His Majesty than descended fro n his throne, and mixing with the deputies, he ag in addressed them as follows :? 'I am exceedingly affected at seeing the deputies eo numerous around n\e; and I again thank th'mas a father, as a man, and as a king for the sentiments they have just expressed.

The gendarmerie, aided by another detach nent of the same regiment, arrested, on the 6th it Valleraia, 11 Carlists, amongst whom were Pla i is, their chief, and three brothers and a nephew oi 7tiip.

Mr. Wushmgton Irving addressed the following perch to the Regent, when presenting to him his credentials :? " I have the henor of handing to your Highness, a* Regent of the kingdom, a letter from the Presi dent of the United States ol Ameriea, accrediting me as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to this court. In presenting you this letter, [ speak the sentiments of the President, by assuring vouofthe respect and esteem of nr. government for the Sovereign of this country, its political instituions, and tnr people, and of its sincere desire n Iriw closer the ties of friend-hip which so fortulately unite the two nations. It is my ardent wi-h hat Spain, under her present consmutiunal form ol tovertiment, and governed with fiivinetw, wisdom, ind patriotism, should enter a new era of prosperity md glory. Your Highness will permit me to express he great pleasure which I personally experienced a: >eing charged with a mission, the sole object of which shall be to strengthen the mutual aad cordial ' >od understanding existing between my country nd a nation for which I ever professed the highest esteem.

I am ikewise delighted, sir, that you should have been ihoaen to convey to me the wishes of your government." Advices from Madrid of the 8th instant mention that a commission of senators, deputies, and capi talists had met to examine two plans of loans, having for their object to raise money on the 120,00),000 reals remaining of the 160,000,000 of royal bonds < >ne of these plans proposes to give only 80,000,000 for the 120,000,000, the other but 60,000,000, or one tu!f the amount, the remainder to be paid in protested bills of the government. Barcelona was tranquil on the 9th in9tant. We find the lollowing in the Madrid correspond>nce of the 9th:? " The miniatry are actively employed in the organization of the various plans of political reform. Retorts are in circulation that some conspiracies are forming against the government, but no one appears to doubt but that the government is vigilant and trong enough to defent all the plans of the anarch ists; but the authorities have in all parts been ad vised to use the greatest vigilance, particularly on hose points from which danger is apprehended The Spanish troopa continue to concentrate on the rontiera of Portugal" The Kaat? The Augsburg Gazette of the 5th instant publish s accounts from Constantinople of the 20 h ult. They state that consi l^rable reinforcements were ihen on their march to Bagdad. Two regiments of mfantry of ihe Imperial Guard embarked for Smyrna on the 19th, under the command of Mustapbu P.-ha. They were to proceed hence to Damascus, -vhere Nedschib Psha, the new governor of BagI d, was to join them 3000 men. The Pasha of with Vleppo had also been directed to form a junction vilh ihose troops with all his disposable forces,and >nce united, the three corps were to ptarch in the lireciion of Bagdad. The two regiments of cavul y of the guard and the artillery were to proceed verlandto Samson, and thence to Bagdad through Koordistan. A renimeiit ol infantry was advancing in the same direction from Sivas, and a reginent of cavalry from Angora. The Parha of Mosul was also on his way thither at the head of 10,000 irregulars, and was to assume the command m-chief of the army. India. Bombay, June 18 ?Our latest dates from Jellalabad are of the 27th May, at which time General Pollock remained pretty much as formerly. He was ihoutto move to a new encampment, five milesfrom his previous one, which had become sickly, chiefly, is it appears, inconsequence of the multitude of dead carcasses strewed around it. The army were pretty well oft'for provisions, but without money or means of conveyance. It was generally rumored ten days since that the order for the retirement of our