NEW' YORK HERALD. ,l?w York., Friday, UcU>??er 4, ld*t, The Karopeim Xewi. Th4 Ciledonia is now in her fifteenth day.? Her news, of course, ought to be here. An Extra Herald as aeon m it arrives. l.NTE RE9TIN (J ScENnB IN THK HlSTORY OF THE United States?We give to-day on the first page olour paper several highly interesting extracts from *' Frost's Pictorial History ol the United States"? a work, which, from its graphic and attractive style, extensive research, general accuracy, and elegant illustrations, has already become extremely popular. We present these specimens ol the en gravings, illustrative of scenes of great interest in the colonial and revolutionary history ol ihe coun try. Prospects on tho Rublcwt? We are now almost on the brink oi the rubicoft In relation to the next Presidency. Only five or six Sute election* take place within the next fortnight, and in lees than five weeks the final btru^gle will be over, and either Mr. ('lay or Mr Polk elected President for the next four years. Any person who has an ounce of common sense, can easily estimate the excitement which prevails at this critical moment amongst the ]>oliticiuns of both parties, numbeiing probably about two hun dred and fifty thousand throughout the country, and every one of whom expects an office ol some kind or other when the issue is determined. It ia curious to watch the varied manifestations of the extreme sensibility which characterizes those po liticians on both sides?to note with what avidity they seize upon any indication of hope?to observe the fierceness and malignity with which they assail any person or nnything which bodes injury to ihat cause which has enlisted iheirdisinterested devotion. When, for instance, we ourselves hap pened to state a series of facta, deducing therefrom ar vival of hope for the whig party, immediately the locofocos who read our journal began their de nunciations and shouted aloud, "bought by British gold !"?"sold at last!"?"gone for the devil and Henry Clay!" On the other hand, when the dic tates of truth compelled us to exhibit, at full length, the follies si the whig leaders and the dan ger which their mismanagement threatened their party and the cause of Mr. Clay, immediately they cried out, "bought by the locofocos!" ? "sold body and gizzard!"?"the Herald in the hands of the locotoco committee!"?'sold to the Dutch!"?"death and damnation, what is the meaning of all this"?" The sensibilities of both these classed of politicians, opposed as they are to each other, but in this matter quite agreed, arises from the fact that they are all office-seekers, office-beggars, expecting to receive their pay after the election. They are small in numbers com pared with the great mass of honesty belonging to both parties, also to that great third party called "the neutrals" Whigs?locofocos?neutrals?and all who do not expect to reap any personal benefit from the result of the election, but only hope to ob tain the means of good government by electing the man of their choice, are perfectly satisfied when we tell them the truth, and nothing but the truth, to the best of our knowledge and belief. Now this is what we always do. In obedience to those principles of perfect im partiality and perfect adherence to truth, so lar as it is possible for humanity to be perfect in its adhe rence to these godlike virtues, we told the whigs, immediately after the Maine election, that they j had mismanaged their cause during the summer? j that their mass meetings had turned out badly? that their orators had mistaken their position?aud that such men as Webster, Seward, and others, perambulating the country and making such a great noise about Texas and annexation and slavery, in order to catch a few abolition votes, were going to do Mr. Clay more injury even in the Norih than could be repaired by months of wise and judicious effort, whilst in the South it w?uld do him incalculable injury. When we told these truths, timorously and honestly, these selfish, silly and ridiculous wings raised a terrible cry against the Herald?that it was bought by the loco focos. But look at Mr. Clay's own letter, and see if he does not entertain the same opinion of that policy that we do. Read in his "confidential" letter to Cassius Marplot Clay, how closely Mr. Clay and the Herald agree in relation to the mis management of the whig movemenU during the last Bummer. We are, indeed, sorry to see that Cassius Marplot Clay, Mr. Webster and others, are persisting in that bad policy, which we described and condemned, and which Mr. Clay has con demned. If, instead of trusting to the effect of the perambulations of these gentleman?the one in New York and the other in Pennsylvania?the intelligent whigs in every school district were to make a personal, confidential, and earnest applica tion, each man to his next door neighbor, amongst that great neutral mass who will have the decieion ol this contest, the fortunes of Henry Clay would not be obscured by that doubt, uncertainty, and danger, which