At the last ratification meeting v held at Yauxhall Garden, the victorious battle of j Buena Vitta was fouuht; andEthe Santa Anna of 1, the whig party, shambling up to the platform to 0 make his adhesion, surrendered bag and baggage, '] brown bread and galvanism included. The Clay ti bolters have been all conquered at last, and the s principal leaders have given in their adhesion to 0 the nomination of Gen. Taylor, or gone over si- n lently to the support of Gen. Cass. The events of n the last few days in this metropolis have been 0 fertile in farce, philosophy, and politics. Greely, n the brigadier general of the ultra whig wing, entertaining the wildest notions on society, govern- 0 ment, religion and beefsteaks, has made his f; speech, and written his editorial, in favor of Gen. g Taj lor and his election; and truly he and his oppo- o sition might toini the elements of a very attractive r exhibition, &t sixpence a sight, m the free States- c The victory of General Taylor, resolute, without ? any pledgee of magnitude, over the whig party, is ( probably as great a victory as that of Monterey or { Buena Vista over the Mexicans. For years ,'ast the w hig leaders and whig journalists have exhibited as mui h obstinacy, and an equal amount of ' thick-headedness, as ever was observed in the Mexican government or the Mexican leaders on ^ the other side of the line on the Kio Grande. The ( whigs, grumbling and growling at every pore, '' have scrambled up to the support ol Gen. Taylor in r a certain fashion. Daniel Webster lias made his " speech; David Graham has put fortii his pronunciumento; Horace Greeley, with his speech and $ editorial, mixed in equal pioportions, like " his mush and milk, and all the rest of the blundering whig leaders, have followed in the same way, p arrayed in the same habiliments, and grumble out c their declaration to support Gen. Taylor f?r the ^ presidency, although they do not like the man or 11 his principles, such of them as tfeey know, or the 11 mode in which he was nominated. Well, *ho cares, among the great mass of the 1 independent people of tnis country, for the grum* 1 bling and growling whig leaders and journalists ! f If they bring a little support to Gen. Taylor, in the 1 North, they will neutralize il to the same extent in r the i>outh, by driving voters from his support in ' that region of country. ?uch speeches as those c delivered by Daniel Webster, and Greeley, and 0 Bott6?and, we might even add, the farago of absurdity put lorth by<<en. Combs?can give but little c help to the cause cf such a man as .Gen. Taylor 11 who has been put forth as the representative of the c good,Eound, t>inr>!e, ana sensible j>ortion of the American ]>eople, and not as tbe representative of c cliques or factions, to carry out certain meas ires fur P the advantage o( particular ind.viduals, either in s the government, or in the legislation ol CongressIt Gen. Taylor is ;o be elected President of the 11 T. njtrri States. he wjJJ reach tliaf Popt of eminence r in spite of the blunders, the absurdities, t:iO ',d<j a i?eai-ures, and narrow principles, of the modern whig party, us it is called. Evenin giving him his ^ srppou, the galvanized squash could not help mix* c ing with his assistance, a threat of Tylerizing the r< hero of Buena Vista, if lie should have an opinion 11 ?1 his own, when he reaches the White House- '' These threats will amount to little, when o!d Kougli 1 ar.d Heady reaches his destination at Washington- r( The positiin of the respective candidates' t( and the state of the Presidential contest, are be- t| f;ini;ing to develojK.* their features to the country. s On Taylor was fust nominated by the intellec- j, 'iial and indei?endent |>oilion of the American j?eo P>, who never v* ould own tlie authority of clique of tpeculators in legislation or in office. I\r a 11 long lime it was doubtful which of the two orga- v nized factions into which the country has been for ^ fifty jears divided, would take hold of him. At 8 first th? democratic party showed symptoms in that direction; but, in <onsequenc of the supe- a nor tactics of their po.ticians and leaders, who were opposed to him. he was ousted, and his no" u mination at the Baltimore Convention was defeat" 'I ed. The strength of his position, the popularity of N his character, and the strong feeling exhibited to- ? wards him by th? ]>eopIe of the whole country, o persuaded a certain portion of the whig leaders to take him up, in order to try if they could not e!? ct d a candidate that they might call their own, once 1 in a quarter ol a centurv. at least. But the whiz ! ! I arty can't elect him, and all the noise and confu- ? su n that has been created during the last few f wn kh in thi- region, by certain troubled spirits. f amount to little or nothinu, as allectine the gene- j ral result. 0?-n< ral Taylor's chances for the Pre- 1 eidency can be but little aid?-d or damaged by ' either the support or opposition of Webster, Greeley, or liotts., in tli* way in which they ' h*ve put their effort! forth. We ha\< hoi ? b that < ?? n Taylor will l? elected J'reeidt nt, in consequence of the short space of time J that will intervene between thisand the seventh of * November. We are not certain, however. If J the pJettK-'ji did jiottoiuc on until sja monthsheace, i ( capacity, ud selfishness of the whig leaders | and journalists, would defeat their candidate long before the arrival of that period. The briefness, therefroe, oi the period between this and t' e day of election, is the only ground left to us on whieh to hope that Geo. Taylor will be elected, in spite of the unpopularity of the parties who have recently come into his sui> ort. The measures and principles of tliese parties are manufactured by clique of speculators in the large cities, who pos. bess no sentiments in common with the American people, out of those cities, either i;i foreign <>r donx'fctic affaire. After the adoption of the conetitutiflh, and the second presidency of Washingt?