The Britannia arrived in Boston at 4 o'clock Friday morning. We received her news at-l yesterday morning. She brought eighty-six passengers to Halifax and fifteen from there to Boston. The news is of great importance. The overland mail had arrived. The Chinese had offered terms; to pay #-U),000,000 and to give up Hong Kong to the British. The Duke of Nemours is to be Regent of France. The C'hristinos at Madiid are still active again-t the Hegent. It is understood that the Cortes will be dissolved and a new one elected about the month of November. Tim Covet?Much has been said of late relative to the intended visits of her Majesty to several of the principal nobility, but we believe most of them to have been inaccurate. We learn from an authentic quarter, that, at (present nothing of her Majesty's intention has transpired, beyond it being known, that in the month of September, the Queen, accompanied by his Koyal Highness Prince Albert, and the nflblemen and ladies of the royal suite, will honor the Marquis of Exeter with her royal presence at his lordship's noble mansion, Burgnley House, Northamptonshire. The Coi rt.?The Court have left the countiy retreat at Claremont (still so called in the authentic chronicle of royalty) tor Buckingham Palace. The (.iut'eii una i-riuce ./Yioeri, accompanied Dy tne Hereditary Prince and Princess ofSaxe Coburg Gotha, arrived in town a little before five o'clock on Monday, in an open carriage and foui, escorted by a party of Hussars. The infants and suite followed in three other carriages and four The Queen has led a quiet life, walking occasionally in the gardens of I the palace with Prince Albert. On Wednesday her Majesty rode out in an open carriage and four, with the Princess of Saxe Coburg Gotha, Prince Albert and the hereditary Prince riding by the carriage on horseback. Col. Bouverieand Col. Grey also attended on horseback, and two Maids of Honor followed in another carriage. Among those who have joined the small dinner parties at the palace are Sir Robert Peel and Viscount Melbourne. Mexico and Texas. Housr of Commons, Aug. 2.?Mr. Cobden made some enquiries relative to the destination of the Montezuma steam frigate, said to be fitting out in London for an invasion of Texas, and commanded by an officer in the service of the British government. Sir II. Peel said he believed the facts wereihese: two vessels were fitting out, one at Hlackwall and the other at Liverpool. It was said that those vessels were for the Mexican government. Application had been made to theBritish government to permit them to be manned with British seamen, and that permission had been refused. The hon. member was under the impression that one vessel was to be commanded by an ollicer who held a commission in her Majesty's navy, lie could state, that in consequence of an application from the Texan minisleron the subject, that minister had been informed that no officer in her Majesty's navy would be allowed to serve the Mexican government against Texas. The Texan government had been informed that if hostilities should take piace, it was the intention of the English government to maintain a perfect neutrality. Mr. O'Connell said the treaties with Texas had been laid on the table at so late a i>eriod of the session, that no opportunity had been afforded of bringing under the consideration of the house the state in which those treaties left the communication between this country and Texas. There was a law in Texas that no iree subject of color should remain there longer than a certain time. He would feel it his duty, whenever a convenient opportunity arrived, to call the attention of the house to tfie subject. Lord Pai.mkrston said he believed the laws in Texas were precisely the same as the laws in the southern states ol the United slates. Mr. O'Co.nxell said it was only in the State of Carolina that the luw existed. Lord Palmerston said that so far from the Texan government being at our mercy, we were, on the contrary, at their mercy. [Hear.J They had already secured the recognition ot their indej>endence by treaties with the United States of America, with France, and the Netherlands, and the question came to this, whether the commerce between England and Texas should be placed on the same footing as the commerce between Texas and other countries, or whether we should be exposed to disadvantages to winch other States were not subject? Mr. C. Butler said that he did not think it would be proper to require of a state to alter its internal laws on entering into a treaty with another country. Mr. Labouchere thought that the house had no business to interfere in such questions as the present. It was a subject for the consideration of the governments of different countries. Mr. Hume said he should consider that it would be most desirable that our government should interfere if possible,to prevent the hostilities which had taken place between Mexico and Texas. Those hostilities would necessarily produce great misery in those States, and would necessarily greatly inconvenience British trade. Sir K. Peel said that the dissensions between those states and South America, had been undoubtedly attended with the worst effects They carried on their hostilities with the bitterest animosity ; pirates were encouragod to enter into their service ; they destroyed each other's commerce ; they pre vented the growth of their nattual prosperity. Those events, in addition, interfered with their communication witli those countriej which were the first to recognize their indejiendence. But it was principally on the ground of the fatal consequences to those states themselves that such hostilities were to be deprecated. Every efiort in the power of the British government would be made to contribute to the restoration of tranquility in those countries. & HOROGATIOX OF 1 AKI.IAMKNT. lilt* MOming Herald'' says.