troope had been issued. I doubt whether Lord Ellenborough has actuilly issued the order, but I have no doubt whatever 'hat he will do so very speedily. If the priioners were once in our hands, our armies would be on their way to India without any delay. They must be so indeed, at any rate,"in the course of three months from the present time: unlets they mean to brave the horrors of another Anghan winter; this they will not dream of. There have been no movements of troops on the Bengal frontier of the Suilej si nce last month. The joint force of Generals Nott and England, now at Candahar, amounts, in all, to 10,000 men. On the 21 sf May, Kelat-i-Ghilzie was attacked by the enemy, 4,000 strong; they were bravely repulsed by the garrison, leaving 100 deud upon the field. A strong body of the enerr.v were believed to be advancing on Candahar, ana General Nott proposed to go out ana meet them about the 29ih. Major Reid's envoy had been ordered to proceed from Quettah rn Candahar, with camels ana provisions, about the 10th of June. Every tiling is quiet and peaceable in Scinde. There has been an insurrection among th Boonleelahs tribes, wjych has been put down without trouble. With this slight exception, every thing is tranquil in Hindoostan. Sir George Arthur arrived at Bombay on the 8th We have Calcutta papers to the 8th inst. A frightful hurricane swept over that part of India on the 31 and 4th inst .occasioning a considerable low of life and immense damage to the shipping. Two fine teak vessels?the Vansntart and Cornwallis? have in the course of the month been burnt at Bombay. Thry were full of cargo and iust ready tor sea, and their destruction appears to nave been the work of incendiaries Calcttta, June 8, 1843?Our armies have made hut little Iprogresa. Tne much talked-of " advance uoon Cabool has not sven tie^n ni --a now there is more Mid about the withdrawal than about the advance of our forces (>rders have been sent to Oener.,1 Pollock, at Jellulabad, und to General Nott, at Candahar, to commrnee a retrogrude movement; the arrangement* have actually been ret on loot to aiwist their return to the provuicca, by sending carriages, ?3tc , to meet .hem. Thn force at JelUlabad is straitened Tor provis ion*; it not carriage sufficient for the transport of .->U|>plirs, and :t h >a not supplies to be carried. In this emergency, a withdrawal from Afghanistan semis to be the only safe course Carriage is not procurable, the camels are dying oft'faster th in they an be replaced ; and the provision* arc consumed faster than they can be supplied To advance upon Cabool with less than two months' supplies would be a rash and impolitic proceeding, and Pollock has scarcely a sufficiency 111 store to provision his force for one month. There has been for some time past a loud cry raised in certain quarters of "On, on to the capital;" hut they who cry the loudest seem least to know what we are to do at Cabool when we get there. 1 suspect that this has greatly perplexed the sagacious understanding of the Governor General, who is far ten quick "ightod nnd ketn wttted not to see the difmine* which are hidden front ths eyes of *hallow politicians. As 1 write this it is reported that Mahommed Akt>ar Khan has gamed possession of the Bella llissar, and by a aucce>?fui rvte stirset a host of followers to htsstsridard. He had, failing in the negotiations I info which he hadenrer-d with funeral PoHnHl Ibf I :he relent of the "triti-h prironere, removed hi* capI 'iv ? from Tt zeen lo fonm place higher up in the liilla, and then proceeded to Cabonl, carrying with hi in Mayor Potiinger and Capt-iin Troup. The story run* that, having reached the capital, he proclaimed that the BniinhGovernment had plegded ihemaehrea to establish him on the throne, and that Major Pottinger had come with him in the character of a Brii e-h agent oommiaaioned to reside at the court of the t-w monarch The airatagem is aaid to have euc eeeded; the wavering Aflghan* deserted Futteh Jung, and flocked ts the standard of Akbar Khan, who i? now dominant at Cabool. Akbar, it is said, has begun to place the Bella His- , ?ar in a slate of defence, and to prepare for the resistance of a siege; but as there are no battering guns with our lorce, and we cannot venture on an advance in the