Sho (.ailed fiom Liverpool on ilia ltli., aiideomcquently &hc lias had a passage of 10 iluys. The Caledonia left Halifax half past II P. M. Thursday and ran to" Huston 390 mile in 30 hours making the passage from Livorpool to Boston in 15 days. The steamer Acadia performed her outward voyage hi thirteen days and a few hours. Tho packet South America reached Liverpool In fif teen days and a half. Tho French Colonial .1inistor Iim cent or der to the French West India Island., in con sequence of the infamous treatment of tho fe male slavo and the acquittal of her owner, that henceforth all private prisons arc ah dished, and that slave can only bo confined in the public prisonr, and that r.t least one half of the judges must bo sent from Franco j with tome other mi nor regulations. Tho remit of the discussion on the secret Funds in tho French Chambers, was 235 against 1 15. The debate on the 7tb ult., showed some pretty sharp shooting between Messrs. Theirs and Guizot. It was rumored in Paris on Thursday after noon, that the Fiench Cabinet was disposed to offer its mediation to arrange the M'Lcod dis pute with the United Statoi. The Paris papersand letters of Thursday hue arricd. In the Chamber of Dcptiticr, on that d.iy, tlto .Secret Service Money Bill was brought for.v.ird. Tho debate on thisbill, which has rcrved to revive the fierce spirit of opposition to the Ministers, excited great interest. M. tluizjt entered into a long account of tho consti tution of the Cabinet, and the principles which it intended to pursue. He remarked that every important question had been disctis.-cd in the address ; and that sothiug new having arisen to cause disunion in the present majority, tho Cabinet would confine itJ2lflo its practical policy, and support tlio pro ject of law. The discussion was proceeding whin tho Post left Paris. Tho report that Charles Kcan and Kllcn Tree had been privately married is contradicted by I Court Journal. The Governor Former, American passage hip, was run into by the Nottingham uteamer end l'Jl lives lost, She was bound from Liver pool to the V. S. The wreck of tho Governor Fcnnor was fallen In with on the Sunday morning after the catas trophe, about mteen miles to the westward of the Skerries--. It had apparently, been split in two part.-, and the stem was gone. The cargo, among which was a quantity of iron had, doubt less:, fallen out, and tho hull, recovering its buoyancy, floated again. Two men were found in the rigging ; they were quite dead, but did not appear to havo been long so. A trunk was i!o found on board, its contents showed that it had belonged to M'lutyre, a gardener, one of the pwsangcrs. It has been stated, and if true, it is a remark able fact, that some ef the people on board the Nottingham, after the collision, and when tho Governor Fenncr's bowsprit was over the deck, thinking that the steamer was likely to sink, t etnpled to get on hoard the ship by getting on the bowsprit. Tho attempt did not, fortuul ntely succeed, from the difficulty of their making their way, and the failure was the moms of aving their lives. The following is the account given by Mr. Carter, the mate of the Governor Fenncr, of the collision : "About five minutes past two o'clock, on Satur clny morning, wc saw the lights of a tcaui boat. It was my ntcli un deck, and immediately called the captain. 'I ho steam-boat came up about point nnd n hall on our weather-bow, c liavinjj at tin- time utir larboard Uoln on beard. Wo thought she was com ingurt head to in. Wo had no light but that of the bum ilile, on the quarterdeck j and, I believe, it is nut considered naccssaiy or prudent for -ailing vessels, clear of the land, to carry n light. Wc waited .-is much as live or sit minutes to find out what way the steamer was really coming, and then the captain or dered tho man at tho wheel to put the helmhaid a-porl so as to give her a clear berth. If tlio steamboat had done the same, we should have cone clear of each other a long way perhaps a, mile. I'ho Captain, as soon as ho ordered tho wheel to be put, wait forwards to look out. 1 then looked over tho laiboaid side, nbnft the main ringing, and saw the whole bulk of the steamer. I said to the man at the helm 'She is on board of ml This as about a quar ter past two o'clock. Tho vessels came in contact, notwithstanding our ship paying on". When the crush took place, I heard the Captain call out seeia! times, 'For God' take save yourselves, the ship isiiikinc." the i.bbooinoftho ship struck the funnel of thcsieam and her bowsprit afterwards rested on her. On the third surge, f-lio gave t believe, down tho went, bow foremost. The tnlftail was the Inst thill" He saw of her. She filial very quickly. She bail on board a heavy eng.), lncliiiliiu a quantity of iron ami other heavy goods. The watch on the dctk at the time cons:s c, of seven men, the captain and myself. All the others on board were ashep below. Tiiecapiain ah) sang out to the men at the helm to relievo the wheel. His name was Muuroe. He waifjrm.'tly tnadoof the Bclvidereand'camuon boau! to work his passage to America, and we intended to make him second mate ol the ship next day. All the man, at first, went forward w ilh me to the captain who was standing between the night heads, but thev afterwards went aft tn the sh'p sunk, to be, as I sun', pose, on tho higher part of her hull. I stood some time, und attempted to go alt, witha view to save my wife and others hv lowering h boat. She, however, f nnk so fast that I via nbhgtd to give up the idm in despair. 1 left the captain, and went to the starboard side. . I sUod there a few seconds, till the water was, pc. baps two feet deep, as far afi is the mainmast, rind wafii gathering still further aft, her head being ncdily unJrr. I scarcely know what aftcrwaids oc eirrod. I got up, soma how in tho forc-riggui", and thence on to the larboard forcyaids which then cros ..d the steamer.

