The French ttuestlon. ALLIANCE BETWEEN HUMS IA AND THE I'NITED STATES, ETC. ETC. [From the Assemble* Nationals. of Paris. Oct. 6 ] It is impossible to believe that the difference between France and the United States can become serious. It is not on account of some hasty .notes, orwsrdsof bud education that two great States will break their iwlitical and commercial relations; but we cannot hut remark how much the choice of diplomatic agents influences the destiny of negotiations. In general, since February, the nomination of our agents to foreign countries has been made without reflection, and it is sullicient to travel a little, to perceive tncir objectionable demeanor? at one time thinking to surprise by a haughty language ; and at another, allowing themselves to be played on by more skilful diplomatists. The choice of agents is most iin^oriaut for the success of an affair. In that science, men make the things and characters, create difficulties, or remove them. The affair of the United .States will be arranged ; but it must not be for Rotten that the Cabinet of St. Petersburg ban beta, for many years, anxious for the alliance with Amtrua, and that the interest of the United States is, to hare u maritime position in the Mediterranean, similar to that which the English have at Malta, or in the Ionian Isles. Theirambitton could be satisfied by a great war for the division of the Ottoman empire. That is still distant in the future, but the policy of cabinets is preparing for it. | I'aria Cor. (Oct 7) of the London Times.] Wilh respect to the allair with the United States and tlie delivery of his passports to M. Pousain, I may be allowed to say one word as to the manner in which it appears to be viewed here. There is no question that the French government admits and regrets that language unbecoming diplomatic .A,,nu.ii l. ho.... h., ;.o k?> also believes that language of an equally, perhaps more, insulting nature, had been used towards M. Poussin; and, further, it is of opinion, that the demand made for salvage by the American captain, whose name 1 believe is Carpender, is most unusual on the part ol uu olHoer in the naval service 1 of any government. A captain of a man-of-war (I give the opinion entertained by the French government) never expects, or demands, payment 1 for having rendered ihe service mentioned iu the 1 present ce.-e. In a word, it hdmiis that there were groi'i relet tit deux cot in, hut does not approve of its agent entering into such a war of words. With regard to the line of conduct likely to be pursued by the French government, 1 believe that, beyond the ct sention (temporary, it is to be hoped) of diplomatic relations- nothing more serious will follow. I The cate m> far d'!Iers from that of Sir Henry l?ulwer and the Span1 h government, that there is now actually no American minister in Paris, nor was there at the moment the passuorts were delivered 1 to M i'oussin. Mr. Rush had been recalled pre- I vious to lie* occurrence taking place, and though Mr. Rives, the new iiiiiitMer, h is arrived in Paris, 1 believe he has not yt t presented his credentials, and, consequently, he is not us yet the recognised minu ter of the United States. Neither is it probable that the letters accrediting him to the French republic will be presented yet awhile, lie will, probably, wait lor further instructions from Washington. Should he not do so, and should he demand to be received by the President of the French republic, it is probable he would not be received until an understanding be come to on the subject of M. Fcueeiu. The Deigns or lluMla oil Turkey* [hrcui the London Sunday Times, Oct. 7.1 *?** * Meanwhile, it is right that the people of this country should not be inn-led respecting the chaacter ami policy of the Limpsror Nicholas. Certain writers affecting, to serve itisir own purposes, ex- I treniely moderate views, would fain have it thought . that though Prince Kadaivii threatened the enure J body of the fugitives with uiBt&nt execution, the ( Czar would practically prove much less lnhumin, and only st no the patriots to exile in.Siberia for life. ( Oar own opinion is that, as the grave would be a much safer place of exile than Siberia, it is to the grave that he would condemn ihetn. He cares ( nothing lor public opinion, except insofar as its ( gem rul expression may interfere with the devel- \ opement of bin policy. , Still, though intent on the gratification of his t vengeance, it is with far ether designs that Nicho- j las pursues the system ol insult towards the Sultan No one can be ignorant that in the archives of Russian ambition there are maps in which Turkey is included among the imperial provinces, or , that Constantinople lias not long been regarded merely ? the southern capital of Russia, wnen ever, theretore, trie moment arnvi-a which me j Czar retards es auspicious, lie will eei/.e at the ' 1st pretext which presents use If for puthiu his j conquests southwaid. Persia is already little | better then a Russian province, as our government is painf ully conscious.

