" We are in I he Midst of a Revolution." " We ur.s in the midst of a Revolution." Its tendency a t-ingle day may determine. The simple question i>>, the consolidation or the dissolution of the whig parly. i The preliminary scenes to the Baltimore convention weru tame and insipid, compared with the stirring and portenouH doings . of this day in Philadelphia. From early .lawn to midnight, this emporium of the broad brims and sliud-b -Hied coats, has presented a field of excitemont. calculated to give one a faint idea of the political euervocence in l arts. on the day or tne Invasion >>f the National Assembly by tho auti-renters of tiie Fr?*B''h capital. Detachments of the different State delegations met in their respective rooms at the hotels, counted noses and compared votes, while the body of the lobby meinbors, the outsiders and the lookers-on. filled up the vestibules ami entrances to the public houses, keeping up ti well sustained fire of indignation between the Taylor uieu on tho one bide, and the combined elements of anti-Taylorisin on the other. We had at one hotel a narrow escape from a row between tho old hunkers and j the barnburners of the whig family; and everywhere, I (the most manifest evidences of the implacable hostility : of tho Clay men to Taylsr and his advocates, were fur- J nished to the disinterested spectator gratuitously. After diuner, the democrats, in view of the expected i arrival of Geueral Cass and suite, turned out in strong force, in front of Joues's Hotel, and at tho steamboat lauding. There are about three hundred whigs quartered at Jones's; and the fact that the democratic nominee and his extensive Congressional suite, from Washington, were coming right in among them, awakeued no small degree of indignation; but when the democratic nominee and his company came up, and were ushered into the hotel amid the triumphant shouts of the unterrifled democracy in the street bei low, the wrath of the whigs, who constituted at least one half of the five thousand people on Chestnut street, caused them for a while to look on and listen to Cass, Allen, iieutou and Stevenson, in profound inipassiveuess and chagrin; but when Geueral Houston was callcd out, and he was proceeding to speak, the whigs near the steps plucked up a little revenge, and ; commenced a series of hurrahs, which, for some moments, extinguished all other sounds. The democracy bogan at once a rapid movement toward the point of the disturbance; but, fortunately, the cheering was suspended, and a miscellaneous collision was prevented. General Houston was permitted to close, and with a closing good evening of lien. Cass?which, in order that all might hear for half a mile round, was repeated in behalf of the democratic nominee by Senator Allen?the assemblage was dismissed. The mass of the people in the streets then moved down to Independence Square, where the Taylor meeting was about coming olT. At nine o'clock the gathering was tremendous : and of its pioceedings one of our associates will faithfully advise you. The letter of Hon. Keverdy Jonnson. pulling down General TayWr as a no party man. and as the President, if elected, who would appoint men to olllce without reference to their party principles.so that they were capable and honest, was received very coldly, clearly indicating that the uieetiug was very largely made up of whigs and democrats. At 12 o'clock at night, a band of music came up to Jones' to serenade Gen. Cass, and a few thousand people were instantly collected on the spot. Mingled cheers, hisses and groans, were given for Cass and liutI lor. for Henry Clay. for the whig nominee, and for the democratic party?while tho friends of Oeu. Taylor. Gen. Scott, Gen. Cadwaladcr. and James K. Polk, gave them, respectively, three hurrahs. The band at length struck up "Vankce Doodle." and were cheered unaniliinli^le Tin* music tllon litfl.

Was the meeting to be broken up (No. no.) Shall it go on ? (i'es. yes ) Mr Rrown asraln took Ihe stand and had n i proceeded far before music from another bind disturbed him. The Kensington boys appeared in view, with their banners. The shouts of the outsiders were j answered by the shouts of the insiders ; and here the I boys again gave a specimen of their proficiency in whistling, and bad manners, nnd rowdyism. The con- | fusion became greater as the Kenslngtonlans entered the ?c|uare. The baud first on the ground gave them a salvo a clashing of cymbals, a blowing of fife*, trombones, and beating <"if drums, which was courteously answered by the musicians who had just arrived. In another portion of the square, which the monarch who fainted on smelling a rose would not have selected for a gathering, was more fun than at the main stand, and here we removed in order to lie edified "Ha. ha! Hu. hit! wh-wh-o-o!'' were the fir-t sounds that fell upon our ear.

