The Money Market highly Prosperous and Great Inereaie in the Revenue-Arrival of the Great Overland Mail from ludia and China?Great Excitement in Ireland, in Preparation for the Trials, &e. &e. By the arrival yesterday of the splendid packet ship Montezuma, Captain Lowber, we have highly important accounts from England, to the 9th ult., being five 'days later than our last accounts. The accounts of commercial affairs are highly prosperous. Cotton is again on the advance, and from the movements of the Bank ot England, it is probable it will irat in/tvaaoa All ilia a|Iiav ra a fir aid art* allin riD the advance. The Money Market is flourishing, and the English revenue highly prosperous. On the whole, this news wtU probably add about $1,500,000 to tht value of American produce now in market. Great excitement exists in Ireland and vast preparations are making to convict O'Connell, and for ever put down repeal (agitation. The crisis of revolution or repeal is rapidly approaching. O'Connell is in high spirits and so are his tioops ; but he seems to expect a conviction. The pretty little Queen has been in trouble, in ' debt, in tears, thrown into a hedge, and in the way that ladies are who love their lords. Howqua the great Hong merchant is dead. This is a serious loss to America. The news from India is interesting. The Hon. Mr. Cushing had left Bombay for Canton. The revenue of the Kingdom of Great Britain had increased ?725,670 in the quarter ending Jan. 5th, 1844??552,879 of which was from Customs. The total increase for the year ending January 5th 1844, was ?5,742,078. The Samuel Hicks had arrived out. The Marquis of Westminster has joined the Corn Law League. Charles Swaine, the calico engraving poet of Manchester, hasbeen elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. His chief work at present is "The Mind," which is very popular. The Duke of Grafton has resigned the Lord Lieutenancy of the County of Suffolk. The rumor that Lord de Grey was about to be recalled from the Lord Lieutenancy of Ireland is contradicted on authority. A " real live Chinese" mandarin is about to visit the Court of St. James. No reduction is contemplated by Government in the. duty on tooacco, out it is said mat some alteration in the excise law affecting it will be made. Several destructive fires have occurred in London. The new Roman Catholic Cathedral at Lambeth is the largest structure ever erected in (treat Britain by voluntary contributions. It is now completed. The total cost is ?100,000. A son of Mivart, the fashionable hotel keeper in Brook street, has been remanded by the Insolvent Debtor's Court, to eight months imprisonment for contracting debts without any reasonable expectation of paying them. Hi* father allowed him ?200 per annum and the run of the hotel; but this was not sufficient, and in two years he was ?5500 in debt. The father of Count D'Orsay died in France on the 26th December. ( Fxargus O'Connor.?"Red Fergus" has challenged Mr. Cobden to a discussion on the Corn Laws. Mrs. Watson, mother of the late celebrated Methodist preacher, Richard Watson, expired at Nottingham on the 31st December. She was in her 90th year. The Duke of Bordeaux, after taking atourthrough the principal (manufacturing districts, and the principality ofWales, and the chief towns in the West, has taken up his residence pro ttm.Tat Brighton, which will be more than usually gay this winter. England. The Rbvemtte.?It has lately been our pleasing duty to present to the public a rich array of pro-ts of the prosperous advance made by the empire within the last two years, the eflect of a pruuent and patriotic administration of the government. Peace conquered and confirmed?the British territories profitably augmented?manufactures and commerce restored?boundless fields opened to their enterprise?and the value of British public * obligations enhanced ten per cent. To-day we complete the gratifying work by announcing an improvement in the revenue wholly without example, under any circumstances approaching to similarity. The readers of the Standard were prepared, by our brief and general, but accurate, announcement of last night, for a large increase in the public contributions of 1843 beyond those of the preceding year: in our present number we lay the figures in detail bofore them. In the tables inserted in our first page they will see an increase, a large increase hi every branch of revenue which can by any construction be treated as an index to the state of the mass of the people, with reference to their enjoyments, or to their active industry. The year's increase on the excise amounts to no less than ?387,603, and the total increase of all sources of revenue, deducting decrease upon those heads of taxation which are proofs of distress not of prosperity?such as the corn duties and the stamp duties?amounts, exclusive of the property tax, to ?1,063,97-fr?more than one million sterling Including the property tax, the increase would be ?5,742,078, and us res|>ects the resources of the Exchequer, its ability to meet the demands of the public service, as resects, too, the general ability of the nation, this increase of nearly six millions sterling is, questionless, a bona fide increase. But this is not the light in which we wish to have the returns looked to at present; we would direct ati tention to them as evidence of the national progress, f not as evidence of the national strength, of which, indeed, there never was any rational doubt. Let us then take the property tax from both years, because it was collected during a part only of IK42, and we shall have a comparative view to exception can be taken, viz.!? 1843?44,329,8681. minus 871,0461. property.tsx *43,781,88? 