NEW YORK HERALD. %rw lork. Tuesday. November '41. IMS* ftp- We thall receive by the Caledonia, and havP for aale at this ottico all tin foreign paper*, together with the London illustrated paper*. all of the latest Jates. Steamship Caledonia must luive reached Ronton yesterday. She was then sixteen days out, ami we inay therefore confidently look for her news early tins morning. Klrit Monater Meeting ?f the New KcpubMeans?Its singular Character and Pretensions. The first Monster or Mass Meeting of the New Republicans?or Americans jur txrcUcwe?-or Young lleinocracy?by all of which names they are called?took place last night, in the upper regions of Hudson street, in the Ninth Ward. It was one of the strongest assemblages of men that ever were seen collected together in New York. Every variety ol human beings?every color of politicians?all sorts of big boys and small?and immense shoals of resjK'ctable citizens, ap|>eHred to have come together, by some i>owerful ? some mysterious?some unique impulse. Yet with all this diversity of being, character, and pursuit, there seems to exist a perfect unanimity?a complete liar mony in their general purposes and objeet. They opi>oae the tolly and corruptions of both parties, by organizing a new one on the broadest basis of civil and religions liberty. They profess the utmost freedom of speech?discussion?revolution and action. It is not alone opposition to any particular clique of foreigners, or religionists that they make ?but to c/tyuis of all kinds, whether it be in politics, in religion, or in society. This extraordinary movement, which developed itself in this metropolis at the last election, is the natural result of the corruptions of the age. It is the breaking up of the great deep of wickedness. It is the eflervesence of a spirit that lias been held in chains for many years. It is the true tiers parti i ?the real third party, growing out of the gross corruptions of the times, and drawing into a neworganization all the best elements of the two old and rotten factions. Another remarkable feature in this new party, is i their prudence, good sense, and practical views, combined with eloquence, poetry, wit, and entl '.siasm. ! They do not seem to go too fast ahead?to launch into interminable speculations?or engage in useless contests. In this city they are bending all their energies to one great practical purpose?to the defeat of the tiro old factions in the next spring ejections?and the introduction of thorough reforms into the city government. On this point alone, large masses of the people will go with them?and thus the growth, rapidity, and enthusiasm seem to give them an assurance of an easy victory. In every point of view this new party is attracting great attention, here and elsewhere. Sentence of Mike Walsh? Attempt to Shoot himself? Attempt to Drown himself. Mike Walsh, who was recently tried, convicted, i and sentenced to two months imprisonment in the | penitentiary for a libel on Jacob Southard, cooi>er, | of Washington market, was yesterday taken to ; the penitentiary at Blackwell's Island, to serve out ; said sentence. During his slay in the city prison, | since the day of sentence, application has been J made lo Judge BronRon, of the Supreme Court, for a stay of judgment in order to carry the case to a | higher court, which was refused, and also to the I Governor of the State for a respite of the sentence, J until the proceedings could be reviewed, which was also refused. At about one 1 o'clock yesterday, Mike was informed that a carriage was ready to convey him to Blackwell'9 Island, and that Deputy Keepers Purdv 1 and Carlisle would accompany him. He said he 1 was ready, and left his cell in their company. His j wife n?et him in the office 0/ the keeper, and he | called her towards him to take a parting interview, j when he put his hand in one of his pockets, and I drew a five barrel pistol, which he presented to- [ wards his breast in a position to fire it, when J Kee|>er Fallon, who was standing behind him, im- j mediately grasped his hand*, and his wife took the j pistol from him. He then passed oui without say- I ing a word, and took his seal in the carriage with j 1'urdv and Carlisle in perfect silence. The car- j riage drove off, and he became apparently resigned to the judgment of the Court. A large concourse of persons had assembled at the prison entrance about the carriage, to see Mike move off, but no j public demonstrations were exhibited of any feel- j ing among them, except that ot sympathy for his situation. On arriving at the ferry at the foot of Sixty-first street, Mike took his seat in the ferry boat with a dogged silence. The boat was shoved ofl, containing keeper Fallon and several of his deputies, with ex-officer Sweet and others. The oarsmen had pulled her but a short distance from the wharf when Mike suddenly rose, gave a spring and jumped into the river, evidendtly with an intention to drown himself. The boat was instantly rowed towards him, and he was rescued by keeper Fallon and ex-officer Sweet. He was then safely landed on Blackwell's Island and placed in charge of keeper Orser, who supplied him with a comfortable change of dress, and rendered him every comfort in his power. Mike< ap|K-ars to be perfectly des|>erate in his present situation, and it is probable that he may commit some net to rid himself of what he supposes to be the disgrace attached to his sentence, unless closely watched by the keepers who have him in charge. He says he will never leave the Island alive. CoMMOt CofNctT..?At the meeting last evening Alderman Tillou said he should be prepared, in a few days, to present a f ull report on Police Reform, which we understand is most complete, and con tains much valuable information, and many excellent suggestions. William <?age, Su|>erintendeiit , ?>i irireeis, lenaerea ins resignation, on me ground that the Common Council would not make the pro- \ (K-r appropriations to allow him to perf orm the du- ; lies of his office. It was not accepted. A number of valuable public documents, most elegantly bound, were leceived as a present to the Corpora- I lion, from the city of Paris, as a commencement of I "National Literary Exchanges." They were ordered to be deposited in a mom in the City Hall as a neucleusfor a City Library. The question granting (?eorge W. }5ruen the perpetual free use of the waste water of the fountain at Union Square, to be used in a Jock dry dor k to be constructed by him, was also taken up, and after considerable debate, laid on the table. OrnciAi. Reti'rns.?What is the reason that the official returns of the late city election are so long delayed? We want to know exactly the vote of the new Republicans?also the vote of the Tyler party In Washington, they are equally anxious and unless th?*y know soon, they will burst.

