Ves, It had; to the best of my recollection, Morg-n's regiment had gut past the corn field, in front of the posit ion of Gen Pillow, and wom among the rocks. I don't think the regiment could be seen at the tlm? ; from the nature of the ground ouly occasional sights of the regiment nould be caught.

E NE NEA Great Meeting of Uie Irish Republican Union. Tho bone and sinew of the true-hearted end spirited friends of Irelund, with a genuine " Irish pike" in their midst, assembled last evening in the great hall of the Shakspeare Hotel, which was jammed to suffocation with the most enthusiastic spirits who have, as yet assembled, for the immediate relief of Ireland. Here were neither otiice-seekers nor popularity hunters; but the honest mechanics and laborers, and men fully determined to go to Ireland, to " conquer or to die." The body seemed to be animated but with one voice, and the plan of operation seemed to be re; eeived with groat delight. It is, that " squads of tons . and twenties of well-drilled and scientific military meu bo sent off every ten days to Ireland, from ail parts of , tho United States, going without arms, to oducate the men of Ireland in tho American principles of victory and independence.'' This course. It is contended, is | not illegal, and meetings will be held this cvoning. and oach successive night, until the objects are lully carried out. Richard Rva*, Esq . of Cincinnati, was unanimously nominated President,andThomaH Hayes acted as Secretary. The following resolutions were unanimously adopted :? Resolved, That we have learned with astonishment the barefaced outrage committed by the government of England upon the constitution of iheir nation, by abolishing the rial by jury, in the cnsu of John Mltciiel, having compelled him to submit to the mockery of n trial lief ire men already pledged to eonviet him. Resolved, That a conviction and punishment under such circumstances, call! for the intervention of all true men in Ireland; and the lovers of freedom all over the world. Kesoived, That this organisation was entered into with no other purpose, than of aiding Ireland to establish her independence, by sending her men, arms, and money, and that we still continue our orgasisation for that purpose only. Kesoived, That in order the better to carry out this purpose, we shall devote all funds, now or hereafter to eome into our treasury, to the forwardtug and sustaining whilst in Ireland, deputations of emigrants who, being skilled us the uao of arms, are willing to join the people of Ireland in effecting their deliverance. Resolved, That we hereby direct our Executive Committee, to make the necessary contracts for the passage of tho returning emigrants, nud that thoy he f >rwarded to such parts of Ireland, as, in the opinion of tho Exoentive, will be most availatds in the cause of liberty. The first deputation to be forwarded within ton days. Keeoived. That the funds now and hereafter to be collected shall bo specially held by one of the tinaaoial board, and paid by him personally to such contractors as may be contracted with by the Executive Committee, lie shall give a receipt to the .Secretary for all moneys received by him, and produoe to the Executive Committee vouchers for all moneys he msy pay oat. Keselved, That we oall upon such bodies of the friends of Ireland throughout the oountry, as can oonvenientlv givo n military odaeation t > emigrant* for Ireland, to do so, ana to send them at once to Ireland. Kesoived, That we call upon the friends of Ireland who cannot attend to the instruction of emigrants, to forward their friends to the nearest city in which suoh instruction may be proceeding with. New members Executive Committee;?Michael Phalan, Francis Hill, Wm. MoOarvoy, Dr. Francis Ryan. The meeting was addressed, eloquently, by Thomas Mooney, Esq , tho Irish historian; by Dr. Ryan, and the Chairman. Mr. M. T. O'Connor, of the Irith Volunteer, being repeatedly called for, came forward, and was received with great cheering. He said he was not insensible to the kindness with which he was greeted, nor was without pala in remaining so long without answering them. He was a blunt man and always said what he thought. (Cheers.) He came to the meeting to be a passive looker on?' avlng beard that tho breath of arlstooraey. lik- the simoon's blast, bad withered the young hopes that were springing np in our city in favor of his country. (Cheers, and orles of ' no.1') He would ray, that he waH not in the spirit to address them. ( Go on, 110 on ") lie had gone on with tU" movement, for the purpose of causing the Irisli people to geek for the cheap, just, and only true form of government, " a republic." (Grunt sheering.) And whun all the Irishmen of the city had abandoned their organizations to join in the demand upon their -countrymen to strike for a republic, a body of lawyers and lawyers' clerks rose up and put themselves forward to speak as for the people of this city, telling the Irish people to look for ' constitutional frocdom only." Hero Mr. O'Connor went Into a detail of the wrongs of Ireland, that lushed the meeting into a perfect frenzy Yes, the mother, the Irish mother I She upon whose kindness and love the pen of the panegyrist was silent from want of language to do her justice, is reduced. as Mr. Butt expr?