present state of our commissariat, he will soon grow weary of the defensive, and begin l once more to act. Which ever way we look, whether to military operations or political negotiations, difficulties of no ordinary character present them.seves Who then can suy that in such a conjuncture the soeediest ooasib e withdrawal from the coun try, wuli honor, is not the wisest course that can be j resolved uponl When 1 speak of withdrawing with honor, I allude solely to our military reputation; for I tear that our national character for political integrity has sua- I ained a severe blow at the hands ot the late ill dated Caboolenvoy. Disclosure are now being made which 'ell a deplorable story ot fraud and duplicity, forbid11rig us ever again to speak with a clear conscience ot the perfidy ol the A Hghans. Bfar W H Macnaghten's death is now clearly shown to have been the immediate result of his own treachery. He had entered into a " plot"?the word is his own?for the hetraval of Ameen Oollah Khan, one of the chief leaders of the insurgents, with whom he himself had previously been in treaty; and it was at the conference which had tor its end the sacrifice ct this nidii, thit the envoy was,killed by Mahommed Akbar. The envoy had conspired with Mahommed ikbar Khan for the delivery into his hands ol Ameen Oolah; and it wasat their conference,which terminated by the death of Macnaghten, that the last named chief was to have been betrayed into 'lie hands of the British minister. TheKh.n, who t is now said, had no intention ol betraying hi.:ountryman, but had listened to the overtures ol the British envoy solely to lest his good faith, al ihough the proposal made to him was, as regarded his individual interests, a most advantageous one, began to reproach Mncnaghien with his dishonorable conduct, his too evident desire to over-reach the Atfghans by any diplomatic trickery, however unscrupulous it might be; and finished by ning him to Durbar, there to meet Ameen Oollah and the other assembhd chiefs, and to explain his con duct before them Akbar Khan called upon the envoy to mount a horse which had been provider for htm: the envoy refused to do so, and the Khan (rugged or pushed him forward to enforce comph nee with his orders. Macnaghten resisted, blow were exchanged, and at last Akbar a stale >1 exasperation, drew out his pistol and shut the envoy. This is the story which has now transpired, and there is every reason to believe the true one; for it rests upon the evidence of Captain Alack enzie, who whs present at the conference, and ol General Elphinstone.who was well acquainted with the events which preceded and conduced to it This is a sad tale for an Englishman to narrate A few words touching the prisoners in the hand >f Akbar Khan. They have been earned oft, as 1 have before said, to the hills north of Tezeen; but intelligence has been received from them, and the) are " all well, and well treated." They are said to suffer muchilrom the cold, which even at that advanced season, was intense ; but not a complaint against their keepers h*9 yet been uttered. The) have been treated throughout with the greatest con aideration; they have neither been outraged nor in-ulted in any manner, and have aufterea no more <han the hardships which have been inseparable from their condition. Captain Mackenzie, who had been despatched to treat for their delivery, twice entered our catnp at Jellalabad, and twice returned with General Poljock's answers to the proposals ol Akbar Khan. It is feared that the negotiation will not be brought to a successful issue ; but still I do not tremble for the safety of the captives. I firml) believe that in due time they will be restored t< their countpr and their friends. So much for the barbarity of the Affghuns. The Indian news is unimportant. The King ol Oude is dead, and his son reigneth in his place?a matter of no great political moment. There have been some farther trivial manifestations of a discon ipntffl amrir in ihp Rnnril#?U nnrl miurf*<r hnf tliPi have been put down, and are not likely to lead to any ulterior consequences. Sclnde. Cholera, which appears to have ravaged the villages?leaving some of them, indeed, nearly halfdepopulated?has very much abated, and will, in all probability, speedily disappear.

