CO ok mic be FOREIGN NEWS st III BY T1IB ]>, BRITANNIA, A rej From the Banker's Circular. ,j.j We insert front ths Timtt the following short Tl conversation which took place in the House ol f,n Commons on Tuesday evening, for the purpose of be making upon it some brief observations. It appears on to us pregnant with instruction tor all whose minds nn have not been sealed up by bigotry, concerning the so course ot policy on commercial legislation which sii England has lately pursued:? be CoMMCRCIAL Tiutiu. Co "Da Bowaixo begged now to put to the llight lion pe Baronet at the head ot her Majesty's Government the th piesiiou ot Which he had given notice, whether they had tj( my official knowledge ot a treaty between the I nited Stales oi America and the German Zollverein, lor the u mutual admission of articles at lower rates than if import- . ad Irom Great Iliitain or other countries ife had been 111 informed that a treaty had been signed between the re up presentatives ot thn German Commercial Union and the IK Minister of the United States, which was ioundod upon Si he principle of preferential duties between those two fm countries. Ho un ierstood that in consequence of this en- j,n {agement the German Status would permit the impoita gj( ion of cotton wool, and other articles, Irom the United . States, fruit of duty, und reciprocal advantages would be jranted by the United States to imports from the States ol he German Commercial Union. A great advantage kvould, therefore, he given to German over British manufactures; and he begged to Inquire whether the Might rn lion. Baronet was rognirant of tne tact he had mentioned _-\j ivlUoh would exercise a most prejudicial effect ?|>en the ntmests ot British industry I ' " Sir It. I'i'.li. said the statoment of the honorable mem- r.1 ler was substantially correct. A treaty had been signed " let ween Prussia, acting on tlie part of the Zollverein, Ml ind the representative ol the United States, stipulating 1 hat certain duties should be reduced. He would not fof- Mi ow the example of the honorable member, and say that ho i system of preferential' duties had been established?for pri je did not wish to sanction a new word (a laugh) indeed, p? ie would take the opportunity of ontering a protest thi igainst its adoption, lie believed the substance of the lei reaty had been fairly represented by the honorable gen thi Ionian; but he (Sir H. Peel) begged to say that that treaty a 1 lad not yet been ratified, lie believen mat, in order to de five It etfect, it iiad yut to receive the aanctiun oi tne tx- ?? cutivn Government of the United State*, and of two- tin hird* of the Senatu. 'In Mr Lasovchckx mid, he believed that, in pursuance of <o he term* of the treatie* between the United State* an(l ne his country, the United State* could not admit the pro- lot luctions oi tlie Germanic League, or indeed of any couip bei ry, into their dominion* on more advantageous terms than '"< hose on which the production* or manufacture* of the, -n :ountry were admitted. If he were correct in this opinion, ca' iny reduction of duties mado by the United States iu lavor tin it Prussian or German manufactures must be equally ad thi untageou* to the manufactures of this country. wl Sir It. I'm. said, the Government had already taken this wc |uc*tion into their consideration ; but as the treaty to r-o vhicli the hon. member for Bolton (Or. Bowring,) had ad- ibf rerted was not yet ratified, perhaps it would he better for ret lim not to enter into detail*, but to content himself with 'h< itating, that the matter had not escaped attention. There 111 van a treaty in existence between tins country and the ed Jnited States, by which it wa* stipulated that England co iliould, in matters of trade, be put upon the same looting ho is the most favored nation. As honorable gentlemen weie be irohably aware, there were two kind* of commercial trea- *t* ies. Under one clais of treaties it was agreed by one ua- P'1 ion that another should be put on the looting oi the most wc 'avored nations, without any equivalent being given ; and la' >y another description oi treaties it was provided, that a co :ountrv should he placed on the footing of the most no avored nations, provided ;*ho made certain concession*, of t was a treaty of the former kind which existed between ex hi* country and the United State*. 