FRANCE. We have received the Paris papers of Sunday. The only intelligence of t!ie slij;hte-;t interest in them is the current report of the retirement of Marshal Soult, and the death of 'the oelebrated Royer Collard, in the 82d year of his see. " France," saya the Journul des Debuts, " has just losVone of her great ornaments, one of the men who have exercised the highest influence on the spirit of the age. M. Royer Collard died u the 4th instant, Rt his estate at Chateauvieux, near St Aitfnan, jn the 82d year o!' his age. M Rover Cullard hud bcnn President of the Chamber of Deputies member of the French Academy, and Professor of Philosophy at the College of France. M. Koyer Collard, accompanied by his lady, left Paris on the iyihof Aueu.'t, m a very veeme stave, on me zmu ne was attacked with fever. On the 31st Dr. Ardral, hisson-in-law, Madame Ardral, and grandson, repaired to Cha-teauvieux. On the 3d instant M, Royer Collard received the last sacrament, and on the following day he died, with great calmness and resit-nation, having retained the full use of his faculties until the lost moment;, as an orator, he was rather logical than impassioned. Calm, deliberate, and clear his oratory addressed rather to the head than to the heart he sought more to convince than to arouse. He might almost be considered an incarnation of pure and passionless mind. The Constitutional publishes the following extraot of a letter relative to the retirement of the veteran Marshal. The event is extremely likely- He is now in his 76th year, his health has been in"a declining state for sometime, and the obstinsicy of Marshal Bugeaud, in persevering in his own views of policy with regard to Algeria, has tended not a little to make him sick of office: "A letter from Castres informs us that the Marquis de Mornay has just arrived at Soultberg. If we believe reports which have obtained much credence M. de Mornay, who was attending the Council-General at Beauvais, has left that town in great haste on receiving a pressing invitation from the Minister of War. The old Marshal, who states himself to be greatly tired of the struggles and difficulties he has to stand, especially in Algeria, and who is moreover tormented by a chronic catarrh, a;?ain talks of retiring ; but as to retire at his age is to renounce aff.iirs for over, he will not, he says, come to such a determination without consulting his family. We shall soon know whether there be anything' serious in this, or whether it be but the comedy that is played every year." Some importance is attached by the Journal des Debats to the manner in which the feast of St. Louis was celebrated at Rome on the 25'h of last month. That journal, from the subjoined rematks, contained in a letier from Rome of the 26th ult, infers that there is a perfect understanding between his Holiness and Louis Philippe with regard to the Jesuits : " At five o'clock in the afternoon the Pope arrived at the Church of St. Louis. Our Minister Elenipotentiary, M. Rossi, agreeably to the established custom, stepped forward to open the door of the carriage of his Holiness, and thanked him for the honour he deigned to confer on our national church. The holy father paused an instant, and in a loud and sonorous voice, so as to be heard by the crowd which pressed around, said that it was with the greatest pleasure he accomplished that pious duty, and that he would feel most happy that the expression of his sentu ments should be conveyed-to the King of the French. After saying a prayer at the altar of St, Louis, the Pope proceeded to the sacristy, leaning on the arm of the Minister of France, and conversing with him in the most affable manner. The kissing of the Pope's feet, and the presentation of the French residents in Rome, took place shortly afterwards. This solemnity, in which his Holiness manifested in so visible a manner his affection and devotion to France, produced a lively sensation at Rome, where it was regarded as a signal approbation and sanction of the measures adopted with regard to the Jesuits of France. It was nlso remarked, that at no former period had the Sacred College attended in such numbers at this exclusively French feast. There were bo less than eighteen cardinals present. Mr. Rossi repaired, on the 2b'th, to the palace of the Vatican, to thank the Pope for his visit to our church, and his Holiness renewed to him the. expression of his sentiments towards the King and the Royal Family of France." Balmaseda, who distinguished himself as a general in the service of Don Carlos, died some days since at Chagny, in Burgundy. Accounts from Bayonne announce the arrival of the French Princes in the Spanish territory on the 3d inst. After visiting Biarritz and St. Jean de Lux, they reached the bridge which unites France with Spain, which they crossed on foot, ac- companied by Count Bresson, the Prefect of that Department, &c, and on reaohing the other side they were reoeived by the Duke de San Carlos, at the head of the troops, with due honours. They were to arrive at Pampeluna on the 4th. "The duty on cards," says the Steele, "has for some years past prodigiously increased, which circumstance the growing passion for play accounts for. The duty which, in 1830, yielded but 500,000 francs, now