The chief items In the English news are the rise in the gate of interest, from 6 to 6% per cent, which took place On the 4th. A good deal of commercial uneasiness has aeauhed. The revenue return* of the United Kingdom, made up to the i-Otli September, show a net increase upon the last quarter of ?1.924,124; upon the half year, of ?2,929,699; and upon (he yoar, of ?8,344,781. This is chiefly made Up by the income tax, the increase upon which is ?6,484, 147. The Board of Trade returns for the month ending 31st August show on increase In the declared value of impor tations, a. compared with same month last year, of ?107 ,769. A gieat diminution is shown in tho Australian trade; but in the cotton, wxdlon and linen manuiactures and metals thtre is little variation. An increase is shown in the arrivals of wheat and Indian corn, bat flour, owing to a delay In the American shipments, presents a dimi nution. According to the shipping returns the tonnage of British vessels entered inwards during the month end ing 81st August was 427,484; United States, 120,792; other countries. 64,600?total, 708,866. Cleared?British, ?20,608; United Mates, 130,867; other countries, 249,903. The Prefect of Police of Paris issued, on October 1st. adeoiee regulating the price of butcher's meat in that Oily, which had caused much excitement. The price ertll be turd every fortnight for every kind of meat, ac cording to the returns made at the Caisse do Poissy, and t* the weight of meat ascertained to have been sent from the public slaughter house of Paris, dur ing the preceding fortnight. The meat is classed beet, of which there are three categories?cow and bull beef, and veal and mutton. In the shops establshed In the markets, meat shall be sold at 10 cents at least per kilrgramme below the fixed price. A part of the decree which delights housekeepers is the abolition of rijnuii ccncr?an expression which requites to be explained, as the word rrjcmitnanct used to signify that at which the good house wife grieved. It U the custom of the butchers Of Paiis when weighing out meat to 'hrow into the scale O piece of dry bone, (utterly useless to the purchaser.) upon the piea that it Is the frir share of the bono belong ing to the portion of flesh sold. Many butchers bought bone-- on pm pose to serve out to their customers as Tijouutanrr. It tickles the French public immensely to ttitnt that the government has condescended to interfere in a matter was a dally cause of bickering between the butcher and the mistress of the bouse. Corn lias reached its maximum price. The leading event* In connection with the war are the quarter ing of iletaebmente of French and English troops In Nebaslopol, and the bet that the allieil armies of opera tion threaten the Russian army, both from Eupatoria and Baidar. The French cavalry, under Gen. d'AUenvtlle, de feated the Russians near Eupatoria, on the 26th. Russian io*??(0 killed and 105 prisoners; French, ? killed and 27 wounded. A tough campaign is ?xpectad, as the Russiant are making tremendous pre parations, and the Emperor himself is at Odessa. The Heel lis* sailed from Sebastopol on a secret expedition, it In supposed dther to Nlkolaieff or Odessa. Ears still held out, according to last accounts, though the provi ?ions were nearly exhausted. It was expected, however, that the snow would compel the Russian* soon to retire. Ttxv probability of a marriage between the Princess Royal of England, eldest daughter of Queen Victoria, ami Frince Frederick William of Prussia, heir apparent after his father and un-te to the throne, was very warmly canvassed in the I'niied Kingdom. The people wore violently opposed to the royal arrangement, now said to be completed. Prussia wac looked on merely as a Rus sian province?snd If the marriage took place the Princess Of England If true to her husband must be a traitor to bar country. The London Timm says:? Why should we place a daughter of England ina situ ation in which devotion to her hushsnd must be trea ?on to here mntryV Why distract her mind betwen wishes fcr the welfare of the family which she ho* left, and thvt into which the is to be received? The Pirrinontt, of Turin, of the 30th ult., announces that the King of Sardinia's health continued to ira .prove. The government at Berlin notified, on the 6th Instant, to the journal., of that city, that no attacks on the West em Poweis will be permitted. A bill wa> iradin the Spanish Cortes on the 3d inst., fixing the contingent ot the army for I860 at 70,003 men. The ('ones approved a bill admitting political refugees into r-'pain. No further bulletins have been isaued re specting the Queen's health, which has so much im proved that her Majesty has determined to return forth with to Madrid. The treop* and National Guards are to -form < a the occa-ion. It is stated that the Duke de la Victoria returned tiom the Esc trial, completely satisfied with the conference which he had with the Queen snd |hat all difficulties in that quartar are now at an end. The taking of Sebastopol has caused the greatest ex citement in Naples; tbe people are full of joy *t the -mews, but are obliged to smo'her their feelings. The TOyalists are terrified. Banquets have been held at the fCngti-li, French and Sardinian embassies with great pomp. St. Lkno, Gaeta and Papua are now being strong ly fortified: great activity is shown in oonstrncting the necessary w.>rks by day and night. Also in Pescsra to Which place ? strong body of troops hat lewn sent, anl ?nolber bmiy fs about to be despatched to the 1 to man confine-, fhiteries level with the sea are in course of construction at various points of the coast near Naples. The King, through an agent, <i. pescantlni, has with drawn ids capital moneys from the Gran libro, National Bank, and invested them in Amsterdam am) America. Thro- withdrawals have caused a panic In the Kxch gi, and produced a tall of two per cent in tbe funds, as well ma several failuies among the merchants.

