Important Commercial Negotiations?Tint Convention bictwekn the UNITED STATES and THE German Union ?We have received by the IuhI steamer from Liverpool, n variety ot very important information connected with the recent negotiations conducted by Mr. Wln-aton on the part ot this country, and the German Union; and also interesting intelligence respecting the movements and sensation subsequent on the publication of the treaty in France and England. It seems that this new treaty, so successfully negotiated under the direction of the late Mr. Upshur, by which a very important reduction on the article of tobacco has i been agreed to by a numerous portion of the Ger- | man nation, has fallen like a thunderbolt on the < other commercial interests of Europe, particularly of France and Emrlund. By the recent steamer, Mr. Appleton, the hearer of despatches from Mr. Everett, arrived, and lias gone to Washington; and we are informed by our privute correspondent in London, that a very important correspondence lias taken place in relation to a commercial treaty between this country and England, and that Lord Aberdeen has been compelled, under the action of public opinion in England, to make some movements in this matter, and particularly since the intelligence of the success of Mr. Wheaton was received. A meeting of the Hoard of Trade had been held on the subject?and a deputation had waited oil the British minister for the purpose of making collie inquiry into the necessity and policy of reducing the duties on American tobucco. It was also supposed that in the introduction of the budget, which was to make its appearance on the 29th ult., some reference would be made to this subject, and that we shall have by the next steamer, the Britannia, which snils on the 4th inst., some very important commercial intelligence from England. It appears also that the same sensation had been produced in Paris amongst the commercial circlet. Indeed both France and England seem to have been aroused from a deep sleep by the successful negotiations of'Mr. Wheaton with the Customs Union ol Germany, and it cannot be doubted that in a very short jieriod we shall see a great revolution commencing in the commercial intercourse of Europe and America. Movements of the same nature are perceptible in Holland, Belgium and other poitions of the great Germanic nation, not embraced in the recent treaty. It is said that the last steamer brought agents from the French and British governments, charged with the duty of making important inquiries in relation to this matter, and that they have proceeded to Washington. All these movements, and particularly the sensation in England, indicate the success which has attended the negotiations of Mr. Wheaton, conducted under the skilful and statesmanlike instruc nv?iit> ui me laic mi. upsnur, aim participated in l)> the President. They who ure unacquainted with the difficulties of Mr. Wheaton's position?cannot estimate the degree of skill, judgment, and toil neces sary in the management of such negotiations.? livery little prince and petty potentate has a voice in the Union, and the voices or views of many of them had to be overcome by good sense, courtesy, and tact of 110 mdinary kind. Mr. Mark, the bearer of the final instructions from this country, and who has just returned from Germany, by the last steamer, with despatches, is also entitled to great credit, notwithstanding all 1 that has been said against him in the German, ! English hiuI American newspapers under the in- 1 luence of British interests. But to Mr. Wheaton 1 jelongs the chief merit of conducting to a fortunate and successful issue a movement which ttius' -I be followed by the most important and advantage ous results as respects the commercial policy of ( Europe towards the United States, and which u few months will more fully develope. The New City Government.?In a few days 'he new city government will be organized, and a ! new party, which has been generuted within the 1 Inst few years by the corruption of the two old par- f ties having the management of the city affairs, will | take the new reins of power, and give us a touch of h their quality. During the last few days, the new Mayor, and Aldermen, and Assistants, have been very busy, in an informal and unofficial way, in c acquiring some information relative to their new , duties; they have created some noise in regard to s the reforms which culled them into existence, . which they mean to carry into effect as soon after < their inauguration as possible. They have had a | number of meetings amongst themselves, and have , examined some of the public accounts and conver- . sed