IS minute* before 4 o'clock, and finished at 10 minute* before 9 > cine a Important front Philadelphia. We received intelligence last evening, at a late hour, of the probability that the Whig Convention would abandon all the candidates heretofore named?Clay, Taylor, Scott, fee.?and finally settle down on Crittenden, of Kentucky, for President, and Clayton, of Delaware, for Vice. This would be a very strong and popular ticket, avoiding all extremes, and getting rid of all rivalries. Crittenden is a high-minded, talented whig?supported the Mexican war?and would be acceptable to the friends of Clay, Scott, and Taylor, respectively. Such a ticket would have an admirable chance for the vote of New York. We wait with patience for the result. The Demonstration of the Ilaruburners_ Grrat Cry, but Little Wool. Yesterday afternoon, the great demonstration of the barnburners took place in the 1'ark, in opposition to the regular nomination of Cass and Butler. The weather was most beautiful?the sun shone over the trees and the City Hall with great brilliancy, and the fresh western breeze carried health and happiness, besides eloquence, on its wings. The meeting was rather Iurge; but a considerable portion wus made up of whigs and Cass men, with a small sprinkling of "ourcolored brethren," of the most sable kind. There >vas "great erv and little wool." A full report will be found in our columns to-day. Mr. C. C. C'ambreleng was one of the first speakers; but beyond the few listeners on the stage, and the reporters near him, he was heard by few in the* crowd. During his speech, great bout* broke out in different portions of the crowd, for "C'ass and Butler?hurra for Cass und Butler." After Mr. Cambreleng had finished, a terrific hout was raised for "John Van Buren"? 44 Prince John '*?"John Van Buren"?"Prince John forever!" John soon made his appearance, I and made qnite an animated speech to those around hun?few else could hear a word. We | refer our readers to the report. John said?".No j matter who the whigs nominate, the barnburners will not support him." The meeting, on the whole, wasrutherftir as a drmonstratiun?perhaps four or five thousand of barn- 1 burners, whig*, hunkers, and a considerable lot of negroes at the first go oil??qual to defeat General Cass in this State; but even that is not absolutely certain. It wound up with two Cass meetings on the outskirts of the crowd. It counted in numbers and respectability about the same which have marked all the previous secessions or insurrections in the democratic party, during the last twenty years. It may last just long enough to take the vote of York from General Cass and give it to the whig", if they nominate a good man; but can have 110 permanent existence. It is only an org 111ized insurrection. All is yet in the wind, till the whigs make their nomination, to-day or to-morrow, in Philadelphia. Then we will ku?>w where we are. The only capital made at the meeting Was done by John Van Buren. Ilis speech was a fine one on his side of the fence?full of wit, point, eloquence and sarcasm. His debut is a hit, and he is set down as a splendid speaker, by all parties. At the dose, some gentlemen proposed to go to Sherwood \ Fisher's, in Broadway, and get a few oysters. John turned up the tail of his eye and asked, " is that a good place to liquor 1" This produced a roar of merriment, and away they went. It is now said that Crittenden and Clayton will be the candidates of the whig convention, and may be nominated to-day. The Abolitionists of thk North.?The abolitioni?.'s, of the various colors, are beginning to agitate in the free State3 of th? North, in reference to the next Presidency. Some time ago, in New England, Senator Hale, of New Hampshire, was put forward as a candidate for the Presidency, by a certain section of the Union. We observe, also, that a liberty convention has been held at Rochester, in this State, where Uerritt Smith, of Otsego county, has been nominated for the Presidency. The Wilmot proviso party, a fragment ol the democracy, will ioon meet at Utica, and put forward their eandid.itc for the Presidency ; so that in the course of a few weeks, we will have three diflerent and distinct candidates for the Presidency, nominated by as many diflerent factions, who make a great noise and fuss about j Iree labor, and the rights of the colored rsee, in ojh ' position to negro slavery of the Southern States. Four years ago, in the great election for Presi- j dent, the abolitionists had but one candidate* ! that was Birney?to hirii they gave over sixty thousand votes. Since that time abolition agitation ha* rather increased than diminished, besides breaking itself into three distinct factions, earh with its own candidate. The clianres, therefore, are, that the aggregate vote of the abolitionists, of all colors and