THE WEEKLY HERALD. Itlalle for Kiuope. The Rtrnmrhip Britannia will leave Boston to-morrow noon, for Halifax and Liverpool. Her letter bags will close in this city at half-past 3 o'clock, this afternoon. The Weekly Herald, printed in French and F.nglish, for European circulation, will be published at 12 o'clock to-day. It will contain all the important nowg of the week. Single copies, in wrappers, sixpence. The Speculators lit Food. The steamship Washington is in her sixteenth day, and, of course, may be expected to ariive at any moment. The Boston steamer is in her tenth day, and we shall begin to look for her news on Thursday night. We understand ihat, in consequence of the condition ot the crops in England and Ireland, at the last accounts, the simulators iu corn, the dealers in starvation, are making an effort to obtain the market news in advance ot all other sources, m order to enable them to prey upon the poor creatures of the city and fair dealers in the market. What they will do with the telegraphic wires is yet unknown to us ; but they rarely stop at tnflles to effect their object, in their ellbrts to wring the last copper from the loodless and the ragged. It is lo be hoped that the telegraphic companies will take this matter into consideration. The Boston company, when it meets to-day, ought to adopt some plan which will completely put a stop to this simulation in the misery ot the human race. The Election. Mnw thnf flip Biitnmpr ia rrriwl 11a I It/ *!ruitrinrr 1 n u close, although the weather is still pleasant and agreeable, the politicians of all sides, and the people themselves, are beginning to wake up to the importance of the approaching Presidential ! election. As matters now stand throughout the I nion, with their several parties and their candi- I dates, the battle will, no doubt, be to the most bugacious, and the victory to the greatest number, i We have three important candidates for the Pre- j sidency before the country. General Taylor, Gen. j Cass and Mr. Van Buren. Another gentleman, JVfr. Gerrit Smith, who had Deen nominated last winter by a portion of the radical democracy in i favor of land reform, still tnsists in occupying the j position he has been placed in, unless he should j be withdrawn by the men who placed hint there. He sticks to his text like a man, but can have no hope of any thing beyond his immediate friends 1 an private acquaintances, in the way of voting. The great contest of this election is, no doubt, between General Taylor and General Cass. It is assumed by many of the friends and supporters of Mr. Van Buren, that he has been gaining ground on the free soil movement in the North, that he has the best chance for the vote of New York, and probubly ol some other of the Northern States; but these claims, although they may be put forth by impassioned leaders, from the stump, are by no means admitted by the judicrous and discreet politicians of the oilier parties, struggling in the contest. The fight, in the present election, is ' substantially between General Taylor and General Cass, and the chances of those two eminent men are so entitely covered with clouds and dark- 8 ness that no politician can tell exactly who 8 will be the victor. The present canvass is one A of the most varying ones, in the period of time that has elapsed since its commencement, that ! lias ever taken place in this country. Since the nominations in May and June last the prospects j have changed with every change of the moon, and i during the next two months, before the seventh j ol November, we should not be surprised to see ' as many changes, and perhaps more than what " that bright luminary of heaven will perpetrate 1 during the same time. At this particular moment * the chances of General Cass are undoubtedly in n the ascendant, arising more from the folly, the weakness, the imbecility, the pride, and impracticability of whig politicians, statesmen, " orators, and editors, than from any other caute '' whatever. t General Taylor was brought forward more than a year ago, at independent meetings of inde|>en- I dent men, who wanted a change in the platform i of the old iwrties, who wanted a revolution in the t political feelings of the country, and who be- \ lieved that the prestige and honesty of General | Taylor, combined with hit experience and intellect, were favorable to such a happy consummation in public Mtirtirn. General Taylor, in all his correspondence, haB invariably occupied the position which he assumed at the commencement of the canvass, more than a year ago ; yet. in consequence of his nomination by the whig convention in Philadelphia, a aeries of (nieutm, or explosions, have taken place anion}' the whig politicians of the North, which have been operating on 'he public mind to such an extent as will, if the sober senre of the independent people do not rise up at once, most assuredly defeat him in the coming contest. Whig orators, whig joutnals, whig Biano'uvres of all kinds, those professing to be opposed to Inrn. as well as those professing to be his inends, h ivc only be en injuring the cause of General Taylor f?r the last lew months. The whig journals of this city have been particularly conspicuous as elements o< mischief, ignorance and presumption, calculated to aid the can*'' cf General tun, whom thep deprecated so m i-V I Look at the column*, for the last few month*, of the I Countr and hn/uirtr, the Evening Mirror, the c Dntly Erprets, the New York Tribune, the Com- I mcrrial Ailmtiur. Almost every article put lort^ by these journals, on every subject connected w lth politics, has been calculated to spread apath y anj disgust, to create a distaste against Ge.i. 