The old Hero of the Thames, in the kiuduet* ol hishe&it, has resolved to gratily the wishes of muny who live in the bustle of receptions and enteriainmint ot the dikUnguished, by visiting ^ when he has tinisVcd the important business which called hint to the eastern States, and ihe rtview of i the Connecticut militia and volunteer companies, i whoso martial immortality now been acntcvea. He may be heir on or about Thuisday next, and in the mean lime the recently appointed committees, who once allowed him to slip through their fingers, are meeting in solemn council, to prepare every thing lor the occasion hut that which is the all-ess-ntial, for " ready money is Aladdin's lamp." The Common Council will doubtless vote him the use of (he Governor's room, in which they will make ?f hirn a raree show for the amusement of the gaping idlers, but not a "rap" will be appropriated lor i cither brandy cocktails, segars, extra dinners, or plebeian " drinks." When President Tyler visited ihis city, the economical corporation not only took care that he fared sumptuously, but they led others and called them his suite, gave dinners to hundreds of hungry hangers-on, and pufled away all care ihemselves lor the amount of the bill, in the smoke thirty-seven dozen ol the best segars, which 'Mild undoubtedly keep a pretty considerable '"r o'er their heads"; but when an old soldier man, whose services the nation is ready in pays them a Hying visit, he is to be treated linn loafers whose services it would be diffi. ; :< -cover. President Tyler, three Secreta , nid one poet lauriet, in the person of his > .ul boy, whose presence was necessary in the train, are ingeniously, by a species ol legerdemain, multiplied into twenty-eight persons, and hence the first item ot the bill which the city officers paid at one of our hoteis, reads thus:? President and mite consisting of 38 persons, $'J per day for three days, $169 Now, deducting three Secretaries and one private Secretary, and 24 remain; if, therefore, an actual President is equal to 24 Secretaries of" State, of War, or of the Treasury, we seriously ask the Corporation how many a President's successor is equal to! And as Dick Johnson will admit of no denial, President he must be, and should be treated accordingly at the rate which this mathematical problem would establish when it has been solved by the city fathers. ! But we will read further from the bill of particu- I lars to which we have referred:? 132 dinners, $6 each, including wine, $660 Not only are five persons magnified to 28, but 132 j others are conjured into existence, and dined and i wined at $5 a head; and like Banquo's kingly issue, though the line does not stretch out to the crack ef doom, they " show the eyes and grieve the heart" i of the tax payers. The better part, however, is yet j to come:? s 11? bottles of wine at $2, $226 31 11 brandy, $1 50, 46 60 lemonade, 11 00 37 dozen segars, a 3 shillings. 13 88 As the President and his suite were provided for \ at $2 per day, andfthe 132 dinners were commuted s for at $5 each, including their wine, these additional items must necessarily be the result of a cozy private jollification of those who were excluded from the a dinner table, or perhaps?but no, we will not draw t the curtain. These items follow:? e 32 extra breakfasts, (32 00 Postage, porterage, he., 39 60 Drink, breakage, he., 19 62 The 113 bottles of wine for the more dainty, 31 bot. ' ties of brandy for the "smashers," $11 woith of lemonade for the teetotallers, or for intermixture with the brandy, and .57 dozen cigars, at a cost of near $300, is a lair sample ol a corporate " free and easy." 1 That a large hem for " breakage" should follow, is ' by no means surprising, for as some staid old Alder- ' man, unexpectedly overtaken on such a joyous occasion, tried to sing, "We wont go home till morn- i ing," and threw a becoming and suitable determin- i ation int? his actions, " breakages" would neces. i sarily occur, and if so, they must be paid tor. The " drinks," however, alter all these items, puzzle us. it may be that porters became necessary to enable the " carousers" to go home when morning did arrive, as they had determined in poetic measure not ( to go home before, and an item lor such service would Uvor this presumption, and "let's take a drink all round," would be natural under such circumstances. The 3 extra breakfaste were doubtIcbs for seme of tie "codfish aristocracy," who took pot luck early to avoid the common rabble. If, then, such liberality on