PhbUc Debts of the (States?Improvement In their Finances. The financial condition of our State treasuries is likely to be materially improved within the next year. All the works of internal improvement must be highly productive, on account of the large amount of produce pressing forward from the interior. They will be, without doubt, Slled to their utmost capacity with breudstuffs coming to market, and we shall feel the want of facilities for getting produce to the seaboard hefore another winter sets in. The financial condition of New York, 1'ennylvania, and Ohio depends very much upon the revenue from their public works; and as the canals of the last two have heretofore produced a very inited income, compared with the interest on eir debts, any increase in their productiveness a matter of much importance to the bond' rs. h is our impression that the revenue se works this year, will exhibit an in1 that of former years, greater than has heretofore been realized. i-rices lor an descriptions 01 oreausiuns are bo much above remunerating'points, that every surplus bushel of grain in the] interior will be urged forward, and the receipts at the seaboard markets this season will, without doubt, exceed any previous one. Various estimates have been fermed relative to the probable amount of the surplus which we can spare for exportation, most of which are very extravagant. We have examined the subject very carefully, and from the best data in our possession, such as the official reports from the patent office nnd the best estimates of consumption, we should judge that there will be from last year's crop a surplus of about twenty millions bushels of wheat and forty millions bushels of Indian corn for exportation.] About one half of this| has already been exported, and the probability is that full one half of the balance will be shipped between this and the first of September next. The shipmentsof other grains have been and will continue to be, very limited compared with those of wheat nnrl TnHinn rnm The exportation of such a large amount of grain, and the high prices realized for a large per cent of the shipments, cannot but have a very favorable influence upon the prosperity of the country generally, upon the producing classes particularly, and through them upon the financial condition of the Western States. The absence of an extensive foreign demand for our agricultural products, has kept prices so much ' reduced, that the producers generally have had pretty hard times, and the improvement both in prices and demand has been a perfect god-send to them. The external demand in likely to continue large for some time; and if prices keep up in the neighborhood of current rates, the agricultural classes will soon be relieved from the depression which has so long weighed ,heavily upon them. The season is rather backward, but the weather is favorable for our winter crops. Corn has not been put into the ground yet in this part of the eountry, but there is plenty of time, and there is every probability of a very large breadth of land I being appropriated to that crop, on account of the high prices compared with other grains. Sinoclxr Circumstance.? A singular circumstance occurred to the steamer Oregon,on her passage from Stonington to New York, on the morn tng ot rne ^tn inst. wtien on Huntingdon one of her injection pipes suddenly became stopped, making the engine falter considerably. Mr. Lockwood, the assistant engineer, observed the circumstance immediately and opened the spare injection pipe, and directed the attention of the chief engineer, Mr. Vanderbilt, to the stopping of the other one. Mr. Vanderbilt supposed the stoppage was occasioned by the boat going over some seaweed, and would soon get clear again. It not doing so, however, he examined the cau?e of the stoppage when the boat arrived in New York. After taking off the iniertion valve and a portion of the pipe, he found in it, tight up against the guard of the valve, a large duck, weighing seven pounds, which had been drawn into it by the force of the vacuum created by the engine. Mr. Vanderbilt thinks rhat the duck must have dived when the boat approached it, as when it was found its head was 'ownwnrds, with its back towards the how of the ssel. The duck will be stuffed, and kept-as a iriositv. x FoaitiGN Nawa.?We are indebted to the ii - s of Capt.

