Esq., which, it is said, is admirably adapted for the display ol his inimitable representation of the peculiarities ol the Keniuckians in the far west. The piece is well arranged, and will, we are sure, become a la vorite iu America. Mr. Marble's benefit was to. take place on the 19th. and he was to leave by the steamer Cambria on the following day.

Themar, a native of Prussia, who ha< been distinguished at Brussels, Spa, and various places on the Continent as a pianist of the first order, has made her debut in Londcu with great success. It is said, thar the astonishing vigor, facility, and preci sion ofMddlle. Themar's execution, combined with the expression and finish of her performance, much of winch is of her own composition, gave greut satis faction to the distinguished party, and justify the ex pectation that she will prove a star of no smull mag nitude, amidst the variety of musical talent at pre sent collected in that metropolis. Signor Murras, a tonor singer who came out last year, and who then showed certain meritorious capabilities, has been highly successful in London, at a concert in the Hanover Square Rooms. He Wiis assisted by Madame Eugenie Garcie, Mdlle. Schloss, and u Signor Minoja. M. Sainton played a pair of solos on the violin ; and the concert was further marked by the piano forte performances of Mr. W. V.

Mr. Haussens, one of the directors of the Grand French Opera of Brussels, has been in London for the purpose of making final arrangements about the performances of the French Operas, to take place, on a very grand scale in the beginning of June, at Co vent Garden Theatre, under the patronage of his Majesty the King of the Belgians. Mr.Charles Matthews whobecame insolvent in 1842 in amount to ?26,000, of which ?10,000 have been disallowed by the commissioner, Mr. Law, in con sequence of the parties failing to attend and prove their claim. Mr. Matthews' estate, it is expected, will pay a small dividend?something like 6d. in the pound. Mr. Fitzwilliam, the well-known actor and comic singer, took his farewell benefit on the 5th ult., at Drury Laue theatre. Every seat was filled, and the several entrances were crowded at an early hour.? At the conclusion of the performances he read an address, the principal points of which were that he had enjoyed the favor of the public for upwards of 40 venr", and had by its continued patronage not only been enabled to maintain and educate his family, but to make provision for the future, if not in splendor, yet with the assurance of comfort and indepen dence A fatality seems to nttend Cooke's Equestrian Cir cus, which has just been brought before the public in connexion with the tragic catastrophe at Yarmouth. A few years since Mr. Cooke, senr., lost his valuable horses, theatrical properties, Arc., by fire, in this country, and subsequently experienced a disastrous loss in Ireland. In the early part of the present year the circus belonging to Mr. W. Cooke was torn down by a violent gust of wind, just before the pe formance at Hackney, by which Mrs. Ishisterand her nephew lost their lives, and many visitors narrowly escaped serious injury. Mr. Cooke, upon that occasion, ge nerously proffered payment to the family of deceased for every expense arising out of the accident. Mr. Cooke has closed the cirrus at Yarmouth, and remov ed the company to London. Vauxhall Gardens opened on the 12th ult. The ce lebrated Mr. Widdicombe, of Astley's, has been ap pointed successor to the late immortal Simpson, mas ter of the ceremonies to the royul property.

