There was another Irish demonstration at Vau.x- I hall last evening. It was, as usual, an enthusiastic affair, and the contributions poured into the treasury. See the report in another .columnIt is to be hoped that no unfair means will be v.srd, and no incorrect reports spreadjbetore the , public, to induce the lovers of freedom to subscribe their money in aid of the cause of Ireland. There should be lair dealing in patriotism ; no deception ; no gross fabrication of news. The news from Ireland by the Cambria, did not, m our judgment, warrant the gloomy comments which several of our cotemporar es have though1 fit to indulge in. It would be strange, indeed, if the coming crisis which has been so much talked about?so long promised, and so zealously and persevering!)' labored tor?should end in a scrim, mage with some hundreds of the peasantry and forty policemen. Yet, if we are to believe some of the sagacious, " best possible instructors " of this city, who form thoir judgment of such affaire from the ! mercenary and corrupt press of Kngland, the rebel- | lion is completely suppressed, and the movement of a great people to shake off the galling oppression of centuries, resolves itself into a game of "hide and go seek " in the mountains 01 Tipperarv. Any one, however, who has carefully perused the able letters of our correspondents from Dublin, Liverpool, Southampton, and London, will not re?;uire to be informed that the chuckling of the English press on the result of the Ballingarry allair, only powerfully betrays the feelings of apprehension with which they regard the state of Ireland, and that this is in no way decisive of the grand isme. But it suits the niann uvnng of the com DiissionCrs of police in Dublin, and of the govern- J ment and press of England, to magnify this aflray into exaggerated importance, and to elevate into a - ? i ?j:?, U,,. ? JClCttl tjiiuiv wnni ?, as in icom; i/ui a |>wu<,c squabble. And if we could get at the real facts of J ihe case, it is by no means improbable but it would assume an entirely different complexion. If, how- 1 ever, the danger be all over?if thesa forty policemen have completely put down the insurrection?where is the need to inundate Jreland with the enormous military force tha' is continually being poured into that country! Where is the necessity for surrounding the coast of Ireland with the naval forces of Kngland, if Smith O'Brien, as we are told, could only rally under ilia standard a few hundred followers! If sub-in- I spector Tranr was able, with Ins band of forty po- I Jice, to put to route one thousand men, and anniln- j late the[ hopes of Ireland, why, in the nanie|of common sense, was Lord Ilardinge, one of the heroes of Waterloo, and late conqueror of the Sikhs of India, sent over to quell this abortion of a revolution T We confess we cannot reconcile the discrepancy that appears to us to exist between the statements the English press and government make with respect to the suppression of the insurrection, and the alarm and consternation, and formidable military demonstrations, that they are making in every part of Ireland. Either they must be laboring under a ridiculous misconception w ith regard to ihe 1 ?oi-piita a re in nr<irfV-?i /mi sittir ui uciauu, vi ticv v.w ... , | of developement there which will l?c as gratifying , to ihe lovera ol freedom, all over the world, as they w ill be fatal to the oppressive tyranny which has hept that beautiful country so lone enslaved We see that the " Directory lor Ireland *' have published a card, in which they caution the lriends f Ireland here not to credit the intelligence which comes through the linglish press; and the >>n- j flicting statements lately received trotn this source are cjuite sufficient to warrant a -u*picion as to their correctness, and the propriety of such a caution In the mean time, the demonstrations on behalt of Ireland are continued with increasing enthusiasm and a*,oni8hing determination?led, | no matt> r how. Th< met ting last night, in Vaux- j hall' >ardt n, was a monster one, which, in numbers, j ? xciterm nt, and intense feeling, tar e\< ceded any assemblage that has lately been ln-ld on 'las continent, Tin flamt ot sympathy bflrns with moofierceness, if possible, than vt r: and w- qu< " ion it Tara of the hills. nrMuIlaghinast, vi rwnn<... d such a denionstra'.on ol earnest, energette, and enthusiastic patriots as were encircletl la-t night j by tin walls ol Vaux hall''arden.

