John Van Baren< The recent arrangements negotiated at Washington between the interests of John Van Buren, of New York, with his heavy fisted barnburners laughing at his back, and James K. Polk at Washington, with his ninety thousand officeholders in one breeches pocket, and his fifty millions of spoils in the other breeches pocket, are beginning to assume an important shape in this State, and will soon spread throughout the Union. As one of the leading movements of the day, tending to shadow forth the policy of Mr. Polk and the democracy, and looking sternly to the nsxt Presidency, we give in our columns the important proceedings, resolutions, and Bpeech of Mr. Van Buren, recently passed and delivered at the democratic convention held in Columbia oounty, in this State. These proceedings, at this important crisis of the Presidential question, will attract the attention of not only New York, but of the whole Union, and a large slice of Mexico. They will, probably, be followed, to a greater or less extent, throughout the Northern States, and will have an effect on the South and West of a very important character, in all future proceedings of a Presidential character in the democratic ranks. Even they will not be without effect on the whig party. It is very easy to see from the resolutions passed at this convention, and the sentiments promulgated by John Van Buren, that the barnburners of New York have already got the upper hand of the hunkers, and that in a short time, they may probably swallow them up completely, head, horns and hoof, previous to their admis inn a romtlov ^pUrrotao frt\m V?nr Vntlr in (hp Baltimore convention. These resolutions are considerably tamed down of their fierceness on the slave question, to what the preceding ones were some time ago. The Wilmot proviso now assumes the old Jeffersonian eround of the "ordinances of 1797, a sort ot proviso in its day, a very natural and harmless landmark, which was the line of separation between the local institutions of the South, and the natural sentiments of the North, during the first Presidencies of this republic. It Bi-ems to be the opinion, from what we can learft of ttiebarnbuners of New York, that the position which they assume is not intended to interfere so much with the constitutional rights of the South, as regards the question of slavery in that region, as it is to make a strong opposition against the sectional and ultra grounds put forth by Mr. Calhoun, and still held by him and his adherents in the Southern States. It 's true that the barnburners make a good deal of noise about the extension of those restrictions of 1787, to the new territory acquired from Mexico; but it is not to be tupposed that the distinguished philosophers who constitute the leaders of the barnburners of New York, are so ethenal in their composition as to feel a deeper interest for the thick-lipped negro in the wilds of California, than they do for a fat and rosy portion of the fifty millions of spoils in the hands of Mr. Polk, either now or during his next term of office. We are prepared, therefore, to see, as we have already intimated, from information which we received at Washington, that a league is now complete between the interests of Mr. Polk and those of the barnburners of New York?that the re-union of the democratic party in this State has begun under favorable auspices, and that the P old hunkers will be driven into the field, as they were in former days, nolen$ voient, to be f*d and to be silent. It is the opinion of the leaders at Washington, that Mr. Polk and hisfriends intend to quiet the appetites of these old hunkers with a portion of the spoils, without allowing them to make any disturbing entrance into the Baltimore convention; while they will, at the same time, is order to gratify a point of honor contended for by the barnburners, permit them to take seats and agree on the same common ground ol action, so as to go into the Presiden. tial contest with their principles and sentiments on their escutcheon. We see in these resolutions how cordially Mr. Polk is endorsed, with all his opinions and doctrine*; and the probability is, that this is merely the commencement of the movement that will end in the re-nomination and re-election of Mr. Polk, if it can be accomplished against the disjointed forces of the whigs, as at present indicated. mr. route proapecta ior rr-nomioation and reelection, are, therefore, looking up every day, and Mr. Polk himself deaervea all the credit of outwitting and duping all the other democratic candidates?Gen. Caaa, Mr. Buchanan, Mr. Woodbury, and all the others who, good, eaay aoula, were thiaking that their frienda, by their Stata nominations, were accompliahing wondera tor them. Mr. Polk now only wants aome good isf ues, fresh and new, or old ones revamped, to eater the field, and to take the pu In the meantime, we recommend the politicians of all parties to read the proeeedi ngs of the Columbia county convention, with the speech of John Van 1 Hnren, as throwing a great and important solar j light on the movements looking to the great | question of the neit Presidency. hi Washington sailed yesterday from the Bay, at 12 o'clock, with tour additional paaaengera, and 950,000 more apecie on freight. Her mail ww alao quite large. . ? . -<4*^ OrtRA amd Fashion ?There wu a meeting of subscribers to the Italian Opera at the Aftor House Theatre laat evening, an account of which appears under our theatrical head in this day's paper. What a melancholy denouement to all the brilliant efforts of fashion and gentility, at the beginning of the season, to establish an Italian Operm permanently among us Heretofore the opera has furnished receipts enough, if properly