A ruH and interesting report of the proceedings of the free noil Know Nothing National Convention, which commenced its sessions yesterday at Cin cinnati, may be fonnd on the flrst page. The meeting is composed of the bolters from the conven tion held in Philadelphia last snmnier. Oct readers are referred to our despatches under the telegraphic head for the latest news from Washington. The steamship North Star arrived yesterday morning front Havre and Southampton, with one day's later news from Europe, and advices from In dia and China. The intelligence is not important. The steamers Washington and Canada are now folly due, with dates to the 10th inst. Additional returns of the recent State election in Wisconsin indicate the success of Bashford, the re publican candidate for Governor, beyond a donbt. A n important seizure of letters was madeyester day by the special agent of the General Post Office It seems that a portion of the foreign mails brought fttun Havre by the Vanderbilt line of steamers have been regularly handed over to private carriers, who deliver the letters and collect the postage, thus vio lating the United States law, which provides that all ship letters shall only he distributed through the Post Office. An account of the manner in which these frauds were brought to light yesterday l,y Mr. Holbrook, the special agent of the overnracnt, up on the arrival of the North Star, will be found in another column of to-day's paper. Gov. Pease, of Texas, in bis message, has recom mended the Texas legislature to accept the United States Congressional bill appropriating seven and a half millions of dollars in full liquidation of the Texas debt It is fully believed that the Legislature now in session will accept the bill. Private letters received in this city from Texas give assurances to the same effect. In three months after Texas ac ceptsi the bill the $7,500,000 is to be paid out from the 1 mted Mates Treasury, which will go to the Texas bondholders, and must tend to render money more plenty, by taking that sum from the vaults of the government and putting it into circulation. About $2,000,000 of it will be paid to creditors in , and consi<krable sums to others in I ndadclphia and other Southern cities. We translate a very spicy, gossipping letter, writ ten by one of the principal artists of the Rachel troupe to the Paris Figaro, delineating his impressions of uVi*?S ,ta Bocial manner8 and institutions. It is highly amusing,if not instructive. The movements in wheat for some time past have excited considerable interest. Yesterday the re ceipts by the Hudson river roached about <10,000 bushels, of which 00,000 bushels came consigned to H. A. Kelly, Esq., who had previously received large consignments. These facts have led to inoui rics as to who Mr. Kelly is. It is rumored that KelV a as been employed by Mr. Ward, of Bos ton, in making heavy purchases of grain at the West, and is now engaged in receiving and ship ping the uune. Mr. Wurd sends vessels around to him from Boston, which be (ills for Cork and a market, or for Southampton, to wait orders. Mr. Ward, it is said, is the agentof, and acts for, Messrs. Baring Brothers, London; and they, it Is believed act for the English or French government -one or both. If Mr. Kelly'h purchases were all intended tor England they would I* shipped direct. By hav ing the vessels to go to Cork and to Houthampton to await orders, it proves that they have another and ulterior destination. It is believed that they to a great extent are to be sent to France, and par ticularly to French ports on the Mediterranean, and" that some, probably, will go to Constantinople. Korope generally is short of breadstuffs. Germany is short; Italy is short; while France is 8.li(, to abort at least sixteen millions of bushels of wheat and It is supposed th.it England is short of an aver age crop about three million quarters. Hence the move ment of large houses in Europe for the pur chase of grain in the United Htutes. The orders sent out by Baring Brothers, it is supposed, have been divided between Mr. Ward, of Boston, and Messrs. Orinnell, Mintnrn ft Co.,of New York: while the latter have employed their own agents au.i broker* in this and other markets. Mr. Ward ha employed Mr. Kelly. The European dedcicnries iu ivadattjffg, It no other insurmountable ob stacle existed, is of itself sufficient to render a war between England and the United States impossible. The demand for our breadstuff's, con- I sukring the abundance of our supplies, exceeds all tormer precedent. While the consumers in our Jargc ciues and manufacturing districts feel the force and inconvenience of being compelled to use bread baked from Hour varying from (common poor stuff) $y 12 per bbl., up to fancy extra brands at *10 .'0 a $11 25, und pork at $22 50 per bbl our farmers must be vastly benefitted bv this extra ordinary state of things. As the great bulk of our population Is engaged in agriculture, however much non-cultivators may suffer, wc ..appose they should not complain, as the country nl large must greatly (Win in national wealth. It is on the formers, after all, that almo-t everything else has to depend for support. Then let the farmers thrive. The sales of cotton yesterday were confined to atKiut 800 Giles.

