The Mrxlraii l)el?t In KiikIiwkI. [From the London Times. May is] For some time punt there hn? not been a question dis ctis?e 1 with so much interest in the city circles as that of the acceptance or rejection of the Mexican proposi tions The committee it is expected, will declare in th >ir favor; but from the communications we received, bo'h oral and by letter, there is reason to believe that there will be a strong op position on the part of the de ferred interest wh*' are not 111 liie least convinced by the arguments ef the other party. The great and important point for which they con tended is. th tit those arguments winch involve a distinc tion between iheii ow.. i>osition in Octobcr, 1H47, and thut of the active bondholders at the present moment, arc entireh mig.itoiy: and they reier w ith confidence to the terms of the .igreement, which Is endorsed both on 0-t. eferred the active bonds. The third article ot ihc ;c.-rce, upon which the operation of 1837 was bused, is 'here described ns having been modified, and the modification is ci'e t as follows; ? Interest on the National Consolidated Fund shall be j iivrihle in London half voarly. on the lit of April and on the 1st of October of each year. The bonds of the fust scries to commence to bear interest on the 1st of Octobcr, 1*37; those of the second series from the 1st of Oclobei 1847; and for the better securing the punctual payment of the said interest, the Mexican government ?;hall appropriate Irrevocably thereunto one sixth part ot .ill tho rustom Home duties of the ports of Vera Crux tin t Tampico." It need not be explained tliut the bonds of the first se ries are the Actives, and those of the second series the Deferred. The words"said interest,"say the deferred bond holder"., distinctly refer to all the interest which shall foil due on either of the classes of bonds, as well to that which commenced in 1837. as to that which will (or, ra ther. ought to' commence in 1847; and there is not tho ?lightest tenable pretext for a distinction. Certainly, lookir over tho clause in question, this seems to be its natural and legitimate interpretation, and the distinction to which ret'erenco was made yesterday seems complete ly to vanish. On another distinction, uot of the rights, but of the in terests of the Active and Passive claimants, a correspond ent writes as follows "Your city correspondent, in his observations on the unjust proposition of the Mexican government in regard tattle holders of deferred bonds, remarks? " The active bondholders may indeed be a little dis satisfied at the composition which is ottered them for their three overdue coupons, but they will be pleased to find the large quantity of Active tttock which threatens to flow into 'he market in the autumn of 1S47 reduced to less than half its original amount.' "Permit me to observe that if they do escape such an inundation in 1817, it is only to submit to it in 1846; the deferred debt due in 1847 amounts to 4,634.000. which is proposed to be cut down to 1,850,000, whereas the decree which makes this unfair proposition creates an Active debt of 4,6.M),OO0, the dividends to commence from Juno, 1846. "It is professed that Mexico cannot meet the pay ment of dividends on 1.624.000 in 1848, and jet she offers security lor the pavmcnt of dividends on 4,660,000 in 1846 " It is hnrd for the holders of Active Bonds to have their coupons which have been over due for one year and a hnlfconverted at par, what must it be to the unfor tunate deferred bond holder. whose bonds represent over due coupons, to be kept out of his money for teu years ? end then instead of his dividends being converted at par, they are again cut down to 40 per cent " The best thing for the meeting to do would be to re ject the terms ottered unanimously, and authorize the committee to treat for better terms, and it is generally understood that the Mexican minister here has full powers to grant tlioin " It would indeed be very lamentable that any division shoul ' exist amon_ the bond boi lers, and I trust there is too high minded a feeling among the Xctivebond holders to seek any temporary advantage at the expense ol their fellow bond holders" It remains to he seen what arguments can be brought forward on Monday against the very clear and ?.tringent ob e. tion? of the deferred bond holders Statements that Mexico can do no more, or is in immediate want of money, will not suffice The deferred bond holders are not pressing any claim -. they are contented to remain quiet for the next eighteen months, and to let their ac tive brethren have the benefit of their position in the meanw hile All they ask is. that their present situation may remain unaltered, and that they may not be deprived of the rights which ought to accrue to them in October, 1847. If the Mexican Government is then unable to sa tisfy the demands of its increased number of claimants, let it, they say. propose some arrangement to the whole body without distinction. A correspondent suggests a plan, which we insert without the -lightest notion of recommending it, except bv remmking that it is base 1 on the principle of treating ail the holders alike :? " 1 would suggest to my fellow-bondholders, for their consideration at their next meeting, that the whole amount of active and deferred Mexican debt, as well ns the debentures, shall be consolidated into a 3 per eent stock, and that no more bonds shall be issued than are are actually necessary lor exchanging the piesent amount of bonds for new ones, which, I believe, would be for about iTll.OOO.UOO sterling, altogether This would enable the government, according to their own showing, to pav the future interest with punctuality, w hilst the sacrifice on the part of the bondholders would be more equally borne But to exemplify my proposal in figures. I should state the consolidated Mexican debt to be. in round numbers, say ? 