NEW YORK HKBAXD ' . ucr7i-"K. Jttx-**-. - C?a^5: New Voiki Mor.rfftjr, {VoVef*l.*?t fj %4it. - - . | Mini, j The !K?w? by til* ItUaiuci. We give in this day's Herald several additional and high!/ interesting extracts from the foreign papers received at this office by the Britannia. We published yesterday a copious compilation of the news brought by this steamer, but the ex'rauts given to-day, give us a clearer view of the condition of Europe, and, indeed, ol the affairs of the world, than those previously published. The Progress of Spfculatlon?It* Kffert and the Keault. The news from Europe, per the Britannia, at Boston, is of a nature calculared to stimulate ' speculation on this side, in the principal agrio*"J|. tural staples of the eountry. We expect to 'iee an immediate inflation in prices, which W'''a soon followed by a reaction, which wU' ftt|[ heavily uoon speculators. Those who t?;Ke advantage of prices raling a day or two afte- the arrival of every steamer bringing account-, similar to those reKv tKu C*f\ 1 ! ? * ? j ana Britannia, will real- ! iw better profits than those w,ho makt, 9,)ecu. ative shipments to Europe. lb? ?u?5pean advio mm#t have a very favorable influence commercial affairs in this country t^,nerally, and the agricultural classes will j particularly, be directly benefited for * time by the advance in prices and the immense demand in Europe for their products ; but we fear that the result of this movement in brea.-.stufis, will be more ruinous than many anticipate. An impetus will be given to the preduotion of our principal staples, to such an extent that the harvests, another year, pro- j vided the season is at all favorable, will be i,n- > mense, so largely exceeding those of any previous year, that a much greater demand than that now existing will be required to keep prices up to a ! remunerating point. The extensive production of our agricultural staples, this year, has been j caused by the foreign demand and high prices rul- i ing last fall. The defioient harvests of Europe j this year, have, however, created a demand large enough to take all the surplus, and put up prices much higher than anticipated. There is a feature connected with this trade, this j season, of a very favorable character, which did not exist last year, and that is the demanl for our Indian corn. This article is destined to become a very important item of food among the poorer classes of Europe, and the demand for it is, therefore, likely to be permanent, fluctuating from year to year only as the crops of those countries fluctuate in quantity. It will take the place oj other cheap articles of food, which the lower | classes have heretofore depended upon for sub- ' sistence. It has been subjected to many prejudices, and it has been brought into general consumption with the greatest difliculty; but we l.nira f..? - I :? ?ill ? ' Uv .vu-i uuk i nab it w in uiuiiiuieiy uecomc as ; great a favorite with the middle and lower classes j of Enrope as it has ever been with those ol this i country. We almost enjoy the monopoly ol its production, and must therefore enjoy the monopoly of the demand for consumption. Competition in this country in its cultivation will reduce the price, so that it will be the cheapest as well as the healthiest and best species of breadstuff's. Prices on the other side for Indian corn are too much inflated?much more so than can be maintained ; and a portion of the supplies now going forward will, we predict, sell at prices much below those now ruling. The quantity already io the principal markets of Great Britain, and the immense amount the high prices current at the latest dates will cause to be shipped, must ' have a tendency to glut the market and depress 1 prices. Prices for ootton and breadstuffs on this side, are too high for profitable shipment to Great Britain, for the purpose of realising Immediate returns.? 1 Shipments made now at current rates on this side, must be made in anticipation of an advance on the other side; and it therefore becomes necessary to examine the matter closely, far the purpose of determining the probability or possibility of an advance sufficient to warrant the exportation of supplies to the extent anticipated. It would be well for those deeply involved in this iiiuvouiciii, iv iuuiv ujh iu mis panuu last year, ; and trace the course of prices from the beginning to the close of the speculation, which hnd at that time assumed such a flattering appearance, and see if there is no analogy between the one of 1845 and that of 1846 The result of the last speculation in brcadstuffs was ruinous in the extreme, and terminated the commercial existence of several old and wealthy houses. There were many who no doubt made fortunes by the movement, i but it was only those who went into it in the earlier stages; who bought at low prices and sold at high. Those who seized the opportunity to realize upon the turning point, obtained the prizes; < while those who came