During the last few days, in consequence of the alarming intelligence which has been received from Ireland, of the spread of seditious prtnoldIcs. those entrusted with the iu-cm-iration of thv t>ub ftc peace at Edinburgh. have'been particularly active in making ihem> elves masters. an tar as pmt-lble, ot tile movements of these parties, and of the course which they might ailopt iti the event of an outbreak taking place in ihe sister kingdom. From what has transpired it appearp that constables in disguise have mixed wilh the repealers iu the Cowgate, a portion of the city almost exclusively inhabited by the Irish, in order to ascertain with what feelings they regarded the state of matters in Inland and what dependence might be pland upon their loyalty. In-tbe course of their investigations, it is said that it was found to be too appai ent that the greater portion of the Irish part of the population strongly sympathised with their fellow countrymen in Ireland, who espoused physical force doctrines; and it is stated that the inquiries that were made proved that meetings were regularly held every Sunday evening, in certain brokers' houses, at which the Dublin Felon was read, and the course to be pursued, in the event of an outbreak, was discussed. It was also found that a considerable number of copies of the Ftlon newspaper were weekly received from Dublin. In reference to the chartists, it became known that. they we forming themselves into clubs; and it is reported tLat the authorities are pretty conversant with what passes at them. Whatever information the public authorities may have derived in this way, it is impossible to say ; but it would appear that it is of such a afore as caUs upon them to take active and immediate steps for the suppression of sedition. We learn that warrants are out for two or three more of the leaders, so that it is not unlikely that, iu the course of to-day, all the violent spirits will be in custody, and the movement virtually at an end, so far as Kdinurgh is concerned. On Monday night a meeting of repealers and chartists * as held on the Caltou hill, to sympathise with the confedetates in Ireland in their revolutionary I regress, at *hicli violent speeches were made, and . quully violent resolutions were passed. Since then the authorities would appear to have matured their measures ; for, on Wednesday, three of the leading chartists were arreBted by them Their names are ltankine. Cumming, and Walker It would appear, horn ever. that their arrest is not in consequence of the meeting just referred to ; for the charge on which they have been apprehended is of a general character. It in understood to be. that they are guilty of attending illegal meeting*, of delivering addresses at these, and of advising the lieges to arm for the purpose of overthrowing her Majesty 's government, and of attending club meetings, ko. After having undergone examination before the sherilf. they were lodged in the Calton gaol at about nine o'clncK in the evening. Three chartists were also apprehended ; but one of these was liberated on bail, and the other two were dismissed. We also understand that warrants are issued against other ringleaders. The authorities also fened a quantity of correspondence in the office of a newspaper railed the North British Express, which is published under the superintendence of the chartist committee, and the books and ether articles found on the premises. Mr. Smith the agent of the paper in Ul&Fgow. has been also apprehended in that city. It is not known whether the authorities have at prevent any intention to stop the publication of the paper. It is said that there are twelve chartist elubs in Edinburgh. Gumming and Ratikinewere the delegates to the late chartist convention at London. Walker is the printer of the Express, the only chartist paper in Scotland The trial of the Bradford rioters came on at the York assises on Wednesday. John Johnson, Krancis Vicory, llenry Walton. " William Smith, Henry W'hitcombe. James Down. Isaiah licaton. Wm Connor, Wm. Winterburn. and Wm. Sagar were indicted for a riot and for assaulting a police officer at Bradford. on the 2f'th of May Our readers will rememoer the circumstances of the case. It was stated in the course of the evidence, tbut