Algeria?The Planet Astroa?Scientific Intelli gence?Music and the Drama, Sfc? Another eventful month has passed, and a new year haa begun to roll in the interminable ude ol time. Never waa an epoch marked by more me morable eventa?eveuta affecting not alone the well being of the present race of men, but of unborn mil lions?aflecting, not the people of this or that patch of land, or limited by theae or those shores, but pregnant with vast and durable benefits to the myri ads of denizens of thia terraqueous globe. The legislatures of the two great nations of ths world have reassembled. The delegates of the Bri tish people have been oonvoked in St. Stephen's, and the representatives of Francs have again come together in the Palais Bourbon. The gilded images ol sovereign power have uttered Irom their respec tive thrones the speeches put into their mouths by their responsible servants?speeches characterised i by the customary hollownesa of unmeaning gene rality. What a curious contrast with the elaborate details and weighty importance of the periodical manifesto of the great impersonation of the West ern Republic! As must have been expected, the unqualified claim advanced by the American President to the whole territory of Oregon, and the apparent renun ciation ot either diplomacy or arbitration upon it. has excited a lively sensation: but the part ol the which, on this side ot thf.# Cuinnfl at least, has called torth the strongest animadver sion, is the renunciation of all allegiance to inter national law?a sense which many impose on the , message. In short, it may be trely said, that no State paper, for a long period of time, has excited so universal and animated notice as Mr. Polks message. The Guizot ministry has commenced the session with every auspice of continued securi ty and success; and there is everv present appear ance of its stability. The extreme left, or democra tic party, is becoming more and more feeble, as eacn successive year rolls over, and the Canists, or , old Royalists, still more so. The strength of the Chambers is now concentrated in the dynastic par- | ty or that which, whatever internal differences may | divide it, will support the throne of the Barracades, ; and maintain the principle that the prosperity of France and the well being of Europe are identified with the stability of the dynasty of Orleans, and the maintenance of the charter. This dynastic party is divided into two sections, led respectively by Guizot and Thiers, the latter constituting what is called the dynastic opposition. The professed difference of these parties, is that the Thiers oppo i sition desires to assimulate the practice ot the gov ernment to that of England, while the present ad ministration party, led by Guizot, contends that the French people are not yet capable of being trusted with those popular rights, without imminent hazard for public order. On the American question, these sections differ; the Guizot party leading towards the claims of England, while the Thiers party pro fesses sympathy with Mr. Polk. Guizot insists on the maintenance of a certain balance of power in the West, by checking the encroaching policy ol the republic ; Thiers, on the contrary, disclaims any other equilibrium except that of the European States. The one professes some fears from American ag grandisement?the other repels, contemptuously, I any such apprehensions. However, the English l party in the Chambers, pledged by inclination and opinion to support the entente cordials, and sustained by the overwhelming personal influence of Louis Philippe himself, holds the reins of power, and is likely to continue to hold them. It is easy, there fore, to see the probable effect of any intervention or arbitration by France, unon the disputed questions between England and the United States. In England, as you will easily collect from the public journals, there is absolutely no division ol party or opinion on the Oregon question. All sec tions ol the body politic are ol one mind, or it, indeed, there be any difference, it is that the feeling of the radical and popular section is more unmea sured and intemperate in iu spirit against the Union, even, than the tories themselves. Sir Robert Peel has, with less than the usual official reserve, express I ed regret that the British Minister at Washington should have rejected the last proposals of the Ame i rican Cabinet, for the settlement of Oregon, without first transmitting them to Downing street lor the consideration of the home authorities. The whig and radical journals, on the other hand, support Mr. Pakenham, and declare that such a course could have no other object but to temporise and procrasti nate the settlement of the quesiion. It is a strange sign of the public feeling, in regard to this difference between the British and American governments, that although no one can show a way in which the difference is likely to be settled?although it is ad mitted that diplomacy has exhausted all its expedi ents upon it, and has run again and again the entire cycle ol iu devices?although it is known that arbi tr&tion baa been again and again offered and reject ed ; yet no one can be found who has any r racti cal and lively laith in the imminence of war! No one will believe that either of these great countries will really enuil on themselves, and the world, the calamities ol such a struggle for such a cause. It is very well to talk of national honor, and all that sort ol thing; but nations, now-a-days, take pretty nearly Fnlstalf's views of honor; and if they admit it as an ostensible cause of war, will assuredly take care that some cause of a more substantial and material nature must lurk Deniud it. But the American question, and all others which aflect international relations, are lost to the public eye by the comparatively colossal dimensions ef the vast principle which has been brought upon the theatre of public discussion by the head of the Eng lish cabinet, urged forward by the stern liat of the British people. To say that Sir Robert Peel has announced his