TH Vol. IX.?No. 81.?WhoU Ho. MH. ARRIVAL OF THE COLUMBIA AT BOSTON. Twenty-one Days Later FROM EUROPE. Starvation In England-* Inother Ore line In Coitor?Severe Depression In TradePolitical and Fashionable Intelligence, French Atlantic Steamers?Theatricals, Religion, Wars, die. Ac. The steamship Columbia, which left Liverpool on the 4th, Boston on Monday morning, at about 9 o'clock, making the passage in 15 days and 12 honrs. She experienced remarkably hue weather flip tKa ssaton The Columbia had nine passengers for Halifax, and forty-nine for Boston. Among those for Boston, are the Right Hon Charles Metcalfe, the new Governor General of Canada, and suite, and Henry Russell, the vocalist. The European Times, of the 4th instant, says: " The continental news, since the sailing of the Great Western, possesses no prominent feature. In Paris, they talk of another ministerial crisis?they are constantly having ministerial crisises in France. The opposiiion|are making a great eflert for the overthrow of M. Guizot. Considering how much that distinguished man has recently lost caste with his fickle countrymen, it is not improbable the efforts to oust him may succeed, if not on the coming occasion, at no remote day. As regards Spain, Espartero has been obliged to *' knuckle down ".to Louis Philippe ?by retracting the charges made against the French Consul at Barcelona, for unwarrantable interference during tha recent troubles. Spain is busy with her elections, pending which the treaty with England is in abeyance. As to the Portuguese, all hopes of arranging a commercial treaty with them are nearly given up. A slight dist-irbance at Geneva, which w as sson quelled, has been the only ripple of late on the smooth surface of continental politics." In the manufacturing districts, trade, which at the beginning of the year, showed symptoms of revival, has receded to i's former state of depression, if it has not gone beyond it. The corn trade partakes of the general gloom?transactions few, prices receding, and a feeling of despondency prevalent. Lord Palmerstait's motion on the Ashburton treaty was fixed to come on on the 16th ult. The next news will, therefore, be very interesting. ine cfliion iraae, iiKe every otuer treae, partake* of the enisling depression. The price of that staple was never known to be so low as at the present time, by at least a penny per pound. It is many years since the Liverpool docks presented so deserted and wretched an appearance. They are very bare of shipping. The easterly winds, which have prevailed nearly a month, have prevented the arrival of a large number of vesseb from foreign ports. Amongst the vessels now due, are eighty-five from America, laden with cotton, the united cargoes of which cannot be much less than 140,000 bales. Money is abundant; immense sums of it are lying comparatively idle, and, for anything like good security, it may be obtained to any extent, at a low rate of interest. The monthly overland mail from India and China bad not arrived when the Columbia left. The English creditors who have advanced-their money to the repudiating States in the Union, have addressed a strong memorial oil the subject to Mr. Everett, the American Minister, in London, with a request that it may be forwarded to the President for presentation to Congress, and to the different State Legislatures. In the House of Commons, Feb. 2f, Mr. Blewitt called the attention of the House to the North-east era Boundary Question, pending between England and the U. States. He complained of the insulting language used towards England in the American Senate. Sir Robert Peel hoped the honorable members' speech would not be regarded in the same light by the American people. He trusted it would have no effect upon the American funds. The negotiation with the United States was going on in an amicable spirit, and the violent language of a particular Sena tor must not be assumed to reiaresenl the feeling of the whole Union. Sir Francis Bond Head, it is said, is to be appointed Governor of the Cape of Good Hope. The Queen's ship Modeatet, which left Hong Kong on the 2Sd Oct. with $1,009>,000 on board, has ar rived at Davenport. Captain Rom's expedition to the South Pole, ia expected home in May. Only four men have been Iostdurii.g the voyage Captain Rom has penetrated the Antarctic Circle to 71 4f). A letter from Rom" states that on the Sth ult., the Tiber had overflowed its hanks, and invaded a third of ?fee city. fr ?*? ?rr ,.f y 1" i ment from *. n '< , it is sup . v ; i it*-his applica* i.v ,,rh '? . m ,mi lefehip.

