I have not the same report to make with regard iVim gg I h?ri in mv List l?>lter. For srme days, there have been symptoms of a ftesh outbreak m the neigliborhoed of the late msurrec. lion; the laborers quitted their employment, and afl business was at a stand still. On Friday last, in consequence of a re|K>it being abroad that another attack was meditated, the military were under arms all night; h< wever, all remained quiet till Monday evening, when a camp was discovered in *he hills of Slievenamon, and that beacon fires were blazing everywhere; whilst at Waterford, the battlements were removed from one of the bridges, previous to destroying the bridge, for the purpose of impeding the progress of the troops. Some skirmishing has taken place al*o, at the latter j.iaee, Jjetweeu the insurgents and police, loss on both aides. Curitigbmore Castle, thy ?eat of the Marquis of "Wnterfoid, which is defended by twenty men and three ewivel guns, day and night, was attaoked, and it is Stated tL;it the guns hare been raptured. Whilst, at Carrick-(>n-Suir, a generul rising of the peasantry all round the country took plaoe; and on the evening of the 12th, a large party marched to the attack of the constabulary barracks at Uleubower about eight miles from Cloninel. The police were packing their luggage, and prepiiiing to seek refuge iu Car rick, when the insurgents tired on them; the police retreated to the fc&rrackti. which they fortified l'h? leader, a respectv/>. tnun ??u, nn tn n ..d in bis hand to fraternize with tUo police, (in the same way a* Smith O'Brien did ) l'h? police kept him in conversation till another party of police, who were on their way to Cariick, arrived When tn? insurgents paw them, they immediately 1-ft tbe barrack, and went up and demanded their arum; whereupon, the constable of thf party, to gain time, read theui a lecture, and then mucin for the barrack.-. The ottaer party pursued, 'When a desperate tight took place, those Inside the t>arrack6 having joined their comrades They all then xetreated to the barracks. Souie military aud police subsequently arrived, and drove off the assailants.? Four or lite ot the leaders in this attack wore the uniform of the '82 Club. The police have tied from all the eut stntii'DH. It it stated that the insurgents havo three camps formed, namely, at Newtowu, Curraghmore, aud I'illtown. Dobeuy is said to have taken the command of the Waterfurd division, wliose present rendezvous is at Portland; and the Tijiperary division is under the command of O'Mabony, at SUevenauion. General McDonald has again gone down to take the command of the troops, ana has applied for a reinforcement of artillery and cavalry, wtiioti can well be spared; the armed force at predentin Ireland, at the 'Jispofal (1 the government, heiug 60 000 men.

The government subsidy, now allowed, will oe&se next mouth, and. if it be not renewed, we shtll then see how these establishments will get on. The opening of tbe Italian Opera is announced for tbe 3d of next month. Orlsl and Mario, for tbe first time since their celebrity, are not engaged. Lablaobe is the only name of eminenoe among the Don, and Mademoiselle Persiani and Costellan among tbe ladies. Some new artists of both sexes are to be brought from Italy, whose demands on the soore of salary will not be so onerous as thoi>e of tbe former company. It Is, however, doubted, notwithstanding the announcement, whether the theatre will be open at all. Yesterday evening, at eight o'clock, a multitude of carriages filled the approaches of the hotel of tbe President oi the Council. It was the reoeption day of Gen. < avaignac. The crowd was very great, and It was with difficulty one could move about. Lord Normanby, tbe Charge d' Affaires of Sardinia and Spain, M. de Lamartine, the President of tbe Assembly, all the ministers, members of all opinions, many generals, and a great number National Guards, were present. General Cavaignac, in plain clothes, and wearing the cross of the legion of honor, did the honors of the salons with a courtesy full of dignity, without sacrificing perfect amenity. So soon as a lady was announced, the General conducted her to bis mother, and after a few words of politeness returned to bis place beforo the fire, where he conversed for a long time with Lcrd Normanby, Gen. LaMoiroiere and several members of the Assembly. A grand military orchestra, placed in the garden executed during the evening walt/es and mareVs. This was the first time that music was introduced at these receptions, and the ladies appeared to be particularly pleased with the innovation. Among them we saw Lady Normanb), Madsmes de Lamartine, Senard, Warrant, Trouve; Chauvel. &c About 10 o'clock the report of a musket, toward3 tbe garden, caused some agitation. A part of tbe visitors went towards the spot from whence the report proceeded, and another part to the salon in wbioh was Gen i'avagnac. It was soon learned that no accident had happmed. A sentinel bad inadvertantly dropped his musket, and tbe musket, In falling on the ground, had gone off At midnight there was still a considerable number in the salons. Since my last despatch Austria has accepted the mediation of Kngland and Krance, in the question of northern Italy. This aeceptance is accompanied with certain' conditions which have not been made public, but which are understood to be the retention of the nominal, if not the actual sovereignty of the I.ombardo-Venitian provinces bv Austria, granting mem.

