Th? Apprehended Trouble Between Great . Britain and Uke United St?l??. | lfrvm the Boston Advertiser (Edward Everett's organ), i W Nov. 13.) CBNTHAL AMERICA AND THE BRITISH WEbT INDIA SQUADRON. Notwithstanding the intimation of the Ismdon Timt that the large increase of the English nival force on the American coast is design- J to intercept any Irieh or otl'er filibustering expeditions that may be rit'ed out of aur porta #Rain?t any part of the British dominion-, in vk'latior of i nr neutrality lawa, au.1 the suggestion of the New \ oik Ouurritr (Its fCtal* L'nit, that its object in to look out for Amencan ve?eela beuring Russian eouv* missions, ae euppoae tiiat the prevalent opinion of the Cbiic Ik, that the real fall.-" of the apparently threaten attitude of the British governmont, must be traced, to lite toco takt n oy our own government in rolatiou Le the asserted obligation* of the Clayton and Bulvrer tie-Jty. In connection with tills may also lie taken the com plaints in do by our government of the conduct of Mr. f'rutujdon in relation to the recruiting of troops for the Russian war in this country, the character of which is but imperleotly understood. Should this -upiioeitlun prove to be well founded, al though <be step 'hue taken by the British governor- at exhibit* in a strong point of view, their dissatisfaction with tin' course taken by our Oabiuet, and a decided de termination on 'heir part not to yield to the pretensions which they suppose ate involved in it, it is not a measure that seems likely to lead to any immediate sen us re sults. lhe course of our abiue- In the negotiation a >w brought to a close in the abrogation of the convention of Mil), is, douotlvse, designed as a step towards a praotlcal carrying out ot what is called " the Monroe doctrine " in regard to colonization in America, which was no mum all-cussed in the Senate three years ago on Mr. Cars' reso lutions. The step thus taken will, doubtless, prove as effective of any practical result., as the resolution* would have been, had they been adopted by the Senate, and pro bably uo inote. Tito result of the negotiation, If the pub Nshvd account of it is correct, (winch perhaps, admits of doubt,) is that the oonven ion Is formally annulled. If this he true, the Monroe doctrine remains where it did before, and is neither euforced or continued. Nor i? it to be brought to an i-sue by any summa'y proceeding of the Bfitish licet, however powerful. The object ot the convention, and the enly directly de clared object, was to set forth the views and intentions ef the two powers, ''with reference to any moans of com munication by shipcaual, which may be constructed be tween the At Ian' ic nnd I'aeitio oceans" by way of the river ran Juan and lakes Nicaragua and Managua, and terminating at any port or pluce on the I'acitic ocean Sheprijectof the >hip canal was demonstrated by the survey- made to lie visionary and Impracticable, shortly af*er the treaty was signed if not before. That object of the treaty was therefore long ago an acknowledged fail ure. As incidental to the declared purpose of tho con vention, the contracting powers mutually agreed thai, they would take no measures, by alliance wi'h any of the Bta es of Centi al America, for erecting any fortili-a'ions lor the purpo-r of obtaining a control over the said ship ?ana); and that they would not occupy, colonize or exer cise any dominion over Nicaragua, Co-ta Rica, the Mos quito Coast, "or any part of Central America." Si lar us this w^nt. although the scheme of a ship canal hail proved an abortion, it appeared to l>e a salutary pro vision for quieting any jealousies that might be enter dkiued by lhe people of either country of the de.