LATH AND IMPORTANT MOM ENGLAND. I5y tlio packet ship Encland, Captain Wiuto, news hat been received frum Eng. Innil up to Iho Ii.1t h (ill. Tliu qucsliun of their Irish policy lias been decided in favor of the tniiiisiors, by n niiijnrity of 29G nieuihurn tif Parlin incut being npninil, mid 3I1J fir them. II wo Inkn from tliu ininislurinl volo I he fJG placemen, who of coursu nlwuyn vote fur their employers, it leaves the ministers in n mnrnl iiiinorily of 14. The rndicnls voted fur the ministers t0 n man, at the entile time their lcadora declared it, wan their Irish policy nluno that, they supported. Wo arc happy, then, to see that justice to Ireland is the preilominant feeling in the British I louse uf Commons. But ministers cannot retain their places unless something unexpected occurs to give llieni more pop ularity, It is also equally certain that a Tory ministry could not. live n session, unless by coalescing with tho rndicols. This consummation may possibly take place, but it will he futile, for the men who lead tho tones ate so essentially different from the leaders of tho radicals, that tho alliance would be totally unnatural. Tim only cud of these disputes will bo 1ho fixing more firmly, in the heart of the English people, the conviction that liberal principles nlono can continue on the ascen dant. Tho Tories, bowovor much they may disguisn it. are nt heart opposed to freedom. They desire to return to those limes when tenant and landlord wore only other names for slave and his master. One feature has been developed in the lato de bate which wo deeply regret. That fea ture is tho slate of the veto with the mem bers of England. Wales and Scotland among them there was a great majority against Ireland. It was the Irish members who turned tho scale. This state ol things is inure deplorable now than nt any pre vious period, for it shows that much as the English may have advanced in civilization they liavo lost none of their ancient jeal ousy of their Irish neighbors, C A NAD IAN I NSOL B N C E. On Friday the 17th instant, the schoon er G. S. Weeks, Turner, master, laden with merchandise, from Oswego, consigned to Mnrristown, Bmckvillc. and OifiPens burgh, put nil o the port of Brockville for the purpose of dischnring that part of her cargo consigned to that place. The usual papers were sent to the Collector, and r ho deputy gave a permit In unload the mer chandise consigned to that place. Among tho deck fnpght was a six pound cannon belonging to the State of N. York, and shipped by tho Commissary General for tho Artillery company of this plnce, un der command of A. IJ. James, Esq. On the discovery of tho gun, some of the over, loyal subjects of I3rockville rallied incon siderable force, and manifested a disposi tion to soizo the gun. The Captian and crew resisted, nnd as the weight of the gun was considerable, tho captain and his men were enabled to retain tho property till Col. Duncan Frazicr. Collector of the District, distinguished by a valiant nnd safe attack upon the Steam Boat U. Stales, not long since, came nnd joined his aid lo the mob by inl:in possession of the whole, properly, fchooner anrl all. Tho gun was piven up to tho mob. the property marked with the brand of conquest, and tho victors paraded tho streets in triumphal process, ion, firing tho new nun, &c. The Steamboat United States carried tip the facts of tho case to Col. Worth, on Friday evening, ond with characteristic promptitude ho camo lo the rescue, orriv ing about 4 o'clock P. M. on Snturday. Hosonta respectful inquiry to the Collect or, asking on what grounds tho schooner was dotained. The deputy slated in reply, that he could givo no answer in the obtence of his principal, hut several of tho authori ties of Brockville came off, and Col. Worth whs surprised to find that the vctsol was detained without any color of irregulnrity in her papers ond without the allegation of onyjmprnpricty on tho part of tho Captain. Col. Worth thpn ili.cfiM'Prrwl Hint it ivnc o most infamous outrage without plausible pretext of nny kind, and cxnrcst-ud his "pinion freely to tho ISrockvillo authorities, nnd signified his determination to rescuo tho properly. Col. Marshall, an inefficient fort of a man, attempted to justify on tho ground or I ho gun, but Col. Worth would listen to no such grounds. The Brueftvil. lians became somewhat alarmed hv ibi interview, nnd efi'uris u-nrp innil., tf. fiMl some causo of complaint ogainst tho vcsc.d. Fixed ammunition wus carried on hoard several limes, which ihe captain discover ed and threw overboard, showing them that lie was a lolcrble hand to detect eon traband articles. Col. Marshall pieced a guard nfilurty regulars over the schooner, ell that wore stationed nt the place. Saturday evening Col. Worth came down to Prccolt and made a peremptory demand of Col Frnsicr for the rulen.K! of Iho schooner nnd her cargo. The answer was delayed till ten o'clock on Sunday. At tho hour appointed tlio coJUttor t nt liis anbwer saying that the vessol and lis cargo would be given up, but expressed a doubt whether tho gun could be obtained from the mob. Upon the receipt of this nolo Col. Worth sent another peremptory demand for all the property. Col. Worth hod previously ordered Copt. Turnar to mako no movement with Ihe vessel till everything was placed on board in the eamn state os when taken. Cul. Worth had Ins vessel ranged along cide the schooner, and every thing in rend" iness, with matches lit, to blow the first ispark into n flame that would ho likely to convince tho rioters und their officers that war, of which tho redoubtable Canadian Loyalists have spoken so Ireoly, was o game that two can play at. In tins stale of lliingB matters remained for four or five hours, when collision was often momenta lialy expected. Tho fort nnd block-house were in tho bands ol the people who car ried on these proceedings. They loruind inuir line, muiineu inu block house, and all tho arrangements fur tho enu-'eincni made, but they found that Col. Worth did not quail, that ho had cotua