Her ad vices are ef the same date as those brought by the Asia. The letters of oar Loadon and Paris corres pondents, the intelligence from Spain, and the last speech of Lord Palmerston on the war question, which we publish, are very interesting. Our files from Brazil extend to the dth of May. Tbe hostilities between that empire and the repab Be of Paraguay had resolved themselves into diplo matic meaeuies, the republican government binding Use If to make due reparation to the empire for the tacit rendered to it by expelling, some years since, Ms Minister Plenipotentiary, Seflor Leal. The set tlement of the question as to the right of Brazil to navigate the waters of Paraguay, so as to connect It with one of its provinoes.does not, however, ap pear promising, inasmuch as President Lopez has recently issued a deoiee giving a stricter interpreter Won'to the law on the a abject than has been hither to given to it. The Imperial Legislature assembled ?n the 3d of May, and the Emperor made an open, tag speech, which wo translate. The Court goes into mournirg for two months in demonstration of its regret for the death of the Emperor Nicholas, the Queen Dowager and Queen of Sardinia, the Doke id Genoa and Don Carlos. News from Melbourne, (Australia,) to the 2lth of March, baa reached us by way or Liverpool. Po Btic&l and commercial affairs throughout ths colo ny were quite flat, except at Sydney, where trade was very active. The trials of the gold license rioters wtte progressing, with every prospect of an acquittal of the accused. Reports were in circula tion at Geekxg ef ibe discovery of new gold fifrta. Our Washington despatch states that the removal mt Mr. Wilson, Commissioner of the General Land Office, and Mr. Clayton, Second Auditor, has at list been determined on by the President. Gov. Shaa boq, of Ohio, and Judge Young, of lllinris, are named as their successors, respectively. But Sec retary McClelland, It is said, has put in a protest to ~ Hi removal of Wilson, and threatens to resign. Sees Mr. McClelUnd belong to the Know Nothing organization? Who knows? The esse of Commander Ringgold, lately brought before a Medical Board of the Navy coavened in Washington, has been virtually decided in his favor. His removal from his command in the Pacific was not therefore justified by tbe state of his health. Commander Ringgold is a gallant office, and baa tang and faithfully served his country. We suppose he will sgain be sent to the Pacific to complete the Important work commenced by him two years ago. ' It is stated that C>mm*uder Iagraham, late of the aloop-of war 3'. Louis, and celebrated as the hero of tbe Kcszia affair, will be appointed to the eommaiid of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. There waa a futile attempt made to assemble ths "friends of Kansas" last evening at the Tdbern*c.e, to listen to the continuation M the Rev. Mr. Starr's address on the subject of Kansas emigration, saw mills, log bouses, wagons, printing presses, Ac., & \ The proposed lecture had only been announced in two of the daily papers?the Ttmts and Tribune? and hence the assembUge of only thirty persons. In consequence of this insuffi jlent notice?as Mr. Joseph Blunt very properly termed i'.?the meeting was adjourned till next week, so as to enable Mr. Btarr to give the public proper notice thereof. The salescf cotton yesterday reached about 1,500 hades, with a decl.ne of 4c. per lb. Flour was with out ohange of moment. Prime wnite Michigan wheat was sold in a email way at 12 50. Indiiu corn was without change, and closed with a good demand. Rje was dull and tended downward, while Chicago oats were firmer. Pork again took ano ther jump, and new mesa sold at 119 50 a $19 62J; old do. was $18 75, and now prims at $15 75. Other provision were in fair demand at steady, full prices. About 1,200 hnJs. Cuba sugar soli at steady prices. Abcut 2 000 bales of compressed cAton were engaged for Liverpool at 3-lGd. a 7 32 J. A few barrels cf flour grottad at the Croton Mills, ta this city, from Bouthern red wheat, received by Meesn. Coleman A Oo. per steamer from Cha lea ton, grown the present season In South Carolina, mere exhibited yesterday at the Corn Exchange, And held on sale at $13. This is the first new flour teen in this market made from grain of tbe present year's growth. The Police Commissioners?the Mayor and Re ?order present-held a session yesterday, and mads progress in the hearing o! tbe cases of policeman Linn, ai'.d Mesas. Neilson, Church, Wells, and Han ratty. The four last named stand charged with very groan conduct at the house of a German in avenue 41, during ibis month. Judge Morris yesterday granted the application for'the reaapral of the trial ef the Chemical Bank forger's from.?Le Court of Sessions to the Court of Oyer aid Tqrat'ncr. Tbe ?