NEW YORK HERALD. New York, WrdiitMlaj, February '40, 1H49. The Texas Question?'THe United States a New Kleuient In ICnropean Politics. The decision of the Texas question in the affir ni.itive, by the Senate, appears now to be certain. Precipitated by i variety of citcumstances which happened to concur at this late period in the session of Congress, the important crisis, which was after a'l, sooner or later, inevitable, has at length arri ved, and the first decisive step taken in a course of policy which must lead to nnghty events, affecting the destinies, not of this country alone, but of all the great nations of the earth. To the intelligent and thoughtful observer, the Texas movement has been mainly interesting; not in its mere local bearings, but oa account of the mightier movements and influences which it indicated. And, indeed, it is only by the calm and philosophic mind, that forms its opinions and con clusions altogether independent of mere party or local views, that any one of the great political questions of the time is discerned in all its bear ings and consequences. Thus this Texas question, which to the narrow-minded partizans of all fac tions has been merely the local question of a day, on which to build their intrigues and despicable schemes ot sell-aggrandizement, is, to the man that stands aloof from the squabbles of parties, and regards ihe progress of events with a clear and comprehensive vision, a proof and token of a new era m the world's politics?the direct and tang ble evidence of the controlling power which this Re public is beginning to exert on the policy and di plomacy of the monarchical governments of the old world. The United States have now en tered as a new element into the political af fairs of Europe, soon to contend for that mas tery in the struggle for the possession of the balance of power amongst the great nations of the earth, to which republican France made such formidable pretensions, but ceuld not sustain. Separated from the nations of the old world by the everhsting barrier of the ocean, and this position, as well as its vast internal sources of enduring streng h, secured, as France never could have been, in the possession of the means of wielding a pre ponderating influence, this country is yet, by means of steam navigation, enabled to operate directly on the world beyond the Atlantic, speaking with a voice that must be heard, and giving a direction to all political movements affecting the relations of European powers towards each and itself. Such is the attitude in which this republic is presented by the annexation of Texas. The hostility of Great Britain to this measure, arose not because so many square miles of addi tional territory were by it to be added to the broad domains of the republic, but because the act would announce to the world, the position and power ol this free government, and bring it in direct colli sion with her, in the great contest for the balance of pdWer. And in fact and in truih, the annexa tion ot Texas is the first decisive event in the strug gle between this country and the monarchical dynasties of the European world. This contest must sooner or later come to a trial of physi cal strength. It may be years before the day of conflict come, but c?me it must Oregon must be occupied. The Gulitornias must be annexed. England will not, without re sistance, sutler all this. Local parties in both countries will find it to their advantage to foster , feelings of animosity, and the crisis which we have i indicated may be precipitated much sooner thar. ! many may now be incline? to imagine. The com j piereial interests may endeavor to avert a colli- j sion, but their influence in Congress is compara tively feeble. We have already seen in the pro gress of this Texas movement how powerless are all the influences which may array themselves against the feelings and decisions of the great pop alar masses. The subject is fertile in the extreme, and we shall have heiealter frequent occasion of develop ing more fully the important views which it sug gests relative to the future destiny of this countiy ?its progress, growth and prosperity?and its in fluence in extending the blessings of free govern ment throughout the world. The Postage Bill.?So then, after all, the Post age Bill has been taken up in the House of Re presentatives, and there is comfortable assurance of its being made law. And yet this great mea sure of universal interest and value, has only es caped by the narrowest chance in the world being thrown overboard at this session of Congress ? We believe that the country will have to thank the independent press for the passage of this Bill In the squabbles and intrigues of the mere party