Muliuny, upon taking the chair, made a few peitinent rental ka, alluding, among other things, to a recent, celebration in Montreal, of the taking of Sc bastopol. in which a bear, muzzled, and with broken leg, was displayed in a window. Ihe Doctor hoped that the liuesiun bear might yet overcome the English lion. (Ap plause.) lie introduced Captain Jackson, of Boston. Captain Jackson addressed the meeting at some length, speaking with much confidence of the attainment of Irish national liberty. He was warmly applauded throughout. Speeches were also made by Messrs. O'Uellly, Materson and Johnston. The meeting was a large and enthusiastic one. At Its close those who did not already belong were invited to join the ?'Ithth Emigrant Aid Association."

Our readers will recollect that early in the present year a good ileal of 1'um was made about the preecnce of three or four Russian officers in this city, whose object was said to be the fitting out of privateers in our ports to wage war on Kngliah and French commerce. It turned out, on investigation, that the mission of these gentle men was purely scientific, and the exoitement caused by the rumor died of course a natural death. Circumstances which subsequently led to legal pro ceedings on the part of our government against the agents of another 1'ower, naturally ox sited a desire on the part of the latter >o show that thoy were not a',one culpable ; and accordingly efforts were made to revive thoae rum it* of attempts to violate our laws by emissaries of the Cxur. The first fact which gate a color to these accusations, was tho following statement, which appeared in the it twain of the lSlh of October :? Deputy I'nited Mates Marshal Horton yesterday seise I the berk Maury, on suspicion that s' e was engage I in the set vice of Kuasia. arid oaring on board articled cou 11 a band of war. Cannon, powder, trails and muskets were toond on board. Of course the ship was not per mitted to pru ned on her voyage. On the following day we published tho annexed edito rial remarks in reference to this case, as well as to that of Mr. Thomp on, who was stated to have gone to Washing ton to complete his engagements with the Russian Minister us Chief Engineer of the Russian navy :? UDll NEUTRALITY LAWS?A RUSSIAN CASK OR TtVO-t Tllh BRITISH VERSUS THE RUSSIAN MINISTER. [From the New York Herald, Oct. !!>-] Mr. Crampton, the British Minister at Washington, has been found guilty of violating < ur neutrality laws in the mutter of recruiting soldiers in the Unlteu states for the service ol the allies against Russia. It Is reported that our Cabinet have, Ihere'ore. instructed Mr. Buchanan, our Minister at London, to demand the recall of Mr Crampton and oertain of lier Majesty's Consuls impll cuted in the same unlawful business. Now, we have u Russian case or two in the same category. A corres pondent of one of our morning cotemporarlcs puts the Inflowing case in reference to the anticipated withdrawal of Mr. Crampton:? I wish to koow what steps have keen taken, or arc to lie taken, In liuic the Russian Mtnlsler withdrawn. The while country has been publicly and repeatedly informed, in a boaetlul, triumphant manner, tbat James 0. Thompson, the propl ielor nl the machine works on Quay street, Allotnv, ha been of.rred the situation o'' Chief Engineer In the itu -siao navy. We have It proclaimed that his salary is to be SU.OOO a jiar, together wi'h a fres dwelling house; ami it is openly n vowed tli"? Mr Ihi-mson bad lions to Washington to complete the engugi msnt with Uie litis-inn Minister. On Wcdi eciiay, it appcurs. the United States Boputy MaisJiiil, Horton, of this port, : ei/ed the ship llaury, >u suspicion that she was engaged In the service of Russia, aim bust on board articles contraband of war?cannon muskets, powder, ball-.

