THK E A NBAS OONTETED ELECTION CASE ? INCREASE OF THE NAVY, WT ?. Washington, March 3, 18K. A good deal of excitement wm are* led in the Cabinet to- day, in consequenoe of an article which appeared in the Lndoa Morning Pod of February 12, pruposiag an alliance between England and Kranoe to suppress Ameri can flllbon eriog; and the article propose* also the pro prieiy ol increasing the fleets of England and France in he vicinity of Central America, and to pat in force the right of search of all suspected American vessels, in the same macner as it is exercised is the case of Afrioaa slavers. This is looked on as more significant from the act that the Post is regarded here as the organ of Lord Palmerstcn. The Cabinet hud a protracted session to day, when the article above referred to received taelr attention. The Committee on Elections will, I understand, re port o-morrow on the Kansas contested election cue. The report, written by Mr. Hickman, of Penn., one of the commit ee. Is quite lengthy. They will renew their de mand for power to send for persons and papers. It as sumes that the allegation on the part of Gov. Reeder that the legislature which passed the elootion law, un der the provisions of which Gen. Whitfield was chosen, was imposed upon the people of the Territory by a fo ?tigD invading foroe, who se<zed upon the government hum have exercised it ever since ? that the people are in a subjected S.ate. It then goes on to discuss at length tbe fallowing questions: ? First, The neofsstty of having an investigation of the facts in dispute. Second, The (?fleer of the act of Governor Reeder in issu ing certificates of election to a portion of the legislature. Third, whether the evidence to estab lish the fac'-s can be had by depositions. In the ourse of 'be argument the committee ailude to the fact that ordl ustily, in despotisms, the subjects enjoy some degree of peace and quiet while in Kaasas settlers are not only al lowed to be reduced to a state of vassalage to foreign power, but personal safety is unknown, and murder and outrage are said to be an almost daily record of history. A minority repott will, I am informed, be made by Mr. StepheDh, of Georgia. Chevalier Webb is out In this morning's InttUigencer with a long loiter, containing a history of that toiree at Ix>rd Clarendon's, that tea party will yet be the death of toe Chevalier. The report or the Naval Committee, recommending the builditg ot ten additional steam sloops of war, gave rise to a spicy debate in the Senate to day, as to what will he thought of it in England and Francs. D. THE CONTESTED ELECTION CASES? &UMOBED DIS MISSAL OF Mil. CKAHPTON. Washington, March 3, 1856. The discussion on Judge Trumball'a case, Involving a conflict between t!ie federal and fifteen State constitu tions, is eibitiiigthe profbundest attention of the Senate' The Committee on Elections have refused to hear Gen. Whitfield in reply to Reeder's statement. They say they b&ve nothing to do with| Whitfield statements. It Is, ' Heads I win, tails you loose." Rumor this evening f-ays that Mr. Crampton has been dismissed. I can trace it to no reliable source. E. ?THIRTY-FOURTH OONCUBUBM. FIH8T SESSION. Senate. Washington, March 3, 1866. CKNKRAt. CAM AND LORD CLABENDON. Mr. Cabs, (dem.) of Mich., made a personal ezpljL na tion in relation to an article in to-day's InteUigtncer, signed J. W. W., which he attributed to Jamea Watson Webb. It relates to a conversation between Mr. Webb itDd Lord Clarendon, in which the latter stated he had no unfriendly feelings towards the United States. Ibis statement was explanatory of a remark made by Clarendon in the House of Lords, that the understanding between the English and Freneh governments was perfect in relation to aU part <>M ha world? which was understood as a menace to U?l< country regarding Cuba. Mr. Cab 8 asaed, it 1-ord Clarendon's language had been misunderstood, why did he not explain it in his pltM in the Bouse of Lords instead of leaving it to be explained in a private lettei, which few perhaps would see or bear of t PKOl'OSKD INCREASE OV TTDi NAVY. The bill authorizing the construction of ten sloops of war wss taken up. Mr. Skwari> referred to several periods of our history? from the affair of the Carollno to the late dispu .e in re gard to the fit-heriee ? to show that the appearance of a single British vessel lmd frightened the country into a tear of impending war. He said he was tired of all these things, and wished the people, especially the merchants of our oommereial cities, to discuss questions of national interest without being alarmed, through fear of the in ability of our government to maintain them in their pro perty, rights and interests. He would vote for this in crease ci i he navy, irrespective of any question In regard to our foreign relations, simply because he t nought it wrong to leave tne seaboard exposed, and because there #ever had been a time so prosperous as the present, when, without any alteration of our revenue system, we ate receiving an immense surplus revenue. Mr. Baijc thought it absurd to undertake to put oar navy on a footing to compete with those of other coun tries. It remitted him of a legacy ot ?10 bequeathed by an Englishman to pay the national debt, If there was any apprebensi <n of war, it originated in Congesssional speeches. 