NEW YORK HERALD. X?w York, Tuesday, June '4, 1840. New* from Europe. The steam ship liibornia is now tine at lloston. i She left Liverpool on the 19th ult., and will, there tore, bring ten day* later intelligence. It is thought that the news will be highly interesting. European Interference In the Mexican War. From the day when Mr. Polk delivered his celebrated inaugural message, declaring, among other things, the )>erl'ect right of lite several na tions composing the continent of America, to I manage their own affairs?irrespective of the wishes or interference of any of the European powers, and particularly irrespective of the de sign that has been manifested by those powers to u?tabLish what they style a "balance of power" on this continent, similar to that which has, for a long time, been established in the old world, nntd the present time?the subject of foreign interference has, more or less occupied the atten tion of the press, and the people of the United States. More attention has been devoted to this subjeot since the breaking out of hostilities with Mexico, 1 than at any previous time, and many surmises and opinions are broached and given, as to the course the two principal powers of Europe, France and England, and the two principal ones, too, in laying down the principle of an American balance of power, will adopt in the present condition of af fairs. The moment the accounts of the recent brilliant victories by the American arms on the hanks of the Kio Grande reach those countries, the sagacious and far seeing ministers of each will ?re, at once, the complete frustration of their hopes of procrastinating u settlement of the difficulties that have for so long existed between the United States and Mexico, and in prospective, the anni hilation af their desires of establishing a monarchy in the latter country. Under those circumstances the course that those countries will probably pur sue, in the present crisis, is a matter fraught with deep and abiding interest to the philanthropist, the patriot and republican throughout the world. To the American people peculiarly the question is momentous, for th?y are the instrument in the hands of a superior power, to carry out practically the will of that power, which is, that mankind are free and equal, and capable of self-government. Let this principle be carried out to perfection, as it has been partially, and the monarchies, the des potisms and tin; tyrany of Europe must fall as enow before a summer's sun. Although the commercial relations at present existing between the United States and England and France, wouid seem to divest the interference ol those countries in any American question of all probability or even possibility, it must be re membered that the day the Declaration of Inde pendence was promulgated, that day was marked as the commencement of the decline and eventual lall of all governments that were not based on the voice of the majority?in other words, if the grand experiment which was that day, for the first time in modern ages, broached, should succeed, it was the death knell to monarchy and despotism, in whatever habiliments it might be concealed. The success of that experiment sealed the fate of all governments, other than those founded on the principles proclaimed in that declaration of free men. The governments of Europe know this. In view, then, of the recent transactions on the Rio Grande, the question is, will the governments of either France or England, either by diplomacy or force, attempt any interference in our present quarrel with Mexico! Will they hazard the loss of the advantages they acquire from the commer cial relations that exist between them and the ' United States, for the purpose of carrying out the doctrine of establishing a balance of power in j America 1?or will they interfere and apply fuice, if necessary, to carry out the same principle, in stigated by the instinct of self preservation, which actuates governments as it does individuals, for the purpose of either permanently arresting the growth of the United States anil the progress of free government, or accelerating that crisis ' between the governments of the old world and tbose of the new, which sooner or later will, and in the nature of things, must ensue 1?that grand conflict which on one side will witness arrayed, the prejudices, bigotry, in tolerance, narrow mindedncss, cxclusiveness, vassalage, and bigotry of monarchial govern ment ; and on the other, the liberty, expan sion, progression, improvement, freedom and liberality in the broadest sense of the term of democratic institutions 1?that grand conflict of mental and physical strength, wlfich will cither nip freedom in the bud, and the din and turmoil of which will be the requiem of free go vernment, or which will bind still closer the fet ters that encircle the limbs of the human family on the old continent, and make the many submit to the favored few. We have been informed from an authentic source, that anticipated action has been had be tween the powers of England and France on this question, and it is reported lrom the same authen tic sources, that as soon as the recent victories on the Rio Grande are reconled in the newspapers of France and England, the combined action jointly agreod upon, and te be resorted to in case events might turn out as they have, will be imme diately called into play, and that immediately we may look for the arrival of a British and French fleet in the Gulf of Mexico, to be called the fleet of observation, the destiny and duty of which wil be similar to that of the fleet in South America, to hover round, observe