Vw York, Thursday, Dccembtr 9, 1847. Tile Foreign HI alls. The mails of the steamer Britannia will pro bably reach this city ttys evening. She did not arrive Ht Boston until after the mail train left that city yesterday afternoon. Tile English IVtwi. We received lust night, and publish in thin day'a paper, the sub9t><nce of the English news received yesterday at Boston by the steamer. It is highly and deeply important. The rise in corn and cotton jb most significant and extraordinary. It is true that after the accounts were received at Liverpool from this city, giving a statement of a large crop, the article reeded .lightly ; but still the broad and general f*ct exitts, of arise in these 'wo important staple^> of the United States, and this, too, in the midst . uf a revulsion in the money market in England. It must be admitted that there seems to be a lull in money affairs there, for the present; failurrs still take place but they are few, and farbetween? and there is greater ease in'the money market A large French loan of 250,000,000 of francs' equal to ?10,000,000, has been taken by the Rothschild*, without producing any eff-ct in London, and from this circumstance, it is highly probable that a great deal of the stringency in London, a*d elsewhere, was produced. We have said the rise in cotton and corn, in the f*ce of such a revulsion in England, is extraordinary. It is so. England and its dependencies were blessed with bountiful crops last season. In the face of this, we see a rise in corn, proving conclusively that they must import lnrsft ini -'ities for consumption. If the rise Tins tirly in th$ day as it has, the increase in the c? must be greater as the sf&son advance' . This demand undoubtedly springs from the rg? population of England and Ireland, and the natural deficiency of the crops from the nature of the limited quantity of territory. They have the population, and they r* Jst be fed; and if they have not the food, of course they must import it, at any price at which they can get it. It is much the same with cotton ; the manufacturers must have a supply, and although a revulsion in ?the money market may temporarily reduce the price, still, in the end, it will recover itself. These views of the cotton and corn markets account for the recent int?-lli> gence, and the same views also point to the probability of a similar revulsion taking place in the money market on a future day, to those we have seen take place. The exchanges, by the imports of cotton and corn, will be turned against England; the specie that has been flowing from the Uoited States for a short time past will soon t __i_ a i i-- * 1 ctmc imCiv Anoiaer p>tnic win uc urcmeu in the course of a few months. We will, however, have a lull, a quietude, but it is very doubtful if it will ever be permanent, although many on thia and the other side will indulge the belief that it will be, and that all danger is over. Thus far in relation to money affairs. On the continent, extraordinary thingB are taking place ?suicides, and murders, and fatalities a la Pmxlin. The Count Bresson, who was the agent of Louis Philippe in negotiating the Spanish marriages, could not stand his conscience any | longer?so he cut his throat, and went to the other world as fast as he could. Otuer distinguished persons have followed him. The war has begun in Switzerland, and where it will end, no one can tell. Conspiracies are hatching in Pari*. In short, the whole continent ia ia a state of doubt, difficulty and danger, together with England. A full account of the present state of England and the old world, and many things beside, will be found in to-morrow's p'per Tiik Post Office?Mr. Polk, in his message, ee cm a quite delighted with the idea that Cave Johnson, by his management, has made the Department pay its own expenses. But look at the sscrifices ! Look at the hundreds and hundreds of failures, and the derangement of all the foreign mails ! The American people don't care about a few hundred thousand dollirs, nor even a few millions, provided they can have their business done with promptitude, fidelity, deci Ision ana accuracy, uur amnestic mails could not have been worse managed than they have been during the last year. The number of failures has been enormous; and as to the foreign mails, we all know what they are. It may be alleged, however, that the arrangement of the foreign mails lies with foreign government*, and that the derangements are owing to the obstinacy of these governments. But when Cave Johnson turned his attention to the organization of ocean steamers and foreign mails, he ought to have preceded his arrangements with the necessary and proper negotiations, in order to sreure succesM and regularity, as soon as these steamers began to run. Instead, however, of doing this, be paid no attention to these foreign negotiations in relation to postages; but alter his blunderings were made apparent, then for the first time he sent out Major Hobby to mend and repair his errors, with, however, little it any prospect of success. We adher* to our opinion, that he is the most | illiberal?tlie most narrow-minded and the most blundering Postniaeter General, that has ever I br u intli'". 1 upon the Department. We cannot I i ?tm ! character as a Postmaster, as Mr. I oik bM done ; but we think he would make a I oepitsl flbykek in Wall street. I \Voht)Fhs and Profits op thi: Telkurai-h.?

