Br a special and extraordinary express from Boston, which arrived yesterday afternoon, five days later intelligence from Europe has bsen received at the sftice of the New York Herald. This news reashed Boston on Tuesday evening by the Republic, a New York ship, Capt. Luce, which left Liverpool on the 11th ult. We have papers to that date inclusive. According to all accounts O'Connell may be convicted. The State Trials were to begin in four days?on the 15th ult. mere naa Deen a mniier iiiipruvcmcai in mo wheat market. Money continued abundant. Cotton waa again in the ascendancy. Market clofeed firmly at the last accounts. There have bsen a lew revolutionary indications in France. A thousand students had called upon Laiitte; they were ripe for an imeute and cried "vive Molilre," tfee. A good prospect for a very fine spring trade was held out. Every thing was prosperous in Great Britain. Fresh disturbance had broken out in Athens. Packet ships New York and Liverpool, arrived out on the 10th ult. We give in our extracts a full description'of a grand fancy and masquerade ball in England. It is there seen that names are given without hesitation; yet here such a publication would be looked upon with astonishment, if nothing more. The Court has not removed toClaremont as was expected, in consequence of the prevalence of an epidemic in the house. Her Majesty and his Royal Highness Prince Albert remain at Windsor, and have taken their usual out-door airings during the week. The Clyde brings home $236,490, $32,000 of which are fiom Tampico, and $46,000 from Vera Cruz, to pay the Mexican dividend. The rest are lor merchants' accounts. She also brings 4,661 ounces of gold dust, 3,024 ounces ot silver, and 152 of platina; ?1,463 in British coin, 196 serons of cochineal, See. It was gathered as a fact that General O'Donnell, Captain-General of Cuba, was openly encouraging the revival of the slave trade ut Cuba. Three large cargoes of these neor miserable wretches had been recently landed there. Since the proclamation of June, 1842, a number of the light sovereigns, exceeding in amount ?10,000,000 sterling, has been withdrawn from circulation. Calculating the loss on each sovereign to be 3d, the total loss sustained by the public would amount to about ?125,000. The weather in England had been remarkably mild, apple trees in bud and blossom, together witn polyanthuses, wall flowers, primroses, and daises, in full bloom, may now be observed in almost all the gardens in the neighborhood of Lancaster. Mkbtino or Parliament.?The Dublin Evening Post contains the following:?"We have good reason to believe that soon alter the opening of the session a movement of a practical and concentrated kind will be made in relation to the state of Ireland, and the extraordinary events which have recently occurred amongst us- It is stated, that Lord John Russell is to bring the aflairs of Ireland under the consideration of the house, by a substantive motion fot inquiry by a committee of the whole house, and that notice on the subject may be given ih the first week of the session. Thus early, we deem it necessary to urge the prompt attendance of the liberal Irish members et the opening of the session." The Rebeccaites.?At the Carmarthen Assizes, which began on the 27th December, several rioter* came before the court. Many were let off", othert were tried on minor offences, and, when convicted, recommended to mercy, and altogether the utmost leniency was shown. The Assizes closed on Monday week, when the men called Shony-syborfawr and Dia-y-cantwr were sentenced respectively to trasportation for life and for twenty years.? Other prisoners were sentenced to imprisonment lor terms varying from six to twelve months. As a proof of the improvement in trade, and the better condition of the working classes, it may be mentioned that at the close of Saturday's market ut Barnsley. preceding Christmas, every butcher'* shop and stall was cleared of its contents; in fact, tlie supply ol beet was lime above nan equal 10 ine demand.?Manchester Guardian. The "National" publishes a letter from Rome, announcing that the utmost distress prevails in that city. Commerce, agriculture, and manufacture! are in a deplorable state, and the only income derived by the shopkeepers is from strangers. Mas. Gii-mour's Trial-?On Wednesday the indictment for trial was served on Mrs. (Jifmour ir the prison. The trial, as we lately stated, is to take place in Edinburgh, and the day fixed is the 12lh inst. ' The sale of Lieutenant Munro's effects took place on Wednesday and Thursday, notwithstanding the interdict of Mi. Wakley, the Coroner, who has been served with a notice that he will he held responsible for the expenses attending the