Wo are overwhelmed with important nud curious political intelligence of all kinds, bearing upon the Presidential election. Last evening a very amusing and interesting meeting was held in the Tabernacle, for the purpose of expressing burning sympathy, and of taking solid measures in favor of Irish liberty beyond seas. Distinguished orators and speakers from all the parties and factions round the country, gathered into the Tabernacle to tickle the naturalized and unnaturalized Irishmen ef New York. Senator Hannegan, the friend of General Cass, from Washington; John Van Buren, the great light of the barnburners; David Graham, the friend of Henry Clay; and Robert Kmmett, the supporter of the great unknown, besides two or three mayors and a large kitchenfull of aldermen, attended the meeting and spoke terribly for Ireland. It was a great ( meeting ; yet Queen Victoria, Lord John, and the British government, need not be alarmed?for the purposes of this demonstration in the New \ork Tabernacle look more to the ballot boxes of the | United States, than the cartridge boxes in Ire- 1 land. It was, in fact, a regular auction tor l'resi- | J .;_1 liwwifiwMi* 1 turn burners. were all there, bidding over each other for the Irish vote. The bargain will be knocked down and the purchaser known on the 7th of November. See report in another column. Our news from Philadelphia is also interesting. 1 The delegates to the whig convention are rapidly reaching that city. Great excitement begins to prevail. The friends of Clay and Taylor are in oj>en collision, and increasing in bitt"rness towards each other every day. It is now af- \ firmed that if Mr. I lay does not get the nomination j on the first ballot, he mill be dropped by his friends: and many of them declare that they will go for Scott, hut never for Taylor. By our correspondence elsewhere, it seems the 1 second choice of many of the Ohio and other Western delegates, is Scott. This is also the j choice of many in Western N?-w York. The 6ccond choice of the Massachusetts and other New England delegates, is supposed to be Taylor? , their first, Webster. It is also stated ihat four i of the Stnte delegations favorable for Clay, will, before going into any nomination, m.ike a confidential declaration to the convention, that if General Taylor be notninated, they will secede from the convention, and break up the whig party, sooner than lose the good chance there is now to elect Mr. Clay, through the weakness of the democracy, caused by the quarrel between the hunkers and barnburners j of New 1 >>rk. We have heard nothing lending to show that the convention will adopt tin' two-thirds rule. If it were adopted, Mr. Clay would probably be defeated on the first ballot. Webb and Greeley, of this city, are both in Philadelphia, moving heaven and earth, epaulettes and phalanxes, roast beef and galvanized squash, proof brandy and pure water, each in favor of his own man. Webb writes, it is reported, that Scott will be the compromise candidate, and that Clay and Taylor will neutralize each other, an Clay and Scott did in 1H4<), in favor of Harrison. The Wall street coterie are in extasies. According to all these ap|>carunces, the chances now are that Clay and Taylor will both be cheated und thrown overboard, and that General Scott may be competitor to General Cass. A terrible time is expected in Philadelphia. On the other side, the democracy are not idle. ?General Cass is coming north to New Y?rk, on his . way to Dstroit. Senators Benton, Allen, Foote and Houston are to accompany him a certain part of the ^ay. Also the barnburners hold their great meeting this afternoon in the Park. All the radical democracy is railed out?all the friends of the Wilmst proviso?all those who are in favor of th? colored races, from Africa or elsewhere. Placards have been issued callinir all the negroes out, to ! hear a great speech from John Van Huren. John ! spoke to th Irishmen lust night?he will speak to the Atrieanh this afternoon. If John can form a coalition or union between the Irish and the negro i races, he will work a grruter miracle than ever O'Connell, Bishop Hughes, or Pius the Ninth, j could do. The discovery of the philosopher's stone, or the squaring of the circle, will be to such a feat Tritlea light???ir The political news to-morrow will be intensely interesting. Wait and see.