witti the old officers, and we believe have , come to some definite view relative to some ol ( their new duties. I We understand that most of the present office , holders have been so corrupted by the present man- , ageinent of the city aflairs, that they will have to be removed, and new and clean men appointed to H replace them. During the last ten years, the cor- t ruptions of both parties have been so great as to t corrupt every man who had connection with the [ city government it nan ueen discovered tliut ilie p loss, waste and extravagance?the stealings and (J pickings, and shocking corruptions encouraged l?y \ both parlies?would amount during that period to f two or four million of dollars?a sum of money t thrown away that would almost pay half the debt t incurred by the introduction of the Croton water f into this city, ft has also been discovered that the e officials in the Alms House Hospital have been ? living in the greatest extravagance. The finest t wines have been used, and the richest productions, | lobsters, salmon, strawberries, green peas, and the t most costly luxuries, purchased, not for the pur- , pose of feeding the sick, the hall, and the blind, a but to fat and gorge the plunderers that have been a placed there. t In fact, the developemenis which the first few ( months will make under the new party will astound 0 the public. The new party will have much to do in 0 order to he able to find their way and carry out the ? plan of reform which they contemplate. It is esti- rt mated, however, that they will he able to reduce n 'he present enormous annual tax 8200,000, ami it k is probable, that in trying the work ot economy, they will he able by the next year to reduce equal |e to IihII of that again We hope and trust they may succeed in their laudable endeavors to reduce the public expenditure, and give a sample thai will rle- ,, vate them in public favor, and such as will have V| an effect on the whole country.

Tug WiKorr CoHKKscoNDgacK ?We are preparing us last as we can, the lust hatch of the Wikofi correspondence, which will, we think, "sew up" that insignificant individual completely, shut him up, und close his career in this country, and tit him to wear |>etticoat8 in a nunnery for the re maining term of his "natural" life. The contro versy has been contemptible?most contemptible. But we were obliged to enter into it?we were torced into it in consequence of the atrocious conduct of the newsoawi ureas of this citv. and many of the paper* throughout the country, endeavoring out of the fabrications and falsehoods of this miserable creature, to impugn the honor and disinterestedness of our conduct towards Fanny Glssler whilst in this country. llefore we publish the remainder of the letters, we must notice a small paragraph which Wikofl has published iuhis " Pig and Whistle," and which evidently appears to be the donkey's last kick. Here it is: ? We learn with greut satisfaction that the long looked tor opportunity Iihk et length presented itself, when law is to decide whether the indecent scurrility of the Herald is to bo allowed illimitable swny. .Mr. W ikulf, we hear, has commenced legal proceedings against Bennett, of the Herald, lor the unpardonable outrages in his sheet of Monday It seems thut Bennett, grown desperate ol doing injury to .Mr Wikolf by any of the means, however base, lie ha? hitheito employed, lias dared to resort to the foul crime of interpolating lubricated sentences into the published letters ol Mr Wikolf which lie never wrote, accusing him of seekiug to persuade Bennett to commit a lorgery ; and further, altering and introducing other words, so as to make Mr Wikolf appear guilty of falsehood The audacious wickedness of Bennett can no longer he doubted by any impartial man ; and however extravagant the abuse he has already heaped on Mr. Wikolf, tins monstrous uttempt to defame his character must bo in dignantly denounced in every direction. It is time thut the outraged law should inter|K>se its shield against the reckless malignity of this unprincipled man. ?\ow in order to exmoit tne fun neptn or mm poor wretch's impudence, folly and meanness, us displayed in litis paragraph, we again publish the letter in question. Here it is verbatim ct literatim, italics and all : Aitor Hotel, August 16, 1311. Dear BENNETT : Wo are ull oil lo morrow morning for Philadelphia, to dgn papers Jiuul do liusiness in the greatest possible hurry; ihut we may get oil'by Saturday if possible?that, as you tay, will depend on "the weather." 