V v TH NO. 5172. EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. London, July I t, IS IS. 11,e Chartist Trials?The Irish Arrests?Failures?Prince Albert?Agricultural Meeting? Cheap Literature? The A'tor Marre idy?London ShcriJ's. The Chartist trials are now at an end, and a general sentence of two years and three months imprisonment, has been imssed on oil rhe orison. ers; ul the e.\|iration o! which time they will have to find bail, in tolerably heavy amounts, to keep the peace. S> summary a way of disposing of these malcontents, must tend to cheek all further attempt:-at rioting, and teach a very uselul lesson to these inclined in raising disturbances without cause. Toe hundreds of poor deluded operatives, who huve become unconsciously the dupes of these men, now must feel themselves left in the lurch. To tiust their cause to a p trcl of people, who are anxious only for their own interest, and then discover they are 111 a worse position the a belore, is disheartening? to see they have contributed to a fund raised only to bring into notoriety a baud of orators, and then find they nr.- deserted, is no pleasant retrospect. It'is to be hoped .that it will show them the necessity of weighing in a proper balunce, the charact'r- of the persons they are resolved to trust in future; to seloct men of some | radical ability, eud r ood standing in the ali'airsol the country. The absurd Chartist scenes of late, have retarded the progress of the working man's charter, at least, for ten years. 1 do not mean they will not experience ben< fit for ten ' ears, but. iliut before the completion ** of their improved condition, a time of this dura- ; tion must elapse. The reason is this?that many influential people, formerly favorahls to the charter and its principles, now look upon it with distiust and. aversion. j.in re it mucn mole cause lor real discontent in Ireland, ut this present moment A week or two buck, they were toleubly quiet, ut least, m out- : ward appearance; but mischief lias been brewing; iln; clubs tire again beginning to parade the streets in double tile, and with military precision; speakers are boldt r at public n: vtitigs, and threatening notices are placarded ut the d 'ors of laud- | holders. The lovirnnient th n steps in, mi l Messrs. Dully, M?-toller, end Doheny, are arte ted, their papers examined, and the trials lixed for I 8th ot August. Surely, this jo no very prosperous stall for a country to he in, nor is it compiiui ui- [ tury t?> the management of Irish affairs by the : Fngli&h people. It mi.y be v. ry likely, that Ireland j is a nation requiring great delicacy indirection; I but no one who hu-> paid,dor tin- last twenty years, I any attention to the system ol legislation adopted for that country, can deny that it has been most j lazily brought into operation, and even then most incllecluiil. It was a sad ilung for Ireland when i the Jo. t her independence; truly, it was a triumph for England of might over right. Nothing to warrant particular mention lias oc- : curved in eiilcr of the houses of Parliament since j 1 I lust wrote. You will see this from the .summary. | It is probable it will he prorogued about the second %veek in August. Parties iif the House are in a ! very comical position ; in point ol fact, it is now almost impossible to suv what ore die different 1 sections, so divided nre they. Lord Russell relies , upon Sir Robert Peel for las support, which, gene- 1 rally speaking, lie is lucky enough to obtain. If j he did not succeed in numbering Sir Robert in his , ranks, the ministry would in u single niijht be I overturned. To imagine that we can go on in this j state, is to take a wrong view of the question. On J all sides people are complaining of the depressed state of trade: the shopkeepers, of all grades, are j loud in their exclamations against the policy of the i government; and I really do not believe that the j country's commercial interest was ever in so criti- I cal a position. The gazettes teem each day with ' announcements of the lailures of houses hitherto supposed to have been sound ; and speculation in mom y matters is entirely at a discount. About tins time last year, hunui 'dsand hundreds of railw ay companies were in various shapes distributing their money, either in the projection of new lines, or in the extension ot their trunk line. Now, notiling of the kind is heard of; the tew rails made by respectable and well established railway companies, ore met with difficulty. I was at a meet- i ing, the day before yesterday, of the shareholders | of the Toronto and Lake Union Kailway, held at the Canadian Company's office. Mr. Franks was in the chair, it was said there were no doubts but that the line must ultimately prove a most profitable concern, but that it was inexpedient to take immediate measures with reference to it. These i reasons were alleged:?That it would be better if it could be brought into connection with some other iines running through British North America ; and that the tightness of the money matket rendered it, at the present moment, mi linnriident proceeding. The directors a. sured the shareholders lliut tvtry possible endeavor had been in id" to keep down tlie expenses, which, iluriiiir the past I year, only amounted to ?75 i<)s yd, thus leaving u balance in hand of ?250 bis 3d. During the week, we have had an agricultural meeting, on a very large Bcale, at Vork, attended by nemly all the aristocracy (who take interest in 4 such matteis) in the Kingdom, i'rince Albert wm there. His i loyal Highness lies, tor some time past, taken an interest in farming .and breeding of cat lie. and consequently urn* ared much pleas. I with the proceedings. He hus, ut v irious exhibitions of u similar kind, gained frequent prizes, not awnriied to hint out ot battery, but 1 have heard mi.ny competent judges rentalk. that he deserved thmi. Agricultural societies are gaining growth in this country, being patronised by many of the rich nobility, who, in addition to enriching the funds of the association, personally take great iateiest in their welfare. Ot course itis unnecessat/ to stale that they are liable to abu;e ; and rumor's have been afloat to the ellect that the cuttle on tlie estates have been better fed utul cared for than the dependants. The principle of a " large number at a small price being belter than a small number at a large price," is being brought now fast int ? practice as regards cheap literature, more especially in newspaper Matters. The f knhj News was the first to break through the high price combination, and there is very reason for supposing the .paper to lie a remunerative concern. I>1 course it cannot he nntici- 1 paled to rival the Time* in point of numbers and pr< fit, but it will surprise you when I tell you that the number of stumps, according to the official return of tlie povi ri.ment, issued to this journal during the year 1H-I7, was 3,117,009, being within eight la', c: tit of the whole distributed to the other morn- I ing papers, the Tinu * excepted.

