Sheridan Knowles, the dramatist, istn such distress that his friends at trlasgow have instituted a public subscription for him I' iria has h-en visited by an early winter, and one in gr at -fy'rity. For several days last week the thermometer was far below freezing, and apprehensions were beginning to be entertained as to the ?upplv oi fuel. It is said that a marriage is on the tapis between tlie voting Carl of Leicester and one of the Ladies Laoibton, daughter of the late Kart of Durham. The "Britannia,"alluding to the church n?w question, declares that if pews were abolished, and the beggar allowed to sit or kneel near the solicitor's \vif -,no respectable person would ever go to church.

His lady obtained permission to visit him, lent him her cloak, and remained in his place. Next morning the ladv was perinitf"d to walk out unmoored, the turnkey supposing that ah had been permitted to rem.ti i with her husband, who had not then been missed. I' is said that a valuable coal mine has been discovered at Suez, and most seasonably, as the Hornbay steamers are now paying there ?-1 10s. per ton tor the commodity. The (Irkat Western Steamship Company.?The affairs of this company being in a very bad slate, at a meeting lately held, a committee of ten proprietors was appointed to confer with the directors,and report to the compiny on the state of its aliairs ? The committee having prepared its report, a special general meeting of the company was held at Bristol on Friday, ut their offices, in Prince's street, for the purpose of taking it into consideration. Mr. B. Bright, chairman of the directors, having taken the Hinir, Mr. G. Jones, chairman of the committee, r< t i the report (a copy of which had hern previously sent tothe directors, wi'h a request that it might he published for the use of the stockholders: this re-1 quest was uot, however, complied with.) The report recommended the sale of the Great Western, " the iron ship Great Britain, us she now stood,and ot th company's yards, works, and other property, and the winding up of the concern. Mr I Cunningham having moved a resolution in accordance with the committee's report, it led to a verv long and stormy discussion ; and in answer to various que.-tionsput to the chairman, it was elicited that of the ?170.000 subscribed capital, there was due on calls 17,000. The liabilities of the company were stated to be . 22,818, and deducting the 17,01)0 unpaid calls, it left a balance against the company of (>,818. The entire cost of the steam-ship Great Western was stated to he (51.671, while the estimate cost of the Great Britain would be 100,000. Loud complaints were made <>t the extravagant management of the company's aflairs; Captain llosk?m being paid, as it was said, at a very much higher rate thaa anv of the captains of the Itoyal Mail Company, and it being suggested that the salaries of .Mr. Cuppy, one of the directors and manager o( the works, tor which he received ?500 per annum, and ofCapitain Claxton, managing director, for which lie w as pai I ?300 per annum,might be saved. It was ilso tai-'d iliat tlieyard and implements hud cost about ?60,000, while the company had on y been offered a very reifuced sum for it, and that the highest bona lide bidding lor the Great Western, at the late sale, had been ?17,"MtO. It was, however, stated in I us! ifieation for the expenditure at the yard, that no person would undertake the building of the Great Rrit tin, and that it was therefore necessary to erect machinery of their o wn, and it was stated that Mr Gappy neted as engineer. It was also stated that the < <reat Western herself had paid 64 per cent. V counter resolution was proposed on the part of t ic directoiate. and very ably udvocaied by the chairman, and ultimately adopted in a modified form by ilia meeting. Tbe resolution was to the ellect? th-p the directors should be eni|>owered to raise ?'2ii,<K)d on tli- seeurity of the company's property; tie- < beat Britain should be sold at a sacrifice; mid that the Great Western should continue her voyages lo New \ ork as usual, unless sold in the meantime to advantage. The meeting then separated. Fokkkjm Cath.k ant> Provisions.?The importation of foreign cattle and salted provisions is increasing, and th^re is every reason to expect that tlii< will become a verv great trade. Hull, which ia so conveniently situate with regard to Hamburg, the chief place for the importation of the former, and Liverpool for the latter. The number of cattle imported into