TH ol. IX.?Ho. 1^3 ?Wkol? Ho. 3330. BY HARK DEN f CO.'S EXPRESS. TEN DAYS LATER FROM EUROPE. Deollne In Cotton?Dreadful Shipwrecks? Lou of tho Solway? ttlots In Ireland?Ad" Jo urn me nt of Parliament?Lord Aahbar> ton, &c. die. Ac. The new and beautiful Steamship Hibernia, Capt. Judkins, arrived at Boston on Thursday morning at five o'clock The Hibernia iB larger than the other ships of the Cunard line, and is probably more perfect in all her arrangements than any steamship which has yet crossed the Atlantic. She had rather a rough passage, but has made the trip with more than the average speed at this season of the year, aad has proved herself in every respect a first rate steamer. She made the last half of the voyage, previous to her arrival at Halifax, in four days, which is a pretty good evidence oi what she is capable of performing. We are much indebted to Harnden & Co. for th? very early delivery of our foreign files. Their messenger reached our office before five o'clock yesterday morning. The Hibernia spoke the Britannia, from Boston, at two o'clock Thursday morning. The Hibernia brought out nearly two millions and a half of dollars in gold, and a full freight. The Great Western, the popular and highly successful steamer, has every berth engaged for this country. She was to have left on the 29th ult., instead of the 22d as was reported. The Hibernia came full of passengers?over a hunJ A ureU) The Virginian hence had arrived at Liverpool. The West India steamer Solway has been totally lost with thirty three lives. The Roscius was off Liverpool on the 18th. The steam ship Columbia went from Halifax to Liverpool in eleven days. Capt. Duncan of the steam ship Solway, was formerly chief officer of the British Queen, and latterly, in the same capacity on board the Acadia. Disturbances have taken place in some parts of Ireland, especially in the neighborhood of Monaghan, with a view to obtain a reduction of rent. The lower class of the people, having assembled themselves in numbers, committed numerous outrages; the stewards of the different estates being in general the object of their furious indignation. A voicano of a novel kind has broken out in the neighborhood of Kceingshatte, in Silesia For twenty years a slow fire,which occasioned no alarm, has burnt in the coal mines of that district; but re cently it has shot out immense volumes of flames, which threaten destruction to the surrounding buildings, and to the vast lorests of the country. A steam engine has been established, for the purpose oi discharging water into the minee;but this machine had been in action at the last accounts for 72 hours without producing any effect. The Duke de Nemours narrowly escaped the same fate which befell the Duke of Orleans in July list. Driving in a low carriage, drawn by four horses, one of the leaders fell, which caused the carriage to be overturned, but the Duke previously jumped out, and fortunately escaped unhurt. Letters from Madrid of the 11th inst., have been rece-.ved in the city by express, which state that on the preceding evening, at ? o'clock, P. M., after a violent debate, the bpamsh Ministry was beaten by the coalition upon the question of the validity of the election from Badajoz; the numbers were 80 against 65. Ireland appears to be in a state of teverish excitement on account of the continued, and in some cases of successful resistance of the poor rates. In Waterford county the resistance was so formidable that the 10th Hussars at Clonmel were ordered out and in proceeding to Waterford were hissed at, and in one instance pelted with stones. Spain is spoken of as comparatively tranquil, though there are still untamed spirits in the province of Catalonia. 1 he people of Barcelona appear to have given uprevolution as a bad job, which costs a great deal more than it is worth. Queen Isabella of Spain has resolved that another year shall not pass over without taking to herself a husband. In trying on the magnificent dress which she wore on the 3d uit. for the first time, she said, "This is the last year in which I shall go alone to the Cortes. The cause of temperance in Ireland, instead of dying away, had received a new impetus by several eminent catholic clergymen publicly devoting themselves to the assistance of Father Matthew. Accounts from Algiers, in the French papers, lead us to believe that Abdel Kadir is still secure in his mountain and desert fastnesses?" unconquered and unconquerable." A large quantity of foreign wheat has been released free of duty at Dublin, for the purpose of being manufactured into flour and biscuits for the use of thr emigrant vessels now taking in passengers for North America. A suspension bridge, surpassing all that has been seen, is to be constructed at Vienna, says a