THE NEW YORK HERALD. WHOLE NO. 7188. SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 4, 1856. PRICE TWO CENTS DREADFUL DESTITUTION AT THE CAPE DE VERDS. Tins Popnlatton Pcrtt-hlog by Tbooaands. /Appeal to the People of the United States. AN EFFORT TO BE MADE IN THE CAUSE OF HUMANITY, Ai'i. A. ?? Ac. TO TUX ED170K OK 1JTK IIKBALIU Wanhcoton, April 2ft, 1856. I eoc'oao you the following n:ip from the Noiumal In tcWgmcer, of tbi date, and reqtedt you to iusert it. My object in asklug of you thin favor U to make another ap peal to the generous and Dtuevoltnt of our land in bahalf of the ntrrviug people of Mm Cape de Vorda, ere they 3hall <ie by accumulated thousands with all tne horrors of starvation:-* UmTUICTaTKiShIP jAMtoTOWN, ) Poirr PbaTA, < apb VKkpe, March 8, 1866. f I have spoken in torn er fvterg ot the starving condition of th'"i? idea 'ers. Tbe searct'j of -ain and consequent lhortiie.ti cf the crops for the last three years, hare pro duced a famine cf which from five to six r.houianl out of a poptiiA'on of one honored and twenty toomand have already died. Of the twelve or thirteen islands the famine ba.i thus far been oo> fined chiefly to St Antonio, St. Nicholas, St. Vincent, an.t Sal. Three th usand per sons have come lrom the neigh noring islands to this (St. Jago), which is the m<st productive The Governor, a most excellent and eneigct'o man. is doing everything lu his power tor these mieerne'e people. He sends smau ves-ele, as he can raise the means to do so. to the coast of Afiiea for grain, wnich b?* distributes wltn the strict est eeonetry to the destitute. He has visited our ship several Mnios, and as he sjunks French extremely well, it baa tailed to my lot to be 'he fnte-preter He came to day, In company with the Bishop, to thank the Com mixture tor bis kindness in having gone, ten days ago, to the island of Brava to bring the Bishop, whose presence here aH President of the Council he strongly desired, in order to allay discontent, and to satisfy the people with the measures that he has ltsen obliged to pursue in the prevent en ergency. He t*lie me that whatever money he can eol'ect he seeds to the coast of Africa and eise whete for grain, which he distributee in such a way as to avoid monopoly. He has nearly exhausted his reeovrres He thinks hat he will be able to keep star vation in cbeek until .luly, alter which, unless provisions are sent from Europe and America, twenty thousand per sons, at the least calculation wdl starve to death be tween then and December; and he crop In December wtU depend upon the rain in the meantime. The islanders, he nays, who have been looking to him for bread, do not know, as he does the terrible calamity that awaits them. In 1822 thirty or forty vessels e?me frttn the Untied States with provisions. With half that amount now the Governor r.euld, he says, prsvent all starvation. He has made a hid statement ot the subject to ms own government, and will draw up anotner which the Cim modere will forward to the government at Washington. Moreover, on our suggestion, the Bishop wil' add rets a caounnnicaftea to Archbishop Hughes, as also to the ArekbtshoMin I/ondon and Paris. 8c diet rowing is the condition of these poor people, as plctared to me to-day by the Governor, tnat under the feelings that his narrative has awakened I devote my letter to this subject. It is not probable that the com munications ot the Governor and Bishop will be ready for theZeno on Monday mora log. They may not, there t'oie, reach the United States untti weeks after this does; otherwise I should not cars to anticipate them. These islatds can be of Utile If any advantage to Portugal. There are more people hue than can live, or than do liveou tbe produce of the soil. They had, therefore, bet ter abandon some, if not all, of the Islands, shippiog^the inhabitants to E'en in this island, the la gest and best, the water hat almost given out; so that, eboeld tte drought cnn'icue, onr squadron will not be able to water here. Where provisions and money were ?est years ago from the United States to Madeira the doaors complained, and justly, of the disposition made of them by tbe authori'ie*. A similar misappropriation cf ebaritv would be avoided in the present instance by making Mr. Monte, our Consul bero, the ronslgnee to re ceive the provisions, which would thus be sure to reach their