At Warrington, on the 13th Instant, Mr. Glad stone delivered a speech on tbe liritlsn ttnaacm, in -which he Bald: '! ventured about bIx weeks or two months ago to call attention to this sub ject in a meeting at Hi. Helen's. I stated, with great moderation of langunge, that of which X do cot intend to qualify or retract one single iota. (Cheers.) 1 intend, on the contrary, buth to corroborate and to enlarge the assertions X then made (cheers) but I did tuen state mat within the two years during which the present government bad been In office the sum or xa.C00.UU0 had been added to the per manent expenditures of the country. Mow, I did not lay the exclusive blame of that augmentation upon the existing administration, and the reason that I did not lay upon them the exclusive blame is that, as an observer of publto affairs within and with out the walls of the IXouho or Commons, I can not but be sensible of these two truths in the first place that the people are the natural de fendersof thelrown Interests (heir, hear) and In the second rlace, that the diligence and watchfulness with which the publlo mind has at some periods been directed to the control of the publio expenditure have of late years been very greatly relaxed. You may think that It is a reproach to you. You may think it a reproach which comes from one who hns no right to make it. Gentle so en, your true friend is the man who speaks openly the sentiments of his mind and his heart. (Cheers.) You ask me, perhaps, why is this? I will tell you in one sentence. It is because there are knots and groups, and I may bay, classes, who have a constant and unsleep ing Interest in feeding iherast-lves on the pro duce of the pubiio industry. Toe counterpoise to this perfectly natural tendency on the part of individuals and classes is the vigilance of the public mind. (Cheeis.) Tue present gov ernment goes to sleep, the other power never goes to sleep. On the contrary, it Is watching for every opportunity; there is no single descrip tion of individual interest in the produce of the Industry of the country, but it is always awake to consider what opportunities it oau form to improve Its position. And unfortu nately there is an unhappy circumstance allect iog the condition of the publlo servants, whereas men in private life, when they im prove their positioa, whether In commerce or manufactures, whether they improve the pro duce of the soil or the mines, when they Improve their own position they improve tbe position of all other classes; but, unhap pily, when those who have au interest in the public service im prove their own position they do not (and I do not see bow the dimoully Is to be avoided) improve our position. SPAIN. An English Candidate for the Tnrane. Paris (Oct. XI) Cor. of London Standard. Spanish affairs continue the chief topic of ice day. The general feeling here is that, in spile of the denials of the seml-otliclal press, there is every reason to believe that Prim aud Berrano mean to propose the Duke ot Edin burgh to the cortes as their future King. Tue argument of the London limes, which can Had nothing more conclusive against it than the old-womanish plea that being a Pro testant be could not retgu over a Ca tholic country, Is viewed here as weak in the extreme. Your contemporary ought to know that the present revolution is quite as anti-Papal as it Is antl-Bourbonlan, and the fact of their fatuie sovereign being what the London Times calls "a heretic" would not be a bar against his election. Your contemporary might have reflected that there is a very nota ble example .of a "heretic" sovereign ruling sncccscrulTy over a country quite as intensely t'albotlo as Spain itsell. King Leopold X, or Belgium, was none the less beloved and re spected by bis subjects because he did not go to mass. Such childish reasoning in a paper of such standing is surprising. No doubt the "illy season" accounts for it. Prim on the Future. A telegram from Paris ol October 12, evening reports: General Prim has addressed a letter to the I'ai Is Journal Le Gaulois, thanking it for the sympathy it bas shown for the popular movement in Spain. The General expresses astonishment at the impatience of that portlou of the French press which considers that Spa lu is not setting to her work fust enough, and addf: "Eight days sufficed for us to overtnro a dynasty tnree hundred years old and to estab lish a new government. We shall not delay now to consolidate our position through a con stituent Assembly on the basis of our pro gramme, which is known to you. We suall then have succeeded in attaining the political Ideal of contemporary Spain, namely, a really constitutional mouaroby fouudod upon J.aa most extended liberal basis compatible with that kind of government." Popular Progress ana Hope. from the London Star, Oct. 12. Whether a Bourbon or a Cobourg Is to rule at Madrid, whether the dream of a federal repnbAo is to be realized or whether the tradi tion of a reunited Iberian klugdoni is to be accomplished, is of little Importance compared with the fact that the statesmen ot Spain, whether civilians or soldiers, are united in a policy consonant with the toneot liberal opin ion throughout Europe, and in a dotermi. nation to carry the unsparing prun-lug-knlfe of administrative reform into every department of the publlo ser vice. It cannot yet be ascertained wnether this latest effort for the regeueratiou of Hpaln will be crowned with the success whloh we are free to say that it well deserves, or whether the (lumbering evils of eocleslastiotsni and mili tarism may not recover strength to crush the ?ood seed. But one thing Is clear, the popular tellngln Europe is thoroughly in syiupittny with the revival of Spanish liberty, and the publlo opinion of the civilized world would unanimously and justly condemn any attempt on the part of a foreign power to coerce or to repress tbe endeavors of the Spanish people to settle in their own way the stable foundations of a free government for Spain. tr":ji wm GENERAL NEWS.

