iPf'WiPF' 1 " " T H NO. 5173. litvailon of tlic Dniiultlmi Provinces by lluafcla. The Pal is papers ure much occupied with what they call the invasion of the Danubian provinces by 1< useia. Some of them speculate on the invasion of Constantinople as u settled point, und ring the aluim hell. We select an article from the Sicrle on this subject, as taking the most rational and moderate view of the designs of the Kmperor Nicholas. The subject is truly ene of great interest. The Sierle savs:? Russia, profiting by tin- embarrassed state of Europa. and the irremediable weakness of the I'orte, is about to take military possession of the Dauubiau provinces, which are on the road to Constantinople. Wo eannot, however, see in this movement the signal of a general conflagration. By the treaties of Jassy and Adrianople. the Czar bad the light of intervening in those provinces for the preservation of order. Europe did ?.?? r?,ir. 11 Ml." 15", UBCllllllB in X014 Germany and Knglatid were of opinion that it was most advantageous to turn their attention to check the triumphant progress ot Napoleon, and in 1828, because Kngland feared, by pluciug herself in opposition to Russia, she would bring about an alliance between the and the Bourbons of the elder branch, in the hope of carrying back the frontiers of France to the left bank of the ltbinu. Those treaties were consequently recognised, and, above all4 as they were more advantageous than otherwise to tho Dauublan provinces, their being carried into execution could not be made a casus belli against Russia, as long ns that power wus on a friendly footing with Constantinople. The consent given by Turkey to the entrance of Russian troops into those provinces, is not of a nature to dharin the watchfulness of Frwuce and of Germany. No ono is ignorant that Turkey is in the hands of a government whose weakness or passions will lead to an inevitable catastrophe. Since the death of Seliin HI., tho Ottoman uiuisters, without exception, have always . howii au inclination to place their confidence in Russia and in Kngland, the only two powers who may one day come to an understanding as to the partition of Turkey, tho ono taking Constantinople, and the other Kgypt and Syria. Whatever counsels mav have been oriven to tlietn. the statesmen of Turkey have always lout an pur to thoee who flattered their national vanity at the expense of the interests of Turkey This fatality tends to complicate the question raised by the intervention of the Russians iu.the Danubian provinces, and may, at some distant period, light up a territorial war in Europe. The nmbitlous projects of England and of Russia may, however. And an obstacle in the govern- j mental unity which lias been brought about in Qermany, it is impossible tbat Germany. having at her head an Austrian prince, could fail to comprehend that her interests would bo compromised by allowing Russia to gain possession of the lower Danube. The Danubo is to Germany tbe road to the East; she holds the head of it, and she will not deliver up its approachps to an enemy for as such must Russia lie re- I garded by her. 'Whatever, then, may bo tbe audacity ' of Russia, she will not dare to provoke at the same time Germany and Krance, for in this point of view their interests are similsr. Tbe question.'then, in ! our opinion, is to know whether France and Germany . may (be agreed in calling the Danubian provinces : into an independent existence. The affirmative does , not appear to us doubtful ; the dangers which Russia , would incur arc so evident that she will quickly apply herself to weaken an intluence, the oxcess of which would cause the destruction of hopes she has so long : and dearly cherished. Those wbo see a prospect of a speedy war because the Czar is about to occupy AloldoWullacbia. forget, in our opinion, that the Cxar ' can no longer reckon on the false terrors of Germany. I There are, doubtless, princes on the other side of the Rhine, who, to save some of their historical rights, will . place themselves at the mercy of the Emperor Nicholas); but, behind those governments, there is a people ' amounting to forty millions, speaking in the voice of one member of the National Assembly, when, on the 7th of this month, on the system of the defence of the empire being brought forward, M. Wierner said ' We have a right to count on Hungary, and a war with France is not to be feared; lar from it, everything induces us to accept au alliance olTored by Franoe, fur France and Germany united may defy tho whole world, either in peaoe or in war." "The following account of the Russian army stationed on the frontiers, communicated by an individual from Warsaw, intimately acquainted with some of the principal staff officers of the Imperial anny, will be read with interest:? " 7 he forces of the Ilussian Knipire, at present available, consist of 000X00 men. The