The royal speech then goes on to state that the [overnments of America and Sweden had nrinced their desire to co-ope rata with Great Briain on the subject of the repeal ot the navigaion laws; and, aAer alluding to some local topics, t gives a death blow to the advocates of monopoly in the articls of food, as follows:? Har Majeaty has great tatisfaetion ia congratulatlDgjou on tha improved condition of oommeroe and nanufaotarea.

The amendment was to the following fleet:? We regret, however, to be compelled humbly to rereeeat to your Msjeety, that, la many ptrts of tbe nited Kingdom, and especially In Ireland, tbe various lanees of your Majesty'a lubjeote connected wltn the ultiratlon of the toll, are laboring under Mrere dlsr*M mainly applicable.

In making his moon, his lordship gave a sketch ol the history of [ungary, and read a aeries of details connected ith the atrocities committed by Austria. He uched pathetically upon the murder of Count athyani, tiie successes of Bern, the revoition at Vienna, the renunciation by the Huaman Diet of allegiance to the House of ap*pnrg, ana ine ia\ueion of the kingdom by the uoeidOb, before whose number, and the treachery F her chosen chief, the people and valiant gen aU fell a sacrifice. He hoped that not only ould Kngland stand between the Czar and his ctimr, but thut means would be used to force is hordes back from the frontier, to their proper narters in the Kupsinn empire. Lord I'almereton, in reply, stated that he would , ace upon the table any p ipers bearing upon the abject, and he Bhould inform the House that it j as the intention of Ku^ia to reduce her army n the ltanube frontier from 4d 000 to 10,0<>9 men. | Lord l>udley Stuart asked if England was preired to protect the life of Kossuth against the inclinations of his enemies. Lord Claude Hamilton characterized the statelent that an attempt has been made on the life of le Magyar chief, a calumny on the government of ustria. A prolonged debate arose, in which the character [ the Hungarian chief was fully vindicated, and if past atiocicuj barbarity of the Austrian gorrnment denounced in no measured term*.

On Friday night, Lord John Russell gave a full (position of his views in regard to general coloial (olicy, in moving for a bill to regulate Au?traa. He concluded his speech by stating that the tirciples upon which the cokaal |?<-In*y of the goernment was foanded, were the maintenance of ie free trade system to the fullest extent The ministen have not yet avowed the line of nlicy they mean to pursue in regard to the North .meriran colonies; but it is pretty well understood j tat, should these colonies desire either to become i idependent States, or to annex themselves to the mted States of America, that no opposition will e oHer?d by Great liritwin to th' ir so doing, his feeling is ground* d upon the fact that these oloniea were sell-supporting ones.

Affairs of IwltMrlaad. THE EFFORTS OF RUSSIA AND AUSTRIA TO CRUSH SWITZERLAND. A joint note from Austria and Prussia has been addressed to the French cabinet, calling on the government to unite with them in obliging Switzerland to expel the revolutionary leaders who are there sheltered. Should France refuBe, those governments are determined on compelling the Swiss government to accede to their demands, even by an armed intervention, if necesaary. Tne Emperor of Russia, it is said, has accredited Count Storngnoft as Ambassador to Paris. The object of this appointment is to strengthen the reactionary party, and to consolidate Russian and absolutist influence in France. Another account says i? Austria has made a demand for the extradition of some Poles who have taken refuge from the severities following the late Hungarian troubles within the cantonments of Switzerland. The Swiss government has refused to surrender the refugees, except in caaea where it is clearly proved that the refugees have intrigued in politics, and otherwise misconducted themselves. In this position the cantonments are sustained by the French government. England will also, it is sn|>pos<d, sustain the Swiss in their position. Important from Greece.

Advices from Athens to the ltith and Wih ult. inclusive, state a serious rupture had taken place between the English and Greek governments, and that a total suspension of relations had taken place between the two governments.

Erfo, Greece is not likely to re- 1 ceive much aesictance in that quarter.

Head* wera then uncovered. 'lhe Preaident and Governor now atood up, and tba latter sung out 'alienoe," and ailenoe It waa. The Masons new rose and aang a hymn to the tune ef Old Hundred. Things began to look serious Tba gorgeoua dresses and fixing* of the Maaona of blgb and low degree? the lighted candle*, tbe aolemn strain aomIng up out of the earth?the copper bn* wu now placed OTer tbe top of the grave, In tba under corner-atone, where it waa to b? entombed. The Grand Secretary mounted tbe under (tone, and in very loud voloe rend what purported to be tbe inscription ent on tbe lid of the copper coffin; vii ?all about General Washington when he waa born, when he became a Mason, whan ha died, who was 1'reRident, &o , and a general history of the man ef thl* year. 81s high Maaona now mounted ?nd stoed on tbe lower stone, directly under the pon u?rous muss wnicu was 10 dm lei aown; ana wnite t&ey were lowering the copper bos into Its sepulohre, wits white cord*. T could not but relleot. bow particularly foolish they would feel if tbe rope waa to break, or even the steeple to pull out. Aa aoon as tbej got out of the way, tbe cap waa slowly lowered, tbe Mason* assisting to square It, and tbe oopper box waa Used forever. The Uiaod Chaplain then made a very fervent prayer, which I have not time to give yon. aa It was very long, though very good. Tbe Grand Secretary then read a llat of what bad been buried in the box. The sun now commenced shining, and gave new life to the proceedings. The mesons now sang a hymn to tbe tune of Auld Lang Syne. The Grand Maater pronounced the work properly done. A goblet of wine, a lot of wheat, and a cup (f oil, were spilt on the top of the stone. The Maaona all then made signs, crowed their arms on their breaata with a alap, then dropped their arms, sheathed tbeir aworda. and pasted tbe hammer of the Qrsnd Maater up to tbe orator. Mr. Scott. Thtt maiona then came out or the bola, and atood before the orator. Tbe orator spoke long ant particularly of Washington ?h a maaon. Hia speech was written lie spoks of the liovernor ai a mason. and aaid General Taylor was not isbnmed to take a maaon by tbe band and aay, " My jood fellow, bow are you f ' to him. The Governor then read a written speech about Virginia glory. Vlr> jinla eona, and Virginia beauty. He alluded to Tyler very prettily--no cheer*, lie alluded to Taylor, and they became deafening l and yet Tyler had tlie cense to surround himself with a atrong cabinet, and Taylor with tbe weskeat cabinet that God ever suffered to exist. Mr. Tyler we* looking remarkably well Tbe orator exhibited a bible which Washington used in 1762. He then held up before the people a pleoe of ailk which, be naid, Washington's mother put on him when be was baptized. He showed the record of the Lodge wbere Washington was made a master mason. aa,1 the marble mallet which be used when he etterwerd* be came a mesonlo mastvr. (General Taylor than maie a abort address, which was received with obeera. The artillery now began to Waso away, the band struck up - Yankee Doodle " while tbe Grand Lhepiein was proDounoing grace, and?all waa over. General Taylor waa then eacorted to hia botel, and is bow eating bis dinner thera. This evening he will attend the masonic ball and the theatre. To-morrow morning bright and early, we all statt for Weehlnston. If anything of Intareat occura belore we get off, I will rite you I do not think the reception ct the President here baa r>> rn what it ought to have been.
