of destitution, as
he had only been casually employed at the Casino
The two Jqrettes who had gone on this charitable er
rand wept over the misery they saw, and giving such
immediate relief as they were able, hurried back to
the Casino Their return was hailed with joy, and a
dance was proposed in which all were to join ; but in
stead of so doing, one of them mounted the orchestra
and told the sad story of the scene she had lately wit
nessed to the rest. So pathetically did she tell her
tale, that all the females were in tsars Seizing the
opportunity she took a hat and went round the room
soliciting charity for the poor unfortunates, and mo
ney was freely given to the whole amount that they
possessed ; and when they bad no more money, they,
several of them, cast into the hat the jewels which
ornamented their dresses. Within one hour after
the accident, the whole of this charitable donation
was in the bands of the unfortunate couple for whose
benefit it had been collected, and they wept tears of
joy and of gratitude to their generous benefactresses.
Such actions have always their weight in the balance
of the Great Judge of all hearts. I have just heard
that it is intended to get up a World’s Fair in Paris,
in 1863 K.
The Sunday Times and the Irish#
To the Editor .-—For many years having been a con
stant reader of the dally and Sunday newspapers pub
lished In New York, and having fora length of time
closely observed the course adopted by each with re
gard to a large portion of cur population, the adopted
Irish citizens, I regret to say, that in numerous instan
ces, the manner in which some of the papers, deriving
no inconsiderable sum from this class, speak of them,
is anything but generous ; and it is not without re
gret I have to class among the number the Sunday
Ti mes, a journal whoso columns, under the manage
ment of its late respected editor, Major Noah, were
not filled with bigotted trash, cant, and hyperbole.
Ever since the demise of the Major the paper has
lacked its former spirit and be»uty. but yet it has not
so far degenerated as not to prove a passable family
organ, if it were only a little more charitably edited.
The cause of my complaint is simply this : —The Times
cn every possible occasion, comes down with poisoned
arrow on all individual* not exactly Am«xicau. but
more especially the Irish, frrm the poor, helpless
servant maid, who ha* no defender but her honesty,
nor fortune but her industry, no friends but her two
hands,—to the still more wretched and and penniless
creator*- who, through necessity is compelled to leave
hla fll-governed but beautiful country, to an
asylum in a strange and foreign land. Filled with
the most ennobling impulses, burning with enthusi
asm at the glorious idea of having planted his feet on
the land which, from his infancy, he has been taught
to reverence and love as the fountain of liberty, his
character is entirely underrated. He comes not to
your land to be an incubus, but to assist in building
up the mighty fabric. He stoops to commit no crim
inal offence ; he seeks for work, and failing in this
for the time being, he asks tor bread. And where is
his crime in so doing ? Where the nefarious act in
asking for food in the midst of a superabundance.
Yet the Timet thinks otherwise. That philanthropic
journal of Sunday last, in an article headed "Mendi
cancy states that it l ‘is becoming a regular profes
sion, pervading all classes, from the foreign patriot,
(an ungenerous out at Kossuth) who asks for mil
lions in the name of his father-land ” down* to the in
corrigible loafer who assaults you in the street with the
Irish brogue and scurrility, andffus sturdy wife who lavish
es all her stock of Catholic invocations for blessings on your
heretic head, all for the sake of a Copper /”
An admirable falsehood —and worthy of that appro
priate mark of punctuation, an admiration. It is an
undeniable fact that there are no more industrious
and hard working people in the United States, than
are the Irish ; but. yet, it may sometimes happen,
that som* few poor creatures may he obliged to ask,
before they have procured, or cm procure emplyment,
during an inclement and dreadful season, alms ; yet
the Sunday Times editor, wituall the sang froid char
acteristic of hi use If would have you believe that the
Olty is swarmed with these ‘incorrigible Irish loafers,’*
whilst he takes a slap at those who are not loafers,
but who indulge themselves in “Catholic Evoca
tions but lest the 7Vines’ editor might imagine I
was one ©f such, I must confess to him that I am not,
though, if I were, I could not see a bit of harm in it,
—being desirous of giving to all parties “feeedom ot
conscience.” *why does not the Times, being so much
opposed to foreign fashion, spin u* a yarn* about
• German loafers.” and German gutter-gropers, whose
operations are so offensive to sight and smell, every
morning ? Bnt, no ; that bait would not take, the
prtjudioe rests on the other side—and hence the ne
cessity for the stab.
