Ktiropcnn News. The Europa and I'nited States may be considered due this afternoon. They will bring one week's later intelligence from all parts of Europe. Politick and Fuji?The New York Custom House. The game of politics in modern times is diversified, occasionally, with interludes that serve todrive away rntiMt, and while away the time that may hang heavily on us. The most recent of those interludes, and certainly not the least funny one that has occurred w ithin a short time past, is the struggle between the houses of York and Lancaster, or Tather, the old hunker and barnburmg portions of the democracy of this goodly city, for the spoils ?f the Custom House. The contest has been sharp and spirited; hut at length, it w ould appear, the | hunkers have got the best of the fight, and the burnburner9 will be compelled to abdicate. From the time when Mr. Van iJuren mounted Ins free soil hobby, for the purj>ose of gratifying his own revenge for being cheated in his nomination by the Baltimore convention, in 1844, the attachtt of the Custom House and Post Office have been deliberating on the propriety of the part j vhich they should take in the present Presidential canvass. Many were inclined to adhere to the regular nominations, w hile others, no doubt under the impression that this free soil movement would control all others, avowed themselves barnburners, and, of course, refused to submit lo be levied upon for the support of the party organs, and other expenses of the hunker or Cass party. This was all >-erv well as long as the rival factions conjoiutly held |>?eeeseion|of the Wigwam, Tammany Hall; but. after a while, the barnburners were ejected from that old-fashioned concern, head and heels, and then the game was changed. Tammany Jlall. having controlled for years and years the operations of the party in this city, insisted, in the usual manner, that all barnburners holding offices in the Custom House and Post Office ought to he dismissed, and their places filled by Cass and Butler men. Mr. Lawrence was accordingly applied to on the subject, bur that amiable gentleman affected to know no. ihing of the quarrels in the party, avowed his entire innocence of the nice distinctions between liunkf r and barnburner, and declined to make any removals at the direction of Tammany Hall. Under this state of things, an application made to Mr. Polk, as the head devil?or great chief of the sachems?for our readers are no doubt aware that his excellency was duly initiated, when he was on a visit to this city?and that distinguished gentleman answered, that any reasonable demand made by the democracy of New \ork,in the usual way, that is, through Tammany Hall, would be most cheerfully complied with. This was the condition of tilings last week, and no sooner was Mr. Polk's answer received than Tammany Hall, and the outside democracy, made preparations to demand, through the usual channel, the dismissal of the incendiary gentleman in the ( ustom House. Accordingly, the " unternfied" assembled in ward meetings, and resolutions appropriate to the matter were proposed, and, of course, passed by acclamation. We give a sample ?f them :? Resolved. Tliat the democracy of this eity and ?ounty may. and do with justice d'-mand. that nil those person*, head* of department*, and subordinate*, holding offlce at pre*ent in the New Vork Custom Hou*e. who ore known to be opposed to the election of La** and Butler and the triumph of the democratic platform declared at Baltimore in the convention of 1*48, should be immediately icmoved. and that the known friends of our candidates and our principles should be appointed to their places. Reaolved. That we call on Corneliui \V. Lawrence. Collector of thi* Port, to remove from the Custom Home the numberless barn burning disunioni't* in hi* employ ; himself appointed to oltlce by the political removal of hi* predecessor, we Jrust he will *ee in that example the propriety of the request, and Ihc justification of the act. This was all very good, and these resolutions having been passed, the sapient sachems of Tammany concluded that it was full time to push the matt) r to the extreme. Accordingly, a meeting was held laslcvening, at which a resolution was passed thai there must be a general and perfect clearance ; ?1 everything in the shape of a barnburner in the isew k i ik Custom House; which resolution, duly signed and sealed, vv ill und ubtly be dispatched to <Mr. jt'olk, m the course of to-day by a s;iecia couw*r' ^nr bamburniiig fraternity, now holding t flice in the Cu*^10 "lay, therefore, set iln-ir hi uses in order, anil prepare t>> receive a JM lite notice tout iuTirwf??ti-i?re no ion mt re wired. j ? 1 This it one of the amusing interludes thai *i>Viiik out of modern fX'litic*. ft if "-aid. however, that Mr I-awrence, the collector, no matter what th? narquemn* may be. will not discharge those barnburners. numbering we believe over hmidri d antl fift\, < r more. What then ! Mr.|l*olk will insist on his doing so. Tammany Hall will insis1 on hie doing h>, and the re?uli will be that Mr. T,awreiice will resign. That w ill be another nice Hinl interesting interlude, which, when it occurs* will no doubt be ae amusing as the other. Dr/*TII or AMCXANOER Mrjniix MiKrs/.ti-This gentleman, while riding on htahorse, yesterday, at Sing >inp. lell in n fit ol apoplexy^ HiatHntly expired. His name, in connection with the tragedy on bonrd the brig Somers, in which young Spene. r was so unceremoniously swung from the yard arm, is familiar to nil. At that time he was a lieutenant in the U. ff. Navv, hot was subsequently appninted to the command of the t'. S steam frigate Mississippi, stationed in tbe Gulf of Mexico.