politicians, the public interests are uniformly for gotten, or thought oi only when they can possibly be made to serve the "base uses" of partisanship But in this case the independent newspaper press has so perseveringly pressed the subject of postage reform, that the political tricksters and traders j have been obliged to yield, and we trust now to be able, very soon, to congratulate the country on the | success of its patriotic and unabated efforts. The Texas Meeting in Tammany Hall Last | Night ?We give to day a copious and faithful re- ! port ol the proceedings at Tammany Hall last night, i These Texas meetings are now noticeable chiefly I as they indicate the activity, tquabbles, and in- ; trigues of the various cliquet of office beggars. They | are all intended merely for effect at head quarters, ; and it is really laughable to observe (he struggling* which take place for a chance to repeat some ol I ihe old "catechism," as Mike Walsh calls it, about ! Texas. The people have already decided the ques tion, and that too in spite of not a few of those who are now loudest mouthed in its favor. The ! enthusiasm with which Mr. Calhoun's name was received by the meeting was remarkable, almost ; matching in intensity the feeling displayed by the groans and hisses on the mention of Governor Wright in the same place a few weeks since. The two facts present a striking commentary on the fu rious declarations mad*- by some of the democra tic organs about the " harmony " of the party. i Demonstration in Favor or Texas annexa tion ?In pursuance of a resolution passed at a meeting of the Polk and Dallas Club of the Third Ward, on the 2Lt inst, there was a meeting of this body last evening at the Washington Lunch, Washington street, when the association proceed ed to Jersey ci'y, where oue hundred gunH were fired in favor ol immediate annexation of T? xas, amid the cheers of a considerable concour*e of persons assembled on the occasion. Two or three brief addresses were delivered, and every tning went off, as far as we could ascertain, to the ut most satisfaction of the parties concerned. It seems that his Honor the Mayor, prohibited the firing in this city? h e the cannonading in New Jersey. Progress 01 the City ?The growth of the city iti the upper wards is, astonishing. Whole streetso! magnificent dwelling houses have been erected in the vicinity of ITnionSquare within the last year,and some half dozen * legani churches are in process ot erection in the same neighborhood. The Fifth Avenue is rapidly filling up, . id in the course of i few ysars will be one of the finest streets on the continent. Fourteenth H'.r< <'t, running from river ?o river, is a noble thoroughfare and is now nearly the centre of the fashionable faubourg*, whilst a year or two since it was quite the boundary line of the city in that direction Then i n ihe banks of the Hudson, "the village" as it ts still called, with its numerous hustling and crowded streets, extends tor miles, and will soon reach the Hariem Rivtr. So thrivna the Paris of the American continent? ? ?ar after year wiring greater in population, in wealth, in commerce, in civilization, in refinement, n folly, and in wickedness Attacks on the Nrw Yobx Pilot?.?Another of the Wall street prints, thff Courier and Knyuirtr, has jtined in the crusade, asper agreement, against our pilots. That paper of yesterday, published a long article containing the usual Wall street as sertions, an analysis of *%hich shows them to be entirely destitute of truth We have taken some trouble to examine into the statement relative to the Priuceton, and find it to be Idlse from the beginning to its end; and Mr. Freeborn, the pilot, who had charge of her, has sent us the following note, which corroborates all that we have heaid on the subject. To show how absurd the statement ol the Courier really is, it is only necessary to mention that the (Jomrnerce, the New Jersey pilot boat, that spoke the Princeton, and supplied her with Mr. Charles White, went ashore in three hours after, and became almost a complete wreck. But Mr. Freeborn's note speaks for itself New Yoke, February jatii, 1944. To the Ebitor o? the Hkrald : Dear Sir?1 taw in the Courier and Enquirer ot thii day, aa article relating to the New York Pilott. in which are contained tome statement* about me, at destitute of truth at most ot the malicious attack* we teem destined to sul fer from unprincipled presses. It it stated that " when the U 3. steamer Princeton ctme off the Hook, during the severe easterly gale and snow stoim of the 4th inst.. the took a New York pilot, but did noi venture in Aftei wardt, a signal lor a pilot being made by the ship, a Jer sey pilot fan down, put one ol her pilots, Charles