Intervention of France In the Affairs of Rome. In the British House of Lords, on the 19th ult:? Lord Beaumont said ho wished to put a question to ^^fthe noble marquis, relative to the nature of the French ^^Bxpeditlon to Central Italy. It was not his intention o say one word now ns to the policy of such a measure; ^Kut he must say, if the expedition were for the purpose Hf putting down a republic in Home, it was certainly ^^Eather a strange thing that one of the first steps taken ^Hby the democratic republic in France should be to put ^Hduwn a foreign republic, which was only imitating its ^ example, and to restore a monarchy, perhaps the most ^^|absolute in the world. (Hear. hear). It would be a ^Hstrange thing if the head of the Roman Catholic Church ^Hahould owo his restoration to temporal power to the ^Hhands of the French republic. After what had fallen ^Hfrom the noble marquis respecting Sicily, he was only ^Hanxious to ask whether the government of this coun^Htry had taken any part, either in the way of instiga^Hting, or in the way of concurring with the French go^HTernment in the step which the latter had taken.? Alter wo had ceascd to interfere in Sicily, where Hscenes of butchery unheard of in civilised warfare had taken place, and after we had abandoned that island H to the arbitrary control of u most unchristian monarch, Hit would be strangu indeed if we should concur with France in this interference for the restoration of the Pope. H The Marquis of Lajtspowwe?I have no hesitation in H telling my noble friend that the oecurrence to which he has relerred, tho Intended expedition by the French to H Italy, is perfecly corrcct. But 1 may say that expedition has not been instigated nor suggested by the go H vernment of this country, and that it has not been tho subject of any agreement or negotiation. At the same I time, I must say that intimation of that intention has H been received, but I am not prepared to say that the objects of the expedition, as far as I am acquainted with them, are of a nature that this country would disapprove of. At the same time I think it right, after what has fallen from the noble lord on another subject, I to express a hope that the noble lord will not consider me as in any degree acquiescing in his statement, that with respect to another country in Italy unfortunately engaged in war, under circumstances between which and those which distinguished the French expedition there is not the slightest analogy, we hare receded H from the policy we nave heretofore adopted, or in any H sense abandoned any assurance we have given. The Manifesto of M. Gulzot. H The following address from M. Guisot to the eleotors of Calvados, is published in the Paris papers ot to-day, I ander the title of M. OUIZOT TO HIS FRIENDS. Bromptox, April 0,1840. My Mends express to me their iutentiou of bringing me forward as a candidate at the next election, and ask my own opinion on the subject. I consider it an honor to have such a question addressed to me. 1 have only one way of replying thereto:?I will say. without re serve, what, in my opinion, ought to be done now by sensible and honest men, and what are my personal sen timents. When well instructed as to what I thiuk, my B Mends will do what may seem to them good for our country. Only one thing is now important to France?that the party 01 oruer snail ue orgauizeu. urgamieu, it win Lave an iiiimenno deal to do; no one can way all that it may have to do; but what it lias to do now is to organise itself Everybody says that, but I fear that many Xamong those who say it are far from seeing what tho words mean and command. Order is much more seriously attacked than is thought, and much less defended than it ought to be; attacked to its foundations, incessantly, everywhere, in the government, in society, at the family hearth, in the secret of the heart of man, by revolutionists passionate, unbridled, indefatigablu, Insatiable; defended only on the surface at the last moment, on the point on which the evil breaks out, by bonest men full of doubt, who know how to die that society itself may not die, but who close the eyes and go to sleep the moment it becomes not absolutely impossible to believe that society may live. That is a great deal too little: against such perils order should nave other than such victories. The public, the true public, the whole people, with their great instinct, know this, and act accordingly. Why did they not elect General Cavaignac President? General Cavaignac had gained the most decisive battle for the advantage of order; General Cavaignac is an honorable man; he was the representative and chief of force?of force legitimately victorious. But by the acts, either of his friends or of himself, Gvncrul Cavaignac was not. In the eye* of the people, tho representative of order, the chief of the party of order. Not ungrateful, but clear seeiug. the people turned away from lilm, and ranged themselves m matte around a name which bad remained In their memory as the symbol of order and a strong government after revolutions. May the i-ame Instinct that guided the people in the election of the President. animate and guido them In the election of the Assembly. They have raised the flag of order; let them send around it an army, that is to Kay. a great political party, capable of obtaining a definitive victory. The work is. I kuow, infinitely more difficult, but it must be accomplished, for the salvation of society Is at that price. I should offend I'rovidence if I thought that society be destiued to perish. The el< ments of the party of order exist in France. " Three serious governments which lasted?the Consulate. which soon became the Umpire; the Restoration, and the Monarchy of 18J0?left them to the country. Kither from the want of prudence, or force, or duration, the republic thus far does not count among the serious Covvruiiienis of France of the last sixty years Franco as been convulsed or oppressed, never regularly and efficaciously governed by the republic. It Is a form of government, which, put to the proof lia* not yet shown its excellence (fail trt j/remvj) among lis. I'nder very different conditions, the consulate and the empire, the restoration and the monarchy of 18.'i0, were governun nts essentially devoted to order, bound to reestablish it ?r defend it again-t ardent enemies. By thee 'tiles they profess, by the habits they have contracted, by the struggles they have supported, the partisans of those governments, the men formed In their cause and under their influence, are naturally men of order, engaged in the service of the irreat social Interests which order protects, and which in their turn protect it When order is in peril, tho alliance of these men Is natural. At present it. is necessary, absolutely necessary Divided and reduced each to its own forces. neither of tho different parties which are of the natural elements of the party of order i.< ahlu to conquer alone the enemies of order, and to found its government.

