ARRtVAL OF THE
STEAMSHIP BRITANNIA. MS PEEK'S LATER IJHELLIOENCE. ARREST OF SMITH O'BRIEN. no riGHTiflia. j The Britannia' arrived at Halifax on tho 31th inst., at 13 o'clock P. M., and left for Boston at 9, A. M., Inst Friday. She arrived at her wharf, at thjr latter city, at 1, P. M ., having made the passage in fourteen days. "The Britannia passed the Acadia at 7, A M., on Friday, about forty miles west of Halifax. ; ' The Niagara made the passage home ia 10 days and 17 hours. ' The steamship Sarah Sands, Captain Thompson sailed from Liverpool on the 7th instant, her regular day. .' i The Bunna Vista arrived at Halifax on Thursday, P. M., and will leave for Boston on the arrival of the next English steamer. The state of affairs in Ireland has material ly changed, though every day seems to les sen the probability of any serious outbreak That this unfortunate country is not now plunged into all the horror of a civil war is not to be attributed to the disinclination of the people to rise in arms, but rather owing to tha want of able and trustworthy leaders. No serious disturbance in Ireland has oc curred since the sailing of the Cumbria. The Tribune's news of tho battle of Slicvennmon is proved to be as was expected by everybo by, a most outrageous hoax. William Smith O'Brien was arrested at the Railroad station at Thurlesj on Saturday evening last, whilst in the act of procuring a ticket for Limerick, where, it is said, he intended to take refuge among his friends. Immediately after his arrest, he was marched to Bridewell, and subsequently was conveyed to Dublin, . ond loJged in Kilmainham jail. After O'Brien's arrest, he - is said to have expressed himself satisfied of the hopeless ness of accomplishing his object, and that he was induced to leave his retreat in the moun tains, becnuae the further he went the more the people seemed to fear to harbor hiin, or to hold any communication with him. He is said to be cheerful, and his wife is allowed free access to him ; other friends are permit ted to converse with him in tho presence of tho jail authorties. Richard O'Gorman, for whose arrest thrpo hundred pounds are offered, on attempting to escape from the country, was arrested by the Coast Guard, after he had crossed the Shannon in an open boat. The notice was forthwith sent to tho police, but before they arrived, O'Gorman had persuaded his captors that he was a mere traveller from Derry to Clare, and left in a boat. He subsequently boarded a vessel bound down the Shannon, for America, in which he escaped. A war steamer had been despatched after the ves ael. ... We have received, by the arrival of the Britannia, English papers down to the 12th instant A g'tard, working upon the Limerick Rail way, has received the reward of 500 for discovering and arresting Mr. Smith O'Brien. The Emperor of Austria intended to abdi cate. , Charles Albert, whos? services in Lombar dy inspire J so much hope for the Italians: has been beaten so badly by tho Auotriuns under Radetsky, that ho will bo compelled to leave the country. The Austrian have recovered nearly all the places that thoy have lost. . Charles Albert is reported to have promised the Lombards to resume the war with the renewed forces. Three American sympathisers with Ireland Dr. McCarron, Mr. Duffy, and another named Bergin, have been arrested and lodged in Newgate. ' There are the usual conflicting accounts about the potato crop in Ireland. But most certainty the blight is making progress in various dis'ricK : The far greater portion of the crop, however, is still quito safe. The insurrection appears to be quelled al most entirely. Offers of surrender have been made on the part of the leaders since O' Brien's arrest, but the Government has refu sed to listen to any terms whatever. An attempt, unsuccessful, has been made in Paris to assassinate M. Thiers by uu nir gun. The accounts from St. Petersburg down to the 26th of July, state that 183 persons only had been taken ill of the L-hoIera ; 258 had recovered, and 84 died. -Constantinople journals to tho 24th tilt., states that the cholera was subsiding rapidly at Constantinople. The fate of Wallachia is decided. The Ottoman Porte has recognized tho new con stitution, and the Ambassadors of France and England have given in their adhesion. The I'orte has protested against tho entrance of Russia troops. The Russians have already retired from Jassy, and will bo replaced by Turkish troops. The cholera is declining in that city. ." Another insurrection in Posen, among the Poles is feared. Tho insurrectionists have succeeded iu seducing from their allegiance of the soldiers of the 18th regiment of infan try, of PolUh extraction. ... Advices from DatiUio report revolutionary tumults in that city. All the better class of the inhabitant, resident foreigners as well, were called out in consequence, and doing duty under arms. Advices iy the Humburg mail notice the intended reoonimencemeul of the blockade J f the Elbe, the Weoer, and the Jahde, by the Danish fleet, on and after .the 15th inst..