-s-ed it. to keep the body of her dead infant to feed upon. This was constitutional liberty under English law?this was what a body of men in New York dared in your naiuo to a?k the people of Ireland to struggle to maintain. Did they who mot at tho Tabernacle represent you ? (Shouts of ' No. we did not give the? a dollar, nor never will.") Well, the i. said the speaker, if we who preach republicanism for Ireland, speak your sentitngute?show it now?come forward now. and aitheugh you cannot give $10 each glvo such sums as will prove to the world that you are determined never to give up until you put two thousand drilled men into Ireland, talead them to death or victory. Ho then detailed the plan of action which the Republican Union would resort to. It was to pay the passage of such young nnea as had learned the use of arms, to Ireland, there they would mingle among their friends and countrymen, preaching the blessings of republicanism, aud assuring them of the aid aud sympathy of America. When the blow was struck they would be at their poet?and Ireland, in the hour of victory, would bless America, who had received her sons, trained them te the use af a freeman's arms, and sent thein back to battle tyranny and oppression ou their native soil. The collections then poured in freely. The presentation of a real " Irish nlke." with a stout hickory stuff, decorated with the Irish tri-color of green, white and orange, produced *uch a terrific shout as never was. and never can be givsn by any others than the sturdy Irish pikemen. A convention of delegates trora different parts of the United States had met through the day, and hail adopted some very Important measures for Ireland with great unanimity The spirit of the people could not bo repressed, and they adjourned, tilled with a strong determination to keep up the enthusiasm to-night. Today the Irish pike will be paraded through our streets, with a Vankee flag, ami fife and drums?and it seems to be a determination to make this week in this city, the greatest week that Ireland had from this side of the Atlantic, exceeding the enthusiasm of the groat week In June, 1843. at Washington Mall, when <<8.000 was collected for Ireland. It was observable that the funds came freely into the ' Military Chest," from the mechanics and laboring men of New fork. many of the donors offering their lives for Ireland. This looks like roal work. .Political Intelligence. Circular or tiik Massachusetts Wiuns.?The wliigs of Massachusetts, dissatisfied witli the nomination of the Philadelphia Convention, have issued the following circular " to the people of Massachusetts." The Whig National Convention have nominated General Taylor for President of the United States. In so doing they have exceeded their just authority, and liuvo proposed a candidate whom no northern whig is bound to support. He is not a whig, when tried by the standard of our party organization. He has never voted for a whig candidate, has declared that the party must not look to him as an exponent of its principles, that we would accept the nomination of the democratic party, and that he would not submit his claims to the decision of the wliigs. acting through their regularly constituted convention. He is not a whig, if judged by the opinions he entertains upon questions of public policy. Upon the great questions of currency and finance, of internal improvements, of protection to American industry, so far from agreeing with the wliigs he has distinctly amwed that he has formed no opinion at all. He is not a whig, if measured by Massachusetts and of the North hove pledged themselves solemnly, deliberately, and often He is not opposed to the extension of slavery over new territories, acquired, and to bo acquired, by the United Slates. He is a slaveholder, and has been selected because he nould command vutna which no whig from the free States could recolvo. To make room for him. the trusted aud faithful champions of our cause have all boen set aside. The wliigt of Massachusetts, by tbeir Legislature and in their popular assemblies, have resolved, that opposition to the extension of slavery is a fundamental article of their political faith They have spoken with s.,orn and upbraiding of those northern democrats who would sacritice the rights and tho interests of the free States up?n the altar of party subserviency The wliigs of the Legislature have recently declared to the couutry, "that If success can attend the party, only by the sacrifice of whip principles, or some of them.*' they do not mean to be thus successful; that they are determined " to support a candidate who will not suf fer us to be over-halaneed by auuexations of foreign territory, nor by the further extension of the institution of slavery, whieh is equally repugnant to the feelings, and incompatible with the political rights of the free States": ami that they "b'liovo it to be the reso Into purpose of the whig people of Massachusetts, to support these sentiments, and carry Into eff.-ct the de. sign which they manifest," Believing that the support of General Taylor's nomination Is required by no obligation of party fidelity, and that to acquiesce In it would bo the abandonment of principles which we hold most dear -treacherv to the cause of freedom, and the utter prostration of the interests of free labor and the rights of freemen. The undersigned, whigs of Massachusetts, call upon their fellow cfttaens throughout the commonwealth, who are opposed to the nomination of Cass and Taylor, to meet in convention at Worcester, on Wednesday the 2Sth day of Juno current, to take such steps as the occasion shall demand, in support of the prineiples to which they are pledged, and to cooperate with the other free States In a convention for this purpose. srastors fsom Arkansas ?The necessity of electing two United States Senators, at the next session of the Arkansas legislature, has given rise to quite an exclted and amusing state of things in that State. SeTier. Borland, Drew. Sebastien. Field, Hempstead and | others too numerous to mention, all " want" to serv the State, and are openly or privately laboring to secure an opportunity to do so. and are ench barked by their respective friends and dependents, who are making most strenuous efforts for their favoritos and patrons. Or.v. Tavi.o* ix Nvw F.-ioland.?One hundred guns were Bred from Boston Common on Monday, In honor of tho whig nominations. On rscolpt of (ho intelll W TO N YORK. WEDNESDAY gence at New Loudon. Conn., a national salute was tired at a demonstration fer Taylor and Killmore. A Nrw Keidimo.?The Taylor men propose for Oen. Gum's Chicago letter the following new reading : ulntliuhn: I am niU'ih obliged to you for your kind attention in transmitt'og me an iuvi'ation to atte d the Inauguration oD the Mb of March, IH4i?