yields 1,500,000. To mention but one instance a Paris card-maker, M. Renault, now pays 50,000 francs to the state, instead of 15,000, which he formerly paid. SPAIN. We' have accounts from Madrid to the first instant, but they are destitute of interest. The stock-brokers still held out and refused to transact any business on the Bourse. " Today," says the Heraldo, " the Bourse has presented the same aspect as for some days past. It has been opened, but not the slightest business has been done in any sort of securities." Fbontieks of Turkey, Auc. 14. The whole poshalik of Bagdad is in alarm. Redschid Pacha, the governor of that province, a fanatic Turk, well known for having taken by storm the holy city of Kerbela, has expelled Acbnied Pacha, the hereditary governor of Sulimanie, from his post, after a desperate action, he having caused a messenger to have hi3 head cut off, whom Redschid had sent to summon him to appear in person before the governor. Redschid indeed appointed a brother of Aclimed in his room, but in vain. Arabia is likewise in a complete state of rebellion. The sate of Albania and Bosnia is not much better. The orders of the Porte are scarcely attended to in these pro-vinces, and the new system of recruiting cannot be carried into effect. Silesian Gazette. Cologne, Sept. 2 A supposed intention is talked of which, if it should be carried into effect, will create an extraordinary sensation. It is well known that the Queen of England, when she was here, gave 3,500 dollars for our cathedral. A very different sum was expected from the Queen of three kingdoms ; but apart from this, as the Queen does not seem in general to have any particular taBte for the grand in art, the matter is now taken up in a very different point of view, and a society has been formed here to return the gift of her Britannic Maieiiy. It is said that oonsiderahle contributions have been subscribed for this purpose, and chiefly by manufacturers, for the people's eyes are opened, ana notwithstanding all the hne phrases of the freedom of trade, they see that England, like a vast night mare, keeps down all our manufacturing and commercial efforts. This is the ground of a demonstration which otherwise might appear ridiculousnay, childish. Bremen Gazette, The Russian Navv. The Cologne Gazette contains an artiole declaring that Russia is busy summer and winter in her dock yards at St. Petersburg, and that she has lately introduced Paixhan's mortars into her navy. She possesses in the Baltic at present one ship of 120 guns, three of 1 10, fifteen of 84, twelve of 74, thirty of 64 to 44, and one hundred and twenty of less power, amongst which are steamers armed for war. In the Black Sea she has two ships of 120 guns, two of 110, twelve of 84, eight of 74, eight of 60, ten of 44 ; and one hundred smaller vessels in the Caspian and White Seas, THE WEST INDIA MAIL. The following are extaacts from the papers brought by the last West India mail : (From the Jamaica Dispatch, August 8.) Our accounts from the agricultural districts continue satisfactory, so far as the production of the soil is concerned ; but we have deep and loud complaints of the total cessation of labour throughout the oountry, inconsequence of the absurd custom which haB become so universally prevalent among the labouring population, of devoting three weeks of indolence to the anniversary of freedom. Scarcely a negro can be found to give any labour between the 1st and 20th August, and this is a very serious and a very ruinous affair in those parishes in which the present year's crop has been retarded by the extreme dampness of the earlier portion of the sugar crop. There is, of course, no part of the world but those islands in which thB labouring population could afford thus to throw away three weeks of wages ; but they are here so totally independent of work for maintenance, that the proprietor is purely at their mercy. Notwithstanding our disadvantageSj however, in point of labour, and thanks to a most propitious season, our crop for the present year will considerably exceed the average crops of late years, and that for next year bids fair to exceed even that of the present. The proceedings of the late criminal court of this county have lately terminated, and two wretched criminals await the execution of the last sentence of the law. To one of these, we believe and trust, the merciful consideration, of the crown will be extended ; the other, we fear, for the sake of society, can hope for no mercy on this side ot the grave. The state of the calendar at these assizes was such as to call for the serious observations of the presiding judge, who felt it difficult to account for the great increase both in the quantity and the quality of crimes now submitted to the consideration of the criminal courts of the island. Late accounts from Peru speak of the differences between the government and the Peruvian republic as having been amicably adjusted, by a reparation on the part of Peru for the insult offered to Great Britain, which had nearly led to a rupture. Her Majesty's ship Collingwood had arrived at Callao, and we learn that a grand entertainment had been given on board, at which the President of the Republic was present Cordova's Mercantile Intelligencer.)

