Important Postscript?American Affaire. The Anglo-Galiican alliance,which has been grow ing and gaining strength for the last fifteen years, and which has now assumed the magnitude and im portance ol a " great fact,*' is a subject oi the highest interest to other States, and to none more so than the Republic oi the West. By an alliance, I do not mean a paper and parchment alliance, fabricated in Downing street and in the Rue de Capucines; nor a political pact, iormad by Sovereigns and their aa telliteato consolidate their own power,and strengthen the hands oi despotism. I mean an alliance of two great people, which has grown out of their com mon sympathies, and been cemented by their com mon interests. The bunt of admiration and gene, rous sympathy with which the conduct and result of the revolution of July was received by the English people, and the acclamation with which it was hail ad by the English press, was the commencement of that national amity between these countries, which has so happily displaced their ancient feeling ol hos tility, imagined to be eternal. Since 1880, a multi tude of causes have conspired to cherish the growth of that national friendship which is now so potent to the world. The King oi the Barracades, long re sident during nis exile in England, had formed Eng lish habits, associations and friendships?had be oome intimately familiar with the working ol the in stitutions of this country?had seen the causes which stimulated the increase oi her vast commerce, and wjjich augmented the resources of her unparalleled manufactures; he had seen the seeds sown which have since germinated and fructified in universal re ligious toleration, the spread of municipal institu tions, parlimentary reform, and at this moment, in the glorious example oi the declaration of ireedom of commerce with the whole race of men. These things profoundly impressed this astute monarch with the policy of extinguishing the spirit of enmity between the French ana English nations, of gradu ally and aalely assimilating their institutions, and of laying the loundations of a great and permanent alliance Between them. Hit wise and prudent de signs have worked themselves to a fulfilment. Every public event, en both sides of the Chan nel, indicates very plainly how unpopular any mea sure wonld be which might have the remotest tendency to distnrb the m present tranquillity.? To their pacific policy is to be ascribed the visi ble increase ol f ivor which M. Guizot and his ca binet command in the chambers. To his supposed leaning against England is to be ascribed the visibly diminished influence of M. Theirs. This states Sn has indeed been rendered sensible of his mis s, and baa omitted no opportunity to explain away his conduct, and to re assert and promulge his desire ts maintain the English alliance, ao far aa is consistent with the independence of France; still, the French public have been rendered so sensitive ly alive to the magnitude of the interests depending on peace, that they extended their countenance ra ther to him whose declarations in its favor are the mast unqualified and unequivocal, notwithstanding the natorai leaning which they have towards the mors democratic spirit which hae characterised the cuter oi M. Thiers, compared wuh the prudent riinmiftispi of M. Guizot .Nor arc similar manilesutions of opinion want ingvn this side of the Channel. Remember how the public mind was agitated when Lord Palmcr stoa, four years ago, was supposed to be so near em broiling the countries on the Syrian question The alarm was not lean intense at that ep-jcb in London than in Paris. How deep and lasting the impression was has been lately rendered conspicuously appa rent in the failure of Lord John Russell to lortn a cabinet, on the temporary resignation of Sir Robert Feet, what was the cause oi that failure 1 Was it not the insurmountable objection of one of the most influential whig leaders, countenanced, as is well knows, by the tacit acquiescence qf several oth er liberal members of the party, against giving the foreign department to Lord Palmerston, from the apprenension of the possibility, however remote, of the disturbance of the amicable relations with France 1 Thus n alight risk?a remote possibility? the shadow of the shade ol danger of a war with France, was regarded in ao serious a light as to breakup the incipient liberal cabinet, and restore the reins of power to the tones. Lotd Aberdeen, the tory and conservative secretary tor foreign ?