Amon and FmakMa, and Eogwr Sherman, and also perhaps, (for this i* the first time I have been ** here,) in this very room, stood the dauntless John Hancock, as he received from those men, not only the assertion of our rights, but the charter of our liberties. Can we do any thing but bow iu a place like thin? It in not in my power to speak to you at length. You have said very properly perhaps that it is not your province, ft certainly is not mine to disturb the deep current of feeling which courses the hearts and minds of those around nie. . But it is not only your city?it ia your State that is of some mark. In a peculiar sense are your resources of wealth and power reposed in her own bosom. She is an empire in herself. Why, the development of the uses of' iron and coal so pre-eminently since 1H16, the foundation of British wealth and power, would of itself constitute a never-failing source of prosperity to you. But, Hir, it is not that on which you have mainly relied. It is your agriculture. How rich you are not only in the means of production, but, above all, in the men who produce. [Applause.] Sir, I would not here forget that remarkable German population, so distinguished for their thrift, their industry, their integrity, and their devotion to civil and religious liberty; and I think you must all rejoice that wherever that race go, and are spread, they look to Pennsylvania in some respect as their second fatherland. Sir, it is not chiefly, perhaps, or not so much Colonel Forney, and by the Hon. James Guthrie. The Gwin and McCorkle Duel; As we elsewhere quote from a California paper a jeu d'esprit relating to this affair, it is proper we should, in all soberness, give place to the following. After seventeen days of suspense, it must not be deemed surprising that tho good tidings of 4' nobody hurt" should excite in us a disposition to be merry over this mclo-dramatic, if not tragic, event. An Affair of Honor.?A hostile meeting took place, about two o'clock yesterday afternoon, between the Hon. Win. M. Gwin and the Hon. J. W. McCorkle, in consequence, as we learn, of certain offensive remarks made by the latter while on the race-course. The ground selected was just this side of the boundary line between San Francisco and Santa Clara counties; but on receiving intelligence that some interference was to be looked for, the parties proceeded to a spot about three miles the other side of the line. Mr. McCorkle won the choice of position and the word. Tho weapon selected was the rifle; distance thirty paces, tho combatants to wheel at tho word and fire. A number of spectators were on the ground. Three shots were fired without effect, one of Senator Gwin's balls passing almost through the hair of Mr. McCorkle. The following document, signed by the friends of the parties, will explain the sequel: 44 After an exchange of three ineffectual shots between the Hon. Win. M. Gwin and Hon. J. W. McCorkle, the friends of the respective parties having discovered that their principals were fighting under a misapprehension of facts, mutually explained to their respective principals in what the misapprehension consisted; whereupon Dr. Gwin promptly denied the cause of provocation referred to in Mr. McCorkle's letter of the 29th May, and Mr. McCorkle withdrew his offensive language uttered on tho race-course, and expressed regret at having used it. 44 S.

From Tkxas.?The New Orleans Picayune of the t?th contains advieeN from Texas, received by the steamship Yacht at that port. The Yacht brought forty-two thousand dollars in specie on freight. The death of Captain Tomliuson, a noted Texan Hanger, is announced. The Democratic Statu Convention of Texas had met, and adjourned without succeeding in making their usual nominations. The attendance of members at the convention was quite small. Colonel Blanton had been named us a Whig candidate for Congress. Refreshing rains had occurred throughout the State, which proved highly 'beneficial to the crops, and also caused a rise in the Colorado river of seven feet. E. H. Winfield, esq., had liecn elected to the office of Mayor of Corpus Christ i. "My wife has broken all the vows Slic made to 111c when first I wed her;" Said Simon Sly, whose charming spouse Smiled bright as on the day he had her: 'To love, to honor, and obey. She took the vow for all together, And (kissing her in kindliest way,) pfow the sweet vixen don't do cither." L ^ _ on account 01 your nunurea resource*, or uu account of your commanding political influence in point of votes, that this nation lias designated you the Keystone of the Arch. It is because of your geographical position. You are neither a Southern, a Northern, an Eastern, nor a Western State, and I should perhaps not much exaggerato if I were to say that you are all combined. [Applause.] Your rivers on this fljde of the ridge empty themselves into the beautififf bay below you. On the west they swell the flood of the Ohio, and finally wash the shores of Louisiana. 