Pabis, 30th August. Editor N. Y. IIcrald? The utter stagnation of political news here, owing to the adjournment of the Chambers, the absence of the King and royal family, and of the prlnoipal members of the ssvornment. h<is been broken bv the horrible drama of the Hotel Srb^taiui, of which you will probably have heard something, even sooner than the arrival of this letter. Nevertheless the account of an eye witness and ear witneai, resident on the spot, may not be unacceptable to your readers, where the event is one, whioh, considered in all its bearings, may perhaps be said to haw I no parallel in the history of society In clvillied life, for halt a century. Marshall Sebastian! was, aa U well known, a distinguished commander and diplomatist under the Umpire and under the Restoration. He has engaged the especial confidence and friendship of Louis Philippe. Under Napoleou. a* Kmperor, he waa sent as Ambassador to Constantinople, and shortly before his departure for that place, he married the daughter of the Duke de Coigny, a member of the /iau(? noble tie, and one of the oldeat and moat distinguished families of the Faubourg St (iermain. The lady had a large fortune in possession, and a still greater one In reversiou. At Constantinople she gave birth to a female Infant, and died la so doing, leariug* the Marshal and Ambassador, her husband, a youag widower with a newly born Infant. The ehild, under the o&re of a nurae, lived. The atate of Kurope was luuh that time, that communication with Constantinople otherwise than by land was Impracticable, aud the infant waa accordingly brought to Paris through Turkey, Austria, and'ihe Uerman States. This sole child grew Into a beautiful and highly accomplished woman, and became the Inheritress, directly and by reverniou. of the fortuuea of the Duke do colgny, her uncle, Marahal Sebastiani, her father, Ueneral Sebastlaui, her uncle, and other wealthy relatives. In fine, her fortune, in possession and In espeotancy, amounted In value to twenty millions of dollars. At eighteen she formed a love match, contrary to the wlshea of her family, with the Duke de Cholseul-Praalin, then only ono and twenty, and the head of another noble family, not less illustrious by descent than her own, and possessed of a large Inheritance. To this marriage nine children were boru, sis daughters and three sons, and the parents were atlll abort of the meridian of life, tlie Duke being only 42 and the Duchew >9. Cauaes of dissension arose of late years between them, out of circumstances which engendered jealeusy in the Duchess, and a separation was threatened by her. The Queen and Ma'Jatne Adelaide, whohoaored her with their especial friendship, however, Intervened, and brought about n seeming reconciliation. On the 17th of the present month the family, who were staying at their magnificent chateau of Vauae-Praalln, came to Parla by the Orleana railway, with the pnrpoae of proceeding to Uieffe, for the bathing season. They arrived lu town at nine o'olock in the evening, and Immediately lea the railway atation In two carriages, one of which containing the Duchess and some of the children, went directly to the Hotel Sebastian!, their town residence, in the Hue faubourg, 8t. Ilonore, and the others, with the Duke and the other ohildren, drove first to the J residence of a lady who had been lately governess In the family, to vialt her, aad thenoe to the Hotel Sebisiianl, where it arrived about aa hour later than the former carriage, whioh bruught the Duchess. ' Common report aays that the Duoheaa expressed her 1 displeasure in strong language at this visit to Che gover- 1 noes at suoh an hour, and especially at her daughters being brought there, and that a sharp altercation ensue J. lie this as it may, all was quiet, and the family hah < retired to rest at eleven o'olook. The Duchess's bed room was on the ground floor, the windows opening upon the roloonde of the hotel, which looks upon the gar- 6 den. The Duke'a room waa separated from It by a cabl- * net. ante-room and other passage*. j . i none wno ??ie iaiuuiar wiui iuii quarter or tn< <*117, y will remember in walkiug up th? avenue of the ChampaElysota, which rutin at the rear of the rue Faubourg ' Si lionora, after passing the garden of the British em- j tiaasy, and beforajarrivtug at that of the Palate Klycees .