Dr. George Cook, died at St. Andrew's yesterday morning. Dr. Cook was for a long i*riod the acknowledged leader of the moderate party in the Established Church of Scotland, and for the last 17 years professor of moral philosophy and political economy in the United College of St.Salvador and St Leonard's, St Andrews. The Rev. Dr. had reach ed an advanced age, being, we believe, upwards of seventy ?Edinburgh Witness, May 14. The celebrated Danish physician and savan, Dr. J. D Brandis, died at Copenhagen on the t?th April, in the 83rd year of his age. Vincent Stuckey, the eminent banker, died sud denly in his library, at his seat in Langport, on the niaht of the 8th ult. He was in his 7ltn year. Dkath of Mr. Thomas Hood, an event, whieh had been anticipated by himself and his friends foi some time past, tookplace on the 3rd ult. Sir David Milne, G. C. B., Admiral of the White, died at Devonport, on the 8rd ult. Lord Corbery died at his seat, Cwtle Freke(in the County of Cork, on the fith ult. He wns in hisflOili t he l*'an ol VVell* died on the 2nd ult, in Ilia eity, {Ireland. At the weekly meeting of the Repeal Association m the 5th instant, Grey Porter, whose pamphlet on Federalism was to much vaunted by O'Connell last vear, wiien the writer was the High Sheriff of the Orange county of Fermanagh, sent in his resignation ?s a member of the association. He thus assigns ihe cause of his resignation, in a letter to Mr. Smith ?>"Brien " Yesterday 1 read the speeches at the Dundalk dinner,and an it seems tome that the asso ciation is now thoroughly pledged by its leaders to the establishment of a parliament in Dnblin, (no matter how well and how justly our international and our internal grievances are redressed by the imi>ei'ial Parliament,) and as 1 feel that 1 have no right any further to put forward my own views, I beg leave to retire from the association." Mr. O' Connell, with some compliments to the wavering federalist, moved the insertion of his letter on the minutes; and Mr. O'Brien said that Mr. Porter had joined them with precipitancy, and left them with precipitancy. The rent exceeded ?400. It is asserted with much confidence that Bantry, on the coast of Cork, is selected by government as the American and West Indian Packet station. The official return of the military force in Ireland shows that on the 1st May there were, including the Royal Horse and Foot Artillery, 21,000 men j to which may be added 9,000 police, and the recently embodied out-|>ensioner3 that can be called into ac tive sen ice, if required. The bill for the endowment of provincial colleges in Ireland has been issued by the House of Com mons' printer. France. Pai! is, May 13?The accounts state that the draught of the convention respecting the right of search, agreed upon by the commissioners (the Duke de Broglie and Dr. Lushington,) which h id been transmitted for approval from London to Paris, had been returned, with an objection to one of its provisions. The pre cise terms of the proposed convention were not of course known, but it was understood thattheycontemplated treaties with the African native chiefs to prevent the sale and embarkation of slaves: and in the event of failure or deception on the part of : such chiefs, or any of them, that their territory b? blockaded, and possession taken of their factories.? " In the present rage in France for sei'ing and "pro tecting" foreign ports, islands, and territory, and for the extension of the steam and other naval force of the country, few schemes could better than this," ob serves a writer on the spot, " be hit upon." The exciting topic of the Jesuits has occupied the attention of the Chamber of Deputies. It originated with M. Thiers, who described the vicissitudes the order of Jesuits had experienced since its founda tion ; the motives of its condemnation in France in the eighteenth century,and those which had induced the Pope to pronounce the dissolution of a communi ty that Frederick the Great, alone, in all Europe,did not consider dangerous. The Committee of the Chamber of Peers on the conversion of the Five per cents, have decided against the proposed conversion during the present session. The reported visit of several crowned heads to the King of the French, turns out to be unfounded. Nothing of the kind appears to have been contem plated. The hopes of the war faction in France that a war would arise between America and Great Bri tain, have been sadly clouded by the last arrivals from the United States. Even the Prtue is con strained to admit that such an event is in the highest degree improbable. The Prcsse confirms the statement of private let ters that the health of M. Guizot was perfectly re established; indeed, that he found himself stronger than before his late attack. The Paris papers are chiefly occupied with the debate in the Chamber of Deputies on the Northern Railroad Bill, in the course of which the question was again raised as to whether railroads should be undertaken by the State, by companies, or by both. The Chamber reduced on Monday the sum required to fcbe lodged as security by the parties making tenders for a line, from $13,000,000 francs to 13.000,000. Spain. Our accounts from Madrid are of the 8th instant. The debate on the budget of receipts was proceeding, but had created little interest; the first article, which fixes the entire budget of. receipts at 1,226,000,000 reals, having been adopted, the pro posal to reduce the contribution to 300,000,000 reals imposed on landed property to 200,000,000 was op|>osed, and was rejected by a majority of 60 to 46. Portugal. Our Lisbon advices to the 6th instant, inform