1 1 was time to economize expenditures. Mr. Bkli., (national) of Tennessee, said the bill was unanimously recommended by the Naval Committee, and not founded on any existing! alarm on the subject of war. The object was merely a class of vessels really necessary fcr the protection of commerce. Mr. Hc.vtkr, (dem ) of Va., believed that the matiers ot difference between Great Britain and the United States were such as ought to be settled, if common discretion is exercised. The passage of the bill shonld not oreate a war alarm. We increase the chances of peace by prepar ing lor war ? fius diminishing the opportunity for foreign l owers to speculate on eur weakness, real or supposed. The bill was passed. The estimated cost of each vessel is $607,000, Including equipment and steam machinery. Two millions are now appropriated. THE TRUMBULL ELBCTION CASE Was considered. Mr. Crittenden, (K.N.,) of Ky., favored Mr. Tramboll's right to the seat, stating that the constitution of the United States defines the qualifications of Senators, and no State has authority to require any other qualifica tions. Mr. ProH, (dem.,) oi Ohio, contended that the plain and obvious meaning of the State constitution should govern the question. The .State had a right to require any qualification it pleased, so long as there was no con flict with the constitution of the United States. Adjournal. Howe of ReprtMntattvM. Washington, March 8, 1866. The Deficiency Appropriation bill was considered but before concluding the discussion an adjournment was carried.

Our Waahlngton Correspondence. Washington, March 1, 1866. Dirmittal of foreign Minister* ? Ifitlory of the Very Curioui Vcue of Sir Henry Bulwer. The recall of Mr. Crampton, Britiah Minister to the United States, has been demanded by oar government ; if that demand is not complied with his dismissal is likely J follcw. Ah a consequence, the public mind is at this t) ,ue deeply interested in all questions pertaining to the removal of foreign ministers. The incidents attending the removal of Sir Henry Bulwer, while British Minister in Spain, are very striking in themselves, and have many points of resemblance to the case of Mr. Crampton. We believe our readers will welcome a full account ot thin memorable transaction, which we have taken some pains to ocllect from authentic sources, both EngU<h an i Spanish. The great and agitating subject of discussion among the European courts in 1846, was the question of the marriage of Isabella, the youthful Queen of Spain. The Spanish constitutionalists were anxi ous to secure the succession ia her line, so as to consummate the exclusion of the family of Don Carlos. Of course the legitimists in Spain and the legitimate gov ernments in Europe sought to prevent it for the oppo site inducement. But the main struggle on the subject was between Great Britain and Prance, whose rival inte rests and conflicting Intrigues at Madrid have, for more than a century, been the principal canserof all the ca lamities, political and commercial, of unhappy Spain. In the alfairof the marriage, the object of England was to force a Cobnrg upon Isabella; that of Franco to marTy her to cno of the sons of Louis Phllllppe. n,0 King 01 the French did not prevail in h s firs 1 pian, but he sue e eeded in marrying hi* son, the Pake of Montpensler, to Isabella's si-iter and lelr presumptive, and in marrying thaQutcu to ber cousin, the ln'ant Don Francisco. This pave mortal tiirbrege to Fnglam'. She pretended tha? Fran cisco was iir potent, ?no that thus the happiness as well as [ the ri?ht > of Neb* ii* were cruelly saorifloed to the rapt. eiotu ambition of I/>uia Phllllpp*. It la by no mean* cert no that thU faot did not oontribute to LouU PhllUppe'i down ? l*U; nor that Etgliah inlluenoe and English gold were not among the efficient mum* hidden from th* public aye, or that sudden and myster.ous revolution whioh drove him from the throne ; as they were reasonably suspected to hire essentially aided In producing the previous Fiend revolution, which overthrew Charles th* Tenth, just at the moment when, in spite of the jealous aad angry oppo sition of Ergland, he had aooomplished the conquest o' Algiers. The French revolution of February aroused a re volu tionajy spirit in hall the kingdoms of Europe. The pro visional government of Franoe despatched emissaries of inJ>urr*c ion into the neighboring countries. Sanguinary revolutions broke out In Germany, Italy, and Hungary. Even Great Bri.ain was filled with alarm, and had re. course to