Death of the Dake of Sussex?Birth of another ltoyai Princess?Meeting of Parliament?State of the Markets. The Great Western arrived about three o'clock yesterday k.iorning with 87 cabin passengers On the 26th of April the Queen was safely delivered of a Princess; and both msther and child are doing well. The Duke of Sussex died on the 21st of April, 70 yeare old. The sales of cotton for the week ending April 28th amount' to upwards of 26,000 bags?more than 4,000 per day. The better qualities of American are steady, but inferior descriptions hare receded nearly an eighth. Further advices from the United States relative to the weather for sowing the new crop are looked for with some interest. The market presents no striking feature, and is,upon the whole,less buoyant than when the Hibernia sailed. Parliament met after the Easter holidays on Monday, April 24, and, the following night, Sir Robert Peel entered into a somewhat detailed explanation of the reasons which frustrated the commercial treaties with Portugal and Brazil. The failure of Mr. F.llis's mission to the Brizils is considered by the trading community as a national calamity. England, it is contended, by the free traders, has been sacrificed in this instance, to the West India monopoly. After the United States, Brazil is England's best customer; hence the fear of having its markets closed. The Hon. E. J. Stanley is so far recovered from his recent severe illness as to be able to take carriage airings. Packet ship Independence arrived on the 25th. Packet ships Roacius and Europe have arrived. Fornasari and Lablache, Grisi and Mario, were performing at the opera house, London. Mr Macfarren,the celebrated composer and author is dead. Richard Arkwright the richest commoner in Europe died on the 23d of April. The Stkam Ship Great Britain.?It is now fully expected that this wonderful boat will be launched at Bristol in the month of June next. May had been previously fixed upon, but owing to some difficulty in the float.it is now postponed to June. Prince Albert has consented to honor the city of Bristol with his presence on the occasion. She is intended to sail between Liverpool and New York.

I>kath or the Duke or Sussex.?The death of the Duke of Sussex, who expired at his apartments at Kensington, on Friday, the 21st instant, about hall past twelve in the day, has excited more than ordinary attention. For some days previous not the slightest hope was entertained of his recovery, and the fatal termination of his illness, though it excited little surprise, has been productive of an almost universal tee ling of regret at his loss. The journal? most opposed to the liberal politics of the duke, express the highest respect for his amiable and independent character, and a becoming estimation of his scholarship and attainments. The Duke of Sussex loved the Queen from her childhood with the fond affection of a parent, and that love was mutual. By no one will the loss be more keenly felt than by her Majesty. Mrs. Wood, alias Lady William Lennox?The York Coursnt of Thursday contains the following: A paragraph is at present going the round of the London and provincial papers, staling thai Mrs Wood has returned to her husband's residence at Wool ley Moor Thlewe are enabled and authorised to gay is not correct. Mra. Wood has left the convent near Micklegate Bar, in this city, but, instead of returning to her husband, she has retired to a email secluded cottage near Barneley, where she intends to paaa the remainder of her life, free from thecareaand anxieties of the world, in order that she may have more leisure to devote herself to the duties of religion. We are also informed, on the best possible authority, that since Mrs. Wood's conversion to the lioman Catholic teneta, she has not acknowledged,and cannot recognise or consider, Mr. Wood as her husband, the church to which she has allied herself not allowing of any divorce, and therefore that she at the present moment considers herself in 6tnct equity as Lady Wm Lennsx, and under these circumstaucse, as we have just stated, she never can again associate with Mr. Wood. She would not have left our convent, but ahe could not be allowed to join the sisterhood so long as her husband survives ? What she may do in the event of Lord Wm. Lennox's death, of course we are not in a position to say. Ireland. The removal of the mail contract from Mr.Peter Pureed and hia partners, keeps up a sensation in Ireland, which has spread far and wide. The pliers of the most opposite parties are of accord; and the general indignation goes to extraordinary lengths. Constabulaby ?The total expense of the establishment for the year 1842 was ?441,605 5* U&d; ol which amount ?263,473 5s 2d was borne by the counties, cities, and towns ot Ireland. In anticipation of a conflict between a gathering of Rrnealera at Clones, in Monaxhan county, on Monday week, and a body of Orangemen Irom Fermanagh,who were understood to have collected to oppose the meeting, a consiberablc body ol military and police were concentrated on the spot. Their presence did not prevent a fatal aflray; the armed Fermanagh Orangemen came up and at tempted to stop the proceedings; the Repeal party resisted; and in the turmoil a Repealer was "ripped open" and killed. VrsnM. The Constitutionnel has latterly taken up the question of persecution of Protestants in France, as if, under M. Guizot, a Protestant toleration had been abandoned. The ground for the supposition that Protestants are moltsted in the Iree exercise of their religion, is the confirmation by the Supreme Court of Cassation of the decisions of the respective tribunals of Nantes and Versailles, in the case of the Protestant congregation ol SeaneviHe, that the authorization of the government in nece.csary before a pastor can enter upon his duties. That it would bo desirable te have such a law amended no one will dispute; but the law being such, it is no proof of n persecuting disposition, that, when questioned before the pro;>er tribunals, the latter, having no dia cretion in tact, affirm simply that the terms of the law are such and must be complied with. Prince Louis Napoleon has addressed a letter to the public journals from hie prison at Ham, in reference to the rumor that a political umnrsty would be granted on the occasion of the marriage of the Princrss Clementine and of the King's fttr. This epistle is not more discreet than