letter from that city, across the Danube. It will be 1,470 English feet in length, with only one pier in the river. The grand invention, the jErial carriage, spoken of by us a week or two since, is said to have been realized. London is all agog to witness the flight of this modern Pegasus, which will take its departure for Paris shortly. We have accounts of the shocks of the late earthquakes over nearly the whole of the continent of Europe, in Africa, and in Asia Minor. In Palestine, as usual, the shocks were quite severe. Another extensive failure had occurred in the West end bill discounting circles in London?that of ' Mr. G.bbs, late partner in the celebrated house of Hnyward and Gibbs. The liabilities are stated at ?200,000. The number of Royal infants is still but two. The Queen takes daily exercise in the open air with Princs Albert. Her accouchment is looked for daily. The Northern Star recommends " that the Chartists throughout the length and breadth of the land should sufler their beards to grow, an^t that each of them thould wear moustaches!" Another of the gang known as " Rebecca and her daughters" in South Wales, had been seized and bound over for trial, and it was believed it would lead to the dispersion of the whole gang. Several of the most extensive landlords in Ireland had reduced their rents 20 per cent, of course much ro mc BBiiBiacuon 01 tenants. c-ari ue urpy nao, however, given practical evidence ot his high tory principles by raising his rents in the same proportion. The troubles in the Kirk of Scotland still continued. The Lords of the Council and Session adhered to the decision of ihe Lord Ordinary, which set aside the iniquitous sentence of deposition pronounced by the General Assembly upon the seven brethren ot Strabogie. The Dublin Evening Mail states that no official notification whatever of her Majesty's intended visit to Ireland has been made to any of the heads of departments. Countess Plater, highly distinguished during the late Polish war ot Independence, died lately at Posen. Lord Brougham had made some important motions in Parliament relative to the Slave Trade. E NE K Accounts to the 11th of January, from the Cape ot Good Hope, notice the march of government troops beyond the Orange River, and the expectation that the Boers would all disperse, after leading to an outlay ol ?80,000. Abundant rain had fallen. A large meeting was held on the 12th instant, in Exeter Hall, London, for the purpose of adopting measures urgently required by the recent aggression of the French on Tatrito, and forsecuring the general interest of the British mission in the islands o! the South Pacific. A young man named John Ellis had been re manaeu ai uociiesier, tor using mreais againsi rtie Queen and Sir Robert Peel, in a public barroom. During the steeple-chase at Swindon a few days since, the celebrated horse Dragsman dropped down dead. In England,Ireland, and Scotland, the wheat is looking remarkably well, with every prospect of an abundant harvest. An instalment of a million and a quarter oi dollars Irom the Chinese, arrived at London on the 16th ult. O'Connell's son and Torn Steele are coming over to America to agitate. There has been another decline in cotton. It fell off one eighth on the poorer and middling classes oi American. It is aaid that Edward Everett does not accept the mission to China. There was no material change in the state of Trade. Parliament adjourned for the Easter holidays, to meet again on the 24th. The sudden death ot the Earl of Hopedon had caused great sensation in the fashionable circles. Real estate in Manchester has depreciated nearly fifty per cent within the year past. , The Duke of Sussex is recovering from hip late severe attack of erysipelas. The shocks of an earthquake in Holland were so severe as to shake down chimneys. The marriage of the Princess Augusta is to take place immediately after the Queen's recovery. One of the most important items of news which we find in these papers, is the discussion of a new commercial treaty between England and the United States, on the principle of a tariff reciprocity. The following article is from the Liverpool Albion RKCimocirT Treaty with America?When any object which we have in view cannot be fully obtained, it Is good policy to direct our exertions to the attainment ol that which is apparently practicable. Applying this principle to the question ol the Cern Laws, we may state that, however desirable may be the total repeal of those laws, mere is lime prospect 01 mai onj-ci Demg attained during the preseDt session ot Parliament, nor is there much chance of corn being admitted at a fined dutyduring the existence of the present Ministry. Yet there is a mode by which thesa views may be nearly, though not com