determination to fulfil the behests of the Corn Law League, would be offering but a small and inadequate measure of justice to that singular man. By a series of small and, apparently, incon sequential measures, he has been for years under mining the whole fabric of commercial policy in England; and now he has put the match to the train, and the explosion has ensued, sending, not the corn laws only, but the entire structure of protective ' laws, in fragments into the air! Never was such a spectacle presented by legislative assembly as that | which was witnessed'm the House of Commons on the first night of the session. The address had scarcely been seconded, when the premier started on his feet from the restless bench where he had been waiting, in a state of nervous and impatient excitement, and, with the smallest conceivable amount of preliminary matter, unfolded to his asto nished auditory the details of the projected com mercial revolution which he is prepared to carry out. The extent and detaila of hia project, nay, even ita general nature and tendency, had been sedulously kept secret, not only from the most favored supportcra of the cabinet in the press,

but even from the members themselves of the government, savs and except the individual i composing the cabinet, and even to them the haughty leader only deigned to impart bia full, designs at the eleventh hour. Imagine Sir Robert speaking from the ministerial benchea, surround ed by his colleagues and the numerous members of the conservative party, and facing the whigs, the radicals, the league ana the Irish members?his opponents. Imagine him unlolding, in rounded pe riods, the niter aestruction of all protective legisla tion ; conceive him denouncing the corn monopoly as an obsolete error, which he retracted ana re pented ; and, as sentence rolled out after sentence, imagine (he acclamations, the " Hear, hear!" of his opponents, the whigs?the enthusiastic cheers of his opponents, the league, led by Cobden and Bright?and the exultations of his opponents, the radicals and the Irish tail; and conceive, at the same tune, Sir Robert's colleagues and supporters preserving, in the midst of this wild enthusiasm, the moat profound and ominous silence?wonder, confusion, consternation, and dismay, struggling for expression in their countenances! Never waa auch a spectacle. A looker-oa, unacquainted with the machinery of political partiee, would have said tnat Sir Robert had mistaken his place, and sat | down at the wrong side of the House, assuming a position in the midst ol his opponents, and oppo site to his friends. The importance of the change in the commer cial policy of the greateat commercial people in the world, which ia ihua sheet to be consummated, would bemoet inadequately estimated, were ita ef fects and its conaequenees limited to the British empire. The announcement that this great manu facturing and trading people have discovered, by long, hard, and dearly-bought experience, that all douea laid on lor the protection of native industry, i ape fallacious; that, instead of protecting, they im-1 pair; that unlimited importation* do not necessari- I ly connect iheipaelves with low prices, or with low : waeei; that healthy native industry flourishes best without legislative care or protection ; that it is setf foetered and sell-invigorated ; that it grows in its i own native and natural soil and atmosphere, but cannot be forced by any artificial expedients ol hot-bed legislation these are truthsthese are principles certainly not new, economists having pro mulged them for halt a century back. But they have hitherto existed only as barren theories, based on reasoning which was abstract, however plausi ble: as speculations of clever and acute men, and profound thinkers; but still, as speculations only. They at* now, for the firat time, offered to the world as the results of enlarged experience ; as practical tacts?and by whom offered 1 By the nation by which they were longest and most bitterly opposed. By the people, who, from their pre-eminent extent of commerce, have at once the best meana ot ascer taining the truth, aud the deepest interest in acting upon it. Suoh novel praotioal principles, so pro mulged, oannot, and will not tail to produce on other enlightened nations, a profound impression. Can any one believe it possible that Prance can long, in the faae of such faots, uphold her protective and prohibitory laws 1 And when Franoe gives way, as ?he assuredly will, it cannot be loug before the oth er etates of Europe will follow. Among the faots which have been brought to light in Uieae discussions, there are some so remarkable, and however consistent with the theories of econo mists, so surprising and unexpeeted, that they will be contemplated with muoh interest among your readers. That largo importations of foreign articles do not necessarily reduce the price ot domestic articles of the same class, is doubtless a conclusion which w;ll startle many. Bui what will be said if it be seriously maintained that, in many, if not in all cases, this! instead of being attended with a re duction, is followed by an augmentation of the price of the home-produced article 1 Yet here are facts, established on the most incontestible evidence. The import duty on flax was gradually reduced in England, and was at length altogether abolished in 1815. The following were the prices during the progress of reduction, the original amount of the duty being ?10 14s. 6d. Year. Price. 184 3 65s. to 70 184 4 03l. to 68 1815 651. to 68 1840, (Jan'y.) 70s. to 80 Thus the price was highett when the duty was en tirely removed! The duty on the importation of foreign cattle was abolished last year, by which it was universally ex pected that, the market being inundated with foreign meat, the price would fall so low as to ruin the gra ziers. We here subjoin the quantities imported, and the contract prices of meat supplied for the navy before and after the reduction Head of Contract Contract Oxen im- price of price of na Yter. ported, navy beef. ry pork.

