The Crop 1, 4rcThe mail which brings you this letter will also bring on the pleasing nud joyful intelligence of the disagreement of Mr. Duffy's jury, aud his release. The Aracican people, 1 uni sure, will hail this news with uiuch atlsfuction, and that Mr. Duffy has ugti'M, for the third hne?alter being tried thrice by a jury of his countrymen?escaped the fungs of the Attorney Oeneral uad is masters, notwithstanding the unconstitutional deision oil his guilt made lately by the Viceroy to the eputation which waited 011 him for the purpose of raying that clemency should be shown to the prisoner fter all the persecution he had sustained. You will ee that six of the jury were for a verdict of acquittal, nd six for u quulilied verdict of guilty. kThls, of ourso, amounts to an acquittal on the charges for hich he was tried. This the goverumeut are wel ware of; for it is stated that the Attorney Oeneral has eccived instructions not to proceed any further. Mr. Dully lias been suffering from indisposition since is release, and is at present on a visit to his brothcri-luw, Dr. Callan, of ilaggot street. It is now contiently hoped that the convicted State prisoners lessrs. O'Brien. Meagher, &c., will not be pressed on ! ?<it of error, but that government will relax a reat deal of that rigor and pe verity Which have chaacterised all their Stute prosecutions. The violent state of excitement which has been prouccd in the minds of the people, consequent on the atc-in-aid scheme, lias greatly subsided; as it is geneilly supposed her Majesty's ministers cannot pass the icasuro into a law, but intend abandoning it, and, in Ij) stead, propose an income tax?which, I need not ell vou, will create as great an uproar, ns poor Paddy onsidcrs lie has enough of taxes already to pay. witliut mulcting liim with more. How the present state f things will end, appears to be a mystery to all; but, ecidedly, Sir Robert Peel's plan appears to give genoal satisfaction. That wily statesman has taken great ains to win the hearts of the Irish, for, no doubt, bis wn purposes. At present, however, no opinion can e well formed on the different proposed measures-no party thinks one way. and another party another, leanwliilc, however, the people arc starving, and destiution prevails to a terrilic extent; but if something Is et soon done, emigration und death will soon dopopuite the land. Dr. Marshall, R. C. Archbishop of Tuam. lias pubshed a letter, detailing the miseries which the people f his diocese are undergoing, and calling upon the ilnistry to resign their trust into the hands of their overeign. llis Grace and Dr. Denrir, R. C. Bishop of iromore und Connor, have been spoken of as sucessors to the late Dr. Crolly in the Primacy; but roort now names Dr. Russell, one of the professors of laynootli College, as the probable new Primate. The ste Dr. Crolly's funeral was attended by several digniaries of the established Church und a numerous ctinuo of udmirers of tho late Archbishop, of all de noai nations. The Commissioners of tho Metropolitan Police, Dubin, have just issued their statistical returns for last ear, an extract or two from which may not bo unnteresting to the majority of your readers. The gross mount taken into custody was 45.234. ol which 20.1122 rere females. Of these there were lit.,131 dismissed by be magistrates.