**e of Jermoine fierce*, charged with bringing fc-nAfrta n boy into this port, with intent to make hi*n a slapi, came up in the United Htatss District AV* >rrey'e office yesterday, and the de fendant was hold in twenty thousand dollars bonds to answer. The Dunkirk e.tpim. train, on the New York and Brie Railroad, whU'h Mt New York at seven o'clock yesterday morning, ran nto a freight train near PortJervls. The coli'sioa was not a very serious one, bntthe engine of .'he spreestrain was badly broken, and one or two of tie cars of the other irain were somewhat smat, hedcp. Fortunately no person was injured. The oo.''!*** was attributed to some mismanagement of a sw.'tch. The Know Nothings of E?st <?. vPa., yesterdsy held a mass meeting. The attad^Mto was Urge, and the greatest enthusiasm prevails*'- Resolutions ratifying end endorsing the Philadelphia platform were adopted. Judge Conrad, of Philadelphia, made a speech on the oocasion. The particulars of a bloody ntelde on botUd the ship William Stetson, yesterday morning, doling whlh one of tbe crow jumped overboard to escape fro* Us assailants, aa Is alleged, may bs found in another co umn. Jf the circumstances, as detailed, are corroborated up"on the investigation, the qase In ot unusual bruta^ty, and mult* th* severest fruajchAeat, . j The Military Operation* In the Black Sea. It is quite a mistake to suppose tiut the Al lies are carrying al before them in the Black Sea. This is seen at a glanoe on refer ring to the files brought by the Asia. Ou the 6th inst. the telegraph announced that the bom buidment of Stb^stopol had begun again, and about the same time we learned that General Pelistfer bad taken the White Tower and the Ifamelon. Hence arose in certain quarters an impression?whidh we find reflected in a few country journals?that the Allies were about assaulting the city, and carrying it by storm. No mistake could be greater. The works on the Mamelon and the White Tower were parts of a counter-approach, thrown up by the Rus sians in order to outflank and possibly to en filade the advanced French works. The former is a hill between the fourth paralleled the curtain wall, from which, as far back as Febru ary last, Canrobert found it necessary to dis lodge the Russians. Being exposed as it was to the fire of some of the most powerful Russiau batteries, the French could not hold it, but evacuated it the next day; the Russians re l occupied it, and ever since have been extending the line of which it may be considered the start ing point. Had the Russians been allowed to hold it and prosecute their work of counter-approach, the French trenchea would soon have been untenable; Pelissier only yielded to necessity when he attacked it, and carried it at a loss of nearly 3.000 men placed hors du eombat, Having taken it, the French find themselves in the very same posi tion as they occupied in February; they oan not hold It unless the Russian batteries which command it, and especially the formidable Ma lakoff, be silenced. Hence the renewed bom bardment, which, it may safely be taken for granted, is undertaken solely in the hope of si lencing the more formidable Russian batteries and giving the French time to entrench and strengthen themselves as solidly aB they can in their captured work. If the feint succeeds, an advantage will undoubtedly accrue to the Allies, inasmuch as they will be possessed of a work considerably nearer to the Russian lines than their nearest parallel; but the advantage will be accompanied with a corresponding risk, and will not hasten or facilitate the assault. Indeed, whatever the British journals may say, there never was a time at which the cap ture of Sebastopol by assault appeared more distant. In a very short time wc may expect to hear of the cholera and fever breaking out in the allied camp. No man, say topographers, can expose himself to the Crimean dews without fatal results; yet the Allies must guard the trenches. In July and August, the heights of Cherson are the seat of a frightful and deadly ophthalmia; of this scourge the troops must take their share. The correspondent of the London Times writes thattce want of water has been already felt; and complains bitterly that the departments whose business it is to see after this necessary of life have contented themselves with a scientific examination of the locality; which satisfying them that water ought to be' found there, they have paid no attention to the fact that the cavalry horses were already on short allowance. Fever, cholera, opthatmia, and thirst are a bad look out for the summer. But, leaving Sebastopol, ol whose capture no pemua of judgment will expect to hear this many a day, what are the a.ui? to do else where? We know, now, that for some reason or other, the Russians had long ago decided to abandon Ktrtch and Yeniknle. Probably they had