BEOTiBm LETTERS PROM EUROPE. Paris, April 26, 1847. Opinion Abroad of Gonerai Taylor?'The Kffect of American Bravery?Knropean Intel* * ventlon In the Mexican War?Affairs on the Continent of Kurope, die., die. The news of the fighting between General Tay- i lor and Santa Anna, before Saltillo, has produced a great sensation in Europe. The contradictory nature of the accounts, ut first, and the want of official details, had thrown the journals of London and Paris into great exultation at the prospect of a reverse of the American arms?but we have just received General Taylor's admirable despatches, and all is right. There is no great sympathy for Mexico, either among the governments or the journals of Europe; but there is an eagerness to interpret everything in favor of Mexico, and against the United States. It is truly astonishing how these feelings burst out beyond all control, at every opportunity. The government journals of England are not more overjoyed at what they call the reverses of the American arms, than the organs of the French ministry, in Paris. I might multiply facts upon facts, on this general sentiment towards the United States, but it is inrv Ii is sincrulnr. also to remark this unfriendly and hateful sentiment mixed up, in the same journals, with hopes on the American capacity to feed their poor, and to express their Constant dependence on our breadstufl's to supply the deficiency of their own crops. They like American bread?but hate American battles. The statesmen, politicians, and journalists of London and Paris, frequently receive Americans introduced to them with much politeness and uttention; but there exists among the governments of Europe a dread and jealousy of the United States, almost amounting to hatred and utter aversion. What do they hate? What do they fear? What alarms them ? It is our institutions?our laws? our prosperity under republican forms, which cause all this feeling of envy and hatred. They are afraid of the influence of American institutions upon the people of Europe. They dread their monopoly of power, pomp, and pride. Everything that can be said in depreciation of American affairs, is brought up and paraded in their journals. There is not a single newspaper in Paris that understands American affairs, or takes any interest in presenting them in a just light to their readers. That portion which is called the liberal or republican newspapers, oc casionally say a word in palliation ot the constant stream of calumny, but the whole mass of government organs are constant and invariable in their calumny, contempt, and depreciation of the United States government, people and public affairs. The only matters for which they have any respect are our corn, cotton, and provisions. For years has slavery been a standing dish, and to this is added the war against Mexico?its injustice, its wickedness, its folly, and its probable disastrous results. Heretofore, when General Taylor gained a battle, every effort was made by the press of London and Paris to throw ridicule and sarcasm over his success ; now, as in the recent news by the steamer, when the accounts were conflicting, they exulted for a few days in the chances of his defeat or reverses, at least. These are the views and feelings of the governments and the nress of western Eurnim. In the other portions of this continent, the same direction is generally taken?for all American intelligence passes through Paris and London to the other capitals of Europe, and accordingly, takes the Paris and London stamp in making the transit. The United States hfE* e no friends among the governments of Europe; no friends among the journals of Europe. Yet, there is a portion of the population over the whole continent, who look upon the United States as the only existing beau ideal of government, laws, and society in the world. The working classes, f hn lnrlnutri/ntQ nnrvlil af 1/rn f l?nl olnaa nf QAoiatir lrom which the unnual emigration proceeds, are favorable and friendly to American institutions and principles, evea in spite of the constant defamation of the press, which is under the influence entirely of the higher classes of society. If, under the institutions and laws of the American republic, that country is enabled to feed the starving population of western Europe, they cannot believe that a republican government is so very bad, or that kings and uristocracies are so absolutely necessary to human happiness, although it may be to human starvation. Indeed, recent events have created such ideas in Europe among the industrious population, that emigration to the United States will be greater than in any former age. From Germany nnd the north of Europe, this movement will be tremendous. The French people have little of this emigrating spirit. They are possessed with the notion that la btllt France is the only country worth living in?the only land of taste and happiness. As a people, they have little knowledge of practical politics. When their government does not unswer their expectations, they seek a revolution and a chunge of dynasty. When that purpose has been effected, they quietly sit down to amuse themselves ?allow their government to follow, almost unchecked, its own impulses?and only again think of public affairs seriously, when they are ready for another revolution. The French nation is, in some respects, merely a reproduction of the old Roman empire, on a smaller scale in geography?with Paris for the imperial city, and the departments for its provinces. I believe that the next great popular transition in Europe will spring up in Germany?France is immovable. I formed this opinion during my tour through Germany, from south to north, last summer. The intellect of Germany is in a wonderful state of activity. The Germans are a calm, quiet, resolute, persevering, and also a profound race. In regard to the higher capacities of man's nature, they are the most extraordinary race in Europe. Religion and philoso. phy have occupied their study and uttention for three centuries?they are now entering upon politics?the rights of princes and people?the ori- | gin and practice of governments. he first movement of these slumbering sentiments, is, 1 undoubtedly, the opening of the Prussinn Diet. ! This remarkable event has attracted a profound ' attention in Europe. The journals of London and Paris