llie constitutional or iiiodnale Opposition make it a
point of voting against Ministers on this as well as every other question. with the view ot coinpolling Ministers to resign and getting into power. The members of this op position do not wish war with America, but they Hatter themselves that when once in office, they will find Home means ot settling nutters to general satisfaction, and contrive to keep their places besides. The Republican opposition, composed of a few members only, in the Chamber, systematically vote against every .Ministry, which iIocm not acknowledge a Rcpublicun Government, mid do not consider that they are sent to the Chamber tor any other purpose thuu that of bringing about a change in the present form of government which shall convert it into a Republic. The t’arlist opposition, of which M. Rerryer is the leader in the Chamber, uot much with the vaino view n* the Kepublicunn, ut> to the overthrow of the present Government; but their aim, of couisc, is a third restoration, lie it in the person of (diaries X., his son Louis Anthony’, or bis grandson Legitimacy is the idol of their adoration, though, be sides the priests, the disciples of their faith would lie rather embarrassed to satisfy their ownselvcs that the cause of legitimacy is worth a single straw, and ought to insure the continuance of their devotion. This party (the Carlists) is more steadily fixed in its purpose than the two others which divide the opposition in the Cham ber. It is aware that at present there is no appearance whatever that the object of its hopes and wishes is at hand. It finds no other promise but in the prosix-ct of an interruption to the pcaco which the country is at pre sent enjoying. That peace is tho greatest possible im pediment to the success of the Curlist cause. It shows by every day 's experience that it reconciles and attaches more and more the French people to the present Go- i veminent, and that the youuger branch is fixing itself firmly* on the throne. Iiilerim! commotion is no longer to be hoped fbr by the Carlists; their friends in the ' endec are no longer able to raise their hands; their coadjutors in revolution, the Republicans, have proved too insignificant a minority to be again soon templed to ' make an attempt against the present Government. Not being allowed, then, the hope of arriving at a third resto ration by means of internal commotion, or even through a republic, they see no other means of possibility to that end than a foreign war. Une with the United States may check the growing prosperity of tlic country, and bring about dissatisfaction. “Let the war tuke place, tlien, they exclaim, “ice have nothing to lose by it but we may gain all we hope for.” ’ I . . l'V , vle “‘"guiarly pertinacious opposition n Inch tiic bill relative to the American indemnity en counters intlie Chamber of Deputies, and anion<r that portion ofthe press which is not devoted to the Ministry. Not one ol the journals that call themselves independent has chosen to enter minutely and dispassionately into Wie merits of the question. Not one of them has under taken to prove that the statements contained in the report ofthe Chamber s committee, on which the recom mendation for passing the bill was founded, were incor rect, and did not justify the measure proposed for adop tion. I heir attack ugainst the bill is by violent decla mation. Some of them would have tho Ministers im peached for daring to think of such a thing us paying money to the Americans; others would let the conse quence* of a rejection be wliut they would, but the Ame rican claim must not be paid, and Ministers must go out. t has never, in short, been our lot, to witness such ex ertions to pervert the merits of any case whatever as those which are now made every day by the Paris four mils, calling themselves independent, against the bill tinder discussion in the Chamber of Deputies. No one need any longer w ondor at the decline ofthe influence ol the 1 res* in France.,' What now occurs is sufficient —to account lor it. On the present question, os on all great questions alter the last Revolution, the press has divided itsell into special organ* of different purtics. It will at tend noloager to public feeling, nor does it care about expressing any thing of the kind. Its opinions are the opinions of some party or coterie. Its aim is to promote u party object. Among the mass of the French iieoplc a desire certainly exists that the country should once for all get rid ofthe American claim*. Of that feelin", how ever, not a single organ of the press lias found il'conve uient to proclaim the existence. So great has become the habit of inure party controversy and party iii.iikcu vering, that even those journals w hich are devoted to the Government have neglected to speak of what the public generally thinks and says on this question. Their discus sions and their argument* on the subject are confined to the speeches and the proceedings of the Chaniher of De puties, aud to angry polcmit/ne with the iiapers which most strongly differ from them. The debate on Thursday had been adjourned till the fol lowing day. ... . . Lomoom, April 20. ”u have received by express the Paris papers of Sa turday, together with a letter from our correspondent, dat , Saturday afternoon, a repoit ofthe early part of that day s proceedings in the Chamber of Deputies, and let ters from Bayonne ar.d -Constantinople of the ldth in staut, and 2tith ult., as well as from oilier parts of the coutiueut. CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES—April XS. I 1 he order of the dry was the discussion on the arli clesot the bill relative to the American