postponement. Joint -Stock Banks.?As the charter of the Bank of England is liable to expire upon 12 'months' notice, if given within six months after the 1st of .Yu gust next, the subject of banking will probably be brought under consideration of the next session ol Parliament. Joint-stock banks have now been established in London for about ten years. Theii paid-up capital exceeds four millions sterling. Th? deposits placed in their hands by the public have been estimated to amount to between six and sever millions. Their ^shareholders number apout 3,00t persons, among whom are some of the wcalthiesi and most respectable men in the kingdom. Practically they are denied admission into our courts ol tustice. Yet these powerful companies are beyond the pale of the law. When a person opens an account with oae of these banks, he signs an agreement, convenanting to pay to certain other personi therein named, any debts that may become due by him to the hank. These contracts are legally binding, and hence the law provides a loop-hole of es cape from the injustice of its own enactments. Bui is it not a disgrace to the legislature of any civilized country, that such a loop-hole should be rendered nacesuatyi The London joint-stock banks are agents to many other banks located in the country -?in Ireland and in the colonies. It is the legiti mate kuauiese ot tnese nanus to araw dius upon their London agents. But banks in London having more than six partners are not permitted to accept bills drawn at a shorter period than six months aftet date,while banks not having more than six partner: may accept bills drawn at any term. Is this aprool of the wisdom of the legislature! Is this the impartiality of the law! Is this such an enactment at is consistent with common justice or with common cense! Charles Swain, the poet, has bean elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. Extraordinary Mdnikicknck.?The followinf most munificent bequests but been made by the late Dr. Beck with, of York ^-?2000 for the belli of York Minster, ?3000 to restore the Chapter house, ?10,000 to the Museum, ?5000 to the Blint School, and ?5000 for a penitentiary No less than 650 tons of iron have been used it constructing the splendid roof at the junction of the Liverpool and Manchester and Manchester anc Leeds Railways, at HuntVbank, Manchester. A tablet of white marble is to be erected to the memory of the late Dr. Southey, in the church o Orostliwaite, near Keswick, for which Mr. Words worth has furnished a poetical inscription. The lVussian Gazette announces that an Knglisl engineer, of the name of Shuttleworth, has pro posed the formation of a railway upon nearly the same plan as the atmospheric railway, eubstitut nf water instead of air as the means of producinf action. E NE NEY Royal Western Yacht Club Fancy Dress ci Ball.?The Annual ball, the proceeds of which are lc added to the regatta fund, took place on Wednes- m day evening last, under the very distinguished pa- gi trOllaKe of the mpmhara nf Dl.rmni.tW "ni?tninn ui of the Royal Western Yacht Club, at Elliott's Roy- ci al Hotel, on which occasion the splendid assembly si room and noble suite of apartments were mpst pi tastefully and appropriately decorated; the entire o arrangements, which had been managed by a com- tl mittee of gentlemen from the Yachl Club, gave tl the utmost satisfaction; indeed, nothing could be ci more complete, and though the party was so large, ir the utmost regularity prevailed. tl The company began to arrive shortly after nine tc o'clock, and before eleven one ot the most bril- rt liant assemblies that ever graced the Royal Hotel tl was present, and the ball room had a most enliven- u| ing and magnificent appearance; nothing could ti exceed the beauty and cheerfulness of the scene.? la Dancing was maintained with an animated spirit tl till 12o clock. when supper was announced, which " consisted of tne most rtcnercht delicacies in abun- pi dance. The tables were laid out in a style which ai commanded the approval of all, and too much praise cannot be given to Mr. and Mrs. Elliott for Cl the rich display. ({ Dancing was resumed after the repast?and en- t( joyment, " Liks the midnight flower J ' That soorns the eye of vulgar light," ^ was indeed the order of the night. y! Many of the characters were admirably dressed, : and in good keeping; and not the least imposing " feature of the company were lite presence of a {V number of British officers in full dress uniform, whose martial uppearance afforded some idea of the "Pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious ta war." The bands of the Royal Marines and of the 75th Regiment were present, and entertained di the company by their sweet strains.

