The steamship Asia, from Liverpool, arrived at early yesterday mornlag. Her advioas are to toe 9th Inet., three days later taaa those re eived hythe ft. Louis at this port. The war news is tolersstinf. The bombardment of Bebsstopoi was ?eeommenced on the 6th instant, and on the Mh Lord Raglan telegraphed to London thit toe French had attacked and carried the Mamelon and the White Tower, after des perate fighting and very great loss on both ?ides. Further details of the operations in the Sea if Ancff are given, but they develope no new fe iture of positive importance. Admiral Dundas has re ?oanoitered Cronitadt, and found it more strongly fortified than last year. The condnot of the Aus trian military authorities in the Principalities is mealing considerable attention and may lead to aesione results. It is sthied by Prussian correspon dents that Austria considers hertelf released from eil engagements to the Western Povers, the latter having refused to conclude a peace on reasonable terms. There are all eorts of absurd rumors respect tog the prospective diplomatic movements ot the Gamin Powers. From Bpainvre learn that the Carlist insurrection was quelled ; but the fact that Catalonia has been de toi^i a state of Biege, and also that troops were ntfll leaving Madrid, indicates the contrary. Taere had been another reconstruction of the ministry, and a forced loan of 200,000,000 reals had been im posed. The revolt in Cracow had not b.en entirely sup pressed. The popular feeling was mainly directed against the priests. The war news had caused a rise in consols, whieh closed at 92. Cotton was steady, at pre vious quotations; corn showed an advance; other bmdstnfb without change; provisions firm. We publish elsewhere a brief account of the pro ceedings of an anti Maine law meeting in Albany, to which attention is directed. There was a fair after dasoe of delegates from various parts of the Btate. Resolutions appointing a State Central Committee, directed to make a thorough canvass of the Btate, with power to call a convention, if cir cumstances ahou.d justify such a course, were adopted. The proposals for the new Slate loan of one m>' Hon and a half of dollar?, for the canal enlarge ment, were opened at Albany yesterday. The ag. gngate bids reached $10,912,000, at a premium ranging from 112 t> 117.5.9 John Tnompaon, of New York, bid for the entire loan, 117.26. Ruras H. King, of Albany, Wd for $100,000, 117.28, and $100,000,117.56. Jar. T. Scuter, of See Yorlr, bid tor $200,000,117.27. Camman & Co., of Ne ir York, $60,000,117 59- The bidders were very numerous. The loan was awarded to the parties above named? $1,050,000 going to Mr. Thompson. The Know Nothing demonstration at Baltimore last evening was an immensely successful affair. Resolutions fully endorsing the Philadelphia plat form were adopted. Tte Copenhagen correspondent of the Paris Prtsse states that fresh demands have been pre sented by the Western Powers?" demands which may change completely the tace of affairs. Amongst athtit matters, the suppression of the Sound does is talked of." He adds, that in threatening to ra> port the reclamations of the Unite! States aid Prussia against an impost affecting the o rmmerce ?fan nations, and which constitutes one of the most important brunches of the Danish revenue, the Western Powers are iikely to influence tbs resolu tions of the oabiaet of Copenhagen on that subset. After the news by the St. Lonis was kaown ia the forenoon, yesterday, about 2,000 bales of citton were sold, at fall prices. Sub??qn3nt to the receipt cf the Asia's advices, the market was unsettled, and no traaaasttons were reported. Floor exhibited a better feeling, without any change of moment ia prices. Canadian white wheat arid at $2 25, and a tot of inferior Western red at a low figure. Corn wae about one cent per bushel higher for Western mixed, with sales ot 60,000 bnshels; Southern white ?old at $1 20. Pork was higher, with free sales. There was more activity and firmness in the sugar market, and the sales reached about 2,.">00 hbds. and 500 boxee. To Liverpool about 30,000 bushels cam were engaged, in bags and in bulk, at 5d.a 6id., and 400 bales cotton at 3-lGd., and a small lot ?f 100 bales, to fill up, at 5 32d.

