the cutting -w o u ld-be 4,500 feet, or some­ thing over half a mile. The effect of cut­ ting this chanael, it is urged, would be L ; beneficial in many ways—in the drain - ■ ' aq^e 1,180 lots— the reclamation of low . fou n d s now pregnant with fever and ague, enhanced commercial advantages,and aug- ihented facilities for manufacturers and the (Aeapness of land.— Tribune. W e have not much faith in Long.Island Canals— that is to say, judging from pefience, there seems no probabilitjy-that our Island will ever be graced with one. Some twenty-five years ago, an-'attempt * was made to locate one on the south side ' of the Island, connecting the Says that ' are linked along the whole coast, from Southampton 'to (Irav^esend; it fell through * ht that time, but prettynear the same pi .?^ect was revived about three years since, ^ 'and the Legislature of 1848, finally incor- l-porated “ The Long Island Canal and - Jfnvigatiqn Company,” with a capital stock ^ o f $300,000, with the privilege of com- ‘ mencmg- operations, so' soon as\$50 ■' should be subscribed,- and paid in; but jinfortunately the stock has never .been taken, and thus the matter stands— a fail­ ure. The v\^illiamsburghcrs’ held a meet­ in g lately to consider the first-mentioned proposition ; but the German population who reside in that portion of the village, ' wherein it was proposed to locate the ‘ canal, being disinclined thereto, voted it ■ down. Hence we apprehend another fail­ ure. ( B e n e j t a l N j e w e .

Vincent, are making extensive ar­ rangements to visit Liverpool, London and Paris, in June next. They contemplate ■ mustering one hundred strong, “ rank and file.” One of Collins’ magnificent steam­ ers is to convey them to England and back. In furtherance .of this brilliant de- ■ sign, we are informed that one of the hon- • ,orary members of this corps has signified • his willingness to subscribe |5000 towards ‘ defraying the expenses attendant upon the jaunt. This is a splendid idea— a voyage to Europe in these times is but a - boliday excursion.

There seems^to-be some probability that the r project wiM»e consummated,. The Cou­ rier and Enquirer, says that it- is in the Bands of an association of gentlemen, and • that it is proposed to. locate the garden on the property of the Audubons, adjoin­ ing- Trinity Cemetery, on 155th street, aud obtain from the Legislature an act of ; incorporation, the capital to be 1300^000, in shares Of $100 each, the whole to' be under the control of a Board of Directors. flOOjOGO'of the capital is to be devoted to the purebase^'of animals, embellishment of the grounds, etc.,- while the remainder is ' to be invested, and:-the interest of it and the receipts of the garden are to be ap- - plied to the incidental expenditures, divi- - ^ends, etc. The location has a wharf on ■* the Hnfison river, and a front du the Hud­ son ‘ Bailroad, near the\ -station- bOUSd* I t contains twenty acres-of -fine , ferest afid undulating'table land. 133=* The Cholera is committing the most fearful ravages at the Island of Jamaica'.

'.John Gra- ^ham, the New York Democratic nominee ‘*Tbirl)isfcrfec Attorney. Mr. Graham had allowed himself to be exasperated l y a series of gross and insulting attacks in the Herald, and thus paid the debt. We do not approve of the proceeding— it is paying too much attention to so miserable a rep­ tile as Be.nnett,— besides that, it is in viola­ tion of law and orJ-er. Graham has been arrested and held to bail to answer for th:=‘ charge of assault and battery. |33=» Another large fire ha's‘^occurred at San Francisco, destroying^property to the amount e f a nilHiort of-dollars. |I3=* The people of Texas have conclud­ ed to accepftheIjoundary proposition, by a majority of 2000. A CiiPiTAi. I d e a .—A medical gentleman in England, has adopted a very excellent plan for answering night calls without get-, ling’ out of bed, which might be success­ fully followed in -.the-'IJnited States. Be­ neath his half door bell is the mouth-piece of a gutta percha tube, which reaches to bis bed-side. When a call is made, he is enabled by the tube to hold a conversation with the party, whoever he may be, and get up and dress him.selfj or remain snug in the blankets, as the case may warrant. Now what is to prevent our American doctors from adopting the same method ? The ex­ pense of consti’ucUng such apparatus would be trifling, and would^soon pay for itself in the additional comfort they would gain hy it.— PkiL.Post.

A-bout 300 building.s, many of them stores, were destroyed-, and some 2000 persons made houseless. Tiie Democrats have made a com- pie haul in New Jersey. They have elect­ ed their Governor, by-over 4,000’ majority, 3 out of ^‘Congressmen^ a Democratic L e g ­ islature and a U. S. Senator in place o f Mr. Miller, vVhig, (in prospective). In Massachusetts, the election has' been, very close— ihe Democrats gaining ground —Horace Mann, the Free Soil W h ig candi­ date for Congress in the 8th Di'Strict is elected, b)' Democratic votes, with a majority of 244, over the regular Whig and Demo­ cratic candidaie.s. -How does Mr. Daniel Webster feel about these time’s? . The coalition party— composod of Dem ­ ocrats and Free Soilers— have a large ma­ jority in the Legislature, which body will have to elect the Governor, no choice hav­ ing been made by the people. Gov. Briggs lacked over 7000 of a majority for re-elec­ tion. Mr. Boutwell, the Democratic nomi­ nee, will undoubtedly be elected Governor, and Stephen C.

