The intelligence from Europe, the description of die celebration yesterday, and the proceedings of the Episcopal Convention, compel us to iasue another supplement this morning. It will contain the continuation of the caae of Mr. and Mr?. Lyndr ; an Interesting artiele relative to Dempster, the vocalist; the Scouting Expeditions of the Texas Rangers ; an account of a revolver for Major Polk ; a let*r from Boston ; Sporting Intelligence ; Law Intelligence ; Police Intelligence ; Brooklyn Intelligence ; miscellaneous items; and several columns of advertisements, which are well worth reading. The supplement is served free to city subscribers. 1 lM Vptacwpal Convention. We have in type a full report of the proceedings of this body yesterday; bur, notwithstanding that we issue * supplement to our regular edition of the Htra'd this morning, the great influx of foreign new#, the report ot the laying of the comer stone of the Washington Monum-m.Jtc . M ,Ma . precludes its insertion in our columns to-day. It will positively appear tomorrow. B??i from Rurope?Continuation of the Cool. mercUU (Umlllwu.Pr?|TM of the Panic. By the arrival of the steamship Cambria, at, Boston, from Liverpool, we have sixteen days later intelligence from all parts of Europe. The news is exceedingly important and interesting, and in a commercial point of view rather of an unfavorable character. So far as W" can judge from the telegraphic despatcnes received trom Boston, there has been no material alteration in the markets. Indian corn has slightly advanced, and an active demand existed just previous to the departure of the steamer. This, in the face of the embarrassments in the London money market, and the numerous failures in the principal markets of England, is indicative of a permanent improvement in prices, and an active demand. We hardly expected such a movement at this early day, after all that has been reported relative to the harvests of k'tipland. Accounts from this country, regarding supplies likely to go forward, have had a very material influence upon prices for breadstuffa in British markets, but the reports which have recently besn made here, relative to reduced receipts and advancing rates must have a favorable effect upon prices in Europe. It appears by advices received by the Cambria, that for some time previous to her departure, the receipts of breadstuff's from the United States had been exceedingly large; this wilPsoon cease; recent shipments from this side have been limited, and our next account from Europe, will tell a different story about this matter. Whatever anticipations have been formed in England, relative to full supplies of breadstuft's from the United States during the winter, they are doomed to disappointment. We shall want nearly every barrel of flour and bushel of grain for our own consumption, that we shall receive from this time to the opening of navigation in the spring. This country is full of produce; the Western States are literally running over; but we cannot get at it; the farmers are holding on to their crops for better prices, and in a few weeks the cold weather will put a veto upon all further transportation from the interior. In the event of the destruction of the potato crop iu Europe being more extensive than anticipated, the demand for Indian corn must be large. That there are many who fear such a result in England, is pretty clearly demonstrated by the improvement in quotations for corn, and the upward tendency of prices of breadstuff* generally at the latest hour on the 5th inst. The annexed quotations show the comparative position of nrirea on the riav nf diMiartnrp nf (lie lust two steamers from Liverpool:? Qcotatiojh roa B*e*DiTtrr? in LiviarooL.

This gives some hope for favorable accounts by the next steamer, and those interested will look for her arrival with the most intense anxiety. The Liverpool cotton market continued very much depressed, and very little hope was entertained of any immediate improvement. In view of the condition of the manufacturing classes in Great Britain, we could hardly have expected anythiug diff-rent. It is fortunate for the planters thai the last crop was short, and the one now coming to market is likely to be below an average. It would be well for holders of this staple on this side, to'abandon all hope of any immediate advance in Jprices, and make up their minds to hold on, if possible, for better times. We must encourage our own manufactures in every way, and make up, by our own industry, the deficiency caused by the embarassments and difficulties under which the manufacurers ol Great Britain are laboring. The number ol failures in Great Britain for the fortnight previous to the sailing of the Cambria was large, and the amount of liabilities greater than those of the same number of houses reported by any previous arrival.