not men and means to defend them. Pos sibly they lorssaw that their capture would entail no very serious consequences. At all I events, whether these were, the causes, or whe ther the Russians were, as the English say, scared by the appearance of the armament which turned Cape Takil Bouroune, the ports were abandoned and a small Russian fleet cap tured. Next, a portion of the same squadron did not capture, but bombarded and otherwise molested, the Azoff ports of Gtnitchi and Ara bat. Here, it is understood, a quantity of pro visions were taken "aDd destroyed." Why destroyed? Have the Allies never lacked pro visions that they should gaily destroy six millions of rations? It looks very much as though the destruction had been iutended to con ceal the quantity ol the articles destroyed. Still, it is to be presumed that Genitchi will fall, and probably Arabat as well. Both are small places, unlikely to be able to resist the strong naval force under Lyons and Bruat. Then the Allies will be masters of the Bea of Azoff. Woat next? They may sail towards the mouth of the Don, burn Taganrog, and plunder the country resi dences in the neighborhood; they may bombard the few villages on the eastern bank of the river; they may advance within sight of the Delta, and gaze on the sunken boats and care ful bars which forbid their advance upouTcher kask. Or on the other haud they may launch their gunboats on the Sirwasb, from Genitchi, and pilot them towards Perekop. This is ob viously the mop* likely plan to be pursued. For the other could lead to none but fruitless triumphs. Upon the result of the attack upon Perekop everything will obviously depend. If it can be secured, and held, the fall of Sebastopol becomes a mere matter of time. But before it can be attacked, the army of Simpheropol must be beaten, or it will be neither effectual to take nor possible to hold Perekop. The plan of the sum mer is therefore, as we undcrstand.it, nearly as follows:? Twenty thousand men garrison the Straits of Kertch and cut off the Crimea from supplies from the Don. Three-fourths of the available force?a hundred thousand men, if possible move from Sebastopol due north, over the Tcherneya, upon Bakshiserai and Simphero pol, and in all probability engage the Hussions in the mountains between Mac kenzie's Farm and the Belbek The pros pect is that these will be under the commaad of General Pelissier, and that Raglan will be left n sole command in the Crimea. Taking it for granted? success is always taken for granted n such plans?that the Russians arc beaten in the first battle, and that a sufficient .garrison is lodged in Simpheropol to hold it, a movement will next be made for a junction with the Turks, who will advance from Koelov. Simul taneously with this the gunboats attached to the naval squadron will enter the Sirwteb; aul army and gunboats will advance together against Perekop. If Terekop is as strongly fortified as Sebastopol?and it is said to bo? the tflose of the campaign will be a repetition oflMt vear's. If it i8 not, the English will enjoy the satisfaction of having something to show at last ilior the arrogance of the* booats. and the insulting defiance they have showerod upon their cocmy. Important Democratic Movements.? The friends of Marcy in this city have been holding a few private meetings of late, for the purpose oi devising ways and means for bringing him out tor the Presidency. This is an upoill busi nfw, and the only possible way in which any project can be hit npon to bring Marcy out, is to advertise aud offer a liberal premium for a feasible plan. The old fellow is so completely spavined and broken-winded that there is no other way in which he can be brought out from the superannuated old fogies of which he is the chief. Of a far different character is the late movement of the Young Men's Democratic Union Club for a grand blow out in the Metro politan theatre on the Sbth of the month. At this meeting, Governor Seymour, Senator Hunter of Virginia, but first and most important of all, Henry A. Wise, are to be among the speakers. Here, too, will be anoth er opening offered by Captain Rynders and ih ; young democracy to George Baucroft, Charles O'Conor, John McKeon, James T. Brady, Francis B. Cutting, and other aristocratic de mocrats, to re-unite and fraternize agaiu with the rank and file of the every day democracy Let these high and mighty democratic leaders think of the spoils of 1856, and appropriate the occasion for putting themselves in a good potation for the prospective division of the plunder. It may be the last good chanoe for a front seat. At present Governor Seymour, among our New York soit shell democratic big fith, is the only one that may be said to be worth a straw in regard to the prospects of a place on the democratic ticket. The presence of Senator Hunter