Hull alone has now increased to about '1M head a week, and it will increase steadily, ud ultimately become very large The countries from which live cattle have been received tip to the ; re- -nt time are Holstein, Hanover, Holland, Bel;ium. France and Spain. The places from which .salted provisions have been received are the Fnited States, Canada, Hamburg, and Archangel; in Kusnia | reparations are also making to send large quantise front Buenos Ayres. This trade also promises to become one of great extent, although the quality of the greater part of the salt meat yet imported is inditrerent, and the mode of preparing it is had. If, however, the Americans and others can improve the quality of their meat as much as they have improved the quality of their cheese, some of which is now equal to excellent Cheshire, the demand fur it will Iv immense. Even now it is bought up eagerly, not because it is very good, but because it is much better tlian none nt all. Owing to this competition, and perhaps to other causes, the price of ineat has fallen at least a |>enny u pound in Liverpool, nnd is i.s low as ;t has been for many years?Lttvr/W Timtu. A correspondent of the London Chronicle gives in analysis of the Reports of the Poor Law Commissioners, from which it appears that there has been a frightful increase ot poverty. The letter is addressed to Sir R obert Pee! The Chronicle savs: It will be seen that the increase in 1810 and 18-11, as compared with 1*517 and 1H38. both in amount oi rate and in number of paupers, has her n principally in the agricultural districts. High prices are still tnore ruinous to the agricultural luborer than to the manufacturer and artiz in, because, in his best times he is always on the verge of starvation. Rut the most alarming part of the exhibition is the extraordinary addition to the able adult population in our workhouses. What will 1812 exhibit ? Kranee. In addition to tbe previous troubles of the present Ministry, a new oi>|>osition appears to he progressing, of which M. de Salv.indv is to be the leader in the < Miamber of Deputies, assisted by M. de Lamartine, der th< direction of Count M-le. "It is-nid," adds the Vational. "that this party will command 30 votes in tlie Chamber of Deputies, and nre determined to give a strong opposition to the Government in conjunction with M. Thiers' friends and the other fractions of the ancien' opposition." It is added that th? Cabinet is much shaken by the appearance of tins new enemy, which would presen' j'self with tne pretensions to arrange all questions ol internal and external mlicy upon which the present Ministers are said to sleep. Spain. The Constitutional of Rarcelona states that a lieutenant ot the rebelCabecillaGrau bad presented himse f to th'* authorities of Vich, and claimed the benefit of the amnesty. He likewise tendered his services to the Government, which were accepted, and be was actually s>nt out with a detachment of troops to w >ur the d.strict ofTaradell, which was infested by his former coni|>anions. Another of the rebels n inied Pedro Mir V ucarre, was executed at Orver\t on the Q.i*cn's birthday, to the annoyance of th- uiberal population of the town. According to a letter front Girom of the 14th inst., it was the intention of General /.urhanu to grant an amnesty to all the individuals detained in the prisons of the province for having given shelter or assistance to the rebels. A Paris letter repeats that M Sulamgnca had from the ex-Queen Regent nearly unlimited power to negotiate with the house of Rothschild a loan of Wf.noO.tlOO roils. The matte' will not, however, be decided until the meeting rtf the Cortes. The Madrid journals of the 7th art- alive on the fn(>|ert of a commercial treaty with England. The M idritl Eco of" the 8th expresses considerablefears of an impending dissolution of the Cortes, and deprecate* such a measure. Turkey. letters from Constantinople of the 27th ult. confirm the previous accounts of the recognition of the new Prince of Servta, and announce that the firman for the disposal of the reigning PrinCe of Watlachia, hadtieen forwarded to Bucharest. Advices from Alexandria to the 21th ultimo, reiterate the fact ot the Syrian revolt. This news appears to have convinced the British comma nder inchief inthe Mediterranean of ihe necessity of send ing a naval force once more to the East. The Ilowe, with the flag of Sir F Mason, was to bend sails for Sala urn on the 7th, rind the Inconstant and Vanguard were to follow immediately.

