London, SiTvmitr Moaning, May 6, 1849. Since tho departure of the lout moil steamer, on Saturday last, from Liverpool, events of high political Importance have occuriud in Europe. THE HUNGARIAN WAR. The citraordinary dovelopomnnt given te the insurreetion in Hungary, had, for some time, given rise to serious alarm ; but the advantages stated to have baeu gained by the Magyars were regarded as exaggerations. Their ranks, however, swelled continually?the Poles arrived in large numbers from all parts of Europe, aud the kernel of the Hungarian army consists of 15,000 Poles, accustomed to desperate lighting ; and Italian patriots, and insurgents of Vienna of last October, are all marshalled in battle array against Austria. Thus reinforced, the insurgents advanced within sight of Pesth; and near the river Uran,*nd the town f the same name, tliuy came up with the outposts of General Weldeu's army. On the 21st the battle com. menccd. Welden, who commanded the reserve In person, occupied the heights of Gran. Tho Jablonowski and Simunich brigades were drawn up in line of battle on the open ground between Gran and Comorn. The Hungarians attacked the imperialists with such fury, that in despite of their bravery, they were compelled to retreat. Besides a severe list in killed and wounded, the Austrlans lost 20 gunB and 2 000 prisoners. This intelligence caused a regular panie'at Vienna, and "the Mary s aie coming." passed from lip to lip. The yieiitui Gazette published the following account ef the affair Baron Welden having taken a survey of the operations at Comorn, arrived at Oran on the 17th, and then convinced himself that tho enemy, after the demon- i titrations made before Pesth, hud set out by a great i round over Ipoly-Sugh for Leva, with a view to raising i ih? !?*? of Comorn. The five brigades collected on 1 tho Waag, under the orders of General Wohlgemuth, i had meanwhile proceeded to the Gran, which enabled i him to deploy his troops, eager for battle, on the space I lying between these two streams ? un excellent position for us: while Veigl's brigade is disposed as reserve i between Kornend, Kobockur. and St. Teter. This 1 movement would be followed up by suitable attacks i over against Teeth and Waitzen, supported by pruden- < tittl measures for the protection of Gr&n, in ease of an < engagement with the enemy, who are our superior in numbers, and furnished with plenty of artillery and ' light cavalry. j The war in Hungary has lately assumed a character 1 which must be distinctly observed, In order to arrive < at a clear notion of events in that country, past and to 1 some. i After the imperial army, in the months of December t and January last, had occupied, by a series of triuin- ] phant victories, the western portion of the territory, \ and taken possession of the capital, the belief gained * . ground that the affairs of the kingdom would De ad- i justed in a peaceable manner ; and with that object In I view, the attention of the government was primarily t directed to the restoration of the administrative 1 power. That hope has, however, turned out a forlorn t one. It is true, the re-establishment of material order f followed in the wake of the troops, but a moral pacilication was not effected, and tlie time slipped by In the a vain effort?time well employed by the cuemy, who set r very engine of revolution at work to increase their powor and draw froin all parts of Kuropo accessaries t to thelc schemes. A numerous and well appointed t army Is now opposed to us, and it is no longer disputa- 1 hie that ou the battle field alone the fate of Huugary a mast be decided. This truth Is acknowledged by the s imperial government and the generals of the army; and 1 from the present moment the government la Hungary I takes Its stand on a military basis alone. Tho foe must he fought, beaten and destroyed ; till this happens, all other concerns must be trented as of secondary Impor- * tance. To uocomplish this, it is necessary to concen- li tratc all the forces of the Emperor on those points that R Eresent themselves as most fitted for that end, acoordig to strategical calculations. It stands to reason e that, while these preparations are going on, the indivi- c dual and separate movements cannot be made known, and that in the middle of marches and counter mar- _ hes the events of each day eannot be reported. Our *, patriotic fellow citizens may in the meantime console i] . themselves