What Bays the Premier "t In the sumo paper appeared the f Mowing statement ot the fucis connected with the bark Maury, as gleaned by our reporter:? ALLEf.KII VIOLATION OF THE NECTRAL1TV LAWS. [From tho Herald ?f October 19.] Ah it was announced iiithe Hebald of yesterday that the hark Maury bad been ici/.ed by the Deputy United Slate.' Marshal, Mr. llorton, on suspicion of being en gos< d in the service of Rubs la, one of our rei'Orters v isit ed tho \ essel frr the purpose of accortaining, if possible her true character and designs. There were soveral re ports in ciiculaMon about her, one of which was that she had been fit ted up for piivaleering, and that she would be employed in intercepting the Cunard steamers on their passage to and from this country. The charges upon which the legal proceedings against her were instituted were made, it is understood, by the British Consul at this port, or some person acting under his authority. The affair, from the prominence which baa thus been given to it assumed a very serious aspect, and it was necessary, therefore, that the public should have the facts, circum stances and particulars, upon which those charges were based, laid before them. This was particularly desirable In view of the fact that one of the belligerent powers on tho other side of the Atlantic has already, as proved in our courts, v minted ?ur neutrality laws, and that one of her highest authorities was engaged in directing the enlist ment of recruits for the war in the Crimea. Desirable as it is, ui.der these circumstances, that the pre?ent alleged \i'dati< n of our laws should be made known to the public we pre. ent the following report of the mutter, in the hope that it inuv had vo a suiisluctory solution of tho mystery in which the hark Manry appeared to be enveloped, and that It may'serve to c iitn the apprehensions that have bocn entertained as to the designs of her owners. As soon as possiMe alter the chaiges or iuspleiona of the rhoracter ol the vessel were made known to the Uni te <1 States District Attorney, Mr. McKeon, he presented them to the court, setting them forth in detail in the re <|itlred legal form. This paper, after sta'ing the name of the vessel, and wtnt she pre ended to bo. went onto laiticulrrire. with the usual formality of a legal docu n ent, in the following manner:?

Tae piincipkl object of my vi'lt to Mr. Uiampton was to as rertaiu whether J could safety en.hark in this ente prise, I was ?toppu g at Millard's Hotel, sud in reply to my note, I iccelvesl the note marked A. After the itceipt of this note I celled on Mr. Cramptou. at his residence: It was on Pun'iey ranrulrg when I call.si; I saw Mr. Uiampton: be said in *ubntnn?e:?" Your letters of introduction assure me that I umv have full ?nf! ilence iu you; I Lave le t snftlelent authority yet fti m 'he lu ii",e government with regard to tho uei'ter, but I t x| c? t early authority from l-onl IT.melon I have already motived a letter from l.crd Clarendon, in quiiii g how many mm might be enlisted in 1hi* country for PiItlsh-elvice, mid what the 1 uitcd States govern ment wiulil think of nich ?n attempt. I can tell you this, tha* it rim embark it this matter you can mike a gn at deal of money : ir proei ring of men for the English if ivire should be undeitaken it will be very advan'age ou- to you ; but I expect a letter I run lord Clarendf n by the next steamer, which may tie expee'ed in eight or ten days, giving ine frill explanations and Instrne.Lms limr ihe matter is to be conducted." In this conver-ation ho bad l elbtniCfi to enlistments in this country for tue Cri mean war. He statt . tliat he had answered l,ord Ciaren don's first letter, iu:d 'hat the letter ho expected Was in reply to liis answer. He did not ?ta*e the rontent* ol hi* Q'wpr in 2v1(J Clarendon's Jotter He tie n said, "I l.avi-t* .filing \$ '.t'l Jjl* U when I ft&WO I mil Clarendon's letTer T will wiite to yau.'' 1 leturned to 1 Mludclf li a, and should have thought ndhioginnrc of Ihe subject, hut about the 6th of Uelu uary, 18.15, I re loceived n loiter trom Mr. t rampt.m, through the Poet office, wbi.'h letter 1. hereto annexoj marked B. I sent him n telegisphic despatch that 1 *?? too much engaged to rnire to M*s-hington now, hut that T would call upon htm at Washington a? soon a - my <iui> would permit It. ttf his second vi, it, he says ? I went srme days st'erwsri's. say three or four days, to W'sshirgti n, and saw Mr. (i tmpton st hi* piivato i re-idjaicc, he was l?itici>o-ed: I tub! bin I bad received hi* letter, and desi.ed to know what Ilia I to do; M-, Crnmpton rerfied, "I have received t letter from lord Clareod' n which cousin* 'he "Ig'.eiJKpt Utirt the British govirnn.ent lias mane ahkngf-ments (o Astal*'?h deivots at s*me place in Oiniula, on the frontier of the 1 ulted Malts, in order to receive the ineu who may lie procured in 'he United (Hates.