in at the close of tht- game, | were saddled with the losses. It is so in every speculation, and it is only those who take hold in the eleventh hour that ate ruined. The eleventh hour in this speculation has arrived, and the time has passed for fortunes to be realized out of this turn of the wheel. Hundreds, and perhaps thousands, have reaped a rich harvest out of the starving population ol Europe ; but they had their lights trimmer! in ?r>n?nii?tlioir ?r?rr> ready when prices began to rise, and therefore had the benefit of the improvement pince. Not so with those who have come in recently, since prices have become so much inflated; they operate upon the probability of a further advance, even after prices have already reached points higher than circumstances justify. We look upon those who go into the movement upon the strength of advices, which are now coming to hand by the steamers, as the most reckless, desperate class of speculators; a class having everything to gain and very little to lose, and we look upon their ruin as inevitable. An advance in the pricos far our principal agricultural products, and a legitimate demand from foreign countries, are calculated to add wealth to the country, and improve the condition of all ? moav? o^/cv uiniivc nuviunT in price?, anu a fictitious demand abroad, give an impetus to shipments beyond the wants for consumption, and concentrate supplies in such quantities at certain points, as to derange the trade, und produce a reaction in price? to such an extent, that speculators cannot sustain themselves, and a panic seijses them, spreading dismay and desolation in its course. Look out for breakers. We advise speculators to keep the sounding lead in motion. Vote on thk Constitution.?We have as yet but few returns out of the city, hardly enough to show a result to be relied upon. We give a table below of counties and towns heard from, and also the v?te on negro suffrage, which is, undoubtedly, denied by the expressed will of the people. CowiTiTutiow. N?:o?o furrnAOK. r,? r?.

We have a^isein view The Brit*iania arrived at Boston at 5 o'clock on Saturday. The agents of the New York pros received Vior news in advance of all others; they immediately wenttotlie telegraph office to have ^.e intelligence iorwurded to this city; but to their astonishment the wires beyond Springfield or Hartford were cut! These agents then had the news despatched, as they thought, to Albany, hilt tn nnr n#tnni?ihm?i>t >K? o.^./m>i? .pvvmow.a vviaiucu I it, and endeavored to operate with it in this city and el?ewhere on Saturday noon. After they had used it, we believe it was sent to the pre?s. Now wo are not a little curious to ascertain how the j telegraphic operators managed this. We hope that Dr. Doane, Mr. F. O. J. Smith, j Mr. Marshall, the gentlemen attached to the tel- i egraph office, will examine into this matter. It j is due that some explanation of it be given to the i public. It is too extraordinary to be passed over 1 in silence. It is too extraordinary for the safety of j the wire in all future time. Scarcity of food leads i to bloodshed. If this be true, speculating in food will not protect the telegraph. In Massachusetts there is a penal enactment Hgainst cutting or breaking the wiros of the telegraph. The law is severe, but scarcely sufficiently so. It is as lollowe:? " Any person who shall wilfully and maliciously Injure and destroy the lines of posts. wires or other materials or fixtures employed in or for the construction or i use of the electro magnetic telegraph, erected for use and used in this Commonwealth, and all persons who shall aid and asiist in the same, shall, on conviction, be punished in the manner provided in the .list sect. 1'JtJth j chap of the Revised Statues ?Passed April 6th, 1848. Pkhalty. Imprisonment in the State prison for a term not exceeding five years, or by fine not exceeding $600, and imprl- ; sonment in the county jail for a term not exceeding two ! and a half years. There is now a close watch set on the specula- | tors, and we should not be at all surprised if the | result of their speculations w>,uld bo incarceration ; in the Massachusetts State prison, a fit place ! for those who speculate on the sutferings and miseries of their starving fellow beings. We venture to say that there would be very fow petitions for their pardon. We trust that at the next meeting of our Legislature the most stringent enactments will be passed to suppress all attempts at destroying or injuring the wires of the telegraph. This is a matter that concerns the public in general, and we trust it will be pressed upon the attention ot the legislature. Hon. Geo. Bancroft.?The report ofthearrival of this gentleman in England was premature. He went out in the Great Western, and she had not arrived at Liverpool. Massachusetts Election.?The election is held to-day in Massachusetts for Governor, Lieut. Governor, and State officers and Legislature, and for members of Congress.

