To morrow I leave Pans, and in three days more embark on board the good 6hip Argo, Captain Anthony, tor New York I am now prepared with ample materials to give a full, extensive, and accurate view of the extraordinary situation <md prospects of all western Europe, including France, England, Ireland, Scotland and Spain. With the exception of this fine country, France, each ot these na'ions, is full of radical troubles of all kinds. France is the roost prosperous country in the world, after the United States, and all its troubles are sentimental. Louis Philippe is the Augustus of his countrv. and is fillinr it with industry, art, science, trade, commerce, and every natural kind of happiness. On the contrary, Englaud is in the commencement oi a series of small changes that never will stop, till some great change is | roduced. It is impossible to enter into minute particulars now, lor it would extend to columns to give a full and correct view. Great changes have taken place in Paris and in France since I was last here. Streets are opened? new house? built?railroads constructed, and every element of wraith and prospe rity in the highest state ot development. The railroad from Puristo Rouen is a capital one, and they are now engaged in con* Mructing one all the way to Havre. I have made enquiries at the proper department, and the line of steamers to New York will not begin till next May. The will first start from Cherbourg, but this port will only be used till the port of Havre be made ready for their reception ? me plans ot L.ouis Philippe, in respect to these lines, are magnificent, and I have no doubt ihey will materially interfere with the English lines ? All Europe is in a transition state in regard to commerce, manufactures, and internal improvements.? That steam power, now applied to every purpose, will have a radical, political, and moral influence, every one must see ; but it is yet dim and doubtful what that may be. Great changes are coming. Mr. Bennett and his Assailants ?The following letter has been addreesed by Mr. Bennett to the Editor of the London Morning Herald, and extensively copied thence into the English and Irish papers :? To the Editor of the Morning HeraldSir?1 will only trouble you wiili a brief and prompt denial of the statements of Daniel O'connell, and ot his two witnesses, Mr. Silk Buckingham and Captain Marryatt. There is not one word of truth in the stories ot either of these persons against my character, and I challenge them and all the world to bring a tittle of any evidence. Buckingham, indeed, only pretends to tell a stery he heard from another person, but if Marryatt ever received the note askinz twentv <tnll?ro l* >? j:j w J VII LA V- PU*D lie UiU, it never came irom me, and it was a gross and palpable lorsery. I despise and laugh at all such impotent slandejs.

The idea that a system ot personal abuse and extortion would in eight years create a newspaper ot nearly 30,000 in circulation, is certainly preposterous to every man of common een*e. On my return to New York 1 shall set all these and other points in the strongest light. 1 mean to give such an account of the state of England, her hopes and her dangers, that will at least have the menr of being truthful and independent. J am, fir, your obedient servant, James Gordon Bknmett, Proprietor of the New York Herald. Pans, September 20 Nominations for Assembly.?The Democratic Delegates to the County Assembly Convention, met last evening at Tammany Hall, and made the following nominations:? Thomas Jeremiah, ot the 17th Ward. Richard J. Smith, " 10th " Michael Burxe, " lit " Wm A Jaiisen. " >d " Edward Baniord, " 8th " The Convention adjourned at about half put on? o'clock, te meet again on Wednesday evening next. The Whigs meet on Monday night for the same purpose. The Liberty oe Abolition Paety, held a preparatory meeting laet evening at Washington Hall, for the purpose of nominating candidate* for county officer*, to be supported at the ensuing election ? Tne assemblage was not large, owing to the lack ot previous notice or want of public interest in their movements, we dou't know nor don't care which. Leonard Gibbs, Esq. was called to the Chair, and Geobqe W. Kobe appointed Secretary. a committee of ten, consisting of the chairman and secretary, Horace Dresser, Esq., and seven others, were chosen by the meeting to select suitable candidates, the names of which are to be reported to a subsequent meeting tor public sanction. The Post Office.?The postmaster ol this city mtorms us that he did get the two Southern mails which arrived on Thursday, despatched by the Great Western, and therefore the Southern correspondents need be under no apprehension; but, as the time ol departure ol the Great Western was two o'clock, and her punctuality is rigid and notoriouc, it was creditable to Captain Hoskins and his agent) here, that he held over for some minutes, for their reception, and to the postmaster himsell, to whose efficiency the sorting and safe delivery of the letters was attributable. More Correspondence.?On Monday next we ahall publish a letter and some valuable articles received from London, in which much interesting matter will be found respecting the English Corn Law League, the Canadian Corn.Law, Free Trade, and other kindred subjects.

