[Ftem tae Parle Momteur, March 2b.] In Ita impressi."n of March 22, the Ljudeu Ttmrt, on the faith of ita French eorreepon.ient, represents our OimeaD armr at in want of provisions, clothes, every thing, and as abandoned by the government of the Km peror, who is supposed to here no longer any solicitu le lor his brave troops. The flimes goes so far as to aay that our soldiers are so reduced as to go about and pica up for their subeistence the spoiled biscuit and the broken victuals thrown away by the English soldiers. With regard to this last assertion we rhall observe taat, if the scarcity should make itself felt in our camps, our allies would hasten to share their resources wttn us, as we ourselves aid with them; and that the geoerous oiler they recently made us at Constantinople, of placing their medical ?tor?s at our dL-p >sal. is a sufficient proof for us ot what thty would do in the Crimea if we in reality weie in want of provisions. But the fnni'.r, we bavs no doubt, will regret that it was not better infirm ad when it lea ns that the French army is provisioned in such a manner as to receive fresh bread every day; that it has in stire dour for three mouths in a'l vanoe: and that the greater part of our troops receive rations ot fresh vegetables, sent out to them in great quantities from Constantinople. As for the ciotues, it may be affirmed that never, at any period, were the wants of an army so amply supplied; each soldier in the Crimea has received, in addition to his regimentals, a complete winter suit, consisting of a woollen felt cap, a short cloak with a hood, a pair of Bulgarian gaiters, a woollen cr flannel bslt. a pair of worsted stockings, a pair of wooden shoes, and a pair of gloves. It is trae that, nolwitlmtanr ing the care of which It bus incessantly been the object, our army has been lor some tine vuited with sickness, which seems to spare our allies, mora fortu nate than ourselves. But it one c insiders that our trrops are encamped around Sebaatopol, on the very theatre ? f the struggle?'hat ia to aay, on a ground which, having aervad as a tomb for si many victims, ia far from offering those conditions if healthiness which the English amy Elide at Balakiava, it will be understood that tne present inferiority of our sanitary state may be the conee lueace ol unavoidable circumstances, and thit his cannot be at tributed to a want of solicitude. Isst us add that they have now succeeded in imoroving this condition, ani doubtless belore locg they will have comple ely mastered ft. We may nope for this happy result with the retu-n ot 'he fine season, and from the measures adopted for ecm baiting the disease especially from the consider* ile tharta rent away to Cons laa lnople, and from the estab lishment at thir latte- place of new barrack ambulances, roomy and well ventilated.

These assasslnati ins are committed with unparalleled audacity.

It Is said that the as-assin* have marked out those lor their victims who pronoucel ?ontenoe of death upon the ringleaders of the insurrei tion of July 22. 1854. It may be recollected that that aentence was executed without admitting any petition for par' on. ? t'ommandant I.nnatl was president of the tribunal, and he was murdered; Gobbl, the public prose cutor in the same case, soon after rece ved a wound, of which he recovered with difficulty; and now It has baea Auditor Bordi'a turn.

These crimes spread oonsternation thronghout the coantrv, and every one deplores that the ff'ttri ?tent should be unable to unravel this mysterv of blood. The Grirritrt MmanttU, of Genoa, of the -1st ultimo, mentions a rumor aocorling to which Count Giovanni, Vresident ol the Criminal Lommlaston. has also fallen a victim to assassination, a stiletto having bean " him at a distance of five paces.

Tie opera wae Verdi's "Trouvature." After the first act the people lost ad eontrol iver their feelings; they continued constantly applauding their favorite before the eurtatn, and shower ing bouquets at her feet. This was repeated at the con clusion cf each act, and at the finale it appeared as ir they never wou d cease. For half ?n hour she wee obliged to remain and leoeive this boisterous homage. She was ideluged with bouque's, crowned with garlands, and, amid wavng of handkerchiefs, clapping ot Bancs, ah< nting of vivas, wecoopai ied with baloons sent from the boxes, and gcddleaf and flowers thrown on the stave, she was at length allowed to retire, bat not before tne rights wete being extinguished. At the door she w?s re ceived by the gentlemen of Sienna with candies, who formed a p-oeesmon to light her h?ne. p-eeeied by a bard cf muric.

