ARRIVAL OF THS OVBHLAIO MAIL. MORE TROUBLE M SPAIN, &c. &e. The Atlantic express packet ship Siddons, Capt. Cobh, lias arrived from Liverpool with intelligence to the 11th ult. One of our famous news schooners, the well known clipper Teazer, boarded her at 5 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, twenty miles E. S. E. of the Highlands, in a thick fog. In consequence of this fog, our news captain was compelled to land a special messenger at Gravesend Bay, who came up overland, and arrived at this oflice at 4 o'clock yesterday morning, covered with perspiration and glory. We immediately published nearly a column of the news in one of our early editions, and sent it forth to the world in order to give the other New York papers a chance to get it into their editions for the benefit of every body. If, therefore, they have not ?li:_i?i _r - :? r....u puuiimicu any ui mis iiitciuKcuuc it ia iiu inuu of ours We did all we could for ihem. This news is of a highly interesting character.

The balance-sheet of the public income and expenditure for the year 1843, has been published by order of the House of Commons. It exhibits for the past year an income of ?52,582,817, and an expenditure of ?51,139,515. The radicals have lately been busy circulating a report that her Majesty is considerably in debt. Mr. Blewitt, M. P. for Monmouthshire, had the delicacy to nsk the question in the House of Commons on the 5th ult., when Sir Robert Peel denied that there was any truth in the rumor. Letters received from Varna, mention the total destruction of that city, by which a loss of four millions ot piastres has been cuused.

It consists of two shi|is of the line, the Angelo and Tripoli (another first rate being under orders to follow) and twelve gun-boats. Samuel Clegg, the inventor of the atmospheric railroad, has arrived at Berlin, where he has been invited by the Prussian government to direct the construction of an atmospheric railroad from the capital to Charlottenburg. The King of Hanover has pardoned another of the Gottingen State prisoners, Dr Lanbinger, now 60 years of age, who was condemned to fifteen years' imprisonment, of which he has passed seven in the House of Correction at Celle. Advices Irom Odessa state that the Russians have obtained very important advantages for their commerce from the Porte, the import duty upon goods into Turkey being fixed at 3 per cent on Russian fabrics, but seldom amounting to more than two per cent. The King of the Belgians gave a grand ball on the 24th at the Theatre of Brussels. The number of guests is stated at nearly 3(X)0; 60 pheusants were sent from London as a present by Prince Albert. British Parliament.?In the House of Commons on the 5th ult., to oucstionsputby Lord Monteagle, the Duke of Wellington stated that the government did not intend to propose any committee of inquiry relating to the Bank of England, because there wus sufficient information to legislate upon already before the House; and that they did intend to adopt measures, during the present session, for the renewal of the charter of the Bank of Ireland ui>on principles similar to those of the Bank of England. His grace further remarked that the renewal of the Bank ol Ireland charter depended on cir cumstances entirely different from those on which the renewal of the Bank of Kngland charter rests. Conspiracy or Tire Manchester Cotton Biinners against the Liverpool CorroN Brokers.? The recent advance in the price of cotton at Liverpool, has excited considerable apprehension among the cotton spinners of Manchester and the neighborhood, notwithstanding the advance that has taken place in the price of manufactured cloths. A meeting on the subject was held at Manchester, on Saturday, when not less than five hundred individuals were present. Mr. Robert Gardner, who had called them together, took the chair, lie suggested the working of only live days per week, and not to light up the mills from the 19th or 26th of this month, and that those Manchester men who had large stocks of cotton, should sell, at the present prices, to those who were without,in order to prevent the latter going into the Liverpool market,and giving higherpricea. Mr. Kdin'und A ah worth said, that the present speculation was owing to some of the London bankers and money lenders, whose circulars they had seen, offering to advance money for investment in cotton, if they could only find responsible parties willing to make purchases; and the payments were made through orders upon Liverpool bankers. There was a clans of men called brokers, in Liverpool, who Btood between the importers and the 04BufacturerB,who had a direct interest in encouraging this spirit of speculation. There had been many schemes suggested for doing away this evil, but it was unite clear thnt nothing could be done unless a sulhcirnt number of the manufacturers were to unite together for the purpose. Cotton belonging