'faylor, i nd indirectly to aid the cause of his c ompetitor for the Presidency. Some of the lett'jrs Gf Gen. Taylor, in which he wrote nothing but lus well known convictions, have been d< .nounced by the Mirror and Exprttt as forgeries,_ heaping on them every epithet of disrespect an d contumely. Tiie Irish naturalized citizens, a .nd Irish liber y. have been held up to ridicule an d abuse, particularly by the Fxyrtn and Mirror, vhen it is known that a arge body of these woythy and independent citi zens are favorable to t'^ir elevation of Gen. Taylor to the Presidency. The movement in Albany, commenced by Th nrlow Weed for the purpose of throwing every Uiing into confusion, nus been nipped in the bud, only by the sudden rising of the people. The 'great speech of Daniel Webster i8 merely an apology, amounting almost to an outrage, on the intellectual character and position of Gen. Taylor. In fact, the movements and declarations of Mr. Van Huren and his free soil adherents, have more manliness, and arc tinctured with more fairness and more honorable spirit, than any part ot the conduct which has been exhibited durng the last few months by the whig leaders including orators, spouters, resolution-makers, editors er stumpers. It is, therefore, plain, after surveying the field as it has exhibited its variations, during the last few months, that the independent people who formerly brought forward General Taylor, as a candidate for the Presidency, in order to create a revolution in parties in this country, are beginning to be alarmed?more at the pretended friendship of the whig leaders of New York, than even those who are to be lound in the ranks of Mr. Van Buren or General Caes. Unless there is a strong rally of the people?the people, the real people, the independent people?throughout the Northern States,,as well ub in other parts of the Union, there is every probability that General Taylor will be defeated in the approaching election in November, and that Gen. Cass will most likely be the successful candidate, as Mr. Polk was four years ago, by movements on a small scale, in comparison to those which have grown up during the present canvass. Bisnop Hi ohes and thk IRISH rebellion.? The generous conduct of Bisnop Hughes, in subscribing the sum of five hundred dollars for the purchase of a shield, in order to help (he Irish people to establish a republic, or a separate independence, in opposition to British misrule, has been the topic of comment in several journals, and been made the theme of some ugly questions, that may puzzle him a good deal in the course of his ministration in this diocese. In the Comtnnctal jidvertitcr, the other evening, we find the following curious inquiries:? We respectfully ask for certain information at the hands of Bishop Hughes, made desirable, to us at least, by the appearance of a document, published in the Irish and English papers, and thence transferred to our columns yesterday. We allude to the memorial intended to be laid before the Queen of England by the Roman Catholic clergy of the diocese of Tuarn in Iieland. It {is a matter of public notoriety that Bishop Hughes, of New York, has distinctly given the sanction of his name and priestly character to the recent insurrectionary movement in Ireland. It is known, also, that the duty of loyalty to the throne and sovereignty of Great Britain has been unequivocally re- I pudiated by the originators and leaders of that movement ; and all the expected and presumable consequences of the movement, including resistance to royal authority, the slaughter of royal troops and loyal subjects, in short, every thing practically falling within the purview of organized rebellion, have been again and again exalted as heroic virtues, not only by the speakers at public meetings in this city and elsewhere, but also in the official addresses, proclamations, kc., of the "Directory"' under whose guidance all the proceedings - for the aid of Ireland" have been originated and carried on. Bishop Hughes, by publicly speaking at one of the meet- < ings, by counselling his countrymen to take an active part in the cause, by giviDg five hundred dollars 1 for its prosecution, and by his whole course of action on the subject, has given his entire sanction to the , attemnt. nurnoaes. and nroceedlnirs r,t ?h? ,i-t?nl speakers in Ireland, and empowered them to pay that 1 he, in his capacity of spiritual leader, upholds all that , they bare said. done, and attempted, to be morally and religiously free from all objection, worthy of all ap- ' proval. t But the opinion of the Roman Catholic clergy in the diocese of Tuam seems to be widely different from that of Bishop Hughes. They make the strongest prufes- j sions of''eternal loyalty to the throne"?they hare observed "with pain" the proceedings of the inaur- I gents and their instigators?they " disagree with them < on principle"?they " denounce them as the enemies of order, religion, and the country"?and they implore the royal clemency "for the deluded, misguided" per- l sons who hare taken part in the proceedings thus do- | , nounced. Now we do not profess to understand?we hare never i 1 been able to obtain a distinct and satisfactory ex- . planation of?the extent to which " infallibility" is , claimed by the church of which Bishop Hughes is a i I distinguished ornament; but it seems not nnreasona- , ble to suppose that the sphere of its infallibility at least ! ought to extend