J Of the Packet fl The above is an engraving from a daguerreotype like' aass ofCept. John Rathbone, who waa washed overboard ' ] and loat from the packet ahip Columbia, on the 13th of last January. Thia aketch dooa not do full justice to the I face of Capt. R.; it la probably impoaaible to do ao in a ' wood engraving; but ita general accuracy, all who ' know, will admit. It would be difficult to convey to an < engraving the benevolent, happy expression that waa i always to be aeen in hia countenance < Cnpt. John Rathbone waa born in Stonington, Ct, and entered upon a sea-faring life at an early age. He commanded a amalt coaating veaael during the laat war with fireat Britain, and waa one of the foremoat in managing the torpedo affair, with a view of blowing up the Britiah fleet, at anchor off Stonington. In thia enterprize be ia laid to hero exhibited great ooolneea and daring. He lubsequently commanded several ships, among them the packets Crawford, Talma, Kentucky, and Nashville, and has made voyages to nearly every port In the known world. In one of his voyages in the Crawford, during atremen loua hurricane, the ship atruck on the Bahama BanksShe bad a large number of passengers on board, and the grentest consternation reigned among them. Kvery one seemed to give way to the expectation of being lost, ex uept Capt Rathbone himself. With the greatest perse, verance, coolness, and presence of mind, he succeeded in landing safely every person on board, and his conduct i hsx Ao/snsinn Itna hnnn annlrnn nf in tVin hiffliAlt (arms I of commendation. j Captain Uatbbone wai appointed to the command of I the Oxford, one of the old lina of Liverpool packet*, in 1 July, 1H34,and remained in her until May last, when ha . ] Important from the Seat of War. i [From the New Orleans Picayune, Feb -30.] i The schooner Cora, Captain Hiring, has arrived 1 from the Brazos, whence she sailed the lore- < noon of the 19th instant. Hhe brought over ten pas'-angers, among whom was Dr. Hardy of this State, who lias neen stationed for months at the mouth of the Rio j Grande as Post Surgeon. From intelligence kindly com municated by him, and from the Matamor*i Flan of the , 13th inst. we derive the following information. The intelligence we have before received of the prospect >( an action at Saltillo is eonflrmed. All Gen. Butler's outposts are said by the Flag to have been driven in, and the attack, if made at all, was expected during the first , pw days of February. Or. Hardy is of opinion that Gen. . Taylor's command at Saltillo would exceed rather than t rail shor t of 6,000 men. Of course, there was no fear us ; lo the result. Many believed that when the Mexicans t found him in such lore* and so strongly posted, tho idea of an attack would be abandoned. j Very many ctliceri were still of opinion that Santa , Anna meditated no serious blow in that direction; that ' tho movement of a division of his utmy thither was hut a , leint, and that he will lead the main body ol his forces to , Vera Cruz. f Various rumen have reached the city by this arrival, , some ol them to tho clfect that a general engagement had , taken place. To none of these do we attuch any ere t denco. A good deal of apprehension is felt at Matnniora* of un , attack from Gen. Urrct. This otlicer is undorstood to h* , on this side ol the mountains, at the head of 4 000 tr oops. | Of these 2 000 are not to bo surpassed in the Mexican ( service; the remainder are irregular cavalry or raucheroa. I Colonel Drake has the command at Matamoras,where an Indiana regiment is stationed. Ono company of ri ] He* had been detached from it to relievo Captain Lowe, t in the command ol Fort Brown A company of rtgulnr recruits was shortly expected to garrison tiiot pott. Col n-oWn Y%*A v.vrvvnnrl Ammunition for tho me of the citizen* of Matamoraa in caao of bh utlark. llo had sent to Point Isabel lor several pieces of ordnanre J lor the defence of the city, tind Cap'ain McDougall'a company of Indiana volunteer* hBd been converted into ' a corpt of artillery and stationed in the Plaza. We infer, Irom all we can learn, that the danger threatening Ma- ; minora* wan not deemed very imminent.

The loss of such a man is truly a calamity. Kor the last thirteen years he has been identified with the Liverpool packet service; and who is there among the whole mercantile community or sea faring men who didjuot know and respect Capt. John Rathbone t To know bim was to love him?and tbat he should have perished in tho woy he did, far from his family,his friends, and his kindred, is indeed heartrending. But 'in the midst of life we are in death;''and may we all, when summoned to "that bourne whence no traveller returns,'1 be as pure and unspotted as was he. All that was mortal of him, is gono from us forover?but his name?the recollection of his virtuous and honorable life?our respect for bim when living?will bo cherished by all who knew mm. also mil that the boys have a decided fondness for the spurt.