-igns of the other upon those Territories, or upon the thorough hues which might be established through them, by means ef railways or boat canals and lake navigation. It is therefore, perl aps, to be regretted that the treaty should net be retained in force, though it is impossible to foresee what might bo its operation tor the future, under the rivalries and inefficiency of the local goverumeuts of that country, That the English Cabinet should have felt a little indig nant at the pi ctension insisted on by our government, "" itwy r thaCby the above quoted terms of the convention, it was the intention of that governmont to renounce their claims to territory in Honduras, which had been held them under treaty wi'h ^pain, from the date of our independence, it is difficult to comprehend. There is not a word in the convention to imply that either party relinquished any right already held by it, in Cential America or elsewhere, nor is there anything in it which can b? fairly inter preted as conveying the idea that the mutual en gagement that the contracting parties wonld occupy or colonize "or assume or cxerciso any dominion over Nicar agua, Costa Rica, the Mosquito Coast, or any part of Central America," was regarded by either ot them as _ . ' i {s a embracing Biitish Honduras. This is a tract of country distinctly kuown as not embraced within the lately con federated states known under the designation of Coutrul America. The confederation under this name did in fact, embrace Spanish Honduras, which State is not named in lhe convention. But hud it been so named, it would not have included the British settlement of Belize and British Honduras, which had been occupied by flreat Hritaiu wnder treaty with Spain, long before tho independence ef the Spanish colonies, under treaties dating as e&riy as 1783 and 1780. But however preposterous this claim set forth by Gen. Goes and ethers under the treaty may lie, it is as yet merely a claim on paper. President Piorce has not. fitted ?at an armed force to sustain It, and therefore the British squadron will tind no enemy to attack. There nre there lore no immediate ill con-equencoa to be apprehended from this show of force in our -eas. [f rom tli? National intelligencer, Nov. 13.] OUR RELATIONS WITII GREAT BUITAN. Wc bavo b?tn informed by a geniWm>iu who huj much better opportunities than w? liave for acquiring a kn iw ladge of diplotuatie socretx, that iixi' loiter from 'a Phila delphia merchant sojourning in Ij?mlon," which wai trans ferred to oar columns of yc-terday, is erroneous in its statement of a quariul having occurred "between the American Administration and Is.r.i I'atmerston's Minis try" in relation to the Cent ml American treaty.

'lely its construction of "ie government to staie uenns. f , |nf|??,,, ? irvaty, to which it lius not yet rdplleu. of relations is therefore, that there has been a rupture _ not wall founded, nor has there been, as we are informal, any complication of mfairs that threatens a rupture. We mentioned yesterday, the -ailing froru New York of the United States tloop-of-war Saratoga, for the West in dies. We have since heard that she is to proceed to Port an-1 rinco and bt ing home the American schooner Amelia lately seixed there tiy order of the United States Commer cial Agent, ti getlrer with her crew, some of whom are to be tried for a breach of our revenue laws, if not for graver offences. [From the National intelligencer, Nov. 14.] In our brief paragraph of yesterday referring to ro,?nt eorresperiderm? between tire government of the United States and that flrfrain. it was inadvertently ?dated that the latter had not replied to the request to make known definitely Its construction of the Clay'.on fnlwer Treaty. The reverse Is the fact. The British government has made a reply, agreeing to the construc tion ot our government, and submitting a different con struction, but leaving the question open f ir further ne gotiations. The correspondence lias not been angry or unfriendly in Its tone on either side. Indeed, from the ?rbanity and conrterj which Is known to characterize the parties entrusted with it, no harshness or diplomatic Impropriety could have been expected. [Correspondence of tho Courier and Enquirer.] BRITISH SURVEILLANCE. Washington, Nov.12, 18f>5. It is understood that Commodore i'aulding has been ?umuioned to Washington on business H The higlo-st iin porian te. He has arrivtsl this morning.