the part of the Corporation signalized them so recently, and all their ex penditures attendant on the reception ot the Presi dent cannot be looked for in a tavern bill, why should Dick Johnson, who is old in his country's service, be treated merely to empty show and parade"! If they will not treat him to segars by the dozen, for heaven's sake permit him to "pufi his pipe's ambrosial gales," and give the old hero a cold cut and a cocktail. ornard Steam Ships.?The new steamer building for this line of packets will be ready to take her ution as a regular boat early in the spring, under ^mana ui v^api. i\yri<r, huw in me ni duiu, who v? i:! be succeeded ;n that ship, alter another voyage, by Captain Shannon, formerly cf the CoIt'm! _ The other boats will remain under the r midland of their present gentlemanly commands , until further notice from this quarter. In .iking of these beautiful steamers, we cannot forget Mr Heatley, the polite steward of the Caledonia, the favorite in the line, and soperfecta master of hie profession that some of our most experienced can profit by taking a few lessons from him. The most magnificent sbip that ever floated would not become popular unless her officers made her so; consequently nothing is so important in equipping the Atlantic steamers, where competition runs high, aslgentlemnnly officers in every department. The ' Cunard line of steamshi|? are nearly perfect, so far as this necessary feature is concerned. Although there are instances of preference, as in the individual named above, there is not an unpopular man holding any important station on board. We trust the line of French steamers will be equally as fortunate in the selections made for their government and control. Dreadful Explosion.?A powder mill was blown up at High Falls, about seven miles from Cattskill, on Tuesday afternoon about three o'clock. Therw were six persons in the building at the time of the explosion, all of whom were blown to atoms! Some thie< hundred kegs of powder are said to have been in the mill when the accident occurred. The foreman was indisposed, and the person having charge of the packing and drying house is supposed to have been intoxicated. The report of the explosion ext iied conciderable alarm at Cattekill, many persons t?kmg it tor an earthquake A similar accident occurred hi this same place three or four years ago, when lour persons were killed.

The suavity of manuer ol the various candidates lor office, was truly ludicrous and amusing. The feeling character of their enquiries after the health of the delegates, and th? lr wives and children, was followed with still more endearing protestations of regard and favors mtended when alluding to their own humble pretensions to the office they were desirous ol obtaining. Little knots of politicians ol ihe small beer and brandy and water order, were jeen assembling about old Tammaay at dusk, ind long ere the hour of the meeting of .he Convention, the vicinity was peopled with candidates and their friends, on the sharp look out for every straggling delegate, who lad not been previously sounded. At about eight o'clock, the " Pewter Mug," " Widow Lynch's," "Old Joe Murphy's," "Little Tammany," "The Hole inthe|Wall," and other piaces of resort, began io swarm wiiu ine oveillow ?! patriotism, rum and gin cocktails, and all wa.j excitement awaiting the result of the first ballot of the delegates Tor the office of Sheriff- Nine o'clock came, and still no result. The consequence was thit considerable cursing and swearing, and grumblings, like distant thunder, was heard among those whose patience was not of Job-like character; but time soon brought the tidings of " a ballot," "a ballot," and all rushed to hear the result. The " Pewter" had been selected as the headquarters of JoVn J. Westervelt, one of the candidates. "Widow Welch's" opposite, by Harry Atwood and his friends, while John Emmans, mare cunning, and in order to cover more ground by his influence, changed his position, as the battle raged, from " Little Tammany," to " Old Joe Murphy's" and "Tommy Wadlow's." Thus stationed, the leaders were all excitement, when down came the delegates and runnels with the following, as the result of the first ballot:? Henry Atwood, 24 John Emnui, 31 John J. Westervelt, 19 VVm.C. Seaman, 8 Allan M. SniSen, 6 Blank, 6 81 It thus appeared that all the delegates were present/and voted except three, the whole, number being 85; but there being no election, another ballot was called for, and continued as follows:?