Should she recognize the union, negotiations will be immediately com menced for the settlement of the dispute. If, on the contrary, Denmark refuses her recog nition, war will be at once resumed with the military forces of the whole of Germany. . In a few words, all the Germans would riso as one man in defence of their nationality, and a desperate war be the result. THE AMERICAN. SUiNBURY. RATI BDAY. SEPTEMBER 8, 19lt. H.B.

QT" A correspondent of the Miltonian speaking ofthe nomination!), intimates that in consequence of Charles Weaver's nomina tion for Commissioner our "chance for the county printing is not as good as it might have been." As a report had been put in to circulation that we desired Mr. Bucher's election to secure that printing, we deem it our duty to state that we had no personal interest in the election of either Mr. Bitcher or Mr. Weaver. The county printing has been for many years given by contract to the lowest bidder, excepting last year, when for reasons that we shall not explain at pre sent, it was given out privately, three months before the usual time. Now all that we have asked, is to give it out as usu al, to the lowest bidder, and if we do not agree to perforin the work on cheaper and belter terms than any one else, we do not aik for it. Mr. Follinerand Mr. Hofia, both decla red early last winter, that hereafter the county printing should be given to the lowest bidder. It was therefore a matter of indifference, so far as we were concern ed, who should be elected Commissioner as neither of the candidates could alter the decision of the board, nor was either of them, we believe, inclined to do so. We have referred to this matter not for the purpose of complaint or even as an act of justice to ourselves, but to do justice to Mr. Hucher, for whose injury it was made to operate. In a pecuniary point of view, we have always regarded it ai a small mat ter, a? an evidence of which, we only need say, that we have published the American, now eight years, and until last January, we never deemed it of sufficient importance to offer a proposal to do the w ork, in that paper, though often requested. All we ask is fair play, and an equal chance. Will the Miltonian correct the false impression made by its correspondent. Lycoming. The Democratic Con vention of Lycoming county, on the 2'2d inst., nominated Robert Fleming, for Gov ernor. Gen. Wm. Petriken for Congress. Gen. Wm. F. Packer for Assembly, and Simon Schuyler for Prothonotary ; and Ja cob Rodarmel for Register & Recorder. C. D. Eldred, Representave and J. B.

PIOLLETT. . The Evening Bulletin comes down with tremendous force on the Hon. Chas. Brown, member of Congress from the Third District in Philadelphia. Gen. Cameron had op posed the nomination of V. E. Piollett, son in-law of Jesse Miller, as paymaster in the Army, and he was rejected by the Senate. Through the influence of Mr. Buchanan, who, the Bulletin says, promised the wife ol Piollet to stand by him, he was again nominated by the President. Near the close of the session, Mr. Brown ond others, of Piollett's friends, taking advantage of Gen. Cameron's temporary absence, on ac count of his health, procured his nomination to be called up and confirmed, by represen ting that Gen. Cameron, would not return. This conduct Gen. Cameron afterwards publicly resented in such a manner that Brown came out in a letter in his own de fence. To this letter the Bulletin replies with great severity, giving a brief statement of the transaction. The following is an extract : "The truth is, Brown was insulted, and grossly insulted, in the presence of two lead intr democratic members of the House of Re presentatives from Pennsvlvanin ; and the truth is, that he tamely and meanly submit ted to it feelinjr, ns he did, that he deserved the reproach and resentment of the hitih . ... ii'ii lonen man to wnom ne onereu nis nanci, which wns indignantly refused with well ap plied and well merited expressions of con tempt and opprobrium. To.bc sure there could be no credit in insulting Brown, for ever since he entered public life ho has been kicked and cuffed for his impertinence and dirty tricks, till no one would hope to excite a spark of resentment in hisspiritless carcass. The sent he now holds was obtained by corruption, mid the miserable caitiff who betrayed his constituency to place him in Concress, is nt this time a convict, disappoint ed in his hopes of a pardon by the faithless ness of tlv man whom he served." THE WHIG COVNTV roXVENTION. The Wilis Convention to nominate candi dadles for tho approaching election, assem bled at this place on Monday last. The con vention was organized by the appointment of Major Wm. O. Scott of Rush, as President, and the usual number of Vice Presidents und Secretaries, and adjourned until the afternoon. The great bone of contention was the Sena torship. Capt. Samuel Hunter, Col. J. H. Purdy and Charles Pleasants, Esq., were the candidates from this side the river, and Ro bert M. Frick from the other side. The de legates in the Forks came generally instruc ted for Mr. Frick, and the delegates from Shamokin through some strange kind of hocus pocus wero also instructed for him. This, with the absence of tho eight delegates from Upper, Little and Lower Mahonoy and Coal township, secured the nomination of Mr. Frick, on tho second ballot. This tiulookcd for, and unexpected result was received with evident signs of chagrin and mortification, and a great portion of the spectators, though thorough whigs, came out of the Court llintce vowing their determination to support no such, nomination. Mr. Frick was nominated by a vote of 13. Had the convention been full, the vote would have been 13 to 21 n gainst him on the second ballot, and must probably 12 to 24 on the third ballot. We never saw Mr. Bright look more chr-irfnl than he did on hearing that Mr. Frick, would be nominated. He was just about to start for Harrisbnrg, and his eyes danced in their sockets us if they were ready to leap over the delicate nasal ornament, which nature has si lavishly bestowed on him. If ho don't lay out Mr. Robert M. Frick, to the tune of 1000 to 1200 majority in this county, we nut much mistaken in the signs of the times. The following are the balloting for Gov ernor and other olfieei.-i : For Governor. .lames Pollock, 20 Win. F. Johnston, fi On motion it was uuaniiiioiii.lv, resolved, that the delegates bo intruded to vote for Governor Johnston on the 2d bullot. For Congress, three candidates were named, viz: Joseph F.

