The government securities, m the teeth of thia abundance do not improve. By the monthly official returns, just published we perceive that the Bank of England has com menced diminishing its issues as nearly as possible to the amount of drain upon its gold bullion, and what is still more worthy of attention, its deposits are increasing, while its paper currency is also de creasing.

The Jfsuits.?A letter from Geneva says:? "Daring the last month, a French gentleman, At. Claude (rdillaid, having abjured the Catholic faith in thii city, ana embraced the reformed religion, Hie tact was announced in our journals. lie im mediately received an invitation from a person styling hinuself a member of the Order of Chrw 11411 Doctrine at Geneva, couched in extremely polite but .very pressing 'terms, to pass the next morning with his intended host at the parlor of the fraternity, there to talk over the particulars of his convention. Treating the overture as au imperti nence, M.Gnillard only mentioned it to his friend?, and declined going. Within two days, he havir g left his house on busii.ess, and not returning, his friends became alarmed, and sought lor him every where, but without success. Information has been obtained that he 1ms been kidnapped at Geneva, and transported by the road of Trungy to Chambe ry, where the JesnitB of that place detain him in close concealment. If this be true, as there iB lit tle rensou to doubt the quarter from whence the information has beea received, the reclamation of a French subject by the French government will iollow ot course, and the whole iniquitous mystery be uuiaveled. Tub. Anti-Corn Law Lf^our.?The winter campaign commenced at Manchester on Thursday week. The place of meeting was the Free Trade Hall. The chairman was Mr George Wilson,who read some elaborate statistical tables of ibe parlia mentary regis'ration in Lancashire and its bo roughs. The League instituted a searching inves tigation rnto the registrations of one hundred and forty boroughs ; but his report chiefly related to the county named. There are the most striking results. In Liverpool the League have gained 452 voter; and such another .advance would change the representation of the borough. In South Lan cashira they have secured a working majority of 1,153 votes; in North Lancashire they have gained 638 on the register, but not a majority The county and its boroughs ut present return 14 Monopolists, and 112 Free Traders; at the next election llie League exp? ctthat there will lie returned 21 Free Traders and 5 Monopolists. He had reports ol seventy but of the hundred and for y boroughs ; and in sixty-eight the Leaguo hud a cleargain upon the registrations Sutli is th? statement of the League. Mr. Cobden made a telling speech; with some palpable hits at agricultural meetings, at Lord Stanley's boast of the number of tiles mat he and his father have laid down?Jchn Bright mighi ut well boast of the millions ol bricks he, had just.laid in building a factory?and at the premiums given to laborers. Some interest had been excited in England at tlu. opposition oa this side ot the Atlantic to the League's distribution of its pamphlets during our contest for the Presidency. It was questioned whether Ihe tree trade philanthropists were justified in busying themselves with the domestic concerns of another country, notwithstanding their belief that the protective policy is a moat delusive one for America. They state that about the mere party distinctions ot the candidates they are nothing, tree trade with all the countries of the world being their only impelling motive. Piracy and Murdrr.?The Pomona, of Glas Sow, a fine merchant brig of "20 tons burthen, un er the command of Capt. MnnrO, was unfortu nate enough, on the 25hh of July last, whtlst on her passage Jroin Jamaica to Europe, to be over taken by a pirate schooner, earning Spanish co lors, with a crew of apparently about 150 men, most of whom were negroes and mulatoes. She was a beantilul craft, with a large gun on a pivot between the main nnd foremasts; painted yellow on the starboard side, and black on the larboard. Captain M. deeming resistance vain, surrendered and the result was the immediate slaughter ot him self, his chief mate .Mr. Goygh, followed by the murder of mrtfet of the rest of crew, excepting sume who threw themselves overboard, to avoid the savage cruelty of the pirates. The remaining few, after the most cruel treatment, were bound id cords, and left ip the tore-hatchway by the piraUs, who, having