GHI5ATL3-T FARM IN ENGLAND, II3L.KII.VM If ALL, NOnrOUC. This place is renowned thtonohout Lnrland at least, and especially as the farm of Old Mr. Coke, the father of tho farmers of Noifolk. and I am hamiv. therefore, to have enjoyed an excellent opportunity of seeing the estate. I shall not Probably find in fi real lliitain a better specimen cither of the stylo of Kfe of a good old country gcnllenmn of this ren'ni, and of mo ancient school, or ol the management ol a nrst rnte practical proprietor's estate. Lrt me begin by L'iviii!' von some idea of the latter, nremisin" that this i the samu Mr. Coke who moved in the Houeof Commons the discontinuance of the American war of 'n and who, bavingcarriiuitin thegrcat and cxcit. ed hotly by n majority of one, was himself at tho sug. trclion of bis friend.

I Ins lie cut m Ins tann er's dress, with his whito top boots and frock on, for this was tho custom. Every American must respect Iho old gentleman for bis achievement, and they will not like him less to know that, every day at his table during that batbarous war, lie was nceiistonitd, ashe now declares, to drink thn beallli-of Urn. Washing ton, as the greater man in existence. This nheral spirit hasalvv.iys (h"imgui-hcd Mr. Coke; and ho be gin his career in Parliament with the war itself, and remained in it nearlv siv years. Were he still n mem ber which his age (&) now prevents, he would be by many years, " the F.ilherof tin; Hnuse." vv ell, now in I lie estate i anel lirst merely as r.inntls The Ian I here is about o.'OO acres : nearly the wboli of it U enrlosed bv a neat brick wall, extending about n circuit often nrles.

All the woods li.-.v.i been "lailtcd. The estate is plentifully sprinkled wilh various sp eies of tiers, in acres of for oris and avenues.

As I rode through their loin; winding lanes to-ilav on liorso hack, the air was Idled with the perfume of the forest llovveis, and with the chirping and llutteiing of birds. Tlio re.noter lawns are spotted with Utile flocks of sheep, of which over three thmiMnd are kept on the place, of the fiiuous South Devon brerd. One units also m the p'Murt these fine, sleek, bright-looking Devon dottle, browsing in herds, T.svre are more than three hundred of tbciit, inchnhni' an immense dairy be'H.les of Scutch cattle. Beyond the lawns. one gets at once into the eiillivaiiou, and a ring of tins, skntee, and slu liered hcic and tin re with aven lies and cor.ses ol tree's, ctieucling tho wlm e estate. I rode along the edt'e of the field of one hundred and thirty acres of barley ill one pi ice. In another wcro sixty acres of wheat-, and Ihere two fields of peas, twenty-five and twenty-seven acre-.

The head firmer told me, that thirty bushels an acre is rather an nidillcruit crop, and that f.nty nr fifty are more "the riidit thimr." It must bo borne in mind when I say thi, that Holkkain has been completely madeqver to .Mr. Coke. When he sueeceded to the cMateit was but a mere desert, fhetewcte no trees here seen, and it was hardly believed the land would let themgrow. .Mr. Coke says the rabbits were the only ciraturo that would live on it, and they were starving!