Scott, wag appointed Sena torial delegate, und Amos E. Kapp, Repre sentative delegate to tho Whig Convention to nominute a Governor. Samuel Hunter and Wilson Hutchison, were appointed Congressional conferees to nominate a candidate for Congress. J. R. Riegel, S. A. B.rgstresser and Henry Gibson, wero appointed Senatorial conferees. A series of resolutions were then passed in favor of Gen. Taylor, und in favor of a la. riff of protection, and denunciatory of Goo. M. Dallas and others, in fraudulently procu ring thx passage of tho tariff of 1846. Kr The Democrats ol Luzerne County have nominated Samuel P. Colling, Esq., for Congress. The last ballot stood 22 for Collings and 16 for H. B. Wright Mr. Wright has the nomination from Columbia county Thm Cholera Comimo. The cholera is rapidly spreading, and is stretching this way with fearful strides. The dysentery and di arrhoea, which preceded it before, are already prevalent here. Does this mean nothing 1 Beware ! In Russia it ia sacrificing its hun dreds per day. It is now in Turkey in Eu rope, aud rapidly coining this way. O" Gen. Taylor. Some of the papers having published articles reflecting upon the personal character of Gen. Taylor, he thus vindicates himself in a letter to a friend, under date of August 5, 1848 from whicn we make the following extract t As to the romantic story about the wound ed soldier at Buona Vista, (in connexion with a Mexican lady) which ended so tragically) and who is said to have been shot by my or der, it is without the slightest foundation, nothing of the kind, or even approaching it ever took place ; nor do I believe wns ever heard of except at Memphis and vicinity, be fore it was published in tho Appeal- It is on a par with tho story that I had Fpoken disrespectfully of, and' otlterwiso ontmcert, tho volunteer; and a tnnre base mid heart less calumny was never propagated. Not a drop of American blood was shed by my or der while in Mexico, nor that of a Mexican, except in the heat of battle. The whole matter contained in said slip is too silly to be credited, nor would I have no ticed pt had I not deemed it proper to reply to your friendly communication. 1 must, from my position, expect to be ns suiled by many unscrupulous editoisof news papers, as well ashired demagogues, without regard to truth, decency, or any thing else. I have, therefore, mndo up my mind not to suffer such things to annoy me, let them emanate from what quarter they may ; but to "pursne the even tenor of my way," with out turning to the right or to the left to no tice them. With considerations of hiah respect and esteem, your friend and obedient servant. Z. Taylor. Important Movement in Politics. Al bany, August 26, 1848. The telegraphic re port of Taylor's letter, accepting the Charles ton nomination, has caused a fever in the whig ranks. Mr. Dawson of the Journal, is circulating handbills, calling a Whig rally at the capital, this eveuining. to take the letter into consideration. This movement, it is said, has tin sanction of Mr. Fillmore. 