VEVV YORK HERALD. Nt-tv Vnrk, Thursday, November '40, 1H45. The News from Kuropc. The steam ship Britannia, now due, is in her six teenth day. Tins steamer was sixteen and a half days in ni?tkinjf the passage at this time last year. The Afr or Revolutions. We are certainly in the commencement of un age that will be productive of great revolutions in bociety and governments. In this country, we per ceive on all hands the omens of a mighty revolution in the public sentiment of the nation and the con struction of parties, growing out of the position as sumed by the administration on the Oregon ques tion After u great deal of backing and filling, and a variety of resitonses, sometimes good-natured and sometimes tart, the government organ at Washing ton gives us some unequivocal views on the Oregon question, and seems to be determined in the opinion that Mr. Poik, in his forthcoming message and in his new administration,will not only claiai the whole ot the territory in dispute l?eyond the Rocky Moun tains, but will insist on the possession of the whole, and the extension over it of the laws and institu tions of the United States. We give in our paper to day, some further views I'rom the Washington Union on this subject?more definite, positive, and explicit, than anything we have heretofore published, taken from the same quarter. It is true, on this subject, the organ has been some thing very like the splendid Erard piano, played up on by that wonderful musician, Leopold De Meyer. After the execution of that brilliant composition, called the " Marcht Marocaint," or even that most exquisite melody, the '? Iiantt du St rail," we have generally lound that even this fine-toned instrument requires the touch of the tuner, and has to be twisted up again to the proper tone, for another brilliant piece of execution. So it is with the organ at Washing ton on the Oregon question The first piece of composition on the Oregon question, was some thing like the " Marcht Marocamt"?so strong and so powerful, and so brilliant, that it startled the nerves of the whole country; but the instrument got immediately out of tune, by the fotce of the musi cian who struck the keys, and it was only after se veral da)*' backing and filling, and turning and twisting its keys, that it again got right and in con dition fitting to "discourse most eloquent music." It has been tuned a second time, and we are happy to observe that the government organ now comestipto :he proper pitch, and can play the " Marcht Maro caint" over again, with greater power and brilliancy than ever. Tlius it will be seen, from the article we have Given ro-day at length, that the position of the administra tion i? now certain on the Oregon question, and that the highest, and broadest, und proudest, and noblest ground?uncompromising ground, will be taken on that point. Air Polk, it seems, will not assume even the ground that we have now reason to believe was taken by Air. Calhoun in his protocols and correspondence with Air. Pakenham, before ihe former left the office of the Secretary of State. Our correspondence discloses to us that Mr. Cal houn proposed to divide the territory at the fifty necond degree of latitude, and to embrace the island of Vancouver, so as to give us all the advantages of hdrbors. This was negatived by Mr. Pakenham; but this position of Air. Calhoun has been still fur ther negatived by ttie administration, who, it now tppe:irs, insist.-, upon the whole of the territory. Well, be it so. The whole democracy of the west and of the east, on this side of the mountains as well, with the exception of the commercial classes, and some of the cotton planters of the south, in cluding a few stuck-jobbers in the Atlantic cities, ?ire in favor of this manly, American ground. The movement will commence in Congress, and the Oregon question will take the lead of all other to pics ol the day. It will be the opening of a new era, and the commencement of a new revolution in the stale of society and the distribution ol power amongst the nations of the earth. It will also have a domestic influence in this country on the construc tion and re-construction of parties. There can be no doubt that the assumption of a high and strong ground on this question, will decompose the present fragments of the de mocratic party at Tfashington, and through out the country?not unite them, as is supjosed by many. But w hile it decomposes the present relations of the democratic party, it will create, out of the disjointed fragments, another?a bol der?a more energetic?a mightier party, for fu ture o|>erations. In this movement, it is easy to perceive that South Carolina and its politi cians, unless they are very wary, will be driven oil the gear, and left behind the great train that is now running over the .valley of the West, through the gap of the Reeky Mountains, down to the Paci fic Ocean. Another result may also be anticipated, and is at least within the reach of probability. Mr. Polk is no candidate for the Presidency a second time He was not a candidate for the Presidency a first time, yet he consented to run. He was nominated in the chapter of accidents, without his knowledge or con *ent\ but he felt himself constrained to accept the office. A similar contingency may arise in less than two years, and all