The grain markets, both in England and on the Continent, are down. Aocording to the accounts cotton had declined; hat cotton dealers on this side will think the news favorable. T he money market remained about the same as at last advices. The Bank of England rate of interest is 3 per oent. Bullion is being exported from the kingdom Free trade was progressing throughout Europe. There were manors of ministerial dissensions in England, but they originated in the columns of papers avowedly hostile to the whig government. The accounts which the Caledonia took out to England were considered iavorable, in a commercial point of view, for they brought numerous orders contingent on the opening of the American ports under the new taritf. The accounts from America had favorably influenced freights, which bad been in a state of comparative stagnation at the English ports. The Hon. Geo. Bancroft has taken up his residence in Eaton Squaro, Belgrave place, London. On the 12.h ult., he dined with the Queen, at Windsor Casde; and, on the following uwaruaj) w?, wiui ma iwijr, m B select party at Lord Palmerston's, the Minister for Foreign Affairs. The Prussian Charge d'Affairos to the States of North America, Baron Gerolt, had arrived at Berlin, to receive in person instructions from his government relative to a treaty of commerce and navigation to be concluded between the Zolverein and the North American States. The misunderstanding between England and France, relative to the Moatpensier marriage, eontiflued to afford a vent for angry patriotism on both sides the straits of Dover. Mr. Breliner, of. Wick, civil engineer, at the request of the underwriters concerned in the monster steamship Great Britain, has visited and reported jointly with Mr. Alexander Breliner of Liverpool, upon the paesent state and position cf the veseel. The report of these gentleman is to the efleet that the Great Britain has as yet received comparatively little injury; that means may be used for beaching her by keeping the stern to the sea until the next season, and it will then hp nerffiotltr nrantinaKim tn fato a?L- ?1 #w rW?vw?; ?W "?*v UVI VU IUO BUBIIU I Ministerial Affairs.?Rumors ot ministerial dissensions prevail, but they origins"* in the columns of papers avowedly hostile to the whig government. The Morning JXtwt has been giving currency to scandal arising out of the presumed enmities of Lords Grey and Falmertton; enmities, if our contemporary is to be believed, which set the different sections of the Cabinet by the ears. Such statements And their way into print relative to every government, and will be regarded as true, or snuffed aside with contempt, according to the politics ot those to whom they'are addressed. In the present instance, the probability is, that they are not correct, for the position which the British government has assumed towards France has been the set of an united Cabinet, or we should have heard long ere this of the immediate resignation of Earl Grey and those who think with him. Arrival or the Caledonia.?The steam ship Caledonia, Captain Lotr, reached Liverpool on Sunday morning, the 18th, after a passage of 13& days from Boston, during which she had a succession of bead winds and boisterous weather. Our papers were shortly afterwards landed, and a special messenger went express to London, 1 who reached the eity some fifteen hours in advance of the mail. Arrivals rncni the United States ?We have had three arrivals of packet ships from the United States, bringing late news, since the sailing of the Acadia. On the 7th Inst, the Cambridge, from New York, reached the Mersey in the early part of the afternoon, with dates from that city to the 17th ult. She was immediately followed by the Joshua Bates, from Boston, who made the passage in sixeen days, with papers to the 28d. On the 11th, the Rochester came np the river, with dates to the 23d, from New York. The news by all these vessels was landed, and immediately despatched to London by a private express, . where it was published on the following morning ' after i' reached the metropolis. The Gaxttte contained, a few days go, a list o^ 1! brevet promotions in the two cervices, long talked ! | about and long deferred. No one envies the i brave old fellows who figure in the list the addi- ! ttonal pay to which they will now be entitled. I Some exception has been taken to the impartiality with which the favors have been distributed. We will give the list to-morrow. opxniae or tkx Poets ?From the singular unity of argument observable in the London Timta, ChronieU, and Doily Ntirt, each of which is now , mors or less favored by governmental hints, it would seem that the opening of the ports is a 1 question not finally disposed of by the cabinet; but that Lotd John Russell will be deoided by the pressure of circumstances between this period | end tbr meeting of Parliament. I The Bavarian government has u>*t prohibited J ihe sale of fulminating cotton. This article is ' placed