THE DESTRUCTION or THE PACKET SHIP OCEAN MONARCH. BRBADrUL LOSS OF LXFB. BEPORTED REVOLUTION IN RUSSIA. Ac. Ac. Ac. The steamship Hibernia, Capt. Shannon, was telegraphed at Boston, at half-past 5 o'clock yesterday morning. She reached that city at 3 o'clock. Irish affairs have lost much of their interest, and now begin to be regarded with indiflerence, not only by the people, but by the government. The State trials have so far resulted in the conviction of one only of the chief leaders. John Martin, proprietor of the Felon newspaper, was found guilty, and has been sentenced to ten years' transportation. In the case of O'Doherty, the second jury were unable to agree upon a verdict. He is still confined, and at the next commission the trial will be again repeated. The government have determined upon issuing a special commission for the trial of Smith O'Brien and the other captured leaders in Tipperary. From every part of Ireland the reports give but poor hopes of saving the great bulk of the potato crop, added to which it is even reported that the grain crops will be below an average. The reports of famine have attracted the attention of the government. Measures have been adopted for ascertaining the real state of the case, and Lord John Russell has announced in the House of Commons that, should the fears now indulged in by large portions of the population prove well founded, Parliament shall be at once called together to adopt such measures as may appear necessary for Telieving the evil. The chartists of England and Scotland have caused some uneasiness in the public nnnd, for some time past; but the abortive attempt at revolution, made)at the close of the last week, has con siderably mitigated the fear previously indulged in, though the discovery of pikes, pistols loaded to the muzzle, daggers and swords, ball cartridges, powder, tow balls, and luctfers, proves the exts tence of a conspiracy, wide spread in its nature, and diabolical in its designs. These designs appear to have embiaced extensive incendiarism in the metropolis and the chief towns in the manufacturing districts, coupled with which were to have been massacre, robbery, and the destruction oi governmental authority. The London Timet, 25th ult., states that Lord John ltussell will start for Dublin in a day or twe? not to supervise, nor to control, nor to direct Lord Clarendon, but to observe the state of that distracted island, to see its real grievances, to examine their causes, and to confer upon their remedies. Messrs. Smith O'Bren and Meagher enjoy good health. They are pe nutted, we understand, to occupy the same cell in Ktlmainham, in conse quence oi the limited accommodation of th? building, in its present crowded state. Mrs. O'Brien provides the meals, and visits her husband daily. Mr. Whiteside has declined to act for Mr. Wm. S. O'Brien, and has sent back his retainer Mr. Duffy seems to have suffered dreadfully from lata imnrionnmpnf The Destiucf lou of the Packet Skip Ocean Monarch. The packet ship Ocean Monarch, Capt. Mar" clock, from Liverpool, 24th, for Boston, was burnt in the English Chnnnel soon after leaving port, and 150 persons perished. The Ocean Monarch, Capt. Murdock, left Liverpool, August 24, with 360 steerage passengers, 6 cabin, 22 second cabin, and, with her crew, had on board 398 persons. She had not proceeded far, however, before the utmost consternation was produced by an announcement that the ship was on fire?and scarcely had the alarm been given, when she was in a complete blaze. The scene which followed, may be more easily conceived than described. The passengers became frantic with despair, and numbers at once plunged into the ocean, to escape the more awful death which apparently awaited them. Husbands were thus severed from their wives, and wives from their husbands, and children from their parents. The captain finding that all control over the poor crea. tures was gone, and that the fire was making rapid progress, ordered both anchors to be 1 1 !_ <L.. L _r I * A. 1 'oweieu, in uic iiujirs 01 Drinking in? vrssei hard to the wind. In the act of lowering the anchors, many of the unfortunate pas sengcis were dragged into the ocean, thty having seated themselves on the chain cables, and were thus launched into eternity. At the time the fire was discovered, the vessel was about 8 miles to the eastward of' the great Orm's Head, and several vessels were in sight. A signal of distress was at once hoisted, which was immediately answered by a yacht belonging to Thomas Littledale, and which was about six miles distant. Mr. Littledale was himself on board, and at once bore down to render what assistance was in his power. There was a stiff breeze blowing, and had the yacht ventured alongside, it would have been total destiaction to all on board. A boat was, however, immediately lowered, and