profer destination, ae ther would then be turned over to tbe Governor, who would direct and supervise the distilbutton, ae he now dreg that ef all the provisions that be imports. Tbe revenues of the islands be de voter to the purchase of provisions, instead of sendiog the rt to tbe homegoverrmsnt. His own saltry ($3,000) he has not touehed during the two and a half years of hu governorship, though he is, as Mr. Morse tells us. very poor, dressing very plainly and living with great frssnUty. The crnmbs that fall from the wealthy tables of Philadelphia and New York would more than fatten these 120,000 islanders. You are aware that 1 was at the islands San Antonio anc Baa Vicente, of the Cape de Verds, as late as the 29th Cobber, and (as I published on arrival home) did, as I WW charged by Commodore Crabhe, communicate the frightful facts to the public, as your columns and repub HcsLion will fully testify (this intelligence being copied by telegraph and type throughout the land.) But un fortunately for my appeal, as then made?it being at a time when most unusual aad long eontln nei dratts on the public benevolence and cha rities had been made for the intense sufferers of Nor tel and Portsmouth? oo sadly scourged?and likewise tb? fact thst the 1st of December is the time when the public charities are invoked throughout the land to re iiere diet rem- visible in all our cities, at the commence mmt of our long, and as it has proved, unusually severe winter?our own poor needed our aid; and hence it was b<1 a time when an appeal from a foreign land oould be mtde effective. But 'ortunately for the suflerers on those is bads, 1 did nvt wait to get home before 1 had set ma cttaery in moti on, which I am now rejoijed to say did perforin much in the way of Immediate relief; for on pass ing the Car sries, Madeira aud Lisbon, I dropped oopies of tkc correspondence and iacts, with what excellent results tie correspondence lately isceived and now published will show. All honor be to those who ibted so promptly is tbe emergency. But I regret to have it to say, that I prepared also a oopy aad sent it with all the facts, to the London lima, on the l*th aad 11th of November, but they neither notice my facte nor appeal to the British public, and even stu diously omitted all reference to the "famine" In their news items, so far ae I could discover, up to my leaving Eng land, on tbe 16th cf that month It would probably, have lent corn from England, as gift! and merchandize, aad this might have enhanced tbe then rising prices at tlelr Corn Exchange. My object In asking you to repub lish is to make another appeal to our generous people. Firing is upon as with all its blessings?our graaarir.r are full to overflowing. I'eace has, with other causes, lowered the price e>l grain, and 1'rovidence pro misee us an abundant harvest in the autumn. Let us, then, ae a thank offering, at this season, when all is so batter tr* to us as a people, rush to the aid of tbe starv ing and famishing islanders at the Cape de Verds, who hold out their attenuated hands to the West for succor. The ten'.imooy now sent you. trom the columns of the JnlfUigcncrr, is from an eye witness, and the outpouring of tbe heart ot the fleet surgeon ef the American squad ron, Dr. Clywer, shows that the famine is continu ing, and that the crisis at hanu is so dreadful in its (eon aequecees tliat the noble Governor does not let the truth he known to his already dying people, for fear of more terri ble consequences. But there is yei time for us, as a people, to do aotuething?aye, much?for these poor i.tlsudere; and 1 believe that tbe appeal will be heard, and that out of our abundance stores grain and flour and bread will be Bent, aad that quickly: and as I oaa now attempt to do that which, from the paiafulness of my position as a "dropped officer," I could not do in December last, I tleeire ti offer my mite to the general contribution, and to tender one hundred bushels of corn t > the first ship that will take it to the islands; and request my firiend, Mr. Wolfe, 1'resident cf the New York Corn Exchange, to supply it. well put up fur shipping, aad to ship it (if a vessel" offers) to Porto Grande Isle, St. Vincent, care of Antonio Joequlm Martens. United States Vice Consul, for public distribution on the Island of San Antonio, together ?with any other contributions which may