FXVB DATS ZJLTBR FROM EUROPE. Arrival of the Louis Philippe. The Religions Movement In IvltHiUnd. DEBATE ON THE SUGAR BILL IN ENGLAND. THS COTTON NABEST, die. Jkc. The packet ship Louis Phillipe, Capt. Castoft, arrived yesterday irom Havre, whence she sailed on the 8 h ult. Our advices by her are six days latsr Irom France, and two days later from England. The cotton market in Havre was firm, with con siderable sales. We learn, verbally, that there was a slight advance on the 8th, the day the Louis Philippe sailed. The remark of Sir Robert Peel in the House ol Commons, on the 6th instant, that sugar from this country would be admitted on the most favorable terms, is worthy of note. The religions excitement in Switzerlaud had not, at the fast accounts, resulted in any thing fearful. A great commotion was caused in the Church of Saint Roch in Paris, when one of the Princesses Royal, the Duchess d'Aumale, and the Princess Clementine of Saxe Coburg, were present, by the explosion of a grenade during the sermon of M. L'Abbe Olivier. It appears that some villain had placed it so as to explode by the pressure ol a door in opening, near which it was put. No persons were killed, only a few being hurt, but a large number were nearly frightened to death. The Chancellor of the Exchequer had fixed upon the 14th of March for the new sugar duties to take effect. No change in the money market at London. The French Chamber of Deputies were debating with spirit the secret service money bill. The Dutch government has given notice that it will pay off six millions of guilders bearing 4& per cent interest, on the 1st of April, if the holders of these funds do not before the 26th of March con sent to take four per cent. A scene of unusual violence of temper and per sonality had been enacted in the Chamber of De puties, between some half dozen of its members. It came very nearly but not quite to blows. Spain continues unsettled. Its new government is not very firmly seated. The Minister of Commerce has issued a circu lar notice to the ports of the kingdom, announciag that he had decided, in concert with the Minister of Finance, that henceforth captains of foreign ships shall be at liberty to apply either to the Ma rine office, the Custom House, their own Consuls, or to the sworn commercial brokers for certificates of their flags, the tonnage of their vessels, the captain's names, the number of their crews, the nature of their cargoes, and their destinations. The signatures of the foreign consuls or commer cial brokers are to be verified by the sanitary ad ministration. The captains of French ships may take the same certificate either from the Marine office or from the Custom house. Government vhips will continue to receive the same document from the Marine office exclusively. The Paris Prttu has made a discovery that the only object of the English in putting down slavery was to ruin all the colonies of other States, in or der to give importance to its own possessions, ia Which the produce of the earth is obtained by tieans of free labor. The Pruae and Mr. Calhoun seem to agree. The Revue dt Paris says that a naval reinforce ment will be sent immediately to the Pacific ; and adds that it will be accompanied by a scientific commission, charged with a minute examination of the rocks, reefs, and other dangers among the Polynesian islands. The Minister of Finance and the King are said to oppose the project for the conversion of the five per cents. Tne Presse savs:?We are informed that the Minister of ihe Marine is at length about to bring in a bill for a new organization o! the transatlantic packets. According to his plan, steam and can vass are to be so combined as to render each other mutual assistance. A remarkable trial of this com bination of powers has been made by the steamer Arohimede, which is appropriated to the service of the Chinese embassy. The Arohimede, which was built in the government dock yard at Brest, and whose engines were constructed at Creuzot, made use of the propulsion by the wind and that of her Bteam alternately, ana, according to the report made to the Minister of the Marine, attained a rate oi going of from seven to eight knots an hour, sa ving more than one half of the fuel ordinarily con sumed by vessels of the same dimensions and pow er. The results would eertainly have been much more favorable if the Archimede had been fitted with the screw propeller instead of the paddle wheels A great deal is said by the Paris journals of this morning (March 7) about the personalities which took place yesterday in the Chamber of Peers.? Our contemporaries concur in blaming such mani festations as unworthy of the Chamber, but they ore not at ail agreed as to their origin, whilst tbe Debats, for instance, attacks Count Mole, and de clares that his remarks were wholly unjustifiable, M. de Salvandy having in his speech abstained from personalities, ana taken high and dignified ground, some of the opposition journals pretend that first M. Guizot and next M. Salvandy, had provoked by gross personalities the retort of Count Mole. England. We have received the London journals of Wed nesday. March lib, from which extracts will be found below. It will