Affair* of the lllo Plain.?I'Mrcli^n Interfere lire. It is now nearly a year since the blockade of the Buenos Ayres ports \"as established by the French and English men of war, at the instance of their home governments, under the assumed purpose ef compelling peace between the conlltctm r governments of the Rio I'lata. The results of this blockade forcibly exhibit the ed'ects usually attending armed interventions, in the disagree* merit of foreign countries. In not one single instance has any nominal purpose of the combined forces been efleeted, while in almost every point of view the Argentine Republic, against whom particularly they war, has been benefited both politically and pecuniarily If Messrs. Guizot and Aberdeen had left the South American republics to settle their own difficulties concerning the privilege of navigating the Parana, and other caus?s ofdispute, in all probability every disagreement would have been adjusted long ere this, and the peace of the southern continent been attained ; but probably realizing the fact that their interference and principles would not, and have not been tolerated in the United Slates, the min isiers uirneu meir attention ana enorts to me acquiring of a preponderating influence in the younper and less formidable republics south of the Equator. Assuming lor a pretence the injury arising to foreign commerce from the unsettled state of the country, the French and English governments despatch an armed force to demand settlements favorable to themselves, prejudicial to other countries ; lailing in their lirst ell'orts, they side with the Montevidean government, which, to secure their co operation, yields to their pswer. The transatlantic governments have, consequently, ; not only placed on a permanent basis the hatred felt towards them by almost every domain in South America, but in addition to the expenses and loss of life attending a protracted blockade, have inflicted immense injuries upon their own commcice in that quarter of the globe. The Argentine republic, on the contrary, thrown upon their own resources, cut oft' almost entirely from foreign communication, have by calling into use every advantage of soil and internal improvement, enriched their territory, and developed the wealth of their home materials ; at the same time securing the sympathy and good wishes of every true republican from Behring's Straits to Cape Horn. The indignant feeling prevalent in the south apt'rom the source from w ich those offers come. : pears not so much toarisefrom repngnanee to offers to mediation or attempts at intervention as they do This is evident from the lact that almost every journal which we receive from that part of the world commends and advises all efforts to secure peace made by I nited States consuls or agents, on the ground that some reciprocal feeling of honorable intentions must necessarily exist between republican independencies; but against the armed efforts of monarchical European governments the same burst ol indignation falls as that which has been heard again and again in our own Senate Chamber. Indeed the very arguments and principles given to the world from our own heads of government and statesmen are quoted us precedents by the blockaded powers, to guide them in their course of action. " European interference cannot be tolerated on the western continent," says President Polk in his message, and this same assertion is the ground upon which at the present time European interference is resisted at the point ol the sword and to the cannon's mouth by General Rosas. What the lormer asserts in words, the latter effects by deeds. The example set by the first republic in North America is now uenig luiioweu oui uy me iirsi esiamisnea repuDlic of the south. Tliere may be no way in which our Government can ov< rtly assist the resistance made by the Argentine Republic to the combined forces, but she can by her instructions to, and the conduct of, her resident consuls, afford cncouragemcnt on the one side, and in the furtherance of her avowed principles protest against the conduct of the other. Let the assertions of Lord Aberdeen relative to the opinion in the United States respecting the Anglo-French intervention be publicly contradicted, for that they are mistakenly erroneous or wilfully false cannot be denied. His lordship signified that the American Government were perfectly satisfied with the policy pursued by the armed combination; and that the recall of the Hon. Mr. Brent was solely on the grounds of his opposition and protest to their intrigues. If these statements be true, we have hitherto been in darkness in relation to the course of the Washington cabinet, having understood that Mr. Harris, the successor of Mr. Brent, was explicitly instructed to adhere to the doctrines advanced by his predecessor; and either Lord Aberdeen is deceived or deceiving, or President Polk has acted in a manner diametrir*a 11ir /mnAinta tn tl?n? wKirtli l?*? l>n?l ?-???unrtiiol? ! ? .?I ueuw '"1" down lor his line of conduct. But we are confident that the Argentine News is correct in saying, "thatthe American government, so far from disapproving the course adopted by their minister, has through their Secretary expressly declared it to be in unison with American principles, and would be uncompromisingly followed up by the United States." In reference to this subject, we have published in our paper a part of a series of letters from a resident of Buenos Ayres, the continuation of which will be found in our columns to day ; and we strongly recommend them to the perusal of every American, who has at heart the march of republicanism, and the resistance to foreign influence on our continent. The democratic party will find in them a true following out of the principles avowed by their own leaders *, and the whigs will take interest in the efforts of a government whose independence was the first to be acknowledged by their own party, and who now in a justifiable cause war against the approach of their transatlantic invaders. These letters contain an accurate and impartial view of the state of things in and about the Rio Plata, and stri? kingly exhibit that in the ease of the Anglo-French forces, and those of Rosas, that the race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong.

