NEW YORK HERALD. NEW YORK, SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 30, 1846. . *?? SX9HL7 IUPCP.TAITT FROM EUROPE. AtlUVAL or THI GREAT BRITAIN. POUfl DAYS LATER. irriTil ii Europe ?f the Kim Pam|t of the OREGON NOTICE BESOLCTN.U THEIR FAVORABLE KVTBOT Of ENGLAND. THE COTTON HARKKT, The monster steamer, Grant Britain, waa tele graphed at 8 o'clock yesterday morning, in the nastern offing. She wu toon afterwards boarded by the famous steamer Jaoob Ik-U, Capt. Hazard, and her news brought to the city. The Great Britain sailed from Liverpool on (lie 9th inst. We have received papers nnd letters to that rlate. The news is highly favorable. The passage of the Oregon notice resolutions, in the Senate, had reached England, and had pro duced a very favorable effect. The London money market was at first slightly affected by the news. There had been an improvement in the cotton market. The grain markets were somewhat active. The war on the corn laws was going on in Par liament. The produce market exhibits little variation from that of last week. The price of sugar is steadily increasing, and the accounts of the defi ciency of the last West India crop has a tendency to advance prices. The proceedings in Parliament, which point to a speedy release of the grain and flour in bond, at the low rate of duty, have given more animation t* those articles, which are more inquired for, and necessarily of greater value. The share market in all the large townsuina buoyant state. The bulk of the transactions have been in the old and legitimate lines, to buy in which a large ready-money capital is necessary. Still there has been something doing in scrip, con tingent upon the winding up of the various schemes which have been unable to struggle through their difficulties. Smith O'Brien, member of Parliament, con tinued in bondage. Annexed are the details of the news;? Ma. Wkbstkk i.i England.?The London Timtt of the 7th inst., contains an article on the recent oharges made against Mr. Webster, by Mr. In gersoll, in the House of Representatives,at Wash ington. It copies an editorial article and corres pondence at length, that appeared in the New York Herald of April 12th, in relation to those un fortunate charges, and takes the same position that we then took on the subject. The Timet will not believe, except ou the production of irrefra gable proofs, that Mr. Webster is guilty of the crime oharged upon him, and vehemently sus pects tbe accusers of that gentleman of a design to destroy, by calumny, his political influence and reputation. It says that the charges, if brought home to Mr. Webster, must bring his po litical career to an ignominious end, but enter tains the belief that ne will be able to disprove them, and to bring his enemies to shame. Mr. Owen, the well-known philanthropist, who arrived recently from the United States, has since his arrival had a long interview with the Earl of Aberdeen, concerning, we believe, the affairs of Oregon. Whether Mr. Owen was charged with any quasi-official representation, in reference to the question, does not appear, but it is believed to be not improbable. One of his sons is member of Congress tfoi the State of Indiana. Mr. Owen, it is said, returns to the United States at the end of this week .?London paper. There are 400,000 barrels of American flour under lock at Liverpool. Tbe emigrants from England to the BriUsh ?olonies amount, on an average, to 40,000 annual '7 It is expected that 80,000 persona will emigrate from Germany during the present season. Louis Philippe is about to proceed to Dreux, to superintend the construction of a grand sepulchral chapel for the reigning dynasty. Another instalment of the Chinese ransom has arrived at the Royal mint. The value is upward* of half a million sterling. The population of the New Zealand Company's settlements in that island is estimated at upwards of9,000 souls, suid in the northern or government colouies at about 3,600 souls. It is proposed to erect a monument to Kriloy, a poet and fabulist,?one of the most celebrated of the Russian literati. He died about a year and a-haii" ago. In the years 1835-39, there were 815 murders, und in the years 1840-44, there were 347, being nn increase often per cent, while the increase of the population would account for but six per cent. Letters from Naples state that overtures have been made by the German Zollverein for a treaty of commerce with that government. The trade of Germany with Naples is next in importance to that of England. Switzerland is about to follow the example of trade exposition becoming so general in Europe; un exhibition of the products of Helvetic industry being announced to take place at Zurich in August next, the first in that country. The repeal of the duty on glass, which led to the employment of this substance for pipes for the conveyance of water, has been succeeded by its use for milk pans, which are not only much more easily cleaned than metal, but may actually be soalued without any fear ol fracture. It is calculated that 39,000 persons will have emigrated from Ireland in the present year.? Many of them are known to have considerable sums of money; but, at only ?30 a-head, they will withdraw from the small capital of this impov erished country no less an amount than ?000,000. A letter from Bremen of the 35th ult. announces the arrival there ol several Protectant ministers from America, on their way to London, to attend the general union, which is to take place in August. They are about to travel in Germany, in order to study the state of religion in the country, establish an intimate intercourse between the Lutheran Church in Germany and the same Church in America* Tax Cap*?Cape Good ol Hope papers to the 12th of March have arrived. Meetings had been held at several of the towns and for further pro tection against the Caffre tribes. The " peace movement," in Great Britain, con cerning which so many curious documents were published some time ago, is proceeding with the utmost vigour, and in various parts of the coun try are