Philadelphia, Juue 7,1848?1 o'clock P. M. Reception of Gen. Can?Delightful Trip to Wilmington?Enthusiasm of the Demnci a y. By invitation, your correspondent made one of a largo and pleusunt party of democrats, who left this j city for Wilmington (Del.) yesterday morning, at 10 | o'clock, iu the beautiful steamboat Wave, Capt. Devre. j in company with the committee appointed to escort ! Gen. Lewis Cass and suite to Philadelphia; and it was 1 my intention, had we got back in time for tho afternoon mail, to have giveu you a full and particular description of the excited animated scent:) which cha- , racterised tho excursion. But our movements were retarded somewhat by our stay at Wilmington, arising , from the tenacity with which the citizens of that flue town held on to Gen. Cass and his party; and as the Penniylvanian has a very minute account of the stirring eveuts, and they will thus be to you, iu extemo. a twice-told tale, 1 will simply run lightly over them, throwing in suoh pepper aud salt seasoning, by way of novelty, as happens to come uppormost iu my mind. 1 found on board the boat a large number of distinguished I'hiladelphians, among whom I will particularise the Hon. lico. M. Dallas, Vice President of the United States: Hon. Benjamin Champneys. Attorney General of Pa.; Hon. Chas. J. Ingorsull. M. C. from Philadelphia Co.; Col. John R. Thompson, of N. J.; Judge Pringle Junes, of Philadelphia; Dr. Geo. F. Lehman. Postmaster of Philadelphia; Cel. James Page, collector of Philadelphia; Col. Joseph K. Snowden, treasurer of the mint; Gen. John Davis, surveyor of the port cf Philadelphia: Judge Ephraim Bauks, of Miftiin Co., Pa.; Col. Petriken, Dep. Sec of State of Pa.; Gen lioorgo M. Keim, marshal ot east, district of Pa.; John K. Kord, Esq., of Ky.; lion. John F. belsterling. -May > r of N. L., Philadelphia Co.; Dr. West, of Pittsburgh: Alexander E. Miller. Es<(.. of Ohio; J. Glancy Jones; Lsq . of Philadelphia Co. Iu addition to these wo had tho majority of the Philadelphia Committee of Reception, and tile splendid baud of the Philadelphia City Grays, lo4 by an accomplished artist named ltoeieg. Our trip down the river was charming; and what with the life of the party on board, the ravishing music of the baud, and the crowds who were collected at the ditfereut stoppiag places on the route. I was carried away from the pains and pangs of a day-laborer in the Held of ink and types, and roamed free aud happy in au atmosphere of intoxicating contentment. The greatest attentions were paid me by the captain of the boat, as well ns by the Committee of Reception, but particularly by Colonel Robert M Leo. the chairman, aud Cols Robert F. Christy aud Wm. J. Leiper. 1 am III.-U uuun Ui/Ii^lhliuua tu kJi. IJCUIIIUII, lilt; linn* Jtlihlliiaster of thin city, and to other gentlemen on board, whose names 1 was not no fortunate as to obtain. When we arrived at Wilmington, wo found a crowd of citizens on the wharf, and among thein those active and efficient democrats, Colonel John W. Forney, of the I'ennsylvanians, Win. J. Lehman, and Kdward A. I'eunimau. E-qs.. gentlemen who hud been sent on in advance, from Philadelphia, to act with the Wilmington Committee, in regard to the reception of the dietinguished guest who was now approaching us with all the speed of that agent of locomotion, which, next to G id's lightning, bears away the palm. I pas- over the arrival of General Cass, of the cheers at. the ear', of the immense masses who surrouuded him as he took his seat in a carriage preoared for him by the V\ iluiiugton Committee, of his passage through the crowded streets to the Town Hall, where ho wa hailed, af he entered, with three times three and a rer cat; and will barely say, that every thing was mo^t tlutieriug to his claims, as a soldier and a statesman: as it was also to the distinguished gentlemen who accompanied hint from Washington. among whom, by the way. we noticed. General Houston. Colonel Benton, ind Senators Koote. Allen, and Bright. James A. Baysrd jr. Ksq . nmde th" welcoming speech, and Gen. Cass replied most happily; the people cheered; the music struck up " lla'l Columbia,'* aud then loud calls were made for General Houston and Colonel lientou. and Senators Allen. Koote. und Bright, all of whom responded in the bsst manner. Colonel Denton and General 11 >u?ton were particularly honored by the masses, and both seemed to be in null pleased ns could be wished, if one might judge from the s.niles which incessantly wreathed their laces. After a bouquet bearing a beautiful democratic sentiment. from the hands of Miss Wolfe, a Delaware oenuty, was presented to General Cass by Colonel J.

