NEW YORK HERALD. Smw f ork, Tnraday, Au|iut '43, 184*4. HIGHLY IMPORTAN V FROM WASHINGTON. Th. Tr<?t)- with (irr*l Itritaln llnllli*?L The intelligence which we give our redden in this day's paper, is the most important which i.u been communicated to the American public since the close of the Revolutionary war, and ihe e. 'a blishinent of Ame icaa Iudeptndance. On Sa ur day Est the Senate ratified the i.ew treaty wiiii Great Britain, at nine o'clock in ihe evening. rJ he vote w is 39 to 9 The injunction of secrecy has nui been removed; therefore we cannot yet publish the treaty in detail; but sufficient i* already known lo sati fy every person that it settles, on the most hon or.ible principles, ull the difficult questions that w ere Lit open, or ill it grew up, since the great treaty <>1 Independence m 1797. This great work has been accomplished by I.md Asiburton and John Tyler'a administration, und will torm a memorable eia lathe history ot" Engl.mil anJ the Called States. A copy of the Treaty will ij published as soon as received; in the meantime let us rejoice and be glad. It seems that a strong opposition was made to this treaty, originating in Mr. B -.iton and the friends of Mr. Van Buren in the Senate. On the contrary, John C. Calhoun, with that high spirit of patriotism which always distinguish' a man of real genius and talent, came out nobly and supported the Treaty, on the same principles that lie advocated the last war. As soon as the injunet m ot 9ecr*cy shall have been removed, the speeches and vote, will be published, and it will then be seen who were the true friends of the republic and who were not. Ia the meantime, it is very evident that to John Tyler, und to his peculiar independent relation to both tits great parties, are we indebted for the happy conjuncture of circumstanced that have brought tln.-> treaty to a satisfactory conclusion. Had General Harrison lived, tt never could have been done. Party spirit, ruuning high, would have prevented its success. Mr. Webster, as the Secretary of titme. has done well; but he could have succeeded in nothing, without the " vantage ground" given Lim by the peculiar pjsition of the President, independent of both parties, "suspending tne animation" ol the whins on one side, and excittua the hoDi-s and fears of the democrats on the other, by the noble exercise of the conservative power of the constitution. The You no Democracy on the Battery.?Th* "young democracy" met again yesterday afternoon on the Battery and in Castle Garden, and continued the agitation of tiie singular movement recently begun in the Park, that looks towards some ven curious event* in the democratic party hereafter. A r'ch and full account of their proceedings will be found in this day's paper. Tne tone, temper, and character of the resolutions and speeches are unique. They breathe a decid d hostility to the "old clo'" party of office beggir-, h-aded by Noah?the same to certain office holders of this city?besides a very warm manifestation towards u recomposition of the Cabinet, and an in dependent support to John Tyler. Mike WalsV.speech is the most naive and original thing we evci read. Mike, evidently, as a speaker, beats Bo* as a writer all to pieces. Arrival of Lord Ashburton.?Lord Ashburton and fuite arrived yeatarday uftsrnoon at 15 o'clock, by the Camden and Amboy route, and took up In? brief abode in the apartments which had been prepared for him at the Astor House. James Buchanan, E-q;, her Majesty's Consul, attended his Lord" ship and accompanied him to the hotel. We nUo heard that James G. King, now principal financint in thiscountry, and n capital chap in several point . si ice the uhcicatiou ot Mr Uiddle, was also in uit nd.tnce. Willi uis horses and carriage. Wc understand that Lord Ashburton may remain here u day or two?visit Boston?and then purtak of several splendid /elf*, gelling up to celebrate tli negociator and ratificatorof thegr-at treaty betwe -n England and the fTiited Slutes. First, there will be a most splendid dinner given hint by the merchantof New York at the Astor House. The arrangementare nearly ready. Secondly, h most splendid fflt will be given him at the chateau of James G. Kin". Esq , on the Hoboken Heights, near Weelnwken, bo celebrated in the beautiful poetry of Hailed; And, thirdly, Jonathan Goodhue will also give hi? Li r.lship a toirlt. Lord Ash burton will probably g"t though all these nfbiire in ten days, and be able to return ;o England in the Warspite in a fortnight Su, the next fortnight will be a great time in New York. N. B.?If his Lordship can spare a couple of days, we would auvise hint to make a trip to Rockaway now in the prime of the season, and take a cool mouthful of tea air. Six months in Washington, ui this season, are enough to kill an ordinary man?i dozen mouthfuls of Rockaway air would reviv him. Rockaway?We have several letters on hand deser ptive of the guetieB at Rockaway, hut whive no room for them to-day. A tew words re pauant. Durina the last few days, there have been nearly fear h .ndred visitors at that delightful place?some of them the very pink of fashion and beauty Kinong the late at rivals was the celebrated Gener.

On Saturday and Sunday last, Mr. Crau stoun and hts faintly bad actually to give up flu i, own room, down to the very barber's shop, whicl was fitted up at night as a bed room. Yesterday about one hundred ieft for the city, to return agai.i on Friday and S iturday next, on which occasion th grand bill of the season will be given. On Saturday last, the first bull wus given, and a great many of the Saratoga fashionables who were there, pronounced it the most delicious assembly they have en/oyed this season. Cranstoun gave them an elegant sapper of snipes and eofl-shell crabs, w ith plenty of in tsir and champagne. The next hall will be the^greatest vet. Visitors had better go early, otherwise nil the Hpartments will be occupied, and they will have to come out on the baach and take a snooze in the bathing houses. List Sabbath there were also religious services m us uiowiiij room?pcnorruea oy tne ivev. ivir Foroes, of St. Luke's Church.

