Kiiinoil.ivs after, the mate and crow determined (as they say, in' order to lighten the boat,) to throw seventeen of tho passcngcars overboard, which they accomplished, and some ot tlio most horrid and revolting scenes took place.

No important news from China had boon re ceived since the departure of tho llritannia. The overland mail which reached London, two ihvs after, brought dates from China to twelfth of' February, Calcutta to the 'JV.M March, and Ilombay to the 1st April. The Chinese Chief Commissioner Kcshou, in an interview with Captain lllliolt, evinced an intention to procras tinate, which, added to a report that warlike or ders had been recoil ed front Pckin, produces an impression that hostilities must bo renewed. Trade continued Mispcndod, and the Blockade was not raised. The Government appears to bo dissatisfied with Mr. Commissioner I'.llmlt's proceedings, anil Colonel Sir Henry Pottingor his gono out b- thu overland Iinliamail as Knvny, to super sede hiir, and with full power to settle all dif ference.

Junius lloskeu, commander of tho Ureal Western : (Jnr.vr Wr.sTunN Stkim Siiir, Briilol Channel, May 14, 18-U. J 'Sir Under tho impression that ice, tho extent it lias heen soon tins vear, lias never before been hoard of in these latitude. I givo you tin; following particulars for the inlurnmtion ol your leaders: On bunday April IS, the slui) steering west, ul 7 passed it ; at that time four or five others in sight ; at 0 14 passeil several small pieces of ice blow oil the engine. In a few minutes aficr, the ship was siir i minded willi light field ice, which nppearei similar to a field I rail through on the 1 111 Fehuary, 18IW ; this induced me to go slow ly, with tho hopes of gelling through us 1 had dune on th.il nrciision, hut by 9 !iO find ingit'hecume closely p icked, mid much thick rr, pruileiico dictated our escape by the same channel wo had enti ml. then stopped, and attempted to get the ship's head to tho eastward hv turning ii-head and astern iiulil 1 1'iskins states lint out, on Sunday, there was room for her to como round ; in the Ihvur, May 10, 1841. Tlio Louis Phil ippe, New York packet ship, has nt this moment arrived. Information havingrcach ed the town' that somo shipdreckew seamen were on board, tho report becamu concral that they belonged to the President, and the excitement was lieyonu all description. On tho arrival in dock hovvovor.a strong body of gendarmes wcro in waiting, and immediate ly took into custody tho mate and eight of the crow of the ship William Drown, bound Irom Liverpool to Philadelphia, which was sunk by mi iceberg in thu latter part of last month, as for yet I cannot givo you precise dates for anything except that thrco men were taken from the Crescent, which vessel had picked them up in their long boats. Hut tale of horror is to bo told about them. It appears, whnti the vessel struck, thirtythruo passengers, the mate, and eight of the crew, took tho long boat ; tho captain, three of the crew, and eleven passengers, took to tho olly boat; all the rest sunk with tho vessel. The boats parted in the night. Somo days after, tho mate and crew determined (as they say in order to lighten the boat) to throw seven teen of the passengers overboard, which they accomplished, ami somo ol the most horrid and revolting scenes took place Thnro wcro two brothers and a sister one family ; the brothers were thrown over and tho sister jumped in after them. One fine boy prayed for u few minutes to say his prayers ; they refused, and hurled him into the sea at once. Sonic clung to tho side the boat, praying for mercy, but their hand were cut oil, and thev were pushed into tho deep. Fifteen ladies and two men remained in the boat. Ono hour alter this massacre the Crescent fell in with tho boat, and saved the survivors ot this horrid deed. I he pas sengers remained on board the Crescent, the crew arrived in tlio VillcdcLyon they are now under examination befoio the American Coiinsul. Tho result I will not fail to com ninnicalo to you ; but you may rely on what I have already staled. I he jolly boat has not vet heen heard of. The dates of the Villc do Lyon have been anticipated by tho Acadia. Tho followingadditional particular aro given by (Julignani's Messenger. "The snip was ol I'luladelphia ; her company con isted of seventeen persons, and she had sixty-Iivo steerage passengers nearly all Irish with a full cargo on board She had a rough passage out, and struck against a field of ice at !), P.

