TE1R1BLE BATTLE ON TWENTY-SECOND AND TWENTY THIRD OF MARCB. from Camp before SeUastopol, March 22, in London Times ] For tbe last half nour? it is now 10.45, P. M.? a fa tight has been ra.tog all along our front. To a Btaa,1,?? on Cathcart's HU?, in front of the Warih Biwiu, the whole of tie Russian linen are re jsalst is successive glimpses by burst* of red flam*, and tfc* blight star- lite flashes of musketry twinkling all over Ue black exoanse b?t?eaus and the town, for three er four miles in ler.gtb, shov that a fierce context * Ming en before the tranches of the allies.

It la curious to note tha eagerness of the ny?n on such Mansions ; they swarm ont or their toots to tbe lioea tn fcaat, and watch the progress of the fight, a* tar as they ana ma?e it out, with the deepest interest., and their ?whispered comments are most amusing?" That's a live ab?M from tne French." " Nloasoo is getting his b?lly aA" "I wish they'd let us no at that, and we'd not waste so much pow.ler," Ac. Ihe Hashes of tte cannon ??ark pretty distinctly the flowings and ebblnga of the ?!e of war. If the Hessian a una are thunder. ng away be sure their men are ta'l ng hack.

To marrow I hope to b? able t) learn something it it, tat the difllsulty of ascertaining the partica ^a? of attacks like these is utterly Incredible. Kven the etaff officers ? even the generals themselves ? seldom know anyth:ng respecting tho proceeding of t il a day after they have taken pl-tce, aul a bj<'aiilir hears with surprise warm controversies ssndk military tn?n as to tbe direction tn which a shell ft earning at night, aad as to the battery ? whether French ?r English ? from wht;h it has been sent.

We bad last night a roost holly contented eoinbat, one *(ry glorious far onr troopa, on our right attack, opp? Kiie the Malakoff Tower. About 11 o'clock at night the enemy attempted a general aortie on thia aide. In which be appears to have employed no leaa than ft/teen bull ions, stated by the Russian prisoners to be each one thousand strong. These troopa, divided into two column*, advanced In a body. and. with savage howling* attacked the head of the roadway we bar* formed in front of onr parallel for reaching the ambuscade* pre viously occeped by the enemy, ambuscades which it ia our intention to connect strongly one with another, so a* to make of tbein a place d'armtt. Repulsed three times and ttree time a led bark by their officer*, the Russian* were compelled to abandon their plan of occupy ing thia point, which waa defended by some companies of the third regiment of Zouave*, under the command of Lieutenant Coionel Ranon Tb* oi-tnhat there waa ob atinate, and haa o>>at uh dear, but haa indicted on the enemy lessen far greater than oura, and proportional to the rnaaiKa he brooitht up. The eolonel of the trench, Janla, of the 1*< regiment of Zouaves, directed the ef fort* made at tMa spot. and fnuorlit personally with rara eotrgy. Me wuh covered with blood from two wound* which he received in the head, but which fortunately are not serious. The effort* of the enemy, who could only pulldown the at'll empty gabion* at thia spot, b^lng without ef fect, were next d tract* J against th* laft of our parallel, toward* the ravine of Karabe'nia, where he was warmly received by a lire of musketry, ar> 1 wuh unable to pene trate. H? ihen audrenly threw himself upon tho right of the Knjluh parallel, contrived to croan tho wont*, and fouud himself in th* rear of our loft, which for an inatant wan exposed to a murderous Ore in reverse. General Automarre, who cutmnaaiied in the trench, made the neco'sary dispositions with hia accustomed vigor and composure. The 4th baltViia of infantry ebasreur*, coming up to assist. waa seut into the riviue, where it threw it*elf valiantly upon the enemy, who, being himself exposed, auReied considerable loan, and wan repulsed to return no mrre. Further to the left, tbe Ecigl^h, who had not b sen aMe to collect more fories, then left them much .inferior in unmber to tbe asaallauts. attacked the enemy with their wonted oourage, and after a warm Htruirele. com pelled him to retreat. Still further to tbe l?ft the Eng lish had been attacked hy a sortie, having the app-ar ance of a divertion, and which they very noon reckoned with This operat on of tho beg'eged baa differed completely from alt those which he has htiberto attempted against cur work* In order to insure it* success, and notwith standing the strength of the garrison, coaaiderable as tbat is, be btonght up from without two regiments (tight battalions) of frrah troopa (tho-c of Dnieper and Cughti'h). 