WONKY MARK KIT. t? v..!.* TA a n auiiuaj'f u wijr UUMU mt xu. We here bad two arrivals from Europe during the past week, but tbe markets have been very little affected l>y tbe news, one way or tbe other. The c mmercial intelligence has been as favorable as oould bave been expected, under existing circumstances, but it is not by any means satisfactory. Tbe future looks gloomy, and we cannot divest our minds of those fears wbich the events of the past six or twelve months have created. We occasionally see a ray of hope, but it soon disappears, and tbe political and commercial horison becomes again overcast, and the mutterings of the distant tempest are distinctly heard. The whole of Europe is in a terrible condition; and our only hope is, that Great Britain may escape the blast which has swept from one end of the continent to the other with such devastating effect. If England escapes, we shall eontinue to find extensive markets for our products, and our prosperity will be partially preserved. Our markets ou the continent have almost become extinot, so that tbe worst in that particular has already been realised; but, every week or month, consumption in that section of the world, is restricted or limited?so much the mors injurious must be the revolution causing such a state of things. With the exception of Great Britain, our Enropean export trade has been literally annihilated; but unfortunately, our import trade with these countries has not met with a similar fate, but on the contrary, has rather Increased than otherwise. Importers 1 A ?V;? 1, AAA ?.k..A .j..At.AA ... wj.O uuwuiij ' "? U.am-Oftc of the financial embarrassments growing out of the revolution, whieh the manufacturers of France and Europe generally have labored under, and have purchased of them for rash, goods at one-half their cost, and have filled our markets. A portion of the specie which has been shipped from this port within the past four months, went abroad for this purpose, and while our exports had become reduced to the lowest limit, and exchange drawn upon previous shipments of produce, was coming back protested, millions of dollars in geld and silver, were going forward to purchase goods, which could not be obtained on the usual redit. In this way, our whole foreign trade has become deranged, and we have thus far borne the brunt of the commercial revulsions and political revolutions in Europe. The losses we have directly sustained by the suspen sion of foreign houses largely indebted to us, have been trifling, compared with those realized by the depreciation in the market value of our products. So far as breadstuffs are cencerned, we can make no comparisons. as both the demand and prices last year were entirely artificial, or wo might say unnatural and out of the usual course of trade. The demand in Europo, generally, for breadstuffs, in 1840 and 1847, was the most unfortunate event that could have happened to this country, and we are prepared to show that it was more unfortunate to us than it was to England, although she was the consumer, and paid for it in gold, and we were the producers and received the hard dollars for the bulk of our shipments. We imported in 1847 about twenty-four millions of dollars, in bullion, about twenty millions of which came from England ; this drain of gold being in payment for breadstuff*, came directly from the vaults of the Bank of England, and the amouut of bullion in the bank was reduced ' to about six millions sterling. The effect of this reduction in the gold and silver of the bank, was a corresponding reduction in its circulation, and a contraction in its credits, perhaps to ten times the amount, and the result was a tremendous stringency in the money market, and a rapid depreciation in prices for every species of property, exoept orrsuMuns. uur great. siapie, couon, leu toe euecis 01 thia state of things very materially, and priees became ao much reduced, and the consumption so limited, that the moat ruinous losses became inevitable ; but were put clT with the hope|of theirjbeing ultimately leita disastrous. The postponement only increased the evil, and recent events have shown the folly of anticipating an improvement in the midst of such a complete prostration of commercial confidence, and suoh au unaccountable disappearance of active eapital. Large quantities of cotton have been put upon the market, and sales made at prices full fifty per cent below those current at the commencement of the season. The whole ef this, and.thousanda upon thousands of bales yet out of the market, have been held for better prices ; but better prices being, at all events, for the present, out of the question, it has been deemed best to submit to the sacrifice, particularly as the prospect Is in favor Of an immense crop this year. Had there not been a scarcity of breadstufis in Great Britain, or in Eurepe generally, during the years 1846 and 1847, it is highly probable there would have been no political revolution in 1848 ; and it is altogether probable that commercial prosperity would have exist f d in all sections of the world?that prices for eur cot ion would