Nich'' Ih? towards noon, about t>v<*lve mile* west of L<i Htvt , and went taenceto Trouville, and returned ut niyht to Havre, Ireland. The weekly meeting ot' the Repeal Association was hclJ on Monday, July 21, William Magenuis in the chair. Mr 0'Cov!*K!,l acknowledged the receipt of JtM2 from New York, and read u letter nccompiayina the remittance, which unim tdverted on certain ex pretnions uttered by Mr O'Connell on a late occa sion, to rtle effect that if England rendered ju-tice to Ireland, she might calculate on the assist.) rice of Ir ii rwii iu enabling her "to humbl- the proud ea ? of America." What he (Mr O'Connell) said ? i he occasion referred tow is, that if England did render justice, full mid ample justice, to Ireland, she would he iu sucn a position, through the co-opera* tion ol Irishmen, as to defy all the nations ot civil ized Europe, and would he even able to pull down the fltg of America itself, Such was the sentiment he uttered, ?nd he believed such whs the sentiment of Ireland also. It was in consequence of the blus tering of Mr Polk with retard to the Oregon terri tory, a blustering which had since Jceased, that he btd been drawn into the observations complained of Mr P"ik evidently calculated on a diversion iti his fivor hi Ireland, should a rupture take pi .ce be tween ' ngland and America. Having expressed th*- gratification he feit at the opportunity atiorded hi. n <? f explaining, he moved the inaert'on of the I , tier oi) the minutes, and the thunks ot the associa tion to the wri'er. Mr (J'CosiNiLf. again rose, and said as that was the 1 1st opportunity lie should have for some titn?- ot urtdies^inif the association, he considered it advisa ble to lav th? present state of Ireland before the pub lic. He wisher! it, however, to be understood, that he di'l not intend to be idle; on the contrary, lie h..d cut out a Considerable quantity of work for himself, which would occupy htm during his sojourn in the country Mr Fitzroy Kelly, her Majesty's Solicitor Qrner?l, in his late address to the electors of Cam bridge, had staled that agitation and agr*rian dis turbaiices had ceased in Ireland : but as a proof of h:8 accuracy in the affairs of Ireland, he had to state th -tt he expected to have the pleasure ol addressing | 150,000 men ?f the county Wexford on the next We fnesd.ty, and an number in Galway during the ensuing week. Tn it w<i9 no sign that the agita tion was -ubsiding ; and test the government should forget that there" were such people as the Irish, it wis determined upou to hold two monster meeting? during each mouth. (Cheers) The ministry hai* certainly altered their tone with regard to Ireland, nnii Sir Janv s Gr ill tm had retracted his expression "that concession to Ireland had reached its limits," ] but he would never rest satisfied till Ireland was ip'aced on a tooting of |>ertect equality with England The country, he regretted to say, was not in such a state ol tranquillity as< ould be aesirt d. l'raedial dis turbance was rife in many counties. In fact the | country was not in such a state f.>r twenty years past. Fermanagh was disturbed, but he could not even guess ut ihe reason, as ir. was blessed with a large number of most excellent hndlords ; but nevertheless, the " Molly Maguires," were busy in circulating their nonces. That the country was dis turbed th'*re could be no question ; and was't not melancholy to have her Majesty's Solicitor General coming forward and stating deliberately, that peace, order, and obedience to the laws existed 1 Yes. Mr. Fitzroy Kelly asserted, that agitation had cased in Ireland, andjthat tranquillity reigned ? Whilst he gave the Government credit for their | good wishes towards this country, he would ask how tar had the promise held out in the Queen's speech, at the opening ct the session, with regard to Ireland, been fulfilled 1 The Muynooth bill had cer tainly been p issed, butthat measure was more valu able in its collateral nature than for the endowment it Conferred The discussions which it gave rise to plainly showed the innate hatred of the English! people to the religion of the people of this country The Colleges Bill he might look upon as passed, arid w- re they to consider that measure as a boon which the Catholic prehtes had pronounced to be dange rous to faith and morals ? It had been asserted that the opposition to this bill would be moderated, but he was in a position to be able to state that the opi nion- of the bishop* with regard to it were unchane ed, and would continue so. It was reasonably ex pected that some alteration would have been made in the Charitable Bequests Act during the present session, but the answer of Sir James Grahnm to the q" :rtion proi>o?ed by Lord Arundel, in the House of Commons, on Fiidiy night, has completely dissipa ted all hopes ot amelioration The Catholic Bish ops, who had supported that measure solely on t~.e around that the amendments they suggested would be introduced, had remonstrated with the govern ment on the treuchery that had been practised upon th"n, but the answer to their reinomtrances was. that the best consideration of the government would be directed to the points suggested; but their be^i consideration just meant no consideration at all ? After referring to a variety ot topics having refe rence to the future mode of carrying on the agita tion, Mr. O'Connell concluded by riving notice of his intention to prepare and put in form, during his sojourn in the country, the following bills, with a view to their adoption Ov the British |etfi-|ature,and that e-teh member of Ptrliament should be furnish ed with copies of them ful y six weeks before the commencement of the next session : ? f An Art to enable her mo*t frracioua maje?ty to ex ercise ? jtbout dels)', her uivioutae'l ;irerojfntive to sum nou her f&iliament of Ireland, to couUia (iecia ratory ?