14u'aa a species of general arfaault against our lines of communication, and tbe combination ap peared uncomnonlr well devised for obtaining a griat resnlt. Tue importance of thia failure on the pirt of the besieged ought to be estimated by the fteatness of the object he had !n v ew. Tbe prison ers we bave made state that his lo^g has bten enormous; and, taking into aceount the roaasea he em plowed, we think that thia combat, irregular aa all nos tnrunl combats are, and tbe firing at which lasted a?ve ral hours, must have coat him at least from 1 000 to 1,200 men. The Nground in front of our parallels is strewed with the dead, and Gen. Osten-Sacken baa just demanded of ua an armistice, which haa been granted and fixed for to-morrow, in order tbat the Uat honors may be paid to tbe fallen. Onr own loan, of which Gen. Bosquet bat only been able aa yet to send me an approximate eatimate, s very sensible, and cannot be lesa than 300 or 320 killed and wounded. We have especially to regret the death of tbe Chef deBatail'on of Engineers, Duma*, a superior officer of great merit and promise, who fell gloriously. He was Killed by bayonet "tabs, after being already woanded at the head ot the wotks of attack. You. Marshal, knew and eateemed bim; your regret will equal our own. The same fate has befall- p the Chef do Bataillon Banon, of the 31 Regiment of Zouaves, who baa disappeared, and who, it la supposed, waa killed. I Kball forward to you later a report in full of our loss. I have no'.liing to add to what I have said in my pre vious despatches respecting the sanitary state of tiie troops. It is satisfactory. I um informed that nwny families, swayed by precon ceived ideas perfectly legitimate in themselves, are astonished tbat no exchange of prisoners haa yet taken piece in the Crimea, and that they address to you on this subject cnmplatpts and urgent entreaties. That may be presumed ut least from the great number of private let ters that, have been received h*re On this point I can hnt reply, tbat. in concert with 1/ord Raglan, I wrot) aaontit to the Commander in-Chief of the Kuaclau army, in the month of Jauuary last. Prince Mens AiUolT an swered shortly after tt at he waa going to ref<>.r it to hia government, and that its decUion should be subsequently made known to ?*. Thus the matter rests for the pre sent, and 1 do cot think It becomes ua to hr?ak a silence tbat they seem diapesed to maintain.

On the morning of the 22d the French troop* fn the advanced parel'el moved forward, and drove tbe ernmy out of tha rflo-pits in tli?ir immediate front, but nothing of any importance occurred during the clay Early fn the night, however, a serious attack wasm ide upon the work* of our allies In front of the Victoria redoubt, opposite the Valakbof tower. Th* nifrht wn v#rr ac<1 *h? no hl^h tli&C the firing which too'* place, nod which was verv heavy, could scarce? y be beard in the Hrirish camp; it is there fore, difflenlt io speak with certainty of what occurred from ary thing i bat could be heird or observed at the mom* nt. It appears, however, that the Russians, after attack ing th<? bead of the #hp which the French are carrying oa towards the Mauvlon, fell with two heavy masses oil their new parallel, to the rear of which they succeeded in penetrating and momentarily poaeess'ng themselves of after a gallant resistance on the part of our allies. Having broken through, they pa^ed along the paral lel and in rear of it, until they came in contact with the troops stationed in our advanced parallel extending into the ravine, from the right of our advance, where it con nects with the French trench The enemy was here met by detachuents of the 77th and 97th regiments, 'orto'ng p<irt of the gmird of the trenches, who, al'bough thus taken suidenly both in flank and rear, behaved with the utmost gallantry and coolness. The detachment, of tbe 07th, which was on the er trtrue right, and which, consenntsntly, flret came in con tact with the enemy, repulsed the attt;k at the point of the bayonet. they were led by Captva Vicars, who, unfortnnataly, lost hi* life on the occasion; and I am assured that no thing could l>e wore dist nguished thin the gallantry and good example whiuh he e?t to the detachment uu der his command. The conduct of the detachment of the 77th was equal ly dlttincuishel; ami the firmness and promptitude with which the attack, in thi* part of our work*, was nv t. were in the highest degree creditable to that regi D?st, These troopi were under the direction of Major Cor don, of the Koval Fnglneers. who was wounded on the occasion so severely. as for some time.