Kui-op?*n Corrripondrnrrt One object which Mr. Bennett had in view in hia vnit to Europe was to arrange a novel, original,graphic, and accurate sy?tf m of correspondence with the Herald, whereby all the int> renting incidents of the old world shall be lurnished to the readers of the Herald in a pleasing and instructive manner. From the correspondent stationed by Mr Bennett in London, who is a gentleman ot distinguished ability, and a w riter of great experience, the following introductory letters have been received, and we venture to say that they contain a clearer view of European bllairs than can be met with in any communication" published on this side the Atlantic. Mr. Bennett's other arrangements will be brought into working operation at a very early pe riod ; but in the mean time, we commend to our readers the letters of "Alpha" The series which we shall receive from ihe same source is destined to attract the fixed attention of, aud excite the most intense interest throughout this entire continent To the writer the best information is accessible, and it will be furnished to our readers with a freedom and an ability which have ever characterized the author's contributions to the public:?

As there is no lack of news, so neither is there any want of topics for discussion, and as the American public is uniformly alive to all that is interesting and important in questions of political principle, I propose in the first instatice to make some general observations on our present attitude as a nation. And first 1 would say a few words with regard to the Queen, hei court, and her constitutional advisers. The excitement of the last few weeks has been a whelly new feature in the life of her majesty. Hitherto accustomed to the monotony of an English court life, (and nothing can be imagined more monotonous thaa that,) her Majesty has seen, for the first time, foreign scenery, manners and society. Her education was essentially English. She was always taught to feel that, above and before all things, she must be British in her tastes and feelings. As heiress apparent to the throne, during the whole of the reign of her predecessor and uncle, William IV, she could not, during that period, visit j foreign shores; and if she had not lately expressed her firm resolution to proceed to France and Belgium, she would have still remained p royal prisoner in her own dominions. The Queen had a very great desire to see Louis Philippe. With his character she was well acquainted. With his extraordinary lite, full of ?o many thrilling events, she was not ignorant; and his noble and handsome children had, one after the other, spoken insuch terms of devotedneBs of their father and king, that Queen Victoria could not but be desirouBof seeing a man and a monarch whose checkered career eupplied so many facts, as well as so many subjects, for reflection. Her Majesty's ministers are not entitled to any praise with regard to that visit. They protested against, and even opposed it. Considered it "a dangerous precedent," uHd even hinted at their in?..rrin<? the risk ot an ... ? .. untoward event arise. But all this was useless- The Queen pronounced the words, "I am resolved," and the Premier and Lord Aberdeen bowed acquiescence. Of the visit itself, I do not think it necessary to say more than that it has taken by surprise all the courts of Europe; that it has even alarmed some of (he old diplomatists of the west, as well as of the north; and that, now the pageant is over, John Bull is grumbling about the expense, and asks, "Why was not this great outlay of gold and silver made at home1?" The Queen was much delighted with King Louis Philippe, enchanted with the dfjeuneri in the forests of Normandy, and highly gratified with the dignified simplici'y and unaffected homeliness of the family of the French monarch. In Bel gium, the festival of Bruges most charmed her; and indeed she states that it was one of those "surprises" she can never forget. Brussels disappointed her, Ghent gratified her, while Antwerp consummated her pleasures, and gave a noble conclusion to her continental rambles, for after all, they were but rambles. The inhabitants of Bruges, Ghent, and Antwerp, felt more respecting the regality of the visit than did the Queen herself. The Court is very much divided respecting the whole of these measures, and if the whigs had been in office instead of the conservatives, the latter would have made many hearty protesU ; but Sir Robert must be supported, and the tories will there* fore most probably, on the meeting of parliament, preserve the moRt rigid silence. But have these excursions been really beneficial to British interests, and to the attitude which this country should take with regard to European affairs 1 I confess I think not. They must have had the effect of pledging the Queen and her government, more or less, to the alliances of France and of Belgium, and to the adop. noil of their policy ; and this will be by no means a popular course ot proceeding in this country. The Qu??en whs so much excited