Look at the course which the Courier $ Enquirer, the Eryretf, and the Mirror, of this city, have bet n, and are still, following. The first named journal, together with the Graj>ethnt, as it is called?an oil-shoot of the same concern?abuses General Cat-s in a most shameful manner, and labors, from day to day, to cast odium upon him, \ as a military man and as Secretary of War. !

One thing, however, is clear,'that General Cass conducted himself, during his military career, as a brave and honorable man?and was the very soul of chivalry itself. A s to the allegations resjiecting his behavior, while Secretary of War?reference to the files of the Courier, published at that time, will show that the editor of that paper never uttered them, or if he did -o, it was to seek an opportunity of denying theni; The Courter of that period abounds with articles laudatory of General Cass; and, although the editor may forget the circumstance, others do not. Such conduct, on the part of a political journal, is sure to produce disgust among its own nnrl innct oorfti 1 nlu Ki> ininrimta tn tlio cause of General Taylor. The Express and Mirror pursue a similarcourseAfter pronouncing one of Gen. Taylor's last letters a forgery, they turn round, eat up their own words, and assert it to be one of the best he ever wrote. This is the way in which General Taylor is suitported, and were he dependent on such papers as these for his election, his inauguration would never take place. Such friends do him more injury than open and avowed enemies. AeRicn.Ti.ral Affairs ?The fair of the New York State Agricultural Society, lately held at llufi'aio, was interesting, not only as an exhibition of specimen products, but as showing the increased and increasing resources of our State and country. The improved stock which was present from Ohio and Canada, gave evidence that the spirit of emulation was abroad, and foreshadowed the fact tha1 we are destined, here in the western world, to excel in this, as in our other home products. The gentlemen who were present to improve their knowledge by mutual intercourse, met, not as mere traffickers, but came together to improve, and be improved, in a correct understanding of the great principles of the noble science to which they are devoted. They conversed understand* mgly while together, and their farms, so many of them as are to be seen in western New fork, give evidence that they not only talk, but work, scientifically. Broad^fields, tilled by aid of mo. dernly improved implements, afford an ample reward for increased care in cultivation. Early crops, and large ones, are already stored in many of their granaries, and the prospect of large profits makes a host of happy countenances. The present has been a propitious season. All along the Hudson, Mohawk, and Genesee rivers, the farmers are, at this early day, cutting their Indian corn, while their orchard trees ore borne down with rich fiuits. These are unmistakeable signs of a general and plentiful crop. We are. and ought to be, an agricultural people. With every variety of climate and soil, we can produce in abundance crops of all the staple products of the soil, and with such merchandise to exchange, we can always procure the best fabrics of foreign manufactures. The accounts thus far received, from all parts of the country, are of the most Haltering character, and we have reason to congratulate ourselves on one more season of general plenitude. John Van I3i ken anh Mike Walsh.?John Van Buren has left the city, on a free boiI expedition to the State of Pennsylvania, where he expects to draw off a sufficiency of votes from the democratic party, so aB to give that State to General Taylor. This is undoubtedly John's object, but whether he will succeed in his views is another matter. Some one recommends that Mike Walsh?who is as much celebrated as an old hunker as John Van Buren is as a barnburner?be despatched after | John, to the same State, for the purpose of follow- j ing in Ins wake, and winning back all the votes | that John's eloquence may withdraw from Gene- | ral Cass. This is a capital idea. If John Van i Buren is a good stump orator, so is Mike Walsh. They might, too, come across each other one of j those days, and then would come the tug of war. , Tim Niauaka, Captain Kyrie, sailed yesterday 1 morning, at hall-past twelve o'clock, for Halifax and j Liverpool. .she has sixty-five passengers for Liverpool, and only $959 in specie. Ci Ntr.Ai. Wobtii at Svrac vse.?General Worth i arrived at Syracuse on Tuesday. As soon as it was known thut lie was in the city of salt, the mayor waited on him, and, after proffering him the hospitalities of the city, made arrangements to give the general a dinner, and do the usual honors of such occasions. A parlor having been provided at the Syracuse House, the form of introductions was gone through with, and the good citizens of Syracuse had the pleasure of shaking the veteran hero by the hand. After the mayor had ullroduced an uncounted number of persons, dinner was announced, and a large company sat down to a hastily got up, but sumptuous repast. The eatables were soon disposed of, and then followed champagne and toasts. The afluir was, on the whole, perhaps as pleasant as though the mayor and corporation had been a week preparing lor it. All were happy lor the time, and lose iituii the table at a reasonable hour, all the b' iter lor their Fhort entertainment. Political Intelligence. MICHIGAN.