United. they will have a g?od deal to do to conquer : disunited, thep will inevitably be conquered. And it in not appearunce?.words of union which can suffice. It is not sufficient to give to the necessity of the conccrt between all the men of order a certain exterior satisfaction. and then to continue, under cover of this great peace all dissensions and all wars, great or little. That the uuion of parties and of the men of order may bear its fruit*, it must be complete. Restricted or mutilated, it would be stricken with weakness or disrepute. But is this union, which is fso necessary. and which can only be efficacious if it be serious and sincere, possible ? Yes. certainly, provided that it only be required to do at present what tho present requires. No falso appearance; no deceitful reticence. There is no sadder suectacle, no worse policy, than parties embarrassed by themselves, and accepting, or seemiug to accept, name* which are not their names, and a llag which is uotthrir flag Little matters it that no one is deceived, and that falsehood in only a conventional veil, which covers the truth without hiding it. The great public is there, which docs not enter into such conventions, and which despises the falsehood the more the falsehood is vain. Whether they come from the empire, or the restoration, or the monarchy of 1830, let the men of order, in drawing together, not impose on each other such a falsity; let them mutually give and take themselves for what they really owe. Their union will be so much the more sure, the more it is evidently the result of their decided determination, without weakness or dissimulation. And let not the different elements of the party of order attempt to tie each other down in advance and from the present, on the great questions of the future. It is an immense fault, aud always productive of fatal consequences, to tako up such questions too soon, and to attempt to resolve them by a previous understanding, when their solution is not an actual necessity. Necessity, even when present and pressing, does not always suffice to make parties prudent; but it alone has a chance of succeeding in so doing. And the more tho questions are difficult, tho more important is It only to take them up ut that supreme hour in which events speak high and command prudence, under the penalty of cuuslug folly to be very dearly paid. Aud let there be no retrospective policy, for it would have the effect of renewing old struggles among the men of order. No anticipated policy?it would cause struggles to arise which nothing now renders inevitable, and would render impossible reconcilia lions which are now necessary, t jood sense is the same in the highest and most modest affairs of life. To every day its work. The defence of society, attacked in all parts, is the task of to-day. When the men of order shall have acted together to accomplish it, they will assuredly be better prepared, aud more inclined to accomplish together the rc-constructlon of the government of the country, when the day for that undertaking shall come. Truth for the present?liberty for the future; on those two conditions the serious union of all the elements of the party of order is possible. Let that union be established; by it the present will be saved, and we shall do what the future will do?that part, at least, which God leaves to men In the future. To say what dominant and constant idea should, in my opinion, preside over tho conduct of all tho men of order is the elections for the next Assembly, is to say how 1 should act myself, if 1 were called on to sit there. My past, besides, imposes on me peculiar duties, which I am desirous to allude to. I labored long to found tho constitutional monarchy. I long upheld and practised a policy which was strongly opposed. I do not now regret having been of opinion. from 1814. to 1848, that tho constitutional monarchy was the government best adapted to France. And as to tho policy which I followed, I certainly have not the pretension not to have committed faults in carrying it out?to have never done but what it wan right to do, and to have constantly done all that was requisite; but I am perfectly convinced that the policy in question was an essentially sound one?advantageous alike for liberty as for srder; for pr?gre*s ns for nocurity; for the greatness of my country abroad as for its prosperity at homo. My conviction and my honor alike command me to remain faithful to it, whether it be victorious or vanquished. 