The scene of the present aff ur was Rimini, and a glance hi another column will show that it w.ts wretchedly devised, and miserably carried out The Ports journals ?naounee another isolated and ill-eunirived attempt to bring about a revolution in (lie States of the Church. It appears mat, on the 2liri of September, an insurrection broke out at Rimini, in which certain ol the inhabitants, and some Spanish and Piedmontese refugees were im plicated On the night of the 24th about one hun dred of these refugees landed near Ktmini. The insurgents immediately proceeded lo the tort of San i.?eo, situated at a short distance trom the town, and in which they are supposed to have had partisans. They penetrated into the fort, and set at liberty th? political prisoners, who were verv numerous They next entered Rimini, where tbey stopped the courtiers, and carried oil the despatches. ?The Cardinal Kegate of Fork immediately sent troops to Rimini. On the 7th, at their ap proauh, the insurgents, who, without doubt had i found uo support in the people of the town und en Vi;on?, hastily quilttd Rimini, alter abandoning . the't urras ; -onie of them re-embarked, the others took refuse in the mount una It does not api?ear ih-it auv cthrr movement whatever took place throughout the Legations; but the tact his ett cit u the attention of the authorities, end also the Government of Milan On the report of the attempt j re iching Marshal Rndetzki, the commander of die Austrtun forces, he re-intorced the garrison of Fer rara. and die p(p,,l Government hud ordered the gtrris in of Ancoua.tobc strengthened, and the coasts str ctly wuteheJ. The volunteers hud been called < it, and every preparation made lor acting with vi gor against the insurgents. The Coiittilufumnfi says that there was at Ru venna, on the 24th, a severe battle between the |>e<? i le and the 6?i:-* Guards of the Pope, which lasted five hours, during which cannon, charged with grape shot, swept the streets, by which many were tilled Tn? gives the same news, but adds ?hat it requires coBiirmatiou; tor although such an account had been sent by courier luto all the lega tions, vet that a second courier whs afterwards de spatched by die Cardinal Legale of Pesaro, stating that ail Was tranquil. Colonel Fradlli, Chief ot the Military Tribunal, had been sent to Rimini. The Vatican vmaps Railroads.?The Gazttta Halt anna, t print published at Paris, mentions three decrees w hich. it alleges, have been recently issued by the Pope. The firm prohibits the construction of any description of rail'oad in the Pontifical domin ions; by the second, ah the Pope's subjects are pro nbited trom attending any scientific congress; and the third orders all physicians not to attend such pa ' tits after their third visit, who shall not have re r ived the sacrament. Rntaln and Clrcnssln. .etter- fr? m Odessa confirm the accounts of the verse: ?: cnenced hv the Russians in the Dag "ai! i tie army of Prince Woronzo iiad airived Gcr.-ai, a fortress on the extreme frontier of the ' aucasus. Accounts from Constantinople to the 17th ultimo mention a general belief that a second battle had been fought between the Russians and Circassians, in e. uch the former were defeated. The particu rs are thus stated" Scltamtl, the gallant and ac ?ive leader of the Circassians, unex|>ectedly attack he Russians in their camp, and after a short but ? b'oody struggle Count Woronzoff w as forced .: in to retreat, in order to reach a more favora tile position. This he appears to have effected, hut in the retreat he lost an immense number of men. The number of men killed is not ex actly known, but it may be judged from the fact that 160 officers have jierished, among whom were one general officer, two of Count Woronzotl's aides-de camp, and an aide-de-camp of General Cluck. The Circassians aLo got possession of four pieces of ar tillery, Hnd the greater portion of the Russian stores and ammunition. The Circassians, after this victo ry, committed great excesses. They ravaged the country, destroyed the villages, unci carried oil a great number ot the inhabitants to the mountains as prisoners. Count Woronzotf reached Tiflisonthe 3rd of September with the shattered remains