Mr. O'Conuell announced that the liberal candidate for Tipperary would be Albert Fitzgerald, of Muck ridre House. The "Liberator" then delivered him self ot a regular repeal speech, denouncing "as cendancy"?demanding that the press, education, religion, Ireland should be emancipated?referring to the lHjuries inflicted by the Union?declaring that he would not attend his parliamentary dutieB during the ensuing sessiou; and, in conclusion,mo ving that a committee be appointed to consider what course the repeal members ought to pursue in that respect.

The rent for the week was stated to he ?257 Dr M'Hale has just addressed a long and ex ceedingly violent letter to Sir Robert Peel,denoun cing the Bequests Act, and charging the govern ment with covering, under the pretext of concilia tion to Ireland, a desire to destroy the liberties of ttte Romish Church there. At the Repeal Association, on the 20th ultimo, O'Connell handed in, amidst loud cheers, ?2, the renewed subscription of Dr. M'Nally, Roman Ca tholic B'shop ot Clogher, accompanied by a letter, "in which the Bishop said, in allusion to the cano nical epistle, that though lie could not approve of a clergyman "entangling himself with seeular busi ness" nnd political schemes, he thought it quite consistent with ins duties as a bishop, considering the peculiar circumstances of the country and the wretched condition of the people, to seek for the enactment of good laws, aim the repeal or amend ment of had ones.?O'Conuell said, that the re script from Rome had been obtained under the most suspicious circumstances?that it was intend ed to keep up aud promote the spirit of benevo lence and charity, and that il had nothing to do with the laity or with repeal. The Pope had no control over their temporary aflairs. He was ready to brlieve that no concordat was thought of, but he was certain that something more injurious was meditated. He recommended that Lord Ffrench and his son John O'Connell should be seut as a de legation to Rome, tor the purpose of laying a state ment ot their case before his Holiness, and to im plore of him not to thwart them in their peaceful exertions (in common with their Protestant fellow countrymen) to obtaia a restoration of their do Rustic legislature. The University of Dublin have conferred on Mr. Emerson Tennent, M. P., the degree of Doctor of Laws. At Limerick, on Sunday night, a party were as sembled at a "wake" in Change lane, one of the poorest localities in the city, ana the room in which the body was laid out was densely crowded. The floor suddenly gave way, and all within were pre cipitated to the room beneath, which also fell, car rying all to the next, and that again, being the third, to the ground. By this melancholy accident eleven persons were killed, and from fifteen to twenty grievously maimed?some with legs and arms broken, skulls iractured, and one man had his back broken. The Irish papers continue weekly to furnish a melancholy list ot agrarian outrages. In the last Nenagh Guardian three attempted murders are re Wied, the circumstances attending which are of htmos' horrible and revolting character, and a fourth is noticed as having occurred in that neigh borhood, by the Dublin Evening Packet The latest murder of which we have an account from Ireland is that of Captain McLeod, R. M , who being on temporary duty at Ballinamore, county Leitrim, was dining at Gnrradise, near Ballinamore, the residence of Mr. Percy. He left about one o'clock, on an outside car, and, coming out of the gate, was fired at, and shot dead on the spot. He was called in Tipperary "the poor man's magistrate." The military force now in Ireland consists of seven regiments of cavalry, seventeen regiments of infantry, seventeen depots, two troops Royal Horse Artillery, one company Royal Murine Artillery, three companies Royal Marines?torming an effec tive strength of twenty-two thousand rank and file of all arms. There is to be another rent-day on the 9th ot February, " for the effectuation of the O'Connell tribute in all the parishes of the kingdom, whose contributions for 1844 have not yet beeumadeup;" nnd a hope is expressed in the advertisement that all will avail themselves of the happy privilege thus conferred upon them "for liquidating the na tional debt." We understand tha' preparations are being made by the leading Catholics ot Ireland to hold an ag gregate