1 do not overlook, and 1 desire that my friends should not overlook, the difficulties which may result from this situation. Hecent lacts, 01 great importance, una evident lo all. invite at the mine time their attention. The events which succeed each other in so rapid and striking a manner in France, und throughout Kurope, prove every day that there is but one prudent, honorable. and practicable policy. Without payiny attention to proper names and dates, they every day show that tbe defenders of that policy were right, and they put down those who oppose it. Beyond any doubt it may hold its head high in the midst of events now accomj plishing. For a period of four-and-thirty years, through the trials of u continual struggle, and amidst the cries of a revolution, France enjoyed all the blossings of a free and well-regulated society. Her activity and her prosperity went developing themselves widely in every direction by a rapid and steady progress. Security reigned alike in town and country. Civilization covered the soil with its works, and filled men's minds with the hopes which it generated. Without noise, without display, with peace maintained and right respected, French society beheld its consideration and its influence everywhere extended in tbe society of Kurope. All these blessings appeared full of promise for the future; whnn, all at onee?in a day, in a single hour?they disappeared, as tbe most blooming harvests vanish under tire or tempest. France did not abandon herself in this disaster?she struggled, and struggles still to escape from it. She cannot, certainly, be accused of manifesting in her efforts too much ambition or exigence, since she accepts things which are inlluitely displeasing to her, reducing to the strictest necessaries her pretensions and her hopes of the experiments which are being effected before us. On the other side, the men engaged at present in public affairs do not turn a deaf ear to this great voice of events. However different may be their dispositions, the same light strikes their eyes?however distant may be their startingpoints, they are all drawn to the same ground. The only policy that is practicable at present is also becoming tho only one practised. Thanks to that superior and irresistible pressure, under that hand of Uod which commands all events, to proclaim the same truth, and all men to comprehend it. the barriers fall without a finger being laid upon them, and approximations are being operated, whether they be sought tor or neglected, whether men speak or are silent. Shame on those who would now remain obstinately plunged in the slough of old differences or resentments ! At the present time it is an imperative duty for every man of worth and sense to trample under foot every petty feeling of sell-love, or of sclf-satisiaction, or of annoyance?to fling aside every recriminatiou. whether proceeding from pride or rancour?and to (think only of his country, and of the peril in which it is placed. Which of us can ponder on tbe position of his country ? Not now is it for the determined advancement of her liberties, or for the accomplishment of her designs in the world, or for her grandeur, or her glory, or for her future position, that France watches and coinbats so strenuously ; but for the most elementary interests of society?for property, for family-ties, for quiet, for daily existence. And that even that. end. modest as it is. France does not attain in a certain and complete manner?she succeeds in preventing herself from being precipitated into the abyss, but she does not succeed in extricating herself out of it. Who can misapprehend the meaning of such a spectacle ? A stable government, a government which contains within itself pledges of stability and which spreads the conviction of that sentiment abroad, is the cry which issues from these facts. There is nothing but a stable government that can extricate France from the abyss ; i,nd no government can become stable unless all the natural elements of the party of order shall join to support it. The three great governments which existed and have lallen in France during the last sixty years have left after them, by the side of the Hepublic, three hopes, or, shall I say, three perspectives of government? There lies the difficulty ; and it is for France herself to remove it. for she alone can do so. At her voice, and under her impulse, let one great party of order be formed, which shall not seek out, exclusively, or reject absolutely, any of the solutions of the problem that are possible, but which shall be decided to solve it, and to remain firmly vnitcd for that purpose for without a firm union the problem cannot be solved. Already that, party is mak iug its appearance. Let it strengthen itself; let it increase : let the elections send It powerful to the approaching Assembly. No one can say what th? future will bring about?perhaps things which are now re purlieu inipossinic. out. nowfrrr inm may dp, 11 wiu great and natural party of order be thore united, it will be the common safety. I have now paid what I think My friends at present know what ideas would regulate my conduct; it is for them to judge of what nature should bo that which would suit thcmwlTCi. If they believe that my presence in the neit Assembly will b? useful to the common <ause. I am at their service. I.ot them decide the matter in the sole interest of the country?the sole law to us all. Ol/IZOT. Tlte Hnitgnrlnn War. Ihencwo from Hungary continues unfavorable for the imperial army.

