SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE OF T1IE NEW TOES HERALD. &C> &c? The steamship Cambria, Captain Harrison, arrived yesterday morning from Liverpool, whence she suited on the 29th ult., and thus made the passage, including her stop at Halifax, in fourteen days and eighteen hours. Our papers and letters, from London as well as Liverpool, are to the 29th ult. inclusive. The news from the Continent of Europe continues to be of an exciting character. Arming in Ireland progresses with great rapidity and enthusiasm. The diminution of bullion in the Bank of England was exciting attention. It is not unlikely that a considerable sum had been sent to France and Holland, and also to Ireland, to meet any run arising out of the apprehension for the savings banks. Importations during the week were large from Calcutta, Madras, St. Helena, Port Philip, new ront, roriugai, wcbi inaies, Singapore, uape of Good Hope, Fernando Po, Cape Coast Castle, and St. Petersburgli. The cotton market was quiet during the week ending the 2!hh ult. The low and middling qualities were about one-eighth below the last quotations; but fair Upland continued to sell at 4^d; lair Mobile 4Jd. In the value of fair Orleans we note an advance to '4{d, the latter being required for export. The sales of the week are 30,940 bales, of which exporters have taken 5000. The adviceB from the manufacturing districts throughout England and Scotland, are, in some respects, more favorable than those previously received. There had been considerable business done in Manchester, especially in goods suitable for India, China, and the Levant, but at prices lower than the previous week. There is not much improvement in prospect, and the spinners and manufacturers are very heavy losers, notwithstanding the cheapness of the raw material. Yams are lower in price, and but little business doing. * All kinds of breudsiuffs arc in good demand, and prices had an upward tendency. The steamship United States will not leave Liverpool for New York until the 17th inst. There were no vessels in sight off Ilolyhend or the port on the 29th ult., although the wind was west. It is said that M. Lamartinc has concluded a treaty offensive and defensive between the French republic, Switzerland, the Italian States, and that portion of Germany represented in the Diet at Frankfort. Our London Correspondence. Lo!?do*, April 28. 1848?P. M. Summary of the Foreign Intelligence. Honor to vrhoin honor Is duo ! America. tho free, wild tho first to give a lister's hand to the young republic of France. Tho elcctrlo spark of liberty thrilled like magic through the heart of every citizen iu the United States, and the banner of tho United State* was the first to cutwino its glorious folds with tho tricolor, amidst the shouts of euthusinsm of n people whose fetters had just been severed asunder. America ho i repaid the debt sho owed to France, who was tho first torecogniio the independence of America. Honor, then, to the star-bespangled banner, ami let Mr Kush'ft speech and Liimartlnu's answer lead the way of my d<ispat-rhes, which are rich in important and interesting details. On Wednesday. 20th April, Mr. Rush presented to the provisional government tho Utters of recognition of tho French republic lio spoke as follows :? (iontlemcn:?I have the honor of presenting to yon a lotter lY'im the President of tho I nited Suites, which rotifers on uir tlir quality of envoy extraordinary ami minister plenipotentiary of tliut republic to tin mpublio of France. In predentin# this letter, it is my duty to express to you, nt the M?mc time, the sincere solicitude which the President feels for the prosperity of France, nnil I am directed to inform yon of his ardent ncslre to cultivate, with zeal and cordiality, between He* two repnldies, tho most friendly relations. wbieji will servo to rune lit their most precious reciprocal interest*. I ami also charged to declare the President approves of mv conduct in recoiftiiiing the French republic, when its existence was announced to tlie world in February hv the Provisional (lovemiuent. It was then three days after its ldrtli; at prexeut tins the thinl month of its existence. During that interval, when all Kuroiio has lieen agitated. und France exposed to the gravest trials nnd difficulties, the l'rovlsional (lovernment has succeeded iu ensuring to it the supreme IdessiBKS of tranquillity at home, and of peace abroad. History will take note of that immense work. I am doubly happy to again offer on this occasion my felicitations, since I run now do no with the iwscnt of my government and of my country. I may now again lie permitted to express my ardent wishes tluit when the Republic shall have passed from vonr hands, which have hitherto guided its destinies, into thnne of the National Assembly, that great l?*iy may crown iu labors by the establishment of institutions, ensuring to France the greatest pros|ierlty and the purest glory. M. I.amartine replied na followi? " Citizen Minister, the provisional government has charged me to represent it at this moment, to receive from your bands the first net of offirinl recognition ol the Frvneh republic.

