A very grave question oflecting the "right of search," and calculated to revive a long p?ndi?z controversy between the British and our own governments is likely to form a prominent topic for ( discussion end negotiation, growing out of some 1 I recent arrests of American citizens in Ireland. It ' is time that some filed principles should be laid 1 down to guide our citizens, and enable them to 1 shape titeir course in this respect. The adopted cut/en, in renouncing all allegiance to a foreign pov.-er, and clothing himself in the proud garb oi tree citizenship, feels a confidence in the protection he will rtceivc under the Hag of his adopted country. There is an anomaly in the state of the law in this respect, as regards our relations with England; and the declaration of intentions and subsequent initiation to the privileges of American citi* zenship, become a mockery so long as our govern" rnent will not enforce respect for its provisions.

Newa from Kuropc. The steamship Niagara, from Liverpool, is due at this port, with seven days1 later intelligence from all parts ol Europe. There is not so much anxiety or excitement in the public mind, relative to the nature oi later advices; but some curiosity exists to learn the progress of ibe rebellion, since the arrest of the principal leaders. The probability is that the news will not amount to much any way?that no fighting has taken place?that the government has extended its forces over the whole of the disaffected districts, and effectually put down every demonstration against it. Some interest is manifested to learn the policy of the government relative to its prisoners. The political state of the Continent of Europe is, just now, the most important matter, and we may receive accounts of the successful mediation ol France and England, in a peaceable settlement ol the questions et issue between the powers engaged in hostilities. The harvests are another item ol interest. The progress of the potato disease in Ireland, and the effect of the unfavorable weather, up to the time the previous steamer left, will be more definitely known on this side of the Atlantic after the arrival of the Niagara, and prices for breadstuff's in out markets more satisfactorily determined. In the event of the potato disease having become general, and the grain crops much injured by the unfavora ble weather, we shall see an activity in our grair markets, little dreamed of a tew weeks since. A few days, perhaps a few hours, will settle all these questions. Osr Commercial Treaties?Iter Iproclty In Trade. The political revolutions in England, and the changes these revolutions have already brought about, will have a very important influence upon all treaties of commerce, and give an opportunity to perfect and edopt more liberal principles ip the formation- of tuture compacts. The Zoilverein has bepn destroyed by the new confederation of permAn States, and the difficulties which have existed heretofore in regard to the reciprocal commercial treaties, have no doubt also disappeared. In the event of the German confederation entering into negotiations with all nations relative to commercial intercourse, it will no doubt place each entirely upon an independent footing. me clause which has tor bo many years been attached to commercial treaties, made with different countries, that they shall be entitled to privileges equal to those enjoyed by the most favored nations, has placed all upon a par, and prevented concessions in favor of any one that would in return grant equal advantages. It was nothing in the world but the insertion of that clause in all the commercial treaties between the Zollverein and Great Britain, that prevented the treaty made between the Zollverein and the United States, a few years since, from being ratified by the combined powers. For certain concessions in our tariff on the products and manufactures of thoBe nations forming the Zollverein, we were to receive corresponding concessions on our products and manufactures imported into those coun* tries composing the confederacy. After the treaty with these improvements had been negotiated by tlie representatives of each power, it was discovered that any concessions made in the duty upon American manufactures imported into the Zollverein, must also be made upon similar manuis cturea imjotted font Great BritainThis at once arrested futtber progress?the new treaty was laid on the shelf, and the old one continued in force. Since that time wc have adopted a new tariff, which t?kes precedence of all commercial trerties, if its provisions art more favorable, but if not, commercial treaties regu'ate the commercial intercourse between all nations. The tariff'of placs the products and manufactures of the Zollverein, tn entering our iiorts, upon a more favorable footing than the tariff or IK42, or th* commercial treaties now in ex'stence, and it is consequently the law. By that act we are entit'ed to concession from the fierman confederation in the formation of new treaties or in the re-construction ol theirtariff (n accordance with this, and upon the prin. ciple of reciproc'ty, the Hon. A. J. Docelron, our minister to the German confederation, wre, at the last accounts, at Frenltfcrt, for the express purpose of negotiating a commercial treaty of the most liberal character. This movement hss becoir" a source of great tea* lousy to Kneland. and the Briti'h government will, without doubt, do everything :n its power to pre. vent a successful termination of the m-'ton of our r egotist or The course usually pursued by the government of Great Britain, whenever the government ol the United tStatcs commences negotiations relative to more favorable commercial treaties, pretty clearly illustrates the progress we have made as a rival in the commercial world, to that nation, and the fears entertained relative to our future success. As annoying as such interference undoubtedly is, it is highly gratifying that we huve so far advanced, in mich a short period comparatively, as to compete successfully upon the same looting with such a rwh and powerful nation. Tn spite of nH their efforts to check our progress, it will, under liberal commercial systems be more rapid than it ever yet ha* liern, arid ion.' after the rreBulaetiiriu?? inieirsts of Jingbind have t irnrd mc culminating uo'uif, our* will l?e incr ?