Wc give on the fourth page of to-day's llrahl, ex-President Van Buren'a letter to the committee of the Buffalo Convention, who were deputed to conmiunicnte to him Ins nomination by titat body as a candidate for the Presidency. It is an interesting document, at the present time, and, as a matter of curiosity, is probably worth perusal. The sentiments therein contained may be taken as part of the creed of the new free soil party. The Steamers. The Sarah Sands is in her eighteenth, and the Britannia in her thirteentlt diy. We may expect 10 receive news by one, or both, at any moment. Sympathy for Ireland. The strong excitement which the late news from Ireland created in this city, continues with undi. minished intensity among the Irish population. Another great demonstration of popular sympathy, as will be seen by our report, took place last night .in Vauxhall Gardens, and although there were 110 additional " last words'" from the scene of action the enthusiasm was not inferior to that which was manifested on Monday night. Attempts were made to confirm the astounding intelligence which appeared in one of our contein poraries: but to any man ot dispassionate judgment and calm reflective faculties, the corroborative evidence was of very little weight. Betas nothing is more disagreeable in any question which rouses the passion of mankind, than to take up a position which does not directly tally with the vehement feelings of the people, we have purposely refrained from checking the unbounded excitement, as in all probability, another day, or perhaps a shorter period, will enable us to pronounce with certainty cn the truth or falsity of the rumor. It wilj be seen by tue communications of the correspondents during the la~t few days, in Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and other parts of the f rnion, that in those places the news was entirely disbelieved. Joining, then, as we do the cool and refecting portion of such of the Irish residents her? a? we have spoken to on the subject, in thinking this letter to have no other foundation than the floated imagination of the writer, it does appear to us that the sneers of several of our cotcrnporaries are prompted more by anti-Irish feehnua than a laudable desire to ridicule imposition. A/Ion,, .if In... nii.t lalinivrl .ll. uisitions, to prove that it is utterly impossible for the Irish people to escape from the Lrrasp of Ihitish j?ower; but from the relish and ill-concealed delight that run through their articles, we very much fear that the wish is father to the thought. We have no hesitation in pronouncing this letter?and. tor the sake of the Irish people, we wish we could think differently?to be of a similar chu- ' racterto that which threw Liverpool and London in a panic a few days before the departure of the steamer. 15ut should it be contrary to our carefully formed opinion and wishes?contrary to the cool, deliberate judgment of those who know Ireland well, and who are intimately acquainted with the leader- of the Irish people?turn out to be no fabrication, what cause is there for astonishment? llo. o .1 .. ).? l??. r ... no instances of terribh- slaughter! lias Paris, Jlerlin, Vienna, and Milan, escaped from our memory? Have the well-trained, \vell-equ:p|>ed Etanding armies of llurope, prcaei-ted such an invincible front to tin uj>-roiiscd energies of the undisciplined millions, that resistance to soldiery is in future to hs adduced u- evidence ot folly ! Or is Ir'-land alone, of all the nations of Kurope?Ireland, whose son9 have reaped laurels in every zone, from the equator to the poles, and on every battle field in the old and new world?are they alone to be considered incapable ol driving ou" the tyrant that has so long oppressed them in their beautiful island! Ireland is tn a very different jarsition now from what she was in 17!**, when she made the las struggle to gain her inde|>endcnce. There is not or rather there was not lately, we admit, that cordial union among the (Mipular forces which we should like to see among a people struggling for their nationality. The cl< r jy ol the people, true o their calling, have been backward in countenancing any movement of a physical tendency; and the ' rangemen of the north have given but a very partial adhesion to the jiopular cause. 1 Jut care- 1 fully examining every circumstance o* an untavo- , rable character, we see no real cause why success i -hould he doubted. In 17!**, Ireland had not a | population of three million*?she has now eightTb> pie of that period had gone through several courses of coercion acts, insurrection and arms bills?like the present generation?while they were neither so well organized nor so well educated. And what wh- the result! Why it took 175,H0<J of the llriti h forces to keep down two t ouDties; und so irresistible is liberty against slavery, however backed by numbers, hud the insurgents been temperate, und followed up the advantages which they gained Jin -veral engage mente, it is the opinion of numy that the work would not hate to be done over ugnin now If the Ti ic>h he only true to themselves, and pull together with nuttonHl unanimity, there nppejr t > be the strongest grounds to expect that they will be tucce awful.