have been sustained, and that we should not hnve received so much gold and silver from Europe; hut that we should have beeu in a much better condition than we are at present. Nearly ono half of the specie imported last year, has gone back this, and more than the balanoe of profits realised on our shipments of flour and grain, has been absorbed in pay mtnm ior v*c?pbitb unpon*, loaTing mc enormous losses on cotton the balance against u?, for the advantages of an extonsive foreign demand for our kreadstuffs. Political demagogue* and party organs may talk till doomsday akout the benefit* derived from an extensive foreign demand for our breadstuff*, particularly whou that demand come* from a country which is a large consumer of cotton, and that consumption is regulated by the rnling prices for food. A steady, moderate demand for our breadstuff*,!* much more desirable than those occasional excessive wants which for the time absorb a large portion of the Moating capital of the country, consuming such large quantities of foreign breadstuff*, and derange tho whole course of trade We may apparently gain largely by tho increase In tho quantity of our agricultural products, consumed abroad, but we are in fact, large loser* by the operation. It lsfor our interest that our customers should be as rich and as prosperous as possible for us to make them, that they may be largo consumers of our most Important articles of export, a ud if the most important article 1* cotton, whatever interferes with it cannot but be highly detrimental to i or mist important Interest. In our remarks a few days since relative to the Bank rf Churluston, S and the communications which haTe Hppesred *o frequently in tho newspapers of that city, we ,'h< uldbnvc stated that these oouimnnieat'ons referred entirely to the Uank of the Stat* of South ( aroiina, instead of tho Hank of < harleston, S. l'.?

The emissaries of the President vere known to be busily employed in influencing hose who were open to that jieculiar H|?eetes oi onviction resulting from Executive logic, and iittliy inriiiun a wnu uuvc given auiiiiiiiniiauuu ueuBures almost undeviating support, Btili were letermined to make unmistakeabiy manifest their letestation ot such interference with the legisla1011 of Congress by the Executive. I learn that very sort of influence was brought to bear on liose who are regarded as weak and vasodilating; ,nd that the suddenness of the motion to lay the iill upon the table, alone defeated the Btrong hopes ntertained of being able to melt away by prolines and threats,and persuasion ot various kinds, he opposition to its passage. II the satety of the Jnion depended on the success of the measure, it rould not be desirable to secure it by such expedites. The surest means of inspiring the people vith distrust in the government, is to tamper with lie representatives. What is there in monarchy nore corrupt or dangerous ? That a majority of f the Senate are under the control of the Presient, recent events have fully demonstrated. If, ben, the House had opened its ears to his blan.ishments, and both houses were thus to lend heniselves to be mere executors of his will, in leaven'sname what would have become of the republic 1 Mr. Polk says General Jackson used the same neans to control the legislation of both houses. Phis is questionable; but if he did, what then 1 ieneral Jackson swore terribly. Must Mr. Polk mitatc his example 1 Unfortunately, Mr. Polk is >ne ot such an order of human beings that if General Jackson had, among a thousand accomilishments, an unfortunate hahit of helping hirnielf to peas with his knife, Mr. Polk would disegard all the accomplishments and adopt that one lelect. The House will proceed to uass the Oregon bill ind send it to the Senate, ana the latter body will nterpolate some amerdment distasteful to the louse. A committee of conference will be apminted, and thus a compromise may at length be igreed upon. This will take time, but it seems to ?e the detennination of the Senate to remain in lession until the question is settled in some way. governments should be extended over all the teritones, but 6oine means of compromising the lavery question may be adopted, better than the ne proposed. Galviknsis. Washington, July 28,1818. [7ic Compromise Bill?Adjournment of Congress. Both houses of Congress are still agitated by lie Blavery controversy, and it will continue to orm the exciting topic of discussion for the renainder of the session. 1 unfolded to you on yeserday, the plan for arriving at some satisfactory ompromise: namely, so to amend, in the Selate, the Oregon bill that will be sent from the louse, as to induce the institution of a commit-, ee of conference which may report some plan of ompromise satisfactory to a majority of both louses. The mortification of the Senate at the ummary execution done upon their pet bill, by he other House, is indescribable. It will be long ire th?y recover from the shock. So much law ind blarney thrown away ! Is it surprising that hey feel indignanti An analysis of the vote in the House shows a liferent result from that in the Senute.