various announcemcnts put forth that ltussia has not a sufficient stock of war materials arc groundless. Uniforms, arms, horses, and harness arn all in excellent order, and piovlsions abound The maintenance of the troops costs comparatively little, andjthe treasury of the emperor, as is well known, is fur from being empty. The preparations throughout the whole empire are carried ou. with great energy; yet it is not truo that 1100,000 rren aro ready to act In Poland. In the whole of Kussian Poland there are only two army corps, each consisting of 60.000 men. It is true ihat Warsaw is strongly occupied, but thero are only 12.000 men in garrison. Towards the frontiers of Silesia only one battalion lias been moved forward, and eric small corps towards the frontiers of Cracow On the side of the Grand Duchy of Posen along the whoh extent of the frontirr, there are only 26.000 men posted This, therefore, is the formidable power of which so much has been said. True, however, it is that fresh troops am daily scut forward a? reinforcements, so thr.t bv the end of Septeuibe , there will be a force of 300.000 men at least ready for any operations in the kingdom of Poland. Only a single spark is required to awaken the whole of the population of Poland ; but at the present moment all remains as quiet as the grave, both in that country and in Oallicia. as any insurrection would be hopeless. The motive of the Kmpcror in Collecting the urmy in such force is a secret to the highest military authorities. i nere <soes hoi appear any object for the concentration of thin enormous force, beyond the l'ear of an invasion of (icrm&n revolutionary principles Hut, even if this nrmv of 600.000 jnen were intended for any ottensire operations, there Is not so much to fear from its power as is supposed : for 100.000 at least must remain within the kingdom ; as many moro to watch the Caucasus ; a similar number to guard against Tur ey ; and an equal portion to remain in the interior of Itussia ; so that only a disposable force of 200.000 men would remain forany invasion, if contemplated This is certainly a formidable army, but it could hardly overpower any part of Germany." Paris In a State of Siege. THE NATIONAL IKENC.H ASSK.MIII.V SITTINO OS JULY 7. hvcrything was perfcally tranquil about the Assembly. 1 he troops remain strongly posted in the garden and court-yards. Two pieces of cannon still lace the bridge. Inside, the attendance of members was not very great; the public tribune." also were not so fully attended ns usual. M., one of the vice-presidents, took the chair at a quarter pa*t two. M. I'ai.Ninas said that, with referencato the Manuel Jifjiu/hicain spoken of on Wednesday as published by litni. be had to remark that he had' not read the woik bolero it appourcd. having been engaged at the time with the duties of an important situation at the llotei do Vtlle? that of secretary to the Provisional Government. It was. he thought, unnecessary for him lo*ay that he by no means shared in any opinions ihat it might contain in favor of communism or against I property . as his views on these subjects were perfectly well known. Ucucal OrmsoT presented a report from the war committee on the proposition of M. de Hemilly to establish a ramp of at least 60.000 men in the Champ de Mais, or in the neighborhood of Paris. The commit t e diCISKU lieeil in lUTcr in ine measure, mil recommended it* adoption. On another bill demanding one million tor works to be executed at t herburg. the committee wan in faTor of the grant. The I'rs mdknt 01 thi: t'oi nciL (General Cavaignae) obsrm d that the executive power, being impressed with the utility of the establishment of a considerable loice in the neighborhood of the capital, had already gl'.en the necessaiy orders on the subject. The guucral feeling having npptared decisive, he had not Iwaitid lor the report of the committee to adopt the course which it bud juht recommended. (Hear, hear.) At to the proposition demanding a credit for the execution ot works ut ( bribing, no doubt that important srapott would not he omitted in a general bill, which it was intended to bring forward. It was unnecessary to demand any temporary credit for 1848. a? a permanent credit would be demanded for 'ho defence of tbe whole coa?t. more particularly applicable to 184!). (Hear, hrer.) M.Taoi wkau wished to address certain interpellations to tha Hon ('resident of the Council on a matter of great importance. The government had thought lit to place Paris in a state of siege. (Great uproarcries of*' No. no!"