President ad inltrim, to enforce the law, drew out the military and attacked the churches. thinking thereby to coerce the payment of the money. But there he reckoned without bis host, for the treasury being bankrupt, and the priests having all the money, they bought up the government officers and troops, and, by the aid of their money, induced them to "pronounce.'' We, as prisoners, changed owners during the revolution. Our change was truly farcical The government penitentiary, in which wo are confined, is commanded by a colonel in the army, assisted by another colonel, a lieutenant colonel, a captain, and two or three lieutenants. When we arrived at tills place, they had. as prisoners, some fifteen or more officers of the Mexican army, who wers confined here for crimes of 1 different kinds, among which may be enumerated rob- ' bory, house breaking.

He put a stop to the revolution, by turning against the government, which had done every tbiug that he had naked of them, and joined the priests, which was the strongest party.

[from the Montreal Herald, May 'lb 1 Our political changes since the last mail have been of importance, at least so far a* regards the position ot | parties. The death of Mr. Justice llagerman. one of the ludgeH in 'anada West, has made a rnrancy, which it is supposed will be tilled by the present Attorney General I for that part of the Province. As our Attorney* General are usually looked upon as the Premiers, of oourse , Mr. Draper's promotion, or expected promotien. a* the 1 case may be. will exercise a certain influence on the character of the proceedings in the House during theoomtng session Besides this change, others hare already taken place. Thus Mr. M'Donald, the representative for the city of Kingston, has bt^en named Itcceiver General This Is nouiuiHlly the highest tiiiaucial office in the Province. though the real work it performed uy the inspector (Jeneral Mr. M'Donald's character as a gentleman, and a politician, stands deservedly high; but with so many lawyers necessarily in the ministry, it is not difficult to seethe impropriety of adding another very young professional gentleman to them. The late Kecelver Ueueral, Mr. Morris, is to be ('resident ot tho Council, vacant by the resignation of Mr. Viger; and it is supposed that with this office will be associated that of the speakership of tho Legislative Council. In Lower Canada they are by no means so secure of retaining the votes of their own frieuds. From some unexplained cause they have offered the post of Solicitor General, (Last) to a lawyer, with no reputatiou, practising in a small country town, who has no influence with the French Canadians, to whom he is aUied by birth; aud who, previous to his desertion of that party, is known to have expressed himself in a most brutal manner aa to the British inhabitants of the Province No paper has yot dared to defend the nomination; and but one has offered to excuse it.

It is expu'otod that tho now Attorney lieneral (Kast) will resign in ponse'iuenro of this ill advised stroke, and judging from tho tono of the journal, which undertakes to defeud tho government, it is propared to give his office to tho person, who is at this momout opposing him at Mlssisqunl. Mr. Uadgley's return is, howover, considered certain, by ihe best informed people. The opcuing of the navigatlou this year has keeu rendered more dangerous than usunl by tho large quantities of ico that tno spring vessels have encountered on their voyage out. The Krromauga was in tho ice for six weeks. It is to bo foared that this prolongation of the usual ( nnflncment on shipboard will have uu injurious effect on the emigrants. Tho accounts already received are dreadful. About ono hundred and fifty deaths on the passage had been already announced ; forty or fifty dying in ouo ship, and to-day we have tho further disastrous Dews that seveuty deaths bare occurred on board the Cherokee. Upwards of 7000 emigrants have already arrived out. The Canadian press has continued to testify against any large government scheme for emigration. How, indeed, can it be expected that it should be agreeable to us to have persous seut here whom our neighbors in the States will not allow to land ? A proof of the advantage of the relaxation of onr sys lum or customs Is to he I'ound in the fact tbat bonded breadstuff*. brought into the province for exportation, are being aeut into the Atlantic citiei of tbu l ulled State* for sale. Thus Montreal has become, to aome extent. a warehousing port for wheat and flour, which waa grown, and which will be consumed, in n country from which she could lately onlv receive these good* upon payment of n heavy duty, i'ha phenomenon is something like that exhibited by England exporting aimilar merchandise in this year of unusual scarcity But, to increase our commerce to Its full extent, we have need of still greater freedom Our own Legislature must do its part; but the Imperial Uowrunicut must complete and render permanent, the freedom of navigation on the St. Lawrence, which it has already accorded partially, and for a tunc. It must allow loaded as well as light foreign Vessels to come to Montreal?it must permit foreign craft from inland, to descend to (Quebec, and from there to the sea, if necessary; and It must allow foreign sea going vessels coming to our river to load anything which is louud most advantageous. At this moment, we have vessels in the St. Lawrence from ports in tile United States, and several more arc coming. '1 hese are all British; hut the cause of their comiug here, is of course the expectation of nbtaiuing better freights than could he got where they were. This would influence Ainoriran vessels of the same class, in the same way; hut being restrained front loading timber?very much the larger part of our exports, they have a much worse chance in coming to seek freight We omitted to mention in our last, that the City Bank had declared a semi-annual dividencd ot 3 per cent.

