Foreign News. The public aie on the qui vivc for the arrival of the steamship Cambria, which left Liverpool on the fifth instant, and is, therefore, in her four- ! teenth day. There is intense anxiety to receive further intelligence from Ireland, as there can be 1 no doubt that either the anticipated revolution has broken out there, or will break out in a very short 1 lime J There were two or three contingencies at the last accounts, the occurrence of any of wliich| { would set the whole island in a flame. When i last we heard from there, we learned that the government contemplated sending an armed force ! < into the mountains of Tipperary, to arrest Smith 1 O'Brien, he having tied there for the purpose of i avoiding arrest. Any attempt to arrest him, situated as he was reported to be, with tifty thou- 1 sandmen at his back, would certainly lead ton i collision, and the cominencerfientofthe revolution, i If, again, the government persisted in disarming t the people ami suppressing the clubs, war may nave been declared, ine next 6teamer win uecide the matter. If, on the other hand, neither of these eontin- j gencies have oceurred, the next steamer after the one now due, will bring us intelligence of the re- j salt of the State trials. If the accused patriots are convicted, the people of Ireland are pledged not to permit the .government to treat them as it Hid , Mitchel. Any attempt at rescue, therefore, J would be the signal for the work of blood to begin. In whatever way w e view- the condition of Ire- p tand, it will be seen that she presents an interest- u nag aspect. < ?n this side of the water, much interest is entertained for her fate, and strong hopes are felt that she will achieve her independence. Ot h Dipi.omatic Intercotrse with France? The New Freak it Minister.?We learn that Ma jor I'oussin, the Minister Plenipotentiary of the I Fj Republic of France, is in town, and line taken rooms at No. 2 Pond street. In the intercourse of nations, it is universally admitted that nothing contributes more to the main- fe tenance of the entente enrdiale, than the api>oint- ' ' ment of men of worth, integrity and honor. If the ^ the great powers ot the world, and which have Ire- a <juently led to the most sanguinary and protracted P ware, and the most calamitous results to the nio- < ral, social, and intellectual progress of the con- H tending powers, as well us to the best interests of t! humanity, be carefully scrutinized, it will he found j* that, in nine cases out ot ten, the casus belli should ?] he set down to the account of the pragmatical and iacorr potent diplomatic ollicials of the respective countries. It is of the <rreatesl importance, there- ui lore, to the maintenance of amicable relations be- ^ tween the two countries, that their representatives should he men of high standing and approved character, and selected in consequence of the merit of ^ the individual, rather than the wayward favoritism of the party who may, from time to time, obtain political ascendancy. ^ It gives us much pleasure to see that tlio French government have adopted this enlightened policy, and that they have sent among us, as the accre- gt dited agent of their government, a gentleman who ., fully comes up to the diplomatic standard we have j0 been describing?Mons. l'oussin?who lately ar- j( lived from la grande nation, and is to represent ihe cabinet of the new republic in this country. flI This gentleman is no stranger to us?he was j0 attached to the stall' of General Bertrand, with a whose name and services in this country every American is perfectly acquainted; and from the j splendid character he gained for himself while re- ()l ? oirtAnnr nc in tliie fiiiflr-itu U'P ftlicnir thn rJU' lK uo Ml ? ? v..r?v.v , -?o?

