An ad* dreaa wee delivered by Edward Everett. w ro r YORK. SATURDAY Mt Threatened Invasion of Central America. [ Frcm the London New*, of Oct. 3 ] It is wprthy of remark that as often as French and Spanish sovereigns, or French and Spanish governments lay thair heads together for an alliance, they carry their views beyond Spain itself. But it is natural that the Krench should seek to conceal their object of merely absorbing Spain; and it thus becomes their policy to point out to the Spaniards some glorious fee' or adventure which is to redeem tho ancient glory of the country, and open splendid or lucrative prospects to its military chiefs. As Mr. Canning observed, the greed of I.ouis XIV. was not merely for Spain, but for Spain the mistress ol the inuies; ana f rencn counsel naa never been wanting in these latter day*, to urge her to re-seize tome portion of her ancient sovereignty in the new world. Mexico was long the favorite land for their Chateaux en Etpagnt But the "stare and stripes' have become too predominant there; and the object of Franco-Spanish dreams has transferred itself to the Knot of South American republics which extend from the Spanish main over the Andes to the Pacific. There ia, of course, a South American hero; the projector of the scheme; and one who has successfully Instilled it into the ears and hopes of Maria Christina and her French ally. Let us introduce our readers to this personage. The heio of thu Equator for many years was General Flores, a Venezulean by birth,?bold, brave, and of fascinating manners and exterior. He first rose to power in the Equator as a patriot general, and even ruled in that character lor a time ; until, seeking to prolong his power beyond republican tolerance, he was resisted, and compelled to abdicate in 1844. He withdrew to Europe ; meditating, oi course, schemes for a restoration. Ultimately, repairing to Madrid, he succeeded in making himself agreeable to tho queen-mother ; so much so, that he has since lived at the Madrid court more as the accredited minister lrom a friendly power, than us an exiled stranger. We will now state the project of which General Flores aims to be the hero, it has hitherto escaped our contemporaries ; and for the most part, in truth, eluded publicity. Vet it has an interest which may contest with : even the Montponsier plot ; Its objects, prospectively, are largo ; and it spreads itself through other channels | than that in which it directly runs, with a threatening I and dangerous aspect. It may be, as yet, but a small cloud ; a speck in the sky of the northern hemisphere ; but, for the southern, it portend* a coming and widely extended storm. In a word, the chief ruung power of the Peninsula castsa lunging look to those cideranl possessions which were first the glory and thon the perdition ot Spain. That her ex-coloniea are irretrievably loct to her, is a settled fact, consigned already to the page of history ; but somehow or other, this fact has never yet been properly accepted in tht councils of Madrid. Its light has not yet fully penetrated into the chambers of the Kscuiial. Tho submission to the loss, we fancy, has been as yet with a mental reservation ; and Spain, though compelled to defer, kaq never lost the crusade is about to ba undertaken against them, in this present year of grace and civilization? 1S40 JUThe scheme of Flores is, brioMy, nothing lasa than the conquest of the three Venezuelan republics and Peru, to be erected into a sovereignty for some Spanish or Franco-Hispaniol prince. Flores lias even battered Christina, that one of her sons by the Duke of IUanzares might occupy that lofty station. But whatever be the lure held out to her, certain it is, that all the resources of the Spanish government and court are at this momont placed, for the purposes we havo indicated, at the disposal of Flores. The general is commissioned and empowered to raise a Spanish lorce, and may draft from the Spanish army such expericncctbolflcers and soldiers, as he can induce to adopt his cause. Spanish arsenals uud equipment stores are also open to him. He has a camp at Aspeitia, a small town near the coast of Biscay, (or the organization of his force, and for the mustor of ttie military and naval auxiliaries which are to be supplied by Spain. In the raising of these forcea and the preparation for his enterprise, General Flores is said to be aided by his friend, Ueneial Santa Cruz, ex-President of Bolivia, and a forced political exile like himself, who has betaken himself from Bordeaux to Madrid, it is further rumored that the services of an amiable but subtle diplomatist, Don Jose Joaquin de Mora, the intimate friend of both Fleresand Santa Cruz, have been called into requisition. Mr. Mora is a distinguished scholar and eloquent writer; and his accomplishments in these respects are enhanced by his wit and humor He was some years sgo appointed consul gsneral in London by Santa Cruz, when he formed his unfortunate and short, lived confederation of Peru and Bolivia. It was, therefore, imagined, not unnaturally, at Madrid, that such a person, as M. Mora weuld be well received at our foreign oftlcc, and, under this supposition, it was believed he might be able to deprecate effectually, any iuteiference on the part of our government, with the proposed "harmless" crusade of General Flores. But a more active agvnt is Colonel Wright, formerly Consul-general in London for the state of tuo F.quador; but who, when Flores was expelled, followed the for tunes of tun patron. This gentleman is said to have been recruiting