No par ticulars of the captor* are given, but there can be little doubt ae to the truthfulness of the report, our prurient accounts from that region having state! that the savages were assembled around the fort in great lumbers, determined upon making a hostile demonstration. The fate of the garrison at the fort may be easily conjectured. They have undoubtedly perished miserably: snd the sianty reinforcement despatched some time since to their relief, but which could not have reached the fort before its cap ture, baa in all probability shared the same fate, as toe boatile Indiana nnmbccd two thousand war. rtors. The Indians bad likewise committed dre lations upon emigrant trains, one of which was robbed of ever four hundred head of cattle, sixteen horses, wagons, Ac , and the parties owning tbem f eft destltnti in the wilderoeee. It Is evident that a oomblsed movement of the savaje tribes Is cn foot to acalh'Jate the whites on the frontier; and if the general g .virnment does not act promptly, It will in all probability succeed. Tie new Naval Examining Board coscmsnctd at Washington yesterday, bat owing to the absence cf Com. Bacoanan no business was trausacled. The qneetion as to the propriety of keeping Its proceed lrga secret bad not bsan decided. Very strennons opposition is being made by the property owners in Greenwich and Washington streets,?against the construction of the Ninth Ave nue Railroad. An epitope of the proceedings be fore Judge Co wits will be found in the law reports. Considerable interest in the result seems to be mani fested by those doing business around Washington Market, and we are intcrmed that the case is pres ented by a voluntary subscription of ihe whole cf that crowded neighooihocd. Tbe Chicago Couiitr of the 16th lost., comes oat with a long article recommending Fernando Wood, chief magistrate of this city, for the JPresi lency in 1866. Judge Hall, at the opening of the United 9tates Circuit Court at Cansndcigua, on the 19;h inst,in bis remarks to tbe Grand Inquest, alluded to the practice of opening letters while in the coBtody of the Pott Office Department, and charged that no man, whether in the employ of the Post Office D> paitment or not, was authorized, except In the case of dead letters, for any reason or aider any pretence, to open a letter satrus'ed to the mail, or even to detain such letter; and his pernor charged tbe inquest to present any cases to the contrary which should come to their knowledge. Judge Hall, it vtill be recollected, was at the head of the Post Office Department during tbe administration of President Fillmore, which seems to give bis charge a peculiar fitness. ? Tlie War H?m, Accordingto the newspapers and telegraphic accounts we receive from the other side of the water, it wonld appear that the tide of fortune has changed and that success after success iB attending the arms of the Allies. By late mails we bad accounts of the capture of Kertch and Yenikale, of the entrance into to Sea of Azoff, and as a matter of course of the capture or des truction of every floating thing thereon; the St Louis brought advices of the capture of Genitchi, the northernmost point of the road across the Sirwash shallows and the mouth by which the Putrid Sea and the Sea of Azoff communicate?a place, as can be seen by a glance at the map, of great military impor tance both as a granary for the produce of the banks of the Don, and as the key in some sort to Perekop; and the Asia announces that the Mamelon and White Tower at Sebastopol have been taken by the Allied forces after a heavy slaughter. Blow after blow seems to fall with power and rapidity. Pelissier is showing his mettle, and is an obvious improvement on Can robert. Lord Raglan, to whom the Kertch expedition is attributed, dP gaining vigor, and the armies and nations generally are in better | temper. Even in England the cry for reform has grown dull. It remains to be seen whether this is one of the usual fluctuations of war, natural after so long a period of discouragement on the part of the Allies, or the beginning of a series of solid and enduring triumphs. The object of the Allies being, as they say, not to rob Russia of territory, but to weaken her naval power in the Black Sea, that object is of course neared by the occupation of the Sea of I Azoff. It does not seem likely, not withstand- | ing all the brilliant accounts given in the Brit ish paptrB, that either Kertch or Yenikale were storehouses used to any great extent by the army of Sebastopol. The state of the roads be', tween Ar&bat, Kaffa and Sebastopol?as de scribtd by Demidoff who rode over them a few yearB ago?forbids tbe belief that any conside rable quantity of provisions could have come by that route. But it Is quite possible, as the Ecglish say, that the reeources of the valley of the Don have been laid under contribution as well as those of the valley of the Doieper, and that large supplies have Eailed through the Sea of Azoff to Genitchi, or even found