The Prospects of Ureat Britain and Ireland. The last news from Great Britain and Ireland was of a very quiet character. The intestine commotions which agitated these kingdoms for some months past, appear to have subsided, and the masses have been compelled to submit to the superior physical force of the government and the aristocracy. The attempted revolution in Ireland has been completely put down, and the government is now occupied in punishing tiiose who wera instrumental in exciting it. The chartists of England are being subjected to similar treatment, and from lilt iciupci tlUU UCV.1D1UU ?JllCU tut gu vci 114:1cm have t-hown, to repress all attempts ontheir part, to resort to physical force, there is but ltttle hope that much leniency will be shown them in the courts ol law. Notwithstanding all the excitement, which the newspapers describe as resulting from the agitation in both countries, and notwithstanding all the expectations which were enkindled, and carefully fostered in this country, by a few crafty place-hunters, a ft tv selfish and mercenary traffickers 111 politics, and 6om? simple-minded and credulous enthusiasts, there was no real basis cn which to ground any hopes of success in either country. In England the chartists formed a very small minority of the people, had no leaders, no organization, and very little spirit, it would appear, to make the necessary efforts to overturn the established order of things. In Ireland, the atttmpts at insurrection, were feeble, ridiculous, and absurd. There never was such a forcible illustration of the hackneyed quotation? " Parinriunt montes nascitnr ridleulses mus." For years past, the public mind was stirred to its lowest depths. Every appliance of the pen, and the tongue, poetry and prose, eloquence and song, were brought into requisition, for the purpose ol effecting this much desired consummation. The " bloody old British empire" wps cursed in every mood end tense, and scathing denunciations were hurled against it from every rostrum and every press. Apostrophes were made to the sword, in " j aougni* mat oreatne, ana worus tnai uurn; ' and sentiments worthy of a Tell and a Kosciusko | sounded throughout the length and breadth of the land. It is humilieting to lind that all this was mere bluster and braggadocio?the secret aspirations ?f a few briefless barristers and newspapertditors, who had neither the mind to conceive, nor the ability to execute, the grand schemes they had planned for the liberation of their country. Failure is not always a test of incompetence ; but the failure of the late abortion of an insurrection in Ireland should, in the minds of all reflecting uien. be a most satisfactory and convincing evidence of the incomjetence of the men who were at the bottom of it. There appears to lipve been no calculation whatever made on the subject. This lorig-itanding failing in the Irish character was never more perceptible. Providcace was exacted to do everything ; prd the old nursery rhythm. ' Open your mouth, and shut your eyes. And see if God won't give you a prize," was illustrated to the letter. Insteud of carrying out their own injunctions to "up with the barricades. and invoke the'God of buttles," theleadersi to a man, fled the metropolis, and betook them- i st Ives to lud'ng places m the mountains. Everyihing was left to chance and poetry. If any one of these would-be leaders had had a very small portion of the lect and ability of Daniel O'Connell, the late leader of the Irish peodk. lis would not have been the ignominious upshot. "Whatever difference of opinion there may be as to the means by which he proposed to effect his objects, no one can doubt that he took the nios! likely steps to accomplish them. He won over to hia policy the Catholic clergy, and ' though the Young Ireland party affected to trea' ' them as indifferent adjuncts to their cause, it is useless to disguise the fact thnt they are the only channel to reach the Iriah people The only hope lor a successful revolution in Ireland must be based on a movement which ensures their co-operation No attempt, however, to change the existing order ?I things in Iieland, Kngland, or Scotland, can ever succeed, unless there is a combined movement of all classes to bring it about. An isolated or local insurrection must he always abortive. The overwhelming influent >- unrt innfr.o??oKi;?i,?ri ?r of the aristocracy cannot he shaken but by tlv associated and c oncentrated intelligence of all claaecs. It wan such a combination which produced the great revolution of 1640. The commercial and middle clashes of that day united with the maaaaa^ bioke down the power ol the aristocracy, aent Charles