in the same category aa gunpowder, to 1 sell which it is requisite to take out a special li- 1 rence 1 . f * f i t E NE' NETR Th? Argentine Troubles.?1The return of Mr. Hood from the Rio dc la Plata with hi* mission unaccomplished, i* regarded in th s country aa an unfortunate event. Our interfeienoe, in the desire to bring hostilities to a close, may have been praiaewortny, but it lias proved worse than useless. Interlerenoe in the affairs of others, at all times an ungracious task, when once undertaken lor the interests of humanity and the progress of civil zation, ought to be prompt and energetic. If Rosas refused to listen to the remonstrances of England and France, he ought to have had the consequences pointed out, and, if necessary, been made to leel them. Every maritime power is interested in putting an end to thp protracted barbarism of which the Plata has been the aeeno, anu wuicn tareatens to extend to the crack of doom, 'f he present relations of France and England are unhappily ill adapted for aeiiag hereafter in concert on this or any other question. Louis Philippe is assuredly as much interested in the independence of Monte Video as his English cousin; but the recent shock to the tntenti cordxaU will probably prevent nrataal co-operation, unless, indeed, M. Guizot thinks the honor of France compromised by the obstinacy of the Buenos Ayrean dictator. Lord Pal mors ton is just the minister to make such a man as Rosas " knuckle down," even at the risk of a " little war.** But his pugnacious propensities are such a constant source of alarm to his colleagues, that, unless backed by the Government of the Tuileries, he is not likely to stir effectually.? Wilmrt't Timtt, Nov. 19. American Soda Biscuits.?A new article of import has recently been brought into this country from America, called soda biscuits. Several ship ments have been made; but, as yet, the demand exceeds the supply. The biscuits are made very light, about twenty to the pound, and are of ex eellent quality, eating as fresh as if they had just left the oven. They are retailed in Liverpool at sixpence a pound; but as the supply has hitherto been chiefly from one baker, a higher price has been obtained than they could be supplied at were there competition We are informed that the maker of them has found the speculation so profitable, .that he has resolved to build six large ovens to extend his trade. So far, he hat. been able to keep the business in his own hando; but we learn that several English bakers have resolved to try the experiment; and, when it is stated that one barrel of flour will make three barrels of biscuits, and that the freight of a barrel of biscuits and a barrel of tlour are the same, thei e seems to be every reason to think that they will successfully compete with the American maker; and when it is known in the States that these biscuits are a profitable shipment, there will be more general supplies, and a consequent reduction in price. English Colonization in Borneo ?In a recent sitting ot the Dutch States General, the colonial minister said that the Dutch government had never wished to oppose the formation of an English ootucuicm uil iuo isianu 01 i^aouan, as it had nev* r considered that spot within the limits pi its territory. 1 he government of the Netherlands thought that any attempt of the English to form a settlement on the mainland of Borneo would be contrary to the spirit of the treaty of 1824, though the English government viewed that treaty in a different light. The English ministry had, however, informed the L utoh administration that it had no present intention to avail itself of the right which it considered itself to possess of forming a settlement on the north coast ol Borneo Entering for thk Ecuador Sksvick.?The agents lor General Flores, the ex-president ol the Euc&dor, in this country, are actively engaged in entering men for the purpose of forming the projected expedition to re conquer that republic, in lavor ol Flores, bat the real object being to establish the son of Munoz, husband of the queen dowager Maria Christina of Spain, as emperor of the Ecuador. The Spanish government is rendering every assistance, both in money and men, to carry out this adventurous expedition, and there are already upwards of seven thousand men in depots in the north of Spain, wanting the time of departure. In Ireland the agents had entered between three and Tour thousand destitute fellows to join the expedition. The same decoy is now being practised in London, and several men are daily entered. They do not as yet receive any regular pay, but are provided wuh beer, and bread and cheese rations daily, un'.i' they embark, two steamers, now arming, having been purchased for that purpose. Loosx Cotton in Ships ?A notice of some importance to the masters and officers of cottonladen ships, has just been issued by the American Chamber of Commerce at Liverpool. Many ol them, the Chamber says, are in the habit of appropriating