A discount to Agents. ????_? _ The "vlutiny. We publish upoR the firs?- page further particu? lar? of the mutiny on board the U. S. brig-of-war Soraers, which, since it was finit made known, ban been the aimait universal theme of conversation in this city. From Orb account, which beyond all doubt is in the main correct, some conception may be formed of the black horrors prevented by the prompt, efficient, and, every intelligent man must add, hu? mane action of Commander Mackenzie. In look? ing at the transaction we trust regard will not be had meicly to the wretches who suffered death for their crime?, but that others than the criminals will .'?-ceive some sympathy and attention. There ??ems to be a very prevalent feeling just now to shed profuse and most pitying tears over the fate of every incarnate devil who suffers at the hand of Justice, and its minister the Law, for his black and damning guilt; and it is with the greatest dif? ficulty that the slightest consideration can be se? cured to the rights of Society, the security of life or the wrongs of those who have fallen victims v> the spirit which destroys both. In thia case we hope to see none of this mock philanthropy, which can only be indulged at the cost of justice and which is as contrary to every true feeling of be? nevolence and humanity as it. is to reason and oornmon sense. The mind shudders at the thought of the unutterable horrors which would have fol? lowed the success of thia daring and desperate at "*sL tempt. The Somera is the swiftest vessel in the service, was fully manned and equipped and capa? ble of the greatest efficacy in any belligerent cause. Suppose this vessel had beer, converted into a Pi? rate Ship, sailing under the black flag which de _ounces war and death to the whole world, undei the command of so desperate and determined a ruffian as Spencer, and acting in conjunction with , a confederate of similar character. Who can tell how many of our packet-ships would have faller. victims to her prowess?how many hundred* o worthy men would have been murdered in coiri bleoa?how many women would have been devoted to a fate infinitely more horrible than the most cruel death that the hellish ingenuity of devils could devise, and what inconceivable horrors vroulri have made the thought of an ocean voyage a dread and terror to the heart of all the world ! The?< atrecities, and not merely the suffering of the vil? lains who Intended to perpetrate them nil, should be taken into the account ; and we see not how ii is possible, in this view of the case, for a single instant to entertain other feelings than those ef un? qualified admiration and of profound gratitude for the decision and the firmness by which they were all prevented. It seems to us most evident that an attempt to bring in these men in irons would have been the higbt of madness. A bold, desper? ate mutiny had been detected; but how extensive? ly the craw were implicated in it was unknown, though there was reason to believe that a great number of ihem were sworn to effect its consum? mation. Would not the presence on board of the ring-leaders, in irons and under guard, have acted as a constant stimulant to these men to effect theii rescue and accomplish their piratical design ? Up? on their arrival in port their execution would have been certain, for death is the punishment for evei a concealed cognizance of intended mutiny. Who then could bave justified Com.

Immediately upon the discovery of the Mutiny the Sergeant o Marines, who had been upon the sick list and un? able to serve, left the list and performed duty wit) alacrity until his arrival in port?when he was con veyed to the Hospitnl?dangerously ill ; and all the officers and seamen behaved in the most lo\?' and exemplary manner.

The action of Congress in establishing the Tariff, he trusts, " will receive, a? it merits, the most unqualified condemnation of the General Assembly." He recommends Direct Taxation, commends the Umveraity of Alabama to the favor of the Leg sWure, and expresses doubts of the policy of the law by which owners of slave? executed for crimes are entitled to recover their value of the State.