us that the Portuguese Minister of the Interior. Senhor Costa da Cabral, has been obliged by ill-health to re linquish his official duties. His brother,Senor Jose, was appointed. The Cardinal Patriarch died on the 5th instant. The receipts of the custom-house of the kingdom in the month of April had fallen oil' 68 contos compared with the corresponding period of 1814. The government had effected another loan of 1,600 contos. The Commercial Union Company had obtained from the Junta of Public Credit the agency for the transmission and payment of. the funds in London, for the charges of the Foreign Debt, and had remitted ?10.000 by last packet, to meet the claims of the month of June. The bank had formerly that agency, and the withdrawal of it was the cause of some annoyance to the govern ment. The amount ol wines exported from Lisbon in 18*4 was 19,135 pipes, and the estimated value 229,OOQf. sterling. The greatest tranquillity reigns throughout Tus cany ; unfortunately it is not the same in the Pupal States; there the agitators continue to conspire, and it will require all tne vigilance and energy of the government to prevent another insurrection. The disaffected?and they are in great numbers?are fur ?from being intimidated by the recent military con demnations ; they hold frequent secret meetings, and during the night post on the church doors the most seditious proclamations. The police is most active, and in many parts of the Pope's dominions a military commission . holds permanent sittings. Within the last fortnight the following condemna tions have been pronounced, und the unfortunate beings executed : two at Ravenna, one ut Faenza, two at Urbino. and two at Macerata. Our correspondent at Turin, under date of the 8th instant, furnishes, amongst otner items, the follow ing : The U. S. frigate Cumberland, Commodore J. Smith, arrived at Genoa the 30th April. The publication of the Italian translation of Ban croft's history of the UnitedJStates has'heen formal ly refused, notwithstanding the efforts of the Ameri can Minister,by both the civil and ecclesiastical cen sure of Turin. The Hon. Robert VVtcklitfe,junior, the American Minister, lias gone to spend a week with the Duke of Montmorency, at his chateau, in the neighbor hood of Turin. Hwltxerland. By the 2d instant, Lucerne had sufferad all the prisoners made by its troops to depart, under the stipulations for ransom. A letter from Lucerne gives an account of a curious sentence, at Nidwald, upon a Lieutenant Nermann, who hnd joined the Free Corps in the attack upon Lucerne. He is condemned to stand in public for four hours, with a rod in his hand, then to be flogged with it, and af terwards imprisoned for six months, during which he is to receive " religious instruction." The accounts from Switzerland to the 7th instant state that all the prisoners who are natives of Lu cerne had been released, and the only captives re maining, 584 in number, belonged to the canton. The Government of Berne had sent a delegate to Lucerne, to make a last attempt to induce that can ton to abandon its int>-nti<>n to recall the Jesuits. The lk-mene Envoy was said to be the bearer of a pressing recommendation to that effect from seve ral influential members of the corv* diplomatique. Letters from Zurich of the 7th instant, state that the Supreme Tribunal of Lucerne had confirmed the sentence on Dr. Steiger, and that it now remains | with the Grand Council alone to pardon him. The governments of Zurich and Berne had each sent one of their members to intercede on his behalf. Turkey. The Ottoman Government being determined to carry out its plans for the moral ana physical ameli oration of the country, has organized ten itinerant commissions, destined to set out and visit in detail various portions of Asiatic and European Tur key, for the purpose of reporting upon the improve ments that can, without too heavy a charge on the national resources be introduced to further public in struction, advance agriculture, commerce, trade, the means of communication, the establishment of hospitals and places of refuge for the poor, See. Monaco. The late movements of Abd-el-Kader have caused so much concern that,according to the Cotutituiionel, the French government have despatched General I lelarue, armed with plenipotentiary powers, to the Emperor of Morocco, with a view of obliging the latter to fulfil that article of the treaty of Tangier, by which his Majesty bound himself to undertake the expulsion of Abd-el Kader from his dominions. Van Dlemiui'e Land. The Hobart-town and Launceston papers to the 10th of February,state that the harvest had commen ced, but the crop was expected to be limited. The drought and winds had injured the wheat and barley. Wheat was as before, Hs. to 8a. 6d. per bushel. The accounts of the generaj condition of the colony are not favorable, and the increase of crime is said to be a great drawback to the prosperity of the inhabi tants. India and Clilna. The overland mail of the 1st of April arrived in London on the 6th instant. In the Punjaub there is sad confusion, and two or three dynastiea. The boy king, Dhuleep-Smgh, rules at Lahore. In the mountain fortress of Janroo, i ^lioohub Sin<?h maintains his supremacy, and the t,.ii ,ii AMnt" Khan, of Cahnl, i* preparing to ( i/,o IVoJiuvvui. Ghooluub Siuuli had formed u ?i t of alliance with the Afighan leaders, and had I ?ntrapped a number of soldiers belonging to the lghtful sovereign, and carried away the treasure of A'hich they were the guardians. Ihe British gov ernment was preparing to assist the troops of the young King Dhuleep. The expedition which Sir Charles Napier