White on hoard, and next day he brought the ship in " If the Courier will persist in assailing the New York uiJots, it ohuuld endeavor to state the truth about them. The precoding assertions are without foundation. I went to sea in the Princeton as pilot on the 33d January ult., and by request of Captain Stocaton remained on board during the cruise of fourteen days; a coast pilot (Mr. Fuller) being also employed during the tame period. The ship arrived on the coast the night the violent snow stoim commenced. It was deemed advisable to stand oil shore, because it was utterly impossible to come in, espe cially with a ship drawing nineteen feet of water. The Sheffield in attempting to get in went ashore Mr Fullet and myself remained on deck all night in the snow, until he and myself were exhausted The next morning we made the beach, but it was blowing so hard, and the wea thrr was m> thick that it was determined to haul off again. About this time a pilot boat hove in sight, and Caidaii. Stockton considering me worn out, recommen led obtain ing another pilot to assist me It ton* not then known whether the hoot in sight was a Xew York or Jersey hoot She came alongside, Captain Stockton asked if the pilot boat could go ahead and a >und thu bur, to which the Jer sey pilot answered that he could not?it would be very dangerous Mr White wss then asked if he could find the bar, and he raid '' No " Then Captain Stockton said, " As you are here, you can assist Mr. Freeborn." Mr. White was then taken on board No attempt waa then made to get in but to get off because the wind was blow ing m gale on shore. The ship went off about 30 miles from the bar, and it was not until next morning about day-light, that we stood in for the land. At 1 P.M., when it was low water. I told Captain Stockton in answer to a question, that I intended to go in, which I accordingly did. it will thus be seen that the Princeton did not come oil the Hook, and then take a New York pilot, nor did the Jersey man pilot take her in. It is a little remarkable that Captain Stockton should he supposed, to want confidence in me, when he knew that I had piloted the Princeton out and in sixteen times before tbe cruise above mentioned. 1 beg you to publish this statement, and have no doubt you will, because your paper bat evinced aditpotition to be just towards the New Yoik Pilots, which I would be happy to sec imitated. TH03. FREEBORN, New York Pilot. Another statement that there are only eighteen Jersey pilots, and that " with one-fourth of the strength the New Jersey pilots pilot one-fourth of the vessels" is equally as wild and absurd us thai of the Princeton. It is difficult to tell, with any certainty, how many Jersey pilots there are, hut we have been assured that there are forty or fifty, if not more. We have, however, very little to do with the number of Jersey pilots. It matters not whether there be ten or twenty in existence, or whether they be skilful or not. All that we have now to touch upon, apart from the falsehoods of the Wall street prints, is the unconstitutionality of the law of Congress of 1837. Those who have examined into the matter feel its injustice as well as the pi lots themselves do, and its unconstitutionality no one questions. The existing pilot law of this State gives us plenty of competition,and any one at all acquainted with the business of pilotage of this port, can plainly enough see the enterprise of our pilots. They need no stimulus from a neighboring State. The Streets and the Weather.?Every body remembers how thrillingly Dtbden has sung aboui the "Sweet little cherub that sits up aloft," to takt care ol the soul of" "poor Jack." It would seen as if some equally watchful and benevolent spiri above occasionally took charge of the streets o New York. Recently there was every reason t< dread the breaking forth of some pestilential fevei from the indiacribably filthy state of our thorough fares, but down came a deluge of rain from the heavens, and in a single night the streets were cleansed of the filth and impurities which hsc been accumulating lor months. The city now ac tually looks like the abode of civilized human be ings. The side-walks on Broadway are positively clean, and down town the crossiags are passible Yesterday the air was balmy as in the month of May, and the gentle breezes, soft and fresh, "sent into the heart a summer feeling " Broadway was a moving panorama of fashion, beauty, elegance, millinery, folly and loaferism ? Winter, like the "natives," appears to be fairly broken up. Insulting Ladies :n Omni busses ?A lady was recently grossly insulted in one of the omnibusses in the upper part of Broadway, by a brute in the garb of a gentleman. They were the