TWO DAYS LATER FROM EUROPE. THE LATEST COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE* Affairs in Spain. He. He. He. The splendid steamer Sarah Sands, Captuin Thompson, arrived yesterday from Liverpool, whence she sailed on the 6th inst. She has forty-five cabin, and one hundred and twenty-three second cabin passengers. She experienced continued heavy Westerly winds ; had been short of coul for the last seven days, and was therefore obliged to extinguish half her furnaces., The intelligence received by this steamer is not of much importance, but we deemed the desire of the merchants to obtain the latest intelligence, whether important or not, of sufficient induce mem 10 issue uie marat'i news in an r.xira Herald. This w<* did yesterday afternoon. The London Observer of Sunday, the 4(h inst., states that the returns of the Quarter's Revenue will show a considerable increase under the heads of Customs and Excise; an improvement under the head of Stamps; and an undiminished Revenue from the Property und Income Tax. .The profound disgust produced in the mind of the young Queen of Spain, by the vile intrigues of which she his been the victim, has caused her to dismiss the Sotoniayor Ministry, at the earliest moment possible, I and to appoint a Liberal Ministry with M. Pacheco at its head. This is, for the present, the downfall of the influence of Louis Philippe and Queen Christina in Spain, und the triumph of the nntionul und native interest, the only interest which England has ever supported. Jt will probably leud to an entire change iu the system of government. Leman Kede, the author and comedian, isdead. Emighatiox.?Upwards of 6,000 German emigrants have, within the last fortnight, passed through Cologne, on their way to Bremen. Havre and Antwerp, where they will take their departure for America. The greater part of them Heemed to be rather well off. The town of Menden whs lately so full of emigrants that It resembled the camp of a wandering tribe; the streets were literally crammed with baggage and people waiting for the steamers . It is calculated that 130,000 Germans will emigrate this year. The desire to emigrate has extended to districts in Germany where it was never before felt, and amongst others to the rich and fertile Saxon province of Prussia. The Nxirembtrg Correspondent states that the wnoie 01 me iniunuuui ^six nunureu; 01 me village 01 Meirnbrersen, In Electoral Hesse, are about to emigrate to America. Extensive Fibe neab London Bhidoe.?This morning, about a quarter past three o'clock, a most alarming Are was discovered in the extensive promiaei occupied by. and belonging to, Mr. Alderman Humphrey, M.P.. situate near the foot of London Bridge, on the Southwark side of the river. The building was known as the Kent and Sussex Wharf, and was stocked with shipping provisions, the greater portion of which have boon entirely consumed; but wo are happy to say no life was lost, or the least injury occasioned to any or the firemen. The premises were insured in the rhcenix. but whether to the full extent of value is not stated. The flames were totally extinguished by six o'clock this morning, but how they originated, remains at present a mystery.? London Standard, April 5. A Are, considerable in extent, occurred in the neighboring town of Ternlgerode. The Are broke out in a baker's shop, where trial was being made of a new oven. The progress of the flames, rendered fiercer by a strong west wind, was so great that in two hours upwards of J44 houses were burnt down. Notwithstanding every exertion, the tire was still burning up to the time this account was written. Owing to the speed with which the flames spread, it was with dlfliculty most of the inhabitants escaped; and it is feared several men, who are missing, seven children, and a servant girl have perished. The number of Irish who came from Ireland into Liverpool during the month of March is 50,100; above 3500 came over last Sunday. Tho expense of maintaining them is between A600 and A'700 per week. Large sheds, ' capable of holding between 400 and 500 fever patients, have been hired in Great Howard street, at a rent of A'900 per annum, and additional fover sheds are to be built near the Fever Hospital. The dead are taken up b v the relatives to the workhouse cemetery at all hours or tho dav, sometimes at night, in coflfns sometimes nailed and sometimes not nailed, and if the gates happen to be closed they are left outside or put over the wall. Some of the medical men, frightened by tho number of patients, are resigning their situations, though tVal. tttimKa. KoS tu.oti an.l ..1.11 tlon&l number must be appointed. Ireland. The Cork Examintr say?" 178 persons died in the workhouse for the week ending Monday, March 29. There are at present 8224 in thu bouse. and 628 in the hospital. The Crown Solicitor for Cork says, that the anxiety of the prisoners at the assise for that county is, not that they should be acquitted, but that they should be found guilty ! The learned gentleman has made a report to that effect ts Government The jails of the county are crowded by a class of offenders created by the famine.'' The following is an extract from a letter, dated Dublin. April 3?" There appears to be much less of actual famine, although extreme destitution still prevails in various districts, but generally throughout the oountry pestilence It at work, and in the workhouses typhus fever exists to an alarming extent." The tCilktnny Journal says?" There are about 700 paupers in the hospital of the workhouse. 600 of whom are in fever. 77 fever patients were admitted from the last board day to this." Generally, in most of the oounties, the tillage of the land has been well attended to ; but, even up to this hour, there are vast tracts totally neglected. Many more landlords have supplied sesd on loan ; but in parts of Mayo. Roscommon. Sligo, Tipperary, and other counties, cultivation Is still very backward." France. We learn by a communication made by M. Dubois, the deputy of Havre, to the Chamber of Commerce of that place, that a clause to the following effect will be embodied iu the forthcoming law on French customs, vis. : All bar Iron, sheet iron, sine (whether rolled or not), hemp, and tlax, if to be used in the construction or repair of French merchant vessels, may be brought Into the country free of duty, * Italy. The alarm and agitation created at Rome by the establishment of the censorship have been considerably tranquiliced l>y the character of the individuals who are to exercise its functions. Contrary to what was expected, the board is composed chietly of the laity and of individuals known for their enlightened and moderate opinions. They are the Marquis Antici. the Abbe Coppi, and MM. Bettl and Vannutelli, the latter a lawyer. The report of an intended intervention by Austria in Tuscany, is daily becoming more certdin. The intention Is said to be to land 3,000 Austrians in Elba, which is part of the territory of the duchy of Tuscany.so that they may be brought into the Italian territory at a moment's notice. In I'iedmont. Tuscany, and the Roman states, the most lively apprehensions aro entertained, and it is feared that, notwithstanding his enlightened and liberal opinions and intentions. i'iuslX will not long be able to resist the Austrian inlluence, especially as that influence is, to say the least, connived at by M. Guizot aud his colleagues. Saxon jr. The extraordinary session of tlio ( hamborg of Saxony was closed ou the '14 th. Thie reunion was the first which haa been held since Saxony obtained a constitution.