have been settled on them. The abolitionists are formidable only in a very close contest. Their strength, compared to that oi the neutrals, is as a drop of water to the ocean. Now is the crisis of the Presidential election. We are persuaded that Maryland will go for the whigs. New Jersey will go for the whigs. Penn sylvania will go for the locofocos. But what o' thatl Let it never be forgotten that there are seven hundred thousand legal votert who have not appeared at the pollt during the la at three yrart That party which can most successfully operate ?n this mighty mass is sure of vic tory. As to the abolition vote it is not worth the trouble bestowed on it by the whigs, and the mission of Caiisius Marplot Clay to this State for the purpose of catching it,will do more injury than good; and this opinion is quite accordant with that of Henry Clay himself. Consul to Liveri'ool.?It will be recollected that we stated the other day that Mr. Adams, of Virginia, had been appointed to the Consulate at Liverpool. But it seems that that appointment was revoked immediately, and that Judge White, of Connecticut, has received the appointment Our first announcement was quite correct for the time. Mr. Adams was ofiered the Consulate, but recol lecting that he had been rejected by the Senate on a previous occasion, he thought it best not to ven ture again into that booy, and thus he declined taking it. It is supposed that Judge White will also decline. He is out of business, is a man of large property, and does not require such an office. If such he the case, a new host of applicants will, of course, rush forward. One of the most popular is, it is said, Alderman Benson, of this city, the chairman of the "Knickerbocker" club. He is backed hy strong influence and would make a capi tal Consul in Liverpool. Tub Liberty Party.?This party has been very quiet in the city, but they art now brushing up.? They hold a meeting to-night at the corner of Orand street and Centre Maiket place, which is intended as the commencement of a regular system of agitation. This pary are of no importance ex cept in a very close contest, and now that both the great parties are awakening to a sense of the overshadowing influence of 'hegn at neutralarniy, ami are striving to gain if over, the " liberty" men j . re in a great measure shoved aside. The meeting U-night, will, however, doubtless be curious, and we Shall accordingly report it in to-morrow s paper. J" vipirkCitt or thk West.?It ia said that there are iihw five hundred houses going up in St. Louie. St. I.?uis will soon he the largest inland city in America. CoNsrt, or Hambirb.?C. H. F. Monng has he?n recognized a? such for Boston PuiLADCLruu as it wah, amd as it is?A person familiar with Philadelphia as it was a few years since, on visiting it now, can hardly believe it to be the same city. At almost every turn he recognizes the evidences ot a change?a in?lancholy change. A year or two ago, Philadelphia was pointed to with a just and honorable pride, as a model city as the pattern of all that was orderly, peaceful, clean ly and attractive?as posseting everythingi s municipal government, in the general conduct ot its inhabitants, and in iis whole character, which entitled it to occupy the very chief est place amongst the great cities of the earth. And to the intelligent stranger who visited that city,ample evidences pre sented themselves, in every direction, of prevalent goad order, prosperity, and high respectability.? The cleanliness aud quiet of the streets?the staid demeanor of the inhabitants?the sober aspect ot the whole placa?all leiton the mind oi the obser ver a new and most agreeable impression.? One could not help wondering how, with such an unwonted absence of the usual din and tumult of a great city, the extensive and flour ishing trade and commerce ?f the place were car ried on ; and every traveller came away convinced that the " Quaker Cily" approached mare nearly to the Utopian standard of peace, regularity and happiness, than he had before imagined possible in any city on the lace of tha glabe. Indeed, so deep was the impression thus created, that many stran gers were accustomed to complain that Philadel phia was too quiet?too orderly?too sober too pre cise?too well-behaved. It is, indeed, painful to behold the change which the brief period of a year or two has produced. One beholds it with feelings somewhat akin to those with which we regard a friend, whom we had known in former days as a prosperous, happy and reputable man, but who now stands belare us the dishonored and degraded victim of vice and crime. There is an unusual bustle in the streets? not the bustle ef business, which gives cheeriul token of prosperity?but the bustle of excited par ti/.anship?the bustle of crowds of . ever-listlcis loiterers, that attend No camp?no Juty?and no iriand? the bustle of " rowdyism" and disorder. The ta verns are crowded. Party flags of gaudy colors 6tream from the windows. Gangs of idle men and boys march in