BENNETT'S LETTERS FROM EUROPE. London, August 18, 1847. The Commercial Revulsion In England?The Power of the Bank of Hngland?Tke JDnty or American Me chants. The pressure in the money market is just aa severe aa ever. It is calculated that American bill*, to the amount of ?400,000 or #2,000,000, will be.returned to New York, and other places of the United States, in the steamer that sails irotn Liverpool to-morrow. This amount, added to those already returned, will probably exceed ten millions. The effect of this measure on American trade, set on foot by the Bank of England and the capitalists of Lombard street, can be easily im-gined. Whether this, even, will be th?* whole extent of the recoil, seems very doubtful. The causes which have produced the existing revulsion are still as active aa ever. These causes may be found in the railway expenditure, in the vast increase of imports into England, in the high rates of exchange; all these concurring to give a shock to the money system of England. Some branch of trade had to be sacrifio<-d in ordsr to preserve the ascendancy of the Bunk of England, and to continue the mouied power ov?*r the exchanges to the large capitalists of London ; and it has been judged to he the best policy, and the least sacrifice, to ruin the American c rn trade, and break up all the merchants 'hut Una in nrd.r tn nrxuna ?V?A financial superiority and domitnon to London. New York, Boston, Baltimore, and New Orleans, must all suffer i>me, when their commercial movements interf^rw with the Bank of England and the Englich capit?li?ts. I should not be surprised if the extent of th<> present revulsion were to equal that of 1836-'87, or 1839 *40, *hichfell so heavily on New York and New Orleans. It will probably break up all the American corn dealers, from the Atlantic t? the Mississippi, and all those of other dealers, who have purohaaed their foreign exchange, will be more or less injured. But the restrictive action of the Bank of England and the London capitalists is not confined to the American tride. It has already produced a revulsion in some of the commercial cities of the continent ; and accounts of failures are reaching London by every other continental mail. I have already alluded to the railway expenditures in England as being one of th? principal causes of the present revulsion. The outlays in these works have been, for the last two years, equal to ?25,000,000 a year. For the present year they are estimated at ?40,000,000, and some think that the " culls," aa they are called, will exceed that amount. These vast outlays have caused an increased demand for corn, sugar, coffee, tea, &e., all of which are used by the workmen employed. The proportion expended in foreign produce is estimated at half the aggregate eost of the work. This increased demand, coupled with the loss of the crops of last year, caused the extensive pressure, which alarmed every on e here, in the month of April last. But at that time the famine existed, popular discontent had to be conciliated, and the Bank of England, with the London capitalists, did not veniure, ai mai period, 10 aiuuonor Aincncnn bills, and break down the American trade. In April, they were willing to allow the specie to b? drawn to pa/ for the balances due the United States. The railway calls for floating capital had even to give way for the necessity of receiving foodAll is now changed ; at this period, however, tSe capitalists and politicians have recovered from their alarm; and in order to preserve their ascendency in the exchanges and in money affairs, they devise a measure that will carry destruction to the American trade in that particular line. The field will now be left open to the large English dealers in exchange, and if it be possible to get back the specie, they will attempt the measure in every shape. It is alleged, indeed, in these regions, that the Bank of England, under her present charter, cannot help herself; that she must refuse discounts, and elevate th? rate of interest, as* soon as the specie in the banking department has diminished to a certain point. This may all be very true, but there has been a combination of London capitalists acting with the bank in th? recent measures; and the purpose really aronnd on 'change was to break down the American corn trad', which caused the drain of specie, so as to preserve the railway and other speculations of their own. Such is, undoubtedly, the canse and the consequence of the recent measures of the Bank and the capitalists. The fall in the price of breadstuffs, caused by the good appearance of the crops in Europe, may have produced some failures, but many of those who have recently become bankrupt here, will have assets enough to pay their liabilities in full. The results, however, of these measures, are not all fully developed. It is now believed that the good crops and the pressure