NEW YORK HERALD. New lark, I'urkfinjr, tfri'lciulicr li, IN4H. Tile Kii^llili mill Freneli Interference In South America. When charges of baseness, of duplicity, of cold, blooded indiifereuce to war and its concomitant horrors, arc preferred against a ^reat nation I Ice Kugiand, or France, that claims to have ? holy horror of bloodshed, such charges should bo based on incontrovertible facts, and no' on mere rumor. Our readers hnve no douitt read with inteiest and attention the Inters of our Buenos Ay re* correspond 'nt in relation to the intervention of" England and France in t' e alfairs of the South American republic* Thi ?e letters embrace the history ot tha blocka le of Buenos After, the forcible opening of the navigation of the river Parana, the mas sacra ofObligado, and the many debasing acts of the combin??l ll-et, and of the military diplomats of France and England. It is nlways an unpleasant task to us to speik of acts disgraceful to other nations, more especially such nations as we are on terms of peace and friendship with. But w? would bo doing injustice to our own convictions ol equity and right, did we fail to reprobato and denounce the undignified and disgraceful line of policy which has been pursued by both England anil France towards the republics of South America. We repeat, we approach th'1* ?u'?j?et with pain, not utup.inglfd with that di? -u^t ?hnt "very honorable mind mui>tfe?-l at the 'ortnou- am) nnprinct* pU d cnitrt"* ihM f <i f tlv n'? -f <> \ ion* of EtlTon h <ee !. i :.i?

Ur-u they,?these humane anil pmce-loving governments could not suffer it. The reason of this interference on the part of England, was that an English stock-jobbing company had obtained fro hi the weak and silly government of one ol these republics, grants of all the public property of the province?and furthermore, a grant of twenty-four squure leagues of the finest land, to be settled by three hundred English farmers, in consideration of loans said to be enormously usurious, made by those English stock-jobbers to the tottering government. These stock-jobbers had likewise procured to bo mortgaged to them, the entire revenue of the custom house for years to come, and the exclusive right to navigate tho TJraguay river with steam, under the English Hag. And because the people would not submit to these extortionate impositions, they were immediately proclaimed " semi-barbarous," " uncivilized," " violators of public faith," and their loader was denounced as a blood thirsty tyrant. The French interference was dictated by a diflerent, but not less unworthy motive. Montevideo has always been looked upon as a sort oi French colony, from the fact that a large portion of its inhabitants are French, and also from the lactthat the Handa Oriental adjoins Rio Grande, a province ot Brazil, to which the Montevidean Republic may ultimately bo annexed, and thus form a colony of considerable importance, to be placed under the care ol the Prince do Joinville, who married a sister of the Emperor of Brazil. This probably being the catus btUi, the combined English and French lleet proclaim the coast of Buenos Ayres under blockade. There is no doubt that the two instruments in this disreputable aflair, Ouacley and Deffaudis, had full and ample authority for all their acts from their respective governments. In November last, the combined fleet proceeded to open the navigation of the river Parana. At Obligado, Rosas had stationed a considerable force to oppose their passage. The battle which took place at this point is still in the recollection of our readers. The Argentines fought bravely for nine hours, and had three hundred ulain, having killed two hundred of the enemy.? They were at length, however, obliged to give way. Now, neither England nor France had any right to the n;ivig,ition of tins river, nud in proof of this, we need only refer to Lord Aberdeen's speech in the House of Lord*, in February last, three months nfer the bnt?|r> of Obligado, in wii ch Lis Lordship .-'<iied, that "he could not prt tend to ext ie uy 4 :aht of navigntion with reapert to 0 . ' both banks of which are wi hin i-e republic. To do so," hi?loid- " would be contrary to constant pm pressed principles." But did hw u?. i i. .4 any of Her Britannic Majesty's Mm. sit i - * press the slightest condemnatiAn nf th * nnnrlur! aC ?V%.? 