to their own use the pickings and loose cotton imported by their vessels, under the impression that they belong to them as perquisites. Considerable losses have, in consequence, been sustained by the importers; and the noiict states, that all such appropriations are illegal; also that the Chamber have resolved to protect chirights of the parties aggrieved, in all cases in wnich any of tne members may be interested.? By way of precaution, masters of ve??l? commended to send the loose cotton which cannot be distinguished as belonging to any parlicu lar lot to the cons gnee of the ship, who" will ap portion it among the several owners or consignees of the cargo, according to their respective interests. Ma. Dejcesetr's Entertainments. -Mr. Dempster, an American vocalist, whose great abilities have rendered him extremely popular in his own country, last week gave several pleasing musical entertainments at the Conoert Hall, Liverpool. Mr. Dempster is highly g'lled. not only as a vocal performer, but as a poet ana musical composer Several of the most delightful songs of America are of his composition, and he renders tham wit)-, uncommon grace and sweetnesss. He will assuredly b a favorite in this country; the ladies, in particular, will, we conceive, quickly appreciate and acknowledge his merits. He is at present in London, and will shortly make his dtbul in the metropolis, where, we understand, Incomes out under high patronage, the Hon Mr. Bancroft being one of bis supporters. We wish him much success in his English career. He is a truly gifted musician, and deserves the support and encouragement of every person fond ol " melody and sweet sounds." Coal Mines in the Pyrenees ?Count Castellane has caused different points in the Pyrenees to be examined, in the hope of discovering veins ot coal. Alter considerable expense his efforts have at length been crowned with sucoess, and a vlin of oosl has been discovered by him in the commune of Orignac. in the district of Bagneres, which gives great hopes. The depth of the layer discovered is about ten feet English, and rans in an horizontal line in every direction,* without it being able to ascertain to what axtent. M. de C&stelUne lias purchased part of the ground in which the mineral is embodied, and has demanded the cessation of the mine. The matter has been laid before the administration of the Hennrt. mcnt of the Hautes-Pyrenees. Ma. Bai fk.?Thiagentleman arrived in London a few days ago irom Vienna, where he produced hia favorite opera, " The Siege of Kochelle," having conducted it two nights. Alter the second representation the manager gave him a splendid sapper, to which ail the celebrated i artistes and amateurs were invited. During the | upper, to the great astonishment of Balle, Straus?'n splendid band, conducted by the veteran himaeif, struck up the overture to " The Bohemian Girl," and selections from his most popular works, in the street, during the repast. CoircnrnuTioir or Taoors ?It is reported that the government intend to have the whole of the troops stationed in England conoentruted at three points, from which the aid of the numerout railways that are rapidly covering with their network the whole surface of the island the metropolis, the manufacturing districts?and our southern coast, which would be most exposed in the event of war?could receive speedy and effectual protection. The places that we have beard named as likely to be selected for this purpose are Woolwich, Birmingham, and Newhaven. Revival, or rua Sotrrxxan Whelk Fishery.? Active su ps are now in progress for the restoration of the whale fisheries of Great Britain. A company, called the " British Whale and ; eal Fishery Company," are about to undertake the matter. Government, it is said, has intimated its approval by the grant of a charter, limiting the liability of shareholders. The leading merchants I of London having afforded their sanction to its , proepeets by becoming its directors, and the ob* 1 lects being in the highest degree patriotic and useftil, its success may be considered certain. The French minister of public works has received a general report on the ravages committed by the floods, from which it appears that it will require upwards of 06,000,000 f rancs to repair the bridges, emfrahtmerits; roods, lie , which have been destroyed, and to execute the works neces?ary loprevent the recurrence of a similar disaster. The estimate does not compromise the i smount of injury suffered by private property W TO J YORK, SUNDAY MORI 1 Marriaqe of tir Earl or Eloin .?The mar- | riage of George Charles Constantme, Earl of Elgin ! ana Kincardine, the newly-appointed Governor* I General of Canada, with the Lady Mary Louisa Larnbton, eldest daughter of the late, anil sister | of the present, Ea:l of Durham, and niece of Earl Grey, was soiemni-ed on Saturday week, by speI cial license, at St. Peter's Church, Eaton Square, in the presence of a select circle of frieuds of both j families.