The Lord Lieutenant has at length issued a pro ?Ummion, declaring the countv of Cavan and the ii-turbed di-tricts to lie amenable to the provision if an act which provides an additional torce when he citcumstances of the couuty require it. From a return issued ?n th? 19 li instant, by or ler <>t the House of Lords, it appears that tne total lumber of outrages specially reported by the con t ibulary in Ireland, during the month of June last, va- 39b The number in May was 823; that in iune, 1S44, only 446. Of the outrages so rt por ted diniug the last montli, 1S3 were of agrarian character France. Our advices from Paris are to the 24th ult The Contlitutionncl states that it is not improba ble that n general election will take place in the month of November. It says that when M Sauzet, the President ol the Chamber, waited on the King, his Majesty expressed himself in terms which let i no doubt on M. !?auzet's mind, that the present Chamber would be dissolved before the end ef the year, and that M. Sauzet and several other function aries have consequently left Pans in all haste to pre pare for the coming contest. We see by the Paris papers of Thursday, that, on Wednesday Marshal Soult, rebuked by M.De Boissy for severity to the army in Algiers, took occasion to palliate the abominable massacre at Dahra ? "It would," he said, "have been atrocious in Ku rope ; but such things are necessary in Africa; and the exterminated rrib* hid committed cruelties on French soldiers." The French p pe s loudly renew iheir indignant protest on this extenuation of the atrocity The L'h imbers were prorogued on Monday. The royal ordinance ot prorogation was carried to the Ch mber of Peers by Marshal Soult, President of the ( ouncil ; and to the Chamber ol Deputies, by vl Dumon, Minister of Public Works. The other la?;s published in the Moniteur are, that lor th" re-organization of the Conncil of State: the law relative to the police ot railroads, and others, appropriating 2.650,u00t for tee re-toration of the Cathedral ot Paris, (and of 7,461, OOOf. for the con struction of an hotel for the Foreign Department, md of buildings for the Stamp Orlice and Registry, <uid the archives of the Court of Accounts. The French funds improved on Monday, princi pally on account of the rise in British consols. Spain. Madrid papere of the 14th state, that the decree against the press has roused some opposition even tmong the supporters of the Ministry, but it is of that weak and uncertain kind that mmht be expec ted where the writers feel that the most moderate ^opposition might expose them to imprisonment, ban ishment, or ruin. The Madrid papers give low? accounts of the pro gress of the insurrection in Catalonia, but they add nothing to the information direct from Barcelona The Queen's visit to the Basque provinces had not vet been otficially annouuced, but was considered certain. The question of her Majesty's marriage continued to he discussed by the organs of the press. The Gazette publishes several despatches rel ative to the occurrence in Catalonia. Three soldiers of the Queen's troops and five revolters had been killed in the attack against San Andres de Palomar. The accounts from Barcelona state that the insur rection in that principality might be deemed at an end. The Queen was to leave on the 17th tor Va lencia, by sea, and would, after remaining there a few days, proceed to Madrid. Bayonne letters of the 18th ult., state, on the con trary, that the constant movements of troops in the Basque provinces, were held to indicate that her Ma jesty would visit those districts. Belgium. The Monittur of the 19ih ult., publishes a compa rative review of the public revenue for the first tux months of this year. The amount was? franct. cenh In 1845 33, 891, 7 Iti 17 In 1944 34,666,045 42 Increase in 1845 1,326,170 76 In several bianches there was a consider able increaso, amounting in all to 3,212,67:) 61 Bat a decrease in others ot 1,887,602 7ti On Tuesday last ihe immense manufactory ot Messrs. Motte, llosser iJc Co , at Rouboux, was totally destroyed by fire, which broke out at two iu the afternoon. The staircases h iving caught fire at the very beginning, the workman took refuge in the upper stories, some jumping out of the windows ? One of them broke his limbs, and is dead ; two others .ire severely wounded. Some workmen and women who were on the sixth -tory, surrounded and threatened on all sides by tidmes, uttered the most piercing cries, and present ed a lamentable spectacle as they stood at the win dows while means were preparing to save them; they were, however, alt glit down by means e( lad ders, ropes, Asc , but several received contusions ind wounds. The loss i< estimated