Xc>t?Mt}wUiidit?g the firm *und taken by Lord lohn Kuseeil againat tnnoration and reform of very kind, and his adverseness to see England noving like tile r >t of the world, on the principle if conservatism, which he is hugging to death, the irospect i< ino?t favorable for a speedy organic :hange in the constitution and 1 iwa ot that country. The people of the United Kingdom have become tick and disgusted with the splendid and expensive jewgaws of royalty, and h ive evinced their determination of not only limiting that, the executive !?art of the government, but of accomplishing changes in the Legislature?which, when carried out. will produce the most beneticnl results, and deprive the aristocracy of almost all their influence. The matter whs first taken in hand by the Chartists, with wh se ultra notions, however, as they have been regarded, the middle classes of the people have 1 never agreed. The recent revolutions in Franc* and other countries, have manifested to all classes that England cannot keep still while those great changes are going on around her; and accordingly a project lias been set on foot by Mr. Hume, Mr. Cobden, j and others, to procure household suffrage, vote by ballot, triennial parliaments, and equal electoral districts. If these reforms be carried out, the aristocracy will receive a blow which will virtually de- i i'i nt uifin 01 an influence, ana place me govern- ' inent in the hands of the people. To prove this, it may be necessary to take a glance at the constitu- I ents of the present House of Commons. It com- j prises six hundred and fifty-eight members, three hundred and thirty of whom are returned by 3,127,- i 000 persons, and the remaining three hundred und j twenty-eight members are returned by the rest of ! ihe population, 23,S73,<?00. Thus, one portion of i the population has one member for every 9,400 persons, and the other one member lor every 73,000 persons. Household suffrage and equal electoral districts would,of course, destroy this inequality of representation. Again, of these 658 members, 267 are connected with the aristocracy, by birth or marriage. Of these, upwards of seventy are lords in name, and seventy are heirs to |>eerages. Now, when it is recollected that the House of Commons is, jmr exrrllenrc, the representative of the body, it is j easy to see how the people are represented. House, j hold suffrage will not return aristocrats, or lords, or peers to that house. It will return men of the people, who come from the people, and are identified with their interests; and thus the aristocracy in that house will be floored, and, through the reform, the influence of the House of Peers will be reduced to nothing ; for the House can withhold supplies, and in this way control the Peers?every bill for the outlay of money having to originate in j that house. It is to accomplish these reforms that Mr. | Cobden and Mr. Hume have taken the field; j and the assaults which Lord John Russell has al- ' ready made on these gentlemen, show how much he fears the accomplishment of the task which they have undertaken. There are others,'how- , ever, in the field, as well as Mr. Cobden and Mr. j Hume. The old Manchester party, with whom | the anti-corn-law league originated, have resolved i to form a new association upon the old basis. A 1 meeting was called, at which every actual working ! man of the late league attended, every one of whom | declared himself favorable to household suffrage, j vote bv ballot, triennial parliaments, and cuual I electoral districts. This new league is to co-opprate with the reform party, headed by Mr. limns und Mr. Cobden; and an effort is being made to ; unite reformers of all kinds in one grand league, to be called the National League, to be pledged not to cease agitating till what they contend for shall be accomplished. The work has already been commenced; for Mr. Hume, in the House of Commons. recently asked leave to introduce a bill embodying these changes in the fundamental constitution of the country. Lord John Russell opposed it in every shape, and committed himself against reform of every kind. He stands pledged ag linst all innovation of the kind proposed, as well as against curtailing the expenses of the government, although those expanses have, during the last year, exceeded the income of the mtion by about thr>-e millions of pounds sterling. He has also committed himself with the Irish, not only by his procuring the passage of the bill for the better security of the crown, but by his declaration that he would resist, as long as lie had breath in his body, any attempt to repeal tin union between the two countries. Under these circumstances, it is not to be wondered at that the general impression in England is, that Lord John Russell is not a cora,?etent man to be at the helm of State in the present crisis of affairs. He is assaulted on all sides, an ' find* no sympathy except from those who, like Louis Philippe a month before the revolution which tossed | him about on the English Channel in a fishing I smack, think they are secure from the people, and can ride over them rough-shod as much as they please. Indeed, there 19 every probability that the next steamer will bring us intelligence of his resignation, as Sir Robert Peel, it is known, has had several interviews recently with her majesty, at ) which arrangements were made for the organiza- ) tion of a new ministry, of which he is to be the , head. Sir Robert Peel is a remarkably ehrewd statesman?he is an attentive watcher ?f the rourse of public uffairs in his retirement. He sounds public opinion, feels the public pulse, and finds out what changes are demanded. If popular opinion is too ; strong to be resisted, he jumps into office, puts ; himself at the head of it, and instead of foolishly I resixtinsr its nroirress. he leads the van himself in ! reform, and turns th?