1 will let you know is I learn more?but don't be astonished if I come in to hid you good-bye on Saturday next. Best respects to Mrs. Bennett. ' Yours, truly, ft! VVIKOKY. Stout gave me full authority to write u "Cord" In contradiction of the infumouH story in the "Sun"? saying, that called on by you, he ielt it necessary to come forward in vindication of the wounded feelings of Mile. Klssler, but not in defence of himself, as he considered it unneceslary from the source ne was attacked. Write thin "Card" tor me, Bennett, with Stout's name attached, for be gave me full authority to doit?and you can do it infinitely letter than I ; hold me responsible. It will he a great favor :o myself and Klssler, and an advantage to Stout. Yours again, H. W. [To this letter we appended, in the body of it, the editorial remark, thus, "that is to say, forge Stout's lame, dear Bennett, it will oblige us;"] and this is he ground tin which the creature says he has comnenced legal proceedings against us! Perfectly right! Come on ! We are quite prepared to meet fou in any court and to show you up from top to lottom, by the help of your own correspondence, o be one of the most consummate scoundrels hat ever disgraced humanity, that is to say, is far as your little talents can go. We shall prove 'very one of these letters in your own hand wning, to be published without any alteration, addiion, or subtraction whatever. We shall prove by pour own letter, that you requested us to write a ard in the name ol Mr. Stout, and to append Mr. Stout's name to it, and this we will gladly place ?efore a jury ol the country, to say whether or not, f we had yielded to the request, we would not rave been guilty of forgery. So, then, come on is fast as you please. We will then finish the Jonkey?pepper and salt him?and pickle him? ind preserve him for all future time?and let him lien be sent lo the American Museum, "at an sncrmous expense," to use Barnum's language, so iliat he may he an exhibition for the warning, initruction and edification of all donkeysdiereafter. The last batch of this correspondence, including the presents fanny Elssler made to us, with the accompanying note, expressive of the generous motives and leelings which prompted her to offer them?also the love quarrel between Fanny and Wikoff?and their finale and svparation in London ? with Wikoff's prose monody on the same, in to-morrow's paper, or next day's nt farthest. Oi.k Bull in thk Sotrrn ?We perceive thai Ole Bull, the great maestro of the age on the violin, has been making a great sensation in the South. The Southern Chronicle, published at Columbia, South Carolina, comes out with the following article, giving an account of Ole Bull concerts in that city:? Ol* Bri.i.?This distinguished violinist paid Columbia a visit this week, and entertained our citizens with two Concerts. W'? had formed high expectations from public report, of this gentleman's musical anilities, but the reality far tianscended them All the other musical stars who have visited our country sink iuto obscurity under the splendor of this snn. The violin in his hands almost becomes a living being?and. certainly, if breathing consti;ntes life, he makes it breathe, and that with exquisite harooriy. Mr. Bull very happily udds to his reputation as a nusician, the character of a gentleman. Ole Bull proceeded gradually northward, and has uhi reached Baltimore. In the meantime we perceive in the Aine paper another very curious nrti:le, which amusingly brings in Fanny Elssler? fVikotl?"black mail," and we don't know what slse besides in awkward conjunction. Here is the laragraph:? Suit.?A cast-off valet of Kanny Klssler, named iVikotl', has commenced a libel suit against Bennett of the Mew York Herald The damages are said to he laid at 130 000! Query -If such a \ agabond's character is worth did 000. what is a decent man's worth I Jtjrropot?We notice that Bennett haa been accused of evying " black mail" upon Ole Bull, among others We uive it from the great musician himself, that the charge is also, and that, on the contrary, he had been generously ii,I gratuitously sustained by the Kditor of the Herald. * \ When this distinguished musician arrived in thi* ( inuntry lust year, lie brought us letters of introduction from Germany, wri;ten by Fannv Klasler herlelf,recommending him in the most cordial manner (i our particular attention. The great talents of Die Hull?his excellent private character, would iiave secured him at once the support of such a jour rial hh the JVnc York lierahl, f?r we take especial iride in supporting every artist of eminence and ivorth from any part of the world. But in addition o all that lie was recommended particularly hy 'tinny Ellsler, and that was not without its weight vith us, notwithstanding all