We ?-aaort, on t >e oontrary, that tbia act <a a direst violation of toe treaty of the 14th of Jane, 1864, between the Kmperor of Austria an>l tl? P< rte. By the third article of that treaty the Court of Vienna contracted a poaitive engagement to rector % in concert with the Ottoman Porte, aa far a* pjeMble, ttw legal atate of things in the Principalis*. Can it ba contended that by way of na'or ng a legal state of things in a oouatry occupied by the tro?pe of an all lied Power for a particular purpose, the General com. manoing those troops ia entitled to proclaim martial law? that ia, to supersede all the eata*?Ubed author! ies of the Stat* by bis own foreign military authority f It is a mere abuss of foroe, subversive of all law and government, and the more reprehensible, inasmuch as tbis occupation was the result of a compact of alliance between Austria and the Port* ioto; other thlrgp, that treaty ezpiean'y proviieU that, ia the event 41 tb* occupation taking place, " the cam BRE.'er of the imperial army would enforce tbe strictest diuciuline of the trcops, and that the proparty, lawe, public worship, and customs of the country should be reapeeted." Have those conditions been ooserved t On the contrary, many of the regiments sent on this ser vice are Croats, whose conduct hie been to th* Uit de gree offensive, disorderly, and tyr&nnieel. Men of eml u?nte have been drlvm from the country without a pretence and without form or trial The amnio titration baa been kept for the moat part in the hands of th ? tame lLdividuals who served the Russians, and woild si-rve th?m again. Prince Stirhey has evaded th ? promised inquiry into his conduct; nothing has resulted from the Mixed Commission which waa to sit at Vienna on the affairs of the Principalities; and it is probable that the scandalous confualon of the government may be the reason alleged by General "teronini to justify the proclamation of martial law But auch a atate of thing* is destructive to the provinces, injurious t* the Porte, and disci editable to Austria. Tbe remedy is to be fonnd in the immediate recount Uut ion of the government in its definitive form, a* aa to aubatltute legal crder for martial law, and constituted authority for foreign occupation. The Port* and it* allies have a right to expect the asaent of tbe Court of Vienna t* auch a proposition, for it ia identical with the engage ment of an existing treaty ; Rusaia herself has accepted the principle of this arrangement, and it would be pru dent lor Franc* and England to require from Austria some categorical statement of her intentions on this sub ject. Aa long ago aa iaat seasion we think that paptrs were promised to be laid before Parliament with refer ence to tbia occupation, and it would b? deairabl* to aa certain from Mr. Colquhoun'a reports what meaaurea have been taken to restore the legal government and to coreect the gtoea abnsea of the former administration. We are also entitled to ask on what grounds and b j whose autberity this declaration of martial law in the Principalities has been made, for. unless it haa bten don* wtth the consent of th* Porte, it ia a mtra net of violence, not more justifiable than the original Russian invasion. The continuance of this state of things is only th* prolongation of those evils which were the most direct causes of the war ? to terminate it ia the first step towards peace It ia true that Ruasia has artfully affected to make har recognition of this principle depend on the neutrality of Gt-rmany ; but, in &t, if Germany oeased to be neutral, Russia would only 1? the more compelled to raapactit. The neutrality of Germany does not depend on any saoh consideration. It is th* result of the inveterate divisions and jealousiea which divide the Confederation, of Rua aian influence over th* minor Oourta, and of want of genuine resolution and purpose-like energy among th* peop!e; insomuch that, until a material change has come over the policy of those rulers and the spirit of ths naticn, we have lost all confidence in the<r support. Germany had last rear a magnificent part to play tn the affaire of Europe, for, united with tbe Western l'owers, she might at once have chrcked the ascendancy of Rus sia, and terminated th* evtye of war. She proved, how ever, altogether ut equal to ths occasion, and even th* Court of Vienna haa been paralyzed far more bv th* in tiigius cf her own confederates tbanby the hostile influ ence of Russia. The policy and operations ot the West ern Powers have at no time bean made to depend on these precarious adherents, and, thcugh