at this de mocratic reunion will be of secondary moment, for he is among the broken-winded nags of the day. But the presence of Governor Wise will be a grand feature of the meeting. We are downright glad that he is coming, and hope he will not disappoint us. We desire to show him the difference, as far as we are concerned, be" tween New York hospitality and Mr. Wise's notions of Virginia chivalry. In the late Vir ginia canvass we incurred some considerable trouble and expense in reporting and publish ing several of Mr. Wise's best stump speeches, not alone throughout Virginia or the United States, but throughout the civilized world. In return for this useful and generous service, Mr. Wise picked a per sonal quarrel with one of our reporters, and endeavored publicly to excite a disturbance against him. Not satisfied with this, Mr. Wise amused himself in the indulgence of no very flattering or gentlemanly expressions against the editor of this journal. Now let him come to New York, and we shall endeavor to show him the agreeable contrast between politeness to a visiter from another State, and coarse, un gentlemanly and inhospitable treatment. Let Mr. Wise come along, then. We shall aid in giving him a flattering reception; and more than this, if the democracy pnt him for ward for the Presidency, we shall second the motion, in preference to Pierce, Marcy, or any other of the old democratic fogies. We desire to give Mr. Wise a lesson of genuine Virginia chivalry and hospitality, not as he understands it, but as we understand it here in New York. Let him come along. The Liquor Law en Brooklyn.?It ia said that Mayor Hall, of Brooklyn, differs from Mayor Wood inhia interpretation of the Liquor law, and joins the prohibitionists throughout. It is understood that though Mayor Wood has wisely decided to suspend the operation of the law till after the fourth, Mayor Hall intends to make a parade of -execrating it, and to order the police of Brooklyn to seize remorselessly all liquors, whether foreign or domestic. We trust that the Mayor of Brooklyn will think twice ere he does anything so foolish. It is easy enough to get up a riot here; and though riots oan no doubt be put down with great facility, the abstract satisfaction of having vindicated the law would be a poor consolation to Mayor Hall, if he caused a score or less of human beings to be put to death for refusing to obey a statute which the courts afterwards pro nounced unconstitutional. Greeley in Cliciiy.?Our Fourierite philo sopher, Greeley, may thank Baruum for his late imprisonment ia the jail of Ciichy, in Paris, When the Crystal Palace speculation had its back broken, the stockholders, in a desperate effort to save themselves, fell back upon Bar num. He had proved his ability to carry through any humbug, however transparent, disgusting or abominable. He had made money out of an old negress, a woolly horse, a codQsh mermaid, and various other devices which ordi nary swindlers would have refused to touch; and Barnum was therefore the man to save the stockholders of the Crystal Palace. They hum bugged the prince of humbugs in the trick, and Greeley in the bargain. They called upon us, offered us stock apon the most accommo dating terms, if we would give Baruum a lift; but we turned them over to Greeley as their man; and sure enough they caught him. Hence his arrest and imprisonment in Paris as a debtor to a French exhibitor in the Crystal Palace. Baruum is responsible for it?Barnum got htm into the scrape, and from the profits of the late baby show Barnnm ought to pay the costs Let Citizen Mucklewrath hand in his bill at the Museum. Despatch of the Southern Mail.?la 1853 we received the gratifying intelligence that the great Southern mail between New Orleans and New York, was to be put ahead twelve hours, or would occupy but five and a half days in coming from New Orleans to this city. We patiently waited during the whole year for the fulfilment of the promise, but the change never took place. In the spring of 1.851 arrange ments wert* again made to shorten tho time, bntby daily meeting, we presume, with some mishap, the mail never came through in the time specified. This Bummer the affair was to be arranged to a certainty. A convention of the Southern railroad directors was held, who, in connection with the Post Office Depart ment, assembled in Washington, and settled matters to their own satisfaction, and published a statement of the time to be occupied in the despatch of the mail between each plaoe on the rente?which arrangement was to go into effect on the 10th of Jane ?whereby the mail would be loaded in New York in five days from New OMmbs. All seemed fair and promising at the time; bat we have not yet received the benefit of the change. As it is now, the great South ern mail leaves Philadelphia at two