the leaders of chquf* south md west, and nortn and east, may be confused a xecond time, in consequence of the great excite ment that will grow out of the movements of the administration on the Oregon question, and the position in which it will place this country in the (ace of England and of all Europe. We wait with extreme impatience the opening of Congress, and ihe commencement of the great game of the future, to which the eyes of the republic, and of the civiliz ed world, are now directed with such intense anxi. ety __ Telegraphic Communication with Washing ion?We understand that arrangements are making tor the transmission to this city of daily re|>ort? of t'ongress.by the Magnetic Telegraph. It is in con- i temptation to have an abstract of all the proceed ings sent over this lightning line. There was un informal meeting, last evening, of the editors of the press of this city relative to these arrangements it seems, however, that, lor the present, this in telligence will first have to be transmitted by trie graph to Baltimore, thence conveyed by mail to Philadelphia, and by lightning again to thi< city. In this way we shall be enabled to publish all the proceedings of Congress up to the hour ol adjourn ment; this afternoon,for instance, in to-morrow morn 1 nii'*Htrald But in about six weeks the line through to Washington will be finished, when we shall have un unbroken and uninterrupted communication with Washington?every instant, if need be. Instead of . " daily mail," as it is now called, we shall then h ive an " instant mail." The lips that utter a fact v ill scarcely cease moving in Washington before v have the tac? in this city. All this, however, is t? ? cost a good deal ol money; dollars and facts go together?and the <|uicker the news comes the more H will cost. It is the intention of the managers of these light ning lines to open a telegraphic communication between Boston and the Capitol, a distance of nearly five hundred miles, on the first of next January Washington intelligence will then be published in Boston as soon as in this city Wokk fob Conokf.ss.?Florida lias begun her ca ??r a.i i Slate, in a manner that will somewhat in terfere with her desire, as expressed on the State ns, viz: " het us alone." It appears that the seat 01 the first member she s?*nds to Congreao is to be contested. Cabell, whi?, has been declared elect ed by a majority of 51; whereas, it all the returns are recognised, Hrockenborough, democrat, is the fortunate man. But it is not a bad idea, for a young and Towing State, on her start tor greatness, to re? ft bit of impulse of some shape from UoRgrcp#, C*iris of th* Takikk QtrcsTiow.?According to the aspect of events now transpiring in the country, this great question will, in all probability, be brought to a crisis in the next Congress, and will be settled decisively, on general ground^, such as will prove satisfactory to all moderute persons though not precisely meeting the views of ihe ultras of the north or south. The late Tariff Convention, which was held at Holhdaysburg, with the view of giving concentra tion and force to the old and antiquated notions for merly held on this topic, has proved, in every res ect, a complete abortion. A few busy persons, of all parties, were present; but the number was few and their inlluence small, so that alter some mean and insignificant resolutions had been passed, they dispersed, without being able to produce any etfect u|)on ihe public mind. If we look to the south, we shall find the same violent efforts to have been made in that quarter also, which have had the same decided failure. The Memphis Convention, now in session, may not improbably give expres sion to some general opinion on this subject; but we are inclined to believe it will rather be engaged on the great and important subjects which relate to the South and West, than upon any abstract ques tions concerning the tariff. In fact, the anti-tariff sentiment exists only in South Carolina, while the ultra tariff feeling only finds place in one or two presses in the North. Since the great excitement in the South, which led to nullification, a great change has taken place throughout the whole country. The manufacturing spirit has spread through nil the Union, and the con sumption of cotton by American manufacturers, has augmented from a few scute of bales only, to nearly a fourth of the entire cotton crop ol the South. Tins has produced u corresponding change in the epinion of the ]>eop!e, anJ consequently in the opinions of politicians. Manufacturing establishments have been extended to Virginia, North Carolina, and other places of the South, Irom all which such a change has been produced as to infuse more rea son, moderation and good sense into the tariff question, than has been the case for twenty-five years past. We expect Congress to modify the present tariff' to some extent; but not sufficient to uproot the Al leghanies arid dry up the Hudson river. Naturamzation ?There is a great deal of con trover y in these days, in the whig papers, relative to naturalization? emigrants?and the best mode of treating foreigners arriving in this country with the design cf making it their permanent abode. The Wuil street journals, s'ich as the Courier, Journal of Commtrte rind Exprtt*, are very hostile