(fairs, is preferred to Lord Palmerston,the whig and radical secretary for foreign affairs, simply because the pa cific spirit ol the former affords a guaranty for ine maintenance of the entente an dials, which might be endangered by the bellicoae policy of the latter, his louu protestations to tbb contrary notwithsutnding. Nor were the manifestations on this oefeasion con fined to one side of ths Channel. The prospect of the return of Lord Palmerston to the Foreign office spread agitation m Pans and shook the Bourse. The sagacious Louis Philippe expressed to the British Ambassador the alsrm, which in common with the French public, was ielt by the court of the Tuillertes. You cannot fail to have noticed the sedulous en deavors of the two governments, to bring into co operation on every occasion which presents itself, the armed lorcee ot the two nations, and how eagerly every opportunity is seized lor the interchange ot na tional courtesies. In the affair of Rio de la Plata, small as it is, the British and French admirals range their ships against a common enemy, and the sea men raise the same shout of triumph and vie with each other to secure the same glory. In tho still smaller affair of Madagascar, we again find them fighting side by side. When the veteran Soult, the impersonation of the French army, presented himself in London, as the representative ot France, at the coronation, he was hailed with an enthusiasm such as no foreigner ever before excited. Mo demonstration of respect was thought too much to be lavished on the hero of an oundred fignts, and the representative, ot the na tion whose oulv acknowledged rivalry how, with England, is Li the cultivation of the industrial a.ts. the improvement ol the condition of mankin i, and the diffusion of liberal institutions over Europe. Considerable interest is now twit respecting the reported visit ot Queen Victoria, to Louis Philippe. The month of J uiy is nan d aa the probable period of this remarkable event. The palace of the Grand Trunoa is to be prepared, aa the residence ol the British Bovereign and her suite. F6tcs of more than Oriental splendor, recalling the scenes enacted thare by the court of Loms XIV, are to be given in the spacious haHs ol the chateau of Versailles.? Magnificent spectacles are to be produced, in the theatre attached to that palace, which is to be reno vated lor this occasion, m which all the leading ar tistes ot the capital are to assiat. Among the courtesies interchanged by the royal ties ol France and England, aa amusing character istic ot French "petitei soma," may be mentioned. His majesty, Louis Pnilippe, has lately sent to Buck ingham Palace, a case containing a cadeau for the dob of the Princess Royal, consisting of a miaia tuto wardrobe ot elegant workmanship, containing four complete doll's dresses?an evening and morn ing dress, and two complete TnletU? de Bal?from the aitiitrt of the celebrated Madame Barenne.? Each of the drosses it n chef d'auvrc ot us kind. The miRuteet parts have been the objects of artistical skill- The pocket handkerchiefs, ol costly cambric, are richly embroidered and hemmed with the most expeasive lace. The silk stockings, the shoes, ths cashmere shawls, the chapeaux,the black lace scarfs, have been all fabricated expreaely, and finished with unheard of labor and care. A parwe ol dia monds of the first water, tor the head-dress, with bracelets, earrings, and necklace to correspond, have been made expressly by the royal jewelleia.? The enure collection is beautifully arranged in the drawers and cases ot the exquisite bureau which has been prepared for it. These sod such like proceedings are trifles. Bui they are trraes symptomatic ol more serious mat ters; end taken with other indications,are auffiucut ly significant of the spirit which animates, uot the two courts only, bat the two nnUonn T he mutual cordiality which la indicated by such evidences, is now about to be promoted by measures of a inr more substantial and serious character. Iim- annihila tion cf the legislative restrictions on Kugiuh com merce, will involve the removal ot n imm ol duties which have hitherto fixed narrow limits to the im portation into England, of a long catalogue of pro ductions of Frenoh industry. These will now be freely poured into the British ports; and a lively im pulse has already been felt, at the mere announce ment of the coming measures in Lyons and other seats of French manufactures. Nor is this all. The liberal policy of the British legislature has already opened the eyes of M. Guizot and his colleagues, to their true interests, and they only wait the consum-! mationof the system of free trade on the other side of the Channel, and the termination of the ap proaching general election in France, to submit to the new Chambers an improved and relaxed sys tem of duties, reciprocating to as great an extent as the state of public opinion in France will admit, the spirit of the reformed commercial system of Great Britain. Such being the relative position of the two coun tries and their governments, nothing could be more unpalatable to France at this moment than any dis turbance ol the general peace. It, unfortunately, a war should ensue between England and the United , States, France would maintain a strict neutrality.as , the Guizot cabinet has expressly declared, a decla ration to which the opposition in the Chambers has 1 been compelled to give its adhesion. Butitisim-i possible not to perceive that