Continental Treaties. La Prance of Paris lndlreotly mentions the one uiincuity wnion prevents me Bouieswig business being satisfactorily settled: It 1 the nariiclpatlon of Erunce in the treaty of Prague, which was quite lndlreut.and which l'russla would discrace herself In tne eyes of Germany If she tolerated for one moment. The treaty of Prague is a trealy drawn up between Prussia and Austria, and though one clause was in wriMi on the cresslne instance or the French Envoys at Berlin aud Vienna, she bas no right Wb&lfeVer to insist uu u utcuuuui Aid for Crete. M. A. Papadarl. member of the General Assembly of the Cretans, writes to a London Journal In correction of the telegraphic reports Horn tbe East, that tbe Cretans, in their letter to bcr Majesty Queen Victoria, did not ask for n British protectorate, but for assistance to enable them to unite their country with the igaow oi ureeoe. The IimiiRnrntlon or Rev. Or. McConh an President or the College of Mew Jersey, Special Despatch to T?te Evening Telegraph, Princeton, Oct. 27. Princeton Is full of stran" gers. All tbe trains reaching here to-day from Philadelphia and New York are crowded. Car rlaees are coming up from tbe surrounding conntry in hundreds. The alumni of the Col lege or New Jersey are all present. Thedlstln" tlngulshed speakers who are to deliver addresses on tbe occasion are here. The students of the Institution, wearing their college badges, are thronging the streets In droves. Ex-Governor Pollock, of Pennsylvania, arrived on the 10 A. M. train. .The Rev. James M'Cosb, D.D., LL.D., will have a most brilliant Inauguration as President of tbe College of New Jersey. The students and other participants are already gathering and forming In line. Special Derpalch to The Evening Telegraph, I'binckton, N. J., Oot. 27. Tue Inauguration of Rev. Dr. McUosh to-day as the President o Princeton College bas been a grand holiday co caslon, and this usually quiet and sedate old town bas been alive with bustle and activity Tbe fair sex seem to be even more interested than the black-coated individuals who are more immediately concerned in tbe proceed logs; and such a flutter of ribbons, rustling of silks, and other evidences ot feminine excita bility have not been seen In this neighborhood for many a day. Tbe election of Dr. McUosh to tbe Presidency of Ibis venerable college ba given general satisfaction. His career as Pre sident of Queen's College, Belfast, Is an assur. ance of bis entire fitness for tbe responsible position that bas been conferred upon hloi. and it is expected tbat under bis administra tion of affairs the College of New Jersey will more than sustain Us well-won reputation. The new President, on his arrival a lew days ago was honored with a grand reception by the students, and the favorable impression he then made bas been more than confirmed by a better acquaintance. Dr. McUosh is a remarkably fine-looking man, and his venerable, stately appearance, no less than bis suavity of manners Insures him the respect and admiration of all who approach him. The students took to him from tbe first, and this Is no small point in the way of making his management of the affairs of the college a success froai the very beginning. Dr. McCoeb's reputation as a scholar has pre ceded bim, and It Is confidently believed that he will be no unwortby successor of Wither spoon, Edwards, and others who have esta blished Princeton College lu its present Influ ential position. Every available seat in the church where the inauguration ceremonies were held was filled soon after the doors were opened, the ladles, as is usual on such occasions, being tbe most eager to obtain good positions for seeing and bearing everything. In fact, the gentlemen were quite crowded into the; background, and they bad to obtain what sight they could of tbe proceedings through a cloud of ribbons and curls, which perhaps rather enhanoed the agreeableness of the prospect than otherwise. The procession formed at the College Chapel, according to announcement, at a quarter past 12 o'clock. General Caldwell K. Hall,' of the Class or 1857, officiated as Grand Marshal and tbe procession was formed in the following order: Grafulla's Band. Grand Marshal. Orator of the Under Graduates. His Excellency the Governor, and the Chancel lor oi tne state. Ex-President and President Elect. Oiliclating Clergy and Orators. The Board or Trustees. The Faculty or the College.

