They could not draw outone-flfth of the free foil party, and hence the result at the Governor's election would be doing great injustice to our cause. Dr Ki.dkr took the same ground. The doctrine of free soil was all he wanted The Governor's election bad nothing to do with it. Let us keep clear of ?li office-seeking suspicion Kor myself, if the principle succeeds to day, 1 care not if the free soil party is disbanded to morrow.

Dr. (iizzam replied witli great energy in favor of a free soil candidate for Governor and Canal Commissioner. lie felt confident it would gain the State for Van Huron in the Presidential election. Mr. Smith, of Philadelphia, replied. He wou.d-vote for no man in the State canvass opposed to free soil; but there whs no time now lor a free soil organization; and it would be destruction to the cause to adopt a-l'ree aoil State ticket. We should awake suspicion. and lose many good friends in the ('residential contest A seem- of great confusion followed. It was getting dark, ana there was no preparation made to light the hall.

[In the interval, the convention tooksupper, and attended the people's meeting, and the speeches of Mr. Vsn buren end Dr. F.lder. at the market house, of which an account follows this report ] MOBT .HEUTING OK THE CONVENTION. 'Ilie cor vent ion re- assembled in Odd Fellows Ilall. at half pest ten, P. M. Mr. Deckert, of Kiading, in the chair. Ihe following are the resolutions adopted as the platform cf the convention, in the afternoon. Resolved, That this Convention approves and adepts the platform of prtn iples adopted by the National Convention of tho Friends ot I reedom, lielJ at Buffalo, tlie lith and 10th oi August, ik. Ke-clvi , 7hnt we cordially endorte andnccept the nomination ef Martin V.n Burcn. for Rjesident, and Cnarles Francis Adams, lor Vice President of the United States. Feaolved, That in demanding the preservation of freedom in New Hcxk o uud California, by act of Concrete. we present an issue v.hiuh is not sectional. but national. We aliirm principles which aic li t new, but saietioned by onr most dib'inguhuicd tatesmen, and by action of our government since its formation, i r.d tl.at we regard a continuance in this line of policy and prin?lple, e.s dctratded alike by the spiiit of the age, by the obligations of humanity. and by the honor of our common conntry. Resolved. That in demanding the appropriation of the public lands to actualscttlcra, and to actual settlers only, we adopts p< liey which is enleulated not only to afford u home of eomlort to the lahoter. l et diminish the competition of labor in the old miatuuatf reform, when in power. h?s enUt'ea himself to the tei fierce o( ireiy workine men. I?r. Gaz/am's resolution, proposing a free soil candidate for Gov? rnor and < anal Commissioner, came up. as the order cf the night On m< tion.it was ri-solred that the speaking on each side of the question heliojiu d to fifteen minutes, alternately. After sue rather personal conversation between the parties, on the freedom of speech. i)r Gazzam proceeded to his first fifteen minutes, in support ot State candidates. In view oftbe triumphant effect it must have on the Presidential election. Mr. Wr.nn, of Tioga, spoke in reply Such sn organization would defeat David Wllmot for Congress, by dividing his friends. Let us leave the State canvass as it is. red we can give2,0u0 votes. In Tioga, for Van Buren and Adams, and 800 majority for Vilmot. We want to eject him and we can elect him. if you will let us alonr. The{gr< at strength oftbe free soli party is in the Ncrth. and let us do nothing to weaken our oai>e Mr DoroHKBTT, of Huntingdon, answered on the other side. He argued for a full State ticket, and was opposed to any covert alliances with the eBemy on either side. He wanted no guerrilla warfare, but a bold, manly, open light. He argued that the balance of power in the Governor wielded by the free soil men. would draw over the weaker of the two great parties to the support of Van Buren in the Presidential el? etlon. [(Question. (Question] Mr. Kiev, of Daupliin. said that it would be necel- | wary to declare a State platform, before nominating State officers, as the great Union platform of free soil bad no direct connection with the State election ; and as for members of Congress we can challenge them to our fuj port, and they wilt or gtaa to accept 01 our term* Mr. Jici. of Pittsburg, was for a fair open fight. If you elect I.ongstreth y?n elect Care, and we cau defeat Longstreth ill you defeat Longstreth, you rally a force that will carry the State for Van Huren. If you elect Caen, what will become of lurid Wilmot, earn if he ia elected ' Father Kitehie will eat him up. If Wilmot had bad the right sort of spirit, he might hate been now the very first man in the State, but be bangs on to the old hunkers. If Cass is elected. Pother Kitehie will say that Wilmot has been a fool, while, if he lind only the courage of John Van Uuren to be independent, and toerme out and deiy the old bankers be might defeat Cass and make the whole South and father Ritchie tremble again. As for tie n. Taylor, he was out of the question. They