She Crampton Difficulty in the British Parliament. The French and English Fleets In the Gulf of Hexlce* ho. Ac., AO. Th. mail steamship Arago, Capt. LtnM, arrived at this (port a boat nine o'olock yesterday morning. Sue left .Havre on the 9th inat. The news in four days later. Among the passenger* are tne Hon. Jamee Buchanan, late Minister Plenipotentiary to the Court of St. James, and Henry Dubois, Esq., Minister from Holland to the United States. . The screw steamer Edlnbnrg, whiah left New York on the 22d nit., arrived In the Clyde on the 4th Inst. The United States mail eteamshlp Hermann. rrom New 'York for Southampton and Bremen, and the royal mall Steamship Arabia, from New York for Liverpool, arrived out on the 6th InBt. The steamer Baroelona, also from Hew York for Havre, arrived on the fitli lost. * The Brussels Herald of the 7th instant says:? We observe that It is said that the English and French navies are uniting in the Gulf of Mexico for a visit to - Central America. We hope this is not true. What busi ness has France in this quarrel '< She is not a party to the Qayton-Bolwer treaty?she is not the proteotor of the Mosquito Indians. What business has she. or rather, what right have we to oall in her armed Interference in that dispute? We trust there is no truth in the report. It would confirm the interpretation pat by the Americans an the language of Lord Clarendon in the House?that England and France were prepared to act in concert upon American affairs. The proceedings of the Peace Congress were continu ing, It was said that the persistence of Austria in re fusing to fix a term for the evaenation of the Principali ties was giving some trouble, and li persevere! in would be the eause of much more. A correspondent of the . English journals says that the pretence of Austria was the necessity of protecting the country against disorder On til a regular administration was established. This pretext is flimsy. Austria is bonnd by treaty to quit the Ottoman territory on tne conclusion of peate; > and though the ratification of the treaty of peace was not known, yet, as it was certain that the war was for th* present at an end, her conduct would not only justify doubt a. to her good faith, but wonld establish the - necessity of the occupation of the Bosphorut by the Allies until after the complete evaenation of Moldo-Wal laehia. Russia is of course adverse to the Austrian oc cupation of the Principalities, and the question affords her ample occasion for opposition to a Power she now cordially detests. Later intelligence states that the Aus trian army bad eommsnced leaving the Principalities. A considerable redaction of the French army, as soon as all masters are arranged, is contemplated. There ?were still in the possession of Franee, 010,000 effeetive men. This number will be brought down to 400,000 di rectly the treaty of peaoe ia ratified. It was believed that Russia wonld send an ambassador to Turin as soon as the ratifications of psase were ex changed. As Russia alwaye looked, or prafosssd to look, npon the active participation of Sardinia in the war as a wanton outrage, this fact was thought to evince a cordial acceptance of ths peace. Advioee from St. Petersbnrg state that the prohibition of the export of Russian prodnoe from Russia has been repealed. A ukase has been issued by the Czar to the effect that the two fleets hitherto maintained by Russia in the Blaek 8m and the Sea of Azoff, are not to be reinstated. The whole naval administration for that quarter seemed to be suppressed. Intelligence had been received from Odessa that many vessels lying there had received orders, by way of Irisste, to set sail for Marseilles immediately, with their cargoes of corn. A considerable fall had taken place in ths corn market at Marseilles, in consequence of the great qnanti ty of whMt offered for sale. It was believed at Berlin that *at a Cabinet donneil held about the middle of lest month, the English government decided on rejecting the proposition for capitalizing the 8onnd dues on the terms offered by the Danish govern ment. England would, however, make a proposition of her own. Adespa'ch front Paris states that the allied govern ments had sent orders to raise all measures of bio shade which kept Russian commercial vessels In neutral ports, end from Hamburg it was stated that, in consequenoe of Instructions from the Governor General of the Battle ' provinces, the departure of the crews destined for the row boat flotilla of Riga had been postponed, and the su perior staff of the army of the Baltic removed to Riga. The French government denies that any expedition U going out to Madagascar; but tbe aeoonnts from Tonlon ?oonflrm the statement that a foroe was in preparation. The Rnssiaa Minister of Finanoe notified, on the 5th Inst, at St. Petersburg, that a treaty of peace having been signed, the merehant vessels of the Western Powers will be admitted to Russian porta. The blockade of the Russian ports has been raised. An article in the Russian Northern Bh had created a sensation at Berlin, in consequence of its virulenoeagalns Englacd. "Albion," it says, "las lost its prestige, but Russia