some of the mob, in the riots in question. were armed with sticks. James Down carried a red hot soldering iron, with which he struck right and left; and when William Sagar was taken into custody a large dagger was concealed in his breast, which he acknowledged he had intended to use. All the pritoners were identified as taking an aci-ive part in the riot. His Lordship, in summing up. said that nothing could be more satisfactory than the manner in which, whenever the power of the law had bi en disputed, the law had been signally maintained; that it was not the right of persons to bo spectators; all the Queen's subjects were bound to assist the officers ; and it is not lawful for them to stand byand quietly to look on when the public peace' was disturbed. The jury retired for a short time, and returned with a verdict of guilty against all the prisoners except llenry Walton, who was deaf. They found him not guilty. Sentence deferred. 0Birmi*gham.? On Monday night the inhabitants of the Bull King were much surprised by the sudden and unexpected appearance of a number of chartists and repealers, who had inarched in procession from a meeting in the People's Hall. Loveday street. The meeting u as in t called by any public announcement or demon traticn. and would seem to have been the result of : one Secret organisation The numbers have been estimated by some at 2000 ; others say less ; but ,in all probability tb< re were at least 800 men present. On arnvi'v f the Bull King they commenced groaning at 1 i-.-i - ; and before leaving, an announcement vasnwuieof nother meeting. ADDITIONAL INTELLIGENCE, TO THE VERY LATEST MOMENT, FROM AM. PARTS nr riiRAPH. iAAiJU M ill? Jl VA' ?J%> A?VA JUf received by Slectric Telegraph from London* From oar Correspondent. Livekpool, Saturday Afternoon, July 2.9. The following comprises an epitome of the latest news from Ireland, London, Paris, and other parts of Europe :? Fruct. Paris. Friday Noon. Our Paris correspondent states that the Paris papers, Commerce and the Palrit, have been sold by auetion, fcc. |M. Girardin bid 25,000f.; a Paris . banker, however, bid 26,000f., and he became the pur- i chaser. It is raid that the party already owns two- 1 thirds of the journals. The Municipal Commission of Paris have voted the j re-establishment of the 01 troi duty on meat, which had 1 been abolished by the late Provisional Government This duty, it is said, produces a city revenue of six , millions of francs. Paris, Friday, 5 P. M. The Bourse was heavy throughout the day. Confl- | dence in the acting government was still expressed and felt in every quarter, but no great decided im- j provement was yet manifest. Letters from the Piedmont army mentioned that the Austrian army had gained possession of the Pla- | teau of Rivoli. The King of Naples protested against the separation of Sicily from Naples. La J'rtut has not yet re-appeared. The ame nded budget was the subject of an animated j discussion in the National Assembly on Thursday ; I the principal feature of which, was the retiring pension allowed to public servants of the ministry, j The result was the appointment of a sub-committee, to prepure a decree on the subject, for submission to the Assembly. The bill for regulating the clubs and secret societies j occupied a large portion of the time of the As.-embly <>u 1 hurt day. The clause under discussion was the 13th ; the object of which is to suppress secret societies ; but the chief difficulty seemed to be to detlne what, secret societies were. An amendment was proposed by M. J Havre to the effect that it should apply only to those of apolitical character. '1 Ills wa- opposed by the Minister of the Interior, ou the ground that it would be better that the measure should extend to the soeieties net having the sancti- n of the governmen', and the measure was so p .- ed an i agreed, to by tk. .

They are chiefly confined to describing the reception of the Nuncio at La Grangia, with the address delivered by the latter, and the reply of the Queen, which took place on the 22d. Other letters state that to compensate for the disappointment which hae, for the present, j deprived the Queen Regent of the hopes of an heir, the Queen mother is in a condition to present a tenth | child to M.

