The kinv's denial and stnuwfly-expresncd horror of the contemplated violation of the constitution have tranqnilized the commotion, which at one time threatened to be serious.

The news from India is not of a remarkable kind. Tranquility prevailed in the interior.

There were rumors respecting the State of Afghanistan. Dost Mahammed was said to be " ruling with a rod of ironand one of the victims to his austerity was Am en Oola, a traitor to Shah Sujah and the British.

For simple every-j \ wear plaid cachemires and flannels Kcossaises, with c pes of Thibet wool, checked or striped, and Pekins de laine, are principally used for the robes redingote and peignoir* fertnes; the make is high, with full backs and tight sleeves, ornamented with jockeys, godets, or double biasis, and pelerines of small size, covering the shoulder* and buttoning in front from top to bottom. Corsages continue to be made long, but not in the extreme, a little basque, but without making a vary sharp point, skirts are also very long; generally speaking, bodies are made high, in the style of puricaine redingote.' Gimp still forms a favorite trimming, and it is often enriched by gold, silver, heart* or bugles. Resilles, fringes of chenille, cord, or colored silks, with point de Venue and silk guipure, are all used to ornament thejredingots of satin or velvet. Fur is now reaji|ieariiig, and will be much worn, not not only for muffs, pelerines, Sic., but as trimmings for dresses, for which purpose swansdown, chinchilla, ?tmine, sable, geebe, marten and all employed. The pelisses bourc ous and manteaux will all be worn this winter ; but though retaining the same names, will offer some novelty, both in make and ornament. The new scarf termed echarpe yacht Victoria, is a tartan plaid of large pattern, ami vcrv ?<ift texture. Pelisse* of rachemire are lined with satin. quilted in pattern like embroidery Scurf* of velours c.ameleon are with rover*, ami have half sleeve*. Veils, as well as lace, will continue to be introduced on autumual and winter bonnets; they accord with the satin, velvet, velours euingle. figured silks now in use. Bonnets remain small and low at the ears, a little more rounded in the crown, and the front rather more evase, open, lireen velvet bonnets have been lined with white velvet, and white satin bonnets with pink. Many velvet bonnets are ornamented with feathers, mounted in the style of the bird of Taradite ; they are shaded in colon to match the material of the bonnet?sometimes two are placed inclining to the same side. One of the prettiest novelties is the bonnet of velvet colibre, ornamented with marabouts calibre;' which is a mixture ofblueand red glace with white; the capote Andoloute is also approved. Kor caps, the paj sanne form is most fashionable, with 'small crown, flat head-piece, and lappets. ( ap? a la vieille are also pretty, having noetids mid agremens of rtt>bon and lappets. All articles of embroidery run on spots, rings, the colfee-berry, and. after these running patterns en vermicelle, filagree, kc. Pocket handkerchiefs are with borders of large colored spots, scrolls of one or two colors, with corners and initials. It is remarked that coiffures of hair are generally worn rather higher en neglige; the style in bandeaux, with tortoise-shell comb for parties, intermixed with flowers or a wreath of roses, placed above the forehead.

Ksoiiih f'ommrnriai. ?The recent accounts | brought by the l ireut Western have had a tendency to deaden the'ootton market, as the belief is general that the new crop, if not an average one, will he a fair crop and that with the immense stock of the staple held in Europe, and especially in Liverpool, prices cannot rise beyond the luint w hich they have touched during the last few weeks. The probability is that prices will retrogade. This is the feeling in the'manufacturing districts and the flatness which ha< marked the market recently has not lieen owing to anv falling off in order* or the state of trade generally, ^liut the result of the feeling to which we have alluded.

Metals?Kxteiuive sales have been made in British Copper at improving prices, and 9]d is now demanded for Sheathing. This improvement has been caused by the de created production during the recent strike among the workmen, which ha* been estimated at aliout 2000 tons. An increased consumption in the home trade is also going forward, consequent upon the general improvement in business, and then- exists a good demand lor export, prices hat ing improved in several of the foreign markets. The currency being still moderate, is therefore susceptible of further improvement, should the demand continue. Kast India Tin has been much enquired after on account of some large orders from America, and prices have advanced atiout 3s per cw t; about 3000 slabs Danca have been sold this week at Arts and ,'?0k, and the w hole of the stock in Holltmd. except 11,000 slabs, at .V>s |? i cw t; some parcels of Straits have also been sold at !>'?.