the most severe measures of repression both in England and in Ireland. In the midst ot the general storm, Spain, the oouatry to which everybody in Europe was accustomed to look as the most probable theatre of revolutions, whenever tha revolutionary spirit was abroad, consistent in her cha ract*risric ?? ntradiction to the otmrse ef other govern ments, remained perfectly tranquil under the firm but mocerate administration of General Narvaez. It was in a flagitious attempt to produoe a revolution in Spain, in this European crisis, under the direction of Lord Palmer a ton, at that time the British Minister of Fo" reign Affairs, that Sir Henry Bulwer draw upon himself that just indignation of the Spanish government which ied to his summary expulsion from Madrid. At the foundation 01 Sir Henry Boiwer's insolent inter ference in the dome < tic affairs of Spain, is a letter of Lord Palmerstun, no illustrative or the intensity of England's tellshnecfl and her consequent disregard of the rights and feelings ol other nations, that we give it in full ? Fobkkjn Omci, March 10, 1848. >'m? I have to instruct you to recommend earnestly to the Spanish government and to the Queen Mother, if you have an opportunity of doing so, the adoption of a legal and const Ituticnal course of government in Spain. The recent tall of the King ot the French and of his whole family, and the expulsion of his ministers, ought to teach me Spanish court and government how great is the oanger ot an attempt to govern a country in a man ner at variance with the feelings and opinion* of the na tion; and the ca'astrophe whiuh has happened in France must serve to show that even a large and well disciplin ed army be-omes an ineffectual delenoe tor the crown when the course pursued by the crown is at variance with the general sentiments of the country. It would then be wt>e for the Queen of Spain, in the present criti cal state of affaiis, to strengthen the executive govern ment by enlargiag the basis upon which the administra tion is founded, and by calling to her counoils some of those men who possess the oonttdence of the liberal party. I am, &c. PALMERS K)N. Renoaikable as this letter is in itself, it is still more ex traordinary when considered with reference to the con dition of things existing at the time it was written in Ecgiand and Spain. In Spain, as we have already said, everjthicg wore its usual, quiet. England, on the con trary, was shaking with apprehension lest her own proud throne should be tumbled over as suddenly and as un ceremoniously as Louis 1'hillippe's had fallen. At that very moment, among the extreme measures to which she hid resorted was the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus in Ireland. And, forsooth, she presumes, under these circumstances, to lecture tranquil Spain to con sult the wishes of the nation in the administration of her government. Mora fittingly, it would seem, might she have asked the disinterested advice of Spain how to ad minister her oan. But if the relative condition of the two countries had been reversed ? if Eogland had been tranquil and un moved by ftrar, and Spain had bean in the greatest disor der, nothing oould surpass the insolent presumption of Lord Palmerston in advising th# Spanish government to adept a legal and oenstitntional course of administration, thus necessarily implying that the present one was ille gal and unconstitutional; and his cool effrontery in suggestirg that her course of government was at variance with the general sentiments of the country. But the climax of Impudence is attained by the conclud ing instruction that Sir Hen-y Bulwer shall call upon the Queen of Spain and adfise her to change her ministers. The ! instructions given to Mr. ' Yampton to enlist recruits tor ' the British army in the United States partake largely of the same spirit; but we may more ksenly appreciate the extent to which the English government sometimes goes n instructing her ministers to interfere with domestic affairs of other countries, by supposing Mr. Crampton substituted tor Sir Henry Bulwer, and instructed, not as he was, to violate the municipal law and the law of na tions by enlisting men, but to call upon Gen. Pierce and recommend to him to remove the present members of his Cabinet and appoint some leading anti-slavery men in their stead? that Gov. Chase should succeed to Mr. Mar cy, Gen. Robinson to Gen. Jefferson Davis, and Charles Sumner to Mr. Attorney General Cushlng. These instructions reached Sir Heni^r Bulwer on the 21st of March, 1848. They were not presented to the Spanish government immediately; but 8lr Henry entered at once into relation with the agitators in Madrid, and even attended some of their secret meetings. On the 26th an insurrection broke out In Madrid. It was promptly suppressed by Gen. Narvaez, on account, as Sir Henry ^Bulwer wrote to Lord Palmerston on the 28th, of the want of concord and of general