led into the territories of the Jakranees, Doomkies, and Boogties, lying in the mountainous tracts to the westward of Poolaiee, has been successful. He had reduced and brought them to terms. Their country is to be given over to the honest tribe of the Mur rees, who are disposed to adhere strictly to the British alliance. Some of the tribes are to be re moved to the districts bordering on the Indus, where ihev will have lands granted to them for cultivation. The allairs of Sawnut Warree have assumed a complex aspect, in consequence of the Portuguese settlement of Uoa becoming mixed up with the re bellion of the disatlected in those districts. TJie re volted chiefs fled over the Goa frontiers. Several applications were made to the Goa Governor either to surrender them, or at least to arrest them ; but he, either from inability or from reliance upon the trea ties which protect Euro|>ean states in their neutrality declined interfering. A reference has been made to Kurope on the subject of the rights of a neutral flag to protect rebels, whom it does not restrain from continuing their hostility by active measures; and it is expected that the Courts of Lisbon and London will soon send out their ultimatum on the subject. The court martial lor the trial of Lieutenant Colo nel Wallace, of the Madras army, for disobedience of orders, was assembling at the end of Maroh at Belgauin. In the interior of India tranquility prevails. The Governor-General, Sir Henry Hardmge, remains at Calcutta, eugrisred in forwarding measures for the improvement of?the country. The report of flie commerce of Bombay for the year 1843-4, exhibits a very considerable increase in the trade of that year over those which have pre ceded it, namely: re. 23,387,916 in imports, ana rs. 22,309,412 in exports; or, in the aggregate, upwards of four and a half crores of rupees. The customs had also augmented to the amount of rs. 527,842. The total imt*ort of cotton into Bombay, durum the year 1843-4, amounted to 147,872,589 lbs., and the total export to 171,368,480 lbs. The discrepancy be tween the imports and exports is attributed, by the Bombay Timet, to fraudulent importations, which, it alleges, are carried on to a considerable extent. The news from China extends to the 10th ot February, but business was in a state of stagnation in conseqaence of the Chinese holidays. China opened to Christianity.?We have re ceived letters from Macao, containing intelligence which, it it be confirmed, will produce A sensation in Europe, and do great honor to the French mission in China. It is nothing less than the abolition of the rigorous edict which forbid the Chinese to embrace and practise Christianity. We know that these edicts, after having been revoked under the reign of the Emporer Kan-Hi, were again brought into force about a century ago, on the advice of the Tribunals of Rites; and, until these latter times at least, have been put into execution by the Chinese magistrates with the utmost rigor. Thus Christianity has found a double obstacle to its introduction into the middle of the empire; for on one hand were the laws which interdicted foreigners Irom penetrating into the inte rior of the empire, and on the other liand the Chi nese, who, if left to themselves, would be inclined to embrace the religion of the Gospel, are restrained by the pains and penalties denounced by the is these edicts which it is now in contemplation to abolish. To obtain this abolition the French mission, as may be believed, could not make any direct propo sition to the Chinese commissioners. It was only by influential means that it ought or could act. Thus the first overtures came from the Chineaej^negociators themselves, from Ki Ying, the representative of the Emperor, and from the treasurer, Hu Ad. KiYing has a liberal and philosophical mind. Far from hav ing any prejudice or anti)>athy against Christianity, he repeats, both in personal conference and in Ins written correspondence, that a religion which for bids evil and commands good cannot be a false one. He adds, that as this religion is professed by the great Emneror of the French, and by the noble na tion of wnich he is sovereign, the abolition of the laws which forbid its exercise in China would be the best means of confirming a friendly alliance be tween the two countries. In a word, ne offered his mediation with the Emperor and the Tribunal of Bites to obtain a revocation of the anti-Christian edicts. To us alone will belong the honor of having represented Christianity and civilisation in China, by causing edicts of intolerance and persecution to be abolishedl Though others may have converted China'to commerce; we shall have opened her to Christianity and tolerance!?Journal den Debuts. Markets. Loudon Money Market, May 16, P. M.?Owing to the persevering efforts of those who speculated lor a fall ot the Funds, aided by several accidental circumstances of small consideration, Consols have continued to be con siderably depressed and somewhat fluctuating. On the 9th inst. when the news from the United States by the Great Western reached London, it was so far considered to be of a pacific character as to raise the price of Con sols 1 per cent. This favorable impression has been since confirmed by the reception of the news to the 1st inst., by the Caledonia, which has given a greater stability to the market than it before possessed, and Consols left off 99} to } for money, 99} sellers. There has not been much fluctuation in the quotations of the Funds. Consols for money left off this afternoon 99 to $: and for the account, 99}. These quotations are scarcely so good as yesterday.

