In Portugal-Mote Difficulties In Npaln?Right of Visit?Relat Ions between America and t* ngland?American Stocks?-Important Commercial Intelligence?State of the markets, dec. dec dec The Royal Mail Steamship Britannia arrived at Boston on Wednesday morning, bringing Liverpool dates to the 4th, and London to the evening of the 3d. The news, as a general thing, is important, particularly in relation to the right of visit assumed by England. The Britannia met large quantities of ice. The Overland Mail, due the first of the month, had not arrived. Lord Palmerston brought forward his motion relative to the Ashburton Treaty in the House of Com iiiumq, da wc Mairu yesieruay morning. xuc debate which followed between the mover and Sir Robert Peel, seems to have had very little effect, except to display the forensic abilities of the two great leaden. In the British House cf Lords, the Earl of Wicklow gave notice, on the part of Lord Brougham that on the 4th inst, he would move a vote of thanks to Lord Ashburton, for concluding the recent treaty with America. In the House of Commons, April 3, Sir R. Peel stated in reply to a question from Lord J. Russell, that he had received despatches from Mr. Fox,with a copy of the President's Message, and the communication of Mr. Webster, and that he would lay them before the House The Government had not given any instructions to Lord Ashburton that modified Lord Aberdeen's despatch of December, 1841?Ay its principles they were determined to adhere. In France, the power of M- Guizot seems to be now perfectly consolidated, and a better feeling exists between that country and England than has of late years been manifest. The French Government continue to send out ships to the Marquesas. Five are at this time loading at different ports. The Great Western arrived at Liverpool on the 1st inst. Business during the last fortnight has sensibly improved. The cotton market has been extremely buoyant, with improving prices. The sales for the week, ending 31st March, were 56,000 bags?nearly 10,000 per day. On Saturday, however, the demand sensibly decreased, in consequence of the accounts brought by the Great Western respecting the prolific magnitude of the last crop. On that day, and yesterday, (Monday,) the salea were about 8,000 bags collectively, prices having receded nearly an eighth of a farthing per pound A better feeling, however, pervades the manufacturing and the commercial classes than has been apparent for a long time. An opinion is prevalent that our dark night of embarrassment will be succeeded by a hne dawn and a brilliant noon day. The Britannia brings out over a million dollars in pecie. Six millions of dollars of the Chinese Ransom had atrived in England up to the time of the sailing of the Britannia. Intelligence from Florence announces the death of M'me Villeneuve, sister of the Qunen of Sweden, and of the wife of Joseph Bonaparte, after a painful illness of several months. The Gazette of Cracow, announces the death on the 14th ult. at the age of 80 years, of Count Stanislas Wodziski, who has filled the poet of President of the Republic during fifteen years.

At the last accountsfrom Oporto, still further disturbances had taken place on account of the unwillingness of the people to pay their taxes. The rioters were permitted to parade the streets without molestation from the authorities. Letters received at Constantinople mention the invasion of a neutral territory bordering on the Euphratesby the Pasha of Bagdad; but the particular object of that invasion is not stated. A disease somewhat resembling influenza, was at the last accounts, making sad havoc among the cattle ?and sheep in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire Tlve bankruptcy of the Greek government, its inability to pay even the interest on its loans, was beginning to excite the serious attention of the other Europe an governments. A tragical occurrence ocsurred on the 19th near the town of Tuam in Ireland, which resulted in the death of a Mr. Ward, from a pistol fired by bis own wile. .Jealousy was the moving cau-e, and the affair can 9ed a good deal of excitement from the fact that tlvj parties occupied highly respectable stations in society. A Irate letter from Barcelona announces the discovery of another conspiracy amongst the troops of the garrison of Montiurich, and that twelve non commissioned officers had been arrested and sent to M idrid for high treason. The trials ( the wreckers on the French coast, "grho pillaged the wrecks of the Reliance and Conqueror, had resulted in their being sent to the gallies. Commodore Porter, the United States Minister at Constantinople, died there on the 3d inst. The great Council of Argovia had a most exciting discussion on the subject of the suppressed convents, but adjourned without deciding upon any measures for relief. The nuptial ceremonies between the noble heir to the dukedom of Hamilton and the Princess Mary of Baden, were celebrated on the I81I1, with the greatest pomp and splendor. Some sailors at Sunderland recently had a strike for higher wages, and paraded the streets to the number of 300. They did not accompl sh their object, as other sailors were found to tHke their places One of the London papers asserts that nothing wu lie more negraneo marquis preBS in