KARKR. No IN-wn. E NE i The Philadelphia Riots. Affairs in Philadelphia.?There now appears > to be an armed neutrality in Philadelphia ; the city ' is completely garrisoned und very quiet. [From Philadelphia Gaze to, May 13 J Tiii: City.?Our city present* the aspect of a garrisoned town. The military are seen at all points, quiet, orderly, l<nt apparent. The old Girard Banking House is ! 1 the Place D'Arras. Thera have been tew iustance* ofdis1 I turhances; none,that we hear ol. that seemed to belong to ! the proceeding* ol the "three days," but it is probable that the military lorca, and the military determination arrived at on Wodnesduy morning, have produced this tranquility. Whatever may have produced it, we hope it is to be permanent. The sight of soldiers on duty in part* ol our city is painful, aud one that we have no wish to see the people lamiliar with. They are now the ministers ef peace und order, and most faithlully do they execute their fuuetions ; but when long maintained in service, the citizen soldiers become the tegular army, mid that is tho mean* by which anarchy Is changed into tyranny. Thk Ki ivs?We saw, on Saturday, the ruin* in Kensington, the blackened, crumbled walla of the Church, of the School House, and of many, very many dwelling houses, that the passion* of men nad doomed to destruction. The heart sickens at such exhibitions, and inquires for the justice of man, that allowed ot such unlawful, unruly violence ; or the justice of Heaven, which seemed to sleep amid the wrong doings of the wicked, both when the murder* were committed and the property wasted. Wo learned nothing there to answer that inquiry, but, returning by the way ot 4th st, we went up and stood timid the smouldering ruins of St. Augustine's, and when we renewed our inquiry, our eye rested on the uppermost portion of the opposite wall, irom which the lire had peeled every particle of plastering, and licked off the decorative paint; nut, as if in defiance of the wrath of man, and the fury of the flames, there stood, in clear uninjured letters, the inscription?"The Lord Seeth." And wo turned away satisfied in out heart, and exclaiming, in quiet submission, "Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?" [Prom the Spirit of the Times, May 13.] TuoroHTs von thk People ?All was quiet in our city yesterday, it was a strange thing, however, to see the Military promenading our streets on the Sabhath, but (till stranger to feel that their presence was necessary to the maintenance of the public peace ! into all the churches, as the chiming bells pealed out their solemn tones, poured crowd after crowd of citizens to give thanks, perhaps, to the Deity for their safety. I.-.to alt the churches, we should lisve said, txeepting? the Roman Catholic. They stood desolate, silent and untenanted In obedience to the orders of the bishop they w ere not opened for public wor ship The solitary tread of the sentinel, or the clank of the musket, was the only sound that diaturbed their solitary repose. And this was a Sabbath picture of the "City of Brotherly LoveThis was a piature of the " Quaker" city ! Could Willinm IVnn ham riuen lmm hii ai'mvo and looked at such a scene ; could he have gazed on the bristling bayonets, that offended the quiet eve in almost every direction ; could he have been told that this j>om]> and panoply of wi r were necessary to secure the liberty ol religious opinion ; that here, on this very spot where he had planted the Christian banner, which he hud made the a<ylum of the persecuted for opinion's sake, and had peculiarly consecrated to Religious Freedom, could he have been told that here all this exhibition of military force was required simply to enable men to exercise one of the inalienable privileges of humanity, to worship Cod according to the dictates of their own consciences, what that great and good man would have said we leave the reader to imagine, lie could not have credited the evidence of his senses. He could not have believed his descendants so monstrously degenerated. He could not have dreamed lor a moment that the people of his own Ch ristian city would ever practice that higotted intolerance to escape from which he himself abandoned his country, his kindred and his home, and as an undying monument of his abhorrence ol which he founded the community in which we live. Yesterday morning, the' 1st Regiment City Volunteers, the Marines and Sailors of the Princeton, under Captain Stockton, and the Dauphin Guards, paraded and marched to the different Catholic churches in the city, 011 a tour oi observation, and on their return to Head (Quarters about noon, made an imposing demonstration in Chesnut street in the evening, at 0{ o'clock, the Sailors and Marines and the Frst State Troop, with Generals Cadwallader and Roumfort end Stall', paraded and marched from Headquarters on another tour of observation. Yesterday afternoon between one and two o'clock a Are bell in a western direction was rung, and several of the fire companies turned out. The alarm was a false one, and , the military and