The Juchiticos were in possession of Oaxcaca, which tbey hud unsuccessfully attacked during the insurrection. The Isthmus had passed through the wildest scenes of anarchy. Towns were plundered, people robbed, villages sacked, pri soners taken, and four sub-prefects and two alcaldes shot by the attacking parties of either side. A priest named Lopes held chief command of the fort is at Tehuantepec. The travel to the (iolf side of the Isthmus was full of incident. Minatitlan is a poor place, at which a small trade in mahogany is carried on Owing to the lax manner in which the Mexican oflicials do their duty, a call was made for the granting of extra power to the consular agents of the United States Many outrages hod been com mitted on our fellow citizens there. We have received files of Demarara (British Guiana) papers to the 2Sd of October. The General ('omnianding-in-Chief in that part of the West In dies was expected at Demarara front Barbadoea by the mail steamer. A meeting or the Georgetown Town Council was held on the 22d, when Mr. Lyness said that the InspectorGeneral of Police had told him that the Commander-in-Cliief was coming over by the packet from Barbadoea with his stall', and that Colonel Wliitlield wished to know whether there would l>e auy objection to their land ing at the market BtelUng, and coming through the murket bouse, as it was wished to receive the Gene ral with the honors becoming his rank. The Mayor replied that there would be no objection. A very d .nbtful sort of tribute of reppect. The Board of Councilmen assembled last night as usnal, but transacted no business of importance. The whole evening was taken up in the considera tion of stale reports, and the propriety of putting up stoves in the council chambers, by way of guard ing the members against lumbago and other diseases which they might be subjected to from the cold weather. The Board adjourned till Friday evening. The Emigration Commissioners held a meeting yesterday, and adopted an address to the govern ments of Europe, asking their co-operation in pre venting frauds on emigrants by passenger agents and runners. The emigration this year has been 160,060 persons less than last year. The Commis sion is now nearly $60,000 in debt. In the cuse of Wm. H. Canniff against Mayor Wood, Judge Ingrahum, of the Court of Common Pleas, has rendered an elaborate decision, declaring the plaintiff legally appointed Clerk of the Second District Police Court, and entitled to salary due on the 1st of July last. Tbe Cincinnati Free Soil Know .nothing Con. vti.tloii?Very Curious ami Very Signifi cant Proceedings. We giv? a conspicuous place in our columns this morning to our special reporter's account of tbe Free Soil Know Nothing Northern Con vention at Cincinnati, called together by the anti-Blavery seceders from the Philadelphia American platform, including yesterday's pro ceedings of this moBt remarkable assemblage of political scene-shifters. The object of Senator Wilson and the other leaders in this Know Nothing secession move ment was a complete division between the American party, North and South, and tile fusion of the Northern wing with the Seward black republicans upon the Missouri compro mise question. It is therefore somewhat sur prising to learn that Thomas II. Ford one of the most indignant bolters from Philadelphia, the iree soil Lieutenant Governor of Ohio elect, the right-hand man of Salmon P. Chase, has stood up, as the President of this Cincin nati Northern Free Soil American Council, and flatly recommended the union and harmo Dy of tbe American party all over the country, on a notional platform. Bit when this declaration is followed up by a motion from Mr. Dawson, of Iu diuna, to expunge the Philadelphia twelfth section, nud to substitute as the national American doctrine, that slavery is not a na tional hut a sectional issue, and must be settled by the States respectively concerned, our sur prise is lost in admiration and curiosity. What can all this mean ? Have these Phila delphia seceders discovered, in the results of our late New York election, that the restora tion of the Missouri Compromise is a dead humbug ?