1843?60,071,9431. minui 6,949,9801. property-!** 44,819,683 Increase on the year, exclusive of property-tax. ?1,003,974 Thus, exclusive oi the iproperty-tax, nay, despite of its reflex operation, which the opponents of the measure threatened to be so injurious to other sources o{ revenue?exclusive ot the property-tax, orirt in ami* nf nil tho mluki.!' it ....... i? tin ordinary sources of revenue are more productive in 1848, than they were in 1842 by one million sterling, and upwards. Kven this, however, is an inadequate view of the national progress. On the face of the returns before us, tnere appears we must admit, a decrease, though a trifling one, in the Customs of last year. How this decrease has arisen will at once appear by a comparison of the corresponding quarters of the two years, compared as follows i? April. July. October. January 1S4J Si.iObftM 4,493,191 5,943,977 4,914.n& 1943 14,319,587 4,557.908 5,539,509 4,709,989 From this statement it is seen that the great excess of revenue in 1842 arises upon the October quarter of that year?an excess altogether attributable to the prodigious maa? of foreign corn iml ported or taken out of bond at the 8s. duty in the months of August and September, rated, if we mistake not, at three millions of quarters. Such revenue is an index of loss and not of gain, as for every shilling gained by the exchequer th# farmer E NE NE1 must have lost at least three, and lost the money never to return to this country. Upon the same principle upon whtch, in order to arrive at ? fair comparative view of the revenue of the two years, we have struck out the property tax for both years, we ought to strike out the corn duties, which made up so large a part of last year's revenue, and have produced little or nothing in the present year. 11 we had the figures enabling us to do this, there it no reason to doubt that the actual increase of the ordinary fixed sources of revenue, instead of resting, happily high, aa it does, above one million sterling, would closely approach to two millions. Such, at least, is apparently the just inference from the fact, that upon a comparison of the concluding quarters of the two years, in neither of which quarters did the corn duties sensibly operate, the Inst quarter presents an increase of more thin half a million. As to the other trifling deficiencies, they can be all as easily explained, while they whose business it is to find fault, will be somewhat at a loss to explain away one shilling of the noble increase of more than one million sterling, wholly exclusive of the property tax. Accident to Her Majesty.?An accident, which was happily attended with no serious result, occurred to her Majesty on the 4th January, in the immediate vicinity of the village of Uorton, near Datchet. The Queen, attended by the Marchioness of Douro, proceeded to the meet of his Royal Highness Prince Albert's harierst which took place at the Manor House at Horton) in an open pony phaeton and pair, driven by a postillion, wiio taking too short a turn in entering the road near the Five Bells, the neur wheel of the carriage, from the rottenness of the side of the road (occasioned by the late frost and rapid thuw), sank into the ditch, throwing the carriage against the hedge; the horse upon which the postillion was riding sinking in from the|satne cause. Her Majesty and the Marchioness of Douro were speedily rescued from their perilous position by Colonel Arbuthnot, who was in attendance upon the Queen on horseback. A small pony carriage, belonging to Mr. Ifolderness, of Horton, passing by at the moment, the use of it to her Majesty was immediately proffered by the lady who was driving, and graciously accepted by the Queen, who was driven back to the Castje by Colonel Arbuthnot, attended by the lady in waiting. The hounds being near the spot, a messenger was immediately dispatched to Prince Albert, who accompanied her Majesty on her return on horseback. The laborers who assisted in getting the carriage out of the ditch were liberally rewarded bv com mand of the Queen. Portsmouth, Jan. 5.?The Doc de Bordeaux.? His Royal Highness, accompanied by a 6uite of ten persons, among whom are Admiral Joyeuse, the Duke d'Escars, ?fcc <\:c., arrived at the George Hotel last evening from Southampton. The Admiral's barge was in attendance on his Royal Highness this morning, when with his suite he visited the Royal Clarence Victualling Yard, afterward landed at the Dockyard, and visited Rear Admiral Hyde Parker, whose Flag Lieutenant conducted his Highness and suite over the different departments of the dockyard. In the afternoon his Royal Highness visited the Royal Naval Hospital at Haslar, returning to the George Hotel to dinner. To-morrow it is expected he will leave for Brighton, to which place he is now en route. Mr. Braham's