during the whole of the period devoted to her foreign wandering*, that ilie calm, dull life of Windsor and its castle,appears most insipid to our youthful monarch, and it is said that to divert her mind, as well as to render more supportable to the Queen her tory advisers, a series of visits to some of the first noble houses of the country are in contemplation, and that even Sir Robert Peel is to be honored by a royal residence of a few hours. There are four long mo/iths to be ffof fhrnurh hefnrp nnv ihine nnnrnnchinir to fiaietv will returu ; and these must be so passed that the Queen may be induced to continue her patronage (however cold and distant) to the present conservetive cabinet. The political tastes and principles of her majesty are so essentially whiggish, and public opinion is eo decidedly in lavor of the onward and progressive movement, that Sir Robert Peel has perhaps a more difficult task to porform than has any prime minister of Great Britain during the last hundred years. The great object of the tories, therefore, is to distract her mind from politics and political discussions and affairs, to occupy it with gaiety, amusement, and holiday making, and to induce her " not to trouble herself about such matters as Irish Repeal?Welsh Rebeccdism?Scotch Free Church-ism?or any of the foreign or domestic topics now under discussion." On the subject oi Ireland her majesty, however, is no longer uilent.? O'Connell is regarded by her as a turbulent, selfish, arbitrary, and really cowardly tribune. She begins u, ihot he lg DOt umcere?that he has not the intention ol carry..? out the propositions and plaiishe has .0 frequently asse.. ,, wou,d do an(J tha, he is agitating exclusively forfi,. na, jnter?t> vunity, and aggrandizement. Hei .-.,.nded vi>jt t0 Ireland she knows and feels Ins been frusi.... liis " Munster meetings," and hi9 late language with regard to herself has filled her with diaguit.? The Queen is in the habit of asking, " What is 1 there new about Ireland 1" and having done so on * Tue?daykla8t, an article Irom t^e Journal (let Dtbati was placed iu her mujesty'i hands. the read it through with haate.and then placing it on the table, exclaimed, " That is excellent!" The paragraph which most gratified her waa the following " Tharn are, we are aware, evil* to be remedied, but the Irish oppoae all reasonable reform by unreaaonable objection*. O'Connell ha* ventured his (take upon a dangerous card He ha* placed Ireland between repeal and revolution ! Repeal he cannot have , and aa to a revolution, if it were attempted, which Ood forbid, the attumpt would infallibly terminate in an unfortunate an I impotent revolt" Thus much for the Queeu! She is an anti-repealer and an anti-O'Connell-ite ; and although all her education, tastes, an4 friendships are whig, she is aw firmly resolved to sup|>ort all measures for putting down repeal agitation, as she is not to visit Ireland until the faction which now kef pa it in useless and criminal suspense and agitation, (hall be wholly overcome. Sir Robert Peel and his coadjutors have been suddenly roused from their briet though wakeful slum ber? by the news of a revolution in Greece, and by a reported Spanish demand for a French intervention in the affaire ot Spaii, to prevent the establishment of a multitude of small and petty republics in the Peninsula. That Greece should have made a revolution against the moat imbecile, extravagant, and stupid governments that ever reigned over either slaves or freemen, in any age ot the world, cannot excite any surprise. King Otho and his Bavarian councillors, have been for years the laughing stock of Europe and the world, and their late bad faith in not making good th? engagements into which they entered for the payment ol the interest on the loan secured by the three great powers, has created a general feeling ot contempt and disgust. But they were not prepared for the convocation ot a National Assembly, nor for the expulsion oi all foreigners from all posts and offices which they had previously held. King Otho is wholly incapable of understanding his position. Conduriotis and Mavromichali, the President and Vice President ot the Council of State, are by far too cunning for this impotent Prince ; and fear induced him to sign a decree, the consequences of which will be felt in ages vet to romp Tb* fii?? nnuti/in ,.i, ?? v""*i;=u man puts on the reception of news suicidal to that relating to Greece, is invariably this, " Shall we Kai? by it 1" " Shall we have the interest on the loan paid V' " Will Greek stock advance 1" Now, I lake it that it is very probable the National Assembly will, in the first instance, pledge itself to make good all public or national engagements; but that it will continue to do so, as the history ot the loan in question shall become known, I doubt exceedingly A careful, prudent, national government will exa- ] mine into the account of bona fide receipts with regard to the loan, and will not be willing to pay 100 per cent for receipt? amountiug to but 50. ] The