--that the Seward abolition league is a dead failure ??that the fusion of the North ern Know Nothings w ith it in '56 will involve a crushing defeat? and that, on the other hand, the re-organi/.ation of the American party. North and South, on the broad and general doctrine of non-intervention on slavery, as a starting point, foreshadows a certain success ? Or, what is in the wind? What means this ab sence of Gov. Gardner, of Massachusetts?this unexpected nationality of sentiment on the part of Gov. Johnston, of Pennsylvania?this sudden revolution in tbe mind of Col. I'ord?< this harmonizing union motion of Mr. Daw son?what mean all these symptoms of a whole some rcactioo. if they do not indicate the complete dropping of all further associa tion with the Seward alliance by the Know Nothings of all the North, and their junction with the Order in the South in a com mon American party movement, in both sec tions, for the Presidency ? From the proceed ings before us we can come to no other con clusions than that they are the beginning of a new order of things -that Gen. Wilson's scheme of breaking the American party into ten thousand fragments has recoiled against himself and against Seward and agninst nil concerned, and that our New York election has set tled the business for the Seward Holy Alliance. We await the definite action of this Cincin nati Convention on the various conciliatory propositions before them for the complete na tionalizing ol the American party. The results may not be equal to the auspicious opening of the bail; but as tbe ruling spirits in it appear to be thoroughly imbued with the idcu that the lost mouth or two have vindicated the "sober second thought of the people," we an ticipate the complete defeat of Seward and Wilson iu the game. What wonderful times are these! Tiik Organization or Congress?A New Coalition.?Read our special despatch from Washington on the organization of the House The news from Cincinnati gives a strong color ing of plausibility to this reported coalition between the democrats and the national Know Nothings in the election of the House officers. Should the rumored plan of operations be per fected, we may count upon the election of ex Governor Cobb, of Georgia, as the Speaker. He has filled the ofllcc heretofore, and has given satisfaction; and occupies a very advantageous position as a conservative, Union, bard shell democrat, to begin with. A few days more and we shall kn<*v all about it. Keep cool and trust in Providence. "The Union mw*t and shall be preserved." Give us ?he Speaker and C've us the message". The Ptiml Vmton tfea Auwt ?f All the Great MfdMi e* a?rWaa hiertry. Perhaps ia the history of governments there never before has been exhibited an amount of ignorance, folly and duplicity equal to that shown by the combined American and Euro pean abolitionists in their efforts to overthrow the federal constitution. About twenty years ago they organised a party in this country For many winters and summers?when Hale was a democrat and Seward was a whig?when Van Buren was a planetary star oi a great party, and not at the tail of a drivling comct when Jackson was President and the acknow ledged chief oi the democracy?when Clay was in the vigor of manhood, in the pride of intellect, strong as the embodiment of a gal lant, patriotic and chivalrous host of national men?then it was that the abolitionists were a shunned and a degraded people. They were regarded as the harlots of our political system ?abandoned outlaws?lost to every sense of patriotism, to every just conception of duty, to every obligation of faith, to every instinct of justice, and to every compunction of con science. During the present season this party culminated in the republican league, in the ac tive service of undermining the constitution, &Dd under the immediate leadership of William 11. Seward, the prelate ol our* political dispen sation. These twenty years of peaoeful and success ful industry, which have served to raise up into eometbing like formidable proportions this abolition party looking to the dismemberment of the Union, have been years of marvellous progress in science and discovery by the American people. As if anticipating the growth of a formidable and daring band of traitors bent on the destruction of the repub lic, Providence, it would seem, raised up in our midst vast works of impregnable defence and fortification. Amongst these, and most prominent, are the electric telegraphs, the railways, internal and external commerce?the very physical configu ration of the country, its long