of his simy. L'-tter? from St. Petersburgh ot the 23J it!t., de rcribe ? sanguinary conflict between tne Russian 'Jivi'ion under General Schwartz and the Lesghts h appears that alter having severely chastised the *i ;iige ot Tasell, which at all times has distinguieh ed used by its invincible energy, the General ivarched oa the 1 lib August towards Auzuch mid Kapuclnn. The former place, when summoned, replied that it would only yield at the last extremi ty K-tpuchtn, wfich has been reinloreed by the s'trroutioing population, was also placed in a lorint dable state <1 defence Hardly had the Russian eauguard beg in to display the first tiles ot its battalions, when the mountaineers, under the shelter of the entrenchments which they had made upon all the elevated points, be gin to roll down enormous stones upou the igeressors. This proceeding threw disorder into the ranks, and wounded a great number ol men TTie Russians were beginning to give way, but at th -voice ol their officers they again rushed i Tiperilously to combat. At length, after extraordi oary eflorts, they succeeded in taking possession of the entire chain ol hills and fortified mounts, with the exception of one position, frorn which a dreadful fire of musketry was kept up. This point could not be carried until the following day. The Circassians old not abandon it until they were at the last extre mity, and then, as at Dargo, they retired in good order, leaving about 100 dead behind them. The Russian troops displayed rare intrepidity in this af- | tn.-, but the result is not of a nature to compensate the check of Prince Wororizow at Dargo. Famine in Russia.?The Coui rter Fran^ai* pub lishes the lollowing letier from Kontgsburg, ot the 18th ot S-p'ember:?" Famine is much more se- i verely felt upon the Russian frontier than in our neighborhood. Hundreds of Russian iieasants, driven by hunger, cross the frontier, and plunder | our fields. In order to prevent these acts of spoli ation, the government will be obliged to station troops in that quarter. If the Russian Government does not speeuily come to the relief of ihose unfor tunate beincs, they will absolutely perish from star vation, They are so wretched, that the parents compel their children, at a very early age,to qutt the I paternal roof, and provide for themselves as well as they can." I Imports and Exports of Russia.?The St. Pr- J tnmburgh Jtnirrial publishes the official returns ot 'lie exports and imports of Russia for 1843. Theex ports amounted to st2 568,600 silver roubles, and the imports to 73,028,399 silver roubles. This is a falling ofl "3 compared with 1842, for in that year the ex ports were 9i millions, and the imports 24 millions more than in 1813 Great Fire in Russia ?The accounts from St. Petersburg!!, to the 26th September, state that in the town of Tomsk a distressing fire broke out on the 29ih of June. In leas than fifteen minutes a hundred houses, many of them of stone, were in flames,and were consumed. The governer of the province im mediately sbnt 16.000 silver rubles from a fund re erved for such occasions.

LrvtsrooL Cottox Mabxkt, Oct. 10?We are now passing through a quiet time in our cotton market. Last week the sales were only to a moderate exteut, with a loss of |d on the price of American. The business of this week, however, has been more limited, giving the market a settled of dullness. Still we can not make much change or reduction in tho quotation of prices. Were parties determined to sell, and dose sales of any particular lot. no doubt they must submit to low er rates; hut it so happens, that for the most part, hold ers are not pressing their stocks for sale, but on the con trary. in many instances, are tirm and determined hold ers, waiting further accounts from America. According ly our market, though dull and flat as above stated, is pretty steady in price. Nothing whatever of a novel character to affect the value of the article has presented itself during the past week. The extent of the coming crop in the 1". States is still the great point with us ull. 2500 American have been taken on speculation; and SOU American and 200 Fernarn for export. Total amount of sales for the week are 16.5*0 bales. Livvarooi.