so far as to include the rule of action , ' governing great questions of morality, private or pub- f lie; and such a question assuredly is that of the duty . of a people to their government, and to their fellow I ' citizens or subjects. If. then, the church lays down { infallible rules for the determination of such questions, the teaching of its ministers ought to be uniform in ] e repaid to them. The Bishop of Tuam and the Bishop i ot N- w York ought to hold one language, inculcate one ' , doctrine, set one example. Yet, as we have seen, , i at belie and Protestant are not more widely at issue t than are. in this matter, the clergy of Tuam and the [ , Li-hop of New York. We should he gratified by an exposition from Bishop ; 1 Hughes of his views upon this important subject. ^ We must acknowledge there is something per- t tinent in those remarks, an well as in the ques- f lions put to the Bishop. It is generally understood L that the first movement favorable to the Irish re- l hellion in this city, waa discountenanced by s Bishop Hughes, until, under some new dispensa- t lion cu particular revelation, his eminence became r i sudden convert, and took up the case on its own t nerifp. The next movement connected with the 3ishop, was his appearance at u public meeting, j lip subscribing five hundred dollars, and above all, r in eloquent speech in favor of the Irish cause, and y igaicst the British government and its policy tovards Ireland. Vet we do not see in this conduct 8 tny thing disparaging to Bishop Hughes as prelate j >1 the Cutholic church. Catholicity is neither f nonarchical, nor aristocratic, nor republican. It itioi gs to all those forms of government and ^ ociety, and there can be no more inconsistency n the bishops and priests of Ireland adhering to | he British government, thsn in Bishop Hughes J r:d his clergy adhering to the American govern- l nent in opposition to any other. The Catholic jj ysteni is not particular in the extreme in such natters. It is elastic and 1ms in its comi>oeition a irgc quantity oftiie invisible and immaterial gutta n ercha. It :eeks not to establish monarchy, or jt rietocrscy, or republicanism. It endeavors to n repare s< ul? for Heaven, under every system of overr.meut and every system of laws. It will, therefore, be very easy for Bishop Iughe to rep!) to the proteslant editor, and gain 0 srnnphte a victory over him, as he did over t. he llev. Dr. Murray, of Iiliznbetlitown, in the re- ^ < nt controversy between those two divines. But c lu- principal point in this matter is the mtney, the f, urn of thirty-five thousand dollars, wliich was col- ? ected by the lii*h lurectory, and the right which j Tirhop Hughes has to claim his five hu.idred dol?rs, and take buck the whole of the speech which ip pronounced on the night on which he made his t< lubfcription. That money, and the speech, in- '' iudmg all the sentiments and professions, should y ie if turned to the Bishop by the Directory. They s mve a precedent to take such a course, in this city t> iVben the revolution broke out in Dombardy, a nige sum of money was collected by the Italians o lere, for tfic purjKise of aiding and assisting their c lountrymen at home in recovering their indepen- 1 lenee. However, it appeared that the Italians, like f he Irish, were not fully prepared to accomplish r heir independence. What did the Italian Ihrcc ' ory do, under the circumstances I They returned [ he money to the subscribers; and we know of one i iccasion, if not more, where a subscriber, to the imount of one hundred dollars, received back *] tie identical money.

To a reader of these glowing accounts, situated at a distance, the society at Saratoga Newport, and the other summer resorts, woulc appear to be the most amiable, the most graceful the most delightful, the most beautiful, and th< most innocent, that ever frolicked on this eartl since the first duy in Paradise, before the wil; serpent entered that blissful retreat, in the garl of a fashionable dandy, with elegantly twistei moustaches, ^and other equally captivating appen dages. The credulous assent, however, of th outside barbarians, to these magniloquent des criptions, would be as erroneous as that of th man who would place implicit confidence in th statements of those politicians, of the variou parties, who are now perambulating the country haw king about the praises of their respective can didates, and claiming credit for the purest patri otism, while it is well known their sole motive is to subserve their own personal and mercenar ends. The reports of the Saratoga and Newport balls which have appeared in the various journals?th New York Herald included?make them appea very splendid ; and if the heart be not edified the imagination must be dazzled, by th lengthened, minute, and brilliant descri( Hons which were given of the dresse and the jewelery?the forms and the fashionsthe feathers and the fooleries, of those who figui ed so gracefully on these occasions. It would a most seem a pity to s|?oil these beautiful Ulusionstliese kaleideecope views and splendid fictions < the pomp and pageantry of our fancy aristocracj We cannot help it, however. We have been er deavoring for the last twenty-five years to orgat iee the higher classes of this country upon an ii tellcctual and rational system, in which their cha racter might shine as conspicuous above the othc nations of the world, as their country does in ii immense resources and capabilities, and in whic they would exhibit themselves to posterity as to refined and too proud to copy the