police remonstrated with the firemen and induced most ol them to return with their apparatus to their houses. About two o'clock, a drunken man named l<'ord, who was conducting himself in a seditious maunor at the corner of Filth and Chesnut streets, wa? arrested by Captain llennettof the watch. The Weecacoo Hose Carriage manned by rowdies, some of whom were said to be members of ihe Chesapeake Fire Company ot llaitimore, was passing down Filth streut at this > time, and Ford was rescued. He ran to the corner ol Fifth and Walnut, and seizing the tongue of the hose carriage, ' urged the rioters who had hold of the rope to puss a cordon oi soldiers composed of the City Guards, and Mechanic Rifles at the corner of Fifth and Prune streets. He w is again made prisoner by Capt. Bennett and taken to the Mayor's office under a guard of soldiers and locked up. The rioters, in attempting to break through the chain ol ' military were charged upon, their carriage captured, and they put to precipitate and helter--kelter flight with faces as white as sheets. None oi them would return to carry the carringe away, and it was brought to the police uthcu >i? il.hrmii, Hot, ...... ,.f ,U.. tizens Of Dock ward attached to the peace police ofthat ward, and deposited in the court oi the east wing of the Stato House ltow. The reserve at head quarters marched to this point, but . their services were not required. A committee of the Weccacoe Company waited upon the major general and made an explanation, signifying the determination of the Weccacoe to comply with all orders of the military, and to neither participate in, nor eountenunco any riotous proceedings. The marines, sailors, Dauphin Guards, and First City Troop have formed the reserve at head quarters. The First City Troop paraded at head quarters jesterday afternoon at A o'clock Yesterday, thousands of persons visited the burnt dis| trict in Kensington, nnil throughout the day the streets were lull of people. Gen. Iloumfort and stall', escorted by the First State Troop, arrived at head quarters at G o'clock, and rcportod everything quiet in Kensington and Spring Garden. There whs n rumor that a man hail ban shot by order of Gen. Iloumfort, in Kensington, but there was no truth in it The crew of the Princeton returned to the ship at the navy yard last night at nine o'clock. The surgeons request that incaseof any illness of the troops they may he sent for, as their services to the troops are gratis. In case of any indisposition, report must b? made at Head Quarters to insure attention The names of the surgeons are?Professor Homer, Surgeon-in-Chief; T C. Bunting, M. D , and Alex Hart, M.

The Major General tenders his cordial tbauka to the armed citizen guards of the different wants for the promptness and fidelity with which they have performed the duties assigned them. It is believed that the uniform volunteer corps of the Division hi e utlicient to prcservp order within lis bounds The Major General, then-lore, deems it unnecessary to require the citizen guards to parade every evening and remain under arms during the night, satisfied, that when their services ure required, they will la- cheerfully rendered.

Stnoay's Prockrihnos.?We took a stroll through the infected part of Kensington district yesterday, ami quietly contemplated thu vast destruction. No words can dor'cribe?no mind conceive the utter wreck and demolition of property which every where strikes the eye What was one week ago a tlouiishing and thickly inhal-ited neighborhood, is now laid waste?houses levelled to the ground? and women and children cast out upon the s'rneta, all the result of three davs war.

The devastation in the immediate neighboiliood of the market house is fery great. In s|>ot?, block* ol ground, cleared of every thing, are to bo seen ; on them, but a lew day* mice, stood houses, occupied by large though poor tsniilies. The fallen fragment* of chiniuuy* are occasionally preiented to the view, but other evidence* ol the riot are not visible. Again, we saw part* of frame building* standing, with roof* oft, and portion* lying covering the ruin* beneath. The naked wall* of St Michael'* church are there, nothing else --the wall* of the house of tlin priest are half d iwn, and the remainilrr?eem to bo tottering in the air? The fence that surrounded the church and house is all /one, and the grave yard is tramplad and defaced?but the tories allo.it of desecration of the graves, by digging into them and robbing the c.oftiii* of plate, are entirely false; so utterly Instituteof truth, that we wonder any person rould have been found weak enough to credit tham. The garden walks alongside and ?n front nftho church, within tint enclosure, look more like some deserted "common" fiau a cultivated lot. Ono would suppose the fostering >nd of man had not been near them for year*. The seminary, or nunnery, presents even a worseap p arance than the former, for'the front is entirely out, the t ick wnll* severed from the connecting wing, which held ii cm together, and the extreme bark appears ready to W YO NEW YORK.