Right of Search.?The following despatch has been addressed by the French Minister of Marine to the Maritime Prefects:?"By the terms of Art. 9 of the convention agreed to May 22nd, 1833, between France and Engjand, for the repression of the slave trade, the captains of merchant vessels of both nations, who think they have cause for complaint (roin vexalions or abuses of the right of search without seizure, are to make their declaration on oath before the competent authorities of the first port of their country which they touch at, or before the consular agent of their nation, should they repair to a foreign i?ort. This declaration, indicating the damage they lay claim to, is to be verified by means of examinations on oath of the chief members of the crew, or of passengers, who may have been witnesses of the search, and informations of the whole are to be drawn up, two copies of which are to be delivered to the captain, who is to forword one to his government in support of his complaint. In ease the captain shall be absolutely prevented from giving testimony, his declaration can be supplied by that oi the owner, or any other i>erson interested. These formalities have hitherto been neglected by such captains as have had complaints to make against English cruisers, and the maritime ami colonial administrations have not taken care either to remind them of the necessity of complying with them, nor have they conformed to tnem themselves, not requiring at the time when they send their report, or when they pass the statement of landing, the necessary declarations and examinations, as they ought to have done each time that they were charged to transmit to any department reports in which such complaint- alluded to have been mentioned- Von will, therefore,be nlcneed to give orders that, for the future, Art. 9 of the convention of May 2"2d, 1833, may be punctually executed in tin- ports of your maritime arrondi.-ements. It is proper also to remind the captains of vessels that, without waiting for their arrival in a French or foreign po.t.they are always to profit hy the first o|>portunity which oilers to get their complaints carried to one of the vessels on the French station appointed to protect our commerce in the latitudes where they may happen to be."

Elopement in Hiott Like.?The following case of elopement has caused no small degree of excitement in some of the iushionable circles .of society at the west end. The facts of the affair are brielly these.?On Monday morning last, about seven o'clock, a young la^y, of great personal attractions, and between eighteen and nineteen years of age, the daughter of a wealthy baronet, residing in Portland street, was suddenly missed Irom the mansion, and lit was immediately discovered that she had taken with her the whole ol her jewellery, which was of considerable value. Every possible inquiry was promptly instituted, with a view ol finding out the retreat of the fair fugitive, but no tidings could be gained respecting her, by any ol those members ot tne lutmily whose anxious solicitude lor her welfare prompted them to be on the alert. The "mystery, however, was, in the course of a few hours, cleared up by the arrival of the lady, who returned to her parental roof (which she had so unceremoniously tied from) in a handsome curriage, and by her siue was seated a dashing young Irish gentle man of fortune, to whom she had on the same morning been united in bonds indissoluble, at a church not far distant. The "happy couple" alighted, and entered the dwelling, when the lady acquainted papa with the fact that she was married, and that she and her hushuitd were about to quit London for the Emerald Isle. Whether a reconciliation took place between the baronet aud his daughter, we are unable to suy with any degree of certainty ; but we believe the "error" has been forgiven.?Situ. Cheap verst-s drak Sucur.?At a meeting of the merchants and bankers of London, held on Wednesday, at the Loudon Tavern, to consider the distress of the country, Mr. Ashworth produced a pound of sugar brought over by a workman front NewYork, for which lie paid three-pence.

Roars of laughter followed this appeal to the conjugal obligations of honorable members. Tiie Fasting Man.?Bernard Cavanagh, the fasting man, who left his native village to speculate on the gullibility of the public?and a profitable speculation it was for some time, until the imposter was detected?returned to his father's house,near Swinford, on Saturday, and, on Sunday made his appearance in the cnapel of that town.

ITiis request was accordingly complied with, the whole of the pigeons having been started on their journey almost simultaneously, from Mr. Muntz's residence at Handsworth, and after making some gyrations in the air, they took an easterly direction, and favored by a fresh breeze, they were out of sight in a few minutes Mr. Muntz rms since received intelligence of the safe arriva lofthe whole flock, the first pigeon having reached Antwerp at half-past nine o'clock the same morning, followed in rapid succession by the others, in fives and tens, the last pigeon reaching i ts destination at half-past ten. Estimating the distance from Ilirtningliam to Antwerp (measuring in a straight line) at :VK) miles, and allowing for the difference in time between the two points, the first bird would appear to have travelled at the surprising velocity of ninety miles per hour! It is not the least singular fact connected with the match, that amongst so large a number of pigeons net one should have wandered from its homeward course.

