THJ <Vbol? No. 50*4. Highly Interesting' Newspaper Question. BENNETT AND THE NEW YORK HERALD. Bishop Hughes' Sermon on Bennett's Havoc among Virtuous Women. [From Bishop Hughes' frMtniii'i Journal and Cathollo Ra?i?t?r ] [From a Halifax papar ] Some of our city papers have been retailing [ 1?i? .Jumn'itc nC ihp infnmmiH B^nnetf. ot I the Herald, against that able champion of catholicity, the distinguished bishop of New York ? Th^re is not a cWgymtn in the United States more universally esteemed by all ranks, classes, and creeds, than Dr. Hughes, or one whose opinion ou any subject carries more weight. He is, no doubt, the terror and scourge of every impostor, and especially of every literary scoundrel who degrades the press bv licentiousness and falsehood. When, some tour years since, the bishop tied upBennert to the triaugle ?>f public opinion, and scourged the rascal's bunk with the whipthouj of argument and ridicule, he crushed an odious tyrauny under which the stoutest hearts in New York had long trembled. No character, no age, no aex, could be secure against the attacks of tnis American Marar, who levied his black-mail with impunity on the fears of his intended victims Scarcely a family of any respectability escaped Irom tne fangs of this ravenous monster, H!id the conaequcnca was, that when a bishop of the Catholic church arose, in all the independence of his sacred ministry, and, in behalf of insulted morality and calu-infiated innocence, reproved the miscreant, and inflicted an ever memorable chastisement upon him, he won the gratitude and respect of the citizens of New York. Bennett wiaced and groaned under the lash, and sooa, like the well-whipped hound, slunk inte a cowardly silence. He is since civil* timxii *riH nnrlar n Imn <if excommunication from hia fellow citizens. When he lately drew, ! y lot, a box in the new Opera Housa in Astor Place, every respectable person who drew boxes at each sid* of him, to a very respectful distance, refused to enter them, and gladly gave up their privileges, to take a seat as far as possible from this calumniator of virtuous women, and destroyer of the psace of families. We pity and are ashamed ?f the people of New York, for having so long submitted to the degrading tyranny of a fallow like Bennett, who, not many years ago, waa not considered tit to be a common choolmnster in Nova Scotia. But, to return to Bishop Hughes, and to the would-ba imitators of Bsnnett in these parts, we assert that it is false to call the Bishop " a violent demagogue." There is not a more loyal or constitutional citizen in the United States ; and this is well known by men ?f all parties. It is equally false that he ever sought to be appointed as a Mexican commissioner?an absurdity which is laughed at by every one who knows his high position?or thtt he aver ajkrd any other appointment lrom government.

There is no journal in the world, according to cm.* humble opiiiiou, that exerts to powerful and bo wide spread an influence upon the public mind as the Ntw York Herald. It combines all the elrmsnts ot us-ful, high-toned journalism in a most remarkable degree. Its founder, proprie tor and editor is a wonderful man. The advent of Walter marked a new era in journalism in England, and Bennett's advent has produced a similar result in the United States. Walter has iiad and still has imitators, but they have never been able to eame up to their model. So of B*nai-tt; ha smnds alone in his greatness in this country. While their imitatcru have never been able to reach tne platform which these two extraordinary men occupy, yet their exertions in try g to come up to their models have not been without good *ff< ct in helping to purify journalism from its weaknesses, and to elevate it to a sound and healthful condition. The great curse of the public press has been and is its puerility. Walter and Bennett have taught it to think and ....... I.

It hss, lti its day, uiven, and it contiucs to givi , by operating upon public bentilert, a direction to the puolic policy ot the Br s:i government, that is the just fruit of such uwt riul journalism. The Aeto York Herald has een pit-paring Hit* way tor the came results, [iiy, it u is already exerted iin influence upon ublic se.itiinrnt that Ins been felt from on'- end I' the Union to the oilier. Its tearless discusons of pjlitical measures, and its bold exposiomb of the selti-li schemes ol politicians, have i>n?j great good, nnd, forwarded the inte sts ot the country tn an eminent degree.

Lven when * has employed men to attend to this departent ol lus journal, it was Mr. Hennrtt's n 1 us that struck out the line of argument be pursued, und gave the points to be disused.

