She Progress of the Commercial Revulsion. SPECIAL DESPATCHES TO THE Wew York Herald, &e. fce. &e. The latest news from London ia given in a telegraphic despatch to the Liverpool Exchange, dated at 10 A. M., the 4th inst., which says:? " Money easier at the London Sto?k Kxchange. worth ray six per oent. The India mail ha* arrlred Aooounta aid to be good." OUR SPECIAL DESPATCHES. Franc*. Paris, Oct. 31, 1847. Since the date of my last there is an absolute dearth of domestic news here. The public is engrossed altogether by foreign affair*?by the money crisis in England, the menaced civil war in Switzerland, the progress of reform in Italy, the court intrigues and law quarrels of Madrid, and the march of the cholera from the East. This last scourge is regarded with peculiar horror by the Parisians, remembering, as they do, the devastation it spread on the occasion of its last visitation. The king Hnd his family continue to reside at the palace of St Cloud, coming to Paris to hold cabinet councils and transtct other public business, from time to time. M'lle Delucy, with whose nameeven the transatlantic puolicare familiar, ever since the Praslin murder, is still in the conciergerie,although it is certain that no serious groundcf inculpation can be foundngainst her. The reform agitation proceeds as before. Banquet alter banquet is held, and oration after oration is delivered, each successive one being only the reproduction of its predecessor. While king Louis Philippe lives and governs,no serious reform will, however, be conceded. Spain. Madrid, Oct. 25, 1817. The same series of palace intrigues are stilT going on here, and the knot of plotting courtiers, called by courtesy a government, still roll about in carriages on the Prado. lounire in boxes at the opera, and occupy the anti-chambers of the palace. Since my last, a curious incident has occurred. The basso of the opera has been suddenly and without an hour's notice seized by the police and sent to a prison in the provinces. No cause has been assigned, either to the victim of this monstrous act of arbitrary power, or to the public, for such a proceeding. It is, however, i generally reported that Signor Morail, who is a well looking man, was engaged at the palace to sing for the umusement of her majesty, and that his constant presence in the royal saloas excited much notice ; also, that the morning before his arrest, he was seen issuing from the palace at day break?a most unusutl and unseasonable hour?and that he could not he there at such a time for any purposes merely vocal. In short, the story goes that Signor Morail was about to be a sort ol' Kizzio to the Mary ot the Kscurlal. On the other hand, it is asserted by the friends of Queen Isabella that the whole business of the basso has been an infamous plot to bring discre- ! dit on her majesty. It is denied that there was any thing about the conduct of Signor Morail or his visits to the palace, to juatity the arrest; that the arrest was made to create report* unlavorable to the character of the queen ; that, in tine, it is part and parcel of the plot which lias been so long hatching, to push Isabella oft' the throne, to make room for the Duke ajid Duchess of Montpensier. lhe reconciliation of the Queen and King consort, which was reported in my last, is a hollow, heartless formality, into which the partied have been forced by the intrigues of the Queen mother. There is nothing real in it. The King and Queen live separately in the palace. The few interviews which they have had have only been scenes of affliction and misery. They ride put on horseback separately, in different directions. The King ambles along the roads 1 ading to the Prado. The Queen dashes off at full gallop along the Prado aud other promenades Un one day only she was persuaded, for ttie sake of appearances, to make a promenade in an open carriage on the Prado, with the King and the Queen mother. It is said here that she was so indignant at the arrest of Signor Morail, that she at first wanted to dismiss Narvaez. This, however, appears to have been got over, and it was arranged that Narvaez should resign the portfolio of foreign Affairs, in which he has been succeeded by the Duke of Sotomayer, formerly Anuassador at London. The Queen mother, with her husband, inhabit their own palace, but visit the Queen daily. Italy. Rome, October 22,1847. The sovereign Pontiff is proceeding with steadiness and energy in his system of enlightened reform. Since the date of our last correspondence a measure has been promulged which, in importance, even exceeds any thing hitherto accomplished. His Holiness has established a Council of State at Rome, in which the several provinces will be respectively represented. This body will, in fact, form the government of the country, of which th? Pope is the head ; it will be divided into sections, among which the different branches of legislative and administrative business will be divided ; one of the most important of its attributes will be its control over the finances, which will be most complete ?no taxes can be imposed, Or levied, or abolished, without its sanction?no loan can be contracted. or debt liquidated, or public contract concluded,without its approbation; in a word, it contains the precious germ of constitutional aod representative government and popular institutions. It is true that the plan is not yet perfect, and that the elective principle is not brought directly into play, but there is enough of popular spirit in it to ensure its ultimate growth into a vigorous constitution. ^.fhere has, ot course, been the usual popular exultation consequent ou tins measure. The i'ope and his liberal minister, Cardinal Feretti, have been the objects of magnificent ovations. Lord Minto, a i/uati ambassador from England, has just arrived here. You are aware that According to the English law, an ambassador cannot be accredited to the Pope. This technical dilKculty has been surmounted by sending directly to His Holiness a nobleman who is not ??i., . ...i..i._ i> m ?i Will J ?

