r Mf all _ ' Wholi No. MIO. THE R2CX3PVJEOW OK GENERAL LEWIS CASS,! TIIE Democratic Candidate for the Presidency. HIS TRIP THROUGH NEW JERSEY, AND Arrival in New "STork, &c. ?&< . &e. Notice having been given, that General Cass would visit this city on his return homeward, active prepirations'were made for a grand reception at the various railroad stations, between this city and Philadelphia, as also in this city. Agreeably to usual custom, we despatched a reporter to Princeton to meet him, and note the proceedings to this citv. lie. accompanied bv General I lous ton, of Tex is, Colonel Henton, General Foote, Senators Moore, Allen, and a host of persons, who joined the escort along the route. He spent the night at Trenton, whither he watt conducted by a committee from Philadelphia, of which Recorder Lee was chairman. ! ARRIVAL AT PRINCETON. At half past nine o'clock, bv special train, Gen. Cass and escort, arrived at the Princeton depot, from which they immediate proceeded to visit the (college, and his old friend, John R. Thomson,Esq. He remained at the residence ol Mr. Thomson until half past eleven o'clock, when a move was made towards the depot. At twelve o'clock, the carriage drew up in front ol the railroad office, and the distinguished cornpiny alighted. The first carriage contained Gen. Houston, of Texas j lie is a fine looking man, about six feet and six inches high, dressed in a plain suit of black cloth, while a white cravat I kept his dickey in its proper place. On his head, lie supported a very low crowned white hat, with a brim about eight inches wide, the front of which was turned down, and the back bent up, in real senatorial style. The next that followed was General Cass, a rather short, but quite fat man, with florid complexion, and of quite genteel appearance. They were received by about three hundred persons who had assembled with grent enthusiasm. The next carriage contained several gentlemen, among whom were Colonel Henton, of Missouri, and Senator Allen, of Ohio. The former is a pleasant looking man, apparentlv about sixty years of age, with a fine eye, and a little bald. He was dressed in black cloth, which was so j>erfeetly covered with dust, that it was im|>ossible. without scrutinizing, to tell what was its original color. He won-a hat of the fashion of 182S, high crown and broad brim, the hinder part of which had the senatorial turn up. Senator Allen, of very slender person, was also dressed in black cloth. His height is considerably over six feet, and his person very straight. _ 11 is long grey hair hung down on eacli side of his facc, and very frequently, when his hat was off, over his eyes.? " When his old hat was new," it, no doubt, presented a different appearance, but looks now as if it had seen better days. The other gentlemen, of less notoriety, presented various appearances. Having all emerged from?the vehicles, General Houston was introduced to the company by Col. Alexander, of New Jersey. He spoke of the battles of the General in Texas, aud reverting to the county in which they then were, he said, "And, General, you are now standing upon soil which has been drenched with the blood of patriots, and i around you are the unmarked graves ot those patriots. 'Twas here a Mercer fell, (from whom the county derived its name) a gallant soldier." General Houston replied? My fellow citizen* ? I suppose you have heard a grunt denl about ye. anil have hail a great curiosity to see a live Texian. and know that he won't bite. Many years ago. a few of us went to Texas to protect the Mexicans from the tomahawk of the red man?and we did protect them. They afterwards oppressed us. and we rose in our strength, and. as you call it here, flogged them (A voice. Yes. Hogged 'em like hell, by G?d !'') Many think tlmt Texas is made up of a >et of rascals. If it is. we are indebted to you for them. lam frequently asked about Texas, and I tell them an anecdote 1 once heard, which serves very well; that was as follows :? There was an Irishman who came to this country, by the nirno of Patrick Murphy, and went to lire with a Mr. Gilmore. in Mobile. After he had staid a month, he was paid thirty dollars. He was perfectly delighted, never having had so much money at one time before in his life, lie culled