departure would probaHy Dot take place till the middle of June, as < 'aptain Sands was waiting the result of the mission of Colonel Sherburn, who had gone to Paris for the purpose 'of recovering the re mains of the late Commodore 1'aul Jones, whtoh, if found, are to be brought to the Cnited States in the St. Lawrence, by order of the United Stales government. The captain and officers of this splen did frigate wore making themselves most popular by their polite attention- to the numerous visiters of the ship. ' >u the lf?th ultimo, James II. Wolff, Ka.| , the Consul at Southampton for the republic of * hili, and Vic< -consul tor Nicaragua, and the States of Central America, paid au official visit to the St. Lawrence, and wu- received in the prescribed lorm, tht -hip firing the eu-tomary consular salutes from her batteries on the embarking and disembarkation of Mr. Wolff. The reception of this gentleman by Captain .-ands ami his officers was mrst cordial and gratifying, and the interest of the visit was by no means lessened from the fact of the prominent and intimate connection existing between. Mr. VVt.lfl and the leading journals of London and the i'uitcd States, whom lie s<> ably represents at Southampton. ' >u the day of the Washington's de parture, au address of congratulation was presented by the Mayor and corporation of Southampton to t a| turn Sands, in which the worthy commander and his offieers were invited to a grand banquet, which was to be given on the 2M of May, at the council chamber, and to which Mr. Abbot'. Law rence, the American mii:i-'er, at d Mr. J. E. Cros key, the United >tates Consul at Southampton, were to be invited. The banquet wa- a'so intended to embrace the commander and officers of the Turkish steam frigate Fort a Riari, Vice Admiral Moustafa l'acha, General(lerueladim Pacha, His excellency M.

We do not doubt the correctness of these second | thoughts. The Herald, we dare say. is well inform ed on the matter, but wasn't it rather too bad to ! frighten us with the story, and to launch such u. " playful missile'' at our new glass house! We cannot tell which of the intelligent looliiug strangers, who cluster about the (Ireek slave, may be discharging the duties of correspondent for the AW York II' iuki, but ho will be ublt by the uoxt mail to correct the somewhat confused perceptions of hi-friends across the Atlantic. The article in 1 question did certainly receive a kind of notice at the hands of the English public, but its appearance was not exactly the signal for all the conv ulsions enu merated. Ministers have not reigned, to the best of our belief, since the middle of February, though j rather pointedly invited so to do. The I hike of Wellington has not been a second time called in, neither lias Lord Stanley's appetite for office b en perceptibly sharper since the arrival of his Ameri can grindstone. As to the "do,(Mi brilliant bayo nets," it is a fact?either satisfactory or uot, as {?eople may think, but nevertheless a fact?lhat there are not so rnary by ?"?,(hMl in the whole ol tireat Britain, guards inelulcd ; nor could we mus ter such a force if we called out all the general officers on halt pay, and armed them with revolvers from the American stall. The 44 countless park ->f artillery," too. were an unlucky conjecture, for we probably eould not get thirty pieces togoiher, eveu if we borrowed the beautiful steel gun exhibited by the Zollvereui. If our American friends wish to see a representation of the actual "conspirator* and assassins "of May the 1st, they will find a true picture in that week's Pmich. The American journal is evidently ill a' ea- ? >n this subject ofthe World's Fair, and Brother Jona than's attitude altogether very iiittuh resemble- that lately ascribed to the hipponota mis ou tin arrival of the young elephant cult, tie does not like the-look ofthe Lxhibition, or it- attractions, or its wonders, or its profits. ('n the last point especially, he i lamentahly restless and fretful, telling u;> the re ceipts and outgoings perpetually, and always ar riving at a larger balance than before, in favor of ourselves, and consequently against our vi-il tr*. The Herald sets down a? -u ? to he taken ut the doors, and, after deducting tlho.n.Mi for the cost of the building, makes a gain of XIBt.iXkJ to begin with. Then there wd! be half a million of foreigners at the least, who will -pend. on an average, "overl'X) I dlers ea h," g:vingan " aggregate of od.000,000 lollur.- t" he di-tribnt J in a few months among the I'lurgcuisu of thi Kng'lish metropoli- " '? This," adds the good natured critic, " is no trifling am tint to b< added to the wealth of a ingle city by foreigners, and will, of course, as was expect I, nuike the hop keepers of London more loyal than ever they were." In the next place, we shall gain the de sired opportunity of "pirating the invent ins "of foreign countries," though to be-uro America has not multiplied our chances in this respect by (he display ut her own productions. But our grand object is "peace?peace with ail the world:" and yet we are acting in no such spirit as to deserve tin smallest praise. We have "no feeling of pliil m thropy," no expansive uffeetions no religion. We want peace literally in self-defence, became wo hav. no means of going to vv ir. "As Senator Allen, of i'hio, remarked in t "engross, Lngl.ind could not bo kicked into a war with any S-tate on any juestion whatever." Sro we are peacemaking for the bare life, and Mr. < lohden's as<ociuti in is a veritable committee ol public -afety?n .thing less. The American journalist doe- not. ir is true, absolutely reject our proffered hand, but his greet ing. to say the least is not civil.-?"The Hritidi see that their supremacy is gone?that the glory of Ichabod is departed, aud the cowed bully become* the abject sycophant. England sees that hei des tiny is under our control." This is an unpromising kind of peace, but we must hojie lor the b"?t, and g-t ou with our Lxhi bition in the ui--aiitinie. t 'n one point the New \ ork "calculations" are characteristically true. Tb'- thing certainly does pay, and our own alarm ists haw- proved no match in th.-ir prognostications for th-- more practised speculators of the States. It is admitted that we shall make money and promote p*ace; and as these are not di-agrecab!o results, we can put up with a poke or two?on the occasion. But as it is always instructive to listen to the com ments of others, wc recoinni'-ud visiters at the exhibitiui this morning, to walk to th-- eastern end ofthe building, and there, taking their stand, as they will find no difficulty in doing, under the wing ofthe \mericaneagle. to moralize on the following chare- t-r of the scene before them :? our opinion, then, "f thi- great -how is. that it origtn at--?l in ?eltishne--; that it will tend to advance peace throughout th<- world, as was intended it should: that it is a Yankee trick, to make the r*?t of tie- world ? ontri bute to Kngland's wealth; that, a- far as art- and manu facture- are concerned it w ill be a failure; and that, ou th. whole, it looks like a gigantic humbug The Krencli Kepnbllc. The correspondent of the London Tiny?, writ, from J'aris, under date of Monday, May Id, at 5 P. M i? That the approach of the year I* "hi shvuld be looked for with much anxiety in France, is natural. This di-juietude is. perhaps, less attributable to any actnul and positive evils existing in the country than to the unhappy divisions of political parlie-, and the up certainty a- to the j-artietilnr course (but may be adopted by the National Assembly when the important quc-lions already known will be ?ub luilted to it. As the i-eriod hastens on, the question invariably asked i*. " What will the Assembly do!" Whatever may be the final decision of that body on the eonrtieting jaiint- of a total or partial revision of a constitution which all parties, whatever '.hey may say, feel in their h arts to be in.'oUiplete and injurious to the interests of the country, it may be aafcly asserted that the Assembly eann it remain passive. The terrible law of Deoe-sity will force it into action, even though party rivalries. party hatreds, and defective patriot i-iu would otherwise neutralize it. The dangers rvulting from those dis -ordant elements?the total rev ixion men, the par tial revision tneu, the ?nti-revision m u, legiti mists, Orltanists, fusionists, regentist-, moderate and red republicans?'hat exist in the legislative body, will be obviated in the event of the nitinnal will, aa i* expected, pronouncing itself in an un mistakable manner.

