X .. . . .1 NEW YORK HERALD. \nv York, HomUy, D*eeuil>?r i4l, IHM, Mr. Bennett's Letters. MR EUROPEAN ARR&R6BXS1IT8. Wo commence publishing, in this day's paper, a series of letters from the Proprietor of the Mtrald, who has been for some months past in Europ?. VV# shall continue them from day to day, till the stock on hand is exhausted, and publish others as fast as tb<*y shall be received. It will be recolleoted that Mr. Bennett left this ountry on th? 16th of June last, for the purpose ofvWiting all the cities of the old world, and or* ganizing a aystwm of correspondence on a scale greater :han has been ever attempted by any other journal in this country. For the purpose ol having it a* perfec' and comprehensive a* the unbounded patrouage bestowed on his literary efforts by the American public would admit oi, he has visited ?very city and town of cousequence on the con* tinent ol Europe, and employed in each, either an agent to increase the circulation of this paper, or a correspondent, in every respect competent to give graphic and faithful narratives of all the commercial, financial and political events, that might come within his knowledge. With tho view, also, of improving, if possible, the mechanical pait of tho iYno York f/cruiti, he has made it a point to visit the principal newspaper establishments in each at these cities and towns. While making the tour of Europe with this object in view, he rrtularlv kunt a dinrv. in whi^h be noted everything of interest that ercurrcd before him, far the purpose ot" making it the ground-s work of a series of letters and articles on European attars, which he intends to publish in the Htrald, in his correspondence from abroad, and in : his articles oti.his return to New Y?rk. According to the intelligence received from him bjr the Cambria, he has now rested for a season from bis travels, and selected Paris for his winter residence, where he will employ his leisure time in corresponding with his paper. (Those acquainted with Mr Bennett's character, and who are aware oi the knowledge he always po?sessed of the politics of the world, cau readily perceive that the s'ock o' information, statistics, and data, that tie has gathered in the course of his tour throughout Europe, will be oi the highest importance to the United States, when published, in connection with his own views and reflections. It is his intention to return to thisj city and resume his editorial labors early in the coming spring, when he will make such changes and add soch new features to this paper, as will make il the leading journal of tke world; lor the progress of America is so rapid, that to be the leading . Journal ot theUnited States, is ta occupy that po- ! Silinn tn th? u/orlrl We shall in the meantime take the liberty of publifhing, for the instruction and amusement oi our lady readers, a series of letters directed to I a lady in this city, by Mrs. Bennett, developing the impressions that she received of society and ; manners, in the course of her tour with Mr. P. i through Gfrmany, Italy, Switzerland, France, &c , he., remarking upon the objects ot interest and curiosity which ste saw, and adding such comments as she thought proper. These letters will be read with interest by every lady who desires to increase her knowledge of Europe, its people, their manners, and,their customs. The first of Mrs. B.'s "random notes from abroad" will be given to-morrow. The Annotl Pictorial Herald. An enormously large edition "of the Annual Pictorial Hi raid having been disposed of, we niian uo unarr me necessity 01 issuing another in the course of a day or two, to fulfil the order* that are crowd in if in upon us from all parts oi the country. At the time we struck off the first edition we considered it amply large enough to answer every demand for it, but now we are obliged to print as many inorc; and we would not be surprised if the circulation reached another, or even ? fourth, edition. It is worth preserving, for it forms the only illustrated history of the Mexican war yet published. Our agents are informed that their orders will be punctually attended to; and such of them as have not already remitted, may do so with the roLiaoae that thev will bo tilled Single copies, in wrappers, ready for mailing, can be had at tfie desk, at sixpence each. W*o arx nil Charitable?Relief for Ireland ? A preliminary meeting was held the other evening at Tammany Hall, the object of which was to make the necessary arrangements to call a public meeting of the people of this city, and adopt such oilier measures as might be deemed expedient for receiving donations and collecting money for the purpose of relieving, in some degree, the sufferings of the people of Ireland. It was attended by many of our most valued and estimable citizens, all of whom si-etned to be am* mated by one mind, and one nstinct. The people of this city have always been ready and willing to come forward and relieve distress, no matter who were the object* of their bounty ; but we mast say, and wo would not do so unless a aense of our duty, as a public journalist, comn.iu.i... .k-. - ... ?