- current into a legitimate channel. This haw been his favorite policy in times past, and we are confident that he is about to play the same game again. We may therefore look, at a very early day, for a change in the ministry, tho elevation of Sir Kobert Peel to power, and all the reforms which the state of the times and the wants of the |>eople demand, including household suffrage, vote by ballot, and sweeping financial reforms in every department of State. The aflairs of Ireland will of course o:uupy Sir Robert l'cei's attention, and there is good reason to supi>ose that he would be willing to extend these reforms to that country also; and we do not | doubt but that he will propose them, and endeavor | to head off the agitators. We doubt very mueh, however, if ihe people of that country would be satisfied with anything short of a repeal of the ^ union, and a domestic parliament. It has been i the desire of their hearts for a number of years, ' and they have been taught to believe in it as a i panacea for all the evils under which they labor. J In view of the state of affairs there, too, it would j not surprise us much if he brought in a bill to drop that country " like a hot potato," and thus end the matter. ' >n the whole, it is evident that Knijland is in the midst nt her labor pains. She is writhing and twisting in her ngonjr?she ih nbout to call 111 s new aerouWitur, Lord John Htissell not being ! Hijfticiently skilful, who, in nil probability, will 1 deliver her in safety, administer strong purgatives | to purify her system of the sores of aristocracy and ! extravagance which are seated in it, und set her j on her feet again, to repeat the operation when it i ii required for the well being of her children. It will be a greHt step, and a few repetitious of the treatment would make the government of that country virtually a republic, with a ministry as an executive. Naval Intki.lioknck.?The U.

Till (^:ll,l>'y.i'li|lll,.|Kl i'lHs, ?Kf ttamocraMo nojitih?V tor thr offlc^of President, is beginning 10 pay the penalty of' ihc position which he occupics before the people. His Whole public life will be searched, and every act ot omission and commission which has characterized it, will be glaringly brought forward, exaggerated, and commented upon severely, by hi-1 political opponents. In this respect, he is not so comfortably situated as his predecessor was under the same circumstances. After a searching inquiry, it was discovered that Mr. Polk never omitted to do anything which he ought to have done, and never committed an act which he ought not to huve committed. In fact, as a public man, he was comparatively unknown, and on that account escaped what is in store for General Cass.? This gentleman is not so fortunate. In the course of his public life, he has taken a very active part in politics, and has been generally looked upon as an aspirant to the Presidency. He has filled many important offices, nnd has been distinguished in the Senate of th** United States. It is but a few days since he received his nomination, and as courtesy required, he resigned his in tllA ^nnrn Tliia rmimnlinn la ottwKnlftii to a desire to shirk voting on the Wtlmot proviso question, in connection with tlie bill to make Oregon a territory. His letter declaring his inability to attend the River and Harbor Convention has been re-published in a number of whig journals, and the sentiments contained in the book which he published while minister to France, are all brought up in fragrant judgment him. Notwithstanding all these things, however, we apprehend that General Cass, as a statesman and as a President, is ns well qualified to discharge the duties of that office, as any man we know of belonging to any party. The nominee of the whig convention, whoever he may be, mtt-st of course expect the same kind of treatment. Ilis political opponents will investigate his past conduct in like manner, and bring up everything against him which they can lay their hands upon. This is fair, nnd no more than right. A man whose life cannot hear a searching inquiry of this kind, is not fit to be President of this great country. It only proves what a man may expect when he is nominated for that high office. We apprehend, however, that it will puzzle the political enemies of General Taylor, in case that distinguished hero be nominated, to find anything in his