' A(i?icui.ttjral Fairs?Tni Sciince of Farm- j i*a?Wo perceive that our farmers and agriculturist* throughout this and the neighboring State?t are preparing themselves for the great State agricultural fair and cattle show, which will take ^ place on the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth days of September next, at Auburn, under the direction of the State Agricultural Society. From what we have learned in regard to these preparation?, we ure disposed to think that the fair and cattle >how this year will be on a greater scale, that more animals of improved breed, and more of the productions of the field, the garden, and the orchard, will bo exhibited for competition, than in any former year. The amount of premiums to be distributed among the successful candidates, is greater, too, than ever before, while the site selected lor the occasion is probably the best in the State, not only on account of its being central, but also of its contiguity to the Erie Canal and the Western railroads. This society and others of the same kind, though on a more limited jcale, have been the means of increasing the agricultural wealth of the State to a degree highly honorable to the reputation of our ana aisoot promoting knowledge and intelligence among farmers, who, some years ago, were the most neglected class of our population. It is delightful for a man who has the science of agriculture at heart, to keep record of the great improvements in every department of it that have been made within a comparatively short time, through the inlluencu of fairs, cattle shows, and agricultural publications. Among these improvements wa may mention the benefits arising from subsoiling?from manuring properly, and saving manure?from judiciously using lune, peat, &c., in tho form of compost?from the rotation of crops?from sowing and feeding turnips and carrots?and also the results of tho spirit of competition that the distribution of premiums has aroused, in making improvements on the old fashioned fanning implements. Among these we may mention churning machines, straw cutters, cheese presses, harrow*, ploughs, hay rakes, rollers, fences, gates, threshing machines, self-feeding ra?.:ks ; in fact, the results of this noble spirit ol emulation and competitioa are conspicuous in every thing appertaining to the farmers' and gardeners' pursuits. The honor of instigating and promoting this spirit of improvement does not, however, exclusively attach to State fairs. Long before the establishment of agricultural 3UVIVHV3, CUIIIG ui will ui^uem nnu iimsi intelligent men, devoted themselves to the acquisition of agricultural knowledge, by study and practical erperiment. Of these, the first and greatest was the late lamented Judge Buel, of Albany, a man who has conferred an infinite amount of benefit on die farmers of this State, by freely giving to the world the results of his researches, study, and experience. For many years ho was the editor and proprietor of the Genesee Farmer, and when that paper became incorporated with the Albany Cultivator, he still continued its editor, until the time of his death, ! which happened a few years since. Mr. Buel's worldly circumstances were easy, and he pursued agriculture as a science. He brought his powerful mind to bear on a subject which he thought admitted of being developed to a state then unknown, and commenced by purchasing, at a mere nominal price, a barren farm at Albany. Availing himself of his knowledge of chemistry, J he soon converted this unproductive, piece of ground into a garden of Eden, and made it susceptible of producing the choicest and rarest iruits. At every step he took, he enlarged his stock of knowledge, and freely communicated it to his brethren throughout the State, in the columns ol Ins agricultural journal. We could not well pass over an opportunity of paying a tribute to the memory of this great man, for to his disinterested exertions in elevating the ! farming classes to that proud stand which they now occupy, and in promoting that enquiry after knowledge which characterizes them at the present day, do we owe the increased amount of agricultural produce that is annually raised in the State, and the consequent enhanced value of our territory. Many of our county agricultural societies owe their formation to the laudable spirit of improvement which Mr. Buel aroused, and which has continued to the present day, spreading peace, plenty, and comfort wherever it has advanced. Fot-rikrism and Cant?Folly and I?ant.? Wc perceive that there is a society of men in petticoats, and women in pants, lately banded together in London, with the avowed purpose of working, by their pens, the reformation of the present social system, by means of he publication of a magazine, specially devoted to the preaching of reform doctrines. We are always distrustful of that man who proposes a wholesale and instantaneous change of the social order of things, and to subvert the present system of society for the purpose of erecting in its stead some brainless absurdity, the figure nieni 01 ins own disordered