NEW YUKK HEKALU Ni-w 1'ork, ftatnrdajr, Sloreh IS, 1*43. ik>? The Wkxxi.y llmtAj.n, i?ubli?hed to-day, contains among oilier interesting matter, the news by tli* Great Western, and the whole of the celebrated arguments in the Somtm' Cast, now before the U.S District Court, comprising the seeches of Messrs Puer and Griffin for the McKenzie aide, and those of Messrs. Butler and O'Connor against hun. Price six cents. 4wpoatairr Political Movkmkhts?Large meetings have been held in several places, nominating i-.k- n ??,i tins May, 1844, for the timeol holding the democratic convention?Baltimore the place?and the district system the mode. The two principal movements of this kind have been made in Detroit, Michigan, and in Charleston, S. C.?both important centres o( thought and influence. The friends of Mr. Calhoun are very busy in every part of the country, and now that Captain Tyler has received his atuf dt fn'"ce 'n New York, we should not be surprised to see the administration give its influence to the Carolina statesman. John C. Spencer, the mtuUr ol the government, will probably be in favor of such a course. Tna Dioision of JtmoK Bktts ?There is much inquiry, and some anxiety, to ascertain what will be th? decision ot his Honor Judge Bettg, in the great and important question now submitted to him, as to the jurisdiction of the United States Circuit Court in the case of Commander McKenzie and Lieut. Cansevoort. It ia a question of deep interest and vital, importance to the parties concerned. And it is also a question entirely unique, and now for the first time raised in this country since the organization of the federal government. What will be the decision ol Judge Belts it is impossible now to foresee. Should lie, on examination, be clear in* his opinion, it is probably that he will unhesitatingly assume the responsibility, and express it, whether in the affirmative or in the negative. Even should he be clear in his opinion, there is, however, yet another alternative which he may think it wise and expedient to adopt under the extraordinary circumstances of the case. If he deliver his opinion now, while alone upon the bench, Questions can only go up on a division of opinion, .fudge Thompson is not at present ia town. His regularduties are at Washington,hut inconsequence of the illness of his wife, he is now at his residence at Poughkeepsie. Judge Betts may, therefore, send un to him for his opinion, and by mutual understanding, as is usual in case ol divisions, they may divide in their opinions in this caBe, and thus send it up for decision to the Supreme Court ol the United States. There is still another view of the case: even supposing that Judge Betts should charge the Grand Jury that the Court has jurisdiction, and under that charge that the Grand Jury should bring in a bill against the accused,still on a motion to quash the indictment for want of jurisdictionJin the Court, the question could be carried up to the Supreme Court, in case as before stated, there be a division of opinion between Judges Thompson and Betts. C&ud Gushing at tub Astor Housk.?On Thursday morning, Mr. Gushing held a levee at the Astor Hoase, and saw a great many ol the Inends of the administration. We understand from several persons who were present, that Mr. Cushing considered the issue of the recent Tvler meeting as perfectly conclusive against any chances of the re-election of the incumbent now in the White House. Mr. Gushing also gave intimation that John C. Spencer was the master-spirit of the administration?that Mr. Webster would soon leave the Cabinet?that Mr. Curtis would not long be Collector of New York?that Col. Graham was popular at the White House? and that soms important movements would soon take place. On comparing together all the lacts within onr knowledge, we would not be surprised to see a strong coalition between John Tyler, John C. Siiencer, Daniel Webster and John C. Calhoun, in favor of the latter against Van Buren and Clay throughout the country. This would make a curious combination of materials. We wait for the (itnnvxm Colic an's Gallery or Costumes and ueaitiettl Paphtinos?We with pleasure commend it as particularly deserving the attention and patronage of ladies and gentlemen who have taste for the fine arts. His new costumes from Paris, from the 10th to the 18th centuries^ arranged under glass in the same room with nearly 200 oil paintings, many of which would be creditable in any collection in Europe, must make Mr. Colman's gallery a place of fashionable resort The charge of admission being but one shilling; and if either of the costumes should be desired for its fashion or dress, they will have the permission to lake a copy of it for fifty cents, thereby