11,000,000, upon which the annual interest w ould be, at 3 per cent ?330,000 " Now, according to the statement of the Mexican Finance Minis ter, the custom houses of Vera Crui and Tampico produce an nually $6,000,000 ; and there fore the 20 per cent assigned for the iuteiest on tiie foreign debt would he $1,200,000 " Tho duties on the exportation of silver from the ports in the Pa cific (which he proposes to add> 360,000 " And the minimum net revenue of the tobacco monopoly, which is also proposed to l>e added 1,616,670 $3,070,670 * 616,334 " Leaving an exetir of ?336.334 Which you will allow ia an ample margin for all contin gencies, and for providing ttie annual ium of ?.M),000 (or the redemption of tint capital, ai proposed by the Minister." Jletlro and the United Htatei> To the Editor of the Times t? Pray do not aliow the country to be humbugged by ihe artected show of moderation evinced by tlie Senate of the United States on the Oregon question. Mr. Polk and the Congress will give you the 49th parallel to the sea, or any greater slice of that barren country you may l'ancy. Let them bluster, reason, or use sort sawder as they may, they will yield to all the reasonable demands of i it- British Government. The meat object of American policy will be then in a lair way of ac eoinpli-hment, and the States will then have a Wide country directly nortii of California, whence they can pour settlers into that magnificent pro vince. Mexico, atul not the Oregon, is the end and aim of the United States. Twenty years ago, the Cabinet of Washington demanded, as a fron tier. the IIio Bravo from the Gulf to the 37th par allel, and thence, the 37th parallel in a straight line to the Pacific. The troops of General Taylor are now on the left bank of the Rio Bravo, close to the 37th parallel; and you will rind, ere long, American citizens on the shores of the Bay of San Francisco, at the other point of the desired line. By what right is Gen. Taylor on the left bank of the Kio Bravo 1 The ground is Mexican as much as Middlesex is English. What would Europe say if the French took a start ami occupied the lelt bank of the Rhine I Why, sir, the Americans have just as much right to the ground opposite Matamo ras as the Frencli would have to ?eize on Coblentz! You may say Mexico and its people are not worth a thought?agreed ; but when the United States get possession of the mining districts of Mexico?an inevitable result of their present movement?and of the Bay of San Francisco, a naval station six weeks nearer the Chinese markets than any we |>e-ses??will they not become too powerful for us1 Anil when they embrace, in the natural pro gress ol events, all the northern parts of the F'a citie?all the ports worth having of upper Mexico ?w il they not become as saucy as powerful f But where is the remedy 1 I have one at your service. Let us insist on having settled ai the same tune with the Oregon question the frontiers west, north, and east ot Mexico. Mexico will be too ?lnd to tollow our ndvice A frontier nnd final trenty between the United State* a'id Mexico is more necessary to British interests than the settle ment ot the Oregon dispute. Mr P.tkenham is a truly able man : he understands the Mexican question as well as he does the Oregon. I am certain, if you do me the favor to publish tins l< t ter, and that he sees it, he will comprehend what I mean, and be right glad to rr-c-ive instructions from his government in accordance with it. I may be wrong, and Wiser heads than mine are at work on this subject. But the only advantage I possess i?, that I nave been on the spot, and I nave had access to authorities emanating directly from the Government of the United States. Pail Mali, May 10. A. B. France. The advices from Paris are of the 16th ult. Tne Mimrrttr publishes a return, from which it aiPt'Rr? that, during the fourth quarter of 1845, 432,722 Aiwb* frequ -ntod the markets of Algeria, Which tner brought 84.536 oXen, 122,269 sheep. 6,951 nor-H'*, 3,931 mules, 5,465 as?es. lie. The l'iris papers of Saturday, the 16th ult., like tlior*' of tin- prerfd ng day, enter lirgely into the personal altercation between MM Guizot mid Thiers, which occurred in the Chamber of Depu ties on Thursday. On this subject the Drbati publishes an admirably sarcastic article occupy ing ??everal columns The bill (tor granting supplementary credits) in winch this ntfriir originated, was at length passed on Friday, and in a manner which, when all the noise it occasioned shall be recollected, will create .