tfiemselves during a whale evening #* fourpence or six Ce. Alt travellers g.:t ficeoed everywhere 1 have yet I do not consider the swindles practised upon my eelf and others here as a matter worthy of comment. Neither - h*l I I seek to astonish the verdant, ax U iho almost universal custom witli scribbling tourism, by giving elaborate description* of the public buildings, ex hibitions, Ac., of every place hey visit ? copied almost word for word from the handbooks which can be pro cured iu such pi ofiuion for a tritle everywhere you go. As one of these descriptive books contains a great ileal more information about a single structure than auy man could possibly acquire by his own observation ami Inves tigation* in a whole month, if any friend ol mine U spe cially I'esirou* of knowing all about lliu history and do tail* cf any particular building, institution, or other mat ter ol interest laying in the direction of uiy travel*. and will so notify lue, 1 shall see that lie is furnished with the desired Information by the next mail. The duels, which extend for miles, ore enormous mas>e? of mast nry, but one is at a low to conceive the object of i he high fort-like walls which surround them, utile r-s it is to shut out the view anil ref eshlng breeze of the river from the staoct and people These docks are all owntd by one gigantic monopoly culltd the Dock Com Cy, ami immense additions are again being made to in. Though a ship is Mile enough when in one from everything but fire, the job of hauling her out U a most tedious and annoying operation. 1 JSeit to the docks, St. (.'eorpu's Hall and the depot or the London ai d Liverpool Railroad, opposite, are perhaps the most worthy of a New Yorker's notice, l'ho Brut of these is a noble structure, but is so miserably located that it U invisible from nearly every pnlut until you are direc'ly upon it. U is built ? through a most glaring and inexplicable blunder ? on the side ot a hill, which lg itself overshadowed by others that rise towering above it. It i* a very chaste and imposing structure, but even if In a proper position to be seen, on immense dome of some aort seems indinpeuslblo to relievo its present squatty ap pearance. The courts moot here, and I have been much amused during mj visits while they have been In session. The barristers, as they style themselves, and the judges, wear gnat c.luinsj white horse-hair wigs and long black clerical looking gowns, and white neck ties, pre ?ituly like those worn by our Episcopal clergymen, but in all other respects there seemed to be no estellti il difference between thorn and our "Tombs" and small civic court pettifoggers. The same awfully impressive?' ''Remember, sir, you ire now testifying un der the Isarful solemnity of au oath, and that unless you confine yourself rigidly to ilio tcuth, you nt?y jeopar dise, aye, even ruin, your immortal soul'" ? ''Do you wish, man, to lie understood at swearing to thai?" ami so forth. There were one or Iwo fellows wbo carried this sort of business to a most ridiculous extent, while another till, pug-nosed cliip exhibited marked perse ve ranco and caption ne*s in splitting hairs about the merest trifles. 1 should gladly have parted with a few guineas for the pleasure of seeing our I 'i ter M ul V ay handle 'his parly In r an hour or twn, on bluffing ml technicalities. J'etervoul l soon take tho conceit out of ?hi m. At the adjournment of the c urt there is a sud den mustering of some twenty or thirty individuals, drcsfid in knee breaches, long, dark coats, and capos (aced with red, and hats with gold lace bands, '? nd orna mented with cockades. They have been hanging about the neigh bur boo I during its session, and all strangers have taken them fir livery footmen. Each one is novr armed with a king spear or halbort, fr im the upper part of the stsll' of wliiqii two or three big red tussels are dargling. t'u inqulnng, you ascertain that Ihey are the high sheriff's b, dy guard, and presently you see thvui conduct th it important personage to his carriage. Thus it is that the governing power in England clings with sn absurd tenacity to countless expensive absnrc'itie i which have long since survived the vile ne cessities originally called them into existence. This body guard, which in the day of its Croatian and for years alter, doubtless inspired awe, now only excites ridi cule and merriment even among the chill 'en. The railroad depot is distinguished as being that of tho first railroad on which a looomotivc ran Its immense ?uspended roof U unaui passed, anil the tunnel which rum under the city for more than a mile, with an olevatljn at its outlet on Edge hill of more thm l'-O feet, has be?n a ?work of great skill and immense labor. There are two other tunnels of equal length, which c une out at tho same point from other parts of tho town, and the cars and allure drawn nut with ropes by stationary engines. There is nothing else about, the building worthy of note. Ihme visited Cit. James' Cemetery, and the Necropolis several tan s in my explorations of the localities iu wnich lhey ate situated. The firs', is iu the heart of the upper or southern cud of the town. It is somewhat larger than our distributing reservoir, and the beautifully shaded embank men*, which furrouud.tit rises considerably hi, Iter above the hollow in which the graves are than the reservoir wall does above th" water insi.le. It cati be said with great propriety that any chap deposited here has been "shoved uudur." The Necropolis is ou the rear of the town at the top of the Bruns wick road, and even this is otily about live actor, hut it ir surrounded by a wall apparently high and thick emu4. l1, if pierced for gnus, for the defence of the town in that direction. Even in tun home of the dead, you aro again reminded of the utter contempt in which tho poor toili.ig meul .l is universally looked upon 111 this benighted land of well fed negro pUiets. The first thing which meet* your eye on euteriug is a huge sign, notifying all that, * No dogs or nursemaids are allowed in this Necropolis." The bills of marly every public cxlu iltion illustrate the same ides, by adding afti 1 the words price of admission, "Ladies anil gentlemen" -o much, 'Working people half 11 ice. ' After taking a tour the other evening through the vnri cus hour es iu the vicinity ' Williamson and Queen's ?quarts, I verged off to s ards Scotland road, to see what was going 1 n in hicLmond row and vicinity. Most of the thot ougbfarrs called roads in Liverpool, it must be re menibettd. ore densely populate 1 streets. Keeping on through Scotland road until 1 cimo to Bennington Bosh, 1 turned dow n, and In 11 ^hort timo fonnd myself in I.I n 10 kiln lane. Here my atten'ion wis attracted by th# bois terous spouting of a powerful lunged individual a. short distance ahead. < )n pursuing my way in the illrajtlo i of the sound, I soon arrived opposite a very dirty, dingy looking house, in the window of wliich wis a thing intended to 1 0 a transparent siyn, informing all wh?m it c nccrned that tho " Mutual Improvement Society" were then and tin re in session. Crossing over anc msVing my way. as well its th" ditnnejs of the d irk and rickety stairs would u linit of, up into t'.ioh'ill.