the First to the block, and paved the way lor the Commonwealth A similar movement now, ib the only one that pomm-hbcs the least probability of success. No one acquainted 1 with th< bo * lal and political structure of society ' n I.upland, Scotland, or Ireland, can rationally ' ? ntertain any other opinion. Can anyone suppose Hi*t the tVHu lauded aristocrats of Ireland, the t t\*tt 'itnii * - (Mtfi of Scotland, and the 20,000 or 25,000 of Eagnd, who now lule twenty-eight millions of poo. e, can have that oligarchical Bway which they nvc so lonp exercised, annihilated by the impulsive nd isolattd eflorts ol a single class, and that lass ihe moat uneducated, the worst organized, nd the lea.t powerful in the communityl It is ( posed to common sense, and to every rational alculaiion, to suppose such a thing. These *5,000 or 40,000 families, who swallow up the entuls of the land and the revenue of the governnent, have had too long and too great a priority >1 tenure to be to easily disi>06ses8ed; and the nthience which this gives them in the commercial nid monetary classes is too poweiiul for the labor, ng classes alone to cllect their overthrow. The middle classes mubt be rallied under the standard of opposition ; the intelligence of the countiy must be combined in hortility; a party mutt be formed in the llou.e of Contuious to give expression to their views, and the formidable power ot tnc aristocracy must oc assailed witn an organization and nn energy commensurate with the greatness of the undertaking. The example of our forefathers in this country must be adopted, und the struggle carried on with unflinching and indomitable j>erseverance. In the If evolutionary war, no less than sixty battles were fought, from the day the tea was flung overboard till the flag of independence flouted on the hill tops. In the last war, ihirty-eight engagements were contested before This heoglity aristocracy submitted to oitf invincible prowess, and were forced to confess their inferiority to the citizens of a free country. If a similar result be ever achu ved over them in their own country, similar energy and perseverance must be used by the combination of all classes who groan under their oppression. The domestic history of England and Ireland will be very much affected, also, by the foreign policy of different European governments toward each oilier. In Italy, France, Germany, and Russia the political elements still appear to be in a state of confusion, and it is impossible to say what may arise out if these complicated relations. Taken however in connection with the elements of inter" nai discontent and forced submission which are at work throughout the British empire, a revolution of some kind must take place, bnon?r or later, ai d though it may be of s'ow development and subject to many contingencies, the sooner that all isolated movements are repudiated, the more speedily and more effectively will the Chartists of England and the repealers of Ireland accomplish the objects which they have respectively at heart. The Ei.ectric Telegrauh.?The question brought before the courts, as to the right of othet individuals than Mr. Morse, to use the e'ectric fluid for telegraphic purposes, is not only one ol great interest, but alto of high moment to the public. Our correspondent, G. W., yesterday, has presented the opinion^ of some high legal authorities bearing strongly upon this case; but we nre of the opinion that they do not admit of the which the friends of Mr. Morse claim for their side of the question. The question admits ef being stated in the following shapes:? First.?Has any man. other than Mr. Morse, the the right to use the machinery, and adopt the plans of Mr. Morse 1 Secondly.?Has any one, besides Mr. Morse, n r:giit to vise tiie electric II.ud, with machinery and plane, ditlerent from those of Mr. Morsel The question in these two divisions becomes, we think, easy of solution. No one can dispute the exclusive right of Mr. Morse to all lm plans, machinery, ard peculiar original contrivances; and also, we believe, no one can dispute the general common right ot the public to catch, as Dr. Franklin did, the electric fluid, and use and ap. ply it as they may best be able to do. No patent laws, no judicial decisions, can give any man a right to the exclusive use and application ol any genera! substance or common element ol universal nature. Our correspondent, G. W., has fallen into a mistake, in calling electricity a " principle," and denyipg it to be an element. It is an eleireut of nature ; that is, a natural substance, mateua! or entity, forming one of the component parts or ingredients of the great mass or variety of