The \(UB from Enropt. The advices received by the America, are of a character both important and exciting. The intelligence of most interest relates to the renewal of insurrectionary movements in Iruland;but the latest telegraphic accounts given in yesterday's Herald, are of so vague a nature as to leave us in 1. ? . ? ?,u? ?? IIIUIII auuui micuici IU iryniu noiu^ aa JIICIC- | ly of a sectional and agrarian complexion, or as the recommencement of a national revolution, springing from the combined causes of starvation and misrule. It is ijiiite possible it is merely a rtvolt of the peasantry, confined to a certain portion of the country, where the influence of British bayonets lias not so strong an ascendancy as in other places; but the hot haste with which troops were being moved from one point to another?the evident anxiety that prevailed, notwithstanding the studied efforts to conceal it, and the incidents alleged, even by the London journals, to have taken place, seem to indicate that the rising is something more than the mere attack of a tumultuary body of peasantry on a few police. Two things are said to have taken place, (and the allegation is rather confirmed than denied by the ministerial presses,) that would encourage the hope that there is some organized movement afoot. We reler to the destruction of the bridge of Garney to arrest the march of the military, and the capture, by the insurgents, of some pieces ol cannon from Curraghmore, the residence of the Marquis of Waterford, after a siege ol the premises. There are contradictory rumors as to the presence of Mr. Doheny and Mr. O'Gorman, junior, among the insurgents, and the statements arc so vague that it is impossible to arrive at any definite conclusion. Whatever be the real nature of this movement, it is evident that the English journals were terribly alarmed by it; and by some it may be taken as evidence that the a Hair has been more serious han those papers are willing to acknowledge* hat after the very larcical issue of the last revolt, 'hey should permit themselves to manifest such obviouB alarm. General McDonald, it appears, deemed it necessary to proceed to Clonmel, the scene of the disturbances, with two regiments of infantry. This i>erson, however, from the ridiculous display of pusillanimity he exhibited at the capture ol Mr. William Smith O'Erien, is one not unlikely to get frightened out of his propriety by the slightest rumors of insurrection, and to let his fears magnify reaping-hooks into pike-heads, and a few starving peasants into an army of blood*hirsty rebels. The next arrival will clear away all doubt, and until then, we shall be somewhat puzzled in what aspect lo regard the movement. We are inclined to the belief, however, that the insurrectionary spirit will continue to manifest itself on every available occasion, and that on the first favoiable opportunity, a blow may be struck which will so maim the power of the dominant country in Ireland, that for her own sake she mus1 at length consent to a separation. The Irish papers represent this aflair as of no importance; while, on the other hand, the minis" icrmi juuiuais arein ui?|?u?cu iu inability 11 inio the commencement of a momentous revolution. This paradox is easily solved, by the fact that ap. prehensions are entertained by the Irish press that every such movement will tend to make the proceedings against Smith O'Brien, and the other prisoners, more severe than they otherwise would be, and the English journals, by alarming the property-owners, who always compose the Irish juries, with to secure the conviction of the accused. This will explain the contradictory nature of these accounts. In France things remain mostly in itatu (juoThe star of Cavaignac is still in the ascendant, although it is thought the socialists will triumph in the coming elections in Paris. Austria has, not without deep chagrin, accepted the mediation of France and England; and Italy is still convulsed. | 'harles Albert is preparing for another campaign. The Neapolitans have invaded Sicily with ten or twelve thousand men, and it is entirely impossible 10 foretell what a day may bring forth in those distracted States. Sicily has, it is understood, claimed the interposition of England. The affairs of Germany are at present all contused; but it cannot be doubted that the States o^ that great Empire will settle down at last into a I f- J ...