?" Not the government..") Well, the National Assembly had done so. and, In addition, hod suspended a number ot jou*nals. Now, if the public safety required the continuance of the state of sUgo. surely it was not necessr.ry to maintain any longer the suppression of '.lie journals alluded to. To (prolong that state of things, would bo equivalent to a complete onnflecation of property?would, in fact, prove their ruin. He wished to learn If the state of siege might not now bo brought to an end, as being i no lunger necessary. (Murmurs, which gradually ln crea: ed to great confusion, intermingled with cries of ' the order of the day.") He wished to learn first, wh:.t stews the government intended to ndopt relative to the Mate of siege, and next relative to the suspension of the journals alluded to. The Partinr.ivt os1 tiii: Coi ivcii.?The hon. representative sceuied anxious to have the state of siege brought to an i nd. No dnubt such a state was a terrible power in the hands of a government; but he. as head of the executive power, had to declare that he felt so strong In tha rectitude of h e Intentions?he had been so energetically supported in his course of conduct by public iininU.n?/ehi.ersl?I lie I,relent rIaIa af firunt* was still ki unsettled. that he considered himself railed on to dtrlarc that it wns at til advisable to continue the Stair rf siege f<v. a considerable time longer. (Hear, fc beer-marks of assent ) With the manner In which that state of things was conducted, he conld not see that titers could lie any inconvenience to any well disposed clats of the Inhabitants- (hear, hear)?nor d.J ht> think that auy juelly-fojtndrd objection conld lie lusde to thi litYmx now prevailing In the capital. (Hear hear) That being said, he had further to observe, that be did n<.t sec that there was ati Indissoluble bond 1m 1 ween the suppression of certain journals and Uti maintenance of the state of siege. (Varies of MaCBUaMMBT:? ?/?

(Hear, hear ) M haiiAOi> Lakiiurrk wished to direct the attention of the Assembly to the present condition ft the press, relative to the caution-money. A decree of the provisional government had abrogated the law ot 1836. But. in tile Mnnittur of Ihat mnrniiiff ShurA hud Iaum fiublislitd another decree, declaring that, though the i uws of September were no longer in force, still the 1 press must consider itself under the jurisdiction of the < bill passed in December, 1830, which required the cau- 1 tion-money to be deposited, lie wished to know, as ' i the bill of 1885 was abrogated, what was the object of 1 placing the press under th ) provisions of 1830, when tlx y had been annulled by the bill of 18oo. 1 The 1'rf.sidknt os' the Council.?I have said that, j when we shall lie sufficiently armed against the abuses of the press, we shall restore to it all its liberty. The l'arisian press, however, is not that which appears to us the most dangerous at preiout j it is the departmental press which publishes facts, and draws iuferences from them without their meeting with uny contradiction. This has rendered it necessary for us to direct cur attention to the means of defence (gainst such a state of things, it has not appeared to me necessary to consult the Assembly on the regime to be | imposed or the press during the continuance of the < stale of aiege ; nor even on the temporary re-establishment of the caution-money, for, in fact, the government has not occupied itself with that question. Nevertheless, it cannot remain without defence in the presence of daDgcr. The provisional government abolished j the laws of September, and it appears to us that that abolition bas revived the law of 1830 1 beg the Assem bly to remember that .the government has only acted in presence of an absolute necessity, which will every ; day lose its rigor, ncd restore, as soon as circumstances | will permit: for the press, as for every thing else, all j those liberties of which we ore, (you and myself), the | fumest guardians. (Loud approbation.) ? . ? ? * The Assembly rose at seven o'clock. THE M'lNJON OF M. 11E LAMARTINE. The JBien Public (Lamartiiie organ) has the fol- r lowing on the state of the siege :? "Paris is still in a state of siege, and according to the recent declaration of General Cavaignac in the I tribune of the National Assembly, it will be so for a c long time to come. We could feel that after a commo- 1' t on 10 violent as that of the events of June, it was ue- c cesrary to conoentrate power, to arm the republic, to ^ protect it after its victory, and to make it an mvinci- " ble rampart ef bayonets and swords. We were consequently not afraid to see the government transformed ? into a camp, for we kndV that the camp was an asylum " for liberty, hut we never thought, and no ano ever ** could think, that the state of siege, voted amidst the w roar of the fusillade, at an hour at which blood was * flowing, would be indefinitely prolonged. Theexcep- 8: tlonal regime is to last as long as the danger of the 8 country. It is an eclipse of liberty. Once the danger 81 vanished, liberty will resume its rights, and the die- ^ tatorship will have to stand respectfully aside to render to the republic the independence and grandeur of w its sovereignty. We desire to exaggerate nothing. We 81 take pleasure in recognising the toleration and mode- J.1 ration which General Cavaignac brings to the practice " of the dictatorial regime confided to hi in by the Na- ?J tional Assembly. Thanks to his liberal sentiments, the state of siege has never been a tyranny, and it D' now occasions scarcely any trouble at all to the inhabit ants at large. But it does not the less exist as a J" sort of menace. It is a sword at present in the sheath. 