The mammoth packet ship Queen of the West, Capt. Woodhouse, arrived yesterday morning from Liverpool. She sailed thence on the 7th alt. This great ship has brought four hundred and fifty steerage passengers; thereby increasing the wealth of this country in labor, Jec. at least $60,000. There appears to be very little news in the pa pers. There was a great deal of activity in the Liver pool cotton market, and large sales were made. Prices were very firm, but no higher than on the 4th instant. Some acooants state that there has been an advance of an eight of a penny per pound ; but these accounts are incorrect. See " Money Article" in to-day's paper. The news from India which ws gave yesterday, is looked upon as important. There will always be trouble in that section so long as England con tinues her aggressions. The London money market was easy. Charlotte Cushman continues to carry all before her in London. The Income Tax passed through committee on Wednesday evening, March 5, with hardly a show of opposition, in a thin House, only mustering 119 at the division. We have given elsewhere a sketch of the discussion, and we refer, with feelings of dis gust and indignation to the insolent and taunting tone of jocularity with which Sir Robert Peel met all suggestions for the improvement of his own precious bantling. A time will come when they will be remembered to his cost. The income tax, then, is to be continued for three years certain,and he who believes that it will be taken oflf at the end of that period, voluntarily at least, must be endowed with an amazing fund cf superstition ? The vague promises ot Sir Robert Peel and the Chancellor of the Exchequer are allso much moon shine. The new Peel Tariff has made but slow progress since our last, marred as it is by the omission of all reference to corn, provisions, and tea, by a most absurd and mischievous arrangement ot the sugar duties, and by the retention ot all the ini quities of the income tax. Peel's income tax may act as a premium on im morality? thus: a man and woman, with ?149 a year each, agreeing to live together without the ceremony ot marriage, escape the tax; whereas if thoy marry, thev are immediately down for a uni ted income of ?293, and a tax of ?9 18a 8d. It was reported that Mr. Gladstone was about to re-enter the Cabinet, in a higher post than the one lie resigned. It was said too that he had reconsi dered the subject ot educational grants for Ireland and was prepared to co-operate with the Ministry on that question. Sir Robert Peel has announced that Government will bring forward a measure to remove the civil disabilities of the Jews. A bill is before the House of Commons, making provision for garden allotments to the poor, from common lands. The Government was not unfa vorable to the principle of the bill. Several petitions havebeen|presented ia theHouse of Lords, praying for a revision ot the rubrics of the church of England. The presentation of the petition gave opportunity to the Buhop of Exter to explain?he denied any necessity to defend himselt ?his conduct in tbe movements that have recently transpiied. His chiet argument was that having found diversities of practice in his diocese, he judged it right to enforce uniformity. He contend ed that all spiritual power was vestedlin the cletgy, and that the Crown had no right to impose rubrics, and concluded by commenting with some asperity upon the petitions and cautioning the House against constitaMiag themselves a "committee on religion,'' aa had been done by their ancestora in 1641. It is said that a serious split has taken place be tween tbe leading members of the Rapeui Commit tee on the question of mixed education, Mr O'Connell opposing, and Mr. W. S. O'Brien and Young Ireland supporting it. Sir Robert Peel, who ia now so horrified at slavery, votedfgot very long ago, against the abo lition of female flogging in the West Indies. A letter from Mona D'Abudie, dated Aden, Oct. 17, states that he has discovered the source of the White Nile, in the Ganira country. Importation of Slavs-grown Sugar.?On Sun day lost the American ship Fraucoma arrived in this port, bringing (as part of her cargo,) twelve hogsheads of Louisiana sugar. This is the first ar rival of American grown sugar in this country; but we suspect a is only the beginning of a trade which will, in a tew years, become a very considerable one, if thejnew sugar duties of Sir Robert Peel should pass in their present form. According to the provisions of the proposed bill, the sugars ot the Uaitad States are to be admitted without dis pute or difficulty, on the same footing as the free labor sugars of Java and Manilla; the Minister, in deed, having no power, under existing treaties with the United States, to admit the one*and exclude the other; and as the sugars of the nations not pos sessing such treaties, in which slavery exists, are not to have this advantage, the sugar planters ot the United States will have a superiority over the planters of Cuba and Brazil, which will secure them pretty rly a monopoly of slave grown su gar i' e hnglisli market. On Saturday last we naw t pics of two other expected lots of Ameri can sugar; both of which had been examined by a sugar broker, who states that they will leave a handsome profit (at least ten per cent) in this coun try, even il the price ot sugar should tall to the full extent of the duty repealed. The prices,therelore, are no obstacle; and what readers it still more likely that this trade will become considerable, is that the sugar crop in Louisiana was last year much the largest ever known, and the price so moderate that a gentleman who was on one of the sugar plantations between New Orleans and Belize about three months ago, was offered any quantity of su gar at the rate of 3 7 8 cents?that is, at less than 3d. per pound.?Liverpool Timet Assam Tea.?There has this week been the largest sale of Assam tea ever offered. It com prised 1233 chesta, imported by the Aaaam Compa ny from i heir own eatatea ana 64 cbeatg on private aecount. The Assam Company have received moat favorable accounts from their plantations, and some individuals have associated themselves here under the uatne of the Assam Company, to see this description of tea fairly brought before the public in its genuine state. The larga amount of British capital staked in the experiment renders it n matter of considerable interest; and it is satisfacto ry to learn that the quality is decidedly improving, and that the fine class black descriptions excited much competition, realizing very full prices, say %? to 3s 101 per lb.? London 9mm, March t. The Rzv. Da. Wolff ?The following letter has just been received by Captain Graven? " Mt dcar OaoTsa?How shall I thank pan for your great, great kindness 7 Bat I mast conies* that whan I heard you were gone to 8t. Petersbnrgh, I trembled, for 1 was afraid you woald have gone to Bokhara with letter* from the Emperor.