Marmora entered the city after the surrender of the rebels; order has been re-established, and the trude of revolution has been put u stop to for loinc time to come. The bombardment which took place has not done much injury. The Dorian palace is only slightly damaged, and the presence o{ the foreign vessels has effectually protected the property of the merchants. The Canadian Trouble* In Englnud. [From the London Chronicle, April 'JO.) When we first announced the Canadian Indemnity bill, and deprecated its probable consequences, we were twitted with having discovered a mare's nest. It was said to be nothing more than the revival of a former measure, not at all favorable to rebels, nor 19 the slightest degree calculated to alienate the affections of truehearted colonists from the crown. Let those who held this language read the extracts front American and Canadian papers which we reprint to-day. and declare candidly whether we were mistaken?whether what they mistook for a summer cloud, or a passing shower, has not turned out the forerunner of a hurricane. It has proved vain to say. that there was 110 intention to 1 grant money to disaffected persons. Ithas proved vain to say. thut the Governor was anxious to hold the scales even, and abide by the strictest rules of impartiality. It , has been useless to explain that tho measure boro no reference to races, and that it was a matter of supreme indif- | ference to Earl Grey, or the Karl of Elgin, whether the French or the Anglo-Saxons maintained or retained the supremacy. The Anglo-Saxons knew better; they distrusted the allies of their natural and avowed ad- ' versaries; they were guided, as loyalists, by their instinctive repugnance to disloyalty: and the result is a ' dogged, determined, defying, reckless, almost rebellious, opposition to the indemnity. You may pass this odious tax. is the language of not a few amongst them, but so long as there is an axe or a : ritle on tho frontier, and Saxon hands to wield them, * not a sixpence shall be paid. You may pass it, but be- f ware?incrdit ptr ignrs?before the royal assent can be ! notified on this side of the Atlantic, Lower and Upper r Canada may be numbered amongst the United States J of North America, and the Stars and Stripes may have 1 replaced the Lion and Unicorn in Quebec. We will not ' submit to the insult, we will net bow to the humllia- 1 tion; our honor as Englishmen, as men of your own ' blood, faith, and country, is at stake; and come what 1 come may, we will not be robbed of it by the mistaken candor of conservatives or the pseudo-liberality of whigs. " The undercurrent leaning of tho Adglo-Saxons here towards an annexation with their brethren of the United States, unjustly and untruly attributed to . them by Lord Durham in his tinie,ast.uc us the Gospel now." Such lathe deliberate assertion of a writer iu one of their leading newspapers, and we trace in all of them abundant indications of its truth. " Our good, loyal lellow citizens (remarks auother) are cogitating, ruminating, shivering, growling, grinning, and every thing but barking. They say tney must have annexation, for they cannot and will not do without it. One old tory. we heard, the other day, who, after coming home full of indignation, d?d the Queen and Lafontaine, and swore he could stand it no longer." Tho taid old tory gave, it must be owned, one very good reason, assuming his calculations to be correct, for he computed that annexation would add tenfold to the value of his land. The opposition is not confined to words. The leading supporters of the ministerial measure have been hung in effigy,and the utmost exertions of an armed force have been found inadequate to suppress the rudest ebullitions of popular feeling. When the mob act upon purely mob impulses, their violence may excite only ? transitory alarm ; but a popular movement must be deemed of the highest importance, when it is the outward and visible sign of incipient agitation and deeply-rooted discontent in the community. We would fain Indulge in another reflection. It is both unwise and ungenerous to trust to the unaided operation tlon that a royalist can never become a republican, whatever pressure may be put upon bim, or to whatever temptation lie may be exposed. Let every philosophic observer reflect, bow tho Roman Catholics of Ireland have gradually been alienated from that respect for order, and almost servile obedience to authority, which religious teachers of the same persuasion have inculcated on their flocks in every other quarter of the world in all ages. Men are the slaves of circumstances; and we very much fear. that, when the Canadians are compelled to make their choice between Great Britain and tbe United States, they arc much more likely to be influenced by resentment, wounded self-love, and selfinterest, than by historical reminiscences, country, consanguinity, or the more exalted motives of puro patriotism. We need hardly say that th? Americans are evidently on tho look out, and prepared to profit by the opportunity. They know full well that they could not forcibly dispossess us of the Canada*, but they may fan the fire of rebellion by their suggestions, and enforce the policy