M , for Southampton and Uremen. She leaves port with flying colors, a fair cargo, a good het of passengers, and in splendid sailing order. llt The elegant accommodations of her saloons and cabins, the acknowledged sjieed and well tried y,. abilities of the noble vessel, have gained for her many ardent friends, all of whom no doubt wish |,j her another s|>cedy and prosperous voyage. a( Tnr. SorrBKKSF.R ?The 1'nited Ftates mail * lag will be run up to the mast head of the Southerner this morning. A letter box, or a sub-post Jn office, has been provided on board, for the recep- f'? lion of letters up to the moment of sailing. b< Thf. Gkeat Finn m Amahv?Wc give in tri another part of to-day's paper, a full aecount ol the 0f dreadful conflagration in Albany, by which one- ju eighth part of the city, and an immense amount of property, was destroyed. The estimated loss va- |>f ries from two to five millions of dollars, only a w small i<ortion of which, comparatively, was covered by insurance. The loss of lite was dreadful, aevera) persons having been killed, and a large umber besides being missing. It is a severe blow rt' lo Albary; but wc hn^c j^e WJ? ;ccovc? it ere ^ kpg ? Tick Stvanshif Acama.?It appears that injus* ce has been done toCcptain Stone^of the steamtiip Acadia, in relation to the language which he iras reported to have u-ed to h.s passengers when | ( ie refu-ed to allow them to proceed to Boston in n he steamboat Naliant, which hailed the Acadia vhen she was befogged outside ot' Boston. A typographical error?made us say that he ? hreatened to kick the passenger , in case they i ier?evered in attempting to leave the --hip anil ;o to Boston. We intended to say, and did ;ay, that he threatened to sink the boats ; but the ypes, to our surprise, put another phase on the natter, and made us say that he threatened to tick the passengers which was not the case. Captain t?tone, of the Acadia, has written the following letter to us on the subject, which we publish as an act ot' justice to him, and for the purpose of showing that wc would not intention ally do him injustice:? To the Kpitok or the New York Heram>.

' < aptuin Stone went no far a* to threaten to kick the ilTst who disobeyed hie orders, which caused one of the passenger* to advise the Captain. Tory decidedly. not carry out his throat; and lie did not." The circumstance of the detention, and my duty in connection therewith, were sufficiently unpleasant, without the addition of false reports, in exaggeration of the one or disparagement of the other ; and I deem it only necessary now to deny tho statement made t by you above, and more particularly to deny the nppli- c cation of any improper or disrespectful language what- ( ever to my passengers. ((espectlully. your obedient serran t. < J AMI S ST ONI*.. i boston, Aug. 17,1848 Com. S. S. Acadia. ( aptuin Stone considered himself justified in pursuing the course he did, and we believe, that as far as the landing of passengers is concerned, the captains of the steamships arriving at this port, are compelled by law to act in precisely the same way. The following is a copy of the law oa the subject. The twentieth section of the laws relating to public health, says that:? Every master of a vessel subject to quarantine or risitation, arriving in the port of New York, who shall refuse or neglect either, ^ 1. To proceed with and anchor his vessel sPthe place assigned for quarantine, at the time of his arrival : 2. To submit his vessel, cargo, and passengers, to Lbe examination of the health officer, and to furnish all necessary information to enable that officer to determine to what length of quarantine and other regulations. they ought respectively to be subject : or 3. To remain with his vessel at quarantine during the period assigned for her quarantine ; and, while at t quarantine, to comply with the directions and regulations prescribed by law, and with such as any of the ' officers of health, by virtue of the authority given them 1 bylaw, shall piescribc in relation to his vessel, his j cargo, himself, or his crew, shall be guilty of a tnisde- j meanor. and he punished by a tine not exceeding two thousand dollars, or by imprisonment not exceeding 1 twelve months, or by both such fine and imprison- 1 Kent. , 21. Every master of a vessel hailed by a pilot, who 1 shal, either: 1. Give false information tosuch pilot relative to the t condition of liis vessel, crew, passengers, or cargo, or i the health of the place or places whence he came, or i refuse to give such information as shall be lawfully reluiresl* , 2. Or land any person from his vessel, or permit any ] >erson. except a pilot, to come on board his vessel or I . mlade or tranship any portion of his cargo, before his refuel shall have been visited and examined by the lealth officer : 3. Or shall apprachwith his vessel nearer the city if New York than the place of quarantine, ta which the ahall be directed : Shall be guilty of the like offence, and be subject to Lhc like punishment. Such, then, being the facts of the case, and the aw on the subject, we must acquit Captain Stone tnd the agent, of all intention to do otherwise than heir duty, and respect to the laws, obliged tlinm odo in the matter. Sword Presentations.?A magnificent sword tnd sash, complete, were presented, on the 14th nst., at Fort Hamilton, to Mr. John S. Heed, by lis fellow-soldiers of Co. B, 10th U. S.

