Wr lrum that the Kuropa had not arrived at Halifax at 4 o'clock on Thursday afternoon, but she has undoubtedly reached there ere this. We shall receive hern us to-day. The Hermann is in her eighteenth day from Southampton. The l*?wa fr'ini < alt Torn Ih?-Important Com. nirrdal Treaty nltli (lie Sandwich Iain 1 <l?. With the arrival of the steamship Crescent City, yeaterda), w e have one month's later intelligence from California, to the details of which we devote a large portion <?f :>ur column* to-day. They wjl ! be found important and interesting. The steamer brings over a million of dollars in gold dust Hurt r; eci?-, exceeding any shipment yet from the Pacific to this port. Gold continues abundant in the miner, and the health of the diggers is good. Ship* and emigrants continue to pour in by hundreds ?.nd hy thousand*, from all <iuurters, there being on the let of November one hundred British vt?s?l? in the port of San Francisco. .Anione the passengers by the Crescent City, are Mr Judd, Mininer uthe King of the Sandwich Island*, and the twosons of the King They come to visit our government, and the governments of Kngland and Fiance, in reference to the recent outrages committed at Honolulu, by a Frenc h Admiral, in a m izure of the forts and a couple of the slaps of the island. Another of the passengers is Mr. Edwtird Conner, the bearer of a treaty lately concluded bet wet n the government of the Sandwich Islands and Mr. Gomez, our new commissioner. The treaty, we understand, is a very liberal one, and embraces a provision for the estab- ; lishment of a line of American mail steamers from California to China, to stop at the Sandwich Islands. I Mr C onr.t r It ft last evening for Washington, with his despatches. Another important piece of information is the resignation by Mr. T. Butler King, of Georgia, of his B-at in Congress from that State, which h appears to have lehii'iuished for the prospect of being returned a Senator from California. lie and Lieut. Col. Fremont were the two most prominent candi- i dites in the field for the U. S. Senate. The resignation of Mr. King, of course, cut* oil" all calcu- I lations of his return to the House, and L' ivea a va cnncy to be filled by tlie Governor of Georgia (de. mo< rai), ??r by special election. The State constitution is adopted, and by some ore of the bearers of despatches from the new State, will probably be delivered to the President ' to-day, to be by him laid before Congress. The ftovico is in the document, a*~ large as life. This constitution will be found anions our news. The overlaid emigrants were slowly arriving, having suffered dreadfully in the Great llasm. The details of the news will be found to be full . of interest and variety Politics, gold diffging, j lution, frolicking and gambling, wrr* cairy(nB everything them. Taking il altogether, jJ.yy ate having n perfect carnival in California. I The iMnMiut of gold dust which has urrivd hi the United States, up to thin date, ia about ?t c mUlimt ?/dollar? ; the additional amount w hich in suppo >-d lo have to Europe i* estimated at tenor tu-r'rt nulinn\i.

The coiire of the IloiMn authorities ia simply lucons'xtent with the civilisation ot the present sue. They have no riijht to impose this se< ret examination.