saving ilie necessity of purchasing six or mors to obtain one, as is often the case, as they are published in sets. We approve of his plan and again repeat, let strangers who visit New York never leave it until they have seen this most delightful lounge in the city. N. B.?We are requested to state that no charge is made to his literary saloon and bookstore, up stairs. Philif's Lifk of Mil-ik ?This is a capital hook of 320 pages, just published by D. Appleton Co. It is exactly adapted to answer .the demand of the public for authentic intelligence concerning China, and the countries in Eastern Asia; accurate information about which part of the-^world has become indispensable in consequence of the opening of China to free association with the commercial na. ttons This volume communicates more knowledge upon those subjects, than can be found in nny other treatise of the present day. It is a book which will be as advantageous to persons trading and navigating beyond the Cape of Good Hope, as it is gratifying to all those who correctly estimate the labors of Morrison and Milue in breaking down the great wall of China. Price only 25 cents. For sale at this office. Los* 'of ntK Conookd CoxKijiMen.?We learn that the U. S. Sloop of War Concord, lias really been lost on the East Coast of Africa. It is retried by Captain Briggs, of the Barclay, who has now arrived at New Bedford,that the I', S. Sloop of War John Adams sailed from Oaj>e Town, Cape Good Hope, on the 3d of January, for Rio Janeiro, having Capt Boerumand the other officers and crew ol the (jMMtffi An linarH No other particulars The C< imbt Last Evening.?The comet made a very beautiful ap(>earnnce last night, before the moon rose This is extremely fortunate, as the weather for some nights |.ast has not allowed astronomers to make such observations as are necessary to ascertain its |<osition and its course. Weinny now very shortly expect aome authentic account of this stranger, from New Haven and other credible sources. lrtkrart Emeite.?Quite a flare up has broken out among the (lUrattvr* of New York. Park Henistnin has made a severe attack on the magazines, including K|>rs Sargent and N P. Willis, the latler especially coining in for the lion's share of the onset We shall notice it hereafter. The Storm Thursday Nioht.?This was most se vere?the worst we have had in it year. The wind blew a perfect trm|>est. The snow lias fallen to the depth of nearly two feet or thereabouts. The narrow streeta. where the snow is cleared of! the sidewalks,are rendered nearly impassable to vehicles drawn by lionet .Much damage was done in neveral parts ol the city Lkqislativk Interference with the Travelling Public?Railroads from Albany to Buffalo.? We are sorry to see that some most injudicious attempts have been made at Albany, through the agency of a clique ot stockholders to procure the interference of the legislature, not otily with the chartered rights of an incorporated company, but also with the rights of the (ravelling public, and the sj>e?dy transmission of the mail and private expresses We have not seen the provisions of the law which it is proposed to enact, but we understand it is a bill of by-laws or regulations, like the rules of a cook book, directing the Railroad Companies how to manage and transact their business, and especially how to make their bargains. It is forbidden, even by the Constitution ol the United States, to pass any law interfering with the obligation of contracts. And it is equally contrary to sound legislation to pass laws interfering with the free rights of parties to make contracts. And such contracts, too, as they mav choose to make. Nor does it matter at all who these parties are, whether they be the railroad companies with one another, or the railroad companies with travellers. It is right and expedient that both travellers and the railroad companies should all be left to themselves to make their own bargains without legislative interference. Let trade be free. Govern not too much. If travellers do not like the rules and regulations of the railroad lines, then let them take a packet line upon the canal. They have their choice at the outset. Legislative interference with the freedom to make contracts, if not unconstitutional, is preposterous and absurd, and contrary to sound democratic principles. According to the present arrangement from Albany to Buffalo, by rail road, it is twenty four hours. The proposed interference would increase the time several hours, and of course increase the expenses, both in time and money, proportionally ; and also delay the reception of letters and expresses for the same length of time. If we are rightly informed the movement has its erigin among the owners of