orders tar the di rr-tion of the conspirators. Not content with parading publicly his personal association with the insurgents, and with receiving them at the embassy for the purpose of embarrassing the government, he published his instruc tions from Lord Palmerston, almost word for word, in the Clamor Publico , the principal opposition newspaper in Madrid, before making any offiuMuommunlcation of them to the Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs. At length, on the 6th of April, he communicated hts instructions to the Duke of Sotomayor, the Spanish Mi nister, and, as if the Instructions themselves were not of fensive enough, he aggravated their enormity by arro gantly calling cn the Spanish government to Invoke without delay a xpecial session ot the Cortes. The reply of the Duke ef Sotomayor was worthy of the blood ol his American mo .her. and ot his distinguished father, the Marquis ot Causa Yrujo. After saying that be disdains to comment on the suggestions of Sir Henry Bulwer's note, he, on the contrary, retorts them on the British government itself. "What," he demands, "would Lord Palmerston aay if the Spanish government should pretend to criticise the administrative acts of the British ministry? to recommend a modification of their literior policy? and especially the adoption of mare hu mane and enlightened measures towards miserable Ire land)1 What would he aay if the Spanish Minister at London ahouli address an imperious note to ford Pal merston himself, demanding the relinquishment of tt | extra constitutional means adopted to prevent or sup press insurrection in England and in Ireland? What would he say if the Spanish government should, in the name of outraged humanity, demand of him Justice and mercy tor the oppressed millions of Hlndostan? What would he say if the Spanlah government should under* dertake to exhort the Queen of England to recall to her councils the illustrious Sir Robert Peel, who, unlite I/wd Palmerston, had not only acquired the general favor of opinion in his own country, but waa able also to oon - f iliate the sympathies and esteem of all the governments of Europe?" He concluded by returning to Sir Henry Bulwer his let ter, and informing him that any other communication of the same character would be returned without response. Sir Htnry was confounded by this manly oonduot of th* Spanlah government. Me replied ia a letter of embar rassed and clumsy explanations, which only made his case worse, and which afforded the Duke of Sotomayor the opportunity, in return, to take up and expose, step by step, in cutting language, all the previous mideeda o Sir Henry. Sir Henry Bulwer became alarmed, and com municated his fears to Lord Palmerston, who disregarded them, and on the 20th of April directed him to inform the Duke ot Sotomayor that all his proceedings were ap provtd by his government, and ataied expressly that they had the approval of the entire Castnet? an assertion which was afterwards flatly contradioted by the Marquis ot Lansdowne in the House of Lords. Meanwhile, on the 16th of April the Duke of Soto mayor directed Mr. Isturitz. Spanish Minister In 1/ondon, to represent to Lord Palmerston the necessity and cinve nlence of recalling Sir Hen-y Buiwer. Instead of doing 'bin, Lord laimerstan renewed bis approbation to Sir lletry, of his conduct, nod informed him that his con tinued presence was necessary at Madrid. It is a cnrl< us coincidence that, as is orsdibly reported at Washington, Mr. Crampton stated two days after he received from loid Clarendon a copy of Mr. Marcy'slast, lot g despatch, demanoing hts recall, thst he had also re ceived instMictions from his government that his con tlriisd preeence In W?u,hicg'on was required. Ah to Hr lit nry Itnlwer, he bat not yet done his ap pointor woi k. and mist therefor? to do It; and with 'b? sfw s (mollis given him by lord Palmerston h? i.id i . On 'he 7th of Ma; a portion of the garrison of Ma drid broke out. in insurrection, which w*a only mippresx ed In blord. Among the kl led wa- the Captain (leneral, whq ctmmanded th* foioes of the gove{paa?ttt. The leaders of the insurrection issued from th? English em btuT, end were supplied with moony and prompted by the English Ambtwuor. The next day the IHiie of Hotomayor, in a letter of cold courtesy, invited Sir Henry Bulwer to quit Madrid within the term of twenty-four hours. Fir Henry replied with affectation that in fact hU resi dence at Madrid had comet" be disagreeable to him, and that he should avail himself sooner ur later, but at his leisure, of the passports which the Duke of Sotomayor had been pleased to transmit. The apparent indifference and confluence on the part of the Brituh Minister, thus canght flagranti ddicU> wore at first quite incomprehensible; but the mystery was sora explained. In a few days account# came to the Spanish government from the Bisque provinces, trom Valencia, tram Cert&agena, from