Perc Ivlng ! was an American, he asked me how ha made out, nre Burning, of course, that I Ind be '.rd every word of lil> rhapsody. It is needless to say that I assured him i' was tme of the most brilliant and unanswerable efforts 1 ?ver listened 1 1. Kn m a little printed bill which was handed ine I lemnoil that any ths questions to be ilis ?ussed by the society were the following : ? " Dots the human race spring ftom one pair t" "Would the . pread of education tend to dlmlnsh crimes" " Is tho faculty of ie?on confined to man!** " Are the people politically prepared for an extension ?f the Mitrraget'' The latter was the one then tinder consideration, and ?ay sturdy lunged friend who liad just sit. doWn had l>een sustaiuing the affirmative sMo of the ques tion in reply, as I lcatnel, to a tall rVotch tailor, who was smoking a pipe on the left of the chairman. A little, shrivelled fallow, with a keen eye, and armed with a mo.-t formidable pile ot documents and elaborate notes, nest eutoied. in opposition to the oxteti aion. He had evidently read a grest deal, but did n >' Mm to n ulerstsnd his subject. Nearly all his illustra tions, though seemiugly ooneioaive, were "aslly turned agninst himself, and after a very tedious discourse in which he made tho most sweeping inis'atementi against our leople and government, he closo<l by saying that al though fully conscious that hi? positions were unassail able, he should have uo ? bjectlon to hearing his strange friend (referring to me) make the attempt. Accepting the invitation, I arose and was greo'ed quite warmly by the almost despairing friends of the sullrage, and beiievo me, if ever I came down on any "no with deserved and withering severity, l did so on thu occasion. As 1 pro ceeded ourside became gradually tlusbei with exulta tion. Scouts were sent out to bring in the faithful, und ere I bad got through the whole ball, stair-way and lane te front, were filled with at tenth e and eotiiuslastlc lis teners, and as I closed, such a shout ? ?o long and so desfening ? was never before heard in the region of I.lme kiln lane. Even the old w iadmill 1 re-echoed the prolong ?d cheer of tiiuniph which rent the air. Finding all o\ cuses utterly useless, I accompanied a large detachment of my delighted adherents into a tavern close by, nnd, much against niy will, emptied so ne half dozen pots of the worst beer 1 have tasteal in England before 1 c tub] getaway. 1 am uowjust on the point of leaving f?r I/m oon, from which phee you will hesr from me imme diately.