that has been said to he contrary by that miserable vagabond?Wikoff. During the short career of Ole Hull in this city ind neighborhood laHt tall, we did no more for him han for any other distinguished artist. But cerainly we never thought of levying black mail upon dm, as he very properly certifies. Yet he did not >ass through this city without some singular mci'ents?" black mail" incidents, if you please. Vlnlst he was at the Astor House, a vagabond of a ellow, who passed himself off at several hotels as icing the editor of the New York Herald, whilst he " rascal Bennett," as fie used to call me, was >nly the proprietor, presented himself to this talent d and generous artist, and excited his sensibilities o much that he put his hand in his pocket and gave he fellow $100. The chap, then?who we need lardly say was never connected with the Herald? old Ole Hull that his generosity had made him feel nost kindly towards him, and as a proof of it, he idded, " Mr. Ole Bull, 1 pray you to avoid that coundrel, Bennett?he is the greatest scoundrel in Ins country, and will abuse you at the first chanre." )|e Bull was thunderstruck?" Why, dat is very dd !" and so it was. Hut this is only a specimen f the manner in which respectable artists and hooruble editors are imposed upon by a set of tniserble Hearii|*?, who go about pretending to be con topers, and all sorts of people in their power. < Just before Ole Bull's departure to the South, we 1 arned these fads to our great astonishment and ' irprue And it is out of such stufl as this that our nserable contemporaries?the broken down rdi- ' >rs, such as Noah and others?pick up such ? igahonds as VVikofl, to traduce and defame our ' putation before the country. i 1'rom tiik Sot ru ?

The peace of the city has again been broken,and the outrage has heen signalized hy loss of life. A meeting of citizens, <inietly convened to exprestheir political oniuious, bus heen broken up by lawless rioters, and property wantonly destroyed. The circumstances of thin outrageous occurrence are briefly these :?A public meeting of tlie advocates ot the Native American principles was culled yesterday afternoon, at four o'clock, to assemble on the vacant lot at tile corner of Master and Second streets,but belore the meeting had been well organized a storm arose, and it was resolved to adjourn to the shelter of the market house near by, at the corner of Master and Cadwullader streets. When the third speaker arose to address the meeting, ? man standing at ttie outside of thecrowd was heatd to say to another, standing next to him, (both ol whom are represented to us as being Irishmen,) "Now let's make a noise, so that he won't be heard " They forthwith created a noise, and were remonstrated with by some of the bystanders, who requested them to let the proceedings of the meeting go on in peace. They would not cease their clamor, und were finally compelled to do so, in consequence of receiving a severe Hogging. Thi? fight caused a little excitement, which was raised to an intense degree, in consequence of several shots being tired from tlie upper windows of the Utberilia hose house, in Cudwaluder street, (rooting the market house. Uy this volley several wounds were indicted, and the Native Americans gathered at the meeting becoming highly exasperated, and the Irishmen having gathered into a mob, they made an attack upon them. A number ol shots were fired from the crowd of Irishmen, but they were finally compelled to llee. The Native Americans pursued them, and several of the fugitives, finding themselves hotly pressed, datted into houses and up alleys, in order to escape. Several of the houses into which they were seen to enltr, were attacked, and the doors and windows of two fniniM It(ttim??in nnrlwnliuHpr street, mid one in the .same street, above Master street, were battered in with stones. On Muster street, near Germantown roud, the fronts of two houses were also much battered, and windows riddled with stones On Germantown road, the dwelling house of a widow, named Mrs. Brudy, was forcibly broken into, the windows and shutters shuttered, and the furuituie broken up. The attack upon Iter house was made because one ol tlie fugitives had been seen to tun up the alley adjoining The windows in the tipper story of the Hiliernia hose house were also shattered, and Master street, between Gernmiitown road andCadwallader street, was literally strewed with broken bricks and stones. Finally, the Irishmen rallied, and beat off the Native Americans, and there the contest ended ior the time. The worst result of this disgraceful contest is seen in the loss of life. From the beginning of the