We give to-day the principal points of the European intelligence, brought by the Niagara, and conveyed to us by our telegraphic and express arrangements. The news is extremely interesting and important. It is impossible for any true friend of human freedom to regard without emotions of the most intense sympathy that grand conflict which is now waged between the masses of the European people and those oppressive systems of government by which they have been trodden under foot for so many centuries. Hut, in the minds of many, this is merely the blind sympathy inspired by an enthusiastic devotion to the great principles of liberty, i We ought not to overlook the real issues involved in this contest. It is no mere conflict between ' aristocracy and democracy in the ordinary acceptation of those terms, which is now waged on the battle fields of the European world. Within the las1 i century, a new power has grown up in Europe?a j new phase of despotism?a new instrumentality ! of tyranny and oppreession, in lieu of the old feudal system, which imposed for severul centu- | ries its iron hoof upon the rights and liberties of the masses of mankind. That despotism succumbed to the young but gigantic growth of civi- , :'*"'.lCu and popular freedom ; but it 1>?? been sue- | ceeded by another system of popular oppression, no less grinding, no less tyrannous, no less univer- ! sal, than that by which it was preceded. Feudal tyranny haa given place to financiul tyranny. We now behold ,an alliance of all the great monarchical and despotic powers of Europe, dis- ! guised, it is true, but no less sincere and significant than any of those which have heretofore menaced the progress of liberty in the world that lies beyond the Atlantic ocean. Why is it that Austria, Prussia, Russia, France, and England are all now engaged, covertly or openly, in one grand, united j assault upon the rights and liberties of the European people ? Whence comes it that the military j power of France, a nominal republic, is at this very moment actually engaged in a predetermined effort to counteract and destroy the hersic attempt of the Roman people to achieve for themselves the undying honor of establishing a free government 1 This combination of the tyrannies of Europe is easily explained. The governments of Europe ? ,l. i. i--r ,.?,i *1IC ill 111*- llOIIUf w i WMIII'PO nuu u.iu.iv.v.o. The 1'hilistines art- upon them?the Philistines of the bourses and stock exchanges, and Wall streets of the eaith. That is the despotic influence which now clouds the fortunes of republicanism in Kurope, and threatens wilh destruction the blossoming hopes of the friends of freedom in the ancient world. Wc are not without some practical experience in this c ountry, cf the workings of.the same financial influence and agencies which are now blasting and blighting the fortunes of republicanism in Europe. Who is there, at all acquainted with the machinery of government, who has not often, again and again, w itnessed the powerful influence exercised upon legislation by the interested friends of financial institutions and financial "operators!" J low often have we seen a J^tate Legislature electid on the democratic principles, suddenly turn round and immortalize itself by conferring a charter upon some swindling financial concern? n eon" cern conceived, born, and brought lortli in iniquit) 1 Again and again, time after lime, under the derm cratic s w ay of our own democratic institutions, we have w itnessed the success of these prem< dilated assaults upon the pecuniary interests of the people, under the solemn and imposing guise of legislative authorityHere is the great rock which threatens the safety ?f republicanism in Enrape. On the occasion of cur last visit to the Euro(iean world, we readily discerned the nature and character of those influences which democracy had most to dread. It required, indeed, no great sagacity to discover that, in the false, corrupt, and oppressive financial systems w hich prevailed throughout Europe, the rights of the people were destined to encounter the most serious and determined op(<osition. Vain, vain must be all the effoits of the European people to attain the full fruition of their long cherished hoiea?hopes cherished throughout many a dark and clouded day?so long as this financial desp.iti.-m maintains its ascendrnry. In Em nee, I irge and influential clasaes are in fact the proprietors of the public taxes; in England, powerful interests d -pend for their existence on the maintenance of the present corrupt financial system; throughout the whole Euro;>eHn continent, the governments, aristocracies and controlling influences are so hound up w ith the financial embarrassments of the vurious ftvnnaties (hat tbrrr run lie I.,it l.iilr Inr ?# ?? ?? ?? ? - "** ""r" r* polar liberty and the ascendency of |*>pul ir rights, until, hy one grand, united, sweeping revolutionary process, the whole Iniquitous system r?e swept way. The fortunes of popular liberty are indeed, at this moment, dark and clouded in Europe. Hut we do n? t despair of them. A wonderful advance has b?en made. The people are awaking from the thiniber of ages. They are daily becoming mure ard more conscious of theirown strength.