premier has also been disturbed in his par- ] tridge shooting by alarming intelligence from Spain. The Peninsula was never in a more unsettled and , agitated state than it is at the prestnt moment. ] The "pronouncements" tor the Lopez administration are now changed into curses and reproaches. The Moderados have become savages. The Exaltados demand blood. The agents of the Queen Christina are actively occupied in seeking to raise a party for that intriguing and artful woman. The Central Junta is opposing all other government combinations. A letter now before me from Madrid says:? " Prepare your mind, and those of vonr friend*, for a desperate struggle here?and that very short!y ; but tell them at the same time that the establishment oi the Central Junta is the mode of settlement which appears the most probable. In the meantime all is contusion, and no man in bis semes would predict what will next occur. < There i* a powerful party in favor of French intervention; j but what ii France to establish ??not to replaco Espartoro?for that would be contrary t? French policy ; not to 1 marry the Queen Isabella to a son ol Louis Pnilippe, ior e to that England would object most decidedly ; not to replace Christina as regent; and not to patronize the Car- 8 lists. A French army might prevent civil war, a* long c as a powerful occupation of Spain ahould last, but this would come to an end?and then the troubles and war 8 would recommence." t No wonder that such a state of affairs as this has t fixed the attention of Sir Robert Peel and Lord c Aberdeen ; and no wonder that the French funds f should be seized with a panic at the spread of mere- I ly a report of a solicited French intervention. 1 The arch-agitator has availed himself of the pre- < sent occupied state of the minds of the Queen's ad- t visers relative to foreign questions, to hold | to Repeal. In the county of Waterford, last ( Sunday, at Lismore, one of those meetings were held ( at which the question was put, not by many, but by j thousands and tens of thousands?"When is the Par- t liament to meet on College Green!" The great de- j ceiver will not this time be let of!. He must either proclaim his own treachery and deceit, and admit that he never was in earnest, or he must march at 1 the head of that movement which he can no longer c control. "He feared," last Sunday, "that he muai < abandon his avocation as agitator, for the people j, and Clergy were going beyond him. Like the heavy s schoolmaster on the ice, his pupils were overtakin? him. Heretofore his duty had been to excite?i: was now to moderate. It was now his daty to regulate the vigor, and temper the energy of the pet- g pie?to compress as it were, the exubrance of botl, b : *L... j:J l ? ?L.:. I~? -x Biuiugmg iiiuugu mry uiu irum iixrir iuvc ui uuuh 01 try." si In plain terms, O'Connell is at his wit's ends !- 1? How to get out of his difficulties he knowB not. H would give half his fortune to excite some mass? of the people to revolt, without it being known thit . he had done so, and then to withdraw from ths 11 whole Repeal movement, on the ground that ill*- 1 gality, violence, and bloodshed, had defeated anl ai ruined his plans. The "stuff" he talks of preparing tc his writs for an Irish Parliament, which will on!/ require a little Queen's wax to render them loyai, does not deceive any man of common sense. Be- n< fere an IrishParliament will meet on College Green, j O'Connell's boasted legions must prepare to fight; t0 and it is clear that O'Connell himself will not be at S( their head. The Welsh disturbances assume a very serious je character. The landlords feel this, and appeal to the Government for protection. The answer of that Government is?"Reduce your rents!" "Then you must reduce the general and local taxation," h reply the landlords?to which Sir Robert says?"I ? cannot reduce a larthing." "Nor can we diminish 8 our revenues,"declare the Wynnes and the Joneses, ^ the Griffiths and the Cowdora?whilst the Rebec- r caites threaten to burn down all the corn and the , castles in the country. The Welsh are a decided, energetic, obstinate people. They have raised a standard of revolt which they will never lover until they shall be destroyed and decimated, or mtil their demands shall be granted. There is mow in thiB ' Welsh rebellion than meets the eye ; and you shall i learn all about it in my next. The Tintt tells much?and its correspondents are entitled to the thanks of the government, and of the pwlic ; but ' there is still mere remains untold?as rou will 1 learn hereafter iltha. London, Oct. I 1843 i l/trd ttrougham't Attack on the Whig*, md on the Britith Prn?. That giant of a man, Lord Brougham, ?h?, not- { withstanding his versatility and quain tnessof character and manner, is a giant still, has jist sen1 forth a pamphlet of K7 octavo pages ent tled " Letters on Law Reform, to the Right Hon. Sir J. R (irahum, Bart , M. P., Secretary of State for the Home Department, from Lord Broughon " The first letter on " the criminal code" is dated from hif Lordship's seat at Brougham, !?th September. The second letter is headed "Law Reforms of 1843 ? Spirit of Party"--and is dated from the s*me place, three days after the first epistle. There are three | objects which the noble writer keeps steadily in vic?t in invar numr iiiii (HBcurni vr i nuuiirniiviio? . first, to praise the Liw'Commmwmner of 18UW?ae- I cond, to plead lor lurther changes?and third, to at- | tack his former friends, and defend most stoutly and J energetically himself. 