C'?ru?n \xt Cikoboiv?Among chelates which will br vigorously contested for the electoral *ote, are North Carolina and t.ieorgia, both ol which are confidently ela.m'dby whig* and democrat*. North Carolina, * will be remembered, gave her electoral vote to Mr. Clay in IbOl, by a mojcrity of 39-15; and in 1N0, to Gen Harrison by 12,.'>94 maKiriry. !a the State went for Van Puren by about 2COO ma. erity, a most unexpected result, as the whig candidate lor governor, I?udiey, had been elected in August of the same year by a large ina-onty, and Judge iVhite, of Tennessee, who 0_. P.?wl-n) u? n...-. .. re 11 rri j ? an I'nicn, nas a iiaiiYC of North Carolina. The result at the pres.dentiaj election of INki, w at- caused by a singular apathy on the part oi the wings, some thousandsot whom went to sleep after the August election, and on waking up, found the electoral vote had been given to Van 13uren by a diminished number of \0te9 jolled. The present year, the whigs have elected their governor by the small majority of about HOO, in a popular vote of HO.OOO in the State, and if they are caught napping m November, a similar result to I that which took place in 183bmay be expected, and ! the vote of the tState be given to Cass and Butler ; It is expected, however, that the name of Taylor ; will have a tendency to keep the wings awake, and that some democrats will be found to swell the wing voie on me i residential eiecuon. ivoiu parses laihc Mate are sanguine of success, with the chances rathe/in favor of the whigs. With regard to Georgia, the State election, last ! year, showed a democratic majority tor < Governor j of 12K?, and a whig majority of seven on joint ; ballot in the Legislature. At the last Congres| sional election, four whigs and four democrats were c hosen. In 1844, Polk's majority overClay, for President, was 2047 ; but, in 1845, the whig Governor, Crawford. was re-elected by 1751 majority. The following has been die vote of the State at difierent periods.?? President. 1840?Harrison 40.261 Van Burex 31,921 Whig majority 8.340 1844?roth 44,147 Clay 42,100 Democratic majority 2,047 Governor. 1M6?Crawford, (whig) 41.514 McAllister, (democrat) 39,763 Whig majority 1,751 1847?Towna. (democrat) 43,320 Clinch, (whig) 41,931 Democratic majority 1.289 Ii will be noticed that the democrats, in two instanqgp, namely, in 1844 and 1847, polled a larger vote in (lie State than has ever been reached by the whigs, on a general ticket ; and, judging from | this circumstance, supposing, also, that there has been no material ehange in parties in Georgia since last year, we should say that the chances are in favor of the democrats for the electoral vote. On the other hand, there are. it is believed, many Calhoun democrats who prefer Taylor to Cass ; and, considering that the power and patronage of the State is in the hands of the whigs at present, with the exception of] the Governor, who lias bui little; also, that the popularity of Taylor has not been tested in the State, we know of no electoral vote in the Cnion more doubtful than that of Georgia. Om Dark Streits?The Lami- Department.? mow inat me streets nave been let out hy contract to be cleaned, we hope that something will be done by the Committee on Lamps and Gas?we believe that is the proper title of it?towards retrenchment in the matter of lamp-lighting. The people of this city sutler more for want of system in their municipal government than probably any other people in the Union ; and it is high time that some plan were devised whereby they could j obtain a little relief from the tremendous rate of ! taxation with which they are burthened. Mem- ! bers of the Common Council, as a general thing, j fancy that they are elected merely to distribute j the spoils of office, and to set in their legislative rooms to vote invay the people's money, by making j appropriations for various objects; but as there is no general rule without some exceptions, we have better hopes of the present city fathers, be- j cause they have already shown a desire to make I themselves useful. We now return to the lamps. The expenditure during the last year, for lighting the streets and public buildings, was $1H2,81-); and the cost of 1 supplying oil and lighting was $12 1?) per lamp, , ^ exclusive of other expenses. Tor the year 18M>, it was $10 43 per lamp; and that, certainly, is enough for such light as they have given us. If our readers with to know with what kind ol light we have been furnished heretofore, let them remember how the Park looked when " lighted up with oil lamps betore gaslights were introduced there, and then they can form some idea ot the swindle which the patient, kind hearted, and benevolent people of this city have been suffering under for so many years. The cost of lighting this city is thus accounted for :?For oil, $55,170 b*: lor lighting oil latnps, $41,700 50 (') ; for supplying, lighting, and exiin- , guislnng gas Jamps, y'.i-'f,7b0 30: and for supplying markets, station houses, iVc., with gas, $12,7b2 00. The remainder of the $102,^15 was tor contingent exi?enses, salaries, ,Ve. Now, who imagines, that it an individual had tlie control of this department, it would co?t *00,000 10 purchase oil, or *12,000 to ligli the oil :amps alonel A lamplighter can do all the work in a district of lamps in about two hours, and fog j this he receives ten shillings?which is ti\ shillings an hour, or thereabouts. Who does not believe that it can be done a great deal cheni^r. and that oil can be obtained at a much lower rate than it js at present! tfive the work to individuals !