to Manchester men was imported into Liverpool and there sold; but it had been suggested that it should be brought to Manchester and there sold to the consumers, and that the trade should be kept from Liverpool during the next three or four months, and that the Manchester cotton should not t;o into the hands ot the JLivernooilimners tcnoers), .tnd the people of this neighborhood would have the satisfaction of knowing that their money went into the pockets of their own friends rather than into the hands of the brokers, bankers and money lender* of London and Liverpool. Mr. A. Hockley and Mr P. L. Hehrens also spoke. Mr. G. R. OnRppcll denounced the present mode of pHyiii?the Liverpool cotton brokers, which inade it the interest of the brokers to rob the manufacturers.? There were some brokers who were exceptions to ilie generality of their class, and were honorable men; but such was the tendency of the present i mode of paying them for purchasing cotton. Some i resolutions were passed, and a committee was apj pointed to mature a plan of action, and report to a meeting to be held on Friday.?Liverpool Mail, i Fib. 10. | View or thk British Government on tim Oregon Question.?It will be, perhaps, recollected . thut Mr. President Tyler in his message to Congress, on the 4th December last, stated that the tide of emigration was flowing from the United J State* to that part of the union beyond the Rocky mountains, called Oregon. I le, at the same time recommended that a line of forts nnd depots should ? k<i i-. * - lUit .AttlavB anil , I WC yniiBllUtlCU HI I'lUICCl IIIC ntuirin rniai nvnnuiv I emigration. He likewise proposed that courts of | justice should be established, and the laws and cus gMBggggPgtWg^gB^I"? I W Yf v mi i EW YORK, FRIDAY MO toms, fiscal und otherwise, of the republic, should be introduced for the benefit of the citizens. How far Congress will adopt any of these suggestions we cannot tell, but we see enough to convince us that the territory in question will be the source of uneasiness and contention between the British government and that of the United States.? The is admitted, have a right to make settlements on certain lands bounded on the westward by the Pacific Ocean, in conjunction, or rather in agreement, with the crox^i of England ; but they can do nothing more legally ; and certainly they have no right to sell land, or give luws, or map out districts, or assign any tenure of property 10 their citizens, or any other settlers in that country. IJut where, we shall possibly he asked, is this Oregon territory, and what is the extent of it? The term Oregon is of Indian origin, recently given by the Americans to the Columbia river. The territory itself lies between the parallels of 12 dog. and and 19 deg. north latitude. It is bounded on ihe east by the Rocky mountains, on the west by the Pacific ocean, and contains about 250,0110 square miles. The Columbia is the principal river, und is navigable for 125 miles, its width being in some places 25 miles, in others 7, and in no place, in that distance, less than a mile. This country originally belonged to Spain by the right of discovery; hut in 1790, by the Convention of the Escurial, a joint right was ceded to it by Spain to Great Britain. Up to this period Spain and England both claimed it, but the dispute was adjusted in the manner above described, and no other State had a right to form settlements or pursue any trade within its waters or boundaries. It is ituc iiiiti iiic ivmiTiciiii uuvenuiR'Ui hisii jmi 111 a claim founded on the frivolous pretext that her citizens had first explored the Columbia river?a fallacy so preposterous that it will not heat examination. In the year 1811), however, the United States concluded a Treaty with Spain, called the Florida treaty, whereby it was agreed that the northern boundaries of the Spanish possessions in America should he a line drawn from the source of the River Arkansas, along the 42d parallel of latitude to the Pacific, and the King of 8pain therefore ceded to the United States all his rights, claims and pretentions to any territories north of the said line. In 1828, when the authority of Spain had ceased in North America, the United States effected a treaty with the new Government of Mexico, whereby that power ulso admitted the 42d parallel to be the boundary line between the tcfritoriesof the two republics. The latest intelligence from Washington informs that Mr. President Tyler has advanced his claims, and asserts the right of the United States to the whole territory on the Pacific, not only that which Spain and Kngland held jointly between the 42d dcg. and the 19th deg. of north latitude, but actually to the 51st deg. which embraces that portion which this country has long held in undoubted possession. This, however, is only said to be a yankee trick upon the old pedlar practice that the more you uct the more you can abate with an a|>parenily