Twelve o clock wa. the time.appointed for the arrival of the procession in the Park, but, a. u.ual *> ?,ch oc ca.iona, it did not make Its appearance till nearly an hour after. Over lire thousand people were asxembled in front of the City Hall to witness the pageant and the windows and balconies of that edifice were crowded with ?potatoes. A. these were favorable position, from I which to v ew the acen., only the privileged were ad | mittei, act ticket, were accordingly distributed to thoie I ?who came under th.t head Kverv one, hawever. we be ' lieve b.d a fair opptrtun.ty of ?e?ing the pageant, and | if n few bad their corns pinched, they were more than I compensated by the spectacle presented to their adminne gare. The Chief of Police, and a Urge port.oo of tb. I .oree, were on the ground to preaerve ordsr, and their i efforts were attended with signal mcce.e. We ob.erve<t I that on this occa.lon each ofticer wore his baton by his ^ side, like a sword-a decided improvement on the old . way of carrying (t. It gave the men .joite a martial ap pearaore, and added considerably to the whole ellect of their new uniform. At the extreme edge of the plat fine, in frost of tb? City Hall a .t.ge, or step, was pla ed for the Mayor, on which a small white satin flag, witb the word " Mayor and the arms of the city upon it, was placed. Thle at once diitlngniel.ed him from the officials by Whom he was surrounded. About one o'clock, the Major accompanied by th member, of both branclie- of the Common Onunc.l. bearing their .taffi of ofBee, made their app?araac? and took up a position la front of the City Hall. Here the Mayor was Introduced to General Lectin Oo?bi ^ Kenturky. who was pre-e0, by Invitation, to address the veterans o( the war of 181.'. w|( dreued in a hunting .hlrt, such as wa. worn by the hooters of that day, and nhich wa. at one time la the poeees.ion of Daniel Boone.

It wa* iu vindication of our right to trj.de ?in vindication or tfae principle that the flag mack the ship free, and to preveut the Impressment of our citUens, that the country declared war. And, allow me to say there was another experiment that we pro red successfully. It wag doublet then whether the differ ent aim* of human industry would unite under the (lag in war, the merchant, the mechanic, tue manufacturer and the asrieultuiiit It was supposed by aotus, whea we delisted war tor sailers' rights, that the manufac turers of the country would fall liaok. and that the far mere would remain between the bandies of the plough. V lint was the result? Look at my own gallaut State l>*y<.nd the mountains? we had no trade upon the ocean ? no sons in British dungeons ? no prisoner-. In Dart moor ? and yet. when the tocsin of war soundel, and tb ? Irerideut of the United Statee asked the Governor o Kentucky to furnish him with five thousand meu, th hunter.- left the hills, the farmer* the fields, and the hoys in the shops their planes and hammers, and took up the sword and musktt, and fivo thousand men were muttered into the service without a finale draft And sllow me to call your attention to another Incident con nected with our btate, and illustrative of alt the Western Stater. The 1'resident wrote to Governor Shelby, o Kentucky, before Perry bad achieved his victory, but whin he had gone to meet the enemy, and he anticipated that they would soon be ours. In the Wostcrn States we have no ebbing and flowing of the tide? our streams are all rivulets until they meet the Mississippi. There are no double faced politician* there, but our men caine down trom the hills like our noble little streams, which never look behind them till they are lost In the Mediterranean ol the South ? the Gull of Mexico. On the 10th day of August, 1813, Gov. Shelby Issued his proclamation for five thousand men to meet him at Newport, opposite Cincinnati. On that day six thousand live hundred Ken tucky volunteers assembled on horseback and crossed the river to march to Canada. P.very county in Ken tucky except one was represented, and that one had forty buuteis on the way to uf. Then, at the close of the cam|>aign, (!<n. Harrison wrote to Gov. Shelbv th.it Com l'erry was to meet the enemy, and asked him to furnish live thousand more men. They were raised and marched to the frontier, where we arrived In time for some of the Kentucky volunteers to meet l'erry at Lake Erie. We had never seen deep water before, and yet tome of our boys went on board the fleet to help Perry to lick the British on 'the 10th of Scptem her. Then we crossed into Canada, and arrived at Mai den on the 1st of October. Proctor, the infamous, who bad stood by and seen my brother soldiers killed and slaughtered at Kort Meigs, where I satv him stand un moved while the Indiaus were doing the work of death upon the priaonets? of whtm I was one, for I had the mislortene to be shot down and captured ? Proctor lied from Maiden live dsys before we landed. In five days after. General Harrison, Governor Shelby, and the Hunt ers of Kentucky overtook tbtra on the Thames, where we whipped the British crowd and killed a portion of the Indians, with Tecumceh at tfceir b-ad. We hail no sail ors there, I say ; but our soldiers became sailors in the emergency, ami fought upon the lake, do much for the West. Now, allow me to say, fellow- citizens and brother soliliere, the same experiment was made on the whole frontier, &nd with,the name success. At the beginning of the wsr they nentout Wilkinson, Hampden and Hull? Hnil w ho surrendered and disgraced himself? the others resisted. Then there were GcnerU* Harrison and llrown ; ?es, ftllow soliliert, and one of the boys who was with Town on that cccaaion it here now ? he lias got a spot ob his forehead which ho received in that war? there hu is (pointing to Mr. Thomas B. Ridder, Councilman from the Nineteenth district) and I see you have elected him one of vour Councilman. He swears he is younger than I am: but I don't believe him. (Laughter.) Now, I say the militia effected all this ? there were few regu lars. l ook on the Nlsgaia frontiers, where Pike and fcott nud Jesup and Gait.es and Wool and others gained for their martial deeds a place on the page ol history. I don't pretend to recapitulate the events of the war upon. the ocean. 1 will not relate the incidents of the frent battles on that element : but the British said wa ad only a few cook-boats upon the tea. We in tho We*t felt a little delicate on that subject ? we did ex K>ct tuat your cities on the -t aboard? Philadelphia, i-w York, and others ? would he knocked into u cocked hat? that tlify would he bombarded aad taken. We had but a few fri.;atrs, and I recollect that Captain I 'acres said if Lo could meet the Constitution he would walk hei deck In forty minutes after. Weil, one day tUey dis covered a vessel sailing under American colors, mil be was delighted at the prospect, and that his wishes were so toon realised. The Constitution? for it was her ? came closer, and I (acres fired one broadside after another, but she replied not. i)acr?s expeued that lie would soon set tie lier hash ? and in forty minutes he jid nalt the deck ?but it was as a pritaw of war, and his vessel, theGuer ricre, wa* knocked Into "a cocked hat." This victory was hut the precursor of many gloriouqyriciorie* we (a n* d upon tUeor.o.n. We never m-t a Vessel of the British n lien we had anything like an eijual forcc that we aid not whip them, l'orty yearn h*y? elapsed aiooe then, aid you hate not heard of an American lielng pressed by a Lrltish man-of war. We taug'it them that lesson. Perry beat them on Like Erie, and Mcdonough on Lake ( bain plain, and on land, too, we prove I the ex pert? eat that a free government could be as succeeaful in war as in peac?, and that tier citizens could become soldiers when teijutred by their country. We felt that each mar. wasa sovereign- that he had a sovereign's heart within blm, and thut he wasgnot the subject of any man, or womar tltber, exattil his wife o~ seeeth'a.-t. (Laughter.) Fonoe < ere killed, it is true, but their nsimc* are Immortal and their cbildre.i are left to do for them whit they would do f'ir themselves were they heie. 1st n.e call Nour att< ntion to the results of that great war. They are seen in the increased respect we have gained from foreign nation ? in making us love moi - an 1 more the fathers of Americas liberty, who won our freedom- In making us all feel the t'orca of ths mot to of the Kentucky coat of aims, 'Tnited we stand? di vided we fall." I bel'eve, I nd I think I will ?reet a res ponse from t,verv soldier as I did when I addressed the Veterans at Wa Ling'.on, when I swore them to stand by the Union with all i'. - compromise' ? do you say that.' fa spontaneous "ays" was the reply givsn by the whole veteran c rps)? is there a negative here? No, not one. May that brul.t eyed god of day still roll on, and from Its uprising in the broad Atlaatic and go ng down In the placid Pacific, ever shine over a free, united and happy people. I have one sentiment, said General Combs in conclusion, which I wish to propose? Itls the sentiment which was adopted st Washington by the convention of veterans, on the ith of January last : ? Resolved, Thai while we deeply deplore the untimely death of so many of our brethren In arms, we pledge ourselves ever to aid and protect the le-reaved widows and orphans, snd here, ou this most interesting occa sion, we ester, d to ekcli other the right band of fenow ship, and bind each other by every sacred obligation to stand by etch other while we live, In defence of our rights at home ar.d agreed. The resolution was unanimously adopted, and three hearty cheers were given for General Combs, who, at the conclusion of hit address, shook hinds warmly with ( ouncilraan Ridder.