meeting at an early period, to take into consideration the danger with which the liberty of tbeii clergy and the independence of their church are threatened by the recent legislation of the go vernment, and the attempts made hy its agents to influence and overawe the court of Rome by fabri cations, and thteats, and promises. France. The Preue does not give very flittering prospects lor the French trade in China. "The informa tion furnished by the Special Commissioners to China, as to the probability of finding markets lor our produce, is not of a nature to justify the hopes of the French merchants The monopoly of the most important articles of manufacture appears to be secured to the English and the Americans, with whom it will be difficult to contend in the supply ol white and unbleached calicoes. The exporta tion of muslins and cambrics has been tried by the English, but lias not succeeded. Our woollens might find abetter chance of suecess; but even that is not certain, because the Chinese prefer cot ton. which they wear single in summer and wad ded in winter. The Russians, moreover, have mo nopolized the, Chinese m rkets for cloth. Our printed calicoes might, perhaps, find a market il our manufacturers could reduce their price. Until the present moment, the Swiss have been in pos session of the markets for that article. In the year 184;}, the Americans exported 1,000,00(1 pieces of unbleached cotton. That amount was nearly doubled in the year 1844. In April Ia6t, the warehouses in the interior of Canton were over loaded with British and American inanuiactures We may conclude from the information received that the Government does not expect much advan tage from the expensive expedition sent to China Tnus are confirmed the doubts we expressed on the departure of M Lagrence." At a ball and Bupper recently given at the Tuile ries, seata were set apart for the eight Arab chiefs brought to Paris by Marshal Bugeaud. Struck with the gorgeous scene, the poet ?i the party said to M. Roche, "You had no need to embark so many soldiers to conquer us?it would have been suffi cient had you sent only one halt of these beauti ful ladies to subdue us " This Arab flatterer is pro bably the chief Schedely, who has addressed a poem to Louis Philippee, in which he declares that Parisian togs are owing to the beauty of the ladisst "When the. sun from the height of the heavens be holds the beauties ol Paris, he is ashamed, and co vers himself with clouds in the way of a veil. At times he shows himself, in order to admire the splendor of their figures; he steals a part of their brilliancy, and then hides himself." Loan Philippe, after the performance at tke Tu tleriss, made a present to Mr Macready of a beau tiful eastern dagger, richly mounted with jewels.? He also gave a gold bracelet to Mdile. Plessy.? With the exception of Mr. Macready and Miss Faucit, no present was made to the English compa ny. A valuable gold saufl box was, however, pre sented to Mr. Mitchell, tor the pleasure he had af forded the royal family by the representation of Hamlet. It is generally believed to he the intention of the K ing of the French to lay the first stone of the tomb of Nanoleon, about to be erected in the Madeleine Ths French Army and Navy ?It is computed that the average strength of the French army du ring the current year will be 310,000 men and 81,. 089 horses; aotwithsfanding that the war depart ment of the budget provides for the maintenance of 4,000 men more and 1,727 horsep. Of the above average fores of 340.000 men and 81,689 horses, 240,000 men and 69,520 horses will serve in France, and 60,000 men and 13,896 horses in Algeria. The budget for the current vear in this department ex ceeas the last bv 2.637,109f; and appropriates a credit of 227,147,756f. tor the home service, 74, 166,7271 tor the Algerian, rind |or contingencies 18,119 8001; total, 812,733,288?. The number of seamen to be employed in the French navy's esti mn'ed nader the present budget at 24,120, and 1,619 officers; and the service will consist of ten armed vessel more than were provided for under the budget of 1845. This department will cost the country 4,054,6141. more than it did last year, but its composition is unquestionably superior in every respect (comparatively speaking ) The whole ex pense to the revenue, including 4,740,000f. for con tingencies, amounts to 111,569,441f.