at two millions tnd a half ol franco (?100,000 sterling ) The manu factory was not insured at its full value. It gave employment to 500 workmen. Sicily. Sicilian Navy ? A letter from Naples states that the King of the Two Sicilies has of late years been much occupied with increasing his navy It is, it s-,vs, ?t present com,>osed ol twelve mailing ships ol; among which are one ol 80 guns and four fri .'dt'-s, and twelve steamships, of which eight -ire Urge frigates with engine? ol three hundred hor < i>ower, mounted with Paixhan guns The Kina iiis erected af Pie trail a a very large foundry foi -iteamVngines; and in a short time one ol three han dled horse power, destined for a new frigate build ing at Casfeilamare, will be finished. Hwltifrland. The Swiss Diet, in its sitting of the 17th ult., de cid< d .igauiffi entertaining. tor the present, the ques tion of a revision of the federal compact, by a ma jority of fourteen and a hall cantons against nix and a half, and consequently the question stands ovei till next year. The principle of a total revision of the coni| act had the support of only the five must ra dical cantons, viz., Berne, Argau, Bale-cour.try, Glurie, and Vaud. The executive council of Zurich has decided on suffering Dr Steiger and the three gendarmes who assisted Turn in his escai**, to enjoy the ri_'ht? of hospitality, and on treating them as po litical refugees. This resolution was utianunsus a* res|>ects I Jr Steiger, but there were Hum-.- votes in fav >r of refusing the gendarmes permission to con tinue in tne canton Ku?Hln nml (ircnitala. The Hussian official military journal, the Invalid*, of the l'J'h ult., contains a despatch to ih<* Ministei of War, from the cotainander-iu-chiel of the army of the Caucasus, dated the 17tn June, givina long de tails of tiie movement ol the troop?, from Muv to June 5, on which day the Circassians were forced from an elevated position which they occupied at , Ant hiinerer. Tliev had assembled here to the number of from 2,500 to 3,000 men, but were at lan obliged to fly precipitately. The Russian troops had only 17 men wounded The possession of this mountain, the repoit says, is very important, b*ing the key to all the country round. OrtMf. (!o."*rr.AORATio!* at Smyrna. ? The following de tail* are taken from a private letter, dated Smyrna, July 9, lfi!5 : ? " Smyrna is again in misery and ruin; a larger and more awful confhgration than the last com menced on the evening of the 3d instant, continued violent'y for twelve orfitteen hours, and upwards of two days in burning embers and side-fires, even up to yesterday; here and there magazines and ?ton*' buildings were burning? some from beinu' opened too soon, when the heated air burst into a tl irne. It began in the centre of the town, aided by i furious north wind, (which afterwards ch inged ,) destroying everv thing right and left, and lor a circumference, I calculate, of at least a mile and a half. The town Iwlf side ol Frank street is consumed, n?d then right way to our exit out of town to Bouoja. The Ivigli-h hospital was saved by a miracle, and thete by preserved ihat part of the town and the so-called Huh tie Hose. The Austrian hospital is burnt ? Close to it Borrell lives ; he was saved, although the tne was burning on three sides of him. Then, backwards, all the Armenian quarter, except Purdie ^reet, is destroyed The (ire skirted the Jews' I tiirt'T ? burning some hundred houses? and then '?liread to the grandVtzierKhan and up to the bi/ars Shoemaker lane is all burnt, and round about St. (re urge's, as in the former fire. Til*" three cor ners, Atkinson's, Maltnss's, Arc , nre saved Itcam^ r to us, when Van J,ennep's and three or four adjoin I ne houses were burnt; but all these being built with terraces and long passages, the half only towards Frank street were consumed, and the fire was fortunately stopped. By pulling houses down in the little lane we pass through, going into the countiy, from Frank street, we stopped it on that side of us, although it .vas very close. The Dutch und Tuscan consulates were burnt; two or three large Kuans? that is, the (irand Vizier, auew msde one, and luiaiim Oglu Khan were destroyed The Greek hospital, close to the Austrian hospital, was saved by a great exertion It has three hundred in valids in it. Fourteen or fifteen large wine taverns md their depots, &c., are gone. At one time the fire so raged, tlmt h id not a change of wind taken 1 place, it wis thought all Smyrna must have been in 1 rains. Mr. Jackson says it is t ie worst fire he has 1 ever seen, and larger even than that in 17!>7 He, as as well as Br uit, uid all down our neighborhood, had their houses dismantled, and everything put into niigaziiiett, but, thank C#od, the Lngli-h have escap ed V ery |?