Our llayonne correspondent, under date of the 26th, announces that a body of 2,000 convicts had revolted at Valladolid, massacred their guards, and fled into the country, crying that they were going to join the Montemolinlst bands in La Mancha. The Queen was so far recovered as to be able to set up; her majesty is expected to make her appearance in public again in a few days. A commission has been appointed to report on the national debt, and it is stated by our correspondent, that it is to recommend the interest shall not commence to be paid for fou?- years. Our correspondent dots not state what consideration is to be given for the accommodation. We suspect that your readers, on your side of the Atlantic, are not ambitious to be scrip-holders of Spanish stock under such a liberal "promise to pay" interest?not principal. Italy. Our advices from Italy bring tbe important intelligence tbat the legations hare broken out in open insurrection against the Pope. At Bologna, a provisional government had been formed, of which Messrs. Antonini and Canute were members, and presided over by Count Beauchini. Tbe cause of the revolt is stated to be the part the Pope has taken in reference to the war of independence in Lombardy. The Mamiani ministry were still in office, but their position was very precarious. La Patria. of the 21st, contains a copy of a protest by the King of Naples against the election of the Duke of Genoa as King of Sicily. Another advan- i tage had been obtained by the I'iedmontese over the ' Austrian*; 20.000 of the latter made a sortie from Ve- j rona. The advanced guard of 3,000 men allowed itself to be surrounded by two Piedmontese brigades, and j was obliged to lay down arms. A general engagement took place, in which the 17,000 Austrians were defeat- i ed. Another sortie made by the Austrians, number- ! ing 7,000, from Mantua, was repulsed by 4,000 Roman j and Tuscan troops. Verona, it was said, was to be : bombarded on the 19th. The Dthats contains a letter from Rome of the 18th instant, which fays_ that 6000 Austrians had crossed the Po, and entered Ferrara. Tbe French ambas- ! sador, on hearing the news, bad a long conference i with the Pope. I Germany. It is assumed that the Polish question, which is to come before tbe National Assembly, will be discussed as a war question. The Crops In England. In every district, the wheat crops are healthy and abundant. Along the southern coast ef Jaugland. a good deal is cut. and also in Norfolk, Kent, Herts, aad 1 Bedfordshire. The barley crops are good, but back- i ward. The oat crop looks well, and in the south a good i deal is cut and garnered. Other descriptions of agri- i cultural produce look well. The weather has for tne last seven days been cold and wet; and if this conti- i nues, the crops will,be much alTected, und the markets will look up. ! There is a prospect of a very small crop of fruit this | year; and of apples and pears the failure will be con- I siderable. This will leave an opening for the exportation of Amerlctn apples, which, in this couutry. are considered a great luxury, and un ornament to'the desert table in Kngland. i Markets. j 1 Liverbool Cottoi* Market, July 20.?Sales to-day I j 4000 bales.

I Sn k.ness at the State Pbijom?We have no dis- 1 position to withhold from the public the tact, that the shdic complaint which now prevails in this section of the country, exists to an alarming extent at the Sing Sing prison, wnere it is attended with very malignant i fiHluree. The physicians and officers at the prison stand by their post manfully, and are doing every r thing in their power to arrest the disease, and save the lives of those already attacked. When we consider i lii? number of persons collected together at the pri. t son. Its results have not been more fatal than in other portions rf the community. Several of the officers 1 t have been attacked with it. who are now better; some, i ? however, we are sorry to fay. are yet dangerously sick. u Mr. Neil, the agent for Hodgkisa it Smith, is the only 1 person connected with the prison, who has yet died ' t with this complaint; he was burled on Sunday last, j t snd we learn Irom his friends, that in big case the > ? disesse never yielded to the most powerful medical ! , prescriptions. Considering the great number of con- | victs who have been attacked, the deaths are com- 1 j aratively few; at onetime seventy-live were on sick r< led- with one hundred and twenty-tire applications t in in other patients, some of whom have >iuc-e been p taken to Hie hospital, uud others cured.

The Detention of the Mails.?The deten- j tion of the steamer Acadia in Boston harbor by 1 the fog, and the bungling manageflrtrftf of the agent ' ^ of the company, formed the subject of a conversa- j c tion at a meeting of the passengers, in the saloon j * of the steamer, on Sunday last. ! S Apait from the grievances complained of by the y passengers, in the following resolutions, the whole j 1 mercantile community have equal cause to repn- j, mand the qgents or managers, for the injuries the , ? detention of the mails caused in their business matters. Had the Captain of the Acadia given the mails to the Xahanten when he was (jrst solicited, ' ei hey would have been transmitted soifth on Sun- w lay, about noon, instead of Monday afternoon; and tl bad there been a little more generosity exhibited, * anil fpwpr thrpafa mmlp thp r?aoennrrora ufA?U have left the ship under different impressions, and * the dignity of the captain saved from the unplea- N sant position in which it was at one time placed. ?j The steamer lay at anchor almost within hailing 1)1 Listance of Xaliunt; and, although it has been ]a always customary with nations to tender every " facility possible to officers having government a] despatches, yet Col. Sloo, who was in possession p< ?f important documents, was refused permission jjj o leave the ship, and the small boats that were g< jfloring their services, prohibited from touching * he steamer under any consideration. Capt. Stone S( went so far as to threaten to kick the first who dis- 0 obeyed his orders, which caused one of the passengers to advise the Captain, very decidedly, not at 0 carry out his threat, and he did not. 8) The officers of the ship, nlthough carrying out h? he orders with more severity than the case war- by anted, was not wholly to blame. lie is com- it >elled to follow {.the directions of the agents RB is regards the affair at point, and is, perhaps, in Gf 1 measure exonorated from blame; but, as a gen- ^ lenian, a more amiable course of proceedings or night have been expected from him.