He has |?n?* more tliau aiI other moil in the couniry to ach the people th*t hanking is nothing more nn n system of trading upon credit, the chief nefit of which accrues to the non-laboring ,itses. But, an we have smd, the Hrrald has urcfly yet laid the foundation for its permanent flnence tii'on public men and public things in in country It in daily and hourly launching rtlv upon new and untried seas, and its recent >hiev?ments in making the eltctric telegraph niater 10 its mastery of events, is without pallet. To lay before the thousand* ul readers of w York city the speeches of Senators in the nlted S(,u?-s Senate the morning after they are L|ivi*r?*d, makes Washington a suburb of New Lrk, siid enables the public mind, while the [oughts of the speakers are yet warm, to canIts and pass judgment upon the ideas and aug[itioas ot iheir servants, with a facility hitherto E NE1 NEW unknown in the world. Yet this lias been done by the Htrald-, but it is ouly the beginning of this' new enterpiiee. Before the close of the present half century, we predict that the Ntto 1 york Htrald will be the perfect mirror of events in this vast chnf??Heracv_ noting and reacting upon the public mind with a power that cannol be estimated by the data before ua. But the moat remarkable thing about the New York Herald is its origin, an compared with that of the London Timet. The fouuder of the former ciime to this country a poor Scotch boy, 1 without much book education. He was industrious, and by severe lubor, in which he was frequently imposed upon by heartless newspaper employers in the most shameful manner, he managed to keep soul and body together,and to train himself unconsciously for the mission to which he has been called. There are those who still enjoy the credit of his literary labors; but the time will come when thev will be stripped of their borrowrd plumage. Driven from post to pillar, i Mr. B. founded tne New York Herald in 1835. ( For the first lew days, tho enterprise threatened to fail, for he had no money capital. Things, 1 however, took a favorable turn, and the Herald i went up, and has been going up ever since, until | the proprietor is now a millionaire und promises to be a second Astor. His genius was his capi tal. but tlio conflict ot tins mental capital with the money capital of New York was terrible through a series of years. Mr. Bennett fearlessly arrayed himself against the corruptions of society and hoarded wealth, and they in turn ' strove to crush him day by day. Every lie that could be dragged from the bottomless pit of dia- | bolism, was put afloat against him He was hunted from society as though he was a wild beast. But he kept the even tenor of his way, I and lived down the misrepresentations of malice and envy. Ever and anon, however, the powers ( of darkness were let )oosp upon his head in new forms. Men were found desperate enough to I violate the law and to assail his person. Had i we been in his place, we are free to acknowledge that the issue would have been very different in those shameful personal assaults. They should have taken our life, or theirs would have been the forfeit of their ranine**; but, as it is, Mr. 1 Bennett hus outlived those ruffian assaults, and ' stands now immeasurably above his assailants j in all the attributes of human excellence. He bore , the buffets of the envy and malice that sought to kill him with a practical submission that puts to shame the professions of loud-mouthed Chris- i tians. and he has been rewarded for his Chris- , tian conduct by tho approbation oj'all good men, of all men whose esteem is worth having. His enemi'n are now under his feet, and yet he remembers mercy. ( How different the rise of Walter ! He began , journalism with thousands of rgoney at his command, and he expended upon the Timet $350,000 1 before it began 10 yield the first penny in return. | Gteat whs his conflict, too, against the powers , of money and the social institutions of hiscoun try; but he fought them to advantage. They sough not to blacken his character: becauss they I knew theeff?rt would be vain. He triumphed , over combinations againBt him that would nave \ crushed any other man, and he lived to see the , end of all his hopes?his newspaper the fourth , power in the government of Great Britain. Mr. , Bennett's career and struggles are infinetely more instructive than those of' Mr. Walter. The for- ; mer rose from poverty by the mighty force of his genius, and conquered the a lied powers of money and corrupt society, that sought to destroy him. The latter was already in position, and overcame resistance from among his owniVllaws. Both have rendered society the greatest go(id?both have established the science of journalism; but each from differentpointi d'ap put 11 is n?t in his writings alone, that Mr. Bennett's gpuius as a journalist is exhibited. It is seen in the powerful corps of writers which he has assembled j iround him in the conduct of his journal. He , enjoys thr facility, hi a, in detecting in othai men the propei qualifications tor the labors which he requires at their hands. This was Mr. Waller's great fori also. But it is Hanuett's articles which give character to his journal. He is the founder of a new school of writing. His articles are complete essays in lh?mselves. They hav>* a beginning, a middle, 1 and an ending. They are characterized by a dashing fearlessness that harmonizes with the j tone of the American mind. They are not col- i lections of words merely, but are bundles of just | thoughts, sound arguments, and practical con- j elusions Their charm lie* in the purity of their i style. There is a vein of cheerfulness running | through them that is delightfully refreshing, j Mr. Bennett's style of writiug is peculiar to him alone. He niny be said to be the founder ot a | school of writing, whose chief characteristic ib simplicity, and whose basia ia common sense. Law Intelligence. ScrsBiOB Court?Before Chief Ju*tise Oakley ?