( At half paat four in the moraing the Duke proceeded c to the ro >tu of the Ducheaa, provided with three meana j of murder, tUat is to say ; with corda to atrangle, with a t knife to atab, aud with a loaded piatol. Mtraugulation j preaeuted hoteral obvloua advantages, and waa, aa ia aup- a poseJ, tlrat tried The noose waa alipped over the neok 1 of the victim, but hud not time to be drawn tight before t be atarted up, made resiatanee, and attempted nolaa. luatantly the knife waa reaorled to, and a atroke waa t 111a ia at the neck, aimed at the jugular artery. A wound t waa Inflicted aud biood flowed, but the object aimed at I waa aliened, and the wound waa not mortal. The Dueh- t eaa was aa yet on the bed wh?>re aha had been aaleep A ? atrong and powerful woman, oppoard to a man under the a middle aiae she now struggled lor life (the aprung from H the bed, and a struggle, body to body, ensued. The aa- r iHsnn waa still armed with tile knife, with which he in- i| flicted In rapid auocvaaion half a doien blowa about the neck and breast, noue of whioh. however, Inflicted a t death-wound. The Duoheaa made for the bell, whioh c wa? l>esi>e the ohlmney-piece Rhe aucceeded in reach- b lug it and ringing It. In aoeompliahing thla ahe had a aeiaed the kiilfa by the blade, and her hand waa fright- F fully wounded, oua of the llugera being nearly aevered a ?vtM wuu nMi|g?<i?u iuru lowaran liia wail uemao ine t tire-place,ou whiou.iu two, theprlutof the bioody t hana w*e left. The bell ooid wbere she grasped it was k covered WHO gore. Id the last blows the uiimId had broken the knife. I and desiring, doubtlesy, to despatch hla Tiotlm before a b witurss shuuld arrive, he Mixed the plitol bj lta barrel p and struck her a number of severe blow* on the head, II by wnieh she appears to have beeA stunned and prostra- d ted on the floor, near a small sofa or divan, which stood n beside the chimney piece. The murderer then left the t chamber, ana proceeded to open one of the window* In 11 tb? adjacent osbinet. Whiie these circumstance* were proceeding, a femme r He r.kamtre. who had been roused by the bell, had thrown r on her elotnee, and came down stairs to the door of tho r Duchess * chamber wlnoli she attempted to open, but a failed, it being fastened on the inude. She then called b up of the male domestics, Informing him that the Dm:h> was indisposed, as she hearu her moaning, hut A eould not open her door, aad required the man's assist- k anoe to accomplish this The two servants retmraed to V the tfofli, m4 fcUH to ipn It It them oesurred S NE1 NEW *> the man to try th? window* whlsh looked on the gmr- tr lan, and being on a level with the porchway or oolonade, tt vera easily accessible. pi Tba object of the Puke in proceeding to open the window of the cabinet, ii presumed to have been to hi jreato grounds for the tnfvrenoe. that an assassin had ot nterej from the garden, and eaoaped by the value mean*. oi >? thla m it may, the Duke waa in the act of executing ai .hi* purpose, at the moment that the man-servant pre- t? ented himself at the same window to attempt an en- n tranon there to the chamber of the Duohess. He saw aa tbe figure of the Duke, who instantly retired oo pereelv- ei In* htm. The servant then returned to the door of the pi Duohesa's chamber,and having become seriously alarmed vt 'orcud the door in The window shutters being closed, 111 ;tie chamber was faintly illuminated by a night lamp; jo puowuBu uo tun uoor wuii awr ocaci | in eaning oo the divan On lighting th? caudles, which j of is usual stood on the chimney piece, tha horrible spec- 01 tacle presented by th? chamber was disclosed to the t? iffrightad BtTTtnt-s. The floor wan literally a a-* of blood; 01 rarlous articles of furniture displaced or overturned in tha struggle laid disarranged around the room. The Dachau still lived, but was spfeobless, and scarcely iensible. The first impulse of the domestics wag to rush E rorth and call for aid One went to rouse the door-porter to ?end for mtdi'al assistance and the police; the other went to the DuWe's room, when he presented himself 'J IreHsed. On hearing the Intelligence the feelings he as- 01 pressed were thont of reproach to the servants for negll ^ ;enoa In leaving the house exposed, more than those of lorrar at the catastrophe He rushed into tha Duchess's " room and taking her In his arms, raised her to the sofa, at i manoeuvre which was afterwards ascribed to the design ^ >f obtaining a means of explaining the blood upon his restments and person. The polloe and medieal assist- n inoe soon arrived, but the latter was too lata 10 be use- a 'ul, tha Duchess speedily expired, not from ally wound ? absolutely mortal, but from hemorrhage. Tha magistrates cams one by