Ktwa fro ill K iu-ojw .?a ffhl r* in France and Ireland. The stean up Britannia i in her fifteenth day, ani, theref .overdue r tins port. The news to be re d by r look* i for with consider- ' able int -t. It will be one w eek luter than our previous advices. The fat? of France absorbs universal attention. The critical state of Paris, at the last accounts, has created great anxiety among all classes in this ' country, and many look for the tidings of another insurrection by the next 6teamer. The recent movements in Ireland, growing out the distresses of the people, give some hope to UK mends of that ill-fated nation in this couatry. They are cherishing the belief, that out of the food riots something of more magnitude may etart into existence. Apropos to Ireland, we give in our columns, to-day, a letter from D'Arcy McGee, one of those who took part in the icvcui ttuuiii?c lctujuuuu iii unuiiu, explain- I ing the causes which led to its failure. Mr McGee has been lucky in reaching these shores where he ie sate from the i<ersecutions and punishment which await his less fortunate associates in ire land. Mr. McGee's letter gives, we think, the true reasons of the failure of that movement. When everything was ripe, and success was evident, if the masses would rally to the support of their leaders, the Catholic clergy, with their vestments 011, emerged from their altars, and pronounced against any |>olicy being pursued but that of moral force, for the attainment of the political rights of Irefond. This is the opinion which we have often expressed on this subject; and we rei>eat what we have before said, that until the people of Ireland shake off the influence which the Catholic clergy exercise ever thtm, they never will be able to accomplish their political freedom, or be capable of selfgovernment. Priests of all denominations are very good in their proper spheres, but when they travel beyond their religious duties, and engage in politics, they should not any longer be looked upon as priests, but as intermeddlers in what ought not to concern them ; and any people who tolerate it .muBt be regenerated ere they can be capable 01 appreciating or enjoying republicanism. .Tin Whig Nominations.?When the false intelligence of a battle having taken place between tljc Irifch insurgents and the British troops, at the hill ol Siievenamore, in which the latter were represented to be deLeated with great slaughter, was published, the Exprtst of this city, not content with pronouncing it a fabrication, as it certainly was, went luither, and poured out its abuse on the Irurh.both those in the United States and those in tbvir own country, and on the movement generally. "When the Irish agitation was commenced in tl is city, the same paper went out of its way to injure and abuse the Irish, and maintained a continued warfare against them till the last moment, in pretty much the same way that it vilified and abused General Taylor, until his nomination by the Philadelphia Convention in June last. Meantime, however, Mr. Brooks was using his best exertions t* procure a nomination as member of Congress, which he at length succeeded in; and tie now stands before his fellow citizens, the Irish included, the whig nominee for the sixth congressional district of this city. We have, on various occasions, Bhown up the utter folly and incapacity of the whig leaders in this pan of the world, to hold the positions which they occupy. Need we adduce stronger proof of the jubtnese of our remarks than this same James Brooke 1 After pursuing a career of opposition to Oneisl Taylor for several months previous to his nomination?alter saying more against him than any or all of his political opponents did?after even underrating his military qualifications, which the democracy jever dared to do, he turned round after his nomination, and from that event till the lament time has been lavish of his praise. The tiero of Buena Vista, once, in the opinion of the editor of the Erprttt, utterly incompetent to fLH the office of chief magistrate of this Union, and, withal, a general having many fujenors, is now the object of his adoration?is a recond Washington, and will, no doubt, be even >>r?Mter ihan lie, if, after his inauguration at Wafchiugtcn, he will but gratify Mr. Brooks1 desire for office and emolument. The same editor, too, whilst fie was abusing the Irish in every possible *ay, knew ibut il he succeeded in gelling the nomination ax member of Congress, be w? ulo, lo ii gnat i xunt, be (Jejiendent on the \<iy voter* whom he vilili^d, for his election.