HAITI. Port-au-Prince papers to the 3d instant were received in this city yesterday. They speak of an engagement having taken place at Cachiman between the insurgents, numbering 1500 men, and two detachments of government troops, numbering in the whole onlv 600 men. The attack lasted. according to the account of the- Moniteur Haitien four hours, and ended in the total ront of 'the .insurgent body, who made good their retreat under cover ofo cannonade from Cachiman, saving with difficulty their wounded, and leaving a considerable number of dead bodies on the field of battle. The government troops on their part .suffered a loss of four killed and twenty-six wounded. The posts of Cachiman and Resolul were then attacked by tha regular troops, and a brisk cannonade was opened from the former upon the advanced posts, whilst the latter fired on the column of General Victor. The fire, however, was so well returned from the government troops that the two batteries were speedily evacuated; and fell into the hands of the government. - Santa Anna, when last heard of, was living as a private individual at Havanna, having, as it is stated, ample means of support ot his command. No one will be inclined to gainsay this who is awarBof the avaricious actB of which he was generally accused while in power. General FloreB, the late President of the Equador, had quitted his oountry, in order not to plunge it in a civil war, and retains his rank and fortune. He is to travel in Europe during the next two years, and receives warmoommendation as a man of gentlemanly and agreeable manners. We should think the bondholders would do well to enlist the general in their oause, for they sreatlv need assistance.

MSI iBEB TIE 80TH W Mil, 1844 ! THE MINISTERIAL PRESS THE tiORPORATION. The Morning Herald, the recognised English organ of the minister, has taken up. and re-echoed with unwonted vigour the unfounded' charges made against the Dunlin Corporation. The Mail and Packet laboured each according to his fashion to support the accusation made, but not haying space to devote to the figure juggle with which it was sought to sustain it in the council, they prudently avoided facts, and contented themselves with abuse, giving coarse and vulgar but accurately expressive paraphrases of the language used by the gentleman who undertook to lay the indictment. The language of the Mail and Packet was indeed repudiated in the council by the gentleman who arr'anged the plan of assault, but a writer in the latter journal thus maintains the accuracy of the language used to define the charge made against the corporation : ., Reynolds accuses his opponents with suppressions in the estimates, through which a deficit is exhibited Jn the ways and means of the corporation that oan only be aupplied by the imposition of a borough rate'; ana yet he speaks of the men who have committed the imputed fraud'ih this strain: " I found fault with the mode of making out the accounts " with the view to the levying a borough rate, but I do not " impute to the men that made them out any intention of "deceiving the public. They take one view of the mode "of making them out and I take another, and T believe I "am critically correct." Fudge! Those who prepared and adopted the financial report are men of husinew fa. miliar with the adjustment of accounts ; their commercial occupations give them an aptitude in such, matters '; and although one or livo members of the committee might err, the whole body of the council (of whioh the' Committee 'consisted) could not take the erroneous view, imputed in a simple matter of aooount, and their adoption, therefore, of the report denounoed by Mr. Reynolds, involves them irre-trievably in the wilful fabrication alleged, it at Ml ootb aitted. Thi3 is the plain common sense view of the case ; the corporation is either guilty of loilftd fabrication, or the accusation is totally unfounded. We believe that all who have been at the pains to investigate the subject are satisfied perfectly satisfied that for the charges made there was not ashadow of foundation ; but, unfortunately, one of the artifices used against the corporation was so to mystify and involve the subject by discursive declamation, that it required no ordinary assiduity to unfold the webb so ingeniously wound around the facts. The ministerial organs have taken advantage of this circumstance j and assuming that but few, if any, of their readers would take the trouble to inquire for themselves, reissue all the calumnies uttered against the reformed body. The Herald that reached us yesterday thus lauds the exertions of Mr. Reynolds. Having alluded to the fact, that the new corporation has neither " endowed noble charities," nor made " munificent contributions to the wants of the general government," it proceeds : This would seem inexplicable if a member of the corporation, Mr. John Reynolds, had not let the public into the secret that the corporation has been pauperised by the tnisappli cation of its money to some considerable extent, and that the pretence of wanting