with the assurauce that a bravo army. am- a ply provided with the materials of war, and led by B commanders tried in battle, who are receiving fresh j, reinforcements from all sides, must eventually save 0 the eausc of the country ; and that the determination F to uphold a free, great and united Austria, animates r the monarch and his counsellors, alike with the eblef g populations of our wide realm, and that the convulsive T throes of a criminal faction, who, aidod by foreigners, _ would hurry their country into ruin, through the in- f strumentality of the worst of passions, must bow down ^ in abasement to the force of this united will. ( The following bulletin was also published:? t After the Austrian army had retired towards I'esth, la the 1 early date of the present month, and taken up a eeneeatra- ( ted poeitb n in front of the two citlos, the enemy made almost daily attempts to break through our lines, but without sue- . eete. These attacks, however, afforded them a convincing 1 proef thnt our chief force lay tound Buda-Testh. They then C proceeded to attack Waitien, defended by Goti's two brigades, en which occasion that general was killed, forced our men ap the Danube, over Leld and Kornend, and marched straight upon Leva with two strong Columns, tho ono on the left Gran bank, the other over lpoly-Sagh, supposing us all I the time fully occupied at Pesth. At beva the enemy had, on the 18th, collected about 30.0(10 of hie best troops, under Gor- ' gey, with which be passed the Gran in three columns, at Kal- ? na, Bars, and St. Hcncdek. Field-marshal Lieutenant Wohlgemuth, commander of fire brigades, about lA.OCO men, disposed as reserve behind the 1 Gran, informed of this movement, marched on the lHth and 19th from Kornond to meet the enemy between Malts and Beee, They had, meanwhile.with their whole force, doubled ? our numbers, drawn up in line of battle betweon ? erebely o and Nagy- Sarlo. An attack of the brigate Jablonowsky, on Magy-Sarlo, succeeded perfectly, but tbe place taking Arc, t obliged the enteringeolumn to withdraw. This circumstance was employed by the enemy to surround onr right wing, be- I twven the Gran and Nagy-Sarlo, and the same manoeuvre was tried on onr left, from Verebely. The most obstinate t fighting had lasted from early in the morning till the afterBoon. Wohlgemuth had led back his harassed Croons front ( one post to another with his usual judgment, while the enemy had extended their lines to Neutra. Orders had been previously givon to General Woblge- i mnth to continue his retreat beyond the Neutra, and even ? the Wsag. in ease of an unfavorable turn, for the purpose of oovering Presburg and the valley of tho Waag, and ro-opontng a communication by the Selintte island with the besiec- r tag corps of Comoro, which fortress was being constantly i assailed. The Commander-in-Chief, Baron Weldcn, who \ arrived at Gran on the 17th, pi-rinaded that the main force . of tho enemy, by making a ilrtour over the hills, eonld have proceeded to the relief of Comoro, instantly directed Jollaehich to leave l'osth with his eolleetive force end attack tbe f enemy, hut not to pursue his advantage too rashly. p Oa tbe 19th, tho Ban advanced en all tides, but the foe took to hie beele to precipitately as to be out of reach of our shot. j On the 3ffth, another hostile column, which had stood in re- . serve at I'asslo, on the river l|>oly, came down with the left wing of the enemy, on the right Gran bank, against K rnend and Ornn. and immediately attacked the reserve division, Keortck, there stationed, who retired, fighting, upon Gran, .' ( Wohlgemuth having already passed Ncunausel) and broke up the lirldgc of boats at that place, la order to defend tbe , ^eint as long as possible. On the Wth, WelJcn reached | Under the present sipert of affairs, it struck theenin- j Biander-in-chief that a longer possession of Ruda and I'esth weald lie prejudicial to the further military operations, espe- J eially as tho Danube, from Coinorn to WatUeii, was already ( In the hands of the rehels, and as neither of the two cities in question was a pivot of notion.

Accounts from Pesth, up to the 21st, state that the foe had made an attack at Csinknta- bnt was everywhere re pulsed by onr men who were sent against them. Count Nugent reports from ftemlin, under date ttie 17th, that tilings look brighter on the Lower Danube. The CtuikIsten trnrt is ileared of the enemy.