*inir is eg !', w e.MeW acd to *"pcfmiv y. itiiuru uiiiriciii views iu hub uumr unary uh me subject; but the time may be said to have arrived when America is bound to look this matter boldly in the lace. The adopted citizen, ll, as in the war cf 1812, he can be claimed and pressed, and his citizenship treated as a nullity, feels a deep interest in the settlement of this question.? For instance, where a lJritish adopted citizen, i' arrested upon any charge in his native country, proclaims himself an American citizen, it should be held that he is fully entitled to be treated as such, and his case be disposed oi on its merits. The arrests that have lately taken place in Irelandi of natives and adopted citizens, who have put in the requisite protest with the American consul, is calculated to revive this subject; and as we have settled scores with England on the subject of Oregon, the Northern boundary, free trade, and other questions of vast national importance, we trust that some decisive measures will be adopted, to place this vexata yuettio, upon a proper basis, and afford protection to the adopted citizen who has fled here from British oppression. If a British subject who has renounced all allegiance to the Queen of England, by becoming an American citizen, can be seized, as in 1812, in any of our ships, and hanged tor proclaiming hostility to a government he has a " holy horror of j" if our ships can be entered on the high seas, and passengers taken from them, upon the mere vague accusation of a bribed police, we feel a confidence that our government will take prompt and efficient measure to check this high handed abuse, and daring invasion of right, such as formerly was claimed by England ovei^ those who left her dominions. Political offences do not come within the jurisdiction defined by the Ashburton treaty; and in the present convulsed state of Europe, we shall have many flocking from the shores of the respective nations upon that continent, who will need the legitimate protection of the laws of nations. Something should be done on this subject, to enable us to see M where we stand," in every pantinnlor TltP pqcpc n( tlincn rooonflir nrroctnfi in Ireland are peculiar; and li our government inter* fere at all in the matter, it at once becomes a quesp tion of great delicacy in a diplomatic point of view. I It will throw our adopted population in a state of great excitement, and the question is liable to come to a very critical one. Presidential Election?Whig Calculations. ?The friends of General Taylor have taken courage within a few days, and somewhat recovered from the alarm into which they were thrown by the movements of Mr. Calhoun and his friends in South Carolina, which movements showed a dis. position on the part of the democracy of the South to unite on Cass and Butler. 1 The affair at Albany having blown over, withi out apparently doing much harm to the whigs, and ' the recent indications from Ohio being that Taylor and Fillmore have a lair prospect of carrying the vote of that State, the following may be conI sidered as the present aspect of the contest, as i viewed by the whigs. I It is believed llifit Taylor will receive the same electoral votes as were given to Mr. Cla}' iu J --105 in naraber, with the addition of the vote of New York, 36?making in all, 141?and requiring i but five votes to elect him. That he will receive the votes of Louisiana, 6, Florida, 3, and Georgia, 10, is not doubted by the whigs?saying nothing of the votes of Pennsylvania, 26, Indiana, 12, Iowa, 4. and Wisconsin-4; all of which they con- i sider Taylor and Fillmore have a chance for, equal at least to the prospects of the democrats in Ohio. Such are the whig calculations for the last day of August. Anno Domini 1848. But what do calculations amount to I Tun Yellow Fiver.?The Board of Health met yesterday, to take into consideration rhe communication from the health officer of this port, announcing that the yellow fever was on Staten Island. We give the ptoceedings in another column. , It is to be expected that any intimation of the existence, or of the supposed existence, of this dreadful disease, will create a good deal of alarm and excitement, and be the means of spreading a thousand false reports of the actual appearance of the fever in the city. Those who spread such reports ought to be frowned down at once. Alarm 1 is almost as mischievous as the disease itself. We suppoee lhat severs! cases of the fever are really on the island. We cannot believe that the health officer would announce it to be there unless he felt sure of its existence. But this need not create unnecessary alarm. It has been there hefore. We would advise every one, however, to be careful. Saii.ixg of the Cajicriv ?The British mail steamer Cambria sailed yesterday morning, short ly aft?;r 12 o'clock, for Halifax and Liverpool.

