The arrival of the steamer Hibernia at I'oston, has placed us in possession of one week's later intelligence from Europe. It is important, both in a commercial and a political point of view.? The commercial accounts are of the greatest importance to us. The probable rupture in the tntentc corUialc of France and England on the question of the marriage of the Queen of Spain, may be of importance to us in time to come. We hnve carefully examined the accounts, and have arrived at tlte conclusion that the harvests throughout Europe have been deficient. In France the domestic supplies of grain will not sufllce for the domestic consumption,and at least two million quarters of corn in addition to the crops of that country, will be required to meet the wants for consumption. This not only cutsoff supplies from France, to meet any demand Irom Great Britain, but will require from some scuroe, a very large quantity. In the other grain growing countries on the continent, there has atso been a deficiency in the harvests; and the souices to which Great Britain has heretofore looked for supplies to make good any deticiency in her own harvests, have this year proved defective, and the attention of those engaged in this trade in the United Kingdom, must be turned to the United States for whatever they want. It has been asserted nt public meetings in England, that the surplus agricultural pioduction of this country, as great as it undoubtedly is, would not suffice to supply the deficiency 111 Great Britain and France. This is going too far; and although we look for exaggeration on all sides, it is our impression that it will not require fifty per cent of our surplus to meet any and every demand from any part of the world. The advocates and opponents of free trade, in this country and in England, take very strange views in relation to the hearing the existing high pi ices for breadstuff* has upon the principles ot the two parties. It is unother ev deuce of the desperate position the ulirus of each party occupy; and show> that they will, like drowning men, catch at straw- to i-cp their principle* above water, and to ruve tln-ir political existence. Tbeoppooe teoffiret re Iritain, ?.<v that the people liavo not realised the benefit of low prices f r br< adstnil pi utilised. They point .n ilirfu.uL nl ?rn-, ? unit .-k where are ail the boasted benefits ol iree tradel This will do very well for pol ticiil effect, and might pass very well in a stump speech, but n will have no influence with those who will lor a moment reflect upon the inconsistency ot such an assertion The free trade party men never agieed to regulate the seasons, or the harvests, and it has nothing to (lo with d. fin ent domestic production?it has merely provided lor the admission of supplies from foreign countries, in times ol scarcity. If prices are high under the free trade system, what would they have been under the old restrictions 1 The opponents of free trade in Great Britain say nothing about that. In this country the free trade party are in liigli spi ts, on account of the high prices ruling for all our agricultural products. The wlioie thing is put d< a h to the credit of the democratic party; and the ultras consider it a perfect God-send, ' at this moment, as it will without doubt have a very favorable influence upon the approaching elections. The days ol miracles have not yet pass?<l ?uin? It i? psrtrnnrrtinsirv with what effect Cer tain circumstances can be used for political purposes. The free trade party inGrcatBritain is in despair, in consequence ol the high price of food; and the free trade party in the U. States is filled with enthusiasm and excessive joy, in consequence of the advanced prices realized for our agricultural products, and the extensive foreign demand. According to their theory, the home market is abagatelle compared with those abroad; and it must be admitted that circumstances, so far, this year, have confirmed their principles. These circumstances have, however, been produced by events, over which all the politicians in creation had no control. Had it not been for the failure of tae potato crop throughout Europe, and had not the harvests generally been deficient,'prices for breadstuffs, both in this country and in Europe, would have been lower than have been realized for many years; and the opposite parties, viz: the protectionists in this country and the free traders in England, would have been in ecstacy. They would then have been at the top of the heap. However, it is an ill wind that blows no one any good, and the political geniuses ot the present day are very much in want of something to make political capital of. Even men of stable minds must have a hobby-horse to ride. Thus, high prices for food in England, may detract from Sir Robert Peel's reputation as a profound statesman, while high prices for breadstulls in this country, may immor1 ir?a V? y\Vw?rt T U/albor flip SiflPrntO ru of tho Treasury, end the leader of the free trade party in the United States. It is strange how little it requires to make or mar a man. Episcopal Convention.? 11/ reference to a report of this body, in another column, it will be perceived that Bishop Onderdonk find his friends have achieved a inost sign tl victory over the opposition. By a tremendous majority th convention passed a resolution, directing the trustees of ' the Episcopal land topay to the Bishop the sum of $2,500 annually from the 1st October next, for two years, the Bishop giving security to return the same, if some competent tribunal should decide that he was not entitled to be paid any salary during his suspension. Thus this long question is at last set at rest, aad i: is well that it is, for we expect to see at the next convention, the Episcopal church di< racted, as were the Baptist and Methodist denomiua'i ins, on the subject of abolition We are extremely sorry that this qu? s'lott lias made its way : into the church, but it lias done so, and having done so, it mu.-t be met ai d settled one way or the other. L> okout for a -lor r y *ts-ion of the next annual convention ol the Episcopal church. Post Office Mismanagement ?We perceive that there is a universal ou'cry rais-d by the press, in relation to the late culpable negligence hy which the European mail w?? left behind, oncl the letters and papers intended lor the good people of CnpeCod, were shipped to Europe by the Cambria. We regret to see our contemporr - '(>.? their temper and get in n passion, wiiyn there is no earthly use in it. We have been oinplnir <ng of grots mismanagement in the , ? i otfices for the last twelve months, and instead ol growing better it is every day growing worse. C-ive Johnson seems to look upon our complaints as capital jokes; and it would really appear that alter overy instance ol negligence and mismanagement, he went out of his way to bring about another. This being the case, we are determined in future to take things coolly and philosophically until the end of the present administration, when we may have another postmaster general. All wo can now do is hope, hope, hope. Oh that Cave Johnson would take to farming! Nkw York Lrrraas by tiik Cambria.?Th? Postmaster of this c ty yesterday received a reply by telegraph from Boston, to his application for th< restoration of the mails left behind by mismn nagement, " That they will bo forwarded to Neu York this evening," and be dispatched by th< Great Western on Thursday next.

