A new law having passed the Legislature, admitting the im ?ortation of foreign com and provisions at a very low rate of uty, an opportunity will be given to those who sre desirous to ship to the Glasgow market, to open a good connexion with the subscriber, who has beeu hfteen years in the Grain and Provision trade ; and as there has hitherto been none of any importance, or who had any practical knowledge of that trade in Glasgow, a better opportunity could not be desired by re spectable houses to form a conneition in that market. Liberal advances will be ^iven to their shippers. From the subscriber's long experience and knowledge of the Grain and Provision Trade, and also his frieudly intimacy with the buyers, a large aud respectable trade may be calcu lated upon.

At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon wo received intelligence atj this office of the arrival of the , steamship Cambria, not at Bostoa, but as a wreck, having gone ashore in a tluok fog, on Capo Cod, on Saturday night last. The Cambria had her full complement of pas sengers, all of whom, fortunately, it is expected, will be saved. When our agent left the wreck, two had got ashore, one of them Mr. Blak^e, a merchant of Boston. The intelligence of her arrival and unfortunate destiny, reached Boston at 4 o'clock on Sunday afternoon, and soon after our express started, and arrived at this city at 4 o'clock yesterday after noon, with the most melancholy and disastrous news that has reached us for many a day. Steamboat Cambria Ashorr on Capr Cod.? The steamship Cambria, Captain Judkins, left Liverpool on the 19th ult., and arrived at Halifax on the 1st inst., with 90 to 100 passengers?landed 20 at Halifax, and started for Boston. About 20 | minutes to 12 on Saturday night, the weather I foggy, and the ship running at half speed, and about taking soundings, the ship struck on the beach of Truro, some five miles from Highland Light, Cape Cod. The engines were reversed, the anchors thrown out, and every exer tion made to get her off, but without effect; it was about half tide when she struck, and the weather calm, though there was a considerable swell ot the sea. At the last accounts she was heeding south, and very little apprehension was felt for her safety. Geo. B. Blake, Esq. and Capt. Chester, two passengers, went ashore at Truro, procured horses and rode to Plymouth, where they pro cured an Express Engine, which brought them to Boston on Sunday at half past 4 P.M. Upon the arrival of the news of the position of the Cnmbria, at Boston, efforts were immediately made to send assistance to lier. The steam tow boat Robert B. Forbes commenced "firing up" at 5ro'clock, nnd left for Truro at about 7. It was ex pected that she would reach the Cambria at about eleven o'clock Sunday night. The General Lincoln was ulso despatched for Truro early in the evening. An express was sent immediately to Hingham to direct the steamer Mayflower to proceed to the scene of the disaster, n?d render such assistance as might be necessary. We. understand that in the two first named t>outs a very large force oi seamen was sent down, that there might bo no lack of manual strength. With these strenuous and prompt exertions, we trust the Cambria may be got off the beach with out loss and without delay. This news is much more important than we had any reason to expect by the present steamer* The last message of Mr. Polk to CongreM, on the Oregon question, was considered pacific. The groat event is the attempt to assassinate (xMiis Philippe, and the terrible excitement in Franc It is generally beligsved that his assassi nation would have been the signal for a new re volution in France, and the establishment of a republic. Then; is great excitement in England on the Irish Coercion, and tha English Corn bills. If tho first is passed, the other will be defeated, and Sir Robert Peel will be compelled to retire from the Ministry. A terriblo time is then expected, all over Great Britain. Matters in Ireland were, growing worse and worse. The accounts of t be famine in that coun try are truly deplorable. Narvaez had been driven out of Spain, in con sequence of some disagreement between him and Christina, to the general joy of the people. Nothing later from India. Ix>rd Brougham had been cutting a figure at Paris. The Hibernia arrived <Jut on the 14th. The packet ship Montrzumn left on the Thurs day previous for New York, with thirty pa*sen gers. A wreck has been seen off Shoreham. In commercial affairs, we note an advance in the. price of co?ton. Th?? Hibemie, which arrived