of annexation by their arguments "If the Canadians (suggests the York Herald) do not get up a respectable revolution in less than nine months, we shall consider them a noisy, empty set of fellows, who deserve no encouragement at all from this side of the border." The .American Gazelle, with less appearance of mischievous intention and infinitely more point and argument, comments upon the conduct of the Canadian government as "the strangest example ?f infatuation aud want of principle?for we bold ingratitude, even in gwvernments. to be want of principle?that has occurred in modern times. A new political morality is to be introduced into the world. England improves upon the Christian precept?she not only forgives her enemies, but she abandons and outrages her friends * * * The Governor-General of Canada has nww in bis bands, awaiting the decision of his wisdom?or his folly?a far more momentous issue than that of a mere rebel compensation question, or even a question of rebellion and revolution in British America." By a strange coincidence, Lord Klgln has resorted to the same expedient as Harley in 1711. He has added twelve members to the I pper Mouse. We are not informed whether they were asked by any Canadian Wharton if they voted by their foreman; but even with this reinforcement, the Governor's majority only amounted to four. In this state of things, it is said, he has suspended his assent until her Majesty's pleasure shall be made known. In other words. hn trembles at the responsibility imposed upou him. and waits to hear whether the English t abinet will confirm tbe rumored decision of fcurl Grey. Judging from recent specimens of vacillation, we should inter that they will not. Lord John KusseU's nerves are by no means what they were when Sydney Smith described him as prepared, at a moment's warning, to take the command of the Chunnel fleet, or perform an operatiou for the stone; and Chatham himself would hesitate, when a single falsa step might dismember the empire, and permanently alienate the most important colonial appendage of the Crown. The Navigation Law* of Great Britain.

(Mr Anderson) would withdraw hi* amendment, and wait for a future opportunity to iutroduco it. Alter u few words l'rom Captain Btticui, Mr. Ani)?h?o?i expressed hin willingness to concur with the feeling of the House, and withdraw hioamundment. The amendment was then withdrawn. Mr. Lamuninn: said that with regard to the two amendment* which the right houorable gentleman the member for tho I'niversity of Oxford (Mr. Gladstone) had upon the paper, he was willing to agree to the first, but that he could not. iu justice to the interest# of the colonies, agree to the second. The first amendment was. in lieu of clause 14. to move t he following : ? ' Provided always aud bo it enacted, that it shall be lawful for her Majesty in Council, upon an addreM, or joint address. an the case may be, from the Legislative Council, or Council aud Assembly, or proper legislative authority, of any British possession. praying her Majesty to authorize the oonveyanei! of goods and passengers from one part of such possession to another part of such possession in other than British ships, to deelare. by Order in Council, that such conveyance shall be authorised accordingly. in such terms und under such conditions hs to her Majesty shall seem good." The other amendment, to which he could not give his sanction, was iu the following terms : ?" And be it cnacted. that upou a like address from the proper legislative authority of any two or more colonies which her Maje?ty in council shall declare to be neighboring colonics tor the purposes of this act. praying her Majesty to place the trade botwetn such colonies upon the footing of a coasting trade. It shall be lawful for her Majesty, by order iu council, to declare that It shall he deemed and taken to be a coasting trade accordingly, for all intents and purposes: Provided, (tlways. that the privileges conferred by this act upon f?*eign ships shall not be diminished by such order in council, unless by regulations which shall be equally applicable to British ships." Mr. Gladstone was understood to express his willinging to consent to the proposition of the right honorable gentleman In answer to a question from J. Kicaiido, Mr. Larouchkhk said, that although it was originally proposed that the bill should come Into operation at the end of throe months, it was now proposed that it should not become law until the 1st of January, 1850. Some verbal amendments were then agreed to, and the report was ordered to be brought up ou Monday. The Dcbti due by Fortlgn States to llrltlnU Subjects. The following circular has been addressed by Viscouut I'almereton to licr MujeHty'g representatives iu foreign States, respecting the debts due by foreigu States to British subjects:? Foreign Office, January, 1840. licr Majesty's government have frequently had ocea?ion to instruct her Majesty's representatives in various foreign State*, to make earnest aud friendly, but not iuthoritative representations in support of the uusatis] lied clunns of British subjects who are holders ot public bonds and money securities of those States. As some misconception