o'clock P. M., by thd Amboy route, and arrives in this city about eight o'clock the same evening, which of course is too late an hoar to be of any benefit to the bueintee conununi*-/ before the next day. We cannot see why that mail?the moat important one?should be conveyed by the long route between Philadelphia and this city, and occupy six boure in its transportation, when it could be brought by the Jersey City route in four hours. The present Post Office Depart ment has been more deficient in its regula tion of the mails than any previous one within our experience. Brigadier General James Watson Webb Reduced to the Ranks.?Our military cotem porary of the Courier, after a career of many interesting fluctuations and vicissitudes, is re duced to the rauka He began his military course as a lieutenant in the regular United Stab s army, from whioh he was promoted to the State militia?first a captain, thenaoolonel, ard lastly, through his partizan influence as a whig journalist, he was advanced to the high distinction of a Brigadier General, by Governor Hunt. Now, the whig party having been knocked all to pieces and disbanded, the same question arises with the Chevalier Webb which suggested itself to Mr. Webster when he found himself standing alone in Captain Tyler's Cabi net?" Where am I to go ?" But, suiting the action to the word, without waiting for instius tioDs, our enterprising Chevalier has fallen back into the ranks of the Seward coalition. Citizen Robespierre Mucklewrath has taken him 111 hand accordingly, and is teaching him the discipline of the camp; and we wish the drill sergeant and his pupil a good time of it. The Chevalier Webb is under a sort of com pact to serve W. H. Seward in this crisis. When the latter was Governor he saved the Chevalier from the penitentiary, whither he otherwise would have gone on account of that ridiculous duel with Tom Marshall, of Kentucky. It is understood that as an equivalent for this service to Webb, he engaged when the time should arrive, to do all that he could in behalf of his benefactor, Mr. Seward, for the Presidency. Hence the present course of the Chevalier on the Nebraska question. His time has come for the fulfilment of his bond. We may deplore his humiliating position as an underling of Citizen Mucklewrath & Co. in the service of tbe nigger worshippers, but we must approve the fidelity of tbe Chevalier to his con tract. It is not as agreeable as the fifty-two thousand dollar compact with Nicholas Biddle, winding up with the bankrupt law, we admit; but still there is something magnificent in the gcod faith exhibited by our chivalric Chevalier in sticking even to a bad bargain. For some time past, as a BrigadieivGeneral of the peace establishment, our Chevalier has pursued pretty much bis own political course. There may be some difficulty in reducing him to thorough discipline under bis new enlistment, but Citizen Mucklewrath, aided by Lloyd Garrison, Lucy Stone, and the women's rights women of the Seward anti-slavery league, will doubtless be able, among them,'to take the stiffness out of his joints, and make him a flexible and obedient soldier. We may pity the case of our prcux Chevalier, but there is no help for it. Seward, like Sbylock, must have his bond. Kansas Fbeb Sou. Meetings.?They had a free soil Kansas meeting in the Tabernacle the other night, and another on a very email icalc last night, and the parties in terested will probably keep up and extend this plan of operations as long as they can moke it pay. The prime movers, like Governor Reedcr, have bought up various tracts of land in Kansas, which they want to sell. Hence these patriotic gatherings and appeals for more money and more emigrants. It is a laadjobbing speculation upon Ireo soil pre tences. Let all the greenhorns subscribe to the emigrant fund accordingly, or go out and buy a farm of these free soil speculators, at three or four times its first cost, and the cause will go on swimmingly. Citizen Mucklewrath will advance loans on short time, upon good security, and for a good stiff interest. The financiers in the cause of freedom can't be ex pected to work for nothing. A National Prohibitory Liquor Law?Se cretary Marcy its Apostle.?We give, in an other place, the speech of E. C. Deiavan, deli vered at Albany on Thursday, to the State Tem perance Society. Mr. Delavaa's speech is worth printing for several reason?, but more especially because it contains a letter from Marcy, in which he states that there is no treaty extant which could prevent Congress from making a na tional Prohibitory Liquor law, by interdicting importation altogether. This must be a more for the succession by the Secretary of State. Marcy's policy, it seems by this, is to lead the temperance party by advocating the cxte^ion of N'eal Dow'e law, and Neul Dow's style