in the money market, will caure a great full in the price of breadstuifs. I have heard some acute financiers say, that before the next spring, the price of wheat per quarter will be down to thirty shillings, or less. As long ns the railway expenditures continue, a large supply of breadstuifs will be required from the United States. The price may not fall so lew in consequence of the demand still existing here, but at all eventa the Bank of England, and its secret gents, the great capitalist*, will take possession of the American corn trade, and manage it, together with the exchangee, so as to suit their own miereaie ana poncy. It is the great error of the American mer? chanie, in every branch of trade, to act eingly instead of together. Their iaolated condition m*keelhem easily overthrown. It ia calculated that fifteen millions of dollars, daring the pres? ure, willba th? amount of the dishonored ex* change. All thia buaineaa will now fall into the hand a of the agenta of English capitaliats, who ara in their turn guided by the policy of the Bank of England. The profile in the exchange ta supply theae deficienciea will be vary great, and will go to European agenta and houaea. Why cannot the banka and merchanta of the United States, combine to defend themselves against the Bank of England and the foreign capitalists! They have the means completely in their power The English foreign trade ia decreasing with Europe, but it ia increasing with the United Statee. Hereafter, the rate of exchange will moat generally be always against England. By a proper combination of the United States banking tntereata, Wall street might hereafter rule Lombard street and all ita dependencies. The preaent aught to be the last revulaion. But enough on thia point at preaent. I shall have much to say on these mattera hereafter. The laat throea of the election are now nearly fit a clos-.*? ta election whose reeultahave caused a great deal of concern to the old aristocracy.? For the first time since the paaaing of the reform bill, the free trader*, or the movement, or radi* o?l, or repofcitoan party, will have force enough in the Common* to check and oontrol the two | old parties, divided and broken to piecea aa they are by the abolition of ihe-corn lawa. The radical* and repealers will have over a hundred votea in the Houae. They are generally set down aa liberals, and nominally in favor of the Russell government?but there is no real sympathy between them and the ol<l whigs. It is much more likely that Pe*l and his tsil will turn towards the radicals, under Cobden and his men, than that Cobden should feel much sympathy for Russell. Lord John Russell is the organ of the eld whig oligarchy, and is just aa hoatile to the further extension of popular rights aa the old toriea arefeven more ao than Stanley and Bentinck. There is a good chance for the people hereafter to increaae their power and influence in the country. If corn should fall to a very low price, there will be another political exoitement in England. The landed aristocracy will aoon be on their laat legs. Tub Gas.?What in the name of wonder if the matter with the gas in the lower part of the city 1 It gives us about ss much light aamakes darkneaa visible, and no more. The other evening it went out entirely,and left our establishment from turret to foundation,as dark as Erebus Fun is very good in its place, but a newspaper office is no place for it, and we suggest to the gas company the propriety of omitting it for the future, for we can assure them that we cannot appreciate it, at three or four o'clock in the morning, when every minute is as much aB an hour to us at another time. One word to the gas company. Gentlemen, ?you charge exorbitantly high for your gas, because you have a monopoly of the business, and give mean, contemptible, small, and unsatisfactory light; you are getting very unpopular with tne public, and our advice is?have care! The city of Washington will soon be illuminated with a new kind of gas, which costs very little. If you don't look sharp, your occupation and your profits will vanish like the baseless fabric of a dream, or as your gas did in our office on Saturday night, and leave nothing but long faces and empty pipes behind, because people will try to manufacture their own light. Let the experiment be tiied but once, and from the time it ie made you m <y dite your gradual downfall. In- ' deed, we understand the experiment will soon be tried. We want good light and more of it than we i have had lately in our fixtures. You gave ua a ; doae interna ly a few days since, while taking , up the pipes in the streets near our office, and perhaps you are making up for it by stinting j us in another shape. i Medical Department or Alms House?The , summer recess of the Common Council has now terminated, and they will meet this evening ! again for the transaction of business, and among the first things done by the Board of Assistants, we trust, will be the final passage of the bill for the belter management of Bellevue Hospital. It will be remembered that this bill was passed by the Board of Aldermen, with some few amendments, and sent down again to the Board of Assistnuts for their concurrence, the last ' night of their session, but from want of time it was then laid over, and thus remains. We have already given our readers a synopsis ftf fViA nrnnnsprl inHioi/tiia tlt*rafinna nnrl ?