Mr. Kean will cuitain the character of Sir Walter Amyot, and Mr*. Kean that of Lady Amyot; Mr*. Hunt a* the page Neville. The evening will conclude with the farce of the " Eton Boy " and we recommend to all who have not yet *een Mr* Hunt ii Fanny to witne** her arch delineation of the character thi* evening. We are informed that the tragedy of "King John," *o long in preparation,will aoon be produced with a degree of iplendor an 1 ac.curxcy for detail, never beiore attempted in this country The great outlay of money on the piece, we th'nk. will he well merited, if the play ha* the run that we think it will. Bowert Theatre?The bill of entertainment presented at thi* theatre thi* evening i* of a very attractive character. The play of the " Stranger," one of the be*t on the itage, i* to be produced, in which Mr*. Pope will sustaia the character of Mr* Haller. Thi* lady hu well uitained her reputation aa a tragic actrei* ol high ability and talent, and we feel Mtitfied that ahe will do juatice j to the part the Mixtions to-night. The Missel Vallee, always greeted with gieat applause, will dance a favorite pat; after which the petite comedy of the " Two Oregoriei," and the nautical drama ef the " Flying Dutchman," will te pertormeil, in both of which Mr. I)? Bar will appear Three Mich s'orling pieces, with such a strong cast, should suffice, we think, to crowd the building. I'alhu'j Ofeba House.?Wp are to have the ballet at last, and it ii with much pleasure we announce the first appearance of Madame August j, this evening, since her return from F.urope. She is too well appieciated here to j need further commendation. Mile. Dimier, her stcondt. has given great satisfaction wherever she has appeared, and the whole corpt de ballet, is probably superior to i any heretofore in the country. The popular ballet of ' "La Giselle" is to be produced this evening Mons. Frederick, as Duke Albert; Mile. Augusta, as I.a Gizelle, and Mile Dernier, as Myrtha. In addition, a musical burletta will be brought oat, in which Chippendale and . Miaa Mary Taylor appear. The convenient site of this theatre?the admirable management, and great attractions, will assuredly cause the building to be crowded, > during me snort period in wmcu li is 10 remain openeu. . Aihimra ? This eveaing tha celebrated improvuatore and butTo vocalist, Mr. Harrison, will make lii? first appearance, an<l Mr. Wyman, the ventriloquist and ma- 1 gician, will exhibit hi<i extraordinary feats. The Italian Vantoccini have also been reengaged, and a series of tableaux vivani will also be produced. The admittance to the whole is but a shilling, and the attractions are certainly of a very high order. Bowiii Circus ?A grand Italian pantomime is to be produced nt this establishment this evening, which will bo something new in America The Italian clown, Carlo, '> with his talented children, will all appear in it, assisted by the whole strength of the company. We notice, too, in the bill ol entertainment, that Ave clowns, together, will compete in the arena for superiority In cracking jokes and creating fun.

