In all the comments that have been m&de on the recent revolutionary movements in France ?md other parts of Europe, we have seen no allusion to the probable ultimate influence which they will exercise on the American continent, cltboueh a little consideration will show that it is high'y probable that such influence will be very great. Canada, for a number of years past, has evinced a disposition to sevjr her leadingstrings and take a station among the nations of the earth; and in the ordinary course of human occurrences, such a result would be achieved before many years would have elapsed, even if no revolutions had broken out in Europe. Now, however, when the wholeof the old world is in a blaze ?when Great Britain itself stands on the edge of a volcano, which may in a moment burst and envelope her whole fabric of government?when the greatest care and caution are necessary to I reserve her own safety and integrity at horn", Canada, it is not improbable, will take advantage of the crisis, and seek a separate and distinct nat onality. The times n*ver have been more propitious for a'tempting such a change; and from the course ot mutters there for several years, it would not cause much surprise if within a year or two from the present time, the political tie between that country and England were severed. The radicals, or republican party, have a powerful numerical strength, and have returned to the home parliament a majority of members of that creed. A great majority ofthe people in the lower province, especially the French, have always been hostile to the mother country, and in Upper Canada a strong party of republicans exist among the Irish settlers. The only persons there who have been or are friendly to the existing order of things, or disposed to favor a continuance of their colonial dependence, are the numerous officials and army and navy officers who have received grants of laud from the government, and their relatives and friends and the Scotch settlers Thepc are loyal, and will always remain so; but in point of nnmKf*ra tKair inflitun/ta t a fuv kulnur n f the republicans, or radicals, who are now in the ascendancy, and who, on recent occasions, have openly threatened to seek alliance with their republican neighbors of the United States. In making an effort to seek her independence, Canada would have the sympathy and good will of the people of this country; but nothing more. If, after accomplishing it, her people desired to fee incorporated with the United States, we do not think their desire would be gratified. Our territory has increased fast enough for our prosperity, and it would please our people more to see her a separate and independent republic, than to have her annexsd to the United States Yet such a proposition would be received with favor by a portion of our people?by the people of ihe New England States, and by the abolitionism of the country at large. They would cling to it as a means of overcoming the influence of tne South in our national councils; while the South would oppose it on precisely the same ground. We think it may bs said that while Canada would have the well wishes and sympathy of our people for the success of an attempt to be independent, they would not desire her to be annexed to the United States?not, at least, until a great many years shall have elapsed ?or until her annexation would be necessary to preserve a proper equilibrium between the North aud the South, in the event of further Mexican territory being added to our present limits. we shall watch the course ot events in Canada with great interest, for the future, in the expectation that the revolutions in Europe will exercise their natural influence there, and ignite the inflammable portion of her population, who, we have already shown, constitute the larger portion. Thus much for Canada; and from there the mind naturally turns to the British West India Islands, aud also to Cuba. ^ In the iormcr of these, great dissatisfaction towards the mother country prevails, in consequence of the destruction of all kinds ol busi1 ess, by the measures adopted towards those colonies by the British Parliament. They are, however, not us yet rrvolutionarily inclined; but Cuba is snd has been for some time past; and cannot be expected to remain much longer subject to the embecile government of Spain, which draws an immense revenue Iroin it, and draws it of its very life-blood A successful revolution there would be of more importance to the United Stales ihan ono in Canads; for Cuba, lrom her geographical position, could not siar.d alone, and would gladly seek an opportunity ot being covered with the flag ot this republic. It would be her interest, as much as it would be ours, to bo iueorporated into this Union. Krom her exposed situation, 6he would be liable at any time to be made a conquest ot by uny oi the great European powers?\ conun y'ocy whicli th? United States, for it* own safety, could not tolerate. As part ot the Unitt d States, she would be strengthened by the union, a: d we would secure the command of the Gulf of Mexico, which would be of the utmost importance to ua. Indeed, the importance of securing that island is b?comiug greater and greater every day, a- the improvements in ocean steam navigation progress. According to these vi?we, therefore, it maybe considered as not beyond the bounds of probabi- | lity, that the revolutionary movements in iiu- i rope will exercise an important influence on the Auiericau comment, and that a future,a uew era, "vill ere long dawn ii|x>n Canada, Cuba, and, i>er- 1 heps, the British West India islands, which will euiangb- us, more or less, with the old world ? j ft b< i.oovea us to be prepared for any emergency or contingency thai might grow out of such a st.?ie i f Uiiiicr; ut d to this end we should have a towertu ifesm marine, capable ?<t preventing ..ny sg. i - ioj on O ir r g its, or any d- sire to in ! voive os in a p< sitiou different trom a dianifie.' nru-ra ty?a spectator ol lie-mighty seri es thn hf now trail piring, and which may occur within a lew years.