The enclosed was written by a member of Congress, and is said to be a faithful uccount of the scenes enacted in Caracas, ou the 24th, and which have indelibly stained the escutcheon of the republic ot Venezuela. The greatest excitement prevailed throughout the republic. The schooner Susan Lading, Capt. Doty, has sn ebcliartered to take to the United States despatches for the government. Shn will sail today. I will keep you advised of every movement La Guayra, Feb. 2, 1848. The late difficulties in the House ot Representatives, at the capital, were foreseen. The liberal party, as they call themselves, but properly called the negro party, having succeeded in the election of a President, he has been inflicting injury upon those who are opposed to his administration, and favoring that faction who, on repeated occasions, have attempted to usurp the control of the government by force. In 1835 the President was arrested and sent away to the Island of St. Thomas, by the same faction which are now in power, and the political offenders on that occasion, have been called to office as a reward for their former treasonable icts against the legitimate government. Morino was at the head of that party; he was banished for life, but restored to his country after an absence ot eight years, and now restored to the command ot" the troops. Monagas headed a considerable force on that occasion. General Paez, the Napoleon of Veneiuela, promptly marched to the province of Barcelona, where Monaghs was encamped, and pitched his tents on a large hato (cattle farm) of Monagas, and the troops wer-ordered to kill and cut." Monagns could not long stand this military charge and bloodshed; he sent his Senora to Piiez, as his minister plenipotentiary to treat for peace. Paez stipulated to allow his adversary to retain his rank, to deliver up his arms, disperse his men and pay the expeuse of th^ expedition. This Monagts agreed to. and the war .vits concluded. Gren. Paez is the only man the party in power ire afraid of; he is a host in himself, fn the war of the revolution it was estimated that he killed one hundred men, with his own spear, in one battle. The mail from Caracas was interdicted yesterday, but rumor states that Paez is marchinp; upon the capital with 1500 lancers. Gentlemen from Caracas state that all the troops evacuated the capital yesterday. The oligarchy r?pres?ntatives in Congress (as they are called) have a majority, and it appears it was their object to prefer charges ag*int the President for unconstitutional acts, and thereby to suspend him for his constitutional term of office. This act led to violence in the House. Troops burst in and lired upon the members, and several were killed. The President pretends this violent measure was without his authority; but it is believed it did not tike place without his knowledge and private instruction. An embargo was immediately ordered at this |ioit to prevent any vessel sailing, which was kept in force two days. As 1 shall proceed to the capital this day, I will defer aturther account until I can make personal inquiry into all .u~ r *u: i: ;1 ...... UIC IflUia <'I 111 IB pUllllvUI lllUYtllKUl, WIICU pu I will hear lrom me a^ain. The public treasury is without a dollar, and the National Bank and party opposed to the government refuse to loan * dollar. Money, is noyv worth from three to live per cent per month in the capital. The. obiect seems to be to embarrass the present administration as much possible. Americam v.

He owed this honor exjlusivelv to the recommendations of General Paez. Nothing whatever had rendered his lite llustrious, nor Iihs he ever had any note us i soldier, never having been known, except t be tor the wealth he has acquired, not >y industry or labor, but by the spoliations ivhich, during the irregularities of the wtir if indept ndeuce, were impossible to be ivoided. The proclamations which he addressed as under officer to the people, in order to recess the commotions which took place at that lenod, and the political principles which he rave out in his private letters, obtained tor him lie voles of the electoral collet's in the provinces most devoted to General Pocz. No >ther candidate of any other party having been resented by the above mentioned colleges, the ?resent Congress, composed of the s.ime mem>ers of winch it consists at this moment, perected the election by more than two-thirds of ts votes.