past life that will be of electioneering profit to them. They will have their labor for their pains. Mr. Clay has been canvassed too often to make it advisable to repeat the process, as far as lie is concerned. His career is tolerably well known in this country. Mkktino of thk Whio Convention.?The Whig National Convention for the nomination of candidates for that party, for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States, will meet in Philadelphia to-morrow, and, in all probability, they will get through their labors after a day or two's deliberation, and perhaps on the day. The public will soon know who is to be General Cass's opponent in the approaching struggle, and will be able to form some opinion on the contest, which will then commence in earnest. The struggle will be unquestionably great between the friends of Mr. Clay and those of General Taylor, for the nomination, nnd it may possibly end in the selection of some other candidate by that body. It is probable that the whole matter will be arranged in caucus before the regular organization of the Convention; and if Mr. Cluy liifs to be cast aside, it will be done in a very polite and gentle manner. Speculation, however, will soon be needless. We shall have the facts in a day or two. We shall take pains to present our readers with graphic and accurate reports of each day's proceedings, which we shall lay before them as enrlv as possible. , Foreign Affairs.?We publish the following notices for the benefit of parties interested :? Danish Coivii'Latk* Boston. U. S A.. Juno 2 1848?

Notice is herehy given to all Sardinian subjects, deserters. or any others, now liable to conscription, that His Majesty, by an ordinance dated 31st of >iarr>h last, and signed by his Royal Highness, the Prince Lieutenant. has been pleased to remit the penalties to which th*y have exposed themselves, in violation of existing laws, by leaving the country He graciously allows them to re-enter their ranks us soldiers, inviting thim to return to their respective provinces and participant in the pains and glories of their brethren, now engaged in liberating Italy, their country, from foreign occupation. S. Daco?hi, Acting Sardinian Con*ul?Jeneral Merchants will of course take heed of the one, and those who wish " to participate in the pains and glories of liberating Italy," will take notice of the other. Postal Ahrangemknts with I?m>i,and. ? The retaliatory postage law now before Congress will, undoubtedly, have the desired effect. The English people are taking alarm, and show a disposition to do justice in the matter of postal rates between the two countries. The case has been brought before Parliament in the shape of an enquiry of the head of the government, by one of the members. There is nothing like showing a stiff uppar lip to i irent Britain, in everything. Later from Vknkzi'ei.a.?We are in receipt of tiles of the ElPatriota, published at Caracas, to the 24th of April. They were brought to this city via Maracaibo, by a gentleman from that place, who very kindly sent them to this office. The news is not of any decided nature, but what we have, goes to show that Ptiez' t party is on the wane, and that Monagas is in ill* ascendant. A petition had l?'eii presented by the oligarclnst (Puez) party to Congress for |>ermissioni to concede an amnesty for all political circumstances which had transpired since the 2jth of Jnfiua ry. This amnesty depends on their taking the s ah til oaths of allegiance to the government. El Patriuta does not mention the fate of it. The punishment of death was about to Ik- abolished in Venezuela. From Maracaibo we l:aru that all wis conntrrnation and confusion. The government troops had arrived at Gracia, within eight miles of the city, and were expected momentarily to enter the town at the time our informant left. Whether Paez's party was in the right or wrong, it seems they got the worst of it We trust, though, that having thus proved their inefficiency, they will, for the sake of their distracted country, submit to a fair and honorable arrangement. From Dkmrkara.?The schooner Globe, ('apt. S-e!y, arrived yesterday, with accounts from l)emerara to the 22d ult. (lovernor Light and family embarked for Euro|?e on the IHth. Ife was succeeded in the administration of government by the Hod. Mr. Walker, formerly secretary. The importation of coolies to the colony has not proved ns advantageous as was expected; and the propriety of abolishing the system was argued before the Assembly on the Hth. Among some remarks on the subject, the following wus embodied ifi a report from Karl Giey to the Governor :? " As there had been no Application from any iiuarter for coolie* thl* seanon. the presumption wan the description of Immigrant* might he dl>peni>ei| with. It ?M also suggested whether tne bounty on the Introdaetlou of Immigrant* frnm Madeira might not 1> altogether discontinued. and the fund* provided fur immigration purpo*e*, be wholly appr<i>rl?ied to bringing Immigrants from Africa, who. according to l)r Bonyun's report, appeared to b? in every rt-Mpoct suited to the production of sugar."

