Our filea of English papers are filled with disasters to ships. Our readers wil, find, under the marine head, the detail* of the damage to American vessels. Advices have been received that a ukase, pro hibiting the exportation of silver from Russia, would be issued at St. Petersburg, on the 16th ultimo. This meaaure, it ia supposed, was re ?olved upon to calm such popular apprehensions as nnay have been excited by the discussion of the California queation in o:her countries, aince the price of silver it 5s. 1,'d. and the exchange at St. Petersburg!, 38jd., there ia no inducement to cause silver to be aent away. The decision may ?e regarded as being significant of the views of Russia as to the probable future production of gold not only in California, bnt in the Ural Mountains! JNo alteration being contemplated in the existing comparative rates at which gold and silver are re ?pectively legal tendera, one result of the ukase, if any very great ultimate disparity should arise, will be to cause the smuggling of silver across the fron tier of Russia. The King of Belgium if likely to experience, in his turn, the embarrassments of a ministerial crisis The ministry had andertakea to reduce the present ?rmy expenditure of Belgium to 25.000,000 francs ?nd had entrusted the Ministry of War to General* nalmont, who, instead of carrying out the views ?t his colleagues, announced in the chamber that he could not realise any of the reductions pro poaed. r ' The London Pott says Cafo.ul oV/1". w? wh?< manner had the them k. tbs mtuarm eubmittsd to *??t from Nov.

Austria and Prussia to preside alternately. The object ia evidently to mediatiw the smaller Statea; and it ia hinted that the constitutions are to be got rfH of.

The next steamer from Liverpool will take out to you the Queen of England's si>eech on the open ing of Parliament, with the first debates of the session, which promises to be so important. As the 4th of February approaches, public curi osity and interest increases, as to what will be said ,elative to the " papal aggressions." After Lord John Russell's memorable letter, it has become im possible to " shirk the question," and this subject hsa led vo some very animated discussions in the recent cabinet councils. I have reason te believe that the paragraph in question will be couched in very moderate language. A bill of declaration will be proposed, which, if adopted, so well? if re jected, there will, in all probability, be a dissolu tion of Parliament. According to an existing law, [and this opinion was expressed by Sugden,J Car. dinal Wiseman is liable to prosecution for a misde meanor. Thia law, however, has fallen into dia use, and liberal minded men would scarcely find a verdict upon it. The law, however, will be revived, so that ignorance can no longer be pleaded inexcuse. The whig cabinet is decidedly averse to strong mea sures, as it would increase the numbersof the oppo sition, and would cause a coalition between the Peel party, a great number of the tones and the great Manchester party, headed by Cobden and Bright, under the common banner of " freedom of con science and religious toleration." It is quite clear from the speeches made at the great Manchester meeting on the 23d, that that would be the result The Cardinal shows light, and has recently ap pointed another Roman Catholic Bishop in Ireland. The whig government had hoped to get rid otf Ire land in the coming struggle, but the establishment of this new tee aroused the dormant passions of the orangemen, and the flames of religious discord have burst out with fury in the sister isle. The Queen is, moreover, indignant at these ordinations and institutions in her kingdom, made against her will and without her consent. Cardinal Wiseman as engaged the services of eminent counsel, and no steps having been taken by the government, an application was made by him as to the intentions of the government. The reply of the legal advi sers of the crown was, that the question would be reserved to the decision of the Legislature. A pro secution will, however, be commenced at the suit of some private individuals by the city solicitor, as member for Southwark. This wili avoid the ap pearance of a government prosecution. As we are so close upon the events which cast such porten tous shadows before them, I shall abstain from entering into too wide a field of conjecture. A large piece of ground has been purchased close to the new Houses of Parliament and to Westminster Abbey, for the erection of a Roman Catholic ca thedral, which is to surpass in magnificence any other ecclesiastical building in ?he kingdom. I hear from home, that the Pope is rather nervous about the whole affair, but the Esrl of Shrews bury, Lord Fielding, and a host of Roman Catho lics of the United Kingdom, are at present residing in the Holy City working for his Holiness Arch bishop Hughes has also been preaching there. The St. Barnabas affair is settled ; the Rev. Mr. | Bennett's successor has been appointed in the per son of Dr. Liddel, who to some extent shares the opinions of his predecessor. Political parties are so divided? bodies without beads-that it is impossible to state their positions. 1 he opening of the parliamentary campaign will be a nuHe. This leads me to the state of affairs ia France. The result of the memorable debate in the As sembly, which ended in the adoption of M de St. Beuve's vote of censure upon the ministry, which immediately resigned, has been a decided victory for Louis Nspoleon. He has gat rid of Changar nier, has formed a ministry of his own choice, has risen in public esteem by a display of firmness, and has kept strictly within constitutional measures. The exulting majority looks dumbfounded. To make this plain, I must take up the narrative of events where I left off in my last. The ministerial crisis, or difficulty, in forming a ministry after the resignation of Drouyn de L'lluys & i Co , continued until Friday the 24th, when Louis Napeleon astonished the Assembly by a message, in which he stated that he would always respect tbe rights of the A -tsernhly, but should maintain intact, at the same time, the pre rogatives of the power he held from the people. He stated that it was out of the question for him to take a ministry from the hostile majority, mid that the minority could not combine on<'; in that conjuncture he had resolved to form a transition ministry.