Musical and Dramatical Chlt-Cbst, Popularity of thk Opera.?At the present moment there is a sort of rHge for opera, even in quarters where it would hardly be expected. Mr. Willis Jones, at the Surrey Theatre, was bold enough to engage Miss Roinef, Harrison, LefHer, Stansbury, fee., at very high salaries; his houses have been crowded ever since he commenced. We are told that Miss Homer is paid L50 per week for her services, and that the other singers, male and female, engaged to support her, are in proportion. Dkuby Lank Theatre.?Drury Lane is likely to be opened considerably earlier than the 1st of October, the duv originally named, in conseqnence of the unusually early commencement at Covent Garden. We have heard nothing more of fresh engagements by Macready, but we are enabled most uecisivejy to contradict the rumor circulated a week or two since that Mr- and Mrs. C. Matthews are not really engaged. The articles arc actually signed for the whole period to which Macready's term extends, and they are to be paid at the rate of JC(>0 a week, besides the advantage of two benefits, if they think fit to take them. Covent Garden Theatre.?We mentioned some time since that it was in contemplation to begin the season at Covent Garden early in September. It seems that the day has been now finally settled, und that perf ormances will be commenced there as early ua ii... .iti, ..c TI.;., ... ... sooner than was projected a fortnight or three weeks since. The old custom of playing only three times a week is to be returned to. The new lessees of the Covent Garden Theatre will confine their performances chiefly to opera and ballet. Among the former Mr. Benedict has a promise for an early production of his new work, the libretto of which has been furnished by Mr. Chorley. Claro Novello, the delightful soprano, now in Italy, has been earnestly requested to return home to supply the vacancy to be left by the retirement of MissKemble, at Christmas; but her engagements at Turin, Florence, and in the south of Italy render that event still doubtful. In the latter department preparations have been made on an extensive scale, and among others most liberal offers were made to Mademoiselle Cerito to remain in London during the winter, which, however, she declined to accept. Miss A. Kemb|c appeared, for the last time, July 21th, before an Irish audience, as "Norma." for the benefit of the manager, Mr. Calcraft. The house was densely crowded, and the reception of the gifted vocalist enthusiastic in the extreme. At the conclusion the manager appeared before the curtain,and after expressing his warm sense of gratitude to his supporters, adverted to the arduous dramatic campaign thai concluded the seuson. He proceeded to account for the manifest decline of taste for theatrical exhibitions in Dublin, and. amongst many otliurcauses,assigned asn principal one the, lateness of the dinner hour in the fashionable circles. Mr. Calcraft next sjioke of Miss Kemble in terms of high and well-merited eulogittin, and concluded by announcing that, on the re-Ofiening of the house upon the 3th of September, Signor Mario, Signor Lablache, Signor Fredericks Lublache, Signer Costa, and many other performers of celebrity, would have the honor of appearing before a Dublin audience. Worcester musical festival will take place on the 20th, 21st, 22d and 23d inst., the bishop of the Dioi ese, I >r Pepys, having granted the use of the cathedral lor that purpose.

Knhini contemplates giving a series of concerts in some of the principal towns,_ commencing, we believe, at Birmingham, after his farewell -ipj>earanc" at her Majesty's Theatre, which will close about the 20th instant. The great primo tenor, we understand, has accumulated an indeiiendent fortune, which he has, however, no family to inherit. He has received rul offers from St. Prtersburgh to l>erfnrm next winter at the ini|>erial theatre there. We have never had at Brussels,Vsays a Belgian [taper, any example of such brilliant success as that of Mademoiselle Rachel. The receipt on the first night of her |?*rformance, was 7,300 francs, and on the second, 8,300 francs,that is, 16,800 francs in two evenings. The leading musical novelties at Covent-garden and Drury-lane this season, will be Rosini's Semiramidt at the former, and Purcell'a Kins* Arthur, at the latter: the celebrated song," Come if you dare," is in that opera.

Belgian linen and thread are to he still admitted into France on ihe existing duties, but British articles of that kind are not to be imported into Belgium, except on payment o| the duties set lorth in the French Tariff. Belgium is to reduce the duties on French wines onethird. The Navigation Act is moreover to be altered so as to give to French salt the advantage 011 that produced or manufactured in England.