Niri.o's, Astob Plac e.?The entertainment of lost vening bo can with the vaudeville, called a " Kiss in he Dark, which was played with great entrain, and iicitcd much laughter. But the capital feature of he evening's performances was the Americau comedy if ' The Kcntuckian; or, a trip to New York in 1*15,'' n which Mr Hackett. the popular comedian, appeared :o great advantage. We4 need not eulogise this ac:or whose talent is so well known to our readers; so may only fay that, last night he displayed in those three acts, as much tire, ability and expression, as necessary to make effect in a comedy of Shakspeare nr Sheridan KdowIcs. The character of Col. Nimrod Wildfire seems to be incorporated with its delineation; and Mr. Hackett, for whom the play was originally written, has, indeed, no rival in tne style in which lie acts his part. Mrs. Maeder. and the" ever-smiling Miss Roberts, des?r*ed also much credit. The whole oncluded with the laughable farce of - His l.a?t Legs, or Experiments in Mesmerism," which was revived amidst bursts of laughter. Mr Yundenbotr aplears this evening in SbaksDoxr.'s cumcdy of Kath irlne and Petruchio," which will ho preceded by the somedy of ' Faint Heart Never Won Fair Lady,'' and rollowed by the farce of " Confounded Foreigners." IVe (may bespeak an excellent house at tho tine resort Of John Niblo, for he deserves to be encourged, is being one of the most enterprising managers of Mew York. Ciiavfrau's National Tiikatre.?This beautiful Jieatre was again crowded last evening, attracted, no loubt, by the sterling talent which toe proprietor has ngaged, in order that his patrons should have no 'easou to say that he was behind the age in suiting the iaste and refinement of the people. The first piece ivas the farce of " Swiss Swains," in which the inimitable comedian. Mr. C. Durke, kept the house in roars af laughter. This gentleman is a great acquisition to the National, and will be sure to draw large houses.? Tho part of Hosette, by Miss Mestayer, was ably sustained, and the ballads she introduced were rendered with great sweetness and taste. This piece was sue- j seeded by the musical drama of " Don Cesar de liaian;" and it is needless to say DonCu sar.inthe hands 3f J. R. Scott, was an exquisite personation. AVith Burke and Scott alone, to say nothing of the strong itock company engaged there, we should not be surprised to see "the house crowded every night Miss farllno danced " La Smolenska" with great grace ind elegance of style. Tho performances concluded vitb the con;edyot " Nature and Philosophy," whioh vns sustained throughout wiih great eclat ; and the ludience separa'ed. highly pleased with their visit to his neat, comfortable theatre. P. dtav's Tur iTtir iiTAnmlinv nn.l O/vtt 99 ..J i;i*. entine And Orson," was the bill last evening at this loose, and a largo audience was assembled. This veriion of Dombey and Son is, we think, one of the best nlaptations which has been produced in New York, it follows the novel as closely as stago effect will allow, ind the various prominent scenes are brought forward vitbout endeavoring to crowd too much on. The cha acters, too, are excellently sustained; burton's Capt. buttle is one of the most natural pieces of acting we lave over seen The famous scene where he *euderg he "valuables" to the stiff .Mr. Dombey. as security or the money lent to Walter, shows the Captain in ail lis glory: the musing gossiping style in which he soli oguiseson Jack Bunsby's excellences, is really admirable. Raymond's Mr. Toots is a perfect representa.ion of Dickens's Toots; Mr.Uaymoml is a young acto-, tint the very admirable manner in which he has perormed this part has g.ven him a great reputation already. Nickinson's Dombey. Brougham's Joey B. and Junsby. Mrs. Vernon, Miss Nickinson, and the other icrforiners, all act admirably; and we recommend all rho wish to see "Dombey and Son" admirably acted, o go to Barton's Theatre the first evening that it is lerformed. The amusing burlesque of "Valentine and I )rson" concluded the tvenintr's entertainments 'o. night a fine bill will be played, as will be -een by iferring to our list of amusements. Castle Gardf.!?.?The concerts a la Muvard given very evening, at this favorite and health-giving locaon. are attracting large audiences. We are not surrised at this, for when it is considered how low the rice of admission?only twenty-five cents?to hear >me of the sweetest, and most soul-stirring, favorite ts. played with tho utmost musical science, and also enjoy a view of sea and mountain scenery, tho most ttUWfH and beautiful in the world, surely it ought be crowded every evening.