We have received advu es Irom Sydney, New ^ - - -1 IWPMg? South Waif.-, to the 18th of June, which re|iort favorably of the progressive amelioration of trade in those colonies. The iinportatinn ol goods was foilin? of] to an extent that had never been anticipated Very large sales of manufactured goo.fs had been ellecled, and the market had an improved tendency. The Corn Market, however, was rather flat. Advices have been received Iro n the Oai>e ol 1 'ood Hope on the 9th September, by which we (earn that -uecrsht s achieved bv Lieut. Col. Cloete, iu tile pacification of the Boer-, had collet lorih the warmest commendation of Sir George Napier.? The public had aKo testified ihcir anxiety to ac knowledge tin* service rendered to their country, by presenting Mr. ('leote with a piece of plate. The proceeding* on the frontier, however, are scarcely viewed in so satisfactory a light The Lieut. Governor ?vas on a visit to tin* chiefs in Caftrelund, to bring ihem to terms res|iecting the loss ol 21H0 head <>f cattle and 2U) horses, stolen from ihe tronlier farmers since April last. Il is hinted that he will not be successful, and Ironi the statements quoted ol the inarm*r in which the duels waived their responsibility in tlie business, it ap|>ears doubtlul whether they will not be inclined to resist any attempt which may he made to enforce compliance. An open outbreak is not expected ; the Natal expedition is held to be a b'sson too recent to have escaped the ob:ervation of the Caffres. China* In China since the atrival of reinforcements, ?ir Henry Pot tinker appears to go en with considerable vigor; and although the war is in soP'-e respec's called t "buccaneering expedition" by the buccaneers themselves, it begins to assume rather a formidable aspect. After the utter destruction of the Chaooo. with all its batteries, magazines, public building's,arms, and ammunitions, was effected, tlie expedition entered the great river Yang-tse-Keang, and at daylight in the niori ing of the lbth ot June anchored before formidable fortifications on the shore In two hours the batteries of the enemy were silenced, when our seamen and marines landed, and before the troops could be disembarked, out of them and captured the guns. On tlie 19th the city of Shanghai submitted to the British after a gallant resistance, when its public buildings were immediately de troyed, and granaries given up to the pillage of the nutives. ?uoh is Hie stale ?l affairs in China, and much dissatisfaction is now expressed in this country with the entire proceedings in the East. All parties heartily wish for a settlement of uffairs both in India una China. The progress and result of the conflict is published in an official circular, by her Majesty's Plenipotentiary in China, from which we condense as follows: After destroying the batteries, magazines, and barracks, and other public buildings, as well as ordinances, arms and ammunition; the troops were reembarked, and the expedition quitted their post. The Chinese authorities had erected immense lines of works to defend the entrances ol both rivers and seem to have been so confident of their ability to re|iel us, that they permitted a very close reconnoitanreto be made in two of the small steamers by their Excellencies the Naval and Military Commanders-in-Chief on the 1 Ith inst. ; and even cheered and encouraged the boats which were sent in the same night to lay down buoys to guide the ships of \vhr to their allotted positions of attack. It appears almost miraculous that the casualties should not have been much greater, considering how well the Chinese served their guns. The Blonde frigate had fourteen shot in her hull; the Sesostris steamer eleven ; and all the shsps engaged more or less. The loss on the part of the enemy is supposed to have been about eighty killed, and a proportionate number wounded. " On the fifth two more batteries close to the city of Slutiioh-ii .i itnpnpfl tfit?ir fTitn?4 nn the HfivflnPHri division of the light squadron. but, on receiving a couple of broadsides, the Chinese fled, and the batteries, which contained 48 guns, 17 of thetn brass, were instantly occupied, and the troo|?took possession of the city, where the public buildings were destroyed, and the extensive government granaries given to ihe people. " The Chinese high officers and troops are supposed to have lied in the direction of the cities of Soochow, Wangohoofoo, and Nankin. The results of this victory have been remarkable. The Mandarins in the two most fertile provinces of China, were dreadfully alarmed lest Wang chowFooand Nankin should be taken and sacked, and the mouth of the great canal seized. They sent a living express for a son or some other relation ol the Howqua, the old Hong merchant of Canton, in order to interpret between them and the English.? Tltey exhibited a wish to make terms, but whether with the object of merely gaining time, does not appear certain. The approach of the expedition to the mouth of the great canal, and the dangers that threaten Nankin, would, it was thought, induce the Emperor to in .ke an equitable