only pasaengers, and the lady screamed to the driver to atop, but he did not pay the least attention to her, driving ra pidly, a distance of several blocks before he per mitted her to get out. Thia is another remem brancer cf the infidelity of the "natives" to their pledges. A reform of the omnibus system was one of the most necessary measures connected with the Police of this city, but it has never been hinted at by the miserable imbeciles in the Corporation. These omnibusses are now nuisances rather than means of public accommodation, and we trust that the whigs, if they succeed in the next election, will at once correct all the present abuses of the omnibus-system. Summer Weather and Navigation.?We were yesterday in the midst of watm, June weather. Ii has carried off the snow and the ice and opened all the streams and rivers in thia vicinity. The Hudson is open to Albany and steamers will begin to run regularly in a day or two. And the Chesa peake and Delaware Canal is free for navigation The Troy Whiff of Monday has the following paragraph :? The ice broke away yesterday in front of the docks, bat stopped below the city. The water has risen several fart ami is over iha wharves in many places. The Mo hawk is running out quite rapidly. The Hartford CowratU of the same day has the following :? The melting of the snow has caused a considerable rit" in the Connecticut, and the heavy rain ot yesterday and last night will undoubtedly mxkt a farther riie to ()sy. On Saturday night and yeaterday the water rose about eighteen inchea, and tut evening waa sixteen feet above low water mark The Ice moved off below the bridge yesterday and went out ol light, but was probably stopped at Pratt's Perry, as the old les Is crowded togeth er there in great quantities. It started several time* above the bridge, but made very little progreas. A continu ance of two or three daya of warm weather will re lease it. I Mammoth River Stkambr.?One of the "mile long steamers" building by Mr- Wm Brown of this city, is to be called the St. Nicholas. Her entire length will be 340 feet, and 36 feet broad. She is to have 12 feet stroke. Stkamshit Hirkrnia will leave Boston on Satur- I d ty for Liverpool. Her letter bags will close in this city on Friday. Steamer Patsaio ?This fine boat is to re-take her place on the Newark route. Canada Parliament.?It >s stated that the Cana dian Parliament will be prorogued to-day or to morrow. Sir Charles Metcslle, it is further said, is preparing to return to England. The-Neoeo Discussion ? Mr. Grant and Dr Smith reauma their discuMion cf Ihe relative capa cities of the white and black races for civilization, at ttie Society Library, this evening. Great cry and plenty ol wool. O'CoNNULL AND THK PofI?STATE OF IrELaND? Repeal, the last intelligence from Europe informed us,had got a from a rery unexpected quarter, the Pope himself having i?ued a mandatory epis tie by which the Irish priesthood are prohibited Irom taking any part in political agitation. Thit letter was addressed from the Propoganda to the flight Rev. Dr. Croly, Roman Catholic Bishop of Armagh, and was published by that prelate in reply to a statement of O'Conneli, denying its authenti city. It has naturally produced ihe greatest degree of excitement, and we now annex the document as translated: Men Illustbioo and Rkvkbknd Sib : Your grace will recollect that 011 the 13ih of Match, 1839, Utters were ad dressed to you by this Sacred Congregation, in which it waa atTenuoualy recommended to you, in the name of oui Most Sacred Lord, Pope Gregory XVI, that, if what was reported to ua continued, you should suggest more nobei conduct to one or two dignitaries of the Church, and to many of the inferior clergy of that kingdom, who were represented to ua aa addressing themselves too much to political matters, and imprudently discussing before the l>eople the civil affairs of the country; and that you should diligently urge them to adopt a course of conduct more in accordance with their holy office. The Sacred Con gregation does not doubt that you have exerted yourself with all assiduity for that purpose, and that you have em ployed that energy which the importance of the subject required, and wbich was to be expected from your obe dience to the Apostolic See. But that the desired results have not attended the care you have bestowed on it ap pears particularly from the public journals of those dis tricts in which discourses are reported to bave been re cently held by some of tbe priests, and even by some ol the bishops, as well at public meetinga and dinners, ua in the churches, which, unquestionably, if the fact be so. are fir irom showing that they are solely intent, aa they ought to be, upon the