the majority ol this Man'anArfnrmanooa and ia nmy yuuii^ man b|-^ n?u id nine vnvu* lated to procure for him any remiMion of his imprisonment. Five per Cents 120f 90c; Three per centa 82f. 86c; Spanish Active 80$ ; 1'astive 6$; Belgian Five per Cents 105$ Some slight disagreement appears to have arisen between M Ouizot and Admiral Roussin, respecting ceitain appointments to the Marquesas, but ih? diffi rence has been adjusted by their being leit to the Minis er of Marine. The eb vation of Count Drouet D'Erlon to the rank of Marshal of France, on the official recom inendation of Marshal e>oult, apiwurs to have excited a powerful senRation in Paris, aeeing that in 1?15 he stood publicly charged, in a letter f rom the Lieutenant General commanding at Lille, with having traversal the Department ol the North, en 1 E JN E N deavoring, in ihe name of (he usurper, to seduce the troops from (heir allegiance. Paris papers of 26 h ull,with our usual private correspondence, have reached us, hut their conten's are of lit tie interest. The Court will go into mourning for the Duke of Sussex on the 2d of May, lor 11 days. A Council of State was about to deliberate on the amnesty to political offenders, which was expected to be granted on the occasion of the King's fete. The Tuuion journals state that Ibrahim Pacha, the son of Meheinet Ali, was about to vieii hoi u;_ i ! -I-- > * ?*?. |/vn. mo invjrui tiring IU CAclIIIIIlC IIIC niarnnio, dockyard-', and porta of France. The rumor of the retirement from office of th? Ministers of Commerce ?nd Public Works turns out to be premature. So far from resigning their portfolios, these gentlemen have various credits for their respective departments before the Chamber of Deputies. The disarmament of the French fleet is proceeding at a rapid pace. Besides considerable reductions at Toulon, the number of steamers in the Mediterranean were likewise to be diminished, five having been ordered to Atlantic harbors. The minister of Marine has just published a table of the population, cultivation, navigation, tec. of the French colonies for the year 1840. The whole of the population, free and slaves, Hmounted to 568,515, showing an augmentation of 3,732over the preceding year. With respict to the slaves, it is to be remarked that since 1834, the period when a system of accurate statistics relative to the colonies was commenced, the numberofbirtlishasgraduallv increased, whilst the same is not the case respecting deaths The number of marriages was about the same as the year before. The number of slaves set free in 1840 amounted to 1,987, whereas in 1839 it was only 1,240. The number of hectares under sugar cultivation at Martinique, in 1839. was 19 814, and in 1840, 18 765; at Guadeloupe, 20 934 in 1839. and 23,505 in 1840; at Guyana, 1.305 in 1839, and 1,363 in 18-10; at Bourbon, 22,405 in 1839, and 22,977 in 1840 The number of slaves at Martinique, in 1839. was 33 426, and in 1840, 35.1102; at Guadeloupe, in 1839. 30,200. and in 1840, 34,520; at Guyanna. in 1839, 3,454, and in 1810. 3,489; at Bourbon, in 1839, 27,157, and in 1840. 25,715. The total production has increased in 1840 by 500,000 kilogr. The general imports have diminished in tne proportion of three millions on the average of years from 1H33 to 1839,which reduces them to sixty lour millions. The exports, on the contrary, have increased four and a half millions in the same time, giving an amount of ntty-eignt minions. The Paris journals of Tuesday state that the Marine minister has asked for ?241).000 ?five millions of francs?for the expense of establishments at the Marq lesas and Tahiti. He estimated the annual expense at ?100,000 a year The force to be sent was 1,200 men. The Minister declared, that the Marquesas first occupied were so fertile as to be able to provide for the wants of the French whalers, which were to crowd the Pacific. The report of ihe commission drawn up by the Duke de Broglie proposes, first, a project of law, fixing ihe first of January, 1863, as the epoch of slavery ceasing in the French colonies All their s'aves! to remain in their present condition, with the exception of the following modifications, to be introduced by royal ordonnance. Civil rights are granted to slaves during these ten years; but they cannot plead those rights in a court of justice without being represented by a curator ad hoc. Boats and vessels, arms and powder, are excepted from the kind of property which slaves may possess. The peculiurn and the right of a slave to purchase his liberty is established. Emancipated slaves are not to enjoy political rights. Children born free are not included in this. The emancipated are to be forced, for five years, to engage themselves to planters, and, of course, forced to reside in ihe colony. The Governor in Council shall fix each year the maximum and minimum of salaries. Disciplinary workhouses shall be established for the refractory. The indemnity to the planters will be 150 millions of francs, in four per cents. This sum will be distributed in 1867, with the accumulated interest, to the owners of slaves, those who have old and infirm slaves agreeing to keep and feed them Another law will provide for the emancipation of all children born of slaves since 1S38. The indemnity to lie ?20 for children who have reached the age of seven, &c. The intelligence from the vine districts respecting the effects of the frost on the 12th, 14th and 15th in stant. Languedoc experienced little or no injury. The loss of the Bordeaux vines may be estimated at on" third of the crop; around Libourne, in two nigh' one-half of the buds were destroyed In the c na i/adjoining Cognac, the vines des premieres ! i and Champagne suffered considerably Irom the ., -tt of the 12th aud 14tn. In the two departments ?