inaia?except the press in the United States! Illicit distillation in greatly on the increase in Ireland since the act of last session, laying an additional duty on whiskey. Tin Thames Tunnel was opened on Saturday, the 25th ult. It has cost nearly three quarters of a million sterling. Forkioji PunucATtoNS.?We notice nothing of any interest to the American public. Honraor CcMMosa, April 8.?Lord J. Kussell said, that having attended to the recent accounts Ironi America, it appears that the American government had put a diff rent construction upon the Asliburton treaty, from that put upon it by this country, partie nlarly with respect to the right of search. Now he wished to"know from the right honorable baronet at the head of the government, first, whether he was ready to communicate to the bouse the despatches of Lord Aberdeen having reference to the 8th article of the treaty of Washington subsequent to the treaty E NE itself,the substance of which despatch had been com- I inunicatad bv the President of the United States tn I ihe Congress; and if there was any intention on his (Sir R. Peel's) part to lay upon the table of the house the instructions given to Lord Ashburton and the correspondence which had taken place with reference to that article 1 Sir R. Peel said, that Mr. Fox's despatches had only reached him a very short time betore, which might, perhaps, account for his not being able to give as satisfaciory an answer to the noble lord'aquestion as might be wished. Mr. Kox had sent home a des patch with the message of the President alluded to, and the communicationsfrom Mr Webster He(8ir R. Peel) had no objections to lav on the lable ot the nouse Mr. Fox's despatch and the other documents at the earliest possible period, as well, also, as the instructions sent out by Lord Aberdeen to Mr. Fox, commenting on the message of the President. No instructions had been given to Lord Ashburton which could in any way warrant his consenting to any modification of the despatch of Lord Aberdeen of Dec., 1841. Left sitting. Tbeatt or Washiwqtow?On the 22d ult. the debate, which begun on theQIit, and published in the New York Herald of yesterday waa resumed by Sir Charles Navier, who dilated upon several topics touched upon by the preceding speakers. To the 8th article of the treaty he particularly objected, that in pledging America to keep a squadron of eighty guns on the coast of Africa, it did not specify the size of the guns ; four schooners, with twenty swivel.guus each, would form a compliance with the letter of the treaty. And as the right of search had not heen distinctly recognised, he feared that, were we engaged in a war with another power, the first thing that America would do, if we should press our own seamen, would be to declare war against this countrv. He successively enlarged on the concessions ol| the M idawaska set tlements, ?lhe boundary of the 8t. John, and House's Point. He characterised LonS Asbburton's settlement as a most unwise and impolitic measure. Mr. D'Iibaeli next addressed the House, expressing >.urprise that Sir Charles Napier had said nothing in favor of the argument of Lord Palmerston's speech, as, iu the course ol a morning visit that day to the noble lord, two of the gallant officer's horses had knocked down and rode over an old woman- The speaker, after maintniniaff some of th? nnnitinna xuhir.h Sir Rnhprt PpaI tonk plained the nature of the " red-line map," about which 10 much had been aaid, having seen it at Paris. It was a map eighteen inches square, by D'Anville, one of the smallest maps that D'Anville had ever drawn. It was not a map of Canada, or ol the disputed territory, but a map of North America ; and, consequently, this broad red line ? (A member opposite?" Strong")?well, this strong red line would itself cover, and diJ cover, a portion ot the map equal to the disputed territory. (Laughter and cheers.) See what a small space Maine itself would oc. cupy on a map of North America authteen inches square. That was the map by D'Anville ; out there was In Eng land another map, which he supposed was the map yesterday referred to by the light honorable baronet at the head of the Government, o( greater dimensions, but which was also marked with a strong red line, giving the limits according to the American claim.? That was the map by Mitchell; a map which was recogaized as of authority, having been brought from the collection of his late majesty King George the Third, who, it was well known, had taken a great personal interest in the affairs of Canada and of North America generally? Now, it might be a question whether either of those maps had guided the negotiations : but there could be no doubt which of these two traps was the authoritative one? which of the maps had been used by the American negotiators in 1792. He would refer to a private letter from Dr. Frank ffn to Mr. Livingstone. In 1792, not quoted by Mr. Sparks, printed in a work published twenty-five years ego by Mr. Temple, Dr. Franklin's grandson,which contained the whole of Dr. Franklin's correspondence while he was in Paris. Dr. Franklin, in this letter says? " I am perfectly clear in my recollection tha* the map we used in the negotiations wa - the one drawn by Mr. Mitchell about twenty years ago ; and that we relied much on the opinion