*/* feel convinced, that every member of the Common Council must be thoroughly aware of their excellence.? If anything more were necessary to urge aome change in the management of affairs at Bellevue, we might adduce the recent extraordinary occurrences that have taken place there; we allude to the quarrels, crimination* and recriminations, between the resident physician and his assistants. In such cases, it is always difficult to say who is in fault; but be the fault on which side it may, the possibility of such, we must say, disgraceful scenes being enacted, show that the present rules and regulations must be both contused and inde6nite. Let the bill now before the Board of Assistant Aldermen, be passed, and made a law, and then the business and station ot every person about the establishment will be so clearly defined, that such occurrences can never happen. Th? #?Yn*na#? tn ritv will lint h#? nnv mnrp Ithan it is at present, and we shall heve an orderly and well appointed hospital, whilst at present Bellevue Hospital is little better, it appears, than a fighting ground between hospital stewards and physicians. Election in Wisconsin?A delegate to Congress is to be elected to-day in Wisconsin. Moses B. Strong is the democratic, John R. Tweedy the whig, and Charles Durkee the abolition candidate.

Justice Timpson has sinoe visited Newark and presented two of the bill* in question to the cashier who pronounced them to be genuina. Mr. ItaiMtln ha* therefore been honorably discharged by Justice Timpson from the oomplaint pieferred against bim. Turpentine Business.?Few persons, perhaps, unconnected with the commercial transactions now carried on in North Carolina, in the tingle article of turpentine, can form an idea of the quantity made annually In Ita limit*, the amount of labor employed in its manufacture, the large capital invested, the targe numbers supported bv it, and the various uaeii to whleh it is appropriated. Nor are we prepared t+enlighten them tally upon the subject, became of the neora*arily limited information which even dealers in the article possea* in referenoe to it. In our conversation with Intelligent gentlemen engaged In the business, we have been enabled to gather up some particulars, however, which may be Interesting. We Una the impression to be, that about BOO 000 barrels of turpentine are now annually made In this State. Not more than 2(H) 000 barrels, if that, were whipped to New York and other ports the past year, in Its crude state, the largest portion of the whole being distilled in the State The estimated value to the makers la about $1,700,000 annually, and may be $2,000 ( 00. About four or five thousand laborers are engaged In making it, and perhaps three times as many more human beings are supported mainly from the proceeds of its first sale The distillation of turpentine in this State is now oarrled on very extensively, which will render the shipment of it in its crude state very small in future. It is supposed that there are now in operation about ISO stills, irhlch, at an average cost of $1,600 with fixtures, show that there Is an expenditure of $226 OuO to begin with, in the distilling of spirits of turpentine. This number of stills, to have steady work, would require ooooio barrel* annually?more than is now made; which to us is an indication that the distilling business Is overdone. Should the makers of the artiole continue to multiply stills, and thus monopolise the distilling as well as the making, It will be neoersary for those now engaged io It to Invest their capital in other pursuits. The oost of distilling is very great, and when w reckon the oest of transportation, the profits of distillers, of ship owners, commission merchants, and the venders of the article abroad, it will be seen that the oapital and labor employed is not only Immense, but the numbers who are supported by the manufacture and sale of the article is astonishing. Perhaps there is no one article produced in this country by the same number of laborers, which oontrlbutee so muob to the commerce and prosperity of th? country as the article of turpentine.?i/orth Carolina Jftwbtrnian. cemmenctmbivt at Bbown UitivcaiiTT?Wednesday last was the day set apart for the exercises of the seventy-eighth commencement of Brown University. l-'rannla Wayland Weston, of Lynn, Mass., waa the valedictorian.

