Nothing later from India?news from that quarter having been anticipated by the Herald a few days ago. There appears to be very little news of consequence. No change iu Cotton. The steam ship Hibernia arrived at Liverpool 011 the 14th. She carried out the intelligence of the disaster on board the Princeton. O'Connell had eaten two tremendous dinners? cue at Birmingham and the other in London, the latter on the 12th ult. They who profess to have accurate intelligence * with re.iard to court secrets. state that her Mnieutv Victoria's accouchement may be confidently looked for about the beginning of July. Louis Philippe and Court are to visit England in September next. Ex-Queen Christina had been received with the utmost enthusiasm in Spain. Deaths.?-Sir Henry Ilalford is dead. Col. O'Rielly, C. B., is also dead. The General Diet of Hungary have adopted, without any discussion, by a majority of forty-one votes against three, a motion for the emancipation of the Jews. The price of potatoes has recently been doubled at Lancaster, in consequence of the injury caused by the late frost. Vessels Loading.?We find, by the Customhouse list, that no fewer than 249 ships, most of them of latge tonnage,are loading for foreign ports, and our own possessions and colonies abroad. Of coasting vessels loading the number is also greater than usual at any one time, being about H>0.?Liverpool payer, March 9. Literature.?Hugh Murray has issued his work on the history, industry, commerce, and institutions of Amerjca. British Parliament.?In House of Commons, ivinrcn ii, ivir. u uonneli. presented forty petitions from dtlFerent parts of Ireland for the repeal of the legislative union between the two countries, lie then gave notice that on an early day alter Easter, he would move for leave to bring in a bill to deline the law of conspiracy, (Hear, hear) and the evidence applicable thereto; also, that he would after Easter move for leave to bring in a bill to repeal all the acts upbn the relation of landlord and tenant in Ireland passed since the union, and to substitute other provisions upon the subject. Mr. JIi'mk moved for a "select committee to examine into the present state of the tobacco trade, and to inquire what effects have been produced by the changes in the laws relating to it; and whether any, and what legislative measures, compatible with the general interests of the country, may he advisable, in order to promote the trade or to cneck smuggling in tohacco; and to report their observations thereupon to the house. The honorable member said that his great object was to put un end to smuggling, to benefit the trade, and protect the revenue. He had no ail'ection lor the article of tobacco. He detested it in the highest degree. He never used himself to it in any way.? [Laughter] lie had no love or affection for the article, but his only object was to prevent smugging. Altera few words from the Chancellor of Exchequerand Mr. T. Baring, the motion was agreed to. Tiie American Steam Frigate Missouri.? This once splendid, but ill-fated vessel, for a time the priJe of the American nation, built at an enormous expense, to transmit their first embassy to China, and to strike the minds of the Chinese with the power and magnitude of the Americans, was, as is generally known, accidentally destroyed by lire, in the Bay of Gibraltar, six months since.? The American Consul advertised for parties to undertake to raise the wreck, lying in but six lathoms water, and engaged a party at ?'7 per iln.y j alter two months unsuccesslul experimenting, further attempts were abandoned, and the wreck advertised for sale. At this juncture the Wizard, of London, Captain W. Marshall, entered the buy. returning to Scio from England, having been titled with |>owerful steam engines, air pumps, and condensing apparatus, for the express purpose of diving into 36 fathoms water! A bargain was at length concluded for ?4500,and theWizard now only waits the coming fine weather to commence ojierations against the immersed leviathan. It is expected it u ill be a most profitable job for the contractors ; the boilers alone, being of stout Conner, are eonsi tiered worth from ?10,000 to ?12,000 old metal; and the facilities for operating against the engines and boilers are very great, the decks having been entirely destroyed.?Pretton Guardian. Tiie Messrs. Fiei.oen Brother* ani> the Income-tax.?Considerable interest has been created in the commercial circles of Manchester by the sudden distraint made upon the Messrs Fielden for about :t()(V. income tax, nlleged to be due from the firm. As it is already known, the Messrs. Fielden returned their Income-tax papers *'011;" but the commissioners, not being satisfied with the return, assessed them in about 30CV. The Hon. Member from Oldham, as the senior partner of the concern, appealed against the decision of the Commissioners and upon onth at Koehdale confiimed the correctness of the return. He was then told iliat the matter should be further considered. There