their way to rerekop. This would acoount for the seizure of the 0,000,000 rations, obviously at the for mer place. The object of the Allies is to lock the Russians in the Crimea. The only door now left open is rerekop. Perekop was to have bi en attacked and seized in a few days. Whether it can be held or not in the months of June and July appears doubtful. The Rus Mans used to shrink, in their old wars, from leaving soldiers in the " vale of death," where a single night's dew o.ten swept off whole regi ments ; Pelissier, who thought nothing of roast ing Aians, may not bo so squeamish. On the whole, there is decided and solid pr gross on the part of the Allies. It is not probable that any General ever undertook so magnificent a military tisk ae the one which Pelissier and Raglan are now attempting to perform. Their aim is to cut off from Russia, like a wart, tbe Crimean peuin 6ula, with all its forts and Its granaries and its cspifalp. Only about a thousand years ago that peninsula nourished a people who could call 200,GOO fightlDg men into battle?who set up an Emperor in Byzantium in play, and kept tho Czar of Russia in a sort of semi-servitude, he paying a tribute to the Khan of the Crimea! Now a couple of hundred thousand, or perhaps a quarter 01 a mi lion English, French and Italians seek to overrun it, and wrest it out of the hands of the Czar, who has a million of men to defend it. And we are bound to admit that they arc prosecuting their task and ad vancing step by step, with a regularity, an energy and a perseverance which we recognise at ODce as Anglo Saxon. For their sakes it weie a pity if at the most critical moment a treacherous move of AustrU, set free the corps d'arrnfc on the Gallician frontier to move down like a cloud of locusts on tbe ill defended frontier posts on the Crimea. Know Nothing One* Councils.?The decree of tho Philadelphia National Know Nothing Council, opening, to a great extent, the subor dinate Councils of the Order and their proceed ings to tho public, has already given a new im pulse to the party. Their late open srtr meet ings in Philadelphia and In this city have fairly I inaugurated this new order of the day. In | Massachusetts they are about to call an open State Convention. In other States they will, doubtless, do tbe same thing. Let not the Or der in New York fall behind. They hold the vantage ground, now, over any other party in the State.

Our fnture is full of hope, which should not be sacrificed and frus trated merely to satisfy personal views or iblt callosity, or a blind impatisnt anxiety. Cnba and her indepen dence before all. P. V ALIEN TE, Secretary ef the Cuban Junta. Here it will be perceived that while the Se cretary pleads that in our historical sketch of the late Cuban conspiracy and the causes of its explosion, we did not give the exact facts in the matter, he refrains himself from disclosiog them from considerations of prudence for "the cauee." We are thus admonished that "the cauee" is not yet abandoned, but that the time is near at hand when all the facts concerning all these conspiracies for the liberation of Cuba may be safely published to the world. From the general tone of this letter, in fact, it would appear that the Junta is still in a hopeful and flourishing condition, and very industriously employed in concocting another scheme for a Cuban revolution in conjunction with a fili bustering invasion from our shores. M Will be recollected that the Cabinet at Washington, upon certain intimations received of the ripeness of the late conspiracy, sent out a secret diplomatic agent last summer to Ha vana, with instructions to worm himself into the confidence of the leading conspirators in the island, and to worm their secrets out of them in the treacherous disguise of friend* ship, and that having thus accomplished his work, he was to return and report pro gress to Messrs. Pierce and Marcy. It is known that this spy did his work very suc cessfully, and that upon his information Marcy exposed the whole plot to the Spanish Minister at Washington. Hence the barbarous execution of Pinto, Estrampes and others, and the im prisonments, banishments, confiscations and terrorism with which the poor Creoles of Cuba were visited by General Concha. Our treache rous administration is responsible for them all. Its blocdy duplicity in this business, black as it may appear, caDnot be denied. Copies of the coirespondecce which passed between Marcy's ?py and Manuel Pinto and others, are, we un derstand, in possession of ihe Junta of this city; and we are luithfr informed that at the pr Jper lime they will be published. They will form an nteresting supplement to Mr. Sou16'b book on his mission to Spain. All iren will agree that it is the duty of the administration to see that the laws, including our neutrality luws, are faithfully executed; hut we suspect that this duty does not compre hend the policy of sending a spy to a foreign country to betray the patriots there to the despotism