The walks in front anil around it, are all <>r? trampled into a plain common, the trees broken otf closo feri to the ground, shrubbery torn, uprooted, oud the whole presenting an entire waste. tnti The streets in front of houses stormed ami gutted by hat the mob, are strewn with rrmnonts of furniture, papers, See. In front of Alderman Hugh Clark's house andottice, * ri in Fourth street, we noticed persons busily employed in wit hunting up relics of the devastation, selecting out official .. .. documents, and carrying them off as mementos of the occasion. About Corr's house, in Second stieet, boys were tut hunting for something to maik the devastation, but it ap- me peared that all had gone. Karly yesterday morning hundreds of citizens, from the >l" city and lower districts, who had not heen able previous- att ly to visit the scene, wero up there viewing the work of . destruction, and aliout 11 o'clock the stierU running north and south, particularly Second street, presented one ed solid phalanx of persons wcuding their way to the rioting (VI district. 0p The First State Troop, preceded by (funeral llonmfort, nfl rode through the district, dispersing mobs of persons ' where they had collected?companies of artillery were '"J" gunrding places threatened, aud others wi re lodged in H'1( houses in the vicinity. Two companies occupied the house wl ol Jfr. Oriflith, in Second street, near tho ground, to ho in ready in case of necessity. it. The strangest sight ol all, and one that strikes the eye 1 quicker than any other, is the great display of flags from by windows, door-ways, and roots ol houses. These, as wo fly stated in Friday's paper, are evidence that the owners or the occupants of the honses are friendly to the Native Ameri- /.at, cans. The hurry with which some of these flags wore sioi displayed Is evinced in the singularity of their make.? mei Some are composed of straight stripes of blue, white,and S red; others are the American flag?again, some are plain the pieces of white check, or striped white domestic, with sho pieces of red and blue, or both, stitched on them. That its' they should remain so long after the time, is astonishing; fide but the people iu that district arc not satisfied that the wo worst is over. '1 Many poor families whoso residences are burnt,are nov.- con occupying houses, the interior of which were destroyed; no remaining merely for shelter, there being no place lor in ] them to ston, except in the opon air. he i su m uihiiih u> |>ci iu1ii vuuiiiiucu ui uic >iuiuii; ui Ills the ruin* of St. Augustine's church all 'lay. The door tha waya have been cloaed up by rough boards, ao alao the rec gate waya, and the front of the grave yard, where the clal walla wi re torn down, which prevents people from endan- the goring their lives, by pusliiDg themselves in among the wh ruina and tailing walla. A matter, though small, which the has caused much comment, is worthy ot notice here. Dai Just over the semi-circls window, reor of where the altai he: tood, in gilt latter*, apparently untouched by even the wo smoke, can be seen the words Sot "THE LOUD 8EETH " cot Extracted from the book of Genesis. It is a matter of I much surprise that, amidst so much desti uctinii, that pro. res phttic line remains uninjured. 1 During the night o( Friday last, a train of shavings was ser discovered by the Peace Police, laid trom a side alley in wh Third street, alongside of a carpenter's shop, to a frame I building within a short distance of the Cadiolic Church pre of St. Philip de Neil, In Queen street, Southivark. The tul joist holes of the carpenter shop had been opened, and I combustibles placed in them, in order more readily to I c> catch fire. The object of placing the train is cosily to be iu : comprehended, but it was completely foiled. the Seven poor Irishmen, who had been cutting willows ass near an old powder mill, in Haverford township, and were ins passing through the city on Saturday morning, with their tioi "bills" or cutting instruments in their hands, on their Eel way home to Wilmington, were captured by a liody oi the spr Volunteer Peace Police, and curried to the Mayor's office, yoi The Mayor, en hearing their statement, us a matter of >h< course, discharged them. cia Wo stated, on Sutunlay. our belief that the cost to the we county for datnagws by the riots, apart from the expense the to the city and commonwealth lor (fuelling them, would to. be at least two hundred thousand dollars. We are assuted to that estimate was entirely too low. Ttio county commis- j sioners themselves estimate the damages at at least five go hundred thousand dollars, which, if cerrirt, it will bother till them to pny, us they i e without funds to meet for over Soi s .essments?the Pennsylvania llall, for instance, has not cai ii paid for, ulthough damages approaching fifty thou- int ullars havti been assessed and ordered to be pahL thi Im Pis 1 id < I?' 11> Is 1 is. hai [Correspondence of the Herald.) ^ 'i?