created existences, which, in their aggregation, we call " nature." A principle is, on the other hand, nothing material; it is a theorem, or axiom ; some great discovered truth, pertaining to science Daron Alderson decides that a patent cannot be tuken out lor a principle, unless coupled wiih the lucdc of carrying the principle intoeflect; but no judge, in any country of the world, has ever decided, or dare decide, that a patent can be taken aiif for tVip pvpIiioivp ticp r?f anir pnmmnn nnivAr. sal natural substance or ingredient of nature, which is so universally dilTused as to indicate its universal nece:sity, and is do subtle and elastic as to indicate the prohibitions of its Creator that it should never be compressed, confined, or hoarded up in the possession of monopoly. The great interest of this subject, both to the public and to inventors, would warrant an extension of our reinaike, but we deem what we have heie said sufficient for the present purpose. Interesting, .Relative to Venezuela.?A traveller who arrived at the Howard Hotel, on Satur day evening, repoits that, on the 24th August last, a steamboat, bearing ihe American flag, entered the harbor of St. Thomas; rather an unusual occurrence. She turned ,out to be the Augusta, of New Orleans. On her deck two individuals were poir?ed out rs the aides of General Paez, who was still on the island, in daily and anxious expectation of the arrival of this steamer. It was said she carried a considerable quantity of the munitions of war, to be landed on the main land. Can this be the Augusta alluded to in the Herald of yesterday, under the head, "Affairs in Venezuela V On the 22d and 2&1 August, a small schooner WflB nrinainrr nil tlio KorKnr of Sit Tlinmia hoof'mrr -?.. f- w. ?% w*. a Hvmup, vvauug up for recruits to the war on the main land; but, as she did not enter, it was inferred that her success did not extend beyond communicating with General Paez. The exactions of his successful rival, IVlonegas, had caused the appearance of an American and British vessel of war, for the protection of their respective fellow subjects. He had exacted the large sum of $20,000 (duties already paid to the preceding government,) ?rom one American niercantile.rstablishment, and on their refusal to re-pay, confiscated all tliei r property. The people of St. Thomas, who are said to have upwards of one million dollars outstanding debts, due to them on the main land, anticipate with irreat delight, the speedy downfall of Monegas, and the ascendancy of Paez. Trooi"- for California.?The 2d regiment of Infantry, of Gen. ltiley's California brigade, arrived here yesterday, fcTO strong, under the command of 1st Lieut Hayden.

Great Ratification Gathering. CASS AND BUTLER. WALWORTH AND O'CONOR. That branch ol the democratic party, generally known by the sweet sounding name of old hunkers, held a ma.-s meeting, in Tammany Hall, last eve nwg, ior the purpose ot submitting the nominations of Cass and Butler, for President and Vice President, and Walworth and OVonor, for Governor and Lieutenant Governor of the State of New York, and other offices, to the rank and tile, the hard-fisted and the butt-enders.the tail-enders, and bobbers, of the party in this legion, for their ratification. The assemblage was very large, and very enthusiastic. Mr. Nathaniii. Pierce was nominated to preside, and the usual number ot vice presidents and secretaries were appointed .after which a series of resolutions was adopted by acclamation. While they were being read, a deputation of Hunkers,with a drum aifil fife proceeding them, made their appearance in front of the Hall,and cheered vehemently for Cass and Dutler. They then went up into the room where the meeting was held, playing Yankee Doodle, and proceeded to the platform; a few of their number remaining in the etreet, and amusing themselves by letting off Roman candles and other description* of lireworks. The reading of the resolutions was frequently interrupted by cheering the hunkers to mention, that the resolution approving the removal of Benjamin K. Butler, was applauded vehemently. Hon. Mike Walsh was the first speaker ? He commenced by denying an assertion made in the Onondoga Standard, and copied into the Glnht of this city, that he had advertised himself at Syracuse to respond to the nominations made there. He was advertised, without his knowledge or consent, to address asmeeting of mechanics snil working men. at the time the nominations were made, as he had done on previous ocecions ; but, when itjwas called as a meeting, without reference to psrty. he did not feel himself at liberty to preach politics, and reiused to address them. In