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE* Summary or the Latest News. Our telegraphic intelligence is of cousiderable politicA I importance. Much depends on the results of the election in Maine, and of the labors of the several State conventions now in session. We ehall soon be able to obtain a clear view of the coming contest. Things are rapidly shapiag thenuelves over the Union. We must see what the free soilers in Pennsylvania do. If they distract the democratic party in that State, Taylor will carry it. That State ib worth something in electoral college, as well as in its coal beds and iron mines. It counts up, and will warm the wings as much as a fire, wheu made of its best Lehigh. We cannot too soon begin to count noses, and make a calculation on the prospects of the panics in the field. We don't like to be in a fog too long in political matters; it is worse than having a mail steamer in one. New lork Free Boll State Convention. fikst despatch. Utica, Sept. 13?10 A.M. The Barnburners' Convention commenced its session to-day, and is attended by a respectable number of delegates. Mr. C. B. Talcott presided as chuirman, temporarily. The nomination of John A. Dix, for Governor, is opposed, on account of his vote in the Senate, a year since, against the Irish Appropriation bill. Mr. J. G. Gardner, it is understood, hue posi" tively declined the nomination. The Hon. Preston King and Hon. Wm. C. Crain, are apparently the only competitive can. didates. Probably Crain will be nominated.

Utica, Sept. 13?ti P.M. The organization of the Convention was completed by the appointment of Allen McDonald, of Queen's county, as Chairman, after which A Committee was appointed to prepare an address and resolutions. A delegate rose and said?" The liberty party has held a State Convention, und adopted some resolutions, which- it is desirable should be submitted to the consideration of this Convention. A committee from the Liberty Convention then appeared, and,by their chairman, presented the resolutions alluded to, the first of which pledges the vote of the Liberty Party to the nominations made at Buffalo ; the second declares it unjust to judge of men who are now standing on the anti-slavery platfoim by the position in past times; that to do so, would be to condemn every reformer from St. raui to Martin turner, trom Martin Luther to John P. Hale (!) ; the third compliments Mr. Hale on account of his declining the nomination for the Presidency (by the Buffalo Convention) in favor of Martin Van Buren, and also for his general cours* in the United States Senate, "esjiecially < n the great question in dispute?slavery.

