Highly Interesting Commercial Intelligence. ADVANCE IN THE CORN MARKETS. Pall in the Price of Cotton. Conspiracy Against the 7ope. Affairs on the Continent of Europe, &o., tie., Ac. The steamship llritnnnin, Captaim Harrison, taking the place of the Iliherr.ia, left Liverpool on the .|th inst.. and arrived at Boston at one o'clock yesterday morning, to the astonishment of all concerned. Our special telegraphic reporter sent the news to its over the lightning line, at the rate of one hundred and twenty-five and thirty letters or electrie sparks per tninute. The line, with Mr. Foss as operator at this terminus, worked charmingly. The intelligence is, of course, important. It is two weeks later. The price of cotton on the sailing of the Caledonia had a downward tendency. After her departure prices further declined. The market had become flat, the sales less, and operators not operating. There had been some fluctuation in the price of grain .and flour, during the mouth, but prices had settled down at 40s a 42s tor Western Canal flour. On the 3d instant, foreign wheat obtained an advance of fully 4s per quarter.? The flour trade was very active, and a rise of 2s. per barrel was established, whilst Indian corn was sold at 5fis. to 58s. for white, and 58s. to 60s. for yellow. The amount of breadstufls which the Americans have sent to the starving Irish, has been the universal theme of eulogy in Ireland, and of warm and generous sympathy in England. The funds had continued uninterruptedly n | downward course. The bullion in the hank was still disappearing rapidly; the directors had been | more strinirent than ever. i The European Timet says since we alluded to the position of the Bank of England, matters hitd become worse, and the whole commercial ! world from Cornwall to Caithness, and from Cape Clear to the Ciant'a Causeway, were up in arms in respect to the monetary policy. The foreign events of the fortnight were not of striking interest. In Portugal the junta still kept the Queen's forces at bay. The insurgents were powerful, and too wealthy to be extinguished by force. The Queen of Spain and her husband showed symptoms of enduring each other. They had appeared together in public, and the reconeiliuticn is said to have given rise to great rejoicings. >-. Three men, whom the French court sentenced to death for their participation in some of the corn riots at Bosancius, were executed on the public square of that town on the 12th ult. before i an immense concourse of people. The government education scheme had passed to u third reading in the House of Commons, nf- 1 ter a three nights' debate, almost without oppo- ( sition. A few days ago not fewer than two thousand emigrants sailed from Hamburg for New Vork. In some parts of the country emigration is car- ' ried on to nn alarming extent. Whole villages i go away en mamr, and entire districts become 1 depopulated. j The latest accounts from Ireland represent the > mortal career of the I.ord Lieutenant as rapidly drawing to a close. The Dublin Evening Poet holds out no hope of his recovery. The papers contain the advices by the overland mail from India and China. From the former the most important intelligence seems to he the death of Karnr Khan, son of Dost Mahomet. It is said the business at Canton, had lessened by the New Year holidays occurring in February, iind the failure of two important Chinese firms. The potnto blight has reappeared in the neighhnrhnnrl nf . O'Connell was sinking dailv. The accounts wliich came lo linnd through the medium of the French papers show that his earthly career is drawing to a close. The weather had undergone a favorable change. Vegetation was making rapid progress. The account ot the wheat and oat crops are highly encouruging, and even in regard to potatoes very favorable accounts are received. i Kouie curiosity hit been excited at ( ork by the arrival. from New Orleans. of ? ship wholly manned by , blacks I Jenny I.ind. about whom the I.onilon musical world is i going mad. is to appear this evening (Tuesday i at h?r 1 Majesty's Theatre. 1 Mr. Robert < '.

The smaller class of farmers, who have suffer I'd so terribly by the destructive failures of last year, are plucking up courage to try their favorite root once more.

The hill relativ c to the establishment of regular steam communication between Havre and New York, lias received the King's assent, and is now the law of the land. Tlie steamers are called the i bristoplie Coloinb. the Canada, the Darieu. and the I Ilea. The company engages to keep up a regular forluigiilly communication between Havre and New Y ork, to convey the mail, and to render some other services to the government. The company has long been pushing forward its preparation* with great activity; and it is now advertising that the first voyage to New York will lie made between the 'J0th and 3Uth of May. This new line of steamers will cause a very serious loss to the Liverpool line*, for it will luevitubly deprive them of all the passenger* and merchandise to snd from France. It will also deprive the l.ugllsh post olttce of several thousand* per annum, which it received forthe conveyance of the French mails. Complaint* have been made in the Havre und other journals, that the Americans have Imposed u tax upon foreign shipping arriving on the roast* of California.?

The Journal del Debaii coulinars to urge the goverumeut. with great earnesluess. to uaintaiu the lnws at present in operation relative to the importation of corn and provisions; that is. to continue to allow grain and food to enter France at a mere nominal duty. The agricultural interest, howevor, protests against such a concession. and the government thus far seems disposed to side with it. The merchant* uud inhabitants of Havre have just sent u petition to the Chamber, praying that corn, cattle, and salted invut. may be ullowed to be imported free of duty. In its articles the liebals bus strongly insisted ou the great advantage it would be to the working <das?es of France if they wors enabled to obtain the salted pork uud othur meat of the United States at a moderate ratu.