Concert.?It will be seen, by an advertisement in auother page, that the veteran [ Brahuin will, on the 22d instant, personally intro| duce his celebrated son, Mr. Hamilton Braham, to the Liverpool public, at the Royal Assembly Rooms, in Great George street. Mr. Braham will also be attended bv his son, Mr. C. Braham. The efforts of such a trio cannot fail to prove attractive Supply of Gas to the Metropolis.?Last night at seven o'clock the adjourned meeting, which was convened in pursuance of a requisition presented to the churchwardens, to take into consideration the present state and mode of supplying the public with gas. and to devise, if practicable, some mode of establishing a standard of purity and measure for the same, took place in the vestry of the parish of St. Martin's-in-tne-fields. Dr. Jones was called to the chair. Dr. Jones stated that one of the principal grievances. which not only the householders of that parish labored under, but every consumer of gas throughout the United Kingdom, was, that great partiality existed in its supply, those who burned by meter having to pay much more than those who are supplied by contract. He maintained that all alike should burn by measure, and that such measure should, be regulated by some government enuctment, like that which now kept in check the fraudulent tradesmen from using other than authorised weights and measures. So far us regarded the gas meters at present in use, nearly all, if not all, were deficient; and what was the course pursued by the companies 1 Why, they compelled every consumer, ere they permitted nis putting a meter pp, to send it to the directors, to be tested by their officers. The consequence in thousands, indeed in almost every case, was that a meter was palmed upon the consumer's premises, which nuuiu uitaouic gao iu a TCljf latgC ttlUUUIll HgdinBl the purchaser; and that so soon as it rose the iair, or water line, it refused to register in his favor. He (Dr. Jonesi submitted that such a state ot things ought not to oe tolerated. Nor is the gas as pure aB it ought to be. The first one or two [ hours the coal used gives off pure gas; the next, an inferior description; and, after this, a quality highly detrimental to the health and to the purity of the light, was manufactured. Yet there was no con' trol over these things. In Brussels, on the contrary, and perhaps in other continental citieH and towns, a law existed which kept in check the cupidity of the companies. Where gas was supplied of a bad quality, the consumer was compelled to burn three or tour times as much as otherwise to obtain a sufficient light. Several other gentlemen then spoke; after which resolutions were carried, with the view of following up the object in question, and amongst them was one to the effect that a committee be immediately formed to meet and confer with other parishes. A.vri-Slavery Movements ?A report of the late Keat Anti-Slaiery Convention in London had just en published, in a large volume, containing a report of all the sayings and doings of every hody upon every thing, connected with this subject. The editor of the London Advertiser says:?"A very large portion of the volume relates to slavery in the Southern States of America. And nowhere does the demon of slavery assume a more repulsive aspect than in that land of republican institutions. The details of the outrages perpetrated by the spurious republican slave proprietors on their unfortunate victims, cannot be read without feelings of absolute horror. Never was denunciation more deserved than that which Mr. O'Connell some years ago, hurled at the heads of the slave-holders in the United States. They felt its justice ; they writhed under its power; and even up till the present moment they have not forgotten Mr. O'Connell. The savage hate of such men Mr. O'Connell cannot but regard as one of his holiest tributes. One or two more similar conventions will suffice to abolish slavery in all parts of the globe." Tea Party of Latter Day Saints.?The sect commonly designated ttie Latter Day Saints held a lea party, on the 23th ult., in Middlewich, Cheshire. Though the town is small, sud this body of people is generally spoken slightingly of, between one nnd two hundred attended, and partook of tea, &c. They are, apparently, a good-humored and agreeable people. The room was beautifully adorned ; and the company seemed much gratified with the fare provided for the occasion. Previous to separating they sung a suitable hymn, expressive of som? of their opinions. Death from Sleeping on a Damp Bed.?The Shrewsbury Journal mentions the demise of Mr. John Morris, lion merchant, of Mardol, in that town, whose death was caused hy having slept in a damp bed at an inn, in Nantwich, a fortnight before, and adds, " We sincerely wish there was a law to punish severely all persons who are guilty of una iiigiuj lr^iniruaujir: jURUlHiC U1 )>UlUIlg tllUll guest* to sleep in dnnip beds, as many valuable lives have been wantonly sacrificed in consequence." The Chief Justiceship of the newly acquired settlement, Hong-Kong, has been offered to no less than seven members of the Knglish bar, and been declined by thein all, although the salary attached to the olfice is to be ?301)0 a year. A letter from the