We, consequently. believe that so long as |>olitital societies) shall endure, they will stand i iniuedol lltris and aimies lor their defence. At the preit ul moment it is well for us that we have 5 a fleet, and that a large section of it Is in the Medt- ' terra Mini; for, in what,\er way tfie question may he decided, you rm y rely upon it that the naval I forces of (>ieat Rrttatn will have much to do with the decteion. If the termination be pacific, it will j be so through fear of our naval power and if it be ! Warlike, that (tower; will have to he called into play to firing ii about. We cannot afford to lose a jot i of our influence. Not we are to aitn at greatness by wo^ hut thai we should ajways be ready to employ oflr military and naval forces in defence , cf our industry and civilization, otherwise, the influence of the peaceful arts would he ol short duration, for all the creations of our industry would be only so many baits to allure robbers to spoil us. The sword is the palladium of freedom and of national independence; and if there he a ay nation that refuses to pay it a sort nt civil worship, the date of that nation's servitude has been (iked, and it must s|>eedily be ohliterai?d from the catalogue Of independent Stairs. Up to tins moment, the Sultan his acted with equal spirit and prudence, under the influence, apparently, of the ambassador* of France and Knglu ml, w ho, w ithoiit llie authority ol their respective govt rntneuts, could not give him, the |toasittve assurance of military aid. Rut should he in, pursuance ol their counsel, bring down the vengeance of Russia in on his countiy, we are bound by the most acred of all Imp to rxeit nil the |>ower of Lngland in its defence. We must send Meet after fleet to the liosphorus ; we must bombard St. Petersburg; we must HUiihilate the Russian navy, commercial and imperial; we muat raise the cry of rebellion in Poland ; we mu-t scatter the germs of rsvolution through Russia itself ; and in this way may break up that detestable system of despotism which has long weighed upon esstern Kurope like the nightmare. There are no doabt these?and we are sorry to see M Ram*rune among the number? who imagine that, by critsio political combinations on the continent, < >rest Krttaincsn be reduced to ths condition of a satellite. We profoundly pity the gentlemen who entertain this notion. It is within our competence, for> , d or fur evil, to convulse the whole civtli/.rd world ; and at various occasions, which nerd not h- enumerated, we have done no. And let 11 not be lorgotten, (hat wnrn that waa the (im, we were far weaker than we are now. Our empire in the east has been enlarged and Strengthen* (I, our n?v?l force i* infinitely better organized and more compact, our opulence ha* been vaxtly increased, and our population at home and abroad ha* ni nind a |>ori> n'onn dfWloMMl.

[Krom tho London Observer, Get. 10.1 The returns of the quarter's revenae will be made up to Wednesday evening next, the 10th inat. So far aB can be judged, however, from the receipts of the quarter as they are now known, we believe that the result lor the quarter und the year wili be most satisfactory, as regards a comparison both wiih the quarter and with the year ending the 10th of October, 1818. We may commence by stating that there will be a small increase on the gross revenue for the quarter over the corresponding quarter of last year; and that, on a comparison ot the two years ending on the 10th ot October, 1848 and 1849, respectively, a similarly satisfactory result may be expected. That it is satisfactory and encouraging so to keep up to the standard of last year and quarter, is moat easily shown by a statement of the several receipts Tfte customs will show an actual decrease, as compared with the quarter ending the 10th ot Oc- , tober, 1848, of not less than from jE300,000 to ?400,000. This decrease, large as it looks on a single qusrter, is more than accounted for by con- , sidering what a large quantity of foreign corn has been imported in the corresponding quarter of last i year, just at the time when our own harvest was , not yet available, and when the distress and deficiency in Ireland were at their height. The loss, | too, of so large a proportion of the sugar and timber duties has had its due influence?an influence which, if we reason from all previous experience, , will be less and less felt every day. This ftllingoll in the customs, we are happy to say, is the only , apparently unfavorable item in the account, and is | more than made up by the actual prosperity of the i others. ; a lie excise win snow a grainy mix increasr, almost sufficient in itself to cover the temporary i falling off in the customs. This is the more satisfactory, when it is stated thut it arises from a ; comparison with a most excellent quarter last ( year. When it is considered that the condition of , excise revenue is so strong a criterion of the com- i fort of the working classes, this increased and in- i creasing improvement is beyond hII price. The stamps, which had so greatly fallen off dur- i !? Ihe check to commerce and trade last year, exhibit a most remarkable activity, and will yield , an increase of not less than ? 