This town and citadel still continue to be occupied by the Austrian troops, notwithstanding the asiurances we have constantly received of its.^approaching evacuation. The truth is, that AuHtria ottered to evacuate the town, retaining, howeveH" garrison in the citadel, as hart alwayB been done since 1815. This, however, was peremptorily declined by Home, and a denmnd was made for the evacuation not only of this town and citadel, but also for the evacuation of Gommachio. To this demand I'rincc Metternich demurred, und his objection has been rendered still more decisive since the abdication of the Duke of Lucca, for that event puts the fortress of Pontrenoli in the hands of the Archduchess Maria Louisa, as Duchess of I'arma, which is equivalent to its being In the possession ol Austria. Now the three lortrensea of i'ontreruoli, Ferrara, and Comxi>ichio. form the keys of Central Italy. By the lirst, Austria would command the Grand Ducby ol Tuscany, and by the last two she would hold in check the States of the Church. Upon the slightest pretext, she would thus have the power to overrun by her legions all Central Italy, where those principles of constitutional government that she most devoutly hates have taken root. Meanwhile, our population is subject to the continued.outragea of the Austrian soldiars. A? few day* ago an inoffensive individual waa in ulled by a untintl j on remonstrating ho wta !W YC w YORK, MONDAY MO brutally wounded with a bayonet, and the crowd which collected around to aid him, were fired upon by the poBt. Whether any satisfaction can be obtained for such outrages, remains to be seen. Fi.oRKNCK, Oct. 2*2, 1817. The abdication of the Duke of Lucca, and the transfer of that principality to the Grand Duke of Tuscany, has been productive of a hardship on a part of the population of this duchy which was not at first foreseen. By the treaty of Vienna, concluded in 1815, it was settled that whenever the duchy of Luccba ohm.M T..o/.?n? tl.~ ~r zano and Pontremoli, parts of the latter duchy, I should be transferred, the first tothe duchy ofMoi dena, and the second to the principality of Parma. Now, it will be remembered that at present the (imnd Duke of Tuscany, next to the Pope, is the ; moat popular and liberal of Italian sovereigns? I while the Duke of Modena and the Duchess of Parma are among those who are most retrogrnde, most arbitrary, and most detested. The population of Fivi/.uno and Pontremoli have, until now, participated in the benefits of the reformH effected by the Duke of Tuscany, and enjoyed those liberties and constitutional privileges which that prince conferred on his people. It can, therefore, be easily imagined how indignant they are at being transferred, like Hocks of sheep, from one master to the other, losing their liberties and constitution, and passing under the iron despotism of Modena and Parma. The greatest excitement on this subject prevails at present. A deputation from these cantons waited on the grand duke at Luccha, to implore of him not to abandon them. The grand duke has accordingly tried in vain to induce the sovereigns of Modena and Puma to accept a pecuniary indemnity, in lieu of the districts to be transferred. Ihere are particular reasons why Austria, which is th? real mistress of these petit States, desires to have these??ne of which is, that Pontremoli is a strong military position, and,with Ferrara and Commacchio, would give Austria the command of central Italy. The last accounts say that the inhabitants of these districts were determined tot to submit to be transferred, and had actually destroyed the bridges and cut trenches across the roads, to prevent tne approach of artillery. They also threaten to emigrate en masse. The Duke of Modena has not a disposable force of above 800 men, who could do little against a population of la,000, decided to resist to the death. In line, in the present state of pttblic opinion in Italy, and in the midst of the excitement produced by the reforms in the Papal States and in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, it is ditlicult to imagine how the governments of the adjacent Stales can continue stationary; but it is utterly impossible to conceive that the population ot any I provinces attached to those States in which reforms have been effected, and constitutional pi latij'ico auiJiitkcu, tuuiu facial vciy BUUIilll lO UC trnnsferred to the away of hopeless and unmitigated despotism. Feeble they might he to resist Uy themselves, hut the indignation which all hurope would feel at their situation,would be to them a tower of strength. Nevertheless, since the above was written, we have received letters which assure us that possession has been actually taken of one of the ubove districts by ihe Duke of Modena. Naples, Oct. 21, 1847. The government of this unhappy country