The blockading squadron had detained a great number ot small sloop? from Panama, and all the coast ot Buenos Ay res, laden with bides. Ttie situation of the inhabitants of Buenos Ayree id described hs moat deplorable. There was 110 bu?i- ! ness stirring, and no employment of any kind lor the population. The workmen, of all classes, do not earn enough to support themselves in the most miserable manner?every thing wan rushing towards utter ruiu. The occasional exercise of the troops was the only sign cf lite in the city?when that was not going on, a profound, alaiming silence reigned iu the city. The Rational of the 2;}J, contains an oiBcial communication f rom Colonel Garibaldi to the Mi nister of Wur, d?ited Uruguay, at the confluence of the Rio Nesro, of the 11th of September, iu which he iulorms the Minister ot War of his arrival at that point, and that he had succeeded in making good hid landing on the Island of Viucano. Me further informs the Minuter of his having captured several small vessels bearing the flag of Rosas, some ot which voluntarily surrendered, glad to make their escape from the enemy; he says, also, that the whole province ot Mercedes is ready to r.se tip in revolt against the authority ot Ro^an, and only waits tor this purpose the approach of the forces of the Republic to protect them. Another despatch from the same officer of the l?th of September, published in a subsequent | number of the Rational, stalee that he had surprised, and put to the rout, a detachment of the enemy, which was engaged in the cruel business ot driving the tamiltes residing 011 the frontiers, trom iheir homes, and forcing them to march for the in tenor He took the greater number of them pri soners?but few escaped alive. (The number ot this detachment is not stated ) He further intorms j the Minister, that the troops of the republic were con centrating themselves at this point?that Capt Leden na was oh his march, at the head ot eighty cavalry soldiers, regularly mounted and armed, also that a company ot inlantry was uboui to be landed, and that the arrival of tb'e remainder of the republican squadron was daily expected at the point from whence he dates his despatch, which had been com pletely evacuated by the enemy. The Montevideo Cunilduhonal of the 23d Se|> tetnber says that, by private intelligence received from that city, the blockade of the port bud been of ficiary announced, thirty days being jziven for neu tral vessels to clear rut, and torty eight days for the departure ot those diplomatic agents who might wish to quit the country. Three houses belonging to foreign merchants had ' been burnt down in the city. It appears certain that a force pi 150 men, belong ing to Rosns, which had arrived at Mercedes, h i I passed over to the Republican lorcesand united themselves with them Mercedes had.been taken by the troops ot the republic without resi-tance The National of the 25ih contains th** Declara tion of the Blockade, which we have before given, addressed to the Ambassadors of all foreign nations at B itnos Avres Tne blockade of the ports on all the coasts of Buenos Avres commenced on the morning of ihe 2lth.

Also, 11 is repeated that foreigners are resected at Buenos Avres, and pissports given to all who ask for ihem. Tne blockade of Buenos Avres was made known on tne 20 h, whereupon the American Ministerial mediaKly entered a protest ou the part of his go ?ernmenr, intimating the intention oi requiring 111 aemuificatton tor the loss and destruction of Ameri can property which may be ihe result of it. The t mperor ot Brazil arrived at Saint Catherine on the lltli of October, after a prosperous voyage ? He landed tne next dav, and would proceed to Rio Grande on the 24th. Ecstatic accounts are given ot his reception . The Oriental squadron had surprised and taken the town ot Gualeguaychu, capturing the garrison, commandant and munitions. Tnere were 74 foreign veaseli 111 the harbor of Buenos Avres, on the 2bth ol September, of which 14 were English, 10 American, 10 Spanish, 7 Bra zilian, 6 French, Jcc.