I tesiocRATic Removals.?A short time since the ! old hunkers of Tammany Hall held committee* meetings, at which resolutions were passed, demanding ol Mr. Lawrence, tae collector of the port, the removal from office ol ceitain persons in the receipt of salanes in the custom house, on the ground that they were liarnburners. i These resolutions were presented in due form by an old hunker, who, for his pains, was himself dismissed. This, of course, gave great olence to one branch ol the harmonious democratic family, who denounced him lor it; but it was not the only penalty that Mr. Lawrence was to pay lor deigning no1 to comply with tt behests of rival parties. Having recently dismissed some barnburners, whether at the dictation of the old unkers or not, we cannot ; say, their friends thought they would have a meet- 1 ;ng and pass resolutions too. They accordingly did so, on Friday evening lust, with hearty good S will. Mr. Lawrence is in an awkward position. ' He is between two fires; and no matter what dt- ; i rection he may move in, he is certain of being burnt. Yet, with nil these drawbacks, the collec- 1 torship of New York is quite a handsome office, and we think it highly j robable that .t would require more than theBe troubles to induce MrLawrence to give it up. HoRTictn/rt re.?Conventiors are now the order of the day. No matter what objects are sought to be attained in this country, whether they be of , a political, a religious, or a socta character, a convention is the instrumentality to work out the withed-for consummation. Of the vauous conventions, however, whose : proceedings have lately occupied the public mind, ! there is none where more pure rational enjoyment could be had than that of the horticulturists, I who assembled, the other day, at Clinton Hall. This is only one of a series of similar fes- ! tivals which are held about this season of the year, in every great cenire 01 mis gieai couniry, and at which the reeults of the taste, judgment, and labor, in this particular de, artment, are displayed in endless variety, and boundless profusion. Of late years, tins art, and we don'i know but it might be dignified with the name of a science, i has advanced with rapid strides. Looking back but a century or two ago, to the speculations of the great minds of that period, with respect to horticulture, one is forcibly reminded of the throes of the mighty intellects on steam, with its various applications, and chemistry, with its beneficial I influences on mankiud. The mmortal Milton j described, in the most beautiful style, a garden planned precisely u, on the most approved principles of modern landscape gardening, although he had never seen any thing of the kind, and had nothing to depend upon for his picture but the boundless resources of his own imagination. Inthiscountry it was little practised, as theoretically understood, up to a late |>eriod, but owing to the writings and the example of Lowell, Gov. Gore, Treble, Cushing, and o her gentlemen, and to the competitive spirit of our people, it bids fair in a short time to rival and surpass what has been done in the most favored and most scientific countries of Europe. It is not, howtver, for the grand annual displays of fruits and flowers, and the manifold productions of nature, that we prize this art so much?it is not for the opportunities thus afforded ?f passing an j hour in the friendly interchange of thought and I ; feeling?but it is for the refining and softening iu- 1 fiuence it has upon human character, by the tai^te 1 j it excites, the powers it calls into exercise, and I | the moral and social disposition it inspires. To ' J use the language of Mr. Winthrop, speaker of the House of Representatives, on a late j j occasion:?"Horticulture, in its most comprehenI sive sense, is emphatically the fine art of common ! j life. It is eminently a republican fine art. It dis I tributes its productions with equal hand to the rich 1 and the poor. Its imj lements may be wielded by j every arm, and its results appreciated by every eye. It decorateB the dwelling of the humblest j 'aborer with undoubted originals, by the oldest j masters, and places within his daily view fruit pieces such as Van Huysum never painted, and 1 landscapes such as PouBsin could only copy." South American Curiosities?We have re ceivea, irom our corresponaenis id uemarara, one of the greatest of natural curiosities, also a piece of vine, supposed to possess valuable medicinal qualities. These give another'evidence that the western hemisphere is replete with the workings of nature. The first is the upper jaw of a fish, found in the waters of the penal settlement of Guyana. It is, j id form, very much like the jaw of a greyhound, and is thickly set with long and pointed teeth; but, , unlike every other animal, the teeth decrease in ! size in the back part of the jaw. The front tusks are, in some instances, three inches long, though > the one sent to us, which was taken from a | jourg fith, is only about two inches long. At the i root of every tooth in the jaw, is a duplicate of precisely the same shape, though not so large. | i The nostrils are situated between the tusks, and j are very small. The bone is almost perfectly i transparent, and seems to possess little or no ! strength, except where the teeth enter. The same ! fish is described by Shumberg, as being found in that country, though the inhabitants seem to know nothing of 11. It is a great curiosity, and would prove a most formidable assailan1, should it be encountered. The other is a vine, found in that country, which is supposed to possess medicinal qualities ; but it iB known OBly to the Indians who inhabit the interior. It is covered with a very thick spongy bark, very like that of the white gum tree. The grain ot tne wood seems to be tilled with a mucila- | ginous kind of matter, which, when dry, causes the grains of the wood to separate, and the whole may be taken apart, from the root to the extreme end of the vine. It has a very pleasant Bmell, and is, no doubt, used for medicinal purposes by the natives. We have not received the name of either of these curiosities, and are, therefore, unable to say what they are. The country abounds in natural productions, and the day is not tar distant when some of our enterpiising countrymen will bring up, from the wilderness, something which will not only prove of great |>ecuniary benefit to himself, but of invaluable good t<> the weild Marine Affair*.