1 A -n ? ?. ... v?i lino vuovivy ; *iui It I till. We should not be surprised if, on the contrary, tie was rai-rd to a baronetcy. But in the affair o( Obligado, blow* were at least given and received. In the after transaction* of the French and English diplomats their eonduct was still more strange. Corrientes, a province of the Argentine republic, had revolted, and witn Corrien?es the representatives of France and England endeavored to tamper. The revolting province listened to their protestations of friendship, and made a treaty with Paraguay and General Paz, against Rosas. Paz set out as leader of the expedition against the forces of Kosas, under the auspices of the English and French. The vanguard of his army was met and defeated by General Urquira. who took its leader. ?: ?, |>i i?unt*r. x [lis Madanaga was the brother of the governor of Corrientes. The English and French mediators, as they called themselves, when they saw the tide of success turning, approached Urquiza with the oH'er of a bribe?proposed to unite Corrientes and Entre Kios into one iState, and make him governor, provided he would abandon his conntiy's service. Urquiza at first appeared te listen to these disgraceful propositions, for the purpose of entrapping his tempters, and communicated their olfers to the governor of Corrientes. 1 his opened the eyes of ths latter, and Corrientes soon returned to its alIegian<:e"to the Argentine Republic. These arc but a lew of the many instances of base treachery and pertidiousuess that marked the history of the Auglo-Frcnch interference in the atf;urs of South America. An atfiir more utterly I.-.'- 1 ~f l _ , IIC%TV ?vin iicniii ui. /V |*vrlion of the British navy is sent to act as catchpoles, to carry into tiled a contract, disgraceful by reason ol its exorbitant UMirionsnMS, to any but the most dishonen Jew broker. They carry out their instructions, not quietly, and in as dignified a manner as the dishonorable nature of their mission will admit of, but by ruthlessly cutting the throats ol the Argentines, and when they obtain their ends by force, then having recourse to bribery. Any gentleman in the English navy, we are vory sur?, wotfld r?pel, at the peril of Lis life, the imputation of murder or dishonesty. Can that act be justifiable in a certain number, which the world holds'disreputable far an individual to be guilty of! But we doubt if the officers of this expedition lire no much to blame Ttiey acted under outers, uud their duty was to obey without asking questions. The mind oi a nation may become depraved by a long series of unjust wnri, nuchas the English wars of India and China. Wo are not, therefore, so much surprised that the English government should countenance, or that English seamen should bo the instruments of such a disgraceful atfair ns this of the Argentine Republic. But what shall we say of France?of chivalnc high-mind, ed, honorable Frenchmen?of that nation that hat utfcttiiitj vcu n> u?>iii>r uirttruiMifii?ui sum men as French naval officers being parties of tins adair! We can easily account I'or this joining in the light of Obligtulo?it is the nature of a Frenchman to he in a fight whenever ho can. But wo really do wish that we could disbelieve they had any connection with the other proceedings. The baseness of the tiling is 10 utterly inconsistent with French sense of honor, that we felt grieved when we heard of this stigma on the national character. We are glad to hear by recent accounts, that "England and France have abandoned, at least for the present, their schemes in South America. W?, trust that the lesson they have received will teach them greater respect for the rights of nations, and more especially such nations as happen to exist on this western hemisphere. Tiik Great Aukicultuiiai, State Fair.?We understand that preparations, on a magnificent scale, are being made by the patriotic citizens of Auburn, and the executive officers of the State Agricultural Society, for the great State Fair which will take place in that town on the 15th, 16th, and 17th of this month. The ground selectod is a beautiful piece ot green sward, measuring some fourteen acres, which will bo amply large enough to afford room and accommodation lor tho thousands of visitors that will resort to it during the three days the fair will bo open. The same admirable arrangements that were made at the fair last year at Utica, will be made at Auburn, and there will be a large hall, to be called the " Lady's Hail," appropriated exclusively to the reception of the handiwork fabricated by the delicate lingers of the ladies, including every variety ol needlework, spinning, weaving, and knitting, from a tastefully needleworked baby's cap, down to the winter coverlid and the farmers' thick and serviceable socks. There will also be another hall, called " Floral Hall," which in part will be also devoted to the reception ol lady's lloral productions. Agricultural instruments, ploughs, rakes, straw-cutters, sub-soil ploughs, &c. &c , will be exhibited in