EUROPE. Russia and Turkey Hostility between France and the United States liaron Vay. London, Sept. 3, 1852. The reports from Constantinople confirm tho facts communicated to you by my last letter. The predictions of Kossuth in his speeches at Boston and Syracuse are fulfilled Ilussia is go ing on in her way to pet the Straits and a har bor in the Mediterranean, and you may be sure that before winter her army will again occupy the Danubian principalities. Incendiarism has subsided at Constantinople, but tho muftis are yet exciting the people against the oultana, tho he has dismissed his lletorm Ministry, and re placed it by Russian partisans. There is but one hope for the friend of Turkey that is that Omer Pasha, the great general, remains at the head of the armv.

Intemp'raiK" ' " The effort's vain we cant rehearse The evils of this withering curse ; Enough for us that we can feel Its baneful influence round us steal: -Its fatal simoon! fans our brow ; Presaging sorrow, death and woe. It tells of blood, of sighs and 'tfcarsy Of blighted hopes and anxious fews- Go ask tho culprit In his cell, "What doomed him there, in chains to dwell ? What nerved his heart, what made him strong, And bade him do the tempting wrong ? His languid eyes his wasted frame, And saddened brow will loud proclaim That Strong Drink, with its secret charm Sustained his soul made firm his arm. Go ask that child, whose once loved home, Has now become the drunkard's home, Why falls the tear-drop from his eye ? Why breathes ho thus the deep drawn sigh ? For sure his heart hath not yet learned Of cold neglect of cruel scorn : Intemperance hath his parent spoiled, Ah 1 this is why he's sorrow's child. Go ask that mother bent with years, Why mourns...

AUSTRALIA. Sixty-four years ago, while the American Convention were framing the Constitution we thrive under, the first English settlers arrived in Australia. A large majority of the party were convicts, the scum and outcast of St. Giles. A town rapidly grew where Sydney now stands. Accessions flowed in from the old country. The usual sources of developments, trade and culture, were busily energetic and in a few months the foundations of a great empire in the South seas were laid where they rest bo firmly to da v. But there was one curious incident in this first page of the history, obscure in itself but worth something as a propnecy 01 me pres. ent, which may as well be remembered. In the Spring of 1788, a fellow, whose mining skill had probably been acquired by practice on the dungeon walls of Newgate, threw the infant colony into convulsive, by announcing the exis tence of extensive gold mines a short distance back in the country. As an evidence of his truth, he produced a specim...

Submarine Diving. Mj. John II. Green, who is employed by Monsieur Maillefert to assist in raising the steamer Atlantic, has furnished the Buffalo Commercial with some interesting infor- niation respecting tho experience of a diver, from which we extract the following: 4 MTho marine armor consists of a perfectly air tight India rubber dress, topped by a copper helmet with a clear, thick plate of glass in front. The pipes which supply and exhaust the air. lead from the toD of this helmet. Tho pumping requires much labor; four and somo- times six men being employed upon it at the same time, and compelled to work hard at that, A great pressure of air is experienced by the diver upon his lungs' equal to 75 lbs. to tho inch, and very few individuals could bear it for any length of time. When first going into the dress, the sensation of oppression is very over- coming, but passes off in a great measure after entering tho water. When a depth of ten feet is reached in tho descent, tho dress ...

THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON England Europe has lost her most distin guished military leader. Too "Iron Duke" was the last man of that renown epoch, which will be known hereafter as Xhefrst revolution ary period of Modern Europe.

. .:. ... CUBA. .; . The news from Cuba Is somewhat exciting. The Crescent City Is denied anchorage and port civilities, in the'flavnna, because she employs Mr. Purser Smith, who is on offensive Republi can in the eyes of the Cuban Government. The truth is becoming apparent that the Captain General of Cuba, either from on ignorance like that of Parades in Mexico, or from desperation, is determined to precipitate a collision between Spain and the United States. The authorities ot Havana rely upon the assistance of European Governments; Engtand is too wise to struggle fur her chief debtor in Europe, a monarchy whose history has been fully written and whose expiring struggles for existence, betoken her feebleness nnd decay. SpanUh dominion on the Continent has ceased; nnd European Govern ments have long regarded Spain as a fatal wiu ness against monarchy, discrediting it, disgrac ing il by an imbecile diplomacy and a still mote imbecile domestic policy.

AN OPEN, HONEST IIEAIIT. I like to sco an open, honest heart, . Where frankness loves to dwell ; Which has no room for base deceit, Nor hollow words can tell ; But In whose throbbing plain are seen The import of the mind, Whose gentle breathings utter naught But accents true and kind. BOYHOOD IN AMERICA. I throw down a remark or two on an unoc cupied page, upon tbe character which boyhood Is taking among us or rather, upon the new and extraordinary relations which are arising in this country between the young and the more advanced in life. It is without a precedent in al history ! there never was any thing quite equa either to the presumption of the young, or to th meekness and acquiescence of the elders in thi matter. Men advanced beyond the middle o life are called " old fogies" by their juniors ; and as if this were not slang unfit for the very street it is carried up into Congress, and grave lejjisla tors accept the title, and bandy it about in their speeches as a good jest.

Porter commanding, arrived here thin afternoon, from New Orleans via Havana, four days and 13 hours. The Crescent City entered the city of Ha vana at the first break of day, and it is suppos ed by those on board that it was owing to not being seen until well inside the llarbor,ihat they were not molested. At sunrise the Captain of the Port came along side, and inquired for the obnoxious Mr. Smith, who he told was on board. He then informed Capt. Porter that as the ship was in port, no steps would be taken to turn her out, but that no communication would bo allowed with the Bhore, or any one from it. Capt. Porter said he desired to present his protest to the Consul, on which the Captain of the port politely offered to get further orders from the Captain ueneral. In the meantime he informed Capt.

The Dcke or Wellington. There Is too much truth in the following reproach of the Dub lin Freeman's Journal. The Duke was ntnong the few, very few men whose heart did not warm to hi own M native land:" It is notorious that the Duke became so iden tified in all things with England, and with En. land'a prejudices, that hU chief, if not his only, irremediable mortification was that he was bom in Ireland and of Irish parents. While living lio despised the nice from which he sprang, and though we would not move one laurel from the maavive chaplet which encircle! the brow of the great though faithless boh of our common mother, a just sense of self respect will keep this people from worshipping nt his tomb. The hatred of his own land was the weakness of this otherwise great man.. To forget it be catse of his glory and renown, would bo a weak ness in Irishmen, The Duke, considered in the light in whfch he desired himself to be consider ed as an Englishman will rar.k as the first man of the a...