Hk*m Hicar ?The third concert of this performer will take place to-morrow evening at the Tabernacle, and the attractions eff sred are of a character which will undoubtedly fill the spaoious building to iU utmost capacl ty. Mr. Hen will, with tho orchestra, perform a grand 1 concerto in three parts ; by request, a beautiful composition of his own, " La Vlolett," and the variation* on the Tonett from " La pre aux Clares," which wera heard with such delight at his previous concert. Tha laat piece in tha programme is the " Overture to Semiramide," arranged for eight grand pianofortes, and to be executed by M. Hen, assisted by fifteen of the best players in the city, among which are the names of Timm, Scharfenburg, Fontana, King, ami W*ollcnhanpt. Madame Pico and Miss Northall will sing two favorite duos ; and the latter lady, a new song entitled " Jeuke " Mr. Ueorge Loder leads the orchestra this evening, though we are inform ed that 8r Kapetti is offered the " baton" for tho next concert,thus showing Mr. Herx's perfect ?aU?faction with the profeseienal character and abilities of Sr. Rapettl ? Mr. Lodar is engaged this evening, because, as we understand, Mr. Hen is desirous of making no partial distinctions between rival musicians of the city. N porting Intelligence.

Hoyt, was found open at 1 o'clock yesterday morning by policemen Van Couit and Allen. The officers, whose vigilance is highly creditable to them, frequently prevent robberies and malicious burning by exaniinisj{ the stores in their difleient districts.

Sent to the station house, thence to livery stables. An owner is wanted. Lyceum Hall This Evening.?Professor llodgers delivers his third locture on human magnetism this evening, in the Lyceum, near Prince street, Broadway. His preceding lectures, of the present course, have been attended by the most respectable and intelligent citizens, with their families, and he has reoeived from them the highest possible personal testimonies of respect and satisfaction, lor the very superior and philosophical manner in which he has treated this truly interesting subject We hare no doubt that his lecture room, this evening, will be a scene of great interest. Lectures on Pathetisit?Le Roy Sunderland seems to have taken our city by surprise or storm, or in some other way. He has delivered two courses of lectures, and announces his third cenrse to-night at the Coliseum, near the Olympic theatre. Those who go early only Kit seats.

This vigilant officer likewise brought down for examina'iontwo prisoners, called W. Westworth alias Oreen, and Wm Murphy, sent for as witnesses before the Grand Jury. Some of the books were brought down likewise for (investigation, which show upon tbeir own record, a deficiency ol some forty or fifty prisoners.? j Howover, this deficiency may in all probability bo explained, and every convict satisfactorily accounted for, upon a lull investigation ; but at present the case looks itlier blue. Aldeiman Benson has the whole matter in hand, and as lie is a very persevering and Intelligent man, no doubt the whole affair will receive a complete overhauling. Detection of fraud? A few days ago we published the supposed loss of a pocket book containing some $*2,400, purporting to have been cut from the coat tail of Hwlomon Neavery, produce dealer, 19 and '20 South Market, while on board the steamboat an his way to this cjty. On his arrival here, he applied to officers Relyea and Lalor of the Independent Police, 48 Centre street, to reoord the lots and to assist him in the recovery of the money.

The creditora consulted with the abore persevering officers, and through their instruc tions, Seavery became alarmed, and acknowledged the tact that, instead of beii.g robbed, he had deposited the money in the handa of his titter in Boston for safe keeping. The money has lino* been paid to the creditors in New York and Boston, entirely through the ingenuity of the above otflcen.

