T'it Prorogation of Parliament?Queen's Speech ? Departure of the Court?Chartist Insanities?Orean Monarch, the Inquest?More Railway A ciilea!s ? Theatrical?Agricultural, 44C-> 4'c. Parliament now stands prorogued until the 2d of November. The lengthy session we have had, was brought to a conclusion by the Queen in person, on Tuesday last. The speech bore much same the appearance as the j generality of royal speeches, vis., a congratulation to the members of both houses for the business they had got through during the session. It made particular reference to the passing of the act for the prevention of crime and outrage in Ireland, and also referred to the relief that had been given to that oountry, by contributions raised in various parts of the united kingdom. The decision displayed by the Lord Lieutenant, during the late disturbances, was commended in n marked manner. Thanks were, of course, voted to the . members of the Commons, for the readinoss with which I they bad agreed to the grants aud estimates asked for; i and. alter a brief statement of the progress of our diplomatic relations with foreign countries, her Majesty left the house, immediately proceeding to Woolwich to embark on board the royal yacht, in order to be con- ! veyed to Dundee, where it is purposed the oourt will remain for a short period. No parliamentary matters, 1 of the least interest, hare been debated during the past j week, if I except a discussion of a personal character, between Mr. Berkeley, a late member, and the gentle- | men of an election committee. The former impugned. I in very strong terms, the conduct of the latter, but as Mr. Btrkeley's character did not stand in particularly ! good odour witu the House of Commons, the assailed parties were advised to treat the matter with contempt. Thus has been brought to a conclusion, a session of long duration, in the course of wi ich little business has been done; but which, nevertheless, has, from a variety of circumstances beyond control, been rendered exceedingly anxious. Ministers have not satis* tied the expectations of the country. They have given notice of the introduction of measures of importance to the oommon weal. which, when the time arriv d for discussion, were abandoned. Those that have been carried bear but slight evidences of being of any use; nn/l nHilffothai1 O riurlinmuntueu euaolnn Kan ?Ai ? p,- ? I - UUl, 1?[ pome constderable time past, been brought to an end, that baa excited fo much general disapprobation amongst the intelligent circles or the empire. A few more chartiFt arrests hare been made, but really of so Insignificant a character as to be scarcely worth mentioning. It is reported.that twenty-eight yrersons have been apprehended at Ashton, (the place where a policeman was. lately, brutally murdered) besides two or three at Manchester, and one at Liverpool. They do not. however, relate to any of the loaders of the movement, but conceru the small fry of the transaction. Chartism it now at a considerable discount. The inquest on the Ocean Monarch terminated on Saturday : and the jury, after bringing in a verdict of accidental death, censured, in severe terms, the conduct of the captains of the Cambria a^id the Orion.? This has excited some surprise, more particularly as C aptain Murdoch, of the Ocean Monarch, at an early part of the inquiry, absolved these gentlemen from all blame, stating that they mu?thave been at a great distance from the ship when she took fire. [This I communicated in my last letter ] The decision of the jurymen has called forth a letter from Captain Hunter, of the Cambria, (which is a Welsh ship) wherein he impugns the remark of thu coroner, " that it was easy to discover whether the vessel was an emigrant ship, or any other." and also proceeds to justify his proceedings In the matter. The list of contributions in aid of tha sufterers has reached four thousand pounds, in addition to which an smateur theatrical performance will he given by the officers of the Liverpool garrison, the proceeds of which will be devoted to the same cause. Three very severe accidents have occurred on tha London and North Western railway, by which two -.,.c.nnc v,?v? l,nsn killed and thirtv or fortv se.riouslv bruhed. The inquest ban not by Its proceeding's thrown much light upon the matter, but there is not a doubt the unfortunate occurrences have originated in consequence of the carelessness of some of the subofllcials connected with the line. An invitation has been sent to Louis Bianc, from some political frieuds of bis who are in London, to attend a " sympathising demonstration'' which they had intended to have got up during M. Diane's stay in the metropolis. The invitation has been declined by Louis Blanc ?the alleged reason being tbat be is unwilling to meddle, even in the remotest degree, with political parties in Kng land The sale at Stowe, the residence of the Duke of Buckingham, is proceeding. The amount already realised is enormous, and the auction Is not yet near its conclusion. Theatricals are very low for the present; but may, perhaps, revive in a few months, when the winter cam paign commences. Both the opera houses are closed, and the principal performers are distributed through the provinces, tinging at festivals. Jenny Ltnd has to sing at Worcester and one or twr of the large towns; but 1 do not think she will appear again in town. Macre&dy, I believe leaves for New York in the Acadia to-moirow. in addition to the arrangements communicated to you a few weeks back.