might say he would sign the provi?o. but he, es Dr. V.lder says, is pad-locked and lork-jawod. and.asjlong as be has VHO woolly beads working witbout ~wsges.be is not the Lasn lot free soil and free labor. (Great cheering ) Mr. Co*'.slices:, of Bucks, was convinced that State ! candidates would give strength to the cause. It was rijbt in principle, and what was right in principle could not be wrong In practice. Mr Wish, ot Tioga maintained that State candidates wc uid to divide tue free toilers in his district at to defeat David Wilmot. and that his election was a matter n? *t in importance to the Presidential election itielf Mr. Jotvs (,1 Montgomery, appealed for barmany in the convention whatever they might resolve to do. Mr K**r. of Philadelphia askrd for the reading of a letter In the possession o! one of the delegates from David Wilmot. Mr. RHours, of Columbia, read an extract of a let- i ter fr< m Mr. Wilmot regretting t'at he enutd nor at- | tend the convention, and suggesting that State uomi- I nations, on the free soil question, would throw gut- i tcion and distrust on the cause Dr. Uamam protested that the whole of thi* oppnsi- 1 tion to candidate* for Governor and Canal ( nmini*- ' aiot >r. >ti attributable to Pavid tVilwot li? bad bteu writing just such letter* all over the State. He gave a history of the free toil movement in I'ennsylvania showing how backward Mr. Wilmot had been in furthering >he rente and that hence hie recotnmendati< re were rotel much real importance. fir Kt? km*. thought that enough bad been eaid on the mbjeet. mid tlml harmony in the convention, wae the petal object if we desire success Mr Jacaion of I'lttsburgh wa* not satisfied with the sorry expedient of challenging the candidate* of ?or opponent* on either aide lie wanted a clean free eoii ticket for the State election, and Was not afraid of the lesolt Mr. Timmi, of Philadelphia, argued that it wa* too late for State n< minatton* .Nothing could he done and every thing depended upon starting right Mr Mikobut, of Karton, thought there wa* ton much cowardice in thi* matter, and that it would be better to ehow something of the glorious spirit of the barobur ii're of New Verk.

The question wo* taken by one vote from each district represented, and resulted. ayes noe* 11. So the eouvention resolved not to nominate free loll candidate* for Governor and Canal Commissioner. Dr tiar.ran. in an eTitbu*ia*tie speech, endor*ad the action of the convention, and was received with the mo*t earnest applsvse and cheering. Mr. DovoHtaTY alio gave in his cordial adherlon, and was loudly cheered Mr. Jack proposed that the Fpeech of John Van Buren. at the market house, and the proceeding! of the convention, be pTinted in German for the benefit of the German* of Berks and other counties. (Three cheers.) Dr. Ssodcusi, of Maryland, gave in his oordlal thank* to the convention for their wine decision, and expressed his high gratification at their proceeding*. After the usual resolutions of thank* to the people of the city, h) the officers of the meeting, be., there were Three cheers for Free Soli, Three cheers for the Hutfalo Nominees, Three cheers for John Van lluren. Three cheers for Pr.

(trea horse ! ha' ha' ha.'J and that if anyhody should se<j a man riding such a b ark horse, just stop him. And th? convention, at half-past one o'clock in the morning adjourned. _ _ Clay-Whig Heeling In JcrpM-yt lty?(/lay and hillinoie Kumliitvtoii, in pursuance cf an invitation to the democratic Clay-whips of Jersey city to assemble, last evening, in Washington Hall, for the purpose of " sus talning true whig principles, and nominating candidate* of the people, in opposition to the dictation of military availI ability, and the nominations of a packe d convention ?1 office-holders and office-seekers." a vei.'y large number of the aforesaid democratic t'ley-whigs met together in that place. After getting through the usual pre'dminariea, the meeting was called to order by Mr Wakeiuan, who afterwards moved that a committee of live be appoiutcU to draft resolutions, which was done acnordiugly. Willis Hall, Esq , of New \ urk. ww called upon, and. after explaining the object* of thu meeting, said ?!,.? V... ......... It- WL./.IU...I In the causa of Henry Clay. He would s ty, in all calmness, that our government iui-titctions are dear to all and no-one would stab it in a vital part. We are the first nation that baa proved the practicability of selfgovernment In ae extended natica. We have taught the world that popular liberty may be ad ipted by all rountrfes. It b. ? eaorod trust committed to us, which we must transmit to those that will come after us. It is a principle ol' popular government that candidate! f-hall give their views on public questions. Suoh was the practice in Home, where candidate gave their viewt orally on the matters pertaining to their offices. The practise exists even in England, v-here candidates art generally cati ehised on the general scope and intent of tlxrfr principles, and where every candidate bat I)'en identified with ore party-or another. It'has beet the practice in the United Sta'es. too. from