and mark the course of events; and in the event of an opening being made, to interfere in the hostilities between Mexico and the United States, and if force is re quired to stop the tide of invasion that has been determined by our Government should run into Mexico, and on the plea of establishing a balance of power, make a tool of Mexico to carry out their ultimate designs. This information we have re. ceived from an authentic source. What, then, is the duty of the United States under those circumstances T Her duty is plain enough. Let the 50,000 men authorised by Congress be brought into the field at the earliest moment pos sible?let the campaign 1>? carried on with the utmost vigor?let all our purposes be carried out, if possible?let the fleets be enlarged and increased ?but if any interference like that be ottered, let it be met as becomes us?let the erisis|be met, if it is forced upon us?let the world see that the people of the United States are grateful for the blessings showered upon them?if need be, let the enemies of free government bo met at the threshold, and let the result be in the hand* of an all-wise and bcnificent Providence, who, for seventy years, has guarded ant* protected the in terests of the United State* We need not fear what that result will be. We can in six months have an army of 100,000 men in the field, each man as good as the heroes of Palo Alto and Re turn (it la Pnltna?and a fleet of fifty vessels of war, manned by 25,000 tars, as brave as the breeze ?f the Atlantic ever blew upon. The war of ihe French Revolution, in favor of liberty against despotism, may be re-opened on this continent. Prepare for the worst. Akrival OF THE Havr*.?This beautiful pack et, under command of Capt. Ainsworth, has just completed another splendid voyage. She arrived here yesterday, from Havre, in the exceedingly short passage of twenty-four days, and but nine teen from the Lizard. This is following close upon the heels ol the Great Britain. HTBAMSHir Grrat Western. ? This vessel, eight days out, from this port for Liverpool, was spoken on the 16th alt., in lat. 40 20, Ion. 41?by he ship Washington, at this port. Mori of the Txmfutom Wu.?W? have not done yet. We notice that our pious, moral, peace loving neighbor of the Tribunt, who has the hu manity to advocate the cause of the black-inail levying, throat-cutting, plundering runcherot of Mexico, and calls the necessary defence of our borders against the inroad* of Mexican banditti . an unholy violation of our peaceful relations, lias 1 joined in the petty crusade against the vocalist, Templeton. This Fourierite nest of philosophers, | who elevate their hands and turn up their eyes in holy horror at the deserved punishment inflicted ; on a band of Mexican marauders, think it no ; harm to join in a malignant hue-and-cry against j a poor travelling vocalist, and not only strive to j injure his professional reputation, but actually as sist at the production of a foul and slanderous ? defamation of his private character, which is cal- ! culated to carry dissension and strife into the bo- | som of his family. That our readers may judge of the consistency of our pious contemporary, we will give, at length, an advertisement that ap peared in the columns of the Tribunt of yester day :? i,# p?ww?a?a rew d?,., vocdiit ,h?? in! tpnv ? blopral'll>' of John Templeton; ?k ir r # o 5 oariy piety wben connected with f t. , of Scot/and, iiii travel, through the nrarinii.

WW he .old bya? boo&cUen It will be seen by tins extract from the immacu late columns of the Tribune, that the pious man lor the sake ol a paltry dollar and a half perhaps! lias descended to the meanness of publishing a v.le and slanderous advertisement of a still more vile and slanderous work, wliich is calculated however despicable the source from which it emanates, to disturb Mr. Templeton's domestic Peace, and to wound in the tenderest point the leelmgsol his wife and family. What next? The pious defender of the British enormities in the war of the Punjaub, who has still such a holy hor ror of American wars, that hfi> strove to quench the patriotism of our citizens, and to paralyzo the arm of the government in making necessary pre parations for the defence of our territory, now stoops to the disreputable office of assisting, as head nurse, at the parturition of a brood of vile slanders, intended to crush a meritorious artist, 1 whose only crime is that ho refused to be plun dered by a set of harpies who besieged him with their black-mail demands as soon as he arrived in this country. Now, it is said that we have called this man, Chrehugh, a hair-dresser. True, in our expo,* of his attempts at levying black-mail, proved by the declaration drawn by his attorney, a docu ment-tho genuineness of which it >s impossible or him to deny-we have spoken of him as a mur-dresser, and we are not aware that he pro fesses to be anything else. In fact, we bleicve that he claims to be one of the first hair-dressers and barbers in the city, although we do not think >1111 by any means as good as our friend Jim Grant, of Ann street, who lias performed all our tonsoncal operations for a number of years in the most artistic and masterly manner. We certainly vair ciireh^h a. hamed of his calling and it is not our fault if he feels aggrieved by being called a hair-dresser. i lnw ^ Tt0 CaU thmgS by their ri?ht names ai dTl Wrr La b00t"maker>a boot-maker; and a barber, a barber ; a scoundrel, a scoundrel, i . 