100,000 over the Oc- | tober quarter of 1818. The atxes will also show a small increase. The Post Office too, will add its most instructive evidence to the increased activity of trade, by showing an improved net revenue of A'100,000, , in spile of the heavy expenses incurred in order to give enlarged accommodation to the public in ' town and country. The increase in the property-tax will also appear with its most decisive evidence in favor of the,irn- 1 provement of the general prosperity over the depression of the corresponding period of the last ' year. I Upon the returns of the yenr ending the 10th of 1 October, 1S48, and the 10th of October, 1819, res- ! pectively, it may he sufficient to remark that they will exhibit a comparison not very materially dif- ! fering from the comparative statement of the corresponding quarter, which we have given shove. 1 The customs will show a decrease from the same ' causes which we have already pointed out, and which were tHken into account when the changes in the tariff were made. The only difference between (tie calculations and the actual result is, that the calculations were made on the safe side (as they ought to tie) and that the depression is not as gr< at as was expected. The taxes, stamps. Poet Office, and propertytax, will all show most gratifying proof of increasing prosperity in the returns tor the year. The ' above items comprise what is called the ordinary revenue, and, not being subject to casualties, are 1 ordinarily reckoned the tests of the national pros- \ perity. The sales of stores, crown lands, and miscellaneous, vary so mu?di according to circumstances which Hre wholly casual, that they are not ! taken much into account, although they serve, as 1 far as they go, to balance a quarterly or an annual account. It may not he out of place to remark, in reference to the receipt of the revenue, that the nation- . ul expenditure has been, mid is, iu process of conriderable reduction, and that both the imports and exports of the country exhibit an increase nnd an activity that must he attended with the most decisive aud beneficial results in every point of view. The Ct ivaiiii Line of Packets.?The Timet, on the Uih insiimt, described the origin of the Peninsular and Orient.) Steam Navigation Company, and its various contracts with the government, as detailed in the evidence recently issued on the contract packet service. The nam" pa|?er ulso gives some import ant particulars ot the Huston and Halifax, or t'unard Company ?The contract for this line was first advertised in November, 183f. Uj>on that occasion two tenders were received?one front the (Ireat Western Coml?ny, whopro|>osed to go once a month to Halifax only, and to provide three vessels of 330 horse power, for ?4o,000 per annum; the other from the St. Ceorge's Steam Packet Company, who proposed to go once a month from Cork to Halifax for ?45,1 ^ (it ?65,000 If New York ware included) with vessels of 2>0 horse power, the engagement to be for seven years. Neither of these was accented, and subsequently a proposition was made by Mr Cunard. He submitted that by going once a week, the whole of the letters would be carried by the steamers, and the American liners would ! cease to take them, and he ollered to do this at less than half the sum per voyage required in either of the lenders. An agreement was made with him in the first lustance to go twice a month to Halifax and Hoston, with vessels of 3"0 horse power, for ?W),(Kj0. This contract was f<>r seven years. It conirneneed July 4, and the terms were af- j ditional vessels and larger size being required? .^uhsetpiantly it was found that New *i oik romi>anies were* eslabliohing lines, and Mr. Canard then I rrsM-d the government to fulfil the omnnal |)Un ol once n week. Ilia existing contract contained n elauae that upon an extension of the service to four times a month, the same rate in proportion should bei.nid; but the government considered ?00,000 a sufficient sum hi addition to ihe ?8A,000 already payable, and a ten years' contract was accordingly i entered into in 1*16 for a weekly mail for ?145,- l 000; not, however, until a delay had taken place, during which American lines had been formed, which will now increase and divide the traffic, both aa regards passengers and letters. From the first organization of this line, government got back in |?'?t8g? aa much hs they paid, and the receipts have steadily increased. The service i* now performed every week from Liverpool to llalifax.snd thence to New York and Boston alternately, the average s;>eed being II knoia, and the vessels in use being 1,860 tons snd 700 horse power, instead of 300, ss in the original contract. Additional vesf-ela are at present building, which will he 2,050 tons, and Htm horns power. The company are at liberty to go to New York without going to Halifax, and, according to Mr. Cunard, they will probably do so as soon us th>* powerful omiosition vessels now prepsring st New York shall have commenced running The Bermuda contract, which is a branch of the Halifax line, had existed for 25 or 3D years by anihng vessels, the annual payment bring ?4,400, and for a year past it has been conducted by screw steamers on the same terms ? Their average speed ia about 8 knots, snd they perform the passage between Halifax and Bermuda, which occupies from 3fc t? 4 days, twice a month The vesnrls are between *0 and ?0 horse power, the stipulation in the contract heing that they shall not be irM than ou norse power.

