Thoro was no public notice ot tnu meeting nor any general knowledge or oven auspicmn of "its intended lime or place. Somebody, (wo know net who, but presume it muni have been a lineal descendant of tho foth ored limed thnt whilomo saved tho Roman capitol by cuckling, who emuloun of Ins fiimiius ancestor's renown.) had scl up banbilla calling a meeting on the Placed' Ariin.'H at noon, "to crush rebellion in the titid." lint na thr imnd tintllllo ill ceiicral did not know whore to look lor the said rebellion, nor yet to whom to look as their nil lender in the LTtishinrr proces-i .recommended, they very widely stayed a.

Belween 12 uud 1, parties of the t delu liberie" began to collect nl BoN.vci na's dratn-drink'ng establishment, at the corner of Noire Dunn nnd M'Gill Streets, nnd finally formed themselves into a men ling, secure Ironi Constitutionalist eyes, in n yard behind it which opens into-Crent St. .Tumps Street bv n Halo and door, both of which wore kept curefully shut, to the strict excl'iatun of oil except tho faithful. Till about 3 o'clock in the afternoon, ino meeting continued doggedly enough within thu safe enclosure, while groups of Con stitutionalists, somo with sticks and others without, were waiting disponed up ami down tho ftreet with exemplary patience, to see the end of it, r.ud know whether the promised Tricolor mm destined to appear or not. At about -i o'c'ock, t lie gates ol the yard wore thrown open, and a body of some 000 men and boyn, more or less, be ing wo suppose gIuioiU tho whole ol the meetinir, ruahed into tho street, but with out u Hag of any kind. At tho moment, thoro were perhaps 100 pcrson-i scattered about the street in small groups, thrrugh its whole length Upon llavu the fds dc la liberie made an immediate charge, with bticks volleys of stones, and tho discharge of ootne two or three oiatulr. Tho mob then nibhed at doublo quick time up the street towards tho Pluce d' Amies, and broke n number windows on thoir way, the ecattered groups skirmishing with their strogglera as they passed. In one of these skirmisher, at the corner of St. Francois Xavier Street, Mr T. S. Bnowr. who had previously made himself extreme ly active, met with a pretty severe thrash ing, and was carried offinto an adjoining house. But for I he interference of Messrs Gundlack, Lyons and Ashton, he would have been beaten much more severely than l.o waa.

Immediately on reaching tho Placed' Armes, and hardly ton minutun af ter leaving their place of meeting, the main body of the riotera began to make it self scared, the greator part hurrying off' up the St. Lawrence Main Street.

Phelps, Esq, an attorney and magistrate of the district, to whom he said hu had como to deliver himself, aud wont on to state n lon; incoherent account of tho abuses ho hod received at Zoar bridge ar.d Merritt'a bridge, having been robbed of six dollars in money, a pair of boote, and of being chased through a cornfield. Mr. Phelps supposing him to bo intoxi cated. referred him to Judd, a deputy slier iff. Ho went off, but soon roturned, hav inp divested himsell of most of his clothing in the street, and again went into the ofliae. of Mr. Phelps, from which he was ordered out. About half past C, no returned to Ma

Plie death of this family in the wreck of the Home, is another of those aflltclions which, awfully as it strikes even at the first glance, deepens immeasurably in inter, csl when contcmplatcd-with all its attend ant circumstances. Mr. Dosabavo had long bocn known in this city as an accorn plishcd and. eminent professor of music. Some years ago ho married tho heiress of a southern plantation, then on a visit here. Some embarrassment in Ins wile's estate, growing out of tho troublos of tho limes four or five years ago, induced him to re solvo upon returning lo his business of a musical instructor, lor tho purpose of cn. tirely extricating the property from incon venience, and settling his lady nnd the family in perfect security and independence. She horself acquiesced cheerfully in this creditable ambition of her husband, and accompanied mm, with their children, to Now York. By a system of porscvoining industry and resolute self denial, Mr. Dcs abaye had realized the sum of which it was his intonlion from the first to become pos sessed by Ins exertions, and he was return in thu steam packet, with all his chil dren, excepting one, whomjie left with ner rotations in inow xorK, to paes Ilie resl of his days in elegant repose upon his plantation.
