• REPEAL ASSOCIATION—October 9.
Mr. O'Connell described his future plans.
"My course is Manifest. That proclamation has
clam nothing to alter ray course of conduct, eecept so
fuses say attendance at the meeting yesterday was
concerned: It certainly did prevent me attending
that; bather() all its influence was at an end. I did
intend before Parliament sat to have had a simulta
neous meeting - of every parish throughout Ireland, cos
the same day to petition them; and those petitions were
to be signed regularly by ail the resident Repeaters,
commencing with the clergymen; I cannot now name a
day forthis great simultaneous assembling of the Irish
nation; fort wish the excitement and indignation raised
by this foolish and mad proclamation in the breasts of
thopeopleto be assuaged before we venture to do so.
I give noticeof my plan; and on n curtain clay, yet to
be appointed, every parish in Ireland shall meet to
seekthe restoration of their native Legislature. Be
fore the next sitting of Parliament, it will be necessa
ry to hold two of these simultaneous parochial meet
ings of universal Ireland.. The first, for the due expa
sition of their grievances, and the drawing up of peti
tions ter the Imperial Parliament; the second to have
these.petition* ad mted and signed man by man. These
meetings will take place after mass; and the necessa
ry business wilt he transacted in the little yards or en
closures attached to every chapel. I want to know
howthey will present our meetin to potirion sitnulta
neously throughont Ireland, altho ugh they may pr vent
our meeting in mates/dee.
Marengo , els,ia, was one of msreasons for giving up

Arbitrate:la Cowes universally. In (hist believe the

over Ireland there will be gentlemen dispensi d

I have also another plan. It is to prevent Irish es
tates being overloaded with mortgages, the interest of
which to handed slew to persons in England. The ob
ject is to buy tip the debts due on Irish estates, and the
plan is the most promising.
Afterwards, again exhorting the people to obey his
ruivicoond break no law, he said:
I will take the necessary steps for carrying out my

PETTSBURGI I, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10,1843
Fonntox Maws.—We give copious extracts
he news brought by the 11.4 ittania. The news from
Ireland is of the must interesting kind, and irdicates
that matters in that misgoverned country are approach
ing a crisis which will speedily determine whether they
will have to gain their freedom by the only means left
them, while the government turns a deaf ear to their
petitions and remonstrances. The struggle is now
coming in earnest; it cannot be hoped that the British
government will quietly ;ield to the demands of Ireland
and it is almost equally improbable that the Repeal
ers will now abandon the cause without a sanguinary
struggle to fling off the chains of bondage under which
they have groaned so long. Many who have been
close observers of the repeal movements, are fully im
pressed with the belief, that O'Connell and the prom
inent leaders, have long been convinced that by no
means but farce can the .Irish people ever obtain a re
dress of grievances, and that during the progress ache
agitation, they have been steadily preparing for this
issue. if it come to this—and we see no means by
which it can be avoided short of an abandonment of the
cause—the apapathies of the world will be with the
Irish people,and the fervent prayer of every lover of
justice and freedom will be for their triumph ever their
tyrannical oppressors. Ai d will not 'oe wanting to
sustalatheir righteous cause ; the friends of liberty are
libentl, aid ins t.;11 a struggle as the Irish people must
eaconater to obtain their rights, every hand and heart
will open to sustain and encourage them.

Wo do not approve of betting, and are sorry to see it
commenced; but we ate free to say that we think five
thousand dollars, bet on Mr. Clay's election, will be
more profitable than an investmens in any Stock in the
Union. [United States Gazette.
Well—we must say t h at this, is one method of dis
couraging the practice of political gambling awl of cx
ii people with more money than wit, not risk their
possessions upon a desperate hazard. "A bet upon
the success of Harry Clay," says the Gazette, "would
be the mast profitable of investments, but we do not ap
prove of betting." There's nothing so delightful as
sin, but do not sin—it's naughty. What an impressive
method of administering a. moral lesson. But we do not
refer particularly to this matter to find fault with our
cotemporary's mode of deterring his political friends
from the wickedness oft' eating elections as if they were
the hazard of a die, nor perhaps it is worth while to
say that in our opinion, his method of treating the sub
ject is likely to work rather adversely to his precept
than otherwise. We wish mainly to call the attention
of the democratic party to the fact alluded to in our pa
per of yesterday, that our opponents ate everywhere on
the alert to bring each possible element in play that
may contribute to their success in 1344. Now this
' five thousand dollar bet" in Virginia, may be regard
ed ns a striking evidence of the truth of our assertion.
It is part of the political game of "Brag," which is in
tended, appropriately encugh. to face up 'Harry of the
West and to bluff down opposition. Men, in these ca
ses, do not bet bettaus they feel confident of the success
of their candidate, but because they believe that by bet
ting, they may contribute to render him stronger than
he really is at the moment of making the offer. It is
an evidence of conscious weakness, and not an emana
tion from conscious strength. Still, however, though
it be a species of madness, there is no little of method
in it, and we should not be at all surprised if large cal
lations were made by our opponents in various sections
of the country, upon the efficacy of the betting imaeress
as a branch of their political operations for 1844.
They do not lack matey—their means are enormously
abundant—a large bettine" fond could easily be raised,
wherewith agents could be sent to disccuragn and to
"stump" the re orer democrat by challenging him to
hack his position by heavy stakes. Should he refuse,
the cry weekd of course be raised that he was afraid—
that he had no faith in his own assertions, and so forth,
for the sake of else effect that might be produeed on the
weaker brethren. We have seen this sort of thing in
all its bra Aches, not only in the county of Philadelphia,
bet throughout the state, and there have been elections
which seemed of convert the malls into a VASt. fatotable