-w, nnd those on h in rented houses, have a en burnt out ; amongst whom are our friends Ju nor, Lliarnaud, the Vice Consul, and some others i oiiug whittall made a grand stand, and saved their House, and consequently the neighborhood Great ' given I), the isirian corvette and 1' reach brig in |>ort 1 lie hngliuli inen-ot-w ir were ! unlu kily absent Some fifty or sixty jieoplc may h ive lost their lives. i The Armenians arc completely ruined, and how ^ ' x * - ? ? w~. - btuintas, with reference to old engagements, will 4??t on, I don't know, though hot much merchandise iias b?en lost ? manufacture* to ?l,U00; Valonia >M?rhape as much. The religious schisms cause threat deify and difficulty in forming a committee of suc eor. The Sisters of Charity are doing a great deal "I good. As yet our English subscription comes up to ?500. 1 am particularly fortunate, and my people ire all saved, including Browning anu my brokers.

A tire in this country is dreadful Many thousands are compelled to live out in the open air in the gar dens, ted by charity, as they murt be for some time; <nd the tirst day or so after the fire no bread was to lie had. IssfKREt riox in Candia.? Letters from Beyrout, of the 20th of June, mention thit intelligence had lust arrived there of a general rising of the Greeks in Crete, but uo particulars are given. Syria. The intelligence from Syria represent that country as being in a very disturbed state. The Druses were roving in quest of plunder, and intent upon pillaging all travellers who came within their reach. Kt;ypt. On the :*?th June, the French war-steamer.Gomer, arrived ut Alexandria, with the Duke de Montjien sieron board. The ostensible^ object of the Prince is to visit Mehemet Ali and Upper Egypt, but his Highness has chosen the very worst season of the year for ascending the Nile, as, besides the exces sive heat, the river at present has throughout its course the very unpicturesque appearance of a dirty ditch between embankments liiteen feet high. During his stay at Alexandria, the Prince resided at the palace of Said Pasha, called the Gabareh.and was the object of the most assidious attention on the part ol Mehemet Ali, who had just received in telligence of the very gracious reception recently uiven to his sons ut Paris by Louis Phillippe, and therefore he appears to have been doubly anxious to return the compliment, by gratifying in every way the wishes of the Duke de Montpenster. India. The Overland Mail has arrived, bringing dates from Calcutta, Jun?* 8d; Bombay, June 3d; Madras. June 10th ; Galle, June 14th; Aden, June 30th; ana Alexandria, July 10th. The necessity ct dispatching the mail from Bom bay some ten days earlier than usual, on account of the adverse monsoon, causes the division of the month's news into two unequal portions, one em bracing upwards of three weeks of it, ana the other only one. The most important local event is the passing ol the new tariff act. On the following articles only is the increase more than 1J and 3 per cent , when imported in British and foreign bottoms re*-pectively. British marine stores increase of duly, 2 and 4 |>er cent; foreign marine store, 4 and 8 ; British metals, 2 and 4 ; Fo reign metals 4 and 8 ; Briri.-h woollens 3 and 6 ; fo reign woollens 6 aud 12 ; Wines and liqueurs, from 10 and 20 per cent, to 1 and 2 rupees per imp. gallon. This on the wines most extensively consumed amounts to an increase of about cent per cent. The higher classes ol wines it does not so much affect. On spirit the duty is raised from 9 annas per ini|>eri al gallon ; when imported in a British vessel, to 1 ru pee, 8 annas; and from 1 rupee when in a foreign vessel, to 3 rupees. The press of India, which has lately suffered so much from casualties and changes, has lately by death lost two of its members, one of them at least a very conspicuous one ? Captain McNaghten, the proprietor and editor of the Calcutta Englishman, and Dr. Kindy, editor of the Ccylan IleruTd. In Nepaul, the government has reverted to the old ruler. The famous chief by whose aid the young Malierajah ousted his father was shot in the old man's presence, and probably by his order, and the young man has sunk into his original insignificance. Matters have been very quietly settled there. During the approaching rainy season an attempt is to be made by the government steamers to extend the navigation of the Ganges beyond Allihabad, its present limit, to Campore, and if possible to Fatte guish, the latter being at a distance of about 200 riules beyond the present stopping place. China. The news from China is to the 8th April. The most remarkable item