There ] was little excitement, and the only result worthy of 1 note was that all the delegates chosen were considered to be friends of Henry Clay tor the Presidency. The Whigs will therefore nominate a clean Slay tickct lor the fall election. Paht.iamkntaky Proceedings in Canada.?It is imusing to see the dignity which the little body called the Parliament of the United Canadas, assumes. Their |urisdiction is limited to the local matters ol a miserable colony?a kind of parish , meeting business?for they have not power to pass I i an act of any importance without the permission of | J the English government, and yet they could not < assume more airs it they were a Congress of KiDgs J Their'lbedizened door-kt epere, whose insolence is i :o-equa! with the ludicrous self-importance oi the ' parliamentary members, are doubtless designed to 1 aid the phantasy with which their election seem* to 1 tiave possessed them, and all their proceedings par- | take of a mock-imitation?a sort of serious burlesgue ot the Imperial Parliament. By the latest ( reports which we have from the seat of govern- | ment, we learn that they have been engaged, in j imitation oi the British Parliament, whose jurisdiction encircles the globe, in a debate on the answer to the address from the throne,and a trial of strength of parties. The minority on the address in the legislative council, was precisely four, which makes the aflair still more ludicrous, while it exhibits the power of the government over the members. If they would dispense with high-sounding lly, and return to common sense legislation, ihey might deserve their per diem*, and benefit'their constituents. It is intimated that a dissolution of the Parliament is to be asked fcr, that an appeal may be made to. the people on the seat of government 1 question, but with the exception of those imme- 1 diately interested by their proximity to the congre- i gated wisdom, the people generally have more re- ' gard to the business transacted than to the place where it may be done. Nevertheless, this question threatens all sorts of evil influences on the peace of the Province, and it will be made a stalking horse for aspiring politicians, for some time to come. American Athenaeum in Paris.?The American residents in Paris have established a Library and Reading Room, uader the above name, for the purpose of affording an agreeable place of meeting for American citizens, and a place where they miy obtain publications relating to their native land. The Representative of the United States at the Court of France, with his consent, is to be the President of the Association, and the Consul of the United States nt Paris, the Vice President, besides whom there ire three directors. The President at the present :ime, is Henry Leyard, Esq. Charge d'Aflaire of the United States, and Vice Bresident, Lorenzo Drape, Esq. U. S. Consul at Paris. Authors and publishers a( valuable American works, by sending them to tins institution, may place them where they will become more extensively known abroad, and at the same time render a service to the residents or visitors in Paris, and particularly to the members of the Association. The Approaching Fair at Niblo's.?A hasty glance at the interior of the garden last night, satiefi*d us, that persons desirous, or intending to exhibit wares at the Fair, must move with haste to secure i good location. There are already sent in articles sufiicient t? fill all the tables in the grand saloon, ^auxhall harden has been taken by the Institute, ind is being prepared for the reception of the Agricultural Department. From the present ap|>earances, ind the exertion making to secure increased facilities to both exhibitors and visiters, we can safely l>redict that this Fair will be the most brilliant of all. It is ho|>ed, with some degree of ccrtainty, that Daniel Webster will deliver an address during the exhibition. We advise intending exhibitors to send in their wares to-day, Monday will be too late. Tuf. Maryland El*ction.?In Baltimore, four out of he fiTe members of the State House of Delegate are whigs. This is an unusual result* The wliigq are sanguine of carrying the State, which may give them another United States Senator.

Thuutxt day cooflKuced takiM coal, ftjflpgil^ the wat&, overhauling H'?' inaJhin- ry, ami making the necessary arrangements pnwto leaving hera on the Sunday following. After paying the customary honors to the Governor, by salutes from theshi|>, the Hon. Mr. Ci'SH<i?o and my sell came on shore to pay our personal respects, first to our Consul, Mr- Spiugue, who sfierwt>rds, accompanied us to the Governor, Sir Robert Thomas Wilson. We remained on shore and spent the alternoen with ourL'onsul, intending to return to the ship in the evening, and 1 had ordered my boat to be on shore for us by ((o'clock. At about 8 o'clock a message wus brought to me tbat the Missouri wc on fire; 1 repaired, without a moment's delay, to the only gate through jwhio.h I could pass the walls of the city, the others being, a<> is the cus. torn, closed at sunset. (I learned afterwards, however, that they were all thiown open, by direction of the Governor, the moment he heard of the tire on board the Missouri. 