THE DETAILS OF THE FOREIGN NEWS. We publish, this morning, a telegraphic sum- | nary of the foreign news, which was received in this city by telegraph from Boston yesterd uy, the publication of which created much excitement. We shall receive our files of foreign exchanges this morning, and will publish the details of tne ews in an Extra Herald, in the course of the fore>oon. We have concluded to do this in order to gratify the desire of our citizens to learn full particulars of the transactions in Ireland, for the week previous to the sailing of the Britannia. TB&BGHAPBZC. ARRIVAL OF THE STEAMSHIP BRITAWWIA, AT BOSTON. ONE WEEK LATER NEWS FROM ILL PARTS OF ECROPE. The steamship Britannia was announced at Bos tM yesterday. We received the following despatch at five mi utes past nine o'clock in the morning :? Boston. Saturday. 0 A. M. The steamer Britannia is thirty miles below. She will be ap about twelve o'clock. ine iiriiannia sailed ironi Liverpool on Saturthe 12th inst. ; and her news is, therefore, | even days later than that received here by the #unbria. THE NEWS. IMPORTANT FROM IRELAND. ARREST OF SMITH O'BRIEN. ESCAPE OF O'GORMAN TO AMERICA. Arrest of Several American Citizens, i THE MARKETS Ac., Ac., Ac. The Britannia arrived at Halifax on Thursday might, at 12 o'clock, and left for Boston at 3 A.M. j last Friday. She arrived at her wharf, at the latter eity, at 1 P. M., having made the passage in ' toarteen days. The Britannia passed the Acadia at 7 A. M. on Friday, about lorty miles we6t of Halifax. The Niagara made the passage home in 10 days amd 17 hours. The steamship Sarah Sands, Captain Thompson, nailed from Liverpool on the 7th instant, her regular day. The Buena Vista arrived at Halifax on Thurs**7, P- M., and will leave lor Boston on the ar- | vival of the next English steamer. We begin our telegraphic details with? Very Interesting from Ireland. Affaire in Ireland have Hot materially changed, though every day seems to lessen the probability af any serious outbreak. That this unfortunate [ 1 oantry is not now plunged into all the horrors of ' 1 a civil war, is not to be attributed to the disinclination of the ]>eople to rise up in arms?but, rather it would seem to be the want ol bold, able, and trust- i 1 od leaders. Mr. W. S. O'Brien was arrested on Saturday veaing, August 5, at the railroad station at Thnrles, whilst in the act of procuring a ticket for Limerick, where, it is said, he intended to have taken retuge among bis Iriends. Immediately after his arrest he was marched to Bridewell, and i nbaequenlly conveyed to Dublin, and lodned in ; Xibnaiaham jail. ] iter O'Brien's arrest, he is said to have ! expressed himseli satisfied of the hopelessness j 1 f accomplishing his object, and that he was ' indaced to leave his retreat in the mountains. ! because the farther he went, the more the ( people seemed to fear to harbor him, or hold any j communication with him. O'Brien is said to be , cheerful, and his wife is allowed free access to hia. Other friends are permitted to converse with bun, in the presence of the jail authorities. There does not appear to have been any serious disturbance in any part of the country, since the Cambria sailed, and, according to the Knglieh accounts, it seems quite impossible that there should be any, so long as the government sustains its pre" sent attitude ol repression. Numerous arrests couiinue to be made, and, ' among others ol recent date, we notice the names ' ?f 1 ?t. M.