shades, will reach one hundred thousand next November. Both the old parlies, whigs ?u ucmiovihip.wiii suncr some oy me*e seceHMons. PrBLic MEirmov?We would suggeat to pcraons about calling public meeting* in tlii* city, the propriety of convening them at an earlier hour in the evening than eight o'clock. When they are culled at that hour, it ta Beldorn that they are organized before half-past eight; the reading ot resolutions, ; ?V'c., occupies the time till nine, and then the speeches are made. Sow, we desire to give full report* in thisjourn.il of nil public meeting* of im- i porta noe ; und we can assure the m magers or directors of them, that an hour after ten or eleven o'clock is nl great importance to the printer*, n? well its to the reporters, of new?pipers. If it were regulated mi that all public meeting* tdiould be eon. veued at seven, we would have an extn hour to do justice to the proceedings, and publiah all the. b i 1 -? . - iiu.-oj l/f?u><vnuTiav~lj>? FctKmCk Ajrt> Pro lunrt (publUhed In v??i?fil ay'* paper, a report of the proceeding! and speeches that took place at the Iridl demonstration in the Tabernacle, in thin city, on Monday erening last. The demonstration, which was apparently made With the view of expressing sympathy to th.' Irish people in their t-truggle for a separate nationality, and affording them help in money nnd insane, to as great tin extent as possible, consistent with a due observance of the laws of the land, had likewise another object in view, and that object may be attended hereafter with consequences of a very serious nature. In a word, the other, and as we think the principal, object in view of the getters up and ?r>?w> movers of tliin demonstration. w?n n noliti. ral one; and in order to illustrate it, we must premise our exposition of the raal objects of this meeting by simply laying down two propositions: First, that we are on the eve of a Presidential election; and second, that there is in the United States a large number of Irish voters, who, by their union in support of, or in opposition to, the respective candidates, can either elect or defeat them. The nominees of the democratic party are already before the world; and those of the whigs will be blazoned forth to-morrow or the next day. About election times, the Irish people are hugged and caressed almo-t to death, by the two great parties. P.itrick O'Flaherty, a highly respectable carrier of bricks anfi mortar, who, in the course of his life, has had many ups and downs in the world, in a professional point of view, finds himself dubbed Mr. O'Flaherty, and occasionally Mr. O'Flaherty, Esq., and no less; and Mr. O'Flaherty, Esq., being an American citizen, and his vote counting one, as well as all others, is politely applied to by each to cast his ballot for its candidate. The various occasions on which the candidate in question (or, if the candidate has not had the honor, the party to which he belongs,) has advocated the rights of Ireland, and poured forth his sympathies for her misfortunes, and his fire and brimstone against England and the English government, as the cause of them, are eloquently pourtrayed; and Pat's heart being touched, he innocently gulps down the c!os" prepared for him, and immediately votes for the champion of his native country. The democrats practised this game to a great extent; and it is not assuming too much to say, that in many elections? city, state, and national?they owed their triumphs to their electioneering policy towards our Iriah citizens. We are, then, on the eve of the Presidential election, und the Irish voters, who are very important about election times, must not be over? looked. Hut it happens that the whigs have taken a leaf out of the locofoco manual of election tactics, and seem to think that, as all is fair in politics, they might as well try and procure some of the Irish votes, so as to counterbalance the number inveigled awav by the democrats. Apt scholars, as politicians of all parties are, in the learning of trickery and deception, they have become as efficient in wheedling the Irish, about election times, into the support of their candidates, as the locofocos have been in times past; so that, in that respect, the two parties are on a par; for both can now point to the services which their respective parties have done towards Ireland. Both parlies have, therefore, tacitly agreed that he who bids the highest, who talks the loudest, who dilates the most pathetically, on Ireland's wrongs: who attributes the most virtue to the Irish people?the most integrity to her men, and the greatest charms to her women, and who declaims the most bitterly against England?her Queen, Lords, and Commons?on account of Ire lxnd a wrongs and Iri6h injuries, shill have the Irish votes. Hence the struggle at the Tabernacle on Monday evening last. The