The exhibition was >n a very large scale, the largest, indeed, oi any which las been hitherto. It is pleusing to state that it is the tpinion of the judges that good breeding and judicious :reatmeut, in most cases, distinguished the different weeds, tho specimens of which displayed tirst rate cx clleucc, and an improvement is discernible since tho wsccding exhibition. By a return of the Irish Board >f Work, the sum applied for by the land proprietors to >e expended under the land improvement act, from 1,029 individuals, is ?3,051,825 10s. 7d.; of these, ,437 applications have been granted, amounting to il, 470,480. It is gratifying in the extreme to learn from accounts eceived that the present crops are better, and display aucb better management than heretofore ; conscpicntly great hopes are entertained of the barrest. as an abundant return would go fur towards estorlng the now exhausted means ot the country. The breadth of potato planted is very great; false acounts have been propagated, stating that the blight tad actually appeared; but it bus since become known bat no foundation whatever existed for the report. Our Parts Correspondence. r.vRis, April 19, 1849. The Bourte and Money Market. Tbo high prices to which the Ave per cents have io rapidly attained, appear to have put a stop to spccuation, for business has been at a complete stand still ;bis week. The bulls have made many attempts to pass >0, but this quotation has only been reached for ac;onnt. Stock thrown on the market has always stopped the ascensional movement, after 89.50. Stock constantly offered, so that speculators were compelled to keep near the cash prices. It is, however, a remarkable fact, that the 5 per cents, after having tried fruitlessly to got beyond r.hould not have pursued a retrograde movement, and that there should have been is much resistance to a decline below 89 as to a rise ibovcit. It follows, hence, that the fluctuations of tho whole week have been confined within these limits, ind that priees have remained constantly looking to a [rcatcr fluctuation, which lias not yet taken place. It ? not, however, probable, that sueh a state of things Will be prolonged long after the end of the month, or It all events beyond the period when the results of the elections will be pretty certainly anticipated. There Is a strong body of bulls, but they cannot find speculators disposed to risk transactions, so that they will find it difficult to maintain prices until the settlement, If stock continue to he offered It is supposed that the holders of stock who have given n general order to sell St 90 francs, would withdraw them if prices rose above 90, with anything like a tendeney to remain stationary. Nothing, then, would prevent forcing up prices; at least, this is the opinion of the hulls, and the principle on which they are acting. The difficulty now, therefore, is to get the control of the market for cash, which is the obstacle to the rise. The fate of the settlement must depend on the issue of the struggle in which the bulls are now engaged with the cash market. The difficulty of dealing with the 6 per cents., from this cause, has driven many speculators into the 3 par cents , the coupon of which will be detached in six weeks, and tho rise would probably have been greater, on this latter stock, hut for the probability of a new emission of 3 per cents, for the indemnity of the colonics. Bank Shares are stationary. Quotations have hut little rhuuged since the last weekly balance sheet, which, however, was not very favorable. Discounts ha've again fallen, and. what is remarkable, is. that the effirreut accounts have also diminished. This is more surprising, since the purtial revival of commerce is now au admitted fact; and, at this moment, there is much activity In rnnuy branches of industry. As to other Securities, there is nothing worthy of note. I send you the prices for tho week . 3 per Cmti. (<pr. Ctt. bpr. Ct. Limn. Bk. Ski.

No definite solution was come to up to the departure of the packet boat. Our correspondent causes us to fear that the part taken by France has not responded to what the l'ope was entitled to expect from the eldest daughter of the church. Ij'ttcrs from Florence of the 10th inst., state that a French steamer from (iaeta had landed the secretary of the French legatiou at Rome at t'ivita Vecchla, and that he had immediately left for the capital. He was said to be the bearer of the ultimatum ot the foreign powers for the re-establishment of the Pope. It appears thut a simultaneous movement lias been arranged between the powers; the French were to occupy Clvita Verchia and Aneona; the Austrians. Ferrara; the Neapolitans, the frontier. On the arrival of the steamer from Gaetu, another steamer was immediately despatched to Toulon, with orders, it was said, to embark the expeditionary force. Clvita Veccliia was bcitnr fortified. Letters from Rome, of the 3d. Mate that a popular demonstration took place that day in favor of Si. Mazzini. in the course of which the general cry was " Long live the Ked Republic !" The Politico of Rome, of the 7th, states that the government of the republic has intercepted some important correspondence coming from Gacta, and directed to Civita Vecehia, discovering the plots for efflrcting the counter-revolution. Several arrests have been made in consequence. A part of the muskets sent by the government have arrived from Franco, to the amount of 9.500. The rest are shortly expected. Venice. In the sitting of the Venetian Assembly of the 2d, the following decree was passed:?" The Assembly of Representatives of the State of Venice, in the name of (iod and the people, unanimously decree as follows:? Venice shall resist the Austrian at every cost. For this purpose 1'resideut Maniu is invested with unlimited powers." The War lit Sicily? Surrender of Catmtla and Syracuse. On the 5th ult., Catania was bombarded by the Neapolitan si|iiadrou. The followiug morning a simultaneous altuek was inado by sea and land. The Swiss, to tlic number of 2.MJO. led the van. and were supported by two regiments of cavalry, and followed by an army of 16.000. with forty pieces of cannon. After a brief but obstinate resistance, the (atanose were overpowered, and the troops of Ferdinand entered the eity, which then became a real field of battle As the troops advanced, the resistance became more obstinate. The assailants were fired on from windows, house-tops, and barrleades. On the following morning, the greater part of the principal inhabitants and the garrison, abandoned the eity and lied to the mouutains. Kilangieri has given up the city to sack and fire. The soldiers were prowling about, plundering houses, violating women, and stabbing all who oppose them. Immediately the Neapolitan forces eauie in sight of Syracuse, the inhabitants opened tile gates, rang the bells, and shouted ' Viva Ferdinando!" pulled down the Sicilian color, and expressed an entire submission. Conditions will again be ofTered to the provisional government, and if rejected, Talcrmo will be plundered and burned. Tlic Reaction at Florence.