proceed ed to the ship, for the purpose of rescuing some of the unfortunate passengers. The scene which presented itself to Mr. Littledale, on nearingthe vessel, was of the most appalling and harrowing description. That gentleman truly describes it a8 awful, and such as he hopes never to witness again. The flames were burning with intense fury from the stern and centre of the vessel. So great was the ileat in these parts,tnat the passengers, male and female, n?n, women and children, crowded to the fore part of the vessel. Their piercing.heart-rending shrieks for aid were carried by the breeze across the blue waters. In their maddened despair, women jumped overboard with their offspring in their arms, and sunk to rise no more. Men followed their wives in frenzy, and were lost. Groups of men, women and children also precipitated themselves into the water, in the vain hope of self-preservation; but the waters closed over many of tKem forever. No pen can describe this awful scene. The (lames continued to rage with increased fury. In a few minutes, the mizen mast went overboard ; in a few moments more and the mainmast shared the same late ; there yet remained the foremast. As the fire was making its way to the fore part of the vessel, the passengers and crew of course crowded still further forward, to the jtb-boom ; they clung in clusters as thick as they ceuld pack, even one lying over the other. At length the foremast went overboard, snapping ?? E NE MORNI | the fastenings of the jib-boom, which,with its load I of human beings, dropped into the water, amidst the most hear-trending screams, both of those on board and those who were falling into the water. Some of the poor creatures were enabled to again reach the vessel?others floated away on spars; but many met with a watery grave. In about an hour and a halt after the yacht reached the vessel, the Brazilian steam frigate Al. phoiiso cama up; 6he anchored immediately to the windward, and close to the burning vessel; she go1 a rope made fast to the Ocean Monarch, and by the use of the said ropes,her boats were enabled to go backwards and forwards to the burning vessel with great facility, and by this mean9 a large number of persons was saved. The Prince of Wales steamer, which was on her passage to Bangor, came up shortly afterwards, and with the New World packet ship, bound for New loru, sent boats to tne reBcue ot tne passengers, and were the means of saving a large number. The Brazilian frigate Affonzo was out on a pleasure excursion. She was commanded by the Marquis de Lisboa. There also on board ware, the Prince de Joinville, his lady and suite, the Duke and Duchess D'Aumale, the Brazilian Minister, the Chevalier D'Lisboa, Admiral Grenfell and daughters, and other distinguished individuals* When the Aflonzo discovered the Ocean Monarch, no time was lost in bearing down to her, and it was intended to anchor right under their bow; but the wind changed a little, and prevented this from being accomplished. Four boats were, however, at once lowered, and were soon followed by the large paddle-box boat. The Marquis D'Lisboa jumped into one, and Admiral Grenfell into the other, and were untiring in their exertions to save the poor people.? The Prince de Joinville was particularly assiduous in assisting the passengers on board the frigate. Of those on board the O. M., 32 were saved by the Ocean Queen, 160 by the Affonzo, 16 by a fishing smack, end 17 by the Prince of Wales, being a total of 225 saved, leaving 153 to be still accounted lor. A subscription has been set on foot for the relief of the sufferers. Messrs. Baring Brothers & Co., the agents for the ship, nave suDEcriDeti xou, mc stirs. iiarnaeu vx ku. jux/, Messrs. Brown, Shipley Sc Co., ?20. Other parties have given from XI to X20 each. Prince de Joinville and party have also leit a handsome sum in aid of the fund. Those of the saved passengers who choose to proceed out by the Hope, on the 28th instant, or by the Sunbeam, on the 3d proximo, will be sent out by Messrs. Harnden, by either of those vessels. Great numbers of the saved, however, have been so terrified by what they witnessed and what they sufiered, that they yesterday called at the office, in Waterloo Road, for the passage money they had paid, when it was promptly refunded to them. The New World was in the neighborhood, and sent her boats, and was the means of saving a great number. A noble fellow, a seaman belonging to the New World, went to the wreck when there was little hope of saving any more, and stuck to the hulk of the vessel till every soul had left her. It is said this praiseworthy individual, by his own hand, lowered 100 persons to the boats below, of whom a great portion were women and children. The stewardess of the Ocean Monarch lost her life in courageously attempting to get the powder out of the