Processor NUiicni* <i\ Kt,oct"no*.?This gentlemen (fives a lecture to-morrow evening on Elocution, at the Society Library Lecture Boom, corner Broadway and Leonard street. He conies highly recommended from distinguished professors in ?reat Britain, and we doubt not his lectures will p#ove both entertaining and instructive. He give* numerous illustrative readings, cures stammering, and shows the most approved style ot leading The Great Monster Horllnf of American Republicans In the Ninth Ward last erenlng. Chit" of the greatest political meetings ever held I in this city took place at the corner ot Hudson and Christopher streets last evening. It was really a j monster meeting. Immense numbers could not ob- I tain admission to the spacious hall, which was crowded to suffocation long before the hour of commencing?7 o'clock?; and much of the most interesting proceedings took place, as will be seen, out of doors. The greatest ardor?the greatest enthusiasm?the greatest patriotism animated this whole vast assemblage. We give a full and faithful re|M>rt, such as no other pa|>er 111 the city, or all of them put together, could sive. The movement is worthy of this space. It is the great feature of { the times. The meeting was called to order at 7 o'clock prei eisely, and Israfi. Kktchi m, Estj., one of the i most respectable citizens m the Ward, was called ; to the chair by acclamation. The following officers were then appointed :? J'iff; Presidents. Horatio Mott, Stkfhkn Potts*, I)at id Scvvr.tn, Horace Lookfuhhow, I Kuril S. Ki.no, Martin Bia.nch, ( trl'9 W. prick, peter k. t'00n, pl*tl K V. Voohhij, John B. Marring, j Jacoh G. Dyckmak, George G. Smith, Lewis Kick, Kranch V. .Many, Frederick Sedgwick. Secretaries. Rorert Henry Golder, Soi.oman Allaire, tlf .. I m v.. r. Benjamin Shuktleff Whitney, Esq., then rose in obedience to the loud call of the meeting. Mr. VV. is a young man of energy und talent, and was I I amongst the first of the genuine "young de' mocracy" who set the ball in motion in the Ninth Ward, lie was received with great applause, and | said:? Fellow-citizens 1 am always happy to respond to the call of the. Ninth?the "banner ward" of the great ' American Republican party.'' When 1 see sucli an assemblage after an excited election convened to enforce those rights w hich belong rightly to them, I feel happy in standing forward as their advocate. There is one leaturu connected with this party peculiarly grand?it is the fact, that it is com]>osed of honest men?men who detest intrigue and corruption and fraud: men that have never been polluted by jorty; men unsullied as the sun that shines u|>on our earth. [Great applause.] With such men, who have l>ecome disgusted with party, we must and will triumph. [Renewed cheers.] They are not only good men, but their principles are sacred. ' One of the chief of them is that no foreigner shall hold office in this country. The native son of the soil is the only eligible candidate for any ottice. [Cheers.] We believe that ' there are men in our own happy country fullv competent to till all the otlices in the gilt of the American jxtople. 1 [Cheers.] If so, why employ aliens and foreigners .' I [Cheers.] This part) designs to overthrow corruptiun; | [that's right;] it means to undermine the cliques lwtli of I Tammany llall and Broadway House?["Good, good"' and cheers;] on the altar of our country we have sworn alI legiance to her and her liberties. If our object then is to i support honest and good men, it surely is holy and good. | [Cheers.] At the coming election, if we steer clear ol both contending factions,and|hring into theticld men of'character and honesty, the people will elect them. [We will, we will.] Our city tax is oppressive--our city government is all out ot order?and all this we want reformed. Our watchmen, lamplighters, and even our aldermen, are chiefly natives of old England and Ireland. [Increased cheers.] 1 believe, however, the time is not far distant, i when ours will become the popular party. If it, in all its ] primary organization, continues firm, united and indepen dent, it will triumph in the coming election |und honest mon vi lli rnntrnl vnur ritv h ?roat nuttlaium ^ lint aa there art- others here who will better address you, 1 will not detain you longer. I say, many continue to watch the actions of those foreign bloodhounds who would suck your life's blood. There are men commissioned to do the dirty work of Tammany Hall and Broadway House, who will secret themselves in your organizations, and sell you for a mess of pottage. [Hisses.] I say then, watch 'them, and go on in the same spirit in which you have begun, and you must triumph. Before 1 set down I would reler for a few moments to a " Young Men's Club" which has been organized in this ward. A lull will be presented at the close of the meeting, and all who desire to join it, will then have tn opportunity of doing so. [Thunders of aj>plause, amid winch Mr. W. resumed his seat.[ The report of the committee 011 resolutions was then read. It was forcibly and eloquently written, and embodied in strong language the sentiments and principles of the parly. Jacob L. Fenn, Esq., of the 13th ward, then addressed the meeting. He is a fine effective popular speaker. He said? Kf.llow Citizens? In addressing you. let me say that I do not war against any particular sect of foreigners. It is enough if he ban noiW-n born in the sacra) soil of our country. It is necessary that they only who have l>eeu born and nurtured here should be entrusted with the defence of our rights and privileges?[Loud cheers.] I was formerly connected with what is called the great whig party. It has been said that the dumocratic party onlv was in favor of foreigners. But I, as one acquainted with the matter, say that he who says so is a liar, and the truth is not in him?[Ceeers.] Look at the journal of the galvanized squash?[Laughter and groans]?and you find it calling on the (icrmans to stand fast by the great whig party. Gentlemen, we wish to cast off the trammels of both parties. [Cheers.] We are ready, I repeat, gentlemen, to war against every other sect, as well as Catholicity, who would dare to lay their polluted hands on the sacred ark of our eoiintn's liberty. [Gnat applause.] Look at the conduct of a certain Bishop in thi? city, who. with his five thousand satellites, dared to interfere'with our public schools. [" Three groans for Bishop Hughes."] Numbers of these aliens, who jierhap* left their countrv for their country's good, have come to our shores, interfered with our elections, and afterwards claimed and received the reward of their iniquity. We will not say aid that man. or regard him as an honest man. who receives money with one hand and attempts with the other to attack our country. 1 cannot find language sufficient to express mv indignation against such a man. [Three groans for Dan O'ConnelL] Fellow citizens, we have emitted in a glorious cause?a cause of which any man might well lie proud?and our op|>onents are welcome to all the capital they may make out of their abuse of it.?[Cheers.] It is the right cause, and it is taken up by the right sort of men?those who have been called contemptuously|"the lower classes," but who are in truth the pillars and ground work of the State.?[Cheers.] These men have Felt their rights invaded, and the rights of their children threatened, and they have come to the ruscue.?[Cheers.] With strong arms and stout hearts they have buckled on their armor, and will not lay it aside till victory has I crowned their eirorts.?[Thunders of applause.J Next spring that victory will in part lie ours.?["It will!"]