We have received, by the arrival of tike steam ship Great Western from Liverpool, highly in teresting and important advices from England in relation to our politio&l relations wilh that country. We learn, by private letters from the best authority, that the British government 'fcuve re cently exhibited the greatest anxiety for an ami cable arrangement of the difficulties With this country, und were disposed to settle at once upon the forty-ninth parallel, from the moun ! tains to the ocean, and have only proposed the navigation of the Columbia entirely on account of the Hudson's Bay Company for the remainder of their charter. It is understood that there shall be 110 renewal of the charter effected on exclusive | navigation of the Columbia. The British government have in this and in other mutters connected with our foreign af fairs, exhibited a disposition to preserve the present amicable position of the two countries at almost any sacrifice. The abrupt and unex pected settlement of the Oregon question has been produced, as we anticipated, by the com plexion ot the political affairs of Europe, which we at present are not prepared to refer to. The government of Great Britain not only has evinced a disposition to bring to an amicable con clusion all the points at issue, with this country, but has'even in contemplation the offer of media tion with Mexico, in relation to our difficulties with tliut country. The British minister, at Mexico, Mr. Bankhead, has been author ized to give the Mexican government to un derstand, that no aid in any shape must be expected from, or will be granted by his go vernment. This is certainly a movement little antici- , pated here; but recent events in relation to a new loan in London, confirm this, and our fiu- j thority for these statements is such as to leave in j our mind no doubt of the fact. I The United States occupies a most glorious position among the nations of the world. Wo have experienced the most midden transition from the most gloomy prospect in all our foreign affairs, to the brightest and most gratifying view ] of a future filled with all the elements of wealth, prosperity and happiness. The treaty with England settling the Uregan question, lias probably by this time bee a ratified, and is no doubt on its way to London by the Hi- | bernia, as an express messenger, from Washing- ; ton, passed through this city last night for Boston, by a special train over the Long Island railroad, to anticipate the departure of the steamur. The steamer of the 4th of July, from Liverpool, will j bring returns of its reception in .London, and of i its effect upon commercial matters on the other j side. * The American Tariff?Its Modification.?It is the general impression in political circles, that the tariff will merely be modified by the present session of Congress, that no more reductions will be made in the rates of duty than these modifica tions will require; nnd that these modifications will be made mor| with an eye to a removal of the numerous defects in thesprcsent act, than to a reduction in the average duty. Those interested in preserving the protective features ol the act of 1842, have abandoned all fears in relation to the preservation of that policy, and appear ti> be dis posed to let matters rest, feeling fully satisfied that the wants of the government will compel jt to con tinue those discriminations for revenue which the manufacturers have so strongly and porserveringly advocated. We have no doubt but that the ad-valorem principle, proposed by Mr. Walker, will be aban doned. Its adoption would be an expvriment, and we are not at present in a condition to deal in experiments. The "specific system must be 1 partially adhered 'to; perhaps not to the extent now enforced; but, in many instances, its remo val, for the establishment of the ad-valorem prin ciple, would require such a reduction as would seriously affect the revenue of the country for centuries. It is not necessary, even were it possible, to point out the defects requiring immediate remo val; as the whole subject has, however, so much changed sinoe the two plans have been submitted to Congress, that it is difficult to tell what the pre sent policy of the government is. Previous to the commencement of hostilities with Mexico, the principal object was revenue, and it was anticipated that the average rate of duty could be much reduccd, without reducing the revenue below the wants of the country; the increased expenses of the government, growing out of our difficulties with Mexico, require a large revenue from customs, and we do not see how, in the face of this fact, it is possible for the government to even contemplate the smallest re duction in the average rate of duty upon imports. General Armstrong.?This gentleman, who holds the otfice of American consul at Liverpool, arrived in the Great Western and proceeded im mediately to Washington. Wo understand that he is the bearer of import ant despitchcs from the American Minister in London to our government. These despatches refer, it is said, to the Oregon question ; and if that matter is not already settled by treaty, it is supposed that these despatches will expedite it to a final and satisfactory conclusion. We learn from persons who have seen General Armstrong, that he is in fine health and spirits. His appointment to Liverpool has made him hosts of friends there, and he bids fair to be as popular on the other sido of the Atlantic as ho ever has been on this. , It would be well for the country if all our con sulships were held by men as capable as General Armstrong. Our consular system would then give a high tone to American character abroad. Late from the West Indies.?The colonial legislature of Bermuda was opened on the 20th ult. by the governor in person. He recommend ed in his address the establishment of adult schools, and of a pauper lunatic asylum. The Queen's birthday was celebrated at Hamil ton, Bermuda, with a good deal of pomp and ce remony, on Sunday, the 24th ult. Sir Henry McLeod has resigned the governor ship of Trinidad; and Lord Harris, grandson of Lord Harris who distinguished himself at the cap ture of Seringapatam, lias succeeded him. The planters of Demerara nave directed their attention to the growing of Indian corn. The House of Assembly of Tobago have pained a vote of censurc on the fieutenant-gwcmor, and have demanded of the governor the suspension and removal from oflicc of the chief justice. They havo also come to tht) resolution ol transacting no further business until such suspension and re moval take pi ico. On April 5th an extraordinary phenomenon was observed at the Carenage of Grenada. The water of the bnsin, previously tranquil, rose to an immense height, washing over the wharves, and otherwise assuming a remarkable appearance. i owrr.*iri?r Fiihi*u-Parties now take the Boston ' Vrpreaa train from Brooklyn, at 7 in the morning, and I left on the Ashing ground near Tlumb Island, by the 1 tteamer New Havrn, which crosses to Norwich with the passengers fur Boston , and on the return of the steamer, in the afternoon they are taken from the fishing ground sad retarded to Brooklyn tits nae evening 1 NEW8 FROM MEXICO. funim rAinov&Aii BY TUK I STEAMSHIP MISSISSIPPI,1 THK MILITARY PREPARATION!!, OiC., <M. | [From the Mobile Herald, June 8.1 The U. 8 steamship Mississippi, Captain Fitzhight, ar rived at Peasacola on the 4th init, having railed from Vera Cruz on the 31st ult.