plundered the vessel of all they wish ed, cut away the" topmasts, destroyed the rigeing and sails, and scuttled her in several places^.The unfortunate vessel was fallen in with a few days after the massacre, when she was water-logged, and nearly in a sinking state. The second mate and three seamen, after the pirates lett the vessel, contrived to extricate themselves, and were iouud by the brigaoline in a deplorable state. uxtensive forgeries of JS100 notes of the Bank of En?lund ha t been discovered. The paper upon which they were printed muu have been manufac tured tor the purpose, as uie water-mark is real, and the forgerieu umoi have been got up at great expense, and are said to be so excellent that None but experienced inspectors ot the Bunk of England could detect them They were all dated Decem ber 5,1843, with difierent number*, ai.d it is sup-1 posed that they were manufactured at Paris, as the , ISatik of England is in possession of a real note, *hieh contains the same ante and letters with the forgeries, which note came troin Paris, and is sup posed tu be the original from which the forgeries were executed. They were intended, without doubt, for the foreign markets, where the Bank of England notes are always rendily accepted. KnqIish AccottNT of the Grobkrt Business in New York..?Extracts of a- letter from a young clerk, who emigrated a short time ago, to ins late employers in this country:??? The grocery trade id among the best in this city, and wiTh a tew hundred pounds an extensive busine&i ean be done. Merchandise, from the small duty imposed on it, is uncommonly cheap. SpKar, such as the fine Jamaica you used to have, sells at 41: tea at 2j. to 8*. for young hyson; coffee from :>Jd to 7d. per lb , nnd everything else proportionality cheap A working man here lives like a gentkfpau, ai-.d every table i? loaded with all the delicacies ot the season. Fruit is a great articte of commerce for a S;rocer in New York. In the morning hegets up at ive o'clock, and seta off with his wagon to the wharf, where ull the steam, boats arrive loaded with fruit of every description. He goes through amongst the sellers, aiH mailt a his bargains; comes home with his wagon load, aud is not long in getting it all disposed of, when he sets off lor the fruit market for another load. On Satur days Mr. always goes three times. You may think this a very strange trade tor a grocer, but then it is a very lucrative one^ and the good folks here care not what they traffic in it they can make a profit by it. Sometimes we sell at three tourths profit, very often- a half, and seldom less than one-third. As regards the retailing of groce ries, the customers purchase quite differently from thope in Scotland. They buy ten in no less quan tities than a quarter, half, or pound parcels. Sugar in one cwt., half ewt., stone, half stone, and quar ter stone weight. There is no trifling ol time with pennyworths of Ich. and pennyworths ol rugar, butter, coffee, Vc?London Uazcttr, Oct. 29. Iceland* Charles Gavan Duffy, editor of the Nation, and late fellow prisoner with O'Connell, has rddresecd a long letter to the leader, dep.rcauug adhesion to the federalists, on the part of the repealers as a body. Mr. D contends that federali-m is essen tially a worse thing than re(ieal. Firat,?Because it Still leaves'Er.fland the head quartern of lush politics and HtnUition ; perpetuates the Irish sub jection, and fail* to discourage absenteeism. Se condly,-- l>cabse in itself it is ot no use to Ire land. Thirdly,?Aa (demanding a re-construotion ot the institutions of the empire, it is impractica ble. The aecoud point to which Mr. Duffy con tends, is, that it is bad policy to embrace federal ism ; and lastly, that the Repeal Association hav ing been organized on re|teal principles, baa no more power to make that body federalist thnn the last Irish Parliament had t<> vote away the inde pendence of Ireland. Mr. Dutfy is, however, wil ling to have the federalists for friende, though not tor leaders. FanBRALis*?O'Connki.!,.?We eppy the follow ing letter from the Ktrry Examiner. If Mr. O' Connell has been considering Federalism, it is a Federalism of Lhg highest and most National order. A subordinate Federalism for Ireland?the Ireland for which he so long?so nobly?so geiievously?so aaoeeskfully?labored, he would reject with ineffa ble scorn. When hi* letter in reference to Feder alism appeared, we did not hesitate to say what the Federalism was to which alone onr Leader would eoiaent.