one, including the Prooureur de Hoi * tnd tha Procureur Oeneral, and finally the I'refaot of t< 'olloe and the Minister of the Interior. A considerable time elapsed, many enquiries were raised, searohes made through the premises and in the t [arden before tha slightest suspicion fell on the Duke, c \ooording to some reports the enquiries addressed to d the Duke were not of such a nature as to indicate the g tiorrlble susp'clons eutertaiued by the magistrates "i antil the day of the 19th. Doubtless these function- tl tries brooded on that susplolon long before they could li Bake np their minds to let it be preceived by tha w Duke. At length, however, the question of the Pro- |j :ureur Oeneral aasumed an unequivocal shape, and the ?i Duke saw the point to whioh they were addressed. He m s reported to have become as psie as a corpue, and to gi lave betrayed in his person and manner, the profound oi igitation whioh he felt. He retired to his room, tha au- 01 .horlties not yet deciding to plaoa him under arrest nor w ;o treat him in any respect as an accused person. It tl ?as at that moment that he is supposed to hive swallow- 11 id a large quantity of arsanio. vi The medical inquiries subsequently instituted show ,hat the effects produced by tbis poison are so nearly p dentical with those of cholera as to be undistinguisha- o! )le. In the first instance, the medical men in attend- rl tnoa ara admitted to have neen betrayed Into an error t< >y this ciroumstance, and to have ascribed the prostra ion, vomitings, and other symptom* exhibited by the ... luke, to oholer*, brought on by the high mental txoi'eaent consequent an the oatastrophe. On the morning >f the a lit, between four and At* o'clock, the duke waa lj removed to the prison of the Luxembourg, the evidence being deemed sufficient to establish a charge of murder igainst him. The Chamber of Peers waa constituted J1 Into a court of justice by royal ordinanoe, and a com- si mittee appointed by it prooeeded on that day to eximtne the duke. Various reasons * re given by the medioal men for the " slow and Intermitting e(foots of the poison; but the p Highest authorities In the faculty agree that there is tl nothing exceptional in the case, and that the poison n might remain in the system for several days without a producing death. In tine, the duke became gradually p worse on the 33d and 33d, and on the morning of the Uth his approaching dissolution became evident, the d surate of the parish was called In, and the last rite* of f< religion were administered, and, after an agony of fifty L nluutes, he died at 36 minutes pact 4, on the afternoon g >f the 34th. L The popuUee, highly exasperated at the atrocity of ;he deed, and believing iu the possibility of the viotim L >eing snatched from Justice through the influence of bis g *ank and wealth, crowded round the prixon in large u lumbers, and the authorities apprehended that his re- g nains might even be violated. After the body waa ex- Li imlned by anatomists employed for the purpose, and the n riscera, brain, aud other necessary parts, were taken p iway for analysis, It was determined to inter the re- v nains In the darkness and sllenoe of night. Tlie keep- p >r of the Cemetery of Mont Parnasse, situated In the ? neighborhood of the Luxembourg, waa, accordingly, or- p lered to cause a grave to be dug In a retired part of that u lometery at midnight on the 35th, the grave-diggers f< leing Ignorant for whom it was intended, the seoret li >eiog confided only to the keeper of the place, who was t in old retired soldier of the Empire, long aacustomed <J ;o strict obedienoe to orders. Meanwhile, a van, ac t K>mpanied by a mourning ooach, was brought into the (arden of the Luxembourg by a gate remote from the prison, soon utter midnight. The Chancellor, the (iuvirnor of the prison, the commander of the troops, and :he Commissary of Police, were assembled in the chum - f ser of death, aud formally identified the remains, which irere then wrapped in a sheet and deposited by the employees of the undertakers In a plain oak coffln, bearing '' 10 inscription, which was forthwith introduced into the ri ran. and iollowed to the cemetery by the four lndivliuals above named In the coach. It arrived at the ;rave before two o'olock, where It was deposited, without ri iny religious oeremony, and where it lies without any t< nark to indicate the spot. Thus terminated the mortal t| tareer of the representative of a long line ot ancestors, lolding the highest rank and enjoying the greatest tl ittluence ; and so far frem this obscure burial, conse- o >ratcd by no religious observance, followed by no mourn- u ir, and unattended by a single relation or friend, being lonsidered a disgrace or a stigma, the surviving