Portugal. Orders were sent to Portsmouth and 'Woolwleh for the embarkation of a battalion of marines for Llabon. and we believe the same order haa been forwarded to Plymouth and Chatham, The Woolwich and Portsmouth detachments embarked this afternoon, in the Sidon. steam frigate, and left instanterfor their destlna. tion. The Sidon is ordered to return to England immediately after the disembarkation of the troops From the above orders and movement, it is plainly stated that English interference haa been aolicited by the t^neen of Portugal to bring to a speedy close tbe long-pending and dangerous differences which have torn her kingdom. Huaata and Clrraasln. The Russian government has officially declared to the cabinets of Vienna and Berlin, that, for the future, no foreign officer will be allowed to take part In the campaigns of ths Russian troops in the Caucasus, unless he will consent to be naturalised, and to take an oath of Tile Lolnrt Financial Advices.

The Bourse opened at about the closing price* of yosterday, and for a time appeared to be somewhat weighed on by the arrival of tho English papers with a full; this feeling, howevor. soon wore off, and prioes kept steadily advancing to the close, when threes were oalled at 7bf. 76c. and lives at I I6f.70c.

Oves, not quoted. [From the London New*. April ft] The Increase of nctlvo circulation in tbe Hunk of Lowland i* explained by the ini:rcu*e of ' other " securities and the decruaso of private deposits. The amount to which these " other " securitica, consisting of hilla discouuted and loan* on securities. had attained at the date, could hardly fail to have excited aome misgivings in the bank parlor, in view of the constunt egress ol hard money and the decreaso of the reserve fund, lift bo re referred to. The return* for the week now ended, which will appear in the Gazrilt of ! ridny next, *ill comprise a large proportion. though not perhaps the whole of the specie Insured for shipment by the Cambria (teamer, leaving Liverpool on .Monday, and by the Sarah Sands on Wednesday, for the l.'nited States, estimated ut about jt'800.000. This specie would be drawn from the bank by the double action of checks on private deposit or current account, and securities discounted A further drain upon private deposits, with un increase of "other'' securities, may. therefore, be looked for. unless meantime loans and bills shall have been running out, and not repluced to the extent, and privata deposits reinforced from other quarters. In the absence, positive or partial, of these countervailing causes, a further diminution of the reserve fund may be anticipated. Although no particular importance need be attached t? the fact of a decrease in the reserve of notes and coin in the banking department to below five millions, which Is the limit of safety arbitrarily assigned upon some square rule principlo to the reserve of notes alone, yet, if tbe activo note circulation is to be kept up to its present (published) average standard by discounts and loaus, with tho liabilities of deposits payable on demand, and bank post bills due from day to day, attaching, it must behove the directors to look to the reserve fund which is to answer contingencies. Five millions and a half may be amply sufficient to meet all demands upon tho average calculation of ordinary times, and even four millions might, in such cue, fairly represent the casual probable claims of about seventeen millions of deposits and bank bills. But these are not ordinary timos. and the bank is, therefore, the more bound In the obligation not to be found at fault upon any extraordinary pressure upon its deposits account or stock of metallic values. Wo huve. however, no doubt that the directors are fully aware of their position. and that the returns of the present and next week will place them as closely in harmony, with respect to reserves, deposits and other securities as they should be. The recent movement for checking the operations of the discount houses,may bo acoepted as proof that aforecasting line of policy had been entered upon, of which that step was the first overt indication since the last elevation of the minimum rate of discount. The full complement of that policy has yet to be developed,but It does not require much sagacity to foresee that it is but the preliminary to the more general restrictive measure of an advance In the minimum rate of interest, the unit of whirh, to be more effective, will probably not be fractionally split as before. Blame has been imputed because the rate of interest was not raised at once, preferentially to the more graduated resolution of placing the discount houses under greater control; and it is asserted without sufficient reason or knowledge that less discomposure would have been occasioned by tho former than the latter procedure. Much an assortion is entirely erroneous. The limit imposud upon the discount hooacs will doubtless affect the money operations of this city, and such large commercial capitals as Liverpool. Man Clltmvr, KC., UUt IU VUU IUtUSB UI lue CUIUUIUUliy aim 1/1 tho country It can make comparatively little or no difference. Tho reverse would be the case with an advance in the rate of interest, whioh tells equally upon all interests, general and local alike. Between the two the(e is the same difference as between treating for topical and general disease of the body. There is an impression in intelligent quarters that in this beginning with the discount