Advance in the Price of Cotton. GREAT RELIGIOUS EXCITEMENT, The packet ship Garrick, Captain Traak, has, as mual, made a short passage, and arrived here yes terday morning. She sailed from Liverpool on the 12th ult. The news, in a commercial point of View, is im phrtant. Cotton, had gone up one-eight of a penny a pound, with a large business. Oae third of her passige was made in five days. The Puseyite controversy was creating a good deal of excitement. Navigation was closed at Cronstadt. Nothing important from Ireland. O'Connell ^ ; was still making speeches. Ashbel Smith, Charge d'Aflaires of Texas, had ? an interview with the Earl of Aberdeen previous to his leaving London for Texas, the armed force now in Ireland is 10,000 men. The English journals are still discussing the elec tion of Mr. Polk. The packet ship Monteauma hence at Liverpool in 20J days. * The railway fever in England is still runninr high. The weather in England and Prance has been remarkably cold this year. The burial of the Princess Sophia Matilda was attended with much pomp and expense. There is a rumor of a tremendous fire at Stettin. Our accounts from Madrid are of the 8d ult., but they am utterly devoid of interest. Spain is, how ever, in a dreadful condition. The Earl of Limerick died on the 7th ult., at his lordship's seat, South hill Park, Berkshire, in the 87th year of his age. The marriage of Count de Jarnac, secretary of the French embassy, and son of Viscount de Cha bet, with the Hon, Mine Foley, sister of Lord Foley, was solemnised on 10th ult. Burgess, the bank of England clerk, who was arrested in this country, in company of Elder, for forgery on that establishment, has been commit ted for trial. A dreadful explosion took place on the South Eastern Railway, on the evening of the 10th ult., a little beyond the Bricklayers' Arms, London, whereby two of the attendants of the train were killed, and some two or three others severely in jured. ,tu Historical Romance, by the author of "Henri Quatre," had just been issued by Colbourn. It is well spoken of. Barrmn Nosth Amcbican Bank.?Yesterday a special extraordinary meeting was held of the pro prietors of this corporation, established some years since for the purpose of extending banking faci lities to British North America, to fill up a vacancy to the Court of Directors, occasioned by the death of the late \Fm. Pemberton The meeting was held at the bank's house, m St. Helen's Place, and the chair taken by Mr. Carter. The Chairman, after theminutesof the last court had been read, expressed the deep regret of the di rectors at the feus the bank had sustained by the death of Mr. Pemberton, whose super or talents and connections with colonial interests rendered him of the greatest utility in the management of the concerns of the establishment. The chairman then explained that the meeting was especially convened to fill up the vacancy, and described the mode ol the election tinder the deed. He had to propose to the meeting two candidates, Mr. William Chapman and Mr. Fowler Newsam. both of whom eligible according to the provisions ef the deed. The qualification for a director (the chair in in in reply to questions said,) was the holding of 25 shares. A somewhat animated discuasioa took place in favor of either of the candidates, some proprietors supporting Mr. Newsam, as he was an original proprietor, while Mr. Chapman, having been resi dent in tbo colony, and connected with banking and monetary matters in the British American colonies, was considered more eligible by others A principal point urged was, that the chairman should give the number of shares held by each proprietor. This was opposed by many present, as prying in to other people's affairs The Chairman expressed the desire of the court of direotora to yield the point, if the meeting so de cided. The question was put and negatived. Mr Ncwusm vindicated the course he had ta ken, and proposed an amendment to the resolution that Mr. w Chapman be elected. The terms of the amendment were detailed at some length, and were ultimately pronounced by the legal adviser of the court not to be in con sonance with the special meeting. A rhowof hands havirg then been taken for both the o?adidatcs,it was decided by a large majority in favor of Mr Chapman, who waa accordingly de- , cUrod a director; and thanks having been voted to the chairman, the meeting adjourned. Day sat or thu Lbasub.?A meeting of above 2000 persons took place in the Town Hall of Holm firio, oo Thursday, to hear a debate between Mr Htrper, the leoturrr of the Yorkshire Protective Society, and the notorious Mr. Acland, the agent of the Anti-Corn-Law League. Mr. Harper first addressed the meeting in a powerful tad convincing speech, which was he.t I with great attention, and much cheeied. Mr. Acland then went over the oft-beaten ground of his arguments; in the course of which he made the remarkable aacertion that " he hud never said that the corn laws were a tax upon lood, or that we should get food any cheaoer bv a repeal of the corn lawa!'r Mr. Harper, in his reply, exposed the absurb inconsistencies involved in the above assertion. On the conclusion of the debate, the question was put between the corn laws and free trade; when a decision in favor of protec tion was given by three to one; a result which was hailed with loud acclamations.?Loudon Herald.'

