fL."'J.JU.ILlf' THE TIME-AM ELOQI'KXT AITKAL. The following eloquent appeal to the Irish people nppears in the United Irishman of May 27th, after the conviction of Mitchell. It breathes the true spirit of a soul laboring un der a sense of national wrong and oppres sion. From the United Irishman of May 27.) The Time. It is no poetic, raiiibow-hued, Rolden age. No gentle, sweet-noiced sovec eign roles the world. Our only king s the sword. At the flash of the patriot's steel the torch of freedom can alone be lit. " This is not the timo for beggars' petitions. No more prayers ; no more whining; no more dying in tho ditch-side ; no more patient nnd persevering catiabalism; no more soup-kitchen paternity; no more of the grim fatce, in which two millions of men, with red blood in thein, and something resembling a soul, by the graco of the devil and the advice of their pastors, bid larewcll to the sun and and com mitted suicide ; no more of that gentle "law" which, like death, levels nil distinctions, and places a hi-rh-souled patriot in the same lilthy cell with a common burglar and a swindling Jew; no more of the licensed sconndreliam of pompons magistrates which tho other day consigned one of our best friends to a felon's prison, for walking through the streets of Dnb- lin with his friends', no more of that siceursoil mockery culled government," which Ii IrniTinled into sterlitv every coud seed of i ------ truth, nnd honor, and courage, which the just (to J had planted in this land, and left it with out fruit an I verdure. Away, away with all this "specious fry of fraud" with English rule and English robbery. Down to their native hell with aristocratic plunderers and vicere gal creen-eronivr. Their hour is come.

We hardly know in what way to reply to the childish effusions of the Miltonian for some time past, nor in what spirit they have been dictated whether from envy or malice, or a want of proper conception of right from wrong. We did not, of course, consult tho redoubtable editors of the Mil tonian, in regard to the policy we should pursue, nor did we expect to please them in the course we have adopted. I here is however, a common courtesy which often prompts editors to display something of a liberal and honorable spirit, even when their inclination points in a diflerent direc tion. If the editors of the Miltonian choose to quote from our paper, they should not take detached sentences, and draw conclu sions and make comments to suit their ow n fancy. In regard to Gen. Taylor our con' duct has been consistent throughout, and when we once repudiate what we have said in regard to that distinguished patriot, or speak disparagingly ot his character, it will be time for those who have never learn ed to think for themselves, to carp at our conduct. Gen. Taylor occupies a position now, very diflerent from that which he held some months since, when he declared his being a candidate, should not depend upon the result of any convention. The Louisiana delegation, however, in the late whig convention, stated that thev were aulhoris-d to say that Gen. Taylor would abide by its decisions and support the nomi nee of that convention. These views, are entertained by others who supported Gen. Taylor. The Philadelphia Mullet in, speaking of the nomination, says: "We have so frequently spoken of Gen. Taylor, in these columns,' that it would be superogatory to discuss his character now. But, it must be remembered, he presents himself t us now in a different aspect from that he has before assumed. It was not un til a letter from him was read in ihe Conven tion, acknowledging himself a whig ami en gaging not to be a candidate if any other whig received the nomination, that no was able ta obtain a majority of tho del-gates. We have heretofore, spoken of him as an In dependent candidate he is now, by his own admission, a Whig one and, as a ti'lug, he is to be elected or defeated ! (Dr" MiTCHRLL, the editor and publisher of the United Irishmen, has been tried and sentenced to transportation beyond the seas, for fourteen years, for publishing in his pa per, a speech delivered by him, against Untish rule in Ireland. Mitchell is a re publican, and is in favor of a republican government in Ireland. He is a brave and fenrless patriot, who will be long remem bered. II is speech to the court, which will be found in another column, shows with ""'iv ":V"' A invtloA (ho Judges Vve also publish an extract of the speech upon which he was condemned. It is bold, eloquent and patriotic. Sonos foii tiik Pi:oim.i:. The June number of this handsome and popular pub lication has been received. It contains fourteen songs each handsomely illustrated.

