New* from Ireland. QThe Cambria will be due at this port to-morrow, | with one week's later intelligence from Ireland, and other parts of Europe. We may, however, receive her news to-day. The advices from Ireland are looked for with the greatest anxiety. The Presidential Klectlon. The tables we published in the Herald of the 17th inst., showing the party estimates of the respective friends of Gen. Cass and Gen. Taylor, with regard to the prospects of each for the Presidency, will probably attract the" attention of politicians, who are thus enabled to see, at a glance, the aspect of the Presidential chess-board. In the estimates given by us,we hav&of course only taken into consideration the views entertained by sensible and shrewd calculators ol the democratic and whig parties ; disregarding the opinions and assertions of silly and hair-brained politicians of either side,'who claim, for their respective candidates, the votes of whatever State they happen to reside in. Thus we see " free soil" democrats claiming a majority of the electoral votes f the whole Union for Van Buren, when the strong probabilities are that he cannot carry a single State or electoral vote; and some of the Cass editors claiming Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland and Tennessee?while a few of the over zealous Taylor whigs pretend to claim Maine, Virginia, South Caiolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas. Illinois and Michigan. Such calculations are unworthy the notice of men of common observation, and should he considered either as the views of sanguine or uninformed politicians, or those of editors and other cniployics of party in the various States, wluise interest lies in making a show of fight, whether with hopes or not, as they expect rewards, either in the shape of money from politi- | cal friends, or the spoils of office, if they should | happen to be among the v.ctors. The statements we have given show that eightyfour of the electoral votes of the Union are conceded to Cass and Butler by the whigs, and that one hundred and ten electoral votes are generally conceded to Taylor and Fillmore by the democratic friends of Cass and Butler?leaving ninetysix electoral votes contested, or claimed by both ct the leading parties The following are the 1 States thus contested, or what may be considered the battle ground at the ensuing Presidential election, viz.:? States. Electoral votes. Pennsylvania -6 North Carolina 11 Georgia 10 i Lousiana 6 Ohio 23 1 Indiana 12 i leva 4 | Wisconsin 4 Total SO , To elect General Cass, sixty-two of the above votes are required, besides those conceded to hiin , by ,he whigs viz., eighty-four, according to our table, while General Taylor requires thirty-six, only, of the votes pi the contested States, in addition to the one hundred and ten conceded to him by the democrats?one hundred and forty-six votes ] being a majority of those pf oJJ tfrr electoral col- ^ leges. I To enable our readers to form their own calculations as to probabilities, we present the fol- ? lowing statement of the popular vote of the con- t tested States, at the last Presidential election:?

Hut the "free soil" tuestion is popular in both of ! these States, and it is supposed will divert many 1 democratic votes from Cass and Hutler. We shall follow up these statements, by giving an impartial view of the present state of public opinion in the contested States, and the probable influence of the "free soil" question upon those of them which are situated north ot Mason A* Dixon's line.

If the confederates were ever sincere in bringing matter* to an issue, the blow has been struck before now In the Herald ofTuesday of last week., we untici. pated nearly all that had hapi>ened up to the sailing of the steamer. We stated that the bill brought in by Lord .lohn > .11 u i : .1 . ~ . . ii iviiDcr 11 wuiuu unu^ on me crisis ; iimi 11 would be in cfiect a suspension of the writ of ahbeas corpus ; that the Lord Lieutenant would have the. power under it of arresting every person?whether friend or enemy?and keeping him 111 prison until the act expired, and that the leaders of the clubs would be the first victims ; but it seems these gentlemen also anticipated what was to happen, and they very prudently, in our opinion, absqua. tulated ; for we cannot agree with the writers in the English papers, that they have shown the white feather?that they have been guilty of an act of cowardice?because they have not waited until the Lord Lieutenant put a grain ?f salt on their tails and landed them quietly,, in Newgate. But be this as it may, according to the accounts in the ^Jnglish papers the government are lully aware that Smith O'Brien, Meagher, and the other leaders, are at Carrick-on-.Suir, surrounded by the peasantry of Tipperary.. Now, Carrick-on-Suir is the centre of a circle ?the circuit of which is fifty miles. Within, or on the line of this circle, ut different points, namely, Clonniel, Waterford, Kilkenny, Cahir, and Cashel, ?all military stations?there are from eight to ten regiments of the line, which might be marched few hours' notice. With these facilities,and knowing, as the goverment did, where these men were to be found, it is exceedingly strange that they would incur the exjiense and trouble of offering a reward of ?500 for the apprehension of Mr. Smith O'Brien, and ?300 for the arrest of each of the others. These facts, in connection with the tremendous preparations making by the British government, in Ireland, to sustain it against some desperate meditated attack, or a protracted guerilla warfare, lead us to think that matters are not quite so smooth as the English papers would have us believe. It would not at all surprise us if the confederate chiefs, having, as it now seems, the uncontrolled command of the rural districts of Tipperary?the most disaffected of any in Ireland?organized a council there, and kept up a communication