Billy Bowlegs, principal chief from Sam Jones and the Prophet's band, in the South, who were sent out from Cedar Keys on the 7th in?t. rc turned two days after, with Octiarehe and Tigertail, I of the Creek band, and several other Indians, all ot whom expressed much pleasure at the prospect ol peace. Thay also expressed a readiness to comply with the tortus of Col. Worth, which have for their object the insuring of the permanent peace and tranquility of every portisn of the territory. The news ta very gratifying, and leads us to entertain the moat sanguine hopes of un immediate cessation of all hostilities.

William S. Mundy, Thomas Whelan, Chronopher Gurger, William Riley, ->olomou Canfield, Augustus St. John. John Ketchum, acacTaais*. J. C Ker, T. B. Earle, I'homas McSpadden, Andrew Nosh it. The following preamble nnd resolutions were 'hen presented by E. E. Camp, und received by -ltout upon shout of applause and approbation:? Whereat, William Henry Harrison and John Tyler vet e elected to the ottiee* of President und Vice President it the United States hv tlie nnlitif.il nnrtv formerly oallr I t>V,leral, but more recently denominated the Whig party ; aid whereas by the death of the said Harrison, the said John Tyler has succeeded according to the provisions of hu Constitution of the United States to the functions of the chief executive officer ol the Union, and in the execution of which duties he has given strong and repeated proofs that he is a true disciple of the old Je-iiersonitm school of politicians?Now, therefore, we, who are here assembled to express our free ami unbiassed opinions?w<, a ho claim to be unwavcriug, untrammelled Democrat , taking into consideration the alarming ami critical situation of the country, brought about by the factious an I ruinous proceedings of the Clay Whigs in both housesi I ougress, feel it to he our imperativ e duty to come lor-varcl and express our decide t and deliberate opinions tpon the aspect of atfairs in the present collision between lie President and the Clay Whigs, and therelore piesent the following resolutions for the consideration of this meeting i? Resolved, That we highly approreof the honest, fearless, and patriotic conduct of John Tyler, in nobly resisting the destructive measures brought forward hi Congress by the reckless and violent purtizans of Henry Clay, and we sincerely believe the present prostration and discomfiture of the federal party, to have been mainly produced by the defeat of their darling measure? a Mammoth Ba tk, alias a National Curse. Resolved, '1 hat as democrats in the most pure and comprehensive sense of the word, we hold it not only to be our right, hut an imperative duly to openly support with>ut consulting any one, every man who shall prove by liis acts, that he is an hone-st and disinterested friend of our principlesResolved, That we have too high an opinion of our party and our principles, to believe that either the one or the other, can he utfecteil otherwii" than advantageously, by the support of honest men and honest measures. Resolved, That in supporting John Tyler, we do it solely as democrats, us a part and portion of the great demoratio party, lor his democratic acts; and that we shall he ?ti ids J entirely in that support by bis future conduct, and will not be deterred from expressing our sentiments by rny of the secret movements ol political cliques or inrigtiing demagogues. Resolved, That a change in soma of the members of he present cabinet, anil a removal of some of the rtiif tidei who hold imhlic nlace under his administration ? 'tut not through hi* gift?would add much to liin already inquired popularity, anil tend to convince the Democracy if the nation that in the administration of Ilia government te is determined that none hut men of pure political prin iples shall b'-sele ted as public agents. Resolved, That we have no faith or confidence in tim e >ld political hacks ana renegades, who, like the weatlur ock, are always ready for a change, and who, likede.i 1 isli, float with the stream, after the current of public pillion has been termed by maitly spirits, who judge men >y their acts, and who are independent enough to express hat opinion u it hoot looking for is aril to count the chances hat vs ill full to their share, il success attend their ctforti. Let John Tyler beware of such new friends, us they are uit wolves in sheep's clothing. Resolved, That John Tyler must rely for support from he honest hearts and sound heads of tnc "subterranean" Democrats of this country, and not from those cool, caleua iug and intriguing political demagogues, who pander 0 till men's tastes, and who are the blood-suckers an 1 ampires of the nation's best blood and treasure. Resolved, That a copy of these proceedings be forward d to John Tyler, President of the United States, and thst hey be published in the Madisonian, Globe, Albany Argus, Richmond F.nquirer, ana tlr? free and independent press of this city. The resolutions having been unanimously adopted, cries were made for Shale rot' the Sixth, when tie appeared upon the stage, and said? Fellow-citizens 1 feel bound to obey your call, not rum any personal feeling on my part, but as a freeman utd a democrat, having the interest and welfare of my oiiulry at hear.; I feel that I owe it to my country to step forward on this glorious occasion. It is not my Intention o pro-ent to y ou an historical or theoretical harangue to xcite y our approbation or applause, but 1 shall dwell for 1 lew short moments upon the occasion that has now drought us together. It is but two short years since the t .s o great parties of this country were rallied against each ther in political hostility, and during which conflict the Democracy wero defeated ; liut in such n manner and by such means that no man who now hear* the sound of my voice can doubt the fact that the victory was won by base misrepresentation, and fraud piled upon fraud. The crythen was?"give us a change"?and wc will give you two dollars a-day, and roast beef; and now we have the fraud and misrepresentation most eloquently developed throughout our land among the xillcring of our laboring poor. It was thou denied that the rechartering of a national bank was in issue, and speaker*. sjiouteri, nnj Tippecanoe songsters, all cried, ahouted. and sung that such an idea waa not to bedreamed >1. (Laughter.) Their victory came, and with it the hydra monied monster showed his horns ; but, thanks to the firmness, the patriotism, the