The coupon of the halt yearly dividend of the Five per Cents was detached on the 7th, and the price, accordingly, wt?s reduced by the amount of the dividend, 2.50. A decrce, which appeared at the latter end of last week, allowing the shareholders of the Lyons railroad a further delay until the 15th, to declare then option ns to the paying up their whole shares, and obtaining a larger amount ot rcvte I y way of bonus, has naturally induced some sales, and tended to lower prices. This decree has had n bad eflect on the market; it was not anticipated; no one had heard it mentioned. It was presented, discussed and voted, without having been put on the order of the day. The capitalists are alaimed at surprises; and this has led them to apprehend others, of a similar hind Besides this, they see in the meaevre a symptom of the penury of the Treasury. The acceptarce of the Anglo-Franco mediation, by Austria, has li#<l a favorable effect on the Bourse, and tended to support prices. The new loan?the coupons of which will be detachcd after the payment of the second instalment, that la the !20th of this month?has been much in demand during the week. The advantage of selling old Kivea. and buying into this stock, is now beginning to be teen. The Threes hare also become the object of numerous I operations, fur a rise entered into, with a view to the I coupon of December. The improvement of this flock is favorable to the I holders of Treasury bont, the discount of which has | been materially diminished within the last ten day*.

Excitement and Threatening Commotions?The Italian*, Q-c. t Your renders are probably already acquainted | with the particular* of the a:mistice enter?d ( into between Denmark and Prussia. A fine i I piece of diplomatic cunning! The conditions of ihis ainnstice would make it appear that the irt-r, mans were entiiely muted and deleaied in Schles [ wig-IIoUtein; w hat 'he valor of General WYangel i has laboriously and at great sac: lfices obtained for the nation, is given away by the negotiation of 1 l tlih Prussian ( abinet You will have noticed that it ! Is to be in fore* for seven months?ju>t long enough : to keep tbe German* inactive diri ng tbo winter, when the advantages are all on their side, when the ships and Island* of the Danes are unavailable, and a speedy and complete victory over the insolent foe certain But I will not comment upon the condlt ons of the treaty itsef? they are known to all your readers, and speak (or themselvei* ; any one who has the least knowledge of tbe condition of the two belligerent nations, and of the nature of tbe war oarrled on between them, is left to lorm his own opinion of the shame which is cast upon the wbola German nation by this piece of statesmanship, of which a oemmon school boy In the States would be ashamed to be the author. But the manner in which it wan ratified, the unwarrantable authority assumed by the ninx of I'ruMiniD this matter, Is what tbetild make every German bliub?what has raured such excitement in the piibue mind In the Mtuth im | art of Germany. I stated in uiy laet, that the Prealdut of the ( abiMt, Mr Heakecber, deolared to the National Parliament, that owing to tbe >peed with wnicb the negotiations w*re earned on, a tew slight deviations fToa t*a NMlaUsi of the Partia?aat ia tau W YC SUNDAY MOBNING wrrr ?ui wucu p*-vmtlt*r of the armistice wne mad* known. It Hpp*?i><] th?i neither the National Parliament norths Kxecutive Power had hmn recognl*?M); thf negotiations were oarrifdon between tbe orown of Denmark aad the king of Proarla, in tt>a ramp of tlv " (turinao Band " Now the " Herman Bond " i? an institution which hn? lung alnce ceastgi to exist; which tn? act of the Parliament, creating the central power and the exeoutlre. annihilated: and w? are therefore to infer that the king of l'rveela acted entirely on hi* own responsibility, and without any authority whatever from any existing power. In the act of 2ftth June, the National Parliament resolved, that " in making peace and declaring war, tbe Reichsverweser and Parliament should have suprrme jurisdiction and the aole right to deelare war. or make peace?or what in the same, carry on negotiation*?was thus vested in Parliament and the Relctutverweser. In