of en forcing it, over all the States and Territories in the Eh ion. Then Marcy would be a temperance candidate for the Presidency?Noal Dow the second mau on the ticket?and we should have cur army and navy engaged in the demolition of grogshops and the bombardment of fashion able hotels. There is a good time coming. Academy or Music?The La Grande Troupe ?If tbe pfrfoncanceB of thia troupe are limited in number they at leant present the attraction of variety. On Thursday evening "Norma" vru given to a very good bouse; last uigbt tbe "Puritani" was produced to a better one, and on Monday nest "Don Giovanni" wlli, we Lave no doubt, attract a large audience. Tbe latter le an opera that never fails to draw. Two new ilebuis will bo made In this piece?namely, those of Madame Catarina de Ferrari in thtrolc of Dsna Elvira, and ofFignor Giulio in the part of Mabetto. Madame Rose De Tries will also male her first appearance here, alter an absence of two years, in the character of Dona Anna. It is said that the Zerliaa of Madame La Grange is one of her best parts. The Girma.v Opera.?"Tho Daughter of the Regi ment," done into German, was given last evening at Wallack's theatre, to a rather thin house. The cast in cluded M'lle D'Ormy.as Marie; Hvir Quint, as Toalo; Hsrr Muller, as Sulpice, and Herr Boettner, as Hortensius. M'lle D'Ormy has one of the finest contralto voices we have ever heard; It is almost unequalled in qnality quantity and compass. Ehe is, however, as we have said before, careless and slovenly in execution. She acts with spirit, and has a good face and figure. Her Marie was marked by all her beauUee and ail her faalte. It was, withal, an enjoy*ble performance. The other characters wire fairly rendered. There le a g?ed orchestra, conducted by Herr Robert Steepel.

Mr. U'Clleland, ?eeretary*of the Interior, told a friend that if Wllaan was removed, be would send in his resig nation to the President. Hon. Jesse D. Bright arrived this evening. The Naval Medical Board lately convened In this city, and composed of Surgeons Whelan, Oornick and Oillard, have adjourned. A survey was made of Command?r Kinggold, and the Board report that they can see noth ing in his conduct or language which would convey or sustain the idea of existing mental derangement. Know ilofhlng Ratification Meeting at Eos ton, Pa. THE PHILADELPHIA PLATFORM ENDORSED. Easton, June 22, 1866. An immense meeting of the Amerisan party, and Others friendly to their cause, assembled In the public square last night for the purpose of ratifying and con Aiming tha proceedings of the recent Convention of that party held in Philadelphia. The crowd was very great, probably the greatest ever assembled around the old court houso. The preamble and resolutions were adopted with entire unanimity, and the whole proceed ings attended with the highest enthusiasm. The msat ing was organised by the appointment of Dr. Samuel Sandt to the chair, whereupon the following resolutions were adopted:? Whereas, The National Council of the American party has issued a platform of principles which is comprehen sive of all the great principles of the day, and specific in its utterance upon topics which agitate the mind of the ceuntry; and whereas, It commends itself by its frank avowal of the leading designs of the party and its fear less nationality of sentiment? therefore R( solved, That we will and do Hereby enderae it, and acknowledge it as our present political creed, and that by it we will stand and battle lor tne great Interests ef the country and the cause of political liberty, in opposi tion to all tyranny, whether civil or ecclesiastical. Resolved, That we deprecate In the'most solemn and emphatic terms the repeal of the Missouri Compromise act of 1820, as a breach of a sacred compact between the North and the South, which for thirty-tour yeers was a bond of natural peace and tranquillity. That It Is the sense of this meeting that the twelfth section of the platform does not endorse the Missouri outrage, as has been alleged by a portion of the press, but refers the whole subject of slavery to the proper legislation of the country, through the individual responsibility of the repieeentatives of the people, and therefore does not commit the party to any epeciAc action. Resolved, That foreigners who Ace from oppression at home, fxom a love of liberty, and who sympathise with tbe genius ot our government and the spirit of our In stitutions, ate welcome to our oountry; and that while we extend an Invitation to such, we would exclude pau pers, felons, and the enemies ot civil and religious liberty. Resolved, That we recommend an oh a modification of our naturalisation laws as will afford to foreigners who wish to become adopted citizens of the country, suffi cient time to be educated into sn appreciation and love of republican