The season of 1841 2. like that of 184* 7, waa one af severe preaaure upon the meana of ttie laborer and the am all oapltaliat. arising, In both Instance?. from want of employment and high priced of food ; and the spring of 1831 rime at (he elce of a period ?>f three years during which trade waa alao restricted and the prinea of food unuauallv high.

Ae to the direction of this atresia of emigration? during the last twenty yearn, about half the emigrants of each year have gone to the United Stated; and of late years the number moving iu thst direction has in* erent-cd. A large proportion, also, of those landed at the ports ot the British North American oolonies, especially 'ho mere laborers, tind their way to the SlutcT within Uio first year or two. Deducting an uvi rege ol seven or eight per cent for all other places, the remainder go to our North American colonies. In the lour years, 1838-41, there was a considerable increaie of tin- emigration to Australia and Now Iriealuud. In 1811 the number reached 3'J.UOO : but since that year the a nr. ual average has uot exceeded 3 000 or 4 100. Ol' the emigrants of 1847. about three fifths (153 000) pnile(I from Kugllsh ports, and 05,700 from Irish, and 8 CioO from Scottit-li ports.

Many, however, were uo doubt uumarried. t. though above that age: and some, particularly among A the large proportiou of Irish peasantry, who do not wit- i i litigly depart from their elderly relatives, must have < been aged. Generally, the proportion of the sexes is us tl ftryorr.ble as could be expected; and is, perhaps, as p nearly equal as is desirable with reference to the tirst n arduous labors of a new settlement. It is remarkablo tl mat. idc proportion of adult females is considerably n larger among tl:c emigrants to Canada than among ti tlio.-e to the United States. This is probably attributable to tLe witiirand u ore various field o! exertion and enterprise ottered by yjjj States to young unmarried m?n. l One or two features of the returns remain to bo noticed. The Australian emigration seems to be furDished almost entirely by Kugland; by far the greater 1' part of it from 1'iyiuoutb, and nearly ail the re-t from '' London. Scotland sends nearly ns ninny to the West It Itdies (1(58) as Knglnud (105), notwith; and Inthe rt U iierence of six to one hi the pof ulal Ion.

A deputation the other day, which waited upon | 1 i n Shreckeustein, to express their suspicions at ; e e collection of troops, was blnlliy inhumed, that il tbe present moment there were already m iops in Berlin : "and if," added the minister, j m on give me any occasion tor them. I'll h *ve in | t, 1,010 more in six hours." This declaration is I In >ntf mpornncous with the dismissal of laborers u nployed by the government. The State refuses i> i? cognise the principle that it is bound to find w nploymcnt lor its curriers. As at Paris, their In in refusal ot piece-worK induced a dispute, ti hich has turned them adrift: and VonShrecken- i in in, the Cavaignac of the present crisis, though Ie it, ns we know of, n soldier himself, will resort 1 tc arms to suppress insurrection. ' m Thus Berlin has exactly followed the cycle, with t)i c exception of an outbreak, which Paris lias j !> ui phud. In both cases, distr-.-s and the want . Ii woik was a primary and material < ijir?* ol pi volution. The revolution made, the working ! w I'spslu ve sought to reap an exclusive benefit el the forced subjection ot their fellow citizens, | p. m ini!, in turn, h.\H produced a reaction.

