tfRlMr. BATTLE iS ITALY,
The Cambria brings intelligence of an un
successful outbreak in Ireland, We of course
hare to rely opon- the English version of the
matter, for. -the Irish papers friendly to the
Irish cause have been mostly suppressed.
This will account for the ridicule thrown over
die movement. A collision had taken place,
between the police and the insurgents 5 thd
latter have been worsted and the leaders are
fleeing from arrest." The immense prepara
tions rmulo by the English government seems
to overpowur all idea of effectual resistence.
A continued stream of forces, consisting of
cavalry, infantry and artillery have poured
into Ireland, and an immense fleet of war
steamers encircled the whole coast. The
Felon, Nation and other papers were seized)
the types carried away, and effectual steps
taken to prevent their re-appearance. Nine
counties were further proclaimed under the
Anns Act, including Kerry, Gulway and sev
en baronies in Cork county, Wexford, Queen's
county, Cailow, Kildure, Wieklow, and eight
baronies in King's county ; Westmeath, Louth,
nnd four baronies in Clival) ; Farney, in Mon
aghan ; two baronies in Armagh, and the ba
rony of Newry, in the county of Down.
Meantime numerous arrests have been made
in Dublin and in Various counties. Patrick
O'Higgins, the leader of the Dublin Chartist?,
was the first person sent to Kilrnaiiiham jail
on a charge of high treason.
From the latest advices received from the
disturbed districts about Ballingarry, where
General Macdonald has established his head
quarters, every thing continues peaceable,
with the general impression that the moment
the troops were withdrawn, dissatisfaction
would again .show itself. O'Brien is suppo
sed, by.the most cool-headed people writing
from the sot, to be concealed in some of the
mines in the neighborhood.
Wilmor and Smith's European Times says:
"It is quite evident, from all that has oc
curred, that the movement has totally failed.
The most sanguine of the Confederates must
now be aware that there never existed the
smallest chance of successfully coping with
the British arms."
France is quiet. The Paris papers an
nounce the death of Gen. Dumesme on Satur
day. A portion of the French squadron had sail
ed from Naples for Ancona.
. From Spain there is 110 news of any impor
tance. In Portugal all is quiet; the last dates from
Lisbon are to the 39th tilt .
The nows from Morocco is that the people
are again rising in insurrection.
There lias been a long and close battle le
twecn the Austriana and the l'iedmontese,
and victory has finally declared for Kadetz
ky, who has succeeded in effecting the ob
ject he had in view, and in forcing Charles
Albert to retire iteyond the Mineio.
AWFIX FirtK IX ALBAKY, NEW YORK
Fivt Hundred Houses Destroyed Loss, Tito
Millions Ten Persons Killed.
A lire broke out in the city of Albany, on
Thursday afternoon, nnd before the flames
could be arrested, five hundred houses were
destroyed the loss estimated at two millions of
dollars ! . The New York papers of yesterday
contain the following telegraphic report 'of
this terrible conflagratian :
Alianv, Thursday, Aug. 17 U P. M.
A destructive fire is now raging in this city.
It broke out in some out buildings in the rear
of Broadway and Herkimer street.
It has already crossed Lydius street, sweep
ing all before it on the east side of Broadway
to the steamboat landing. Ithasalso crossed
Lydius street in the direction of Church and
Under the prevalence of a strong galo from
the south, it is spreading fearfully north,
east and west.
The loss of property must bo immense.
The roofs of the house are so dry for want
of rain, that fire is communicated from the
sparks to houses in the neighborhood of State
It will be the most serious fire wo have
had for years.
The firemen of . Troy, West Troy, and
Schenectady were here in full force. The
conflagration in Liberty street, was stopped
by blowing up houses. It is feared that sev

UEW. TAYLOR STILL ANOTUER LETTER.
The Charleston Evening News publishes
the following extract of a letter from Gen.
Taylor to a friend in Charleston. The letter
is without date, but by its reference to the
Philadelphia Convention, it will be seen that
it was written recently : '
' l never had any aspirations for the Presi
dency, nor have I now, farther than the wish
es of my friends are concerned in the matter
nor would I have it on any other terms than
I stated when the subject was first agitated,
which is, that my acceptance must be with
out pledgor of being trammeled in any way,
so that I could be tho President of the whole
Nation and nut of a Party,
"I have accepted the ' nomination of the
Philadelphia Convention, as well as the no
mination of many primary assemblies gotten
up in various selections of the Union, in some
instances, irrespective of party, and would
kave accepted Ik nomination of the Baltimore
Contention, ha I it been tendered on tke same
terms. I am now fully, if not fairly, before
the country as a candidate for the Chief
Magistracy ; and if it should b my good or
bad fortune to be elected, I trust my course
will be such for the most part, regards the
management of our National affairs, as .will
meet the approbation of my fellow-citivtens.
Should they fail to do to, they will,' I natter
myself, have the charity to attribute my er
rors to the head and not to the heart. Very
respectfully, your friend,' Z. TitLo.