freedom, and to become Americanised in sentiment and sympathy. On the adoption of the resolutions, the President in troduced the Don. E. Joy Morris, of Philadelphia, who held the immense concourse in exelted and eager attention to his eloquent end masterly exposition of the principles, doc trines end objects of the neat American party for more than an hour, frequently eliciting cheers and enthu siastic outbursts of well merited applause. The elo quent speaker took up the platform of principles adopt ed by tbe party, and discussed them tu,cUun with great powsr and most thrilling effect, lie dwelt with em phatic earnestness and eloquent force oa the grand mis sion of the mighty national party, whose object and aim ho described it to be to pour oil upon the troubled waters of sectional strife, to conciliate the conAloiing interests of opposing localities, and at all ha tarda to save and pieserve our glorious Union. His description of the insidious encroachments and wily aggressions of the Papal party were graphic and lntenucly exciting, fraught, as they were, with instructions drawn from his own personal experience during his travels in Italy and other Pupal oountries. This portion of his address was powerfully effective, and elicited the strongest manifes tations of deep and Intense feeling on the subject from bis auditcry. He closed hie able speech amidst the loudest and most prolonged cheering. Judge Conrad was next introduced. The appearanoe of this gentleman was balled with thretf hearty cheers; but it was evident, from his fagged and exhausted ap pearance, that he wss too much worn down by his offi cial labors at home to do justice to his own great powers, or satisfy ths high expectations of hui eager audience. He said he was already worn out by his offic al Tabors at homeland must prepare the meeting for a dii appointment. Hi" speech, however, was a powerful auttltaiuMithitat dofenfiO of th? AmarUaut ysmaiflx, a?A was frequently intairupted by wild bursts of applause. H s appoligy for the previous secrecy of the organiza tion in its operations, was moat happy, and completely satisfactory, and his eloquent peroration, in which he lefeired in glowing terms to the great conservative dea tioy of tbe mighty national party styled " American," now in bold and open array, brought out the most hsarty and prolonged pheering. The President then Introduced to the meeting Mr. Wh liax Mohan. Mr. M. made a most effective address, which was attentively listened to, and elicited immense enthusiasm. Mr Hknry L Smith, of Philadelphia, closed the meet log with a speech, of great point and animation of man ncr, in which the bogus democracy and their dough faced leaders waro handled uomsrcifully. His address was very effective, and received with great applause. Alter the meeting, the speakers were serenaded, and Judge Conrad made a short speech In response to the calls for him.

Mr. Pitman, of fiaxtlett, presented the following :? IV hereon the preamble and joint resolution in relation to the grant of the public lands for the benefit of the indigent insane, have been passed by this House, aad sent to the Senate for concurrence?which preamble con tains misstatements of the facts of the case of such a natnre.as to reflect discredit upon this House, by show ing its members to be ignorant of matters upon which they assume to act, and thereoy placing upon the pub lic records a standing reproach upon the character of the 8tate? therefore, Resolved, that a member ba sent to the Senate, requiring that boiv to return said preamble and resolution to this House, in order that the said mis statements may be corrected, and e uch discredit and re ? roach may be removed frcm the members of this leuse, and from the character of the Senate. A long and most violent discussion arose; after which the motion to adopt was lost, 203 to 68. Ike following is the preamble referred to above:? "Whereas the bill granting 12,000,000 acres of public lsnds to be Appropriated pro ra'a among the several States of onr Union for the benefit of the indigent in sane passed the United States Senate at the last session of Congress by a vote of 25 yeaa to 12 nays, and the House of Representatives by a vote of 81 to 13, yot failed to become a law in consequence of tns veto mes sage of the ftesident of the United States " The objections to tbe above were that tho bill of Con gress specified ten Instead of twelve millions of acres, as stated in the preamble agreed to by the House. The preamble stated that the bill had paescl Congress at tbe last cession, whereas it had passed at the one pre vious, and that instead of the bill providing for a pro rata division of the public lands among the States, ae stated in the preamble, the bill provides that there be appropriated in a compound ratio of their geographical extent.