>t the Chareuto a similar calamity occurred. In Champagne the vines suflered greatly. Anew method of shipping corn at Dantzic,which threw some barges out of use, caused a riot on the 11th The military were called out, and the disturbance was not quelled until they had fired; one man being shot dead, and many others wounded and ridden down by the cavalry. Spain. Our accounts from Madrid are to the 19th. The Cortes continued to be occupied in the verification of the returns. Among 99 deputies who have been declared duly elected within the preceding two days isSenor Prim, lately deprived of tiis commission of Colonel, for his conduct duting the late revolt at Barcelona. The new ministry had not been ap pointed. The following list had, however, been circulated :?M. Camouzano, as President and Minister for Foreign Affairs; Alonzo, Justice: General Iriarte, the Interior; General Chacon, War; Pita Pizarro, Finance; General Cnpaz, Marine; loaehim Lopez, President of the Congress. In the event of the accession of Don Joachim Lopez, no difficulty was apprehended in obtaining a cabinet capable of carrying on efficiently the business of the government. Meanwhile the ministers, pro tempore, were about to introduce two bills of some, importance into the C^iambcr ol Drputies; one to define the law of libel, the other for the establishment of banks throughout Spain, having lor their object to secure the capital subscribed by foreign capitalists, in the same manner as that of foreigners vested in mining companies is protected. An abundant harvest is looked for throughout Spain, arising from the abanduuce of rain during the spring months. We announced in our last the dissolutian of the ministry. Since then, matters have made butalight progress. On the 15 n, the Chamber of Deputies held a short sitting to examine a number of petitions connected with the elections, which were referred to the committee, and then adjourned to the following day, Easter Sunday. It was not believed that all the election returns could be verified, nor the House constituted, before the close of last week.? Then only could the Ministry be constructed; and should M. Cortina, the opposition candidate, be raised to the Presidency of the Chamber, he would, in all probability, be intrusted by the regent with the formation of the cnbinet, into which MM Sancho. Luzuriaga, and Laserna will no doubt enter.? MM. .lose Calatrava and Gonzales haying been ex eluded from the Chamber, the ministerial candidate tor the Presidency will either be M. ArguelleaorM. Fernandez de los Kios The Committee of the Senate charged with preparing the address in answer to the Regent's speech had not yet completed its task It was to lie drawn up by either M. Marliani or M Quintano, the Precentor ot the Queen. The question of the prolongation of the minority of the Queen was beginning to be agitated. The Casiellano contains a letter Irom Saragossu of the the 12th, atanrg that the Ayuntamientoand national militia of that city intended to present a petition in favor of that project to the Cortes. Prince Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte had arrived at Cadiz When the Regent returned the visit of the Infante Don Francisco de Paula on the 9ih,their meeting was very cool. The Kejrent said to the Prince, utir cnaracters are reversed; 1, a man of ine people, am obliged to defend the throne; and you, an Infante of Spain, now side with the Opposition, arrayed against the Government and the Queen " The Madrid Gazette of the 10th inst., publishes the draught of a bill on trading banks. It contains the lollowing clausesi?"Article 1. The Government it authorized to deliver permissions for the establishment of banks in the provinces of the Peninsula and the adjacent islands. 2 hacli bank shall have assigned to it a district, in which no other bank of a similar nature can be established. 3. It will not be permitted to any bank to issue notes without apprizing the Itoyal Commissioner, who must give a written authority for that purpose." ?,The Patriots nnnounces the arrest of the Treasurer of the Sinking Fund, in consequence of a deficiency in his balance "This measure was necessary," pays the Patriots, " in order to support a sjsicin of morality indispensable in the administration of the finance department." The Patriots mentions that the troops quartered in Andalusia lud received a considerable portion ol their arrears of pay. An extraordinary express from Madrid, with intelligence to the Ifhh, has been received. The Ma drid Gazette publishes two official documents emanating from the Minister- of Finance. The first is a formal arder of M. Oalatrava to the Director, General of the Stoking Fund, deairing him to pre * , * > ' ' ' * * # W YO EW YORK. SATURDAY pare for the payment of the half year's interest on the New Three per Cents ., due on the 30th ol June next, "applying to that purpose the 10,000,000 reals which the houses of Rothschild are to deliver in the month ot May or June, on account of the quick silver contract, taking care to remit to the foreign creditors at the proper time the sums necessary to complete the dividend, taking into account the 39,360f. sterling of hills upon London already delivered to the office of the Sinking Fund for that pur pose on the 22 f March last." The second document contains an exposition of the reasons which induced M. Calatrava to recommend the Regent to permit the establishment of depots for goods in transit to and from the colonies (gnitros juokibidoa) in the ports of the Peninsula Matters were beginning to assume a more settled appearance in the Congress. rhe German Universal Gazette announces, under date Helgrade, 12th inst., that Prince Alexander, accompanied by the metropolitan and the primate of Servia, had repaired to bchabacz, where an insurrection had taken place Several districts were in open revolt, and it was feared that the troops were disaffected. Portugal. The Inst accounts from Lisbon announce that the negotiations relative to a commercial treaty wiih England, are lor the present at an end. Lord Aberdeen adhered resolutely to the around which he took four weeks since, and rejected, as of too unsatisfactory a nature to be entertained, the last proposition of Portugal. Th? British Envoy has been directed peremptorily to break offthe negotiations? " interrupt" is the official word. The remaining point in dispute bslween the two countries is a dnty ol 31. per pound upon woollen cloths?a sum which, upon the existing outies, amounts to less than j?