joli'ical honesty of J >!in T\ ler, the bull w as taken by the head and crushed 0 earth to rise no more. (Shouts of applause.) Let us, therefore, render thanks to the man; aiul grateful must he every American heart, and grateful am I, to the Ruler ot all?who has n guardian eye to the welfare of this flee uul happy country, that at such a timo?at such a momcnous crisis?an honest Whig was found who had the cou1 age to stretch forth his arm and stay this doom U]>en ns, en nation, (Cheers.) Yes,'Gentlemen, this proud nation, the refuge of oppression ol the old and new world, the only d.ic " where freedom can be said to rest in quiet and repose, this nation. Gentlemen, was about to be shackli-d with the manacles that have held Europe in submission. This party, vith nlltheir previous professionsof love for the dear peoile, worn atiuui to introduce a specimen of monarchy, in lie shape of monied Kings, and taxation by a tariir, when lohn Tyler rescued it from their grasp and dominion. (Loud cheers.) such was their object, and likcthc slaves if Europe, weshould have been debased to the condition >f hewers of wood and drawers of water?like them we should have been the mere subjects ol a mom yod and Moated aristocracy. I speak, gentlemen, as a democrat of the old wigwam, and as one who believes that the best currency ot a free land, is the currency of fraemen. (Applause.) John Tyler has not only vetoed a United States Bank twice in succession, but he has also stayed the mad scheme of a distribution ol the public domain nmong pn. litis a gimblersand heedless sjicculators, connecta 1 as 1 was with n taritl that was only calculated to mukwu rich nan richer and a poor man |>oorer. In these acslp he has tcted in accordance with democratic principleJ^and he, therefore, ilererves as he must receive, the application ol every correct mind who desires to ilo justice to his fellow man. And lor thus doing his duty, he has been belabored ind badgered bv the Clay whigs.'as the Winebago would gore a wild butlalo, but thank Ood his honesty and independence have overcome all their assaults." (Cheer*.) .Vith John Tyler himself I have nothing to do. mv rally ug place is among the hard listed democracy of this emporium. and ns long as he advocates and sus ains measures that they approve of, none will tie so base as not 10 do liim honor for his honest and tearless conduct. The conduct ol the wliigs has f-lly proved the assertion made previous to their ascendency, hat they could not carry on this government for two years; and it una scarcely pawed err tnev in tneir maddened course are now publicly threatening the life of the ('resident, and daily assimilating his public acta to the career of a Caligula, an Arnold, and a Judas! (Crinofoli, oh!) Let John Tjlcr purine an honest and feurless tourae, and he will And tha democrae v of this nation ready ai hi? si le to do Hun honor?they will itipport him in time of need with the name energy, the same lire, the inme real, that they would support the bright flag of their country in the hour of battle. (Shouts of applause, and three cheers for Shaler.) After Mr Shaler had concluded, there were loud cries for " Walsh"?" Mike Walsh,"Wc. Mr. Tari.oa then rose and laid If ever there was occasion for the demortury of this country to rejoice, it was now. We have met to do honor to a man whom we nave ieen standing like a rock of adamant, w hilst an o-ran of anarchy anil malice have been heating against that rock. And it is our duty to say to him as w as said by one of old, better than we are, " Well done, thou good ind faithful servant." (Here there was a cry in the crowd, of " How about Sfntr |B mk,?'-) We any that he has laid down the right principle!, and has done well for hit country. And I w ant 110 better voucher lor it than he abuse ofthe whigs ; and the remark of the old Virginian, that hu was what lie alwavt bad been " honest John Tyler.'" (Cheerti Now,'gen'lemen, we are told that an honeit man is the noblest work of God. And if John Tyler is not that noblest woik.he's to near a relation 0 him that yon can't tell the difference. (Cheers.) The monied oligarchy w as put iu the scale against him, and he has kicked them down to perdition (C-hpers) We are |ioor honest, hard-fitted democrat!, and we support him. tV e shall watch him with a jsalous eye, nnd if he *up|iorU us weshall support htm. But if he goes on at he has done, wc, the dem icracy, shall never have cause to regret this meeting, or the passage of these retolutions. We know no hird party , there are only two parties in this city, and there are none hut democrats herr. 1 suppose that the bankrupt "Courier and Enquirer" will say to-morrow that the meeting consisted of only a few loafers w ith the notorious Mike Walsh at their head. Well let it lay to And tint sneer from such a source will he glory enough much more than any- praise from such a Quarter ? (Cheert. Here r. rnilor in the crowd Rt the foot of the platdrm at tire, cried out, " Why y ou don't mean to ay that John Tyler is a good democrat, do you V' (Ltttghier ) Mr- T. B Earlr, houte carpenter, then rose and said : ?Gentlemen, I am unused to public speaking, hut I tcei bound to give my meed of praise to honest tohnTylei. V man like him can't be accuse 1 of treason to a party that eser lis I any principle!. (Cheert) Among the de1 ' T* ofthe constitution we have hal to rank the nanu . | , A Washington, Jeliarson, Madison, and Jackson; and now we ate bound to enrol the intme of John Tyler in the uuf bright Utt. The w hig party had made greet preparation lor an oatensn e war on hun a lights, when the knell f liariiton struck a d?alb blow to their hopes. lie was a good man, hut amiseiuMe I id statesman lu hu place the Almighty rsised up an holiest man in the person id John Tyler, who boldly threw himself iuto the breach; and a* au hoiieit di m?r rat, he ii deserving ot our warmest support, and he shall have it (Loud cheors ) And hi* name shall resound through every hill and valley of the Union. (Cheers.) We have met here not to celebrate the triumph of faction, but of principle. To celebrute thing* not like mountains of Cloy, seen afar oil and ladi.'