To our inexpressible gratification the Clyde steam hip, Capt. Woodruff, from Halifax, came up the bay about one hour after midnight yesterday morning.

His opponent, Mr- Gregory, had 880 majority. Parliament ml opened Feb. 3d, by the Queen in person Count Pozzi di Borgo is dead. France has refused to ratify the treaty h relation to the slave trade between the Five Powers. Lord Ashburtoa was not a passenger in the Caledonia, nor can we seo by the papers on what day he left England. Messrs. Due row and Davidge the actors are both dead. A new comedy oalled "Marriage" has been brought out at the Haymarket. The Earl of Westaaovalaad is dead. Celeste is playing with great tdai in Liverpool. A motion was to be msde on the 19th of February by Mr. Fillers, for the total abolition of the Corn Laws. In the Corn Market there is no improvement, and every thing was stagnant, owing to the speculations of the government. The stock on hand is great,and prices have a downward tendency. In Manchaster the Cotton Market was in a depressed and declining state; in Liverpool it was dull and heavy, with a downward look. The Money Market was mnch firmer on the 18ih of Feb., and Consols had advanced. Parliament had met, as announced by the last arrival- But the greatqoeitioa of importance brought before them was the Cora Laws. On this. Sir Robert Peel had brought forward a motion in favor of his sliding scale system, (on which the last ministry were defeated,) and which was tantamount to a delismmo'iiis ?a his past never to lesson the burden of the Corn Laws. Lord John Russet! proposed an amendment. It was debated three days, and on a division, Ministers had a majority of 128. The following is the result, from ihe London Times oi February 17ih.:? Parliamentary Divmoif, Feb. 16. ?Corn Importation.?Order for Committee read: motion made, and qaestion proposed,?"That Mr. Speaker do now leave the chair."?Amendment proposed, to leave oat from the word "That" to the end of the question, ia order ts add the words, "this house, considering the evils which have been canned by the present com laws, and especially by the fluctuations of the graduated or sliding scale, ia not prepared to adopt the measure of her Majesty's government, which is founded upon the same principle!, and is likely to be attended by similar results,"?(Lord John Russet?instead thereof?Question put, "That the word* propose d to be left out stand part or the question:?The Howe divided s? Majority, for the Sliding Scale?Aye* 349 Majority, against the Sliding Scale, 3-tf Majority for Minister, 133 The following speech of Sir Robert Peel's gives the whole of hia views on the sebject : ? Sir Robeit P*kl said ha had to eoatead against twoclasses of Antagonists; each, though joined in apposing biro, equally opposed to the views of the other; and he had expected that the noble Lord would have bean more explicit in hia motion, or in his speech, and defined the exact nature of his proSosition. There could be no donbt that fixed uty lurked under the ambiguous proposition of the noble lord; and he could not, therefore, understand how those whs were opposed to all dnty eonld support a motion, however vagne, which they must know was meant to be an advocacy of a Axed dmy. It was tolerably clear that the noble lord coald net have expected to maintain a compact alliance, unites by moviag a resolution ss vagus and inocaons as that bafore the house. He (Sir R. Peel) was aot called npea that night to deal with those gentlemen who aavoeated a total repeal of tha corn laws, and hn should therefore confine himself to the consideration of the eompara tire merits ot a fixed duty end or a sliding scale. He did not bel'eve ibere was any material difference between himself and the noble lord, as to the extent of the protection required by the agriculturist; the chief difference between them, and to which he bad to direct his arguments, icing the mode by which that protection was to bo practically carried out. The r.ght honorable baronet then went on to show ihe advantages which a sliding scale would give over a fixed duty, in preven'Mig frauds in the averages and gambling speculations in foreign corn. When he perceived the violence with which he was assai ed by gentlemen holding extreme opinion?, some thinking that the interests of the manufacturers were not sufficiently consulted, while others thought sufficient pro tection had not been given to the agriculturists, he felt the more strongly convinced that the measure was a good one, and likely to be well received by a'.l moderate men us n grent improvement of the exmine law. lie denied that the duties he proposed would have the effect of acting as a prohibition to importiou, except when corn was} below 51s, at which the home grower ought to he protected against foreign competition Ilia wish was to make theimportationjrfforeign corn supplemental to our uuuio ?rry imi iui it should supersede it in any degree, for if Jmportetion took place to such an extent, as to anperceda home-groom corn, the day might come whoa, from deftcunt harvests, or other cum, they mighl hare bitter experience of the imprudence of aiacoaragiufi agriculture at homo. The right hon. baronet then catered into eoiuo ealealationa to shew the advantage of the government proposition ever the present law, and the amelioration it affected aa compared with tha existing rate of daiios. The right hon. ba-enet thus concluded I believe that for mere party purposes sod obj*ets it might have been wiser for me to say, " Wa will stand by the corn laws?we will resist all change." Some hove said that all that was necessary waa to amend the averages, and the noble lord opposite is of opinion that that would correct the evils of the present system; bat other eousidcrstions and other responsibilities are pressed upon those who are charged with the admiaistration of the affair* of couatry.

