IMPORTANT COMMERCIAL NEWS. MORE FAILURES IN ENGLAND. ANOTHER ADVANCE IN THE RATE OF INTEREST. DECLINE III COTTON AND CONSOLS. Ipeceh of Minister Dallas on the Sepoy Mutiny. Reported Ministerial Troubles in Spain, Ac., Ac., Ac. Hie steamship Niagara, from Liverpool at 1 o'clock P. II. of Saturday, the 7th inst., arrived at Halifax at 12:30 A. M yesterday. The N. sailed from Halifax yesterday at 5:16 A. If., for Boston, where she will be due thin even tag. Weather cloar; wind southwest. She brings ?33,000 in spec to for Halifax and ?88,968 tar Bofcton. Politically the news by this arrival is merely intcreet tag, but financially it is of the highest importance. The Continental news is not of a particularly important Aeacrtption. The pressure in the money market was again excessive, consequent on the advanco by the Flank of England of its rates of discount to nine per cent The advance caused BO diminution in the demand for money. Urgent calls for relief were being made upon the gov ernment from various quarters, but the Times thought any mich action unnecessary. The i'aris money market was unsettled, but there had yet been no advance in the rate of discount. A considerable decline had been experienced in the Liverpool cotton market, tbo market closing very dull. Sales of the week 22,000 bales. The Liverpool breadstuff* market was quiet with a de ?lining tendency. The Liverpool provision market was very dull. lard was considerably lower. The prohibition upon the export of hides, ftc. , from the Baltic had been removed. The United States steam frigate Niagara left Plymouth for New York on the &lh instant. This Collins steamship Atlantis, from New York 27th olt., had not arrived at Liverpool at 1:16 P. M. of the 7tli Th'! steamship Vanderbilt, from New York Oct. 24, arrived at Southampton a; 9 30 A.

THE MONETARY PRESSURE. financial alla.rn were still paramount in Importance. On Wednesday, the 4th Inst., consols fell to 89. There was kncrca*ed anxiety and pressure in the money market, ander the apprehension of a further rise tn the banlc rates, but the heavy payments of the 4th were well met. The suspension of Powles, Brother & Co. was announced, fhetr acceptance* amount to about ?60,000. The rate of discount at Hamburg was advanced to nine par cent. "o tli? ,Mh ui?t tUe Umk of England, as was appro hena?vi i ?;*cd tile rate of discount from eight to the un praredentee rate of uiue |wr cent. This movement fculed tn abate the demand for m<-ney, win. h continued without diminution throughout Thursday. The Jt'nw thinks the continued pressure mtud be mainly eauM'<l by alarm and Ui<' couseqvent desire of every per son to be over supplfe-d. Huirg" stioni were current that the government should be called ujKji for paliatives, hiit the 7'inu t argues that there is bo hhadow of pretext for such a step. The Timet ?ays All classes of the public must be well aware that if the nation should so pitiably lose its self posaew* ion as to give way to pan*. there is but one remedy , and that the gov ernment will be compelled to adopt. There can be no Med however, by formal proceedings, to proclaim the be lief that the financial sense of the nation is still so low as to cause the degrading contingency to bo regarded as not only possible but probable. The funds fluctuated about a half per cent during the 5th Inst , closing at a H'a. From all places on the Continent various sums in specie were said to be in course of transmission to America. The suspension of Naylor , Vlcker* * Oo., of Sheffield, and having a branch house in America, was announced Their liabilities were estimated at from trtOO.OOO to Jtl .000, 000, and their asset* wero believed to be ??00.<>00 in ex cow. Their difficulties were believed to be temporary, and were said to have been caused solely by the cemtation of remittances from America. Messrs. W. Orr ft: Co. , tn the River Plate trade, have also suspended. At a public meeting of merchant! nl <ila*gow, a deputa tion wan appointed to proceed to t>ondon to wait ujkhi the government and urge the neceaatty of immediate meas ures for commercial relief. On the Bth inst. the applications at the bank for money were numerous, but no new difficulties transpired. Consols advanced early in the day, but subsequently a react nn loefc place. The Timr* urges a susjwneion of the export of specie to Mia. and thinks India rich enough to be left to her own resource* The Daily New* believed the Glasgow deputation ar rived In I/mdon on the evening of the 