The arrival of the mail from Lon don of the 24th of February, with the intelligence of the proposed equalization of the duties on coffee, hud hud so little effect, that the value of the native kind had subsequently advanced from Is. to 2s. tid. The progress or the shipping season wa- such as to confirm the view as to the shortness of the crop. An American vessel, the second during the season, was in the port, taking coffee for the United Mates. As regards the health of the island, the report from Colombo is less satisfactory than usual, small pox being very prevalent, while there wore also a few eases of cholera. Neither of the diseases, how ever, had assumed a fatal character, and tho ruins, which were shortly to bo expected, would probably nut an end to both. The interior was gonera'ly healthy, and the promise of tho coming crop, with few exceptions, very good. Tho supply of freight was abundant, and all the bulk of the crop was on board or in Colombo.

Curing the siege, two sons of the Waloe fell into the hands of Host Mohained, whoi? said to have nut them to death, shortly after which Bulk surrendered. Tho Ameer's brother,Sultan Mahomed, was eucampod at Alee Musjid. The I'oejerat frontier still continues in a disturbed state.

The Xuwab of Itllichpore continues to hold his districts in Berar, in spite of tho Nizam and the army sent by him against the former. That urniy being, like the rest of tho Nizam's establishment, very considerably in arreur-:, -bowed unequivocal symptoms of mutiny and intentions of extreme measures against their commander, who, flying from their wrath, sought refuge in Seindeah's coun try at Boorhanpore.

The Sultan and many of the inhabitants bad fled to tho interior. The loss on their side is not stated. That of the attacking force was about 120 killed and wounded. The defences of the island have been demolished, and the surrounding country laid wa-do. It is rejiorted that the Spanish authorities do not intend to retain posse-sion of the island.

In tea, transactions have been on a lair scale at both place-, but particularly in the north, where the rctnniuiug chops of Congou on the market have been cleared off at high rates. At C auton, the high prices ruling have cheeked the export, and some vessels failing of getting loaded, after waiting a length of time, have left. The total export from China to Great Britain to date is about 57,000,000 lbs. against 10,500,000 lbs. last year, exhibiting an execs- of 7,500,000 lbs., thv greater part of which arises from increa-cd extort Irom Shanghai.