manners and th customs of the faded and worn out salons of th old coteries of Europe. Eut the squaring of tli circle is a far easier task, and the discovery of i would be a mere trifle compared to such an ur d (-Making. At Saratoga and at Newport, society appears a smiles and sunshine; but if the surface ispenetrt ted, and one dives a little deeper, it will befoun to be a great BuiTalo convention, composed of th most discordant elements that the late " confusio worse confounded" of parties, brought togethei Every little coterie is marshalled under a distinc banner; and though outwardly professing the moe cordial and amicable relations, makes war upoi another with as much petty slander, malignity, ca lumny and virulence, as, to give an exact and truth ful representation?though "not by particular de sire "?of Sheridan's admirable comedy of th< " School for Scandal." Our fashionable circles, although arrayed in th< most splendid garments, and ornamented with th( most costly bijouticre, are, however, desirous t< make you believe the contrary, simply the son and daughteis of our butchers, and our bakers and our tailors; and they still retain, in the saloon: of Saratoga and Newport, a great deal of th< brusque manners of their worthy parents, whicl all their affectation of the refined polish of loreigi society, cannot entirely remove. The accounts in all the newspapers, of thcs< balls and fashionable demonstrations, are greatl; overcharged, partially fictitious, and generally vert unreliable. We except no paper?not one, no even our own?from this judgment. We hav< sinned, are a sinner, and possibly may sin again in the same way; but we shall always tell the truth, and shame the devil; though we would not for the world, that our honest confession would nantle, with a crimson hue, the cheek of a single >elle or whiskered dandy who was present on hese occasions. So much for fashionable society in this great Metropolis, and the Eurronding country. We are ireparing a series of very curious and spicy arti;les on the fashionable movements and proceed ngs which have taken place during the present utitmer, at Saratoga, Newport, and the o'hei watering places. We shall give a full and correct history of the origin, progress and character ot the various coteries and cliques, with all the proinnent fools and actors of which they were composed?frcm New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and New Orleens. We think thtc t duty we owe to truth and to the pub ic, wnoee imaginations Rave been so shameully filled with a phantasmagoria of mutes which have no existence in the heavens ibove, the earth below, nor the waters under the arth; and it is a duly we also owe to the unforunate scape-goat9 who have been made the viciiris of these celestial delusions. For this highly nterestmg and arduous undertaking, we expect ,vhen our mortal career has closed, and we are -ailed before the angel of judgment, that wc shall ind a large portion of our bye-gone transgressions dotted out from the records, and a consideiable >alunce coming to us on the contra side, in conequenee of the services we shall have rendered >y this searching exposure of the vices and follies, mnities and afltctations, of the fasliionable sociey of our day. Fjief. ?o!L Movements.?To-day's I Urald conains u report of the proceedings of a free soil ueeting. held lust evening, in Abingdon Square, at rhich John Van Buren delivered a speech, in his sual eloquent style, but in which, however, he dvanced nothing new or startling. It was, in ict, only a repetition or re-hash of what he lias lated in former speeches. We should really like to know what John Van iuren has in view. He is shrewd, sharp, talented, olile and amiable. He is accomplished and genrmanly. In whatever society he is placed, he is t home; whether in the ball room among the elles, or in the bar room among the blackguards lut whut can he be about ? If General Cass he lected, of wluch there.is every probability, accord' lg to present appearances, he and his free soi tovrment will be utterly and completely demoshed and annihilated, lie is helping this consutnlation as much as he can. lie is making this a rand test question, and if Cass bent him on it, he j nowhere. If he desires to succeed ultimately, e should retrace his steps, and follow the fortunes f General Taylor. With the addition which he ould bring to the support of the hero of Buena ista, the face of things might be changed, and he ould fall back on the free soil question at some jture time ; but if Cas8 be elected, there will be o salvation for him. Really, we do not see wha1 ohn is about. Another Oiimlliua Driver. Mr. Eihtok Noticing un article in your insiest-of-the-fublic-serving-paper, signed Kate, and aving a few evenings sine witnessed aclrcuinlance proving that all drivers are not "rough"' ilute " reudy," IttuV, that passing up Bleecker tre? t, I noticed n stage suddenly stop, and a lady tt out and sja iik to the driver. Feeling a little uric us in the bfluir, 1 stopped. The driver inunelaicly jumped from his seat, ran to the door, and lining it. told three men to get out as last as they ould, or lie would help then;. They made some nnaika of no avail, as the driver insisted on their citing out, when he helped the lady in, and springng on his box, said he would be d?d if any nan could ride in his stage and insult n lady, guve lis horses a chirrup, and drove on. I have ever ir.ee regretted (hat 1 did not take the number of us singe, which is the reason of iny not making he sflair known before. A Si uscribi:*.