6th. They will It, ti u?derst??Mi , urge upon the government the advisability cf suspending some of the provisions of the Bank Charter act, as was done in 1MT. Movement* with a similar ob jest may be shortly looked for in other districts. The Borough Bank of Liverpool was paying all deposi tors of sums under ?200. Ttie Paris Bourse continued unsettled, but without any great fluctuations The Paris correspondent of the Paily Snm say* ? It has been reported lhat eighty millions of franes in Knglifh bills, and forty millions in French bill*, oo the I'nited Mtatea have been returned protested. ft was rumored in I/mdon on the 4th instant that the Rank of France had advanced its rate of discount, but the Dmilf fftm correspondent telegraphed that the Rank of France had not advanced the rate, hoping to find other Beans of self protection. Ihere is some question as to the right of exporting gold fVotn France. On the 4th the funds In France rinsed Mf. 70c and 07f. bullion tn the Bank of France ta said to have In creased from 190,000.000 franc* to 10*, ooo, 000 francs A Vienna despatch of November 3 aays that the Credit Br.nk has to day taken a step likely to caiwe entenaiv* embarrassment It is In want of ready money and tin* demanded payment from those persons who have obtain ed advance* on government and private stock. AFFAIRS IN liRKAT BRITAIN. OUAKf} *AWgt-*T TO THK DfKW OF C AHMttOO*? KPKICCH OF MR. DALLAS Of THK HICPOY Mt'TINT. The frendom of the City of london and a splen<J|d#wurd were formally presented to th? Puke of Cambridge on the 4th Instant The I/ird Mayor gave a grand banquet ti honor of the event, which *u attended by several cabi net minister* and loreign ambassadors, including Mr. Hallas The Puke of rtmntmnr. in a speech, said that he hud a letter from Hir Colin Campbell emphatically denying that there wm any difference betw een the llovernoifHeneral and him. The Duke extolled the conduct of the British army in India, and advocated it* maintenance in an efll ?lent state of warlike entablishment. Karl defended l/?rd Canning from the charge'! with which he had been assailed, but Intimated that if they should prove true he would aacriffce bis personal feelings to a sense of public duty. Mr Daila*, after making some remarks appropriate to the event of the day, upoko as follows in reg.ird to the Ind an mutiny Hympathy has been invoked from foreign nations In re fen nee to the utate of nmilr< in India I am not here to epeak as to the extent my government or the people of the I'nited State, symj?nthir.e with the struggle of Enc V land against India. That is not the thought I wish to ex pre-??. The thought which I with to exprc?* l? In refe Fence to the treatment thst t? t? br rtenlt In those who h?\e distinguished themselves in the Held of crime In that unhappy region. Nvw# crimes are of various descrip tious? a mutiny and murder ere heavy crimen ? they are dark and gloomy crimes; but tbny were com milted in almost every couutry awl under almost every government. Penalties are speciiically provided for these crimen in the respective criminal colon of various countries. Let such crimen be punishod wherever they occur according to law ? that in to the first and clearest principle of action. But there are other crimes ? crimes at least of another character ? which become so moil strous a* to assume the attitude of enmity to the human race ? not merely crimes committed with reference to the power of India ? not merely crimes inimical to Eng land ? Dot merely crimes inimical to Europe and civizila tion, but crime* which connitute their perpetrators what pirates are, and what canabals in the Fojno Islands are ? enemies of the human race, and meriting not from one nation, not from one people, but from the whole of the human race, summary and exemplary extirpation. This, as it appears to me, is not the language of any particular iudividual of any particular country, but the language of human nature; and although I am un able to gay how far such language may bo concurred in by the great body of my fellow citizens on the opposite side of the Atlantic, yet I think I know them well enough to say that no language can be too strong ? no words too Impressive ? no force too sudden ? no blows too severe, for crimcs such as tho6c which havo been just enacted in India. I/>rrt Brougham q? cuited at the inauguration of Queen's College, IjverpooL In tho course of his remarks he strongly denounotfl the encouragement of African free emigration by France, stating