Members oi tne esenaie ana nouse oi ttap. resentatlves of the United Slates. Distinguished Strangers. Alumni aud Laureatl or the College. Graduates und Students or other Colleges unu seminaries. Citizens. Tbe seats on the lower floor of tbe church were reserved for the procession, which filed in in proper order, and when all were seated his Excellency Marcus L. Ward, Governor of New Jersey, and ez-oQlcio President of the Board of Trustees, took the chair. Tbe ceremonies opened by the performance of a fine musical selection, and this was fol lowed by the delivery of aa Impressive Invoca tion by Rev. Jonathan F, Stearns, D, D., a member of the Board of Trustees. The seventy-second Ptalm was then sung, after which the following programme was gone through with: Address of Welcome on behalf of the Trustees, Dy tne iiuv, iuaries xiouge, u, u,, uu, u oi tbe Class of 1815, Professor lu the Princeton Theological Seminary, senior member of the Board of Trustees.

His forehead is high and dear, and bis mouth lndliates bim a a man of great firmness and strength of will. He has Just enough of tue scholarly stoop to betray bis sedentary avooa tlorj; yet bis step Is elastlo, and In all respeou be seems like a vigorous man, to whom tne ex erclve of mental or bodily powers is never fatlgulDg. His hair Is grey, for be is fastap proucbiDg the age of threescore years, and be wears bis whiskers In the Englisb style. For sixteen yenrsDr. McUosh was pastor at llrechen, in Scotlaud, and for tne fame length of time occupied the chair of Professor of Login and Metaphysics in Queon's College.

The College mid Nome of Km Graduates. Tbe New York ZWbune of to-day bas the fol lowing: The College of New JerFey" Is now 122 years old, If we reckon from the date of its flrtjichar ter, which was not regularly accepted, fue Rev. Jonathan Edwards was Its drat President when the College buildings were atEliziueth betbtown, He died in 1747, and tbe new char ter was granted in the following year, wuen the College was removed to Newm, and the Rev. Aaron Burr became its President. He was the sen in-law or Jonathan Edwards, and the fat her or Aaron Burr, a graduate of tne College, and at one time Vloe-Prestdent of tbe United States. In 1756 the College was romovod to Prlncton. This was during Governor Belcher's administration; and it was proposed to call the main building by bis name; but the Gov ernor modestly declined tbe honor, aud had the hall, at that time the largest building In tbe country, named Nassau Hall, m honor or King William IU. During the Revolution Nassau Hall was used alternately by tbe British and tbe Patriots as a hospital, aud to this day it bears more than one mark of tbe deadly struggle in which the con tending forces engaged within easy ride range or its peaceful wails. At the time nr the bailie or Princeton a portrait of George IX hung upon tbe wall of the old chapel, now a part of the library. When tbe fray was at Us height a cannon ball crashed through the bulldlug, tear ing bis Mnjesty's likeness out, bnt leaving the frame uninjured. Six years afterwards the Con tinental Congress sat in the seoond story of the builuiug. The commencement ex ercltes of the College were then be ing beld, and Dr. Ashbel Green, after wards President or Princeton (1812-23), was the Valedictorian. All the members of tue Continental Congress were present, and among them sal George Washington. To him turned tbe young speaker, and In a burst of fervid eloquence which electrified the assemblage gave thanks to tbe great warrior whose valor and wisdom were soon to make him the Idol of the world. This, it is Bald, was the only time General Washington was ever known to be present at a college commencement. Shortly afterihe memorable occurrence recorded above, by request of tbe Board of Trustees Washing ton sat for bis portrait, and it now graces tbe south wall of tbe Library, luolosed in the soil same frame which once held tbo portrait of his Brltannlo Majesty, George II. Tne artist the eider Peale, Introduced into tbe picture a portrait ol General Meroer, of Virginia, who was mortally wounded at X'rlnoetoa a portrait remarkable from the faot that the artist bad never soeu the original, but painted It from General Mercer's brother. In the back ground of the painting Is a glimpse of the bat tle and a view or the College, near it one of those glassy streams that in their brilliant path mirrored tbe desperate strife that helped to set ( nation free and win a rescued woil i; that viewed