The inherent vitality and scun'ne.s of tb? trad? have thus been ev.ncei in a high degree under the severed circumstances cf financial pressure; for. although the inati.rt'1 of war lies undoubtedly einstituted a heavy item in the demand on our blast furnaces aiid foundries, on the other band the consumption of manufactured iron hae suffered, becau-? inanv mag'.ific??t railway en'.e.-pi ises, In which nmnecie capi'al was embarked, have been ar rested or crushed by the all-absoroing interests ani in fluences of the late struggle. America, our best cus tomer, has also evmpatbiifd largely in the money crisis on fhit side, and her orders for English iron to build rail ways have consequently hern issued only on an extremely limited scale. It must not be forgotten, too, that, the ports ot Northern Europe have been closed tor tvo years sgains4 the shipments if this article. At hone the pres sure o* raxa ion has led to the postponement of tne exe cution of many public works that were in active pro gress in 1853, and which would have aboorbed in th.-ir construction iron to a considerable extent. On the whole, it is pater 1 that tbe war has cast a dark shadow across commercial en'crprite In general, wuateverpoliti cal and moral ends may have been attained by its prose cutiin. Annexed will be found our usual table ol exports of lri n for the past yar. which, as conipaiei with the two preceding yeaps. shows the following results, all dee crip lions being reduced to pig:? . 1863 1,814.231 tons 1854 1.735,136 tone )8w!! 1,619.205 tons Thus the diminution amounts to about 200.000 ions per annum in 'he shipment of British iron to foreign ports during 1855, as compared with tno?e of 1853, an incon siderable la'.ing off fiom a make of iron ettimatel now a' 3,61)0 000 tons per annum for tbe United Kingdom. Tae stocks on hand throi ghout the country are very ineoo siderable. three ft pigs tn Scotland are esliraated to amount to 140 000 tons. and perhaps there are about 1 20 000 tors in p'gs in the north cf England; with which exceptions, all the iron made has either gone aoroid or been consumed at home?i. e., broadly and roughly, at,i ut half the iron produced is now exported, and the rec-a'-nder used in this country. Any revival or exten sion ol tie demand in any quarter of the world would, ?here'ore, come noon very insignificant stocks In Great Britain, and consequently act as an immediate stint ulcus ' to the market. As much attention Is now directed to the grosiDg e'rength of the iron trade, in connec tion with the discovery of the Cievelitd stone on tbe Yorkshire coast, we have prepared a reliable statement of the whole of the blast furnaces and rolling mills notth of the Hum ber gjlhe total annual output ot pi* iron in the northern district is now equivalf *"> 446,680 tons, out of which it converts about 138.320 -uus into malleable iion. and ships lhe remainder for forge an J fcupcry i urpotes. coastwise and f ireign.

M. THE LATE BALTIC FLEET OF ENGLAND. The Bailie fleet no longer exists in official resogm ion; it wan merged into tbe home fleet yesterday, on which day Admiral Dundas and Admiral Baynes gave tip 'heir respective appellations of Com man l*r-in-Chief and te ctnd in command of the Balic fleet. The Captain of the said fleet, the Hon. F. T. Pel nam, changed hie position at the tame time. The whole fleet no* at Portsmouth ia placed under the command-in chief of Admiral Seymour, the Port Admiral. Immediately after the review It is rumored that 10,000 seamen will he discharged from the fleet; these will con sist for the most part of tbe men drawn from tbe Coast Guard at the outlet of the war, and such others as have i?rved fully and longer than the nanal term of commis sion. It ia said that there will be a permanent Channel fleet of exercise and training, consisting of twelve sail of line end adjuncts. It may be confidentially expected that the year 1857 will be tar advanced before the last man and tbe last cargo of shells can pass the Dardanelles on their way homeward. Nor can we thins that any haste is necessary in completing the evacuation. We have accumulated large stores, and assembled a great army for the defence cf Turkey, and there ia no reason that we "hall incur the expense of new transports and a greater employment of labor in order to borry back with anch speed as may gratify the desire cf these whom we saved to be quietly rid of us. The presence of the Western forces In the Fast is now only a question of months. The British army is said to be provided with food and necessaries for nearly twelve month a. Paris, April 3?P. M. The details connected with the Denublan Principalities and the liberties of the Christian stibjeets of the Porte, are th? p inta to be arranged in the renewed Conferences. The Porte object* to any occupation of Turkey by tbe allied forces, and it la possible that the point will be waived, if the Powers are satisfied as to the safety and privileges of the Christian*. If the return home of the allied armies is performed leisurely, the feeling in official quarters is that a suffl dent force will remain for many months to keep fanaticism In check. It grows confirmed that the situation of Italy will f.<rm a snbject of delibera tion before the Conference diss .Ivrs. 9t Prmai 'no, Ap>il 2,1856. By an imperial manifesto pes e is proclaimed, "the object of the war hav'ng been gsined by the security ac qui'sd for the prirllefes of Chrt-'ians to th? East."

