Mr. Hume's moiionfor extended reform will again be Ui; rusn-d on 611. July \\ hlle tbe debate upon this question is occupying th<-attention of Parliament the out-ofdoor adherents of tbe movement are exceedingly quiet, waiting I have no doubt, to see what the ex- cmivo will do for them, before they commence a powerful agitation. You must n< t understand from this, that their meetings have been entirely su pendi d. but that they are less numerous, and at the same time exhibit more patience and mod'ration. Tbe only semblance of a ?ubllc gathering f 'his body lately, has been the pube dinner given by the reformers of Marylebono, to ther members. As f t *s political agitation is concerned, everything is remarkably quiet, not a chartist even "Ventures to disturb the peace of the town. Ireland is also tianquil, although efforts are being strenuously made by the clubs to enrol amongst their members, the rural population. With this exception, there is no disquietude; indeed, sotlioTougly have the government ?ct the upper hand in that oountry, that the rumor of be Queen and I'rince Albert going in the autumn to Dublin, gains general credence, conciliation Hall is in a lamentable et te; no one cares now to take the leadership, since Darnel O'Connel and Tom Steele liuve gone John O'Connell seems irresolute, whether to retire into private life, or give his sanction to the xepeal party. Probably he will do neither, by adopting Ihe via media The exceedingly heavy charges upon \mericanand <Jtber newspapers, coming into this country, are a formidable barrier to their circulation, and are exciting ton e great degree of attention. Mr Simmonds is about <0 sgiiate ihe matter in his Colonial Magazine, and tl e suhjei t will be likewise taken up by several gentlemo of influence connected with the press, if rnagaSines, for instauce were allowed to be sent abroad at a rate of sixpence would be a lystem that would lbs g'adly welcomed, a nd also afford a large revenue to the Pi st Office. Books are circulated in P.ngUnd through the post, at the rate I have named; the restriction* being that t hey must be open at the ends, and onntain no writing except such as is allowed by tbe official regulations. Supposing this to bo carried Into practice for books etc . going to places abroad, what u wonderful convenience it would be ! Mr. It wland Hill has not by any means been idle since he has llHii me management of the Post Office, and there are good prounds for hoping that, be will la induced to turn bis attention to the matter I hare ra-utloned.

The Steamships Niagara and United Slates?The American Steamship Line?Reflections on it, tfc. Soon after posting my letter of the 23d inst., to go by the Caledonia, I was informed of the arrival of the steamer United States, off Cowes, en route from New York to Havre. Capt. Huckstaff may be complimented upon making the quickest voyage ever known, from New York to Cowes ; Roads, and one of the quickest voyages from America to England. The United States beat the Niagara on the outward run Liverpool?but the palm ol success must, I think, be given to the Niagara, homcwatds?the latter vessel reached Li verpool, from Boston, in lOfc days. By the the subjoined table of distances, it will be seen that the passage from Boston to Liverpool is shorter by 273 mileB than the passage between New York and Southampton :? BosTOM TO LlTEBrOOL.

Total 3156 Here, then, will be seen that the United States made the run of 3156 miles in 12 days 6 hours, and theNiagara the run of 2SS3 miles in lOdays lOhours. Allowing the difference of 273 miles to occupy 30 hours in its peiformance, it will be noted that the Niagara has only beaten the United States by eight hours; und therefore the two vessels may be considered as rivals, and to have been equally successful in their trips. I was mentioning to you in my last, that it was a great pity that two lines of competing American steamers should occupy one station; and that a coalition of interests would be both desirable and necessary for the good of both companies, and for the more effectual competition with the English steamers. The truth of this remark mast be apparent. In Ibe present stage, it will never answer the purpose of the owners of tho United Status to contiuue her on the New York and Havre station; for in the precarious and distracted state of France, mercantile business must dwindle down to comparatively trifling transactions, and any great change for the better cannot be anticipated to take place for a length of time The projectors of American ocean steam navigation, should we.I woik the New York and Southampton line, p< rlotm Ibe voyages expeditiously, avoid delays, postponements, mishaps to machinery, da., lowei the rate % oi In lght on goods, and then an immense truffle would result, and the united undertaking pay handsome protits.

In the foolish notion of sending the ships to firemen. adiatance of 41)0 miles from Southampton In every point of view this is j.rijud cial to tlie enterprise, and If the notion i< persisted in, I can only foresee that the undertaking will tie a failure. It is understood. of courso, that the government nl the United St at eg, when incorporating it rtmni jacket comjiany for conveying mails to Europe were deeirou* to establish a direct line between N w \ ork and (lerinatiy. anil Bremen ?a- tlxed upon ng the port at whirh the vessels should -top.