? and nothing k-ss than 6000 of a majority?Bob Morris' j majority will satisfy us. [Tremendous cneering.] With | less than that 1 would hardly call it a victory at all. [Cheering and ajcry."it will be 10,000;" renewed i cheering.] We will at least have l'J out of the 17 wards. I I can at least answ er for the 13th. [Cireat cheering.] The t ights of American citizens have been basely bartered,and I corrupt partizans have rode rough-shad over our liberties. Why even the grounds of the White House at Washington are cultivated, by w hom .' why, by Irishmen and Germans. [Hisses and cries of "shame.''] And we all know that John Tyler has sent forth his son, Prince Bobby, to shake every greasy, dirty Irishman by the hand in order to secure his vote. [ Laughter and cheering.] I denounce any man. no matter who he is, who would step from the proud position of the Presidency in order to commit himself to the respectable keeping of the repealers of the IT. S. [Groans and hisses.] Kich'd M. Johnson, too, that warworn veteran lias submitted tliouirhtle&iilv in the vile set. Now I say. is not this a time for every American who lias a drop of blood of the right sort, to come forward for the defence of lils country. (Fond cheers,) and above all, let us, fellow citizens, attfx the damning brand of dishonor on that most detestable?let mc say most damnable of politicians?William II. Seward. (Terrible groans.) Let us brand him so that he may be known to whatever part of God-* earth he may betake himself. (Cheers.) In conclusion, let me say that our principles are the principles ol' our fathers, and we have no cause to despond for a moment. Let us go on as we have commenced, and this i second revolution?almost as great as the first?(cheers) ?will soon be perfected. (Great cheering.) [.Mr. K. here I sat down amid thunders of applause.) Gkokue Washington Jones, Esquire, was then loudlv railed lor, and on the chairman asking, " In .Mr. Jone? in the room V that gentleman, with considerable difficulty, forced his way to the platform, j aud on his appearance was greeted with the most j enthusiastic applause. lie spoke as follows:? Mr. Gkokue WjtfifNuTO* Jonki.?Alter the spiritstirring addresses wltich have been delivered this I evening, it would tie in very bad taste, indeed, were ! I to trespass long upon your attention?(" no, no," and cheer*.) At best I cannot ho|>e to add fresh incentives to your zeal, or furnish new inducement* to exertion. My chief hope, indeed, is that I may myself be stimulated to increased effort iu this great cause, by catching a portion of that enthusiasm which so evidently animates every individual in this vast assemblage?(cheers.) And what a different aspect does this meeting present. Inim that which characterises the assemblages of the corrupt tactions which ?e have come here to-night to expose to the just indignation of every honest citizens ! Tlnsi.no noisy, tumultuous gathering of men, inflamed with all the evil passion* which party-spirit and parly hate engender. No. Von are all here in the character of devout worshipjiers at the sacred shrine of freedom and your country ; anil on every countenance I can trace the calm, but firm resolve?thejdevoted patriotism?the deep-felt reverence lm tli>' muse? w hich nroclann ill hiniriiaire not to be mistaken, that ever* man amongst us is in earnest, and animated bv the right ?piri4? (enthu?n?tic applause) I have k.i ill. lei low riti/.ens, that this meeting presents a very different appearance from that of whig or locofoco gatherings. And I know not how it could lie otherwise, when our whole sy stem of Rotation?our whole mode of (-urn ing on this great eumpaign against corruption and fraud, is so totally, so entirely different Irom the system find mode adopted by those against whom we are contending (cheers.) Let me just, for a few mo. ments, review the history of party trtlgfflefi in this country durinK the last twenty y cam?(hear, hear, and cheers.) It is nn|K?*ili|e lor any genuine Iriend of morality and the Kood under ol society, to look Imck, without sfiame and onfusinn of fare, to the time w hun a (sditical aspirant hail only hi order to ensure siircess. to itinerate through the country, with a gin slinu in one hand and a hickory pole in Ihc- other (laughter and cheers.) Surli, however, you all verv well know w as the instrumentality by w hich General Jackson was elevated to the highest honor whii'li i the llepuhlie ran bestow. These were glorious times for \ drunken demogogue* and unprinripled party hacks. ! They had nothing to do hut plant a hickory is.le in front j of some tavern -get upon the top of a rum keg?talk t.? I (he people about the battle of Sew Orleans -rail f..t thre. cheer* lor " Old Hickory" pom a gallon of distilled l damnation, dow n the throats of tie* thirsty mob, and the business was done?- daughter an.I cheers.) Such was the disgusting, demoralising mode ol electioneeriug adopt d i I by the friends and supporter* of Ueneral Jackson.? ' And how did the opposite part) improve u|K>n thin system ' Why, they carried it to a still more disgusting degree of irrationality, (ihirri.) (,'oon skins and log cabins were the insignia of their patriotic principles, and hard cider well drugged w ith bad brand) . was the animating spirit of their political assemblages. The history of the whig campaign of 1K40 w as the history of a national saturnalia of drunkenness. So it began, continued, and ended. Drunken braggadocio, drunken abuse, drunken violence, drunken disorder, drunken folly, uere its characteristics, (tileat upplause, and cries of ' that's true.") Yes, fellowcitizens, it is too true. And m?re in sorrow than in anger, I recall these melancholy times of national lolly and error. But, thank God, the people have been awakened from these bacchanalian oigies. (Cheers.) The day has gone by, 1 pray, and I trust forever, when any politician I rau dare to address himself to the vileNt passions of human nature, and seek the alliance of depruved appetite and I grovelling vice in the proM-cution of his schemes. (Loud cheers.) And with what indignant and withering rebuke ; should not the man be visited, w ho by such couduct in- i suited and disgraced our character as freemen, and who : are ready again lo cover us with kindred infamy I (Loud ! applause.) Indeed, if any excitement were wanting ti> awaken the indignation ol every true republican?every lover of decency and order?every admirer of virtue? against the partizans who have polluted the country, we could lind it in their electioneering conduct. What an opinion they must entertain of the |>eople ! What open, public, persevering insults have they heaped on the character of the people, by this system of recommending themselves and their nominees ! They must estimate u freeman's voice and vote at a prodigious price, surely, when they otter for it, a gin-sling, or u pint of hard-cider. (Laughter and hisses.) But, fellow-citizens, this sad farce can never be repeated. (Cheers.) The American Republican party comes before the people, in the modest garb of a plain republican, and speaking the words of truth and soberness. It appeals to the reason and the virtue of the citizen. It addresses itself to the understandings of the people?regarding the citizens ol this country | as rational beings?as men " \\ ho know their rights, and knowing dare maintain them." It seeks their suffrage* by the means only which reason and morality suggest and sanction. (Great applause.) To no bacchanalian leasts do we invite you. Not with the poisoned wine-cuptdo we court your aid. We [come to you with that great charter of liberty?the Declaration of Independence?in our hands,and wc ask you as men ami as citizens?as intelligent and accountable beings?to come forward and take part in that great conflict which has now commenced, between corruption and fraud, and vice of every description 011 the one hand, and patriotism, morality, and virtue, on the other. (Tremendous applause, amid which Mr. Jones retired.) Then there were loud calls for "Oakley"?"De Ln Hee"?"Hopper"?"De L;i Ree"?"Hopper." The chairman called out in a stentorian voice? "Order?gentlemen, order?you must keep order? and