Washington down to Polk, and no candidate more fully expressed his views on public questions than Mr. Madison, it was not. however, necessary for Washington to b? catechiied in this inauDer. for his acts were the best criterion of his views. Mr Hall then showed the necessity of tucha practice in popular governments; for the people do no; vote directly for principles, but for men who will carry out their principles. If the principles cf the candidate do not ooincido with those of the ]>eople. they vote for a ma n who will n< t carry out tli -ir principles. If a man's principles are not known, what difference is there between voting for such a one, or a king? None. To do so would be to do an act which would strike at the main pillar of popular government. Yet the whips are called upon in this election to do so. They are asked to vote for General Taylor, who, although be euys he is c whig, says also, ho will not be the exponent of whig principles. It is utterly immaterial. therefore, whether lie saya be is a whig or not, if he will not carry out whig principles Ho says in eflect, the whole country must come tc him, and not he to the country. Is this the way for a servant of the people to act .' Now what has been the example of Henry (.'ley (great cheering) on this point. From the commencement of hit political life to the present hour Henry Clay's sentiments have been known, and 1 nothing woull have been more mortifying to him than to know that a mau voted for him without knowing his policy and views. At this paint, there was a scene of great confusion, which laett ilfcr some time, and which our reporter will attempt a description of? Man at the Boor?What do you mean to say, sir? (Addressing Mr. Hall) * (Cries of ' Order' order1.'- "Put him out!" "Out with bim!" "No; bear him," "Hear him?let him speak.") Mr. Wakf.man?Js there any officer here! If there is. I hope he will take care of that mau. Mar?1 say, Air. Speaker?("Hustle him out!" "Out witbhim.'") Man?Gentlemen. I want to know?(-'Bah! bah!" "Put bim out."-) The President?Sir. if you are a disorgauUer, you had better retire, if you came here to? Man?1 say. sir. i< is not so; and?("Put him out!"

"l'ut him out?he is a locofoeo!" "Out with him!" "Weil, why don't you say what you have got to say?" "Put him out!"? by a hundred voices.) Here one of the managers of the meeting rose, and proposed that the man have liberty to speak. He cannot interfere with the prospects of Henry Clay. (Cheers ) It Is the boast of Ctay men, that they let every man be hoard. (Cries of - Order, order," for the speech ) Man?Gentlemen, I am from the State of South Carolina, and?(Laughter and htsaee, on the renewed cries of "l'ut him out!'-) Sir, 1 wish to ask a question; hut you want to put me down, God d?n you! (Tremendous uproar ) You can't do it. ("Put him out'-' -Put him out!-') Man?Gentlemen. 1 wish to speak. (Out with him ! And an attempt was made to eject him, which caused a great scuttle, which interrupted the proceedings for several minutes ! IJurine the interim, the friends of Henry Clay gave three hearty cheers for him. re ace and order were finally restored. And Mr Hai l continued?(ientlemen, I have said that Mr. Clay has on every measure expressed his scutimeats; and 1 will go further, and say that It is because he has been so frank, that he was not nominated. Will you, therefore, uproot tlio principle that has been [watered with his life-blood ? (No.) How. therefore, can yon vote for Oeneral Taylor, who will not avow his views on the great measures that agitate the country ? This is a sufficient reason why we should not vote for (ieneral Taylor, but there is another, (ieneral Taylor Is opposed to the doctrine of non-extension of slavery. From all the evidence we ran And, (ieneral Taylor is opposed to the doctrine of free soil. That Is a doctrine of great importanceone which is instant and pressing, and must be disposed of by the next administration forever. If therefore. the people are opposed to the extension of slavery, now Is the time for them to act. It is of no ordinary importance, and involves a great change in the character of our government, (ieneral Taylor has been born and brought up in a slave State, he is himself a large slaveholder, and is interested in preserving the value of slave property, and his neighbors, I who oppose the Wilmot proviso, tell yon that he is opposed to free soil. At the North you hear he is a i free soil man. and here we nave too many doughfaces, who say be will carry out the policy of free soil. Ihcy believe, however, without evidence. Hire there was a regular fight at the door between some Taylor and Clay men, in which the man from South Carolina figured very conspicuously. The confusion lasted for some time, and a great number of screams, cheers, and defiances were freely excoanged. DMr. IIall?Fellowciticens. listen to me for another moment. 1 say the evidence ie sufficient to show that General Taylor ia opposed to free soil. The people of Charleston say they know he ia with them, and be accepte their nomination, (rat him ont?out with him) It ia a question bo great aa to ewallow all othera, and be?