-ui prue. When put to the vot?, there were?For th"! b li, 2.13 ;? against it, 3 ; rnajo lty, 235. Before tins resalt was arrived at, the extraordi- I nary supplies required for th? service of iho col*> oas nv- to an animated debate on the cond Hon 01 e rlarr m ? colonies, and which, ll transpired. Ualb~"in no mmeliormted by j the bill of last Experiments have lately been made at Vin- ; cennes with a cannon, consisting entirely of steel, ' sent by die United States Government as a pre sent to France. It appears unite certain that the much-talked j ot' visit of the Queen of England to Paris will not take place, at all events this year. Meuemet Ali's son, Ibrahim Pacha, is in Paris, and is a lion of the first order. lie occupies him self in visiting tin* public buildings, and every thing worthy of notice. He is lodged in the . Elysee Bourbon, a splendid mansion belonging to the State, and all the honors that the Govern ment can show to royalty have been heaped upon j him. T'ie Dunkirk journals state that the appearance i of the potato crops in that country was excellent. ' Every day the market receives increased supplies, and according to the opinion of the growers them selves, the crops, if favored by fine weather, will have never been more abundant than in this year. It was remarked in particular that the foreign po tato, which numerous growers had sown, yielded , stronger crops than those produced in the country. The journals of the departments received in Paris announce the alarming spread of incen diarism in France. They al<o speak of the la mentable effect of the lato frosts on the French trees. The receipt of the "Oregon Notice" in France, created little or no sensation, the French press seeming to consider its passage, as amended by the Senate, " tret cancilionic." The position of affairs with Mexico, however, excited considerable interest. Lecotnte, who fired nt Louis Philippe, has not yet been brought to trial It appears that the crown lawyers have some reason to suspect he was the tool of political faction. Algeria. The Moniteur publishes a dispatch from Mar shal Bugeaud, dated the 30th Ajiri', which states that the French had fallen in with Abd-el-Kader, | who once more escaped (rom their hands. Tho French detachment, however, fell upon the nearest traction of the Arab army, killed twenty ot the fugitives, and captured "their baggage. Another dispatch gives an account of an engage ment in which the Arabs had 200 killed, and tlio French only 7 killed and 20 wounded. Ben Naka, who was wounded, fell into the hands of tho French. Belgium. The accounts from Brussels are of the 6th ult. Notwithstanding the Cabinet has obtained a majority of ten in the Chamber of Representa tives, it is by nonneans to enjoy a lengthened ex istence. The opposition, both in the Chamber and the Senate, is very powerful and active, and will, no doubt, with its influence in the country, succeed in overturning it. The apple of discord is a measure relative to education. The government is taking the advice of the Chamber of Commerce, as to the propriety of continuing beyond the next month the laws far the free importation of food, passed on the dis covery of the potato disease. So far, the general impression appears to be, that ilie public interest requires the law in question to remain in opera tion some time longer. Our newspapers take the same view of the vote of the United States Senate on the Oregon ques tion as the Paris papers; that is, that it is very conciliatory, and will lead to a satisfactory ar rangement. Little interest appears to be felt in the Oregon question in this part ot the world. Germany. Advices from Betlin to the 9th ult. are received. In the course of a short time the Council of the Zollvereiu will assemble nt Berlin to continue the discussions suspended some time back at Carls rube. It has transpired that among other ques tions to be submitted to it, will be one as to the propriety of increasing the duty on English twists, so as to favor the importation of cotton from the United States and Brazil. Other propositions will also be made of a nature to extend tfie direct commerce between the States and Germany ? The recent sweeping reforms in the English tariff will also be brought under consideration. Our government has directt d a commission to examine into them, and their probable effect on the com merce of Germany, nnd draw up a report for the information of the Zollvereiu. A treaty of com merce between Naples and the Zohverein is about to be agreed to. There have been some disturbances at Augs burg, caused by a slight increase in the p ice of beer. The German is one of the most tractable mortals in existence so long as he has plenty of beer ; but the moment you touch his malt liquor, he becomes tis tlercc nnd terrible as Jolm Bull when he is hungry. Great interest is excited by the experiment to send a vessel direct from Amsterdam to Vienna. Npnln. We have received advices from Madrid to the i 10th ult. inclusive. The government had begun to consolidate it self. It was rumored that general Narvaez had been invited to return to Madrid. The insurrection in Galicia was not suppressed as soon as was expected. Madrid is pretty tran quil. A railway is ordered to be made from Madrid to