pletely, accomplished, even during the present year. The object of both these measures is the regular and sufficient supply ofgiain at moderate prices, and the in* creased employment ot our manufacturing population. Both these objects may, we think, be obtained by the following proposition We make treaties with Portugal, admitting their winas on favorahle duties, on condition of their udmitting our woollens on favorable duties. Thit is the principle of reciprocity, a wise and just principle, We are also negoc.iating with the Brazils on the principle of giving and receiving equivalent advantages. We would suggest, then, that we should make a proposi ion to the United States on a similar principle, the principle of re ciprocity. Let us propose to America to admit their grain at a certain rate of duty, on condition ot their admitting our manufactures at asimilar rate ofduties. Let this rate for argument sake, be fixed at -20 per cent ad valorem; wt admitting their grain at an advalorem duty of 20 percent and they, in return, admitting our manutac-ures at 20 pri cent; the value of grain to tie taken at the shipping port and proved to the satisfaction ol our consul there. Sup pose, for example's sake, the value of the grain at the ship ping port to be 5s per bushel, then tha duty of 20 per cem would be Is per bushel, which would be the duty payabli on its arrival in England. Then the duty en our menu facturas, say on a piece of cloth, value here 10s, would, al 20 per cent, ha liable to a duty on its arrival in America of 2s per piece. This would be fair reciprocity, and would leap over the thousand difficulties which have impeded the settlement of this question, it would probably satisfy the moderate men ol all parties, though it would displease the extreme partisans of each party. The ad vantages would be immense if this measure could be accomplished; the demand from manufactures would be greatly increased; the employment oi the workmen,consequently much extend.d; wages would, of necessity, advance; and the kingdom would receive a regular sup. ply of grain at modelaie prices. The landed men need not have much apprehensiou, for they would have a pro tectiveduty oi '20 per cent, and the coniumption of grain would be augmented by tne more extended em plo> men) of the manulaciuring population. The variable amount of the duty is an objection, but something must be conceded for the lake ot obtaining admission of our manufac tures on favorable terms. The proposal to the United States would enlist all their agricultural men in favor oi the measure, and would induce them to compel Congress to altar their present tariff, and probably compel the Exe cutive to accept our proposal The same prnpasal might be made to the continental agricultural nations, whos* interest would most probably, lead them to accept out terms. Should any one nation accept our offer, otheri would probably follow, as one country would becomt jealous of any other enjoying advantages from which it self was excluded No one kingdom could complain, il the same terms were offered to each. The growing additional population of the kingdom requires some additional employment for the working classes, and this measure does seem to point out the mode by which this desirable object may be obtained, and witb little, if any, injury to the landed men, because they would escape those increasingly heavy poor rates which must fall upon the land in proportion as the want of em ployment compels the working classes to have recourse to parochial relief. Shoi.ld America reject our offer, tb? nation will bear the evils of the present corn-laws with more patience; but the influence of the landed man ii Congress is too powerful to admit of much doubt thai they would obtain a majority in favor of this proposal. Edward Everett and the Treaty.?The Lore Mayorot London entertained Sir Koberl Peel ant a distinguished party, composed of the principa members of the Cabinet and their ladies, at the Mtin aion-house, on the 5 h instant. Complimentary toasti and speeches were given and made by the host anti guests. Mr. Everett returned thanks for" I'he American Minister and the United States." He said: "One ot the most important duties which he had to perform, was to cherish by every means in his power a good understanding and kind feelings between England and America, (cheers .) 