upon Mr. Oilinore and a?ke<l him he would grant him a favor, to which Mr. O. replied, he would, lie then said. "I want you to write me a letter to me brother in the ould counthry. and say that I am living with Mr Gilmore. that I get a quarter of a dollar n day. and mate once a day." Mr. G. turned and ask^ii him if he did not get a dollar a day. and meat three times a day. -Oh. yis.'yer honor, but if I write the way I said, they will come over; but if I write that I get a dollar a day. aud inate three times a day. niver a bit will they believe it. and divil the one of 'em that'll come.'' And my friends, go it Is with Texas?if I tell you how good it Is. you would not believe mo; but ymi can get a quarter a day. and meat at least once a day." Gen. Cass was then loudly called for, and appeared, but made a very few rem trks, when the bell announced the train readv to leuve, aud that l.lit tin enrl In tile anealxin.r '1').. > r?.,.l.. t!u' sianul was given, and the train moved off, a mill tiie cheering of the assembled hundreds, and in a short time we were called to notice THK RECKPTIO.1 AT NKW llRINSWKK. As sson a< the cars reached the de^ot at New Brunswick, the people were to be seen running from every direction to see Gen. Cass. lie came out upon the platform, and after a general introduction to about two hundred people, was conducted to the Kailroad Hotel, where a collation was prepared, and one which certainly reflected credit ujion the good taste of the host. The table was spread with good and tastefully-prepared meats, after which came an abundance of the finest strawberries. Mr. Adrain was the m ister of ceremonies at this place. After partaking of, indeed devouring, the good things with which the table w is spread, (Jen. Cass was conducted to an upper ? room, where he was introduced to several ladies. So much of the time having been consumed here in eating, there was no time for speaking; and again the sound of the whistle of the locomotive, of another special train, despatched from Jersey City, under the direction of the urbane and gentlemanly superintendent of the road, Mr. Smith, whose courtesy to the press is without a parallel, the whole party moved towards KAHWAY. In a short time the village of Kahway was in si^lit. and in a few minutes more the cars stood on the stand, where another crowd was waiting to receive (>en?ral Cass. He was again introduced, as were a'so the other distinguished men. A speech was called for, and General Cass called upon Senator Allen, who spoke very briefly upon the policy of the present administration as salutary, anil the cuily thing calculated to keep alive the liberty of the people was the success of democratic principles. Tliey ((he democrats) were not children enough to think that glorious institutions of the country would ever be overthrown, but tli^y were men enough to know f hat there was a party in the country wnosc only object was tho pulling down of the ramparls of the democratic institutions, but that they could never do. Hut twice since th'' formation of our confederacy had that party succeeded, and one of those eases was in the election of the elder Adams, undT whose administration laws were enacted sorely oppressing those of foreign birth who had sought a home in our happy country. There was no probability now that they would again succeed for years. The day growing late, again were tne company summoned to take their seats in the ears again, and a general rush was made, among the rest (reneral Cass leaning upon the arm of John It. Thomson, Ks | , while the crowd thronged around him to shake him bv the hand. Heachina the car, (Jen. Cass was rather short-legged, and not being able to gel up himself, was bodt y lifted to the platform. Ik'ing sate on the ear, lie turned around and thanked them for their kindness, witii " boys do | the best you can in November." The triiiii again si irted, and, with quick and rapid strides, soon reached old and romantic ; looking ELIZA nKTIITOW.N. The cars stopped here for a few moments, but there not being many persons at the station, and the huzzas being rather feeble, the iron horse was . driven towards the CITY OP NEWARK. There was a larger concourse of persons at Newark than at all the other nlu??u -.i.l.l.wl ?<>. I I aether.