we acknowledge the importance the German States would immediately acquire by action, thrir neutrality anil their passive condition virtually obliterate them from the polltioal map of Europe. IMPOHXAKT CUMFKBXK01 IN BERLIN. The German papera mention a conference held at Ber lin cn the 12th, lit t ween M. ManteufTel, President of the Prussian Cabinet, Count Filter hazy, Ambaasdor of Auj tria, and M. Bismare who rrpres?nt Pruts a at the Geriranic Diet. A private letter, says t'.ie Conference, waa of a very important character A union between 1'rutiij and Auttria for an annul neutrality, ia spoken qf hemming more and ware probable, and that Prussia, with a view thereto, will support the proposition which Austria is about to make in tbe Diet for tbe mobiliza tion of th* Federal Contingents. There is some prosp*st cf an interview, towards the end of the present month, between th* King of Prussia and th* Emperor of Aus tria. The Ininrrtctlon in the Ukraine. Tb? statement of an lDBurreitiou of the peasantry In tbe Lkraine 1* me ol great interest, and the accounts hitherto given are very various. The Ciat (a Polish paper published in Cracow) ?4rea the following account as the result of its special inquiries Carriers (probably drivers of arabas) who were re turning from the Crimea through 1'odolia narrated in the neighborhood of Mohilew that the Frensh, al though they were fighting against the Rusiian troops, were by no means iU disposed to the Russian people, and wanted to do away with all forced labor (vilaine sotage,) On this a deacon (a Pope not ret in fall orders,) in the village of Mog inlaw, near Mohilew, having ob served bow little effect tbe appeal of the Russian Synod in St. Petersburg had had in rousing the people in the provinces of Volkynia, Podolla, and the Ukraine (for merly Polish) to take mp arms for its faith and its co religionist* in Turkey, made the peasants, believe that theSynod had, in fact, addressed another appeal to the people, in which tbe abrogation of the r.orvee. was pro claimed, and tbe fee simple of tbe lands conferred on tbe peasants who cultivated them. He asiured them that the gr< at men who stood nearest to the Emperor bad cansed this address to be suppressed, but that he bad a copy of it. This document, of his own concoction, he read to the peasants that wore already exoited by the French news from the Crimea. They proceeded at once to their Pope, and demanded to have the genuine address of the Synod published, and were, of course, informed there was no other than the one already made known. In a number of vllages the ex cited peasantry began to maltreat their Popes, and as sembled together tumultuously, armed with scythee and pitchforks; but in no cue were any threatening de monstrations made against the landed proprietors, tbe lords ef the manors. With the assistance of military, acting energetically up to the very sharp orders they hat), the diituibauce was quieted. Forty of the rioters lost their lives, and about two hundred of the more prominent were taken prisoners and sent to Siberia; tbe less prominent got off with a plentiful dose of the knout. The villages in question remain occupied by soldiery and the whole state of feeling in Leaser Russia is de. cribed as su'.ky and threatening. The Prtittrttrhe Corretfondtnz favors us with the fol lowing statement;? 1 be disturbance was confined to the estates of the Polish Count Branieli, and some of the neighboring do mains, and is principally traceable to the hatred ot the Seasants to some of tbe lords of the mauors. The people sd misunderstood tbe recent manifesto of tbe Emperor; they rose m masse for the purpose of entering tbe ranks of tbe militia, declaring they would rather serve the Em peror as soldiers than continue to serve tbeir lords This movement caused the greatest apprehension among tbe landed proprietors of those parts, whose religion, lan guage and race differ from those of the people. As no conciliatory and pacific means availed to brio? back the misguided people to their work, military fore* was obi jed to be called in, if a repetition of scenes that took place not so long back in Galicia was to b? ptevsnied. Ibis proves that they are perfectly in error who, in tbe above mentioned disturbances, recognise a Polish rising tgainst Russ'an dominion. The OatrrrrtrKtcht Ztitung has another vers ton differ ent from any as yet given, vie; that a large number of tbe noble proprietors or land, to indemnify tliem lelees for tbe sacrifices thrust upon then by the <overn m*nt under tbe name ol war taxes anl " voluntary