Mr. Linn Boyd, of Kentucky, pleaded lard to have it spared for a time, at least until the House could ascertain whether it had any merit? jut Mr. Stephens was inexorable. The votes on iiis motion were taken amid profound silence, and thus was the Senate bill killed in the House, it may be guessed how much it was regarded as a one-sided measure, by the fact that no Southern Jemocrut, and hut eight Southern whigs, voted to ay it on the table. There was something in the framing of the bill, nconsistent with Mr. Cgfhoun's usual straightorwardness. He had declared it as his solemn :onviction that slavea might be carried to the new erritories, and be held and owned there under he protection of the conatitution. provided there should be no legislation forbidding it. He went arther. Before acquiescing in the provisions of he bill, he fortified himself with the advice of hr?e men of law, in whose judgment and acunen he placed unbounded confidence; and,then, horougnly persuaded that the question to be sub* nitted to the Supreme Court, has but one sideband hat a Southern side, he came into the Senate'and iflered to the North as a compromise, that which le felt convinced in his soul, with as much cerainty as he could feel on any subject, was no otnpromise at all. However bad may be the case >1 the North; and how reprehensible soever 1 Us ourse, there can be no doubt as to the fairness of uch conduct. Mr. Phelps was persuaded out of vhatever wits he had, that it was really aconcesion to the North, without saying that Mr. Caltoun "Has a tongue can wheedle with the devil." It cannot be denied he has a tongue that wheelled Mr. Phelps out of every position he ever occupied on the slavery question, and brought him iver to the support <>l views so ultra, that even hree-fourths of the Southern men have hitherto pgarded them as extravagant. Indeed, the Vernont Senator made such progress during the four lays of the session of the committee, under the uition of Mr. Calhoun, that he has even gained he compliments of the Union, for the genuinetesB of his pro-slavery sentiments, and tha case md dexterity with which he accomplished hisdificult somersault. Mr. Phelps has long been a can : lidate for the commendation of the Union. No nan in the Senate has exhibited more folly and xtravngnnce. He has vied with Mr. Turney in icts of shallow meanness. He has at length :arned the adulation of Mr. Polk's organ, by a :rowning act of perfidy to his constituents, and by l shameless recantation of principles, which he las always hitherto professed. This slavery controversy has gone too far to be latisfaetorily settled, except by sonve honest manly lompromise. The dark dealing promised by the till just killed by the House, was not honest or nanly compromise. The joint resolution to adjourn on the 14th of tugust, will probably come up for consideration, n the House, on Monday next. Galvix.vsis. Washinoton, July 29, 1848. Fragmentary.

Wh?n the onnrt cion4. ye?terd?y afternoon, Mr. Ketx tl?? Die trie t Attorney. wa? engaged In an arguinrnt in l%vor of allowing a man. by t*i? uarna of ' jeitt* Winter*, to teetlfy an to the eharacter of .ue defendant. It appear* that about fourteen month* ago, tiie defendant endeavored to make an arrangement for | ins saie ui stolen naves with Joseph S. Donovan, 0# | Baltimore, whose agout Winter* is The offer ?M Indignantly refused, and information given to tba polio* to tie on the look out fi r Dtaytnn, the defendant. Mr Carlisle for tie defence, contended that evidence of conversations bo far back could not be a tainted aa evidence of the defendant's mind, when the trausaetion for which he la now being tried took place, fh* argument wax continued thia morning. The lion. If. i Maun, for the defence, warmly contended against the admisiton i f the evidence?-that there wan no connection between that offer. If made, ami the present transaction and that if it could be proved the defendant went to liaiilmore and made aucb a proposition to otter strangers, it was either a proof of insanity, or a mere joke, which arose from knowing that the Baltimore mau was a trader in slaves I'hu Court decided not to allow the testimony, upon the ground that the transactions were not at all connected; the length of time which had elapsed was ot no material consequence, if a connection had been, or was. nought to b* connected. No evidence could le-admitted which wa* not directly relevant to the point at is.us. Mr >1. Omaici. a witness examined yesterday, was recalled to prove that a great deal of excitement existed when the prisoners were brought to Washington The District Attorney objected to such evidence. Mr. Carlisle contended that it was right to show what demonstrations were made to alarm ihe prisoner's mind, and thai it oaused him to deny bis master* " the abolitionists; that, in fact, cowardice alone was his motive in tn'uravoriuK m prove uimxeil a pirali-. rattler