NEW YORK HERALD. Naw Tark, Ttmradajr, September tf, 184*. Tit* Knfllih Steamer at Vara Crux. As might be expected, the escape of Paredes, our old enemy, into Mexico, has created considerable excitement in every part of the United States, and been freely commented upon by the press. Several ot the public journals we perceive have stated it to be the intention of the government, immediately, to rescind the order by which the British mail steamers have hitherto been rjlowed to enter the port of Vera Cruz. We sincerely hope it is so ; for put what face on the matter they may, they have been guilty of a gross act towards the United States?a poor return for the kindness our government extended to them. We really hope that our government will act decisively in this matter, and if they have not already done s?, that they immediately teach those gentlemen that the United States are not to be trifled with by them or any other nation. There is no question that the captain was acquainted with Paredes, and well knew who he was when lie conveyed him to \ era Cruz. The displaying of signals on her arrival could not liave been done without his sanction?neither could the landing of Paredes be accomplished so perfectly as it was without his co-operation. If our government act promptly in this matter, our British 1 riendsi will learn a lesson that they will not soon forget. Affairs In Ireland?'The K lections and Repeal among tike lrUti. When the repeal of the union between England and Ireland was first agitated by the Agitator, he was pronounced a madman, and till scheme the most ridiculous that ever was broached by an inmate of a lunatic asylum. The English press did not deign to notice it except in termB of contempt, and even by the Irish themselves it was not looked upon as feasible. From year to year, however, by dint of continued agitation in public halls and in the open air, me n's minds were gradually brought to bear upon it, and to compare the advantages and disadvantages th at might accrue from it, until the year of the celebrated monster gatherings, at which it was no uncommon thing to see half a million of men in attendance, when it may be said to have taken a deep root among the people. At first it was confined to Catholics, and was looked upon by the Protestants as an attempt at Catholic ascendency, but one by one a great number of the most popular and influential Protestants gave in their adhesion to it, and the influence of their example carried with it thousands oi those who were first, like their leaders, opposed to it. In that year it assumed so threatening an appearance that Sir Robert Peel felt himself constrained to interfere, although in violation of ' law, to stop it. The celebrated Clontarf meeting was suppressed by proclamation?O'Connell and other leading men were criminally prosecuted and sentenced to confinement, and repeal for a while was smothered, to break out afresh again with renewed vigor and strength. By and by, the repealers were released from their incarceration, and repeal gathered strength hourly. Ther# is no question that the agitation of this subject caused considerable uneasiness to the English ministry, and that they depended to be relieved from it by the death of O'Connell, with whom they hoped the subject would end. It was a dangerous thing to handle?to meddle with it at all would be like adding fuel to a fire. The English press were of the same mind. They, too, considered that it was kept alive by O'Connell's influence alone, and when that influence was no longer felt, that it would die a natural death. Well, O'Connell did die, and what is the result 1 Repeal, instead of being suppressed by the event, is more powerful than ever; although its supporters are split into parties, on questions of minor importance, yet they are all. pledged to the attainment of the same end, and ure gaining ground faster than ever, as we learn by the English papers; the same which formerly looked upon repeal as visionary, and more recently as being likely to end with the life of its originator and agitator. The elections as far as heard from have given them a powerful increase of members in Parliament, and from all we can learn, the decease of O'Connell his not had the slightest effect in stopping the agitation of the question. We publish in another part of to-day's paper an important article on this question.from the London Chroniclt of the 13th of August, acknowledging that repeal is more active than it ever was, and indulging speculations on the best way of "turning men's thoughts from political agitation." We take the following from another English journal, the Londo i Standard:? " The ' repeal' feeling has made more progress in Ireland within the last year than it has in any ten yearn I Hince the commencement of the century, and niade that j prouren* chiefly anouKnt the Protectant gentry. We can assure our Knglish readers tbat men who only two year* ago would hiivi: considered the grave consideration of the subject an nothing lesf th n treason. now canvass it freely as a mere question of expediency, and too generally a* an experiment which there would be no barm