Murcia, from Alicante, from Seville, of innureetionary movements, which it was after wards proved were with the oognizanoe a?d encourage ment of Sir Henry Bulwer, if not at his instigation. Among the circumstances i mplicatirg Sir Henry Bui wer, was the fast that Portal, one of tne most active of tbe insurgents, was, to quote an authority before us, " the brother-in-law of Sir Henry by the heart and th<* alcove:" "for," he continues, "we cannot understand Bpanlsn politics without occasionally raising the corner of a mantilla." Portal not only protested that he acted in the name of England, but, in proof of the {act, ex hibited the very letters of Sir Hsnry. Narva**, with his accustomed vigor and forecast, had prepared for all such contingencies. He suppressed the revolutionary movements as promptly In the provinces as he bad done in the capital. Sir Henry Bulwer found that the game was lout. His affectation of indifference these subsequent events had fnlly explained. The condagration which he had raised, lasted just long enough to tnrow light on the hand of the Incendiary. He had confidently expeoted that the revo lution would be successful, and that he himself should lemain at Madrid, not as the British Minister only, but aa the director of the Spanish government. He did not stop for any further invitations to quit Madrid; but with a suddenness too great, perchance, for some leave takings, he terminated his inglorious mission and left the country. The conduct of Sir Henry Bitiwor and of I wd Palmers ten was regarded in England with great disfavor, and would have been disastrous to Lord Palmerston but for the generous in tor position of Sir Kobert Peei to prevent the adoption by Parliament ot a resolution of censure in reference to his instructions to Sir Henry. Tbe English government made some little exhibition of ill humor towards Spain on account of this affair, and tbe diplomatic relations of the two countries were interrupt ed Tor a brief period. Tnere it ended, greatly to tbe cre dit of Gen. Narvaez? br the Crampton affair must end to the credit of the American government. Lettnrt on the Chutacier of Washington, t>jr Hon. Bdward BverctU Hen. Edward Everett delivered his lecture on the cha racter cf T^iuliliigton, before tbe Mercantile library An. sociatlon, last evening, in tto Academy of Music. It was but natural to expeot UtS the lane of the lecturer would attract a large audience, but we were not prepared to see such a vast concourse assembled within, and even without the walls of that building. According to the published, notice the lecture was to commence at 8 o'clock , but for at kast an hour before the appointed time the doors were beget with an eager crowd, who in their impa tience actually tore two or three off their hinges. The par. quette was crowded, the drat tier was crowded, the se cond tier was crowded, the third tier wa? crowded, so was thej gallery, so were the stage boxea, the orchestra was jammed full, and the passages were all blockaded while the entrances were thronged with eager listeners anxious to hear a word of the lecture, or to get a glimpse of the lecturer. Then the stage was in the same plethoric condition as the rest of the house, and was oc cupied by some of the most distinguished representatives of the literary ability, the mercantile enterprise, the medical skill and the legal talent of the Empire City. Among these we noticed Washington living, Hon. George Bancroft, Henry Grinnell, l'eter Cooper, Dr. Francis, Judge Duer, Bishop Potter, Mayor Wood, Dr. Webstar Hon. Charles King, Rev. Dr. Bellows and other well known persons were precent. Take it altrgether we have never seen ho brilliant an assemblage in the Academy of Musis. It was a magnificent compliment from the city of New York to one of the most eloquent and classic speakers of whom our country can boast, and a compli- , went wbich, in justice to the orator of the evening, we must say was well deserved. Mr. Everett was equal both to the subject and the occasion, and the deep and breathless inteieet with which his audience hung npon his every word was the strongest proof of his success. At times le was interrupted by bursts of applause that ?lock the building, and then again all waa still and silent as the giave. When tbe hour arrived he was Introduced to the audi ence by Mr. George C. Wood, the President of the Mer cantile Library At sociation, and was reoetved with the most entLusiastio welcome. Mr. Everett waa dressed in a plain t>uit of blaek, and displayed no jewelry of any description. During the whole of his lecture, which oc cupied nearly two hours in ltn delivery, he bad not occa sion even once to refer to his notes. Ill* manner and style is unim passioned, and the most brilliant passages are delivered without the slightest enthusiasm. In this respect Mr. Everett does not do full justice to himself, acd a less classic or eloquent speaker would produce a ?till greater effect with the lecture to which we listened last evening. Tbe lecture was, as its title announced, on "the Char acter of Washington," tbegr?at man "whom l'rovidence left childless, that a nation might eall him Father." Ic was a splendid eulogy, and, at the same time, an accurate portraiture of the virtues and great qualities of the pa triot, the s tatesman and the warrior. He was, said the lecturer, not only great as he was good, but he was great because he was good, and he believed, as firmly as he did bis own existence, that it was a part of the dem^n ot Pro vidence to raife him to be the commander of the armies of the Revolntios, land to be the first President of the United States, to prove to the people of America, In the morning of jtheir existence as a nation, that just laws, could be best conducted, and governments be administer ed by men of pure moral principles. The lecturer con tratted him with ;Themistocles, the great Athenian, and the oelebrated English general, Marlborough, to both of whom he was superior in everything that ren ders a man truly noble or great. After dwelling at length upon his services to his country, to mankind, and the many virtues of his private life, he concluded as follows: ? If the day shall ever come that the people of the United States forget the lesson contained in his Fare well Address, upon that day it may be truly said that Washington lived in vain. But it cannot ana shall not be. This great catastrophe fur constitutional freedom shall not happen; this grievous calamity for all mankind shall not be ? by the undying fame of the 19th of April, 1775 I by the blood shed at Bunker Hill, at Saratoga, at King's Mountain and at York town I No ! by the memory of the Fourth of July ! No! by the sacred ashes enshrined at Mount Vernon I By the blessed memory of Washing ton, it shall not be 1 , At the close of the lecture Hon. George Bancroft came forward, and after a few aspropriate and compli mentary remarks to Mr. Everett, presented the following resolution, which waa seconded oy He v. Dr. Adams, and unanimously adopted by the audienee Whereas, we have listened with feelings of unmlngled ad miration and respect to the address or the Hon. Kdward Kverett upon the character of Washington, aad are desirous of making sane expression ot our gratitude for the lasting plea sure thus conferred. We would, therefore, unanimously Kesolve, That the thanks of this assemblage be, and are hereby, tendered to the Orator and Statesman, whose writings and whose life have done so much to Illustrate the principles maintained and enforced by the Immortal Father of our Coun try. After the adoption of the foregoing, the andience dis persed. Brooklyn City News. Tim Common Council and ttik Crrr JUilhoaiw.? At a meeting of the Board of Aldermen, last evening, a petition signed by several citizens of Sands streets, was presented, praying " for immediate relief and protestlon Irom the bold and presumptuous proceedings of the Brooklyn City lUilroad Company, by digging up tbe ice on their double tracks and piling it np on both Hides of ths street in front of their dwellings, so that it is impossible to receive anything that their daily wants may call for," and pray that the Common Council will immediately order said company to have carted away the ice now piled up. to their great injury, and If net so removed they wQl be compelled to take it away atdbeir own expense. Alderman Fowjjcr offered a resolution, which directs the company to remove the ice thrown up from the track entirely from Sands street; and if they refuse, that pro ceedings be commenced against them for obstructing the public highway. Alderman Miij? offered an amendment including all the streets In which tracks are laid; and during the discus sion which followed, it was stated that not only Sands street, but Myrtle avenue and other thoroughfares, were rendered impassable at certain points, in consequence of the piles cf snow heaped up on each side of the tracks. The amendment, however, was lost, and the resolution of Alderman Kowler was adopted by a vote of 20 ayes to 11 nays. It was intimated during the discussion that the Rail road Company would not heed the resolution, notwith standing the action of the Board. Jersey City Rewi.