packet lines upon the Erie Canal, for whose benefit and behoof the law is desired. The following article from an Albany paper contains some further views upon the same subject:? A few days ago a aolcct committee, appointed by the opeaaer, reporteua diii 10 tne legislature to provide lead ing strings for the travelling public. The people have been decreed to be wise eneugh to select their own le gialators, hut it seems to be the opinion of some ol these very legislators who claim to owe their position to the intelligence ot the people, that their constituents are not competent to be trusted with their own money when on a journey, bnt require the supervision ol special legislation and the advice of at least two ol that class of solicitors called " runners." The law which the committee have reported should be entitled " An act to promote the convenience of runners and tavern keepers, and to .prevent speedy and commodious travelling." One section provides that the railroad companies shall givo freo ingress and egress to and from their car houses to at least two agents or servants of every other railroad company, steamboat, packet boat, stage proprietor, association or campany, for the purpose of giving them access to the passengers and baggage. In order that this operation may be to the highest degree annoying, there is another provision, requiring that It shall not he lawful for the train of cars, on a road joining in any other road, to be put under way till thirty minutes alter the arrival of the cars at the termination of the other road. The convenient custom of receiving fare at one placo for any distance on a route of railroads, is to be checked by a legal enactment giving to the passengers the privilege of repudiating their bargains at every stopping place and the railroad agents are required to repay the lares and restore the baggage of passengers on reaching the termination ol any of the roads whenever they shall demand it. Finally, and as a sweeping clause, it is declared that? " It shall not be lawful for any railroad company to contract with any other railroad company to run or use, or to suffer to be run or used, on any railroad other than their own, their passenger cars or motive power, or either of them, or to contract or ngree with any other railroad company,to own,-purchase, nire, use or run, or to own, purchase, hire, use or run passenger cars or motive power in common or ki connexion; but eveiy railroad company shall contine the ordinary use ot their passenger cars and motive power to the liue of its own road; and every violation of the provisions ot this act by any railroad co-npany, their servants or agents, shall subiect the railroad com. panics offending, an3 each and every of them, to a penalty t two hundred and fifty dollars, to be recovered in au actio? of debt in the name ol the people of this State, by any person who will sue ter the same.' Let us suppose that this law is passed. A passenger staitingfrom Boston, on ajourney to Rochester or Buffalo, takes a car on the Western railroad, and reaches the boundary of this State. Here the strong arm of the law is interposed to check his progress. He here begins to realise the beauties of New York legislation. The cars are stopped for thirty minutes, two steamboat, packet t>oat, line boat, railroad, and stage runuers are admitted to the car house, to advise and consnlt with him as to his future coarse His baggage is changed ts a new car; he himself has to taka up new quarters, and a new engine must be provided to carry him on his journey. If his baggage is not stolen, he pursues his route to Albany. Here he is not allowed to pay his tare gat once, lor the remainder of his journey, for the provisions of the law are intended to prevent such an accommodation. His baggage mist be changed at Schenectady, and at every other stopping place on the way. He must stop thirty minutes there, to be importuned and harrassed by a gang of clamorous and often dishonest ruuners; he must wait thirty minutes to give these land sharks and the baggage thieves and tavern keepers a chance to profit by his position, for "it shall be sludged a misdemeanor,and*shall be punishable as such," to exclude these persons from tha car house. Such legislation, which looks upon the people as in a state of pupilage, is not in character with the age or spirit of our institutions. On this, as on many other subjects, we all feel that in the language of the Globs, " the world is governed too much." Graham's Magazine, lor April, (just issued by Israel Post, 88 Bowery) is no whit inferior to any ol its predecessors. Every page sparkles with the genius ol the first authors of the continent?Cooper, Paulding, Longfellow,Willis,Wilde, Mesdames Smith, Ellet, Sigonrney, Osgood, Sawyer, and some dozen others, fill it to the brim with the nectar ol the immortals. We observe in a certain journal constant attempts to depreciate our periodical literature and to elevate in the popular estimation that of Great Britain; though as often as "Graham" appears the editor of the journal aforesaid greedily seizes and publishes its crack articles in his own columns. Now, putting out of the question the rabid jiolitics of Blackwood, acknowledged by every body to be the best ol the foreign monthlies, we do not believe one iiemon in five thousand would pronounce it equal to Graham's?Compare the last three numbers? 