BROOKLYN CONCERT 8 A l. < HI n?whit a" i bi*ui<adb*?. Rtw York, Saturday, February '41, 1810. Th? Foreign News. The intelligence which we received from Europe, by telegraph from St. Johns, New Brunswick, which was conveyed to that city by the steamship Europa, is very important and interesting, commercially, financially, and politically. The continuance ot quiet on the Continent, has, it appears, exerted a very beneficial influence on the state of trade in that part of the world. The demand for cotton in England and other countries was brisk, and quotations were firm. Frointhe manufacturing districts, we are informed the accounts are decidedly encouraging. Holders of goods are represented as firm in their operations, and sanguine as to a good spring trade. This IB EL nappy tiling lui uu? cuuiiuy, as wen ao jjugland, Business ot all kinds appears to be prospering. These remarks apply with equal force to the giain and flour markets, notwithstanding that the ministry have, through their organ, Lord John Russell, espoused the doctrines of the anti-corn politicians, in keeping that article ol sustenance tree of duty. This will unquestionably be of great advantage to the United States, for it will lemove all the impediments which have heretofore interfered with the agriculturists of the United States, and place thern on an equal footing with those of that country. The financial feature of the ioreign news is not less interesting than the commercial. United States stocks and securities have experienced a further advance, and money was plenty at two per ceut interest. The abundance ot money is, no doubt, the cause of the advance, the rate of interest being, in addition the perfect safety ot American etocks, an inducement tor capitalists to invest in (hem, in preference to the securities of any EuroI>ean government. Heretofore, American stocks have not been thought much of in Europe, in consequence ot a want of knowledge of our federal system of government. European ca nitahtta could not discriminate between the State and national government*, und the consequence was,when that ot Mississippi repudiated her indebtedness and refused to pay, the United States government could not borrow a dollar in Europe, und proposals lor a loan were hawked through the capitals of Europe without a single oHVr being made. That lalse impression has been removed ; and in addition to that, the tact has been demonstrated that the government of this country is the most stable in the world, and our resou cvs are inexhaustible. The consequence, therelore is, that our stocks are eagerly sought as a means of investment ; and we are satisfied that henceforth a great proportion of the capital ol Europe will find its way to this country, and be invested in American securities. In a political point of view the news is exceedingly interesting. A plot, either real or fancied, to overthrow the existing government of France, was recently disclosed; but the government showed euch an imposing and overpowering military force as to put all danger out of sight. In other respects there has been no chaDge or any feature wor thy of comment. England appears to be in a state of transition? M be undergoing a change, slowly and quietly, under the influence of Mr. Cobden and his asso. ciates. Not only have the ministry, through Lord John Russell, declared in favor of tree trade in corn, but the navigation laws are to be modified, and Important retrenchments undertaken in every depurUnmt of the government. If that country proceeds in the woik ol economising and reiormingthe public expenditures and reducing the excessive may escape turmoil and revolution. But the reforms which they make muBt not be nominal? (hey must be real, and appreciable by the masses of the }ie?ple ; otherwise they will be oi no effect. Under the guidance and teaching of Cobden, and the contrast which the United States furnishes, the great body of the people are becoming convinced ?f the necessity of effecting a great and radical change in the public expenditures. To check the vafnvw* wAiild ho fatal t r\ o nu nun'iatrir T t t;au IVI 1UVIIII nvuiu MV imui a**/ ? uiou j . x i might be stifled lor a while by the bayonet, and by a suspension of the habeat coryut? the policy which j>a pursued in Ireland ; but such a system would jroduce its natural results in a short time, and hey could not but be fatal to the government, as il tiow is constructed. The sagacity of the ministry, therefore, is taking the sta-d which they have taken, is apparent. They find that they cannot 'Withstand the pressure from without; that the nterests of the lew must yield to the benefit of the many, who have become uneasy of the yoke so ong and so rigorously ini|>osed on them. From Ireland we have no intelligence of importance, except that the ministry had determined to continue in force the bill suspending