Paris this year. She says :— “ He was dazzling with jewels, but the nasty creature is oiled daily from head to foot, and it was so disagreeable to stand near him tha-f I was obliged to plead faintness arid leave the room !”—Home Jourr.al. M a t r i m o n i a l .— The following singular advertisement appeared a few days ago, in thecolumus-of a London paper:— “ To E l­ derly Gentlemen. ■ A young lady, of highly respectatle connectionsj rather above the middfo height, of an amiable disposition, agreeable temper,etc., is df.sirous of forming matrimonial engagement with a gentle­ man (from deckled .preference) some twenty or thirty years her senior. To one of 'sen­ sible mind, whose tastes and dispositioLS resemble her own, and who could, conscien­ tiously, having no fortune of her own, offer her to share with him the re finemenls and luxuries cf life in exchange for the cheerful society and undivided affection of a confid­ ing wife, this advertisement, which is o f no common, character, may be appreciated, but it will require an explanation before; it Ean lose the truly unfeminine CRSt it must ac­ quire in the eyes of itsTreaders. It is re­ quested that no gentleman under fifty, and none'from~\klle curiosity;.w-iil respond »to this, s ince a mo'St carefal-iuvestigaiion will be made and courted, and inviolable sacre- cy imposed aud relied .on ere an interview be granted. Address, with leal name,” etc. |33=^ A%reat blast was made on the Hud­ son River Railroad last week, by which nearly 80,000 euBic feet o f solid rock were loosened. The blast, in^which 36 kegs of powder were used; was successfully set off bylfie action of a galvanic ibaitery, under direction of Professor Morse. More lh a n three miles o f telegraph wiresused iin the occasion.— THpawALDSEN.—The Scandinavian cor­ respondent of the Tribune, thus discourses cancerning the genealogy of this celebrated Danish-sculptor;— “ About the year one thousand, as well .known, the continent of America, was dis- ’’covered by the hardy and adventurous Northmen, and a temporary settlement ef­ fected in the neighborhood of Narragan.selt Bay. Then and there a boy was born, who was the first of the Caucasian race whose eyes had opened upon the light of day among the forests of the new world of the West. T h is child afterwards married and settled in Iceland,and from himThbrwaldseu was lineally descended. So the great sculp- tol was of Yankee blood, our worthy sharp­ faced and sharp minded Down-Easters are proverbial for their love of carving and cut­ ting, ana thus his taste for the chisel may be'easily and satisfactorily ‘aceounied for, by the doctrine of the hereditary transmis­ sion of character.” The Sacramento Transcript, in speaking of a soiree given by the mayor, say?, “ The mayor of the city— thedadies, «S:c., were ap-. propriately and elegantly drunk, and the pprty separated in fine cheer.’’ For the. PdairULealer. H o rse-Racing D ear P laindealer : The Editor o f the American Agriculturist in a review of the June number o f his m ag­ azine makes the following '.judicious re­ marks in speaking of Race Horses. “ I have no objection to the race nor pop­ ular trials of speed. But as things are, and have long been conducted in this country, I have-beeonie so disgtlsled’ with the very nam’e of'race.horse t h a t ! can no longer look upon the subject without prejudice.” And again “ the race courses have generally be­ come sinks of immorality, every way inju­ rious to the community and I would no sooner publish anything having a tendency to commend them than I would any other matusfactury o f clrunkard.s*” Tins’is a-stfong'lang^nage, b u l l fully en­ dorse it. I have never been in the habit of frequenting such places, but in the few cases where I have been inveigled into an attend­ ance I have witnessed such unblushing im­ morality in the shape of drunkenness, gam­ bling, betting, swearing, &c. &c , that I have almost made a vow never again to lend my countenance to such-^spoii:. N o w why should this state of things exist ? There is certainly no objection to a contest of speed -between two or more of the noblest of the Inferior’animals— there is no cruelty in it. These horses are rarely or ever ovei-tasked. And their love o f the sport and emulation is ^uite as great as their masters. Iti is evident then that the objections of the Christian must lie in this, that it .must be'an accessory o f vice, or vice would not so abound in its neighborhood. .What then must be done? It is idle to say “ do away with the sport, if sport yon call it.” It will not be done away with,-.with.a cei- tain class *(and a portion'of •that c lass,’ a highly respectable on'e,) it is at-certain sea­ son.'? all engrossing. I f therefore the evil can­ not be done away with, how can it be m ili- , gated ? I can think of but one way. let the respeetable portion of the community of .sportsmen, form-clubs among themselves and let stringent ‘ resohuions govern their conduct.— such for insl’ancea.'?iiicfollowing : 1. No person shaVl be admitted upon this coursewithout a ticket endorsed by Dire of the proprietors, who will thus be a voucher for the respectability of the holder. 2. The horses entered shall be ridden or driven by their owners. 3. No betting shall on qtnj account be allowed upon any horse entered for a race upon this course, and a violation of this rule shall be .cause sufficient to ex pel I the offender. 4. No bar shall be allowed upon this course, and gambling of all kinds shall be expressly prohibited. 5. An entrance' fee of — dollars shall be demanded of every owner entering a horse, and this moneyj after deducting the expense of the day, shall be devoted to the purchase of a ------- whlclTshalLhe bestowed upon the winner. 6. As by-the strict e n forcem entof the fore­ going rules, everything calculated to offend the most •fasiidio.us o f the fair sex, will be done away with, every-ind-ucenaent shall be made to* induce the Ladies to lend us^tbeir support upon such occasions. As Lty-so^ doing we believe that they Will pUt a gfeatfif check upon immorality thancould the most stringent resolutions. Now Messrs Editors, I am awar^ that many objeclions-oan s till be made to this mode of amusement and I am disposed to admit their force in most cases, yet assum­ ing that ihis f o lly cannot he done away with at present, do you not agree with me, that a society based upon the above resolutions would go far towards mitigating the evil, and that therefore I am entitled to some thanks as the onginator thereof?