the matter rested till Tuesday, when, to the astonishment ol his brothers, a sheriff's oilicer walked into their works at Todmonden, and took possession of the whole premises. This proceeding created considerable excitement in Todmorden. Finding the feeling that prevailed in Todmorden, t.hey gave up dossession, and went straight oft to Manr heater, and took possession of the warehouse. Immediately on their appearance, Mr. Thomas Fielden gave orders that no more busilicas should be transacted until the aflair was settled; and with a view of carrying out these orders, refused to nllow any goods to p ss either in or out of the premises. In this state the warehouse still remains, and the officers keep possession. Mr. Fielden adheres to his previous resolution, and is determined not to pay the tax; and the officers^by mr uiurit (ji un-tuiiiiiimniuiu-rs, are ueicriiuneu to soil for the amount, and have issued the following ( advertisement in the local paper*:?"To rnerehants and other*? Exempt front duty?By Mr. Joseph Lale, on Monday, the llth day of March, lH4l,on the premises, So. 21 Peel street, Cannon street. Manchester, a large quantity of gray domestics and sheeting. May he viewed the morning of sale, which will commence at 11 o'clock in the forenoon; and for further particulars apply to the auctioneer, No. 4 Princess street, Manchester." The affair has created much interest in Manchester; but of course does not affect the credit of the firm, as ] it is well known it is one of the richest houses in ' Lancashire. The Income Tax.?The most important event i of the week is Sir Robert peel's intimation that i the Income Tnx is to he continued. He gave it on < Monday evening. The subject of the Army Est!- | mates was under discussion. In the course of it, Mr. Williams observed?"The llightllon. Baronet ' made a promise that he would give up the Income Tax next year," when Sir Robert Peel angrily interrupted htm with,"! never made such upromise." < This is enough. We nil know what it means. We are in for it. A Tory may promise good, and forget to do it. But let him threaten evil, and he never tails to perforin it. Let the middle classes ponder over the matter ? Liverpool Chronicle, March !>. Liverpool Cotton Speculations.?The report o| the Liverpool cotton brokers gives the sales for the week ending last uigltf at It),(Kg) bales. Of this reduced quantity 4,100 ar? admitted to have been t ik?'ti on speculation ; sn that the purchases by the trade were under 12,000 bales, not quite one-half 1 of t'-c current consumption at the rate o. the average of the past year. We have much pleasure in ' being able to give nn unqualified approval of the j conduct pursued by the cotton manufacturers on ( this occasion, than we have ever experienced in , condemning and censuring their proceedings in j many other respects, which we have too often felt . !9B8*BBa$5ae?gge!wesieoeMeee*P*58n*B* E N E f it our duty to do. Perseverance only for a slior time longer m the saint* course will lie perfectly certain to accomplish the object of putting down i monster speculation, which in no shape or forn could be b?neficial to liritish interests. For tlieii encouragement to persevere, we call tlieir uttentioi to the fact that the plan proposed by the Chaucello of the Kxcheijuer for the reduction of the Three and-a-llalf per Cents, is such us to require no con ' . .* - ' 1 " fu|.|wu iitiiu me uaiiK 01 cmgiana ny en (urged Usues; and the speculators who have culcu luted on circumstance as a security that n< check could for a long period he given to thei credit, niuy find their mistake sooner than they an ticipated. This very gentle hint may suflice for thi present.? London Standard, March !>. The Indian Battles.?The overland mail, whic! arrived last week, brings accounts of two very des perate battles, fought and won by two Anglo-Indiur armies, tinder the command of Lieutenant Gene ral Pir Hugh Goueh and Major General John Grey at a few miles distance from Gwalior, one of tlx most celebrated fortresses in the East, and the ca pital of the territory formerly held bv the grea chief Pcindia. The object of the military move menta which produced these battles was to upliolt the regency established at the_ death of Sctndia and ultimately, the authority of the youthful liei; to the 8cindian dominions against the intr.gues o Scindia's widow, the Maharanee, and one of hei creatures, who had deposed the regent, and gained over the army, composed of many thousands ol j those brave but turbulent soldiers, who, during the life of Pcindia, carried on so desperate u struggle against the Anglo-Indian armies. Foi sotne length of time the whole of the Scindian territory, which liorders on the British dominium at many points, had been in a state of complete an uri-uy, <iiiu 11 wiin in |iui mi ena 10 mis uangeroiii* state of things, as well as to uphold the authority of the regent and the young Prince, that the Dritish armies advanced. It will be seen that they encountered a most desperate resistance