It is important to bear all order that we may fully under stand that it is no ebullition of " dissenting" or evangelical party-spirit that we now have to contemplate. .. *^hi?i being premised, we next have to remark, l H'hen the Bishop of Exeter felt it necessary to i j- aovice of his chapter, touching the rubri cal disputes which were springing up in his dio cese, he found the chapter divided in this singular manner All the ivmiar? were in favor of "carry ing out the rubric ??. e. of assuming the surplice, and reading the prayer for the Church militant, dec : while all the tentora counselled caution and moderation. One of these. Dr. Bull, canon residentiary, has just announced a " Letter on the Rubrics and Canons Another, Canon Martin, chancellor of the diocese, has given his reasons tor hesitation in the Exeter ptpeni. He states that among those Who coincided with him and Dr. Bull, were Chan a6 u!i '? re5""'y Archdeacon of London, the Archdeacon of Exeter, the Archdeacon of Barn ?tuple, and Canon Rogers. In these six names we ritnn.- k?,7,kDU8U?l >rray of Judgment and expe rtence; but their six votes were outnumbered by ?r r Prebendaries, and thus the bishon found the debision of his chapter (counting ok y V ?ead) Pr?peUing him forward. .

But this is only one part of ihe subject. Let us now observe how the rubrical Higlf Church'cityfn "CeiVed by the lai,y ot thi> It was not until Tuesday, we believe, that the bishop s letter was made public, and vet we find that as earlv as Thursday one parish in Exeter met, and on Friday another. ' The parish of St Lawrence met on Thursday, the 5th, and unanimously agreed to a series of re! solutions, of which the following are some passa ges ? That the sermon having been for many years a ^.1?P?rtaal distinct part of Divine service, and daring the hves of the parishioners and their forefathers the clergy of this parish having deliv fk J aermon8 in gowns, the parishoners view the introduction of the surplice into the pulpit as an attempt to bring again into nse a practice long discontinued, and as a precursor of many danger ous innovations." 8 ." That although the parishoners have cheerfully given to nil collections for specified purposes whenever required by their ministers, they will not contribute to any forced offertory ; and thev trust their church-wardens will firmly decline to join in. and as far as they can, prevent its establish meat" "That the parishoners feel it a duty incumbent on the laity in general instantly to reaist any change in the performance of Divine service, however unimportant or trivial that change may appear to ? a!j8' ,n- e8? t,mea il be made an excuse for the intsMuetioo of serious and important alterations and to the revival of obsolete forms and ceremo-* mes heretofore part of the worship of the Roman Catholic Church " They then speak of these changes aa likely "to be the means of driving the congregation to other places cf worship than those to which they have been accustomed," and desire the churchwardens to wait upon the minister of the parish, "and re apectfully to request him to continue the Church services in the manner he has hitherto performed tntm On the following day, the 6ih, the parish of St 1 Leonard met, and with equal unanimity agreed to I these resolutions:? "That it is highly inexpedient to introduce into any of ourchurches any of those innovations which have been attempted elsewhere. "That they regard such measures as highly inju dicious, and calculated very seriously to injure the Church in her highest and best interests, by alien ating the veneration of the laity, and by driving from her communion many of her most attached and conscientiousmembers. "That they protest against the principle of inno vat ion, which, when once conceded, will inevita bly involve other and more important changes. That they are surorised that the pastoral letter just issued should hold out an expectation that an en forcement of uniformity will lead to the restora tion of peace. That, in proportion aa the novel ties introduced elsewhere have beea enforced in parishes previously peaceful, have disunion, strife, and contention been promoted. That they, there fore, regard those of the clerav who first ereatec the movement which is now disturbing ihe church and more particularly such ecclesiastical rulers as have supported and abetted it, as incurring the deep responsibility of all that disorder which has already begun to manifest itself; and which they consider will inevitably spread itself ihroughont the king dorn, if in like manner