>?' ? ,?>u?>? ^Li^uin ib mtskucu iu ujeir I'luracterfor not moving in thi? matter earlier.They knew for months past, that the people of Ireland were r?n the brink of starvation?in fact, they have known that several persons have for montha suffered Lingering torture, and Anally died the worst of all dea:h??that by hunger; and it was not until Saturday evening that any movement was made towards furuuhing relief. We trust, now, that the ball is set in motion, that it will ke kept moving until a handsome contribution shall have been r&i?ed, and expended, under the direction of benevolent committees, in th? purchase of tiour and provisions, for the relief of the downtrodden and sorely afflicted peo of that country. We must not forget that Irishman helped to tiohieve our independence?that Irish blood was freely shed here, as it has been in almost every country in the wodd.iu defence of Liberty,and that Irish blood, like tkai o( our own people, cements the fabrio of American independence. Sons of fh? lulu ?- - r?-L* ? ? ? - w?.?...Uvivu ua noil ? lutiguv iu our revolutionary struggle. Oenernls Sullivan and Tjtn are among the brightest en the muster roll of the immortal Washington; and a large number of Irish troops freely participated in the trials and straggles of the "time that tried men's souls," with their American fellow soldiers. The Pennsylvania line was almost exclusively composed of native Irishmen; they fought for American Independence* while their countrymen at home contributed liberally to the support of tlie oontineatai army In Sparks' life of Washington we see a series of letters and correspondence, between Washington and the ' Yankee" clubs of Londonderry and Belfast, although it was treason to hold communication with the Amerioaa rebels, and death was the 0011 sequence in case of oonvietion. v We And in the same work two letters from Wash -irvgton, . addressed to these Hibernian Yankee oldba, acknowledging the receipt of clothing for the use of the American rebels; a ship load of whieh had bten purchased by the Irish by private subscription, and which reached the A men en forces when they were shivering for want of raiment at Valley Forge. All this they effected without the knowledge of the British government, and with the conviction that il discovered they would be hanged as traitors. Ireland was the parent of Montgomery and of the famous Starke, iv hose memorable nxpreeeion when about to ua* dertakfl a difficult and dangerous servioo against the * Britisher*," is familiar to all our readei*. The famous Moltie Stark* waahia wife. All this assistance wait given by our Irish friend* in the war of the revolution. If necessary, we might state other instances of their devotion to the cause of American independence. We could point to the names of three Irishmen, who, in common with Uio rest of the signers of the Declaration ol Independence, " pledged their lives, their liberty,and their sacred honor," in sustaining the great cause in which they embarked, or perishing in it* failure. There are but few patriots now living who participated in our revolutionary struggle. They almost all gradually receded from our sight, but the tew who still remain among us, can bear witness of the trials and sufferings of their compeers during that memora'le period ol our history. We mi?ht come nearer to,the present day, and j point to the services of Commodore McDonough, i who demolished a British fleet on the lakes, dur- ; ing the war oi 1812?to those of Blakony, who, ; afcer achieving a glorious victory over a foe equal ! in strength, sunk beneath the waves, whilo tow- ! iug his prizd into port; and to those of Jackson, J who, although born on American soil, was al- , most as much an Irishmun as if he first opened j his eyes in that country. It is not necessary, however, lor us to go deeper into the subject. We have given proof sufficient j to show that in the day of need, and in the day of | trial, when the American horizon wdfc overhung with dark and portentous elouds, the Irish, both h*re and at home, oontribnted liberally, by their blood and by their means, towards establishing the iree institutions under which we live and , prosper; and by the influence of which we have risen from a celony of three millions to a nation of twenty. Apart from our duty as a christian people? commanded by the founder of our religion to relieve the distressed, we are bound in common justice to relieve, in the hoar of adveraity, those who relieved and assisted us in the