is the most vigorous of all empires. Simply, Its productive powers are not sufliciently developed, and that makes It poorer than other c tun tries." Tbe new levy in Poland for the Rnssian army was .stopped at the last moment. A telegraph despatoh from St. Petersburg announced it as the first benefit conferred by pssce. Lt Nord thinks that the exchange of ratifications would be effected on the 20th The London Gazette, of April 8, says:?On the 4th Inst., had audience of her Majesty, George Mifflin Dallas, Esq., Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary from the United States of America, to deliver his credentials. The Crimean inquiry was proceeding In London. The evidence against Lord Lucan was the subject before the comni and the statements of inoompttency brought against his lordship, when in charge of the cavalry in tbe (Mmea, bad net been contradicted. The grand naval review at Hplthead was to take place On the 22d Inst., by which time it is hoped the ratifica tion ef peace would be finally arranged. The ships of Avar were mustering in large numbers, and rehearsals of the pi t gramme to be performed on the 11 grand" day were ahncst daily taking place. It Is expeoted to be the gratdest naval display ever witnessed. The provisions of the new measure by which the Eng lish Chancellor of ths Exchequer contemplates the poesi blllty ef preventing English lire iaanranoes from being effected in foreign offices has been printed. It suggests that all persons acting in the slightest degree as agents ia snob esses are to be compelled, under a penalty of ?100 per day, to take a license similar to that taken out by bgUrh offices, and to pay du'y. It is likewise stipulated that every insurance on property in England is to be liable to Snty, whether the policy be issned here or in ? fore gn country. Tbe Waait-Anzevier (Pinssian official gazette) of 6th of April, publishes a decree of the Minister of Commerce, Intended to restrict stock and sbarejobblng on the Bourse. It is to the following eifoct:? The sworn brokers are not to negotiate foreign stocks or shares unless for cash, and when they have been paid up. National shares not completely paid up, provisional scrip, he., are likewise not to be negodated but for cash. Fo: eign shares and loans, on which nothing has been paid, are not to be neg jtiated in any shape, for oasb or otherwise. The Minister Invites the old brokers on the Bourte to avail themselves of the Bourse regulation of May, 1825, by which persons not belonging to the corpo ration may be expelled from the Bourse, unices they are qualified as sworn brokers. lastly, tbe ministerial da ores asks tor information as to tin mode tn whiotrthe propagation of unoffloiai prioe lists may be prevsnted bjr ifmiBUtrittre or legislative MMttr*. Advices from Parte of 8th Inet. says:?1The commission of Austrian and Russian officers charged with the recti fl cation of the fronUer of Moldavia are at present In Parts awaiting the orders of the Congress to set oat on their mission. It Is said that the Russian llenlpotentleriea propose] that Count Boo), Aali Pasha, and M. do Dourquoney should form the commission for the definitive arrange ment of the Moldo- Wallechlcn government, but that the proposition was not accepted. It is probable that the choice will fall on parsons who have not tare a a direct part in the Conference. ? the Patrie, ot April 7, says that Coant Orloff has re ceived communications from St. Petersburg informing him that bis presence U necessary there, in order to av, slst at a grand diplomatlo council which is to take plase at the end of the month. The Patrie adds that he will be replaced at the Paris Congress by M. Titoff. The Paris Afoniteur, of 8th of April, contain* the follow iz-g:-* In om sequence of the nnfavorable accounts from Paraguay relative to the meaner in which emigrants are there treated, the French government has suspend ed, until farther orders, the granting of passports for that country. Colonists who feel desirous of proceeding to Paraguay are, therefore, ieoommended to wait untu the situation of foreigners there shall have been plaoed under belter regulations. We extract the following from the Gibraltar Chronicle, of Marsh 29:?-The iron screw steamship Mlno (of Barce lona), Captain German MarqnUlas, which was on hsr way from Barcelona, Valencia and Malaga to Cadiz and Liverpool, came into collision, about 2 A. M., off Tori fa, with the British sailing transport Minlen, which left our port jesterday, at 12 o'clock noon, in tow of the Bus tler steamtug, and, melansholy to relate, the eteamer, which was going at the rats of ton knots an hour, sank five minutes after she struok, and eighteen persons, it is feared, met with a watery grave. Capt. M&rquillas Is suppored to have gone down with the vessel. There were, we understand, on board the steamer 116 persons, in cluuirg the crew; twenty one only have been saved, of whom ievent?en belonged to the ere <r. The names of the four paisengera are Don Hdnardo Ileredla, Donna Maria Heredin, Doana Trinilad Heredia, and Don Joss Fra polli, who were pioked up and brought here by the Minden. I The firm of