The desire to purchase, up to Tuesday evening, liecame stronger and more decided than it hart previously baen. and . n a ivance of |d per lb. was established on our quotations of Friday last. The advices, bow ever, received on Wednssdav, of theun settled state of Manchester, arising from an <Vteusive turn out of operatives in that and the neiehboriuu districts. have lor the present arrestsJ the progress of amendment, ? ami the market closes in consequence rather cuietly, I though at the extreme pricea of laat week. Looking to > the promiaing atate of the weather, to the atill very moderate piicea, and to other circumstances conducive to im- t provement, it aeema ieason?ble to hope that our market j will not'oe unfavorably affected by any tempatary tern t porary suspension of business in the iatciior, the lets so t that the extensive opetations ofthe paat month have re. | lieved bolder* of a latge jiortin of their stock*. Brazil- j are without variation. Egyptians coniii Ue dull, and the t greater patt* of the lota sold have been in small quantities t at (tjd lo 8jd per lb. Surata have been ill good demand | throughout fhewholeof the week, and the common and t middling qualitiea are again rather higher. The sales ol the week (with 4000 bales to day, and a steady market) amount to 3?,420 hags, including 11,000 American and 560 Surat on speculation, and 1900 American, lOOPemamand I 300 Surat for export. The quotations, according to the | standard now adopted hy the Broken' Association, are, | fair Uplands, 6]d, tair Mobiles 6Jd, and fair Orleans Old , per lb. The import of the week is 35,954 hales. LivaarooL Coax Maaact, Aug. 18.?The arrivals ol | Fore gn Wi eat, though hitherto leas abundant than those of last week, are still rather liberal; and of Flour from ' Canada we have again to note a fair supply, with a feu further parcels of Peas and Oatmeal thence, and SI 15 quarters Egyptian Beans ; bnt ex'-ept 5313 barrels Flour, no produce from the Unite I States, and little either coastwise i or from Ireland since this day se'nnight. i Favored by a continuance of admirably fine weather, ( the harsett in this circle of the country is now general, j and progressing more rapidly than we havo known It foi many years; there is every prospect, unless interrupted ' hy a sudden change, of much Corn being saved In excellent condition during the present week, these considers- | tions. rombiued with similar accounts from all psrts ofthe kingdom, snd the disturbed state of the maniifactuiiti; districts impeding our usual intercourse with those mar keta, prohibit any extestsiva business for tha moment; otherwise, the comparatively low rates at which wehave now arrived arc certainly well calculated to promote an I improved demand for cor?umption. The ilitplay of foreign wheat and flour, thia morning ( hit been increased by the large amount of duties paid, and the determination of Importers to clear the stocks out of bond before Kriday next, which, and the ceases previously stated, deterring the buyers from purchaslag more than is needful to serve their immediate wants, .both these articles have met a very limited demand, the former receding in value rather below the rates of this day week, and reducing that of the latter Is. per barrel. Barley, Malt, Beans, and Peas,continuing to excite little or no attention, the prices of each are very irregular and scarcely ascertainable. A small parcel of Irish new Oats it to-day realized 3s Id per 15 lb; but in old little or no business was apparent, and such may lie noted Id per buabel cheaper. Irish Oatmeal, however, was in moderate request at a decline of Is. per 240lb, and a lot of Canadian was disposed of at 20s. in clu ling barrcli. Livxarooi. Provision Market.?American Produce. ?The imports for this month are scarcely worth notice, say 366 kegs and 36 brlsLard, 306boxes Cheese,TTSbrli Pork, and 11,311 brls Oresse. The disturbed state ofthe manufac uring districts adds to thedullness noticed in our last report, and it is with difficulty any sales are eflectad, and, while this state of things continues, prices, for the most part, must be considered nominal. Laid, in retail parcels, is selling at 80s; 40s to 43s for the best quality is asked. Hams have been sold at 36s to 40s. Bacon 40a to 43s. Beef is quite negleoted, even for export. Pork 30s >o31sperbrl. Cheese 38s to 60s per cut, as to quality. Urass continues to meet with a lew purchasers at ?36 per ton. Hor Intelliuince.? Maidstone.?The bines are somew hat benefitted by the warm nights, but are still much in w ant of rain. No season has, perhaps, ever proved the importance of high cultivation in a greater degree than this; an J, considering that an alteration of dry heats and colds has continued tor so long a period, it is a matter ot surprise that the condition ofthehops is so good as it is. Hoesmonden, Marden, and Yaldino.?Some of the hups in these parishes have done pretty well, while others have gone w orse. The hot dry weather has nearly beat tioth the fly and the lice, whilst in many of the fire blasted grounds, our old enemy, the Sea, is working total destruction. Tickhurst.?The best grounds are now coming fast into hop, but are in w antofrain to give vigor to the bine. The weak grounds are turning yellow, and a ill not do much. The duty is here considered too high at ?135,000. MkRKWORTH, WATERINOBt'RV, AND NarTLESTBOD.? The hops have grown considerably during the past week, hutcannatbc considered as haviag improved in the manner usual at this time of year. Most grounds appear to be greatly (tillering from tlie long drought and wet weather, jDd in many grounds that appeared very healthy a fortnight since, the fire-blaat has appeared, and increases very iu<-t.