Li\ krpool Cotton Market, May 9?The market open ed quietly, but the demand on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday was very extensive, the sales reaching up wards of 42,001) bales, more than oue-half on speculation; but at the buyers were so freely met by importers, no advance took place in priccs of any description.

There hat been a good many arrivals from the Baltic,the first bf the season, and which ordinarily gives some im pulse to the trade; but in the present prospect of a fine summer, and consequent abundant harvest, they have commanded little attention. Some of the fresh Baltic was ottering at 7*. 3d. per 70 lbs. duty paid, and 7s. was refused for tome quantity. At our last market day there was a fair demand for oats at former rates, and several cargoes were sold, freo on board, in Ireland. There was no change in oatmeal; a moderate quantity was taken by the country dealers. Thore was a moro general en quiry for Irish flotir; a fair quantity was sold at full rates. Sugar?Last week the market was rather quiet for all descriptions of sugar, but it did not produce any material efl'eot upon prices. The demand hat si wo increaseJ, and this week the sales are 700 hhdt. British Plantation, and upwards of 2000 hags Bengul, at very steady priccs. We notice a decided disposition on the part of buyers to pur chase freely of the better qualities. In foreign sugar there is little now ottering in this market; the demand haa been to a moderate extent, at very full rates.

State of Trade in the MawlFACTUamo District*. ?The accounts received from the manufacturing dis tricts of Cloth and Cotton are,satisfactory, and, in some instances, highly encouraging. At Leeds and Hud dersfield. in Yorkshire, business it steady, and priccs firm. The Flannel Market at Rochdale has improved, but prices remain as formerly. Cottons, in Manchester, are in good repute, and at i ull prices. The Hemp and Flax trade at Dundee continuet stationary. Yarns and Linent are not so much sought after, and pricei are, therefore, on the decline. The Hotiery trade at Notting ham appears pretty good. Bombay, April 1,?We are enabled to report favorably of the state of our markets, as political disquietude, the depressing cause, which has exercised to great an amount of influence on business transactions through out the season, still continues with almost unabated vi gour. The demand lor the Persian Gulf is now in a great measure supplied, so that our chief support is for the present to be looked for amongst local consumers. There was a favorable re-action in the market towards the end of the month, but this was interrupted by the interven tion of the Hooly holidays, which occa'sioned a total suspension of business, from which the market has not yet had time to recovcr ; it is possible that in the course of the month business will look up. The reports re ceived here of the advance of prices for manufactures in the Englifh market cannot fail to exert a favorable in fluence on our trade, and ought to impart to the market a degree of animation unexperienced during the season. Calcutta, March 19.?Owing to the small amounts of late remitted here from England, and the continued paucity of operations in our import market, there has been comparatively but little demand for bills, and rates having in conseqence advanced more than a half penny above the figure at which advances can be obtained from the company, shippers have been induced to operate more extensively through that channel, and the amount ad vanced by them since the late reduction is no lest than 1,706,079 company't rupeet, or ?156,398 8s. 2d. Our im port market, although atill very far from being in a satis factory state, exhibits a decided although gradual im provement ; and should the unremunerating rates which have been ruling here for tome time past check (as they might naturally be expected to do, and have already done to a certain extent) shipments lrom England, we think we may safely look forward to a continuance of the same, up to the time when the opening of the up country rivers has the customary effect on the market.

Santa Fe Trade.?We counted this morning, turned out on the side walk, on Main street, in front of a large wholesale dry goods store, rising of thirty large dry goods boxes, all labeled to different firms in Santa Fe. We suppose thiu to be but one of the many sales which our merchants have made, and will make this spring for that trade ; and is only the sale of one house. Other houses, we suppose, can show as much. We doubt not, that if the traders who have arrived and those who may yet come in, pause to examine priccs here, and count the costs and expenses of going cast; the costs, risks and delays of shipments from the east to this point; and the great increase of delay in their re turn to New Mcxico and the transportation of their stocks to that market, they will all find it to their advantage to buy here rather than go further. We learn that this trade, to our city, has been gradually increasing for sev eral years post. Formerly, but few of the goods for Now Mexico were purchased here. The traders arriving in the spring continued on to the east, made their invest ments there, and purchased but little here. In this way, they have, at times, been subjected to considerable in convenience, and sometimes to losses.