arrangement, but doubts were, Hill entertained of his being rxa tly informed ot the truth. The efforts of the Chinese authorities to make re:-istance have hitherto been very great. A proclamation issued by the Emperor in the beginnitig of June, breathes most decided hostility to the " barbarians," but does not brag of the valor of his generals and soldiers. This proclamation, it ought to be remarked, is dated prior to the uttack on Shang-hai. India. The lirst event worthy ol notice (hat occurred after the departure of the Acadia, on the 4th ins ant, was the arrival of the Overland Mail from India and China, the news by which was received in London on Sunday week, and which is not unimportant, inasmuch as we are informed ot two impor ITllli movements mailt: i;y me duii?ii irwupa, auu me clearing up of the doubts that previously extsted as to the line ol policy intended to be pursued by Lord Ellenborough Candubas was finally evacuated by General Nutt on the 8th ol August, alter all the spare Commissariat and arsenal stores were destroyed, and the powder magazine blown up. The force consisted of about 17,000 men, with twentvone guns of various calibre. These took the way to Guznee, accompanied by about the same number of camp followers. The supplies were sufficient for forty days, and transported by about 8,000 camels, besides bullocks and usees, the whole train covering a space of twelve miles This division was destined to take the place of the unfortunate garrison of Cabul The distance ... S..1...1 in ...u n,?i . ;>... . o.,?i ii,?? had accomplished 150 miles, and arrived ai Mookool. i Jeneral England also left Caudahar on the 8th, and proceeded towards Queitali with 1,000 troops, and rump followers, including the sick and wounded ot" the army, and nearly 10,0(*l beasts of burthen. At Quel tali they were to remain till the 10th of September, and then gradually move down the Holan Pass in separate divisions. At Jellabad, General Pollock had begun his moves towards Cabul, and reached Gundnmunk on the 23d of August. Mahotned Akbar is said to have heen so much enraged by the report of General Pollock's advance while treaties were pending, as to murder Captain Troup with his own hand, but this obtains no credit. Another rumor worthy ot mention is, that Abkar lvltan had tied with all his prisoners front Cabnl to Hamee-an. where he intended to confine them in an accessible lort nearly seventy miles distant. The cholera had made its npjwarance among the British troops, and many had died The mercantile newt brought by the Overland Mail is disheartening in every respect. European goods were selling at various prices, and the trade of the country was uot sufficient to employ the numerous ships that had arrived out seeking employment, manv of which would not earn enough to pay the wages of the sadors.

Rochdale?A fair demand for goods, at low prices. In the wool market, the dealers complained of having little to do; the manufacturer purchases as if he expected low prices, and indeed this article is better to buy than it was a short time ago.

The wool market is very quiet, the attention of the trade being directed to the approaching sales in Liverpool and London. Halifax?There is no decided change in the market, either as to demand or prices, and but little doing on foreign account. Bradford?In merinos little doing. The fancy trade continues extremely low, and many manufacturers are abandoning the profitless business. Astwerf, Nov. 7?Colfee continues to be in little or 110 qreuest, and during the last eight dnys no sales worth reporting occurred.

Raiivn Vnv 4 ? Since the last fortnivlit business with us went from bad to ? orso, in which, however, there ii nothing to wonder at, as at the present *ea?on of the year there is a stagnation felt in all mercantile attain. Most of our Print manufacturers have ceased to work. Cotton Twist, it is true, remains dear, but meets with little demand. Calicoes, as long as printed Roods find no buyers, most necessarily continue in the samo neglected state? Alsatia Calico, however, which had declined to 41c, has got up again to 42, at which price some important sales were effected. Hambvku, Nov. 4?Brazil Coffee this week was in active request, and 7000 bags Rio found buyers, ordinary at 3} to3jsch, good ordinary colored at 3 13-t?ths to 4J.1, tine ordinary at 4(d to 4Jd, and fine, fine ord. at 4|d to 5jdj 400 boss old Lnguayra 4$ obtained-, and new fine fine ord. 6 to 6{sch.

Caloutta, Sept.P.?British Co'ton Piece Goods.?The sales in many of our leading staples have been very heavy ; the pressure for money, however, and the want of rain in th" upper provinces, have caused a further depres sion, and, with unusually large cargoes on the way, still lower prices maj he fairly anticipated. White Longcloth and Shirtings are down 1 to 4 annas, wi h a certainty, as the up country season draws nearer to a close, of declining still further Gray Shirtings have again been sold largely at a further reduction of 4 to 6 annai ; 40 inch 60 to 64 reeds cannot now be i|uoted at more than 4 10 to 4-14 Company's rupees per piece.