thereof is an account of ?hi assault by a mob of Chinese on Mr. Montgome ry Martin, Mr. Jackson, (the Vice-Consul,) and Rev. R Hunter. These gentlemen were, it seems, walking round the walls ol Canton, when they were unprovokedly set upon by the people,trom whom they luckily escaped with no other injury than the mortifi cation of being butieted and robbed by a crowd of low blackguards The Governor of Hong-kong had sent to Keying to demand redress and guaran tee for future good conduct, but the result is yet un known. The commercial news is of little interest, trade being, as far as British goods are concerned, very dull. From Amoy we learn that the troops were with drawn from Koolungsoo on the 22d ot March, and the island delivered over to the Chinese. The Ad miral appeared delighted at this observance of faith on our t>art, of which he had probably entertained tuispicion. The Chinese flag was hoisted by the troopship and saluted with three guns, according to Chinese custom. The Admiral, on his part, hoisted the British ensign, aud saluted it with the same num ber. We have to announce the death of the Bishop of Macao, which event took place on Saturday morn ing last. New Zealand. A budget of" official correspondence from New Ze tland lias been issued by the Colonial office ; the dates extending to the 2flth Match. They do not throw much additional light on the subject to which ih?*y relate the outbreak of the natives ; but there are several important points. Governor Fitzroy ex plains why he did not concentrate his troopsori Ko rorarika: ? " Wellington was threatened," and Heki meant to attick Auckland if the troo[>s left it Lieut (Teorge Philpotts, who writes in a rather apo logetic strain, imputes the defeat of the British to the abandonment of the outer block-house. So does Captain Sir Everard Home, of the Queen's s-hip North Star ; he attributes it, however, not to want of courage, but to want of judgment, one party having seized the block-house while Mr. Campbell hud left it to attack another party ; and Mr Camj> bcll is a young officer of but two years standing 111 the service. " It is remarkable," says Sir Everard, " that the Protestant church of Kororisnka has been burnt down, whilst the Roman Catholic establish ments remain untouched " Governor Fitzroy meant to remain on the defensive until re-inforced: be lias " had offers of assistance from several tribes in the north of New Zealand, of about 3, 000 men; which he declines accepting unless driven to ex tremity, lest they should become his masters." Un der these circumstances, the Captain savs that he should depart from hiH order to leave New Zealand, until it were safe to do so. Theatrical*. iWo. Miss Cl'siiman.? On the 22d ult. was the conclud ing night of Miss Cushmuii's engagement for the present season. The "Stranger" wus the play cho sen for the occasion. A London paper says : "The pirt of Mrs. H iller is no favorite with us? -neverthe less, ai the actress's most successful assumption, it was, perhaps, wisely chosen. In other characters. Miss Cushm-in had shown ureal physical energy and force of passion. In this she exhibited a qui<*t pow er, and a tender pathos, which has repe iteilly com manded the applause of numerous audiences, ind uniformly penetrated the sacred fount of syniiM thetic tears In concluding our notices of this lady, we have only to add, that for her success she has been little indebted to the management The gene ral inefficiency ol the mi*r en xrf iir, and of the his trionic talent of her coadjutors, has been marked and unprecedented in modern theatrical exig ence. So far, therefore, the new actress has stood alone, and it I * much that she has contrived to get through, not only with safety but honor, an ordeal more than usually |>erilous, for more, we believe, than eighty nights. Since bur final a m>ea ranees were announced, she has attracted crowded houses, and has reason, we think, to be satisfied with the great enthusiasm of the audience on the evening of her farewell " This talented lady is not only getting high in the ladder of fame, but is also in the way of making a rapid fortune Already has she sent to her agent 111 Philadelphia two handsome remittances. ? She is the favored guest of all circles ? literary, sci entific and affluent ? by whom she has the toubrir qurt of the " talented American." Her company is sought with the greatest eagerness. In our files, as far a* at present received, we do not see anything ol Hackettor Forrest ; their where about or what about is not mentioned. Mad. TaL'lioni wa^ to make her last appearance in London on the 81st ult. The Urns-el's cornpiny tc minated their perfor inance at I)rury Line Theatre on the 27th ult.

