Mr. Foss, the chief operator on the line, made every effort to repair the damage io time to get the news through, but it was so serious that it was impossible. Our arrangements are always so extensive, that failure is entirely out of the : question ; and in spite of the disaster to the j lightning line, we present the news to our ! readers in this day's paper in full. \'ewi from Europe. By the arrival of the steamship Acadia, at i Boston, from Liverpool, we have advices tifteen days later than those received by the previous arrival at this port. lu consequence of a severe snow storm, the steamer anchored below Boston, and was hoarded by our special agent, and the news despatched to this city by a special messenger over the Springfield and New Haven railroad Having received full files of English papers, we have devoted a larg*1 part of our paper to the news. In a financial and commercial point of view the intelligence is mgniy lavoraoie ana interest- i ing. The political news does not amount to : much. Quotations for cotton were firm, and | there had been no particular change in prices for ! breadstuff's. This was attributed to the tight- ' ness in the money market, there having been no reduction in the rate of interest, or any important : increase in the discounts by the Bank of Eng. 1 land, notwithstanding the additions to the sup- I ply of bullion and the general improvement in the condition of the bank. The advance in con- j sols, is indicative of the abundance of money in financial circles. The reason given for not re- ; ducing the rate of interest was, that it would sti- ( mulate speculation in staple articles of trade and i tend to check the return to more healthy times, | than u steady adherance to the high rate ruling, j The accounts from the manufacturing districts are no more encouraging than those previously received, and there was no prospect of any immediate improvement. The failures which have i taken place, have fallen heavily upon ManchesI ter and other large manufacturing places, and it j will be tome time belore they can recover from I the shock. We have given the names of the 1 new failures reported, but they are not of much j consequence, and do not touch any interest on this side of the Atlantic. Daniel Webster In the United States Supreme Court?Popular Sovereignty an<l Conitltn* ttoiml Lawyers. Of the numerous arguments which have been made during the present sitting of the Supreme Court of the United States, on almost every subject, by the many ai:d multitudinous lawyers attending, none appear to hare attracted public attention, but the speech or argument of Paniel Webster, a few days ago, in opposition to the ' I>orr rebellion, as it is called, in Rhode Island, in which he explained and illustrated his views on the principles of constitutional Ijw and popu- ' lar sovereignty in the United States. This ! speech has been published in various quarters, and commented upon with tremendous eulogies, i representing Mr. Webster as possessing in his own mind, nearly four-fifths, and a quarter over, of all the intellect of the present age. Mr. Webster is, undoubtedly, one of the great ! i lights of the age?a sort of a sun to a solar sys- j tem in society, with a number of small lights I 1 revolving around him, and around him, and ' around hiin. He is so considered in this coun- | try, in Europe, and throughout th? civilized i world, up to the edge of the moon's atmosphere. I Hut the great and manifold light ol'his mind is limited to certain distinct points, certain luminous spots, without embracing a whole eternity ol brilliancy, comprehending the past, the present, and the future, from the Silurian era down to the last day. He is, essentially, a lawyer?an animal winch marks the oolitic formation?full ol gigantic llying reptiles He possesses wonderful power of analysis. He can spread himself out, under the impulse of h fee of a thousand dollars, ' over a valiety of subjects that appear to the pub- j lie nund misshapen and confuted. He can col- | lect these confused facts, assort them, label ! ; man, nx man, snaae man, una put than up in ! mob a shape an to have the appearance of pliilo- , sophy, reason, truth, mid universal light and li- | berty. His mind, in its original state, was un- ! doubtedly great and powerful, mid intended for the year 2716; but it hns been pared down by | pressing necessity?by professional shackles?by Boston notions, ho that it is now nothing but that of a lawyer, who, on receiving a check lor a certain amount, gives his reason* .aid shapes his arguments to satisfy thore who employ him? I and that is all. * Now, looking at Air. Webster's argument on \ the Dorr rebellion, in this comprehensive view, we (ind that its principal points and salient principles wre hsa?d on n >tll;iey, mid in denial ot every principle of popular sovereignty which he affects to suppor . The principles on which Mr Webster relies, contain ;!ie germs of those j privileges which h;ive, in former rg^s, led to the exe'usive possession ol power by tho kings, j lords, priests, or emperors. From men acting on the same reasoning which lie lies put for- ' ward in this case, the feudal system nrnse among j tlis Ajiglo-Maxons and the Hermans, who were originally a free people, but who became shuckby forms of law, AooumuUtsd in 'hs laps* j of a few eenturies, until they eaded in despotism itself. Lawyers'arguments and lawyers' reasons lead to exclusiveness and despotism. The Angle-Saxons and the original German# were, at the first, a Iree people. They were bound by no forms but those of the will and common sense of the eommuniiy, properly ascertained and authenticated. Jn process of tune, however, some oi those forms became law, and they accumulated, in the course of ages, until they resulted in the feudal system, and, ultimately, in the despotism of the present age, in certain parts oi Europe. Now, the theory of American liberty and law is altogether in an opposite direction. The American (evolution was a rebellion?a popular rebellion?and nothing else, according to all the interpretations of English, Anglo-Saxon, or Webster law. The