The Maine election, the Free Soil &tat | Convention, in Reading, Pennsylvania; the Fre ; Soil Convention, to be held to-day, in New Jersej the several conventions and nominations in till j State; the great Clay meeting in Albany, and th continued agitation ol the Clay feeling?are a matters of greater or less importance, bearing o the result of the present canvass. Let us take their ! in their order, and dissect them. The Free Soil Convention, in Rending, an ac , count ol which will be found in this day's papei j with seine of the speeches delivered, and th j general impressions gathered there, is one ol th most important assemblages of the kind, that ha ! taken place since the first movement was made l New York. According to die most reliable at counts from that quarter,a vigorous tree soil move ment has been commenced in Pennsylvania, and although they have declared in favor of th regular democratic ticket a separate and indt pendent electoral ticket has been nominated ; an it is supposed, thut lorty or fifty thousand vote [ will be given lor that ticket in November nexl This number, however, may be somewhat ovei rated by the enthusiasm of the free Boilers c Pennsylvania, instigated by thut great genius | John Van lluren. If we put the estimate down t

1 fifteen or twenty thousand votes, and, accordin, I to all appearances, they may take thut nuin ber for their electoral ticket, the result u November nejet cannot be mistaken. The clretc i al rote of Ptnntylvantm trill, m tuck can be tin tun for Ucntrul Tut/lor i?u lead of Genera Can. The appearance of affairs in that qual ter certainly favor such an expectation, as th Reading Convention held out. The electors vote of Pennsylvania, secured for Genera Taylor, will have a prodigious influence over th wliics, and the independents of all partie thrtuphout the country. A t-hort lime will tlirov more I'ght on this question, and particularly th State el? cticn, which will take place in the nuddl cl < 'ctober. The next movement of importance that w l ave teen take place, is the continuation of tli er.thuicaMic ( lay meetings in thin State. W ba\e already given an account of a Clay rnectm in All any, and have oht-etved that similar asHerr blip's are called lor in other parts of this Stab at w?l, is ii. Ntw J?rs?y. How tar this leelin will 11 tend among the whig muskeg it is cJifficn to duel mine. Some believe that thia rnovemer vi lijeiate rnly nyairiH Mr. Van lluren in thi Mate, by v ill.holding votes In m him, and givtn tl? m to M r. ( lay, w Inch the free sod ticket migl (iheiwue late pceivcd. If it were possible fi tl e Clay n.< n, in this Mate, to divide equally tli wI ig patty, the coofequencc would be, that th electoral vote ol New Yotk would he cast for M \ i n Iluren ; hut this is a result which canni lean nubly be expected, under present ctrcuti rliKir, or by the agencies now in act 01 The ( ley men appear to give their supjiort to th whig f tate tit kel, in order to preserve the intcj lily if tit paity, while they are determined I j* ha tr s separate tletSnral ticket for themselves, in a ? nler to *>how tbc strength of Mr. Clay. The tree " soil movement in Pennsylvania, which ia princi- 1 pally composed or democrat?, and, therefore, will j- he an abstraction from (veneral Cass, will pursue ^ the same policy ol preserving their State organiza- 1 as tion lor future purposes. There is some direction ] end judgment, therefore, in this semi and demi- ( ,y, semi movement. -B* lty lurlher returns, recently received from he Maine, the free soil movement, we learn, does not le. appear to have risen to the same head in that <iuarter as it did in Vermont, or in this State, or it as it mny in other States ot New England. Much, therefore, growing out ol calculations of this new Q- ? IV lilt III 1U II1C flfCllUII, Will Ul^TBU uu 1UIUIC >n- elections and coining contingencies. Thus for, ty. the principal element, favorable to the election of General Taylor, has sprung from the vigorous free "a soil movements started by Mr. Van Buren and his *n enthusiastic associates. If General Taylor get the vote of Pennsylvania, of New York, of Ohio, and rnt of several of the New England States, such a re?" suit would be principally carried by the vigorous ni- agitation of the free soil movement. The revenge of Mr. Van Buren will,therefore, he satisfied by the ct- election of General Taylor. The only opposing element to this result, is the movement in favor nl. of Mr. Clay, recently started in this city, carried on out in Albany, and probably to be agitated as much as possible elsewhere in this and other nd States. We doubt, however, whether the votes 1?' that may be given to the Clay electoral ticket, rtll may not be a great abstraction of those who had (he predetermined to vote for Mr. Van Baren, and, ar. therefore, may affect the general issue connected ?r, Willi fti* nrncnpptk itl ( lunorn 1 TouIap There is one important development made by all )c- those recent meetings of all parties in this and the ? neighboring States in the North. Every purty and ) faction declares itself opjaised to the extension of slavery to the new