apucars to exist in some of hose states with regard to the just right of her .Ma esty's government to interfere authoritatively, if it ihould think It to do so. iu support of those claims, I lavo to inform you. as the representative of her Maosty in one of those states against which British subects have such claims, that it is tor the British govern- ! nent entirely a question of discretion, aud by no ncans a question of international right, whether they 1 diould or should not make thia matter the subject of ' liplomatic. negotiation. If the question Is to be 1 considered simply in its bearing upon international ' right, there can be no doubt whatever, of tho perfect right which the government of every country possesses to take up. as a matter of diplomatic negotiation, any well founded complaint which any of its subjects may prefer agaiust the government of another country, or any wrong which from men torrign government tnose subjects may havn sustain! d ; mid if the government of one country is entilltd to demand redress fur any oiid Individual among its subjects who may huve a junt hut uusatistied pecuniary claim upon the government of another country. Lbe right ho to require redress cannot be diminished merely because the extent of the wrong is increased, md because, instead of there being one individual :laiming a comparatively small sum, there ure a great lumber of individual* to whom a very large amount in lue. It in. therefore, simply a question of discretion with he British government whether this matter should or ihould not be taken up by diplomatic negotiation, and .he decision ?f that question of discretion turns enirely upon British and domestic considerations. 1 It has hitherto been thought by the successive go- , rernnients of (treat Britain undesirable that British j lubjects should invest their capital in loan* To fo- , lign governments. instead of employing it in prolit- , ible undertakings at home ; and with a view to dls- \ -ouriigr haxardous loans to foreign governments who , may be cither unable or unwilling to pay the stipulated | ntercst thereupon, the British government has hi- ( Lherto thought it the liest policy to abstain from taking up. as international questions, the complaints made by liritish subjects against foreign governments which 1 liave tailed to make good their engagements in regard to such pecuniary transactions. For the British government has considered that the MM of imprudent men. who have placed mistaken sonfidence in the good faith of foreign government", sould prove u salutary warning to others, and would prevent any other foreign loans from being raised In jreat Britain except by governments of known good faith and of ascertained solvency. But nevertheless, it might happen that the loss occasioned to British subrets by the non-payment of interest upon loans made by them to foreign governments.might become so great :)iat it would be too high a price for the nation to pay for such a warning as to the future, and in such a state if things it might become the duty of the British gorcrmnent to make these matters the subject of diplomatic negotiation. In any conversation whLrh you may hereafter hold vith the minisik ? upon this subject, you *111 not fail to communicatethem the views which >cr Majesty's government ent>-taln thereupon, as set orth in this despatch I am. fee., (Signed) PALMERSTON.

The question of opening the city gatos at Canton has 1 >ecn the engrossing subject during the month : we beieve tbat nearly all the respectable part of the native < immunity of (anton will be glad to have the matter 1 ettled. as they are getting tired of It. and it is not ar- < ;ued by them now with the same angry feeling as on I ormer occasions. 1 he fear of the Ladrones and of the ' die portion of the working classes seems to be the chief ause of alarm, and not the question of the right of 1 ipt ning the city gates to us. The authorities can and i uunt be mnde to carry out the convention, or the 1 :onsequcnces, indirectly, may be injurious to Briifh interest*, not only at Canton, but at till the other >orts.

The Marriage of Jenny Llnd at Bath, [trout the Bath Looker On ] This event (respecting which there have been so unny conjectures and so many rumors) we are into! med. on the best authority, took pUcu last week; imlwith such privacy was the oeremony conducted, but many of our readers will bo surprised to learn, ihut the inarriaKc of the Swedish nightingale was perIctined. by spu-inl license, on Thursday week, at the residence of the bridegroom's family.

The engagement of Jenny Llnd sith V r Harris has long been publicly announced and mnienti d upon by the dai'y and weekly journals; ind so strict a record has been kept of the movements if the fair cnntatricethnt It is somewhat surprising the inm unccuii nt of hi r marriage should have escaped imr larger l.ondon contemporaries. Such however, Is lie fact. J<nnj l.lnd is married ?married In Uath to i native of Bath; and henceforth, we understand, she sill retire into the privacy of domestic life; she will b< come one of our residents, and will shed over the irele in which she moves, those graces which have made her such an Idol with the public.