with the counties of Southmeath, Westmeath, on the northwest, with Kildare, Wicklow, and the Kings county on the southeast, and with Waterford and Wexford on the south, nor if they raised an army of 100,000 men, divided into two divisions, and made a simultaneous attack on Dublin?one division, to be composed of the men ofMeath, South and Westmeath, to attack the city on the north ; the other division, to be composed of the men of Kildare. Wicklow. Wexford. . to attack it on the seuth, and that these attacks should be supported by the clubs and the citizens. Should they adopt this plan, the Lord Lieutenant will be placed in a very akward position; he will, to say the least of it, have hot work on his hands, and perhaps run the risk of being,I3urgoyned, into,the bargain. it the next steamer does not bring news of the capture of the conlederates, we will conclude that some plan of this kind is contemplated. Tke Acadia's Mails.?We have received a communication irom the special agent ot the Post Office Department, on the subject ot the provoking delay in the receipt of the Acadia's mails. We are satisfied, from this and other evidence in our possession, that Cave Johnson is all right in this instance. We insert a portion ot the statement of the agent, who it appears was on board the Acadia. Dear Sir:?I notice a disposition, in some quarters) to censure the United States Post Office Department, on accouDtof the unusual delay in forwarding to New York the foreign mails brought by the steamer Acadia. 1 feel it my duty to state that our department are entirely free from all blame,or responsibility in the matter. A special express bad been arranged by authority of the Postmaster General, to convey the mails to your city in case the steamer should arrive on Saturday night or Sunday; but although the Acadia came to anchor within ten miles of Boston, at an earlv hour l on Sunday, her captain refused every opportunity to fend the mails up to the city, till aliout fire o'clock Monday morning. The regular mail line via Sew Haven, leaven .Boston at seven o'clock, A M., and thus little or no time was afforded to assort and stamp the letters at the Boston office, and prepare them for New York and the South. The writer of this was on board the Acadia during her detention, and is of the opinion that the mails might have been sent up to the city with perfect safety, at any time during the day, in which case the New York and Southern matter would have been promptly despatched by special express, under the .order of the Postmaster General, at the expense of the Pest Office Department. This fair and plain statement of facts which j throws the whole responsibility of the delay in for- 1 warding the Acadia's mails on the steamship company or their agents. According to the system adopted by the Admiralty agent wiio has ! charge of these mails, he deposits them in the American post offices, and takes a receipt for j them. Then, ard not till jhen have, our J'ostinasters any control over them. It will be ! seen, therefore, that our post offices are not culpa- i tile in the least for the vexatious delay, but, rather, I ire entitled to much praise, for the arrangements 1 that were made to send the mails by special ex. press. What was there to prevent the Admiralty i agent from getting on board the Boston steamboat that hailed the Acadia early on Sunday morning, and taking the mails with him to the city 1 Nothing that we can conceive; and if he is not i aware of the "importance of despatch in such mat. I ters, we think his place ought to be filled by some i person more competent to transact its duties. The incident connected with the delivery of j ifwepapTs Jjroin the Acadia to the steamboat, i rails for some remarks ironi the press. When he captain of the latter asked for 'ate newstapers, two or three were thrown to him, which, ortunately for the community throughout the vhole country, got into the hands of the press in 3oston, and the agents of the New York press, rhey contained intelligence of unfavorable har- ( . est weather in England, and a consequent rise in ; he prices of grain. Now, there are many men I ngaged in produce speculation in Boston, who ivould have willingly given a large sum for this riece of news; for, by telegraphing it to New i'ork, and thence ^outh, they would have been enabled to operate in the grain and corn markets i full day in advance of every one else, and have lad an unfair advantage over all competitors rhis was one of the |>ossibilities of the delay in unding the mails. The passengers, it appears, were not allowed to eave the Acadia, and proceed to Boston, which was only ten miles distant, in the Nahant boat ; ind the excuse given for this refusal, we learn, is. that there is a law of Congress forbidding it. No such law exists. A law, however, is in force, forbidding captains arriving here to allow passengers and their baggage to leave their vessels, for this obvious reason, that their baggage has to be inspected regularly, by custom house officers, in order to prevent or detect smuggling ; but there is no prohibition against passengers landing without their baggage. Altogether, there is much cause for complaint in the matter. < >ur merchants lost one day by the delay. Knlistment ok 8iinous.?We are requested by the first lieutenant of the Cumberland, to state that there ts nothing allowed to officers of the navy for shipping men ; that there is no bounty of two dollars for each man shipped. Miarellaneou*. An Irish sympathy meeting was held In Boston, on the 1 Uth Inst , at wlileh $'4(100 were subsorllxtd to aid tbe Irish patriots In their struggle for liberty. Iraer Neville Kleeson, formerly one of the editors of the .Imrriran yiog published at M stun ore", Mexico, died at that place, on the '4'ith July, aged -it years. Mr. Presley >1. t'ralg, one ef tbe oldest surgeons of tbe U. S. Army, died at New Orleans on the 3th ln*t. Gel.