claim. The first urticle i« mit,.ti,u . A he MinRttw cl Financo is authorised to take the necessary measures for tho executVin of the 1st und 2d articles of the Treaty signed on 4t\ of July, 18J1, be tween the Kiugofthc French and llie United flutes, tho ratifications of which were excliauged at Washing’ ton, on the 2d of February, I8H2, and according to the terms <>t which, the sum of 23 millions of francs t* to be paid by France.” M. Isarnbert said, lliat at a moment wiion Lbe'Cham ber sc,wd resolved to vote the 23 millions demand, d by America, a serious question was presented for con sideration—the question relative to the interest of .the money about which nothing bad been said in f-;. " .thi" **7? bul ,*° whjSlOl^IindrrLt of 7 7 ^PccaByreh-fftrjrHcre the inlerrup centrc become so clamorous Don. Deputy s voice was nearly inaudible,in the gallsry. 1 ho .President's bell, though handJed.with tole rable energy and dexterity, was, for a length of time, rung without efloct. We w«r,e only enabled to catch a tew difflointed sentences, by which it appeared that the lion. Deputy argued against the payment of interest of any kind; and contended that a treaty passed with a Constitutional Nation could be nut in force only atlor «t had received the sanction of the Chambers. This fact, be thought, could not have escaped the attention ot the Americans themselves. . In conclusion, lie ^thcvfoJlaM^ing,4U aaieuaiUPnt. to tlic Gt I lie Minister ol/Finanoe ia authorised to take the ne cessnry measures lor the execution of the 1st article of tlie treaty, signed on the 4th of July, 1831, between the iving of the French nnd the United SStutos, and accord* mg to which, tlie sum of minions is to he paid by France. The above sum shall be carried to tlie budget of tlio State, and paid , without interest, in six successive xnsuimenhi, for each of the years 1830, Id37,.l»:i8, lb3'J, M. Chxraraaulc said, that tlie intention of the Hon. Deputy who had ju.st sat down, was evidently to pro* P'— the suppression of the interest granted by the trea ty, from the date of its ratification by the Government; or in other words, to declare his opinion, that the inte rest became due only from the day on which the Cham ber might pass a vote in favor of tlie bill. He (M Ch a ram&ulc) therefore proposed tli- following a* a Bui,. amendment to that of M. Jrarabort: - The sums shall bear interest only from the date of the promulgation of the present law.” The Hon. Deputy added, that he pro posed Iim amendment through a feeling of respect for the prerogative of the Chamber—(Hear.) M Isambort agreed to M. ChnramauleV amendment. J he President of the Council (the Duke tie Broglie) said that the amendments of Messrs Isainbort nnd Cha rsinaule would have the effect of annulling one of the Articles of the treaty—in fact the entire treaty—and of forcing Government to make another. The first amend ment ho considered tantamount to the pure aud simple rejection of the Bill, ami be thought by Adopting the se cond, the Chamber would exceed its powers CViuruiur* Irori tlie 4'tfCfnkaet.) For these reason* Government •ouu. admit Wither of tlie amendments proposed. M. Chariunaule conceived that the objection urged by the I re side at of the Council had been presented too late as M. Bignon s amendment, which was also calculated to do "way with the treaty,bad boon dn«Mi<#,ed. He (M Charamaulc) contended that tlie treaty could be delini tivc only niter the vote of the Chamboi*—that the French Government could treat only conditionally—and that the negotiations into which it might enter, could he. rati nod only by the Chambers. F rom the date of the rnti flout ion, nnd from that alone, France could acknowledge tho debt and pav interest on it. M. CharamaulC. Amendment was then put to the vote and rejected. The President next rend no anieudwjnt of .VI. Lcyraud, who proposed that (lie following words should be added to the first article of the Bjll:— “ The payment of the IB,000,000 shall take plaoe only affei the (/ovornment shall hove received satisfactory ex "f U‘" ,>***'I«nt the Uni ted Btates, dated 2d December, 1834—and afW such rT. plxostioiis ahull hxvo been officially pub'ished.” I ho rreswlent likewise read on amendment proposed by Gen. »fid which, he remarked, was nearly Similsrto that of M i^yraud. Gen Vala/.e's’a.mndn.er t was to the effect that— " The payments to be effected ip execution to the first article of the present Mill,shall take pla- e onlyafWlbe > reneh Government shall h ive received satisfy p,rv ,.x. ids nations ns to the message of the President of the Fmled Btates, Hated December 2, 1834.” M. Feyraad remarked that the difference between hit amendment and that of Gen. Valar.e was, that the for mer bow upon the 1st article of the Bit), and the latter upon the 4th. He considered it unnecessary to dwell at any length upon his own doc.urr.rul as the spirit and "T?"'"# •£ 'l "**« ® vide of.—The offensive language of the President of lire United Btates had been mitdisb ed throughout all Ktiropo, and the insulted dignity of * ^'’'’•’‘■quired satisfactory explanations. J M. Odillon Barrot olmerved fiiat the authority of Gen Lafayette might he invoked on a question of principle but r.nt a ]^euniary question. V 1 ’ bought Keoutrwy to the dignity of ■ the ( hamber to vote the If.', million, before eat&faetary explanations had l.een given by the Government of the United State*. He wished to know if it was t»ue tbnt one ot Ir. Livingston's lutiers to Ins Government con lamed the following passage :—“Tile I! it will shortly be presented to the Chambers; l think the President ought, in his message, to speak out, mid boldly." Was it true that Mr. Livingston had written these words? .. J,*u'. President ol the Council, with great warmth:— “ No, it is not true." The President of the Council; “ I deny the fact."