Bovieht Tiieatkb.?This week has been a most suocesrful one at tbe Bowery. Tbe revival ?f the drama of Ilookwood," in all its original splendor, and, indeed, with a better cast than it ever before had, ha* given the greatest satisfaction to the audiencci, and long and loud bas been the applause lavished upon It. Tbe ballet, too, bas had its share of applause; and deservedly for it has been pioduced wiih great care, and performed in tbe most elegant m*nner Many jearr have rolled by since first we visited the Bowery, and. amid all its mopt successful seasons, we never remember seeing it going on more pro-perously than it does now. It is an example of what is seldom keen in any country, more especially in this one. vii:? a theatre going on. year after year, with undeviating success. The pn-sent proprietor is too proud of the house which has gained him so much renown, both as an actor and manager, ever to allow It to flag, but will, we doubt not. continue long to keep it up at its present high Hand, and, moreover. increase its popularity. During the coming week, many novelties will be produced, and. aa th? alinanac-makera would ?ay, ''look for full houses about this time " With the excellent company which i? permanently attached to the establirbuji nt any piece can be performed in first rate style. Broadway Thkatkk ?Fourth Oi'Kha Night.?Last ni^ht. the popular opera of ' Sonnambula" was represented at th s theatre and with suoh a troujie,comprising Mr. and Mrs. Seguin Mr. W. H Keeves. and the other distinguished members of this highly accomplished ope. ratta company, but one opinion could be formed of the attraction ofthe occasion, and that opinion was fully realized by the result. The capacious stage of the Broadway has larely been occupied by a company more eminently quautitd to do ample justice to the I&sciuaciug music ol Bellini Mrs Seguin. in voice and character, teemed peifectly at home in her favorite Amina, and was loudly applauded in those sublime passages, into which she inluses a charm of indescribable fascination. Mr. Reeves was In excellent voice, and gave full effeot to that charming scene of the opera. " Still sq gxntly o'er me stealing," in which he wan most fl utter! ogiy cncorrd. The entertainment * as indisputably well sustained by all the company, and much regret was evinoed by the announcement that this splendid opera cannot again be, under present circumstances, repeated With a laudable desire on the part of the managers to suppl; a succession ot popular operas during the engagement of the Seguin company, Wallace's grand opeia of Marltana,"' which abounds in a profusion of such accompaniments as might be expected from an author of modern and acknowled ed merit, will be introduced od Monday evening, combining the full and effective force of tbe vocal and instrumental performers, and witb choruses and scenic effect that must command the public patronage. National Theatre.?Ab Mobs pays, in the burUsque, " tbe bouse, down in Chatham Square, is drawing in the quarter* with a perfect rush," and well It may, for a more pleasant theatre cannot be found in a day's walk. Whatever is produced on tbe stage of tbe National is done well, and the famous local dramas have been brought out as perfectly as it was possible for tbem to be. ' New York as It la," and the " Mys- 1 teriee and Miseries" bare been witnessed by thousands upon thousands, and Cbanfrau has gained a tirwt rate { reputation by his admirable representation of tbe ] n anly and good-hearted, tbougb somewhat pugna- j cious. b'hoy of New York. He first started this species ot char?cter,and we imagine it will bn long before i he will find any competitor There will be several new pieces produced next week, and no pains will be ' stared to please tbe numerous patrons which this theatre now possesses. It it centrally located, and I convenient of access, the house l* buautlfully fitted , np and every attention is paid to visiter*. Tbe price i of admission is low still tbe most perfect order and decoium is maintained, as the auJiencas are always