the habeat toiyvt for three months after the first of March, the flay on which it was to be restored. Dully was to placed on trial immediately, and the probability is that the next steamer from Liverpool will bring us intelligence of his fate. The continued suspension of the habeat rorput is a most infamous proceeding, and can have no effect but that of still Jui ther irritating and mortifying the Irish people. It is also entirely uncalled tor, as far as we can judge, and cannot be viewed in any other light than an act of despotism. What has become of that gloiie/us constitution, concerning which so xnu< h is prated by the loyal subjects of Queen Victoria I What has become of that "bulwark tf i.Dglish libtny," the habeat corputf As tar as treason is concern d, there is not the slightest probability that any will be committed, or even attempted, by Iiislimen towards the government. They are incapable of doing so, because they are traitors to IV -i fbsehrcs, to their own interests, and their native jand. To suppose that the people of Ireland, who bavt shown themselves to be the abject slaves of the priesthood, could commit treason against the Com mine nt, is absurd. They gave a conclusive denial io tiie assumption, when they allowed the pair.ot Mitchel to be removed lrom their capital, in chain* and fetters, and transported aa a felon to the hulk* of Bermuda. On the whole, the foreign new* t* favorable? politically, financially, and commercially. We do not attach much importance to the rumored attempt at insurrection in Paris j but in the absence of our files, we cannot judge of the state of affairs (here. From what bus come to our knowledge, however, by the outline of the intelligence witich we have received from that quarter by telegraph, we are inclined to thiBk that the republic is getting on very well. One thing is certain, that the longer quiet and order prevail,the better will be the chance of the republic being firmly established. It only requires the people to become inured to the new order of things to make them pleased with it, and determined to maintain it. Mxdical Rkfobm.? In another column will he jound a report of the proceedings at the meeting of the Academy of Medicine, of this city, on Wednesday evening last We would refer our readers, generally, and those among them who ars in any way connected with the medical profession, particularly, to this report, os a matter of considerable interest is discussed in it. It will be seen that a series of resolutions were presented, which, if founded on tact, would ehow a very lamentable eondition of things to exist among the medical colleges of the United States. By these tesolutions, it is stated that the great majority of young men who have the degree of M. 1). conferred on them every year, at these college#, are ignorant and incompetent, and not properly qualified for the arduoua and responsible duties 0| the medical profession; and the proposer of these resolutions stated, in his speech, that "at this present time doctors weie made, not for the benefit of the public or the profession itself, but tor the benefit of the very men who mads them doctors"? meaning, we presume, the professors in the various colleges. The remedy for this state of things, that is proposed in these reso'utions, is a petitioning of the Legislatures of the various States of the Union, to procure the passsge of enactments by which diplomas, from colleges, shall henceforth be regarded simply as academic honors, not conferring the right to practise ; ond that his right to practise shall only be granted by separate and distinct boards of examiners, who are not interestsd in teaching, who are to examine candidates for the doctorate. It seem# to us that theBe accusations?for they can be called by no other name?against the colleges of the the Union, are rather harsh. Let us go a little into detail. Tne requirements for graduation at all the colleges, we believe, are that the candidate shall have studied medicine three years, during that time he must have attended two full courses of lectures, and he must be able to pass a satisfactory examination. He has to pay for the two full courses, and from this source the professors obtain their remuneration for lecturing during the session. For instance, at the colleges in this city, each student pays so much to each professor, f .1 J..'