thill w one connected with abolitionism The Court overruled the further questioning of the * tineas upon this point. The question which wax objected to by the District Attorney wax, " Did you obxurro any weapons in the handB of the crowd ?" Kkllt Lamhki.i. stated, that he knew the prisoner for about a year; he made xeveral tripx here with a email sloop la*t summer, with cargoes of oysters and wood. He stated he sailed for hix health, and not to make money Mr. Carlisle objected to this testimony, for the same reasons ax Wint ir'x evidence wax objected to. The Court had no objection to witness proving the presence of the prisoner in Waxhlugtou. but sustained Mr. ( artisle as to stating what conversation took place. The WiTNr.sB continued, stating that he saw the schooner lVarl lying at the wharf, at Georgetown : she was not fully loaded. Draytou sa'd, that he had engagi d the schooner to take a load of timber down the river, to Philadelphia, but that as he could not at tba time get a full lead, he brought a few cords of wood te Georgetown. The prisoner stated, that be did not bring the wood to make a profit, but merely as ballast. He sold It to Mr. Thomas lteilly, for haif a dollar a eord more than be gave for It. There were 1H cords?the cbooner would carry fifty. Clou-Examined?Drayton said he only offered It to Reilly, and accepted the first offer made?$2 a i?t at t>0 days. Mr. Carliilk?That will do, Mr. Lambell; I'm done with you. Mr. Lamb ill?Thank ye, sir ; I'm very glad of it. And off he started without waiting for the $1 US he was entitled to, rejoicing, doubtless, at getting rid of the dirty atmosphere of the court. This closed the case on the part of the prosecution. Mr. Maun addressed the jury for the defence. He adverted to bis position as a strunger and as ontertaining different opinions upon certain subjects, which were doubtless entertained by many, if not all the jury. He, however, thought there was one common giound upon whicn they oould both stand-dvty. Both the jury and himself were sworn not to swerve from the path of truth. He appealed to them to drop any prejudice they might entertain upon the subject, and try the prisoner solely on the evidence. Give not, said he, the phantom of seeming right, and the enb> stance of injustice He referred to the immense mass . of indictments which had been prepared. If fonnd guilty of stealing, he conld tfo imprisoned for eight hundred and forty years?a period, which even Methusalah hinitelf. unices taken In hie byyhood. would fail in serving out: and, if oonvioted of the lesser offence, (of I assisting slaves to eecape.) he could be imprisoned^ and fined $16,000, a sum which he could never hope to* pay. The costs to the government were, to be sure, as a drop in the bucket; they would only amount to $8,480 for the District Attorney's fees. Here Mr. Key*, the District Attorney, interrupted Mr. Mann, by denying this assertion?the gentleman bad not sufficiently acquainted himself with the fact. Mr Cas lisle explained, that the Attorney's fsss were limited $0000 per anmim, but unttl that sum was reaohed, ten dollars for each iniliatinent was allow* ed. There were upwards of 300 indictments in the present case. Mr. Keys exhibited a good deal of irritation, when the Court interfered, and said that Mr. Mann should be permitted to proceed. Mr. Mai* continued, by adverting at length to the unnecessary costs which had been accumulated by the prosecuting officer. The prisoner would onlv be convicted? if convicted?upon one offence ; and he could not, after serving out that time, be again taken up and tried by this court for the name offence. He entered into a lengthy explanation of the law as regarded tho difference between enticing and stealing slaves The prisoner had been indicted under four Maryland laws, a separate indictment under each law ; and be (Mr. Mann) submitted it, that the prisoner could only be convicted under one law for one offence, and not four times convicted upon one crime. Nothing had been introduced which, if proved, would justify the conviction of the prisoner, except for abduction ; and that crime was not upon trial now. The law with regard to wild animals, was. that until reduced to the possession of a party, there was uo property in them, and when they escaped from such possession, the property ceased. He argued that a person could not be guilty of larceny. If be took possession of a slave whilst running away ; and that tho prisoner was merely found accompanied by a atuibw of runaway slaves who had left their masters before they came on board the schooner. The constitution no where mentions the abhorred name of elavo. Tha master cannot grind up the bones of the persona ha holds in servitude to fructify his land ; he cannot cut up his meat ;ihc is onlv entitled to the -'service* of the persons." as the constitution has it; and, in orffer to prove a larceny, vou must find that the person