HAILS FOR EUROPE. THE WEEKLY HERALD. The mails of the steamship Acadia will close in this My at half-past 3 o'clock this afternoon. The H'tikly Jltrald, for European circulation, will ready for deliTery at 12 o'clock, at sixpence per opy. It will contain, printed in Krench as well as in English, all the important and interesting news of the | WMk. Th? Acadia will leave Boston to-morrow noon. State of Enropt?Rrlgn of Terror lit Eiigltnd. Every week's intelligence from Europe is deeply interesting. The contest in that quarter of the world is for great,powerful,and unchangeable principles of progress in human society. The crisis in England. France, and other nations of Europe, is as important as that which broke out there with the reformation of Luther. Then it was a contest of religious liberty against religious despotism; now it ie civil liberty against oligarchy and civil tyranny. Every week's intelligence from England is as interesting il ight have been during the old revolution in the seventh!* century, winch ended in the establishment of the commoi.T"1' \ * this moment a reign of terror exists in Engine., as deep and bitter as the reign of terror established by Charles the First, against the reformers of his day. In the full and comprehensive details why^ we have lately given of the legisllti've, executive, and judicial proceedings adopted by the British government and their subservient tools, against the chartists and the other political bodies of the British empire, there is developed as deep and bitter a spirit of tyranny as ever was exercised by Judge Jeffreys and the government oi his day. An Englishman reads a paragraph from one of the American papers, commenting in general terms on the policy of the English government toward one i ol its provinces, and lor this act is arrested, tried, convicted, and sentenced to two years imprisonment in the penitentiary, as a felon No viola* tion of civil liberty and persona! right went farther than that in the days of Charles the First. And yet the English journals talk of liberty being enjoyed in that land by every one claiming to be an English* I man. The truth is, the British government is an odious landed oligarchy, in whom all the powers of this civil liberty, so muA vaunted and so much abused, are concentrated and directed to the enjoyment of an oppressive monopoly, and to the deprivation of the great musses ol the people of every social and civil right, beyond a beggarly pittance that barely supports human existence. One million ol men monopolize everything like j>ower aJid proj>erty over the other twenty-seven millions composing the British population. The riots which have been lately renewed in Ireland, will not, we are afraid, produce any lasting reform or ameliorafiftn-in the condition of the people. The discontented.ma9se6 of Irish society are not pervaded with any advanced ideas of li* berty or government. Their efforts spring merely from the overwhelming force ol the destitution and physical evile under which they are groaning, j but are not directed by strong or powerful ideas to j ward the attainment of anything real, or political, j in human advancement. The real revolution, if it ever should take place in the British empire, will commence simultaneously in the three kingdomst and spring from higher ideas and more effective instrumentality than have characterized the late movements of the Irish people. The present con" duct of the British government towards the chartists and the other i olitical malcontents, forms but the first step in that reign of terror which will ultimately produce a general conflagration throughout the land. Time will mature events. The Corrupt I m ol th?- Public Money, for Parly Purposes. We learn that upwards of a million and a half of j public documents?that is, of parti Kan docu- | mente?have been distributed by the democratic , ranking committee, at Washington, since the close of last session. The number of whig documents is not ?et d?w n, but it is quite reasonable to suppose that the wk.g committee have not been ji i *u.? :r*i ... i . lair, aiiu mm, u mrjf imvc not Oil quite QS many Buncombe speeches und articles as their opponents, they have, at least, exhiV>itf?d no scrupulosity about using the power w hich they possess, to gorge the mails with party statements and representation?, doubtleas, containing as great a quantity of trash nnd lies as those sent by their opponents Previous to every Presidential election, several members of both houses ol Congress are appointed u committee to remain in Washington, during the recess, lor the purpose of deluging the country, both North and>onth, with documents generally ol a most worthies character. The mails groan with the weight of these parcels?the business correspondence of the country is often delayed in consequence?and, what is worse than either, the people are taxed to pay for the transmission of matter sent, most generally, with the sole view of helping a few men to ?flice. The people's money w barefaeedly squandered, in order thnt the politicians may thrive. for this practice, neither party is mor< to blame than the other. It is followed with a j?erfect understanding between them that the fight is to be waged with wea|K>?M purchased at the people's expense; and men, individually respectable, do not sempl? to commit w holesnle fru >ds on th?