To-d?y we give a longer and a better one. It is to be seen that he < reviews the course of the administration and the recent election in New York, Ohio, Pennsylva{ iiia, &c. [From the Boston Courier, Nov 7 ] Mr Wimi kb then came forward, and laid that he had not anticipated the pleasure of being present on this eccaiion. It wa* hit wish to avoid rather than seek opportunities of addressing largo public bodies. While it was his purpose to discharge as well ss he was able the political duties delegated to him by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, he must hereafter leave t >e discussion of public topics in popalar assemblies ta younger and abler bands. [Someone said, "Where can you And them?"] Mr Chairman, said he, since some of us were assembled here, some six or seven weeks ago, great changes have ' taken place. not only in the whig party, but in the w bole country. There are many persons hare who have heard | ne declare that it was difficult and always would be dif' ficult to place or sustain the whig party on a permanent basis, unUess we could make an impression for good, upon the central States of the United States The States of the East, the South and the West, were some of them sound in their faith. Nevertheless, as long as Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York, were not with us, the difficulty we experience would be great, and roust b? great against i the manifsstation of sound principles Sooner or later, he had always believed that these States would come to the conclusion of aiding whig principles. Thst day has come?the light of that morning has dawned upon us. No longer are Ol'io and New York against us, but they are with us. The great centre of the Union is with us. The great bordei of Atlantic States have come round to our principles, and, let me say, the whole country is in fsvoref our views any! principles. He reminded the meeting that, since the Pre sidential contest, at every election the same policy ha4 developed itself and had been more or loss adrancad. And he asked if any man could remember any Stato that bad sanctioned, or had expressed by its vote any renewev' confidence in the present administration. He then reatf.a communication that he had leceived from New Yerk, djated at five o'clock in the aitemoon, which gave the i\*sult of the election, and stated the majority of the whig ^candidate for Governor at about eleven thousand ; menuov*'' the election of twenty three whig membera of Coagr.ess as certain; and also that seventy members of the Assembly were whigs, the whole number being only one hrsio&red and tweuty-eight Will Massachusetts, said he, respond to this 1 (That it I will, was the n?st*aiise. from ail L*rts of the hall 1 Now, i 1 mid Mr. Webtter, what has produ.*.ed thischange in New ! I York 7 It had been ?aid that it wn' owing to local ques: tions, to tho rent and anti rent fact tone ?to the enemies of Governor Wrifht, lie. But Mr. ^Vebster contended

thut tho cause laid much deeper. It vat no question of rent, or anti-ront In tome counties that question undoubtodly had an ell'ect, but there were-" other cauies for the change, and he imtanced the votei 0n '-0IIPC laland, Oneida, and many others The question before the people was not a local question. TJiere was e\ *idence enough to show that fact. While the Governor \ elected by , some eleven, twelve, or, perhaps, fifteen t housand majority, the wliigs have elected two thirds 01' the whole number of members oi Congress, and in ev try district the vote for those members run far ahead of the vote for Governor. The cause was to bo found in trta opposition to the recent measures of the general administration. Mr. Webster alluded to the unfortunate division in the ranks of the opposition to the present government, by which the whigs are disappointed this year in tbe election of Messrs. Phoenix and Waggaman to Congn*s, t?J member* who never flinched, nor failed in their duty, and for whom he entertained the greatest personal re- . spect and esteem? gentlemen representing a party which professed to have the same ends in view as the whig* ? These divisions had defeated the purposes of all, at.d had J led directly to the election of the democratic oandidates. J He also alluded to the nomination of candidates of a third \ party, in his own district. He said he should go on Mon- i day and deposit his vote in his own town, (Marshfield) | and there he should be met by gentlemen who were misled to vote for a candidate for Congress, who could not, under any present circumstances, be elected. The consequence of their tenacity was that their district is and wiu be unrepresented in Congress. He said what he ! might say to-night "would not beneard by them, and they would not read of it in any papers they might receive, as those papers, bejnj; devoted to one object