familv " >t the deceased consider themselves only too fortunate in *' laving escaped the terrible manifestations of publio exe- tl iratiou which would have followed this enormous criml- r< lal had he ended bis days, as he must othsrwlso have w lone, on the publio scaffold. * Connected with this, a curious polemic has arisen In 8' he uress. One of the jeurnals has unexnestedlv rained ? he question of the right to deal thus with tha remains * >f the Duke de 1'rMlln. In all countries where justice Is ?' espected, men are regarded, In the eye of the law, an Intooent until they are convicted of guilt by a competent V .ribunai. The Duke de Prasiln, then, died legally Inno- " lent. 11 y what right, then. It Is asked, are his remains a bus grossly outraged ? Why is guilt assumed after * leath, when innocence is the legal presumption before ri t ? ills burial, therefore, according to these reasoners, b ihould have been conducted with all the observances of l high noble, a peer of the realm, a ohevalier d'bonneur ' if the court, and a Christian. This curious question, however, we must leave to be debated by the oasuists. 01 Home. jj SotTom N. Y. He*ald:? . Romi, August 32, 1847. t] The progress of the liberal policy wliioh was so unex- u jectedly adopted by the Holy See, on the acoession of P 'ius IX., has been accelerated in am extraordinary man- t> ter by events since the date Of our last despatches. si We have already mentioned the detection and defeat P >f the plot of July 17. A considerable aurnber of per- * ons, of various ranks, including several of elevated po- ri ltlon, are now imprisoned for that affair In the castle of 11 It. Angelo. M. Qrassellnl, the former Governor of ? lame, charged with having countenanced the plot, has o teen exiled ta Naples; and Colonel Kreddl, and Captain Ual, of the Carablnlers, who were to have been active *' larticipators in it, are In St. Angelo. Cardinal Kerrettl, a he Secretary of State, who worthily seoonds the liberal K 'lews of the holy father, has publicly pledged himself , hat the trial of the conspirators shall be carried on in he face of the Roman people, it has transpired that he object of this foul plot, which was concocted by the uize the Tope and transport him to the Neapolitan fronier. where he was to be detained as a hostage; meanfhile an rmrutt was to be excited, convicts liberated rom the jails, and a collision between the troops and the t) >opulace provoked. This disturbance could then have r, )een seized as the pretext for Austrian intervention? he Tope would have been oompelled to accept the enun- " m ot the Austrian embassy, and measures of reform ai lould have been postponed for another half century ? o) VII this flue scheme, however, ha* proved abortive by he timely detection af the plot. The agency of Aus- M ft, in the aflair, is proved by aatlsfactory indications; bi lowest promoters of the tmrutr, strangers to Home g] Rvtug been captured, with considerable sums in Aus.rian coin upon their persons. Although the detection of this plot has probably saved II he liberal oause la Italy, the sovereign Tontiff is still p, teset with dlflloultles i he ambassadors of Austria and Krance throw every discouragement and obstruction In " lis way; and untortunatelv Oreat Britain, the only rr reat Kuropean State which has the power and the will, K * well as the Interest, to promote the progress of an en- tt Ightened and liberal policy in" Italy, has no diplomatic i M epresentatlve at Rome. This Is a defect which the ex- I to gnncy of the occasion must soon correct pi It is imposeiole to convey an adequate Idea of the in- la ease excitement produced here, by the news of the oc- tt upation of Kerrara by the Austrlans; nothing could w iave repressed the movement of the people on the occa- T Ion, but respect for the known wishes of the sovereign at ontlff. aud an unbounded confidence in his rectitude th nd firmness of purpose The determination to main- ti ain a tranquillity, which in reality is more formidable cc han open violence, was oonfirmed, when It became nown that on receiving the intelligence of this aggres- ti ion and of the protestation of the Cardinal Legate, his rs IollneM was filled with indignation; he is reported to ty iave exclaimed with vehemenae I vill, in tha first ai laee. protest against this Outrage on mv independence; fli r that do not produce an tffeot I will launoh the thun- I iers of excommunication against Austria: and if that do (ji lot prove sufficient I will descend from tne ohambers of i th ha Vatican and in person mount a horse, and three mil- d? ions of Christians will follow me to repel the Invader " : lix Measures have lately b?en taken indicating a detarml- ?f latlon to offer serious resistance on the frontier.