good grace. The American Government have frequently resorted to this vile expedient, and we are sorry to say, with too much success. There nflwr u*:iV?inf nt*iin i ri iw rlnllurvt w 11 in mt lirtrrtiw. ill? them, anu repudiating the debt. The very fact that the United States deemed it expedient to obtain, or rather purchase, a title from Spain, is a proof that she placed no reliance on her own pretensions. Why seek by treaty what she has already possessed by right 1 This purchase decides the question. It puts the republic out of court by her own acts; but it does much more ; it establishes, by undoubted evidence, the full extent of her rights. For instance, Spain could not cede to the United Stutes more than she possessed herself. She had only a joint interest with England in the Oregon country. She could only sell or surrender such privileges as belonged to herself as a partner with England in the land. The Americans, therefore, are only placed in the position which the King of Spain formerly occupied. They have no right to form settlements in the Oregon territory without the consent of England, the wider partner ; and most unquestionably they have no rightto establish any form of government or code of laws in that country. Nor will she be permitted. When Lord Ashburton was deputed by Sir Robert Feel's government to make overtures for the settlement of the North KaHt Uoundary vexation, in which he succeeded so successfully and amicably, he received express instructions to maintain a dignified silence with respect to the Oregon question. This was all very well then; but we are much deceived if this silence can be observed anv longer. The Amen cans, ever alive to their own interest!*, are looking forward to the trade of the Pacific by the proposed railroad over the isthmus oi Panama, and it is natural that they should desire to possess the best, if not the only, harbors of refuge on the western side of their continent near to their own states. The Columbia river supplies this desideratum; and if we do not take care she will be in possession, by means of her troops of squatters, and legions of emigrants, of the most favorable and advantageous spots on the noble stream. But why should her Majesty's government not be equally alive to the interests of her subjects'? Out trade with China and the. East is of far more importance to ourselves, and the world at lurge, than any that the American republic are likely to engage in for the next fifty years, and it is constantly and rapidly increasing. Who knows, if the central communication were opened, what would be the amount of traffic from sea to sea over the American continent 1 The times we live in are times of gigantic effort, of marvellous discovery, of astonishing results. We cannot now stand still. _ We must be constantly looking forward and anticipating out wants, thereby creating auxiliaries for future advances. The Oregon territory question must, therefore, be settled forthwith. It will be much easiet to effect this now than two or three years hence.? Liverpool Mail, Feb, 16. Ireland. Our accounts from Dublin are to the evening o! the 9th ult. STATK TRIALS. O'Connell finished his speech at -1J o'clock, on Monday afternoon, Gth ult. On 1 ijksoay, 6th?Twentieth day?The court met at half past ten o'clock, when, amidst considerable discussion, several witnesses were examined, md papers nut m to prove that Mr. O'Connell't r? t?nl ? ?pnnv? nirtimsf flit* :irt nf union wi*r#? onlv repetitions of what lie had saul :f0 or 40 years ago ; that the. arbitration system was adopted by I lie hh> :iety oflh'riends, andjito objection taken to its legality ; and that Mr. O't'onnell had always expressed the greatest respect for the law and constitution, and of his wish that the struggle in which the repealers were engaged nnght he carried on in n (tenceehle manner. This closed the case for the defence. On Wednesday, 7th.?Twenty-first day.?The court assembled at ten o'clock. The SolicitorOen' ral addressed the jury in reply to the case for the traversers, lie spoke of the arduous nature of the duty he had to perform, the talent, eloquence, and ingenuity of the counsel against whom he hud to contend, tite consequence of'the verdict as affect tag the peace, tranquillity, and happiness of the country, the obligations of the jury to find a verdict according to tite evidence, uninfluenced by anything political, sectarian, or religious, by favor or affection, or any consideration but the truth and justice of the ease. He ulluded to the eight different but inconsistent speeches for the traversers, all ol them, however, coinciding marvellously in the absence of any reference to the evidence. It they had not violated the law they must he acquitted ; if they had, what sort of defence was it to make that the government had delayed to prosecute them f No connivance was resorted to lor the pnrpos" of seducing them into crime, but, on