Turn Cook of Proc*bum?Its Omuutionb. ?The supplement to the cod* of procedure, beiug already in f? rce, the courts at the City Hall hive presented unusual bustle and activity, with* 1 in the last few days?the members of the legal profession being more or leas busied in watching us operations in the law courts. Several of the older members ot the profession, having occasion to use their spectacles, and learn the new law, i like the veriest tyro of the profession, cannot relish the change?and behind these are another j- class of the profession, who have been smuggled into it under the old system, who cannot bear to be placed side by side with the younger members ot the profession. Doubts are expressed as to the validity, the legality, of this temporary act? ' but it is now the law, and must control, in as far as its provisions extend, the various causes in ! the law courts to which it is intended to apply? a law which has passed with all due solemnity, the Legislature at Albany. Cases which it is intended to govern, if conducted under the old system, must necessarily involve the parties bej fore the courts in fresh difficulties?and no matter what the opinions oi the opponents of the act, once it becomes the law, it must be obeyed. It would not be difficult, before the high; er tribunals, to upset proceedings in the ! law courts, carried on in violation of the 1 present act, and, therefore, in limine; the sooner | the wisdom and exj>erience ot the profession is brought to bear upon the matter, the better. To the opponents ot the new law, no matter what their objections, we would merely say, that if they consider the whole matter a "sill," they must swallow it, at all hazards. As a boon to the people, whose eyes have been blinded and hoodwinked by the former mystified course of practice, in pressing a suit at law, we have heard men of disinterested minds and intelligence declare that the new code is every thing that could be desired. The passage of this temporary act, and its operations up to the first day of July next, when the new law comes into full force, will enable the profession generally to drill themselves, and become acquainted with the new code of practice It is no easy matter to frame an act that will turn out perfection itseli during its first introduction. A temporary act con easily be introduced to cure detects, if any there be; but the members ot the bar must earnestly lay themselves down to their work, and let us sec how the machinery of the new code is likely to work. Ora Relations with Mexico.?Mr. Sevier, ; our Commissioner to Mexico, is reported to have said in reply to enquiries of citizens of New Orleans, as to the policy he intended to pursue, that he " would write no long letters, nor endure prolonged negotiations; and if he could not secure a peace speedily, he would at once assume a hostile position." We do not think it likely that Mr. Sevier ever made such a silly speech. In the first place, on long subjects, requiring long explanations, he would be obliged to write long letters, if he per| formed his duty well. A great outcry is raised againet long speeches, long letters, lie.; but a wise distinction is very necessary to be made on this point. Letters, speeches, &c., when necessarily and fitly long, are not an evil; it is 1 >ng nonsense, long verbiage, long speechifying about nothing, long letters with many words and few if any ideas,?these?these are the evil and the folly. A writing which does not do justice to the point which it bandies, but leaves it half finished, is too short. One extreme is as bad as the other. Thk Treaty wit* Mexico.?By the last accounts from Mexico, we learn that Messrs. Sevier and Clifford, the commissioners appointed by the administration to convey to that country the treaty of peace, as it was altered and modified by the United States Seuate, would soon arrive there; and the probability is that a long time will not elapse before we hear of that trf?tv being ratified by the Mexican Congress, and an order given for the withdrawal of our forces Tnat it will be ratified, we think there is not much doubt; for the recent revolutions in Europe will upset all the hopes of the monarchical party receiving any aid from that quarter; and besides, the very nationality of Mexico hangs on the issue?to say nothing of the payment of the fifteen millions of dollars by the United States, in annual instalments of three millions? a very tempting consideration at any time to the Mexican leaders. Santa Anna.?This truly extraordinary man, it appears, has applied for permission to leave Mexico, and it is supposed his intention is to go to Havana or Jamaica. Assuredly, the one legged Napoleon of the West hss led a checkered life. One time we see him fighting game cocks in Havana, after being dictator of his country? again we see him passing the blockade of Vera ! Cruz, with President Polk's free pass in his vest pocket ; again he is at the head of the Mexican forces, fighting against our troops, and flying after a defeat, leaving behind him his wooden leg Again we find, him crest-fallen, with but few supporters, and at length expatriating himself to Cuba, or somewhere else, to engage in his favorite amusement of cock-fighting. We wond r what the next shuffle of the cards of his destiny will turn up. Ma. Clay's Littxr.?A portion of the whig press is out with a vengeance upon Mr. Clav for the letter in which he signifies hia intention of consenting to run as the whig candidate. The democrats, on the other hand, hail hia acceptance with apparent joy, as a sure omen of whig defeat. We think they both may be mistaken, in supposing his election to be impossible. We repeat our beliet, which we bare asserted on former occasions, that Mr. Clay has perhaps a better chance this time than he ever had. If the delegates of the Utica convention are turned out of the Baltimore convention, as it is ex>>ec'ed they will be, it is highly probable the democratic candidate will Idle the voteaof New Y<>rk, and that Mr. Clay will, in that case, it nominated, get them Now, if he gets New York, there is an excellent chance of his election. Therefore, we repeat it, he never had so good a chance; but " there is many a slip," lie. Cs Aim cr Foeobry and Counterfeiting against Uncle Sam ?One of the morning papers yesterday contained the following astound>ng intelligence, in an elaborate leader : " Tber* *r? no sovereigns of full weight to bs bad Hfpi of Ihtm hart ietn caineiin tlir Jlmeriean minta, an4 10 reduesd In value oonsiderably." Now, if the United Slates mints have been coining the Uritish coin of the British realm, and so (that is, in the uct of coining,) reduced their real value, then, b'yond dispute, the American mmto, and, ergo, the American government, have been guilty of counterfeiting. This is really a s-rious charge made by our cotemporary, of which the ever active British government will, uo doubt, take immediate notice. We apprehend there is some mistake ; but if not, Uncle Sam must undoubtedly, if convicted, go to the penitentiary, and be placed in quod, as well as the correspondent of the Herald.