regard to the coming contest, he Faid that, when a man is obl'g?'ti to go to the pawnbroker's with an article, be must be necesss.tated. and when he goes to redeem it. he is exhilirated, and cares nothing about the few shillings which he pays for the loan, and which make the pawnbrokers rich. In the late revolution in 1>ranee, so long as the people could lead on the enthusiasm created by the ovei throw of l.oirs Tbl'.ppe. so 'oDg could I.amsrtinu carry on the government; but when the hard working men asked themselves the question, how it was that they and their fa.uilies were as poor, a; hungry, and as ragged, as they were under the overthrown regime, tbey found they had to tight another battle, which was that of June.and which he. the speaker, regretted did not succeed. When the workingmen obteined tl.e revolution, the aristooracy endeavored to keep as near to the old system as they could. Had we anticipated in our revolution, nothing holier or higher, than a separation from the Biitish 1 crown, it would not have been worth n drink of water. After it was gained, and ns long as the enthusiasm lasted, the people did not differnmong themselves abJUt ( principle* ; but after a short time, the moneyed aristociacyiought to obtain the same ascendancy which lhc> possessed under British rule, and their party lines were first drawn in thi* country Then came Thomas lofliircinri an/1 nfl,,.wa irln + n.UU who sought to elevate wealth oyer the honest industry of the laud. There were no political cowards In those days. John Adams, federalist though he was, was not u sneaking federalist ; but now we have to deal with Men who can array themselves against popular rights, but who have not the manhood to come out with principles, and who place before ua men for our support, without a line of addrefi or re. o'ution to back them. We care nothing for profession, for any mean, sneaking, time-serving dog will profess any thing that is calculated to subserve his own interests ; but we look at men by their past lives and present conduct. What has been the conduct of the whigs in times past ' They gave their opposition to the extension of the elective franchise ; to the constitution, (and to something else which our reporter did not hear :) and they have favored a^ high tariff, and a United States Batik. They opposed' the late war. too. and stigmatised every man engaged in it as blood-thirsty [end as a robber; asserted that it was commenced for selfish ends, and for the purpose of robbing an oppressed people, and yet they take up, as their candidate, one whesa only claim to the office of President, is derivtdfrom his actions in that war. Both the wliigpurty. and th'-ir contemptible allies, tho abolitionists, who have been fattened and fed by the democratic party, have always been against the county. In the legislature of the State, thiy refused to vote a dollar, to furnish our volunteers with shoes, or a shilling to purchase a shirt for^hem, without passing a censure on the President, as the author of the unjust and unpopular war. as they called it. They talk of free soil, free labor, freo speech, free men, and when tkey want to make another addition to tho catalogue of their principles, they bad better add, and free mailbags. (Laughter ) Their talking of free soil, reminded him of a circumstance which occurred once of a man, who. after witnessing a fellow beat his iack&ss un | mercifully, went heme and wrote an essay against i cruelty to animal*, and when he had flnished it, turned , to and whipped his wife savagely. (Laughter.) They leremhled the fabled apple* on the dead eea, all fair without, but when you examine them, are rotten and poisonou* at the core. There is net a man among them who would raise his Toice against the hardship and tyranny committed by the aristocracy on their own free white cit'tens. They can shed crocodile tear* oyer the imaginary sufferings of people they never saw. but are dead to all impulses of humanity for those suffering around them. He would not insult the intelligence of the audience by quoting from either Mr. Van Buren, or Gen. Taylor, to show their inconsistency. He could not do better, however, than refer to the eleventh-hour speech of Daniel Webster, in reference to both of them. Mr. Walsh then recapitulated what Mr. Webster said of both on that occasion What does he say of General (ass? He says, that General j Taylor is to be preferred to him. because General Cass ' is the candidate of rash and imprudent party; because 1 he protested against giving up a portion of the North1 f astern boundary: because ne protested agaiust the j insolent assumption of the British government in re! gard to Oregen ! Who is General Taylor ? Leaving ' aside his military character, which the democrats were the first to do honor to, be accepted the nomination of j the natives, that of the wblgs. and that of a lew backsliding democrats in South Carolina, saying in effect, 1 that the smallest offers were thankfully accepted. I Henry Clay was the choice of the whig party ; but he was too good a whig for them, and they know that I whenever they contend on a fair contest, on principle, ' with the democrats, that they ore beaten. Hence they ! adopted General Taylor, without principles. Mrg I waisn tnen defended General Cass'posltition on the Wilmot proTiao. He fays, if there is any Interference in the slave question by Congress, in the matter, he I will veto it. This is taking true denocratlc ground, ' for none ef the members know any thing about the ' new territory ; and how can they legislate for it T ! Leave it to the people of those new territories to decide i upon it. One of the causes of our separatiomfrom the British was their impudent interference in insisting to legislate in Kngland for the colonies; and Gen. Cass says "let the people themselves legislate on the question of slavery.1' is not that democratic ? In regard to the barnburners. Mr. Walsh said he was taking a glass of brandy and water with John Van Bnren, I some time since, and be said to him. " John, you are I not so foolish as to think that the people will believe you care a fig for free soil ?" " Mike." said he, " there are more fools in New York than you think, or than is generally supposed." (Laughter ) In relation to the agitation about the removal of office-holders,Mr. Walsh said he did not wish to see the heads of any of the departments removed, although they were all rotten with but one exception, until after Gen. Cass' election. He himself wanted nothing from Cass when elected. There is not an office in his gift that he would accept, but there are many of our recently returned volunteers who ought to be relieved. Nearly every man is for Cass and Butler. He conclu<h;d by trusting that, on the fourth of March next, < leberal Cass would be installed in the AVhite House. He was succeeded by the Hon. Mr. Most*, of South Carolina, who. after referring to the handsome reseption he met with, and the reminiscences connected with Tammany Hall, said what is thexreat cause in which the democracy are engaged' Is it a contest for the election of men, or is it one of principle, between the old republican party and this new party, made up'of the factions of all parties, moved by the great leaven of federalism ' He confessed that when General Taylor's name was first proclaimed as an independent candidate, the people of 8outh Carolina were disposed to support him, but when they raw him receive the nomination of the whigs, and associated his name with Millard Killmore, they ooncluded that whether they liked him or not, they liked the cause of their country better. (Cheers ) When they gave up Cats it reminded him of a story of the two boys, who were about to divide a flock of sheep, whioh was the onlvnrftnprtf thi?? k-tu- I older brother wu wiser, and mora cunning than the other. The younger one had a pet abeep called Handy, which he bad raised, which slept in his room, which followed him everywhere, and wnich he thought a great deal of. The older brother, knowing this, divided the flock into two equal parts, as regards numbers, bat one part contained all the poor and bad sheep, and pet Handy among them, and the other contained all the good ones. Now, said he, liob, the sheep are equally divided, whioh half will you have? Bob looked at them a long time and said, well. Handy, we must part ; I liked yon well. Handy, while you were by fouricll, but when you get into such bad company, must give you up. (Laughter) And so it was with General Taylor 3 Mr. Moses then alluded to the differences that exist between the whig and democratic parties, and asked whether they wanted another high tariff or another United States Bank. Suppose, he said, Mr. Killmore had occupied the place of George M. Dallas, when the question of the last tariff was decided, whose casting vote carried that measure, what would have been the consequence? Himself the repmentatlve of a tariff Htate. he acted on the principle, that on constitutional matters there could be no compromise. If there is an act in the whole of Mr. Tolk's administration which he censured, it is, that he did not veto the Oregon compromise bill. His excuse was, for signing it, that that territory wanted a government; but a military government, under a democratic administration, would have been better than a civil government, the first