is determined that its people shall be involved in Cimmerian darkness?an absolute prohibition is laid on the importation and exportation of political news. Intelligence is a prohibited article in the Neapolitan tariff. Newspapers are not permitted to arrive, and iione are allowed to be printed, except the official gazette of the utovernment, miB called "The Journal of the Two Sicilieiin which the King and bin ministers Resume tb? privilege of lying to a mensureless extent. Letters departing or arriving through the post office are unscrupulously opened, and if they are founa to transmit political intelligence, are destroyed. You will ask, in this case, now any information' can ever be obtained? But it is not easy thuB to seal hermetically a country; the demand for political news is too urgent not to meet with a supply, and if the legitimate dealer in it be stopped, the smuggler immediately steps in ; letters accordingly which would be stopped in the post ofiice, are transmitted, as occasion offers, by private hand; besides which, however willing king Ferdinand might be to sew up the mouths orcutoutthe tongues of travellers, his power, in that respect, is not quite as extensive as his will. The insurrection in the Galabriaa is nearly suppressed. This has, of course, been aecomI plished by brute force, and a system of torture and terrorism which has scarcely had a parallel, j even in the worst atrocities of the French revolution. Thus it is reported that the insurgents j taken at lteggio had been submitted by the police, for the recreation of the latter, to the process of having their hair and beards plucked out by the root, hair by hair. [When that city was bombarded by the steamers of King Ferdinand, shells were thrown purposely into the orphan asylum, where it was known that the children ?lw. mkukifonfu L.a/4 tolr... 1 A I Ul nit iiiuuuiinilio tfnvk mivcil iriu|(r.j Jl |>? l>clumation lias been circulated by the government, io which not only impunity is offered to all persons who shall murder certain persons specified by name, known or suspected to be engaged in the insurrection, but a reward for such assination, of 300 ducuts per head, ia actually offered. It is to be recorded to the credit of the people, that the worst of them are not so base as their King; not an mdividual was to be found who would seek a reward so infamous, and many, on the contrary, were.ready, at the risk of their own lives to aid in the escape of the unfortunate ' proscribed. 8 wider land. Heknk, October 28, 1817. Kvents have continued, from day to day, developing the elements of civil discord, and, although the public in different parts of Europe are unwilling to believe that the conflict will end in Swiss cutting the throats of Swiss, it is difficult here to see any other iuiue of tho present situation. The cantons literally bristle with bayonets ; troops arc everywhere marching and countermarching; entrenchinentsare thrown op, stockades constructed, guard-houses prepared, generals nominated, and proclamations issued. Hitherto, the seven cantons of the league have relied, in a great degree, on the probable intervention in their favor, of Austria ana France; and, indeed, such a measure was generally supposed probable, until within the last few days. It serms, however, now, that the utmost extent to which these powers propone to go, is to withdraw their ambassadors from the territory oT Switzerland, as soon as hostilities OOlMieiM. The AMIMI ambassador, who resides at Zurich, has already gi ven notice ol his departure to the trovernnient of that rmitnn. and he has coupled this notice with an explicit statement thut his withdrawal from Switzerland is not to he understood an any indication of an intention, on the part of Austria, to interfere in the internal allairs of the confederacy. In fact, he lias distinctly intimated thut no intervention will he attempted. This hat, of course, ureatly damped the spirits of the Honderbund. The delegates of the seven cantons ol the league hud a conference, yesterday, with M. Bois le Comte, the French ambassador, at which, it is understood, the Austrian ambassador was present, huviug arrived from Zurich incog, for thut purpose. Both the ambassadors strongly advised mutual concession ; and a further assurance was given to the deputies that no interventiun on the part of foreign powers would take placc. Another conference had taken place between the delegate# of the Sonderbund aud Mr. Peel, the British minister, by whom the same assurances were given, and the same advice offered. In consequence of all this, the deputies of the league nude a proposition to the general go\ernmeut, offering to dissolve the league, provided the Jesuns were allowed to remain. As this would, in fact, be concession only on one side, it was rejected ; and, accordirg to some reports,