' a. > ^ Thr PoUUuii and of " Mm*. We have, from day to day, since the arrival of the lust steamship, published our voluminous European correspondence, to which we commended ! an attentive perusal, and which is very interesting, especially that portion relating to France The republic of France may, we think, be considered safe. The reaction in the public mind, lit favor of monarchy at no distant day, which was so confidenily predicted by the English press, with hardly one eaceptton, has not occurred ; and although Paris is yet in a state of siege, according to proclamation, internal peace prevails. The Founentes are subdued, and resolved into almost nothing; trade and commerce are reviving from the shock which they sustained by the revolution, uuu uy nw lurm id nvii vfi . uitc , uiC gU\ THIIlCm ! is strong, having a large majority in the National | Assembly; and the national credit stands high, I and is daily becoming better. Indeed, although it | is but a lew months sini e the old and rotten fabric I of monarchical government in that country was i repudiated and overthrown, and although the new i government have had to cope with un insurrection, i the magnitude of which is almost without a parallel, ! that country presents 11 spectacle of order, quiet j peace, strength, and probable durability, which is i wonderful to behold. There cannot be any doubt that Gen. Cavaignac, ! who is the head ol the present government, has I eontnbuted mainly to bring about this state o^. 1 things, lie was aided and assisted, to be sure ; but it was his firmness, promptitude, and sagacity which produced order out of chaos, and government out of anarchy. The executive government i which nrcccrh'H his nKQumnfmn nf the roin?~?f* nr^? 1 vemment.were not e<jual to the emergencyin which ( they were placed. They were unsuited for the 1 occasion, having shown weakness indecision, limidity, and temerity, iroin almost the moment | when they were installed into office. Had they shown the firmness which has characterized Gen. Cavaignac, the revolution of June never would have occurred, and would have been nipped in the | bud, alter its first symptoms were develojted.? j When it did break out, General Cavaignac, in ! whose elevation at that time we think the hand of l'rovidence is visible, was the soirit to suppress it ! and to restore order. The putting of Paris in a ' state of siege was a master stroke of good policy. ! Its good fruits are already apparent. It was, we j think, the very salvation of the republic. There t 's no time fixed for its termination, and it is pro' biddy just as well that there is not. If General j Cavaignac and the government members of the I National Assembly are pure and honest, of which i we think there can be no doubt, that measure can with propriety and good results, be continued in force lor an indefinite period of fine. While it is in operation, the resources of the country will be gradually developed ; she angry passions which so recently instigateJ the masses in the capital will I Buosiae, renecuon win ioiiow, tlie people and the masses will see the lolly ol seeking, at the bidding ot a few designing leaders, to achieve by ulood what it is no: in the nature ol things they can never attain. The result will be, that when the proper time for the rescinding it the proclamation of siege shall have arrived, perfec' order and <pnet j will prevail, and the people can be safely entrusted j with the exercise ol their rights as republicans j and freemen. When that time shall have come, the last knell ofjnonarchy in Europe will be rung, i The English press, while ailecting to admire and I praise General Cavaignac, by whose happy intervention the insurrection ol the communists was crushed, are at the same time using every means in their power to undermine him, and shake the confidence of the French people in him. They wish to pave the way lor his deposition from power, and the substitution in his stead ot another; for they perceive that under his auspices France promises to realize the most sanguine expectations of the friends ol liberty throughout the world. This is just such a coarse ot conduct as might be expected from the newspaper press of monarchical England. There is every reason to believe that he has saved the republic from the create.t curs; that could befall it; that he has, by his energy, thrown to the winds the web of destruction which the monarchists and aristocrats ot J.urojic had so furtively, yet widely, wove around his country; and hence the desire to depose him. This accounts lor their attempts to undermine him : but he his shown the fallacy of their calculation-, lie is I stronger than e\er in the estimation, and we may ' add, the uflection-, <>i the people and their repreI seiitatives ; and France to-day, through his agency, is