Meiers. I.yers, Walker & Co., large bast | India and general merchants, have announced a suspen sion of payment. They are stated to owe ?200,000, while the unsold produce they hold and whloh cost more than ?220,000, oen only be realized at a heavy depreciation. Mr. W. O. Young, shipowner, broker and insnranoe agent, has likewise failed. His liabilities, exclusive or thoBO npon insurance policies, are stated at ?120,000, a considerable portion of which has been inonrred in con nection with the before mentioned bankruptcy. Oar London Correspondence. London, Tuesday, AprilS, 1856. The Treaty of Peace?The Effects Becoming Visible?Open ing of Russian Poiis?Effects on Commerce Generally? Latest Intelligence. Despite the water-tight qualifications of the Plenipo tentiaries to the Paris Peace Cong rem, drops of intelli gence begin to ooze out of the terms of the treaty of peace. The Dibats, under the signature of " Do Sacy," (its redacUur en-chef,) la beginning to enlighten the public on the anbjeot. In its number of yesterday, It publishes anothtr article (the first I sent you by last mall) indicat ing the terms of the treaty of Paris, especially the pro positions introduced in devslopement of the fifth article of the Austrian propositions, which firmed the basis of the treaty. It is stated that the Russian plenipotentiaries did not defend the retention of the military arsenal of Nloolaleff, nor any of the military establishments in the Blaok dee or the Sea of Albff. Sebastopol will not be rebuilt. All the Russian forts in the Blaok Sea, from the Caucasus to the limit of the Russian territory, not fer from Baton at, will be destroyed and never re-established. The Russian forts to the south of the Caucasus are to be retained. The Asiatic frontier, between Rossis end Turkey, wUl be rectified without injury to either, end in snob a manner as to put an end to all dangerous discussions. It is clearly understood that the Russians give up their re cent conquests from Turkey, and re-enter immediately Into their own territory. Turkey has demanded an indemnity for the expenses of the war, and has revived old claims for compensation for the repeated occupations of the Principalities by the Russians. The Russian Plenipotentiaries have opposed this oleim, and the Congress has not yst come to a deci I sion upon it. The fortifications oi^the Aland Islands are not to be | rebuilt. There are to be no fortified barracks, entrench ed poets, ot redouts. As to the Principalitlea, nothing has yet been decided, excepting that a "new organization" is to be given, and that it is believed the Plenipotentiaries will choose three of their body as commleironera, to proceed to the Princi palities end make inquiries on the spot as to the best so lution of the question. Whether the withdrawal of the Austrian troops should be immediate, or should be post poned until peaoe and order in those countries shall be secured, has not as yet been decided. ? Am regards the withdrawal of the Austrian troops from the Prinelpalltiee, a telegraphic despatch announces that it has actually oommenced. This, however, requires confirmation. A Sardinian paper (the Opinione, of Turin,) gives the following?it'says from an authoritative source?as the articles of the treaty of Paris:? 1. Neutralization of the Black Sea, in whieh Russia is allowed to maintain armed vessels for the defence of the ooast. 2. Nlcoleieff to be reduced to a commercial port. 3. Russia accepts the consols of foreign Powers in the Black Sea and the Baltic. 4. Non-rr construct ion of Bomarsund. 5. Russia gives up a portion ot Bessarabia, inolndlng the fortress of Ismail. 6. Renounces the exclusive protectorate ot the Princi palities; and 7. Renounces the protectorate of the Greek subjects of the I'or'.e. 8. The Dannbe Is open to the flags of all nations. 9. A commission is to be sent to the Principalities to examine the state o* public opinion and the wants of the country, and to study and fix the new frontier of Best arable. The Timet, in ita second edition of yesterday, in its Pa ris correspondence, nays:? The documents which hare already received the signa ture! of the plenipotentiaries are in number fire, namely, the treaty, or instrument de pair, properly so called; an additional article (not act) relative to the evacuation of the Hnsilan territory; a convention relative to the 8traits?there three are signed by the fourteen plenipo- ; tentlaries; two anneitt, one of which relates to the AlandIs'es, end is signed by Russia, England and France; asd the other, concerning the maritime police of the ' Bleok See, signed by Turkey and Russia only. Sush Is ' tbe c'sniflcation of the papers which now await the ap probation and ratification ot the various governments. 