1 Whoever has merely scanned the reports of the HW, "yunminsion, composed, as it was, of such men as Mr. iyjr. Starkie, [ Mr. B Ker, Mr. Amm, and Mr. Austin, mum *0- 1 mit that no enconuumb would be exceaaive, when i applied lo their vxtraorJiuary and amazing labors, und that the report, upon the allowing counsel t( addrrps thejury for prisoners in cases of felony; th? report upon capital puuishment; the report upon lh< statute law in general, and the means of digesting it into our codes, as well as the means of forming the common law likewise into a code; and, finally, lie complete digest of the criminal laws of England (with the exception o( the subject of procedure,') are monvmeatsof skill, research, learning and philosophy, of which, not only the bur of England, bul the whole country, may be justly proud. Of thr digest tiis lordship justly observes, that its value, " containing, us it does, the accurate detimtton ol all crimes, and the correct statement ot the punishment due to each, is not easily to be estimated." Lord Brougham pleads, with his accustomed abi111V in hphnli of f llA nrinni?Ua a( nmlifiiiutmn an?l defends the French codes from the popular, but untenable, objections made to them. Tne system which the noble writer recommende with regard to England, is, 1st. To adopt some con< venient arrangement or classification of the law re latingto crimes. 2d. To ascertain what provisions of the statute law continue in force, and those which are obsolete, and should be abrogated. 3d. The

incorporation of statutes and common law provisions 4th. No term ought to be used which has not been accurately defined; and the laws should proceed from simple to coupled, and not, as is now the case, vice wr*a. 5th. The same word should never be used in different senses; nor different a i .i; tr.. ? in uiuticui juatco ?u CAflCB3 HIC oaillC lllUJg. 6th. The language to be used should receive a careful consideration?the statute phraseologo should be retained ; and, 7th, a code of criminal law, and of criminal procedure, in both its branches, should be confuted, and by a single enactment declared to be law. To all that his lordship says and urges in the first forty pages of his pamphlet on the criminal code, and the digest to be prepared and adopted by parliament, nothing can seriously be urged ; and if this, his last production, had there terminated, he would, probably, have added (if possible) to the vast reputation for ability which he already enjoys. But when his lordship descends into the arena of the present times, and, instead of discussing general principles and abstract measures, enters the lists with his political quondam friends, but now violent opponents, he becomes not the Harry Brougham of former times, who labored for his three guineas' fee, as though in that fee depended his prospects and his fortune ; but he becomes, or rather displays himself as the Lord Brougham of 18-12 and 1843, the dissatisfied, cavelling, carping, Ex-Lord Chancellor, casting i<spersions on the men he formerly delighted to eulogize, and representing himself as the martyr of his own political purity, virtue, and truthfulness. Now, although it may suit the "Standard" and the "Times" to applaud his lordship for this line of proceeding, all reflecting and stable minds regret that so lofty a spirit Bhould descend to such puerilities. I have sent you the pamphlet itself that you may make such extracts as you think fit from page 53 to the close. Of course, his Lordship feels severely the constant castigation he is receiving at the hands of the daily press. Of course, " nine years" of abuse tias tried his temper and ruffled his spirit; and he, who once proclaimed as his standing maxim and itereotyjed toast, " the liberty of the press?without it we die," now vents his most parliamentary inathemas against that very press which in other ime6 was the air he breathed, the food he ate, and he raiment with which he clothed himself. After ill, however, this pamphlet of his Lordship is ereiting a very considerable sensation; and it has :ome out at a moment when the public generally, is well as ministers and statesmen, can find a little ime to review the past, reflect on the present, and ake r fflanre nt thp nrnhnhlp (ntiirr Aa th? Hero 1/1 >f New York is habitually accustomed to be the irst in the field in all matters, whether grave or gay, ively or severe, I have ventured to occnpy a coumn of your journal with his very interesting and :urious subject; and hope to see long extracts from ihe pamphlet itself in your very able and interesting paper.