Bowery Theatre?As is always the ease, there was . crowded house at this theatre last night, and the lerformances were of the very first order. The enterainment commenced with the laughable comedy Of Nix, the Cabman," in which Mr. Winans, inhis own riginal and laughable style, sustained the part of Dick v'ix The piece went off with great eclat. The grand nd beautiful opera of " Cinderella" was then preented ; and we must say, never has it been presented n this city with such effect. Miss Mary Taylor, ,s Cinderella, was received with the greatest enliusiann, and not unjustly, for she played her port n beautiful style. The whole of the parts were performd in first iate style. Here Mr. Stevens appeared in font of the curtain, and announced that the difficulty >f the night previous, between Miss Turnbull and Mr. imitb, had been amicably adjusted, and they would, vitli the permission of the audience, dance the folka Rationale." Mr. bmith alter mature delljcration. acknowledged that he had acted ungener>usly and unmanly ; but he was now willing te dance Kith Miss Turnbull during her engagement at this Lbt atre. This announcement was received with the (reiitest applause, and many voices exclaimed, "That's ill we want!" Mr. Stevens then led Mr. S. and Miss 1' before the audience, when the house resounded with applause. The curtain then rose, and Mr. Smith ind Miss Turnbull appeared in the "Polka." whioh teas received with deafening applause ; and so great was the enthusiasm, that they were obliged to repeat it ; after which, three tremend. us cheers were given for Miss T. Mr. S. and Signora Ciocca then appeared in the Polka, and a disposition to hiss was manirested.which was immediately put down by the applause )f the audience. They were encored, and loudly apilauded. The grand ballet of the "Magic Flute" vound up the performance, in which Signora Ciocca ippeared as Lira, and Mr. Smith as Lubtai. The liece was received with great applause, and properly, or Ciocca is an accomplished danseuse. She was ailed out after the falling of the curtain, so great ras the enthusiasm. The whole performance passed iff most quietly, plainly showing the tact and manigen.cnt of Mr llamblin. whose aim is always for the 'Ublic's amusement, and will not allow disorder to xi?t around him. The Bowery is still the place to ;o to. Niblo's, Astor Place.?The admired burletta of He is Not A-miss," was performed here last evening, n which Mr. John Sefton. as Mr. 1'rettyman, kept the louse convulsed with laughter, through his humorous lersonations of the part. He was well supported by hat capital actress, Mrs. Maeder. as Mrs. Prettyman, ind Mr. Baker, as Frederick Fit/.allan, (his first apearance at this highly fashionable theatre.) who susained the part with much ability. "Ladies, Beware," ras the next piece presented. Mr. Sefton came forrard prev ous to the performance, and stated that in onu quence of the uon-arrival of Mrs. Watts, Miss ioberts would take the part of Grace I'eubody. which he sustained with much cleverness; Mr. Dawson, as iir Charles Vavasour, was excelleut, and Matilda, by liss Telbin. was admirably performed. This evening rill be presented a highly attractive bill: and Mr. iackett will nppear. as also Mr. Vandenhoff. The ombination ot high and varied talents to be found ere. and the splendid manner in which the pieces are otup, make this new theatre the grand centre of eveing attractions, particularly for our up-town fashionbles. Bi BTon's Theatre.?The performance Intended last rening for the benefit of that Rascal Jack, Mr. Duan, entoffina very finestyle. The romantic, transatlanc tic. extravagaBzs, called " Valentine and Orson,') as played with a great deal of tntrain and mirth, and tclted bursts of laughter among the many bearers who ffe present to congratulate thdlr friend the binifiiaire Mies Sinclair, a very fine young lady, and Irs. Brougham, the most splendid woman on the lew York stage, except Mrs Shaw, performed their rrts with great humor. As for Mr. Brougham and his par. Mr. John Dunn and his Hugo Learo, they were J funny, witty, and merry as comported with the .ughable parts imparted to them by the author. The Blue Devils," in which Mr. Barton appeared, was layed last The |popular sketch of the u Old Hoard lorded Mr. Niokinson and his talented daughter oprtunities to display their histrionic sympathies and elings ; and their exertions were rewarded with ucb applause. We foretel Miss Nickinson a very >od career in her profession. The whole concluded ilh the burlertjue