On her arrival, her mails will be immediately distributed, at the post office. The Foreign News. The arrival of the Canada, after a remarkably fine passage across the Atlantic, has put us in possession of one week's later intelligence from the old world. There is not much special interest in tills news, but it is important in several particulars. The continent of Europe is still convulsed and agitated. It will be seen that the result of the appeal to arms has been, at various points, favorable to the popular cause. Austria has been signnlly defeated in Hungary, and is probably, by this time, driven out of the country. At Berlin, another out- 1 burst of popular feeling has occurred, involving another scene of bloodshed. The state of affairs ' in Italy is much the same as was represented by 1 the accounts received by the laststeanter. Throughout the whole continent the revolutionary elements 4 are everywhere at work. Society is shaken to its centre. The tramp of armed men is heard re. sounding in city, town, and hamlet. Despotism is ' preparing for the last decisive struggle, and the people, at last awakened to a sense of their own j strength, are also staking ready for the conflict. We cannot he unconcerned spectators of this scene, so full of solemn and paintul interest. With 1 intense anxiety we await the result, full of hope, not unmingled with fear and trembling?for the oppressor is mighty, and the people contend against fearful odds. In England, a change of the ministry seems to be approaching. The passage of the navigation laws has excited a powerful effect on the i>art of the op- ' position ; and the restoration of the tory party, or the ' conservatives, as they choose to style themselves, ' would not, perhaps, be detrimental to the progress ' of liberal principles in Great Britain. Almost all the " important measures of reform which have, within 11 the last twenty years, assuaged the revolutionary spirit of the masses in that empire, were wrung ' from a tory administration. The whigs of Great ^ Britain are excellent friends of the people?out of ^ office. Once in power, they are as much opposed e to progress und reform and liberty, as the rankest 8 tory aristocrat who fattens on the sufferings of his countrymen. A day of great and mighty change is, 1 however, fast approaching in Great Britain. The ' storm of revolution which now sweeps the Euro- 1 pean continent will, by und by, break on the island 1 empire. Already the sagacious statesman hears the distant murmuring of the tempest. The reign f an oppressive and overshadowing aristocracy 1 cannot be much longer protracted. If the present administration be ejected from office, we shull be 1 prepared to see the commencement of an agitation in the British empire, which will lead to the most ' t startling results. ? We awutt, with much interest, the news of the 1 result of the French elections. Indeed, in the present distracted state of Europe, when no man knows 1 what a day may bring forth, every arrival from the '' other side of the Atlantic will be looked for here * with intense anxiety. The Cholera.?It is s.tid that the cholera has appeared in this city t?ix cases were reported n yesterday, and the Board of Health were convened ^ immediately. The duty of the public authorities ^ is plain and simple. The streets must be thoroughly cleaned immediately, and such other sanitary j measures adopted as the exigency requires. ( Sailing of the Steamship America.?The 1 nteamship America, Capt. Harrison, sailed yesterday noon for Halifax and Liverpool. It w ill be ? seen, on reference to her list of passengers, that * she took out about as large a list as the steamship Europe, which left this port on the 2d inst. ' t Marine Affairs. YVm H.