be seen that an interesting discussion took place on the resolutions of the committee for regulating the railway bills before Parliament. No other business of importance took place. After a variety of preliminary business, the House went into a discussion on the income tax, which from the tone of the speakers, Mr Baring, the ex Chancellor of the Exchequer, and leading financier of the opposition side, having expressed his approbation of the tax, appears likely to pass without alteration. British Parliament.? House or Commons, Maich 5 ?Importation or Svoar.?Mr Thornk ly had been informed that that day, there had ar rived in the port of London samples of sugar from New Orleans, the produce of slave labor. What he wished to know was, whether this sugar, as well as that imported from Louisiana and other slave countries, would be admitted into thin coun try upon the same teims as sugar imported from Java and Manilla 1 Sir R. Perl said that those countries of the United States in which sugar was produced by slave labor, and admitted into England, were coun tries with which this kingdom had at present re ciprocity treaties. With regard to the arrival an nounced by the honorable member, he, Sir. R Peel, begged to say, he had had no intimation whatever of it; but he would say,that at present ihat sugar would not be admissible on the same terms as sugar, the produce of the countries men tioned by tne honorable member. But ke would add, that he had no hesitation in saying that sugar, the produce of the United States, included under the reciprocity treaties, would be admitted under the proposed advantages. Mr. Thornely was very glad to hear that an nouncement from the right honorable baronet, as a new aad very extensive trade in sugar was about to be opened with the countries he had named, to which this altered state of the law would be of great importanee. Mr. Ewaet wished to know whether it was not the fact that slave-grown sugar, admitted at the re duced duty Irom the United States, would under sell the free labor sugar of Mauritius and Java. on. R. 1 bel was understood te say that he was nj>t prepared with an answer. tpslm JJ2aJ,rid J?urna'?o? the 28th ult, like those ? >f the 27th, are destitute of news. The Heraldo, noticing n report that several of the officiating cler ?iy in Madrid and in the provinces had indulged in political allusions, and forbidden to their flocka the rendiHR of the translation of Eugene Sue's no vel oi the Jnif Errant, on acoount of the attacks that it contains on the Jesuits, expreasss its regret at this spirit of Intolerance The same journal eoatradiots a rumor thai was ourrant of the go vernment of the Havana having prohibited the reading of M. Sue's work. The Chamber of De puties met on the 28th, but there was no business of interest before it. M Cortina, the chief of the Progressist party in Spain, has been elected deputy for Salamanca, by a large majority. There is very little worthy of notice in the Madrid journals of the 27th ult. The only fact indeed ot the slightest interest, it it be a fact, is in the Eco del Comercio. This journal states that the Jesuits are actively at work in Andalusia for the purpose of restoring the old order of things, and have opened direct relations with Lisbon and Rome. Fortagsli By the Lisbon mail, to the 26th ult., it appears that her Majesty was likely to carry into effect her nBxiously desired purpose of granting an amnesty to the persona engaged in the late revolt, and now in exile in Spain and elsewhere. The Bill lor the abolition of the Conservalorial its defini tive form, had been laid before the Chamber of Deputies. A project of law for the abolition ot slavery in all the Portuguese possessions, in the o**e ot children born after the date ot the promul gation of the nroposed taw, was presented to the Chamber of Peers, and transferred to the Special Anti-Slavery Committee. Another project of a very diff-reht kind, imposing penalties of inordi nate severity in esses of smuggling of corn into the country, was introduced by Ministers. The Custom house receipts of Lisbon, Oporto, and Sete Casas, for the month of January, had greatly I alien off. The prosecutions for libels on the Go vernment had again commenced. The first of six state prosecutions against an editor was heard on the 17th ult, and terminated in an acquittal.? A new financial statement, and a project of the capitalist Roma, on an extraordinary scale of mag nitude, for the conversion of the interest of the foreign debt, and habilitating the Government to effect that object, and meet outstanding engage ments, had been submitted, it was reported to Hie Minister Cabral, and had been sanctioned by him. It was likely to be laid before the Cortes, notwith standing the ministers Castro and Tojal were said to be unfavorable to it. The matter was Baid to be the subject of differences between Senhor Cabral and his colleagues, and of altercations between the Count Tojal and Senhor Roma. At the bot tom of every financial measure in Portugal, a small incidental proposal fora large loan is usually found; in the present case, no doubt, Senhor Roma will not disappoint his patrons, or forego the opportunity of doing a little