New York Cm Horhr-The Lowtr Partoffbe City In Cn,fcn?8s. fi About three o'tiock yetterday eftfrnoon, one ? >i the workmen engaged in the New York gas I ivoikt, having bome work to perforin upon the 1 ;as< meter, repaired to that instrument, and commenced operations, with a lighted candle in one nne hand. As soon an the cock was turned, the gas escaped, and accidentally took (ire. In an instant, the (lames burst through the skylights in the root, and ascended a distance of sixty feet in the air, and, in a moment more, the whole building wan in one sheet of (lames. lleforc the alarm was g?ven, the main pipe leading to the reservoir, which is located in Church street, was shut o(f, which precluded the possibility of an explosion. The firemen were promptly on the spot, but the element had made such progress that all hope of saving the building was at an end, and their exertions were directed to the saving of the surrounding property. There were about one hundred barrels of tar and rosin in the building, which took tire, and here the sight was awfully grand. A solid sheet of flame, fifty feet deep, rose about one hundred feet high, and so intense was the heat, that several of those who were managing the pipes of the Hose, were obliged to retreat. The rear and part of the side wall, on Hester street, burst, and came down with a tremendous crash, and the falling of the roof seemed only to feed the racing element. It was reported about this time that there was donnnr nf art .1 vnl<\at/wt un/1 mamr nf than ll n uaugcj ui ?ii I.AIIIVOIVU) auu 11 inn; "i_ ?? *-' ?* v very prudently declined risking their lives, not being aware that the gas was shut off, until Aid. Adams appeared ana said all was safe ; he had consulted the president of the company, and there was no danger to be apprehended. They then went to work with mignt and main; but by this time the fire had communicated to the office, which was fast being consumed by the raging flames. The whole place being filled with gas. or other combustible material, burned like Under, and the building was almost entirely consumed before the progress of the flames was stayed. At one time a dense smoke issued from the windows of the cellar, but the free application of water soon stopped the fire in that quarter. The books and other valuables, in the upper part of the house, which was used for the manufacturing of fixtures, were all saved, and about $5,000 in cash, was found and secured by Captain Kissner, of the 14th ward police. The house at the corner of Hester and Orange streetB, belonging to the gas company, and occuSied by Mr. John McCaffrey, foreman in the gas ouse, was partially destroyed, though he succeeded in removing all his furniture. The house No. 124 Orange street, of wood, occupied by Mr. Adrian Graff; was destroyed ; No. 120, of wood, occupied jointly by Mr. Frederick Leak, gas fitter, and Mr. John Wishart, policeman, almost entirely destroyed; No. 128, of wood, occupied jointly by Mr. John Summerfield and Mr. William Strath, was also almost entirely destroyed. The inmates succeeded in removing all the furniture. The whole of the property destroyed belonged to the gas company, and their loss is estimated at about $20,000, upon which it is said there was a trifling insurance. After the firemen had succeeded in confining the fire to that portion above specified, the Hames still rose to a great height from that quarter of the building where the tar and rosin were stored, and up to a late hour was still burning. The firemen deserve all praise for their untiring exertions, for thev never rentier! wnrkinor. exrerit xt the time above stated, until the fire was entirely subdued, or at least so far as danger might be apprehended, a space of three hours. The police arrangements, too, were admirable, about two hundred of that department being quickly at their posts and rendering efficient service. , THE NIGHT SCENE. The lower part of the city, in the evening, presented quite a singular appearance. Instead of the brilliantly lighted stores which usually adorn our principal thoroughfares, all was darkness : ] and it was curious to observe how all the usual avocations, or pleasures of our citizens, were cut j off by this sudden accident to the gas works. The street lamps were lighted, but flickered and died. In our own office, we had to resort to candles, a lot of fine blue nose potatoes supplying the places of candle-sticks, much to the inconvenience of the printers. And we perceive, too, that some of those who profess to manufacture their own gas, were left in the dark, much to the astonishment of their neighbors. Two of our theatres, (Burton's and the National,) both of which were dependent upon the gas works for their light, were obliged to suspend operations forthe night, and, insteaaofbeautiful performances and the loud clamor of applause, *11 was still and darkness ; and those hotels which were looking to the gas works to light their splendid halls, parlors, and saloons, were lighted only by the dim flame of candles, which long had since ceased to be used among them. The old saving of " when a thing is missed, it is mourned," was fully verified at every turn, and the want of the much abused gas works was felt , by every one. A dismal gloom pervaded every i quarter, where the gas had long been the light to 1 the pedestrian's pathway, and it seemed as if the j whole section of the city which was affectad by ? the calamity, was in habiliments of mourning.? Never before, since the introduction of that great ] agent of light, has the city been subject to such a scene. The calamity will doubtless be hailed , L l.. .1 u: I _i?.. ?u Willi juy uy uiuDC wuu piuwi auuui uic uiy w iwu | i their fellow men; for never before has such an ! opportunity to practice their villany been afforded j them. It would be well for the Chief of Police to i prepare for theee midnight marauders, and place a sufficient number of men on duty to frustrate j their designs. The demand tor candles, about I dark was unprecedented. A single establishment, 1 between five and seven o'clock, sold forty boxes j of sperm candles at retail; and to that department ; of trade it has proved one of the fortunate events of business life. li will probably be some tune before the works , will be again in operation, so as to supply their j customers. Important Proceedings of the Board of Health. The Yellow Fever. The Board met yesterday morning, in the chain- : ber of the Board of Aldermen, to take into con- i sidcration the alarming accounts of fever on Staten Island, to devise means to prevent contagion, i and preserve the health of the city. The following communication from Dr. Whiting i was read :? " Quarantine, STATU* ISLAND. <f i 1 August 29. IMS. \ Hit Honor the Mayor?I deem it my duty to Inform you that there exists at this place, and in the villages of Tompkiosville and Stapleton adjoining, the Quarantine grounds, a disease that has. within a day or two past, assumed the character of malignant yellow fever . certain symptoms, and a mild form of the same disease, have prevailed for a period of ten or twelve days, but not sufficiently decided to justify its designation as yellow fever, by all the physician* in and , about this neighborhood; but. within a few days, a ' number of cases have occurred, with such definitive pjiupiuuip. ? vuvmk u?mrr emaoiianeu. j The ft rut eases occurred in the quarantine grounds ' Vmong the boatmen employed in the health officers' ] barge, and those of the revenue barge, and one or two > i employed on the steamboat dock, contiguous to this | place Subsequently, the cases occurred among per- > sons living near the shore, in a district extending | ' about a mile sonth of this place, and a quarter of a I . mile in shore The number of cases, thus far, has , been about fifty; of. these, the malignant cases, numbering twelve, commenced on Wednesday, the !K)d of | 1 August, and have been occurring daily since. Six i deaths have occurred from amongst these with all the ; symptoms of the disease so derided, as to leave no i , doubt, in the minds of the medical gentlemen who | have seen them, coneerning its natnre. | My attention was first callsd to eases outside, by I ' Dr. Smith of Tompkinavllle, a gentlemen of twenty ' vears professional experience here, and consequently i 1 having much opportunity for acquaintance with yet- ] low fever.