Bancroft'* IstXtm* The purpose of Mr. Bancroft's Lecture befo the New-York Lyceum last evening at the Ta ernacle, was to ?how that the leading principl. which gave birth to the Revolution, namely, pe sonal freedom of mind and of thought, had begi to operate with power among some of the natioi of Europe?though hindered in its developemei by the abuses and corruptions in which it was e; veloped. He introduced it by reference to an ii cident in American History. In 1754, he said, small regiment found themselves beyond the All? ghanies m the Great Meadow. Washington ha managed to throw up good entrenchments, an had prepared what be called a charming field fc an encounter. A small party sent out to recoi noitre returned without finding any enemy. By t?? rales of the wilderness, a party that hides an skulks is a hostile party ; and at night the arm became alarmed and remained under arms from o'clock till sunrise. Next morning it was ai nounced that about five miles off the trail of th French had been seen ; and at 9 o'clock an ej press came in declaring that the French wer close at hand. Through a storm of rain and a dark a night as can be conceived, Washingto with 40 men, marching in single ce-lumn and i "Jtlence, discovered their lodgement, surroundei and surprised them. The French sprung- to thei feet and seized their arms. " Fire ! ' ?aid Wash ington, using his own musket as he gave the won ?and that command kindled the world into Uames It was the signal of the first great war of R?volu tion. There in the Western forest began the cod test which inflicted on the establishments of thi middle age fatal wounds through all the continen of Europe. After a brief action of & quarter o un hour, Washington achieved the victory, ten o the French, including the commander, bein* killed, and 21 made prisoners. When the tidings crossed the Atlantic, and the name of Washington was for the firsttime heard ii the valons *f Paris, it was pronounced by the par tizans of Catholicism with the deepest execrations It foreboded to them the loss of a Continent, anc struck terror to the hearts of the flatterers of Louis XV,?the panders of royal lust. What aspirant then, to the favor of the King would have chang?e places with the despised, the hated, the calumni ated Washington 7 At the very moment when the Fieach were weeping over the tomb of iheir Cum ?riander, who had fallen, was born the man win: A*as one day to stretch out his hands for tlie reliel >f America, to aid the triumph of American Free lorn. Huw did futurity then brood over duties and nonorsfor the youthful Washington, and how man) hopes clustered around the cradle of the infant Louis ! The war which we call the French war, which m the Continent of Europe is called the Seven Years' War?was then begun in America, on the Ohio. Humanity was thea about to organise it ?elf here; it was then to be seen what America would do for Freedom, for Humanity, for Equal? ity. The way for it was prepared by the last war of Protestantism, which, as a European question, nad been intercalated in the progreso of American Liberty. The American question was whether i he Continent should continue to be colonized under he auspices of Protestant England, with its com ?aiative freedom of mind, or under the influence >f absolute monarchy and Catholic France. The A'ar of Protestantism against the Catholic power, .vhich followed, was one in which was illustrated tnoie than ?ver before that moral power which ?ways controls events and guides revolutions. In ?ho previous war of '48 principles had been lost ?ight of and tVierefwre it was sterile of results.? ftie Seven Years' War was a war of parties?o? Reform against Establishment?, and it was prpg iant in results. England then sought an alliance A'ith despotic Russia, and strove to induce the voters of Ausrria to elect Joseph the Second, King ?f the Romans. Austria sought an alliance with France and all Europe stood upon the eve of" a rev* ?lution. Under such a consciousness that the Mid lie Age with all its abuses was approaching its end, did the despotic powers come togeiher?feeling ?ure that the dissolution of Legitimacy and Chaicli -Yuthority was close at hand. For the first time sine?? the Reformation the three great Catholic powers, Austria, Spain and France, who had al? ways been at variance banded themselves together to arrest the progress of free inquiry. In vain they led superior numbers to the field. The heroic ?hivalry of the middle age had lost its strength. In vain vast armies crowded to the field over plun? dered towns and pillaged cities?for no God ot bat ?les breathed his spiiit in?o their hosts. A wide? spread suspicion of insincerity ruined the influence of the priest-crafc ; and Catoo.icism looked for defeat in its struggle against innovation. From i ho pulpits of Paris were uttered sighs over the ?'ornis of Christianity and for the last time the ar? mies of the Catholic world were arrayed against the Protestants. The Protestants had already waged successful war ugainst the authority of the Church of Rome, but now the analysis was made of all existing in? stitutions. By Luther and Calvin