full of excitement--it will, even if condocted in the
wisest and most preheat manner, raise 'he pulse of the

"dicer's oath, ' and over the table of hazard it may be
appropriate enough, but let not this wretched thing be
suffered to taint the policy of a great nation and contri
bute to decide who shall be seated in its presidential
chair. If be begun, it will not only spread mischief
and wretchedness throughout the land. but so sink the
moral tone of our people, that years will not rescue them
from the degnointion.
We are satisfied, indeed, that our rotemporary of the
United States Gazette. notwithstanding the republica
tion of this Virginia "banter," as it is termed, will see
the forgo of what is now urged and will join with us in
an earnest discouragement of any and every effort to
induce the citizens to bet upon the Presidentirdelection.
Ho cannot but see how replete with mischief t.ny oth
er course must be in those who contrbiute largely to the
formation of public opinion, while all political experi
encs shows that when a floodgate like this is once ful
lv opeoed, the sluices arc we to be closed until the
deadly inundation is spread far and wide, bearing a
morel pistilene with it.
MOHAMMED ALI—DES FRUCTIVENESS
In Mr. Gliddoe's second Lecture on Hieroglyphi
cal Literature, delivered at Boston last week, the fol
lowing fact was introduced in connexion with the solo.
tion of various hieroglyphical problems. Tim splen
did avenue that leads from the temple of Luxor in
Thebes to that of Karrac is flanked for a mile on
each side by colossal sphinxes and decorations, and
had 'Severn' of those gigantic portals, called Propylca,
which form so grand a feature in Egyptian architec
tune Each Pylon is adorned with the sculptures of
the Pharaoh who erected it, of which a similar use is
made, as of the Tablet of Abydits. The date is about
13. C. 1660.
"The middle gateway," said Mr. Glidden, "beauti
ful in proportion, and faced with the purest granite,
was the most perfect of all, up to the year 1838, when
Mohammed Ali, caused this magnificent Pylon which
had defied the Persians and Ptolemy Sathyrus and had
stood erect for upwards of 3408 years, to be blown up
with gunpowder!" This atrocity was perpetrated in
order to build nn indigo factory that failed to answer
its purpose, and was closed in 1840, and also to con
street some saltpetre works that do not pay; because
the chemists, in their anxiety to obtain a job, forgot
that the neighborhood did not furnish a sufficient sup
ply of nitrous earth to suffice for 400 pits. Thi• is
only one of the abominations of the recreant crew who,
of late years have cursed the land of Egypt.—Boston
It is a curious coincidence, that among the Algon
quins of the Atlantic and the MissisF ippi, alike among
the Narragansests, and the Illinois, the North Star was
called the Bear. This aceidental agreement with the
widely spread usage of the old world, is far more oh
servuble than the imaginary resemblance between the
signs of the Mexicans for their days, and the signs on
the zodiac for the month in Thibet. The American
nation had no zodiac, and could not therefore, for the
names of its days, have borrowed from central Asia
the symbols that marked the path of the sun through the
year. Nor had the Mexicans either weeks of lunar
months; but after the manner of barbarous nations, they
divided the days in the year into eighteen scores, leav
ing the few remaining days to be set apart by them
selves. This divisioa may have sprung directly from
their system of enumeration; it need not have been im
peded. Is it a greater marvel that the indigenous in
habitants of Mexico had a nearly exact knowledge of
the length of the year, aril at the end of one hundred
and four years, made their intercalation more accu
rately than the Greeks, the Romans. or the Egyptians.
The length of their tropical year was almost identical
with tberesult obtained by the astronomers of the Ca
liph mo rn bat let no
h oned erive this coincidence
from intemourse. unless eis prepared to believe that
in the ninth century of our em, there was commerce
between Mexico and Bagdad.'