to the pre sent naturalization laws ; and some of them desire iheir abolition; others the extension so as to include a still longer period of residence, twenty-one years. The 7Vi6tttK and Thurlow Weed seem to be, on the other hand, desirous to abolish these laws entire ly, and adopt in their stead a rule recognizing every decent native of any other country who may have some intelligence, as a voter one year after his arri val, without any other formality. We are disposed to think that Thurlow Weed and his coadjutors are nearest the mark on the sub ject. The existence of any restriction like the na turalization laws, is not in consonance with the ge neral principles on which this Republic and its in stitutions have been founded. When the first set tlers landed in New England and New York, they all exercised, from the moment of their arrival, all the social and political privileges of the community which then existed. The idea of excluding any one member of a particular community from the en joyment oi its privileges?the subjecting of him to civil pains and disabilities, because he happened to have been born beyond a certain mountain, or on the other side of a certain sea, while he breathed the same atmosphere, and enjoyed the same light of heaven, seems to be an absurdity in all its natural features. But a controversy on this subject, in the news papers, although it m iy lend to scut" talk in Con gress, will never have uny effort on the present condition of the naturalization laws. We expect they will remain as they are lor many years to come; and that it any change takes place, it will be a removal of the restriction, and not an increased stringency of their te Very Late from South America.?The barque Meteor, Capt. Jenny, from ltie de Janeiro, with advices to the 6th ult., arrived last evening. The Emperor and Empress of Brazil were to sail on the 6th for Rio Grande, in the Brazilian frigate Constitution, attended by the U. S. frigate Raritan and a small Brazilian fleet. The U. S. sloop-of-war Cyane arrived at Rio on the 5th, from Norfolk. All well. The Meteor has placed us in possession of intelli gence from Buenos Ayres to the 15th, and from Montevideo t? the 14th of September. It appears that the French and English squadrons were blockading Buenos Ayres, and were determi ned to bring Rosas to close quarters. Vessels bound thither were compelled to make Montevideo their port till hostilities had ceased. There is no news of interest from Bahia or Per nambuco City Keform?We are earnest in our wish to see some movement made in favor of city reform, and the adoption of some general measures looking towards an entire change in the administration of the city government, at the approaching spring election. There can be no doubt the materials ex ist in great abundance, which, it properly managed, may lead to this desirable change. The taxes are so enormous, that the sensibilities of every tax paying citizen have been most keenly aroused; for when you touch a man's pocket, you touch him in the quick In addition to all, the streets are in an abominable condition?dirty?miserably paved? and badly regulated. In negligence and incapacity, the present Corporation appears to exceed any that has preceeded it. No time or attention is directed to the real interests of the city, aside from party cont-ideraiioas We must, it is clear, have a new party, it we expect a better order of things. Let the work, then, be begun at once, and let us have a revolution in the city election next April, as it is protmi>l?' there will be a revolution growing out of the btrtte Convention, and also in the Union gen erally, grow mg out of Mr. Polk's position on the Oregon qut ftion. CaRRM5HSI*ESS0F THE PoRT OFFICE DEPARTMENT I"he liMto ol the mail bag hits exhibited the grossest negligence on the part of the post office officials in this city. Never has such a circumstance before occurred, and it could have occurred only through carelessness. We would recommend to the I'oet M&ater General to look to this matter. It has de stroyed in a great degree the confidence of the peo" pie in the Post Office arrangements. If on* valua ble bag could thus be lost, so may do/ens hereafter.

Mr. D., however, got through very well. Of the opera aud performers we have alreudy spoken. Nothing new was elicited last evening. This evening the drama of " Lucille," and the new comedy of the " Sheriff of the County," will be per formed. On Friday Miss Pelcy's benefit takes place. Bowkky Thsatrk.?This favorite place of amusement was again crowded in every part last night?from pit to dome there seemed to be but one scene of " upturned faces,"?the chief feature being the first appearance of the universally conceded national comedian, George H. Hill,whose return to those boards, after a lapse of years, was signalized by tokens of the heartiest applause we have ever witnessed Succeeding " Jedediah Home bred" and "Nathan Tucker," as represented by Mr. Hill, and after being called out before the curtain, where he eipressed his heartiest acknowledgements for the kind manner in which he had been received. Booth's play of "I'golino" wa* introduced ; Mr. J. 11. Scott sustaining,in his usual elective manner, the principal character. The same pieces will be presented to-night, with the like powerful cast.