The eye* of the Italian people liavo been directed late- J ' to thl* quarter of the peninsula, by the unparalleled utrage against the rights of nation*, committed by ustrla at Kerrara. It ia well known that the citadel of lat city ha* bee*, under the treaty of Vienna, garri>ned by Auitrian troop*. Recently, for no dlsooverale reason* except hostility to the Tope, the garrison wa* ot only doubled, but a large body of troop* wa* collectd on the left bank of the Po, In the neighborhood, oon after thl* a frlvolou* Incident, probably intentlonUy produced by Auatrian agent*, wa* sailed a* a presxt lor the military oconpation of the town Itself, by the Lustrian troops. Their commander, Count d'Aueaperg, ant an officer, accompanied by some Inferiors, to the ardlnal Legate, to inform him of his intention to send etacbmenta to ocoupy the various guard houses and ate* of th? city. Against this, the Cardinal protested i the name of the I'ope, but meanwhile entreated that tie outrage should be postponed till the following mornlg, to avoid the chance of popular diaturbance; this as peremptorily and insolently refused, and Immedlater the troops marched Into the town; Infantry, cavalry, ad artillery, with muskets loaded, bayonets llxed, and latches lighted.

Florence, Aug. 24, 1847. iditoa N. Y. Herald,? The liberal tendencies which the Orand Duke formerr manifested, and which were alluded to in my last desatohes, have sines ripened Into action. An edict has ist been published, abolishing capital punishment, and ibstltutlng solitary confinement for hard labor. Jouralism has taken reot, and several papers are now pubshed here, under a very mild censorship. The artloles ermltted in these journals Indicate a sympathy between J lie Orand Ducal and i'apal Governments, and although othing positive ha* yet been effected in the establishlent of constitutional government, everything in ax. eoted. The Duke of Luces, in consequence of Rome popular , emonstrations In his State*, lately applied to Austria >r military aid. Against inch Intervention, the Urand i luke of Tuscany is understood to have protested, < rounding his remonstrances on hiu eventual title to the ; >uchy of Luoea. On the evening of the 23d, a aerlous emrutf took place at | >eghorn. A large popular meeting wan held in the piazza rande, in consequence of the intelligence of the proceedjgs of the Austrian* at Kerrara. Loud cries for the oraniiation ot the National Uuard were uttered, and bosilu shouts against .the Austrians were heard; demands 'ere made to he armed, and to maroh to Kerrara to exel the Austrian!. In the midst of this tumult the Oournor of Leghorn presented himself, and besought the eople to disperse, assuring them that the Urand Duke 'as disposed to adopt the most conciliatory and liberal olicy. The people demanded a change of ministers, nd were in the act of quietly dispersing, when unlorjrtunately a detachment of carabineers presented itself, >etween whom and the people a collision immediately ook place; the consequence of whioh was that the solHers, overpowered by numbers, were disarmed and rampled on. The consequences of this have not yet been developed. Switzerland. Bmic, August 90. KIT. Editor N. Y. HERALD :? As elsewhere, the liberal cause progresses In Swltserind. Since the date of my last, there have been sevekl debates and several divisions in the Diet, in all of rhich the liberal party have triumphed. The Diet has solved to compel the Sonderbundor nullifying canton*, j dissolve their separate league. It has also authorised lie Executive or Vorort, as it is called, to dismiss from he federal service all officers who shall enter the service f the cantons of the Sonderbund, and this the Vorort as been very prompt to do. Meanwhile, the cantons of lie league are continuing to throw up entrenchments, rect fortresses, import munitions of war, and enroll roops. The Federal government here are adopting cor spondlng measures, and a formidable body of troops, Mil drilled and equipped, are now ready to take the Held. ' ouie of the separated cantons are, as you are aware nographically hemmed in by liberal canton*, while 1 thers, if not completely surrounded, are on one side or nother, cut off from military resources Consequently, 1 onvoys of men, and ammunition can only reach them 1 y passing through one or other of the liberal cantons 1 irde.