ovrne, utid had decided on addressing a declaration to tlu: 1 Het. General Sonnenberg had published an order of ilie day, condemning the treatment of the prisoners, and rei oinnicnding that they .should be more humanely treHted. A general annuity had been granted to ail iiersoiis under twenty years of age This Extraordinary Diet of Switzerland nu t again on the J Mil instant, when, on the motion of M. Sail, dejHa^ for St. Gall, a majority of twelve canton* vot ed a "a recommendation," instead of an "invitation" to Lucerne, to issue an amnesty. A Mtuilarproposal relative to the cantons of Argau, Valais, and Tessino was not adopted. A sum of 250,01)0 .Swiss francs, to be supplied by the federal treasury, was voted for defraying the expenses occasioned by the calling out of the federal contingents. On the 12th the question of reducing the number of troops called out by the Vorort was to come under discussion. Several edi tors of radical newspa|ier8 are stated to have been killed or captured in theex|>edition against Lucerne. Germany. l.inrDATio.1* tsr Belgium awd Germahy.?The Flemish |><i|H'rs contains sud accounts of inundations in various (Nirts of Belgium and Germany, arising from the change of the weather. At Mayenne, on the 30th ult. the Khine was at an elevation which it iiad not attained in 1844, and the villages in that quar ter had sullered much inconsequence. At Worms, no communication could take place otherwise than by boats. The Danube, arisin<; above its limits, had inundated the contiguous lanus. At Nuremburg, the well known Co/respondent, could not be brought out as usual, the waters having rendered the printing of fice inaccessible. The Gazette ilc Cobltntz , of March 80, slates that the village of Nessendorf, is under water, and that the Moselle, bursting from its proper bounds, has Hooded the tract formerly covered by it, but latterly used as pasturage. The distress of' the people below Lbrenoreitstein, the streets of which were submerged, is very great, notwithstanding that succour has tieen liberally distributed among the i poor victims of the inundation At Mayence, on the | 1st inst., the waters were beginning to retire in i some degree. Letters f rom Dresden of the date of March 30, describe the waters of the Elbe to be high er than they have been at any time since 1784. The cathedral church, situated in the old town, is sub merged, as well as the royal stables. There was no communication between one part of the city and ano ther except by boats. The river was still rising, and houses^were constantly abandoned, the damage done in different quarters proving enormous. Accounts from Bremen, of March 31, state that at an earlyjhour that morning the dikes of the Weser gave way at a point where such a calamity could have been least expected. The waters were rushing forth with ama ling impetuosity, carrying with them trees and moveables of all kinds, including the wrecks of hu man habitations. By ten o'clock a dozen houses had been overthrown by the floods, and before the day was out no fewer than 38 were destroyed. The num ber of poor creatures who had fallen victims to the catastrophe was not ascertained, but it was necessa rily considerable,since no danger in this part had been apprehended, and the inhabitants were wholly un prepared for It. Numbers had taken refuge on the roofs of their dwellings, and there was great dif ficulty in rendering them any assistance. The accounts from all parts of the Elbe received at Bremen were afllictlng. The waters were still rising. Advices from Anenbach of the 1st inst. an nounce that half that town is under water, the river having risen to a height quite unprecedented. The damage caused by the floods in the town is estimated at 100,000 guilders, and it was feared that disease woula show itself among families obliged to remain in the midst of this "mortal humidity. The Reiw de Pari* states that the greatest inundation of which Germany has during two centuries preserved the re collection were those of 1655 and 1784; nevertheless, neither of those events was so disastrous as the in undations of the-present vear. The entire Germanic confederation, apart of Austria, and of Poland, have been literally under water since the 30th of March.? The Rhine,"the Maine, the Neckar, the Danube, the Elbe, the Vistula, have in succession overflowed their banks, not in a day, but in an hour. Frankfort, Menu, Cologne, Dresden. Prague, and a number of other towns, ana several thousand villages, were co vered with water. The magnificent bridge of Dres den has been carried away, and many edifices have been destroyed. In the midst of the general desola tion, public charity has not remained inactive. Com mittees have been formed of the cities. and assist ance has been afforded in every direction. At the head of the Committees are inscribed the names of kings, princes, ministers, generals, provincial gover nors, and bishops. One committee collected at Ber lin, between the 1st and 17th of April, 101,792 thalers, (?16.000 British.) Theatrical*, ?Vc. Mad.oik Castellan.?This urtist, who made her appearance at Her Majesty's Theatre, in