Mr. Senator Allen again spoke j an<J though he ' iff IB wmK E NE J hits h voice which can be heard at a great distance, so great was the contusion, the pulling and hauling, that it was impossible to get near the place where he stood, or hear anything he said. The reception at this place was more enthusiastic than at any ol' the former places, and Gen. Cass seemed highly delighted with the honor conferred upon him, when three eneera tAe given for Cuiud Butler. The stay was necessarily short at .Newurk ; and the next thing to be thought of and done was to drive tor JERSEY CITY, Where a general shout was given on the arrival of the cars. Reaching the depot, he, Gen. Cass and escort, were conducted to the piazza of the depot building, and a general introduction to tlie took place. General 1 lout-ton then went into the street, and shook hands with the children, while Gen. Cass and Col. Benton shook hands with the crowd. At this time the committees of the Common Council arrived, and were introduced to Gen. Cass and suite. Alderman Crolius stated to Gen. Cass that a boat was ready to convey them to the city; and as soon as the company could be collected, they were conducted to th? boat by the committees, and a general shout burst upon the air as they passed from the depot building. reception in new york. About 4 o'clock, the Comnion Council, and a large number of influential citizens, proceeded on board the steamboat Arresseoh, from fool of Castle Garden, to Jersey City, to receive General Cass and Iriends, as the guests of the city. The following members of both boards composed the Committees of Reception:? Clarkson Crolius, George W. Allerton, Wm. J. McDermott, Alexander 11. Schultz, William Adams, Charles Webb. James S. Libby, William W. Kream. Frederick D. Kohler, Morgan Morgans. Jr., Morris Kranklin. Wilson Small. Com. of Hoard of Aid. Com. Bonr-l Asst. Aid. Collector Lawrence, Post Master Morris. Hon. John McKeon, Judges Smith and Daly, together with a large concourse of leading members of the democratic party in this city, flocked forward on board, amid the tiring of cannon and the soulinspiriting and enlivening performance of that alwayspopularair, "The Mar Spangled Banner," by Lothian's inimitable brass band, when the boat immediately put out for Jersey City. Short as was the trip, many warm and cordial greetings among friends were observable in all parts of the boat, and several were heard to express themselves with much confidence as to the Presidential contest, in favor of their candidate. The steamer having put in at the wharf at Jersey City, the distinguished guests, (<rneral Cass and friends, were soon ushered on board, a salute being tired, amid loud cheering, and the band playing 44 Hail Columbia." The committee of reception immediately formed in circles, and received General Cass anil friends, amid renewed cheering, when Aldennan Fkankun hereupon addressed Gen. Cass, as follows:? Respected Sir?I am the honored Instrument of the Common Council of the city of New Vork, to tender tc you their congratulations, that after a long and brilliant career in the councils of the nation, you haw been permitted to retire to the enjoyment of your domestic associations, with the approbation of a grateful and honorable constituency ; and to assure you that, although to most of our citizens you may personally bo a stranger, that there are extended hands and animated hearts prepared to welcome you to their hospitalities, and receive you as their guest (applause) ; foi we have heard of you upon our frontiers, when the war-whoop of the savage was sounded throughout the then almost boundless forest?when the tomahawk anil the scalping-knife were glittering in the noon-da] sun, threatening destruction to our people, and desola tion to their firesides and their homes ; and, when < truce was sounded, and the calumet of peace wai burning around their council fires, you were there mingling witta them in loud huzzas of returning contt denee. and cheering them with the prospect of a speedy and a favorable peace. (Applause) But it is not only in reference to this that the name of Oeneral Cass ii fauiiliar to the ears of the American people (cheers); for there are those now living whose parents were tin early pioneers in the settlement of our Western world, who have heard of vuur stniirirli>? mil ituvntcil exertions to shield and protect them in those early days when that now nourishing region wan only the abode or the red man of the wilderness, and the play ground of the rude beasts of the forest. Throughout that vast and now ricbly cultivated portion of our country your name has bcconie as familiar as their household words; and. in connection with it* early history, if heard upon its barren hills, and in its fertile plains? in the cottage of the peasant, and in the noble structure of the rich man's pride.

(Cheering and applause ) Can we, then. sir. under the influence of those true national f< elings which prompt us to cherish with tin in >-t lively recollcction? the names of our distinguished st&ti'sme .. and soldiers, hesitate for a moment to extend to you a siucere and cordial welcome upon your visit 10 our nobis city ; for. indeed, sir. it is noble in the magnificence of its public buildings, its literatuie and science, its commercial enterpiise. its spacious squares and sparkliug fountains its capacious harbor, where ships of every cliine. and of whatever tonnage, ride secure amidst the rudost storms; but above all in the de votion of Its people to the maintenance of its laws and ajust appreciation of those noble institutions which were founded in the wisdom of our fathers, consecrated by the blood of those who broke the chain of continental slavery, andare now fearlessly maintained by a wise, patriotic and uncompromising band of determined freemen. To such a city. sir. wc welcome you. and introducing you to the hospitality of our citizen*, wc venture the assertion that party feeling will be forgotten. and that as with th? heart of one man we will unite in claiming you as our welcomed and our honored guest: for in this your visit we recognize not the leader of a party or the candidate for public favor, but the distinguished statesman, returning to his home, after the discharge of his laborious duties, to render an account to a grateful and confiding constituency; and happy.

