By the arrival of the packet ship Gladiator, from London, we have advices from Europe three days later than those previously received. The news does not amount to much, politically or commercially. It is a long time since the cotton markets in Great Britain have been so inactive as they were ut the latest dates. The corn markets were moderately active, and prices without any material alteration Unless there is some change in the principal markets, the next steamer will not bring any very important news of a commercial character. The political affairs of Europe appear to be as quirt as commercial matters. The Bombardment of Vera Cruz. We learn by the arrival of the ship Oregon at New Orfeans, from Anton Lizardo, which pluce she left on the 20th ult., that three or four hours after that vessel sailed, heavy firing was heard in Vera Cruz, and from the sound, it came from the Americans. There is no doubt that the city waa attacked on that day, and we may expect to hear of some important results from there every hour. Our readers will find the news in another column. It is of deep interest. They will recollect that we informed them some time ago, that the 20th had been appointed for the attack. According to the accounts Vera Cruz is to be a second Saragossa! Newspapers In Mexico?Spread of Republicanism?Novel Mode of Warfare. The subjugation of the Mexicans has assumed a new shape, and will henceforth be prosecuted with weapons of peace, as well as with grape and cannister. This new weapon will be as effectual in conquering a peace as the cannon is? and what is of more importance, its results will not be accompanied with much loss of life. Hitherto the (roveriiinent has conducted tile war singly and alone; but now, our citizens come to its aid in the shape of editors, reporters, imps and devils, armed to the teeth with paper, presses and printing ink. With these materials they will manufacture ammunition. If the Mexicans can maintain their ground in front of the tremendous volleys that will be poured into their ranks, they are better soldiers than we take them to be. Several of these literary batteries are already constructed in different parts of Mexico, and from the success which attends their manmuvres, we are disposed to think that they have made considerable havoc in the enemy's ranks. An American newspaper is to be established at Monterey, (New Leon,) to be called the American Pioneer; one is already established at Matamoras, the American Flag; one at Monterey, in California, the Californian; one at Tampico, called the Sentinel; and we are informed that the original proprietors of the latter have recently sold out, and are about to construct a newspa|>er battery in Vera Cruz. This is the latest example we have of Yankee enterprise. It is decidedly novel for an army to have in its rear a corps of printers to march through the breaches made in the enemy's walls by the cannon balls, and then let tly at them these implements of modern Yuukee warfare. We have great faith in this system, and we are certain that the best results will flow from it. The press of Mexico is tied, hand and foot by the government, und dare not publish an article without its being' submitted to the government censors. We shull see what effect an independent press will have. We shall see whether the impressions produced by the slanders and falsehoods daily uttered by the Mexican authorities, be not soon dispelled, and the people attain correct knowledge of our character, and our object in prosecuting the war. If the papers already established, and those - i? ??i : i a :_u muuui iu ur cBiuuiismu, wcic |?iiuu:u in opaiuan as well as in English, the effect would of course be greater than if printed in English alone. Very few of the Mexican people understand English, and those few belong to the upper crust, who are opposed to peace, and who lead and control the masses. If these papers were printed in Spanish, us well as in English, they would be eagerly read by the great body of the people, or rather by the great body of those who can read, and the happiest results would flow from them. Old Rough and Rkady.?We publish in another column, some despatches of General Zachary Taylor, containing an account of his gallant defence of Fort Harrison in the year 1812, and his more recent achievements in Florida. On the breaking out of the war with Great Britain, Captain Taylor, now called Old Rough and Ready, was left in command of Fort Harrison, which he successfully defended against the attack of a large body of Indians, headed by their Prophet. Every stratagem in savage warfare was used by the Indians to capture the , fort, but without success. Captain Taylor was too rough and too ready for them, and after a conflict of seven hours, compelled the Indians to retire. The gallant behavior of Captain Taylor in the defence of Fort Harrison, was duly appreciated by the government. Very soon after the official accounts reached Washington, he was promoted und made Major by brevet; and his, we believe, was the first brevet commission granted in the I'nited States. From a captain he rose by merit and gallantry higher and higher, and is now in command of an arnty. The plain young Captain Taylor, is now Gen. Zachary Taylor, appropriately styled Old Rough and Ready, the hero of Pnl? Aim n...^ ,i.. i?