The heat was intense, the mercury ranging at 91 in the shade the city dry as tinder, in consequence of the drought, and a gate of wind blowing from the south. F.rery thing conspired against us ; aud the destroying element immediately getting the upper hand, raged awfully and unchecked for hours, sweeping away full six hundred buildings, many of them new, and of great value, dertroying about two millions of dollars worth of property, and rendering hundreds of families houseless and homeless Truly, this calamity is an awful one?but God be praised that it is no worse ! At ono time it seemed as If the destruction ot' our fair city was inevitable. The wind blew fiercely, the flames spread on all sides, the devouring element advanced from block to block and from street to street, buildings were taking fire in several parts of the city?all was terror, confusion, aud dismay, and the elTorts of man seemed utterly powerless. At this fearful moment the wind lulled, heavy clouds rose in the north-west, and a deluge of rain?grateful, needed, God sent rain?poured from the surcharged clouds, and checked the progress of the conflagration. Amid the roar, darkness, lightning and thunder of the storm, glared the red flames snd rolled the vast columns of smoke ; while occassionally the shock of a building blown up with gunpowder, added to the terror and sublimity of the indescribable scene. The tury and sprvud of the flames exceeded anything ever seen. The fire ran, leaped, flew, from building to building, with the speed of the hurricane that bore it on in its course of destruction. And as it advanced,and grew more and more threatening, the bells re-sounded the alarm, and the people looked on with terror aud almost with dtspair. There were many narrow escapes from death, and some serious personal injuries sustained ; among the latter, Win Johnson, his wife and daughter, were badly burnt while escaping from their dwelling, 53 Liberty street. Albany has never before, in her 200 year's history, suffered so dreadful a local calimity as this. The first block burnt was bounded by Herkimer st., Broadway. B'eecker st. and the dock. The tire then w?nt up the Dock and the en-1 side of Broadway neary to Hudson St., and up the wost side of Broadway quite to Hudson st.' it passed up Hudson st. to the Fork, burnt both sides of Liberty and UhuTeh sts. down to Lydius St., went up Lydius to Union st.. and up the east side of U nion back to Hudson st. Tark. Over this large district every building is consumed, except Haganian & Howell's four story brick, corner of Broadway and the new steamboat landinir : Bortle's new three story brink grocery store, west side of Broadway, and adjoining the district burnt in June; J. K. Wing's four story brick store, corner of Dock and new steamboat landing; Cogger's new three story brick buildings.running from the Dock to Broadway, and occupied in part by Twcddle & Darlington. All the rest are down, including the Kort Orange Hotel, Cowell's eating house. Huinn'stavern and boarding-house, the UnDtd States House, tho Kagle tavern, a German boarding house, the Townsend House, the Odeon, many small boarding houses, he., and an immense number of stores. Tho fire crossed and burnt the Hamilton street bridge, [and set on fire Dow's Western Motel?the first building on the Pier. From this point, every building on the Pier, up to and across Slate St., and thence to the cut at the foot of Maiden lune, was destroyed, including emigrant hotels, torwarding bouses, groceries, steamboat, canal boat, and freighting line offices, and ail the floating craft in the Basin, including 30 to 00 canal and lake boats, la to i!0 large tow boats, some sail vessels, and the steamboat William Seymour. Burning vessels floated against the Columbia street bridge and set it on tire. Thence the fire was communicated to the Columbia street Market, which was burned, together with a number of dwellings in the vicinity. The exact bounds of the district burnt in this quarter we have not been able to obtain. Vessels of all kinds on tbe outside of the pier floated out of barm's way. The loss