managed, to enable the vocalists and musicians to cat beef steak and plum pudding. This season its proceeds have been appropriated, in too great an extent, to defray the demands of proprietors and others who had the control, without regard to the poor singers and musicians, who have done all the work, and made all the money A subscription Opera in New York will hardly succeed, as a system; it is too exclusive, too aristocratic, too anti-republican in ita tendencies and results. If the company at the Astor House theatre had opened on ita own account, under a skilful manager, at any of the ordinary theatres, they would have met with encouragement enough last season to pay them generously,and they would have had, on such a plan, Jar more success than they have had under the subscription system The short trials made at Boston and Philadelphia prove the truth of these remarks; for there they succeeded measurably, and met with the general patronage of the public. The experiment of a subscription syatem does not suit our democratic city, and we may now say, our democratic age. Let Benedetti, Truffi, Rapetti, and the other singers and musicians, form an organization of their own, engage another theatre, and conduct themselves with skill and propriety, and there is no doubt they would receive more money, more bouquets, and far greater fame, than ever they could do by the subscription system, where their dependence is upon men who by accident are this year a little richer than their neighbors, but who next year, or next half year, may be bankrupts, and reduced to a few hundreds, instead of thousands per annum Grand Ball in Favor of thi French Ripublic, at thr Park Thratr*.?Last evening, a grand ball for dancing and polking?not for firing bullets and making barricades?was given at the Park, in celebration of the French revolution, and in view of the extraordinary efforts of the patriots of that republic to organise a constitu tion and government which may last till the day of judgment. There was a magnificent display of beauty, elegance, philosophy, politics, rich dresses, splendid decorations, and fine dancing A full account of the whole is given in another portion of our columns. This ball and celebration presented some curious scenes, no less interesting and important than the conjunction of an ex-President of the United States and a consul general ot the French republic?the one having been unfortunately left out in the last revolution in the United States, and the other hoping still to be retained in office, in spite of the revolution at Paris. We are no great admirers of political movements, considering them generally as coarse, vulgar aad common-place. But such political movements as assume a beautiful complexion, ornamented with bright eyes and smiling countenances?such as were shown last evening?have something attractive, which even an angel or arch-angel might contemplate from heaven.? We believe now, that the chances are considerably increased, both for the restoration of ex-President Van Buren to the Presidency of the United States, and for the continuation of Chevalier De la Forest in the French consulate, under the new republic, including even all the stars and ribbons which the royal governments may have given him during the last thirty years. We wish it may be so, for we feel good-natured, benevolent, and kind to all political unfortunates in these benign mornings and evenings of the sweetest season of the year. We advise our lady readers to peruse the description of the ball. The politicians may skip over it, and treat themselves, instead thereof, to the excellent speech of John Van Burei, who, one of these days, is going to be a greater and brighter man than his father ever was or could be. Father Mathew Coming Over.?Father Mathew, the great temperance advocate of Ireland, will come over here in September next. A letter has been received From him by a distinguished gentleman in this city, by the last steamer at Bofton, which states his intention of coming in the month we have named. He will not go to Rome, nor has his visit to Rome influenced his delay. A severe influenza has been the cause of the difficulty He wishes before he dies and goes to heaven, to complete the regeneration of ten millions of people, on whom he will have conferred the temperance pledge. He has reached about six millions and a half in Europe, and will try for the remainder of the ten millions in this country, and then take a glass of Croton water and die contentedly. If we can procure his letter, we shall publish it to-morrow or the next day, or the next day, or the day after all these, or at least before the Presidential election, and perchance before Mr. Polk's second inauguration. The Ooean Mails ?Our merchants had an opportunity of sending replies to their letters received by the Acadia at Boston, by the Washington, which left this port yesterday for Southampton and Bremen. They could not have done so, if Mr. Pomeroy, of the Boston post office, had not run an express to this city with the Acadia's mails. The public are, therefore, under obligations to Mr. Pomeroy, as much as the press is We received a copy of the latest Liverpool paper from Mr. Pomeroy, much earlier than we received it in any other way. Local News.?In consequence of the great importance of the foreign news, which has become so -exciting recently, we have not been able to give our usual miscellany of looal intelligence. To-day, however, we devote our paper to this kind of news, and to-morrow we shall publish another assortment of European intelligence. We shall endeavor, at all times, to let nothing of interest, either foreign or domestic, occur without the knowledge of our readers. Harln* Affairs.