(J,(KX) per annum, or 25 contos?a consideration of no more than a feather's weight when poised against the national advantages to be secured tor Portugal, and for purposes of revenue not to be lor a moment regarded. A production, amounting to 800,000 pipes ol wine per annum?for such is the average vintage of Portugal and Madeira?is sacrificed out o* regard for the producers of a couple ot thousand bales of coarse, ill-dyed, ill-woven cloili, and the smugglers ot some hundreds more?a monopoly of the feeblest character. The Diario announces officially that the tariff negotiations have been interrupted. Turkey. Letters from Con-tantinople of the 7th have reached us. The beare_r of the ultimatum of the Emperor Nicholas relative to the Servian question presented by M. Boutenieff to Sarim Effendi, had been instructed to wait eight days lor a reply Th? Turkish government seems determined to make no approach to concession, and should no satisfactory answer be forthcoming within the time prescribed, the Ru sian Ambassador will, it is believed, demand his passports. India. Calcutta papers to the 5tn ult. inclusive, brought to Alexandria l>v the extra steamer Tennasserim, to Malta by the Cyclops, and thence to Marseilles by the Acheron, have been received. The papers thus received are almost destitute of political intelligence. The successor of the lale Maharajah of Gaulior was to be installed on the 20th ult. and no opposition to his accession was to be apprehended. Lord Ellenbnrough was still at Agra, whither he had proceeded from Delhi on receipt of the intelligence of the late Maharajah's decease. No news of a later date than that received by the ordinary mail had been received in Calcutta either from Scinde or Cabul. Fashions for May* [From the Ladies' Magazine of Fashion.] The newest and most fashionable material of the season is the cameleon silk, deriving Its name from the ever.varyiug shades it assumes in different lights; this and taffetas nacre, P. kin Bengal, Kcossais gitana, bareges of many styles, foudords, mousselines, cachemire, fit", are now replacing the thicker materials of winter; all shades of grey and vioiet are fashionable. Buttons are much used in re. dingotea and robes of demi neglige; they are made of colored glass, agate, stones, 8ic., having a gold point in the centre, and are of a round form. Black lace is almost an indispensable accompaniment of every toilette; comails are of lace, scarfs of lace, flounces of lace, lie., Sic. Point de Venise is also much in demand, end is made in every color; and the patterns are either antique, reniasssnce, or pompadour, it is also made in black and white for shawls, or scarfs of cachemire or barege Dresses continue to he made unreasonably long, particularly behind; the trim mingsaretwo very deep flounces with ruche, two tucks, or two bissis placed in a lengthened wave; the oodies continue high and tight, but many have full hacks, or a litlle fullness on the shoulders, and the ceinture is not excluded; the pelerine is a little changed in form, con* cealing less of the figure; the sleeves htp still tight, hut those s la Lnuss XII'. have many admirers, and it is expected will become more general as the season advances. For evening dresses, gauze or linen, forming double skirts in two colors, the one pink, the other lilac, are much admired, producing the effect so much approved of In the cameleon silk; the sume style is also applied to bonnets of gazelisse; it produces the opal tints. Manti'les ol black fillet, with trimmings of the same, will be very fashionable this season; also the mauteaii Venitieno in black or >thub, uueu wiin iiiic or pniK snx; leans 01 giacsiiK are hollowed out at the throat, and trimmed a la grande mere. Crispins and camails of tarlatnne over silk, are made with tour rows of lace and embroidery; the various styles of mentalrt all form pelerine behind, and the ends re rounded; they are trimmed with a ribbon a la viell*; trimmings of ribbon quil ed, and bands oi silk decouples in frstons are much in use. Bonnets are made inclininr more over the lace, and not quite so deep at the ears, and the crowns are not so low behind, but rather expose the hair; the more simple for morning wear are trimmed with plain ribbons. Capotes a coulisses are not much oma mi nted, and s me are made of straw with silk crowns, with merely a nceud, and long ends at the side; the chou is somatimos of plain net. White satin bonnets are covered with lace, and ornamented with a long white feather; the Penelope bonnet is the t ewest style, and capotes a la Madonne, with long veil) of tulle. Ltghorns, whether plain or sewed, are now in favor, and vary in form and trimming according to the use required. Bonnets ef etofte sylphide are made rather close, with a narrow bouillonne of tulle, and bunch of lilac or fleur de cedras; pailles de rii mixed with silk form pretty capotes, with sprigs o! May and feather leaves, or wreaths sf auhepinr. Markets. London Monkt Marxkt, April 58th.?Consols have been rather firmer this morning, the quotations being now 96} tor Money and Account. This firmer tone has been sustained in the face of what, as times ago, is cou?i. dered a rather large sale of Three and a Half per Cent Stock (X-to.Oflb) not improbably made in conse quence of the ratiocinations of some of our morn-. ing contemporaries about reductions of the rate of inter est. Our advice to the public upon this subject, however, is, not to be at all alarmed, but to remain as they are until the appearance of the budget, which we have reason to believe will not inclndseny change in that direction during the present year. The settlement in the Foreign Bond Market has apparently gone oft'without any crash amongst the gamblers ia Spanish. The Fivo per Cents were at the highest 53, and the Three per Cents 31j, since which the former has receded to 5.'} and the latter to 33. The Bears have, of course, had tne penalty to pay, hut they may console themselves with the hope that their time is coming, if they are only able to stand out long enough. The accouat brought from Ma.lrid of provision being made for the pay ment of the dividend due on the 30th ot June on the Three per Cents, is considered to have been shaped and moulded into form put posely for the settlement this day. It any reliance is to he | laced on the decree nrovitling for these navments for inree or four veers. there clearly seems no necessity for men* being said on tho subject in public,but to forward the money without noi?o or pirsde It Id, indeed. believed that the faction opposed to the Recent hare emissaries hers specially lor the purpose el running down the credit of the govern mont, and this tuny furnish some apology for the apparently supererogatory notice gluen hy Calatrava, with the view of counteracting their design Mexican Boads have been done at and Portuguese Three per Cents at 40}, but tho transactions have boon of no amount worth notice.