[From the Freeman's Journal, Aug. <?.] We have received the following important communication from a correspondent in whom ws have peifect faith? Thosi.es, Tuesday, 7 o'clock, P. m. I hsve just learned, through a source In which I can implicitly rely, t) at a cou munlcation has been made to the Irish government, t' rough the mediation of an influential Catholic Clergyman, from he parties who, next lifter William Smith O'Brien, were considered the moet important, against whom warrants hare been is sued. The communication. 1 understand, is t > the effect that these gentlemen undertake to surrender themselves to the government upon receiving the assurance that none of (Ac proceeding* instituted against any of (Ac Slat* prisoner* iAall extend to the taking of lift It appears that this communication was induced on the parties hearin; of the arrest of Smith O'Brien on Saturday evening. It is stated that one of the chief witnesses for the Crown, at the trials of Mr Smith O'Brien, and the other parties implicated in the insurrection and conepiracv, will be Mr. P. J. Barry, who had been Secretary of the first Young Ireland Association, and who remained all along a prominent member of the Confederacy. The Government have issued another proclamation which may almost be understood aa Ix>rd Clarendon's reply to the attempt to induce hun to enter into communication with the outlying insurgents. This proclamation, after reciting the former one of the let of August, denouncing the penalty of ,.v . ? -,.v? ?..wvtv? U..W...U uaiuvi UI tuiil/XOi U1C conspirators, adds the follows g caution, intending to cramp their hopes of escaping to America in British vessels. "F1TRTIIER CATTTON. "All masters of emigrant ships, packets and seagoing Terrell, arc hereby warned that the penalty Of treason will attach equally to them, should they be concerned in faToring the escape of any of the persons above named, or others, whom they shall know to hare been engaged in treasonable practices.

The following letter, lrom a member of the press, who has visited Tipperary, gives a rather important detail of the teeling which prevails in the south of Ireland:? ' After having traversed the greatest part of both ridings of the county of Tipperary, I halt at this little village, situated at the foot of the Galtee mountains, and on the{bordere of the county of Limerick, to give you a brief abstract of the result of my observations. Kebvllion 1 louud not. I have said that I did nrtfind rebellion?that is true. I did not see an army of insurgent*, or any thing that gave indication of the actual existence of civil war; nevertheless a rtltliion dots est it?if the whole of the south of Ireland is not at this moment plunged into all the horrors of a civil, or rather servile war, the reason is to be attributed not to the disinclination of the people to rise up in arms, but solely to the want of a proper epportunity, and of bold, able and trusted leader*.? This Is no hasty impression, or idle guess-work. It Is a deliberate conviction, founded on the most satis" factory evidence. Every mile I've travelled, every j person 1 convened with, every fact bearing on the | ^object vrhich has come under my observation?all have served te impress indelibly on uiy mind the truth i of tie statement I have made. Let no man "lay tLe flattering unction to his soul'' that i the spirit of disaffection has been crushed; true it is tLat the wise and salutary precautions of the govern- i ment. have saved the country from convulsion for the , present; but the winter is fast approaching, the season I for a bivouac will hare passed, the troops must be > drawn into winter quarters, and then the hour for mischief will have arrived. 1 have heard it stated, and the statement does not seem improbable, that the ^adcrs intend to remain passive until the winter seta in that they are quite satisfied, for the present, with harrasbing the soldiery, and frightening the govern- ' ment; but that they are steadily biding their time Much, however, will depend upon circumstances. In the course of my wanderings, I have met with a great many country gentlemen, and all of them agree in thinking, that the rebellion is not extinguished?that it still smoulders, and they look with considerable apprehension to the coming winter. Certainly, it Is unreasonable to calculate that all the wild theories which have been propounded by the anarchists and Jacobins ? the visions of wealth, happiness, and independence which haTe been held out to the misguided people, it is unreasonable to suppose that these congenial theories ' have taken no root, or that the people after such golden dreams, will rink back without a struggle of some