In this particular we are exceedingly fortunate, and can look upon the destruction going on so rapidly in Europe with much more indifference than we otherwise cou.d. With our usual enterprise we shall turn the ruin which has overtaken so many concerns in England, to a good account; step in and secure the trade they have been compelled to abandon, and make it a profitable source of publie and private revenue. The commercial classes of Great Britain must be in a horrible condition. It is astounding what a number of concerns, which have for years been doing an immense business, have been able to sustain their credit and keep above board, when they have been complete shells ; their substance all gone, and even worse?bankrupt for immense amounts. The crisis recently realized in the money markets of Europe, has developed facts ; that may well startle the commercial world. We cannot conceive of a more rotten system of credits, than that which existed f , I in Fogiand lor ? i?ag t.me prerictu to tbe r< cent explofion. The failure of Harmon It Co., some six months since, alarmed many ; but that house wsa not alone; at that time there were hundreds of other houses,standing equally high, resting upon a volcano ot equal magnitude, which baa ' eince burst upon the world with equal effect. , There is, without much doubt, many more left of the some sort, but they cannot stand long the | difficulties which must be pressing so heavily upon them; there must be a clean sweep of theae i insolvent concerns from existence, and the commercial world will be vastly benefitted by it; trade will hereafter be more healthy; credits eatablished upon a sounder basis, aud a more legitimate course be pursued by all engaged in j commercial pursuits. I It is fortunate for this country that these fail, ures occurred at this time; they could not have | taken place at a period when we should have been in a more favorable position. It enables us to j guard against those difficulties which would have been experienced, had our principal exporting season been further advanced, and gives us the power of establishing a system of credits of our own, that will save us against future losses, and place us more independent of Great Britain, and Europe generally, than we have ever yet beer. Brother Jonathan and John Bull will soon change places. Jonathan has been a very dutiful boy, but he cannot be kept in leading strings any longer. We shall see sights, in a few years, that will make the whole of Europe tremble. Akkival of tvk Soutmrnxr?-This fin* steamer arrived this morning from Charleston. She left that port on Saturday last.

The steamship Cambria, Captain Judkins, ar rived at Boston ai eight o'clock yesterday morning. Sne left Liverpool on the 5th inst.

Liverpool, Oct. 5, 1847, 12 M. j tu corn market. Best Western canal flour from 26s. to 26s. 6d. j per barrel; Richmond and Alexandria, 25s. to 25s. 6d.; Philadelphia and Baltimore, 25s. to 25s. 6d.; New Orleans and Ohio, 22s. to 24s.; j Canadian, 25s. to 26s.; sour,19s. to 21s.; white and mixed wheal, 7s. to 8s. per 70 lbs.; red, 6s. 3d. to 7s. 6d.

The belief entertained at the departure of the . | Idst steamer that the upward tendency then indi- I , cated in this market would be maintained, haa, ' j by the terrific occurrence* of the past fortnight, been wholly dispelled, from a number of causes; i 1 the most startling of which is the unparalleled , derangement of the money market. The price j of breadstutfs has gradually, but steadily, re- 1 trograded?the only article which has preserv- i 1 ed its firmness being Indian corn. A slackened demand has, of course, materially contributed to I this result, but this cause must be regarded as merely temporary. At the London Corn Exchange yesterday, the arrivals of English grain were small, owing to which, and the unusually lar*e attendanoe of purchasers, the demand was ssinewhat active at an advance of from two shillings per quarter upon the previous Monday's quotations. Notwithstanding the large supplies again ^brought forward, an average amouut of business was done, and the market closed firmly. 1 THK COTTON MARKET. New Orleans ordinary to middling 5d a 5jd , per lb.; fair to good fair 6jj a 6.j; good to fine 7j < to 8^; Mobile ordinary to middling 5 to 54; fair , to good fair 6|d; bowed Georgia ordinary to middling 5 to 5jd; fair to good fair 6} to 64, and j fair 6J to 6|; Sea Island ordinary to middling 9d J to 10J; iair to-good fair llfc to 14; good to fair 15 to 18; stained ranges from 6 to 84. The prices of cotton since our last advices have, it will be | 1 observed, seriously receded; a circumstance iudisputably resulting from the aggravated condi- I tion of the money market, and the consequent improbability, save in the rarest instances, of : obtaining accommodation. The universal panic which has seized upon ! 1 He manufacturers, and the total extinction of j every thing like speculative effort in the lower iiualities, particularly the decline, is more se- i vcrely felt, and operations, since the arrival of | the Caledonia, have been of the most limited 1 character. The salea for the week, ending the , 1st instant, were about 21,000 bales; of which 800 only were on speculation, and 2000 for ex- < port. On Saturday, the 2d instant, the Bales were about 3000, and yesterday 4000 were disposed of, all the consumers' speculation being entirely suspended', and the demand being disproportioned to the supply.