Or why does the Times gives to its readers, weekly,
five or six columns of an Irish story, from the pen of
a gifted Irishman, when its editor cannot see why we
should tolerate anything Irish, much less copy them
As for myself I care nt where any human being is
born, or what profession he follpws, so long as it is an
honest one, and he is an honest man. The unfortu
nate Irishman leaves his home, carrying with him his
love, his friendship, and his supevstitions ; he believes
on his arrival, that all are glad to see him ; he re
count* the tales of his infancy, the pranks of his
boyhood, and the feats of his manhood, to all who
will listen, little dreaming that bis narratives are to
b»» turned into ridicule, by less worthy men. who can
not appreciate the man, nor the custom of his coun
try. He speaks with pride of tho ‘ Green Isle” of his
nativity, and, like the Roman, weeps over the fall of
his beautiful country. Still more does he feel the
pang when surrounded by strangers, many of whom
look upon bun not as an ordinary human being, but
merely as an Irishman,—and calling to memory the
words of the poet
“’Tis distance lends enchantment to the view,
And robes the mountain in its azure hue,”
he longs again, to see the “daisy chid hills” of his na
tive land, and ting the ‘ wild strains” of his “child
hood’s happy hours.”
The Times concludes its article on “Mendicancy”
by warning all good people to “ button up their pock
ets when solicited by a respectable loosing gentle
man, with a bald head, a wooden leg, and a blue coat,”
and winds up its dealings with that individual thus :
'• Three days ago we intended to rebuff him with the
insurance that we had no change—not having less
than a tea dollar bill? ‘ I will change it,* if you will
allow me,’ said the Villain. We were inclined to hu
mor the fellow’s Impudence, and handed an X to him.
With the utmost coolness he examined its character,
slowly pulled a roll of notes from his pocket, and with
a profusion of thanks, handed us nine dollars seveh
shillings, including two coppers !”
Pray, does not the above savor of the “ Barber ”-
ous ? If the X was not a counterfeit, there is, un
doubtedly, one thing certain which is, that the whole
article, from commencement to end, is.
Trusting you will excuse me for taking up so much
of your spaa-* and lime, and hoping you will continue
to advocate, a* you have always done, the ciusc of
the oppresecl, and that the Times' man may find more
fitting subjects on which.to rentlm spem. than poor
s Tint maids, or helpless emigrants*
I beg to remain,

B th of the Opera troupe* are dispersed. A portion
of the Astor Place party left yesterday for New Or

“Artist’s Union” have returned from Boston, and
have separated. Most of this party are engaged with
Marti of Havana for the coming season.
Mr. Bibeelu's Quartette Soiree on Saturday even
ing last was as delightful as it was successful. We
have no room to particularize, but Mr. E has our
most especial thanks for the quartette by Hies, (in
which, by the way, Mr. Wollenhaupt greatly distin
guished himself) and for tho glorious C Minor Quar
tette of Beethoven’s. Are we soon to have another
of these delightful evenings ?
Mr. Braham had a well filled house to his second
Concert on Monday evening last. We regret that we
were unable to attend and speak more at length
about it.
At Brougham's, we are to have a little taste of Eng
lish Opera on Monday evening. “La Gazza Ladra”
in its English dress is to be the opening Opera, with
Madame de Mahourettes as Frima Donna and Mr.
Alleyne as first Tenor. Madame de M. is a lady of

our warmest wishes for success in this new sphere she
has chosen for herself.
Madame Anna Thillon, the prettiest, most piquant
and cleverest of Prime Donne, is to appear to-morrow
evening at Niblo’s, as “ Catarina” in Auber’s Opera
of the “ Crown Diamonds.” Her merits in this and
similar Operas are already so well known as scarcely
to need encomiums from us, to secure her fully as
crowded bouses as she tad when here before, or as
she recently had in Boston and Philadelphia.