when the chair tells you to keep order, you must keep order." This stilled the audience. The next thing in order was the reading of the articles of the Constitution of the New Association of the Ninth Ward, with the preamble and bylaws. These went dead against the present School Law?in favor of 21 years before naturalization? and none but American Republicans for office.? These were adopted unanimously. All w ho wished to join were invited to walk up and sign their names. Again there were loud calls for "De La llee,"? "Hopper"?"De La Hee"?"Hopper"?and the chairman again ordered them to keep order. "We are not going to have any disorder, and we will not have it, while 1 am in the chair." This again produced quiet. A motion was then made to appoint a chairman pro tern., and also a secretary for the New Association, whose constitution had just been reful, in order that they might call a meeting and organize.? This was done. William Cox was appointed chairman, and M. Whitney, secretary pro tcm. Loud culls again for " De La Ree." The chairman said, " We are not ready yet?we must go 011 in order ; Mr. Oakley is next in order." Not present. Calls for Hopper. Mr. Hopper from . the midst of the audience said, " Gentlemen, 1 beg to De excused ; i came nere to listen, una not to speak." (Loud cries of "Go ahead, go ahead, out with it, fire away whereupon he then came forward. Mr. Hopper is a stout man, rather inclined to corpulency, with a round, open, honest countenance, full of lire aud fun, and a man most admirably calculated to interest a popular audience. If 1 we are not mistaken he is a whole-souled teetotal j temperance man, who is exceedingly popular in , their runks. He is a curtman, and will easily bring \ with him 2000 votes at the next charter election. ] Mr. Hopper proceeded :? I AIh. Nathaniel Hoppkii.?Gentlemen, when I first 1 heard of this meeting, 1 thought I would not attend at all ; ' but they would not let me off; an J when 1 did come, 1 felt 1 us if 1 could not speak at all, especially when 1 looked < around me and saw so many writing at.the table reporting i the speeches, 1 felt kind o' scart?put to a non plush? : (cheers). But, gentlemen, if 1 can say any tiling lor the ! cause, 1 am ready to do it?(Loud" cheets). Fellow i citizens, 1 am a true-born Native Republican citizen ; 1 and I have felt deeply aggrieved when 1 have look- l ed around me, and seen what kind of men we have in 1 iiftioe. M?*n ?ro in not Cor any merits of their I own, unless it is a merit not to have been twelvemonths I in the country?[Applause]?but our Common Council I put men in office to increase their own popularity. They are willing to put men in office if they will vote for them at the next election. They are ready to sell their country for coppers. [Loud applause.] Gentlemen, I am a Ri]>ealer?yes, a Repealer?[A voice, "Not an Irish Repealer?"]?no, just hark, and I'll tell you what kind of a repealer I am. I go partly with O'Connell, and I'll telly ou how. O'Connell goes for the principle that his country should l>e ruled bj thorough bred and true-born native Irishmen, and I go for just such a principle, that our own city and country should l?e governed by thorough bredjnnd true | lorn Native American Citizens. [Hero the applause* i stamping,and cheering were absolutely tremendous, shak- I ing the building to its very foundation.] This was the 1 very principle for which our forefathers fought, bled, and i died in the day * of the American Revolution. (Renewed I cheering.) But are we governed by native American citi- ' zens f No?but by men who have not yet got their brogues ] uj.j.iuunc.y I IWUIIIVI uuc uure mroiingan Irishman at the {tolls who still wore the same old 1 gray coat that he came from auld Ireland in. He'd just bccu voting. Says 1 to him, "Did you ever hear of the 1 Hudson river?' "And faith, your honor, I belave that I have?and I'm sure of it." '.'And," says I, "what part of the world is it in." "And sure, now, isn't it Asha (Asia)." < (Side iplitting laughter.) The fact is that most of the I rish who come to this country are as ignorant as children 7 years old. Then; are exceptions; some are of bright genius, and may lie qualified to vote; but what does that prove? Where there is one that is qualified, there are 20 i that are not. (A voice, "More than that.") Who is it that commit most of the robberies, and thefts, and murders in < this city and country, and against whom do we turn outkeys when we lie down at night to rest > Is it not the foreigners of every nation?the vagaliondx that are kicked i out of the old country treatise they are too wicked to live ! in it?and then don't these same fellows, as soon as they i come among us, walk right up to the liollot boxes and become our rulers? [Immense applause.J Ves, they are either our rulers, or our robbers?rule us, or rob us. Now c this is just w hat I, for one, don't like?and what's more, I don't believe American citizens will stand it much longer; ' I am for having them live here twenty-one years before naturalization; twenty-one years is short enough to learn our language?to learn our laws, and our manners and i customs. Let them serve as long an apprenticeship as w e have; w e lived here twenty-one years before we voted, 1 and let them do the same. [Applause.] I go, too, for the i repeal of the school bill. I am willing to give all i religious sects their rights, whether they be ( a- I tholioi. or Kpiscopalians, or Methodists, or Baptists. I I say to them all, " You shail have your rights, the Con- i stitution of our country guarantees them to you. But I I am in favor of the Bible without note or comment in our I public sclmols. The Bible is not sectarian. Our fore- ; fathers read it, and our constitution was formed on it. i ** ictftti u, m- n-iiu 11 wiuit; IH* WHN hiiyc, unci U was by his Iks?1 side when he died?[Sensation.] And I go for the same Bible. and I'll fight for it too?rApplause ] Take it from us, and what lietter off shall wc be tnan the heathens, the Hottentot*, or the Hindoo*, or even the people of Italy, where the Pope live*--[Great rlieering.] [Mr. Hopper dwelt at some length on thin liart of his subject, which was well received bv the people.J 1 know Catho- , lie* care nothing aliout it, although they swear by it; but 1 I'd hardly take their ontlis ujioii a stack of Bibles? [Laughter and applause.] But [ don't want to weary your patience?[< ries o| " Go on, go on"J Its nothing fuit a cartman that'* addressing you. (Cheer* and cries of " tio on.") But tliecartmen arc not to be despised?tinway the tow frocks came forward at the last election was a caution. Here Mr. Hopper related the *tory of an Irishman who was about to Rive in hi* vote at the charter election. " An' faith," says he to me, " who are you going to vote for F' " Why," say* I, " I am going to vote for the Common Council." "O, git out," says he, " you're voting the wrong ticket?I'm not going to vote for any Common Council, at all, at all?I'm going to vote for Aldermun Whaler again." (Shouts of laughter and ayplause.) Here Mr. Hopper related a number of very curious and somewhat extraordinary facts relative to the doing* of Uncommon Council in appointing for Inspector of < artmen. not a cartman who would know Nometliing about the business, but an Irishman who knows nothing at all on the matter. Another similar fact, relative to the firewood inspectors, one of whom actually does not know how to sign hi* name?but has to make hi* mark and that, too, with the knowle .ip> of the Alderman of the ward. When it wax told to Alderman Tillou, he replied, that such a man had as good a right to lie inspector a* any other man. And Alderman Patterson said the *ame. Mr. Hotiper stated a number ol other facts, with names, dates, am! places, all showing that all public office* were almost invariably given nwnv to foreigner*, and that a native American stood scarcely any chance at ail.