alone, would not tell them of it. Thin was a lamentable evil,and one not to be overcome by railing nor by reproaches, but by reasoning. He stated that it was as clear as any thing in existence that it was by Oie votes of such men as these, professing the views of thii liberty party, that Mr. Polk was elected President in 1S44?that this liberty party suffered Texas to bo admitted into the Union, and that in so far as they kept aloof fr?!n the whig party, they were responsible for the evila of the present Mexican war. He asked if it was not predicted in Congress and foretold on the housetops in evtkl-y part of tho country, that if Mr. Tolk were elected thare would be a war with Mexico 7 And yet, did not thfcs very third r*rty, this liberty party, do all they could to bring it about 7 To return to the New York oleotion, Mr. Webster contended that what had | brought about the changes there wss a general dissatisfaction with and want of confidence in the general government, under its present administration. The change had beeu wrought by considerate and reflective men, not at individuals, but in masses and in troops, voting for the whig candidates ; they had taken the whig ground as the most effectual mede of showing their disapprobation of the war, and the tariff of 1846, aati had given up their adheaion to third parties, and had become whig* out and out. He thought that this was the proper mode of acting, and that if the opposition to the present administration acted temiierutelv and discreetlv it would hold all it had gained, and acquire new strength.? He alluded to tke sub treasury, an one of the measure* ol the present administration, the benefits of which ar? not yet fully developed, and thought that the evils off the tarifl ot 1840, and of the Mexican war, are at present the most apparent to the public. At the allusion to thff Mexican war, some one in the north gallery cried out? ! "Who voted for it??" As soon as the excitement caused ' by this interrupton subsided, Mr Webster exclaimed, with one of his peculiar smilos, and in a very expressive manner, '-It was not voted lor by anybody. The Pre sident made it?without any vote at all." There was immense cheering for some moments, when he again said, "Are you answered f" Again there was cheering, and as soon aa he could be heard he proceeded to say, that the war was a Presidential wir, got up contrary to the expresa provisions of the constitution. The first that was heard of it was from the assertion of the President that the war existed. Texas had become a part of tho United 8tates, and the boundary that had been claimed up to that time was the river Nueces; all beyond that was actually in possession of Mexico, had never even been claimed by Texas. But the President had, by a great violation of duty, ordered the United States army to push forward beyond it. and in so doing he had commit .ed. what Mr Webster considered as an impeachable oflVnoe. The President had it in his power to o such a thing, but had no right to do it. By the constitution he was authorized to repel invasion, bat he was not authorized to go beyond the territory, and invade another country. This was the deep foundation ot all oppoaition to this war?that it was illegal, a g>eat violaiton of duty. Mr. Webster said that he had very little or no respect for the government of Mexioo. He considered the Mexicans the worst governed people in the world They were the prey to military chieftain*, such as Paredes and : Santa Anna. *ho were net the Presidents of a free peo- < pie. He alluded to the just claim* which the United ! States have against that country, and he *aid that ttiore \ was little doubt that Mexico was wrongly injuring her own character in not allowing and settling those claims, and he would not excurse her. He said that like all the stater that had grown up and had been formed out of the old Spanish monarchical possessions, her government had proved a miserable failure. But nils did not discharge us from our du ly. All we know is that it exists as a separate counts) , contiguous to our own. What, he akked, are we to ?h> with her, when she is conquered? Are we to make one vast territory f Are we to annex her to this country? These are questions which will be put at the neat session of Congress The people of these U. State* ire not in tho habit of calculating, when a right is to be asserted, what will be the expense, but o? an occasion of this kind they will be very apt to ask what the speculati jn will cost. Mr. Webster said that he had been at some, trouble to a*o?rt?in from correct sources tho expense*ol the war. and he read a paper on which wm wriuen a statement ot the losources ana ma expenaiturai of th?i government (or the lait fivo month*, by which it appeared that the expenses were about aixty millions of dollars per year, or double the resource*,without