French revolution was also a rebellion ; yet who will deny that both thtfse great outbursts of the people were founded on the right of man to self-government ? We do not know the particular facts of the Dorr rebellion in Jlliode island, intimately, nor is it necessary to dive into the details to know that the argument of Mr. Webster in founded on part efthe same arguments which the tories in the time of the American revolution put forth against that great event, aud which the supporters of exclusive privileges iu the despotic countries of Europe, yet use with force and effect, to keep the human race in chains and bondage to kings and lords. If lawyers' minds and lawyers' arguments be permitted to control public events in this country, for two centuries to come, we have no duiibt that American liberty, which was established by the revolution of '76, will be almost annihilated at the end of a few hundred years. Nothing but the people and the press, and general education, can preserve a great republic from running into privileges, exclusiveness, and despotism. Any single profession, be it the military, the clergy, or the lawyers, that attains the ascendancy, in any community, will ulways lead to the same results. Past history has proved, again and again, to the world, that the tendency of the Jclergy, the military, and the lawyers, as classes of society, is hostile to public and general liberty, and no one can deny the general fact. In this country the clergy are placed in their natural position. Human rights and liberty are most in danger, in these United States, from the profession of arms and the profession of the law. The republic of Rome lost her principles by soldiers and lawyers. Mark that, good people. Theatres and Public Amusements.?There are nearly twenty places of public amusement in this city, including theatres and every species of exhibition, to say nothing of public balls and other places, where you can procure a ticket at the door. The Bowery, the Chatham, the Park, the Broadway, the Olympic, are all doing, more or less, a prosperous business. The legitimate drama, however, does not seem to succeed or pay. Melo-drama, spectacle, exhibition, horses, and humbug, seem to please the public much better than the old classic drama, including Shakspeare and Sheridan, who are far behind the age. Some attempt is made at the Broadway to revive the legitimate drama; but there seems to be no sympathy with it at all, at the present day. A new spirit seems to have arisen, in certain quarters, favorable to native productions, especially those formed on incidents in the Mexicau war. They take remarkably well, principally at the Bowery theatre. The Italian Opera is, of course, well attended when ?ood singing and good music are brought forward. But one of the most curious phases in public amusements that has struck us at this time, is the progress of exhibiting the almost naked figures of men and women, under the designation of model artists, holy groups, and sacred figures, taken from the scriptures, and the old and new testament. It is only a few months since the first of these exhibitions was opened to a Sew York audience. They seem to have sprung up soon after the arrival of Powers' statue of the Greek Slave here. That was looked upon by all classes of society as a work of art; but the mass of our community have no particular predilection for cold marble. It was soon discovered thatthe exhibition of living men and women,in a semi-transparent drapery, looking like nudity, nlways under the name of model artists, or sculptural groups, take remarkably well. Accordingly, from the first week the model artists were exhibited, they have increased to such a degree that you can view them in almost every street and lane, in any low grog shop, nt six cents a sight. They arc rapidly degenerating from the taste and propriety which characterised them in Palmo's or Pinteux's, aad have, at last, got so low, in some of the by-streets, asfthree, four, or five cents, thereby inviting newsboys, loafers, and the veriest ragamuffins about town, to see them. We remember the rise, progress, and fall of masquerading, as an amusement. The exhibition of semi-naked figures as models of art, seems to be ruuning the same course; and we should not be surprised to see the necessity of the legislature passing a law regulating such exhibitions. In some of the out-of-the-way streets and lanes, these exhibitions are really too bad, and their further tolerance in our city would be a die grace. Thk Opera.?The opera of1"Romeo and Juliet" does not seem to take. The house, on the second representation, wan quite thin, and the applause cold, formal and badly put in. Madame I'atti is acknowledged on all hands to have been a good artist?very chaste and correct. But she has passed her hey-day, and is no longer what she has been. Mile. Barilli has been pronounced beautiful, and possesses a good deal ol grace and action; but as a vocalist, is by no means correct, finished, oi pleasing. Signor Kosi seem* to be the art'iBt who carries oil' the most praise from I the skilful and knowing; but on the whole, i " Romeo and Juliet" is lame, and lugs far be-I hind some of the preceding operas. By the by, the musical criticisms of some of I the journals are quite amusing, more especial- j ly those of the Courrier dt* Ehila Unit. In some i of the articles that appear in that delectable paper concerning the opera, there is such good nature, > and amiable combinations of sense and silliness, ' of absurdity and critical acumen, of learning ' and lumbering, that they seem to be more a sort of liulf-foitr.ed literary articles, than real musical critiqves. One very sensible remark made in ! these critiqun, must strike every person as rather ; correct, viz: that the refined audience oi the Astor Place Opera applaud seldom when ap- j plause is deserved, ?uid fail to condemn when | condemnation is merited. In lact, the critic I thinks the audiences there would relish much better, and be better judges, of a mere English I ballad, than they would be of the finished musi- J cal compositions called Italian operas.