The ex'en'. of business wm again moderate, attention continuing to be directed to the more speculative descriptions of in vestments. I'p to the present moment no instructions appear to have been received at oar Custom Houses to allow Vessels to clear for Hussion ports, but an immediate instruction to that effect is looked for. Numerous agents have already been despatched to St. I'etersburg and else where, and a number of unfounded rumors regarding contracts for railways and other public works are already in circulation. Markets. London Moxrr Mxrkst, Friday Evening, April 4.? The money market has presented no material variation. Its present aspect is thus reported by Mr. William Avens, of No. 13 Tokenhonae yard, Loth bury, London:? Notwithstanding the announcement of peace, and a pro gressive retu . n of confidence, the market has partially retained the stringency which characterized it at the ?ad of last week. Discounts have been no lower, while the demand has been ac .ive and increasing. Tbe pressure is mainly attiibutable to two causes: first, tossveral banks having not only limited their usual advances in certain classes of trade, but called in onts .anding loans; and next, to tbe preparation* to meet tbe eommeiclal bt'ls lalliag cue on the 4th. These causes, though severely felt a: present, can only be temporary. Money cannot be perma nently dear now that peace has returned, while specie is flowing in acd the exotai get are becoming more favorable, owing to the aotlvity of tne export trade. An apprehen *lon is undoubtedly abroad tbac a speculative rnauia will set in tiefoie tne end tf summer. It is tuil impression wbich induces so mucb caution on ths part of bankers and money dealers, and it may pcssibly oe the means of keeping tne marset tight longer than is eurreativ ex pected. But en the other hand, it Is highly probable that the Bank of England will lednce the rate ot interest, cn long dated bills trotn 7 to 6 per cent, and that In less than two months it will be followed by a general reduc tion to 5 per cent. Money will then gradually become cheaper, and the holders of public securles be tbe first to derive advantage from tbe charge. In the Btock Ex charge money was in great demand during the early part of the week at an average rate ct 8 per cent. 11 is now worth about 0 per ceot; and the rate may possibly in crease as the consol settlement, which is just at hand, progretsee; but on ihe other hand, considerable re lief may be expected from the payment ot the April dividends. Tbe imports cf speeie during the week have been larger than for m?Dy months 'past, amounting to about three quarters of a million steiiing, alarge proportion of which has found its way to the Bsiik of Ecgltad. The demand lor bullion fium Frauce is rather abating, owing to toe large supplies that have jnst been sent there, tloin cm tinuee to be forwarded to the East both from London and 1'aris; i. portion, however, is fiowiog back, though not to any appreciable extent. fa the declare: value of our exporta'ions there is the extraordinary increase of ?2,(193.331. tbe total for toe corresponding month of last year baring been cue of the most unla'orablecuriigthe war.

There was a brisk demand for bar silver and Mexican dollars in the esrly part of the week, principally for the East, but alter the aeparture of the Indian mail the mar ket became quieter, and tbe arrival of a large shipment by tbe Mexican pacaet has aided tne effect. The quota tions are not altered, but there are holders of large lots offering at tbe prices, and no buyers. It was anticipated that the dec.aration of peace would have at once affected the m< ney market by inducing the Ihiectors of tbe Bank of Emiltnd to reduce their rates, but at present there la no sign of this course being acopted, and rates still role bigb, with an active demand. ? a. i.

The terms will not transpire until it is rati fled, which is expected to occupy three or lour weeks: in tie meant inrte we hsve the assurance of government that the basis is hrnornole, and likely to prove lasting This intelligence has had a favorable influence in stl circles, ant mparts encouraging Lopes for improvemnit in every Branch ot commerce, symptr ms of wh-uh art sp patent "in our produce markets, as well as lntheiP""i factu.lrg aisiriots. Money nut.ers have also an imr v ed aspect, the arrivals of specie to some extent, itnd t e favorable course ot exchange*, inducing the opinion t t an equa.izatir n of rdscount rates will shortly be anitu?.j- - ed by lbe Bank of England. The extension of trade will neressartly create a large demand for accommodation, and thia feature will probably check the tendency towards immediate ease, and prevent undue speculation. The American advicea still incline to a large crop o* cotton, and ihe receipts juatl'y the opinion, although it has been asserted that the sowttwestern section oi c"un try is pretty well cleaned of stock, and it is not unlikely that we shall shortly be receiving reports of a bad plant irg season. Our market has not teen a fleeted bv these accounts, as the active consumption requires to be ted by abundant supplies, and It dees not appear thv an undue proportion of tbereaidueof the yieid will reajh this country.