Dear Sir?The letter addressed to you by Sr. Valient*, dated the 19th Inst., has been written under the errone ous impression that the readers of the "mm carry their credulity as far as stupidity; .because nobody believes that not a single fact can be published without exposing the safety of some persons or families residing in Cnba. He says that an idle curiosity only requires tbe publication ot the facte; but these are necessary to vindicate the honor of the members of the Junta that are laboring under very serious charges, which prove wicked and fallacious intentions, or at least condetnna ble carelessness. It is necessary that Sr. Valieute should understand that bis letter has all the appearances of hypocrisy. All true Cubans believe that there Is some thing wrong at the bottem of this affair.

Launch.?The ship Black Sea, of 800 tone, will be launched from the yard of Mr. Lupton, at Green Point, next week. She la owned by Fonek ft Meincke, of New York, and ia intended fer the European trade. The New Steamship Ocean Biro ?This new steamer men* ?? inn %?i,? ?? ta???4wj dona tne bay, with a large party of invited gnsata, aid ia stated to have given every satisfaction to all interested. Her engine averaged 17 revolutions per minute with a pressure of 23 pounds to the square inch. The hull was partly built by Mr. Wm. Griffiths, and the machinery ia the work of Messrs. Guloa, Boardman & Co., of the Novelty Works. She was originally called the-Wm. Norris, or the "six day steamer," the enterprise having started with the idea of building a steamer capable of orossing the Atlantic within that time. Owing to the failure, however, of Mr. Norris, the idea was abandoned, the vessel sold at auction to Capt. Graham, and tin imbed by another builder, on another plan, and christened the Ocean Bird. She la 240 feet In length, 38 feet beam, 24 feet depth of bold, and baa three daeks. Her height between each deck is 7 feet 0 inches. Her burthen is 2,260 tons, carpenter's measurement. Her cylinder is 66 inches in diameter, with 12 ieet stroke, with four boilers containing over 6,4(i0feetof fire surfaoe. She bas, in addition to the ordinary kelson, e heavy plate iron kelson, which form air tight chambers, twenty incbes in width. These are cross braced with iron bare, forming life boats, or water tanks, and upon which rest the lower deck beams, connecting by heavy iron damps with the dead woods and lower deck, which makes it a'most impossible for the ship to strain in any seaway. These lien kelsons, or tanks, run from stem to stern in the lower hold, and are crowed and braced at right angles with the same materials, dividing the lower deck into sepal ate sections or compartments, eaeh water t'ght and distinct from each ether, making the ehip n ? perfect life boat. The sides of tbe ship are crass biased at right angles, In equates of four feet, with heavy iron maps of 4>4 by % inches. Tbe iron water tanks will cent sin 20.000 gallons, and her iron bunkers will hold 700 tons of coal. Tbe boilers, ecg.ne and Ore room are enclosed with heavy iron plates, masing her fire proof. She is thoroughly ventilated, and has capacity for 200 chief cabin passengers, aad 600 steerage pesaeegere, and is finished in the moat approved manner, and for strength, beauty and buoyancy cannot be excelled. It is tbe opinion of practical tinmen that she will be very fast and prove an excellent sea boat. She ia coppered and copper fastened, and her capaoity ia equal to the Georgia, on board of which vessel twelve hundred Call, forniane were stowed. This ship will be ready for sea by the let of July, when, wo underaland, she will pro ceed to the Mediterranean, and, if the war lasts, may probably be engaged, like a great many other American vessels, in transporting material to the theatre of operations.