The Pacha of Fjtypt ia about to eatablish a bank at Alexandria, in < |onjuns:tion with three European merchonta; the c apital, 'which ia to be GOO,000 dollars, to be furnish' jd, one fialf by the Pacha, and the other by the met chants. The bonded op warehousing syatem has been introduced in Ruiisia at the porta of Cronalradt and Archangel, in addition to those of St. Petershurgh and Riga. Tile experiment ia to be continued for three years, and will then moat likely be made permanent, if it answers. Mr. Turnbull has been appointed to the office of Commissioner of the Mixed Commission Court, established in Jamdica lor the euppreaaionof the slave irade. In 1796 there were upwards of 200,000 persons employed in tl? t> operation o4" wool combing ; in 1825 they were reduced to 90,000 combers, and now there are not mo'.e than 80,000 en gaged at it. Vtonfc a etateinent made in the House of Lords It appears that the sum raised for the cojlection of the starving r?or 'aHt 8ummrr? arising out of the Queen's letter, amounted to ?75,000, to which wan added ?25,000 collected by private subscription. Of this sum, ?65,000 has been expended in relieving the poor in various parts of the countrv, and me* remainder, is invested iu Exchequer Bills, i Mr. Charles Buller has given notice of a motion for March 14, " To move resolutions on the necessity of extensive and systematic colonization, with a view of bettering the condition of the people." The Morning Chronicle reports, on the authority of those who Hre supposed to be well informed, that the income tax will produce a sum nearer seven than six millions. The fashionable "season" in London, if it is to be a season at all, must be a very late one, for no levees or drawing-rooms can be anticipated until after the Queen's accouchement; therefore all the young ladies who are dying to "come out" must wait th?signal lor their debut withths beat patience they can muster. :e ne NEl A German astronomer announces the conjunction of Maraand Venus, the formerdistant from the sun fifty-three millions of leagues, and the latter twenty live millions. They are to meet in the sign sf Capricorn, in the course of the present month. The easterly wiuds, which have prevailed nearly a month, have prevented the arrival of a large number of vessels from foreign ports. Amongst the vessels now due are eighty five from America, laden with cotton, the united cargoes of which cannot be much less than $140 000 bales. A letter from Brest states that the fine steam frigate?f which are intended for the transatlantic navigation between France and the United States, are ready for sea, and will commence service in the 81 ring. Daring the gale of the 13th and 14th of January, 214 vessels were lost on the coasts of these isles, with 370 lives, and very nearly ?1,000,000 in value, including ships and cargoes. American oheese, of fine uuality, and much resembling prime Wiltshire, is selling in London at 6&d per lb. The trials of the Chartists at Lancaster, during the present week, excite a good deal of interest. Most of them are arraigned tor proceedings arising out of the "strike," or, as it was phrased at the time, the "insurrection," of which the manufacturing districts was the scene in August last. About fitly seven of these worthies are being tried, including some of the 1 aders, Mr. Feargus O'Connor, Mr. Hill, Editor of the Northern Star, Asc. There never was a good movement?for whatever opinion may prevail about Chartism, in the abs'ract, it is the political creed, unquestionably, of the great bulk of the laboring classes in England?so completely paralysed and rendered contemptible by the agents who conducted it. Most of these fellows, however, will be prevented, for a time at least, from taking advantage of honest and well-intentioned simplicity. The trials, which commenced on the 1st instant, will occupy several days No convictions have yet taken place. The Great Westkrn Steam Ship Company ? The nnnual meeting of the Great Westrrn Steamship Company was held at Bristol ou the 2d instant. The proceedings were of a somewhat miscellaneous nature, as will appear from ihe following outline :? The last year's receints arising from the Great Western were only ?30,830 wtiereas those of the previous year amounted to ?33,765. The falling off was attributed to the repot ts in circulation relative to her discontinuance?reports actively prevalent in the course of last year. The voyages of the ship herself during the last season were more than usually successful?those outward, averaging only fourteen days and a half, while the home trips averaged only twelve and a Halt. I ne directors, it appears, nave not been able to sell