-H are accordingly given to intercept such supplies J i Jrunstlu? and this has, in more than one oai"t, been dually done. 1'nus several wagons of ammunition ere passing through the canton of TeMlno. on their TUte to on? of Ihe separated cantons; they were arrested y the authorities, aided by the people, and were dlsovered to have been luppled by Austria. France, which Lrange to nay. has become one of the most inveterate >es to the progress of liberal ideas, under the regime f >1. Guiiot, hart used every practicable intrigue to elite dissension among the cantons, and to favor those of in league. In everything K ranee 1* now the sworn friend nd ally of the despotic States. You must not suppose lat I mean by this, that such is the spirit and indency of the Krench people. But the Krenoh nople and the Krenoh government are two very liferent things. The t rench government is Louis hilippe and M. Guiiot, backed by a chamber and con'.ltuency in which they oommand a majority, by the ractice of corruption on a colossal soale. This, howler, cannot last long, for the nation is already making igantic efforts to effect a parliamentary and electoral uform. Meanwhile the liberal party in Hwitxerland has tie countenance and support of the Ktigllsh governlent, which is compelled to be liberal whether It will or o. by the direct influence which the people ex^rt upn it The Federal Executive and legislature have not yet ittlod what means of compulsion will be used to cornel the Honderbund to dissolve Itself,to expel the Jesuits, nd to revere the federal pact. These are the three reat objects necessary here, to enable liberal ideas to rogress. The end of the next month will probably see ouiethlng decided on that point. Spill 11. Madrid, August iA, 1817. ditor N. V. Herald:? Since the date of my lost despatches little change has , tken plaoe, either In the politloal aspect of affairs or ie internal relations of the palaoe; the same ministry main In ofllce, and the same court favorites maintain ieir ascendency. |The heat of summer drove the Uueen id her suite to the palace of La Oranja, where a series < 'festivities and hunting parties have been given.

F.niTta N. Y. Hkralo ? The quarrel between Turkey and Ureece, the origin )f which I have explained m my former deapatohea, ia itUl uasettled The Interposition of Trlnce Metternlch, has beeu hitherto unavailing. M. Colettl, the prime Minister 01 iwng uiuo. reiuses to main tne required reparation to the Envoy of the Porte.who had been insulted by the King of (ireece, Meanwhile, all diplomatic relation* between the two countries are suspended ; conauar authorities are abolished, and commerce is thrown la It we?e, Into a trance; this mischief to both coun;ri?s la mainly ascribable to M. Ouixot. who?e represenatives at Athena and Constantinople, hare been intruded to support M. Colettl in this affair, against the 'epresentutivesof the rest of F.uropo. The English (iovrrnmrnt haa exercised the power it >ossesses, lof showing practically Its disapprobation of he course pursued by the cabinet of Athens ; it has denanded through its Minister there, the immediate payment of the portion of the intereat on the Orvek loan lue to England, and has supported its demand by a porion of the Mediterranean xiuadron in the Circeus. M. -,ymini, an enthusiastic I'billilene, came forward with (aixotio generosity, and offered to lend the Ureek gorernment the funds nenessary to pay the interest claimed, namely, A'-JO.i 00 This offer, however, was not ao-epted Immediately ; time rolled on, and the 1st September approached at which another pay mint of interest will become due; the amiable purpose of M. Eyuard being to relieve Greeoe, from the pressure and threats of ner reditors, would not, as was evident, be attained, If England should press as urgently fur the intereat due in September, as for tbat due iu March. And it is accordingly expected, that M. Kynard will decliae muklug the payment, unless the Knglis'i cabinet promises time for Lite interest falling due on the 1st September, which it moat assuredly will not do. What the issue of this situation will be, remains to be seen. Financial Intelligence?The IVlira? of the Failure*. [From the London Times.

During the day many parties entertained a strong expectation that a reduction would be mads in the rate oi discount by tbe bank, but this did not take plaoe. It was, however, understood that advances are contemplated to be made within a short time upon bills and securities, at 6 per cent. With the exception of Mexican stock, which, owing to some purchases, left off at 18,% to 19)*', the operations in tbe foreign securities were oouflned this afternoon to the following transactions:-Portuguese Four per Cents, at 33: Spanish Three per Cents,at 29,'^; Dutch Two-and ..