He ia a particular friend of M Fould, and his appointment to office la, no doubt, to be attributed to that intimacy. M Msgne, the Minister of Public Works, waa Chtf df Uirinim in the I tepar'ment of the Finano *, when he waa suddenly transformed into a Minifter of Public Works in the Barofh** Cabinet, which has just broken up.

This caused a regular turn ilt, and the A?sem ily ultirnately |as<ed to the order of the day M i llowyn T ran here announced his intention of putting interpellanona to Ihe new Ministry on Monday, and it was rxpeod that another violent j debate would ensue.

This statement was received with applause; and some amusement was excited by the hurry tnani ftfted i y M Dupin to pass at once to the next order of the day. Leon Faucher is the favorite candidate as the heed of (he " Definitive Cabinet;" but Louis Napo leon does not seem anxious lo lose his present cabi net, which he can manage as he likes The next struggle will he the Dotation bill, which will be presented next week. Louia Napoleon denvmd* three millions of francs ; should the Assembly re fuse, the money will, it is said, be subscribed Paris is tranquil, and trad* is nourishing. A veil of mystery still covers the Dresden conferences; but the veil is transparent enough to betray the de formities beneath it. Austria and Prussia are endeavoring to arrogate to themselves all the power in the proposed new diet, the lesser states are resolved to resist, and, in the back ground, Russia supports Austria tor her ultimate views. Meantime Austrian troops have crossed the Elbe, have entered Hanover, Lauenburg, and have gar risoned Hamburg; the war in the dutchies has ter minated, the Eider Canal has been thrown open again, and the new government formed by the Danish Commissioner, Count Criminil, has Keen duly installed It consists of M. A de Molike, a member of the mixed government of 1849; of Syn dicus Prehn of Altona; M. Malmross of Kiel; and M. KardhafT, the Mayor of Itzehoe. Three of these are Schleswig-Holateinert; and their nomination is a proof that the Danish government will try every measure to conciliate the population. The march of the Austrian troops through the States of Northern Germany, with drums beating and colors flying, has caused no small sensation in the different States The instructions given by the Austrian government to General Legeditsch, who command the troops, were evidently to make as much displav as possible; and none of the capi tals of the small States have been deprived of the honor of welcoming the Austrian standard. The receptioos given to these troops by the population must be regarded as the expression of the political ooinions, which animate and divide the populations. The democrats regard the arrival ol the federal troops with fear and dismay, and do not hesitate to declare that they are the instruments to carry out reactionary measures, which will annul all the ?berties acquired by the revolution of 1848. The conservatives attach great im|>ortance to the en trance of the Austrians into the North, as a moral check upon any revolutionary movement; and in so far it is