another large hall, denigned expressly for that purpose. The productions of the dairy will be exhibited in another hall, culled "Dairy Hall," and will also contain improved cheese presses, milk strainers, &c. In all there will be four halls or temples, of large dimensions, within which visiters will be able to see every product of the field and garden, besides the latest invented and most improved implements of husbandry?improved breeds of cattle ?cows, bulls, horses, sheep, pigs, &c., will be placed in pens arranged in a semi-circular shape around the enclosure of the lart;e area. In consequence of the great demand for American farm produce of every kind in England, our agricultural interest hus experienced a great impulse. Commerce and the professions have been relieved of the redundancy of their followers, and hundreds of respectable and intelligent men, whose prospects in the calling they had adopted, were unpromising, have turned their attention to agriculture, and brought their talent aud learning to that honorable and respectable science. As might Lie expected, the addition of talent aud learning thus thrown into the farmers' ranks, have aided much in bringing agriculture to the standard of excellence it has attained within a few years, and in promoting a spirit of competition and enquiry into cause and effect, which has been attended with many good results. The good citizens of Auburn have made ample arrangements for the accommodation of the great rush of visitors to this fair, so that none may dei .1... in r.. fear of not being comfortably provided for during ibe three days it will be held. We understand that the Rensselaer County j Agricultural Society will hold their annual cattle show and fair, at the city of Troy, on Wednesday and Thursday, the 23d and 24th of September instant. ____________ Political Movements.?The whig ward mect? ings took place in all the wards last night, and notwithstanding the intolerable heat of the weather, they were very well attended. We dropped into three or four of them, and were struck with the spirft that appeared to animate those assembled. The locofocos will hold theirs on the twentyfilth of this month, which is nearly one month later than usual. The reason of this delay we do not know, but we have no doubt that it is for the purpose of allowing time to bring about more unanimity in the party than exists at present; although, on that score, their opponents are as badly off as the democrats. Between Fourierism, agrarianism, abolitionism, anti-capiial-punishmentism, bran-breadism, and every other ism, the whigs are sadly out of joint, and will certainly be beaten in the fall elections unless they mend their ways. Poor Tammany is in a pitiable condition, but the rascally locofocos will patch up all their differences before the elections, and carry their nominations, while the whig journals are discussing Fourierism. One thing, however, is certain : the ball is started, and will be kept rolling until New York State has a new Governor. Saratoga.?We have received a communication from a friend stopping at Saratoga, but a resident ol Virginia, in which he states that while he and another gentleman from the Old Dominion were quietly promenading the streets on Wednesday afternoon last, they turned in to the park to listen to the music of a band. Upon arriving at the steps ot a ccrtain hotel, intending to pass through the hall, they were roughly accosted by the propri tor, who ordered them to " cletir out." Not being aware ol having committed any thing wrong, the gentlemen asked the proprietor of the hotel for an explanation of his rudeness, but the only one they received was a repetition of the rude command. Now we must say, that in our opinion tho landtord of the hotel in question was guilty of a breach of good manners in acting as lie did. Saratoga owes her existence and present position to visiters from a distance, and it becomes all its citizens, and particularly the hotel keepers, to be polite, courteous and civil, to all who visit tho village. We hope lor the credit of Saratoga, that we may not be called upon again to notice any thing of the kind. Kxtraordikary 1'iKcr. of Locofoco Hospitality.?The Common Council intend to tender the hospitalities of the city to the Hon. Louis McLafie, uenerai i?aincs, loionei Mcintosh, the olhcer* ol the Dutch vcs?t'ln ol war, now in our harbor, and such officers as arc.now in tlie city, who weie engaged in the late memorable battles of the 8th and Ihh ol May. This originated in the Hoard o( Aldermen. <0111111011 I'lrii. Before JikIjjp Daly. S?pt 7?Franret Conner r?. f.ai ten et ?/?.?Thin r?ii?e wan mimmel tip yMter<l?y ami Riven to ?h? jtiry.