houses, a significant hint, aH one leading inducement to it, was meant to be conveyed of bank disfavor towards cotton bills and Liverpool cotton speculators. Trammelled as th6 bank is by currency laws, and crotchets more fancifully experimental than practical, its course has. to our thinking, been hitherto as prudently as possible conformable to the intent and spirit of the law. In that sense, and with that opinion, we have thought it right to suggest the postponement of any further official enhancement of interest rates until the payment of dividends should have commoncod. or be on the eve of commencing. Review of Use British Corn Trade during the Past Week. The weather has throughout the week been very cold and ungenial," and on several occasions sharp nightfrosts have been experienced; vegetation has, consequently been kept back, and from present appearances there is not much prospect of an early season. We do not. however, regard this as an evil, a premature luxuriance being generally attended with danger. It is. of course, at present impossible to ascertain whether the young wheat has been injuriously affected by the low range of temperature; but from the hardy character of the plant, we feel little apprehension on that hand, and the only circumstance that can be viewed as unfavorable is the probability of the next harvest being late, which might, in the position of the country in regard to stocks, prove very inconvenient. The sowing of spring corn, having received but little interruption, noariy the whole or the month of March having been highly auspicious for field work, most of the barley and oats have been got in, and great progress lias likewise boen made with bean and pea planting. These Important labors having been nearly brought to a close, farmers have again directed their attention to thrashing ; and it is probable that an increase will shortly take place in tho deliveries of grain from the growers The time has now arrived for testing whether the stocks of wheat in the hands of the producers be rcall v short, for there can be no question that if thev are holders to any great extent thev will avail themselves of the very first opportunity or turning their wheat into cash ? Tho inducements to realise arc the still high value of the article and tho state of uncertainty felt as to the future; if, therefore, the markets in tho agricultural districts be not plentifully supplied during the month, we Bhall no longer entertain a doubt on the question of stocks, but look upon it as the strongest possible evidence that tho quantity remaining iu tho country is actually as small as represented. The regular course of the trade has be on more or less interrupted this week in' consequence of several of the markets having been held off the accustomed day (owing to Oood Kriday), and the amount of business done has not boen important. The value of wheat has, as might have been expected, felt the effect of the recent fall at Mark I,ano, and prices have tended downwards in all parts of the kingdom. At Liverpool further arrivals of flour and Indlun corn have come to hand from America, but the reeeipts of foreign wheat have not been large.either there or elsewhere; whilst the demand for export, though on a somewhat decreased scale, has nevertheless continued. The advices from the port just named are not quite so dull as last week, the important reduction which has lately occurred there having attracted buyers from the interior. In wheat a fair amount of business appears to have been done on Tuesday, at rates 3d. to 6d. per 701bs. below those current on that day se'unlght; and subsequently u portion of that abatement was recoversd. several sale? having been made on Thursday on terms not obtainable earlier in the week. United .States flour, which was, it will be recollected, at ono period of lust week sold at Liverpool at 36s., has since been in request at 37s. per bbl., and many holders have even refused to accept the latter price. Indian corn seems also to have met with attention at improving rates. 60s. to Ais. per 460 lbs. having been paid for fine, and 46s. to 60s. for mixed American. At the leading towns In Yorkshire stocks of wheat are unusually small; and the supplies having barely kept pace with the demand (tardy as has been the latter) sellers have declined submitting to u greater reduction than Is to 2s per quarter. The business done at Hull and Leeds on Tuesday was, however, very circumscribed. At Wakefield, on Thursday, tho operations were also on a restricted scale, and the few sales of wheat effected wore at prices Is to 3s per qr below those current the preceding week. Tne accounts from Bristol. Birmingham, Gloucester, and other towns in the vicinity of these places, are of a similar character to the reports above referred to; but whilst there but bocn no (peculation, and the buyers for consumption have confined their purchases to an narrow limits as has been permitted by their pressing wnnl s. there has, on the other hand, in most eases been a degree of firmness on the part of holders, which has prevented prices giving way moru than a couple of shillings per quarter. In the north the weather has been even more severe than with us, and the letters from Scotland speak of rather sharp froets; this, however, had produced no influence on the corn markets, and quotations of wheat, as well as prices of spring corn, were lower at Edinburgh and Glasgow on Wednesday than on that day week Krom Ireland we