THE MACREADY AND FORREST
Mr. Macready did not appear at the
Astor Palace Opera House, in New York,
on Tuesday evening, so that we have no
new disturbanres to notice. Forty seven
prominent genlemen. anong them Wash
ington Irving, Ogden Hofiman, lienj. I).
Seillituan, Cornelius Mtathews, David
Graham, &c.. hearing that he had deter
mined tot to appear again, have addressed
hani a note, urging him to ieconsider his
decision, and assuring hitn thi he will he
sustained by the public. Accordingly he
was to appear again yes'erday evenine.
The Ilerald says that Mr. Mlacready will,
in a few days. poiblisha letters from Forster,
the London critic, Fettblanque, Hullwer,
andothers proving that the treatment of
Furrest in Eiglaind on his second visit,
was solely in reialiationi for the A tmerican
reception of ickens' bouk on Ametican
manners ! Mitcready it is said, endeavored
to prevent thse strictures.
The New York Courier, of Tuesday. as
we stated yesterday, charged the Macrea
dy row upon Forrest. and says lie instiga
ted the row and paid fur the admissiin ofr
the rioters, and that lie has in flicted a stain
upon the Amerietin character. The charge
of the Courier appears to have been alto
gether gratuitous and unfounded, and yes
terday's Coutier contained a retratitio. in
which one of the editors, who wrote the
former article, says:
"In connecting the name of Mr. Forrest
with their perpetration, he spoke from no
knowledge of facts which would establish
any such connection. His statements upon
this point were entirely inferential. de
had nodoubt whaever that the circum
stances of Mr. Forresi's controversy with
Mr. Macready, and the fact that Mr. For.
rest had declarcd in public that Mr. Mac
ready should never be permitted to appear
again upon the stage in this city, warranted
the inference which lie drew, that the dis
turbance on Monday night was of Mr.
Forrest's procurement. lie mnakes this
explanation. because the paragraph was
published witihout thc knowledge of the
responsible editor, who does not deemt the
facts sufficient to narrant the assertion
that Mr. Forrest had anythiug to du with
the outrage in question."
The writer further states that the charges
were made and piublished without the
knowledge or approval of the responsible
editor. Col. Webb, who adds a note, in
which be says:
"It is quite certain that there is no evi.
deanceof Mr. Furrcst's being a party to
the proceedings, and we are bound to
assume that he was not."
Latcr.-The New York Courier and
Enquirer of yesterday moruing. contains
another letter from Mr. Sedawick, on the
part of Mr. Forrest, in which lie acknowl
edges a portion of the above apology ac
ceptable, and adds!
-But your paper of this iorning con
tains an assertion which Mr. Forrest can
not, for a moument, allow to pass uncon
.. -You state-'as a tact,' in the aricle to
bich I refer, that 31r Forrest aade
eer be I ermitled to appear again upon
-:the stage in this city.' and the inference
again said to 'warranted bty the faet, is,
that the disturbance on Monday tnightr was
of Mr. Forrest's procuremtentt.' I
4g31,-. Forrest pronounces the assertion
to be absolutely false: asd I am instructed
to request that you will at once conitradict
it or give the authority on whose informia
lion the statement is made."
Trho Courier backs out entirely frotm
this assertion also, by saying th;:t they
"presume they were mistnformned in regtrd
to the matter, antd accordingly withdraw
enitirehv the inference drawn ftomn the
alleged statement"-and~ renews the ex
pression of regret that the origintal state
menlt shoutld have been matde.
The Courier also publishes the reply
of Macready to the comitittee of citizetns
wvho invited him to fulfil his engagement.
despite the attack that was made on himt
Monday night,~ in which he says that lie
bad determ.ined to abandon his engage
mient, but adds :
"Ia leaving this country n hich has been
endeared to nty recollectioin by long atnd
strong attachmieis. I shouldi not have donte
you the injustice of associatinig the Atmeri

uahappily too fiequently to be round itn

spirit which w'ould preseree me from a
hasty :and iticonsiderable jutdgmenit upon
the late occurrenices, I assent to your
request, honoring and feeling grateful for
the sethtimettt that has dictated it."
The Heral of yesterday mortning, st ates
that a hand-hillI containinig the folluinig,
was stuck up) in various parss of the city:

Mr. Macready has also issued it pam

Will the people of our District respond to
the sentiments of the Convention ? Of this
there can be no doubt. They are, we believe.

FOR THE ADVERTISER-.
The same subject Continued.
This spirit of sickly reform. rising, as
we have stated, in the gieat City and State
of New York, as from a gushing fountain,
is growing into a mighty flunl, which is
destined, we ftear, to overspread this whole
land, carrying with it ruin and devasta
ion. Already it has done much injury.
It has affected niure or less every State in
the Union. Its haneful ellects have been
seriously felt even in our own little com
nonwealth, in which a conservative prin
ciple has been strongly inculcated. It has
raised among us a loud cry fur change.
To what excess it will ultimately lead,
is known only in the inscrutable wis
iom of an Ailwiso Providence. G,d
grani, its ronsequences may not here, as
elsewhere prove fatal to oder and rational
liberty. It is needless it say, wherever
this reckless spirit has gone its influence
has been sad and pernicious.- its inevitB
ble tendency is to unsettle affairs-to pro
duce anarchy and faction ; in a word, to
break down old things however nise and
venerable, and to establish new lowsnever
flimsy and unsubstantial. Its incidental
cotiseqrnences are to cause to be neglecied
talent, learning and virtue, and to' give
full scope to all the evil passions of licen
tious deinagogueism. It requires no phi
losophic eye to discern, that, unless check
ed, it must end eventually in a low state
of politicul morals and organization-in a
word, in the overthrow of all rational
llavinig given, as we believe, the true
historical migin of this radical spirit in the
country, it may not be amiss to inquire
into the causes that have given it birth,
and that favr.r its ripid progress among us.
The physician, in order to apply a proper
remedy, should know not only when a
disease originates and on what part of the
body it first shows itself, but should search
out likewise the causative agencies tOat

causes io which to ascribe the evil alluded
to-one is the character of our liberal go
ernment and institutions'; the other is. the
def tive moral and political knowledge
among the people.

failure to comply with its true intent and

substructures on which rests our govern

our present Federative system, the best
style of governmnent for a population of
freemen. It is well ndapted in our judg

on theother. It is highly fitted to preserve