1 in' s any one suppose Christopher North would not welcome heartily Buch contributions lor "Old Ebony," an Allston, Bryant, Cooper,^Dana, Longfellow and Paulding have made to Graham's Magazine? Pshaw' it is really an insult to the reader to ask so ridculous a question. We demand pardon. Cooper, in the number belore us finishes his "Autobiography ol a Pocket Handkerchief," said to be the heat thing he has done in this decade; the ExMinister Paulding gives notes ol his grand tour with the Sage of Linden wold down the Mississippi; Mrs Seba Smith shows conclusively what we always supposed to he true, that the Witch of Ender, instead ol heing a bag was one of the most beautiful and loveable creatures of the world; Herbert presents a splendid historical ballad founded on the well known story of Jane McIIh'': Longfellow lias too exquisitely finished poems; Willis a scripture piece ol exceeding beauty: Mrs Ellet, n story of intense interest, and some cfi 7.en others, ladies and gentlemen of merit, give clever articles ol various descriptions. The editorial reviews, etc. are written with discrimination, ability, and independence.? One ol the engravings, "First Affection," is a gem worth a years'subscription to the Magazine No 2 will not bear so much praise, though it is quite equal to the common run of the periodical plates; and No. 3, "designed" and engraved expressly for the "ladie*," will bring down universal applause. * New Hampshire Ej-kction.?In consequence'of the non arrival of the eastern mail, due yesterday morning, we are without many returns. It is supposed, however, from those received that Hubbard has succeeded over both the whig and Tyler candidates by about 2lHto majority. The Great Western ?There is "no truth in the rej>ort that this steamer put back an Thursday -night in consequence of the storm. She went directly to sea, and was out of sight before the storm set in. The wind blew most frightfully, but the Western is sale enough. Navai. Court Martial.?The trial of Commander McKen/ie was resumed yesterday, but nothing of interest was presented. Chatham Tiikatre.?Several new pieces are announced tor line evening, one of which, entitled " 1 he ( oniet," is represented as irresistibly rich in scenesot wonder nnd astonishment. Mr. Thorne isever ready to present the vulgar prejudices of the day in their most ?|>propriatr colors, in contrast with the robes of awful dignity with which certain deluded fanatics invest their ridiculous < lumens; and in this new play, wc understand, a certain high dignitary receives some severe, though perha|*w?|| merited ri| - over'lie knuckles We anticipate a lull house lo-lllght Dinner ok the Saint Patrick's Society at the City Hotel, Last Evening.?The annual dinner of this Society took place last night at the City Hotel. The arrangements, and entire getting up of the festival were extremely creditable to the proprietor of this elegant house The dining room was tastefully decorated by the banners of the Saint Patrick's, Saint George's, and New England Societies!; a transparency of the venerable Saint whose natal day was celebrated, and the Harp of Erin. The dinner was served in the best style, antl the wineawere of the choicest brands. Among the guests we noticed?W. D. Cuthbertson, Esq., Vice-President of the Saint George's Society; R. lrvin, Esq, President of the Saint Andrew's Society; E. W. Faber, Esq., President of the German Society; D. C. Golden, Esq., President of Saint David's Society; M. li. Grtnnell, Esq., President of the N. England Society; E. Benson, Esq., President Saint Nicholas Society; A. Barclay,Esq., British Consal; Jas. Buchanan, ?x-British Consul; Rev. Mr. Levins, Chaplain ; J. tt. Whiting, District Attorney; Charles O'Connor; Brady; R. J. Dillon; Graham ; Dr. Hogan; Dr. Houston; J. Caldwell, Jno. E. White, and Geo. McBride, Esqrs., tec.,&c. Aftpr the ninth WAS n?mnvptl th#? nhtirmon rncp and said ? Gentlemen?Before offering any regular toast, I beg to tliHnk you for the honor of electing me to preside over this society. (Cheers.) I will now call on you to