AFFAIRS IN PORTUGAL. The Repealers in an Uproar* State of the Markets. Ac. Ac. Ac. The packet ship Gladiator, Capt. Bunting, arrived yesterday from London and Portsmouth, whence she sailed on the 11th ult. Our latest London date is the 10th. The news is interesting only so far as it relates to the markets. There is no political intelligence of any consequence. The 24th ult., was appointed as the day for the observance of a general fast and humiliation throughout Great Britain. The Oriental and Peninsula steam ship Tiber, went ashore near Lisbon, on the 20th of February, and is a total loss. She was\a large iron steamer, and was worth ?150,000. Ireland. The dehrit of the Repeal Association was collected today. (March 8.) in Concilatlon Hall, and a pretty heap It presented. Think of Tom Arklns. the tailor, playing first fiddle ! The rent, however, was up to 418 10s. 6d. Mr Ray read a letter flrom Mr. John O'ConneU on va rioui subjects. ine rouowing 11 an tnrtci * My father Is just on the point of departure for Hasting* to seek change of air; hut for the hurry of leaving town ho whould have addressed tho association upon the present state of our affairs, and would hare bad the pleasure personally to announce that John Augustus O'Neill, will offer himself for Oalway at the next general election; and thus give the honest Repealers tnere a second worthy and true-hearted candidate to support. He will, however, give himself that pleasure this day week." Mr. Tom Arkins spoke to the letter. He " denounced the thimble-rigging government of Lord John Russell" for his general conduct towards Ireland, and more parti1 cularly for his new Poor Law Bill. Tom concluded a ve. hement oration by calling upon Ireland to rise en masse and demand the dismissal of Lord John Russell and his starvation government. He did not carc whether Sir Robert Peel or Lord Oeorge Bentinck would succeed him, for he believed cither was more honest, humane, aud just than Lord John Russell (protracted cheers). Mr. Kitzpatrick followed in a similar boisterous strain. The present government had caused the deaths of mll1 lions of the Irish people by the most heartless neglect? (cheers, and cries of "down with the whigs!") Their 1 great leader had suffered deeply in his health from redaction on the state of the country ; and suppose he had made mistakes?at such?(uproar, and cries of "no, no. never.") Mr. Tom Steelo rose to order?O'Conneli never made a mistake (cries of "yes, yes;" "no. no.") Mr. Kitzpatrick continued?He did not mean to assail ; O'Conneli, but ho felt that in his absence intemperate and injudicious language bad been used, which O'Conneli would not have permitted (uproar). Mr. Clomcnts?This has nothiug to do with the question before the chair. (No, no. yes. yes.) Mr. Kitzpatrick then went on to abuse the government, and Young Ireland into the bargain. " If that party continued to stay away from the hall, the Britisli government would continue to treat Ireland just as it liked. I conclude." said he. "by moving that we call upon every part of Ireland to petition the <4uecn to dismiss the present government." The Chairman rose to order; but the cries ot rut out the whig*," accompanied with groans and shouts, prevented his being heard. Mr. Tom Steele rose again to order, and, in a loud voice, demanded to know whether any enemy to Ireland was simple enough to think he could be bellowed down ? Order having been restored, he said the only question before the chair was the insertion of Mr. John O'C'on. ncll's letter on the minutes. The motion then passed. Mr. Rav read a statistical table showing the religious and political opinions of all the magistracy of Ireland. Of Protostants there appeared to be 'J63'J, and Catholics but 419. All the Protestants were assumed to be Tories, while a large section of the Romanists were designated Orange Papists Mr. Ray, Mr. Dunn, and Mr. Clements descanted on the gross injustice of this virtual exclusion of Catholics from the magisterial bench in Irclund. The clause introduced into the Poor Law 15111 by the government for equalising the number of ex officio with elected guardians would, if carried into a law. throw the whole administration of the act into the hands of thu Protestant and I and Tory magistracy of Ireland. Mr. J. Reynolds said if that clause passed the new board would plunder tnd oppress thu Irish yeople in an Intolerable manner. The rent was announced to be 4,'ltf Us. 6d.. and the meeting separated. Portugal. Our advices from Oporto arc to the 'Jlst of February, i Marshal Saldnnha. with 7000 men. 900 of whom are cavalry, is at Vendas Novas and Olivcira dc Axcmeir, throe or four leagues south of Oporto. lie has threatened daily to cross the river at Corvciro. and he has disappointed all his friends by not huving done so. as he had an opportunity, which may not agaiu occur, of intercepting Das Antas on his returning from Viauna. and of striking a blow which might have been fatal to the Junta. No one can understand what Suldanha is a limit as he has allowed reinforcements of every kind to couie in. and the Junta are now prepurcd to give him a warm reception. The Queen's General. Casal. who proposed making a stund ugainst Das Antas at Viauna, has abandoned that city. The Queen's cause has received u great blow by the desertion of the Porto steamer. This merchant bout had been hired at Lisbon and fitted up as a wur steamer, and wes verv useful in carrying despatches along the coast, ana assisting in tne diockuuo. un leaving vigo two uay* since the steward and crew mutinied, overpowered the officer*, and then brought tlio Porto into the Souro and aurrendered her to the Junta. The Junta has now lour steamer*?the Mindella, Porto. Duke of Oporto, und the Vesuvius; while tho Queen has none, unless, as it is rumored. she lias hired the Royal Tar. The inertness of Marshal Suldanha. the retreat of Casal. tho return of Das Antas. the escape of old Povoae. and the coming in of the Porto steamer have advauced the cause of the Junta materially. "The blockade is only nominal: vessels every day. when the bar is free, go in and out. It was by the Queen's decree suspended to the 20th. and 1500 pipes of port'wine were shipped for England in the seven previous days. "The Junta has se.sed on all bills coming due in the bank here of the bank of Lisbon. This hum and the receipts of the custom house, which have been considerable on import* and exports, give them fur the present abundant fund*. 