the s earner, although anxious to do so. The first voyage this year via Madeira, produced a gross freight mI ?3,275, being ?456 more than the first voyage of last year, nnd only ?600 under the average ol the season. The experience of the last season, it seems, has satisfied the directors that Liverpool is a better port for securing freight and passengers than Bristol, and accordingly the steamer is to run to and from Liverpool ihis year, with the exception of the last voyage The most interesting feature ol the meeting related to the new iron steamer, the Great Britain, a description of which we give in another column. She is in a very forward state. The frame and hull are complete; the whole of the upper decks, as well as the decks of the forecastle, fore-cabins, and aftercabins, are laid and caulked ; nearly the whole of the slate-rooms, as regards joiner's work, is comClete ; the fsre-hold, after-hold, and iron ceal decks efore the boilers, and abaft the engines, are nearly finished; the boilers and funnel are finished and fixed in their places; as are the cylinders, condeaspra air nnmns nnH nth#?r wriirhtv nnrfa nt fh#? #?n. gines. To diminish the chances of fire, the decks and partitions of the body of the ship, occupied by the engines and boilers, are fitted up in iron instead of wood work. Nearly all the masts and spars are complete, and she will be fit for sea in less than three months. This gigantic vessel, the greatest experiment ever made in this the greatest maritime nation on earth, will 6olve a very important problem in ocean navigation. The company's reserve fund has been increased to ?11,074. The Great Iron Steamer.?The great iron steamer, the largest vessel ever built, intended to ply between this country and New York, is now complete, except her decorative part, and she will be enabled to go to 8ea, h is believed, in the spring of the present year. The following details respecting her can hardly fail to prove interesting in the United States, where she will soon be an object of wond-r:? She will be capable of accommodating 800 first class passengers in fore and after cabins, and of carrying from 1600 tons of merchandize and upwards. Her accommodations will be as perfect as ample space, ingenuity, the fine arts, and the best of taste can produce. She will be appointed and fitted with every invention relating to steam ships which the present generation has introduced. The arrangements made for officers, crew, servants, and a limited number of second-class passengers, are most excellent; and if the combined powers of man could ensure success, this wonderful vessel will not be found wauling. The following are her dimensions, with detailed particulars of the iron used in her construction:? Length 3in feet Beam 61 ? Depth (total) from inside of the upper deck to the keel 31 "4 in. Draught of water whan loaded 16 " Tonnage (old measurement) 3600tons Displacement ot water when drawing 16 feet.. 3000 " Engine*, four, of 800 horse power each. The plates of the keel are one inch thick, and all the plates under water are f to half an inch thick at ihe top, except the upper plate, which is f She is clinker built, and double rivetted throughout; towards the extremities and quite aloft the thicknesses are reduced gradually to 7-16<h*. The ribs are framed of angle iron,6 iuchea bv 3J. bv h <lf an inch thick, at the bottom of the vessel, and 7-16'hs at the top; the mean distance of the ribs from centre to centre is 14 inches, and all these ribs will be doubled ; the distance is then increased to 13 inches and then gradually to2l inchesat theextremnies The boiler plaMorm is of plate iron, supported upon ten iron kelsons, of which the centreoties are 3 leet 3 inches deep; these kelsons are formed like the flooring of iron plates placed on edge. The hull is divided into five distinct compartments, by means of water-tight bulkheads. The decks, five in number, consist of the cargo deck, and an intermediate one of iron; and two cabin decks, 7 inches thick, and an upper deck, 6 inches thick, of wood ; these are strength ened and supported longitudinally by three courses of wooden upright pibars, 9 inches in diameter, running from the kelsons to the uppermo-t deck. Her rigging is hermaphrodite, with six masts, the whole of which, excepting the mainmast, (which is square rigged,) lowers, as occasion requires, on a level with the deck, being secured at their bases in -ockets, hinged, of a firm and peculiar construction 3he will be propelled by Smith's patent Archimedean -crew, of the proper powerand size required by the four engines, of 12U0 horse power, which are to work it These engines are splendid specimens of mechanism, ns