MiKCHttTii, Tueaday?Ofcourae. in the present state of the town, there was but little busi ness done on the Exchange; the spinners and manufactu rers being unwilling, or, tram want of stock, unable to make sales. What business was done was at higher rates <oi' both goods and yarn; put the prices were so exceeding, ly irregular, that any attempt to specify the amount of advance would tend only to mislead. Dundee, Tuesday?During the last eight days there has been little or no change in the state of our mercantile alfairs. The reports of trade from the chief towns in England continue to show symptoms of slight improvement similar to w hat has been experienced here during the laat tew weeks, hut there is still great room for amendment Flax on the spot is getting rather scarce, and prices are without alteration. Tows and codillas are also less abundant than usual at this period of the y ear, and are withotr any change in value. Tarns and linens are moving off slowly at same reduced rates as formerly. THCasasr, Aug. 18.?Colonial Produce?The demand for most kinds ol produce was steady, and the general character of the market was unchanged, with a pro.treaaive Improvement. In the West India Sugar Market the sales were not large, but the importers were firm, and the prices of last week were firmly supported. Tea.?It heiner understood the Dubllc. sales will talie place next week, the market wm very quiet, and price* merely nominal, though purchases could not be made exept at extreme rate*. The deliver e? continue extentive, notwithstanding the low prices of coft'ee. Havre Market, Aug. 15?Cotton.?Notwithstanding the continuation of favorable accounts from Liverpool, anu ttie fair amount of business done here in Cotton siuce our last report, our market has been altogether devoid of ani mation, and save for the fully ordinary qualities of United States short staple, upon which, in some instances, an advance ol lc per hall kilo has been obtained ; our rates for the other grades ol these Cottons have remained stationary. A public sale of 1739 bags New Orleans is advertised for the 17th Inst. The transactions from the 7th to the 13th inst., last Saturday inclusive, embrace 7545 bags, consisting ot 3941 bags New Orleans, at 661 to 93f 60c ; 1906 bags Mobile at 59f to 93f; '1177 bags Upland at 63f to 90f; 33 bag* Pisco at 96 ; 73 bags Guadeloupe at lOOf to IOlf; 197 bag* Porto Kico at 105f; and 335 bags Cumana at 66f; the whole duty paid.

The only public sale to-day in the colonial markets was of 325 hhds 6 tcs 131 brls St. Lucia sugar, which sold at 58s to 66s perewt for brown to fine yellow. Awtwerv Market?Our Coffee sales from the 30th ultimo to the 10th instant, were far less numerous than ihose of the preceding week, owing perhaps in some measure to the firmness of holders, but on the whole no flue luation took place. Sugar underwent no alteration, and the transactions were confined to 000 boxes yellow Havana at 12 to 13} fl, in bend, leaving us with a stock of 100 boxes white, and 21,000 yellow Havana, 750 chests cf white and yellow Pernambuco, 750 cannisters Java, 9600 vellow and brown mats Manilla, and 1000 bags white, yellow, and brown Siam.

