In the case of Mtellio .Somat hi ? w - demanded for haviag tortured a Jititi-h ,.ur... <though it afterwa.ds turned out. on ! o>, that no torture had ever been inth< ?i. : t noble lord then passed in review the < of toe ! anionic, and that of the i jonian governn u. 1 declared that it w.m dimcult to argue?m li claim- for compensation its those against (freece in a manner, wearing, asthey did, inc. the mpt-ar-toce of a tradesmen s tj((a than a national ii? vance. He must, how''ever, express bis indignation th-tt cat of such insignificant questions should arise the risk of an .European war I'll modest demand maile by Mr. Finlay, for s piece of l.uid which cost him 300 I . drachmas, was 40,000 drachmas, or ?1,500; yet, ' while the British government were laying papers, with reference to tins demand, ou the table of their .Lordship' House, it was aware that Mr. Finlay's claim had heen willed r>> arbitration with his consent. The noh'e lord described such conduct as a breachW faith on the part of the government, and as tampering wiili tie ir lordships'1 confidenee. With regard to the claims of M P.icifico, he ridiculed, amidst the laughter of the House, the accuracy with which the furniture of M. Pacifico's house had been specified, lie pointed out the extraordinary absurdity of the British government insisting on the payment of ?21,000, for alleged claims against Portugal, which the government of that country had declared not ti he worth one farthing, and remarked, in indignant terms, thit the British Sovemment had pressed for the payment of all its emands on Greece in ,-.i, ami had scat its fleet to enforce that payment within twenty-four hours. He then described the course which the questions thus raised letwr-n ihis country and Greece had followed, and how fUe tgtttf of M. Pacifico's claims had interfered with a settlement, lie bore testimony to the noble ,,nd dignilied conduct of the Greek government, who were unable to resist, anil whose sufferings had excited the sympathy of Bf.urcjie. Mr. \X'yse and Admiral P;.,ker had only acted according to their instructions, and he was aure that the latter would rather have been engaged in the ino-t denrtly contest of an honorable warfare, than in such transactions. The noble lord, in eloquent term-, contrasted the tone of the Knine ror of Russia's ieiisr on the Greek question, to liis renre .enia'ive in tin- country, with that which .Lord Palmers'oii had thought fit to adopt to the defenceless goveri in* hi oil ?ieece. He reminded the House that fiance, though she desired to Tursv a must trie uu, course ef conduct towards inglund, had he' o alienated by the treatment wmch she had received. The question of the island of HaoirmsM was one on which the British .government had no light to act independently of the other protecting powers ; and now that Russia had protested on the subject, he i>up;>os"d the claim i which had been made would he withdrawn. The rrder to take forcible possession of the island, how ever, had not been rescinded, and bad only not l>een executed, because Admiral i'arksr ana Mr. Wyse had had more discretion than Lord Palmerston. Hi; thought that hr had made out the |M>inU stated in his motion ; and if they had been guilty of injustice?if they had mule extravagant detuandi?if they had oppressed the weak and disgusted the stiiuiu?it Iceanie that House to show that (he governiuri t of l.ngltnd was not Knglund. In a strain of the highest eloquence, ha called on the Hou.se to vindicate ilir authority of a great nation, prostituted hv <ui attempt to enforce unjust demands upon a weak and d? fenceless State. The Maioji is or Lt\>uo?,v., in reply, acknowledged that the ( oveuuueiil was responsible for the transactions which the noble bird bad brought tinI der review, but hi the House of Common*, Lord Palmereton had been subjected to no attack* u|Hin the matter hi question; and he hoped m satisfy their (ordsiii|is that ihe speech which I?rd Stanley had f made, was ind? (?t, d much more to tlie rhsiiieuce of the speaker than ta its intrinsic merits. lie disputed entirely the soundness ol the resolution before the House, in (sunt of inteinational law. He pointed out that injuries to the persons and properties Of l'ntlsh subjecls Hbroad b.ni always been held to justify a peremptory demand for redress, and that without reference to whether the government of . the country'where the injuries were sustained, was an absolute monarchy, a constitutional monarchy, or^a republic.