of Mr. Adams, who was conoerned in the former discussion as to this treaty." Here was a clear proof that the map used by the negotiators at that time was not D'Anville's scrnbbv eighteen inch attair. but Mr. Mitch ell's. He defended Mr. Webster on the score of not having produced the " red line" map. As to the imputations which had been thrown out upon the American minister in this matter?as to the non-production of this map and so forth?they were absurd, it was understood that when Lord Ashburton was sent out on a special mission to settle this question, it was to settle the question on the prin ciples of compromise and convention : and Mr. Webster very rightly considered that it would be most unwise to produce any of the old elements of misconception between the two countries?any of the old documents on either side In the course of some further observations, he ridiculed Lord Palmerston's ho ist that he had maintained peace for tm years ; when he had been on the v?*rge of war with Russia, France, and America, and aotualiy at war in the Levant, Afghanistan, and China. Mr. Hawks rose to address the House, when he was interrupt d by the Speaker, whose attention had been called to the fact that there were net forty members present, when the House adjourned. The next day, Mr. Hdmi asked Lord Palmorston whether he had any intention of renewing the debate, which had terminated so disgracefully to that House? (Ministerial cheers.) Lord PALMnnsTOtv replied, "I beg to say that I do not intend to give any furtnor notice of motion on the subject. (Cheers on the Ministerial side.) My object was to have the question discussed : ind I am quite satisfied with thst which has .taken place. (Renewed cheers. A short pausd.) By way of explanation, I may add, that after the statement of the right honorable baronet at the head of the Government, that he could not without prejudice to the puhlid service grant the papera for which 1 had moved, I could not have pressed my motion to a division." Mt Humi: said, " then, sir, I now beg to give notice, that on Friday,the 31st inst., I shall submit the following resolution to the house:?' That the House, looking to the long-protracted negotiations between the Government of this country and that of the United States ol North America as to the settlement of the North western boundary, and taking into consideration the state ol our foreign relations in October, 1841. is of opinion, that the treaty of Washington is alike hanorable and advantageous to each of the high contracting parties ; and that the thanks of this House are due to the ministers who advised, as well as to the Right Honorable Lord A?hburton, who had negotiated and concluded that treaty."' (This announcement was received with loud cheers from both sides of the House.) British Holders of American Stock ?The following is a reply which Mr. Everett made to a depuration which waited on him with the memorial of the holders of American stocks in this country The reply does credit to the head and the heart of the American Minister, at the Court of St. James's; it is justly admired. The memorial bore the signatures of 900 holders of the state Stocks of America :? " Mr. Scholefit'ld and Gentlemen?In compliance with the request contained in the memorial which you have now presented to me, I will avail myself ot the first opportunity of transmitting it to the President of the United States. To avoid misconception, it is propertbat 1 should hserve, that, inasmuch as the general government is not a party to the contracts of the separate states, the subject of the memorial does not fall directly within the Pre-i dent's province, and that 1 am myself acting unofficially in forwarding it to him. I do it, however, with cheerfulness, < out of respect to the members of this distinguished deputation. Nor am I less under the influence of the deepest sympathy with that numerous class wham you represent, who have suffered severely, some of them I fear ruinously, from the failure (temporary, 1 trust) of a portion of|the American states to pay the interest of their public debt. These feelings, 1 am sure, will be shared by the President. "1 concur with yon in protesting against the doctrine that a State, which has pledged its faith and resources, cau release itsell from the obligation, however burden some, in any way but that of honorable payment. Fatal delusions, in times of great distress, occasionally come over the minds of communities as well as individuals; but I rejnice in the beli< f that the number is exceedingly small of those who have, in any form, advanced the idea of what has been called 'repudiation* I am convinced that those States, which unhappily have tailed to make provision lor the interest due on thair bonds, have done so under the heavy pressure of .adverse circumstances and not wi'h the purpose of giving a legislative sanction to a doctrince so pernicious, tin worthy, and immoral. "The memorialists are pleased to give me credit lor sympathy with their sufferings There is, perhaps, roper-' son, not himself directly a sufferer, who hashed so much reason as myself to feel deeply all the evil effects?the *a orifice not m?rely of material prosperity, but what if of infinitely greater conaequence, of public honor?reaulting from tliia dieaatroua lailure.