>n, the people divided themselves into two parties. The federalists of that day organized their suppoiUrs on similar principles and measures, and pretty much from the same source? which wi re the cause of the defeats of the whig party tor the last twenty-five years, with the single exception of ( Jen. H irrisou's < Inchon. The democratic parly has always possessed more sentiment and more sympathy with the middling and lower classes of the people, than the federalists, did in the early part of tin- present centurv. The same features still distinguish the democratic party; and in al' popular contests they manage to out-general the whigs, and to secure the masses of the people, out i f the large cities, particularly in the Western and Southern States. The whig journalists and leaders ot the North assume too much the position of foreign agents, foverned by commercial and specuative parties, under the intlnence ot Kuropean inte. cms ana nence mewuni ?>i Bympauiyaiwaystelttor those cliquesof politicians, among the great aggregate masses of the people throughout the country We are in hopes, however, that the brief space of time allowed by law to conduct this canvass, will be sufficient to prevent the wing leaders fiom defeating General Taylor, and that is our princtpi' hope ol his success. As to the threats put forth that the whig party would?it General Taylor does not bind to the cliques of the whig leadcif?Tylerize him, we are perfectly willing to takeourchances of any party, or any clique of men. Tylerising the old hero of Huena Vista, w hen he gets into the White House. It is more likely that the boot will be on the other leg, and that the heel of it will be an the neck of those who would invade his constitutional rights as chief magistrate of a free people. For California.?The golden river of California which has caused so much excitement here and lsewliere, by the value of its pebbles, and the rich species oi fishing with which it abounds, has been, ir will be, of some sei vice to the merchants in this tgion. Aheady, a stir of life is clearly perceptible inning the enterprising, both in this city and in 3c6ton, who are deteimined not to be negligent of he advantages offered in trade by the recent dis" :oveiies. The market of California for every saleable artile, as is understood by letters and commercial eports, presents a profitable field for speculation, fhich, by the way, is not likely to be overlookedn this port there are now loading for California no ?fs than six vessels, in addition, we believe, to one >r two at Boston, bound for the same destination. Three of these are chartered by the government' o transport troops and stores; and one, the teamer California, which leaves to day, destined s a regular mail packet between Callao and the (louth of the Oregon river, touching at the intermediate ports. The remaining ships are loading n private account, and will sail during this lonth. The impetus thus given to trade and commerce, n the noith-west coast, will tend to increase the icilities for travel, and promote the spirit of emi. ration to the shoves of our new territory. The old excitement, like all others of a similar chaacter that have preceded it, may die a sudden leath* but the strong inducements otherwise offer mi to tne mechanic and the tarmer, by the richness )f the soil and the healthful location of the country, ire not, by such an event, in the least diminished. Intelligence from Veneziela.?By the brig tfary H. Chappell, from La Guayra and Porto Ca ello, which sailed on the 9th Sept., accounts have een received that the authorities and people of La luayra were on the alert, expecting an attack rom the squadron of General Paez. The squadon of the government passed La Guayra on the .")th of August, to attack the fleet of Paez. The house of Ilellyer Co. was robbed of 1,'400 the night before Captain S. left Porto Caello. We are also in receipt of El Patriota, a Caracas aper, of the 26th August. The chief topic disused in this paper, is the coming election for 'ice President of the republic, which is to be held a November neit, we believe. Antonio S. Guznan is one of the candidates for this office, and, hould he be elected, the revolution, or rather proracted resistance of General Paez's party to the xisting government, will be probably put an j i.?? 1 i.i?* uu iu. 11 mm uc iciiiciiiucicu mm iruiman, was he individual whose pardon, or rather the comnutation of whose sentence, for alledged treason, >y President Monagas, was the immediate cause >1 the present outbreak: now, should the majority >f the people, through the ballot box, elect him to lie office of Vice President, it will be proof con. lusive that Monagas' course in that matter was i accordance with the will of his fellow citizens, onsequently Pae/.'s party will have nothing left ) light about. On the contrary, should he not be 'ected, a long and protracted struggle, extending robably to the end of Monagas' official term' ome two years and a half more, may be expected. Of the situation of affairs at Maracaibo,we believe io authentic accounts have been teceived?all is umor. The last direct accounts from that place, re to the 10th August. At tl\at date Monagas' rooj>s held the townj Paez'e forces occupied tne ort San Cailoe, distant a few miles from the ity, and his fleet were blockading the Gulf. It is ally lamentable that such a magnificent country s Venezuela is by nature, should be so harmssed y these civil commotions. m:u.Mi'DA?intelligence irom liermuda lias been fceived to the 24th of September. t'aptainFosir, of the schooner May Flower, was informed lat Mr. Mitchel, the patriot, has been suffering i verely from sickness, but was recovering.