— (Murmurs ) M. de Ranee declared his opinion, that the Minister, in tliu answer ju>t given by him, bud by no iiicuti* refut* ed^his(the Hon. Deputy's) argument. 1 lie I resident ot the Council slated that Government IihiI always intended to act in the spirit of the amend ment proposed by General Valaze, but that he and hi* colleagues disapproved of M. Leyraud s amendment; be cause although they were ready, when called upon, to give explanations to every member o' the Chamber, they objected to a clause that would bind 'iieui to publish such documents as Government might receive. 1 Im Minister ol the Marine offered some explanation on the mission of the French brig the D’Assas, which lie insisted had been well received ut New York. He then entered into some nautical details on the mode in which the American frigate tlu* Constitution had paid the usual honors to the French Hag. M. Glais Hizoin observed that the portion of Mr. Li vingston's correspondence which was prior to the Presi dents message, and which had not been read to the Cham ber by the Munster of War, contained a letter dated 9*Hh November, and lf:C», and stating that the writer had been informed by an influential member of the French Cham ber, that the debate on the American claim would proha bty be postponed till ntlcr the President's message had reached France, ana that on the tone of that message might depend the vote on the bill. The Hon. Deputy thought that the Chamber ought to demand the retrac turn ol that letter written by Mr. Livingston. (Hear Irom the loll ) ' M. Maugiiin thought that the Chamber ought to ob tain satisfaction not only for the American President's message but also for the correspondence which hud pro voked that message. He then said, that in the course of the ensuing session, himself anti his colleagues would demand from Ministers If the dignity of Franco iiad been satisfied. . ^ M. de Alarmicr considered it a dangerous precedent that newspaper articles should be allowed t-.. interrupt the harmony existing between two friendly nations. M. Muuguiu replied that the point in question had no reference to newspaper articles, but related solely to otli cinl communications made to the American Congress. 1 lie let article of the Hill, was then adopted, with the amendment of Gen. Valaze. The Opposition Depu ties both of the right and led voted against the article; those of the led centre (the tiers partij in favor of it.— I he Articles 2 and It where then adopted without discus* sioii—they are to the following effect:_ Art. 2. 1 he sum ot 1 ,.>(10,4)001 which the Government of the United States, has engaged to pay in six annual terms in discharge of the claims presented by France in behalf of her citizens, or of the Public Treasury, shall, m proportion as the recoveries are made, be credited to a special article of the Hudgct. Credits shall bo opened to the Minister ol the Finances to a similar amount, for the discharge of the claims which shall have been li quidated in favor of French citizens. i\n. *>. /\ Lotuinitter, cxricismg its functions gratui tously ami uonied by ILuyfU Ordinance, shall be appoint ed to examine and estimate all claims addressed to Go vernment, and to divide the sum of l,500,000f. amongst ull the claimants having a right thereto, and if necessa ry in proportion to the just amount of their claims. All claims must be presented before the 1st January, 1837, under penally of forfeiture of the same. The claimants may appeal to the Councils of State against the decision ot the committee, according to the forms and within the delays specified for matters in litigation. The same right is reserved to the Minister of Finances. An ac count shall be annually laid before the Chambers of the payments effected on the huih of 1.500,000f. Should a portion of Ibis sum remain unemployed, it shall be re turned to the Public Treasury. The Chamber then proceeded to the ballot on the en semble of the Hill. The following was the result: Num ber of votes, •I2U; absolute majority, 214; for the Hill. 2f!); against it, 137. ' The Hill was accordingly adopted. The announce ment to that efleet lrom the President occasioned conside rable sensation and tumult. Adjourned at six o’clock.— [Lel\ silting.] ( From the True Sun of Jljnril %0.) This morning we received the whole oftlie Paris pa pers of Saturday. An evening paper (the Messager) gives the particulars ot an extraordinary sccnse, which occurred on that day in the Chamber of Deputies. M. Mauguin, one of the members of the extrine loft, had given notice the day before, that if the Ministers did not communicate to him the original papers on the subject of the American claims, lie should be obliged to submit to the Chamber a remarkable communication which he had received. The Minister not having in the interval com municated the papers, M. Mauguin ascended the Tri bune, and alter a luminous discussion oftlie question be fore the Chamber, produced the singular document of which he had spoken. The following arc the facts oftlie case :—A person wrote to the honorable Deputy, that if he would examine the original documents he would imd a falsification in them, which the texture oftlie pa per itself would expose. It seems that the paper upon which the statements are written was manufactured at ooeriod subsequent to the date of those documents M Mauguin further stated that it was this strange discovery which had induced M. de Polignuc to reject claims thus palpably stamped with fraud. It is