The most statement th?t ha- vet appeared regarding the movements of thelhi i i tie.' ..<<uine? that His tinder oraers for the West Indies, from wnlch theiu fcrence seems authorized that the squadron is destined fcr (Ireytown. The tone of the Britl-h press on this sin Clar and most unaccountalde expedition excites un unded astonishment. So probable explanation of it ?oenrs to anybody. 1 was informed upon ereiible au thority that up to renter day the government had no iafermatinn from which the motives of this bsilig ?rent exhibition conid be guessed. That (treat Britain slioigd send fleets to our shores in a time of per feet calm and the most assured repose not only belweon the governments but the people of the two countries, with the avowed purpose 01 putting our ports under sui - veillancc and coercing our merchant m?nue, seems al most a moon-strucl. madness. We know that the pretext set up by the Tinit of an apprehended decent from the United Mates upon Ireland is an Impudent invention. No surh idea ever crossed the aiind of a British -tates man or editor except as an excuse for this hostile and aggressive proceeding. These advices took the I'realdent and Cabinet a ranch by surprise as they did the public. I am informed t.ia'. the despatches from our Minister do not allude'to the ?abject, but t understand that it haa engaged the a'ten Uon of our government. What has iteon done, of course is not known outaida of official circles, One of the most offensive diatribe* against the United States in connec tion with tnls avowedly liostile naval expedition was published in the Jformrq; Post, a tender upon ixrrd I'al mer-ton. Appearing in that quarter, it has the sanction of a semi official manifesto, and as such may lie noticed by our government. The ease is the -sine a- If the Washington t nion should, in a leading article, an noume that the government was informed that expeditions were fitting out in the lieuriles for a descent upon Ismg Island, and b?d dispatched a fleet of war steamers to etuis? in the Irish Chano- i eitli the View in intercept them or prevent their sailing and with the object also ? if (Ve i aw ing the British g verument and inducing it to recall Mr Urampton. Should -uch statements appear in the Union, it cannet betouhtei that a most earnest correspondence would immediately ensue, a ad if no satisfactory explanations were given by I he government, fht-e mouse?- f "otn its news jiupei orgun would b? answered by the equipment an I des|siUh of a BrMish Heft. Diere are a variety of conjectures as 'o the real objscts ot this singular pri ee? 'ing. this is tluit it is meant to intimbiate the aornlni '.ration, and thu- iniluce it to with draw from its demand for risiress on account of filibuster ing attempts hy the British Mini-ter and Consuls in the United Mates. Tin MtPmiiui fosf explicitly asserts that this is one ot ihe objects of the ?x|i?dition. In ft* own words the de.-lgn is to lower the arrogance an ! cool the sensitiveness of the Amen -an government. Another sioqinsitl n not loss probable, In, thsta< the (Tayton and Rolwer treaty has Is-en, after more than two rears discussion.

The rest ira Hon of the Mosquito king, the deten-? of the Ruatan group, and p?rh?p? the rhaetis?ment of Walker and tiis HHbusters may he melut'ed In this enterpri-e.

Iu confirmation of your editorial remarks of this morn ing upon the absurd accusal ions of i he British press, 1 wish to s^ate a few facts. The present executive govern ment put down a filibuster expedition against Veouzuela; they put down the expedition against Cuba; they put down Walker's expedition to Mexico; thoy alloinpted, in good faith, to arrest Walker's expedition to Nicaragua, and were defeated in the effort through tho refusal of the French Consul Dillon, to appear as a witness; and they broke up Col. Kinney's expedi: ion to San Juan del Norte, as far as It was of a military character. But in addition to this. 1 may say that our government has tuken steps to stop the reinforcements which (Jene ral Walker expects from California; and that ihey have instructed General l'ersifer Smith to exert his whole force for the restraint of the Texan iava-ion of Mexican territory ! This statement will lie denied by none. The thunder and blunder of tho London Timet was based upon certain information from this country?per haps a clique in New York, and probably from a higher antbority. That four-mustod ship, about which there was so much excitement some weeks ago, which was to go out armed for the capture of the Cunarders, was no doubt the cause of misrepresentation ana some sensation abroad. The ship, alter full investiga tion. was adjudged to be innocent of the intentions im puted to her; and further, it was proposed to the British agents, if they were not satisfied with the result of the investigation, that a regular prosecution against her would lie commenei d. That incident is the only ground afforded to the British pross or the British government ior tho suspicion, in whf .b both seem to indulge, of the organization hero of a privateering system against tho commerce of the allied 1'owors under the Hussian llag. The expected and practical assault upon our Monroe doctrine hy a British expeditionary force in no joke. It will be a serious affair. They cinnot repudiate their acknowledged obligations under the Clayton-Bulwer treaty, upon the pretence that we have violated it through Walker's expediton, or by placing upon It an in terpretation which they reject.