for some time-in Ireland; and to have taken successful measures for the collecting and equipping of a very respectable force, for which three steamers ait now Ireightod in London, with orders to take on board the Irish troops, or emigrants, as they are ceiled, in uike part of the soutn-wesfof Ireland. We cosild add to these a great number of facts, all proving the existence and activity of this notable scheme for invading and essaying to conquer peaceful republics, in order to gratify the private vengeance of individuals in the first instance, and in the next to pamper the fatuitous umbitionjof the 8panish court, flattered by the councils of Fiance. But the representatives of the South American Republics in this county are fully aware ol the enterprise; and have addressed fitting remonstrances to the court of Madrid. In England, too, they aro prepared to take whatever steps the law may allow them, cud their own vigilance suggest. Our object in calling present attention to the facts is chiefly to warn too credulous people, both iu England and Ireland, of the extreme folly and Quixotism ol the whole undertaking, as well as of its true nature, in case inducements (which we do not doubt) have been held out to volunteers among our countrymen, not accordan with the truth. General Flores, with the aid of ail the gold ol Christina, has as much chuuce of conquering a province of South America, as he has of annexing u district of the moon. Yet the attempt cannot bat be attended with infimto destruction, misery and bloodshed. Success in any such effort as the setting up a prince of the existing Uispauo Fiench alliance to reign over any por tion of Soutn America, would be utterly detrimental at ouce to the came of freedom and to the interests of free trade. But the certainty ot failure, (for every power iu both Ameiicas would tise to defeat it) docs but render the endeavor morecriminal to us, as it would involve a destruction ol hundreds of our ignorant and conlidlug I riah lclio w .subjects. Fatal IIrcco.ntrk.?We loam that a fatal street rencontre took place nbout noon on Wedn.-sday last, in Somerville, between Wm. A. Lacy and J. A Wilson, Es<i?.. both young gentlemen of the bar, in which Mr. Wilson was killed from a pistol shot by Mr. Lacy. The cause of this bloody interview, was a publication made in the newspapers by Mr. Wilson, on the Is. of Sept. last, after .Mr. Lacy had departed fcr the Kio Grande, a member of Capt Lenows'a company of Kayette Cavalry, denouncing Mr Lacy as having bean guilty ol crimes tbe most dishonest, infamous and penal; and alleging as his excuse for making said publication, that since the departure of .Mr. Lacy, he bad learned that Mr. L. had circulated reports that ho had boen guilty ol infamous and dishonest acts. On Monday evening Mr. Lacy arrived in this place from his regiment at Lavacca, having resigned his Lieutenancy oi the company so soon as intelligence of the publication of Mr. Wilson reached him; he was immediately, however, almost unanimously re-elected by the company, as an estimate of the light in which they con sldcred the publication of Mr. Wilson? they nearly or all baieir his own intimate acnnainiances. county and townsmen, Dad had known him long and Ultimately. I Lieut. Lacy then obtained a furlough for the purpose of immediately returning home to meet the accusation* ami hii accuser. When be arrived in Soraerville, wo learn, a hostile meeting was generally ex|>ected. And on their getting a sight at one another, both drew their pistols, (revolvers) and exchangej two shots, the first from Mr. Lacy, piercing Mr. YV.'s arm, and the second his vitals; neither of Mr. VV.'s taking effect. Both of the gentlemen, we learn, were highly este -med by their respective friends, and those of Mr L. were overwhelmed with anguish when the publication of Mr. Wilson ap peered, and refused to believe Lieut L guilty of the accusations, so fair and honorable had his reputation grown up among them from ms boyhood.?Mrmphit Eagle. Mr. Lacy was examiued and at once acquitted. Negro Property in this State has become very insecure, by reason of the operationa of the negro stealers. This state ol insecurity is becoming greater every day, by reason of the settlement of Iowa, on our North, with an anti-slavery population, and on account of the more perfect organization and concerted action of the anti-slavery men in Illinois. The temptations and inducements held out to cause slaves to elope are becoming more common, and tbo aid and facilities furnished for the escape of slaves more effectual than formerly. The difficulties, risks, and heavy expenses that attend the recapture of a slave, when ho has once entered Illinois, render an escape almost equal to a total losa These things are getting worse every day, because the number of negro stealers is increasing, and they are working with more system than formerly. Lvery year slave property (becomes sub'ect to greater risks, and of course is less valuable. A committee has been appointed to devise some method of staying this evil, ami of counteracting the enbita of the anti-slavery men. A committee of one hundied are to meet on Monday next, and probably may conceit iome useful measures. We are under the impreasion, that in contemplation of the risks, expenses, and loaaea, that attend the holding of slaves in this State, many persona will dispose of tlieir slaves and send them south, preferrirg to do without them to holding them by a tenure so uncertain. The philanthropy of the slave stealer will thus enhance the misery of > many slaves ?Si.