ARRIVAL OF THE CANADA, czna WIEH LASER, RECEIVED BY SPECIAL OVERLAND EXPRESS, FROX HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA, TO St. John, New Brunswick. amd thence TELEGRAPHICALLY TO THE N. Y. HERALD. HIGHLY INTERESTING INTELLIGENCE. State of the Markets, dtc. Ac. die. St. John, N. B., Wednesday May 16?1J A.M. The steamship Canada, Captain Judkuas, with 82 through passengers, arrived at Halifax on Monday evening, at half-past six o'clock, making, with two exceptions, the quickest passage out on record, and quicker, from two to seven days, than she ever performed the passage before. Our pxnrpss left Halifax at 7 o'clock, and every possible exertion was made to get the newB through for the morning papers of Wednesday, but unfortunately there was no steamer in readiness to take it across the Bay of Fundy?the express steamer having been detained here longer than usual, en account of a very heavy stornt in the Bay, which it was desirable to avoid. The Canada brings Paris dates to the evening of the 3d, London of the morning of the 4th, and Liverpool to the afternoon of the 4th instant. She was to have left Halifax at 9 o'clock, and may, therefore, be looked for at New York early this morning. The London money market continues steady, and English securities are on the advance. Consols for money and account opened on Monday at 92], and closed firm at 92J. There is no material decrease in the stock of bullion held by the Bank of England. The total amount of gold shipped to the United States, exclusive of i.'25,000 on board the Canada, is stated at ?411,900. The accounts from New York, by the Niagara, of th? fluctuation of exchanges, has tended materially to check the exportations of specie. There is an improved demand in the London narket for American stocks, more particularly in Pennsylvania 5 per cents. That stock is quoted at 7 a 79, which is the only stock mentioned in the London papers. The steamer Hermann arrived at Cowee, from S'ew York, on the 3d inst. The Hungarian War. Official notice of the intervention of Russia in lungary, has been received at Paris. The number of men placed at the disposal of Austria, is 80,000. Another account states the number at 150,000. rhe war in Hungary, so far at least as Austria is concerned, is daily assuming a more serious as pect; the Austrians have been signally defeated and driven to the edge of Hungary, ifnot out of thecountry altogether; the undoubted success of thellungarians has caused dismay to the seat of empire, and Vienna dreaded their triumphant approach.? Appearances are decidedly against her. The disisters in Hungary tend to modify the tone of Ausria in Piedmont?Kadetzky has reduced his denands for indemnities, from two hundred and thireen million francs to eighty millions, which is iccej table to Sardinia, and a treaty of peace has iccordingly been concluded. We have intelligence from Berlin to May 1st. flatters continue in much the same state as before, rhe number of the military within the city has >een increased. It is rumored that Prussia has ntered into an alliance with llussia and Austria tgainst Hungary. Letters from Pesth to the 29th ult., confirm the tews of the evacuation of that city by the impclalists. The same letters assert that at Pesth the >cople were displaying, it mny be said, in sight of he imperialists, a Hungarian cockade and colors, rhe orthodox away to Vienna. Presburg is being put into a state of defence w ith the greatest haste. Bern bus not gone in the direction of Wallachia, us it was said, but has inarched to Tenieswar. The suspension bridge between Pesth and Ge10a, the largest in the world, and the pride of Hungary, has been destroyed by the Austrians, in order o cover their retreat. The whole line of the imperial troops have now etired to the position of Kaab, their left wing | eing still near ("omorn, and sending at intervals , ome shells into the fortress. i The Magyars are advancing towards Vienna, 011 ' tie left side of the i>anube. Probably the imperial , miy will be obliged to return to the Marchfield, , ear Vienna, as the only means of resisting the j lagyara. The imperial troops are entirely disor- 1 anized. The news from Pesth is to the effect that the lungarians have obtained j>ossession of the Island 1 >f Schutt, in the llanube, and that they have cut < tVihe rr treat of the Imperialists. The army in Hungary have caused the Prussian government to concentrate an army of observation 11 the frontier of Austria and Silesia. Austria demands Russian interference in the afairs of