The eagerness of our generous citizens,

The death ,of Mrs. I',.II(EBE Aux RUSH,
which we announced in Tue Pass,' of Satur
day,,wih be sad tidings to hundreds in this, as
well as-in foreign countries. She was, in
many respects, a highly-distinguished person
age. She has for years past sustained a 'rela
tion to society, in this community,, whieb;
while it aroused against her some ridiculous
jealousies, and probably awakened a spirit of
envious and expensive rivalry in fashionable
circles, enabled her to do homage,to many of
the most- gifted intellects of the times;
men,ln' all stations :of' life, who, 'unable, td
penetrate the , charmed centres of wealth,
found in ber saloons a ready and a cordial
welcome. Living in a style of almost 'regal
grandeur, haidnginherited the one-third of her
father'i "estates, her portion estiinated at,at
least a million of dollars,' she seemed to be
ambitlotta of taking by the band, and :intro
ducing to the fashionable world, every poor
but gifted , individual, , whether an artist,
a mechanic, or a statesman. Herself highly
accomplished, a thoroughly -educated woman,
a severe student, proficient in the modern
languages, possessed of great colloquial
powers, she became the head of the influence
she helped to build up, and swayed the
sceptre almost like a monarch. She was com
pelled, of course, to receive and return the
- visits of many who were nothing to her ex
cept for their Station in society ;• but she de
serves remembrance, and always won respect
from unprejudiced men, by her liberal cu
t euragement of genius and talent, and by her
lofty scorn of the little cliques that so often
disfigure the world of fashion.' The Sunday

venal phrase of bribed hirelings, who desire only
to lull us into that deathlike repose which is en
gendered by idlenoss.

ends arS ettnined.
Wehave worked—we have mitered—for what?
now are miserable. .We have amassed wealth,
and our very solf-dep!ivationsare literally gone to
the devil. It is ordained that if wo help ourselves,
Clod will help mt. Wo eon help ourselves. We

Como all! Let us remember that it wee oven
the work of a Legislature of our own making that
we endure the pangs of a bitter death.
Let us' not—not speak. Let us strike while we
can, or die tightieg manfully.
The extravagant language of this invocation
tol arms recalls the hattlecries' of the French
metropolis. Such' an invocation will, we
knOw, prodoeit 'no approving response in Phil.
adOphia;not even from the Germans. There
is no cause for,such wild declamation. What
evilr the sufferings ,of the working masses
may become, there are none, as yet, not within
the reach of ordinary individual remedies;
and If ever their sufferings should demand
wider action and more extended relief, no such
organized violence as that hinted at in this Ger
man call will be effective. Our native popula
tion would at once epos° any such lawless
ness, and the great body of the Germans them
selves would co=operate with them. In
deed, we have good authority for declaring
thdt this attempt to let loose the elements of
anarchy among us is nowhere more strongly
reraidlated than by the influential organ of the
Germans themselves— the Daily Democrat.
But even this movement, uncalled for as it
is, may produce some good results. It may
forewarn and forearm us. It may suggest pro
cautionary measures against the severity of the
winter. It may gine direction and discipline to
a great find; not for charity, but for work. It
may call forth our good men in defence of the
threatened order and imperilled good name of
under this head we find in the Richmond
Examiner; of the 28d, a long and able article,
of ivhlch the following extract will be inter
esting :
It follows, if we are right in those conjectures,
that before the financial troubles of the country
wilt have,consed, we shall have to procure from
abroad specie as follows : for

This is the amount of specie we shall have to
acquire, in addition to what will be necessary to be
got,-to corepensate for the amounts which the pres
sure will cause to be withdrawn from circulation
and hoarded. Eleven millions would be a small
estimate for this item ; and thus it seems to In that'
wellhell not be relieved of the present troubles
that now overwhelm the business of the country,