The contract system, so long urged upon the Common Council, but which was adopted by that body a short time since, went into operation on Thursday, the 10th mst. Annexed is the disposition of the contracts tor cleaning the streets :? The first district: consisting of the 1st. lid and 3d ward*, was taken by Thomas Butler $10,600 Second district, 3d, 5th and 8lh wards, John Meggs 11.500 Third district, 6th, 7th and 10th wards, Thomas Butler 12,000 Fourth district. 11th and 13th wards, Anthony Dugro 8,GOO Fifth district. 14th, 16th and 17th wards, taken by wards, viz Fourteenth. Geo Gallagher $4500 1 Fifteenth, Geo Riley 4800 S 13.100 Seventeenth, Geo. Schwartz. 3890 j Sixi h district, 9th, 16th and 18th wards, was also taken by wards, viz:? Ninth ward, Jas W. Bush $5000 ) Sixteenth ward. John Brudy 3300 > 11,800 Kighteenth ward, Smith k Milliken. . ,. 3500 ) Total amount $C7,OUO Only sixty-seven thousand dollars lor cleaning the entire city for one year! We say only, because, compared with the cost of previous years, it is a small sum. We can see the difference in iavor of the contract system in the following brief statement:? Amount expended in 1847 $180,069 58 Lets for eale of manure '29,687 69 Actual cost of cleaning streets last year.. .$150,371 89 Cost (torn Aug. 10, 1818, to Aug. 10, 1849, per contract 67,090 00 Amount saved by contract $83,281 89 There is some hope, whilst saving this amount in one year. But it is not the saving alone that we gain by this new system; we are to have a clean city also. Streets are not to be swept twice a year, but twice a week; and if the contractor do not fulfil his part of the bargain, he forfeits his contract, his manure, his$?000, and something else. The Alderman and Assistant Alderman of each ward are to see that the work is well done, or the contractor gets no pay; and if the Aldermen neglect their duty, the people can take care of them, by a short walk to the ballot box in the next street. This contract system will work well. We have faith in it. The contractors are to have the $G7,090, all the manure, the silver spoons that the servants may throw into the streets with their garbage, for keeping the city clean for one year. We believe that if they are good men, and understand their business, they will be glad to do the work for $50,000 inanother year, and perhaps for less, rather than to lose me jod. we are on tne right tracK now, and the public are indebted to Assistant Alderman Webb, of the Sixteenth ward, and one or two others on the contract committee, for their exertions in getting this system adopted. The streets are to be swept twice a week; let the public bear this in mind. Jvstice in New Orleans.?In November last, we had perpetrated, in one of our streets, a bloody murder, in which a man by the name of Andrew Meehan was the unfortunate sufTerer, the facts of which were published at the time. Subsequent disclosures fastened the crime on a young man by the name of William Donaldson; the consequence was, that a bill of indictment was found, charging Donaldson with the murder. The corporation offered a reward of $200 for the apprehervsion of the murderer. Donaldson fled from the city; and, in order to arrest his flight, messages were despatched to almost every city in the Union, with a request to arrest him immediately. Among other efforts made, officer A. M. C. Smith forwarded a copy of the indictment to an officer in New Orleans, where Donaldson was supposed to have tied. This proved to be correct, as Donaldson was arrested on the 11th of June, and detained in prison, on the copy of this indictment. Information of the arrest was forthwith sent to officer Smith, who, without de- i 'uy, procured a requisition from Governor Young, Cor ihe removal of the accused to this State, for trial. This document was obtained, and officer Smith left this city, on the 1st of July, in the j steamer Crescent City, with all the necessary papers for Donaldson's removal to this State. (>n the arrival ol Mr. Smith at New Orleans, on the 10th of July, he was informed by the authorities who had Donaldson in custody, that the prisoner had been discharged by Judge McHenry, one of the district judges, on the lid instant, on a writ of habeas coijms; the judge setting forth, " that as no requisition was shown, he should discharge the prisoner;" which was done accordingly, although j the copy of the indictment was proved, and information given, that a requisition was corning on as quick as possible. The conduct of this judge is beyond comment, in allowing a man charged with a capital offence, 1 to escape punishment. If judges are to take this high-handed measure in discharging criminals, the sooner our laws ure abolished the better. We , understand that a woman of ill-fame, keeper of a house of prostitution in New Orleans, paid Donald-, 1 son's counsel $70(1 to procure his release. ! Take the proceedings altogether, they were an outrage on public justice, and the sooner, we think, such judges resign, the better it will be for , the administration of criminal law, and the safe- | ' guard ot the community. ! I < Sporting; Intelligence. I Usios Cot-nsc, L. I.?The trotting and pacing con t?Bts at this course, yesterday, afforded great delight to J f ? who witnessed them. There was a good attend.