Hungary, and it was expected that the Emerorof Russia w ould publish a manifesto explain tig his moti/ea for interfering. Important from PrauU. Th? King of Prussia has again quarrelled with i is Pal ha men t. and hasdefmitely refused to accept lie imperial crown of Germany. On the 26th. the rcond I'hnmber having passed some obnoxious ' [ solutions against holding I'.erlin longer in a state ' f siege, was forthwith dissolved by royal ordi- ' ance. This gave great displeasure to the people ' f Berlin, and was the immediate cause of a popu- ' ir commotion, which was, for the time, suppress- ' J by the soldiers, but not until more blood had J een shed. On the 26th ult., the Prussian ministry sustained 1 sother defeat in the second Chamber. In conscience of these successive defeatssustained by the ' iveinment in the second Chamber, on the Geran question and on the motion lor terminating 10 state of siege, the cabinet resolved to dissolve t lat body. The excitement caused by the dissolu- ( i n, in the city of Berlin, sj>eedily assumed a ^ rious uspf ct. Groups of men began to assemble f i 'he principal squares, patrols were called out, j, lev. were exchanged, and some arrests were mde. An officer, who had ordered his detach- ^ lent back to the barracks, was struck, and his 0 n av< nged the insult by discharging their ^ iiiski ts at the Hggressors. One nian is reported > have been killed, and others wounded. On the 5th ult. attempts were made to erect barricades 1 several |><>inls on the llebrilatx. The soldiers ' ere cc repelled to fire, and the casualties in the " 11 iiftig were ascertained to be four killed, one of hem was a woman, and five wounded. On the ^ iili, several other persons were shot by the miliir> , but subsequently order was restored. Tho arhlnwlg War. The war in fckhleswig continues, and the ( remised peace seems still very far distant. ? cur of the French war steamers returned > Toulon, from Civitu Vecchia, on the 2Hth, j Inn preparations were immediately made to f lid.ark nnother detachment of 6,000 infantry, *o batteries of artillery, and several squad- t m rons of cavalry, which it was expected would sail for Italy on the 2d inst. This movement might lead to the supination that General Ouduiot expected resistance at llome. However that may be, it is stated thut General Avezzana would not wait for reinforcements to march, a column of six thousand nu n having been already directed towards that city. It is reported that preliminaries of n*w conditions of peace have been proposed by Kngland, and already accepted by Prussia. They are the withdrawal of the troops at Jutland, and simultaneous cessation of the blockade of the German porta by the Panes. Important from Rome. The news of the arrival of the French lias created a great sensation at Home, where, it was said, Aver/ana had got 20,000 men, under arms, to meet them. Another report states that the Romans did not wuit for the arrival of the French troops, to rise against the triumvirate. Marzirn hud, according to the statement, fled, and the population pronounced for Pius IX. The French commander proclaims a mission rather friendly than otherwise; and it is understood that the Pope will be expelled, or compelled to grant not only an amnesty, but desirable reforms. Similar conditions will probably be imposed on the Grand Duke of Tuscany. At Paris, on the 3d inst., it waB reported at the Bourse, and generally credited, that the government bad received a telegraphic despatch, announcing the entry of the French into Rome, und the flight of the republican government; also that the Tuscan troope had entered Leghorn. Austria. The first transport of Russian soldiers were expected to arrive by railway from the frontiers from /i m* j ir: ^rucuw, uh uic mniumiciu, near virniiu, uu uic 6th instant, The Marchfield is an area of four square miles, and it is quite fit for an encampment, as wel 1 as for a field of battle. Foreigners are not allowed to stay in Vienna. Bohemia. From Bohemia, we hear that the peasantry are arming themselves with scythes, and are preparing for a revolution. The French Republic, The funds were favorably affected by these reports. The Sicilians, beaten at all points, have virtually submitted to the Iving of Naples and the French Admiral, und have negotiated successfully for favorable conditions. The accounts of the Bank of France show an increase of specie to the extent of 6,000,000 francs. On the 3d inst., French five per cents realized HOf.SOe.; three per cents, 58f.; which is an advance from the preceding