Hue of sea coast, its great lakes, the course aud volume of its rivers, from North to South?all internetted by the discoveries of science and the hand of in dustry. Within that time the plain of the lakes has been rescued from the savage and studded with magnificent cities ; the valley of the Mis sissippi has been transformed into a garden of production, and teems with the conquests of man and the comforts of home. California and Texas have been added to the Union, ex tending our commerce to the centre of the Gulf of Mexico, and spreading it over the Pacific Ocean. All our inland waters have been co vered by our messengers of trade ; the great oceans have been reduced to a few days navi gation ; Europe has been brought nearer to us than was Lake Michigan ; population and wealth have everywhere increased ; prosperity is everywhere apparent; contentment is the lot ot all. In the midst of these wonderful conquests, and forenost in Its service to man and in its effects upon the institutions of the country, is the electric telegraph. It is the nervous sys tem of the republic, having its origin in and giving action to its intellectual system. It is the language of politics, economising mind as much as commerce and trade. It is the great equalizer of the value of products, by the ra pidity in which it communicates the knowledge of supplies and the existence of demands. It is the representation of money, the medium of exchange; the organ of social and political unity. It is the detector of crime, the adjunct of the police, the friend of order, and in the very nature of its business, by its extension over all the Slates, by its strictly national of fice, the enemy ot every species of disloyalty to the federal system. Amongst all the inven tions of modern times the electric telegraph may be said to stand foremost as the represen tative of the existing order of things, it do rives its position and its profits from the busi ness of the States. It speaks for the Union; it is not even formed by State links ; it has no strictly local office any more than it has a local language. The recent discoveries in this branch of science to which we have called public atten tion, are another step from infancy to manhood, by which facility and accuracy of utterance have been greatly increased and improved. The time is soon coming in the progress ot this great modern invention, when newspapers will contain little else besides the reports furnished from ail parts oi the world by the electric tele graph. It will thus by degrees extend its power, and become the great organ of thought and communication, if we may so speak, for the whole people, llad there been some means of doubling by a single decree the specie of the world, its effect npon that article as a mo. dium of trade would not have been greater than has been the operations of the telegraph upon commerce and exchange. It is not too much to say that its increased facilities afforded to trade are equal to those afforded bclorc its existence by all the gold and silver in the world. As a political instrument it is destined to lie scarcely less effective. It is the advancing power of science drawing our whole country and the world into closer social and political intimacy. There is an old maxim, " Absent, always wrong." There will be no absence? nobody will be from home. It will bring men together, make them acquainted, soften their asperities, strengthen the comities of life, re move prejudices, enlighten the understanding, ripen friendship and perpetuate our political union. It will consolidate the public judgment* by laying before all unerring testimony con cerning the motives of the several tacts. We live in an age of extremes. M?n are no longer satisfied with that happy medium which is sure to promote the highest states of order and prosperity. Wo arc distinguished for great merits and great faults?great wisdom and great folly?great good and great evil. The latter ingredient is perhaps more perfectly re presented in American politics than in any other country on the globe. It is natural that it should be so?a necessary consequence of our civil polity, under which ail are orators, oracles, counsellors aud governors, fliis free cove nant of our system has let l??e upon society an army of political quacks, whoso nostrums, of course, will cure all diseases. Like pre tenders in the profession, and everywhere else, they are the special friends of humanity ? oraclea of reform?moral and political disin fectants? thorough students of th"ir own works ? noisy alarmists, who cry " fire." but never soil their bands in extinguishing it. Perhaps they are useful members of society. Provi dence sometimes conceals blessing* beneath strange disguises. It is not yet > lear that po- i litica? clergy men may not ev< n do ?