The long expected newt from Europe, by the Uuicorn, hat been received at last, and haa now been before the public nearly twenty-four hours ?a sutiicient time to enable an opinion to be formed of ita tenor, as regards our relations with England. The copious extracts which we give in this day's paper, from the press, and the proceed ings of the British Parliament, will, we think, jus tify us in saying that the news is pacific, in a great degree, and tends to preserve the peace between the two countries. Although the tone of the press is rather irritable, we look upon it as insignificant, compared with the developements that took place in Parliament a short time before the steamer sailed, h. It appears that on the 17th of March last, the Ear! of Clarendon moved for the production of auch por tions of the diplomatic correspondence that had passed between the American Secretary of State and the British minister, as would not be inconsistent with the public interests to produce. In answer to this motion, the Earl of Aberdeen made a somewhat lengthy reply, to the eflect that he did not consider it compatible with the public interest to produce the correspondence in question; and further that he could not bring himself to believe that any reasona ble doubt remained of the British Government being able to bring the Oregon question to a satisfactory conclusion. Under the circumatanees, this expres sion ol the Earl of Aberdeen, coupled with the refu sal to produce the correspondence in question, must impress upon every mind that the Earl of Aberdeen was sincere in his belief, and that the British Gov ernment did not anticipate a resort to extremities for the settlement of the question. This opinion is further strengthened by the report of a large meeting of traders, manufacturers, and others, which was held on the same day in London, and at which a reso lution was adopted declaring that the Oregon ques tion admitted of a satisi tctorv adjustment by negoti ation, and suggesting the appointment of Sir Henry Pottinger, on account of his success as a diplomatist in India and China, as the best person to be entrusted with the office of negotiator with the American go vernment for that purpose * When we consider that abundance of time had elapsed since the receipt of the refusal of the American Secretary of State to submit the Oregon qu*ation to arbitration, for the British public and Parliament to have formed an opinion cn that measure, and to adopt a line of con. duct and a system of measures corresponding with that opinion, the declaration of the Earl of Aberdeen in the House of Lords, and the expression ol opinion by the public meeting in London, deserve to be viewed as highly important, and as indicative of the intention of the British people and parliament, not to break the peace happily existing between the two countries if collision can, under any circumstances, be avoided. ? This, we think, is the view taken of the news by our citizens, and, accordingly, the stock market was more buoyant than it had been for some time past, and stocks of every kind advanced considers bly." Notwithstanding the pacific indications of the Earl of Aberdeen and the public, and the manifest desire there is to preserve the friendly relations be tween England and the United States, the Eng lish press continues to wage that war of words which it has carried on for so long a period against America and every thing American, and its tone is decidedly hostile. This state of things is a little strange, when we consider that, in the United States, the contrary is exactly the case. In the United States, the press, with but few exceptions, is decidedly in favor of settling our difficul ties with England by negotiation, and condemn the reckless course of the administration in declining all .measures leading to that result; while the government of England, on the other hand, is, and has always been desirous to settle these difficulties with America amicably, the English press has been loud in recommending a resort to peremptory measures, to bnn g about the same result. We can't account tor this anomalous state of things in any other way, than that the press ! in that country would prefer to have all the disas ters of war inflicted upon the two countries, than to forbear indulging in that wholesale mode of abuse that has marked its course since the revolu tionary war. This, however, is of little moment* as long as the public mind in that country, and the government, are disposed to peace. We consider this news from England, the pacific tone of the public mind as developed at the public meeting in London, and the avowal of the Earl o' -Aberdeen, in reply to the remarks of the Earl of Clarendon, of the highest importance at this par ticular juncture. The passage of Mr. Crittenden's compromise resolutions in the Senate by a vote of 40 to 14, is conclusive that a majority of that body is averse to the war policy of the ultra fifty-four forty men, and in/avor of settling the Oregou ques tion by compromise. Although the giving of the notice is authorized by those resolutions, they nev ertheless impliedly compel the President to resort to compromise before giving the notice. Indeed, we look upon these resolutions, and the large vote by which they were carried, more in the light of a solemn recommendation