this neutrality would be attended with a leaning towards England. It would have been otherwise twenty years ago. But these twenty years have produced a total revolution in the international relation and spirit of the two countries. It is necessary also to add, that on the Oregon question it is understood that the opinion of Louis Philippe, as well as that of hiB ??sent cabinet, is against the claims advanced by resident Folk and those who think with him. The part of the message which seems to repudiate the allegiance of the States to the common principles of international law, and which disclaims all title of European powers to interfere in the affairs of the Western continent, has met with the most deoided dissent of all parties here, as indeed might naturally have been expected. Had Mr. Polk confined the ap plication of his principle strictly to the disputed ter ritory of the Oregon, and to the United States and Great Britain, it would not have excited opposition; but the principle he announced had too wide and startling a generality, not only as to the extent, but also as to tne permanency of its application, to es cape arousing the most jealous apprehensions on the pah of every European power possessing either tV estern colonies or Western commercial or nation al interests. Be assured that this part of the mes sage was ill-considered and ill-advised, and could tend to no really good purpose. This was the more to be regretted because that document, in some other respects, was a remarkable and masterly state ""ff is agreed upon all hands, by every class and party of intelligent enquirers, that the Oregon ques tion must now he brought to a definite issue; and if the formal service of the year's notice be intend ed by one party, and understood by the other, as a mere.declaration ot the pressing necessity of bring ing this point to an immediate and final settlement, then, assuredly, ao rational man can attach blame to the advocates of such a step; nay, there are many enlightened friends oi peace, who earnestly desire that such a result should be accelerated by every legitimate means. In short, it is agreed that the time has arrived when the establishment oi a recognized sovereignty in the Oregon territory is indispensable. Due regard to British and American interests, equally and imperiously demand this. The sovereignty cannot be allowed any longer to remain in abeyance. While, as 1 have said m iny former letters, no one entertains any practical be lief or living faith in the possibility of two nations, like the United States and Great Britain, with so much to gain by peaceful international commerce? with every thing to lose by tie suspension ol their amicable relations?rushing recklessly into a war, upon a cause of such trivial magnitude as the pre sent, constituting little more than a point ot honor; Eel, at the same time, the deepest solicitude is fell y all for the final, peaceful, and honorable settle ment of this questiou. If arbitration be contemplated, it is necessary to bear in mind that no European sovereign will award the whole territory ot tne Oregon' to the United States. If, therefore, the question to be submitted, on the part of the Union, he whether or not the whole territory is to be annexed, arbitration would be a farce, and ought not to be consented to. Bui if a partition of tne territory be contemplated by the Union, then no better arbitrator, at least among sovereigns, could bo found than Louis Philippe. When I have said that be would lean towards Eng land on that question I relerred only to the point raised by President Polk?that is, " the whole ol Oregon for the e tales." This assuredly would not be awarded by the King of the French. Tne atrocities reported to have been committed against the Catholics, by the functionaries of the Greek Chnrch, have excited a feeling of general in dignation throughout Europe, and among people oi every religious faith. You will, doubtless, have ob tained trom the newspapers, the report ot these hor rors, than which nothing more shocking to humanity can be found, even in the lives of the martyrs. It is, however, due to strict justice, to remember that as yet, an txpartt statement on the question is all thai the world has received. The nuns who escaped have found their way to Rome, and laid their case before the Vatican The subject was brought by His Holiness under the notice of the Emperor ot Russia, on the occasion oi their interview,when the latter lately visited Rome: and the Emperor then disavowed all knowledge ot the circumstances, and declared that he would cause an inquiry to be made, and it^my subjects of his were guuty, they snould be brought to punishment. Meanwhile, however, the Human government lies under the most odious, aspersion before the world. In the early part of the month, it was whispered among persons considered to possess good means of information, that an organized insurrection through out Russian Poland, was to break out on Monday, the7th