In like manner, the duties on foreign wool were reduced, and yet the price of home wool gradually | rose, simultaneously with the reduced duty, and the ? increased importation:?

These remarkable facts are well worth the serious attention ot Americans who take an active part in the discussion ol the tariff question It were well to reflect whether any mere protective duties can do re.il benetit to the New England manufacturer, while it cannot be lor a moment doubted that they must huve a detrimental effect on all classes of do mestic consumers ; and this evil will be aggravated by every measure by which restrictive duties in England, or other parts of Europe, are removed. It would be a strange spectacle to behold the old conservative monarchical states of the world eman cipating themselves from the trammels of tradition al errors, and letting in the light of truth and know ledge upon the darkness which has for agea enve loped them, aad, at the same time, to behold the young democracy of the West clinging pertina ciously to ancient error, and closing every inlet against the light of truth. Your "Paris correspondent" will, perhaps, be ex cused tor a little exultation in the results of bis ratio cinations on this subject. It is now several months since your merchants and capitalists were warned by us of the coming repeal of the corn laws. That warning was lull, explicit and confident, and it pre ceded considerably the memorable announcement in the " Timt*" of the 4th December. In truth, we had good grounds for our assurances transmitted to you?grounds which left no doubt that, by whatever l>arty it might be consummated, a great and radical change was at hand. And what has been the re sult 1 Has our prediction outstripped the event 1 On the contrary, more, vastly more, than we anti cipated is likely to be realized. The abolition of the corn laws is but a small item in the grand total of good which is promised to the neople of Eng land, and ultimately to the world. Notning less is at hand than universal freedom of commerce. You will have seen, by the English journals, the details of the magnificent demolition ot the system of protective duties proposed by Sir Robert Peel. It is a real commercial revolution, and a noble ex ample of the bold application ot the true principles of pohticsl economy. Divested of a certain air of complexity and contrivance which the plan presents at the first view, its practical effect will be a fixed duty on corn of 4s. a quarter, for three years, at the expiration of which time the trade will be free. Hie average price of corn, tor the last two months, has been about Wis. The fixed duty of 4s. begins at 53s. It is probable, judging by present appearances, that the averages for the next three years will not fall below 52s. If this prove to be so, the new plan will reaolve itself into a fixed dnty of 4s. But let us suppose the price to fall?what la the limit, the range ot the new sliding scale ? When the average mar ket price ot wheat is below 4.9s., there is a fixed duty of 10s., and when it is above 52s., there is a fixed dnty of 4s., Between these narrow limits, the duty varies shilling for shilling with the price of corn. This is the sop?the crust?Hung to the land ed interest, and this for only three years, to stop their mouths. If they had a particle sf manhood in them, they would reject, with contempt, the beggar ly offering, and surrender themselves at once to the fate which awaits them on the 1st of February, 1849. But vou will ask what will be the fate of this ex traordinary measure in Parliament! Will the Com mons, who made Peel minister, ss the great defend er and protector of the landed interests, passitl Will the Lords, whose estates it will melt down, sanction it! That it willpaas is certain. But by what coarse or series of political operations is not so clear. It will be supported in the Commons by the whigs, the free trade party, the radicals, a part, if not all, of the Irish members, and such a fragment of the tory party as will adhere to the present cabinet. There is little doubt that this will form an actual numerical majority. But as there will certainly be a majority of the Lords against the measure, the question is, will this majority in the Commons be sufficiently great to overawe the Lords 1 It may be. But if not, then a dissolution and an appeal to the oountry, and an agitation of unparalleled violence, will be inevitable. The American merchant can now command a market for wheat of an average quality, if he can deliver it in the English perts ax or unaer 52s. the quarter; and probably this price may be maintained, or very nearly so, tor a considerable time.