Tbla is not the efferveacenoe or unreflecting enthusiasm ; It la not the feeling of iaoleted portions ot out population ; It ia the honest and abiding oonviction ot every one who nOoioea in the name of Amerlea.

Howoau it be otherwise? While every throne in Europe ia tottering, oar eonatitution ia unshaken i While every aoolal system of the old world rucka to Itr centre, we are enjoying an almoat absolute tranquillity ' How can we do otherwise than aacribe the blessings ui our condition to th?t free and equal government whloh your anoeatora assisted oura to obtain? How oan we do otberwiae than rejoice that those blesainga are no lenger to be confined to the weatern hemisphere, but are to be abated by those of other rao?a and of other tonguea ? We do not dtaguiae from ouraelvea. air, that the firmament of the future la ov?roaat with fear.aa well aa lighted up by hope.

But we confidently truat that Europe may be aaved from war, that wot at foe to freedom; and that tbe nationa of the old world may be allowed, is peaoe aad tranquillity, to per- ; feet their new icatltutiona. Nor, air, must you think ua iaaenailile to the commerolal diaaaters that follow ia the train of the liberal movement In Europe. Our hearts bleed for the guiltless victims of ths follies and erlmes of others But we console ourselvea by the reflection that liberty ia never to be attained without cost; and that oommeree, although It may be the first victim of the early struggles of freedom, ia, as we aee in the irrepreaalble activity and enterprise of our people, the chief gainer by the triumphant reault. Such la the beautiful aystem of compensation by whloh tbe government of the world ia carried on Wo look beyond tbe present?perturbel, menacing, anxious as it U? and we aee the dawn of a new day, dreamed of by enthualaata, promised by philosophers, sang by poets; but hlthsrto only hoped for iu the vague distance, bj the reflecting mind.

We do not blind ourselves to the ditlicultles and dangers that yet surround the path of Liberty in the old world. The accumulated frauds, the numberlets oppressions, the multlfarloua evils entailed by centuries of aristocratic rale, oannot, alas ! be overlooked. But our hope Is not stronger than our oonfldenoe that the Intelligence and devotion of the French people will enable them to surmount all the obstacles that lie before them, and that a government of order, equalitv and iuatioe will rule the beautiful land that at re tones from the Mediterranean to the Britlah Channel; the land that bae made suoh nergetic struggles for liberty, and of which the hones have been hitherto so ornelly blaatsd.