But all who saw him at once noticed that Herr Alexander was no juggler or charla tan, but a philesophor, a man of science. He remains here ouly through this week. Al?umr\.?This charming little place of amusement is nightly filled with the most fashionable audiences.? Monsieur Phillipo, Miss Mary St. Clair, and the humo rous Dr. Valentine are delighting the people there. The oratorio of " Samson" is to be performed by the Sacred Music Society, at the Tabernacle, on Kriday next. The chorus will consist of about -V>0 performers. OlkBullawd Mn Bchtom. ?We are requested to state that the accouut given in a Saturday'* paper, of the dispute between the aoove persons, did not contain all the facts of the ca?o. " Mr. Burton did provide a com petent orchestra for Mr. Bull's performances, and receiv ed instructions to copy the programme of a projected concert in New Yoi k, for publication in Philadelphia . but the concert in New York did not take place, and from the neglect of Mr Bull,or his agent, Mr. Burton was left without inforsaation of their intentions for several days. The concert at the Arch street Theatre could not take place on the evening expected, as no announce ment hail been, or could have been, made to the public, and several of the musicians engaged themselves to the Philharmonic Society for that evening. Mr. Bull's arrival in Philadelphia was unexpected by Mr. Burton, who acquainted him with the facts of the case, but did not require him to give his concert with the piano accompaniment. It was thon settled that the first concert should take place during the ensuing week. At the de tire of Mr Bull's agent, Mr. Burton advanced some money, to be repaid from the proceeds of the first con cert, but Mr. Bull quitted the city, and finally gave hi* concerts elsewhere. The money has never been repaid, nor has Mr. Bull in any way noticed Mr. Burton's appli cation for fulfilment ot the contract. The manner ami time of the arrest at Baltimore, depended on the Sheriff." The Keuns drew a tremendous house, in Boston, on Tuesday evening, to witness their personations of Bea trice and Benedick, in "Much Ado about Nothing." The Bostonians are delighted with them. Last evening Mr. Kean played "Hamlet." Leopold De Meyer has arrived in Boston, and will give his first concert at the Melodeon, to morrow night. Mr. Thomas I'lacide is in Cincinnati. Vieux Temps is shortly to be married to a distin guished artiste on the piano, Mile. J. Kder, of Frankfort. Police Intelligence. Nov. 19.?Burglary?Important Jrresta ?Thos. Gould and John McGuire (boys) were arrested last night by Cant Fitzgerald of the 4th District, and when brought before the Chief of Police confessed to the chief and two policemen, named Hemary and Watson, the fact of com mitting several burglaries, and to whom they had dis posed of the property?consequently, by direction of tha chief, the boys took the oiheers to the premi.es of William King, a barber, keeping his shop under Dun nine's Hotel, in Courtlandt street, also to his residence, 151 Varick street. On King's premises, were found thir ty-two silver Lepine watches, a quantity of cutlery, such as pen-knives, See., some remnants of cloth, silk handkerchiefs, suspenders, kc-, whicb proved to be the i.rorerty of John Newbold, No. So John street, and Messrs. St. John, Tousey St Co., 84 Broadway, whose premises were burglariously entered some few nights airo The officers also arrestod Samuel Jackson, the journeyman of King, and upon seaiching hiy.erson they found several stolen articles, forming a parf of these bur elaries. The Chief, Justice Osborn, and the.officers, de serve great ere lit for the skilful manner in which they have done up this business in securing the receivers as well as the thieves, and finding the property. Since the above was^written, we have just learned that officers Huthwaite and Norris have, in addition to the above ar ticles, recovered a quantity of tailor's sewing silk, also some very valuable silk handkerchief!. .1 Funny Scent in the Police Offiee.-Joseph Gulick, the militia fine collector, was followed in by a large crowd oi spectators, he having in custody a young man by the name of Samuel Madden, who had been <lned $5 [or his utter dislike for military tactics, and placed is the hands of that industrious individual for collection. Mr. Madden objected strongly to see the inside ef hldridge street jail-consequently, he drew from his pocket a piece of paper written thereon by the general, or by his order, remitting the said fine. Mr. Gulick took the pa n?r to read, an J very deliberately put it into his pocket, when the brother of the young man stepped up and de manded the return of that important document in very strong terms, which ultimately fioished in all parties coming to the Police Office. Mr. Gulick, however, gav > back the paper before arriving at the Police?the mail ? trate having no jurisdiction, the case was dismisse.1 Mr Gulick still detained the young man lor his expen? e? ^whereupon, the brother of the prisoner, offered to pay Gulick the eighteen shillings which he claimed; this Gulick would not consent to receive, stating that he must see some General or President of the Court before he could let his prisoner go-therefore, upon looking for his man to leave the office, ilo, he could not bo found, he having slipped out of the office the back way into Franklin street, to the groat amusement of all pre sent which raised quite a laugh. But not so on the poor militia man, who looked rather flat at losing his pri.o nor being dished out of his fees. The prisoner was last .p(,n making track* ui>on the railroad .some where in the vicinity oi Union Square, with the tail of hie coat straight out behind. Harnlaru-?The store of Mr. F. Gurnee, hardware merchant, No 4H West street, was burglariously en tered last night, and iobbe.1 of a large amount of proper ty consisting of valuable table cutlery, pen knives, &c.