The admission of Indian corn, free of duty, imme diately, is a part of the measure designed to remedy the loss of the customary food of the people, by rea son of the potato disease. A statistical report is published, at the close of each year, by the Trench government, exhibiting a body of perfectly ascertained tacts, which throw a striking and curious light upon the social and moral condition of this country. The results it exhibits will be especially remarkable, when compared with the condition of a country so young in its national exist ence as the United States. This report has just been j issued, and I presume some notice of its more re markable features, will be received with interest by your readers. In considering the facts reported, it must be remembered that they are baaed upon evi dence which invests them with the highest degree ol certainty and accuracy. Thus, the biruis, deaths, and marriages must be exactly known, because every ph) sician, midwife, or other attendant at a birth, is Bubject to severe penalties, if they do not report it at a certain public office, within twenty-four hours.? No body can be interred without a previous regis tration of the age, sex, and cause of death pf the deceased. No marriage is valid, if the parties do not register their names, ages, profession, dwel ling, &c , at a certain public bureau. Iu thiaway the most perfect and authentic statistical data are preserved. Again, as respects the articles of con sumption; every article which enters a town, is as certained as to its quality and quantity at the barrier, being usually subject to a toll called Octroi la thie way, the average quantity and quality of the food consumed by each individual, becomes known. It appears, then, by evidence of this kind, that the number of children annually born in Paris, is in round numbers 32,000. Of this number 31,500 only are born in wedlock, the enormous proportion of 10,500 being Illegitimate. Thus we have the as tounding fact, that of all the children born of the million of individuals who inhabit Paris, one-third are illegitimate. What an extraordinary condition of morals is indicated by this fact! But is this pe culiar to the capital, or is the whole country equal ly demoralized 1 The total number of births annu ally, in the entire kingdom, is 970,000, of which, 70,000 are illegitimate. Thus, taking the eutire country, there are seven illegitimate childreu in every hundred, while in Paris alone there are thir ty-three in every hundred. The comparative dis soluteness of murals in the capital, is evident. In connection with this, another still more curious and singular fact has been brought to light. It appears that the relative proportion of the sexes born, ia fixed and invariable, but is not the same among le gitimate as among illegitimate children. It haa been shown that among legitimate children there are born 94 girls for every hundred boys, while among illegitimate children there are 96 girls for every hundred boys. Thus it appears, that there are a larger proportion of females among illegiti mates than among legitimates. What a singular and inexplicable, yet inevitable conclusion does this lead to! It follows that the performance of the ce remony of marriage, must have a tendency to in crease the proportion of male children in the world. Present this bone to your physiolgists and moralists to pick. The reault is not casual, for it uniformly follows, from the aucceasive returns of a quarter of a century in France, and a similar proportion is found to obtain in other countries where strict sta tistics aie kept. I shall mention another extraordinary, but well ascertained fact, which presents a strange view of the moral and social condition ot the population of this vast city. It appears that of 27.000 deaths, which take place annually in Paris, 10,000 occur in tli - hospitals, and 1,000 In the prisons and the morfrur. In other words, forty-one per cent of the population of Paris die either in the hospital, the prison, or by suicide. Nothing short of the most incontrovertible official documents could place a statement so awfully horrible within the limits of credibility. It appears that, taking the whole country, there are upon an average, seven legitimate children for every two marriages. One-half of the children born in France die before they attain the age of twenty. Only one-third of the population live to be 46, and one fourth only attain their 55ih year. About one-fourth ot the children born, die before they complete their first year. Tms frightful amount of mortality is mainly ascribable to tne ra vage ol small-nox. In a former letter I detailed to you the terrible atrocities of the French army committed in Africa, against the wretched native tribes, who in hundreds, men, women and children, were inhumanly suffoca ted and baked alive in the grottos of the Dahra. A calamity has just befallen a division of the same ar my, which appears like Divine retribution. Seven or