Effect oj the Emigrant Law in Europe?Scarcity of Bread?Monetary Crisis?Railways as Employers of Labor?Cause of the Commercial Convulsion?State of the Manufacturing Districts?Corn Market. The new emigrant law of the State of New Vork has spread consternation and dismay, it may truly und without exaggeration lie said, over Kurope. Cities, towns, villages,whole districts, were preparing to move and emigrate to the United States, bringing with them all their property, the frugal hoard of many yeurs. accumulated Tor this purpose ; hut more important and more valuable than all the gold and silver sewed up in their clothes and fastened round their bodies In belts, was tliu labor and industry they were bringing, to rale*- grain and roots and rattle. where else naught but the giant trevs of the forest spread their fruitless branches, and useless or noxious herbage covered the ground. True it is. that auiong these masses of living wraith, and with these sturdy instruments of rirh production, there would lie here and there a sprinkling of some who went poor some who were wreak, iutirui and helpless, and to exclude these, the law In question hus been passed ; hut it is like as if a farmer should refuse to gather into his barns a rich tleld of corn, or wheat, because, toreooth. there w as a great <leal of chaff and tale, and useless rubbish mixed up with It 'The captains and ship-owners refuso to earry passengers at auy rate, and the ports of Kutterdaui. Havre, Liverpool aad London, are crowded with emigrants disappointed in the object of their arrival there, the captalus (owing to the change created by the new law of your Legislature) refusing to fulfil the contracts before made with the agents of the emigrants who had. before they left their homes, engaged ships at the several ports. They are the substantial Hermans who are mostly affected by this law of New \ ork. because the Irish poor chiefly emigrate to tTuebec. The all absorbing and most interesting topics of public attention at the present moment are entirely domestic, namely, the scarcity of hrcadatufls lor the supply of the people s food, and the monetary crisis. The latter is in fact the most serious, inasmuch as it affects the pockets and resources of every head of a family throughout the nation; but it more especially alh-cla the poor, aud is more laud to them, by causing them tube deprived, lu whole districts, ol all employment, rendering it impossible for them to buy necessary food, if food were so plentiful The crisis since my lost Irtter has become more aggravated, aud the contraction of the circulation more intense It is a national calamity Many, owing to its action, who were In easy circumstances are thrown Into poverty and lose their uiuans, while those who were poor before, are thrown by it luto extreme suffering 01 actual starvation; but the number of the latter sufferers is to that of the former as a thousand to oue, at the very least.

And even the Timtt newspaper put forth silly article, implying, that the crisis was a delusion, be eause the nation is rich enough to devote so large a sum as fifty millions to railway operations. 1 will offer no apology lor dwelling upon thla subject. nacauae It la ao important, ao interesting. and ao eminently deserving to be rightly understood. The eaua? of the commercial convulaion now ahaklng Yngland. like an earthquake. la the audden and violent contraction of the currency The only currency among the people wan gold, (merchanta, ho , had their own of puper in high sums.) the popular ordinary currency waa gold Thin baa been gathered up and drawn from the hanks by speculator*, great house*. *.c., to aend abroad | to pay for toreigu grain*. Thru, again, an the merchant* ran upon the hank* to convert their paper into gold to pay for toreigu purchase*, they (being obliged to diacount according to their amouut of guld In hand) could, of ! course, no louger accommodate the merchant*, and thus the withdrawal of the popular currency re-acted upon the great mercantile currency, anu both suffered, and now miller together, a violent contraction, deranging I every business tu the country, ehauging every value. | depreciating every property, aud consequently bringing ruin upon hundreds of the great, and upon whole masses I of tho little. The present experience It a lesson In political economy?it proves beyond a doubt tbat a specie currency is lu every respect a* liable to ruinous, sudden, and unlorcseen contraction* and expansion*, as ths merest paper currency, and tbat as many and a* ruinous failures flow from it a* ever did from breaking banks, ruining tbe fortunes of the people, a* much as broksn banks ever did You tnsy very probably differ with me iu this view, but I am bound to give you a faithful and honest picture of tho thing* going on here You will receive in the public papers full details of tbe fearful condition of tho population iu tho manufacturing districts. Tho ministry, servilely following tbe abstractions of Mr. Pool in political economy, present a braxen face to the storm.and refuse to fliorh from measures and policy which are spreading ruin and desolation over the country Such a man as Mr. Pitt is now wanted, bold enongh to supply a currency and All up tbe vacuum which tho disappearance of tho ordinary currency has created. They, however, aud their advocates, look on tbe ruin which they have created by their ignorsut pulley, and boldly say that tho restriction of all trade, the cessation of all enterprise, the stoppage of the mills, tbe short-time work anil tho suspension of the rallroada, are the most suitable cures for the present preenure?tbat 1* to say, the ruin spreading over the country ie the beet cure for the ruin. A general alarm and panto ha* spread through tbe lana on the subject of the supply of wheat.

Vou will receive your usual correct information. It Is a perfect puuie. and how far It will go, or where it will stop, no one can tell. Immediately alter tbe defeat of iiieiubeia in the House of l.ords on tbe Irish poor law bill, a cabinet council was held, and It is confidently as scried mat an immediate dissolution of Parliament and appeal to tile country was determined upon. The Mlnistry huvo no rent froui incessant deputation! from tba great commercial towns. representing the extent of tha ruin of trade operations, and urging upon tlieia measures of relief. '1 hey will accordingly give way In soma degree, (as they have already loosely Intimated) so as to give a semblance of partiul aid in half and helpless devices, to the high mercantile interests, aud so enable them to obtain some accommodation from the blink. But they will only be putting a little mollifying ointment upon one small sore of the body politic, while the nation at large will have to go on suffering a depreciation of all their menus and a curtailment of all their resources, a continuing dunuuitiou of thu currency, a contiuued rise of provisions, and a cutting off of the means of procuring them. In fact, the very aid which will begiveuto relieve the grandee merchants aud atop the ciauiora of tha great discount brokers, (alius pawn brokers.) will eventually only add to the sufferings of the people aud aggravate. after a time, the crisis This is obvious; for it will enable them to increase the drains of the floating specie, by drawing it off with the very accommodation H ey re! reive to make paj u<> nts for loreigu graiu 'thus they will still uiore diminish the popular and only circulation at home and the relief extended to thein not in the I least supplying the small circulation, the contraction ' will necessarily be lenlold augmented.