To the complimentary remarks of Mr. K. I tho lion. Mr. McLane made the following charac- | teristic reply. Tho remarks of Mr. McLaue will j ho read with pleasure and satisfaction by all classes. M*. M'Lawk's Rkfi.t. Ma. Chairman and 0?ntlemi:n,?It is so difficult as ' almost to discourage the attempt to tlml adequate words in which to make you My thanks for the sense you entertain of my public services, and for the flattering terms in which you have been pleased to give it expression. Such n compliment, proceeding from such a liody of my countrymen, would be an ample reward for greater merit than I could possibly pretend to-, and 1 will not attempt to ditguise the sincere gratification it has afforded me. Ilighlv as I value it, howevor, it gives me pleasure to acknowledge, that being myselfupon the occasion to which you particularly refer, only an instrument in assisting the purpose ol others, the greater sharo of your approbation is due to those with whom I co-operated. Omitting | for a moment, a more particular reference to the conduct , and disposition of our own Government. 1 roar without 1 impropriety assure you that your reference to tlie distinguished Britiih statesman by whom the negotiation on the part ofthatgovernment was directed, i* fully merited, anil that upon any occasion of congratulation upon the reiult, too much praise cannot be bestowed upon hii manly sense and unanimous determination to promote an amicable settlement of the question. I am free at the mnio time to assure you, gentlemen, that no one can be more sensible of the importance of peace to all interest* of j the country, and especially to those you so worthily represent, than I am. Of course where the honor of the country is involved, no one would stop to count the cost , or estimate the evils of war; but it is a gratifying evidence of the advance of the age in which we live, that the rulers of states are not afraid to acknowledge that the national honor is more apt to be committed by hasty and impracticatle demands, than by wise and timely concessions; for a country, like ours especially,can rarely disturb the peace of the world, without incurring a weighty responsibility to the c.au?e of civilization and human happiness, and, if not hazarding their own stability, without seriously impiiring their moral influence. I certainly could not have been induced to return to political life ns the representative of my country abroad, unless I had been persuaded Uut in the crisis to which you have referred, the views of my own government had been entirely consistent with such settlement of the Oregon question as ought to have secured an honorable peace, and unless I had entertained tht hope that 1 might bo enabled in some degree to cooperate to that end. Kor myself, after our several conventions of 1819, and 18-28, (the lttter of which received my support at a Senator of the t'nited States* for the ioint occunation of the territory, I had alway h regarded the Oregon question at less dependent upon the force of title, than upon the 1 principle! of an equitable partition. It would have been unreasonable to expect, after such acknowledgments of the rights of ioint occupancy, that either party would be permitted wholly to dispossess the other, without Fome regard to interest* which had grown up during their mutual possession. Ifc appeared to me, also, that all the previous acta of our government hal not only been consistent with, but aSrmatory of these views: I and I could see nothing in the national honor that would justify, much lesa demand, a departure from it. Possessing hrfort, in an equal defter m after the treaty with Spain in 1819, all the title which on the ground of discovery. we could assert to the country, drained by the waters of the Columbia, and which if good for any thing, was valid beyond the 52nd parallel of latitude; : our government at no time proposed a more northern boundary than the parallel <\f ft I, and never demanded more than that of 49. Having tome knowledge, from my official position at that lime, of the policy ami objects of the convention of 181S\ I aw quite persuaded that its main design was to lead in a future partition of ths territory to the recognition of our claim to the country, not north, tut south of the forty-ninth parallel, and between thai and the Columbia rivtr. A division of the country upon that principle, with a reasonable regard to rig inn growing up unuer uie joim iwugmgin, bi? a j ? up- ; peared to me to afford a just and practicable basis for an amicable aad honorable adjuitment of the subject Such alio,I was satisfied, were the views of my own government at the time I engaged in my recent mission, und in earnestly and steadily laboring to effect a settlement uj>on that basis, I was but repiesentiug the policy of my own government, and faithfully promoting the intentions and wishes of the President. It must be very rare, if, in complicated differences between great nations, peaceful relations can be preserved without tome modification of extreme pretensions; and j ut>on the present occasion, from the length of time for which the question had been depending, together with the often repeated propositions on both sides, the two governments could not have been reasonably expected to come to an amicable arrangement without some mutual concession of their former demands. If, on our side, j by dividing on the 49th parallel and the Straits of Fiica, we yielded the Southern cap of