(Lead aad prolonged cheering ) State or thi Cocirrnr.?Tremendous excitement exists til over England against the ministry for refnsing to modify or abolish the Cora Laws } and large meetings are held in all the large towns, and petitions got up to the Queen In dismiss hor ministers. Sir Robert Peel's sliding senlc system givesigrent eflenee.ln nil the lsrgetewas la the king dom the seale has been received with expressions of rage atid indignation. The custom of burning in effigy has been revived for Sir Robert Peel's epc cial nonnr in ueroy, Knenaur, Leicester, i*imchester, Hanlsy, and other towns. tho ptopl* hare testified in this manner tbeir abborreuee of the proposition for the perpetuation of the eliding scale. The proceedings at Manchaatar deserve especial attention. In thta groat amporlnm of capital and manufacturing industry, a requisition for a public meeting was preaented to the mayor, aigned bp 1036 individuals and firm a, comprising a great number of the principal merchant?, manufacturers, and baakere. The moat remarkable feature in the subsequent transactions was, that the requisition iats, after mature deliberation, agreed to unite agitation for extension of the tuffrage with agitation the repeal of the corn lawa. They cordially uaitrd with a deputatian of the workiag classes, and n rest assembly, including some of tho most opulent men in Manchester, agreed to rccolntioaa demanding the total and unconditional repeal of the corn laws, the extension of the snfTrage to nil males of fall age, of sound mind, and unstained by crime, and the ballot, and expressing their total want of confidence in the government and the Hons# of Commons as at present constituted. A very general determination not to pay taxns until their demands were granted, was also expressed. In Snlford, also, public meeting was held, with similar results, including n resolution uot to hold anv paper money, but to exchange it for apeeieStati or the Coohtet.?MAitcH*?t??t Feb. 18. ?The date ot feeling here, since the government plan waa first announced, and especially since the discussion on Lord John Russell's amendment, haa been most intense, and the certainty that the mrasnre will, without any important modification, be carried, has to day thrown people into a kind of political stupor, and who, before casting away all hope, are anxious to await the result of Mr. Villier's motion for a total repeal. Aa this motion cannot possibly have as many supporters as Lord John Russell's had, it would seem to be a waste of time, if anything i-t intended to be done with the view to counteract the government** intentions. A petition to the Queen, prayiog her to dismiss her present advisers is rapidly filling up. There are few petitions which have emanated from thia town that will be more numerously Signed- There is evidently a closer approximation at hand, between the represented and the unrepresented classes in Manchester and the surrounding districts. Shonld a real union cvpr hp fiflfrtpH. nnH th**ir Yf*rti*na/lirp#?fms4 (a ah* object, that object, be what it may, will not, it ia pretty certain, be long before it ia realized. An extension of the suffrage, vote by ballot, fee , free trade in corn, are what there ia now every chance of their being agreed upon- Sir Robert has no bed olrorea in proaprct. Demohstratiohs aoainst Peel's Conn Bill.? A public meeting was held on Tuesday, in the laige room, at the Town-Hall, Manchester, the Mayor in the chair- The first resolution was moved by W. R. Greg. Esq , and was aa followsThat this meeting has learned, with the greatest indignation, that the sufferings of the working classes, and the embarrassments of their employers, in raanafacturing districts, will receive no aileviation from any measure to be proposed to parliament by the present government, but that, on the contrary, their distress is met by an insulting proposition to perpetuate the bread tax, and thereby to keep up the first necessary of life, at a famine price, for the exclssive benefit of the aristocracy." Mr Alderman Brooks, in seconding the resolution, declared that he had signed the pledge for universal suffrage, being convinced that no good was to be done with a parliament constituted like the present. The following resolutions, and a petition to the Queen, calling upon her to dismiss the ministry, were also agreed to?"That this meeting calls upon the representatives of the borough, and such other members of the House of Commons as consider themselves the guardians of the rights of the people, to eppose, by all the means with which the constitution hue armed ihem, the granting of anjr supplies to her Majesty's ministers, until such time aj the corn laws shall have been totally and unconditionally repealed." "That while this meeting belives that no other measure but an entire abolition of the corn and provision laws can relieve the present distress, or save the country from impending is convinced that there can permanently good and impartial government, until every man, twenty-one years of age, of sane mind, and untainted by crime, has a voice in the choice of respresentativrB to the Commons House of Parliament." The meeting was afterwards adjourned