a borough rate is altogether fraudulent, resting upon garbled accounts, in which large sources of income have been suppressed sources of income amounting to many thousands of pounds. The sub-jectihas been debated with uncommon animation in the Dublin Town Council during thirteen or fourteen days, and we ere bound to declare that in our opinion Mr. Reynolds has established a complete prima facie case of fraud and suppression of the truth, with a purpose of peculation, against the Town Council. The language held by the Herald is as plain as that used by the Packet " fraud," "suppression of truth," " garbled accounts," and " misapplication of money." Yet, plain though it be, it does not misrepresent the accusations of Mr. Reynolds. Is it true, then, that Mr. Reynold's has established a prima facie case of " fraud" and " suppression of truth" for the purpose of " peculation ?" Is it true that the Corporation of Dublin has been " pauperised" by the " misapplication of its money ?" Is it true that that gentleman has " let the public into a secret," exposed the presentation of " garbled accounts," and the suppression of " large sources of income?" The ministerial organs assert that he has. Let us see if there be even a semblance of truth in the assertion. It is now nearly three weeks since we placed before the public in extenso the impugned accounts. We did so because of the vagueness of the charges made against the Repeal corporation by the hostile jour-nals ; we then challenged them with the whole account before them to show that there was either "suppression," "fraud," or " omission," but though these journalists returned again and again to their accusations they never once so much as alluded to the ac counts. If there was this " fraud" if there was this " suppression," why not demonstrate it by reference to that which alone could substantiate the charge if true the account ? We now again challenge the Herald, and Mail, and Packet we challenge them to take up the account upon the presentation of which this charge of suppression of truth was made, and by reference to items to demonstrate that it is either " fraudulent" or " garbled." Mr. Reynolds' speech is in their hands the report of the committee is in their hands the account upon which that report was based is in their hands. Let them cease then from bandying abuse, and let them prove against the Repeal body any one of the charges they have made, by doing so. By proving one ciime they would advance their ends far more effectively than were ih. y to bluster and abuse for a month. The Herald makes a boast that the decision arrived at by the council was not unanimous, and argues thence that Mr. Reynolds did not stand alone in his accusations. How many of these who voted for the amendment put by Mr.Loughnan agreed with Mr. Reynolds in the opinions he put forward in his opening speech, we have no means of judging, The amendment, however, for which they voted did not, in the opinion of many of those who supported it, impugn either the honesty" of the accounts or the. integrity of the men who presented ihem it in effect amounted to a postponement, as was argued by its supporters, and it was not supported as implying an imputation against the correctness of the accounts. We know that one of the gentlemen who voted for the amendment Mr. Pearson speaking of the ac counts, said " If I really considered that the adop-tion of this report would not put on a borough rate, I could not find fault with a single item of it." Another gentleman Mr. Fortune high-spirited and independent in his conduct throughout the entire debate, voted for the amendment, but on its being lost, voted for the adoption of the report, and said, in explanation " Though I might have wished to refer it back to the committee, I have no notion of impeaching that which I believe to be correct, by voting against it," How many others of those who voted in the minority voted on the same principle that influenced the two gentlemen named above we do not know, for some of them had not an opportunity of stating their views ; but we do know that of those who spoke in favour of the amendment, two of the most respectable members of the Conservative party dissented in toto from the vile accusations now re-uttered by the Herald. One of these gentlemen Alderman Kinahan stated with a distinctness not to be misunderstood, that the report " did not go far enough, but his ob jection was not as regarded the figures." The other Counseller Bowles thus gave his opi nion on the question " If the report were referred back to the committee) he thought they would just arrive at the same decision as the original committee, but notwithstanding that, he suggested that such re consideration should be had for the purpose of giving satisfaction to the public, whose minds were excited on the subject. We have done enough to show that among those who supported the amendment there were many (and from among them we have selected two of the most . respectable of the Conservative party, and two of the Liberal party) who