"Th Horning if Life" is a drama full of those incident that arouse the finest of human sensibilities, and fur ititbe d full soope for the development of those rersatil powers that belong to the two Misses Denln.

The difficulty o procuring a resting plsce, lu the Jensity of the rnul titude that filled every crevice of the theatre, pre eluded as from testifying to the merits of the graai burlesque opera of - Some-Ham-Ole-Bule but w< have no doubt it received, from the talents of *h< distinguished vocalists, the approbation it merits This evening the popular tragedy of "George Barn ell" will be represented, Mr. T. 0.

We oor lially congratulate the proprietor of this theatre upoi the enterprise that has rendered this establishmun independent of all extraneous light.

Mr. Forrest played the Cardinal. It isalmoi unnecessary to say that it was sustained with grea ability by this distinguished tragedian. In fact, th personation of this character alone is sufficient to toe the abilities of a great actor, and. in our opinion, Mi Forrest, last night, fully sustained his claim to the firs rank in his profession. Baradas, by Fredericks, wa weU performed, as was also the Chevalier de Mau prat, by Dyott.

We must not forget Francois, Rich slieu's page, whloh was sustained by Mr. Baker in a admirable manner. In fine, the entire piece was rc ceived with the loudest acclamations, by an audienc whose feelings bad been excited by tbe truthfu touching representation of the crafty, vindictive cat dinal, always surrounded by Intrigues and oonspiri cies, but whose gigantic mind enabled him to laugh t scorn the fruitless attempts of his enemies to rob hh nf hia nnirar Thura *?n mant nAflaatrea thrniiffhm the piece, which were read with excelling judgmei and emphasis by Mr. Forrest, which drew down reiti rated cheers.

Tonio, by M Li borde, was also performed with infinite success ; tt Marchioness of Birkenfield, by Madame Paul, was alt well personated, and the opera went off with muc success, before a highly fashionable and crowde house. The benefit of Mr. T. Placide, it will be r< membered, is fixed for this evening, on which oceasio Messrs. 11. Placide, Vandenhoff, Charles, and Mr Maeder will appear.