His biography tl would include all the important events connected H with the foreign trade during the last thirty years. 1 Hence we shall confine ourselves to a few remarks on the character and conduct of the deceased.? a Howqua was descended from a respectable Fokien family, long resident in the principal black tea dis- f5 trict, and his grandfather was one of the Amoy t< ' Hong, who,' with the progenitors of Jie Can- p ' ton Hong merchants, Poon-ke-qua, Chuncqua, and b Minqua, were ordered by the Emperor to remave r to Canton, when all intercourse was forbidden with I i the English and Dutch at the port of Amoy. Howqua had attained his 75th year when he died, and b i tor a long time had been in a feeble state of health, I _:.u ~t.. .... ... J i..., Willi till CAI1CIIIC1J niicnuaicu name, i/ui t?uh uu, impaired intellectual vigor up to his last illness.? His fortune is estimated variously, hut it is belie v| ed he has larga investments in the British and fo, reign funds, and we know that a twelvemonth <: . since one of the most intimate of his foreign friends I expressed his belief that Howqua was then worth at least 25,000.000 dollars; except a small portion, t ' the whole is the result of his own industry and enterprise. Our attack on Canton during the last 1 ' war inflicted considerable injury on Howqua ; the P value of the pack-houses and their contents, which \ ' were then destroyed, amounted alone to 1,000.000 ' dollars, and Howqua used toaflirm that the war had inflicted on him a loss of 2,000,000 dollars. His ( [ proportion of the Canton ransom was 800,000 dol' lars. It was after this event that he prayed the ! Emperor to be permitted to retire from his position p as Hong merchant, respectlully tendering at the p same time what he called all his wealth, viz. v r 2,500,000 taels, which he said all accrued to him h J from the Emperor's bounty, and supplicated the im- P jicrtal will to accord him such portion thereof ns its s heavenly benevolence deemed fit, to maintain him 8 during the wretched remnant of his life. The peti- |j ' lion was refused. It must, however, be observed, j, that the Chinese government had the greatest con- ? fldence in Howqua, who to the last retained an in- r " veterate aversion to new customs nnd modern fa- t| , shiens, whilst he clung with the most conservative tenacity to the old corrupt system by which his ' vast wealth was mainly accumulated. Howqua * was the guardian and controller of the Consoo n Fund, antl the organ of communication between t| the government and the foreign merchanfc. He n 1 possessed vast power nnd influence among his coun- t, trynien. was a large landed proprietor, and had ,] ; founded and endowed a temple to Budha, in the t< suburbs of Canton. It was supposed that the ti 1 refusal of Howqna's prayer to retire into private fj ' life was owing to the late war, and the claims n which the Government might have on his t< 1 services *at such a crisis; wc believe the truth a 1 was, that, besides the undeniable influence IIow- 8| qua possessed, yet his notorious wealth and sue- p cess were the cause of his detention. The local ? mandarins, and perhaps some also at Pekin, were j, , well aware that Howqua was made of squeezeable n , materials, and as long as he occupied his onerous ? , post they could often test his finalities in that re- |, . spsct. As a merchant we believe the deceased c I could he favorably contrasted with the most emi- t nent that Europe has produced. It seems almost incredible, but not less true, that to the last he di- tl J rectsd his vast and complicated trade, which al- f, [ most encircled the globe, alone. His knowledge l( and even familiarity with mercantile details con. 0 neettd with the trade ol foreign ports were truly .4 j. astonishing j sound judgment, true prudence, wary 0 ' circumspection, and a wise economy, were distin- ^ " guishing traits of his mercantile character. By our c countrymen Howqua was not liked, his predilec- a 1 lions were American, and justly so we think, see- c ing that he was indebted at an early stage ol his j career to a citizen of that country for information ti [ be sought in vain from the English ; and tnoreo- 0 [ vrr, the monopoly of the East India Company ren- ti dered an American association preferable in a pe- i W Y ( V YORK, THURSDAY 1 uniary sense to any English connexion. It is alged by his friends that Howqua would never con nt to evade the duties, or smuggle any kind ol oods. We doubt this, as he had branch housec t Soochow, Ningpo, Shanghai, and other opulenl ities in China. It is hardly credible that he could lccsBsfully carry on his business there, with com titora who did smuggle whenever they had the pportunity, and which the notorious venality ol le authoiities rendered quite the rule, rather than le exception. In conclusion, we are glad to reord a gratifying fact which will einlmlm the me. lory of old Howqua. Since the difficulties aboul le opium trade, he has wholly abstained from niching the " unclean thing." Directly or indisctly, he has uniiornily refused again engaging in lis traffic, although he might have added milliom pon millions to bis treasure. This is no mean teamony to his patriotism and his respect for the iws and regulations of his country. As & type ol le old regime?as a Chinese Conservative of the purest ray serene"?the death of Howqua will, srhaps, be deemed by his sovereign and country 9 a positive national calamity.?Friend of China The Gold Sand of the Ural Mountains?Acarding to the last intelligence from Siberia the en trprise of gold washing has extended itself from le eastern side of the Ural mountains to the Altai ad the layers of gold sand have been found to ex nd along the Chinese frontier over a space ol ),000 square miles, of which the 200th part in tht ral district alone furnishes an average of300 poudi he poud is 32 2-3lb) a year?equal to 15,000i000 ol iper roubles.