The Stales themselves, as Governments, have experienced the greatest embarrassments from the sudden destruction ot credit (extending alike to those States which have and which have not honorably and promptly met their obligations); that credit on which alone, in some instances, they depended for tho resources necessary to complete and render productive their public works. The goneral Government of the United States, alter having paid off a public daht of more than iOO.OOO 000 of dollars, has found itself unable to negotiate a trifling loan in this great metropolis ol the financial world, whose superabundant capital, but for the default of some ot the States, would have continued to be for those States themselves, and for individuals, a vait gold minelof unexhausted capacity In addition to these public embarrassments, private fortunes almost without number have been destroyed in the general wreck ol which the failure of the States, as cause or effect, is one of the principal elements. I doubt if, in the history of the world, in so short a period, such a transitiou has been made from a state of high prosperity to ane of general distress, as in the United States within the last six years. And yet, gentlemen, the elasticity and power of recovery in the country are great beyond the conception of those who do not know it from personal observation. Even within this disastrous period, to which I have alluded, a private commercial debt to this country, estimated at twenty-five millions of pounds sterling, has been paid by the American merchants, with as little loss to the creditors as would attend the collection of an qual amount of domestic debt, in thisor any other country. ' ' But I will not detain you, gentlemen, bv enlarging on these topic*. The subject, I need not tell you, i?"one on which, in all respects, it is proper that 1 should speak with reserve.

"EDWARD EVERETT. I " 46 Oresvcnor Place, March 31." The Health of Her Majesty.?Her Majesty continues to be in the enjoyment of excellent health; and notwithstanding the proximity of the event which is looked forward to with so much interest, her Majesty and Prince Albert are daily to be seen walking in the gardens of Buckingham Palace as early us eight o'clock in the morning. The Prince of Wales and the Princess Royal are also in the enjoyment of robust health, but during the prevalence of the pressnt cold easterly winds, their royal highnesses are not allowed to go out, and the picturecilery is appropriated to them, as the place of their infantine exercises and sports, instead of the open grounds of the palace. Their royal highnesses have to be dressed and en parade every morning by nine. Both her Majesty and the Prince are remarkable for their early hours. Canada Corn Trade.?In the House of Commons on tlie23dult., Mr. Ewart asked, whether, under the intended measure, foreign corn, imported from any part of the world into Canadc. could, on paying the three shilling duty, be exported thence to this country free, like United States corn I Mr. Gladstone supposed that Mr Ewart made the com 1111mj iinainivc wi uuimiug inai mr ittw rcK?iros IUreign produce imported intocoloniea and re-exported hither rr colonial produce ; which is not the case. But raw materials, brought into the colonies, manufactured there and then imported into this country, were considered as articles of colonial produce, inasmuch as all manufactured articles were considered as the produce of the countries where they were manufactured. Mr. Ewari wished to know whether flour was considered as a manufactured article 1? Mr. Gladstone said that it was In reply to Lord John Russell, Mr. Gladstone said that it *as the intention of Government to introduce a bill on the subject after Easter. AdvicesiromConstantinople, ofthe 22d February, announce the detection of a. conspiracy in Belgrade, having for its object the assassination of Prince Alexander, the new ruler of Servia, and his ministers The conspirators who have been seized, assert that they have acted at the direct instigation of the Russian Consul; and the Princess Lubitzka, the mother of Prince Michael, is also accused of being implicated. The Government of Servia has, it is added, removed from Belgrave to Cracowitz. The Comet.?After much research, Dr. Forster succeeded in detecting the nucleus of the comet, Ht Bruges, on the Light of the 29ih ult.; it had the appearance of a small star of the fourth or fifth magni tude, and was situated in the right line, which joins (Etna) Eridani, with the Stella Mira Ceti. The London Peace Sciety has summoned a convention of delegates from the various Peace Societies, to assemble in London on the 22u of June next. The sittings of the convention are expected to continue three days, and will be immediately followed by the Anti-Slavery Convention. Joseph Sturge, it seems, from the address issued, is the promoter of fhia mppfinxr In the Prerogative Court a few days back, three codocilsto the will of the late Marquis of Hertford, one of them leaving $100,000 United States Bank stock to Mr. Wilson Crooker, were declared invalid. The council of the Anti-Corn Law League have given the manager of Drury Lane Theatre ?500 for the use of the theatre during the five Wednesdays in Lent, making a rent of ?100 lor each