NOVEMBER 7, c Boston, November S, lu-tti. 1 The Political Jitftct of bfattachment? Movements on Iho Chen Board?The Democratic and ll'hig Partite. The annual election of tliia State will take place on Monday next, the Oth init. To'an impartial observer, | who haa nothing of a personal nature to hope or fear from the result of the contest, the condition of our political field affords a source of great edification; and were it possible for rabid politicians to profit by any thing, even ui?} uugui reurn sememing iroiu mo state to wiucn naa management has reduced both parties. The democracy are headed by Mr. Isaac Oavia, of \ Worcester, a gentleman of respectability, but possessing no particular claim on his party, and who, last year, had the honor of leading that party in the first of its contests, in which, for almost twenty years, it suffered a very i large diminution of strength. Commencing with 18'J8, i and continuing to 1B44, inclusive, the Massachusetts ; democracy had steadily gained in numbers ; and in the last mentioned rear, they gave almost ?>5,000 votes for Mr. Bancroft, then their candidate for Governor. But, in 184.1, a most remarkable change came over that party, and tbey not only lost some 18.000 in the popular vote, but'aeveral of their strongholds were stormed by the whigs; while others were so spiritlessly defended, as to afford the enemy confident hopea of carrying them at the next attempt that circumatancea would allow them to mako. To what are wo to uttributo a result so disastrous to the liberal party I The answer can bo oasily made by auy man acquainted with the political alfairs of this State. It is owing mainly to the worse than had management of" those to whom President I'olk, in tha plenitude of his ignorance and self-sufficiency, conforred places among us, which gave them tho lead of the party. Vou are aware that whoever occupies the influential aud lucrative office of Collector of Boston, is nocessarily tho leader of our democracy. This has resulted, partly irom tue degree ol political importance which the occupation of that office confers, but more from the fact, that for many years past, and until the commencement of the present luckless administration?which is formidable only in inflicting iujury upon its creatures asd supporters?the office nil been filled by eminent inen, who gained nothing from the place, but conferred dignity and power upon it? men,j of whom it is but stating the simple truth so say, that they were statesmen, and would have been leaders under any circumstances. 8uch men were Henshaw, Bancroft end Rantoul, who, in various departments of intellectual excellence, liavo few equals, and, iu my estimation, no superiors. Under the wise action of these eminent mon, the democracy of Massachusetts gained in strength with each succeeding contest; and if they touched the earth repeatedly after grappling with their stout opponents, it was but to gain increased power from the contact, and to rise with renewed and )et greater energies from the conflict. So certain was their gain, to inflexible their course, and so thorough their confidence in the honesty and sagacity of their leaders, that the liveliest hones were entertained by themselves of ultimately triumphing against the most tremendous odds over encountered by any party ; while the democracy of the nation looked on with admiration, and wore encouraged to believe that the intelligence, the high fame, and the great wealth of Massachusetts, would be finally arrayed on the sido of Liberal principles. ~ On two several occasions tho democracy all but carried the State, though it would bo unfajr not to mention the fact, that their c/uati triumph iu '43 was owing mainly to the excitement growing out of the suffrage contest in ' Rhode lslaud, and that their defeat in '43 was principally caused by tho bad treatment experienced by Mr. Dorr at the hands of a democratic "Supreme Executive Magistrate," as Uov. Morton modestly styled himself. Such wes the condition of the Massachusetts democracy,wkon, for their sins, the unhappy election of that most illustrious of the successors of Washington, James K folk, led to the fastening upon their shoulders a burden, compared with which the Old Mau of the Sea, astride those of the j deluded Sinbad, was as the liding of a petted child on the 1 willing back of e loving father. Sinbad's burden has been pronouncodthe greatest bore on record; but that judgment wu uncreu i vturo mr. itiunuu wua piuuiuiea 10 me ? Ol* factorship of Boston, and literally commenced riding the democracy of Massachusetta to suddeu death, making them "carry weight" with a vengeance. 