kind into their former position. The absentees are fast returning to the country, and there are at present a , great number of resident gentry in the county of Tip ymmij. i umt tut it presence may serve to cneck the existing spirit of insubordination in all quarters. I bare heard that there has been no surrender of arms worth speaking of, under the proclamation?the constabulary are busily engage^ in searching for them, and to-day 1 met a large force in the neighborhood of (be town of Tipperary, engaged in that business, but with little success The conduct of the Iloman Catholic clergy, in the present crisis, has been most praiseworthy, and I have heurd it commended by their hitter political opponents. On last Sunday. Dr. Howry. the parish priest of the town I hare just mentiond. delivered a most impreaaiTe discourse to his floek, in the criminality of the Club system, and I hare auhonty for stating, that it produced the reey best re vlts. The police in this county, are extremely vigiant. Patrols scotir the country every night, and all [terpens found cut at unreafonab.e hours, are searched. The Crops 111 Knglnnd. 1 luring the fortnight ending on the 11th instant, the weather had been very unsettled, in the southern counties especially. Not a day had passed without heavy rains, und ua the wheat hod been out in various parts, this unseasonable weather not only retarded hurrest operations, but would, if it continncil a few Itn longer, very materially affect the yield all over the ' rountry. At present, however, no tendency to 1 speculation hod been exhibited. If the potato crop should prove seriously injured, joth in Kuglttnd and Ireland, (and statements to .his efiect Hre rapidly multiplying,) the con'ir- 1 juencrs will be very serious. , A iralrs In Kroner. i The chief consideration in Paris, at 'he pres-at < n?iin nt, ts the crilical of Northern Italy. ' I TH!WfTnfWTpToBIaTirTiie7TIng? b ivo t dcen place " in Pans, imd Lord Palmerston, in the House oj Commons, hue stated that Her Majesty's govrrnrneut are deeply sensible of the great im|M>rtaace of feeing a termination put to ihat unfortunate warfare; ard, he added, " I am able, although I have no rurht to speak for another government?yet I believe I may assure the House that that desire is equally shared by 'he French government. Her Majesty's ministers are, therelore, 1 may say, if not already engiged, about to take steps in conjunction, I trust, with the government o! France, for the purpose of endeavoring, by amicuble negotiations, to bring that warfare to an end " The last journals from Paris are entirely ocett* pied with the Italian question, and the funda have exi>erienced a decline, in consequence ot its threatening aspect. Two thousand ol the insur- 1 gents of June, sentenced to transportation, have been sent to Brest, L'Orient, &c., where they were to oe confim d until the government should have fixed their destination. It is probable that their families will be allowed to join them. An unsuccessful attempt was made on the 5th inst., to assassinate M. Thiers; the shot intended lor him was received by a little girl, who was seated at the gate opposite the dwelling of M. J Thiers. A decree has been published, removing the suspension pronounced on the 27th June, against twelve of the more radical journals. Important from Lomhanlyi lfecent events in Lombardy huve been rapid, decisive, end most unexpected. A fortnight ago, Charles Albert was a successful conqueror?almost all Lombardy was within his grasp. Now, the whole breadth of Lomburdy has been retraced by the Piedmonlese army, and Charles Albert, utterly defeated at every point, is either shut np in Milan, or, perhaps, has crossed the Mincto into his own dominions. Prussia. The Prussian capital still continues to be the scene oi political cabal and excitement, ine people are, for the moment, occupied with the renewal of the war with the Danes. The exact position which Prussia is to take in the newly concocted Gemiun scheme of government, is not yet ascertained. The latest news from Vienna reports, that the Emperor of Austria had resigned, but no credit was attached to it. The whole range of Eastern Europe seems more or less aflected with the cholera, and four cases have appeared at Berlin, all of which terminated fatally. The Circular of Bar lug; Brothers St Co. London, Friday, Aug. II, 1848. The weather, though certainly finer during the week has been sufficiently unsettled at this critical period of harvest, to cause some excitement in the corn market; but most articles of colonial and foreign produce remain without improvement in value export demand having been again checked by the approaching Danish blockade.