Austin.?It will be seen in another column, that the second jury in the case ol J< tin S. Aastin have frfund a verdict,somewhat unfavorable toward" him, in finding that Timothy Shea came to his death by a pistol shot from the hands ol John S. Austin, while in a row and fight. I pon conversing with the Coroner, this verdict, we are informed, amounts to nothing more than a case of mam laughter, and nosMblv. wtien taken b?-f<>rr h grand jury, it will result into a justifiable homicide. It is h i?etfettly bailable cim, and Mr. Austin will be liberated Irom custody to-day. .Security to the innoisnt o|af20,000 stood ready lant night to bail hiin, but the Coroner thought it more prudent lo allow the matter to rest until to-day, when the necessary bonds will be entered into. Mr. Austin remain* at present very feeble, and confin d tub ? brd. trem the .-fKTt* of the injuries. The New Constitution.?Tiu Eucchum by i he Pxoruc.?Various were ths opinions hazarded Doth previous to ami since the new constitution was framed, in regard to the effects it waa likely to produce for good or for evil on our social, moral, and political condition. For a year before the Eessioti of the convention which formed it, the fiiends and supporters of the alterations and amendments suggested to be made in the old constitution, brought tbun before the public through the press, ai d discussed them with considerable torce and ability. They attempted to prove,from the irrrease ol population, the extension of commerce and manufactures, and the varinas and ('(implicated relations emanating from those new influences, together with the growing intelligence ol the people, that to give them lull scope and effect, it became absolutely necessary that the contemplated changes should be made. When the committee appointed by the convention had prepared the draft of the amended constitution, the subject was then brought before that body in a more tangible sha|>e, its merits and de i i a_I_ i ?: 11.. J:^ ments were more tiauoraieiy huh |h ncucaiiyuidcussed, and finally it was sent to the people for their approbation ; at their primary election they adopted it, and l>y that act have affixed to it the seal of their approbation, and so far it has worked well. On the other hand, those who opposed this new order of things, (and they were neither few n?r contemptible,) pretended the worst conseqnenccs from the continous innovations (as they termed them) made on our political institutions?they caught up the old and absolute theory of the monarchists of Europe, that popular governments are the parents ot lucuon ana intrigue; ana tiencetney argued, that the bands of society would be loosened, the arm of justice paralyzed, and the whole frame of our State government overturned ; but they should have born in mind, that those changes were merely experimental?that both our State and general governments were experiments, and successful ones too ? and that, by them, the important fact has been fully demonstrated, that an educated and enlightened people, are capable, through their representatives of self government. We have seen that a republic, in the true sense of that term, has existed here for upwards of seventy years; and during that long period, amidst the whirlwind ol faction and party strife, no citizen ever has raised his voice or his nrm against it. The alacrity with which American citizens rallied under the standard of their country, during the two lajt wars in which we were engaged with England and Mexico, and the recklessness and daring with which they all ventured, and many of them sacrificed their lives, in maintaining the honor of the country, is pretty strong evidence, if any were wanting, of their de votion to republican principles, und the value they attach to a free and enlightened system of government. On this point the London Times of the 4th inst., in speaking of the new French Constitution^ says:? What, however, is more commonly expected from a national constitution if the precise form of government which is to cive and execute laws in a country ; and the ingenuity of all preceding legislators has been employed to frame or preserve the nice balance of several independent powers, to as to maintain the deliberative gravity of the Legislature, to avoid the precipitate decision of momentous questions by the concurrence of various branches of society, and to invest tbe executive power with a due amount of authority and dignity. That was the study of the wise founders of the great American republic, the only men who ever yet succeeded in concert in such a task ; and to the lasting honor of tbe American people no rash voice haB yet been raised to demand alterations in a constitution. which