The office of Minister ot the Interior and of lusuce (or Secretary ol State) was given in barge ol Dn. Angel Quintero To fa. Miguel Jerrara was committed the ministry of Foreign Uigurs. The ministry of War and of the Navy vhh entru-ted to General Jose Maria Carrero. * The administration thus constituted, proceedd in its course with regularity, but General donagas very soon exhibited symptoms ol not reing satisfied with this order ot tliiugs, su that >y the month of May a separation and a cliauge n the constitution of the ministry was alrendy a hing resolved upon. The minister, Herrars, irat gave in Ins resignation from motives ol deli:ucy. At the same tune, Sen.

THE NKW MINISTRY. Dr Tontas Jose San.ibria was appointed Miniser of Justice, Colonel Blanco obtained the MinHtry of Foreign Affairs, Coloi el Francisco Me;ia, an obscure military man, was appointed dinister of War. It is necessary to s.ty that hese several nominations could not be coiinilered stable, and yet cVen so little was it to be oreseen that the public atV.urs would take the ourse they did under such an administration. The ministry proceeded to confer several oflies created by the Legislature ol '47, in open oposition to its views, upon peisona who belongd to the party which had elevated General Molagaa to the Presidency. It ia without doubt RK B NING, FEBRUARY 28, IS ihat this produced discontcntB, and led to th?* formation of systematic oppositions, first in Ga .._.i ~r. i? ir.i .i__ :._i rHUHo, mill auci wurus in v niniun, inn ua|Miai ( of Carabobo The nomination of General Marino na military comminder nf this province next occurred, the faithful and eccentric General Jose Maria Zamora being removed from ibid office?a man who had performed great and important

services in the destruction of the faction of 1846. Colonel Domingo Hernandes, military cominand? r of Carab'tbo, wm in a similar manner, turned out of office; a man also who had done great and sufficient services to the government in the last campaign. General Laurentio Sylva was substituted in his place ; one of the chiefs who, equally with the actual President, hud declared himself for the reform revolution in 1835. Ezequiel Zamora, who had been found guilty by the tribunals of the republic, of various atrocious crimes which he had commuted in the last insurrection, notwithstanding that he had not been included in the namber of those pardoned bv the President, was just as much protected by him. Nothing was spared to obtaiu aeeur-ty for such a great malefactor, and the counsel of government was desired to commute the punishment of death, to which he had been condemned, into a simple confinement to his own province. At last, however, with great effort it was obtaiue.I that he should be only confined in u fortress tor ten years. Zamora escuped when the judicial authorities were about to convey him to the execution of his sentence, for the officer who had him in charge had been designated by the military commander, who was the creature ot an admistration which openly exerted itself in order to save the guilty person. Already the above events had sown the seeds of discontent among great numbers of citizen*, aud all those of any estimation, when they saw tliat General Monagas was the decided protector of all those who had been concerned in the revolution of 184(5, or who had lent their aid and co-operation in committing the crimes which had distinguished it. THK BRITISH MINISTRY. A notable aud remarkable, fact ought to be mentioned here. Colonel Wilson. Charge d'Affaires of her Britannic majesty at Venezuela,was the iutiiuRto friend of Guzman ; the same who had been condemned to death, lie was on visiting terms with him, und kept up the clo-est relations of friendship with him ; and both himself, aa well as hia dependents, friends, and associates, always showed that tiiey joined in decided co-operati?n with the same Guzman. The boldness and effrontery of Colonel Wilson attained to such a pitch, that the government of General Soublette, in spite of its singular weakness and timidity, had been under the necessity of requesting his recall by the British government The new administration of Monagas, notwithstanding that the month of March administration had asked for the recall of this English minister, waa now composed of men who were decidedly favorable to this personage ; und not only did not require his recall, but, contrary to the national interests, withdrew the complaint agaiust him. HOSTII.K FRtrARATIONS. According to the course now pursued by the President, and the march of public atfurs under his conduct, niter having dar ingly separated himst If from the Suiireme Parliament, and from the Provincial Deputations; after giving to the l iws Hnd constitution an interpretation and a practical application contrary to their meaning?the President next directed his attention, to th* great surprise of ah good citizens, to the organization of militias of reserve, to be composed of miserable creatures, destitute of the means of providing arms and uniform*, as compared with the active militia, whmh. ncmirdini/ til Inur nr?? (>nmnnu>il of ner son* able to furnish both these necessaries, being therefore naturally persons of some means and respons'Nluy Above. :t!l. irv ord-T to jr?a*? ?t the accomplishment ot the evil purpose which was contemplated, und at deeds of a still worse character, he proceeded to disarm the active militia, on preteuce of the greater activity and diligence of the uew reserve which took their ijace, and over which he appointed chiefs and oflicers who were either favorers, or else instigators, or persq^ who had been compromised in the lute sedition. The danger of tiie republic, the consternation of all men, continued thus to go on, rapidly increasing, till at length the opposition gathered such force as to become most violent nud embittered. In this manner things were being driven to extremities. VIOLATIONS OK THK CON'TITITTION. With the obji-ct of strengthening himself in his plans, the President did not nominate governors for Caracas or for Carabobo, from among the names presented by the provincial deputations, according to the provisions of the constitution, by which they are secured in their municipal independence; but instead of that, he appointed, under various miserable pretexts, men who were prepared to obey him as ins blind and servile Instruments.

