By thus attracting universal attention, all v other matters are, for the time, forgotten, and v events are all.wtd to work their own way, tor e good or for evil. Amoug the most important of ( lhe periods, or great occurrences, to which we re- t fer, are the wars between the Greeks and Persians, ( which ultimately ended in the defeat of the latter f by Alexander the Great; the war between the Ro- ( mans and the CarthsgRnians, which resulted in ( the dettruction of the latter; the crusades in the t middle ages; the reformation of Luther, and the i discovery of the gold end silvei mines of Mexico j and Peru. All those events exerted great influence t on the world in those tunes, aud that influence, to < a certain extent, is experienced at the present t day. i Coming down to modern times, we find another f great epoch developing itself, and which, from e present appearances, promises to be as wonderful p in its efltcts as any of those which we have men- h tioned. We allude to the vast discoveries of t mineral weahh recently made in California. 1 Now, what will be the effect ot those discoveries < on this country and on Europe 1 We have seen ] that the gold mama has completely thrown in < the shade the agitation and exeitement caused | *y the si aw i y question in Congress, and out ot it; that it is at the present time producing an emigration of our best classes of population, who, even it they do not finu all the gold nvii^ff nr HVpn it thev Ho not finrl unv at a!! will effect an enure revolution on the western shores of the American continent. They are, in 1 either event, laying the Inundation of greatness, I that will, in due course ot time, rival that of the < Atlantic aide. They will lound a western empire, < that will change the whole course of trade, and t make San Francisco on the Pacific, and New 1 Yoik on the Ailanuc, the great receiving and dis* I tributing reservoirs of the wealth, commerce, ma. s uufactures, and productions of the whole commer a cial w or Id. What further changes it will effect, e lime alone can tell. The changes which it may u cause in Europe may be as great. Already the c excitement attendant on the receipt of intelligence a of the discovery of the El Dorado, is almost as n great as it is here. Ships, expeditions, joint-stock t comi-aniee, and adventures, are advertised. I'o- t hUcal disputes, revolutionary thoughts and changes, b fade away before the gorgeous luture, which has been concealed so long Dreams ot gold, .n undefined and boundle.s quantities, disturb the sleep of tali classes of the population of that region of the 0 world ; and Ccbden's financial reform sinks into V insignificance, compared with the placards aud 8 announcements ot trading, mining, and gold r' washing associations. e If the excitement increase in Europe, it will have tne effect of diverting men's minds from the ? subject of political reioim, and, to a great extent, te will draw off ihe adventurous -pints who have c< been the cuute of the revolutions aud agitations which we have seen take place there within the past year The spirit winch animated those men, to; will find vem and scope lor action in another form f?' and shape. It Una be the case, it certainly will be anything but gratifying to 'he friends of politi- he calrtfoim, and amy slop the progress of that spirit which was so long dormant there, but which as- of sumed form and shape under the counsels and aus- ^ pices ol Pope Pius the Ninth, and which over- t? threw Louis Philip, e. This will certainly not be J? desirable ; but taking the past history of the world di us a guide, we ihmk it is highly probable that {jj such will be the case. Whether it will complete- ? ly stifle all lurther attempts at revolution, or whether it will pave tne way for a reaction m public tl sentiment, is more than we can predict ; b it it Bt strikes us, arguing by analogy, that it will protract the consummation which was so evident, at no C| great length of time, a few mouths since. H re Ireland and O'Connkll.?For many years ^ Daniel U'Gonnell, the gieut Irish Liberator, as he m was, no doubt, ironically cu'led, (for the name, it- ** self, is the most cutting irony,) collected immense sums from the poor, but generous, Irish people, us under the name of Rint." All Ireland paid tri- p( bute to Conciliation Hall and O'Connell. Wha g, became of this rint has ever been a mystery. No >n journal dared to open its mouth to make the inqui- jn ru <nr O'Connell hud the knack and the means of /? *" ? ? ? - ua insulting and brow-beating every independent man ^ who would not bow the knee to this Irish Baal.? TJntil he died, the Irish people were literally enslaved, and were payers of tribute to one of the |)e most blustering tyrants that ever lived. Only af- |ie ter his death was the yoke broken by the gallant rt{ eflbrta of the Young Ireland party. By its means, c0 < t'Connell's family lost the succession to the throne of the Liberator, and Ireland became Ires from one tyranny at least, and that a very heavy one. j? But alter all the rint and money paid to Concilia- H(j tion Hall?alter the immense sums collected from , the Irish people, it is curious to read the following announcement of its bankruptcy, which we ex- ' tract from the Cur It Examiner. We give it in our A(n hatred of tyrants, and of all deception, and to expose how they are mere respectable swindlers, whether known by the name ?t Kings or Liberatora. We have always been a friend to the people, f v< and especially to the Irish people, and have always I''? been opposed to tyrants, and pntwln Liberators; hence the bitter enmity against us of them and all * their myrmidons. The following is the C*mpte 'r< 1 Kendnof the extinct government of the lato mon- " 1 arch of ail Ireland. Peace to his ashes. tl < CosciLiATion H?U. *so ihk Prk?i.?Conciliation fUllbae i flared that poition of the Irlub pr-sa to which It .