11 Sir, let me say to you that patriotic men throughout this entire country, North and South, look to you, and will always do so, not simply as the Keystone of the Arch, but as the great central, self-sustaining link in the chain which binds this Union into one harmonious whole, and which, holding it steadily and firmly to its moorings, will enable it to ride over every storm. [Enthusiastic applause.] Noble, noble men of Philadelphia, and men of Pennsylvania ! Noble for your fidelity to the duties imposed upon you by the obligations of your Constitution. May I not say?let nie say here? you are not only triply armed, but you arc notf and have been triply bound. Here was the Declaration of Independence proclaimed?here the Articles of Confederation were promulgated?and here, finally, that Constitution for which you have so nobly stood was adopted. [Cheers.] I could wish for you no higher honor, and for my country no higher place and security than that groat and noble devotion which you have thus far so honorably upheld and maintained. The speech was listened to with profound interest, und at itB close three hearty cheers were . given for President Pierce. The party then lcfl the Hall, and the President >VttB UKUIICU W/ Ilia luugiu^o uv UIV ^Tiuiuiiuuto Hotel. Ail immense crowd thronged in front of the building, and after repeated calls General I Pierce c&mc forward and inudc a brief but very happy speech. He expressed his thanks in oloquent language, and paid a glowing compliment to the chivalry, gallantry, and patriotism of Pennsylvania. Her sons were ever ready to respond to the call of j their country, and wherever floated their flag victory was sure to follow. New Jersey had a strong representation in the procession, and among her Committee of Arrangement were her two distinguished United States Senators. Much enthusiasm was displayed at various points; and during the evening General Pierce 011 more than one occasion expressed himself as gratified beyond measure at the truly generous and brilliant reception that hud been given to him by the citizens of Philadelphia. At the Merchants' Exchange, in the evening, speeches were made from the portico by the President, by the Secretary of War, by the Secretary of the Treasury, by the Attorney General, and by Colonel Forney. At the banquet the Mayor presided, and portinent and eloquent speeches wore delivered by hiin, by the President, by the Hon. Jefferson Davis, by the Hon. James Buchanan, by General Patterson, by Morton McMichael, esq., by Y TELEGRAPH. Arrival of the Arabia?Three Days Later from Europe. New York, July 13.?The steamer Arabia arrived this morning, bringing sixty passengers and Liverpool dates of the 2d instant. She passed the steamer Canada and the ship Sovereign of the Seas in fourteen days from New York, going in. TURKEY. News from the East is scarce and every tiling is yet in doubt. Nothing has yet occurred from the Porto's rejection of the ultimatum. Nothing could be done before July 1, at which time it was believed the Russians had not crossed the Danube. It was reported that Turkey had formally demanded the armed intervention of the four< great powers, and this statement is confirmed. The aspect of affairs is regarded now as less favorable to peace. The French and English fleets were anchored off Tenedos, a small but celebrated island situated aliout fifteen miles southwest of tins entrance t? the Dardanelles. SPAIN. It was again rumored that Gonzalez Bravo would succeed Calderon de la Barca as Minister to the United States. INDIA AND CHINA The overland Eastern mail brings no definite news from Rangoon. Trade at Calcutta was dull. Hong Kong dates of May 6 bring a rumor that the rebels had recaptured Nankin and were marching on Pekiu. AUSTRALIA. Advices have been received from Sydney to April 2d, Melbourne 7th, and Adelaide to the 12th. The gold news was satisfactory. Provisions were enormously high. MARKETS. Liverpool, July 2.?Cotton has been irregular, and prices of some qualities have slightly declined, while others are firm.

London, July 2.?Telegraphic despatches from Paris yesterday state that news of the' rejection of the last ultimatum had reached St. Petersburg on the 24th ultimo. The Emperor had made a personal declaration to the English and French Ambassadors, expressed in the strongest language, stating that even the destruction of his fleets would not prevent his invading Turkey and obtaining reparation. The fourth division of the Russian army had been ordered to enter Moldavia. The Russian force on the line of the Black sea amounts to 160,000 men. The Emperor complains of the conduct of the British Premier, and is said to have forwarded peremptory instructions to M. De Brunow to confine himself to official intercourse with the British Secretary of State. Arrival of the Cherokee. New Orleans, July 9.?The steamer Cherokee has arrived with Havana dates of July 3d. Seve- , ral more cnrgocs of slaves had been landed on the Island. Arrival of the Philadelphia. New Orleans, July 9.?The steamer Philadelphia arrived to-day with the California mails of the 16th.