mncy. It lias unlortu- i nately of late, become fashionable for ladies who aspire to a character for literature, to pretend to an appreciation of the abstruse metaphysics of Kant and his theory, and their talk is pregnant with schemes for reforming the age. From loose translations they obtain a smattering of German philosophy, and they forthwith set themselves up as reformers, whereas they appear to all the rest of the world as mere weak copyists of a species of charlatanry which they have not the brains to see through. They have a number of set phrases, which they work up into everything they write about, such as "elevation of the laboring classes," j "social growth," "organization of labor," "emancipation of labor," and other such high sounding catch-phrases. I We can conceive of nothing more impudent tkan this thing of a few noisy men and women setting themselves up to straightway reform the world. We have seen sufficient of the practical workings of the doctrines ot Kant, Fourrier, and others of that ilk, to have any patience with the j empirical pretenders who ape their most extravagant ideas, and do not possess a iithe of their ability. How vain and void of sense must be that man who expects to be able to stem the tide of human opinions by the utterance of a few meaningless, cabalistic phrases. We never could believe that women were designed to be the instructors of mankind. Whenever we see a woman setting tip for a reformer ?and instead of wearing clean, white petticoats and whole stockings, puts on the pants and slip shod shoes?we immediately set her down as havin# lost that nice mental equilibrium which nature has implanted in the female breast, as a guide in the lulfllment of her destiny. Attempts have been made at various periods to promote the growth of goodness, morality, and happiness, by a sort of hot-bed culture, and every such attempt has failed. The carrying out of no single idea will ever ameliorate the condition of mankind As well attempt to cure and eradicate all the "ills that tlesh is heir to," by any of the " universal specifics" of the quack doctors. These ntteinpts are such palpable absurdities, that any man who persists in them after their many failure*, must be eith?r a mailman or something worse. Ancient philosophy busied itself in a rc| search of the abstract sciences, ami in striving to render them of practical utility. Modern philo| sophy goes about like an impudent quack, pre' tending to have a nostrum for the cure of all the ! ills oi humanity. Tlie Pittsburgh Gat fit'of Monday says : ? An endoraeI ment on the way hill of the Krie stme which came in last night states th<tt the steamer Orleans had blown up ! at >"rie killing twenty uenon*. and wounding many other*. The Oattllt of Tuesday states that no further information, either as to the truth or falsity of the report, had been received. Theatricals. 1 Pa??.?Mr. Cellini appeared lait evening in " Hil I Last Lags," " How to ray the Rent," and the " Irish Post" llii acting was as usual excellent in each, and his song* were enthusiastically encored. The house was full, and the audience were kept in excellent spirits throughout. Mr. Collins was called out at the fall of the curtain. and greeted with warm applause. He goes hence to Philadelphia and Baltimore, to fulfil engagements in both cities. Mr and Mrs Kean appear to-morrow evening in Kdward Moore's tragedy of the " Gamester,"?a thrilling and effective piece, and one in which both these eminent actors appear to great advantage. Bowery Theitii ?Mr. Orattan had a house last eve! ning that must have convinced him that sometimes republics are not ungrateful. The evening's performances pasted oil' with great sati>faction to the audience, and the repetition of upplause testified their appreciation of, and delight in, tho merits of the performers. On Monday evening, tho popular young tragic American actress. Miss Julia Dean, will make her first appearance in Sheridan Kiowle?' play ot " The Hunchback.'' The Misses Vallee will also appear in favorite dances. The evening will conclude with the performance of " Paul Pry," in which the whole strength of the stock company will appear. (JaeEKwicH.?The performances at this popular theatre went off with unusual success last evening Mr. lent and attraction in the persons of Mr?. George Jonea, and Mis* Vincent, the celebrated danaeuae. The bill for tomorrow evening consists of the melo-drama of "Joan of Arc," the burletta of the ''Cottage of Content," and the drama of" Robert Macaire," Robert, Mr. H. Stevens, and Bortrand, W H. Chapman. There will doubtless be a crowded house tomorrow evening. Caitli (Jarukm.?This delightful place of amusemcnt and recreation ia patronised as it descrvea, ar.d nightly attracts hundreds of our toil-worn citizens to ita cool promenades. We do not know of a more pleasing place wherein to spend an hourduriog the present sultry and oppressive weather than Castle (>ardeu, and w e can j truly say that wo leuvo it on ail occasions both refresh1 ed and invigoratod. IIowb's Mammoth Circus.?Our Western exchanges speak in high