island of Bourbon of the 1st of September, which is published in the French papers, states that the Knglish have taken possession of Diego 3aurez, a magnificent port in the island of Madagascar. The French press, \ in 1843, brought forth 6,176 works in all the languages, dead and living ; 1,879 engravings and litliogruphic prints ; 147 nu|is, plans, and charts, and 310 pieces of music have also been published. Mine Helen Faucit has been tempted to renew all her Scottish engagements. At Glasgow thev were obliged to turn the orchestra into stalls to accommodate the people. The houses have been overflowing. The Commerce says?"a workman of the Rue vielles-audriettes, who for some time has attended the public lectnrea on mechanics, has invented a machine, bv which a man can make 40 or 50 pairs of shoes a day," W Yi W YORK, TUESDAY IV tfTATR AND PROSPECT* OF MAWTJFACTUIUW.?T trade circulars which usually emanate at this s? son from the m unufacturing counties are, perha] in thejpiesent year more than ordinarily intere ing. Employment in the great manufacturing I iness of this country is becoming more and nit the staple employment of her people, and the pr perity of her manufacture more and more the s pie prosperity of the empire. The returns, then, the state ana condition of her manufacturing bu ness. and of the markets (home or foreign) up wnicn U is dependent, present in aome sort a t of the general ultimate prosperity of the win country. Now, in the present year the result these returns is on the whole favorable ; and re tively speaking? looking to the immediate pn and to the anticipations which it might reasonal have suggested?not simply favorable, bui higi encouraging. But it is not to tliis mere general suit, or to the inferences or speculations to which might give rise that jve uow refer. A great co mercial experiment?not, it is true, adventured any extrenuj^ or wholly unreserved measure, I still, to a ^free which warrants us in saying tl there was an experiment?a change?an alterati of system?lias been in progress during the p year. A more open and extended system of int national trade, the mutual benefits of which (i! could only be realised in practice) to all the ma time countries of Europe and America, have lo been admitted in theory, has been attempted to reduced, so far as the commercial oolicy ofEi land is concerned, into something like an appro mation to practical 0|ieiation. The general red) tion of our import duties, which so peculiarly d tinguished the lust change in our commercial tar and which was mude in the very face of a ser; of the most adverse commercial negotiations? negociationsexpresslv conducted by foreign pow< upon principles of the most selfish prohibition which was made in the face of the most nnnierc array of the most highly hostile tariffs that has i pcareu mutual wuiiiu cutimiciuicu niciiiury?n reduction, we say, under these circumstances, v> a pledge that England, the first commercial a manufacturing country of the globe, was in eatn in the principles which she advocated, and sinci in her faith in their success. And what has been the result"? What has be the specific result in extending and opening fbrei markets, and what the general one upon our o' manufacturing business"? So far us foreign tarifls are concerned, the ree has been, it must be owned, literally nothing, the course of last spring, us the issues of the se ral negociations with Russia, France, Portugal,!! the Brazils, and the fruits of the hostile tanfiBof' United States,and the European protectionist coi tries, were successively developing themselves, took occasion, from tune to time, to deduce t insist upon the moral with which these occurren were pregnant; and while urging the incaleula benefits which must accrue to nil parties from adoption of more liberal and extended principle! commerce?so only that the liberality were ret rocal?to deprecate the cession of our own adv tages until we were certain that the considerate for the purpose of obtaining which that cession I been made were tolerably safe to be realized. No, it is to ourselves, and to our own mark* that we have chiefly to trust. That the natural vantages which have led to the estabhshmeni one staple trade or manufacture in this country,) another, and a different one, in that?which hi made cotton-spinning the business here, and cc growing the occupation there?must ultimately o come the artificial restrictions of tarifls and c ventions, we can certainly entertain but little dot but these are results which cannot be forced. ' may give up our all to gain them, and yet find c selves in the end no nearer thein than before, the meanwhile, we must look to the. extensior our markets by such means as are safe and certt and in such places as must always be open to u we mean, of course, by colonization, and we r< to the resources and agency of our vast coloi empire. While that is secured to us, ana souii ana wisely administered, we may safely let fore tariffs take their course, secure the while that w is for the benefit of the whole will certainly c quor in the end.?Timu. University Intelligence.?Oxford.?Janu having come, the graduates have gone into country to refresh for more theological squabbli a grand set-to being anticipated in next term.