the frontier of France. Foreign Theatrical*. Mrs. Alfred Shaw is about to retire, her last ap pearance has l?een announced. The lloval Sliaksperian Club are endeavoring to collect funds for the purchase of the house at Stratford-on-Avon, in which Shakespeare was born. Verdi's opera, " I Lombardi," was brought out by Mr. Lumley, at Her Majesty's Theatre, with every advantage of decoration it was possible to bestow upon it, and with an adequate vocal cast, Grisi, Mario, and Fornasari,sustaining the princi pal characters. It was this ope? which original ly cave Verdi repute among; the continental lyri cal theatres, anu which indicated the presence of a composer, competent in all the facilities of the Italian school, to occupy the almost vacant sent of Donizetti. Mr. Webster and Madame Celeste have left for Hath and Bristol to fulfil a short engagement in those cities. Dragonetti has left to Mr. Henry Phillips his grand pianoforte, and a splendid foreign edition, in four volumes, of Marcello's P?alms. After all that has been said and sung resr ,*cting his great wealth, it turns out, we rtnd, that 'the whole of his etfects will scarcely realize live thousand pounds. Vieuxternps has just been honored with a most lucrative appointment as premier violinist to his Imperial Majesty, the Emperor of Russia. The French minister of the Interior, has pre sented to the opera house, at Paris, a statue of Rossini. It is to be placed in the vestibule. We have to record the death of Bologna, of theatrical celebrity. Lately, he was in the com pany of the Theatre Royal Adelphi, Glasgow, but within the la<t eight or ten months the de cline of years became visible, and he gradually Mink to rest. At the Worcester theatre recently a leinale per formed .the part of Richard the Third. The pre sent Mrs. Glover once performed Hamlet. A mechanical musical time-keeper has recently been patented. It.* mechanism is so contrived that it correctly marks the first note in every I nr loud and distinct, and also gives, in beats more feebly expressed, the intermediate parts of the bars. There is a little niauist at Paris, at present, only ten yenr# and a halt old, who plavs the music of Handel, Sebastian, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and the more modern masters, without any book be fore liiin. The Jenny Lind "fever," a* it is termed, has broken out with terrible etfect at Vienna. On the 22d of April, \* hen the singer mad* her appear ance, the streets were thronged as early as two o'clock in the afternoon. Tlie court were in the imperial l)ox. Mtdemo'*elle PIr?sy, who has been convicted, in the penalty of ?4<i<)0, for having quitted the Theatre Francais, Paris, contrary to th < articles of agreement Iwfwcen her and tne d rector, has returned to St Petersburgh, where she has been engaged at a high salary. Those who are in tho habit of giving concerts at the opera room are greatly disappointed at Grisi and Mario having made up their minds not to ac cept any engagements for morning concerts. The now prima rfonm, Madame Ro?si Caccia, at the Grand Opera at Paris, has just been en framed for two years at a salary for the first year of 5.000 francs (?200) per month, and, for the se cond, 6,000 francs. 0 Tamburini left Berlin on the 2d instant, for Pa ris, from whence he Will proceed to St. Peters burg. American performer? are beginning to find their way to this capital. La=t year there were two or three who gained considerable popularity by feats*ol address nnd horsemanship. At pre sent there is an American exhibiting, at the Hip podrome, (n sort of circu?) a series of curious performances on a slack rope. He is very much admired. Tho Courrirr Franrait states that the penalty of 100,000 francs, which the celebrated actress, Madame Plessy Arnoud, has been condemned to pay the French Theatre, by the Sii|?erior Court of the Civil Tribunal, will not !)e paid out of her own nurse. When she signed an engagement for St Petersburg, the Emperor of Russia's agent ac cepted beforehand all the pecuniary consequen bl? actrav, ml th^Mfore b vh tho fine and ex penses will be paid o it of tho Imperial treasury. Sad tidin's frjm Italy have reached the musi cal world, lloiiizetti, who left Paris ?ome month-* a^o, in an alarming state of health,has not derived from the m'H climate of his country the improve ment which hi* friends anticipated His health continues to decline, his mind lias fallen into deep melancholy, anil his tottering reasen is plunged into gloomy med iations; he addresses those who surround him but to dwell, not on his approaching end, but 011 his already accomplished demise. He sits down to his piano, preludes some brilliaut notes?his fugitive thoughts soon escape him; his fingers wander at random over the keys, and pro duce but incoherent sounds, when the unfortu nate man strikes his forehead, and mournfully ex claims, " You see that 1 am dead !" He walks in his garden, gathers flowers, scatters about their leaves, and says, pointing to them, " Poor flowers ?dead, like poor Donizetti!" In vain do his friends strive to cheer him by executing his finest compositions. He listens, but is insensible. He no longer knows his rhtft d'auvrr. and smiles no more at his fame. Markets.