to oe found numerous bodies resolved to prevent all ohanoes ol collision with the United States, if there is any force in that system of "addresses" which has been recently contrived.? An addrese has just been sent to the citizens of Gincinnati, and of the United States generally, by the inhabitants ? X Kxeter, who have signed to the number of 1,000. The women of Exeter wish ed to join in this address, but it seems there was no precedent for uniting their names with those of men. They therefore resolved to have an address of their own, and have accordingly got up one to the "women of Philadelphia," to which tney have subscribed no lewthan 1,000 names. The number includes persons of the most varied mnk in society. A*rvau< from New Yo?k.?In our last publi cation we announced that the packet ship John R. Skiddy, Capt. Luce, and the Ashburton, Capt. White, were otf the port on the 4th inst. Both of these splendid ship* arrived in port on the 5th inst. The John R. 8kiddy reached first, and her papers being four dayi later than thoee brought by the Ashburton, were forwarded to London through ths private express of Messrt. Wdrner and .Smith, and the newt which they con tained published in all the metropolitan morning journal* ol die following day. We mutt not omit to mention that the Havre packet* have again beat en some of those trading to Liverpool. One of pi t r bringing adviciM from New York to the Irtth nit., incluMve, has supplied the London press with paper* up to that date. in which wm the termination of the debate and division in the Smut* on Ui?* Oregon resolution. It appears that the excellent trip* of the Havre packets are to be attributed to the n|?ht freight* which they carry, whilst those to Liverpool are bringing enormous cargoes The New York, Capt. Cropper, was telegraphed yesterday, as being otf Holyhead, but, uii to the tune we went to press, had not arrived ? IVUmer'$ Timtt, May 9. Th?

Recent accounts from C>de?*n state that it ha* crossed die Russian bound ary, and ha* appeared at TiHis, taking a course northward between the Caspian and Black Seas; whde, according to the latest intelligence from Riga, it has broken tW at (Hirenburg >B the I'ralian mining district, crossed the Volga, and nppeun-d on the Kuropean snl?? at Kasan, about 1,300 miles fro>n St. Petersburgh. If these ac counts are to be trusted, the disease has taken a somewhat irregular course in a direction west by north; arid it do*** not appear to have followed the bank* ofgreat^nvers as in the former irruption of I^KJO The "disease which reached Kngiand in 1H3I. prevailed in Persia for seven years, from i<a to 1H3U. It appeared at Orenburg for the first tune in IH23; and was confined to this quarter for a period of live years. It re-appeared ut Oren burg in 1129, and its prevalence and fatality in this province were so great, that upwards of one tenth part of the inhabitants were seized with it, and one-lburth of those who attacked died. It reached St. Petersburgh in July, 1H31, and Kng land on Uie 26th of October of that year. At Tiflia, where it is again reported to have broken out, the mortality from the former epidemic was so great, that three-fourths of those who were attacked perished. We shall take care to report any further information which may reach us respecting the progress of the malady.?Mtdical GaztUt. Spots.?'The triangular group of large spots which returned to the sun's eastern limb aoout twelve days ago, after considerable change of form while crossing the tun's disc, disappeared on Wednesday from his western limb, and the two large spots which followed them had increas ed to four, and nre now near the same limb; also, the very large group of spot* which disappeared about twelve (lays apo, returned yesterday to the sun's eastern limb, but considerably modified in I form during their absence, and promise to return more than once before they totally disappear.? I Glasgow Examinrr. Th? Or?(M (^nrotloK In Bn|huMl. [From Wlliiin'? Timi t, Mmy 9.] Yesterday, the importuu: intelligence cnme to hand tliat tue Senate, ?'tor tune weeks' discussion, had coma to a division 011 tiie Oregon notice. The subject is too comprehensive in its feature*, too pregnant in its consequences, as regards the peace of the world, not toencite the most marked atten tion ; and, accordingly, the daily papers have " leaders' on it, in winch the present and future bearings of this new move are clearly and gra phically pointed out. Our American readers will be struck with the cool and dignified tone which pervades these articles. As pieces of composition, they will command attention?as expositions of peace,respect. The notice is not viewed in a belli gerent spirit; and it will not be the fault of the i>eople on this side of the water, if it should sub sequently partake of that jaundiced ingredient. One of the blessings of a free press is, that every great public question is argued and put in so many shapes, that the popular mind is imperceptibly led te appreciate it* merits, and maae acquainted with all its difficulties. Public opinion is thus ripe when the time for action has arrived; and no statesman can calculate upon that support, which it as necessary to his official existence as the air is to his corporeal vitality, without basing his mea sures on a just and comprehensive policy.? Viewed in this light, Mr. Polk's allusion, in his inaugural address, to the Oregon, will do good. The manner in which he took up the question, directed the attention not only of tne two govern ments most immediately interested, but of the whole world to its importance ; and some pro gross has been already made, and is making, towards a pacific solution.! Six months ago fears of a rupture with the United States were general. Now they have dis appeared. Fot the least commot'on was visible yesterday, when it became known that the Sen ate had passed the resolution for giving the notice, and, as we have intimated in another column, it had no visible effect on the cotton or any other market. This is most gratifying. Wo are now in