Mias Jkanir Reynoldson, gave a concert on Tuesday
evening at Bleeker Building. As usual with her con
carta, the artists whose names were on the bill to rs!
aiat her, were not there. Why is thia always the case
at these concerts ? Is it because she is a lone woman
that these tricks are constantly practised at her ex
pense ? If so we do not envy the gentlemen the dis
truction which their conduct gives them. The con
cert however, passed off to the full satisfaction of the
audience, which was quite a respectable ore,
of numbers. Miss Drummond was loudly applauded,
though we must say that we could not see why. This
young lady has a good voice and with proper train
ing she might become a vocalist of more than ordina
ry merit. But she has no control over her voice now,
and in her best efforts the harmony is entirely de
stroyed by this detect. Of Miss Reynoldeon’s singing
we have bo often spoken that there is nothing mere
to be said. She seems to improve at every concert.
The audience would never tire with her singing. The
only fault that the most fastidious could find with
her concerts, is, that she does not introduce a suffi
cient number of new songs. This hint, we think
might be profitably acted on. She gives another con
cert on Tuesday evening at the same place.
Mr. Leach announces a “Classic Concert,” to come

that delighted the crowds during the week.
Mrs. Sinclair attempted a Dramatic and Poetical
Reading on Friday night at Metropolitan Hall,in
which we are sorry to have to say, she completely
failed. The bouse was crowded with a fashionable
audience, who appeared to feel deeply for her. No
person of sound judgement could ever have advised
her to such a step, and to us it is strange that she
should thus risk all her reputation in an undertaking
that required so much effort. She was not even able
to conclude the undertaking. Mr. Yandenhoff was
compelled to conclude the reading which the Lady

on Monday.
Mr. Nickinson and his daughter have returned to

The distinguished and elegant poet
Thomas Moore, died at Sloperton Cottage, Eng

year. It is painful to add, that for some time
previously, the witoty and accomplished Tom
Moore, the friend of Byron and the companion
and associate of every brilliant genius which has
appeared in our day, has been in a state border
ing on mental imbecility. The lyrical produc
tions of this exquisite writer are too well known
to require remark or eulogy. He was one of the
great lights of the century, and his name will be
indissolubly connected with the illustrious de
parted in the world of letters.

THE CITY AND SUBURBS.
Singular Case of Bigamy in Brook
ltn.-Impohtan t Decision or the law or Mar
riaoe.—Caution to both Men and Women.— There
is a very prevalent ignorance in relation to some of the
most important points of law connected with such ca*es
as the following—w.e mean an ignorance among the peo
ple—that a little enlightenment would do a great good
for. During the past winter, a very dashing refreshment,
saloon haa been kept up in Biooklyn, in Fulton street
opposite High, called the “Shakspoare;” its front cornice
being surmoun ed by a row of gas-lamps, with elegant
astral glasses, in the style of tho Broadway Theatre.
The place was kept by a young man named David Orr,
aud he seemed to thrive and make money. He lived with
a woman who passed for his wife, and by whom ha had
two children. It now appears that there was never any
religious, legal, or any other kind of ceremony between
the parties ; but that they lived in that way simply by
mutual consent. About the beginning of last January,
Mr. David Orr conceived a violent amour toward a young
woman named Watkins, which she seems to have re
spaded to. They agreed to get married; although Orr
told hep of the relation between himself and the lady
with whom he was up to that time living. Ho stated,
however, that he was unmarried, and still at liberty to
take a wile, with whom the conjugal tie (as he declared)
would be legitimate. As the same time, as some difficulty
was to be feared from tho relations or friends of -Miss
Watkins, it was arranged that the twain should go to
Philadelphia and get married. Hobokenwas firstnamed
but for some reason given up. The parti.es left Brooklyn*
staid a lew nights in New York, and then went on to
Philadelphia, where the ceremony of marriage was pet
formed on the 17th of January last. Thus he summarily
deserted the wife (for so she must be called) with whom
he had been living two years, and, as far aa known, left
her to shift for herself with her and his children; although
it dots not appear that? the second lady was any ways
extra-particular in her r<quirements towards her new
spouse. In a short time Mr. Orr and the l&dy returned
to Brooklyn; and in about a week Orr'was arretted on
a charge of bigamy. The trial has been on, Thursday ami
Friday last, before H. A. Moore, the County Judge, and
Justices Stillwell and Soo k t, at the City Hall, Brooklyn
On the tide of the prosecution, the following particulars
were put forward, in the opening address of the attorney
for tho people, and from testimony: that Orr practically
took Margaret Cleary as his wife on aud ffter January 1,
1819, in Boston ; that he lived with her, and by,herhad
two children, now in Brooklyn: that he hired premises
for him Self and this woman as his wife and children as
he stated ; that he ordered and paid for goods to be sent
to his wife ; that he had introduced her to several par
ties as his wife, aud none of the witnesses ever heard or
believed anything to the contrary: that she was a good
ami attentive wife, ami au affectionate mother. Dr. J.
