All the members oi the council we re present. Sevea archbishops, thirty-eight bishops, and one hundred and twenty-two priests of orders and doctors of divinity, seventy four ecclesiastics, four monks, and three mitred abbots were present. The procession was formed at the archbishop's residence, and moved round to the cathedral.— The immense gathering was estimated at forty thousand, on the streets and house tops aod every available point, to view the procession.— The cathedral was packed to its utmost. Ofls hundred vocal and instrumental performers participated in the music in the church, whieh -was very grand. Mozart's twelfth mass was eung. Archbishop Purcell, of Cincinnati, celebrated the pontiiical°High Mass. Arehbisbop McClos-key.|of NeW York, preached a sermon from the words "Glorious things are spoken of the City of God."

'Piquant i&eveiations of lew  Society.  [From the New York News, Sept. 19.]  The latest phase of fashionable financiering in New York has brought to light the existence of a coterie of enterprising young gentlemen, who have organized themselves into a matrimonial club, with the avowed object of securing rich wives for the members of the club. The range of this matrimonial organization is not confined to any special quarter of the metropo: lis, but extends Its. operations from New England to the far West.  Those members of the club, who, in their daily avocations or in society, are introduced to, or hear mentioned, the name of young ladies of wealth, pursue minute inquiries as to age and residence; whether an orphan, or if with parents, whether mother or father, or both; are living ; the number of brothers and sisters, wealth of parents, and the amount of the daughter's expected portion. The result of these inquiries is carefully noted in the bookj o!' ihe Secretary somewhat after this fashion:  v f.-V. U'.^ ^.' ^  WH. S. ilAVIS,  litiu- Hock.

SiODKl OF SBLHUTIOS. j  Eauh new name which is added to the 'roll is drawn for by lottery among those members of the club who are not provided with marriageable female acquaintances. After a member of the organization has selected his intended partner, secured -a proper introduction, and^cultivated a reasonable acquaiuiyice, he introduces into hev household one or two of his friends, who, in their turn, introduce other members of the society, wbo visit the family occasionally. The purport of their visit is to extol the character and capacit.es of their friend whose attentions to the "flower of the fiook ,?  soon becomes marked. The old lady and gentlemen becomes befuddled by officious interference of their many friends, their consent is obtained and the match,it "nade.  rilB YOU.NO ladies' MATaiMONIAl/fcOrKRIES. , The pursuit of jrioh marriage partners is| no- confined exclusively to the young men who 1  desire to better their pecuniary condition; the daughters of Eve also pursue the fortunate subject of Maunnon with an avidity that brooks no restraint. This is secured by the formation of clulis or coteries composed exclusively of youn,g ladies, and who elect their feminine olficers, wbo dfrect the movements of the club. These coteries are usually designated by some term of endear jng character, as the "L'Amour Coterie," the 1  "Dove Coterie." Their sessions are held at the residences of the most fashionable members of the association once a week during the winter and spring months, and monthly picnics are the order of the season during the summer and autumn.  Tne invitations to their unions, as they are called, are issued in the name of the presideu' tvess and amanuensis, and addressed to cQ eligble young men with whom the members are acquainted.

Political exciteincnt is more intense here thaa for many years. Last night there were riotous proceedings in various parts of the city. The Democrats held a general mass meetiug in Broad street, and were not molested. Subsequently a portion of them advanced towards the Republican headquarters, against which threats had bfeen made during the day, and were attacked by a crowd of people armed with clubs and put to flight. One man,was shot.  .Later.-—At one o'clock this morning a Democratic organization' called " White Boys in Blue," made a demonstration against the head-quapers'ot' th£ " Republican Soldier's Assoeia-tion " The police came on the ground and were pelted with bricks and fired at. They then drew their revolvers and drove their assailaata several squares, after which the city became quiet.  Njew Yobk, Oct. 7. The steamer George Cromwell, from New Orleans, arrived to-day, having on board the crow ond passengers of the steamer Daniel Webster. She was from this port for Mobile, and encountered a heavy gale, causing her to founder off the coast of Florida, October 3, and the Cromwell took off all her passengers and crew whilo the Webster was sinking. No lives lost.  The establishment of Voght & Co., porceloiii dealers, on Crosby street, v/as destroyed by fire last night; loss, $200,000. The two lower Btoriea occupied by C. Godfre Gunther, were damaged to the amount of $50,000. The fire communi* cated to St, Patrick's church, the Catholic cathedral, which was also destroyed. Several valuable pictures w;ere saved, but others, and the organ were lost.] Loss $100,000. The cathedral was built in 1811.  It is stated, that John Mitchell from Paris, is declining to have any further connection x?l&. Jas. Stephens and his Fenian movement. It eg said Stephens has chaptered a large steamer lately, for operations^ of a trans-Atlantic character.  | Louisville, Oct. 7. The new steamer Robert E. Lee left for Orleans this evening, with a fine load of freight and a cabin full of passengers. A splendid banquet was given to the passengers and invited guests, before the departure of the boat.  George C. Simpson, general agent for Wood, Eddy & Co.'s lottery, committed suicide fey shooting. Domestic difficulties ie assigned as ihe cause.  Directly after dark two men with masks jumped into the espress car attached to the afternoon train hence to Indianapolis, and robbed the Adams^ Express Company's way safe of several thousand dollars, and - pitched tho through safe off the train, but overlooked tho key'.' One of the robbers succeeded in getliag off the train, but was not able to penetrate the larger safe before it recovered by the messenger.