UAiuUSBVBU, Oct. 24,1857
L'OTOR Or PRE9B : I send you the odcial
returns of the late olectioci in Pennsylvania,
filed in the State Department. They will bo in
terejsting to the future historian who may wish to
asce`rtain how badly the opposition to the De
moclAcy were whipped aftor the people bad a trial
of the Administration James Buchanan for one
year. They show the official result in every county
fur Dupreme Judges—every ono, except McKean,
for Canal Commissioner, and in sixty-four out of
aixty.five countios for Governor. In those Win.
F. Packer (Democrat) has a majority of 41,823
over David Wilmot, (American Republican,)' and
13,846 majority over the combined opposition vote
of ilasichurst (straight-out American) and Wil
mot„The county yet to hear from, for Governor,
is Tioga, which will reduce Packer's majority
about 2,000, leaving him ahead of IVilmot in the
neighborhood of 30,823 votes. The amendments
to the Constitution are all carried by more than
two to one.
[The returns alluded to will be found in another
From the Auditor-General I learn the cost of
publishing those amendments in 1856, was $16,053,
and this year about $30,000. making a total of
$10,653. The length of the advertisement was the
same this year as last. The difference is caused
by certain publishers increasing their charge, hav
ing discovered that others received nearly double
what they did In 1856; and its being inserted in
an additional number of papers. The feet tethers
aro scarcely any two papers, whether weekly or
daily, that charge the same amount—hence, the
Auditor-General has had muoh diffioulty in fixing
the sum they are entitled to, This could easily be
remedied if, with every order for publishing ad vor
tiretnents from the State Government, there should
he the provision that it be done for so much per
square, making (say) 300 ems a square. This
would prevent the dishonest from getting too much,
and allow the upright their just dues.

over-present Assistant Clerk of the Muse, that a

Boquets showered down abundantly on Luerezia,

Mere is no truth, we understand, that pretty

Mal proposals, within a week after her Mut : the
exact number way, three and a half, which the little
Castilian destined, owing to the present doubts as
to the solvency of the parties interested.l The
troupe have proceeded to have a short Beason in
New York, after which, still under the magic baton
of Max Maretzek, they proceed to navana, where,
already, the Cubans have actually engaged every

will be easier than they have lately been. The

In New York, the failure has been complete,,be

Charles Mathews, emphatically the very best of
English light comedians, appears at the Academy
thia evening in two drab:las—a now comedy called
" Married for Money,'t and that surprising inter-
ludo, "Pattei Clattei.", Nearly twenty years
ago, Charles Mathews (and his wife, Madame Ves
tris) visited this country, but scarcely continued
long enough to give ue " a touch of his quality."
Owing to a mistake and a misrepresentation, be
quitted Now York, almost ere his voice had been
heard on the stage of the Park Theatre. lie has

successful at Boston. His stay here will be brief,
but we anticipate crowded houses to see and boar
At tho Arch street thoatre, "Jack Cado" has
had a very successful run for over a fortnight.
Several causes have led to this success, among
which we may name the popularity'of the play,
from Mr. Forrest's noting, the desire to see how
Mr. Davenport would play the leading character;
the extra excitement caused by the proceedings
in a court of equity (Forrest vs. Wheatley and
Fredericks,) as to invasion of the copyright, and,
it must bo added, the able and artistic perfor
mance of Mr. Davenport. As oven a great success
gets wearisome, .Mr. Wheatley has put " Jack
Cade" by, for the present. This evening be pro

at this theatre. The cast includes himself as Mac
de, Mrs. Bowers as Lath/ Madvih, Mr. Daven
port as Macbeth, with Mr. James Dunn as Hecate,
and Miss Cruise as the First Singing 'Mich. It
14 worth mentioning, as a fact, that, at most
theatres, on a tom run, that is taking the average
fsovoral seasons, "Macbeth" draws larger houses
than any other play. But it is not so profitable as
many dramas which do not draw so well—because
such considerable expense is involved in tho getting
it up, as, wo have no doubt, from his proverbial
liberality in snob matters, it will be pat upon the
stage by Mr. Wheatley. There can bo no doubt,
indeed, for Mr. Wheatley appeitrs to make a point
of having every thing—scenery, costume, accuse.
ries---of the most suitablo description. Ito has his
reward In the groat popularity of his theatre. It
is but Justin to draw attention to n circumstance
at once no creditable to the manager nod so well
appreciated by the public.
Mr. Wheatley, with a liberal feeling which does
him honor, but cannot surprise those who know
him, has sot apart next Friday evening as a benefit
eight for the poor of, this city, the proceeds to be
placed at the disposal of a committee for distribu
tion. We have no doubt that tho public will
warmly second this generosity.
At the Walnut Street Theatre Mr. Marshall hoe
fired off n double-barrelled gun. The success of
Mr. and Mrs. Waller ia quite an event in our dra-
made annals. Unpuffed, unheralded, they have
unequivocally made a very &aided hit, and tho
best proof of this in, that their popularity was
culminating.. They opened in " Hamlet"—Mr.