are full of the subject. The King's * curious speech lias been commented upon in tvery way?sometimes with contempt?some- ' times with Rareasin. The speech is certainly a I queer thing?part prayer, part poetry, part philo- 1 sophy, part religion, and part twaddle. The ' Diet has already manifested symptoms of opposi- * tion to the government?or perhaps of further ^ movement, and extension of popular rights, h i his will increase slowly hut surely, on the Ger- P man method?not by fits forward and backward in the French style. ct All Germany, I understand, is in a state of deep ^ and profound fermentation. The Prussian Diet n< is the object of their constant attention, from the " Adriatic to the Baltic. In Paris, the King's ft speech has been treated with great freedom, and n much severe criticibiu. This, probably, has been | ti increased bj the fact, that Frederic apoke very contemptuously of written shatters in general, and attributed the prosperity of Francs since 1830, to the wisdom of Louis Philippe, and not to the efficacy of the French charter. There is, however, a good deal of truth in this remark. The constitution of a government must exist in the living minds of an intelligent people, in order to give permanent vigor to its written enactments. The French journals are trying to find parallels between the States General of 1787, in Paris, and that of the Diet now sitting in Berlin; The J:tt*..uni?, h.. two nutiona are different? the state of men's minds is different?and uhove all, the German people are more quiet, sober, and persevering than the French. Yet I should not at ull be surprised, if the opening of the Prussian Diet were to he the beginning of a social, political and religious revolution in Europe, thut will surpasB any event of the kind that ever took place in the world. In Germany, there are nearly fifty millions who write and speak the same languuge are animated by the same ideas?possess the same traditions?entertain the same general purposes of reform in all the departments of existence. There is also much more correct political knowledge among the Germans than among the French. Germany has a great many large cities?but no single capital to which every other city looks up for fresh news?and first ideas. It is the aggregate active intellect of ucrmany upt produces public opinion ana moral weight?and not the sudden rmeute of a turbulent population, set in motion by agitation, in a single capital. A revolution in Germany will be a slow, gradual, certain, onward process, like the rise of the tide, or the growth of a forest ?and not a sudden explosion, containing equal proportions of liberty and licentiousness?to be succeeded by despotism or corruption in all the avenues of society and government. I like the Germans?as a people they, probably, form a more liberal and correct opinion of the United States, than any other in Europe. But to return to General Taylor, and the war on the Rio Grande. The accounts by the last steamer*had left that gallant man victor, it is true, in the field, but still surrounded and enclosed by the Mexicans in such a way as to leave his position critical. Every American here believed that he would overcome his difficulties, and his despatches satisfied that belief? but all unite in censuring the imbecility and injustice of the American government?both President and Congress?in conspiring to place him in that unequal and untoward position. We are still anxious for the next news about Vera Cruz ?and until that comes we will be poring over the last accounts, to extract comfort from their Among military men, General Taylor is considered bne of the greatest generals of the age. It is asserted, without hesitation, that he has performed as much with the means at his command, as ever Napoleon or Wellington did. I was informed this morning by a gentleman, formerly a distinguished diplomatist in Europe, that Marshal Soult, on reading the recent news, and particularly Gen. Taylor's despatches, declared, in emphatic language? " Voila un toldat"?as much as to say " a great general?a very great general." These are private opinions naturally coming from competent judges, but Buch ideas are never allowed to influence the press or general thought, which is invariably hostile to American affairs. The treatment of General Taylor by his own government, in giving the chief command to unother, and in taking from him his best troops, is very much blamed here by every American. On this point there is no division of opinion. 1 trust that before this can reach New York, every anticipation that we now entertain of General Taylor, will have come out right end uppermost. His talents?his moderation?his wisdom?his modesty?the simple dignity of his despatches?and his conduct in the field and in the council, have already created in Europe a greater name for American capacity and power, than any event since the revolution or the deeds of Washington. Whatever be the character of the motives which caused the Mexican war, there is no getting rid of that business without fighting it out at any cost. The United States must exert at once sufficient force to close it gloriously. The governments of Western Europe arc only waiting a chance to interfere to our disadvantage. 1 have heard it said that secret overtures havs been made here by agents from Mexico, to establish a monarchy there; in order to check and oppose, on the American continent, the progress of those republican ideas which have their principal central power in the United States. I am perfectly sure that all the leading governments on this continent would gladly embrace any policy that had for its object the curtailment and diminution of the power and influence of the United States, which threatens to be the great leading republican power throughout the civilized world. Direct hostilities with the United States are too dangerous to the commercial interests of France and England, to venture upon that kind of policy ; but indirect aid and assistance furnished to Mexico, to enable that nation to carry on the war, would, no doubt, be gladly adopted, particularly if it were coupled with a prospect of establishing a monarchy in Mexico, as a direct counterpoise to the United States. It' the Mexican war continue another year, and if it should not be followed up with brilliancy and decision on the part