taking into account the outstanding claims. And this immense debt must be met. He asked how?? And ahowed that by the operation of the sub-treasury, a government measure. the treasury will be cramped, and the treasurer will he in a situation of great distress ? The operation of the new law will draw all the specio out ot circulation, and leave nothing for the public use. He said that by the old mode of doing business, allowing the Secretary of the Trcaitury ta draw his monev when he wanted it, there would have been iosa trouble, but now, when the administration i* not remarkably strong in the confidence of the people, the government has clogged itself. He likena<? the government under the sub treasury law, to a farmer with a we** team, attempting to drive up hill, And putting* block before each wheel or his wagon; the mora he whipped up and cried " go," there was no " go" to it; the longer the administration operates under t|tis sub-treasury law, the longer it will strain itself. He alluded again to tha New York election, and s*id that the Mexican war, *nd the tariff of 1940, had. brought about the recent change. He also alluded, thf<n, to the two surprise* which had been sprung upon the peeple of the United States. The first was tha nomination of the heretofore unknown Mr. Polk, at the Baltimore Convention, and tha second was the Mexican v*?r. Tha first wa* carried to consummation by party allegiance, ?n<l the other has not yet concluded. Wna ever expected the latter? Mr. Webster alluded to the declaration that war existed in Mexico, which was made on tha 11th of May last, a* a surprise to him and to everybody. He happened to be absent , from Washington at the time. The bill appropriating j supplies to the army wa* yoted for by *11 but fourteen of j one house, and all but two of the other in Congress, hut it wa* voted for by tke whigs after an expression of their dissent to its preamble, solely on the ground that it was a measure to sustain the army. It was not lor the whigs who voted for it to withhold those supplies hecaase the army had no business there, but it was an act of patriotism to sustain them, and let the blame of the war rest on tho shoulder* of those who creatad it Ha said that ; he had navar heard the patriotism of any whig who voted for the bill called in question In Washing- ! ton, and ha expressed surprise that Mr. Winthrop's , vote should have been stigmatized in this city.? Tha man who says that vote was unpatriotic, ar rays the whole whig party of Massachusetts. The man who charges him with staining his name with blood with that vote, will steep the whole Whig party in blood to-tho chin. Ha spoke of Mr. Winthrop as oue deserving his respect and esteem : there was no man in tho whole whig party of the United States more deservedly honored ; and the censure upon this vote of his, singularly enough, did not manifest itself here until some three or four months after it was given. Ha asked why liberty-loving Vermont did not complain of her representative* if the vote in favor of that bill was so objectionable, and why Connecticut said nothing to her representative, and also why the excellent Amos Abbott of Andover was not censured, if by his vote ha had imbrued his hands in blood 1 Mr. Vinton, of Ohio, too, voted for the bill, and there was do mora honored and respected man in the, whig party In tho .country than m. ? 11 i IIW1I TW | Mf.

Mr. Webster dM not thi?K it quite fair, quite juet, not ouite like Ueiton to denounce him for doing hie duty. Mr. Webster then alluded to the necessity of sustaining and standing by the comtituti'in of the country. It waa true that the annezu'ioh uf Tcxua an I the Mexican war which bad grown . out ol it, weic violations of the apirit ol the conetitution, ' but the annexation w.a brought abont by New-Kngland votea, aud the Southern people, who are by education led to favor the a detaining and the extenaion of the alave power, are not alone to blame If the conatitution has been violated, it ia our duty to reatore it, and not te break it up altogether. We may depend upon it that if the North had been more alive to the conaequencee and had reaiated the annexation of Texae, aa it ahould have done, it would not have been *o violated. It we are alive to our duty, no more alave territory will ever be added to thia country. The constitution^ as made ue what we are; has madejourJ1ng respected on every eea, hae cauaed our manufac tures to flourish. What ahould we have been without it ? Without it, Maaeachuaetta would never have found any other than a Massachusetts market for the product of Massachusetta labor. The severing efthe bond of union is not a mere act of volition. It cannot be done without a violation 01 our oauii, wimoui treason, Dioousnea ana war. To speak ol disunion otherwise, ii nonsense It ii revolution, and