acts of which would be performed bv whig representatives. I a respect to the po? Itlou of South Carolina, the speaker said she was as much attached to the Union as any other State; but she was attached to It as our fathers framed it. Hhe will sustain a position of equality in the Union, and will goto the death to prnrrrr ft. But, If the spirit of abolitionist i is to prevail. South Carolina will saj to the State ?f . M.M4 J ........... | New York. " Let j< a ami 1 have no more to do with thi? Union?it ir not the Union of the revolution, bnt the Union of there who are endeavoring, from personal metlves. like Nero of old, to fiddle while Rome is burning.'' South* Caroline fought nobly for Martin Van Bureu. the Northern man with Southern feeling* ; but what ha* ehe got by way of gratitude ? But he will be consigned to hi* political grave, and his son. John Van Burcn, will write hiB epitaph. He (Mr M.l bad but little faith in public men who, would be found capable of selling their country for a miss of pottage. (Cheers) He would ask. who bad Uenertl Taylor associated with him as Vice Tresideut ' (Hear) Millard Fillmore. But he would refer to the letter which he wrote to one Mr. Allison. (Cheers.) They saw nolhing in that letter that could protect tin m from the old abuses of the whig party ; nothing that could preyent them from having a National Bank; noth ng to prevent their having such a TarilT as would elevate the rich upon the shoulders of the poor ; nothing in relation to internal improvements and harbor improvements, that was not purely and essentially Whig. (Hear.) He would ask the whig*. did they mean to set up a man ef straw for the I'retideacy, who did not belong to the whigs, and yet. if be were elected to-morrow, he would have his oabinet o?mpostd of Whigs' (their*, and cries of "that's it.") Would they then put such a man in the chair? (No, no.) Would they also put such a man as 1-iilmcre to fill the Vice chair' (No, no.) If they did. would they have patriotism, and magnanimity. and independence ! (No. no ) Would they place Martin Van Buren in the Presidential chair, became he would have the negro population whitewashed ? (Laughter and cries of no, no.) If they believe that Martin Van Buren, or his son, care one fig for the freedom of the negro population, they are mistaken. The true stute of the matter was this,? Martin Van Buren was endeavoring to erect a platform for his son, or to put down the Southern States (Cheers.) That was the true state of the <{Uettion . He would ask thorn, were they willing that such a state of things should be brought about, so that every nigger could ride over their backs ? (No, no, and vehement cheering.) That ws < a glorious response. II.. ? ........ 1 UCnnlh I 'uwilin-i that response. (Htinewed cheers.) Veg, they would receiTe it wj ! (Here some foolish abolitionist, in tbe crowd, made an effort to interrupt the speaker, and was soon llirust out the doors, causing, at the same time, some confusion, after which the speaker resumed ) South Carolina would support Cass and Butler. (Three cheers for South Carolina.) It would go heart and soul for Cass and Butler, and both New York and South Carolina would vote together too, (cheering.) Charleston may have a few that would go for Taylor, but the State would go, he would pledge himself. for Cass and Butler. (Immense cheering) They believed that CasB and Butler were honest politicians. It was said in the South, that General Taylor was a slaveholder, but he did not say what he was, and they in the South did not want to have any thing to do with a man, who was afraid to speak, (applause.) or tell them what he was. (Cheering ) He did not wish to interfere with their local nominations for State officers, hut the reputatiou of ex-Chancellor Walworth, and Mr. Charles O'Connor. required nothing in recommendation from him. (Vcclferous and prolonged cheering ) He would leave them, therefore, to themselves. (Cheers.) He would, in conclusion, pledge South Carolina iu favor of the Cass and Butler ticket. The speaker concluded amid much applause. Mr. Edward Wrioiit. of New Jersey, was the last speaker that addressed the meeting, pledging the State of New Jersey in favor of Cass and Butler. They felt a strong assurance that, by doiDg their whole duty, as democrats, they would succeed in securing the electoral vote of New York. (Cheers.) Hewouldoffer a few remarks on the subject of the names of the rr.ndtdatcs before them. In 1840. the whlgs sent In Uereral Harrison. ana now tney wouia tain sena in Taylor. He bad been in several States, and all regie! ted tbe nomination of Taylor. The high character of ( ath needed no eulogy from bim.