Cochran testified attending Mrs. Orr in January last,
when she was confined; that Orr appeared in great grirf
at h-r suffering; that he exiled her Mrs. Orr, and his
wife. Elizabeth Watkins, (or Mrs. Orr 2d.,) being called
upon the stand, testified that she had boon acquainted
with tho accused about three months before they were
married : that she had heard ho was a married man, but
he had always told her that he was not married to the
woman he was living with; he had promised to marry
her, aud that on the 11th January last she went to New
Yoik to meet him by appointment, and that on tho 17th
she went to Philadelphia with him, whore they were
married. She produced the marriage certificate. She
Slid that they went to Philadelphia to be married be
cause her parents were opposed to the match, and it was
to avoid this opposition the consented. That shortly
after their marriage they returned to this city.—
Mr. Garrison, Orr’s counsel, here rose and argued that
this admission (of the offence having been committed in
Philadelphia,) quashed the case, and put it out of the
power of this court to try it. He demanded the opinion
of the court. The attorney for the people offered rebut
ting argument and contended othenviso; that as good as
marriage might be inferrocHTom tho fact that tho witness
went to New York on the 14th of January aqd did not pro
ceed to Philadelphia until the 17th, In the meanwhile it
might be fairly inferred they were living together as man
and wife. If the principle was allowed as laid down by
the counsel for the defence, any married libertine might
take a wqman to Hoboken, there go through tb© marriage
ceremony, and return to this State with impunity, be
cause the offence was committed in New Jersey. Judge
Moore, after some delay, announced the opinion of the
court. lie himself admitted the position of the counsel
for the defence, and thought tho case out of the power of
this court; but his two associates thought otherwise,
and they being a majority, that must stand as the opinion
of the court Miss Watkins was then called again, and
testified that she and Orr, before they were married, had
gone once or twice to New York; we spoke ou the 14th
of getting married the next day, but I objected, as my
friends would object to my marriage with him; remained
the night of the 14th at a hotel in the Bowery. Question.
—How did you pass tho night of tho 14th, alone or iu
company with another? Objected to by the counsel for
the defence as tending to disgrace and criminate herself.
Objection overruled. Answer.—l didn’t pass the night
alone. Question—Did you occupy the same room with
Orr? The witness declined answering, and the question
w-as not pressed. She and Orr were married at St. Peter’s
church, Philadelphia, by the Rev. Mr. Heckel; were mar
ried according to tho form of the Episcopal church; I
,took him as my husband for better or for worse; he
agreed to be my husband in the presence of the minister;
my father came ou to Philadelphia and brought us home;
we were going to remain : we were not to consider our
selves married while in New York: I returned under the
impression that the marriage by a clergyman made mo
his wife; don’t know that ho over told me he was married
in the presence of others; said that ho was not married
to his former wife; remained from the 16th to the 19th in
Philadelphia; returned to Brooklyn and lived at 23>£
Johnson street: lived in Philadelphia and Brooklyn as
man and wife until about a week alterwards, when Orr
was arrested. On the part of the accused, Isaac Orr, his
brother,testified as follows: Knows Margaret (the first
Mrs. Orr,) for about three months. The rbunsel for the
defence offered to show that Margaret had admitted in
presence of witness that she was never married, and that
long antecedent to the marriage with Eliza Watkins, On*
had said in the presence of Margaret that he was never
married, and she did not deny it. Objected to by the
counsel for the prosecution, and sustained by the court.