out on the 14th, carried indisputable news of the shortness of the cotton crop, and an advance ot id to a id had been obtained. Money was still I scarce, tno best of paper only being discounted nt the regul.tr sales. The. corn trade had slightly im proved, and there was some stir in the iron mar ket. but business of abnost every kind continued to feel the deadening effects of tlie present stag nation. I Sir Robert Peel had taken an opportunity, in I the House, to claim credit for government lor hav ing ordered a supply of Indian com to meet the necessities of the starving people in Ireland sod Engl nnd. He Mid jthat nit/only regret was that government had not ordered more, but it had been deterred by its unwillingnes* to interfere with the regular couxw ot business. 8peculation wag going on as to the fate of the ! tarin bill in the House of Lords. Lord Essex, > hitherto known as a grout protectionist, had de clared for free trade and the measures of the Ministry. Lord Stanley, who o^iiros to be Pre mier, was to load the opi>osiiiou in the upper i Bouse. Trade in the manufacturing districts had slight- ! ly improved, but prices were without change. A number of cargoes of Indian corn had arriv ed ut Dublin within a few days, and every baker bad " Indian meal bread" for sale, and it was in great demand. There had been he?vy Hoods in England, causing some damage. Lathan & Co., bankers, of Dover, have failed. Liabilities, ?100,000 ; dividend, 15s. to the pound. The peace societies throughout the country were making great movements in favor of maintaining friendly relations with the United States. Miss Cushnmn's success aiul good fortune con inue to be spokou of in the Kugush papers. The King of Prussia is desirous to remodel the Zollverein treaty. Despatches from Tahiti were not very favorable to the French. The natives and Queen Poniare still held possession of the Ulterior, and the French were confined to a small portion of the shore, where they were protected by entrenchments. Letters from Constantinople state that the Ab bazes, an independent power of Circ&ssia, had rejocted the offers of reconciliation of Russia, and had declared for Shiek Schamyl. The printing establishment of Stevenson & Co., Edinburgh, which was also that of the University, has been destroyed by fire. The loss is immense, as the establishment was celebrated for its cha racters of all the Asiatic tongues, particularly the Chinese. Pakuambrtabt.?The House of Commons met after the Easter recess, on the evening of Friday, when the coercion bill again came up. Nothing of interest resulted. A bill has been introduced into Parliament to allow the unchartered railway companies to dis solve and wind up. A bill was brought into the House of Commons to enable railroad companies which had not got their charters to dissolve and divide their money. Lord Stanley heads the opposition to Peel, and is fighting hard for the premiership. (From tho London Standard, March IB.) In order to convey an idea of the interest excit ed for this vessel's arrival, we may mention that the New York papers had expresses from Halifax to Now York at an expense of three thousand dol lars. It wm the first attempt ever made to run the news overland from this the first port at which tho steamer touches. The Cambria did not beat the expresses, and was prevented being the he rald into Boston of the intelligence ?he had con veyod across the Atlantic. Instantly on the Cambria's dispatches beinir landed at "Boston, expresses were dispatched in all directions, and it will soarcely be credited inEng land, thnt the news from England was conveyed from Boston to New York,a distauce of 250 miles. 1 in seven hours 25 minutes. This was achieved by the Neic York Htrald-^&nd we notice that most of the papers arc honest in according to it the merit of having thus performed the most rapid express ever attempted in America. This express was entirely irrespective of that run by the other papers from Halifax. The Halifax express passed through Boston in advance of the Boston express, but the latter was the victor into New York. Kbwspapkk Puffery?Yimsr vs. tub Oi.d Country.?What a wretchedly poor figure the newspaper puffery of this country cuts when com j pared with that of our lively Brother Jonathan.? The Mrs. Caudle of Lord street, when she sits down to dilate upon her excessive wisdom and un paralleled circulation, is but a puny driveller com pared with the Mrs. Caudles of the other conti nent. when they assume the boastfnl vein. James Gordon Bennett beats poor Mercury at his favorite weapons.