HonaiBLC Mi'kdkb of s'Fshsu: and attempt at Ak aev.?Anothu Helen Jhwktt Affair.?Our city was thrown into a great state of excitement this morning by a report that a most anpalliug murder had bean com mitted at the West End, in a disreputable house in Ce llar Lane, which fact was stated in our second edition, but without any ot the particulars. A Coroner's jury was einpanuclled this forenoon, and under tne direction ct Coroner l'ratt, proceeded to ex amine the bouv, and the premi-es in which the deed was porp.tinted ? a preliminary step to the Inquest, whicn will take place at the Court House, to morrow, at o'clock. The scenp o! the murder is a small two story brick house, in Cedar lane, between Cedar and Charles streets, occupied by Mr. Joel Lawrence and wife, who have lived there something like twenty-five years. For some years past, as wo understand, the premises have been usod us a house of assignation rooms being kept for the accommodation ol thoso in the hahit ot visiting it. The body, that of a young and beautiful female of 23 or 24; was lying on the floor, covered all but the breast, head ami toet, with a bloody sheet which had been thrown over it. She lay on her back close to the grate, with the head turned over on tho right side. The head was thrown back, exposing a ghastly and terrible cut from ear to ear. The jugular vein and windpipe, were entitely severed, the razor which the murderer used having entered to the bone. Her hair was partly con sumed. and her face charred and blacker.ed by the action of the tire. The door of the house being unlocked on the arrival of the Coroner's Jury, they proceeded up one pair of stairs, to the room in which the murder was committed ; and the view was most appalling-inconceivably so to any one who was not there to see it. The room, which was a small sized bed room, in the rear of the house, in the second story, contained frag ments of burnt clothing strewed about, and the walls were spattered with blood-probably done when she was dragged from the bed and thrown upon the floor. A chair standing near the head of the bed, contained a pool of blood. We gathered from a conversation with Air and Mrs Lawrence, and a girl in the house, that they were awak ened about five o'clock this morning, by a shriek up stairs, and a heavy fall, which apparently jarrod the house; immediately after, and before they were hardly awake, a person came down stairs, slipped in tho iiasto, and feli, but recovered, nnd rushed out of the front door. The iamily then smelt fire, and going up to the room, found it filled with llamo and smoke "The lire was aet in throe different places?the bed which the murdered woman had occupied?the closet containing her dresses, and abed in an adjoining bed room, which was unoccupi ed, were all more or less burnt. Against the door of the front bed room, occupied by a girl who lives there, a pile of bod clothes had boon placed and then set on fire -it seems to have been the intention of the murderer to bury all evidence of his fiendish deed, in the conflagru ti*n of the house nnd death of its occupants. Two name of the murdered woman was Maria A hick ford She was of slight, graceful figure, and very beautilul. She has been mart led, but has not lived with her husband lor some time past. He is a shoemaker by trade,and was lately in the employ of Mr. Smith,in Cam bridge street. He is now in hangur, where this ill-fated woman formerly belonged. A letter was found in the room addressed A. J. T. to M. A. B. Also a pair of men's drawers, cane and stock ing, and a bunch ofkeys. Dr. Moriarty, who was pre sent at tho examination, SRid it was impossible for her to move after she received the death wound, and he must have diugged her from the bed. In the straw bed under which she slept, a bunch of matches were found nearly burnt up. Suspicions amounting almost to certainty, are fixed upon Albert J. l'irrell us the murderer, though he has not yet been arrested. Tirrell was arrested some lime since, at New Bedford, on a charge of adultery, and was lately discharged, having compromised the matter. He is said to be a native of Weymouth, in this State.? Boston Mail, Oct. 27. Annexed aro further particulars:? A jury of inquest visited the premises in the forenoou at half past 11 o'clock, and found the room, which is on tho s.cond floor, in much cqnfusion. Among other things, a trunk of clothes, in which matches had been introduced, was uaueh burnt. The bod) ol the mnrdor ed woman was much disfigured, and presented a horrible appearance. She lay iu her blood oil the floor, and the ui tides iu the room were more or less stained with it.? ; borne matches and a comb were found in the bed on which she bad lain.

We learn further, that when he retired from the room, after the act, he was heard by the inmates of the house to slip on the stair* and partially fall down Some of them have recollection, also at to a scream being uttered by some one, evidently by the woman who was murdered. The Jury found among other things iu the room a letter ad dressed as follows : "A. O. 1., to M A. B." The unfor tunate female's maiden name was Maria A. Dunn. She formerly lived in thu vicinity of Bangor, and was mar tied to a shoemaker by the name ot Bickford. About three years since sho left her husband and came to this city, where she has lived a life of dissoluteness, and has attracted much attention in our streets.