Thf weatiitn.?The air yesterday morning was very cool, so much so that fire was necessary, uud the henry garments of winter were resorted to.' Towards th? middle of the day, howerer. the warm rays of the sun had their influence, and rendered that portion of tho day delightful. The evening was clear and cool, very like the climate of the extreme southern section of the country. The weather Is quite uncommon fur June, and must very materially retard the growth of vugetation, which flourishes most effectually when the nights are warm. Departure of thi Democratic Lions.?The lions of the democratic party, Messrs. Benton, Houston, Allen, Bright, Cobb. Foote, Bowlin. and others, who came on to this city Willi General Cass, took their departure yesterday morning; a portion of them went to sou the good people of Albanv. while the rest returnad to Washington. After participating in tho great meeting of Monday evening, they weut. en masse, to Nlblo's, where they wore highly delighted with the Viennoises. and, returning to the Astor IIouso, revelled for a while in coffee and'-lieidsick,'' preparator" to their departure, during which time the Mayor , iato the-tk*em<m:-Council his veto of tho whole Vrooeedings. The Lioht Guard.?This beautiful military company of this oity will make their annual extursion on the 21-t Inst., in celebrating the anniversary of ' eir organization. A large and oommodlous steamboat u. been chartered to take the company, with their ladies and numerous InTited guests, to Fairfield, Conn , where they will be sumptuously entertained at Black's Marine Pavilion. They will return to the oity the t ame day. Charge of Revolt.?William Morno, seaman, was arrested yesterday afternoon, under a warrant issued by D. L. Gardiner, Esq., U. S. Commissioner, charged with endeavoring to create a revolt on board tho ship Montreal. He was committed for examination. Sujvdav School Celebration.?Tho annual celebration of the scholars connected with the Sunday schools of the Methodist Episoopal Church, took place yo*tord*y. There were twenty-six schools, numbering sbout soven thousand children, all of whom met simultaneously at Washington Parade Ground, at four o'e'oclf, in the afternoon. They there moved up and down the walks of the square, and sang some beautiful hymns. The sight was most interesting, and tbo whole pro ceedfngs passed off most pleasantly. Warhinoton Cadets.?A company of fine looking young men. nnmboring about forty, and commanded by Captain Boatty, passed our office yesterday afternoon, on their return from a target shooting excursion. Their muskets were handsomely decorated with (lowers, and they moved with great precision. The* target was well perforated, which gave evidence of the accuracy of their aim. Racino in the Streets.?The practice of racing in tho streets, by cartuon and others, has become quite common, and should at once be suppressed. On Monday evening, two cartmen were racing in Hudson street, when one of them having a small boy in with him, suddenly turned up Hammorsly stroet, by which the boy was thrown upon the pavement, and his hip dislocated ; tho other was so near that it was with the greatest difficulty he could prevent the wheels of his cart from running over him. One of the carts bore the No 311. This matter should be taken in hand at once, for the lives of the citizens are constantly endangered by suoh recklossncsH. Scientific Expedition to Lixr. Superior.?Weendcrstand that Prof. Lewis Agassis, accompanied by the superintendent of the Mincralogical Cabinet in Paris, Mr. Keller, from Germany, Dr. John Leconto. of this city, entomologist, Mr. Cabot, editor of tho Muse. Quart. Review. Dr. Stout, of this city, and several students from the University at Cambridge, are about proceeding on a scientific expedition to Lake Superior. The party meets at Sault St. Marie, where they will procure canoes and guides, and go almost completely around the lake, making large collections of animals, birds and fishes, as well as geological and mineral collections. From thence they roturn by way of Lakes Michigan and Erie, visiting Niagara and Trenton Falls. This is tho largest body of scientific men ever out on a geological survey, and as they are to visit a region hitherto almost unexplored, the journal of it will be very interesting. Fires.? \ Are broke out about half past 0 o'cloei- on Monday n!gtU,ln u new boilillng !u I Diversity PlaoiT under ihe following circumstances. One of the policemen of the Fifteenth war J. was attracted to the corner of University Place and K< -irteenth street, by a quarrel between two men, who disappeared as soon as the officer approached A few moments after, he discovered a fire at tho basement window, which he succeeded in extinguishing before any material damage was done. These men arc supposed to have set Are to the building. and the pretended quarrel was only to evade suspicion. A fire broke out also on Monday night In the building at the northwest corner of Washington and North Moore streets, which was put out with trifling damage. Effect of Drusxcssiii.?A woman, named Margaret Hohinson, while in a state of drunkenness on Monday afternoon, fell into the back area of house No. 134 Duanu street, by which her scull was very badly fractured. She was taken to the city hospital.