drink the toasts this evening with all the enthusiasm of Irishmen. (Cheers.) They have been framed in a spirit of liberality, and will, I trust, be drank in ths same spirit. I must express the gratification which we feel in welcoming the guests who honor us with their presence, some of them for the first time, because they never filled the same station. (Cheers ) Fill for the first standing toast. "The day we celebrate?We rejoice in its annual return, and hail with pleasure the patriotic feeling* it excites." Three cheers and all the honors. Air?" St. Patrick's Day in the Morning." The next regular toast was? " Saint Patrick?We revere the memory of him who first planted the banner of the cross in the green isle of the ocean." Air?" The Exile of Erin." The next toast was? " Ireland?Her history is full of sorrow?her brigheet page must yet be written !" Air?" Savourneen Dheelish." The Chairman then called on Mr. Chrehugh for a song ; and that gentleman cheerfully responded, and sang " Nora, the pride of Kildare," with characteristic spirit, brilliancy and effect, which whs received with rapturous applause. The next toast was? " The United States of America?Prosperity to their II wr 1H91IIUIIUU1. Three times three, and one cheer more. Air?" Hail Columbia." The Chairman called on Mr. Austen Phillips for a son??and that distinguished vocalist sang "The early time of love," in his usual exquisite style. Next toast? " The President of the United State*." Drank with all the honors. Air?" The Pre*ident's March." The Chairman then called on the second VicePresident for a volunteer song, with the remark that a single volunteer was worth a dozen pressed men. But no song came?and the next toast was announced. Mr. Chairman?Well, then, fill for the sixth toast; and if you're Irishmen you'll fill to it?to the petticoats? " Queen Victoria?May all the meaiures of her reign be just te Ireland?juitice to Ireland will be doubly repaid bv the affection* ot Irishmen.'* Three times three. Air?" God save the Queen. Mr. Barclay, the British Consul, then rose and returned thanks as follows:?I rise only in consequence of an intimation that I should return thanks for this toast. I can only say that I would deem it as insulting to the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick to do so, when I recollect that they were born to the allegiance of Queen Victoria, asl was myself. The next regular toast was? The City of New Tork?Her great public, work* are lulling monument* of her mighty enterprise, and sure guarantee* of her lasting prosperity. (Cheers ) Air?11 The Star Spangled Banner." The Chairman then called on the first Vice President to obtain a song from his end of the table. Tlip ViCP ronliprl tViaf lio waa romipafp?1 fn nail nn the Chairman himself for a song, and Mr. Reybum with the fgreatest bonhomie responded and sang a comic song. Chairman?Fill your glasses for the next toast?it is one that calls for the hospitality of this board, and I am sure you will do it justice. Our liiter societiei?emulation without strife ! Three times three. Air?" The Angel's Whisper." Mr. Ctjththrtson, Vice President of the St. George's Society, briefly returned thanks, and gave:? The Sons of St Patrick, in lore and in war, over victorious?in industry and perseverance, they set laudable examples?in patriotism firm, and in the social virtues eminent?May the country which they love, rgjoice in freedom and happiness. Mr. Irvin, tne President of the St. Andrew's Society, also returned thanks as follows:?The task of replying to the last toast, is a pleasiag one. It is that of returning a cordial response to the kindness and hospitality of the sons of St. Patrick on the part of the sons of St. Andrew. (Cheers ) It is impossible to over-estimate yourefiorts in the cause of honevolence. The woes fo touchinglv described in that exquisite ballad?"the Exile of Erin," cannot affect the sons of green Erin here, for here he meets his warm-hearted brethren, who enable him to obtain a happy home in this free land. (Cheers) Long may a blessing rest on the labors of this society. Allow me to propose a toast in honor of an Irish woman, i i i 1 : II i 1 1 : 1 i ? miuwh tuiu luvru in nn jniiun wutrrr Kruiun nnu ireland are known. No one has pourtrayed so truly, and vindicated with such fervor, the Irish character, aa Miss Edgeworth I can only say of her, that she is not, and never has been, nn "absentee." (Great applause.) Although honors would have awaited her in other lands, she has clung with undying affection to her own country. Eet me give? Mis* Edgeworth?Beloved at home, admired abroad? the ornament of her aex and of Ireland. Drank with three times three, and continued cheering. Mr. Fabkr returned thanks on behalf