MEW YORK HERALD. New York, Wednesday, October lfl, 1844. European Intelligence. We may expect news by the Acadia to-morrow or next day. She was to hirve let t Liverpool ou the 4th w?t., and is, therefore, due at Boston to-day. We shall receive by her fifteen days later accounts trom all parts oHMfope. ~ * Hecent Political Movements In the Cltjr? Their Importance on the Presidential (Question. The recent political movements in this city, in reference to the election of President?the strange development of new parties, with new views and new purposes, are beginning now to attract a great deal of attraction in every circle of society here, and throughout the country. The rest of the news paper press of New York being divided between the several parties?the organs of these parties? bound to these parties as the soul of Faust was to Mephistophiles? they are incapable of travelling beyend the magic circle of their vocation, or ol giving such a comprehensive view of all those movements, as would enable any intelligent man, in any part of the country, to understand what is really going on?the character and progress of events affecting the great result?and the probable termination of the whole fermentation. This field of action is left entirely to a neutral journal?to a neutral mind. Not a neutrality, however, that has no will, or opinion, or intelligence; but a neu trality that is like the law of nature?an active, living neutrality, preserving itself from being pre cipitated into extremes, and operating as a sort of executive of the human mind, and an administra tor amid the pauious and mutabilities of the hu man heart. We will now proceed. From the returns of the elections throughout this great republic, it is very evident that the contest will be so close as to give the responsibility of electing Polk or Clay to the State of New York ; and the city of New York is in such a singular position, that it will decide the State, so that the election of Mr. Clay or Mr. Polk rests with this " imperial city." Such is almost every man's opiniou now, from Mr. Webster down to the veriest loafer that huzzaas for either of the candidates. A just understanding of the move ments and tendencies of the masses in this city, will, therefore, give us a correct view of the ulti mate result of this extraordinary contest. Hereto, fore, in the city of New York, the democratic party have generally been in the ascendant, and carried the elections; but, in consequence of an unlortunate and fatal movement, made by certain portions of the naturalized citizens in Carroll Hall, under the auspices of Bishop Hughes, a few years ago, a new spirit was evolved, which affected both parties and particularly the democracy, and result ed in the formation of the new, or " native" pary Last spring this new development came to a head, and we were presented with the extraordinary spectacle of three great parties in this city?the wtiigs, the democrats, and the "natives"?and singularly enough the " natives" exhibiting a su periority over the others, in detail. This spirit spread into Philadelphia, and but for the separa tion of the abolitionists from the whigs, and the for mation of the "liberty" party in some of the interior districts of Pennsylvania, the " native" movement in the city of Philadelphia, combined with the whigs, would have secured that State for the whigs, to the astonishment of every body. The result of that extraordinary mwvement in Phila delphia, has awakened hopes of carrying through here a similar project with equal success, thereby saving the election of Mr. Ciay to the Presidency, and neutralizing the injury that the formation of the " liberty" party in the interior of the State might foment. In possession of these viewB we have seen, there fore, during the last few days, several meetings of the "natives," and at these meeting* a spirit of revi val manifested, which indicates in the most deci sive manner the purpose of the leading whigs and leading " natives" to the formation of a similar coalition in order to elect Mr. Clay. The "native" party by their conduct in the corporation, since their election, had secured for them gen? ral con tempt, and forfeited all claims to public confidence by their violation of every pledge and promise rela tive to city reform. But the crisis in the Preeiden. tial question?the dangerous position of Mr. Clay? with various other circumstances, have reinstated this " native" party in their former importance, and given them a momentum even stronger and more powerful than that which they possessed last spring. We have seen this in the Congressional mass meetings already. The fir-t meeting of the na tives iii Vauxhall was a failure, but that took place before the new idea that has been since formented was generated. The recent meetings all show distinctly