has upon the whole accomplished its principal objects, and fostered the growth of a prosperous and powerful nation. For all these purposes, however, tbe new French constitution might be included in one article, in reality, the whole political authority of France is to be vested in one permanent Assembly, composed of 750 me tubers, chosen by universel suffrage, aiid in every respect constant and absolute power. This is the whole affair. The President is abo to be chosen by the direct and universal suflrage ol thu nation, but he is armed with no prerogatives to control the emnipotence of the Assembly ; and his actual power is imperceptibly small, except in tbe exercise of the patronage of the State. We find that, under our form of government, iweHtv miliums of uennle eniov a lunrer share of personal liberty than any other people, ancient or modern, ever before enjoyed?that life and projierty is more secure; agriculture,commerce,manufactures and wealth, and whatever else conduces o the physical, moral, and intellectual improvement of mankind, more widely and generally diffused?our people better educated, more intelligent, more happy and contented, than any other people, and our government the most stable and secure of any at present in existence. The convulsed und chaotic state ot the governments of the old world, when contrasted with the good order, contentment, and happiness that reign amongst ourselves, fully bear us out in what we have said on this subject, and proves the value of our institutions, and their adaptation to the wants and requirements of the people. The oppenents of the new constitution, having such an array of facts and arguments opposed to their views, ought to have paused and at least given it a fair trial before they found fault, or predicted evil. They should have watched its operations; and if they iound it did not answer the end for which it was designed, they should have pointed out its defects, and be prepared with a remedy. The constitution that uas adopted by this State after the revolution, guaranteed to the i poi?1p flip riflrht of rptnnHpl int/ nnH nmpiwlinrr it. They have frequently done bo; and those who op. posed the present changes, hid abundant opportunity of judging of the results former alterations had produced on the commonwealth; they, therefore, ought to have shown what these results were, how they opeiuted, and where the danger lay. If they could not d<> that, and it was pretty clear they could not, then it was incumbent on them to sltow that the present are different from the former, tnd peculiarly open to censure. It was said, however, and it was the only objection that had any substance in it, that throwing the election of judges into the hands of the people* and shortening th? term of office, would endanger U?e;r independence, because the people were not comj>etent to judge of the qualifications of men aspiring to thos* high offices; that men of eminence in their profession would not seek or accept of judicial situations; and that those only of an infe" rior grade, who had mixed themselves up in poll tics, and would be likely to yield to passion and party prejudices, could have any chance ol being elected. The short answer to those objections is this?pievious to the late changes the people elected the governor, (as they do now,) und the governor appointed the judges out of the majorityjhat elected him. Where, then, is the difference 1 After all, the people are the source of power, and governors and rulers are only the conduits through which it is distributed ; but, independently of this, nnr system of education is ho perfect, and its blessings so generally diffused through the State, that the intelligence und virtue of the people are sufficient guaranties that, in the exercise of the privileges conferred < n them by the constitution, they will select no men for the judiciary but those who have their confidence and esteem. That they have done so we need only refer to the last electien for udges, by which it appears that in the first district all the old judges, (with two additional ones. rendered necessary by the lute change:*,) were elected ; the result of that election is n compli* nimit not only to those judges, but to the people themselves, because it proves conclusively that the latter, through the blessings conferred on theim by an enlighted and liberal education, are fully co/nl>rtei)t to the honest and faithful performance of (heir electoral duties, and that the former, by a long course ol honorable and upright conduct in the discharge of their judicial functions, have tecup d for themselves (he eetcem and approbation of their cnntilurnta. .1 OstlC' H llurlbut and Kdwaid" are the tWP