1 am pleased to mention here that every as. sistance was rendered to u? by that distinguished gentleman, as well as from Sir George Sartorius, commanding Her Britannic Majesty'*74, the Malabar, as will be seen ay a uuiiiiiiuiucaiioii irom ine io those gentlemen, a copy of .which, I have the honor herewith to enclose) My boat, fortunately, had been lent a* ?o?n a* the tire broke out, and I found her at or near the landing place ; when 1 arrived on hoard, which was in about twenty minutes, perhaps, from the momen* I received the startling intelligence, 1 found the flames raging with violence, and the officers and crew exerting themselves to the utmost to overcome them. Every person on board was so disposed of, or stationed in such a position, where he could do the most possible good. The powerful pumps on board had with Alacrity been rigged, with their hoses attached, and were in operation; those men who were not at the pumps, were employed in drawing and passing water in buckets, ami pouring it upon the flames. At a single glance, however, I discovered the prudence of flooding the after magazine, which was immediately done; the forward one having already very prudently been ordered to be flooded before I retched the ship; soon after I did so, two engines in large boats, well manned, came alongside. These were sent oft by Sir Robert Wilton, the Uaveenor, and by the able and energetic exertions of Sir George Sartorious and his officers, with the seamen from his ship, that at one time 1 was in hopes the devouring element was conquered; but alas! the flattering hope was soon dissipated by its breaking out again with increased violence; this only increased the energies and zealous efforts of the officers and crew of the Missouri, and our friendly auxiliaries, until they were driven lrom their ..fattens by the flames. When I saw thero wa? not a ray ol hope left to save that noble ship, 1 summoned a council of the officers, and those English officers who were near me, to ascertain their viewa, they quickly and unanimously decided, there was no hope left of saving the ship. I therefore gave the order for every person to quit her without delay, and without conlusien, for by this time there waa but very little space remaining for those on board to stand clear of the flames and smoke; the wind had increased, and the ship was in flames fore and aft; the crew immediately toon to the water, and received the ready assistance of boats, anticipating the exigency, from her Britannic Majesty's ship Malabar, and from the vessels in the harbor. Such was the state of the ship, whin the officers and crew were compelled to give her up, they saved nothing but what they stood in. After I had seen every person out of the shirt, I lowered myself down by a rope from the starboard wheel house, and was taken on board one of the boats in waiting. This occurred at htlfpast 11. The immense number of boats suirounding the burning ship at this time, were directed to pull out of the way as last as possible, fearing lest the magazines might not have been effectually flooded, an explosion might take place; and in that event the loss of life would have been great. Fowunately, however, the magazines did not explode until 3 o clock in the morning, so completely were they flood'J; and, as they exploded under water, the shock was not severely i?lt. At the polite invitation of Sir Oeorge Sartorius, the crew were sent on board his ship, the Malabar, and have remained there until to day. 1 have had them removed to a ship chartered for the purpose of conveying them and the otiicers to the United States. As the otiicers and crew have by this unfortunate and ui) looked lor event been rendered completely destitute of clothing, and every thing else, it has become absolutely necessary, for the preservation or their healths and comfort, to have them supplied immediately with comfortable wearing apparel, and I have directed the Purser to make the necessary purchases. The shin chartered is the Rsyah, of 600 tons, of Boston, and bound to that port, and will sail in eight days from :his date. I have had the crew employed, as well as lighters from the shore, in saving as much of the property is possible Iromthe wreck; the guns, anchors, chain ca. ?lt s, &c., will probably be recovered in time to send hem by the Rajeh, and all such ai tides as can be got rom the wreck before she sail*?the remainder will be lent to the United States by the next vessel which sails rom this pert. The machinery,boilers, and many valuable )aits will be recovered. After saving all that is valuable, ir can lie of any use whatever,I will request Mr. Sprague >ur Consul, to sell the remainder to the best advantage. Jiftil to day 1 have not been enabled to ascertain any saislactory evidence as to how the fire originated. The ollowing. Sir, is the testimony of three coal heavers, who were at work at the time in the engine room, and in the ficinity where the fire broke out I will state the cir-umstances (in their own words, taken down as they related them John Sutton states that " about ten minutea ta eight o'olock 1 went to the starboard engineer's store room,with a globe lantern, to get a pair of beam scales to weigh coal, vhich they were at that time taking in; in getting down the scales a wrench fell and broke a glass demijohn, containing spirits of turpentine; 1 wiped up as much as I could; I then went down to the cylender where they were at work to sec how much of the spirits had run down- I was on my way to the chief engineer to report the circumstances of breaking the demijcHin, and had just got on the berth deck ladder, and had not not reached the i>par deck, before I heard the cry of fire; I turned round immediately, and saw the flame bursting up through the gratings above the steam chr?t; I ran on deck, got a fire !