The Kiifplleh News. We give to-day our usual lull and carelul synop sis of the news bronght from Europe by the lust steamer, the Great Western. All the important de tails, political, commercial, social, literary, theatri cal, and so on, will be found under their respective heads. Tin* railway mania still rages in England, and tnat is the first thing which strikes us on looking over our files of English papors. All classes of the community are still rushing into railroad specula tion with the most feverish intensity. Side by side with this grand feature in the news, we have intelli gence confirmatory of all the anticipations relative to the bad harvests in Great Britain. A rise in breadstutls and decline in the price of cotton, have been of course the results. The concurrence of two such singular and contradictory movements, may produce a moneyed convulsion in England ; in deed, we do not well see how such u catastrophe can be averted. If those who are at the head of financial atlairs do not manage their institutions and opera tions with the greatest cuution, a terrible revulsion must very speedily occur. In the meantime, while the speculative movement is progressing with extraor dinary rapidity, and producing the most singular and astonishing effects in various ways, the defi ciency in the crops must soon begin to cave in their moneyed operations. One of the most striking re- j suits of this speculative mania, is seen in the fact | that in the London Time* establishment alone, a weekly revenue of .$25,000 is accruing from the rail way advertisements. The last number of Black wood'* Magazine, by the way, contains an ar ticle which illustrates, in a very felicitous manner, the roguery, imposture, and perjury, which are amongst the most prodigal fruits of this extraordinary mania in Great Britain. The day of reckoning appears, indeed, to be rapid ly approaching. Yet, doubtless, the commercial and speculative movement going on in England and France, will have a most potential effect on the minds of men and on moneyed affairs in this coun With regard to the United States, the sante feel- | in" of hostility prevails in England, on account of Texas and Mexico, but not to the same extent as formerly. Indeed, O'ConneU and his clique in Ire land appear to monopolize the subject of abuse of the United States. Doth father and son are busily engaged in making speeches against this country, relative to slavery, Oregon, Texas annexation, an everything else that is peculiar to our policy and progress. The bitterness of the O'ConneU family towards the United States is quite amusing and laughable. It would appear that the influence ol , ouTinstitutions is making itself most seriously felt in Ireland, in opposition to the mercenaiy views j and operations of the "big beggarman. Every week, Irishmen in this country,who enjoy the pnvi lege of citizenship in this free land, and who, by ; honest and honorable toil and exertion, are reaping 1 a rich reward, transmit to their friends and relatives in their native country, such accounts and such ar guments?often in the substantial and most conclu sive form of solid dollars-of the superior excellence j of free government and republican independence, that the humbug declamation of O'ConneU is effec tually exposed, and a spirit set in operation which successfully neutralizes till his efforts to depreciate this land of freedom One thing, at all events, is certain, O'ConneU is no friend of freedom Ol all rhe old corrupt systems of Church and State, he is the constant and fulsome eulogist. American actors in England continue to meet with distinguished favor. Forrest has been playing at the provincial theatres with gieat success, and Miss Cufehman maintains her enviable pre eminence. It seems that a sentiment lavorable to a compro- ( mise of all the existing difficulties between England and the United S ates, begins to pervade the radical ( and free trade journals on the other side of the water, j It is indeed quite evident that a large and influen tial portion of the British public desire to see an amicable and speedy ad justment of aU controversy . between the two countries, relative to commercial regulations, the tariff, Oregon, and every other sub ject. Whether this sentiment will animate the Mi nistry or affect the opinions of Sir Robert I'eel, is, however, very doubtful. Mr. Polk's Course during the Coming Session. The time is rapidly approaching when the Houses ol Legislation ol the United States wiU again as sent' le in Washington, to deliberate over the state of the country, and take some decided course in the prominent questions which have lately been so much before the (leople. The tone that Mr. Polk and his cabinet may as sume on this occasion, is one which will have a con siderable influence; and viewing them in this light, they are looked for with much impatience by the leacers of both parties. From undoubted Bourses at Washington, we are enabled to lay before our readers an accurate synopsis of the probable course that will be token; and as regards the occupation of the Oregon Territory, we are assured that Mr. Polk will take a stand in this matter, in accordance with the opinion lie has already expressed in his inaugu ral address. He will assert the clear and anques t.onable right of the Republic of the United States to the whole of this Territory, by virtue both of their being the first discoverers of it, as also the first occupants, independent of all treaties. It will be remembered, that his inaugural address wherein he made assertions similar to these, created an immense excitement in European diplomatic circles, Sir Ro bert Peel was all amazed, and violent speeches were made in regard to it. As thay were so belligerent on that occasion, it remains to be Been what further excitement in Europe this new declaration of Mr. Polk will cause. As regards the question of the tariff, it will be a subject f ully entered into by the President,and there is no doubt thut many important changes will be proposed. Some talk is heard of negotiations, whereby u system of mutual tarifls, which would he beneficial both to this country and England, may be entered into; but on this question,in consequence of the immense variety of interests that have to be conciliated, the action of Congress is not much reg ulated by the suggestions of the President. 1 For some time past, we understand, pro|<ositions have be-n made to the Secretary of State,the objects of which were to leave the Oregon question to the decision ol a third party, or umpire, who should be called in, but the offer has been declined by the American government; and despatches from the British Legation, at Washington, will go out in the Great Britain this day, in which this result will he communicated to the English government. The whole course of the present Administration, ia of that kind,thut an unswerving adherence toall the rights and properties of the United States, will be ' firmly upheld, in s itr of all the growlings of Euro j pean diplomatists. Accident on tiik Railroad ?Some of the second cU?s passengers in the cars from Boston, on arriving at Stonington Monday night, reported that a man had fallen ofl the cars between that place and Kingston Depot, intoxicated.