On the 19th, Count Tojal laid before the Cham ber of Deputies his anxiously-expected budget for the year beginning on the 1st of July next, and end ing on the 30th of June, 1846, from which it ap pears that a surplus of about 39 contbs is calculated upon. Italy. ? Letters from Rome state that the Pope is in a most alarming state of health, and that the cardi nals are pn the qui vive for what may happen. His holiness is upwards of seventy-nine years of age. Cape of Good Hope. We have advices from the Cape of Good Hope to the 17th of December. Since the visit of the Governor to the frontier the colonists have enjoyed more perfect security against pilfering by the ent ires than at any former period, and the tour has thus far been attended with the most beneficial re sults. The association formed for the encourage ment of the growth of cotton wool is proceeding with spirit, and they have taken measures to pro cure the best kinds of seeds from the U. States. The aggregate value ot the imports of the eastern province, for the quarter ending on the 10th Octo ber, was ?28,616, and of the exports ?80,106. The number of vessels which had arrived inwards at Port Elizabeth was 12 direct and 10 coast wise, and outward 10 direct and 9 coastwise. The value of wool exported was ?17,553, being more than one-half of the whole amount. The province is very decidedly going on in a prosperous state, with fewer marks of grumbling than usual. Theatricals, Ac, Miraculous Escape op the Thalberg Party ? We ex'ract the following account from the Liver pool Albion of the 27th" On Saturday evening the Falcon steamer sailed for Belfast, and had amongst her passengers the celebrated pianist, M. Thalberg, and the equally celebrated vocalists, Miss Birch, Miss Dolby, Mr Johu Parry, and Mr. Calkin. Miss Dolby's mother, and Mr. Calicott, the manager of this musical company, were also on board. The party had performed at two grand concerts in Liverpool, the second of which came off on Saturday morning, and were proceeding to Belfast for the purpose of performing at a concert of thePhilharmonicSociety of that town that night. About five o'clock last evening, the Athlone re I'trned to Liverpool, and immediately after M. Thalberg and his friends drove to the Adelphi Ho tel, where they described the sufferings they had undergone during the night as being of the most latnfui nature. It appears that they had succeeded n steaming, in the teeth of the gale, as far as the Isle of Man, but that they fouHd it impossible to proceed further, and for four hours the captain con sidered the safety of the vessel in imminent peril. The party seemed to have given up all hopes ot ever seeing land again, and expected every moment to to to the bottom. Mr Thalberg, with Mr. J. Cal Ain, Miss Whitnall, and Mr. J. Calicott, proceeded to Dublin on Monday evening, where four concerts were to be given during the week, but Miss Delby and her mother, with Mrs. E. Birch and Mr. John Parry, went to ShrewsDury (to await the return ol Thalberg,) where a concert is to take place. Pri vate letters from the sufferers to their friends in London describe their situation, for many hours, is most alarming, for the captain was afraid ot uriking upon some of the numerous rocks about the Isle ot Man, and the roaring of the wind and waves was truly awful. Madame Dulcken's Soirees in London have been highly successful. She is well supported by Miss Ramforih, the Misses Williams,and MissF. Flow er, accompanied by Benedict and Muhlenfeldt. The death of Miss Julia Cruise, took place at Cookstown-cottage, Ennesdery, near Dublin, on ihe 26th ult. after a long and Severe illness. Miss Cruise was an actress of great talent, and tor sev eral seasons occupied a high position in public esti mation in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Dublin. A piece was produced at the Princess's Theatre, London, 13th ult. called Monseigneur, or, Paris in 1780 It is a genuine specimen of the modern French stage; smart, lively, ingeniously construc ted, and marked with the prevailing laxity of Pa risian morals. At the Paris Italian Opera, "Lucrezia Borgia" was produced last week in a new form, and under the title of "La Rinegata." It seems that, in France, the author of a play which has been ta ken as the subject of an opera, has the power to prevent the performance oi the opera. Victor Hu go, the author of ihe tragedy of "Lucrece Borgia, nas availed himself of this power, and has obtain ed a prohibition of the performance of the Italian opera, which has been evaded by the device of I adopting a new libretto to Donizetti's music. Mr. Buckstone has