against which they are conspiring. In the eyes of the Spanish government Pinto, Estrampes and their associates were traitors; but who shall say that their motives ai d objects were not as pure and patriotic as were those of the self-sacrificing patriots of our Revolutionary war; for they, too, were denounced as rebels and traitors ? At all evenis, the administration has gone beyond its jurisdiction in sending out a spy upon tbe patriots of Cuba, to do the dirty work of an in toimer against them, at the expense of the United S'ates treasury. In thus going into the Spanish service in Spanish territory, our Cabi net should at least have drawn the costs from tbe Spanish Minister. We trust that among the firii acts of the next Congress will be one appointing a committee of investigation into this bloody Inuiners, with power to send for persons and papers. Govebkor Reiser and His Halk-Breed Kashas Lass Speculations.?Oar readers will remember that we hare repeatedly charged that the land specalations of Governor Reeder have had a great deal to do with the late squatter trouble* in the Territory of Kansas, and that all the tine he has been held np by the Wash ington Union as a perfect model of democratic parity and excellence. Bat the truth is official ly crming out at last. " A very pretty quarrel as it stands," between the Com missioner of Indian Affairs, Mr. Manypenny, and Governor Reeder, is bringing it all oat. Manypenny arraigns Reeder as soiling his offi cial robes with his dirty speculations in the rich lands of the simple half-breeds of Kansas, who ore under the especial care of Manyponny. Indeed, this guardian of the said half-breeds pretty broadly insinuates that the Governor has been taking advantage of their simplicity to cheat them out of their property. The Go vernor confesses that in certain joint stock ope rations with some other federal officers of Kan sas, including the two Judges, (Heaven pre serve as!) he did buy up several large tracts of land from the said half breeds; but he argues that they are intelligent half-breeds, can speak French and English, and can't be cheated as easily as the Commissioner might suppose. The upshot of the whole matter Is that the Governor, Judges and Attorney are required to make out their defence and lay it before the government, their retention in or dismissal from office depending upon the restrft. The Governor has accordingly gone out to Kansas to hunt up his evidence, and very likely to sell out, bis lands for what they will fetch, or to hoy more. We must await the denouement. Such are the Kansas spoilsmen of this glorious administration. Sent out to execute the laws, and to see justice administered, thoy turn to speculating upon the property of the poor half brccd Indians, to the monopolizing of ail the nice localities they can lay their hands on, and to such a scurvy free sail policy In general as to bring the arm< d Missourians into the Terri tory at the hazard of a civil war. We shall see how Mr. Rocder ana Mr. Pierce will shuffle out of tho difficulty. Mator Wood and the Liquor Law.?The Major, it se-mp, has determined to take it on his owe reFpoosibili y sot to execute the Pro hibitory Liquor law oa the Fourth of July. Whatever evil purpose or mischance induced the Legislature to select that day to inaugurate the new Blue Law, it i9 quite cieu that nothing could be more shocking to the feelings of Am> ricuis'hcn the di&turban;e of the celebration o! the national anniversary by riots oa that day. AcJ that any rash attempts to enforce tie Liquor law on the Fourth would le *d to riots, and bloody ones, the most perverse sup porter of the law will hardly venture to deoy. Hence the Mayor viewing the omission of a day as of little consequence and reviewing the means at ids power to carry out the law at a time when countless thousands will be in the streets, quite ready for a row, has come *o the conclusion that under any circumstances the better course foi him to pursue will be to let the law lie over till the fifth. But it is said that Governor Myron Clark of Conandaigua will not have it so. It is loudly rumored that, if the Mayor will not execute the law, be, Governor Clark, is reidy to take his place at the head of the militia of the State and see it done. We were well aware that the Prohibitory law was a favorite of Mr. Clark's ; that he drew it; was elected on the strength of it; has done little since he took office but get it passed ; and now it appears he wanta to exe cute it in person at the head of a regiment with leaded muskets and fixed bayonetB. Tnis may be going too far. The constitution of the State does certainly declare that the Governor shallexpedite all such measures as may be resolved upon by the Legislature, and shall take care that the laws are faithfully executed." But the Mayor also is directed by law to " be vigilant and active in causing the laws and ordinances of the go vernment of the city to be duly executed and enforced;" and this clause obviously includes