night. The attendance at the theatre on the nights of these meetings has been immense, and the speeches in favor of free trade very effective. The Chancellor of the Exchequer has been threatened with assassination by a person named John Dillon, late an officer in the navy. Dillon, it appears. has a claim upon the governnv nt far a large amount, in consequence of the seizure of a vessel engaged in smuggling, some years back, but has never been able to procure a settlement, and, as a peremptory mode of bringing the matter to a close, he expressed bis intention of shooting the Chancellor. A Bologna journal relates, that on the 28th ult , the planet Venus was distinctly visible to the naked eye at mid day, and as it was surrounded by an aureole, many |iersons imagined it was a comet. A prize-fight, for ?50 a side, which took place near Gravesend, on Tuesday last, between Sambo Sutton and Rungaree, ended in the defeat of the latter.

On Tuesday se'niRht, several hundreds of the unemployed poor at Glasgow had a procession bearing a black flag, whilst several carried boards, bearing inscriptions, one of which was, " Bread or Death " A letter from Rome of the 28th ult states that a monk, of Venetian origin, named Abbo, had been sentenced to death for murder, and that the Tope, being appealed toby the culprit, had ordered justice to take its course.

The s'range and even formidable insurrection in South Wales, called Rebecca and her daughters, is treated rather contemptuously by the London press, but the Welsh papers regularly report the progress ol the a flair. It seems that the disturbances havp grown so lormidable, that the government have deemed it necessary to increase at ill lurther the military force.

Three threatening notices have been received at Narberth workhouse, to the eftect that unless the paupers have better food given to them. Rebecca will attack the house. A mob assembled a lew days since, and attacked the Prince's gate. Rebecca, the commander, who has now two officers celled " Nell" and "Susan," would seem to emulate the late Captain Rock of the sister island,?for, besides the other threatening notices which we have mentioned, one has just been received in this town, breathing destruciion to all turnpike-gates on the parochial road and one by Water street, on the old Newcastle Emylyn road, is doomed to destruc tion. What is most remarkable in this insurrection ary movement,lorit is an insurrectionary movement, though at present perhaps not very formidable,is that j neither the civil, nor the military, nor the yeomanry, t have been able to apprehend a single offender. f Thirty veteran pensioners went down IromCarmar- | then ln % ftlwr1. I--. ..?I - -f I lancers are daily expected on the spot. Judging, however, from the past abortive attempts to suppress the jawlet-s movements, people are not very sanguine in their expectations 01 a restoration of the supremacy of the law. Indeed, the Captain Rocklike proceedings in Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire, seem, from all we can learn, to assume daily a more threatening complexion. A correspondent states that at first the war was directed against the .oil gates only, but that now the workhouses are to be levelled also,and that Rebecca is a man oi much influence?some say a country magistrate. Another correspondent informs us that the individual who personates Rebecca is frequency replaced by another, and is not the same on the night of each outrage. It is not the least remarkable circumstance in this extraordinary movement, that when the troops uppear in one part of the country, Rebecca invariably appears in another, perhaps lourteen or fifteen miles distant. Junction of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.? A London paper, in an article, showing the practicability of a ship canal across the Isthumusot Panama, at a cost oi a million and u half sterling, proceeds to ask the question?Would it pay! which it thus answers: Ten percent interest on a million and a half would a i.ount to ?150,000 per annum. Add to this ?25,000 lor annual expenses on the canal??175,000. The saving to the merchants and ship-owners of Europe and America trading to the west coast of | America, to Australasia, Oceania,and Eastern Asia, would be very great. A month at the least would be gained on the voyage; diminishing to that extent the wages of mariners, the expense of provisions,the interest on capital. The tear and wear of the ships would be I?*8s; the expense of insurance would be diminished All these advantages would be cheaply purchased by canal dues of 10s per ton. At this rate the passage of 350,000 tons of shipping along the canal annually would yield the sum of ?175,000. Railways ?From the annual report of the Board of Trade on railways, it appears that during the last five months of 1840 there were 28 accidents, from which there were 22 deaths, and upwards of 131 cases of personal injury, while during the whole of 18-11 there were 29 accidents, occasioning 2-1 deaths, and 71 cases of iiiiury.and in 1842 only 10 accidents with 5 deaths, and 14 cases of per-onal injury, and this has been out of above 13,000,000 persons carried; ana ot inose Kiuea only one has occuirea to passengers "riding in a train and observing the common degree of caution."