7i7r graphit Correspondence of N. Y. Herald. The following is the letter referred to, in which Gen. Taylor accepts the nomination of the Democratic citizens of Charleston, with out, however, giving any pledges. If we mistake not, tho same meeting nominated Gen. Butler for the Vice Presidency: Baton Rouce, La, Aug. 9, 1S4S. Sir I have the honor to acknowledge the recipt of your communication of the 2tiih ul timo, officially announcing to me my nomi nation for the Presidency by n large meeting of the Democratic citizens of Charleston, South Carolina, held at that city on the 2ti;h tilt., and over which you were tho presiding officer. This deliberate expression of the friuudly feeling existing towards me among a large nn.l respectable portion of tho citizens of your distinguished State, has been received by me with emotions of profound gratitude; ami though it be but a poor return for such a high and unmerited honor, I beg them to accept my heartfelt thanks. Concluding that this nomination, like nil others which I have hnd tho honor of receiv ing from iiFsrmbkiges of my fellow citizens in various parts of the Union, has been gen erously offered to me, without pledges or conditions, it is thankfully accepted ; mid I i beg you to assure my fiiends, iu whoso bc i half yon are acting, that should it be my lot to fill the oflice for which I have born thus nominated, it shall be my unceasing clToit, in tho discharge of its responsible duties, to give satisfaction to my country-men. With the assurances of my high esteem, I have the honor to be, yourobedient servant, '.Taylor. the presidency. Tho HWtiiigfim 1'in'oii makes the follow ing cumulation in lelatiou to the Presidential vote. Th Union regards the election of Cuss assure, and says, '-We positively claim tho lollowing States for Cas and Butler:" Maine, 9 Illinois, 9 New Hampshire, 6 Alabama, 9 I Pennsylvania, ot Missouri, 7 Virginia, 17 Arkansas, 3 .South Carolina, 9 Michigan, 5 Ohio, 2:i Iowa, t Mississippi, G Texas, I j Indiana, 12 Wisconsin, ' -I Total, 152 This is seven more thaa enough. But tho Union adds : ,:In addition to thus" Slates we hold that Cass may now calculate with ;:reat confidence upon receiving tho votes of three other States viz : Georgia, 10 Louisiana, . K Florida, 3 Total, 10 Of the remaining Slates, we do not con cede to Taylor Tennessee, 1.1 D.dnware, 3 Connecticut, 6 Maryland, 8 New Jersey, 7 North Carolina, 1 1 Total, 48 In each of these, as we think, the utrngjrlo is to be very close and doubtful. Tho New York Journal of Commerce, one of tho best informed journals iu the coun try, iu summing up tho results of the late e lections, says : We aro inclined to think thai, on the whole tho movements of tho Barnburners will help Mr. Cass, particularly their embrace of Abo litionism, ultra Whiggery, and tho odds and ends of factions generally, at the lute Buffa lo Convention. Thoy have thus become as sociated inthe public mind wilh what is in herently unpopular and odious. It requires no great sagacity to foresee the result. We state it now as our deliberate opinion, and wish it to be remembered, that notwithstand ing the reinforcement which they have re ceived from extraneous sources, they will not be able to give Mr. Van Bureu a single Elec toral vote. No doubt they will poll a respec table number of votes iu the states, but it will not be a plurality of the whole and therefore will avail nothing.