could note was that her voice was sweet, express
ive, natural, and, and even musical, and that her
pavane! attractions were considerable. The next

and the talent of both came out Mrs. Waller was
nue of the least atagey and most natural Julia,
wo ever saw. "The Patrician's Daughter" , wo
were compelled to miss. The groat test, the great
triumph, was " Muebeth." In this great sod

No clue has yet been obtained to the mysto.
rious murder of Adeline Bever, near Mohrsvillo,

lady was again disinterred for the purpose of al
lowing a thorough re-examination to be made. Tho
coroner concluded his duties on Wednesday last,
From the testimony of the physicians, we learn
thist the wound in the nook of the murdered girl
was two inches broad and three quarters of an
inch deep. No other marks of violence wore found
upon her body. Only two•thirds of the throat,
and a smell vole, were out through, so that, in the
opinion of the physicians, it must have taken
two hours to bleed to death from this wound.
This feet bee led to the supposition that she might
have died of suffocation The county commission•

very properly offered a reward of $5OO for the ap•

[Correspondence of The PretS.]
WASIUNOTON, Oot. 25, 1852.
For want of other material, the correspondents
bore for northern papers have again taken up Ni
caraguan affairs, and aro exhibiting them in every
and the most contradictory terms. Tho truth of
the matter is simply this: There Is po permanent
Cove'rnme - nt at this time in that Matti, or rather de:
pendenoy of the Mora family and Costa plea. Mar•
tinez and Jerez, the two puppet presidents created
by General More, have no real power,' and what is
done and undone. and done over again,ie done and'
undone and done over again as this, that, or the
other shrewd Yankee gots the ear and tills the
pockets of the "powers that be." The rumor ar
rives that British subjects are gaining the
position, and instantly agents and ,material
aid, aro hurried to stiffen the backbone of the par
ties, temporary grantors of priviligos, &c , and to
retain what has already boon bargained rind paid
for twice over, though It may not have been in
regular way.
After all, there is a power in the Central Ame•
Ocala States, behind the throne, !granger than the
throne. itself; and I am led to believe, that, just
now, notwithstanding what may bo said an can•
traire, that this power is, not wielded by English
men, but by moneyed capitalists of Now York and
Now Orloans.
General Walker had a chance, some months ago,
to throw himself into Nicaragua, and make head
against the Costa Rican forces, but he very fool
ishly, I think, threw it away. Instead of making his
in eparations quietly, ho visits newspaper offices and
harangues the people at public meetings, and tells
all he has done, and, like the good general
that he is, all that he and his confrere, content.
plain doing. Now, however, the financial criers
which htan swept over the country, bringing disas
ter to every section, has not left him and his en
terprise untouched. They aro high and dry upon
their beam ends, and it will not be this year, I
hardly believe, that a tide of prosperity in Mil
busterdom will swell up to take them off, and float
them toward the accomplishment of their "mani
fest destiny." It is not an intense conviction
even in the South, that Walker stook will run up
presently to more than one hundred per cent.
aboVe par. Even if it wore so in the North and
in the South, it is a pretty good guess to say that
the. name of those who have money to invest in
such , undertakings is not legion. Men of means,.
auw.a.daya, It is Bald, and very truly it may be,
invariably determine their proceedings by the
la r-and-cont argument.
This being admitted, and that argument being
clearly against Walker, the moneyed stet tnship
onnors of Now York and elsewhere will bo left to
plot and intrigue, to got, it may be, Yriasari, or
another amiable native " to the manor born," to
represent, at Washington, the States having vain•
able privileges to grant.
Yrissari has boon testified to in every respect,
in the strongest and amplest manner, yet, strange
to say, he and his bankers and their shames have
not had official recognition hero by any formal
reception' on the part of rite President or Secretary
of State. Nor is it probable that they will. When
Wm. Carey Jones, I:sq., special agent of the State
DoPartineht, returns, and something satisfactory
is learned either from him or another sent out to
look after hint and what ho went for, the deter
mination of the Administration in the matter
may be made known. It is to be hoped
for charity's sake, that this result is not far oft
for, until it is reached, a large number of persons
coneerned will bo kept in Washington, at groat
expense to themselves and their friends, and this
in those hard times is u vital consideration.
The contest fur the public printing begins to
grow warm. The ins are resolved ou not being
owls, if active preparations and steady canvassing
can save them. But it would be amusing if all
the 'labor they have undergone for six months