(.rro- irood Ccrfir tow? beiHiiis upon their Liivf* iu.u- 1 Tfce lailkh War I Twa CabkMta it WmM?Hiii Mil ijf ??, All the world knows, or ought to know, that the administration of Mr. Pierce ha? beeu. and continues to be, blest with two CablaeSs a re gular Cabinet and a Kitchen Cabinet and that William L. .Marcy is at the bead af the one, that Caleb Cushing is the chief of the other, and that the casting vote between th ? Premier and the Kitchen is subject to the e?i>ricee and vacillations of the President, who- official p? sition makes him supreme OTer both tbe action of the premier and tbe counsels of th' Kitchen. It is also well known that the? two Cabinets are as hostile to each other aa the watch-dog and the wolf- that tbe regular' i binet is indolently pacific and conciliatory, while the Kitchen is as full of the tn- fllibu* tering spirit as General William Walker t?*

Marcy, in brief, is an " old fogy." wt?d?* *'ml? iDg is a young thunderbolt of '? manifest d< - tiny." This brings us to tbe upshot of the existing paper war between John Bull and Broth', Jonathan. It has happened (a mere nccid< n that in reference to this Cramplon enlisting business, the ('resident has sided w th the K i chcn; and so Cushing, instead of Marcy, h spoken for the admiuistratiou that's all. Th | Kitchen has been faster than the i'r< nil>r h has got ahead of him, secured the ear of th President, and on the spur of the mount he has given this subject over to Cashing, und requested Marcy to keep quiet till his official interposition should be requir cd. The position of Marcy, in some re jects, resembles that of Mr. Webster in the Tyler Cabinet. Mr. Webster gave dignity and stability to tbe Tyler administration, and he remained in it accordingly till be thought he could safely retire. So with Marcy, to some extent, in this administration. True, he is not the great man that Webster was; but still he is the conservative main pillar of Mr. Pierce's mixed free Boil and secession Cabinet con mission, such as it is. Wc shall not deny that Marcy is attached to his eight thousand a year. He is the author of that party maxim that "to the victors belong the spoils," but still, we dare say that it has required a large exercise, on his part, of patriotism, forbear ance, resignation and perseverance to keep his post under the constant humiliations and an noyancesto which he has been subjected from Cushing, Forney and the Kitchen Cabinet. He has probably cherished a malicious plea sure in combatting and thwarting their schemes to oust him, aud take the filibustering x\hip-hand of the government for the succes sion. It has been a continuous battle between the doctrines of "old fogyism" aud "Young America"?between the regular and the Kitchen Cabinet?between Marcy and Cush ing, lor the next Presidency. All the old peace men, "old fogies" and old ladies in the country have a high respect for the quiet, pacific, respectable and highly con ciliatory diplomatic character and principles of Marcy?all the "manifest destiny" democ racy, the Cuba democracy?the war democra cy of the Young American type?are dis gusted with Marcy and side with Cashing and Forney. And they have kept the old Premier on the defensive from the first incep tion of the Ostend Presidential plot dowa to this day. The mission of Soul? is a striking illustration of the conflict of jurisdiction be tween the official and tbe Kitchen Cabinet. The instructions from Marcy were official; butSoul? had other instructions from "the power bcli'nd the throne" in the Kitchen, which he doubtless thought the President would stick to if brought to the scratch; and wo Mr. Sould accepted his private suggestions, rather than his public in structions for his guidance, his own inclinations lying exactly in the war channel. Can anybody suppose that that Aix-la-Chapelle-Ostcnd mani festo was a blind venture, resting upon chance for the support of the administration ? No; it was the Kitchen Cabinet programme, which was to turn Marcy out and give "Young Ame rica" the helm. But the President failed to stick; and the forthcoming revelations of Mr. Sould will probably tell the rest of the story. This British enlistment imbroglio is a chip of the same block. The warlike instructions of Cushing are the result of a violent effort of the Kitchen to supplant the sleepy foreign po licy of Marcy. The President has been fasci nated with the temptations of a little war capi tal against John Bull. Cushing has instilled it into his head while Marcy was asleep; Foruey has seconded the