It wm received at New Orleans from Vera Crnz, on the Idth inst. It aeema that the prospect of a prompt ratification of the treaty was not so bright as has been 1 heretofore represented. Indeed, the idea of its receiving the sanction of the Mexican Congress is said to be scouted by the better portion of the i population. News of the impeachment of Gen. Scott is also communicated. The court martial was still progressing, but none of its proceedings are transmitted. The proceedings in Congress yesterday, were i interesting, in several particulars, to the people of this vicinity. For a report of which, with j other matters, see the despatches below. - .. , , BXftBLTZ IMPORTANT j FROM MEXICO. Impeachment of General Scott. Ratification of the Treaty Doubted. The Arrest of Pare ? eg, for an Attempted Revolution, fee. &c. fcc. Augusta, April 17,1848. The overland express hus arrived, bringing New Orleans dates to the 13th inat. The ship Christiana had arrived with advices from Vera Cruz to the 4th iast., and the steamer Washington, which lett Vera Cruz on the 3d with dates from the Capital to the 30th ult. This bnnga us four days further proceedings of the Court Martial, which are, however, too voluminons to report. General Scott has been impeached, and the testimony of paymaster Burrows was being heard for the defence. It was tne general opinion among Mexicans of the better class, that Congress would not dare ratify the treaty Lieutenant John Smith, of White's company of mounted men, deserted at Vera Cruz on the 30lh, taking several men along with him, belonging to iiis company He offered their services to Zenobia, the Guerilla chief, who kept them prisoners, and sent word to Gol. Wilson, who sent after them They arrived at Vera Cruz well secured. The Free American was quite indignant. Since the Mexican authorities have been restored to power, Paredes attempted a revolution, and was reported to have been arrested by orders of the government Intelligence had been received, confirming the rumor ol Santa Anna intending to leave Mexico, and adding that he had refused the steamer off-red by Governor Wilson for his conveyance. G^n Scott was hourly expected at Vera Cruz, and the Court Martial had adjourned to the United States^ Tlx* Runaway Slaves Captured \fTAIrs In Waslklngton_more Arrests to be made by Uae Senate, die, Siu Washington, March 17, 1848.

I J?j;- > v... vii 10 x/iou iti?ouiiic bay uiie nuriurra in dil? has been captured in Chesapeake Bay. She is a schooner, and came round from Jersey with a load of wood. Doubtless, the object of the trip was to carty the slaves in question to the North. The abolitionists may be safely charged with the transaction. The schooner, under a good breeze, had got into Chesapeake Bay. one hundred and fifty miles below this city, when captured by a steamer from Baltimore, several others having been sent alter her, on receipt of telegraphic advices from this city. Citizen Pageot's furniture sells at high prices. It is said that Gen Pillow's nomination will not be sent into the Senate after the developements in Mexico. Nothing has been done in the case of Mr. Nugent to-day. We understand the Sergeant-atArms of the Senate has his eye upon another victim, and that Watson Webb will also be sent tor, the treaty having appeared in his paper as an orignal document.

