Three additional French divisions had arrived, and the allied for :e at last accounts numbered 200 000 seen. Gen.

B-fore Bebastopol a series of brilliant enteT prizes bet w ten tbe French snd Russians mark the progress of affairs.

Both parties had suffered severely in the night atta ks. Tie commercial intelligence is of great imporV a*ee.

The sales of cotton yesterday embraced ab)ut 3,000 hales, cloving firm, witi an advance of 4 cent per lb. on the higher or liner grades.

Detailed accounts of the outrage committed at Portland, Me., on Saturday evening, confirm in every particular the telegraphic report. It teems quite certain, first, that Mr. Neal Dow by his casting vote as Mayor, induced the Com mon Council of Portland to buy liquor of him, the sale being apparently contrary to the law he has spent his life in framing aud trying to execute; and secondly, that he ordered the militia to fire on the people, when others, as well able to judge as himstlf, saw no necessity for any recourse to bloodshed. With Mr. Dow'b personal character the world has little to do. Whether he bought the liquor in question wiih a view to make money out of it, by selling it to the Common Council of Port" land ? as would appear to be the moat likely supposition ? or not, is not material. So far as the man himself is concerned, we have even little concern with the accident which has set over the ci<y of Portland a ra9h, headstrong official, in whose eyes the lives of his fellow citizens are not worth preserving. But both the transaction in the Council room, and the disaster in the street, are matters of interest as illustrative of the tendency anl effect of the modem fanaticzd temperance mania. It is in structive to note that t*)e man whom common consent regards as the Joe Smith ot compulsory temperance, deals in liquor on the sly, and votes, as Mayor, that the city become his customer as rumseller. The dis" covery throws a flood of light on the early his tory of the prohibitory law movement; we may learn from Neal Dow'b actions what it was ori ginally intended to be. Again, it is useful to watch the excesses into which a man of Mr. Dow's reputed amiability and good sense has been hurried by the fanaticism ot' his party. It is said that some years ago there was not a man in the country of warmer heart or sounder head than Neal Dow. Now we see him rushing alout the streets of Portland like a madman, robbing an organized body of militia ot their arms, ordering armed men to fire on their fel ow citizens apparently without the smallest necessity, and altogether converting the peace ful town of Portland into a perfect Bedlam. AU this is the natural end of a tanatical agita tor. Men who train their minds to work out fanatical tbeoibs, generally lose whatever dis cretion and humanity they once possessed. The mania grows upon them until it absorbs every faculty, and usurps the place of every other topic of though*.; they come to see the world through its medium only; and toe most cherished objects, the mo*t sacred scruples cease to command any attention in comparison. Cot * ten Mather, Judge Sewall. and Phips were not naturally ii human raeD, or fool*; on the con trary, the two Jormcr were men of extraordi nary acquirements and capacities, and all three were born and died with warm hearts; yet they allowed a fanatical mania against witch craft? ibe prototype of the present tanatical mania apainst liquor? to drown their sense and their feelings so completely that, while the fit lusted, no spectacle rejoiced their eyes so much as the hanging of an uuforiunate and innocent woman. Just so, Neal Dow, who ten years ago would have been as shocked as any of us at the slaughter of unoffending citieens, orders his to shoot down old men and young in the streets of Portland; and Mr. Thomas McEl ralh, who is said to have been a man ot remark- j able tumanity before he commenced the manu facture of isms and quack medicines, gloats over the massacre, and compares it, in his pa per, to the Astor place riot. We are anxious to know what Dr. Tyng, Mr. Cbapin, and the Hev. Henry W. Beechcr think of the scene just enacted at Portland. Some of these gentlemen, we remember, told us, at the meeting held at the Metropolitan theatre, that under the working of tlu? liquor law ?? the wails of sadness and anguish should be changed into a note of thanksgiving," with mufh more ol the same sort. Do they consider the cries of murdered men " notes of thanks giving Dr. Tyng, if our memory serves us, referred complacently to his isolated position, there beinn only three or fourclergymen in the v?n of the fanatical movement. Whaf, does be thii k now.' Have th??y who staid away, or he who urpidwitb je-ts and puns the execu tion of a m< asure already tracking its path with blood, best fulfilled tnelr duty to God and man? We hope these rc?ercn 1 gen'.letnan will i reach next Sunday on the event* at Portland. We hope they will prove to the satisfaction of their audience that it is rluht to make laws which cannot be enforced, and whose only fruits are bloodshed and murder. We tmst they will oilat" on the death i f that unfortuuate sailor who was shot dead by Mayor Dow's pvrissn troops? that they will plcure. with their accus tomed eloquence, the harrowing affliction of his ) oung wife, in widowed loneliness ? the blight east u pen bis children, poor little thiols, whose prosjxets in life have been destroyed by Mayor I DvW and the prohibitory U?? that they will do justice to the sufferings of the other urifortu naies who are r ow stretched on a bed of sick mss. oscill .tinft between lif* anddca'h, a< tbeir aonnris open ard close? aud that, having ?tot e this, and having narrated the story of ibe $1 600 worth of liquor bought by M iyor Dowfrcm N?al Dow ibe rum-eller, they will, wHIi thcr h?n<i on the Bible, and their eyes on the feces < t 'heir h- irers, honottly ? xhor' tb^m to do what tn them lies to fa^ilitat i the occur JUU ol liu:o.s The Soou aed Fhi Umwouo?