tbe deeds of men who live In grateful hearts; tbat laved their bleeding limbs and hymned their requiem. Nassau Hall burned down lu March, lS02,and was rebuilt, trie old walls still staudlnx. Again, in March, 1855, it fell before the flames, but the old walls remained firm, and It is now, tlioua very plain indeed, a solid pile that may stand lor centuries. Dr. Edwards was succeeded In the Presidency by bis sou-in law, Dr. Aaron Kurr, in 1718. After bim came Dr. Samuel Davles aud Dr. Wltherspoon, one of the signers of the Declara tion of Indepeudeace, a native of Scotland, elected Just a century ago. Then oitne Dr. Smith, Dr. Ashbel Green, Dr. Carnahan, and Dr. Maclean the last four regular graduates of the college. Dr. Maclean, before his resinn1 ton, at tbe last commencement, had been for tidy years conrected with the institution, aud for bis support tbe trustees have recently made ample provision. Among the graduates of Prlaoeton were Richard Stockton, one of the signers; James Madison, fourth President of the United Siatet; Dr. J. Addison Alexander, the great linguist and commentator; Luther Martin, Brockbolst Livingstone, Samuel L, Southard, Bepjamin Rush, David Ramsay, Nicholas BldUle, Theodore Frellnghuysen, of New Jer sey, Berrien, or Georgia. Governor McDjvvell, of Virginia, Tapping Reeve, or Connecticut, Justice Wayne, of the Supreme Court, and a host of others whose names are known all over tbe land, and far beyond it. Among those who have been aud are Professors in the institution, I may name Preressor Henry, of tho Smith sonian Institute; Dr. Torrey, the botanist; Professor Dodd, the mathematician; Dr. James W. Alexander; Professor Stephen Alexander, tbe astronomer ; and Professor Guyot, now Pro fessor of Physical Geography and Gdology at Princeton. At onetime, about thirty-five years ago, one sixth of tbe Senators of the Uulted States were alumni of Princeton. Up to that lime one-third ot the chief law officers of the Government and one- flit h or the members of the Supreme Court, were also her children. Her reoord as au educa tional institution is one of which the whole country should be proud. Besides what she has done for the world in furnishing teachers for ber own classes she has sont out a noble host to other temples. She has supplied 30 College X'residents, and nearly 10U Professors In Colleges, Theological Seminaries, and Law Schools. She has titled 60 Senators for their duties as Repre sentatives of a free people. More than 20 foreign Embassadors bave called ber ahna miter; elgat iuduts of tbe Supreme Court owe much of their fame to ber care; and nearly U0 Governors of States have acknowledged their indebtedness to ber. It is a fact not generally known that the first Professor or Anatomy in this couatrv was a graduate or Princetou. X ineau Dr. William Shipper), or Philadelphia. Tbe first medical diploma ever given in the United States was given to another Prluceton graduate Dr. John Archer, or Maryland, in 170i. He won It at the Medical Sohool ot Philadelphia, In which Dr, Shlppen was ror mauy ears an honored teacher. Pi lncelon sent tort 'a warriors too, and more than one of her sous were struck down within sight of tbe roof under which be had learned bis best lessons or patriotism. When tbe great Rebellion broke out she sent ber quota with the rest. Frank Preston Blair was one or ber ohlldren, but, like Aaron Burr, another, be bas not hela to tbe promise or bis youth, nor hns be followed the teachings or biseurly guide. General Uanse vorrt he who bunted Mosby was another: and the lamented young Hugh Janeway, twelve times wounded, and killed ut last Just before tbe Rebel hordes came under tbe yoke; aud brave Tolles. or tbe Sixth Corns, whom a Rebel ballet carried off when Sheridan rode down to Winchester town; and a bundred others, not known to fame, but brave men all, whose memories shall never die. All these, and more, 0J41 rriuoetou mourns io-aay. The student! of Hamilton College have formed a Grant and Colfax club.

President Johnson was the whipper-in of this weak, vacillating concern. The condition of affairs at New Orleans excites serious apprehensions here, and demon strates the utter incompetency of General Rous feaa to preserve order, except by allowing the Rebels to have their own way. It is expected this subject will engage the attention of the Cabinet to-day, Republicans here are indignant that the authority of the Government is sur rendered by an imbecile officer into the hnda of bloodthirsty Rebel.