difficult, says the Messager, to describe the sensation which this discovery produced in the Chamber. Mauguin, before quitting the tribune, renewed his application for the orignul paper*; but the Minister of Foreign affairs (the honest Due de Broglie) asserted that none existed, fn Tenly to this assertion, it^js all but iin|io3sil>kr'to suppose that the Cabinet of WasbingToTHMi not furnished the French ne goeiators with an account of claims. Will any one believe that tiic American Government, on dcmpiiding an in demit^ from France, said to the Government of France: —“ 'i ou must find out yourselves what you owe us.” 1 here must be therefore, an account, though the Due de Broglie who has been long cried up by bis party as a man suns tuche el sons re/troche, lias not thought it con venient to produce it. In any other ltepresenlaiive As sembly, the discovery of so gross a fraud would have pro duced an immediate vole of censure against the Govujhp lurnt; but, in the Chamber of IJepu^MM^ough it con lams imiiMj^^morablejiidivi>lu:i]^^[^^^Hi* of the ma iM inistcn^M^m^^ arc, we flBBH^^ooTax to lead to such a result. It was reported in the Chamber, that it was Prince Po lignac who had made to M. Mauguin the communication relative to this strange incident. (From Die IxmuIoii T/mr».J . London, April 21st. J lie I ar/s pjpL-rn which we received at a late hour this morning by express, put us in possession of the whole report of the Saturday's proceedings in theChani ber of Deputies, by which we lind that the debate on the American claims had been brought to a close. The bill, as amended by the committee, proposing a grant of 25, 0()0,<M)(Jf. was voted by a majority of 2d!» against L57.— According to an amendment proposed by General Va la-zo, to which ministers assented, and which was agreed to bv the Chamber, the indemnity is not lobe paid until after the f reach Government shall have received satis factory explanations with regard to the message of the President of the Union, dated December 2, \*M. Two other amendments— one, that no interest should be paid, and the other, that tile interest should only coin inoitcc trom the date ot the passing of the bill, were hath lost. From some observations in' the Journal des De bats upon the passing of this bill, it would appear that Mr. Livingston is not expected to remain at Paris in his diplomatic character, nor return thither as Ambassador, should he go to America. The Journal thus expresses itself—" Jt n probable that Mr. Livingston will think proper to be the bearer himself to his government of the account ol s.11 that Jius passed here, in order not to ex pose hirnscll a second time to tin* inconvenience of hav ing his correspondence published. It is probable, also, that the American government will think proper not to send him back to Jrunce, iu order to spare Inin the in evitable embarrassment metier which he must labor after the written expressions that have hewn attributed to him in the course of the debate. VVe do not blame the American Government for bav ing given so complete and so prompt a. publication to Mr. Livingston's letters; perhaps it was demanded by the forms and practice of her institutions; but such a publicn tion must often have the effect of sacrificing negotiators, it being impossible to require that the negotiator who ha? spoken publicly ill of the country to which he is ac credited, should.continue to he well received by the Peo ple lie has offended. These arc the reasons which induce ! us to look upon the longer stay-of Air. Livingston in pHris, j a* very difficult, and ins .return as very uncertain. ! ,v .

Thou- u reason to believe that on the ; I other side of the Atlantic, much more than on this, the ! I point of honor has the first place, and the question of the | dollars is treated as a subordinate matter. Mr. Living-I ston very naturally feels himself personally ill used, and on that account his opinions may be liable to biue; but the probability seems to be, that the demand for satisfac tion, it made in the same spirit which has dictated the I uiicereiiiotnousdisiiii8s.il of the Ameiicuu .Minister, will have raised up u greater difficulty than that which the r rencli Ministry nave just overcome. Mr. Livingston remains here until alter the law has passed the Chumlicr 1 of Peers, lie then proposes to pay short visits to Kn gland and Holland before returning to the United States. London, April 22.— Since the passing of the American j Indemnity Bill, nothing of any consequence had taken | place in the C hamber of Deputies. That vote appears, I in the ioeantime, to have given no satisfaction to any party, save and except the Government and its vile re , turners. Air. Livingston, the American Minister, does not appear to he satisfied with it, it we are to judge from his preparations to quit France, which have suffered no interruption in consequence. 'Flic American ship of war, too, which had arrived in the roads of Havre, still kept aloof from the shore, and showed no disposition to pay the French Government the compliment of placing herself under the protection of its guns. This coolness lias not escaped the notice of the public, and one of the consequences of the discovery has been a fall of the Ucntcs. Into what disgrace and embarrassments corrupt Governments fall.nndTiow easily they might avoid them, il they would but follow the vulgar maxim, that “honesty is the best policy.’ It they would only act upon this trite but golden rule, they would be pursued by the bles siugs, instead of tin; execrations of mankind; und this world, which has been converted by their wickedness into ■ a 1‘andenioniuiu, would become a paradise ns God, to judge from the bounties which he has lavished on it,— I strewing it in profusion with every thing that can delight the eye, rejoice the heart, and ravish the car—evidently designed that it should be. But the Priests and Kings, though they pretend to hold tlicii offices from God, have so completely succeeded in disfiguring His handiwork that it has long looked more like u hell than a heaven. Let us take courage, however; the tide is evidently turn | iug; injustice shall not always reign paramount—and we are sure better days are not far off.— True Sun. Li\ kki-ool, April 2;>th.—The protracted debate in the French (chamber of Deputies, on the American In demnity Bill, was brought to a close on Saturday, when, as we anticipated months ago, the French made a virtue ol necessity, ami the bill was carried by a majority of om hundred and Jiftijtico votes—there being 2811 for, and 137 against it. Every amendment proposed by the op position (except one) was rejected. Alter the bill was passed, the opposition proposed, first, that no interest should he paid, and next, that the interest should com mence only from the day ou which the bill was passed. 1 he Chamber of Deputies negutived these propositions; consequently, the whole sum of 25 millions of francs will he paid, together witli the full interest from the date of the treaty. The arrears of interest will amount to near ly 5,1100,000 of francs. All, therefore, that France has gained by the delay—by the shabby shuttling about the W noie uusiuesa—t»y me attempted tricking—by the aim at national swindling amounts to this:—first, that the national vanity has been sorely wounded by the threats of the American President; secondly, thut the honor of France has been tarnished, in the eyes of Europe, by this swindling transaction; and thirdly, that lull interest must be paid on the money since the treaty was signed. All things considered, France comes outo'l the business in u most pitiful and unenviable manner. It will he a lesson to Louis Phillippc for the future. As u salvo, however, to the wounded vanity of the nation, the French ministers have consented to insert an article in the bill, to the efleet, that not u single sous of the debt shall he paid until the Government of the United Slates of Ame rica shalhnpologize to to the government of France for the sharp passages in the President’s Message, respect ing the treaty. The American Executive apologize to Louis I hillippe and his cabinet! They would as soon eat the treuly as humble themselves in this manner. Piusidvnt Jackson might be inclined to say, “ If you assert that you did not mean to play the rogue, then 1 did not mean to call you a scoundrel;” kut'lhis would he an explanation from only one part of the Executive, and,consequently incomplete. Such a stepastliis would require tiie joint concurrence of the President, the S011 ate and the House of Representatives; and, if we know any tiling of the Americans, they will never give an otology for having chosen their own wuy of forcing France into the payment of a just debt. \\ hat will be done? Must the matter remain as it is? No such thing. France must yield. The idea of uu npology is veiy good, hut that apology will never be made. Mr. Livingston will ho recalled, (his time of office be i ing nearly at an end,) and the French ministry will pre j tend that this is a virtual acknowledgment, by the Uni ted States, that their ambassador acted injudiciously!_ I he Americans will get their money, nnd they merit commendation for the manly manner in which they have asserted tueir. lights.

I heir contents, however, are not very important. ■ Lord Elliot (from England) had arrived in Hpain as a mt dialor between the great hostile parties, vix: the ' Queen, supported by the friends of a liberal system of I Government, on the one band, and Don Carlo*, backed fiy the admirers of the old and absolute dynasty, on the other. Both parties had determined to 'receive him in the most splendid anti friendly manner. The object of ! bis mission will no doubt be accomplished, and Tea re (attended by a more happy system of government, and all the comforts and blessings that attend he r train) once tuoie throw her cheering mantle over proud Castile. General Mina had officially resigned the command of the Queen a army, lie stales that he had never intend ed. (by reason ot the bad slate of his health.) to assume the active duties of the field. The stores having now been brought up, and the army placed in u situation for effi cient ofll-nsive operation, it requires an active officer to take the direction and be continually with it. Mina has had much to contend with, mid has acquitted himself well. |i is said (Jen. Valdez is to have the command. In Ireland Mr. O Dwyer lias boon again returned for Drogheda. On the lirst day the poll stood for Mr. O'Dwyer lH(i—For Mr. Plunket 100.

May 15. •You are aware, no doubt, that Nassau has been made a tree port, and several of the Spanish Houses intend to try that route—that is, they will send their vessels to ports in the U. S. to clear for Nassau, discharge the curoo there, so as to get the certificate by means of which to claim back the duties paid in the U. S., then take in again the cargo, and bring it here. Unless some further ex citement is added to the present law regarding the Span ish (lug, its provisions will be circumvented by the route to Nassau,and wc call your es|M*cial attention toil. It remains however a question, whether u!\er all any effi e tual measures can Ik- taken, as Nassau will probably be come a depot for your produce, and the Spaniards will go there direct to purchase it and bring it here."