'hi We take this opportunity to repeat what we said be n the moat emphatic terms we could command, jf11 when the new Tariff was under consideration, in he year 1842, viz. That it was sanguine fully, and Ql( tothing belter, whiclt induced persons to expect ha hat anv relaxation of commercial restriction* by Ve tnglaud would seduce foreign countries into cor- pel esponding concessions. Tne truth of thia opinion thi S'peedtly illustrated by the six unfriendly and relistive tariffs of other rftates, which were promul- 1,11 ;ated in the course of that year. We believe the animating principle which lias au >een at work fo suggest and form the compact be- |l0 ween Prussia and the Uuited States, to which the <jj oregotng conversation relates, to be a desire to do tin ufncihitftf wfii'ft 0/iuCt i/ytiutt iv iftc txtiU6lOfl (Jf Knglaiid ; and that this was the strongest motive, a" text to that of promoting the individual interest ul 8" ach of thoee respective states. It is not a little J.jc lurious to observe tnat Dr. llowring, who was paid wt or collecting materials for those. delightful day- ter (teams of reciprocal intercourse between England i,v ifwi iTcrnutfii; vvitli wlurh h#? hffflllled thfi DllhllC. h? .hould be the person who elicits the information ch vhich stamps the value of such illusions. With Prussia we believe there is no such treaty as would ;ompel her to admit English goods on tne looting if the most favored nations ; but with the United t0 States there is; and therefore we imagine the treaty th, ust concluded between these two states may never [lB re ratified by the legislature of the latter. Sir R. ty Peel, it will be observed, cautiously avoided to Br ;ome in to the flattering speculation of Mr. Lnbou- hil . here, which was, that the United States having greed to admit the manufactures ol Germany at a {"' ower scale of duties, would, by virtue of the treaty iiie has subsis ing with England, be compelled to at ulmit British goods on the same terms us German m, {onds. The United States will do no such thing, an irdess she be induced to do so at a cost or sacrifice of which England is not likely to make. But this na lew treaty between our most formidable competi- ^ ors in manufactures may, notwithstanding, lead to ^ -nibarrassing negotiations between England and jn| he United States. yo Suppose the new Prussian treaty to he ratified ful ly the Congress of the United States, England, in <?" hat case, would forthwith demand of her to admit British good* on the same terms as German goods ?" To this the Republican Statesman would demur, mi ind would probably plead the Ashburton treaty as t0' i precedent which would exonerate them for re- p*i using compliance. By the third clause of that <) reaty England stipulates "that all the produce of wi he forest in logs, lumber, timber, boards, staves, >r shingles, or ot agriculture, not being inanufac- ut ured, giown on any of those pans ol the State of Vfaine watered by the River St. John or by its tri- '^r mturies, of which fact reasonable evidence shall, f rejpiired, he produced, shall have free access into ini through the said river and it? sairl tributaries, ct Having their source within the State of Maine, to hi and from the sea-port at the mouth of the said p' River St. John's, and to and round the falls of the mid river, either by boats, rafts, or other convey- "1 nice; that when wnhin the Province of New Bruitswick, the said produce shall be deult with as if it were the produce of the said Province." By this B clause it will be suid T.ord Ashburton has conceded ft to the United States the right to call upon Knglund ?t to receive, by virtue of the previously subsisting te 'reaty of commerce, the agricultural produce of ft every section of the United States into the province " if New Brunswick; ami "that when within the ' province of New Brunswick the said produce shall be dealt with as if it were the produce of the said Cf province." That is, according to the plain import a' if the word*, it may be sent to England, and there fh I'lnim to be entered tor consumption as the produce in of New Brunswick at the colonial rate of duties, to There seems no meaning in the provision to l ive the produce of any country udmitteU on w ill- footing of tfie tnost favored nation, if, th after having stipulated to receive the produce 01 1* niie section of a country, the whole of that country cannot demand the same privilege. It