Cirrat Rc/utblican Alerting.-We had not in our last an opportunity to congratu late our readers on the resuit of the General Meeting of the Republican Members of Con gress for the purpose of designating, in their individual capacities, the persons proper in their opinion to be supported as the Repub lican candidates for the office of President and Vice-President of the United Slates. It is need ess to say we were highly gratified at the result of the meeting. At the last meeting on a similar occasion, when almost every Republican member was in the city, eighty-nme votes were given in, of which eighty-three were foi James Madison as President. At the late meeting, when near ly one-third i f the Republican members were absent, when the federal minori y is much increased, vighty-thrve Members at tended, of whom t ighty-tivo voted for JAMES MADISON and a large majority of whom voted f «r John Lyngdon, as Vice President. In addition to which we are au thorised to say that most of those Republi can *■ who from various considerations do not approve of such meetings, anil w ho there fore did not attend the meeting, cordially finite in approbation of the nomination made by this meeting. The result js most auspi cious to the Republican cause. \\ c find, at a Republican Meeting more numerous than ever was held before in proportion to the number of Republican members in the city, James Madison received every vote giv en in. lie is proven to l>e the favorite of the People; for we iissert w ithout fear of contradiction, that there cannot be enumera ted ten Republican members of Congiess, including those who did not attend the meet ing, w ho under any bias or prejudice, would have voted for any other persons as prefer able candidates for the office of President and Vice-President of the United States. There never had been a nomination of Presi dent of Vice-President which lias received a more unanimous support of the Republican Representatives in Congress.

That in the conduct of Great Britain towards the United Stales for some years past, we can perceive nothing but the most determined hostility toournation.il rights. —She forcibly impresses our seamen, and detains mem mnumanly in an odious scrvi tude—she obstructs our commerce in eve ry channel through which it has been ac . ustomed to flow—she has murdered our citizens wiinin our own waters, and lias made one attempt at least, to dissolve the union of these States, thereby striking at the foundation of our government itself. 2dly. That the government of the United States has manifested the strongest desire to maintain peace and harmony with all nati ons, not only l>y observing a course of equal and exact justice to all, but by proposing to those with whom any differences have ari sen, terms the most honorable and concilia tory. 3dly. That inasmuch as Great Britain has rejected those terms, and still persists 'in violating every principle heretofore held sacred among nations, no alternative is left to the United States, but to choose between War and Degradation.—In the choice of thcsc.it is impossible that Freemen should hesitate, and in trie prosecution of such a war, we pledge ourselves to support our go venment at every hazard. •fib!/. That the conduct of France Sc cf o thcr powers in a.iinice with her, and under her immediate iiioueiice, towards the Uni ted States, has been a arcelv less atrocious ban that of Kugl mil ; and if the pending legociatioii sir aid terminate without an hon orable adjustment of existing differences, we lave full confidence that our government wui direct the most atuve Uoauhties tu be commenced against her for the redress of onr grievances, and the maintenance of our t ights; at the same time we wish it expli citly understood, that in our well founded complaints against foreign nations, Russia and Sweden are not to be included. Ordered, That the above Resolutions be signed by all tbe members of the general committee, and that they be transmitted by the Chairman to the President of the U nited States. in.TUIT TT O# t\T * 4 1 ii. x^fiua mini* JOHN MONTGOMERY, Secretary. llos ro x, May 15.