February; and it was confidently stated, that an understanding prevailed to an alarming ex tent between the disaffected and the Russian army This spirit of resistance to despotism, Is, in fact, diffused more or leas throughout Eastern and South era Europe. Mild as the Prussian monarchy is m its practical absolutism, and paternal as its swsy is admitted to be, there is a fermentation in process there, which ere long will compel the sovereign to yield, and confer something of a representative cha racter on the government of that couatry. Through out Austria, Hungary, the Rhenish States and Italy, this popular spirit breaks out irom time to time, in a sufficiently significant manner. In my last letter, 1 mentioned to you the anoma lous position of Sir Robert Peel in the House, on the occasion of his opening speech on the corn laws?cheered by his opponent, and chilled by the silence of his tnends. The debate was resumed on the 9th of February, three weeks being allowed to the protectionists to raise the country against what u Da they declared to be impending ruin. During this interval, despair seemed to paralyse their powers. Some silly exhibitions were got up by them in the West Riding of Yorkshire, which answered the purpose of the league even more effectually than the oratory of Cobden or the harangues of bright; lor they covered the party with more ridicule than even did the immortal curry powder speech of the Duke of Norfolk. But when the debate in the Commooa was returned on the 9th, then it was that the leading conservatives poured out the phiala of their wrath on the devoted head of their unfortunate leader. The entiie vocabulary of Billingsgate was exhaust ed in the House and the press upon him. In pro portion to the utter absence of all possibility of suo ccss in defeating this vast commercial measure, was the reckless fury with which they aasai ?ed its author. Every complimentary allusion made to Sir Robert Peel by the liberal party, was received with uncontrolled laughter, and unauppreased hisses, by the party of ihe Right Honorable Baronet; and eve ry attack upon him,- however personal and scurri lous, was received with shouts of approbation. The reports oi Bis former conservative and provction lat speeches, recorded in the volumes of Hansard, wers mercilessly read, verbatim, from night to night, for the entertainment of the audience, in the Theatre ef St. Stephen's, in juxtaposition with hit late revolutionary oration. It is necessary to know the irritable and thin-skinned susceptibility of this statesman to estimate the agony in which he writh ed under these unrelenting inflictions. During the debate he occupied himself incessantly with masses of papers, reading, taking notes, and despatching letters, as though he wera not listening to word of the torrent oi invective and abuee which, without lnterranetoo, wera abowered upon him. Occasion ally he betrayed his irritation by a certain twitching and rubbing of his back. Beside him; however, tits colleague, Sir James Graham, was characteris tically impassive and phlegmatic; every now and then, when the attack became moat furious, taming his eyes to the chandelier suspended over him, with a smile ot stuaied and deliberate contempt. After a protracted debate .of twelve nights, the fate of monopoly was d-cided on Friday laat (27th alt ), by a majority of 97, in a house of 577. At 4 o'clock in the morning ihe debate closed, when 837 members recorded their votes in favor ot tree trade, and 240 against it. The liberal party present amounted to 238; of these only eleven voted in favor ol monopoly. f)f ttie lorv patty, were present, oi whom.112 voted in favor oi tree trade, nod 281 against it.' The tellers completed the above number of votee. j The report of this memorable diviaidta has spread a thrill of joy throughout the body politic of Britain, I which hat been lelt from the heart to the tips of the extremes! members. The com laws are dead and gone. Monopoly is stretched in its cerements. A voice has gone lorth among the nations, which will resound to the extremities of the ..-arth. The eman cipition ol commerce is decreed by a power from wnich there is no appeal. The Autocrat^ of the North has heard it. The despot of central Europe, the more paternal monarch of Prussia, have been roused by the announcement. It has resounded in the halls of the Palais Bourbon and the Luxem bourgh, and it will not have resounded in vain. Tne establishment of free trade in Eugl&nd is a great event in itself. But it ia a small event when put in juxta-poaition with its vast consequences. The movements of the other planets, in harmonious order round the great central fountain ?f li<;lu and warmth, are not more inevituble consequences of that great law which Newton inferred from the fall ot an apple, than is the fact that the chains must drop from the limbs ot universal commerce all over the world, as a cousequeuce ot the emancipa tion of commerce in Eugland. America and France, the