tins case of l>a admission to the produce of the State of Maine ^ were given tor special purposes, and were intended h| to lie an exception to the rule which governs the < , operation ol such a treaty as we have with the Uni- hi led States, the exception should have been ex- In1 ire?s|y stated as such in the Anhhurton Treaty,that "< 10 doubt might thereafter arise, surl no disputation '* >e provoked on the ground ot that treaty. Seeing !' what dexterous liiinda the Republican Statesmen jJJ, ire at raising long diplomatic disputes on omissions rn >r misinterpretation of words, it will he our good |10 fortune if Kngland he not drawn into embarrassing 7.l< legociations on this point; and we can imagine nothing more likely to produce them than such a cl< reaty hs bus been concluded between Prussia and ?? lite United States. There can lie no doubt, from the guarded mnnner with which Sir It. Peel treated Mr. Labou- ot eliere'a suggestion,that the British < lovernnient per- u, ceives and gravely appreciates these prospectively th embarrassing circumstances. And the sooner our tn Statesmen adopt the disagreeable conclusion, that hs foreign countries desirous of fostering their maimlacturing interests, will allow no opportunity to es- n" (M|>e of forming compacts winch will operate to "J? the exclusion of Knaland, the better will they lie ' prepared to ileal witli questions affecting the interests of their own country. IVehuvt before said that th rary and jealousy of England it a growing feeling, yt ioh o h has acquired almost the impulsive force, of pas- pr ton, among the people of Frame, the I'nited Stales, of md the Otrmantr league; and, however sagacious m may he the statesmen who rule their destinies, they S,'| Nitnot safely go counter to the national will. This so untoward and perplexing feature of the en-e seems 7fl lo us to have been wholly disregarded by Mr. I Ins- er ki.-on, Sir It. Peel, Lord Ripon, and Mr. Cilnd- al cone, or they never would have delivered sanguine W YO EW YORK.

Whoever knows the as of the Premier's mind and has reflected on the iurse of his policy, will think it much more likely at his views should take this direction than the posite, notwithstanding the threatening inlimam conveyed in Lord Aberdeen's instruction, tubing would give more satisfaction to our manuclurers or conduce more to the permanent popurity of Ministers among merchants, thun a remis)ti of the duty on the raw material of our staple ides.

Mr Otia appears to consider it singular that the limi ting was deferred by the challenged party for eight days alter the messnge pnssi rl The challenge wag handed to me on Monday, the 8lh April; on Tuesday mornii.g, Mr. lhitler and myself lelt Philadelphia, and reached Washington at 11 o'clock oil Wednesday. The intervening four days were not more thun guflicicnt to allow my friend to mnke the requsite arrangement of hie affair* before engaging in a serious contest, and to enable me to obtain the attendance cf a surgeon, as well uato procure the services of another ftiend, as had been agreed upon, as witness id the duel 1 certainly wns not aware that any great haste was cither expected or r? mured on my part, as the other party had exhibited no extruoidmaiy impatience in demanding satisfaction, but bad pennitted u whole month to pass, alter rece*virm the alleged injury, before* even sending the challenge. Mr. Otis considers the opportunity ollered tor prejiiiration and practice, (luring the short period after our arrival in Washington which intervened before the duel, as likely to have given Mr. Hurler grentlv the advantage; but while he reproaches us with au advantage in tlie delay of lour days, lie totally forgets the tour weeks of preparation which Mr Sciiott indulged himself in before sending the hostile message ; anil Mr. Otis expresses great surprise at my proposition toplace the parties back to back, which would require them to wheel and fire; he pronounces it " .1 very uncommon mode of warfare and to strengthen his impression, lie cites the opinion of four unnamed gentlemen, which, lie is satisfied, would lie regarded as decisive in any court of honor. With all due deference to sm it high uuthority, 1 think differently ; mid my ow n conviction on thesnhject was confirmed by ihe replies of all the friends of whom i made ib>* inquiry ; ami 1 submit the question without hesitation, to the decision