18 months Hgo the prospect seemed a dark and anxious one, and he had looked orward with no veryagreeable feelings to what might be the issue. For the change which had taken place, they owed much to the conciliatory policy ot her Majesty's government [hear, hear,] in taking an important step towards the adjustment of mat ters in discussion between the two countries; and he was desirous, on thia occasion, to make his acknowledgments to an old friend of his then present (Lord Ashburton) lor the aevicea which he had performed towards bringing about this most desirable result (cheers ) He would not detain them long; but he must be permitted to say?with the strongest feeling as an American, in favor of the side of his own couutry in this controversy?that it seemed to him that the adjustment brought about by the noble lord was equally honorable and advan tageous to aithtr country, (i heers). He thanked them for the kind leeling which they had manifested towards himsell and his country, and could as sure them that he believed the most important part ol tits duty was to do all he could lot the preservation ot a good understanding between the two countries of Great Britain and America." (Cheers.) On the 12ih inst. a similar entertainment was given to the principal number? ol the late government and their ladies^^ Loss or the flPfeiY Mail Stkamfr.?Another vessel belonging.. me unfortunate Royal Mail Steain Packet Company has been lost?the Solway, which sailed from Southampton on the 1st instant, bound for the West Indies. She was wrecked on a reel, oft the island ofSisarga, about twenty miles from the west sf Corunnn, having called at the lot ter place to receive and deliver mails The melancholy accident occurred at midnight on the 7th, alter she had been a week at twa. This is the third 9ieamer which has been lost by the company in a (ew months The Medina, it will be remembered, was wrecked off Turk's Head, and, more recently the Isis off Bermuda. Alter having left Corunna about a couple of hours, all the passengers and most of the crew (with the exception of those on duty) being in their berths asleep and unconscious of'then danger, the vessel suddenly struck on a rocky shoal, called the Baldayo, within a mile and a half from the coasi; and notwithstanding the utmost exertions were used by Capt. Lhincan.lthe officers and crew, the unfottunate vessel sunk within twenty minutes, n thirteen lathoms. By the order of Capt. Duncai. (who was lost), the pinnace was first got into the water, and as many as it could conveniently holo were lowered into it, but the trail bark was not destined to reach the shore. From some cause unexplained, it was cui*)ized, and every soul on board w r( IEW YORK. SATURDAY perished. The first paddle-boat was then lowered and into that also as many crowded as pomiblj could, and notwithstanding there was no ear tons sist them, it managed to reach the shore in safely bj paddling, See. It is supposed that many went dowr with the vessel, there being no time to launch th? other boat that is kept on the paddle wheel, to save those unfortunate beings left on board. Those who were thus mercifully saved, escapet of course, with no clothes whatever but those thej stood in, and some were almost in a stare of nudity Immediately 011 the vessel striking slie pitched con> siderablv head foremost, and as soon as the cold wn ter reached the boilers thev collapsed and blew up It is sup|iosed that many of our fellow creatures pe. rished by this mishap, and that it also furthered the more speedy destruction of the vessel. The size ol the paddle boats?boats kept expressly for cases ol accident?may be judged from the fact that 52 hu . man beings escaped in one of them, and so close wai it to the water's edge, that it was a mercy it reach' ed the shore in safety Nothing but constant baling and good management kept her afloat. The whole 1 of the mails are, of course, lost, and, in fact, every thing belonging to the vessel. Sunk as she is in 11 fathoms. and most likelv so iinirh iniureil hu sink. ing so hard as she did on the shoal, it is not at al probable the vessel will ever be raised The loss tc the company, which lias been truly unforunate since its establishment, will no doubt be great; bul the distressing loss ot life entailed in this instance will be a bitter remembrance to those who have thus so suddenly been bereft of their friends and re lations. We subjoin a list of the persons lost:? It is a singular fact that Mr. Edward Dicker, the surgeon, was also wrecked in the Medina, ana afwards in the Isis^ and now the poor fellow, in tne prime of life, is, without warning, and in an awful manner, called to his account by being wrecked in this ill fated vessel. It is also a singular circumstance that Captain Duncan, immediately he heard of Mr Dicker's appointment to the Solway, remarked, but jesting, that if harm came to him 01 his ship, he should attribute it to Mr. Dicker's presence, that gentleman having met tfith such unfortnnate results in his previous voyages. The Solway was a Scotch-built boat, und this was her fourth voyage. She was a remarkably last sailing fine vessel, and had just undergone considerable repairs.