>ucket, and endeavored to extinguish tne flame." sJWilliam J. Williams states?"1 was by the starting bars in the engine room, at work on the outside of the cylinder; we heard something dripping down, and we lung out to Sutton not to be dropping his water here (for here was usually a bucket of water kept in the stbre room above); he said you need not more would be coming down; we went on in our work, and the first thing 1 heard Clum sing out fire; at the same Lime I saw the flame burst up suddenly from the felt and canvass which was around the steam chest. I jumped with Clum to the steam chest and pipe, and endeavored to haul the felt off, which we were not able to do; 1 then went to work to try and extinguish it." Alfked Clum states?" 1 was at work putting on the cover of the cylinder; I saw something like water dripping down, and I sung Sutton, who was in the store room above; he said something which 1 did not understand; 1 had a light near me, and the water, as I supposed it to be, had nearly wet through the felt and canvaas which was around the steam chest, when it fell down upon my lamp, which was below; immediately the wbola felt and canvaas waa in a sheet ol flame, and, together ... .*U Uf!||l._. I ?? ),?,,] Iku r?l! >.n< MI.I.I succeed; the flame blazed up, and caught the boards which made the flooring of the store room immediately above; it was impoaiible to work about the packings of the cylinders with a lantern." There is no doubt on my mind,Sir, as to the correctness ol the above statements, and to that circumstance alone must we attribute the dreadful calamity which has over, whelmed my sell and officers with the deepest and most painful feelingr?the destruction of our noble ship. During the sad and melancholy scene 1 am hapny in having it in my power to beartf itimony of the zeal and firmness of all the officers; they evinced on this trying occasion a coolness which does them infinite credit, and is alike honorable to themselves and to the service The crew also did their duty like men, and deserve well of their country; there are three or four who were particularly distinguished (or their zealous efforts and good conduct, and ol whom 1 will speak again in another communication. I have the happineis to inform you that all the crew of the Missouri were saved without a single accident occur, ring to any of them. If, on a review ol all the circumstances connected with this disastrous occurrence, you, Sir,should deem it expedient that a Court ol Enquiry should be directed to investigate the facts of the case, I should be much gratifiej if such a course should be adopted. 1 have the honor to be, Most respectlully, Your very obedient servant, JOHN THOMAS NEWTON, Captain.

Carter vs. John Vhtdellani Charlri Pierton.?This was an action to recover damages for service* rendered by the plaintiff in the capacity of clerk to the defendants, who are dry goods merchants at No. Mi ami 64 Canal str?et. The plaintiff was eleven months in the employ of the defendants, and claims salary at the rate of $400 per year f?r the first six months, and lor the last 6 at the rate of $460 per year. The defendants oppose this claim,the rates being, as they allege, $350 and $400. They admit, that at these rates, there is a balance owing to the plaintiff for $36 37, which balance they had teudered, but was reluscd. The Jury, alter hearing much evidence as to what the plaintiff's services are worth, and the amount ol salary paid to clerks in similar establishments, returned a verdict tor the plaintiff", allowing him the balance admitted to be due by the defendant*.

Keturn of Queen Victoria- (Von-arrl val of the India Blall?More favorable account* of the MarketN -Disturbance* In 8j>aln> Italy and Turkey. .The regular, fast-sailing and favorite steam thip Great Western, Captain Hoskins, arrived this meriting at her berth, at half past 11 o'clock, making a passage, from dock to dock, in little l^ss than 14 days. The news is not of much importance. We make copious extracts from Wilmer and Smith's European Times. The Acadia took out very encouraging accounts respecting the transactions in Cotton. The market it will be remembered, between the interval of her departure and that of the previous packet was in a state of extreme buoyancy; but it was a little checked shortly before the Acadia sailed, and at the present moment speculators evince a disposition to draw in, while the demand from the trade is both uniform and large. The latter buy with confidence, and the state of the trade shows a healthy feeling of activity, greater than has been exhibited for a long a period. Freights to America by the transient ships have been low of lwte, though a slight improvement has been visible dnring the last few weeks. All the transient1 vessels to New Orleans, Boston and New York, have been chartered by good parties, but the good oflering have not been numerous. The packet ships to New York huve long acutely felt the effects tf the hostile tariff on the other side, and the absurd fiscal regulations on this side of the water for the virtual exclusion of grain and flour. The corn market has of late exhibited more firmness, and an advance of a penny to tenpence per bushel has taken place. A great breadth of wheat has been sown this