the contrary, very warning was given which could have been given?every intimation was held out, that this course would in the end he resorted to. The proloi-iifion oould not havn lienn hrniiL'ht forward earlier ; it wan not a prosecution against the people of Ireland for exercising A legal right, it was not against those unfortunate deluded people who attended the varioun meetings through the country, nor was it an attempt to put down free discussion. They were not prosecuting any person for his political or religious opinions; * * and he denied ?he right of any person to attempt to bring about such an object by the means charged in that indictment. Nor was that a prosecution against the liberties of the press. It was quite true that three gentlemen proprietors of newspapers, were in the indictment, tint these arc not included as such proprietors, hut as conspirators. Why were not the sditors of other liberal papers, who, ns ihey nil knew, advocated the same views through out the country, as Mr. Barrett, and Mr. Duffy, and Dr. Gray, included in that prosecution! Because they did not become the agents or instruments in carrying out the designs of the traversers. Where iwo or more persons concur in the execution of a common design, and use any improper means lor the attainment ol it, they are guilty of conspiracy. It did not require that the proceedings on the pari of the accused should be private in order to make them liable to the charge for which the traverser* were prosecuted. No mailer whether their proceedings were open or secret, the charge of conspiracy was equally sustained ^whsn the evidence )RK ] RNING, MARCH 15, 1844 satisfied the jury of one or other of two things? namely, nn attempt to do that which was illegal in itself, or to accomplish, by illegal means, a thing lawful and legitimate, liie crown said that the traversers had conjured together to do that by intimidation which should he done hv the unbiassed will of the legislature itself. The indictment charged that the traversersh id entered into a common plan to effect by multitudinous meetings, speeches, and seditious articles published in newspapers, that which should he the result of discussion and deliberation in the House of Commons, und be finally settled by an aet of parliament. It was uhsurd to suv, that because newspaper reporters were present at these meetings, and that everything was done openly and above hoard, there could be no conspiracy. \Vhv, one of their principal purposes was to disseminate those speeches, and give to the world an account of the great array of physical force that all these meetings presented.? lie entered at some length into the nature of the law of conspiracy, lie did not contend for a moment that meetings to any amount, when held for legitimate purposes, were illegal, or that speeches made fairly for the propagation of political opinions were illegal; hut what he contended for was, that meeiings held ostensibly for cne purpose, where discontent, dissatisfaction, and disaffection to the constituted authorities of the country, were illegal, and that these were the means which the traversers hud recourse to for the purpose of accomplishing that which should he done by an net of the legislature. He, on the part of the crown, alleged tlmt the traversers hud excited animosity and ill-will between ditlercnt classes of her Majesty's subjects, hut more particularly between lliose ol England and Ireland.? lie alleged, too, that they attempted to excite in iiir army u spirit 01 discontent, ana inai tnese, too, were amongst the means resorted to in order to bring about their ultimate object. They were told that all the evidence went to show the peaceable character of all their meetings ; no doubt it did, for it was part of the conspiracy to be peaceable? for it was by such means only that a plan of the kind could he carried out. It was, therefore, absurd to say, that because all their proceedings were peaceable there could be no conspiracy. The charge against the travcrserswas not for assembling, but they were prosecuted for procuring assemblages of persons, and uttering and publishing seditious and inflammatory speeches and articles, for the attainment of one common purpose. Pile crown lastly charged the traversers with combining togetherto cast discredit and odium upon the legal tribunals and administration of justice throughout the country. The charge vyas not that they had caused arbitrators to be appointed here and therp to settle isolated disputes?no, the charge was that they, or the association ot which they wore members, assumed the prerogative of the crown, by appointing persons to net in the room of those who had derived thaii authority from the Queen's commission. They could find guilty on any one of the counts, or if they thought that the charge was not sustained against any one or more of the traversers, and proved against others, they would acquit