the farm of thi? law, and only three months after its enactment, the king of Prussia takes upon himself to declare war or to make peace, on his own hook ; after ha had openly, officially acknowledged tbe supremacy of tbe Parliament and tbe validity of the laws passed by that body. This ia a specimen of the "concord" of the German empire, of the ' glory" of tbe (ierman nation, and of tbe endless and innumerable blessings promised by the prince* and cabinets of tbe several states, and guarantied by tbe,repref?ntatives of the "sovereign" people of Frankfort. After the armistice bad been read to the Parliament. a committee was appointed to report upon it, and the speaker of this committee recommended that the National Parliament refuse to ratify the treaty until a more minute apd thorough examination might be made. Tbls was resolved by the pitiful majority of seventeen ! 238 voting lor and 221 against the resolution. Little as thii msjori'y ia, tbe resolution had the effect of causing the ministers to resign Heokschor had recommendrdvthe ratification, and when this was refused, be threw up hia commission, and was followed by the whole cab'net, every minister and secretary aching to be allowed to withdraw. The Refoh?verweser accepted tbe resignation, and appointed Dahlinann to form a new cabinet, who, however, baa been unable, to the present moment, to find the proper men V. Homer, Rob Blum (members of the extreme left in Parliament.) V. Majcrn. from Vienna, Mr Warm, from Hamburg, and Simon, from Breslnu. are apoken of as probably to receive the appointment, but It is a3 yet very uncertain. It Is Impossible to give a true and certain reason for the unwarrantable, uawlse, and dangerous mode of action of the Prussian government It is very possible, that in this instance also, similar to the Italian affair, (In which Austria has acknowledged and permitted the Knglieh and French intervention,) a foreign power has exerted its influence ; I mean not so uiui u interna ho r.n^iauu i ne aimn greiiBrmuir, or rather meddler, that caused the confusions in Rome, in Naples. In Sicily, In Turin, may have been buoy in tangling the thread of diplomatic negotiation* at Berlin, at Copenhagen and Malmoe. England ia certainly the greatest gainer by the armistice Its commerce baa rtriously Buffered by tha blockade of the Geiman porta ; and it baa long been anxiously waiting for a dirmemberment of Prussia from the Xollverein, ao that it might be able to overflood German v with its manufactured goodF. It is England's poliey to sevt*r the north ftt m the couth ; the north wishes free trade, the couth cannot exist without protection of ita manufactories. so long aa England jealously exclude* everything it has to sell. But be the cause of this armistice what it will, its effect is fraught with danger to the whole fabric of the new system. The excitement is immense in the south?meetings are held, and soma districts have gone bo far as to demand of their representatives in the Parliament (who voted against the above resolution,) to lay down their commission and retire, in order to enable the people to send others in tbeir place, who more fully represented the opinions of their constituents. This has been the case with Matthy and Kallati, the only two of the 28 Deputies from IVurtemberg, who voted against the resolution. The final vote whether the armistioe shall be ratified or rejected, which will take place to-day or to-morrow, is expected with the greatest anxiety ; and serioui demonstrations are threatened should it bn accepted Decker, who wns to emigrate for America on tbd 20lh of this month, will probably remain here now in order to be present, if any occurrence should make a more successful attempt at revolution possible At a meeting held at Hcilbronn yesterday, there were at least OOOO persons present, among whom about 400 young ladies, who took part in the patriotic proceedings. and proclaimed themselves as ''republicans.*' The whole meeting, which was addressed by several popular tpeakerp. among others Hentges deputy from lleilhronu in the Parliament, expressed itself in favor of a republic (treat events are in store for us?a revolution bloodier than the one of last March is certain to come.

