I'rench Jljfuirs. <j c >J'CYVehav* bad several foreign arrivals here during the ?fk, which deserve notice. The West India ' steamer Dee dropped anchor here with the usual mails on Friday last, and brought eoine news of importance; fche bs 1 $.'00,000 in specie or freight, a valuable cargo, and e xty.eight passengns, ainonst whom were His Excellency. General Von Scholten, from St. Thomas, the Governor of the Danihh West India settlements ; also, His Kxcellency. Governor Shortlaud, the British Governor of Nevis You will, perhaps, have learned the particulars of the insurrection in the Island of St. Croix, which began on the 2d July, by.the slaves rising, en mine, and oonmencii g to burn and destroy the property of the planter". His excellency, the Governor, M. If on Sehlo. ten, was sent for from St. Thomas, and proceeded to the Island of St. Croix, whero?finding the insurrection a general one, and conceiving that he was in personal danger, and in the power of the rebels; after ( quiring of the slaves what they wanted, and being informt d that they required their freedom, and that if it wtio not granted they would plunder and destroy everyt) ing?the worthy governor immediately nro Claimed their unconditional freedom from thut day, and al. o the freedom of the slaves iu the adjoining island. This ounce; sion seemed to satisfy them for a fewds;.-; but shortly after*ards they broke out into ' open insurrection, with a view of taking possession of the country and establishing an independent government. In this juncture the nourageof the Danish governor forsook him, and be is aco <sed of acting with indecision nearly fatal to the lives and property of the respectable inhabitants. Determined, however, that their I roperty should be preserved, some of the principal planters and others, Insisted that the Governor General should resign his authority; this he did. and a commission of public safety was formed, and strong measures were undertaken to repress the aggressions of the n? groes; reinforcements were obtained from St Thorn: - and from Puerto llico, and a good deal of fighting took place and a number ofthe insurgents were phot and taken prisoners,^ud the island coinpa-ativelv quieted. The Governor General resigned and came home iu the Dee. Thus, in a few days, slave emancipation * as declared in tile Danish West India Colonies; end it is affirmed the change w.ll ruin the islands and their trade. We a';o received news lrom Jamaica that some disturbat (es amcust the emancipated blacks were prohableiu that island, partly arising from the inability of the planters to give employniout, and from a vague Jtar un rgsl t&H negroes that they would agaiu be enslav I The governor had concentrated some strong i^stra 1 d!r* of police in and around the disaffected district < . it wii' likewise stated that Puerto Rico eras likely soon to be ti e theatre of bloodshed and war between the African end European races. Also, that Cuba was ripe for r> bullion Witt- the exception of the Spanish West Indian Colonies, d ivery may now be said to be abolished in the <whoie 11 the West India Island". It is broadly stated in Kngisr.d that the negroes of Cuba will soon rise | and tli w off the yoke of shivery This, 1 need scarcely tell yo . would be looked upon with muoh aatisfiiotlon, not on'.y by the Exeter Hall philautrnpists. but by all the n tenants connected with the ^Intisb Antilles. Thaab tuition of slavery in Cuba, would be the ruin of that Ifliiud, as a sugar producing colony, in the same "ratio Hat slave emancipation has ruined fainaica. or as slave emancipation will ruin Martinique Go*laloupe. St Croix, St Thomas, kc if the llritisb West India planters could only manage to get rid of the -competition of slave grow, sugar from Cuba, all would go well with them, and they might hope for something like a revival of prosperity, and, therefore, anything, like a i evolution in Cuba, is looked upon with a very favora' !e eye as being ouu of the most fortunate circumstances that oould happen for the interest of the ytuSerii g British Colonies in the west A of i tain portion of the Hi itieh pi-ess is figctting -itself a great deal about the designs of the United I States on the Island of Cuba and it is broadly asserted that the American government is lending it-elf to in trignes with the discontented inhabitants of the Island Vfltb a view to bring about a severance front Spain. ' and ac nexation to the United States. I needscarce'y Otell yo-t that, amongst well informed Britishers, thi? Idea d"-a not very strongly cxi-t. and it is not believed that the United Status government is detirous to become immediate possessors of Cuba It is known that a great many of the inhabitants of Cuba are dissatisfied. and very