Harmony there is of the amplest kind, but generally it has not llie mellowed grandeur suited to the oratorio, whon style it approaches nearest, and of which Mendelssolit was so complete a mnster To the lyrical operatic style it if greatly opposed?having none of those con trasts of light and tdiade, and bnt very few indued ol those melodies which the ear seizes imd the memorj retains Meyerbeer appears hern to have forgotten more than iu any of his more recent works, that tlu rich and the powerful, aid those whose days ur< spent in labors of commerce and ?f urt, do not g< to an opera for fierce excitement, to renev the fatigue of the day, but for repojo of tlu mind l>y change of impression, which nothing drnmatii or musical can afford when It is constantly overstrainei and of lugubrious sameness, and t lie appeal to the ea und the understanding are carried ouby the sheer phy sical lorce of voiccs and instruments. In the choice o " John of Leyden"? a choice clearly dictated by Meyer beer?a greater error has been committed than in th< -election ol Kobwi b DUble," In which the occa sional approach to subjects which all men of good taste not to speak of the religious, repudiate on the stage, if veiled by tho distance and the mingled superstitious ol the medieval period. Whether as a tailor, an enthusiast an usurper of power, or a religionist?the selection ol ''John of Leyden" tor a hero is a most extraordinary thought, and his irreverent doings in his stage character are not likely to please either the Catholic, 01 the Protestant, or the Dissenter ; still more certainly would it be offensive to the Anabaptist, since the stern devotee here lias revels worthy of Julius II., if not of Borgia. The socialists alone will bo perfectly suited by the libretto of this opera ; therefore way I not astonished to see amongst the audiencu Count d'Alton Shee. one of their leaders, the tirst to applaud, the las t to cease You will see that whilst it cannot afford desirable inspiration to the composer, its hero and its plot exclude it from performance in most countries. It is surely not under the dominion ?f the Austrian*. or the Pope, it is not at Vienna or in Italy that it will be performed. The king of I'russia himself. Meyerbeer's royal master and liege lord, will not like the rxamplu of the burning of palaces in religious and political enthusiasm which thin opera affords. As to Kngiand, of course a new libretto must be written, If as it is raid. Madame Viardot is to have leave, on th? 7tli of July, to go over and perform it. I need not say that whatever the defects of the work generally, then are some portions worthy of the palmier day* ?f Muy beer's genius. The two first acts are heavy aud en nuyeum. but the others offer some bright exceptions amongst which I must particularly mention a singulai buffo trio, ofliighly artistic construction, betwixt Oberthai and two Anabaptist preachers, supported by the chorus of Anabaptists, in the third act; and the stanzas sung by the Prophet, with a goblet of wine in his hand, before he accomplishes his destructive purpose ^>u the palace, in the fifth act. There is also an excellent trio in this act betwixt Kidcs (Viardot), the Prophet" (Roger) ami " bertha " (Castellan ) As regards nine tit settle, nothing has been spared, pictorially or [Uherwise Duponcliel, who was the tirst to make vocalists sing a trio 011 horseback, spares nothing for costume aud other theatrical effects of appearance. Nothing is wanting, not even dancing or skating. The dancers were I'lunkett and I'etitpas, and the skaters performed a bulliibilt. The conslaut rehearsals of tho music of this opera, which keeps the voices of the singers perpetually on the stretch, lias so much strained those of the vocalists who perform the principal parts, that It would be unjust to judgu them by the result ol the first night, when some emotion must have added to their fatigue. Castellan, who has a secondary and lesf burtbensome part, written expressly for her alone, canu out witli full effect As further proof of bad taste ir the h rench capital, 1 will only add that besides till: Anabaptist prophet, there has been another hero of tin same kind enacted on the boulevard; whilst even tin martyred Louis XVI. is not respected?Frederic Lc maiter playing this royal personage with every probabli horrible detail, at the Porte St. Martin. The Lutrit Continental IVcwa by Mull. Pa his. Thursday K veiling. April 10, 1840. The Bourse to-day has been much agitated by rumors. It was said that Lord Palinerston had protested tgalnst the French expedition to Civlta Veccliia; that Mazzlni, the Dictator of Koine, had confided to Kersanlie. theFrench red republican. thedefcnceofCivita Vec"hia with instructions to bury himself In tlir ruins rather tbau surrender; that the French government had sent 1 formal prutest against the acceptance of the crown of Ihe German empire by the king of Prussia, and a note to the Diet of Franklort with a cuius belli. These are only a few of the rumors in circulation to *ausu or account for a fall of nearly one franc in the priec of the Hentes. My own opinion is. that the nearer we approach the elections th - greater will be tliu agitation in the money market; for the red republicans tind Socialists finding their hope of success by legal means rapidly less founded, will resort to violence, and great precautions will be necessary to prevent tintulr ; you may judge of the desperation of these men by the manifesto put forth to-day by their central committee, and to which the members of the Mountain have nearly all adhered. The committee refuse to admit any man as a candidate on the red republican and socialist interest who does not pledge himself to advocate all their principles, and. above all. proclaim that the republic?that is the republic as they understand it? is above the right of majorities ; thus repudiating the principle of universal suffrage, and establishing th* right of insurrection by the minority, against the ma juiujr. j um ib HiiiipiwiuiTinrttiiuu ui rmruic, uuu i.tciy man elected to the legislative Assembly muHt pledge himself to respect none of the decisions of the majority against red ropublicnn and socialist principles, and to hold himself ready to take the command of the troops of unarcliy whenever they uiay think fit to attack order and property. A declaration of thin kind i* of a nature to alarm the timid, it will not terrify the rresident of the republic or hid minister*, nor will it terrify the men of action on the good Hide ; but it will have its efTect with the multitude of peaceful ?itizcns, and, until the elections lire over and the nation ran derive confidence from tho lirni attitude of ltd representatives, there will bo jreat agitation. Our account* from Florence in the regular course are sf the 1'ith They confirm the telegraphic despatch published by the French government, with one or two 'xceptions.