The last news from Hungary is to the effect that matters remain just as they were before. The Hungarian army have taken up positions on the Rakosh plain, under the walls of Teeth, and offered battle to the Austrian s, who stand prepared to defend their possession of the Hungarian capital. Prince Windischgratz, warned by his late mishaps, has declined accepting the battle, and it is sincerely hoped at Vienna that be will escape being forced to enter into an engagement. The left wing of his army, under special command, stands at Waitzen ; the centre, under General fichliek. is at Cziukota, a village on the road from Pesth to Oodollo; and the right wing, under Baron Jellaehich, extends across the railroad line towards Albert! and Czegled. The heroio Ban was at one time given up as lost, and his reappearance bus caused great joy at head quarters. The Magyars have again taken Saint Tomas. which wa= last year so obstinately defended by the Servians. The Servian Patriarch has been Icrced to fly from Beeskcrek to Tunesora. The command of the besieging army of Comoro, which lias lately been in a state of mutiny, us most troops aro when unsuccessful, has been entrusted to General Wohlgemuth. The Hrrslau Zeitunf gives the following connected account of the late movements of the Austrian and Hungariun armies, it appears that the Imperial army, having received considerable reinforcements from Austria Proper, took up its position eastward from Pesth, extending from Waitzen and Godollo to Hatrnw and Czcgled. The left wing was commanded by General Sclilick, who took up his quarters at Waitzen, while the bulk of the army stood ut Hatraw. commanded by Windiscbgratz. and the right wing, under Baron Jeflachich, occupied Ciegled and the environs of that plaee. The Magyar army, commanded by General Dombinski, bad crossed the river Theiss, and advanced to within nine miles from Pesth. Dcmbinski first engaged the Bnn of Croatia at Czcgled, and enticed him(from his post by the retreat of a lesser number of troops than the Ban bad, and induced him to follow the flying Hungarians deeper into the country than he ought to have done. Baron Jellaehich was thus cut off from the army of Prince Windlschgratz. and the only tbingwhich he now can do is to proceed further to the south to assist the Servians. On the 4th of April the Hungarians made a simultaneous attack upon the Austrian headquarters at Hatraw. and upon the left wing under General Sehlick. The two armies tried their strength against each other in a pitched battle, and the combat lasted the whole day. The Austrian centre was pressed back to the very walls of Pesth. As for the left wing of their army, there are no positive accounts of how they fared, but it is not unlikely that they, too. shared the fate of Baron Jellaehich?that they were dcludod by a retreat of their enemies and cut off. The hopes which Prince Windischgratz lias of them cannot be very sanguine, for the preparations which were inakiog at I'esth on the 5th and 6th instant, show that no less than a general retreat to the right bank of the Danube is in conti mplatiou. The Prince's orders to fortify the city of Budu ngainst an attack from Pesth, are peremptory. The houses next the river and near the suspension bridge are beiug evacuated by the inhabitants and occupied by soldiers ; the windows of these bouses have barricades of sand-sacks ; the steamers are constantly kept with their steam up. so ttiat ttiey may be ready to start at am<>nicnt?* ubtice; anda number of wagons laden with military stores and wounded soldiers are continually crossing thu suspension bridge. Tlie Viennese are at present occupied by a rumor, and to all appearance a well founded one, of Count Studion, one of the first men of the Austrian cabinet, having tendered his resignation. This step of the noble Count was, it is stated, caused by his disgust at tbo manner in which the Hungarian affairs are managed. In proportion as the dangers of the Hungarian war bcromo more imminent, does public and official opinion in Austria condemn the policy which entrusted tbo command of the ariny to Prim e Windischgratz, nnd which, in spite of his reverses, continues to uphold him in his position. Kossuth is with the Mngvar forces. All accounts Agree in averting that the Magyar troop* are very numerous. well armed and accoutred, and that they fight like fanatics We have since received advices that Trince Windischgratz has resigned the supreme command in Hungary. and General Wclden has succeeded him. We have also received Vienna advices of the 15th tilt., affording