old hunkers, represented bv Mayor Havemeyer, Senator Hannegan, and Benjamin F. Butler, did wonders. They made a great impression?they decidedly had the best of it. The barnburners, in the person of John Van Buren, bid high. That distinguished burner of granaries did very well; but his sentences were too long. lie nude up, however, in the matter of " arms." That reached the point, and as long as it lasted, Prince John waa in a fair wiy of throwing Hannegan, Butler and McKeon in the shade; but it must be recollected that Hmnegnn went into the " poor Irish boy " business, and very pathetically alluded to O'Conneli'a heart, and Emmelt's monument. There Hannegan had the best of it, and demolished the " arms," and the right : under the constitution to ship them to Ireland. The whiga had their turn, and w?rc repreaented by the white coat and that battered hat. The hat i and coat, however, remained too long in the rear. Their owner endeavored to bring up and reach the point accomplish-d by his predecessors of the other fictions, but the hcur was too lat<??it waa paproaching midnieht?th? audienc* got thin?he Itgged, got b'hind, and th^ meeting adjourned. The hunkers, therefore, us fit is the Iri?h demon| stration i? concerned, made th" most c ipit.il thus far; and according to present appsar-tnees, will carry the most Irish votes at the Presidential election in November next. In sober-seriousness, therefore, this Irish de nionstration was nothing but an attempt, by the different political factions and parties, to get the Irish vote next November, and may justly, in our opinion, be looked upon as the second grand attempt in the history of politics in the United States, to organize our Irish fellow citizens into a separate ond independent party, and, we fear, one likely tc result in consequences similar to those which sue I ceeded the organization brought about by our rei verend friend, Bishop Hughes, n few years since, in j this city. The school system of the State of New York did net meet his views; and, therefore, he is ! sued his dictum to the faithful that it must be ! ain.-nded ; and in view of the right of suffrage be> ing the most speedy and efficient ogont for pro. during changes, he determined ujKm availing | himself of that weapon to accomplish his purpose From the altar he immediately desended, witli i the perfume of the holy incense around him, to the door of Carroll Ilall, and there he organized hit ! narty of Irish voters, who were to vote as he die tated, and for the purposes which he had in view, He succeeded in organizing a separate Irish party and what were the consecjijetjces? History tells ui there was a counter organization?there was con flict?thtre was bloodshed?there was murder; anil the blackened wails of the Church of St. Augustine pointed the moral. If this Irish demonstration was the prelude?the preliminary step to organize a second time lite Irish voters into a separate politicul party, for tlx purjKise of voting for the candidates of the part> whose leaders and wire-pullers bedaub them the most with flattery, and beslaver them the mosl with the saliva of hum'jug philanthropy for politick purposes?it ought to be denounced by all righl ihmking men and by all good citizens, who desire not a re|?rtition of the (earful scenes, the murders, riots, antl conflagrations, which followed Bishop I Hughes' attempt in the same direction. It will, il commenced for that purpose, and carried out to the same extent?it it result in a separate organization of the Irish as a political party?lie attended with counter-organization, and the other consequences which we have nlludeij toj for \ye can have no distinct foreign party of votes m this country. One word to the Iiirh thews*-Ives?let them vote t - their consciences dictate. Let theni not be carried away by the psuedo philan'hropy of professional politicians, who care no more for Jr-I.md and Irishmen, jeeept as voters in the advancement of thpir purpose, than ijjev do lor the woolly head Afriean oil th?* rliores of rlie salt JuKes in Cnliforni i. Hut libove all things, let th avoid L/fjntf led into it t* parnte political organization, pledget] lo support a particular ticket, or a particular candidate, politicians i-?rt not for <li? cpiiseiju- ijces that might result from an opposite pouts#. Jf |hey secure ills votes, the voters may go to IJarnegU, and the long oppressed isle of tbejaoean, be depopulated by "im r-Miii " ' - - - ' A- . ! utvt*Ai. Tatvim's pnAcruM. ~Th# LmauviM* j ' Jturntil, St. Lauil Rt/iublkan, and rnanjr other | newspapers, leem to lake much interest in ex- ! | plaining the political position of General Taylor, ) should he be passed over by the whig convention, and another nominated for the Presidency. They have affirmed positively that the old hero will not be a candidate in opposition to the