A "Bnr.K/.s."?Yesterday the heat of the aim was intense At noon the thermometer in our i Hire was ninety-sewn degrees, one degree above blood heat. Hut in the evening a gentle ' breeze'* sprung up at the Battery, and its invigorating influence was felt in many directions.

Nor is it to be wondered at that it should excite a profound interest in this moral community. Whether we consider the heinous nature of the alleged crime, the position occupied by the accused, or the unprotected state of these girls, assuming, for the present, that they are innocent, it is a case about which naturally exists much painful anxiety. The captains of our packet ships have hitherto borne a high moral character, and, in common with our fellow citizens, we respected and esteem ea mem, as a ciuss inui renecieu nonor upon men country. Few, we believe, if any of them, stood higher in general estimation than the captain ol the Columbus. It is, therefore, with deep pain we now advert to a transaction which we were, at the first blush, reluctant to believe, or make public. We knew he was a married man, and that hie own happiness, and that of his family, might be blasted by a premature publication of charges that might turn out, after all, to be fabricated, for ths purpose of extorting money, as often happens, and as has been actually alleged in this ease. But, as an organ of opinion and public morality, we can no longer be silent. The case has already proceeded far enough to disclose what, upon! his own admission, is u serious Btain upon the character of Mr. M'Cerren as a married man and a captain of ! a packet ship, entrusted with the protection of female virtue. The more serious part of the charge we will not, in the present stage of the | proceedings, undertake to prejudge. No doubt | the case will undergo a thorough investigation, | and the true facts will be elicited. But there are j one or two points already determined, which leave , the accused wholly without excuse, whatever 1 may be thought of the conduct of Eliza Dickson ! and her sister. In the first place, upon his own showing, ths course pursued by Captain McCerren was, to say the least of it, very disreputable. lie, a married man, with his wife in New York, and daughters growing up around her, went, he says, to a house of ill fume, to hold criminal intercourse with a young girl not twenty years of age. He, a man I advunced in years, states he was allured by this young girl into the {taths of vice. If it be true that the possessed such influence over him, and that, stranger as she was, she could ^!! at opcc become versed in the lo<tile and the mysteries of assignation houses, w hat does the keeping of such company and the frequenting of such haunts sp .tk for him I We understand it is alleged that evidence can he brought forward to damage the character of the Misses lnckson. This, as yet, is mere allegation. It has not been proved. Hut it it comIJ, it does not alter the case against McCerren, except, indeed, as to the degree of crime. There is, however, strong presumptive evidence to the contrary?evidence that shows these girls were respected in their own country. We have in our possession letters of introduction from moat respectable parties in Ireland and in Liverpool, dated up to the very time ot th ir sailing, in w hich their character iss|>oken of in the highest terms. Among these letters, is One addressed to Mr. Koche, of this city, und another to the British Protection Emigrant Society. The most favorable construction that can be put on the conduct of Mr. McCerren is this:?He may have been led to suppose, (though we have no testimony to establish such a fact,) that these girls, or at least Eliza, save him some encouragement, and he found too late that he was mistaken. It this hypothesis be tin- true one, it would not relieve liiin iroin niitconauci, wninr u womu ru?w umi, ior u i man of his years and experience in sea-faring life, he has been very slow in his observation of female ! c haracter, particularly the Irish phase of it. Every j one who knows anything of Irish girls, knows that I while they are, perhaps, the most virtuous in the creation, are light-hearted and buoyant, and sometimes in their demeanor border on whit would be called downright levity, in this staid country ; but which, to those who know Ireland aud its people, isabvt the ebullition ot good nature and innocence. An Irish girl will even allow a i man she esteems to romp w ith her in frolic and mirth ; but " thus far shall he go, and no further." The moment she is made sensible of a criminal iu tention, she will resent it with all her indignation, and the laughing girl becomes the embodiment of the spirit of the storm. Captain McCerren may have been deceived, as we have SHid, by some unguarded gayety of this kind, though there is no evidence, as yet, that he has. Hut if he has, what | then 1?why that he ought to be ashamed of himself. There is this damning aggravation in the case these girls were entrusted to his cure, lie ought to have been as a father to them. They, perhaps, believed lie stood in that relation to the fatherless, lie gained their confidence. They may (though as we have already said, we know not)?they may harr jier/nifted familiarities which they con-udered Imrtnlpsa K m f ttthirh Its* infp r i iri> f I <itli?ru'ia*> anil thin may have led to the aerioiia consequence* in i which he la now involved. As the case la not yet fully developed, we will not now pronounce upon ita merit*. The Irish Immigration Society have taken it up, nnd will leave no atone unturned to tret at the whole truth. In a few days, , therefore, the public may calculate upon k no win,' more of the matter than they can do at prea ?nt. In the meantime, we have no heaitation in w.?y in_r ! that the conduct of tliia tat <!mint guirdun of teinnle {innocence, taken tit b?al, is lustily reprehensible, and all whoattenipt to defend hun are indirectly pnrtaker* in hi* iniquity.