The only sales of Tobacco effected his week was of 63 hhds Kentucky, and our stock iscomlosedof 460 hhds Maryland, 60 Virginia, and 1381 Ken- , ucky. Tea enjoyed a fair demand, and about 400 chests Congou and Hvsnu Skin were, in the course of the week, lisposed of at differedt prices according to quality. Amsterdam Market.?Coffee, during the eight days inding August 10, remained in the same position as the ^receding week, with this exception only, that holders ippeared rather more retired, owing perhaps to the auumn sales being considerably smaller than those of last ,'ear. Ordinary Cheribon at 33j is rather scarce, and for < tome consumption not to be bought tinder 34 cents ; fair ( rellow- and brown sorts are held at somewhat higher ate*. Tea remained firm, but without much doing. Spiles continued in request. Carolina Rice, cleaned at Am- 2 terdam, 134 to 14 fl, cleaned in America II to 13 A. In . :otton nothing particular was done, the sales having been imited to about 160 bags Surinam, at somew hat better ' irices than ba:ore.

More PrEtrto for Divorce ?Mrs Rosanna Dun tarn, of Hoston, a very nanusome woman, has up>lied for a divorce from her husband Thomas H Dunham, to whom she was married in 1H39.

The case is not yet determined. Murder.?Mr Raylis L. Wilcox, overseer of Dr. A.

We received this iiii|H>: tant uew a yesterday moraine about five o'clock, anu issued the 9anie in our regular weekly edition, and about 10,000 extras. The news is of the most intense interest. Every tiling in Europe appears to be in a terribly unsettled state, and England seems to be rife for a revolution. It any thing should happen to Louis Philippe, or he should die suddenly, we may expect an immediate revolution in that country, to be followed by a frightful and most bloody revolution in England. May that Providence who guides the destinies of empires, avert so fearful a calamity. Departure of Lord Aahburton and the British Frigate YVarsplte. The press of foreign news and other matter compels us to be brief on this subject. Lord Ashburton rose yesterday morning by half-past six; and immediately on entering his sitting room he commenced reading the " New York Herald," containing the important foreign news. Soon afterwards, he sent over to our office by a special messenger requesting the loan of some English pajiers, and we had the pleasure of supplying him v*ilh two or three files of late London papers, lie breakfasted about eighi o'clock, read and answered a tew letters, received (he visits of several (rends, and at half-past eleven took his seat in a plain carriage, and was driven down to the Castle Garden. At the boat club stairs, the barge ofLordJohn Hay, with fourteen oars and a Lieutenant, was in waiting for him. There were about seven or eight hundred persons waiting to see him off. He walked front Mrs. Pettet's, the Battery Hotel, to the stairs, leaning on the arm of the first Lieutenant of the Warspite, and followed by the crowd. He went inside the Castle Garden for a minute, and returned and embarked in silence. Not a cheer was given by those assembled, and no demonstration was made until the barge arrived abreast of the North Carolina. Then that noble vessel opened her mouth, and fired a salute of 13 i-'uns to Lord John Hay. The men in the barge held their oars upright, the crew of the North Carolina manned the yards and gave three hearty cheers.? The Warspite's yards were manned, and her crew returned the cheers. As soon as Lord Ashburton reached the Warspite, that vessel returned the salute. After this, Commodore Perry, in his barge, left the North Carolina, and went on board the Warspite, and took a quiet parting, private drink with Lord Ashburton and Lord John Hay. He 6tayed there about five minutes. As soon as he left, the Warspite ihcu a. x uoi v>apiaiii o oaiuic 111 iiuiiui ui vuuiuiuuuic Perry. When the latter reached the North Carolina, he returned that salute, and manned the rigging The Warepite then fired a National Salute of 21 guns and got under weigh, with a steamboat on each ?ide of her. The North Carolina returned the Nalional Salute, and the Warspite proceeded slowly down the bay, with the best wishes of all for her speedy