I Fince the inauguration of Washington, as first President of the republic, no chief magistrate has been called to the office with more perfect unanimity of popular feeling?no one has been greeted with bincsrer acclamation when his Inaugural Addr* >s waB delivered?for the administration of no one hits more flattering auguries been pronounced. For the-trme, party feeling gave place to a nobler bentinient?selfish Hnd profligate political gamesters, perceiving the irresistible drift of public sen timent. threw un the card*, and left the i>eoi>le to manage the game for themselves So vast were the services < ienerul Taylor had rendered the nation? so meekly had he home his honors?so brilliantly hud lie reflected our fame on he i-hores ol the old world?so reluctantly, withal, hid he awaited the fciijirerue honors of the republic, a sentiment of national gratitude overwhelmed the barriers of party, fand he became President, astlie early chieftains of the Christian faith became Bishops of lloin:*? by popular acclamation. A few of the old friends of Mr. C'lay, on the one side, long attached to his person ?nd proud of his fame, made a final struggle to write his name on that eternal column where, by force of statistics, if in no other way, the named so written become immcjttal. A aiill larger number, who had during apoliMcal life-time obeyed the mandates of Mr. Van Buren, a sort of Gijethea Fuustus in our political world, filed ofl'atthe last moment fromthe regular opposing column, and by deseriingtheir strength from their party added impetus to the general movement. But these noisy displays were only countereddies in the greatstreain which, in its irresistible sweepings, was to level every barrier, and bring the hero citizen to the top of the commonwealth. From the day we proposed his nnine for the great office he now fills, till his election, we entertuined no doubt of his being brought to the post by the unbonght, uncorrupted suffrages of his fellow countrymen. A common conviction filled the American heart?that he was an honest man? (and God knows things had come to such | n pass that we needed one)?and would be the President of the nation, and not ol a party. The country had reason to think so, first, from his characttr. During a long life of public service, away from scenes of political excitement?iu the everglades of Florida, or on the solitary western frontier?he had obeyed |the orders of his superiors, rustained the honor of his country, and shed for her his blood. Distinguished for a bravery as cool us the Spartan's?a heroism as brilliant as a ('rusadt r"s?a simplicity as great as a Cincinnati^, and a patriotism as pure as Washing ton's?tne nation found in lus character a sufficient pledge. Hut other. Had, to many persons, more satisfactory, guarantees were oll^?ed, by hio own u-ordi. For when this noble man, whom the people had chosen to be its great repre" sentative, took upon him his office. his first words confirmed the judgment of the nation, uiid he declared that he would not be the President of a party, but of the whole people; that he would allow no man to be prescribed tor his political opinions ; that lie hud no friends to reward, no enemies to punish. From one border of the country to another, the declaration was received with exultation, and many simple minded, honest, but credulous men believed that the triumph of party was over?that proscription was at an end?that the entire nation would once more repose, after her ferocious struggles, under the broad shadow of the great tree of national union. To the superficial observer, it did for a while seem so. There were few exclamations from any i|u?rter but those of satisfaction?few demonstrate ns, except of contentment. The heart of this mighty republic beat to pulsatioua of joy ; and wel| for the republic would it have been had all this continued. Hut a sudden, and, at the tune, almost 1 inexplicable, change came on The sun which broke forth ?o gloriously from the east wa? suddenly ectip.vd. It'giew dark, while it wasyet day. Hard" ly six months of President Taylor's administration had pasted nway,b> fore a universal, an all-|x*rvadinj{ change became manifest in the public mind. Was it in the popular feeling towards General Taylor himself 1 Had those who made him President lost their confidence in, or their resect for, the mini Had the sentiment tf national gratitude lor h i illustrious public services been eititigut?h-d! Hid 'he people sus| ect his honesty, or doubt hi* patriotism? Pv no means!

Why was it that at last, when the election rrturns were all in, the people who had made him President by wrUmoli m, would not give him members enough in his first Congress to command a majority or elect a Sjieakei? It 14 perfectly cer- J fill) that General Taylor now found liiin?elf in a position of #mbarrustment and surprise, nud th it 1 lor some time lie could not s?lve the mystery.

They not only Jul this, but they knoir it, and this feeling and this know ledge have made them vote for men wlio will vote the administration. Consequently, unless these men give place to others who will redeem the pledges of (Jen. Taylor, he mu?t become the victim. There is no other mode of relief ironi the merciless party proscription of ?om? members el the cabinet, except by sending to Conirrea.* the political friends of the men who have been pro. scribed. And the people have done it. Godsend that Central Taylor may see this b'fore the consequences are visited upon him?e|f?for he will find that however pure and generous and patriotic he may be, his cabinet must be so too, or term so, if lie would shun the blow which nn^lit t>> fell < tdy on the heads of the guilty In a repnSlic, the i l'r< side nt must stifier the reproach, and ben J under the idmni, of the n?ts of his councillors. A king m y, end gem-rally does, esc ip? It?a President never, hmjlsnd Im* hid but one king whi se difLirrtce or blood the nation demanded.

The inaulta this man hai heaped ?|>on the divine form of liberty, aa it ro?e, in all ita primitive beamy, from the twilight catacomb* of the Kternal City, are chargeable only to himnlf. Ttie curaea ol Europe even now cluster around the head of ihf chief of Frtnf e, who wnt hia chi valric countr>-men to cruth a M*ter republic in luly, while hia elder brother, the barbarian of the forth, *u pressing the h'e blood trom the lacerated bosom of Huagary. This ia the aeatiment of mankind?the law of destiny?and General Taylor will form no exception to the general rule. To eztraate himself from the dilemma, he must dinnuM his principal secretaries. The incubus ia weighing him down like a mill-stone, and he must shake it o(T, or sink. The men who put him there areclamoring te have them out. The people knew,when th*y elected Gen. Taylor, that ha was uot familiar with tha details, only with the (principles of civil government But they knew that he had other qualities vastly more important. His heart was filled with honest und incorruptible patriotism ; and he could find a cabinet of statesmen fully capable of furnishing him with all (tie facilities for carrying oil the great machinery of government. There can be no doubt that General Taylor made all his pledges with honesty, and that they have all been perfidiously broken by the cabinet. It follows, therefore, that since he would not knowingly have appointed men who would misrepresent his honest sentiments, that he finds himself in the mortifying position of being obliged to gf t men who care more f.A<.nlri' ifiun .^rtu u,lw>.?!ll l.ij generous pledges?who will allay, rather than irritate, the already exasperated mind of the nation There would be very little purty spirit among the people, were they not goaded on by corrupt and Bfllit-h leaders, who inH.tinr> passion, only to increase their own power? like the desperadoes of the rabble, who infuriate the mob only to become its leaders. The country is tilled with tliete cursebearing profligates?Ned Jitin times on a large scale ?who do for the nation what he did for the mob of New York. The difference between them ta only this?the one appeata to the blood-thirsty passions of the mob,the others to the prescriptive spirit ofap my ? the one relies on slung-shot, revolvers, brothtls, gambling hells, over all of winch whiskey sits as the presiding divinity?the others depend on intrigue, corruption, bribery, and bias, and overall their deliberations presides the remorseless spirit of proscription. The one hold their sittings in cellars und grog shops?the others assemble in elegant saloons, and assume the dignified epithet of coun* cils and cabinets?the one are caught and sent to State prisons and penitentiaries?the others batten uj on the spoils of office? the former burn down cities?the latter kindle conflagrations among na loiis. Such is party spirit?such the genius and fiuits of political proscription. Did the people of this country, in voting for General Taylor, have the faintest idea that with his advent would begin a reign of proscription more merciless and universal than the nation had ever before been cursed with 1 Why, the Secretary of the Home Department has displayed a spirit wor- ' thy of the days of Robespierre; and the Secretary of ^tate has made us the laughing stock of every cabinet in Europe.