FINANCIAL AFFAIRS. The fearful condition of mercantile and monetary affairs recorded in our last summary, and then ^rapidly culminating to a point of distress and derangement rarely reached by the organs of commercial vision, has within the last fortnight become vividly developed in all its disastrous reality. One after another, has failure followed npon failure, each one vibrating i throughout every avenue of trade and industry | in its gloomy consequences, affecting those who I but for their unfortunate connexion with the ' defaulter could have withstood the shock of the commercial storm. Of the numerous causes to which this dreary ! statu of things is assignable, the most palpable appears to be the misregulation of the money j power, a system originating with the Bank of England, and eagerly imitated by all other money , lenders, whereby gold has become too dear to ; buy, and accommodation a phantom. The reflex 1 of a system so fatal to the prosperity of trade has been deeply felt, alike by the merchant and manufacturer, and the attestations of its conse- j quences can be found in harrowing abundance I iu ih' crippled equating* house ?u>i the <i?b<-.n*d factory. The failures during thr past fortnight may be enumerated as follows :? Cockerell k Co., London, ?60,000. Perkins, Schleisserfe Mullens,|?260,000. Fry, Griffiths k Co.; amount oi liabilities not ascertained. Lyall Brothers k Co., ?400,000. Samuel Phillips k Co., ?160,000. Cockburn k Co., M. L. BensusanSc Co., Alex. McDonald & Co., and Jno. Shewell k Co., all of London, whose liabilities also have not been ascertained accurately. In Manchester the failures and stoppages are, Burts, Watson k Co., Alfred Armstrong, James Guest k Co., Stocks k Tait, Edward Potter k Co., Render k Milner, and K. M. Broadhurst. In Liverpool we have to notice the suspension of W- Steel k Co., Lake, Calron k Co., J. k M. Miiovotr W rn Ath*rtnn W a farm 1trnth#?ru Ar Co , W. & J. Tomlinson, and E. & P. Parry, whose liabilities are estimated at upwards of a million sterling. Six or seven houses in Glasgow, including the firm ot Reid, Robertson k Co., have yielded to the pressure, the last named of which chiefly falls on Manchester. An earlier failure, omitted to be noticed, is that of Allison, Comberlege & Co., whose liabilities reach ?600,000 ; and we have also to add the suspension of E. M. Ceoper & Co., and H. H. Glover. During the whole of the past week the Engliah funda underwent a remarkable fluctuation. Thursday waa one of the heaviest days that had been experienced. On Friday it was announced that the Bank of England would, for the present, discontinue altogether its advances on stock and exchequer bills, the rate of which had the day before been raised from 5 to per cent. An intimation was also given, that the rate of discount for first class paper would henceforth be 6i per cent, for bills not having more than fifteen days to run; 6 per cent for bills not over two months date, and 6| for all beyond that period. A decline was the immediate consequence, and the market closed heavily. On Saturday, considerable anxiety was manifested, which gradually wore away towards the close; no failure of any importance being announced. To 2 'clock yesterday matters had been in a very uneasy state. For money, censols commenced at 84(, after which sales were effected at 834 for account; the highest price after opening was 85J, and subsequently 84j. Foreign securities had diminished in value, and a very small amount of business had been transacted. GENERAL INTRLLIQKNCK.