the second act of the Oregon drama, under Mr. Polk's management?may the concluding one be as satisfactory and pacific ! i We have inserted below the leading article in the Timti of yesterday on the subject, to which those who tajfe an interest in the theme will direct their attention. [From the London Timet, Msy 8 ] The resolutions authorizing the President of the United States to give notice lor the termination of the Oregon Convention of 1H27, have now, as we announced yesterday, received the sanction of the Senate by a majority of 40 to 14 votes. Nine weeks of continuous debate may be suppos<*d to have exhausted the most sturdy (towers of Parlia mentary endurance ; and, from the Senators of Massachusetts to the newly arrived representative of the State of Texas, not a member of the sedate assembly soems to have let this important topic pass in silence. The doubts and difficulties which are commonly confined to a Cabinet on questions of this nature have here been extended to a spe cies of popular assembly, and aggravated by pub licity and party spirit. But the result has been the same as if the resolutions had been introduced by Mr. Polk; and pablic opinion throughout the Union has been informed and invigorated by the debate In spite of the length of time during which we have contemplated the approach of tnis notice ; the clear certainty of the result of the discussion the unanimity which we may be said to have ar rived at in both countries as to the expediency and necessity of putting an end to the doubtful condition of the question?and the impatience with which we desired that this preliminary step should be taken, in order that the definitive nego tiation might be promptly resumed, it cannot be doubted that the solemn act of the American Government, which is about to assign a term to one of the most important territorial conventions existing between Great Britain and the United States, must be considerable, and may become a momentous event. In America the debates on this subject have almost exclusively mo nopolized the time of the Legislature and the attention of the public since the commence ment of the session of Congress. In this country Parliament and the nation have been content to wait the course of events, and to leave untouclied by premature controversy one of the most im portant functions of the Executive Government, ( and one of the highest prerogatives ot the Crown. But, in spite of the excessive discussion to which the Oregon territory has given rise on the other side of the Atlantic, anu the extreme reserve which has hitherto been maintained on this, there is at bottom the same deep and earnest hope in both countries that this question will be amicably settled, and we trust there i? an equal resolution in the Government' of both '??"?untries to make | every exertion, consistent witl Uieir true interests and honor to terminate the controversy. It is in this spirit that we are willing t? reeeive the nouce for the termination of the exiting convention.? In this spirit, and with mi express recommend wion to that effect, the n solutions have been framed and carried through in both houses . of Congress; and in the same spirit we do not doubt that the negotiation will be forthwith renewed. The alternative is now distinctly indi cated. The utmost term to which the peace of the world can be prolonged is one twelvemonth, if in deed circumstances do not bring about a much earlier rupture, unless the partition of the Oregon territory be finally settled within that period.? Never was a heavier responsibility incurred by public men ; never was a graver question poised in the balance of Providence, The provisional i agreement under which our pacific relations with the U. States have subsisted for 80 years, is to be superseded by a final definition of our respective rignts upon the north-western coast of America, or to be succeeded by war. The vessel is already loosened from the moorings at which she lay in pence. The convention of joint occupancy is virtually ended : and the destinies of these two grant nations?it, indeed, they can be called twain, ! which have so great a name, a language, and a freedom in common with each other?are expos ; ed to the fluctuations of adverse and conflicting | claims. 1 tit- emergency is, doubtless, a most se rious one ; but na| f ily tor the honor of this coun try, it isaccompanieuby none of diose feelings of excitement amongst ourselves w ik Ii have so often perplexed the affairs of the world, an . it will be met with die deliberate energy of men as.uu scious of our duties as of our strength. The form in which the resolution has been ulti * mately adopted by the Senate of the United States is extremely dignified and becoming, and tn this respect it may be regarded as a triumph of the moderate party over the violent and excessive pre I tensions of die gentlemen who act with Mr. Al ! len. In die final division which took place, 22 votes out of 40 belonged to the whig party ; whilst only two whigs voted widi the extreme party against the form in which it was proposed that the notice should be given. So that, although the division had nothing of a party character, the adhesion of the whigs secured that modelation of language for which it is remarkable. It seems that, according to the forms of Congress, die House of Representatives must concur in the resolution as amended by the Senate, and for diis purpose it will undergo some further debate in the lower house. As the notice stands in Mr. Crittenden's motion, there is not an expression in the preamble with which we do not cordially concur; and it orms a striking contrast to the peremptory and unqualified expressions used by Mr. Polk in his official oommunioations. In fact, when the Sen ate of the United States speaks of the " evil conse quences of the divided allegiance of an American 1 and British population, and of die oonfusion and conflict of national jurisdiction" in Oregon, they substantially recognize that principle of division which Mr. Polk lias hitherto denied, and they impose