pracession through the streets, with bands of mu&ic playing party tunes. Drunken fel lows reel in the public places, shouting aloud snatches of parly songs. Ragamuffins joBtle you in the leading thoroughfares. The loud impreca tions of the blasphemer are heard at every corner. Bands of ferocious laaking lads, not yet grown up to manhood, are seen prowling about the suburbs with red-flannel shirts, leather belts and muskets. Street fights are frequent. Immense numbers of aban doned women throng the streets at night. Im mense assemblages of people lake place in the public places by torch-light. The loud and in furiated Bhoutings of mobs disturb the stillness of the beautiful and quiet squares. Artful and blustering demagogues harangue excited crowds, and their fierce denunciations of fellow citizens are applaud ed to the heavens. The stranger beholds the blackened ruins of sacred edifices and asks "What is this!" whilst the citizen shakes his head and gives an evasive reply. Long rows of houses are shut up and quite deserted in some quarter* of lh<< city, where it seems as if a plague had recently been spreading desolation and dismay. The old residents of the city, as they close with unusual care their doors and shutters in the evening, wonder what is to be the end of all this. Every where disoider?discord?intemperance?partizan ship?rowdyism?demoralization appear to be at work, writing on every public place throughout that noble city?"that glory has departed!" What has been the cause of all this 1 What has wrought this fearful change 1 What terribly potent agency of evil has thus in so briel a time convert ed the model city into a warning, and an example not to be imitated but to be shunned 1 The an swer is easily given. Parly spirit has done this. Civil discord has done this. A paralytic govern ment has done this. Demagogueism has done this. And they are still doing this. Philadelphia is in a fearful state. At any moment a single spark may wrap the whole city in conflagration ? In such a stale of things what is the duty of all men in that city and county who desires to secure their own safety and the welfare of Philadelphia! It i? clear that they should at once unite in an effort to procure a re-organization of the city government, and in the expulsion of the foul spirit of civil dis cord which has already wrought such ruin. And if this be not done soon, who can tell what the next six months may bring forth of shame, dis grace, insurrection and desolation 1 Hotil Intklmqhnce.?It has been announced in various quarters that the Messrs. Howards who have established the hotel so extensively and fa vorably known a? "Howard's Hotel," in.Broad way, have disposed of tluil establishment to Capt. Roe.ofth; " Empire"steamboat, and Mr. Thomas. It is also stated that the purchnse was made for $50,000 The gentlemen who have thus become the proprieters are very competent to undertake the task ot keeping this hotel in the same excellent style for which it has been celebrated under the regime of the Howards. Captain Roe is well known to the travelling public for his gentlemanly demeanor, capacity, rand skill. Mr. Thomas, also ot Albany, is equally well known, and no doubt will contribute his full share in keeping upthetcha racter of the house. As for the Howards, we are glad that they have done so well in so short a time. We presume, be ing relieved now from the labor of keeping such a large establishment, they will retire to some of those beautiful retreats with which their native State, Vermont, abounds ; and where could they find a more attractive spot than some one of thoBe delightful places in the neighborhood of Burling ton on Lake Champlain 1 So much lor this hotel. We also understand that the new hotel on the French plan which has been in process of erection for some time past in the upper part of Broadway, is lo be opened in Novem ber, and that it will be kept by a young gentleman, a pupil of the famous Cozzens of the "American," and now one of the "native" Aldermen of this city. If we may judge of the pupil from the ctipa city ot his instructor, we cannot doubt that his , house will be well kept But he will require, as the house is to be kept on the French plan, the aid ot some one well acquainted with the mode of con ducting hotels in PariB. Great preparations are also making in Washing ton for the introduction of a great reform in the management of hotels, and perhaim in no other city under heaven was such a reform more neces sary. During the last few years "Uadsby's Hotel," as it has been called, has been kept in the moxt bungling and wretched style. Nobody can imagine a more wretched place than "Gadsby'a" under the old re/fimt, particularly Bince old Mr. Gadsby lelt it. We are therefore glad to learn that Mr. Cole man, formerly of the Astor House in this city, ha* undertaken the reformation of that house, and that it will be kept hereafter in such eicellent style as to secure the approbation of all christians and gen tleinec who may stop there. Mr. Coleman takeB with him to Washington a very high and well earned reputation, and ao doubt he will keep if up ihereand introduce a new era in hotel-keeping in the ciiy of magnificent distances. We also understand that certain parties, in this city, who have had great experience in the busi u--en, intend erecting a splendid liott I in the course of a ye^r <>r so, which will eclipse all those at pr< - nt hi existence. The past se:i<tnn has b"en unusually profitable to ihe hotels. 