THE FRENCH ELECTIONS. My last letter will have prepared you lor bad tidings from Paris. 1 am happy to nay that, coutrary togeueral expectation, and even to the astonishment of all. the elections have passed over most quietly Your Paris correspondent will doubtless give you a detailed account All the attempt* of the ultra communists have proved abortive?the grand demonstration in favor of the provisional government, of which 1 sent you an account in uiy last, seems to have settled the question, and the result of the general elections, which may be regarded as the true expression of public opinion, is in favor of all the moderate party The funds at the bourse have risen four per cent. Bank shares have risen nearly 200 francs since the result of the elections lias become pretty certain, and confidence is greatly restored. Machinations against the provisional government are still rumored; it was even reported that a plot was made to blow up the Hotel de Vitle. and an investigation has been set on foot In consequence.? The French people have shown themselves worthy of the freedom they no nobly attained. and thi> would-be ilirtator.

A large amount of business was transacted in both, hut particularly in the Five i'er Cents, which closed at their highest quotation : the Threes, however, were, at ?ne moment quoted a franc higher than their elosiug price; Hank of France shares uuderwent great variations during the day; thoy opened at 1.373f? went up to l.MOf., then giving wav. fell t? 14N)f. rose agai n to 1,500f, Anally closing at l,4?f., or IW. lower tlian the day liefore.

THK WAR OF INDEPENDENCE IN ITALY. Tho rumored capture of Peschiora is not confirmed. The following account, derived from the most authent i r> annr^o will vivn vein u isinn. nf tint nnwuiit position of affairs in Lombardy. Tho Austrian general Nugent Una crossed tbo Ironzo at the bead of -30.000 regular troops, without auy oppoNition from General Zucchi, whom; heud-qnatters are at Paltna Nora. The exact spot where General Nugent crossed Is not given. hut it was probably between Gorz and Gradizka. hoth situated on the river, and on the high road from Vienna to I'alma Nova and Udine. Gorz was formerly a fortress, but the citadel now serves as a prison. Gradizka ia surrounded by high walls, and was formerly a fortress of the first class. The high road from Trieste to Venice passes about two miles below the town. Palma Nova, which is only two post stations from Gradizka. is already in tho Venetian territory. and was placed in a state of complete defence when occupied by the French troops. Tho fortification* form an oval, and conaist of nine bastions of massive stone, surrounded by twelve double trenchcs of great depth. A battle between the troops of (ionoral Nugent, and Zucchi'a crusaders maybe expected, to prevent tho fonnor forming a junction with ltadetzki under the walls of Verona.'' I am sorry to a.iy that disaensions have arisen between the King of Sardinia and the Milanese. "Great surprise^has been felt of late at the rather sudden inactivity shown by tho King of Sardinia in prosecuting the war against Austria?an inactivity which forms a striking contrast with his conduct at the commencement of tho campaign. Kor some time past the fact has been the subject of conversation at Milan, and various have been the comments made upon it. According to some. Charles Albert had become alarmed at tlli' formidable position of lladetzky; according to others. he was paralyzed by the threats of Kngland. while a third party maintained, that ou finding that the provisional government at Milan was disposed to form a republic, instead of placing, as he fondly expected, the crown of Lombardy upon hia own head, he had determined to withdraw from a conteat in which he had already loat character, und from which, even if successful, he could not hopo'to derive personal advantage.? The fact appears to be that the last guess is the uearest to the truth A difference has arisen between Charles Albert and the provisional government at Milan, of so serious a nature that It ia likely to have a very sinister effect 011 tho eventa of the war, iu as far as tho Interest* of Lomubardy are concerned. * Letters received from the head-quarters of General Gnzsaldo. and which are stated by the Conttm/toraneo to be official, state that the quarrel haa. within the lust few daya. assumed a charurter equally grave and unexpected. According to those letters. < buries Albert has writen to the provisional government at Milan, intimating, first, that he considers the^Minclo as the extreme boundary betweon Lombardy and Vonine ; in th? aooond ylace. that the Venetians having constituted themaelvos into a republic, it Is not hia intention toaet foot within their territory; and thirdly tlmt the Austrian*, having abandoned the Lombard territory, with the exception \ of Mantua and I'eschiora [Verona and l.egiiano.] lie considers that he has accomplished hi* misaion. lie- j siilea thla. he calla upon the proviaional government to | lose no time in making up their minds, and guarding the frontier* with Ihcir own troops, as he ia quite do- i termlned to retire as aoon a* the Lombard troop* ahall have taken possession of the positions which he at present occupies.