upon him the prosecution of a negotia ? tion which he has endeavored to render impos 1 sible. Thus far, then, and in more respects than one, the American notice materially improves the pros ? pect of a speedy setdement. It recomizes, in ! general terms, the basis upon which alone such a settlement can be attempted, and, by putting an end to the period of joint occupancy, it prepares us to maintain to the fullest extent the rights we derive from present occupation. Whatever be tfie fate of the provisional treaties, we presume that no one will contest that the rights and inter ests which have grown up by their protection and authority are sacred, both under the letter of those treaties, and under the original rights to which we now revert in all their force. Our position as claimants upon an equal footing with the United States for the partition of die whole territory in dispute is rather strengthened than weakened by the abrogation of the treaty, and wo cannot doubt that the ministers of the crown will be ready, upon the receipt of the notice,firmly and explicitly to declare to the Cabinet of Washington what those rights are which they have long been " re solved and prepared to maintain." Every inci dent which has occurred in the course of those dis cussions has more and more fully convinced us tfiat whilst a compromise is necessary, and indeed, our own statement of our qjpiims suggests a divi !sion, no surrender of those claims can be attempt ed. We are not conscious of having advanced any argument, or made any assertion, which is not greatly within the strictest limits to which British rights might have been carried; and below ; the line which has been traced for the policy of this country lies nodiing but insecurity and disgrace. To that position we therefore adhere; we have no doubt that the Ministers of the Crown will adhere to it no less firmly, confident that in the mainten ance of just rights, as well as in securing peace, they are supported by the unanimous resolution of the people of England. [From the Liverpool Msil, May 9.) The crisis has arrived! The Senate of the ; United S!ates have, by a majority of forty to four teen, resolved that the President he authorised to intimate to the British government that the treaty 1827, relative to the Oregon territory, shall be dis solved and rendered null and void at the expira tion of twelve months from die present time. Be fore this resolution was adopted,the President was requested to state whether he had received any proposition from this government of a late date, andhe stated in reply that all correspondence haa ceased, without any attempt to renew it, on the 4th of February last. It will be recollected that her Majesty's minis ters, and both Houses of Parliament, have been singularly silent, during the whole of die present session, in reference to these transatlantic pro ceedings. Even when the negociations had termi nated somewhat abruptly, die same extraordinary | reserve was maintained. We shall now see, per haps, what measures are in contemplation to meet | the difficulties created by American legislation.? The President has in plain terms asserted the '? rightful claim of the United States to the whole ! Oregon territory; and die Senate and House of ' Representatives have sanctioned this claim by I their votes. The next step, on the part of these I republicans, will be to take possession?and dien, what will England do 1 We are in confident expectation that before many days this important subject will occupy and engross the attention of Parliament. Orrtn Nltam H?vl|pttl??. [Krotn the London Herald, May 7.] We art- enabled to make an announce, inent regarding the conveyance of maila by steam between this country and America, which will be hailed with gratification by the whole community. The Government have entered into a further contract with the British and North American Royal Mail Company, the effect of which is to secure a weekly communica tion by steain between Liverpool and the United States of America. A steamer of great power and size will be despatched direct from Liverpool to New York every alternate Saturday during eight months of the year. These trips are to be perform ed as additional voyages, and irrespective of the (brtnighdy voyages to Halifax arid Boston ; us tins latter service will continue just as at present, with the alteration of sailing from Liverpool as well as from Boston always on Saturdays instead of a fixed day of the month as at present. The steamers to New York will also take their depart ures always on Saturday. By this arrangement there will be a steamer from Liverpool to Ameri ca every Saturday, and from the American side also every Saturday, the only difference being that Boston and New York will alternately be the ports of departure. At present w^re not able to state the precise time wnen these weekly sailings will commence, but no doubt we may look for the al teration to come into play as soon as the required number of ship* can t>e got ready to undertake such a vast service. This bridging of the Atlantic by steam is one of the wisest and best undertakings of the govern ment. The mercantile world will reap immense advantages from it; and who can estimate its im portance to the multitudes emigrating, and having connections in the western world 1 In thus taking this important movement in ocean steaming, the government have anticipated the wishes of the merchants of Oreat Britain and America. A stir was about being made earnestly to press this mat ter on the government and it is a subject of greater congratulation that it is voluntarily done, and that the duty of carrying out the mighty enterprise has devolved on the pardes who, from the very first, have shown themselves equal to the neces sities of the case. The past doings of the British and North Amenean Royal Mad Company are a sure guaranty that any extra ssrvtoe will be ear ried out in the most complete and effective man ner. Iwtosi Ths accounts1 from various parts of Ireland, as to the wants of the people, are painfully appa