year, and the harvest has been tolerably good; but as we do not raise enough for the support of our own population, and as an import becomes indispensable, the improved feeling of the market may be attribnted to that cause, combined with the yield of the new crop not being equal to expectation. It is very probable, therefore, that a considerable quantity of flour may find its way from Canada, through the act of last session. During the last few days an immense quantity of wheat and flour has been released from bond at the duty of fourteen shillings per quarter, which, at the present price of the market, would render the importation of Canadian Hour a profitable speculation. The weather continues very fiue: the finest, indeed, for the season, which has been known for years, and where the harvest has not been already gathered, the weather has materially aided the eperation. O'Connell, it will be seen, continues as active as ever, and we hear no talk af his speedy retirement to his mountain home at Derrynane, where, hitherto, at this season of the year, he has been more accustomed to the music of his beagles than to the vox pojtuli. All his energies appear to be absorbed in his present agiiation, which leaves him no time for rest or retirement. Whatever difference of opinion may exist about the man and his prospects ?and public opinion has a wide margin on the subject?all parties admire the hurculean energies which are brought into action by hands and shoulders nearly numbering seventy summers and winters?the allotted duration of human life. His speech at Connemara, on the 17th, is one of the most beautiful and eloquent he has delivered for many a day. "Who could have thought the old man had so much blood in himl" We are becoming (says Wilnier & Smith,) a nation of free traders in theory. An advocate of " protection" is not to be found amongst farmers or farmers' laborers. He is a rara avit, except amongst the squirearchy. The triumphs of Cobden and Bright have been brilliant of late. It has been a novelty for them during their excnrsions in the vgiiuuiiurtii uicmuia iu nicci wiin an opponent who would enter the lists ; and when he did present himself, he was pounded (oraterically speaking ) into mince-meat. The practical?the hustings part of the question?lias yet to come; and when the electors of England have an opportunity of recording their " sweet voices" on the subject, from tha1 hour monopoly will go to the wall?will receive its tjuictus. But as that period is hardly likely t? arrive before the meeting and separation of the next session oi Congress, every frieud of free trade in the United States, every advocate for reciprocity, ought to exert himself to secure the triumph of the great principle of international exchange, not less from regard to his own than to his country's interest. The principle on which all monopoly iB based ?compelling a nation to support a peculiar branch of trade which cannot support itself, by keeping all rivalry out of the field?is the maintenance of such branch of trade by the robbery of the rest of the community. The new government of Spain has issued its manifesto to the nation. It is a long document, beginning with the late melancholy events at Barcelona; and while professing to treat of the principle of representative government, attacks the central junta with great bitterness. This manifesto, to which the names of the ministry are attached, like a heavy load of canvass, covers a rotten hull, but real stability is wanting. No tidings yet of the long missing Indian mail. It is now more than a fortnight, nearly three week.?, beyond its time; and in addition to the alarm which prevails on the subject, commerce, by the interruption of the communication, sustains a serious injury. This is felt the more acutely, since our trade with the East ha1 been oi late increasing to a great extent. ^VThe anti-temperance society at Hamburg, founded by one Bocker, numbers 2000 members.

The landing plac? was cevered with rich crimson cloth- Her MajeBty, in the most gracious manner, acknowledged the respectful congratulations ot those officers of the arsenal, garrison, and dockyard, who had the honor of approaching her Majesty. The road was kept c lear by the horse police, under the direction of Mr. Mallalieu, the soueriutendent of the E division. Her Majesty and Prince Albert rode in an open carriage, and wea escorted by a detachment ol hu? sars. The Hon. Miss Canning, and another lady, accompanied her Majeaiy and her august consort, the Earla of Aberdeen and Liverpool following the Queen in a carriage aud four, to London, and after wards to the Great Western Railway, nation, at Paddington, where a special train in waiting conveyed them to Windsor.

Fkarguh O'Connor.?Feargus O'Cennor has so far left politics, and is ubout to turn farmer. He has published a work on the management ot small farms, and has for some time past been pointing out to his followers the superiority of location on land, instead of mere political agitation. The Frankfort Journal states that the King'of Prussia has written an autograph letter inviting Queen. Victoria and her consort to extend their visit on the continent to Berlin. Whetherthe invitation has been accepted, or whether it has been really given, is not known. ?UpwardB oflO 0D0 persons saluted Father Mathew with joyous acclamations on landing at the Kingston Jetty, last Saturday, from his mission in England.

