At this season of,thc year tho sailing packets usually occupy a long1 time in accoiiiji1isliinr the voyage, and no steaiiiship will leave until thu 1st, of December. It is more than probable that we shall hear nothing further until llio arrival of the Acadia, which sails from Liverpool on the ltli of December, ami w ill arrive at Hoston about tho 18th. Soimrof our splendid packets may reach us before that time. Let us briefly post up the books, therefore, and sec how we arc to leave tho foreign account standing. According to all present appearances', the symptoms of general war, which at one time appeared soTilriniiing, have almost wholly vanished. The now ministry of France arc dis- posed to keep the peace, and all the European powers arc disposed to help them. The coin- pleto overthrow of Mohctnot All's power in Syria leaves nothing to fight about there ; and for the purpose of appeasing France, and as a ualvo to her honor the old man will bo allowed peaceably to retain the government of F.gvpt, so as to leave no ground for quarrel there. Tho war in Syria, Egypt anil Europe may therefore, if the outward aspect of affiirs may ho trusted, be considered at an end. Thu barbarian troops under the command of Ibrahim Pasha in Syria fell at the touch of European discipline like lla.v before the fire, and it is perfectly evident that they can never hope to stand boforu tho armies of civilized nations who understand tho science of war. While, therefore, the personal bravery and the talcnls of Mehctnct Ali and his son is acknowledged throughout tho world, their power will hereafter bo considered foolilo indeed. The greatest interest attached to tho news which we shall next receive will be in reference to China and the internal affairs of France. In regard to the former wc cannot repress tho wish although wc have no hope that tho arrogant Britons may get such a thorough flogging as they richly deserve. The war is cruel, unjust and unholy a war in which power, not right, is consulted, and bo tho result what it may to the outraged Chinese, the rest of the world must depend upon the magnanimity of England for the establishment of any more beneficial commercial relations with that empire. What sort of a dependence that is the history of tho past will show. Wc would as soon trust to the honor of a thief. In reference to tho internal affairs of France there is much to fear. The danger of foreijxn wars being past, the aroused passions of the mill titude will be left to spend their fury at homo. The ministry mav be sustained for a short time for the purpose of Bottling without emharras incut the cas'.em question, but we think it cannot s' and a 'year if the friends of Thiers organize to put it down. However, there is no use in spec ulating as to what may occur in France, wliere revolutions arc sometimes only tho work of a day. There is much reason to hope that public opinion is more calm, formed upon cooler delib oration than in former times, and if so, there i little danger of the violence which some arc ap prehending. -V. Y. Sun. FROM CHINA. Wc announced yesterday, in a postcript, the arrival of the fast-sailing diaman, the Ann Mc Kim, from Canton, whence she sailed on the liotli of June, bringing the long-expected intel ligence of the arrival of the English squadron. ami the commencement of that outrage upon na tional justice and the rights of humanity which England, in tho pride of bur strength, meditates consummating at tho' expense of the ancient em pire ol" China. The first arrival in tho Chinese waters was the sloop-of-war Alligator, on tho Oth of June ; the next, on the 10th, was the armed steam ship Madagascar ; and on the :21st the Wcllesley 71 made her appearance, having on board Com modore llrcmcr, commanding the squadron until the arrival of Admiral Elliott ; at the same tune with the Wellesley arrived two more armed stcain-bhips, the Queen and Atalantn, two sloops of war, a troop ship and eighteen transports, having on board sonic 0000 of the troops for land service. On the 2:2nd June Commodore llrcmer issued official notice of thelblockado of Canton and its river by all entrances, to toko elTect oti tho 123th. On the same day, the 12 Jtul, two of the men of war and several of the transports proceeded North, and were followed on the 'JlJr.l by the Wellesley and all the other vessels except the frigate Druid, the sloops of war Hyacinth, Volngo and Lame, two transport and the steamship Madagascar, which remained to enforce the blockade. Nothing positiv e was known ns to the destination of the squadron. .V. 1".

York on Saturday, in Mil days from Canton, bringing dates from that ciiy to tho dlh July, being ton lays later th in the last accounts received from that quarter. Adm'rtl Elliot, with tho rest of tho Anirm Indian force, had arrived at Macao. The block ado of Canton was in full force at last nnd tho Admiral and tho rest of the fleet had proceeded northward toward the is'auds of Formosa or ("liusan, or to tho Vellow Son. The destination of the Hoc', or its plan of action seems not to be exactly known at M tcao. Soma suppov) that they will tako possession nf Chu au, an irAind opposite the great emporium of N tii'in ; others libit they will proceed to the Vellow Sea, and atta'' I'ekitt, the eapitol itself. Wha'evcr plan of action the Dritish have adopted, there scorns to he no doubt of the ulti mate success, or the impirtnnt even's tint may iiruw out ol the expedition. I he whole force ol the Anln-lndiaii empire, numbering a popula turn ol lri(MX)tMHN), extending Irom the Indies to the lliirmapootra rivers, will be turned upon the Lclostial empire. Uy Cap'. Christopher himself wo loam verba' lv that the Chinese were not in the least alarm ed at the force the British have brought ngauis' them, and appeared to bo indifferent tit the ef fects of the blockade. They may rather like soino change than otherwise. The general opinion was that the blockade would bo enforced until some settlement could be ellectcd, cither in one or two years'. European discipline, steam power, military experience, and every clement of civilized ari. will unite in this movement. II the Chinese are dissatisfied with tho'r government, we should not bo surprised if the I'-iiiirlisii iu'c to incite a rev olution in tho provinces, and do as they did in Hindustan, turn one province out upon the other, a id make thorn do the fighting, while they are benefitted by the conllict.