of the German Society?he had often before manifested how much he felt like an Irishman on St. Patrick's day, and he would only give? Charitv?We own her influence in drawing cloier the tiea of conntry in a foreign laad. Drank with all the honors. Mr. Golden returned thanks on behalf of the St. David's Society. His maternal grandmother was, he said, an Irishwoman, and so nn the ground of consanguinity he had some relationship to Ireland. He could also add that Mr. Robert Addis Emmett had been his friend, and who that knew him did not love and venerate him! Who did not acknowledge that he was every inch an Irishmen?every inch an Irish gentleman! (Applause.) But he (Mr. Golden) had other grounds for resecting Ireland We had been a landed proprietor thare, nnd had experience of the fidelity of Irishmen to their engagements. We had also travelled in that " green isle," and whilst he could cheerfully respond to the sentiment of the poet? " Ireland- Ireland?aweeteit i(lo ol the ocean." He had heard the swelling hills and blooming valleys of that lovely land, re-echo?" Erin niavourneen, erin go bragh!" (Cheers.) He concluded by giving :? Prosperity to Ireland. Alderman Bkn-on returned thanks in behalf of the St. Nicholas Society. Mr. M. H Ghinnkli. returned thanks on the part of the New England Society The next toast was? The Daughter* of Erin. Drank with tremendous applause. Mr ' ''Kaiiam's (the 1st Vice President) health was then drank with all due honors, and that gentleman offered the next toast, after thanking the Society for the h?nor of Ins election i? May Irishmen continue to throng around the festive hoard in honor of their patron saint, and cheri?h union and harmony. Three times three. Mr. I)ii.t.on, (the 2d Vice President,) then rose, and said?In the darkest hours of Irish history.no nation discovered more steadfast sympathy for Ireland than France When the heel of the 9axou trod deep on the land, and Saxon vengeance attempted to obliterate the very name of Irishmen, France offered them her open arms. (Cheers.) And when it was prohibited under the sternest penalties, to teach the sons of Ireland, France offered the means of educating her priesthood. France also, in all the departments of her government, offered the means of distinction to Irishmen; and the stranger in Paris could pee inscribed on the gates of the capital the names of Iri-h warriors, who under other circumstance--, would have given their blood and lives to the service of their native land. 1 offer th< n :? France, brave nn<l chivalrous, the refuge of Irishmen? may she heraelfover obtain the sympathy she hssso freely given to the oppress*)). (Cheers) Air?The " Marseille* Hymn." The Rev. Mr. Lavcss then gave? The Society of the Friendly Hon* of Ht. Patriek?It* sim on earth, heaven's own virtue, Charity. An "Roiy O'Moore." The Chairman then proposed the health of his predecessor?Dr. Hogan. I'r Kobkrt Mohan returned thanks in feeling and pprnpnate terms, and cencluded Ity giving ihe health of? P.iuiel OVonnel?The political liberator af Ireland. The Chairman then rote and said?I now propose the health of a gentleman, who, in hi* late noble defence of a helpless Irish girl, ns well as in hie general character, deserved the warmest approbation of the Irish people of America? The health of James K. WhitingDrank wuh tremendous applause. Mr Whitino returned thanka. He said he had only, in the discharge of his duty, pressed on the notice of the jury in the case alluded to, the consideration of the general character which the Irish iemales have uniformly maintained. (Great cheering.) He would have responded to the toast in honor ot the Irish ladies, il he had had notice. To their virtue and honorable character he could in his official character bear the iiighest testimony. From those who had received in their arms the fair representatives of thsi green isls the eulogium on the character of the daughters of that "green isle" would with more propriety come; but he cherished the hope of yet visiting that isle, for which a love had? " Grown with hit growth, And strengthened with hit strength." The learned gentleman concluded with proposing the memory of? " Amelia Curran, the betrothed of Robert Emmctt, and Maria Steell, the loved one of Robert Shears." (lireat applause ) Drank in solemn silence. Air?" Oh, Breathe not hit name !' Mr. Giu.EsriF.gave? " The Irish heart?the seat of hospitality and honor." (Cheers ) Air?" Come baste to the Wedding. The Chairman here rose and said, that among