Willi sincere and ardent desires that you inay realizo the reward of an approving conscience, and the approb leu of an admiring people, we again bid you welcome to our city, and claim you as our guest. At till.* conclusion ol the nddrcHti, the cheering was loud, vehement, nnd prolonged, u|?on which (frni'hal Cass replied, and thanked the < onnnon Council most sincerely, fi r the very favorable sentiments which they had expressed towards him in the address, which had just been delivered.

Wonder it ! the Common Council will ever find any other jilaees of amusement for distinguished strangers visiting the city! Theatrical and Hndcal. Bowery Thkatre.?This capacious building was again crowded last evening with a highly respectable audience. Mr. W. Marshall, who took his benefit on the occasion, must have felt highly flattered with the manner in which he was received and his talents appreciated. The first piece was " Richard the Third,'' in which Mr. Marshall appeared to go far ahead of all his previous efforts, and in the tent scene Mr. M.. as Richard, was peculiarly effective. At the close of tkc play. Mr. M.,in obedience to a most vociferous call.cume before the curtain, when a shower of beautiful bo<|Uets were thrown at his feet. After the appaluse had subsided, he gratefully acknowledged the tokens of approbation which had been manifested towards him. Mr C. W. Clarke, as the Duke of Buckingham, also drew forth repeated applause, while Miss Lockyer admirably sustained the part of the t'rince of Wales, and if prol>erly put forward, there is 110 doubt but she would soon become a great favorite. " Richard the Third" was followed by the Yankee comedy of " Ole Bull," In which Mr. C. Burke kept the audience in constant roars of laughter. To-night Mr. C. W. Clarke takes his benefit. and offers a great bill. Niulo's Astob Place.?The question is decided In favor of this place of amusement. No matter how f?r it may be up town, it is nightly filled, from par<juette to dome, with a ga'axy of fine ladies, of lovely young misses. and fashionable young men. The audience present last evening was. In spite of the rain, one of the greatest of the week; and all seemed delighted with the entertainment presented The Danseuses Viennoises with the admirable precision of their dances, were ex tremely well received by the assembly. and appeared in three of their bent divertisements?the Pas des Berbers.'' ' La Tyrollonne." and the Pan den Kleurs;" thin last being the prettiest animated garden ever planted by the universal < reator The more we fee these talented children, the more we are enchanted with their elegance and grace; and the public seein? perfectly to agree with us. The vaudeville company perforated the two plays called "The Alpine Maid" and the ' Miseries of Human Life." in which John Sefton Chippendale. Walcott. Mrs. Meatier, and the beautiful Kate Horn filled the principal parts, and received much applause. The performance of this evening will be n very attractive ono. It will consist of the celebrated Pa* Rococo." the "Polka Paysanne." and the "(Jallopc des Drapeaux." by the Viennoise children, and the two comedies of the "Alpine Maid" nnd ''Naval Engagement*.We dee on the bills that M. Maurice Strackosh. pianist to the Kmperor of Itussia. is decidedly engaged by Mr. Niblo. and we have every reason to believe he will make his first appearance to-morrow night There will be a graat treat for the cognoicrnli and the amateurs of the pianoforte players. Chatham Theatre.?This house, last night, was crammed to excess, from the orchestra to the very celling. The drama, entitled the Chain of Guilt.'' or ' Wandering Wilt,"' went off well, and was followed by "New Vork as It Is," for which the fiirorr appears to increase rather than diminish; but Mose" having engaged to kick up a muss in Boston next week, tonight is the last one we shall have an opportunity of seeing him. Christy's Miivitrei.s will, as usual, give a first rate bill this evening. Their singing, dancing and witticisms are as bright and pungent as ever. When the public get hold of a good set of singers like these, they do not let theui go in a hurry, as their immense succors during ei^ht consecutive months has shown They are the elitr of KthiopUn singers, and no pleaxanter way ear be devised of passing an evening, than in a visit to them. Castle Oarhem?The unfavorable state of the weather prevented Madame Augusta's benefit from being as well attended an it might have been. The taroe Of 'Lend Me Klve Shillings" was well received. Of Madame Augusta we cannot speak iu too high praise. She li the first professor in her art, and her manirrri liittinfuiri will always mnke her a gn at favorite with the American public. She appears again to-night, when we have no doubt the ttardun will be well filled. The bill Is a very attractive one. Melodeon.? As the reason advances, this place takes a stronger hold than evor on the affections of Its patrons. It is a most genteel and elegant place of amusement. The Virginia Minstrels will be out in full force this evening. Bottksini. Asditi. avii DesvernNk's Concert, at the Tabernacle, on Monday evening, will be the grand event of the week. The musical world is all alive with I anticipation. Bottesiui and Arditi have been heard I before, but Desvernine is a stranger among us personally. though his reputation has been so thoroghly estah. i lished in < uba that we do not frar for the result. Signora Ploo and Slgnor Viettl will aid the distinguished triad, and Maestro Itarili will preside at the piano We shall take another opportunity to speak more fully of the programme, which we may here say Is a first rate one. Hportlng Intelligence. ' Trottikii.?The most extraordinary affair in the trotting line, that has ever taken place, will come off at the l Centrevillo Course, on Saturday afternoon It Is no less than a twenty mile match, for f2000. between AJa* and Marian.