V?ncouver'? Island, Great Britain surrendered her previous claim to the navigation and unoccupied territory between the 49th parallel and the Columbia river. At the same time we have effected a material modification of our former offer of the surrender of the perpetual navigation of the Columbia river to British trade and British subjects generally. Although from deference to the views anA ' opinions of other*, which it irat tin leis my tpish than my j duty to retpect, I earnestly endeavored to effect a settlement u/ion the hasis of allowing the navigation of the rittr I to the general trade for a period of twenty years, when that, from causes to which I need not note particularly rt! fir, proved to he imprartirahle, in nevertheless suggesting and urging that it should he restricted to the Hudson's Bay Company, I thought I was effecting an object even less ohjsctionahle. It seems to me that in the present state of commerce, it is not only the intercit, but tho practice of nations, independent of some inveterate notions of colonial policy already yielding to more enlightened views, to allow the greatest freedom of rivers ana ports to the trade of the world; and it may tie observed, that until the United States and Great Rritain shall determine to abandon the i reciprocity secured by thoir existing commercial convention, the recent Oregon treaty conlers fewer privilegoa of navlgition than may be claimed and enjoyed under the commercial convention. I felt confident, moreover, that long before the two governments would desire to alter their existing commercial freedom, if, indeed, they should ever desire to do so during the continuance of peace, the Hudson's Bay Company would cease to have any occasion or motive to navigate such a river as the ; Columbia is known to be It would not be easy to imagine any use they could make of it during a state ol peace, inconsistent with the commerce and interests of our own citizens. Universal satisfaction at the adjustment of a difficulty so complicated and inveterate was acarcely to be expee ted. and yet it is o source of satisfaction to know that its general acceptableness to the country at large afford a sure guarantee of the continuance of our future peace. The tone and temper with which the negotiation was conducted in their several departments by both governments, have been creditable to their wisdom and moderation, and have already served to elevate our own in the opinion 01 otner nations. 1 sincerely believe that these effort* cannot be too highly appreciate.]; ami if any portion of our follow citizens in any section of the country ihould feel that they have not obtained all the territory or advantages they had expected to acquire, it may he hoped they will ncvertheless be satisfied that the national honor, so fur from suffering,he* really been elevated by the remit,and that in preserving the blessings of peace, and keeping our country steadily in a career of glorious prosperity, tliey will be amply compensated for any disappointment they may have expei ienced.and they gain fur more than an equivalent for any douhtlui advantage only to he sought through thn instrumentality of war. Having now effaced, upon honorable term*, the last cause that threatened the peace of two people of kindred origin, an I associated by commercial legations more extensive an.I important th^n exist between any other two nations of the earth, may we not now hojie to begin a neu career of intema'ional intercourse, aad. by the uninterrupted pursuit of commerce and the arts, extend ana cement our relation*. It ought to be con-idered a* fortunate that these result* have happened at a moment when, by the wisdom and courage of Britisli statesmen, a new an I important step has been taken in the enlargement of commerce, by which the trade of different nations must be widely extended, and the motives of harmonious relations indefinitely multiplied A< between the United States ami (treat Britain especially the cause* uhich ought naturally to associate the two people uptin an honoralde basis, and contribute to their mutual piospcrity, may now have lair play, and our competitions in lutuie be confined to a generous livalry in ?ll that can advance the happiness of the people ol both countries, and of mniikin.l at large. 1 would do injustice to the occasion, if I >hould omit to *t ;te it ni my opinion, that in the oountrr and among the people 1 have juit left, the*# expect#.ions begin to be 4 generally entertained , and that the i?tti?ment of th* Oregon question wflrtaoon com* to bo unlreraally regarded as the koelltfcthose inveterate jeolouaiea and foud* which, it may bat^prehended. have no loon exerted mwchuvou* iiifliniMfc mi the people, if sot upon the counsel* of both countriM}1 may say, with certaiav, al*o, that u hatever mar be thought of the rqsult by eo?e respectable portion* of our conntry men, the term? * hat < ultimately obtained, oo le?