Howev er b ity or indiscreet may have been the language of .mi. King, 1 have in dmiht that in disavowing any in tention to ollend Mr. Clay, ho spoko what bo felt. I havo known .Mr. King, personally, for about thirty ye'ars. In early life, I knew him as an unassuming gentleman. In later days, as rather moruformaland still a luibit not unusual with men of a ccilnln age, w ho have been nccusloincd lo "a life of blessed single ness." lint always the gentleman. With theknow lcdge tbatlpo-sess of Mr. King, I have considered it I in an actof justice to say thus much. The President gave, last week, an instance of liber ality nf fooling towards tlio vanquished administration very diU'erent from that displayed by "tho Greatest and tho Ileal," when ho eanie into office. This was no less than nn invitation to the Into President and Cabinet, to dine with him, in company with the new Vice President and Cabintl. The invitation was ac cepted by all but the late President and his devout Secretary of Slate. The dinner was on Satuiday but Mr. Van Huron pleaded the necessity he was vineler of leaving tho ci ty, mid cleared out on Satuiday morning. Mr. Por syrh was prevented, probably, by one of those ollacks of indisposition which arrested him so opportunely hist .runnier at fiederiekshiirg when, ostensibly, on his way to Georgia to attend the Loco I'oco Convcn tion, and which maided him to write a letter, instead, to alarm the Southern People by tho bug'bear of the Pope of Home and Abolition. AH tlio rest were tlinrer a:na-zed, no doubt, to find ihemsvlves in such good eompiny, and all as mcrrvas if thsy had got back safely in their old quarters. Col. I)!ck, though he mul have felt hkea eat in a strange garr't, seemed tic happiest of the happy, cracked okes. gave toasts, and in the excess of his delight, al most hugged Mr. Adams. He entreated the venera ble Hx-prc-idcm to visit theWef,arid said ifhewo'ld only come to seo Iriui at the frreiif Crust!ni'., he would do any thing for him in the world, Mr. Adams thanked him kindly, hut intimated that hc.fcrtrahc was now too ohl to visit the Ctrtat Crossing?. I perreiteby fhcpnpi rs(lhat some impatience, and snuvapparciil diseouti nl is experienced, at tho tardi ness of the administration in making apnointiiients but this isnoljiist. The many important matters, of great pnhiie eoneern, vv Inch pressed on the considera tion of the President, on his taking the helm of State, were nea'cssaiily to be first despatched, and the only cases which could immediately bu atlende-d to, were those to fill v. fancies, an 1 commissions about rxpi ung. The rest weicobliged lo wait awhile, and will be taken tip, I understand, os soon as it is possible to dispose of the more pressing inatlers. Lvery thing will heatteiidcd loin duo time, and as rapidly' as cir cumstances will permit. Till: SPV IX WASHINGTON. New' 'oiiic .wn VnioiNM.

Several Delegates protested n-L-.iinst it most forcibly, os in palpable defiance of the l'i dcral Constitution. P. S. The bill has passed the Senate IB lo 10. Sim.co.ar Divoaen Case Tho Albany Argus furnishes the interesting particulars of an application for divorce, now pending before the Senate of tba' Slate, and upon which a favorable report from the Judiciary euiumittce has bun made. The peculiar features of the cis.' are, aecoidiug to the Argus, as follows : The common law fixes the "age of consent," as it i i termed, nt 1" years for u female'. Some years since', thest.itute law of this suto varied that ugcof consent to It years, and at tho sunn timo declared it a felon ious olfeneo to marry alcm ilu under that age, without the eons-cut of bor parents or guardians.

PHI DAY MORNING, MARCH 26, 1311. EXTRA SESSION. Wc publish today the proclamation for an extra session of Congress, to commence on .Monday, the y 1st day of May. The confusion and derangement which the past nial-adininis- tration of the government hos loft behind it, re quires the early consideration and action of Congress. The unsettled position in which thu Tories have left affairs which it was tlieir duly to have arranged, renders necessary itiiinc diatc steps for their adjustment, The call of an extra session is a mark of vigor and energy of a determination to carry out the will of the people, on the part of the Administration, which cau.-cs terror in the rank of Loco Pocoism. A writer from Washington, referring to the Proclamation says : ''The proclamation of the President, convening Congress on the .'list of May, is hailed with general approbation. change of measures' as well as men seems to be expected. It was necessary, perhaps, that the now administration should give the people, tbruogh lliuir roprutiuntatlvcPi an eipportunirv, at a very early day, to make all the changes that the exigencies of the times may, in their opin ion,iletinnd. J bus it is that the new ndiuiuis' tration, brought into power as it was by the most decidedly democratic inurement that was ever made since the foundation of the government, intends to give early und free scope to the wishes of tho people."