The Fears in England in Regard to the French Allianoe. A&EITAL OF TDK PLEIIPOTEITUUH, Ac., Ski., Ac. Our London Correspondence!. ^ London, Feb. 14, 1IM. The Ptace Conferences at Paris? The Misunderttan with Washington? Nev> English Loon ? -State q f A* British Navy?t'jmfrrtM of Austria Enceinle. The Peace Conferences at Peris and the misunderstand ing with the government at Washington continue to absorb public attention to the exclusion of everything else. As regard* the first, before this reaches you the Can* ference at Paris will have actually oommcnoei. With the exception ot Ail Pasha, who is on his way, aH the Plenipotentiaries will have reached Paris to-day, a one, including Brunow, hiring already arrived. Lard Cow ley is over here to receive instructions, and will return with lx>rd Clarendon. Prussia is doing all she can to be allowed to participate* There is on )y one argument in favor of her admission, and that is, that if an important treaty is drawn up settling the boundaries and relative positions, political as wed as geographical, ib would be just as well that Prnasia snoulci be bound like the other Powers, which she wfli not be if she does not sign, or if she is excluded front par tidpating in the negotiations. At the same tine, it would be a severe chastisement to her pride to refuse her admittance to an European Congress. You will see, bf a despatch from Baron Manteuffel, which I enclose, that Prussia has declared her willingness to sign the prelimi naries, and that she claims to herself the credit of having effectually contributed toward the acceptance by Rusaia of the Austrian proposals, by giving her advioe sxaodg at the turn of the tide. Like Moses in Egypt, UanteuHM thinks he will take over his Prussians on dry grouaA, whilst the cfhartots of that great Pharoah, public opinion, will be swamped in the attempt to follow him. Now, mind you, peace is by no means concluded ft t. France and Austria, and even Turkey, desire peace. Russia will insist on not sacrificing too muck. I believe, would sooner have another Baltic campaign; but is quite willing to sign an honorable peaoe. I ff? n* give you a better specimen of the real feeling in than by quoting Paimerston's reply to Mr. Ewart, in tha Commons, as to whether it will be lawful to despatch Bri tish ships with cargoes to Russian ]>orts during the ar mistioe which is about to be concluded, and, la that case, would articles contraband of war ? such as brim stone, lead and saltpetre? be exempt from sueh permis sions ot shipping? If the sailing of British ships be an lawful, might foreign ships be chartered for the purpoeaF Or whether the blockade of Russian ports will be soon re established? Lord Palmerston replied I should strongly tucommend any person who mm wish to engage in such undertakings as are described in my honorable friend's question, to wait until they saa whether an armuticc is concluded; and, if to, what are (As nature and conditions of that armistice. (Cheers sod laughter.) To turn now to the misunderstanding with the gevstn ment of Washington. You have already before you Paimerston's statement in reply to Cobdea, in which ha said the question respecting Central America had bsea referred to arbitratioa. As regard* the second point? the enlistment question? I cannot do better than quake, as an expression of public feeling here, the following ?k tract from a leading article of the Tines : ? With equal frankness did the British Premier point out the incidents of the second dispute. We are threat ened with a suspension of international relations. Tba two branches 01 the Anglo-Saxon race will only cones pond officially by means of a consul, or. at most, a se cretary. Possibly no great harm may arise from a short cessation of diplomatic activity, but the cause of this mutual interdict, and not the thing itself, is ot grave Importance. Such an interruption is generally looked upon as approaching nearly to a state of Hostility. In fact, in such a case everything has been done whicti usually pre cedes the first Irrevocable blow? tne great letting oat of the waters of strife. The House then listened with at tention to the words of the First Minister, fle stated that in the direction* for the enlistment in Canada striet orders were giron that nothing should be done to iaMagn the municipal regulations c i the States or violate the lawa of the U l ion. He acded, moreo rer, that when it was found tWa enlistment might cause offence to tbe American govern ment and people, orders were given for its cessation, aad this before any remonstrance was received. When att cial representations were mads complaining of an alleged infringement of American law, the British government expressed its regret at once and without reserve. Lofd Palmerston thus explicitly stated that his government first did all that it could to avoid giving offence, and when charged with discourtesy promptly apologised. This declaration was received with cheers by the British House of Commons. Tbe temper of the government and ti e national repreeentatives wan fully evinced at this ad ting. The feeling of the public we believe we have en riesssd, and it fully coincides with that ot the Ministry aud the Commons. A sincere defire for peace, ? wish ts make any honorable concession, a regret that any iiHmurt act of ours should haw. caused a difficulty between the (is* countries, animates aU classes and mil determine their fw ture conduct. All the I/indon journals express their desire for peaoe. From the East there Is no news. All the docks of topol are now a chaotic mass of ruins.