Meeting of tlie Clay Whigs of the Seventeenth Ward. Pursuant to notice, the whigs of the 17th ward, op. posed to General Taylor, and favorable to the election of Henry Clay, assembled last night, at the 17th Ward Hotel, to express their preference for that gentleman. | At the appointed hour, about six hundred persons were in attendance. The meeting was organized by calling Isaac W. Smith to the chair, who, in a brief address, tendered thanks for the honor conferred upon him. He said it was a Clay meetipg, and he hoped the whigs would not falter in the performance of their duty. Henry Clay bad always been the firm exponent of whig principles?the father of tbe cause?and the I party would yet see that the true cause had been abandoned, but would eventually rise triumphunt. Mr. E. D. Smith was called for. He raid Follow citizens When I embarked in the political arena, 1 I was not a member of the 17th ward, but was now happy to say that he had since become a resident, and was proud in the fact that ho could raise his voice in the true cause. He spoke of tbe total unfitness of General Taylor for the Presidency, having never, in the whole course of his lift, held a civil station. Mr Clay, en the contrary, had, during a- period of fifty years, been an ornament to his country, and the cause which he advocated. When in Virginia, 1) was his pride to administer to the comforts of a widowed mother, and from that time, he has been the favorite statesman of the people. He had always expressed himself as opTHMPfl tft nlnnlntr n milltasv ohiaOaiw _ 41.., h... J -.r al. nation, a.s in the tented fluid, a man could necessarily 1 be obliged to keep bis soldiers in the proper traiH. by a course of tyranny, which was sure to go with them in the civil administration of alfairs With regard to the letter of the Erpreia from Mr. Clay, he said there j was nothing to create despair. They did not expect that I he would accept a nomination as a candidate for the Presidency, but they would support him. at all events ! He challenged Mr. James Ilrooka. or any other man, to ' produce that part of the letter which is marked in as! terisks. There was something in that part, which, ! probably, it would not be prudent to publish. Mr. Clay will vote for General Taylor, because in Kentucky there will be but two tickets, and of course he would prefer | to rote for Gen. Taylor, because he is the nominee of the Whig (so-called) Convention, butit will be{tbe bitterest ! pill be ever swallowed. He was glad to see the old 17th ward moving, for it was not the work of politicians; hut the people were aroused, and determined not to be forced to vote for a man who is not their choiee. He would call the attention of the German citizens to | the fact that General Taylor was brought forward by I the most bigoted of the native American party, and in ' Philadelphia, the church burners were the most indus| trious in their efforts to secure his nomination; and after his nomination, cheered as loudly as when they ! the temple of God enveloped in flame. The men in this city who first formed the Taylor clubs were of the ' same sort, and the same who defeated the election of | Morris Franklin and Dudley Selden -men who are the I true exponents of whig principles. Mr. Clay, he said. I bad become heart sick with the name of Presidency. . He never desired it, and only consented to be a candi' date for the good of bis country, and we will now support him as the man of our choice. They could not vote for Cassor_Van Buren, nor could they conscien tiousiy vote ror Tay lor,but would take their man, and trust to Uod and the people. Hamilton Fishj was the man they would support for the gubernatorial chair, for he was a man in whom they bad every confidence, and it was through the influence of the Clay whigs he received his nomination. Many whigs have already gone to the |Van Duren ranks, and tho oaly way to save them is to present to them such men as will lorma sure platform. The following resolutions were then offered by F. Kbyk.