FOREIGN. FROM LONDON PRINTS. LoND'N, March 21. Mr. Iiorne Tooke, whose decease we noticed yesterday, died at Wimbledon, about 12 o’clock on Wednesday night, m the 77tli year of his age. He led los' the use of his lower extremities, and his dissolution had been for sonif* time expect ed. Symptoms of mortification recently ap peared, which soon occasioned his death_ He was attended by his two daughters, and Dr. Pearson, Mr.. Cline, and Sir Francis Burdett. Being informed of his approaching change, he signified with a placid look, that I he Was fully prepared, and had reason to be | grateful for having passed so long and hap py aide, which he would willingly have had extended if it had been possible. He expressed satisfaction at being surrounded m Ins last moments by those most dear to him; and his confidence in the existence of a Su preme Being, whose final purpose was the happiness of his creatures. His facetious ness did not forsake him. When supposed to be in a state of entire insensibility, Sir Francis Burdett mixed up a cordial for him which his medical friends said it would be to no purpose to administer ; but Sir Fran cis persevered, and raised him, who opened his eyes, and seeing who offered the draught, ' took the glass and drank the contents with I eagerness. lie had previously observed,! that he should soon belike the man at Strasburgh, w ho, when doomed to death, re queued time to pray, till the patience ot the inagist.ttes was exhausted, and then, as a last expedient, . begged to be permitted to close his life with his favorite amusement I of nine-/i*na, but who kept bowling on, with evident determination never to finish the game. He desired that no funeral ceremo nies should be said over his remains, but tint six of the poorest men in the parish should have a guinea each for bearing him to lb • Vault in his garden. He was, we be lieve, the son of a respectable tradesman in the metropolis. It is generally known that he v. is originally educated for the church, and took orders. At the commencement ol the celebrated elections fur Middlesex, in which he took so active a part, lie was a clergyman at Brentford. His controversy with the author of the letters of Junius, his dispute with Wilkes, his zeal in the question of parliamentary reform, his contest for Westminster, and bis return to parliament tor Old Sarum, are events in his long poli tical liic well known to the public. II* a man of uncommon shrewdness. His clas sical and fcciciitificul attainments were of the highest order, especially his philological works. London, April 9.

It is said, an arrangement has bevu suggested for opening to the A mcricans, under certain regulations, a trace to the West-India islands. Embargo—Some advices say, that i>n Embargo has been laid on all the ports a long the coast of France ; others that it was about to take place. By the last advices received from Lisbon it should seem as it no effort was making by Soult to relieve Badajoz. But we have heard that there are accounts of the French troop® on tin- Tagus having actually crossed that river at Aniarez, for the purpose of endeavnr...g to restore the communication with Soult, which the movements cf Gens Graham and Hill had cut off. Gen Stop* ford's division, we believe, is planted iieai-I est the 1 agus, and reports state, that it had sent to Lord Wellington tor another division of our army expecting to have au immediate action with the enemy.

Three hundred thou and men in the Pe ninsula ! and yet 50 or 60,000 more „.rc ne cessary to reinforce them, though they tell us there is no regular Spanish army to con tend with, and none but “contemptible gue rillas !” If this be the fact, what encour agement dues it not hold out to prosecute “t Spain against an enemy whose toi ce it occupies to bitch an amount, and whose armies it thins to rapidly as to render it necessary to drain France of 166,OOo of I her population annually to reinforce them_ , while yet, with this large force, and this constant drain, the country is as much sub dued in mind and heart, as little French as it was the iirst minute the Tyrant set foot in it. The Picture would not be c< mpletc with out corresponding naval preparations equal ly active and equally formidable. Hence we arc told of fleets being equipped, and. vessels launched at Genoa, Cherburdi_ Rochefort, Antwerp and Venice. °Oi.e of these vessels, the Rivoli, of 80 guns, has been launched at Venice—for the use of our Navy ! Hue is now, we suppose, on her way to a British port, under the escort of her captor—a British frigate ! An article from Lisbon, March 31, states : “ A letter from the Camp before Badj jor, dated the 27th, states, that a Spaniard in the town had permission of the Governor to depart. On his arrival at the English, lines, he was searched, and there was found, sewed up in the collar of Iris coat, a small note directed to the French Gen. Soult, informing him that the garrison had only ten days ammunition left. The writer adds, that in consequence of this infonna tion, it was thought that the Governor of Bauajoz would not stand an assault, but that it lie did, it would cost a number of lives. It is said, that Gens. Hill and Graham are go ing to from a junction to prevent Marmont .from uniting, with the army of Soult. Disturbance at Sheffield.—It is with ex treme regret that we communicate to our readers, another of these instances in which a misguided populace commit acts of out rage, thus aggravating the evil which they would remove or alleviate.