to Stevenson's Square, where the same resolutions were unanimously agreed to. At the Salford meeting, held on Tuesday evening, Holland Hoole, Esq , the boroughreeve, in the chair, a icwiunuu in invur ui mc cnarifr was aaopieo, ii was also the following;?"That this meeting pledges itself to otter all practicable and active resistance to the exaction of taxes which are levied upon the people for clam interests, and which do not contribute to the revenue of the country; and farther, to otter all legally paasive resistance to the existing government, till the grievous wrongs inflicted upon the people by claw legislation be totally removed " Sevrat meetings have been held at Stockport, Staley-bridge, and most ot the other towns la the manufacturing districts. At the Suuthwark borough meeting, on Monday, an amendment in favor of the charter was carried by a large majority. Immediately after Sir ft Peel's corn bill bad become known at Wigau, a memorial, petition, and protest against it, collected 4,000 signatures in leas than twenty-four hours At Staley-bridge, a day and a half brought 3,000signatures- At Derby 6,386 were appended in eleven hours. At a great meeting held at the Town Hall, Salfo;d, on Tuesday last, an amendment was carried, which was afterwards ordered to take the place ol a substastative motion, whereby the meeting avowed their "solemn determination never again to pass or to retain for twenty four hours, without exchanging for gold, any Bank of England notes, until by the totsT repeal of the corn laws government, showed their readiness to redress tne people's grievances. The people of Haaley and Shelton, in the potteries, by way of showiag their indignation at the cruel msult offered them by Sir Robert Peel's mock measure ?t " awful importance," relative to sa alteration in the corn law*, yesterday paraded hia effigy through the priucipal streets of these townships, whh drum aad fife, amidst the rorwa and execrm tions of thousanda, who pelted him right well with mud and stones, discharged thiity or forty pistol bHoU at him, and set fire to him, amidst the groaning and hooting of an exasperated hoet of sufferers tram the cruel operation of theae wicked laws. Hoasr i* Krrier ?Immediately upon the arrival of the news of the ministerial measure in Derby, a large. cr?wd collected in the market place and burnt Sir R Peel in effigy. Before the execution, n capital sentence waa passed upon htm, in which he way termed the" basest of ministers." Bnaoronn ?A public meeting of the inlmhi tsnts of Bradford was h kl o.i Thursday laaf, in front of the Bowling Green, for the purponr of taking into consideration the proponed utananra vv ro EW YORK, SUNDAY M< of Sir Robert P?|, m regards thn earn laws Theoieetfng waa called by the constables, in consequence cf a requisition, requesting them to do ao. Half-past twelve was the hear appointed for cominencmK the proceeding, as beir g the boar at which the working people could find it most eonvenient to attend. A number of the mill spinners agreed to extend their dinner hour to two o'clock- The meeting was one of the largest ever held in Bradford.? There could not have been fewer than eight or ten thousand persona present. T. Salt E u, constable, waa called to the. chair. Various resoKitiona were paaaed, condemning Peel's bill in the atrongeat terns, and a memorial to the Queen was adopted unanimously, praying for a total repeal ofthecorn and proti-ion laws, and for the adoption of the charter. Sir Robert Peel was paraded in efligy through the streets while the proceedings of the meeting were going on. lie was at last taken to the spat where uuw hulrsome and carrion flesh in commonly burned, and there reduced to athes. Gn*at Meeting at Nottingham-?A large meeting, the efl-ct of Sir Robert'a new alide. was held in Nottingham, on Monday, at which Lord Rancliffe presided- He urged the people to stick together, and go heart and hand to destroy that ministry which had acted so base and treacherous a part towards them- He declared he cided with the char list* in almost nil their plans,and had all his life been the same con-is-ent supporter ofthein Amid loud cheers he declared himself iu favor of annual parliaments, universal suffrage, vote by ballot,payment of members, and uo property qualification for members. It was the abominable system sf claas legislation that had earned the infl snon oi the corn laws and other bad laws upon the people, aud only by the removal of the root of the evil could they obtain a full measure cf justice. The sliding scale was deounciated iu no measured terms by the several speakers. The following resolutions were passed by acclamation:?"That this meeting receive the proposed alteration in the present corn laws, brought forward by her m?i*sty's government, with the utmost indignation and contempt. They conceive it to be a cold and heartless mockery of the sufferings of the people, proving (hat men who could ofler so flagrant an insult to an ou.raged country are morally incapacitated to discharge the high functions."