It appears, iroui official reports that the cholera has sprtad to Eatbc niaand Lithuania At R'ga. the number of persons who huve been seized with th t cholera, from the tiiue it broke out to the 18th ot August, amounts to b 1*20. of whom 3.480 recovered, 1.914 died, anu 682 are still under treatment The epidemio hat been more fatal at Mitlau, of 782 peisons who were attacked tip to the 31st of August 303 have died, and onlj 54 have recovered Siuce the beginning of July, the cholera has also broken out in Siberia, when* it bud 'not penetrated in former year*. At Stottin where it broke out on tl.? 16th. there have been 204 victims up toihecOth.

The number under .reatoient ha* diminished to 438. At Constantinople, on tbe 10th ult , tbe disease continued much the same; but at Stnyna the deaths were some thirty pur diem Unlike the general character of the disease, it has manifested ithell more among the higher than the lower ordera, and a greater prop< rtion of the Europeans bad been attacked than at Constantinople. The town population of Smyrna have fled to Bournahat and Boudia. Accounts fron. Cairo to the 10th nit., give the following return*:?

In London, according to the registrar's weekly report, there have been tlve cases of cholera during the last week, but this, it is stated, does net exceed the usual summer average of tbe metropolis. In Berlin, as yet,only one instance is recorded ot a case of cholera among persons abure the poorer classes. The Position ?f th? l)uc tie Bordeaux. The following is a copy of a letter addressed by (he Due de Hordeuux to a personage ot distinction in l'aris, and which, at this moment, is calculated to excite some lnterebt:?

The la-t trial resulted in a verdict for the d?tfld*lt. to whleh the plaintiff took exceptions. and it waa subsequently ??t aside The plaintiff then applied *o a Judge at Chamber*. for an order to add a special oiunt to bi< pleading. toenail* him to prove that consideration ?m given. The Judge

granted the oa#?r, trow which the plaintiff appealed. 1 he caa? waa subsequently arguod, and tbe following it. the decision. Col in?7hia in an appeal from an order at Chamber*. allowing a special count to be inserted in a nait on a note, a trial having been had aud n new trial having been ordered In the case The object of th? amendment in to avoid tbe consequence of relying upon tba common count* in an action upon a promissory note, vii., the defendant in an aotion upon tbe common count*, may prove that he never re ! cOved any money, land, or goedi for hia signature, but lent it without consideration; and the plaintiff cannot rely on tbe consideration which he gam for tbe | note before it became due to tbe party then holding 1 it, nor require tbe defendant to add to the feat of | his merely lending the note, proof of ithavlogbeen fraudulently parsed In order to place the platntiff ' in a petition thus to enforce his right*, m special count on tbe note is necessary. The Judge at Chambers baa allowed this amendment or spe rial count, to bo added to the nair. The defendant contends tliat the order is not justified by the equities of the cafe The opinion of the court, on graiiting a new trial, shows that the law prefers the plaintiff's equities tt> the defendant'*; if the plaintiff paid a consideration for the note before it fell due t? tbe then holder, why then should not the amendment be allowed ' 1 be defendant is supposed now to have the advantage, not on ti e whole law and merits of the care, but on the fact that the nan- is on the common counti only. The new code does not justify the rcfUFsl of tbe right of ft party by leason of a defeot in his pleading unless the pleading luay have minUd the adverse party; indeed, the whole spirit of sections 146, 6. 7 8, 9. 160, and 161. which apply to old suits, favors suob amendment!*, leaving it even doubtful under sec- | tion 161, whether an amendment 1s necessary; but If the order is nut suppi?ted In any way by the new code, it was made according to our rules previously existing, as well as to tbe amendment itself, as to the terms (as to coats) upon which the amendment was allowed. There is nothing In this case to show that the lefendant ha? been milled a* to the plaintiff's cause of aotion, ?r tbat plaintiffs seek to introduce a new cause. It seems to us that tbe order was proper, and should be Hflirmed Order at Chambers affirmed with costs. At Chambers.?Before Judge Ingraham.? In Rr Henry Wright.?His honor Judge Ingraham granted a writ of habeas corpus on the petition of the aant of Henry Wright, directed to Mr. Blount his master, to briiighim before the judge, in order to have him discharged from his apprenticeship It appeared in evidence that be was put into the Orphan Asylum by his *lt>ter, in 1836 and then represented to bi only nine .years old, otherwise, he would not be received. In 1681', three years afterwards, he was bound appientioe to Mr. blount. ? respectable House and sign painter, to | continue with him until be arrived at the age of j iwent}-one jears. He was bound, in accordance with | the representations made by his sister, tbat is, that he man but nine years of a Re when he was put into the asylum. and twelve when he waa bound, and that const quently be would have nlm> yearn to nerve. The application was to have him discharged on the ground tbat be * an ten years when he was left at tbe asylum, and tbat he bad attained his full age during the current month. The family 13ible. in which tbe date of bis birth was entered, was produoed to at>ow tbat he was bcrn in 1827. Parole evidence was also given in support of it. On tbe part of the Trustees uf the Orphan Asylum, and tbu matter, It wax shown that tbe regulations of ttie bouse were toaduiituo child over the age of nine years ; that the usual formalities 10 Msccitain bis age were gone through, that he was represented us of ttiat age. |hat a fraud had been committed on tbe Institution, and tbat they, the Trustees, if tbe boy were discharged, would, however innocently, be guilty of peipetrating a fraud on Mr. Blount, tbe mai-ler Under tbe circumstances, it was uonieuded, by counfel, tbat his honor ought not to discharge him particularly as be bad but a year to serve, and there was n o complaint against the muster.