At any tim? the sight of so m*uy huge machines, sent out with tbe message to Kill and destroy, m vy well sub due tbe most frivolous Even a n*vnl review, with its mimic thunders end its programme of trlnmphs, be comes a scene of horror exactly in proportion as we realiz" Its true inport. Wbat we may see to day, how ever, is ambitiously and industriously grander, sterner, gTimmer more real, and more deadly, than any like spectacle on these or any soas. The Baltic flt-et of thin year is in all r>-?|?ect.s much stronger than the last; it btl more steam power, mere gone, a new cl??H of gunboats and floating bat teries, ac'apted for credit* and shoals, and, whit more tbsn snytning markp a resolution to do something ? a new com'mstider Sir Charles Napier has ceased to com trsnd tbe Balt e fleet, not from any deficiency in skill, in conrsge or temper, but simply because he did less than tbe Pritish people expected to see done. We have ourselves been ever ready to do justice to his actual achievements, wbich are not to be denied or depreciated; but, wben we send out the flr.est fleet in tbe world, we nntorsl'y expect 't to do more than shnt In a third. rate nival Powet, and a saint an armv I o destroy an unfinish ed fort. Tbe new commander, Admiral Dundas, has be fore blm the services of Admiral Napier, and, whatever bis instrnctlons, If any. no doubt he knows that be has to do more tbau Admiral Napier. If he do?s not accom plish trore, be will certa<r.'y find himself next Novem ber under orders to lower his flag, with small prospsst of ever hoisting It again. Such is tbe mission of the fleet the Queen sends this day on iti fatal errand. It Is to attempt more, to run more risk, to follow fur ther and closer, to care rather less for losing ships and men, and rather more lor inflicting losses and disgraces on the enemy. In a word, the force is stronger and the doty more terrible tbsn last year; and if the scene to day should attract a smaller crowd of gazers than last year, they will doubtless see it less ns a holiday specta cle, and more as an operation of war. * * * * * For anything we know, the departure of the Baltic fleet mBy be an annual ceremony for many a year to come Up to tbis time everything Indinves a very pro tracted war. At the chief point of collis'on there Is on both sides an indefinite power of reinforcement! and supplies, end we go on pour ng in meu and material ior ever without derisive issue. But if our arm? is thwarted by earthworks, our navy is not less at fault with granite, and. whether by sea or by land, the same cndlfks warfare is before ns, till genius or accident shall suggest some solution. Therefore it is that we htm urge the necessity of adapting our m?*ns of warfsre to tbe nature of tbe war. Great men have al wavs been rsmarkahle for adapting the means ta tlin end. To do so politically argues a singleness and stralghtness of aim, a dicrsirard of minor objects, and a contempt of irtre material, never found In the common order of minds, however accomplished. No doubt it dots cost a pairful effort to condemn a majestls struc ture to vulgar uses, to break to planes the work of one's own industry and skill, to acknowledge a life half wasted, and" a thousand opportunities thrown away: hut If experience should establish that our mtfniScent ships are little better than useless lumber, or, at beat, hnse store sblps. floating barracks and naval depots, we hope and trust tbat no fslse thrift or professional pride will interfere to tave tbem fro m their proper fate. I<et them he kept in their pKce. t??4 nul multiply tt>?m, or ?rtrmpt to use them, simoly because we b*ve them, where tbey do not answer the purpose. fFroji tbe I.on^cn Time* April 7.] Ibe Baltic fleet, the most, powerful and imposing tbat ever left, tbe whores of even naval England, sailed from Spit bead yesterday (Aprl 4) in profo >nd silence, con trasting stropgly with tbe ssilieg of tbe floet last spring, wben all was gav and promising, and anxious thousands crowded tbe waters of the Anient frrm all parts of th? kirigdcm to give their laet ailieux and breathe tlie'r