The stock market was unsettled this morning at tin opening, and so continued throughout the board. Th. movement in Erie served to sustain prices for all othei

stocks. The shorts In this fancy have suffered some, bu' their time will come again one of these days, when th cifference will be on the other side ot the account. Tin clique who purchased some weeks since at 54 a 66, pet cent, to some extent on time, are now taking in the! contracts and making new purchases. This has created a demand fur the stock, which is tlie principal cause m the rapid rise. Street contracts in the neighborhood of 4<> percent are just now unprofitable affairs, but most of tin contracts now maturing were put out at high prices an can be taken in now at a profit, notwithstanding tin rapid rise within the past week or so. It is uup opinion that the combination will get all they want of thi cornering operation. They can get just a much Erie stock as they want at between 6' and 60 per cent, but the probability is, that when they want to sell, prices will run down to the neighbor hood of 40 per cent again. It was reported In the stret-i this mojnlug that the leading spirits in this inilttiou aro parties intimately connected with the New York Central Company. It appears to us that they are gnttin. out of the frying pan into the fire. If they are in as de -; as reported the probability is that the market will be fm some time liberally supplied with New York Central Flock to ra'se the funds to meet maturing contracts i Erie. There was quite an active movement to-'lay in Il linois Central bonds. The eaten amounted to abou $150,000, principally on time.

A few days sin<e a correspondent of the 77m>?* mvle an attack upon the credit of Geo. ,-mith Esq., the Chicago banker, and doubted his responsibility as a depository of the Galena and Chi. ago Railroad Company. In reply, we showed conclusively that Mr. Smith was one of the wealthiest linkers in the country, and that the conqwny ran nc ri?k on the small amount left occasionally in hi* hands.

Our businesn is more particularly with the Galena and Chicago road, whose shares are Billing at a premium sufficiently credita ble in the market to render its clote alliance wiih the Atlanta money a matter of moment to Lite public, who uiay buy, and to the shareholders who have bought into t? stock. We feel that ttie prcts ha- Heme to discuss the subject because the tiliuui bas been industriously and constantly eiu i toyed in j uffing this security as worth 601 per cent, by abusing . nother property nearer homo, one involving thirty-eight or nine millions of dollars, as being dear a'. 00 or" 1(0 percent. Our readers will bear us witness that we have b-en no partisan of the New York Central, and that, en every pioper occasion, we have spoken freely of Oh executive management, white esteeming the route it Bel nne of the verv best in this country, and we there fere feel the freer to s*y that the comparison instituted by the Herami writer is not only absurd, but exceedingly unwise, under the facts in the histoiy, financial or otho - wire, or the two roads. When it is remembered that the Albany clique which planned and executed the New York Central consolida tion scheme, in the same that conceived and brought into existence tie New York Daily Times; that the parties ?hn bought up the Troy Railroad for $126,000, and turned it into the Central at $460,000, are precisely the same individuals who shortly before bought up the editor of the Timet?from a conservative to a radical abolitionist ?for the consideration of $10,00' " bonus" stock in said paper down, and a Lieutenant Governorship and other po litical advancement in prospective, it is not at all surpris ing that our exposure of their swindling schemes should touch the editor a little " nearer home" thau is agreeable. The Timet in emphatically and exclusively an Albany concern?got up by Albany capital and Albany politi cians. ft was found necessary to plant a spoke in the political whtel In New York to correct the erratic ten dencies of the Tribune, and the present editor of the Ttma, though a staunch conservative, was discovered to be an instrument as well adapted to that purpose as l'roy and other trash to the consolidation scheme, and pur chaseable at equally accommodating rates. The Now York Central Company has a nominal direction scattered through the ?tate, composed in part of veiy honest and worthy men. Its real direction, however, is in that hot-bed of Iniquity, Albany. So with the New York Times. It is controlled apparently in New York, but Its actual management and all its sympathies aro at its birthplace and with its authors. A clique of scheming politicians and stock gamblers at Albany nse both to