Centrevillk Course, L I.?The trotting yesterday afforded considerable delight to the speotatora, tha matoh being won by Stranger and the purse by Medoc. A report of both oonteata will be given to-morrow, the space allotted to the following interesting raee at Naw Orleans being aa mnoh as we pan apart to-day. Metaisie Jocet Club Racks ?The Picayune states that the four mile day over thl* course on tbe 8th Inst., was lnflnitelv more interesting than tnv one snnnaaad it would bo. and the " knowing ones" were taken in to no inconsiderable amount by the result, as unlooked for as It was brilliant. The attendance was much bettor than on any of the previous days of the meeting. and the oourse was in mueh batter order, although rigid and inelaetio. The day was moat beautiful?as balmy and spring like as any one oould possibly desire. The raee, as it is well known, was for the olub purse of (700, entranoe added, four milelieats, with an inside stake of (3000 to $1600 on Revenue against Charmer, the two nags entered for the raou. Revenue having distinguished himself by previous performances, and little oonfldenoe being pieced in the capabilities of Charmer in a four mile raoe. the odds were greatly In favor of Revenue. In the eity, prior to tbe raoe, it waa even thought that Charmer would not start, and money was staked on this opinion- Most extravagant odds ware offered In favor of Revenue, and in many instances went a begging, both in the city and on the oourse, prior to tbe first heat; two, three, four, five, and even aix to one, were offered in hundreds, and not taken up too greedily et that ?Both horse* were in good oondition when brought out, but while all looked confidently upon Revenue, Charmer's friends experienced the most unplceant doubts The result, as unlooked for ? it was grateful to her baokers,will show how the fondost expe ctatlons often fail to be realised, and how the knowing one are sometimes deceived. Before the firat beat was run the judgea announoad that Charmer had paid forlelt ou the inside stake, and would only run for the purse This tended to shake what little oonfldenoe the backora of Charmer had in her, and they were almost willing to give up the stakes to be let off. At the tap of the drum both nags got off, Charmer having the track; but rouud the first turn Revenue crossed her path, aod led through tba firat mile From this time out Charmer showed her mettle by taking the lead and maintaining it In most gallant style throughout the heat, winning with eaaa. notwithstanding Revenue caught the persuaders and the lash several times, coming down tbe home stretch. The ahouta that rant the air as Charmer took the heat ware most enthusiastic. and the backers of tke horse looked either very blank or very much bothered. The time waa 8.3d.

Hoyt, trom Matanzas, we are in re. ceipt of tiled of El Uiurio dt la Marina to the lat inst. Later new* thttu this has been received; but we extract aotne items thaf have not as yet beea given The JJiario publishes in lull a Spanish translation of the treaty with Mexico, taken from the iV>u? York Herald. The only remark it makes upon it is, that it is difficult to foresee what the I course of the Mexican government regarding it will be. "It is possible," Bays the Havana editor, "that u quorum cannot be assembled to give a legal answer to it, or that Congress, it convened, will disperse as soon as they have heard it read." Various departments have already declared against any cession of territory, and it is even said that General Santa Anna has given up his intention of exiling himself, and that he has succeeded in organi'.mg a considerable party, who are resolved to oppose, with force of arms, any treaties winch may involve a cession ot territory. Some ot the details of the French revolution are given in the Havaua _ papers; no comments, however, are made upon it. l)ttes trom Valparaiso to the 29th January had been received at Havana; they have been anticipated here, however, as we some time since, in th<: Herald, gave the news from that part of the world to the 12'.h February. It being the season of lent, the theatres and other places of amusement were closed in Havana. The only item of musical news that we see is that the Sociedad Habanera were about to give Noronha, the Portuguese violinist, a benefit c< ncert The news from the interior of Cuba is devoid of interest. lhe Fine Arts.