good wii-hes for auccf ss. rbe day was lowering and gloomy; only two gay vatchs bravid the uncomfortab'e weather, and lor shut ont from the shores the mngni9c*nt spec tacle of 13 hne of battle ships leaving thsir anchorage under canvass. There was uo good Queen there to w?sh " fuccess," nor were tin waters spotted over with boat loads ef well wishers but every man in the fleet left with a glowing hope of re-u ning in the antumi deserv itg of being welcomed wl?h joy and acclamation, and terming snot her contra?t. no' list year. The fleet got under way at 2 o'clock end proceeded, witbnat any par ticular order, shout six miles to Mi. when it fell a diiad calm, and signal was made to get up steitm. By 4 o'clock the foe bad cle?r*d away anl thes'jsn ?h<?ne with out a cloud in tb< b'ue sky to screen his brightness Tlis ships shortnened all sail and proceeded to the en -t war 1 in two long line* The starhnsrd division was fortae-l by tbe l>nke ef Wellington (hoarlng the flag of Admiral I'lindas, Coirmandtr-in 1 bief) leading, and followed In rotation by Roynl George, the Oejsar, the Colossus, the Blenheim, and the Rllnburg.

It is htrange that on both sides of qi? oontiaentil Europe 1 clone io our nhores, and far awa / in the West? men should, by a aimilar process, have arrived at the aaine conclusions, although fiom premises ao ditfereul. In tl-e United btatea taey have not been governed by an oligarchy I'emocracy, in its pureit and most un fettered form, haa swayed the deutinies or that immenke ami atill undeveloped country. Yet the people are juetly dissatisfied with the order of things and a gre?t nat onal party haa been Mleutly formed! which already threat* us to ovdriihariow all others ia the community. It ia remarkable with what precision the cesciiption given, in the manifesto or the Kno t No thinga, or the eon.lit'on of parties in the United States at tbe pre ent moment, applies to the cane or the United Kingdom Word Icr word, thi catalogue of shortcoming* serves to oensure those of our own whig aad tory, rati cal, politico economic, or Iridh Catholic parties. "All men acknowledge" saj those clear-sighted Americans. 1 that the old and f? miliar parties are scarcely any long er cognizable by the original testa of distinct; ve opinion. In tbe fading away of these it ia equally apparent that they have lapsed into a condition which has lost them ttucli ct the confidence of tbe people. They lie open to tbe reproach of aabhtitutiug for honest differences of judgment upon questions of onblic concern, others of trivial import or even of mischievous extra vagance. Many exciting subject* wblsh, in the earlier stages of our progress legitimately divided publi, opinion, have manifestly lost their significant in the estiBiate of the present day; and the country haa seen, with 1 regret, that as tbene have sunk oat of view, new jmd less worthy topios of dissensionjhave been thrust in their place? -topics to be noted chiefly by the low pas sions to which they appeal, and by the base motives they propose to a continual strife. Tbey seem to have grown out of no better mot ve than a desire to ke?p up dlv.elon for the pr6fit of those who may thrive bv it, in a carrer which looks to no object of honorable ambition and scarcely affect* to refer to the pub'ic goo I Party action bar thus. in a great degree, lost all dignity above tbat of a mere struggle for the power or diapenB'nir na trc 1, age and ban (tone what it could to inculcate in the mibd ot the people an opinion that government is but a complicated system of rewards for offl:e seekers, in wbcro tbe faculty fer faithful service la the last aad least of tbe qualificaticns tbey are expected to present.

Tais party has already obtained a decisive atctiiitne? in tie Northern States of tho Union, and it if extremely probable that it wtU name tho auceeaaor of I'res;d? nt TUreo at the next Providential election. But the principle on whcb the party is formed la of far greater Importance than any personal conaequenoea it may pioducs, for thla principle may lead to permanent results in the policy of the Union.