those who talk disunion must be prepared to meet a revolution. No whiff can for a moment entertain any such sentiment If we go to the East,or to the West, we are not known as Massachusetts men, but as citizen* of tbe United States. Mr. Webster then alluded to the times of tbe Frcnch revolution, and to the position taken by him who in Kngland at that time was designated as "the pilot who weathered the storm," and to him who inihi* country, the first President, hv tbe admirable adherence to our constitution, conducted us through those troublous times, and not only weathered, but controlled the storm In conclusion, Mr. Webster said that the constitution is the rallying point for all true whigs, now and hereafter. If we are to say, because we suffer from some violations under it, we are to sever it, we should act as wisely, and no moie so, than if we should strike down the sun because the moon sometimes eclipses Its ' light, or a cloud obscures its surface J Thomas 9tk.vk>?on was then railed for, and coming forward, sail that he appeared in obedience to the call ot some indulgent friends, not that he could add any thing to what hod been said. He made a short but most eloquent and effective vpeech, alluiling to the small num- . ber of persons who, calling themsolves whigs, ware disposed to withdraw from the whig party, ana tell us that they want to put the party sn a platform higher thaa it has ever stood before He denounced their attempt to build a castle in the air as mere farce anJ humbug, Bnd said he wanted to see some patriotism mingled in this overflowing cup of humanity. If they are sincere in their professions, why do they not direct their batteries, not against tlia party they profess to belong to, but against that patty, that Northern party which has always been wrong on the matter of which they complain. He thought that the best step they couli take was the first one, to withdraw from the party. The resolutions were then passed, and on motion of Mr. Hayden tbe meeting adjourned to meet on Monday next, at the polls, in the several wards. Cheers were given for Webster and Wicthrop, aud the company dispersed. Conclusive Experiments with Alger's Bombcannon.?The experiments with the new twelve inch cannon, recently cast at Alger's foundry, were resumed at South Boston Point on Wednesday, and continued until yesterday afternoon. In all, it has been fired 93 ti.nes, at different elevations, with various charges, ' and fuses calculated to burn different lengths of time. The main experiment was tried yesterday with perfect success, with the regular service charge. Before th? cannon was cast, Col. Bomfard, relying upon his calculations, based upon the proportions of the piece, predicted that it would carry a quarter of a mile further than any . shot on record. It wa3 loaded andelevaled as follows , 35 lbs. of powder, and a shell of 10*2 lbs., containing 7 lbs. of powder, and fitted with a 36 seconds fuse, and elevated t o 35 degrees, beirgfotir less than the elevation at which it may be fired. The shell fell at a distance of 3X miles, at Squantum, buried itself five feet in a rocky bed, where it e. iploded. tearing out a pit about 1-1 feet in diameter at the t.*Pt nni' throwing out rocks as large as a hogshead. Such a shot taking effect upon a ship must destroy her. The gi*n i* fixed on a wooden carriage, with iron fastenings, aLld eccentric wheels, invented by Major Webber. The reo'il on the firing described was 38 inches. The i greatest?listance of any shot on record is three miles and a quai ter The length of the gun is but 10 feet, the usual length of a long thirty-two pounder. In the ; course of th? afternoon several discharges were made with 8 and 10 * fuses, and several shells were ex- i ploded at the height of about a mile, ipreading their j fragments oveT a great surface in the water below, and I leaving suspended in the air a dense body of smoke, re- ; sembling a balloon, and " nothing else." Several ?en- 1 tlemen were present from the city to witness the firing, which was under the direction of Co]. Bomiord, assisted by Lieut. Itodman, of the ordnance service. During the intervals of firing the Columbian, Lieut. Harwood, of the navy, repeatedly fired a new short 33 pounder, charged with shell, several of which were made to explode in the air, at heights and distances previously calculated. Several ricochet shots were also fired ' with both guns. One object of these experiments is to prove that the medium length cifflion can be so constructed Is to discharge shot or shell with equal preci- | sion and safety ; and hereafter our United States ships ' will be fitted out with thirty-twos of the kind Lieutenant ' Harwood is now experimenting with. The Columbian remains unaffected in every respect by the several tests to which it has been subjected.?Botton Poit, 6th init.