territories. Whigs, barntat burners, Clay-men, and even the Cass Convention held at Syracuse, take the same ground, the last mentioned solemnly resolving that they are as ? much opposed to the extension of slavery as any lis- other party. All parties, therefore, in the North appear to be assuming the same ground in this conA+ test?viz., hostility to the extension of slavery in Caiilornia and New Mexico. If, under any ciriD" cumstances, Mr. Vun Buren could get the vote of New York, and be thrown into the House of Re. KB. presentatives, we do not think that there would be N'a any election of President at all, that no party i would give up its candidate, and the probability -' ? would be that or General Butler would devolve the occupancy of the|White llouse. In another contest Mr. Van Buren and the free soilers would renew the question, and the result, thereafter, may be better imagined than expressed, as far as the TJmon of this happy country is concerned. Under fA. such circumstances, and in the present state of 1 the country, there is nothing that can postpone 1 such a contest but the election of General Taylor? t_ whose general principles, honest avowals, and _ | freedom from mere partizanship, would settle this ~~ i mportunt question during his Presidency, as L General Jackson settled the nullification affair I during his first four years. Let the South and the iei North think of this "I The Free Soil Movement?This movement, ice which was started by Mr. Van Buren and his supa4 ; porters, seems to be getting on famously in the i free States. Vermont told well; Maine-by the ' recent returns has not made so great a triumph, T but peihaps that State will do better by November next. Free soil conventions every where appear to be getting up with a good deal of enthusiasm, e" | and what is more surprising, the one just held in j Reading, Pennsylvania, appears toj have acconive plished a great deal in a little time, and over a wide he space. es j This Van Buren movement is certainly a new I thing in the history of politics in this country; al- ' | ready it is said that twenty-five liberty papers have ] ,l- gone over to the support of the Buffalo nominations ' The national reformers, who nominated Gerrit i es [ Smith, aie looking in the same direction. All the ' ultras, and odd feuds of all jairties, the people of a I one idea, appear to be gathering together for the < 8' ! purpose of suppoitingMr. Van Buren. Wearebe- j 0 ginning to be veiy much of the opinion of Mr. i e~ Calhoun, as he expressed it in his recent s|>eech in j ! -Charleston, that, whatever may be the result of the i presentPiesidential election, the next one will pre- 1 c" sent a tearful contest, and may bring on a crisis i 1 that may cause the secession of the Southern dele- 1 0 gates from Congress. If General Cass be elected t as in the present contest, the movement of Mr. Van 1 118 Buren will still go forward, and if his party cam ? t0 in four years, combine the free States in his favor, i te and he be elected President, there will be an end 1 lc of the union of those States. This consideration should enter into the calculations of the statesmen [ > and politicians of the South. The election of c 'c General Taylor, with the circumstances surround- t e Jng him, the pi inciples that would govern him, and t e the jntttiRt which he would carry with him into the ? f' White House, would be more potent in placing a ? 18 check on the progress of tke Van Buren move- I* ej ment in the North, than any other political event * that could take place. Let the South think of this, r n ' Political Fishing?Lawyers for Bait.?The 8 Old Hunker Convention, which was held at Syrar cure recently, nominated on their ticket for Lieu. 8 p tenant Governor, Charles O'Conor, one of the ^ leaders cf the Iritli Directory here, and one of the orators who endeavored to produce the impression that Ireland was ready for revolution, if large ? I Bums oi money could be collected here and sent to * the other side. g The nomination ol Mr. O'Conor, who is a very n g clever lawyer, but not bo eminent as a patriot, was *j' made by the hunkers merely for the purjK>se of n J catching the Irish votes. They put him on their J g hook, as a fisherman does a sprat, and think that ? t the Irish will be caught to vote the hunker ticket* a .? The barnburners, it seems, have attempted the ? tf same business, and also fished in the troubled wa- ^ , lers for the Irish vote. Hobert Emmett, another ^ 0 prominent member of the Irish Directory, a direc- I' g tory which still has on hand over thirty thousand J dollars of funds, which they don't know what to do A n with?they put him on their electoral ticket, and ^ they will endeavor to bob for Irish votes, next No, vember, throughout this region. e. ' If there are any other parties, or factions, which e !' want to fish for Irish voles, we have a few more of a the same sort of credentials left. There is Mr ti j Mooney, and Horace (Jreeley, and three or four It 1 more, who were all busy during the Irish excite- tt e msnt in ihiscity,and who would make cnpitalhait b for the poor, deluded Irish. The calculation, too, n