Mr. Chairman and fellow citizens, I cannot express my feelings at the honor conferred upon me in the unanimous ( call thai ha* Iwen made upon rne this evening, by this tre. mendotisl and most res|>ectablc meeting. Not having | hitherto mixed in any way in political life my position is , new, and I must say somewhat embarrassing to me ; I know not, therefore, why I should have met with this ditiliguishad honor?[Applause.] Your applause, gentlemen, tells me that it is an honor to address you. I assure roil with I deep heartfelt feelings, I appreciate it as such; [fond applause J lGentlemen, at our last meeting it was pointed out to you the danger of foreign interference with our institutions. I do not mean our faithful adopted citi/ens, _ who have become citizens from the pure motives to up- | hold anil enjoy our lilieral institutions. No, gentlemen: these I do not mean; it is the indirect, the underhand, the 1 Mibtoi ranean throes of designing institutions abroad that * we are to fear -fear, did I say; gentlemen, I fear them not, and sure am 1 none here fear* any foreign influence) that is, w hile thv Native Americans and iu association arc true to themselves, t ome one, come the whole world, let but each American in the country, in the moral truth anil his fdl physical force- in n solid phalanx of freemen's rights?be combined?we can defy the whole. (Tieinendous and long continued applause.) There is another ]>oint, Mr. Chairman und fellow citizens, to which I would call your attention, and that w hich hat done more mischief to our country and every individual in it, than could be done in the ordinary routine of affairs in one hundred years. Gentlemen, I will not try to work upon your feeling* w ith the old und worn out claptrun method of sjieakiug of glorious constitutions, be., fought for und won by the dearest blood of our ancestors. No. sir, I w ill not do this. They fought as men should fight?not for gain, not for party nor ottice, nor tor ambition, (k-ntlemen, their souls soared above the sordid feelings of this world ; they fought for liberty, they fought for their country, they fought for the rights of man us hewulks?not the slave of faction or party,

but for man, the upright man, the image of his Uod ?(terrific shouts of applause.) Gentlemen, it needs no humble individual paneg) ric to speak of such men as these; we should approach them as w ould have done the ancients, as if the* were gods ; to lie mentioned with that respect and awe due only to such men fighting in the glorious cause of the e<|Ual rights of man. When we and all parties and their bickerings are lost in the oblivion of time, they .gentlemen, like the morning star, shall shine with resplendent vividness, fresh as the summer's rose.?(Vehement applause.) Gentlemen, they fought their battles for the benefit of jiosterity; we must continue to light liattles for the same purpose. They fought against foreign oppression, we must tight to prevent the }>ossihility of foreign o|>pression or even foreign influence; and wnat is of still greater importance to every individual of this, community and their posterity, we must combat internal oppression. We must, by a bold, energetic front, show that we are American freemen, able and capable to protect ourselves?not, gentlemen, by physical force, but by the noble power which the Almighty lias blest us with ?the power of reason. (Much applause.) Mr. chairman and gentlemen, there is one evil to which I would call Voilr nt(i>ntinn rif ??/\ rmnll es the iwor and the community at Urge more dreadfully than Joes the tyranny of the" worst aristocracy in any other country?that iii that hydra-headed monster, the institution of banks. Is then* one single individual, let me ask of you?is there one, who ha* not suffered by these nefarious, these cheating institutions ? Gentlemen, 1 ask again, is there one (Loud cries of 110, not one.) I knew it. These institutions, gentlemen, are not the ones our fathers fought for, nor are they the institutions they Med for. To overturn such wicked outrageous monopolies they fought and hied, and we in all the majesty of an enlightened free body of men, shall we tolerate these nests for plunder, conceived and begotten in corruption and dishonesty I (Loud criea of "no?never.") Say with me. Gentlemen, no?[Tremendous cries of " No.''] I would require you to look back to the years 1W36-37. Good times; excellent times; great times, gentlemen. Beef was 18 cents per lb.; flour ten to twelve dollars per barrel; butter two and ilxpcnce to three shillings jmt pound; and every other article of provision in like manner, were at enormous prices. What was the cause of this! a dearth, short crops, over population, or more mouths than provisions for them. No, sir; it was not these, it was the banks. One illustration will point out the mornl of the whole. A friend of mine got a situation in a mill at Lockport, where he learnt the business of preparing flour; l>eing very saving and industrious, he accumulated a few hundred dollars, so that he managed to rent a mill himself, and, without a cent in his pocket, borrowed twenty-five thousand dollars of a Buffalo bank?[Laughter.]?or a bank in Buffalo, if you please?chartered a schooner, and far up the Lakes bought up wheat at a mere nominal price. This was put through the mill, and the flour sold at $10 Ml per barrel. He then borrowed from several buffers, or Buffalo banks, over one hundred thousand dollars, and speculated in like manner, with similar results, the banks receiving one-third of the protits only for their risk. Gentlemen, here was a man, of ' no res]ionsibility, getting thousands of dollars merely to speculate on. Now, gentlemen,the majority of these banks have burst up; and what are the consequences? Provisions are half the price, because these speculators could borrow 110 more shinplastcrs to buy them up. I would ask you, gentlemen, is it not a shame?a burning shamethat a few individuals can put their heads together, and form themselves into a "bank?" A bank! (Jet a parcel of torn fools for their tools?manufacture shinnlasters? throw open their doors, and they are ready to discountlending other i>eople's money and property to their own friends and relations. Secure within themselves, they seat themselves by their own fireside!?their own property secure?and with their feet to the tire, sip their wine, and very complacently smile while they ruin thousands Look back, gentlemen, to the years 183?