terras of the wonderful equestrianism of Madame Macarte, pupil of the celebrated Kranconi of I'aria. She is turning the heads of ail who witness her giuce umi agility in manuring her steed. The great clown, Dan Rice, deservedly cornea in for a share of praite, as well as the Swisa Brothers, the India Rubber Man. and the other great artists connected with this establishment. We believe the people of Attica will have un up|xjrtunity of witnessing all these preat performers on the Jd of September, fiom which place this circua will proceed to Perry, and reinai n during the 3d Inst., thence to Mount Morris on the -1th, LeRoy the dth, and Rochester on the 7th, Hth, and Oth. No person should fail to visit this great circus. Musical Intelligence. The amateurs of the accordion will no doubt road with pleasure the advertisement of Signor Louis Martini, who will resume his lessons. This gentleman, who has per formed with the greatest success in Kurope, and whose neat and brilliant execution here, in the concerts of Kai>etti and Autognini, we recollect with delight, will not fail to restore to the accordion its due place amongst the most agreeable instruments. Leopold de Meyer had been received with immense success at Hamilton, Canada, and the pa|>ers of that place speak in enthusiastic praise of his performance. The Hamilton (Ca) Jldrertiser endorses our statements made of Mr Templeton'n success on his northern tour, and ascribes to malicious motives the attacks made by Buffalo papers. City Intelligence. California Volunteers? Jonathan D. Stbvknson.? A meeting took place last evening at the Park, composed of about 100 persons, in relation to certain alleged grievances which the present volunteer corps on Governor's Island are suffering at the hands of Col. Stevenson. The meeting was addressed by one or two persons, when resolutions were adopted condemnatory of the course of Colonel Stevenson, after which the meeting separated. \ Presentation ok Bibles to the California Rroi ' ment.?The presentation of Bibles to the California Regiment yesterday in fact, came off, and a numerous body of spectators from our city was present Mr. McVickar, the Chaplain at Governor's Island, after the regiment had formed in hollow square, addressed them in a speech well written, and considering that it was read from tlie paper, well delivered A Bible, German, English or Snanisti. was presented to everv man in tha ?(. ment by the tfoung Alert's Auxiliary Dible ?0. ciety, and a prayer book by the Bishop White Society and others, to every man who desirad it. A separate Bible and prayer book were also pre rented to Col. Stevenson. Lieut. Col. Barton, and Major Hardie The Colonel upon receiving hit gilt addressed the Rev. Mr McVickarin a most eloquent and impressive manner, and we wish that those who pretend so much opposition to him and his measure* had been there to hear it. The United States band was in attendance, and delighted those present with numerous well-performed airs. I Tin Peach Trahe?The steamer Mohegan. Captain Newberry, arrived yesterday, from Delaware City, with thirty-six hundred basket! of peaches, from the celebrated orchards of the Messrs. Keyboldi These peaches sell at 50 cents a basket, anu consequently the cargo was worth $1800 Peaches were never more plenty than now ; the city markets are fiUed with them ; and the railroads and steamboats are loaded down with them? 1 We daily ship thousands of baskets to Boston, and the intermediate cities. It is an extensive trade?equal probably to half a million or a million dollars per aunum, in this city alone. Thk Weather.?Yesterday was a warm day, and tha streets were crowded with busy passengers. The Croton Water ?There is a general cry for the Croton to wash the gutters in the various streets. 8el ilom have the street* been so shamefully neglected ai at present. A few dashes of the Croton would he most desirable. There weie several dashes in Nassau street yesterday. Rkvoh'tiosaky Relic.?Some men digging in Fulton Avenue, Brooklyn, yesterday discovered an army axe, a shoe buckle, a camp fork, and three metal buttons, with the figures '33? upon two of them, and'43'on the other. They aro supposed to have belonged to the army which^was encamped on that ground. Miuitarv.?Two fine companies, tho Independence Guard and Tompkins Blues, parade in company tomorrow. They will procced to La Orange rlace, Bull's Kerrv, for target practice, by the steamboat Krank, from the foot of Canal street,-at 10 o'clock. Military glory load* them Dodworth's band follows. The Indians.?Thejmost attractive visiters we have at present in the city are the Indian women, who make a profitable business by the sale of their shoes, baskets, i &c. They always attract a crowd in going through the city. The Late Cricket Match.?The Canadians left yesterday for homo; and the bets, which were heavy, are in many'instances yet undecided. Dirirr ii.n OO TV. rn?u.l..lJ inquest yesterday, at the foot of 86th street, on the bank of the North river, on the body of an unknown man, apparently a German emigrant, of about 60 years of age.?

