From 'he N Y. 'i'ribu lle ,^r6 ===
At about 7 o clqck lost mpht the steamship
Arctic was telegraphed from Neversink, not
by actual sight ofher.but by her smoke, which
was risible at least an hour before her dark
hull loomed above the wares of the Atlantic.
_ The fact that the great song queen, Henriette
Sontag, was expected, was the cause of an
unusual excitement in musical and artistical
circles, and many of the profession were soon
astir to wait upon the distinguished guest, al
though she had most emphatically declined
anything in the way of a public reception.
A large crowd assembled at the Collins
Wharf as early ta 9 o'clock, and continued to
increase until the arrival of the ship. At lUj
o'clock, two bright flashes announced the
steamer's arrival off Governor's Island, and
soon after a bright rocket, making a fiery el
lipse in the sky and showering a rain of red
sturs in its descent, proclaimed that the great
Star was on board.
As soon as the vessel was in hail of the pier,
inquiries fur the fair singer were sent ford) in
volleys and answered in broadsides, and some
of the more enthusiastic sent up a round of
hearty cheers.
On board thesteamer, we found the expected
party to consist of Madame Sonlag, the Coun
tess Rossi, her husband Count Rossi, Signor
Pozzilini, tenor, from the Imperial Opera ; and
Monsieur Eckert, conductor, from the Italian
Ope o, Paris. The ship had encountered a
rather boisterous passage, but the party had
been in eood health and were then in fine spi
rits, anticipating many pleasant scenes in the
land so new to them.
The Countess Rossi was habited in a light
colored silk, and wore a heavy shawl, as if the
sharp airs of our bay had proved too much for
her. She wore a thick veil to shade her fea
tures from the gaze of the curious crowd. At
about 111 o'clock the party got ashore, and
took possession of a splendid carriage, ex»
pressly provided (as we are informed) for the
Countess by some enthusiastic admirer, at a
cost of $1000. They drove immediately and
as privately as possible to the Union place
Hotel, where apartments had been previously
engaged. They arrived at 12 o'clock aud at
once retired to rest.
We learn that Madame Sontag was most
highly appreciated und esteemed by the pas
sengers, nearly all of whom maue heracquain
tance during the voyage. Just before the ves
sel reached our waters, the party gave a most
excellent concert, the proceeds of which went
to the purses of the gallant tars who manage
the noble steamer. We had a memorandum
of this concert, but have mislaid it. The per
formance is enthusiastically praised by those
who heard it. Yesterday, Madame Sonlag
sang at dirine service on hoard the ship.
Among other testimonials ofesteem received
while on the voyage, we notice the following
letter addressed to Maduine S. ou behalf of the
passengers :
U. S. Mail Steamship Arctic, )
September 4, 1852. $
The passengers of the Arctic are unwilling
to separate without expressing to Madame
Sontag their respect and admiration for her
character and talents, their appreciation of her
kindness and liberality in appropriating the
proceeds ot her Concert to the crew of the
ship, and their earnest wishes for her health,
happiness and success during her sojourn in
It is the agreeable duty of the undersigned
committee to express the*e feelings,and we be
lieve that in adopting nnd repeating the senti
ment so enthusiastically received this day by
the whole of the passengers, we embody the
opinions and wishes of ull whom we represent.
"Madame Sontag—The mistress of song !
May her career be as brilliant as she deserves.
Her best friends and her warmest admirers
can ask for her no more.'"
With most sincere respect nnd esteem,
Edw'd Miller,
E. Geo. Squihe, > Committee.

Henriette Sontag wag born tn Coblentz on
the 13th of May, 1805. Her parents were ac
tors, and her futher was considered, in South
ern Germany, as a thoughtful and excellent
representative of comic characters—charac
ters which often require for their levity more
really true gravity than the highest walks of
tragedy. A recent German publication of
high authority says that "the efiect of Son
tag's first appearance upon the European siuge
especially in Paris, was almost wonderful.—
Besides the extraordinary purity, clearness
nnd attractiveness of her voice, and iis rare
flexibility, she possessed a lightness, neatness
and elegance of utterance quite unparalleled.
If Pasta surpassed her in strength and full
ness of expression, and Malibran in universali
ty; if Catalani washer superior iu facility and
greatness of style, yet Sontag stands far before
them in that refined delicacy of art which
springs only from peifect cultivation. She
does not astonish as much by ths imposing
strength of her tonps, but she magically en
chants us by their flute-like passages which
she for the most pait pioduces with most per
fect articulation, moving her hearers chiefly
by the delicious quality of simple singing.—
1 she be not wonderfully great in heroic and
the tragic, she is unparalleled in the senti
inentul and the playful, and in general in that
which rather touches the heart than theJudg
inent of her hearers.
With the exception of those above named
(to whom may probably be added Jenny Lind.)
it may be said that no songstress or may
soon appear who can come near to Sontag id
the exquisite taßte and originally of ber
In 1830, she closed her dramatic career at
Berlin, in the Semirami* of Rossini. The en
thusiasm, the excitement, the almost madness
of the public on this occasion, is indescribable.
Every one felt that Art hud suflered a great loss
in the retiring of this magnificent talent.
Fiom Berlin she went to Kusaia, singing at St.
Petersburg!! nnd Moscow with wonderfol suc
cess and effect. She then returned to the ISe
therlatids and sang at the Hague for the last
time, in concerts only. Soon after this her
previously private consumated marriage with
the Count ltoasi was made public, and she
thenceforward practiced ber art only in private
mid by herself; first with her husband at the
Hague, and then for n considerable time to
Franklort-am-Main. In 1534, she went with
her husband to Naples, whence the Count ex
pected logo as Sardinian Charge des Affaiies
to iiio Janeiro; he »«i n tact banished into
honorable exile. Under all circumstances,
however, they have lived in perfect domestic
During 18-13-49, Count Rossi lost all his