complete as they can be manufactured, and have been placed in the vessel at right angles, for the purpose of their working to suit her build, and for the better distribution of their dead weight. There are six boilers, with four feeders to each The whole of ths above, and indeed every thing connected with her machinery, and construe tion, have been manufactured at the Great Western Steam Ship Company's depots. Lord Brougham and M. pe TocqtrKviri.E ?A correspondence has taken place between M. de Tocqueville and Lord Brougham, arising out of the assertion of the latter in the House ot f i_ .i- .. vt j- i.:. PU ijuruH mm in. oc i uumiriiuc HI ma wimmuri of Deputies speech on the treaties of 1831 and 1833, " had shown marvellous ignorance lof the right of search question." The French deputy repels, with a good deal of acrimony, the charge of ignorance, and denies that he wished to produce " irritation" between the two countries, lie accuses Lord Brougham of uttering a " a sheer calumny," " an odious imputation" in saying that he desired to engender bad feeling between bngland and France. Lord Brougham, who replies to his correspondent in the third person, alter a brief analysis of the speech in the chambers, repeats that M. de Tocqueville expressed himself in a way to show his ignorance of the American treaty of 1823, in which ihe United Stales acceded to the right ot search ; and he concludes by expressing his sorrow that he has given offence to M. de Tocqueville, bui " he is far from wishing to imitate the abusive and unbecoming style ol his letter." Farewell Dinner to Sir C. Metcalfe ?On Monday, the Colonial Society gave a splendid dinner to Sir Charles Metcalfe, on hi* departure for Canada Sir Augustus D*Este,K. C. H.,in the chair This festive meeting took place in the house of the society, St. JamesVsquare. Amongst the company were?the Baron de Behr, Mr. G. W. Hois*, M P., Kight H on. W. E. Gladstone Mr. J. S Brownrigg M.P., Capt Browniigg, Sirb. B. Head, Capi. Bal four, the K?rl of Monntcaahel, Messrs Bruce. Rlias, M'Dougall, Brooking, Kolte.Urquhart.Delany, Clarke, Brown, occ. Sir Charles Metcalfe, who croaes the Atlantic in :w y< N YORK. WEDNESDAY the same packet which conveys this sheet, carries with him a deservedly ht$h reputation. He enters upon the Government of Csnad.< under circuntstancesmore iavorahle than any of his predecessors of late years The resources of that important ad junct to the British crown can hardly latl to be developed by the new measure for the importation of Cansdian wheat and flour into this country, to an exten^of great, it may be, astounding magnitude; anil Sir Charles is the sort of man, we take it, to foster the new trade, and extend it to the benefit of sound Hdvice and comprehensive experience. In England he stands well with all parties, Liberals and Conservatives, and the hope is, that the ground wh'.ch has been won by his excellent predecessor, as far as the French population is concerned, will not be lost by him- The Times passes the following eloquent panegyric on the new Governor:? " Whstever difficulties Canada tnsv throw in the way of its new fJovernor, there ia no imalt comfort in the reflection that the aame strength of judgment and prompti tudeof decision which attracted the noticed Lord Wei lealy?the same vigor of action and courteay of demeanor which not only won the esteem, but relieved the embarrassments of Lord William Hentiuck ?the same impartiality, discretion, and good temper, which overcame the muit formidable opposition in Jamaica?still remain uneufeeblrd and powerful to reaist the menaces ol license ami to smooths the asperities of faction iu Canada. In a word, if Canada is to he preserved in no hands could it be more secure than in thoseof sir C. Metcalfe: and we are thankful to the present Government lor making such an appointment." The creditors who have advnneed their money to the repudiating States in the Union, have addressed a strong memorial on the subject to Mr. Everett, the American Minister in London, with a request that it may b-forwarded to the President for presentation to Congress, and to the different State Legisla turea. The memorial advances every possible argument for the m lintenancr of the credit of the States, and shows truly enough the utmost irretrievable injury which A merican credit has sustained in Europe through the dishonesty oi the StaU-a wln.di have repudiated. It has received a great number of signatures. The most striking passage relates to the straightened pecuniary circumstances of the majority of the sufferers, which we subjoin Every true American?every honest and right hearted man ?must desire to see so loul a