the delegates of the Sonderbund are about to quit Berne to-day, for th?ir respective cantons ; according to others, they are about to submit to the Vorort a further proposition, offering to consent to the removal of the Jesuits, on condition that the cantons of the league shall receive an indemnity of two millions of frantf, to pay the vxp?at?? ot *h?ir war preparations, eiuyh a pr* J 1 . . 1 Li1 ' IRE 1 iRNING, NOVEMBER 22 position would, however, be declined. Meanwhile, it is said that M. Boia le Comte intimated that, in the course of a few days, the question will be settled by the arrival of the news from Home of the dissolution of the fraternity of the reverend fathers. Tnrkty, noMSTAOTINOFLK, Oct. 13, 1847. The alarm which has been excited here by the reported approach of the'cholera, has been much abated; no decided case has yet been manifested here. One patient in a vessel coming from Trebisond, had the disease and died in the Lar.aretto> but it did not spread further. At Trebiaond the epidemic augmented in intensity, and the mortality in proportion to the cases, was enormous ; but having reached its maximum, it declined, and is now disappearing; it iB, however, making progress in Russia, where it has followed a course northwards towards St. Petersburg and Moscow. The quarrel between Turkey and Greece still remains unsettled; it was expected that the death of M. Coletti, the late Prime Minister of Greece, would have brought it to an issue; but noimug 01 uic Mnu nas Happened. The mediation of Prince Metternich proved abortive, and the Russian cabinet has now taken the thing up with a view to an adjustment. The Porte ia adopting stringent measures. All commercial relations are suspended, the coasiing trade is stopped, and the exequators withdrawn from all Greek Consuls in Turkish ports. Nevertheless, war between the countries is not feared, as the great powers of Iiurope would rather interfere and compel a ucttlement, than permit such a general calamity. Ireland. Several matters of interest and importance have lately taken place in Ireland. That country still remains a prey to anarchy and confusion, so that murders?cruel, horrid, blood-thirsty murders?continue to disgrace the south and western provinces. The question of tenant right is now being much discussed and agitated, from one end of the kingdom to the otner. A kind of monster meeting was held at lulmacthomas, oil the itHh The object of the meeting was to take steps to promote the J' tenant right question. The requisition by which it was convened, bore the signatures of nearly eighty Catholic clergymen, including four vicars-general, twenty parish priests, and fifty curates, besides six hundred tenant farmers, and many respectable merchants and shopkeepers. Among the more prominent persons who attended the meeting, were Mr. John O'Connell, M. P.; Nicholas l'ower, M l'.; and Sir H. w. Barron. The speeches were lonz, and some of them fiery against the evils of the present system, which gave farmers no right or interest in the improvement of their land. Mr. O'Connell spolie at much length. The greater part of his speech had special reference to the repeal of the Union, and the advantage of having back the Irish Parliament in College Green. A petitiou to Parlia nient whs agreed oil ; and ufler some other minor business hud been transacted, the assemblage, which some of the Dublin papers estimate at twelve to fourteen thousand, quietly dispersed. An address, agreed to by the Uatliolic prelates of Ireland, hastieen presented to his Excellency the Lord Lieutenant. Doth the address and Lord Clarendon's reply, ure remarkable documents? the most important state papers which have been brought before the public for many years. The prelates, in their address, boldly, but in respectful lan?uuge, state the distress under which Ireland is at present laboring, and advert to the cause of her impoverishment. The poor law i state to be insufficient to mitigate, to the proi extent, the miberies and the privations of I poor. The conduct of the Irish peasantry is v dicated from ihc charge of indolence win is now being heaped upon them. The prela also alluded to the penal laws which had be enacted against the Irish population, and urgeu their repeal. The answer of Lord Clarwndou is certainly much applauded. He meets the prelates 011 every point; and from what they have said on the grievances of Ireland, he takes occasion to inculcate letmon* which, if acted upon, S?ifl do much towarda the regeneration of that unhappy land. Among the mclanchwly events of the day we must note the suicide of Professor M'Cnllagh, of the University of Dublin, which took place early last week. Ihe learned gentleman had brought on temporary insanity by excessive study. The usual weekly meeting of the Repeal Assoniutlnn tnnlr u t ( * i\ n n * 11 a i r?