legislative acts as well as municipal ordinances. When two men appear, according to the words of a law, to be set to perform the same duty, it iB generally understood that he on wh(>3e shoulders the performance of the law would most naturally fall?who is nearest the spot ?ie most familiar with the nature of the busi ness? and would travel least out of the way to perform the required duty?is the man who is meant. Under this rule of interpretation, the execution of the Liquor law in the city b.-ing clearly " a law for its government" devolves upon the Mayor. Acoording to the common law, the Mayor is paramount in his mayoralty. The political power, say all the old writers, is subservient to the municipal authority in the municipality. And most assuredly, according to the rules of common sense, it devolves rather upon the bead of the city than the State go vernment to carry out a law, which at best is only a mere measure of police. We can quite understand therefore that Mayor Wood should have written to the Go vernor, remonstrating with him against his al leged intention. It is not possible, however, to foresee the result of his message. It may bo that Mr. Clark is one of those men like Neal Dow, who think everything should be sacrificed to his pet theory. He may come here with a thousand men or so to back him to stop the tale of liquor on the Fourth. We cannot un dertake to say what legal measures the muni cipal authorities might take to prevent so un necessary and unwarrantable a piece of med dling. nor whether with common seme to back thtm, they would be certain to defeat the Go vernor. But one thing is quite certain. If Myron Clark comes here in search of a riot, and has it in bis heart to play the Neal Dow, he may rest quite satisfied that he will attain his purpose by trying to enforce the Liquor law on the Fourth. The only difference between the two cases will be that where Dow had sol diers Clark will need regiments; where Dow fired a shot, Clark will need a volley; and for ore man wounded in Portland there will be a score killed here. Mayor Wood has not, since the message which appeared some weeks back, made any puhr lie avowal of his intentions. But we have the best ground for believing that with reference to the ulterior bearings of the Liquor law, he in tends to guide himself by the advice of the legal counsellors to whom the law directBhim to refer in case of difficulty, and that he will not in any case direct the police to interfere with import ed liquors. According to the best light which be can procure, the Prohibitory law does not apply to such. It prohibits the sale of intoxi cating liquors, in general, but excepts those which are foreign grown and imported from abroad. This may not have been the intention of the framers at the law, but it is, aocording to the best advice and the judgment of the Mayor, the actual effect of the law as they passed it, and at the Mayor, of course, and all executive offloexs are bound to carry it out Those therefore who apprehend that after the Fornth of July it will be impossible to prooure liquor, will be agreeably disappointed. Of French brandies, clarets, burgundies, sherry, Madeira, Port wine, champagne, Scotch whis key, Jamaica nun, and British ales, there is no reason in life why the sale should be diminish ed so much as a glassful. The only effect of the Prohibitory law may be to destroy th<? growing wine and brandy interest of Ohio, and to put a check on the manufacture of native whiskey and rum. But it would not make much difference to this city if ail the Catawba and all the Monongahela now drunk were kppt at home. The growers might leel it, the consu mers would not. Tm> Thxatmb ?

Whereas, The American Ceaveniion aeeembled at Phi ladelphia baring laid down pr:n*iplee for the guiilan :e of the American party so purely national, Anierictn and patriotic in tone; so congenial with the spirit of those republican institutions under which we bare oeen nur tured, and the perpetuity of which we heliera to be essential to the pr?serration of thoee cherished bless ing* and liberties for which cur torefithsm battle land bled, so peculiarly adapted to the exigences of the timee, designed ss they are to thwart the intrigues ?nd machinations of foreigners, and exorcise that demon of sectionalism which has threatened the rery integrity of cur hallowed Helen, therefore, be it Resolved. That tbe prfnc'ples and sentiments enun ciated by the American Conrention be, an i they are hereby, cordially approredof by the Americana of Balti more, and that we wifl ever endeavor to maintain them in all their purity and strength. Resolred, That the American party fully recognizee the righte of the eever.1 States, as expressed and re served In the constitution of tbe United States; that Congrese, under that constitution, possesses no power to legislate upon tbe subject of slarery, and that aiy agl tatien of that question, whether within or without Con greee, I* violative of that spirit of