time of our need. In conclusion, wt- trust to have the pleasure of soon recording the benevolent acts of the people of this city in relieving the Irish. They have for hundreds of years been compelled to drink from the chalice of tyranny and monarchical oppres sion. They have resisted all attempts to be denationalised, while their rights have been wrung : from them one by one. They have survived all the tortures that man can inflict, but now the hand of God is upon hem, and i hey are sorely grieved. With our assistance they may survive the blow?without it they perish. Our duty, as a christian people, as a republican people, is clear Will we perform it t Steam Shif Building at Pittsburg?Ieo.n Vessels or Wj*, Jtc. ?We learn from our correspondent at Pittsburg, that the iron steam frigate Alleghany, no? on the stocks at that place, will be ready to launch in February next. She is a beautiful and finely proportioned vessel, moulded | with a view to great strength and speed, 1160 tons 1 burthen, 183 feet entire length, 34 feet beam and 19 feet hold ; her armament will consist of four pivot guns, 68 pounders, and 6 82 pounders. She is to be propelled by Lit. Hunter's side or horizontal wheels, with an engine of 400 horse power; the rigging will be that of a baik. She is entirely i built ol iron, except the main deck and finish of > the cabin. The ward room, steerage and captain's oabin will occupy the after part of the usually | called berth deck, leaving the whole upper or main de?k entirely flush from stem to stern; the . bulwarks, which are of H iron, are so constructed ! that in a moment's notice they can be removed i in order to facilitate the working of ike pivot guas; tlio boilers have been built with the hull. This | vessel, we understand, is the last that will be con' structcd of iron, at all events for the government, i their inefficiency in actual service having been satisfactorily ascertained. For a mail steamer or I surveying vessel she will be unequalled. There is also in the same yard an exceedingly fine steam ; oiitterof860tons,128 feet on deck and J6fuet beam, I to be called the Robert Walker, which will be ; i launched with the Allechany She will be sup-' > plied with the ordinary side paddle wheels,and an ' armament of one pivot gun and four small shift; ers; her rig will resemble a schoonor, but with three masts. She is entirely of iron, and as beautifully a modelled vessel as any now afloat?as I suarp as an adz. Ota3 LtOHTS AND NO LlGHT*.?The Citizens Ol New York, after all, will bear about as much in the way of the imposition of high taxes for small ; comforts as any people in this country. And no ; set ol men ever seemingly learned this paculiari- i | ty of our citizens more thoroughly, or practised i upon it more cleverly, than the companies who , 1 pretend to supply the city with gas light*. The uncertain flickering flame which at times ' laboriously issues from the burners in the lower ( ' districts of the city, is hardly less annoying than the entire extinction 'which occasionally takes place, leaving thousands in a situation as little calculated to make them even tempered, as almost any siiuatian one can well imagine.? ' Some Urge establishments, where a great deal I of light is required, suffer vastly, both in expense and convenience, by the evil, which onght to bo cured, wherever its source may be. The manager of the Park Theatre is subject to a heavy expen lor c amphene, which he is obliged to supply his house witn, on account of the frequent failures of the gas lights. Oar own tax for sperm candles is mora than we are iviUina tn mhmit to Mrt rlma nrnU?Klv I feels the inconvenience of the difficulty of which we complain more seriously than the I publishers of morning newspapers. Good light is as necessary to our compositors, as heat is to the smith. Bnt no'withstanding all the inconvenience to which tho patrons of the gas compnj niet are subjected, th-y have to pay enormously ' dear for their miserable whistle. In Philadelj phia, a constant supply of gas light is afforded at one-third the price per cubie foot which we have to pay. Surely, if the Fhiladelph.a ! company can afford to lumish light at 66 per cent lower than our companies, we ought to have the > certainty of a supply. On the mglit of the arrival of the President's message, tbe lights in our office failed seversU times, and in one^iascanee we were left in total darkness. The only way < f remelying the evil of which we complain, ia to oall a meeting of the gas burners ot New York. Let them be addressed in emphatic language, expreasiva ot the feelings of the impoaed upon; and if thia fail, let an invitation be extended to oapitalista to enter upon tha project ot giving us steady light at a fair pnoa ? : In some shape or other, reform must be had in this matter.