J9?The Jithburton Treaty, in re Thomai Kieharition ?This was a proceeding by habeas corpus. The facts are as follow :?Richard'on was secretary or treasurer to n society in London called the Widow-,' and Orphans' Kund Society of the Loudon North District, and i it was alleged that in virtue of his office he had fund* of i the soeiet} in his lmnds amounting to between six Hint seven hundred pounds. In the latter end of July ho ab. iconded, taking the funds with him. enu w nt to Liver pool; he afterwards sent for hii family, anl they all embarked in the ship Henry Clay lor the United States In the mean time a letter was written on the part ot tlie society to a m?n named John Hastings, who resides in 1 this city, and who had been formerly a member of the society, detailing all the facts, and' requesting him to have Richardson arrested on liis lan ling Hastingi, in pursuatice of his instructions, waited on Justice Drinker, und obtained warrant under winch Richardson whs arrested on Thursday last, anil committed for examination. A writ ol habeas corpus w as then issued to bring him before the Chief Justice, under which ho claimed his diecharge. After lookiDg over the papers, the Chief Justice said that it appeared the alleged offence, if committed at all, was committed in a foreign country, and that therefore he had no jurisdiction; and that if the prisoner was at all amenable, it was under the Ashburton treaty, and the parties should apply to the United States Uis riet Attorney. It was then stated that application was made to that officer, but he declined to interfere, flrst because no requisition was made by the British consul, and secondly the crime with which tho prisoner was charged, being simple rmbe/,/.lenient, was not covered by the treaty, the offences provided for by tho treaty . being murder, robbery, arson, forgery, and the uttering J forged peper. The priioner was then discharged. Jeitfjr City InUlll|?ne?. ! Lynch Law.?Considerable excitement I hM pi > WWiJ in tbia city for the last few days, arising out of a qnealianof disputed title to certain property, in which the CiMknon Council and the member* of the Jarsay Assoc is taa-a body, who own a large amount of property in Jersey tjty?have been the litigants, it appears the AWDciatMftv ned, by right of purchase, vanout lots in Jarsey. which they subsequently sold?and which comes tinder th? corporate jurisdiction of the city. The Common Counoft tirtiUe officii leased a certain location to Mr. Stroberforthe use of a bathhouse; and the Associates disputed the right of the city authorities. Some parties took occasion a few days ago to resort to brute force, in order to dispossess and annov the tenant of the Common Council. They chartered a f>oat and had it lorded with the refuse and filth thut are usually taken from th? streets of New York, and had this deposited in | the immediate vicinity of the hath house, which rendered it uuite useless to tne owner for a few days?rs the inhabitants of Jersey, who frequent the baths, could not use it in conseqiMsco of the accumulation of filth that floated on the water. The people who committed this outrage, and who belonged to the vessel also, injured and nearly broke dawn the wooden house in which the owner of the bath attends to his customers?consisting principally of many of the most respectable ladies ol Jereey City. Yesterday a repetition of this gross outrage was expected to have taken place, when tne follow- : ing placard was issued, and drew together a vast concourse of citizcna. and several members of the Board? i who determined to promptly chock the rej>etition of the outrage PUBLIC IV OT 1 C E. The Citizen* of Jersey City, who are oppoied te the unjust pretention* of the Jersey Associates, or of those claiming under them, will meet at the corner of Essex and Hudson (treet*, for the purpose of protecting the RIGHTS OK THE CITV. An attempt will be made to destroy the usefulness of the PUBLIC BATH at that plate, as well a* to obitruct the navigable water* in that vicinity. All law and ordar.loving citizen* are request >d to he on the ground to sustain the City Gover nment, at 11 o'clock A.M.,THIS DAV, August 2i?th, 181# In compliance with thi* call, an excited body of the cit1 izen* attended, and some of the aldermen of the city were also on the apot, having an nltlcient body of military in reserve, determined to uphold their authority and resist

all further attempts to annov their tenant and outrage the public power. A vessel laden with another supply of mud and tilth wa* chartered, and was about to land in the same place, but a notice was duly served on part of the Common Council, which, together with their vigorous efforts to preserve the public jieace, had the desired cltect, a* the boat anchored in the river, and did not proceed towards the Bath House High-handed measure* are at all time* a dangerous mode of testing a legal question. The preservation of public order in a city such as , Jersey, is a m uter of great public interest, and we trust that the law will bo allowed to take its course in preference-to lynching a mere question of title; and that the public peace will not be disturbed by a lepetition of thi* I outiage, no matter who be the author* of it. 1'ollcc Intelligence. Auo. J!>.? Dishonest {Porter?Officer Stewart of the I.ower Police arrested yesterday a porter at Tommanr Hail, by the name ot' John Harvey, on a charge of Scaling from the pantaloons pocket of one of the boarder*, Mr. Isaao Lipman, the sum of 17, $10.5 of which was in gold, and the balance in bank bills, a $100 bill, two $5, bills, and $2 bill.