to both governments to re-open negotiations of this gexed question, and settle all the difficulties between the two countries, in relation to it, amicably and peaceably ? we look upon the* passage of these resolutions more in this light, than we do as a measure to abrogate the convention of the 20>h of October, 1818. Although the giving the notice is left to the discretion of P?e President, we think the responsibility of taking that step directly is pur posely avoided, for fear it would be construed into a war measure; and, in lieu there of, a peaceable re commendation to settle the question amicably, by compromise, is substituted. Taking all these circumstances into considera tion, the tone of the foreign news, an I the passage of Senator Crittenden's resolutions in the Senate, we are of opinion that this unfortunate question, which has created more injury to commerce, and excited more hostile feeling, than the whole of the territory in dispute is worth to either country, is in a fair way of being disposed of satisfactorily to both parties; and that, too, before the expiration of six months, unless some contingencies occur to mar the prospect. One of those contingencies is this < the House of Representatives may not concur in the resolutions passed by the Senate, and the war party may still persist in asserting the American claim to the whole of the Oregon terrritory. In the event of such being the case, the whole ! matter will be again thrown into the hands of Mr. Polk. If then, Mr. Polk should?despite , of the passage of the resolutions in the Senate, and the pacific tone of the Parliament and people of Great Britain?remain obstinate, and throw away the opportunity which is again afforded, of resorting to compromise, a war will follow, i Although England is desirous of peace, and in en tenng into a war with the United States would peril her existence, still the question has assumed such a shape, that in the eyes of all Europe and the whole civilised world, she would be compelled even at such a hazard, to engage in war with us, if the ultra claims of the administration should be insisted upon. It would appear, then, that there is an awful responsibility resting on the chief magistrate of the United States. It may be said that James K. Polk holds the peace of the world m the hollow of his >hand. God grant he may be found equal to the j emergency.

Al though the arrival* at Rio from Moatevideo were al most daily no new* of any importance could be ob tained by them. The English and French squad rons were still blockading Buenos Ayrea. U. S. ?tore ship Relief, commander Robb, arrived at Rio, , and would sail for New York in a few days. Files of the Jomal do Commtrcio and O Mtrcantil, from Rio Janeiro, to the 28th of February, are among our papers. They contain nothfng of inte rest. On the 26th of February, the Imperial Govern ment of Rio de Janeiro, acting in the absence of the Emperor, transmitted passports to General Don F. Rivera, Minister Plenipotentiary from Paraguay I to the court of Braxtl The O Mtrcantil gives the following singular piece of absurdity extracted from the Commtrcio Dtl Plata, of the 9th of February:? "Not long since there arrived at Rio de Janeiro, a 'scientific commission' front the United States, among whom was a certain French cavalier, who gave out that they came for the purpose of ex ploring the region of coun'ry watered by the rivers Parana and Paraguay. From Rio de Janeiro this commission of snvans proceeded on to the Rio Grande, and travelled through that territory, in a modest manner, in the quality and character with which they had invested themselves. From thence they proceeded to Uruguay; and when they arrived in the country and province of Corrientes, the tra vellers threw ofi the scientific mask which they had assumed, and made it known that they were neither more nor leas than a legation, despatched by the government of the United States to Paraguay, charged by said government with the commission of acknowledging the independence of the latter republic." The Frenchman, who accompanied them, was represented to be the Secretary of Legation. The journal adds that its in formant had forgotten his name, and inquires, "'What will President Rosas say to this contraband diplomacy of the United States 1" It distant people will believe the humbugs and stories of every traveller that they meet, concerning the United States, we know ot no remedy for it. It is difficult in this case to say which is moat contempti bte, the humbug and hoax of these travelling and vagrant plenipotentiaries, or the credulity which could swallow their idle stories and pretenaions. Gen. Paz, who commands the forces ot Corrien tes, Uruguay, Paraguay and Entre Rioa, is accom

panied in his camp by the English Admiral Hn thom and Capt. Trennart. He is at the head of 16 000 well disciplined troops. Among there, the soldiers ot Paraguay, who amount to 10,000, are highly spoken of. It is said that out of the whole number of the men in the Paraguayan army, only three or four can be found who cannot read or write. These items of news, though of a date anterior to our more recent advices, published a few days since in the Herald, are yet new in fact, though not in date, and are ot some interest in the great scarcity of information from those quarters. flarktu.