salvation oi souls, the good of reli gion, and the bonor of God, or that they estrange them aelvea from temporal concerns and the contests ot politi cat pat tie* It must not be concealed that this is tbe more offensive to the Sacred Congregation and to the Most Sa cred Lord himself, because it tends to the hurt aud dis grace of the ecclesiastical body, and even causes injury to tbe Apostolic See, aa if, little solicitous to enforce tbe wholesome admonition* given to those clergymen, it favored the conduct alluded to, or at least connived at it. Your grace may, perhaps, be unaware that this is not the only time ground baa been afforded for such complaints, or rather accusation*; but the Apos tolic See is greatly grievrd by tbe sad experience ol them. For this reason tbe Sacred Congregation hastens again to address you, at tbe dictation of our Moat 8acred Lord, upon this most momentous subject. You know perfect ly, most excellent prelate, tbe nature and character cl the ecclesiastical office ; and bow necessary it is, and ol what importance 10 the maintenance of religion, thu< 'hose who are engaged in its boly duties, the peaceful ministers of their king, the guardians ol the mysteries ol G>d, and charged with the apiritual guidance of the laith lul, should in no wise mix themselves up with secular ccncerns;that they should sedulously foster among the peo pie that tranquillity and peace which ia the bond of Cbria tianity? tha> they should inculcate obedience to the teat poral authorities in all tbinga relating to civil concerns, both bythair examples and their precepts?and that propo sing to themselves exemplary prudence and moderation preaching only Christ and him crucified, they should moat studiously avoid whatever may even lightly excite or agitate the Aock committed to them, or seduce it from the mildness of the Gospel. Such is and ever has been the doctrine of the Catholic Chu>ch, which the Apostolic See has never ceased to deliver from the sanctity ol its office, aud to urge upon every occaaioa that atisea. It will be your part, then, most excellent air, to walk sedu lously in these footsteps ;,and in all charity and patieaci severely to admonish as many of the clergy, more espe cially of the rank of bishop, whom you shall observe Id any respect acting at variance with the judgment declar ed on ao imiiortant a subject by the Sacred Congregation and by hia Holiness. Entrusting this matter to your well approved wisdom and anxious care, I heartily proffer >on my esteem, and supplicate all happiness for you from God "At Romo: from the House of the Sacred Congregation of the Propaganda, the 16th ot October. 1844. "T. PH CARD. FRANSONIUS, Prefect. "JOANNES BRUNELLI, Secretary." This is plAin enough in all conscience, and must at once put an end to the agency of the priesthood in the work ot agitation. O'Conneli, however, takes the ground that the missive is not canonical ?that it treats of matters purely "temporal," and is, therefore, to be regarded as utterly null and void. The church, however, thinks otherwise lor the "rescript" was read in Synod, and the Catholic Prelates oi Ireland in council, resolved to enforce its mandates upon the inferior clergy. On the other hand, a great clamor has been raised by the repeal leaders, and re-echoed by the masses about the interference of his Holiness in the temporal affairs of Ireland, and very disobedient mutierings are heard in all quarters. But the priests must,of ne cessity, obey, and we may now safely conclude that the work of agitation ia virtually at an end The priesthood were the main a.lies of O'Conneli, and deprived of their aid, his powers of mischief will be completely clipped. This is a consummation gratifying in the extreme to all true iriends of the Irish people?the sacred cause oi their rights and liberties once fairly delivered from the prostituting clutches of a mercenary hypocrite, will in due time triumph. Italian Opera.?Palmo has not leased his thea tre to De Begins, as is stated in some of the papers, but the veteran Figaro is very busy drawing up plans, and concocting schemes, and entering into negotiations for the re-establishment of Italian Opera in this city. The Signor's plan is on a mag nificent scale. He proposes to engage four prime donne?two soprani, and two contraiti, two " first rate" tenori, four basai, two bassi cantanli, and two primi buffi; also, two "excellent" securuic donne, one second tenor and one second basso. He has negotiated with Pico and Sanquirico, who ex press a readiness to enter into the project, and Val tellina, it is supposed, will also coincide. New operas are to be produced, including II don Giovan ni, II Matrimonio di Figaro, the two chef d'auvre of Mozart. Such