As 1 had antici pated her by some pretty severe stricture.! on the impu dent and drivelling hypocrisy if certain notoriety seeking m< uulehanks of both sexes in Knglaud, I was entirely saved from her advance*. At Ibe lirst stopping we were reinforcod by a French gentleman with a tremendous pair of whiskers anl mous tache, a a< uJ# old chap on crutches, wi'h a soro leg, and a jolly hlaeAtyed woman willing aliout 2A0 pounds with two stiapping children.

The public mind here h.n nettled down, after the extra ordinary perturbation into which it was thrown by the exciting news oflaat week. The apprehension* awakened bj the obstinate end unexpected resistance olthe earrison at Sebostopol are allayed, and there is not only a convic tion (hut the w. i nil] not bo prolonged, but even that peace is not very fur distant. It in certain that the Allies arc more than sa'isticd by a success far bey<?I Die i r Loj>os, and that they would like nothing betier than to renew negotiation* to-mor" row. The difficulty now will be to induce Hun da to lay down her aims, ai' cr receiving ?o .evore a blo-v ai her cvacual ion of Southern Sebostopol lias entailed uiwm her. To continue the comest with England and France will cost her heavy Mieriticcs, uud her utmost ft.Torta nan in dure her no advantage over thcio. if Mbe ehoo>es to abandon the Orimek, end loll hack within her natural borders, she may, without any great loss in men or ter litory, prolong the war iudetiniudy. Thil might lead to dfrioua consequencos for the Allioi<, for it would likely bring on a general war in Europe, with all i^ incalculable results; and amid the u niver-u' confusion an<l exhaustion that would soon ensue, Kun-ia might recovi : , both In prestige and fact, all that she ha* so fur I it. Napoleon 111. entertains proj' >' aggrandizement for France that war would nablo him to gratify, but still there are rifks that he might prefer avoiding. Ihcre m no doubt that England would gladly make peace, as her interests, both commercial and political, imperiously dictate it. You may see, therefore, from this brief view of iho situa tion of Europe, that all is in suspense. A consultation is, no doubt, going on at this moment amongst the half doxrn men who control the destinies of Europe, as to the best course to be pursued under the circumstances. Nesselrode, Manteufel and Meitcrnbh are unquestionably laying their heads together and deeply revolving upo. a final cour-e of policy, ''^hall we go on," they ashing each other, "year in and year out, il Louis Nupolcen is overthrown, and the middle classes have supplanted the oligarchy in England?

In that ca-e it la not ira po^iblo that the allies will allow them to retreat unmo lested, a an autumn campaign in the interior of the Cri mea presents almost insuperable difficulties, r.nd the pre sumed superiority of the enemy in cavalry would give them the advantage as soon os they e.nergp from the mountainous district into the vast prairie nor'h of Se bustopol. A very few i ays must decide which of these hypotheses is correct; just at present even the comman ders of the two armies may not have come to a final re solution a* respects their future operation1 . which are likely to be influenced in a great measure by political motives. It is a remarkable fact that both Russians and anti Russians agree in the conviction that this event renders the prospects of peace more remote thau ever. At one tinio it was imagined that the fall of SoUstopol would terminate the war, and every fluctuation of the siege had a corresponding etlect upon the money market. Now, on the contrary, the funds have beeu going down evor sinco tho momentous intelligence arrived, from the very natural reflection that the demands of the allies will nse with their success, while it is apprehended U?t Bu?la U not yet fufflciently weakened to surrender at discretion. The fate of Iiurope depends more than ever upon 1-ouis Napoleon- if ho says peace, there will be peace: If not, ihiMlecsoi war will continue their grim career. Ipto the present ir.oment ho has not given evidence ol any pa cific tendency, nor is he likely to neglect so lnvorablc an opportunity lor icalialng the ambitious hopes which he has cherished under tho most adverse , cirjuinstmcca. , Dreaded by his enemies, lookod up to by bis allies, res pected by neutrals, he is now in a r?.,it!?? ?f?n.d, 'i enough to turn tho strongest head, and to jnsttfy the most e- travagant dreams of conquest.