positive information of the occupation of the important position of Waitzcn by the Hungarians. The details of this action, as given by the German papers, are to the effect, tbat Prince Windischgratz, at the head of his best regiments, opposed the progress of the Hungarians in the direction of Comorn. and that lie Vas backed by the corps of Got/, and Jablonowski. A fierce engagement ensued, in which the superior tactics of the Magyars proved irresistible, General (Jot 7. and many of his officers fell white fighting in the streets of the city of Waitzen. The imperial troops were driven back and partly routed. The siege of Comorn had been stopped in consequence, and part of tho imperial army besieging tbat fortress has marched to Y\ aitzen to the rescue of General Itamberg. who still attempts to stop the progress of the Magyars from Waitzen to Comorn 1 he garrison of that fortress lias, meanwhile, made a sally upon the remaining Austrians, and carried off part of their heavy artillery Such are the statements of tho Austrian press. Bnd of the correrpondents of the German papers. If we are to believe thtm. there I* nothing to prevent the Hungarian general (Jeorgey. from communicating with the garrison of Comorn; and, If the rumor prove true, of General Dembinski having crossed the Danube, ami led his troops to Y\ cisfctibtirg nothing is left to the imperialists but to retire to haab for neither Pestli nor lluda ran be held against a superior force.

The plenipotentiaries of twenty-eight (iormutt govennients agreed on and signed a reply to the rrussian note of the 4th of April, by w hich they und the govern- J moots tbey represent assent to an unconditional uc- . ceptance of the constitution of the German empire as voted by the parliament, and to the hereditary suprentacy being conferred on tho king of Prussia. The whole of the German States have thus agreed; the German kingdoms alone hold hack. No one doubts at 1 Frankfort hut that the plenipotentiary of Saxony will soon sign the joint declaration of the German governments. i Several of the Austrian members of the National As- j srmbly have already left Frankfort, In obedience to tho u order of their government. n The Progreaa of the Schlemlg War, ' The Chamber of Commerce at llumburg hud pub- t lished the following notice; ? Agreeably to a notification from II. II. M. Consul-Ceiieral of this day, the Commodore of the Danish navy iu the North c Sea, has given the official notice, that from suariso of this 1 day (12th April) the blockade of the Elbe, Wesor, and .lulido t has commenced; that neutral vessels, however, now lying iu s the ports of the blockaded rivers, after having ssoer- j tained their identity, may pass nutil sunset of the UUtli of this month; as well as that, also, after that date, the steamers with the Koyal Hritish Mails shall pass, provided that only v the post-office letter-hags and passengers are on hoard. c Since the titli ult.. nothing of the least military im- t portanee hud taken place iu the Suudewilt. Tho Ger- z nutn advanced posts arc at Nudel, where the Danes are t iu possession of tho entrenchments, hut their principul > toroM have retired to Alsen. I The Germnu troops and the Schleswig-Holstciners t are now on the Jutland frontier. ('onsiderahle rein- a forcements of troops front tho interior of Germany continue to pass through this city uud Altonu. for the c Duchies. t Hamburg letters and papers contain some further j particulars of the engagement at Kckernforde, in which o the loss of human life is asserted to have been very greut. though no positive statement of the number of u tho Danes missing has couic to hand. Of prisoners there arc no less than 1.060 officers, sailors, and marines. v Accounts from Copenhagen say that the Duuish minis- F try are dcterincd to use all available menus in their li power to make up for the Kckernforde disnster. e On the llith the iniportunt intrcnchmcutt on the t Duppeler heights were stormed. From 4>,h. to u '4li., u A. M.. the Germans played upon them with their light s field-pieces ; the Danes replied both with heavy and e light artillery. The Dnnhh superiority in weight of 1 metal exposed our troops to considerable loss. About ti 10 A. M.. two columns of Bavarians und Saxons were ii formed to assault the heights. They moved rapidly o and steadily up the steep and broken ascent, the summit ti of which was crowned with breastworks and cannon. ft Notwithstanding tho inccssunt firing made lanes S through their ranks, they curried their point. A number fi of prisoners were made, and the