coirpottd of our moBt respectable oitizens. Success, ' tben. attend on Chanfrau's National, and long may ' the mansger of his company continue to delight tbe New Yorkers. Bvrtom's Theatre.?ThlB fashionable place of amusement was well attended, last evening, to witness the two lccal dramas called ' New York in Siloes" 1 and " Lucy did Sbam Amour)" previous to whioh j wa* piayea * me ueaa snoi." 1am went oil well, , aod so did tbe next piece, ?! New Vork in Slices," until tbe ball scene, in which a character, represen- ' tative of tbe press, appeared. Several Demons then ccmmerced hirsing. which continued for sometime. One of the periorniers. Mr. Johnston, stepped for. ward, and asked what was meant by the basing? He was told by a gentleman present to take that character (pointing to the one representing th? prxss) off tbe stage, and tbere would no morn hissing. This tb?*y refused, and a slight difficulty ensued, which was soon quieted, and thing* were again about to go on pleasantly as before, when Mr. Johnston made use of an expression to some one present, whinh j led to a further difficulty, and resulted in the putting of several persons out of the house Alderman Liboy, I of th. Secocd ward, during the disturbance, materially aided in restoring quiet The eabsequent performances proceeded without any interruption, and were received with the usual demonstrations of pleasure. Niblo'* Aitor Place Theathe.?Mr. Oeorge Van* | denhoff took his farewell benefit last night, previous to his departure for New Orleans, and appeared in t>e character of Iienry fercy, in Shakspeare's play of " Henry IV." Mr John haistatr war played by Mr. ; Haekett, tbe best living representation of this neverdying. admirable, and most difficult comic character? 1 one of tbe best and richest creations of the genius of tbe iirmortal Shakspeare. Mr. Hackett'a performance of Kalsttff is beyond common praise, and is too familiar to tbe critical world of New York, to require criticism; it is enough to any to the world that Hackett appears, as KaMaff. to draw crowds to see bim. Mr. O. Vandenhuff, by this time, is also well kDo^m to tbe New Yoik world; he is an actor of great and various merit, excelling at once both in the higher walks of tragedy, and, at tbe same time, in the fine and elegant representations of genteel comedy. 11a is a young man of fine feeling, high spirit, and lofty ambition, and bis performance of Harry Percy, last night, ma specimen of histrionic ability, and elaborate art, of a high order. He has one great fault, which a* he is young, it may not, perhaps. be too late for bim to correct, though it will, assuredly, be very difficult? a fault, however, which, if not corrected, will certainly keep him at a stand-still, where he is all the days of bis life, and disappoint his high ambition in preventing bim from ever attaining a greater name anil character in bis nrofession than that which he bas already attained ; and he require* not to be told tbat there If *till a higher *tep That faulin, that he baa no voice and manner?of hia own. He ha* been, in hit early study, too much the alave of aervile imitation. which ha* given to hi* voice, geaturea and manner, a i/uaiitron fixity, identity and unchangabllity. Hit tone* are uniform.and not quite natural, hinain/le ' ft" is a uniform aneer. with many ahakes, atartj, rieinga falling#, upa and down*, which never vary in ho) charncter he aaaumea. He who has one* heard bim declaim, in any part, ba? heard a voice, tone, riae and fall, inflection and cadence, mixed with an evurprecent artificial aneer. which he will bear forever, at all future tim ?that I*. unle*a Mr V. find* again hi* own natural voice and manner. In a word, unless he becrmea lew an actor, and (if we might invent the term,) could he only a little more vn ihrati iratr himMl ?a difficult tack we confer*, but worthy the effort of tbi* talented and clever young man We hope ha will hav? good aenae enough to take oar candid criticism iu good part, and bear tt well, if not gratefully as It I* meant well and may be valiuble.