Hoiking a Room-Mate.-Louisa Smith,-commonly known as French'Louisa-in her evening's walk, pick ed up a Mr Roman, who was struck with her personal *race and easy manners-accepted an invitation to spend i few hour* in her lovely society-therefore accompani ed her home to her lodgings- the Itoman thought he felt like taking a little "Roman punch'"?so he said, my dear Louisa will you be kind enough to step out for some thing to drink?at the same time giving her a Spanish doubloon to exchange. This kindness was too much lor I ouisa for she did not return with the change, but left the poor Roman to play with his fingers, until finding he had but a very poor sight for his money, he left this "crib " and applied to Justice lloome, who caused the fair damsel to be brough un to account for the doubloon, by committing her for trial. .? Peter Funk Ouldmr. A countryman who had iust arrived in the city, strolled into one of those dens called mock auction shops in Broadway, and there was indu ced to bid on a watch.which be was told by the "Ieters around him was a gold watch Consequently it was knocked down to him fort 10, when he handed up the money and they handed him the watch, but instead of being gold it was nothing but a shaWby looking copper one whereupon he demanded his money back agiun, declaring lie would ge to the Police One of the " Pe ters" stepped up to him and said, "Here, I'll go with you to the police,' so off they started When coming to the corner of Fulton and Nassau St., Mr.Peter" said to the countryman "go to h?11 and your police too I his was rather too much the countryman thought, so he up list, and knocked Mr. "Peter" over, and gavo him a sound drubbing.

Sandlord's 1st division of Artille ry. It appears that Goneial Morris and General Hunt have, for some time past, desired to discontinue the pa rade on Evacuation Day. for reasons, doubtless, best known to themselves. But Gen. Burns, who is an ob stinate old Knickerbocker, refuves to agree with them, because, as ha.asscrts, that Evacuation was the principal local affair which New York had to boast of during the whole of tbe revolutionary struggle. It wee, in snort, the " crowning rose of the whole wreath"?the winding up event 01 tho war; and not until the British, under | Carlton, had left this city, did the people really ieel that they were free; and when VVashiugton passed the folks of the Bowery, at 12 o'clock on the 26th of November, joy and gladness tilled the heart of every American cit izen. Uen. Storms, therefore, as he commands the same style Brigade that escorted Washington into New York on that day, insists, next Tuesday, to assemble his own Brigade, on his own Knickerbocker hook, on Washing ton I'arade Ground, march to the forks of the Bowery, precisely at noon, (the hour at which Washington pass ed) fire a gun, (the biggest he has got,) march down to that point of Orand street where the old city gat* stood, and there give three cheors; then march down to the Battery, have the national flag hoisted by a lineal des cendant of the man who ascended the slushed Hag start',

We like this spirit, and trust that all the militia volunteer companies, with their olticers mounted, will join so no Me and patriotic a parade. A national salute will be tired by Col. Delavan, at Kort Washington, at sunrise, and at McUowan's Pass, at 10 o'clock. New Fkbry.?We understand that a regular lino of ferry boats are to run from the Battery to Gowanus. '1 bis will bring Greenwood Cemetery within twenty minutes of New York, and greatly shorten the distance to Kort Hamilton. German Hebrew Benevolent Societt.?The annual dinner of this society took place last evening at 7 o'clock, at tbe Minerva Rooms. About two hundred and fifty gentlemen, principally German, sat down to dinner The dinner was provided by .Mr. Backman, and the manner of getting it up, and the materials of which it was composed, reflected great credit on him as a caterer. Alter the cloth was removed, several speeches were made and toasts drunk. On the whole, it passed oft' very agreeably. New York Historical Societv.?The forty-first an niversary of this body will bo celebrated this evening at half past 7 o'clock, when an address will be deliveicd in the chapel of the University. Useful Book to Shipmasters aud Owners.?We have before us a book, neatly printed on good paper, and of convenient lorm, entitled, " An abstract of the Laws of the State, aud Ordinances of the Corporation of the city of New York, in relation.to vessels, wharves, slips, basins, wrecks, and salva'ge, by Wm. Jay Haskett, Counsellor of Law, 8tc." We havo carefully run over it, and find that it contains all that its title purports?a judicious compilation of the laws of our State and city, for the especial use ol shipmasters and owners. Its merit consists in the proper arrangement ot the several statutes and ordinances, and the penalties attached to the violation of them. The tariff of wharfage?the law of steamboats?gunpowder in vessels?and of quaran tine, are set forth at length, and should lie perused by every shipmaster. The Chief of Police has ordered a number of copies for the use