I will illustrate thla-flr.t assuring you that I hav? gin n tin- f nhjeet a good deal of attention since my a ay bete and that I have made enquiries in a variety id Quarters likely to tie well informed.

The present prospects of the company are much commented on at Southampton.amongst parties connected with steam navigation. The line is wit lied every success; but the Impression is, as 1 hare stated, that too muoh is aimed at; and that a rsgular monthly line fiom New \ ork to Bremen, via Southampton, cannot be calculated upon by means of two ships; nor could a semi-monthly line be worked with regularity with four ships. An extra vessel must be kept in commission to provide for the elfeot of irregularities arising from the overworking of the running vessels?and that extra ship would be a far greater expense then two suiall ones fit for navigating the North Si a. It lias been mentioned to me that the Bremun p< ople are very anxious to have small vessels running betwci n Broroen und Southampton, as from the contiguity of the lalti r place to Havre (the Liverpool of Krauce.) it is thought a largo passenger and goods traffic, irrespective of the traffic connected with the uiad steamers from New Tork, might be established. I make this exposition of the general opinion here on the prospects ot the United States mail steamers, as 1 believe them to be bused (in sound und precliuul bu-iness views. Mr J.

Some interest i? excited as to the race that is now being lun across the Atlantic, between the Hermann and the Aoadia?the former to leave New Vork on 20th this month, the latter on the 21-it. The bete aro made in favor of the Hermann, in consequence of her excellent passage outwards in thirteen and a half days to Sandy Hook We have had an arrival flrom Portugal by the Madrid steamer tide week. The news l'reni Lisbon savors of intended insurrections, with plotting and conspiracies. The government were making numorous arrests amongst the liberal party and personages formerly connected with the Oporto junta and the editors of the papers representing tho views of the I'atulea faction. It was generally supposed that these unconstitutional and arbitrary at rests would hasten, rather than retard, u revolutionary movement. 1 have had a communication from a gentleman, resident in Lisbon, who is well acquaintedwith ths disaffected to the gover ament. and 1 am assured that their plaus arc so well laid and so extensively preparing, that wheu the moment arrives for action,success must be certain,and the downfall of Donna Maria, and her corrnpt government will follow, as a matter of course. Republican principles are gMiuing ground in Portugal, and it is not improbable that the success of the reactionary party would l> followed by the proclamation of a republic, which form of government would be enthusiast.cally adopted by the Portuguese people It is eertain that the majority of the troops could not be depended upou by the government ; they are badly aud irregularly paid, and would not hesitate to pronounce in favor of any rational form of government h< Iding out a-prospeot of an improvement in the financial administration of the country. Another consideration that renders the downfall of Donua Maria more likely is, that the British government has determined nn Inmrer t.n he mnde the cut'a n?w In nun. porting an ungrateful und dishonest Queen and a knot of ministers. A British fleet is no longer kept In the Tagus. and in the event of a revolution, the Portuguese will bo permitted to light it out amongsttbemselves. and to choose that form of government that may be most acceptable to a majority of the nation. On the 19th June, at Lisbon, the exchange on London nt 30 days sight, was 52%d pur 1,000 mil rule, and at 00 days date. 52% to 53. Lisbon Bank notes were at a discount of 54 per cent. Trade and commerce wero in a state of great depression and uncertainty, arising from the depreciated state of the currency, and the uncertainty and hazardous nature of public affairs. By the arrival of the Pacha steamer last night, from Oibialtar, we have dates as late as the 22d June. There were very few American ships there.

A company is about being formed, to run steam emigrant ships; and from the parties connected with it. and the interest it is privately exciting. I think it stands good chances of support. I shall be able to give you a few more particulars shortly. Stutqajud, June 23, 1848. Stale of Germany? lYouble ahead?A Republic Demanded, 4*c. The political and social ail'airs of the German states are aany growing more gloomy ana complicated. It is evident that the revolution has not yet reached its crisis ; that it has not wrought the change it was intend td to bring about; and that u vast deal remains yet to be done, ere the work of reformation in Germany will be completed. The election of the Parliament at Frankfort has, for a time, stilled the storm; the German people hoped that from it they would receive the fruits of the revolution, without suffering its evils; and the eyes of the whole nation were anxiously cast toward the church of St. Paul, expecting from it deliverance and salvation?but they were mistaken. The National Assembly does evidently not comprehend its task ; or, if it does, it is playing a despicable, hypocritical turce; pretending to secure to the |>eople their sovereignty, they are. drawing the cords of tyranny fatter than ever around their necks; and, if unresisted, they will eventually suffocate the whole nati in. The"Parliament was created by the people, in older to establish a universal government?a general system, throughout all the confederated States. They were convinced of the importance of union, and, with unparalleled unanimity and siamtaneousness, they abstained from further violent measures, and sought relief from that body, which they clothed with their newly declared sovereignty. Its task should therefore be, to carry out the will of the nation, of the people, as declared by the revolution ; it should act as the sovereign people themselves w ould act, without regard to any existing government, to any organized power, suve the people. Put it has faih <1 to do so. it is either too imbecile to comprehend the full extent ot Its power, or too weak to exert it in carrying out the will of the people in opposition to tlje potentate* eud princes, trembling, perhaps, before the glittering bayonets of the military; or it has shamefully, b.isely, betrayed the trust confided to it The report of the committee on the organisation of a provisional central power, has convinced every true patriot that from I hat source no relief to the country can be hoped for.