8inhad was *o fortunate ai to drug hit rider with the Juice of the grape, a proceeding that would have led to his expulsion from every temperance society in Bagdad, had it been known to the people of that famoua city. Like many othor clever fellows, the Old Alan was led to ruin by the temptation to be found in the "Bright liquid, from its mountain mother born fresh; The joy ot the time hallowed vine;" and. drinking deeply, had hie brains dashed out, when they were paralyzed br unwonted indulgence?the most perfect case of "justifiable homicide" ever heard of But our old man was not to be thus disposed of; and the most charming invitation* to "como and be killed," had not the slightest effect in bringing about so desirable a consummation?desirable with all, I mean, who wished well to the democracy in these regions. On the contiary, he proceeded, very systematically, to kill the party which had made him all that ,lie was; and if success be the test of merit, a more meritorious individual, in that regard, is not to be found, than Mr. Collector Morton He laid our democracy as low ns Cxsar was laid by ungrateful men, whose power to murder was the work of his own hands. It was a spectacle for democrats to mourn over, though the whigs were so unkind as to be highly pleased on witnessing it. You must not suppose, from what I have said, that I think lightly of Mr. Morton's talents. Fur from it. I believe him to be possessed of superior powers of mind, and quite worthy to succeed to the place so well tilled by the able men whom I have already named, if he could get rid of an ugly habit he has of carrying his personal antipathies into political matters, and i( argument and redaction could convince him that ho is not an absolute incarnation of democracy, to run against which istho unpardonable crime or the politician. But it was precisely hecause he did carry into tbo place to which he was unpointed, a bitter hatred of men who were guiltless of all political error, save that Involved in assisting in his elevation?the greatest of offences to a small mind?that he proved his unfitness to be the leader of a great party,and which bade fair under such leading,to become very weak indeed. He forgets that his individuality should have been merged in nis character as a leading politician, and that he should have known neither love nor hatred as a man. liven if he had been injured in the course of his public career, by either bad or thoughtless men, that should have boen no reason forgiving full swing to his bowers of revenge, when occupying a great place,thereby prostituting an ottice created for the general good, to the purposes ul an individual malignity, lie piobably forgot?that is, if he hud ever heard of it?the wise maxim of the astute Cardinal Uranvelle, namely: "that wc must not resent every thing, and that injuries aie like pills, which we ought to swallow without chowing, in order to avoid the taste of the bitter." Kvery principle that should have weighed with a man so highly placed, .and to whose care vast interests, was confided,were disre garde!, and a wholesale proscription of democrats enterad upon. Now, the doctrine that, ' to the victors belong the spoils of the vanquished,'-' is one which .cannot be apiiroved by any decent man, not blinded by partisanship ; but had as it is, it is disinterestedness itself, when compared with that individual proscription which hus been so rite in this Stato for the last year and a half ? Bran had it been ordinsry times, Mr. Morton's spiteful course would not have been otherwise than productive of evil to the democracy ; but tho times have been and are extraordinary, and his conduct was but the placing of the match to the powder, and hence the explosion.? That vaguo longing for something different from what ex ist*;. for something that none of the old parties has either the will or the power to giant?was rapidly extended, when it was teen that the whole machinery of the government of a great nation, and the organization ol a powerful party, were made to retrieve no higher or mote important end than the gratitlcation of the petty hatred of a superannuated politician. w. If the condition of the democracy here is ol a character which excites that pity said to be closely related to contempt, that of the whigs is not calculated to excite emotions much more profound or respectful. The whigs are wrangling with a most edifying vindictiveness. The ostensible cause of this agreeable family quarrel, is the existence of slavery; the real cause is, that a large por tion ol the whig party have come to the conclusion that they have been kept in the hack ground quite long enough, and that the good things of party shall no longer be monopolized by that band of old hunkers who have so long had the ordering of matters in Massachusetts ? The old hunkers scandalously insinuate that the love for the slave so loudly dwelt upon by the new lights, or barnburners, as you would call them in New York, is the veriest piece of humbug that the cravings of an inordinate and ridiculous ambition ever caused its votaries to give utterance to. As to what the abolition whigs think of the old hunkers, I believe it somewhat resembles the opinion which King Christopher, of black and blessed memory, ouce expiesscd of Yankee merchants. His Majesty, on a certain occasion, said to one of his courtiers? whether the liuke ot Maimaiinle, the Baron Molasses, or the Count of Cocunuul, 1 aai not not specially advised? | that if a bag of cotl'ee were placed in the mouth of tbut place from which Lbves witnessed the beatitude of las- i zarus, a Yankee metcbant would speedily enter that pleasant place and seize the article. Of this quarrel I i will only say, that it must be confounded provoking to no small number of the whigs here, to And every thing ' monopolized by a few men^while on the other hand,that , philanthropy which can And objects of distress only at a distance 01 some nunureas 01 nines, la ot an exceedingly i suspicious