justly dissatisfied, with the way they are ruled by Spain; that the surplus revenue of the 'Island, amounting to several millions of dollars does not go. as It should do, to improve its internal condition, hut is annually remitted to Spain, for the support of a brutally, corrupt, tottering, and emasculated administration; and it is thought that a portion of the inhabitants would gladly throw off the Spanish yoke, and would prefe- the Detection or the Star Spangled Banner, to the grinding oppression of Spanish misrule, but still; the impression in England is, that the Spaniaid3 generally iu Cnha would prefer establishing an independent republi: in their island, and it is expected that this is not far distant I was speaking the other day'with an employee of the Foreign Office in Downing street, who has a good opportunity of learning what the views really entertained by some of the ministers inreference to Cuba, and I ama-suredthat England would not object to a severance of Cuba from Spain, and the establishment of an independent government either republican or monarchical, but as a nine qua non the emancipation of the slaves would be insisted on; and.moreover, I am assured that England would not greatly object to the island ot Cuba falling Into the hands of the United States, but the same proviso of slave emancipation would be required, iu fact, to get rid of the competition of slave grown sugar from Cuba, the British government would not hesitate to permit its being alienated from Spain in any way most ? leasing to the population Whether full relianoe I to be plaeed on these statements I can hardly tell von; but 1 am clearon one bead, that there is not any fear whatever of England herretf taking possession of Cuba. She has West India colonies enough, aud is onlv anxious that they should be put on a fair footing with other colonies in respect to their productions. The next West India packet will bring us an account of the reception in Jamaica of Lord John llus ell's proposition for relief, as propounded in the House of Commons on 16th June last. I prognosticate that the West Indians, both planters and merchants, will t>e disfatisfled with it, as well they may. It is like a morsel of sop to a hungry roan, aad it may possibly increase the discontent. What however, the British government cannot or will not do tor the West Indians, appears likely *o be accomplished by the mere course or events?i menu ine tranuiii nomuinn 01 islarery in the Danish.

Barbados*, Trinidad, tec , and render the competition of the dreaded Havana and Puerto Kico sugar not half so formidable in the British market. Financially speaking, the British "West India Islands are in a horrible plight. Jamaica, for instance, is bankrupt, and the treasury exhausted, the receiver general having 10 Issue a notice that there feeing no money iu his hands he could not pay the quarter's salaries due Jubh doth, and it was very doubtful if the September payments could be met, there being a deficiency of $70 OOtt.

The Malta is intended to leave Southampton about the 20th, for India, where she will take her station in carrying the mails between Point de Ualle Ceylon, and the British settlement of Hong Kong, in China. During the present week we have hid no arrivals from the coasts of Spain or Portugal, aud I have, tbure; fore, no direct intelligence to communicate to you from those parts. With regard to Spaiu. it is believed that a great desire exists on the part of the Spanish cabinet to resume diplomatic relations with the court of St. James's. Already it is stated that the Duke of Sotomagos is to be permitted to resign his post of minister of foreign affairs, on the plea of ill health, but doubtlets with the Intention of propitiating Lord Palmerston. The two couutrles, Kugland and Spain, are in | the position of two lovers who have quarrelled, and are . in a state of ''tiff." as it is called here; neither one liking tospeak first, but both desiring to be friends. I question, however, if the British government cares much about making it up with the existing Spanish government, as the idea is prevalent that a great and startling change will, ere long, take place in Spain,and that the present administration only exlstson the sufferance of the mudrralot and prugnessn'a parties ? Meantime, the flarlist insurrection does not seem to be gaining ground so fast as was anticipated, and it is feared that the struggle will be postponed till the ensuing year, only to bo resumed with that ferocity oommon to the Spanish civil wars Some sensation has been excited on the London I stock exchange, particularly amongst the holders of iiji-xicbu i-uuiis. iu conecqiiencu oi wii'publication or a letter from SVnor. bis excellency Don Joeo Luis M.