Coming to the main point ol the nobis lord's siieecll ?he expressed his iti.il Lord Stanley hn?l con| d'-nrrnded to hiui k M 1'acilico's character. Whatever that char hi ?r might tie, it had nothing | whatever to no wnb th* ques ion Mr. Wilkea . m.ght have h?-i it a giuiM>r,*aitd cheated at play, 1 vet the priur'ple* which were associated with lua naaie wen u?t coni|iroiiiised thereby. In the same wat. Lord Stowell had pronounced many splendid diro-i'me on pnintsot law, evolving great and impmtHni tfuiha. though the people ts whom hia judgments eferred were manv of them lave dealers, pi rati r -nd adulterers. The noble I lord bad ri l? rr- d to Mi Kinlay'e case, but through the influence of the i rreek (Government the arbitrators had ncvei hern alb wed to meet, anil the writers on interne'.ion- 11 w drcl ?red that a delay was s bad as a denial of rn'iee. Again, in the case of the rohhers chisisiiq , t. k cu-tom-house in order to carry on ? s\ -tein fori bin lermg Ionian subject*, fce reminded the h< thai Sir Kdmund Lynns' letrer to the < ir- i'k govern nent on that subject bad never been sn-wetnl M I'acifico's claims had been made to he r* U government in general f terms, to prevent iiieoavenu nor, if that government raised no unreio nnsble objection. .Subsequently to the dishonest hi ts which the noble lord had alluded to, M I'aedico Imd been a consul under the Greek oiivrrniTii.nl hii.I he h I I m inueh resoect for that I government to believe that it would employ in I inch an i>(lirf n umn of improper character. The ft claim* which hail been m-de main Greece had re1 reived the sanction of the cabinet, and the house Would not, therefore, he ho|xtd, consider them so exaggerated and unj i?t us the nohle lord had described them As to the feeling of Russia on the j euhject, he attributed it to an impression that the 1 claims against (ireec hud been too suddenly enI forced, and with too hort notice. He justified the etn" nloynient of so l.trge a force under Admiral I'arker. lie emphatically denied that the amity betweenRus ia ami iho country h >d > n dot irbed.and de< l.ued that the roiiuiiiiioiy ot fe- litig, especially with reference to all questions connected with the North of Europe, never stood higher than at the present moment. With reference to the p issing cloud which i obscured for a moment the relations of friendship I between this country and Francs, he trusted it I would Boon pass away lie expressed hia regret I that the ooaveation concluiled with M. l>rouyn He ' Lhttja had not reached Athens in time to prevent the renewal of reprisals. Complications had unfortunately arisen, i nd had bees going on for MM I w e.