eight hundred men have been deatroyed by a snow storm, which came upon them in one of the mountain passes where they had pursued the flying natives. Never was sutlering more heartrending than that ol these unfortunate victims, who were either frozen to death or had their extremities fro zen off. Thus frost has avenged fire. On the heels of this, the news of another calamity has arrived. A thunder storm broke over one of the villages, in which a powder magazine has been stricken by lightning, and a terrific explosion has ensued,spread ing death and destruction to all around. Assuredly Frunce pays dearly for the barren glory of retaining her African colony. Among the scientific news which will have reach ed you, will be the discovery of a new planet, to be called Astros. Those who attended the public lec tures given by Dr. Lardner in America, will recol lect that they were told that a variety of circumstan ces attending the four new planets?Juno, Pallas, Ceres and Vesta?raised a strong presumption, amounting nearly to moral certainty, tnat these bo dies are in fact fragments of a single planet, which has, from some cause not known, been broken ; and Dr. Lardner said, if such were really the case, it was probable that vigilant observers, with powerful telescopes, would at later periods discover other frag ments moving round the sun, in the same region of the solar system. It will be interesting to learn that the observations already made on the new planet Astroa, fully bear out this anticipation. It is in fact one of the same group, showing all their common characters, and is iu fact another fragment of the wreck ol a shattered world. A happy observation and most adroit experiment haa been recently made by Faraday, which raises a strong presumption that light is only a particular modification of electrioity. You must not believe the newspaper exaggerations which tell you that this magnificent generalization has been actually estab lished. Some time must elapse, and much more intellectual labor and ingenuity must be spent upon the investigation, before that can be truly said. All that can be stated at present, with strict truth, is that a curioua and new experiment has been made, whicli proves that there ia some physical relation, hitherto undiscovered, between light, electricity and mag netism. If you take a spiral coil of copper wire, like that which ia used to form a spiral spring commonly used by bell-hangers, and send, by reflection from glass, a ray of light along its length, so as to form, as it were, the axis of the cylindrical coil, you will find that thia ray of light will be modified in a peculiar manner, whenever a current of electricity is sent along the spinal wire. It haa been long known that a rod of soft iron, placed in the manner we have here supposed the light to be placed, ia suddenly rendered magnetic by the same influence. Thus is established some analogy, the nature of which is yet to be explained, between electricity, magnetism, and light. But it is jumping rather too hastily to a con clusion, to say that we can thus prove that light, electricity, and magnetism, are only different modi fications of the same physical agent. In the art of inland transport, one of the moat striking modifications now iu progress, is the at mospheric railways. The individual who first urged this improvement on the European public, (at least, first in any practical form.) was a Mr. Pinkus, an American gentleman, who haa obtained several patents for improvements in it. The method now practised on the Croydon Railway in England, and preparing on the St. Germain's Railway here, ia substantially his, although it bears another name.? A tube, laid down between the rails, is partially ex hausted of air, by pumps which are worked by stations)? engines. A piston ia placed in thia tube, on one aide of which the atmosphere ia admitted, by whioh it ia thus pressed forward with a force pro portionable to its magnitude, and the degree of ex haustion ; aa it advances, it draws the train of car riages or wagons after it. Such, in general, is the principle of tne railway, which in particular locali ties has already superseded the locomotive engines. In the musical world aotbing signally memorable haa transpired lately. Balfe's opera of the " Star of Seville," haa dragged noisily its alow length along for a dozen nights, agreeably relieved by being alter nated with other pieces. It haa disappointed the public, and added nothing to the reputation of the composer of the " Bohemian Girl," and the "Maid of Artois." It is, in truth, not an inspiration, but a work "done to order," and cornpoeed against time, being contracted for " to be completed" in three months. You must not pat tiith in the announce ments of the Pans press on subjects of music and the theatres. It is thoroughly corrupt. In nine cases out of ten, the paragraphs which appear in it are written or paid for bjr the parties directly inter ested m the worka which are puflad. Aa