-* in the City?Governor Porter?-RecentNew,i \ it Wmhington?General Can?Commodore St< art, fyc wl l>iiiLAt>Ki.piiiA, May 11, 1^14. Pa Otlce more the blessings of peace have been restored to us, anil the ooltlirrs will on Moilday be re- up lievedfroin duty, and investigations into the origin of these riots will then ensue. It is believed that Jic the Irish Protestants have shared latgely in the ' business. Public feeling is against the mayor and rei sheriff both, deeming them highly culpable in permuting Colonel Jack and the natives to proceed in the threatening manner they did to the scene ol tin their previous conflicts. Jack is an unfortunate ^ devil?for lie seldom accomplishes anything good, and when he does, the world will not give htm credit. 1 le has been trying for years to trim bis po- a . litical car for a journey to Washington, but never (L has been able to get in the right sort of ballast, al- ne though he*is an amiable man and an excellent in father. S The riots have caused almost a total auspension [q of business, particularly in insurance, real estate, ; and stocks, as well as political matters. Governor t\v Porter, who is still in town, has won the favor of ] all parties by his promptness in coming to the city to with additional troops for its protection. lie has th? been visited hy crowds. But one of the most singular revelations attending his visit is, that he is about to declare his preference for Commodore n? Stewart for the next Presidency, believing him to jn( be the only man who cnn carry Pennsylvania ngninstMr. Clay, lie suys that the interior people en1 are out and out for the annexation of Texas: and we the tone and decision of Stewart's letter has deter- g? mined them, while thelong argumentative and am- tl,< higuous letters of Van'Ruren and Clay have killed . them both. "Buck'' (Buchanan) says the Cover- n. nor, "has once withdrawn front the contest, and tin should he now volunteer his opinion in favor of an- i, r ilex a lion, it will look too much like an aim at the of nomination, and the |wople will rebuke him for it." 01 A friend, who reached here this morning from r?" Washington, high in the confidence of the party, lh* states that the Indiana delegation are urging Gen. . J Cars upon the consideration of the Congressional ( caucus, because he can carry several of the north- tj,,. em and western States; hut the Louisiana, Missis- i sippi, Alabama, North and South Carolina, and mi part of the Virginia delegations, are openly opposed an? to him, on the ground of his old federal notions, ^ and his attempted alliance with the whigs, having once been nominated by the Courier and Knquirer _ and other whig papers?but the wings declined 0* having anything to do with him. Gen. Cass has long since been regarded as a dangerous man for *<i the democratic party to trust with the chief magis- tar tracy, because he lias ever shunned responsibility, wa having refuted, or rather begged oil, from sustain- [ka ing Gen. Jackson in the war with the hank, and having left the War Deportment with an immeme * number of undecided cases through fear of respon- f|" sibility. Then they allege that the Florida war, nt. which originated while he was at tlie head of that u.0 oflice, would kill him at once ; besides these facts, unl | winch speak loud against him, he has nothing in kin his character to excite enthusiasm; hikI that, in- ace deed, is what all the democratic candidates lack, unless it be "Old Ironsides." Uy the way, there m ': was to have beep a meeting here this week of the ?". friends of the "Oanie Old Cock," as the shipnias- gn.i ters call hint, and they were to have the "Conslitu- h. tion," in miniature, rigged up, drawn by twenty wit horses, with transparencies of the great tight he- pre tween her and the two Hritish frigates, and his ren other engagements; hut I have heard nothing of it ,u" for two days part, probably on account of the riots. I",r Gov. McDufhe, Calhoun, Senator Lewis, and neve- ^ ral other leading men of the South, are openly in m,.( favor of him?hut I don't believe they can throw Van Mnren overboard. ago Tell the "Natives" of your great depot of enter- bet* prize and wealth, that we are determined to tight feri our own buttles in our ow n way ; and that we have ,Ril now lite orders of our "constitutional commander f"'?" in-chiaC to shoot down rioters, and tliHt therefore {! we shall not need theirservices.