Memphis, Tenn., Sept. 13, 1RI8. General Taylor complains that he is charged with occupying an equivocal attitude towards various parties, and especially towards the wings. He says that this results from partial extrncts froin his letters being published us though they were positive fabrications: he says that he did not declare . his opinions while in Mexico, fearing to alienate his soldiers. When he accepted the nomination to run for the Presidency, he believed that he was accepting the general call of the people. lie compliments Millard Fillmore, as worthy the first place on the ticket. "The National Convention adopted me," he says, " as a candidate, as it found me?a decided whig ; but not an ultra one in my opinions. I would be without excuse, if I were to shift the relation 1_' 1_ il i mi 1 ... >mii which uieii exisieo. iney iook me witli tlie declaration of principles I had made to the world. I would be without defence, if I did any thing to impair the force oi that declaration. I have said that I would accept the nomination from the demo, crutic party; but in so doing, would not abate one jot or tittle of my opinions previously written down. Such a nomination, as indicating no concordance of opinion on the part of those making it, should not be regarded with disfavor; and, as a persona' compliment to myself, it should not be expected that I would repulse them without insult. I shall not modify views to entice them to my side. I shall not reject their aid when they join my friends vol" untarily. 1 have said that I was not a party candidate; nor am I, in that straitened and sectarian sense which would prevent my being the President of the whole people in case of my election. I did not regurd myself as one before the convention met, and that body did not seek to make mc different from what I was then ?nor, did they fetter mc down to a series of pledges which were to be an iron rule, in all, and i in spite of all contingencies, that might urise during the Presidential term. I am not engaged to lay violent hands indiscriminately upon public fficers who may differ in opinion from me.

" This is what I mean by not being a party candidate. 1 wquld not be a partizan President, and should not be a party candidate in the sense thnt wou'd make one. This is the sum and substunce of my meaning, and tins is the purport of the facts and circumstances attending my nomination, when considered in their connexion and dependence on one another. 1 refer all persons, who are anxious for information, to this statement, for a proper understanding of my position towards the Presidency and the people. On taking leave of the subject, 1 have only to add, that my two letters to you, embrace all the topics I design to speak of, pending this canvass. It I am elected, 1 shall do all an honest zeal may elfect, towards cementing the bonds of our holy Union, and to establish the happiness and prosperity of my countrymen upon an enduring basis.

At St. Kits it lasted five hours, w ith three shocks of an earthquake, during winch the barometer fell to 29.6. Thiougliout the whole <>t the Island the most of the buildings are thrown down, and the sugar cane completely, prostrated. The loss of life is very great. The schooner Mary foundered, with all on braid, and a vessel nt St. Maitins was lost. hid ten cf her crow perished. A number of persons have also born killed by the falling buildings. The le gislature has been called together. From Antigua the urconnts are interesting. The English bnrbor and Fulmonth are nearly overthrown* Pretty much all the plantations on the island are injured; eleven persons have been killed by the fulling buildings, and five churches thrown down. The damage in greater than that caused by the hurricane of IV37, or the earthquake of 18-13, and t is feared that worse accounts are yet to come. Meeting of the American lionrd of Commissioners for foreign Allusions. Porron, Sept. 13, 134R At the meeting of the American Hoard to-day, the Jlrv. Mr. Treat made a special report in relation to sluvery among the Cherokee ami Choctaw Indians, uud in reference to the missions to the said nations. It appears that the Cherokeesown 700 slaves, and the Choctaws 2,ti00. The missionaries of these natrons have written letters to the Loaid, defending their course of nentiahty in relation to slavery. These letters were answered by members of the board in attendance at the Missionary Uooms, dissenting from the principles stated iu the letters of the iiurbionariea. 1 hey regarded slavery as a srreat oil. They aun.t'.td that there was a distinction betwet 11 slavery and i-lavcboliing. The first was ts always a sin, while in some cases, perhaps, the .latter was not. If the time had not come to hold up the evils of slaveiy, when will it come? di Slaveiy lay directly across the missionary path, and must be met. Missionaries were instructed 83 to pursue such a course as would tree the Choctaw sl1 chuiches of slaveiy The practice of hiring slaves 2-1 lor mission work was no longer to be tolerated. bi The board was not willing to be a party to such u practice. bi On motion of Chancellor Walworth, the letters of the missionaries, and the reply, were referred to * aselect committee, consisting of five, viz , Messrs- c? B< man, Barnes, J)e Witt, lluwes, Magee, Judge ^ Darling, aud Henry White. 6) The appeal of Dr. Pnxton was referred to a com- Pj nuttee, consisting of Messrs. S. T.