In venturing upon. They who have undergone thin change of sentimeot are indeed in err. r, but their error is a natural one. aud it if in Tain to attempt to disabuse their mind* of it. They hare Been the primary interests of ] their country sacrificed to the cupidity of British manufacturers by the free-t.nde measures of lS4ti, and of twenty preceding years They have seen thousands and 1 tens of thousands of their countryman perishing from 1 famine, while Kngland would not permit them to norrow from strangers the means of saving the poor sufferers, and would not herself lend until the niiicbief was over, and would then lend only reiuetantly, and, an to an importunate pauper, lending with a cumbrous apparatus of guardianship that almost swallowed up tho loan j Now, the intelligent Irish gentry feel tbat. If Ireland bad a legislature of her own. she might borrow upon the credit of her revenues to any necessary extent, and borrow from any lender, just as the Canadians are now borrowing money In the United States for the completion of their raiiroHds, and the Irish gentry feel, too, that if there if a real union there ean be no borrowing or lending between the United Kingdom and any of its divisions. because th* treasure of the whole is, In case of necessity. the treasure of eadh part, as the wants of each part are the want* of the whole. Ireland has, however, 1 not only been treated aa an alien state in the question of the loan, but in Parliament and in the press her too modest claim as an alien but friendly state has l>een treated with an insolence of heartleesness and brutality Kufflcient to irrit*te the calmest tempers. It is, than, not unnatural that the Irish gentry begin to think that while a repeal of the Union would Setter tbeir condition in some respeots. it aould hardly make it worse in any. The only bold, indeed, th*t England now has upon Ireland is the Protestant Church Establishment, and the fear of the domination of the Romanist priests; but let not the least danger be threatened to the Church, or the attempt made to connect the Romanist clergy with tho State, and the late Mr. O'Connells vision of a I'arliaIn llrauti u.'.!! Ka.a.ll^ .iika full A/vnun? nay, the zealous co operation of H9 of 100 of the rrotestant (fentry and yeomanry of Ireland.11 We have long known that repeal was making rapid progress among the Irish people, but it is clear that the English papers and people do not regard it as they did a few years since, as a mere chimera. The fact is, the union between those countries was one in name and not in fact. , When ita repeal was agitated many kept aloot | from it, who are now its strongest friends. The | whole nation are nearly unanimous for an inde- i pendent Parliament of their own. When a nation bccomes unanimous lor a ?liange, it will certainly obtain it. Such is now 1 the condition of Ireland, and the Krtglish are aware of it Ireland will, before long, act a conspicuous part on the world's stage.

K< Horticultural Exhibition.?The American Agricultural Association have now on exhibi- ( tion a rare collection of fruits, flowers, &c., at the Lyceum in Broadway, to which we direct the attention of the public. T* They will see there rare and beautiful plants, flowers and garden vegetables, such as are indi- Wc genous as well as many that have been trans- ^ planted from almost every country under the sun. tab We have no doubt that the patronage extended ^ to the exhibition will be as liberal aa that which ittended the former exhibitions, and such as will encourage the members of the association wh to continue their efforts for the future. These exhibitions are novel in New York, al- dei though not in the United States; for Boston, ooi Philadelphia, and other cities, have them ing innually; and it remains with the public to Jecide whether they are willing that they should ?pj be repealed. We are well enough acquainted *? with the people of New York to justify us in say- 1 ing, that in taste for all that is beautiful and re- of fitted they are not deficient, but possess it as 0 much as those of Boston, or any other city in p<) the world, and that it is only necessary to direct h(J them to where they can enjoy it. _j, The importance of these exhibitions cannot be Fa overrated. They excite a spirit of competition that cannot fail of producing beneficial effects. w? They excite inquiry, research, and experiment, the results of which are felt by every one. tt* The present exhibition, which, by the way, will not last longer than to-day, contains the im- wt provements that have been made in horticulture k* for the past year, and each of the exhibitors has 0h entered the field with the full expectation of carrying off the palm in hie line. Competent judges *e have been appointed to decide on the merits of *t their respective productions; but it is to the decision of the visiters that they ultimately look sti for a return for their time, labor, and expense. M bu Intsrcoi kpe with China.?The splendid new ^ ship Samuel Russell, having her full complement Ti< of passengers, and all other arrangements completed, leaves this morning on her first voyage to ^ China.