0r we see any reason why lie should be ashamed of being called a Scotchman. We always believed that he was a native of Scotland (for which we feel extremely sorry,) and therefore we spoke of him as a Scotchman. If he assume to be anything else, we shall most gladly make the necessary correction. It will aflord us the greatest pleasure imaginable. It will be seen by the advertisement which we have copied from the pages of our pious contempo rary, that the enemies of Mr. Templeton, having failed in injuring his professional reputation as a \ocalist, have dragged from the foul sinks nf ancl defamation, libellous charges of the gros sest nature against his private charactor. This attempt is characteristic of the shameless and im pudent parties who made an attempt to make wholesale levies of black-mail on this poor vocal ist, and who now vent their malice and disap pomtment at the failure of their mercenary at tempts in scandalous misrepresentation. We should be sorry to ascribe to the gentlemanly proprietor of the Tribune any part in the appear ance of this disreputable advertisement, or the equally mean editorial remarks. Mr. McEIratli is a member of the church, and a gentleman, and we believe him to be incapable of sanctioning such a transaction. Of poor Mr. Greeley we really know not what to think. There is a crack in his head somewhere, and, from present appearances, we fear that this crack is becoming wider and wider every day. We do not know where it will end. His friends should look to him. Patriotism and War.?In this city, three signal offers have been made to the President, of aid in the war against Mexico-Captain Rynders, of the Empires; Gen. Arlington Bennet, of the Mormons; and Gen. George Washington Dixon, ol the Eternals and Intellectuals. These offers have, probably, been referred to the Governor of New York, who may call them lorth. Gen Dixon is preparing to go to Yucatan, to invade Mexico from the south, with a troop of two hun dred aswe find by the following reply to Miss Julia Dean, of die Bowery, who presented the troop widi a stand of colors, and made a speech ?

Military Spirit of R?w York wilt Th? Hickory Bines In the Field. Omt Meeting mt Military 11*11. Pursuant to notice n very large anil enthusiastic meeting of the young men of the city of New York, assembled ut Military Hall, in the Dowery,laateve ning. The object of the call for the meeting was, [ to,rai*e a sufficient number of volunteers to fill the ranks of the "Hickory Blues," under the com mand of Alexander Ming, jr., Esq., to proceed to the Rio Grande, vindicate the honor of the United States, and strike terror into the hearts of the ran cheroi of Mexico. At eight o'clock we found the large room in the above building filled to its utmost capacity, by a very enthusiastic assemblage, who appeared to be animated by one spirit, one heart and one object. After Mr. Ming hud delivered a brief and spirit stirring address, the roll was unfolded, and the names of the volunteers were subscribed with great rapidity. At i? uiual in such cases, there was some hesitation at flrnt about signing the roll, but the ice once broken, tho stream ran, overwhelming everything in it* course. In thii Instance the ice wu broken'by an eccen tric character named Teal, who had the honor of being tlic first man enrolled in the rank* of the " Hickory Blue?" of New York. After Mr. Teal subscribed hit name, an immense crowd assembled around the platform. He addressed those present in pretty mucn the following style. Come, Col. Ming, 1 have stuck down my name, but mind you, I am going to fight, and 1 expect you to go too ! Will you ghtr If you are willing to fight, stick down your name as well as others. Come " whitebats," down with your names. Let us go to Mexico, and thrash the Dons. If you're killed, I'll take care of your clothes, and fetch them home to your mothers. Come, down with your names. Come along and do something for your country. Come, you can fight as well as others. Come, you'll all raaUe good soldiers. I'll go by them all, and so must you. Come, Col. Ming, will you fight? Well, (said Col. Ming) we'll Nee when we get there. After several had subscribed their names, Col. Ming addressed tho meeting as follows:? Kkllow Citizkns,?1 weuld inform you that we are limitod to tho fifteenth of this month'to fill the rank* of the Hickory Blues, and 1 have no doubt that before that time the number necenary will be enrolled, and more, too, will bo willing to be enrolled, if necessary. We, of the great city of New York direct public sentiment in everything. To New York the country looks for an ex position of that sentiment in politics, moral* and every thing else. We have liitened time and again to the speeches of our orator* of all political partic*. We have heard them declare time and again how ready they were to act; and, if need bo, *hed their blood in doience of our country; and we have now arrived at the time when it i* necessary to act as well as to speak?to back what we have so often reiterated?a time when it is necewary for every man who claims to be an American, to stand up and defend those gloriou* pinciple* which are guaranteed to u* by our consUtution. Mr. Ming continued in this strain longer, but our space will not allow u* to insert the whole of nis speech. The following song, composed for the occaiion by one of hi* company, wu then distri buted:? Tunb?Lucy Neal. Come, all ye gallant volunteers, Who tear not life to lose, The martial drum invitos ve, come And join the Hickory Blues. The gallant Hickory Blue*, The daring Hickory Blue*? To Mexico they'll proudly go, The gallant Hickory Bluet. Our flag is freedom's sunlit gem, Its stars light where we choose, And the gallant hearts that bear it on Are the gallant Hickory Blues !