of household goods of ail kinds is immense. Great quantities that were strewed in the streets were mined by the rain. Carts, wagons, drays?everything on wheels?were inconstant requisition, but could not accomplish a tenth part of the work required. Five, ten and twenty dollars were ottered for carrying a single load. 1 here was m thing like organization of effort. The authorities, the Are department, and tho citizens were scattered, isolated, and acted too much without concert. Still, much was done. Almost superhuman personal efforts wero put forth, and thousands of citizens worked with ail their might. Our firemen, under the circumstances, did all they could. We received timely and invaluable aid from F.ast and West Troy. Greeubush, and Schenectady. Numbers of perrons were rendered powerless l?y heat, fatigue and cold water. Buildings, sheds, kc , took tire repeatedly, as far north as Wilson and I.uuber streets. The whole city was in danger. M.J. Smith's Frrr. Soil Jiannrr cilice, and James Duffy's job printing cilice, were burnt. Atone time the offices of the Jlllat, Knickerbocker, and Kipress. as well as Van Benthuysen's and Munrell's extensive printing establishments, were threatened with destruction. Thcusandsof citizens packed up their goods, fyrniture, kc., and the stores were everywhere closed. A number ot buildings were blown up, under tho direction of the authorities, in the vicinity of Hudson street. It is impossible, at the time we write, to get at any correct estimate of the loss sustained, or the condition of the insurance companies. Our Albany companies have suffered terribly. Individual losses must bo very great, and there will be much distress and suffering. It will bo a long time before Albany will recover from this awful calamity. Seventeen whole blocks, tbe-pier, tho Columbia street market, two bridges, and near one hundred boats, a e destroyed. Mcst of the boats were heavily laden. Wo regret to learn that several iivas have been lost. Two men were drowned in the Basin, near tho foot of Maiden lane. Thev were floating on a raft, and in the midst of conflagration, fell off and Bunk. The owner of the steamboat William Seymour, llenjamin Wakeman. it missing A man named Kardcly, an Irishman. died from over exertion. A man named Johnson. and several others, are missing. Some 8000 or 10,000 barrels of flour, were burnt on the pier. The loss of property In the Basin was Immense. The loss is roughly estimated at two millions of dollars. We fvar our local insurance companies are overwhelmed. The property on the pier was insured abroad. The Swiftnuro and F.ckford Towboat lines Iofo tremendously. Hundreds of our business men are utterly ruined. Kour buildings were blown up with powder. At midnight the Are wns burning in forty places, but It is completely under control.

The area of the fire embraces many acres, perhaps/ fifty or sixty, of the most compact and valuable part of the city. It includes at least tweuty squares. Amidst the ruins which every where meet the eye, It is difficult to trace the outlines of the former state of things; but those familiar with the city will perceive the extent of this most calamitous visitation, by a few generalities, Broadway, from the Intersection of Ilerklmer, to the south corner of Hudson street, on the west side and to Van Schaack's variety store, on tile east side, nearly half a mite. is. with all its structures and stores, including tlie K'igle Tavern, the Townsend House, and the t nlted States Hotel, level with the earth.

Amazing ellnrt pre<erved (ioold's great orringe and coach establishment; every thing on the surrounding streets being demolished. North, the flying cinders, with which the air was filled, caught the Columbia atreat market, and of that large structure nothing remains. The adjacent buildings were saved by the prompt etrorts of the two Scfconectady fire companies. But the scene of the most striking and absolute desolation is the pier. Scarcely a vestige of It remains. Throughout Its entire length, from Hamilton street to the cut opposlto the Boston depot, it is utterly consumed.