Rnglish Opinions on American Affairs.?TR following is from the London Standard:? COLONKL Yocmi and Al.bant r.kpudiation?It woull ' appear that the repudiation doctrine has anything bu seen iu limits The State of New York begins to tail 1 about something of the kind, although, of coune, as yet i ii but vaguely hinted at; however, we have seen somi private letters from parties well calculated to knew wha | is going on with these honest gentry, and, from the tenoi of these, should not be surprised at a more open avowa ' of repudiation in course of another year. The reason o ' the present tear of repudiation in New York arises in i ' communication from the Secretary of State to the Chair r man of the Judiciary Committee iu the Senate of that Stati in which this worthy disciple of the swindling school un bltishinglv declares that a large amount ol the bouds is ' sued by the State, she is under neither moral nor reli 1 gious obligations to pay, and the reason assigned for sucl ' dishonest views is that the acts of the legislature autho rizing them were passed by a simple majority of votes u 1 the two houses, instead of a two-thirds majority, whicl he contends to have been necessary under the constitu ! tion. It is therefore quite evident that this declaration o 1 the Secretary is nothing short of an open avowal on hi ' part of the unprincipled repudiation doctrine, and svi 1 have little douht but that it is thrown out with a view ti ' being acted on as soon as circumstances will admit O course the papers denounce the matter with their usua I seeming integrity, hut it is very easy, even in their re | marks, to detect a spirit no* unfavoi aide to the infamy | and which will, no doubt, be differently expressed whei the public of these 9tates shall have lost all sense of ho uesty and upright dealing. ' Thi: Mkrckr an* other Casks?A remarkable tris oi a person nttmtu Mercer, lor murder and crime of th moat hideously revolting description, is progressing iiea Philadelphia. We have looked thruugh the proceeding , of this rase with horror and disgust, and much ns we ma he impressed with a conviction of the laxity ot our owi | lawa in allowing the escape of a murderer under plea o insanity, yet we see a tnuah worse statu of things in Amt> rica. There is an evident impression that this man Met cer will be acquitted, thus adding another instance to th< list in which the law is null and void. He is to get oft oi the plea of insanity. There have been, then, in Amoiica within a very short period, the cases of Colt, fortLe mur der of Adams, the murderer of Mary Rogers not yet djs covered, the murder of a person named Corns, atil shrouded in mystery, and this Heherton case; in alio which every sense of law and justice has been ihockec and no reparation made. Every one oggrirved in such matters *eema totakethem into hianwn hands forredress and the result of this system is daily becoming more ap parent. Thecase of Corlis'murder, to1 which wa have allu eil, is remarkable. He is lepresented as the keepei of a fashionable bowling saloon, and was shot in the pub lie street. Eiuhtrn Vrsski.sTotam.y Lost.?The late north easterly winds have, we regret to say, been productive ot the moat disastrous shipwrecks along different par's of the coast, though happily unattended with loss of lite, nrisine from ilie uloeriiu -IK ciencyofthe coastguard service and their boatmen During the la-t three weeks upwards of eighteen vessels are known to have been wrecked. OvtRi.and Mail,?The following notice, which involves a considerable alteration respecting the let ters to China, itec., by this mail, has been issued by the Post naster General"Letters for China, the Australian settlements, New Zealand, the Mauritius or other places beyond the territoriSaoi the East India Company, intended to be sent by the Overland Mail through India, must be addressed to the care of correspondents in that country, as it istindersiood that, under recent regulations, they will otherwise he detained at Bombay fo r payment of the transit and ship letter postage due to the Indian Post ot lice lor their conveyance to their destination. It is not necessary that letters lor places within the tern tories ol the East India Company, forwarded hv the Indian Mail, should be addressed to correspondent m India, provision being made lor payment of the Indian postage above alluded to in those settlements." Amongst the novelties of the day may be noticed the speedy departure ot Mr O'Connell's eldrstson for the United States, accompanied by Mr Thomas Steele, to organise an agitation there for the more l<eedy repeal ol the union?an Irish method, truly, going ao lar abroad to carry a project at home. Pecuniary, rather than patriotic motives, it is unchan lably assumed, influence the mission. JBut Jonathan is in very bad condition now lor being plucked. Atthe sire is not very popular in the great republic, it CHn hardly be expected that the son will be, and he will act cautiously in not going too lar south?the more bracing atmosehere of the north will better agree with hi* nerves. )RK I MORNING, MAY 6, 1843 , Another monomaniac hasfound the way to Bucki ingharn Palace, from a distance. A woman was discovered on the 13th, crouched up under a tree, in r ina wood at Wulton-tipon Thames, unable to speak r a word of English.