- govern Trent, Pttnply bfcuw the government ehoo?e8 to wink at them, and they are sanctioned by the conceit and skulking consent of their brethren in both partita. A fraud on government it t??became those who firat favored the conferring ot the frankiog privilege on members of Congress, never contemplated its ute for the furtherance of parly purposes. It was cool< rred simply to ifford facilities for free communication with their con. I stituent*. and to enable them to lay before the latter such information, relating to the business ot l'gislation and the affairs of the country, as it would be in their power to give, and it would be usefu1 to the people to receive. li is tim< i ablic attention were directed to this growing abuse. The only practicable mode of renting it is by abolishing the franking privilege, and at the same time by making newap?i|>er8 free ; of postage. As long as members are allowed the franking privilege, they will abitf*e it to dose their const luent." with trashy speeches made by themselves and others. This fraud will continue so j long as it is legalized. When it is prohi ited and puniehed, like any t>ther fraud, then it will cease. The Senate of the United States, by a resolution of that body passed at its last session, legalized 1 anoiner traud ot a similar cnaracter. >\ e reier to the publication of the speeches of Senators made duriDg the session, in the two party journals of 1 "Washington, the Union and the Intclligcncer, at ! the rate of seven and a half dollars the column, to \ t ach. For the rei>orting, printing and publishing these same speeches, now in course of publication from day to day in those papers, the Senate has J already paid Doctor Houston, their late reporter. The speeches were complete?in the hands of all the Senators and their friends?and yet, in order 1 to give the party papers above named a bonus for I lheir partisanship?nothing else?the Senate actu' ally broke its contract with Doctor Houston, and voted seven and a half dollars a column for their re-publication in the T'nion and IntclligeMer. By this contract, each of these papers clears, at the lewest calculation, five dollars a column, and 1 their profits may be estimated by the fact that they now publish from six to ten columns daily, and that of the most drowsy and soporific trash, generally, that ever fell from Senatorial hps. The House of Representatives very creditably refused to sanction this fraudulent use of the public money, and it is to be hoped that the Senate will see the grossness of the deception practised on them by a few of their own body in the interest of those wretched papers. If the movers of this scheme for the publication of the reports were actuated by motives of human" ity, it was certainly very mistaken humanity.? To prolong the lingering existence of those wretched papers, at the expense of the people, was an act of fgregrious folly. They $e neither useful to their own party nor dangerous to their opponentsindeed, it would be impossible to guess at the ob" ject of the Union's existence, except to eulogise Mr. Folk; or of the Intelligencer's, except to be the aiologist of Kngland. It is quite possible that the wings wished the continuance of the former, with the view of injuring the democratic party, and Miat the democrats, actuated by similar motives, desired to lend a helping-hand to the Intelligenccr. This may, after all, be the secret of the success oja measure which outwardly wears a most repul. sive aspect. Indeed, we doubt if the Senate of the United States has ever offered a grosser or more barefaced indignity to the common sense of the people, than by robbing the Treasury to enrich those i apers. We hope that after the election 111 November the politicians will return to their senses, and en j deavor, with as good a grace as iiossible, to undo the mischief they have done, and stop the expenditure of public money for the vile and dirty purple of party ( Coi.lins's Line ok New Vork axd j Mail Steamers.?This line of ocean steamships, i built under the direction of E. K. Collins, Esq., < j