learn that Indian corn, which has become the staple article of consumption with the poorer classes of that country, had been freely offered at about M)s per qr. at several of the principal ports, and that a corresponding abatement had occurred in the interior This great-fall has tended to alleviate the distress; and as further supplies of this useful article of food are likely to be sent from Liverpool and other English ports to the sister Isle, besides what may still bo ou passage from America, the Black Sea, and the Mediterranean, prices of Indian corn will probably remain at about their present level The arrivals of wheat coastwise into London have been moderate; and the show of samples at .Mark Lauc ou Wednesday, by land carriage from Kssex, Kent, and Suffolk was small The creator portion of the wheat exhibited consisted of white, and a* the French buyer* have all along directed their attention more to rod, there wa* not much done for export; the town miller* were, however, pretty free purchaser* at Monday's docllne. and a fait clearance wa* made. Good qualities of foreign red wheat were inquired for on Frenth account, but the high pretension* of holder* prevented extensive transaction* We stated lost Monday that sellers of foreign had refused on that occasion to submit to n reduction corresponding to the decline on Knglish. and on Wednoxday they showed less Inclination toconocdc than previously, or bargains to some extent might have been concluded. The arrivals from abroad have, during the week ending this (Saturday) evening, consisted of 10,71!) qrs., whilst the export* have, according to the bills of eutry. amounted to fl,l 11 qrs.

The show of foreign oats beii g large, and mere than adequate to meet the wants of the buyer*, the trade was very dull at a decline in value of from (id. to Is. per quarter, at which depression very little progress was made in sales. The quantity ef Ucuus in the market was by no means large; yet all the kinds met u slow inquiry, at late rates. Peas were very dull, but not cheaper.

At this day's market there was a very short supply of English wheat, which waa taken off at the currency of this day week. There was a better sale for foreign to eountry buyers at fully late rates.

Liverpool Coaw Market?Monday, April 8.?The reported arrivals of drain and Flour since Tuesday last, are very moderate, but the wind now being favorable, we may expect uio-t vessels in that are close at hand. i no iaie ruuucuon ni our prices nas nnracieu Duyers from vnriouN quarters, anil rather an extensive business bag been done in Wheat and Flour. Beside* a good demand for shipment coastwise, the Interior millers have taken largely of barrelled Hour' at 37*. (3d. to 3Hs. per 190 lbs. for Western Canal, which is an improvement of Is per barrel within the week.? Wheat has also moved more freely, but without amendment in price; indeed, for both wheat and tlour holders have liberally met the demand. Several Irish orders and buyers of Indian corn having appeared, there has been u re-action on Tuesday's quotation of 3s to ft* per quarter; good American corn is now firmly held at 5*ls per 480 lbs. In the other articles of I lie trade very little lias been transacted, and oats, barley, beans, and peas remain without alteration in vuluc. [From tho Liverpool Times, April <>.] The condition of the trade and commerce of the country during the tirst quarter of the present year, has been far from favorable; and though the last arrivals bring the gratifying news of a very decided improvement in I lio American and F.astern markets, yet we fear that the progress of amelioration will ho slow, until the result of the next harvest is ascertained.? Should it realise the hopes that we are justified In founding on tile great increase in the quantity of wheat and spring corn sown in this country; ou the fineness of the seedtime, both In tho Autumn oftust your uud the Spring of the present; and on the present appearance of the young wheat in many districts, we shall then obtain effectual relief. We nrc'uot. indeed, in tho number of those who believe that one good harvest will give us low prices, and still less of those who bellcvo that we shall sec low prices previous to that harvest; but still we are convinced that the high pricos which our farmers have obtained for their last year's grain, joined to that thorough frightening which they got during the great corn-law battle, have roused them to exertions such as they never made before, and that they have already produced a grout improvement in English agriculture, tlieeflects of which will ho felt in the next harvest. If we inay judge from what wo have ourselves seen, during a late tour through Lancashire,* Cheshire, the West Hiding of Yorkshire. Westmoreland, and Cumberland, wo should say there is this year a great increase in the extent of tillage and draining, and great improvements in the mode of laying out fields, and of performing all manner of funning operations. Tho quantity of land sown with wheat appears to us to be greater than wo ever knew it to be before: there is a sufficient plant in the ground; and it presents every appearance of health. Should this promise of increase in the homo supply be realised, a good harvest would give us a return of moderate. though not of low prices. Until wo either obtain a great increase of home-grown grain, or an entire change in tho monetary system, the pressure on the country is likely to he very scvegt.