!. ,i... -UI (UC juivurgc VI anciiuiu^ iito uaiijr icumit uming the session; but having paid for two sesions, he is thenceforth entitled to a free admittance tor as many more sessions us he chooses to attend; or if he has attended one Bession at any other recognised college, he can come to New York or Philadelphia, or any other college he pleases, and, alter paying lor one more session, he is entitled to free admission. The principle is, that a medical student need only pay lor two full sets ot tickets; after doing that, the professors make no more out of him; but he must have paid this much before he can be examined for graduation. Previous to being examined, there is what is termed a graduation tee to be paid. It varies in different colleges; in some, it is as low as sixteen dollars; in others, us high as thirty. If the candidate is successful, this amount is retained by the profeesors; it amounts to from $3 to |5 per professor. II the candidate is rejected, the money is retuined to him, and, of course, is so much less in the pockets of the professors. The difference, therefore, it makes to a professor, whether he passes or rejects a candidate, is from $3 to $5, as the fees tor the lectures are not returned under any circumstances, whether the student passes or not. Now, it certainly seems rattier a liart-n ana discourteous imputation to pass on the whole body oi professors in the United States, that, tor the sake ot a paltry sum like $3 or $5, they would be influenced in passing men grossly ignorant and incompetent; and, moreover, we question if it is a fact. And, again, supposing, l or the sake of argument, that the whole body ot professors are so mercenary and avaricious, inasmuch as they are drawn from the foremost ranks ol the profession, where can men be found unprejudiced enough to act as examiners 1 Surely, if professors can be tempted by the shining bribe of a $3 or $5 bill, it will be hard to find unapproachable examiners. Again, another question presents itself, &3 to the ignorance and incsaspetence of the great majority of the young graduates. That quackery and empiricism overrun the land, there is no doubt; every city, town, and hamlet, teems with the advertisements and circulars of empirics of every description. According to their accounts, every disease is curable; cancer and consumption are no more dangerous or fatal than a flea bite; for every ailment they have a cure. These medicines are extensively used; in fact, it is quite probable that more money is expended annually on this class of drugs, than in fees to regularly educated physicians; still this does not prove the incompetency of medical practitioners; it is a system which has gained ground in all countries. Even in England, the land of strict examinations and high medical attainments, patent medicines, as they are termed, flourish us vigorously, if not more so, than here; but still all this affords no ground for condemning, m toto, the country practitioners. In the spaisely settled districts of our Union, who toils hard and laboriously! Who rides miles upon miles at the call of every one, by day and night, for but scanty fees, and those not always paid! Who sacrifices all domestic and social enjoyment, his natural rest, and every comfort! The young practitioner, struggling to get a connection. Who in the city does |the drudgery of the hospital wards ! Who attends the dispensaries, 1 - I- .L - __i auu guro me iuuuub nmuiig wc pour ana unfortunate, secluding himself from ail enjoyments, and devoting his time and talents gratuitously to the Buflering paupers in the alleys and lanes of onr metropolis 1 Who exposes himself daily to the most fatal contagions 1 Who sacrifices his life in the lever wards of Iiellevue Hospital T Who boldly braves the risk of contagion of the dreaded Asiatic cholera ! Who spends months and months, without fee and reward, in lying-in asylums, infirmaries, and other institutions where experience is to be gained, and information attained ! Who struggles on, day by day, on the merebt pittance, hardly earned, and only sustained by the hope or futuie eminence, and a reasonable income wherewith to support himself and family! The youngcity physician ia the man. And yet these are the ones stigmatized as ignorant and incompetent, wanting in the rudiments of education, Arc. Facta do not sustain these accusations. That i there sre ignorant men in the medical profession, no one will deny; but that the great majority of i them are, is untrae. Great is truth, and |it i will prevail, is a saying that holds eminently good in the success ol physicians; if a man has not the tine knowledge in him. he never can succeed in the long run; he must tall before better men; and of ihete better men we think the practising physicians in the United States are composed, we have already extended this article too long. We may have more to say on the subject hereafter. Ttt* SiEAMsiur UuKorA ?This steamship had not arrived whan the Hrruld was sent to press, this rrcrniog.

In fhot, it Is most ditiiculf, In these days of amity, to tell the story of our former wrongs, and not otfend many who dtcllke to hear disagreeable subjects broached; but Mr. Lester has succeeded in this respeot. and no loyal rutjeot of Queen Vietorla eould, with justice, taketilence at anything presented to tha audience in this nlay.