offer. (On my own contribution 1 will pay the freight, and trnst others will do I he same?for to be effective It must arrive at the point of wed.) And 1 further offer, in this emergency, to take the ouminatid of any substantial ves sel that may be loaded with breadstuffs ior distribution at fhe Cape de Venls, and at my own charge to And the rarans ot officering, manning, and navigating this vsssel of mercy to the Cape de Veros and beck, and to sail the ?s'iwt such vessel can be loaded. I trust this appeal will be heard?that it will be noticed by the press of the country, that our New York merchants and citizens generally throughout the country will sustain my call; and that ai! the officials of the Portuguese goveramen*. will see In the notion of their own government, as shown "by our MinUter at Lisbon, that they should take asttee metes to aid me in sending further relict to their fauAsh ing fellow subjects. The publie will excuse the prominent part I am obliged to tele in this movemeut, but Providence has imposed ft upon m# as a sacred duty, which I do not realize that I Khali havs discharged unless there be landed hundreds of tons o breadstuffs on these desolate islands by the 1st of July next.

Clymer, who, with myself, investigated these facts in Ootober last, has so feelingly set forth the same, and even a'worse condition of things, down to the 8th of March last, and confirms our opinion, as then expressed, that the crisis would be from July to December ot 1850, I feel called upon to make one moie effort, and I hope it will be effective, to send the most ample reliet in food to these starving islanders. Should you and tbe public desire it. I will reler to my notes, and give you in a future article, briefly, the causes vhich have brought a whole people (I speak of ths inhabitants of Sen Artocio, San Nicolas San Vicente and Sal) to the very brink of the grave, whidh yawns to receive their famished corpBt s.

The Countess de Neuilly having several times expressed a desire to visit the Count de Chaoilmd, but being prevented by the state of her health, the Count an ticipated the intention of his august aunt, and visited her at Nervi on the tf h Inst.

H? was emphatlbaily a gentleman?a man without re proach; end it is that as much ss his eloquence ?it is that quality of 1 is beicg a gentleman?a man always respect ful and regardful of the feeling* of ethers, that has endear-' rd him ta the generation to which be belonged and those he has left behind him to mon-n his lose. He was a pac liot, and at the time he commented the studies of hta profession the oountiy woe assailed on its Atlontie coast and northwestern border bf a powerful f.*, who I threatened, in the tall oonfidcuee that tney could make good their threats, to divide thiol Union by means of tbe occupation ot a superior military force. When thev I were making their preparations to cut off New Orleans frcm our oonlederacy, Ogden Hoffman quitted his pro fession, end volunteered in the naval service of his oountry. His .career is known, during that war and the Algenne war, by the testimony of our brightest nuvai hero, Stephen Decatur, who became most sinoerely at-ached to him. After these wars were ended he resumed the pursuit of his profession and was admitted to the bar. lie studied in the office of one of our most eminent ju rists, Jocge Duer, theu practioiog In Orange connty. He coutluuso the practice ot the law there UU having ac quired a reputation extending beyond the limits ol the county, hs came to this city, and since that time his tri umphs and the many noble qualities by which he was 1 distinguished have became lam 111 or to you all. In ibe I xerclse of his profession he exhibited those high troiti ' mat commanded the attention of the court as well as the I jury. Judge Ewrer next addressed the meeting, and in a voice which was half suppressed with emotioa, spoke W.0uld ask leaTe to P*y ? brier and feeble tribute, but a sincere and heartfelt one, to the memory of our departed friend. An inUma cy of nearly fifty years, amoun.iog almost to a fraternity between us not only justifies me, but calls upon me to express those feelings wiih which my heart Is now oppressed. I knew Mr. Hoffman in boyhood?a bold, aspiring boy, who, when his country was tn arms gave up the prospeots so bright before him, and which were preoented by .he career ot his own