Navy, bearer of important das Btolies to our government, from Com. Sloat, command ( the Pacific squadron. Seven other American* from , Mexico alio arrived in the Mississippi. Mr. Parrott, Mr. Dimond, and Dr. Wood, arrived here ?n Sunday?the latter named gentlemen hastened on to Washington with the despatches. Hie only political news of importance which we ga ther from these gentlemen is, that Mazatlan ami Tepcc %ad declared for Santa Anna, and it was generally thought there that he would be recalled. The cause of ' the revolutionary movement was understood not to he j connected with the Texas question, as was the case in . former revolutions. The news of the battles of the 8th and 9th were re ceived at Mexico on the 17th ult. On the 19th the papers | announced that a battle had been fought, in which the (Mexicans bad acted like " limn." This announcement did not prove sufficiently explicit for the populaco, who after waiting some days for the publication of the official account, made such demonstrations against the Govern ment as to leave no room for doubt that a " revolution" was meditated?to prevent which on the 25th. Taredes sent the dispatch ot Arista to the Government organ for publication. Great excitement prevailed?drums were immediately beat throughout the city for volunteers ; and maledictions against the Americans were uttered through out the city. ? Mr. Dimond informs us that all the Americans except tho*) employed in the factories either had left the coun try or were preparing to do so isnmediately. Capt. Gregory, now commander of tho blockading I force, had restored the two Maxican vessels which had been captured off Vera Cruz, by the squadron. He ad < dressed a letter to General Bravo, of Vera Cruz, raving i that he had released the vessels in consideration of the fact that the Mexican authorities had permitted two Ame rican vessels to depart unmolested subsequent to the no tice of the blockade. The American ships of war at Vera Cruz are?Raritan, Falmouth, and by this time, no doubt, the Princeton has all* arrived. The St. Mary's is blockading Tampico. The Somers has boen sent to Campcachy to ascertain "whether the people of Yucatan are favorable to our ' cause. | The American bark Eugenia, Captain Briscoe, from ' New York, belonging to P. A. Hargous &. Co., evaded the I blockade, although pursued by the boats of our men of : war and got into Vera Cruz?(this same Captain run the j blockade of the French) all the other American vessels I had left the port of Vera Cruz. 1 "'ram Mr. Parrot, we learn that he met the news of the captnre of Captain Thornton, and the commencement of hostilities at Gaudalaxara. Upon enquiring at the Tost Of.ice, he learned that the government had not express ed the news. Mr. P. immediately employed a trusty per ?on to carry despatches containing all the particulars I possible to be obtained, to Commodore Sloat, lying at Mazatlan, with his squadron. This express would reach Commodore S. five days in advance of all other commu nications, and there can be no doubt that ere this our flag is waving over the walls of Mazatlan as veil as "Monterey in California. Our readers may recollect that sometime since it was ' announced that Captain Fremont had been ordered out 1 of California by the Mexican authorities. When this i news reached Commodore Sloat, he immediately des i Witched the sloop-of-war Portsmouth to St. Francisco flav to act as circumstances might require. The American squadron at Mazatlan on the 1st May, consisted of the frigate Savannah, Commodore Sloat, &0 guns; sloop Levant, Page, 24 guns; sloop Warren, Hull, 24 guns; sloop Cyane, Marvin, 24 guns; and store ship Erie, and hourly expected, frigate Congress and sloop Portsmouth. j The British force at the same date, consisted of the ! Collingwood, 80 guns; Talbot, 26; Juno, 26; brig Spy, j tender, 3; and tho brigFrolic, at Guayamas, takingln I treasure for England. It was reported that other British ships of war were to rendezvous at Mazatlan, but none others had arrived. But little doubt exists at Mazatlan. and among the officers of the squadron, that the British admiral has in structions not to allow the American squadron to take possession of any Mexican ports on the Pacific. If this supposition should prove correct, the next news from the Pacific will bo ol the most highly exciting character ?as there cannot exist a doubt that Commodore Sloat will take possession at all hazards. It is supposed that for some time past, Commodore 8. has had instructions to seize all Mexican ports on that coast, whenever he should receive reliable news of the commencement ol* hostilities between the two countries. [From the Mobile Journal, June 8] All the Americans had left Vera Cruz exccpt two Or j three, who have retired into the interior, their affairs not t permitting them to leave tho oountry.

Campbell, yesterday evening, received a letter from Lieut. Gov. Young, the effect of which will be to arrest the march of the several companies of mounted Rangexa which have been raisod in this county, at least for a few days. It appears from this communication, that the Adjutant General of the State has ordered out more men than was called for by the War Department In this dilemma, Governor Young has felt it to bo hia duty to countermand the order of 34th May, for fourhan dred men from St Louis, and to require only the rais ing of a Battalion of Artillery. As we have said, the ef fect of this order is to arrest the march of the companies of mounted men, under the command of Captains Fischer, Hudson, and Fdmondson. This will be, unquestionably, a keen disappointment to them. The battalion of Artillery will of courso proceed to Fort Leavenworth, ax soon as it can be filled up, and put in readiness for service.?St. Louie Republican, June C. OHIO.