Had it bee uch a one as they would have rejoiced in, w hould of course have looked in vain for anvthin ike justice in the decision. They would hav ieen satisfied, perhaps, with a majority of Repeal rs ; and as, in the eyes of such men, agitation fo epeal is not a crime, but a virtue, however stron he evidence against the parties accused, the vet ict must inevitably have been one of acuuittal. The complainers, however, are not without plan ible pretences to support their charge of unfaii ess on the part of the crown. They allege tha he special jury list has been tampered wiih, man ames of Roman Catholics being left off that ough a be on. This is a charge easily made, and w are say, on investigation, would he found to he a igethcr without foundation, or based only onsom mnl and purely accidental error*.

answerably observes, " their be guilt in the acts , charged against the traversers, every member of the Repeal Association is in specie, tnough not in [ degree, as guilty as the gentlemen named in the inI dictment.

The duty of the Attorney-General was \ plain: " he was to procure a fair trial, and that fair trial he certainly could not procure, had he allowed the confederates of the accused, whether Roman Catholics or Protestants, to constitute the jury to decide unon the guilt or innocence of their common confederacy."

France. e Gur advices from Paris are to the 8th. M. Lakittk and the Paris Students.?The fol,t ing is from the Moniteur:?A certain number of students, which may be estimated at about 300, re>1 paired, on Saturday, to the house of M. Laflitte, to congratulate him on the speech which he recently pronounced in the Chamber of Deputies. On 0 passing before Moli&re's monument, in the Rue t. Richelieu, they repeatedly cried 'Vive Moliire.' After waiting on M. Laflitte, they resolved to pron ceed to Passy, to visit M. Bcrcnger. They stopped a moment on the Boulevards, before the Ministry of Foreign Aflairn, and cried, 'Down with Ouizot, is but these clamors immediately ceased on the injunction of the Commissary of Police, who watched their movements. Having partly dispersed at this point, they soon afterwards formed again in the Itue lloyale, and marched in the direction of I'assy. M. IJerenger, however, was absent fiom home. In the main street of Passy, the Commis. sary of Police,who had not for an instant lost sight h of the rioters, was insulted, and several of the ' agent- who accompanied him were ill-trented Ten ^ of the authors of those violences were here arrest'? ed, and the remainder dispersed. e The National and Keforme publish the speech addressed to M. Laflitte by the deputation of students who waited upon him in the nmne of their comrades. It is as follows:? ' The youth of the schools entirely concur in the Isold ' truths which you exposed from the national tribune They do not come to congratulate you on having couf, rageously accomplished the duty of a good citi/.cn, ol if having obeyed the noble dictates of your conscience as a public man?they come only to afford an additional proof r that they are not so indifferent as the Ministry atfect to be' licve to the atfairs of the country. A portion of the Par, liament responded to your prophetic words by irony and ' insult; hut all Krance is now in possession of them through n the press, and will faithfully preserve them as a sacred 5- deposit until the day when, bursting asunder the chains e with which it is sought to restrain them, they will resume i- with a firmer pace their course towards the destinies to e whicli they are called. Krance has not forgotten the immense part you took in the Parliamentary struggles oi k the Kestoration?those memorable struggles which