[From the Manoheater Kzaminer, Nor. 30 ] The ftfth annual soiree of the Manchester Atheniium, took plaoa on Thursday evening last, in the Kree Trade Hall, and although it did not equal In magnitude mme of Its predecessors, it waa, on the whole, a very satisfactory and comfortable one. As the former soirees have been often characterised by the name nf distinguished noblemen or gentlemen, who have presided over tnem, ao will the present one be frequently referred to under the appellation oftha "Alison Soiree;" and right worthy ia it of thii distinctive title, for every one who listened to, or reads the opening address of the brilliant historian of tha''History of Europe during the Krench Revolution," will acknowledge that a more appropriate, a more forcible, or a more eloquent speech has not vet been delivered by any ohairmau of the Manchester A the oiaum soirees. The number of ticketa sold, eaoh of whioh admitted a lady and gentleman, was uboutt*60; so that the whole company, including invited guests, was about 1,800. This number, we need scarcely say, was oomfortably seated in the hall; and its vast area afforded ample spaoe for those who. after bavins listened to the speaking. remained for the purpose of Joining in the (lance, or promenading amidst the gay groups Mr. Cobden, on this occasion, made l is first appearsaoe In public since his return home from hit oontinental tour; and he was received id a manner which showed that the strong feeling of admiration whioh is felt for his character and abilities, has not been at all diminished by absence. Amongst the gentlemen present were Viscount Drackley, M P ; Archibald Alison, Esq , the President; Richard Cobden, Esq , M P.; John Britfht, Efq , M P ; Klkanah Armitage, Esq, Mayor of Manchester; K. P. Livingston, Esq , ex-Mayor of Salford; Major Oeneral Weymss; (ieorge Crulkthank, Kiq.; John Bowring, Esq , L L. D M. P ; Charles Swain, Esq.; William Harrison Ainswortb, Esq,;*John Moore, K?q ,F. L. 8.; Kulph Waldo Kmerson, of Massachusetts, to.. Sic . 810. The Chairman, Mr. Cobden, Mr Bright, Dr Bowrlag, and the prinoipal guests, entered the hall about a quarter past seven o'clok, and were greeted with a round of hearty applause. At half past seven o'clock, A. Alison, Eff], the author of the History of the Krenoh Revolution, the ohalrman, rose, and when the applause with which he was hailed had subsided, said: ?Ladies and gentlemen, before we begin the business of the night, 1 regret that I am under the neoessity of stating the apologies on the part of Lord Nugent and of Mr. Diokens. Unavoidable absence on the part of both that noble lord and that highly talented gentleman have prevented them from haviug the gratification of meeting you to-night I am quite sure that the grief that you will feel for their absenoe Is shared by themselves, from the exp-trl ence whioh 1 know they have had of the gratification of meeting such assemblages as this. The secretary will now read the apologies fram some other persons, before the business of the meeting begins. The Chairman then rose agala, and addressed the thi company as follows:? Ladles and Uentlamea?When 1 look around me on this magnificent assembly?when 1 reoolleot that It is, as it were, the heart and soul of Manchester itself, the oentre of the commercial greatnes< of Eogland? wnen I oall to mind the splendid eloquence with whioh you have been addressed from this place, I know not whether feelings of pride or humility should bo uppermost In my bosom of pride, that your direotors have deemed me worthy to succeed the many eminent men who have already Ailed this ohair -of humility, that I should be in most respects so unworthy to ocoupy their place. * * ? 1' ?? ?? ? ?_ i uu 'fiu kU JUU UUIOUJ, II UUl 0UUr?IJ, UJ ruy writings, I urn not in reality literary man. Literature has been the delight, but it has not been tbo osculation. of my life, anil the works which have procured me the high honor which 1 now enjoy, have been but the amusement of evening*, after da;s spent in the discharge of laborious duties. (Che rs ) I can thus speak from mv own experience of the possibility of uniting business and literature. I can tell you from personal knowledge of the solace it affords to a life of labor, and how It forms, as it were, a link between the aotive and speculative world. 1 may perhaps posters one qualification for ad dressing an institution which aims at uniting the energy ot commercial enterprise with the refinements of literary thought. There Is another circumstance whioh renders the honor now conferred in a peculiar manner grateful to me, and which I hope I may be forgiven for alluding to. I have lived so long in Scotland tbat it is generally believed that I belong to that oountry; bat, though my anoesterswere Scotch, 1 was not born to the north of the Tweed, and when your kindness recalled me to this country, it recalled me to the land of my birth (Applause ) 1 was born at no great distance from this city, in the neighboring county of Shropshire. My exrlieat recollection of the paternal home is of the solitude and seclusion of an English pursonage house, aud ifanything I have slnoe done has rendered me worthy of your favor, it is owing to the example I then saw, and the precepts I then received. Nor has the long period whioh has since intervened weakened the reoollections of infancy; not a long sojourn among tbe mountains of Scollund, not the the grandeur of the Alps, nor the beauties ot tbe Appeolnea, have been able to dim thelmage of its surpassing loveliness. I still see, in dear vision, the Severn stealing through its grassy meads, the storied summits of the Caerdoo and Lawley, the woods of Aoton Burnell Hill sleeping on their placid lakus ; the Wrekln arising in solitary uajosty , the sun netting behind the ridgx of Cader idris. (Cheers) I see that the names I have mentioned are as household words to many who hear me ; but if they are so to you, what must they be to me who am recalled to their vlolnlty, after an absenoe of so many years, to fill a plaoe which the descendants of the Howards was proud to occupy ? Interesting as such as nruiuncD H bum uiuit U? ftl> *11 birDCB, ftDQ ID BU pl&QOff, there is something peculiarly Appropriate for them in a great commercial city, such as Manchester. There is a natural connection which has made itself manifest in every age between oommero* and intellectual eminence; and the greatest step* ?n human Improvement.the greatest marvels of human exertions, bare arisen from their combination. It was to the commercial oity of Tyre that we owe the invention of letters?that wonderful and almost superhuman discovery. which first gave permanence to the creations of thought, and sends forth the "winged words " of genius to make the circuit of the globe) and charm, white it endures It was its fortunate situation on the highway from Asia to Kurope, since reopened by British enterprise, which gave its early ce lebrity and enduring fame to ancient Kgypt ; ana we owe to the caravans of the desert, ranre even than to the power of the Pharaohs, those wonderful structures, the I'yritQids of Cairo, and Temples of Luxor, which, after the lapse of four thousand years, still stand *' erect and unshaken abova the floods of the Nile.'' Rome herself, the mis'.reis of the world, owed her vast Hbd enduring dominion mainly to the energies of commerce ; and we have only to oa:t our eyes on the map. and behold her provlnoes olnstered round the waters of the M?diterranean,to be convinced that more even than to the arms of the legions, her power was owing to the strength of the maritime cities which glittered along its shores. It was tho caravans of the desert which raised those wonderful structures which still, at Tadmor and i'almyra, attest the magnificence of the queen of the east, and attract the admiration of the European traveller. It was in commercial Alexandria that alone a library was formed worthy of the vast stores of ancient knowledge ; and when the dominion of the consuls had fallen, and the arm of the Roman could no longer defend Italy from the swords of the barbarians, the incomD&ia bl? situation and commercial greatness ot Constantinople perpetuated for a thousand years longer on the frontier of barbarian wilds, the empire of the east. Nor hu commerce in modern times falleu from her high vocation an the chief spring of sooial improvement, and moit powerful humaniser of man. (Cheers) It w?h io the manufacturing city of Florence that a rival was found .n Dante to the genius of ancient poetry ; in the merran- I tile oity of Venice that painting rose to its iilghest lustre on the canvass of Titian. Oenoa sent forth that daring spirit which first burst the boundaries of ancient knowledge, and exposed to Kuropuan enterprise the wonders of another hemisphere. It was in Lisbon that there was at once found, in Vasco de Oama, the courage to brave the Cape of Htorins, and open the ocean path to the region* of the east, and the genius of Camoens to celebrate the glorious enterprise, and forever enshrine it in the hearts of men. (Applause) (ireat as these achievements fcre, there are yet greater things than these. It is iu the north that the chief triumphs of the alliance between commerce and Intellect are to | be found. To one commercial city ot Germany we owe the art of printing?to another the reformation The , flrst has r. ndered certain the diffusion of knowledge,the | fast impossible the slavery of thought. (Loud cheers.) i i'ainting has again in the north reached Its highest perfection in a commercial city - in Antwerp, where the immortal genius of Vandyke and ltubens waa exhibited ? Commerce in Holland achieved a glorious vlotory alike over the storms of nature and the oppressions of inan ? Hut why should we travel to other times and distant lauds for a confirmation of the same eternal truth? In | this sge, In this country, in this olty, its highest glories t.avu b??u found. Here it was. and here alone, that a successful stand was at last made against the age rontons of revolutionary France; it was the discoveries of Watt, oi Arkwriglit, and of Crompton. which array*<l the force* which the arm* of Napoleon were unable to nab dun it was a company of British merchant* whieh sutjected the vast realm* nf Hindoatan to the *ceptn of Uueen Victoria, and exhibited the prodigy of a single litlhi Uizrltt announcing in one day the capture ot < abool, in the hem t of Asia, and the *ubmi?*lnn of the Celestial Empire under the wall* ot Nankin It I* the energy of Drillah romtnercn which ha* peopled the we*t ru hemisphere with our deeoi ndant*. and in (preadtnft through the eastern archipelago the wondern of European art and the bleuing* of < hrlstian civilization ? Hitherto the progress of Improvement ha* ever been from eaat to west; from the riling to the getting of the *un; but the merchant* of England have f?r the flr*t time in the hittory of the world, rolled baok the tide of civilization to it* source, and returned It* blearing* to the region* of the run. Regarding, then, literature in .it* highest aspect, that of the creat fountain, not merely of useful knowledge, but of elevat?d and generou* sentiment*, let me earnestly etitreat you to apply vigorously to that which can alone give the pa*sport to iti whole treasure*? the study of foreigu language*. (Cheer*) The emperor Charle* V. said, that whenever he read a foreign language, he felt a new aoul within him.