The characters to be transmitted by aid of thif apparatus, are limt perforated in Dirroir paper rib' bon, by a small machine, perfectly simple in its con*tiuctiun, and are tben transferred to an y number of > stations, on the same line, with the rapidity of on* > thousand letters to tbe minute. By aid of tbe perforating machine, an abstract of news, or any other intelligence. may be prepared on a voyage across the oeean, or while travelling in any ordinarily quiet conveyance. where there is no telegraph; so that instantly on arriving at a telegraphio station, the composition dei-irabln to be traiiMnitte^cnu be sent at onoe with the rapidity mentioned above, and with much les? expense than at present Another maobine on exhibition at Mr. Bain's rooms, is called the Key Telegraph. It is of quite simple coui-truciiou, aud can be worked with facility and expedition by any intelligent purion. The cot-t ol this miicbine is only a few dollars. It U intended piincipal'y for offices at railroad stations, on lines where it is desirable to transimtHhert message* frequmtly Anotb?r really moat ingeniously devised machine is called theCopying Telegraph, which transmits not only the mui-Mtue desirable to be sent, but deiiv^a it at its destination in far limit* of tbe hand writing4b which it is received by tbo operators; a message tn (teiiograpby, or phonogrnphy, being ai easily oonvi yen in the appropriate characters, as one written in the uhual chirograpby of the language. Mr. U claims to have originated this mode of applying chemistry, that t-eience never having been so applied until he had completed and set In operation one of his machines In the i-auie rot m with the machines already mention cu, uro a number of clocks, all propelled by electricity. 'I lirfc < imt-pieces will run for three yearn, without cleaning; anil an they never need winding, they are, when perfectly regulated, true indicator* of the exact time front year to year. A further advantage is that any number of clocks may be employed in a building or i n n in a town, and being conuecied with the nam* source i t electricity, wlil all indicate precisely tti * s tme time Altogether the exhibition is an exceedingly ln> terest'ni? one and an hour spent at the ab >ru rooms will not be regretted an lo.-t by scientific, or the ourious in tin ee matters. , Ktiti.m A mono Dons ?During the !tw pas<ed by , the Common Council, authorising the m lyor to oiler i fifty cents tor the "laughter of each every dog f< utid running at large uuring the pending of this law j : prohibiting such animals to infest the paMio itreets, ' v ilhout In iu|r mnr/.leii or ltd by a chain, there has i been !?,tl7 doM" killed, ami the city iim paid fcl.iWS 60 | for the destruction of Mich auiuutls, being 60c. a head 4 The greuter portion of this inoney was paid to boys Naval Officer?We learn from a reliable nourne r that < oi n< lius liogardus.