These sjHvculations, to gether with the short supplies, have contributed to raise the prices artilicislly ; and perceiving the constant move ment upwards, it is not to be wondered at that the far mers keep back their stocks of grain, in expectatlon of still higher quotations. Thus the market is but scantily supplied by land carriage, and although there are ac count* of tolerably large shipments which may be exact ed tier rirer and csnal. these are likewise bought ui y speculators before they arrive at their destination.

It is a mistake to suppose that tho Spain ol' our days is that Spain ?.f the time of its absolute Lings, ita friars and Its Inquisition, although these still have their partisans. ih.s country has learned something by experience, something in the school of Its past adversity; and the proof that the throne la not so undonbtiugly reverenced by the people, that its prestige is fading, is that the Cortes constituent thought it necessary to put the throne to vote and to holster it up by a new declaration or oath in ils lavor. But there were nineteen deputies who dared to vote against the institution, and their vote) stani re corded, and themselves walk and talk and write freely, and nobody makes them afraid. 'What is the signilkation of those associations of Cata lan workmen who-c dissolution the authorities have de cried? Why s i much intimidation? Why so much agi tation of the operatives? We are told that their insur rections arc based on the demand of Idghnr wages; that they are no more than what in Ameri ca Is called a strike. But it Is beyond a doubt that the great mass of the Catslaa operatives is Impelled by democracy or soriulihm.

This very day the operativo clais in Madrid :igi tatcs and murmurs, and is heard boldly to apostrophize tho throne and denounce the government for its pilicy, which Is not so progressive as they wish. And this very day, in fine, there aro not lacking military chiefs who are in understanding with the democratic loaders and the de puties of thin faith. Tho democrats of Madrid wished to b irn 'he concordat and the effigy of the Pope In the streets of the city, not only because of tho feeling tovards His Holiness, but abo to manifest their discontent with the moderation of the government on that question. They demand that tho nation shonld be respected, and not made tho plaything of the Roman fee. They demand that it should go for waid. and not stand still ; and it is cer'ain that the dr. niccmcy, fortifying itself little by little as it goes on, will finish by producing a revolution whose resul . may be the downfall of that thione already rotten enough, I will not say that their triumph will bo lasting; but you may he sure that, in this matter now, '"the present is pregnant of the future." The Cabinet is giving -ome signs of life ? stirring gen tly. '1 he Minister of Finance has presented various de crees in which he proposes the suppression of various of fices. Considerable sums have boon distributed also fir public works. At the end of last March tho passive classes, as they are called, or those who enjoy a salary or a pension from tho treasury without being in actual service, civil or military, amounted to the number of fifty-two thousand and fifty-one persons, and their monthly pay amounted to 13,206,^21 reals veilon, or ($810, Ml. 05-100) more than six hundred and ten thousand dollars. A new school of agriculture has just been established at a country house and farm of Queen Isabel. The loan of 111, 000,000 Is being taken up voluntarily, with a good deal better result than was anticipated. It was predicted that nobody would cone up to the rail of the government of their own accord, and that the whole loan would have to be forced in the form of an impost. Half, at least, will be taken voluntarily. J he Carlists continue to bo active and bold in Catalonia and among 1ho Pyrenees, but the persecution tbev sutler does not allow them to thrive, and they are obliged to bury themselves among tho rocks of the mountains and in the forests, or fall Into tho hands of thn troops mid the militia.