two great models of constitutional Btates, will immediately follow, and the rest of the world cannot afterwards lag behind. The bewtldement of joy in the public and in the press is such, that it is really difficult to write or think collectedly of any subject but this great and absorbing one. Oue of the most curious conse quences of this political convulsion is the utter de struction of old-established parties which has at tended it. The great flood ot puilic opinion has swept away all the political laudinarks. The buoys which guided the vessels ot party have been forced from their moorings and sent adritt. The very channels themselves have changed their positions. Shoals and quicksands have disappeared, and, in a word, the chart of tbe political waters has been rendered obsolete and useless. New soundings must be taken, new beacons must be erected, new pilots must be elected, or the old ones must be re educated. The whig party is annihilated, not by being broken up, but by being swamped tn its general fusion with the liberals of every shade ana com plexion. The chartists and corn-law leaguers are annihilated from having no subject ot complaint on which they can command the sympathies ot any portion ol the nation. The tory party has been pul verised by its leader, and its own blind obstinacy and headlong selfishness. It has dashed out its brains against the wall of protection. But let us not say aught that is ill of the dead; it has ha 1 its day Requietcat in pace. God be with it! It was a party, take it all in all, we (hope that we) ne'er shall look upon its like again. It is astonishing how entirely this discussion has withdrawn the public attention from the Oregon dispute ; or it would perhaps be more correct to say,what entire confidence it has produced that that dispute will be peaceably settled. No one can sup pose lor a moment that after opening her ports to the free importation of food with one hand, Eng land will shut those ot America against its exporta tion with the other. Nor will any one believe that America, with a mart like England freely offered to every description ol her produce, will reject it lor such a miserable political crotchet aa the Oregon question. To admit such a supposition would be equivalent to issuing a statute ot lunacy against the uaiions. No; tbe Oregon question will be settled? in what manner, the people of England do not care a rush, provided the national honor is saved trom stain. The impression which the battle, or rather battles, ol tbe Butlej has produced in England, is of a very qualified character. The victory is held by some to be great and decisive; by other^ to be only the beginning ef a series ol calamitous successes which Britain could very well have diepenaen with. That tbe Punjaub will be,or rather is, conquered and annexed to the British empire there is liule doubt But Algeria was many years ago conquered and an nexed to the Gallic Empire. Is it surprising that many behold in the Sikha another race of Arabs, and dimly discover through the misu of futurity, difficulties and disasters awaiting ua in this great section of India, which arc typified by those acainst which the brave armies of France have been vainly straggling for years, and in opposing which that nation has already eo fruitlessly expended forty mil lions of treasure, and shed in torrents, the blood of tier bravest citizens. As the theatre of military operations, certainly the most remarkable and important wkicn have been exhibited since the battle of Watterloe, the Punjaub will no dount be regarded by your readers with feelings of much interest. The part of the Indian territory called properly the I mag PuDjaub, covers an area whose superficial magni tude is little less than an hundred and forty thousand square miles?peopled by nearly five million of souls 'i nough much of thia extensive territory is rich and lerttle, yet it include* also consideraole deserts, mountain chains of inacc ssibie elevation, and vast tracts covered with perpetual snow. The Punjaub proper, is one boundless plain, lying between the rivers Sutlej and Indus, and nitersecled by four large rivers, which are the sources of its fertility, andfacilitate the transport of goods and produce from one part of the kingdom to another. Nature has be stowed on the Pnnjaub two thousand miles of inter nal navigation, wnich at a moderate expense might be greatly augmented by art. The lace of the coun try is a slightly inclined plain, sloping from its eas tern limit, gradually,, towards the bed of the Indus. Us rivers, consequently, and the doaba which sepa rate them, descend regularly below each other, till we reach the mighty stream which, for a apace of n-arly five hundred miles, bounds the triangle on the west. Here the greatest heat felt on the surface of the globe, is som> times experienced, the sun's rays being fiercely reflected from a sand almost vi trified by constant exposure to tbem. Prom the edge ol this vast plain a mountain region