The provisional President has rendered several decrees, among which we notice one lor regulating the equipment and armament of the vessels belonging to the navy, of alt classes ; another establishes that the 27ih of September, the anniversary of the day when the colonial government ol Spain ceased, by the entry of the Independent Army, shall I be celebrated throughout the Republic as a national fesiival?and a third decree forbids coachmen and other servants of private individuals,from wearing the uniform of the army, from which it would 1 set-m, that this had been practiced, at least in the capital, for some time paai. The 11th ot Sem,)tember, the anniversary of the i defeat of the Spanish expedition under Barradas, was celebrated by the population of Mexico. A new jouraat has De?n started in Mexico, under i the title of the Estandarte, which is vigorously uti tacked by the government official, the Diario d? l i Gobierno. The Siglo Diez y Nueve has proposed that the ua, pital be divided into districts or municipalities simi| lar to Paris or New Orleans. r The papers are generally silent upon the result of I the elections, from which it may be inferred that they are unfavorable to the actual President. We think, however, it is more probable they have withheld those received,in orderto announce the general . result, which it is net likely has yet transpired in the capital. , The yellow fever was raging at Tampico. It is making great ravages in the garrison. One of the crew of the Pequot fell a victim to the disease. Capt. J. G. Wilson, one of the Texians who was captured at Mier, succeeded in escaping from Tacubaya on the 3d July, and has arrived at New Orleans. Since the above we have received from Captain Ellery, of the Merchant, from Tobasco, arrived at this port, the following additional intelligence. No arrangement had been made between Mexico and Yucatan, and preparations were making at Campeachy to attack Tobasco. It was reported that Commodore Moore was to take command of a tquadron now building in New York for Yucatan?to consist of two steamers and two frigates. There was much sickness among the troops at Tobasco; also among the shipping. Almost every vessel lying there had lost the whole or portions of their crews Logwood was selling at eight r.als per quintal, and none to be had at that, with the exception of the small parcels coming down the river in canoes. Several vessels for Europe had stopped at Tobasco, and finding that they conld not procure a cargo of wood, had sailed without freight. The war Bteamer Montezuma, from Vera Cruz, was off the bar at Tobasco waiting for water to get in. *She had on board $45,000 for the troops, dec , and sealed despatchesfor the commanding officer. It was said that they were raising an army at Campechy to invade Tobasco. Mexican Oranges.?The schooner Merchant, arrived yesterday from Tobasco, has for sale on board a few thousand oranges. Mexican oranges are seldom brought to this market. Accident at the Fair.?Wednesday afternoon a son of Mr. James Weir, 233 Mulberry street, was playing with a horsepower threshing machine exhibiting at the Fair, when accidently the last three fingers on his left hand caught in the cog wheels, the bones ot which were broken into small pieces Dr. Cox, cf No. 11 Carlton street, being present, accompanied the boy to his home, where, upon examination, he found it necessary to amputate the fingers at the second joint.