' I informed Mr. Crarapton that i had incurred ex|?nre* already by coming twice to Weshiiigtiin and that I would have to wade more time until the messenger r- turned, and that I would htvo to neglect my busfue-s; I therefore requested him to refund to me ti e expenses alicady incurred l>y me. Mr. Cramp ton replied, "I havea' present no money st iny cllsp. ? il. am' have noautliorlty to give you any. but I am eertiiu yi u will be paid not only for your services, bnt that your expenses will be rei*id to you, I asked Mr. Crumiton what Wss fo be done" How is the matter to he conducted .' He sail, "aa far as I kruw theie I* a law In the 1'ni'ed States fi ihidding the mUsling of soldiers within the ienltory of the Unite I Stater?it is, however, not difficult to evade this law. b> eause who can prevent you from sending laborers te Canada, but we must take care to do this To such a wnf that it shsll not appear in detianco of the govi-rnnsent My idea Is further, that if you have taeuiy-five or thirty men together, that either yonr?elf or some other ci-nti lential person should take them direct by railroad to Montreal, where, I think, a depot may l.a eie-led." I tbrv s*ked him. 'when do yi u think thl, ma i-r whi . . o lusncr-l" Mr. ( inmptnn :.l "f c-,nn- ? -ey p-' <- .

In the meantime you nay ealfnn our Consul, Mr. Matthew, m Philadelphia, and be (Mr. W.) will probably be able to give you the neoestary ine'ruutlon." It is somewhat novel in the history ot diplotnaey, for a foreign representative to be detected in the overt act of advising another aa to tbe means by which be might be enabled to violate with impunity the laws of the country to which he is accredited. And yet, if we are to believe this witness, such was the position in which the British Mini <tcr placed himself. The covcrsatinn with regard to the procuring men wan finished, hut I reverted agsi" to the law bearingupon the subject. I atked him "how am I backed in ca?eachtrga is mane against me? I have a wile and children," Mr. Crampton replied, " first that tlie'law was exceedingly lax?and secondly, that it anything should happen, the British government would n >t allow any one te suffer who had been engaged in assisting them in tarnishing' tbe men." I replied that " the popular voice is against this matter;" btr. Mr. Crampton said "never mind about; this popular voice: if a hon-e in Liverpool bill, thtV whole United Stales tremnles.' After Mr. Crampton hart given me such assurances, and had used the expression ' I give you my word as s gentleman that nothing un pleasant shall happen to yon." I then made up my mind to act for the British government. Before I left, Mr. Crampton assured me that he would sen! a man to my b< u"0 in Philadelphia, vho would make such arrange ments with mess would enable me to procure men, and send them to their deadest ion. It is not necessary for ns to pnrsue the details of thi< case further. Oar readers have been made sufficiently tamiliar with them by the public journals. With regard to the enlh tment scheme itself, the Eng lish government ouly abandoned it when it found that its agents were in tb" grasp of tlie law and that it could no longer be carried on without seriously endangering the pacific relations of the two countries. It was a con cession to necessity, for whir h the people of this country owe it but little acknowledgement. Tbe punishment in flicted on the parties who wore Induced to become its In. struments, will bllectually prevent any further attempts ofthlssort. It is uo pro >f of the spirit of our administra tion that the penalty of the offence should have been suf fered to full solely on the subordinate agents in the transactfon.