.g in the distance, (great laughter,) but truth and honest' . (Cheers.) The sober second thought of the people is now reverberating through this land in the election returns. (Loud cheers) Fellow citizens, the destiny of this people is w rilteu in the great book of nations, and in that Ujok it occupies the tirsi page. (Tremendous cheers.) Be firm, be lesolule, and trust to Ood fur the result. In the words of oneof our patriots, " Truth crushed ta earth will rise again, The eternal yearsof Ciod are her's, But error, wounded, writhes in pain And dies amid her worshippers." (Loud cheers.) Here there were uproarious criea for "Walsh," " Mike Walsh," " Walsh " Michael Walsh then rose amid louilcheers and said,? I feel that 1 am quite unequal to the task of addressing y ou this evening, but yet I cannot retrain from expressing the gratification 1 feel at addressing this assembly of freemenFree-mi u in the best and purest sense of the word. Fife Irom the control of nny set of men or clique who would ride rough shod over you if they could, and farce their opinions down your throats whether you were disposed to swallow them or not. The present meeting and its occasion, are subjects that answer well for honesty and honest men. It is a new era in the history of the world, when men are free to think and judge for themselves?free lroin all the muchiuations by w Inch old party men would surround them. (Cheers') Ten years ago this thing could not have been done in any part of the United Stales, and even at this time it could be done in no other city in the Union but New York. (Cheers.) New York isiotheU. Mutes, what I'aris is lu h ranee?w Mat ancient Home was tu her vast empire?(cheers) wliat the heart is to the bod) ? (cheers) ami as she beau slow or quick, the whole Union has to keep time to her. (Loud cheers.) This being the case, is it not the duty of every man in this great city who loves honesty, and right, and truth, to come forward and help to give a free and healthy tone to public opinion ; and tj put 4 iwn the m.(arable,corrupt,' suicidal c iques t nt preside like cankers over the party they are dail\ destro) lug. (Loud cheers.) It is high time that we should anandon the wretched system which ee have been submitting to for years?receiving our political opinions as a great uiSiiy of us receive our clothes?itcond handed! (Roarsof laughter at this hit at Noah and the old do' clique.) 1 seem this movement, the commencement of a system that is going to break up every species ( midnight cliques, dietat 011, and party management in the democratic ranks. (Cheers.) And the spirit of freedom now calls on you byall you hold sacred upon earth (when treason in the garb of noisy patriotism is stalking ubroad over the land) to aid the honest patriot, John Tyler, who alone, unaided, unassisted tiut by the sincerity and convictions of his honest heart, breasted the s'orm of tyranny, treachery, and treason, and, like Sicciut Deutatus, that noble old Human, placed bis back against tlie rock of truth and integrity, and oecatne the sole shield for freedom in a most trying hour?in this her last rampart on earth?from midnight assassination. (Tremendous cheers.) I know very well, my 1'rieuds, that the parsons who advocate these doctrines, and who move in these matters, are sure to be accused ol otlice-seeking. But their accusers are some of these very old clothes men who have been in ottice ever since they whre old enough to learn roguery : and, to Judge by their impudence, consider they were specially created to till a Government ottice, and nothing else. (Cheers and roars of laughter.) But 1 submit to no auch dictation, and I hope you won't. (Cheers.) Let us come forward and indicate that the true young demo, racy of the country will pursue the path of right aud truth. (Cheers.) Never mind what thejioorold miserable doctors of the party ma) | say to you about expediency. "Expediency" is a word ! that a democrat never should make use ol. (Cheers aud great applause.) Why, these miserable old expediency democratic doctors would take the Apollo da Bclvi ucir, >MI| viumr mill >|> .....rj nuvutj llu.nv, a pair of of Chatham street breeches, and a hell crowned hat. (Tremendous cheers) And so they think ?o aid democracy by investing it in mystery and d?d nonsense. (I.oud cheering and roars of laughter.) Democracy needs none of this ! Democracy is simple and beautiful; and most beautiful in its pure and unadulterated nakedness. (Cheers.) Then, as to third party, that is talked of; there ran be no third party in this country. (Cheers.) 1 am desultory to night, because I am not well. (Cheers, and cries of "go on.") You have most of you known me. Some of you hate worked in shops with me, and some have been in other situations with nie. But you?none of you knew me guilty of a mean or a dishonest, or an interested act. (Cheers, an I cries o no, no.) And whenever a man performs a good act?no matter when or where? when he does it disinterestedly, fearlessly, and for the benefit of the human race, 1 say he ougntto be praised for it. And I say that if John Tyler does not receive the manly, vigorous, and sincere supi ort ot the young democrats when he is besieged on all sides by a ruthless gang ol scoundrels and traitors for doing his duty, that then the democracy will be wanting in their duty to bim, and thut we may look in rain in the pages of our history hereaftei to find any man performing similar noble and disinterested acts. (Great cheering.) As to the third party, there can be no such thing in this country. (Cheers.) The tupport which John Tyler will receive must corne from the young, the honest, the unndulteratod democrats. (Cheers.) Not lrotn those miserable, old, worn-out hacks of politicians, who are all the time sticking themselves a' the li. at ot every thi.ig where tliey are. not wanted, and manufacturing public opinion by the cart load, and shoving it down your throats whether you are disnosc.1 to swallow it or not. (Loud cheers and laughter.) And what is it causes these fellows to take so much upon themselves. Is it ability 1 Why, they havu't as much as would fill up a thimble. (Cheers.) Is it honesty 1 Why, tliey never had enough of it to hide the nakedness of their natural horn roguery for an hour. (Roars of laughter, and cheers.) What is there but the solitary fact, that they have lived forty or fifty years longer than any honest man svants 'cm to live. (Cheers and laughter.) And all this time they've been wearing the clothes and eating the victuals which honest men like you and me ought to have had. (Uproarious laughter and applause.) And, now, I shall advert lor a few moments to a subject which I have never troubled you with before. I mean the attacks of two or three individuals connected with the press ujiou mo. I have hitherto nbstained from noticing any thir.g