control the powers of the State for their own selfish and sordid ends. No wonder that when the abominable knavery of their schemes is brought to ligbt, the culprits naturally rush to the Timet for help, and that that journal comes to the rescue as well us it can. To the plain and perfectly distinct statements of fact made by us, the Times as plainly and distinctly tells thorn they are unanswerable. Abuse has already been tried by the Journal and Argus?organs still "nearer home"?without much apparent effect. What, then, brothers In affliction, our cotemporaries naturally ask, can be done? Is the Hkkaui invulnerable? Has it not dog that we can kick'! some favorite, some pet?no mat ter how innocent or inoffensive?anything, to give us a little sweet revenge upon its master t The Galena and Chicago Hailioad is, in their opinion, considered about as good a thing to abuse as can be found. They no doubt think that by pitching into that they tonch a tender point. For months we have held up that road as the model road of the world, and our callous cotemporaries know very well that ween they abuse tliat they not only arouso as, bat all honest men in this community, who are anxious to *ee one honest railroad oompanv amidst the general wreck uf such works, sustained and encouraged; one in which the widows' and orphans' mite is sate from group ing speculators and swindling political financiers. Unlike the Central organs, we shall proceed to answer its statements on the merits. We shall take its points? whether insinuations or otherwise?one by one, examine them with fairness and candor, anddispose of them as the facts may warrast. We shall see how a plain tale will unravel and put down the tissue of ingeniously worked up fiction displayed in the ah re article. Let the Central scheme f follow our example ; lay aside their nonsensical abase, snd meet us by facts and tair argument if tbey dare. As for the Galena and Chicago Rsilroad we care uot a straw for it except to hold it up as a model road, and to show its management in contrast with that of the Central and other roads. Nor do we care a fig for Mr. George Hmith. We never laid eyes on the man to our knowledge, and have never in the slightest degree counte nanced his system of banking. We simply wished to state that whatever opinion might exist in regard to the system, Mr. Smith's personal responsibility w*s beyond questim. and that the Galena and Chicago Company were safe in keeping their account at his hank in Chicago. But to the fucts. The "supremely rldhtilous" claim of a bank ba lance of " $000,000 or $700,000" turns out to be as fol lows On the 10th iust., (the day that our article wa written.) Mr. George .'mitli had a balance to his credit with his bankers ibs^. city as follows :? American Fvcharc? Itank $146,000 Messrs. i-tractian kc^cott, hankers 502.00" Total $647,000 This is abou' as near " $600,000 or $700,000," we should say. as could be conveniently stated. As to the wealth of Messrs. S'rachan t Scott, and the strength of their bank in Scotland, the 7tmcs makes a tine spun and rather quibbling deduction from the phraseology of our remark, the benefit of which he is entirety welcome to. The safety of the trilling deposits of the Guleua Company, k pt with George Smith k Co., of Chicago, (the balk of their account being kept in this city,) may be inferred from the fact that the Chicago and Kock Island, the Illinois Central, and many other compoe nieiof like respectability, keep their accounts in the same bauk. We never said that Galena stock was worth 600 per cent. We said that the road earned, in proportion to its capital, five times more money net than the New York Cential, and that If the hitter stock was worth one hundred, Galena must be W >rth live hundred. We were very far from stating or admitting that Central was worth that figure or anything Uke it. Mr. Bmlth in not a "leading director of the Galena and Chicago." We are informed that he resides in this city, seldom attends the meetings of the board, and has thr least to say of any one of the directors. The Galena has bat one "branch," sixteen miles long, which was built and paid for without the slightest personal agency or participation on the part of Mr. Smith. There are no "rival lines" to the Galena. conse<|uently Mr. Smith can have no such stock, that's pretty certain. So hr as we know he le not Interested In any of the Hnes shout Chicago, except Galena. His stock In this company he su6-crit>eil for originally and holds it yet, snd from the fact that he has receive.! mote than the entire purchase money back in dividend* we should -ay he could afford to, particularly as the balance at hi* banker's ki found to have been considerably larger than vse stated.