Miss Davenport, the celebrated actress, accom panied by her lather and mother, and a theatrical corps, recently lett London lor Hamburgh. Mr. Lumley has managed his affair* so well at at her Majesty's Theatre that lie has become the proprietor of that splendid establishment. It is ulso whispered 'hat he is the principal proprietor of the Morning Post newspaper. Madame Grist, Signor Mario, the two Labi inches, and M Benedict, ars engaged at the forthcoming subscription Concerts in Liverpool, which are to he

held at the Amphitheatre, on the evenings of Friday, Monday, and Wednesday, the 5th, 8th and 10th ^ejH tember nest. Morton's comedy, " A .School for Grown Chil dren," compressed into three acts, was revived at thf I laymarket Theatre, and was exceedingly well received. The comedy has not been played since 1827 : and Farren, Buckstone, and Mrs. Glover, re sumed their ?risjinal characters. Mr. Mitchell it is thought will re|>cat the French plays lor a short season under royal patronage Conti, of her Majesty's Theatre, has been seri ously indisposed. In the theatrical world there are two versions o f one story afloat ; imprimis that Benjamin Webster i of the Haym rket theatre, has got tired, and got rid ot Madame Vestris and Charles Mathews; xeiundo, that the proprietors of C-ovent Garden, wincing un der the wrath of the court, are determined to do all they can to open their theatre for dramatic entertain ments, and have made an offer of it to Vestris and her spouse. It i9 well known that the same parties burnt their fingers rather severely in the same con cern some ye*rs ago. That they have seceded from the Havmarket corps is certain, for Webster and MissP llorton {Mrs. Reed) are oluying their cha racters in that piece of inestimable French fustian, "the Little Devil." It was stated sometime ago that Macready had been offered the theatre on his own terras. The offer to Vestris would seem to im ply that the "great tragedian" had declared off. It appears that Mr. Butler was engaged to deliver a course of lectures on Shaks|>eare'8 plays, ut the AiheniBum, Manchester. Last Wednesday was the first ot the series, Hamlet beincthe tragedy selected; but scarcely had he concluded reading the fourth act, before he became ho seriously ill that he was conveyed home. Not the slightest symptoms of re covery were perceptible afterwards, and on the fol lowing evening (Thursday), about half-past seven, as he was proceeding across his bed-room, support ed by his wife, he suddenly fell back in her arms, and expired. The complaint which h.isthus brought him to an early grave was one of a very painful and dangerous character, and it is understood that but a lew months ago he was operated upon by Dr. Liston. He was in his 41st year, and was much esteemed throughout the profession. The premises known as Vauxhall Gardens were put up to public competition at the Auction Mart, by Mr. Gadsden. The first offer for the principal lot, including the public gardens, rotunda, tScc., was ?10,000, and after much competition it was knock ed down for Jtl7, 700 ; but at which price the auc tioneer satd it was not sold. The other two lots, consisting of a plot of building ground at the west end of the gardens, and a family residence at the south-east corner, let at ?100 a-year, were also withdrawn. Lablache had his benefit on the 24th ult., at her Majesty's Theatre. The opera was Don rasquale. The hero of the evening seemed in a happy mood, and his rich humour, with Grisi's archness and spi rit, kept the audience in a state of constant hilarity. The graceful music, too, was charmingly sung. There was a new divertissement, called Diana, in which Tuglioni appeared as Diana, and Perrot as Endymion. It consisted ofa series of pas de deux, representing the classical flirtation between the god dess of the night and her mortal lover. Taglioni's dancing was an exhibition of consummate grace h nd beauty , and she was admirably supported by Perrot. The theatre, as usual, was crowded in every part Miss Julia Bennett took her benefit at the Hay market Theatre, on the 21st ult , and in addition t<> the attractions, that great lion of the day, Leopold de tMeyer, (the eminent German pianist, in the handsomest manner volunteered to perform a fanta sia on the occasion. A full house may therefore be safely calculated upon. M. Phillippe terminated his extraordinary per formances at the St. James's Theatre, on the 30th instant. Continental Theatricals. A sister of the most fitted of modern tragedians, Rachel, liiii appeared at the Frangais in two charac ters, Palmyre, in "Mahomet," and Zaire, in the tra gedy of that name. This voting lady made her debut some two years since at Odfcon, but with indifferent success. A pretty vaudeville, of the very best class, h^s been very deservedly reeeiecd with favor at the the Gymnose, under the tide of " Un Changement de Main." At the Vaudeville Theatre, thu only event is the return of Madame Albert, now unquestionably with out a rival in Paris, if, indeed, she ever had one as an actress of vaudeville. A one act bagatelle, " Le Brocanteur," has been given at the