Also 600 bags bio at 26s fid. and 500 bags Costa Rica 32s 6d up to 200 casks; COO bags Cuba for expert only offered at auction this afternoon, were all sold, but at very j low prices; say from 36s 6d up to 62s for fine ordinary to fine middle, with common ragged from 23s to 27a { per col. Tbe continental ad rices are a devoid of in- ! terest; for, low as prices are. buyers continue to con- J fine their purchases to actual wants. Cotton.?The demand at Liverpool has been mode- ' rate through the week, and, as the quantity offering has been large, prices hare been certainly rather in faTor of the buyer. Corn Market.?The corn market, on Monday, waa rather dnll, and most articles rather cheaper. On Wednesday there was a good deal of excitement, and large speculative purchases of foreign wheat and beans, in bond, floating, though not much was done on the spot. Indian corn neglected, and the best heavy Oa- I latz not worth over 32a. To-day holders were firmer, but, though accounts from Ireland, of the increased potato disease, were industriously circulated, there was little inclination evinced to operate, and prices showed no tendency to improvement. All duties remain the same, this week. We subjoin duty-paid quotations, which differ little from those in our last, say?U. S. red wheat. 46s a 49s per imperial quarter ; U. S. white do., 48s a 54s per imperial quarter ; U.S. flour, 28sa 28s Cd per barrel ; superfine best brands U. S. flour, ; 23s a 26s per barrel.

Some Quercitron bark sold I at 7s a 7s 3d per cwt ; and a small parcel American 1 beeswax, at ?6. Ten eases oil of cassia were withdrawn. Market a, Litirtool, Aug. 12.?The last week has been one of quietness in the commercial circles. The cotton market has been steady, and sales to a moderate extent hare taken place. There has been no activity in the corn market, and prices are rather on the deeline. The iron trade continues without improvement ; in faot, prices are somewhat lower. Money is still plentiful, and the rate of interest continues moderate. The stock market has been tolerably steady, but. at the same time, subject to fluctuations. During the week, the cotton market has been quiet and inactive. The sales have amounted to 29,290 bales Buyers were enabled to obtain American descriptions at a slight decline on the rates current on the 6th inst. Among the sales of the week, speculators took 1.700 American ; 6,710 American have beea purchased fbr export. The sales in London have been limited at pre- i tous rates, viz:?New Orleans 3% a &'?d~ bowed | Georgia 8X a 6d. The stock of eotton on hfemd at LI erpool. Is now estimated at 601,700 bales, against 396,660 at tbe same time last year, showing an increase of no less than 200 030 bales. Aa a matter of eourse, the trade will continue to rule dull j nntll continental affairs hare been settled,and the Irish agitation completely subdued. Various and very conflicting rumors aro afloat as to the existence and extent of the potatoe disease. It is admitted that the disease has made its appearance this year, bot it is not believed that the plant has been injured to any serious extent. The general reluctance of speculators to ope" rate to any extent, has caused the eorn markets throughout Lngland, Ireland and Scotland to fluctuate 1 during tbe week. At Mark Lane, on Tuesday last, the finest descriptions of Knglish wheat sold at fttaftfl* pr qr. which was in seme instances, a decline of Is per quar on our quotations of last week.