'The Spanish government arc working hard to make out a cause of interference ugainst the Junta. I have seen a dispatch from the Captain General of Oalicia. stating that the frontiers are disturbed by partbaus of the Junta, und that orders are given not only to put down those people, but to follow them up without any respect to territorial boundaries. Tho list of grievances against the Junta are numerous, relating principally to the Spanish brig-of-war and steamer in the Douro being made an asylum for the ehartists. and for the persecution directed by the Junta against a Spanish subject who made himself notorious here. "The lines are well manned, and two regiments sent out to contest the passing of the river by Suldanha. "Saldanha is, I am told, most sanguine, and instead of being annoyed at Oporto being reinforced, he congratulates himself on having the whole of the insurgenis in one place. "Several Miguelite partisans are acting under the Junta, but no union between them has taken, or will take place.'' Markets. London Monev Market. Tuesday F.venlng.

The statement made by the French Minister of Finance, contradicting the report that a considerable loan would be required for tho service of the year, lias been the leadline tonic of discussion on the Stock Kxehancrc The statement made by the minister is not generally credited here.people's minds having been biassed by the reiterated averments of the French opposition press respecting the deficiency of the treasury for the current expenditure. It is not at ail probable, however, that any Minister either in Frute or England. vmM eo pewtlrejy commit himself in the Legislative Assembly to a specific fact, unless ho saw his way clearly at least, to the end of the present yeur. It may, therefore we thiuk, bo safely taken for granted that there will be no loan made by the French government at present, so that this incubus is removeafrom the money market.

The Last Scene in the Last Act or the Ex- . Monk Leaiiet.?The Rev. E. Leabcy's lecture last ' night at the Tabernacle, was but slightly attended. I The speaker, however, was frequently obliged to stop, from the continued hisses, groans, thumping of sticks, clapping of hands, mixed in with the crys of ''you're n liar." "Set down, you old beast." "Irish blackguard." and many other terms of disapprobation. At the close of his lecture, the audience, instead of retiring in the usual manner, began to gather around the platform where Leaky was standing, showing great demonstrations of ill temper; but in consequence of a large force of police from the fifth and sixth ward*. Leahey was enabled to proceed towards the door into the street, where some Ave or six hundred persons were congregated awaiting his appearance, and as soon as he appeared a loud shout was givcu and a rush made (It was said to ride him on a rail or tar and feather him.) Fortunately by the aid of the police, ho took shelter In one of the Broadway omnibuses, missing, luckily, several paving stones, which struck the stage instead of the monk's head, as evidently intended?the drUer whipped up his horses aud away the stage went up Broadway at a good pace, with a mob of between four aud five hundred men in close pursuit, hallooing and hooting at the top of their voices. The horses became baulky when opposite the Olympic theatre, which gave timo for the mob to assemble, and tben a general rush was made for the stage, with shouts of "pull him out, "pull him out," st the same timo mixing in a few bricks and stone*, which came bang against the stage, terrifying the poor monk to such a degree that be could scarcely speak. This alarm brought out the larger portion of the midience from the theatre, which added considerably to the already collected mob. Officers Leonard and Brown, stage inspectors, imnieilldiatvly jumped on the step of the stage ii ml ordered the driver to wnlp up and go t, on, while they protected the door. Thin was h dour, and the stago passed up Broadway to Spring street; down Spring to Mercer; along Mercer to PHnce, ti and down Prince street to the corner Of Woostor street; a and by this time, the driver running his horses pretty o fust, obtained some headway on the inoh. when officer K Leonard opened the stage door, handed the frightened monk to the side walk .and ruu him into the Hth ward police station bouse as ouirkly as possible. The driver passed on, _ and the mob followed on after the stage, evidently with intent to do something desporate; but luckily for all par- ' tics, through the ingenuity mid good management of the ?] above officers, the rioters was frustrated.- And thus ended Ji the lust lecture of ex-Monk Leakey, by lodging him iu J the station-house for safety. j Tub Hot els.?Strangers eoutlnuu to Bock into the different hotels in liumcusc numbers from all parts of the Union.