When these vigilant officers attemptedSto arrest him, he seized an axe, und was in the act of striking Barnes a violent blow over the head, which would undoubtedly have j taken his life had he effected his purpose; but fortunately his arm was seized by Allen, and the rascal was secured and taken to the Station House, and Justice Drinker in 1 the morning locked him up Cor trial. ! .1 Strange Story.?A young woman by the name of Anna Wrenn, of 67 Anthony street, made a very singular charge at the Police Office, yesterday, against a young man by the name of John tlottrell, whom she said induced her to go on board tho ship Osceola, lying at pier No. 9. N. R. on Tuesday night last, representing that he was the captain ot said ship, and when on board, he locked her in the cabin, violated her person, and frequently drew out a pistol, and threatened, if fhe made the least noise, he would take her life. She further states, that he brought a man on board the ship, who, like him, committed an outrage upon her person The accused detained her iu the like manner, until Thursday night lollowing, and then let her go A warrant was issued for his arrest.

Locked ; up. Pugnacious Lawyers.?Mr. Henry V. Vultee made a complaint yesterday against another gentleman of the legal profession, called William H.

Mor.monism.?Bill Smith's Lktter to tub Vohke II Kit alp?I have, since I returned to Nauvoo, for tho first time been apprised of an appointment made by Joseph Smith to James J. Strang. On hearing this I took pains to gather all the evidence that could he adduced, to see if there was any foundation at all for the claims of Mr. Strang. I called to see Sister Emma, to inquire concerning the appointment. Sitter Kmma says that Joseph received a letter from Mr. Strang?Hyrum was'present, and he callin brother J. P. Green. At first Joseph thought all was not right, but Hyrum thought otherwise. They talked over matters awhile, and cume te the conclusion that Joseph would write a letter; so Joseph and Brother Green went out for that purpose. Kmma also relates that her son Joseph saw a woman come into a room in Kar West, Mo , and told him that this church would go to Vorce; the boy was only eijfht years old ; Joseph, his father, was in jail at the time ; the boy remembeis the vision, 4tc. the temple hill home, saw a vision, and hi* mother recollects that when he came home, he put hi* hancli up?n hi* eve* and prayed that the viaion might pass, and he stated that he hoard an it] were music in the heavens, but the notes were low and sad, as though they sounded the requiem of martyred prophots. I 1 remember myself that Joseph mid : "My work is almost done; I feel that 1 shall rule a mighty host, but not in this world ; the wolves are on the *cent," Sic.? Joseph bid his wife and mother farewe'.l, saying, "I am going as a lamb to the slaughter." Thia was his impression. And I farther state that Joseph did not appoint the twelve as his successors, and I was in the la*t council i with him, and had an opportunity of knowing and hear; ing his sentiments in regard to theno things. 1 also heard Joseph my that should the time ever come that Bingham Young and Hoher C. Kimball would lead this church, they wouM lead it to hell This was said I in the hearing of siiter Emma Smith. The whole Smith family of tlio Joseph stock join in sustaining J J. Strang. It is to be romembered that soon after Joseph and Hyrom's death, brother Green died, and he ws* heard by numerous individuals to say that Joseph had appointed I Strang. WILLIAM SMITH. This is to certify that the Smith family do believe in the appointment of J. J. Strang. \Vm. 8>ii th, I'atriarch, Nawct Milliicm, i Lucr Smith, Mather in W.J Siihhiiy, l?rael, ( athariik Salisbury, Arthi'r Millirkm, Sorn*u>iA M'Lcrie. Nauvoo, March 1st, 1S16. Foukd Human Heads?Great Excitement.?