J The first engagement was a pacing contest for a , t purse, between b m. Cayuga Maid, and g. g. Moun- ' 1 taineer, mile heats, best in five, under the saddle. First Htat.?

Biiikiiv Theatre.? \ veiy lar^u audience attended at this favorite place of amusement last night. and the mauntr in which the applause waa bestowed upon the performances, gave sufficient evidence that the labors of the proprietor, In catering for the amusement of the people, are appreciated. The beautiful opera of " Cinderella. or 'J he (jueen of the Fairies," was repeated, in which Miss Mary Taylor again showed her great powers as an actress, in the character of Cinderella. W ith every repetition, it insets with renewed favor, and the approbation of the merits of those engaged in it. by the audieuue. is but the just reward of talent. Mbs Julia Turnbull then appeared, for the first time, as I.a Hour de Champ, in the beautiful bullet oj that name, and was received with the deafening cheers of the audience.most plainly indicating the great favor in which she is held. The part is a beautiful one, and was fierfermed with such grace and ease as to bring down the nvoluutary applause of the whole house during the entire p?rhumances. The *' Pas de Nayades," as executed by her, was most beautiful, aud gained a greater degree of favor than any of her former e Torts. Mr. G. Hudolph. was admirably performed, and won iir iiiiii in** iiimiu^ iavor 01 me auuience me several patses which he performed with Miss Turnbull were really graceful, and beautifully accomplished. The piece went olf with great a hit, aud deservedly too, for it is on>- of the most chaste and beautiful ballet* which has teen presented. The laughable comedy of "Crimson Crime*'' wound up the entertainment, in which Mr. Winans, a* Kutik. kept the audience convulsed with laughter. He has a atyle peculiar to himself, and his mere appearance upon the board* ill* every one present with delight, especially those who may have been suffering under melancholy feeling*. tio to night; a first rate bill is offered, and one which cannot but be received with the same spirit which pervade* the house every evening. Nimlo's.?The continued indisposition of Mr. Ham* mond prevented hi* appearance at this house, last evening, and the comedy of the "Honey Moon" was played, instead of the piece in which Mr. II. was to have taken a part. We regret that Mr. H. should be so unfortunate a* to fall *ick at this time. The few evenings on which he played, he made a very favorable impression, though even then he was far from well ; however, we trust that he will, ere long, recover entirely, and we are sure that he will be heartily received, a* becomes his merits. Mr VandenholT took the part of Duke Aranza last night. Kvery one will admit that he is a most admirable reader and elocutionist ; indeed, few actors enunciate so clearly, and u*nrimninv their words with such snnronrists notion but with all that, he might be a little more spirited and energetic. It appear* to us, that this is the only thing lacking in Mr. V'., to entitle him to the highest rank as an actor. Miss Rose Tetbln performed the part of Juliana. This charm!Jg young actress is a universal favorite, and, what is more, is an exoellent performer. There is so much grace and elegance in her mode of rendering the part* she is cast in, that she invests the most trifling scene with interest. John Sefton, Dawson, and the rest of the company, are all excellent in their various styles of acting To-night;"Mr. Hackett will appear in his favorite and original part of Nimrod Wildfire, in the " Kentuckian." This is one of the parts tbat gave Mr. Hackett so much reputation in years gone by. He still, however, is as gay and eooentric a Kentuckian as ever, and as able to do full justice to the oddities of our southwestern friends. He will likewise appear as O'Chllaghan, in the farce of