of the policemen, who, since the passage of the Municipal Police Bill, exercise the ollice of dockmasters ; and, in self defence, the ship mafter should bo armed with a copy to protect himself from the vexation and costs, which necessarily follow a violation of the laws. In the conclusion, we perceive a " Shipmasters' Directory," containing the names and place* of business of our principal snip chandlers, ship grocers, ship joiners, and sailinnkers. We are in formed that this book is to be had at any of the ship chandler stores in the city?a very proper place , by the bye, for the sale of this useful book. Look oi)t for Pickpockets.?Last evening three gen tlemen had their pockets picked of large amounts of money, as they were entering Niblo's. "Labor in New York"?The Rao Pickers.?This highly respectable and useful class of artizans is much more numerous in this city than many would imagine. Their hours of labor are from about 1 o'elock till 0 A. M. On any morning between these hours any gentle man, who from some cause has been prevented from seeking repose until that late hour, can see these artists in all the streets of the city carrying a huge bag slung over their shoulders and armed with a long pole, at the end of which is a hook with which they pick up rags, bones, paper, and in tact every thing that can be of the least possible value. These articles they sell, and from tho products^receive a subsistence. We shall continue a lint of the different classes of laborers in New York, at suitable periods.

The delegates to this Convention met yesterday morning at 11 o'clock, in the Mulberry street cha pel. The church was crowded with visitors, and considerable interest manifested in the proceedings. It 13 expected that the question of " slavery" will come up some time during the session, and a stormy debate may possibly occur. The Convention was called to order by th# Rev. Fruncis Wayland, D.JJ., President of Brown Uni versity, Providence, R. I. Prayer was then oflered by the Pastor of the Church. The roll of members was now read, after which the President read the resolution in pursuance of which the Convention had been culled. The Secretary read the proceedings of the Board of Managers, which set forth that in consequence of the southern portion of the Convention having seceded, and formed a Missionary Society at the south, it was necessary to hold a special meeting for the purpose of making some alteration in the constitution and rules. Rev. Mr. Sowers moved that thii Convention meet du ring the session at 9 o'clock in th# morning and adjourn at 3 o clock in the afternoon, which was adopted. Rev. Mr. Core introduced the following resolutions with appropriate remarks relative to the labors of Mis sionaries employed by the Baptist Churches, and spoke in a feeling manner ot the employment of Mr. Judson and wife in Burmah. Resolved, That this Convention regard it as a special occasion lor gratitude to the God of all grace, that he has so long pieserved the life of our senior missionary, the Rev. Adoniran Judson, and has strengthesed him to perform services of inestimable value for the perishing heathen. Resolved, That the President be requested to express to our brother Judson assurances of the pleasure with which we welcome him to his native land; and of our heartfelt sympathy with him in the painful circumstan ces which have withdrawn him, as we hope only for a season, from the field of his missionary labors. The resolutions were adopted, and the Rev.,Mr. Judson was introduced to the Convention. Dr. Wayland addressed him, saying it was with no or dinary emotion that he performed the duty assigned him ?"You," said the President, "may say with the Apostle to the Gentiles?'henceforth let no man trouble me, for I bear in my body the marks of trie Lord Jesus.' " In con cluding, he, in the name of himself and of the Conven tion, extended to brother Judson the right hand of fel lowship. Rev. Dr. Jtdson being unwell,made his acknowledge ments to the President, who interpreted them to the Con vention. He asked their prayers that he might bear with humility the kind reception every whero extended to him. Rev. Dr. Cone, Chairman of a Committee appointed at the last meeting of the Convention, to make such altera tions in the constitution as were necessary,made a report. The committee propose thr.t this Convention shall hero alter be known as tho American Baptist Missionary Union, and that it shall consist oi lifo members. The members of the present Convention shall be life mem bers, and all others who seek to become members of the Union shall be constituted life members on the payment of the sum of one hundred dollars, Several other alterations were also contained in the report, which was ordered to be printed ?600 copies. A communication from the InJian Mission Association to tho Convention, in relation to the Indian Missions ol tho Board, and their present position, and recommending lurther action in this regard, asking directions, he., was received, read, and referred to a committee appointed by the President. The President called upon the Chairmau of the Com mittee, who