day of 50c. on the fives and 65 on the threes. According to the programme in Paris of the 4th May, and for which a grant of 200,000 francs has been made by the National Assembly, a Te Deum by the National Assembly and the constituted authorities, is to be performed, for which workmen urc busily making preparations in the Place de la Concorde. On the same occasion, the city of Pario will give a grand entertainment to the President of the republic. The loan of twenty-five millions of francs, contacted by the city of Paris, was adjudicated on Thursday week, toM. Becket & Co., at l,105f 40c., every debenture l,000f. earning interest at 5 per cent* These terms are considered as highly advantageous to the city of Paris, and are held to show that confidence is being fully established. The breach between the President and his cousin, Napoleon Bonaparte, is now complete, as at the latter end of last week, immediately after the return of the latter from Madrid, a violent altercation took place between the cousins, the result of which would have been, under ordinary circumstances, an appeal to arms. The insult which occasioned this outburst was, after a great deal of recrimination, M. Nupoleon Bonaparte denounced the President as a bastard, and told him he was not only a kite's egg put into an eagle's nest, but that the whole of the Bonaparte fumily knew him to be so. Divers parties in the field are actively employed in endeavoring to influence the forthcoming elections. It is impossible to give a guess of the result, even 111 Paris. The authorities at Marseilles have prevented the sailing of a body of volunteers, raised in Paris for the service of the Roman republic. The cholera in Paris is on the decrease. Old Dupont de l'Eure, who is 83 years of age, is suffering from an attack of it. The approaching electoral struggle occupies the journals of all shades. Prince dc Joinville will be chosen a member of the legislature at the ensuing election. , England. , The English clergy relief bill has been con- i sidered in the committee, and appears likely to f pass the Commons, with some alterations tending t to place the nonconformist clergymen upon equal footings. If the Peers throw out the bill for repealing the navigation laws, the British nation is evidently in for an agitation more bitter and personal than this country has experienced since 1830. rhe interests of individuals and classes are ieeply involved; the landlords will fight for increased income ; the masses and the manufacturing community for cheap bread and increased trade. The bill was to have been taken up in the House of Lords on the 7th inst. The rate in aid bill has reached the Lords ; but the vote on the repeal of the navigation laws bill will decide the fate of that measure, as well as Lord John Russell's bill for emancipating the Jews. If the Peers resolve on an adverse decision, the ministry go out, and of course the dependent measures fall through; if otherwise, the ministerial measures will, in all probability, be carried. Mr. Ewart, on Tuesday, preferred his annual motion for the abolition of death punishment. The honorable member outliers strenoth as he nroepeda. but he has yet much to do before he has hope for l success. Ireland. The private letters and newspapers received i rrom the West and South, are partly filled with the ^ leplornblc accounts of deaths by starvation, in all t he horrors which have ever marked that awful 1 jondition in the Western workhouses. The pau {. era are d>ing in hundreds. In truth, matters are ? jetting from bad to worse. The task of reading J] he provincial organs of repeal has really become * torrible. They are all on the same story, and set o the same delicious tunc. a The writ of error, in the case of Smith O'Brien f uid others, is to be heard in the House of Lords t >n the 10th inst. J India. ; Later advices by the overland mail confirmed, tl o the fnlleet extent, the previous accounts of the 1 ntire termination of the war in the Punjaub. p Commercial reports continued highly favorable; a ? ecent severe frost in the south of France caused ' mmenee injury to the mulberry trees, which, vith other causes, has created a rise of 2s. per lb. or silk. a Continental disturbances continue to act prejulicially in Kngland, U|K>n most of her nrticles of n reduce and manufactures. Accounts from Manhesttr are no better; the diminution of business rising from absence of fort ign orders, being the jj lain feature of the reports. n There has been a slight improvement in the Li- ! l crpool cotton market for American descriptions, iut Lgyptian and Brazil have declined. The Havre cotton market is a good deal deresaed, occasioned mainly by the large shipments In xpeeted from the United States, announced by '' lie Niagara. Prices have receded about one w ienny. The trade of Franee is rapidly improving; the n mport duties of March have more than doubled, 11 omjaired with the same mo.ih last year mj Tbe increase of exports also is equally apparent. ?it the London corn exchange, on Friday, tlicrc ?