11 Nothing could piovent its being drawn, and the point placed on the heart of the republic. We know that nothiDg of the kind need be feared; but. however great f may be the security with which the character and ()| opinions of General Cavaignac inspire us. we say that the best guarantee is that of institutions.? In revolutionary times men pass away quickly; and " the government may fall into hands less pure, less libe- " rnl, than those of the present chief of the government. v\ France must not become accustomed to dictatorship, e and an ambitious man must not find her flexible, and e d sciplined for despotism; monarchies require only 0 courtiers, but republics only live the life of liberty, j The indefinite prolongation of the state of siege would have another inconvenience?that of keeping up disquietude in the midst of the country. We always per- 'I celve tho fear of a battle in this organization ot the * | government on a war footing. Each day appears the tl I eve of an hututr. Men of order believe themselves h | threatened?men of disorder believe themselves dread- j n j ed. it results that confidence cannot return in a com- I v plutc manner. We tremble under the protection of I I bayonets. It is a sort of bivouac between two (com ' bay. It is not peace which arises from the harmony I of interests, the security of the public mind, the activity of labor. the welfare of the masses, the emulaj ticn of patriotism. Liberty, regulated and placed in relation with the wants of the country, the progress of ? i morals, the spirit of democracy?that Is what France wants ! The state of aiege was the salvation of tho republio during the struggle?it would be a danger during peace. The republic cannot live in a camp; it is the government of the nation, and the nation is at once its heart and its arm.*its rampart and its army." [From Galignani's Messenger, July 10.] One ol the usual, and as hua been hitherto considered inevitable, consequences of a stute of siege, viz:?the total suppression of the liberty of the press, cannot he said to e.\i9t at this moment. To rend the articles in the ultra republican journals, from the Reform c to I he Represent ant du People. one would scarcely believe that any fetters had been put on public liberty. M.cleLnmartlne on the Liberty of the Press. The Ricn Public, which is generally regarded as I the direct organ of M. de Lanmrtiue, says, on the 12th ult:? i The liberty of tho press, like all liberties, would be lost by its excesses. We honor it too much in its mls, sion not to desire tbat it may be placed, by laws at once wise and liberal, in conditions of independence and dignity. Independence is not the Impunity of licon- j tiousness ; it is the right to say all that conscience and ' ; ica: mi authorize to bo said. Dignity is not the privilege of insolence?it is the respect of oneself, the ro- ( sponribility of one's acts and words seriously accepted in presence of opinion and of the law. What should , be for the press, the form and limit of this responsibl- ' lity ? It Is here tbat tne principle of the deposit of the J caution money appears, m mi' htate 01 our political n anncrs, we hesitate not to recognize that this principle is wilutary ; but it must not be exaggerated. The Restoration fixed the caution money at 48.0<X) francs ; tliat was too much. The revolution of July increased it to 100,000 francs, which was monstrous. The Republic has oonaideied it a point of honor to show itself more liberal than the Restoration ; and In the sitting of yesterday, M. Senard proposed a decree, enaoting that the caution money of newspapers published at Paris shall be 24,000 francs. Will caution money, thus moderated in amount, until the progress of political manners shall allow it to be completely abolished, be an embarrassment for honorable enterprises, which will represent an idea or a useful interest ? We do not think It. Bad publications alone will find an obstacle In It. With the caution money at 24.000 francs, a man can always establish a journal, whether he calls himself M. de Lnmennais or M. Girardin?if he represents something serious in society; but he could never establish a paper entitled the JVre Due time, or the Journal de la Canaille. In a word, caution monoy, reduoed to this amount, will only be an embarrassment to licentiousness?it I will be a force to liberty. Let