V RK E [ORJN'ING, MAY 14, 1844. Metbodlst Eplicopal Conference. bi Die cbatr was occupied during yesterday's sea- ^ n, by Bishop Soule. The routine business was t disposed of, consisting of the reception of ndisses, memorials and petitions front annual Colt- II ences, reports from committees, memorials front ^ lividuals, appeals, Ac. After the Conference tit 1 been some time engaged tit tins duty, the 'sident proceeded to lay before it a document 0j ich he held in his hnrwl. which was n cnnimu- iw. ;ation troin the President of the African Insti- JO ion of Paris, appointing him (Bishop Soule) u raber. lie felt that it might he an honor to |i( nself to he a member of a society which had ained the sanction of some of the crowned heads Eurojie, and which contained many distinguish- w names, Catholic hh well as Protestant. bat he ct t desirous to introduce the matter to his brethren Ja the Conference to obtain their advice, us he did H't t feel himself at liberty to act without their ansel. lie would ask leave that the Serretaiy n, mid read a translation of the original in French, oj licit accompanied it, and which would be placed *> their hands to take what aciiou tlu-y chose upon * o] Phe flr.i-BETASr read the document, which am ,-igned tho Prince de Rehau, President to tlic Inititution, ami polite Antoine, Secretory. It set forth the objoctJ of Society, which were?the colonization ami wvangclj- " ion of Africa, through the instrumentality of miliary labor, ami reapectfuliy tendered to Bishop So tile J".1 nbership in tho association*. ? ome members remarked that it should he reiorred to Committee on Kpiscopacy?some thut Conference , uld at once decide upon it?others were ol opinion that hould "ust with the Bishop himself, in w hom lull con- ''J noe was reposed by the Conference, that his conduct ' * uld be the w uest and moat discreet iu the matter, 'he President again arose to explain, lie was quite re- , iciled to whatevercourse they should take, us ho had 01 choico of his own. lie had, however, a little delicacy iresenting the document, as it might seem to some that had been seeking foreign alliunces, when he was on late Kuru peon tour, lie only wished to assure them tthe very lust intimation he had of the matter, was the fa option of the document while ho was on his Inst oHi- y1 1 tour, and knew nothing of how his name came before Krench institution The Constitution ot tho Society ich accompanied tho document, contained a long list ol "I kings ana queens and gieat men, including that of 01 niel Webster, who were enrolled in the Society ; and felt it due to mention that a connection with the Society y uld obtain the means of knowing the proceedings of the lo siety in relation to missionary labour in Africa, which ild not fail to he of service and value liure. " )r. Cartas thought thut the best w ay would be to let it t With the bishop himself, and moved to that ellcct. '' dessrs. Kahi.t, Smifii, and some others, made some ob vations in reference to the motion, in the course oi ich "S )r. Capsrs assured the Conference that in making his w qiosal, he had no wish to propose auything disrespectto the Bishop. " Imior Soils ?Oh, not at all, sir; I am aware of that. J,f Dnlider myself sustaining a very responsible position ,a relation to this body, as Bishop of the M. hi. Church ol i United States, and as a Methodist preacher regularly I" ociuted. 1 do not hold myself at liberty in the present u( tauce to enter into, or become a member of any ussocia- K' n out ol the church?neither of Free .Masons, or Odd u< Hows, or any of thuse associations.

' I'he wholo matter was referred to the Committee on liscopacy. \ memorial was presented by the Ohio Conference remmending the General Conference to take measures ' the establishment of a " Home Colonisation Society," jj lose objects should he to procure a territory in some rt of the United States, to serve as a home for all nc- 0 aes who should be set free, and to use every means they old to procure the emancipation of negroes by waiting on slaveholders; to devise Hie best means ol procuring : emancipation, to raise funds lor the purchase ol a terary, and apply the surplus to the liberation of slaves, ' ,4c. Relerred to the Committee on Slavery. 81 Mr. presented an address from Indiana on slavery, on which he would have refrained from making any " narks, were it not tor certain ungracious remarks " iioh? had been made, that that anti-slavery address had en got up by preachers. That was nut the case, for it 1 is well known that their body is against all action on 9 slavery question, although there was an increasing '. ding on the subject spreading amongst- them, and 1 earlier* did not interfere in such petitions on slavery. Mr. MiTi'iiri.L, of the Hock Itiver delegation, presented etition to the < Conference praying that they should raise '' ollcction among themselves lor the purpose of building " ~hupel ut Milwaukio, in the territory of Wisconsin. r anghter) Mr M. spoke at some length, stating tho c ed and urgent demand the brethren of Milwawkio stood -the importance of the locality?the strong opposition r the part of papists, ami a scarcity of money among the 8 thfiil. for all which reasons they appealed confidently 0 the General Conference for aid. Many members objected to the application, and one or ? 0 amendments were moved, when Mr. MiTCiiri.i.observed that If members wero unwilling contribute, they should say so with cuudor and put n 9 proposal down with a direct vote, and fairly and honly ; not by proposing riders to the resolution proposed. \ member snbmlited ihat, as the duty then before the . nference w is of a speeilic nature, different from the " 'rsoriel in <|iiestion, which was an application to their ? lividUHl liberality, the motion was not in order. !!