Deceased. who was a perfect stranger, it appeared, had hold of the rope near the front wh"el of the carriage ?running at the time, and rcfus-d to let go his hold, on being requvted to do so. wh>-n lie stumbled and fell,?tho wheel pasting over his neck and injuring him -everely. so as to cause death in a few minute*. The jury r> nuerea a Vermel. according 10 in? above racts. The Oompauy. No. 3. will defray the expenses of ? public funeral for deceased. The accident occurred during an alarm of fire, which railed out the company Another inquest was held on the body of John Power*. No. 6s9 Fourth street, ship carpenter, aged .Id year*, and born in Kngland. who shot hitnaelf with a mualcet. It appeared that deceased waa a well conducted meehaule, a ship carpenter by trade, and during temporary derangement, destroyed himself by committing the rash act. which he contrived to do by tying a string to the trigger of the musket which was loaded heavily, and placing the muzsle immediately near the heart, pulled the string with his foot, and discharged the load In his chest Part of his heart and lungs were shockingly mangled, and scattered about the room where the suicide took place. His family represent the deceased to be a well conducted and industrious man? Anether inquest was held on the body of Mrs. Sarah Ann Uirard, residing at No. 603 Greenwich street, who came to her death from disease of Lho heart. Verdict accordingly. Sporting (Intelligence. Trottiwo.?The sporting world, about those days, appears to bs In quite as great an ag!tati*n.and excitement as the political; for no sooner is one candidate disposed of. than others spring up. seeking popular favor on the race track. Two well tried champions are to offer themselves to-morrow, on tho Union Coarse, for the handsome sum of $1000. which is pending between them; but whether the black mare Modesty, or grey g. Orey Harry, is to be tho successful competitor, time alone can determ no The affair will, no doubt, bring together as large a multitude as has attended aDy of tho late political gatherings.