did not impugn one item in the account, and who felt that their support of Mr. Lough-nan's amendment did not involve concurrence in the charges made by Mr. Reynolds. The amendment for reconsidering the report found, 'tis true, some supporters ; even the rejection of the report was voted for by other., than Mr. Reynolds ; but among those who so voted was one of the four gentlemen who could " not firid fault with one single item of the account." How many others there were we will not pretend to say. One fact, however, is clear .Mr. Reynolds concluded his opening statement by impugning the accuracy of the account he im pugned items in the aggregate amounting to over 13,0001. ; but he did not venture to follow it up by a motion embodying his accusation. The object of these journalists in thus propagating the calumnies uttered again3t 'our only popular iristi-tution is distinct enough. - The municipalities of Ire-' land have recently passed from within the grasp of the " English interest" the people of the land now possess them, and their enemies, seeing that they are prepared to turn them to the piirpbses for which they were originally designed the maintainance and extension of popular and of national liberty) will, no doubt, use every means to destroy or lessep their influence. The first onslaught has been made, but it was repelled with vigour and effect. Some tempo, rary impression was, no doubt, made at the onset; but examination, discussion, and reflection, will quickly set all to rights. It is easy to make accusationsthey are often heard where the defence does not reach, but if these accusations be not based on truth, they will one day recoil on the accuser. THE TIMES "COMMISSIONER." Our pages to-day contain a further letter of the Times Commissioner, written from a most neglected part of that most neglected county Donegal. The Commissioner eontinueshtsdisquisitions respecting the reclamation of land on which he discourses as didactically as if he had spent a considerable portion of his life in the pursuils of agriculture. The Commissioner does not seem to have recently discovered anything either new or startling at least, if ha has he was not permitted it to appear in his latter communications. He feels himself compelled in his present letter to condemn the absentee landlords whose money is spent out of the country," and to depict the miseries which flow from that fruitful source of social and po-lilical evil to this country. Perhaps it waB fortunate that the Commissioner should have fallen upon the tenantry of the Marquis of Conyngham, inasmuch as that nobleman being a permanent absentee, his case presents an unexceptionable instance of the ope. ration of this gigantic evil ; and as the noble lord is in politics a Whig, the Commissioner was probably the less apt to subdue the colours of the picture which the impoverished principality of Lord Conyngham presents; The Commissioner has spoken of the remedies to be applied to the social condition of Ireland, and has pledged himself that he will make known those on which he would rely. We shall be curious to learn in what consists the remedy he would apply to the disease superinduced by absenteeism of the symptoms of which he presents us with so unfavourable a diagnosis. . LORD WINCHELSEA'S RESIGNATION. The Lord Chancellor not Lord Sugden, but Lord Lyndburst has, after the lapse of several days, replied to ' Lord Winchelsea's letter resigning his commission of the peace. Wo have seldom seen an instance of the laconic in language, convey so much of sneering in sentiment. The Chancellor enunciates, civilly to be Sure, but as clearly as words can convey it, that it is of very little import to the nation that Lord "Winchelsea should cease to be a magistrate, and broadly though courteously, intimateB that his lordship thinks the noble earl is a fool. Here is the letter of Lord Lyndburst : " Turville. SeDtembo.. 4. "My bear Lord I have directed a supersedeas to be prepared agreeably to your wish. I very very mueh regret luui-ii miaaiep. j. nave lorwaraed your letter to Sir R. Peel. "1 remain, my dear lord, very faithfully yours, " Lyndhubst," The Mail, whose joy is extravagant at this act of Lord Winchelsea, evidently spoke with knowledge when it dared Sir Robert Peel to dismiss the Orange Peers of the North, and announced that ha would not venture on such a step. That journal continues, in its publication of yesterday, its taunts against the minister, ami referring to the opinions ex-pressed by the press respecting the truckling of Peel ourselves among the number it concludes thus: " The Freeman's Journal of yesterday Bang to the same tune, hepinp; to spur tl,e sides of the ministerial intent into something like the vigour and consistency of despoiling the magisterial bench of its Protestant members. Speaking of Cord Rotlen's presiding over the Belfast demonstration, our cotempr',rary observed (hut " ' The sentiments of the noble lord render it indispensable that the government should act, or submit to the disgrace and degradation of having been