In the value of Southern Oil there is no variation; at public sale 150 tuns American fishing were all sold, chiefly to the home trade, line at i.'3fi 15s. to ?37, second quality, at ?36 to iNlti 10., and third do at ?3A As. to ?3."> lis jht tun. Sperm Oil sells well, at fully former rates. The market has been in a dull state for Linseed Oil, anil prices have declined to 30s to 30s 3d per cwt on the spot. Rape Oil has been taken sparingly at 36s. fid. for pale. For Olive Oil there is rather more inquiry, and former prices are maintained; the stocks are yet large. Cocoa Nut Oil sells slowly at former rates. Rice.?A fair amount of business has been transacted of late in Carolina Rice at 21s. to 26s. per cwt. Tobacco.?The market last month remained in the same ilull state ax for several months past ; the home trade buyers deter purchasing until more of the late large importations have been sampled. Kor exportation no oemaud, and neither can any extensive business for the present be expected , for generally speaking, the Continent is well stocked, and selling at lower rates than our present prices. The importations into this port have been, this year, about 16,000 hhds. against about 11,000 hhds. last year, and several mare vessels are expected. The sampling is now proceeding fast, and so far as may lie itUfapd at present, the crop o( Virginia will prove very inferior. ann that of Kentucky a very superior quality, both as to grow th, color and condition Holders still stand upon previous rates, and fine Virginia leaf is likely to maintain its prices, but the middling and common must recede, before business of any extent can take place for the Continent,?so with all classes of Kentucky leaf. The " Orlof Wvk" was sold for Antwerp at about 13s. Man laud in little demand ; only a few hlids sold for home use. Negrohead in rather better demand. Liverpool Cotton Market, Nov.3.?-Up to yesterday our Cotton market had a decided tendency downwards ; prices of American receded id to Jd, and Surat Id per lb ; but after the arrival of the Great Western the trade began to assume a more cheering aspect, and the quotations today show little alteration from those of the preceding Friday. The demand has again improved, and we havenow a fair business doing The sales on the whole have been small, merely amounting to 16,0:>0 bales, viz., 14,290 American, .VTO Brazil. 400 Kgyptian, M0 West India, and 720 K.ast India. Speculators nave bought 5,000 American. Nov. 4.?Our Cotton market exhibits no change to-dav ; prices are firm, with a fair steady inquiry, and the sales w ill amount to about f> 000 bales. We may here remark that the reduction of Jd per lb, which had taken place in American descriptions since the abatement of the recent excitement, has been partially regained, to the extent of Jd per lb within the last few days. Oct. 20.?On the receipt of the advices by the Boston steamer, the market becamc languid, and the demand considerably decreased.

Speculators have taken 0,100 America, 1000 Pernambuco, 400 Laguayra, and S00 Carthegcna. Oct. 27.?The languor which pervaded the trade during the greater part of last week, has continued up to the present period, and there are no indications of returning activity. The demand has proved limited ; there has been very little speculative inquiry, and a further decline of Jd per lb has taken place in the value of American and Snrat There is, however, no change in or Kgyptian, both of which remain lirm. Some Sea Islands were sold yesterday at a reduction of $d per lb from the prices previously obtained by private contract. Speculators have taken this week 3,700 American, and 300 Kurat. and the total sales have consisted of 18,-it*) bales, vil.: 2.700 American ; I,.'>40 Brazil , 360 Kgyptian ; 120 West India, &.C.; and I,.WO Kuxt India, Sir.

Havre Cottow Mahki.t, Oct. 31.?Since last report our market has been in a dull and declining state, a complete reaction has taken place in business, the sales have Iteeii extremely limited, and 011 some days scarcely a bale ha* changed hands. The situation of the Liverpool market, on which ours is in a great measure dependent, is the chief cause ot the depression that has predominated throughout the week: but though it was perhaps to lie e.\pectedthat some check would be given to the late amendment, such a sudden depreciation could not be looked for. It may also he attributed to the eagerness aviacxd by some speculators to realise promptly, but as the operations have only been to a small amount, it can hardly he considered in any other light than as proceeding from the impulse of the moment. T'rices have, nowever, felt the effects of the pressure, and on Friday the Brokers'standard was lowered to fi to f3 on the United States ordinary and inferior descriptions.