* than the vindication of Mr righta, and the ultimate approval of an honorable cMMsmuu hare added another retutation to the charge of nndbe ambition, and to the imputation upon our uational fcHh and stability not unfrequontly made in aome quarter* of Kurope. It these aJ vantages be properly appreciated, the time is not remote when all will be ready to acknowledge and rejoice in the result. The occasion may not ba inapt to bear testimony to the sense universally entartakied abroad of the enterprise and punctuality of the commercial classes of the U S. Hnd to the influence it ha* asarted in sustaining American ere.lit in defiance of cause* which I, too. deeply ileplore, to attempt at thia time more partjculaJly to allude to. I will add, too, that even these cause* are beginning to feel the influence af a juiter and of a higher hope. an<t that little more map u perseverance m wum ? our local governments in thair exertion* to maintain the public credit, is needed to elevate our country to a proud and enviable rank among the nations of the earth. We learn that the principal merchants ol the city, headed by the Mayor, George Newbold. Jonathan Goodhue, Collector Lawrence, Stephen Whitney, fcc., &c., wailed upon Mr. McLane, and tendered him a public dinner. We have not heard whether or not h? will accept of thin hospitality. Theatricals, Takk Tiicatbc.?Mr.and Mrs. Charlea Kean received a most flattering testimony of the appreciation in which they are held by our citizens lait evening. Notwithstanding the almost intolerable heat of the atmosphere within aud without the wells of old Drury, the house was filled by a large, select and fashionable audience, to witness their unapproachable performances in Richard 3d ? Such a prjof of estimation must hare >>een highly gratifying to these distinguithed artists. We doubt if there lie any other actor, either in this country or anywhere else, who could have drawn such a house on such night The plsy of " Richard ill" went oil in the usual brilliant and effective style, the part of Oloster being played as Mr. Keen only can play it. To-night Mr Kean takes his benefit, on which occasion Mrs Kean will appear as Mrs. Heller, in the " Stranger," Mr. Kean a? the Stranger. After which, the comedy of the " Honey , Moon," Mrs. Kean aa Juliana, and Mr. Kean as the Duke A ran/.a. The bill itself is sufficiently attractive to draw a full house, independent of the strong claims of Mr. ' Kean as an artist No man has ever done so much in this couutry?and we say it rogardlcss ol cavil?for the 1 o.iika inumats nf (ha Hrnma as Mr Kabii' 1 and we have no doubt that the public will, upon thi* occasion, give him strong proof of the high estimation

in which ne i* held as an actor anil as a gentleman. Boivkry.?The performances at thii popular theatro passed off laat evening with great luccen and to the evi- { dent satisfaction of the audience, notwithstanding the in- I ten* heat of the weather. Thi* evening Mil* Dean ap- , peari in two pert*?a* Mr*. Haller, in the " Stranger," | supported by Mr, Neafie,as the Stranger; and ai Juliana, . in the " Honey Mood," Mr. Neafie taking the part of the Duke. Thii 11 a gnat hill, and we have no doubt that it will prove attractive. Both play* are cait to the strength of the company. Tho Mine* vallee dance the " Tai de Nathalie," between tho piece*. Gbkcnwich Thicatrk.?The drama of the " Rent Day" wa* performed last evening to a very reipectable houie, and that, aa well ai the comedy of "Bachelor'* Buttons," and tho dramatic opera of " Guy Mannering," were received by the audienco with frequent burets of applauie. We are glad to lee that Mr. Kreer, by engaging the first talent and good itock performer*. |ha? tucceeded in attaining a position among our citizen* which amble* him pmiperouily to go on. Though he ha* met With many difficulties yet hi* liberal presentation of Mveltiei, well put upon the itage, hare had the effect of making hi* theatre, at last, very popular with a largo body of our citizen*. This evening, " Timour the Tartar," the trial icene in the " Merchant of Venice," I and tho excellent comedy of " Hunting a Turtle," will | be performed. Mr. Kreer, Mr*. Oeorge Jones, Mi** Crauford, and the whole (treDgth of the company, will appear. Casti k Gakdier.?The proprietor* of thii beautiful j and fashionable reiort are, we are glad to percoive, I reaping a full reward for their exertions in doing their utmost to please the public. The dissolving views and Chinese works, exhibited every evening, are loudly appluuded, and seem to delight us well as amuse those parsons whose discrimination directs them to this select and charming spot. These views are decidedly the most splendid exhibition of tho kind wo have ever seen ; and, without wishing to disparage the claims of other places of the kind, wo can say, in all candor, that Castle Garden is the only place in the city where recreation and enjoyment of every kind suited to the hot weather can be obtained. We recommend it as such to our readen, without fear of their being disappointed. Mrs. Mowatt appeared at the BulTalo theatre, on Saturday evening last, in her own play of " Fashion." That beautiful painting, Titian's Venus, visited and admired by the thousands in this city, is now at I'tic*. lHuslcal Intelligence. Instkiimkntal Concert.?This evening the first concert of the Master* Bullock and Cole will be held in the Apollo Rooms, and we earnestly recommend it to the attention of our citizens. They have played before the first musical professors of our city, and all, oven Father Hsinrich himself, have commended their genius in the highest terms. There are but few perfoimcrs living who can excel the youth who performs on the violoncello. He invests that instrument with a melody which we have seldom beard ; and as one watches the impresa of talent and the almost inspired lightning of his eye, l'ear arises lest he may be called away too young. If he lives, we predict that he will be, if not the firat, at least among the first performers of the nineteenth century.