the hulls of two of which will be launched next 1 ; month, will probably excel in point of swiftness, ' : and every other kind of excellence, any vessels now afloat. Tliey are intended to ply between this port and Liverpool, and will, in all likelihood, I prove the fastest and safest steam vessels ever built. The machinery will be of immense J strength, the engines more solid and strong than ] any heretofore constructed, and tiie greatest cner- j gies of science will be directed to produce, in j their construction, the most ]>erfect combination of ( strength and swiftness. The contract with govern- 1 ] wient provides that the vessels shall have such i capabilities as to admit of being converted, at any ^ 1 time, into war steamers of the first class; and it has been hitherto a trial of skill so to combinc ! the necessary strength with such modelling, in other respects, as would secure the greatest possible speed. The proprietors are sanguine that they have aituined. in the construction of the New i Vork and Liverpool mail line, this happy combi- , nation, to the fullest practicable extent. The j steamers are to be named, respectively, the Atlantic, the Pacific, the Arctic, the Adriatic, and the Baltic, making them emphatically an ocean ' line of steamers. The 1 nwritten History of the Mexican War. ?Some lew weeks ago we published a communication, entitled a " Chapter from the Unwritten History of the Mexican War," describing some of the men and the movements in the famous battle ' of Mohno del Key. The author of that article is a gentleman of the highest honor and veracity?n ; ' military man of unquestionable capacity, J one i who was an eye-witness to most of tlie scenes and , incidents he described. We perceive that a rery long and elaborate reply , was made to the article yesterday, in the columns of the Courier and Enquirer. The reply, however, j is by no means conceived in the courteous man- i ner of the communication which it purports to j correct. Yet, notwithstanding this disparity in j the style and tone of the two articles, we shall | endeavor to find room for the material parts of the reply, as soon as possible, in order that all i 1 parties referred to may have fair play in the co- ' 1 lumn? ?f this journal. We wish nothing but the I 1 truth in relation to this matter, and to all the distinguished men who have been engaged in the j Mexican campaign. Important St*it Ejections.?Yesterday two i important Mate election? took place, one in Georgia and the other in Florida In two or three days we shall receive eome of the returns trom these States. These returns, whatever they may be, will give us additional data to judge of the chances of General Cass and General Taylor lor the Presidential chair. If the result in Georgia and Florida should be very decidedly in favor of the whigparty, it will zive an iiii|>etus to the election of General Taylor that w ill p:.rrv liini lrmmi?hant)v throiiL'h tile content. ?>n the contrary, if the democratic paity be Mctorious, the chances of (leneral Cass will h<- projKHtionately increased, and thoa#.- of < iene/al Taylor diminished The eyes of nil {toliticians will Ikfixed on those two elections. We have made complete arrangements to procure tlx- arli< ?t and most authentic returns of them, and the public may reft latistied of receiving tin first and most accurate intelligence through our columns.

The Monplainir's. M if re-assured of the favorite placo which they held in th? esteem of the audience, performed the various parti allotted to them in a manner which called fi>r the loudest plaudits. " Ksmerulda" has not been performed bcrnre In n more periect manner man on this occasion The l'at 8tul in the tirnt act, and tbe l'at He liiux in the fame, with all the accompanying and intervening dances, were accomplished in that manni-r of distinguished grace which characterizes only high art and great practice, oonnected with the best abilities, and in the second act the feats of agility and gracefulness were not lest wonderful. Tbe other entertainments of the evening were all that could be desired In the oomedietta of " Our Mary Anne."' Mr. Chapman as Jonathan Junk. Miss Rose Selbin as Ernestine. afforded ample amusement to put tbe audience in the heft possible humor, and in the after piece of " 40 and SO.'' Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert, as Mr. and Mrs. Lilljwhite, were perfectly and irreslstably comical. Mr. certainly an actor of very high merit, and cannot fail to become a great favorite at any house where he performs. He has such a quiet and happy way of saying his good things that his auditors are drawn into a broad grin, or a laugh outright, before they are aware of it. Mrs. G. also possesses creditable stage talent, and seconds, extremely well, the efforts of her husband. Bowery Tin *tiik.?This house was well filled last evening, despite the excessively unpleasant weather; and those who did go were amply repaid for their trouble, as ' (.'ortolanu*'" was produced with great splendor. Mr. llamblin filled the part of the haughty Roman most admirably. lie looked the character to perfection. and his elocution and declamation were truly great. Tilton. Stevens, Miss Taylor, Mrs. Winstanley and the other performers, were all excellent in their parts. Mr. Haiublin is acting tinely during this engagement. And the series of elegant and classic pieces in which he appears every evening, ought to b* seen Dv all (rue lovers o: tne Higher walRs ot the drama We are glad to Bee that the patronage bestowed on tb? Bowery of late has been great: it is one of the most favorite houses in the country, and the refutation it has acquired in former times will always b.t upheld by the present management. The beautiful dancing of Signora Ciocca and Signor Neri. and (& ^Basing little comedy of ' Charles 11.'' concludod tb# ^Tuning's entertainments To-night Coleman's splendid play of the Iron Chest," will be performed?Mr. iiamblin'taking the part of Sir Kdward Mortimer. Dancing by Ciocoa and Neri, the farce of the "Loan of a Lover.'' and''Tom Cringle's Log," compote the rest of the bill. Mrs. Winstanley, Miss Taylor, J. M. Scott Ilall, Dull, kc., will all appear. Broadway Tiieatiie.?The inclemency of th? weather and other causes, operated in producing a thin attendance last evening, notwithstanding the great attraction of Mr. Collins in two characters, MeShane, in the "Nervous Man,"' and Rattler, in "How to Tay the Kent." The pieces went off very well, however, and the audience wore highly delighted, as must all be who see Mr. Collins in either of those parts. The extraordinary success which attended his appearance during the past week, though more extraordinary. after the plcthoric houses which Mr. Forrest continued so long to draw, has induced the management to re-engage him, and several popular Irib.H pieces are 12 c&urse of preparation This evening. Gore s comedy of O'Nell," and the farce of the ''Jtffh Tost, ' are to be predated; Mr. Collins in tho principal parts. The former piece ?? one of great interest and humor; and the blunders Of Terence O'Grady, in the "Irish Tost.'" are conceived in tho richest vein of merriment. Mr. Collins sings several capital songs in the coursc of the evening. National Theatre?A new version of the very popular novel. " La Esmeralda," was produced at this bouse last evening, before a very crowded house. The story of the novel is somewhat altered, of course, in nrder to suit it for stage representation; but it still preserves all that thrilling interest which Victor Hugo's masterpiece possesses in such an eminent degree. Miss Mestayer personated Esmeralda, ller figure and style are not exactly what one would fancy of the Bohemian girl, but her excellent acting of the part made up iuT this. She bas several pretty ballads in the course of the piece and all of '^,.m were muck ap- J ['lauded. f^'.'iiier. as Captain rho'bus. the bright star of Kmieralda's thoughts, played well; and the Belli inuer. Quafimodo. was finely playod by Mr. Jones. Mr. McLean's Oudule was mueh applauded. The scenery atid general getting up of the piece was very tine, and tbe dances, tableaux. tun , which were so beautifully docc. tllcltid long and continued applause. The ' Mysteries and Miseries " fallowed next?it was as rich and racjr as usual, and the various eceen'ricltios of More. Sykesjr, Sc Co. were ss prolific in entertain- 1 ment as ever. To night " Ksmeralda'' will be n^ain ' ixrforaed, as n'fo the' Mrsteries and Miseries. A he I rarccr,f ati f'c!re?s " Till conclude the \ Mil. The house will be crowded, no doubt. Bi bton'i Tiikathe.?A drama, new in our clty_ ^ sailed''The Toodles, or the Farmer's Daughter," was j arc ugLt out !aet night at Burton's. The chief charao. Lcr. Mr. Timothy Toodle, wad played by llr. Burton, | biimvlf, in such a masterly Ftylc as to throw all the otfcerg in the shade. The house was. in fact, kept in au iner?