The declared value of exported goods in 845, was ?53,298,026. In 1846 the value delared was ?51,279,735. [From the Liverpool Chronicle, March 13.] Commercial Keview.?The long prevalence of asterly winds made the present week, up to 'hursday, in almost all branches of trade, "dull s the weed that rots by Lethe's stream." On fiat duy the wind veered round, and the conseuence has been a large influx of vessels. The rrivals have been numerous. Yesterday, the late at the Exchange-room showed a goodly aray from all parts of the world, amongst them seeral provision laden vessels from the United Hates. Every subsequent tide will bring addiional numbers. The corn, like most other branches of trade has een dull. On Tuesday flour was offered on omewhat lowej terms, and yesterday another eduction to the extent of sixpence to a shilling er barrel took place. Indian corn, becoming carce, has advanced in price. The transmission f supplies to Ireland continue:), and leaves the larket bare. The cotton trade is no exception to the preailiug dullness. Prices during the week have needed fully an eighth, but the decline offers no nducement to purchasers. The working of short Line in Manchester and the neighborhood, opeites as a bar to an extensive demand. The sales esterday were 300 bags, and the transactions of le week amount in the aggregate to 35,000 bags, ly the Virginia, yesterday, we learn that the reeipts at the Atlantic ports exceeded by 48,000 ales the receipts of the corresponding period lust ear.

Tho receipts for tho first ten weeks of the current half year show an increase of ?926 over tho corresponding teu weeks of last year, but even if the receipts for the rumainiug sixteen weeks should show a decrease of ?2.600 per week, still the directors could pay a dividend of 4% per cent, out of the half year's earnings, which would yield a return of i fully 6% per cunt per annum to the party who purchased at ?117. We may also notice Midland Stock sold yesterday at ?116, which would yiuld a return to the purchaser equal to about 6% per cent per annum; and here there is no falling off in the receipts, as they show an increase of ?19,600 on tho first tun weeks of the current helf year as compared with the aorrespondlng period of j last yearNotwithstunding the "gloomy forebodings of a host of interested alarmists, or habitual croakers, wo think ourselves warranted in conilluding from the foregoing facts, that the present is a most favorable opportunity for ; wealtho prudent men to invest their surplus capital in sound railway undertakings.

Theatricals. Park Tiikatri:.?'There was a good attendanoc at the Park agaiu laat evening, when Mr. Wallack appeared in hiB two beautifhl piecce of " Don C**ar de Batan " and " Ernestine." The character of Frederick, in the comedy of " Ernestine," la one of those in which Mr. W.'s talent shows itself to the very greatest advantage. Light, humorous, gay, but, withal, kind-hearted, he represents one of those characters which are welcome either on the boards or on the wider stage of life, it is, if anything, preferable to Dick Dashall, and will always prove a sure remedy for the blues. Of "Don Cssaar" mention has already been made at length, and it is only necessary to say tnnt'lt was as good as usual. The stock, In " Ernestine." as well as in the other piece, played admirably. Mrs. Hunt plays Maritana. in " Don Cmsar." and Marie, iu " Ernestine." to perfection. To-night, these two pieces are to be repeated.

Circus?-Bowery Amvhitheatre.?The entertainments at this popular establishment will be of the richest order to-night, and we have no doubt that a crowded bouso will be in attendance to witness the eccentricities of the famous clown, Mr. Kemp, who, in addition to his very extraordinary cask tricks, will repeat his comic ballot of " Fun and Physic," and it is physic of the pleasantest kind, and such as the faculty will doubtless highly recommend. His scientific pugilistic display with Mr. <;ole is worth going a mile to witness.