No wonder England, who wanted P.trien, as she hus Suez and Gibraltar, thought she could seize it and sanctify the robbery by setting up, not an ordinary diplomatic man of straw, but by crowning a thick-lipped, drunken negro boy, and in hi" name bully Mr. Clayton into concession.

Stoddard, of the Crescent City, that the captain of the British steamer Avon reported at Chugres that "a disturbance bid occurred at Costa ltica, but the particulars of which he was not informed." According to our previous ndvices from Coat* Kica, we exacted that the next account wouM brim: us intelligence of an outbreak. It will be recollected by those interested in such matters, that in the late negotiations between Nicaragua and Mr. Spuer, the American chargt, it uppesra that low Jose M de Castro, the Governor of Costa Ilica, had placed himself under the protection of |he Knglith go\?tnm<*ftt, and was aiding the English, thiough his minister in London, and individually in Coaia Kica, in their claima on lli* San Juan llivrr. < hir previous advices stated, thai, in consequence cl this, als<>( of the growing unpopularity o| Castro, and I lie draw of n portion of the inhabitants to obtain the frien 1-hip of the 1'nited States, instead of that of Kuillind, an outbreak w as d lily expected.

It appears that duricg the forenoon, a (tout healthy looking farmer, about lorty > eiirn of file, by the name of t buries Morrell. callt d at the J- migration OiMce. and stated that he was from Monroe county, thin State, where he resided, and owned afann of 60arr<*; hut remarked, that he was much iu want of female help, so necessary for the comforts and social happiness of a farmer in a retired neighborhood, and iu order to suit hlm?elf with tne requirtd help. he bad travelled to New Vork. and called ( n the t onimtMioners of Emigration. belietlog that amen/ their exter-ive importation of Irish lass--*, be would Finn be >,uited. Mr. 1 hatcher, the police superiLltnuebt rery willingly exhibited his stook on haud. Tbe fanner went through the list of females, apparently with much care; Sor:e he pronouueed to be too eld. ai d others too young. Mnaliy. he espied. sitting in onel corner, a rosy cheeked, plump, liealthy looking Irihti girl. This watt tbe girl for the farmer. Ills eyes began to sparkle when lie inquired her name. She blUrhcd, and raid Margaret Mc!ntyre The farmer was struck with her appearance. She was tl en a*knd if the would like to litre a place In the couu try. in." tilii Margaret. " I prefer a country rituation, and would he willing aud pleased to ba>e one" I' lie farmer looked at Margaret again and again; then he walked around and viewed the women once more Rut not being able to )>l*a-e his fancy better, returned again t<> Margar.-t and after some private conversation with \ir Thatcher, the farmer proposed to marry tbe girl believing that to he the he-t method of making h<r familiar ami careful in the management of his domestic household. The question was popped to the fair dams< 1. who, blushing dropped her In ad and consented. The farmer made short work of the whale business, and requested the knot to be tied at once, as he wished tofreturn'bowe. Fortunately, at this time, Justice Hlakily'was uesr by. whom Mr Thatcher railed in, and Iu a I title less time thaa nothing at all the farmer and Miss Mclntyre were made one; the clerk reading the cereni?ay by kls-lng the bride, who blushed deeply, end the husband laugln d A certificate was then given l>y the magistrate and the happy p?lr left the oflic? for their country hi me , and may peace and htpploess attend lh?ui flie scene atteuding this sii gular clrcuinstaece was one of deep Interest to the emigrants who witaerttd the hsppy union. The lucky bride had leen but a few days in the country; such chances, however, we presume, don't occur every day. The affair show* conclusively the bem-Ats Jeiitvd from being t cod-looklig.
