NEW Y0RKJ1ERALD N'?iw York, Wcxtriradmr, DMcmbet 1, 1M7. To Correspondents. So notice can be taken ot anonymout communication!

TLe public meeting held here on Monday eve n'.r.g, :o sympathise with the Pope, was probabl] o' ^ of the largest and most important meeting! '..Inch lias been held for years in this metropolis - idiiy results havo been calculated to flow fron t.ii< mm ; but it would not surprise thos< who nre well acquainted with Italy, to see it eiic in the death of his Holiness, either by assassinaion or by poison. This is not a fanciful prophecy, and will be easily understood by those who are acquainted with Italy and the policy of European powers. Let ua explain. The meeting held at the Tabernacle was well got Ui>. The first error committed, in giving to it the character of a clique, waa remedied by incluuiug among ns promoters all classes and all sects iu the.city. The chief magistrate of New 5for!i was, very properly, the chairman. The Icttrra received from distinguished statesmen of the republic, beginning with ex-President Van Buren, and including senators, members of Congress, aud other distinguished men, will five it a character of much greater importance among the statesmen and the cabinets of Europe, than any one on this side of the Atlantic could uupaos?. The address was very well coaceived, or.d very properlyjwritten. The resolutions, also, were good, und the speeches were full of patriot- I ism, sympathy, noble sentiments, and devotion '<j popular rights and democracy, in the strongest degree. All those sentiments and opinions coining from the greatest city in this country, sanctioned by some of the greatest statesmen and patriots, and approved by the whole press, are calculated to produce a more extraordinary effect on the despotic and monarchical cabinets of Europe, than any one in this country can probably imagine, who may not have travelled in Europe. But this is not all. When we take the commencement of this movement in favor of Italy and the Pope for it is yet but a commencement ?iu connection with the recent onquests in Mexico, and with the demonstrations made in fuvor of the annexation of Cuba, and the probable revolution inrthe West Indies, for the purpose of driving away every vestige of European power irom mm comment; wnen we take all these things into consideration, as they will be in the minds of European statesmen, it may well be asked, what conclusion will be formed by those Cabinets of Europe who are alarmed and a-tounded at the progress of our arms in Mexico 1 Li Europe, we may.say In the whole of France. Germany and Italy, the position of the United State* and the purposes of our government and people are entirely exaggerated. It is an absolute fact, that American travellers in Italy, meeting with Italians attached to the popular side, invariably ask whether, in the event of a collision with Austria, the United Stales would not take sides with the popular cause, and send a navy and an army to assist in throwing off the shackles of despotism. The meeting held in this city, the resolutions passed, the sentiments promulgated, will be taken as a complete nud perfect demonstration of the disposition of the United States to send an army and a navy to assist Italy in recovering her freedom. This construction will also be encouraged by the potentates ufEurope, in order to accomplish their own purposes against the movements of His Holiness. \\> may rest assured, therefore, that the ministers of every foreign power, resident in this c uaiiy, will take particular pains to transmit to their several governments the proceedings of this great meeting in New York, with the con ?htt the effect on the minds of some of the leading powers of Europe, will be anything but friendly or encouraging to his Holiness. The nuterluld furnished in this way by this country will be used most effectually to dtfach Tuscany, Sardinia, and the other Italian States, from him, ai?~ us ;u> r jcouragement to some of them to oppo.e him; and it would not ut all surprise us, if the i.ssuc of the w'aole matter were some successful attempt, either with the stiletto, or with poison, .gainst the life of the ^ood Pontiff. At all events, the courtd of France and England, findng ilie extreme sympathy of the American people in the cause of his Holiness, will be more liirposed to withdraw their sympathy from him than to persist in their former conduct. ine position of this country in regard to Mex.co, the demonstration made by the press in this country in regard to Cuba and the West Indies, all itikf n together, are calculated to be used by the agents and minister* of the European powers in the way we have pointed out, and perhaps tc endanger the personal safety of his Holiness, We hope and trust it may not be so; but we cannot resist the conclusion that the danger resulting from these proceedings, contemplated in this view, is much greater than any one is aware of, who may be comparatively ignorant of the influence of American movements on the cabinets of Europe. Annexation of Mexico.?Under the present temporary possession of Mexico, we think there is every chance of occupying that country permanently, and of civilizing the people, into the bargain. There is no government there. We can't make a treaty with a country without a government. We will be compelled to hold on ; forced to nend an army of occupation there, consisting of volunteers, enlisted for six months or a year. Every six months, some twenty or thirty thousand Americans, fresh, hearty and bucksome fellows, will go tOjthat country;Xnnd when the period of their enlistment is expired, instead oi returning,they will become annexed to theMexi Can ladies, and there they will remain, Ameri canize me rrpunnc, ana in me course 01 a lew years, Mexico will be so much changed as to pre sent the same appearances as Texas and Loui eiana do now. Wc can send fifty thousand lresl American troops there every six months. None of them will return. They will all he Bwallowec up by the trnorita??they will all be annexed Their place* will be supplied by emigrants fron; the old world; and thus the movement will gc on, so that there will be no end to it. Great Meetino ih favor of Hekry Clay ? We uuderatand that a great public meeting will positively be held before long, in favor of Mr Clay for the Presidency, at the Tabernacle. Probably it will take place next week. Oreat preparations are making, speeches are arranging, and ? demonstration will be made calculated to product similar meetings all over the United States.? The friends of Mr. Clay are determined tc place him before the people, distinctly, in ordei that he may receive justice, us tliey call it.? What are the friends of Scott and Taylor doing Eistinouisked Travel ers.?A number of dm tinguifhed public men are now every day |>asF iag tlnough this city, rn route for Washingtoi and elaewhcre.