Your obedient servant, PIERRE SOULE. This is certainly plain enough for the dullest comprehension. We wish it, however, distinct ly understood that we endorse neither the alleged "hypocrisy" nor "cowardice" of Mr. Perry, nor can we admit that he " sweats the Jesuit and felon ail over" till it is proved. We leave those issues between the parties con cerned. Mr. Perry, being recalled, may soon be expected in propria persona. We do, how ever, approve the plan of a history of this ex traordinary mission to Spain, and of the troubles and quarrels growing ont of it, from beginning to end. It is necessary, to fill up the blanks and chinks of the lately published cor respondence, that the public may be satisfied, which cannot be the ease as long as any mate rial facts are suppressed. We want also a clue to the romarkable shufflings of our Premier in his management of this Spanish imbroglio. It is tbe main point. If Marcy can only be un dermined, the whole superstructure ot his aids, agents and accessories will fall to the ground. We suspect that this forthcoming history, which is to unseal the secret of Mr. Perry's alleged treachery, will astonish the country. Let it come. George Law Going Aheao.? "Live Oak George Law" appears to be going ahead at the rate of 2:40. The old fogy party journals in this neighborhood seem to be befogged and un decided what to do about it. " Live Oak George," to use another figure, is a granite boulder, too heavy to be rolled off the track, and too hard to be cracked with the small hammers of tbe old party hacks and organs. The recent remarkably popular biographical sketch of this truly great and practical man, from Plutarch the Younger, published in this journal, has fallen a perfect extinguisher upon all the stale and small beer politicians of the day. The Troy Budget, however, condescends to give this sketch " a first rate notice," and to supply an omission or two of the author. For exam ple, the But! get says: ? We learn from an " old residenter" of this city th*t lhe Hk)um> historian of George is wrong about the flwt employment in which our hero waB engaged in Troy. Our informant says that Law was about toose days an oitl*r for Lr. Haddleston, and that he was somqwait lamous for eating crackers and cheese, and drinking brer and other potations of American manufacture, at a grocery which was presided over at that time by our re sptctea American friend, Mr. Whipple. Very well. The beer here complained of was before the passage of the new liquor law. The party concerned, therefore, caDnot be touched on that ground. Nor do we suppose that "crack ers and cheese" are any disqualification for tbe Presidency. Live Oak George, however, has been a progressive man. Since the completion of the High Bridge be has become a devotee of Cruton water, and has substituted broiled beef steaks and potatoes for crackers and cheese. And the country has been going aheal in the taine ratio. In a word, the upward and onward strides of "Live Oak George" have been very much like those ot the oountry? from small be ginnings to the grandest results. No wouder that the biography of such a man should take with tbe solid American people, and puzzle ibe narrow-minded and " venal politicians." Tbey are not done yet with "Live Oak George." Citizen Robespierre McElrath and the Nassau Bank? Mr. Robespierre McElra'b is gathering up all tbe outside legal opinions h" can Fcrape together to justify tbe enforcement ol tbe Maine Liquor law, and all tbe seditious sentiments be can collect from all quarters m favor of breaking up the peace and prosperity of the Union. In both respects we 1'ear he is doing tfie work of a traitor to the solid bullies* men and business interests of this metropolis. We are not, therefore, surprised to learn that the stockholders of the Nassau Bank, aod the distillers, grocers, liquor dealers aod others doing business more or le;s with that, concern, Lave bad Citizen Robespierre under serious consideration Let the movemt nt be followed op until it is shown that no man whose duly labors ale devotm to the overthrow of soccty and the business interests of the city, can be countenanced by patriotic and business men Let such an example be made ot a leader or two of the Jacobin Club, that the email fry with whom they are associated may learn to do better. Distinguished Visiters ? The Kinney Expe dition ? Among the visiters the other day to tbe steamer United States, the flagship of the Kinney expedition, were the Hon. Mr. Penile ton, late our Minister to the Argentine Confe deration ; Hon. Mr. Toombs, Senator from Georgia; George Sanders, late Consul to Lon don, aid others. It is said Mr. Toombs recout mended tbe running of tbe blockade; hut Col Kinney doubtlt ss remembers the bombardment of Grejtown. But what will Col. Walker think *bcn he airives from California wiui bis titVy men, and invades Nicaragua ou the wc*t side, in expectation of a junction with Col. Kinney frem the east, and gets into the coub try, to find that Col. K is still locked up in our East river? How is Co). Walker to get out again? Who will go his security ? What do the Cmvalrt Wast?? The Charleston Mercury? the organ of the remains of tbe ebivalry of South Carolina? is harping from day to day on tbe perils of the South, and tbe impossibility of a fusion with any Northern party. What does our discontented cotcmporhry want?? a Southern ultra pro slaveiy party, and a Northern ultra an ti- slavery p?rty, aid a collision between them on the Presidential issue? or a safe and conservative national Union party upon the broad basis of Ibe constitution ? If the first mentioned con dition of things be desired, we must say that tbe Mercury , next to tbe New York Tribune, seem- to be laboring in tbe right way to bring it abont; but if a great national constitutional party be the object of our Charleston philo sopher, be is surely ofT the track. No such pi, jty can be formed by arraying the S uih against the North on purely sec t.ufcl ^rounds. W'j not cierclsa a little pail* t BD66 T Wait till we see what wfll be the course of the Philadelphia Know Nothing Council. Perhaps it may inaugurate a movement accept able to the senaible men of the South. Or, tbould this Council fail, there ia jet a hope for Fometbing from the re-awakening democracy. Mr. Wise has put the ball in motion ia Virginia, aid Captain Rjnders has given it an impulse in Tammany Hall which will probably keep it rolling till 1856. Let not our Sooth Carolina chivalry despair. Somethino In It. ? In the money article of one of our evening cotemporaries we find the following sly little notice The atatemrnt in* morning paper that Mr. MrEh-ath baa retue<t from the Preaidency of the Nassau B?ak la ?Dti uc. Some veeki ago he reqaeated Isav* of abaence lor a abort time, which waa granted, bat to morrow morning. we understand, he will resume bis place at the htad of the Board. There is something in the wind. Shouldn't wonder if our business men had found ont that Citizen Robespierre McElrath is a disorganizer and a dangerous financier at this crisis. THE LATEST NEWS.