Ireland uivst have every thing she won in '82; nothing lew will satisfy the leader?nothing lees will content the people: ? O'Pfnndl'f Letter. Dkrrynanr AbbrV| Botfy Oct. 1811. Sir i?I have read your article in yesterday's Examiner, headed "Federalist," and I feel vrrv very much obliged to you for the civil and kind things which you have said to me in that article. To be aure, I have been working for upwards of fotty yeans in the popular cause ; and .though 1 have often opposed the popular sentiment for a time, one way or other the people have ultimtttl? comd round to my opinion, and such temporary disagree ment has only tended to augment the public con fidence. If there be any difference of opinion between me and the people at lame on the present occasion, which I am not disposed to believe, yet the time is not come when any explanation can be given or received, for this simple ieHScn, that up to t?ePre" sent moment there is no plan ot Federalism petore the public. The Federalists have beenjuvited to declare themselves in precise and specific terms they have not as yet done so. _ When they shall have d< olared thi-naseUres, it will b?* the duty ot every public man, whether at the press or as con nected with the Association, to declare luily and freely his sentiments upon that plan. At present those who assail Federalism, moan the creature of their own imagination; without, however* in general going so far as you facetiously have done by converting a Federal Lord Lieuten ant or Speaker into an. auction bell-mau ; a trans formation that may easily account for your hos

tility to Federalism in the abstracV My object at present is to set you right as to some matters of pre-existing fact; in order that you may understand me, I subjoin the following imsoag" Irom your article?I talie up the paragraph with the following wordfi?'" We have been rob bed of our nationality, and we, Repealers, demand its restoration in all vts pre-existing amplitude. Then to show your notion of the " pre-exist iug amplitude" of our loriner parliament, you add these words? - ? . > 3 "A parliament sitting in Iioland, to govern only the affair* of Ireland, and not daring to think on muiterj ot iinp'-nal potior, would bo converting Ireland into one great borough, and continuing our ruiinmont a munici pal corporation on a large ?cale?that ii not.tho sort of parli*m?nt secured to us in 17SJ." Now see how you mistake, how totally you mis take the fact?that was precisely the parliament se cured to us in 1782. It was in your words, "a parliament sitting in Ireland to govern only the aflairB of Ireland' ?aB to its not daring to think on matters of imperial policy, thought is free?but it certainly could not, and therefore did not dare to act on matters ot imperial policy. It had no kind of power, or control over, or interference with the colonies, or with ihc treaties between Great Britain and foreign powers; or with the appointment of the British ministry, that is in point of fact, with the nomination of the executive power in the country.t , D<> not imagine that in describing the powers ot the Irith parliament as they really were (una as you say they wet? not.) that I deny its efficiency, or its ability to protect the interests and the prosperity of Ireland. I say directly the re verse. From the momentat which it Bhook off the trammels of the liritiah Legislature, it showed ub efficacy, and demonstrated its utility in the protec tion of all Irish interests?ol lush agriculture, commerce, and manufactures. Having thus set you right upon an important fact, you will, I am sure, not think I do so in any spirit of hostility?my sentiments towards you are quite different. I know that you have toiled for, and suffered?severely suffered?in the public cause ; and I do not hesitate to Bay, that the popu lar party in Kerry have not treated you with suffi cient gratitude. .. 1 however think it would be well if you n well as others postponed the discussion of Federalism until it had assumed " form, shape, and pressure ?it might then be attacked or defended for what it really is?at present every anti-Federalist makes his own giant before he kills him. , n 1 Federalism may be much worse than simple Re peal; that is, than the restoration of the parliament of 1782 in a reformed *tate?arid if it be, if it shall affect to take away any ef the powers which the Irish parliament formerly had, it is uot in that cake at all likely to make way among the Irish people. But Federalism may aU>o be much better than the mere rettoration of the Irish parliament?it may restore the IriBh parliament with all its former powers, and it may nuperinduce a right to Ireland, and a mode'Of a-bertitVg that right, to interfere di rectly in imperial' concerns?in foreign tr< uties? and in Colonial affairs. The modes ol that inter ivrence would require much conoideration, but it would have the advantage ot tn#king the connec tion with the British crown more strict, permanent, and inviolable. ,j. . ? , .... The Federal plan Will, in all probability, appear very shortly before the public Whatever it shall prove to be, there is one thing certain, that its sup porters ahouid be treated with the utmost courtesy and deference ; that their plans should be can vassed lu a manner the most reepecilul, argumen tative, and conciliatory ; and that every mode of inducing rational and patriotic men to join the p e sent Association should be resorted to There is nothing derogatory in the most strenuouu and al most supplicatory afiorts to combine the Irish gen try of every persuasicn with the Irish people in the cause of their ooiimion couutry. Whatever shall be the result, you may easily venture to believe that I, lor one, will never con sent to receive less for Ireland than she had before. I am ready to accept as much more for her as 1 can potoibVy^t |j0n0r t0 Your obedient servant, Dahikl O'Connilu France.