business with them. Svrltxsrland. The last accounts from Switzerland contain no thing of any importance. On the 3d instant, the diet continued the discussion on the measures to be adopted respecting the Jesuists. On the 4th the debate was resumed, and the various deputies took part in it. The decision was expected in the course of that day. A Turin letter of the 1st instant, states that the government of Sardinia has callea out its contin gent in order to strengthen the garrisons of Pied mont and Savoy, and to form military cordons along the Swiss frontiers. Some troops have been marched to the Valley of Aoste, within which the Canton oi Vallate is enclosed, as it were, and also to Cluse, in Savoy, which adjoins the Vaud. The Diet Ex'raordinary, which was opened at Zurich on the 24tb ult., is one of the most impor tant assemblies which has ever been held by the Helvetic Confederation. The whole country may be said to be already in arms. The local prejudi ces of the people, aided by religious fanatacism on the one side, and revolutionary violence on| the other, are animated to the highest pitch. In some of the Cantons the Government has already been subverted on the question of the instructions to be given to the delegates At this Diet; and the popu lace oi the Canton de Vaud, in a state of brutal ex citement, which is compared to that of the French in 1793, are threatening to inyade their neighbors as soon as the snows are melted, in order to drive the Jesuits from Frtburg and the Valais, or to turn the scale in tavor of the revolutionary party by overthrowing the more conservative Government of Geneva. In the Diet the equality of the two parties perhaps increases the danger of the country; for, it the Radicals are unable to carry their measures of interference and coercion u> the Catholic cantons by constitutional means, tbey will unquestionable resort to violence; and, if '.hey do carry such measures by influence or by in timidation, the Catholic cantons are prepared to resist by arms the arbitrary interference of a bare majority in matters so nearly affecting their reli gious rights and their cantonal independence. Un happily, throughout Switzerland, the violence of the people exceeds th/\t of the Governments. In the oanton of Berne, which has for several years been in the hands of the Radical party, the leaders of the people are themselves likely to fall vic tims to the atrocious principles that have been gaining ground for some time, even among the pea-1 Germany! The Univertal Gazette, ef Prussia, publishes the official returns ot the export, import, and transit duties received by the German Customs Union in 1844 They amounted to 26,471.494 thalera; being 1,106,124 thalers more than in 1843. Sweden. A letter from Stockholm of the 14th ult. says:? " The bill for equally dividing the family property, after disease, between all children, without dis tinction of age, and which has been adopted by the three States of the clergy, burgesses, and peasants, has jnst been rejected by the State of the nobility, after a long and stormy discussion. The numbers were 173 against it, and 72 in its favor. As the adoption of the bill in the three other States, with the Royal sanction, would be sufficient to convert iLuito law, the State ot the Nobles, by the same 4%ority, at once came to the determination of sending an humble petition to the King, beseech ing his Majesty not to sanction the bill; because, it the custom of equally dividing property after de cease might suit to a certain point the other classes of society, it was totally unfit for the nobility; and to establish such a system with reaped to them, would be to attack one of their inalienable rights, and to inflict a most serious, if not irreparable in jury on one of their greatest interests. Baron Jean de Cederstroem, who voted with the minority, protested solemnly against this resolution, which he designated as unconstitutional and insulting to the great majority of the Swedish nation.. Tarktjn A letter from Constantinople of the 12th ult., states that the representatives of the five great pow ers, not having been able in their first csnference to come to sn understanding as to the reply to be made to the note of the Turkish ministry relative to its project for settling the differences in the Le banon, had held a second meeting, at which they agreed to a collective note. It appears, however, that the ambassadors refuse to take upon themselves to accept or reject the propositions of the Porte, and announce that they must apply for instructions to their respective courts. . India and China We have received Bombay papers to 1st Februa ry, with intelligence from other parts of India to corresponding dates, and from China to the 18th December. The news from the Celestial Empire is totally without importance; but the accounts of the desultory though harrassing warfare carrying on in Kolapore will be found of considerable interest. The troubles in the Kolapore and Sawunt Warree country,and the formidable robberies in the North ern Goncan, continue almost unabated, in defiance of the efforts of an army of 12,000 men, scattered in detachments above and below the Ghauts.