1 give it as, I believe, the latest version, hut withoat es- 1 ?turning the responsibility of its exactness. The above are all more or less true. The question of the rilselpalities is one whioh will give much difficulty, and If the state of Italy Is to be discussed, great opposition will be sbown by Austria. Bat these settlements have* nothing whatever to do with the peace between Russia and Turkey and the Western Powers. It will be a new question, which It is thought advisable to bring before a European Congress. Russia Is nettled against Austria, snd Is drawing closer to Sardinia. Italy Is in a very critical s'ate. and if concest Ions are not made a revolu tion is feared. The effects of the treaty of peace are meantime be coming evlcent. -J Tbe allied governments have sent orders to raise ail measures of blockade which kept Ruasiaa vessels in neu tral ports. The blockade of Russian porta has been raisel. On the 6th inat. the Russian Minister of Finanoe notified that the merchant vessels of the Western Powers would be admitted to Ruasiaa ports, lhe McmiUur publishes the following official notifica tion:? For the time during which they must await the ratlfl. cation of the treaty of peace, France, Great Britain, tiar dinla sad Turkey, on the one part, and Russia, on the other part, have concluded an armistice. It has been consequently agreed that the prizes made subsequently to the signature < f psaoe shall be restored, that orders should he given for the immediate raising or the oxlsticg blockades, and that the prohibitive measures taken in Russia against the exportation, during the war, of Rus sian produce, especially of broadstuffs, should also bs re voke! without delay. Oonsnlar acta and the tormalitiee required of navigators and merchants will be provision ally carried ont by the agents of those Powers that con sented to take charge officiously, during the war, of the in'etests affecting the subjects of the belligerent States. Tbe corn trade is lookirg up, aad the Hamburg housee anticipate very brisk business. The suspension was announced yesterday of Messrs. Saunders & Harrison, seed crushers, oil refiners and soap makers. It created great surprise, the firm being in ex cellent credit. The liabilities are supposed to be about ?60,000, of whioh the amount due on acceptances is said to he ??0,000. The assets are thought likely to yield lbs. In the pound. The disaster ii attributed to the re geV.on In prioee omwequvat upon peace, th? hov* bCtaf large holders of produce, ml many of their reeeot sales htriig been otaceM on an option allowed to the pur chasers of declining the contract on par men t of a aum far less than the depreciation which nan actually oc curred . | The Paris corTeepondent ot the Timti, in their aeeond , edition of thi ? day, eat a:? t he eoncluaion of peace and the withdrawal of ita re Rtrictive measure* by the Bank of France, haee aa yet exercised no Influence on the commercial situation ot I'aiia.

Goods ot every description have of ta'.o considerably risen, and their ?ale has acsordmgly become difficult. Foreign com miaslcn agents hesitate to accspt the new prices, and tne maculae'-urera, obliged to augment the wages ol ths operatives, and to pay very higl tor raw materials, cannot consent to an abatement. An advance of from '& to 25 per oent has taken place in the pi ice ef diamonds, which are being bought up lor Rue ia. The ewcrounta from the induatiinl districts are Batnfao tory. At Rouen, Mulhou.-e, Lyons, be., the maou'ac toriee are all busily at work, mad transactions ore.ty ac tive. Wool and allk maintain tneir firmness.

The stock remaining in the market on Saturday waa 30,885 metrical quintals. At Marseilles the large selea ot grain by auo ion, which recently took 8lace, aad the announcement that thi Emperor Alexia er having raised the prohibition to export corn, an en tire Russian fleet, laden with grain, had cleared out of the Danube, partly bound for Marseilles, had caused a further depression of about 4C per measure or 100 lit re i. On the 6th hard wheat ol Algeria soil for 38?. aad S8i. 50c. The growing crops all over the coon try present the most cheering appearance. The deficiency in the pro duce of last year, cfflciaUy estimated at seven millions of hectolitre*, has been in a great measure made up by foreign importation. Frcm August, 1866, to the 1st In stant, 4,fi00,000 hectolitres were landed la F rench her bois. The remainder can be easily procured before the 31st July.

A letter from St. Petersburg, under date March 31, says as follows:? __ , , __ A telegraphic dor patch from i'aiu, received at XI o'clook last night at the Imperial ChanceUerie, brought us tbe pleasing tidings of the conclusion of peace. The Journal de St. PcUrtbourg published about midnight am extraordinary supplement to this effsot:?"A telegraphic despatch from the Aide-de-Camp General Count Orluff has uncounted to the Emperor that a treaty of peaee | was signed at Pans the 18;a (30!h) March, at 1 o'clock in the afteraoon." \ . The clubs, the cafh, the public tbroughfares, ware, during the whole of thle day, encumbered by an immense crowd, all anxious to learn particulars. The sensation is immense and profound, AT the journals of this morn ing i"" published the news in large letters at the head ol their columns. ( At midday I assisted at one of the finest military spec tacles that could be giveh to the pubilo. A grand review took place of tbe whole ef the reserve corps and the Guard, the orews of the fleet, and the active divisions.of St. Petersburg, to which were added the eailets and the militia. The