accused had appropriated the " cervices of the persons" to his own gain. It must be proved that evea if the prisoner did take this property from the hand of the owner ; yet if he did not take it, lucri nun. for dishonorable purposes, he will have to be tried under other laws ; he meant not to appropriate their services to his own use, but to convey them to a free 8tate. The law of nature assumes that every man is entitled to his own services ; and where a positive law does not exist to the contrary, the law of nature Is In foroe. He adverted to the fact, that one of the witnessee identified the time when tho offence charged, occurred by the torch-light precession which occurred the nieht be fore, in honor of the French revolution, end contracted tbo rcatiments of the speakers on that ocoasioB with the purport of the present trial. Senator Foote was liberally quoted from. (The first time the gentleman was ever brought in as an abolitionist, we imagine ) The Coi rt interfered here, and said it was not disposed to listen to a tirade against the institutions of the South. [It will startle not only Mr. Foote. but also bis warmest friends, to hear that bis eloquence is so megieal as to hare been the cause of the flight of the slave*. Mr. Fcote. after all, Is an abolitionist in disguise, and the good people of Georgetown should petition for hie removal from amongst them. Hie threats towards Hale were all sham I Mr. Caslisi.r said, that he thought the Court was mistaken as to the course of his colleague's argument. He (Mr. C.) had always breathed Southern air, and was the last man to sit quietly and hear her institutions reviled; but his colleague merely wished to show that the tendency of these speeches. Senator Foote's. principally, was to set the minds of the slaves at work, and to Induce them, of their own volition, to endeavor to procure their freedom. The Court observed, that a man must be very dull who did not see the drift of the argument, and it eould not sit there quietly and listen to an Inflammatory argument againat slavery, which was a recognised institution. Mr Mann wished briefly to show, that by the laws of nature, all men are free?that, by the laws of same communities, certain elasses are considered as property ; and that, as this property became valuable, its tenure became leu secure and that, as the slave acquired intelligence, he became aware of the speeches which were daily printed in this city, and that they bad the effect of tending to make the colored people pant for liberty He assured the Court he had no desire to make any inflammatory remark*. But if he could prove that Gen. Foote had made remarks about liberty, which perhaps affected the colored people Mr. Kkvs?The first thing the gentleman will do,will be to prove that Geo. Foote did so Mr. Mans?That oan be easily done. Mr. Kav<?What ' that he is an advocate against slavery ? Mr. Mass?Not exactly ; but that lie used the words I have read . The Court said, that it was more the manner end the application of the remarks which were olyeotloa*ble, than the remarks themselves. Mr. Kkt? objected to the reading of the newspaper publication of Gen Foote's speech, and all with the View to show that, perhaps. Hoover's slaves heard It, and It caused them to tumble themselves into the prl sonir's veesel Let him first prove that Gen. Foot* m.Hi, thn anaerh and then that Hoover's slaves heard it. The Coi r i did not sec any harm in reading the ppeeeh because the learned counsel may ray that they are hie own sentiments, and how can you prevent it? Mr. Maws thanked the Court for ita indulgeuce,and continued reading extract* from Gen. Foote's speech, a? it appeared in the Uniun. and contended that It wan the?e seeds cf liberty, which fell upon willing earn, that might bare induced them to make an appliration to the prleonur to convey them to the land of freedom; and the evidence would tend to ahow that something of the kind muat have been the oase.es their arrival wae totally unexpected a day or two previona, and that the prisoner could not ray how many elavea wool I be on board The truth wae, that tbeee elavea boarded the eehooner and took Drayton prieoner, and he wae compelled to carry them. Without concluding his argument, Mr. Mann requeued the indulgence of the Court to allow him to examine bis witnesses now. as they belonged to Philadelphia. and were staying here at ucta personal Ineonvenieuce to themselves. The Coort acoeding to the request. S.iMin, Nxi sol* wa.? sworn, and testified that ho had known Drayton for a number of years; that he waa a member of the Methodist Church, and that he kwitness) had never heard anything against the ren al character of the prisoner He had complained of his head on several occasions, and had. for a long r? artod, been under tbe doctor's hand He had been unfortunate last fall, in the lose of a vessel In the cross anamination, the witness said, that 1m