The King of Bavaria has just issued a decree, suspending for two years the payment of the arrears of tuxes, in order that the tax-payors may be able to contribute funds lor the supply of bread to the tloor at a cheap rale His Map-sty has also subscribed lYoin his own puise 3ti,000 florins towards relieving the poor, and has ordered that corn from the government stores shall be supplied at a low price. Fasx Trade and Wages.?In Carlisle the wages of the hand loom weavers, since the passing of Sir Robert Peel's measures, havo been considerably increased upon certain fabrics, and we under si and there is the prospect of a further rise very shortly. The manufacturing population of Carlisle are, we feel hoppy in adding, in full employment.

Baring Brothers It Co , have presented a me morial, signed by several eminent mercantile hoases, to Lord Palmerston, against the invading expedition against South America. The Queen has appointed James Simms, E?q., Assistant Judge Of the Supreme Court of Judicature in the island of Mewfoundland; and Edward Mortimer Archibald, Esq., Attorney-General for <hat island.

It is ieared that several other respect able commercial houses ate seriously compromised by this unexpected visit. In a letter to the Nation, the Rev. Jno. Kenyon, a catholic priest, talks of "the desperate infamy lowering over the close" of O'Connell's career, and contends that it is time for Ireland to seek another leader. Mo*als iw Enolakd.?A curious expose in cennection with a noble family, has been affording merriment to the quidnuncs. The Earl of Fitzhsrdinge is at daggers with his brother, Mr. Oraatlev Berkely, and at no prospect exists of tbs feud being healed, they hare rushed into print, and presented to the world's gaze s strange picture of the evil passions which the law of primogeniture produces. In s political, as well as in a domestic view, this misunderstanding Is calculated to make a far deeper impression on the public mind than abstract disquisitions on the rights of man or the injunctions of the decalogue. The chief actors have teen long before the world, and have figured in strange scenes. The name of the peer wts fhmiliarly associated, a quarter of a century back, with the present Countess of Haddington, then Miss Koote, the celebrated actress. Mr. Grantley Berkoley is the gentleman who entered, more recently, the office of /Voter's Magazine, and horsewhipped the publisher, for a critique that appeared in that periodical on a novel which glorified the virtues of his ancestors. Of that critique the lute Rifted Dr. Msginn wu the writer, and, j indignant that another ahould experience the vengeance i which ought to have been levelled at him, he avowed I the anthortbip, and received in return the Are of hie an -| (agonist in a duel.