On Saturday evening last, we had the pleasure of hearing the young lady whose name heads this paragraph, and we can assure our readers that this vocalist will at once take a rank among the first musical stars of the coming season. Her voice is a soprano of a very extensive compass, and we have rarely heard such m volume of voice as she possesses, and that voice is even | through its entire scale. She is rather handsome in personal sppeurance, a Jewess, and sings in four languages with equal facility. Her first concert is to take place on Wednesday, 16th inst. Whon Mr. Templeton wai preparing to leavo Kingston for Montreal, a letter was put into his hand, (evidently a long time in the carrier's custody.) signed by half Brockville, requesting one night's concert in that town, but his engagement at Montreal prevented his compliance. Sporting Intelligence. Trottini; Matches otf.r the Ckktrcville Coc*ii? L. I.?There were two matches over the above course, yesterday afternoon, one of which was an excellent trot In fact, it wan considered by those who were there, to have been the very best that has taken place this season. The match we particularly allude to was between Moscow and Dutchess. A third horse was promised to con tend, but he was not forthcoming when wanted. Moscow went tinder the saddle, ridden by T. Hunt, and Dutchess in a sulky, W. Whelan having tier in charge. The oourse was very thinly attended, which was caused by a report in the morning that the unknown herse would not start; in fact, some went so far as to say there was no such an animal as gray gelding Waterman in this vicinity : but probubly the intense heat was the real cause of ; so few attending. The betting was quite lively; and as soon rs the sporting men became reconciled to the disap1 pointm> nt in not having the new horse in the mated, milliners 01 Dell Ol ?II1I Id ^uwt'irunricu ana imacu uiat i Moscow would win ihe race. When the horso waa i In ought out in front of the ttund, there wu a great difference of opinion nt to hit condition, tome believing him t in prime order, while othtra thought him rather loo fat, which ultimately proved to be the case. Dutches* waa ' in fine condition, und appeared very little diatrefaed at the termination of the race. 1st Heat.?At the atart, Outchen took the.lead, but w a< very ?oon come up with and patted by'iYloacow, I who iiol.l the advantago to the half mile, where the maro overtook him, and kept close with him for a hundred j ai ls or to,Motcow unable to leave her or (hake her off; the mare then went in front of him, and came^n ahead an the first mile by a neck, in two minutea forty-two second*. An they patted the stand for the tecond mile, Moacow made some tremendous plunges, and waa toon tide and side with the mare, making it impottible to any which was teally ahead, and in thit way they remained until they patted the three quarter pole. The horte here ai>Peuiot to go a little in fr?lt of the mare, but it waa only tor a moment: for, by a sudden bruih, ahe waa again in front, and led home -JO yarda in advance of Motcow, in j J:4x making the time of the firat heat 6:30. iln Hr.tt -The betting now took a turn entirely round ' i? nr n,itpheiia : and wacera were laid fully at much on hor success as they were in the preceding heit on tlie horse. Kvery person present, at thi* juncI ture, seemed to discover that Mo?cow was altogether too fat, and, in bis pro*ent condition, never should haw been i matched agaiust the mare. Hii rider, too, thinking that probably ho could do better in harness, had him accordingly put before a aulkey, in the vain 1 bo|>e ol regaining hi* loit laureli. At the sturt in tbu heat. Dutches* had the inaide, the horse being in that poaition op the previoua one, and (he took the lead, and maintained it to the quarter; ihe then seemed to increase the space to the half mile pole, where Moscow 1 appeared to rally a little, and closud on her. but she shook ; him ofl, and continued to lead to the judge's stand, which the passed full three lengths ahead of him. The horse broke soon after pasting the stand, but was down at his work again in an instant, ami followed after the mure until they reached the half mile, when the maro broke, and the horse went in front of her over 30 tarda before Whclan could get her back agnio into steady play; but I ai soon as he got her right, ho made a most excellent | bi u?h, caught the horse, fcep' up with him, went inl'ou', and won tiie heat by about half a leng'h in l>M Thi* I w?? certninly a most beautiful and exciting race, one of the fir.art ever witnessed.

The mare, ere she hud gone one hundred varda. broke up; and it was s long betore she got to her work again that all bops of winning the first heat wa? out of the question, and the only chance tor her appeared to be to save her distance, which, however, she could not do; and the horse led home, shutting her out, in 3:44 This ended the sports of the day On Thuradav next, Moscow, Dutchess, Americas, and Feter Smith will contend over the above course, and we may tx|iect a tu'l attendance ; because, it ia underatood that all the above-named horses will positively atart.