Its fall made me tremble, for I predlctod a gTMl Of(U in my last uenpatcu. urins vur wee&, via* harvest hu been wall nigh completed. The various reports respecting the potato orop are more cheering ; and. certainly, on the whole, the grospects of the country, as to the eupply of food, hare Improred considerably during the last fortnight. Respecting potatoes, an Isle of Man paper says ''Farmers hare poured them Into our town In such quantities, (in consequence of tho disease) that they are now selling at 2d. a 2)?d. per 14 lb. Scarcely mor* than one-hall of those dug^re sound " At, they hare had ' the rery Cnest harrest woatht r " The Enniikilltn Chronicle says, after rery carefol Investigation, it has arrired at the conclusion that "the failure will not prove so extensive, in that quarter, as a as believed a week or two ago.'' The Cork f'raminer, of Monday, contains equally cheering reports from the counties of Cork and Kerry. The Scoltman, of the Oth, says "About one half of the harvest, in the lower district of Mid Lothian, may now be reported as safe in the stack yard." The Olnetou Chronicle, of Wednesday, says :?"During the last eight days, in this part of the country, the weather has been highly propitious, and a good deal of harvest work done under favorable circumstances." The gale, which lately visited the east coast of Soot( land, has proved a most disastrous affair. The tstal . ' loss of life Is 93. The destruction ef boats and nets, is calculated to amount to about T?,000 Could not a subscription of $5000 be raised, without difficulty, in the city of New York alone, for the poor sufferers ?

In two or three days, it was expected that a monthly instalment would be paid to the passive classes. A communication on the subject of the quicksilver mines, was expeoted hourly from M.