of the United States, the American people may expect some very grave and very important intervention, or attempt at intervention, on the part of Europe. The monarchies of Europe are only waiting for a proper chance to form a coalition for this purpose. They hate, and fear, and deprecate the American republic, as a central point of great influence and great injury to the government systems of Europe. This dangerous republican power has been tearfully increased of late, by the establishment of steamers across the Atlantic, the rapidity and interchange of political intelligence, and particularly by the lust great development, that of the capacity of the United States to carry on a war by sea and land against ten millions of people, at the same time .1 1 1 .1 -C < -> iiini niry nau mc means oi ieeaing me starving populations of Western Europe by their surplus food; and actually, in one outburst of charity, of a few weeks' duration, send #1,000,000 worth of provisions to the hungry people of Ireland. In France, with a population of 115,000,000, the aggregate contributions to the sufferers on the Loire ? to their own people ? only reached $500,000, or only one-half what the United States?a population of 20,000,000?have given to Ireland. We arc decidedly in the first stage of a great transition in the civilized world. Europe and America now form, and arc forming, a single community of nations. Steam, electricity, the iress, applied to all the practical purposes of life, lave removed mountains and oceans that fornorly separated different nations. The United States has entered upon a new era of her wonlerful history;and her statesmen, her politicians, er generals, her journalists, ought to study that osition, and take advantage of every element ivorable to her progress in a right direction. A aim, quiet, and philosophical investigation of j le governments and nations of Europe, is more * ecessary than ever to the public men of Aine- ] .... U/.. ant ...I *1. ;nLr nn,l ?... -i >r an American community, hut for a conimu- t ity in Europe, who are ulways ready to judge ? s hastily and harshly; who hate our insti- h tutiona, dread our increasing power and influence, and would adopt any policy, consistent with their own safety, to check our progress, disgrace our urma, or dismember our Union. ' Europe looks backwards, America looks forward. The future of the United States opens a prospect of unbounded happiness and influence, if the people and their public men are true to themselves, and wise in their generation. The prosj>ect of Europe, us far as the eye of prediction can accurately reach, is full of changes, commotions, tumults, insurrections, and revolu- i tionB?leading, probably, after u long series of events, to peace and probable prosperity, under more liberal system of governments. 1 came to Europe for the purpose of studying out these new relutions of the two continents, produced by the wonderful physical improvements of the age. In England, in France, in Italy, in Germany, everywhere, I have been busy on these objects. Every statesman and every journalist ought to go through the same process of calm investigation into these new and weighty relations. This cannot be done in a hurried tour of a few summer months, through France and England, with a run to Baden, or to the Alps. You must go leisurely on your way, us a contemplative student and philosopher; calmly investigate the shapes and tendencies of all the elements of civilization, and resolutely work out their differences as compared with the United States. I have done so, from the minute to the comprehensive ; embracing politics, government, religion, society, art, philosophy, and particularly the press. The state and condition of the press, and its connection with government and the peopfc, 1 have studied with care. For this purpose 1 have visited almost every capital, or city of note in Europe?in living, fermenting, changing, transition Europe. On my return to New York, I think, with these investigations and facts, 1 shull be able to do something for the American press, that will aid, somewhat, the onward march of the republic to greatness, power, and dignity. At all events, I will try. Latkk from Venezuela.?We ure in receipt of Caraccas papers to the 24th ultimo. The principal piece of news that they contain is, that the House of Representatives had for the third time read the bill which would produce a change in the tariff, from the former specific rates to an ad valorem scale. Distinguished Arrival.?The Hon. Mr. Wheaton and family arrived on Friday, in the packet ship Baltimore, from Havre. Theatrical. Park Theatre.?The performances at the Park tomorrow evening will be for the benefit of Mr. Bass, and the bill is as attractive as the beneficiary Is deserving. M'lle. Blangy, supported by Miss Vallee, and Mons. Bouxary will appear in two ballets, viz.: "L'Illusion d'un Peintre," and " La Napolitane." The " Man of the World" will be performed, in which Mr. Boss will appear as Sir Pertlnax Mao Sycophant, sustained by the talent of tho torpa dramatique, and tlie whole will conclude with the petit comedy, presented for the first time. and entitled a''ltace for Dinner." The frequenters of the Park will all recollect at once how muoh they have been indebted of late to Mr. Bass for their entertainment at that house, and will, we have no doubt, act accordingly. That is to say, they will serve Mr. Bass as he has often served them. Make him smile good humouredly at their display. He has played often for them, he now asks that they perform a small part themselves. Buy a ticket. Bowery Theatre. ?The great feature of last evening's performances, was tho debut of Miss Catharine Wemyss, niece of the respected manager of this theatre. From what we had heard of this young lady's personal appearance and mental acquirements, we considered ourselves justified to say, in advance of her appearance, that we doubted not her oareer would be as successful as we were satisfied her reception would be enthusiastic. We had the pleasure of witnessing her debut last evening. and we are rejoiced to find that we have no reason to legret having expressed the opinion we did. Miss Wemyss did, inded, make a successful first appearance. Her personation of raullne, in the "Lady of Lyons,'' was, on the whole, an admirable piecu of acting, taking