con tributions," bad laid unusually heavy burdens on their serfs, snd required of them excessive services; in conse quence of ttis oppression, the otherwise inexhaustiole pa tience of tlie latter bad failed them. The appeal ol the government to tbe peopio to co-operate in the de fence oi tbe country, and to flock to tbe support of tbeif standard and the cross, afforded them a wel come opportunity ot escaping from tbeir oppressors ; to ibl* was added a very sensible dearth of salt, wbic'u ra<*?d tbeir cxeitement to the bigbest The peasantry left th'lr villages, and repaired in troops to tbe towns, where they demanded to be admitted into the militia, in order tliat tbey might "serve tbe Ciar and get salt to est " Cndsr the twofold pretence of love to tbeir cran tij and to salt, thty strove to free themselves from their ftedal shackles, but tbe autborlties refused to enrol snjbody who did i>ot produce a written permUoloa to tiNteilect from bis lonl; all those unprovided with such a document were sent back to their homes under mili tary escort snd admonished.

The fi rs were despatched from Alexandria on tlie Sth of May, by tbe Mehta, screw steamer, and from Malta on tbe 10th, by the Thsroise to Marseilles. No news from China had corns by this arrival. Ib're have been two rather severe skirmishes on the Punjaub frontier. The first occurred on t*ie 19th of March, when a strong fcrce under Qen. Craig marcheJ to ravage tbe valley of tbe principal marauders in the neighborhood, which tbey successfully accomplished, after tome sharp fighting, Uen Craig lost 0 killed and 27 wounded; among tbe latter was Major Pattensoo. Tbe enemy had 10 killed. The troops were then ordered back to camp, a distance of thirty miles, wHl?h proved a very fatiguing march. The second affair took place on tbe 24th of March, when the Momunds cams down In large numbers and attacked the garrison of Abucal, consisting of two troops of the 10th Tight ctval a snd tbiee companies of the 6 2d native in'antry. se soon turned out, and a spirited contest took plane which lasted several hours, when the enemy were com pletely defeated, snd compelled to retire, rue loss on the British side was tbe jemadar of the town, and one or two sepoys of the 82d killed. IJeut. Bradford was wound ed. The loss of thd etemy was also Ineonsiderable. Home alight disturbances had taken place on the Bur mere frontier, and it was thought they will oecaei >naliy recur until tbe whole country shall be annexed to the British dominions.

Daring March no failures of any coniequenoa took place, yet outstanding moneys were being got In but slowly, and confidence and ere Jit remained much as lefcre. In the export trade the news so anxiously expected by the mail steamer caused little impression on the pro duce market. About 10, ?00 salted bides, for the English market, weie taken up at 41 rtia, which waa an advance upon previous priees. borne smaller lots were disposed cf at about th? eame rates The atock on hand was very limited, and purchasers were s'ow In closing at the rate mentioned. ) alio v had fallen to 20 rials, and even st that reduced prioe the demasd was dull In con.ie quence of the ft loom; nature of news from the European markets, together with the uncertain prospects of tha wsr, exporters seemed deterred lrom entering into haary speculations. In other produce, including woolt, there had been no vartnM'on worthy cf mention. In article* of dally con sumption, tbe-e was no essential change. Supplies came in freely, and, with few exceptions, the demand wat brisk and prices steady. Sugar and nee were the two staple articles which were least abundant and in consequence maintained high prices. Tbe ?tosk of Spanish wino-i waa coas de rate, but holders were fiim and prices had varied but little. Flour had advanced rapidly. In eicbanjre, bills on Kngland, per doublora, were quoted at B6s , currency per dollar 2><d. At Ternsmbuco great tiulnets bad prevailed in com mercial matter;! 'nee tbe last advices. In imports Utile ha>l bee n done, except in coofieh, of which article about 7,000 Cruras bad been consumed during the mouth, ruling, by letail, at 14 milreit to lfi milrris psr drum. There was but a rm?U stock of Sour, at high prices; the consumption consequently was limited. In exports, tha transac.ien* in sugar had been but of a limited nature, caused by tha high prices ruling and tlio con tinuance of rains. In cotioos, several parcels hal cbsnged hands for Msceio's, from 5,600 reis to 5.800 reis, snd for Paraiba'a from 0,050 tela to fl.SOO reis perairoba, free on board.