abruptly rises, ibe loftiest, the wildest, and toe most wonderfully diversified in the world, containing secluded habita ble valleys, cradled in serene brightness above the region of the clouds; lakes of all dimensions, the sources of great rivers, with piles of glaciers tower ing to a height which the foot of man has never yet scaled. On these aenal heights the boundary of the Celestial Empire meets and olends, as it were, with that ot India; and here, also, is the birth place of many of those strange opinions, which, rooaified by the accidents of climate, by time, by mixture with other superstitions, have swayed the universal inmd ot Asia for many thousand years. Here human life is sparingly distributed, and seems to be almost t-ublimated into lnactiflh, by the height to which it is thrown up, whilst at the foot of the mountains, over the whole plains of Hindostan, men swarm like bees, and are little addicted to those quiet habits of contemp lation which delight the sages of Thibet. Com merce, however, finds its way even into those dreary rrgions,whence,at stated intervals, Caravaas pass into the independent slates of Central Asia. On the west of the Indus the Sikhs possess two provinces, that of l'eahawhur and the Deragat, stretching from the Cabul nver to the confines ol Upper Scinde. Here, and in the doab of the Indus and the Jhylum, we meet with that lofty salt range of country which constitutes the most extraordina ry feature ot this part ot India; while in the imme diate vicinity, are thoee coal fields, not yet suffici ently explored, which will probably in comin: ages, provs an unbounded source of wealth and power to the country. Tnroughout the plains, there is every where an excess of animal life. All the tremen dous gams of India, from the lion and the tiger down, may be said to swarm in the jungles, with endless tribes of birds, remarkable for ike brilliancy 01 their plumage or the melody of their soag. The vegetable productions are not less numerous and various. Most ol the fruits and flowers indigenous or naturalized in India abound here, together with many transplanted from northern latitudee. The sugar-eane and indigo of the Punjanb are equal, perhaps, in quality to any in the East, and of many other productions ot the country, the same may be said. By the ancients, its rivers were said to run over golden sands; but, in reality, it has scarcely any auriferous streams except m the Alpine depen dency ot Balti. where the golden particles roll out trom beneath the snow. As to the population, that which may with pro priety be called the military class, la by soms con sidered neither numerous nor powerful, while the pacific portion of the inhabitants, constitute every where an overwhelming majority. The Sikh class will dwindle gradually away, and the country may ultimately prove to be one ot the moat useful of the British colonies?at all events, its conquests, whe ther for good or tor evil, seems inevitable. Considerable interest was excited among the En glish and Americans, in Paris,by the announcement mat Bishop Hughes ot New York, would preash st the church ol St. Phillippe du Route, on the 15th aad 22d. This church was selected because of its position in the midst of the residences of the English and American population, in the Faubourgh Si. Honott. The eongirgation, en the 15ih, ot which we bad the pleasure ol being a part, consisted ot about five hun dred persona, almost exclusively English and Ame ricans. The Bishop preached lor an hour on the hr?t verse ot the 4th chapter ot 8t. Matthew ? " Tina was Jesus led upot the Spirit,in'? ,bf wild erness, 10 be tempted 01 ihi Devil; and when he had tastod toriy days aad torty nights, he was alter wards an hungered. And when the tempter came tohui.be said, -It thoubathe 8onofltod.com mand thai these atones be made bread.' But ha an swrrcil and said,' It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth ont of the mouth of God.'" The subjects of the sermon were penance and confession Alter pre senting a summary ot the arguments, from the na ture of man. and tne condition and qualities of the human mind, in lavor oi the immortality of the soul, borrowed app arently from the writings ot Plato, the Bishop showed how these dark and unsatisfactory surmises were confirmed and cleared up by the voice ofrevelation He then enlarged upon (he comfort able effects of confession, and the efficacy of pen ance. He touched, with some reaerve and discre tion on the diflerences of the Protestant church and