Ming will be happy to re ceive the names of those who wish to go with him to Mexico, there to striko for the satisfaction due the United States, and in case of its not being granted, to obtain it at the cannon's mouth. 'Watering Place*. Schooi.et's Mountain.?The frequenter* of this favo rite summer resort will be gratified to learn that the most extensive and complete preparations have been made for their entertainment by the worthy proprietor of Belmont Hall, E. A. Hinchman, Esq. He has added a new bowL ing saloon to the establishment, and made various other arrangements conducive to the comfort and convenience of his guest*. We have no doubt that Schooley'a Moun. tain Spring* will be much reiorted to thi* summer, a* there are very few place* affording healthier air or exer ciie, or a more delightful lojourn, during the warm weather.

Tfce extraordinary and deserved success which has at tended the production of " Richard III." during their last and present engagement, and the desire to re-estab- i Ilsh the reign of the legitimate drama, has stimulated ! them and the management of the Park to new exertions, and they will open the next season with Spakspearian revivals, got up in the most magnificent and costly style. We understand that " Macbeth" and "King John" are Orstto be produced, with appointments and decorations similar in splendor and extent to those which marked the revival of "Richard III." There is no doubt that these I revivals will be attended with unbounded success. Mr I and Mrs. Kean are entitled to the gratitude of those emu lous of the suecess of the stage, lor their efforts to pro- 1 mote those splendid and effective revivals. Their career In this country has been distinguished beyend that of any other dramatic artisU that have appeared here for years' and yet we will venture to anticipate for their appear ance next fall, still more eclat than has yet attended them. Their success establishes the gaatifying fact, that the taste for refined acting, and for the works of the great dramatist, whose exponents they are, is still alive in the community. The morals of any community may be judged by its taste for the drama, and we feel gratified for the sake of our national character, that while the drama has been dying a natural death in England, the birth place of Shakspear, within the last few years, it ! has been revived to a surprising extent in America. To this revival the Keans have largely contributed ; and it affords us a great deal of pleasure to record the marked favor with which their efforts have been received. I Ma.

City IiUlll|Mi>i Wutk w rvauc Mokbt.?For some time put, com plaints have bMn repeatedly mad* to ua In rolatloa to tlia manner in which public monajr has been, and contin ues to be, squandered away in almost every department of the city government. During the past winter, it was by no memos an unusual tight to tee a number of labor ers at work akeveiiing snow from the side-walks around ! the Tombs, or carrying in a few loads of coal, intended to be used in the culinary department, or offices conneot ; ed with the City Prison; (each receiving a fair remune ration for their services,) while, perhaps, from thirty to forty able bodied loafers were allowed to remain idle, or even amuse themselves in any way they saw fit, within the walls of that building. It has been intimated, that, under the present <ni?>ini? tration of the city government, the tax payers' dollars have found another outlet in another quarter; and this the alms-house department From the information im f irted to us, we have reason to believe that there is less attention paid to economy in the disbursement of public money in this department, than we have a right to ex pect. It appears that there are several vehicles, horses and drivers, kept for such duty connected with the alms house department as the commissioner may assign them, such at the conveyance of sick and destitute persons from their at odes to the alas-house, or hospital, accord ing to the nature of the cases ; alto, for the conveyance of deceased pertont to the Pottert-field for interment, in catet whete their friends are unable to defray the burial expenses. It lias likewise been customary to employ these public vehicles, hortet and drivers to remove the bodies of such unknown persons as are found drowned in the docks, JStc., to the dead-house in the park, a building crected expressly for their reception, with a view of be ing seen and recognized by the friends of the deceased, and inquest being held upon them ; but of late, for some unexplained cause orj other, the men having charge of these public vehicles, See., have refuted to remove such bodies to the dead-house even when notified to do so by the coroner, in consequence of which, the latter is now