I ' Lord AWftMBft did net think that the question I ?b? fore the House required any elaborate demonI Miration The recent proceedings in the Greek II waters had excited one universal cry of indtgnaI tfon throughout Lurope. The equity of Mr rue la)'*, ami that uf M Pacitico, never was denied l<y ?if.-<-cf, aa funnelling (iroper aubjec's of reh-r- !.< <* tn On* judicature of that country, yet it ( ti n! iM'en ri-|iri'M-nted tint there h id been a denial , of jo*lire With reference to the claim put forih , to the inland* i.f Sd|>ieuza and Cervi, the noble i Marquis had iriveu no answer to the arguin-nts of t i laird Stanley Since the fleet under Admiral i Parker started from KngUnd, it had been I employed hi little t !* At reflected credit on f this country. At Lisbon and Naples it excited ? the suspicion* of the governments, and though p it arrivt it nt riv Ionian Island* after the insurree- _ ti?>u, a i apply <>f naval " cats" for the torture of the ^ isl tnd'-rs were seut on shore from it. The entry r into the 1> inline lies was hoaated of as having I Drought the Kmperor to his senses, but tlte Km- p peror I . J previously acquiesced in the interpretation c of the Turkish treaty iu question, and her majesty's r g 'Vernnieiit had been obliged to apologize to the " Kmperor for entering the 1) irdanellcs, and had ? promised to do so no more. He charged ministers with huvinu so ught, >11 acceding the good offices of t France, to put its plenipotentiary, Daron <?ros, in * the jxisiiioii of a sherifTs oflicer. The French J,' government had recalled its ambassador in conse- ? quence ol the in inner in which it had been treated, * yet her majesty's ministers went on haggling with ? it, to the i?ient iuju.-y of the good understanding a which onyht to exist between two such great na- s dons. When he looked at our relations with J Kuto|>e generally, he found them in an unpreee- r1 dented condition. There was a time when this 11 country wsb respected and loved by all the great continental nations ; but how was it now ! lie r| could not congratulate the noble Marquis on the u novel friendship which he found existing with o Russia. A'taina had been deeply lniured bv the tl influence which had been exercised by us in Pied- J mom. We might have prevented the Piedmonteae f war, and we might also have pursued a policy 11 which would have rendered the occupation of B Hungary by the Russian troops unnecessary. The ?, nations of the continent fortunately separtted the t] conduct of her mijesty's government from the tl feelings of the English people, and he was mire p ! 'hat there was not one member of that house who U had listened to Lord Stanley's speech who could ri ay his hand on his heart, and say that every word P of it w. s not strictly and literally true. Lord Carmuan was deeply impressed with a t sense of the danger to which this country was ? exjKised by the state of its foreign relations, lie p had the greatest respect for the courage and ta- p lents of the noble lord at the head of the Foreign ci iVpmtment, but feeling the isolated position in ? which the country was placed by the policy of R that department, he would give his hearty support "j to the motion before the House. 1 Lord Ward defended the conduct of the govern- * rnent, and of the noble lord at the head of the Fo- c, reign Department, and complained that the ques- w tion before the House had been greatly prejudged tl and misrepresented. hi Lord Pkacxiont announced his intention of tl voting against the motion, and rose to protest >' against some of the doctrines to which Lord Stanley hnd given utterance. He criticised the preli- " nunory proposition the noble Lord's motion?a proposition which the noble lord himself had found it j, necessary to qualify in the course of his speech, ti ID contended that (ireece, being an independent tl nation, there was no necessity for consulting any ri other power in a quarrel with her, however politic " it might be to do so. Ueferring to M. Paciftco, ?' the noble lord admitted that he nad no respect fur *' him, and that he had put forward very exagge- P' rated claims, but the House ought to consider nun hh an injured individual, to whom redress had been i, refused when applied for to the proper legal autho- n rittes at Athens. ltoth to Mr. Finlay and M. tl Pacifico there had been a complete dental of jus- In tice: and after a review of all the questions in ' dispute between the two governments, he declared Tl that there was no course left for this country to j* pursue except to employ force. He characterized the motion as an un-Knglish and hostile motion, 7 and he hoped the House would