Austin, in reference to the erdict rendered by the Coroner's Jury, and that ail would be taken by Coroner Walters tor his ppearance when called upon to answer. Accordingly Mr. Walters yesterday set the mount of bail at $10,000, and trie following genemen : Win B. Moffat, Augustus Purday, Lmanel B. ilart, Benj. Wood and Benj.

'44. irg character are already afloat, ia all qaartera, I concerning the new operatic troupt organized un- J 1 der the auspices, and managed oy the sublime genius, of Mr. Fry. If th musical campaign of J those artists commences n this style, itnv ry probable that it will end as it did last year?not much to the credit ot th*' managers, in any way in which it can be contemplate d. Sum#- of the runiois recently given out, appear to be more discreditable to the artists than to the manager. On inquny we find there is very little truth in those representations. Th t attempt to impute u troubletome diS|M ?utioa to Trulli, is, we learn, without the slight)loundation. Indeed, it would appear that if any trouble has broken out am mg the troupe, it has principally originated in the incompetency ol the manager, who is new in his position, and who cannot be expected to under^tund the materials which he has undertaken to manage. Mr. Fry, who bus undertaken the management of this n**w nnmnnnv kua vi>ru U n. !?nfTrolian , .. .J or of artists, beyond that? fa mere spectator, who tits in the pit, enjoys the music, and criticises thtalents of the respective performers. Ilia Baid, however, that he is merely an afjent of some parties behind the curtain, who advanced money for the purpose of organizing the troupe, and that the wljole thing is but a speculation, th>' investment of capital, in th?- same way as a Wall street broker speculates in stocks. It this be the case, it is very probab'e that the value of the company and all sense of propriety may be sacrificed to the simple purpose of grasping after a little money, in order to make a dividend. We are sorry to hear these things said of the new troupe, but we much fear that there is a good deal of foundation for those tumors. The attempt nude last year in this line, ended in an abortion from similar causes. There were nominal managers, and committee men in the back ground, who managed everything, without rule or order, and all the mismanagement of whom, the ostensible managers had to shoulder and be responsible for. The coisequence was, that Sanquirico and Patti became the sea; egoats of a clique of would be managers in a dark room behind the curtain, who knew nothing about ;trtists or art. If Mr. Fry merely takes the place of Sanquirieo and l'atti, and is under the secret influence of those who have advanced the funds, we are much afraid that n similar result wiil take place before the termination of the approaching season. It is certain that during ttic last rehearsal a great deal of bad feeling was developed, compounded in equal quantities with music and harmony. We hope, however, that a little prudence and good sense in all quarters, will prevent the enterprise from falling to the ground before the regular termination of the season. We understand that "Norma" is now in re- ] hcarsal, and will be first brought out ia Phila- 1 delphia during the engagement of Mr. Macready at the Astor Place Theatre. At the termination of this gentleman's engagement, it is probable we shall have this truuj/c in New York, and then we , sh ill be able to see and appreciate the probabilities of tbe campaign. Theatricals?Arrival of Mr. Macready.? 1 The arrival ol Mr. Macready, the great English \ tragedian, seems to have created as much excite- i ment, in certain circles, and in the fashionable world, as if it had been the landing of Louis Philippe, Louis Blanc, or Prince Louis NapoleonMr. Macready is a prince in theatricals?he belongs to the legitimate dynasty in England. During the last few years, a sort of revolution has taken place in theatrical life; the proud monarch of the buskin has been deposed, and now comes, selfbanished, to this land of freedom and fine pudding. Mr. Macready is, no doubt, a great man; but whether he is as great as he himself thinks he is, or is ot larger and more intellectual dimensions than Mr. Forrest, remains to be seen, in the campaign of the next six months. The commotion made among theatrical managers, to capture Macready, has been quite amusing and interesting. The great managers of this metropolis are undoubtedly Iiamblm, Mann and Niblo. They are the potentates of the stage in this region. Each of them, we believe, has 1 been busy in endeavoring to procure an engagement with Mr. Macready, for the theatre under his control?but Niblo, the well known and indefatigable Niblo, comes out the Napoleon of the managers in this contest, at last. How this vietor* has been wrurprl hv Nihln ia mnr? ?