or find guilty accordingly. He then explained why it was that the nroseeutions had been delayed. Had tliev interfered earlier the outcry would have been greater, umlfctlie proof more difficult. Warnings had been repeatedly given, in the speech of Sir Robert Peel on the 9th of May, in that of the Queen on the prorogation of parliament, and the dismissal of magistrates, but government did not proceed against them till they found the agitation an evil of great magnitude, and really dnngeious.? Had they brought in a coercion bill, it would have been said that they wished to suppress the free discussion of political subjects. The questionhad been put, why, if the meetings were illegal, were they not prosecuted as such, and why were not the persons present included in the indictment 1 llis answer was, that the government, finding the existence of a conspiracy, felt it their duty to arrest its progress in that form, apd bring Injustice, not the subordinate instrumentsby which it was intended to effect its object, but those who were most prominent in the agitation. The conspiracy, lie contended, was proved by the number of meetings?their continuity, and their unity of purpose. Evidence was given of meetings in Wuterford, in Oalwuy, in Mullingax, lit Tarn, and in other parts of Ireland, and if they were to he prosecuted as unlawful assemblages, the consequence would he, that hills of indictment would have to he sent before the several t-rramj Juries, because they should he tried in the counties where they assembled, and the question could not be under discussion in that, the Inchest > court of crimical judicature in Ireland. It was wronp to have insinuated, if not directly charged, that the jury were selected by the crown, or that exclusion was the consequence of religious opinions. He would apk the jury, as men of common sense, would it he right, or lair, or impartial,{to allow members of the association to sit in judgment on their own leaders'? or should not the crown have taken cure to have a jury free from any undue bias! Mr. Sliiel sought to make anotherpoint in reference to the constitution of the jury. He i said they were Protestants, sworn to decide a cure in which the traversers at the bar were Roman Catholics, and he called upon the jury, in order ' that their verdict might he satisfactory, to make compensation for the disadvantage under which the traversers labored. Mr. Sheil Baid what ho wished to convey was, that the jury should be more solicitous, as sixtyfive names were suppressed Iront the panel. The Solicitor CJeneral deprecated any Httempt to influence tfie jury by a fear that their verdict would be liable to imputation on religious or political grounds. lie would make the traversers a present of the acts and speeches in 1840. '41 und '-12, and for argument would concede, tliat, so far as they went, there was nothing exceptionable. Whatever the original objects or conduct of those who established the Association in July, 1840, he contended that the persons promoting its designs in 1813 pursued a course utterly at variance with the law and constitution. The learned gentleman then proceedI ed to animadvert on the speeches of the counsel for the defence, and to comment upon the various documents, until five o'clock, when the Court adi lourned. On Thursday, Sth, 22d day, ut the sitting of their lordships, thetsolieitort renerul resumed his address Ah a high legal effort, this S|ieech has not been often exceeded. In calm dignity, moderation, profound knowledge of the law, great powers of reasoning, wonderful clearness, and great simplicity, it stands pre-eminent, and all the brilliant flashes of Mr. Hiiel's oratory, and the wit and eloquence of Mr. Whiteside, have waned away before it?if has, indeed, to use a vulgar phrase, most effectually "taken the gilt off the traversers' gingerbread, and the tinsel defences and decorations with which i lie ingenuity of counsel had shrouded their case, have been torn away, shred after shred, by the.euruest und well directed attacks of Mr. Greene. I laving proceeded with the meetings as far as Mull.ighinast, the learned gentleman said he feared he would not he able to terminate his case that evening, arid the court was adjourned till 10 o'clock on Friday. Although every caution should be taken in alluding to such a subject as the probable decision of the jury, it may lie stated that there are many very curious rumors afloat as to the nature of their verdict, many gosaippers strenuously asserting that there will not he any at all, and others?as their wishes lead them?kindly arranging the matter in their own minds for th? crown or the traversers. The Chief Justice and Mr. Justice Crai* rton, are most assiduous in taking notes. On Friday the Oth, the twenty-third day, the Hohcitvr General continued his address this mptning at ten o'clock, and concluded about two. Tim Chief Justice then proceeded to charge the ;ury.