and prosperous voyage. Medical Intelligence.?Great preparation? are making for the winter campaign by the medical institutions of this city. The old and highly respectable College of Physicians and Surgeons, will have very large classes. Dr Mott does not entertain the most sanguine hopes of the success of the Stuyvesant School of Medicine and Pharmacy, and the illiberality and insolent conduct ot this Faculty towards the profession in this city, will doubtless operate considerably to the disadvantage of this school Dre. Mott and Pattison, however, for their zeal in the work of suppressing quackery, and improving the science of pharmacy. The "College of Medicine and Pharmacy," is meeting with extraordinary success. Among other valuable and new medicines, they have, we observe, introduced a genuine Extract of Sarsaparilla,which can scarcely be manufactured quickly enough to meet the demand. Our anticipations of the succesas of this great movement on the part of the regular physicians, are already fulfilled. The college at all events, make medicine palatable, and next to the invigorating breezes of Rockaway, we are more than half inclined to place their agreeable restoratives. The Hon. Daniel Webster arrived in this city yesterday between two and three o'clock, and put up at the Aetor House. He was crossing tha North River just as the last salute was given and the Warspite got under weigh. The Weather.?After three or four of the most intensely hot and sultry days that we have had this year, we were blessed last night withaglorious rain, which lasted till midnight?and for a wonder, there was no thunder or lightning. Packet Ship Westchester.?We learn that this ship has filled with water to her lower deck, and that the Mutual Safety did not bring up any passengers. Many of them, however, have found their way to this city by land. Her cargo will be saved. Harnder Ac Co.'s Express.?We are again under obligations to the enterprising Harnden & Co., for the foreign news brought by the Caledonia. They run a special express from Boston, which reached this city at four o'clock yesterday morning.

At half-[>ast 7 o'clock, Mr. Origen Bachelor aroae, and stated that he had been requested by Gen Bennett to take part in the discussion, but he should merely make a few remarks for the purpose of showing that sects had sprung up in different ages of the world, professing to be Christian, who had practised the worst features of the Mormon system, for the purpose of showing the probability that something similar may even now exist. Mr. B. then read from Buck's Theological Dictionary extracts sustaining his views. Gen. J. C. Bennett then rose, and was greeted with a round oi applause. He said he had intended to have proceeded at once with his description of the Seraglio that existed in the city of Nauvoo under the auspices of the holy Pope, Joe Smith, but other matters had occurred to change his purpose. His life was sought by the Mormons, not because he was opposed to their doctrines, but because he knew of certain matters and things connected with the attempted assassination of Ex-Governor Boggs, of Missouri. He then spoke of the attempted assassination of himself on the 29th of May, and his being followed from town to town in the west, and continued, "On the 31st of August, the CaptainGeneral of the Ifenile band,and five more of his band were arrived here, and their secret plans to assassinate me was overheard by some citizens o! this place, tvhnwill m?Ice nnth In if f 1 ub..?U UO?.ucn'.? ated 1 will state some of the jaroofs I have on the subject of the attempted assassination of Silburne W. Hoggs, hoping some Missourian maybe present to hear them." Gen. Bennett then proceeded to give a portion ot theprootsin his possession, pointing out O. P. Rockwell as the assassin, and the Prophet Joseph Smith as an accessary before and after the fact. * * * "I will give you a history of a few of the females of the House of Israel, before I go on with the Seraglio. First is the widow Fuller, now Mrs. Warren; she is a luscious woman, with a good head, amativeness at eleven, thssame size as Joe's. * * * In 1841,1 saw the holy Joe in bed with the widow Fuller, as testified