No good oitiren oan see the piece and feel that the author haa been indelioate. or that ha has unnecessarily obtruded rentiments before the publio whloh were better unexpressed. Trus, the auditors are reminded of those days of '76; and why should they not be so reminded of those glorious days? Mr. Lester Is to be congratulated upon the manner in whioh his play is new performed. It was at first a little crude; but the defects were easily discovered, and have been,'for the most part, remedied. The players, too, have beoome more familiar with their parts and the stage business, whioh belongs to them, and the piece altogether is well played. Indeed, the aotors acquitted themselves last night in a manner whioh gave proof of remarkable cere. There is no neoessity to mention Individuals, all performed so well. There seemed to be bat one voice in the front part of the house when the telling lines were read?all was approbation. Among the expressions which brought the house down, wore those of C'olenel Burr (Mr. Shaw) when be says to Lord Teroy, In reply to a message sent by him to Washington, telling him that henceforth there wonld be no mercy snown to mm. " wnat T" says colonel Burr, " mercy for Washington ! He,never an tied it. and , be never will;" and tbe patriotio expression of Oen. I Wcodhull (Mr. Fredericks)?" One generation can af- I lord to die to make all cbelr descendants free"?and in speaking of Washington's prospective fame, bo rape, " When he is called, as be surely will, one day be called, tbe father of his country"? these and similar expressions, were reoeived with the loudest demonstrations of applause. But besides all these popular allusions. Mr. L. has introduced into his Biece some exoellent sentiments, whloh were well used ' they were more studied the world over. For instance. one of tbe leading oharaoters it made to say, " The world would be at peaoe, If those who made the quarrels were the only ones to fight." Kto ?a very truth, if it be a familiar one. ' Kate Woodhull" has now been performed three times, and has been well received. It lias already many friends, and Is probably destined to take Its place among the standard dramas of its kind. We think that on its first withdrawal from tbe stage, tbe author will make some trifling additions and alterations in the stage business; but this will not affect tbe work itself, when viewed as a production of tbe author's talent, for, in this respeet, It already bears inspection. It is a good work, and a few little alterations will make it a capital aoting play. One of the first alterations, it is to be hoped, will be to take that sentinel off the stage, in the last soene of the first act. National Tiikatbe.?There Is the same story here every evening, via.: full housea. immense applause, and continued appreciation of " Mose in California," and"Kosina Meadows." As for Mcae, we quote from tbe National theatre bill;?" As convincing proofs have been received by the manager that all reports elatlvs to California and Its gold mines are anything Iss but humbug, he is determined to send that pepuar individual. Mose. into that resion ever* nivht. until further' notice. or as long as his patrons will stand it '* We do not risk much in predietlng that they will stand It for a long time to oome, as every evening they seem to take it better than before. " RoMna Meadows," too. is a* popular as erer. To night, both these pieces will be played as will also the drama of the " I'rtde of the Market," in which Mr. Chanfrau will play the part of the Chevalier de Bellrieve. There Is no doubt the house will be full-it is so every night. BraTOs's Thiatrk.?a crowded and fashionable audience partook of a rich and varied treat, at this theatre, last evening. The entertainments commenced with the favorite burletta of "Maidens, Beware "?a very wise injunotlon, and one which deserves the most implicit obedience from all concerned. Bachelors, also, wculd do well to " beware," beoause the softer rex are not always true to their resolves ; they are sometimes inconstant, regardless of the mortal anguish they inflict upon the unhappy swain whom they huTe taught to love. In ancient, as well as in modern limes, the constancy of woman was, at least, a debateable question. The prinoe of Roman poets? Yirgil-sptahmg cf woman, says Variant tt mutlbile Scmpt-r Vcrmina. Ev'n now her dread rover ge is on the wins A net! fur woman is a changeful thing. And Byron says I How quick we credit every oath And hear her plight the willing troth j Foully we bote 'twill last for ays, When lo ! she changes in a day. Tfcia record will for ever stand? W oman. thy vows are traced in sand. The part of Rosalie, a French girl, was done by Miss Chapman, with all the animation and faoetiousness which characterise the ladies of "beautiful France." Her conga were given with taste. Mr. Mortimer, as Mr. Henry Hamilton, was very good, although, at times, be reminded us of the trite saying, "as stiff as a poker." This fault is very easy er oorreotion. The new comedy, called the "Fast Mao," followed Mr. Brougham, as Skyrocket Ned, was most exsellent, while the cbaraoter of Mr. Hughes, afterwards Sir Marmaduke Hughes, was played in admirable style by Mr. Lynne. Mrs. Knight, as Miss Kate, bait ved by Ned, deserves honorable mention. Sheplayed with Judgment and feeling, and the eoene between herself and her uucle was a very fine pleca of acting in the cobbler scene, Brougham made eeveral cepital hits. The Indignation of his uncle, when he found that his nephew. (Brougham) had sot up a cobbler's stall next door to his aristocratic mansion, knew no bounds, and created great merriment.