The object of Ita founder* hug boon to preserve their de sign from the assaults of other parties until they could rely on tbeir own strength ; and for this purpose they Blate, curiously enough, that "their organization is more or lees secret in action, and elmust alto gether aeriet in the source from which it do rves its counsel and design." Yet, in spite of this mystery, which would ?eem so little adapted to the political habits of the United Stales, the party has unquestionably gained ground with singular rapidity. It must therefore represent an opinion shared by large masses of the American people. Its main object is <ie clarvd to be to reassert the original pur potto of the I'a'on, to revUe the national spirit of the country, to cmsh these factions which hare converted party war fsre into a m?re straggle for the power of dispensing Btroisge, aid, above all. to resist the increase of reign InflutD' e? in ibe United States. Tbie la* t motive is more especially the peculiar ?nd immediate object of tho Know Nothing party. They state that not much .ess than half a million strangers ere drivi n annually by poverty or misrule to swell the population of the lotted States; and that, although this acquisition of labor is in some respects useful to the community, yet that these immigrants ars ignorant of the imitations, the lawn, and even tho language of the country, snd animated by a spirit very different, from that of American cit zens The-o persons are, however, very speedily invested with tho franchise and the exer c?e of political power This immigration Fnrnlshcs what may, without much exaggeration of phrase, be called the d'Stluct ebtitein nnr republic. it* ever dwell ing tide is vieil.lt in every community. it 1* banded into ci mi lnaiioDB more or lu>s apart from oo<- Ions known ami familiar nissi-es of native oltUens, by ties of foreign kin dred, bv unforgotteu and ever ohennhed nationalities, ami by s> r.i path lee alien to the spirit which nlone sustains our peenl ar, temperate and oompli<ia(ed system of freedom.

To this we may add that it exercises an undue and almost exclusive influence over the Atneriotn press: that it is always endeavoring to embroil the United States, lor its own sinister p'irposea, with the European Powers; aud that it is led by the renegades, the sympathisers aid tbe annexationist!! ot every clime, who nave sought a refuge beyond tbe Atlantic. Bot the views ot the American party do not stop here. They observe that a very large portion of this annual immigration belongs to the Cburch of Rome? a body re garded with distrust by tte greater number of tbe Amer ican people, professing at least a moral allegiance to a foreign and absolute i'ower, and organized in a peculiar manner for the promotion of Roman Catholic objeota, at the expense of those very liberties which thess persons exercise and enjoy. The American party, therefore, proclaims that it takes ita stand against tbe politioal ac tion of the (toman Catholic Cburch in tbe United States, sot from intolerance 01 the doctrines of that faith, hut from a conviction tbat the tendency of that oharch la to embody its adherents in a party, tho objects of whioh are at variance with the institutions and national spirit of the American people. 'these declarations are to a great extent new lathe history of the linlted States. Hitherto, unlimited fa cilities and encouragement have been lisld oat to imrai {ration, and the political parties in the oommunity ave professed absolute indifference to the religious faith ot their members. Experience seems to have con vinced at least one considerable section of the American community that these privilege* cannot always he aa li btrwlly conceded as thev have hitherto been; and it is obvious that the principles of this new party are mtin ly directed against tbe extraordinary increase of the Irsb element ^mong the American population, both as aliens and as Pap sts. On many other topic* the mani festo preserves a discreet and signi ficaat silence, proba bly because, although the Know Nothings ar<t cordially united on some points, that union does not extend to ail. Thus, the vital question of slavery Is left unno ticed, because in Massachusetts, for instauce, the Kohw Not hings have declared for emancipation, while in other States they support the Fugitive Slave law. Again, the annexstion of Cuba and other territories is not alluded to probably because every extension of territory inhabi ted by men of the ^psnish raee and the Roman Gatho'.ic faith mast tend to weaken the natioml American cha racter of tbe Union. It these sre the established principles of the Know Nothing party, we cannot but regard them with con siderable sympathy. We have ever watched with sin oeio admiration the progrers of the United States, aa long a* U is directed to those legitimate objeota which are to be found within the magniflnent territories of the Uuien. A less favorable opinion of their policy and con dtton las only been trrmed anl expressed in Europe when public opinion in ths United States was misled by factions agitators or misdirected to objects laoompatible with tbe rights of othei s. The strength of the Union snd tie peace bf the world would be protected and se cured b j a puixjr wmca protesses to concentrate the streigth of the American psofle on American objects. Ibe language of tbe new party apoearg to us to be pa triotic and wise and far mare nearly akin to the true principles of the founders of the commonwealth, than the scandalous attempts of the moaern democrats to coart populsriry at tbe expense of honesty and honor. Ihe Know Nothings owe their existence to a reaction sgainst the follies and excesses of Kossuth meetings, of Irish journalism* af the Romish priests, acd of Mr. Tierce's mini* Urn; and it is not improbable that they will sncceed in constituting the next government of tbe Uni ted States, aa they have already returned a majority te the new Congiess.