Emperor arrived cn the ground, accompa nied by the Grand Dukes, his brothers, and rode slowly along the of the troops, who amounted to at least 76,000 men. The guns ot the fortress and the beUB of the churches hailed lh? official announcement of the trtaty of pease. His M tjesty and the Grand Dukes were received with leal enhualasm, and when the cortege had returned to the pa'aee the soldiert had much ciffijultv iu keeping back tne crowds that gave expression to their Jov and grati nde by the loudest cries. Ttiis evening there is a reception at the Winter Palace, and to-morrow a T't JMum wtU be executed in the ctaaptl. Yoa will see tb?n that peaee baa be*n hail* J by the people Of St. Pe tersburg with great de nonstrationa of joy. ^ [Berlin (April 7) Oorrespandence of London Times.] m While the Plenipotentiaries of Russia are doing so much in Paris to convince the world that warlike dreams of re nquett are & rover banished from the imperial counsels, i? <1 that a new line of tactics, dicta tod by political econo i y, has taken their place, the borne government finds it necessary to keep up for a time, and in some degree, tbe belliooi? strain, and take its time in modifying its martial key. Thus on the Slat instant there was a grand representation at the theatre to St. Petersburg, in oommemoration of the victorious entry of thealliei into Paris, and the receipts are to be appropriated to the lunds of the Invalides; simultaneously with this theatrical celebration of that anniversary, theie ware I ! other demonstrations of a more general kind. The ' Northern Bee is permitted, or instructed, to keep up ita diatribes against England j^but, of all the Powers, Austria is made the moat to (eel, In the person of her Ambassador, what the nature of Russia's eentiments towards her are. The Russians, cf all parties and shades ot feeling, are re presented as varying only in the degree of their aoimoeity to Austria; In this country (Prussia) the same feeling Is, perhaps, less acute, but it has all the de*per root and Inveteracy from being chronic. The following remark of a Russian ot good stacdlog in St. Petersburg is believed to be characteristic of the general fading on the subject cf the peace:?"Peaoe is welcome to us, though It waa not longed for. We must accept it because we want It, not becau/e we wish tor it." The strain in which the pbilc-Ruislan journals en the Continent, and still more the Russian correspondents in the different cities of Germany and France, speak of Rus sia is In precisely the same key, though come what more boidly in tone, as that of the Austrian press when speak irg of the inclina'i ins of Austria; alliance with Franoe is tbe key tone, the construction of the military lines of railway in the Interior is the doninant, and the sub-do m'riant is tbe management of pnblie opinion on the Continent. These three elements of the present policy of Russia are to be found expressed in almost the same words as above in a great variety of Ita organs and ex positors. As many aa ten journals in the Russian inte rest are spoken of as arranged for establishment in Germa ny in the course of ttis year; and though this Is either an exaggeration of the Intentions < f the Russian govern ment, or a visionary plan not likely to be executed to, ite full extent, It is certain that great endeavor* are be-' ing made to realize the idea ' in general orders the Emperor has expressed his thanks to the Admiral General of the fleet, the Grand Duke Con , stantlne, to General Berg, and other high effieers, for the1 exemplary state In which he hae found the fleet and tt)e aimy dating bis tear in Finland. The Emperor ie be lieved to have returned to St. Pstersbarg on the 39th alt. You have doubtless published my tolegraphio despatch of yeiterday to the effeet that the exportation of oorn frcm Russia is now permitted by that government; this waa the tenor of a private despatch forwarded from a re spectable house in St. Petersburg to a merchant in Ham burg. and the QceUrreichische Correepondenz has sines con firmed this news as authentic. This resolution of the Russian government appears to have been taken sudden ly and in anticipation of the negotiations then going on in Paris in eosneeUon with it, for my owa information, forwarded to von on Saturday, 6th, and since confirmed by tbe official Dresden Journal, only went to the extent of indicating that snbjeot as on the order of that day for discussion by the Conference in Paris; the Russian Minis ter of Finance had already, on the 4th, affixed a notice to this effect In the Exchange Building at St. Petersburg. The visit of the Dowager Empress of Russia to Germs - ny will take place earlier than was at first expected; in stead of waiting till ths end of June, die will set out In tbe month of Msy. This has perhaps been eaussd by the alteration In her niece's wedding day, Prinoess Liuria, who is to be married here on June 11 to the Prince Re gent of Baden. V ?? Cnmpton Difficulty at Washington?

Her Majesty 'a government, I said, would still abide by that effer, and thought it would be the fairest and most unliable manner of arriving at a settlement of the question.