drew the constitution of the proposed " Union," to give a statement of the conclusions that document presents. Dr. Conk thereupon came forward, and said that the duty assigned the committee had been prayetl'ully and carefully discharged, and great pains had been taken to make it a constitution not to be easily liable to altera tion. They had fixed upon the name of " Union," a missionary " Union," as being general and harmonious in its meaning. A Convention is to be formed of life members,?thus permanency is secured to the board. An annual meeting is to be held of the board, to meet wherever it may please. Life-membership to be made by the payment of $100, or some other sum. Seventy five to constitute a board of managers. The necessity for this arrangement had long been felt. This board of managers to consist of clerical and lay members. If the clergy have more faith, remarked the chairman, the private brethren have more money ; beside, they have business knowledge, and their prayers, with the conse cration of their time and wisdom to the duties of the board of management, would havo the eft'ect of prevent ing those pecuniary perplexities which were now so deeply felt. The Executive Committee of the " Union" to consist of nine members. Upon this plan, thus briefly stated, the Convention unanimously agreed. Rev. Mr. Peck, of New York, asked if this new ar rangement would aflect the charter of the Baptist Gene ral Convention for Foreign Missions?if a new charter would not be required in order t? establish the proposed " Union." The Chairman said he did not think the present charter very valuable, and he thought that the sooner they got a new charter, th<) better. Still he did not think the pro posed constitution would aflect it. Hon. Mr. Duncan, of Massachusetts, moved that the consideration of the report of the committee be made the first businnss in the morning. Carried. Rev. Mr. Cone introduced to the President?Rev. Mr Abbott, from Sandoway, Arracan mission; Rev. Mr. Da venport, from Banghok, Siam mission, and Rev. Mr. Kincaid of the Arracan station. These introductions were followed by the extension of the tight hand of fellowship. Rev. Mr. Bennett now offered a prayer, and the Con vention took a rocess of thirty minutes. Upon again assembling, prayer was offered by the Rev. Mr. Webb, of Philadelphia. No business being ready, the Rev. Mr. Peck offered a prayer. The congregation now sung ? " The morning light is breaking." Rev. Mr. Ives, of Conn., addressed the throne of Graoe' Rev. Mr. Hagcc, of Boston, meved that the congrega* tion sing? " Blow ye the trumpet, blow !" This motion wai sceonded, acd the trumpet was ac cordingly blown. Prayer by the Rev. Mr. Love, of Athens, (Greece.) Rev. Mr. Cushmsn, of Boston, said he wished to movo that a committee of five, the President to be ch cirman, be appointed to prepare an address, on the part of the con vention, to the Kmperor of Burmah, requesting him to extend his projection to the Missionaries preaching the Goxpel of Christ in his empire, and allow those of bis subjects, who may be converted, to became members of a Christian church, &c. Mr. Cuihmah said he thought good would grew out of it. He thought the Emperor of Burmah would listen to a respectful address from one-fourth of the people of the United States. Rev. Mr Welsh wished to know what Mr. Jndson thought of it. Upon motion, the resolutions were referred to a com mittee of five, for their consideration. A committee of three was appointed to consider the subject of religious exercises during the session. The committee en credentials bow reported. A motion was made that the churches and bodies in connexion with this convention have a right to the same number of delegates at this session a* at the last trien nial convention, although appointed in 1844 Dr. Core thought the resolution unconstitutional. Dr. Peck called for the reading of that part of the constitntien ?which relates to this subject. The constitution was read, and the resolutions adopted. Prayer by the Rev. Mr. Putnam. The convention now adjourned, to meet this morning at 9 o'clock. In the evening, the Rev .'Dr. Sf.aiis, of Newten, Mass., E reached an eloquent an interesting sermon in the Mul erry street Church. At the Oliver street Baptist Church, a number of mis sionaries, who have lately returned to recruit their health, had assembled. We found the Rev. Mr. Abbott,who has been station ed as a preacher in Arracan for the last ten years, speak ing as we entered. After alluding to the return of Paul from his missionary labors, and his rehearsal to the 1 Church of what God had done, he remarked that what was proper for missionaries in those days was proper for them now. He did not intend to rehearse privato mat ters, but wished to show those who had supported them that their means had not been spent in vain. He wished to show what God had done. He had been in Arracan for many years, and considerable suocess had attended his efforts in spreading the gospel among the Karens. The accounts had been repeatedly published in the maga zines. Just before I left, (said Mr. Abbott) I attended a meeting