[From the London Tines, Aug ] The English funds have again been heavy to-day, but from no other apparent cause than the approaching settlement of the arcouut. Consols opened at V7 to>^ for money, and at H7\ for October, whence they declined to for money, closing buyers at that price. For time th?.last quotation was B7>f.

In connection with the settlement of to-morrow's ac:ount, it wu* understood this morning that a lady of title, long notorious as a speculator, would prove a defaulter to soma amount; before the close of business, however, Ike matter waa said to have been arranged, l'he gambling of married women is, happily a rare oolurrence on the English Stock Exchange; but we beieve, as regards the present party, there are throe or 'our not uninfluentlal brokers who lend themselves to .he disreputable practice.

[From the London Chronicle, Aug 28 ] There has been no great animation In aay branch of trade to-day in the city. The failure announced in the corn tr?de?that of Messrs.

The liabilities are stated to be near This occurrence, together with the foreign arrivals of grain and the pressure for money, hare had an unfavorable effrot upon prices, and In some Instances i considerable reduction from last Monday's quotations las been submitted to. The transactions, however, lave not been extensive, and were chiefly condn-d to he retail dealers. Had sales been pressed, no doubt the leollne would have been more serious than that whioh iccurred. The nominal quotation was about 3s lower ban on Monday. The additional fall a res In tlM corn trade, coupled rlth the fact of the agents of Trlme, Ward k (Jo., ef <?w York, having declined to Increase their liabilities >n acceptances until the arrival of the next mall, haa urnished the Idlers about the Htock k'nthmm ?wi. ery exciting toplo for conversation. and the rnoet aburii and uufounded rumor* have been freely circulated.

The Bank of Kngland are understood to have been beral In their advances during the laet few days; and ; is stated on good authority that * reduction In the ites at which paper baa been actually discounted by tiern may be expected.

It has bw?n curreutiy reported in the city to-day. by parties who usually know seme of the secrets of the bank SI larlur, that an immediate reduction in the rate of dls- di :ount will take place. The reasons for this confident umor are not given, but it is generally understood that he position of the Bank's affairs warrants the alteration l( referred to. Under the old system of bank management, the public had some means of kuowlng the probable [, sours* of action of the directors, but sinoe the restrio- fl Lions and impediments Introduced by the Bank Charter Act. the commercial public are only able to form a very indefinite opinion of what may probably be the ^decision it the court under certain given circumstances *' The bank's return of this evening shows the actual condition of the establishment, and the public will be 0 able to form their own opinion on the policy of the di- * rectors in maintaining so high a rate of Interest, under ? the peculiar circumstances in which the trade of the country is at present placed. The directors must be * aware that an appearance of liberality on their cart in- ' spires confidence in others; and that'the present disas- * ters In one branch of trade result almost entirely from ? the want of contidence which clroumstances have reoently created. * The state of the corn trade becomes a matter of importance to many besides those who are engaged in it. I The continued failure* of houtet of lite tint retpecta- t bility it creating a feeling ofiditlrutt,which, unlni hay- 1 p:ly checked at onci, will toon extend and increase the mitchi'f that hat already occurred The stoppage of a , firm like that of Messrs. YVoodley, or of several of those , already announoed, creates a feeling of anxiety for tbe , Arms which may be eiposed to louses; and it not unfre- , .jueotly leads to unfounded rumors, which destroys tbe | credit of those who would otherwise be able to withstand , the pressure. During the day various unfounded statements have reached us, wliloh prove, that not only j rumor Is busy in destroying oharacter, but that the pub- , lie are becoming exceedingly anxious with regard to the | effect of the several failures that have taken place. Wo trust that the worst has now occurred, and that, with a reduction In the rate of interest, we may have a decline J of those serious failures, which we believe have been chiefly occasioned by the want of legitimate bankiDg ac- 0 commodation?such as would have been readily afforded ' bv tbe Bank of F.ngland, and bankers generally, but for * the restriction placed upon their orudit by the Dank l barter Act.