the purpose of the leaders of both par ties, the whigs and "natives;" and at the last meeting, the "native" candidate himself, as we have seen, came out openly and declared that they were in favor of Henry Clay. The union?the coalition?is now open and complete. There can now be no denial of its existence. We conceive, ther< fore, that the whole of the whig congressional candidates, senatorial and legislative, will be abandoned by their party, and only held up " for Buncombe." Hiram Ketchum, Mr. Phmnix, Mr. Fish, and all the whig candidates, will be thrown overboard, in order to secure this union between the " natives" and the whigs, so as to carry the election of Mr. Clay; and we are thus presented with the extraordinary spectacle of the rump of the old whig party absolutely adopting the strange and vehement outcries?declamation?mottoes banners?and sentiments, characteristic of the ex treme of the " native" party! In the midst of one of those " native"-whig meetings, one would suppose thai we were living, not in the nineteenth, hut in the middle of the fif teenth century, when Rome was struggling against the Reformation. The language of the speakers? the exclamations of the crowd?the persecuting taunts?the btgotted out-cries?the fierce denuncia Hons? the violence, intolerance, and sectarian ana themas, which characterize such meetings, make the scene resemble more, that, which centuries ago was witnessed in the cities of Europe, when th? glare of faggots, instead ot Drurnmond Lights, illu mined the multitude, and th?- shouts of expiring martyrs, instead of the yells of loafers, filled the air. And yet these are the scenes presented iri th> chief city of republican?christian?enlightened America, in the middle ot the nineteenth century What an extraordinary state of things! What an extraordinary state of parties! The whigt throughout the country, stimulated in relation to slavery by their leaders in and out of Congress, in to "liberty" organiz lions which have brought the fortunes ot Mr. Clay into extreme jeopardy ; and the folly and indiscretion ot the democracy origi nating a " native" movement, which seized on b> whigs, affording the last chanre of saving their can didate! Thi? movement has been called ' Youna Ameiica," and with some reason too, for singularly enoufh, the " native" meetings are attended by crowds of the youth in every ward. Such is the extraordinary developement, combining youthful enthusiasm, religion and bhrphemy, the cry of " the Bible and Liberty," which has now been forced, by the critical position ot the old parties, into an attitude of altogether unexpected strength and importance, and now holds in its grasp the fate of the Presidential candidates. We have yet much to say on this subject. Great Native Meeting the Park on Fri day ?There is to be a tremendous meeting of the Whigs and "Natives" in the Park on next Friday afternoon. The "union" is to be then consum mated. Chanue in the Eastern Maii. ?On and after to-morrow, the Eastern Mail via Stoaiagton, Bos !'>n and Providence, will close at 3 <Velock, P M.

On looking over the Canada papers, we find that electioneering concerns occupy the greater part of their columns. Little reliance cau be placed upon the statements of either party, for it is quire apparent that, as much excitement, par tizansliip,Hgp< rity and intolerance, is at work among the Canadians, as in any other quarter of the world. On one side we have the combined forces of the French Canadians, and the overwhelming portion of the Irish population, animated with the most determined spirit of resistance to the principles of Sir C. MetcalPs government, to the persons he has chosen to draw about him as advisers, and to the oligarchical and exclusive character of his policy. The French are fired with a love of their laws, their language, and their nationality; the Irish are spurred on by the recollections of the inflic tions heaped upon their own country by the advo cates of the same principles as those of their oppo ponents in the present struggle; they see in the persons of the fanatic orangemau, in the newly imported cockney bureaucrat, in the representa tives of Manchester shirtings and Glasgow checks, who, in goodly numbers constitute the mercantile hordes who swarm in the townB, as the shad fly does along the banks of the St. Lawrence?in all these, ihe friends of the present ad-ministration? the combined forces of the popular party behold the foes they hate, and the unchanging enemies of popular influence. Articles the most violent and abusive teem from the newspapers, and are read with the utmost avidity by all; the most unscrupulous use of gross, violent, and defamatory language, is made from day to day. Meetings are held, both in town and country in favor of candidates, and no more ex citement could be