>-37?the good times?the United Bank had lent, and had in circulation upwards of fifty millions of dollars. We hod in circula lion over iwo nuiuireu minions 01 dollars, which runic from Ktigland. We hail upwards of thirty millions ol dollars from other Kurojiean States, and upwards of three liundred millions of worthless trash, the emissions of one thousand and one still more worthless banks, making up the tremendous sum of nearly six hundred millions of dollars. Was this in gold and silver, gentlemen? Would it liad been so, and we should have good times still, even it lialf the sum had been of the precious metals; but no. it A'as worthless pa]>er, based ujion air?nothing but bul>">les. What w ere the consequences of these .' Upwards jf nearly six hundred millions of dollars, being n dishonest hands, was lent out to Tom. Dick, ind Harrv, who lent it to the Browns, Johnsons, Smiths and Wilsons, who gambled it away in some manler or other. The consequences were, that provisions ivere dear, real estate went up to enormous fictitious [irices, and the results, unheard of high rents. Now, six lundred millions in circulation for two years will make a ?reat stir; but, eventually, who feels most, or are the vie:ims ol the revulsion, of the stir.' The poor. The law live years' misery speaks Rloud who are the victims. Tliif vast sum of money being only paper, and the paper manufactories,? [laughter]?unable to purchase nigs, are lilown?completely done up?and no more millions of dollars are to tie liorrowed. As the two or three banks that have withstood the shock now go on a specie basis, they want good security?nojone-third s)>eciiIation, but good security, when they lend gold and silver; the r.peeu)ators have no securities, and their principles are in keeping with their securities?(Laughter and applause) ?and so they cry out bail times, and each party try to put it on the other's shoulders, or lay it at each other's loors. Gentlemen, I proclaim it, thev an' all guilty?agijramlizement is their view?the people, the country, it* lionor?everthing may go to the devil [epplausej so thai they can get places and put money in their purses, and these failing, they tuni politicians, their dernier resort. Through ]<olitirs they see the el domdo from their disa|>pointed hopes?]>oljtics the el dorado of their ambition. It remains with us, the American Remiblican Association to clear away the rubbish; to purily the atmosphere; to make every individual who gets up a bank, throw every cent's worth of his own monies anil property in the rink ot his institution; that will save the poor an infinite deal ol vexation. What is it to the jwor man if in bail times he earn sixpence and pay sixpence for a loaf of bread; or what does it benefit liim if the times are rood, if he earn a shilling and give a shilling for a loaf of oread. It must be worked out, gentlemen, U|ion the legitimate principles of trade, and prosperity must follow. It remains for us to instil into the hearts of a new generation the pun* republican principles by which we are to be governed?when the honest citizen, sitting with his family enjoying his domestic fireside, will accept office, forsake all that in dear to him, to serve country and bodent his fellow men. [Loud cheers.] 1 know, gentlemen, 'that this is effecting much; yet if each memlier of the American Repul>lican Association is of true heart and true to his cause,we must succeed. [Loud and continued cheers.] I would urge upon each of you assembled here to use your most strenurms exertions to further our cause?we linve inJoTfew day r formed n bright and magnificent nucleus, (springing from thousanes of roots; anil all that is necessary is, that every individual forming each separate root of this nucleus shall act, that our principles, our honest purposes and honest sentiments shall radiate to the confines of the United States, and the results will be, that with the rising sun ill the east to the setting in the west, the Republican AsMxiatioe will lie hailed as the dawn of a new era. The poetry of man. Liberty !?[the applause here is indescribable]--my breast swelfs with emotion,'Mr. Chairman, at '.lie idea, that I, humble as I nm, should, however reTiotc, lie the cause of gaining, if it lie only one individual :o the great cause of the American' Republican Pajty. I hank yon, Mr. Chairmen and Gentlemen, for the lionoi iou have done me in patiently listening to me. He sat Ii?. Mowkoe Thomp<os then rose and was about to speak. but very politely yielded to Mr. Oradiah Brooks. who ba risen at the same moment on another part of tinplatform, and who hail first caught the eye of the Chairman. Mr. Brooks spoke as follows :?Mr. Chairman and Fellow Citizens :?We have heard a good deal about revivals r?f religion in these times, and also a (food deal about the ree-total Abstinence Society Reformation?(cheer*) ? ind I think that a greal deal of good has been done by hem?that is by the Tec-totalleni, for 1 must say that ever lince I was cheated out ofthe price ofa (food horse and cart iv a neighbor of mine, who shall be nameless, as he has rat a small family of nine children, and I don't wish to I \|?jse him to the world, as I would, I am sure, have 8 < air chance "of doinfc in this tremendous gathering ;? , mt who Lad Just experienced religion, and a' most lii-d in convulsions at a distracted meetin' the week tefore?(Laughter.)

I'm ready to go lie death against them. Now let's give three groans for ' he-ii. my Ikivs. [Three terribly denunciatory groans '' vere accordingly given.) Three cheer* now for the 1 American Iti'puMicnn party," and three cheers which ' night have been heard at Hudson square, burst from the P mfltltude, Mr. Brook* giving the time and throwing in 1 lis stentorian voice in tone* that were heard even over 11 he combined shout of all assemble!. I ' \t this Ktiige of (lie meeting the room heeiunr hi- J ull'ernhly crowded, mid hundreds were KtanditiK i, omul lite door, vainly endeavoring to gel inside. i, \i length wiiiic one outside culled out for Mr. John- '< on -John Franklin Johnson, of the 10th ward?

