Aouthampton, and r*pre... i blaivlf i.vora^ to the ohoio? of that port. It wu finally arranged by the Dock and Railway Companies at Southampton, that no charge whatever should b? made for the recap tion and conveyance of any of the good* sent freai tha United State* by the American ship or ships of- war intended for tha exhibition. The Southampton people were, therefore, anticipating a favorable raply to their application, and had expressed themselves determined to prepare inoh a demomtration on tha arrival of the vessel? to show their tense of the honor conferred upon their port? as will doubtless be most agreeable and . gratifying to the government and people of the United States. The glass palace in Hyde Park, though not quite completed, was formally surrendered to the Koyai Commissioners on the 1st January. Tens of thousands of|people flocked to see it, and pronounoed it to be the most wonderful structure aver beheld. We learn lrom Liverpool that the ootton market was dull but firm, with limited sales. Annexed Is the re port, under date the 31st Deo - The following is an account of tha stocks of cotton held in Liverpool, as declared by the oommlttee of bro kers this morning: -American, 261,264 bales; Braill, 68,018 bales; Egyptian, 82,182 bales; West Indian, V03 bales; Surats, U1.917 bales. Total, 454,879 bales?show ing an excess of 80.000 btflc* over the estimated stock previously published. The London money market was unchanged, except ing that a little more firmness was apparent when the packet sailed, arising from the upward tendenoy of the exchanges, rendering an export of bullion more unlikely to any serious extant. The Timet states|that the steamship Qreat Britain, which has been purchased by Mr. Patterson, of Bris tol, is for Messrs. Qibbs, Bright fc Co., of Bristol and Liverpool. It is intendod that the large anginas now on board shall be removed and new ones adopted, and It is not improbable that this leviathan will convey passengers between Liverpool and New York during the World's Fair. Tha London Times, ot the 30th of December, contains an Important article from its Southampton corres pondent, exhibiting the total Imports and exports of specie at Southampton, for the year 1850. In the pre sent position of the money market, these returns are of considerable importance, aa Southampton is the port of arrival for the great bulk of the preolous metals produced by the Western world. During the six month* ending 30th of December, the West India stenmers delivered at Southampton specie and bullion value $12 082.273- this turn $2 011,706 test in gold dust from California, and $8,082,967 from the Pacific ports south < if Panama. The total receipt* for ths year from all part* of the World, including California, the Pacific, tbeWeet Indies, India, China, Turkey, tha Mediterranean. Spain and Portugal, were $28,702,098. and the receipts for 1849 were $33,948,276, showing a falling off, in I860, of no less an amount than $6,241,. 177. The total amount qf California gold received at South ampton, during the year 1860, teas $6,411,706, betides the amount in the hands of passengers . While the receipts of gold and silver had so largely declined, the exports of tha preoious metals had undergone very considerable augmentation, the total emission from Southamp ton, in 1860, being $7,736,000, of which nearly $5,000, 000 were shipped for India, principally In silver. The effect ol this article upon the London Stock Exchange was to produoe a heaviness of all kind* of funded se curities and railway (hate*, as it proved the balance of trade to have aet in against Knglaxd in various coun tries. from which, during ths year 1849, large supplies of bullion were received, and to wbioh, on the contra- j ry, shipments of specie are now going forward. The Ocean? Whose la Itl Tha following challenge to American shipbuilders appears in the London Timet, of Deo. 81. It has bean brought out by the notice taken of the voyages ot the American ship Oriental from China to London:? torn* editor Or THr Sir A letter from Messrs Phillips, Shaw, and Low ther. appeartd in Friday's Times In which these gen tlemen went minutely Into the recent voyages of the American ship Oriental, Utaly occupying so mueb at tention. They also state their incredulity that any British merchant ship could be constructed to com pete In power and speed with the above Fair play hae ever been a popular motto of this coun try. and It these gentlem*u, or any oi our xplrited shipowners, are desirous ot dmldiug that question, and are inclined to offer the Induoements granted to the American builder of the Orienta'., vlx., a carta blanche as to dimensions, construction, and material, with no restriction* a* to Lloyd'* rules and surveyor*, the wri ter ot this is prepared toconstruota British merchant shin of same tonnage which will Hog the oriental out and homo In all weather*, and on every tack. The screw propeller ha* reoently been thought the only means ot producing that speed so much wished for. in the present day, among merchant ships; but It is to be feared the propelling power of the wind has not yet bad a fair trial with model* suited for obtain ing its greatei t effect* on principle* which In this coun try have not yet been generally adopted, owing to cir cumstance* which our shipowner* are beatable to ex plain.