Ireland. The stale of Ireland continue* to elicit abundance of eommeut; and, in the absence of more exciting theme*, ' the English jou rnalist* pen long and tiresome diatribes on ' the anomalous state of that country. That extreme dis- i tress exists there, is undeniable. The peasantry In many I parts ere in a state of great destitution, and their poverty j makes its influence felt on tho classes above them. The failure of the potato crop will prevent, in a great measure, tho payment of rents during the ensuing summer, and as , the hulk of the Irish landlords live from hand to month, it ! requires little sagacity to see that many eatatei of the landed gentry will have to be knocked down h* the mr. 1 tion?er to the highest bidder. When the desolating effect* of the present temporary affliction have passed away, the state of society cannot fail to be Improved by the visitation. Storms clear tha atmosphere; and the moral consequence* of the want* nnder which Ireland now groans will be seen hereafter in the substitution of b*na fide capitalists for a bankrupt gantry. and a comparatively independent for a positively destitute peasantry. Poor cotters, hewers of wood and drawer* of water, on their native soil, are bad enough; but a poor landlord class, with a superfluous amount of ptide, and a total absence of tact and business habits, is Infinitely worse. Ireland suffers as much irom the poverty of its landed proprietory as from the wretchedness of its peasantry. There are needy aristocrats in England, but they are exceptions to the great mas*. In Ireland, on the contrary, the poor gentry far outnumber the rich. Henoe the disgraceful fact, that thoae who ought to be foremost in assisting the government to stave off* the starvation which threatens the land, are really the most active in victimising it. The Executive is regarded as a milch cow, at which they ought to big unceasingly. But the boldness of Ministers, aided by a skilful and independent Lord Lieutenant, is defeating tbe selfishness of the soil proprietors, and the result is, that the poor, who are privileged to grumble, mingle their lamentations with their landlords, and all agraa in denouncing the niggardly help which is held out to them. Portagal, Lusox, Nov. II.?Advices have keen received from Lisbon to tbe 30th ult The position of tha governmant appears to bava much improved, as two considerable actions have been fought with the Queen's adherent* and tbe insurgents, in which the formar utterly routed the latter The troops under the commend of Gen. Schwalbach, Viscount de Setubal having Joined in under the Baron de Estromoz. on tbe night of the 37th ult. attacked th. ,a*nlt..l ??? ..J h.lf a the following afternoon, in strong poaition, iu the town of Viaoa At Ave o'clock the Queen'* foroea had obtained a complete victory, with toifliog loee, and bad captured two gun*, with some ammunition and stores; while the lose of their enemiea is supposed to have amounted to at least 1000 killed, wounded, and prisoners. The other action took place at Villareel, in the province of Trasses Monies, where Don Casal completely defeated the in surgonts. who. sustained a loss, inoludiag two of their leaders, Veiga and Rebello, end this disaster is said to he ve struck terror into the surrounding coon ry. Baron Cazal subsequently advanced. Every effort is

mode at Lisbon to collect and eauip those intended to be employed in quelling the revolt. By a decree issued on the KOth, the Queen has temporarily assumed the dictatorship. or absolute authority, and has deprived the Marquis do Louie, Count das Antas, Baron 8a da Bandeira, and the other noblemen who have espoused the cause of the insurgents, of all their titles, dignities, and decorations. Accounts from Lisbon, extending to the 8th instant, reached London on the 18th. When the Terrible lett the Tbous a report was in oircul ation that 800 men, detached ny Saldana, had routed the Cintra guerillas with the loss of eighteen killed The marshal himself was with the royal army at Torres Vedrei, the famous position of tho Duke or Wellington,wher# he awaited quietly the etteck of Dae Antes. Should the insurgent leader be so imprudent as to assume the offensive, and attack Marshal SalJanha In his entrenchej camp, his defeat must he inevitable, provided only that the queen's troops sustained their fidelity. The result, however, might bo very different it he postponed an attack, and adopted the proper course of retiring upon Coimbra, for in that case 8aldanha must either remain inactive, or, to strike blow, must iollow the rebels into a hostile coun communication with Lisbon open; and ia that event he would be completely cut oil'from hie supplies. Daa Antaa was laid to bo at the hoed of 14 000 men, conflating of 6000 regular troops, and 0000 volunteers and guerillas. An aide-de-camp had reached Lisbon from