Gkxma.n On.**?The Fheischutz.?The removal of Carl Maria Von Weber's ashes from the unmusical and ungeuial soil of old England to Germany, his fatherland, was u worthy apotheosis of the illustiious dead. The first representation of the "Freischulz," in America?the adopted "fitimath" of three millions of Germans?by a German company, and beforo an audience chiefly con sisting of Germans, may lo called still a worthier one. It is true, this opera has already been performed in this country, but it has always been brought out in snch a miserable manner?in such a caricature like style, that we felt ashamed for the sake of the "Vaterlandn--for the soke of German music, of Iiaydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Spohr, nnd Mendelssohn. "We think that a new crn has begun in American musical life with Lhii movement' from which many beneficial result* justly might be ex pected, if the whole affair be managed with tact and cir cumspection. Till now, the elevated character of Gor. man music has been known from one side only, for, with the exception of a faar specimens of instrumental and sacred music, nothing has boen offered from which u somewhat adequate idea of its lofty standing could have been formed, uut now, the public will have an opt>or- ' tunity of hearing German opera?, They will hear mu sic which speaks lor itself, which possascea intrinsic value in abundance to dispense with scenic pageant and mero professional skill, it tfill perhaps cum them from the foolish hankering afiermodern Italian music; that girl \> itli the pretiy iac? and empty head ; ol that love of t weedle dum and tweedle-dec, which would be intolera ble if Italian 'iogern would not have taken mercy upon it .Vo better beginning could have been made than With the "Freischulz " i'liis opina enjoy i mi universal and un rivalled popularity. Don luan, the Baibier, tho Muette, unquestionably are popular opem, butthcr cannot ri val with the Freischutz. There are u great many people w ho do not know any thing of the "l* ei rfto/nV'oi the 'Lay an nl/i'ctotum," er the ".iomur tail k df Iu pah it t" but who is not l.imillar with the Hunting end too Bridesmaid's chorus, or tho Peasant's waltr ! 1 he Oct is that no cnm(>eser knew how to ? i inuol' i.on.i.nent aud irelu f into Sim mu?ifal id"?H. end to matte them to acceptable to put he wppetiie, wuhout getting trivial as Weber It is true his opeias do not possess that everlasting merit which distinguished those of Mo* it and Oluck, and which now produce tho same eituct apo.i tha listener thoy did on iheir appearance. Weber rather curpritos the ear. thiough a most urtistical combination ? an ertircly origi nal instrumentation, and an inspiiation, which spring'; more ftom the heait than from t&e aoul; whereui Mo zart and Gluck's sujierioiity lies in the elevution and gi t-atueis of their idea?, and in tho deep trutn o< musical expression. But the Epopee never could rival in popu lar! y with the lyrical poem, and Weber eminently is a lyrico-musi o poet. If we draw * parallel between the composers of the Fftiickwz'' and ?* RahtrlIt Diabtt," we cannot but be struck wuh tho lesemhlance tiu-se two great men and their works bear to each other, although they es nntially aud materially differ ui perhaps still more hu I greater points. This leaemtlaiice does not lie so much in the unisic itselt, although it is ea ily seen that both W her and Meyerbeer are ui.^ciple* ot one school'that of Ahbe Vogler, under whom both studied at the same time, in company win Ginshacher. Severe passages in " Ro bert" even show that Meyerbeer had not forgotten the "/YrueAtifr," principally its instiumentation But the ro semblance we allude to is to be found in the careei these two che/i d' auerr made. Both had already attained to an e*a!ted position a.^ composers?particularly Meyer beer,through his ororiato? but they teacheri the zenith of their glory onl v alter these production of the two works, which proved their n.oit popul.tr, although not their best. Alter the " Kieischntv" came 'Euianthe," a composition lai superior to its elder brother, as an artistiCHl and sci entific work, hut interior in the choice of happy melo dies In the "Huguenots," which followed "Robort le Diable,'' we And the same advantage and the same de tects. Meyerbeer has now to bring out a work ? qual to 1 Oheron,"for we will not say anything of his "Camp of Silesia," the composition ol which opera ho wtis obliged to hurry, at the expense ot his reputation, but to tha great pleasure ot his patron, the li ng of Prussia?the modern Alexander tl?<? Groat as Henry Heine calls him ?whobcgnii where the other lelt off?with taking to drinking. With regard to the execution and manner with which the opera was biought out, v;e can only say that it has far surpassed the expectation! which hud been forsnod. Of course, here and there a slight blemish may be lound, but tho tnitmblr. with which it went off. fully coinpor.satet for it. Above nil, we must give unqualifi ed praise to tho chorus- both male nnd female ?and th orchestra.