ClaV* Opinio."* or |Nkwspa]>sb Rironr? ixo.-Wf have received and given to the world = the opinion of that great statesman, Mr. Clay, of ? Kentucky, upon the war with Mexico, and the present position of the United States towards that republic. This opinion was received wiih I great approbation by a certain class of persons; but it was generally thought, by another and probably the greater por'ion of the public, to be a little behind the age. We have now received from Kentucky a n^w development from Mr. Cluy, upon another aubf ject, and that is, upon newspapers and newspa4 per reporting. The following is his tirat bulletin upon this topic:? Ashland,*i2d Nov., 1S47. Mr ()? ik Fib?Notwithstanding the public expres" sion of my wish, on tha lata occasion of my addressing | au auemblage of my frllow oitiseos at Lexington, that no report should be mads by others of what I might say, s I intended to report myself, I regret that a meagre, and. io some respects inaoourate, sketch ?f my speeoh baa found Its way Into tbs newspapers. This sketch will go the ronnd of the pa pa ft, en4 realise some of the very mlsohlef whloh I desired to avoid. It was my anxloos wish that the North Jfntrican should have bean the first paper to present It to the eastern pubile. That 1 thought it entitled to, from its iooation, from its deservedly high character as a leading whig journal, and from the fact that you oame to Lexiogton from Phlladelohla to reoort the aoeeeh. but declined. In consequence of my earne?t entreaty. With great respect, I am your fri*nd and ob't scrv't, H. CLAY. Morton McMicmikl, Ksq. Thin, indeed, appears to be a rather obscure and meagre development of hia opinion?a telegraphic report, we suppose ; but that which is lacking in this development, will be found more clearly expressed ia the following extract from Mr. Clay's confidential organ, published at Louisville, namely, the Journal, of that city When Mr. Clay roes to make hi* great speeoh, at Lexington. he law before him eev*ral reporters from distant cities, prepared to take not** of his speech. Thereupon he annonnoed that it was bis particular wish not to b* reported. He said be bad* been so often misrepresented, that it was his earnest d?sire, especially as the speech be was about to make would probably b* the last on* of his life, to put his own nam* to whatever opinions hs might express. 80 strong were his feelings on this point, that I he annonnoed his determination not to proo**d with his remarks until h* should have assurances that he wonld not b* reported. The reporters at onoe threw asld* their p*ns, and all seemed to acquiesce la the v*n*rabl* and distinguished statesman's request. All ssemcd to acquletce In his request, and all did acquiesce in it exeept the reporter of th? AVio York Htrald. He stationed himself on the outsld* of ths market-house, took notes by stealth, wrote out what purported to be a oopr of the speech, and sent it to his employer in New York by telegraph. It was a disreputable and vile proceeding. It was soarcely hatter than theft. Indeed, it wss theft. If the orowd had known what was going on, thsy would have indicted personal chastissment upon the offender.?Louiivillt Journal. This ia quite clear, certainly. The editor of the Journal, when he wrote the above article, must have known, perfectly well, the private sentiments ot JMr. olay; and no doubt can exist but that he reports them accurately. Now, on this Bubject of newspaper reporting, we beg leave to take issue,with the Hon. Henry Clay, of Kentucky, before the people of every part of the civilized world?wherever a free and independent