The municipal election to no* In progress, and, al though great excitement pervades the whole city, jet there is no demonstration of any disposition to violate the peace. Everything is moving on quietly, but under the strictest scrutiny by both parties. The interest ex hibited in Washington in the city elections may, to some, seem strange, yet it must be recollested that the citizens of the District of Columbia have no other oppor tunity to exercise that glorious privilege of freemen? the right of elective franchise? save in these municipal contents. Their voiee is never heard in the election for President, members of Congiess, or any oiher federal officer. Indeed, it has been decided that tbey could not sne in the Supreme Court of the United States, as they were not citizens thereof? neither citizens of the States nor Territories In this isolated, disfranchised position, it is not to be wondered at if the good people of Well ington should make quite a hurra over their city ofli sew. Tbe Commissioner ot toe General L ind Oilier is absent. I understand, on quite an interesting an l important mission. Be is now at Stockbridge, on the east side of the Winnebago Lake, where he has gone to treat with the rcuioant of a tribe of Indians who have ever been the friend ot the white man?" the last ef the Mohi cans." lhese Indians were our friends in our earliest struggles for freedom, and they proved always true to their Br st attachment. Some years ago, the few who aie left, and who are now styled the Motiicanacas, ceded their little patch of land, lying on Lake Winnebago, to the United States, in exchange for a new home inwie far West. They sent out some of their people to examine tbe land given them in exchange, but it could nowhere be found. The grant had been one of such indefinite ness that a location of it could not be made, and tnis remnant of our ancient allies now desire to remain upon their present lanas, and be buried by the side of their revolutionary sires, it to to arrange this matter with thtm which calls Commissioner Wilton away; and al though the matter would have fallen more appro priately under the charge of the able Commissioner of Indian Affairs, yet Mr. Wilson's known influeuoe with these Indians, and with the settlers upon their lands, and his familiarity with the wuole subject, induced (secretary UcClellat d to despatch hiin to arrange with the llobicans a treaty for retrocedlng to them tbeir old home. This should be and will be done: and, although these people desire to continue their Indian peculiarities and tribal customs, yet they are generally well informed, and many ot them highly educated. One or more of the tribe are graduates of Tale College. 1 am pleased to say that tneir white neighbors are all anxious that they should be restored to their ancient domain 1 enclose herewith an important circnlar just issued from the General Land Office, ana also a copy of the new in* t ructions tosued to regtsiers and receivers of the United States land offices.