Pah is, Nov. 10, IMS. The mere I see and watch the movements in E^ ope, the more I am satisfied that it ia on the eve of some great and remarkable convulsion. The public mind is almost bursting with new ideas, for which there is no outlet. Every popular impulse is repressed and kept down by bayonet* and cannon. During the last few days a singular outburst has come from the press of london and Pahs, against the northern powers, in oonsequenca of the absorption ot Cracow by Austria. This is a mere affectation of the press?a ridiculous humbug of the peliticians?a much-a-doabout nothing, to ca- ; jole and tickle the people of France and England. The confiscation of Cracow, as it is called, will be a real benefit to that unfortunate territory, for it is a gross mistake te call it a republic?it was nothing but a little contemptible burgher aristocracy, in which the mass of the people, as we understand it in the United Stater, had as little in fiuence as they have in England, France, or Germany. One of the most strange contrasts that I have ; noticed in Europe, is the perversity and malevolence of the London and Paris newspaper press i against the United State*. While they are shed- ; ding hypocritical tears over Craoow, they take very opportunity to slander and malign the only republic in the world. I was the other evening in company witlions of the distinguished men o( this country. He expressed the opinion strongly, that if the republic of North America continued to pursue the same policy hereafter as heretofore, she wauld, in the next century be the most powerful, influential, and extraordinary nation, both by sea and land, that ever yet has appeared 'n the world. It is calculated that in the year 2000, or thereabouts, the United States will oontain a population of 100,000,000?a anro ber equal t* half the people of Europe, but superior to them, inasmuch as they will speak the same language, live under the same institutions, and be actuated by the same impulses. Let the people and government of the United States be true to themselves and the ir institutions, and they may laugh to scorn the slanders ot the whele newspaper press of Europe. I have been studying the condition of the news- | paper press in London, Paris and other capitals, ! and a more corrupt, insolent, enslaved, atr?- ; cious engine of fraud and cupidity never existed in the world. It is purchased and cnrrup'ed by the several governments to a most extraordinary extent, and is in fact a sort of Holy Inquisition over the free thought of Europe. On this subject I have much to say hereafter.

As this lady's engagement at the Bowery Amphitheatre thie week will make her the great magoet of the day; aoma account of her risa and progress in the equestrian art, which we copy from a European paper may not be uninteresting. " Madame Macarte was born in the city of Pariain 1844; her father wai the principal master ef horse to the famous Ducrow ; the elegant symmetry of her figure, and her strikingly beauiiful expression, induced ner father to place her under the charge of the maat adroit teachera in Paria, with a view of bringing her out in the royal ballet. In this elegant accomplishment, although she progressed with groat rapidity, it waa evident it was not her destiny to shine exclusively. After an ordeal of one year, it was discovered that is petite denscues preferred the " pomp, pride and circumstance" of the glorious arena to the scenic routine of the French ballet. Accordingly at the age of five yeara, she was placed under the patronage or Mr. Duorow in London, who easily distinguished in the ambitious child >L. - .I.IA K?isnw.A aA /.a lie* lUl'IC |fI1UI VI gCUJUB WUlkU WUOIHB "V IUII/ UWVOSVpVU >? ahe approached womanhood So enthusiastic and devoted to her task did she become, that do practice, however severe. and no application, however protracted, could ever discourage her in bar favorite pursuit, and aha may be truly raid to have been an accomplished rider irom her infancy. From this period commenced her rapid and almoat superhuman progress in equestrian skill, and th? acquisition ot thoae great qualitiea that distinguish her from all her contemporariea. The riding of Madame Maoarte differ* frem all others either in this country or in Europe, both in Ityle and in execution. Her aehool is excluiively her own, and her various feats are to female equestrians of the present day what those of her great tutor (Ducrow) were to h>s contemporaries?models of art and beauty, grace and refinement, for the imiution of all others. Her eutire act, from the time her beautiful Arabian enterathe circle, is one continuous scene of beautiful pictures, gtaceful pantomime, and energetic action. Her grand chef d'mure ia her inimitable delineation of characters in what ii called the ' Syren's Scarf,' wnich ahe perfoims during rapid circuitjon of her cornier. Neither pain'-er, peet nor sculptor, aver conseived more exquisitely diversified attitudes. To those prodigi?s of agility, vigor andaddress, is united a grace, which constitutes the highest merit in the eyes of all who entertain a proper sense of the genuine principles cf art. fcvarv movement developes some new beauty, and every look imparts fresh interest ia her performance. It is a difficult task to attempt to dffloe Mads .Tie Micarte'j talents She is the inventor of her own performances, which have become the fashionable models ol female equestnanism in London and Paris for several years. One of her isreat qualities i< courage. Nothing appears too difficult for her to accomplish in her proteesiuxi?nothing so troublesome, so aiduous, or so dangeious as to appal her. Madame Mecarte is an actress, and a fiaa ona toj. and ta support this assertion wa refer the reader to her elegant acena from the Venetian Carnival. No damnui* upon the stage, not even Celes;a, could exceed her powerlui expression in thisa**nniption. Her pantomime reminds us ol that celebrated eulogy on the Memes ot old. Their very nois speak?their hands talk ~ their fltimri hare voices. Tha difference between Madime Macarte and all other euucstrijn ladles, la, that har testa or* pleasing and eentiouvu*. We understand all aba doaa and means to imply, and find it all tend to ?w great point. Her riding ia a little melodrama. Unlike all other ladv equestrians we have aeea. her taata. though daring ami diflcult, never inspire a leeltng of dreaJ and horror. Tha perfect confidence with which aha daehe* around the circle, like an mrial b*ln< ? light, animated, and graceful? aunj in alt ane undertake), and with a perfect command of her steed, gravity seems to have no central point with her, and her ^achievement* imaart an ihdeacribkble euthusiaam to her spectator*, seducing and enchanting them by her elegant agility."