again entered the field of his fanner successful labors, and has produced an ori ginal piece in three acts, entitled "The Green Bushes; or, A Hundred Years Ago," which, it is said, for depth of interest, variety of incident, and dramatic construction, may be placed beside the happiest of his previous efforts, without suffering by the comparison. It has been brought out at the Adelphi theatre, London, and has been highly suc cessful. A five act piece was brought out at the Sadler's Wells establishment, which, under the manage ment of Mrs. Warner and Mr. Phelps, has become a home and a refuge for the destitute drama. The play is from the experienced pen of T. J. Serle, ana is called "The Priest's Jaughter" The epoch chosen by the author is that stirring period in the history of France contemporary with that of William Rufus. The Malta papers state that a great sensation has been produced there by the appearance, at the Italian theatre, of Miss Emma Bingley, a young English lady, a pupil of Cunoni, who is remem bered as the most accomplished tenor-singer ot his day; and she has iatterly had the inestimable ad vantage of instruction from the unrivalled Pasta, the Siddons of the musical stage. Miss Bindley made her first appearance in the Malta theatre, on the 23d ol December, in the character ot Amina in La Sonnambula, and was highly successful. The well known actor, Mr. Charles Baker, expi red on the 21st inst., in London. Sacred Music Concerts have been given at Cros by Hall, London, under the direction ot Miss Mounsey. The principal performers were Mist Raioforth, Miss Dolby, Mr. Francis, and Mr. No vello. A solo on the organ was admirably perform ed by Miss Mounsey,who is one of the most highly cultivated and accomplished musicians. M. J allien gave three concerts a short time Bince and travelled upwards of 300 miles with all his band, within about 50 hours! Twe of the concerts were given at Manchester, and one before the Queen, at Stowe. A new five act piece was brought out at the Co vent Garden, on the 27th ult. It bore the unpre tending title of Honesty, and owes its intellectual parentage to Mr. Henry Spicer, a young gentleman who has published a play called the Lords of El lingham, and other dramatic pieces, ot which the periodical press have spoken in very eulogistic terms. Mr. and Miss Vandenhoff took the princi pal characters. It waB highly successful. M. Moscheles, the eminent pianist, has returned to England from an extensive tour in Germany, where he gave concerts at several places with great success, and when at Vienna he performed twice at court, by command of the Emperor ot Austria. Mr. Lover is giving amusing entertainments ot " Paddy by Land and Sea," at the Hanover rooms, with the greatest success. Mr. Wilson has resumed his Scottish minstrelsy in London. His provincial tour has been exceed ingly successful. | Miss Birch is at Milan, accompanied by her mo ther. Mr. Ransford is giving his "Gipsy" entertain ments in London with much success. The Committee appointed at Dresden to receive subscriptions for the erection in that cuy of a mon ument to the memory of the illustrious author of the "Freischutz," have been informed, by order of the King of Prussia, that the entire proceeds of the first opera of Weber performed at the Grand opera at Berlin shull be transmitted to them. Concerts in aid of the same object are to be given by Men delssohn in Berlin, by Liszt in Paris, and by Ben edict in London. The Gazette Muricale says?"The young man who was betrothed to Clara Webster has chosen to die as she did. After having attempted various kinds of suicide, he concluded by setting fire to iiis clothes, and sank under the Bame sufferings as (hose which had deprived him of her whom he ielt it impossible to survive." Where has our Pari lan contemporary picked up this story. Balfe's opera, "The Castle of Avmon" has met with success at the Josephstadt Theatre, in Vien na. Louis Philippe,after the performance at the Tuil leries, made a present to Mr. Macready of a beau ttfnl Eastern dagger, richly mounted with jewels. He also gave a gold bracelet to Mdlle Plessy. With he exception of Mr. Macready and Miss Faucit, io present was made to the English company. A ? aluable gold snuff-box was, however, presented 'o Mr. Mitchell, for the pleasure he had afforded ihe royal family by the representation of Hamlet. We are happy to learn thnt Miss Cushman, the < elebrated American actress, in slowly recovering Irom the illness wiili which she has been visited.

Of these, 62 Virginia and 172 Kentucky leaf were taken for exportation,and 60 Kentucky leaf for re-sale.