When the H tsu il number of Vice Presidents and Secretaries H were appointed, Alderman Walker read the re- H >ort of the nominating convention, which was manimovaly adopted. Losr.szo U SutWO RD. Lsij . being loudly called Upon, I mettle hi" appearunce ou the platform and addressed the rneetine in the following MylaKellow-citizcus?Tho .. eriaia In the hiStOrV of the dt-innrrafl/. ?a very iuiportuut crisis In two point* of view it (i important in tlio first place in reference to our approaching city election. and In tin* second place it is important in reference to the influence which the result of that election will hate on the democratic party throughout the country In the first place, let me speak of our own interests hero It is true that uuder ordinary circumstances it matters little whether we succeed on subjects which arc merely local in their character, but at the approaching election something infinitely moru Important than local subjects are to ho decided There are. I regret to say. some splits in some of the wards. It appears to me as if the principles handed down to us by tne immortal Jefferson are thrown asido and considcratiou other allowed to take their place. This state of things must he cured, or It will he curi.j for us in a wfty that will not please us. I consider the step takeu by the nominating Convention as u good step, and I think the result wjll prove it. I am grutifled at the nominatious niaj,, by that body, and although I considered it my duty to support another gentleman for the mayoralty?the gentleman now by my side, (Mr. Oillman.)?yet I am here to-tight to support the nominee of the conven ti?n al,j i finj him hero too. (Cheers.) Yes, uud I find you here, and all are bound to the support of one of tile noblest men that ever trod American soil?a man honest uud uncorrupted?a man whose virtues are appreciated?a man wuoso benevolence extends to every one in I speak of J. Sherman Brownell, and I know that the great democratic party on the day of election will send forth a pulsation of his victory, the unmistakeahlo tones of which will be beard in every part of the Union.? in the nomination of Mr. Leonnrd for tho office of Alms House Commissioner, I am satisfied that every one will find sufficient cause, to bury any prefor cnccg ho may have had for any other person. Mr. Leonard it a good man. and it behooves us to stand by him and carry him triumphantly, throughout tho city, in order to do it, let every democrat, in every ward, when he looks at hia ticket, forget that there is a name on it. It is ono of the leading features of the democratic creed, to support regular nominations. Wo have the regular nominations before us. and tho man who will not vote for them, abandons his duty us a democrat, and is a traitor to his party. It is only by such means as these, that our party can bo kept together. It is only by such means as these?by the disposition to inuko sacrifices when necessary?by the disposition to give up minor considerations, that our party can be made what our fathers made it, and what they exported to hand dowu to their children. Let me say something in regard to this election, and its influeuco in other placos. It is to Tummany Hall that people at a distance look for the populnr voice in this city, and let me tell you. that this city, and this venerable edifice, have now tho eyes of the nation resting on them. I do not say too much, when 1 tell you that the resolutions adopted here, and the addresses delivered here, go over tho whole Union, and are regarded as the sound expositions of democratic faith. It lias alwnys been so, and if the democratic party is true to itself it will always l>o so There is no oounly in the part of the Union where our resolutions are not read. It is desirable that this voice should retain its potency, und it will, so long as our democrats here are united. They may fail occasionally. A combination may be made against them, as was the case a few vears ago. that may defeat tbem for once; but having the majority here, they are alwnys sure to'come up in the long run. Now,fellow citizens, on what depends your influence? You who send forth your resolutions to every part of the Union? I ask on what depends this influence; it depends on yur own democratic character. It depends on the consideration that whenever it becomes necessary to tuke a new and untrod step in government, you have taken that step, and curried it out on sound democratic prinoiples. It is on this that your influence depends. If you allow it to bo sent forth over the whole Union that the democratic party is defeated, that they have lost their power in their stronghold. I ask what will be tho effect Will it not shame us all, and shake the great Influence we have always exercised? Mr. Shepherd then spoke of the war as a national question, and said that 011 that subject, at all events, there should not be two parties? although thero are two parties on it. Will you, fellow citizens, he continued, be accused of having changed your opinions on this great question, and taken sides with the wliigs, in denying the justice and necessity of it? This will be one of the results of your