stain wiped from the escutcheon ot his country. The fact lhat in the money markets of Europe. American credit is lower than that of any <-ther government, ought to stimulate every true born Yankee?every one in whom the amor patrirr is not extinct, to restore the national character to the same elevated position in which it stood before repudiation became fashionable. "An impression, we understand, prevails very generally amongst your people, that their creditors in this country are, in great measure, men of large fortune*, to whom a failure in their securities can occasion hut little inconvenience. Even if such were the case, it would, in our view of the matter, turnish no ground tor any departure trom the ordinary obligations ot good faith. In tact, however, though there may be a few amongst us iu more affluent circumstances, yet by far the larger portion of us are persons in the middle ranks of life?officers oa half pay?superannuated clerks?retired tradesmen living on small means?aged spinsters, widows and orphans, many of whom have invested their all in t e purchase of your securities, at high prices, and now dapend for their subsistence, some even for their daily bread, on the good faith of your people." The Hank of England has issued the following notice respecting advances to the public:?The Governor and Company of the Bank of England are ready, until further notice, to receive applications for loans upon the deposit of approved bills of exchange, not having more than six months to run. Exchequer bills and East India bonds; such loans to be repaid on or before the 19th of April next, with interest at the rate of ?3 per cent per annum, and to be for sums of not less than ?2000 each. In every case of an advance by the Bank of England, in pursuance of the notice dated this day, a promissory note will be required, whether the advance be upon bills of exchange. Exchequer bills, or India bonds." Bank of England. March 2,1843. This is a further reduction of one-half per cent. Vice Chancellor V'igram gave judgment on the 25th ultimo, on a bill filed bv Nicholas Suisse, the valet of the late Marquis of Hertford, agaiast Lord Lowtherand the other executors, to compel payment of legacies under the Marquis's will. The Marquis made nineteen codicils to his will, under eight of which the plaintiff claimed legacies; in six of the codicils he was specially named; in the other codi ci's he was classed with the other servants of the Marquis. The auestion which was before the Court was, whether the legacy of half of the sum of ?16.000, given by the last codicil as a provision for fnp Qprunn ta wua a Uironv in o A A t mn *-? ? bequests to the plaintiff, or whether it was in substitution of such preceding legacies, which amounted to ?10,600. The Court decided that it was additional, and decreed payment of the whole sum. Trade with China.?The Gazette of the 28ih ult, contains an Order in Council, which, after reciting the authority ol the Act 3 and 4 William IV., " to regulate the trade to China and India," makes this declaration :?" Now, therefore, her Majesty in Council is pleased, by and with the advice of her Privy Council, to prohibit, and doth hereby prohibit, her subjects from resorting, lor the purposes of trade and commerce, to any other ports in the dominions of the Emperor ol China than those of Ca ton, Amov, Foo-chow-foo, Ningpo. and Shanghae, or than may be in the occupation of her Majesty's forces; and her Majesty is pleased to order, that any of her subjects committing a breach or violation of thisdirection shall, upon conviction thereof in any of her Majesty's Courts of Record or Vice Admiralty, be, for every such offence, liable to a penalty not exceeding ?100, or to imprisonment, for a term not exceeding three months, at the discretion of the Court belore which the conviction shall take place." Commercial Sitmmaky.?1The only blight spot in the surrounding gloom is the measure about to be introduced to Parliament for admitting Canadian wheat and flour, and United States when1 and flour, by way of Canada,into this country,at a fixed nominal duty. Some doubts existed a short time back as to the sincerity ol the Government relative to this measure, but Lord Stanley has cleared away all mist on the subject, by stating emphatically that the Government accepts the interpretation put upon u:_ j -l_ l..-, ,i? f no Iir-Pintici! ?' 