The Wf.atmer.?The weather yesterday continued the promise of rain, the sky having been obscured by clouds nearly the whole day. In the afternoon there was every appearance of an approaching storm. The clouds were dark and heavy, and the wind changed to the east. The night was dark until the rising of the moon, which partially dispelled the gloom which pervaded the elements. The State or the City.?The whole oity seems now to be in a ferment, In consequence of the apprnachiag election There is no single department which it generally productive of news, but is entirely dormant at this time, save the Custom house. The | barnburners holding oflioe In that establishment, begin j now to sutler Rome, noc less man rour or nve Qaviag been removed on Friday last. A general excitement prevails, and all parties seem sanguine of success. On : the reception ?f one batch of news, old Tammany is . illuminated from liasement to attic, but scaroely are j tbe candles by which it is lighted, half burned, | before a contrary statement is received, and the light disappears as speedily as it came, aud all is 1 again doubt and darkness Tbe last despatch j causes arrangements to be made for the illumlnatlon of some of the wigwams of the adverse party; and before tbe night comes on, that demonstration is frustrated by another despatch. At one moment tbe sachems of hunktrdom are blithe and smiling, and the adherents of the " Hero of Bony Witta." as he is termed by one high in office,look careworn and desponding At another moment, the reverse is the case, and the parties change positions, and the current of their feeling, eaoh taken by the oth?r. Thus are the anxious of both parties constantly changing?resting between hope and fear?first the one and then the other having the asoendancy in i their mlndB. Those who are looking out for the ' spoils, keep cool, but have a watch upou the results of j the election now going on, that they may form their , nnininna rrnrrlintrl v K.vurv nnt.hnn At* a nif hup PAnm present* daily a scene of politioal discussion. The corner of Tine and Nassau streets. whloh. bat a few weeks since, wa? the rendexvousofsome dozen) of office seekers, is entirely forsaken by tbem. in consequence, as tbey suppose, of the doubtful result of the administration for the coining four years. The thieves have partially ceased operations, that they m?y with certainty hold on to their liberty until after the election; and vagrants, except women, are few who fall into the hands of the guardians of the city. Every circle of society is perturbed, and politics and speculations as to the result have the uppermost station. In every ward meetings are nightly ealled by one or other of the many piirties. and liberty polls are rearing their lofty weather-cocks in every direction. The sound of the fife and drum may be heard from Harlem to the Battery, and banBers of every political character float in the breeze in every seotion of the city. Never has a greater excitement prevailed than now, and will be continued until the final result is known. District Convention!.?The old hunker* of the j First Assembly District, composed of the First and Second ward.'', assembled in convention last night, at Stoneatl's Hotel, In Fulton street, for the purpose of nominating a candidate for the A'SKinbly. The con- 1 vention was organized, and adjourned until Thursday evening next. The Free Soil Convention of tbe third Congressional District assembled U?t night at the corner ef Broadway and Lispenard street, for the purpose of nominating aeandldate to represent the party in the next Congress, but did not succeed in making a nomination. Large Bass ?There seems to be line sport in fishing at this time, in the neighborhood of Hell Gate ferry. A few days since, two gentlemen on a fishing excusion caught six, the aggregate weight of which was 74 pounds; tbe largest weighed 24, and the next in size 18% pounds. Serioi'i Accident.?The raising of the Taylor and Fillmore liberty pole, at the confluence of Grand hireri nuu r.jiH urwauwij, uu rriunj mlernoou, wis Attended by two serious aocidents, though the nanti of oeitber of the sufferers were ascertained. The flr?t was tbe falling of a heavy timber upon the leg of a person. who ?m assisting in the work, by which it wa? completely crushed; the other was severely out in the face by the discharge of a cannon. Neither is thought to be dangerously hurt. Attempt to Firk a Buildiwo.?

Chargt of Grand Larceny ?Captain and officer Wbalen, of the 6tb Ward Police, arrested, yesterday, two men, called Martin Verman, alia* Weyman, and Wm M. Collins, on suspicion of stealing a trunk from the store of Frederick Sietki, No. 41 Authony street, containing $'200 in silver coin and bank bills, two suits of clothing and several artioles of jewelry, valued in all kat near $600. The thieves conveyed the trunk away Into the 18th Ward, where It was found in a cellar broken open and tbe oentents carried off. The accused, wben arrested, were rigged out in no w suits of clothing, evidently purchased by the stolen money. Charge of Faltt Pretences.?Under this head we notioed yesterday the arrest of Stephen Weston, on a charge of obtaining goods by false pretences, by officer Van Nostrand.