The TarC. UNION COURtiE, L. I ? TROTPfXO. After ? delightful ride through tbe coantry, we rcached the Union Course in time, yestecday, to witnass the gathering for the great double team race which was to come off in the afternoon The day was charming, snd nothing could exceed the p'eawure of tlie drive. Our way lay through that, portion of the couu'.ry uiuVlly cultivated as market gardens, and from which the mar kets of Hew 'i ork aie principally supplied with vr^e tables. The recent rains had given a freshness and vitality to vogetatiou, and the promise of abuni^at crops bid fair to reward the labors o' thoso engaged in the pursuit of gardening. Everything seamed green and fresh. Sash cereals as we saw looked uncommonly fine, and were rapidly approaching maturity. Grass is very abundant, and the pasture ge uncommonly good. On arriving on the courae, we founi that uiiny had already assembled, and were busily engaged la finau ciering As we passed along tbe road numerous vehi cles were to be ssen at the various hotels, all of which, no doubt, were bound for ths race, fho betting was contradictory ? the mares the favorite at one moment by odds, the horses the next. The betting ranged do srn to one hundred to seventy. At the start ths horees were the favorites at one hundred to fifty. The raca was for I2,0t0, mile heats, to wagons, between Lantern and Whalebone, driven by George Spiuer, and stella and Alice Grey, handled by Hiram Woodruff. On appearing upon the coarse, it was discovered that Stella was somewhat lame in her near fore leg; but it was thought not so much as to materially affect her. Her associate, Alice Grey, was all that. ootUd he desired; snd together, they made a most tnagmdeent t. aui, ?

After two or three clrcult-i of the coarse to stescy their astlon, and several taelVdctiai attempts at startirg, they at length got off, the norses on the Insice. toon after the word was giv<tn, Alice Grey broke np, and immediately after, W halftone, one of the horses, wtnt up also, l?ntern preserving a steady pac*.