The immediate rt cult was the raise of the siege of Comoro, which gallant fortress hM been rnrictualled and reinforced, the eradiation of the city of Fe.-th, and an appeal to RuchIr. a general inaurreetion In Poland, lialllcie, and theflrand Dnehy ofTosen, is feared.

The autyolnod letter, from a well Informed person at Vienna, contains the latest Intallifcnca . % Vir.ntA, April 28. 1840. The plot Is thickening. The entrance of the Russian* ?m wmtr is now placed beyond all doubt. Humors of a lluaeiau manifest were yesterday on the tapii, and 1 fnlly expected to see the document In print to-day, but ant disappointed. 1 can only assure yep that it i xi'ts, E N El and contains a dear exposition of the reasons fwflthe Hit intervention.

Prussia, with her bran-new constitution, cannot afford to help us. France, calling herself free, is the nominal enemy of Austria. Kngland, ? ht that has enjoyed constitutional liberty for centuries, tic i speculates coldly at a distance on the fortune of war in Hungary; besides which, Lord I'almerston has intrigued against us in Italy. This is the sum and sub- 0 stance of the article in IJoyd, which is founded on the an(j urgent necessity of aid from some quarter, and that without lose of time. The same paper attempted to Lot show, in a late nnmber. that alliances have always been mei formed between Status of antagonistic political princi- r0T pies, and that the interests of free States have generally been found to be opposed; instancing Kngland and ' France, Kwpland and America; and citing the friendly mo' relations 0Kngland and Russia, and Great Britainand n'H Austria(anctcnrcgimr)ascasesin point. Yet these powers fi!a neyer dreamt of interfering in the Internal udminlstra- J''''' tion of their respective governments. This may all be a'HI very true and pluusiblo. hut I think you will distin- J',u guish between a friendly alliance and an armed assist- to i unce. The friends of Austria all unite in deprecating eve the entry of the Russians. It is felt to be a national oru disgrace, inasmuch as it proves the incapacity of the Kov country to meet the exigency. The question resolves ,0 ' itself into the dire alternative of losing a neighboring province and the command of the high road to the l"0 Fast, or saving it and the monurchy by foreign aid. rBa< The lesser evil has been preferred by the government, and every true patriot must submit. There can be no 1,a<i doubt that the Hungarian insurrection has assumed a Polish character, and that Kossuth is becoming every day a less conspicuous personage. In the middle of the February there were only two Polish legions. Dem- < bintki now, in his bulletins, speaks of eight. If they are ?1 1 all as strong as the two before established, each stund- : ing ut .1,500 men, there are now 28,000 Poles in the Hungarian army, not to mention the 1.400 or 1,500 emi- *1"' grants, and those from the kingdom of Poland. Podolia, Pf* and Volhynia. Galieia has. however, furnished the Nal greatest number of volunteers. froi Those who apprehend a return to absolutism as a noccssary consequence of this alliance (and there are M?: many such), forget that the rising in Hungary is not n'K intended to overthrow u principle of government, but d* the empire itself, and to set up another ia its stead, or ut all events one opposed to its interests. The pretext lha of Kossuth, that he isttghting the battles of Ferdinand 8UV V., shows to what paltry subterfuges he is driven, to T1'1 provide a decent excuse for tho war. Austria, there- ca'| fore?-the free, oonstitutionul. and united Austria?is en- *hi gaged in a struggle for life, and wages war, in self-dc- en^ fence, against her enemies, who seem, by one common ^ accord, to have met on the plains of Hungary, deter- ' mined to destroy her. Should she succumb, tho rebel- lnK lion will extend to tho Russian Polish provinces, and to Posen. The Czar is obviously interested in preventing this by a display of force, and in enteriuir 11 linearv be will fight his owu buttles. 