The Tobacco Trade.?From the result of interviews had by deputations of the tobacco tri with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, it is infer that no reduction of duty is contemplated, but t there will be an alteration in the Excise law nfl't ing the article. A "Jolly Nose."?The following is going round of the Paris journals :?At the Hure, in Department of the Upper Saone, may be seer man who was formerly an under cook, who I had his nose cut off by M.

A Real Mandarin coming.?It is now positi ly stated that a Chinese Ambassador, "a real I China mandarin," deputed by his Celestial Majei the Imperial brother to the sun and cousin-gem to the moon, is about forthwith to exhibit bis | tail and five-clawed dragon, his peacock's feat and red button, among the blue ribbands, lib rods, white sticks, and gai ters of the court of Majesty Queen Victory.

The English provinoial papers still contain rnerous cases of fires in stack yards, most or a I which are the work, of incendiaries. There are 18 line-of-battle ships, 14 frigates, sloops of war, and 14 steam frigates now build at the various dockyards of her Majesty.

Ireland* State Trials?Thk Special Jury.?The j cses of striking a Special Jury in the cns?- of State travetseis commenced at twelve o'clock Wednesday, in the office of Mr. Bourne, clerk the Crown. The (fovernment reporter and n reporter fr the traversers were present, but no other report were allowed admission. An application was mt on the part of the traversers foru postponement the summons, as they had ne copy of the jury par though several applications had been made tor and they could not without it sustnin any obj lion they might have to the names drawn. Al some conversation it was agreed that an adjou nient should take place till the following day, i that uaeh of the travers< ra should he allowed take a copy of the panel. The "special panel" for the year contains names of seven hundred and seventeen perso sworn to be worth ?5,000 each at least, and a c responding number of cards, numbered from on< seven hundred and seventeen, were to be thro into a box and shaken about, and then forty-eij nurds were to be drawn out, and the persons whi numbers in the general list correspond with thi on the cards were to form the list. The two p ties: namely, the crown and the traversers, wi next to strike ofl each twelve names, and, of I remaining twenty-four, the twelve who should fi answer when called in Court would constitute t special jury. The process of striking the jury list comment on Thursday, when Mr. Brewster and Mr. Lung attended on behalf of the crown, and Mcsj Whiteside, Mahony, and others on behalf of I traversers It ap|>ears that the panel, of whic cojiy had been granted, had been examined, wli it is alleged the traversers' counsel found, tha number of the persons admitted as qualified pir were not recorded on the list; and it is said tl the parties so omitted are all liberals, and many them Catholics. According to the Freeman Friday last, Mr. Whiteside spoke as follows "There was a fact of which the agents for tin* t versers became aware, for the first time, yesterii evening. At an advanced hour they receirti ORK IORNING, FEBRUARY 6 he copy of the special panel from which the jurj <n- this esse was to he struck; and, on looking tnroi ps, it, they had discovered, that, l>y some mostex st- ordinary und unaccountable mistake, tile naiiiei >u- a large portion of the public who were entered >re the jurors' hook as qualified to act as speeialjui 08- had been omitted from the special list.

The following was the only exp'anatiot on fered:?"The Sub-Sheriff said,that in the absr ast of the High Sheriff, he felt bound to state thate< er- single person selected by the llecor er was pit fit upon the list, and every single one appearing on iri- Recorder's book, marked as special jurors, wat ,ng the speciul panel. b,'very single one was c be pared by the High Sherilf and himself, natiu ig- name, and even letter by letter.

A few objections were made, us one or two persons, officially or otherwise di* ?p- lifted, were passed over, uud, at length, forty-e his names were drawn out.

As to an acquittal it lerk scarcely depended on guilt or innocence. All the facts at? took place in the open day?in the presence of the magis. nit- trates aud police. They were committed to the secrecy of the public press. When the old watchmen were cry ing the hour, it was a sad way of keeping a secret as tc '. " the precise hour of the night (a laugh ) It was so wit): 'I"" them. They took an instrument to confide their secrets Ply. to, which finds its way all over the world.

His pen or his mind could not slumble in a cell or any where else. The prospects of repeal were brightening ove: and la"<l. The accession of John O'Neal, Ksq ofBuno 111 wen Castle, was an event in itself of high importance.Smith O'Brien was a host in himself.