Indeed, aa early at l'J o'clock they might have been m?q entering In an unbroken itream, and when the three Hem of galleries hail become an crowded that a child could not have been wedge I In, tbe police rery properly cloaed the doora and refuted admittance to any more. To the activity and vigilance of a Htroag foice atationed on the *pot, aa well as to the eflorti of Individual oBicer* to accommodate aa nuay aa poislble, the public are much Indebted; and to their decision and forethought m >y be attributed the ab sence of any aerloua :icci<i< n1 ? i \ueh an i:amen*e aaaeui blage. Aa aoon aa the proceaiion arriveJ, tho military e*cort and various chapter* of the Order Bled ifcto the body of the theatre, completely Ailing the parquet and parquet circle. This occupied about an hour, ami when aU who

could had taken their aeata, the apactacle from tbe stage waa one of aurpaaiing grandeur. Truly the opera houie yeaterday presented auch a eight a* it never pre - tented before, and will probably never present tgn'n Till* was the kind of opera which went like nn eloalrio shock to people'* heart*, and tilled the mind Ot it moat ordinary and oareleas apectator with wonder and with ?we. For there waa something woudrou* and aouietbing awful In that mighty throng ? the more Impreaalve when the oauie that brought them together was pondered over in all Ita bearn ga. Thi* asaemblagi1 w*a no party, or *ect, or cllqne? it waa the people. lhere were proliably fifteen tbouaaud peraona wltbln tbe building, to aay nothing of a* many more outaide, who sought admittance in vain The parquet and par quet circle, aa w? have aaid, were filled with the Chap ter* of the ordor. In the dreaa circle, second circle, gallery, proscenium boxes, and wherever stanlmg room rould l>e procured, waa the audience ? the whole pre "enting one immenre maaa of bead* innumerable The ladlee (and we believe that all the beauty and fashion ot New York were collected th?re,) occupied the mo.t pro minent *cata, the gentlemen b- log more in the rear. The atage, decirated appropriately with tha banners of tbe Order, waa Qllcd withUie ciergy, invited guest*, the Grand Marshal and hi* aO, tlie delegates from the Arch Chanoery of the Order, ofticer^ paat oBict-r* and num ber* of tbe Chanccry of thl* and other State*, and of ficer* of military eacort. The aombre light which now and then find* it* way Into the Opera llouae, gave an imposing aolemi.ity to a acene which certainly *ur paaned all former celebration* of Washington* birthday by the Order of t'nited Americans.