She was daughter of Mrs. Young, an actress of > some repute, and was born on the fiih of December, ? 1817. and was, therefore, in her 26 h year. Early '? in life she was initiated into the theatrical art, and was engaged at Sadler's-wells. the Olvnuuc.

At '? the early aire of sixteen she formed a mutr'tioniul '? alliance with Mr. Honey, who w?.s only two \ ears " her senior. Mrs. Honey was engaged at the New Strand Theatre, in 1833, where she first attracted nublic notice in the character of Liltas, in Leman ltede's drama of the Loves of the Angels, when un * der the management of Mrs. Waylett. Her next re5 move was to the Adelphi, where she became highly popular in the burletta of Cupid, with the late Mr. John Keeve.

IVaktfitld Journal. Parliament. J Parliament adjourned for the Easter holydays. and met again on the 24th. With the exception of f the United States, the debates during the last forl night have only possessed a domestic interest. One b of the most important measures of the session?the ' Government scheme for the education of young [ persons in factories and elsewhere, which was un| folded six weeks ago in a comprehensive statement by Sir James Graham, has experienced, since the introduction of the bill into the House ot Commons, a hurricane of opposition trom alll classes of dissenters? trom every one, in short, who differs from tl the Church of England. e The Ashburtoo Treaty is ended so far as the House r of Lords is concerned. Mr. Hume has threatened, 1 and no doubt will keep his promise, to inflict his tevn diousness on the House of Commons when it meets ,l after the holidays, in connection with the same subi ject. Thete discussions are not, perhaps, without * utility, but they are certainly without any practical b object, and become wearisome from their sameness. > The treaty has been carried, is approved of by the intelligent and patriotic on both sides of the water, and cannot be disturbed by the most polished j figures of rhetoric, or the most vituperative maler dictions. I In the House of Lords on the 11th, Lord Ashbur, ton addressed the House in the following terms:? ] , My Lords,?Belore your lordehi|? proceed to the business of the day, 1 beg to lake the earliest oppor1 tiinitv of making my acknowledgments to yout 1 lordships, and of expressing my deep sense of the 1 honor conferred on me by the resolution which, by I the votes and proceedings of your lordships'house, 1 I I ..k ? J ? J--- I--. "I? > i uusritc n as imasru imi rriuny inbi v ricur, nrar ) That resolution, gratifying and highly grateful to 1 mvsell personally, is rendered in my mind, of mfi- ' nitely areater value by the opinions expressed by J your lordships, nainelv, the expression ot the satisfaction ol your lordships " at the restoration of a ' i good understanding with the United States, which ( it is alike the duty and the interest of both countries I to maintain unbroken." An expression so full ot ' wisdom and sound |>o|icy, delivered by such a body as the peers of this kingdom, cannot fail to have the J most valuable eflect in producing ihat conciliation, 1 i which is in itself sufficient to secure that end so ' much desired by your lordships. The overwhelm- " iug importance, in my mind, of the settlement of ' those unfortunate differences which had gradually 1 grown up between tfie twocountries, was my great ' inducement to undertake the task? (Hear)? and 1 perhaps caused me not sufficiently to estimate my a own deficiency for its execution. I have had, how ' ever, the good fortune to have the performance of " i's duties approved by my Sovereign?by her Majea '' ty's ministets, and 1 have now to add the almost I1 unprecedented honor of the approbation of yom 1 lordships' house, and it is quite impossible forme to * -xpress to your lordships how deeply sensible I am f that honor. My lords, tit countries under free government, such us we have the happiness to live un- i der, and America, it is natural Ihat questions of this u importance should be discussed with great freedom. I mo umi iihh dki hm 0mm witn r<l 10 ib* 8 'reaty which it lias been my lot to execute.? I Although I trust that the conditions are such as -| arc likely to he conducive to the future inainteii f nice of |>eace, and etleciiiHlly, and entirely, and u fairly to nettle the question in dispute, 1 must freely i insure your lordnhipn that the n ere minute quen- a tion of more or le-s of boundary, which han been the i| uibject of so mnch discusmon.both