To tl e Mexican Con?ui iu l?> niton. This communication is not at all understood on the stock exchange, particularly as the statements are in direct contradiction to the advises received per last Mexican mail, by the committee o Spanish Americau bondholders, from .Messrs. Mi nning Si Macintosh, the agents in Mexico. Those gentlemea represented that they had had a satisfactory conference with the Mexican goveviment, on the subject of overdue dividends, a d they hoped by the next packet to advise that a portion of the indemnity money would be set apart for remittance to England on dividend account, it is, I therefore, thought curious that the Mexican government should assure the agents in Mexico of a desire to settle satisfactorily with the English bondholders, and by the same packet send over different Instruotions to their minister in London. Don Jose Mora's letter is thought to be suspicious, from the faot that it wt.i only published on the 7th of August, when the last Mexican packet arrived on the '24th of July, and it is stated to be only a move of his Excellency's to keep down the advanrory price of the bonds, as he is supposed to be a great ''bear" in them, and is known to have expressed himself that he would take care the stock should not improve much. The British government has made an arrangement with an incorporated company, called the India and Australia Mail Steam Paoket Company, for the conveyance of the English mails from Singapore to Sidney Mails, passengers, and small packages will be conveyed as heretofore, by the vessels of the Peninsular aud Oriental Steam Navigation Company, via Southampton, Alexandria, Sues, Aden, and Ceylon toSingapore ? the voyage from Southampton to Singapore ooeupies forty-two days; the distance between Singapore, by steamer, is estimated at twenty-two days, so that by this route the colony of Australia will be brought to a distance ox nine orer two muniu* inrai ?treat nritain j The advantage* of the measure to India. China, and the commerce of ?he Kastern Archipelago. can hardly be too highly estimated, while in Its bearings at the present time on the mutual prosperity of Kngland and Australia, it is likely to prove more important and mere in harmony with public opinion than any other step which could have been devised. The British government, in addition to the above. has granted a sum of f>25 000 per annum, for ten years, to encourage steam communication between Kngiaiid and the Cape of Good Hope. 1 do not. however, henr of any company having yet been formed to accept this grant and carry the projeot into execution. 1 have heard a whisper of a company on the tapis to run via Gibraltar and Madeira, or the Cape d? Verde Islands, to the Cape of Good Hope, with a branch to Mauritua, Southampton to be the depot; but at present there would appear to be very little disposition amongst capitalists to embark in the enterprise. 1 have just heard of the Ws hlngton's safe arrival at Bremen. She left Cowes' roads, on the 4th instant, at 7 a.m.. and arrived off the VVeser in the afternoon ot the &th, thus accomplishing the distance ot 480 miles in 32 hours, and having attained a speed of 13 to 13)^ miles per hour. The present trip of the Washington to Lurope may be reckoned to be her most successful voyage.?from New York to Bremen, including six hours detention oil Cowes. to land mails and passengers, has only occupied 1& days 2 hours, or. say 14da>s 6 hours uuder steam, performing a distance from New York to Bremen of 3,t>3o miles. 1 understand she will be full of passengers and freight on the homeward voyage, and is expected here from Bremen on the 17th,to leaTe for New York on the 20th.

It is very evident therefore, that formal negotiations, which had been broken off. have now bean resinned, and as the question is warmly taken up by the mercantile int Test, and continually brought before the notice of the llnuse of Parliament I think I am not far wrong in assuring you that much, time will not elapse, ere a settlement, one way or the other, will be come to 'Tie a perfect farce that two great nations (professing to be the greatest mercantile nations) should quarrel about the postage of a letter ; a question which if two men of business had met to arrange, would have been put on a satisfactory footing in five minutes Vet such is diplomacy.