defeAt; nnd Mr. Greeley, who stands not far from here, will bo the first to publish it over the whole country. Would to God "that every democrat felt as I do, und would vote for the regular nominations in their respective wards. If that feeling pervaded our ranks, we would be sure of victory, and the expectations of success which are now Indulged in by our opponents would be disappointed. Mr. Shepherd then sat down, and was suocecdcd by Mr. Ahculahic*,* who said that the time had come round again when we are called upon to express our opinions on political matters. We have assembled here this evening to confirm the nominations that have been /nude by the Convention for Mayor and Alms House Commissioner?the first, J. Sherman Browuell. and the second, Moses G. Leonard. ((Applause.) Mr. Brownell, since his nomination, has received soma pretty severe handling^from our friend* tbe whit*, and the conclusion they have come to in, that he hi one of the b'hoys, (Daughter.) This appear* to be a catch word with them since hi* nomination, and why ? Because Mr. Brownell, like an honest and unassuming man, goes round the street* of the city, talk* with hi* fellow citizens, and discusses the political question* of tho day. Tho editor of the Courier, whether he did or not write the article which recently appeared in that paper abusing Mr. Brownell?for whether ho wrote it or not, ho Is responsible for it?would have been consigned to tho colls of the State prison for two years if Air. Brownell. the man whom lie abuse* so lustily now, had not exertod himself to procure his pardon. Tola editor is abusing a man infinitely hi* superior in every respect. If this editor, who shatters men * arms, were seen in company with Sherman Brownell. what would Mr. BrowueU's friends say ? Why, they would say "Sherman, how can you forget yourself so much as to walk with a man who, on two occasions, threw the city into an uproar o excitement, and broke tho pcaco on several occasionsV"' And would there not be cause for such an ex clamation, If Mr. Brownell were seen walking with this editor who now ubuses him?this Webb. I mean?or the writer of the article I refer to?the samo man who went to Washington, and asked Mr. Polk for a brigadier-generalship. and turned round : and abused him, because the President conferred it on a man of his own choioe, and a man too. more deserving of it. We have force enough to elect Mr. Brownell. and we will do it. In raff rence to our candidate for alms house commissioner, no charge can be made against him. He has been weighed in tho balance, and not found wanting. little row here occurred, at the far end of the room, which drowned the speaker's voice for a few minutes.! The gentleman who preceded me said, ".that every democrat should vote without looking at his ticket ; that be should vote it, if it were even a blank." That may be ; but I can tell you that Sherman Brownell is not a blank by. any means. [Laughter.] In good health, he weighs three hundred and twelve pounds, eleven ounces, net; and before tbe setting of Tuesday's nun be will weigh tnrce tnousaua inrcc nunarou ana twelve Mr. Arcul&rius, like the speaker who preceded him, then touched on the Mexican war, on which he said the democratic party is to a man united. When the tlrst sound of the trumpot resounded in our midst, the city of New V'ork sent to Mexico, to tight the battle# of our country. 1600 of her choicest sons, men who would would cast their votes for our nominations, if they war# here. He then referred to the stand taken by the Sunday press in this city (meaning the Herald), on the war, and snid that it was praiseworthy and honorable. I have, said he. read their remarks with pleasure, and it gratifies mo much to see the working man. after the toils of the week are over, buy a paper on Sunday morning for two or three cents (wo charge only two cents for tho Herald, but the newsboys charge three, and sometimes four and six cents, when they get the chanco), and read the news of the week, as well as the admirable and patriotic remarks which it contains on the war. 1 subscribe for three of them, myself (we had no Idea that Mr. Arcularius is so favorable to tho Herald as to subscribe for three copies), and would subscribe for fifty more, if I could. (This is a vtry fiattering compliment). '1 lie Sunday press was the first to publish to the world the unfortunate condition of the Irish, when the wail of grief reached our ahuros. He ooncluded by saying that if the democratic voters did their duty. next Tuesday evening would witness the election of thirteen mombert of the Common Council, and of Mr. Brownell, as Mayor. Mr. Liomel A. Musi next came forward to address the meeting. After a few remarks by way of apology for his Inability to do Justice to the task,he observed?1 have c.omc forward, and that gladly, torospond to the name of J. Sherman Brownell. (Cheers.) He is no stranger here; he was born and brought up amongst you, aud ho now comes forward for your support, your votes, to eloct him chief magistrate of y6ur city, and it depend* upon your unity of action to cjirry tli? approaching election ? it depends on you whether J. 8.