Ihe new association formed hy the un<iniet |rj.)i emigrants in the t'nited States, and the tirade sgainst 1 ngland which farms the staple of the nominlt tee's sddiess, would of thems?lve< hardly excite notice w tbi? country, where we a n full / aware of what Iriah j combination Is likely to K|ialieI and what ii uiulljr tils result of this tumid MOqaence. But the fueling with * hi eh the birth of the bow society hai been received in Amei ica is a mafer of interest; and many who lamented or wore irritatcu by the anllj>athy to England disclosed of late will be surprised on reading the lemarks of the moat widely circulated newspaper in the states, and re joice to observe that, though no strong affection for the mother country is Uiplajed, yet the d.'signs of theae vaio and noisy enemies are appreciated with common sense, and justice rendered, perhaps somewhat unwillingly, tr? the .-acriiices ot thin country for humanity and civilim ? tion. The association haa been formed by the Irishmen of' Massachusetts, and its " Great Stale Convention" duly met, attended by delegate* of flfty-flve towns. A " plat form," or series of resolutions, was adopted, aM, haT" ing thus determined what wan to be done, the delegatos Issued an address, exhorting the Irish of tlie states to aid in its execution. The precise objeot* of the society are not stated: that it has in view the liberty of its na tive land, on which the band of the oppressor is heavy; that the good time of England's difficulty haa arrived, and with it Ireland's opportunity? and that the Irish nation is to be rained up to be a glory to humanity, are matters of course, but are hardly sufficient to distin guish it definite); fn m the associations, national, provin cial, civic, and parochial, to which Irish patriotism has ; iven birth ?i liin ihe last few years. The " platform" contains three resolutions, with the first of which we heartily concur. Irishmen are desired ?' to unite in a bond ot union, forgetting the causes of past dissension and bitterne-s." Should this desirable harmony arrive, we shall rejoice, although in the opinion<of its promoters it is to give " that opportunity for which our fathers pray ? d. and wanting which they suirered glorious martyrdom." t is then resolved, secondly, that the co operation ol" all' other societies already formed is cordially invited; and, thirdly, that a convention shall meet in New York for ho purpose of carrying a united system of action hrovgh the Union ana the colonies, and to adopt an ad less to the Irish in Ireland, assuring them that their 1 rethren in America are < up and doing." Where prac tical resolutions define so little, it may bs expected that the address, no doubt intrusted to some flory genius, will soar still higher above details. There Is nothing lit it that has not often been beard before. Irishmen are to remember l.imerick ? to remember Skull and Sklbbereen. Fresh disasters, distress and difficulties press on their In veterate foe. The moment is propitious ? the means are in their hands. 'I lie Irish peasant spurns the ''Saxon shilling" which is to turn him into a recruit, and "waits impatiently for the moment when the trumpet of insur rection shall summon him to the rebels' camp." There is only one piece of practical advice in the whole docu ment, and it has probably been derived from the teach ings of experience. Subscribers in each locality are re commendtd to choose responsible men as their trea surers,- and to keep exact accounts of the money paid In. It may seem by no means wonderful that a people so discerning as the Americans should fail to be deluded by such empty demonstrations; yet a to v years ago the " Emigrant Irishmen of Massachusetts " would have re ceived the confidence of a large party and inspired sym pathy among many who doubted their prudence and their prospects of success. The real political power wielded by one extraordinary man, and gained by appeals to the passions of the ignorant, led even a community which sneaks our language and knows ho much of us to believe that Irish combinations must alwuys be tenible to Eng land. At the same time, whatever was real in the griev ances of Ireland was exaggerated to excite the repablicai? sympathies, while its fancied woes were made popularly interesting by orations intended only to extort a place, and melodies written to bo admired in London drawing rooms. An Irish party in the States had enough show of reason to obtain the good will of toe people, and enough semblance of power to com mand the courtesy of politicians. At all tunes, however, it has appeared to Europe more powerfu 1 than was really tho esse. Its members, endowed, like so intny of their countrymen, with a certain amount of literary talents, became all over tho union the editors, the reviewers, the magazine writers of extreme democracy. Their attack# on England were continual and violent, and, as violent attacks are always int creating to the subjects of them, these articles were duly transcribed in tho English jour nals and the prefaces of English travellers. They repre sented America to Europe, and even in some dcx -ec to Americans themselves, who, with