brow-beaten by two or three of the ascendancy peers of Ireland.' " Our morning cotemporarv was not then.however, aware of the Ensl'sh contingent then crossing the channel in aid of (he Irish arisiocracy. Not so the Globe, of Monday, which, commenting on the adhesion of the Earl of Winchel' sea to the Protestant cause in Ireland, thus sets forth the pi iable dilemma in which the minister has placed him-self : ' ' Truly, the government is in a cleft-stick. Peel will wriggle, and twist, and strive to escape from this new 'difficulty.' But thre is no alternative. He has laid down the rule has acted upon it with rigour, with reference to one parlyand must apply it with equal eye and hand to the other. Partiality will only draw down upon him the scorn and contempt of those whom he is disposed to favour ; while the renewed and acc-.lerated agitation of the Repealers, whom he will have treated with a severity unjustifiable even on his own principles, will add to the embarrassment with which he has managed to surround his Irish administration.' " Union is strength. The English aristocracy found the necessity of uniting with their brethren in Ireland, and are beginning to do so Will Sir Robert Peel venture to drive both to extremities? His seat in the councils of Her Majesty depends upon submission to ' circumstances over which, fortunately, he hus no controul.' We shall hear no no more of dismissing LordRoden, or deposing the Marquis We should not be at all surprised to find that this prediction of the Mail shall be fulfilled, and that we shall hear no more of dismissals when peers of parliament are recalis-trant. But in this case never surely did a minister commence and act upon a course more unconstitutional and " tyrannical," and abandon it more shamefully. TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have received the letter of Mr. William G. T, Pur-ceil, addressed to the Rev. T. D. Gregg, but it is in every way unsuited to our columns. DWARKANAUTH AT DARRYNANE. Dwarkanauth Tagore, the distinguished and princely East Hidian merchant, with his secretary Captain Henderson, Sir James Murray, Mr. Brown, and Mr. Jones (the celebrated sou'ptir) arrived at the romantic and hospitable seat of the Liberator at five o'clock on Saturday afternoon. They wsre there met by a numerous company 'at dinner. After breakfast, and attending divine service on the following morning, the party started at half-past ten o'clock for Mr. Herbert's, Mucrus, where they were to dine the same evening. THE O'CONNELLi TRIBUTE. The Rev. Mr. M'Menamin, P.P., Lettermacward, has forwarded to the O'Connell tribute 101., including 1., his own subscription, 11. the subscription of his curate, the Rev. Mr. Boyle, and 5s., the subscription of Mr. James Sweeney. PUBLICATIONS RECEIVED. We have received since our last publication the following periodicals. They shall be noticed in due course : Simmonds' Colonial Magazine tor Septembeb. The Aerostatic Magazine, do. The Traveller's, do. Douglas Jehbold's, do. Ainsworth's, do. The Connoisseur. No 6. The Gallery or Nature. Memoirs ot an Umbrella. LATER FROM MEXICO. The West India mail which reached Southampton on Monday last brings some items of additional intelligence from Mexico, accompanied with the urgent remonstrances of: Mexican correspondents of the London press, againit the non-interference of England in the exterior affairs of -that republic. From these communications and other sources we glean the following summary of events. The interior state of Mexico is such as would seem to in capacitate the general government from following up their official intimation of a war with the United States. Tobasoo, one of the departments, is in open revolt, and all intercourse between it and the capital has been suspended. California has long been disaffected, but the 2,000 men enlisted for service in that state cannot be brought into the field! for want of money to equip and pay them. Thej department of Zacetaches petitioned the Mexican Congress for a restitution of its federal government, the refusal of a petition similar to which caused the revolt of Tobasco. Centralization is working most deleterioualy in Mexico, and to add to the confusion in the capital a presidential election was soon to have taken place,-for which thiee candidates had been already put forward. Herrera the " Interim president" will probably be ohosen ; the others are Gomez Farias (Federalist), and Almonte, late minister to the United States, and a friend to Santa Anna. Until this election shall have been decided, we can hardly expect that any decisive course as respects the United States will be taken by Mexico. In the mean time1 the Mexican Congress are empowered to negotiate a loan of 15,000,000 dollars, giving as security "all the funds of the nation not mortgaged to other creditors. " As an earnest of their bellicose intentions, we are told that 10,000 men, under the command of Felisola, are moving to oross the Eio Bravo, with the intention of taking up a position ten leagues in advance of that river. The most