Trlfcl of "Big Thunder," Use Antl-Henter, at Hudson. Court of Oyer and Terminer. Saturday, 7 o'clock, P. M. AFTERNOON BKB8I0N. 4 dense crowd filled the Court room fully half an hour before the Judge* took their seats; a large number of la dioa among the reat, for (whom convenient places were set apart by order of the Court, the male portion of the audience disposing ol themselves a* they beat could; every thing showed that the charge of Judge Parker .to the Jury was looked forward to with intense interest. Judoe Parser then addressed the Jury, saying?It had given him great pleesure to bear witness to the prompti tude and faithful attention they had given to this case; and judging from what he had seen of them, there was every reason to believe they would honestly discharge their duty. The duty which devolved upon them was most Important?of vast consequence to their conscien ces, to the public,considered with reference to the excite ment that now pervaded the country. It was a most im portant trial, both to the prisoner whose liberty was at stake, and to the public, who required that if his guilt be established the lawshould be enforced,and that theyshould seo that it be not overthrown, butsustained, as it was enac ted to protect their lamilies, their persons and theii pro perty. He doubted not.therefore.that they (the Jurv) would come to their task, fully sensible of their respocsibillty. The prisoner stood indicted for the serious crime of rob bery?of itself a most serious offence, and one unusual in this country. Robbery was the vi dent taking trom the person of another his property, by superior force, aHd against the will of the owner: intrinsically, then, it was a orlme of great magnitude; but in the case befsre iHem it was infinitely greater than in ordinary cases, for it is an act of robbery?if it be proved such?on one of the high, est officers of your county, and a violation in his person of the law* of the coantry, under whose authority he acts. In the discussion of this case, two considerations would arise?first, has an act of robbery been committed and secondly hss it been committed by the prisoner at the bar. It 11 conceded by counsel for prisoner that an offence has been oommitted. The Sheriff has related to you minutely, all the circumstance* ol this crime, and his deputy, Walter Shaver, has given his ver sion of the transaction, more particularly as to what was said tnan done, from all which testimony none could doubt that the Sheriff had beeu resisted in the execution of the law, and the only question next was, did the act committed constitute robbery? There was a question of liyr involved in that to which he would call the particu lar attention of the Jury. Robbery is defined in the sta tute in this language : "Every person who shall be con victed of feloniously taking the personal property of ano ther from his person, or in nis presence, and against his will by violence to his person, or by putting such person in fear of some immediate injury to his person, shall be adjudged guilty of tobhery in the first degree." If then the papers taken were the property of the Sheriff, It must be shown by the prosecution tbey were taken against bis will, on which they had the whole testimony of the Sheriff and Walter 9hav r, and it was a matter of indif ference which of thsm, although differing in some parti cular, they should adopt; it could hardly for a moment tm entertained, that the Sheriff having these pspers in hp possession, and employed in his duty, went out tlTre wLh she disposition to give them up. It appeared from the evidence thst he parted with them unwillingly, and none had been offered by the defence i'i any way going to show why he delivered his papers, if not by reason of force on this occasion. But it is also necessary to ahow that these papers were property, sueh as the statute defines to be the subject of robbery, (fudge Parker here read that part of the statute bearing upon the point ) The article! taken from the Sheriff were three distress warranta and a declaration he had to serve The object of the statute was to explain all thing* that could be called property, and among these were " evidences of | rights in action." Now, if these distress warrant* were evidences of hia authority to sell, in the opinion of the Cfcnrt they wereproperty, end he had a right to retain them as such. These papers were the evidences of the right under whioh he might sustsin an action if the pro perty seized to be sold was taken away. It is the opinion then, of the Court, that these papers were property within the definition of the statute. It was true, as had been stated by prisoner's counsel, that they (the jury,) were judges of the law as well as ol fact, and also that it was the duty ot the Court to state its views cf the law , but if it should be mistaken in thoae-view*. thev bad but to be regulated by their own judgment!. The Court, then, has only to express the opinion of which it has ittie doubt, that the taking of the Sheriff's papers was beyond ques tion a robbery- Bj far the moat important question for | your deliberation is, was this offence committed by the prisoner at the bar ? If the view taken be true, a rebbery had been committed. The