City Intelligence. Militabv.?Yesterday morning the Eaiton Kencibles, tome of whoie movements we have previously recordJed, paraded in the Park, and it mutt be acknowledged that their drill would compare with that of tht crack corpa of our city.,Many ofllcers of our city companies wer?[prascnt, and expressed themselves highly pleased with the perfection of their discipline, and with their appearance generally; indeed, sinco they have been among u*, they have conducted themselves as gentlemen, and done credit to the State frem whence they came. In the afternoon thoy left for home, aud were escorted to the Water Witch by the City Uuard, under Captntn McArdle; the conduct of the la'tcr gentleman cannot he too much commended, for although a busy and an unnleasant season of the year, he has taken upou himself and his company, the burden of the reception of our Pennsylvania guests, and has spared no pains to uphold the character of our city for hospitality. In this connection, too, wa might mention CapUlnVVilson. of the Lafayette Kuiileers. who on Saturday evening invited the Kaston Kencibles to the armory of the company, where a most sumptuoua entertainment was prepared. Upon the arrival of the companies at tho boat, Captain McArdle addressed the departing strangers in his usual happy manner, to which Captain Reeder, in the name of the Kuncible*. replied, and his company said " amen," in nine as hearty cneera a* ever resounded among tue trees 01 me ?auerv. i no City Ouard'returned them with "throe time* three," and our friend* were gone, we hope entirely satisfied with their visit. They hare unfortunately had a very warm reception from the weather, but owing to tho care and disciplire preserved l>y Captain Ileeder, they return homo in good health and good spirits. These military visits,when from companies composed of men like the Kaston Kencibles, are favorable to the creation of a good understanding between lister mates, and promotive of that esprit rtu ctrpt, Without which a military body uieleisly exist*. In conclusion, we assure our Easton readers that the credit of their town has been in good hands, and the next time they are represented in Gotham, may it be in as worthy a manner al hy tho Kencibles.

If he gets away from this officer, we will miss our guess. Careless Driving, A respectable lady, by the nnmc of Honora Lynch, was ruu over, possibly accidentally, by Daniel Sweeny, while driving along the Bloomingdale road on Sunday afternoon.

Stcvcn?oir To thk Editors ov ihc Hkkalu Uentlcmen?A writ of Habeas Corpui has been issued directed to Col Jonathan D Steven-ion, aa Colonel of the California Expedition, directing him to bring up the body of John Cook, a soldier. ?& it is claimed in hia regiment, allowed by the Hon. John W. Edmonds, Judgo of the Kirat Circuit, and return .made thereto before hira , and the examination therein has been set down tor Tuesday, to-day, at 11 o'clock, A. M. Aa the public seem to feel much interest in the mattera of thia examination, and aa there appears to be aome miaapprehena>on on the part of the press as to the queationa to be decided upon, the motion to be founded upon the writ in thia cause, we have thought it duo to the presa and the public to communicate the polnta of law and the facta which Judge Edmonda will be called upon to decide in thia case,and which we ahail rely upon for the diacharge of the person brought up on the writ, which are as folIowa : lat. Stevenson's regiment haa been organized by the governor of thia State,and the commissions to the officers iaaued by him profeasedly by the authority of the Act of Congreaa approved May 13th 1846, entitled " An act for the prosecution of the exiating War with the Republic of Mexico," lie , the aectiona of which, we contend, con inr no luco auinomy, wuu iiioreiure ui<j uixauuinuu u void, the commissions of the officer* valueleis, and the soldiers in no manner bound to serve. 3d. We arc prepared to prove that the cemmidiom of a number of the officer* were fraudulently procured from the Governor, aDd none ef them iicued in confor mity with any law ot this mate or of the United state*, and therefore are void, and the toldier* are not bound tc obedience to the individuals holding them. 3d. The enlistment* of the loldier*. to one of wincl Cook subscribed hi* name, are not in conformity with the provisions of the act of Congress a* to the nature ol the service, and ipecify no time of service , and therefore are not binding as a contract. 4th. Cook, as well as theentire force, have been sworn in by a perton not authorised by law to adminiiter such ; oath, and therefore are not bound to service. Sth. Misrepresentation* and falsehood* were used tc procure the enlistment of Cook and many ethers, and the re tore they are not bound by their enlistment* ? These, it will ?e seen, go to impeach the whole organi zation. Dated September 8tb, 1846. TH JEKFCRSON SUTHERLAND, JOSEPH E. PAL MR R, TIMOTHY P. BURGER, of Counael, 1 rherry it, New York.