Livkrpooi. Coax Marrkt, April28 ?The improvement perceptible in other branches of trade has not extended to our market, though increased employment for the

operative might reasonably have been expected to have produceda better demand lor the main article of food. The fresh supplies being only moderate coastwise and from Ireland, and scaicely anything having been received from abroad for some time post, the imports have not had a tendency to depress prices, still they have gradually receded; wheat must be quoted 2d per 70 lbs lower than on the 18th inst. There was rather a firmer tone in the wheat trade this morning, and a moderate amount of business was done at the decline. Flour was in better request at previous quotations. Oats were littlv inquired lor, but they were tolerably steady in value, and several parcels of oalmeal changed hands at 19s to 19s 91 per '140 lbs, uc cording to quality. Bailey, beans, and peas were in slow demand, at former rates.

Violation of the Pilot lAtwt ?Robert McNally was tri. ed for a misdemeanor in violating the pilot laws, hy piloting the brig Attakapas to *ea hy the way of Sandy HomU, on the 13th of Februnry last Emery Corvan testified that he saw McNally on board of the vessel on the day she left to go to sea, and that the captain of the vessel and McNally hath told him that the latter intended to pilot t'le vessel to ten. although hn told the Captain that McNally was not a licensed pilot. Witness saw McNally leave the wharf in the vessel, and standing at the helm when she pas-ed towards Governor's Island. On cross-examination lor the accused, witness stated that he could not say that McNally took the vessel to sea, or through 8-indy Hook pilotage, as ho did not sen him sf<er the brig passed Governot'a Island. The delence, conducted hy Enoch E Camp, Esq., called no witnesses, but contended that the indictment was not fully proved, as there was no evidence helorn the jurv that the accused took the vessel through Bandy Hook, as was alleged ; that the might have pasaed through Hurl ua'e, or never went to s.-a, or tnn accused rnignt navu left the ves-el at Staten Island or Kort Diamond, or evi n Governor's Island. There was no evidence before the jury to the contrary, and notwithstanding the construction thattheco'ilt might muke upon the law, he contended that it was absolutely necessary lor the prosecution to prove that the accused actually piloted the vessel through Sandy Hook.before they could ask a verdict of conviction. The Recorder charged that the law presumed a person guilty of the oftence of violation of the pilot laws who was seen on board a vevscl hound to sea, acting in the capacity o( pilot, and that such presumption was necessary, as even admitting that the accused had left the vessel before reaching Sandy Hook, the jury would see that in t 'king possession of her as a pilot before that peri, od, prevented a licensed pilotfrom taking her to sea, and thus virtuslly the law was violated. The counsel for delence took exceptions to this construction oi the law by the court, and still contended that to convict under the law it was necessary to prove that thn accused actually took the vessel through Sandy Hook pilotage, or was seen on board of her while approaching such pilotage. The jury returned a verdict of guilty, and the court stated they would impose sentence at the next term.