S; a i The Claims of Governor Rosas of Bienos Avhks.?Gi ano.?This excellent manure is said Si to possess astonishing lertilizing powers. The ^ English have, for some years past, been in the w habit of collecting it from the islands on the coast ^ of Patagonia. It is the refuse of sea birds, and t there is, upon the rocks on the coast, an accuutuLtion of ages, of this rich manure. It is also y uted by tanners with great advantage, as well as tl by the agriculturists. Patagonia, where the " greatest quantity is procured, is au almost un- u known country, at the southern extremity of South America, and is famous for being the fabled H land of giants. The aboriginals were reported to c be of gigantic stature, but this idle tale has long ' since been exploded. Patagonia, we believe, forms a part of the Ar- ? gentine Republic, but is unsettled, and destitute of p poits, cities, or commerce. Rosas, the Governor J of Buenos Ayree, however, has hatched up a sin- c gu'ar claim against the British in relation to the R guano, which they have procured from the Pata- j, goninn coast. He now calls upon them to pay for fl all they have teken away, end has brought a bill against them to the amonnt of two millions stei- i ling for this substance. ? Alas, for poor John Bull!

Let us say at once, that * never in the United States has a ballet ecjunl to that 0 produced last night at the " New Drury" been offered H to an American audience. The libretto of " Esme- h > ralda" has been, as it is known, borrowed from the S i admirable novel of Victor Hugo, the great French * pcet, whose ' Notre Dame de Paris" is considered the el chef d'truere of romantic literature, and in which all K the characters are impressed with the seal of nature 1,: and truth, which constitute the beauty of that cele- " brated novel. The lovely K.smeral'la. as well as the K beau I'bu'bus, the cdious Priest Frollo. and the hor- { Tl rible monster (Quasimodo, are interesting in their i tt parts from beginning to end.

We were, us well as the au- 81 dience, Identified with the epoi/u of the moytn age, and we dreamt we were really taking part in the animated cc drama of Victor Hugo. Madame Monplaisir. accompanied by her pretty goat ' Djal," deeply impress- ?ll ed the audience, and displayed such jelcs batlui, such difficult sautt. that she was declared admirable, and ?l' worthy of the highest rank as a dansruie and a conic- n> dirnnt. As for M. Monplaisir. he rendered his part of tirlngoire with a vaivtte, a bonhomie, which proved Pc that ho deeply knew the character of his part; his th dancing was as wonderful as It was difficult. M.

Great credit is also due to the makers th of the gorgeous pageantry and the splendid scenery of th " Ksmeralda." the music of which, borrowed by M. W Pugnl, of London, from Melle Bertin's opera of that ( name, was enchanting, and perfectly appropriate to the subject of the piece. We have uo room to give more particulars, but we recommend all the am at eurs T{, of artistlcal dancing, to go and witness, to-night, the second performance of " Ksmeralda.'' Bowt.nv Theatre.The new drama of " The Con- a? spiraton" was presented last evening to a very well filled house, and the interesting story of this piece was hil most favorably listened to by the audience. It is a 'ni Russian story, and turns on a conspiracy entered into ' by sundry of the disaffected soldiers and officers of the army, headed by the court physician, to depose the regency of Russia, and place Elizabeth, the daughter I of Peter the Great, on the throne. N. B. Clarke, as let the wily. Intriguing, and ambitious courtier, played of 1 with much energy and was much applauded Hall, exi a> Captain Demetrius; Warden, as the Serf, and Mrs. I Jordan. Walcot and Phillips, as the Princess, Rozetsky, to and i atharine, were also excellent. Mrs. Phillips' 1 mile song was received witn great applause. In fact, fee this most Interesting drama went off very successfully, vat The beautiful dancing of those elegant artists, Signora go' < locra and Signor Nerl, and the grand spectacle of tho jus " Destruction of the Dastile.'' concluded the perform- ins ances ; and we must say, that a pleasanter evening can taji no where be spent than at the Bowery, when such an is c airay of attractions is set forth every evening as is now lot the case. To-night the same bill will be repeated.? wei The dancing of Signora Clocca and Slg. Nerl Is of itself tea worth the price of admission.