111" Jf-oi uy U|f TiivrrnorATfiirrai and Legislature el Canada. The bill paused by the Provincial Parliament ot Canada, imposing a duty of three shillings per quarter on Uni'ed States w hf-al going into Canada, only waits ihe receipt of some inlormation from Sir Cnarlps Bagot to receive the royal assent, and then a bill will be introduced into die British Parliament, virtually repealing, as far a a Canada and the United States are concerned, the Corn law of last year. This is regarded in England as a very important measure. It is so in reality. That it will give a (treat impetus to thp trade between Canada and the mother country,while it will benefit the States of the Union contiguous to Canada, seemsuntjuestionable. It in an excellent move n the right direction, and knocks down one of the nillara in the arch ot monoimly The only regret is, that the boon did not come sooner The hold which the principles of Free Trade has taken upon the pub he mind is evidenced by the fact that scarcely a voice has been raised against the pro|K>siiioii, while a year or two ago. the same proposition would have thrown the "country gentlemen" into a fever. The high protective party are hors de combat as regards numbers and argument,and tis not difficult to foresee from all that is passing around u?, that the doctrine avowed by Peel himself?buying in the cheapest ' market of the world and selling in the dearest, the very essence of free trade?will shortly be triumphant. But, as the adage has it, "while the grass grows the steed starves." Cspk nt Good Hopc.?Advices hive been received from the Cape down to the 17tli December ? ^ome rather important military movements hud taken ulace towards Golesbourg, and Colonel Hare is to take the comatad of 1200 man beyond ibe Orange river. This activity has been eaused by an offensive movement in Adam Kok's district of the Onqua country, and open preparations to attack Phili polis, independent of other proofs of open rebellion, supposed to he connected with the proceedings oi the Natal Boers. These unequivocal dsmonstrauons of the natives have fully convinced the governor of the necessity ot active measures, and troops are under orders to embark immediately. The 7th Dragoon Guardls, which has not been out of the United Kingdom for twenty-aeven years, and other regiments, are ordered to be despatched forthwith. Theatricals. Mr. Gr?gory, the recognised editor of the Sati rift, a scandalous Sunday paper, ii|)peared as a c?n diuate for histrionic honours at Oovent Garden on the 13ih ult., in the character of Hamlet. The debutant has acquired some repuls ion as an amateur imongsf the Shakt-pere.ina, a socieiv lor the perlormance ol the plays of England's b ird. Printed placard'', calling upon the public to resist the indtg nity oHered to them, and stating fully ihe head and roat of .Mr Gregory's offending, were copiously iistributed about London. The result was a lull attendance, and a scene oi indescribable contusion. The ap|a*arance of Hamlet was the signal for tin greatest uproar, loud and long continued Hartley, he stage manager, in ihe absence ol Bunn, who was ill at home, came forward to quiet the storm,bui nis efforts were fruitless. When he retired, the play proceeded, but in dumb show. Not a sentence ut- i tered by the new Hamlet could be heard, and at the ( )RK ] MORNING, MARCH 22, conclusion of the second act, the play was withdrawn, amidst i he cheers of the victors. The Iriends ol the condemned actor retaliated by rHu *ing to hear the piece that was subs'iiuied. Mr Gregory attribute*, in hi* paper, the opposition to a number of titled and other blacklegs, whose doings he has exposed, and he expresses his determination never to he until public opinion has pronounced upon his pretensions as an HC'or. A new tragedy, in three acts, called " A Hlot in the 'Scutcheon,"has been produced at Drury Lane. The incidents are few, hut ol a revolting character. Lord Tresham, a man nroud of his high and unspotted lineage, discovers that his young sister Mildred, for whose hand he had just sanctioned a noble suitor, receives a gallant in her chamber nightly. The incensed brother taxes Ins sister with her guilt, which she does not deny, and in the presence ol their kindred he denounces her shame essness. Lord Treshatn intercepts the midi ight visiter, whom he kills in a duel; notwithstanding he recognises in him the young Earl of Merton, who had got his consent to wed M'ldred. The guilty girl dies broken hearted, and her brother poisons himself out of remorse. The acting hv Pht'liw A rai,n ..n.1 Vl.yu scribed us excell-nt, but the piece will not retain I (**rmnn*-nt possession of the stage. A new tarce, in wh'ch Keeley is the hero, called " A Thumping Legacy," has been vety successful at the same h> u?e. The incidents are grotesque?the thumping legacy being a legacy at thumping?the entail of a family feud, of wruch the character personated by Kt-eley becomes the residuury Itgatee. Mucready produced " Much Ado about Nothing" with great effect on the 24ih for his benefit. Conius was revived on the same occasion with gr--at effect. But notwithstanding the number of Macready's Htaksperean revivals, he in losing money as manager, Hnd the season, there is reason to fear, will be brought to a premature close Covent Garden does not tare better. The only theatre in London which is pax ing well, is the English < >pera House, where Van Amburg, Carter, and Messrs June's company of eques rians, are huhly popular The ring is on the stage, and the only exceptionable part of he performance is the dramatic company of English actois The French company of the St. James's is drawinggood houses. Madame Albert isagrea1 favorite The Parisian piece, La Grace de Dieu, a drama of domestic interest, has been very successful. Fanny Elssler, who had been announced at Covent Garden, is to appear at the Italian Opera on the opening night, in La Tarentule i the statement that she had entered into an engagement with Mr. Bunn is contradicted by the solicitors of the charming danseuse. Staudigland Duprez are both underlined atCovent Garden, where they, will sing in English, versions of foreign operas. Miss Clara Novello is promised at Drury Lane this month. This accomplished vocalist has been a popular prima donna at the principal theatres in Italv since she last sang at concerts in this country : her debut on the English stage, therefore, raises expectation. It is stated, that the lessee of Covent garden theatre has brought an act on against Fanny El-sbr, for an alleged breach of an arrangement for secur ing her services to the theatre, and that the damages are laid at ?3000. The solicitors ot Mile- Elssler have written to the newspapers denying that any arrangement was made. Ma Rrafiam's Concert ? Braham, the Wellington of tenors, still pursues the?we cannot say " noiseless fenor of his way," for, though music is not noise, this great vocalist is still capable of making a noise in the world. He has recently made some noise in the new world, and now he has coine back to the old, where, lest the chantmgs which so pleased in days ol yore should be deemed out ot fashion amid the new lights of music, he will introduce a vauthful in his boh and pupil, Mr Charles Urahsm It this youth turn out a genuine " chip of the old block," the world will hail him as a treasure. At the Royal Liver, Mrs. Fitzwilliam and Mr. Buckstone have been starring it with great success in many of their favorite pieces. Last night, the lady took a benefit, and the house was crowded. Rubini seems to have been making a golden harvest at Betlin, where he has been playing at the opera-house, for the moderate consideration ol #8110 (?120) a night. In Paris theatricals there is more of expectation than performance. Pauline Garci?, as Ninetta, in the "Gazza l.adra," for the benefit of Tumburtnt, was exceedingly well received. At the Academic, nothing new except a dancer; a Dumilatre in Cento's and Elssler's parts. Drey shock, the new rival of Thalberg and Liszt, nun given a concert, in which he surpassed the expectations of his warmest admirers. He played his I "Absence," "Lea Adieux," <Scc., and concluded i with a splendid military rondi. Mrs.Chailes Kean has heen seized with an alarm- ' injc illness at Bath, which renders" her utterly unable 1 to fulfil her professional engagements. 1 Madame Vestris and Mr. Charles Mathews have j just concluded an engagement for twelve nights, at , the Edinburgh theatre. I Mrs. Wood, the Vocalist.?'This lady so well i known in the United Stares, has occupied mnch is- i tention lately, from the circumstance of her having embraced the K oman Catholic religion, with the intention of taking the veil. A Yorkshire newspa; er, published in the district where Mrs. Wood and her husband have lived of late years, statesthst thelady has had a leaning to Catholicism since 1836, when she first visited America with her present husband, arising out of the following circumstances:?In that year she gate her gratuitous services to a religious Catholic society in Boston, and afterwards she had a small testimonial presented to her, singularly and , beautifully % ritten 0.1 tinted paiwr.

In reply to certain insinuations as to the cau-e of i e ex'raordinary step she has taken, Mrs. Wood addressed the following letier to one of the local papers:?

The serration of Mr. and Mrs. s Wood was solely on the ground of the impossibility , of her being rvceived into the Catholic church with f out resolving on such separation, as that church t does not recognize the doctrine of divorce, and Mrs p Wood felt there could not be any compromise in natters that regarded eternity.