The magistrate locked up the thief for trial. Making Rifles at Windsor, Vt.?A corres pondent ol a Rochester paper gives the following interesting description of ft rifle manufactory, at Windsor, Yt. The owners commenced their building about three years since, and expended in buildings, machinery. and materials, (115 000, before they made one rifle. About 4,000 of their rifles have been doing our country strrioa in Mexico. Their principal building is 100 feet long and 44 wide, and four stories in height. They have several other buildings for forging their work, and the various other operations connected with their business. The first contraot with the United States Government, was for 10.000 rifles. They, however, have another, and muoh larger contraot, made last January, although the first Is not yet completed. They turn out f>00 rifles per month, all incomplete order. They employ 100 artisans, besides 35 in the furnace busiaess. making castings and carriages lor the railroad. The barrel Is made from American iron, drawn from flat bars Into ,l scalps," ef the proper lanoth anH TKusn i and welded around a steel rod under a hammer that i makes 1600 blows per minute. During this operation, I the rod has to be frequently withdrawn to prevent it* 1 becoming welded with the iron annealing The barrel, thus formed next goes through the process of'1 nut boring," turning, rimming, and straightening, all of I which are curious enough, out the last more particularly so, as it is done, or rather is ascertained to be I correctly done, by the eye observing a shadow. The | next step is passing through a trial and inspeotion by : persons appointed by Government. They are loaded with 180 grains of powder, two balls and two wads, and fired each twioe. If they stand thia test, they pais an to the process of finishing inside, which is done by rifling machines at the rate of one barrel per hour to : each machine. They afterwards pa?s through the 1 process of browning, which requires great oare and skill i to make it succeed perfectly. Again they are inspeet| ed, and very few rejected on account of the smallest , pecsible defect* in the material Stooks are made i from black walnut, which has been seasoned three 1 years before working. If you have wn Mr. Curtis-* 1 last machine, you will have a tolerable Idea of the first process. These stocks pas* through six different machines; and a rifle, before it is oomplete in all it* part* passes tbrough more than one hundred different machines. a great share of wbioh are the invention or Improvement of Mr Lawrence. If he want* a curtain thine, be first Invents a machine to do it, and then sets it to work as a man would a boy The most singular machine Is the one he calls the "letting mi . chine." It performs several difficult and delicate j operations with a facility and ease that is perfectly astonishing It cuts out the places to receive the turret, ramrod, look, patch box, butt plate, guard strad, , side plate, band strlngp, he , so exact that they reI quire no band labor. The mounting is of brass finished nearly complete by machinery The look work is I forged indies It afterwards passes through a great variety of machines and comes out in the raest perfect shape These machines illustrate most effectually the surprising advantages nf-< Yankee ingenuity " K-?oh I piece will fit in any of the numerous rifles made here. , There is no such thing as tiying the several ptrts to make them match each other. Tarts that are alike : are tb own together, and taken at random, when wanted to make the gun, and so perfect are thoy that they nred no alteration whatever There are con! stantly employed three United States ln?p>*otors in the i establishment The rifles,when complete, do not vary | , two ounces each from the other in weight.

Twelve counties are to be heard from, which, in 1811, gave Tod, locofoca, a majority of 1,200. The House is certainly whig, but (here is a tie in the Senate. PlTTSUl/RO, Oct. 11, A. M. The accounts which continue to teach us from Ohio are contradictory. The probabilities are, however, that Col. Weller, the democratic candidate lor Governor, has been elected ; while the whips will have a majority on joint ballot in the Legislature. Columbus, Ohio, Oct. 14. Returns received from sixty counties, on democratic authority, give Weller 3,000 majority. Baltimore, Oct. 14?7 P. M. A despatch has just been received, direct from Columbus, which states that Ford, the whig candidate for Governor in Oh:o, has been elected by a small majority over Wellar, the democratic candidate.

Burial of an Indian Chief.?On Sunday the remains of Abram La Fort, named De-hatka-tona in bin native tongue, were committed to the grave. For several years be bore a conspicuous part in tna affairs of his nation, and for nearly two yean he haa bet n its head chief. lie succeeded the late Capt Front about nineteen months ago. and was widely known both among the whites ana natives. The ocsasioa called together a large concourse of people, by whom the ceremonies were witnessed with most intense Interest. At 12 o'elook, the corpse was carried upon a bier to the Council House, and placed in the oentre of the roem in which he had so often addressed the few remaining sons of the forest who bad a?*etnbi*d to pay their last tribute of respect to (.heir chief. The whlta people were seated at the extreme end of the room, and the females of the tribe occupied oae side and th? males the other. The ceremonies were commenced by Harry Webster, the highest religious officer of the I'agta f-a>ty, by asprtcn In his native tongue. At times he wax animated and spoke rapidly, and at other* in slow and tol?mn tonus, giving quantity to the vowels which form so large a part of the Indian language Although lie was not understood by the crowd of spectators, close attention was given, and all appetre 1 tw feel tha solemnity of the occa-ion.