at all points, but that they triumphed nver it, und succeeded in establishing some thing like order in the Sciudiun territory, which still, however, contains about lout millions of us turbulent subjects as are to be met with between the Indus and Calcutta. The Coventor < reneral, Lord Lllenborough, was present at the beginning of the principal battle, and showed, by his conduct, that a man may be a great coxcomb and'yet no coward, though it says much more foi his courage than his prudence, that he should have exposed himself where his presence could do no good and his death (owing to his official rank) might have done much mischief. Ireland. In sonte parts of Connauglit,especially in Culwny, the humbler classes are suffering greut distress?a state of tilings rather unusuul at this season. The Galway Vindicator contains a very afflicting statement on this subject. "Whole families (says that journal) are without any support except a lew stones of potatoes amongst them, and hundreds of others have none at all. What is to become of the people in summer,if ibis be their condition at present! An appeal for assistance is to be made to the Covment. Dublin, March5.?There was "something" in the transactions at Conciliation Hall yesterday, which serves to show that the "leading repealer" will be kept to his trumps, and sternly resisted if lie should make the attempt to convert the agitation into an article of political merchandise. A f;entleman named Harry moved the following resoution, which was unanimously agreed to: "That die marked thanks of this association are eminently due to the Libera! members of the House of Commons, and to that portion of the Hritish people who, by their reception of Mr. O'Counell, have maniifstea their disapproval ol the arbitary steps taken to suppress public opinion in Ireland, and that, while we are firmly resolved never to relax our efforts for the repeal of the Legislative Union, until the restoration of our domestic Parliament, we are equally determined to preserve in the same I peaceful and constitutional course that has won I for us their respect and sympathy." Dimmer to O'Conwku. at (iAnnr.m Theatre.? Last night (March 1'J) a dinner was given at Covent Warden Theatre to O'Connell. " to show," as tho announcements expressed it, " (he admiration entertained by Knglishmen lor his constant and consistent advocacy ol the rights and privileges ol Irishmen, for more than 4o ye ars." The Pit ot'the theatre was hoarded over so as to make it on a level with the stage, and live long tables, with tw o slips occupying the bend of the boxes, making seven tables in all, were spread in that part of the house. There were six cross tables and ten long tables spread on the stage, besides the grand table, at which sat the chairman, the guest (Mr. O'Connell,) anil several noblemen, members ol Parliament, and others. The decorations of the portion of the arena behind thu proscenium remained the same as they were oil the occasion of the late Hnt Ma?qui The chairman sat in the centre of the stage, with the chief guests oil his right und left At the back of, and immediately over the chair, suspended from the c-eiling, there was a brilliant illumination of variegated lamps, representing the rose, the thistle, Hnd the shamrock, underneath which appeared, in front of the raised orchestra, the word " O'Connell," in variegated lamps. On the light ot the device was the word " Ireland," and on the leti the word "Justice," also in variegated lamps. At the hack ol the chair was the retiring-room, over which was the orchestra, containing 30 vocal and instrumental i>erfoimers, uu der tho direct on of Mr. U. S'ambury. The great sallr, formed by the boarded pit and the stage, was illuminated by 30 elegant ormou.'u chandeliers, in addition to the great chandelie.r suspend) d from the centre ol the theutre, und the smaller chandeliers suspended over each box in the dress-circle The stage was adorned by mirrors at the centre and the side. The w hole of the boxes were appro printed to ladies, and every place was tilled. The galitrii s were also densely crowded. About 1,11X1 person sat down to dinner, and the effect of the whole theatre when thus brilliantly tilled was most imposing Owing to the excelfence of the airangements, no confusion whatever took place. At a few minutes before ti o'clock, thu chairman and the'other chiet guests entered tho room, accompanied by Mr. O'Connell. On the honorable and learned gentleman's appearance, he was received with a general burst of cheering -from all parts of the house The toast?"Health and long life to Daniel O'Connell"? was received with the same enthusiasm that attended the first mention of Mr. O'Council's name. The cheering and waving of liandkvrchiefs continued for some minutes. Mr O'Coxmem. (alter the cheering wi'h which he was greeted hnd subsided,) rose, and ' poke as follows I pro test to you this is the first time in a long and variegated life that, with truth I may say, I feel unmanned?1 lee) overpowered.