On one of the first cays of the present session a question was put to my noble friend at bhe head of the administration wtth regard to the production o: the pa pers relati g to America. The answer of my noble friend on that oeomuou was genera), and did not intimate that any pe person either branch of the American question woulO immediately be produced. But a few days later tbe ubjset was revived, and then my noble friend stated that, although that portion of tne question vhleh related to tbe recruiting was still in the nands of the govern ment, yet that portion which referred to Central Ameri ca, and whict had been tee subject ofa separate cor reapcadenoe with the government of the United tit*ten, had been concluded, and that, consequently, the papers might be prcduoed to the House. That answer was given by my noble friend about tvo months ago, and within a week or so after the opening of the seeslcn. (Bear.) Now, let the House observe the posi tion in which we are plaoed with respect to this impor tant question. I certainty am the last man who would with to interfere with the discretion of the government as to the time of producing papers upon a great political subject; but my no?le fi-ecd told the House in the be girning of February that th. time had arrived when the documents relating to tbe Central American question ought and should be produced; and yet to this hoar we have eetn or heard nothing ot those papers. (Hear, bear.) A few days ego, indeed, after a long delay had taken place, another quest! >n was addressed to my noble friend upon the production of those despatches, and we were then told that the Foreign offics had been si mmh occupied of late with other matters that it had not been possible to prepare them. That was, I think, in the cotn ratt.cement ot tbe present week; and still we have no de finite prospect before us as to the time when these docu month tire to be produced, (llear, hear.) Now, I do not propose to give an opinion upon the question whether the papers should be produced or not; but 1 do confi dcntly say that their produoti n oug it not to be delayed from week to week and from month to month, because persons In the Foreign effioe are much oocupled with other matters. (Htar.) The subject is a great deal too important to aliow any obstacle of that kind to inter vene (hear); and what I would put to nay noble friend and to tbe House, with great confidence, is this, that either the papers ought to be produced, or else we ought to understand?and, 1 confess. It would be Car more agreeable to me to hear this than even to have the pa ps r??that, although the oorreapondence of last year was concluded, yet the subject has not passed from the baids cf tbe government; that no nlUmatiun, so to epeak, wl'h respect to Central America, has been ex changed between the two governments; but that minis ters still entertain tbe hope that by friendly communi sa ilors with the American govern me it the question may be brought to an amicable conclusion (Cheers.) For, sir, it appears to me that this Hiuse will Incur a very heavy respooHlbi ity if, after we have been told that the government Las ceased to deal with n question of this uatuie, we do not demand information with regard to it. (Hear, hear ) Where the responsibility of the government ends tneie the responsibility ci th* House of Common* begins. (Hear, hear.) And what happens? While we thua go on from month u> month?while l'arliamont is silent on the quest ton?though 1 do not want the voice ot I'atliametit to be heard as long as the government feels that an amicable arrangement may be concluded?while our mouths are kept thnt from tne want of official infor mation, other voices go forth?(hear, hear)?other voices which, 1 must say. have sounded a note the most op posed to wisdom, to justice and to peace, (hear, hear, at well as to those friendly?1 would almost venture to ear ? fleet ionaU?relations tbat I am sure every man in this house would wish to ese prevailing between Great Britain ' and the United States. (Cheers.) It is believed, or at least rumor*d, tbat the Minister who has recently arrived America is armed with initrnotions and powers that will enable him to deal in a friendly spirit with this question, and I trust he will be met In a corresponding spirit by oor government. (Hear, hear.) Do not let my noble friend suppose that I am anxious for the pro cue 11 on of the papers to whloh I have referred If the mat ter is still in the hands of the government. What I smt Is this, tbat If he and bis colleagues have done* ----- Y with the question we should he informed of all the ' steps they have taken, in order that we may be in a posi tion to judge of our own duty. 1 have spoken or the un wise and inflammatory language that has been held in other quarters by what are taken to be organs of national opinion. 1 may also speak of rumors that I think are calculated to neate uneasiness in the mind of every mem ber of this House. For examp'e, there is a rumor?un authentic. and I hope untrue?that additions have been made, or sre about to be made, to tbe military force io Canada. I hope that before any additions are made to the military force in British North America, in tbe pre sent state of our relations with the United 9tates, this Boose will have an opportunity of utterlog its voioe with rsgatd to those relations; for I am oonvinosd that when ever the voioe of this House Is heard it will be so in a manner calculated to promote the interests of peace and good neighborhood between the two countries. (Cheers.) I think my nobis triend will feel the fairness of what I have stated?viz., that If he and his government bave dens with this question the Home ought to be.1 Sat In immediate possession of the papers; but I would ] tr rather hear from him that he has not doneij with the question: that, In the present state of the diplo matic arraigements of the two countiiee, there is a pos-1 nihility or likelihood of farther communications taking ' place between the governments; and that he still enter- H tains the hope thai, as regards the eon tee ted claims in j Central America, a perfectly good understanding may be i| cstihHshed between Great Britain and the United States. ?' (Cheers.) Lord Palmkrotok?My right honorable friend known a* I well an anv man what in the organization of the various ' governmental departments, and how the bueineu la each of t.hem is performed. He knows as well an any man , that thoee capartments, efficient as they may be for gene en, axe not calculated to deal quickly la ral purposes, are not calculated to deal quickly in extra ordinary and unexpected ekrcumstanoen; yet my right honorable friend has blamed the government, and the Foreign office especially, for not having jiro duced these papers at an earlier period. My honorable friend has referred in a slighting manner to the other business which the Foreign offloe has lately bad