cabin ?there were about 25lbs. weight on board, and when she went below to get it, it is supposed she was suflocated. The London Times, of 26th, says in relation to the loss : It is questionable, however, if the possibility of salvation must not have added to the l ~r u.. ?kA Dlllcrueso ui mc j'tuigo ciiujicu uy inc ouiicicio vu board the O. M. during the short space of time left them for teeling or thought. The cottages on the Welsh coast were so near that they could see men gazing upon their calamity from their own doors; the sea was studded, as it always is at the mouth of the Mersey, with boats and shipping; above all, they could [perceive the smoke issuing from the funnels of the steamers Orion and Cambria, which were coming up Channel for Liverpool. The account given by the masters of these vessels on their arrival at that port, is so circumstantial as to leave no doubt of their proximity to the awful tragedy that was in course of action on board the Ocean Monarch. Themasteis reported they saw flame issuing from the after part, and smoke from the fore pait, of the vessel. They saw that she was rendered unmanageable, and supposed that her steering apparatus was destroyed. They saw also the foretopmast go by the board. The masters of these vessels, however, when they perceived a Brazilian steam frigate lying near, quietly concluded they would be of no assistance, as they had a considerable number of passengers on board, and decided no continuing their course. It is to be hopedjthey saved their time at Liverpool, and met with the apnrnhsitinn of their emnlnvers r? ? c J ? When we find it recorded that by the exertions of Mr. Littledale and the crew of his little yacht, no less than 32 passengers were saved?that by a fishing boat 16 more were preserved, and that above all, 160 human beings were rescued from an appalling death, by the courage and humanity of the Marquis ^d'Lisboa, Capt. Grenfell and the Prince de Joinville, we cannot but think that had the Orion and the Cambria done their duty, we should not now have to i lament over the untimely and terrible destruction of ISO of the unfortunate passengers on board the O. M. We grieve that the circumstances of the case compel us to place the conduct of our own countrymen in unfavorable juxtaposition with the humanity and courage of the crew of the Affonzo. fc,It was the Cambria, Capt. Harrison, from New I York, that passed the wreck of the Ocean Monarch i without rendering assistance. We mu6t not omit to mention an act of heroism exhibited towards the crew, in this melancholy scene. When only a dozen helpless women and children remained on the burning wreck paralysed with fear, and totally incapable of helping themselves by descending from the tottering bowsprit to the boats, which, in the nndst of the heavy sea and wreck, in vain offered their assistance below, Frederick J. Jervine, a seaman of the American ship New World, stripping himsel' naked, made his way through the sea and wreck, and, with a line in his hand, succeeded in lowering the last helpless victim safely into the boats, being himself the last man to leave the wreck. On his arrival on board the Brazilian steam frigate Allonzo, h? was received on the quarter deck by the J'rince de Joinville and Duke D'Aumale, who, shaking him by the hand, praised his gallantry in the most flattering terms, bestowing on him at the same time an ample gratuity. The Ocean Monarch was insured in the Ncptnne oflice, for $3,500; Hope, $5,000; Suffolk, $10,000; Franklin, $10,000; Tremont, $11,000! Equitable, $10,000 ; Hoylston, $8,000 ; American, $10,(XX); and New England, $4,000. On her cargo, there wns an insurance in the Equitable oflice, for $3,000 ; Boylston, $2,000; New England, $7,500 ; National, $5,000; Lexington and Kentucky Marine, $10,000 ; also $13,000 on her freight. The total loss is estimated at $200,000The remainder of the insurance on her cargo is mostly here, but it is not yet correctly ascer- , tallied. i W Y C NG EDITION.?SATUI New* from the Continent. The Continental news generally is pacific. M.M. Arago, Cavaignac, I.aniartine, Ledru TCollin, Caussidiere, Murrast, and all the chief actors in the revolution, have severally been examined, and it is plain from the concurrent testimony of almost all, that the revolution was effected by a combination of the lowest of the people, chiefly connected with the Nalimxal and Rtformc newspapers. The money raised by loans and taxes has been squandered amongst the vilest of mankind, for the double purpose of creating an alarm ml'aris, whenever a political point was to be carried, and for the still more mischievous purpose of propagandism in foreign partsThe evidence given is loose, vague, and desultory. Each witness represents a principal. One witness, named Chenn, a police agent, of the vilest character, in the pay of