rent. One day last wees *|X*7 people were ad mrtted into the poor-hnusr at Pungarvon. AtTu am the destitution is described as being fearfully on the increase. VHSNi On the 5th inst., the anniversary of the death of Napoleon, masses and funeral services were oel ebrated in the different churches of Paris, and particularly in the chapel of St. Louis, at the Inva fides. The veterans of the empire, and other per sons sull de\<>ted to hi* memory,visited the Column at the Place Vendome, and deposited on its base, crow. ? of immorteUf. Countess Demidoff, daugh ter of Jarome Bonaparte, assisted at the service performed ?n ths Chapel of 'he Invalid**. Tne French fund* I ell towards the closs of busi ness on the Bourse on Wednesday, owing to re ports that Oporto (Portugal) wss in full insurrec tion, and that unfavorable utelligence had arrived from America. M. l'iret, the Belgian Envoy to the United States had arrived at Havre, toetnbsrk lor Washington. He ufes said to be the bearer of the ratification of the treaty of commerce and navigation, concluded between Belgium and the Uuitcd Mates. The latest dates from Bayonne, are to the Mth of April. The insurrection in Onllein ? at an end A dee patch containing this intelligence has been receiv ed from General Concha by ths Captain General of Burgos, who has forwarded it to Bayonnr by extraordinary express. General Concha arrived atOrense on 18th in?t., where he remained till die 23d tor the purpose of concentrating his forces. On that day lie left for Santiago at the liead ofSOOO men, having given or ders to General Blazer to make a simultaneous at tack on Vigo. On the following day Concha presented himself before Santiago, which was defended by the whoio ol the insurgent forces under Solis. Concha attacked the town from the heights of Cacherra, and succeeded, after an obstinate re sistance, in compelling the town, and the whole of its defenders, to surrender at discretion. The loss of the victors it estimated at about 100 killed and wounded. General Narvoez is still here, and the news of the termination of the Galician insurrection is considered likely to have an unfavorable effect with regard to his desire to return to Madrid.? Had tbe result been otherwise, it is thought that the government would have been forced, at any sacrifice, to consent to his recall. Germany. The Augsburg Gazette fof the 2nd inst., an nounces that disturbances had taken place in that city on the previous evening, in consequence of the increase in the duty on beer. The delegates of the Zollvorein are to meet shortly at Berlin to continue the negotiations com menced at Carlsruhe. The question will be dis cussed in this conference, whether to favor the importation direct of raw cotton from the United States, it will be requisite to augment the import duty on English twists ; they will also take into consideration the propositions made to the Zoll verein tending to facilitate the means of a direct tommerce with the transatlantic States. As re gards either question, the Prussian government is decidedly in favor of a statu quo, not to admit of any change in the tariff of the Zollverein. The King of Bavaria has prohibited his subjects from attending the university of Leipsig until further orders. The King of Bavaria has by a royal decree, pro longed the sitting of the assembly of the States from the 30th ult. to the 15th of May, in the hope ' that by the latter day all its labors will be ter minated. On the 27th ult., the second chamber heard the report of Baron de Gumppenberg, on the motion for giving to Jews the same civil and political rights as Christians. The report is favor able to the motion. The news from Austrian Galicia states that the province is quiet. There were rumors of an at tempt at a rising near Glodno, but the report seems to have been ill-founded. The town of Cracow is to pay (according to the Frankfort Poit-Amt-Gazette) tne annual sum of two millions florins, for the maintenance of the government, which, considering its revenue, does not exceed one million and a half, is rather a diffi cult task. They have likewise to provide for the troops. The future is anything but promising, as there are no prospects for the Harvest. It has been asserted that at the late conferences at Berlin between the delegates of Russia, Austria and Prussia, on the affairs of Poland, especially relative to the republic of Cracow, that there was question of effacing from the number of independ ent states the four Tree towns of the German con federation. Hamburgh and Lubeck were to fall to Prussia. Bremen to Hanover. Franckfort to the Grand Duchy of Hesse or to Bavaria, whilst the free town of Cracow was to be incorporated with Austrian Gallicia; the rest of the territory with Poland, that is, with Russia. The Bavarian code of laws is to be shortly re formed ; in one of the late sittings of the Chamber, the Minister of Justice announced that the plan of die new code would be shortly submitted to their consideration, and^jhat one of its principal fea tures would be plefiaings in publie. The General Gazette of Prmtia publishes a des patch of the American minister at Berlin, dated at Washington, in which that diplomatist, on the oc casion or the new line of steamers, which is to be established between New York and Bremen, ex presses his opinion upon the grand natural and ar tificial routes between the old and new world. The distinguished publicist attaches special im portance to cutting through the isthmus of Suez and Panama; and considers the period to have nearly arrived when these gigantic enterprises will be realized. These two canals will revolu tionize the commerce of the world, and naturally lead to a change in the existing lines of steam na vigation. Mr. Wheaton would have a line imme diately established between the United States and. the Eas tlndies.and he recommends the Postmas ter General of the United States to organize a ser vice which, touching alternately at the Isle of Wight, Havre, Anvers, Bremen and Hamburg, should communicate with the East India line.