that terror of tat pub lic peculiar to the Slates, hardly dared to refuse accord ance to what seemed so universal a sentiment. However, famine wasted Ireland, and her peoplo threw themselves by my myriads on the American shores; and not only the people came, but their alleged leaders ? those leaders Whose names were supposed to be a terror to England and a watchword of hope for their downtrodden land. Hoy they were greeted we know. Presidents hastened to do them honor, corporations received them, and they received corporations. The fair sex was con spicuous in enthusiasm. Locks of bair rewarded a fa vored few, hundreds more had to be content with the patriot's autograph. But a great change was soon to take place. The exiles spoke, wrote, displayed their tolly and malevolence, were detected, disgraced, and forgotten. Two millions of Irish stood on American ground. They were titrcng uiuugh to influence every net of tho Union, and by an abuse of the clLzeusbip ? which is, perhaps, too readily granted? they soon made their povcr felt. Fducated Americans pay that their power has not been exerted on the side of humanity and liberty. The church of Hi mo has raise i" its views, relying on tho numbers an<l obedience of Its votaries. Slavery has been supported in a manner Utile cot ? intent with the cliaracter of men who speak of having tied from oppression. The party callcil ' Know Nothings" is the result, and thousands who do tot openly join in the exclusive views ot tho native Americans, yet sympathize with the feeling* which have led to 'heir combination. The Nsw Voita Hkuam> some j ears since would ha c been eager to support the Massa ihu^etts Irishmen merely because they were opposed to 1 ngland; now tugfond receives a tribute of approbation ecause those who Imeigh against and threaten her are rut L men. We believe that It is beyond a doubt that the Russian government ba- hod its hopes greatly roused t?y the real t r seeming sympathy of America, and of this I riih ele ment in paiticular. Although the Americans have little commerce with the llaltic, something was expected frotn the possible attempts ol their traders to break the block ade, which might end In some casualty, and lead to in ciea>ed 11 will towards the allies. The Americans might he supposed to argue that, they did not care for our old "jus ffliKusi," to which they had never subscribed, and that Ihey would go where they like. This hope was not unreasonable, yet it haa lieen disappointed. But morr'stravpt it thf wm rktri*hs<l by the I'll- ( 'ear, and tail to be shard in by his mrteitor, thai an actual rising could be rffrctfi in Ireland through th>: medium t>f the emigrant* in America. The scheme, it appears, has been enter tained by *be Rus-ian Cabinet, and endeavors have been made to carry it into execution. The fact shows how inaccurate is the knowledge which even a well-informed and subtle government has of tho state and institutions of this kingdom. From the now convention and its committee the Ciar can hope little, and we believe that even such dislike as exists among Americans towards the present alliance and its acts la fartooweakto produce any practical effects. Putting aside the old again* England, the positive sym pathy for Uusaia rests only on some supposed analogies between her position and their own. Russia is a new country; she is a great one. and will be greater; ahe has nn Immense territory which she is peopling, while popu late n in Western Europe is stationary or actually decreases. She has a decaying State on her south ern boundary, of which she has taken much and wants more. A few year* ago the Americans selzed^a province of their weak neighbor; an alliance of France and Eng land was prr je 'ted. which, if carried out, would have involved the Uuleft in a long and dangerous struggle. The Russian* < ccupied a similar!) si lusted territory; the alliance was completed, is most powerful, and may lost to interfere in the affairs of a trans- Atlantic Turkey. We believe such Mens as these influence a large class of American politicians. but they are obviously too imngin ary to be the cause of more than pamphlets And oration*. Russia may be sure that we have not a Poland at our side, nor an earnest enemy in the great community we have founded.

The tire waa discover e<i in seme stacl.s of fodder in the alley near Garrison avenue, between Orark and Washington streets. The tire soon communicated to the warehouse of Mr. R.

I'ennywitt k Co., belonging to John Gardner, on Washington street, was prevented from taking 8re by great etertlon on the Brt of onr citiiens, and perhaps much is owing to its ing covered with tire proof paint. ThU building stands immediately opposite the large brick block, occupied by Geo. T. Griffith, druggist, button, Griffith k Spring, aaSr hants, and Bennltt* Walton, merchants. Also, It stauds near the large brick block, and on the amc side of the street, occupied by Spring k Clark, law ? ere; Dri. Bum ford k Shumard; Johnson k Harlan, Mer chants; J.

The last named building was in imml nent danger several times, and had the frame s'ore tilrm fre it would have been saved with great difficulty.