*' was scarcely any business done. Floating cargoes ot Indian corn, on the coast, found buyers at 32s. a 33a. per quarter. Good brands of flour were offered at 2-fs., without attracting attention. A meeting, very numerously attended, has been lield in London, to form a national league for restoring the principle of protection of national industry. It is supposed that the meeting was got up for the purpose of fortifying the House of Lords in the step it now seems probable that branch of the legislature will pursue, in throwing out the bill for the repeal of the navigation act. Should this bill be defeated in the House of Lords, it will, it is supposed, carry down with it all the prominent measures of the ministry and the ministry itself. Canudiun aflHirs have 'been, on several occasions, incidentally noticed in Parliament, but the Ministry have carefully avoided giving any information of the views or intentions of the government, in relation to the impending quarrel. Markets. Litirpooi., May 5.?-Since tho sailing of the Iiibernla, the imports of cotton have been 113,277 bale*, of which 104.140 are American. Price* of American, partlculary the low and middling qualities, nre higher. Egyptian and Brazil, quoted 4%d.. and Orleans 4%d. The sales of the week ending May 4. were 46,190 bales, of which nearly 30.000 were American. Speculators took 2,360 bags American, and exporters 2,710. Another feeling of depression has come over the grain trade. The weather has lately become Tery favorable to the growing crops, which causes buyers to confine their purchases to immediate wants. At Marklane, on Monday last, English wheat sold generally at a decline of one shilling to two shillings per quarter. Foreign also met a very limited demand, although a similar deduction was accepted in the value of both flour and Indian oorn. A slight concession was made on the following day At Liverpool a limited demand for wheat and flour was experienced, and former prices wore barely maintained. Indian corn was in brisk request, and regained the depression last noticed. Indian meal sold at ISs. per barrel. Yesterday the London market was dull, and very little business doing. Flour was sold at 23s., and towards tho close of bnslncss that price was not obtained, although holders refused 22s. Cd. for considerable quantities, and some transactions have taken place at 22s. Od. per bbl. Prime Ohio ia quoted at 23s. to 24s. 6d. Indian corn improved in demand, and sold at 31s. a 32s. for white.

The imports of American grain and produce, during the past week, comprised 7 610 bbls. flour, 20,018 qrs. of Indian corn.and 081 bbls. Indian meal. There are very few transactions preooding naval stores. Turpentine is selling at 7s. per cwt.j common rosin at 3s. per cwt. Of cured provisions, the produce of America, the import of the last week is as follows:?1,224 tcs. of beef: 3,118 bbls. pork; 7.532 cwt. bacon; 442 casks of hams; 1.181 bbls. and t>00 kegs lard; 248 bxs choose, and 31 bbls. tallow. Beef Is In better request, and prices are steady. Pork Is lower?both western and eastern mere off slowly. The price of bams has again receded 2s. a 3s. per cwt. Shoulders are in good demand. Lard is in moderate request, the import being light Holders are firm. Little business is doing in cheese, supplies being short. Liverpool Freights, May 4.?Freights at Liverpool? During the past week, the freight market has been very quiet, and rates arc again lower. Passengers do not offer so freely, and are taken cheaper. New York dead weight. l()s a 12s.

Examination of Jacob Frort. on a charge of Jlmault and Vatlrry. with intent to commit a Ha/>e ?The examination >f Mr' Jacob Frost, an account of whose arrest was [ivt n on Monday last, took place at the police court restcrday afternoon. The affair has created the most ntense excitement in South Brooklyn, where Mr Frost esides. 'I he charge is, that in the early part of April nst. the defendant made an assault upon the person of iusarmah Brulus. a servant in his family, and at:enipt<d to violate her person.