Gigantic Cohritthw ik Triik.?A most ex. traordiriary article appeared in one of ourcotemporaties jesterday, in the shape of a letter, dated at Mexico, August 15th, which, if true, would cover not only the two governments of Mexico and the United States with contempt and disgrace, but involve a number ol most eminent individuals of both , countries. Here it is, and we desire our readers, , and particularly such of them as are connected 1 with the government of the United States, to pon~ , der on the statements which are here so fully pu' : forth:? 1 (From the New Y ork Sun.] When Mr. 'lrist arrived here, he manifested a disi position, or rather determination, to carry out Mr. [) Polk's instructions to the letter ; which, had he done, , the late treaty would never have been consummated, 1 hut all of Mrxteo would have remained happily in our possession, a just indemnity for the eipense of blood and treasure to which she had put us c When certain parties, and I need not hesitate in l- naming Mcintosh and General Scott as principals, e found that Mr. Trlst was fer once inclined to official integrity, it was determined to assault him at two delie cate and tender points, to wit: hie vanity and pocket. 8 He was. by much artful persuasion, led to believe, that by|lending himself to a treaty scheme, such as Mc', intosh & Go. had cut and dried, he would be doing hia L. oonntry and Mexico inexpressible service, and securing to himself at the same time, immortal honors; 1* while he was given to understand thnt a prinoely I share of pecuniary profit would fall to bis lot. Like ' Demos the nes?so far only as the bribe was concerned y ?he could not resist the golden cup, and the result of the matter was a co-partnership with Mcintosh, Soott It Co., for the production of such a treaty as would '? make the parties most money and notoriety at the e same line. The treaty was concocted by these worthies, in conjunction with certain members of the Mexican goI, vernment, as it was called, bought up for the purpose, e and the people of the United States were astonished to find themselves packed off with a barren strip of Mex> ico, for which, besides all the expenses of the war and ld their old claims, tbey were saddled with a bond of fifteen millions of dollars. And this brings me to one of ~ the financial operations which had its influence with [>. the treaty makers. The treaty money was arranged to , be paid in (instalments, the .first of which, amounting l* to three millions of dollars has been paid Instead of ? taking the drafts on the United States, and selling f them for the premium of fifteen per cent, which they " readily command in Mexico, and saving to the U. S.

r. Treasury four hundred and fifty thousand dollars on three millions, or two millions two hundred and fifty thousand on the whole bond of fifteen millions, the I- drafts were handed over by Trist h Co., to Hargous (a , Co.. In consideration of two per cent, or sixty thousand dollars, which Trist m Co. pocketed, while Hari' gous turned the drafts over to a third party for four,r teen per cent, making a clean profit of twelve per cent, or three hundred and sixty thousand dollars, without '9 using a dollar of capital in the transaction, h It is needless almost.to say that Hargous & Co are but sharers of tbls round little sum of one million eight 0 hundred thousand dollars which is to be made by the e twelve per cent dodge on fifteen millions Mcintosh Ik. Co. take the lion's share of the spoils, and those who know how the thing has been worked up to this e point, think Scott and Trist will be none the poorer for the operation. The government financiers at Washington may head off the speculation at the next I* instalment, and save the Treasury a round sum: but they have let three hundred and sixty thousand dollars slip through Uncle Sam's fingers, past redemption. Such is the view?such is the statement, given by j a correspondent of the Xcw York Sun, professing to give accurate intelligence on the subject, and pube shed in that journal yesterday. We tru9t that theBe statements will attract the attention of the Presi dent and his cabinet, and that something will be :t done on the subject, if it is true, which we doubt? ll very much doubt. But if it is true, it ought to dis11 grace ail those connected with the transactions; and if it is false, the falsity of it should be made to appear promptly and openly, from a proper quarter, and in a proper way. Republican governments and J republican statesmen, if they permit such statements to go forth without contradiction, and be circula5 ted through the civilized world, will 6ink into ' contempt and disgrace among