Ole Bi ll the Greatest Performer on the Violin now living, has arrived in the Caledonia, from Liverpool. He is yet young, and of un agreeable exterior, tall and elegantly formed. All ihe criticisms which have been passed on his talent in European journals, agree in stating.that his playing is quite different from that of all the most distinguished performers that have preceded him, and that his execution surpasses every thing which has been heretofore heard on the violin. A chief characteristic of this artist is the calmness and the unassuming manner with which he produces the mosi inconceivable effects, and conquers the greatest difficulties. Hisstaecado without end?his quartetto, which he executes on his violin without any other accompaniment?his double and octavo passages are exhibited by this ingenius performer, in a manner which astonishes even professional artists.

Vai.i'abi.e Improvement i> Raij.road Cars.? One of the most valuable improvements to the ease, durability and comfort of motion of railroad cars, has recently been introduced by Alderman Kanouse. Machinist, of Jersey city, which from its simplicity and easy adaptation to the wheels of any of the cars now in use, renders it of special attention to all persons interested in railroads throughout th< United States. We therefore for the benefit of the public at large, conceive it a duty to notice it as an improvement in mechanics of s|?ccial importance. S<? !lllir?h lift hull it K/mn n?nm^<>PA/l kir Knainoua m?ti arid those acquainted with mechanic arta, that n Committee of tlie American Institute on Arts and Science* have thu* reported in relation thereto:?