I have had the honor to reoeive your friendly letter inviting me to aeelit In a farther demonstration of the delight with which the cltlisns ol New York have received the intelligence of the reeent decisive eventa in Franc*, and the profound interest with whioh they observe the maroh of freedom in the old world. There oould loarcaly ariie any occasion for a display of public sentiment in which It would afford ma more pleasure to participate, than that whioh you hava presented, and I oannot thank you too earnestly for the kind and flattering terms in whioh you hava asked me to do so. If 1 had remained in the oity until the day which you bave properly designated for the performance of the ceremony, or if I could return to it without Interfering with in MspensaMe engagement* at home, 1 oertainly rhonld not, in a case so peculiar, have permitted the rule I have prescribed to myself, in regard to public meetings, to prov^nt a compliance with your request But If my name can in any form serve to advanoe your praiseworthy ebject, I commit the use of it to your discretion, without hesitation or reserve, well satlafied that it will only be employed in the promulgation of sentiments which are common to all of us. it would here at leeit be superfluous to say anything in support of the justice and propriety of the heroic and successful efforts of the people of Kranoe for the overthrow of arbitrary power. No one entertaina a doabt upon that subjeot. and it is to the probable oboncee of their succeeding in the establishment ot a free and stable government, tha- the hopes and fears of the American people are chiefly directed. Considering the matter in thin nepeot, It is not surprising that the dlsaatrous and cruel disappointments of the past should have impressed the minds of so many of our citizens with at least some degree of despondency in regard to the foture. It la my happiness to be free from any serious apprehension upon this point; and the very circumstances whioh afford crcu ids or alarm to others, are the sources of my ooufldenoe. The people of France have paaaed thiougkalmost every ebange in respeot to their form of government that is known to mankind For a long and dreary aucoesiion of agss, they were the abjeet subjects of an abeolute monarchy Their first great struggle for Independence, though successful in breaking down the monarohy, left them, in consequence of the character of the ttbi's In which it waa made, and their own follies, exposed to the evils ofanarohy. From thia condition they emerged only to beoome the subjset of the splendid despotism of Napol'on, which brought them a rloh harvest of military glory, but neither prospsrlty nor happiness. Upon the overthrow of that most magnificent fabrio of human power, they were, by the power et the sword, made the suhjests of a restored dynssty. Driven by its tyranny to a forcible re assertion of their natural rights, they once more expelled the governing family of the Bourbons, but with no greater or batter result*, than to confide their destinies to a seion of the same general stock undsr the delusive idea that adequate security for their liberties could be obtained by a limited monarohy, snr raundftd ny wnat tney chose to regard as republican ln titatlons One* mora deoslved and oppressed, the patriots and heroio working classes cf that great country, have, by an effort, incomparably the moit luminary and effl aient that the world ha* ever witnessed, overthrown the vast military power of the reigning monarch, and expelled him and hli family from Franoe. This great work accomplished, they have turned th?ir undivided attention to the establishment of a republic, under olrenmatancer, for the first time, favorable to suooeea. The unprecedented unanimity with which this movement has been seoonded bv all classes, and the extraordinary ability and dlsoretton with which the preliminary stepe towards the great object in view have been taken, satisfies ma that tue conviction Is as gene rslin France, as it is oertainly wellfonndod, that If their present attempt to establish eff-jotual guarantees for their liberties tbould lail through any r^ultof theirs, they must hereafter be regarded by all mankind as being, for some cause, disqualified for the maintenance of free institutions. That a nation so long, so widely, and so justly distinguished In arts and In arms, whoee philosophers and statesmen have for so many centuries commanded the respect and excited the admiration of ths world, and whioh at the present time abjunds in great and good m?n, can, at th's dsy jnsily Inour the reproach of n political dereliction so revolting, is what I oannot believe No people, ancient or modern, have, at any period of their respective historic*, bed stronger inducements presented to them for wise and prudent action. Not only will th-ir own welfare, and in all probability that of their posterity tor generations to come, be affected for weal or for woa by their present conduot, tut surrounding nations also oannot fail to regard their future condition as involved in the good or bad success wiih which tha people of Franoe improve their superior advances towards the accomplishment of s common object?the establishment of rr?e governments They oannot but know that tha attention of all mankind Is directed towards them ; nor will tbev ba unmindful that cvsry uncalled for and merely faotious outbreak of popular feeling, as wall as every failure in duty on the part of their public man?whilst they cause pain to tbelr friends abroad, will at the same time gladden the hearts of those whose prospeots of future dominion depend upon the failure of the French people In the great work tltey have underlak?nwho hope to And In the developements of the future what they will rr^aid as a renewed demonstration that tha French nation is not capable of governing Itself, and can only exist under the oontrol of n master It is not in human naturo that a ooDcededly great nation can so act as to realise this degrading anticipation. That they did not sucoeed heretofore In the matntenenee of the republic, doss not nutterially detract from their present prospects The difference in the character of their first and last confl!ots for the overthtow of royally In Franoe, seems to Illustrate Increased proba1 ility of their present suocess.