affray the shots were frequent, and the following persons were killed or wounded : George Shifler, almost instantly killed ; Joseph Cox, dangerously wounded in the groin ; Lee, wounded in the hip; Charles Vanstavoren,shot in three placeH and dungerously wounded ; Patrick Fisher, shot in the forehead?not dungerously wounded ; Adam Looser, shot in the arm. Shifler lived only a few minutes, the ball, we understand, having passed through his head. The excitement created in Last Kensington by the occurrence was intense. People were gathered at every corner, listening to or repeating the hundred vague rumors which were floating about. Sherifl McMichael. was early upon the ground, and we learn adopted active measures to prevent further violence. The above account was gathered from vatious sources, and in the midst ol the excitement which prevailed. It may contain errors, but care has been had to obtain the truth concerning what occurred, and to state it when obtained. Midnight.?Further Particulars?Two Men Killed.?I luring the evening, great crowds of people were gathered in the neighborhood of the scene of violence in the afternoon, and about 10 o'clock an n'tack was made upon u dwelling house on Second street just above Franklin. The doors and windows were beaten in, and the furniture of the lower story broken up and much of it thrown into the street. The cause of this attack, it was said, was in consequence of a gun having been fired from the building during the afternoon. Another house above this in the same row was also injured in consequence of stones having been thrown lit it A cry was then raised of, "go to the Nunnery," and a crowd proceeded up Second street to Master, at the corner of which is n Roman Catholic school house. A bonfire was kindled at one corner of the street and the fence of the school house set on firepaboui this time, when the crowd had faltered in trout of the school house, a volley ol musketry was fired from the house opposite, and when the crowd had parted it was discovered that several were wounded ; one young man named J. A Wright whs taken up dead, a bullet having pierced Ins left breast just above his heart. Another young man named Ramsey, living on Third street above Brown, was shot in the upper part of the left lung with a bullet, and when we left was expiring. We were also told that two other men were seriously wounded. The Native Americans then retreated, and up to twelve o'clock [midnight] ullairs remained quiet. She rift' McMichael was upon the ground during the evening, and shortly before nightfall made a call upon the military for aid, but as they had tome fim#? hiiipp rMunlvcri rinf fn rlnfv in pugpw ni riots unless the Legislature mud** an appropriation lor their pay during the time they were so engaged, which has not yet been done, they were not willing to enter upon their duty A meeting, however, is called to-day, to take measuies to ensure a lull turn out of the military force. The Sheriff, accompanied by Gen. Cacfwalader, restrained the mob several times during the night from making attacks which were contemplated. The excitement is greatly increased, and it is hardly possible to say where this terrible outbreak will end. Meannkss of thk Nkw York Press.?Yesterday every paper published in this city, copied the foreign news by (he Hibernia from the Extra Herald? yet not one oi them gave us the customary credit for our enterprise in running uu express all the wuy Irom Boston.

This small decliue lias not destroyed the confidence of the brokers in n farther advance. The money market is evidently improving. Within u few days past the rate of interest has fallen, and there appears to be more capital in Wall street seeking employment. This can be partly be attributed to the position ol the banks and the return of large.amounts of specie to the city from the west. It must be expected thnt the banks of this city will, for about six or eight weeks, expand their movements; after that,a contraction will, undoubted' ly commence, as a preparation for the quarterly return for August.

A few brokers may become involved in debt, by the tips and downs, but none of them ' can lose any thing, for they have nothing to lose ; anil v then, again, speculations of this nature do not derange the laws of trade, or create an expausiou of prices or credits. The banks run the risk of losses. They in fact are the operators iu stocks, and use the brokers as agents Stock sjieculations are very necessary evils : they act us safety valves to the commercial community, and give un opportunity for snaculatinir ireniuses to let oil the team without going in to any article of commerce.