motion, and a nice breeze is the consequence. But there will be no war. Mar cy is roused?he is indignant?he has doubtless had a round talk with Mr. Pierce, and given Cushing a piece of his mind about these saucy letters of his, justly deserved, but not alto gether expedient in a Wall street view of the subject. Mark, too, our prediction?Cushing will write no more letters on the subject. Marcy will take hold, has taken hold, has wuked up, and will drive the Kitchen Cabinet down stairs again. He will patch up a peace, ?a diplomatic compromise ; and if Crampton has to go, he will perhaps dine with him on the eve of bis departure, to show that there is nothing in it. Cushing, having made some capital at home, and a considerable noise abroad, will still be available, upon a pinch, for the second place on tbe ticket of the Cincinnati Convention, and he may be satisfied?Marcy having restored peace, retains the affections of the old fogies, and he may be satisfied; Mr. Pierce will be satisfied; John Bull, recovering from his fright, will be satisfied ; and Wall street will be satis fied. Only wait for the xoicc of Marcy in the President's message. Irish Aids and ret Movements.?When the British press tremblingly announced that a formidable Irish expedition was fitting out in this country with a view of wresting from Knglnnd her Celtic dependance, we thought, and every one thought, there was not a shadow of foundation for such a grievous fright on the part of our trans-Atlantic coun tries: but recbiit aud simultaneous movements of the Irish all over the country?their forma tion into secret societies?the action of the clcrpj the persistence of the great masses even in opposition to their spiritual advisors ? indicate a most extraordinary state of thiegs. We yesterday noticed the proceedings of the Irish in Nexxark. New Jersey, in this direction, Mid Ibc significant fa. t that the Catholic clergy hod entered a most solemn denunciation again-t the movement. Perhaps it has been observed that recently, in the chief councils of the Ca tholic institution- of this country, great pxirn have been taken to inculcate the most loyal o'edlence to the civil authorities. It is un. ?-ij uni uiuvf.vaiis ka\? n | Matly taken paiax MtniiTtlj to avow that, bj virtnv of Um faith ud precepts of the Catholic church. Mi people owe (tell allegiance to that laetltutioa. Thia allegation of tho Know No things. by which they hare, to a great extent, ivpew. krd the Catholic population in this t-ewntry a* food eitlxena, way have caoned a I t owntrrvailing *>T?wnl oa the part of the Catholic* Ow Kick mom I com-epoodent gives ' a view of their action ia Virginia. The clergy there are, too, ? the alert; they de nounce the secrecy of the orgaaitatiun?they enjoin fealty lo the laws aad constitution of the eoantry?they preach the obligations of citiaraship aa tho highest duties, and the ne cessity of open council aa the only honest way 1 to discharge that doty. I Sow. we regard the extraordinary movement as having, la traih. a double origin It la natural enough that the Irish Catholics should feeI a little sore apon the sweooaa of the Know Nothings. It ia the'r prvmcriptioa their proa ' criptiaa, too. by a power a hick is secreted?aad It must ha confessed that it Is to soaae extent Um roital of the spirit of the coatrovrrsy be tween Kaglaad aad Irtlaad. It ia Protestant i-m against CatholM-isur awd that, after all. U one of the great causes of the hostility which exiids ia this country agniaat foreigner*. The Irish feel this, have long felt It: and they are a people who must art what they feel. Not all the pritrt* ia the world eaa prevent their ac tion. They auy repeat aad confess; hut they will not he denied the incomparable right of actios. Beside* thia, their "spiritual advisers" have assured them that their Irvt duty is to their adopted country- their first obligations those of a civil character. Now. this it a license to form, over all the 8laics, a groat party with oii'-ness of purpose, oneness of counsel and oneness of act loo. The Irish are aiso -they know that they have -uftkient autaber* per ftctly united, to glvs them the holaare of power. Th< n the alarm of the London prew. their ill concealed, but imdly expressed tear, their trepidation, as evinced in sending their fleet to our shores, would seem to convey an idea that the Irish In America hare determin td to combine aud aid their brethren on the other side of the water. Of course this would he great folly ; and as our Irish friends are not in the habit of investing in that kiad of stock, the explanation of the ???rent'-nt re turns?it is to control the balance of power in American politics.