the adherents of 3 monarchy in the old world. We have seen enough 3 of the tendency of the monarchists of Europe to ? believe that they would jump with ecstacy at the 3 discovery of such a transaction in the conduct cf : republican negotiators and statesmen. They 1 would urge it forward as a reason against the es1 tablishment of republicanism and republican gogovernment, and in favor of the continuance of e monarchy in the other hemisphere, f Under this view, we respectfully call on the ad? ministration and ita public functionaries, to take 1 some proper method of showing the falsity and 5 ridiculousnes' of any respectable journal delibe? rately publishing such statements, unless they are 5 founded on exact and indisputable truth. [ Theatrical and Musical. Park Theatre.?When we entered this theatre, last | evening, we were somewhat surprised at its ?la9sio featurea. Everything seemed new, and the audience testified their pleasure by reiterated cheers, while they beheld the tasteful and elegant arrangement of the ; entire house. We recognised tome of the leading i families of this city in the boxes?among tbem, the Schuylers, Livingstons, Costers, and Van Hehaicki; t and ail the other old Knickerbocker families, who, after long absence, have once more returned to grace the r dress circle of Old T>rury with their presence. The t pit and first tier of boxes were crowded, and the other C parts were pretty well. The first piece was Shakspeare's 1 beautiful tragedy of "Hamlet," in whioh Mr. Hamblin , took tho character of tho young prince, and both read | and acted the character with the utmost dignity. He i emphasized many rentencea with such excellent good , taste and judgment, that the loudest plaudits followed their utterance. His voice is greatly restored. The 1 Qneen, by Mrs. Winstanley, was well personated, as was also the King, by Mr. Tilton. The part of Ophelia. I by Mary Taylor, was excellent, particularly in the mad scene where she sang so sweetly and plaintively, that the house rang with applause. Walcot was very happy i in the part of Laertes; and the pieoe passed off with the greatest iclat After the curtain fell, the audience called aloud for Mr. HambliD, who appeared and ad dressed them very nearly to the following effect:? | "I.sdies and gentlemen?It is now twenty-three years : since I first appeared in this city, and en this classio ground, in the character of Hamlet. Since then, I i bare frequently personated the same character, and | i have always been received in the kindest manner he a . New York audienoe: certainly, more owing to their 1 kindness and generosity than to my ability. I hare been eighteen years manager of a theatre in this city; but I confess I always had an ambltlou of being the manager of the first theatre of the Union, which I , hnve now attained, and which I consider the proudost | period of my existence; and I trust, that by untiring i zeal and exertion, in producing the most sterling ' talent of the age, to merit your support, in reviving | the legitimate drama, and making the Turk the theatre if the Union. I shall now leave you, tendering to all my best wishes for the distinguished patronage I have received Ibis evening." The dance by Signora CIor ra and ?ignor Neri followed, and was loudly cheered. Neri is an extraordinary man in his profession, and shou]<l be seen by the admirers of this beautiful accomplishment. The Tark is bound to go ahead Hambltn appenrs to-Dlght in Virginias, when, no douet. the house will be crowded. Bostst Theatric.? Quite a numerous audience was collected last night at the Rowery. on the occasion of the first performance of the new grand drama of the ' Bohemian in Paris," which was produced with much success. This drama is most interesting in its plot, though rather long ; a little pruning, how* ever, will make ibis ail right, and we cxpeot it will have a long and successful run. Winans has a " very cations" and comical character in it, nnd be nade the most of It, as lie does of every part he under: takes. The parts by N. R. Clarke, Duff, 8. and C. T. Smiths, J. M.Scott and Jordon, were well done?that by Jordon especially well?and the "Bohemans," altogether. proved to'be a most successful piece. The scenery was very good indeed, and the general arrangej meats of the stage carried out In first rate style. Previous to the drama, the funny farce of the " King's Gardener ' was played, and created much fan. ' Oatocbatd," the puzzled gardener, was nlayed by Wlnans | with much wit and humor. To-night, the same Interesting bill will be repeated. Broadway Theatre.?Kach succeeding nighty adds iu toe already uuparaueieu success or mis meagre.