Hall?1Tremendouo Conflict Between tfle Fourlerlte Section and the Old Whlgo? Orand Klarc up. National Hall and its vicinity was the scene last evening of one of the most ludicrous, lamentable, ridiculous, funny, and curious political demonstra tions that the annals of party politics and mass meet ings have on record. The whitjs called a public meeting for the purpose of receiving the report of (he whig nominating committee for Register and members of Assembly, and responding to the dis trict nomination of Luther Bradisli for Senator.? All very proper and praiseworthy objects in them selves, undoubtedly. Upon arriving at the Hall we found quite a re spectable audience assembled in the saloon, and were informed by a person acting aa doorkeeper, that the room had been engaged for a Temperance concert, by Mr. Powers, ut which the Hon. James Harper WHa expected to preside. Of course this demolished all hopes of a whig meeting at that place. A sume, however, was erected ou the steps of the French C hapel opposite, and at about 8 I o'clock the meeting was called to order under the canopy of heuven. About two thousand people had assembled, and bonfires burned brightly in the street. A big drum and small drummer, with two fifes, " discoursed most eloquent music." The following gentlemen were chosen officers Pre uip Hene; Vice Preaidenta, Stephen Whit aident, Hon. Phi ney, Henry Haggles, Denning Duer, Barman King, Ho bert B. Minturn, Jared L. Moore, John H. William*. 8yL vanua Gedney, James Green, Schueraian Halstead, Wm. H. Webb, P. l'erril, Peter Halm, A. Kink, John C Greene, Robert Smith, Gerard Stttrvyaant,, Secretaries' Robert G. Campbell, James S. Thayer. Wm. A. Freeborn. Hon. Philip Host now addressed the meeting; lie said he had hopod hit campaigning daya were over, but he could not holp buckling on the hi rnor again for the support of Luther BradUh. Morris Franklin, and the true Whigs who had beea nominated for the Assembly. They weie tho best men that could bo found?not picked out of holes and corners; but good men and true. The Whig* had been beaten at the last flection, hut lie hoped a different late now await ed them. If they did not succeed, they would at least have the consciousness of knowing that they ought to.? Mr. Hone continued for some time to speuk of the hopes of the party. When he sat down loud cries were heard for Horace Greely, who at length took the stand. Mr Greely said ho was instructed to report the result of the Whig Nominating Committee iu the form of an address, which he would now read. The address, alter some preliminary remarks, goes oil to say? We submit for your approval the names of? For Resistor?Montis Fbankmn. Three cheers were called for and given by the crowd. For ,4sseml/y? David K. Ogden, Hamilton Fish, Wil liam Hall, Abram H. Lawrence, Peter 8 Titus, Kldridge G. Baldwin, Kllis Potter, Rich'd 8. Williams. Clarkson Crolias, Morgan Morgans, James Kelly, William Ed monds, John A May. Three more hearty cheers were given, and the meeting cordially responded to the nominations. After asking the support ot the Whigs for these nomi nations, the following singular paragraph occurs : Bear with us, Fellow-Citizens, while we remind you of some of the more important issues involved in the com ing contest. We ask you to remember that the Texas iniquity is yet unconsummated, and that its conditions may be essentially modiflod it its success may not bo averted by the healthful pulsations of an aroused nation al conscience. At all events, the scheme of bullying Mexico into the surrender of that large portion ol her rightful and actual territory lying East of the Hio del Norte, including populous cities and extensive re d in tho ] gions never embraced in tho province of Texas and never seen by a Texan except ns a spy or a prisoner, may be defeated by a seasonable exhibition of the moral sentiment of the nation. We have seen in New Hampshire, the most decidedly bitter locofoco State in the Union, that, on a fair issue of Annexation or no Annexation, the people have twice rendered verdicts distinctly against the scheme. Could the ques tion be presented with equal distinctness elsewhere, we doubt not that every Free State, no matter of what poli tics, would render a simitar judgment. And yet party discipline, and a confused blending of