prepared lo burn powder and oxchango meinl wiih them, and thoy wisely, alter lung delay, concluded thai prudunco wus iho bolter wart of valor, and saved their nmuiuimiuu for a moro fining occasion, At about 4 o'clock in Iho afternoon n teamboal arrived from Kington with British regulars on board, which tho mng islrates of 15rorkville had prudently united tti their aid. By this teiufuicenu'iil Col Marshall wns enabled lonrtesl David Mair, Jones Ilubbi'll. nnd an tun-keeper by the nauio of Powell, who worn thu ringleaders of the gnng, nnd sent them to the guard house. Col. Worth's patience having by this time became exhausted, hn notified them that he would wait no longer for the peacenhli! delivery of thu properly, and when they found that them wns an cud lo all hopes of lurllier delay or intimidation, they made the most marked Imsto lo ro ship the cannon nnd release the prize, In addition to this violence, Ihcrn was Iho most gross insolence of language- used tounrtls the nlliccrs whom Col. Worth sent on shoru on Ins first n r rival, and many other thinns loo ilisirrncnfnl to mention. 'loo low and conlompiihlu to be conceived or spoken by any but downright blael guards, nnd uniting Iho moat degraded masses of mankind who form nnv kind uf society. It may bo proper to say that Col. Worth expresses tlio opinion that tho civil magis trntes of Brock villvu acted in good faith, and with eommendnblc zonl in their efforts lo restore order, nnd procure the restoration ol the prupotty. There are many other things in rnlnlion to this transaction that might bo moro mi nutely detailed, nnd wo might, then, amplify their enormity, and excite, perhaps, thu burning indignation which ovcry American will naturally feel, when the rights, tho interests and Iho honor of his country arc assailed. But why should wo cherish a resentment which can only hum in smoth ored anguish in tho bosom that cherishes it. This is not tho first, and by no menus the most gross of tho outrages which havo noon committed within n short period on our frontiers, and yet our constituted au thorities sit on their gilded sofas, "purring over petty schemes," and planning political campaign?, aliko derogatory to themselves and dangerous to tho nation. Tho I'rosi dent, instead of arousing to the importance of tho crisis, nnd looking to the honor and dignity of the nntion, sends his pons to Europo to bask in tho sunshine of that aristocracy who are justly responsible fur all the turmoil and disorder that derange the social institutions of Canada, nnd ex tend their malign influence here. It is due lo our own character ns n nation, nnd to the Canadians ns n neighboring people of common origin and common interest, that our Government should interfere, nnd de mand for the Canadas cither a whnlesnmo and liberal system of responsible Govern ment, or their cntiro freedom from British control. The policy of Mr. Vnn Burcn. ol playing tho fawning sycophant to British power is alike unwise and undignified, and had our Government assumed an attitude worthy of the confidence nnd respect of n people who know their rights and aland ready to do fend thcrn, wo should not have been dis graced by those outbreaks of tho factious and disorderly, which, though dictated by Canadian refugee! and incendiaries, have stained our good character. Had n zeal worthy of the nation bepn displayed in de manding and obtaining redress for the Caroline, nnd tho seizure noil confinement of mr citizens, in Canadian dungeons, hoen displayed, tho nation would" have yielded a willing obedience, without on effort to avenge tho indignities that have been offered. As it is, it becomes the American pcoplo lo bear indignity nnd insult patiently. They hnvo one right which con be exercised peaceably. The glorious right lo change their rulers. EMIGRATION FROM CANADA. Tho vory great extent to which emigra tion to Ihe United S ntcs, from Canada, continues to be prosecuted, warrants the belief that the confidence reposed by the inhabitants of those provinces in the long continuance of the present peaceable state of affairs in that quarter is both limited and slight. Indeed, should Iho tide of emigra tion continue for any considerable lcnth of I i in o to as great an extent tia it has pre Viilcd since the opening of navigation, her Majesty's colony will be reduced to a "beggarly account" of population, and bolore thu end of tho season' the military will nearly ouinumupr ttic civil portion of the inhabitants. the Toronto Mirror likens the stream of families, with their possessions of hordes, cnttlo add money, which is constantly pouring out of the Canadas into tlio Sintcs, to "a mighty Hood;" nnd tho accounts furnished by the papers published on both stden of the lines indicate that the comparison is not inapt. At one gap (Lcwtston) the average has becir 1000 a week since the opening of Iho navigation. In one day, Inst week, up wards of CO families urrived I here, forming n noble anil interesting group of 350 indi viduals! Within ton days preceding Fri. day Inst, 700 had entered Niagara county, in thN state, nt Lawiston tiloui! ; und on that dny eleven families, with their good-', paired through ijr wistown, on their way lo the west. They hnd sold out their farms lor 30,000, nnd with this money and their stock, implements, and fnrnitnre, wcto wending their way lo the ferlilu lands be yond the great lakes. The Toronto paper nsks, "And whnt'nrc wo going to get in return ? Mitres, recto ries, tytlies, and the colored population from Ohio nnd Kentucky. An agent arri ved hero yesterday, who promises-, in case the Governor gives him a scat in Ihe L" islalivo Council, In bring over 400 families of color. In point of education nnd politn-j iicss, this gentleman is very superior in many of our present magistrates." Monthf.ai., I!ay 27. Yesterday after noon, Hunaventuro Vigor, Ins brother, II. Newcombe nnd one Lauglnis, were brought to town in the Princess Victoria, having been Inkeii prisoners uu this side of the hue, by n lew men belonging to dipt. HhI luwell's company in Col.