The legal proceedings to which yon refer are now in progress before a competent tribunal, and I ain unwilling to intorrunt the administration of iiislire according to law. it is at all times my anxious desire that any grievance of which my people can justly complain, should he speedily redressed; and f confide in the wisdom of the Parliament of the United Kingdom,for the adoption of such legislative measures as may be necessary for that purpose."*.

Mr. O'Connell spoke on Monday in defence of himself, and, as he justly observed, of the whole Irish nation, who are his clients, lie was laboring under the iffect* of a severe cold, and his delivery was consequently far inferior to what it would have otherwise been ; but the ma terinl of the speech was the best thut could possibly be employed on such an occasion It wus mild and conciliatory, at the Name time that it did not manifest any fears us to the result. He gave a complete epitome ol the history and wrongs of Ireland, and illustrated, liy historical facta connected with the days of the volunteer* and the legislative independence of the country, w hat would be likely to result from similar causes upon u future occasion, lie made use of a great variety ol documents and statistics, and hence his speech was almost impossible tu report.with accuracy, considering that it was necessary to have it written out as fast as it was sjiokrn The London p8|>ers hud ten reporters each on it,and some ol the Dublin papers twelve ; so that in twenty minutes or half un hour after he ceased speaking, it was either in t\ pe in Dublin or on its way to Loudon, to he set up therw for the London journals on the next night. I must say thHt the exertions and enterprise of lioth the Knglish and Irish press 011 this memorable occasion,are not the least remarkable ciroum stances connected with the history of the State trials and of the age we live in ()'( onnell's speech, as wrll as those of Shiel aud Whiteside, must make an impression amongst the millions, no matter what the verdict may be. It is tiie universal opinion that the cause of repeal must be greatly advanced by the proceedings that have taken place since these trials commenced. The Attorney-Gene ral has coudtictud himself rather peaceably since his challenge to kit/.gihliou; but he has lieeu heard to say privately that he will not brook the slightest insult Irom any one, high or low, let the consequences be what they may : so that, if any of the judges use language disnleiisiiiir to him. it mav hntmen thut he will send the ol lender a note, railing upon him to apologise or appoint a friend ! It is said that his dismissal is now certain, hut I do not believe it Tho government, however, calculate on his resignation, but in this they will be disappointed : indeed, there was a rumor prevalent to day that he intended, it dismissed, to join the ]le|>eal Association. This would not he more wonderful than other acts of his within the last six months. The Solicitor-Ueneral occupied the court the whole'of the day, as well as yesterday. His address, although characterised by some(hitterne*s of feeling, was dull and insipid beyond endurance. Through the course of the day, the liar, boxes, und the gallery, became almost deserted, and several of the Jury fell asleep whilst he was reading orer speeches fiom newspapers that have been read ami commented upon by almost all the counsel who hail preceded him. To he serious with regard to the Attorney General, I believe it is now almost certain that, as soon as these trials shall end, he will cease to he AttorneyGeneral It was intimated to liirn this week that the government expected his resignation, and that if it was not given his dismissal would follow. 1'oor fellow, the people really pity him bow ; for to tell the truth, he is a most amiable man in private life, excepting always his strong political prejudices and anti-Catholic leeliiigs.. His father, the late Baron Smith, was a whig, and one of th* most learned and enlightened men that ever udorned the Irish bench. Yet he, in the latter end of his days, manifested great littleness of mind by goiag* over to the ranks of the tories, on account ol an attack that u-na made tinon him ill the House ol Conimom by O'Connell, on t\u; ground that ho used to | try prisoners by night, and at a timn when ho was ufter indulging too Ratty in MttM ptIDCh, to which lie *?? particularly iinrtial. i have reason to know that the change in his principle* which had thus apparently taken place, caused liim considerable pain, and I nave no doubt tended to shorten his days. lie was until then, ouuot the most popular judges in Ireland, and nothing could exceud the pnin he felt at finding he had alienated the affections of the people. It was he who tried the charge of seduction that w as brought ugainat the celebrated Father Muguiie; and never did any man labour more assiduously