clear, that ae long as those troopa re main, the discontented dare not move a little fin ger; but it looks very like taking military posses sion of the country. Denmark insists on occupying Rendsburg, but Austrian troope will garrison it nevertheless Haron de Bruck, the Austrian Minister of Com merce, has convoked a conference of the delegatea of the different States of Germany, to take into conaiderstion a modification in the existing cus toms tariff, with a view of the ultimate admission of Austria, and all her provinces, into the Zolve rein. Like the conferences at Dresden, this con ference will probably be attended with small re sults. The question is ably considered in the subjoined letter:? Austria proposes ? union, or rather the hipe of a unlen 8hi- first wishes a treaty of commerce concern log certain article* of ptoduce only; the wished aura dual neater approximation ot the tariff*. This to rea sonable. Ph? then withe* that In a few year* further steps rhall b<' taken; that. so to nay, a semi-union may be establish 'd. which nay become In time a oomjl?t? union This is all very well, but there ar* things which may well h? proposed in theory, bat not carried out In practice. When an essay takes plaoe. it cannot be reasonably admitted on the very day the essay is to take place tbat it will succeed and that It will lead to more important opes. The whole future of (lermaay cannot be staked upca the word ot M. de Brack and his disciples Negotiations may be set on toot with Austria, with a view to asceassry modifications In tha tariffs; but it cannot be said that It Is dona to lead to an amalgamation of custems. which can only b? the work 01 a future still far distant. The tundsmental idea ot oommerslal unions and customs Is always the lsvylng In common, and then the ditlsirn of import, export, and tranrlt duties. There is nothing more easy than to establish th* prin ciple of a just division, but to carry it out Insurmount able difficulties arise Shall the amount of population be taken ss a basis ? It Is evident that will not suffita, for in proportion to the degree of civilisation, of indus try. and ot wealth, the want* of the Inhabitant* and consequently the portion of dues they pay to the ex else very extremely. The city of Prankfort-oa tbe Maise, with a population of 00.000 souls, oonsumei at least a* great an s mount of colonial wares as the whola duchy ot Massso. whl -h has a population of 400 <100 In a great State these differs n?ea are balanced: but this would not be the case a* regards Austria united to tha rest of Germany. The millions of Croats, Slovacks. liutgarian shepherds, and Uailician peasants, have a minimum consumption, when compared to that of the arc) duchy <>t Austria nor is the comparison a whit more favorable It extended to cartain Herman province* of that empire, as the Tyrol, Jan nth a and portion* of Moravia and Bohemia It may be asserted, on a ?etiersl computation that the 30,000 000 that In habit the Austrian monarch*. d? not consume in met (.handles that ?tni<e under the custom* du tle?, mor* than the 10 000 GC0 inhabitant* of Prus*la.