Fugland wan's u tien. Jackson to moot, expose, and light against such an intumous monster. However, leaving tha causes out uf the question, tho fact in beyond doubt, that there it breadstuff in England sullicieut to feud both nations lor nearly two seasons,una that the original scarcity which existed has given a pretext to the great dealers, and they keep back the supply, in order to command their own prices They would do ao at all times, but it ia only in a time of scarcity that they can do so, and they are able (backed by millions at their command in Threadneedle street and other parlors) to keep it back and sell oa they please, and they will do so, until a fresh harvest and an ahundant yield, shall render their stores, immense as they are, unnecessary. Would you believe it possible, yet such is the fact, and it was mentioned publicly in 1'ailiament, that the " pious people"at Liverpool, (a cliqur which faithfully represents the Bcribes and Pharisees of olden time, in their zeal for a formal Hubbu'h and in their bare fuced evil doing), were so highly offended that the poc: r people should be fed with soup on what they call the SabI bath, that they actually forbade and prohibited the good deed of rhnrity and mcicy on that day ! This is proof Iiositive that their piety means and is, cruelty and uniudness to your lollow creature and contempt of <iod; , far certainly he who despises and ill treats his fellow I man despises Ood. Yet theio same pious ones have servants to cook lor them good dinners on Sundays, and they sit down to plentiful repasts, while they cruelly forbid the distribution of a little soup to famishing families, because, forsooth,thoy are so pious that they would not break the Sabbath. 8uch are in all countriea this pious class ef people; literally a "generation of vipers," for they spit out venom, malice.and spite against all their fellow creatures who are not like themselves. This same party, which, though formed out of all parties and sects, exercises great power and influence, has attributed the famine in Ireland to the Diviue judgment, in anger because of the grant to Maynooth College, and because of the pension given by government to Father Matthew.? And they have raised a sum of monoy to profit by the oc casion of Irish suffering, to convert the Catholics to l'rotestanism. By such acta they go en adding to the shame una disgrace wrucn aireauy cover tnem wherever their deeds are beheld. The only agitation of any coniequence going on now. ii an effort to obtain a reduction of the duty on tea But it cannot succeed, in the present state of the country: it is too much to expect that any Ministry in its senses could give up a revenue amounting to above fourteen millions of dollars, at a time when two-thirds of another nation are living on the national exchequer, and nearly < a million sterling per month is paid out in wages to support the Irish. The theory of taxation require* yet to be understood: it has received great light by the new movements lately made here in abolishing protection, (that is, the high tariff,) and resorting to low duties. The returns for the last quarter, brought down to January ,1847, afford a sin g. larly triumphant refutation of high tariff men in all parts of the world. Notwithstanding the duties have been reduced in some cases twenty-four times below their former amount, the revenue in every brunch bar increased, both on the year as woll as on the quarter. The teetotallers (as the temperance societies are called here.) are makiug great and partially successful efforts to abolish Christianity, and to bring the country to the happy condition of the Mahometans, who joined the temperunce cause, and what is more, have stuck to it for l'JOO years Th<y say in their preaching and teaching thut it is of no use to preach the gospel or the sciiptures, but you must begin with temperance and make mon sober, aud establish the great temperance cause. They would thus soon set themselves and their inebriate ravings above Christianity They may succeed in the United States, in some parts, but they cannot here, en account of the groat beer cause; forat dinner time in Londou, from 1J till -i o'clock, and again at supper time, at 0 o'clock, the post boys, as tliey aro called, go round from house to house, with beer, which is taken regularlv at these meals; and above two millions of gallons of beer daily are required in this great city to help wash down the roast beef and pluin puJding which smokes, as usual, on every board, as if there was no Ireland and uo tumine. France is not politically in an enviable position with tne toreigu powers ; at no lormer period ot her history was she in more contempt with her neighbors. To the mortilicatiou of the Kinp, the Northern Courts hare,it is said, sent an unper tiva demand, requring an absolute ronunciation of the throne ol Spain on the part of France for the Duke and Duchess of Montpenmar, or any of the Orleans dynasty. Thus tho very oh ject of so much labor and oxertion is snatched out of the King's hands, and all tho views as to Spain frustrated Another indignity Franco has had to submit to, viz : a threat from Austria, that i the debulus oi the Chambers must be kept under, and the affair of Cra cow and Poland only be touched U|>on with due respect to the Northern powers If tiiis kindly hint is not attended to, Austria gave to understand that her ambassa dor would be withdrawn. Accordingly, a very mild and gentle tone on these exciting topics has been observed to prevail in the Chambers -tho Deputies of Franco are i effectually gagged; it is not ot much consequence, however, for they were bofoio but more puppets in tho bauds of