The flri>t watt to obtain annexation with the United States ; that failing, the second was to obtain from Mexico the recognition of the independence of Texas; and failing in both these, the third was to form a defensive allianoe with some foreign power against Mexico In order to aooomElisb the last two of these objects, the President of Tex?s ad spread out betore him as broad a field for diplomacy

as could well have been desired. His first expedient, annexation to the United States, wae very soon exhausted, sinoe Mr. Reiily, who had been Instructed to propose annexation at an early day of my administration, so utterly failed as not only to withdraw the proposition, bat to aocompanv the withdrawal with the deolaratlen that Texas would never renew It. After Mr Relllv's failure, the question naturally arises, what coarse did the President of Texas thea pursue f Did he fold his arms in apathy, or did he press on to the aooemplish- , ment of his second and third expedients ?

Executive,startled by in Ulligenoe received from London .an d oonttrmed by the representative of Texas at that oourt, deemed it neoetsary to Institute inquiries, through its accredited organs, for the purpose of ascertaining the true ooudition of things Thine inquiries developed , the active efforts made by associated individuals to en sure the tulUlmeni.of their it trigues. and the extent 01 the oounteuanoe which bad breu bestowed upon them i by the ministry of (ireat Britain, which was more publicly and openly avowed on the floor of the British Parliament, in a debate in which Lord Brougham, whose sentiments were fully re-echoed by the British minister, bore a oonspioious part Iu that uebate, the Texan was declared to be the ail important question?and this, not so much on ite own account in the abstract, as in its bearing and effect on the oondition of the United States. There was no longer any room to doubt but that the eyes orforeign powers,as well as of associated companies, were strainedln that direction; aud I repeat in this plaoe, what 1 said in my former letter, that I resolved upon the proportion tor annexation a* the readiest, il not the only mod*, " to Matter the web of their intrigues," either actual or contemplated. Notwithstanding, bowever, the authentic information reodved by the United States Executive, all of wbioh has been heretofore in offloial documents communicated to the public?and notwithstanding the great interest with whiohTexas waa regard, ed by the distinguished statesman of Eugiand, Mr Houston, who is not content to epeak for himself alone, but also for the whole world, would feln induce the country to believe that the British ministry folded their arms in inaotion, and that the Abolition Sociutv of Oreat Bri tain reposed in unaisiurDeu siumner. lie seems also uiost strangely to forget that the city of Mexico was as important a place for tbe courooting and carrying on intrigues ,as tie city of Austin itself. in taking the Initiative. I was not in the least controlled by the feelings oi the Texan Executive; nor did any thing which bad proceeded from it stimulate me to action. Texas was surrounded by well- known embarrassments, exhausted by a long war, her industry paralysed, aud her resources almost annihilated; and as she bad been repeatedly repelled in her advanced to the government of the United .Slates, it was naturally oonoluded that she would look elsewhere for succor and for aid. The Executive of Texas had tried annexation, and failed; It Had not obtained a recognition of independence by Mexico. What other expedient remained, but to make the best terms it could with either France or England or both, which, giving it breathing time, would enable it to j repair the energlr s of the country, and recover it from the state of deep depression in whioh it was placed ? The Aiuetlean Minister, (Mr. Murphy.) was therefore directed to urge annexation on the Exrouiiveuf Texas This was accordingly done, and Mr Houston, in hi.