against me that ever come from the ptthlic press. Because I know that there isn't a more pitiful, contemptible, degraded, corrupt, lying stinking set of scoundrels than those that are connected with the public press. (Tremendous cheers and peaD of laughter.) Gentlemen, don't misunderstand me, (turning roun<l to the reporters of the *' Herald" and " Morning Post,") the preicnt company it alwayt excepted. (Terrific cheers and laughter.) But there are two lellows in this city who have thought proper to attack me. One is a Mr. James Watson Webb He's a fellow that, unless n good many people tell lies, sold himself and his opinions to the United States Bank f >r ^ftd.OOO, which and nnother equally corrupt vogubond, who borrowed from that rotten con corn. He's a fellow that would write about temperance with a gallon of punch in his belly; write about bravery, with the marks of a cowhide sticking to his shoulders ; and write about honesty with a bribe in his pocket. A fellow thn: would sell himself to the devil, if the devil was fool enough to employ such a d?d chuckle-heaoe I booby as he is ; (Tremen dous shouts of laughter and applause.) Tite other attacks came from a fellow called William L.. Stone, (laughter,) upoor old man, and theretorc he's to be pitied. No, he's not very old neither ; hut he's brought on a premature old age * * * * * * A ftdlow that's been engaged in every species of humbug for the last twenty years, and it now known by the name ol "Old Animal Magnetism (Great cheering and laughter.) And it is fellows like these that think they have wounded and annoyed me, They trouble mc ! Why I've had more real mental and bodily pain to know where I should get mv old Mots sole 1 and heeled than these follows ever could give me in all their lives. Grew cheering, in the midst of which Mike Walsh sat down, lie rose again in about a minute, and said " Is there any oilier business before the meeting." No answer, " It's moved and seconded that we adjourn. This was carried, and the meeting adjourned in good order. The Elections.? Nothing definite yet about Indiana. In Iowa Territory there was an election about the first of the month, lor Council and members of the Legislature, (the returns of which show that scve.t democratic candidates have been elected, and six whigs. In the House there will hen democratic majority of six. These results nrp the same as last year. A majority is opposed to applicntion for admission in the Vnion. Sorry for it.?Grace lHr'ing is dying of consumption. Cuatham Tut athf. ?Ai an early hour yesterday all the seats were taken for the evening, and by the time the curtain rose, not only the inside ol the house was entirely full, hut the lobby and the street were crowded with people anxious to obtain admiltanee Hundredswere disappointed.The internal nppe,trance of the house is sii|?'rb beyond description,and i'*|<: edly elicited burst* of applause. At length the indnager appeared, and delivered an mldres* in his own liearty and winning manner. Spontaneous rounds of applause tested his deserved popularity.

TheJi'doe Advocate read the proceedingsot Saturday . Lisli. Si .claib, called by the Judge Advocate uild sworn. Judge Advocate?State what you know in relation to theliist specification of the third charge. (This charge is entitled "Disobedience of Orders.") A.?I do not recollect tbe dates specified there. I recollect the occasion of Lieutenant Johnson's landing and having his boat bilged. The next day, I think, 1 went with Captain Ringgold in his gig, where there were a large party of boats belonging to the different vassels belonging to the squadron, ail under Captain Wilkes in, his gig. When we got in, it appeared they had endeavored to land, and the natives opposed their doing so by spears and throwing pieces o! coral. After several attempts at landing, difiereut officers swimming into the surf and being driven back by the natives, Mr. Wilkes fired at one of the natives and struck him in the face. I saw the hlood run by his eye; he sat down and was washing it off in the water lium boles iu tbe coral. The other natives collected around him, and another gun was tired, 1 believe tromone of the Peacock's boats; I think there were two discharges perhaps of two barrels from the same gun, and about the same time another gun was discharged from one of the Vincenues' boats. I believe that Mr. North and Mr. Peaie were tue two persons who fired those two guns, but am not certain. At tne second discharge the native* retreated in a body, (I should not think there more than tw enty) with the exception of one man whoae Iriendi were trying to drag hnn orf ; he appeared to be wounded w ith
small shot in the breast. He appeared to be perfectly furious with ruge, and then received another charge of small shot from the Vincennes boat. He was then carried oil, unwillingly, to the bushca beyond reach of shot. These gnus were loaded, apparently with small shot; if they had been bulls they would have killed him. Alter the natives retreated to the wood, a few otiiceraand men swam through the surf and landed on the coral. I saw them hunting lor shells in the vicinity of the boat. I was under the impression thai Mr. North attempted to make some observations, but whether he succeeded or not I cannot say. I ought to mention that before Mr. Wilkes fired, large pieces of coral were thrown in his boat by the native*. Q.?How many persons were in the boats belonging to the squadron I A.?Forty or fiffv I should think. There were eight four and six oarsd boats. 1 ought to have mentioned that Mr. Wilkes endeavored to conciliate the native* through au interpreter, when 1 went in. Q.?Was any oi the party of the whites injured by the natives 1 A.?Not to my knowledge. Q.?How long did the party who landed remain on shore ' A.?Not more than ten or fifteen minutes. They were hurried oil' by Mr. Wilkes. Q ?Who was the interpreter, and where was he procured 1 A.?A man from New Zealand, who had been shipped from the United Sta'es; his name wasjJohn Sac. He did not appear to understand their language very well. We left tiie island of Clermont Tonnerre that night. Ji'dui. Advocate.?State what you know of the second specification. A I was one of the party that landed at that town.? We pulled in with all our boats. The natives were collected in large numbers and appeared to be well armed.? The first cutterol the Vincvuncs,which they hadcaptured from Mr. Knox, was hauled up on the beach partly dismantled. Mr. Wilkes sent the interpreter, perhaps two ol them, to demand that the natives should give the boat up. That was the talk. 1 do not know it of my own know, ledge. The result of this demand was, that the boat was brought down by the natives, with part of the articles that were in her. We then returned to the schooner, and Mr. Wilkes told us we would go in after dinner and burn , C . r.,lln.... ? ?