Cross*ex’d.—Knows that Margaret and his brother lived
together; has lived with them about six or seven weeks.
Summing up, the attorney for the prisoner, Mr. Garri- !
son, addressed the jury upon tho law of marriage, and
argued that according to that law, Orr was not proved
to have ever been married to Margaret Cleary; that even
if he was married, it was alone in the power of the State
of Pennsylvania to protecute for the offence, not the
State of New r York. His address occupied au hour and
a half. The prosecuting attorney, Mr. MoCne, contro
verted the argument of the counsel on the other side,
as to the law of marriage. He reviewed the evidence
given on the part of tho prosecution; and then read and
explained the law appertaining ther to, and contended
that there was to all intents and purposes a marriage in
fact with Margaret Cleary. In conclusion, he drew the
attention of the jury to the effect of their verdict; if it
was acquittal, it would be the cause of sending this wo
man, ...... nan w. u „„ th t „ wife 00ul(i loi „ ut into th „
world with her character blastea, as neing the mistress
of a man, and would bastardize her children, sc that they
could never reel themselves as otners around them.—
Judge Moore, in charging the jury, pointed out what
constituted marriage in this State, and said that wit
nesses to a marriage, or writing thereon, w.it not neces
sary, the declarations of the parties themselves were suffi
cient; and if they (the jury) were satisfied that such a
marriage existed between the accused and Margaret
Cleary, then the crime was proved in accordance with
the law. As to this State having power over an offence
committed in Pennsylvania; he differed with his col
leagues. but notwithstanding it was- the jury’s duty to
take the decision of his associates aa the opinion of the
whole, it was the decision of tho Court. Tho jury, upon
retiring, were out but a few moments, when they re
turned with a verdict of guilty: which upon the proper
ceremony, was declared their unanimous verdict. Orr
remains in jail, sentence not having been yet pro
nounced. His counsel, Samuel Garrison, is preparing a
a bill of exceptions, on the ground of the court in Brook
lyn not having jurisdiction, but principally because
where there has not, in the first case, been an actual
contract of marriage, the entering into a second connec
tion is not enough to constitute bigamy. This theory is
doubtless upon high authority; and it is likely that it
will be entertained in the ultimate determination of this
case.
Complaints) f an Injured Husband
On Friday evening, the usual routine of the Tombs Po
lice Court was diversified by the following ludicrous
scene. At six o’clock in the evening, two men were
brought into the Court—the one dressed, the other in his
shirt sleeves. The gentleman dressed was in charge of a
policeman, and his companion out of breath from his
anxiety to have him incarcerated, preferred the charge
of seducing his wile against him. Mr. Stewart, the
Clerk of the Court, bogged of the gentleman to take the
matter coolly, and inform him of the circumstances of
the case. Ho then stated that having suspicions of his
wife’s fidelity, he returned homo from business that even
ing rather unexpectedly, and found, after having had
some trouble to get in, the gentleman in charge installed
in his apartments. He, under those circumstances,
flung a pitcher at his head, but being, as he stated, unfor
tunate enough to miss him, he called a polioen.au and
gave him in charge. Mr. Stewart said that he unfortu
nately could give him no redress, and that if he wanted
to obtain satisfaction he should apply in the civil courts.
“Very well,” said the enraged husband, “will you give
me leave to take out my own satisfaction ?” And suit
ing the action to the words, was just about to inflict a
personal assault on the man, as the policeman interfered,
and Mr. Stewart informed him that the police authori
ties had no power to permit any breach of the peaoe ;
but that if this man intruded himself again in his house,
ho might hurry him out with a broomstick or poker; but
he must not commit any assault, but might hurry him
out a little. The prisoner, who seemed to take the mat
ter rather quietly, said that it was all a misconception.