This body was almost the first to proclaim the authority of the (irand Duke. Tho reaction origluutcd in a quarrel between the ruffians called the Leghorn volunteers and some of the people. They fired upon each other, and several lives were lost. The people generally then turned out. and becoming suddenly loyal, cut down and burnt the trees of liberty which they had planted, and shouted "Long live Leopold." Tliey would have massacred all the Leghorn volunteer? if the latter had not been saved by tho National (iuard and the troops of the line, wh? had joined the people The volunteers fled from the city on their way to Leg horn, but on their way several were massacred by th? pt ai-ant*. whose indignation against the repuldicaiiM had no longer any bounds. T he letters from Leghorn of the 13tli lead us to expect dreadful scenes. for the republicans there are of the most ferocious character. All the respectable inhabitants who hud the means were flyiug. for part of the Leghorn volunteers had arrived from Florence, iind threatened to massacre all the royalists One ot Ike furls journals of to-day states that the government has received accounts of the quiet return of Leghorn under the sway of the (irand Duke. The Corn Trade of Europe. [From the London Mercantile Gazette, April 20.] A material change has taken place in the tone of the irain trade within the last fortnight. The value of wheat has risen from Us. to 4s. per quarter in most of the principal markets, and the advance in prices of ither articles has be?'n proportionally great. This mprovrinent has not been caused by any decrease in the supplies, or apprehension relative to the future ?s respects the crops in the ground, but must be hholly attributed to political events on the continent Almost Immediately after the receipt of the Intelligence communicating the fact that hostilities Imd been actually commenced between the Danes and lietinans, and that the principal Haltic ports and river Kibe, kc were about to be blockaded, holders of rorn raised their pretensions purely on the assumption tlint tfimnlies from the north of Kurone wool I he interrupted, and might be w holly stopped. In case, therefore, the difficulties arising out of the Schlcswigllolfteln question should be arranged. and shipments rem the Baltic allowed to proceed, tbu upward movenent would unquestionably be die. kod , and the probability is. I hat under such circumstances the late advance would nguin be lost, provided nothiiiR should occur in lie iiiterral to occasion uneasiness in reference to the )? xt harvest The weather has recently been of a very wintry character, bint we do not apprehend any mis hlef fr< 111 the frost, beyond that of retarding vegcta ion. The young barley if ay. perhaps, be somewhat ut up by the hliarp winds, but wheat is too hardy n slant to run much risk of being Injured thereby; and 11 one ri speet we may expect benefit to result viz: the icstruction of Insect*. The mildness of the winter hud he efleet of encouraging the ravages of the slug, wireworm &e The evil was partly cheeked by tliu sharp 'light fronts experienced In .March, and the last few lays must liave been very destructive of insect life. I he reports from nil parts of the kingdom continue to peak well of the appearance of the crops and if Mar -hould prove warm, vegetation would soon recover from the chick given by the present low range of temperalure. The advance demanded on all kinds ot grain has bad the cllect of inducing caution on the part of pur' hiifcrK, and within the last few days the transaction* have been less extensive than previously.

The consequence upon our proceedings was duilneas. and , an increased desire to sell.