This evening will be played a new eomical original musical extrazsgaaxa, in two aots. entitled "The King of the Peacocks," written by Planehe, and performed in London for a whole season, and now played for the ' first time In Amerioa.

(Laughter on the right; agitation and loud applause on the extreme left, which then arose, with the cry of "Vive la republique !" The Assembly roue at half past seven, in indescribable agitation. On the 2f)th ult. extraordinary precautions had beed adopted for the protection of the National Assembly. The number of troops in its immediate neighborhood was estimated at about 25,000 men. The garrison ot the palace was reinforced, and a battery of artillery placed in front of the edifice, at the entrance of the Pont de la Concierge. The following was published in a part only of our edition yesterday. We therefore report it to-day :? American Securities* London Money Market.

Very large amounts have changed hands?the buyers now being those houses which act as bankers to the continent. The amount on hand ollered. even at 107 i>"i cent, is very limited. Maryland sterling 5 per cents have been sold with remarkable steadiness at prices ruling from 75 to 78 per cent?last quotation was <78 to 80 ner cent. The general opinion is that it wilt be sold at 85, and even then it if low when compared with the income derived from it. Pennsylvania 71 a 75 per cent, remain neglected, and possibly will remain so until utter the decision of the legislature on the subject of the relief notes; but will then be in demand at 80, should the relief notes be redeemed.

The colonial wool sales now going on at the Hall of Commerce have been so ler wtll attended by an unusually large number of buyers from the manufacturing districts, and by a lew also from the continent. The biddings are very brisn at an advance ot id to 2d per pound on the prices realized at the private sales. Both in Glasgow and Staflbrdshire the Iron trade has again improved. All descriptions of metals are in active request, and higher prices are readily paid. Liverpool Provision Market, Feb. 10.?For cured provisions there is still a lair demand, and a good business doing in most articles of the trade. The imports during the past fortnight were, 2.977 pounds and 148 barrels beef; 232 barrels pork; 2 casks of hams; 8hhds. and 009 cask bacon; 1,151 barrels aud 3,315 kegs lard; 308 sacks and 2,510 boxes cheese.

The House bill, giving priority to the widows and orphans of deoeased officers and soldiers, in the settlement of claims arising out of the late war with Mexloe. was also read and considered. Mr. Pikrcs, of Maryland, rose and submitted a few cogent remarks In opposition to this bill In his view It would woik great injustice towards other claimants against the government.

Oar preaeat duty was to give a peaceable govtrament to California, to preaerve the Uvea of good diepoeed residents, and to restrain those who were evil-disposed. We eneald not go beyond this object at present. No xttempt should be made to exaoute the revenue laws. It oould not be done without courts, whioh could only be established under a regular government Any government for tboee territories must be at present substantially military. A bill had come from the House, for extending tbe revenue laws over the territories. The oourse he would reoommecd to the 8enate, would be to resist all tbess amendments to the general appropriation bill, and when tbat bill should be disposed of, to take up tb# eubject of the territories, and aet independently on it. If tbe 8enatn should see lit to adept this oourse when tbe House bill alluded to oame up. be would move to strike out all after tbe eneoting clause, and Insert the preposition bended in by him on Wednesday. Tbe disposition which bad been manifested by the Senate, showed tbat none of these amendments to tbe general appropriation bill were aoceptable. He had avoided, and would avoid all extraneous subjects, and would bring up no suhjeots which wtre calculated to exoite local prejudices He would oppose all movements whioh were calculated to prevent the adoption of a secure system for regulating and preserving peace in the new territories. Mr. Webeter tpoke about fifteen minutes. Mr. Kootx,of Mississippi, followed, In reply t# tbe remarks of tbe Senator from New Jersey.