-, letter, sets forth the terms which, as a condition precedent, be thought it proper to exaot lroin an over xealout. but devoted friend to the measure. I must be permitted to say, that it would have better concluded Mr. Houston's accsunt of the matter, if he bad n cause to have informed the puuuc, U1V. Iruo miiu? mm cuuiru *?tO pruuipilT Uiravowed by tue executive. it being firmly fixed In itR devotion to the Constitution of the United Settee, and that Constitution nowhere conferring the power on the President to transfer hit authority over the army or navy, or any portion of either, to a foreign potentate, cr to enter into any alliance, defensive or otherwise, without the previous esnotlou of the Senate. '1 his was as well known to Air. Houston an to myself. He had filled important stations in the United btatea prior to his emigration to Texas, and was believed to be well acquainted with the limitations and r*ktriuLionn imposed by the Constitution on all irs functionaries. Mr. Houston will pardon me for frankly saying, that this arrangement, thus made with Mr. Murphy, did at the time excite a suspicion on my part, that he wanted but a plausible pretext to deteat annexation altogether. He will find in that fact, indep. ndently ol their own personal merits, the secret motive tor the appointment of Geo. Howard, who hat belonged to Mr. Houston's military family when Governor of Tennessee, In plaoe of Mr. Murphy : and, after the death of General Howard, of Major Donaldson, from the household of General Jacksen, who was regarded as the Idol of Mr. Houston's political worship. Both these gentlemen were well worthy of their appointments, and acquitted themselves of their high duties with ability and seal; but yet, oould I nave been satisfied at the time that the President of Tiivila nlavlntr th? rnnnnfta ami mepil* irwinltrinir in a oourse of innocent flirtation, in order to awaken the jealouxy of the people of the United States, It It quite probable 1 should have (elected for t?? mission others, who stood more closely allied to my administration. The flirtation with Mr. Muryhy wis very soon quieted, by a disavowal of what he had inconsiderately, but from the best of motives, been led to do ; but, when the coquetry with England waa afterwards actually carried through the aotive agenoy of the British Minister, into an acknowledgement by Mexico of I he independence of Texas, upon the sole coudltion that she would renouoce annexation to the United States, it was as near becoming serious as any love affair in the calendar. What it the United States had presented at the time no definitive proposition for annexation, is any one prepared to say that the Mexloan proposition would not have been accepted T Will anyone venture to say that General Jackson was so far deceived, ur the Amtrioan people so far misled by their Ji-alousy, as to bave been mistaken in supposing that " the golden moment" had in fact arrived ? Or, can It be said that I was very far misiakeu in the declaration, tbat the proposition for annexation xoattered to the winds all the webs of intrigue wherever woven ? Alas for annexation, if the American Kxeou live had been driven to the alternative of ireovnt.nK a new basis of negotiation in place of definitive teimo! In declaring the opinion lh?t thedeathof Mr. liptbur and the appeiutineul of an adjuaot commissioner to Mr Van Zandt, alone prevented ihe completion of a tieaiy at an earlier day, I neither designed to uiter oomplaiut . gainst au all-wine Providence tor removing from my <ide my friend and able counsellor, nor against the Kxecutlveof i'exas for appointing an aojuact commissioner ? it was a solemn occasion, that oi uitrgtug the absolute sovereignty oi one State iuto that of olhrr*; and Texas oould uot well have used too much caution in its performance. Certain it is that no adjunct could have been more acceptable to the United mates than Governor Henderson. 1 did but urge that view to rbo* that ?o eecret had been, and so expeditious would hsTe keen ihe course oi the United Stale txeoutive on the ubject. that the treaty, but for the two circumaianc> s alluded to, would bav? beeu consummated before the speculation m Texas slocks, or holders of Texas lands would ever have heard of It I thifk the remark admits iu fairness ao other ooustruotion. As to the ascription made by Mr Houston to Oeneral Jackson of tne success of the measnre, I have nothing more than this to say, that I took the initiative witnout my prwTloun connunaiiuu ?ivn tuu uiabiuguiiueu uiau lie gave to tb? action of thi Ki?outi?? tiw teajom and cordial lupport, and I would bo the lot to d?ny him th? full meaiure of honor which hi* patriotic advocacy Implied.