It appears, by tho most recent accounts, that Milan has actually capitulated toKadetxky and the Austrian forces. It Is, therefore, evident that Krenoh and English mediation will arrive too late, as it is hardly possible that the Austrian commauder-in-chief will oonscnt to evacuate Milan and give up Lombardy, just to please the French in their ideas of Italian liberty The peace of Europe now hangs on & thread, and it Is hard to tell how the present difficult and delicate position will terminate. Marshal Uadetzky will in out certainly tell the British and Krenoh envoys, that negotiation* for peace are of no use, because peace has actually been obtained through his re-oonquering the ltaliau States, which had revolted; and the necessity for war no longer exists, now that the King ef Sardinia has beeu driven back into his own territories. The French government would be going too far in sending an army to drive the AUstrntns out of Milan; because, as matters stand, it would be an act of French aggression on Austrian territory, rather than interference to fiut a stop to hostilities. The British government is ikewise In a very onrious and perplexing predicament. Before the overwhelming success of the Auatrians was apparent, the British government coalesced with j France, to effect a peaoeable mediation, with a view to a a suspension of hostilities in Italy, and a settlement o the matters in dispute between Austria and Klngt'harles Albert. Tbe object of Lord Palinerston'a coalition with theKrenrh government,wasevidently to prevent France froui marching an army over tbe Alps, to the assist* 1 auce of the Italians While, however, these arrange- | ments were going on. the Austrian commander was i following up his successess with surprising rapidity, and actually outstripping the negotiations in Paris and London, for an amicable arrangement and probable partition of Lombardy, bv (as it would appear) taking possession of the whole country by force of arms. Supposing Francs now undertakes a war with Austria, to make that power give np a territory which has belonged to her for many years, and which she lias just reconquered. Kngland could not, on any consideration. be a party to the war ; because the possession of these very states has been guaranteed to Austria by England, in the treaty of Vienna. If, therefore, France is so blind as to fight Austria, she will break the treaty of Vienna, and bring down upon her head the ire of tbe whole German confederation, with Russia; and. it is supposed, that France could scarcely be prepared to fight, single-handed, Austria. Prussia and Russia By telegraph to Liverpool to-morrow, you will no doubt get a little later news than 1 can give you in reference to this all important question If it should turn out that Milan has not capitulated and that the representatives of Kngland and France have been enabled to reach the headquarters of Marshal RadeU* ky before be has retaken Milan, and have euooeeded in prevailing upon him to stop hostilities, to pave the way for an armistice, then tbe aspect of the matter will be changed and it will have been more easy of a favorable solution. You will read in tbe Euglisli papers full accounts of the Italian war, and of the rapid progress of the victorious Austrlnns towards Milan Vou will also see that Sir Robert Abereromble.the British minister at Turin, went to the Austrian commander at Cremona and requested six days' armistice; b*.t Itadetz- 1 ky's reply was. unt one hour till I have entered Milan a.* a conqueror.