new judgea, and we believe the public, generally, wUi bur tesUMoay u* lUeir 1 high standing and moral worth. Upon the whole, we think the last amendment in the constitution were required, to keep pace 1 with progress and the spirit of the age, j&nd that j they will work well. In details there may be, and doubtless are, defects; but when they are practically understood, there is a power vested either in i the judiciary or in the legislature, or perhaps in j both, to neutralize the evil, or apply a direct remedy. __ Theatrical and Musical. r**k Theatre ?There tu a good audience at this magnificent theatre, last night, to witness the flrst appearance of Mr and Mrs Gilbert The celebrated oomedj of-'The KWala'' was performed, in which Mr. "Gilbert appeared as Sir Anthony Absolute, and really the cha" racter was sustained In admirable style, especially in that Fcene where his rage issoexoited against the want of obedienco on the part of his ron, Captain Absolute, (Mr. Dawson,) in refusing a wife of his father's oheioe. In nvorv llna thii nllsvaAtar was n^rf^ctlv anntainarl nd elicited the warmest applause Mra. Oilbert, m Mrs. Malaprop. moit perfectly personated the egotistic and tyrannical aunt, who laid prostrate every thing like good language. She is admirably adapted to the character, and fully sustained the great celebrity which It has been her fortune most justly to enjoy. They were both, on their first appearance, loudly welcomed. and throughout the piece were constantly applauded. Mr. Chapman appeared as Aeres, and performed the part of the aged gallant in his usual unsurpasred style ; and in the aot of the contemplated duel showed all the ;ear and terror which tho character comprises. Miss Rose Telbin sustained the charaoter of Lydia Languish, and was warmly receiTed. The piece went off with great appluuie plainly showing the appreciation, on the part of the audience, of the merits of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert, and the others engaged in the parfornaaoa i of the piece. The entertainment concluded with the laughable tarce of "Turning the Tables." On Monday evening the Mocplaisir trovpe will re-appear in the magnificent ballet of "Kfmeralda," which is suffl- ( dentin itself to till the house to overflowing. The energetic proprietor, Mr. Hamblin, is determined that the Park shall not be surpassed by any theatre; and from the present attractions ottered, which will be fol- . lowed by the best talent that can be produoed, there is no doubt but it will still he the Park Theatre, the character of which, for magnificence, and beauty of entertainment, is known throughout the theatrical world. If you wish to be delighted, go to the Hark. Bowery Theatric.?Mr. Hamblin appeared as Mac" betb. last evening. This is one of his favorite parts we Drut've, anu De eaaoieu it nneiy. we nave frequently noticed his performance of the Thane, and now hare only to add thut bis conc?ption of Ihe part ia strictly in accordance with the ideas of all the best commentators on Shaksp?are. The tragedy was well got up. Mrs. Winstanley's Lady Macbeth, was a most excellent piece of acting, and the mus cal portion of the play was well done. Miss Mary Taylor, as Hecate, appeared to much nuvantage. The n*>w ballet concluded the evening's performance. Signora Ciocoa has become an immenserfavorite with the public, and her appearance is nightly the signal for great applause, supported as she is by Signor Neri, and Mr. U. W. Smith, two of the most graceful dancers on the stnge. The ballets in which they appear, are produced under peculiarly advantageous circumstances, and that class of amusements is thus brought out at the Bowery with all the eclat p< ssible. During the coming week the entertainments will be peculiarly interesting, as that splendid composition of Shakspeare's. "uonolanus," ia to be played, Mr. Hamblin taking the principal part. The ballet attractions will likewise bo of the highest order. Broadway Theatre.?Mr. Collins appeared last night, on the occasion of his benefit, in three of his favorite and most admired parts, ills Patrick O'Plenipo, alone, is sufficient to fill ahouse. Indeed, if we were to institute a comparison between the different parts Mr. Collins undertakes, we should be obliged in strict I justice to award him more merit in such parts as Sir Patrick and tbe Irish Attorney, than in 11 Teddy the Tiler," and " Paddy Kooney," and yet his O'ltafferty in 41 Born to Uood Luck," is one of his best parts, and with his - Teddy Malowney," we can find no posi- j tiTe fault. IiU toni/B are really ?xcellent, and in this i particular, he surpasses all Irish comedians we have j ever seen. His voice is rich, mellow, and well cultiva ted. and he gives his lri.