issues have ena bled the F.xecutive to drive the measure through Con gress by a bare majority of votes. Let public opinion now seem averse to the consummation, and it will cither be prevented or rendered far less obnoxious in its condi tions. Let supineuess and apathy be generally mani fested, and the boundaries of Texas will be indefinitely extended, at the hazard, if need be, of war, while so much of her public debt as she sees lit to have paid ut all will be saddlod upon tho Treasury of the Union. Your votes will be felt in the decision of this question." The Tariff is next spoken of iutlie address, anil the pre sent administration declared avowedly opposed to every protective feature. The proposed Convention to revise the Constitution, and the reasons for calling it aro next spoken of. Next followed a series of resolutions in which the Whig cause was spoken of as being alike dear in adversity and prosperity, and concluding with the fol lowing :? Resolved, That in triumph er disaster, in glory or gloom, thero is one American Statesman, whom we can never cease to regard with a confidence and love allied to veneration ; that in the great calamity of last No vember while our first thoughts were of our country our second were of him ; and since then, whenever glad dened by tidiugg which assure us that tho reigu of shut tling incompetency and mousing mediocrity approaches its end, our kourts instinctively prompt the exclamation. " Here's to you, Itariy Clay." This resolution elicited all the pent up enthusiasm in the breasts of the multitude. Twenty hearty cheers were given for Henry Clay. Col. Wkmi wuh now loudly called for. lie at length came forward, and said - Fellow Citizens? (three cheers) ?I came here for the express purpose of addressing you. The difference between the whigs and locofoco par ty is, that the democrats elect just such men as tho party nominate?not so with the whigs?they ex amine for themselves. He wished to say something about the Texas question. (Cheers) The whigs had fought manfully against annexation, but it had been consummated. The incipient steps had been taken by both governments, and now that Congress and the I'lecident bad sanctioned tho course, it wan the duty of all panics to yield. We huve no right?I say it as a w hig ?to make the Texas questiou an issue at this election. (Hissing.) I will assume (suid the Colonel,) that every man here is opposed to annexation, but still it is useless to make this question a prominent one in the coming con test. The whigs have other prominent questions on which they agieed. They were united onthequeslien ef Protection. Voice ix thk Crowd?Good fellow ! hurrah for pro-* <"K tection. CoL Win continued?

(Question, question?hurrah, go it Ho race, 8tc ) Voice in the Caowo-I move that the question be laid on the table. The Chair said it could not be unless the whole ad dress was disposed of in a similar way. Voice?I move to lay the address on the table. The Chaih put the question, but from the great con fusion and the multitude of voices, could not decide.? He thought the vote was anout equal. Jamks Brooks said he was a man of peace?the Texas question was no longer a national question?it had been consummated by the act of the government, and we might as well war with the Atlantic ocean, as attempt to stop it from being admitted. The whigs have done their duty. They have sacrificed their leader. We do not went a new issue. The whirs should act together with heart and soul, and forget all private and personal feel- i iiigs, unite and not sepcrate on new issues, but wait lor for some glorious leader to lead them to victory. (Hisses.) I Why then shove a new issue forward, every vote is j wanted to distract and sever the party. Let the Texas , question alone, it has nothing to do with the present ( contest. (Cries of "question," "question ") Horace Ohkki.y again rose and said?The question should not be taken under misrepresentation. The Texas question was an old issue. The Whigs r11 over j the Union had declared their opposition to annexation. - ' The Texas question touched the hearts and consciences ' of men. The Whigs deny the light of government to i annex the territory of another nation (Greet uproar -hisses, cheers and groans.) | Voices?Go it old lioy?we a e opposed to annexation. , Col.