' ?w York, Thursday, December 8, 1*44. The President'* Meiit){e, The Second Annual Message of President Tyler Mill be lou:.d at length in this morning's Herald. By some trick or contrivance, at this moment inexplicable, the copies designed for us were not received. We were, however, promptly furnished by a friend with the means of defeating the aim of this petty piece of malice. The Message was delivered to Congress at twelve o'clock yesterday, and reached this city by Government Express, about half past 10 at nigh'. Of its contents, we shall s|>cak hereafter. Public Dinner to General Lewla Cum, by the Americans In Paris. We have received by the Columbia steamer,from our correspondent in Paris, a full report of the splendid dinner, given by the Americans in Paris, to Gen. f^ewisCass, on the termination of his displomatic mission at the Court of St. Cloud, and on the eve of his return to the United .States. Is there to be no public dinner got up to the General in New York! The following is the report DiNNrR to Gkkbrai, Cass. General Ca.s^, the American minister, left Paris on JM'urday. 12th Nov , for the United Slates, by way of London He hud a special audience of his Majesty at 12 o'clock on the same day, to take leave. On Fridav, the General received the compliment of a grand entertainment, got up hy his fellow citizens in Paris as an esjiecial mark of their personal respect, and of their approbation of his official conduct as minister to the court of France. [ The dinner was given at the Trois Frferes Proveneuux, and did great honor to the renown of that establishment. The following is the bill of fare :? Dinner Gives to Gctiini. Cm nr the Citi/eni or the United Stitiv. at ihe Thois Krerei Provencalx. tne united states,' ana tne ivtng oi inerrencn. had been drunk, Mr. Beasly gave the toast in honor of General Cass, by the following appropriate remarks :? Mr. Bciilt rose and saiJ:?How has it come to pass, gentlemen,that I have been called to preside at this festive board, when I see so many around me, so much fitter to occupy this chair? I doubtless owe this honor more to the partiality of some kinds friends among you, than to nn> merit of my own; and I have accepted it, partly in this belief, and partly induced by the occasion, so gi atelul to my own heart. Let me trust, then, that, if a friendly partiality has placed me here, a friendly indulgence will be extended to the deficiencies which 1 may here betray. It is needless for me to remind you. gentlemen,that we have come here, without distinction ot party, to testify our affectionate respect for our distinguished guest, General Cass, who has asked laave of our Government to return home. His long stay among us has taught u* to knew his value; and makes us regret the more, our separation?I will not say our lost ?for all, fellow-citizens?all having the same home?we may hope to meet him again. But besides the respect and affection of bis countrymen, General Cass has enjoyed not only tho highest consideration of this Court, but the general esteem of this community. Here, then, gentlemen, his absence will be felt, and considered a loss. The post of Minister at Paris anJ London is not sufficiently understood in our country. Our relations involving such a variety of interests, it is important that our Ministers at these posts should bo. like iaithful sentinels, always on the qui vivt I And American ministers are obliged to be on the alert, in a degree far beyond the usual duty of the Representatives of otliur powers, not only from their distance from home, but from the economical scale of our public service, which withholds those means and facilities that make European Diplomacy comparatively easy ; and, gentlemen, from the latter case we have seen, that the service of these two ports has generally impaired the private fortunes of our ministers ; for, and I am proud so say it, they have not counted the cost themselves, of a proper representation of their country. These are posts, then, of difficulty, responsibility, and personal sacrifice. How General Cass has filled his, need I ask you, gentlemen 1 I am sure I need not?for, present, or absent, you have all been attentive observers of so important a representation of your country's interest and honor. Of the manner in which the ordinary duties ofthe office have been fulfilled, I believe, then,that here and elsewhere,there has been but one opinion. But, gentlemen, not long sinco, there devolved upon our distinguished guest, an extraordinary duty ; and OS (Km noernrmanau nfthnt <lntv rarrvinv him na it ni/i hp. yond the line of diplomatic action established by the usage of old governments, has brought him under observation, 1 shall take the liberty of briefly alluding to the eccasion ; confident as I am that it was one, most fortunate for his own reptration, most auspicious to our country's welfare. It was an occasion requiring original conception, calling for original action-one where a timid minister, retiring within diplomatic usages, would have waited lor instructions?would have hesitate I?would have lost the occasion of serving his country ! But General Cass, gentlemen, was equal to the occasion He saw that, at such an emargency, his course of action was not to follow precedents and rulea, however sanctioned by ' timehonored" usage. These were well enough for governmrnts contiguous to each other ; hut he was three thousand miles from his instructions, and the case was urgent. H>* felt, then, that the case made its ewn rule ; that hi-i circumstances defined his duty?and he looked to his duty with the enlarged view ol a Minister Plenipotentiary ?he law France on the point of committing herselt to a policy which would change our relations with her? which might make us enemies ; and he believed her government did not see