The burk Plymouth had arrived at New Orb-ana from Vera Cruz, with advices from San Francisco, to the 29fh of April-eleven days later than previously received The new* from California la very important. Meetings have been held at Sun Francisco and elsewhere. and resolutions pawed to organize a Legislative Assembly, to be composed of fifteen members, who ante be charged with the duties of framing laws for the preservation of order and the protection of trade. It was also resolved to elect three J udges. A latter dated Vera Cruz 24th ultimo, says that it waa reported there that the people of California had organized a government, which disavowed the authority of General Perslfer K. Smith, as Governor, and annulled hia order prohibiting foreigners from working at the mlnae. The Picayune has received the following letter, dated " MitiTUH, April 0,1849. " Gkmtlemen .-?The Peruvian bark Fanny, Capt. De Brot, arrived here on the 7th instant, direct from San Franclaco, whence she sailed the 29th ult. "A short time before the Fanny left, one of the hmkfa' Lolnncrintr tn thu IT. fi flfkor shin Ohio, ran I away with the boat. They were, however, pursued, captured, and brought back. Shortly after, the crew of the ship being called upon to perforin some duty, they refused to turn out and obey the orders of the officer?, In consequence of which, about thirty of the leaders were confined in irons. A court martial was being held on board the Ohio, and it was tho opinion that Commodore Jones would hang a number of the consp lators. " There was much disaffection in the navy. "All the officers of the sloop of war St. Mary's had been tried by court martial, save two." The U. S. steam propeller Massachusetts arrived at Sun Francisco, on the 25tfa of March. Owing to the immense number of people arriving at San Francisco, the whole country was considered in a very insecure state. There was a great want felt for the presence of an adequate military force, and for the extension of the laws of the United States over the territory, in the absence of which, much trouble was anticipated. Prices of everything at San Francisoo continued very high. The discovery of new and rich deposits of gold is ef daily occurrenoe. The reported discovery of a gold placer in Oregon is confirmed. The New Orleans Picayune expresses a doubt of the correctness of the statements in regard te Gen. Smith's authority having been disregarded. Trouble among the California Kmlgrants, Fight with the Klckapoo Indiana. St. Loitis, May 10. 1849. Trouble has grown up among the California emigrants, and several companies have already disbanded.

The Crevaaae at Jefferson, on the Mississippi?Approach of the "Waters of the River to New Orleans?Fears tor the Safety of the City 1 Baltimore, May 10?10 P. M. By the mall from New Orleans, this evening, we learn that the Crevasse, af Jeffersen, on the Mississippi, a few miles above New Orleans, is fearfully on the increase. The breach in the levee had widened to 150 feet. thronoh which the waters of the river hail to such an extent that portions of Jefferson, Carrollton, and Lafayette, (lying above Now Orleans, within about seven miles, and closely joined together) were overflowed; and reaching to Hercules street, in the Second Municipality ot the city ef New Orleans itself. The Picayune expresses fears for the safety of the city. The planters along the river havo suffered immensely. Great efforts were making to fill up the broach, and stay the water In its proper channel, but many had almost despaired of success attending the undertaking. The Cholera at the West. Baltimore, May 10, 1840. The western papers are filled with reports of the ravages of the cholera at St. Louis, Louisville, Cincinnati, on the steamboats of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, and among the California and other emigrunts who have taken tlnir way westward. The disease appears to yield to prompt treatment; but on the steamboats, where medical assistance cannot be readily obtained, the mortality is very great. On board of one boat, upon which there were a large number of Mormon passengers, there had occurred twenty-one deaths. St. Lor is, May 10.1349. The cholera in this city is slightly decreasing.

The rainy season has fully set in. Chagres rii has risen to such a height, that, before this reael you, the Orgs will go up as far as Cruces; at without doubt, all emigrants will have to go by t way of Cruces to Panama, as the Gorgona road now so muddy, it is hard to get over it. In consequence of a disregard of the local t thorities in the vicinity of Panama, recently, several lawless persons among the American ei grants, communications have passed between I Governor of the province, Tomas Herre and Mr. Nelson, the U. S. Consul. The C vernor, after giving some details of the d?. culty thatj^haa occurred, and the breach' the peace committed by the Americans al ded to, reminds the U. *S.