(Cheers) Oh! how ardent must he your love of justice. Oh, how steady uml severe yout hatred for judicial partiality How you must delight in seeing justice rendered with the same intensity that you hate the practice of partiality and injustice! What are my claims upon your sympathy 1 That I am the victim of injustice?simply because the law has lieen violated in my per*on. simply because those in power have practiced infinity, and you who have integrity and manliness know hew to hate them. (Cheers) Y'ea, you ore able to turn defeat into victory (cheers) ; and to make conviction not a source of punishment hut of tn U til ph. (Cheers.) Von make me glad that I have liei n convicti d It is no exaggeration to use that expression I use it in all the sincerity of my heart, because you have shown u sympathy in Kngland for Ireland; you have convinced me, not reluctantly, to be sure, but with some difficulty, that there is a higher mind animating the masses of the middle classes, and the better part of the higher classes in Kngland, which teaches me that we wore horn to he united in affection and in interest ?horn to he combined against the world, ami that we have no enemies hut those who are enemies of both. (I'beers ) Yes, I do delight in the events that have taken place I think they will tend to great good in loth branches of the country . I I atn sure of this, that the people ot Ireland will h#ar with gratitude, to lie extinguished only with their lives, ot the manner in w hich I have been ri ceived lately in more popular assemblies than one, and in that brilliant assem hlage that it now before me. (Cheers) Oh! what a scene is here to-night. When I see the rank and station, when I contemplate the wealth and the importance, when I see the manly determination, ami the kindly glisten of the friendly eye. when I behold those beings that seem to turn itto (airy lend, those sylphs uml celestial being* ani meting and smiling upon us,I do rejoice that ut any ineon veniencn to myself 1 have liehchf such a transcendent spectacle. (Cheers.) They have convicted me; hut you ask how and of w hatt I am here to tell you of what They have convicted me not of a crime defined or definite?not of anything you can read in law hooks, hut af something the judges have spelt out of those law bunks, ?nd put together to lorm a monster indictment It Is literally so [Considerable interruption hero took place awing to the great difficulty of hearing Mr. O'Connell in the moro distant parts of the house. The confusion continued until Mr O'Connell, advancing townrds the centre ?f the hottso, mounted on a table, and thus continued his i 'dress] ? I was endcir. oring t? vindicate the judgment y ou had formed. My task, 1 may say, was that of vindicating you to yourselves, of endeavoring to prove that you are perfectly justified in the ardor of your enthusiasm in tup porting my cause and that of the Irish people.?(Cheers ) The accusation that has been made against inu, and on which I have been convicted, is of that enormous nature, thut it is interesting to every human being, whether he tie himself liable to a similar machination or not, te miderstaud distinctly its hearing, its form, and its pressure. It is not a crime defined by the law, or definite. It is not a crime respecting the evidenco for which there is any possible resort to law bonks, or to the conjurations ot men of my trade. It is called, to he sine, a conspiracy ; hut there is nothing ot private agreement there is no thing of arrangement tli oe is nothing ot plot or plan In it. It is something that the judges imagine when they lrcatn, and make the public suffer when they are awake ?

But there is one man oi ol whom men of all classes are ashamed, a person no one In praised, and that man is Chief-Justice Pern-lather. Nobody le has attempted to defend him?nobody hns attempted to eu- pi logise him. It is admitted that since the hideous days of st Seroggs and Jelferys so one-sided a charge was never pro- vi nounceil by judicial lips.

(Cheers) Pardon mo lor this lo tUflMilB) hut it is important that we. should understand u\ each other well. The people ol Ireland have wailed for rn llieir own freedom of conscience; they were in power w three times since the Heformation, and they never perse- til cuted a single Protestant.

I am here talking to the wi coMimon sense of Knglishmeii?to their sense of honesty, ih and to that noble adherence to fdir play, which aliove nil en things else is the highest and most dignified trait in the ac Lngtish character. It is a common saying ull on r the lie world, when two men are found lighting, people who ah come iiji are sure to take part with one or the other ; but th in i'.iiglmid it is proverbial that no two people fight that su those who romo up don't see fair play. I am telling you tri those things, and appealing to your lair play. There is ea no one word in r.nv other language that can express such |hi ach under, and it deserves to have a word coined for *ii it'elf. The Iruuil is unrontroverteil till the present mo w! meat; the only answer we git, as 1 told von, was, "you cr don't know who committed the fraud, and therefore there be is no remedy." Suppose a m;\n is robbed mid does not .IP know tlie name ol the thief, if he went heloie Sir Petei so Laurie, or any other of your white witches, nod said " 1 'h caught this man escaping from my premises with my va goods," everybody would laugh at Sir I'eter more than | they do if he were to say, " I cannot listen to y our com- ill plaint; you don't know the man's name." (A laugh) Ai And yet on that most ridiculous assertion we were told he that the Iruuil must go unpunished, und we must be pun hi istieil for mentioning the Irnnd (cheers, and nies ol en "shame.") There remains one more impeachment, and wi hat is my impeachment of the jury ihat was sworn. In an iioint of law Protestant anil Catholic h ire equal tight to ,1n neon that jury (cheers.)

My opinion may be insigmli nt; biltthe Catholic prelates ot Ireland have within tinit six weeks proclaimed that they would never lake one i igle tarthing ot ptltilir mom j , or any state eiulowinent hat soever, (flu era.)

An increase In the popula n is a f.ivoraiilc sign, hilt the retrogression of a pojn.- A ion ol 7u DtiO n year Is a most convincing proof of s scry, distress and wretchedness. Now, just to show d ii that what I am stating is correct, I will read yon the icription of Mr Kohl, a tleiman, who has been travel- n g all over Kurope, who has visited Ireland, and lately v Wished a tiook, in which is the following statement: g remember, when I saw the poor l.ettes in I.lvonia, I h d to pity tliem for having to live in huts built of the tl tiewn logs oftrees, the crevices being stoj ped up with e its I pitied them on account of their low doors and di- d nntivc windows,nnd gladly would I have arranged th< ir i nner lor them in a more suitable mnnncr.