Be the arrival of the brig Mary A. Jonoe, Gapt. Jones, <ve have received news from Montevideo to the 10th August. Mr. W. Brent, late minister at Buenos Ay res, with his lady, and Sealer Antonio P. .an, came passengers in the vessel. Notwithstanding our advices, via 1110 Janeiro, to :he contrary, wo learn, that the blockade is not yet raised. The in justice of the blockading squadron can best be shown by the fact, that from the 1st to the 13th July, anil during the month of Jane, seventy-two vessels were permitted to pass the squadron, but of these not one was American. Mr. Hood was at the camp ol Gen Rivera with i dispatches; when Capt. Jonas soiled he had not i

as yet been at Montevideo, and die inhabitants , of the latter (dace were of opinion, that for tho 1 i...... (v,? MrvUmlrt would continue. The Buenos Ayrean army had vacated Moldanado, and Gen. Rivera himself arrived at Montevideo, the 10th August, being the day on which the vessel sailed. Capt. Jones says that the prioe of hides was rising daily. He also wishes to return his thanks to Capt. Henry, of the U. S. Jgoop-of-war Plymouth, tor the many attentions received from him while convoying his vessel home. On the 29th July, Mr. Harris, the American charge d'ati'airs, addressed a letter to the Minister ot Foreign Relations, stating that he was instructed to present to the Argentine Government,in pursuance of a joint resolution of Congress on the2tith of February la?t, a copy of the "Narrative of the United Srntes Exploring Expedition, during the years 1838,1839, 18411, 1841 &ad 1842, by Charles Wilkes, E?-q , commander of the expedition and of the United States Navy." Mr Harris availed himself of the opportunity to express the very sincere satisfaction he felt ait being the medium of presenting the work to the Argentine government, not only from its real mi rit, but because it serves to illustrates the kind spirit and friendly feelings which animate the government and people of tne United States towards the Argentine Republic. The Minister, replied under the same date, uiai n. Cj. ine uovcrnor uuucpi^u wnu ujc mugi I cordial esteem such adistinguished present, which was a Iresh evidence of the Kind spirit and friend- | ly leelings which animate the government and i people of the U. S. toward* this republic, and had I ordered it to be placed in the Public Library, the I directors of which were instructed to preserve it I with special cure, and also to deposit in the ar- 1 chives of the instit tion copies ol the letter of the 1 charge d'all.nrs and of the reply thereto, as like- j wise ol the note addressed to the Argentine mm- > inter at Washington, directing him to make ! : known to the S?ecretsry of State the high sense entertained by the Argentine government of the friendly dis inction conferred upon it. 'sTlie Buenos Ayres Pa<krt says :?In consequence of the paragraph published in our last, relative to the salutes on the 4'h of July, we have been requested to state, in order to avoid misapprehension, that the Devastation had no Aureri I can flag on board, and that Commander Crouch | acquainted Captain Pennington of the circuin- j stance, and ol his willingness to hoist any nther Hag he had, which was satisfactorily agreed on, ! una the Devastation accordingly hoisted two ! Union Jacks. Hear Ye! Hear Ye!?We have received from i soine unknown individual in Michigan, whom I from his style, we take to be one of the prophets of these latter days, a communication intended for publication, but without name, date, or anything else to make it-intelligible. He has inclosed j in die letter the sum of two dollars. W e should be pleased to oblige our unknown and friendly inclined triend, but from the occult nature of the commu- j nic&tion, it is impossible for us to insert it. If the prophet will send us his address, we will remit him bis two dollars. Theatrical s. Fare Theatre.?Mr. Leonard appeared iasi evening in three piece*, on the occation of hia benefit.