I wm always our opinion that the Erie Rwiraad Company never earned the dividends p.ia We to etatel time after time. It hne lately been officially annoua-,*l tftet we were correct la all our statement* relattre to the finances of that company, anl ita munaj ts have itoce adopted the only oourse calculated to make up for paat loaaea end miatakaa. While these improvement* have been going on in the financi al affairs of the Erie Com pany, while ita sinking fund has been steadily reduain* ta funded debt, and the suspension of dividends gtvtn? the company strength, the New York Central has been going on with all lorti of extravagance la expenditure*, adding lar^eiy to its bonded indebtedness, declaring high diviiKt Js without earning them, and paying them by new issues oi bonds. While the Erie Company have opetly declared ita in*hi!i x to pay dividends, the Cen. ral Company declare that thair uet earning* exceed heir dividends. The two roaua coat about the same amount of money, earn about the same amonnt of monay, both gross and net, do about the same kind of business, and one Is, therefore juat a* able to earn a dividend aa the other. It there 1? any difference in their ability, it is rather la favor the Erie, for the rate of interest on ita funded debt, which comprises two-thirds of the cast of the road, is leas than the rate of dividend paid by the Central C Ja pan/. With these facta before the public, it appears very strange that tkt atoek of the Central should be selling In this market for nearly twice as much as Erie; that the former should be selling at 04 and the latter at 40 per cent. In onr opinion either Central is selling too blgh, or Kris too low. It Is stated that Erie is earning cot more than ita sinking fund. If ao, it is earning four per cent on its capital, which would mate It at present prioea an eight per eeot stock. We ?ee no objection to replace Indebtedness with stock, and we believe It is the intention of the management to pay dividends for a time la stock, to the extant at leaat of tVe sinking fond accu mulations.

Ihe steamship Baltic, from this port for Iiverpool to day, carried out ?1,086,788 50 in specie. At the close of tho market there was no change in quotations for foreign exchange. Tie steamship Pacific, at this port from Liverpool, | brlrgi seven days later intelligence from all parts of Europe. Ihe news is highly Important in a fluancla and commercial point of view, and of a favorable character as regards our great staple exporting products The gre.otent activity prevailed In the Livtrpool cotton market, at an advance of an eighth of a penny per potnd. This ltiakei the adrance ?? of a penny in the space of one *tek. The trade took the bulk of the sales. The marktt at the latest date oloeed with firtn ccbs at outside figures. It was cxpicted that the cheap ness acd abundance of money lu England would give a great impetus to speculation >n cotton If the dtisouraging accounts from this aide continued. The following arti cle from the Liverpool Albion, rsgarclng tho movem jn'.s in this important ataple, will be interesting to planters and thoae engaged in the trad*:? The ealea of cotton for the week, as male up on Thurs day evening, amount to 106,000 bait* ot which apecula toiH have taken 63,570; exp rters, 6,380. and spnoers, 47,0)0 bales Here is another large week's operations, to the extent in money value ot nearly ?1,000,000, alml lai to la?t week, though the advance in price is greater, being this week equal to !?d. per pound, against an im provement last week of only ,SJd The cause ot this ex tensive buhinesa and advance in price is to be found in tbe atatlftics ot cotton na they appear at thu? moment, and are as follows ; ?