A committee was then appointed, comprising the com missioned officers of the corps, to report a design for the monument, and to take the necessary step* to ensure its erection. Whatever may be said of the extraordinary fertility of the Mexican soil, it is nevertheless a fact that any milita ry expedition penetratiug into the interior of Mexico, can obtain, in abundance, no other supplies than cattle and Indian corn. On these, and almost exclusively on these, must soldiers be subsisted. I, therefore, respect fully suggest to the proper department of supplies to send down, as early as practicable, a sufficient number of portable corn mills, for the use of the invading army, for an invading army we unquestionably will nave. The Mexican armies carry with them mtlalti, or flat stones, supported by short feet, on which the corn, after being soaked fore number of hours in lime water, ia crushed, and reduced to a paste, from which the tortilla, or corn cake?the universal bread of the country?is made, by baking on another flat stone, or on a oake-iron.?Ntxc Or leant Bulletin, May 35.

The steamer Hi hernia arrived at Bos*on on Monday last, after a quick and rapid passage from England. By her we have accounts down to the 19th ult., a fhll synopsis of which will be found in this day's paper. The intelligence brought by this arrival is of more than usual importance/ considering the delicate crisis existing in our for eign relations, between the United States and '.lgland. "No great change has taken place in t be markets since our last accounts. The position in, I prices of corn, cotton and money, will be J' under their respective heads. ( Vie of the most important events in connection v, ,th English affairs, and having some little bear OiH< al?o, on ours, which has taken place since the lust arrival, is the passage of the new eornbill, by the unprecedented majority of98, in the House of Commons. This is the first step in the most important, commeroial and financial revolution, that is destined to sproad throughout the civilized nations of the earth. Some doubts are expressed in the British journals, whether the bill may not be arrested in the House of Lords ; but we do not apprehend any insurmountable obstacle of that kind. If the present House of Lords prevented such a bill from being made a law, a bill so popu lar in the country, it would only lay the foundation for a popular outburst, that may end in the aboli* tion of tfiat body altogether. There will be obj stacles, but nothing to prevent the ultimate sue ecss of the bill. The effect of this great change in the commercial policy of England will soon begin to develope itself, and operate on other countries.i { In France and Germany the same revolution, in* other matters, has already taken root; and in the United States we are in the commencement of ai similar movement. How it will terminate a few weeks will tell, after the present session. The next important intelligence brought by tha steamer, is that in connection with the Oregon question and the relations of the United Stated with England. Full accounts of the ultimate pa*J sage ol the " notice" have been received in Engn land. The tone of Parliament and of the presi is extremely favorable, peaceful and conciliatory] Yet it cannot be disguised, that, while there is an earnest profession made by the government, a4 will appear in the incidental allusion to this mat ter, by the minister, in the House of Commons, on the last night of the debate on the Corn Bill, yet, this spirit of conciliation is combinod with s determination to insist on certain rights and car tain privileges which that government claims ir the Oregon matter, and the enforcing those claims, by the evidence of military and naval pre parations of no small magnitude. This seerr highly probable, from indications both in Parlia ment and through the press. We have no doubt that final instructions, as to the ultimatum itself have been brought out, by tVe recent steamer, t< Mr. Pakenham ; and that he will re-open the ne gotiations with Mr. Polk, at Washington, such e may either result, within the year, in p?ace& settlement, or end in positive war. The Britrij claims, however, are now more moderate thii formerly. They seem to assent to the proposi tion that the 49th parallel will be the basis of tlx new and final negotiation. They will, probably claim the free navigation of the Columbia river for a certain length of time, and also the whole c Vancouver's Island. It will remain now for Mi Folk and his cabinet to see how far they cai meet these views of the British Government, aa< whether 1n the present situation of the country in its relations with Mexico, they will insist 01 " the wliolo or none." Our relations with Mexico are not overlook* in England. The London press, and the Tin*t with great sagacity, has anticipated the ruptmr on the Rio Grande which has taken place. It ii thought there, however, that our difficulties wit' Mexico will tend to complicate Mr. Polk's p*si tion, and make him yield more on the Orefo question. The victories which the Amerioa arms have achieved on the boundary, will hare ly help to realize such an expectation. Yet, it i possible that Mr. Polk and his Cabinet, in thedi wad glory of the crisis with Mexico, may vor < unity settle, even at 49, the Oregon question, gii ng the British government the other oontingti x>s they claim, without creating any extraordim iy noise among the 54 40 advocates in this oour try.