to transact. ("," from Mr. Gladstone, and general expressions of dissent.) I big pardon, be has dtneso. ("No, no.") Now, the Hi use mast be aware that a most Important aad difficult negotiation has juet been taking piece, la which the Foreign office has been the department chiefly engaged. It cannot either forget that from the commencement of the session there was, for a time, a g, tat pressure upon the Foreign office tor the product! n of the papers relating to the siege and capitulation of Kars. The collection oI th w? papers re quired great cere and attention on the part, not of parte 11s holding an inferior position in that department, bat on the pert of thoee holding the higher positions in that < illee. and those papers have been laid before Par liament. (Hear, hear.) As regards the papers con nected with the Central American question, I can only say that they are nearly completed; and I trust to be able, in a very few days, to lay them before Parlia ment. (Hear, hear.) I must say, w^th regard to tills Hufject, that 1 entirely decline to follow the example or to be led by the exhortation of my right honorable friend Into entering into the disouseion of a question the cir cumstances connected with which have not vet been laid before this House, and I am eontent to wait for the judg ment which the Honse may pronounce when it has be fore it materials upoa which to form en opinion. With regs?d to the question of my noble friend, I can only say that I believe the document to which he has alluded is a correct-copy of the communication made by Mr. Cramp ton 'o Mr. Mercy upon the instructions which he had re ceived from I/ira Clarendon; but, at the seme time, I think that it must be obvious, even from the passage which my noble friend has read, that no inconvenience could accrue to the public service from any accidental delay, because the instructions upon the part of I.srd Clarendon bad already bcee communicated to Mr. Bu chanan, at that thus the Ambassador of tha United States in this country; and I think that that will be seen from the papers which will be shortly laid before this Home with regard to the Central American question. The British Search for the Pacific. The Dublin Evtn 'ng Pott of April 7 publishes the fol lowing important communication, received from the Galway foundry and ironworks, Merohant roalandNaw Decks:? ? v Galwat. April 7, 1859. Put?1 beg to acquaint you that har Majesty's sterner Tartar, 24 guns, which had been sent by government on the 20th uit., in search of the 111 foted steamer Paeiflo, arrived here last evening without obtaining any informa tion *f the missing ship, although the Tartar proceeded as far as 26 deg west and about 66 deg. north latitude. On the 29th ult. she met the American ship Joseph Badger in gnat distress, with four feet of water la tlie hold, bound to London from Celeuttn, and supplied her with provisions and an offioar and sight men to assist in navigating bar, as all hands were qulta exhausted pump ing. 8he met two other shlpe, but got no information. The Tartar, being one of the festest sorsw propellers in her Majesty's navy, having t^ade all speed to the nearest Slut oa the weet eoatt of Ireland, to eommnnioate with e Lords of the Admiralty, Is another proof that Galway stands predominantly before any other port for tne trans mission of the maus to America.

Hamburg is, perhaps of all the maritime nations of Europe the rnoet Interested in the B?lile trade. The com bushwea is almost eic.urive'r centred in the hand* of our merchant*, who ae?? as intermediate agent* be tween Russian sellers and foreign buyers. Tne ooro, rleegiccus reeds, and ether territorial production* of Kua>U are all paid for through the medium of Hamburg bou.-es. The Leva of the fortunate conclusion of peaoe wee conre inrs*tl7 reoelred here wltlr greater demonstra tion- of joy than anywhere else. Every body an' lei pa tee that tbe moment communications are re opeued a new and brilliant era will commence for the commerce of the Northern nations. At the Boon* of this day, numerorB eamplre of cereals, deliverable In Russian har bors at ihs opening of navigation next May, were ex hibited. Notwithstanding the eagerness cf the eellera to isrtnee speculators to purebaee their grain no bargain of any importation was concluded either j asterday or to day. The prices of all sor a of cereals were merely Domical. Rye in particular found no boyera. fele giephic despatches just teoeived from the-three Russian Baltic* s a e that measures were being taken to a nvev to the coast the enormous quantities of grain ae cumulated duiUg the last two or three years In tl e stores cf the interior. [From the londou Times, April 5 ] The ennounseirent by Lard I'aimers ton last night of the removal cf tbe blockade both in the Haltic and the Iilaok Sea created satisfaction to-day in the city, enpecl slly as news was simultaneously received by telegra >h that the Russian government have rescinds! ihs prohibi tion against the exp >rt of wheat from Russian ports. As regards the trade of the Baliie, the withdrawal of the blockade can have nothirg more than a nominal effect, since tbe opening of navigation by toe breaking up of the Ice doee cot take place till some- time bet ween tbe end of April atd the middle of May; but in the Ufaok Sea, owing to tie vast number of vessels a'ready congregated there, it will be of great Importance. At the same time It is seen that, unless Russia rtciprocates the courtesy of the allies, by forthwith admitticg their vessels into ter ports, the measure will have ait injurious operation, because It will enable neutral ships to oar'y iff ell tne business. No doubt, however, is enier 1 aired on this bead, and the d resumption is that even in the absence of any noUoe on the subject English, l-'remk and Sardinian vessels will take the risk of entering. Up to the prerent moment no lnstruotiona appear to have been teceivod at our Custom houses to allow vessels to clear for Russian ports; but an immediate Intimation to that effect is looked for. In relation to the prospects of the trade between the twe countries, tte St. Petersburg ndvices continue to describe the most active preparations lor its resumption, while on this side manufacturers and Ironmasters are manifestir g that tendency to look fir new and extraordinary results which In former instances of political changes have led to overtrading and bankrupt, cy. Numerous agents have already been despatched to St. Pete'sbnrg arid'elsewhere, ani a number of unfounded rumors regarding contracts for railways and other public works are already in circulation -a circumstance which, perhap", has partly arisen from the fact that a very large quantity of railway iron intended for the Mosoow line just before the breaking out of the war will now speedily be shipped, the ecntract being still in foroe. ?trkettk London Momre Mabkhi, Tvwday, April 8?1 o'Clock p.