is the project of De Begnis, who, having settled his late " affair" with the brigadier-poet, by bringing the latter to his knees, is now devoting all his energies to carry it out. The plan certainly looks admirably. The Signor has had great expe rience as a manager of ihe Opera, and he has our best wishes for his success. We have even now amongst us materials for an excellent operatic company?Madame Otto, Madam Arnault, and ad mirable Rapetti, and others. A good scheme for the re-construction of Italian Opera, energetically carried out, ought to succeed and must succeed.? So, let the Signor go ahead. Palmo's Theatre.?Last evening the burlesque opera of "La! Som Am De Beauties," taken from the opera of " La Somnambula," was re peated at this establishment, and elicited roars ot laughter from a numerous and highly respectable audience. Mrs. Phillips and Sharpe in the charac ters ot Dinah Crow and Rosa, exhibited their mu steal powers to a great extent, which called forth the applause of those present. The tenor parts ol Mr. Holman told well, particularly in the duetts with Mrs Phillips. Messrs. Lynch Hnd Murphy also acquitted themselves well in their respective characters, exciting considerable laughter by their comic humnr. Mr* Kavanagli as prime basso war equally successful, and his good bass voice told well in the chorusses. Mr. Kneass, the director, deserves every credit for his arrangement of th< music. The new piece promises to be a siii> greater favorite with the public, particularly the mirth and music loving portion of it, than the " Virginia Girl,"and is well worth seeing. There are other entertainments between the acts equally novel and interesting. Wklch's National Ctacrs.?It appears that the General can neither prolong his stay at the Park, nor enlarge the theatre, so us to accommodate al> those who are desirous of witnessing the perfor. mancc of the national equestrian melo-drama ol " Mad Antony Wayne." For the last two eve nings the house has been a regular jam, and all the best scats are already engaged for the remain der of the week; so that those who are desirous of seeing this able company,'had better be in time, i this is positively the last week but one of their performing in this city for some time to come. The M. Pi. Jas. Gordon Bennett, Esq.? Can you inform the public whether it is, or it not imperative on the Municipal Police of this city to exhibit the characteristic letters of their situation! That there would be a distinguishing badge was universally known previous to the present Police organization, but this knowledge did not restrain the greedy cormorants for office from pursuing any and every means to procure an np pointment, and now that their rapacity isgratifivri, will Mayor Harper permit his fellow citizens to be insulted by the pomposity of this honorable corps, who will not drign to afford the facilities ol dis tinction when uigent necessity demands it ! Yours, respectfully, Observer. Another ?root Pro-Teiu Domonotrotlow TUe Democracy a|aln In Motion. Tammany Hali last night was a scene of extreme enthusiasm. Previous to the door of the great room being thrown open, denae masses ol the people assembled about the precincts of the build ing, in the hall, and wherever the laBt chance was presented, of getting a favorable position tor hear ing as soon as admission was practicable. A re gular tush took place up stairs, and but a lew mo ments elapsed before there was no place found for any accession to the numbers. On motion of Alderman Charlicx, Daniii. Li Briggu, Esq., was unanimously chosen President Alter thanking the assemblage for the honor con ferred upon him in very brief terms, two \ ice Presidents and one Secretary for each of the wards of the city were selected. The call of the ntf1'''* was then read and approved, and a aeriesi of reso lutions were submitted strongly in lavor ?t the in mediate and unconditional annexation ot lexas, which were adopted with acclamation, ine rre bident then introduced Mr E. 8. Deary, who said?Fellowcitisens, 1 need not tell you that 1 am highly gratified with the manner;in which yoa have called upon me to speak ; and I am never silent when my democratic Inenda dech-e thatl should lay anything. And, gentlemen, on ths-ub jc .

We have required repeatedly of those sent in the capacity of public servants to do their duty in this le hd< ct, and according to the decree of the people , an 1 we wait with fearful anxiety to know it those placed in the prouiTposition of our del/gat" the ambition of man can aspire to?will do their duty If the Senators from this and other States ^'.^J^^esen itv ot feeling with us and our party, they will not deaert us?thev will not desert their country now.