The top stone of the Oirard College U to be placed today. It ii about time. 1 No. IX. Buenos Ayrk-1, May 19, 184fi. For (ome time I have said nothing of the affairs of Montevideo, or the goings of Mes?ri. Ouaeley and Deffandis, there I Of course they have been busying their wise heads and humane hearts, in concocting the great schemes of mediation and pacification which were being carried out by the subordinates in the Parana and other places, and devoting their leisure moments to the consideration of the ways and means of supplying themselves, and those shut up in Montevideo, with fresh provisions. So close was the city besieged that beef has been selling at fifty cents per pound, when an ox, hide and all, could be bought within 20 miles of the city, for $2 or $3, and other fresh provisions in the same ratio. It will be recollected, that early in 1845, Rivera, thechieftool made useofby the French, in stirring up all the present diiliculties here, the one whom they made President, when they expelled Oribe, because he would not join them in their war against Rosas, had been completely routed, and forced to seek refuge in Brazil, where he was de" tained as a sort of prisoner. The detention was to gratily those who had the management of the civil department of the government in the city, and who were anxious to be rid altogether of Rivera. He, however, had a party there, who wr>re constantl/ complaining of his detention. This party was made up of the negroes freed by him, a portion of the French Legion, and a portion of : the merchants who believed they could make money more rapidly by smuggling than by regular trade. Rivera is fond ot lun, a great spendthrift, and addicted to high gambling. It has been i said that he would receive five hundred or a thousand dollars as a douceur in the evenin?, and loose it at play before morning. His friends bej came so clamorous for his return, that the government (1 have never been able to learn the basis of their right to rule,) then supported by the mediators, appointed him Charge d'AtTairs to ' x aro-Kuuy. uojmi" mm ue wowu gu inert; uireut l'om Rio iiy land, and that his party would be satisfied. So soon as lie received his appointment, he told thti authorities of Brazil that it was necessary for him to go to Montevideo to get instructions, and to confer with the English and French ministers. This was no part of the plan of the powers at Montevideo, but Brazil consented, and Rivera arrived sometime in March, in the harbor of Montevideo in a Spanish vessel. ,.So soon as it was known, by the signals, that he was aboard, an English armed boat boarded the Spanish vessel, anutook Rivera to the Vernon, an English vessel of war ; here he was visited by the Captain of the port, who informed him by a decree of the government, sanctioned by the mediators, he was forbidden to land, under penalty of outlawry. The Spanish minister remonstrated, and complained oi the indignity to his (lag; the English acknowledged their error, took him back to tne Spanish merchant vessel, and from thence he was taken to a Spanish frigate, where his wife and several friends were permitted to visit h^n. Of course, these proceedings excited his friends almost to an open outbreak. The authorities became -alarmed, and made Rivera the offer ol sending him Charge to Spain, with a salary of $5,000, first year to be paid in advance, and the subsequent payments to be well secured?this offer he indignantly refused. His friends became so enraged that they refused longer service in the lines, killed one of their officers, and paraded the streets shouting, "Viva Rivera. The so called government hid themselves in the houses of the mediating ministers. The number ol the Riveri tas increased each moment ; they assembled in the Plaza or public square ; and here the Frcnch Admiral Lain? undertook to subdue the storm, He harangued the revolters with ihuch eloquence?told them if they h:ui grievinces to represent, or favors to ask, they would be heard by tne ministers, and, if possible, their requests granted ; but he told them that under no circumstances should Rivera be permitted tn Innd nnr! fhftt if th?>v fliH nnf rpfnrn tr* t)it?ir duty and cease thrir revolts, the mediators would withdraw with all their forces and leave them to their fate. The revolters, so far from being subdued by the admiral's eloquence, continued tiring random shots through the streets, and finallymade an a't ?ck on tne captain of the port, who had carr.ed the first message to Rivera He wasin his office with one or two subalterns and a guard of fifteen or twenty men. He took position in the Azotea and defended himself with much brave very, but was finally overcome and he and all with him were either shot or had their throats cut, and their bodies thrown into the street. The office was demolished and the books and papers carried off and burned or destroyed; many were killed in other parts of the city, and the prison