It is now our painful duty to report the particulars of that appalling circumstance, which we could only slight | ly notice, m our number of yesterday, us our impression was m arly worked oil ut tho time of its occurrence. On r nday morning, between the hours of two and three 0 clock, (a time when most ofuur citizens arc reposing from thc|r labors, and perhaps, not even dreaming of the dreadlul calamities of the fellow creatures,) that a large and extensive building in Canal street, known as the 1 lanter s Hotel, fell to the ground with a tremendous crash,and gave a shock to the surroundingneighborhood, similar to that experienced from an earthquake; un awful pause ensued for a few seconds, when the smothered voices ol several unfortunate individuals who were deeply buried beneath the ruins, issued from the pile; the alarm bells rang, and hundreds of our efficient fire men rushed upon the spot, and made every exertion which humanity could dictate to rescue the miserable sutlerers from the jaws of death. We understand there were irom sixty to seventy persons living in the house, some o whom succeeded in effecting their escape, with but little or no injury, but we ure sorry to add, that seve ral have lost their lives or been miserably mutilated.— How truly do the Scriptures say, “ in the midst of life we are in death.” Many of those poor creatures had been joyous and gay in the morning, and at night they went to bed “to rise no more A/any of them, perhaps, had taken “ heed for the morrow,” and have been thus cut off “ in the midst of hope.” God grant we may be all prepared to meet him, should it “seem good to him that such a calamity should overtake us i ft is his mercy that there have not been many more victims in the list, as the billiard-rooms had been remarkably full, and several persons whom we have seen had scarcely quitted them when they heard the crush. As usual on such awful opportunities, there were some demons in the shape of human beings, who repaired there for the sake ot plunder: we are glad to hear, for the honor of our city, that some of them have been taken and imprison- j cd in the gaol. During the three day's revolution in I 1 aris, some persons, who were similarly industrious, were instantly seized, and the populace punished them ! with summary justice; we almsot regret not to have a parallel to relate, for if summary justice is ever justifia ble, there never wus a stronger necessity for it than on the present occasion. i he following are some of the melancholy particulars : Mr. Morton, slightly wounded ; Mr. Kennedy, severe ly injured; Mr. Hannah, dead. These gentlemen, to getlicr with Mr. (>ril)ith, were nil from Unvis county, Kentucky. Mr. (Jrillitli was not in 1 a building at the tune of the catastrophe, but instantly repaired to the rescue and relief of Ilia friend*. Mr. Talinnn, portrait painter, had his arm greatly mashed ; Mr. Hans escaped unhurt; Mr. Morass, slightly injured. The lifeless bo dies ol Messrs. Mooney and Hopkins weie taken from under the ruins, at about two o'clock, yesterday. Mr. II. Center, exchange broker, escaped uninjured ; Mr. E. Eller, dead; Mr. Ennis, of the Daily News, bruised; Mr. (Jailbird, clerk to Messrs. Ainsley A Ityan, wound ed ; Mr. Ellis, bruised; Mr. Armstrong, Jr . hurt. Mr. Cullerton was saved by a beam resting on the bed po»ts; he extricated himself by making a passage through the partition to the next house; he escaped with a sliglit scratch. b A Frenchman, name not known, severely injured. Various reports are In circulation as to the number of persons who were within the walls when they gave wny; but it is supposed there were not less than sixty. What became of the whole of them, can only be surmised; many, it is said, miraculously escaped nt the instant, while one shudders to think of what the ruins may yet conceal from the view. The thanks of the community is merited by Mrs. Khali, who, with the most active humanity, threw open tin doors ol her Jioiisc, situated on the opposite side of the street, for the reception of the wretched sufferers, where every cars ami attention that (behest feelings of our na ture coold dictate, is bestowed upon them. The numerous firemen and other citizens vied with each other, on this occasion, with such noble efforts as to preclude our having an opportunity of particularizing. The f.holers has again appeared in the city, hut cor- \ tninly not to such an extent nor with such aggravating symptoms ns to excite apprehensions in those who are temperate in their drinks, abstemious in their diet, and careful in their habits. Most of the cases that have oc curred were of persons arriving on board the steam boats, whore they had become careless and intemperate; ami many of them were but the progress of disease from dysentery to diarrhea and death. Hut every fulal in disposition must now lie termed cholera. There have not been less than about MO or lf»0 death* from Cholera dining the past 10 day*, hut in almost eve ry instance those cases have been confined to the Icvoo — passengers on hoard steam or flat boats. Should not some municipal code of sanitary laws be established on this subject t There is not very much fear of the cholera spreading among our citizens, as the disease is proved to be not Contagious; and precautionary measures should be adopted for the sake of all.—ffeto Orltans flee.