An engagement ha* likewise taken place between the Italian corps of General Zucchi aud the A us* triauN at Visco, a village situated on the frontiers of lllyria.

" Tliu Parliament declares?I. Ferdinand Hourbon ami hi* dynasty arc for over fallen from the throne of Sicily. 2.

The town was to be illuminated the throe nights following; on the 13th all tho bronze statuim of the house of llourbon were thrown down, and they will be cast into cannon. GERMANY. Like the chartist demonstration in London, the attempted outbreak at Vienna proved a failure. Austria is comparatively quiet, and too muoh occupied with her war in Italy to bo unruly at home. Some disturbances of a serious nature took place at Berlin; an attempt wan made to proclaim a republic, but the citizens turned out, and matters remain in statu quo.? Prussia is at opou war with Denmark. Oermuny. however, is in a very unsettled state; and as the geuoral elections for the Uormati Parliament come on in May?and the election of the head of the Diet will have to be made?no one oan foretell what will happen. Some serious disturbances have taken place in Hanover. but tranquillity is restored. Tho insurrection broke out at Hildosheim. A letter from Hanover of tho 19th, says:? TImj insurreetion at llildesheim, which threatened to produce most serious consequences to this and ncighlioriug State*, lias lieen hiippressed without bloodshed, through the prompt and energetic measures employed by the ministers, with the King's concurrence. It apiwars that the people and populace of that city, one of the largest ill the country, upon hearing of the arrest of Advocate Weiuhagen, llevr to arms, ami, rushing to the townhonse. broke in and soiled the Landrath (President of Kegency) with other of the officials, whom they carried off a* hostages, and nieuaoed with death, unless Weinhagsn was lils-rated. The tocsin was sounded, barricades were thrown up. houses pillaged, a provisional rogen. v formed, and preparations for defence undertaken. Cannon were procured from tho government store, and the people belrid joined by tlie burgher guard, bade defianeu to the government and its agents. In the meantime the ministers were not idle.? It was resohod, come what might, to enforce sulimission. and to restore the {tower of the legal authorities. Consequently a brigade of two thousand infantry was sjieedily despatched by rail >o tlie spot. These were followed during the night lijfc, four . squadrons, and eight Held pieces. These troops ruoeived orders not tu enter trio town ot lliiuustiiem, nut t<i taKc up a position outside, so as to prevent ingress or egress. The officer* commanding having executed these orders, lit ti v t* a. m. yesterday summoned the insurgents to surrender at discretion viitbin six Imnra, threatening to l?onibard the town in the event of refusal. Fortunately this rigorous measure was rendered unnecessary by the amieirancc of a tin* of truce, offering unconditional surrender, and tlie liberation of the imprisoned authorities; and in leu than an hour therefrom the troops entered the town peaceably; the population, including the burglier guard, were disarmed, unit the authorities were liberated and reinstated in office. A few ringleaders and pillagerj were arrested, aud measures adopted to prevent a recurrence hy cstablisliinn strong patrols and guard*. A* t punishment, the troops arc nuarterej on the inhabitant*, and will continue so for the present. It is difficult to riuscrilie the anxiety exeited by this outbreak, or iJir satisfaction produced by its prompt and bloodless termination. The mode iu which this alfair was conducted shows that, when governments and troops are resolute, active, and do their duly, Insurrections can l? easily <|UcHed. It also shows that the executive may depend upon its army, a rare occurrence in theso days. when soldiers are taught that it is nioru praiseworthy to abandon their colors, to