ccordine to the TariB correspondent of
London Morning Chronicle, the Tope has
refused to visit France for the purpose of assis
ts at t!:e coronationof Louis Napoleon. It
s designed that he should disembark at Mar
es, and there be received by all the French
nnalp, and a deputation of all the great of-
i'
it
ivrs of State. But on the matter being men
t !iedto him, he declined postively but courte
i as!v. It is added that when General de Cotte
arged the matter as on act of gratitude on the
part of his Holiness to the Head of the State
hich had restored him to his throne, the Tope
relied that be was far from being ungrateful
Tor the cervices rendered to him by France, but
that he had quite made up his mind that it was
k'.s duty to decline taking any part in the coro
nation of a French Emperor. General de Cotte
then hinted that if his ZToliness persisted in his
refusal, the President might consider it his duty
to withdraw the French troops from Rome ; up
on which Pio Nino said that he would deeply
deplore any such resolution but that he would
place his trust in the support of Trovidence,
and of his other tillies. From this it would ap
pear that Louis Napoleon is likely to want at
Itait one of the elements which he himself has
recorded as the grounds upon whicthhe Empire
eight to be considered a legitimate sovereignty.
Tie Pope will not consecrate his Crown.
Hve you any thing to do this evening ? If

"Arid after you have finished reading the
Gretley picture book, called the 'life of Gen
Scott,' and you have a few additional moments,
to spare, hunt up the State Gazette, of August
fch, 1847, and you will there find the follow
ing: "Gen. Scott is insulting and impertinent to a
eple of clergymen, and wanting in the courte
sy common to gentlemen V He is guilty of the
Narrowest illiberality, and threatens a man with
death, because he presumptuously dares to obey
God rather than obey Gen. Scott! Gen. Scott
PPars to be devoid of the true principles of
religious freedom, is weak, eilly passionate, and

WHO IS GEN. FIERCE ?
The New York "Recruit," an excellent cam
paign paper, publishes the following outliu : of
General Tierce's career. We think it affords a
succint and satisfactory answer to the above
question, which ignorant men among the wa:gs
sometimes amuse tbems::3 by asking. '
A BRIEF OUTLINE

RESIGNED THAT HIGH OFFICE,
And retired to Private life, and the .Practice cf

He was a Whirr when it was an easy matter for

"And Iu ill vote for Tierce. I know him as
a sound National, Conservative man. He be
longs not to the party with which I have all my
life been associated. But I have closely scan
red his public life, and I admire it. 1 have
read his public speeches and his public letters,
with nn admiration, which I cannot resist, cf

in- i
the loftv patriotism by which they r.rc disti
guished. 1 would be a3 proud to be the author
of his letter to M.-'jor Lally, and of his speech

things, the gratitude of my vote, and I icill pay

'I believe he is the instrument destined to
crush that Nothern fanaticism, which having
bought a poi t on of the Southern Whig party

higher law than the Constitution.
"As certainly, then, as that I have been al
ways a Whig, and 'an ultra Whig' as certainly
as Scott is the favorite candidate of the anti
compromise Whigs of the North so certainly
will I vote against Scott, and for Tiehce.