The aoeuery is beautiful, and truly effoctive Miss Lockyor as \rlana, Queen of the Fairies, and Mr*. Waleott. as Kair Stur. elicited enthusiastic applause. The engagement of M'Ss Taylor has proved a great card, and no doubt but Cherry will oontiane to draw full houses for some time to come. Nioi.o's, Astob Puck ?Another fine entertainment was given last evening, at this fashionable resort, which may be called the freudesvous of the mondt elegant, and of all the strangers now so numerous lu town. The Vlennolse children were received with unbounded applause, and deserved, ludeed, by their dancing as well as their singing, the harvest which they received. The Pblka Paysanoe. and the Pas defl Amourettes, were also rendered with that precision and style which have made these ohildren ho conspicuous on the boards of all theatres of Europe and America. The English company of actors are nightly sharing also the warm reception given to their little oolleagnes. Another good bill for this evening. Chatham Theatre.?Mr. H. P Orattan appeared last oToning as Rdward O'Brien, the Rebel Chief, in the romsntic drama of that title. After the performance of the " Merning of Life, or, the Orphans," in which, Miss S.

Instead of listening to long winded speeches, from the various rostrums of tho different sides, we advise them all to go and listen to Christy's band; if it does not heal their political differences, it will make them unanimous in one thing?that is, that they aro the greatest Ethiopian singers going. p - n. - xt ?a .aej a?

That their efforts have been directed aright, a visit to the garden will convince any one. For this evening's bill wo refer to the advertisement. Banvahd's Panorama.?This exhibition, the first one of the kind ever got up In the world, and under tho most adverse circumstances, which required all the energies of a Banvard to surmount as fully and admirably as he has done, will soon be leaving us to be exhibited elsewhere. Of the glorious scenery and accurate delineation of every inch of ground for twelve hundred miles on this river we have often before spokeu in terms of admiration. We can only repeat, that no one ought to omit seeing this panorama. It will be exhibited here to-day, vis. at 3 and 8 P.M. Hudson's Panorama.?This elegant affair, giving, as it does, a most perfect and natural representation of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers for 1400 miles of their course, is attracting crowds of visiters. This species of panorama is now so popular and attractive that all our citixcns will beoome travelers, and well informed ones too. without being under the necessity of leaviug their homes for more than two or three hours at a time, and their families thoy need not leave for a mjoieajt, as they will find that taking them with them te the panorama, will be one of tho tlnost treats thoy oan give them.

They are certainly the most unique and beautiful specimens of uuclvilised workmanship ever seen. The toil and trouble of collecting such a large number of specimens must have been iuimen-e, and have cost much money. No such collection has over befbre been exhibited here, we believe. Mr. Oeorok Vandenhofv. of tho Broadway Theatre, takes a benefit to-morrow evening. The bill of entertain in o fits is a lively and attractive one, Mr. Vandenhoir appearing in two of his prominent characters, and in the recitation of Collin's Ode of the Passions, which he delivers. In the costume of Apollo, with great beauty and finish. Mr. Vandenhoff is one of the most accomplished astors connected with the American stage, and the announcement of his name for a benefit ought'to fill the house, and doubtless will.

Both parties then went to work at each other, like bull dogs, and a regular rough and tumble fight took place; and as Charley's party was tho weaker side, of course they had to go to tho wall Charley finding himself cramped, and supposing to frighten them off. drew a six-barrelled pistol and discharged one barrel, the ball ef which passed through ths ear of one of his own friends.