The First Step In the Nrw Heform Movement In (in at Britain ( Krom the Manchester Examiner, June 24 ] The first step in the new reform movement has been taken. We say this, witlioi* any reference to what maybe the result of the motion made by ; Mr. Hume, on Tuesday night. Our readers will ! see that after one night s discussion, during which 1 five speec hes were made, the debate was adjourn1 etl till lust night; and then, as obstacles mterven1 ed, it was again adjourned till next Friday, the government having consented to give up that night i to a full difcussion of (he subject. So far, the a 1 1* * i '-i-.- j i ] _a I . ..a j quesuuu nil a iHiny wrmnuo alienor, nnu hiuuu out | to sea ; uiid not the shadow of u doubt crosses our minds but that it will ultimately reach its destined haven. Abstaining from mere criticism on the motion, or on the speeches by which it was supported or , opposed, (this is done in the letter of our private i correspondent,) we may' here reiterate the general | principles on which we advocate a new reform bill. These we^base on the existence of indispu- I tuble facts; and having stated them, leave the mat- j ter to the quiet consideration of all thoughtful, earnest, practical minds. It is an indisputable fact, that a vast portion of our population are thoroughly dissatisfied with the working of our legislature, and with the management of the executive, as controlled by Uailtament. This is no ephemeral feeling?no transitory belief. A great body of our people are permanently embued with the opinion, that government, as i carried on in this country, is far too expensive and i extravagant; that taxation is at once heavy and ! unequal ; that the constitution, in Church and State, is charged to the full with absurdities, anom- | alies, and grievances; that in the practical work- j ing of that constitution, there is too frequently seen one law for the churchman and another for the 1 dissenter, one law for the rich and another for the j 1 poor; that, in short, with all the advantages which I can be pointed out, as compared with other coun- j | ,ries, England is governed by the privileged clas- I | ses, us ugainst the unprivileged ; and that the re- j suit is a state of things with which thousands of j those for whose use government ought to exist, ] are thoroughly dissatisfied, and which ihey are de- J termined to take tfie earliest opportunity of atneud- | ing. . | This is a fact?an indisputable fact. It is mani- i fested, not merely by the chartist meetings which I have agitated the country, but in the quieter but far more determined spirit which reigns in thousands ; who do net ally themselves with chartism. One | instance of this came within our own personal obo...i... a i.:?? .r mri III 1..11 uui inline |.aoi n criv. /I ? <ji i\ni? in in, m remarkable intelligence, who is notu chartist, who doesnot nlly himself with chartism, wiio repudiates altogether the foolish language of so-called leaders, and would not resort to physical force, if it could he avoided, declared, soberly, seriously, without heat or passion, that he had a gun and a pike ready for the connngoutbreak, and that there were hundreds of his fellows similarly prepared. Remonstrance with him was useless. lie listened to all that you had to say, admitted Cthe force of your arguments, but in reply to all dissuasiveness from physictd force, affirmed, with grim and resolute countenance, that the day was now gone by for the r - ; claination of Hngland. otherwise than !>y demon- 1 stratton of pike and bayonet! Now, you may laugh at this?sneer at it?pooh, I pooh it?and affirm it to he dreadfully wrong, and excessively mischievous. All this was said and done, without producidg the slightest effect. Still PHtne hack the argnmeut that the middle clashes would not assist the working classes to obtain their just rights and privileges; and that nothing remained for the toiling, unenfranchised class, but such a display of force as would procure tliem political emancipation, and, perhaps, something more. We have no apprehension that the working classes ; would lie able to overthrow the government by J force ol stills ; and we have repeatedly spoken in j strong terms respecting the folly and the wick<;dI ness of these appeals to physical force, with j which tin' country has been recently affronted.? ! But tho exibtence of wurh a spirit amongst large bodies of our fellow-subjects and fel- | low-countrymen is a grievous and a most serious matter. Hundreds?we may safely say 1 thousands?who disapprove entirely of chartist : rhodomontade and extravagance, and who do not ' attend charti-t meetings, do yet so sympathise with the objects sought, as to have no li'-sitation in , affirming, that these objects must be attained any- | how?by arms, it necessary. Deplore the fact, and censure the language, as much as you please, but stdl the fact remains; and however resolute we may all be in supporting public order, and in repressing insane insinrection, it can give no pleasure to quiet, earnest men, to think that the British constitution requires encampments, great guns, grape shot, bayonets, und constables staves, to preserve it from those who ought to be the content* d children of the commonwealth. | llnve these men any right to be discontented! : They have: it is an indisputable fact, and cannot be gainsaid. The whole government of this country is carried on at a rate, and on a scale of expense, which practically excludes the idea of woiking-men. From the crown down to the i humblest government clerk, the notion involved is, that the art of government is an aristocratic business, belonging exclusively to noblemen and gentlemen born. And thougfi the church has I somewhat awakened to a sense ol its duties snd responsibilities, the same idea is embodied there. From the Archbishop ol Canterbury down to the > i IE R A 3. poorest paid curate, the notion is, that all clergy. t| men are and must be essentially gentlemen. When Moms whs informed that young men were |iroph? syiug in the camp, he exclaimed, "Would that all the Land's i eople were prophets!" In a similar spirit, we might wish that all our working classes w re gentlemen?not above their station, for that is only the characteristic of those who are expressiV' Iv termed snobs?but gentlemen in feeling, in ceroid ratenes , in deference to one onotlmr, and in cool, quiet courage, llut that is not the