Koch has brought to light the fossil remains of a monster in the animal creation that puts in the shade the relobratod " [(juanodon" of England, of col lossal size, and the still more gigantic Missourium. This last discovery may tie set down to the State of Alabama, and to a county adjoining Mobile, namely, Washington, being found imbedded in a yellow lime-rock formation, near the old Washington Court Mouse. The description of this monster is in substance as follows:?I have suc ceeded in bringing to light tho very nearly complete skeleton of n most colossal and terrible reptile, that may he justly termed the king of the kings of reptiles. Its length is one hundred and four feet?the solid portions of the vortebra are from 14 to 18 inches in length, and from 8 to 1 i inches in diameter, each averaging 76 pounds in weight. Its greatly elongated jaws are armed with not less than forty incisor or cutting teeth, four canine teeth or fangs, and eight molars or grinders. These teeth all fit into each other when the jaws are closed, and it is clear that the animal was of the carniverous na ture. The eyes were evidently l.irge, and were promi nently situated on the forehead, giving tho animal the power of keeping a constant ami vigorous watch for its prey. The body had members attached resembling pad dles or fins, which in proportion to the size of the animal wero small, and were doubtless intended to propel the body of this enormous creature through the waters of those largo rivers nnd fen* which it inhabited or fre quented. Each of these paddles or tins is composed of 31 nones, which form in union, seven freely articulating joints.

They were found at about the depth of three feet boneath the surface, buried in sand, a few feet from the wayside; two of them near cash other, and one distant from t.iese onl> iihout twelve feet?all with their fares downward, and about them a considerable quantity of pitch pine bark much decayed, in which tliey were probably encofflned for burial. There is no doubt but that they are the re mains of Indians. It is said that tribes once inhabited the border of the river (Elizabeth) where the skeletons were found.

The intelligence brought from England by the GreatWestern?a fulland accurate synopsis of which we issued in an extra yesterday, giving in our paper this morning a still more copious and comprehen iive abstract?is very interesting in a variety of aspects. The commercial, literary, theatrical and s^enejal news, will be found under their respective heads. To the opinions of the English press on !he present relations of the two countries, to which we huve given considerable space, we need hardly direct the particular attention of our readers. The feeling of the British public with regard to the United States and the probabilities of a collision between the two countries, present at this mo ment a subject of study at once interesting and amusing. A sort of panic appears to have been produced by the intelligence conveyed from this country to England by the Great Western. Stocks were reeling about?cotton was rising and falling? every thing was in confusion?and the journalists seem to have been quite thunderstruck on finding that the abominable Yankees to*k the blustering de clarations of Sir Robert, and the violent declama tion of the newspaper editors, in a manner so con foundedly cool. Some of them affect to praise us for our moderation and calmness?some abuse us like pickpockets, and call us " swindlers " and ?' robbers," because we didn't go into convulsions of terror or rage?but all are evidently astonished that we are so calm and cool?so provokingly cool. These journalists forget, or do not know,the relative condition of the two countries. We can afford to hear all these rumors of war with smiling compo sure. This country is but in the spring of its man hood and vigor. The present is full of encourage ment?the future) is full of hope. And what a fu ture ! We can look forward to century after centu ry of national life, and more than imperial power. Not so witb England. She has passed the climac teric of her existence, and is now in that perilous epoch, described with such graphic power by one of her own poets :? First seedling hid in grass : Then twig ; then sapling ; and at century roll'd, Slow after century, a giant bulk Of girth enormous, with moss covered trunk, And roots upheaved above the coil, and aides Kmbossed with prominent wena globose ; till At the laat, the rottenneas time inflicta On other mighty things, found alao thee ! War is a word now tull ot terrible monition to Eng land. Not a tap of the drum has been heard, and yet we see the old lady has gone off in hysterics al ready. With what evident delight the London Times assures its readers, that the intelligence from the United States is "decidedlv pacific!" How it has moderated its tone with respcct to the claims of Great Britain to Oregon! Not long since it talked loudly and wildly about British claims of sovereignty ?now it mumbles something about "joint occupa tion," and seems to hint at a settlement of the controversy by John Bull and Brother Jona than tossing up coppers for the whole territory, like two ragged loafers by the side of our own beautiful Fountain in the Park, on a fine June morning.? Peace?the world's peace?peace with America above all?is now an essential condition of the national pros perity of Great Britain. Hence the fidgetty uneasi ness excited by any threatened interruption of the pacific relations of the two countries. John Bull appears to be in pretty much the same position as a nervous passenger in one