The Mohmons.?The New Orleans Rejiublican nays: "Their missions lo Europe and also here are attended with a wonderful success. They are fetching to this country converts by the thousands, if not millions. An English paper in their interest, called the Millennial Star, in speaking of the Mormon emigration from that country, pretends to 'furnish an abstract statement for the satisfaction of all who are interested in the gathering of the people of God,' and says: 'Eight vessels iiave sailed from this port Bince the 15th of Januurv .last, 2,586 saints; 23 saints have emigrated by other vessels, making a total of 2,600, nearly nil of whom had their arrangements made before leaving, to proceed directly through to the Great Salt Lake Valley. Of this number 2,252 have emigrated by their own arrangements, 957 of the ^10 companies, 400 by the Perpetual Emigration Fund Company- The whole involving an immediate expenditure of about <?30,000. The entire machinery for making the best broadcloth went out under the care of Elder George Halliday. The machinery belongs to the Desert Manufacturing Company, and is constructed on the most approved principle.' "At this rate the Salt Lake Valley will soon be densely populated. But what the character of its inhabitants will be is probably not very well known. Under the sanction of religion the Mormons have spiritual wives and a plurality of wives. We have just seen it stated that Brlgham Young, their present leader, with his half score of wives, more or less, has over thirty children; and so of the rest of them. They have also other practices equally objectionable, and if they are to liave the government of one of the States of this Union at some time, as doubtless they will, all necessary care should be taken by Congress that they are not an enemy in our midst, instead of a Drinking in San Francisco.?The Christian Advocate lias found by actual count the whole number of places where liquor in sold in that city to be five hundred and thirty-seven. Of these eighty-three are purely liquor, in retail line, and fifty-two wholesale; making one hundred und twenty-five places which do not keep an onion to modify the trafiifc. Of the four hundred and twelve places where it is sold in connexion with other business, one hundred and forty-fbur are tavern restaurants; one hundred and fifty-four groceries; forty-six gambling houses; and fortyeight supposed to lie kept by bawds! Some of these appear genteel, others are dance-houses and such like, where Chinese, Mexican, Chilian, and other foreign women are assembled. There were, five hundred and fifty-six bar-tenders present in tho various places at the time when the memoranda wore taken. Wo think wo may safely add one quarter, if not one-third, as reserve corps, making, including women, seven hundred and forty-three bar-tenders in that city. LOCAL MATTERS. The Lihrart or Congrkss.?The commodious and elegantly-adorned room in the Capitol is now finished, and must be admired by every one for its exceeding beauty. It is supposed that in the course of two weeks the books will be shelved and tho furnituro (which is now boxed in the crypt) arranged in its proper place. The carpet is tapestry velvet, the pattern designed by Messrs. Clagelt & Dodson, of this city, and approved by the Committee on the Library. It was manufactured expressly for those merchants by a company of Troy, New York. It is indeed a fine and rich specimen of American skill, and shows what ends can be accomplished in this branch of manufactures. We learn that one thousand yards have been furnished by Messrs. Clagett Ik Dodson for the Library, at a cost of two dollars and twentyfive cents a yard. Improvements at the Caimtol.?The Hall of Representatives is now in as great a state of confusion as the East Room of the President's House? the desks, chairs, and all the fixtures having been removed, while workmen are busily employed in frascoing the dome. A scaffolding of no small proportions is required for this operation, which is under the superintendence of Mr. Delamano, of New York, a gentleman who has displayed his fine artistic skill on the room of the Library of Congress. Tlie dome of the Senate Chamber is to be whitened by Mr. Christopher Gill, of this city, preparations for that purpose being in progress. In every direction the visitor sees new paint and whitewash, and improvements oil the old order of things. The pictures in the rotundo have just been varnished, producing a fine effect and imparting a freshness approaching to the original coloring. Appointments.?The Mayor of Washington has appointed Messrs. J. D. Birch and A. Fletcher, auxiliary guards, in the place of Messrs. H. T. L. Wilson and Wm. Cox, resigned; and Messrs. J. W. Allen, Thomas Kirson, Thomas Gordon, William Mockbee, D. H- Leckron, Jacob King, H. Ridgway, W. H. Abell, and C. G. Eckloff, extra policemen, under the recent act - -.1 The Sunday School of the F street Presbyterian Church intend having a picnic to-day at Arlington. Boats will start for that popular resort from the Fourteenth street bridge at several periods of the day, commencing at half-past eight o'clock this morning. Public School-house.?The Board of Common Council have passed a resolution (which awaits the action of the Aldermen) appropriating one hundred dollars to such porson or persons who shall produce the best original design for a public school-house, for the use and benefit of the city of Washington. Horticultural Association.?The next exhibition of fruits and flowers will take place to-day, in the hall over Clagett and Dodson's carpet warehouse. The interest in these displays is on the increase, and the public generally arc admitted to them free of charge. Mr. Fletcher Vkitch, one of the watchmen of the Capitol grounds, has been removed by the Commissioner of Public Buildings, and Mr. Hendricks, of Warrcnton, Virginia, appointed in his place. In Iron Bridge is to be erected over the canal at Virginia avenue, a law having been passed at the last meeting of the City Councils for this purpose. The Concert, near the eastern gate of the Capitol, j'esterday evening, was largely attended; the weather being pleasant. The fountain played on the occasion as well as the Marine Band; the whirling streams of the one being apparently as pleasant to the eye as the "liquid strains" of the other were to the ear. Dogs.?The police officers have commenced shooting dogs which are suffered to run at large contrary to the Mayor's proclamation requiring them to be confined for a certain period. Fire.?A stable on K street, between Tenth and Kleventh streets, was set on fire yesterday afternoon, about five o'clock, but the ffnines were suppressed before much damage resulted.