her danger. He, therefore, ftlt hound to warn, and even protest, against a step tending to disturb the peace of two great nations ; the one our ancient friend and ally?the other, our own; represented by him with plenary powers. Under such circumstances General Cass ac'.ed. Gentlemen, the professed object of the policy in which France was going te become a party, was well addressed to the ardent sympathies of a generous nation ; but our minister saw its danger. He rang'out the alarm, and alter the tocsin was sounded?why then, gentlemen, every body saw the fire! Gentlemen, our distinguished guest is now about to withdraw from the Diplomatic service, retiring upon the onlv |*nsion known to our laws, the approbation of his dissatisfied with the pay. Let u? trust it will he such, and in such measure, aa we now mete out to him, in the pride and fulness of our hearta. I thank vou, gentlemen, lor the patience with which you hare liatened to my humble voire on thiaorcaaion. Mr.Busly then gave, " Honor toourdirtinguished gnert ; may he return in wilety to a grateful country." This toast was received by three times three enthusias'ic cheers, and onj cheer more. General Cass returned thanks in a speech replete with good taste, in which he touched upon the subject ot the Quintuple Treaty, as follows Oasiral Caaa rose and aaid:?I thank you, Mr. Presldent, for the too kind aentimenta you bare been pleased to espreaa towards me; and I thank my fellow citizens, whose organ yon hare been, forthe distinguished proof ol their esteem which their presence and this occasion furnish ire. It is a testimonial which 1 shall cherish aa one of the proudest incidents of a life of almost forty yeara derotrd to the public serrice, and chequered by many riscisaitudes in peace and war. This is its closing scene; i and I now return, to pass what remains to me of time in 1 comparative obscurity. I sm well awsre that during my career I hare accompliahed little to deserve the consideration of my countrymen at home, or the estimate you have been pleased to lorm ol my serrices abroad.

Mr. Bkasly, the American Consul at Havre, in consideration ol his great age, long residence in France, was invited to take the chair, and discharged the duties of his post to the entire satislaction of his countrymen. After the " President of it? ihaeuoo signal cause of reproach,while its profession is but the exercise of a duty. Events to which you ha?e Just alluded, called upon me recently to interpooe in the name of our country by a Jecisire measure, to prevent the establishment of a maraiime pretension, which would have been as injurious to our interests in its execution as it was insulting to our honor in its enunciation. This attempt to gain the dominion oi the seas has failed, as every ittcmpt will, I trust, hereaftar fail. An American representative encounters little hasard in asserting the ju>t claims of his country. He w ill find a response, as 1 hartdone, in the hearts of his countrymen, and reward in their approbation, which Governments can neither give nor take away. We, who have put the ocean between ourselves and our native land, can, in my opinion, best appreciate the bleating! which Providence hat conferred ' upon our beloved country. Withou4 aeeking to decry t' e institutions of the old world, or to deacribe ita condi tion at worse than it it, no American can fail to be struck by the immenae superiority, in all the elemeuta of human happineaa which our confederated Republic presents over the eastern hemisphere. He who leavea our shores for a residence abroad, and does not return a wiser and a better citizen, will have looked upon life with as little wisdom at profit. The questions social and political, which agitate these long and dsnaely populated regions, are questions of lite and death. Antagonist principles are in contact, liable at any moment to break into fierce action, and which in their operation may, and probably will atTect the whole frame of society. Changes may come, which can only he produced by desperate struggles between those who hold and those who seek the power?between those who have much and those who have nothing ?between want and misery striving for existence, and wealth and power striving for defence. Happily for usi this state of things is unknown in our country. We are indeed, divided into parties ; and this, perhaps, is one of the conditions of the preservation of freedom. But we have no organic destructions by which classes are created and maintained. We have no physical misery, nor political oppression, to array one portion of the community againit another, and to teach it to seek relief in the destruction of existing institutions. Our questions, indeed, are debated with a zeal which proves that all are in earneat, and that they result from honest differences of opin. ion respecting persons and principles; and sometimes, unfortunately, with a bitterness which calm patriotism may well deplore. But, after all, they pass away, leaving unharmed the institutions of the country, and exhibiting but in bolder relief the strength of our political system, and the wisdom and energy of public opinion. And it is good while we are here together in these old regions of rank and distinction, to recall one of the most beautiful traits of our whole system ef government, of which 1 am myself a practical illustration ; and that is, the perfect equality which is the very foundation of our constitution; an equality which opens all the avenues of advancement to the whole community, and leaves success or failure to the exertions of each. That this principle should be dear to me, you will at once believe, when I tell you that it is now between forty and fifty years since I crossed the mountains on foot, without patronage, and powerful family conneations? a