the circumstances into consideration, and imf>ressed us with tho conviction, that the young ady will yet shine brightly in the dramatic circle. She is exceedingly graceful iu her attitude; and saving the natural timldity'and bashfulness which all debutantet experience, she would have passed as an actress of great merit. The consciousness that the eyes of three or four thousand spectators were centred upon a lady who never before appeared in public, of course prevented her from doing as well as she could do. Her personal aDt>earanc? is every thing that could bo desired ;|hor reading is without a blemish?while her conception is faultless ? The last quality she possesses in an eminent degree, "and it is on this that we base our opinion that she will be an ornament to her prolession. We congratulate Miss Wemyss on her successful debut, ana presage for her a successful career. We consider it unnecessary to say more of Mr. Murdoch's Claude Melnotts, further than that be performed it in his usual capital manner. In a word, his personation of it was excellent. We congratulate the patrons of the Bowery on the treat in store for them to-morrow evening. We understand that the manager has entered into an engagement with Mr. Booth, and that celebrated tragedian will appear to-morrow evening as Hamlet, in the tragedy of that name. The success which has attended the Bowery under its present management is, we believe, without precedent in the history of the drama in tho United States. There is seldom or never, what can be called a small house. Night after night, and week after week, this dramatic temple is crowded to excess, and no sooner is one new piece produced on its stage, than the manager is engaged in catering for another. This is the great secret of the success of the Bowery. The stock company is excellent, and comprises men who might successfully appear on any stage. The door-keepers are polite and gentlemanly; and if a little of the good breeding which eminently distinguishes Mr. Jackson, was instilled into the box-keeper who attends to the right hand side of the lower tier, there would not be a single drawback to this establishment. Coliseum.?An exhibition of a grand moving panorama of the Battles in Mexico, will commence to-morrow evening, at 450 Broa lway. The paintings consist of the Bombardment of Matamoras, the Battle of Buena Vista, T unrtlnff of t.Vio Amprlc#n orrnwr of Vo?a r?..? D?*4i?i^# Cerro tTordo, and a magnificent view of the City of Mexico Subjects of such deep interest must necessarily draw large audiences, to behold faithful representations of the various scenes of the respective armies under (iens. Taylor and Scott, in their glorious military achievements. Mnalcal. Italian Ofeba.?Slgnor Beneventano took his benefit at Palmo's lost evening. The audience, though not so large as his friends could have desired, was select, and gave the most cheering evidence of the high estimation in which they held tho talented beneficiary. "1 Lombard!'' was performed in a manner whleh did great credit to the performers. Barili sang as sweetly as ever, and Benedetti was. as usual, master of his part, while Beneventanofhimself gave full force and great effect to the part in which he has so often brought down loud demonstrations of applause from the audience. At the close of the 3d act, the performers were called out, and received special marks of commendation from their hearers. W? cannot understand why tho house was not filled. Certainly,; Slgnor Beneventano deserved that it should be so. lie has never failed to perform his promises. Kver pleasant; always proficient; and a constant desira to serve those who seek amusement at the opera, one would think that his merits would have been appreciated, and that the small house in Chambers street would have been crowded. But even as it was. we are happy to know that the occasion was marked by events which will give Signer B. to understand how really his friends appreciate his services in the company, and his worth as a gentleman 'TLomhardl" will be repeated to-morrow night, whicli will bo the last but one of tho second season. On Thursday evening, bignora rico takes a benefit Castle Oabdev.?This ovening there will be a grand concert of sacred music at the Harden, by Dodworth's ' celebrated cornet band. Several of the most beautiful \ pieces, among which are " Sound the I.oud Timbrel," " Prayer from Moses in Kgypt,'' " Prayer from Zumpa," and others. What more delightful, edifying manner of spending the Sabbath evening, and of conducing to health, than by visiting this health giving location, wn?ru pleasure or an intellectual and musical character can be enjoyed, by beholding a splendid bay and rich rural scenery, and at the same time listening to the thrilling touches of music dedicated to the Almighty.? We hope to see the garden crowded, as also to see the proprietors once more enabled, by law, to afford nightly amusement to the frequenters of this beautiful summer evening retreat. Vauxham, Oakprw.?Mr. K. Myers gives a sacred concert at the above popular and pleasant up-lown retreat this evening. Heveral favorite sacred pieces are selected for the occasion. The proprietor of the Garden, Mr. Bradford Jones, is using every means to render this establishment attractive by giving concerts every evening during the week, under the superintendence of Mr. Austin Phillips, end the utmost pains are taken to have the visiters select and the strictest order maintained The Garden and HiUooti are fitted up witli taste and uoatnoss, and the refreshments are of the first quality. CnatsTv's Mimstski.s remain for ono week longer at Mechanics1 Hall, which we are assured will be thi ir last. The success of this company Is truly astonishing. Wght after night they have been greeted with crowded ind most fashionable audiences the patronage hetowed on their performances exceeds every musiunl unertalnment of a similar character previously witnessed n this city. All wo can say Is, that they deserve it . heir soiree* are well conducted. exceedingly chaste, and ilgbly Amusing. Antrm! oTths Adam Carr ftm Olocgow.. An Kxlraordlnary PuMff* rnr the Atlantic-. Thrilling Account of a Pr?rtfnl Shipwreck. The tine packet ship Adam Carr, Capt. Wright, belonging to Messrs. Woodhull and Minturn's line of Glasgow packets, arrived yesterday morning from the