London, n short time previous to the sailing of the packet, has been on the whole very successful. The London Standard says?Her triumph was the greater, as in all respects the position of Madame Castellan was most trying?the task of performing a character fa miliar to the English public through the interpreta tion of Madame Pcrsiani. This singer is, without compare, the greatest mistress of vocalisation on the Italian stage: her musical Jioriture and chroma tic passages would be stereotyped in print, were it not that they arc so varied aii<l beautifully eccentric that they escape imitation. The principal beauty of the voice, however, does not lie in this power alone. ?as an instrument and a means of execution it is surpassed by every good violin, whether touched by the Helgic Vieuxtempe or the dancing St. Leon. Madame Castellan makes us feel its real source Of superiority?as an interpretation of the passions and of the feelings; her reading of the part of Aminn is totally different, it is all expression and nathos?and to render the contrast and the varying shades of her feelings, when Amina't dreams arc the remem brance of misery, and she has recourse to prayer as her last resource, and then suddenly awakens to the ponsciousness and ecstacy of unexpected happiness ?she commands an immense range of exquisitely beautiful notes. Her contralto expresses the depth of her misery ; while her high soprano revels in ner triumph of joy. If to this be added that her dramatic talent never abandons her for a moment, and that ehe has the ingenuous simplicity,the graceful youth, and the winning beauty so desirable, if not absolute ly essential, in such a part, every one must be con vinced how much we nave gained by the acquisi tion of another Amina, the other charmer being far away. Madame Castellan awakened the most en thusiastic applause, and she had, above all, to con fratulate herself upon the open approbation testified y,an august dilettante, the first in taste as well as in power. On the other hand, the liriiannia. says, "Prodi gious putting has been resorted to in order to make n great prima donna of Madame Castellan, but the organized system of eulogy from the opera sanc tum will be of no force against public opinion and taste. Castellan is a very accomplished vocalist, nnd in a concert room heard with infinite gratifica tion, but she has not a particle of dramatic inspira tion. Iler acting is purely mechanical and conven tional, and the rigidity of muscle peculiar to her otherwise pretty face, is totally opposed to varying expression. Nothing could be more artificial than her '? Lucia." The music is also too high for her. lier voice is a nirsso top ra no, the lower notes of which are to be preferred, but her higher notes are hard, ulbeit pretty well in tune. 'Die claque ensured her a good reception, but it will never be able to main tain her in the position of a first rate prima donna." Hackett. since his London engagement, has been acting with great success in Ldinburgh and Glas uow, and was at Dublin at the latest dates; but had been sent for to appear before the Queen and the British Court, at Drury Lane, on the 21th of April, the occasion being a state visit. General Tom Thumb is the rage among the Pari sians at present. One of the journals says, "No such sensation has been created anion'' the fair, since the tirst appearance of Lemuel Gulliver at the Court of Brobdi gnag." Mr. Forrest concluded his engagement at the Prin cess's in the tragedy of King Lear He proceeded to Bristol, Ldinburgh and Dublin immediately. The intention of taking an English company to Paris under his management has fallen to the ground, in consequence of the directors of the Odeon not beina able to ensure Mr. Forrest the uninterrupted occupancy of the theatre for the time required, one month. Mr. Templeton is about to embark for America, where he intends giving a series of lectures on Scottish music. ? A new comic opera, by Auber, entitled />? Due ?rOlonne, had been brought out at the Princess's Theatre, and M as very favorably received. At the Italian opera house, on the 7th ult., the fa mous hanuuu* vitnnoutt made their appearance between the act - of the o|>era, and in jhe ballet, which was "Eoline." They are a party of thirty six Little girls from Vienna; and anything more de lightful than theix appearance, or more captivating than their dancing, cannot be imagined. They are of lovely creatures, from seven years old, we should think, to thirteen or fourteen, formed into the most yicturesque groups, and going through a thousand Pretty evolutions with the most exquisite grace, rendered still more exquisite by their inno cent hilarity and air of heart felt enjoyment. The audience wore transported, and one continued thun der of applause rolled from every part of the theatre during the whole time they were on the Mage At the conclusion bouquets weie showered upon the stage, which the hiilc damsels scrambled for with a childish eagerness that was very amusing. The "adults," for the time, were quite tin own into the back ground. The Queen, Princc Albert, and the Duchess of Kent were present.