opened, and those liberated who had been shut up in the commencement, as the leaders of this revolt. These scenes were enacted in open day, on the three first days of April, in full view of the j " peace-making" ministers, admirals, and land and naval forces then in Montevideo, but they raised not a finger to prevent them. True, they manned the lines deserted by the revolters, with English and French soldiers, to prevent the entrance of Oribe ; and stationed a large number of boats, full of armed marines from the vessels, near the shore, to be in readiness in case of any atack upon English or French property, or the public buildings belonging to the loan and stock jobbing company, lor whom they were fighting. They were there, as they said, not to take part with one side or the other. Oh, no ! They were there to secure the " independence of the Oriental Republic, to establish peace, and stop the effusion of human blood." And what better means could they adopt, than exciting the people to cut each others' throats, by refusing to permit Rivera to land 1 The sooner the whole race of natives is extinguished, the sooner blood will cease to llow; the sooner those who have bought the pub lie buildings, revenues, lands, and right of navigation, will have peaceable possession of these tilings under a "stable government" furnished by their legal sovereigns. Of course, the Oriental Republic would then be very independent. The great respect entertained by the mediating ministers and officers, for the laws of nations, and the rights of independent states, so clearly shown by their whole conduct in the affairs of La Plata, prevented them from interfering in these internal difficulties. Their humanity and horror of blood and civil wars, were only prevented from blazing forth by their fixed determination," not to interfere with their neighbors' rights or their neighbors' quarrels. Certain it is, they were quiet spectators of these horrid scenes, although they were masters of the city. The result of the outbreak was that Rivera landed in the night without opposition, and next day was proclaimed and recognized as commander-in-chief of the Montevidean forces. Of his career, and the use made of him by the . mediators, 1 will speak in my next. Yours, &2. tec. A C'tizk* of the United States. Utica, Aug 26,1846. 7Tip City of Utira?The I'arif?Music?Santa Ann/i. A-c. A continuous stream of travellers, east and west, is passing through?packet boats and railroad cars are all occupied. We have here a fine interior city, doing considerable in the way of transportation, and not a little in the way of manufactures. A large woollen factory is in the progress of erection by a company belonging to the town, capital, 8150,000. The buildings were commenced last spring, when there was no ap. prehension that the tariff of 1842 would be dis' turbed before the next administration, in any event. The company have consequently been somewhat taken aback by the sweeping schedules of Gen. McKay's new system; but not' withstanding the workmen are progressing with the buildings, and the company are fully resolved " to try" even against the long odds of the tariff of 1846, their skill and capital against the British There is a presentiment, too, among | these people, that there will be an early modification of the late act, a sort of compromise on the part of the south; and the idea even more generally prevails of the probability of u called session bclore December. Of caurse, no reason is urged, but it is thought that our affairs with Mexico will bring about the nece??ity for a special convocation. From our own more immediate in. ! formation we can anticipate no probable neces, sity for a special session, even in the event of the re-election of Santa Anna, and propositions for peace, which may require the earliest consideration by the Senate. An armistice for several months, with the express pledge in a definitive i and otiicial and satisfa?tory overture from Mexico, in tlie interregnum, will be all-sufficient. But from the necessarily tardy movements of the supI plies and baggage of the army, and the cautious I retreat and incertitude of the Mexicans, a long and uncertain and expensive war is feared, and ti?, i.wCiMcnoulilt' alternative of a federal asne?n I ment of every man's property in the land. With j this state of doubt and anxiety in the interior, all information from Washington foreshadowing the action of the Government in reference to Mex. ioan atfairs, the tariff, &c., is a matter of the highest importance; and in this view the full and omprebensive metropolitan correspondence of I the Pftui York Herald, add* largely to the intrin* | (tic value of the paper.

Numerous applications have been made bj Jewish families to bo admitted as settlers, and the socioty has determined on taking advantage of the offer of the King of Prussia to make over to them certain domain* of the ' state in Silesia, at a moderate price.