The Moniteur publishes a report, addressed by Vice Admiral de Mackau to the King, giving to his Majesty an account of the situation of the Department of the Marine, and demanding an extraordinary credit, intended to cover unforseen expenses. The Minister exposed ifiat the budget of HSU only provided for 161 vessels?namely, 110 armed, 22 laid up in ordinary, and 2 hi commission, whilst the effective force was still 2(17,192 of which are armed, instead of 110. He then observes, that a mature examination had demonstrated to him, that if any reductions were possible,they should be very limited. "In that respect, 1 should not," he says, "in any case propose to your Majesty to reduce the number of armed vessels. I consider their maintenance in actice service, and as much as possible their formation into squadrons, as a condition necessary for placing the country in possession of a real naval force. A long experience of the past, and my own personal observations during my recent residence at Toulon, induce me to set a very great importance on preserving entire the armament collected in the Mediterranean." He then proceeds to slate, that the construction and armament of the 18 Transatlantic steam-packets, which were to be completed in 1842. would exceed the appropriations efthe budget (23,400,000) by 2,046,000 francs; that two iron steamers now in progress of construction for the navigation of the Senegal liiver, and the protection of French interests in that quarter, would cost 240,0091; and he recapitulated a number of pther items amounting together to 13,163,090f. which would be indispensable in order to balance the receipts and expenditure of the Marine Department; but, the Minister add*,1 hat he would be satisfied for the present with a credit of 6,286,0001, which he proposes to the King to authoiise him to open for 1H43, during the recess of the Chambers. His Majesty acceded to the demand, by an ordinance dated St. Cloud, 16th inst. Among the items enumerated by Admiral de Mackail is one Ot fui tho mieeiuu to Okiua, which is to consist of two frigates and three corvettes. Spain. The Constitutionnel of Barcelona of the 10th inst. states, that in the evening of the 8th there was an alert, occasioned by a report that the garrison ot the citadel intended to make a sortie. The drummers immediately b?at to arms, and in'an instant, the Militians were all at their posts. The anemy, however, did not venture out of the citadel. Colonel Martell, accompanied by his Aide-deCamp Febres, a well know.* republican, and an escort of mounted National Guards, entered Barcelona on the 9th, at 1 o'clock P.M. The people, from the gate of San Antonio to the Place of San Jaime, cheered him with loud vivas in favor of the Central Junta. Oa reaching the square, Celonel Martell, who commanded one of the divisions ot Ametler's expeditionary corns, addressed a warm allocution to the 3d battalion of volunteeis, who had taken arms to receive him. A banquet was then offered to him by the Junta at the Hotel of the Four Nations, and enthusiastic toasts in honor of the Central Junta were given. After dinner, Martell appeared at the balcony, which looks on the Kambia, and addressed the people ns follows:? " Barceloneee, union is impossible with the enemies of liberty. They wish to tyrannize over us, and we can enter into no compact with despots. Let honest men unite, and liberty is secure. Viva the Central Junta, the constitutional Queen Isabella II, and the soveieign people!" These lew words were received with unanimous applause. Martell, who was one of the newly appointed members ol the Junta, lelt on the same evening with two of his colleagues, to confer with Brigadier Narciso Ametler, who had arrived at Sans with seven battalions. The latter it appears had badly received Col. Prim, who had repaired to Martorell to meet him on his psesage through that town. The troops of Ametler consisted of free batlalions raised at Barcelona and Girona, and of mobilized militia of the former, so that the insurgents had been considerably reinforced by their accession. On the 10th, at (i o'clock in the morning, Ametler arrived at Molins del Rey, and entered Barcelona in the afternoon. The Moderados circulated reporis through the province that Barcelona had been delivered up to plunder and anarchy. This was unttue. Some manufactories were closed, but others were open, and that of M. Raman Nogues, one of the most important, was at full work. Emissaries of Prim, who is now called Count of Res ("nothing" in the Catalan language,) attempted on the night of the 7th to set fire to the manufactories ol Moutalan, Valenti, lous, ana r>erra, in which steam engines are used but the presence of some volunteers, commanded by Itiera and a member ot the Junta, sufficed to awe the incendiaries. A battalion of the militia of Mataro and a detachment from San Marli had entered Barcelona. On the other hand, the militia of lgualada and other districts, who had responded to the appeal of Prim and repaired to Gracia, had returned to their homes. Abdon Terradas, former alculde of Figueraa having esca|>ed from Toulouse,had succecded in making his way into Catalonia The Junta ot Girona intended to appoint him one of its members. The proclamation of the militia of Figueraa demanding the convocation of a central Junta, was drawn up in a republican spirit, und all the delegates about to be returned to the provincial junta belonged to the democratic party. Intelligence from Madrid to the 12th instant,shows that the government arc anticipating an outbreak in tfie capital- A proclamation had been issued by the political chief, enjoining evtry citizen who shall have received any arms, ammunition, or military stores of any kind,to give them up to the jirovisional government within the space of forty-eight hours, taking a receipt for the same. No one is to retain uny arms of any description without a license Irom ihe pr<>|>er authorities, and those parties wli# already have libensea for that purpose, are to get (hem renewed within eielit davs. The iioliiienl chief, ill apprehension of conic cfisturhance on I lie Ifiili, the first day of the elections, hud published another proclamation, calling oil the electors not to be led Hway by party feeling, or thcpermia?ioiib of ill disponed person*, buttoirive iheir votesonly ultermature deliberation to those candidates whom they believe will have no other object in view than the peace, truiiqiiillity nild future welfare of the country. Hy doing this, they will render themselves worthy of the title of the defenders of the holy sause of liberty. Later accounts, which come up to ihc lflih, hat the elections! Madrid began on that day. x he >pposition had gained seven ol the bureaus out ol twelve, but the total ol the ouflrages on the nr?t day were in favor of the Parliamentary party.