The Mishcps to the Steamships United States and Hermann? The West India Steamer. <Jr. Two mishaps have occurred to American steamers, which it is necessary I eliould couiuiuuiuwia yuu this week. The first was the mail steamer Hermann, Capt. Crabtree, from New York, which vessel had the bad luck to get ashore iu Gurnet Bay, Isle of Wight, on >ionday morning last, during a very thick fog. The Hermann had made a most excellent voyage from ycur city , c.f under thirteen and a half days. She took on board a pilot at the usual place, between Portland Bill and tbe Needles and passed through the Needle rocks in rafety ; but, on nearing Cowes. it being about 1 A. M. in the morning, a very dense fog came suddenly on, and, from this cause, added to seme variation having been discovered in the needle of tbe compasses, tbe Hermann went on the ground in Unrnel lli>;, udoui iwo miles iroui i u*ra The engines were immediately reversed ; but. m the tide wuh fast ebbing, all efforts to backoff the ship were unavailing, and Captain Crabtree was forced to wait till daybreak, when assistance was promptly rendered to him by a small steamer, which was waiting for the mails and passenger*. Fortunately, the weather was perfectly calm, and thus the measures for getting the Herman off were facilitated. Lighters were prooured from ("owes ; a large quantity of ooals were discharged; the anchors, chain cables, and some heavy gear, were hoisted out, so as to lighten the ship, against the next high tide ; and preparations were made to pump the water out of the boilers, in ease such a proceeding should be found necessary. The measures thus taken, I am happy to say, were attended with success ; and, at high water, on the 4th inst., 3 o'clock in the afternoon, the. Hermann floated gently off the shoal on which she bad grounded not having received the slightest damage from hi r twelve hours' detention on the mud. The Hermann then made for the anchorage in Cowee reads, where she took in the ooals and stores which had bsen discharged; and sailed the same night for Bremen The accident might have been attended with serious consequences to the ship, had she gone anywhere else in the bay. as there are a number of awkward rocks in the vicinity; fortunately, however. she went on a comfortable clay mud Dottom, and not being at full speed when she struck, was the cause of such a favorable termination to the mishap The passengers by the Hermann presented a most congratulatory and complimentary letter to Captain Crabtree. to whom not the slightest blame is attributable, as the ship was In charge of a most experienced pilot. The Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company's ship Pot tinger when coming home from Alexandria. in 1S47. went on shir.i within 1,000 yards of the same place: and the British man of war Cyclops was also ashore there, for a few hours, in the same yesr. The Hermann may be said to have a second timo befiien ID?? America ??n van Tuynge iruni i^nw 1 urn. iu Kurope. The America arrived la*t week in 13 day* and 21 bout*, where** the Hermann'* preaent voyage ha* only occupied 13 day* 12 hour*?both *bip* having reported live day*' bad weather and head wind* after leering the American coast*. The Aoadla arrived at Liverpool from Bo*ton at 5 P. M on the 4th inatant; and taking into account the reapectire distance* traversed, the Hermann ha* also had an advantage, In point of speed, over the Acadia. I am thus particular in giving you the exaot detail* of voyage* or the competing transatlantic steamers, because I kno that the Interest at present excited by their various and comparative performances 1* very great, and I am anxious that you should be In possession of oorrect information, to lay before your numerous readers The Liverpool people are very loud in their ohuek11 ng ovir the defeat experienced by the Hermann, on her last voyage from Southampton to New York; but It must be borne in mind that she had a very heavy oargo and was deeply laden too deeply for her to go at full speed It Is. however, undisputed, that hitherto the Hermann has made the (juickest voyage ever vet known from New York to Knrope. I allude to her 1 voyace last July? and that she has two chalks to the ; America's one I am sorry now to have to allude toamore serious disaster which has bvf'albn that splendid ocean steamer, the I United States. After leaving Havre, on th* 2d Inst., with 80 passengers, and a moat valuable eargo. she called off Cowes for Lngllsh passengers, ko., which i were embarked, and she finally sailed on the following Jsy for New York She proceeded only so far as th* Scilly Islands, when it was discovered that the bosses which are fastened to the condensers on which th* main centres work, had cracked, and thus the safety of the engines was jeopardised, unless immediately repaired. A meeting of the passengers was Immediately called by Captain Hackntaff. and it was unanimously agreed that the ship should return to Southampton, to have the defeot made good. The United States, accordingly, reached Southampton water in safety, on the evening of the 0th, wss docked the following morning, and the engineers are hard at work in repairing her.