CoLVMan, Ohio, Dec 11, 1847. i 7'Ae Rtr.rpti?n of Col Morgan. | Last evening a company of nearly two hundred demo , eratlc Friend* of Col. (J. W. Morgan, recently arrived from the battle Held* of Mexloo, partook of a oopllmen | tary supper at the Atnnrioan Hotel, In this city Col Mamuei Medary presided, and the company embraced I ' number ot dlstinguisned oltiiena from all parts of th< 1 State, now in the city. ' The spirit of patriotiam of course ran high ! Colons Morgan replied to the complimentary toast in an appro prlatn speech, spiced with some terse remarks ut>oul ' ' traitors at heme,'' ot equal guilt with the traitors thai ' k? bad seen hung upon the gibbet In Mexico: He givi it as his. and not onlv his, but the opinion of most o ' the officers and men or tbe army, now in Mexico, that with Mexico, as Mexloo, we can never be at p*ace ; thai 1 the only alternative now left, Is to plaoe the whole of il under territorial jurisdiction ot the United States , that though the timid may shrink ; demagogues may bawl traitors may soheme, butthe destiny orthe Amerloanna ! tlou?the American people, not as the Anglo Haxon ract merely, but as tbe offspring of oivlliied Kurope an destined to plant the standard <H liberty over the Ame ' rican continent; and it would be done -Yankees had I ' fr>othold in Mexloo whioh would never be withdrawn !He mad* the astounding remark, that the bodies c more than llyOOt gallant spirits steep beneath the soil o 1 Mexico whose last shout of victory was that th?ir be 1 loved banner-thestars and stripes ? upon whloh thej > cast their dying glances, might forever wave over thef I graves! * Th? prevailing sentiment of his remarks was?that oui II troops in Mexloo entertained no other ultimatum of th? * war, than the extension of our government over the en llreoountry. He olosed by offering as a toast . Menr/i? Hlie I, i? Keen rnn<:,iere'i by the awofj?iiie mill B be retimed by the pen i One thing In worthy of note connected with this meeting Although the supper wa* got up a* * oornpllmenl to the gallant Morgan by hi* demoaratlo friends and i former political campaigners, yet not a few prominent t whigsoould not resist the Impulse of the spirit of patriot* i Kin burning within them to show their appreciation ol 1 hlsdKllaut servloes, rendered though they were in oonqiiWWiin Mexico, but came forward and joined moat hear! tlly In the spirit of the eveaing 1 Thus wan evidenced the truth of the Colonel'* re r mark demagogues may howl, but the Amarloan people r will sustain all who will sustain this war, and will con? drmn all who will Impose obit nle* to It* early termina t tion t Another point I* worthy of consideration,a* developed by the remark* and spirit evince! by Colonel Morgan.? J He 1* recently from the *e?t of war?the place, also, , where the minister of peace stands in waiting to order the sword to be sheathed lie Is a friend of the administration, and as such, uo doubt, enjoyed the conII denne of those who represent the wishes of the adminlsi tratlon in the active army. With all these opportunl| ties of forming an opinion, and these eircumstancii* influencing hi* opinion, he boldly assert* that our only alternative Is to eitand olvll jurisdiction ovei the whole of Mexico I have thought it of sufficient Interest to the reader! of the Utrald, to notice thus much of this meeting lt? jiplrlt, Mhiuk, I* a *trong Indication of what our relations with Mexico will oome to.