the authority of he Bible against the Pope and Prelates had been sstabiished ; and now the appeal was to be made to rwason alone. The spirit of doubt was diffused throughout Europe. Old institutions were doomed to fall l?eforegigantic Skepticism. But skepticism was no result m which humanity could repose.? Philosophy hail declared for Humanity what Cal? vin had for the Elect, its tendency to perfection. But skepticism differed as widely from Freedom as from a creative power ; and though the peace nf 1763 placed the right of private judgement be? yond danger of being impugned, no one in Europe liad yet applied the principle to the affairs of na? tions, and ffeen that all national authority must rest on the will of the governed. In the Northern Protestant Monarchies there ??pi'ting up a disposition for free inquiry. Prussia? .he disciple of Luther, the child of the Reforma? tion and essentially plebeian?offered a home to Voltaire and an asylum to Rousseau. She inspired Lessing to be an apostle of free inquiry, and to open 'he widest views with tegard to the education ot die race. She gave up fier youth to be taught phi ?osoph** by Enianuel Kant, a philosopher, in power of analysis [and universality, inferior to mne ?ince the days of Arist-tle. Germany and all Eu iope hailed the peace of 1763 asa victory of Free lom of Mind. In an age of gigantic skepticism Frederick ths G.eac, ever bold and resolute, set nis foot upon the neck of privilege, and in every question of public law held the well-being of the ?tate to be the paramoont rule. He dsclaredpven justice to the humblest even against the highest, and projected a code of equal laws.of which the glory of die conception belongs alone to him whiie its faults must be chaiged to the lawyers of bis time whose genius was inferior to his design. His ear was ever open to the prayer of the poor: and as in war he stood by the side of the Common soldier, so in peace, the meanest peasant who Kti??cke??at his palace was sure to find a welcome audience. A3 a man. he loved the lineage of he? roes ; but as a monarch, he said. ' I love the line? age of heroes, but I love merit more.' ' Pat- nts of nobility, said he, ' ?re but phantoms ; true worth u wuhtn.

':aoa*??ments, he yet distrust? ed the people ; rejectmg Athoi.m ?, ? absurdity, he yet never attained severity of conviction : satir? izing the hereditary right of kings, be yet doubted th? capacity of the multitude ; questioning the past, he knew not how to reform it; doubting philosophy and religion, he appears the collossai genius of skepticism. How truly the mind of Europe had embraced freedom of i-quiry may bo seen from the fact, that Russia recognized the principle of intellectual freedom. A new light had pierced the Russian nation ; and the Empress blended favor for the new philosophy with the magnificence of Asiatic despot? ism. That this period marks the moment when free inquiry began to be acknowedged appears from the fact that, in 1764, Germany, the creature of the middle age, elected as successor to to the im? perial crown one who strove to bring the pride of prelates down to the simplicity of plebeian apos? tles?to raise serfs to an equality with nobles be? fore the law, and to give to the outcast Jew the privileges of Humanity. This again became ap? parent in Spain, which had at her head the feeble though honest-hearted Charles III., into whose Cabinut, superstitious as he was, the new idea*, found entrance, who restrained the ferocity of the Inquisition and extinguished ira fires, and exiled from the land of Loyola the Society of Jesuit? he had founded, and confiscated their estates. To battie the Protestants the Society of Jesus was es? tablished ; and now from oae Catholic kingdom after another the Jesuits were expelled, till at last, for internal reasons, the Roman See itself capitu? lated to the spirit of the age. The Society of Je? sus was abolished, and the fugitives sought ?heiter from Catholic persecutior But nowhere was the triumph of Skepticism so manifest as in France. It there was infused into every department of Literature and ?Science ; and, though not yet commenced, the Revolution, hushed in grim repose, awaited its evening prey. Au? thority fiad grown so weak as only to provoke licentioasness of opinion. Descartes had intro? duced, and Leibnitz and Malebranche had exer? cised, the spirit of free inquiry; and while the Protestants plead the Bible as authority, Descar? tes, at one bound, reached the principle of the freedom of the individual. Once advanced, it was speedily applied to analyze all the constitutions of the past. Free thought became the mistress of the world, and every body in the saloris of Paris pretended to be a philosopher. Ail were agair.st the Church, and many attacked Christianity itself. Some even opposed all religion, and prepared for the ruin of all social order by denying the validity of existing institutions, and the reality of those great principles of morality on which all society rnu-it be based. On the one side was Voltaire, the Prince of Scofivrs in an age of Skepticism. His power per? vaded all Europe. He excelled in