Taglioni, banny Kemblc, Fanny Ellsler, Miss Stevens, (now Dowager Countess of Essex,) Miss Sheriff, ard many others, have accumulated large fortunes, by their profession. We believe the richest actress on the stage at present is Madame Celeste, who, independent of possessing a hand some revenue, the produce or her past and pre sent exertions, has just taken possession (after much litigation) of ner late husband's property, which is said to amount to upwa>ds of ?10,000. Madame Vestris and her husband, Mr. Charles Mathews, have been playing at Liverpool, where they are succeeded by Buckstone, and Mrs. Fitz witliam. The Drury-lane Theatrical Fund Dinner took place on the evening of 4th inst. The Duke of Cambridge presided.

This laay is an English woman, the sister of our bass singer, Mr. Seguin, who is now in America. On the nl>ovr occasion she appeared in the character of Norma, and was received by the most crowded and brilliant audience of the season with extraor dinary marks of enthusiasm. The journalist speaks with admiration of her powers as a singer and an actress, and describes her as one of tne greatest ornaments of the Italian stage. Hudson Kirby, was playing at the Royal A mphi theatre. The Ethiopian minstrels continued favorites, as is testified by the plaudits with which they are received. A mi. rim Theatm-Royai..?"Green Bushes," ndiuirably played, has been the principal feature of attraction at this theatre during the week, Celeste personating the principal character.

Ca*ii.u> Sivori?Tub Modbr* Paoamuu.?This greet performer on (tie violin, of whom it ia naiil, [iy thiMM* who have heard turn, that he is the me tempsychosis of Pagaruui, in other words, that Pagamm hiinaelf has come to lUe again, and ap- 1 pea red in the body of Camillo Sivori, born at Genoa, ol highly Rttmlsblc parentage. He was ?can dy 18 months old belore he gave evidence of Uie musical |>ower for which he has become so famous. Can this l?e wondered at, when, as we learn, hi* mother beuiu pregnant with this child attended a concert of Paganini, anil wns so over come by the effect his great performance prixluced, that, m consequence of it, Camillo Sivori came in to the world somewhat l>eiore his tune. This was on the fth June, 1S17. Ai lour jrsan of a^e he could perform on the violin everything he heard hia sister, play or sing His fame spread through (lenon, and be was ch ed universally the prodi gioto. When he waa six years old, I'a^itiuni came to Genoa and heard of die little ;*ri.?/i?iiwo. and after much |>eraua*ion, Ins father consented that Paganini aliould take hint in hand, and inatruct him. He afterwards was under the instruction of other great masters, ami in 1927, when he was little inore than nine years ol huc, lie performed at the Contervaioirr at Paris, to delighted and aston iahed crowds. The dilietaixti were themselves surprised. Among the highest names his stood the highest, in the mention of the concerts at which lie performed. He then went to London and performed at Her Majesty's theatre. His re ception was enthusiastic?every night during his stay iu London he was engaged at soiWrs, and fre quently three times a night. He then travelled on the continent, performing at the principal cities, ia every place creating a furcrt. On his return to Genoa ne applied himself assiduously to study. During eight years he studied harmony ami coun terpoint under the famous Serra. He continued I his career of success and uninterrupted study, and I travelled over the chief part of Europe a second time. His wonderful improvement was ob served by all judgea. Paganinion hia death-bed would be satisfied with nothing else but hearing Sivori play, who accordingly, in an adjoining apartment, soothed the dying moments of the de parting master, with the exquisite strains of his instrument. It would fill a volume to record the triumphs of Sivori; to conclude, therefore, he is the only recognised successful follower of Paga nini, among all the imitators of that great genius. He produces a prodigious effect wherever he ap pears. He produces more effect than any living violinist?he is the only one since Paganini, who has been able to give three, six, nncl sometimes even ten consecutive concerts, one after the other in the same town, and always with increasing success. Lastly, Sivori's talent is superior to every other. The German papers establish a parallel between Sivori and Ole Bull, entirely to the advantage of Sivori. Tint English award the palm to him, above his rivals, Ernst and Vieux Temps, and the French place Sivori above all the violinists of the day. The above famous per former.who is now fulfdling engagements at Ham burg, Bremen, Hanover, Stockholm, and Copen hagen, will proceed to fulfill another engagement in Londou, after which, in August, or therea bouts, he will probably pay a visit to the United States. Markets* London Moi*et Market, May 8.? Consols and the Stock market generally continued very buoyant, from our publication per Britannia up to yeaterday, when the arrival of the decision of the Senate of the United State*, on the Oregon queition, which reached London via Ha vre, cauaed the market to become flat, and, in the course of the day, pricei slightly receded; there are always ti mid poople, who take the alarm on every slight occa sion, and others who attend upon the market solely to increase and profit by the movement?but amongst the best informed people the step is looked upon aa a politi cal movement in which the President has an eye to the next presidential election, rather than to an equitable set tlement of the question between the two governments. Meantime, money is in increased supply; the best mer cantile bills are discounted at 3i to 3} per cent, and what is called inferior paper is less objected to by bill-brokers and private bankers. As an evidence of the improving aspect of affairs, we may mention that the business trans acted in Produce by the home trade during the last two weeks has been greater than for many saonihs daring the same space of time. In Consols, the last quotation for money was 00] to 1; and for the Account, 98J to Kxchequer bills closed 34i to 37s pin.; Three per Cents, reduced, OS] to |; Bank stock, 304} to 3051; Three-and-a-Quarter per Cents., 97} to J; Lonr Annuities, 10 3-16: India stock, 344 to 306; India bonds, 33s to 36s pm.; and South Sea New Annui ties, 96.