reject it. u Viscount Canni.no admitted that the conduct of tr the ureek government nail been evasive and equi- < vocil, hut it did not follow that because the Greek tl government liad done wrong, the Government of 1? this country had done right. He pointed out the '' stronu obiections to which the mode of dealing ^ wilh Mr. Finlay's and M. Pacifice's cases was open lt' in point of international law. He also drew atten- 0I tion lo tlie cape of the Ionian subjects plundered by robliers, and showed lhat there, too, the law of na- e< tionn had been violated by the manner in which ti the government had demanded redress. lie re- t< untitled the House that there were other countries 11 in the world nearly as powerful, and much less 81 scrupulous *1 the exercise of th'-ir power than ours, i antl that these countries would probably make a A disastrous use of the example which had thus been > si t theni. b Lord Ktintsm uT, like the preceding s|>eaker, re- u viewi d ? ach of the claims put forward against the I Greek government, contending that in the aggre gate at leant the refusal of them justified measure! 11 of reprisal. In supi>ort of his view he 4?ot?d c?r. r tain despatchea of the Karl of Aberdeen addressed c to the Knglish Minister at Athens, as showing the r language which the government of that day hold ? to the adminiitration of King Otho. < The Karl of Hardwickk felt satisfied that Admi* p nil Parker hail not stated to th<" government that li he had t>een compelled to enter the Dardanelles by T ?tr< es of weather. J; Lord Brohduam, having listened very attentive- ' ly to the discussion, thought he might take a very ^ short-sighted view of the question, and say that it d>'t not matter whether the British or the Greek , government were right or wrong. Regarded in * that light, the British government might be com- a pared to a man who went into chancery for ?100. r The government did worse, for it went into chan- h eery Tor claims which were worth nothing. He a denied mat the government had international law ? upon its side; and it was frmhtlul, he said, to think to what an extent war might rage all over the ,, wot Id, if such doctrines as ho had heard rashly u put forth in the House that evening, were to lw- r, come established. He hoped th?ir lordship# would b tlo justice to themselves in the public opinion of tl Kurope, |?y shaking themselves t'rse from the re- " cent procfdintf* in Grffce. lie continently ei- | iw-eted they would do so, and in saying thin he '' bore l*-Htimoriy to the Krc.it ability and the peace- # ful sentiments ol Lord l'al m? rMnii.

I < >ur advices from Lisbon are to the 9th ultimo, tl inclusive. A correspondent at Lisbon says:? According to new* from Washington, the American j rlalm* np"ii Portugal w?ro to be considered by Congress belore being pa-h*d to rupture l>et?n?n th* . two countries; ami it i* therefore prt bable that Mr. '' Clay, the Charge d'Affaire* here, may not demand hi* > p?-?port and rtnbnrk on board a frigate. which he had e 1 pee ted to rail here I should suppose that many ? circumstances connected with the different claim* a would Injure the Amerioan governrasnt to adopt tha R propoeal of arbitration, although it may be right in j mine of the question* under diepute. According to an Oporto letter of the 9th, there was no |>oliiical news. The weather had set in tine u and warm, hut the late inclement storms had affected, to a serious degree, the growth of wine in the Oporto and Iteirnna districts. Shipments were rather slack. A great uncertainty existed regarding the continuance of the indirect sfii|anents to America, say England by way of America, and the Government had published a decree on the 29th ult., winch effectually stopped indirect shipments, but it was framed in such a manner that the interest of the direct shipper of wine for the supply of the j American market would lie seriously affected, as by the decree in question the shippers sending wines to America would have to give bond to the (iporto custom-house that the wines so shipped should not be ri|>orted after being landed in America, within a given time, ? control which no wine merchant could have over his customer in the foreign market. A representation had been made to the government by the Commercial Association of ()j?orto, praying a temporary suspension of the decree, and until the answer was known, shipments direct and indirect to London would lie paralyzed. The news of the decree created great excitement, hut it was generallylsupposed that those vessels which had cargoes engaged for America, would tie allowed to complete their loading on the old system. < hln*.