patronised by ctler prelates to the no small detriment of the national establish ment, and triumph of all those who are watching for her overthrow." * Such is the first response of the laity to the call for obedience to forgotten rubrics, which, as the A^hbishop of Canterbury observed, from being fonotten have all the effects when revived of no velties and innovations. Here are two meetings in two days in a place where there are few dissenters and fewer Low-Churchmen: and the language una nimously adopted at each is ot the most decided and uncompromising character. What does this portend i If the Bishop of Exeter thus fails, who, after nira, will have a chance ot success T And by fail ure we do not mean an inability to oblige hisclergv to comply with the rubrics; but an inability to sa tisfy the minds of the laity. * .11 these two specimens furnish anything like a fair sample, as we apprehend they do, of the public mind, then the question wnl very soon be seen to be?whether the rubrics were made for the Church or the Church for the rubrics I?which of the two is to be preserved, and which surrendered I [From the Morning Herald.] PttsTisM.?We have heard, and we believe the statement to be substantially correct, that the archbishop and bishops have lately interchanged several communications upon the propriety of tak togaome steps tor the complete extinction of the ?AC?r!ia!11 8jh,?m; ,he n,oat reverend and right reverend lords had taken the advioe of the public, inoludingall the most zealous and sincere mend* of the Church, thvv would have long ago adopted V.ep aa V which il 18 now Mid they !;eLt? however, unjust to the most f reverend bench, at least to the fo the^oui^ ?kiCk"Cea ,hc difficulties opjiosed taken A ? ,8' We lrU8V now aboul ,0 he O a rreVt M???to.y not merely the H?wvTnd l.r,'? 88 ,Hearly a".

" " BishopitOwe, Nov. 10, 1B44. Rev and Deab Brethren,?I address you on a subject of very deep n.t-rwt to us sll?the diversity of practice in the worship of Almighty God?which, in concurrence with other unhappy caus. s, has threatened t? involve us ?Su 0 P,'n u'1' ksd almost said perilous disunion. That the mischief has not been felt so stronaly in this diocese as in some others, while it calls for our especial t0 Almighty God, may, we hopa, be ascribed in no small measure to warm and stoady attachment lo ihe Church on the part ot the laity, and not less, I rejoice in thinking, to the general soberness and discretion of yon, the clergy. But even here we are very tit from being exempt from the common evil There sre parishes Jn Devonshire, and still more in Cornwall, in which grave misunderstandings have arisen between the minister and the peo, le, from causes for which neither he nor they hate been primarily responsible. * ' Discussions of important principles in other parts of the Church, though they found among us no vehement par tisans on either side, have led. in several instances, to very painful results. While they have excited, in many of the clergy, a livelier sense of the responsibility im posed on them by their engagements to the Church' and have made them solicitous to follow out its requisitions to their full axtent; they have at the same time indis posed the laity to the reception of any change, by exhi biting too many instance, of the fatal consequences of change, introduced, as it has elsewhere been, by private individuals, whether from simple desire of novelty, or as part of a systematic attempt to bring back our Church nearer to the coriupt usages from which it was reformed it was therefore actual experience of great, and press ing, and growing evils, which recently induced me to have recourse to the unusual, but strictly canonical ex pedient of seeking the advice of those whose ettce' aud jtaudlng, and I may truly add, whose high personat qua Itficttmos. pre eminently lit them to iorm the Council of ! their Bishop. Sixteen members of the General Chapter of the Cathe dral of Exeter, tnether with the Archdeacons of Totnes and Barnttiple (the Archdeacon of Cornwall being unfor- i Mua'ely absent through illness,) met in the Chapter Raopi, and gave to me the benefit of their united delibera ?