Gentlemen, we passed through a fearfal combat We had everything ?o struggle sgaiDSt. Our enemies placed before the peo nle all that wealth and aristocracy could produce to be guile them ol their senses. But they loved their country. and they declared that they would stand by democracy HDd its champions, and that so long as they fearlessly and honestly brought forward good measures, they would sustaiu and carry them. We pledged ourselves to carry Texas and il we are cheated and circumvented by whig gerv in the Senate, the day is not far distant when oui will shall be accomplished by a democratic Senate ; (pro longed cheers ) and the men who now dare to oppose and thwart the people's wishes, will, ere long, find themsetve in a i osi ion most uncomfortable. (Cheers ) Gentlemen, I am pleased to appear before you tonight.because that ,du riDg the last campaign, forthe purpose of carrying out certain results I had In view, I had, in some degree, to wauderfrom the course of the majori y of the democrat! in this city ; but 1 was honest in my purpose, and, in ar riving at it, I found the men who stigmatized me as a trai tor, stricken with consternation at the nomination ol J K Polk, (Cheers ) Gentlemen, I have been irom boy hood and I shall hope to remain, the unbouuded admirer of J C. Calhoun. (Loud and long continued cheering foi .everal minutes ) Gentlemen, that name s -ems to come homo to the hearts of you all?to the old walls of jam many, and find a response just such as I expected from honest men. (Renewed cheering) It is a name that will liv? aa long as our country's annals. He is a man pos sessed of ell the purity of character that the young men of this country can look up to. With sterling democra tic feelings, he is ready to yield up lifeandfevery thing to secure the rights, vindicate the honor and integrity of the American people, (great applause ) before he would nllow them to be tarnished. Gentlemen, he has had a finger, or a hand, if you will, in this Texas business, and wo can. not but admire the consummate ability with which he. its naster-spirit, carried that measure through all its difflcul ties sour. Watch his actions?read his dispatches? and you will find them essentially Ametican?American b. yond every thing else ; hurling baek at England all the vile insinuations and inuendoes she brings against th? annexation policy. (Chears.) He has discharged his duty thus far, and we are all united in giving him credit for his performance. We are all united; we have tiiumphed thus lar, and we now meet to avow tha' one of the cardinal principles of our party shall be carried out to completion. Gentlemen, our voice from old Tammany, and responded to by the whole country, ami I trust that the peal which goes forth to night will tell the gentlemen at Washington, will show them that the democracy will yet avenge themselves if right be no: done to Texas?(Cheers ) Gentlemen, they can make no mistake about this matter. This is a large and en husiaslic meeting, and called by the sanction of the de mocratic republican committee of this city?that is or thodox enough surely. (Cheers and laughter.) Gentle men, we ask to-night, by your resolutions, thst the d?mo crati'c Senators at Washington ihall pause erethay hur' themselves id to an abyss out of which they never eai emerge, if they are instrumental in defeating unnexatioi in this session. That is one request as friends, and let them listen to us as such?but wc also tell them that wt are their enemies,if they do not go with us now. (Cheers ) Gentlemen, they have had a warning. We can point t evidences of the power of the democracy, to many mei who were among our brightest and best, but beeausi they diverted us they tell into ignominy and disgrace. (Cheers.) You now find them wearing the trappings an ' nadges ol our enemies, and acting the part ol spies in their oamp?opposing Oregon and Texas?but these w? must and will have But,Gentlemen, there ia one part ot the people of this country who have a good deaf to sa< ou this question, and that is the young men of the land We hope to live longer than our fathers?to increase an?l multiply?and we want a larger territory. We will therefore, take all we can get. We will not be content with Texas alone, but we shall have Ore gon and the Californiaa too. It was this feeline which animated our young men, and which eleeted J. K. Polk; and we will not be contented while on the soil ol North America a foreign flag floats. (Tremedous cheer ing.) Least of all will we bear with England's, Jack tbera. (Cheers and Laughter.) She brags, and boasts, and threatens the dissolution ot the Union, but we regard het not. If she wants to quarrel she shall have it as soon s> she pleases. (Cheers.) We have no dread of her at a>'.