Thomas, having on board 1V> officer* and troops of the Portuguese battalion which revolted and committed the horrible out rages at Port Praya, of tvhich so account has lately been published. The Boa Nova was one of the two ves sels, which w<it seized in P. Pray a by the insurgents, on board of which they embarked with their booty, in tending to make for the United States. The U N.’s con sort (with all the valuable plunder on board) preceded her a few days, with the understanding that she was to touch at the port of Bravo, for provisions, and wait the arrival ot the If N.j but when the latter arrived, the other sclir. had obtained her supplies, and put to sea, since when they have heard no tidings of her. The Boa Nova then set sail for the United States, via St. Thomas, where alio slopped 801110 time, and nliippcd as na visitor, Mr. Beniamin Webber, ol Beverly, (Mass.) second mate of the late ship Columbia (cast away) und two American seamen, to take her to Philadelphia; after a passage ol* 12 days, she arrived offthe Capos of Virginia, when being nearly out of provisions and water, puliuto this port for sundries. A few hours after the sclir. anchored in our harbor, t.ie Portuguese Consul, Walter de Lacy, Esq., made ap plication to the civil authority for the arrest of the persons on board oi lier, on a charge of piracy, and the Mayor ac cordingly took measures for transferring them from the vessel, under a guard ol the volunteer companies of the Borough, to the Navy Yard for safe-keeping, to await the decision of the District Judge on the case; hut before this was done, the Consul, upon a representation that the sclir. was under the Brazilian Hug,and therefore not with in his jurisdiction, withdrew his motion for the arrest. The Mayor then convened a Court to consult upon the case, which on as full an investigation us could be* obtained, decided that the civil uuthority of the State had no jurisdiction over it. There was no evidence «»f any act of piracy having been committed: for, although in the flint instance they compelled ilic cuplaiti of tho sclir. to take them on board, he still held Concession of her, and was paid to his satisfaction for ringing them over to the United States.. As the per petrators of an ntrocioiis crime on the Portuguese ter ritory, of which the evidence was strong enough to have justified their arrest and detention on the application of the Consul, under a treaty stipulation with other powers in utility with the United Stales, they were also beyond the jurisdiction of our Courts, there being at present no such stipulation in our treaty with Portugal. This is to lie regretted, as such an accession to our population is notut all desirable. They dignify their atrocities ut Port Prava with the name of revulution, and thus seek their justification. They come ashore in squads and parade the streets with the nonchalance of old acquaintances: we have seldom seen bolter looking men—quite military in their carriage and cleanly in their persons. Their arms were all left at St. Thomas. The vessel, though hound to Philadelphia, will not we understand, be permitted to proceed until her character is satisfactorily ascertained. Mil. Livi.voston.—A letter from Paris, dated April 22d, stale* that Mr. Livingston would sail from Havre on board the Constitution frigate, bringing the official intelligence of the passage of the Indemnity Bill, instead of proceeding to England or Belgium. Commodore Elliot left Paris on the 21st April, to re join his frigate. The debate in the French Chamber of Deputies on the Indemnity Bill, lias occasioned at least one duel between two of the members; they exchanged a couple of shots, without effect, when the nocomls interfered.

N\ e concur with mostol the leading sentiments i»ihe following Communication from one of the most re»p«ct ahlo Delegates of the late Convention.—For ourselves, we shall go for Martin Van Huren. as President of the IJ. Stales—but not for Richard M. Johnson, us Vi«v President. With all our respect for this gentleman, we cannot support him for that office—Hut we earnestly re commend R to our Correspondents, to avoid all illiberal and irritating discussion upon the subject. Let us “cj tc.nuutc nothing ’ of the services of Col. Johnson, and*, above all, “ let us not set down a word in mulirc.” We recommend the same caution to our Republican Hre thren elsewhere. Passion, impetuosity, violence, may essentially injure our cause. A little discretion may save us from the urts of our enemies ul home, and the dissciilions of our friends at Baltimore. W lien our Delegates met their Republican brethren, ill the Convention, they cordiully united with them in the nomination of .Mr. Van Huren. Here we think iliey should have paused-as soon ns it was ascertained that they were divided about the Vice President.—It would have been better, in our humble judgment, to have trust ed to time, (and we have IB months still before us.) to bring about a better concert of operations, than to have proceeded to make any nomination, which is more cal culated to distruct than to unite us.— Hut, situated as we are, what are we to do? We must rally around the nominee for the first office—We must keep our Party united upon this man, who will carry out our principles. Hut, though Virginia cannot support Col. Johnson, for the second office, vve must patiently await the progress ol events, and avoid all divisions and angry discussions, us tar as possible. '1 hough we ca/inol support him, yet vve feel u due respect for his services. We ntuku every allowance lor his friends. We see the designs of our enemies, and the mischiefs which threaten our Party. We must cultivate harmony among ourselves. As an essential means to this desirable object, vve must retrain from all unnecessary and irritating discussion. Ry pur suing this course, what follows? Time will allay tho irritations which have been already excited. We keep united upon the Presidency. We avoid all tlirisions upon an office, which however important in its own character or in its contingencies, is of a secondary and subordinate consideration. We leave it to future events to produce greater concert of operations. The Republicans will correspond, and amicably consult each other s wishes. As one of the Delegates writes us, ‘*vve vy»I1 have this matter properly adjusted in our Legisla tive Caucus." 