T ~W "1* A 13. Anniversary HtlMf of the American Hoard >?' -'orclgii Missions. The annual meeting of this highly meritorious and valuable Society took place yesterday forenoon. We never before saw so many bonnets at any public meeting. There were not more than fifty male* in the Tabernacle, exclu sive of the clergy. We are sorry that we cannot speak in such warm terms of the beauty of the ladies, as hava been usually elicited by the appearance ofthe female audienci at these religious gatherings. The greater portion ot IV limit:liters o! Israel assembled on the occasion,were aged homely and devout. There were, however, a few very pretty, blooming, p'ump country girls, whose cheerfu smiling lacer shed some light and life in the desert arouni them. There was one lovely young creature who stoor in one of the aisles, gracefully leunii g against one of th> gigantic columns w hich support the dome of the build ing. She v.as fashionably dressed, with great teste ant simplicity. She had dark lustrous eyes?a clear ex punded lorehead?rich blown glossy hair?cheeks tingei] with the most delicate rosy hue?and n figure, which a rich silk shawl half concealed and half revealed in all itf faultless symmetry. Two or throe rather impertinent fellows, with long strait hair, and tho everlasting yard ol shirt collar, aoon stared the lovely auditor out ol countenance, and she retreated to another paitof the building Tho clergymen had apparently profited by our affectionate reproof, respecting the hori id creaking boots and scrambling up on the platform. They were remarkably well-hi-liaved, and in general conducted themselves with great decorum and decency. The chair was occupied hv the Hon. Thoo. Frelingliny sen; Dr. Williston offered up an appropriate pray <-r; after w hich a statement of the operations of the Boaid during the past year was read iiy the Rev. Dr. Armstrong, one of tho secretaries. The missions are arranged into three grand divisions. The first to nominal Christian countries ; the second to civili7.ed Heathen nations; the third to rude and barbarous Pagan tribes. The first of these divisions includes Syra and the adjacent countries. Here the society has five missions ; eleven stations ; thirty-six ordained missionaries; three physicians; thirty assistant missionaries, and thirty-two native helpers, all ol whom have been followers of Mahomedaniim. The second division includes Western and Southern India, Singapore, Siam, China, 8cc. la these coun ri> a there are eight missions; twentyseven stations; thirty-eight ordained niissionaiies; two physicians; thirty-nine assistant missionaries; and eightytwo helpers. The third division includes Borneo, West01 n and i-outhern Africa, tho Sandwich Islands, and the Indians in the Oregon Territory, the western and other Statcsof the Uuion, and in Canada. In thesu parts there are 13 Missions, 40 Stations, An Ordained Missionaries, 131 Assistant Missionaries, 3 native preachers, and a large number ol native helpeis and assistants. The summary is IB missionaries, a' stations, 133 ordained missions, -100 assistant missionaries, and 117 native helpers, including altogether 460 missionary laborers. In connection w ith the missions, there are 17 printing establishments, with 31 presses, irom which have buen issued woi ks in i'i dil ferent languages, spoktn by 450,000,000 people. The missionaries have under their care 618 Free Schools, con taming 27 (?>o scholars, ana in B Seminaries ami 28 Boat a iug Sclioolr, there are 1100 pupils. The missions number siitv churches, with 27,000 church members. The report then went on in detail to examine the progress which had been made in the various countries, describing the aspect which they pressnted tobe highly encouraging, and calling on Christians, of all danomina110us, to put forth increased i llorts for the conversion of the world, and speaking in high terms of the a d received from the progress ol the temperance cause. It then nl. luded to the Sandwich Islands, where it said there were twenly-threechurches, with 19,200 members, 2,440 of whom ha 1 been received during the previous year.? Nine houses of worship, six at which were of stone, had been erected during the same period. There were three hundred und thirteen common schools, with 14 658 scho lars. Tw? nty-six books and tracts had been printed it the native lunguage, numbering 120,000 copies and thir teen millions of pages, of which eight millions had beet at the expense of the American Bible and Tract Society Seventy one thousand copies had been bound at the bind ery, ol which 60.0C0 had been distributed. The averag attendance at Divine worship was 23,000, and the who! number admitted to Church membership, trom the first was 26 434 Sinco the last meeting, twenty missionarie and assistants nad been appointed, and the >nme numbe dismissed, piincipally on accountof ill health, tighter have embarked lor abroad, and seven who have visiter thiir native land, have returned to their station*. Twelv have returned to this country, and nine have died. Tin receipt during the period from the 1st August. 