press exists. When Mr. Clay gets up in a public meeting, and makes a public speech, upon public matters, he and his speech are public property. His speech belongs, of right, to a free press, and he has no right or title to interpose obstacles upon this great organ of civilization; nor has he any right to pretend to silence its columns, in any particular, by the establishment of an especial censorship on his own behalf. The plea which he puts forth,of a meagre or an inaccurate report of his speech, is mere subterfuge. We have been for years before the world, and the people know the superiority of our reports. The reporters of this journal give better and more accurate reports of what a public speaker utters, than the individual who speaks can do torhimselt. Even with all the obstacles thrown in the way of our reporter, at Lexington, we venture to say that that sketch of Mr. Clay's speech, transmitted to ub by telegraph, and published the next day in our columns, was as accurate as the report made afterwards by Mr. Clay himself, with the single exception of the passage relating to the Bay of . San Francisco. But even, considering the obstructions thrown in the way of our reporter by Mr. Clay, it was a wonder that so much accuracy was attained. And so all have considered it. The indirect threat fulminated by the organ of Mr. Clay, of an intention, or wish, to interfere violently with the honest liberty ol our reporter, either by a personal attack, or by exciting and creating a riot, in which he should be ? victim, is a melancholy specimen of the degree of . civilization to which some individuals have arrived, even at this advanced age of the world. It is the same sort of brutal feeling as that which is fabled of ancient Greece, to have 1 been indicted upon Prometheus, who was /tViai n?<1 t a a rnnL- u/itli vti1tnv? /I irs>n *! m ** Inn IIIUU1V.U IW ? iwvnj ? ? unuiv Ut ?UUI 1 Ug Ull 1 vitals, because he was guilty of matting, in hia day, a report, or, as it was called, ateuling fire 1 from heaven. No doubt Prometheus was in the situation of the reporters of the newspaper press of the present day, or something similar. ' It is the same spirit, and the same feeling, ' which inflicted upon Galileo the punishment of imprisonment for daring to assert that the earth 1 moved round the sun, and not the sun round the ' earth. Mr. Clay has no right to interfere with the liberty of the press; and if he had given proper facilities to our reporters, he would have had no cause to complain of a meagre or incorrect report. ' Hut the whole afTair shows too plainly that even Mr. Clay, with his greut mind, is far be1 hind the spirit of the present age; and if so, what is lo be expected from his little followers, who are ready to support him through thick and thin, in carrying out such brutal principles?in making silly threats and uttering ridiculous fulminations ! Instead of threats of violence for the enterprise, skill, and brilliant effort made in procuring this speech, to be read in New York city the next day after its delivery in Lexington, Mr. Clay ought to shower down thanks and compliments upon us ; and he would do so, il he had the same high, chivalrous, magnanimous feeling which inspired him in his younger days. Tn* nkwsrapeu Express from New Orleans.?In reference to the daily newspaper express recently established between this city and New Orleans by the journals of New York, it is generally stated to be the first of the kind. This is not correct. Three or four years ago we had 1 in operation during a whole winter, a daily | express from New Orleans, entirely on our own hook.