8c I haieju?t heard that the Russian note will be pub- ?' lisht'd to-morrow, accompanied by an Austrian one. twci From what 1 can learn, Russia scuds into Austria Den 150.000 men. Three corps are to enter Hungary in the the Dorth. three others to occupy the lower Danube and ibc Trans} Ivan ia, and 20.000 are destined for the protection j ,f et \ ienLa on the side of liungury. So we shall hare hacj them nt arenough. They undertake to provision them- ther selves, and ure only to obey n Russian general. I un- Wh< derstand, also, that one of the stipulations made re- n(,t quires the delivery up of all Russian-Polos that have J'**1' been captured by the Austriuns iu Hungary. The in?urrcction, however well organized und extensive in its t?st ramifications, cannot he expected to make head against thiol the overwhelming force now in the field. appr Brcslau papers tell us that the Prussian government * ire taking active measures to prevent an inroad af tho , Magyars. A strong corps of observation is to be drawn horn icross the Silesinu (upper) frontier, it having been as- uaen . ertained that the plan is to carry the insurrection into that -rncow and i'oeen. show We are without news of importance from Hungary. *as rwo squadrons of Kossuth Hussars are said to have enlered l'eeth, tired of bivouacking in the fields, and hear inding the passage clear. They wero received with tatie >pen arms, and the cries of " Eleyen Kossuth" could laugl jo heard across the river in Buda. The Austrian gar- "( y1 ison have Fet flro to the bridge of boats, and Clarke, *1?'" be English architect, and constructor of the uew sus- ,iete, lension bridge, has received orders to render it uua- dent railable for tne purposes of transport. V. From Hermannstadt we hear nothing in a direct ,8 e nanner, the Saxon land being hermetically closed. Ty.'J1 lecruits are being constantly levied from the popula- '\ktb ion best known for their loyalty. They arc pressed be di nto the Bcrvice noltns volent. Thus famine stares to pr hem in the face, the best and youngest hands being nets, orced to exchange the ploughshare for the sword. A 1 Percael has retired within the fortress of Peterwarden, Iter starting his guerilla corps in 1,000 wagons, on 4ndi, tew adventures. vohi! There is a report iu town to-day that Gen. Schlik, behe iy dint of forced marches of fifty hours' duration, has aken Gorgcy in the rear, and broken his columns. me?' 'wo battalions were cut to pieces. This I give you as J?!'!, mere rumor. We know nothing positive of the po- a ' ition of the armies, nor even the head-quarters of govei Velden. Some say they are at Ocdenburg, others at Th labolua. I have dwelt at some length on this Russian interven" oujh ion, as it is one of those great events which stand as kefoi indmarks in the history of the world. It is difficult to Magi ay what it may not lead to. The war in Europe has ommenced. At Paris, curiously enough, it did not iDK? ause much sensation. (liei The official news, says a letter from that capital, of 1uen esterday's date, received here yesterday, of tho interention of Russia in Hungary, does not create any alarm. funcj 'he number of men placed by the Russian government form t tho disposal of Austria is HO.000 men. By the expla- bear, lations given to the French government by Russia, the " otervention is justified, on the ground that it is the BoF' nly means Russia now has of preventing a general ri- thro' ing in Toland. The principal generals in the Hunga- Vp fo ian army being Poles, the pooplc of that country are in tativ . state of the greatest excitement, and as the seat of ohtal rar approaches the frontiers, there is the greatest dan- Ut * ;er of u rising. Prussia is also alarmed on account of Py' he Grand Duchy of Posen. which also threatens to join had 1 n the movement. It is said that Prussia has not only as w onsentcd to the intervention of Russia, but has offered puni o send an army of observation to the frontiers of Gal- tjoui icia. I have learned, from very good sources, that tho jjf ntervention of Russia in Hungary does not give any {?*,] imbragc to the French government, which sees in it an Tsrj mitation, and. at the same time, a justification of its say t iwu intervention in Rome.