>v contract, and the light department will not only cost far less than it does now. but we shall have much better light; for, as contracts can be made for a term of only one year, competitors would constantly ,-tand bv to furnish better light at a cheaper rate than the person holding the contract. I onsf'iuenily, the contractor would always endeavor to out-lnne all competition; and thus our street lamps, instead of looking like solitury lightning-butr- t roost, would blaze up like g.;s lights. W'e have before, in mentioning this matter, -Rid, that a -aving of thirty or forty thousand dollars might he annually made, by putting tins department to the tew ot the < ontract system; and , we believe now that a vast deal more than that can he saved. Tiie lathers of the city have an oppnr- ! rniiitv now <?t immortali/in? themselves, l?y adopting measures oi economy, and if tliev will go to work and devi*< mean* to lighten the burden their c < p-titnanf? now utoan under, tiicy will red tee tin rate Of taxation far below what it is at pre* | -ent, and receive the thank* and good wialie* ot j ?x i \ man, woiuan and r-lnId xx lio know* any* | thing adorn excessive taxation orthe remedy for it.

Accord, ing to .ndicatjono which hare recently come lo light, there is every prospect that m the ! accession of California, the United States have I made a very valuable acquisition. We have, en a i former occasion, dwelt upon the ccvniaerei 1 and agricultural resources of that . ountry, but, great as they are, they sink nearly into insignifkance when compared with the immense mineral wealth of that fgion. By a ccounts recently received front there, mines I ot quicksilver of extraordinary wealth b?.ve been discovered, the richness of which >s almost incredible. In one mine, owned by an Unglish house in Mexico, named Banron, Forbes A Co, a few workmen, wiih the rudest description of mining implements, and at an expense very trifling indeed, have been tor some tune past procuring quicksilver to the value of three hundred dollars i .1... ? ;?..i I ?l.l-?... I I? ? UUJ. r? u | ivj" i uiij-u ni'. iiiB onu niai.Hiii' i/. which have been contracted tor in England, shall have arrived, this company expect to produce ^iniense quantities of this valuable metal. As it is at present, they cannot work to advantage. A few pickaxes, crow bars, and a small lot of common pots, constitute all the implements at work. Vet, with these rude and imperfect means, they produce wealth to the amount of three hundred dolhus per day. Now that this valuable territory has been annexed tothe Inited States, we may look for an early development of these great mineral resources of California. American skill and ingenuity will soon manifest their presence there, and when direct" d to the^e immense mines, will, no doubt, reap th'irdue reward. As it is, the ice lias already been broken; lor we perceive that an association of enterprizing Americans, known as the .^unta Clara Mining Company, have purchased a mine of great richness, which they purpose to work as soon as they can have their machinery completed and transported thither. An accredited agent of the company is now in New York, making the necessary preparations for commencing the enter- ] prise. This mine, we understand, is extremely ' prolific, and is most admirably located. It is 1 within thirteen miles of the Buy of San Francisco, and six of the village of Puebia Jose de Oauda- , lupe, with abundance of fuel in the immediate neighborhood, nnd a straight and perfectly level , road tuns from the mine to the main avenue [that connects Monterey with San Francisco. The ore has been tested on the spot, in an exceedingly primitive manner, viz : by placing it in a musket bar- ] rel, and applying fire to it; but even with this im- , perfect test, it yields thirty per cent of its weight ] in pure met.:l. This is the first blow that American enterprise i has made ai the mineral wealth of California; but | it, no doubt, will be followed up, until the re- ( sources of that part of our territory shall have lieen tally developed, and quicksilver as regularly exported front there, as breadstulis and cotton are sent front the Atlantic cities. Indeed, judging front the accounts that we have received of the mineral wealth of California, quicksilver is as easily mined there, and is as abundant in the mine of this Antejican company, and in that of the English company, as coal is in Pennsylvania. Mexico, we suppose, will be the best market for the products. The gold and silver mines of that country will herealter, no doubt, be more extensively worked than ever; and as quicksilver is an indispensable agent in the businesss, there will he a constant and steady demand for it. This American mine is so rich, we are informed, that the gentlemen who surveyed it, under the directions ol the'govemment, was so much afiected by salivation, that his mouth was sore for a period often days alter he had concluded the survey. We believe that Thomas <>. I.arkin, Esq., the United States Consul at San Francisco, was the first American who appreciated the value of the mineral resources of California, and he is the secretary ot this new Santa Clara Mining Company. We further learn, that specimens of the ore from this -mine are in the hands of a scientific chemist of this city for analyzation. 