young adventurer in that region, then so wild and solitary?now beaming with life and liberty. And whatever services 1 have been able to render, and with whatcrer rewards these have been greatly overpaid, I owe all to this life-giving principle?to this great test and preservative of our Republican Institutions. Still, my friends, there is obviously one want in our country?one lesson to be learned, which would do more to unite and render us happy, than any measure proposed by any party as a remedy for evils felt or anticipated?and that is, a just appreciation of our condition?a deep-felt realization of the great blessings we enjoy?a conviction that the sun never shone upon a land more favored by Providence?and that all those subjects of discussion whish divide us, important as they are, never can justify the fierco animosity to which they often give birth, but that thev sink into insignificance, when nlaced in the balance against all that God has done Tor us, to make us a happy people This lesson is well learned abroa by comparing what we have left with what see around us ; and I trust we shall carry it back with us, as a precious acquisition, influencing our conduct and opinions for liie. Permit me to conclude by offering you a sentiment, in which I am sure you will all cordially join. Our Ifativt Country /?Still nearer, the farther we are separatedjrom it. This was drank most enthusiastically. The following are the remainder of the toasts:? Toasts. 4. The Army and Navy oftho United States. A. The memory of Washington. fl. The memory of Lafayette. 7. Peace with all nations, entangling alliances with none, tor any end, holy or unholy. 3. The sovereignty of the seas, common to all nations, but exclusive under every flag. Between 80 and 90 gentlemen were seated at the long table, at the centre of which their guest was placed, while a side room was filled by others who could not be otherwise accommodated. But the conveniences of the locality, however, were altogether too limited for the occasion, as a great number of American gentlemen who desired to join in this testimonial of regard for their retiring minister, were excluded for want of room. We believe this is the first occasion in which Americans of all parties, from all parts of the confederacy, have united in Paris in bestowing so great an honor on any public man. We are bound to say, that the whole bearing of the illustrious statesman who has been the object of this signal honor, has been such during his long stay in Paris, as to have commanded the unqualified respect and esteem of all who have had the honor of his acquaintance. We have reason to believe also, that the sentiments of regard so universally entertained towards General Cass, have been fully participated in by his Majesty Louis PhiI" * ~II L.. <U. ?A L i:|i{>r, wcu ti? uy uic nuuisins ui jiis K"vc?? ment. Arrivai. op thk Vandai.ia at Niotort.?It is with pleasure we announce the arrival of the U. S. ship Vandalia, William Ramsey, Esq., Commander, at Newport. She entered that port last Saturday, in fifty-seven days passage from Cape Palmas, Africa. It is recollected that we ^ported her off Sandy Hook several days ago. It appears that previous to putting into Newport she had been ten days on the coast, contending with the heaviest westerly gales that ourpilots remember ever to have experienced,and vainly endeavoring to get into New York?that she has been twice blown off when within sight of Sandy Hook, and, finally, being without supplies of any d* seription. having been on half allowance since she left Cape Palmas, more than a third of her crew ill. and scarcely any part fit for duty, was compelled to seek shelter in New port, the only harbor on our coast that can be entered with a northwest gale. rProm the Rhode Inlander. Dec. 6 1 This nohle ship entered our port under a national salute, which was promptly responded to by the Commander of Fort Adams. The Vandalia was nlso in the late tremendous S. E gale which has done so much damage along the line ol our coast; at that time not more than twenty miles distant from the Hook, a situation on alee shore made more than embarrassing by the reduced state of the crew, and the effects ol weather so intansely cold upon men so recently from such a climate as that of the coast of Africa. The services ot this ship, here and abroad, judging from what we hear from those on board, liave been exceedingly arduous, and the suffering proportionately great. Her appearance, however, in the absence of other testimony, abundantly shows that she has gone through no light or trifling work, on this or the African coast. n... i? :i.j r it a : ? \m ivapittin ivwiiimiv miiicu iruiu uic u. o. in mny last, charged with the important and delicate duty of protecting our mercantile marine on the Coast of Africa from the violation of British cruisers, which had a short time previously frequently invaded the righta of our flag, under the now repudiated claim of the right of search. The Vandalia, we learn, has examined that coast, from Gambia to Grand Barebv, without the sight of a slaver, or hearing of a single instance of molestation of our flag, by British cruisers. Captain Ramsay confirms the report of the destruction by the Hereby nation of the Ann Carver, and the murder of her entire crew by the natives. Every effort was made to punish the tribes concerned in the Uestrui tion of the Ann Carver, by the despatch, first, of a merchant vessel wiih a part of the Vandatia's crew, and followed up by the presence of the ship, hut the towns were abandoned, the peop e gone to the jungles, and beyond pursuit. The Vaudaha lost but one man whilst on the coast of Africa. The following is the list of officers on board the Vandalia:? William R<m?ay, E?qr., Commander. Lieutenants.? Charles H. Poor, Jobi lL.