the Ministry, who pulled the wires und guided them i all, quite harmoniously and obediontly. The government an l ffnances oi Spain are in a s'ato ol j 1 great confusion and disorder, and there is little, it any, doubt that Austria and tho other groat powers will aooii i find a pretext for quarrel both with France and Spain, to , oatore the two banished legitimate sovereigns, viz:? the count de Montsmolin, to the throno of Spuin, and Henry of Bordeaux, to that of France. Indeed, u genu- ; i ral report has spread like wildfire, throughout the latter country,that the great Northem Powers were preparing to declare war against Franco, and put down the rovolutiou of 1*30, an uiiceasiDg eye sore to all hgiumute nun i urcbs. We may, indeed, he prepared to hear soon, of strange doings in Europe, and great disturbance of tho i balance ?t>w existing Cracow was the beginning ol tho monarch revolutionists?ami when once a single stone is loosened, or removed frrm the arch ol political morality and good luith, the whole ediQco it aupports, must soon fall to piecos. This is a law as constant, both in private rind public atfairi, as tho motion of the planets and other heavenly bodies. A aerious quarrel is seid to have begun between Austria and the Pope, owing to the Pope's having rejected a Bishop whom Austria had nominated for consecration. The Pope is justified by eveiy reasonable mind, for the propriety and Justice of his course, while Austria is indignant and angry at her authority being disregarded In Tuscany, also, troubles have arisen, and here, again, Austria, it is said, has been called upon by tho (fraud Duke, to assist in suppressing the liberal tendencies ol his subjects. 7'his is the beginning of events in Italy. As to Switzerland?that confederation of little ropulilicsexists only by sufferance, as the lawyers say, and it will seon go the way of Cracow, and be extinguished like the ancient kingdoms of Bohemia and Poland, formerly independent nations, but now swallowed up by Austria and llussia yrhe war with Mexico seems to us all bore, to hnye arrived at its most interesting crisis. We are anxiously waiting to hear of a great battle?another San Jacinto ; ami perbapa Santa Anna ugain ma to prisoner. Mexico meets with no sympathy from the English, but is looked upon us a nation ol lost character? rogues and clients National character an delicate a matter a* individual, and can never be stained or befouled with impunity. Htrong indignation was felt horo at an attempt of the Mexican agent to issue letters of niarutie and naturalize tion; so much so, that the Charge d'Affaires was obliged to come forward and officially deny that his government had ever authorised such a step. Though John Bull effects to despise America and every thing American, yet I am happy to say, he shows his practical respect lor her by following, though at a slow distance, in her footsteps. Most of the < great national relorms, which have, ol late years, been < effected in England, ewe their origin to American ox- 1 ample. Questions, long ago agitated and settled with yon, now come up occasionally here. For example, education?the general education of the people ?is now become a necessary ministerial question, by the outcry of public opinion, set on loot by the preceding example of America. At the present moment, again, the old question of Sunday mails-settled in America nearly thirty year* ago, by Col. It M.Johnson's famous and immortal Sunday mail report?ia being agitated throughout the land and in Scotland,and all th? Pharisee* have united their forces on this subject, ns well as to prevent the poor from having food to eat on Sundays. The question at Glasgow is, whether the raitros 1 stall bo used on Sundays or not. The Pharisees settled the metier summarily, by t pecked meeting, end stopped the Sunday train. Another more 1 public meeting ol proprietors was then held, and the great body reversed the former decision, and determio ed that the trains should run as usufll on Sundays. (Jreat controversy and excitement has prevailed on this question, quite new to the people bare, and pamphlets, sermons and volumes, even, have been published, pro and cou, on both sides Meantime, the mttter is in abeyance, though practically aetlled by the majority of proprietors ! in favor ol the Sunday traius So that the " pious" may stop at home on Suudays, it they please, without any I foics being put upon them, while they hsve tailed in their eflorts to put torce upon others who do not wish to stop at hame or at taverns.

A charge of 14 shillings fid on a quarter of wheat, and 0 shillings 6d on a barrel of flour, is an excellent profit to the owners of ships. The cotton, of course, remains behind. Wo know it to be little less than a full average crop. Thar* will be an inundation of its produce sooner than is expected. We have watched the cotton market now for many years, as politicians,- quietly looking on, but wo never knew a eear of assumed, and, aa the brokers call it, of well asceitaiued deficiency, in which the Americans did not delude and impose upon the Liverpool importers aud the Manchester manufacturers. We assert that this deep game is in play at this moment. The money which America is extracting from England for her corn and Hour, enables the speculators tothold back theii cotton. In short, they cannot send it. The shipping is otherwise and more profitably engaged. But as soon us the turn comes, uud it must come belere many weeks pass over our heads, the farmers of England will open their stoics, corn must fall, and cotton will come tn like a flood. We do not claim attention to these rsmarlu on the giotind that we have never been decetvod.