fataer at the bar. and joined tbe navy that he might be one of the pro tectors ot our institutions. He was the cherished and favored aid of Commodore Decatur; and i know, lrom what 1 beard bis illustrions commander say. that if he had continued in the navy, his oareer would have been as bright as that of any officer in the servioe. When peaoe was restored he returned to the prectloo of the law. It haw been stated that he commenced his career in Orazure ?222ft aLdlliare via..a, liTin? in tuts court Who oould testify to the brilliancy of that career before he j?me to this city, i believe his first appearance In the W*K aa a representative from that county in 1827; 1 believe, becauee I had the honor myself to be an at\Md 1 ?*n ^r witness not only to the brilliancy or hfs eloquenes, but the influence he pos sessed over older minds than his own, from the cogacitv [ and wisdom of his judgment. Ycung as he wssThe was looked up to by such men as Klisha Williams, and others 1 In the lcgislatuie at that period, not merely cn account of the sauvity of his manners, or his high character for honor, but for his discrimination in public affairs, which secured to him that good opinion whijh frequently takes a .org life to attain. There are other circumstances in which I had ocjosion to observe the pejulisr detiiacy of his mind. It woe In that year that the Rupert >r Court of this city was organized. There were particular reasons why he should feel a strong desire in the success of that measure, for his own honored father bad been talked of as one or the judges. A knowledge of that fact operated upon his mind, and made him not only reluctant but ab olutely determined him to have nothing whatever to do with the success o( ibat bill. All this passed under mv own observation. Therefore, when I say Mr. Hoffman was endowed wltn those qualities whieli mode bim a brilliant man, I can aI?o (fay tout he possessed tho-e finer traits cf character that arefrequently passed over in our estimation of a man The world, in giving Its admiration to one great quality, is very apt to deny the existence of others. 1 his was so in the case of the famous John I'nlloot Cur ran. who, wnile it was admitted that he was a most elo IT?., 7 "ot "aPP???<l to be a profound ?*7*r-, I don'r mean to say that that was the preva leni opinion with regard to our deceased friend, hut I *JM'' exceedingly possible that some men may have doubted whether he possessed the learning of a sound lawyer, In addition to his abilities as sd advocate. I say emphatically theie may have been other# wno knew more of law, who road more cases; but no man at this urns was gitied with a mind better oonstltutsd to make ihose proper and nice distinctions which enable him to obtain a right view of a case. It would be also a great mistake to suppose that he was not a student. He had esriy furnished his mind with a thorough knowledge of VI P ?ciP1<,s ot profession. The constant practice which his great abilities brought him into perhaps pre vented him trom keeping up that study with the -eme intensity as others; but he kept up with the orogrees of our profession. In addition to all this his nund was imbued with all the beauties of claseio learning?more than falls to the share of most men who have gone through the same career. That was one of the elements of hi* eloqoence which enabled him to tower above men who had nothing more than the ordinary gift of words, let me speak of him as a man. 1 said 1 knew film lrom a boy: we were playmates together.

The Cltnrch of the Annunciation in Fourteenth street, near Sixth avenue, presented a most impressive scene yesterday, the occasion being the religions exercises at tendant upon the funeral of the late Ogden Hoffman. The church was densely crowded with an audtence which, for respeotabilify, wealth, talent and position, is seldom cal ed together, even in this great city, where ciicum stances are constantly transpiring to harry togsther the eliie of her citizens. The best known and most influen tlal of our judges, lawyers, merchants and politicians were there. Indeed, it would be Invidious to partlcular ire, in an assemblage where nearly all were so eminent and filledfso large afuefsare of the public eye. It was a worthy ovation to an eloquent and distinguished man ?*<Htabls to his memory and those who so fitly dig! played.their appreciation of It.