ruptured cannon were ri turned against the enemy's ships in the ISity of Alsen, ri und their intrenehmeuts on the island. The retreat of L) tho Danes was effected in utter disorder The Danes p and their conquerors rolled in one confused mass towards the bridge of boats which connects Alsen with a the main. To prevent Alsen being also carried by storm, ? the Danes fired upon their own troops. This occasioned c the taking of a greater number of prisoners by tho i victors, but added considerably to the loss by killed und < wounded on both sides. When we take into account t that the combined German and Schlcsnigllolstciu t troops did not exceed 45.000 men, Hiid the Danes posted in tlie strong position on the Duppeler heights numbered 40,000, tlie allair must he udmittcd to be highly creditable to the former General Bonin, who is further north with 20.000 Schleswig-Holstelners, endeavored, but in vain, two successive days to induce the Dunes to give him battle near Holding. Affairs In Prusaln. The first distinct answer to the requisition issued by Trussia to the governments of Germany has bueu given by Austria. It is a totul refusal to join in the conference of states asked for by Trussia, and a denial of the right ol the Frankfort Assembly to elect an emperor at all; und it declares that that body, having contemplated its task of drawing up the scheme of a constitution, has, at last, openly declared. The answers of the other large powers are still waited for. The tone of the various German journals is gloomy and desponding They consider the refusal of the king as fatal to the best form of the German unity, and fear that it will give an impulse to the democratic movement. The position of the King of Prussia is unparalleled. If he holds firm to his refusal of an imperial crown, he is menaced with u republic. The government have seized another occasion to evince their anti-German policy. They have refused to recognise a deputation of the Schleswig-IIolstein Assembly, who nrrived at Berlin to express the satisfaction of the Duchies at the imperial election having fallen on the King of Prussia. After the delegates from Schleswig had waited a couple of days for an answer from Count Aruim to their application for an audience with his Majesty, they were told by tho minister of Foreign Affairs that the king could not receive tho deputation as such, but would be happy to give them audience as private individual:'., and see them at dinner. The deputation wrote at once in answer to Count Arnlm declining to divest themselves of their official character by being presented to the King in a private capacity ; and left Berlin to return to Sehleswig. I'he central committee has decided by a majority of four against three in favor of Waldcck's motion for the ( suspension of the state of siege. Turkey and Russia. 0 Tlie Cologne Gazelle publishes a letter from Jassy, of 11 the 26th of March, which stutcs that the relations bo- n tween the Russians and the Turks were becoming every f. day more hostile. Tho Turks appeared to expect a 11 war. According to a letter from Constantinople, In tho '' Jlugeburg Gazelle, the populations of Turkey were pre- c senting themselves to the recruiting officers with unac- ^ customed zeal, their being districts which offered to " supply double the contingent demanded. At Bucharest 0 there were almost every day collisions between the Rus- v sian and Turkish soldiers, and the animosity even ex- n tended to the superior officers. On the other hand, the Russians were arming with vigor. Their forces In tho Dnnubian principalities amount to W7.000 men. and a Vieuna journal says that the Russian minister had do- tl manded from the Porte that the period fixed for the ova- p cuut ion of the principalities by the Russians should be ti prorogued to thu 1st of May, A ukase of the F.mperor of Russia, dated tho 31st of ^ March, orders the ordinary levy of troops for 1849 in n tlie western government. The operation is to bo terminuted by 13th June. F.ight men are to be taken in w every I/MO inhabitants. The ukase says that the j, Kmperor has resolved, on account of present circum- b stances, to maintain a large portion of the atniy on a w war footing. ?j Affairs In Egypt?Insult to Americans. " It is stated from Alexandria, under date the 7th of |J April, that Abbas I'aclia lias given some hopes that when the barrage of the Nile and other greut works at present in course of construction arc completed, he tl will think of the railroad between Cairo and Suez; but * French influence is still active against it. The