The Bowery, ever faithful to the public, and well recognized promises not to allow itself to be exceeded by any establishment, catering for general approba- I t'.oii. Last night afforded to a good and discriminating f.ishionable assembly, of the drama-loving public, an intellectual treat, by the representation of the newly i revived melo-drama of "Ehrenstein," in which Mr. W. Marshall, as Count William, the usurper, nut ?nly did justice to the audience. but to the author and himself. by a spirited and scholastic delineation of bin interesting part, which was received enthusiastically, und which must b? witnessed to be appreciated. The subsequent entertainments were well received, and will bear repetition. The piece will be repeated this evening. Tiie Chatham?As usual, was. as "Mose" would say, a "crammer'' last night. " Chaos Come Again."' ' The Old Oak Chest."' "New York As It Is," and "Land Sharks and Sea (lulls were the ptoses selected for the occasion, and they were received with high favor?and so were the songs and dances. Were we to say that all New York will regret the absenco of Mose, and 'New York As It Is,'' we know our rupporters would be uuaninious, but, as we are promised a new drama of greut interest, lire shall anxiously await its production j and. if it succeed, as prodigiously as Us predecessor. It will make a "pile." as tho sporting men say. for this highly popular house. The drama of "Louise or the White Scarf." will bo presented this evening ; also. ! "New York As It Is,'" and "Wreck Ashore." { Casti.k Garden.?This vast house was well attended last evening, notwithstanding the unfavorable state of the weather. That could not damp the ardor of our citizens to visit this magnificent place of amusement. The performances all went off with great eclat, Madame Augusta in particular being received with the utmost enthusiasm. This most elegant danstuse whose symmetrical and elegant figure shows to such advantage in the graceful dances which she performs, certainly stands pre-eminent iu her profession. There is grace in all her movements and refinement and modesty iu i her dancing. She will perform again this evening in i several beautiful dances. We must not omit mentionI iug the dramatic performances. The new stage is now so convenient and well arranged that none can i complain of not seeing it. Holland, that inimitable i actor, and the rest of the company, will prove highly attractive, and we trust that Messrs. French and Hefser will reap a handsome harvest for their enterprise in thus beautifully arranging Castle Garden. NinLo'u?Astoh Place. Broadway.?The re-opening, last evening.of this fashionable place of amusement, under the able management of tho celebrated Niblo. though not favored with fine weather, was well attended. The house seemed to us as bright. M crowded, and as well arranged as it was under the Italian Opera, on one of its most elegant nights. Niblo has made i some very important alterations in this establishment; | ami not tile least, in such a country as ours, is an | j equality of seats. The third tier of Astor Place, which i had been by the silly management of the Italian man- I agers. separated from the first and second tiers of boxes. I is now counvcted with the others by two staircases, at the top of which the aeronaut amateur finds two bars, where he may enjoy a cool drink, and recover from the heat occasioned by travelling up. Nevertheless this place of amusement will be. during the present season, one of the coolest in the city. The situation of the bui'.ding (between Astor place and Eighth street) allows all the windows to be opened ; and. consequently. the draught is. and will ever be. as tine and certain as it was at Niblo's Garden, when the fragrant breezes were playing among the ringlets of the lovely ladies who used to patrouize the garden. The Viennoise Danscuses wero the first attiaction presented by Niblo to the public. No doubt, these bewitching children will make a great sensation there, and fill the treasury of the manager. The English company for vaudovilles and comedy, is composed of the most clever actors of Ntw York?Messrs. Chippendale. Wnlcot. and John Sefton. Mrs. Maeder. the pretty Kate Horn. Miss Roberts. Mrs. Henry, and others. Niblo's Astor Place will be opeu every night, and. no doubt, its success will go on increasing. It is useless to add that the staircase and lobbies have been furnished and embellished with splendid trees aud flowers. It is the second volume ef Niblo's Garden. ChhuttS Mijutrkli ?There is an opera called L'Elisiru d'Amour,"' or the Elixir of Love," wherein one Doctor Dulcamara?we think Is the name?works wondors bv giving people this wonderful elixir. We think Christy's folks must have got a demijohn of it on

hand, as the people of New York do run after them in a most remarkable manner. Night after night do crowds assemble to hear them, and so it will continue for months to come, we feel certain. Stranorers arriv ing in town ought to visit them the first evening. Banvaru'* I'anor am i ?This great work in an attractive as ever.