On Monday the Bank of England raised its rate
of discount from six to seven por cent.; and it is
thought not unlikely that a fresh advance may
take place, and that wo may shortly see the rate
once again at eight per cent: , the highest point it
has over reached duringuiedern experience, and at
which it stood in October, 1847. This high rate is
not expected to he of long duration; but even its
brief continuance will be productive of much in
TB° Times city article says that onjfonday
(Oct.' 12) in the stock exchange there was no ex
traofilinary pressure for money, loans from day to
day being obtainable at about 8 par cent. Tho
great decline in the funds at the opening was
misled by the anticipation of a further speedy
movement of the rate of discount to 8 per cent.
The public, however, did not seem to share the
alarm of the dealers, and the course of business
gradually assumed- comparative steadiness. The
foot that, oven at present quotations, specie re
mittances cannot be made from England to the
United States at ally material profit, supposing
the returns to bo furnished in the highest class of
bills allayed the fears as to the prospect of any
continuous shipments to that country ; while, with
regard to India, it transpired that some of the or
ders for sanding out silver on the 20th instant
may possibly be countermanded, the advance in
the rate of discount hero and other considera
tions rendering the speculation doubtful. The
absence of gold withdrawals from the bank, the
Improvement in the foreign exchanges, and the
arrival of the Red Jacket from Melbourne, with
1:284,000, likewise contributed to the more favora
ble feeling. The movement adopted by the Bank
of France ' so far from having in adverse influence,
operated by lessening the probability of a panic,
whieh could not fail to react on London, being
brought about through mismanagement on that
side. On the other hand, the announcement of
a rather large commercial failuro—Ross,
& Co.— and the apprehension of further similar
events in the manufacturing towns, prevented
any strong reliance that an increase of stringency
in time mousy market can be avoided. The extent
of the applications at the bank, which were again
extrftordinary, also Operated to check the tendency
to recovery, although a large portion of these may
possibly have originated in the desire to provide
against the anticipated further advance. On
the whole, however tho day may be considered
to have passed satisfactorily. On Wednesday
probably IL better opportunity will exist for form
ing a judgment as to the future. The divi
dends then commence, and a large amount of
advances will have to be repaid to the bank.
Tho consol settlement will also take place, and
four days later news from New York will per
haps bo received at Southampton by the Ariel.
Ross, Mitchell, &Co wore engaged in the Ca
nadian trade, and have a bouee in Toronto. Their
liabilities are estimated at about .£250,000, while
their mulcts were recenßy valued at about 1350,-
000. The disaster is attributed to bills having
boon returned upon them against which they hold
securities not immediately available, and hopes are
expressed of the practicability of a resumption.