the strongest nation in liiurope. There is probably no man living, at the present time, on whom I so much responsibility rests as on this mail. He is the cloud by day and the pillar of lire by night, to the advocates ot human freedom throughout linrope. Helias already immortalized hini-elf; and if it should happily occur that through his instrumentality France shall go she has g urn on since his advent, hi- name and his memory will Le blessed for all time to come. JI- will occupy a niche in ihe temple of immortality. "Watcii tip: Ln< i.v>iann:?.? We have had occasion so frequcutlv to record numerous instances of destruction of property,in this and the neighboring cities, by fire, the manifest work of incendiaries, that we feel astonished with what ease th"se reckless plunderers seem to del^ the laws and baffie the police. In the many caries of arson which come up before our law courts, the law appears to be administered with too much leniency m cases where the loss ol life has not heen the re. suit; and thus, many a would-be assassin and plunderer escape Ins due punishment. Our |>o|ice, as a body, are a pretty efficient check upon those marauders that nightly prowl about our streets; but yet the night patrol are not sufficiently strong to prr tect the lives and properties of our ci. tizons, w here a systematized plan of action is evidently set on foot by hordes of these plunderers. Any person w alking through some of our smaller branch streets, would be forcibly struck with the ' exposed manner in which some of the houses are mc?ssarily left, tor want of a more extended night force. This could be easily remedied by increasing that peculiar branch; and thus life and property would be more secure. It i- lolly for those who chatler about economy, in this department, to look blindly on when audi seem ? as thos we arc so frequently doomed to witmliy fire, present themselves, olten (lie remit of accident or neglect, hot oft ner the result r.i the well-practiced hand of the incendiary. The 'ate agitation on the snbject of the death penalty /or crime, has given a confidence to this class of men, which makes them more reckless than in former years ; and if there were less scruple in this respect, we are firmly of opinion there would he less of this dreadful species of crime. The incendiary is not only a robber by profession, but he is a murderer in the worst sense; for lie makes his aerc.'ard of human life subservient to his thirst for plunder?he prowls, and steals, and plunders in the dark. In this large and populous city, there is no more dangerous enemy, and none th at requires to be watched with such untiring vigi1. nee. VPc should have no niggard economy, therefore, in th< tudicious and enlarged distribution of the police force who form the night patrol , in this city. It is not the open and extended spaces 1 that alone require to be watch* d with cure ' ? it is no! the largest and wealthiest i - I talhshments ; but the nooks, and corners, 1 and avenues, that afford a cover for the many . u-picious looking vagrants that nightly < to and fro in our very midst. The incendiary | caught in the act, ought to be dealt summarily l w ith in all cases, and it would soon operate beneficially?far more so than in parading the oliender I through a mock trinl, upon the charge of " attempt j to commit ?r*on." He who attempts the crime, i ,? I 7 My guilty ; for ii llCftth Of ' destruction to property has not been t ic result, the culprit is not to be credited for it. When ?e wmess such awful devastations of property, and such frequent losses of life, by fire, accidental, or otherwise, we feel that we cannot be too careful in calling attention to the importance of the entire subject, and giving their due share o' credit to our police and tire companies lor the vigilant manner in which they discharge their duties, with a force so small in comparison to the great area within which they are compelled to act during their nightly patrol. Ourl'ire Pep irtnient, too, ure eminently worthy of commendation for their efficiency ami zealous attention to their duties : but the scantiness of the night police patrol, and their consequent inability to render instant service s, lias onen ueen tne cause 01 vas. losses 01 projvriy, and also losses of life. This matter should he looked into. Anothkk Act of Inhumanity?Tiik Necessity i ok Small Pox Hospital.?We frequently hear of eases of sickness from small pox, attended with circumstances which would disgrace the wildest Indians at the West, or the savage inhabitants of Africa. The other day we heard of a patient being actually thrown into the street, ta live or die, as the case might be, shelter and attendance having been refused to him ; and, were it not for the pin* lanthrcpy of one of our citizens, the individual probably would