The general commerce of France, which embraces all cur intercourse with foreign co jntries, whatever Iw the origin of the goods imported or the destination of those exported, turned, in 1*48, on an otficial Valnt of 3,OI5.(nn,OOOf, being a decraase of flftftfOO.OOOf , or 2:1 |?-rcent on the results of the i preceding )ear' As regards the special commerce, 1 which only concerns the merchandise imported tor mil consumption and the national goods rip <rted ? 1 a trade which more directly interests us?the deo tease is still p.-eater; the siwcial commerce of 1P4* amounted to I,J4S*?,t*K*,Biw?f, which exhibits a t tiling < H, as i ompana ?tth l-t7, of 2t> per cent.

The dtllerence, as compart d with I <47, is lit per?ei t as regtr^-s the import*, and 6 o- r cent, a* regards the expatta. This decline of 43 per cent., (or nearly one moiety of the import* > attests the sufferings exi?erienced by our mauufa ? turing industry. It is known, in fact, that the goods imported chiefly cousist of raw materials which we manufacture in France. Thus, for elample, the im|K>rts of silk have fallen from 76,000,(XHJf to 88,000,000f only; woollen goods, from 30,000,000f. to 13,000,0nut. ; oleaginous seeds, from 34,000,OOOf. to ll,(X)0,0O0f. ; undressed skins, from 25,000,OOOf. to 16,000,OOOf.; unwrought iron, from 14,000,000f. to 6,000,OOOf ; zinc, from 5,000,OOOf. to 2,000,000. The consumption of colngial sugar has declined from M.OOO.OOOf. to 30,000,OOOf. It would be impossible to calculate alt the losses which have been consequent on the suspension of the industrial movement?losses te the manufacturer, whose matirul remains unproductive, and losses to the operative, who barely worked one day out of two. The ex)>orts have sustained a reduction fur less considerable than the imports. The difference, as we have shown, is only 6 per cent. This result is explained on the one hand by the action of the tem|K>rary premiums which were granted on the exports of our manufactured produce, and on the other hv the sacrifices which our manufacturers imposed on themselves in order to make an outlet for the goods which encumbered their magazines. Our exchanges have declined?viz , by 16 per csnt with the United States of America, 16 with Sardinia, 21 with Spain, 2f with lielgium, 30 with the German Zolleverein, See The only increase is noticeable in our trade with Fnglsnd and iht- Swiss Republic. Our colonial trade nits fallen oil'by 14 per cent. Our transit trude has not suffered less. The carrying of foreign produce across ihe French territory amounted to a weight of 351,000 quintals, against 050,000 in 1847? equivalent to a decline of 10 per cant. As to the maritime movement of France with the colonies and with foreign countries, it has declined from 1,146,000 to 1,005,0iM) tons?equivalent to 27 per cent. The foreign tlug, however, has suffered to n greater extent than the French. In concluding this sad enumeration, we may state that the produce of the Customs' duties was in 1"IS less by 18,000,OOOf. than in 1847. Our colonial sugar figures for l!l,000,0()0f. ; woollens, for 4.000,OOOf ; uuwrought iron, for3,000,OOOf; coffee, for2,000,OOOf.; olive oil, for 2.000,OOOf , vVc. In Paris alone, the falling off of the Customs'receipts was nearly 50 per tent. The Corn Trade of Uiigland. f Kroiu the Loudon Mercantile Utmll*, Oct 12 ] The weather has throughout the we?k been highly auspicious for the conclusion of the northiii harvest, and so much progress has been made, lliat Utile grain now remains abroad, even in ihe backward and mountainous districts. Meanwhile lite reoorts, in reference to potatoes, are not quite >o bad as was expected would, ere now, h ive been the case : in Ireland the disease is certainly more general than on thiaside of the channel, still u considerable proportion of the crop turns up comparelivciy sound, anil as far as digging has hitherto been proceeded with, the result has, in our opinion, proved belter than at one period we dared to hope. That we have more food of home growth, for man and beast, than in good average seasons, we feel peti'ectly satisfied; and though the extra produce will not go far towards_ compensating our farmers for the extreme depression of prices, still they are belter ofl than they could have been if unfortunately our harvest had turned out us deficient as in 184". It is not so much the productiveness or deficiency of' our own crops which will in future rule prices here, but the extent of the foreign importations: these have latterly been, and seem lik'-ly to conliuur, very liberal : and (Hough the value of corn may perhaps rise a little whiTst farmers ere busy with sowing, still we can discover no ground to calculate on a permanent or