"j es!"?'The City Government"?"City Reform"?"The Streets"?"The Contract" ?"The l'olicc Reform"?"Down with the Police"?"The Police is down already"?"Where's Whiting f?"Where's Justice Taylor?" Thus cried a hundred different voices, which were silenced by Mr. Johnson, who said):?Gentlemen?you are cutting out work enough for me till next election. But it is not talking that will bring alxiut a reform in our city government. We dont want talking? we want voting. (Cheers, and the cry "We'll give 'em notes.") You must give them votes if you would have reform. If a reform is ever made it must be made by yourselves in the ballot-lnixes. (Great cheering.) Our city lathers will never make a reform in the council chamber. ("Never !") Did not the whigs promise us reform during the whole of last yonr?reform in the )iolice department? reform in street cleaning?reform in the lire depurtmdnt ?and reform every where T ("They did.") But did they make it) ("No!" "No!" "No1,") They were afraid to touch the subject of police relbrm for fear, if they did,they should lose their election last spring. They were afraid of the influence of the ]>olice officers and their friends at the primary meetings. They said it was of no use to pass any ordinances of reform, for if they did, the Mayor would veto them. But they should have done their duty and left the Mayor to do his. ("And he's not afraid to do it.") The Whip Common Council did not do their duty?they did nothing at all?and we kicked them out of the Common Council with the right foot?("right, and no mistake")? of 0000 voters, good men and true. (Loud cheers.) 1 say we kicked them out.for 1 was my self then a locofoco,a Tammany llall man, and so I am yet, so far us principles are concerned ; but our party don't stick up to their principles? ("1 gues not"?" not exactly.")?I recollect in vari uus I'uiit vi hiiilulls iiui J i'? w mi .*\iut-i inuii i uruj , inai lit always promised if the Democratic party came into power this year, that there should he a thorough Police reform? and street cleaning reform also?and so the leader* of the party all promised. But the truth is hoth the Democrats and Whigs are two very promising parties- (laughter ami cheers;) hut that is all you can say of them?for they never perform. I like my party, but I like my principles better. (Applaiue.)? Not that 1 love ( jesar less, hut that I love Rome more. 1 go for reform, and not promises. (Cheers.) I go for a Police that shall give security to our persons and to our property. ("So w ill we.") I go for a I'olice, mv friends, that shall give such security to our persons,that we shall not tie exposed to lieing murdered in our most public streets, in the midst of long and bloodyrows, like young Stanley, who was butchered night before last, in Canal street, far more cruelly than you would butcher a calf? (Creat sensation.) I go for a Fire Department that shall actually reduce the rates of Insurance. (" So will we, and vote for it too.") Is it not right, fellow citizens?tax payers of the city of New Vork, is U not right that you yourselves, after expending twelve or fifteen millions of dollars for croton water, to secure yourselves against the desolation of such fires as we had in ls3a and 1836?is it not right that you should have a fire department that will now give you this security, and reduce your insurance ? (" It is our right, and we will have it too.") But if the Whigs will not give you these reforms, who shall ? ("The American Republican Party.") If the Democrats who are now in office will not give you a thorough Police?an efficient Fire Department ?clean streets?and retrenchment of taxes, then, fellow citizens, who shall ? (A tremendous shout of " The American Republican rarty"?"we will"?"our votes at the next charter election.'*) Fellow citizens, are you afraid to vote in favor of your own principles??(A universal " No.") Will you vote for men who will carry out your principles??(One and all.V'yes.") Will you vote for good men and true, who are afraid of neither the Irish, nor the French, nor the Dutch, nor the Devil, nor any other foreigners ! (Laughter, great applause, nnd another tremendous shout, "yes.") Then in iiumble imitation of our illustrious and promising friends,the whlgs and locofocos, I promise you at the next chatter election you' shall have a Mavor and Common Council, who will give you a re form in accordance with your principles?(most enthusiastic cheering, amid which Mr. Johnson retired.) After Mr. Johnson hud concluded, there were loud cries for Brown, Thompson, Locke, and other popular speakers of the party. Messrs. Brown and Thompson were not present, or rather not outside, and therefore Mr. William Adams Locke, of the third ward, mounted the hogshead, and addressed the people. Mr. Locke is a gentleman of very firm and dignified bearing?formerly, as we understand, a house carpenter, but now retired upon a fortune. He appeared to be about fifty years of age:? Mr. William Adams Locke?Gentlemen and fellow citizens?(Cheers)?1 regard the formation of a Native Republican p.irtv at the present time as peculiarly auspiciouR to the affairs of our beloved country. The party has been formed suddenly, it is true; and although in years it is a youth, yet in strength it is a man?(Loud cheering.) And not only in strength is it a man, but even in its councils, and in its speech, and in its deeds, it is a man. But what I would say is?for I am not much accustomed to public speaking?(Cheers)?that the speech of this young man, the American Republican party, will be hearil throughout the country?(" It is heard.") Yes it is beard already, thanks to the independence of the public press?(Here some one cried out "Three cheers for the independent public press," which were given with great enthusiasm)?and the voice of this same young party will be heard at Washington by our Scnators'and our Representatives. In two weeks Congress will meet, and for what purpose will they meet??( ' To make a President," cried twenty voices.) "Yes, I believe it may justly be said . that the principal business of the ensuing Congress will be to manufacture a President; and it is with shame that I sav it. But. my friends, do yon elect your Senators anil Representatives to Congress for the purpose of manufacturing a President ??(Loud " No's" from the multitude.) Do you send them there to npeud their time incaucussing, log-rolling, backing and filling, scheming and wire pulling. with no other object in view but to pull down one party.that they may build tip another on its defeat ??("No" " no," and loud cheers.) lint what do you send them to Congress for? Is it not to maintain pure American re fMiiiiirtlii |n mi |[?I?:.N?lu U'Kinimt: |<JI WM- SUUII?OHM to mind their constituents' business ??