She stovo in her larboard bow, and within two minutes struck another field of ice. Thu ship soon began to fill, and tho can- tain and crew got out the boats, which wcro cleared away at 11. At midnight tho ship went down' and the thirty passenger who could not he taken into the boat, were drown ed in her. They lay by each other till "S, A.- M., when tho Captain in tho cutter steered for Newfoundland. The long boat, being very heavily laden with so many persons, 42 in all, could not bo managed, and was obliged to steer to the south. At midnight sho fell in with nioro ice, and tho wind came on to blow hard, thu boat began to leak badly, and shipped a good deal of water. Finding sho was likely to sink, tlio mate consulted with the crew, and it was deemed necessary to throw overboard such of the passengers as were nearly dead. Sixteen were thou thrown into the sea and perished ; while the rest were nearly stiff with the extreme cold. Shortly liter a ship novo in sight, and tlio captain, who was up aloft looking out for ice, saw the boat, and stood for her at tho imminent risk of his own safely. This proved to bo the Crescent, and ihcy worn received with the greatest humanity ami kindness on board. Attliattimo ice was in sight on the surlace of the Atlantic us far as the eye could roach. Out ol the passengers saved, ten were women The Havre Jouriml adds to this dreadful narrative, that tho first passenger thrown overboard was a woman Sisters and re lations were afterwards thrown over ; and a young hoy who begged for a respite to say his prayers, v as not allowed it, hut was sent into the deep ! This journal adds lint the most serious rumors are afloat as to the cause and nature ofthis horrible catastrophe, which however, cannot ho cleared up until theCre scenl, which is daily expected, arrives with the surviving passengers, the American Consul at Havre has interrogated the sailors of the Win Brown, brought by the Villo do Lyon, and has had them committed to pris on. friends, who trusted Ibat a return to Ins homo and tho absence of ollicial cares wouiu restore him to health and usefulness, have been pain- fully disappointed.

Tho President does not doubt but that an intel ligent and patriotic constituency will cheerfully submit to tho increased burdens necessary to meet this deficiency and preserve tho public faith. A revision of tho Tariff laws so as to con llict with the Compromise Act, is suggested. A fiscal agent lor tho better collecting and disbursing and tho safer keeping of tho pubiic money' occupies a greater space than any other single topic. Tho President reviews tho opera tion of the three systems which have been tried ; and whilst ho considers that popular sentiment unequivocally demands tho repeal of tha Sub.

Memorials from the East and West con- li mil! to pour in for the enactment of a uni form Bankrupt Law. There is a spirit brea thed in these memorials in favor of this just nd salutary measure, which would soeni to indicate that such n measure must soonner or later be passed. on inovinq tho printing of a nicniori.il rel ilinj: to land claims, was met by Air. Clay with the expression of a hnpo that the subject would not be passed. It was im portant to have a correct' understanding as to the business' that -should occupy their time, lie thoncht it would he better to lim it it to thu subjects contained in the 1'iesi dent's jMes$aj:o ; for if they attempted to run into the business of an oidii ury session, then ho could very plainly sec thai the prnsont would be a very rx-oidinary one for its length. II r Voting replied that the memorial wn& f .-omo importance, and his only object in esiring to have it printed was that it might bo useful Io the Committee. Mr. Clay suggested that it would be better net to have any printed when it must bo manifest that they would not bo nblo to act on private claims. As to this matter of prin ting, it was time th.it some check should b put to it. Look at the docunifiits put on our tabic this morning (hulditig an iniuioiisu largo one in his hand,) would it bo bolievisl that it was possible for any Senator to wudo through such u mass of paper ?

Mr. C. said, ho would endeavour to prepare a protocol to-morrow. liuiitintr tho business to be discussed. Tin; Bankrupt law was considered, ho ud, a question of great importance, but ho was not disposed to commence a discus sion upon it this session, because he thought there was little probability that it vv ntild pass it this .session, owing to tho diversity of opinion that existed in relation to it. Mr. Cnlhutin suggested that the majority should indicate its wishes as to what business they would act on, and let the people know it. It was due to them that they should be informed.