?"That this meeting is firmly of opinion that, with a government constituted like the present, all further petitioning would be vain, aud only subject the petitioners[to additional iBSllli U'jH rnnrs* nifirmtfilorl lniiiru? it <sniiA?iwM therefore, that the salvation of (lie country depend* upon the energy and unity of tbe people, and it thereby pledges itsell u a persevering agitation until the iniquitous corn laws are repealed"?"That this meeting is of opinion that the corn laws were enacted by an irresponsible government, and that, were they repealed under existing circumstances, there would be no guarantee that other equally cruel ancT oppressive laws should not bu enacted; we therefore have no confidence in any agitation that has nut for its object the rnaatrnent oTtha six points of the document called 'The People's Charter,'which would immediately secure not only the repeal of the corn, but every other bad law." . Sir Robert Peel has been burned in efiigv ail over the Kingdom; and he and the Duke of Wellington were hissed snd hooted by the mob en going to the Parliament House. The Creole Case.?la the Hons# of Lards on tbe 14th of February. Lord4Broaghaos brought before their lordships the esse of the Creole, la reply to his questions, the Eirl of Aberdeen informed , the hon.'e that communications had taken plaee between the Governor of the Bahamas and her majesty's government on the aabjset. Her majesty's government had given the inbieet their most nation* attention, and had sati ned themselves that there it no txitling authority for bringing the nerror* of the Creole to trial for mutiny and murder, itiB lete for delivering them up or detaining them in cut tody.

It was desirable that an international jurisdiction should be established by treaty; but the existence of the slave trade stood in the way. Lord Campbell, Lord Cattenham, and tbn Lord Chancellor, concurred in Lord Denman's statement of the law. v Lord Broogham stated that Lords Wynford and Abinger had authorised him to expreis their assent to the samo opinion Lord Brougham then withdrew his motion, and tha hoase adjourned.

Loan AnftnvaTons's Mission to the Usited States-?When tne government of this country, in exercise of what we conceived to be a sound discretion, selected Lord Ashburton as the individual best qualified, of all others, to effect, by his nrgociatious with the Cabinet at Washington, an adjustment of the interminable series of complications and misunderstandings in which the relations between Great Britain and the United States have become involved, we expressed our unhesitating sod unqualified approval of that proceeding. We did so, not because the set in question had emanated from an administration, the political principles of nhieh are in accordance with those that have always been advocated by this journal, but because we felt a firm conviction?and our conviction is founded upon mesne

of information of no ordinary character?'hat some such step was absolutely indispensable to the permanent preservation of peace, and the avoidance of thoae mutual calamities which an open rupture would inflict upon the two countries. Whether his L-rrdBhip will be pccessful or not it were hard, indeed to predict with confidence. The circumstances necessary to be considered, before tbe expression of even an opinion can be justified, are so numerous in themselves, and involve the survey of so many sub-currents of interests and prejudices, often running counter to each other, seldom or never concurrent, that it is impossible for as to be over-diligent in their investigation. **#*##*? We have not, in this article, entered particularly into any one of the numerous questions that will, upon Lord Aahburton's arrival in Washington, be the subject of correspondence between him and the American Ministers, and having already exceeded our usual limits, we must refrain at present from entering upon them. Mat they shall not be lost sight of by us. If in any way a peaceful termination of our misunderstandings be hoped for, now is the lime for the ell'irt. There is every day some new complexity springing up, and this must continue to be the case until an arrangement of some kind be agreed to. The Creole affair, from the disposition evinced by the United States Senate, is calculated to prove a* tedious and unmanageable a business as that of the Caroline. We know not the hour when some fresh piece qfterplexity may arise. The commercial relaubns between Great Britain and the United States will, we thke it, be not overlooked by Lord Ashburton, in the course of his sojourn in Washington, and upon this subject there will be as many differences to reconcile, as many interests to conciliate, as many prejudices to evercome. be tween State and State, in the very bosom of the Union, as if Maine and Miseueippi, Vermont and . Louisiana, had been separate and unfriendly territories, instead of "United" States. The question of slavery, of the tariff on foreign imports?these, and a host of other disputes, rage more fiercely between the several portions of the United 11 e public, than can well be imagined by a compact an< homogeneous people like us Thi w- ertion rounds strange, but we shall p ' before v have d with the aubject. For the preaent, let us >w ledge that, while we admit the admirable afications, natural and acquired, which Lord A ...urton undoubtedly possesses, ana which will I tiliarly available in the arduous duty he has eon h<j to undertake?while we willingly record our en -e approval cf the policy which dictated hia selection tor that duty?we cannot conceal from ourselves that the present aspect of affiira forbid# the formation of too sanguine hopes; and good fortune, as well as good policy, must pilot the diplomacy that would wends its way, without prejudice to the just claims of either party through the stormy *a of dangers, difficulties, and intricacies to which his American negotiation may not unaptly be London Morning Pott, PHb. 17." [Fro n the Liverp x>l Journal of Feb. lt.