The following letter wo received by the Hibernia.? The repudiating Stutes of this Union must show a disposition to do something for themselves before they can expect those who have so liberally loaned them, to add to the immense amounts sunk in our public works by additional lavors. London, April 18th, 1844JE Diar Sir , You and your numerous readers doubtless will be glad to peruse the report of Governor Davis and Captain Swift upon the Illinois and Michigan canal. It is very lengthy and dwells much upon details, that may not be very interesting to the general reader. All those, however, who feel any interest in Illinois or the western trade will read the report with interest. The bondholders here have generally been well satisfied with it, and all seem now to admit the importance of the canal, and the abundance of the security, und yet no one feels interest CIIUIIKII JII ^uiciii-au ouuiir W ??? ?V ? " .? the proposed arrangement into effect. All hive ceased to hope for any judicious legislation in relation to the subject of thu state debts, and they say that the less they have to do with thu indebted States the better. They con-'ider it useless to make any further advances unless there is some dis)>osition manifested to pay by the States themselves. This is extremely unfortunnte for us at this time, lor if there had been a ready aid lent to Illinois in this emergency, it would have gone far towards awakening a proper spirit among the people geneially. It would have been a strong nppi al to their gratitude thut they could not have resisted. Though we may now succeed, still the great delay and extreme caution go to show that all confidence in the integiity and honor of our people is destroyed, and thut whatever is done, is solely U|ion the taugible security, and not with any relience upon the action of the State It perhaps was useless to expect anything more, but still a generous confidence would have met its reward, I think, in the prompt and efficient action of the State. There has been an attempt made to give this whole affair an improper direction, one not warranted, and one that may do it serious injury, and all this too by those who should have aimed only at doing a great and public good. They doubtless fancy that their extreme cleverness and cute shrewdness enables them to remain concealed, without exciting suspicion as to their real motives. But I can assure them their whole scheme is fully understood. and before they shall he allowed to carry it into effect thu canal shall remain in its unfinished state Illinois is poor and unfortunate, but she aliu.I never become a victim to the wily schemes of sordid and designing men, let their fate be what it may. The amount required for commencing the canal Is not yet subscribed?my efforts are now directed with a view to obtain the required subscription. If every American citizen could be placed in as humiliating ciicunwtances as I have been, while urging the interest of a sovereign State, by being told that all confidence in my country was lost, they would never cease their exertions until every dollar ot their debts were paid, an.I until the name of their country was placed beyond reproach. Let us, for heaven's sake, get out of this degrading position, and once more stand proudly pre-eminent, and independent, and no longer remain where we are, scouted and contemned by every rank and age. Truly yours, MICHAEL RYAN, We give Mr. Ryan's letter at length, as it conveys a lesson that we hope will sink deep into the hearts of all the citizens of thn repudiating and non-interest paying States in the Union. The same mortification experienced by Mr. Ryan has been experienced by others. The State | of Illinois has made great efforts to make such arrnnge! mcnts with her creditors as will secure them their dei mand, and enable the State to complete her half finished : works of internal improvement. Her commissioners did not succeed in accomplishing the object on their first vi sit to London, and returned. The bondholder* in Europe, not feeling satisfied with the Commissioner'* report, appointe 1 an agent and engineer to examine the property oifared an security for their advances. Their report wa* taken out by Mr. Jlyan, one of the first Commissioners, and hi* success is given in hi* own language. Those interested in the loan required, on this side, intend to send out Mr. Oakley, also one of the first Commissioners, to aid Mr. Hyan in hi* difficult negotiations. Confidence in American stock* is at a very low point throughout Eu rope. This destroys all negotiations. The Illinois Com. missioncrs went to Europe to obtain n loan sufficiently large to enable the State to finish her public works. The Commissioner* pledged tho State for a tax amounting to -100,000 dollars per annum. Upon these conditions the amount was promised. The Commissioner* returned, satisfied themselves that the tax could not be raised. One of them then went to Europe again, to open new negotiations, in which he has signally failed. Tho report made by the agent and engineer has not proved as satisfactory as anticipated.