thing but "Hro la rrincesta" on it, when they
came to arrest this terrible criminal.
From the New York Courier.
We had the pleasure yesterday of conversing
with a number of the passengers by the Black
Wavrior, among them several Creoles of large
mcins, who have come here with their families,
and design becoming citizens of the United
States, as they declare it impossible for any per
son who has the least self-respect to live longer
at Havana, or indeed on the Island of Cuba.
We learn from these passengers, that the Count
of Pczos-Dulces, brother-in-law, of General Nar
eiso Lopez, is still in prison. He is confined in
the most loathsome dungeon in the Castle. All
his property, which was very large, has been
-onCseatd to th government, tnd it was ru
mored that the noble Count himself would be
given to the garote together with his brother,
Don Jose Frias, who was arrested at the same
time.
Three other persons, Srs. Quintcro, Balbin
and Gonzales, had been tried, and seutenced t
death by the Commision Militar, s.nd were to b(
garroted in a few days. The trial of numerout
prisoners was"pendTng.
Domiciliary visits were more numerous than
ever ; tht?y are now made by day as well as b
night, and bands of soldiers may be seen at ah
hours, conducting some unhappy prisoner to the
Castles. There was no sort of security for eith
er life, person or property, and all these Creoles
who were able, were making preparations to em
igrate to the United States, until the issue of the
present difficulties shall be apparent.
The conduct of Capt. Porter, on his arrival at
Havana from this port, had excited the univer
sal admiration of the Creoles, and had been the
subject of comment in the newspapers. His re
turn from New Orleans was looked for with the
greatest anxiety, as it is believed that the Gov
ernment will hardly dare to fire into the Creseut
City so is threatened.
We have been permitted to peruse several pri
vate letters, which confirm the information we
have received from the passengers in every par
ticular. One of these letters states that Drake,
Brothers & Co. received their letters by the Cre
scent City, though no other house in Havana
was so favored. The news of the Njw Orleans
meeting had given the conspirators much joy.
The Spaniards seem to be much exasperated
against Don Domingo de Goicouria, and lay the
whole burthen of what has occurred upon his
shoulders. The letter before us reports the fol
lowing as the chaste language used by a gov
ernment official in speaking of SignorGoicouria:
"It is this black cur, this shameless mulatto,
Domingo ele Goicouria, who is the principal ora
tor of the ffllibustero canaille. This mulatto
scoundrel who should have been hung when he
was here. There he has a chance to let out his
black indecency, &c."
The following extract from another letter will
be found interesting:
Havana. Oct. 13th.
' ' The situation of the patriots
is every day more and more compromised. Im
prisonments continue, and denunciations multi
ply. The conspiracy ha3 been denounced at
Matanzas, and a section of the Commission Mil
itar despatched thither to inquire into the accu
sations, and commence the trials. Another con
spiracy has been denouncad at Pinar del Rio
( Vuela Obajo) and another section of the Com
ision Militar ordered there for the same object.
This section is accompanied by Jose Rives, Seo.
as the accuser, who is to point out the crimi
nals. Said Rives and his son Jose Maria have
been the accusors of Don Juan Gonzales and
others of Vuelta-Abajo. (The two Rives, father
and son, were both State prisoners, who have
been set at liberty, on account of therevelations
they have made. They have long conferences
daily with the Captain General.)
The Captain General is very uneasy about the
Cresent City business, and he has had a very
serious misunderstanding with his Secretary,
Martin Galiano, who has been his counsellor
and guide in the transaction. Galiano wished
to resign the Secretaryship, Canedo, however,
has not accepted his resignation, but on the
contrary, told Galiano that as he had led him
into a bad scrape, he should see him out, and
stand by the consequences of his conduct.
Tlie Vaile of Avbca.
Grace Greenwood, in one of her letters from
Ireland, published in the National Era, gives
this prosaic description of the Vale which Moore
has made immortal :
Our next visit was to the Vale of Avoca, im
mortalized by Moore, in his song of "The Meet
ing of the Waters." I looked in vain, in the
little streams Avonmore and Avonbeg, in their
wedding at Castle Toward, and in their subse
quent two-inoneness, their slow, sedate, matri
monial cn-fiow, as th3 Avoca, for that "purest of
crystal" which gleams in the song the poet's
words have a more silvery flowing than these
waters, and this Talley's "brightest of green"
is surpassed by the verdancy of the romantic
tourist who comes hither hoping to behold a
picture of entrancing loveliness, which was "ail
in tlie eye" of the melodist, ine current, oi
the Avoca is evidently discolored by the copper
mines, worked on its banks, most unpoetic and
unlooked-for adjuncts to that "scence of en
chantment." Yet, believe mc, I felt a deeper
pleasure in seeing the poor countrymen of the
poet earning an honest livelihood by mining in
those hills rude avocation for the '-Sweet Vale
of Avoca" than I could have iftownin the per
fect realization of his most exquisite dream."

G It A A IT K CLUB A C ALL IPOX GIZTT.
1'IEKIK.
At the regular meeting of the Granite Club, on
Thursday their hall was jamed full of
enthusiastic Democrats, assembled to congrat
ulate each other upon the glorious news receiv
ed from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Florida
and Baltimore. Very eloquent and spirited
speeches were made by Edon Hill, Esq., cf
Concord, Wm. Burns, Esq., of Lancaster, L.
Smith, Esq., of Nashua, and S. M. Wheeler Esq.
of Fisherville, which were responded to by the
most enthusiastic cheers. The Concord Band
was present, and added to the interest cf th
occasion by some excellent muic. ,
At the close of the exercises in the hall, it wa
voted that the club proceed to the residence of
Gen. Pierce, and congratulate him upon the de
mocratic victories above named. A procession
was thereupon formed, and headed by the band
marched to the south end, and halting before
Gen. Pierce's house, the band played a serenade
andhen the crowd gave three tremend
ous cheers for the states named, and three for
Gen. Pierce ; and when Gen. P. appeared, th
president of the club, Mr. Marshall, addressed
him as follows :
General Your friends and neighbors hava
called to announce to you the gratifying intelli
gence just received. The telegraph wires in
form us that Pennsylvania has gone for the De
mocracy by 15,000 majority. "While the Key
stone stands the arch is safe." Ohio sends us
greeting 20,000 for tho Democracy. Indiana
follows with 12,000 on the same Bide. And last
and perhaps the most surprising, is the an
nouncement that the "Monumental City" ha
rolled up for its Democratic candidate for May
or, the unexampled majority of 3300. Add this
to the glorious news from Florida. Your friends
cannot restrain their joy, and they bid me hear
tily to congratulate you."
General Pierce acknowledged the kindness of
his neighbors and friends, in coming to greet
him upon the reception of intelligence to whica
they might well suppose he was not indifferent
though he could truly say that his position from
the first, had never excited in him anything lika
a feeling of elation. He had calmly awaited
, ,i
the projrss of events, etv should centinn. .to
do so, eronscious that hower the result might af
fect individuals, his intelligent countrymen were
abundantly competent to take care of their owa
interests, under the guidance of that power
to which he wished we could all habitually look
with more humility and faith. He trusted his
friends would not forget that, with high-toned
and honorable men, the hour of triumph was
always the hour magnanimity.
It was not to be overlooked, that there were
around us many with whom we are in daily in
tercourse, at this moment moved by feelings ex
actly the opposite of those which called out the
assemblage before him ; and his friends could
well afford to allow that circumstance to detrac.
somewhat from their generous joy. He hoped
they would also remember that no prospect of
success, nor indeed political elevation itself,
could render their neighbor more or less worthy
of the confidence and affection for which he wa
profoundly grateful. To the cople of his n&- ;