Archduke John?His Position?Important Proceedings of the National Assembly?Prussian National Assembly?Stocks. If it ever was the lot of one man to be called to fill two cflices at the same time, equally important, peihaps, and certainly equally responsible, that nihil is the Archduke John, of Austria. The German people, in electing the Archduke as governor sf the empire, have entrusted him with the highest i degree of confidence that a people ever placed in a man, who, though of well known integrity of character and line personal qualities, had given, usyct, no proof that he possessed that measure of talent and capability, which is necessary for the head of a great and newly established^ State, situated R3 Germany is, without any firm unity among its people, and in the midst of the present political aud social revolution of Europe. The German princes, the majority of whom have sanctioned the election of the Archduke, have done so wholly guided by the confidence that their power will be more successful I v maintained through the author ity of an imperial governor, who is himself a prince. The difficulty of the position of the Archduke, as Governor of Germany, is obvious; but his position as the imperial representative in Austria, is not less difficult. Here, serious quarrels between the different Sclavonic nations must he adjusted?a unity between the Sclavonic and German subjects "of Austria established, and a constitution for the whole empire, suitable to all these different nations, framed Thus the duties devolving on the Archduke in his double capacitv, as the Imperial Governor of Germany and the Imperial Representative in Austria, are more than any mortal could perform in the present time; and it remains to be seen how he will be able to fulfill his task to the satisfaction of all. On the 15th inst. the Archduke 1-ft Frankfort, after he had been installed in due form as the Imperial Governor of Germany. lie will open the Austrian Parliament on the lSih inst., at Vienna. As ministers for Germany, only three have been appointed yet: V. Schmerling, from Vienna, as Minister of the Interior and of Foreign Affairs; F.G. Hecksher, from Hamburg, Minister of Justice; E. V. Peucker, from .Schmtedeberar, Minister of War. Before his depnrture from Frankfort, the Archduke issued a proclamation to the German people, in which he admonishes to order and quiet, I and promises to do all in his power to restgre a state of peace and tranquillity in Germany. In one of the latest sittings of the National Assembly, at Frankfort, the resolution was passed, that the King of Hanover, who had refused, ill , proclamation recently issued, to acknowledge the , supreme power of the German government, should he urged to do so forthwith. The debates were very lively, and the Assembly expressed its de- , termination to force the King of Hanover either to recognize the new German government, or to resign his crown. A feeling against England, which is growing stronger as the German nation is about to unite as one people, and to shake ofl the commercial dependency, in which England ] has held Germany, to the great disadvantage of the latter, for siirh a length of time?is eontri- j buting to render also more unpopular the King of Hanover, who has always been acting in the interest of England, and is stiH opposed against tlm establishment of unity in Germany. The great commercial questions relative to the future policy of trade of Germany with foreign countries, will not be settled till Germany will have obtained a more firm state of political unity, and until a custom-union will have been established throughout Germany In this city, no revolutionary disturbances have taken plaee lately. The Prussian national assembly continues to make hat little progress in thp course of its proceedings. The government here has been gaining strength since the Burgher-guard is assisted tiv military forces, ot wlnrh utmost I daily fresh arrive.

Artists in Boston.?It will be seen by the proceedings of the Hoard of Aldermen yesterday, that the indecent and ridiculous exhibition, under the name of "Model Artists," !ihh been forbidden by the fathers of the city. We understand that the vote in the Hoard, against granting a license to the proprietor of this exhibition was unanimous. The exhibition is obviously indecent, and would be dangerously immoral, if its disgus'ing absurdity did not outweigh its pernicious tendency What can be more ridiculous than the idea of illustrating perfect art by an exhibition of deformed nature TrnvtHtr, Augwsf 29 iQt ? - ? -jrarrv.