We could not help making these remarks in listening, | on l'uesiljy night, to Huber*! execution and composi tions, aud gladly g vc up puzzling our brains and dam ming up the current of admiration with metaphysical speculations Love of music is not any more a bud in his heart, but full-blown in a passion; it is young?for Huber in a young man?but clad in tbe mantle of experiuuee, ahiniLg in the light of many thought*. We will, there- i lore, not criticise his compositions - wo admiro them. As a | e.former, Huber ranks uppermost amongst the violoncellists; and witn the exception of Homborg-the Pagvuiniof the violoncello, now numbered amongst the ! dead?we do not know of any one who would un>te so many sterling qualities, although Lindloy and Batta may surpass him in ?. low speouliitios. With perhaps a lit tle losa sentiment in the adagio than Batta, be produces a much moro energetic tone?full, rich?bra wny-^avp might say Lindluy may, perhaps, cariy the paliffna | what is called the tricks of the trade, but he haa not the never-fading evenness of Huber. He outshines, of course, all the violouceliists who have visited America. Bohrur, with all tha requisites lor a great artist, has proved himself unworthy of that name, through the fa- j cility with which he sacrificed the interests of tho art to a wish to propitiate the good opinion of American audi ences. Oood opinions and dollars were, however, syno- 1 uimons with Bohrer. Casoella certainly was a very pleasing performer, but nothing more than nleasing. Huber'a principal merits consist in the excellency of lone, correctness and legitimacy of execution, surcness 1 in the most intricate passages, and unrivalled equlaity throughout his performance in general?his style is clas sic, without being monotonous. He was very much ap plauded in all his pieces, but principally in the vaca tions on the " Cachucha." Here he had the best opportu- , nity of showing his talents, both as a composer and a performer. Variations are so out of fashion, and the ".Cachucha" is now considered such u vulgar theme, that it required great imagination, supported by tho rough theoretical knowledge, to make the pieco palata ble. Huber haa succeeded far beyond that, for it un questionably is one of his best compositions, and it was, too, played in the most masterly style. Original K.TiiiorEAK St RK'tAOEns.?Messrs.

A critic, who at tended tho rohearsai, says :? "Mr. Wallace'* music is calculated to create a great ? unsation. lie has lYe -linesi and spontanacity of melody ina most captivating degree, and he has also n thorough , knowledge of the resources of an orchestra. The likre'lo is founded on the popular drama of "Don Ciesar de Ka zan." The incidents are closely followed, the dialogue otdy being of suilicient duration to connect the incidents. Mr. Wallace's themes are beautiful thoughts, springing out of a fertile imagination, satisfying at the same time tho exigencies and cravings of the learned. In his ovct ture he has a fugue led off vigorously by the basses, wi'h a contin d gush of happy subjects. Tho arcompa i lmontsure vnrird, and form apaikling imagery. Miss Romer enacts Mariana.

Stock^hat in reality are not worth a fiactlon, have fall* en sev?iil per cent from the point reached by previoua cornering operatjona, and this fall is attributed by many to the panic produced by feara of a rupture in our fo reign relations. The declino of sixteen per cent in Nor wich ^Worcester Railroad stock,and of thirteen par cent i in Long Island Railroad, in loss than ten daya, could hard ly have been produced by the actual ceramei\cement of hostilities, had the investments previously been anything near thoir real value. The stock that should first feel the effects of a panic growing out of any anticipated dif ficulty with any foreign power, would natu ally be that of the genoral government, but that stock ia firm at for mer quotations.

The annual report of receipt* and oxponditurei of this company, for the year ending December 3lst, 1816, will be oi a inoro favorable character than anticipated. The receipts have been larger than tho most liberal esti mate, and the expenditures have been reduced from t ine to time, as opportunities occurred.

The recaption of the resi dent's message in Oieat Britain will produce an Immense political excitement, which mu>t have an influence upon commercial affaire o a very important, and for t- e time of a very favorable character, so far aa the intererts o this country are conferred. Quotetiana for cotton wil without doubt advance under the movement, and speitf latora will, for the niomunt, bo exceedingly aclivo. Thi apprehension of a rupturo with this country will hava I very Iavorable effect tipou all description ot Americai merchandise, and a panic somewhat similar to that wt are now experiencing, will undoubtedly spread tkroagl tbe financial and comaercial circles of Europe. A se cond edition of the panic still raging in this market wil he upon us about the th&d week in January, but will increased force. Thore will be considerable growlinj on the other side, and many muttering, of tbe .upprease thunder, that may possibly break forth in some alarmin threats, which will give tho epeculative b ills la on at ck market another severe lesson in fiuance. The el feet of the Proaident'a message upon prices of breat atuA'a in Oreat Britain will, so far as we ore ablet judgo, be rather favorable to owners on this side. W merely allude to the temporary effect of theae thinj upon tho markets of Europe or of thia country, eithe one way or tbe other, as we have no idea tha It is goir to be otherwise. The panic in England will provide goo markets at belter prizes for our rurplus staples, but may depress tho market value of fctute sleeks nt bom and abroad, and induce many to remit those they hold, this country, for rale and for returns in aptcle.