Caussidiere, reveals all the proceedings of the conspirators, before and after February; and a more hardened,thorough paced villain has not appeared since the days ol Robespierre. lie proves the collusion between Ledru Rollin, l.adarin, Louis Blanc, Caussidiere, with Raspail, Sobrier, and the red republicans. The evidence of Cavaignac leaves a painful inipres" sion. He is openly charged with leaving Paris defenceless, by the insufficiency of the troops, and his explanations are not satisfactory. Ledru Kollin, if the evidence is to be believed, has taken eare of the future, and has contrived to remit about ?14,000 sterling to London, for investment in the funds. The commissaries which he sent to the provinces quite equalled in their character the infamous agents of the Convention. There were amongst uiem noerateu convicts, tailors, shoemakers?all of the worst kind. It is wholly out of our power even to form a conjecture of what may be the result of these most extraordinary documents?they have now been published some days, and Paris has become agitated in precisely the same mode, and has been the scene of similar imeuttt, to those which preceded the April, May, and June demonstrations. It is said that Cavaignac will endeavor to cushion the whole matter; but the reaction against the republic is now becoming so general, especially in the provinces, that we doubt whether he will be able to effect his object. Four socialist newspapers have been suppressed by a public decree. The most extensive military arrangements arc continually in force, to suppress any disorder in Paris. The Garde Mobile, in lurge detatchments, parade the city, and rumors are industriously circulated that the red republicans and the legitimists have coalesced, with a view to bring about a counter revolution. Our latest news from Pans describes the ceneral alarm which prevails, that a legitimist outbreak is at hand. The cause of royalty is gaining ground in many departments, whilst, at Avignon, socialist processions are taking place, with cries of" Vtre Darbes"Vive Blanquiand '"Vive Robespiere We still have our doubts respecting the character ol the threatened outbreak. We deem it far more probable that the agents of the government, or the parties in the National Assembly, circulate these reports for their own political ends. However, the debate on the report will bring the contending par ties to a personal trial of strength ; and it remains to be seen which side the populace will take. It is reported, amongst other things, that the army has been seriously tampered with, which is very probable. In that case, the so-called republic is seriously in danger. Eleven vacancies in the National Assembly, have not yet been filled up, the writs having been stopped by General Cavaigntc, who did not dare to ask the opinion or any of the constituents in ^ France, under the existing circumstances of reaction. It was even said that M. Guizot would be returned for Bordeaux. Gen. Cavaignac has, however, at length promised the Assembly to issue the writs, so that the real state of public opinion will be ascertained; but what must be the state of public liberty in the republic of France, when the dictator interposes to prevent the election of the members of the National Assembly! Another phase of the revolution is at hand. The London Timet of the '26th, says the contest is by no means terminated with the events of June Ere many weeks, or even days, have passed, it is but too probable that it will be bloodily renewed. The government which exists, is, after all, but an expedient, and lives only by delegated authority. It represents the will of the nation lamentably divided, and deeply corrupted; and the forces at the disposal of Cavaignac are all that supply the place of tradition and of established rights, in opposition to the implacable hostility of a minority, deeply imbued with the very spirit of anarchy?deluded, incensed, demoralized, and ruined. In the early part of the week, there was a little uneasiness in regard to France. Much apprehension exists in reference to the probability of another outbreak in Paris, and the occurrences of the week seem to show cause for the anxiety so generally expressed. The soctalist confederacy lias extensive influence amongst the operatives of Paris, Lyons, and all the principal cities of France; and the audacity maintained by Proudhon, Louis Blanc, and others implicated in the former contest, strengthens the presemption that the government are unwilling to proceed against them for fear of the onsequences. The European THme? says all Europe has been amazed at the disclosures which have been made by the publication of the report on the late insurrections. Never in the history of the world has such a mass of folly, crime, secret villany, open violence, infatuation, and reckless daring, been presented to the