*. The Bank Directors have not. it is true, again raised the rate of interest on discounts, as it was feared that they would do. but they have so restricted their assistance to bill brokers and the public as to produce precisely tho same effect as If they had. Nor Is it easy to sec when or where this is to end. Further supplies of foroigu grain are absolutely necessary for the sustenance of the people, and as they ran only be obtained by further exportat ion* of specie, it is clear that tho pressure must continue. Whatever may be the mcr.ts of the present monetary system in other respects and at other times. It is clear t lia't just uow ii is aiuuug commercial rum ro wini 01 rooa. If it wax not for the sec crity with which the bank is working iho Bcrcw, there it every leason to believe that trade v mi J at present bo in a satisfactory state. There is a deci ded improvement in business, both iu the cotton ami woollen districts, arising from an improved demand both foreign and domestic. During tbe last week tbe corn trade has passed through a severe ordeal. Lurly In the week a panic prevailed in the London market, which extended to most of the country markets; hut on Thursday and Saturday a reaction took place iu public opluion. India corn has risen again to about S2s, having beon dowu to 4tix. VVe understand that tbii excellent description of food is beginning to be consur ed extensively in tbe N'orth of England, as well as in Ireland. At'l?r several months of cessation, buyer* of wheat and flour from the interior have again begun to show themselves in the Liverpool markets, and to purchase American flour freely. \v'e see from the last circular of Messrs. Sturgo. of Birmingham, that the supply of foreign wheat at Gloucester, ut the present time, is 2.000 quarters ' ugainst 70.000 quarters at this timo lust yeur '1 lie supplies of wheat and flour in Liverpool, ou the 31st .March 1846. were,In bond. 218 113 quarters of wheut.aud438 627 barrels of flour; free, (about) 1 .">0.000 quarters of wheat, and 200.000 barrels of flour. The stock of wheat at present is supposed to be from 00 to 70,000 quarters, and that of Hour about .'.00 000 barrels. Tbo Turkish goycruunot bus prohibited the exportation of grain from lateral of the principal ports of th? Turkish empire. The most important of these ere Smyrna, Silistria. and dalonioa. The tirst of these ports hnsgenerally shipped a considerable quantity of grain, the produce of Anatolia; the second is a depot for the Ualgarinn grain, which is sent dowu the Danube to Galatr.; and the third Is tbe port for the shipment of the grain of Homselia it appears tiial the Greek Chambcrsare also discussing tbe question of prohibiting the exportation of grain from that country. Tbe Juurnal dtt Drbats contains what some of our con temporaries call an uluruiist article ou tbe present state and the future prospect of the supply of food in France. Tbe principal object of it is to show that this year's potato crop is likely to be very deficient, owing to the scarcity and the dcariiesa of the seed, and the un willingness of the farmers to risk another crop, after two years of failure, 1 he Uchjls contends that the certainty of a deficiency of the supply of potatoes, and the entire uncertainty as to the productiveness of the grain crops, render it necessary to suspend the duties on tbe admission of foreign gram for another year?that is to say.until September, I -18 In support of this argument, the Dehiilii states that the potato crop is of tne utmost importation, und that if it ir> lout n substitute must bo found in foreign grain. Its produce is estima ted ut from a hundred to a tyindred and twouty millions of hectolitre*. equal to three hundred milliona of bushels. The writer contends that thu loss of so enormous a quantity of food wilt expose Franco to absolute famine, unless means arc taken to supply its place It is generally understood that this article is put forth to explain the motives and defend the policy of the government in proposing a further suspension of tlio corn laws. [From the Belfast Corn Circular, April I.] Although a large breadth of I md has been sown, yet the cold ungenitd weather which tins prevailed during the month of March has retarded vegetation, and all that ran be said for the spring crops is, that they hare been committed to the ground, .perhaps, earlier than usual, but, certainly, up to the prcsuut lime, they have made but little progress ; whilst the winter-sown wheat, though healthy enough, is not in a forward position During the past mouth wo had weighty and numerous arrivals of breads!ulTs. chiefly from America and the Mediterranean, much of which has come into the hands of parties uot previously In the trade, who, finding that their expectations of profit are not very likely to lie realized, have, in many cases, submitted to take such prices as could bo procured, and in Indian corn particularly prices have undergone a change equal to about 4i> to I'd per ton from the highest point, making ours, at the present moment, perhaps, the cheapest market for corn in Ireland. The decline In wheat during the month lias been about ?1. in barley ?2. in oats ill to ?2, and In oatmeal ?2 per ton. '1 ho lowering of the price of breadstuffs seems to have turned the attention of dealers and farmers to the propriety of sow lug Ihix seed; and the inquiries and Iraii!actions of this week lead to the hope that this important crop is lilu ly to meet yet with the ttentlon it merits.