- in-... *i ? h ^ lwwov iv.ibwii, vi viucuiiii^ that effect. The n stives were leaving the town in largo parties while we were at dinner. When we pulled in again, we landed without opposition, and set the town on lire. I did not know there were two towns. 1 did not sec any trees cut down. 1 saw a few hogs killed. The yam houses, in which the yams were, were burned down with the rest of the town. 1 was told by the interpreter that the > ams were good yet. The buildings were of bamboo frames, and thick thatched roofs; they made a hot fire. JttMl Advocate?State what you know of the third specification. t.r. H vMrt.rov said the accused admitted the burning of those towns. jcaoe Advocate?State whether the burning of the town at Venna Lebre took place before the attack on Malolo, and how long ? A?it took place before. I should think three or four weeks before the attack on Malolo. How far distant is the Island of Vcnna Lebrc from Malolo' A.?Mare than eighty miles, I should think. Q.?Were the yam houses at Malolo destroyed ? A.?I saw no yam houses. There were hampers of yams in the town, and I destroyed some of them myself. Q.?Did you see any dead bodies of the natives after tha route; if yea how many 1 A.?I saw dead bodies ; perhaps four or five ; the natives carried them into the houses, and I suppose they were burned. 1 saw the natives carry them into the houses while I was at the gate ol the town. li.?Do you know that any living natives perished in the (lames ' A?1 do not, sir. ?Do you know any thing in relation to the fifth apt e.ification ' A?1 do not; nor in rclatton to the sixth specification . (J.?Do you know any thing in relation to the first specification of the fourth charge, " Illegal punishment''" A.?I do not. ><? uo you Know any thing 01 the secon 1 speciucation 1 A?I do not. The Judge Advocate stated that hej would not exmine any witnesses on the third sjiecificiuion until the return of Lieut. Johnson from Washington, where he had gone to search lor documents. By the Coubt,?Did you go on shore at Clermont Tenncrre; if so, did you yourself see any wounded natives ? A?I did not go on shore, but I saw wounded natives. Q,? How came the first cutter to he cap ured, aud was eny killed or wounded on board of her 1 A?I can't tell; 1 was not present at the time of her caie ture; Mr. Knox hail charge of her, 1 believe none were killed Croat txamined by Mr. Hamilton through the Judge Advocate. if.?Have you had any difficulty with Lieut Wilkes during the cruize I A?I have. Q?How far were you from those wounded natives ? A ?Within about twenty or thirty yards, perhaps more Within gun shot, small shot. The testimony of the witness was then read over to him hy the Judge Advucatc,and at its conclusion he stated that it was his imprtttion that unless they had attacked the towns the natives would have murdered the whole of them. The Judge Advocate said as this was only as impression of the witness, it could not be stated as evidence. The Ji-Dor. Advocate proposed to read the order of Lieutenant Wilkes to Lieutenant Hudson, dated at Honolulu, 12th December, 1S10, in relation to the fifth specification of the third charge, which charges the destruction of throe towns on the Island of Upolo, one of the Navigator's group. Mr. Hamilton objected to the reading of the order, on the ground that the specification charges the order to have baen given on the lath December, 1910. Lieutenant Wilkes stute 1 that the order was dated oil the 1st December, 1840, and uot on the 1-Jth or 15th, as Lieutenant Hudson went to sea on the 3rd December. The Judge Advocate replied that he had drawn up the specification from a copy of the order, furnished him by Lieutenant Wilkes, and which copy was dated 16th December. He had the ropy among his papers on shore, and 11 it wns so misdated, he should send on to Washington to prefer another specification on the same subject, which would not be liable to this objection. Mr. Hamilton asked if the accused w as to.be threaten* 1 with the power at Washington in thia manner, whenever he objected to proceeding informal!} in his c ise. The Judge Advocate aaid that he was not certain the copv obtained from Lieutenant Wilkes was dated the " 15th," but he would ascertain when he went on shore. Lieutenant Wilkes said that the order the Judge Advo cate held in his hand was dated the 1st December, 1840, and not the Utb, as he supposed, and thatjt was the " order " referred to in the specification. Some time was spent m endeavors to decipher the date, and the Judge Advocate at last came to tne conclusion that the order was actually dated " December 1st, 1S40." Mr. Hamilton then said that Lieutenant Wilkes waived his objection* to the introduction of the order in evidence, and it was read by the Judge Advocate. The order, after giving Lieutenant Hudson various directions connected with the scientific objects of the expedition, directs him. on arriving at I'polo, to endeavor to capture the chief I'opntuno, and obtain ample justice for the murder of an American citizen on th&t I-land, and that his principal endeavours should be, in ail he done, to impress it fully upon the natives, that they cannot commit offences of this nature with impunity. The order states that much must be left by the commander to the Judgment of Lt. Hudson ; but he fielieve* that the capture of the principal chiefs,I'a and Maliotoa, should be effected, as it would doubtless lead to the surrender of the murderers, and per. haps Popatuno himself. The ordeijlurther states that hostile steps should he avoided as mueh a* jsisiiblc, as such measures would endanger the irrifice of the lives of Men under his command. The order next calls the attention of Lt. Hudson to Strong's Island, which it stated is infested by pirates and vagal>onds, wno make it a point to plunder and destroy all unarmed vessels that fall within their reach. At this plare the American brig Waverly was plundered, and her wrack now lies upon the western shore. The natives of Strong's Island, before these infa mntis scoundrels came among them, were al wavs remarkable for their friendly disposition ; therefore,a distinction slum Id he made between the natives and foreigners on that island. The removal of these rascals will he beneficial to our commerce, ns thes are a great nuisance to onr whalemen. The order further impresses on Lt. Hudson the " imperious necessity of treating with kindness" the natives whom lie might visit. Lieut. Wai.kcii, called hy the Judge Advocate anil sworn. ?State what you know of the filth specification of the third charge ? A.?Hound and grape shot, I beliave, were fired into the town of Saluafata. An armed party was landed, and proceeded to a house where it was said a chief whom we had been ordered to take had fortified himself. Not findine ?his chief, the town was burned. Most of thetrees aboil' the town were destroyed hv fire?many of them were f uu trees. The towns of Fn?iand Salslesi were afterwardi burned. There were fruit trees destroyed there. Q.?Were these acts committed in self-defence, or to rerover property?cither 1 , A.?They were not committed in self-defence. I do not j know whether any property was to l>e recovered or not. I know why they were commltti d though. ; Did the inhabitants make any resistance 1 I A.?No, sir. ^State what you know of tha sixth specification. A?I do know that hostilities were commenced a#*'' it the inhabitants of Drummond's Inland. An armed pu. ty arw lauded under the con er of a volley of musketry. The town, including the "spirit house"and a number ol canot s, were deatron d. ThU act of hostility was committed in consequence of the detention and supposed murder of a seaman belonging to the lVacock. (J.?Was, or w as not this man a deserter from the Teacock ? A.?I believe nol, sir. Q.?How did he get among the natives ! A.? 1 don't know. t^.?You have said the man w us supposed to be murdered; on what grounds was this supposition founded ! A?When we were about to return to the .hip, 1 ;;ssemhled the otiicers and crew, and discovered that John Anderson was absent. About this time, our attention w as attracted by some unusual noise among the native" a short distance from the beach, and the w omen and children dispersed in all directions. Some of the officers immediately left the beach a short distance to discover the cause of this, and soon after returned without making ai y discovery. John Anderson being still absent, 1 took two or three men and went in search ol him in one direction, and directed Mr. Davis to search in another direction. 1 passed a shert distance through the tow n, which w as en ureiy aeserteil in that quarter, ana 1 observed a body of native* approaching towards me, well armed, evidently intending an attack. Having only a email party with me, I retreated to the heac:i. On arriving at the beach, 1 saw Mr. Davis returning in another direction, pursued by a large body of armed natives, some of whom were stoning him. We immediately got afloat, and laid on our oars. The natives came down in large numbers, armed, and defying us to combat. We waited there half an hour after this, and then returned to the ship, with a firm conviction that John Anderson had been treacherously murdered. 4?Did you know when John Anderson left tour party 7 A?1 Jo not. 1 know that he was at the boat within fifteen minutes of my arrival at the beach. 1 lelt him at the boat. Q.? Were there any signs of a [struggle about the boot, or evidence of violence being committed 1 A?No, sir. An officer and half a boat's crew were left at each boat. Judge Aiivouu?You have stated you do not know w hen John Anderson w ent away ; how do you know that he did not voluntarily go aw ay 7 A.?I presume he did voluntarily leave the bout for a short time, but I havo no idea hehntended to desert. He had been in the beat a very long time, and bad had better opportunities and stronger temptations to desert, but never evinced a desire to do no. 4 ? Are these all the reasons vou had for suspecting that John Anderson did not desert, but was treacherously murdered I A?No, air. The next day there w as not a canoc u|>prone lied us from that town, although the ship was surrounded with canoes from other parts of the island. On the morning of tbe attack on the town, the natives, to (lie number of tKX) or 700, perhaps a thousand, well armed, assembled on the beach, and again defied us. Q. Had Anderson a gun and a knife with him .' A.?He had a gun, and probably a knife. 4?Did you hear any discharge of fire arms 7 A?I did not. 4 Did you not discover oil other Islands of this group white men who had deserted and lived there a long time 7 Mr. II v.milton objected, and the question was withdrawn Li. Walsks.?There was another circumstance which induced me to think Anderson was murdered. We received on hoard the ship at the Navigator's group, a man named Thomas Williams, who had in his possession a journal kept on board of un American whale ship, in which it was stated that nliout three years previously a British vessel had been wrecked on Diummond's Island, and that the captaia's wife w as then a prisoner on Drummond's Island. The whale ship then attempted to beat up to Drummond's Island and attempt a rescue, but the M ? son being late, and tbe wind ana current strong, she w as unable to do so. This story was confirmed by some of the natives who told us the woman died a short time previous. I saw a part ef a wreck on shore. Jcdge Advocate.?State what you know in relation to the lirst specification of the fourth charge. A?I know nothing; I was not on board the Vincennes at that time. Q.?Do you know any thing of Lawrence Cavenaugh and John ilarman, private marines, being punished un board the Peacock / A?1 have some recollection of their being put in irons and on short allowance for neglect of duty. Cross examined by Mr. Hamilton, through the Judge Advocate. Q.?Did vou, as commander of the expedition again n Drummond's Island, report to Lieutenant Hudson, that you had been informed by tn 1 natives of other towns that John Drtimmon d was destroyed at that Island f A ?No, sir. Q?Hid you take command of the expedition against Urumi.ioi.d's Island by Lieut Hudson. A?I did take command of the expedition under a written order from Lieut. Hudson. This order was lost in the wreck of the Peacock. If 1 recollect a right, I was ordered to endeavor to recover Anderson, if he was in existence by offering very large rewards in tobacco, considered the most costly commodity among those people. In the event of not being successful,I was to land and destroy the town. In pursuanceol this order 1 formed my division