the invitations issued by the Society were those to the distinguished Sons of Ireland?among thein there were found to be, John C. Calhoun,the son of Patrick Calhoun of Ireland; (great cheering;) James imcnanan, oenaior irom rennsy ivania ; James P. Kennedy, of Baltimore; and Mr. Irvin, lately appointed minister to some foreign State? (cheers.) The Chaiinian then read a letter of apology from Mr. Buchanan, concluding with this sentiment :? Irishmen and the Sons of Irishmen, whilst they acknowledge no superior may challenge equality with the wisest and bravHst of oui countrymen?drank with great applause. Air?" The Irish Washerwoman." A letter of apology from Mr. Kennedy was also read ending with an appropriate sentiment, which was drank with applause. The Chairman then proposed the health of the "Hon. John McKeon," there's something else after that I can't make out; (a laugh.) jHope lie left nothiBg after him at Washington!?laughter.) Mr. McKeon's health was then drank ; and the Hon. gentleman returned thanks in appropriate terms,and gave The Sons of St. Patrick, in this country, true patriots, with no lesr of danger and no truckling to expediency. (Drank with cheers.) The Chairman then said that to be provided against all contingencies, they had invited Bishops Hughes and Onderdonk, and they would have invited all the other Bishops if they thought they would have come. But St. Patrick was a great dunce for being born in Lent (Laughter.) These gentlemen had tent letters of apology, but no sentiments, and all he could do was to propose their neaitn. turank with all the honors.) Air?" I'addy Cary." JV.r. John Caulbwkll then rose, and proposed The Bar of New York. (Drank with all the honors.) Mr. Chaulrs O'Connor then rose, and said that although he could say he was unprepared to reply, yet to say that he was unaccustomed to uddress large audieuces in the city ot New York, was a stretch of modesty if not too great for the son of an Irishman, was rather too much even for the members of the bar. Still, although by no means the representative of the New York bar, for a senior (Mr. Girard) sat at his right, and it was only the temerity of the blood which he (Mr. O'Connor) inherited that induced him to present himself on that occasion- But his learned father in his profession had promissed to follow, and when an Irishman exclaimed, " Faugh a ballagh," surely no true man would be found to hold back.? Mr. O'C. then referred, in complimentary terms, to the N. York bar, and went on to s|ieak of In wy era in general, in all ages, as the uniform and steadfast champions of civil liberty. It was to lawyers that England owed that liberty which so nearly assimilated her to this free land. Lawyers had ever been found among the loremost of the advocates, and even the martyrs of liberty. Who had suddenly been called to the head of armies contending for liberty'? Very often they had been called from the desk ot the lawyer. In this land the lawyers were the "salt ot the earth," so far as it respected the maintenance ot civil liberty. He had only a word or two to add in relation to the striking and extraordinary fact, that so large a number of the native born Americans, who stood in the first rank in every profession, were the soas of Irishmen. Fifty years ago, but a few Irish men 01 me nrsi ciass nau emigratea nere 10 seen the asylum denied af home. Among them was one who claimed no great rank, but who came in modest humility, expecting peace and tranquility, not dreaming of distinction. But the hour of danger came, and he was in the firet rank. Mr. O'C. then alluded to the brilliant conduct of James McKeon. (lather of the Hon. j. McKeon) at Niagara, and concluded by proposing the memory of that gallant man,' which was drank in solemn silence. Mr. J. W. Girard then rose, and after soma humorous remarks, gave as a sentiment:? Our native land. Mr. Jjto. E. White gave? The Peasantry of Ireland?Bright examples of filial affection, pure virtue, and disinterested generosity?may their ardent hopes for the regeneration of their country soon be realised. (Cheers.) Mr. Whitino proposed the health of the " Reporters of the New York press"?on whicli there were loud calls for Dr. Houston, of the Herald. Dr. Houston replied, and gave, after some remarks? " Civil and Religion* Liberty?May Irishmen never forget the causo with which the sufferings of their country are identified." Mr. Geo. McBridk, Junr., after some beautiful remarks, proposed? " Woman?Our ornament in prosperity, our solaco in adversity." Drank with tremendous applause. Air?" Oreen grow the Rashes o'!" A number of other appropriate toasts were given, excellent songs sung, and the large and respectable company separated,after an evening of unalloyed enjoyment. From Boston.?liarnden is Co. came in yesterday nfternoon at about three o'clock, with Boston papers ot lhurwlay. They arrived in the Champion by the way of New Haven, and beat the mail several hours.