( Krom Osl>Knmnt'M Meanenger Aug S.J The Him Public (Lanwrlinr's organ) has hi article urging tb?* French government to loierv-ne in the affair of Italy. This is probably as a com.)!!mint to M . de Lamartine, who, although wh"ii in office, he expressed in the strongest terms his d?'- i sire that France should do her utmost to abstain from an interference with foreign States, which, leading to a war, might embarrass the French government in its endeavors at home to establish the rennlilie on a firm and hnnnrshle linui, <l..,.l?>-,.,I that, if Italy should be unable to accomplish he! , own independence and apply tor the aid of France, it would be given. It is to be borne in mind, however, that the present government of this country is not bound by any pledge given by a self-constrtuted power, which could only assume itself to he the representative of public feeling, and it would perhaps have been more prudent and more proper to have left the decision of the course to be pursued to a government chosen by the representa- I fives of the people, and which could alone have a 1 right to adopt a definite ^resolution on sq grave a i question. The Bien Public seems to assume that tnnt the eventuality named by M. de Camartinehas really occurred; whereas, nothing has transpired to prove that the intervention of France has been applied for by Charles Albert, who, since the annexation of Lnmbardy and Venice to his crown, is the only patson who can be recognized by the French government, unless it he intended to re-re volution ize Italy, and deprive Charles Albert of his new rights, in which case, Mislead of being the ally of France, he would become her enemy The accounts given of the various missions from 1'aly are so vague and contradictory, that, as yet, we are in the dark as to the real nature of the communications that have been made to the French government. We are told, on the one hand, that the provisional government of Milan has applied for absolute and immediate intervention, and that Charles Albert has asked only that the principle of intervention may be established as a sort of moral force, added to his own material means of operation, this tmpos- . tng upon Austria a conviction of ihe necessity of i negotiation whilst there is still an opportunity of negotiating with honor. We do not comprehend how the government of Milan, which has recognized Charles Albert as the sovereign of Loin- | bardy, and which has a commissioner as his representative, can have 111 ade an application to the French government, without the concurrence of that commissioner. If such an application has ' been made, it implies the intention of detaching Lorn hardy from the cause ol Piedmont; and this would he a complication of affairs which would { render the intervention of France, under such circumstances, not rr^rrely a declaration of war against Austria, hut also against the King of Sar- ! dfnia. The Bicn Public says Without any doubt, it would have tmen desirable (hat the Italians should have been able to suffice themselves for the holy work of their enfranchisement, i France then would not have been obliged to go to shed 1 her blood and spend her gold In Italy She would not I havo irritated the susceptibilities of Uermany, of which the alliance is precious, and she would not be led to engage in un enterprise which will give Russia greater facilities to cut out a path towards Constantinople but since, niter all and In epite of all, events appear to have imposed on France the sacred obligation of this Intervention, wo must accept it Once again, then, the Frenoh armies are about to pass the Alps?once again they are about to see those places illustiatrd by so inany victories, but at present, it is not the desire of conquest which will guirlo us but of deliverance Italy must, be freed from the foreign yoke, i She must, hoose herself a government which will sat- ! isfy her wants and desires, and be in accordance with I her political temperament If monarchic*!

How, then, was it , that there had been new disasters ' Was it true that disquietude was kept alive expressly to prevent coufi- i dence frotn returning, and to orgauise misery every- . where? The chiefs of the insurrection were in Vinc-nnes, but their spirit survived amoug the concoctors of Insurreetiou. At Belleville a olub cast bails, and the club of the Mentagnards covered the walls with incendiary proclamations; that body thereby revealing itselr, though, having been dismissed, it no longer legally existed Two placards insulting the representatives were stuck on the walls, and on 17th Juoe other placards, railing M. < nussidii re to the bead of the republic, and announcing the organisation of the ban quet at 25 centimes, were affixed The excitation ot the clubs, arcordi og to M Arago, had alons caused the civil war. A witness, placed at the bend of the administration ot n railway, had stated that in that company the engine drivers earned bUOOf and upwards a year, and yet that all these men bad joined in the insurrection of June 14.

The 1 nMirrect ion had its manufactories of powder, its chiefs, its organization, and the police remained passive! ? Kven on June 23. the republican guards who had been previously dismissed, received their pay, and appeared the dayafter behind the barricades in May, M. Trouve Chaave). the Prefect of Police Informed the executive committee that the national workshops were the hotbed ; of the agitation, and the men of the Droits del Homme were the principal agitators. The report then, arrived at the day when the insurrection broke out, declares that the object of the movement was nominally a democratic and sooial republic; but in reality pillageit was, in fact, a savage war carried on with poisoned balls. (Movement.) To complete their task, the ootnmiltee would notice the political men found compromised in the insurrection M.