*n?t!?er<l?tingul?hed prebendary (reluctantly dr tunad by sickness ) sent to ns his Jndgment. founded on 1 long exiterienan ia on* ?f lh? miMt p-f' -? tmnni tant districts in Cornwall. They were unanimous in deploring existing evils, and in apprehending greater. if some timely check be n? ap plied. And, if they were not unanimous in advising what that check should be, this very wantoi unanimity save to me the advantage of more fully hearing all that could be i uiwed by able and experienced men on either aid*. Alter a discussion of three hours, more than two-thirds of the whole number agreed in advising me. that the only pro per, and under God the only effectual remedy, appeared 1 to be, at once to restrain all undue change, and telook to the law aa our aole guide. Of that law, tha law of the , whole Church of England, including under that compre I henslve term not the pastor* and teachers atone but the people also?that is. the State -of that law, one mala and leading object, liuce the Reformation, has aver boon to es tablish " nnifinnity of public prayers, tod administra tion of sacraments, and other rights and ceremonies." This object, good in itsell, becomes inestimable, when we look to the evils which it alone can prevent. But uni formity, it is manifest, can only be secured by levins lown one rule. This the law has done. And, if prooeM I of time has introduced some relaxations in practice toso '"d "*the great evils we now deplore, it to a convincing proof that the true remedy for those evils must be sought i" r? turning to a faithful observance of the Act ol Uni formity. ,. Ta"?! h". to touth, every claim a law oan have, on tho dutiful and cordial obedience of ehurohmen. Based on the soundest principles, recognising and declaring tha liturgy itsell to be purely spiritual in its origin, and ap plying temporal sanctions only to enforoe the use of it, thic illustrious statute boars on it the character of a so lemn compact; by which the church, having provided for ?kPUr* tona.ot Christian worship, received for that form the assured protection and support ot tha crown, and all the estates of tha realm) a statute which, tor this very reason, to holden to be essential and iunda mental, and is so declared to be in the great constitutional aot, the sot of union between the realms of England and Scotland. " Now, I do not say that every departure from any mi ante direction ot the Book of Common Prayer, enshrined as it is in the fundamental law, deserves to be stigmatised *s a violation of the national compeot; bat I say, that the ?uty of stric t obedience to it cannot ho too atrongly felt fJP'Ir ,? 8,U' by tb* C,M*7 To this duty we pledged ourselves in our ordination vowa. We renewed that pie go, ao often as we undortooh the cure of souls 2T .??*? ?,heryi'? admitted to terra in any other office h. the house ot God To-he strict tolfilmit, thereiore, of that duty, no faithf 1 minister of God's word will think it a hardship that bto bishop should now recall him. He will, rather, gladly recognise tho fitness of recurring to it, at a time of general d?ubt and diflloulty, as tha one the only role, by which our practice in public prayer can bs honestly or safely regulated. And, white a willing and hearty obedience to thus con fidently anticipated from the clevgy, con we apprehend i loos ready acquiescence ia the same eourse on the part of the laity.? Assuredly not-provided that we previously instruct them in the nature of tho obangas introduced, and of the reason for which thay are introduced-not from love of change, but to prevent change-to enable ua, at length, to find a rest for ourselves amidst the floctu ation of usages around us, and to find it ia strict obe. diet st to tho law. Need I add, that thii vary purpose o( ensuring stability as well as uniformity in our public worship, ia tha very end and object of the ttatute, ae thus declared in Its pre amble?'* In regard that nothing rendnceth mere to the settling of the peace of this nation (which Is desired of all good men) nor to the honor ol our religion and the prope gation thereof, than an universal agreement in the public worship of Almighty Ood j and to the intent that every person within this realm may eortainly know the rale to which be is to conform in public worship, and adminis tration of Ihe sacraments, and other rites and ceremonies of tha Church ol England." For these reasons I scruple aot to address you all in the language af most sanest entreaty-entreaty which I thankfully acknowledge, after too experience of 14 years, you have never yet disregarded, but which I now put forth with far greater anxiety than I ever before testified -that you will all concur with mo In discountenancing every attempt lo divide ns into parties, by rendering a steady, Uniterm, and paocrfnl obedience to the laws of the church, especially in ali that relate* to the public worship of Almifhty G enjoined in the Rubric ot the Book of Common Prayer.