Speeches were made, after a splendid collation. by Mr. Rogers and Col. K. M. Lea. the one taking leave <>i General Cass on the part of Delaware, nnd the other welcoming him to I'euusylvaHia. General Ca?s replied with evident foding. and well he might he excited with such eloquence as marked the efforts both of Mr. Kojjers and Mr. Lee. 1 took notes of their speechi-s. aud inteuded to send them to you, but was prevented by the circumstance above noted.

We arrived at Dock street I wharf at about 0 o'clock, which was crowded with at least ten thousand people. Here there was *imh ? shouting. that it seemed. as if tho very ikies would tumble down upon us ; and General Cars with hi* mite, were escorted to quarters at Jones' Hotel, followed by. I should think two-thirds of Philadelphia and its districts. Touching subsequent movements, you will be furnished with them by the Doctor.'' who I see is here, and who as usual goes about with paper and pencil handy. Kidding you an adieu, and without time to say a word of tho beautiful confusion which pervades the great whig party, I continue to subscribo myself, BROWN, Ja. I riiit.ADti.riU4, June 7,1848. The streets are thronged with strangers, and every steamboat and railroad car that arrives here is filled with fresh comers. The Daltlmorean* are strongly represented, and ono or two steamboats are still on their way via the canal. They bring with them banners and music, and seem determined to have a procession. whether or no. Only a tithu of tho eager applicants can obtain access into the Museum building, and very few of those who do get in. can see or hear; and tje constant struggle going on te obtain better places, produces such confusion, that the voices of the speakers can with difficulty bo heard. Inconsequence of this, It is expected that the galleries will have to he cleared before the business of the convention can be carried on properly. I need not refer to the transactions of the convention. us your special reporters will furnish ampin details. It is Iwlluved that the Taylor stock is above par still, because the proposition that the Clay temporary President should appnint the committee of Oiie (Votn each State to select permanent oflleors. was voted down, and each Stato allowed to select her own member for | the committee. A proposition to ttrike from the said j committee the delegate from Louisiana chosen hy the ; delegating from that State to represent Texas, was altto ; negatived. As Louisiana Is set down for Taylor, this, I of course, carries Texas along with her; and. as no dolegate was present from Texas, the < lay men wouH j rather have had that State unrepresented. These are not actual tests, but still they may he considered as straws to show which way tho wind blows. A democratic mass meeting was to have been held this evening, in front of the Kxchango. at which all the distinguished congressional orators that accompany < a*s. were to have spoken; but since noon, a placard ha* been Issued, postponing the meeting until Saturday evening, on account of the departure of General ' ass and his party, this afternoon, at 4^ o'clock, for New York This change has probably been caused by the dlssentions in your city between i the hunkers and barnburners General < ass and Senator Houston, received the congratulations of their fellow-cltiiens in Independence Square, tills morning. Together they shook hands with many thousands of th? unterrlflud democracy. w ro W YORK. THURSDAY J DESCRIPTION OK THE OPENING OF THE CONVENTION.

Those who have coat tails are dosoribing all kinds of angles and antics with these necessary appendages. while those who have none, are making their way to front seats in the gallery with more celerity than grace.