Parliament will be convened on the 14th inst., but not for the despatch of business. The Macedonian frigate, Com. De Kay, was very near being lost off the coast of Scotland on the 14th September. She escaped with loss of ib, fore-topmast, staysail, fore-topsail, and other sails, and with great difficulty reached an anchorage under Arran Island. Subsequent accounts announce her perfect safety. Doctor Wiseman nas arrived from Rome, charged with private despatches for Lord John liussell. The doctor has been permitted to assume the title of Archbishop of Westminster, which is regarded a* the prelude to the establishment of Roman Catholic hierarchy in Kngland. A desperate conflict has taken place in the Malay seas, between H. M. ship Nemises, and ;leven piratical, prahns, in which the latter were defeated with the loss of 300 in killed and wounded. The loss on the part of the British was three men killed, and five wounded. The news by the overland mail from India, ust received, is generally unimportant. Trade was firm at Calcutta, but Hong Kong was altogether at a stand still. Ihere had been some slight disturbances at U&nton, but they were suppressed by the English authorities. Asiatic chplera is making fearful ravages in Uussia, and in consequence of its appearanceiat Warsaw, the Emperor had deterred run visit to Poland?a circumstance not to be regretted by the people of that country. Active preparations are I making in Switzerland ior suppressing the Sunderbon by force of arms. A sanguinary civil war is apprehended from the resolution ?f the latter to resist the Diet. Two cantons alone are prepared with forty thousand men to take the field. Tne news from Italy presents no new feature. The Pope is firm, and the Austrians do not deem inclined to provoke hostilities. The ati'aira of Spain are atill very unsettled. Catalonia continued to be disturbed by the Carlist baads, and the entire line ot the Pyrenees is in a state of blockade. The abstractjof a commercial treaty between Spain and England has been published, but the terms are rejected by th? British government. France is not yet tranquil. Considerable clamor has been raised by the appointment of the Due d'Aumale to the Governor-Generalship ot Algeria. fn Ireland, a strong opposition is made to the p-iymentiof rent andpoor rates, and there appears to be a general movement in favor of the tenantright measure. Father Matthew has declared his intention of visiting the United States early in the ent>uing spring. The reported marriage of the Duke of Wellington and Miss Coutts is contradicted. Miss ('outts, it is stated, amongst her other acts ot munificence and somewhat eccentric benevolence, is founding an asylum tor convicted and punished lelons, who have been thro>vn outcasts un the world. It is announced by the Belfast Northern Whig tnat the Amacos, Capt. Owen, has arrived there, I ...Ian until OfiArt Ko rrpl a r%f flniir ch i nn#?H hv th#? Society of Friends at Philadelphia, tor the use of the destitute Irish. Oct. 5, 2 o'clock, P. M. The corn market displayed considerable, though unlooked lor, activity; and prices, upjto this moment, have a decided tendency to asceud. Some purchases of Western Hour have already been made at 2Hs. per barrel. Wheat is also linn, and Indian com was in demand at an advance. The cotton transactions of this morning are of the most languid character?in short, witnout the slightest disposition to a reaction. The respectable house ol Wm.

BERNG, ROME, AND CONSTANTINOPLE, TO THE NEW YORK HERALD. 4e. die. die The French mail steam ship Missouri, Capt Morin, arrived early yesterday morning from Cherbourg, France, whence she sailed on the 1st instant. Tne intelligence by her ia eleven days later than that previously received. It is very interesting to the commercial community. There have b?en several more extensive failures in England. Among the number we notice the name of Cockerell k Co. for a very large sum. The most painful intelligence by this steamer is the death of the Hon. Alexander H. Everett, the American Commissioner to Chin a. He died in Canton on the 29th of June. He had only arrived in that city a few days, with his family 1'h.iiuud, iu mivc |>ua?cBBiuu ui a new nouae. There i9 little or no news from Portugal. Our last arrivals from Italy bring no news ot importance, though they make known the cause of the riot which recently took place at Bologna. The commotion, it appears, arose out of the nomination of the officers of the National Guard. Marshal Soult has been nominated MarshalGeneral of France. The Fomtnto of Barcelona, of the 19th, pretends that negotiations for a commercial treaty between Spain and England are so far advanced that the draft of a treaty has been drawn up. It has been aanounced that many of the Russian foreign diplomatists have been called to St. Petersburg. We now learn that the Prince of Prussia will also proceed to that capital immediately on his return from the Rhine. This warrant! a belief that some affairs of importance are about to be diecuused at St. Petersburg. Almost whatever interest attaches to the contents of the Overland Mail just arrived, with dates from China to the 29th of July, belongs to the intelligence from beyond the Straits of Malacca. In China everything appearB to be assuming an unsatisfactory aspect. Sir John Davis obviously understands neither whit is due to Great Britain nor to China, but persists in a course which we know not how to designate with courtesy. The Madrid journals of the 23d, are received. The semi-official journal the Correo, referring to some observations made by the progreti$ta journals on the stay of General Narvaez at Madrid, says that his non-return to Paris must in nowise be considered as showing a want of loyalty and obedience to her Majesty. Madame Albert&zzi, the favorite vocalist, died at her residence in St. John's Wood, aged 85. tier health, which had been declining for a long lime, ended in a rapid consumption.