Sheriff went ont to Copake te discharge bis dnty?was surrounded by armed men, who presented at him pistols and awords, and it mattered but | little at what point of time he consented to yield the pa per*, if thev were yielded through fear of the force sur rounding him, and in consequence of the claim made by the armed men In ascertaining the question was it the prisoner at the bar who perpetrated the rob bery? it was not necessary, te sustain this action,to preve that he was the man who held the sword and pointed the pistol at the Sheriff; for if he was one of them, he was just guilty as if he had done it with hi? own hand; but >t must t>e clearly proved that he participated in it, and if they had any reasonable doubt in their minds, they were to give the prisoner the benefit of it and acquit him; httt they would violate their oatha if they did not weigh the evidence and convince their minds as to the charge. He did not propose, at that late hour of the night, and after such a long trial, to call their attention minutely to the testimony that bad been adduced on both sides, but mere ly to give their minda a direction, leaving thrm to ex amine the very full summing up of counsel on both sides Whoever did the act was disguised, and it was therefore very difficult to come at who did it. (The Judge here en tered into a recapitulation of the leading and most essen tint parts of the testimony, in an explicit manner and con tinued.) It is alleged bv the deience that the want of similarity between Big Thunder at Smokey Hollow and Big Thunder at Copake, is to be attended to, and much evidence was adduced to prove they were not the same person. Some had said one was larger and taller than the prisoner at the bar, from two to four inches. This is met by counsel for the prosecution by saying that in that dis guise he would appear taller than in ordinary dress; this was a matter for the consideration of the jury. ? The pri soner's counsel had further adduced teatimony to show that prisoner was not Big Thunder when the papers were taken from the fact that at the time that chief was in the ring Dr. Boughton was In citizen's dress, standing in or near the tavern. This was an important point and should be looked to, for if it a ere ptevod it would bo conclusive to the mind ; but it is met by the prosecution, who say that either some other per son had assumed the character of Big Thunder, or that witness had been mistaken in saying he had seen Di Boughton at one and the aame time with Big Thunder Tbeae would require a cloa* consideration ; the Court would not expreaa an opinion, but lsave it to them to get at the faota aa well aa they oould from the evidence Among others, perhaps the strongest fact on the part of the prosecution was that prisoner came to Bain'a with Belding, staid over night, breakfasted next morning, and was not seen till alter dinner; after that time he was seen, and it was a strong fact that prisoner bad not ac counted for himself during the interval; It was strange that nobody waa produced to prove thev had seen him du ring the time the outrage occurred, and it is regarded by the proaecntion aa in the power, and the duty of the pri soner to account for himself during that time. The jurv waa to decide on this important queation, and their minds must be satisfied that the prisoner was the man called Big Thunder on that occasion before they could find him guilty, and the prosecution were bound to make out their case strongly, as they (the Jury) were to give him the benefit of any doubt ere they could convict him. In de ciding this question he rautioned them to lay aside all sympathy There might be aome among them who had oontraoted prejudice againat the prisoner ; that must he guarded against. On the other hand there might be gentlemen on that jury who felt strongly on the question that gave rise to thaoe prosecutions. They had already been told that these matter* had nothing to do with hi* trial. Theae questions oould be in vestigated without the law being violated. The law waa as necessary to tha tenant aa the landlord, and if any entered the jnry box with personal feeling* in the matter, it would he hi* dnty to discharge it from hia mind, aa he valued hi* future happiness Aa to the ques tion of fact, it belonged exclusively te the jury, and was a question of extreme importance. He hoped tbey would agree on a verdict. Many considerations made it de airable that in one way or another they shonld come to some satisfactory conclusion?eithartthat tha prisoner should he disposed ot definitely, or that his case might he ?ithmitted to another tribunal tor its decision His Honor Judge Pauses, who was listened to with ptilound attention by a vast assembly, finished his charge Bbont 10 o'clock, having occupied nbont three quarter* ot I an hour, whilst Counsel on each aide had spoken for five h inrs a piece in summing up The jury alter a hard night* debate upon the issue submitted to them, came into Court next morning at halfpeat 10 and declared that they were unable to agree, and that there was no probability of their agreement They were therefore discharged, the Judge expressing his sxtreme regret si the necessity for doing se Common Council.