English Aggressions in Africa.?TheNation al tie I'Duett has the following article:? We have this moment become informed of a new usurpation by our welt beloved ahy. The Englibh have taken possession of the north point of Prince Island, on the western coast of Africa, belonging to the Por tuguese, under pretence of establishing there a de pot of coal for their transatlantic steam packets. ?

Hanover. _ At Clausthal, a mining town in the ilartz Forest, in llanover. a dreadful conHagrution broke out on the 16;h ol last month, and in the short space of a t>w hours destroyed a church and several public offices, swept away 218 dwelling houses and a great number cf stubles and barns, and left 8000 oi the inhabitsli's without a roof to shelter them from thv rigor ol a northern winter, to whi'-h the town ot Cfousthal, owing to its situation on the top of a mountain, ia particularly exposed. AlgleNi The outbreak of th- Kabyles, near Delly's, ap pears to have been a much more at rious nflair than was at first supposed. The engagement to Which that movement gave rise reunited in a iofla to the French of thirty killed and one hundred and thirty wounded, among whom were not fewer than fifteen officers. The insurrection was whol ly unexpected, for General Comiiiau had only a short time before, sent troops throughout all the districts in that neighborhood, without meeting with any opi>ositiou. Having occasion to visit one ot the tribes, however? he lound that formidable redoubts had been constructed, and every appear ance of an organised resistance established. He attacked these defences, but was ultimately obliged to retreat with the loea above mentioned. On the receipt oi the news, Marshal Bugeaud left Algiers with four regiments, only recently arrived from Morocco, lor Uellys, constituting a force ot upwards of 2.0(H) men. The position ol Abd-el Kaiier is described as being far less desperate than had been supposed. Morocco. The " Moniteur P..risien" announces, that the Emperor of Morocco had ordered the treaty made with France to be proclaimed, by beat of drum, through nil the cities of the empire. According to this journal, Abdel Kader had retreated to the mountains which are the farthest removed from the French positions and the strong places ol Mo rocco, with only a few hundred followers.

The killed and wounded ot the Portuguese having been about eighty, and the loss ot muskets bv Portuguese admission, near two hundred, at least one hundred and twenty oi their soldiers must have thrown down their arms to ta cilitate their desperate ardor in running away irom the blacks. _ Brazil. The new crusade made by the Brazilian govern ment against the admis:>iou ot British produce, is another blow and great discouragement against the commerce of this country. It is just such u species of retaliation bb might have been expected. An ait valorem duty of thirty per cent, is imposed jn British goods. Th?j Brazilian representative has proceeded to Germany, the country ol exclusive latills, and lie is armed, in all probability, with powers to direct his tactics according to circum stances. China. Advices from Canton notice the gradual increase of the import trade urising Irom the jieaee.