-Ik la lad-bud. four abfltiogn to iho pound? tbatdivilend W(. being all that It declares itself abl>- to pay Porhapa tba pronurlal trees fares worse than tli? metropolitan, but tbeaw are tbe lei ins offered, and, per force, accepted by f the proi liicihJ pioprlwivie. ^anama Raiuioad ?O ir readers are, no doubt' P are that Messrs Howfaud anl Aspiawall, 01 Thr ih city, have obtained the right of way for the be, attraction cf a lailroad across the Isthmus of Stai iDema, fiom Cbagres to 1'aotma, and that ihey tutl ."liatched, a short time Mnce, a cmpany ol letitific rneu to explore and survey the route the lie securing of this fight from the government for N? w Granada, was attended with a great ex- ] ndituri- of time and labor, and accompanied with cjw vast deal nl expeuae. Those difficulties and that M| ipeiiditure, are, however, of no moment when W1| itnpaied to the immense advantages which this wf, ntntry directly, and in a proportionate degree the a||, hole commeicial world, will derive from the ruI nstmction of a railroad that will bring Asia and |otl ir r? mote territory of California within a mode- ?a te distance of both Europe and this country, op] lie subject of connecting the waters of the p)P tcific with those of the Atlantic has occupied j e attention of the world for more than two hnn- Pir ed years past. The benefits which would cer- ^ inly flow from it have not been exaggerated, Wf .d the gTeat wonder is that the work has not (jj en entered upon and completed long before this a|j he right of WMy is. however, at length, secured, nd it is a nr. tier of congratulation that it is in the suds of our own citizens, and that the trade and ommerce oi Abia, the western shores of the .merican continent, and hIho of Europe, must 110 ass through American hands. Indeed, the imuitance of a railroad across the continent can- on ot be ever-estimated. ro It has always been the practice, as it certainly is u" 10 |>olicy, of all governments, to favor projects f great public benefit?such as the one to an /hich we have rtferred. Thus, all our ocean learn.-hip lines have been patronized, not in y way of gift, however, hut by securing to theui ru portion of government business, such as the Wl arrying of the government mails, tfec. As soon 'le s Mr. Aspinwall and his associates had secured le right to cousiruct a railroad across the Isthmus q, f Panama, they app led to Congress for some ncourugement in carrying out their great undei" q iking, not as a gratuity, but as a compensation ^ or services ol a valuable and important nature to * performed. They propobe to nuke a contract vith government to carry the mails, and to coney acrosB the Isthmus, from ocean to oceau, at verjthiDg that might be required of them?stores 00 or the national vtssels iu the Pactiic, arms and p' Munitions oi war, United States troops, naval M itores?in fact, everything?tor two hundred and w< ifty thousand dollars per anuum, a sum which jertaiuly cannot be considered too large; and to t, mbmit, in con&ideration of receiving the contract, 01 o allow Congress to affix the rates of toll which J! hey should chaige on meichandise and passen- > >eis. It would be supposed, when we consider ^ he fact that these gentlemen are the exclusive oi iwnera of the right of way?that they have a coiniltte monojioly of transit across the Isthmus?that, nu n consequence of the discovery of gold in Cali- &< ornia, it is a matter of great importance to have asy access to it; and that, in a commercial ointotview, it is a matter of great momeut to Wi iuve & railroad across the Isihmus. It would be T! upposed that Coogress would have at once emtraced the offer made to them. Instead, how- ^ ;ver, of doing so, they bavo thrown obstacles and tc impediments in the way of Mr. Aspinwall and his si entei prising associates. We are positively surpiiked at the course which certain members ot the ii Senate have thought proper to pursue in the mat- J ler. We expected better things from tlieni. g| Now this is a business which concerns the a whole American people; and it the contract which <; Mr Aspinwall proposes be not entered into, it h< will be a lastine disirruce to Coneress. That bodr *' baa been in seeeion tor many weeks, and as yet ihey have done nothing Their time has been occupied in debating about abstractions that tend h inly to put one section of the country in opposition ey 0 another, and stir up feeing* of animosity and er istied that may lead to the worst consequences- ]01 ^et them, even at this late period of the session, do omething for the interests of the country, and> #n niong other beneficial measures now before them, mpower the proper officer of government to enter Be no the contract with Mr. Aspinwall and his asso- ** lutes, so that we can have, at us early a period tb s possible, an almost direct communication with ^ ot only our Calilornian territory, but the whole Isiatic continent. Do not, for goodness sake, let on be whole session pass over without anything b? eneficial to the country being done. m? we Curious Characteristics oy Orthodox Cathojcity in New York.?Bishop llughes, the head ?? f the Catholic Church in the diocese of New 'oik, is a man of great talent and acknowledged hU bility and erudition; but on matters touching the uU t-ligiou which he professes, he certainly entertains j ome strange notions. Wl In relation to the exile of the Pope, the Bishop's I r rgan in this city, the Frtcmun't Journal, of yes- Tu iday, contains the following sentiments, which ntainly would be more appropriate to the middle cot 5es than to the nineteenth century.? ),D" {From the Freeman's Journal ] put The Liilk or Ilia Hulihim ?In the touching pas- q ral of Bishop Maginn. in another column, will bs uail an allusion to tbe asylum that His Holiness f,, igbt find In tbe Htpublto of the United States.

His Holiness the gag jpe would be secure of safety in the United I Sb" ate?? his jierson would not be liable to assault; id we are certain that he would not be driven >m his pontifical residence if he had one here, he was by his own Catholic subjects in Rome. c re do not aee, therefore, why the "consecrated ut " ot 1'iuk the Ninth might riot bear him with im, eat propriety to the Iniied States.

Tbe very best spirit prevailed during the evening. There were not so many persons present as Ul r to oreate a jam, and there were enough to make things tfc pleasant.