They perhaps shield, themselves, a Senators, behind the State Legislature; but we will compel the Legislature ol the State itself to deny and de nounce that man who does not vote for Texas. (Loud cheering ) Gentlemen, it is a sad thing that, after our late glorious triumph under the banner of annexation, w< should be called upon, again and again, to declare wha' is the will of the people. It is deplorable that pablio set vants will not faithfully discharge their duty. 1 tell them that there is not a voice sufficiently strong in this country to save the man who will deceive the people, and show himself a traitor to Texas. (Prolouged appfause.) Mr. Eddt being leudly called for, next addressed the meeting, and said Mat he was much pleased to addres them on that great national question?the annexation ol Texas. He thought It one more national in_ its character than any he recollected mthe course of his life It w? compatible with every emotion of fistriotism, and fit for every freeman t? ^approve, it wa? the doctrine of tot constitution alono that all men were free and equal, and it is natural thst they should seek to extend it? benefits to all mankind. Texas alone would not von!*"1 them for they would continue thair progress until all the world should be tree. It was not a question of a Tew acres o territory-not lor the sake ot putting a few dollars int< the national treasury; the spread of liberty and free in stitutions were involved. It was the particular proylnc of Americans to propagate. the doctrines of libsr ty in all nations ; for where should the benighted slaves of the eaith look but to theso who proclaim all men free and vqual. But there were considerations of in terest as well as those founded on principal tor the mea

sure. Teias was rich and fertile beyond any portion ot this Union. If allied to England she would compete with the Southern States In her productions, and by her wilj influence eventually compete with the manufactures o< to# North; so thst they should be compelled at last to take .?ossession at any cost of this fine country which is now oflared tor nothing One reason above all othars made him desirous ot the annexation of Texas, and thst was to show to the world by that act, drfimce to the threats and intiigu s of Great Biitain who was always ready to ap propnatr territory wherever she could get her hands up mi it. Mr. E Idy concluded by entering into a history ol the settb ment and struggles of Texas, her r?cognition at a free Republic, passing a high euloginm upon John C caihouu for bis able policy ou the question of Texas When Mr. Ediy had finished there were loud calls for Moore, Barhtr, Mortis, Dsvezsc and several others.? No one, however, appearing, the President called for t iose persons who were invited to address the meeting but were not responded to After a pause of seyeial mi nutes, it was ascertained thst Mr Barber was in the room, upon which loud and lurious calls from all quarters pre. vailed tor htm At last Mr Baudkr cane forward and said, it was the Brat tlmi since the election, he had the honor of addressing them He had been a fellow laborer in the field with them, and participated in their joy, at ?i curing for the democracy the direction of the council* ofthe nation far the nextfoui years Among other watchword* the democrats brought into the battle, was the annexation of T> xas, and t tat they were determined to carry out. They were aaked what right they had to Texas, but to Great Britain they would replv whit right they had to thunder with het cannon on the shore* of China-by what right does ih? trample on down trodden Ireland T (Immense cheering.) It ahe answered that she did so by right of conquest. then he would aay, by the same right America claimed Texas and by the heavens above it shall be their*. (Terrific apple' ae) The Autocrat of Russia, too, if he dared to demand our right to Texas, would be reminded of the ?mouldering, smoking tuina of Warsaw?oi Polish refu gees?ot patriots ? xiled to the mines of Siberia ; and thus would they tell the sovereigns of Continental Europe, in reply to suoh questions on Texas as they should darn to advance; they would be reminded el the partit on ol In land, on ovent the rnoat disgraceful In the annals of hi lory, and one which left a stain upon their escutcheon that time could not erase. There were guarantoed by th* Constitution of 1813 to the settlers In Texas, certain rights which were abrogated by Hanta Anna What did th* Texians do ? They appealed to the Congress of Mexico hot could obtain no redress ; they were just treated si thr Americans, when ihey appealed to the throne of Great Britain, and were spurned with contumely. Ho wlththr Texians. They entreated, they implored, but all to no purpose, until at last the rtandatd of Independence wa> raised to the hr?;.e, and they were triumphaat. Huch were the people who asked America to admit them into the Union, and it was lor tlr>m to say whetharthey should b? denied. They wero united together by the bonds of kin dred, of mutual advantage, of patrioliam.