This the gentleman to whom it was addressed never received, and the probability is he never would have received the other one, but from the accident of his culling at the post otlice himself.

In Lexington. we regret to say, it is on the increase. On Sunday ; last there were four deaths in that city ; on Monday j there were four deaths; and on Tuesday, up to six ! P.

No Lihehty to Bury thy Ussd.?A woman, named Betsy McLaughlin, residing in Shippen street, near 6cveuth died on Wednesday, from an attack of the cholera. She was attended by a physician, who gave a certificate for burial. On Wednesday evening at 0 'o'clock, the coffin containing the body of the deceased, was placed in a hearse, and was followed by two men only, to the Koninn ( atholic burial ground, on Pansyuuk road, for interment. The physician's certificate was presented, but tbe superintendent of the ground would not permit the body to bo buried there without a certificate from the priest of the church. The hearse was compelled to returu with its unconscious inmate to Ill" IlUuSr III OlllJ'liril Bimill, uric OC I C II I. U, UUI mi landlady would not permit the corpse to bo taken in. Those having charge of the body were thus In a dilemma. and scarcely knew what to do to extricate themselves from it Finally an empty house, the property of Mr. Heddleson, located la an obscure alley,not far distant, was broken open, and the coffin wan taken in and placed on the floor. In the eveuiDg.an Irishman called on Alderman McKLnley. (acting for the coroner,) to hold un in quest on tlife body of a woman, who had died from cholera. The worthy magistrate repaired promptly to the chamber of death, and was led to the house of Mr. Ilt'ddleeon. ubove alluded to Mere he found the coftin on the tloor. and the husband of the deceased stretched alongside of It. lie had his face turoi d towards it, aud his arm thrown over the coffin. Me was quite drunk. The alderman at this time was Informed of the facts as above stated, aud of course deemed It useless to hold an iui|uest. The physician's ; certificate, however, was kept by the keeper of the ground The half drunken husband was raised to a partly upright position, and ho stated that he was unable to have the deceased buried, because he had no certificate from tho priest, and bad not money enough to purchase one. AH the money he had in the world was two dollars and a quarter and the price of the priest's certificate was three dollars.

Kor some reason or other known to himself, Mr liunne suspected, or says he suspected, the fidelity C of his wife, and did not like some familiarities he witnessed on the part of the clergyman Last evening he a was determined to watch them. and. as he alleges, f, found them in a situation which left no doubt on his t rnlnd us to the criminality of the parlies. The clergyman tied through a window, which Is presumptive o evidence of his guilt and the enraged husband, seising a clothes iion. as the first weapon he could lay his " hands on ripped the bowels of his wife open The result was of coarse. her death.