The Jsuivoratj bate not tbsir n<mU?*tl<>ii [ Col VuubMUr OmIUM Thi Opbka Excitement and Fashiomabl* Lira.?The excitement whioh haa been created in the fashionable society of New York, by the opening of the Aator Place Opera House, is not 1 confined to thia city, or to any exclusive I o'ass of society. The opening seems to be look* ed on as a great event all over the country, and ' the talk, and conversation, and excitement which , it has produced, seem to pervade far beyond the ! limits of New York. In fact, the attempt to establish a regular and permanent Italian opera in thia city, and not merely to be satisfied with a few wandering stars or constellations, is looked on as an advancement and progress of refinement in civilization, among the higher classes at leapt, if not of wit and sarcasm among the lower ones. As a curious specimen of the sensation which the opening of the new opera haa produced, we have given, in another part of thia journal, a selection from nearly a dozen newspapers,conducted by the first writers, both in poetry and prose, of the country, expressing their opinions with great freedom, and some of them, with much grase and equal wit and sarcasm, on this new developement of fashionable society and refined taste in New York. The names of these distinguished gentlemen, and literary men, who are l.. ?j:. r.i .* -.1 >"<- tuuuinui mo iicwb|)u|i?ib in question, win ui once arrest attention to the notices they give.? We may enumerate among them, Win. C. Bryant, Nathaniel P. Willis, Geo. P. Morris, Mordecai M. Noah, Henry (?. Watson, P. Burkhardt, Shadrecu West, Robert Burns?the latter, for any thing we know to the contrary, a lineal descendant of the immortal bard of Scotland?be-" sides others, who, as the auctioneers down town say, are too tedious to mention. We only give brief and choice extracts from the journals under the management of those literary men; but they mark the extreme interest which has been felt for the new attempt to establish the opera here. In fact, it has created a sensation?the greatest excitement of the present day, and has employed as many pens and produced as much controversy, not only among the fashionable and literary circles, but in every rank of ssciety, down to the very newsboys and printers' devils, as any topic on this side of the presidential question, or even the war with Mexico. As yet, this great experiment to create a fash tollable coterie of society in New York, is in its beginning?just budding?on'y in its commencement. The rules adopted by the managers, the beauty ofthe performers, meaning the females, of course, and of the prima donna,nnd the talent of every other branch ofthe company, including the amiable Rapetti and the orchestra, are not more discussed than are the subscribers themselves ?the way iu which they dress, the appearance of the house, and the politeness displayed in the corridors, saloons, and retiring chambers. The whole presents one of the most curious social effervescences that has ever taken place in this country; and what the issue may be, seems as much a matter of mystery as what we are toiio with Mexico, or who is to be the next President. We have now had this beautiful temple, as it is callcd, of song, open for a week and a half. The house, with one or two exceptions, has not been well filled. One opera lias been given, and another is to be tried to-night; but thi? mftritft of th* rnmnanv ftr#? nnt rl?fprminA/l on yet, nor is it decided even whether the original exclusion of the free-list is to be rescinded or not. Thus far, the audience and the dresses of the ladies attending the theatre, have been the most interesting and conspicuous part of the movement. As a whole, the company is resectable, but no more ; but as a place for well dressed and genteel people to congregate on a cold evening, the opeTa house seems to possess great advantages, and ought to be managed with a good deai of skill. A new opera|will be given this [eve ning. According'.to the talk of the day, the brilliant array of ladies who usually frequent the opera,will grace the occasion with some of their brightest jewelry, their richest laces and freshest costumes, just arrived from Paris by the last steamer. Certainly the array of beauty displayed t.iere can compare with that which we have seen in London, Paris, Naples, Milan, Vienna,Venice or Berlin. The costumes of the ladies may not possess the same exquisite grace and finish that vou will find in the Salle Ventadour; but still they will contrast favorably with those displayed in the Queen's Opera House, in London, although not so rich or vulgar, nor so full oi jewelry, lace and bad taste. As yet, the result ol this curious experiment in establishing permanently Italian opera and a fashionable class ol society, seems to be as uncertain as the settlement of the Mexican question, or the next Presidency. The famous secret committee have pui forth several rules one day, and violated them with impunity the next. Tliat to exclude the press and the dead heads, is one instance of vacillation. They are now going to violate and desecrate the rights of the subscribers, by opening the theatre on the off nights for the pagan: at large, and giving the cast-off operas to the vul gar, and the seats- of those who have paid for them.

The accident occurred about five miles below Cape [ Girardeau, and the loss of life w*s most deplor? nble?at the lowest estimate one hundred and thirty persons perif-hed ; and of these but five ? were cabin passengers. A large number of the [ lost passengers were farmers and their families, r emigrating to the Upper Missouri and Misiissipm country ; and out ol between one hundred and seventy or eighty of these, who were passengers on deck, but twenty-five could be found af. t<-r the accident. Nineteen horses were lost, belonging to lhe passeog' rs. Seven negroes, belonging lo an enngrant, were among the drowned. Five cabin passengers were lost. A young couple ' wi-re drown-d in the cabin, who had b*rn mar| ried hut a few days orevious at Cincinnati. Two children were also drowned in the cabin. The boat sunk so rapidly that the passengers were i driven to the hurricane deck in their night l clothes. A passenuer siated to us that immedi> ately upon being aw >ke with the conruii>i-<ii, he attempted lo draw on his boots, and before nc " could do so 'he water was up to his middle in the cnbin. The ill-fated Talisman, heavily freighted, ! w-s oorne under in almost a moment's time. A . vounzl-idy passenger was hurried so suddenly s f'0 > her stateroom by the wnter, that she was t forced to leave her reticule, containing #600 in 1 gold, beneath her pillow.