The steamer reached Bostou about six o'clock, 1 and the following intelligence waa immediately transmitted to this city over the wires. THB NEWS. The advices trom Liverpool are 10 we i?tn ult., inclusive. The British Parliament was convened on the 18th No business was transacted beyond the mere ceremony of opening, which wfcs done by royal commission. The corn market, in Liverpool, on the 19th, to 2 o'clock, waB steady at the quotations. The attendance was very fair. The French loan of two hundred and fifty million of francs, has been adjudged to M. de Rothschild, at 754, which was the minimum reserved; the adjudication had little or no effect upon the English market. An announcement reached London on Monday, that a formidable conspiracy had been discovered in Paris, wTiich had the effect of seriously depressing the English funds for a short time. The committee of the stock exchange hul commenced an investigation into the circumstances connected with the report, but it could only be traced to Folkstone, from which it was received by the electric telegraph. Hostilities have at length commenced in Swit1 1 . ai. . r j tc? zenana, iu me lorunra cny ui rnucig, ouine skirmishing had taken place, in which the troops of the Sonderbund were worsted. Count Bresson, French Ambassador at the Court of the Two Sicilies, committed suicide an the 2nd ult.j and a short time previous, Count Mortier, French Ambassador to the Court of Turin, attempted to murder both his children, and to cut hi* own throat, while laboring under a fit of insanity. Dr. Felix Mendelssohn Bartlmldy, the eminent composer of "Elijah," died suddenly at Leipsia, on the 4th ult., in the 39th year ot his age. A convention has been entered into between the Pope, the Grand Duke of Tuscany and Lucca and the King of Sardinia, for the formation of a tariff, bas? d upon the principle of the German Commercial League. The measure has been hailed throughout Europe with the greatest possible satisfaction. The state of Ireland is truly frightful. A system of agrarian resistance is every where manifested ; landlords daily falling before the vengeance of the people. The French mail steamer Union was to leave Havre on the 24th ult., her departure having been delayed in consequence of the injuries which her machinery suffered upon the last voyage from New York. The Sarah Sands will resume lie*r place upon the line on the 22d January. The British and North American steamers will continue to run fortnightly during the winter, until the new vessels shall be ready, when i the spring will commence with a weekly mail; the new arrangement will take effect on the 1st of January, on which day the Cambria will sail from Liverpool for New York. The packet ship Stephen Whitney, was totally lost at 10 o'clock, P. M., of the 10th ult., on her voyage from New York to Liverpool, under circumstances the most perfectly appalling, that the imagination can possibly conceive. Mis taking the light upon Rock Island, near Cape Clear, on the south coast of Ireland, for the Old Head of Kinsale, she continued her course, intending to make Cork Harbor, but in less than a quarter of an hour, with a suddenness which defied all human effort to avert her fate, she came broadside on a rock called the West Calf, four miles inside the Cape, and in less than ten minutes after striking, she dashed to atoms, overwhelming no less than ninety-two of her helpless crew and passengers. Eighteen only, of one hundred and ten, succeeded in clambering up the face of the rock which forms a wretched island, containing three fishermen's huts. . . The following is a list ot the officers and crew that perished:? Char lei W. Popham, muter, Irishman; Robert OU1. 2d mate. Englishman; Thomas Bills. George Raymond and Wm Browne, N.

Elnanclal Intelligence* London Montr Market, Nov IS ?Contrasting tha operations of trade and the general aspect of the monetary affairs of the country for the last fortnight, with those of the preoeding. It la gratifying to observe that a slight, but still a peroeptible improvement has tak>n place. Nevertheless, this reaction, so well begun under the combined Influence of returning confidence and a gradual relaxation of the money pressure, has, within the last few days, been greatly affected by some additional failures, the most serioua of whioh baa been the stoppage of Tru | nin & Cook, of London, an eminent brokerage bouse, I wboM liabilities are estimated at ?350,000; Altbougb the price of money it still hlgtk and insolvencies are rife, the farj of the panic ba? been stayed, and the prridge of brighter and happier days can be distinguished amidst the darkuees of the paat and the gloom of the present Trade Is evidently making Vigorous struggles to rise. Money is yet most dlffljult to be had.? Commercial distress has not been materially assuaged; bat hope is hlgb, and the future is promising. Towardi the latter end of last week there was a decidedly more cheerful feeling exhibited in the manufacturing districts, and an Id creased business was done, particularly by private treaty. The failure of Truman ti Cook, before alluded to, cast a serious gloom upon the market, and although the casualty does not affect Manohester or its neighborhood to noy considerable extent, yet It must produoe results unfavorable to general jcredit, and retard, for a while, that gradual approach to wall revived confidence so essential to the eommerce of the country. The English funds, for the past fortnight, have suffered less fluctuation than for a considerable time previously. Though they have suffer, ed many ohangna, they bave displayed greater firmness with aa unequivocal tendency to asoead. Their steadii nesa has been considerably promoted by tho lmporta! ti in of foreign gold, amounting to nearly one million five hundred thousand pounds.