' His I,a*t Legs.'' a part in which he has gained much reputation. The farce of l,A Kiss in the Dark " will commence the entertainments. Btrton's Theatre. ? There was a crowded and fashionable audience at this theatre last night, to witness the choice and beautiful performances which are there presented. " Dombey and Son," was first played, in which Mr. Burton sustained the character of Captain Cuttle, an old mariner, and his personation of the character was in perfect keeping with his general performances. It was received throughout with thunders of applause, especially in that part where his kindly feelings are enlisted in behalf of Walter Uay, by Mrs. Uraee, in which all the true character of the honest tar is most beautifully pourtrayed Mr. Brougham performed the character of Major Joe Bagstook and Jack Bunsby, and his opinion in nautical matters, in the estimation of Captain Cuttle, was considered superior to that of any man in the world. His parts were admirably played. Mr. Nickinson, as Dombey, most faithfully portrayed the character of the aristocratic and brutal husband and father; while his graceful and talented daughter, as Florence Dombey, was excellent. Mrs Knight, as Fdith. the victimized wife of the hero, was received with delight by the audience, for the able manner in which she personated the character. Mrs. Vernon, as Mrs Skewton, a dear, good, but fashion loving mother, who is willing to destroy the happiness of her chil<| for the sake of wealth, performed the part with great effect; while Mr. Raymond, as Toots, made another most effectual hit. Mr. Fredericks and Miss Walters appeared in a beautiful " Pas de Deux." The performance ooncluded with a repetition of that popular burlesque " Luoy did Sham-Amour." which was received with redoubled applause. Mr. Burton is constantly bringing forward such popular pieces that the house is crowded every night; and with his present company it is impossible to fail, Go to see him to-night, and ycu will be satisiied that the entertainments are equal, if not superior, to any place in the city. New National The\tbk.?This beautiful place, the re-embellishment of which reflects so much credit upon Mr. Chanfrau, its able manager, was crowded last evening, in spite of the hot weather. It was the fourth night of the engagement of Mr. J. K Scott,the popular tragedian, who has so many friends in our city, that whenever he appears he is sure to draw a full house. The entertainment began with the laughable farce of the " Spectre bridegroom." which was played with a great deal of mirth and histrionic ability. Miss Carline, a very deserving little dantetise, appeared in a pat from " La Fille du Danube." which was en> oretl as usual. Then came the drama of the " Adopted Child." in which Mr. Scott personated the character of Michael, with that terrt of action and speech which is so peculiar to that talented actor. Mrs. McLean, a very splendid woman and an excellent actress, performed the part of Nell with, skill and perfect ease. This lady walks the stage and reads her part with a characteristic power, aad is, undoubtedly, one of the best artists in ner profession. The whole concluded with the farce of " Ole Bull," which elicited great applause. The bill for this evening will consist of the comedietta of "Swiss Cottage." followed by the celebrated drama of "Don Crrsur de" in which Mr. Scott will personate the hero. Miss Carline will dance two pat. and the performance will conclude witli the petite comedy of ' Nature and Philosophy " Warm or not, Mi. < hanfrau will have another full house.