The arrivals from Ireland and coastwise, during the past week, have bien moderately good of oats and oat meal, but otherwice trilling. From foreign po-ta we have received 41,324 quarter* wheat, (of which 14 288quarters are Egyptian.) 4.062 quarters beans, 1 462 quarters pease, 56,092 quarters Indian corn, 7,831 sacks and 22,502 bbls.

There has be?n a very slow sale hern since Tuesday last, buyers fir the most part holding off In the expectation that the Urge supplies now pouting in will have a depressing effect on the mar ket. and enab e them to operate to better advantage. The weather contlnurs mild aud moid, and altogether most ses soiiable. At this day's market there was a good attendance of the town and country trado; however, only a limited re tall demand was experienced f >r wheat and floor, at a de cline of 4d. per 70 lbs. and Is. to 2s. per bbl. on inferior , qna ivies, whilst prime paresis of eaah eould not be bought on materially lower terms. Oats and oatmeal, with a slow sals, may be quoted %d. per 46 lbs. and 6d. per load cheaper. Barley, beans ana peas met with a small retail demand, at previous rate*. Indian corn was more ficely offered than of late, but the bulk cf the Ute large arrivals not having yet come on the market, buyera still hold back, and in the few salsa made to-day a decline of fully Is. per quarter was established. THIS MEWS BY TI1E ARABIA. Halifax, April 23,1856. The royal mail steamship Arabia, Captain Stone, ar rived hero at 7 o'clock this yaernlng. The A brings 811,600 In specie. She left Liverpool on the afternoon of Saturday, the 12th instant; her advice* are consequently three days later than those rsoeived by the Arago at New York. The Bteamshlp Ericsson, the substitute for the 1'aclfls la the Collins line, arrived at Liverpool at 6:16 on tie^ morning of the 121h Inst. < The Cunaid steamship Persia, from New York at 3 P. M. on the 2d inst, arrived at Liverpool at 8:40 A. II. on the 12th?thus making the passage in about 9 days and 18 hours, mean time. Nothing of the least importance had transpired since the departure of the Arago. The Peaee Conference continued its sessions, and the s (fairs of Italy were understood to have occupied atten tion at the latest sittings. The principal Plenipotentiaries were expected to leave Paiis in a fsw days. Captain Donlop, of the British steamer Tartar, whioli went in search of the Pacific, had furnished a detailed report of his cruise to the Admiralty. His search was principally directed to the space between the 56th de gree of North latitude and 10.20 degrees longitude. The two steamers searched separately. The Tartar hav ing a strong southeast gale in her favor, proceeded as far west as 26 longitude on the parallel of 56 deg. Guns were fired every two hours during the night, and a vigilant look out was kept during the day. Unfortu nately the search was totally unsuccessful. Nothing whatever was seen or heard of the Paeiflc. The Tartar paased many outward and homeward bound vessels aid spoke two. Cept. Dunlop is confident that the Pacifio oannot be south cf latitude 63, or else oh* must have been fallen la with. March 29th, the Tartar spoke the Amerioan ship Jacob Badgsr, from Calcutta for London, leaking badly. He pumped her out and sent a midship man and eight men to navigate her into pert. The Tar tar has again put to sea to continue the search. The steamers Ericsson and Persia reported nothing of the Pacifle. The London money market had undergone no material change. Consols wire quoted on Friday evening at 93,V for money. The Liverpool cotton olroulare of Friday evening, 11th ins'ant, report an active epeculative demand for cottoa, at a slight advance upon the quotations advised per the Asia. The business of the week amounted to about seventy thousand bales. Provisions were firm, and In some caeca a shade higher. THE CONFERENCES.