prepared the overthrow of an abhorred dynasty. They know " that the popularity of your name served as a pedestal on which to raise u new dynasty Von have since publicly, and in the face ef Krance, demanded pardon from Ood and r. man for the part you acted on that occasion. History, set. vere and inexorable history, will assign to each his true a position, and stigmatize the :eal culprits with deserved ill opprobrium. Before leaving this ever celebrated hotel, the cradle and the centre of our revolution of three da> s, permit the youthful generation now crowding around you to express one wish in your presence. The Opposition of 1815 was organized and disciplined. Let the present 11 Opposition adopt a similar organization, and advance like one man. By this means it will acquire an irresistible y force, and the wholecountry, that army of It,000,000 men, will array itself in a mass under its banners." M. Laflitte replied? e " Ossnr.M(ii?I am affected by the sentiments you have just expressed, and thank you for them. Vour patriotism, intelligence, and courage are long known to me, ir and you may not have forgotten that, notwithstanding the e clamors of the present ruling party, I already paid a well merited and solemn tribute of justice to your services, and ,i to the devotion you had evinced at another period. The i revolution of July had then the upper hanif, which she " lias since lost through the ingratitude of some, and the inn difference of others. You know the disrespect now shown <* to thosewho have remained faithful to its'promiaes and eng gagements. I reminded the Chamtier oi its responsibility c in presence of the jierils with which we are menaced, and the corruption which debases us. As for me, gentlemen, r I am nearer the tomb than aay of you of your cradle; liut, _ to the last, I will discharge my duty; and my heart, I . pledge my honor to you, shall never ceafc to heat for liberty ami the happiness of Krance."

The Minister suggests the necessity for red forming "such an abuse," and recommends in fud lure the following distribution of the earnings of >f the convicts, (and which has been sanctioned by a o royal ordinance, and to take effect on the 1st inst.) HERA 1844."' The portion granted out of the produce of their la* bor to criminate detained in the central houaea of correction (hall he hereafter 3*10tha to those cona i - i j i_i .r i i/ul.. l. i aemneaio nam inner; ui riwm iu iiiuk irmnmu to reclusion, and 5-10ths to prisoner* confined tor more than a year. The proportion will be still more reduced for those committed for a second oflence. The earnings of the piisoners are to be divided into two equal portions, the one to be applied to their use during their cuotivity, and the other reserved for the period of their liberation. According to the report of the Minister ot the Interior, the prisoners in the central houses of correction on the 1st of July, 1843, amounted to 19,212, viz:? Adult males condemned to hard labor, W>; condemned to rcclmion ,4,1193-, condemned to more than one year, 10,104? 14,330. Adult females condemned to hard labor, 010; condemned to reclusion, 690; condemned to imprisonment, 3,610?4,011.?Total, 18,347 Young prisoners, boys, 743; girls, 133? 80A.?Urand total, 19,313. Of these, 7,830 had been previously convicted? namely, 0,486 men, and 1,344 women. Under the then existing system no distinction existed between them and the prisoners condemned for a first offence. According to the new ordinance, 965 of the 18,347 adult prisoners will receive 3-10ths of the amount of their labor, 4,672 4-lOths, and 12,710 5-10ths or one-half. The labor of the convicts produced, in 18-12,2,200,OOOf, and in 1843, 2,300,0001.