Litebfooi. Cotttoi* Market?For the week ending May 8?Cotton is a little higher thin week: indeed it can hardly be otherwiie, considering that each lucceed ing account from the ihipping porta of the United 8late? reduce! the comparative amount of receipt*. The falling off is now 391,000 bale* leu than laat year. Of the poli tic*, as affecting the price of Cotton, we take no account, having the moit confident reliance that all will go on peaceably. The advance in price*, since our circular of Friday laat, is nearly |d. on all kind* of American, "lair" Orleans now standing at Sd., and "fair" Mobile* and Up land* at 3jil. 4900 American have been taken on specu lation; and 3690 American, 50 remain, 100 ftlaranham, and 'J70 Burat for export. 1,000 Surat and 1,000 Kgyptian are declared for auction on Kridnv next The *ale* to-day amount to about 6000 halo*. The total sal** of the week amount to 39,800 bales. London Cork Esciusnt, May 8.?The weather con tinues favorable for th<; growing crops, and eaercises a depressing influence ou the wheat trade. In English but little business occuri-1. at the reduction of 3s. per qr. There is rather more iii^ujry for low qualities of bonded and floating cargoes, chiefly for shipment to Holland and Belgium. The late largo supply of English oats, and a further arrival of six or seven vossels from Ireland,prove more than enough for the present limited demand, and the buyer* act *o completely on the reserve that few sales could be made, although factors were willing to make a concession in price to promote business. A great dullness and almost absence of demand prevailed in other grain. LiTcaroot, Corn Ezchanoe, May 8.?For all leading articles our market this morning was dull inthe ex treme, depressing the value of free wheats 3d to 3d per 70 lbs. below last quotations, and rendering prices little more than nominal. Irish and Canadian flour also, of which scarcely any sales were practicable, might have been purchased at a proportionate reduction had buyers appeared. Prime English barley, in the absence of *up ply, would, if at hand, probably support last currency ; grinding samples, meanwhile, being nearly without in quiry. Malt, beans, and peas, upon a very slow retail demand, hardly maintained late prices. Indian corn, still forming an exception to the general bearing* of the trade, continued to meet a fair steady demand, and realiz ed a further advance of U per 480 lb*. Oats and oatmeal, being very unsaleable, were the turn cheaper. A cargo or twe of Mediterranean wheat, floating, the price of which has not been named, and a parcel of white Dan zig in bond at 8s per 70 lbs, comprise the only transac tions reported therein to-day. Of Btates flour, under lock, several hundred barrels have again changed hands at 30s fid, and at that rate there are buyers, but few sell ers under 37s per brL London Marbets, May #.? Cotton.?The demand for cotton has improved since our last report, and prices sr? a shade higher. The private sales for the week, ending May A, were 4900 bales 8urat at 3|d to 3fd, 3400 Madras at 3{d to 31 d, and 100 bales American at 4]d per lb. Ex porters and speculators were the chief operators. Hops? A steady demand has existed for anything with color, but few of such are in the market. Some parcels of Ame rican are reported sold. Provisions.?Holders of old Irish Butter are still free sellers, but submitting to fur ther reduced rates occasioned the demand to be good for all descriptions, and the market has been nearly cleared. There has been nothing done at present in new for ar rival. Of Dutch an increased quantity having been re ceived, caused prices to slightly give way ; the demand, however, has been active, in consequence of 9fie to 98* being taken for flne Friezland, 90* to 98* for Holstein ditto, 90* to 98a for Kiel ditto, 88* to 93* for Emb denaud Leer, and 80* to 88* forOroningen do. The de mand for Bacon ha* been le?e active, still holders evince firmness, and have obtained full rates ; a fair business has been transacted at Ms to M* for (mail, and at 48s to AOs for heavy meat On board there has been little pass ing, but the curer* will not sell but at former rates, and offer only a limited quantity for sale. In middle* a good deal ha* been done at full rates, bale fetching 48* to AOs, and tierce AOs to A3s. For Hams the demand has been active, and prices must again be o-ioted higher, Irish fetching A6s to 60s. Lard has been largely dealt in, and prices are rising, Irish bladdered fetching A7s to 94a, firkin AOs to A4s, keg A4s to AOs, and American 43s to 46s. In Cheese there has been little passing, and prices ara on the decline. We quote Cheshire at A3s to 77s, Cheddar Mis to 74a, Derby 60s to 63*. double Olouocs ter Ma to 63s, thin do 43s to A4i, Berkeley thin AO* to AA?, and American 38* to A3*. Barrelled Provisions have been sparingly dealt in, and there are sellers on the fol lowing terms Hamburgh, prime new India B?ef, ?7 10s to ?7 lAs, prime mess do ?4 Ae, prime India Pork ?6 10a, prime mess do ?3 Is; American, prima new India Beef in bond ?6 to ?A As, India mess ?4 10s to ?4 13s fid, prime mess Beef ?4 to ?4 As, and prime mess Pork ?.1 to ?3 3s 6d. Rice.?Considerable pur- : chases have l>een made in cleaned Carolina for home use, but not at better prices The trade have I'ought frealy, paying 30s for first and 34s for second sort Pat na lias also been largely dealt in, at 18* to 30s for good and fine, and 10* to 17a fid. for low and middling ; white ! qualities of Bengal hava been of more ready sals, *>d ; by private contract several large parcels have changed hands at higher rates.