Varieties, >ind allowed to pass muster . but it is chiefly noticeable from the sketch of a Jew broker given by Dussert. In other respects, the piece is insignificance itself. A drama, called M L? Canal St. Martin," has beer well received at the Gaite, filled with rascalities of all kinds, intended to illustrate the little mysteries of Paris, us practised on th? banks of the canal n question. It is well |>ertormed ; the principal female part by Mme. Sarah F6Ux, another sister, it is said, of Mcille. Rachel. She 19 a woman of evident ta lent, and now and again delivers a sentence in a manner not unworthy the tragedian herself. Tamburini is expected in town shortly, from St Petersburgh, having takta a trip to hi? native Italj previous to commit to P iris. Mme. Viardot Garcia has arrived some time, having proceeded hither di rectfrom the Russiau capital. Tne campaign is de s"ribed as having been brilliantly successful, and the entire company return for the next season. The vast Theatre at Paris, called the Hippodrome, 350 feet in length, was opened last week with a va riety of entertainments, partaking of the charactei of the sports of the ancient circus, to an audience of upwards of fifteen thousand persons, of every rank, from the peer to the gamtn. A comedy lately brought out at the Theatre Fran gms, has made a great noise, and still continues t< be talked about. It is called "The Tower of Ba bel and, though the scene of it is laid in Snot land, is a hit at the scheming public characters 01 F ranee of the present day. It professes to teach that republicans, legitimists, and Bonapartista, who plot aad scheme against the existing government, are only anxious to promote their own selfish inte rests, not caring a single straw lor the cause to which they profess to be devoted. Donizetti has arrived at Paris from Yienna. The inauguration of the st.itue of Beethoven, for which subscriptions have been contributed b> musicians all over Europe, will take place at Bonn, on the 11th of August, and will be preceded, accom panied. and followed by solemn musical performan ces, selected from his own works. Severul Eng iish professors, among whom are Sir George Smart, Mr. Moscheles, Mr. T. Cooke, and Mr. Neate, have received invitations from Dr. Breidenstein, the pre sident of tlie "Committee for the Beethoven monu ment," to be present on the occasion. The Musical Society of Hamburgh has sent tc> Dresden a crown of solid silver, admirably wrought, destined to adorn the marble bust of Weber wlncb is placed over Iub tomb. A grand musica festival will be given in the be ginning of next month, at AschaH"enburg, at which the King, and, it is expected, the Queen of England will be present. 1200 singers and 600 musicians will take part in the proceedings. Jenny Lind, the celebrated Swedish vocalist, has become the wife of a German nobieman Through respect for Britannic respectability, the opera of "Charles VI." is not allowed to be played at the French Opera. It app?ars the friendly feel ings entertained by M. Guizot towards the ptrfid 1 Albion, are such 11s to induce him to arrest the per formance of this opera, unless Mr. H ilary, the au thor, or the administration ef that theatre, consem to retrench the famous ritournelle, "Jamais en France I'Anglais ne r^gnera" (never will the Br, tieh reign in France).

Markets. Londos Mows* Market July 'Ji.? Since our publi cation of this day week, the money market has remain ed very quiet, the railway share market having engross ed the attention of speculative buyers exclusively We believe we may say that none but the purchases of the government broker, and bona fide transactions lor invest- j ment, appear in the week's business in consols. Vet in I the absence of the support of speculators, consols have I boen steady at 90 to A tor money, and 99$ sellers for the account. There has been some speculative business doing in ; Spanish Stock, and prices have varied considerably in consequence of the report of the late revolutionary movements in that country; they have now, however, i settled to nearly their former point. In Peruvian Stock. \ a rise of some importance has occurred, and also in fiuu nos Ayrean, from the belief that the quarrel between the Argentine and Uruquav Republics may be brought speedily to a close, and that the former may be left to the free development of her resources. The following are the latest quotations: ? Consols lor Money 90; Reduced Three per Cents. 99j; Thrce-and-aQuarter, New, lOijj ; Exchequer Bills 54 to 59. Our report of the London market for Ame rican Securities continue! favorable. Since our publication for the ateaui aliip " Cambria," more miiuiry bus existed for American Stock, and the quotations stand more favorable for the seller. We have before stated that this improved feeling arises out of the late intimation from America that their debts would be paid. Let this promise bo carried out, and American paper will become as easy ot negotiation on the London and Pari* Kxchange as that of the first com mercial house in the world. We make the following quotations sinco our publica tion of (he 19th : ?