(!re?t quantities of ice are generally looked for by the traders in those i>arts of the Atl rutic, about the months of April and May, the result of the breaking ugof the frost in the Arctic seas, and driven down to the southwarJ by the force of the currents. The masses that have appeared this season, exceed anything of tha kind that has for years 1 been met with. They havo beenimmense, rwiih ; of ice, many miles in extent, towering up in all m tuner of forms, to a very gieat elevation, have swept | the waters of the Atlantic, and there is too much 1 reason to fear that the losses appended form a very few of the mishap* that occurred. The ill-tated vessel, in which so many are believed to have perished, was frein Londonderry, bound to Quebec.? Ten daya prior to her being discovered entangled in the ice? the twenty-seventh of April?she was spoken with by the master of the Oriental, from Liverpool. IShe was scarce of water, having had boisterous weather, Hnd on account of the number of passengers seen on deck, it was supplied her. On the 27th, the Oriental was beset in the ice, together with two other vessels, and perceived her some 10 miles to the westward. .Site was in a most perilous iKisiiion, evidently stove in by the ice, and sinking. Signals of distress were hoisted without the remotest chance of gaining assistance. For two days she was seen in the same forlorn condition, when she suddenly disippcared, and very little doubt is entertained of every soul having gone down in the foundered vessel. Subsequently a great many bodies were seen intermingled with _he ice, together with some prrtion of the cargo ; "lie latter led to the discovery of the port to which i "he veaeel belonged and her intended destination. 1 The Oriental was eleven days before she got clear . of the ice. Another similar catastrophe was wit- ; | nessed on the 2Pth of M uch, about 20 miles to the westward of St. Paul's, by the ship Signatte I M. Mowatt, from Alloa for Quebec. The vessel I was apparently an Lnglish brig, heavily laden, with painted portholes, fdie had got lixed in the iee, and had been cut down by it to the water's edge, admitting a rush of water into her hold, ller crew were observed working at the puinps, evidently in the hopes of keeping her atloat in the expectation of assistance ; alas, however, she soon sank, and all on hoard met with a watery grave. The exact number who perished was not learned. ; Letters have been received communicating the to- j tal.lossof the (istensible al so in the ioe. She wan from Liverpool, bound to Quebec, with several passengers. Up to the 5th of May, she experiencea heavy weather, when they fell in with an enormous field of ice, and got fixed in it for five days and nights, in the course of which her hull was pierced by the huge fragments, and she became a lost vessel. Pumi* were kept going till the arrival of the brig 1 >uke. Cant. Welsh, also for Quelle, which, after considerable working, succeeded in making through the ice to the sinking vessel, and rescued the whole of them from an iuevi:ible death. The Ostensible went down within 20 minutes after. Two other vessels from Liverpool, the Conservator and Acorn, were both lost near the same time. The former was on a passage to Montreal. She got pinched by the ice, within three daya after losing sight of land, and tilling, immediately went down|; lite crew were lucky enough to save the ship's boats, in which they were picked up. The Acorn met with her destruction within 30 miles of St. John's, Newfoundland, the crew were saved by the iilepsing schooner, of Sunderland. Among the [other losses in the ice are enumerated, the Ilihernia, from Glasgow for Quebec; the British schooner Collector, from St. John, Newfoundland, for London ; the brig Astrea, of Weymouth; the Wiihelmlna, of Aberdeen ; the Gosncll, of Newcastle ; the Sylph, of Lcith : aud three others, names of which are unknown. With the exception of the latter the crews were saved. Most of the unfortunate vessels were heavily laden, and their losses in total cannot be far short of ?100,0U0. Important Marine Case. AI'MIKALTY COt'KT ? THK CHARI.K3 BARTUTTT VS. THE KTKAMKR KUKOI'A?COLUMON. stroaa dr. li'iniwtm. [From the London Shipping <i aiette, June IS] This was a cause of damage promoted by the maMer aud owners of the bark Charles lUrtleit, and her cargo, ne?in?t the ?i<-uiner Kuropa, for having ruu Tier down th?? 27th June last. The bark, of the burthen of 450 tons, laden with iron, lead, Arc., and having on board one cabin jiassenger and 102 steerage pabseogers, was bound from London to New York ; the steamer, of the burthen of 1,NH) tons, with engines of tiOO horse power, and carrying the mails, was on her voyage from Halifax aiiaUuitcd States, to Liver|>ool. The proceedings si-k viMiouciia V7 ?i>. ?" i'nt mode of plea and proof 1 he libel