v is good. If you can pick the pockets of excitable, t) ^ but honest people?as the Irish citizens are?of d thirty-fix c thousand dollars, it surely would be easy *j to get their votes too. t Political AsrsK.?The way in which the ? ^ Courier nuil Enquirer walks into the character P if miu ir|iuianvii ui euiiic ui hick uiu ubouuihirn 111 j, i the <'l?y movement, is a caution to respectable b blackganrds, and makes Wall street journalism a J1 rival to Five Point eloquence. Willis Hall, Joseph ? L. White and Dudley Leiden are treated, by their |j quondam organ,us if tliey were the most selfish be. ings in Christendom. The idea of setting forth hat Mr. White would make a s|>eorh on any side ? for one hundred dollars, and that Willis Ilall n'r t Dudley Felden would support noy candidate, for ' honor and emolument, is not very creditable to the 1 character ol whig politicians. We are much afraid J however,{that such nbuse and personality, intro- c duced into the Presidential contest, will injure the j cause which it is intendrd to serve. The Courier 1 ought to know something of cortuption and venal" ' ity, tor if has been steeped in the same venality up \ to the chin, ever since its somerset on the United 1 ? Mutep Punk question. The secrets of the prison j ' house are now coming oat. TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. Meeting of (be American Board of t'ommlskloaera for Foreign Allaaloim. Boston, Kept. 15. 1848 The American Board is still in session. This morning the committee to whom was referred Mr.Treat's Be portion Slavery in the Choctaw an J Cherokee Indian nation*, made a report approving of Mr. Treat'* letter, and recommending that it be widely circulated. The committee did not feel called upon to give an opinion on points rf open controversy, but thought that the subject might be safely left with the Secretaries of the Board. The adoption of this report was opposed by President Blanchard, who desired the opinion of the Board en the question of slavery in these churches. The debate still continues, but the report will probably be adopted. Free Soli Meeting In PlilladelpHln. Philadelphia. Sept 16, 1848.

Reading sold at lfi?ic. Theatrical and JUuulcul. Park Theatre.?The entertainments at this favorite old theatre are of the Hrst order, and got up in superior style. The tragedy of "Coriolanus" was repeated laft night to the delight of all prosent. Mr, llamblin, in the character of Coriolanus, was most cordially received. The personation was excellent,and, throughout, marked with all the firmness of the ancient Roman soldier, and, iu his refusal to sucoumb to the wishes of the mob, displays an independence worthy of the soldier. Mrs. Winstanley, us Volumnla. mother cf Coriolanus. was, indeed, a meat magnificent character, and sustained in the able style of that popular actress. The partofSullus Anfldious was sustained with good effect by Mr. Hield. The audience was again delighted with the beautiful dancing o! Signora Ciocca and Slgnor Neri, who always fill with delight every one who beholds them. The farce of the "Fton Bey'' was also repeated, in which Miss Hose Telbin most beautifully sustained the parts of Tom and Fanny Curry. This evening, Mr. liambliu appears in the character of Holla, in the celebrated tragedy of''PiEar ," one of his favorite characters, and one in which he stands most popular. The attractions at the Park are many, and all who visit that favorite old temple of the drama, express the favor which they hold for the classic performances. Bowery Theatre.?Mrs. Jordan's benefit last evening was very well attended, and we were glad to see it, as Mrs. J. is a most excellent actress, and her performances are always judicious and correct. The drama of the "Uobber's Wife.,' was the fir. t piece; Mrs J ordan faking the part ot itose Hediand. The story of the piece is a most exciting one, turning on the efforts of [lose, the robber's wife, to rave her father from the bands of the gang of desperadoes headed by her husband. J. 11. Hall performed the port of the robber in excellent style ; und Winans really astonished us by the admirable manner in which he assumed the lii;h brogue, and acted the part of Larry O'Gig. Jordan as Sawney M'Fill. aud Hose as old I'enfuddle, the ittorney. whom Larry keeps in such a horrid state of Apprehension, were both capital. The piece was much ip; lauded, and went off with spirit. The farce of the 'VouBgScamp' aud the grandspectacleof the-'Destruo.ion ot the Bastile," concluded the evening'sentertainnents. The Bowery goes ahead in Ann style; night ifter night it is crowded by mo?t respectable audiences, ind so it will, doubtless, continue all the time, as the nanagtr intends keeping up a continued series of lovrllies. To-night the beautiful spectacle of the "Deitruction of the Bastile." will be repeated, along with' he farce of the "Young Scamp," and "Jenny Lind.' weare giau to Dear that MissTaylor is recovering from ur lato indisposition, and will in all probability be ible to appear again on Monday next. This is good lews. as tne audience* at the liowery cannot afford to ore the charming Mi*s Taylor, for any length of time Hroadway Theatre.?We confe** that we were net irepared for *nch an extraordinary diepiay of genius, .