Thi Mkssaqk ^Auain.?We have read over this document again and again, in order to admire it beyond any thing we ever felt towards a message; but we must confess that we can't bring ourselves up to the highest point of admiration at all. The materials are brilliant, we admit; but the production itrelf is extremely lame, ungrainmatical, badlv uorded, full of repetition, loosely put.togeiher, and presents no condensed views, statements, or ideas. It is the worst written message that ever came from Mr. Polk'* hands. Why it ia so, is beyond all comprehension, unless it arises from the oppression occasioned to his mind by the magnitude and sublimity of the materials before hiin. In our estimation, it is common place and common rate,although it contains useful information,but no thing that has not been discusstd in the independent newspapers for months before. Only on one p*int does it show any briiehtness or decision of character, and that is in the recommendation to form a civil government in New Mexico and California. The proposition to Congress to create a civil government in those territories is decisive and particular, and will at once bring up all the immaterial and subsidiary issues which have heretofore created so much talk throughout the country. It will present to Congress at once, the Wilmot proviso The proposition, in itself, is just a id proper. There is no use in delaying any longer, out of delicacy towards M xico. Let us take the matter into our own hands?let us take indemnity for the past at once, by taking possession of California and New Mexico, and security for the future by holding on to the rest of Mexico, till the people of that country come to their senses, and organise a permanent government.? If they cannot organise a permanent government, why, then, the whole of that republic will fall on our hands, like a waif on the ocean, for better or for worse. In the meantime, we approve of the proposition of organising a civil government in New Mexico and California; and it is fnll time, too, that something should be done in Oregon, of the same kind. While we approve of a great many recommendations in the message, we must still withhold any admiration for its composition, its construction, its wording, or its general arrangsment of topics. In fact, the telegraphic condensation, imperfect as it w&s, seemed to be a better written production than th? roal document itself. Curious Facts.?In. looking over the estimates for the appropriations necessary for carrying on the operations of government, laid before Congress by the Secretary of the Treasury, we tind the following curious facts* The total numi _ e i iL . i. i a _r oer 01 tamps in me iiuui nouse cBmimeuiiiciii ui the United States, is 2976.

TSk Ctt*mncy aorration ?A v?rjr curioal aad important article will be found in anothel part ot tins diy'a paper, copi-d from a morningl journal of tome importance and influence in Wall street, in reference to the curreucy questions agitated in that region. I This m iy be conaidered a breaking < f tliel gruuud in the approaching struggle, relative lol the principles on which the currency of thial country ought to be matiuged hereafter. Fori some time past certain speculative interests ml Wailaireet, or those which are in favor of atil inflation of the currency, huve been dissatisfied! with the policy pursued by some of the banks. I There is a crtdin class of our business men, I otherwise very intelligent and useful im m- I bers of society, vvhn possess some question- I able notions 011 the subject of the currency, I and who are anxiou', in every possible w v, I to get up a tpiril favorable to an infla- I tin of the currency, an inflation of price*, I nd tint same redund ncy ot paper money, I I wiucu caused tnc revulsion 111 tins country in 1837. On the other hand, there is a I few of the buiks conducted by numied men, on I sound principles of finance, which arc in oppo- I siiion to this policy of inflation or speculation. I Tnese banks ure generally known to be the Na- I tionul Bank, the Bank of America, and the Mer- I chants' Bank. The policy pursued by these H bunks is founded on correct principles; princi- H pies which are identical with those of the sub- fl treasdry, practised upon by the general govern- H raent. H A banking system, however, conducted on H these principles, is very hostile to an inflation of H pric?s, and to that ready mode of getting rich H by speculation, which too mauy men among our H commercial classes are apt to indulge in. Wo H see the tendency of this principle in the present H condition of Eogland. A very strong intertat H is organising in London, and throughout Eng- H land, in tsvor of creating a paper currency not convertible into specie, and merely nominal and