In England. however though there has been a fall in the price of wheat, it lias not been such as toalloct. peroeptibly. the price of bread, or change the nspoet of things. I still believe that the calculations made in my last letter, will turn out. eventually to be correct, and that the scarcity uud high prices will continue until after harvest.

It Is thought that the remaining measures for Ireland will be hurried through, which, with the government education scheme, will fonn the only subjects of general interest with which it will be engaged previous to its final dl??olution ?for this is the last session of the septennial parliament. Home excitement has latclr been got up among those who do not belong to the Church of Knglaud, supported and established by law. in relation to the government scheme of publto education. In the I tilled .States the government Is in the hands of the people; but In England it is in the hands of the church aud the aristocracy. Itcnce it follows, that while in the United States education may lie made a government measure without daugur?in England on the contrary, to put the education of the people into the hands or the government, is to put it at once into the hands of the church. .And this is what is virtually about to be done. The consequences of this measure seem plain enough. The wholo rising generation will receive a religious church education. The dissenters, already few, divided, and without influence of any kind, will be almost, if not entirely, extinguished; and when the Church of England is quite ready to pass over to the Church of will hand over at the same time the English nation to the ancient religion, and all will be settled harmoniously, with a due regard to the fortunes and interests of the great folks in the garlics concerned in the compromise. As protestantism as become a mere oold, naked philosophy, of which virtue and good deeds are hardly considered to constitute a part, it is easy to sec that almost any superstition must, eventually, triumph over such cold-blooded infidelity. The dissenters. a? a body, have in this day no moral iufiuenoe whatever. The world has discovered w^at their ultra piety amounts to. and holds It in the contempt it has brought upon itself, and the consequence Is, their agitation and excitement against the government plan, meets with no sympathy, and is hardly noticed, while the government plan will be carried with triumphant success. There is little of general interest to communicate since my lost. The monetary crisis in London is getting worse and worse ; thousands of traders in these days of competition and display only carry on trade by regular loans, in advance of their expected profits, and money is getting tighter and tighter. The effeets will bo disas iruus, auu exteuu widely oror a great portion of the community, for money can hardly be got now at any rate, and oren where It can be, trade Is no depressed that no dependence can be bad upon future profile to meet inevitable payment*.

The poor girl has a hot place of It: it is subl that she has beeu so wearied out with tho cares of royalty, and the cabals and intrigues of the luterested courtiers who surround her, that she has almost contemplated an abdication of the throne, saving she would not mind giving it up to her cousiu. tne young pretender, son of Don Carlos. Meantime she has triumphed over the ministry, who at one time deAedber to brrface, and refused to give up their posts when she required it; and has thrown herself into the hands of the liberul parly.

Familiarity with many things.mny. and do doubt docs, produce contempt; but a familiarity with Vienna and the Yienneae, serves only to induci- a profound report, for the truth contain- l ed In thin pcop|e> ditty. The joy* of ilia carnival have tolled their last peal, and the musical fertivities of Leut arc in the full tido of happy execution. The travelling Musselinan wan not far out of the way when he named the period of the Carnival the craiy scnaon of the people who live towards the setting suu. and related of tbcra tbe most wonderful things to his listening brother Mussseliuru. whose very beards shook with marvel at the recital. At a certain period of the new-born year, says he, the serious Franks are suddenly attacked with a singular mania. They tie black, unseemly masks before their faces, put on' the moat outlandish dresses and costumes, and in short, die flgure themselves to surb an extent, that the father knows not his own child, and the brother cannot recogutso his own sister. Thus attired, they repair to certain I gorgeously deowrsted and brilliantly illuminated placet of resort, where, during the deafening noise of numberler* instruments, they jump about as if stark mad, until the perspiration streams from the entire body. This lasts for some weeks, when finally the mania having risen to the highest pitch, the poor, deluded souls hasten early, ou a certain morning, to tbe altars of their churches, where their priests strew ashes on their crasy heads; whereupon they suddenly return to reason and quietly resume their accustomed occupations, ue if nothing had taken place. 1 do not pretend to say that this unlet tourist has done justice to the Viennese, and merely relate bis story to give a spool men of tbe Ideas of an incorrigible Turk in relation to the pleasures of our 1'arnlval Wo see In his opinion the very symbol of K.aatern Inactivity and lasy case, end canuot but pity the being who does not admire the wl.dueea of the gallopade?the life of the reeling waits?the graceful movements of the polka, and the poetry of motion of tbe usxurka. The present carnival season has not lieen a very brilliant oue in the court circles, on Recount of the death of the Palatine of Hungary, who was closely related to the imperial bousu of Austria, and whicli circumstance clothed tbe entire court and nobility in deep black at an early period of the carnival. There was hut one of the brilliant court balls, for the magnificence of which Vienna is renowned. The nobility have sympathised with the court, and their select bails have been less numerous than usual If we turn to the other side of the picture. | however the people wlo>. by the war. never set-in inel- I auchuly about uuylbing ? we flud that the billof-l.irc lues been every way worthy of the guests.