It ii good. Price of the lecture 25 cents. Such lectures are a capital school for our young merchants. They give them an enlarged insight into the mysteries of business?of buying cheap and selling dear, and of driving frood bargains. Such lectures, for merchants, must cause business to look up, and stocks to rise. Three cheers for cottons, calicoes, and the corn trade. If our young mercantile philosophers will only confine their attention to the abstrnct aud abstruse sciences, they will become better merchants, do business on sounder principles, and never turn bankrupt#. All that is wanting is a Mercantile Philosophical College down in Hanover Square. Seriously?when young merchants forsake their legitimate business to run alter unsubstantiated theories and philosophical Peculations, we shall expect to see "bankruptcy" at the footing up of the ledger. Great Temperance Meeting at Concert Hall, Broadway, last evening. A great impetus seems to have been given to all moral.and intellectual movements in this great metropolis. The temperance cause?always flourishing?has taken a fresh start, and between it and the new reform party, in the political world, we have a fair prospect of a thorough revolution in morals, politics, and "all the ramifications of social life. A very large and enthusiastic meeting of the Marshall Society took place last evening, at their large hall, in Broadway. After an eloquent and effective speech from Mr. Parker, of Boston, the meeting was thus addressed by Dr. J. A. Houston :? Mr. Chairman?Our lot has fallen in a stirring time. On all hands we may perceive the truthful indications that we, of this generation, are passing through an era in the history of our race, pregnant with most momentous results. A* has been well said, by no unthoughful student of the world's progress, that which we have heen accustomed to call the old age of the world was indeed hut ita infonrv Hut lh>> iIovk nf the r*rn/11i?rl u't'iilfnf*km nl' th?? world have passed away. The barriers by which the power* of the mind, and the spirit of free inquiry were imprisoned have been unlocked, and the emancipated energies of our nature, directed into ten thousand new and inviting channels of discovery and labor, are every where at work quietly enlarging the boundaries of truth and knowledge, and elevating, refining, instructing, and ministering new enjoyments to that nature originally made " only a little lower than the? angels," and the full measure of whose capacitic* and strength, and nobility only a few, even now, have been able dimly to discover. (Applause.) The minds of men have l>een awakened. Never can return the dark reign of implicit faith. The spirit of inquiry exists every where. That philosophy?the genuine and ever-faithful friend of man?which takes nothing for granted, -investigates?reasons?never relinquishes the pursuit of the truth?is every day adding to its disciples, and extending its dominions of justice, order, and happiness. Already the happiest results are apparent. Tne dark and frowning battlements behind whjch the errors and bigotries ->f the past had entrenched themselves, are beginning to mingle with the dust; and hoary prejudice herself,even in the darkness of her unbelief at last awakens to the conviction, or at least suspicion, that the latter day of light and liberty is coming. Institutions and usages, covered with all the venerableness of years, which had been identified with the existence of communities for ages ?which had long commanded and received from all, an homage as ardent and sincere, as it was blind and unreflecting, have been obliged to yield before the omnipotence or the revolutionary movement, and have been remodelled and reformer, or totally overthrown.? (Loud applause.) Still there are many who cannot discern tliese " signs of the times." To them the whole aspect of the age is gloomy, and forbidding. The ultraisms?and (the extravagances?and the frenzied excitements, which arc in truth the harbingers of a new and better order of things, in their eyes portend nothing but disaster. The agitations which nt present convulse the reliirinus world to its centre and u-hirlt nro snlittinir it up into a thousand new sects and faction*?for there arc Tactions, alas ! in the churches us well as in the Stateindicate to these purblind observers the approaching triumph of cold and cheerless infidelity, over all that is pure and lovely and of good report. And again, in the moral world, this class of observers regard with the most unaffected horror the annunciation of all those projects for the amelioration of mankind, and of course the promotion of virtue, and justicc, and order, which were counter to the old notions handed down to them by their fathers? an inheritance, by the way, of which the recipients very seldom allow themselves to be deprived without a fhard struggle. And then in the political world, the shaking ol States and kingdoms?the convulsive stragglings of oppressed men?the din and shock of right contending with might, inspire these timid spectators only with affright.? The visions of the future are full of images of terror and misfortune?fearful and threatening as those which hurry through the dreams of dying wicked men. But the enlightened and intelligent student of the times knows nothing of this alarm or dismay. He needs not to be told, that all this froth and turmoil must precede and clearly betoken the advent of that di?y of jcnrrnl prosperity and calm, for which all true citizens of the world so ardently pray?that in the words of the eloquent Macaulay " the extreme violence of opinions gradually subsides?hostile theories correct each other?the scattered elements of truth ceasejto conflict and begin to coalesce?nnd that finally a system of justice and order is educed out of the chaos." At such an epoch as that which I have feebly endeavored to desc ribe, a very important question comes home to every man. The great, prevalent, reforming spirit of the age addresses itself to all, and in the solemn voice of authority, it asks What durst thou? Stand ye here idle 1 Or art thou in thine own sphere devoting thy energies to the great cause of truth and man V To every man and woman in this assemblage this deeply solemn question is addressed. And disguise the matter as we may?however lightly we may affect to treat it now?we mar rest assured that we shuM one day be called upon to render an account of the manner in which we received that loud, intelligible, trum|K>t-tongued monition to duty which the events of the age are delivering to every man of this gene, ration. I trust that I do not address a single indi vidual who is so ignorant of his destinv as to suppose, that wt have no nobler part to i>lay in tfiis great drama of exist ence than to furnish a tolerably satisfactory reply to the query?" What shall I eat, and what shall I drink, and wherewithal shall I be clothed What then, 1 ask, without further preface, are we doing I What are we doing to advance the great cause of truth and virtue, and benefit those who an: to come after us, when we shall have join, ed the solemn congregation of the dead ' (Applause.) In connecting lyourselves with the great cause of the Temperance Keformation, you have done much in the way ol discharging yourduty to your fellow men, and the sacntl interests of morality anrt virtue. Ours is a scheme of no questionable utility. We are practical reformers, nnd therf never was before exhibited to the world an organization which so happily combines simplicity and strength?an in stmmentality so unpretending.and results so magnificent? so c lothed with moral grandeur; our object?the overthrow of pernicious habits, intimately interwoven with the cus toms and usages of society, and to which good fellowship, friendship, the genius of the poet, and a thousand associations, had given a sanction which it was almost presumtious to question; our agency ?christian self-denial, benevolence, and union. But with what success has not this simple agency met' It has exploded forever the soul-destroying error that the wine cup is necessary to social enjoyment; it has coverefi with eternal disgrace the drinking usages which not lon^ ago threatened tne very existence of society in this country, as one of morality nnd decency; it has saved millions of the present and future generation from the fate of the uiiiiiKaru; ami ir nu none lor ine poor uriiuuani nimsen what every known instrumentality of reform ha* before utterly failed to effect; it ha* rescued the poor drundard from degradation and ruin; it has brought him from hi* frenzied misery, Mnid the tomb*, and restored him to *ocfety, clothed, and in his right mind.?(Applause.) Such i* the cau*e in which we are. engaged, and to which w e invite the devotion of all the friends of the human race, and. a* my friend who last addressed you would say, I think that the active and efficient member of the temperance society ii in the fair w ay of fulfilling his "mission" to some purpose, and answering, by appropriate deed*, that impressive question which 1 said the spirit of the agr wa* now uttering in the ear* of all men. I take the broad position, that from this movement?this temperance reformation?this great moral revolution?all the development* in the moral, religious and political world, which promise so much good, derive a great proportion of their nutriment ami strength. Who, sir, will gainsay this?. The temperance society has invited a vast portion of the community in the advocacy and defence of certain great truths and principles. It has taught them the power and strentli not only of a comprehensive organization, but also the mighty influence which single individuals can exercise in a community. It ha* elevated the masses from the mire of low and grovelling animal enjoyment. It ha* given them a taste for intellectual pleasure*. It has conferred on them that nobility, the senl of who*e patent bear* the impre** of the Divinity itself. And the spirit thu* breathed into them?the habits of self denial thus created?the *elf-reMHict thu* conferred and cherished?have accomjmnied them into all their diversified pumuit*- have given a character to all that they say, and (call that they do. Kven in the political movements of the day, we observe evidences not to lie mistaken bv anybody, that that calm, sober, lignifled. earnest *pirit generated by that great movement which we are helping onward, i* at work. To make the "lightest attempt at a repetition ol an experiment ot carrying 011 un clrctioni'i'rinK campaign by pandering to the animal appetite of the )*ople, would In* fatal to anv l?olitic&l party?(Applause.) In thin great work <>r reform America has set a noble example to the world. And never should American citi rem forget that not only in a political sense, bnt in amoral sense, their ambition should t>e to stand before the world a* freemen. They of all men are set in thin ape for the defence and glory of liberty in it* largest acceptation Hew, on the soil of the new world, will dnuhtlc8s, if we mar it not, be first seen the dan ning* of that empire of peace and virtue, for which in all ages the (fond have sighed and prayed. Hut we must dip deep 111 order that we may be able to pile high. On the solid rock of morality, and of individual and national virtue, only, can we repose in permanent security the fabric of national greatness and renown. Let each of us then go on in this good tvork with enlarged notions of its character and dignity, and with a firm resolution to exhibit in all our social intercourse. and in the discharge, of all our duties as men and as citi rem, that spirit ol charity, of forboarance, ol self-denial, and of moral ntirily, which this cause is so calculated to excite. If all were dis|iosed to act in this spirit, we should soon behold the most encouraging to kens of the approach of that glorious era, represented in prophetic terms by one of the noblest of iioets " All crimes shall cease and ancient fraud shall fail, Returning justice raise aloft her scale, Peace o'er the world her olive wand extend And white-robed Innocence from lleaven deicend." (Loud and continued applause.)' After Mime excellent Ringing, and one or two eloquent speeches, the meeting adjourned. ) MiHMimirpi Klbction.?We have received very j few returns from this State.