Into miniator lo Spain nr rived at Philadelphia, with his family, ou Friday last. Fr.onmA. Tho Tory papers wore exult ing a few days sinco in most unmeasured strains at Ihe conversion of Mr. Dowing, lato delegate in Congrosa from Florida. An election has just been held in that tor ritory, and we should think Mr. D. would consider it a pretty essential robuko. Mr IJallzell, the whig candidate is elected, by the largest majority ever given in the tor tory. It is one thing to apostatize, and quite another to carry the people against the dictates of their own belter judgment. Connecticut, Tho Hon. Thaddcus Betts hns been olectcd U. S.

It is woll known to a very largo circle of friends, snd lo n no rnnll pniuun of the public, particular!' in New England, that Dr. Jarvis and his lady lived most unhap pily together. It was hoped that the af fair would not have become public, and that the mantle of oblivion would have been spreod over the whole affair. The parties, however, have determined otherwise. Mrs. Jarvis has applied for a bill of divorce, and has stated her grievances at length in her Petition to the Legislature of Connec. ticul, which is published lo the world, it is therefore no breach of courtesy, or deli cacy, to give the complaints of iho lady in our Journal. We shall give iho Doctor's reply to it, whenever it appears. There are probably but few persons in this coun try that have held more respectable sta. lions in society, or who ore moro respecta bly and extensively connected. Doctor Jarvis is the son of the lato Ilishop Jarvis, of New Haven. He wns educated at" Ynlo College, studied for the ministry, and was settled over large congregations in N. York and Uoslon. and we believe in Hartford. He is one of the ripest scholars and best linguist in this country. He ho? great rid vantages in life. Possessed of an ample fortune, he has travelled over n laro por tion uf tho old world and mingled exten sively with the most prominet and distin guished persons in this country and Eurpe. Mrs. Jarvis is tho daughter of lilisha Hart of Snybrook, sister of Mrs. Commodore Hull, nnd the lady nf thu Hon. Ilciunu Allen. Ihit few of the dnu-jliK.-rs of New England were better educated, or more respectably and fashionably connected. Shn Ino has truvcllod over a largo portion of tho world, and has a literary reputation. Whoro tliu fault lies, the public will judge when both bides nro presented. PostschH'T. Since the nboyo was written, we find the following in tho Com mcrcial : Tin: Divorce Cask. A correspondent at Hurtford informs iw that the case be tween the Itev.

Returns of the election hold lat week throughout Virgunn hnvo reached us from ii number ol counties, sutuo complete, nnd Botnu partial, hul not in sufficient number nur siifiiuienlly exact to nut liorizo tho for mation of nny opinion ns to tho general effect of Iho election on the political char acter of Iho stnlu government. So far as wu have heard, thu whig? have gnined in Iho stnto scnnlu, and fallen nil' in the house of delegates. Our present impression is, however, lhat the complexion of tho next legislature of the slate will vary very little from that of the last. The New York Times remark, lhat "in tlio state senate the opposition have proba bly added three to thoir number, which will reduce tho Administration majority in that body to 2, i. c. 17 loco focos to 15 whigs and conservatives." Tho election for delegates, so far as known, exhibits a falling in tho whig ranks, as compared with tho results of last year.

In 0 file of the "New York Mercury," published in 1761, wo find the following advertise ment of a monster, the like of which we havo never heard or read of. It beats all modern monstrosities, animal or human. The advertisement reads ns fallows: "Whereas a surprising Monster was caugnt in the woods of Canada, near the River St. Lawrence, and has with great difficulty been lamed, and brought to the House or James ijlliott at Uorlaer s Hook This is to inform I he Public, that it will be exhibited at the said house till the curious ure satisfied. "This Monster is larger than an olephnnt, of a very uncommon shape, having three bends, eight legs, three fundaments. It is of various colors, very boautilul, and makes a noise like the conjunction of two or I hree voices. It is held unlawful to kill it, and is said to live to a great hgo. The Cnna iliniH could not give it a name, till a very old Indian said lie remembered to have seen ono when he was n boy, and his father called it a Gormagent." A subsequent advertisement states that this monster wai romoved to Jamaica, L. I. for exhibition nt "Mr. Coom's." INDIAN MURDER.