Death of Dr Southey.?We regret to announce thp death of Robert Southey, on Tuesday, (March 21), at his residence in Keswick. For this event his f riends must have been long prepared. For the last three years he had been in a state of mental darknec-s, and a twelvemonth ago he was not able to recognise those who had been his companions from his youth. Scarcely could his wife console herself with the poor hope that ha recognised even her. Excess of mental labor in every department of literature?poetry, history, biography, criticism, and philosophy, continued from year to year, without cessation?bowed his strong spirit at last, and ob scared the genius which had so long cast a glory on the literature of the ag?. In early life, when his powerful and brilliant imagination was pluming its wing for the d iring flights that it afterwards took, he formed the most exalted notions of tht perfectability of man, indulged in the most generous aspirations for the welfare and improvement of the human race, and seriously thought, with ether kindred spirits, of founding a colony in the back woods of America, whete guilt and Borrow should be unknown, and perfect equality, freedom, and happinessshould reign for ever. A betier knowledge of the world soon dissipated these Utopian reveries. Asa poet, with an exuberance of imagination seldom equalled, and a mastery of versification never surpassed?and as a prose writer, at once elegant and forcible?his name will endure as long as the language in which he wrote. The "wild and wondrous tale" of " Thalaba," and the almost equally wondrous "Curse of Kehama.'are the poetical pieces on which his fame will principally rest. As a prose writer he was a perfect model of style?easy but not feeble?stately but not cumbrous?and learned but not pedantic. Besides innumerable articles in the Quarterly Revieiv, to which he was a principal contributor, we believe, for nearlv thirty years, his chief prose works are a "Life of Nelson." "The Book of the Church," " A History of the Peninsular War," " Letters from Spain and Portugal," nr.<1... r>.J ? " A History of Brazil," "Lives ol the Rritish Admirals," &c He also wrote biographies of Kirk White and Chatterton, and edited their works, besides editing the collections both of the principal and minor Enelish poets. He was appointed poetlaureate in 1812. He was twice married?first in very early lile, and again but a few years before the mournful overclouding of his intellect, to Miss Caroline Bowles, a lady whose name as a poet?as, had been long and favorably known to the public, and who in the last sad blank years of his lite watched over him with the tenderest solicitude, anrf did all that the most devoted affection could do to lighten the heavy load of his existence. Dr. Southey was a gentlemen in the best sense of the word. His house at the Lakes was ever open to all who presented themselves with suitable introduction, and there are few personsof any distinction who passed through that picturesque region who have not partaken of his hospitality. Insanity?Within the Inst twenty years the cases of the above dreadful malady have more than tripled. The total number of lunatics and idiots in England is as follows;?Lunatics, 6,806: idiots, 5,841 ; together, 12 547 ; but, allowing tor defective returns, the number mav be taken at 14,(KM".?an average of one to every thousand of the population In Wales, lunatics, 133 ; idiots,763 ; total, 896 ; and adding for parishes that have made no returns, they may be set down at a thousand?a pro|>ortion ofone to eight hundred.