God be praised that you did not go to Bokhara. I made the whole journey from Bok hara to Maafasd on horsebxek, with a rupture got at Bok hare, and without a bandage; alto from Meshed to Te heran, another 400 miles; and from Teheran to Tahria. MO milaa. At Tabrit i was taken Ul with a bilious fever, which dttalaed ma (fifteen days. Tha Russian Consul, at Tahria, made ma a preseat of a tuck rawan (litter), which conveyed mo to Awajick, lOOmilea; but from thla idaoe to Erxaroem, tha mountains covered with snow, and tha horrid precipices, prevented the pas sage of a tuckrewen, and I waa obliged to travel 300 miles under continual agonies, and at night eaten up by lice and float. At H*s*sn Ksleh great was my Joy at finding .i turkrawan, belonging ta the Patha of Eiseroom. which *a. sent on through the kindness of our good, banevo lent, excellent, kind-hearted, and dear Colonel William* whose equal is tcsroely to be found in this world At nine miles from Erxeroom Colonel Williams came hlassall to meet me. I we* in tnch a distressed state, that 1 wtt ?ahsin at once to a Turkish bath, and waa anppiied with fresh clothing, and I was obliged to usa meroury Bve day* before I could get rid of the troublesome parasites, and I was then so debilitated that I could not atond upon my lega Thank* be ta God for hi* lovlng kiqdneas la sending ma such friend* as Colonel Williams and Mr. and Mrs. Kedhouse, who have taken such tender car* of ihat I am now able to record to my friend* in England he hindiieaa of tho?e excellent Irienda.

It waa my intention to have brought with me to Eng land Moolah Mebdee, the kind Jow of Meshed, but Colo nola Williama and Farrant persuaded me to aend him back to Meahad. Youra affectionately, Eizeroom, Jan. 17. JOSEPH WOLFF. Nott by Cupt. Qiover.?Mr. Burcbardt (beat known aa Bhcikh Israhim) travel sed the desert from the Horam to Cairo. On arriving at the Engliih Consul'a, where he waa hospitably received, he rrqueated to be allowed im mediately to chango hia clothes Having made a bundle of the clothes he had worn, he aail to the servant, " My good fellow, quick '. take away that bundle ; or if you do not make haste, (alluding to the vermin,) it will walk away!" Theatricals. Miss Cuahman played Mrs. Hallerinthe Stranger on Tusday night, at the Princes*' Theatre, and as sumed the part with that earnestness which has marked the whole coursaof her performances. So thoroughly did she imbue herself with ih& feel ings of the penitent sinner, that not a phrase, not a word was uttered, that did not naturally fl >w from the position of the character. To represent the in tensity of grief, ahe avoided every thing like loud ness or external force, even at the occasional risk of being ineffective; but so truthful, so very real was ths weight of mourufulness, that the impression which was evidently made on the actress by her own conceptioii| was exteuded to the entire audi ence. One little delicate touch they missed It was when she alluded to the blessing of a clear con science in the early part of ttie play, when the painful glance of thought was admirably represent ed by the slightest interruption to the generally equal delivery. The effect of the last scene could net be excelled. There were no bursts, no sudden variations, but the whole sole of the woman ap peared to be melted into silent overwhelming leans. At thia conclusion there was scarcely a dry eye in the house, and we have hardly ever kuown such audible weeping in an audience. Miss Cushniau adopts the reading in use of late years, of making Mrs Hallvr fall senselessat the feel of ihe Stranger, instead of rushing into his arms. When she was called beiore the curtain, the tff cts of the excite ment, showing th itsae had in great measure parti cipated in the feelings she had depicted, were visi ble in her countenance The audience was aa en thusiastic as they have been on every night of her appearance, utteily confuting the odd notion,which we have heaid rxpressed, that American perform ers cannot meet a tair reception in this country. A want of generous feeling towards foreigners is the last fault that the English can be charged with; in deed, our own artists accuse us, with more reason, of running into the opposite extreme, and of reck lessly preferring the foreign to the domestic. The Stranger wes played by Mr Wallaok in a very sa tisfactory manner.?.London limes, March 6.