After so mmy, so great, such reiterated, misdoings, which cannot possibly be all related it this moment of conflict, no other resource was now left in order to nuke the perverted administration re-enter upon its course of duty, but thi t of seeking a remedy from the Congress which was to assemble on the20tn ot January last. The evil, however, seemed to be incurable, fr* m the military measures and precautions openly I !liken by the government. Also, the neighboring States had been constantly instigated by false representations and descriptions, ur.-ing aud preparing Ihem to be disposed to support the President at all costs, and at ell events, representing that the Congress, notwithstanding its popular organization, was composed of me.i who were the scum of all the provinces, aid who were the blind instruments of a party which was an enemy to the country and to its liberties THK 2()rH OF .TANIMBV. The 20th of January arrived at length under the rule of the above described fearlul and la mentalite circumstances; a day of tears for the administration, as well as of general anxiety and alarm lor the whole republic.

A constitutional quorum was present. The lirut measure was, to agree, in pecret neamon, upon the dismissal ol the Secretary at d of the olHcial head (or Speaker) of the Chamber ot Recri'sentatives, because they had behaved l>a?iiy in their situations and were persons lying under deep suspicions. Afterwards, in the next d ?y's s< anion, in conformity with act 75 of the con?;itution, not considering themselves iu pulety, and able, according to the constitution, to exercise thrir legist.?ti\e functions with freedom* and 1 believing that the proper s.-cunty would not be ' paid by them in the rental, it w ia re-aoivrd, in ( pursuance ol Article 71 of the Constitution, to | transfer the session of Con^resu to l'urto Cab -llo.