Vice- K roy's finances arc in a very low state, and the pay of a the troops is more than twelve months in arrear a Swarms of locusts have made their appearance in some b parts of the upper rountry nud the Delta; but the j< greater portion of the crops being ripe, not much * damage is feared. In tho upper country, however, tl there is a scarcity of grain. The I'nited States frigate I) Constitution had sailed for Malta, and the native 1' soldiers and water-carriers who had Insulted tho boat's a crew were still unpunished, notwithstanding the re- ti monstrances of the American Consul. In consequence A of the last advices from Kngland, crops had fallen. it Stocks were getting short, hut tho new produce would 1*1 soon come in. Freights' were unpreceifentedly low The exchange on Loudon was 98,', piastres per pound sterling. g, Affairs In India?The Victory of Goojerat, 11 Despatches in advance of the Overland mail, which * left Bombay on the 17th, have been received by express 'S| from Marseilles. They contain full particulars of the a decisive victory achieved over the 8ikhs on the 21 st of l' February last, n brief announcement of which urrived V by the last mail. On this occasion, no doubt can be en- n tcrtaiucd of the decisive character of the succest, the 1 enemy having been completely routed, with the loss of " his guns, ammunition, and camp equipage. Lord dough's army, which amounted to nearly 25.000 ' men. with 100 guns, encamped on tho 20th, in order of uuitie, Miiiiin iiiur nines 01 m? enemy, wuosc lorce was estimated at 60.000 men, with CO guns.

In the House of Commons, on the 10th ult., Mr. D'Israkli wished to make an inquiry respecting lie three mediations wiiich, before the Easier recess, er Majesty's government announced they had underiken. but which, after the Easter recess, hud assumed tie form of three blockades.

He wished to inquire, secondly, whether there as any objection to lay on the table, as soon as posblc, all the papers relative to the affairs of Denmark nd the Duchies ofSchleswig and llolsteln; and. thirdr, whether there was any objection to lay on the table tic records of the Congress of Brussels.

Mr. IIvmi: wished .to know whether the rumor wn irrect whieh generally prevailed, to the effect that a leescngcr arrived on the 26th March front Copenhagen, ith a despatch of importance for the noble lord the ecretary for Foreign Affairs, which despatch, it wa< llegcd. remained unanswered and unattended to until to late to prevent the hostilities which afterward took lace ' He would put this question to-morrow if the oble lord preferred to have notice of it, but he though;, he question was one that ought to be put, in order that he bouse might know whether any blame attached to he noble lord or not in respect to the rumor. (Hear, ear.) Lord Pai.mkrito*.?I may as well answer the qucslon now as to-morrow The facts are these: ? After he Danish government announced the aruiistlec, coin* vunicattons took place between Her Majesty's government and the two parties to the dispute, with a view to ndeavoring to see whether it was not still possible to ring about a friendly understanding, and 1 proposed, II the Dilh of March, a protocol to these parties, in the mpe that they might be brought to agree to it. On the fith id March the Danish Minister received from his ourt an amended version of this instrument, to which lie Danish government said they agreed, hilt they reuirrd that the consent of the German Plenipotentiary hnuld he immediately given to that Instrument in the urni in which they seut it. and they also desired that t aheaM be sent bock to tliein before the 20th of Mare li, a order that they might know whether they were to sgiu hostilities again, as they bad announced- on the d of April. Hie note of the Danish Minister, oommuniating this to mo was sent on the 26th of March) It was lot made in the usual official way, and it whs, y accident, mblnld; and it was not until Thursday, he 201 h of .Varrh. instead of Tuesday, the 27th, that I .us able to communicate the contents to the Prussian Hnisler. w ho was the representative of the central iowit But the proposal was one which It was anile Ut of the power of slint representative to accede to, nd it was peifrctly immaterial with resflect to the reult. whether the c niinunlcatlon were made to him on he Tuesday or on the Thursday. Tho proposal was ne which it was quite inconsistent with his Instrucions to accept, and therefore his answer would have iron the same on one day as it would have been on the tin r, namely, that he could not agree to it.