THE WHIG NATIONAL CONVENTION, At Philadelphia. INTERESTING PROCEEDINGS, kt. &6. kt. ok thk first d a v. Philadelphia, June 7. 1848. The morning of Wednesday, the seventh day of June, in the year of Redemption one thousand eight hundred and forty-eight, opened clear, cool utid breezy in the City of Fraternal Affection; and with the dawn of the day the swarms at the hotel* began to pour forth into the street*. At sunrise the democracy commenced nssembliug in front of Jones's. awaiting the hour for an introduction to the democratic nominee. Immediately after breakfast, the whig* began to stream out. and simultaneously a heavy current of tbe delegation*. lobby member* and1' outsiders," net np Chesnut street on both sides. gathering volume at every crossing. The multitude were bearing up to the Chinese Museum, cprner of Ninth and Ueurge stroets, where, by ten o'clock, a solid mass of several thousand* were assembled. Shortly after, the doors opened at the front on Ninth street the admission of the people to the galleries: ani at tt. same time the delegates and re l>on.?rn hi mi' n<-w?paper press were passed into tile hall by a private door on (iuorga street. It wan hall pant ten when your reporters took their seats amoug the press gang at their tables. anil a glance around u? induces us to attempt a brief description of the magnificent spectacle presented to the view. The hull of the Chinese Muiiouin is. perhaps, the most splendid, aud, uext lifter that of the Castle Warden. in the most capacious in the United States. It if upwards of two hundred feet in length, by fifty in width. It is flanked on every side by a series of spacious compartments, under the galleries, which on thii occasion arc appropriated as consultation rooms to the different State delegations. At intervals of every ten feet along the two sides of the hall, a heavy square pedestal rises to the base of the galleries, surmouuted by two Corinthian columns?the whole gallery<collonnade upon each side consisting of sixteen pairs of said columns, sustaining the ballustradlng which supports the ceiling. The niches between the pedestals on all siilei of the ball, excepting the spaces for the doors, are ornamented with paintings, each in a circloof five feet diameter. The paintings are beautifully done, ant] represent the choicest landscapes in Greece, Italy Switzerland, Kugland, the United States, and othei countries of this picturesque and handsomely gotten up little planet of ours. Hung up around the hall, on each of the projections, between the paintings, is ? large placard, with an inscription which can be reat] the extent of the ball, indicating the State and locality of the different delegations on the floor. On the east side of the ball, uiid-way down, is the official platform. raised four feet from the floor, and the area of thirty feet by fifteen, is carpeted and hung with green baize, and provided with the necessary tables, chain and settees for the officers The drapery at the back of the platform, sustained by several columns of th< galleries, consists of a number of star spangled banners surmounted in the centre by a genuine (stuffed) apscimen of the American eagle, holding in his beak a blut riband, bearing in golden letters the motto of " E Pluribut Unum," the bird being otherwise provideii with the shield, arrows, and olive, constituting tin arms of the Union. In front, aud on both sides of thi official table, on the floor of the hall, are the reporters tables, covered with green baise. provided with all tht implements of their cruft by the Committee of Arrange ments ; and as an evidence of the importance of thii Convention, from sixty to seventy of the press gani are now engaged around us, in their world enlighten ing vocation.