1842, to 30tl April, 1843, were $101,230, ivhich was $37,620 li ss that the appropriations for the some period, and $93,160 lesi than the receipts for the same period during the last year. The Rev. H R. Hohsihotox, of the Coy Ion mission, wai the first speaker. He commenced his address by giving s sketch ol the Hindoo mythology. It included all the abominations ot heathenism The rites of their religion were too gross and obscene for description in that meeting There is no vice in the land which does not Audits ex ample in the gods. Next to this lowest depth of idolatry and abomination, v >s the "philosophic course," which worshipped the en terns of the male and female energies Then they had the ?cetic course," which Included all sorts of sell torniei -. (The Beverrnd geutlemen sooki so indistinctly, th it.tough we wereen the platform w< could Hot underst ,nd wr.a -entence out of ten ) To uphold the iniquitous Hindoo system of paganism, all th>'ir science?theirastronomy?astioiogv?books'of all sorts were appropriated 1 hey looked on the Bible as a horri tde thing. Their morality was altogether distiuct Iroin their religion. A man might be very religious, and y *t very wicked. The most religious man was very often the last man that would he trusted. (This is, unhappily, sometimes the case, the speaker might have added, v ith perfect truth and propriety, in Christain countries) The land of the Hindoos was the best commentary on the morality and philosophy of Greece. Mr. H. then went on to speak ot the only manner in which that land of idolatroas superstition was to be converted- It was by the diflusion ofChtistian education. [Here a stupid-looking country clergyman, wi h boots of more than usual dimensions studded nith large hob-nails?the orthodox atvlul shirl collar?soiled white neckcloth?coarse dirty whitey hrown hair, which stood up like "quills upon the fretful porcupine"?a low forehead?and a horrid snuffle? cam< scrambling upon the piaifoim, jostled us out of our seat and effectually prevented us from hearing the conclusion oi Mr. Horsington's address.] A missionary hymn was here sung, first in the language of the Sandwich Islands hy one of the Missionaries. and then in Rnglish hy the cboir. Johm Thommou, Ksq., of Poughkeepsie was the neat speaker. Mr. T. made a much better, more eloquent and more effective speech than any of tlieclergymen we have heard at tip se meeting*. He rebuked with grest vehemence the " griping parsimony?the close fisted covrtousnefs of God's people." This was what turned the child from hi* school, the student from his hooks, the printer from hisprnss. end the missionary from his pulpit He wanted 'o flee some more of the spirit of the datinll-ss Paul who saw no fear in the sneer of the Greek, no terror in the imperial brow. That Board must be sustained. They must cut the purse strings of the churches. Mr. T then went on verv eloquently to speak'of the vast field for missionary operations which had so recently been opened up in China. The Bihle?the Tract?could not do the great work ot evangelizing the world?it was the church?the preacher of the word that olone could do it. Throneh tin- leavm of the R tile the world was in a for mant. All wan pregnant and omninous of change. And it wus change for the hetter. The foot of the mesaenger ot glad tiding'wai every where. In a much hotter sense than whi n applied to the dominion of Kngland, it could he snid that the aun never set 011 the dominions of the cross. Professor (ionnr.it 11, of New Haven, next addressed the meeting, lie said that he was in ill health, bnt eould not refrain from taking some part in that last art of the great religious drama?the "holy week" of the American churches. After giving egptetsion to ? me "scattered thoughts," the Professor went on to speak ol the mourn fill question which was now presented to the Sociaty, whether or no the expenditure of the Board was to he reduced fSO.OOO per annum The speaker here became rather prosv, and was listened to with a good deal of im patience. He concluded hy expressing his ferrenl pra\er that before the end of the seven weeks the *M),nrO would he forthcoming. II he had the money himself, he thought he would lay it down on that tsti|? at onco. He often wandered that forty or fifty of the noon who could do it, did not come right forward and ptll down a thousand a piece. But even if they did. perhaps the treasurer would not do right to accept it. The dona lion should come from the great body of the church. The Rev. Mr. Mci-micn, o( Madras, next advanced to the front of tho platform. There was a little ustle throughout the house in consequence of the ladies pulling out their nice white pocket handkerchiefs and fanning themselves after thn prosy apocch of Or floodrich Mr. Scuddrr did not like this, ond stretching forth his hands, shouted out at the top of a shrill voice?"When the King speaks, let there he silence!" Tl.il rather original and startling application ol the ooripture test, created a eon. eiderable sensation 1 mongst the audience. Mr. Scudder went on to speak about the grandly-furnished mantel pieces, hruisvt* carpets and fashionable rose wood chairs ol the aristocratic members of the church. If a heathen convert saw these things he would say, "kh ! this indeed must he the place where they pour out their contributions for tho salvation of souls !" Bnt it was rather the other war. The finances ol the Beard were in a hazardous state. The Secretary had written him a let. tor informing him of it, and saying that he feared it might b? "ruinous to soma" "Ruinous toaome!" Why methinks said Mi. H.I already see preparations on account ol it making in hell. Forbid it, GethaemaneForhM it. Calvary ! Forbid it, y? flames anil firei of the second death !

He waked them up however by a very interesting anecdote of a little girl in Alexandria, the daughter of a seacsptiin Her father had given herfite dollar*, which shocontributed to the Missionary treasury.

We foun.l about 160 or 100 people preient, men and i wument in about equsl proportion*. There were several i gentlemen of color preient, and not a few of the young la lics sat with their heads uncovered. , It "a* altogether the molt lingular, most remarkable, on.l mint het< rogenoti* collection of people ever btfore 1 gathered together- black spirits and white, blue spirits j and grey, all colors and complexions ?representatives of all known religious, and not a lew that never were before known?but nil radical to the last possible degree. J There was William Lloyd Garrison, whose opinions aro as unknown us h.sname is well known?although he 1 is known to bo ami slavery. anti church, anti-priest, antibible, anti all existing order and organization.