The magistrate held him to bail in #600 each, on both charges, which he gave, and was lilwrated from custody. This Dutch Charley Is the same individual who a few months ago, In an affray, shot Tom Burns and Bill Ford, who were both In the act of assaulting him. when he resortto the pistol for his own personal safety, wounding one in the neck, ami the other In the shoulder; since wh<eh time he has always carried a pistol, having been threatened with personal violence from certain parties Kotttl Tkirf JlrrttltA. ?

The difficulty betweeu them was respecting the loss of a jacket 1 and two dresses, valued in all at $3 00. The accused parties were brought into the office by officers O'Brien . and Clifford, of tho 0th ward, from the Five Points, followed by a motley crowd, consisting of blanks and ' whites, vagabonds, thieve*, and honest men. tilling the ' court room almost to suffocation, ailoager to witness the scene and laugh at the fun. The magistrate, observing the crowd, called up the witness to make his j complaint. The witness who stopped up to tlio bar, . was a tail negro with large lips, very dark, shining skin, { and rather a good natured countenance. . Magistrate?What is your nnmo, and what charge do you make ugainst the prisoner? At these questions the negro opened his mouth, at the same time making big eyes at the justtoe, giving his j neck sudden twitches and his mouth still npeu, as if it contained a piece of hoi corn ; at last a sound was heard from tho uegro?" Jo o-o-ph?Hcr-Rob-in-son," . and thus he went on stuttering iuimoderately until he told his story, which was to the effect that Sam Freeman, and Lizzy, his wife, had stolen his coat aud two dresses from him? but the manner of telling his story, and the droll effect It had turougn stammering. Kept the officers convulsed with luughler. Tho face of the Justice, who generally carries a very sober and dignified countenance, was drawn oompletely out of shape from the negro's comical delivery. Mauy of the 1 spectators fairly shed tears from laughter. Mauistkate? How came you to steal this clothing from this man Sam ? Let me hear what you have to say in your defence Against this chiirge ? Sam, who was In a very good humor, being a little in liquor, smiled at the Justice, inad| a bow, and said : "Please your honor, that is my name," at tho same time pushing up his shirt sleeve, exhibiting tho letters S. and F., of large size, pricked in with blue ink : "that, said he, Is my name, Sam Freeman. Now Judge, I'll just tell you all about It. I does my work mostly at night, aud as I was asleep in my room dis morning, this ere fellow, (pointing to a white man dressed as a sailor, who was also a prisoner). corned into my room wid a bundle of clothes, and wanted to know if 1 oould not sell 'em for him.

Shu was blessed with prodigious zips, the under one having a large crack in the centre. through which her tongue (which appeared to be white. eoo> ranted with her ebony face) passed backwards aud forwards, there being no teeth iu her under jaw to obstruct its progress. Thus she , went on wiili a lisp corroborating the story just related by her husband, her tongue passing iu und out of her mouth in a funny manner, together with her grotesque c tions. keeping the court lit a tit of laughtar. J bu white fa)'. "S vould look lou-tn the 'ken eicy dow and then, and says: "Oh! what a tie." if I was you. I would tell tho truth any how ' John Brown, the sai'or, then begged the Justice to hear his witness, who was a black woman, as the ace of spades, calling herself Margaret Ann Woods, with be.r wool cut short to her head, and an old dirty yellow silk handkerchief tied tight around it; her lips were large, her nose broad, lopping eyes, aud a long neck; her dress, which was remarkably low on the neck, gave her altogether a very interesting appearance. She told n pretty straight story to the court, ' which cheered the sailor, and placed the theft beyond a doubt, on Sam and his wife, and thus the magistrate decided, by committing Sam and his wife for trial on the charge. The whole scene, from first to last, was one of those comical and laughable affairs which occa- 1 sionally take place iu the Pulico Court. Such scenes 1 witnessed, the reader can readily iinsgiuo, are conside- 1 rably mere rich and amusing than It U possible to 1 make them by description. 1 Law Intelligence.