Ifcirns' QUnci," we now arrive it a near approximation to the ra tio of increase ut production for the pa?t year. The total amount of exports in some of the principal articlaa enu merated, shows an excess over the returns of 134a. But this increase ia not without important exceptions: for in stance the export of cotton yarn, was, in 1843, 140,314,437 lb and in 1344, only 130,101,013 lb. In cotton thread here Is an increase from 3,404,733 lb. in 1843, to 3 781,039 ,b. in 1844 01 plain calicoes 630,944,031 yards were tent abroad in 1843, and 609,877,703 yard* in 1844. During each of tne dull years, 1840, 1841 and 1843, the amount waa very muck below these figures. In 1843, there were 367, 787,304 yards of printed and dyed calicoea exported ; in 1844 no leu than 313,111,463 yards. In cambrics and muslins we find a falling off from 3,411,981 yards in 1843, lo 3,180,664 in 1844. Hosiery has improved from 334,040 dozens to 379,903 do; while the lace end net return shows a deterioration from 106,417,116 yards to 90 901,931 ditto; of mixed linen and cotton goods 1,309,878 yards went abroad in 1843, and 1,690 389 in 1844 In ginghams and checks a remarkable falling off is exhibited, 3,668,306 yds. in 1843, to 609,378 last year. The export trade in velvet eens and cords seem* gradually declining. It was 8,369, 896 yards in 1840, fluctuated a little above 3,000,080 yards in 1841 '3, fell to 1,831,389 yards in 1843, and to 1,806,616 yards in 1844. Shawla also have fallen from an export of 638,400 dozens in 1843, to 696,300 dozens in the year last past. The stock of cotton in the principal English ports on the 1st of January, 1844, was 786.961 bales or bags; on the same day in 1846, it waa 903,983 bales. The consump tion last year averaged 37,988 bags weekly, allowing ona week for stoppages and accidents. The consumption lor 1843 was within a trifle of thia. The sum ot the evidence goes strongly to show that the "manufacturing revival" baa, for this turn, seen its beat days. Fxeauaitr 3, 1846?Corn?With the exception of a few unimportant sales, nothing worthy of remark has occur red in any branch of the Corn Trade here since our last, and prices remain unalterad Bbl. Flour la very slow of sale, but holders do net show any inclination to aceept reduced rates Of Sweet United State* Flour, in bond, a a few hundred barrels have changed hands at 17a. per bbl.

Any American Tar received has generally come direct to consumers, and, in consequence, we have no busineu to report. Ashes ?A slight concession in prices, on the part of the holders, in the middle of the month, induced dealers to come forward more freely, and several hundred barrel* of Montreal Pots were sold at 33s. 6d. per owt. Some im provement upon thia has ainae been obtained, but the de mand has moderated again. For Pearls there is little inquiry, and prices are barely supported. A small lot of united State* were taken at 33s. per cwt. Par American Bees' Wax ?7 6a. per owt. waa accepted, but It is now held at ?7 10s. for good. The arrivals of Salted North American Hides, from various porta, last month, were 7900, for which the mar ket appeared heavy, but about 6600 aold chiefly at 3|d. a i 3 jd. per lb.

Oil of Turpentine almost nominal. Quercitron Bark has sold rather more freely now that so low quotation* are established; about 300 khda. ware realized at from 7s a 8s per cwt. and none ia now offering under the latter. Seeds?Several large parcels of Cloverseed were brought forward by public sale, and there was a 'air attendance of town and country buyers. For the old American there was no bidding, but fine new red sold with spirit at from 63s a 66s fid per cwt., principally at the latter price,and more would apparently nave brought ?imilar term*.

American Provisions.?This article of American a ports to England ha* become one of auoh importance, hat it la our intention, hereafter, to devote to it great at ention. In our present publication we copy the circular if the highly reapectable houae of Meaera. J. It C. Kirk Patrick, ol this town, largely occupied in thia buaineaa. The buaineaa ot the pait month in general produce kaa been limited on the whole, the aeeaonof the year being uafavorable to any eery extenai ve tranaaotione, while tha opinion which haa been gaining ground in the beat in formed quarters, that future changea are contemplated in our tariff ayatem, induce* all perFona to act with eaution i in their purchases until it la definitely known what artl i clea are to be the subject* of legislation in the aeaaion of I Parliament now about to open. The Bale of American pro duce haa been effected by the a una oauae, though It la oertain that any ohange that may be made in our preaent ariff will be unfavorable to the extenaion of our trade with the United State*. The import* from thence during '.hepaat month have been uuuaually large, land the ahic lauy large arrival* (Uenta now on the way will give us equal in the preaent one. Beef ia now coming in freely, and the beat parcel* have met with a ready aele from the quay at our highest quota tion*, but auoh parcel* aa are inferior in quality, or irre gularly cut, are with difficulty diapoaed of, even at a con rid arable reduction in price.