ol native preachers and converts. There are now 3000 nominal Chiistians in that country, and as many more under conviction, not baptized. There are two ordained pastors, twenty-three native ossistauts, and four churches. But I was obliged to leave them without a missionary, and tliey are now watching anxiously for my return. These pastors were ordained in 1S43. Much anxiety is manifested among the natives to have the gospel preached to them. Many Karens in llurmah have abandoned their country and homes nnd come to Arracan, where tbey could enjoy christian, civil and religious liberty. One hundred and twenty-five of these settled in the village of Ongkvoung, but the cholera appeared, and spread death ami terror around ; hundreds ol converts and natives died the vil lage was depopulated. In 1840, I visited one ol the villag es. The Karens were in the most wretched and miser able condition. An unconverted Karen is always the , most filthy creature living?se the Missionaries have a saying, " when we go among them we take the Bible in one hand and soap in the other." The Idea of washing their persons or their clothing, or combing their hair never enters their heads. But now that village is a dif ferent plaoe: since the oonversion of its inhabitants every thing is neat and clean. You may enter their churches and near them pray and sing as you de hero This is only one village; there are many more. You have spent your money in a good cause. The coat of supporting a native preacher is very trifling; $35 a year will pay all his expenses. These native preachers, however, have received only about fib a year; the balance has been furnished by christians there. Mr Abbott now appealed to the audience to suppor t the missionary oauie, and send more men to preach the Bible. The Board Is poor, and if missionaries are sustained they must be by contributions. I think you will pray for the missionary, but if yo* give money freely you will pray more. There is much to contend with. The Roman Catholic priests are prowling about among the Karens trying to saduce them from us. j They tell them that we are not ordained?that we are | not the successors of the Apostles -that we sre very good men so far as they know, but that wo are the fol lowers of a man named Luther, who wxnted to get mar ried, and so left the church and established a sect for | iiimself. They try to get our assistants from n?, but have not succeeded in a single instance. Iia spoke of 1 tho death of Mr*. Comstock, wife of a missionary, who died at Ramree, on the 38th of April; JOOO natives had | congregated about hei grave,waiting and weeiimg-they were not christians, but had sympathy and feeling. Mrs. Comstock's two children ami Mr. Comstock shortly fol lowed this estimable woman Mr A bbott concluded by appealing to the audience to support the miaaions, and tend out with him two pragrherc.

Flint.?An alarm of fire was given about six o'clock last evening, caused, as it subsequently appeared, by the burning of a chimney at the house of Air. McMnnns, butcher, in Smith itr jet. But very little damage waa done, although at one time the sparks on the shingle roofs oftho adioining premises greatly endangered the build ings, and gave token of much devastation. We are in formed that not a single fire company in the city turned out on the occasion.

In addition to a largo stock of the staple com modity of renowned Waathersfield, the persons alluded to will embark a large quantity of dried peaches and other fruits, and will unite with their promising venture several cases of clocks, from the most celebrated manu factory of that article in the United States. Steamboat Launch.?Yesterday afternoon a steam boat to be called "The Perry," was'launched from one of tho ship yards between Jay and Bridge streets, iu Brooklyn. The vessel is intended to run between New port, B. 1 , and Fall River, and is to be commanded by Captain Woolsey. Weekly Report ok Deaths.?The number of deaths in Brooklyn for the week ending on Saturday last was fourteen; of which six were adults, and eight children. City Hospital?The subscriptions for ground on which to build this edifice are going bravely on. The prospect is fair that before long arrangements will he made for its erection. Of course the Common Council will make a liberal provision for its annual support, and for the employment of competent surgeons and physi cians to attend patients who may be brought within its walls. Temperance Meeting.?A very respectable audience assembled on Tuesday evening, at the Rev. Dr. firpd head's church, in Henry street, in pursuance of an an nouncement that the meeting would be addressed uy the Rev. Thomas Spencer, an Episcopal clergyman, of Bath, England. The Rev. gentleman delivered an excellent discourse, according to appointment, iu which he gave some details of the progress of temperance in England and Ireland, whioh was listened to with marked and at tentive interest. When he had concluded, the Rev. Dr. Cox, of this city, favored the auditory with some remarks upon the subject, interspersed with several interesting anecdotes. llavlKatlon of the Olilo lllver.