matter ive are now discussing. We are simply pointing out how, owing to the aristocratical constitution of this country, that the government of this country is framed on the principle, that both church and State belong exclusively to gentlemen ?a tact not at all affected hy the instances of individuals who have climbed their way from the humblest to the highest ranks, and leaped the fences of parliament, and even of the peerage. This practical ignoring ol the working cl isses in the business of government, is manifest in Parliament. Civil list, official salaries, diplomitic services, army and navy, are all framed with due and adequate regard to noblemen and gentlemen. Practically, a working man is deemed by nature utterly unfit, even if self-taught, to take a desk in JJown'ng street, to go as an ambassador to Vienna or Madrid, *r to meddle with th- not very recondite business of government. The very idea is considered a most outrageously laughable one. Even middle-class men are reluctantly admitted, , and only when their services are deemed useful. {, The whole notion of government practically shuts ? out the idea of a working inan ; and, consequently, the general scale of government expenditure p puts out of view the facj, that millions who con- a tribute the taxes have only a scanty daily or week- j ly pittance , l Wlule the working classes are thus practically ignored, the middle classes are not much hotter ? otf. They have, of course, more influence in the ,. election of members of Parliament; and they can nn ke thetus* Ives belter heard within its walls, d lint their position is, in many respects, cruel and J awkward. On one side of them are the continual- 11 ly increasing working classes, augmenting in e numbers, and becoming, year by year, more tho- ! roughly discontented with the frame-work of government, and their own practical exclusion from politic al power. On the other side are the aristocratic classes, who regard the business of government as theirs bv inheritance and right, and who look to ihe middle classes to sustain them in its i possession. The middle classes nre between the upper and nether mill-stones ; and though, for the sake of peace and order, they would at once join with the upper classes, if any attempt were made J to distuib public tranquillity, they have no security that they will not be required to become the st indi ing militia of the upper classes, permanently en- j u" rolled, and perpetually encamped, in the very midst ni of what is deemed social security: "" Here, then, is our actual position. The jgreat | . bulk of the working classes thoroughly dissatisfied dl with their practical exclusion from political power, a( and determined to acquire it, by some means or u other. The irreat bulk of the middle classes, l>< called on to officiate as the special conservators of peace, against the working classes, alihough satis- 0< fied that a large portion of the complaints of these classes ate founded in justice, nnd ought to be J* listened to in reason. The great bulk of the aris- ! al | tocracy looking to political power and government f0 as their exclusive possession, willing to concede u small reforms, if small reforms would uuiet the tt people, but uiiHhle or unwilling to do anything that i ct would adapt taxation and expenditure to the neces- j 01 sit es of a heavily burdened commercial country. ' 01 Can we go on with such a state of things! jjj It is impossible: A change musteome; and he ? is the true conservatist who manfully anticpates it. , ai : The new relorni movement seeks to disarm char- i 0' tisni, by a comprehensive enlargement of the frail- b ehise: to release the middle classes from perpetual i n uneasiness, by the removal of political discontent; ! ? and to teach the upper classes that there is a wiy i of governing this country, by which public credit will be kept, and the dignity of the crown be un- ^ impaired, without the necessity of a profuse ex- t jt penditure. These are great objects; there are more tl to be more enumerated; hut they may be summed fc up in the words?efficient, good, cheap govern- j y mcnt, over which the great bulk of the community shall have direct control. To this object tends the motion of Mr. lluine; it is the first step in the new " reform movement; and we have excellent reason a| for believing lhat it will be followed by many a more, if many more are necessary, to conduct to t< the great realisation we have In view. a< Aspect of AfTnlrson the Continent of Europe. ' [From the London Newn, June J 1 0{ As France now gives promise of a settled and j, a strong government, in which the military elemerit must have considerable weight, it becomes 1 in important to consider the state of the countries sb boideruig upon it, and of those struggles, calcula- h' ted to tempt or provoke French aggression, or to J' extend the circle of war and the number of belliBO geirnts. # . Hitherto the war in Lombardy has been favora- h( 1 ble to the Italian cause. Not only was a large Aus- H j trian army ejected from the Milanese, but that j is army, after receiving considerable reinforcements, ai was defeated in the open field near Goito by the a j army of Piedmont, under the command ol itssove- b reign. Charles Albert, however, did riot make the most of that advantage. He has rather reposed on his laurels,| than hastened to gather fresh ones. pi Verona, momentarily undefended by the Austrian ,, aimy, which had marched to the reduction of Vi- ni cenza, almost invited attack; but Charles Albert m shrank from it, nnd has thereby excited the discon- 1 t' tent of his soldiers nnd the murmurs of all Italy. 111 It is the character of Charles Albert to uct well and nobly upon impulse,and then to become feeble and p( pusillanimous upon reflection. Such a relapse at this critical moment would be fatal to him, to his nascent power and empire, and by encouraging the p? democratic parties opposed to him, may thng is North Italy back into anarchy first, and foreign de- or pendente after, at th" very moment when it seem- M ed in a fair way to attain the very goal of all politt- J? cal efforts^-freedom, unity and independence. | The desire of the Austrian government is deni- ' .1.II,, l?r I?r M.nn uil,,l it ,, ti ji , I. r j fiiir teims. such terms as would leave Marshal Ra- tli detski Hnd his army free to protect the unity of the M German and tfclavonian dominions of Austria.

