In a former coinmunic ition, respecting the recent disastrous failures in tho more .initio world, it was impossible for me to refer toother nnpor tnnt nibj cts. I will now give nil epitome of the opinions of some of the most influential jour nals, upon me present crisis, unu reier to some other mutters. Free Trade, the Currency Laws, Hail way pchemes, Corn Speculations, Short Crops, are topics which, jii-t at tlte pre-ent time, chiefly occupy the attention of journalists. It is sin gular "that didereut parties slmu'd allow their judgment to be led .istrxy, merely to uphold their particular creed. The Times, for instance, was at ono timo sneciing at tho Anti-Corn-Luw League, an! denouncing free trade. It now visesTits herculean strength in attacks upon the protective policy, and it sustains all free trade principles. It attribute the present crisis to anything but the true cause. Tho protection ists, however, I'm ! it in free trade. The failure of Ihe volic y or free trade is a tnost fruitful topic with the conservative press. The disaster which prostrated the. great hoiiso f Messrs. Hied, Irving & Co. is traced to freu trade. They have sunk a largo fortune in the West In lies. It is asked, in what respect do ihu failure of the'polatn crop, tho railway mi Ilia, corn speculations ami tho scarcity of the Totton crop, ailed tho condition of the. Vet India planter, who publicly attributes his beg gary to free trade? The .Murning Herald re marks. h id Ihere been no specul ttious.eithcr in railways or corn, Iho case of Jamaica would Ii.ivo been unaltered, "lib is submitted to the te.t of free trade, unencumbered by foreign con idefatinns. and it shows, the result. Tell us no ioni'cr tha' tho trader who has abstained from sneen 1:1 ion. anJ no. ii vericu in i a peculation, and no. diverted his capital irom legitiiiute occupations to unlawful schemes, is sa?n and inav lie fearless that solvent and pru- dent men uro secure, and that failures aro con- liw.,1 ii. tlin sn-enhitive and the rash. The planters of Jamaica g'uo tho lio to theso assu- ranees; thoy have fulfilled all tho conditions olj lawlul trade, and answered an mo nuiigauii that devolvu ou hoiie.-t traders: and Ihey are' miner.' ruined, nut by any mysterious process, but by tho wanton blow inflicted upon their in-! .lustry and exertions, by Iho mother country.", In proof or this tho Jamaica Despatch siv: "The Briti-h planter h been driven to despair, nnd Ihe Cubin slaveuwner exalted and cherish-', il." The evidence furnished bv thu Denatch.' nys tho Herald, accounts at onco for tho bus- piniion of a house engaged in tho biigar trade,' even were it twice as pound as Messrs. IM'' Irving & Co. The very difference In tlio prin of sugars between this yeiiriind the last, would swamp Ilic lirmot hoii-c in London, and break it credit, were it twenty times secured. ''Tin Time, talks so jjllbly of the natural con sequences of itinn, of railway panics am' the like, pointing to the recent failures ns evi. deuces of lis own great wisdom and foresight. Ins not hinted at the tmspihilitv of the connec tion between the failures and'tho working of ireo inuio. l no Jamaica planters sav thai "unless wo have some protection from the Unti-di nation, there is no alternative left to the Wesi Indian merchant but to throw up his property and tn appeal to the world nguint the tyranny ami injii'tire which have lieggareil linn! Some of the conservative journals ii'lrihute tho past and present slate of nll'iirs to the cur rency bill. Tho Morning II raid of Ihe 21 -t says: ' Wo are curious to learn how long .Sir Hubert l'eel and the Tinvs will insist upon as cribing all pecuniary troubles and mercantile disasters to the late famine, tho cotton crop, and Inordinate taihvay speculation, and bow n. .iv more failures are tn surprise the world nnd to threaten public, credit, before another element of mischief shall be admiMed into the calc'il itiou, nnd bo made to bear its rightful share of odium anil blame ? That at tho present moment, and (or ponp time past, there has been an enormous demand for money, and that the demand in a great measure has been occasioned by the causes set down, we are prepared, with tho majority of observing men, to allow; b it tho Herald insists that tho energies of the country have been for bidden all ill play, and denied all help by Peel's currency law. Again, it ays that "it will in?, urni'ir iioikc y ii.uumi cy i.o.naimcn Ptand on record for our cbililren to read, that in , spo'.cn of!

It is certainly curious, (ful .Manchester and the manufacturing towns, from wbenco the loud cry of free-trade ir-it came, the greatest distress is felt amongst ho operilives, whilst the mills nro scarcely open and there is a stagnation of trade, such ns has not been known for years. A largo and Influential meetiiiL' of merchants, minnfactiircrs, ship-owners, coal-owners, nnd ithers, interested in trade, and commerce, was 'eld utNcwcistle, onllie ll'lh of .September, " to take Into consideration the prcpcntiilarmiug state of the mnnclary nnd mercalile n flairs of the kingdom, with the view nf adopting such mea sures, in relerenre thereto, ns might be deemed expedient." At tliis meeting, a Mr. Milenlfo read nil extract from a letter which lie bad re ceived from n correspondent in London. The writer slid, " There is such a want of confidence in the city, that every pv.-on is of opinion that all, or mnt of the private hink", will go ; anil every person a p eais to look gloomily towards the future.