of those ponderous dili gences that traverse the steep passes of the Alle ghany mountains. On one side an awful precipice ?on the other hanging piles of gloomy rocks that seem about to crusr. the luckless traveller?before him the rough, broken, downward road, on which the cumbrous vehicle thunders along at the rate of ten miles an hour?the horses helter-skelter?the driver ready to tumble from his seat?the reins every way?crash?dash?merciful Heaven!?should a lincfi-pin give way! This view of the present state of feeling in Eng land, as shadowed forth in the leuding journals, na turally leads us to the consideration of a very re markable feature in this intelligence from the other side of the Atlantic?the feature of most im mediate and practical interest. And that is the evi dence which is afforded, confirmatory of the opinion expressed by us on more than one occasion, that all the fuss and blustering about Oregon in the British Parliament, was a concerted and cunning move ment for the purpose of diverting the attention of the government and people of this country from the an nexation of Texas. There is now no room left for doubt on this subject. The recent intelligence from Mexico, revealing the successful progress, almost to a termination, of the intrigues of the British agent' Mr. Elliott, has opened the eyes of every body, but the " organ" at Washington. The government of Great Britain has never for a moment lo?t sight of the Texas question. And why this vigilance?why this strong and unceasing effort to prevent annexation 1 The answer is easy. The annexation of Texas would be but the first step in the mighty movement for the subjugation of this whole continent to repub lican government. Texas annexed, Oregon, Cali fornia, Canada, follow?all in due process of time. England desires to establish a barrier to this move ment. She seeks to make Texas that barrier. Hence her laborious, secret, unceasing, anxious efforts to defeat annexation. Hencc the crafty at tempt, by seizing upon a hasty expression in Mr. Polk's inaugural address, to change the issne be tween the two countries, the annexation of Texas being a subject on which the minister could not say any thing in Parliament without violating the prin ciples of the recognized law of nations, and with which he had no right or pretext in that place to meddle. Thus, again, the humiliating conviction is impres sed with added force upon us that our government has been duped, sadly duped in this whole business of Texas annexation?duped by the British govern ment?duped by its own agents?duped all around. There was a time when the golden opportunity of annexing Texas presented itself with such pressing invitation that nothing but the maddest and blindest partisanship could have refused to improve it. That time was when the Tyler tmity was presented to the Senate of the United StateB. Then the tneasutt!?a measure of the utmost interest to the honor and welfare of free government and the advancement of human rights and human iberty all over the world?could have been effected at once and for ever, without any opposition from England and France, without any difficulty what ever. But the folly, violence, and factious spirit of t portion of the democracy?the folly of Benton? rhe folly of Van Burcn?the folly of CUy?the foil) of all the old vtagers jealou-* of Mr. Tyler?led to (he rejection of that treaty. The golden opportunity was lost. That was the first great error. If the .Irmness, honesty, and patriotic devotion to tin spread and growth of Republicanism on this Conti lent, of the American population in Texas, fail in he struggle that is now appronching between them m the one hand, and foreign and domestic intrigm on the other, that error may be irretrievable A few weeke will tell. . SriAXsitrr BfttCaMMft. for Liverpool, left Boston yesterday. She carried out about eeventy pasf*n gars, including llobert Owen and N. P. Willi*. Election or School Commissioners, and thi Iible.?The election for a School Commissioner in ?ach ward, and aloo tor a Trustee and Inspector, takes place this day. Considerable excitement pre vuils amongst the fanatical portion of the commu nity on the subject; and every effort has been mado within the last few days, to induce the voters to re cord their votes, so as to enable the bigots and the fanatics at every side, to carry out their worst pre judices. The religious element, that has given a distinctive trait to the now defunct " native" party, is narrowed down to a simple issue, in this contest, as to whether or not the Bible shall be introduced in the public schools. It, therefore, is a question be tween the fanatical and the ultras of party, and the calm, thinking, liberal and high-minded, who look upon those bitter prejudices, that have latterly been infused into the debates before the Board of Educa tion, as derogatory to the character of true religion, and to the common principles of Christianity. The excitement upon the subjeet, has risen already to the utmost pitch, and the result is looked to with the deepest interest. We have, invariably, condemned every effort on the part of the fanatical and the pre judiced of every class of the religicus sects, to infuse their bitter animosities into these elections, where the simple question of education of the poorer classes is made the subject tor the people to decide upon. Re ligious toleration is the proud boast of our Constitu tion, and the election of the Commissioners, Trus tees, and Inspectors, this day, will decide a question which has so long distracted the community?a ques tion which has been the cause