But it is beyond the purpose, as It would be the limits of an essay, to go iate the merits rf this old cintrovevy, or to eeek to dietirt the decision whioh popular opinion has made upon it? "let the dead bury the dead." Alexander Hamilton was of Scotch descent on the father tnd of Huguenot on the mother's side. He was bojro ?? the Isle ot Nevis, in the West Indies, on the Uth of Janu ary, 1767- His mother died when he was a child, tu* father was in indigent circumHtanooe, and the child wm left to ihe bounty of its mother's relations. At elsvsw . ears, he was pUeed in the countirg honse of one Nicho las Cruger. a merchant of Santa Cruz. H# was remarks biv prtcocions?one of the few children who, maoliestang premature talents in youth, vindieate at a riper age their t-arly promise. He gave, at the early age of twelve, aa irdication as weU of his ambition as of hi* chnraotsr. He wrote ths let'sr to a companion, Biwaru Stevens, an en tract from which we give:?

But now he had a wider field. He bad a theatre worthy of bis fertile and versatile genius, and a task cas ing into exercise the frill measure of his powers. He wae to assist to msks a country ; to start moving a new m unified experiment of government; tobtirg tyatetn out ot chaos; to adapt a new government to the wants, ne cessities and genius cf a people; to impress upon thus peop'e a homogeneous aai uatijnsl character. to levlte credit to inspire confidence, to create stability and se curity, and to inaugu-ate the po srcrtul reign ot law aaf order. ... . _ Tbe scattered elf mints which war had itiewnor lsn were to he gatheted tcge.cer and moulded Inlo empire. His duties ielat?d to the internal oiganization and rela tions of the government; and these duties, it will be seen at once, wire of the most pressing and vital impor tance. If the new government failed, its (allure would be re'erred to the neglect of ihem, or the Inability te discharge them with efficiency. Circumstances were most Inauspicious; th# jealousies of the States; the pow erful opposition to the constitution, now ready to M turned into apposition to the government; ths laife number of influential and embittered maloonvents disap pointed in perst-ual objects and swarUng under amM of neglect; public and individual suffering and embar rassment?the effects of the long war; the distrust of tha experiment so extensively felt, snd the want of power and resonroes in the government to ensure respect H heme snd abroad; the angry collisions ol different tftataa with their sectional jealousies and antipathies; an nn paid soldiery, dismissed without employment to suffertnc and destitution; snd of hosts of clamorous creditors with the worthless pap?r of the govsrmnent on han?; the natural jealousy of power in those who haa just escaped from its dominion; and tbe certainty foreseen or c(lending multitudes or expectants am the favor of bounty of the government, or rf adherents to particular projects and schemes rf sdminlstration?three thicg* would have made tbe tank of government most embarrassirg and difficult, wit boat the addi Ion ef the Inherent diffloulties of administrating k> novel a plau, where there wei# no lights ol experience to xM'te or direct it, and where new and vexatious nuee lirts must arise at every turn. One gnat print was gained?Washington s name waa a tower of strength, ine patri.ns, too. felt that it waa now a test time of nU for whi:h they had suffered; lor no proipeet of salvation could be seen to reprieve ths unsuc cessful issue of the present trim. Hamilton thought that In this state of things, strength and vigor were indispensable elements ol success. Hta military experience hard show ,i htm that nearly ail the disasters ot the war had been oocasloned oy ths feeble ness of the Congress, and the unmistakable evidences rf contusion, anarchy and imbecility which characterised the general administration under the articles ot confede ration, and ol the individual State governments, erna tirnied and strengthened him in the opinion that vigor lw 'he head of the nation was the absolute necessity ol am ' ime. It was certainly very natural for a statesman to suppose that strength was the panaose tor a republic whose great and apparent evils had originated in weuh ness. ? . , , .