world. It n quite impossible, from the vast prolixity of the report, which occupies three huge volumes, to give our readers anything like a summary of the contents. We must limit ourselves to describing the effect which the perusal has produced on our minds. The Italian question is yet unsettled. The wanton siege and bombardment of Bologna served to exemplify the old spirit of Austrian despotism; while the patriotism and valor of the citizens, and the manifestations that have taken place in their favor, show that the spirit of resistance has not been quelled by recent reveries. Charles Albert's addresses evince unabated courage and confidence. Tlie intervention of Frnne* >nrt VnoUnii eon. tinues, and rumor goes so far as to ascribe to Austria and the Frankfort Assembly a readiness to be content with the frontier of the Adige, leaving Lombardy to join itself to Piedmont or Switzerland. This may form the basis of a settlement; but only of a temporary one. There cannot be a permanent peace while Austria retains sway over any portion of the Pen:nsula. From the seat of war in Schleswig, there is no decisive news. Correspondence speaks of an armistice and a peace, as about to be concluded by the belligerent powers; but rumor has said the same for many weeks past. [From the London Times, Aug. 29.] The most important portion ot the contents of the Paris papers and correspondence of yesterday, is that which intimates an approaching collision of the government and the legitimists. The ?.Vazettr de France was suspended on Thursday. On the same day, the Bowlie dt Frr, a new legitimist print, was seized. Seals were also jdaeed on its plii.ting office. It was hoped that the impending debate in the Assembly on the report of the Comf >RK ] 1DAY, SEPTEMBER 9, mittee of Inquiry, would end yesterday, withou any serious incident. The bill for reducing the postage on all inlaiu letters to 2d. each, was passed by the Assembly 01 Thursday mailt. The Pope's Nuncio was received by Gen. Ca vuignac on Thursday, as the Pupal Ambassado; to the French Republic. K?j ported Revolution In Russia. Advices from Breelau, Aug. 18, say u revolution has broken out simultaneously at St. Petersburg and at Warsaw Travellers who have arrived here from Russian Poland, unanimously confirm this intelligence. The Iimperor has fled to Cronstadt. A provt sional government has been established at St Petersburg. Further details are as yet not known The Prussian messenger at St. Petersburg has arrived here, with the Vienna mail. The same train has also conveyed a Russian courier who says he will not vouch for the authenti city of this intelligence from our correspondent who in general may be relied upon, although we must confess there are grounds for disquietude, on account of the uncertainty of ull news coming from Russia. The Bretlau Gazette contains tlie same intelligence, but adds that nothing has been heard of the emeutet which were reported to have broken out at Warsaw. That intelligence, therefore, appears to be without foundation. The London Times, of the 26ih ult., doubts the above. The Vienna papers ol the 17th and 18th ult., re ceived this morning, state that the cholera is raging in the interior of the Kmpire, and that the diseust is exceedingly malignant at Riga, where as man) as one hundred are carried oil daily, out of a population of 40,000 to 50,000 inhabitants. It is remarkable that the parents of many of tin patients who have recently died of cholera, wert carried off by the same diBease in 1831 and 1832.

The position of the > Bank of France, with regard to its stock of bullion, still improves?a sura of nearly live millions of f.ancs having been added by the last acoounts. The trade at Havre is still reported to be in an improving state; ^ but the uncertainty of the Issue of political affairs at i *rib diiu luifivuvs tuo uruiusrjr cuursu ui ur?u?. i aere baa been a general suspension of mercantile operation* n the Continent, and, indeed, in England, every body f engaged in the Continental trade, ia looking out ^ anxioualy for the result of the mediations of France ^ | and England in the Italian question. Produce seems to be generally on the rise in Germany. The French 8 funda closed on Wednesday, the Three per Cents at 37f. 70c ; the Five per Cents at 73f. , Trade and commerce in England hare be? n in a very { unsatisfactory position during the last week; the uncertainty whioh prevails respecting the harvest and the t extent of the potato disease,have aotedjnost injuriously on the markets for foreign and colonial pioduoe. Although holders have been anxious to realise, still, from the causes above noted, buyers have manifested s unusual caution in their operations, although tempted by lower prices; sugar and coffee have suffered more, i and buyers are not inclined to pay former terms. Ar, tides for use in