Tbe monotonous dullness which !.aa existed for the last ten days still prevails. It Is true that tbe Premier has paid us a visit, but, with that exception, I may say there is nothing of any interest going forward. The plan for a rotatory Parliament still gains ground. The Duke of Lelnster has. however, declared ' against it, who appears to bare grounded his opinion upon a letter written by a Mr. Anthony Guinness, (supposed to bare been Mr.Guinness, the great brewer, but the real person has slnoe been dlscorered. but who ho is, or what he is, no one knows). On Monday 1 last the society held a meeting in Abbey street, Lord I IVin. Fitzgerald in the chair. After the admission, as i members, of several noblemen and gentlemen, the fol- 1 lowing resolution was unanimously adopted ? ^ " That in order to remore a misapprehension whieh i appears to exist, as to the otyeot contemplated by tbe , society, we leei n necessary to declare that it is with a . desire to procure a united meeting of the Imperial 1 Parliament in Dublin, for general purpose* ; but that t the object of tbia society ia to procure an arrangement j by which the Imperial Parliament should hold its sittings in Dublin, during such convenient portions of 1 eaoh year, as may be sufficient for the transaction of I business more particularly relating to Irish affairs." ( On Friday last, Lord and Lady John Russell, arrived r at Kingstown; a large crowd of persons were waiting on t the pier, anxious to behold the arrival of his lordship. ; 1 he Lord Mayor, George Hoe, James Magee, and James f l'im, Esquires, went on board, and received his lord- ? ship; when his lordship landed, he was saluted by ? loud cheers. On Monday he visited a family estate, t at Ardrallagh, in the county of Meath; he subsequently y visited the Royal Irish Academy, Trinity College, and t the National Education Office, in Marlborough street. t Mr. John O'Counell has addressed a letter to the people of Ireland, the object of whlob is to try and p recommence the old system of humbug. He makes an a appeal In the following manner If within the * course of the present month you oannot come to the {. rescue, it will inevitably be necessary to advertise and i dispose of, as best can be done, the scenes of our ? former labors. Whatever may be the produce of the p <ale, the yet remaining liabilities of the Association j, hall be first discharged, and then, if any surplus shall remain, it shall first be vested in such members of the a :ommittee as may choose to undortake the trust for p ;he use and benefit of the Association, when the latter j| resumes its sittings." He concludes by saying You a ran prevent the necessity 1 announce if you be so p minded : a small, if regular and constant effort, would p ae sufficient." f, On Tuesday last, a Mr. Deasley. of the county of j, I'ipperary, who had formed an Agricultural Associa- t Jon, comprising seventeen parishes, waited upon Lord p lohn Russell, for the purpose of laying before him a c )lan for converting poor rate into capital, (by menns a >f land improvement.) and requesting some advance B 'rem the public funds, for the purpose of carrying out p1 the experiment in his own locality ; Lord John was, ? lowever, busy, but Mr. Beasley had an interview with a Lord Clarendon Having explained his views, he pre- ? icnted bis Exoelleucy with the details of his plans. r lis Excellency, however, did not hold out any hope of q i loan or advance; he said, the state of the publio c evenue precluded that mode of proceeding, and com- f, nented very strongly on the waste, plunder, robbing, p iod misapplication of public money, recently, in (reand.

To give you an idea of the value of Irish railways, at he last half yearly meeting of the Dublin and Drog>eda Railway Company, it appeared that the reoeipts S if the company are barely sufficient to pay five per ^ sent per annum on the capital; and that, although a jortion of the expenses are charged to the account of spitBl. the amount left produced only 10s. per cent, pi in the half year. tl Sam Oray, of Orange notoriety, died at Ballebay on .he 2nd inst.