Clyde. She made the passage in sixteen days?a speed almost unparalleled in the annals of navigation. Our papers are not to the day of the sailing of the Adam Carr, but we have received, by the kindness of Captain Wright, the Olangow Herald of the 3d instant. The Herald gives the following account of the dreadful shipwreck of the brig Exmouth, with two hundred and forty lives. [Krom the Glasgow Herald, May 3.] We anuounce with extreme pain, that during the storm of last week, a lamentable shipwreck has occurred on the shores of Islav. being accompanied with the most extensive loss of life which has taken place on the west coast of Scotland within our remembrance. The intelligence was brought to Glasgow on Saturday afternoon last, by three seamen, being the only survivors of the crew and passengers of the brig Exmouth of Newcastle, who had been forwarded from lslay in the Modern Athens steamer, by Mr. Chiene, the factor for Mr. Campbell, of lslay. According to their statement, the Exmouth, of 3-10 tons, of wbicn Isaac Booth of Sunderland was master, sailed from Londonderry for Quebec between three and flfhr o'clock, on the morning of Sunday the !Mth ult., with a light south-west breeie. She had a crew of eleven men, (inclusive of the captain.) and about '.140 emigrants, consisting principally of small farmers and tradesmen with their families, who had turned their little all into money, for the purpose of escaping the famine and earning for themselves a home in the western world. Many were females and children going out to join their fathers and proteetors, who had already settled in Canada, and who had beckoned those who were dear to them across the Atlnntio. There were also three cabin passengers, young unmarried ladies of the middle classes, two of them being sisters, on their wuy to join their relatives at St. John, New Brunswick. The vessel was registered for 105>? passengers, but us two children count us one adult, and as a very large proportion were under agethere beiug only about 00 men amongst the passengers ?the survivors of the wreck, who are our informants, think that the total number 01 tneso lu-Tateu emigrant* must have amounted to tho total stated, viz., two hundred aud forty. The ship lost sight of the loom of the land about four o'clock, on Sunday afternoon. Tho breeze, which had been light iu the morning, increased to n gale during the day, and about 11 I1. M., it came in terrific, squalls, accompanied by heavy torrents of rain. They then furled the fore and main sails. The wind which had been westward at first, veered northerly, and the storm inoreased in violence, which blew the two top-sails from the bolt ropes. The crew then set the foresail and spanker, and commenced to bend two other top-SKils, which they furled ; but about three in the morning they were blown from the gaskets. Previous to this the jib had been showed, the larboard tacks on board, and the ship was now driving to tho southward and eastward. The reason of the master not standing to the westward, when the wind became northerly, and where he would have bad ample sua room?was for the purpose of attaining some harbor of refuge where he might repair damages, and replace the sails. Shortly after this, on Monday forenoon, the long boat was unshipped from the chocks by the foroo of the seas, which successively broke over the vessel, and in the course of the same forenoon the bulwarks were stove in. and the life boat washed away. The gale continued with the same violence during the whole of Monday night and Tuesday; aud an indication of the force of the hurricane may be learned from tho fact that on the latter day the mainsail, after being furled, wus torn from the gaskets by the storm blast. While the crew were setting the foresail, it was blown from the holt ropes, and the trysail most was unshipped, and main gaff carried away, which rendered them unable to carry the spanker. During this dreary time, the vessel pitched dreadfully?now on the crest of a mountain wave, and in two seconds afterwards reeling in the tiough of the sea ; the passengers were all below under hatuhes, many of them insensible to external danger from the pains of sea-sickness?but all were not so. Some of them had a fearful presentiment of disaster, and it would be difficult to say whether the parents suffered the greater agony from the cries of their children pent up In the dark and noisome hold, or from the innocent prattle which betrayed no fear or conscieusnesa of the unhappy fate which was so soon to overtake them. Cooking, of course, was out of the question ; but the grown-up people had no heart to^be hungry; and, moreover, the cookod provisions brought from Londonderry were not yet entirely exhausted. About 11 o'clook on Tuesday night, land and a light were seen on the starboard quarter, which Capt. Booth at first took to be the light on the Island of Tory, off the north west ooast of Ireland, and in the belief that he thus had ample sea room in the oourse ho was steering, he bore along. As he drifted near tho land, however, and observed that tho light was a flashing, instead of a stationary one, bo became conscious of bis error and dangerous position, and made every effort to repair it by bringing the ship farther to the northward and westward; and with the view of " clawing" her off the land, the maintopsail and the lbretopmast staysail were set, and the jib half hoisted. The effort, however, was an ineffectual one; the ship soon got amongst the broken water, and at half past 12 on Wednesday morning was dashed amongst the rocks. If the above be a correct version of the impression on the Captain's mind as to his position?and it is distinctly spoken to by the two survivors we have seen?the result shows that he must have been fully a hundred miles out of his reckoning; but perhaps it could not well be otherwise The sun was obscured during all tho time of this brief and disastrous voyage, by black, driving olouds which distilled perpetual rains; the moon was only seen through a heavy haze at fitful intervals, and from these causes, it was impossible that any observation could be taken.? The light seen was lu reality that of Oransa or Oversay, on the point of the Rhinnsor Runs of Islay, to tho northwest of the entrance of Loohindaul; and the land seen, and on which the brig eventually struok. was the