The promptness with which the Loco 7'ncos harcVirganizcd for the next contest, should not astonisli any one who is conversant with their love of power, and the reckless squandering of People's money upon their partizans. Hut we confess we were not prepared to sec M.viitinVax Buitcx virtually accepting tho rc-tiomination of that party, only twq days after the inauguration of President Hapiuiion ! In a letter addressed by the cx-Prcsident to Governor Hr.rNoi.ns of .Missouri on the tith March 16-11, acknowledging the receipt of the proceedings of the 1jco Focos in the Missouri Legislrture nominating him for the Presidency in 181."). Mr. Van IIl'hen virtually accepts the nomination, and urges immediate organization hy his friends. So impartant in his opinion and the opiuiun of his party, is prompt action, that instead of quietly waiting n nt il I his letter reach, es Governor It KVNoi.iis, to be by him brought before the Public, it is furnished to the Globo for immediate publication; so that Governor Reynolds will probably have tho satisfaction of reading it in print before the Manuscript reaches him if indeed, it was deemed neces sary to forward any other than tlio public reply. In alluding to his former and present noinina. tion, Mr. Van Buken says : "I did not on that "occasion nor do I NOW, pratss tn be tmiTer. "cnt to a station to tchich ciery citizen of the f'iifeii "States may aspire, byjust and honorable means, 'without in tho least interfercing with tho right of others. And ho proceeds to urge immediate organiz ation became in his judgment, there does not exist the least objections to such a inearttre. He says: "Preparations for the next Presidential "flection mb not ou this occasion, and at this "crisis, liable to tho orrmnry o!jecioii of prejud gingthe conduct of the incumbent for thu time "being, inasmuch as ho will, at all events, retire "at the expiration of the constitutional term." Here then, we have n i-occonuneudation for the immediate organization of an opposition to the existing administration ; and that too, by tho late incitinbont within forty eight hours after his election from the Whito House by an injured and indignant people. Without waiting to judgu of tho wisdom, or justice, or expediency of tho course of his successor in office ; Maim in Van IU'ben, the great rejected, and to his own dis. grace and the disgrace uf those who elevated him to the high station ho has recently filled, issues his proclamation from Washington im. mediately on the inauguration of his successor, calling upon tho.pooplo of the United States to reinstate him in the Prcsidctial chair, the duties of which ho has ko clearly demonstrated his in ability to discharge. Never before has our ccdntry witr.ocdtode.gradinganddisrtputablc a spectaclo as this ; and it was meet that Maiitin Van Ilimwt should have conceived and been the chief actor in it. - ,i. vjiio wouiu nave supposed, that a man who had just retired from tho first political station in the world, would have been content with the unmerited honors bestowed upon him, and not soch to Ecctirc re-election. Rut illrrnltu r conductor a nice sense of delicacy, arc qualities which ncrcr can hare cxistenco in the heart of a mere political dctnigogtic, who feels that his only hold upon tho affections of any portion of his follow citizens, is derived from tho actual possession of power, or the forlorn hope of his once again repossessing it. And this is pre cisoly the situation of Maktin Van Burhn. When at the close of tho last session of Con- gros, ho nominated his political partisans to fill offices', which every sentiment of honor and decency, us well as the practice of the govern lnont, required should ho left for his successor to fill, hen at the hour of midnight on the heel of an cxpiroing session of an cxpircing Senate, ho called for the creation of a batch of midnight Judges, he knew, ho felt, that ho was guilty ol conduct degrading alike to himself and ins station ; and Had ho intended to retire to private life, policy if not a regard for tho high place ho occupied, would have prevented his tilling tho vacanccs. But at that very time, his letter to the Governor of M'nuniri accepting tiie nomination for 1811, had been written ; and his last acts like all which preceded them, wore prompted by selfishness, without one solitary re flection upon his duly to tho country or the in- lltioncoof base and pernicious examples on the future administration of the Government.