Leeds, April S.?There has been more business done since this week at the Cloth Halls in low priced goods, calculated for the United States market, but In other sorts there has not been any improvement. Prices continue firm, and the stocks on hand below an average. Business has been a little better in the warehouses; the business doing is with the country drapers. There is also a much better prospect, in the opinion of the trade, that the shipping business will be good for the fall trade. Foreign Wool Trade, Leeds, April 1.?There has been a little more animation in the trado during the past week. Prices remain firm, and the prevailing opinion is, that an advance upon last year's rates will be generally obtained at the next German fairs. Stocks are at present very low, both hero and in Germany. Bradford, Thursday, April 1.?Wool?The demand during the week past has been very similar to several preceding; the inquiries being chiefly for full-bred wools, for which late rates are steadily maintained. Nolls and brokes are in full request, without change in price. Yarus?The transactions In yarns, both for heme consumption and export, are on the increase, and the spinners generally working to order, with small stocks on hand. On some kinds a shade more is demanded. Pieces?A fair business continues to be done in Orleans and Coburgs. without change in prices. Neat styles, suitable for the autumn, in fancy goods, are inquired for by the shipping houses. Nottingham, AprllU.?The state of the cotton hose trade in the town has a shade improved, but in many of the villages the depression is severe : in the eastern part of the county and In Debvshlre the wrought hose trade is dull, but the hands, with some exceptions, are better employed than they are in those districts where they are engaged on slop and inferior quality hosiery. But we aro sorry to add that there is very little Improvement in the fine hosiery department. The drawer branch is in many quarters in a depressed condition. The cotton glove trade, though dull, is yet better than most branches, but it Is not so brisk as to feel the approach of spring, as in some former years. The silk glove trade has a shade revived. The fancy hose trade, whother of silk or ootton, is at present in a very declining state, but should fashion change, they would have a rich harvest, as the French encourage fancy hosiery to an extent not known in England. The bobbinnet trade, both for fancy and plain goods, is yet but very dull, with a shade, however, ,.r TV... n..nA.I?u .fmn.lin nn/l In/... is still progressing, and is likely to go on, as a very wide field is open for ingenuity and speculation. We regret to report that as yet there is no decided improvement in the warp lace trade, though we eannot but think that there is gTeat hope of its resuscitation. Leicester, April 1.?But little business has been done in the warehouses this week. The straight-down hose branch is extremely flat, and a great many frames are laid down. The continuance of cold weather, added to the high price of provisions, injures the spring demand, and the shopkeepers generally complain; but little is, as yet, being doue for the export trade. There is no alteration in yarns. Wools are more in request, and are sold a shade better. Rochdale Flannel Market, April S.?The flannel market to-day was dull, and in some instances manufacturers were obliged to submit to a email reduction in the prices of some descriptions of flanuol*. The demand lor ail sorts was limited, and the manufacturers' profits who attend the Blackwatcr market,were never known to be so little as at present. The wool market was dull, and not much business done. Prices generally were the same as last week. | (Manchester, Monday, April 0.?This being Easter >1011 day. there was little or nobnsiness transacted The recent advance in the price of cotton has tended materially to limit operations, as it has compelled producers to demand higher rates, whioh in hut very few coses have been obtaiued. It is muoU to be regretted that any advance in the price of the raw material should have takan place, at a time when it was found extremely difficult to effect sains even at the ruinously low prices which have been current for many weeks past. This being a holiday week, it Is not expected that much business will bo done. The Iron Trade.?Birmingham, Saturday, Aprils.? . During the present week, tbo usual preliminary meoiiug of the ironmasters of Houth Staffordshire, Shropshire, and bast Worcestershire, has been held at Dudley, at which It was resolved, not wit ha tending gome Inducement* to an advance, that no alteration of price should take place at the ensuing quarter day. Thl* will be deemed