'J hey have ?ll done an excellent busi ness, and the proprietor* of many of tnem have realized handaome fortunea, or at least the founda tion of handsome fortunes, m a single teason. Newspaper Movements?Two uew evening papers Uavc appeared within the last few days one of them from the ashes of a morning paper, the other a sort of offshoot from a weekly. Anotli* r new evening paper, also a growth trout a weekly is to appear next week ; making all about ilir< e new papers within the last few days, and probably before the month is out, we Bhall have two or thref more. These movements are quite similar to the numerous movements in newspaper literature that are annually taking place in this city. At this moment there are four or five papers almost on their last legs, hardly able to waddle along, and as soon as the election is over two or three otthem will waddle out of existence and into oblivion.? But no matter how much money is lost on these new projects and enterprises, there is always a new set of adventurers, ready with cash or credit to start such enterprises and carry on the movement from year to year. During the last ten years that we have been in existence, there has been spent probably over ,5200,000 in fruitless newspaper enterprises, all of which money went to the dogs. We have no doubt that during the next ten years, hair a million of dollars may be thrown away in the same way. The truth is, a great many persons with much vanity and not a superabundance of industry, start those enterprises in the belief that they can super cede any of the old and well-conducted newspaper establishments, which owe their stability and suc cess to tact, talent, and unceasiug industry. But these aspirants find themselves mistaken in a short time. There is no pio ession that requires such a vigilant eye?such a stable mind?such a compre hensive intellect?such a ready perception, as the conductor of a newspaper. He must be awake al most night and day. He must observe passing events with a ceaseless vigilance, that none can realize but those who are engaged in the work.? Whan new aspirants appear in the field, we may compliment them and talk about their prospects, and speak cheerfully to them; but all that is "talk ing to Buncombe." No one can succeed in the present state of newspaper literature, in this city, without he possesses four most important ingredi ents?the first is, cash?the second is, industry? the third is, plenty of time?and, the fourth is, talent. Personal Movements. General Maikle left Philadelphia on Wednesday for Reading. He was accompanied by Judge Bank*, Mr. Richard*, and a few other friend*, and i* to tarry for a short time at York, Pa., en his way home, and will be at the great ma*s meeting to be held at York on Friday.?

Mr Webster was announced to address the whig muss meeting at Valley Korge yesterday, aud 1* expected at Pottsvilie to morrow for a similar purpose. Mr Calhoun is said to be preparing for a report on the Oregon negotiation , The Hon W. P Mangum of N C. is still seriously in disposed at his residence on Flat River.

Theatricals, &o. The Park.?The new opera of Mr. Jones was performed a third time last evening, before another large and elegant audience. It improves on every repetition. The New Ballet at Palmo's Theatre.?There was quite a crowded and fashionable house at Palmo's last night, to witness the new ballet which has been produced there. The ballet is full of bustling incident, and has been got up in really splendid style. Mons. Martin and Mile. Desjardins appear to have exerted themselves very much in producing the ballet in a creditable manner, and they certainly have succeeded. The Misses Val lee also merit particular commendation. Amongst the corpt de ballet is a number of very pretty faceB, and altogether we are quite warranted in predict ing for this ballet a long and prosperous run. Macready made his appearance at the Melodeon, in Boston, on Tuesday, to a house of a thousand dollars. Madsme Arnault, in company with Signor and Signora Cassella, are about to give some concerts in Boston, and from thence they are expected at Albany. The former lady has been highly success ful throughout her northern tour, and has elicited considerable notice and approbation. The Boston " Handel and Haydn Society" have fitted up the Melodeon for concerts, and Henry Philips, will make his first appearance there on Sunday evening next. Dr. Lardnei commenced delivering nts lectures on astronomy in the Tremont Temple, Boston, last evening. ... ... ? .