here and on the i other side of the water, weighed in my estimation ^ very little in comparison to the larger question of ,i iEKA I the settlement which it would be satisfactory to make in the estimation of honorable minds in both countries; and 1 should contend that the settlement is one which is founded on honorable terms, and which is likelv to produce peace. It is not my intention to go at all into any ipiesiion connected with this transaction, but I will only seam expre-s to your lordships the deep sense which 1 entertain ot the tumor of that approbation which you have heen pleased tw express, which is the highest reward that I can receive for the humble efforts which I made ill what I conceived to he a Rood cause, (''hei rs ) The Dukkof Wki-linhton?I am sure the house will have heard ihe speech ol ihe uoble lord with satisfaction I consider it my duty to move that tinwords expressed by the nobli- lord on this occasion be entered on the jonrnalsol the house. (Cheers ) The motion was agreed to. The most important speech during 'he session, by any member unconnected with the government,was made jast week by Mr. Charles Buller, in introducing Ins plan for a complete system ot colonization Mr. Buller is master of the subject. He accompanied Lord Durham will be remembered, and the splendid report which that nobleman gave to Parliament on bis return, owed many of its most important and useful suggestions to Mr Boiler's sagacity On the night in question be occupied the iiouse three hours, in a s|>eec!i which lills nine co liimns of the morning papers. Lord Munley endeavored to throw a wet blanket on the debate by chanting the praises of ihe Colonial office, but he did not succeed in drawing at'cniiou from the panacea for curing the ills under which an old and cir cumscribed and densely populated country like Kngland is laboring?too much strength, too much blood and sinews, the best remedy for which is a comprehensive system of emigration, carried out in a liberal and enlightened spirit. The advantages are lelt to he incalculable, and a coup-de main by the government, at no distant dny, is inevitable. The Slave Trade?Lord Brougham, in the Ms,,,*., i .... .u.. m.u ?i 1 u... bill for the better prevention ot the nlnve traue. His first object was to decide by a declaratory act, that a British subject residing abroad, bat not within the bounds ot a British settlement, buying slaves and transporting them to his plantation, was guilty ot felony. The next object was to legislate respecting lite transmission by legal instruments ot toreign slave plantations ; and the third, to prohibit the buying and selling of slaves by joint stock companies established here for the carrying on projects abroad. He wished also to insure a better mode of trial where slave trading practices were imputed to British subjects, and to impose upon parties engaged in the African trade some species of sttnerintendance which would confine them to their legitimate traffic. Alter some observations upon the apparent inconsistencies of the American government, which, having declared the tlave trade piracy, yet complained ot any proffered assistance on the part of a friendly power in carrying into effect its own law, the noble lord moved that the bill be read a first time. lu Lord Brougham's concluding observations Lord Campbell entirely concurred, but Lord Ashburton, although admitting that the extension of such opinions was extremely desirable, trusted that the country would not be undeistood us intending to enlorce tliem contrary to the law of nations. Lord Campbell contended that the slave trade had been universally recognized as piracy, but was corrected by Lord Aberdeen, who quoted France as a country whose acquiescence in this doctrine was still to be obtained. Lord Denman, although he wasconvinced that the more the subject was considered, the more widely would his opinion be agreed in, that the pirate and the slave trader were by natural law constituted public enemies, felt the necessity of obtaining the cooperation of other countries too strongly to recommend anv departure from the letter of our treaties. He vindicated the decision of the American indites on the subject; but thought that i*. was only by a general combination of the naval powers that the abolition of the slave trade cotlld be effected. The hill was then read a first time. Franre. The opening of the whole line of the Paris and Rouen railroad to the public, says tfie Presse, is