to in the affidavit of Mrs. Shindle, which has b'en published in the Herald and other papers? it is very rich?he attempted Mrs. Shindle, but couldn't com e it?6he told him to go over to the widow it was better picking. " Miss Matilda Nyman is one of the wild Cyprian saints in the land of Ham; she is tender hearted, affectionate, and kind. * * * joe wa8 touched with her infirmaties, * * * but the waters of the Red Sea can wash clean from all impurity. " Maigaret Nyman, the nymph of the cloistered sisters of consecration, who is one of the most chaste of the saints, she is chaste in the harem?she is chaste?c-h-a-s e-d, I mean, every where. * * " ^ T ine i ropnci joc wisncu to keep her as a recluse for his own privats benefit, but the organ of amaiiveness was too large, she delighted to live in tall clover.. * * * The following is a part ol her examination before the Holy Inquisition :? Inqmtitor.?Margaret, the Lord has revealed that you have been guilty of illicit intercourse with men; confess,and your fault shall be forgiven; if not. God's curse will fall upon you. Margartt?I will confess, I am young and once was innocent, but * * * * * Inq ?Who was the first man deprived you of vour virtue 1 Mar.? Mr. W-? /no.?How came you to yield 1 Mar.?He said Josepn approved of it, and I yielded # * # * # * Inq ?An y others'? Mar?Yes Inq?Give the next name. Mir.?You must excuse me. Inq.?II you do not, you will be cut off from the Church. Mar ?Mr. B . Inq ?Did he urge the sam.1 doctrine 1 Mar.?No. Inq.?How did he accomplish his purl>ose ? Mar.?We just went at it and asked no Questions, for Joseph had approved it. Inq?Is there any other? Mar.?Yes. Inq.?Name him. Mar. ?It is not necessary, I am under a covenant. Inq. ?You must answer. Joseph directed us to absolve all covenants. Mar.?1 would rather defer it until I can consult ihe person. Inq -Joseph knows all about it, it has been revealed to him by God, and if you do not reveal it, the curse will fall on you; you nniet tell. Mar.?It was Joseph. Inq.?Stand aside, you need not tell that. * * * The widow Fuller confessed to forty men and beasts, and said she believed Joseph was as pure as the sucking babe. The widow Miller, amativeness large. (Here followed her examination bafore the inquisition, similar to the above. She also, was absolved from the covenant, and mentioned the name of Joseph. The Inquisitor said " Stop,?Joseph is pure and free from sin." I know," said the widow, "Joseph is pure and free from sin, and only does it to show he is a man as well as a prophet, and to try the faith of the saints.") Tlic Inouisilion.?The male department consists of the High Council, the President of the Stake of Zion, ana twelve priests?fifteen in all The female department, of the Lady Emma (Joe's wife) and twelve members os the Relief Society. * * * This inquisition has power to bind or loose, put up or put down, or destroy any person or thing, from tlie Lord, and has two hundred Danites to enforce its decrees. Their doctrine is that the Prophet can do no wrong. * * * 'Hie Seraglio.?The Mormon Seraglio, or female lodge, is composed of three degrees or orders. First, the Cyprian Saints: second, the Chamber of the Sisters of Charity ; third, the Cloistered Consecrated Saints. The first, the wild Cyprian Saints, as I call them, are such females as are suspected to be of easy virtue by the Sisters of Relief, who have them brought before the Inquisition, unless the Prophet reseives them for himself, and are called Cyprian Saints; take the white veil, and are excluded from the Consecratees of the Relief Society, who publish their shame privately, and they become an easy prey to Saints and Gentiles. * * They are sought by the Elders and Priests, whose passions are dark, sensual, devilish. Second, the Sisters of the Chamber of Charity. This class are females, married or single, who act on the permission of the Prophet, without private marriage. When one of the wild male saints sees a female he fancies, he goes to Joe, and requests him to ask her of the Lord for him, and the answer is always favorable, unless the IVhite Hat Prophet wants her himself, and they are enjoined that it must be kept secret from the Gentiles.