by the hard and hollow ware manufacturers, and the factors of Birmingham and Wolverhampton generally. a highly prudent and satisfactory determination. There can be no question that an advauce in the price of iron would have immediately led the workpeople to demand an Immediate advance of the rate of wages, for even at the present timo a great portion of the iron and coal men of these districts, howevor ungrounded and unreasonable may be their complaints, are illsatlsfled with the existing rates of remuneration. It is said that the Welch master* are called upon sooner than was anticipated to test the soundness of the resolutions adopted by them at Kadley's Hotel some weeks ago. Private letters received at Birmingham yesterday, mention that the workmen have given notice of a strike, to l ake place on Saturday next, and already a number of furnaces have been blown out in anticipation of a general cassation of labor on the part of the hands engaged in the manufacture of iron in South Wales. The Mexican War in Massachusetts.?We have been repeatedly asked to notice the resolutions recently passed by the Legislature of the State of Massachusetts, deprecating the war with Mexico, and refusing to thank Generul Taylor for his brilliant victories. We do not think it worth our while to notice these resolutions if they are too silly and ridiculous to receive the ittention of any newspaper. Very Late from Venezuela.?We have received by the Paez, La Prenza, El Liberal, and El Commercial from Caraccas and Porio Cabello to the Oth inst., inclusive. All was quiet in the country under the present energetic administration. Sporting Intelligence.

Of Mr Forrest's pcrformaDoe, It is only necessary to say that it was in his best style.

Mysterious Disa'fpearance.?The son of a highly respectable citizen, living in the upper part of the city, has most mysterionsly disappeared, it seems that he was a young man, aged about 2d years, not long since having returned from the country. His father n ad advanced him funds and set him up in business as a merchant.? He boarded with his parents, and was represented to be exeecdlngly temperate, steady and attentive to his business, which he managed with prudence and eare. It seems about a fortnight since, one morning ho dressed himself before breakfast to go but, as it was supposed, on buslnoss. since when he has not been seen or heard of. His father proceeded to tho store and found his cash accounts regularly entered up to the evening before, and also about $1500 in the safe! When he left he had an his ordinary business clothes, his liner clothing being left at. his father's, and It seems be only had about $13 in cash on his person.

Iwqi'est.?On the morning of the 13th Instant, John Farrol, a native of Ireland, aged 31 years, then residing at No 339 Mulberry street, while* laboring under an aberration of mind, made a desperate attempt to eommit suicide by cutting his throat with a razor, In the accomplishment of which he was frustrated by a parson lu the house, who suspected his desigus and watched his movemcnts. He was eonvcyod to the City Hospital after inflicting a severe wound, and for some time it was expected that he would recover. Coroner Walters held an inquest upon his body yesterday, when the following verdict was rendered by the jury, that the deceased came to his death by a wound on the throat, inflicted by bis own hand, causing erysipe'as. of which he died. A man named Fdward Croghan, was killed on Saturday evening last at Lowell, the cars from Concord accidentally passing over him. It appears, that finding himself in a dangerous situation, he was so bewildered that hu seemed not to know which way to turn, although there was plenty of room on either side of the track, if he had but stepped out of the way.

Railroads introduced into a city under any circumstances, a: a an evil which should lie avoided if possible. The thousands of carriagr*, carts, wagons, and vehicles of every description passing and repsasing ill every direction, in a word, explains the reaaou why. As we understand it is the desire of the company to advanee soine distance ill the city, we know of no place offering half the facilities, as the foot of Canal street?the streets in the vicinity are wide and easy of access in every direction, aud were Canal street opened through the Bowery to the eastern portion ol the city, as itioou must he, a glance at the map must convince every one, that for superiority of location it is unsurpassed. The Clinton Country Market is lint very little used, in consequence of being separated from the meal ana fish mar kcts by Caual street, it could be converted, at a few dollars exprose, into an ample store house.