The recent circulars of the relief commissioners, announcing to the respective unions the amount of the relief advances which have be?n remitted, the sum remaining due, and placing a sort of li-n upon the produce of the rates in bank, to the credit of the guardians, pending repayment ol the debt, has produced a sort ot ferment in some of the unions, whilst in others, for instance lielliiia, the communication of the commissioners has been received with thankfulness. In truth, a very large proportion of the advances has been wholly remitted in the more distressed districts; and with regard to the "impounding the rates," so much complained of^we are disposed to believe that some misapprehension exists as to the real object of the commissioners. Certain it is that an order lias been already received in some ot the unions, allowing the usual disbursements to be made troin the funds in banks for the expense of the workhouses. It ip likely that the commissioners merely seek to establish the right of controlling the tunds of the unions, whilst the residue of tiie advances remains unpaid. The re-appointment of 23 out of the 120 naval uuu iiiimaiy uiutria wnu buitcu uuuci iiic ICUCI commission last year in Ireland, is painfully indicative of the intentions of the government to take some measures tor the distribution of food during the ensuing winter. To what extent thin reliel will he carried is at present altogether conjectural ; but the frightful accounts of destitution which reach us irom the western coasts ot Ireland render some sort of government aid absolutely imperative. One of the lirst duties will be, when Parliament assembles, to take into consideration the state of Ireland. 91l?c?llMcoua.

Mexican War In England Tlie Eflhct oftat Capture of th? City of Mexico. [From tha London Time*, Oot. 35 ] The effect produced at Liverpool on Saturday, by the intelligence from America,was a singular indication ot the extent to which the best inte rems 01 two civuizea ana commercial countries are, in these times, identified. Information of renewed hostilities in India could hardly have excited tnore lively dissatisfaction than the tidinus that a Mexican peace was apparently as far olV as ever. If any citizen of the United States should be perversely persuaded that England desires either the discomfiture or embarrassment of his country, he need only obaerve how the arrival of each aucresiiive mail afficli our great commercial communitie?. Calculations of exchange and exports leave very little room for considerations of jealousy, and political conclusions altogether vanish,compared with the prospects of trade. It cannot be denied that the apprehensions of interminable hostilities excited by the late despatches, are fully warranted by the intelligence they brin^. indeed, it is not easy to discover a single point in which the position of the Americans is materially mended. The armistice, under the terms of which we lately left both armies snatching a brief repose, has been summarily terminated, if not abruptly broken ; and the renewal of the war ap pears to have been signalized by two engagements of unusual severity, in one of which the Americans suffered a decided, but not dishonorable repulse. It seeins that they broke up on the 8th ult. from Tacubaya, and assaulted a strong post at Chapultepec,situate about midway between Tacubaya and Mexico ; but that they met with a resistence so determined, or a force so overpowering, that they were compelled to retire. Intelligence, purporting to be of six days' later date, then states that Chapultepec had Itftfn miwf nurrtHil !?v Ktnrm nnri fliuf tli*? A tu??ris?un army had entered Mexico, Santa Anna retiring before them to Ciaudaloupe. The conduct of the American troop* throughout the wholt war, which, at far ax regard* their behavior in the field, doe* honor to the race from which they sprimg, will lead us at once to the conclusion that the last reports are highly probable, and that the previous reverse, if it ever happened, as is related, was brought about by some prodigious disparity of numbers or position. Still thismends matters but little; for neither the capture of the city of Mexico nor the display of national superiority is the object of Mr. Polk or his General, what they want is the submission of the enemy, and the conciliatory termination of hostilities; and s? far an* th *e ends from being attained,that the exasperation and pertinacity ofthe Mexicans increase on each defeat, and they have never de a nearer approach toa masculine or creditable deportment than at this very moment,when, according to all calculations, they ought to have been beaten into sure subserviency. The abortive negotiations which preceded the renewal of the war,and which will be found in a detailed form elsewhere, are in a high degree instructive,as indicating more conclusively than any other cviI dence could do, the intentions and confidence of I the respective parties. < >n the side of (lie United States "it was proposed that the boundary line of the two republics should run up the middle of the <;rande, strike off