[From tbe London News, April fl ] Ihe ccnvic>kn of Joha Or r, the street preacher, i known in hcotiand and America at* the "Angel tin rial,") of a breach of tbe peace, and the inflation of a a-nten.e cf sixty days' imprisonment, at the police court in Greenock, on Monday, eaused a great excite ment is tbe town, kindling afresh tbe old spirit which led to ramp serious riots upwards of three years ago. lbe Acrlh British Dnily Mail nays ft is said that the mob which assembled in Cktbcart square on Mon day sight roctempWUd the breaking open of the jail, and releasing John Orr, wb? hid in the forenoon been icnienced at tbe police court to sixty days' Imprison ment, for creating a breach of tbe peaee on the pre vious (Sunday) evening, in attempting to hold forth to a erowd at tbe steamboat quay, in direct opposition to a caution by th authorities, who bad been induced thus to act from former experience. It was ascertained, however, that Orr had been re moved to Paisley goal in course of the afternoon, and tbe mob proceeded in maas to the Kotnan Catholic Cha>el ia Bearliope itreet, wh?re they broke fifty five panes of glass with missiles. Taming the corner Into East -<haw street, they battered In the pannels of the chapel door. Ttiey broke in the doors and some of the glass In the windows of the school and the teacher's house. They also smssbed tbe windows and tbe door of the contig uous residence of the elerry man. Tiers was nothlnc to oppose the r lawless course except the ordinary police | force, who d!1 all In their power to check tbe rioters. Tb? y autre htnded several yonng man, whe are now In ensiody. Oforge Fowler, ons of the offloers, waa Sadly Injured wl b a stene, and two other officers were hurt. It waa rnly when nipht closed In, and things assumed a serioua arpect, that it waa deemed advisable to call in the aid of rema men from her Msjesty's ship Atbol, and from the revenue cutter Prince Albert In tre West Harbor, and to bring down tbe Lancashire militia by special trata , from Glsppow. Ibemil't'S arrived in town between 1 and 3 o'elosk I this morning, bnt by this time the misehief ?as done, and tbe uk b bad dispersed. Tbe soldiers, about 140 in num ! ber, were bivouacked all night in the Town Hall, wtiere they still remain, and an adlltlenal fifty men are ex pected to join them froai Glasgow this evening. Sheriff Msafarlace arrived in town to-day. Every well disposed person must deplore the way the mob took to avenge tbe sentence passed upon their lavnrite fanatic, "The Angel Gabriel." To asa-mblu at Csthcart rquarc avowedly for the purpose of breaking i open tbe prtion and setting Orr at liberty, oonld be nndor ptcod. To a band of thoughtless yonng m?n the propo ? al bad a prestige about it. and a degree of plausibility of its kind. But the mortification experienced at hear ing that Orr was beyond their reach will not afford a shadow of pretext, either of one kind of another, for de liberately sally hog to the Roman Catholic chapel, and wantonlr demoliahitg the windows with stones, or of battering in the nrors and windows of the residence of the Rev Mr. Gordon, a gentleman who ban gained golden opinions from all sorts of men.