given in on i>eu?ir .? Charles Bartlett, alleged that, on the day in question, she was in the track for outward an.I homeward-bound vessels passing to and from America, and at a greut concentrating point for both; that in the afternoon there was a dense fog, and the bark was heading N. W. by N., close hauled on the larboard tack, with all requisite sail set, and going four and a half to five knots an hour; that all work was suspended on Iioard, ! order to keep a cood look-out. About halfpaat three o'clock, I*. M , the wiml being W by iN , iiiul the sen smooth, in lat. SO 18 N., aa<l long. 2? W., m the miii? parallel of latitude with Cat*- Clear, and 7<NI nnh'a distant from it, the master heard a rumbling noisa to windward, like diatun t thunder, and the crew saw the steamer, at a distance of UN) yards, steering K. 8. K., one point forward of the bark's beam, and going twelvn knots an hour. Tits master of the bark instantly ordered the hall to be rung, and the helm to lie put hard a-port. The hark fell oil' a point and a hall', hut the Bteanier having first starboarded and then (torted her helm, without stopping her engin-s, came stem on into the hark, striking her abreast the main shrouds, in consequence of which she sank in a minute and a hail, and bki ol the passengers and crew were lost. The responsive allegation brought in on la-half of the Kuropa, admitted that the acrident occurred in the usual track for steamers, but alleged that it was two or three degrees to the north of ths usual track for s tiling vessel*. It dented that there was a concentrating point in the Atlantic, and alleged that the Kuropa, in the then stata of the weather, could not be seen bv the bark at a greater distance than from 1-jS) to 200 yards, but averred that the noise of the paddlewheels might have been heard in the direction of the hark three or four miles, and that it was ovting to some negligence that the bark was not thereby warned of the abroach of the steamer. It fur ther alledged that the bark having been reported by the man on the forecastle, at the distance of from IM to 2iN) yards, the third mate ordered the helm to be startamrdrd, but m the same breath, beforr the order wm or could be obeyed, he revoked it, and directed it to be put hard a-|>N8t, which was instantly done. The engines were ordered to be *tO|>ped, but the order had lieen anticipated by the engineers, and they were nut of gear, so that Ix-fore the collision the ste truer had come up to the wiad a point and a half. The Charles lUrtlert was going from five and a half to six knots an hour, having all DOM sails set, and had neglected to fire guns, blow her fog-horn, or nog her bell at short intervsl", so that those on board the steamer could be cognizant of ner approac n. i ne eviaence aunuceu in ?Mp|M>n in these pleas was extremely voluminous, an.I in many reapecta exceedingly contradictory. The estimated low# wi* ?I2,<M). j Pr L'*?i?otoh said?Ib conjunction with the gentlemen by whom 1 am aMtstml, we have con- 1 Hidered til the point* in thin case which I suggested aa necessary to l?e determined, and I trast th it | there ha* been no oniiamen aa to any one of th?m. We have come unanimously to the following determination:?That no rate of nailing by steamer*, or other vessels, can be Mid absolutely to be dangerous; but whether any given rate is dangeious or not, must depend on the cir< umstanci-* or each individual case, as the state of the weather, locality, and other similar fact*. That the rate of I2| knots an hour, in a dense fog, in the locality where this occurrence took place, must l>e attended with more risk than a slower pace; but, aMtiming that it might !>e accomplished with reasonable security, anil without probable risk to other vessels, such rate of going could not be maintained with suc h security, except by taking every possible precaution against collision That proper precaution was not taken by the Kuropa?1st, she had not a sufficient look-out; 2d, we think that no proper arrangement was made as to the engines; iH, because no nerson was placed to report to ths engineers the orders as to the engines: 4th, because no second tiersnn was placed in the wh?e|-house; 6th, that th'- or<l"r to starboard the helm was erroneous We are of opinion that, if proper precaution had been adopted, the accident might have been avoided, and that the collision took place for want of the proper precautions With respect to the ( harlea Bartlett, we are of opinion that a good louk-out was kept on board; that she discovered the approach of the Kuropa as soon as circumstances would permit; that she adopted all nroper measures t? avoid the collision, bv ringing the b?ll and putting the h'-lti to port. Therefore, I must pronounce against the F.nrtifa in this case. Mr. Kotiikkt (the proctor for the Kuropa) gave notice of appeal.