westward on reaching the limit of New Mexico, take the coursc of the (iila and the lower Colorado, and so through the mouth of the latter river down the middle of the California!! Gulf,int? the Pacific. In other words, this would bring the south-western boundary line of the United States about ten degrees further south, would deprive Mexico of all Upper and Lower California, as well as of the districts on the Grande,and would leave her with.the Gila for her northern boundary, but just above the present frontier of Sonora, which marks her settled territories. Enormous as was thisclaim, it was not the point upon which the negotiation* broke off, for the Americans phrased their requirements considerately, and offered a liberal price for the cession they desired. Santa Anna, it is true, waB for reserving a certain portion ol California, for Mexican expansion, and he suggested the :mh in place of the 32d parallel, as the boundary of the two countries. Yet it is hardly disguised that on the point of cession and sole in this quarter the Mexican commissioners were amenable to the reasons which Mr. Polk brought, by millions, against them, and the transfer might have been completed but for a comparatively insignificant slice of debateable land. The old Texan boundary line was agnin brought under discussion, the one party insisting on the Grande, and the other, as in honor bound, upon the Nueces; and this little difference proved incapaDie 01 aujummriu nciween p;trurs who had just been judiciously chaffering nbout ten degrees of territory! It is thus clear that from the great object which has been so iinliuppily nought by a war,the Americans are now only separated by an obstacle which that very war has raised. We have before expressed our persuasion that, looking at the natural destinies and necessities of men and states, the vast, province of Niw California would much more reasonably fall to the lot of an expansive and enterprising people. who might reclaim its wastes and colonize its shores, than mmain the nominul and desert appanage of a stationary or retrogading race which cmtla never have either the motives or the means to improve its advantages for commerce, <rr explore the resources of its soil. It is not the demand itself, but the manner in which it has been made, which has proved at once so discreditable and disastrous to the aggressors. It can scarcely be doubted that if the United States had quietly and sagaciously made the same offer before the war which they make now, the bargaiu might have been amicably arranged, and tne costs of the intervening hostilities,which, independently of blood wasted and credit sunk, amount to more than the whole purchase money of the desired territory, might all have been saved. This, however, then appeared too costly a policy, and bullying was substituted for barter by a Cabinet Wlllinir to acmiire >1 nrovinee without DaVine its just price. Advantage was taken of two flimsy pretexts to proclaim a war. With a signal forgetfulnessof her own indebtedness to foreign States, and of the outcry with which she had received a monitory intimation that compulsion on the part of a despairing creditor was strictly justifiable by international law, America announced her intention of enforcing, at 'he sword's point, the demands of her own citizens upon the citizens of .Mexico. The preference to be g'ven to on? of two contiguous rivers as a bound iry sii|>plied an immediate opportunity ol action, hiicI from the debatable strip between ihe Grandeand the Nueces, the .American forces marched inio Mexico, thinking to fix the terms and the period ol their own retreat, and to win, by a glorious and agreeable campaign, the land for which they were reluctant to j? iy down a more equitnble consideration. The proverbial fruits ot such policy are now before the world. Instead of the fortune they anticipated, tlu-y have now experienced eighteen mouths of distressing and unprofitable warfare, iri which they have indeed borne themselves bravely enough, 1 but in a cause so bad that nothing feju ihe most egregious compound of poltroonery and gasconade could have deprived their adversaries ol the sympathies of Europe. They have successively adopted in full confidence, and abandoned in utter despair, a hundred schemes tor convincing or ctmpressing their enemy into the desired docility. 1'hey have won a score of lighis without getting any nearer to their mark, and now. at last, after reaching the hostile can Ill by force ot arma, after deacnding to mollifying memorial* and deprecatory coi reapondf ncc, after undertaking to aatitdy troni the national exchequer thoae very private. deinanda which they had made h cause of war, and alter tendering for the coveted territory the very inoueya which they embarked in the war to wave, they Hod their propoaala deliberately rejected by an emboldened enemyt and thermelvea reduced to irtuta from which they can only eaca|?i by conceaaiona which would convict at once their tirat policy and their present perplexity, or by redoubled efforts ot DHnyuinary violence which may end no better than before LD.