manifested in the struggle, if the safety of an empire were at stake. In Montreal, the reformers are remarkably active, so much so that they seem to have paralyzed the government party. Even the papers belonging to the latter, complain of the apathy of their friends, and it re quires little knowledge of the electors of that city, to see clearly that the friends of the present ad ministration will get even a greater thrashing in the approaching election, than they]_did a few months ago. In Kingston, there is a warm canvass carried on, and the result is uncertain. Mr. Sherwood has been returned from Brockville.mnre on account of ] his personal influence than his connection with a tory administration. It is eaid, with some show of probability, that Mr. Viger will uot be able to se cure his election, and that others of the ministry will find themselves in a similar predicament. There was, it appears, no truth in therumorof Mr. Papineau's intention to return from France, and take part in the present contest going on in Cana da; indeed, when there laBt, he got as much of politics as should last him his lifetime. Triumph or Dr. Hawks in thk Episcopal Con tention.?The recent proceedings in the Episcopal Convention against 13r. Hawks, have resulted iu his complete vindication, as will be seen from the report, which we give on our firet page. This whole business has presented a very signal illustra tion of the perseverance, malignity and despicable character of professional jealousy and envy. Dr Hawks, soon after he came to this city, at tained the highest degree of popularity as a divine, a scholar, and a gentleman?a union not always met with in the same person. The block heads in the profession, of course, set to work against him?for let a man become popular in any sphere, and he is certain of this not vert agreeable proof of his success and su periority. In his private relations, the Doctor was unfortunate, and this was greedily seized upon by his calumniators. Amongst them, George Wash ington Dixon, the celebrated Clay melodist and " native" editor, was conspicuous, and he published a libel on the Doctor of a most infamous character, for which he was sent to the State Prison. Then, again, when at Flushing, the speculations of Dr Hawks in the establishment of an academy failed; that also was taken advantage of for the purpose of coining and circulating new slanders. The same spirit pursued the Doctor to the West, and burst out in full blast in the Convention. But Dr. Hawks has completely triumphed. Thus ever may ca lumny and slander be foiled! Dr. Hawks, is an erudite and eloquent preacher, and has a great deal more practical piety than such men as Dr. Tyng and others. The Assembly Ticket.?The Democratic No minating Convention met last evening, and com pleted the Assembly ticket. The following gentle men will be reported to the County meeting as nominees of the party:? Jihn M. Bradbnrat, George H Mann, Bernard J. Mesuroie, Kliu L Smith, John Tennre, Joiephu* N ' rnin, Michael Burke, Alexander Gardner, baae It S ? ith, Lorenxs B Sbepard, Augunte, John ?win, Joseph C. Albertion. Affairs in Texas ?This country, so far as annexation is concerned, is now in a more im portant and interesting position than ever. It appears by the latest accounts, that Anson Jones, who is said to belong to the " English party" in that republic, and who is, therefore, op posed to a union with the United States, is elected President, in opposition to Gen Burleson, a strong and warm advocate for that measure. It is be lieved that Jones seeks an alliance, of a eommer ial character, with Great Britain, and his faith in the vitality of Texas as an independent nation, is only equalled by Santa Anna's determination that it shall not be one. If Jones be really elected, the movements of our little neighbor will be looked to with increased in terest and anxiety. The Great Footrace.?The proprietors of the Beacon Course have determined, if possible, that this great affair shall come off at three o'clock to day. If this morning is at all favorable, timely in timation will be given, by the firing of cannon, Jtc. on the course. The two trotting matches ad vertised lerthisday are postponed until to morrow The betting on the foot race continues much the same iih mentioned yesterday?if any change, it is the Englishmen advancing in favor; but the field is taken against them See advertisement. Important Decision.?It has just been decided in Boston, that a slave can only serve on board an United States national veesel, while that vessel is within the slave limits of this country; and,that the moment the vessel passe* without those limits, he can claim his discharge Mm* MMInf of ttve " SttlTft" of Mm "SMnrtli W&rd-OrMt Procession?thoweri of Klo quMC* and Flood* of Rain. The American Republicans of the Ninth