C7 The ticket, generally speaking is a
good one, and will, no doubt receive the
support of the party.
OIF" W e refer our readers to the pro
ceedings or the Democratic County Con
vention of delegates held at this place on
Monday last. A large number of candi
dates were before the delep-ates for nnmm.i-
tion, and the excitement was considerable.
The balloting for Sheriff and Register and
Recorder were close and warmly contested.
Until Mr. Yorks, withdrew from the con
test for Sheriff on the seventh ballot, there
was no more prospect of making a nomina
tion than on the first ballot.
For Register & Recorder, the ballotiifg
were still closer, and on the fifth ballot the
candidates were a tie. Mr. Covert, who
has been nominated for Sheriff, hardly ex
pected such a result, from the appearance
of things at the commencement.
K?" Nomination for Congress It
willbo seen by the proceedinjs of the con
vention, in another column, that Alexan
der Jordan, Esq., has been put into nomina
tion, as a candidate Ibr Congress of the 13th
district, by the democracy of this county.
This district, though democratic, has been
for six years past represented by a whig.
Our whig friends hud the tact and good
sense to unite on an able and efficient
member. If we wish to redeem the dis.
trict, we must present a candidate equally
able and unexceptionable. Such a one
we present in the person of Mr. Jordan.
Independent of these considerations we
think Northumberland county entitled to
the candidate. Union, Lycoming and
Clinton, have each had a trial and it is now
the turn of Northumberland. Sullivan
county has just come into the district. As
a new county with a small population, it
of course, presents no claims for the candi
date. K7" Governor: The State Convention
will meet at Harrisburg on Wednesday
tho 30th inst., for the purpose of nomina
ting a candidate for Governor. A large
number of candidates were named but the
contest we presume, will be narrowed
down to Wm. Bigler, Judge Eldred, Mor.
ris Longstreth, and Judge Black.
Bj? The Democratic Convention of
Clinton county met on Tuesday last and
nominated for Governor Wm. Bigler:
Congress Allison White ; AssemblyCol
John Smyth ; Sheriff James Catham.
Congressional Conferees J I. L. Dieffen
bach, W. W. Morrison.
The Whig Convention assembled on the
same day and nominated lor Governor
W. F. Johnston; Congress No nomina
tion: Assembly Capt. W, P. Brady j
Sheriff Thomas Gallauher.

Shields, declined. ' '
SUNBURY AMERICAN AND SHAMOKIN
FREE BOIL MEETING.
A free soil, or Van Burcn Convention is
to bt held in Reading shortly when, we
presume, an electoral Van Buren ticket
will be formed. '., A number of these, meet,
ings have been field throughout the State.
The free soil men are sanguine that they
will carry New York, and entertain, they
say, strong hopes of Ohio and Masnechu
setts, certain it is, that this Van. Buren
movement has of late made no little con
sternation in the whig camp. Tho whig
papers are beginning to attack the Van Bu
ren movement with great vigor and no lit
tle violence. They find in it a two edged
sword that is calculated to cut both ways.
In the Northern and Western counties,
Gen. Cass will no doubt loose a goodly
number of votes, but there is a strong prc
sumption that Gen. Taylor will loose a
greater number In the Eastern counties,
where a large proportion of the whig vo
ters are qunkers, who are opposed in prin
ciple, not only to slavery, but to military
men generally. The object of the Van
Buren party prevent an election by
the people, and thiow it into congress,
where they feel confident they will be
successful. Mr. Van. Buren may carry
New York, but we very much doubt it. II
the late state elections are a criterion, the
friends of Cassand Butler have strong hopes
O Hon. John M. Read, of Philadelphia
is recommended in a number of papers as a
candidate for Governor. Mr. Read, is a
stead la.st and consistent democrat, an able
statesman, and ranks as one of the best law
yers in Philadelphia.
Tub Irish News. The news of the at
tempted insurrection in Ireland produced
much excitement in this city among the 11a
tives of that country. Disappointment was
felt by all that the insurrection should have
begun so iiiauspicionsly, and all seemed to
feel disheartened at the result. The befrin-
ninp, it is true, is not very promising, but
the defeat of two or three hundred persons
hastily collected together cnn by 110 menus
bo considered the crushing of n rebellion, ns
the English journals delight in enlling it.
Six or eight millions of people, suffering the
most intolerable of grievances-, and goaded
to the point of insurrection, are not to bt
put down by the triumph of a few police,
men in a fight, which, though for a pnr
pose ludicrously dignified as a battle in the
exaggerated reports of the English papers,
can scarcely be considered much more in
importance than an ordinnry row. The Eng.
lish journals may laugh and lidicule the
matter as much ns they please, but it is
evident, that the English government looks
upon it as a much more serious mutter, one
that requires the most vigorous efforts on
its part, and tho most formidable array of
strength to crush. Ilenco it is crowtliiii;
troops into the country, nnd every way pre
paring by timely und, prudent precaution to
meet tho genenil uprising which is appre
hended. Whether tho Irish people nro pre
pared at this time to cope with so formida
ble and well prepared a foe, is doubtful.
A few days will determine tho matter, for
tho acts of the English government will
now precipitate events, and the sons of Ire
land be forced into open rebellion or obli
ged to abandon the unequal contest alto
gether. Phil. Ledger.
The New York Tribune's News from
Ireland. Tho news from Ireland, which
we find in the New York Tribune, is totally
different from that in the English journals,
and we can scarcely believe that a light, at
tended with such results, could take place
and not a word of it bo mentionn-.l in ihosn
The other New York journals, of last even
ing, receive this intelligence in in the follow,
ing manner. Tho Journal of Commerce
"From a careful examination of our files
by tho Cambria, including journals and ex
tracts of journals of every shtido of opiouiou,
from ultra-tory to ultra-radical, and from con
versation with passengers by the steurner,
we are convinced that the whole story of the
battlo of Slieveiiamon is a barefaced false
hood, having not a shadow of foundation even
in ignorant public rumor,"
The Mirror says:
"The letter containing the intelligence is
dated at Dublin, August 3d, and is one of tho
most atrocious fabrications that we have ever
seen in a American newspaper."
We might multiply comments of this kind
from the Tribune's contemporaries, but it is
scarcely necessary. Phila. Ledger.
The. Disaster at Albany.--The fire
which has prostrated a large portion of the
city of Albany, is a sad calamity to its in