Sih?Your just criticism on th? recent " IriMi >lenonstratiou at the Tabernacle," bait elicited the warm ?t gratitude of tln> true friends of Ireland in thin Ity. Yon may permit me to nay a few word* to the 'riends of Ireland all over thin continent In the name connexion, no that In common with other*, with whom or Home time punt I have been engaged in the cause if Ireland in this eity, I may eicape the juitt exeoraion which must follow proceedings such an those fhich have drawn forth your rebuke. A few months before the newH of the French revoluion reached them shores, a number of young man in bin city determined to make an effort to awaken a tew Kpirit in behalf of Ireland, and in doing no, to >revcnt its being made a tool for political knaves of >ny or all parties. To effect this, one of their pritnay rules was. that no political office-holder or seeker< hould take any part in their organization This body >f young men were called the Repeal Confederation. Joon after their ttrst demonstration, the gUrioti* news rora h'ranee broke in upon these shores, and the body illudcd to publicly dissolved, to form In common with ill other friends of Ireland a confederation to aid the icopin in ireiauu in eneciing?noi repeal. oui an iverthrow of the monarchical form of government, aud to establish a republic. The name desire wan manifested to shield the new movement from politioal degradation; for there can he 10 baser turpitude than to mix up the affairs of a struggling people with the politic* of a free and indeicndent people, and to make sympathy and patriotism he bait upon political fishing hooks. With diflliulty we succeeded in defeating the hungry pnliicians of all parties who besot us. All these gentlenen were ready to weep ten dollar bills into our reasury?provided only, that wo would receive into aur ranks their prominent spouter*. and hold ourmeetngs in such places as would bring the Irish vote to jear upon their various office-socking pretensions. The name of John Van Huron, on the one hand, was prei ented to our committee to be an invited speaker, and the name of David Graham, on the other side, as a Bountorpoise. Both names were rejected, as loaders In American politics. Thus we were proceeding until wo had gained to the cause of Ireland the sympathy and attention of the loading press of the oountry, as well is of all good men in ail parties. This policy, however, would not suit such men as Eugene Casserly. J. T. Doylo. and Charles Shea, young men who. however honorable in private life, are (louperate men in the Held of politics. They saw that to organize an Irish body in this country, who would tolerate no political juggling?who would be prepared to resist any attempt to array the Irish people in America is a political party?would forever crush their hopes of office ; and thereupon they set to work to organize an association, which, from its imposing appearance, would re-take the Irish voters already enlisted in the organization which had put away political tricksters. Their first effort was made on Monday evening, and a sad spectacle it was to the friends of Ireland. Had tho Irish people, who were present to the number of five thousand, taken any part in the procoedings, by contributions or otherwise, there is no knowing where It r?ight end. Thank God, they have learned better. V'ou justly attribute the hoatility oxhibited in certain localities in this country against Irishmen. to their being made tools of at election times by designing domagougeu ; and your just censure of Monday night's proceedings assure uio you will aid in exposing similar attempts in future. The Irishmen of this city only desire to be let alone by politicians of all parties. They neither want whig nor locofoco fishing hooks cast into their meetings. They desire tho countenance and support of all good men; but they despise the vaunting* of political knaves You will give them c edit for a proof of this, when you observe that noithcr tho potential exhortations of Knimett and Greeley, holding tho whig rod. or Flannegan and Butler, the picked fishermen of the distracted hu nkors or barnburners, succeeded in abstracting one dollar from the pockets of the five thousand present. May it always be so Then, indeed, will the cause of Ireland stand before tho American people as a cause in which thoyjeun honestly participate. One word. sir. upon the course of tho Republican Union, or nnti-politician party. They have been represented as organizing an illegal military body in this city, under the title of an Irish brigade. Thiols cot Ko What they have done, and intend to continue to d?. is simply this ;?To oncourage such young men as desire individually to go to Ireland, to aid her people in the battle field, if (all ether moans failing to obtain justice for them) they be driven to fight?to learn the science of war. To do this, they recommend these young men to enrol with tilers, as an frisli brigade, in the Amerioan militia. When tho time conies that their services may be required, the Union'' would merely assist them to proceed there as individuals, not us a military body. Their usefulness to the Irish people would not be so much from tho physical power they would bring. a? from the skill in military matters they would have acquired in the drill-rooms of the brigade. Thin mode of procedure they adopted under legal advice. now endorsed by the opinions of tho District Attorney of tho United States and by the District Attorney of the State of New York. For doing this, they have boon falsely accused by Mr Kmmott. as acting in opposition to the law. ko.

Mr. Van Brae* went on to observe that It had never before been his fortune to appear before the democracy r>f this ancient city; but he had heard from his earliest childhood, of the firmness and unchanging fortitude with which the democracy of New Vork adhered to the sound supporter* of democracy, and to the pare prinriple* of freedom. when well and properly laid before them He would give, as an example, the measure of the independent treasury. The democracy of the Empire State hail taken up that easure under circumstances of peculiar discouragement after a great defeat: and yet. unterrlfled and undismayed, the masses i>f the democracy had taken it up. and gloriously triumphed in establishing it. The democracy of the Empire State was equally remarkable for the firmness and tenacity with which it adhered to those eminent men who had distinguished themselres in its service and by fidelity to their principles.