Ward, held a mas meeting last night in Christopher Square, the hour appointed being 8 o'clock. Proceedings must have begun much earlier, tor, on the arrival of our reporter before eight, the greater part of the business had been done. In point of numbers the assembly was veiy considerable, as there were ful ly two thousand five hundred present. Had the weather been good there would have probably been still more ; however, according to a most strict and accurate computation the numbers present were as above stated. Preparations were got up in a most spirited manner to bring this affair ofl with (rlut, and as tar as good music, countless flags, streamers, banners and decorations went, it was an influential demonstration. Jkkkmuh Tkkiikll, being chosen President, a long set of resolutions were read and adopted ? They denounced in most severe terms the "Albany Argus" aud its editor, on account of its late call up?n the foreigners to come out with their votes, aud retard the progress ol nativeicin ; they animad verted also upon the Militia Law, the School, and dwelt at length upon the necessity of sustain ing their nominees, Thomas M. Woodruff, for Congress, and D<md E- Wheeler, for Assembly Mr. B. S. Whitney, Mr. W. W. Campbell, and Mr. Folsome, severally addressed the crowd ; but as the proceedings commenced long in advance of the hour advertised, we lost their speeches Mr Woouaurr f jllowfd. Ho regarded that demonstra tion a* a sure sign that there wan among thsm an indo minitable determination to carry out the principles ol American Republiciinism. That patty was nothing more than a coalition 01 sterling worth, who were disgusted with thi mitrule of the oia parties, who bad escaped the contamination of their association* and who had at length found this cause as e spot on which to placti their feet. It would be well for all American Republicans to consider closely the distinguished points of their political creed i Those wfcre the School Bill, the Naturalization Laws, and above all the principle of giving preference to natives be fore foreigners. The old parties dare not meet them on those po.nts : there was not one of them they dared to optiose except the Naturalisation Laws, which on account of their primary i i portance they atiil Strug gled to defend. Mr. W. went on to argue that the tethers of the constitution never r> eant to encourage immigra tion to its present exteut, and that a prohibition ot foreigners would be in noway inconsistent with their in tentions either implied or expressed. H* thought that those who denounced them for proposing ail years resi dence essential to naturalization, ought to be thankful that they did not i aise their voices and totally proscrioe the very of a foreign adventurer iu this coun try Every one ot the native American partv was but th - personification or that eternal vigilance which is the price of liberty. The law gave to the foreigner protec tion for life and property, civil pi ivileges Hnd the benefits ol law and good government. To these he had ne objec tion, but he never would consent to see the franchise in the hands of the swarms of ignoramuses, knaves, fools and rogue* who coma from other nations. He would one- more beseech them to support their candidates tor Congress and Amenbly, and af er 'hat they might vote for Clay or Polk, just as they pleased. When this address-the grea er part of which was spokt n in a heavy rain?was delivered, the proc ssi >n re-for ed. and in a few minuses the ctowd was complete ly dispersed. Personal Movements. Among the passengers iu the packet ship Dorchester, at Boston for Liverpool, is the Rev. Olmias Morgan, of New Bedford. A true bill has been found In Baltimore against the Rev. C. T.

Advocate of Saturday last aays?"We are authorized to state that Mr. Rives, exhaust ed by sickness, aud by his arduous labors in the canvas*, will be unable to accept the numerous invitations extend ed to him to attend Whig meetings. He has been for the present positively interdicted by hii physieians from pub lic speaking. The Hon Langdon Cheves, having been spoken of in the newspapers as s suitable person to fill a vacancy in the -enate of the United States, should one of the present Senators of South Carolina resign, declines to accept of any public station whatever. The time of the Hon. William L. D'yton, United States Senator, elected in the place of Mr. Southard, will expire next March. It is stated that the Hon.

Weber's last waltz, and the beautlfu' TeUctions from "Sonnambula," were among the gems ol ef the evening Mr Sloman sung well, arid his imita tions of Parry were faithful and 'irresistibly comical' The instrumental and vocal performances evinced excel lent Judgment and feeling, and the press has hitherto spo ken of the young debutantes in no exaggerated strain ol eulogium."