These twopiurtles distrust il uod feared each other to that extent that each of t them thought it necessary to protect themaelrea I. in thia way by a fpecial police not recogniaed by the 8 government, l.auiartiue, however, deniea having had " any such police, or ever having bad any knowledge of b itk oxiatenco or ita neeeaalty All these thinga eoming - out at the moment of the elections, bare, aa may be - cusily imagined, thrown great diacredlt on the metabera 18 of the provisional government generally, and on the party of the mountain in particular. It la even thought ,. probable now, that the leaders of that par-y may fail ; to ebtaiu returns In the next Assembly. If each a rent , suit were to ensue, It would be lamentable, inasmuch ! aa they would immediately become the leaders of eonot ! spiracles and secret societies, which thev are mnah leas 'I likely to do while they have a vent for their discontent in the tribune of the Aaaembly ly It is also considered certain that, unless General Cant vaignnc he returned for Paris, which is very doubtful, -- he will not bo returned at all. j" It is now calculated that, among the 760 members of " the next Aaaembly. there will not bo so much as 160 belonging to the sincere or free republican party, lie It is usual, at this season of the year, in Paris, far be the assemblies, receptions, bulls, and other social re3n unions, which run through the season, to cease. ,ts Thia year, however, appears to form an exoeption, and tB wo havu still the official receptions of the ministers La, going on. The private parties of the Minister of tha ?- Interior, hold on Suuday evenings, atlll continue, and lie are numerously attended. The publlo balls, whiah T r~ have so often mentioned, at the Holel do Villa, have ceased, but there are numerous and brilliant privato ,B parties continually going forward. We were present id lately nt a splendid musical ontertainment, and seirse 5- dantanlt, given by the Baroness de Godlnot, where Mud'selle llabi and Mad'dumolselles Duex and Nantler executed with great ability and taste a symphonic ode, ~ called the SirCnei. On this occasion almoat all the fashionable amateurs In music were present. St. Leon, the husband of the pretty Cerito, also executed a piece '? on the violin, <t la Tsganini. Auother brilliant hull has beon given by Madame la Viscountesse de Lucoussaye. at her splendid hotel on the Qua! d'Orssy, at which all the distinguished foreigners In Paris figured, among whom was Lord Brougham, a the Prince and Prinoess Ctartoryskl, and the beautiful Countess Suuuxolf, who passes here by the loutriqa*t of ' VJlngt du Xord. ' ? In inv former li.Mur I muntIS (kn nmJh.1I.. Meyerbeer's opera of the " F'rophete," and gave you my commeuts ou it. according to the Impressions produced n by first lunring it. On hearing it a second time " my opinion In modified. Though a magnificent l' and highly scientific musical composition, it is dramatically rather heavy, and will not, i think, be a favorite with thu gencrul public, although it* *cleotifl? excellence will procure for it tho approval of professional men and tognoirmlt, and thu reputation of the author will secure it a run. You will see it inflnituly s- lauded in all thu journals. You must receive these ,u panegyrics, however, rum grano lalii. Most unheard of efforts hare been made by tho groat master and hi* friends, to propitiate the press; and be assured that io whatever might have boon the merits or demerits of this grand opera, its unqualified laudation in thefeuilo letous of the Paris journals was quite inevitable. The '* house was parked for soveral nights, and even now a largo portion of It Is reserved each night for the friends ot the author and of the manager. You will ask, then, r what is the truu stato of the cuso in reference to this s long talked of composition ? " I.e Prophete" Is a grand opera in fivo acts. In its ~ style it bears a close resemblance to tbo " Huguenots," by ( tbe i ante master. It Is remarkable by an absence Of tan , takile. or, to use a morn common phrase, of thoso popular t melodies which seize on and captivate the popular car. Thu chief merits of tfiis composition lio in its orcbes" trai and choral effects, aud in the extraordinary skill ~ of its instrumentation. These aru the merits which e&nnot and will not be appreciated by the public in goneral. Even musicians agree that the work Is heavy, 0 allowing it ut the sumo time thu highest praise for those y qualities in which thu author lias been so distinguished. It is unquestionably a production which is listened to 1 a second tlmu