Mr. Grevlt now got on the table, and said that for tho sake ot peace, he moved an adjournment. The Chairman put the question, and decided that it was carried. Tho uudieuce, however, would not go, and so Horace Greeley made a speech, in which ho acknowledged that the address was written by himself. Amid shouts, rows aud confusion, which beggar de scription, we left the ground, hoping tha neat meeting migut be of a more peaceable character. Affairs in the Argentine Rkpubuc.?By the Kosnbelia, arrived at Salem on Sunday, iroin Buenos Ay res Aug 38th, we have the British Pur kit to the 33d, aud Lu Gazette Mercanttl to 35th August. Nothing of great importance had transpired since the last advice*. The Paekel of the 33d promises in its next number a lull history ol ufl'airsat La Plata, compiled freni uu'lientic documents, and gives some of the latest olliuial commu nications irom the British and FreDch Ministeis, to Au gusta On the 18th, Gov. Horns sent a message to the legislature, communicating the diplomatic correspon dence, which was read in the presence of u great crowd of citizens. All the acts of the Governor were approved in the most unquaiilied terms u determination was manifested to sustain the independence and honor of the Republic, at ail hazards, and the government was charged to de mand reparation from Her Britannic Majesty and tho King of the French, for the offences to the honor and sovereignty of the confodetation, and to the interests of tho country, by the proceedings of tho naval forces of England and Fiance, under the authority of their Minis ters. There is no mention made of any amicable arrange ment between the European intermeddlers u <1 President Oribe, as was intiaiutod in a letter from Buenos A vies of August 13th. Tho Packet of the 18th contains a revised copy of the memorial of the British residents at Buenos Ayres, to Earl Aberdeen, the British Secretary of For eign Atfairs. Tho memorial recapitulatea the privilege* which its Manors have enjoyed tinder tho gov ernmem of Rosas, and deplores the armed intervention of the Bil tish government in the local quarrel between Buenos Ayres and Montevideo. A decree of Rosas, of August 4, Joseph Graham, Esq,, os the United States Consul at Buenos Ayros, and on the 10th, Mr. Graham, at tiie request of Cant. Nicholson, of schooner Enterprise, and Capt. Hand of brig Tweed, of Baltimore, wrote a note to Captain Hotham, of II. B.M. steam sloop Gorgon, thanxiug him aud his surgeon for their kindness and attention to two American seamen, one from each ot tho ahove vessels, who had accidentally received wounds and injuries ? The reply of Cupt iiotham, written ou the 31st, states that as masters of British merchantmen would, in the absence of ships-ol'-war of their own nation, seek surgi cal advice ami assistance from national vessels of the United States, he was happy to conler a similar favor and that both himself and burgeon Niddria were glad of the opportunity to render assistance to their fellow men We copy a lew paragraphs fioni the Packet : ? We forbear all comments on the supercilious tone of tho notes addressed by Rear Admirals Lane and Ingle field to President Oribe, and on the disgraceful distortion of facts and rancorous animosity against the Argentine government, displayed by Messrs. Ouseiy and Deflhudis, and their vain aitompt to gild over their aibitrary pro ceedings. The ministers have entirely thrown off the mask, and openly declare themselves tho protectors aud panegyrists of the foreign mercenaries, who, with 400 Orioutuls in Montevideo, pretend to represent tho sov eignty of tiie Oriental people On the f" On tire 9th lust., the National brig Fanny .from the porte of Saratc in the Parana, bound here, was boarded in the outei roads, by an officer ol H.