The hug lish last year repaired the walls of the company s I garden, which had been broken down at the lire in 1S42. They put on a gate, and were in the habi; of walking, playiug at quoits, nnd otherwise amusing themselves. On the loth of J-uly, the Chi nese endeavored to force themselves into the gar i den, but were opposed. Upon this they threw brickbats, and broke down the gate, compelling the Englishmen to take refuge in a boat, in which they made their escape to the Consulate. I On the tallowing evening a party of Chinese went arnied with brickbats, and attempted to take pos ses-ion of the other garden. Resistance being o - I fered, they commenced an indiscriminate attack upon all the foreigners who caine within their reach. Several American gentlemen immediately armed themselves and drove them Irom the Iront of the factories. Htill continuing to throw brick bats, they were fired upon, undone man killed, nnd I another wounded in the arm, whichended the aflair ^Vlext nm'rrung a meeting of the mob leaders of Canton was held, ami a placard was stuck about i tin streets, informing the foreigners that unless 2000 dollars were, paid on account ol the man who ?as shot, the factories should be burnt down. Treasure, books, papers ol value, <Sec. have conse quently been sent away, and measures adopted for , defence. The Euglish and American consuls have applied to the Chinese authorities tor a sullicient force to protect the factories, and a message has also been sent to the American man-ol-war at the Bo'iue, to request assistance. That day, however, passed oil quietly, partl7, it is believed, in conse quence of u considerable number of sailors arriving Irom Whampoa, and partly from the efl^cts ol a very high tide, which flooded the iront of the lac tones. On the 17th, a large number ot sailors and marines irom the United States nblp St. Lou.s ar rived, and the sailors belonging to the merchant vessels were withdrawn. A good deal ol petty mischief had been done, but nothing requiring the interference of the marines, Every one there, however, is in expectation of an attack, when they must either maintain themselves by force, or be again burnt out; they are lortunately said to be well prepared lor defence, and the resectable part of the Chinese community seem to have no sym pathy with the mob. It is pretty evident, however, that the authorities at Canton are either unable or unwilling to adopt measures sufficiently vigorous to check the riotous disposition of ihe commonalty. We Hated recent ly our conviction that it would be found necessarv to strengthen the small guard posted at the conml s residence, and that a vessel ut Whampoa was too far off to give protection and security against an unexpected attack. So far from this being done, however, the Wolverine has been withdrawn, and no otheT sent in her place, and in consequence, 'he Britith residents and British consul have been obliged to apply to a foreign power lor protection j and while a number of our vessels are crowded in the roads here, they owe their ?alety to the pre sence of an American guard. Letters of the IRth, subsequently received, speak with apprehension of the 20th, whiiMit being the "Dragon** Festival," was considered a time likely [ to be taken advantage of by the rabble to create a riot We are happy to state fnrther intelligence to the2lst, informs us ol continued quiet and return ing confidence, several of the houses bringing back their books and valuables. Up to the 28th, no lurther disturbance had taken place, though confidence is by no means restored, and business continues to be interrupted. The Chinese guards at the factories have been eon siderablf increased, but their cowardice ia too Will known to allow them to be trusted to, as they would either desert their posts, or mingle with the crowd, in case ol an attack. ThetChinese Autho rities have paid 5o0 taeles to the widow nnd family of the person who was shot. Mr. Forbes, the American Consul* has been applied to deliver up the person who shot him, aad to order the the St. Louis to leave Whampoa. neither of which ia he likely to comply with. This applicstion is report ed by some to have been mad? by Keying, but ?s he would more naturally atldrefs Mr. Gushing, It probably proceeded from the local magistrates. H. M. ship Wolverine has returned to VThampoa, with duecuona, it is said, to proceed to Canton and I lie < IT the factories, should that be considered ne cessary. This is an it should be; and though such it measure would probably be remonstrated against by the Chinese, it is proper they should he made I to understood that England will not allow heroeli to be obstructed by tke bare letter of the trestv from defending the lives and property of her lub jects when the* are endangeredTn the tffiuSw tot! thim I J XOA W Ut tP? fai,hl?" to pro tect them. Indeed, we consider our government ought to assume higher g?tmd, and plainly inti mate to the Imperial Commissioner, that a riot eo curring by which any of our countrymen ahall jnifUrm person or property, and which they, the hinese, well knowing it wu threatened for wfeks, yet took no adequate measures to prevent, will be considered a breach of the peace existing between the two naiione, and lead inevitably to a renewal of hostilities.