* we witnessed last night, in Mr. Forrest's personitint ion of Richelieu. We caiue away impressed with he conviction that Mr Forrest i*. without exception be greatest of living actors. The whole company eemed alio inspired by hi* presence, and each one exelled in his part. Miss Wallack, Mr. ilyott, Mr. Ltser, young liaker, deserve especial commendation, lever was so great an aotor better supported than Mr. orrest last evening. '-Richelieu-' 1b a grand drama; uch a play required such an actor, and suoh an aotor squired such a play. Nim.o'i, Astor PrACE.?A grand extra night was lven, last evening at, this fine resort of amusement, >r the benefit of M. and Madame Laborde, when, we re delighted to say, one of the most crowded and isbionable audiences of the reason assembled. The erformance chosen for this benefit, was Donizetti's l.ucia di Lammermoor," instead of his" La Fillu du legiment," which had been previously announced, but n account of the great success of the Italian opera, as changed, and replaced by the < Ac/ J'auvre of the elebrated mattlro. Madame Laborde played and sang ucla, in a manner which was universally appreciated, nd which was rewarded by many applauses, encores, i-calls, and a shower of fragrant bouquets. It is true ? say, that she threw such pathos into her part, and ispiajea tucu arusuc fM.ni, an to bring down the itpiuroun approbation of,her numerous admirer*. As ir M. Laborde.bla style of singing, and his personation f Kdgsrdo, under an entire new shape of romanticism, llcited great praise as to ids capacities as a singer and tragedian ?n lomme, the opera went olf in the oat creditable manner, and wo heard many persons zpress their regrets|that this was the last night of Ions, and Mdo. I.aborde's engagement. There is a mnor, that propositiona bare been made to the above amed arthts by M. Try, the manager of the next talinn operatic troupe ; we hope tint wishes of the ublic will be realized. The entertainmsnts of this renlng will commence with the laughable farce of dvice Gratis. Songs, by M. liatton The whole to onclude with the comic piece ol Mr. and Mrs I'eter I'hits. No doubt this bill will prove atttractive. National Thsatrb.?The house was crowded in very part last evening, as it ha? been. In fact, on very evening since the production of the 'Mysteries nd Miseries.

Manatee Strasobch.?The rehearsals for the great monster concert, which comes off on the 2d October,, commenced yesterday, and will be repeated every day till the eveniDg of the concert. Strakosch, the great Butsian pianist, is busily engaged in making preparations, so as that it will, no doubt, be the greatest musical festival which has ever been offered to the citizens of New York. The chtf d'otuire will be tha famous concert "Stuck", composed by Carl Maria Von Weber, accompanied by the'ehestm. Another very attractive feature, wilt be the great overture to Itizzio, composed by Maretzeek, and played for eighty sue ceseive nights at Vienna. There will also be a grandf duo for two pianos, which has been composed by Struk< sch. This distinguished pianist, had the honor of playing it at St Petersburg, with his pupil, the beautiful Princess Olga. in presence of the whole Court, wnere he received the must marked favors, for his high attainments in musical excellence. As soon as we get a sight of the programme, wo will review the different pieces offered for this grandcutertainuient. The Taiif.bxaci.e?Thk Mobaviax Six?:e?is.?The large audience which crowded this plaoe, last night, proves, in the most incontestable manner, the appreciation in which this taleuted band of musicians are held by the public. There was scarcely a pieoe in the programme that was not enoored, and a more varied or beautiful selection of airs and ballads was never presented to an audience. Tho fascinating Mad'He Lovarny ss.ng In German, Knglish, Irish, and Scotch. and in every piece elicted the moot tremendous applause. The diversified population of till* city hud all u treat both rich and rare To the Irishman, ''Molly Dawn'' was a gein entirely ; the Scotchman never beard.'What's a' the steer k!mrner,"ksung with an air and tone so racy of-the land of mountain and flood;" the Cockney must have been in raptures with ''Jeannitte and Jeannot;"but nothing could exceed the furor excited in the audience by the inimitable manner in which she sang ' Yankee Doodle " The absence of all affectation too. and the cheerful, good nutured and modest manner with which this accomplished lady r< Bponded to the many eucores she received, contributed. even more than her extraordinary powers, to raise her in the estimation of her numerous admirers, lleir runs, with his wonderful tenor bass and soprano voice ; Zorer. with his beautiful imitations of tho French horn ; and the never-to-be-forgotten Stuepel, on the xilocordeon, were each in his turn the wonder and tbe admiration of the whole house. We are glad to see that this company intend to remaiu for a fewnights longer. Those who have not yet heard