"New Orleans," are reported. On the whole, this letter smells stroegly of an evident fiilibusteriah origin. It was undoubt edly written by some one up to his ears in the plot* and counterplots of "the Junta " Under %he head of -'ano'her step in Spanish despor ism in Cuba'' the Union protests vehememly against the alleged decree of the Spanish Home Government, that Concha shall place every American >n the island under arreet in case of the successful landing of another filh busteriig expedirioa, or aaother attempt at revolution ud the island As yet this matter need^ confirmation, as it appeared only in the Havana news of the New Orleans Pic-eyunt.

The Hypocrisy of British Governmental Philanthropy.?ThoM who know the history >f British policy tor the last twenty-fire years?since the tendency of the oommere al and political affairs of the world has made it apparent that bat for her active exertions to the contrary, we are destined sooner or later to rank her as the leading commercial natfon of the earth?are well aware that her liberation of the slaves in her West India island* was the result wholly of the purpose of destroying eventually the institution in the United States. Her statesmen and political economists regard it as the key to or foundation of our business prosperity, whieh enables our North to rival her in the shipping and manufacturing busi ness. Henoe her desire to deprive us of it. Her Government, while professing to have been actuated wholly by philanthrope mo lives in changing the status of affairs in her West India islands, have very lately afforded proof in other points of their polloy, of the utter hypocrisy of such professions on their part They have bought fifteen thousand able bodied men from the King of Sardinia, at |333 eaoh, (dog oheap,) as fool for Russia* powder and balls. Their own citiaens are no to be persuaded to enlist in any suoh forlorn enterprise on any terms; so they pay Sardinia a million pounds sterling for the number of men and offijers, indicated above, to serve in the Crimea. The history of the war proves that half of them hafe beer* 801d unto death Unto a fate, the risk of whieh British subjects are no* gnffioiently loyal to encounter on any reasonable terms, including a bonus of $333 per annum ; for if Britons, to the manor bom. could have been induoed to enlist on the terms offered the foreign mercenaries, as a matter of course they would have been preferred. We cannot understand why ft is more philan thropic to buy Europeans, oivilised, educated aud to a certain extent, refined, to be used only to be killed, as in this'case, than to buy Afriean negro savages to be used in agricuU tural labor, and have their condition and prospects in all respects improved by th? change Britain's traffic ia coolies from India and China, exhibits her hypocrisy in a still more odious light. She has broken up the African slave trade to Cuba, to cripple us, if possible, and essays to supply the demand for labor tbeTe with what she terms coolie-appren ices Her merchants and ships alone traffic in them They are landed, apprenticed under great pretensions of a determination to care for them and protect their rights But that's the last heard of them. Once on plantations they are worked and treated far more cruelly than Africans are, and, if any of them come out of thetr apprenticeship with life, we have never yet heard the fact asserted. She fur. nishes (sells to) the Peruvian Government the coolies who dig out the guano on the Chineha Islands and load the vessels engaged in the trade No other slavery known to modern times ia so hideously cruel as that. The term of years for which she sells them to Peru is in sine out of every ten cases longer than they live, when so employed. That is, not one in ten survives to the end of the term. The guano is in banks or deposits as hard as baked eUy, and it is only to be loosened with pickst On being pioked, it crumbles into the state of fine dust in which it is imported here. Every time the pick is struck into the mess, a cloud of dustlike thick smoke rises, and getting into the eyes, nostrils, and mouths of the laborers, bo irritates their lungs, as. after they have been a short time at the laoor, to sot them bleedin t at the lungs, ending rapidly *n their prostration and death. They are without family ties there, or any comfort what ever, faring in all respects worse thaa dogs in any civilised country. Suioide is their fa vorite method of escaping the horrible tor tures of the situations into which the English Government imports them by the ship load, with full knowledge of the consequences of their act upon the poor creatures It not un frequently happens that we receive in this country as part of the cargo of a guano ship, the mummied body of a cooly, who, either by accident or choice, goes down in the wind-sail slide in which the article is "shot" from the bank of guano against which the ship lays in loading, into the hold. These things are growing worse and worse yearly, and have already oome to involve fa< more actual physical suffering annually, than was ever experienced by the -avage negroes of Africa in a year, from the undoubted enor mi'ies of the original slave trade Whenever the history of Britain's traffic in coolies comes to our mind, we shudder over the utter hypoc risy of her pretensions to governmental phi lanthropy, as being, in peint of faot, almost as bad as the thought of the bodily sufferings to which her cupidity thus annually subjects so many thousands of human beings.