[Fioni the I.ouiPui Tim .-, July S.I The last advices from II imburgh and tlie Baltic, bring the long-expeeted intelligence of the conclusion of tin armistice between the G nrrm Confederation and the Danish government. The primary condition of this cassation of hostilities is, of course, the evacuation <>l Si hh swi/hy tin* G rrnnn forces ; and we have ri a sou to believe that it has been agreed and conci dod that they should withdraw from both the Duchies. Tlie Swedish ruxilii.ry finny, which hndlaniled at Fuhnen, will return to the dominions of King Oscar, and the contested territory of Schleswig will remain neural for the whole period of the armistice, or until such time as a definitive peace has been condueled. With refeieiice to the government of the Itichies, duriDg this interval of time, and until lie authority of their lawful sovereign shall he tilly re-estuhiished, it is provided that die ocnl administration confided to live pe*rions, nativcH of tlie duchies, hut who have j teld no office in the provisional government if Iiendshurg, which is superseded. An e.v- i liange ot prisoners will, of course, take place, nd the Dunei-haw even consented to the restituion of the captured vessels taken into Copenhagen ' y their cruisers. Wc are not aware that this 1 onventimi, which is, in effect, a mere cassation J f hostilities, contains any provision for t|w ; nal adjustment of the m itters in dispute lieween the King of Denmark and a portion of s is German subjects. All those topics are re- ? erved lor discussion in the regular netrotia- 1 on : in case, however, that negotiation should ant 0 rove suet restful, the belligerent parties are to have ' term <1 one month, in addition to the three icnths of the armistice,to resume their respective , ositions. We trust, however, that long before p hp expiration oi that per.ml 1111 e- unhappy ?junrr^ 1 n fill bo finally set at lost; and having onec cxtriou- 1 i d thenuclves from the deplorable position to f flitch they had been driven by popular excit - ' ucnt, acting nn the total weakness ot their govern- 1 nents, tjie Ciprm us will not repeat : > dxngerot i 1 n experiment. \VY regret, however, tiia* the cnn assigned for the armistice hi i the notice is 0 long. Tlint delay is oi^Jy calculated to retard i he conclusion of ihe definifr -treaty, whichconl I i jitas \?> II have been settled in six weeks; and tit > lie expiration of that tin the Germans will pro- 1 ably have augmented their naval re some or ! inv even calculate on tin* chsncci of a winter , ampaign when the Bells may he irozen and Co- \ enhagen itself might lie uttacked by an hostile ( nny as it was in Hi57S. In reality, however, this campaign was net nn- !. rtuken for nny of the ordinary purposes of war; i has not been "dignified by ambition or even tie- 1 <J orated with military glory. It trasa mere purr >/" " niniratic rrnvcxati >n, compnrnblc to nothing so well as to ll<e mode in which Texas was incorpoitcd with tht United Stairs. Happily the spirit j. nd resources of the Danes proved fully cijunl to ! u te emergency, and there is no great probability i c lat Schleswig, or at least any consiih rable part | 1 it, wilj be added to the territories of the Ger- h inn empire. What, then, has Germany gained a y this war ?

The I ^ etnians marched out of the country by the sum' j oor by winch they entered it, as we predicted <i icy would, and they have not been able to impose ! i: single permanent condition on Denmark, or to , o ?eomplifch any definite purpose at all. Tlicy have ' ll at extorted any formal concession as to the rights j fl I the duchies, as to their union, or as to the law : 1 f siicccssionto be observed in tli.ni at the death | J f the reigning sovereign; and although these | ; uestions nay now fitly lie made the subject of ne- j j oti lion, they might also have been settled bv I trifle arrangement before a drop of blood had ? en shed, and before the feelings of the contend- j I! g | nrties had reached an excessive pitch of ex- ! ' fix laiion. But if Germany has obtained little in Denmark, j ^ y this expedition, she lias paid dearly for it iu her | .' <ten al relations and her internal condition. At J i ie moment when the sympathy of this eonntry was ! i ust sfiongly excited by the effort-' of the greatest j t ition.cf central liiirope to establish its unity nnil t' i consolidate its liberties, that cause was tarnished j ' r an ur t of mpreni" injustice, which will leave nn j J1 idelible Main on those.v.lio allowed themselves | i become the tools ot n popular aggression and a , v i< ngful war.