I hear Ilia Majesty expressed great satisfaction at the efficient state of the hospital of St Jose. Ha, his brother, and fath* r attended the Spanish minister's b .11 the other evening; the King wss very quiet, but the Duke of Oporto danced a great deal. Yesterday, the Pope's Nuncio gave a grand dinner, and other diplomatic festivities are announced in honor of the new reign. A vtrj diasgretable incident took place at the State dinner given by the King on the 18th alt., at the Adjuda Palace. M. Ozori.IT, the ltusaian Minister, could not tind the place ahtch bad been destined for him at the rojul table, mid being probably out of temper with news of the tall of Sebastopol, his Kxcellency took the matter up rathtr warmly, but was prevented leaving the room by s Portuguese nobleman, who gave up liis own place; he was ultimately ; added by the production of the card wbilh bore bis name, and bad been cauied oil the >abie by Ma dame OcoroVt dress. A diplomatic difficulty also occurred at the royal banquet. The Duke of Faldanba, it is said, arranged the guests liefore they entered the dining-hall. Now there is a very prevailing opinion that his graee knows far bet ter how "to set a squadron in the field" than interpret the volumes of court etiquette with due regard to their intricate canons. His grace requested Sir Hicliard Packenhsni to escort Madame O/eroff, the lady of tiie Russian Minister, but the British representative pleaded the impropriety of the demand, as the dinner was a pub lic aud Btate eient. and his conduct would consequently be open to criticism as Her Majesty's envoy. Just as the horns of a very awkward dilemma were api>earlng one of the lords in waiting effected a compromise by suggesting the American Minister as cavalier to the Rus.-ian lady In the room of Sir Richard. It was stated in Milan that His Holiness, the Pope, lately received a letter from the Emperor of the French, In which he was reminded of the stringent reasons w hich render it series of reasonable reforms necessary, such as were recommended in the letter ot August 18, 1840. from the then President of the Republic, dhlivered to the Pope by M. Edgar Ney. The measures recommended were, a general amnesty, the fCcularizalion of the ad ministration, the rode Napoleon, and a liberal govern ment. It i- added that His Holiness replied that he was not averse to granting his subjects certain reforms cal culated to secure the peace of the country without sacri ficing his dignity or that of the Holy Pee. To this reply, it ia rumoud, that an answer has been received which lias not proved palatable to the Holy Pee. The Committee of Mexican landholders in Ismdon is sued the following circular on October 3d:?The commit tee have received advices from Mr. Whitehead, of Mexico, down to the fith ult. The new government hod, it ap pears, re appointed Colonel Facio Mexican flnanciaj agent here. The packet brings for the dividend fund 922,600 from Tampico, and 624,000 from Vera Cruz, addressed to the Mexican financial agent. ? The new constitution of Denmark was promulgated on Octi ber 4. Prince Ferdinand, the King's uncle, having rc uti d bis c gnature, had been dismissed from the chief commund of Zeland and tho Islands Adaviant. The Empress of France was in very poor health. The ftnperor was about to visit Boulogne in company with Abdcl-Kadir. In the British army, Generals Combernero. Karl of Btrafford, and Viscount Hardinge, have been made Field Marshals. The project for the organization of a new bank at Vienna has been submitted. The State will give the bank a mortgage on State domains of 175,000,000 of florins, with right to leceive the revenues and to alienate the domains. Cholera was rapidly on the decline throughout the north of Italy. An order for reinforcements for the Crimean army had been issued by the Minister of War in TurM. The health o( the King of Sardinia was improving. IMPORTANT FINANCIAL NEWS. The Commercial Crisis In Europe?Shipment or Cold to Itanliu I From the London llmoa, (Money- Article,) Oct. 5.] te facts ju t continued regarding the artificial opera tion* of the Bank of France in drawing (fold from tlii . aide, furnish a remarkable confirmation not only of the view* lately nmiMi but of the Houn.lnesa of those put forth a uionth back, wheu the I'auk of England first rai-"'d their rate of discount.

Messrs. Mankey A Co., late in the afternoon, announced that they would protect the drafts of the Cimmerclal Bank of (Juornxcy drawn u)mn Messrs. lie lisle. 'Iheie has to-day been increased tightness in the money market and the current rates have been lull* five per cent. The demand increases instead of diminishing, and 1he tightness appears destined to be much more severe ly experienced. The tecent extensive shipment* ol gold to the Continent, to winch we have so often and, at we are infoimcd, piofitnbly directed public attention, will, we have good reason to know, still be for some iimo to c me n souice of anxiety and to some person- |>erplexi fy.