The arrival of three ateamera from Europe within the put week, haa given us intelllgenee up to the 19th of August, rrom lodood ana Liverpool. it 1* very meldom that we receive In auoh a ?hort apace of time, such repeated accounts of financial and oommerciitl embarrassments, in the old world. The two short crops of Great Britain are beginning to produoe the usual effects in financial and commercial ciroles, and before the end is reached we aball see a vast deal of dlffloulty among the commercial classes of Great Britain. One shbrt crop in England U sufficient to derange the financial affair* of the kingdom to an alarming extent, and two usually bring* about many Insolvencies, and produoe* panic* and embarrassment*, the effeot of which is not recovered from for years. When in connection with a large defleienoy In the crops for two years in succession, there exist* an enormous speculative movement in a new element, we oannot but anticipate more alarming oonsequenoes than usually attend a short supply of food We allude to the railway mania, wbioh has taken such a atrong hold upon the speculative propensities of t>e people of Great Britain. This movement, requiring the eutlay for such a length of time, of such an Immense amount of capital, at a time of soar city in the domestlo snpplj of breadstuffs, is sufficient to bring bankruptcy upon half the kingdom. Had the present harvest been as deficient as the previous two, the eonsequenoes would have been awful. Fortunately for the people of Great Britain, there is every prospect at present of an abundant yield, and many of the evils which have been anticipated have disappeared. There are, however, enough left wbloh have grown out of the position in which the people of England have for the put two years been plaoed, to give them all the anxiety they desire tor the next year or two at leafct. The importation of breadstuffs into Great Britain is usuallyj large. The people of the United Kingdom never raise enough for their own consumption. The short crops of 1838 and 1830 produced larger imports* tloa in 1839 and 1840, but the Impart* at that time were limited compared with what they have been la the past two yean. In 1839 there were imported Into the united kingdom of Great Britain 4,405,613 quarters of grain, and 636,170 owt. of meal and flour; and In 1840, S,444,346 quarters of grain and l,312,964"cwt. of flour. From that time up to 184i the Importations of flour and grain feU off rapidly. In 1846 they began to increase again, in oonsequence of the short orop of 1846, but the bulk of the imports for that year did not reach that oountry till the l'all, when the second failure of the harvest created an immediate and immense demand far breadstuffs. The annexed table exhibits the quantity of grain and flour imported into Oreat Britain and (Ireland, for the first six months In each of the past two years:? Grain and Floor Imported into the United Kingdom or OaEAT Britain, Jan 6th to July Sth. 181#. 1817.

The importation In the first six month* of 1847 exoeeda that of any previous year. Thia gives noma idea of the immense demand for breadatuiTa, and the great deficiency In the homeaupply. Theahipmenta from this oountry, and from the continent of Europe, to England, aince the 6th of July, have been exceedingly large, notwithatandlng the great reduction la prioea It la a notorloua fact, that the proapeot of a good harveat in England, after a series of high averages, inatead of repelling fjrelgn import*, almost invariably produoea a sudden influx of foreign graina, from the conviction that unless me uuiuna, nui uiu uwu nwriDg it m mrrigo ouuovnn in order to keep the Englirh market sparingly supplied. bo that price* might rise to the highest point*, should avail themselves of the present opportunity, before th? new crop oame into taarket, they would have to aubmlt t > lewer prior* both at home and abroad. It 1* never the interest of the Importer, in year* of soarolty. to All the markets with foreign grain, until they have forced prices up to starvation point. It Is pretty well known that the corn markets of England are regulated by ratal! clique*, and that the most extravagant and untrue statements, relative to prloes. supply, lie., are frequently put forth for the purpose of inflating or depressing the market. It Is therefore impossible to arrvat anything definite or decld6d, relative to the corn markets of Great Britain. It is principally tbe absence o? accurate Information as te the supply of bread stuffs in England, tbe state of the crops, ko . which led to error* made by shippers on tbisside. and to tbe absence of correct information, on the other side, relative to the Immense supply of breadstuff" In this ouuntry, and tie quantity likely to go forward, that has produced tbe difficulties under whioh this class of operators n w labor It is well known that parties on this side, early in thi season, mads the most ridiculous statamsnta relative to the probable surplus snprlv of breadstuffs in the United Mates, likely to reaoh market daring the opening of * ?vigatlon Theae atatemeata, emanating from what w < ooneldered, on the other side, pretty good authority hit which, on thl* (Me, were oonaidered very ridiculous o much eo aa to be beneath notice, no doubt had a ver> great Influence upon prloea. and waa the prime oauee ot tbe enormous Inflation which Immediately followed When the actual extent of oar earplaa beoame known and the importation! into Oreat Britain and Ireland from this country became ao large aa to aatiafy all that the deflolenoy, whatever it mUht be, could be eaaJy aupplied. prices rapidly depredated, and the baa kruptofce reported became inevitable.