whig nominee; while they admit he said that he is in the hands of his trienda and those who have made him a candidate during the last year. We think there is a great deal of false spe.iinl i pleading in these explanations. There is a large portion of the independent masses who maniI c j r.._ e. er> ...u_ I iraicu u jiiricrcur- 111 mvurui itcutiui i ayiui, wnu will never give hiin up ad their candidate, but will run him, whether he consents or not; nnd in this 1 parrot the qountry, the fragment that remains of ' the element of the native party will be revived for ! : this purpose. The recent attempt in this city, by 1 Ernmett and Hogan, to organise the Irish voters into a political party, will only tend to excite the old materials of nativism into a high state of effervescence. General Taylor will bo run as a candidate for the Presidency, at all hazards, nnd against all contingencies ; and of this there can be no doubt. Heretofore, the whigs have suffered most; but now, the democrats will suffer also. The effect of these movements on the Presidential election cannot exactly be calculated at this moment. The abolition vote of 1844, taken from the whig ranks, elevated Mr. Polk to the Presidency. Parties ere now more even. News fkom Encore.?There are now four steamers on the Atlantic, bound to the United States. The Acadia, which left Liverpool on Saturday, the 27th ultimo, will be due here on Saturday next. The Washington, from Southampton, was to have left on the 1st instant, and may be expected on the 14th. The Sarah Sands, also for this port, was advertised to leave Liverpool on the 6th; and the new steamship America, for Boston, will be fully due on Friday, the 16th. News from the South.?The Southerner canic in yesterday morning very early, having left Charleston on Saturday night. We have New Orleur.s ; and Charleston papers one day in advance of the mail, for which we are indebted to Capt. Berry and to the kindness of the offices of the Courier, Mercury and Xnet. Theatrical end M lult al. Bowr.nr Theatre.?Tho drama of |" Ehrenstein" was performed last evening to a bouse very respectably filled. This drama is oao of thu real German ouos. replete with bloody barous. ghosts, funny warders, and ambitious young counts; and their various doings, fee., are all worked up In James, the novelist's, peculiar style; for the drama. " Ehronstein," la the adaptation of James1 novel of that name. The scenery, dresses, bo., are all most magnificent, and the acting was also good. Marshuli, as the chief character, was much applauded. This ercninir a very favorite spectacle will be revived. vii: " Valsha, or the Itovolt of tho Slavon. ' ThU is u most interacting as well an splendidly scenic play. To | morrow eveuing. Mr. Marshall will take a benefit. We i trust it will be buuiper. Ha deserves it, fir by his judicious and excellent acting, he has contributed much t? the amusement of the patrons of the Bowery. We helleve that Mr. Marshall is yet destined to rise very high in his profession. Chatham Theatre?Tho house was crowded last evening, and the various pieces Bet down in the bill went off with much spirit. The drama of " Louise" is a most interestiug one, and the acting of Mrs. Jones. Mrs Booth, and the rest of the company, was true to nature. Of Moise, what need we say, ?avo that time seems to strengthen instead of effaco the great hold that this piece lias taken oa the affections of the public. It is really a sight to see how the people do pour into the Chatham early in the evening, from the time the door* are opened until the house is filled. This week, we hare already mentioned, is the lost one duriug which ( haufrau can play, as he will appear In Boston en Monday next. We understand that at the close of th* prehent season the house will be rofitted and dccuratod In the most modern and approved style. The great popularity It enjoys will then be enhanced more than ever Castle Garden.?The indications are that tho present season at this maguiflcent houso will be tho most brilliant one that has yet been seen there; and as the proprietors announce their Intention to use all exertion throughout the season, to present every description of novelty bearing the stamp of originality and attraction, wo may anticipate a contiuued succession of attractive performances The engagement of i vi a dame Augusta, aud the delightful dramatio and bal| let pi-ce.< which are being performed every eteuiug. now show that they are in earnest in the matter. The inimitable Holland, so well known to the ylay-going community, as the quaintest comedian on the boards, is as good a manager us he is an actor; and under his direction everything will be brought out. To-night the performances will be peculiarly uutertaining?Madituie Augusta will appear in her charming dances, supj ported by M'lle. Vallee and Mons.