-h songs with a hearty raciness, which elicits the warmest applause. Several novelties witl be produced nrxt week, amoug them, '* llory O'More." "King O'Neil," the " Soldier of Fortune,'' and several others. National Theatre.?We were not surprised at find, ing a full house here lasf evening, as there is never any thing else at the National cow-a-days ; a slimly attended houte, in ked, is a thing which has nevar been teen here since Chanfrau took the helm. The interesting drama of " Theresa"' was tbe first piece. Mr. Chanfrau taking the partofCarwin. Mr. C., by his j performance of thix and many other parts, proves con- ' cluslvely that his talents as an actor are not merely | confined to the enacting of Mose. though he perforata so admirably in this famous part that it is somewhat difficult to imagine that he can so entirely divest him- j self of all the attributes of tbe b'hoy, as he really does, 1 when playing other parts; and herein consists much of I the excellence of his Mote. It is so naturally done that one forgets that it Is merely the actor's art, and not tbe true Mose, on the stage. But to seo Chanfrau as Carwin. DonCu-sar de Baxan, the Golden Kaimer. and other parts which he occasionally takes, dispels the idea of his being only able to act in one 1 part. We trust that, during the reason, Mr. C. will , frequent y apjxar on his stage in those parts which h? can so well play . and as for Mose. there is no getting ! out cf that?the public will never cttase being delighted with his acting of it. The " Mysteries and Miseries" went oil with the usual ielal, and also the remainder of the performance. Several novelties will be produced next week. Nii?l*'s. Astor Place.?Tbe " Comedy of Krpors" was played here last night, to a crowded and fashionable audience. Mr. H. Placid* and Mr. T. Placlde personated the two Dromo'g, and it is un necessary to say that this laughable pieoe was received with great . applause. The house was kept in a continued roar of j laughter from the laughable and inextricable dilflcul- | ties arising from the one being taken for the other. I 1 he respective parts were very creditably performed, and evinced great judgment and accurate perception ol the characters in thls piece. The subordinate parts were played with considerable talent, and the whole piece vent off in a most brilliant style. The piece of ' Lsed I'd'' followed. in which Miss Dickinson acquitted herself to the complete satisfaction of the audience. The splendid array of talent at this houae, with its excellent and varied performances presented, have , made it the most fashionable resort of the beauty and fashion of tbe city ; and tbe past exertions of the , enterprising proprietor are only a foreshadowing of ] the successful future which Mr Nlblo is certain to ' i secuie for tMi place of entertainment. Bcrtos's Theatre. Chambers Street.?" Dombey and Son" and " Foor I'illlcoddy," a drama aud a farce, each of unequalled excellence in their kind, and un- i surpast-ed for beauty and effect, were, last night, rendered the source of indescribable delight and reiterated . roar* of lacghter to a crowded house, by the inimitable < acting, the extraordinary comic power*. and tke won- I dul'ul versatility of pbl/. of the incomparable Burton. 1 To-morrow evening. Captain Cuttle will re-appear in a new piece?" The rapture of Captain Cuttle." To 1 pee this favorite of the town crowd*, bo doubt, will ! rurh to Burton's incomparable theatre. Uerma* Baisd.?We have been informed of the arrival of a sew and accomplished musical band from Germany, under the leadership of Herr Carl Sensehow. \ Of the skill and talents of this band there can be no doubt. They are attested to by our minister at Ber- ' lln, the Hon. A. J. Donelson, who pronounces the band to deserve, in a high degree, the respect uud patronage of the public. Mr. Bancroft, oar sinister at the court of St. James, also joins in the same recommendation These are Indeed high and flattering I introductions to the connoisseurs of the new world ; but the beat is to oome yet?the sure test of their excellence and fame Is guaranteed by the simgle faot that Niblo, the hero of excellent selections, the discoverer of whatever is great for the stage and beautiful for the theatre?Nlblo has engaged the band ! What more Is wanting to assure the public that, as Niblo only looks out for the best, the grandest, and most excellent in everything, we are about to hear the best, the grandest, and most excellent of bands ? Mairick Straroich. ?Thi- eminent artist has lately published several beautiful pieces of musio; among them Is a mtrit, called The Magie Bell." whloh Is considered an excellent composition.