Substitute fob Steam.?La R e forme announces that an operative at Kuel lias discovered a substitute for steam. The experiment is to be made in a few days on the Versailles railroad, figure to yourself, says the Reforme, an enormous wheel, rive yards in diameter, between the spokes of which you place a horse with his rider. This large wheel being fixed on four ordinary wheels, placed on the rails of a railroad, it is sufficient to turn the large wheel to make the carnage advance. 13ut what motive force docs the inventor employ ? It is the horse placed in the interior of the wheel, and yoked, by means of two bars of iron placed perpendicularly under the axle. The horse, by drawing, causes the wheel to turn in the same manner as a mouse or a squirrel in a cage. In order topermit the horse to enter into this singular wheel, it has been found necessary to dig an excavation near the station of the railroad, into which the horse is let down. The inventor pretends that he can modify his wheel so as to admit three horses, and that in that case, the heaviest train may be propelled along a railroad with a velocity more rapid than that caused by steam. Spain. Our accounts front Madrid of the 1st instant, announce the arrival in that capital of Mr. Henry Lytton Bulwer, the new British Envoy. The entree of the British Envoy, Mr. II. L. Bulwer, in Madrid, gave rise to a rumor that the Queen Mother had come, but the direction of the carriages to the Embaiada Ingleea, in the Cnlle de Alcala (no longer the "Calle de la Duque de la Victoria," for Narvaez has changed all that,) soon convinced the most incredulous on the Puerta del Sol that Maria Christina was not one of the travellers. Well-informed people here believe that her journey is relinquished for the present, and state, as the best collateral evidence, that the lather, mother, and brother of Munoz, (who arrived here some time ago,) are preparing to return to Paris immediately. The Gazette of to-day contains the appointment of Don Francisco Martinez de la Rosa as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the King of the French. His brother Diego was, on the 27th ult.. appointed Director General of Ptisons, a noted favorite of Lopez (Don Jose Pindulles,) having been set aside to make room for him. These nominations, or rather acceptances of place under Narvaez, indicate a favorable change of opinion in the mind of Don Francisco, whoa week ago did not think it worth his while to ?D"fm loot ho uhnulrl oro 111 a 11 ri'l Vii I there, be recalled or sent adrift by those who might come inlo office at the head of some new intrigue or supplementary insurrection But now that the Cortes has been suspended, and " a strong government of fixed buyonetB" established, he has. we are assured, made up his mind that it is likely to be "all right" at Madrid until next quarter day at least. Meanwhile he follows the excellent precedent set by Senor Oiozugu, of taking his salary in advance. Apropoi of the latter fallen meteor, we learm that the new Minister for Foreign Affairs, Luis Gonzales Bravo, has addressed a note to Costa Cabral, requesting that he may be sent out of Portugal! An imprudent step in many respects, ns there is no saying how soon some individuals now high in power (or, at least, high in office,) may feel happy in the opportunity of" once more" enjoying a safe retreat in that country.

The uddress on the speech from the throne has been adopted. It is drawn up in a very moderate spirit. Some amendments, proposed by a small opposition, which demanded particular mention of the 115th Of September, were rejected by immense majorities. In the capital and its vicinity some excesses were committed. On the lltli an attempt was made to Ml fire to tin- hall of the National Assembly: but fortunately it was frustrated. On the 19th the hotel of the Minister for ForeignAfihirs was burnt down. The pajiersland archives were saved.

Tar Wool. Trad*?Jan 11 ?In reviewing the Wool tradn for the puat year, it is satisfactory to lie enabled to give a more satisfactory report than in oui last annual clr cular, which was marked by almost uniform depression and despondency. At the commencement of IB43, although stocks of the raw material were nut large, yet importers were subjected to such heavy losses from the low rat* of prices ruling in the consuming markets, that a very contracted importation lor the year was expected ; whilst the low price of provisions, and the generally favorable aspect of our commercial negotiations in the East, led to the hope of hii extended tiadn abroad, with increased means of consumption at koine. Both these anticipation* have been realized. With a diminished import, we hava experienced a considerable increased demand, both lor the home and foreign markets. During the early months of the year, the transactions were characterised by the utmost caution, both in the purchase of the raw material and the scrupulous avoidance of any accumulation ol goods on the part of the manufacturers. This continued up to June, prices fluctuating about A percent, with a moderate amount of business doing. About this period, the prospect of the approaching harvest being favorable, a lively action in business commenced,which has continued unabated to the present time. It is gratifying to remark, that, whilst the consumption Is greater tlian.peihsp*. eve, before known, the trade is healthy and legitimate, being principally to order, not Ihe result of speculative demand, and unaccompanied by any excess of stock of the manufactured article. There has been a good demand for flcotch wools since the clip, and we never remember, at this period of the year, so little remaining in farmers'hands or, indeed, in the country Notwithstanding the unusually large import into Liverpool, the market was quite bare ?