There are but few men who have exerted a wider, and , of ita kind, a purer influence, by a straight, undeviating j course, upon the character of our institution*, at home i and abroad, than Jamea Buchanan; and fewer (till hare scaped with lea* of the bitterness of rivalries and the , malignities of political opponents, than the subject of | thia memoir. To make the beat of it, it U a very difficult ; matter to give a lahleaux xiwant of the [living with per- ' fee'ness, yet we will try with our moat honeat intentiona. ! After uaing our energies to get information in regard to j hia earlier life, from that shadow of a biography of him published la?t year in the Dtmoermtie Amm, we came off sadly disappointed. Convening with one who knew him, when at the court of St. Petersburgh, he waa there : a universal favorite with the imperial government, from the strict attention with which he regard*] the etiquette ef royalty, and the keen eye with which he watched over our relations with that power. In the language of ] ur informant, he seemed[to the ''manner bornand with theaame talent tlia; tie tiai to well devoted to tue interI acta ef our Republic at home, did ha mi>ke himaelf wgree- 1 ble to our friend* abroad ; couveriant with tha kuropean i Mhool of diplomacy. did he early fit himself to fill the poet I af Miui<ter toRumia, with honor and advantage to tha : 1 welfare of our land of freedom.

The whole country are in a degree indebted to him for the masterly ability and jndieiou* management with which he terminated that meat war-threatning and diflcult question, that we have ever had with a foreign power. DiAoaltiea have vanished before the intuitive talent wjth whioh they have been managed: and laat, though not leaat, hia famoea consular bill will lay the aeamen under an obligation not eaaily to be repaid, for protecting their righta and regarding their intereita while in the land of itrangar*.

The only oenaola. tion the commercial cla**e* have, is that tha government U in the fame boat with them.

The only thiag that will turn aiide the difficulties to be apprehended from the poiition of our public affairs, is postponement of the specie clause of the InJependent Treasury bill. A total repeal of that provision is not called for; we would by no means advocate sueh a movement, as it is oar km belief, that in peaceable times, when the laws of trade operate i? the natural way, when there is nothing to disturb the ramiloatien* of business, there is nothing so admirably calculated to increase the valne and roduco the volume of the ourreaoy, aad increase the circulation among all classes of the precious metals, as the enforce ment of the specie clause of the Independent Troasn ry act. But when we are at war with a foieigu nation,whom the government is compelled' to contract a large debt/ when the finances of the country have become deranged, and largo amounts oi money are transported from oeo pert of the Union to the other, to meet the demand for funds to cany on hostill a, and entirely independent of the balances of trade or anything else connected with commercial matters, it is not tha time for introducing ox. pcriments into our financial policy, particularly these calculated to restrict the supply of money aad to raise its prioo. The Secretary of the Treasury mast, before many months clapae, issue proposals for a largo loan, at an iatcrect, probably, of not more than six per oent. What probability will there be of this loan being raised, if the naAiAAlttiM t\t (Ka In/4m nart^ant TrattlQrV tAtffOAl in(? operation at the time stipulated? About a* mack chaoeo a* there ii now of making loan at three per cent. It to an impoeaibility. The thing oannot bo aacomplished; and the government will be forced,eventually, to resolad a measure, which, existing circumatancea (how, la abao. lutely necessary. It would be much more creditable if the party in power would at onoe paaa a resolatlon postponing, for an indelnite period, or until the a lose of the war, the enforcement of the specie part of the Treaaary act. All that la now oocoaaary to aoouro aad consolidate oar present prosperity, notwithstanding the extraordinary expenditures of the government - to enaaro an easy atato of the money market?to facilitate the negotiation of any loan which may be required to carry on the tu, aad to give oonfldeace to all claaaea engaged la trade, la the immediate adoption of a resolution authorising the postponement of that portion of the Independent Treasury which la considered, at this time, particalarly objectionable.