[Correspondence ot the Herald ] Boston, March 31,1846 Judge Story'i Ren gnat ion?Harvard College?Sue ceuor to the Judgeship?Secretary Bancroft'? De pur lure?Lecture* on Europe?-Blue Stocking Soi riet, fc I mentioned to you the other day that Edward Everett, and the Rev. Dr. Walker, were the pro minent candidates to succeed Mr. Quincy, as Presi dent ol Harvard College. Since then I have heard the name ot Judge 8tory, of the U. S. Supreme Court mentioned. It is said that Story intends to resign his seat on the Bench, and would be glad to rusticate amid the shades of Harvard. It so, he lias only to ask for it and get it. The Judge has Tor a long time been pleasantly and honorably con nected with the University, aa Professor of Law, at the Law School, and is highly popular with the students in that department I have, in timeB past, sit under hits lectures, and with great satisfaction and profit. He is a most amiable and dignified man, whose presence commands the highest re spect. As to his talents and attainments, you know about them as well as i do. and tew, it any of your readers can be ignorant of their surpassing character. As to who will succeed Story as Judge, d he resigns, I think there may be some doubt Morton is doubilrss the most prominent man, and ihe best qualified of any oue likely to be thought of, and would make a solid and valuable Judge L-vi Woodbury, without the judicial talents ol Morton, has yet made bolder professions ot .State right doctrines upon the constitution, aud fui that reason has commended himself well to the south As the Supreme Court of the United States is looked upon in that section of the Union as the great safe-guard ot slavery, it is not improbable that southeru politicians at the present moment wou'd mike a tremendous effort to have Mr Woodbury appoinied in preference to any other man II you ask what the sentiment of New England would be, I should say decidedly in favor of Gov. Morton. Both of them are brilliant men, and would do honor to the bench. Mr. Bancroft, the new Secretary of the Navy, lam told,leaves town on his return to Washington to-morrow morning, having completed his arrange ments for the;removal ot his family to Washington. He will probably stop in New York on his way, aud visit your navy yard. You must see him, and make his acquaintance, for I am told he is a most estimable man, and easily accessible, as a public officer of the democratic school should be. The it isdom of the Massachusetts appointments is sole ly attnbuted to his influence with the President, and you can judge from them that he has moral courage, sagacity, and a lofty perception of the The "i ~ true policy of government. The " ins" are de lighted with hiB movements thus far, and the " outs" lorbear to grumble, but attribute their ill luck to the fortune of war. Our most faithful sol lier of the loco army, B. F Hallett, sometimes called " the soldier of fortune," has not received his reward, and I am told growls like a bear with a sore head. This is all out of character with such a veteran campaigner, and to say the least, his pleasant looks, and plump, well fed form, bslie the J statement. But he will yet get his sop, I am think ing. Nous verrons. Dr. Baird continues his lectures on Europe, to fuller and fuller audiences at every succeeding evening. They are highly interesting, and alto-1 gether unique. So popular has he become among our savant, that a very celebrated blue-Blocking, who uvea in splendid style in Beacon street, and who has travelled much iu Europe, absolutely post poned a grand party, because the evening interfered with one ot the doctor's regular course. And it was wise, for probably one half of her intended guests were anxious to hear the lecture on that evening, and would have fasted to bless their eyes with a sight of her ceruliau nose. By the way. Dr. Hitchcock, the leading dentist of Boston, is the instigator of these celebrated lectures, and de-' serves the credit of them. Had it not been for I him, Dr. Iiaird would never have thought his mat ter of sufficient interest to gather together an audi- [ ence when the season lor lectures is thus passe.

Of the state ot the City Prison, they speak generally in the most desparaging terms. Of Eld ridge iuh?t pri son rather more favorably. Ot the state of the prison on Black well's island, it states thare are confined 972 prison ers?males St 0, females 473. Of the above number of male prisoners, 90 are colored, and 410 white. Ot the white 22S were committed as va grant, lor terms varying Irom one to six months; and the remaining 186are (mm court, for various petty offen ces, and for various periods of time. Of the 90 colored male prisoners, 65 are here as vagrants, and the remain ing 35 are court convicts. Of the whole number of fe males, 438 are white, and 34 colored. Of the letter 18 are vagrants, and 16 convicts Irom court. Of the whitss 438 ui e vagrants, and 18 convicts. There are 496 eells in all - 240 in themaie apartment, and 366 in the female. Of tlie above number of maies, there are about 100 or U( wards who do not sleep in the prison, which yen wi perceive leeves about 400 to be eccommcdstsd with 9 cells. Of the femsles, there are only about 173 that lodge in the building, the other* being scattered at Bellevne, 1.uantic Asylum, Nurseries, Hospital, Ice. ho., which leaves abundant ceil room lor the iemales, aa the institu tion is at present organised and conducted. First, that ot 972, the whole number of prisoners, 798 are vagrants , 390 males and 438 ft males. A large pro iioition of the male vagi ants, and prob-bly three fourths of the females, were committed on their own application, or confession The oauses of vagrancy, generally, are drink and licentiousnesa.