the churcli ot Rome, on thesedoctrinea, designating the seceders trom the latter by the charitable epithet of bia "separated brethren." He appealed with a good deal of force to the experience ot his audience, of the consolatory effect which all have felt in unbosom ing their griefs to a beloved and trusted friend ? How much more then must be the comfort of com muning with the Saviour himself, through the im mediate person of his minister and authorised rep resentative ! The Bishop noticed with some skill and tact, the shift to which the reformed churches were forced to resort, owing to their abandon ment of the holy sacrament ot penance and confes sion; and it is but fair 10 say, that the Protestant Episcopal church would be hard pushed to repiy to him consistently, without tearing trom its ritual the leaves containing the confession and absolution of the morning service, and more especially the very unequivocal absolution, personally pronounced by the clergy in the ministration for the sick. Of the Bishop's discourse on the 22d, we cannot speak for not having been able to be present, on that day. As I foretold in my former letters, Balfe's opera of tne "Star of Seville." is dead and goue.Jh has not lived fifteen nights. The loss to the Academie is considerable, a great expense having been lavished on its production The musical world is, however, compensated for this disappointment, by an unex pected gratification at the Opera Comique. Halevy's new opera " Lea Mousquetaines de la Reine," Has been produced with immense and well merited suc cess This opera is destined to become one of the greatest favorites of the musical world. As it re quire < two good tennra and two good sopranos, it will, however, be difficult to produ !uce it at provin cial theatres with success. ' Louis Philippe and his court contribute much to the vogue of the musical drama. There is a thea tre in each of the palaces, with all the appointments necessary to give effect to the performances. Here, oae night in each week, thsre ia a performance to which the court and its guests are invited. Rossi ni's opera of "Guillaume Tell,"Halevy'a "Mousque tairies," Cimaroaa'a "Matnmonia Secreto," and the grand ballet of " Le Diable a Quatre," have been successively produced there. The voice of Duprez the celebrated tenor of the Acadamie. is failing fast His place in the musical world will be supplied by Ro^er, of the Opera Co. miqae, who is now probably the finest living tenor. Rubini may be considered aa having retired, al though efforts are made, and enormous pecuniary inducements offered to him by Lumley, the direc tor of the London opera, to return to the stage for a tew nights tbia season. If he should comply, it will only be the list flicker of the lamp. Taglioni, who is about to retire to her villa and estate on the Lake of Com". has invited Fanny Elesler, Fanny Cento, Lucille Grahn and Cailoua Gtiai to pass with her the next summer recess. She retires on a large fortune. Meyerbeer has brought out his new cpera of the "Campot Silesia," with immense success. Itiato be produced next month at the Royal and Imperial j Theatre ot Vienna, M'lle. Jenny Lind performing the principal part. It is said that in the Are, vivaci ty, and versatility of her genius, thia artiste has been equalled oy none since the death of Malibran Verdi's operas continue to be the rage at the thea tres of Italy. They have failed in Paris. In thia city a grand musical event has occurred. A really splendid opera, splendid in all the attribu tions of that species ot dramatic entertainment, has been brought out at Drury Lane, with a success ue ver exceeded in that or any other theatre. " The Criuaoeis" wo produced for the first time on last Thursday evening, to such an audience aa we have seldom seen assembled. To say the house was crammed, from the floor to the roof, would be say ing little. That we have sometimes seen before.? But the quality, intellectual and artistical rank of the audience?the nrevence of all the great celebri ties in the world of music and of dramatic art?pre vented an imposing coup d'dail such as we have very rarely seen The plan, plot, dramatii ptrtontt and general Irame- work ot the opera ia the work of M. de St. George, a Parisian playwright, who, having long worked in harness with the celebrated Scribe, is now trying his wings independently and alone ? He ia the author of the "Mt usquetaires," so recently successful at the Opera Gomique, at Paris. I need not describe the plot of the "Crusaders," as you will see it in all the London papers of last week. The dialogue ia by Mr. Bunn, the manager of the thea tre, and the music is by Benedict. It bids fair to run, without interruption, to the end of the season. Miaa Cushman and ber sister have jest concluded a most successful and long protracted engagement at the Haymarket, daring which they play "Romeo and Juliet" three timea a week, for about two months, with an interruption of a night or two, on which Talfoard's "Ion" was produced without auch success as to justify its continuance. In truth, the fault here was in the play, and not in the aruats, it. Th 1 ~ " and the public felt it. The Misses Cushman are lust gone to Dublin, where they open this evening (March 2.) Miss Gush man's fortune is made. The ball is at her foot. She is now inconteatib.y, by the suffrage of the British public, at the head of the Bri tish stage. It is very questionable, whether, in the opinion of