(Tremendous cheer'off.) Here Mr. T-ocke was proceeding to say something about the influence which this party would eventually produce even in our halls ot national legislation, when he was interrupted by a gang of rowdies, who, with the design of disturbing the meeting, cried out "Three cheers for Daniel O'Connell?threecheersfor Repeal?and three groans for Slavery." The six cheers for O'Connell and Repeal were given, but by the time they came to the groans for slavery, they found themselves all knocked into a cocked hat. The way they were used up was a caution to the trinity of O'Connell, Repeal and Anti-slavety, when they attempt to interfere with true American citizens. Here there were loudcriesfor "Cobb," "Cobb," and in a few minutes a young man, in the garb of a mechanic, with a fine intelligent face, modestly mounted the hogshead just vacated by the last speaker, and recited in a deep manly voice, and with good gestures, the following |>oem :? 1 he American Republican's Dream. Br Br.MJ.iMi* ('ohf, Jr. I heard a deep and angry cry, I.oud and deep it rang on high, Borne by the landless wind* along. From an eager and an earnest throng, That thought a* freemen only dare, And wore the look that freemen wear. I heard a voice ring through the crowd. Methought its tones were clear and loud, Anil told of glorious days of yore, Of the laurel wreaths tneir fathers wore, Of trophies won by land and sea, * In their sires' ships for liberty. Methought it asked, "Shall a servile hand, The refuse ol many a vaitnl land, Now lord it o'er a sunny clime, Their fathers lost in olden time 1 If they would yield to honeyed words The trophies of their fathers' swords K* I thought an answer loud and shrill, Pealed from many a distant hill, Hose from the sands of orean's shore, Mingled its notes with tempest's roar, I thought with brighter light did glow Their glances as they answ ered "No."' 1 thought it not an empty dream, Not failing light, their eyes bright gleam, That times would come, when Celt anil (lael, And the Swahian crew tliut dared assail, The freedom of their native race, Would he heard no more in council place. Every stanza of this iwiem was received with remendous applause, anil after Mr. Cobb ceased re-iting, a number of the multitude, iri the enthusiasm jfthe moment, seized him and bore him in trifimph on their shoulders. Mr. Peter T)e La Ree was then loudly called for, but that gentlemen not being in the room at he time, Mr. Whitney (the opening speaker) promised that Captuin Brown of (lie Thirteenth ward diould address the meeting. Loud cheers from all arts of the hall followed this proposal, .and the Captain came forward and expressed his views triefly and emphatically as follows:? Caftain Bkowm.?Mr. chairman and fellow Citizens, while I take the lilx-rty to intorm you that I am no spokesnan I take the lit>erty'at the same'time to inform von that [ am a native horn Americnn. I ho|w that to alf of you he cause in sup|mrt of which we have met to night is as lear as it is to me. And I hope that all the friends of our ause will appear to-morrow night, at James Warings,and nan iff st their sincerity. Fellow citizens, we have, ilthough yet in our infancy,hern called all sorts of names, t has been said we were of the democratic party. Let mr banner answer to what party we belong. By the bye, alking of banners, I may mention n fact illustrative of In- spirit in which some pnrttes view our movement*. i the chairman of the Nintli Wart!

I mention thin to show the i-elings entertnineil towards us in some quarter*. hut notfit Islanding *nch exhibition, I have no hesitation in exressing my belief that at the spring election we shall ( arry IM ward*. Hume of our friend* are sanguine enough 9calculate upon ourcarrjing seventeen ward*, but let u* I ie content with twelve, and let u* have twelve. I have icen told that I wa* not a Native American. The m#n i ho says no lies. My vote, ata II events, will show what I Tofes* to lie, and I fervently trmt that the 11th ward will I how to-morrow evening, that it i? worthy to share the , onor* which to-night have been mi liberally showered |*m the Htli ward. < apt.

Hi-lore Hi tting down, the Captain read the follow- J ig iiiitrioiir ellusion of In* hoii, h juvenile Allien* _ hi Republican, and a pupil ol the Public riehnol, tow in the 13th year of hi?age:? WK NKVK.il WILL BK SLAVE*. From birth my native land I've owned, A* Liberty'* blest shore; In every heart *he sit* enthroned, 1 And standi at every door; Then ihall we lose our chartered right Through base and sordid knaves .'

Then let us raise our bumpers high, With Croton water briglit, And ev'ry effort still defy, Kor Odd, our land, and right! Join hand and heart with one accord, And waft it o'er the waves, By land and sea lie this the word? We never will 1m- slaves ! This youthful effervescence wan hailed with a tumult of applause, which was put a stop to by the appearance of Mr. I)e La Rke, who taking lu* stand beside the chairman, responded to a cheering of invitation the meeting by singing with exquisite taste this original chaunt:? Come, natives, arouse ! our cause is just ; Our banners an; waving high. We've been drove to the light, and conquer we must, We'll tight till we conquor or die ! We'll light till we conquor or die ! Kor soon to the ti^ht, boys, forward we'll go, ?? mi r|unis ?u iigm uuu nruris ?u i?oiu~Our carbines are bent, we cry to the foe : " Halt, knaves ! go anil creep in your.holes !"

Come, natives, arouse, lie. An enthusiastic burst of rupture followed, which reached such a height that the chairman felt it necessary to intimate his desire that the members of this great, and as fully shown, popular party, should set an examnle to allot liens in moderation and firmness as well as enthusiasm. Tin* chairman's modest, lint well-timed remarks, had an instantaneous effect on the meeting, who were again enlivened with the following melodious dash of patriotism from the same voice:? DON'T GIVE UP THE 8Hir. Our canvass is spread, and our anchor's a-trip, And we start with a favoring gale; And if danger should come, why we'll give it a grip, And we'll ne'er think of taking in sail. Unfurl our brave ensign, to float to the,bree7.e,' Our country's bright stripes and its stars, For the old Constitution can stand any seas, While mann'd with American tars. Heart of oak is our ship?hearts of oak are our men, And proudly we'll tread on our deck; We've rtogg'd foreign boasters, we'll do it again, Till we make their proud heroes a wreck. The Tapal Armada is heaving in sight, Then boldly come up to the grip, And like our'brave Lawrence, we'll rush to the fight, With his motto?"Don't give up the Ship. , Don't give up the ship while a plank's left afloat, But at 'em and at 'em again, Till you put priest mid partisan both in the boat. Arouse ye ! acquit ye like men ! We know them full well with their Jesuit tricks, And we mean to attack them this trip, And we'll show the old spirits of 76, And our motto?"Dont give up the ship." And when we have lower'd their standard, my boys, And broke their shilelalis in nieces. We'll bid all our friends and our neighbors rejoice, As theory of our triumph increases; Then steer our ship boldly right up to the polls, Americans come to the grip! J Our tars are frank hearted and jovial souls, And our motto?"Dont give up the ship." Mr. Jamv.s N. Jonks was next loudly called for and made a few sensible remarks upon the necessity of the American Republican party, showing the completeness of their organization. Air. Jones was listened to with undivided attention.