At half-past 2 o'clock in the afternoon, the .Secretary of State presented to the Chambers the message of the President. Dut aa the danger at every moment seemed to be greater, and threats had been used to induce the members to hear me communicati >n to be imde by the minister, in derogation of the fundamental rights and privileges of the Chamber, it waa proposed by one of the deputies and agreed to immediately, th it while the Secretary of State should remain on the spot, enquiries should be aid* of the other branches of the Executive for information as to what measures had been adopted for the public security, which ought, under such circumstances, to be taken, and which had already been demanded to be taken, Stc. At this moment it was easy to see that som" fatal catastrophe waa at hand, by the deadly paleness of the face of the Secretary of State, who waB thus forced to remain in the room without having been able to utter a word. ASSASSINATION OF TUB CONORKS9. The message of the President was now read. This solemn document, from the chief of the administration, offered to Congress greater securities for the free exercise of its functiona. At ,.his| moment, while all remained calmed, and eHcn one seemed as 11 possessed, tor niiiisen, 01 a pledge of personal securi'v?scarcely had the reading of the message been completed, when several bodies ot the militia of reserve began to present themselves at the doors of the house where the session was holding, and immediately fired upon a small gu?rd of t-n or twelve young men of distinguished families, who were keeping guard at the entrance of the place. Col. Smith was wounded, and one of the young men killed by this fire; yet, notwithstanding, they succeeded in fastening the door. It is to be remarked here, that in this bloody scene there was not in the chamber, thus delived up to be assassinated, a single member present of those who were avowed ministerial members. The House ot Sessions was completely invaded by the troops at the disposition of the government, and the whole interior was taken possession of. and their urueltv was carried to such u pitch as even to fire upon the spectators, who were on th* roof. Many persons, the major part of them, however, of youthful Hge, took refuge within the room of the session*; and during all this time, the greatest coolness and serenity were manifested by the members, who then, at that instant, raised a shout of 44 Hurra tor the constitution." This at his last hour, when each one saw death to be inevitable They called for 44 order" at different times, in the midst of the confusion, but the urariyers present among them, rendered it impossible to maintain order. Some individuals, two of whom I know, bearing the character of emissaries from the President, went about, protesfin? and proffering complete security and safety for those who would be willing to withdraw Tiiojc, however, who trusted to this assurance, when out of doors, met with insult and treachery, instead of protection. Many, however, were able toep^ip" from the numerous crowd of assassins arnvd by rlie overiinu nt, and thirsting tor human blood. On this mournful day, which indignant history will relate with horror, died the following persons:?The Hon Jose Antonio Stbs. deputy from Maracaibo ; Joan Garcia and Francisco Argote, deputies from Caracas ; the Hon. Santos Miehelena was wounded by a Innce. Besides these, many others received many brumes, without counting persons who did not belong to the legislative body, who were killed. In this scene of bloodshed, the President of the Republic, showed himself triumphing in the scene. He wu? posted in the small squire of the building in a place of security, and ctus''d those deputies who supplicated for their lives, to be conducted to the government innntioii instead ! of permitting them to withdraw to their own ! homes. THK KNQUSH EMBASSY. A tnan of fatal influence in the misfortunes ot 1 our country, appeared a' the end of these scenes atiove described. It was Colonel Wilson, who went arm in Hrm with one of the assassins, General Diego O'Hara. All the conspirators were continually Kning in and coming out at the liuunt of the Riitish Embassy, viz : the Generals Monagay, O'Hara, and Santiago MarinoColonels Lugo and Austria, and to these was joined one of the moBt wicked of them all, namely, Dr. Thomas Joseph yanabrin, a fierce and treacherous inan, and in implacable enemy of his country. Colonel Wilson received ihern all with great familiarity ; with some of them he held secret conferences, which doubtless could not have beta conferences upon harmless subjects. Great notoriety innrked out this conduct of a man ungrateful for the hospitalities he has received, and one of those who has the chief hand in th-1 misfortunes of our country. A DKCREF OF TRIUMPH.

Surrounded with troop* and bayonets on hII sides, they were obliged either to "tie or help to Ciirry out the criminal intentions of the administration Under these constraints, they passed a decree of indemnity and indulgence for all the crimes of the conspiracy. By this sanf decree, the President is authorized to raise an armv ot 10,000 men, also to contract for a loan of a million of dollars; nnd within the next ninety days, to arrest individuiils tor conspiracy, in order thereby to enable the Kovernment to 'he indignation of those generous souls who, bring friends of their country and its laws, would otherwise hive risen up to punish crime and vindicate society from outrage, ferocity, and barbarity. riric aovkrn.\?Kvr ik foroh.

Caracas, 28th January, 1948. In my letter of 2tfh, 1 nave you come account of the political state r?f the country, and now I add these few linen in elucidation thereof. It appears that the att ick which was made on the Chamber of Representative#, by the people and militia, was provoked by a variety of circumstance*. In the first place, some 200 of the young men of the city had armed themselvea, und gone to the convent of St. Francis, in which the Congress was assembled, with the object o supporting the faction which was desirous of deposing the President. On the 24th, in the morning, Tomas Jose Sanavnia, the ministe, for the home department, went to the chamber with the President's message, when two of the faction threatened to take his life?one of them drawing a dirk, and the oth'-r presenting a pistol at him Upon this being known in the street, the people and a i>urt of the armed militia adv?nced to the ftoor of the Congress, when one of the parties from within fired and shot down one of the peopl", which so provoked tnein that a B^neVal uttack was mad'- upon the Chamber of Repre ;*ent ttives,with the result already stat'-d.

I believe I c in wuii safety assure you, that w? hall not b involved in :i civil war, for more than 15-lflths of'the whole country tire in favor ot (reneial M?nagas, and resolved in supporting mm Tiij oligarchy is, in my opinion, down forever, at least for many years. There are, however, a few individuals who think that General Paez will leod himself to a revolution against the government; but thos# who know him well, are convmcd th ?t he will never tarnish his glories by taking arms aj; tinat the government, lie is at present iu the interior of the country. If he should, however, be so I imprudent as to take up arms uaainst the aovernment, ther" is little douht his fall will be iccVitable.