Steamboat Accident and Dreadful Lom of Life?Confirmation ot tlic Barnliig of the Steamboat Uollal* on Lake Huron. Buffalo, Sept. 30, 1&48. The supposed loss of the steam propeller Goliah on Lake Huron, hence from the upper lakes, is believed here to be tally confirmed. Remnants of a wreck, having semblance to the Goliah, have been discovered on the Canadian shore of Lake Huron; and the belief universally prevails that the vessel took fire, and, there being a large quantity of gunpowder on board, the destruction of the vessel must have been completed by the explosion of the powder. The charred wreck of a large propeller was driven ashore at Pine Point, above Goodrich, Canada West, on Wednesday last, Sept. 27. A yawl boat also came on shore, but it was not ut all burned, while many of the wooden hoops by which the sails are run up and down, appeared to have been cut with an axe. Three hundred barrels of Hour, with an immense quantity of caudles in boxes, and boxes of raisins ; kegs of blasting powder, packed in oats; together with many other articles of merchandize, all bearing the evidences of having been shipped on board th<' Goliah, were also picked up along the shore. Many of the packages were di. rected to the Saut St. Marie, and the Meden Mining Company.

IIavama, Sept. 16,1818. 1 will inform you that the steamer Falcon ar" rived to-day at 2 o'clock, P. M., and put in quarantine, because the did not briug a bill of health irom Savannah. However, she will sail this evening for New Orleans, and her passengers are at Mr. Bellot's Hospital for seven days. Captains of sailing vessels, or steamers, ought to be very careful with their bills of health, from the last place which they have left. Nothing new for the present. I have seen in the Herald of the 26th ult., that the Crescent City had arrived here on the 19th of August; and left for New York on the same day. It is a great mistake. She arrived on the 18tn, left on the 18th. I see in the Centain's r?*oort from New Orleans to this place, that he had left en the 15th, at 4 P. M.. giving the distance ran ever}- 24 hours, of the 16th, 18th, and 19th, and not of the 17ih. that is where the mistake is. According to that log, the Crescent City would have made her passage from hereto New York in four days? which is not so. She left here on the 18th, and arrived at New York on the 23d?five days passage. Several vessels have arrived here dismasted. The bark Lynda, which left Philadelphia 22 days ago, has not yet arrived. We feel very uneasy about her. From Havana.?By the arrival here, yesterday, of the steamer Falcon, we have received the Faro Industrial to the 16th instant. On the 12th instant, the Captain General, Count Alcoy, issued a decree, reducing the government dues on horned cattle. The Fato states that it will produce a greatly beneficial effect on the whole population, by encouraging the raising of stock, and cheapening very materially the price of an important article ol food.?N.

The Colonial Bank having now the entire banking business of the colony, is supposed, with good reason, to be doing a sound and profitable business. There is a good demand for horses of all kinds, particularly good roadsters. From Mexico.?By an arrival here, yesterday, from Vera Cruz, we have received El Monitor Rtjmblrrano, from the city of Mexico, to the 22d ult., inclusive, just two days later intelligence tfian that last received and published by us. These papers contain little new or interesting. Profound tranquillity reigns throughout the republic, with the exception of the Sierra, in the department of i^an Luis Potosi, where the Indiana are disaffected. The Governor of the latter finds it difficult to procure fundi to pay the troops on foot to extinguish the trouble ir? the mountains. Paiedes is stated to be among them. The Governor of Duihngo has made a requisition on the Supreme Government, Iwr a portion of the standing army, to protect the frontier against the incursions of the wild Indians. Not a word do these papers contain about th? leported formidable prorations of the buffalo hunters, for the invasion and dismemberment of Mexico.?A*i ?/ Orlcavi Uelta, Sept. 21.

That body has likewise published a resolution declaring the inability of tlie colony to raise the < ustomaiy amount for thu year 1849, and their determination to raise no supplies beyond the provision for the public debt, unltss enabled to make adequate retrenchment in the ex|ienditure of the Island.

It will be recollected that General Coombs was compelled, by indisposition, to stop in the middle ol hiB stump speech at the wh u ratification meeting, at Vauxhall Garden, <>n Wednesday evening last, and deter finishing u to another time. Having iullv recovered, it was announced that he would deliver the remaining instalment at the same place, which he did, last night, to an audience not quite so large as hi-urd him on the former occasion, but yet of respectable size.

In refneuce to the question of free soil.

Again, his idea that no mau is crcated? j ' that all men are born equal, he says is preposterous, i for only children are born ; that tuere never was but f one man that was born, and his natnu wa< Aditn. an 1 old fellow who died some time a#'}.