us then not complain ! The caution money of one hundred thousand francs did not prevent newspapers from being started under the reign of Louis Thilippe; under the republic, which so magnificently increases the influence of the press, an idea really useful and generous will not die for want of money. We havo, in support of this confidence, testimony which is precious to us. Liberty of the press, guarantied by laws which repress the excesses of it, without over restraining its rights?that is what the interest of the republic demands! Thus organized, thus protected by the law, and covered by its own responsibility, the press will escape arbitrary treatment, suspensions, and all the preventive measures which in ordinary times and regular situations, would be a monstrous abuse and a reminiscence of the worst days of despotism. The press has been the arm of democracy ' ?it ought, henceforth, to be its shield and its voice. After having ;overthrown thrones, it remains to it to conciliate parties, to unite nations. Let it not complain of this part?It is the most worthy of the republic?the most glorious for humanity. Who Pnt Down the Great Parisian Insurrection I The Bitn Public (Lamartine'a organ) of the 13th tilt., notices as follows some attacks upon the late executive government, which appeared in a provincial journal:? We do not wish either to depreciate the services of the chief of the present government or to exalt the part taken by the executive eommittee. It Is In the interest of truth alone that we protest against some | statement in the Journal de Rouen. There is not a single circumstance in these statements that is not in opposition to faot. It Is false that the members of , the executive committee bad, in consequence of the peril, formed an intention of separating. It is false that the president of the Assembly had to contend against tnia combination. It is false that he bad called ; the commitUe to the hotel of the presidency, where , . M l amftrtin* nrrlvoil thn first ami ilamamlnd frnm the president n residence for him and his colleagues. It in false that it wan the president who (tare the chief I command of the troops to ticneral Cavnignae The executive committee had done this long before it went to the presidency. It ia false that the orders given to ; the troops, both inside and outside of Paris, and which savvd France, were given only after the overthrow of the executive committee. It was the executive committee which gave these orders, both before and during the combat All these assertions will be justified in due time, without leaving the shadow of a doubt in any impartial [mind. The ineml>ers of the executive committee may aeoept the etiloglnm given to the minister of war and the president of the Assembly, but they can never, in cur ronviction, accept the asper. ions which this nrtlele tends to cast upon them. Wo shell soon know w hat is justly due to each in these sad affairs. Tnr.

Tlie provisional committee transmitted the sui if twenty-five hundred dollars, yesterday, to Irelaui rhich was the amount for which they were callw ipon ; and the rest of the funds in their hand hall be duly appropriated. Now. said he. you will pel eive. from the readiness wliirh these gentlemen hav xhibited. that something must be done for Irelaml lid that that timu hoi I.nm. man mnal S ill bp means to Jo for Ireland. (Applause.) Hear nred them that there were but a few days.more wlthli ihich to act ; and not a moment is to be lost by thei n giving what they mean to give towards the libers ion of Ireland. This was a business meeting ; Meeting for carrying out those objects The prop! f Ireland call upon us to do at once what we intcn o do ; and he hoped that all who felt dlsposei rould come forth and give his mite this evening Mr. AVhiti' then moved that a committee of thro ie appointed to take the names and addresses of thoe arties in the room who were willing to subscribe, bu iho might not have any money with them, which wa inanimonsly cnnled J)r. Hooaw moved that a committee of the sam lumber be appointed to go for the same purpose tnong the thousands outside of the building who wer in able to obtain admission; whieh was also passed Messrs.

It was astotf<hin o see the enthusiasm with which the dollars wer nnded in.

He said, that for the last year or two. t?l those who had manifested sympathy, or taken part in Ml, meetings for the aid of Ireland, had boon tauntingly asked. why they were alwnys talking and n>M >r acting ?why thry were continually ge.tiig money from thr poor and simple and never applying it to any useful >e- piirpoFe. Now he hoped, the proceeding! of thai , evening would he a titling reply to these taunts " (Cheers) lie earnestly hoped that a aunt of not lesi e, than one million of dollar*) would he subscribed in thh country for the purpoio of enabling the IHsh to sehlsvt their independence.