the insurgent army, with the ultimatum of the Count, conveyed in a letter to the queen, which implores her to reconsider his former communication, and appease the national disquiet by recalling her late ministers, and restoring the principles of government established by the late Minho revolution. The only answer given, wes a verbal reference to the Diaro containing tho decrees by which Das Antes was deprived of ti'Ies and honors. A telegraphic despatch reached Lisbon on the 11th instant, statiog that General Swalbech had commenced the bombardment of Klvora. Bonfim, however, had determined to h< Id out, and there was every prospect that his resistance would be protracted, and that the insurgents would make vigorous efforts to relieve the place. 8aldanha, with the Queen's army, was still within three days march of Lisbon, where it was his policy to bring Das Antas to an engagement, and the sooner the better for the royal oause. But the insurgent leader was not likely to throw away his advantages by precipitating a battle against such fearful odds. He would, doubtless, hesitate to attack a well-equipped army in a formidable position, and having the advantage, too, of a fine artillery brigade. His course would be to retire rather than risk a conflict, and then he would be enebled to wra ch his opportunity, when Saldanha might find it requisite either te withdraw to Li'bon, or to make a movement in advance of the heights of Torres Vedras. The success attained by the queen's forces over the insurgents at Cintra, proves alter all te have been but of trifling: importance, though purchased with a somewhat heavy loss. The only advantage gained wee the teaporary dispersion of the armed peasants, who returned as soon aa ever the troop* were withdrawn. The rebels fought with bravery, disputing inch by inch, end retired only when their ammunition was expended. They ultimately retreated across the mountains, without leaving e single prisoner in the hands of the soldiers.

An effort is being made- we directed attention to it some time ago?by means of an association, hased on the principle of the anti-corn-Uw league, to compel the government to reduce the duty on tea, in order to facilitate the transhipment of produce to the East, and the effort, no doubt, will be acoeptable. Fortunately, no" rested rights" stead in the way. It is purely end simply a matter of taxation en affair of the revenue-and when that point ia satisfactorily settled, the duty will be reducedThe wool, like most other markets, is dull. The demand at present is limited to the lower kinds of foreign wool, adapted tor blankets and rough winter habiliments. In these descriptions higher prices have been realised. The other kinds remain as previously, inactive. The accounts which came to hand by the Caledonia are favorable iu a commercial paint of view, for they bring numerous orders, contingent on the opening of the American poits under the new tariff. This circumstance has already influenced freights, which, until tha lait two or three days, were in a mate of comparative stagnation. A permanent improvement is already indicated in the increased rates which the trade demand. A reference to the proper head will show the current as compared with previous prices.

The market has not been affected by the accounts of the great storm at Havana, owing to the encouraging statoments respecting tha prospect of the sugar crop in Brazil. The ootton market is quiet-, the speculative demand haa ceased, and parties are looking to the effects which the alleged deficiency in the new crop may have on pricee.

LivicaroOL, Nov, 18.?Since the departure of the last steamer the market has not been so buoyant as heretofore. During the commencement of the month holders refased to accept lower prices for wheat; 69s to 60s were demanded by importers for Indian corn ; sales were, therefore, limited to a vary narrow extent. On the ?th instant, the business done in wheat was trifling, and the prices last quoted barely maintained.? States and Canadian flour were more saleable on that day, and obtained an advance of 0d per barrel. Indian Corn had a good demand, principally for Irish account. At the market held on the 10th there was a pretty full attendance, but the business transected ,was,confined to a limited retail sale for old wheat, at a decline of 3d per bushel; there was not, wa believe, one sample of new Irish wheat offering. American flour was 6d per barrel, and Irish full Is per sack lower, and very little progress made in the sale of either. There was some inquiry for flour, in bond, and 30s 6d per barrel refused in quantity. There was a firmer feeliog in the wheat trade on the 17th,and holders refused to submit to anv further decline. Barrel and sack flour were in slow request; some three thousand barrets of western, in bond, ware sold at 30s for investment.