Oat of the largest and moat enthuaiaatic meeting* tbat ever was held In New York, wan convened at Vauxhall Garden, laat evening It waa an adjourned meeting of the friends of Ireland; and, although there was little or no preliminary notice, thousands, and tens of thousands, of the devoted eons of Krin Assembled therefor the purpose of giving their mites, and breathing a prayer for the success of tbo struggle in whieh the people of Ireland are, perhaps, at the present time engaged?a struggle which will either rivet stronger the chains which bind her, or make that icle, domination. It was in vain that the assembled tliourauds fougLt to obtain an entrance to the ip iciom hall of Vauxkall?it whs densely tilled within tun minut. s after the meeting was called to order, aud in tire minutes more, it was so crammed, that it could not possibly hold another per.-on Such being the statu of matters, and thousands remaining outside, it was profiosed that an organization should tufce place in the rge garden attached to the establishment, which was accordingly done. The enthusiasm manifested at this meeting was beyond description. The sons of Irelaud, and others, actually climbed oyer each other s backs and shoulders, with the view of showing their enthusiasm in the cause, and their pocket-sympathy with the Iiieh in the conflict in which they are now, and will soon, be engaged. The meeting was composed principally of mechanics und laboring men. who have to earn their daily bread by the sweat ot their brow, and who, perhaps, are not worth llfty^dollars in the world; yet, so great was their enthusiasm, that five, and ten, and twenty, and a hundred dollars, which, perhaps, were the savings of weeks or months and years of hard labor, were handed in most willingly. Indeed, as regards numbers and enthusiasm, we question if the meeting last night, has ever been equalled in this city. Mr. James W. White was appointed chairman; and, on taking his seat, said that it was not necessary, nor indeed was it proper, that he should detain the meeting with any lengthy address on the subject which bad called them together. It is gratifying to witness the spirit which animates the people of New York on the subject of Ireland's circumstances, and her struggle for liberty. The large assemblage which is here this evening,proves that ,the (spirit here corresponds with the spirit that is up and doing on the other side of the water ; and shows that while the people there are, perhaps, at this moment engaged in deadly conflict for liberty with the arbitral y government that has so long oppressed them, we here, on this side, are equally anxious to aid them to the fullest extent in our power. Uentlemen, we have commenced the good work with them, and we shall persevere in it with them, until Ireland be either further enslaved, which Ood forbid, or until she be finally victorious and independent. (Applause) We hare enlisted for the war with them, and not until a glorious peace shall have been concluded, shall we cease. (Cheers ) Day and night will we struggle with them, and we shall use every means in our power towards their liberation. Gentlemen, I need hardly tell you, that we have met here for business purposes, and it would not be proper and appropriate that 1 should take up your time by speech-making. You will, no doubt, be addressed by men capable of enlisting and calling forth your sympathies in aid of the movement in which we are engaged. (Applause ) Messrs. Richard Emmett and Charles Shea,were then appointed secretaries. O'Connor, Esq., then read a sypnopsis of a report of the proceeedingB of the Irish directory since the last meeting, from whieh we gleaned that the friends of Ireland in Pottsville. Pennsylvania had contributed $000; the Repeal Confederation of Washington $600; Mr. William Fitspatrlck $20; the Thomas F. Meagher Club $260; the Mitchel Club $31 60; the friends of Ireland in Baltimore $1046 CO; the friends of Ireland in Syracuse $700; Mr John Colum, a patriot of 1792 and 1798|$100; the Emmett Club of Carbondale, Pennsylvania $100; Silas Harris $5, and the Confederation of the Friends of Ireland in Utica $560 29. Mr. O'Connor further stated that the directory had received letters from many places, stating that the friends of Ireland there were ready to act; that they were in receipt of funds, and asking what should be done with them. Of course all such replies are answered in the address to the friends of Ireland in the United States, recently issued. 'The collection of contributions being in order, sums varying from one dollar to one hundred, poured in as fast as the treasurer could receive them. While this was going on, Mr. John T. Ennis, the bearer of the subscription of six hundred dollars from the Repeal Confederation of Washington, was introdnced to the meeting, and to the tune of liberty and independence for Ireland, addressed the meeting in a short and pithy speech. Friends and fellow countrymen, said he, I can assure you that when I entered this room, I had not the slightest Idea that 1 would bare been so much honored as I hare been in being called upon to address such a meeting as this. I came here merely for the purpose of being a witness of the enthusiasm wht<;li i hare read so much of in the papers of your city, but it seems to me that cold would be the heart of any man that would not be animated by the enthusiasm and the spirit of emotion to fatherland, which is presented here to-night. (Applause) 1 hare been honored, ; sufficiently honored, as being made the agent of the friends of Ireland in Washington, to bear their con- | tributions to you, and did not contemplate in being ! further honored in being called upon to address you. j This subscription, however, is: but the first from . Washington. The Irish people there do not unfortu- j nately constitute a wealthy, portion of the|community. j The sum of six hundred dollars was, notwithstand- 1 ing. collected at one meeting, (applause,) and the as- I seuiblage by which it was contributed, was presided j over by one of the most illustrious of our j countrymen, one in whose veins flows the blood of Ueorge Washington. (Tremendous applause.) one who. for the last twenty years, has been ever ready to respond to the call of Ireland, to assist them in every way ; one who has never deserted the cause, and one who Las frequently said, that if you wish to do anything with the British lion, it is of no use to catch him by the mane and pat him, but you must hold him, and prick him with the pike. (A deafening outburst of applause lollowed this remark ) That man is Ueorge Washington P. Custis. (Tremendous applause.) But his elTorts in aid of the cause of Ireland were not confined to words ; for on the following day. without any solicitation, and although he is not possessed of much of the good things of this world, we received from him a letter, enclosing the sum of twenty dollars, (great applause.) to aid the people of Ireland in their struggle for freedom. But. gentlemen and friends, although we have given this sum of six hundred dollars, permit me to say. on behalf of the friends of Ireland in Washington. that when the Ueneral Taylor of Ireland in New York (applause) calls on us, we shall be ready to givo a little more irrum, (trum.n.lnn, ?? .11-.. tory of Ne* York, wko. I may add. bare the entire oon- 1 fidence of the people of Washington, (applause ;) uud j that we shall continue to do so. until Ireland shall be ictorloua and independent. Permit me to make another remark. There is another name in that list of contributors which must recall to Ireland some of the saddest, as well as some of the most pleasant renflniscences in the history of Ireland. There is one name there, which I am sure must stir up the hearts of freemen. We have, gentlemen, received a noble eontribu- ' tion from the widow of the lamented Wolfe Tone. (Continued applause ) Yes, we have In that list the names of the most glorious men of America and of Ireland. 1 They have both given their sanction to the cause in j which Ireland is engaged, if, indeed, any sanction 1 were necessary. I shall not detain you any longer. I 1 am proud of being in this position in the emporium of 1 the western world, and proud, as the son of an Irish- ' man. of being present at such a meeting as this. I am ' proud of being the son of a Wexford man. ( Three ' cheers fori Vinegar Hill 1" Hurrah ! Hurrah 1 Hurrah!) 1 Yes. you may well cheer for Vinegar Hill, and I hope I shall have the pleasure of soon mingling my enthusi- 1 asm with yours. All 1 can say is, persevere to the end in this cause. There is eTery reason for you to shout for ' for Vinegar Hill. We can't assist those who are about to c light the battle of Vinegar Hill over again by going over " there. A large number of us, as Hannegan says, can- * not go in companies; but we can go by twos, and ! threes, and form our companies there after our arrival. ' (Applause and three cheers for Hannegan.) (lentlemen, 1 i will only say. in conclusion, persevere in the good * cause. It is a good one. and 1 firmly believe that it lias the blessing of Providence. I firmly beliove that * the cause of Ireland is as worthy, and as noble a one. * is any ever undertaken by human means. There is, J In this country, where, happily, no such tyranny exists as does in Ireland, a strong feeling of attachment * :o that country. It is a good causa, and I believe It j! vlll prosper: and I will conclude by saying, that it Is . dv londest hope. that if ever 1 should meet you again, " I will be able to mingle my congratulations with yours )T?r the inde|iendenoe of old and suffering Ireland Mr. Knnis sat down, and was (much applauded.? * 'ontributions were handed in again in large sums.

(Laughter ) On Kriday laat Mr. Mitnhel and myself convened a meeting in the I'ark in RulTalo.

Wo understand that a largo Irish force is shortly to invade Canada; and however we. as American oltizuus. may deprecate this event, we believe that to such an extent have the plana been matured, it will be wholly impossible for our government, however amicable our relations with Ori at Britain, to prevent it.) Dr. Kris wes tbe next speaker. He did not intend to occupy tbeir time very long. It was not words which were wanted now. but deed'. (Cheers.) circumstances, therefore, he would be very brief, as their time would be much better occupied in getting money than hearing speeches They were met there for a great object?for a glorious purpose?to emancipate that glorious island, which suffered so long the despotism of Oreut Britain, and to raise her up to thw dignity of an independent nation. (Cheers.) This was a great work, and was there any one there who would refuse to contribute his aid to effect it ' (Cheers.) Was there any one In that assembly content to sew tbe lofty mountains and the fertile valleys of that beautiful country trodden any longer by slaves : (Loud cries of " No, no!") Where, he would ask, was there a place on the globe, possessed' of such a position, and such resources; and where again could be tound a spot, where the acts of man had so perverted tbe decrees of heaven? (Cheers.) He earnestly hoped that the dark days of Ireland had passed, and that a brighter horizon would shortly brighten tbe firmament ot that unhappy country. (Cheers.) But bow was that wished for day to be brought about? Was it by vacUating from their purpose, and receding from their resolves? (Cries of no, no.) No, he was Batiafied that their