The schr (the Pacific) arrived here on Monday last, and after selling a pwrtion of her caigo, cleared at tbe custom house, preparatory to proceeding on her voyage. There being a calm, she drifted down, off the ligtit, where she came to an anchor. Thecaptain and a parted hercrew came up to town, where the captain declared her to be unseaworthy, and not fit to proceed on her voy age. A survey was sent off next morning, and from the evidence of some of the crew, who alterwnrds retracted it, and from the fact of her leaking at the lime, rtcom mended her being discharged aud hove down for further examination. To this survey the mate and three passen gers, all that were on hoard, ontered their protest, and de c'tnrJdthe vessel to be in a* good condition a* when she le(t the port of New York. After some dispute but ween the captain, his mate and passenger*. it was concluded to proceed to her oiiginal destination. How well this r?: fleets upon 'he captain, we leave those better acquainted with thrse matters to judge. We know but little of the motive ot thi* trans-tctron, but we can assure those who have been so forward in slandering our citizens, that traud or underhand dealing i* never connived at by the majority ot this community. We have received several affidavits giving an ex parte statement of this affair, in which it is repre sented that John Brown, the mate, was flogged and put ashore by thecaptain and crew. We do not publish them,because the above gives, probably, af fair an account as has been received; and of the truth of the above, we know nothing. City Intelligence. Ijnwrr Police Ofllee, Oct I.-Th?

This meeting wtus announced to take place ai 7 o'clock last evening, but it was near eight ere the business of the meeuug commenced, ?lter some very strong or rather noisy expressions ol impatience on the part of those present?by stampiug on their feet, knocking their sticks, whistling, &c. A band of muric was stationed in the balcony which every now and then, with some popular tunes, amused the parties present, the Utter beating time with their feet and sticks. The room throughout the proceedings was well filled, but in about an hour it somewhat thinned, and the shouts of the crowds outside occasional ly interfered with the proceedings in the room; those present appeared to be quite cool and calm, and the only enthusiasm expressed was during and at the conclusion of the songe; these appeared to give more satisfaction than the ten times told tales of the different speakers; lor when the singers withdrew to favor those on the outeide with a song, numbers followed them. In the street those assem bled were addressed by several of the usual Indi viduals who stick close to the skirts of all parties; occasionally interspersed with the discharge of a few rockets. On the stump hustings in front of the National Hall, several speakers presented them selves, more than there was any possibility for time to allow them to bring forth all the great knowledge with which they abounded. On the opposite side, Ihe top steps of the Roman Catholic Church was turned into a platform for the promulgation of whig doctrines. On the right and left, at a short dis tance, were others addressing the different partite assembled around them, or discussing the different points at issue. The more youthful portion ol those present were iu high glee, and shouted as loud ai<d as strong as it they were paid for it. About the hour mentioned, Jas. ft. Wood, fcsq , president of the Seventh Ward Democratic Clay Club, took the chair, amid some cheering. The Chairman then called for Mr. Dixon or Mr. Collins to favor the meeting with a song; but neither of the persons answered the request, if they were pre sent. The gentleman then begged to introduce to the meeting? Mr. Boi'ltoh, of Broome county .?The gentleman w?? received with three cheers. He commenced in the usual way?the great honor done him in being allowed to ad dress them ; he congratulated those present on the whig prospects at succens?no language could express the emo tions he felt. The present gatherings were the xponta neon* ebullition of the people to rescue their country Irom the hands oi treason into which it had recently fallen. (Cheers ) They met (or the purpose ol giving a ereat embodiment of those principle* in iheperionol the neble candidate whom they had nominated. (Cheers.) The foremost of the issues at present to be contested was the taritf'-the protection of American industry. (Great cheering.) This question was alone sufficient to decide the whole of the appreaching elections. The looofoco* only wished it repealed to put money in their peckets, and to carry out the views of the British free traders lor which they had recently received British gold. (Great cheering.) Then the locofocos were desirous