In the first instance, the woman was not the wife of the
gentleman, and secondly, he bad been sitting in the rock
ing chair all the time he had been there, and was quite
innocent of any peccadillos charged against him. The
gentleman preferring the charge came home, he said, in a
state of excitement, and having flung the pitcher at his
head by way of a preface, concluded by giving him in
charge for a crime of which, according to his own show
ing, he was perfectly guiltless. Mr. Stewart informed
the gentleman, that in his opinion, he was a thorough
scoundrel, and that ho was sorry he qould not give him
what he deserved. Ho then cleared the Court, and the
orowd, attracted by the scene, anxious as all crowds are,
to display their impartiality, divided equally, and ap
plauded the plaintiff and defendant on their way down
Centre street.
Resurrectionists Detected— On last
Wednesday evening, as a small fishing craft was dis
charging her cargo at the foot cf Twenty-flfth-st., E. R.,
suspicion was attached to her, and on an officer proceed
ing on board, he found two tierces—one marked “C. New
ton, Worcester. Mass.—the other “I French, Woodstock,
Vt.” On opening them they were found to contain the
dead bodies of a woman and three men; also, twelve
shrowds such as are used on Randall’s Island. The cap
tain on seeing the officer, became rather excited, and of
fered a large bribe to be allowed to go away. While the
search was going on, a cartman named Elias E. Cain,
drove up and appearing surprised at the orowd around
the vessel, some person informed him of what bad been
discovered. He then stated th it he had conveyed four
such tierces to the New Haven Railroad Depot. A mes
senger being dispatched to the depot to ascertain the truth
of this statement, and finding it false, 'the cartman was
also arrested. A person stated to be a respectable doctor
was also arrested, and gave his name as Joseph Rivers,
this, however, is supposed to he a false name. The Coro
ner held an inquest on the bodies, and a verdict was re
tured by the jury, advising him to hold the captain for
further examination, but stated that in all probability
the deceased came naturally by their death, but that
evidence was not produced to show whence they had been
taken on the jury were three of the physiciahs attached
to Belview Hospital. The yatoh in which the bodies were
found, is the property of a man named Petts, whose fath
er or some other relative is, as we understand, warder in
the Deaf and Dumb Asylum on the Island. It is pretty
certain that the yacht has been in the habit of making
several trips from the Island to Twenty-first-st, and it is
therefore fair to argue that a large business has been
transacted-
How the Aldermen Live. —The worthy
City Fathers are entitled to eight suppers a month, and
the curious tax-payer may like to see what the cost of
these luxuries is. The reporter of the Tribune supplies
the following bill of items for February, and the sum
total for January, which we give as one of the progressive
items of the times. It will bo seen that the Aldermen are
“some" on oysters and cigars.

The item of “help" needs explanation. Is this the ex
pense of “h.elping” the Aldermen to get home after their
foastings, or is it the cost of assistance to “help” them
eat these enormous quantities of provisions ? If the
first is the correct supposition, we have no fault to find,
but if it should turn out that the city was charged for
assistance to eat up the feasts it provided for its Alder
men, then we object, as we are perfectly satisfied that
the reporters would willingly perform that service for
the city, without cost.
Third Act of the Forrest Case— Our
citizens are, we believe, destined always to have the
grand tragedy or comedy of the Forrest case before their
eyes. Wo thought that thirty days (for which the jury
received a shilling a man) was quite sufficient: hut that
was scarce over; when Mr. Willis appeared, demanding,
not reparation for his injured character, but for his in
jured bact, and now that being set aiide, we have Mr.
Wm. M. Doty dragged on the stage by Mr. Forrest. It
will be remembered that Mr. Doty swore, in the Divorce
Case between Mr. Forrest and his wife, that in the month
of Juno, 1843, he witnessed Mr. Forrest and Miss Clifton
occupying the same state room on board the boat to AI
bany, during her night trip. He afterwards mended hie
evidence and said it was 1844, not IH4I. By this evident
the issue of the case, it is contended, was materially in
fluenced : and Mr. Forrest now comes forward, backed
by the evidence of Mr. Eddy, an actor by profession, who