M. \ The Senate is still without a quorum, several of the southern and wert-tn senators being 8 ill absent. Tha roads at the west, particularly the other side of Columbus, Ohio, are in such a state that the travel has become very dangerous, and portions of the route have even been travelled by some of the members on loot. This will account for the absence of several, us most of the members from Kentucky, Tennessee, ?Vc. come by this route, owing to the navigation of the Ohio being wholly obstructed. The House had a rich treat this morning, and for a short time there was a slorious orosoect of fun ? In my letter of yesterday, I mentioned that Mr. Everett, of Vermont, had given notice of a re olution which he intended to offer, rescinding the 21st rule, so as to admit abolition petitions. This was a mistake, as Mr. Adams waa the author of the whole, and entitled to all the credit. Thi'a morning, after the journal waa read Mr. Adams rose, and offered his resolution, which brought Mr. Wise to hia feel, and for a moment every one expected to see some magnificent demonstrations which would throw into the shade everything that has yet been heard on the subject of southern nigserv, whiggery and chivalry. Mr. Wise, however, was discreet, and did nothing except protest against the reception of the resolution, owing, probably, to his having a bad c dd, hut looked daggers at the old bov from Massachusetts. He contended thxtthe resolution was not in order, inasmuch as the object of it was to produce disorder, but the Speaker thought diff rently. and Mr. Wise gave wav, whereupon little Mr. Weller, from Ohio, moved it be laid upon the table, which was determined in the negative. 85 voting in favor of it, and 93 against it. Mr. Botts, of Va., recording hia name among the noes?a singular movement?indicating that Mr. B. is ready for any aortof a law thatpromi?*?? tn vi*?IH nnlitirnl nnnitnf The previous question on the resolution was then moved bv Mr. Everett of Vermont, and the House sustained it, by a vote of 84 in the affirmative and 71 in the negative. The question on the final adoption of the resolution then came up, when the vote stood 81 in favor of its adoption and 91 against it. So the resolution was lost. While it was pending, you have no idea of the sensation that prevailed in the House, which was heightened by the course that a portion of the de- S mocratic delegation from New York took upon the subject, all of them, with the exception of vour friend Fernando Wood, who goes for the death for Ca'houn and chivalry, voting against laying it on the table. Thete is something in all this. Now v err on a. There will be a singular intermingling of political partieshere during theses-inn. The Captain begins to fear that little Van of Kinderhook is getting too strong, and will get soma of the whig votes. He is hu?y, therefore, making out a candidate for the whigs, as it will never do to let them go for Van Buren. General Scott, they say, will be the man; and to create some sympathy for him, the office he holds is to he abolished as a useless nope ad age to the government, that can be very easily dispensed with. Your old correspondent Parmalee is here, watching for smugglers. Several exquisites and fashionables, ol the first water, too, have arrived, ol whom you shall have due notice. BANKRUPTCY AND CAITATN JOHN TYLER'S OFFICIALS.?It will be seen by the list of applicants for the benefit of the act, in this day's paper, that R edwood Fisher, Esqr., thedistinguishedjcaptain of the " guard" in New York, is an applicant for one of those certificates of distinction, dispensed by the liberality of Judge Betts of the United States Court.

Can any body tell us on whose recommendation Captain Tyler was induced to appoint such men, on such principles 1 Fifty dollars reward will be given for the information, and a knife and plate in the Kitchen Cabinet for six months, three days, five hours and twenty-five minutes, exactly. Thanks and Prayers.?About two millions of people in this State and New Jersey, will offer up prayers to day for the many blessings confeired on them in the past year, tn the shape of "two dollars a day and roast beef." Business in Wall street will be suspended, the banks will cease discounting, the brokers stop shaving, and those who have roast turkeys will eat them. We shall publish a paper as usual to morrow morning, with the latest news from all parts of the world, particularly from Washington.