'l'lie members of the Stute Legislatures may be fortunate enough to devise some mode for pro ducing conciliation and concert. And if every thine else should fail, we must nominate our own Electors*, with instructions to vole for Mr. Van Huren, and with the discretionary power of voting for such Vice Presi dent, ns in their opinion may be most strongly recom mended by Ins own qualifications, and the circumstan ces of the case. .is things nrc nt present, this is our wisest course._ Are we mud enough, to break up the whole Republican party, on account of any quarrel about an individual candidate, or about a secondary otiicc in the Govern* meut ? Do wo not know that the Whigs are chuckling at the prospect ot our divisions? They wore beaten almost overwhelmed in Virginia—and they are sciz-’ ing upon tiiis new torch oi discord, to blow us into a name, and to destroy us by our own divisions. Hut then trill again Ji ml them selves mist a ken. Their new bubble will hurst,before it is fully blown. We should indeed be the infatuated dolts they wish to make of us, if we were to full into their devices. ‘ They uro now attempting to sow the seeds of dissolution among us. There is not a Bank man, nor an Internal Improvement man, nor a Federalist, nor u Nullificr, nor a violator of the great Right of Instruction, nor a Whig of any hue or complexion whatsoever, hut is delighting hi nisei I at the prospects ol some dissension in our ranks. Their only chance of success is drawn from our divisions. // the great Jlcpublicati Party should /c broken up, wo pray you mark the consequences. The Bank man alrea dy Hatters himself with the renewal of his charter—the Nullificr, with the promotion of Mr. Calhoun—the Fe deralist with an extension of the powers of the General Government—-the \V higs in \ irgiuiu ojoMakiug courage in the midst of their despair, and arc iiImiJv urging upon Mr. Leigh to retain his scat, and set at defiance the will of the People, and the Instructions of the Legislature.* The great Right of Instruction, so dear to Virginia, is to be sacrificed by the Whigs, as soon as the Republicans quarrel and divide. i hi« is one of ilie great triumphs which they promise themselves from mr divisions.— Another is, to defeat our candidate for the Presidency to take the election from the People, and transfer it to the II. ot R. For, already we find them more animated in pushing Judge While in the South where they were pre viously preparing to abandon him—And in the North the friendsof Mr. Webster are rallying with determined spirit. For example, an invitation is given in the Bos ton Centmcl of the 23d i nst. in these terms: “'1’lie Winns of Boston, and its vicinity, and all otlieis friendly to the nomination of Da.niki. Wfmsteu, for President of the United States, are invited to assemble in Fanned Hall, on Thursday evening, the 23ih inst., at half past 7 o'clock. ’—(Signed by Mr. Appleton, and more than 300 of the Boston Whigs.) The “Cuutincl ” in making this annunciation, calls the notice of its read ers to this “meeting of citizens in the old cradle of liber ty, to consult on the present political condition of the country, anil to concert measures for concentrating the public sentiment in favor of the elevation of Daniel Web ster to the Presidency. We say to concentrate, because it is manifest that the public sentiment is already deep and Strong, and extensive in favor of that incomparable Statesman, end all that is uatiling is to have it embodied and concentrated to a point. Kvery intelligent man in tile nation, who is nut an office-holder, an office-seeker, or blinded hv sectional prejudices, is ready to say, at once, that Daniel Jf ebster transcends all his competitors in point of talent, experience, and comprehensive rie.ics ns a States man.”—“The proposed meeting in Faneuil Hall is invited by a lar ge number of the most respectable citizens of Bos ton. 1 hey constitute the hone and muscle of our busi ness community. They are neither office-holders nor office-seekers. They are intelligentolfltp radical men, seeking only the permanent good and honor ofllie conn try. As such, how do they appear in contrast with the time-serving hirelings, who have sent their agents to Baltimore, to nominate u man for the most illustrious office in the world, who has no more prominent claim to the sufl'rnges of tin-people, th.iii is derived from l.is be ing the nomikf.k of Andrew Jackson, and Hie Chief of V — 000,1 “,ltr »'C nomination of Daniel Webster by tins members of the Legislature, we suggest ed in the G’entinol, that a meeting of citizens ou”ht to be held in Fnneuil Hall, to concentrate, the public opinion toward the great object ice hud in view. The meeting bus been deferred, but it is never too late to perform our du ties ns good citizens, and we trust that the meeting of next week, will be crowded and effectual.” Khali we then throw away our advantages, break up the Republican party, for a subordinate consideration break down ail those great principles, which constitute their creed—assist the re-charter of the Bank, destroy tli® gtriR Right of Instruction, defeat an election by the 1 <*opIe, and (runt it to the intrigues and mnnagpincnt of a drilled party in the House of Representatives? And what inducements have we to commit such a political suicide i Because we now differ about the man, who is lobe run for the uccond ollico under nomination. Huch madness will scarcely characterize the good and wise People of Virginia. We teli these worthy Whigs, that in these airy dreams of success, we not only trust, but j believe, that they will find themselves most egrcgiously deceived and disappointed. b * As for ourselves, while we freely announce that we cannot go for Col. Johnson, we will do all that is fairly in our power to avoid every thing which may be calcu lat'd to irritate hi* friends, or divide our own ranks. We reooinincnd the same course to our Correspondents, to our friends in Virginia, to our Republican brethren every where.—Good sense may keep our wounds from fester ing. Time may soothe and heal them altogether. We shall, therefore, cultivate harmony with "our distant friends. They should do the same by their brethren in Virginia.—We can assure them, that in recommending Win. G. Rives, our Delegates were not actuated by any narrow, local, or ambitious spirit. They considered him as one of the most prominent Republicans in the Union —and especially us one, who, at this peculiar moment, I represents in Ins own person the great and vital princi ple ol Instruction, and who bail been llic greatest stil ferer and martyr in tbc cause. But, we are not wedded to Win. C. Rives. We would most cheerfully support Philip P. Harbour. VVe would take up Williani 8inith, who ling endeared himself to the Republican Party, by bis long devotion to our Stale-Right Principles_of which ilcvotion, he has lately given a splendid evidence, in his magnanimously withdrawing from a contest for Congress, Itecause be would not purchase his election by sacrificing his Principles.!