Hut they are not prepared to cede the Venetian territory, of which ihey are j0 at this moment in full possession, including the to formidable fortresses which guard it.

Cut, as it is iflcamfcent on Charles Albert ' u( to take the offensive, a small disparity of numbers wi would be fully com|>cnsated to the Austrians by fi' tlu ir str< ng positions. _ rl< In such a state of things, it is feared, that f" Chatles Albett might listen to the oiler of Austria J? to cede the Milanese, on condition that the Vene- " tian territories be left tliem. It is reported that {'^ England was applied to, for its mediation on sueh trims, and thut our cabinet had consented. Wc la* believe this not to be the fact, and understand that )? u direct negotiation is going on between the belli- (l'" gercnts, and that an Austrian agent has been sent to Milan and Hadetski ordered to conclude the armistice to allow time for the consideration I the pro- Bni jiosnls. We are very glad to learn that the Hrttisti wj, government lias not undertaaen a mediation, so rU| unlikely to lead to any satisfactory or permanent sot result. The Italians, it is plain, c,in never consent th? to the amputation of one of the most glorious and 1"' historic portions of Italy. I he \ enettan popul-i- "J" Hon itself could never be reconciled to Austrian sway, even though organized as a separate province, and gifted with a constitution. And a treaty even when concluded would be nothing more than th? an armed truce, which requires the same amount tr? of men, of precaution, and exiwnditure, aa th? at present on both hanks of the Aaige. Venice th? would thus cost Austria more than it is worth. ",a At the same time, unless Charles Albert gains J1"" one more striking military advantage, it is not to be seen how Austria can yield the Venetian terri- tJe( tory. The Germans have a strong national feel- |or ing on the subject, and the Frankfort Diet w is mad tx-r enough to pro|M>sc an incursion of Haviriaus into nie Italy as revenge for the blockade of Trieste. We th? need not say that n march of Bavarian troops I"11 through the Tyrol would assuredly tiring the ,or French over the Rhine. Better far that the unarrel be left between Austria and Lombardy tnHii swell it to a ritalry, which ought is>t to exist between Italians and Germans. Wlint is most to he hoped is, that the Provisional i Government of Milan tnay coins to some terms ?? ? with ih?