Yesterday, (London, Dec. 5.) the marriage of I hie Excellency Baron Nteumann,the Austrian Min i!,f k*dy Somerset, eldest daugh Vl of Beaufort, was solemnised The nuptial ceremony was first performed ac cording to the form of < he Roman Catholic Chuich. at the Austrian Embassy, Chnndos House, in the presence of a large circle of the relatives and friends of both connections. FJ?h ^ ?k?f ^fUln?*'??Vhia Excellency the Ambassador and Conntesa de ^t. Au ?,*K*?,l'rncy Baron Bruoow, his Exceilen CjJrn d* Fa".0' of AbrrdrenVltnd Marchioness of Atleabury, <fce. arrived shortly be lore 10 o'clock, at Changs Hou^, in order to b* P^nt tne performance of the naptiala and The Duke and Duchess of Beaufort, accomrani rd by his fair bride, and the Marquis of Worcester and some youthful branches of their family, came from Beaufort House precisely at 10 o'clock. ^c.ellfnrCX B*,ron Nieumann, immediately on the Duke of Beaufort's arrival, descended from tne embassy and handed his betrothed from the carnage. After the lapse of about five minutes the wedding party repsired to the aaloon, where the marriage ceremony was performed in accordance with the forma of the Church of Rome. The Rev Dr Grif fiths, vicar apostolic of the district of London, was tne officiating clergyman. r The bride was attended by her youthful sisters. Lady Blanche and Lady Rose Somerset, and the daughters of Loid Fuzroy Somerset, brother of the Uuke of Beaufort, and consequently cousins of the bride. The wedding having concluded, as far as regard ed the solemnitv at Chandos House, the circle ad journed to St. George's Church, Hanover Square where it was appointed the marriage shouldbe ao lemnized according to the forms prescribed by the Established Church. It was before eleven o'clock when the wedding party reached St. George's Church, and the morn ing prayers not being terminated, there was a tri fling delay. The ordinary service having ceased, the bride was conducted to the altar by the Duke of Be?u fort, followed by the bridal train before alluded to. His Excellency Baron Nieumann next proceeded and took the opposite side. The Duke of Welling ton, with the Countess de St. Aulaire resting on his arm, advanced to the communion table, the Duchess of Beaufort and other immediate members of the family congregating around The Rev. G. Wellealey, rector of Strathfieldaaye. and nephew of the Duke of Wellington, performed the ceremony?there being present precisely the same circle of relatives and friends as at the Aus trian embassy, a list of whom it is quite unneces sary to repeat. Owing to the marriage at that church having been studiously kept a secret, it being at first stated the marritge was to have been performed by special lioenae, the attendance of strangers was far from numerous, there not being, probably, more than 200 persons in the church, including tne parties in terested in the performance of that sacred cere mony. The bridesmaids were all attired uniformly in chaste costumes of pink and white. The toilette of the bride was a dress of Magnificent damas d Isly, trimmed with deep flounces of rich point lace, ornamented with bouquets of orange blossom, the body and sleeves trimmed with point lace and bouquets to correspond; coiffure composed of a wreath of orange flowers and myrtle; the entire toilette covered by superb and costly point lace, with a profusion of diamonds and pearls, the latter gems predominating. At the conclusion of the religious ceremony the noble bride and bridegroom went to Beaufort House, and subsequently proceeded to the neigh borhood of Windsor, for a short time before leav ing for the Continent. We understand that on account of the lamented demise of her Royal Highness the Prince* Sophis Matilds of Gloucester, there was no wedding Hrjtu ntr at Beaufort Houss, as of course the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Gloucester and the Hereditary Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Mecklinburgh Strelitz, could nst attend. The noble baron and baroness depart in the course of the ensuing week for Florence, the baron having been appointed minister from ths Emperor of Austria to the court of the Grand Duke of Tus cany. On Wednesday, we have reassn to believe, the presents to the fair bride from their Royal High neFaesthe Duke and DuchessofC unbridge.DucheM of Gloaoester, and the Hereditary Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Mecklenbvrgh Streluz, compri sing some superb bijouteru, were laid out for in spection in the yellow saloon at Beaufort House previous to their being packed up and conveyed to Italy. The troumau of the bride is said to be of I the costliest description. 1 English Theatricals, dec. PaxtxirTATioN or a Pivck or Plat* to Mk. Balf*. tub Compossk ?On the 7ch ult Drury Lane Thea'ie was crowded to excess by pnrties de sirous of witnessing the presentation of s mastive piece of plate to Mr Balfe, on the hundredth repr? sentationofthe "BohemianGirl."