of boats in front of the town; I then advanced my own boat a consult rahle distance with Mr. Hale as interpreter, and offered a reward for the recovery of Anderson. The natives advanced from both extremes ol the beach, all well armed, with the intention of seizing my boat, and drawing hi r upon the beach; this I defeated by retreating in line with the iMiats. I then requested Mr. Puale, who was considered one of the best shots among us, to demonstrate to these natives the etticioncy of our arms. I hoped by this means to uvoid the nccisiity of putting many ofthem to death. T1 natives did not immediately retreat and I threw a rock-t into the town. Vpiestion by Judge Advocate?Did Mr. Peale demonstrate the efficiently of your arms) A.?Yes, sir, by shooting a native. Witness returned.?1 fired a scattering volley, lande 1 and formed my men, and reduced the town to aihe-. These men had nothing to oppose us hut spears, swords, and clubs. I was obligrst to drive them before us; if we had got among them the slaughter would have been immense. Q. by Coi'rt.?Had the natives assaulted you by throw - A.?Not that morning. ti. by H amii.Tom?Were the inhabitants of Drummoni'.'s Island of a w nrlike character ? A?The most so of any natives we visited. Q. by Ji'dok Advocate.?Did, or did not Lieutenant Hudson approve of all you had done T A.?He did approve it. ?Was any complaint made by Lieutenant Wilkes of the destruction of ITpolo, by Lieutenant Hudson I A.?I do not know. The evidence of the witness was then read over by the Judge Advocate, and Lieutenaut Wilkes put the following question : Q.?Did the natives deny that Anderson was a prisoner, or had been murdered 7 A.?They evaded all our inquiries, and attempted to seize my boat and draw her up on the beach. Lieutenant Hi diom, called by the Judge A dvocate and sworn. Junes: Advocate?Lieutenant Hudson, will you be fo good as to |state whether Lieutenant Wilkes approved of your proceedings and conduct at Upolo and Drummond's Island 7 A.?I reported my proceedings to him, and he never gave me any reply, one way or the other. Lieut. Wilkes said he admitted he approved of Lt. Hudson's conduct on those occasions. Junnc Advocate.?State whether yeu did or did not approve of Lt. Walker's conduct on these occasions I A.?1 approved them. Ji'Diir. Advocate?The second specification of the 4 h charge states that Lt. Wilkes caused Lt. W. L.

A.?They were so confined and so punished, for refusing to do duty or to obey orders when called to quarters. Q.?What reason did they give to you for refusing to do duty 7 A.?They said that their term of service had expired. 1 had a written report from Sergeant Stearns? The Ji*doe Advocat e objected to stating the contents of this report, as it was against a rule laid down by the Couit on Saturday?ha must produce the report itself. Q.?Did or did not Lt. Wilkes approve of this punish mrnt I A.?I do not know that I ever reported it to him. Q. By the Court?Did Lieut. Wilkes order you to confine these men in irons and give them a dozen lashes each 7 A?He did not. Cross-examined by Lieut. Wilkes, through the Judge Advocate. Q-?Were the terms of ("svenaugh and llarman's enlistmeht expired at this time 7 A.?I do not know, Q.?Did Lt. Wilkes order you to punish Cavenaugh and Harman,ordid yon do so from vour own sense ol what was required by the exigency of the case 7 a?I never received any order* Irom l-t. Wilkes. I indicted the punishment from rav own *en?e of the necessity of it. 'I'he evidence of the witness was read over by the Judos. Advocate. Mr. Hamilton stated that Sergeant Stearns was an important witness in the case, and that he had written a letter to Lieut-Wilkes, stating that he was unable to come on from Bristol, N. 11 , unless he was furnished with funds to pay his travelling expenses, Mr. H. said it was generally customary lor the lT. S. Marshals to provide tor such description of witnesses required inU. S. courts. 'I he Jt nr. f.

The publication in the Herald of Sunday, of the attempt of this man to escape justiec;by a writ of habeas corpus, has thus frustrated his designs and those of his wire pullers, for the present at least. We like that part of the no lice of his attorney that attributes the postponement of action under the writ in order ' t? give the partie] time for a settlement, if may be." If this Harott will walk, up and settle with all the confiJiug young men that ho has duped into the payment of $50 to obtain asituation as clerk in his otlice, we will guarantee to obtain good security for his release, and give him an outfit for Texas. No such good luck is looked for by those who have been deceived by him. They may be certain, however, that he will not escape trial without a previous notice through the columns of the Herald. SixnuLAR Cacse of Death.?During tho severe thunder storm of Wednesday night, a woman named Mary Jansen, of 3? Cross street, nerame much alarm -d, and was so ill in the morning as to be kept confined to her bed during the day. She continued getting worse until yesterday, when death closed her eyca. A post mortem examination was made of the l>o<!y, and the jury decided under the advice of the physician, that she died from a disease ofthe liver. What effect could tho thunder have produced upon a person laboring under such a disease? This is a question for medical men to decide. The Charoe of Arson.?John Eckert and Joseph Kaltenmark, the two German shoemakers charged with the crime of arson, 'or setting fire to the premises No 201 and 203 Delanoy street, on Wednesday night, were thoroughly examined separately on Sunday afternoon by the police clerks, and fully committed on the charge. Eckert confessed that he owned a jortion of the furniture in the. building that was set on fire, although his residence was st4ft Orchard street; and also that he had attempted to obtain an insurance of $100 upon it from the Jellerron Insurance, the Bowery and the North River Companies, but was refused by each. Kaltenmark had succeeded in obtaining an insurance for $500 at the North River Company, which more than covered all in the premises. There is no doubt the premises were set on fire. Phil Boon Settled.?Charles Rogers, of2*9 Broadway, appeared at the police yesterday, and identified the gold key advertised in the Herald as having been stolen from his store by Boon, who ottered the *3btokcn note of the StillwaterBank in payment for it, and upon being informed that it was bad, managed to steal the key before he left the store.