seizing the ex? pression of Society. He was the spoiled child of Society?the glass ia which the brilliant but licentious aristocracy of the day reflected itself.? He sunned himself in the light of Society and daz? zled it by concentrating its rays. He was its idol, and he loved its idolatry. Far from liking the ex? isting authority, he was willing to forget the mass and remain content if the Government would only favor men ef letters. He scofl-d at the Church but courted her priests. He had high notions of ?he power of letters but saw not the essential power of truth. With all his professions he 3erv*ed neither the Sorbonne nor the People. Abhorring the cruelty of Superstition he never saw the footsteps .?f Providence along the line of the Centuries. In Po? litics he sought to be the counsellor of the Estab? lished foim. In Morals ho raised profound ego? tism to the dignity of a theory and made the su? preme love of self the foundation of ull morality. Montesquieu, on the other hand, discovered the title-deeds of Humanity lying buried among the rubbish of Privileges and Charters. His was \ generous nature, discarding alike Epicurism *nd Skepticism. He demanded freedom for all opinions, and was tolerant toward and quick t?? la'horn principles of civil and political liberty.? He saw, with exulting hope, a great nation of An?lo-Saxo!i8 springing up in the forests of Amer? ica ; and such was the life of his thought, so ob? servant was he of all the laws on which society reposes, that all Europe rose up to welcome th? great work which swayed the mind alike upon the New-England coast and the banks of the Potomac, for it was the favorite study of James Otis and 01 Washington. Jean ?lacques Rousseau soon made his voice heard from the Republic of Geneva. He found that he couid no longer flatter the great for a re? turn of favors. Shallow and inconsiderate, he ?et possessed an infinite feeling of humanity; tossed from faith to faith, by the light that Cal? vin had kindled, he read the death signal to the past establishment, and in tones of sadness but not despair, clinging to faith in man's nature and noldiog an infinite trust in God, he breathed out th? spirit of revolution in words of flame and awa? kened a!i Europe, by his voice. Voltaire led the cry against him, that he was setting the poor against the rich ; but without learning and with no profound philosophy, he spoke out the secret that the ancient institutions of Europe were struck ?vith the hand of death, and that if there was life in the world, it was the masses alone that lived. In France the monarchy and hierarchy stood like isolated columns from jwbich the building has crumbled away- The publie rnind had en? larged the sphere ot action and the Court had be? come narrow and contracted. The treasury of France was exhuusted and yet her extravagance was on the increase. The Monarch was buried in voluptuousness and his ministers were weak, ephemeral creatures, who brought into the cabinet their petiy quarrels and selfishness. While the Church, by the mouth ef Massillon, declared that the King should be elected by the people, Louis at the same time assumed power mere despotic ihan before. His mistress, Pompadour, was ca? ressed in public and conrted by the great, and at her death he chose her successor from a house of public infamy, gave her a noble for a husband an?? introduced her into the highest circles of his court ?insulting all that was sacred and decent in *?o ciety and religion. Thus did licentiousness pre? pare the grave for monarchy ; and France stood read*, to attend its funeral?the dead to bury their dead. Rousseau published to the world that the right of sovereignty belongs to the people?a truth which, once pronounced, never could be hushed. But Rousseau lost sight of the great principle ef the age, the right to personal freedom of the indi? vidual. The forgetfuluess of this caused all the bloodshed of the Revolution. Swedenborg, Hume ;md Voitaire all predicted the Revolution, the lat? ter in a letter to D'Alembert, though little did he :t.i;:k that he should live to welcome the American Embassudor, a Boston mechanic, to the Parisian ?aloons. But society always advances towards its end, and humanity, like the tree of the tropics, is never without i's biossoms. In tae West, a new move? ment was in progress. In Europe, not a single writer had reached the idea of a Government of the People. There it was the literary men, the aristocracy, that upheld the frredom of the mind. In America, it pervaded the mass of the People? it was sheltered in their convictions, and expressed :n th??ir Iawr.- It existed as faith in truth, and therefore it had power to create States. In Europe, the remains of an old tradition led the p?ople to believe that in the regions of the West was a fountain, whence gush*?d water that had power to renew the youth of man, and bring back the freshness of his early life. And the ira aition ??poke the truth. There was such a foun? tain, but the life it renewed was the life of Hu? manity, not of the individual. The youth restored was the youth of Society not of any single mem? ber of it. ."