A gojd.leal o( sensation ha* been produced in the mu sioal an 1 fashionable circles, by the account which we gave yesterday of the sudden explosion of the Italian opera in this city, aui! the scattering of the*e delightful element* ail around town in every direction. This (in gular Hire up hai been as great a topic of conversation as that of ihe judicial election, or even MUleiitm. E\ery oueis wondeiiDg whether thia is, indeed, the final explo sion of the opera, beyond the hope of revival or rescusci tation. We hardly know to solve this question. The recent short season, and the final flaie>up which took placei have been very curious affair* altogether in relation to musical afldir# here We understand that the regular subscription season doe< not commence till the middle ot November, and thai the season which his so suddenly and abxubtly terminated, was a speculation ef the manager, and.the troupe, who supposed that in the mcnth* ol September and October, when the city wait thronged with strangers, it could be niwd't profitable. But transient pationuge is not, it seemi, sufficient to support the opera, and the pecuniary difficulties became to great that the explosion was inevitable. Md!le Bi>t gbete receiving her share of the spoil* to the extent of $300 a week, whilst some of the others, and particularly the musicians, got hardly salt to their porridge, the catastrophe which we have recorded could not be avoided. People in the secret predicted that some night the whole would conclude with a grand display cf flrewoiks?a regular operatic pyro technic exhibition - and sure enough, all did go off with a profusion ol rockets. The tcenebefore the curtain was laughable enough? but that behind tho curtain was tenlold more amusing. Signor Fcroaii refused to " go on " unless he was paid?a very proper reason. But Palmo, by the advice of a friend, put the Signior at onee to his trumps by raising the curtain, and the fear c f the |>uhlio di<pleasure I.; iced the relractory tenor on thu stage. But not so with the orchestra?the half of them at once deoamped with their instruments under their arms, muttering our?M "not loud, but deep " But it was when Dinneford retired, after making his great speeeh, that the grand scene toek place. Valtellina, looking blacker and more piratical than ever, atrided backward* and forward*, wrapped up in hi* big cbak wondering whe devil that Dinneford wa* tlat *o well un derstood thea'.rical tactic*. Peroxsi leaned hi* head againit a ^pillar and beat the devil'* tattoo. The pooi chorus singer* were huddled up in a corner?image* ot despair?in tinsel and calico. But the beautiful Bor. gbeae? how did she demean herself at this moment of trial and dismay 7 She stood wringing her hands with the most tragic air imaginable - exclaiming, in tone* that would have melted a heart of stone, "Man Dieul?qur faule ilfaire 1 que faute-ilfaire ? Comment fair t Din neford entreated her to be calm?to beherielf; being u perfect Napoleon in his way, he laid, "My dear, Madam, you must go on?do go on, I bescech you, even with what instrument* are leftu*; take your chance with the pub lic " And Dinneford succeeded. The charming Borghece became calm as the heaven* after a thunder-storm on b gloriou* cummer eve, and did go ou. And she never sanp or acted better. Indeed, the whole performance went ot) admirably. Such life, spirit, and vigor, we never saw surpassed. The whole difficulty with the Italian opera, in this city, has been the want of an energetic, experienced, and Na poleon-like manager This is seen and admitted by all " Have you no police to compel these people to fulfill their contract 7" asked a foreigner in one of the boxea on Mon day night. Even one of the female chorus-singers could not help exclaiming?" It is a burning shame to treat I'almo;*o-if I were a man, I think 1 would kick every on* of these people out of the house We want good, en ergetic management?and a company possessed of good seine and discretion?and if such a company oan't be had we want a manager who will make them have common seme and discretion. There i* quite sufficient wealth taste and love of music in this city to support the opera. AU that i* wanted is that which we have ju*t described p S ?We understand that Mr. Dumbolten ha* taken

Paltno'a Theatre for a year, and opens to-night with th< " Ethiopian Serenaders." From the energy and tact ol this gentleman, no deubt he will succeed. He intend* to introduce a variety of new amusements, and expects sodm important arrivals from England. Concert* -Englisl, opera?genteel comedy?and all that will be given. Meyer, the great pianist, will be here soon, and alsothi Seguins. Thus has the Italian opera, in conaeqtince ti the indiscretion, folly, quarrels, and ridiculous condtlts of thu company b<ien destroyed, and no hope left of its n establishment. Superior Court.