to allay the'prejudices of the orange jury he had to address, and obtain (i verdict of acquittal ut the hands of men who were supposed to have gone into the hex w ith a full determination to hraud the champion of catholicity with infamy: he felt that the charge hud its origin in r conspiracy to put down the opponent of l'ope; and all the line subtlolies of his mind were exerted to keep the iinefof demarcation clear between the advocate and the judge. The rev. gentleman was acquitted through his menus, and this added grcutly to his former popularity ; hut alter the attack made upon hint by O'Connell he affected to become tory, and thereby last Ins own esteem aud the affections of the people: he was. w ithal, n kindhearted, benevolent creature as ever existed; and some of the best traits of his character may he found in his son, notwithstanding his irritubilitjr of temper. A report was prevalent to-day that, as soon as the Sub cltorlieneral closed his case, the court would adjourn to Monday, in order to give thair lordships time to confer together as to their charge I believe it is customary, in a trial at bar, for each of the judges to give his opinion upon the matter at issue, in case of a disagreement amongst them ; but, where they all agree, the cuarge is delivered by the Chief Justice alone In the present instance, it is more than probable that a difference exists ; and, if so, we shall have a charge from each. Sn *n n'rlnrk ?The court adlourned at fivc. the Solid tor-General having than announced that he would not ho able to close his address until abeut mid-day to-morrow. It was reported that lie was to he followed by Mr. Sergeant Warieu Jon the part ofjthc crown ; hut 1 nave heard to-night that such will not he the case. It is, then, very likely that there will he an adjournment to Monday, when the judges will commence their chrrgcs, which cunnof occupy less than two day s ; so that a verdict, if any, may tie expected on Tuesday or JWednesday next.

We have received Paris pnpers of Thursday, Sth tilt., together with (.ierman and Spanish correspondence, and additional communications from India and the Levant. The alarming intelligence from Spain occupied the entire Paris press on Thursday. The hrief conversation which occurred between Lords Aberdeen ami Hroughum in the House of Lords on Monday, touching the treaties of 1831 and 1833, supplies to the French Opposition journals a pretext lor a further expression of their rancour against this country, while affecting to contend for the independence sf their national flag. Owing to reports that the government was favorable to the execution of the projected railroads by companies, the funds rose in Paris oil Thursday.

General Shelly, Political Chief of Barcelona, has been appointed Governor of Madrid. According to the ImparciHl of Barcelona, Prim received Ins passport for Madrid, on the 2Stli. lie has been innde (luvernor jof the penal colony of Ccuta, in Africa. Accounts from Madrid to the 2d inst., report another insurrectionary movement ut Alicent, Valencia, nnd Hnnlander. Sixty persons, including some of note, had been arrested in the capital. Madrid, Feb. 2.?The insurrection in Alicnnte, and the arrests in Madrid, still excite a painful degree o! interest. Considerable mystery is thrown over the proceedings, and even the ministerial papers contradict each other as to the names and numbers of the prisoners, so thst at ties moment it is not known for certain if Don Miguel firs y Carem is in prison or has eseni ed. It is admitted that neither Augustin Argnellei nor General Serrano lupj been arrested, anil the government journals declare that there was no idea of seizing on fomjitim Maria Lores. although bis house was one of the first Heurehcfi on the eventful night before last, when In: fortunately happened to lie really not at home, and still very prudently remains absent, despite the complimentary assurances of confidence and respect on the part of the powers that be. They assure us also that there was no idea ol arresting Genernl Concha, "who happened to ride out of town tiiRt morning at daybreak to visit a friend in Ar injuez;" nor was any injurious suspicion intended towards his brother the colonel, "who was merely separated temporarily from tinexercise of his military functions, to fulfil a commission ol inspection of cavalry, and who returns to-day to take charge of his regiment." < 'iir Madrid letters of the 2d inet., bring little news. A division of troops had left on the evening of the 1st for Valencia. General Cordova, who commanded it, was suspended hv order of Narvuex just as the division was leaving town. The 2d being a close holyday, no business was done in the funds.

Nothing new had, however, transpired from ihe frontier; but from all pari * of tlie colony the reports reflecting the state <,l tho crops, were in an unusual degree favorable.