with u feeling of uneasiness and impau tlencc. l.ike all good works, however, It will no doubt improve on repetition; and 1 have no doubt that when L heard so often as to render the music familiar to the ear, it will at length please tho musical public generally, * though, as I have said, I am curtain It will never become popular. .Anoth< r theatrical event Is tho production of tho new drama of the Kruncals, by Scribe, called "Adricn le Couvrour." All I'nrls bus goue distracted after this piece, and especially after the actiug of MUe. Kachel 111 it. The whole liou -e is taken every night by forestalled. mid up to thu preseut time tho stalls cannot be obtained under 40 or 00 francs. I shall be enabled , to give you a more full account of this In my next, I when the present furor subsides. These are the only theatrical events worth notice at r present. I may observe, however, generally, that tbo theatres are now well attended. Koncoui has a grant of thu Italian Opora until the end of the next season. I can. however, inform you that a project is afloat, which, if realized, will produce , at this theatre a most brilliant company next October, including the celebrated Jenny Llnd herself This project is to induce Ronoonl to resign, and to give a i concession of the theatre to Mr. Lumley, the proprietor of the (Queen's theatre, London, who will . thereby be enabled to combine the engagements for the two opera* of the two great European capital*, a plan which will be quite practicable, inasmuch as the opera in Tari* open* in October anil close* in March, when a* the opera In London opens In February or March, and clones in July. In our Iloinan news, we have the following anecdote : ?" The Geneva Colonel, Kllllct Constant, a superior oflicer, who distinguished himself In Switsorland, I having been named Minister of War by the Roman government, an honor which he deolined, asked the envoy who brought him thu nomination, ' Have you plenty of muskets?' ' No but we are going to send for 30,000.' 'But where will you get the 30,000 men who are to make use of them? Have you any cannon?' No! but we are going to cast them from the bells." 'That's well; but out of what will you cast the gunners?" ' A great sensation was produced here yesterday, by . the publication In the journals of some documents, ; which were found in tho searches made bv the police in the apartments occupied by some of the socialist | clubs. Among those is a programme of the decrees, ! which were to have been pa**ed as soon as a proposed insurrection should be successful. I The programme fucludes the following decrees :? | 1. To repeal the decree which abolishes the punlshI ment of death for political crimes. ! 2. To suspend payment of all debts and obligations for six months. 1 3.

To impose a charge of AOOOOf. on every passport grautcd to person* going abroad. 7. To abolish the salaries of the elergy of all denomi' nations. 8. To create an indefinite paper money with | forced circulation. 0. To disband the National Ouard, and organise a ! popular force from which all bankerspsmcrebants and j trsders should be excluded. ' 10. To prohibit and inflict excessive fines upon all reactionary journals. 11. To raise the red flag. A plan of proceeding to be adopted Immediately on the success of the insurrection, is also given, whieh eontains the following memoranda :? To shoot instantly nil the enemies of the republic. To shoot all individuals who may Interfere between the justice of the people and any guilty person, i To seize en the Ministry of the Interior, and lines ef telegraph, and iorbld nny one to leave the French territory on pain of death. To seise on the i'refectnre of Police the moment the insurrection is successful, and to shoot on the spot all the employees who shall be found therein. Every oDe demanding a passport after the success of insurrection, to be shot. The aristocratic quarter to be surrounded by the people and immediately purified. Purls, and all the towns of France, be declared in a state of seige. A11 dealers in provisions to be compelled to giva them in exchange for popular bens, which may be bad at the Mairies. All National Guards refusing to deliver ap their arms, to be shot. Besides a long catalogue/!* other i lasses of person*, who were to be subject to a like summary execution, it is stated in the legal journals that the extracts which have boon published from thoo document* contain by no incau* the worst of the project* of the Red party. lire report of the march of the expeditionary French forces from Civita V< cchia on Koine, is confirmed to' day.