Death of Mr Ar. den, of New York ? The Ifrttdc n Confer rn^et ? TJie H'tbiter and Hu'.tema+n Carrttpcmdenct ? American Panorama. It ii with sincere regret that I have to inform jou of a distressing accident, by which an amiable and talented fellow citizen of yours has perished. On Wednesday last, a telegraphic despatch arrived here, stating that the railroad train from Hanover to Cologne had been thrown of}' the tracks, one of the cars smashed, and three persons killed, viz. : an engine driver, a fireman, and a passenger. The latter, I am sorry to aay, waa Mr. Arden, of your city, who had arrived at Merlin in the suite of Mr. Barnard, the new United States Envoy to the court of Prussia, and, after residing here for a short time, was returning to his native country via Paris and London, when his existence was terminated in so sudden and tragical a manuer. On Monday evening, he left this capital in excellent health and spirits; on Tuesday aftarnoon, he was a mutilated corpse. It appears, from the official report, that in conse quence of one of the joints near the left wheel breaking, the engine was precipitated down a steep bask, the chains that fastened it to the cars snap ped, and the latter continued ranaing on with great velocity, till the live foreim st of tiem followed the locomotive down the pmipice, the sixth was U|?et near the line, an : the tv liner stoptwd of them* Ives about one hundred ami fifty yards from where the catastrophe occurred. The unfortunate sufferer was in the fourth car. Several other pas sengers were hurt, including I'rince Frederick William of Prussia, nephew to the king, who was proceeding to Bonne, where he is prosecuting his studies at the University, and who received a slight contusion on the head Besides thi *e casual lit r, one of the guards had his arm, and another his collar bone, fractured. Mr Arden was a member of the medical pofes sion, and much respected for his scientific acquire ments cud honorable character. The chief motive for his voyage to Europe was the desire of be coming acij'iaintf d, by occular inspection, with the t-'ate of the principal medical establishments of Germany, France, and England ; and his devo'ion to science has thus, by a mysterious dispensation of Providence, been made the fatal cause of his untimely end. Considering how seldom railroad incidents are heard of in this country, wh?*re safe ty is never sacrificed to .-peed, and the natives are proverbially cautious and circumspect, it appears peculiarly unfortunate that a man lik" Mr. Arden should huve been selected for one of the nre vic tims of such an occurrence. It will, ' some coi solution for his friends to know that his ; death must have been instantaneous, usd, con<<e <|twntly, free from psin. lr? m? diately after receiving the lust Acco'ints of tins mt lancholy event. Mr. ray, the Secretary of legation, ?et out for the scene of the disaster, m order to iske (barge of the body, and jjvs all lh? dir* nuns requisite in such a case Mr. Barnard, in whose family the deceased has beeu an miinte ' tver since they li ft America, is deeply sHecte^ at ' the lor-s of so valued a friend A most impressive funernl sermon was pp nch"d yesterday, at the Kaglt h Clmpel, by the Kev Mr Br Neon, who ad- j verted to the religions lite o< the departed as an assurance ttitt, though the la?t awful change came up'-u him so sudd'-iiiy, he was not nnpre^a. ? d to | sptear before the throne of his Maker and Judg*.

In Uct, ihe crown of the Hohen/.ol lerns has been humbled to the dust before the throne of the llH|?burgh?, which itself is but the footstool of the Romaiiofla And for this, Prussia has rained an army of live hundred thousand tnen, j exhausted the resources of her people, disorganized I society, and inflicted a blow on the prosperity of . the country which it will take years to repair. I Tlie corrmtK>ndence of Mr Webster, with the Austrian Charge d'Ariaires at Washington, was read here with intense interest. The Secretary of | State's eloquent vindication of republican ideas and i institutions, found a responsive echo in many a | bosom, and the irony with which he replied to the impotent threats of the Austrian was universally relished Of course the red reactionists are highly incensed at the representative of an emperor los ing treated so cavalierly by the public servaat of a democracy, and if they had their will, an Austriau or a Russian fleet would sooa appear of] Governor's Island, land an army on the llattery, and mike vour city acquaint* d with the sweets of martial law; but fortunately such an undertaking is a cut above Prince Schwarzenberg's means, and he will have to pocket an iusult which he is unable to resent. Metsrs Kisley and Smith have been here for the last two or three weeks exhibiting their great pa notsma of the Mits t-sippi River, at the Hotel de Hussie; while Mr Geo. W. Causidy's cyclorama of tbe Ohio and Mississippi is drawing crowded houses at Ktoll's saloons. Indeed there are so many inhabitants of this capital who have relatives or friend in the United States, that they take a peculiar mteresi in such exhibitions, apart from the natural feeling of admiration entertaiued f >r your great republic ly people who are fated to pass their lives under the enthralment of a system that contracts so unfavorably with the freedom anil in dependence enjoyed in the happier regions of th transatlantic world.