of appro printing the proceeds of the public lands to make up the deficiency caused by the repeal of the tariff. This was most unjust?most dishonest. If the tariff wasjrepealed, the working men of this country would soon be in the same half-starvedj miserable state of the woiking classes of England, to thii enrichment of the aris'.ocratic few. (" Hear, hear," and che.eis.) While the masses went down the locofoco leaders with their hands in the pockets of the people, would go up, up, up. (Great cheering.) The g-ntleman then proceeded to attack Mr. Polk'H predecessors, and endeavored to show that Mr Polk mult necessarily be a British tory, because his gr ndfather was one. He then proceeded to nrgae thut i'txas must ever be a slsvtholding country?and its an n< xatiou would be a disgrace to this or any other coun try. The gentleman next proceeded to illustrate his ar. guments with a few jokes from Joe Miller and other scaice and valuable works, with trifling alteration, te the great amusementfof t'loae present,who enjoyed them very much, il a judgment might be formed from the amouut ol laughter they created. In conclusion, the gentleman call ed upon those present to shake off the dew drops from their garments and rush on to victory. The gentleman then sat down amid great cheering. The Clay Glea Glub then favored the meeting with the glee? " We're s band of freemen !" Afterward*, the song and chorus? " The locofocos wear wry faces." There were then loud eries for " Dixon, Dixon," when that person came forward and was received with loud cheering, tie then proceedod to sing one of his original song*? , ?? Hurra for Harry Clay-hurra for Harry Clay? He's bound to be our President I've heaid the people say." At the conclusion, thiee hearty cheers were given for Iienry day. Mr Wm D. Mumht, of the Seventh Ward, then pto credcd to address the meeting He commenced by saying he had been doing goo I work iu the open air until he win quite hoarse, nnd he had nothing new to advance; the gentleman who preceded him liavi ig amply mid eatislsc torily treated uponeveiy point worthy of the people's con sideration . The gentleman went on to pass u high eulogv upon tl'.e working cJassis. and raid tbey were tho whole strength aiH value ol the land, aud had a right to manago their own affairs, which they would do most satisfactorily ere March n< xt. The gentleman then proceeded to show that no such thirg as lree trade ever did or could exist, and wherever attempted, led to the tuin ol the country in which such attempt wm made. The gentleman con tended that the wnole of the revolutionary struggle was founded upon the right of the inhabitants to prstect their own industry. It was for this that thsir ancestors lought and bled. 1 he gentleman next treated on Texas, unn? xa tion, British perldy, snd the injustice done to Henry < lay ?and, in conclusion, ?aid the whole of these were nothing in comparison to the importance of the question of the tariff to the working man. He called upon all present lo buckle on their armor and prepare for tha mighty strug gle. and not to be contented until they had accomplished a great and glorious victory; then they could go hom^ and rest themselves until another opportunity presented iuelf of striking unother blow at the enemies of the country. Great cheeiiug, amid which the gentleman aat d?HiR*M Krtchcm, Etq.. said that the proceedings of this evening showed that ihe Seventh Ward was doing its duty, and the attendance on the occasion evidenced the interest took in the great question* before the country He then proceeded to show ihe line of conduct lo bs pur sued at the appreaching election. The gentleman then gave ? long treatise on forbearance, endeavoiing to incul cate the doctrine of, if smete on one cheek to turn the other for a second blow, if it would promote the good cause they wee oil anxious to see successful. Ho then recommended the forming ol districts near to their homes, for towateh snd guide the electors in their different neigh hoods. At the coucluuon there was considerable cheer ing lor the speaker, Henry Clsy, iic., lie., when the meet ing broke up, it being near tea o'clock. Naval.?The U. S. steamer Michigan on Lake Erie, sailed from Erie, Pennsylvania, for Detroit, Michigan, on Tuesday, the 1st instant. She has been fitted out very speedily, and all her guns have been left on shore, except one large 62 pounder, forward. She will cruise for about a month,when navigation closes, und she will have lo go into win ter quarters. A more comfortable ship never left port; her accommodations for both officers and men arc admiruble, and,her Commander, William Inman, of New Jersey, is well calculated for the command, being very affable in his manner, and one who wilt, no doubt, make the Navy popular with western men.