western part of the iron-bound coast of tho island. She went ashore with all the sails already mentioned fully distended; and after striking once was dashed broadside on the rocks, whioh rose to the height of the mast-head. She struck violently against the rocks three times, and at the fourth stroke the mainmast went by the board.and fell into a chasm of the rock. An hour and a half prevmusly, when Captain Booth observed his dangerous proximity to the shore, he took his station in the maintop, that he might personally keep a look-out and see how the 1 ind bore, and from this place he occasionally gave his orders to the crew. As soon as the brig struck, John Choat, the mate, nnu ail ine seamen, eignt in nuraner. joinea mo captain in tho maintop, leaving the captain's son, a youth of about 16 years of age. asleep in his cot below. After remaining in the maintop about threo minutes, five of the prow went down for the purpose of ascending the foretop, thinking that they would have a better chance of gaining the shore from that part of the ship. At the sawo time, one of tho crew, named John Scott, went out upon the mainyard with a life-buoy on his person?thus leaving in the maintop, the captain and three seamen, whose names are John Stevous, Wm. Coulthard. and Qeo. Lightford, all belonging to South Shields. We have said that the maintop, along with the wreck of the uiAst, was thrown into a rift or chasm of the rock, and immediately afterwards Coulthard, then Liglitford, and finally Stevens scrambled up the topmast rigging, and obtained a footing on tho crags. As it was pitch dark at this time, the euptain asked the men their names, and when they had informed him, he said it was their duty to assist each other in such a terrible crisis. He was about to follow the men, when a wild wave dashed over their heads us they clung to tho rock, but they wero enabled to maintain their position ; and when they looked round, after tho sea had retired, they found that the captain and all were gone. The mainmast had been broken into splinters by the fourth collision with tho rocks, and this recoiling wave bad not only dragged the ship, but the fragments of tho mast which adhered to her by the rigring, further into the sea, and thus cut off from the dense muss of human beings on board every chance to escape Had the wreck remained in the chasm where it was originally thrown.and from which the three survivors escaped, it might huvo been used as u bridge by the others; but unhappily, this lost posssibility of relief was taken away. The same wave which effected this fearful havoc must also have prevented the five seamen from reaching the foretop, from which they might have bad a chance of escaping. A quarter of an hour elapsed from the time of 41... I.eU 4i-u? ...Ml 4 - mu uu?l mo mioo .UIIIIUH |jui upon the ruck. At the moment she struck, and a little previous to It, about half a dozen of the male passengers wore standing ou the deck, occasionally asking the mate if there was in reality any danger; but as the latter well knew the perils of their positiou from the broken water seen around, he answered them not. Of the threo young ladies who were cabin passengers, one of the sisters had been confined to bed by sea sickness from the moment of leaving Dorry: but at 10 on Tuesday night the other two took their position in the companion-way. and anxiously gazed on sea and sky till their agonising doubts were realised by tin: fearful catastrophe, at half-post 11. They were seen there when the survivors last gated on the deck. The ship was ground and crunched so frightfully amongst the rocks, that she must have broken up almost instantaneously. There was no cry of despairing agony from tlie multitude of Ood's creatures cooped up within the hull of the ill-fated brig; or at isast it was unheard; for the commotion of the elements was so furious that the men on the top could scarcely hear each other at the top of their voices. The great mass of the emigrants, therefore, must have perished In their berths, as the rocks rapidly thumped the bottom out of the vessel; and though there might be one "univcrsalshriek." within a very few minutes "all was hushed, save the wild wind, and the remorseless dash of billows." The three men who had escaped to the rock, so soon ns the ship entirely disappeared, searched anxiously for some outlet by which they might reach the mainland ; but none such could he round, and they finally took shelter in a crevice, which, however, did not shield them from the rain, which fell heavily all night, and here they remained till grey daylight. They then discovered an opening, through which they scrambled to the summit. nnd havinor travelled ahnut a mile then saw una on a waste or muir, near which they lay down ,^ln the hope that, dome person would soon coran to look after them and take them awny. No one came, however, and nftor day bad fairly broken, the men got up from the grass, and amended an elevation near at hand, from which they observed a farm house about half a mile die- , tant. Thither they proceeded, and were moat hospitably nourished, and put to bed. They were thoroughly worn out hy exhaustion, not one of the crew having been In tied from the moment the ship left Perry. They were at the same time nearly naked, from having divested themselves of their heavy clothing when the Kxinoutli struck, and lost part of that which remained when scrambling on the rigging and amongst the rocks. The hospitable farmer?whese name we havo not learned?and others who had been apprised by him, went to , the scene of the catastrophe, but of course too Into to help, and only to gaze on the desolation. Mr. Chiene, I slay s tactor. soon heard of the event, and kindly furnished the men with a passage to Glasgow by the Modern Athens steamer, where, as already stated, they ar- 1 rived on Saturday last. Here they were consigned to 1 the care of Mr. Fildcs, of tne Naval Itendesvous, and as- 1 sistant to Lieut. Forrest, agent for the Shipwrecked ' Mariner's Society, and by him they have been clothed 1 and comfortably boarded in the meantime. They will be fruktd to Newcastle la the ooarao of to-day or tomorrow. On Thursday afUraoon, the latest dot* of oar advices from l*Uy, about twoaty of tho bodies had soma ashore. They were principally females, with one little boy amongst them; and as many of them wero in their night clothes, the probability is that they were thoao who had rushed upon dock at the first alarm caused by the striking of the ship They were fearftally mangled by being dashed amongst the rocks, and being jammed within the crevices, alongst with pieces of the wreck, few of which ?' A *?