have died, from neglect and exposure. A similar instance has come to our knowledge, which reflects dishonor on our city, and unutterable discredit on a member of the medical profession. It appears that a young man felt indisposed for lliree or lour uays, ana ousnwiig a rusii ui cru|?tion on Ins urms, he was advised to apply to a physician at once, and inquire the nature of his ailment. The name of one of our doctors was men I tioned, and straightway lie repaired to his ofHce Alter stating the symptoms, and exhibiting the eruptions oft his body, this hopeful disciple of .Hsculapius immediately pronounced that it was a case of small pox ; and, instead of prescribing for him, or giving him any advice, he ordered him to leave his establishment instanter. As might be expected, the young man was thunderstruck at the manner of the doctor, and could not comprehend it, or the order to depart. He was soon, however, relieved ut all doubts, by a repetition of the order, Finding that he would be obliged to leave, he enquired if he could not get admission into the hospital, and was informed that he could not. He then sought the street, and wandered up and down, knowing not what to doFinally, he reached the Battery, and whilst turn" ing over in his mind the treatment which he had received from this doctor, whose name untortunately we have not learned, he concluded to drown himself, rather than die in the streets of this moral and Christian city, by disease and neglect. Happily, before he put his determination into effect, he observed a benevolent looking colored man, to I whom lie imparted full knowledge of Ins situation, unci promised him that if he would take care of hitn during his sickness, he would remunerate hint. If he died, his friends, he said, who lived at a distance, would do so. The kind-hearted | RfJsTC, thereupon, acted the part of the Samaritan, took the destitute and unfortunate young man to his humble home, and attended him until he recovered. Comment on the outrageous conduct of this medical man is scarcely necessary. We regret exceedingly that his name has not been furnished to us; we would publish it in full, so that he might receive his deserts from an indignant public. Our principal object, however, in reciting the details of this case, is to direct the attention of the public to , the necessity of making some provision for the j attendance und comfort of small pox patients other I than we have. < )ur city is filled with boarding i houses and hotels. Instances of this kind hie j likely to occur at any time, and if the uulortunate : patient is in tin; house of some persons, no mercy ! is shown to him. Measures tor his immediate removal, to the streets, if no where else, are taken, ' I and he is packed oil' as expeditiously us possible, j I to do- of negket. This certainly should not be. ' I We boast a good deal of our liberality and ! : humanity. We have societies for the suppression j i of drain drinking?for the conversion of the | heathen in foreign lands; we have various be- ' ncvolent institutions, which are partly supported ! by individual contributions, und why should we not have an hospital where due care and attention would he bestowed on patients sick with small \~ pox ! We do not l?-lieve there is a city in tilworld hut this, where sick people are turned out ! ot doors, and left to die in the streets, because J they are affected with that loathsome disease, ' nnall pox. The Steamship A cam a once more.- One of the i pusjengers onboard the Acadia, at die time of her I recent detention by the fog, has sent us the subjoin- t cd communication : which, notwithstanding otirin. clinalion to let the matter rest where Capt.

I The ground upon which you exonerate the agents . of the steamer from the charge of unnecessary delay in landing the passengers is, that they wore only carrying out certain provisions of the laws relative to public lit hi ill forbidding the landing of passengers until tho health officer has visited the vet sal. On enquiry. you will find tha' the law you quote, is applicable luainly to vessels having some contagious disease on boaid. But this is immaterial. It is a notorious tact here. and. I doubt not. in New York also, that th< se British mail steamers have always been considered an exceptions by the health officers ; and hero they , have ut all times been allowed to land passengers at ' their pleasure, by complying with a law of tho Com i monweallh requiring the commander of each steamer ( to retuin a certified list of his passengers, within S4 , hours afttr arriving in port to the - Allen ( ornmis- 1 slon< r." twill here Insert a copy of a note, received ( ii> nm-wer to one addressed to said commissioner, en- t qiiitmg what the practice has been in reference to the t Cur.ard steamers :? j (Copy.) ! r\ c ? .