nature. Like Torry-Kin-the Kiiggott's piety, 1 it would seem to have only great gain in vie <v. If the i young whigism of .Massachuaette aims at the removal of giave, political, and moral evils, it can And work enough at home, without troubling itaelf about the condition of the b ark population of the South But ao it ia, avila that lie under our voiy eyesight are the leaat regarded, and 1 if looked upon at all, it it through a reverted telescope, which no diuiiuiabei thero that they become very small attain indeed, and not worthy the lerioua attention of | those enlightened t.'hriatiana who are alwayi ao ready to i engage iu reforming other people'* errori. '1 hough our whig* are thua cut up, they have one advantage over the democrat*, and a prodigiou* one it i?, making all the difference in the world. Itiithia: the democracy are in power, while the whig* are in oppositiou ; and though it i* comparatively easy to hu*h up i quarrel* for the time in an oppoaition party which i* ' striving to change it* condition, nothing is more difficult Uion to unite a party burthened with the reaponaibilirie* ol government, ?*pecially when the government happen* 1 to he in the hand* of weak and imbecile men, a* it the case just now. Never be lo re waa th* democratic party ao badly aituated a* it now ia. In ita worst time* it ha* commanded tha respect of ita opponent* lor the energy and boldness manifested in carrying out ita designs : whereas, now, through.the placing ol remarkably small man in remarkable great placoa, it excite* more of contempt than any ether feeling ; end iUchiofcatreiteaoe for victory In '4k, must be lound in the feet that the whig* IE R A ,-JL m M JLw JL 3k. 1846. may be led 'into the grievous error of despising thai ' enemies, an error which baa often ruined both partior and armies Should the whigs really fall into tbii error, and the democracy bring torward some of their great men for leaders in that contest .the latter may re-establish their affairs, and once tnore occupy the proud position which they held in the days of Jackson. Of whatever other errors they may be guilty, 1 believe they will never again perpetrate the wild folly of briu^ing forth any of the " small deer" of the party to till high places, under the supposition that they are " bucks ol the tirst head." The more I look at the state of the country, the more am I convinced of the proiundity of the truth promulgated bv the Herald some years since, namely, that every succeeding national contest brings forth an increased number of independent voter*, who give victory to whichever party they finally incline to, and who vote i without reference to ordinary party considerations. They gave victory to the whigs in '40, and to the democrat* in '44; and it in in no email degree owing to their i absence Irom the held, that the whigs owe their recent successes in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maine, and elsewhere. ! This now leature in our great battles, U mainfy attributable to the exertions of independent presses?presses at the heed of which stands your able journal, and which, depending solely upon an enlightened reading public for support, and discussing public affairs in a profound and catholic spirit, spurn the trammels of pn^sanship, and are working out a great reform, of which the next generation will reap tho greatest fruits, though the benefit will ho partially seen and fait in our own Jay . We aie all anxiously looking for the result of your eloction, tho most important of any that lias occurred this year. Both parties here hope much?the whigs relying upon that current of succeee which seems to he bearing them oil to fortune, while the democracy are sanguine that the conservative whig* will never he found guilty of suppoiting a man taunted with antirentism, to say nothing of tho Fourieriem of your neighbor tireeley. 1 seo that tho Daily Time of yesterday, which, in the decadence of the Pott, is now the regularly recognized leading organ of tho democracy in this State, has an ingenious article clearly proving that (Jov.i,Wright will be reelected. The Timet may prove a truo prophet ; but when I call to mind, that tho democratic press of late has calculated, " not wisely, but too well," for its own side, 1 am 'inclined to wait with patience for tho returns, and leave speculations to those impatient mortuls who jump to conclusions, and often break their necks by the operation.

For the defence a written contract, signed by tlia parties, was produced and proved, by which it appeared that the plaintiff undertook to do the work, including the bulk-heads, for one cent per bushel for the cargo. The defendant's counsel contended that plaiutifl' was bound by thin contract, and estimated the cargo at about 30.000 bushels, which amounted to the sum paid. On the other hand, the plaintiff*'a cotinsul contended that the tiue construction of the contract was the number of bushels the vessel would hold, and not the number the cargo might consist of, for, accoiding to their construction. if they only put one hundred bushels on board, the plaintiff would be bound by it. Evidence of the measurement ol the vessels was then given, on the part of tha ptalnti.f, which, according to the estimate of the plaintiff 's witnesses, waa between 40,000 and 60,000 bushels.