of bloodshed in many parts of Europe,and has latterly convulsed the entire country. The Courts will be adjourned in accordance with the provisions of the law, so that the entire commu nity will have time to calmly and deliberately de cide upon this question, the result of which is look ed to with the deepest interest. We shall carefully watch the result of 'he election in the different wards thiB day. Arrival of an Ambassador.?Among the pas sengers in the Great Western, are Marquis de la Talarue and Secretary. The Marquis is a fine looking old gentleman, and has taken rooms at the Astor. This gentleman is on a visit to this continent in an oflicial capacity, either as minister to this coun try, Mexico, or Texas, or to the three at the same time. It is supposed that he comes from France to watch the movements in Texas, Mexico, and the United States, relative to annexation. What the result of his mission will be none can now tell. It is time, however, for France to see what she is doing, in regard to Texas and this country. It is rather a dangerous step for her to take, to act in conjunction with England in any movement against the United States. The British government would gain a powerful point by turning the friend ship that has for so long a time existed between America and France into hatred. She is exerting herself to do that Rev. Dr. Tyng's Sermon.?St. George's church wus thronged yesterday forenoon, where the Rev. I)r. Tyng presided?his first discourse ?ince his acceptance of the call of thut con gregation. His text was taken from the second chapter of the second Book of Kings, 15th verse:? "And when the sons of the prophets, which were to view at Jericho, saw him, they said, the spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha; and they came to meet him, and bowed diemselves to the ground before | him." The first portion of his remarks were in ex planation of the ofiice of the christian ministry, in which holy calling he had been engaged'a quarter of & century, he said. Next followed some strictures on the troubles and dissensions in the church,which arose out of the encroachment of an organized pow m who sought to oppress the dissentient portion, and teach unscriptural doctrine. Against this power he wus resolved, by the help of God, to defend his liber ty of action, and conduct his system of instruction ! without control. Next followed a definition of the differences existing between the two sections. The church, he held to be composed of the whole com pany of the elect, united in communion, fellowship and faith. As to matters of worship, he claimed the right to preach extemporaneous, or written sermons, at pleasure ; to cherish Sunday schools, hold prayer meetings, and judge freely as to what should be use ful. The conclusion consisted of an eulogy on his late flock?a description of their ardent love for liim ?their mutual grief at parting?the sacrifice he had mude from a sense of duty, and the candid ad mission that his new congregation could not provide more handsomely for him and his than did thosa from whom he was now severed. The closest atten tion was paid during the whole sermon. Puseyism.?The ilev. Dr. Seabury yesterday preached a sermon at his church, corner of Thomp son and Prince streets, on the subject of the proprie ty of praying for the souls of the dead. The congre gation was not very numerous, and we noticed a large proportion of theological students among it. This ser mon was one in answer to one delivered by Dr. Wain wright last week, in which he disclaimed any lean ing towards this doctrine. We have notes of it, but in conscqueuce of the crowded state of our columns, cannot give them 'till to-morrow. sitekintenuent ok Police?mr. Kiersted, for merly a democrat,ind kept in otlice by the " natives" last year, has been added to the list of applicants for the office of Superintendent of Police. Two days ago the Mayor resolved to nominate him. He will, probably, be as obnoxious to the democracy of the city as Justice Taylor was. The democrats are call ing out for Justice Matsell, who has had experience in the police department, and is practically acquaint ed with the duties of the offlcr. We will see, how ever, what will be done to-night. Contemptible Trick.?One of the penny papers is in the habit of issuing " extras" on the arrival of the steam ship, containing merely a few paragraphs, generally inaccurate, and thrown together at ran dom. The poor concern to which ffe allude, got out one of these miserable catch-pennies yesterday, a few minutes before our " extra" was published. The catchpenny gave a few erroneous and incohe rent statements, purporting to be extracts from Eng lish pipers. We gave three and a half columns of carefully selected matter with reports of all the mar kets. The public, however, have learned to discri minate, and refuse to buy the abortions of the penny paper. So now the newwboys repudiate them, and there is thus, happily, little danger of any one being misled by these fabulous "extras." extraordinary dlspatch ijc THE new york Post Office.?The letters by the steamer Great Western were yesterday assorted and ready for de livery in twenty-one minutes after the bags were re ceived at the Post office. This was in consequence of an order issued the night before by the Postmas ter, directing all the clerks to be at their pots on Sunday, in expectation of the arrival of the Western. Speed to bokto* ?Tiie passengers by the steam er Cleopatra, v<a Norwich, arrived at Hot-ton on Fri day morning, at 5 o'clock 45 minutes, making 12 iiours and 45 minutes from New York to Boston.