The population of Paris is beginning to feel uneary with respect to the cholera, which appeared some time since in Russia, and everybody asks, will it reach France, as it did in th? year 1832! Ab yet, there uru several circumstances which ought to give us confidence. Its march is no longer the same, as it moves from north to east, una very slowly, being the contrary of what occurred in 1IW1 and 1832. A? that period its invasion caused ail explosion in all directions, and it <juickly attacked Russia, Poland, Prussia, Austria, Knzland, and France. It ha* ulrr:wlv In nnruiur i *?

Neither is it a reason th*t because it has appeared in some towns of Russia it should come to France. According to these considerations, it is not probable that it will visit us. If, however, contrary to our anticipations, it should manifest itself in France, there is one tact which ought to reassure us, which is that at first it marches mildly. The persons attacked have, therefore, time to demand assistance, and to receive it in time to be cured?its symptoms are less grave, and the mortality less great." The cholera is said to be on the decline in Trebizond; but even the last reports give the number ot deaths as amounting daily to from 10 to 15.

Downing ithtit, Oct 35, 1847. Gentlemen--Her .Majesty's geternment hare md with the deepest regret the preaaure which ha'a exiated for aom* weeka upon the ooinmerolal lntnreala of the country. and that thia preaaure haa been aggravated by ? a want of that oonfidenoe which ia necessary for carrying on the ordinary desllnga of trade. They have been in hopea that the check given to tranaaotlona of a speculative character, the tranafer of oapltal from other countriea, the influx of bullion, and the feeling which a knowledge of theee clroametanoea might have been expected to produce, would hare removed the prevailing distrust. They were encouraged in thla eipectatlon by the speedy cessation of a aimilar state of feeling in the month of April laat. These hopes have, however, been disappointed, and her Majesty's government have oome to the oonolusioa that the time haa arrived when they ought to attempt, by some extraordinary and temporary measure, to restore confidence to the mercantile and manufacturing oommunity. For this ptvpose they recommend to the directors of the Bank of England, in the present emergenoy, to enlarge the amount of their discounts and advanoes. upon approved security ; but that. In order to retain this operation within reasonable limit*, a high rate of interest should be charged. In preeent circomstances, they would suggest that the rate of Interest should not be Use than 8 per osnt. If this oourse should lead to any Infringement of tha existing law, hsr Majesty's government will be prepared to propose to Parliament, on Its meeting, a bill of indemnity. They will rely upon the discretion of the dlreotors to reduce, as soon as possible, the amount ot their note*. If any extraordinary Issues should take place, within the 1 limits prescribed by law. Her Msjesty's government are of opinion that any extra profit derived from this measure should be oarrind to the aocount of the public, but the preoise mod* of doing so must be left to future arrangement Her .Majesty's government are net insensible to the evil of any departure from the law whieh has placed tha currency of the country upon a sound basis; bat they feel confident that, in I lis present circumstance, tha measure whioh they have proposed may be safely adopted; and that, at the same time, the main provision* of that law and ths vital principle of preserving the eon' vertlbllity of the bank note may be firmly maintained.

[From the London Times, Oct. 8#.] That the Rank Charter Bill should have been virtually extinguished at the moment of it* first severe trial, can hardly be said to have been an unexpected event. That the step should have been announced this morning, however, is very generally a matter of astonishment. Had it been occasioned by a combined movement of its enemies during the pressure in the middle ol last week, or had its doom been foretold for the very first niijht of the next session of Parliament, no one would have felt surprise. Those who most admired its principle saw too plainly the effects ot its immutable action to look on with nnyihing but apprehension when the question of ita existence wan id oe uclmucu uy uic voluntary acquiescence of those upon whom its stern iesson was to he enforced.

It was admirable to see the pledge taken, but it was also easy to foretell the probability of its being broken. Hut, let that event occur when it might, it was always supposed it would be during the rush, and not at the subsidence of a panic. On Friday, in London, everything indicaied a greater feeling of steadiness. On Saturday accounts came from Liverpool of a "perceptible improvement from .Manchester it was reported, " everything here coniinueg quiet, and there is it more hopeful feeling beginning to prevail; while from America we had tidings of bullion on its wity, to the extent of upward* of a quarter of a million- With Monde y cune reports ot 11 meeting at Newcastle?on* of the great centres of excitement?expressing unreserved confidence in the banks, coupled with accounts of persons bringing back their money, and being very properly refused permission to deposit it ; white from St. f'eteriburgh, Am*ttt~ dam, and all parti of the continent, came tiding* of iven larger shipment* of gold than tliouc which had bten announced from America.