Mr. Lester as Dick Dashall, perfectly understands the cutting of adash,and highly amused the audience with his handsome personation of the fop. For the benefit of the thousands who were unable to witness the performance of Mr Forrest, the tragedy of the ' Gladiator" will be repeated to-night, and again we would admonish everyone to procure tickets before night, or an entrance, even to the gallery, will be utterly impossible. Niblo'i, Astor Place.?The celebrated opera of Donizetti, 41 L'eltxir d'-dmore," was performed last evening at this flee resort of amusement, before a very crowded audience, all composed of dillettanti, who appreciated, as deserved, the unquestionable merits and real talent of Mr and Madame Laborde, as well as the musical effect produced by Signori Ueneventano and Sanquirico. Madame Laborde is decidedly the ''Jenny Lind" of America Iler sweet and cultivated voice, her admirable method, her delightful execution, are, Indeed, wonderful, and she is. undoubtedly, the best chanttuir that has come to this country since the days of the regretted Malibran. The style in which Madame L rendered the lovely musio of the Italian hHieitro. elicited much applause, and the fair canta trice deserved still more than she received. The first niia cf th? >' Legend." as well as the duo with " Nemolino," and that with " Dulcamara." were executed with a skill, a science, worthy of the high school to which Madame Laborde belongs. Slgnor Sanquirico, a*?usual. sang with great spirit the part of the -'Quack," and the scene of the "Calash" was welcomed with laughter and applause. As for M. Benoventane, his part of " Belcoro". furnished him the occasion to display the richness of his voioe. and his self love, to the greatest extent. Ildw pitiful, that with such a fine organ, this singer has not advanoed a step siase bis arrival in this country! M. Laborde, the excellent tenor, gave to his part a nature I, a truth which is generally peculiar to the French actors. His first dress, which was criticised for its simplicity, was, nevertheless, exact, as well as that of bis lady ; and it is in these exactitudes of dressing that the French comedians are unapproachable. As for his singing. M. Laborde showed, last evening, that he possesses a great tnlent In bis line, and he rendered the aria of " Una furtira lagriiua"1 with a feeling equal to that of Ruhtnl himself, who is said to be the only one who reached the purity of accentuation so necessary to all singers. The choruses fulfilled their duty very well, and the orchestra was. Indeed, faultless. In short. Ic tout entriable was worthy of the highest notice. The opera of II h arbiere di Stviglia" will be performed this eveniug. and Signora Lietti Rossi, Slgnori Rossi Corso, SftDi|iiirico, and Vletti will perform the principal parts! This short musical season at Niblo's is a very agreeable atari gout of the winter promises of M. Fry. Bi-htok'i Theatre, Chambers street.?We scarcely know with what feelings the public will reoelve the Intimation, that last night, for the twentieth time, the most attractive piece of " Dombey k Son" was performed, and performed with a vigor, in all the characters. that admits of no competition. It was received with a freshness, that in its earlier representation confirmed the public In the belief of itB pre-eminence. We trust that the present resolution of the managers, to withdraw so popular and interesting a performance, to make way for others equally attractive, is only a suspension of a piece that must ever command a reA ?.l l< P.o 1! v_ Mies Walters and M.

The Palace of Pleasure, or the Invisible Prince,"?in which Burton displayed those versatile characteristics that peculiarly belong to him, and in which we recognised with pleasure the re-appearanoe of Mrs. G. Loder, after five years suspension from a profession of which she was a distinguished ornament. The attractions of this piece are numerous, and the effective energies of the most talented orchestra in the ctty were meet harmoniously responded to by a most perfect chorus. We shall revert to this highly attractive performance again, beoausewe have only time and space to say that Brougham's benefit will take place to-night, and that he will appear in " Dombey and Son," " Jtory O'Moore," and the " Irish Patriot," characters that, if they have not. ought, to immortalize him. We will talk upon another occasion of some premonitory symptoms of future enterprise of this management, such as a sequel, and a curious one, too, of " Dombey and Son," the capture of the honest and whole souled Capt. Cuttle, the further adventures of the disappointed and wo begone Toots, and a ivariety of other embryo entertainments that must command public attention. But amidst all these anticipated recreations, let no one forget Brougham's benefit this evening. National hTheatrf.?The announcement of the new local piece of the "Mysteries and Miseries of New York," attracted a tremendous audience last evening. At an early hour in the evening the steps 1 and vicinity of the theatre were crowded; and, within a short time from the opening of the doors, the house was found to be so filled, that the further sale of tickets was stopped. Tbe interior of the house certainly presented an animated appearance?tier upon tier, all filled ; the lower circle had its due proportion of ladles, and the remainder of the house was completely filled, the lobbies as well, every inch of space, in fact, from whence even a glimpse of the stage could be had, was filled. After the farce of the " Widow's I Victim." the curtain rose for the "Mysteries;" and < the various localities, such as Broadway, Astor House, I kc , which were represented, were truly excellently done. Mose was there in all his glory, and, from the { glimpses we bad of him, seemed the same hearty b'hoy | as ever; Sykesey. too, and his extra Heraldi. were > flourishing ; and Big Lixes and Little Lizes, gamblers, flctltiou< counts, &c., were all on hand. The pieeo was well received, and, we expect, will prove the ! piece of the season. The farce of the " Wool Dealer" , concluded the performances, which will be repeated < this evening. The MonrLAisiss.?These talented dancers, whose triumph through tbe U nited States, and recently in tbe Canadas. has been so great, returned last week from their journey In that country, where they have won many laurels and much money. We understand, with great pleasure, that Mr. Hambtln, the able manager of tbe Park Theatre, which he has embellished WHO to mucn splendor, and which will be now the first theatre of the Union, has definitively secured the ' service* of Monsieur and Madame Monplalsir, as well ! as of their distinguished norpi dt ballet. The engagement was signed last Saturday between the two par- t ties, and it Is decided that the ballet of M. Monplaisir ! shall belong, for the ensuing season, to the stock of the Tark Theatre, where they will produoe, in tbo most Fplendid style, the most recent novelties which may | appear, a* we 11 In Paris as in London, at the Academies > >t Music. Among the prinoipal features of tl is en- | ;sgement we must mention the celebrated ballet of i Ksmeralda," one of the most beautiful pantomimes ind poetical conceptions ever produced on any stage, 1 in which Mine. Adile Monplaisir will appear in the sharacter of the lovely Oipsy. We are sorry to add. before terminating this paragraph, that M. Bartholomin, the distinguished inaitre dt halltl, to the able exertions of whom the public of New York and of the L'nited States are Indebted for the splendor und I (orgeous style in which the ballets of the Monplaislrs bare been'produced, is on the eve of returning to i Europe, where he is obliged to go, on account of bis sngagement in I'aris. Any how. M. B., there, as well is here, with bis talented associates, will do all in bis power to ploase the American public, and will lend directly from France, after, and before their ipptarance, if possible, the newest chorographic production* of Kurope. M. Rartholomin will leave New Ifork with the regrets of all those who have been acluainted with him. and appreciated his talents as mailt dt ballet, as well as bis kind manners and perfeot lemeanoi as a gentleman.