As a token of respect to Mr. Adams, all the workshop* in the tv, o cities were closed yesterday, that the working, men might have a chance to hid him welcome. The silence oft he engines, the machinery, and the workmen's tools, was a mightier tribute to Mr. Adams than the roar of cannons, the strains of music, the pompous procession, or the eloquent address. Professor Bronson gives his third lecture this evening at the Apollo Rooms. Byron's "Waterloo," and Ilalleck's "Marco Bozzaris," are among the recitations announced. Nihlo's?New Circvs.?To-night Rockwell's equestrian troupe commence a short winter season. Great expenditure has been incurred in the alters tions in order to render it worthy the usual cIum of visiters to Niblo's. New dresses, new circle, new scenery, a most effective corps of equestrians and double orchestra, cannot fail to give the requisite effect for making the season a most glorious one for the talented and spirited proprietor and lessees. Paris and London have for centuries supported similar establishments, and the public of New York will not be behind the age in encouraging the present praiseworthy efforts to establish the Broadway Circus. Chatham Theatre.?On a visit to the Chatham last evening we hardly knew which to admire most, the excellent good order which prevailed throughout, with the good accommodations offered to tho audience, or the excelling neatness and precision with which every act was performed upon the stage. Last night Mr. Rice, who may bo truly and emphatically styled the "greatest niggcT of them all," took his leave and farewell in a good benefit. To-night the sterling and ever attractive play of the Lady of Lyonp, cast with the full strength of the excellent company, will be performed, with, also, the spectacle of the Pretty Girls of Stillburg, and two new dances by Miss Kallia.

A large number of witnesses were examined, who gave contradictory statements, but from the testimony ol Charles Henry Kenton, who was in company with Stanley, the deceased, at the time the alfray commenced, | we learn that several of those who had formerly l>een running with engine No. 37 commenced the atl'ray, by | saj ing that they could lick any inan who said ought against her members. A voting man named Lyuch then drew off and struck Peter Williams, w ho took a knife from his |>ocket and stabbed him in the arm.

The male white body was also found to be that of a jioor Irish laltorer, who had been interred in Potter'a Field, presuming that his ashes would there reat in safety, and the other two were colored men unknown to any body, but who no doubt were there buried from want of means to place them elsewhere.