Meeting of tike National Reformer*. List night's meeting waa held at the corner of Chatham and Mulberry street*; about twenty per sons were present, and the proceedings were not marked by anything savoring of energy, novelty, or enthusiasm. Indeed, it was sometime after they began that their purport could be gathered, as system had little to do with the movement of the learned {council. Mr Bebee was chairman, and invited all to communicate freely their views. Mr. IIattick made a few observations about the appointment of a delegation to attend the great New England Convention which is to take place shortly, upon which several suggestions were of fered by other members?some thinking that one delegate wonld'be sufficient, and save expense; others contending that three would be little enough to represent ihem and bring up worthily the views of their constituents in all their integrity. A com mittee was at last named and appointed to act in the matter. A subsequent conversation arose as to who the single delegate^ should be. Mr. Devyr's name was proposed, the first as a very suitable person to be charged with a mission where there would be considerable to do, and no small amount of talk ing to perform besides. Several others agreed with all that was Baid of Mr. Devyr's specified qualifications; nevertheless they regarded Mr. Uomerford aB a still preferable delegate, on ac count of his acquaintance with the Yankees and his general popularity, and because he was pecu liarly calculated to remove the strong prejudices that prevail in that part of the country against the cause. The next, and decidedly the most absorbing bu siness tliat was started during the whole evening was a proposal lor a subscription to defray the ex pense of the delegation. A sheet of paper proper ly ruled and headed, soon made its appearance, and a host of prompt payers came forward una most generously gave their names for a sum which we brieve amounted to seven or eight dollars. Whea this was finished, the Secretaiy respect fully apprized all wh?# heard him, that there was a turtner trifling sum required for the rent, and light ing of the room. The announcement seemed es pecially intended for a lew who had just lilted their hats to decamp; but it did not produce the in tended efl'ecton them, as they went on their course rejoicing. Money was raised,however, and enough for the purpose, bate forty cents, which deficit tne worthy secretary urged upon them to raise. The forty cents was added, and so ended the fiscal af fairs ef the night. Mr Tinb then addressed the meeting He deplored the thinness of the assembly?the false direction which the minda{oI the people had received to run after the old par ties and their nostrums, whilst they neglected what wan emphatically their own interests in me present move ment. He was every day more convinced of the urgent necessity of giving the public lands to the working men. The present prosperity was illusory, and a time would again come, and that in two years, when, as formerly, the mechanic would want employment, want friends, but woiid not fiud them in those speculators and capitalists who preached up protection?protection for American in dustry,but who in reality meant protection to themselves, to enslave, buy and oppress the laboring classes. He al luded to the operation of the capitalists in Kngland and France, aad contended that human nature being the ssme in all ages and places, the same effects of the tyranny of capital would be visible here, nay, were so already, even in Oregon, where man's cupidity was so great that, nut content with having the richest lands and most eligible situations, they were now employed in land jobbing und rapacious t florin to accumulate property and cheat their successors out of their fair share. Mr Pine concluded by exhorting all friends to the cause to bo up and doing look to the elections and secure a representation in Con gress in order that their principles might lie placed fairly before the country. : he meeting adjourned about 0 o'clock. Late from Mexico.?The following is a trans lation ?fa letter from Vera Cruz, published in La Indiana, a locofoco paper printed in the Spatish language in New Orleans. It is a rich affair, and we invite special attention to the last paragraph but one:? VksaCkoz, Sept. 3,1844,?Since my last, various events have taken place of whir.h it is necessary you should be iutormed. General Ampudia passed through this place, for the city of Mexico, with the object of taking cnargtt ol the artillery of the army, destined to invade Texan, but he has returned to Tobasco, for the purpose of taking charge again, as Captain General ot that Department ? Tnis movement was quite unexpected alter wnat has pas sed, and time alone can unravel the enigma. Ampudia, while in Mexico, found himself compelled to tell the public that the frj ing the head of General Sent* manat was a tiuth, but that he nad nothing to do with it, that it was done by order of the Cummandant at Arm:., and that so soon an he ki.ew ot it, be sent orders to stop the proceeding, lie Sic.

The new Amtrican Minister reached here some days since, and proceeded immediately for Mexico; it is known here that he has been robbed by the way, and that he says the robbers touk from him seventy doubloons, but this is believad here to tie a farce of the Minister'! invention in hope of being paid that sum. The government, notwith standing, hat laken energetic steps for the pros?cution of the an hors ol the theft--it there were any. On Monday, the general of division, Valentin Canalizo. and atliff, with all the chiefs and officers belonging to the invading army against Texas, started for San LuisjPotoii.