Take the best bit of boasting our con temporary ever perpetrated?take one of his " pn per and a half for sixpenny" brags ; and see how immeasurably Bennett leaves him behind in the following racy bit of bombast:?" This unprece dented express was arranged and run throughout bv Mr. L. Bigelow. of the Boston, Fitchburg and Montreal Express line. It was the fastest express ever run in the country, and cannot be beaten by any Live Yankee. The whole running time be tween the two cities, was seven hours and five minutes?distance two hundred and fifty miles." There is actually poetry in the description. The feat of the New Yorker " cannot be beaten by any live Yankeo"?thereby suggesting the ide that, if necessary, he could employ the disembodied spi rits of dead Yankees in carrying his expressos.? Our contemporary at home isprosaic even in the inventive announcements which he makes of his extraordinary successes.?London Standard. England and the United State*?The Ore The Timtt says, the accounts from the United States by the Hibernia, to the beginning of April, have excited a good deal of attention. The mes sage of Mr. Polk to Congress is not considered war like. Indeed, some of the public writers profess to see the best guaranty for the continuance of peace, in the expense to whicty the country will be put by arming for a coniliot. Seventy millions of dollars bestowed upon putting the army and navy on a footing for commencing the emergency of the rase, would induce every man who contri buted his quota to that astonishing sum to inquire into its necessity. The following extracts from an article in the London Timet, of the 18th ult., show that that paper does not look ujK>n the line of 49? even as a certain line of agreement, and gives also the latest opinion which wo find on this questions? * * * In the whole course of these negotia tions, that which has changed most completely, is the claim set up by the Americans. In 1818 and 1826, the territory in dispute wni expressly ussert ed and clearly understood, to be comprised be tween the 42<f and 49th degrees of latitude. As for the more northern tract between 49 and 54 40, we are not nware that the paramount claims of Britain to that part of it, were then called in question. The proposals for partition ranged l>etween the mouth of the Columbia and the 49th degree, but|not lieyond; and the American pleni potentiaries unsuccessfully claimed the whole o 1 that region, but no more. Since that time, and in their moro recent discussions, they have raised their demands; they have laid claim to tne whole country; and then, as if it were the farthest limits their former offer, the venr same which they be fore rejected. ? ? ? They have raised a claim to the whole of Oregon, not with any expectation of acquiring the entire province, but in order to reconcile us to terms we have before declared to be inadmissible. But the truth is, that the bare 49th parallel, is to all intents and purposes, the same thing that it was twenty years ago. We intimated an opinion some time ago, that the 49th parallel ought conveniently to serve as the basis of nn arrangement; but it is clear that such a proposal must lie accompanied with more extensive conditions than those heretofore annex ed to it by the Americans. It must leave the whole of Van Oouver's Island, the navigation and harbor of the Straits of Fuca, the free use of the Columbia and its northern branches down to the sea, and an indemnity or compensation to the Hudson's Bay Company for the posts they would be called upon to surrender, we do not pretend to point out nil the stipulations which it would be the part of a prudent ond just policy to require ?? an equivalent for a concession so much below our original claims, and, as we firmly believe, our just rights. But the cession of the vacant soil might be politic and endurable, provided the private rights already long acquired ami enjoyed by British sub jects were duly respected; and they must, lie yond all question, be protected by the ultimatum of England. Between these two proposals lies the question of peace and war?narrowed as these controver sies always are to a small issue ; but, neverthe less, broad enough to swallow up the peace of the world. The moderate members of the Senate make the 49th parallel their " fighting line." Pre sident Polk is evidently more inclined to lean to the side of resistance than of concession ; and on our side we can roally discover no motive of rea son or argument to justify us in any farther de parture from the position assumed long ago by the British Governmerit, and confirmed by tho emphatic declarations of the Ministers ol the Crown.

I am, &c. (Signed) Aberdeen. The Oregon question continues to be a fruitful source cf discussion with the British journals.?? The speech of Mr. Webster, and the propriety ol settling the dispute upon the basis of 49, were much commented on. The London Timtt, by some called the organ of Lord Aberdeen, though it is more orobably the mouth piece of tlio Hud son's Bay Company?is as bitter as ever in derid ing and opposing the American title north ot Co lumbia river, and states tlutl latitude 49 was as far as the original claim of the United States extend ed, and that line had never been conceded by the British statesmen. If conceded now, the Timet claims the freedom of the Columbiu, the whole of Va ncouver's Island, and the Straits of Fuca, with full indemnity to the Hudson Bay Company for resigning their jiosts. .