that it was reviving tho slfcve trade, and damaging tho cause of civilization and commerce in Africa. Parliament has been further prorogued to tho 17th of December. The Kings of Sardinia and Greece have each subscribed ton thousand francs to the Indian Relief Fund. The Ijoudon Timet has an article ou Central American affairs, and hopes for an amicable adjustment of all pond ing questions from Sir Wm. Gore Ousoiey's mission, also an early realization of tho projected canal across tho Isthmus. Np further attempt has been made to launch the [/>via than. An examination showed that their was not the least twist or deflection in the ship, ami that she nits as fairly in her cradles as she did on the morning of the attempted launch. There is now no more liability to settle Ml there was before. The 2d of December is tho day fixed for the seconl attempt. The engineers aro confident of a gueccssfcl result. A suit in the Admiralty Ooort by the owners of a cargo on board the American ship Andrew Foster against the owners of the American ship Tuscarora, for causing tin loss ol the former vessel by collision in the Irish Channel, has resulted in favor of the owners of the lost cargo. PRANCE. The Timrs Paris correspondent says: ? It is pretty certain that the Emperor is much annoyed at the turn things have taken in the Principalities. Neither the Austrian nor the Turkish Ambassadors has been invited to Compcigne. Someihing serious must bo going on at this moment at Constantinople, if it be true, as reported, that M. Thouvenal has suspended relations with Keschid Pacha, though not with the goverhinont. It is added, that M. Thouvenal has been left alone in the matter. The Indrpmdmce Brig* asserts that recruiting for tho English service is going on socrotly in France, and 100 francs is given to each recruit. BELGIUM. The ministerial crisis continued. If. de Brooker had been called in by the King, but had not succeeded in forming a ministry. A dissolution of the Chamber wm ? considered probable. AUSTRIA. A reduction in the Austrian army is said to be positively decided upon. It will b? the largest reduction since IMm Thirty generals are to lie plnrod on the retired list. It is believed that fifty itiillions of florins will be saved yearly by the reduction. PRUSSIA. A Berlin letter says that most of the German States have nc titled the Prussian government that they adhere to the measures projected by Prussia and Austria in the HoUtein question. It i- reported that the British government have written an official note fo the I>!et, claiming Justice for the Duchies. A late despatch says that England , Franco and Russia havo offered their good offices in the llolstein question. A Berlin letter of the 6th inst. says: ? The ?talcm<-nt that a Convention would be held to consider the affairs of the Principalities and the llolstein question is officially donied. SPAIN. Rumors of another ministerial crisis had been current, but they proved to rest on a slender foundation. PORTUGAL. The lntest date* from Lisbon report a considerable de. crease iu the number of deaths from the epidcmic, and the inhabitants were returning. ITALY. Floods bad done great damage in Dbmbardy.

Thn Ariel, which arrived at thw port oarly yowtenluy morning from Southampton, brought the remainder ut our Loudon tiles to the Jay of sailing (4ih tut.) The I/indon Timet of last date contain* the following trade report: ? The Manchester market hag beeu duller and of a gloomier character than those even of the | ia.it few weeks, and while spinners and manufacturers havo been more pressing to bell, buyers are holding back and making exceedingly lew purchases. Cop yarns are very Hal, and spinners generally have been willing to make a ooiic.cs sion of >?d. to >^d. per lb. on last Friday's terms to effect sales, but without much effect. The failures at IJvcrpool have, no doubt, been a main cause of the gloomier feeling pervading the market. At Huddersfleld on the 3d inst. , the woollen market in almost all branches lias been inactive. Buyers operate but slowly, and their purchases are in small quantities. They offer rather lower prices, but scarcely any reduction is acceded to, which is rather a favorable sign than other wise of the stability of those who have goods to sell and of the contldcDcc they have of a speedy improvement in trade. The Xortk /}ritvh Daily Mail, of Nov. 2, states:? Wo regret to announce that a rumor prevails that the old and respected tlrm of Messrs. Andrew Stewart & Co., of Greenock, have been obliged to suspend pay meut , incon sequence of diillculties arising out of the commercial state of aflairs on the other side of the Atlantic. We have not heard the amount of liabilities, but hope a speedy ar rangement may yet be effected. We liavo news from the French West Indies, dated at Martinique on the 12th of October. The Council General had been convoked for the 15th of that month. The olllcial journal publishes a list of the planters who had applied tor Indian workmen. The number required to fu! til these demands was 10,714. At Singapore, Ka*t Indies, on the 19th of September, gold dust rated ? Malayan, Ac. , 928 25 a $28 75, and Aus tralian KM a $30 50 per bunkal. ARRIVAL OK INDIAN RF.t'l'GKB? IN ENGLAND. The steamship Colombo arrived at Southampton, Kn^r land, on the 3d inst. with the heavy portion of the East India and China mails. On freight the Colombo had three packages of specie, value ?6,2f>6: and a cargo consisting of 2009 bales of silk, 31 cases of shawls, 2 boxes ol shells, 3 cases of tortoise shell. 1 box of ivory, and 41 packages of general m r chandlse. The Colombo had a total of 135 passengers, among whom was bin Sereuo Highness Prince Victor of tlohcu lohe. Several refugees from lndii came home by this steamer, some of them hav ug had very narrow escapes from sharing the melancholy fate to which so many hundreds of the British resuh 'its h.iv ? Im-cii doomed, while other-! are the immediate relatives of those whose lives have been sacra ticed. Among the most prominent of these cases the following may be mentioned: ? Miss Graham, whose father, it will be remembered, was shot by her side as they were making their escape, when, by olimb rng over the side of the vehicle, the young lady tnirasu lously succeeded ita saving her life; they had been resi de n Us at Scalcote, in the Punjab. Mrs. Baker, wh.i was burnt out at Cawnpore, and narrowly eecaped with her life. Mrs. Hunbury and Mrs. Norris, who were secreted and hunted about in the jungle for a month, and finally freed themselves from the dangers to which they had been so long exposed. Mrs. Warden, the widow of Major War den. who died at sea, on l>oard the steamer that was con veying them from Calcutta to Suet. Mrs. Owen, the wife of Sergeant Owen, of the 63d Queen's Regiment and late Superintendent of Roads between Peshawur and lAliore; In the month of May they were compelled to lly for their lives, their youngest child being at the time only 14 days old. The sergeant, who has come home also, is suffering from mental altlictlon, caused by a sunstroke, as we wero informed. Miss Clara Ihinhar, aged 10 years, daughter of Captain I)unl>ar, or the I Oth Queens. who was killed by l bo mutineers at Arrah on the 2Mb of July. Miss Nina Bailey, aged six years, the daughter of Captaiu Bailey, of the 1th Bengal Native Inl'antiy, which regiment mutinied at Dtna pore, and her mother lias since died. The two last named young ladies have conic home in the rare of attendants. The cafes of Mr*. Banbury and Mrs. Norn*, we understand, excited great sympathy in Calcutta, and I/>rd Canning ten dered them every possible assistance in his power. A meeting of ladies on board I be Colombo was he|<l in the saloon on the 23d ult. at sea, near Malta, Mrs Raker, the wife of Major Baker, of the Bengal Cavalry, In the chair. They were addressed by Cant. Held, the oom mander of the ship, who recommended the formation of a committee of ladies on board each voyage to make in quiries among the passengers, with a view of discovering any parties requiring assfctance and relieving them. He handed over to them a b >x ol clothing which be had re ceived from ftic I .on don ladies' Committee, and also a box of warm ^clothing from the ladies of Southampton ; and further staled that a lady and gentleman of South ampten were anxious to adopt an orphan child whose fa ther had fallen in India. The meeting adjourned till the following day, the 24th. when it was reported that three cases had been discovered requiring relief, which was accordingly administered to the parties. whosubsequently , in the most grateful manner, expressed their thanks. On the arrival of the Colombo in dock , the Mayor and other members of the Ijocal Relief Committee went on board, and the three cases in question being brought te their notice, they availed themselves of the Brst opportn nity which has yet occurred by appropriating two ?10 and one Vj notea te the assistance of tiie respective partus.