NileS on Wednesday last, reported a bill to fix a uniform rate of postage, of three cents for letters, and one cent for newspapers. Let ters to be prepaid, or five cents to be col lected. Mr. Niles was formerly Post Mas ter General. His object is nol to pass the bill at present, but to elicit public opinion on the subject. He should add the aboli tion of the franking priviledge, in Congress, and free postage on papers, under 30 miles. VD" The list of causes in the Supreme Court, for this district, will appear in our next. "A letter from Mazatlan, on the Pacific, representing the coast there as unhealthy, and the uncertainty of vessels to California, has caused that expedition to be abandoned, and many who had enrolled themselves for that country have transferred their names to the ViiCAtan list. Information as to the full object of the expedition, the character ot Ihe country, etc., will be readily imparted by the undersigned, at the Star ctliee. Jno. H. Peoples." A correspondent of the N. Orleans Cres cent writes as follows in relation to the ex pedition to Vuciitaii : In my hint I wrote to you something about an expedition to Yucatan from this quarter. It would now be impossible to convey to you any idea of the enthusiasm existing on the subject, and I verily believe that if the means were at hand, five thousand men, who would arm and equip themselves, could be shipped from Vera Crux in (wo weeks. They are perfectly crazy on the biibject. The ' Star," whose editor is getting ,,p the expedition. gave notice this morning that information relative to tho nature of tho expedition, etc. would be given on application at the publica. tion ollioe, that establishment was crowdd until late in tho evening by otTiceis, soldiers and followers of the army, anxious to enrol their names for the expedition. Two Colo nels and one Major, of the volunteers, are 'bookuu'' already, and General Butler hav ing expwsseil a determination to discharge in this country any man wjto wishes to re maiii to settle, or to join the Mexican army, many of the volunteers have taken advantage of ii, aud several companies, organized and fully equipped, are now ready to be shipped. All that is asked of Yucatan, or the friends of Yucatan, is transportation to Campeachy, and a small stock of provisions. The cost of this would be trifling, aud I trust that Ike friends of that country, in iu present distress.! con. dition, will not suffer this formidable aid. to fall through for the lack of the- few dollar it will be necessary to carry it through.

To such as have, for the last five years. been writing on the subject of cheap postage and the cluor ground of opposition, it is more and more obvious, that there is in Congress a determined conspiracy to defeat, if possible, any system that would elevate the people to a level with their public servants, as to mail privileges, and especially electioneering privi leges. When, four years ago, the demand became loud from all parts of the land, a partial yield ing of franking power, as well as a partial reduction of postage, was granted But when this promised favorably for still further reduction, members became alarmed at the growing idea of equal rights aud privi lcjies, anil; by a very silent "act," again greatly enlarged their franking power virtu ally extending it, with respect to everything in the qhape of Post-otlice burdens, through out the year. Moreover, as if ashamed to have it appear in the regular bill on franking, they inserted in an "Act to establish certain Post-router," (approved March 3d, 1817,) a clause ordain ing, that '-books, procured or purchased, bu or der of either House, shall be entitled to be f i nn Led," by members ! In connection with this law, thus smuggled through, (and which can be silently used for the distribution of unnumbered volumes, to those whom it may be expedient to conciliate with such presents,) it appears the Senate have recently, in a single instance, purchased twrlec thousand copies of "Col. llickej'a' late volume of 540 pages occasioning an expense to tho country of about seventeen lliosnvtud dollars ! Such impositions on nu unsuspecting peo ple are constantly practised burdening the daily mails from Washington with tons of volumes, pamphlets, documents, and even n Senatorial newspaper, printed at tha public expense besides unnumbered large paeka- ges of Circulars and ordinary letters, illr;.'itlly franked and distributed by members for their favorites ! Ktlbrts have been made in vain, by the Post-master (ienernl (o suppress such abuses. The result has been that the Senate, within a few weeks, have passed u. special bill, a dapted to perpetuate and increase this demor alizing practice of franking for others, and by heavy penalties to prevent !W exposure: The truth is, that such abuses, dailv cor rupting and hardening the consciences of members and their friends, wvr can be sup pressed but by the total abolition of nil frank ing power. Ami those who hoKI this power will not yield it up. nor grant rates of postage on letters and newspapers that shall be al most equivalent to it for all, till petitions from every quarter shall show that the demand is becoming universal, as it was in firent Bri tain. There letters are now carri-il for a penny, and newspapers for nothing; and yet so vast has been the increase of mail correspondence, that it brings in, over all expenses, upwards of j?4. 000. 000 annually. Ife are a much more reading and writio;; frank no volumes or letters; and, as lUpuhli hcans, entitled tn eijual privileges with our rulers, we would all rejoice to try the cheap system, even though it mii;ht, for a few years, occasion some tax on the general trea snrv.