positively tixed for May 3. Viscount Dubouchage presented on the 3d instant, a petition to the Chamber of Peers, signed by several persons at Hourges, complaining that the Infante Don Carlos was detained as a stale prisoner in that town, and praying that he might be set at liberty to change his residence, or leave the country Private lettsrasiate that Don Carlos is detained at Bourge" against his will, however it may suit the French Ministry to deny the fact. He cannot leave the country without passports, which the government refuse, and he cannot go a certain distance from Hourges without being exposed to the interference of the police. The disorders that have broken out in St Domin go have caused some alarm in France, independently of financial considerations. The Minister of Marine had forwarded orders to the Maralitne Prefect of Brest, to despatch two men-of-war to Hayti, to protect the French residents. The Totilotinais of the fiih instant, states that the Emperor of Morocco had given satisfaction to the UHited Slates for the nsult offered to their Consul by the Governor of Tangier. The latter had been superseded in hispost.and the flag of the Union having been hoisted on the Consular house, was saluted by the batteries of the place. Spain. The Spanish Cortes were opened on the 3d with great pomp and formality. A detHchmentof cavalry and six carriages accompanied the Regent and the young Queen from the palace. The Regent read the royal s|ieech. After alluding to the zeal of the magistracy, and the penury of the treasury, tlw S|>ecch states that'.he late insurrection had paralysed the economical sciemies of the government, and created an additional debt, in consequence of the necessity of raising a large military force It was generally reported in Madrid, that the present Ministers had placed \heir resignation at the disposal of the Regent, to deprive ihe enemies of the Constitution in the new G*rtes ot any pretence for attacking it and his Govcrnn^nt through them, but that "nothing was yet settled ai to who will stay in, or who will relieve them." S. Calatrava, the Finance Ministei has issued a decree, the chief object of which is li revive the credit of Spain, by providing for the poictual payment of the interest on the New Three. ()er Cent Stock The decree devotes to the purpose, 1rst,the whole proceeds of the quicksilver of the mines of Almaden and Almaduegos; secondly, twenty miliums of reals on the Treasury of the island ol <'U>a; and thirdly, four millions of reals on the department of the Cruzada. A fourth article declares that th? Government will augment their appropriations, if the Cortes shall approve of the capitalization of the interest on the Four and Five |>er Gents, as) is proposd to them. Portugal. Accounts from Portugal io the 3d inst., state that the three months which the charter requires the Cortes to sit having expired yesterday, a royal de- I cree was published extending the session tor a month further. It is not probable that the prorogation will be much longer postponed. Yet ol ihe new financial measures not one has yet been touched, though their ?xtent and importance would require fall three months to discuss them alone. The Deputies are ilready betray ing signs of weanness, frequently tail ng to make a house. The Deputies have been occupied with a bill for educing the number ol administrative districts and lioceses throughout the kingdom. The first part of his project will involve a saving of exi?endilure Fhe second will renderexistmg funds more available or the maintenance of the church in circumstances >f becoming dignity. The project has likewise a loliucal object, viz , to get rid of ihe inconvenience >!a nomioition ol anvpoition et the hierarchy. Lisbon new* to the 10th instant has been received, troiight by the Lady Mary Wood steamer. The inal answer of the British government respecting he tariff convention was expected with some inxiety at Lisbon. It was known that among the urther offers proposed on the part of the Portuguese o our government, in place ol the ultimaiiini sent rum England, a reduction ol duties to the amount ol wo- lit the was proposed on brass manufactured ;oods. The British merchants at O|>orio had peliloned auainst breaking oil the negotiations on light grounds. The Douro Win' Company hill had assed the Peers wiihout alteration, but it was ex cit d that the royal sanction would be deterred ntil the final result ol the tariff negotiation was nown.