exertions should be untiring, and their zeal unbounded, until they could safely say that they had done their part In accomplishing this noble work of humanity. (Cheers.) no uuuwuuou uj uj?muh o nwwn^ blage to help forward the good work ; aud ho hoped that no Irishman on this side of the Atlantie, would' hesitate to render all the a^istaace In his power to aid his country in her present emergency. (Loud cheering.) The money again came in toy handfuls. amid the greatest excitement and enthusiasm. The war policy was the only thing talked of?one dollar for a pike and five for a rifle, Sic. Bayonets, and bullets, and dollars, and eagles were tripping each other in strange confusion at every successive announcement. The men employed in Sherwood and Fisher's, corner ot Broadway and Walter street, gave sixteen dollars to raise* a barricade, which was received with loud oheere. Mr. Robinson here announced that the Waterforih Barricade Club would muke their report on the next night of meeting, and he ventured to say that it would be worthy of themselves and of the cause. (Cheers.) Mr. Baker next addressed the meeting, but his introductory observations were greatly interrupted by the cheers of the immense assembly outside, whs were evincing their feelings to another orator. He called upon them to render to Ireland all the aid it was possible for them to bestow, for now was her hour of difficulty and danger. She was at present engaged in a struggle with that inhumnn beast that had so long outraged humanity by the barbarous and cruel sufferings she had inflicted upon her. Having addressed several assemblies during the week, his voice was too impaired to enable him to do justice to any observations he might feel inclined to make. He believed that the time had arrived when patience was a vice, and when vengeance, red vengeance, was a virtue. (Loud and prolonged cheers.) Some think this language intemperate ; but be believed that it was the language adapted to the occasion? This was not a meeting to investigate philosophical problems?a nice question of distinction. It was a meeting to investigate whether a large portion of God'e creatures should be abandoned to the tender mercies* of armed ruffians and a ruthless soldiery. (Cheers.) This was a war meeting, and. therefore, he would doc, apologise for the language he used; but. on the contrary, should endeavour to rouse every energy, so as to Induce them to light as if they had feasted on lions* marrow. (Cheers.) Adopting the language of Henry the 4th, he would call upon them to behave tbemxelveft humbly while at peace, but when the blast of war rang: upon their ears, to be as tigers in their fierce deportment. (Loud cheers.) This demeanor in them was what had pleased him most. (Unanimous cheers.) Subscriptions were again received, and several handed In their third subscription. Mr. Divver then addressed the audience in a strain of impassioned eloquence, and expressed a hope that half a million of skilful riflemen would shortly be in readiness to accomplish any design which the directory might lay before them.

THE SECOND MEETING. In consequence of the vast assemblage of persona who had gathered round the main stand in the hall, many found it difficult to make their way to the vicinity of the chair to hand in their subscriptions, and accordingly a large ciowd adjourned to the garden, where a platform was erected for the occasion, and a second meeting was organized. Horace Greeley, Esq., was unanimously called to the chair, and Charles M Cartby Delany and R. Kmmett Doyle, F.sqrs., were appointed to act as secretaries. The Chairman, on taking the ehair, exhorted the many Mends of Ireland who surrounded him to come forward and contribute In every possible manner to the aid of the Irish people in their present struggle. They should cut off the price of their tea and tobacco, and of everything they used as the necessaries of life, in order to enable themselves to forward, by pecuniary aid. the present struggle In which their countrymen were engaged. There were but three thousand miles between them, and the humbler classes in particular were bound to contribute, as this was a struggle carried on for the poor against the rich, not oaly in Ireland. but in Scotland. England, and everywhere.? He exhorted the poor, therefore, to make up their little clubs, and contribute, even one dollar each, as the Irish wanted powder and muskets. (Applause ) They were about to go with the pike alone against cavalvy?(cheers)?and had got to do svery thing, as far as they had gone, almost with the pike; and they now wanted money. ( ' They shall nave it.") They had nothing as yet but the pike amongst them. (Cheers.) To be sure, the pi e was a glorious instrument, when it was within rauge?(continued cheering)?hut It required to be supported by mother arm of the military ,-ervice. After briefly explaining the necessity for immediate action in the muse of Ireland, the chairman concluded, when scve ftl subscription* were handed in. through the active igency of Mr. Walsh, and other gentlemen upon the platform. Mr. Fallon next addressed the meeting, rle proceeded to show that England had tyrannized n h mnsi innuman manner over Ireland, and had vloated the so-called Act of Union. She had gained an a?endnncy by the influences of bribery and oorrnption, ind the vile Saxon got among them in this way. The Memorable year of 1846 would be ever In their recolleclon, when the scourge of famine waa felt In Ireland. I'his horrible state of things was brought about by the iritlsh government, and no less than one million of he down-trodden people were swept away (Cries of Shame.*1) They had fallen, and this wa? the extcrnlnatiug course of policy pursued hy the British.