Though the demand, particularly in the last-few days, has not been quite so extensive as for some time past, and buyers have bad a greater choice of common and middling descriptions of American, prices have under gone little or no change; the fair and good qualities con tinue in request for export, and are rather dearer; Brazil, F.gyptian, and Surat also command full prices.

These purchases have been made both'for cash and upon time The clearances ol' New Patna have been up to this time upon a very consi derable scale, and from the small quantity ottered at the second sale, with the lateness of the third salo, may lie attributed the speculative demand that has arisen. New Patna has been run up from 610 dolls, to ttiO dolls, cash. Old Patna has not partaken of the excitement and has re mained at 680 dolls, to S!)0 dolls.

S Edgerton. ex press Irom Andes, far medical aid, stating tha' Inner Sin - lilt' Steele had been shot In the Indians. Ti.e lollnwtng facts we believe cm be relied upon us correct : ? Ves-cr day morning ihi'iid Moore, in company with lioilti Sne ritf Steele, t'ouitaUle Kdgerton, ana H. l\ Wright, Esq., went to An tes, about M milus Irom this place, fur the purpose of selling some property on the farm of Moses Earl, which had been destrained for rent. The Sheriff and Mr. Wright arrived on the premi?ei about 10 A M., and saw several person* at a distance, disguiied as In dians ; soon after, alarge body, of from 70 to 100 more, inarched past iato a piece of wood*, where the other* were assembled. A number of spectator* contjnned to arrive on the premise* from the time the Sheriff flrit got there, until thore wa* a Urge collection. The Sheriff, was a*?ured by some of the head-men of the iadUn* that he should not be molested if he did no more than hi* duty. When the hour of sale arrived, he started into the field to drive the rattle to the higeway, and wa* follow ed or accompanied by a body of nemo 26 or 30 ef the In dians, whs frequently itopned the cattle and interrupted him, but he finally succeeded in getting the cattle near the bar* or gate way, to the street, at which a large number of Indians nnd *ome spectators were (tandlag. ?/ith some reluctance on the part of the Indian*, the U'irs weie permitted to be removed. teele and Edger ton had arrived a short time previous, and were en their horse* near by. Mr. Wright, about thi* time (tapped though into the field, and in a few moment* after, wa* followed by Steele and Edgerton on liartebaclt, and had advanced one or two horae lengths, and were standing ?till, when one of the Chiefs gave the order to (boot the horse*; one Indiar stepped forward within a few feet of Kdgerton, and deliberately shot hi* horse ia the breait, which was instantly followed by two other *bota at tttcole and hi* her*e. Steele'* horie being wounded, reared and sprang forward in the iastant, when n volley wa* fired, three balls taking effect on Steele ; one, en tering trie left side, pasted out through the bowel*, one passed through the thick part of the breast, and tha other through the right arm near the shoulder. It i* poasihlo Steelo wa* wounded In the arm on the lr*t fire, a* he was observed endeavoring to raiie hi* arm, with pittol in hand, to fire, which he effected, with aeme difficulty. After he fired, one of the Indian* wa* observod to drop his gun, and it is possible he wn* wounded, Edgertoa'a horse wa* also *hot from the left side into hi* vital*, tha ball ]iaising between the stirrup-leather and Edgertoa'a leg Steele survived about lis hour* in the most excru ciating pain, when death came to hi* relief. Thus in the piime of life, has been cat offty a lawless mob, a worthy nnd respected aitizen. and a mo-t efficient officer The remain* of poor Steele were brought into tho village this forenoon, causing universal sorrow among our citizens. Every eye wa* moistened? but few word* were spoken? the heart being too full for utter ance. Mr.S. had resided among us from enrly childhood, and had alway s so conducted himself as to obtain the friendship no# good will of all with whom he had asso ciated, either in business or (onial and neighborly inter course. And thus to bo shot down in cold blood, nothing haviug been dene on hi* part, or oa the part of those with him, to excite tha ire of his murderer* ; hut simply because he was nn officer, and had heretofore done hi* duty as a guol citizen and officer, according to the laws of his country. Tue heart sickens at the thought that thore are among us. those bearing the im ige of our Creator, possessed of such a demoniac spirit and disposit on as to shoot down, at noonday, a lello v being who h id never done more than every .?ood citizen ought to do hi defence of tli* laws and of society. ?