is nearly 500. The lire commenced about

WucacAi, We, as members of the great

to testify our own and their attaqhment to
the democratic faith and adherance to the
candidates in nomination as our standard
bearers in the coming contest. Therefore :
Resolved, That the democracy never had
more reason to be proud of their position
before the country than now :At a time
when their opponents have no principles
which they dare to avow, they remain firm
and steadfast in their faith and clinging to the
immutable political doctrines they have ever
advocated, challenge a comparison, and rely
upon the intelligence, patriotism and discri
minating justice of the American people, "for
a right result."
Resolved, That regarding "measures and
not men," as of the cardinal principles of the
democratic creed, and as vitally necessary
to the perpetuity of our institution, wo con
sider it equally insulting for any party to ask,
nnd degrading for an American freeman to
yield his support, to any candidate for the
chief magistracy of tho Union, who is willing
to secure the good opinions of others by con
cealing his own.
Resolved, That the unquestioned integrity,
great ability, long experience in affairs of
State, devoted patriotism and sound unflinch
ing democracy of our candidate for the Presi
dencyGen. LEWIS CASS, of Michigan, just
ly entitle him to tire confidence ami support of
his fellow citizens and eminently qualify him
for the discharge of the high nnd important
duties which will necessarily devoted upon

Kentucky, wo havo a candidate for the Vice
Presidency whose extensive acquirements as
a scholar, eminence ns a statesman ami dis
tinguished services, both upon the field and
in the legislative halls fit hiin for the dis
charge of nil the duties of the station for
which he has been nominated, and commend
him to the democracy of the country as wor
thy of their united und zealous support.
Resolved, That the patriotic and consistent
course of the Hon. Simon Cameron, mid the
Hon. Daniel Sturgeon, in the Senate of the
United States meets our cordial and unquali
fied approval. Their steadfast adherence to
the true principles of democracy, unwaver
ing attachment and fidelity to the best inter

ty and sterling worth entitle them lo our

brave soldiers both officers and men, who so
nobly fought in defence of their country's
honor and who, by their valor and heroism,
accomplished tho honorable result, are richly
entitled to the warmest thanks of every pa
triot as well for the unequalled skill and
dauntless bravery they exhibited upon the
Jield of battle as for the humanity and mag.
nanimons clemency, uniformly extended
to the vanquished foe. Their brilliant achie
vements have shed fresh lustre upon the A
merican arms, and

The following article from the New Orleans
Delta of 9th invtant confirms tho statements
which have heretofore been mado respecting
tho project for the erection of a new Repub
lic out of the western states of Mexico ;
The Republic of Sierra Madre Col. Kinney
This gallant and distinguished gentleman,
so well known to the whole country as the
only American who could maintain himself
on the west side of tho Nueces, whore, for
many years, his celebrated Raucheros defied
the whole power of the Mexicans, and sur
vived a thousand perils, is now in our city,
enjoying a little quiet after the active scenes
of the war in which he has been a participa
tor from its commencement. '
Colonel Kinney is a master spirit. His
courage and coolness in battle, his skill in
the use of arms, his energy, tact, and judg
ment, point him out ns a leader, a chief,
worthy to direct tho dillicult ensorprises.
I hose of our readers who feel an interest in
the success of that great enterprise which
we had the honor first to developo and advo
cate, by which the beautiful region north of
tiro Sierra Mad re will bo redeemed from
Moxican misrule and mado un independent
republic, modelled on that of our own, will
be gratified to learn that Colonel Kinney has
engaged in that movement with ail his ardor
and great resources, and has already collec
ted at Corpus Christi abundant means to sup
port the stand whioh, it is calculated and or
ranged, will be made by the Mexicans in this
territory. And doubts which we ever enter
tained of the practicability of this enterprise
and we never had quite as many as some of
our eontomporarias, who have treated it with
remarkable skepticism, are now dissipated
by the fact of Col. Kinney's co-operation.