| Return at Use Caledonia Iteam Iblp The Caledonia, which left Liverpool on the 4<h instant, after having b *en at sea seven days, and experienced a most terrific gale, has been obliged to put back, with some damage, which we hope will prove immaterial. The folio wingsxtract from alerter of a passenger on board the Caledonia will explain the difficulties which that noble vessel has had to encounter, as well as the reasons which have led to the untoward event of her return. The letter ia dated offCork, 15th February :? " For the first three days after we sailed, we got on admirably with a fair wind, but on the morning of the 7ih, the wind chopped round, and commenced oonr harH On iKa 8ih. th* affirm inr?r#*Afu>d from the westward, with a heavy bead sea. It cantinued throughout the 9ih- On the 10th, the sea waa tremendous, and canied away our toar starboard bulwarks and ice house; filled the fore-c&bin with water; completely washed out the pasaenger*. whose berths were in that part of the vessel, ana thoroughly saturated all the bedding, aud sprung the rudder. Part of the after-larboard bulwarks and the iron rail on the taflrail were twisted off, the wheelhouse damaged, and the paddle box partly stove in. " The gale continued unabated during the llth. We had to steer by the sails whilat endeavoring to secure the rudder (the main piece of which was completely twisted in the case,) by lashing chains round, passing iroa bolts through it, and fixing chains over the stern. At 6 P. M (llth,) being then in latitude 49 20, longitude 29 W., the captain | and officera foand it would not be Bafe to proaeedon i the voyage, as they were, all of opinion the rudder would not hold together for two hours more in sach t a heavy sea. The captain, therefore, put her head about, for the purpose of running into this place for repairs. Lieut. Parsons, R. N-, also coincided with the captain and officers. " Notwithstanding all our misfortunes, I must say the Caledonia is a most excellent sea boat, for she roda through the whole gale like a duck. Too much praise cannot be given to Captain Lott, for bis courageoes and seamanlike conduct through the whole storm?in fact, on all occasions; and I reler you to a series of resolutions you will see published, drawn up by the passeners, acquitting him of all blame." This unavoidable accident does not diminish in the least our confidence in steam navigation across I ?La A llnAi.n t L ?? A ^ m n nA ia marolu utkot tnirtWt have happened to the best tailing vessels afloat. I The machinery of the Caledonia haa not suffered, we are informed, the slightest injury, which certainly goes a long way to prove that a well appointed steam-ehip is equal to a sailing veaael under the worst circumstances, and greatly superior in general difficulty. With the energy and promptitude which characterise the agents of these steam-ships (Messrs. McIver), we find that the Acadia is now ready for sea, and will leave Liverpool at two o'clock to-day, taking to Halifax and Boston the mails and passengers returned per Caledonia.

M. Ducos opened the discussion in support of his proposition, the Deputies attending in great force, lie was followed in a long speech by the Minister of the Interior. He alluded to the conduct of the Theirs Ministry, in 18-11, in rejecting the project of electoral reform, and contended that circumstances had not changed. He proved by returns, that since lfc#2 the electors had increased in the colleges. M Muret de Rwrd was left speaking. Marshall Soult was present, and was much congratulated on his recovery. The Ministry wished to divide on Monday,but it was thought an adjournment would take place, aa Dufaure, Thiers, Lamartine, and Billaulte were to speak in support of Ducos's motion.

Lordor Mor?t Market, Feb. is.?The state of the money market, though influenced considerably by the disturbed appearance of political affairs, has been sua' tainedmuch more flrmly than might have been supposed from the general disappointment cf the commercial classes with the new corn law project which has been brought forward by Sir Hubert Peel. For this minsure, though so much condemned in the maaufactuaing districts and all the principal out ports of the kingdom, amongst many of the wealthiest and mostpoweiful of the bankers and general capitalists of London, la viewed with the opposite degree of satisfaction ; as amongst these partius, inolnding the majority of the directors of the Bank of England,there is a moat insuperable aversion to the modern principle**!free trade.