manufacturing purposes are in less [ request, and prioes are lower, particularly in cotton , and cochineal. The market for the former has been k quiet here during the week; the sales are to a moderate extent only, and for moBt descriptions prices are a shade lower. ', The Corn trade continues Arm, and prices to advance, f Money is in more demand, but the rate of discount is not higher at present. Prime bills are to 3, and others 3>? to 6 per cent. British securities are steady a and prices now tend upwards. The foreign market is l languid. Thejimport of cotton, since our last, amounts t to about 39.075 bales, of which 35,080 were American.? The demand has been laniruid. but steadv. Holders u I - ? I i bare met the market pretty freely, and in the early I f part of the week lower pricee were accepted for all sort9 ; f of American. Subsequently, a better feeling took I place, and buyers showed more confidence. The mar; ket, therefore, closed with a degree of steadiness, at rates similar to those last quoted. The sales from the 1 18th to the 26th, are estimated at 33,460 bales, of which speculators took 1100. and exporters 0470. The stock of cotton, at Liverpool. Is now 587,880 bales; at the ' same time last year it was 388,850, showing an increase this year of 190,030 bales. At present there are but few prospects of any improvement in the demand, for , as the value of breadstufTs is expected to rule at a high 1 figure, there will be a reduction In the consumption of i manufactured articles for home use. 8hou\d, however, the harvest bear out more favorable than is anticipated' l the grain crops having received no material injury by 1 the late rains and stormy weather, it is not improbable but greater activity will prevail in the manufacturing districts, and the raw material find many buyers at rising prices. Muoh anxiety has been felt in the grain trade, owing to the prevalence of unfavorable weather. The accounts of the spread of the potato disease, al though there are large arrivals from the continental ports into London, still the tendency of prioes has been upwards; and on Monday last, at Mark Lane, wheat rose from Us. to 4s. per quarter; the best English white sold at from &7s. to 60s. per quarter. U. States and Canadian also brought 54s. to 56s. at the same market. Flour was also disposed of on enhanced terms. The value of Canadian was 23s to 26*., and United States, 24s. to 30s. per barrel. Holder" of Indian corn acted firmly, and as there was a fair demand for shipment to Ireland, prices generally were higher; the current rates being 35s. to 38s. per quarter. Indian meal changed hands at 19s. to 16s 6d. per barrel. At Liverpool, on the following day, (Tuesday.) the market was well attendlTd, and for most descriptions of articles brought forward, a good demand prevailed. Wheat rose 4d. to Gd. per bushel American and Canadian white sold at 0s. to its. 4d. per bushel, and red 8s. 4d. to 9s. The price of American flour advanced 2s. to 2s. Gd. per barrel, sellers being able to realise 34s. to 35s. per barrel, for Western canal and Richmond ; 34s. to 35s. for Philadelphia nnd Baltimore ; 33s. to 34s. for New Orleans and Ohio; 84s to 36s. for Canadian. Indian cern supported the advance noted last week. Indian meal sold at 17s. to 18s. per barrel. At the markets held in London on Wednesday, the advance noted above was fully supported. Indeed bonded and floating cargoes of wheat were rather higher. A rise of 4s. to 5s was established at Wakefield yesterday, but other articles were sold at rates similar to last week. Yesterday's Liverpool market was not so active. A moderate business was done in wheat and flour, whilst in Indian corn, hardly any sales were reported. The dsmand for American bacon in London is dull, whilst lard is in request at full rates.

Papers from Naples arrived for London tht morning, to the 13th inst., which informs us tha? the expedition which was to have sailed on thai day, lind been countermanded, in consequence, it in said, of the interference of the English and French ministers. Later udvices reached London this morning, from Havre, by which we learn that the cotton market, of that port, was less active, and prices less buoyant. The reaction is marked by further downward tendency in prices. In other articles of American produce, there is nothing important to report. Ireland* Various conjectures are afloat as to whether Mr. Whiteside will he one of Mr. O'Brien's counsel at the ensuing trial. From all that we can learn there is reason to say that he will. One thing is certain, that learned gentleman has obtained his leisure for the purpose. The Crown claims Mr Jonathan Reetne, (?. C., but he, it is said, obiects inasmuch us he is connected bv relationship with Mr. O'Brien's family. Mr. Meagher has been attack -d by typhus fever He is attended by Dr. Stokes.