Commissioner were still at (iue retaro, when Major Graham left the city of .Mexico, and would probably remain there several days longer. Tho.-trro Ins, of Vera Cruz, is very much incensed on account of the mercy extended to Lieutenant Hare and his accomplices, by Oen. Butler. It says: "This then is a holocaust to the manes of Alcade aud CJacia, who suffered by the. strict application of tho laws of war." The f7ro del Commercio, on the contrary, applauds il as an ac( of clemency, creditable to the feelings of the Commander iu Chief, and expresses itself satisfied with the sense of justice evinced by the Commission iu the conviction of the criminals. The Monitor Ilepublicano of tho 27th ult.. says that I.amartiue had recalled the llarou do Ciprey, French Minister. The same pa per learns from an American officer, that du ring the commencement of the ensuing week Gen. Butler would deliver possession of the city to the Mexican Government. The Zacetecano of Ihe loth of May, asserts most positively, lhat Paredes, has demanded a passport to leave the country; and further adds, that tho nation will be benefitted by his absence. It will be seen by the following card, that Mr. Peoples, the editor of the American Star has abandoned his California expedition, and instead will direct his steps to Yucatan : ''For Yccatan. A number of young men belonging to accompanying the American ar my iu Mexico, have expressed a strong de sire to go to the assistance of the whites in Ybctttau. With nie many have enrolled their names, and the party of four Or five hundred can easily be made up. Those who wish to spend the summer in a delightful country, rather than return home in the dull season, can find no better place in which to do so than in Yucatan ; whilst, at the same time, they can assist the whites against the merci. less Indiana, and benefit tlaemselves immeasurably. .

M. the Clay Whigs let off their steam in the Park last evening, and it is fair to presume that they "breathe freer and deeper." The meeting was respectable in point of numbers, and, as I anticipated, rather obstreperous. Mr N. B. Blunt explained the course of the Whig delegation from this city, in a very dry speech, and the meeting visibly melted away under the influence of his harangue. Horace Greely spoke briefly. Thd sum of his remarks was that he would support Tay lor, if Taylor would promise to carry out Whig principles ; if not, iiof. Dudley Selden followed, and declared that he would not vole for Taylor under any circumstance whatsoever. lie also nominated Mr. Clay, as tho Whig candidate for President, amidst a storm of expletives, in which it is hard to say whether compliments or curses predominated. K Gov. Junes, of Tennessee, said a few words, designed to act as oil upon the troubled wa ters, but declined endorsing the objects of thu meeting. Mr. Fowler, of Otsego, a delegate to the Convention, expressed his attachment to Mr. Clay, but at thu same time avowed his intention to support Old Zack- In a word, the whole thing was a failure, aud the Clay Whigs having fired their funer al volley over the political grave of their standard-bearer, will go over in s iiiiils to the Taylor camp. A few may lie down and die on old Harry's tomb-stone ; but th-; number will be very, very small.

This is certainly a high rale; but when one reflects that this loan is the last which th" United States government will be obliged to make, that the three millions to be paid to .the Mexicans are already provided for. with the loan that all the liabilities of the Trea sury are provided for, and not a dollar of the new loan called for till the 1st of July; when 1 it is considered that the whole debt of th United States, as it now stands, is not yet 50 ner cent, irreater than that of the State of Pennsylvania, then the premium of :' per cent, appears, indeed, 1110 -lerute.