of " I.ucy did Sham Amour." We e in the bills for this evening that " Dombey and >n" will be repeated, together with "Valentine and rson." This is a good net, and {will catch many ay goers. National Theatre.?This beautiful housewas fully j tended last evening, and presented a most brilliant i jpearance. The splendid new adornments which { ive been made during the recess, were finely set olT ; the elegant appearance of the dress circle, filled as was. with ladles and family parties. The perform- j ices were most interesting. The pretty little piece " Nature and Philosophy," was the first piece play; alter which came "Charles 2nd," with J. It. ott as Copp. the old captain of Wapping. and we do >t Know that we have ever seen this part played better. ie rough old captain, with his love for his pretty ice, was given to perfection ; and we do not wonder his being proud of such a neice as Miss Mestavcr ( ide. This little drama is founded on one of the links of Charles 2d. the merry monarch, and his ' end Rochester. and is really quite an interesting | | >ry. The rest of the performances went olf well. | ie National Theutre has commenced well?a beauti- , 1 house, a good company, handsome scenery, and an ' terprising management, will all combine to keep it to its present high standard.

The Hri:anir.!?T opened the proceeding* by stating hat this wan not the regular night of meeting, but, in onrei|Uence of the urgency of the present crisis, it ras of the greatest importance that no time should be est in combining all iheir ewrtions so a* to strengthn the hands of the Irish directory. Thero was a rule n their books which prevented the admission of any lemher to the society without a few months' previous lotice Now he considered that at the present time t, would be advisab'e to d'spense with that regulation, nd he wished that a motion to thut effect would bo ubmitetd to him, a s he was sure that, by doing so, hey should obtain a large accession to their ranks, nd a large amount of assistance for Ireland, lie " sight observe, as a reason for tho thinness of the ttendauce of the leading members, that they were hat evening engaged iu other parts of the city organzing new clubs, a ad enrolling additional members. A motion was then proposed, and unanimously caried. that the rule of the society, repairing a month's lotice. previous to enrolment, should be dispensed rith. A great number of members were then proposed, econded and enrolled Mr. CotiiiEV then addressed the meeting, and said hat. from the enthusiasm which prevailed, he feared e should be unable to s*y anything worthy of hi* ova ?elings or of the occa?ion. After reverting to the hsnge which bad taken place in the policy of their soiety, from moral to physical force, he proceeded to xplain the reasons of the change. How long could ny one feel regard for morel force, or the workings of he constitution, when the Ktihtas corpus act was susended, and A'500 and ?300 were offered for the heads f the leaders of the Irish people ' (Cheers) He rged upon them the necessity of redoubling their editions.

(( heers.) Mr. Nugent was now about to address the meeting, rben he was interrupted by the loud cheers, which lailed the entrance of Mr Horace Greeley. Mr. Horace Gkkei.fy then addressed the meeting. Ie said that he had great apprehension as to the deserate struggle ou which they were entering, for when ie considered the cost of life and blood that must be aid for the liberties of Ireland it filled hini with sadless. When he considered the diversion, however, rhlch might be made in Kngland in favor of Ireland, tgave him some ground for hope, if one good battla lad been fought and won in Ireland they would hav? .million in Lngiand at their back, and there could >e no doubt but a great step would be gained for Irish ndependence. (Cheers.) He did not much like the luerilla warfare, which was proposed by the leaders of reland, for this required lesources and food, and trong fastnesses. He believed that protracted warare was not th( way to success. Now. if 100 000 men use and gained a complete decisive battle, then there light be some grounds for hope. (Cheers.) if they ntcred into the struggle in this spirit, Ireland might epend upon the aid of this country, and all the ivers of freedom over the world (Cheers) No ne would fail to help them. (Tremendous cheerng.) There wag do man in this country rbo would not be willing to give one-third of hia eekly income, or at any rate, one dollar a week, ir two years, o* as long as the struggle lasted.