LiTKRrnoL Corn Exchange, Friday, Sept. 22.?The duty on loreign wheat has advanced to 17s on rye to 9< fld per quaiter, and on flour to 10*2} per barrel; on Colonial wheat to 4s, rye Is, beans 2s per quarter, and on flour to 2s fid per barrel. Since our la<t report, several parcels ol new wheat have appeared daily from Ireland, but of flout and oatmeal the receipts are small, whilst of other articles thence, or of any coastwise, the supplies are scarcely worth notice; and beyond 2,712 quarters of wheat from Danzig, the arrivals from abroad arc equally trtvial. Although we had little business passing generally in the corn trade from the close of Tuesday's market until today, wheat and other leading articles, during that period, assumed a firm aspect, exhibiting a tendency to iraprove in value, which by the proceedings on our Corn Exchange this morning, has been in some degree confirmed Irisb and useful qualities of forcigj red wheats, meeting a rather lively inquiry as invest ments, resulted in transactions to a fair extent for tha purpose at ?n advance of Id to 2d per 701d., and the lattei description, in particular cases, rather exceeded this amendment; lrom the millers and dealers, however, the demand was rather limited, and the few samplas ef farmers'wheat ottering to-day were very little deararthan on Tuesday.

Cottow, Sept. 33.?For several weeks past we have had a large speculative enquiry for cotton,but it has considerably diminished within the past few days, without any apparent cause, except the absence of further stimulating advices from the United States. The non-arrival of the OverlandMail has tended to produce some inactivity in that portion of the Manchester trade connected more immediately with the East Indies and China, bat the general aspect of that market is firm and healthy. The sales of the past ten weeks exhibit an average ol 97,400 hales taken each week for home consumption, from which it may be inferred that spinners are tolerably well stocked; they have, however, continued to purchase to a good extent, and with much confidence, since our previous rcSort; the demand has been fairly met by holders, at stea^ y pricos. In Surat no change is apparent, but Brazil and Egyptian are Jd per lb higher- Sea Islands are Jd to Id per lb dearer, according to quality. The s^les since Friday, though not so large as those of the previous week, have comprised 40,480 bales, viz: >3,690 American, 3,13(1 Brazilian, 1,400 Egyptian, 870 West India, (tc. Speculators have taken 16,600 American, 30* Bahia, 700 Maranhara, 300 Egyptian, and 300 Surat. Corn?The weather since our last has continued high* ly propitious for completing the hsrvest, and even in the northern districts it is stated to be rapidly approaching a conclusion ; such portion therefore as still remains out i? expected to be saved in fine condition. From several counties, however, and particularly on the eadt coast of England,the reports arc, we regret, so far very unfaverable as to the yield of wheat per acre, whilst in the circle around us, the farmers in any respect seem to have little cause for complaint. The duty on foreign wheat has advanced to 17s, on rye to 9s ad per quarter, and on flour to 10s 3|d per barrel ; on colonial wheat to Is, rye, Is, beans, 3a per quai ter, and on flour to 3s 6<1 per barrel. From the 1st to the 14th there were taken from bond here 39,366 <|uartera wheat at 14s per quarter duty. The foreign arrivals since this day week have consisted mostly of 6,633 quarters wheat from the north of Europe, and 3779 barrels of flour from the United States. At Tuesday's market there was a fair demand lor foreign wheat,"at an improvement of 3d to 3d per 701bs on the rst-s of that day se'nnight: and yesterday a rather lively inquiry for Irish and useful qualities of foreign red resulted in transactions to a fair extent for speculative purposes at an aevance of Id to 3d per 701. brand the lat ter description in particular cases rather exceeds this amomlmotit from thn miliars nrirl ilAaIf?M. howftViT. tho demand wax rather limited, and the few samples of famer* wheat ottering to-day wore very little dearer.