It appears that the author!- j ties of Staten Island debarked a steamboat load of nowly arrived emigrants at the foot of North Moore | street, in the Fifth ward, one of whom wss seriously 111 with that dreadful and loathsome disease, the small pox. The invalid was, with the rest of the emigrants. , deposited in the Kifth ward; and as might be expected , from human nature, under the circumstance, the nearest abiding place, where the sick individual could procure shelter, was obtained. What were the ' consequences ? Such as might have been ex- I pected to arise under such circumstances at this season of the year. The dreadful disease was imparted to those who attended the sick bed? f.-om them to the occupants of the house; from : them to the neighborhood; and from thom to the whoio ward; and we would not b? at all suprised, if it extended 1 to the whole city, and made every other house therein 1 a small box hospital. Ia there no preventive of J such calamities ? Is the health of the population of our city to bo endangered In this way. or is there a remedy? I Thin ease, we &r < Informed, was properly attested, and brought to the notice of Judge Hurlbut. before whom the question is pending, whether the foot of Hubert street shall be devoted to the landing of emigrants during the ensuing hot soason; or whether they shall be landed at a point in the upper portion of the city, whore the risks of the spread of contagion would be diminished ainety-nine per cant. We hope It will have Its due effect In the decision to which the learned judge shall arrive; and we hope further, that whatever that decision may be. our citizons will take every means in their power to prevent New York being converted into a great small pox hospital, as it would ' be in case the project of landing passengers in a thickly populated portion of the city, in the hot sum- { mer months, were carried out. 1 The Empire State.?Yesterday afternoon, the pier No. 3. North River, was lined with spectators, in ordor ' to witness the departure of the Empire State, and the Bay State, two truly steamboat palaces. The latter ' under command of Captain Brown, took her departure : at four o'clock, with a respectablo number of passen- j gers, for Boston direct, by water. The Empire State, : commanded by Captain Comstock, is a new boat, measuring over 200 tons more than the Bay State, and 1 titled up in the most sumptuous and rtchtrcht stylo.

The ladies' saloon is covered with the most costly Turkey carpets; the sofa* and divans aro of blaek walnut, covered with dam**k of blue and fold; tho < state rooms and berths are neat and beautiful beyond j description ; tho upper promenade deck is richly car- j peted. and tho sofas and chairs aro painted u dark kluc, | edged with gold, giving tho tout entttnhlt a magnificent j t-flect. Tho engine appears to be of the highest finish, made by Allaire & Co. She was visited yt sterday by a vast number of iitdios and goutlemen. who were nil i struck with astonishment at the grandeur and beauty : of ail tho inside arrangements. She left the dock at i five o'clock, with a very largo number of passengers.

Yesterday, Mr. Hors- i burgh, of No. 84 Hudson street, in thl* city, died, leaving a very Inrgc property, which he had accumulated i some years ago as a merchant of this city. The deceased was but little known to the preseut generation; but to the old citizens he was Intimately kuown.? His property was largo, aud the whole interest of it. it is said, he expended annually for all sorts of charitable purposes, with the exception of about eight hundred or a thousand dollars, which he reserved for bis own ex- i peases. Mr. Horsburgh came to this aountry about i fifty years ago. from St. Andrews, in Scotland, of which place he was a native He resided a long time in Alexandria. where he pursued mercantile business; aud then he cam* to New Vork. where be entered into partnership with Mr. McRae. and subsequently with the late John .Mason, formerly President of the Chemical Bank. The firm existed for several years, until both of the partners retired from busiuesa with large fortunes Mr. Horsburgh has left behind him three nephews In th<* country, who. it is probable, will be the heirs of his immense property. Tho character of the deceased was that of the mo-t generous and charitable man that ever lived in New York. The whole of the interest of his immense property, as we have already stated, was given every year to charitable purposes. For the last five years of his life, he did not reservo a single dollar of his income for his own purposes, and though it was so very large, he would laugh heartily and say he was in debt to his nephew. What a contrast to the character of John Jacob Astor!

It in now said that the commitment was made out as a mere matter of form, and at the request of the committed party, who proposed that method of procedure. in order to raise the question which Is now at issue : in short, the justice who holds over was only committed on paper, and the officer who was to receive him in charge, was one of his own choosing.