A womau named Susan was stabbed In the abdomen, and a man named Richard Driscoll was stabbed in the body. Both the tat ter are said to be niurtally wounded. Susan and Dvmcol were conveyed to the hospital in a dying condition. It seems this bloody affair occurred In a dance houfie kept by Alexander Driscoll. at No. 277 Water atrect, near Dover. Four men, having the appearance of Spaniards or Italians, enteral the house, and without any provoca tion commenced the onHlaught indiscriminately. The d<' craped wax standing by the stove when he received tun death wound. TV woman was next stabbed, and Richard Driscoll, who acta ox bartender for his brother, mado an effort U> protect tie woman, wheu the anwmnins inflicted a mortal wound in hm body. The murderer* instantly (led, and Driacoll, although mortally wounded, endeavored to pursue them to effect their arrest, but fell exhausted at the corner of Dover street. On the floor of the saloon was found the sheath of a dirk or dagger, silver mounted, with a small speck of blood ou it. This was evidently drop|>ed by one of the murdererR. The sheath is in the hands of the Stiperin trndent of Tollcc, and will no doubt be of service to the Coroner. It is supposed from the description of the assassins, that they are the same gang who murdered Mr. Vinccnt tu North William street on Monday night.

AKKKST OK TIIHKK ITALIANS ON SUSPICION ? ONE OK THKM PARTIALLY IDENTIFIED, ETC. ETC. The daring assassination of Francis Vincent, the pro prietor of a drinking saloon situated at No. 13 North Wil linm street, on Tuesday night, by a party of for ''.iluus, whote Bole motive my irrd t . ' bhery . real' t quite an excitemeut in tho lower jvirt of the City vem ?rday. From the description given of the murderers by a yritness on the Coronet' 'a tnqiuft, it u believed that thev arc the same idenii< alK'in," who enteral the <.iloon ot' John Seller, No. MB Pearl street, about a week or leti days ago, aad there attemptca to a?su.tsiaatc and nib the proprietor of that establishment. In fact, when we come to compere the descriptions carefully, there is but little room left Cor doubt as far as that matter is concernod. That tlioy were one and the same party the police are thoroughly ?:it fled, and they have taken measures to effect their am -? accordingly. Four Italians were arrested yesterday morn ing on aoenicion, but only one of them, Michael dc U renzo, is chiiwti tii have fx en collected with th<* party who murdered Vinccnt. F.ven his identification is uncertain; at least we should judge so from the manner m whtch the witness Hilton gave his testimony before the Coroner. There appears to have been but one witne*- to the mur der. We refer to Hiltou. He gives a lengthy and minute account of the whole transaction, and has described the a-'-asstns so well that it is very probable their arrest will be speedily effected. There is one |?>int in his testimony which struck us a.-' being verv singular, lie slates th.it Just before the murder took place he rose to depirt from the saloon, wheu one of the Italians called him bark and invited him to partake of some wine withthenit Why the Italians should call Hilton back to lie a witness of the deed they then were about ?> commit Is somewhat singular. | Indeed, unless they intended to murder hiui him also, so that he could givenotntormauon concerning their presence in the sakxj'i on the uiuht ot the murder, we cannot divine why they should have called h;m hack to be a witnem of the Moody drama that was there enacted As far as ciui be a*ety tamed no money was taken from the porsou ot the dooeased. The police ufsxi searching the body found ever a.iS) in bank hill*. *rh? ti Vim ?ut had saved up from his hard earnings. The deceased's watch and chain wa.< found nnr the doorway, as it tw*rt been taken from bis person by the assassins, but had been drop|ied by them in their hurry to escape from the pre mises The assas'-ins liad no don lit counted on an easier disposition of Hilton. Finding that the injuries they hod indicted upon him had not even the effect of rendering him eaaeeWs. they became frightened and concluded to es>a|ie without ett-i ting the desin-d robbery Hilton s head showed conclusive evidence of hard usage at the hands of the Italians, and the only wonder Is that he too was not murdered, for the most strenuous exertions were made by one of the men to knock bis brains out with a ,a'g<" decanter. But the effort proved abortive ? an all wise "rovhlence decreed that there should remain one witness to ixuifrout the guilty partiea with the horrible crime of which they were the per|>etrator*. There do doaht was a tilth man. connected with tho gang who was not seen by Hiltou. Some one kept guard at the door on the outside while the murderers were d-Mng their work inaide and held the door faat wheu Hilton attempted to open it and escape into the street Officer* Minnglc, Quick and others were indefatigable yesterday in their esartton* to ferret out the guilty |i*r ties. They made several arrests on suspicion, and have su< ? ceded so isr in tracing one of the p? r|R>trators to his hiding place It is probable tlmt to day their efforts will lie crowned with success, and that the murderers of tho unfortunate man may lie brought ft justice.