The Bank of France have raised their rate of
discount to fil per cent. It had stood at 53 per
cent. since the 25th of June, and in the interval
there has boon a failing off of £2,400,000 In their
sleek of bullion, although artificial purchases at a
premium have been continued upon an extensive
wale. The measure seems to have been anticipated
en the Bourse.
At Hamburg the rate of discount has risen to 8
per cent.
A statement just circulated, that the India-house
are in want of more money, and that the bank have
notided to the Government their inability to fur
nish it, is wholly erroneous. The India Company
at this moment would be willing to lend money,
the greater part or the recent credit opened at
the bank being unemployed. For future wants
they still hold a largo reserve of stook and ex
chequer-bills, and there is no reason to doubt
that' the eipectution hold out of their finan
cial position being such as to enable them
to provido for all wants until the meeting
of Parliament will be fully realised, Of mule,
if the local Government were to announce the ne
coesity of a large sum of specie being sent to Cal
matte, an emergency would then bo presented
which would call for special 'action ; but It is be
lieved that no such intimation has yet been re
ceived, and that, in the absence of exceptional
oircumstaneea of this kind ,there will be nothing
to disturb the calculations originally made.

The Daily News thinks the general aspect of
affairs in the London money market more satisfac
tory, than that of Monday. One of the most en
couraging features of the moment is, that although
such high rates of interest prevail, there is no fool

Thr Getman (Republican) Meeting OA Sun
day, at Arfteor or ITrrieery MP. Third street,
het h .ern Pain and eallotehill.—The violent call
translat. a into the Syod,t, Dilpotrh. of yester
d,y, and igi n•dly polo i.shed in the Free Press, a
I;rrinfin licpublic ru prim and not the Democrat,
stated in the Dieelteh. attracted a number of
itorrons. over one thousand, to the above place,
vebterday, at three o'clock, P SI Curiosity
eemed to hive called the most of them to the spot.
After trying to got some one to preside, several
having declined, Mr. Fetter, cabinetmaker, ac
cepted the post of chairman. A long pause en
sued after he hod called for the authors of the
meeting to come forwent and state its object. At
lenodh Mr Mund; a Republican stamper, got '
up and made a high-tariff Know-Nothing speech,
charging our troubles to the lark of a protective
t triff, and saying that there were enough me
chanics and artisans. and, of course, shoemakers,
(,o he was one,) and. therefore, emigration should
cease. He then caned on them to organise, to
combine with American laborers, aid to force the
speculators to he did not say what.
Louis C. Mahlke, twister shoemaker, whose es
tablishment is at 7G North Seventh. above Arch
street, and who seemed to be the testier of the
turn out, nest followed. He was a very active
Republican in 1556, and always opposed to the
Democratic party. He attacked the banks; said
they must be turned to pay; assailed the building
and swings institutions. and declared they were
intended to rob the poor ; complained of Govern
' cent donation of public land. and demanded neve
, rtl millions to be given to the people, otherwise
they should go to Washington. or Harrisburg, and
take their rights, as there are in this country no
bayonets to oppose them, and they had all the
Uviver themselves. He said the Constitution of the
nited States was a mere rag, of no value; they
should rely for their constitution upon the truth in
their hearts. Ile concluded by saying that he
meant what he said.
Another Republican German, a Mr. Myer, fol
lowed, and advised moderation ; he did not like to
see party squabbles brought into this affair. At
this moment hiablke, the freedom-of-speech Re
publican, broke in and said. " that any one who
did not believe that our troubles were the fault of
the Democrats. should not speak, and ought not
to be here," and called him "a traitor;" upon
which there was, of course, confusion worse
confounded; any number of speakers ad
dressing themselves to small clusters of men.
Finally Mahlke made a proposition to ap•
point a committee of twenty-Eve, to report a
aeries of resolutions on Friday at the same place,
which was carried. Then a proposition was
made to publish the proceedings in the German
papers. Objections were raised against publishing
them in the Democrat, which caused another
breeze, voices crying out, "If you don't publish in
the Democrat, don't publish anywhere, as nearly
all the Germans read only the Democrat." Then
they adjourned till Friday.

yesterday afternoon was caused by the partial burn

Mr. Paulsen. As it was, ke fought with the de
termination of a Leonidas, but too much confidence
brought about his7discomfiture. Mr. Oscanyan's
genie. as also that of Mr Frere. were well con
ducted on their part, but their adversary was one
too many for them.
Mr. Paulsen was not in the slightest degree fa
tigued with his exertions, and states that he could
just as well play six orseven games at a time as
five. The members oC the Congress doubt whether
there be ally limit to his powers, and with reason.