Pennsylvania 26 Ohio 23 Total 40 It will be observed that the vote of either of the two doubtful States is sufficient to elect Taylor, while both of them are required to elect Cass even if we transfer Louisiana from the whig to the democratic column. The latter State, being the residence of General Taylor, we think it fair to presume that it will vote for him, although we know it is confidently claimed by the democrats for Cass, in the same manner as they claimed Ohio for Harrison, in 1840, and the result showed the fallacy of the calculation. Polk's majority ? in T.ouismnn. in 1 K4.1 wna (SIQ ukl.l. moo effected by the surprising democratic majority in the parish of Plaquemines, viz : 970 ?w hereas it was only 210 in that parish in 18-10. Harrison's majority in the State, at the same time, w as 3,680. The democratic majority on the Congress tickets, at the last election (1847), was 1,529 in lhe State; the whigs, at the same time, carrying ! a majority in the Legislature of two on joint ballot. Among the States conceded to Cass in th^bove table, are Georgia, 10 votes; Indiana, 12; ana Wisconsin, 4?total, 26 electoral votes, which may be considered doubtlul. On the other hand, the votes of Connecticut 6, New Jersey 7, Florida 3, Loui- ! sisna 6, Tennessee 13, North Carolina 11, and Iowa 4?in all, fifty elecioral votes?are claimed ] by the democrats, in some of their calculations* ! but not, in our opinion, with much plausibility' | Four of these States (in Italics) voted for Clay in I 1844; Florida was whig at the last election, for Congress and members of the Legislature, and in no State is General Taylor more popular than there, where so much of his military life was passed. Iowa has been nearly balanced at the last and previous State elections; and it is believed : lhat Taylors popularity exceeds that of the Btrength of the whig party, by some hundreds of votes. These are our reasons for classifying the States and electoral votes, as in the above table; and for believing that the present aspect of the political contest is, that it must be decided by ths votes of Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Baoanwav Theatre.?This elegant establishment will be opened to-morrow evening for the season, and every preparation has been made by the proprietor* to keep up the lame excellent and approved style of arrangements which characterised the doings at the t Broadway last season. They have a long list of attrae tions on band,kaud a rapidjeuocession of most elegant 1 and variedamuiemeuts will be presented. Mr. Forrest, c the eminent tragedian, ha* been engaged, and will perform evety evening during the aoicing week; be will appear In many of his most tavorite characters. " Othello'* will be the first one. The farce of the " Captain of tbo W ateh" will also be played. We may mention that % the company is a first rate one.

Mr. H I'lucide was exceedingly felicitous, as usual, in his personation of the antiquated fop, and was well sup- 1 ported by Mrs Maeder. a* Lady Gay Spanker. Mr. O.

(J Sefton.) was inimitable The manager of this house is determined that no exertion (hall be wanted on his part to make this establishment worthy of a continuance of that Satronagc which has hitherto bee., extended to it. On lunday night, Donizetti's military opera of ' La Kille du Regiment" will be presented for the first time ; and if we might venture to express an opinion, from the names of those who are to sustain the characters, we anticipate a rich treat The competition which will in future take place between this theatre and the other fashionable resorts of this city of the play-going world, will render it necessary for the enterprising proprietor to continue his efforts with unabated energy, and we see that he is fully alire to the requirements of the season. National. Theatre ?" Macbeth," by J. R. Scott was the attraction at this bouse, last evening, and he peiformed his part with the good taste and judgment, which marks his delineations of Shakspuarian characters. Mr Scott ia a most popular actor, and his present engagement at the National Theatre has been a most satislaotory one for all concerned. Mr Chanfr.iu will keep the excitement up at his house, for no sooner has Scott concluded, than he has other novelties in readiness, and to-morrow lie will produce a new drama ot great interest, entitled "Sarah, or the Vow of Death." It is of the romantic style of drama and will be produced with great splendor and scenio magnificence. Miss Mestayer, furdey. Palmer. Herbert, and the rest of the company will appear in it. Chan frau has made his theatre one of the most elegant and respectable in the city, aud we are glad to see he is receiving patronage commensurate with his efforts to give the public elegant entertainment. t Burton's Theatre.?The popular comedy of " Old I Honesty" was performed here last evening, by an ex- 1' cellsnt cast.

Imme- " diately after the performance, M. Frederick, danced a J'ai du Malrlot, in which he was loudly applauded. The entertainments of the evening passed off in a creditable maimer. The popular drama of Oombey and r Son" will be repeated for the twelfth time to morrow t evening The h'gh ta'ents of the compatiy at this po- r pular theatre, and the very elTective cast selected to represent the piece, have already insured for it along run, and its enthusiastic a Imirers will nut fail to avail themselves of the opportunity again presented to witness the extraordinary ability of .Mr. Burton, in the favorite character of Captain Cuttle.