? Mr Bille.on his entrance into the orchestra, was loudly cheered, which was renewed with ten-fold vigor at the end of ihe opera, (The Daughter of M. Mark), loud ?nw were raised for Mr. Balfe, in the middle of I which Mr Bunn appeared with him, hand in hand ; and when the audience had " hushed" its own turbulence, the lessee delivered the following graceful speech t Ladies aod Gentlemen?I vu apprehensive, when the subject which is to form so interesting 4 teature in this nig* t's entertainments first came under consideration, that it would not be altogether proper to bring it before the public in the manner proposed on thBt occasion. I, therefore, hesitated a moment as to the part that I should take in the matter ; but, recollecting that it was I who first introduced my talented friend to the stage, I thought it was only just that I should participate in the present ovation. That favor which was ireely conceded to him on his first introduction to the public. I am happy to say still continues to be manifested lor him ; and it is with pleasure i add that the spells of his enchantment yet hold their acaustomed sway over the hearts of every audience A body of his admirers?including a large portion of the general public?having determined upon presenting him with a testimonial in honor and remembrance of the hun dredth representation ol his opere of The Bohemian Girl, this, tbe night on whichhe takes his benefit at your hands, is deemed the most fitting time to offer it to him. And while I most gratefully and most cordially thaokyouall for the kindness with which you have viewed my own humble share in that opera, I assure you that no one can feel more heartfelt gratification than I do in being the medium of introducing to you in person my excellent friend. He is now before you?the receiver is in the pre sence of the giver, and I shall " leave him alone with his fflory"to answer for himself?a task I have no doubt he will perform not alone in a much better manner but far more to your satisfaction than any other person The curtain then rose and displayed the testimo nial itself, glittering in all the pride of burnished silver, grouped picturesquely upon a table, like a Greek trophy. Mr. Balfe then proceeded to embody his grati tude in the following words:? Ladies and Gentlemen?I thank you. I am placed by Mr. Bunn in a most awkward, thungh a most enviable po anion.* I have had the honor of appearing before you several times as a composer. I hope I shall still have that honor several time* more. 1 thank you from my heart, and allow me to say that I feel deeply the excessive honor you have conferred upon me on this and on every other occasion when I have presented my sell b?fjreyou 1 am sensible of the high favor you have accorded to m*: and 1 trust that my future profeasional life shall be de voted to an untiring effort to desi rve your great bounty Ladiea and gentlemen, I now take leave of you for the present, thanking you heartily, and entertaining but one hope on earth?that of soon meeting you again under equally auspicious circumstances. These modest sentences were accompanied, at i intervals, by a good chorus on the part of the au dience ; and Mr. Balfe, making many obeisances, at length departed, laden with honors, which no one could say were empty or. undeserved. On this occasion, Mr. D s'in and his four sons present) d themselves before the commencement of the ballet, and with a set ot "silver sax-horns," (instrument* newly invented by Mr. Dstin.) played Mayer beer's "Robert toi que y'awne," following it up, by way of encore, witn Dmizrui's " Tut he a Dio.

The Conciliation Hull was not so well attended as on the previous day of meeting. Ai oae o'clock Henry Grattan, Esq., was called to the chair. Mr. O'CoaaaU then addressed the meeting. Herpalo gfsed for not btiog able to report upon the ten propesi- I liens respecting the union,which he referred ?o the com mitt*# tor illustration and proof, but ho would make the repoit after hit return trom Watertord. The prorositioi. would be preceded by the declaration of ihe principli ipon which they acted?namely, that their struggle for repeal was loundnd upon moral means, upon the u fluence ?t public opiniou. and the peaceful combination of goad men ; but the total absence of tumult or violence, and ex fusion from shedding a drop ot blood (cheers). A get tinman remarked to him that he had attended three sue-1 oeeaive weekly meetings held in Exchequer street, whe. he (Mr. O'Connell) eommenced the Catholic Aesociation Then he could hardly get fourteen persons t > meet. He lid net despair then?should he di apair now t Yet they had many obstacles to contend with-the English press. * great deal of the Scotch, and a quantity of the French orees had abused him. Toe association did not say any thing about the crafty usurper. Louis Philippe, the hypo critical minister, Guuot. the French press commencVd the attack upon him. and he wished that they would leave Ireland alone, as Irel tnd was leaving them alone. Coold tnything he more base than to seek to obtain undue favor in F.ngland by assailing the leaders of the Irish pwple, and pretending that thsy Iwould not endeavor to Uke Ireland from England even if they went to war with 'he latter country ? The French press had rt joined to hii attack, and he had a word in raply to them. He accused their matt >r, Louis Philippe, of being a tyrant and uaur per, who had violated the solemn conditions of his a-cession to the throne. He had ne title to the throne but the will of the people?the same .itle as the Queen to her crown. What he compliined of was Louis Philippe having obtains J his throne upon conditions which he had violated. There were three conditions annexed to hi" being male King : first, the liberty of the press : second the freedom ol trial by lory ; third, the maintenance ami dissemination of the blessings sf education. Every out of these was violate*! by him. Such atrocious lews were not passed against the press in any other country. As to the trial by Jury, he had parfect arrangements for packing juries, and so far from public opinion controlling the verdict of juries, he passed a law, making it criminal to publish tbe names of the juries : and aa to education, he bad framed lawe to put religious education under trammels. The Morning Chronicle in England had al*o as tailed him, and the Morning Advertiser also The latter paper had accused him ol inconsistency. It was an honest paper?neither Whig nor Tory. It apoke ita sentiment* honestly. This paper accused him ot inconsistency, and said he bad given un repeal, and a opted lederalism. It was rather herd that this paper should make an accusation against him withoat looking into the grounds upon which he made it Had tba writer referred to hie (Mr O'Connell*s) letter of the Id of Oct he would have found that he bad insisted upon tha en tirety of repeat He required that the Crown of Ireland he restored, and placed upon tbe head of their present Sovereign-that the House of Lords be reinstated in their integrity, and that the Irish House of Commore be ra constructed by 800 members. He pledged himself to no plan, but federalism with him was to commenc only after the entire simple repeal was given. He wanted ?JOs in the pound of the Irish debt, end 10s. over, in order that Ireland might be perfectly paid; and he was incon sistent if 80s were not better than 90s (Laughter) Ever D Maunseli had admitted that he (Mr O'Connell) bed not made any concession ; and the London Examiner also acknowledged that it was a mistake to assert he bad giveiLup any thing The writer of Tnit'e Magazine also saw that he required all he could get from England, and as much more as possible. The Morning Chronicle also cama out upon him with a good deal ol csjolary. Did th?v think be was so young a bird as to catch him with chafi? As to the accusation of inoonsistency, he treetrd it with the utmoat contempt. When be was looking for emancipation he was often ac cused of inconsistency. When bo found one course blocked up, and that he could not cut through the rock he went round it; but whether operating in one way or the other, be was always progressing towards emancipation He obtained emancipation by these means, and he pro mieed them that thus he would obtain a repeal of the union. The learned gentleman then adverted to passages in an article of the raminer, reflecting upon him, and commented upon them in strong langunge. That paper complained of him for praising men on one occasion, and abusing them on another. He had doneao, and would do so again. The next aoensation brought against him hy 'he Base scribe of the Examiner, was his abandonment ol the appropriation clause. He (Mr O'Couneli) advocated the appropriation clause so long aa the remotest chsnoe existed ol its being carried ; but when he found that Lord John Ru<sel| wsa likely to loss office inconsequence ol his advocacy and decided support of that measure, he did abandon the clause, because he did uot wish to see the' nobleman turned out of office?he did not think it wortb while that the whiga should have snatched trom 'hem on that aocoont, hy the torles, the reins ol governmsnt. He knew that if the whigs retained office, liberal and good men would be promoted to judgeships in Ireland, which were sxpected In the natural course of events to become vacant in the coarse ot a few brief months from that period. They would have Pigot or Brady t'hM fmtice of the Queen's Bench, and instead of Judge l.rfroy being one of the Exchequer Barons, Jackson a Judge in the Common Plana. Black hurna being Master of the Rolls, and Litton a Master in Chancery, they wonld have those places filled by liberal rind enlightened men He asked whether he could have conferred a greater benefit on the people of Ireland than ta give up his advocacy of a measure which, had it been persevered in. would nave ousted the whigs and plsee.' the lories in power. He did not think the approp'i tion olanse worth contender for; hut was that any ressoi why the writer in the Entm<nrr should hive the unjusti fiable baseness to assett that thi ahondonmcnt ot ?h. clause was a crime 7 (Hear h?ar, and cheers ) He hsr rest the base assertions and accusations of this wretrbe Examiner scribe? he had perused his attempts at anstaii. ing these assertions and accusations, and he shout I *>at> that