* i? * ? ?*la Attiaw Imiitua war? tAMft were auove twu icct iu juugvu. ? floating in the surf, but the sea was ?tUl too high to permit any boat venturing out to bring them In. The belief is. however that the great mua of the poor emigrant* went down with the " between deck*" of the ship, and that their bodie* will not be recovered till thi* part of the vessel break* np. The Exmouth had nothing on board but ballast, and the provUious and little atook* of good* f f the emigrant*. She i* the propert/ of Mr. John Eden, of Sonth Shield*, and though old, ia stated, by the survivors, to have been well found in every respect. All the orew and passengers were perfectly sober during thi* fearful time, and the three seamen state that they never saw drink on board at all. The Captain, was in the prime of life, and ha* left a widow and family. All the rest of the seamen were unmarried with the exception of a mau named (Jeorge Kosa, who is amongst those who perished. According to the above estimate, the number who have been thus suddenly called to their account amounts to 31#; but even leaving room for misinformation, or exaggeration, the loss ha* unquestionably been frightful. Whether or not this fearful shipwreck may huve been partly caused by negligvnoe, or incompetence, or unseaworthiness, we cannot say. We have no reason to stute that it is *o; but still the publia voice will demand a searching inquiry. We have only to add that the above narrative ha* been principally made up from the statements of the survivors, StevenB and llightford, whom we have seen sepa- I rately, and their accounts of this most lamentable affair are entirely similar. In addition to the above, we have learned that a brig from New Orleans put into Bowmoro, lelay, during the week in distress, with loss of two men and bulwark* ; and a schooner with the loss of one man. On the Island of Jura, a bark, a brig, and a schooner are on shore. Another Short P(Huge. [From thu Boston Advertiser, May '22.] The last sailing schooner American Belle, Captain Baxter, arrived at this port yesterday from Sligo, whence she Mailed on the 3d instant. Capt. B. state*, that there were no newspapers published there, and tiiat he heard no newH a short time before his departure. Passengers were pressing forward and offering high rates, but many of them were taken sick with dysentery, and other complaints, and wore obliged to leave the vessels and go on shore again. Capt. B. is of opinion that the misery and despair of the inhabitants is little if any short of the highly colored accounts that have reached this country. The American Belle is a large fore and aft schooner, withdrawn for this voyage from the now line of New Vork and Boston packets. She is fitted with gaff topsails, which were not used on the voyage, excepting that tho main topmast and sail were sent aloft a short time before she arrived. Thu Ameriosn Belle does not belie her name, and so moved the admiration of an Irish poet, that ho has commemorated her arrival at Sligo in a ballad, somewhat shorter than Chevy Chase, but scarcely less glowing.

Brooklyn City Intelligence. J Case or Ma. Hotchsiss.?Justice Samuel (J?rriion,^B of Brooklyn, made e preliminary examination, yeater day, In the case of Edwin Bally, I.aferest l.n.'m. and H Ceorge Buchanan, alias Jack Williams, the throe persons who are under arrest, oharged with the violent as- I 1 sault upon, and robbery of. Mr. Alva Hotchkiss, iu Clin- I ton street, Brooklyn, on the night of the 3d inst. Two fl of the prisoners hare been fully committed on the charge of having violently assaulted Mr. YVm. <'. Ben- H nett. on the highway in Williitmsburgh. on the night of the Oth of May Instant. Bally has bnt recently come from Sing Sing, where be has been servings term of two I years, to atone for a robbery committed In one of the streets of our swn city, where he stole a bag of gold from I a lad who was on his way to deposite It for his employer. It will be seen by the examination, that Mr. Hotchkiss I is still lying In a precarious situation. Officers Ste- I phens, of this city, and Stilwell and Folk, of Brooklyn, I deserve great credit for the manner in which they have fl brought this case up thus far. The examinations will show bow their labors are likely to terminate. The first witness sworn was Mr. Stkbsins, of I this city, who testified as foUows Reside in the city of I New No. ? Albion Place; do business at .No. 17 I Nassau street; 1 was in Brooklyn on the night of the 3d I of May instant; I crossed in the ferry tout from New I York at quarter before 10; went down Clinton street; I when opposite Christ Church I found Mr. Hotchkiss, I lying with his head near the fence^and his feet out near | me siuewaia; i uuuocia uiiu >uuu> iuiit or uny leet. Had then returned; I was at first under the impression that he was intoxicated, but i finally concluded to return; I did so,and examined him; I found his hat, a basket of eggs, and a quantity of blood; I then looked for assistance, and soon saw a person on the opposite side of Clinton street, below, apparently having come across the vacant lots on the opposite or eastern side of the street; 1 called the person, and he seemed to quicken his steps; I called to him and told him there was a person badly injured who wanted assistance; he then stopped and 1 requested him to come and assist me ; I waited till he cams up to me and we proceeded together to where the injured person was lying en the sidewalk; I did not know until that time but that the man was intoxicated; I put my head down and discovered that he had not been drinking ; a man then came along leading a little boy, I stopped him and asked him if there was neither watchmen nor police, he said there was neither ?