Count D'Orsty'? portraits are said by good judges to be equal to the portraits of the famous Vandyke. This is grsat praise but we believe It is not axaggerated. Theatrical and Musical. Italian Opera House ? Considering that there will be ne other performanoe during this week, tho attendance last ovsnlng was very si] m, when the bouse should have been erowded. Verdi's grand opera of " Nabuoo" ejuld not havo been better performed ; all the artists played with energy, and were In exocllent voloe. Siguorina Truffl, deservedly a favorite, was oheered in every seen*, while an* poured forth in thrilling harmony a suocession of the sweetest and most delightful cadences ; her blinding of half tones und execution of chromatic loalea were surpaSfcingly beautiful, and were rendered eith the greatest musical precision Slgnorinn Patti wti equally conspicuous. although there U not much opportunity for display in the oharacler of Phonena Benevestsno fu admirable ; he auatalned the part of Nabuoo with great foroe, while he gave evidence of a good oonoeptiou of the author, in proper geetionlation. and in tone* ao round and sweet that he called forth the unanimoue plaudits ot the audience. Sign or Rnsl, as Ztchariah, woe excellent; he possesses a fine baritone, which is managed with great musical ability. The choruses were rendered with great harmony, and the entire pteee passed off with great eclat. ''Neouco" is decidedly a beautiful piece, either as regards its teenio effect, or the high uharaoter of Verdi's musio. It possesses many beautiful gems, and it lost nothing in representation while in the hands of the oharmlng Truffl, whose melodi on* notes and scientific ex'ontiou have won for her lasting fame. We would suggest the introduction of tome of Rossini or Bellini's mnsic when they next opin, as a too frequent repetition of old pieees will not piove profitable to the management. Bowser Theatre ? Auber's opera of "Fra Dlavolo" was performed last night, before a large and fashionable audience. The Bowory is decidedly improved by the tate alterations in the arrangement of the boxes; the light eolors in which the walls are painted, the handsome manner lu whioh the fronts of the boxes are adorned, and the fins light which is shed all over the house by the gaa lights, (the gas, we believe, is made In the theatre, so the New York Oaa Company deserves no credit for the clearness ef It,) and an audience such as was assembled last evening, all combined to make the house look admirable. Besides all this, the performances on the eta** were most oapital. Every one knows the story of Fra Dlavolo, that prinos of Italian brigands; ba was well acted by Mr. Oardner, who sung tbe music with prooision and taste. Heguin, as Qlaoomo, was admirable?it is s part Just suited to bis style of performing Without meaning anything personal towards Mr. 8., we must sqy he makes a most capital cut-throat on lbs stage; his pantomime, by-play, tie. is all inimitable, and his rieh has# voles ehimea iu finely in the conoerted pieces. Bautr, as Beppo, was very good-he Is quite an audition to the Segulu troupe.

The choruses, Aceiiery, hi. were well managed, and reflect rnuca credit on the stage director. l'ue grand ballet of "La Giselle," with Miss Xurnboll as toe tairy, eenoladed the erenlng's amusements. To-night, the same bill is to be repeated. Chatham Theatre?Never, upon any occasion, did this popular theatre present each a scene as on last eveuing, in consequenoe pf the rait crowds that flocked forward to witness the performance of the new ltetl extrevsgansa, entitled ' New York as It is " In the early part of the evening, every available place of accommodation within the theatre wasorowded to excess, . long before the oominenoement of the evening's encerj talument The ' Brigand," which preceded the new and attractive pieoe, was beicg performed, when the | oruwj became so great th it those who were in the front seats in the pit were foroed to take refnge, for a time, in ' that part of the tbeatie allotted for the orobestra. The I shouting and confusion here became almost alarming, and no sooner had those who fled there been teste 1 ! dowa, when another rush from behind caused tbsm to start on tba stage, over the gas lights, and the play was | stopped.

Several made their way to the box keeper's offloe and doors, and were paid back thslr uonay. The police and altacAes of the theatre hereupon commenced to elear the irent of the stage, amid the most deafening cheers; and some ef the young " b'boys" were to be seen springing forward on the heads of their dlfl'erent groups of frisuds. from the etege, whom they soon joined in the pit, amid continued laughter. Tha hnmorous character who called mil " nnnU.m. bin," ugain made hit appearance, which waa the signal for a fresh storm of cheering and laughter. After muob delay, all waa tranquil aa the " unruffled anrfaoe of the ocean in a calm," and never did a scene of this kind p?at off with better humor. We did not learn of a single accident On enquiry In the proper quarter, It was slated that betwaen tnosa who bad left the thaatra and those who were unable to get aooommodstion or make their way in,over one thousand mast bare left.

Pobser did not think tbe matter should be pressed through without a due consideration of the mutter; end he did not think the thoughts of any member of the Board should have any weight while they were noting under tha statute. Aid Kelly said there were now one hundred and fifty in the cffloa, and tbay had prepared one hundred and fifty others to till their plaeea.

The preamble and resolution were lost Aid.