Htetmer Gorgon, who, after enquiring the iiima of the vessel, ordered tau master to huul down the Argot tine flag winch the latter declining to do, the officer himself performed the opeia tion, end hoisted English colors instead, sending the mas ter and crew on thoie. We believe that this scandalous proceeding has been disavowed by the commander of the steamer, aud thut it i) now stnted that the whole transaction was u mistake?a very satisiactory Ri ology, indeed ! When we announced n short timo since the Vandalia itruptioii ot Mascatills into the Province of Santa re, we predicted that the invaders would lie soon arrested in their career of depredation uud bloodshed We htd been fullv borne out by the event, for on the 3 1 last., the city ot Santa Fe was rescued from the hands ol tli >-e banditti, and tho horde itsell put to flight, alter losing I AO men in the encounter. General Kchague continued iu close pursuit, and ei.tertunieo a very sanguine hope of overtaking Mascanlla in thr deser!* of ttto i haco. pir ticularly as the irieiidly Indians had carried of his snare horses. Foreign Ooinaln. Much has been wrines, recently, on the charac ter and position of our toreigu Consuls, and the ap pointments of some descanted upon pretty freely ; but with how much justice,I am not prepared to say. Still, this should not he n party question, as every one who hits heeu absent from the country feels how insignificant onr party squabbles are, compared to the honor and dignity of the nation to which lie belongs. He does not, abroad, recognise in tha Consul the representative ot a |"Ny, hut the repte sentative of his country, and as such, relies on h's advice and counsel iu all cases of emergency where the dignity of Ins country, or the rights of its citi zens, Hre involved. But how mortifying is it to a man ot true American feeling, should he have occa sion for the services ot that functionary, in u fo reign country, to find him a native of that country, and devoted to its interest i, and perha|i? imbued with all the prejudices which naturally arise from an ardent attachment to his country, and, of necessity, ignorant of the simplest duties a pertaining to hit ollice. Circumstances of this chamcier I have wit nessed ntore than oace, witere 1 wus satitfied that the evil might be remrdisd by a little attention on the part of government. It is not my intention to point out individuals at this time, but merely to re late some circumstances in connection with our consular system in Mexico, which will serve as hii illustration to the many abuses, in other parts, so re cently made public. Having been more or less in Mexico for the last ten years, I have necessarily come in contact with many of our Consuls, most of whom are very worthy tnen; some, however, have no definite idea of their duties or responsibili ties, being natives of that country; and an eminent merchant ot Yucatan informed me that Mexican ag gression on our commerce was more owing to this defect, than any thing else. I recollect a vessel be ing seized at Sisal, und confiscated, for a slight in formality in her pa;>ers; the Consul there was a Mexican; another was sacrificed at Campeachy on h bottomry bond ; the Consul there was also a Mex ican. During this time, an Knglish brig whs seized on the coast of Yucatan for smuggling, and the clearest proof exhibited. Mark the difference ? The British Consul interfered, and she was liber ? - ted, although clearly forfeited by the laws of uncivil ized nations. It is true, we are now (or were) get ting a tardy remuneration, ui the shape of inst il ments, for these spoliations; hut would it not he better to remove the cause of the evil, and adopt a more efficient system as it regards appointments of this character! But, says the government, Ameri cans, in many instances, cannot be found to fid these offices. Very well; American interests are much better sustained without a Consul under such circumstances; as in case of necessity, the captain of a vessel has it in his power to chose upright mer chants tor his counsel,which, in the present wrctoh ed system, he cannot do. 1 am not one of those who wish to charge upon the < iovernment every evil of this kind, as it is no doubt imposed upon by false pretenses, in many instances, where it seeks 10 remedy the evil; as 1 have known |*r*ons bear ing the name of Americans, supersede others, and the evil aggravated tenfold S ill, a little more cir cumspection on the part of the Government would no doubt lessen the abuse; for nothing is more mor tifying to a m in who possesses some national pride, than to find ail ignoramus the representative of his country, where he hoje-d to find intelligence and virtue, and to hear the sarcastic remarks from his foreign associates, yon have got tn American Con sul now! and what would be thought it I should pursue this picture still further, and say mat [ had seen a Consul, three months after his arrival at his port of destination, arrested; and brought before the Alcaide for a petty debt; but what would be the sur prise if I ehould add, that tor the same cause I had seen him brought before the Alcalde three times in three weeks! and yet this is literally true. This msn had resided in this country somethtner over Hvs years previous to his appointment, which is every way worthy of Tyler's sagacity. 1 hope my readers will not understand me as adopting the nnrrow views of41 nativeism"?no, far from it; all I wish to understood is, that I do not think a man coming from China, or any other part, and deatuute ?l edu cation and intelligence, is a proper ;>erson to repre sent us t broad, even if he should le?rn to writs his name during Ists five years residence amongst us This is but a mere outline of the disngreeahle air. cumntances connected with this system, as [ have by no means presented the worst test ares iu the esse, which will be auite apparent, should 1 derm tl advisablf tn pttnus tns subject laithsi A*