<oii. mon nor police ;~ 1 then said if they would stay with the rnau I would go for assistance ; I went to a house where 1 flaw a light in tile basement. rang at the door itnd waa directed by the lady to Or. Moriarty's houec ; the doctor camo on being called, and Raid the man had been knocked down and probably robbed ; Dr M. had him removed to hlfl house, and on ancertaining by a letter found on hl? person directed to Mr. Alva Hotchkiss. l>r. M. sent to his house, and the Hon and son in law of Mr II. soon returned, and I left. Dr. Jour* M. Moriahtt sworn.?Am a physician, reRiding at the corner of Clinton and Harrieon streets, in this city; I recollect the occasion mentioned by Mr. Stebbins; Mr. S. called me between half-past 10 aud 11, on the night of the 3d inst.; we found Mr. Ilotchkisfl lying upon the sidewalk, and bleeding'profusely from the head; bis skull appeared to be fractured on the left side, near the top of the head; I told Mr. Stebbins he had been knocked down; we could not feel bis pulse, and I told Mr. Stebbins that, if hu would assist me, wo would take him into the kitchen; we carried him in on a litter; on searching his pockets we found a letter, on which was his address, as I supposed; Mr. Stebbins, a man from (lowanus, and a boy were present; there was n? other man there. We then removed Mr. Hotchkiss immediately to his own house; on his person we found some papers, but no money except two or three coppers; there was no watch nor spectacles, nor knife. On the back part of the head there was no fracture, only a scalp wound; the hat was injured; had a semi-lunar incision; should suppose the blow was given by a slung shot; there was another wound on tbo top of the head, which had caused an extensive fracture of the skull; the bones were depressed so as to injure the brain considerably; in my opinion two or three blows had been given, and caused the injury sustained; these blows must have been trlven hv some tutmnn nt.hnr than himself; his person had evidently been robbed; I have attended Mr. Hotchkiss as one ol his physicians since the time alluded to; he has been and is still in a very critical condition; he has not spoken since; ho gives evidence of consciousness by signs. John H. Snydku sworn?Lives at 8ft Sullivan street, New York; was in the employment of Alva Hotohkiss, in New Y ork; knows Mr. it's watoh; has seen and handled it frequently; the watch here shown is the same one which 1 have seen in his possession; Mr. Hotchkiss was in the habit of carrying a pair of spectacles; they were of silver, with round glasses; he wore them constantly at his place of business; 1 saw him have and use them on third of May; ho also had a knife; it was also two bladcd, with a dark bone handle ; I was cutting with it on the day alluded to, and gave it back to him ; I saw him have money on the afternoon of that day; I saw a number of bills; he was giving change to a man; he left his place of business to come to Brooklyn, a little after 0 o'clock; that was later than he usually staid there at night; he then had his watch, spectacles, etc., with him. Llisiia Merriot, sworn ?Has worked for Mr. Hotohkiss, at the corner of Hudson and Charlton streets, New York; knows the watch which Mr. Hotchkiss used to carry; he recognizes it by the joint of the case; witness identities tho watch now present, as the one which MrH. wore. Julia Stevens,29 Mulberry street, swore that she saw Bailey in possession of considerable money on the 7th or 8th of May; Bailey told her that he had cut a mau in Brooklyn at a gaming table; she saw him afterwards breakup and destroy a pair of silver spectacles; this was in tne day time; the glasses in the spectacles were round, the pieces were about the house for some time, and wnen 1 moved ont I throw them away; I throw two pieces away yesterday; (watch shown) I nevor saw that watch, or any other silver watch in possession of either * of the prisoners; I thought it queer that a man should be afraid to go into; the street.tili dark if he had not been doing something. Nancy Pool sworn.?Kdward Bailey admitted to witcess that he had cut a man in Brooklyn, and that tbat was the cause of his not going out in the day time;:ncver saw the watch before; saw the spectacles after they were broken up at 29 Mulberry street, New York. Peter Murray testified?Was in the revenue servico on the 13th; tho prisoner Bailey had formerly been a shipmate of his in the brig Olobe; on the night of the 3d of May, he (Bailey) and the other prisoners now prosent, called at his, (witnesses') boarding house, and desired him to accompany them, and they would show him the fashions; they went up the Bowery, and around through several streets, when the prisoner, Williams, asked him if he would accompany them to Brooklyn; deponent asked him what he wanted to go there lor; Williams replied that he bad an uncle living there, nnd that there were lots of fine girls there; 1 never saw the watch now here before, am certain; did not go to Brooklyn, but left them, and went back to my boarding house. John 8. Folk, Police-officer of Brooklyn, sworn?Arrested the prisoner (Williams.) at Brooklyn, on the Uth inst . or thereabouts ; I found the watcn now present, and identified as the property of Alva Hotchkiss, in his, Williams' vest pocket. John T. Martell, sworn.?Was present at the arrest of Logan and Bailey, at the corner of Mulberry and Cross streets, New York, on Sunday night, the 9th of May ; Bailey had been talking about shipping in tho service : said he was tlreil of tlie shore, and believed he would ship again ; just then officer Stephana appeared, and Baily at once aaid, " I'm a gonerthe women then began to cry, and aa I can never bear to see a woman shed teara, I put out; ' It was family aQairs that agitated me."

Q.?How did you come in possession of that watch? B.?That watch I bought of a stranger, a man on the Battery, on Thursday the 6th of Mny. It was a white man; he appeared like a sailor, but whs dressed in long clothes; I can't say that I ever saw him before, nor havo I seen him since; I think I could identify him if I saw him agaiu; I paid three dollars for the watch. Committed in full. Kijward Bailsv being put on examination, refused to answer any iiueations in the matter, forgets whether ho whs in company with Williams. Logan, and Murray in New V'ork on the 3d of .May last; don't remember whether he was in company with those persons at Julia Stevens' house in Mulberry street on that evening: it is not my intention to answer any questions, consequently it will be useless to ask mo any moro; I know nothing of it This prisoner was also committed in full.