Mr. O'Connell says, " I saw with great surprise, in the last Pilot, a paragraph which you certainly took from some other newspaper, headed 'O'Connell anu Dickens,' and purporting to be a quotation from an alleged letter of mine to the editor of a Maryland newspaper, published at Baltimore, and called The Hibernian Advocate. The thing is, from beginning to end, a gross lie. I never wrote a letter to that newspaper, nor am I in the habit of corresponding wiih the editors of American papers. I have seen indeed, with great contempt, hut without much surprise, in several American newspapers, letters deliberately published under my signature, given to the American public as genuine documents?all, of course, being forgeries, but nub lished by the editors as if perfectly genuine." Alivr Fome severe remarks about what he calls the "outrageous rascality" of a portion of the United States' press, Mr. O'Connell, speaking of Dickens, savs, " Perhaps, it is right that I should add, that tew people admire more the writings of Dickens, or read them with a deeper interest ihan I do. I am greatly pleased with his'American Notes.' They give me, I think, a clearer idea of everyday life in America, than I ever entertained before. And his chap'er containing the advertisements respecting negro slavery, is more calculated to augment the fixed detestation of slavery, than the most brillinnt declamation or the most splendid eloquence That chapter shows out the hideous features of the system far better than any dissertation on its evils could possibly produce them?odious and disgusting to the public eye."

The two leading female stars who seem to eclipse all others and attract all eyes in England, are Mesd.les. Elssler, and Dumilatre. OnSaiurdav evening, March 25, Donizetti's Btlisario was performed ai the Italian Opera House for the debut of Fig. Fornasari, the celebrated bass singer, who has now arrived for the first time in England. This opera was produced lite re some four no u ru oorn Kul ttulU Hsii ? i jvnion^u, um ihuc BUftTOT. jio rccrin rrurption, however, shows that its original jiertormHnce must have been of a very inferior order?lor it has been now received with great lavor. The Standaid discourses as follows:? Between the second and third acts of the opera the pretty little divertissement of ISAurtrre was played, and a sunny spot was it for the eye to dwell upon; DumilHtre is a wonderlul creature?perfection its-lf as reg-trds form, and the visible incarnation of poetry and grace. Dumilatre floats on the music as if the wavesof sound were commissioned to waft her when and where she lists. Acapti vating gentleness characterises all she does. So lightly does she traverse the stage, it is almost impossible to divest oneself of the belief in her spiritual essence. The charm of Dumilatre's dancmg consists in its ineffable grace; everything she undertakes she does without effort; all is spontaneous, flowing, and descriptive. In those free hounding passages which Cerito introduced, she is the type of fairy locomotion; there is a delicate langour in her strength which belongs only to a spiritual nature. Although she does wonderful physical things, there is no apparent bodily exertion: herart conceals ail effort; she st ems animated solely by the impulses of her benign and exuberan t spirits Then came the diverliteement of Une Sonet de Carnival, wh'ch gives occasion for a variety of oh ligato dances, just as the maitrt de ballet thinks fit. The incomparable Fanny Elssler danced a pat de deux with the light-heeled Sylvain, and twinkled so many steps with her feet as to make one look twice to see whether nature had'nt furnished her with a triple pair. Then came a triad of azure ladies?the pretty Camille being pre-eminent in skill and grace ?who executed sundry evolutions with their legs, discoursing all torts of euphuistic capers, and pampering the eye with devices of lovely groupings, such that a sculptor would pine to p?r|>etuate in mnrble. Anon bounds on Fanny Elssler a second 'line, uirwru ill n iniiimiy jnuivri, wiiii iiri e^unir hat set jauntily on her head, her tails of braided hair streaming gracefully down her back, and lo r feet hidden in vermilion Doots, armed with clanking heels, which chime merrily with the measures of ( the orchestra The arch, pert, saucy Cnvoviennt follows, and who is there who does not think Fanny's smile of assurance the most engaging in the world?her pretty impertinence a virtue?her lace a page of music!

It hasalways appeared to usthat the Chancellor of the Exchequer treated the holders of these instruments most iniproyerly ; their claims ought to have been sati'-Hed in the last seas on of Parliament, and it la to thu last degree unjust to withhold any portun of their claims now. Wa believe that portion so rejec-ed does not exceed ?6000, and the real owner of ihem had no mora reason to susp-ct traud than Bny hanler would have on receiving a bill.

It is taking exactly the same ground of repudiation as that assumed hy the only state of the Ameiican Republic w hich has mani'estrd a disposition to repudiate, viz: (As unauthorised or fraudulent act of on agent. The conduct of tl at State has been so reprobated in America as to make all who counselled repudiation ashamed for having done so. We give the Chancellor of the Exchequer notice that his conduct on this occasion may hereafter be pleaded in the United States as a precedent ; and that he may thereby endanger large sums of British propetty now invested iu the securities of that country.