Sup|ilemeilt. ?Jz?jrss. fr,?ri Xfc The BT.w. from Kurop??ttj( IlUerc.t Importune*. 1 he news from England and the rest of Europe brought by the " Hiberni.," i. extremely intere^ in a variety of aspects. It was looked for with much anxiety, because people expected to hear new developments ?f the sentiments of the British government, in relation to Oregon,Texas, and other matters. The moral war against the United States, grow rng out of the position of the Oregon question, is still fiercely waged by the British press; but nothing farther has been said on the subject in Parliament. I here are some indications, however, that a deeper fooling exists in the British government, with regard to the Oregon question, than has, as yet, been gene rally supposed. We have reference to the rumor that eight thousand troops are about to bo sent to Canada, which comes to us through the Irish papers. We should not be ut all surprised to see a vast body of troops sent to Canada, in order to operate on this country, in the manner attempted in the oase of the North Eastern Boundary. Another important indi cation on this subject, is the statement in the Lon don papers, that a war clause had been introduced into all marine policies of insurance at Lloyd's. This is more significant than any thing we have yet seen; for there can be no doubt that this measure has been adopted by the underwriters at Lloyd's on the best authority in London, as to the intentions of the British government on the subject of the Oregon question. Another very remarkable incident is the haste with which Sir Robert Peel is de parting from his original policy of strong oppo sition to O'Connell and Irish reform. He is now endeavoring to conciliate the Irish party by extending the grant to Maynooth, which has created a great sensation in England, and threatens, it is intimated in some quarters, to overthrow the present ministry, and revolutionize political parties in Great Britain.? We look on it in a different light. Sir Robert Peel is anxious to conciliate O'Connell and the repealers by some such concessions as that grant, even at the risk of inflaming the Protestants of England and other parts of the empire; evidently, however, with the view of uniting the whole country in opposition to the United States in the Oregon negotiations, rhis derives additional confirmation from the con. tinuance, with fresh violence, of the attaoks upon the institutions of the South by O'Connell in the repeal conventicles in Dublin. Altogether there seems to be a great deal of confusion in the state of parties in Great Britain and Ireland. TorieH?conservatives whigs?radicals?Protestants?Catholios, all appear to be shifting their various positions, and it would seem that the ferment is produced by the effort of the ministry to conciliate O'Connell and the Irish party in order tojbe able to present a strong and united front to the United States in the future nego tiations on the Oregon question. This is made the open and avowed reason of the grant to Maynroth in the debates of the House. John Bull at last is fright ened at Brother Jonathan. Good. Tins is the most plausible and probable view that can be taken of the present state of affairs in Great Britain,with reference to this country. On the con tinent a most remarkable condition of things at. tracts our attention. War has already broken out in Switzerland between the Protestants and Catholics; and a state of feeling exists between the sects in Germany, which threatens to pro duce very speedily the same state of hostility. The religious animosities which agitated Europ* two or three centuries ago, and produced the long and bloody wars which devastated the Continent, seem to have broken out afresh, and there is now every probability that the some angry feelings of sectarian hostility are generating all over Christendom, throughout France and Italy, and other parts of Europe, which have now buret forth in open war in Switzerland. Even in England, and throughout the British empire, a similar state of things exists, and is repressed only by the fear of a collision with the I nitrd States on the Oregon question. Who knows but these religious passions, waked up at last after the slumber of centuries, may create a general war in Europe, before many years have passed, which may lead to an cntirelynew, fresh, and revolutionary formation of political and civil socicty throughout the old world 1 If these religious passions should break out generally in open war, it is probable that a third party, the republicans throughout Europe, would be abletoraise their heads, and to organize theirmoral and physical forces, so as to originate a revolution that would sweep away for ever the two contending sect,, and all the despotic dynasties with which they havo become intertwined. There must be one day, sooner or later, a final and derisive conflict between Protes tantism and Catholicism in Europe, and the result wiUbe anew and better era in society, and civil and religious liberty in the ancient world. I he difficulties between Europe and the United States, only form an episode in the great movement of society, on those opposing principles which are now coming into collision everywhere throughout the old Continent.