Its value haa declined somewhat riMu the date of our last advice, Iriah being offered at a rnjwotion of Si per barrel, in consequence of the increas ed Mm petition which it meets from the improved quality of the late arrivals from America. We anticipate, how ?ver, an enlarged demand in the preaent month, and a firm market, the prospect* of thia article continuing very favdtabie, and warranting us in confirming the opinion " expressed, that our fnture supplies of port, aa well will be principally drawn from the United State*. The demand for thia article haa been quiet ; lhamanth, which, with very Urge arrivals, the small stock at the end of the year to be to at least 600 ton*. The home supplies have also been large, but are likely to decrease after thia mouth, when we anticipate a better demand from American ? In the meantime, the stock here being in few hands, ia not likely to be pressed on the market, and we do not look for any material change from present rate*, unless the London market should continue to decline. The mid land districts can now be supplied on better terms there 'ban from our market, which ia one important cauae of the limited demand felt here. Batter?There have been some small arrival* of Ame rican during the month, which have sold, duty paid, at 78a. to 80s. per cwt. for prime parcels. Equal rate* could not not now be obtained, the market for Iriah being low er; but as the stock held here of all kinds is light, we an ticipate a reaction in the course of the month. Urease Butter would have a ready tale at our quota* tiona. Lard has had a very brisk sale, both for barrels and kegs; bat the arrivals oi the latter having been nndnly large in the past week, and Irish being als* in large sup ply and lower in prioe?their value has declined 3s to 8s. per owt.

The i an port for clover seed is large, and tome tales have been made in American at 64? to 67? for prime parcel*. The market is firm for prime nnmixed qualities of now - ed, but old and Inferior parcels are quite unsaleable. Linseed cake haa not sold quite so froely of lato, but no lecLna ia anticipated.

At Manchester the Yarn market is Arm, ana rather higher rates were ob tained for some descriptions last week, and foods, With the exception of 37 inch Printing Cloth*,which were dull and rather lower, were in request at Dill prices. The ac counts from nearly all other parts of the manufacturing districts are somewhat oheering. Hsvee Mabeeti, Jan 81, 1845.?Cottons?During the whole of the present week a considerable degree of activi ty has been displayed in business, which hu been more particularly dtatinguised by a greater speculative spirit than we have witnessed for a long lapse or time. The wil lingness exhibited by holders to run off stock, hu b?en freely responded to on the part of purchasers, the market has been, generally speaking, well supplied, and inde pendent of this, a certain quantity of cotton expected from the Southern ports was offered on sale, especially in New Orleans, of which several lots of ordinary and infe rior grades in the qualities, ranging from 661 a A0f, were taken on speculation The addices up to the 13th inst. from the United Statu, hrouget by the lut packet ships, being looked upon in ra ther a favorable light than otherwise, were in some mea sure instrumental in the animation that hu predominated in the buying, which, coupled with the low rates, induct d -peculators to come forward, and tended to cheok further depreciation. But notwithstanding the briskness in the transactions, and the large amount of the daily sales, pri ces, which might have been expected to undergo some improvement, have remained stationary, and the only change to notice in the aituation of things, is an increased feeling of confidence. The imports since the commence ment of this month amount to 44,444 bales, and although tbay have not exceeded the salu during that period, the outgoings have not been more than 84,444 balu, the sur plus being in the hand* of speculator!.