1 1 It therefore appears that, in acquiring California, , 1 .1. _ o.-. l - i 1 -r __ I I me i unru omics uu^c utiujutr j?ussrM5tru ui an ; extremely valuable acquisition. What with the I splendid harbor ol San Francisco, and the agri- f cultural and mineral resources of that country, ( aliforma promises to be the most valuable portion of our territory. 'ii \ew < Aitaiks.?We annex a con. 1 " Jensed account of an itneule which occurred in 1 # Bogota, tin-capital ol New (iranada, on the Ittili j lune last, which, it wjll be seen, was quickly pul J down. The Presidential election, however, is c such an exciting topic there at present, that we 1 presume this disturbance merely amounts to some ] electioneering intrigues, and the probability is c that when the election is over, the country will { again resume that ]>eaceful and orderly condition s for which it has now for several years been pre- j eminent among the Colombian republics. ' c c For some time pa-t. the attention of the government. g re.-ponsible hp it is tor the peace anil well-being ot so- s ciety at large, has Ueen attracted towards the produc- | tions of the press, marked us they have been by dema- j gogical license and a spirit of anarchy wlich threatened i to lend to a dangerons state of things, from the disor- y ganining doctrines inculcated. Neither the .justice of j. the acts of government, its strict subjection to the laws. r or the spirit of tolerance which has marked its conduct. have been sufficient to contain the ,. excesses. ^ <>n the contrary, the insolence of the writers have in- 0 creased, progressively, with that of the moderation of p, the enTernmetit : and. when the Executive tc'lioverl it > necessary to have recourse to legal measure* to fulfil the sacred mission which has been entrusted to Ulm. ? the most grogs insults, the most shameless calumnies, were launched against the K.xecuthe, and the trial of ? tile offenders against the law. The writer then goes on , to state that certain demagogues raided a great hue ami j( <-ry against the passage of such law-, and finally a-sem- . bled in some fo:> e. and so intimidated. by threats of ' j death and violence, ihe court and,iury that were try- ' r, ing them, a- to force litem to give a verdi -t of acquit- ? tai.

Although it considers this party a.-tually a proslavery party, Uiause it wi.l not attac* the institution ot slavery in the old ^tttec, the existence of whi? h is guaranteed by the ot the tonst-tntion, yet it will support it, because it :s the precursor of a new party?a great Northern p..rtv? that will, at some future time, carry the war into alrufl sn/1 trv il o UMP/IO , niMornmter.a anA everything cUe that stands in the way of the abolition of Slavery. We give the reason? that have induced the red abolitionists to .cm this free soil party :? The new party is net the r*rty that is to abolish slavery by, withdrawing from it the support of Northern bayonets and pulpits, ef the physical force and the I ubli*'sentiment ofth? free State- ; hut it will pre?>are the way for its advent. It is not the deliverer, but Us the messenger that goeth before his face. It is shorn of half its strength by its attempt to be a national, instead of a sectional, party. To be effective, it must be distinctively a sectional party. It must renounce forever the allurements of the Palilah of Union which has so often cheated the strong man of the North of his strength, and delivered him, bonnd. to the Philistines. The party, yet to he, which is to do this work, will be technically a Northern, or free State party. Its object will be, by the action of the free States alone, outside of the constitution, to free themselves, and the slaves from their guilty support of the system of slavery, while aeting under the constitution. This party will agitate within the free States for the formation of a new confederation of States, that shall have no part nyw 1 I? , 1.. . or.l .li.ll 1... e??m its despctir sway. It will go for a new constitution, for a union of freemen, free from the insidious element of tyranny, disguised in compromise. Its object will be the foundation and edifying of a true republic, where the people will choose their own magistrates, and make their own laws, and not merely register the edicts of a ruthless aristocracy, deriving its hereditary and prescriptive privileges from ownership in human beings The abolitionists, therefore.have joined Mr. Van Buren for the purpose of using him as an entering wedge for the splitting ot the constitution, and the ultimate abolition of the institution of alaveryin the Southern States. This state of things confirms the probable result ot the Presidential election, which we deduced, a few days since, from estimates and figures. _ Otr Kei-ations with Canaba.?Our readers