The address with which Prince Bchwarsenberg opened the sittings, has been published The first part of it I* a recogni tion ot the edvantagee Uarntny had derived from tha constitution of the old Bund, the chief af which was the preservation ot peaee for 80 years. He coatended that the basee on which the Bund rested were not only sound snd true, but that they were the only ones sdapted for a svst-m which was to Include a commit nlty of StaUs like Oermany. AU attempts to construct another system, on an entirely new basis, ha I failed: at the same time, he recognised the defects of the old constitution, one of the chief of which was the weak neee of the executive; the great necessity was to stien.then It by regulations that would enable it for the " future to or hold the mmm t hie principle, and t e op dam (e the t as rent of revolution " Hriif ( utrl. h<ra ??count* fmm Uu?'l to the 24th D?r?tnbar. i Tba Blactor raturn?>d to hlx capital on tha 17th I Th" troops which pracaadad him antarad Ca*?al on tb? | 20tb. and wais racalrad *t tha Kr*r.

IMPORTANT FROM SWITZERLAND. Our London Correspondence. TREATY between SWITZERLAND AND THE 'UNITED STATES. Iondow, January a, 1860 Cm at Droden-TK, Treaty between the United Stem and Switzerland-The Report of the Committee? The Probable Effect of the Treaty, fc , fc., fc. Th* decision of th* Cossack Congress at Dresden with reference to Swltserland and Kurop*. it not yet positively known, though all men of .euse fore.,, Us infamous character. Prominent tm?ng the Tile out rag*. contemplated by the titled ruffians now In cau eut in Saxony, will be a s*nt?n?e of *x*cutIon against ne Swiss Confederation, to be enforced with pillaga, murde r and violation, at the point of th, bayonet. The hireling officers and soldier* who are stamping out the last embers of liberty in tha Duchis*, wiU have t<> look to their laurels. The "army of execution" for Switzerland will soon be, also, on the ruin* of another domain, sacred for agea, not only to human freedom within its confines, but holding up a hope and a light to all tke successire benefaotors of mankind. The ex ample of Tell has given, in the opinion of tyrants, birth and force to the patriotism of Bruee and Wal lace. Bolivar and Washington. That would be offenos enough, even if the contemporary annals of Iwltser lend did not present the primitive virtues of her oldest republicans. But the spring is to be the limit of her reprieve; and it is for the peepl* and the gev ernment of the United flutes, probably, to say whether they will stand by and -let the ooffln pass,' or turn the bayonet into the heart of the exeeutioaer. A graver question of duty and expediency never was presented to a great, free, nation, than that whioh is about to be put by cne repubUo to another, by freemen to freemen, by the Swiss confederation to the Ameri can Union in these terms? Will you consent that demo cratic institutions are criminal per ie. of whioh all the professors deserve Indiscriminate and violent death" - and if not, have you the courage to back the opposite opinion against the royal rabble of Europe ? The treaty between the two countries comes very ap" propr lately before the people of the United States in the awful suspense of the moment. The Swiss govern ment have printed large edltiona of that treaty and the message, in French and Uerman, and copies are to be found in all the European capital*. There are, also, other most interesting documents, which will serve to fill up the pause,* and prepare the minds of Americans lor a decision. Having had aceess to them, 1 present th* iollowlng translations ef the reports of committees in both brandies of the federal govern ment at Berne. They will make a general and pro found sensation:?

It weuld be uaeleaa. nentlemen to discuss the aro. priety of a treat* of this nature. Th* object* it i* des tined to aoccmpliah, will be seen to more advantage by the examination of th* different dlrUlen*. to whi"h w* now proceed.

It waa during tbe slttiape of the last Diet, in '849. and when the excitement caused by the aeriona evewte which wera taking plaee al that period in so maoy parte of Kurope wan *1 its height, that hia Majesty submitted to the assembled Htat< a a project for a reform of tha constitution This proposal bad the des'.red erffect of conciliating conflicting opiniona. and it waa received by the representatives ot the people; and in oonform ity with the fundamental law. which requirea that any proposal for a change in the Constitution must lie over until the next session the question waa ad ourned to tbe Diet which is now assembled. During the recess his Majesty aauaed a carefully j compiled statement of the resulta ot the B-lectoral I law. a* contained in this project, to be distributed throughout the kingdom, in order that tha people might have an opportunity of forming tor themaelvea a correct and decided opinion ot lta merita.

True to bla invariable policy never to attempt to in fluence their determinatian. his Majesty maintained hia constitutor el position by thus leaving to the re presentatives ol his people the fubest llbe.ty of action, and although t he proporal has been rejected by the Diet, no reproa h can nttach to the government tor its conduct with r- terence to this matter.