' Albany, Aug. 28. A large meeting of the Whigs was held here last evening, to take into consideration the letter of Gen.

A committee on resolutions was appointed to report on Monday evening, in order to give timo for consideration. Tho feeling of the meeting was decidedly in favor of tho demonstrations made by the speakers. The movement is understood to have tho countenance of Fillmoje. It is now snowing here.

" 'Men were not born," he said, Mnfunis were born; men grew." He denied, too, with equal force that men wero created free and equal. "Men are not created : lltre were but two ever created one man i'.ud one woman the one superior, tin other inferior." The commentator of Fort Hill has, we fear not reail his Bible with the attention that he has "Jefferson's Manuel,'' or the '-Hamilton Pupeis," or he would not have placed him self in so antagonist ical a position to scrip ture ns he h is in the above remarks, taken from his lute great speech on the organiza- j f Km of territories, ror example, the good i book reads as follows : 'Yet mnu is born unto trouble as the sparks i flv onwards."

A circumstance happened this week to Mrs. Moruey. tlm wife of a farnvr residing in tho township of Ilibbert, which created much nlurni iu the neighborhood. The wo man is about 3 years old, and the mother of thirteen children, tho youngest of w hom, a child about eight mouths old, shu left in tho cradle on Monday last, about 10 o'clock in the morning, whihi she went into the bush in search of a stray ovorcow. It was in the af ternoon before she found the objects of her search, when she milkud the cow for her own sustenance, soon uflcr, tho catllo separ ating, the poor woman, being under the im pression that the ox would be most likely to lead her out of the bush, followed it day und niptht until Weduesduy morning, when it made the road at Fluuiguu's tuvcrn, 20 miles from London. Having been in the woods the whole) two days and nighty she was so completely exhausted by fatigue and want of nourishment, that Mr. Flnnigan found it necessary to keep her at his house for a cou ple of days before she was in a condition to be removed, when he kindly forwarded her to White's tavern, on her way home. Her neighbors, alarmed at her long absence sturted on Monday afternoon in search of her, and at 5 o'clock iu the evening came up to the cow, which appeared to have been re cently milked. Had Mrs. Morney therefore followed it instead of the ox, she might have reached her home tho same night. Their apprehensions were not a little increased by this circumstance, aud fearing that the wo man would perish, resolved, in the praise worthy manner, to turn out the whole neigh borhood, and not abandon their object until they had found her dead or alive. Some of them remained in the bush all night, while the rest returned tiome with the cow, and having provided themselves with a week's provisions, again started, nearly a hundred strong, at day break the next morning, in different directions in the woods, and not knowing of the woman's safety, were still in pursuit when we received these details yes terday. Huron (Canada West) Gasettt. THE WHIG ANTI-TAYI.OR ALBANY. MEETING AT The Albany papers of Monday contain the proceedings of the spontaneous meeting held at Albany by the Whigs on receiving infor mation that General Taylor had accepted the nomination for the Presidency of the Demo crats of Charleston on a ticket with Gen. Butler for the Vice Presidency. The news created a great commotion. The hall of the Capitol was crowded in tho evening.. Judge Parmclee was called to the chair, ond he read Gen. Taylor's letter. The reading of Gen. Taylor's loiter brought out hisses from the assembled Whigs. Judge P. added that tha meeting was now iu possession of nil tho information on this subject, mid it was foi them to say what action ought to bo taken in view of this extraordinary emergency. "Haswell," .'Dawson," "Collier,' "Wheaton," und others wero now called for with great vehemence, when Alderman Haswell said We found the Whig candidate for tho Presidency repudiating, in effect, the Whig candidate for the Vice Presidency ! We found Gen. Taylor, after accepting a nomina tion which embraced our own Fillmore us well as himself, now formally accepting, and with profound pleasuje, the nomination of a Democratic convention for tho Presidency, and that convention dropping his co-nominee for tho Presidency, nnd substituting Gen. Butler, tho Democratic candidate! That was a thing he could not stand. Loud cheering.

On Tuesday last the railroad train, with a new engine with SJ feet drivmg wheels and live largo passen ger cars attached, containing upwards of 250 passengers, ran from Springfield to Hartfurd a distance of 20 miles in 33 minutes, running time, or at tho rate of SO miles an hour und from Springfield to New Haven, a ilistauci) of 62 miles in 1 hour nnd 30 min utes. This is tho quickest trip ever made in this country with a heavy train over any rail road, and tho road is now regularly run with greater speed than any other railroad in the United Slates, and w ith double tha average velocity of rnilroods ojil of New England. This is owing lo the road being remarkably straight, level, and thoroughly constructed. With engines having driving wheels seven and eight feet in diameter, which have been bronght into use on the best roads iu England there is little doubt that the Hartford ami New Haven Railroad cuuld be run with' per. feet ease and safety ut tho rule of SO to 60 an lour. But thn engine makers of this coun try hitherto have enjoyed to such a degree a mui-opuly in their butiueo, and realized such lara profits (40 lo 50 per cent ) upon it that they have contented to furnish the old-fashioned small wheel engines, and not shown the usual enterprise of our American artians in keeping pace with and generally outstrip ping the improvements and inventions of their British rivals.