An Important Mriee of Hew Regulations The Secretary of the Treasury, aided by his efficient Assistant Secretary, has just com pleted an entire new code of regulations for the future government of the United States revenue marine service, in which the main >bjects sought to be obtained are greater etfi jienoy with the means accorded by law, and greater eoonomy. We hear them speken of in term* of high praise by gentlemen inter ested in thii particular servioe. Under the management of this particular branch of the Government affairs by these gentlemen, a very commendable economy and greatly inereued Aggregate of duties dierharged by (he ship's offi ers ant orews have already been brought about, and there is every reason to belisve that the new regulations to which we refer above will further improve the efficiency of the revenue marine. During the late inolem ent neason its labors and services on our ooastt were the theme of the praise of all interwted in American teaward commerce. * We should not forget to mention that Wm. Handy, Esq , is the principal olerk of the rev enue marine brahoh in the Treasury Depart, uient, discharging the duties whioh were for marly those of the senior oaptain in the sefvioe wi'h two junior offioers for assistants; and dis charging them, too, in a manner which has won for him great praise Tom all interested in the prosperity of the United States rsvenue [?marine, as has been repeatedly testified by those gentlemen. Amerioan Wool ?We saw, yesterday, in the Agrioaltural bureau of the Patent Office, a beautiful sample of the wool of the Augora goat, from ,Mr. Richard Peters, of Atlanta Georgia. This specimen ;g V6I? flae indeedt being some te* inches long, as soft and gloggy ?%n slik. and pure white tn color. The goats from which this wool came, are the produce of an importation made by Dr. James ? Da vis, of Columbia, 8. C., in 1848?seven females and two males. The flock is now owned by ?r Peters, and numbers, perhaps, sixtr. Dr.' Davis is now about embarking for Persia to obtain more. The yield of the fleece, in this country is from four to four and-a-half pounds annually. The experiment of introducing these goats into the United States, has been entirely successful, the yield here being muoli greater than in Asia Minor, where it ranges from one to four pounds The only embar ras" ment to their very rapid increase amoog us thus far, is the fact that the male* born in the flock greatly outnumbers the females. Howell Cobb ?We are exceedingly gratified to hear that Hon. Howell Cobb bids fair to be returned to the next Congress with very incon siderable opposition. We have this informa tion from authority in which we have every confidence. His enlarged experience, ardent devotion to his country's best interest*, and commanding talent, will prove fortunate, in deed, for the public servioe in the hall Thou aands on thousands of all political parties and erery section of the Union will rejoice with us over this news. The 5ew York Delegation.?Hearing ru mors that the delegation of five leading gen tlemen from New York?Judge Vanderbllt, James Bowen, Preston King, and their com panions, now in this city, have oome hither on a political mission, we have to say that there is no truth in it They are here en bus iness with the government relative to enoroaoh uients of New York harbor. They have had, we learn, extremely satisfactory interviews with the President and others in authority here, who are understood to have received iheir views and to second their suggestions in (10 them) a very satisfactory spirit. The New Revenue Cutters ?The Treasury Department has received the models for the four new revenue cutters soon to be built They are beautiful things indeed The speci fications and drawingg have just beea com pleted under the immediate supervision'of the Secretary. Copies of the plans and draw iDgs are being made to aid those disposed to bid for them in making their proposals, 'ihe tonnage of three of them is to be from ninety to one hundred tons ; that of the fourth, from one hundred and thirty to one hundred and fifty tons. Ihe Surveyi of the Public Lands in Cal ifornia.?From information coming by the last arrival it seems that the Surveyor General there is progressing rapidly with the survevs of the publio lands in that district. An "in ?iex Atlas ' for the State of California and oth ers for the Territories of Oregon and Washiog. ton, exhibiting the progress of the surveys and the return of plats, and the limits of the present districts, has been orderhd to be pre pared in the General Land Offioe of this city. The Frigate Savannah. (Com 8alter'g Flag Ship,) Commander Mercer?The Navy De partinent have advices from this ship at Rio. on the 24th of January last. All well on her and in the squadron, as far as known at the Department. The Savannah was to have tailed on the next day*a a cruise along the coast. A Resignation ?Mr Hewston, melter and refiner at the Branch Mint at San Franoisco. has resigned, and"Conrad Wyegand, who has been employe! in that establUhmant as an assistant assayer, has been appointed in bis stead. An Army Officer Resigned ?The resigna tion of Second Lieutenant Henry F. Witter, of the 5th Infantry, United States Army, has been acoepted, to take effect on the 20th of May next.

Soon an im mense crowd collected,-and a fierce fight re sulted, in which knives and clubs were used. The principals being soon arrested however; the excitement diminished, and comparative quiet was soon restored.