' Gcn.|Mecegaldo, Commander of the National Guards c of \ enioe.Knvoy in Paris, hasjustleft the city, for Lon- r don. During bis residence here, he has had repeated 8 Interviews with Lord Norraanby and Gen. Cavaignac, r assuring them of the resolution of the Venetians to t resist to the utmost; he has made known the gravity J of the dangers which now threaten them. General ( Cavaignao replied to him," that France had offered its f mediation to Austria, upon the basis of the freedom of the Italian States, and that he hoped this mediation . would not be rejected?in case it was. then would come | t war; that it was not he alone would resolve upon war, i ! but that it would be declared by a decree of the Na- , tional Assembly; that he might write to his co-pa- | 1 triots to hold out to the utmost, and give his word the j greatest publicity.'' Afttr this bold and frank response, j ' and a suitable expression of g atitude to Franoe, the I i Envoy posted Immediately for London. The Frenoh | 1 ?ress, of to-day, confirm this important and, if | 1 rue. decisive fact, in the great political Euro- j 1 pean drama. The French press, of to day, say that the ! 1 Austrian minister hu given assurance that, if a treaty j is not made with Charles Albert, the mediation will be accepted ; but this needs confirmation. A day or j two since, I passed through the Barriere Franklin, to 1 isit the magnificent foundation laid by Napoleon for | the palace of the King of Rome, and also the summer | residence of the philosopher and American statesman for whom the barrier is named. Franklin used to reside in Passy daring the summer months, situated upon the north side or the Seine, and overlooking, in its southern aspect, that beautifhl and meandering river. The grand gate and passage of the barrier, bearing bis name, is ^at the southern extremity of Paris, and upon the bank of the riser, in the dtreot route fiom Paris to Patsy, up and down the north bank of the riser. The French so muoh honored the name, that they gave this grand passage way the name of Franklin ; and, next to Washington, I think hie name Is more generally esteemed in France than that of any other of their distinguished ootemporarles. More eminent as a philosopher than a statesman even, his drab coat did not diminish the lustre of his name, nor lessen the dignity of his diplomatic character, even in Paris ; ner did the/rey frock coat of Napoleon, which will lire as long as the earth bears his monuments and his statues.

The Bonne ami Money Market. he operations of the settlement f?r August, affectas have been the (juotations during the month, by eventualities of a pacific mediation, or an arined TTcntion in Italy, have occasioned much activity animation at the Bourse during the past week. I informed you iu my last despatch, the rise conled until Tuesday, but from that day until the end le month a fall declared itself and was conti nued unaturdayat the settlement, when a decided advance aife-ted itself. The slow progress of the mediation taly, the hesitation of Austria, the insignificance ,he results as yet obtained, the tear that the Krench eminent would find itself compelled to interfere by is In the peninsula war; were the principal, but, not only reasons for the fall, which amounted to three ncs in the five-, and two franes on the threes.

The capitalists, sure of being : to wait the course of events, do not hesitate to -, because, at present prices, stock yields nearly S cent.; the speculators, on the contrary, obliged to e advantego of the circumstances of the moment, ke a bold | ush for a full endeavor to proUt by chances of the Italian <{Uestion, reserving to therare?, on the first favorable news, the re-purchase of ck sold, with all the promptitude that marks operaus for time. Wo may venture to predict, that uni some very unforeseen circumstances should occurcapitalists will oompel the speculators to suocumb, 1 that ultimately an amnlloration of public credit 1 ensue from this uue<iual and, certainly, temporary Liggle. The price of the loan approaches that of the tire's ; but a ithout actually reaching It. At this e the discounts on stock, and the state of credit in market, prevent speculators srom bunging to their 1 relative value the old fives and the loan. Rallis hare been pretty firm during the week ; but the ilrrs are somewhat alarmed, and the public not ch disposed to invest in this description of security, n a conviction that sooner or later the government i take them all into their own hands.

It tated that the direction has come to the determinaq of partially resuming cash payments, by paying s hall of the sums receivable at the bank in oash. other respects, there is little worthy of observation, re is no revival of trade of uny moment as yet, tha y sales of any extent that have been made having n some silks from Lyons and St. Ktienne. under n nt of bounties by the government, to encourage t branch of trade. Money Is still extremely scarce 1 although confidence may be said to be in some t restored, yet the conviotlun that all Is not yet :led, i nd the apprehension of some new aud forlabia outbreak. Justified by the attitude of the gonment, and the continuation of the state of .siege, I paralyze all business. in Wednesday, the speech of the Hueen of Kngd, on proroguing tha Parliament, was published at Bourse; and Its pacific tendency, and the hopes d out In it of a settlement of the Itaiisu question bout war, produced a very favorable impression, is was further increased by a report that offers had n received from Kngland. iroin some highly lnfluial houses, of a loau to France, and to take all the ires of the Lyons Railway that should be abandonby the shareholders.