R ft ?M ?N T ELUtiE/HB* CASS AND BUTLER MEETING IN F A N EU I L HALL. GEN. GUSHING ON TO PLATFORM. Boston, September 4, 1848. The meeting of the democrats at Faneuil Hall,, this evening, was qu te respectable, in point ot numbers, the Hall being nearly filled. wnentne assembly was called to order, lion. Henry Crocker, ex-Collector of the port of Boston, presided, assisted by a dozen vice-presidents and half a dozen secretaries. On taking the chair, Mr. Crocker apologized lor the paucity of speakers, several who had been invited not being present. He then introduced John W. James, Bsq., who, after a few remarks, read a series of resolmions, which had been prepared for adoption. The President then announced Gen. Caleb Cushing. The annunciation of his name was received with loud applause, accompanied with a tremendous storm of hisses. Gen. Ci suing made several attempts to speak, but he could not be heard, so he stood calmly watching the tumult. The uproar lasted about a quarter of an hour, when at last the audience became quiet, and he proceeded with his remarks, which occupied about three quarters of an hour. He thought Gen. Taylor was an honest man?that he believed him to be sincere in accepting the nomination, first of the native Americans, next of the whigs, and lastly of the democrats of South Carolina, but he thousrht there could not be a no-pariy President in these days. General. Taylor did not avow his principles, and would not. On the other hand, the principles of Cass were clearly and distinctly mad>' known. He commented with much severity on the course of Van Buren, and the free soil party which had nominated him. He inquired whether the democrats would plunge themselves into that gulf of political abolitionism into which Van Buren and his party are irretrievably sunk. He lauded Casswhom the whigs called the war candidate, ana contended that he was only a war candidate so far as war was necessary to sustain the honor of the country untarnished. He concluded by saying, that the democratic party holds on its bright career, regardless of the tempter?that is, the Vail Buren partv?that crosses its path. The meeting was then addressed by Benjamin F. Hali.ett, who spoke nearly an hour; hut, before he concluded, the Hall was nearly empty. The question ot adopting the resolutions was then put and carried ; not, however, without aloud response in the negative, from the few who remained. Old Hunker State Convention?Candidate for Governor?Probable Difficulties in the Whig State Convention. Syracuse, September 4,1848. A respectable number of delegates to the Democratic (old hunker) State Convention are already in attendance Here, ueneral good humor and nnanimity prevail. The principal candidates spoken of for the office of Governor of the State are Chancellor Walworth and Hon. Horatio Seymour. It is probable that Walworth will receive the nomination. Plots for the encouragement of the division in the Whig camp'are subjects of conversation here? although these schemes are hatched at Albany. In several counties, double sets of delegates to the Whig State Convention are likely to be appointed ?one set of Clay men, and one of Taylorites. Difficulties about seats will then occur, of course ; and the Whig Convention may end in a blow updelightful to the old hunkers particularly, and amusing to the public generally. Approach of the (i rent Agricultural Kxhlblt Ion?Distinguished Strangers, Ar. Buffalo, Sept. 4, 1818. The following distinguished strangers have arrived in town, and are expected to attend the exhibition :? Hon. William Wjlkins, late Secretary of War, under President Tyler; Hon. Isaac E. Holmes, M. C., from South Carolina; Hon. Mr. Graham, formerly M. C., from South Carolina; General Persifor F. Smith ; Hon. Cave Johnson ; General Shields, and the Hon. Millard Fillmore. The attendance of eminent agriculturists, statesmen, politicians, Arc., from this and other States, is expected to be very large. Great accom modations have been fitted up ; and the exhibition, it is supposed, will prove one of the most extensive and interesting ever held in the State. Markets.