deliver up their arms, and to break their oaths and allegiance. than to hold (Inn to their rauks, their duty, aud to all that they formerly held sacred." Hut the'most serious event that lias taken place was the attempt of tho revolutionary hands, joined by the (ierman Legion front Paris, to proclaim a republic In tho grand Duchy of Badon. The leader of this movement is flecker, an ex-member of thu Chamber of the States of Baden. The attempt has proved abortive. PRUSSIA AND DENMARK?FIERCE BATTLE AND LOSS OK I.IKE. Notwithstanding tho protest of Lord Palmerston. the king of Prussia, though he hesitated for a moment, was uuublo to withstand tho torrent of public opinion, and he sent a reply referring tho British minister to the Germanic Diet. His troops immediately crossed the Kider. and are at the present moment iu possession of Sebieswig, having driven out the Danes, who made a tierce aud obstinate resistence. 1 have received advices to the 25th ; another engagement followed : the Dunes evacuated Sebieswig. after i groat loss 011 both sides, and retired in good order. Tho question now arisos?Will Lorl Palmerston follow up his protest and doclare war to Germany Will 1 Itussia help the Danes ? If Carlo Alberto la beaten by , Itadetzki. will Franco enter Italy .' Like Damocles. Kuropc is on a couch with a sword bung by a single hair'ohova her head. 1 POLAND. The Courritr dt Cracovir. announces that at the in- | stisntion of the nrince-Govomor. n denotation of four of the principle magnates of Polnnd. headed by Krasin- ' ski. will present itself to the Kmperorat St. Petorsbnrg. 1 with tlio object of entreating for the re-cstablishment. nf the kingdom of Poland, a* it was previous to the revolution, and for taking all necessary steps that those parts not actually now forming a part, of Poland way lie also united together under tho Russian Crown. Of those parts, < iallicia and the Grand Duchy of I'oscn nre to lie understood as two. If tho Prince-Oovernor lie really tho person who has advised this step, the information 1s of great importance. From, Konigsherg. under date of the 17th April, we hear that three regiments of Kusviau Guards auine days since left St. Petersburg ; they will taku up their quartern for the present at liiK? Th? rumor according to which Russia would consent to the ruconatitution of the^kingiloni of Poland, acquires more probability.

These questions embrace not only hi* perKoual history, tho historv of his past opinions, but hi* present opinions upon the subjects affecting the political. financial, and social condition of France, and what would be his course in case the National Asaembly should be attacked or its decrees resisted. In addition. each member of the club has a right to question hiiu. aud the collision of intellect and of wit. aud ingenuity. is sometimes exceedingly interesting. All these questions are put and answered in the presence of thousands of both sexes, and he who has not a good ileal of intellectual muscle, had better be quiet upon these occasions, for there Is frequently as much danger to the author of the quest ion as to tho answerer. Tho canvass for the candidates has been conducted in the most orderly and respectable manner. In no instance has any newspaper referred to the private character of any man. and very seldom referred to the opinions of any one unfavorably by name. Tho great canvass haa been carried on face to faee with the candidate, always giving him a full opportunity to be heard with the most respectful attention. One of the nephewa of Napoleon will represent Corsica. The son of Marshal Nev will be in the assembly; to the memory of whose father, the provisional government has ordered a suitable monument to be erected. Thank* be to them for that ju?t tribute of the respect of France, and censure of his murderers. OBSERVER. Paul, April21, 1848. The Grand Htoiew. The 20th was tho day of day* at Pari*.