Now, fellow-citizens, On this autyect, | tbe free soil question. I think there oan be no difficulty among whigs.

I shall never lorget them. The tirst speaker I heard was a . good looking, fat, rotund, rosy looking mant from this city?I forget hie uaoie ? who got up and ground ont what we term in thewesta regular built fourth-of-Julystar-tplangled-banner times-that-tried-men-souls- Jefferson-und-liberiy-spi ech?(gieat laughter) ?making . gestures to suit the b gh flutmgs. (Laughter.) The 1 next speaker who delivered hi* sentiments was named I Nye, and the conveuiioo said to him "Coma Nye to us." He was not u member of the convention, but they took a vote and elected him When he finished, i an old liberty man in tbe crowd could not contain himielf any longer So he got up and announced biimeif as brother Abel Orvilie, or Owen, or some nam* of that kind You can find it by referring to the published proceedings of the convention. And he said 41 Brethren, 1 am a perfrctionUt minister of the gospel, . and bare been all my life warring against slavery; and I do feel to-night, by tbe joining of the.-e conventions, that a union of the saints has taken place in Ohio." (Much laughter.) Well, it struck me as a very curioua convention. He further stated that he hoped to sea tbe time when a great fence would be built around the slave States, into which ail those who sympathised with slavery would be driven, and then that flre and brimstone would be thrown in, and the whole batch burned up. (Laughter) And I thought to myself, if my friend, Mr. Van Buren, entertained the same principles tbat he did a few years ago, he would be one of those who would be driven inside of the fttnee, and then he would bave a right to say truly ' our sufferings is intoUrable." (Tremendous cheering.) Fellow citizens, new to be Berious. On this slavery question, I bave given you my opinion. We don't claim anything beyond the constitution. IVt like to know you In the North as brethren and friends, and to treat you as such?even as far as little Maine. Uod blesa her, whom we were rea4y to Ight for, when John Bull threatened to take away tomo of her tall trees, without owning them and without paying for them. Old Kentucky was ready to sou l a lot of her eons to Maine on that ocoasion. While I say this, therefore, I shall say to our friends the abolitionists, if they come to us with kindness and love, wo wilt r< eeir? them In kindness; but if ever they come there to brealc the constitution, to shed tba blood of our wires and children, to stir up a servile war, when tbey come in this way. and knock at our doors, tbey will and us at home. We hope the glorious Union of these glorious States will continue; and it will be so. if they treat us kindly. May Ood dispose of this <iuestion in :he way which reemt to Him best. In referenco to Mr. Van Buren, allow me to make a tingle remark. Vou remember Mr. Clay's letter from Kalelgh. You recollect Mr. Van Buren's letter came about the same time, and that they were both opposed to the annexation of Texas. Yon recollect, too. when the battle of Pexai came off, In Kentucky. South Carolina, Delaware, Georgia, and other Southern States, we tbw North in fighting for the rights of the North against the annexation of Texas, in violation of the constitution. and when the time of trial came, Mr Van Buren and bis friends left us in the ditch lie disagreed with Mr. Polk and agreed with Mr. Clay; but when the proper time came he fought against Mr. Clay and with Mr Polk. (Applause) I thought thU mudb du? to Mr. Van Buren. I administered on the go >ds and chattels of Men Cars, the other evening, and proved, I believe that he was politically Insolvent. Some may suppose that I was too severe on him, but 1 have no ill feeling against either him. or Mr. Van Buren Ai for John Bnren, I think him much of a game oock. (Laughter.), 1 dont mean to deal the private cha fdcuTi oi men. ana i wont, out i iqidk vaai ibu puDHO acts of men who stand in the position whU'h they occupy ate legitimately subjects of animadversion. Having thus given some reasons why I think the whigs eant go for Mr Van Buren, allow me to Jo what la much more pleasant to me, and that is to speak of an old friend) whose acquaintance I formed som- thirty years ago, 1 mean General Zttchary Taylor.