important part of this mail's intelligence at least, so far as English interests are concerned is the now authenticated fact of the AmericancoloDization of California. The Times correspondent complains that America has "already 1,300 settlers on the banks of the river Sacramento," " where they are levying titles from the hungry governors, in a district where only forty British subjects we to be found." He further adds: "In writing thus I represent the opinion of all the British community in this quarter, and I do believe that an anti- United States demon- ttration in California would be most popular not only at home, but in Mexico. The river Sacramento ruos through Upper California and falls into the Bay of San Francisco, which forms the best harbour by a thousand degrees to ba found on the Pacific Coast of America. From this har-bouri which the Yankees are thus surrounding with their settlements, the voyage to India and China can be made more rapidly by a full month, than any possible expedition to be hoped for, could accomplish it, between Europe and the same countries. California, thus combining the attraction of the best existing harbour in America for Asiatic commerce, ana Deiug (a sort of half way stage to the Mexican mines, will not long continue unappropriated. The next mail from the United States will probably bring us still farther proofs of the progress of the United States pohoy in that quarter. If so, we may seriously look for " an anti- Unite States demonstration." DISEASE IN THE POTATO We refer to another part of our impression for details concerning this fearful visitation. We regret to have to state that we have had communications from mora than one well-informed correspondent announcing the fact of the appearance of what is called " cholera" in potatoes in Ireland especially in the north. In one instance the party had been uigging potatoes the hnest he bad ever seen from a par. ticular field, and a particular ridge of that field, up to Mon, day last. On digging in the same ridge on Tuesday, he found the tubers all blasted, and unfit for the use of man or beast. We are most anxious to receive information as to the state of the potato crop in all parts, for the Durnofi either of allaying unnecessary alarm, or giving ti-nelv warning. All through Fmgal serious damage has been already sustained. George Cruikshank's Table Book. Part VIII. By Herbert Kodwell. NEVER GIVE UP! " In ne cede malis sed contra audentior ito." I " Never give up"'Tis the secret of pb ry, Nothing so wise can philosophy preach; Think on the names that are famous in story, " Never give up" is the lesson they teach. How have men compass'd immortal achievements? How have they moulded the world to their will ? 'Tis that midBt dangers, and woes, and bereavements, " Never give up" was their principle still. II " Never give up" though o'erladen with sorrow, Shake not the yoke 'twill more bitterly gall; Never give up, for there cometh a morrow Fraught with delights to compensate for all. Never give up bear your fate with serenity ! Crouch not ignobly like slaves in the dust ; Life's a rough passage to realms of amenitv ; Dark is the journey but travel we must. Ill " Never give up." It can last but a season ; Will you because a cloud bursts on jour way Basely surrender your manhood and reason, Weeping for griefa that must end in a day ? What, though the tempest around you be raving ? Soon you'll have emptied life's rancorous cup. Soundly you'll sleep where the willows are waving, Thunder won't waken you Never give up. IV. " Never give up !"It were impious to dream of it, Keen though your anguish be, never;forget That there are fortunes (O, raptures to ideem of it) Bright and immortal in store for you vet Ere the nightfall if by virtue a meriter, May you not, mourner, in Paradise sup, Compeer of angels and Heaven's inheritor?

The house was well attended, and the entertainments paned off with eclat. r " THE MUSIC HALL. Mr. Mackintosh, the enterprising lessee of the nation Music Hall, is likely to reap a rich harvest. Last evening this delightful place of amusement was fully and fashionably attended, and the exertions of those exnuisite singers, tha Misses Smith, aided as they effectivelv were by Mr. Ferrand, gave unequivocal satisfaction and elicited repeated demonstrations of applause. The 'pro gramme was judiciously selected, being interspersed with terzettos, duets, and ballads, by the most eminent composers and some of our own sweetly expressive songs graced ths melodious collection. Miss Julia Smith did ample justice to ' AUeen Mavourneen." She entered with pathos and tenderness into the sentiment of the ballad, and charmed the assemblage by the simplicity of her execution. " I would not, if I could, forget," one of those graceful little gems which awaken emotions of the tenderest interest, proved very attractive. The conductor, Mr. F. Smith, accompa-med the children of song" on the pianoforte. His performance was characterised by a brilliancy and delicac, of execution which we have seldom heard surpassed.