Turning to prices, we there And that, with tbia greatlv reduced supply and augmented con sumption, the late advance has only brought us on an average to those ruling at tbia time laxt year, thoee of the middling aad lower qualities of American showing slightly in excess, while fair and upwards have tot reached the price* of last May. Theo, again, locking at the money market, we find toe tendency Is towards lower rather than higher rates of interest, while latt year the very reverse waa the cafe, ana we hate also no* diacovered, what we wete then scarcely prepared to learn, that our cotton trade is net diminished by the war to any extent of consequence. We would ask, then, if under these eiroumstaaca*, there is snything , unwarrantable in the recant ad vance In tbia market '? Certainly not; for it only brings n? to the [?? ition we were in last year. We are her* dealing with facts al ce as they stand at present; as to the future couree of the market, it may well be left, with the impulse it ha* now receive!, to the natur al influence of supply and demand. If the spinners do not require cotton, if they are not necessitated to come into this rrarket aa purchasers, because they are either well stocked, or. fl ndinif the Remands for yarns falling off, aeopt "short time," the statistics will lose much of tbeir force, but sbort time is too hazardous an erperi mei.t to resort to except as a list expedieat, from which it Is to be hcpei we are as yet at some distance. Spin ners complain tbat while the Liverpool market has ad vanced >?<1. per pound, they cannot get more than S'd. upon tbeir yarns, and upon tbts treat the advance In ihe raw material as unfounded. The complaint would be reasonable ?nd just U they were accustomed to offer btgher prices for the raw material In proportion as they obtained advance cnon jams. This market, after all, most be influenced by that of Manchester; she must be able to fol'ow to any point to whic>> we ascend, or It cscnot be maintained ; that Is an axiom in the cotton trade, and It seems Mrely, from the course now being pursued, that the power of Manchester will be faliy ana lairly tested to the utmost. Preac'stulTs remain without material alteration, both as regards prices and demand. Indian corn had advanced one shilling per quarter. The weather bad slightly I m proved and the prospect of a good though late harvest was better. The financial accounts are of an encouragiag charac ter, but do not nmcunt to much. The most important item Is the increase of bullion In the Bank of Eagland. ! The last returns, compared with thoas of the previous week, show sa Increase of ?426,962 ia thf stock of bul lion la bo h dtfartme-ats; of ?674, 67Mn the notes un employed; and of ?29,360 In the rest. The public depo sits have decreased ?1,603,682; the otber deposits ?240, 44f ; tie government secnritiei, ?2,<i74,90f>; the other se curities, ?177,260, and the notes In circulation, ?149,096. This Increase of bullion is accounted for by the follow ing repci Is of continental markets for gold:? The quotation of gold at Psrls Is about at par f accord it? to tLe last tariff) whlct , at the English mint price of ?8 17a It Xd psr ounce for standard gold, gives aa excharge of Vi(:17: and the exchange at I'ans on Ixm^on at short being 'J* 20, it follows that goll is about 0.12 per cent dearer In London than in Paris. Ky advices Irom Hamburg the price of goll Is 421<^ per mar's, which, at tt>e Knpissh mint price of ?3 lis If i,n d . per ounce for standard gold, gives an exchange of 13.4 rnd, the exchange at Hamburg on London st shcrt being 18. ft JK, It follows that gold isO 63 psr cent cearer in london than in Hamburg. Gold is dearer in London than In New York. The rata of exchange la this city on London, is say 10 '4 per cent premium The par of exchange between England and America being 109 23-40 per cent, It follows th?t the ex change is nominally 0 67 per cent in favor of Eaglaad: and, after makisg allowance for charges of transport and difference of interest, the present rate laavaa a profit oa the exportation of gold from this country.