No gesticulation, no foroe of motion, no >wer of voice can make up for a want of corot emphasis and agreeable articulation. To make a Mago indicate earnestness, it is not necessary to howl in the ear of the person addressed, while the eye ?tor?a id the fingers clench the palm, to swell by an unnatu1 effort the veins of tbe neck and free; neither to make line impresplve. is It necessary to prolong tbe final und of each word beyond all harmonious or judicious agth. Nor is it agreeable to many hearers to liaten to e hurried reading of a measure, where words are >uied forth in such .julok suocesplon fr, m the throat id mouth, that each oue seems to tumble over its preceshor in its heat to escape. Any of these pec uliari:n may be admissablo once In a while.

In the early part of thu day we had a long and heavy shower of rain, which continued up to

2 o'clock. The streets were " a* usual" during rainy days, extremely filthy and disagreeable. The lit le street . sweepers were busily engaged in sweeping the cross-ways, . The thermometer stood at 1'2 o'clock, M., in Wall street, ? at 70 degrees. At the same hour it stood at the Northern Hotel, foot of Courtlandt street, at 71 degrees. New Catholic Church.?Bishop Hughes, yesterday uti evening, at 6 o'clock, laid the foundation stone of a new no Get man Catholio Church, to be built at the oornar of wa Thompson and Canal st*. A vast concourse of person* of all periuasions were present on the occasion. After i laying the foundation stone in his full pontificals, at- th< tended by several of the Catholio clergy, a hymn was an c haunted by a full and effective ckoir, after whlon we Bishop H. delivered a brief but impressive disoourse, ex- yo planatory of the entire ceremony, in the oourse of which Bu< he impressed upon his uudltory thn propriety of man not i devoting himself entirely to the goods of this life. He had bai higher and more solemn responsibilities, and owed a duty to his (iod, which he was bound to disoharge for ra? the sake of saving his own soul. Man was but the hu- HUi man agent upon the earth for the soul; and if it aDI iverc not so, the soul needed no agency to work out its on salvation. Alter briefly explaining the object and na- ch ture of the entire ceremony, Bishop H. conoluded by q0 itating he was about to give way, in order to enable the 0i0 (Jerrnan pastor of the congregation, who were about if ereoting the church, to addrms them, and then retired, to 1'he reverend pastor of the congregation Hereupon came 0f forward and delivered a long address in his native tongue j,u with apparent eloquence and effect, and which seemed to deeply interest his congregation, in the course of the 0f delivery a large collection was taken up to defray the ex- |(, penses, Sto. At the conclusion, the entire formed into , U1 procession, Bishop Hughes leading, accompanied by his clergy and headed by an excellent band. The St. Jo nan _ nes Verlen Society followed, mmI were succeeded by the St. Joseph's Society, bearing a banner with appropriate aE emblems. The whole movud up Canal street towards r?| Broadway and the Cathedral, after which they dispersed. st, The plot of ground where the ohurch is to be erected is m large and spacious, and it would bo doing injustice to the many dissenters, See., who were present not to notice pa their orderly demeanor during the performance of the entire ceremony. The liberal and truly Catholio spirit ?o in whioh Bishop Hughes addressed the vast concourse w) present?dressed in his full pontificals?must have had ,,t, its proper effect upon the many present who dissented from his church.