>ant fit of uproarious laughter. The conc'.ution of the piece was accidentally more comic than any of the intended comicalities it contains. Three couple embrace each other on the f-tage; the farmer and his brother, (Mr. I yeneand Mr. Jordan.) on their reconciliation, the dai>gLUr and her lover. (Mr. Grace, and Mrs. A. Knight.) and Mr. Toodles and his wire, (Burton and 1 Mr!". Vernon.) When they, therefore, all six embraced each other. In the proper couples, and the curtain ihc.ulu have dropped and closed the loving fcene, the curtain, from some accident to the machinery. again and again refused to bndgefrom its fixture up aloft. The involuntary prolongation of the embraces of the three embracing couples, was. in this state of suspense, highly amusing, especially that of Mr. and Mrs. Teodle. who both enhanced the drollery of their position by a great amount of extemporaneous ! fun. The laughter of the audience was thus augmented by the skill with which the incident was ' turned into an additional extemporaneous comic scene Mr. Burton being called out by tumultuous | plaudits, made a little speech, "replete with fun and ThV Va?t?*of r?. * ??lt. , apt at n Cuttle" followed, in which J8?K &un ^ Brougham), and Captain Cattle, .f. iturmuj. uvvn mew uuwu liumnii-u tuuuuors of well merited applause from a house, even on such a ! tempestuous nignt as last night was. yet crowded to the rotf. sum is the reward of good management, excellent piece*, and first-rate performers. The pretty Miss Sinclair performed most sweetly and beautifully as Snrah Blunt in " Toor rillicoudy;" we think she would succeed in higher part*. As for burton, and Brougham. and I.ynne. nnd Ilaymond, kc.; also, Mrs. 1 Brougham. Mrs. Vernon, Mrs. Loder, be., they need ' no mention whatever. The increasing rush of the public to this well conducted theatre is the best critique upon the excellence of these most excellent ' and admirable performers. Nin o's Theatre.?It was truly exhilarating, last ( night, to witneas what is really a novelty in the pre- ; sent state of the drama, the whole of one of Shak- 1 speare s plays, (Henry the IV,) well and faithfully ' performed throughout, with n cast such as seldom : have met together to do more justice, individually and collectively, to the historical play of that name. The Hotspur of Vandenhoff, is, beyend all controversy, his | best character, whilst a more dashing and spirited j representation of the Prince of Wales could not be I found than in Mr. Crisp. Mr. Iiackett's "Falstaff" i scarcely need* a culogium. Although it is now more j than ten years since we saw him in the same character, with infinite success, upon an occasion that attracted ; the largest audience that ever filled the late National Theatre, a well-merited and justly appreciated tribute 1 to the talents and enterprise of Mr. llackott The ! part of Poins was well identified in Mr. Charles, as were the parts of Francis, by Mr. T. Placide, ami first Carrier, by Chippendale The kndy Percy of Miss ; Horn, and the Hostess of Mrs. Charles, were received with much applause. The whole performance was distinguished by an unnsual array of professional talent. The farce of the " Eton Hoy " followed the j tragedy with the same success that has marked each < repetition of an entertainment that developes the predomlnent features of Miss Dickinson s male repre amnion* 10 great euect. inn evening win ne me lift appearance of Mr. T.

Obani> Com krt.?ThlJ musical leftl* val. which has been announced for some weeks, came off last evening, at the Tabernacle, before an audience of at least four thousand persons. The overture to ' Kgmont,"' by the orchestra, was well received; lint to our mind wo hate often heard an orchestra of a lesser number give as much general satisfaction The romance of -'Uuido et OlneTra," by M. l.aborde was executed very pleasingly. The nndlenoe were next in rxpectation of hearing Signorina Tufll and Slgnorn I'leo. in the duo' Semlramlde;" but much to their surprise and disappointment an apology was made, | stating that Madamo Pico ? as sick. This caused some dissatisfaction, until Madame l,aborde whi jntroln je I, who sang an aria lroui *' 11 Barblere dl Sivlglia," which was rendered with great sweetness mid musical skill.

The streets are flooded, and the clouds of dust, which but a few days since filled the whole city, hire settled down 'ttto a deep mud. Militia Traimso.?Yesterday was the day set apart for the general training of thn ununiformed militia, but, in consequence of the storm, there were very few who piiiiJid.

The companies were composed of people of every nation and tongue, and one would suppose, to look at thtm. that they were familiar with Chinese! or ?-onie other unheard tf tactics. Many were without guns. "Oil abaut one-half were almost without the neceff ary garments to cover them, and the cold rain I caused a general shivering among the troops. Had the day been fine, there is ex cry probability thousands of the most untutored soldiers would have appeared in all the gorgeoueness of military display. tibf.r.t Exci r<iok.?The Jackson CVuard. composed of the members of Kngine Company, No. 11. of Brooklyn. pa?jed through the city yesterday, on an excursion to Bull's Ferry.