This weekly paper contains the full re sume of the late interesting foreign news?full re ports of the doings at Washington, and corres pondence from all parts of the world. Prioe 64 cents. Tke Foreign News?The United States In Europe. To the synopsis of the foreign news received at Boston by the steamer, and published exclusively by us yesterday morning, we add to-day an extend ed returns of further details, all of equal impor tance to the commercial, political and general interests of this country. In one aspect the com mercial intelligence is particularly interesting.? The firmness of the price of cotton?the steadi ness in the markets in Liverpool?and the appa rent gradual improvement of trade throughout England, will all tend to have a beneficial effect on the great staples of this country?to give anima tion to the markets in all our southern ports? and to give also strength and vitality to the foreign exchanges In these respects the news is interest ing and very well received. In a political point of view, il would appear that :he present governments of England and France are strengthening themselves in every particular? that by the tact and efforts of Sir Robert Peel, the Repeal agitatiou in Ireland has been divided into two contending factions?that the Pope has been brought to operate on the Irish masses of Catholi city?that Daniel O'Connell is placed in such an awkward position that he is afraid to go to the House of Commons for fear of being shorn of all the residue of his power?and that the private and confidential league between the French and Eng lish Courts is stronger and stronger every day. The French Chambers had been in session a few days at our last dates, but unfortunately the British Par liament was to meet on the day on which the steam er sailed. We shall thus be without farther in telligence in relation to the movements on the. other side of the water in relation to the great American questions of Texas and Oregon, until the arrival of the next steamer. By our former arrivals we were made acquaint ed with the probable fact, that although the French people and French press sympathized with the pol icy of the United States in relation to Texas and Oregon, the French Cabinet and Louis Philippe were engaged in Bome secret piece of diplomacy, concurring in the views of England on these ques tions, which were known to be very hostile to this country, and the movements of our government ? Tn the journals, both French and English, brought by the last steamer, we find but slender allusion to American topics, and they are particularly silent in regard to the important questions just mentioned. The French and English press appears, indeed, co be in a state of suspense, awaiting the bringing up of these subjects in their respective legislatures, the French Chambers and the British House of Commons. In some of the British journals it is, mdeed, hinted that there would be a violent out break on American affairs in both these legislative bodies at a vary early day. Thus far, in the French Chambers, the subject had not been touched, no member having risen in his place to put a question co M. Guizot in order to ascertain what really had been the policy of the French Cabinet?whether hey had given encouragement to Mr. King, or whether they had concurred in the views ot the British government. In thia state of lingular suspense the important American questions of Oregon and Texas stood at the last accounts from Europe. The arrival of the next steamer will, no doubt, put us in possession of <ome very important information on these points, tnd we should not be at all surprised if we found hat secret despatches had been brought over by the " Hibernia," both to the French and English ninisters at Washington, of such a character is had been concurred in by both govern nents. Ia England the opinion is generally expressed by the newspaper press, that Lonis Philippe's Cabinet has been prevaricating on he subject both with the Minister of the United States in Paris, and with the English Minister of Foreign Affairs. Such seems to be the opinion even of the independent portion of the press in Paris.? And it certainly will require a very clear and full explanation fromM. Guizot in the House of Depu tes to free his skirts and that of his ministry of the mputation of this double-dealing in American af fairs. But it is very certain that this extreme si lence in France and England, at the last acounts, bodes no good towards the policy of this country -elative to the annexation of Texas and the occu pation of Oregon. We are very much disposed'to believe that the French government, in order to secure the permanence of the dynasty of Louis Philippe, will side with the British government m these questions, and throw their influence against American progress and American movements.? We are satisfied, however, that this very policy will defeat its aim?that it will throw the dynasty of Louis Philippe in direct collision with the senti ments, feelings and sympathies of the great bulk of the French people. That collision, if it take place, will lay the foundation of a train of events, 'he full result of which no one can predict at this -arly day. It is manifest that we are in the com mencement of great events, both in this country and in Europe. The developments which have just taken place by the capture of Santa Anna, and the discovery of his papers, relative to the designs of England on California?the belief that the British government can, at any mo ment, take possession of the Island of Cuba? the fact that Great Britain occupies Bermuda, and that she has possessions and claims all around the lines and boundaries of the United States, >>oth by land and water, show that the British government is at the head of a great "holy alliance" of the crowned dynasties of Europe, for the purpose of hemming in, hampering and con trolling the destinies and movements of this coun try, for fear of the influence, and effect of our in stitutions on the European masses. We are about to be encircled by British posts?British power? British forts?and British guns; and if an European confederacy can be formed, and united on such a plan, we may rely upon it, its purposes will be carried out to their fullest possible extent, and the principle of self-government?of free, republican government, will receive a serious blow, and the existence of despotic and monarchical institutions be proportioaably prolonged. From these views, it will be seen that the next news from England and France will be highly in teresting. The next arrival will put us in posses sion of the views, probably of both governments, called forth by inquiries made in the legislative as semblies of each. In the meantime, we have no doubt that private negotiations are going on be tween the governments of France and England; ind that secret despatches have been received by their agents in this country, instructing them as to their share in the work of thwarting and frustra ting the policy of our government in its movements on this continent.