compromise in whish the lonndat'on of oor aorernment was laid, and should be condemned by erery true lover of his country. KesolTed, "bat the American party unqualifiedly son de ran*, and will ever endeavcr to counteract, all efforts, by "jfsect or party, to bring about a uulonjof church and crate; that it pledges Itself to protect erery man in the full and fair enjoyment of his religious rights; and that, regarding es we do the Bible as the basis of all truth and good government, wo esteem it as our highest duty ee patriots and good oitizena to oppose its exclu sion from our public schools. Resolred, Ibat as tbe naturalization laws hare been ?o long perverted to the bieeit purposes, by corrupt po litical demagogues, as to cause tbe foreign elements to grow op to be a danger->us power in our midst, deciding our political contests as it pleases, that there exists an imperative necessity for their radical mi iifi ration and stricter enforcemezt. Resolved, 1 hat''none but Americans shall rule Ame rica. " Resolved, That It is tbe sense of this meeting that the honest and industrious imm'grani who seeks an aiy'un in our lend from the tyranny of tbe Old World ehonld be welcomed to onr rbores, but that such restrict,on should be placed upon immigration as will exclude the foreign paupers and felons whom the lazar houies and penitentiaries of Europe are daily emptying into our midst. Resolred, That our wannest thanks be accorded those distinguished members of the conrention to whose ta lents, patriotism and Indefatigable labors wo are in debted for the glorious and brilliant results we this night celebrate. Tbe meeting is doubtless the largest political gather ing ever held in this quarter; there cannot be lese than twenty thousand people in the square, all wild with en thusiasm. Ibe ground presents an animated spectacle, with Its gay tanners, transparencies snd brilliant fire works. Some of the wards were preceded by a cannro, and a salute was Orel as they entered the square. Among the mettos on the banners, we noticed the fol lowing?"Union and Nothing but the Union," "Sam is in town, and will defend the firesides of the sires of '7fi ' "No foreign dictation;" "Charity begins at home " "Sam is coming," &o. ' Speeches were made by Rayner, of North Carolina. Broom, of Philadelphia, Boteler, Albert Pike and others from the various stands. Br Pike made a telling and popular speech. He ad vocated the great duty of cultivating a hearty national 2'rit. He believed, and so did the great body of the nerican people, that tboee who were citizens were better republicans and better qualified to ad minister tbe affairs of goverameit than those born in other lands. This might be sailed prejudice, but if *o it was the palladium of onr liberty. The vital es isnce of the American icntiment was found upon the monuments of the Revolution, and was nurtured by the wis* precepts and admonitions of the fathers of the re p?bHc ?It rM OD# of tho,? instincts of nationality which God had Implanted in the human heart, ia the of masses needed no Instruction. Mr. Pike next spoke of the rise of the party la Arkan 0AS, which wis first bi&rd of thsro in November lut snd now bad a majority of 10.C#0. As it was in Arkan sas, m> it was everywhere in the West. The meeting adjourned at a late hour, and dispersed In good order, every one apparently well pleased with the demonstration. The Naval Examining Board. Washington, Jane 20, 1955.

Governor Reeder Again?The Pretident Set of Defiwe? IFJkof the Correspondence Shows?WtMt will Secretary Marcy do I?An Autograph Letter f nm Gen Wi,king ton?The New Naval Board. When I wrote you that the President had c tiled a council of wer upon Gov. Render's case, and that it had been reiolved tbat he should resign, together with his associates, or bo removed, I bad every oonflden re in my source of information, and believed I could not be mittak en in the facta I stated; but when I noticed in tbe Hksald a statement that Gov. H?sd?r and hi* private secretary were in New York, en route tot Kansas, I was puzzloi at the contradiction, but still believed my information to be well founded. Tbe publication of a correspondence in tbe Union of yesterday furnishes a solution to tho difficulty, and prove* my information correct ia every particular. Secretary Maroy finding that Governor Reeder was about leaving for Kane**, served a writ of ne exeat upon bim, in tho shape of a letter, ia which he informs sin- Governor that ??the President, consistently with In* c. eviction of duty could not allow his present official relat.on to the Territory to coat nus:" yet, in total disregard of this intimation of dissa'lefac tion and distrust from the executive, Governor K., promising to attend to Mr. Marcy's note at a more con venient sear on, iota out for the Far Wast. The correipon dence not only abows that 1 was right as regards tho action of the administration towards Raodsr, bat also toward! Judges ghnore and Johnson, and Mr. District Attorney Isaaes.