of that portion of the community, which professes to have any acquaintance with the etiquette and cua'oms winch regulate duels,whether upon the pleas of it* being uuiuiia! lor the second of the challenged party to requrc tli<* combatants I 0.... tl.n ..I ll... would be considered justifiable in withdrawing luin I'roni the contest. Mr. Otis further observes tliRt his objections i n this point were more strenuous "because i f on unfortunate physical disability in his principal." Now let it be remembered that on the Saturduy evening when the terms of meeting were submitted to him he exhibited surprise, and us I think dissatisfaction, with die first article ; but nothing was then said of any physical disability on Mr. Silmtt's part. 1 attributed his reluctance to accede to it, to a feeling of disappointment on finding that the parties would he required to light in u manner a litilo varied from that in which his friend had probably become a proficient by the previous month's practice. On Sunday, about twelve o'clock, a doctor's note, relating "to the anterior and central portion of the sole of the right foot." was laid before me ; this, I must confess, did not produce the anticiputed eflict in inducing me to consent to the nioposrd chugs in Um position oi the parties. To wheal endflf* is so simple and easy a movement, that uny one who can stand up may perlonn it without the least ditliculty ; it requires only that thu right loot should be moved lightly behind the left, being in fact nothing more than a half wheel, and perfotmed by anyone, with the greatest lacility. in less than five minutes practice ; those w ho doubt have but to make the experiment, and they will scon be convinced that 1 am tight. I must also observe that, alter his at rival on the ground, Mr. Hchott coutiuuid lo stand fur some minutes, and, us I thought, w ithout any apparent inconvenience to himself, although one ol our catrtHge cushion* was twice offered to him us a seat, hut declined Sir. Otis proceeds to compl dn of a want of "chivalry and generosity ' in my not consenting to place Mr. Butler in such a manner as, in his opinion, Mr. Hchott'a convenience requited. Now according to my ideas on the subject, enough of chivalry and genrrovity had been exhibited by my friend w hen he insisted on my accepting, in his i? ItaJf, challenge hum a man whom he hail never in any w?? wiuuged er insulted. A? the challenged party, he had certoin rights sanctioned by custom, ol which I was determined he should not he deprived ; and as his second, 1 had assumed duties Irorn the failhlul pvrfoiniance of which I was resolved nothing should make me swerve. It teems also a matter ol astonislinu nt tu Mi. Otis, that I would not refer article the decision of umpires , mow I do really think it would have been extreme folly and weakness on my part to have consented to sutmit ua a question to lie dcci-led Ity othcia, that which I n guided as a right already settled in my favor. He next adverts to what he now calls a proposition of Mr. Hchott. to place the parties lace to face ut the distance of from one to six paces. When this was first suggested I took no notice of it, as 1 did not thiDk it requ red n reply , upon its being again mentioned, I remarked to him that his objections to rnv trims mast be first sdroitted before I should hold mysell at liberty to think of any change, and it would then he my right lo make new propositions. again, he animadverts, with w hat object I cannot per reive, on what he considers an unusual delay on the ground. My reply la, that from the moment ol our arrival there, we tmth were actively engaged in making the icessury preparations, namely, in selecting two iqual mid stiliable positions tor the parlies, in measuring the distance, loading the pistols rrading the article* of rumbal, uid explaining to the principals the mode in which the word would ho given. Alter the first fire. I commenced reloading, as soon as Mr Otis apprised me that his Irlend wished to go on. Mr Otis next remarks that Mr. Hchott lost his second fire by his utter disability to wbvel , this may he his opinion ; It is certainlv not mine If his pia ol went off' before he intended it should, it was his own fault. "Mr Hchott then received," as Sir Otis informs us, "with full front presented the fire of his advttsary of course hemust have wheeled before Mr. Butler fited, to have done so.