Liverpool Market*, May 9.?Naval Storea?Turpen tine continue* without alteration in price ; no aale* re ported. American Tar extremely dull: at a aale to-day (Mav 8) of 800 barrel*, 10* 6d wa* the highest bid, but which wa* refuied, the holder* requiring *ome advance upon lhi* price. Provisions?There ia no new feature to report in tne market for American produce aince our lait publication. The feeling that Sir Robert Peel will be enabled to carry all hi* propoaed commercial measures, aa introduced to the Legislature, gaina ground, and it is generally expected that, on becoming bw, a great im firovement in the Provision trade will apring up. Tal ow, tic.?A moderate buainesa only haa been done in Tallow, Peteraburgh V. C. at 43s 6d to 43a, and North American at 39s to 43a 6d, according to quality.

Tobacco?galea aince our laat report are about 300 nhils, part Virginia, and part Western Stripe; the former taken for Ireland, the latter by the homo trade. The market continues ateady at our previoue rate*. Makcmestkb, May 8.?Since Tuesday there haa boon a diminished inquiry for all aorta of goods, and the mar ket ia very inanimate.

Since the departure of the Britanniu we have received our uiual accounts from the manufacturing district*.? They are not quite ao encouraging an our laat Our Leeds correspondent says?Our market to-day (May ft) haa not been quite so brisk, buyer* evidently holding back to check the upward tendency of pricea. With thia qualification, the improved atate or things may be said to be well suetainoa. At Rochdale, the market, held on the 4th inatant was extremely dull, very ftw buyera having attended, but there waa no change in pri cea, Quite aa little was done in wool as in fiannela, and every thing, for the present, aeema at a stand atill. Fro&j Hudderafield, the accounta received inform us that ther market held there on Tuaaday laat, (May ft.) was very dull, which ia attributed to the near approach of the London and Liverpool wool aalea. What few buyer* we have had complain of the great scarcity of goods adapted for the aeaaon. More encouraging accounte have been received from Manchester Although the market there haa not exhibited either an increaae of ac tual business, or a higher range of prices, there haa been a decidedly improved feeling amongst all claaaea, both of buvera ana producera. Pricea have been perfectly ateady, and the impreasion seems now to be general, that a de cided improvement ia at hand. Freights at Liverpool, May 9.?Freights to New York generally dull, and the demand for between dock* ? for passengers has much abated; 14* to 18* perton regis ter may be auoted as the value.

Havre, May 6.?Cottoua?After the receipt of the ao counta of the 6th ult., from the United Statea, whioh reached ua at the close of our preceding circular, when it wa* ascertained that no new ahipmenta were imme 1 diately coming forward, there waa a good attendance of dealer* from the trade, a revival aprung up in the de mand, and our market, which had before exhibited a do! pressed character, aaaumed a certain degree of activity. The traniactions throughout the week have therefore been to a fair extent, and on some dave were to a large amount; the spirit occasionally displayed in the buring, added to the firm attitude of holders, have produced a fa vorable effect on price*, which although they hare not quite regained tne ground they had prerioualy lest, have nevertheleaa advanced fully f 1 on our former quo tationa. Upon the whole, thinga may be aaid to hare worn an amended aspect within the last se'nnight; aud although the demand 1* confined to the want* for con aumption, the moderate atockof Cotton on hand, coupled with the acanty supply of raw material in the manufac turing diatricta, would aeem to be a auflcient guaranty againat any falling off from the preaent aituation, and cal culated rather to strengthen confidence than otherwiae We are deprived of any recent advices from the United States, and are now dsily expecting the arrival of th<? packet ship Argo, bringing datea to the 8th ult P 8.?At the moment of going to pre**, we are put in poaaeiiionot N.York datea to the 9th ult by the above-mentioned vessel, the contents of which have given a check to the demand.