he never cam* across a vainvr or weaker st'empt If they had ta regret and deplore tho baseness of the Eng lish press, there was some consolation te be toned In thi publications occasionally isaned from the Irish press - Ha navar read anything with greater delight than Mr John Orey Y. Porter's now pamphlet, entitled " Some Calm O^ae: vation* upon Irish Aff.iira," and it bad alTerdad him inch aiDceralaatiataction that ha would move the in aertion of aeme extracts therefrom on the minutes of their proceedings. In hia preiace, Mr Porter said, " I wish to raise my country either to her full, fair share in partnership with Britain In the kor ore, and management, and advantages of the Hiberno-British empire; or by slow and sure steps to the dignity of an independent Slate."? (Hear, hear) He did not mean to have that paragraph inserted in the record of their minntas, because the asso ciation were taking measures to raise Ireland not to the dignity of an independent State, but to repeal the union? the continnanee of which would inevitably lead to the severance of all connection between the two countries. They were laboring to gain for Ireland legislative assis tance. They desired to preserve inviolable their connec tion with England. There waa no danger of a severance so long as he exercised any influence over the people of Ireland; but when he waa gone to hia cold grave, when he was summoned to render aa account before the throue of mercy, no doubt the young (pints of Ireland will not endure a continuance or the union with E. gland?they will not continue the slaves and seifs of that country, and the conaequence of their determination probably maybe a social revolution, most horrible, frjentfril and calami tous in its results. Mr. O'Connell then proceeded to read those passages from the pamphlet whieh he coniidered worthy of ineer tion on the minutes. The first was the dedication, in which Mr. Porter styled Mr. W. g. O'Brien "tbo Bayard of true Irishmen?chevmlitr sunt pew et sens rrwroeht."? Then, again, " I with to eitzhlish. in practice and optaai ion. in law and in society, that the islands of Great Britain and of Ireland are the base of the /Memo-British em pire ; end there people are always equal, ceteris pen*us, in its honors, management and advantage# " " in the spe oial circumstances of Ireland the state sheuld enter into friendly connection, and on equal terms with the religiena ministers of the Presbyterians of the Episcopalian Protes ts s, and ef the Roman Catholics; and shr uld begin by degrees to take the necessary steps." Mr. O'Connell. ha ving read several other paseages and extolled their sent] merits, proceeded to say the time was coming when Pro le* tan t spirit and patriotism should combine in firm, but peaceful determination. to prevent the posaibility of social revolution, and give them such a revolution as that of 1789 -bloodless, stainless, and without a crime. There waa one passage more in the pamphlet to which bo would advert. The learned gentleman then read a passage In which the writer observed that the ascendancy of Eng land over Ireland upou paper in practice and epin ion must be utterly destroyed, together with Protec tant ascendancy, root and branch. Was it not delight ful that they had snch a Protestant pamphlet ? And happy was he that the old agitators were ceiled upon to mitigate and mollifv the over great ardour of tbetr Pro testant brethren The plsn of Mr Porter, however, waa not a very practicable one, hot he was entitled to the heartfelt gratitude of Ireland, and if two or three more ?uch men aa Smith O'Brien Joined him, the game would he won, and the country free Every man should regis ter?every locality have its reading room. The repeal wardens were to re organise and begin a new plan on the 1st of January, 1846, and who knew but helore the 1st of fanuary, 1846. they would have an hnrrah for the par liament on College Orecn 7 (cheers) If 60 gentlemen, atich a* Mr. Porter, were met at the bead of the people on Tara Hill, and drew up a petition to the < fleet?^?? we, the undersigned men of fighting age, with 600 000 at our hack, implore of you to be so kind, good, and condes cending as to give us our own again," repeal would bo carried. They should recollect that even the boys of 11 years old in Ireland had a disposition to quarrel occa sionally. and that they had abundant of physical force, which, thank Ood, they would never use. The learned gentleman concluded his speech with his usual perora tion about Irish rigl.ts and beauties. At half-past four o'clock the association was adjourned. Rent for the week, 8381 8s 3d.

The manufacturers of Glasgow have held a meeting at which resolutions were passed to pre? the question of the abolition of the import duty on cotton wool upon the legislature next session, but we find nothing new in their facts or arguments Their reasoning is founded upon the per ceutsge which the duty bears to the price of cotton avool of lowest qualities at the present low prices, and npon the low numbers of the yarn spun from it, by which they appear to make out a strong case.