" (tenti.kmen, Peeks, and Deputies :?Under the grief which oppresses rue, deprived of that dearly beloved son whom 1 considered destined to replace me on the throne, and who was the glory and support of my old age, I have deemed it imperative to hasten the moment of your assembling around me. We have together a great duty to fulfil. When it shall please Cod to call me to himself, it is necessary that France and the constitutional monarchy be secured against being for a moment exposed to uny interruption of the royal authority. You will, therefore, have to deliberate upon the measures requisite for preventing, during the minority of my beloved grandson, this immense danger. " The calamity that has befallen me does not render me ungrateful to Divine Providence, which still preserves to me my children, worthy of all my tenderness and of the confidence of France. "Gentlemen, let us now secure the repose and safety of our country. At a later |>eriod I shall call upon you to resume your accustomed labors relative to state affairs." The following is the address of the Chamber of Peers to Louis Philippe, in reply to the speech Irom the throne:? "Sire,?The Chamber comes to unite its griefs with that of a King, with the despair of a mother and venerated Queen, and with the mourning of a nation. A great misfortune has fallen upon us. That prince whom your care and your example had formed for the glory and happiness of France, to whom situations so difficult und circumstances so i,.,,i ti... ...D,,.< ...i... grew up in respect for the laws and in love of his country?whose valor on the field of battle our soldiers were proud of, and whose wisdom when he took part in our councils we acknowledged?this prince has been torn from us so suddenly that we can scarcely believe that he whom we loved to see by the side of his father is there no more. If paternal grief admits not of consolation, it is a duty for us to av what ought to sustain the courage and constancy which have never abandoned the King in the most severe trials of his life ; it is a duty for us to proclaim what ought to maintain the nation in its security, even wnen it is profoundly affected and afflicted. Yes, sire, this grief which unites all classes and all opinions in one sentiment is undoubtedly a sad, but it is also a (Hiwerful, proof of the attachment which France has conceived for the dynasty which she has called to the throne, and which she has entrusted the preservation of her liberties and her honor. Yes, sire, in this public calamity it cannot be doubted that we ull love the monarchy that we have founded; it is placed above the storms and discussions inseparable from the political existence o! a ( free people. It is the fixed point to which our rights and our affections are attached. It has now become indis|iensable to fill up a chasm in our institutions. Our confidence in the future lias been betrayed. Providence has been severe towards us; but we should be ungrateful if we forget how frequently it low preserved us. It will prolong for many years the life of your Majesty. God still protects I ranee, to which you arc so necessary; the royal child, whose birth was a source 0f public joy, will grow under your eyes; he will gather the lessons of your wisdom. Your sons, those turns of France, those faithful and devoted servants of the State, will constantly set him the example of love of tlie country, and of the fulfilment of duly. His mother, that princess who shared our love and confidence with the husband for whom she for too few years was the cause of happiness, will devote her life in rearing the King ol our children for the future welfare of France. And the whole nation, surrounding him with its love and its hopes, will prove to him that it is a noble task to reign oy the laws over a great and powerful empire." And the following is the answer of the King to "Messieurs les Paris?I am much affected by this address. I lind in it the expression ol those sentiments with which my own heart is |ienetratcd, and a new pledge for thatnnion of all the powers of the state on which is founded security for the present, and a guarantee for the future against the dangers to which they might have been ex|K>sed from the cruel blow has fallen upon me." Most ol the members of the Chamber had joined the grand deputation charged with the presentation of the address. All the lieers had crajie on their arms and on the hilts of their sworda. A decided breach is established between the extreme and centre frawht, and the party really hostile to the present cabinet is left without guide or direction. It appears now certain that the Conservatives again mean to elect M. Sauzet to the presidency of the Chamber; after which the Regency Bill will be presented and paseed, and the session, convoked for that special purpose, prorogued to November. The Chamber of Peers has unanimously voted an address of condolence to the King. The first part of the funeral ceremony of the Puke of Orleans?namely, the removal ol the body from Neuilly to the Cathedral of Notre Dame, took place on Saturday. The greater part of the garrison and national guards were under arms, and it might be be said that the whole of the population of Paris had collected on the road to see the procession. The Gazrttfdc Franrt was condemned, on Friday last, for a libel against the Crown, in articles written on the occasion of the death of the Puke of Orleans, to a fine of 24,000f. and an imprisonment for two years of M Paul Aubrey, the responsible editor. This sentence is generally considered to be one of uncalled-lbr severity. The election of M. La Roche Jaquelin was confirmed on Friday by the Chamber of Deruities. M. Duchatel, on the part of the Minister, denied that any government assistance had been given to the royalist candidate. The King has issued two royal ordinances?one authorising the Minister of Finance to advance a sum of -tOO.OOOf. to defray the expenses of the Prince Royal's funeral; and a second authorising the same minister to pay to ihe Duchess of Orleans the sum of 139,168f. 06c., being the amount fixed by the Ihw ol the 7th of May. 1837. as a dowrv in case she hould survive her husband, the Puke ofOrleans. * Ann he 1 Smith has presented his credentials to M.