illusory. Such a system of currency, if adopted, will so^n lead to a terrible revolution in that country, and overthrow its commercial and other departments of society. In other countries, a revulsion similar to that which we had in 1837, would have created a bloody revolution, and changed the form of government. With us, it created merely a civil revolution, and ousted the party in power at that day. In the present state of things in this country, in connection with the currency, the policy of the three banks in Wall street, which have been denounced,is the only correct'policy to purtue;and ifthere are any banks conducted on similar principles in Boston, Philadelphia,Baltimore,or elsewhere, they ought to form a combination to manage their affairs, and control the currency of the country on similarly sound principles, which appear to have Ijeen adopted by those banks in Wall tlrMl. I'nlcnH rtfiin^ihinir of thin kind ia ilnn? the commercial affairs of this country will undergo some unfortunate disturbance before a year haa passed away. By a combination of certain banks on these principles?by a concentraiion of their efforts, and a deposit of their moneys in this city or in London, they would H very soon not only regulate the currency of this H country, but also the foreign exchange, which H ire now regulated by the Rothschilds and others, H for their individual interest. Heretofore the H exchanges have been under the control of the H Baring*, the Rothaehilds, and other large houses; H it is time the system was changed, and that fl American, and not foreign, interests managed H the exchanges, as well as the currency, of thi* I country. I Abolitionists and Anti-Abolitionists.?For a long time past, that school of philosophers call ed abolitionists, in the North, have every year I held their conventions in this city, and every I year passed resolutions for the immediate disso- I lution of the Uuion. Those resolutions have I been passed in public hall*, regularly and un^ni- I mously; but unfortuuatrly for their movers, the I Union will not dissolve. I We remember when a boy to have seen a mad* I man take his stand under a great tree, and look I up at the nun at noon-day. When interrogated as to his object, he said he went there to wind | up the sun, and thus prevent the world from i coming to an end. He believed that the sua would stand still unless he wound it up. One i day, however, the World treated him so badly 1 tha^e was determin-d to bring it to an end,out i of spite, by ueglecting to wind up the sun. He 1 accordingly went to his post as usual, but with | a determination not to wind it up,which he kept; but notwithstanding his neglecting to wind up ' the orb of light, it went on its course and sunk behind the hil^s of the west as usual, and rose the next morning aa usual. These movements, resolutions, convention*. and solemn declarations, by the enthusus's of p the north, or any where elae, are very much like the determination of the madtnan to bring the world to an end by refusing to wind up the son. I Of lute, the enthusiasts of the North have kept > quiet; but we must have alwtiya the same quan1 turn of madman and madness in the world; and > accordingly we find Mr. Middleton, of South Oerolina, introducing into the legislature of that State,a series of resolutions, declaring that if the Wilmot Proviso should pass Congress, South Carolina will be at liberty to form e new government of its own. Well, if South Carolina should do so, what of it 1 She is at liberty to do it whenever she chooses. Why don't she do it 1 Aoy man can pass resolutions to form a separate government for himself?any number of men can do the same thing?the abolitionists and anti abolitionists can do the same, and put themselves in the posiiion of the man who would not ' wind up the sun, in order to bring the world to i an end. The institutions of the Southern States are their destiny, thrir misfortune, and their advantage. Ther* are few intelliuent p-opie in the 1 United Sute*, with the exception of the aboli tiomttsand the ecoundrt-lly politicians?who um such questions to humbug the people?who (Jo not oelievr that the nave institutions of the South be long to themselves, and never should be touch* ed, ia any way, byany other part of the country. The colored race of the South are happier in their present condition, better provided for, and more c-imfortabke in every respect, than the same race at tha North, or the white race of laborers in Europe. All the nonsense, philosophy and affected sympathy uttered by politicians on the subj ct, are the merest fanfaronade in the world We are sorry to see such men as Mr. Middle* ton giving encouragement to such notions, or attaching consequence to them, in such a way as he has done.