compiled to employ other vehicles, horses and men, to jterform the necessary duty, and charge the expense in curred thereby to the Corporation; or, in other words, tho tax-payers of the city, while these men and horses, kept by the alms-house department, remain at ease in their respective quartera. These, and many other abuses of a similar character, are known to exist, and require the consideration of the powersthat be It is to be hoped that the subject will receive due attention, and render any further remarks unnecessary. Doctor Adams' Ducouaie.?A discourse, on the sub ject of the " New World, its History, and Prospective Relations to the Old," was delivered on Sunday evening in the Central Presbyterian Church, Broome street, by the Rev. Dr. Adams. The audience (as is usual when the reverend gentleman preaches) was both numerous and respectable, and the most marked attention was paid dunng the delivery of the discourse. It has been well remarked by an eminent author, that11 next to a just idea of the nature and object of pulpit eloquence, the point of Sreatest imi>ortance to a preacher is a proper choice of le subject on which he preaches." On all occasions, Dr. Adams carries this excellent maxim out to the very letter. In our opinion, a happier selection, and one more appropriate or better suited to tho times in which we live ?to the great events which are now developing them selves in the old and new world, both as regards religion and politics, and the results they are likely to produce, either for good or evil, on the future destiny of the human race?could not well be made. This attention to the ; proper selection of subjects, seems to be a distinguishing point in the character of the sermons of Dr. Adams. He commenced by an allusion to Genoa, which, he said, claimed the distinction of bein^ the birth-place of Christo pher Columbus, and then continued to trace all the cir cumstances which led to the discovery of this hemi sphere by that celebrated navigator, and the wonderful cnanges it had wrought in the then condition ol mankind and their future destiny. He then took up the subject of the reformation, and gave a minute and affecting account of the sufferings and persecutions of the early reformers, both in England and on the Continent, by the crowned heads of Europe. He showed that at the very time Henry VIII. protested against the supremacy of the Pope, and declared himself the head of the English Church, the slightest deviation, in other respects, from the canons of the ancient church was punished with the greatest se verity ; and during the reign of Elizabeth, although she had completely separated herself from the Pope, the same inconsistency and cruelty were continued towards tho dis senters. The discourse was purely historical, and intend ed to prove that the great principles of the reformation were not yet fully developed, and that it waa on this con tinent they were to be consummated.

Jt*!?c 1.?Robbery.?Some thieving scoundrel went on board the canal boat Hebe, lying at Pier No. 9 East River, on Saturday night, and stole therefrom be tween $30 and 140 in money, belonging to the captain, and made good bis eseape.

Preparing for the Rio Grande.?A Gormen, dressed in soldier's attire, by the name of John Ferber, was brought before Justice Smith at the Tombs, by two policemen of the 6th Ward, charged with attempting to cut people down with a drawn sword. It appears from the circumstsnces, the scene must have been a very laughable one. This Dutchman belongs to Governor's Island, and was out on furlough, when, after taking various 'schnaps' at the different rum holes on the Five Points, he declared himself ready for war, being at this time prettv well " corned:" consequently, he com menced in right good earnest by drawing his sword and placing himself on the edge of a little narrow street called f 'ow-hay " on the Kive Toints, in the gutter of which ran a stream of Croton water. Thus, his visirnary ideas were enlarged by the effects of the rum which extended his eye-balls to such a degree that the poor fighting Dutchman .saw nothing but the Rio Orande before him, at the same time swearing vengeence to all Mexicans. The way he made the niggers run was a caution to all sinners. One he " clipped*' over the shin, snd snother over the head, hut finally wound up by getting foul of the pump,which he belaboured most unmerciftilly, and would eventually have chopped its arm off, had he not fortunate ly been taken prisoner by two officers, who disarmed him and conducted him to We police office for safe" keeping. We understsnd that his company are to start for the Rio Grande to-day, where, in a short time, he will have an opportunity of distinguishing himself with the reality.? The Justice locked him up until sober.