important improvement. The character of the trade has undergone very little change since our last. At some of the runners' markets, where no stocks of old are held, slightly enhanced terms have in partial instances been realized, whilst at some of the large consuming tow ns in the north the turn has been slightly in favor of the purchaser. At Mark-lane business bus remained very quiet. Up to the close of lis r. rri\ uir niii>uin ti'HBiwnr wrrr iwi'i iiy giiuu but unce then the receipts have been small. Fine while Kt-t-ex wheat was in (air request on Monday, and realized prices quite equal to ihnae previously current; secondary sorts and red did not acll so freely, and before the Kent stands could be closed, factors found it necessary to make Borne little concession. On Wednesday there was scarcely anything f'rethup from the neighboring counties, and the fhow was eiiually small this morning. The millers have c< nernlly conducted their operations with a yuod deal of caution; hut telly have not succeeded in buying on easier terms than in the beginning of the wri ek. 1 luring the week ending Saturday last, we had very liberal receipts of wheal from abroad, but the supplies have fallen off. A eonsidernhle portion of the recent urrivalafrom abroad has gone direct into the fianda of our millers The experiment of importing their own wheat is not likely to prove advantageous to our hotne manufacturers, meat of that which lias lately come to hand from Hant/ic, Arc., having cost nearly as much free on hoard hs it is now worth in our market. The transactions have, throughout the week, been on a retail arale, the local inquiry having been decidedly alow, and but few country purchasers having made tin ir appearance. In tins state of affairs, quotations have undergone little or no change. The busiuess done on Monday last, was on terms precisely similar to those currept on th it day se'nnignt, and not the slightest variation haa occurred since then. 1'olisn Odessa has excited more attention than Baltic qualities; the finer kinds o| the former, besides possessing great sttength for tniAinp, have been otlered ecru,' irativt ly lower than linstock and similar sorts. The nominal top liuomimii ui ni.ui una unuri|(iiar no change, and ?-nip samples have been mostly held Ht pre vtoua prices. fcnglish bnrley has come sparingly forward, and the malting w*m>d having commcnced, full terms linve hern realized for the finest qualities. On Monday the bent samples sold at from :tt)n. to H2h per quarter. and the lew lot* rxhibitrd thin morning were held at the rate* named. Business in foreicn hurley has not been by any nieHna extensive; (food heavy grinding aorta have been steudily at 21s. to 22a , and fine .Haile at 25-t to 26a. per quarter. We heard of no sales of the latter either to-day or earlier in the week. The supplies of new oata from Ireland have been rather increased, and from abroad the receipts have continued on a liberal scale. Superior corn, whether el in rii?- or of foreign growth, nan been held firmly, and needy buyers have been under the necessity of paving previous |IMM| inferior and ill-conditioned Irish antl foreign oata have in some cases been parted with at an abatement of (id. to la. per quarter on last Monday week's MfNMf New hnglixh beans have come to hand freely, and the turn has been in favor af the buyer. Grey and maple pease were offered at 27*. to 29. per quarter on Monday, and new white boilers at IXla. to 112* per quarter, and since then no difficulty haa been experienced in buying at the terms mentioned Wr have heard of no sales of floating cargoes of Indian corn; holders have asked full (erma fur the article.

Indier, with the addition of all the costs and charges , incident to its coining out to this country On the f other hand, an American can obtain just the same books, at a price very much less than is charged , by the London publisher. It this stute of things ' really benefitted the author, there might, |>erliaps. be an excuse for its continuance.

Hut the uncertainly winch attends the restrtc* tiou is another great evil. It does not apply to any hook, until the Cuuudian custom house authori1 ties have heen notified that it is duly copyrighted. In the case of a large number of works this nutiflf cation is not made, and our booksellers are, of t course, at liberty lo import American editions. Jn the case of other woiks, it is not made till after a long interval. From these circumstances, it h?i>s pens not unfrequeutlv, that our booksellers give p their orders to die New York publishers while certain works aie tree, but before they receive them n fresh mail has arrived, and notified the custom house that the works ordered Hre copyright.