I mentioned to you formerly, Verdi's operas have been brought out at the Italian opera here ; but notwithstanding their incontestable merit as must- j oal compositions, they have been coldly received, and have net been ancoeeaful. The circumstances under which they have been produced, are such as would sink even higher compositions than these, . excellent as they are. It has so happened that the | scores of these operas exclude all the arustical ce lebrities in the present opera troupe. Thus, both Nabucodonoeor and Ernum, the two operas already produced, include neither Grisi, nor Peraiani, nor Lablache, nor Mario. They are consequently in terpreted by artists such as Malvezzi, Ronconi, Derwis, firambilla, Taghstico, who, whatever be their capabilities, have not yet risen to any high de free of popular tavor; and the public go to the theatre is much for the sake ot the artiste aa lor the opera? x-rfaaps more so. Verdi should write tor the great ending artistes of the theatres of Paris and London j ind it report can be relied on, the Impresario ot the Queen's theatre has succeeded in engaging him to io so, at a large cost, in the course ot the present season. We have been deserted by the great instrumental performers. Thalberg, the Nafoleon of the piano forte, has just started on a provincial tour to the south, being engaged to produce his matchless per tormances at Toulouse, Lyons, Bordeaux, Montpe lier and Marseilles. We await bis return about ths first days of March. His March* funebrt has pro duced a furor, and among the other pieces now most frequently demanded irom his finger, may be mentioned his fantasias on the operas of"II Bar biere," "La Muette." and "La aomnambula."? While the one great pianist has moved South, the other haa proceeded North. Franz Lftx has just started for Weimar, stopping, on the way, to delight the inhabitants of Lille, and other intermediate citiea. The evening before his departure, he accom panied his celebrated cantata, in honor of Beetho ven, at the house of Jules Jamn, the well-known Fruilletoniit, where a party of professionals and amateurs were assembled to take leave ot the great performer. A national opera, entitled Hongady, has lately been produced at the grand theatre of PeHh, in Hungary, which has produced the greatest excite ment. It is composed by M. Erkel, on a libretto taken from the history of the fif teenth century. Ths composition is reported to be a most masterly piecs of instrumentation, and the choral parts magnifi cent The subject, that of William Tell, being con nected with the internal struggles of the people for their independence, is skilfully interspersed with national melodies, which render it popular, even among those who cannot appreciate its high musical pretenaiona. Meyerbeer has departed for Berlin, by command of the King of Prussia, to supennted the rehearsals and mtssen scenes ot the "Iphigenie"of Gluck. Jenny Lind has just appeared at Berun, with great success, in the part oi Alice, in "Robert le Diablo." Thia aitist wilt not visit Paris or London so soon as was exiected. The great danseuaes, Carlotte Grisi excepted, are in Italy. Taghoni, Fanny fillsler, Adele Dumaia tre, and Cento, are quartered among tht ultra or mountain theatres. The ballet of "Diable A Quatre," which I mention ed to you in a former letter, has had an immense run, and still continues to draw overflowing houses. A candidate for fame, on the piano forte, has ar rived hare from Germany, by name Sigisimund Goldsmith, and a young harpist of great promise, M. Kruger, from stuttgard, the latter being recom mended as harpiete in the chapel royal of the King ot Wurtemberg. Nothing new, deserving ot especial notice, has been produced at the Pam theatres, and every th>ng else at those of London has been eclipsed by the unbounded success ot Miss Cushman as Romeo, at the Haym&rket. Althcugh a certain fastidious por tion ot the London press has hitherto yielded quali fied praise to that gifted artiste, she has on this occasion, by the unequivocal character of her suc cess, and the long run of the same performance, extorted her well merited meed of praise from all. It cannot be disputed that she is a very extraordi nary woman, combining, with indomitable tores of will natural, genius of a very exalted, it not of the highest order. It is truly astonishing how perfectly she assumes, in the present performance, all the exter nal characters of theothersex. Many on your side of the water will say that these are more natural to her tnan her own; but then their wonder must be con ceded to the irresistible womanly tenderness and pathos which she throws into Mrs. Haller. She is at once the best Mrs. Haller, the beat Lady Mao beth, and the best Romeo cn the atage !! The author of " London Assurance" is now here, enjoying the amusements of the carnival. He has a five act comedy on ths stocks, which will probably be produced at the Haymarket before the close of the present season. Varieties.