will recollect an article from the Quebec Mercury, which we published in the Herald last week. It related to the interference of the American people in the affdiis of Ireland. According to this, and other articles, a portion of the Canada press are highly incensed at the movements that have been making in the United States, for some time past, towards relief for Ire* land, in case she should come to blows with the government of Kngland. They object very much to he mayors of our cities presiding at the Irish sympathy meetings, in New York and elsewhere, and jfter reading us a homily on the moral duties of nations, threaten to demolish each and every individual who may attempt 10 invade her .Majesty's provinces of Canada. We have a few words of advice to give our coleniporanes in Canada. We have no idea of invading Canada, for the very best of reasons, that it s not worth the powder. When we want more erritory, we shall make another draft on the South, and leave the aiiows and ices of Canada to melt and run into this Union without our aid and issistance. As to the conspiracy against < 'anada, pou need not let it trouble you. We know wha1 ve are about. In regard to the collections of money lor the aid >f the people of Ireland, the citizens of the United States will contribute as much a? they please, and jur mayors will preside at those meetings as often is they have a mind to do it, regardless entirely of whether it is pleasing or not to her Majesty's loyal subjects in Canada. We find that Canada cannot let us alone. We make some further extracts from the press of that province, which will be found in another column L?f this day's paper. The Albany Fire.

The quarrel, at first, was eonfined to one or two, but as both sides were joined by their respective friends, the fighting became more general, and finally ended in a most serious riot. Three or four ol the Portuguese were killed, and several wounded. The riot was finally cue lied by the police and military. Thia tnttiUt j haa, however, aroused a feeling between the ( Creoles ?i Pernambuco and the Portuguese real- j dents there, and petitions had been got up and . signed by all the leading Creoles, begging for a 1 change in the existing laws regulating the admis- j si on of emigrants Irom Portugal, and which give them various immunities and advantages over j .he Creoles or natives ol Brazil. 1 * r From Paraguay, accounts had been received to * the fith April.

A Putting Glance at the Long Session of the Thir- <1 tieth Congress. p The long session of the thirtieth Congress, be- v ginning on the first Monday in December, 1847. J and ending on Monday the 14th day of August, i 1848, has been especially distinguished for its e.\ c traordinary expenditure of gas, and speeches for 1 Buncombe. r The House commenced operations on the war ' with Mexico, with the reception of the Presi- t dent's message; and, as the speeches were intend- z ed for home consumption, the debate was pro- u longed for weeks and weeks. Indeed, from first * to last, from the alpha to the omega ot the alpha- * bet of this long and gassv session, the Mexican * war has been the inexhaustible theme for Bun- J* combe, and for specious arguments adapted to the ? great object of humbugging my constituents into j, the belief that I, the particular representative of a t< particular district, or the Senator of a partichlar party in the most patriotic State of the Union, sj know all about the subject, and have duly held h up in Congress the reputation of the people of my *) section of the country, as the most intelligent. c and, by all odds, the most pairiotic and most ge- 111 nerous people on the face of the globe. But your speech-makers are not the only men in Congress. There is another class * the workers in the committee rooms, those 5" ouvritrs who examine papers, evidence, and ci ^ucliers. and make un the bills ami r*nnrta e. upon them, and upon rejected cases. These men, generally have no more to say than is ne- P? cessary to the explanation and vindication of their reports. There is yet another class, those pract 1 tfcal fellows, who are always on hand to direc- oi the current of ihe proceedings to the business that tt is to be done; Colonel Benton belongs to this di class in the .Senate, and General McKay in the in House. And there is yet another tribe of M. C's, th that class of quiet and easy customers who are a!- * ways in their seats, but never have any thing to say. except the fflmula required in submitting a petition or the aye or no upon a vote: Mr. Stur- bt eon is at the head of this class in the Senate. je. He makes no speeches, he presents no reports, he puts in no directing voice in controlling the business of the day; but his vote always count-! one, and he always votes.