them should not allow them to take their departure without enjoying so great a treat, for such a comb! nation ef musical attractions has never before been offered in this city. .Apollo Rohm*.?The second entertainment given by Mr. J. I., llatton, last evening, was attended by a large and fashionable audience, and we must say, we have not. for a long time, spent such a pleasant evening. as in listening to the truly comic and enlivening songs oft his vocalist. He possesses a good baritone voice, wbicb he useswltb great skill, and infuses such life and. soul into every tbiDg he sings, that the conclusion of each air is followed by repeated chnrs. The new song, " Tbe Adventures of Robinson Crusoe," was rendered with great comic ability; and the eccentrio song called "The Little Kat Man," was given with such comic expression as to excite the risible faculties of the entire audience Independent of his abilities as a vocalist, Mr. Hatten is an able pianist, whioh enables him to give to his songs the greatest refinement and finish ; in fine, there Is such variety in his entertainment, we predict for him the greatest success. Campbell's Minstrels.?These uni({uo and admirable performers complete their sixth week this day, and during that time every concert that they have given has~bcen a crowded one, and they have attained a name and fame as the best band of Ethiopian singers that wo have among us. Their singing and dancing is indeed tho most refined and elegant Ethiopian performance that we have ever witnessed, and families will find a visit to the Society Library a most delightful way of obtaining an evening's entertainment. To-day they will give an afternoon concert, at S P. M., in addition to the usual evening onoat 8 o'clock. The Panorama ok General Taylor's Mexican Campaign increases in lavor with the public, who go in crow ds to see it. It is a most accurate and natural delineation of the stirring events in this memorable campaign, and ought to bo seen by every one who takes the least interest in the doingB of his countrymen in Mexico. It will be exhibited twice to-day, via.: at 3 and 8 o'clock P. M. Banvard's Panorama will be exhibited twioo to-day, vis.: at 3 and 8 o'clock P. M-, and as it will positively be removed from the city on Monday, all who wish to ace It had better avail themselves of this, the last chance. Castle Garden.?Tho Ethiopian singers at thie bouse are doing well, and give much satisfaction to all who visit the Garden. To-morrow the usual Sunday evening concert will be given at this elegant establishment. Madame Anna Bishop is at Kingston, Canada Collins is drawing great houses at the Walnut street theatre. His popularity continues singularly unabated. He is a man of rare talent and deserves it. Elder Adams baa opened again the Olympic theatre, in Baltimore. l'oor business.

Slidell Mckenzie, took place yesterday afternoon, at St. Mark's church. The naval officers of the ships and stations adjacent to the city attended, among whom were Commodore Terry, and Captains McKeever, Brinkloe, and Hudson, and Commanders Bell. Eagle, and 8anda. The marines and band from the navy yard, were also present. The ceremonies were performed by the Rev. Dr. Creighton, of Tarry town. There were quite a large number of persons in attendance. The remains* were placed in front of the altar, and the marines drawn up in the aisle on the north side of the church. As the remains were carried out of the ehureh, a voluntary was played on the organ, and as they appeared the band played an air appropriate to the occasion. 'The remains were deposited in a vault ia the yard; after which the marines were drawn np, and fired a salnte of three charges. The suddenness of the demise of this officer, rendered it exceedingly difficult for the Commanding Marino Officer, at the Barracks, to turn out even one small company of U. S. Marines, to pay the last sad funeral ceremonies. The escort was commanded by Brevet Major Reynolds ; but, Instead of a battalion, which ia the legitimate command of a major, and to which thn lamented deceased officer is fully entitled, but one skeleton company, as above stated, oould be furnished and of that, onc-bslf are here awaiting discharge from the service, but who readily volunteered for the occasion. But for this prompt action on the part of the corps, who, many of them, have served with the brave and amiable deceased, his body must have been laid ia the tomb, w'thout any of the distinguishing marks of approbation which the government iuatlv owes tn ail there who Lave rendered the States good sorrier. This circumstance only tends further to show tha absolute necessity that exists for retaining the increase of this branch of the serrice; and why any sane man. or set of men, should opposo it, is beyond oar comprehension; for not only have the marines dona good and efficient service to the country, during th* Mexican war, by land and eta, but here, at home, they can be employed to niuoh greater advantage thanmes^ corps that we have cognizance of; and we sincerely hope that Congress may consider this goed old oorpe favorably, at the ensuing session.