Towards eight o'clock of the morning of ihe bill of September two boats ber longing to trie French corvette Alcmene left Can' ton for the place of meeting. They contained the French Consul, Captain Duplan, the Chancelier de ' C'onsulut, eiglu officers of the corvette, an interpreter, and several private gentlemen, and reached the house of Pwankingqua after an hour's pull.? . Then the Commandant and Consul were shown in> to the large hall, and a delegate of the Imperial Commissioner, the Kwangchowfoo and several other mandarins paid their respects to them. At 1 near the hour fixed upon, an officer wearing a cry; stul button announced that the Imperial Commissioner was prepared for the interview, when the , (!onml und|< 'aptain with the others before mentioni ed descended to the reception room, and there found llie high Chinese officers and a number ol other functionaries wearing white and blue buttons. Some compliments having passed, the French Con' sul presented his credentials from the Minister of Forcigh Affairs to the Viceroy, who handed them I to the lllllterilll Commissioner, mid the latter tnnlr ! note of and returned them to him. After this many i questions were put concerning his Majesty the King i of the French, about France and Iter ministers generally, and more particularly M. Guizot became the subject of conversation, which continued for more than an hour, during which a collation waa ! offered by the high Chinese officers to their guests. | This intercourse between the high Chinese func, tionaries unit officers of foreign nations would lead to suppose that an imjiortant change is beginning . to operate with regard to Europeans?a change i which, managed with care, would appear to augur an approach to un entirely friendly understanding between the Celestial empire and the various Euro* ' pean governments. Spain. ~ Our advices from Madrid are of the 29th Dec. , The city, thanks to the presence of an overwhelm1 ing military force, continued tranquil, but the post1 tion of affairs was considered on all handslo ha extremely critical. Even the Moderados had be. corne alarmed at the headlong imprudence of the . ministry; and n deputation from that body had waited on Gonzales Jiravo to demand an explanar lion of his conduct, und also the programme of his future policy. He assured them, of course, that it was his intention to govern constitutionally. He J said lie hud prorogued the Cortes merely for the \ purpose ot hastening some meBsureB which were important and urgent; more especially those which e had reference to the provincial deputations and the organization of the National Guard; and lie added p that three weeks or a month would suffice for these T preliminary labors, when he proposed to renssemble [l the Cortes, and ask it for a bill of indemnity. The deputation professed to be satisfied with ttiis *r A}iiuutii ion, wmuii (Iiuvrv imuuu^ uui uiai T they were very easily satisfied.

The decree h for the re-orgnnization of the National Guard would ? it was expected, be published in the Gazette of the 90th.

Jj The Indian mail was recived in London on t Thursday evening, with letters and papera from Bombay, to Dec 1. The principal items relate to J, the prevalence of great sickness in the two newlyacquired possessions of Sinde, in India, and of Hong Kong, in China. Peace prevails throughout e British India, although the preparations for war " were busy throughout the north-western districts " An army of about 15,(XXI men wus assembled on lp the banks of the ,*?utlej, and another was collecting '* at Agra; the former to compel the Sikns to adopt '* some regular fixed system of government, and the. latter to force the Government of Gwahor to make y proper arrangements. , In llong Kong the sickness has arisen, ati the e Chinese SHy, from the nutureofthe waters of the l- islands, which they pretend cannot be used for any - time without the worst result. It was even asserted ir that tlo- British authorities contemplated the abandonment of that island, since the death of the ij much lamimted Mr. Morrison. io The news from China extends to the beginning i- of October. The most important intelligence was le the arrangement of a supplementary treaty between uf the Chinese and the British governments;! one clause of which is for the purpose of guaranteeing to all foreign nations the same privileges of trade an to the British themselves This will have the effect of rendering unnecessary all negotiations between the Chinese Emperor and the other powers. The. ; Chinese Government is said to be sincere now in '> its determination to abide by the regulations of I the treaty, which will prevent all discussions with ' other foreigners. The treaty is looked upon in the East as the most signal triumph of the British Ple* nipotentiary, for it renders nugatory all the attempts of the French and American diplomatic missions, lately sent with such pomp to tnc Chinese coast. ( Laughter has already begun at the appearance of two ambassadors, sent thither before it was known n that they would be received, in orderto gain a purpose which was granted before they appeared. They now have no ground for ne^ociatton, and must return to their own country, in order to be laughed at at home and abroad. The American frigate Brandy wine stopped for some weeks at Bomhay, to wait for Mr. Gushing, the minister, who was going to seethe sea frontiers of the south ot the Celestial Empire, lie had sailed for Macao the 27th November.