* ? ? . ? -J ?" <*" **? t can tell, but no doubt he accomplished his pur- j pose by the exercise of his unrivalled genius and a great tact for managing men and theatres. The 1 appearance of Macready at the Astor Place Thea- 1 ire, will produce a great sensation in the upper J part of the city, and raise the reputation of that 1 establishment far higher than what was conferred ] on it by the harmony and discord of the Italian i opera last winter. The oj>ening of Shaksperian J characters in the Astor Place Theatre will create i a great juror in that part of the city, particularly as the town is now crowded with strangers from , all parts of the country. A new tlood of criticism 1 will be let loose on the country at once. For- , rest's great success at the Broadway Theatre has < brought out some critical inquiries to investigate , the peculiarities of his Btyle, and the eccentricities i of his school. Macready, with much talent and genius in his profession, has also lus eccentricities c and peculiarities? and those little points that can 1 be made the point ot infinite wit and ridicule, will, . J undoubtedly, be well examined and commented upon, for certain, before his engagement is con. f eluded. Mr. Forrest has many friends, ardent, ' g burling friends, in this region, and they will not 11 permit Macready to pass through his approaching n engagement, without a most searching criticism * on his style and mode of dealing with Shaksptare. We expect a great deal of amusement and tl interest in theutrical matters for the next month. .h B Movements of Individual*.

We n< ed only add that all these features are kept up at their original standard, aud tho^e who visit this theatre will find our assertions to be strictly correct. Ti> night .Mr. Collins will ai pear as Mr. MoShane, in the amusing comedy of the " Nervous Man. and the Man of Nerve,'' also as Morgan Hauler, in " How to Pay the ltent," and the farce of '' Young America'' will couclude the bill. National Theatre.?The production of a new piece, with all the magnificence which the well known liberality of the manager of this house can devise, will no doubt prove highly rati-<fac'.ory to the numerous patrons of the favorite National. The piece is ?' Ksunralda." a stage version of Victor Hugo's celebrated

novel, which aflords much room for inojt elegant display. The present version of the novel enters more iuio the slory than any previous one which has been pre ented to the public; and the dramatic incidents will be finely worked out. Mica L Mestayer will take the part ot the Uipsy Girl, and Mrs. McLean that of Uudule. and Herbert, Taylor, Palmer, &c., wi.l all appear The popular Mysteries and Miseries of New Vork " will also be played. This piece i? as successful asevtr. in fact, it is just in the height of its popularity; but as there are other new pieces to be produced, it will coon be necitsary to lay it aside; therelore, those who have not yet seen it, had better be [juick about it. The faroe of '' Catching an Heiress " will also be played The accommodations fcr visitors it the National are of the first olass; tbe box-keepers ire mot t polite and attentive, and parties going there will meet with every attention; but as the house is so fully attended every night, we recommend those who *isb good teats to go early, or secure them during the lay. Nmi.o's.?Comedy has been tbe attraction here ately, and the vtiy talented company have given some >f the most elegant representations which have been wniit-rpeu lur bume lime in new VorK. Tile two Placides jlayed last week, and the " Rivals,-the "Two Dronioe," and various other comedies brought them most idvantageously before the p blic. Miss Isab?l Dicknson has likewise created quite a sensation in her avor; she is a dashing aotreHs, and we trust we shall >ee more of her. To-night Mr. Iiackett will appear in lis favorite part of the fat knight, Kalst&ff, in ' Henry IV.' The excellence of his performance of this part is universally acknowledged; and. as the play is most admirably cast, with Mr. Vandenhoff, Mr. Crisp, Chippendale, T. Placide, kc , there is no doubt that it will be performed in most perfect style. The farce of the ' k.ton Boy," in which Miss Diokinson Is so excellent, rill likewhe be played. The great charm of the enter:ainments at Niblo's is the admirable manner in which .he various parts in a piece are distributed among sompetent actors, thus avoiding those glaring inequalties which are apt to ocour when there is but one star, lurrounded by a company of mediocre talent. Mr. tfacready will appear at Niblo's on Wednesday evenng. It will be the great theatrical event of the rtek. Burton's Theatre.?The excitement in favor of his elegant hsuse keeps up, and the very entertainng amusements which are got up, are certainly meit idmirable. During the past week, "Dombey and Son" las again been the attraction, and Captain Cuttle, Sir. Toots. Jack Bunsby, and all the dramatit periun<r of this most sucoessful drama, have been weisomeil with the immense applause which has always been bestowed on it from the very first time that it was produced. Of the excellence of the actors in this piece, we need not speak?Burton.