Fleury Jolli. arrived in New York on Sunday morning last, from New Orleans. It will be remembered that M. Dubreuil belonged to M. Davis's French operatic company. We hope to have soon an opportunity of hearing the applause he will undoubtedly receivc at the first concert in which he will ving. French Link of Steamers from Havre to New Orleans.?The following is a translation of a communication written by M. Masson to a merchant at New Orleans:? " Whilst I remained in Havre, I became acquainted with M. Berthelot, with whom I went to Paris. and arrived there at the time of the revolution. We fought together for the sake of liberty. I was afterwards introduced into a cluh. where I became acquainted with several members of the provisional government. M. Arago. minister of marine, to whom 1 was particularly recommended, was kind enough to ask me questions upon the tnpographical position of the mouths of the Missi.sippl, and up?n the feasibility of establishing a line of steamers between Havre and New Orleans. I ! answered the best I could, conscious as 1 was that this { enterprise would be very advantageous. My opinion was tlint the steamers ought not to draw more than thirteen feet of water, and not be built ever "iOOO tons; that the crew ought to be chosen among the officers anil sailors of the government; and finally, that it was necessary that steamship* should be free of all duty to the custom house, as are men-of-war. " Messieurs Mnrrast and Ledru Itollin, who were present at our conversation, complimented mo and assured me that thoy shared my opinion on that subject: that the government thought to establish the line voted under Lonls Philippe, and that just after the convocation of the national convention, an appropriation would he proposed in order to put. a* soon as poMible, that line into operation " I therefore believe that New Orleans will toon be connected with Havre, by a line of transatlantic steamers. and soon become the rival of New York and Boston.

Hitherto, this might have been deemed oit a doubtful theory in the opinion of thepresent age; but '>>* since the banners of national independence have 8 been unfurled on the Pius IX.. all doubt has of vanished away. In fact, the history of the past has ofrecorded. in her imperishable fatli, this truth, which t the present is but splendidly confirming. When the *cc mighty Attila. that " scourge of Cioif' was thundering cit; at the gates of Rome, was he not faced and repul-e.1 ' by the Papal power ? That power also drove back tbu sec Moors of Africa, whon they threatened to overspread cot ull Kurope. That ppwer opposed, and at length trium- 1 phautly rolled back the tide of Moslem invasion which am menaced the classic soil of Italy with total inundation. 1 That power withstood the violence, and curbed tho u,,; despotism of the Kmperors during the feud* of the I middle ages.

And his own benevolent mea- tar sures, his consistent and unMl?rl?!;oonduct through- lte: out. have proved that he n^cans what he proclaims. If he hesitated to declare a direct and offensive war agaiist Austria, on his own official responsibility, this 1 only proves the exalted view he takes of his spiritual cal supremacy as head of the Catholic Church; breath- am Ing peace and charity towards that very people whose dct temporal dominion In Italy he himself, as an Italian ord prince and patriot, was the first to oppose and destroy, yei Ills position was one of extreme delicacy, and neces. 1 sarlly plunged his great heart In perplexity and sor. ho? row.