Tlie intelligence from China conies down to the 1st of December. Little had occurred worthy of notice subsequent to the fires which consumed the factories on the 25th of October. The markets at Canton hud become rather more favorable. The British consuls laid arrived at Atnoy and Shunghae,where trade was dull, as the arrange, litems wete then completed The Chinese authorities at Ningpo, declined granting permission for the importation of goods there until the consul hail arrived, and the duties were settled. They ttre said to have been alarmed by an imperial chop, which they had received from IVkin, ordering that no business should be carried on unles.-i the consul was there. AtChusan the British system { of government without squeezing the inhabitants had conciliated their attachment, and they upi>enred to regret the approaching departure ot the I'.iitish troops. Some Americans, as if courting a cahse|of quarrel with the Chinese,had ventured upon excursions into tlie interior; this practice had procured from the British Plenipotentiary a declaration to the Chint se,Commissioner,that he should by no means countenance such proceeding, and that orders should lie given to the consuls to ' ti c?: -- ,.-.i IlilVf ill!

Ilumi . spoke of some differences between Sir H. 1'ottinner and the British Admiral "and General. Sir llenrv Poltinger is said to he anxious to get home, and Colonel Outrain has been talked of as his intended successor. India. By the Indian mail of the 1st of January, letters and papers have been received to that date from Bombay. British India is tranquil, and likely to continue so. The great clamor against Lord Ellenborough had subsided, and his lordship was growing very popular. The news from the kingdom of the Sikhs r< presents that country as far from being tranquillized It appears that Golah Singh, the cider broth*r of Dhyan Singh, old II unjeet's favorite minister, who was assassinated in September last, had come from his mountain fastnesses at Lahore, under pretence of supporting his nephew, 1 It-era Singh, who now governs there, under the name ol the young Sovereign Duleep. and that his arrival hud not produced the expected results. The young minister is described as giving large sums of money to the common soldiers, in order to retain them in some or <lrr, while his uncles are busy in plundering Ihc trpnsurcB of the Sikh government, nn<l carrying away the jewels and articles of value to the mountains. The state of the country is described us bordering upon anarchy. The Allghan government is as feeble ns even in the hands of Uost Mainlined, and intrigues are afloat of varioiiH kinds, in the midst of these intrigues, [lost Mahomed appears to he unable to make the conternplnted attack on l'eshawur, al though it is no longer defended by the Enro]>eaii Generals of the Lions of Lahore. All the French officers have left the service of the Sikhs, so lliat it is highly probable the boasted prowess of those troops will soon become little more than the courage of rabble, if Akhhai?Khan, who is governing .lellelahad with the greatest cruelty, should dare to attack the Sikh provinces to the west of the Indus, ll is doubted hy the Aflghuns themselves that Lost Mahomed, or his son will make un attempt on l'eshawur. The arrangement* of Lord Ellenhorough for the subjugation of the state of Gwalioa, have been highly suecessful. The sickness in Srinde continued to he the source of great comment. The government appeared resolved in retaining the country, which is now Itanauil. At Sukkur there had been much sickness, but it apjieared to be diminishing. rhe Army of Excise was ready near Agra, under the orders ol the Commander-in-Chief, Sir llugli Gougli. The first brigade, led by (ieneral Valiant, was ordered to move towards Dhoolpoor, half way to Gwalior; it marched on the 12th, and the rest ot the army moved in the same direction on the following clay. The intelligence reached Gwalior, and uioduced alarm. The young Kainh, who wan chosen to be heir lo the last Sovereign hy the Bhaee, took refuge in ?lie camp of the Governor-General, who is now completely master of the whole kingdom. It is lio|>ed liv many of the moat enlightened inen in India tliHt Ins lordship will now adopt the plan of removing from the wretched peasantry, the horrible yoke under which they have long groaned. The success of Lord Kllenhorough at Gwalioa will, it iaexpected, lead him noon lo settle the intricate question of the Piinjaub. At Bombay the cold senson in advancing rapidly. An immense amount of shipping has of late arrived from England; seventy vessels, varying from *00 to 1*00 tons, having come into port in the course of the month. Freights have, in consequence, declined rapidly. Trade generally, in fact, is dull, and little business doing.