Some might auk what the) IP Intend) <1 to do with this money Kor his part he b?,,, lieved they bad nothing to do with its .vpplication The Irish people, or tlieir representative*, were tin proper parties to have the dixpo-at > f it, and to them le. wonld be committed that responsibility. (Loud cheers ) . tbem call it patriotic scrip, or loan, or whatever " (lse they pleased, lie trusted that a grand effort would to now he made to render assistance to Ireland, and that It no men who had the means would stand aloof from the le struggle; hut if he be n?t himself able to join in it. that he will do alt he oan to enable others. (Cheers.) The Irbh people were now about to follow tho exb ample of Fiance, Italy, Sicily. Germany, and twoit thirds of Kilrope. nnd they deserved the sympathy e and assistance of all the nations in tho world. He is trusted thry would be able, even yet. to proourc all >t they wanted without bloodshed. But alter t ho occurs retires which have lately taken place, ho confessed he i- had but faint hopes that this would be the case If, d however, Kngland should again take an aggressive pod sitiou. and resorting to tho sword, seek to govern bj a the right of conquest, to the issue of tho sword it must t come. In such an event, if the Irish puoplo rose in their idr-tlisttl o. In Shu f In,,, ftf *1... .-^1....)...?. ..r ISO bo believed that all they wanted would bo conceded to tin in. and no blootlHhed would take place. If one uill) Hon of Irishmen stood up on their own soil, and deLi niHiided their independence. he believed the libit orty of lieland would be accomplished, without a blow 1? ini? struck. (Cheers.) What the Auicrin runs wished to say was, that Ireland should not be trampled down beoausu she might lie In want of i. the sinews of war. If, therefore, strenuous exertions u were now mode, ho believed that the Irish people n would be disenthralled and liliernted before the 1st of y January next (Loud cheers.) That was hia belief, s Their cause was a good one, and had the sympathies a of i \ery republican and every friend of humanity r throughout the world. (Cheers.) The more strongly d the people of Ireland now stood up for their rights, the t inure aid would they receive from this country and every other country ia Um world; and tki wHka> ir mane would be the contest, and the less blood would u be spilt. (Cheers) It was incumbent on theiu all, therwt fore, to pull tcguthpr in this cause. There was uot one d at that meeting who bad not a friend in some part of >- the country; let that friend b? written to without :t delay, and he asked for the amount lie was willing to ;t give for aiding the Irish struggle (Cheers ) lie was i. much struck by what he had heard from a man whom it he saw ns he entered the room; this nmu was eagerly e inquiiing for the treasurer in order to hand him his >t subscription: uud observed, that he had from two to y three hundri d men under hiin on a railroad, at pre r sent con-trueting in the State, and that every inau r i of them whs willing to subscribe one month's pny for if | Ireland, if tile struggle was to take place. (Cheers ) a The same spirit he believed pervaded the whole country, 1. and if every one did not wish to give a month's p iy ho i. whs sure that no oue would object to give a week's ! (Chiers.) If this plan were generally carried out, no i. J oratory would be required the thing would b? done. { Every exertion must now be made. Let any one who i. ; lias a fricud in Cincinnati, Louisville, Chicago, or any e where else, write to him forthwith for his first instali meut. (Cheers ) Now was the time for their energy e and perseverance ; and he trusted the subscription b would be again proceeded with, and that every one | a w oubi give with liberality. (Loud cheers ) Collections were agaiu received.nud the money came b pouring in like hail. After a brief interval, 1 Osn.