the sounder portion ot tha critical public, she does not already stand above Macready. PoaracaiPT?Tueadsy Evening, 8d March?The American news to the 9th nit., brought by the Par trick Henry, to Liverpool, last night, arrived here thia morning, and has produced a lively aenaation. The reported rejection of arbitration by the cabinet ot Washington, has created much alarm, and the renewed claim to the whole k territory still more.? We have not, however, yet received the whole cor respondence, which is expected hourly by a clipper schooner, said to have sailed in company with the Patrick Henry, brioging the government despatch es. On the whole, this arrival haa produced much disappointment, and filled the public mind with so licitude for further information. The leading arti cle of the Herald of the 9th ult. haa been quoted by the principal journals of thia day, and has been read and referred to, with feelings oi profound interest. The houses of Parliament pissed a vote of thanks to the army in India, for the victory of the Sutlej, last evening, with auch acclamation and enthusiasm aa I have never heard within the walls o( St. Ste phen's.

Sumuci Pale vs. Robert Danlaf.?This wee e suit brought for the recovery of three months' servi ces, at >18 per month, while in the employ of the defen t. It appei " dant, as a diiver ot a horse and cart. It appears that in the month of February, 1846, the defendant agreed with the plaintiff for one year's services, at $18 per month, including board and washing, and that he was to com- I mence work two weeks from the time of making the contract. He did so commence, and remained in the em ployment of the defentant tor three months.and that, being dissatiified, he left his service He now sues for the recovery of three months' services ; and the defen dant sets up a plea that, inasmuch as the re-vices were contracted for one year, and the plaintiff left before the expiration of the term, be cannot recover. To rebut this position, the plaintiff says bis contract to serve for one year was void, because it comes within the section of the statute ot frauds, declaring void all agreements which by their terms are not to be completed in one yoar from the making thereof, unleaa auoh agreement be made In writ ing ; and this contract being for a year, and to com mence a fortnight after the making of it, and not baing in twriting. is, tnereloro, void, and the plaintiff ia enti tled to recover for hie thiee months' services, tha same as if no contract ware made?to wit, upon a quantum mtnui. His honor the Judge thought that thia contract , cornea within the statute above cited, and is void, as it I was not to bo completed within a year from tha making | thereof. Hia honor further decided that, in hia opinion. ! there was no case in thia country that gives thia clause | of the statute thia construction ; but in England, where ( the section of the statute of frauds ia nearly similar to our own (the difference being, that in England tha party cannot aue on such an agreement, and in thia country the agreement ia declared absolutely void), the court re marked that the high authority of Lord Lyndhurat ins mined its position, as wall a* other eminent judges, in cases hereafter referred to. The case of Snelling vs Lord Hunting field, in latCrom. Mesa and Roscoe's re ports. was where the plaintiff hired with the defendant on the 30th July, to serve as hia bailiff for one veer from the 34th of the same month. In that ease, Lord Lyndhurat saya : " The quealien is at what time the contract was made ; for if it were made on the 30th of July, and waa for a year'* service, to commence on the 34th of Jufy, it waa not a contract to bo performed within a year, upon which, by the 4th section of tho statute of (rands, no action oonld be made, being an agree ment not to be performed within one year from the making thereof." Tha word "performance," used in the ?tatnte of fraud*, tneaus a complete and not a partial per formance ; and a contract for ayear'a larvice, to com mence at a day subsequent to the making ot the contract, ia void unlets in writiDg. Bracegltdlo vs. Heald, 1 B and At, 733 ; Boy dell vs. Drummond, If East reports. 143 ; Birch vs. Liverpool. 9 Bam and Cress, 393 ; and also Shute vs. Dorr, 6th Wendell, 304, sustain this view oltbeceae.

This was an ac tion brought to recover damages lor frequent alleged as saults ana battery, upon the person of the plaintiff, by the second mate (the first named detendent) of the baik Inca, which sailed from the port of Baltimore in the mid dle of last April. The second of these defendants is the master of said vessel; and aa it is urged that ha did not interfere or canae the suspension of hia subordinate in hi* alleged brutality of conduct, he becomes personally liable in this instance. It, however, appeared that the Captain reprimanded Wilson for the arbitrary exercise of his anthoiity upon two different occasions, and that subsequently no farther difficulty occurred.