None Hut statesmen know properly what war is, or can re alize to their own minds its horrors, and the inju rious legacies which it bequeaths to communities, without practically witnessing thern. The pre fwntgeneration have been born and brought up in peace. To them war is but a tradition?a thinir of which their fathers have spoken to them by their firesides just as thev might speak of any re mote event of history. It is one thing, however, to hear thus of the struggle of nations, and ano ther, totally different to behold them raging in all their fury. We are friends of peace, and confess it the more read.ly, in that we should be omoim the ,most strenuous advocates of war were it aalled for by Uie honor and welfare of the country But in the actual relations subsisting between us and tilities.

A glance at the general result of the recent election will discover to you that the complexion of this 8tale Convention will be varied. There will not be a majority of any grade of partizans, and this fact should be an oc casion of the most lively satisfaction to patriots. It will be seen that no measures or propositions exclusively of a parti/an nature can be carried in such a body; a noble spirit of kindness and of generous and manly compro mise will, necessarily, animate these men. The consti tution of the United States was adopted under cironm stances of like character. No particular faction waa in vested with the balance of power, as it is termed, and hence a spirit of harmony and concession was indispen sible to ensure the perfection of the policy proposed to be pursued. Radicalism was defeated, and a safe conser vatism distinguished their deliberations, and their conclusions. This Convention will be composed of partizans called radicals, conservatives, whigs, anti-renters, and others. As no faction has a clear majori ty, so the power and the dictation will bo reposed in tha whole, and so if any thing be accomplished, unity and harmony amoDg these men must be secured. I see that the succession to the Presidency it frequent ly alluded to in connection with "Silas Wright Wright is a man. Probably the name of this man it not to prom inent in tho history of the Union as Scott or Calhoun, or may be Buchauaii, or Clay or Webster. But this it not to be attributed to the superior excellence of these men; it is the result of association; it is to be attributed to tha omnipotent force of events, similar to those which called Louis Phillippe from exile; which ostracised Napoleon; which immortalized Metternich; which execrated Crom well; and finally, which organized creation Itself.? There it a sentiment in the heart of Silas Wright which makei him truly great There are few great men in America, and all the tcience of intellectual horticulture should be expended upon these few, eo that they may be preserved for national crises and strategy.? The teveral billt framed by Mr. Tilden, taid to be some what inhibitory of the legal liberties of landlords, were read a third Ume in the House to-day, and will probably past on Monday. One of these bills it entitled " Aa act to abolith distress for rent;" another, " An act in relation to devises and descents;" and a third, " An act to equal ise taxation." The righteousness, and excellence, and probity of the first named bill, cannot be questioned; his a good and expedient thHJI and, as I have often intima ted, would expunge a bigotted and intolerant system of oppression from our statutes. Bat the Senate will not pass the bill. The bills last nsmcd are puerile, impotent, effeminate nnd inefficient They do not even approach the vitality of this hydra-fanged curse, and this barbaric feudalism. Now, I explicitly declare that the relations between tha Patroon and his tenantry, are strictly feudal, and I might proceed to prove, if I had leisure, that thoy are the very reflex and counterpart of the feudalism of the tenth cen tury. But these hills are not of the smallest coneeaueitce Indeed, all hope of legislative interposition, on bsaalf of the tenantry, it given up, and the convention is re^rdsd at the forlorn resource of the tenanta.

This is verv unpleasant to the citizens, and to all else. Some remedy for this ne glect should be had. Alsant, May S, 1840. TKt Bill t? Bank fiiwi. I have fallen into an error of a provoking character ; simply the result of recklessness in my correspondence It is in relation to the bill mentioned In my letter in tha JitraU of Saturday.

The old law was passed by a mtjo Hty vote, when the vote should have been two-thirds' The object in taking un the bill was to past it by a two" third vote, else it would be unconstitutional. I have nothing highly interesting to communicate to day. I am told that Mr. Hall's militia bill would not be acted upon, and that (fen.