at Naoluco for some time. Here, according

the greatest atrocities. They say that the re
bellion would soon be subdued, "but we do not
see any good reason for such a supposition
It was reported that an extra session of Con
gress would be called, expressly to act iu re
lation to these insurrections.
The Guadalajara movement nppenrs to be
gaining strength. The insurgents hod collect
ed a force of 1,500 men. The ayuntnmiento
of the city had recognized Davila as the legi
timate Governor, and many of the minor
towns had followed the example of the capi
tal. The insurgents took £3.000 from the
Mint, for which they very considerately gave
a receipt in full. The former authorities have
called on the Federal Government for aid, re
presenting that should this not be given, all
would be loaf. Davila was busy organizing
a force of six battalions of inluntry. two
regiment- of cavalry, nnd a battery ol twei.%
ty~>ne pieces of artillery.
The Mazntlan prouunciamiento has not been
suppressed. The insurrectionists now demand
that Mazatlan be separated from the rstate of
Sinuloa and declared a federal district. The
paper blockade of Ar sta does not seem to
have produced much effect. It was reported
that the important port of Tepic was about to
second the pronunciamicnto of Mazatlan.
Business at Acapulco was very dull.
The Camanches in Durango had attacked
and completely routed a party of forty Mex

Wanted, Fresh Superlatives.—Under
this head, the New York Times has the fol
lowing :
Professor Upson, in his address before tha
late Teachers' Convention at Ehniru, uttered
r timely rebuke of the universal use of extra
vagant language. We do nothing by halves,
and do not begin to be satisfied when we de
scribe the whole, if we are to believe what
we daily hear from veracious friends, we must
conclude that all creation is done up in pocket
packages for our use, and that scores of eterni
ties can be crowded into every hour of the day.
In figures we outdo the Hebrews; iu hyper
bole we shame all the Orientals. We describe
a moderate hill in language that would fitly
treutof Mont Blanc; we apeak of two or three
level vacant lots in the city, in terms fit for a
prairie—ofj the ripples on a forty leet canal in
words that would accommodate the billows ot
oceans—of a moderate East wind as a tornado
—of a sudden squall sufficient to snap a Balm
of Gileadin the door-yard, as a perfect hurri
cane. It never rains but it pours; it is never
dry but everything is parched. A cataract
always leaps from u dizzy height in a profound
abyss. A mountain always toieert to heaven ;
a chasm opens into immeasurable depths. All
our autumnal woods are gorgeous; our land
scapes inexpressibly beautiful.
Our wives are never weary but they are
tired to death, never warm but they roast, nev
er chilly but they ure frozen. If they have a
scratch on the finger their hands are all raw.—
If they have a pain it is deathly. If there is
a spot on our linen, they tell us we are covered
with ink, and a soiled dress is utterly ruined—
When n friend goes home with us to try pot
iuck, if the fire has been out once it has ueen
out fortv times; if the beef is brown it is burnt
to a cinder; if the soup is too savory it is salt
as brine.
This extravagant waste of words bankrupts
us whenever really extraordinary circum
stances demand descripiion. We have no
words todescribe Niagara with,after we have
written of a mill-dam. The superlatives due
to the Mississippi, we have lavished on trou
streams. We have exhausted all our term*
expr< ssive of valor, in telling of the skirmish,
and the main battle literally '-beggars de
scription." Degrees of comparison are obso
lete. Mere positives are unfashionable. Ad
dison and Irving exhausted all that our ink
supplied. Let lite Ink-makers take the hint
and add a new simple. The comparatives re«
tain their original significance iietter, but the
superlatives are exhausiless and feeble. We
need a new supply. \3f Wanted, one thous
and new and vigorous adjectives, ol the super
lative degree; one hundred for the description
of natural scenery; one hundred for political
opponents to abuse each other with; one hun
dred of the adulatory sort, for the use of office
seekers, and tbe balance for household words.
None but thoee bursting with the spirit of the
age need be offered. We want adjectives that,
applied to cold, will make simple ice burn ia
comparison; applied to heat will make com
mon fire cold; to beauty, will make a fright of
Venus. We want adjectives of space, that
will surround and embrace all creation; and of
rpeed, that will leave lightning a century be
A new business—rat catching—has been
commenced in Cincinnati, by a Mr. Temper

efit to housewives. Mr. T. uses uo instrument