J ?Joined the Perfectionist! under Novel, and espouied silk worm;?went into the Morua Multicaulis speculation, in which he cleared several thousand dollars; but finally deserted his sillc worms just a moment hefore the mulberry speculation all burst up. In short, Mr. William Green, Junr has run the gauntlet through all known and unknown religious, embraced all, and deserted all in turn ? and has, finally, planted his feet beyond ultima thuU upon some terra incognita?the same, we presume, aa that from which tho members of this society all hail?or at leaat to which they are all hound. We should not have said so much of Mr. Green, (and the half has not been told,) were it not that hn is a fair specimen of the members generally of this society. There was the ltcv. William H. < banning, the son of the justly celebrated Dr. William Ellerv Chinning, tho great Unitarian preacher, of Boston, whose name and writings aro so well known throughout the world. Mr. Chaiuiiiig may be considered as representing the Unitarian interests. There was also present a wild Yankee animal, all alive , Just caught among the Oreen mountains of Vermont. It was altogether ot a nonuescrint stiecies. not heinsr laid down byLinmeus. Iti upper parts resembled a bundleof long blown human hair, well hstcballed, with a man's fam- peeping out from the midit of it. The Hair sat attha reporters' table, and we underatood that it went by the nam* of C. 8. Murray, from Vermont, editor of the Vermont Telegraph. It had on a pair of peppei and aalt pants, blue coat and breia buttons, a shirt collar, and nothing elm around its neck, and a striped vest. It was taking notes lor the Telegraph, and appeared to be perectly harmless and quiet. We did not sea it feed. Not to speak further of individuals?the meeting was evidently composed oi Kourierites, Abolitionists, Transcendentalists. Perfectionists, Unitarians, Unionists, and Experimentalists, together with sundry other shreds and patches, from almost all known religions?like King Da. vid's army, which 8aul hunted like partridges upon tha ' mountains - that is, every one who was in debt, every one ' who was distressed, he., nil gathered themselves unto Da. vid, and he became i heir captain. Mr. Whitino.oI Mai1 sachueetts, was speaking when we arrived. Wa did not gather the scope of hit remarks, but presume, however, 1 they were lirst rate. The Hcv- W. H. Chaissiiso theu rose to address tha I" met,ii g. He was greeted with a round of applause. It p will be rocolli cted that this is the gentleman whose very " lucid seimon we reported not long since upon "Mun made in the imageol Gad." His ri marks to-day did not * differ essentially from those expressed in the sermen aliur ded to?so far as we understood them. H Mr. Simi-so* of New York, her* volunteered an address, d on tha free speaking principle. The brethren and sisters p did not seem to know him ?or whether be were ortbo'' dox or not. He said he understood this was to be a meeting 1 on Social Reform, "and I beg," safd he, "that it may be 1 a meeting on Social Reform, and not on social deatruc1 Uon.'' He however soon got inextricably snarled up in 1 the doctriuea of the society?was called to order?hissed ?and one gentleman ssid he could testifv that Mr. Simn. ion wii always disturbing their public meeting!- Hera the bundle of Hair roie up and ?aid, "Moderation, beloved brethren and listen ; let our good brother go on and free hia mind."?Mr. Simpson then went on. On conclusion, he said he was an abolitionist of long standing, and dyed in thn wool Titr. Hair then rose up and replied to Mr. Simpson, and enlarged upon the principles of the association. In the course of his remarks, he said it bad been charged upon the society that they were creating conlusiou and disorder in thn world. Well, really, ssid he, if we do confuse and disorder this poor world any more than it is now ' confused and disordered, I could wish that we had let it alone, and that I had staid at home among the green mountains, and planted my potatoes and corn. (Oreat cheering.) Again he said, "If that be a pulpit (pointing to the desk) I say that place is no holier than the place where my horse eats his osts. Jesus Christ was not l<orn in a pulpit, but in a manger. (Tremendous applause.) W'e took a great fancy to this bundle ot Hair? it is manifestly a great genius, a shrewd, deep, clear and boll thinker?a perfect original?great relormer? thorough radical?another Martin Luther?and altogether a most extraordinary man. We are particular t? give him thia ticket of recommendation, because ho very respectfully requested the Reporter of the Herald to saad a copy, containing this report, to the "Vermont Tela1 graph." Brandon Vermont It shall he done. This tsocie'y of Mortal Reform is undoubtedly a corpo. ' ration; where ita bead may he, we know not; but tnia > is undoubtedly its beard and Hair, for it has seen no razor < nor aciaaors for at least IA years. From this organ of the 1 Society we gathered that it goes dead against ail tobacco, codes, tea, caitle,swine (in the shape of meat we suppose) and various other things of that character. From Mr. Chaisisiro,in another speech, we learnt that the movement of thia society is to illustrate the practicability of loving our neighbor as ourselves. Its pro blem is jirrfict community with perjret individuality. Mr. Chsnnii'g pronounced a most eloquent encomium upon the work of Charles Colgate, which, from the cneerswitli which its mention was greeted, we should Judge must be thesociety's text boek. Mr. Thomas Eablv, o' Philadelphia,neat arose to make inquiries. He, however, gave evidenc ol being in a very duik end benighted state o> mind?and got se entangled in the doctrines ol the Society that be appeared to know nothing?where he was nor whaljhe wna talking about. Ona thing, however, he was clear ' pon?to wit, that Mr. Kidgewav, John Jacob Astor, and inch men, wera insane. and ought to be put in a lunatic aa> lum. Butlhe waa not clear hut that a great many other* alio deterred equally to be put in lunatic asylum*. Here Mr. Channing ?et him aright by telling him that the whole world wa* now in one big lunatic asylum, and the question was, how are we to get out. This puzzled Mr. K.arle again, for he did not know how the world was to get out. About this time the right ol suffrage wa* touched upon, and we discovered that the ancictv goea for the natualand inalienable right of petticoat suffrage. In the course of their discussions we also discovered that the Society goes agsinst all present legislation, and believe* that " our legislators ere all villain*." Mrs. rtoiK.of the city of New Vof lc, then came forward to nddra.?* the meeting. We understood that she is a Poland ladv, and has been (or some time in this city : but no one seemed to kr ow much almut her. She is about -Hi year* of age, has n pleasant countenance, is decidedly handsome, at good figure and personal address. She wore a pretty light colored mousrlin de laine dnas, had a One rassimere shawl thrown gracefully over her shouldeis, over her cheeks at d wound about her ears, Irom which her raven Mark hair was neatly put up,with braids falling hung large golden ear-drops--a hair necklsce Inst coed about her neck with a diamond brooch, still farther adotn. ed with a neat embroidered collar and ribbon, white silk gloves upon her hands, a heatitilul bend hag carelessly hanging from her right arm?and last, thangh not leaat, her well formed person, was gracefully rounded off with a di?cre?t>nd " social'' bustle.