A PASSENOKH. I Cl SYMPATHY FOft Z&fiLAND. ANOTHER ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING. Contributions Pouring In. Ac. Ae. As. Pursuant to notice, the friends of human freedom held another meeting, at Vauxhall Garden, in this city, last evening, tor the purpose of collecting money, tor the assistance of the jieople of Ireland, in their struggle with the haughty, insolent, and upstart monarchic aristocracy of England, it was not expected that the assemblage would be so large as others that have convened there on similar occasions, on account of the lack of corroboration ot the exciting news which was recently published in una country, announcing mat a serious conniet had taken place between the Irtsh people and the Ehglish troops, in which the former were triumphant ; still lite large room of Vauxhall was crowded to overflowing, and a spirit that could not or would not comprehend the possibility of an Irish defeat, animated the assemblage. The contributions slice the meeting on Monday last, together with the subscriptions of the evening, amounted to the large sum of four thousand dollars and upwards, a considerable portion of which was transmitted from distant places, A few minutes after the time appointed, (8 o'clock.) the meeting was called to erder. James W. Wiiite, Esq , was appointed Chairman, and Messrs. Richard S. Emmktt, C. A. Shea, C. Davis, and A. Clark, Secretaries. On taking the chair, Mr. White said that he would state to all who are engaged iu this, which he hoped will be a successful cause, that there is a very intense interest attached to it at the present time. The movement for Irish independence has, we kuow, commenced. We have received many accounts which crcumstances tbat bad taken place on the other side of the water, previous to the tailing of the last steamship. and he hoped and believed that they will soon be satisfactorily cleared up We shall very soon have intelligence, which will atford us indications as to the true condition of matters there. It is very difllcult, jea, it is almost impossible, in the present state of matters in Ireland?taking into consideration the means employed by government to keep us and the rest of the world in ignorance of what transpires in Ireland, and to keep the people of one part of Ireland in ignorance of what occurs in anothi r part?t is almost impossible to ascertain what is the true and actual state of affairs in our country. We have had accounts from there, which, if we could place reliance on tbein, are of a most cheering character; und, ou tbe other band, we have had accounts, emanating ffcm Knglisliinen,und from paid agents of the Knglish government, in which the grossest misrepresentations, and the most insulting and ridiculous statements have been made, respecting the conduct of the Irish pet pie These latter uccounts bear ou their face indubitable evidence of falsehood; and although the Irish direc'ory cannot say, and never have said, that full reliance cun be placed on the favorable accounts wbich have been received, aud which are calculated to cheer the hopes of thd friends of Ireland, yet we do say that there is strong gr-und lor hoping that they hare a foundation in fact, and that the sDirit of resistance to ounression. has been

successful in a conflict with the forces of the government. (Much applause.) A great deal has boeu said in the newspaper press, of a character hostile to our caute. and hostile to the progress of free principles, but the character of the iQtelligeuce received is favorable to our hopes for Ireland. (Cheers) In some of these statements, imputations were thrown out that the letter published in the Tribune was manufactured here in New Voik for ibe^occatioa : but he, the speaker, had seen that letter?the Irish directory h id examined it carefully, and it does impliciicly believe that it was written in tho city of Dublin and that it was a genuine letter. (Ureat applause.) lie would further say on the port ot the directory on this point as has before been said, that although there can be no doubt as to the genuineness of that letter; still, the details could be no more than rumors which were afloat in Dublin among the people there, at the time when it was written, and that tui reports which it contains found believers ataong the people thero. (Applause.) AVe have never said more than this?that the prevalence of such reports was eucourugiog, and he hud every hope that further accounts would bring to us cheering intelligence that the people were up and in conflict with the government lorces, and that the contest in which they were en gageu wouiu ue successiui. ai an events, we snail soon be informed as to the truth of those reports. For mjself, I cannot help entertaining the conviction, after a careful examination of all the circum-fauces, and all the intelligence that has conic to hand, that that the ) eople of ,'icland are resitting the government, and that they were malting an attempt to achieve the independence of their native land. (Great app.ause.) The accountsjTioiu the other side contain as much as induces us to believe they are gross misrepresentations. The Kcglish newspapers are filled with accounts that sub-inspector Truut and forty policemen have suppressed the rebellion, and yet the very latest accounts by electric telegraph show that largo bodies of troops were moving from one point to another?that they were cut tip with fatigue?that they were obliged to sleep on their arms; and yet they would have us believe that the attempt of the people of Ireland to achieTe their independence hail been suppressed in this manner. Taking all those circumstances into consideration, and another which we find stated in the F.nglish papers at the latest date, that a rumor existed that the barrack of L'ashel bad been taken by the people, and a large number of the police killed,?I say, taking all thoen circumstances In connection, we have inducements from all sides to believe that the people bate taken the stand, which, as patriotic people, they ought to take under the cilcuuntancc* in which they are plawed. We hare cause tohope, and placefuil faith in the success ofthe exertion.- which the people of Ireland are nuking; and 1 trust that the intelligence which we shall soon rective, will justify those hope?, and that the success of the cause of Ireland and "of liberty will be so indubitably proved a* to render it impossible to damp the aider of their friend? here.] Mr. CutitLc* O'Convor then road the Items of subscription that hud been received since the meeting on Monday evening last.