O'I'omner, Esq., being repeatedly called for, rose and sniJ:? Kellrw citizens. 1 appear before you tor night as I never did before. 1 now come before you I wftli pleasure, because now there has beon a fraterni. ration of Irishmen 1 did not come here to speak, and ! speech making will never obtain the freedom or lr?* land; if it would, I should have spoken her ft-oo long , i ago. We have talked of arms and blood, but now we L want money, and money we must have, which we can ' ! send to oui brethren, and England shall not know ? I what we are doing. Now is the time lor every man to , | throw In his mite, that the causa of the freedom of Ire'j ' land may press forward. There is now no harrier. The f j humble and the rich meet together, which will be more I feared by England than all the gold that could bo ? I heaped up for Ireland. A union of the Irishmen is ? wbBt has long been desired; and now that glorious ob_ I jert is consummated, the result of which will be there I will be no backwardness on the part of the friends of ? our oppressed country to give libertilly. This, my fel? low citizens, is no time for speaking; the call is to Immediate action. There are some ot the presses of this 1 country, which have spoken of the discontent which " lias heretofore existed in different parties of the friends l of Ireland, but they will no more hnve cause to s^cak _ of that. We nro in one bond of brotherhood. My " countrymen, for two years past, you hare hoard the lS cries of your mothers and sisters coming across the . Atlantic, while pestilence and famine hare taken bold I strides across our unhappy country. You have seen, in days by-gone, the immense herd sof cattle driven . over youi native hills; the Immense llocks of sheep leaving your country, and you could not procuro a n morsel to cat. They were driven from you, to be feasty ed upon by tho Knglish nobility. Help now, and Ire, land will no more call upon you. \ ou almost daily ? see the great mass of almost living death landing upon our shores; those who have boon driven from their own e> homes, because they could not obtain that upon which to support nature. That too will cease, and grateful 0 Ireland will repay you with the rich productions of her l" soil and art; ami will grow up great BMW to sjand at the helm of state. We are now in one bond of union, as I K before said; in that union let us go on. and though the ' place is warm, and my friend wishes to send the Kng. fish aristocrats to a warm climate, I would rather that '? the great object should be achieved without blood; but ! If the oppressors of our country will not submit other' wire, they must take the consequences. Co inn out on Monday night, and let the tews go by the steamer first * leaving thereafter, to tho people nf Ireland, that wo are ' ! doing more than wc have ever done before. He s&t * ; down amidst the deafening applause of the assembly "J ] Mr. WiLMA't Roeixso* was th?n called for, who Tory g | briefly stated some facts which ho had to-day learned, j relative to the position of Canada, in the present crisis, 0 with a few remarks touching the present state of af; fairs in IreUnd, and the necessity of prompt action. He raid:?My friends and fellow citizens?I have come here to-night, not for the purpose of speaking, but to join in the general thanksgiving toOod, that the great curse whloli has so long held Ireland in bondage is rer' moved, and there is now union and harmony among ,! the Irishmen of this city The factions are dissolved. > and now we can meet together as brethren. We want r no speeches?the mcst eloquent language at this time .' is the jingle of your contributions. All selfish follies are passed away, and buried in the grave, and the resurrectlon of Ireland from the grave is fast approach' ing. I came here to work, but find it a pleasure; and a though I shall have to labor for three hours after I lt have this place, that labor will be sweetened by the rej collection that there has been plea-ure in the scene. There Is now no doubt as to the manner in which the money will be expended. When the work is done, the e committee will tell you how they hare expended it.and the character of that committee is sueh that there is 0 no room for a doubt. I shall leave this city in a few days, for Buffalo, to attend a meeting friendly to Iren land, at which ex-Oovernor Seward will speak, and n I pledge myself, during the next week, to raise $6000 for the cause. The report from Canada is favorable. a I have talked with an honest Kngllahinau from I'ana? da. to-day. who says that colony is in a very bad way. ,1 and though it is sometimes said we may kill two birds 1 with one stone. it wouldhe a great thing if two repuh' lies could be created nt one blow; and I am Inclined e to think if Kngland does not behave herself, Canada p win mi.ii up n pnrv 01 uhh country, or a stater republic ^ beside us. Those men who were most favorable to the j, perpetration of the petticoat government haro come out moat boldly in favor of a republic; and it will uot bo strange If she loses the beat of her colonies bet i, the money come, and the jingle will tell to K ngl inj p what we are doing. If a man has no more let him give a (lppeuny bit, and that will buy a ball. I will r not speak longer, but will propose three cheers for Ireland. >' Thrre hearty cheers were then given after which tho ,( names of many, with the amount they had subscribed. were resd. and again the deafening shout went up. g Here was an intermission for some minntes, during ,( which time the money was pouring in from every g quarter .?

The vast crowds that had collected about nine o'clock soon jammed up every available place of accommodation, in the lurgc ball, where the principal stand was erected, and. accordingly, several were excluded, and many who had been auioag the denoe throng within, made their way to the open air through the admirable exertions of the " Irish brigade," who were actively on duty on the occasion nud kept the avenues open.
