OK LATER HOI EUROPE, j ARRIVAL OF THE KEDAR AT HALIFAX. What the English Think of the Southern Confederacy. Extensive Warlike Agitation Throughout Europe. Important Council of War Held in Fari*. The Cession of Venetia to Italy Supported toy France# COMMERCIAL 1NTILLIBENCE, ao?j *e. Haotji, April 18, 1861. The screw steamship Kedar, from Liverpool on the ssorning or the 7th inst. , arrived here at ten A. M. to day. She it bound hence to Mew York. The steamship Niagara left Liverpool at eight A. If. of the Aih inFt , and would sail from (jueenstown on the ?vexing of the 7th. The steamship Palestine, from Portland, arrived at Li verpool at noon of the 6th. The steamship Jura leaves Liverpool under charter to the Canadian line, on the Uth April, for Quebec. The political news is unimportant. Parliament was not to session. It was reported that an English Naval Division had left Malta for the Ionian Islands, where the agitation in creases. The London Timet, in an editorial on the position of aflkim in America, says the prohibition of the African Slave trade by the Southern confederacy Is put forward Merely to conciliate Kngl 'sh prejudices, and believes such ? piece of supertluous self demal will not be long a lhered to. The Tivui in the same article paints to English re sistance in tne ilrst revolution as a warning against forci ble resistance to disruption, which it appears is in evitable. The London Globe, in reviewing the political position, mj* Europe has never been more agitated since 1847. All the French Marshals had been summoned to attend ?? extraordinary Counoil of War at Paris on the 8th of April. The Niagara has not yet been heard of. She Use ?36,000 in specie. GREAT BRITAIN. The London limtt points out that both the American tariffs are hostile to English commerce. In cotton Eng land will have to pay a duty to the Southern States, and ?b the chief exports increased duties, while to the northern States the duties are assuming a positively hostile character England must consider bow she deals with a State which begins with a flagrant departure from the rule of amity. FRANCE. It was expected at Paris that the Bank of France Would soon turther reduce ttie rate of discount. Very warlike rumors continued to prevail in Parii. 9m army is being drilled for war and provided with ?aggage and wagons. i/:tllcuity had arisen in the conclusion of a commercial treaty between Franoe and Belgium. The Paris I'at'ie says the Emperor has written to Prince Murat. disapproving his recent manifesto relative 4* the Neapolitan crown. The Sunday Purls journals are calling for a dissolution ?af the Cor)* I<egislatif, owing to the large number of legi timistx and ultra montanists in the body. The Bourse on the 6th was firmer .

The leading items of Mexican news, Uken out by the steamship Tennessee, which sails this morning, are as follows ? lK>ath of Lerdo do Tejada, on the 22d of March, at Tacubaya, of typhus fever. The deceased was one of the most prominent candidates for the Presidency , and known hroughout the republic for bis industry, historical ac quirements, and groit skill in finances. Reported death of Gen. l'artearroyo, former Minister of War In the constitutional Cabinet. Mlramon's ex Premier, 0. Isidore Diaz is said to have been condemned to be shot at Mexico, Friday last. But this Is not generally credited. Mr. Weilor, the United States Minister, it reported to have awl In his resignation. _ Arrival of a specie conducts of three millions, th~ greater portion of which was taken, and shipped by the British packet. I Stnor Mattt, late Minister to Washington, has been ap | pointed Minister to Knghuid Gen. Uragagoes Minister to Washington. Benor Mora goes Minister to Prussia. Senor Gomez Farias has been appointed Minister to Belgium. General Robles' title of ?'Citizen of Vera Cruz'' his been withdrawn by the Legislature of the Stale. The reason assigned is his participation in the bombardment of the city. All titles of Fxcellentissimo, Sonoria, &c , have been abolished and the address of "Honorable'' adopted in '? their place. Permission has been given by Juarez to the Protestants of the city of Mexico and Matamoroe, to open churches in those cities, for religious services according to their faith. Streets coatinued to be cut through convents at the capital. Since the death of Mr. Lerdo, whoso family has bean, in a laudable manner, taken oare of by the goverament, Juarez's i-Lances for the election of President have naturally greatly increased, and there is little or no doubt now that bo will he or is elected. I am assured from a very excellent quarter that the government gets along very well; the only drawback is want of money. In consequence, it is rumored, that the appointed Min isters abroad have declined acceptance, as the treasury is empty and the government cannot afford to pay six months' salary in advance . 1 leajn also that no Minister will go out to the United States for the present. Mr. Welle r Is said to be very popular at the city, and has more Influence and sympathy than all the other fo reign Ministers together. His retirement from this coun try will be by none more sincerely regretted than by the President and his Cabinet at the capital. Seourity of the roads between this city and Mexico has been re-establish ed, and measures for peace, &c. , are vigorously prosecut ed by thegovernment. Yours, &c. B P. S. ? Thegovernment is said to be busy establishing a new and much reduced tariff, which will soon go into effect. The Flash leaves for New York on thelStb. Vkka Cm/., April 0, 1861. While I penned my lapt, of the 22d ult., auniuncing to you the death of Mr. Minuel Gutierez Zamora, constitu tional Governor of this State, another of our great men was breathing his last. Mr. Miguel Lerdo de Tejada died at precisely the same hour at which our late Governor wat departing from this world's scene, and precisely on the very night and at the very same hour at which Miramon tired his list shell upon the city a year ago. The liberal party has lost two of its most active and honest members, when loss is irreparable. The whole country is mourning the loan of these two well deserving citizens, while the priesthood and Its fol lowers are rejoicing. Vera Cruz already swarms with friends of Miramon, | who, on finding our late Governor out of the way, sjw the reed or discord again. Former aids and officers un der Miramon, and thoso very men who directed the guns and mortars upon our city, are piradiDg the streets of Vera Crux. The only example of energy shown by the general government of Mexico tun been the execution of I)ou Antstasio Trejo, who was found conspiring in the city of Mexico, and consequently caught and shot ten hours afterwards. This TTejo belonged onco to the liberal party, and be haved bravely in the defence of the Castle of i'erote wlitn besieged l>y Echeagaray some two or three year* ago. On evacuatirg the Castle, Trej i came w ah about 100 men . forming the parrleon to Vera Cruz, and hid a prince ly leception. The general government, then established here, con ferred m h:m the title of Gene.'al. and ordered him to the neighborhood of Orizaba against Negrete, at oriztha There this Trejo turned traitor, was bought over by Ne grete through a womw. woo was ssnrinoed for thai pur pose, and since theu traitor TreJ.) has hern a devHed officer in the ranks of Miramon and the church part/. lately he was conspiring with Negri to at the capl'tl, and Kidnapped in time, while Negrete made good liu ?scape. Ir President Juarez follows up nal acts vigorously, take my word eoliing will he b iar4 again of pronuru ii mitvt - 1 and rtvehuii n It <s paid that !"on leidro r>l*z, former M'uiitcr of Mira mon, is also condemned tj bo shot. pfJaf being against him sufficient to deserve a bun?tr?il deaths. lie cert \ nly had an active bind In the robbery of th Brit; ih I *gv tlon.

The pony express, with San Francisco dates to the fltb ?est. , passed here at half past three o'clock this a' tor - uoon, with the following Intelligence for the press ? Sam Kramcwco, April ?. 1881. Arrived on the <Hh Inst., the steamship Cortes, from Panama. Sailed, ship Ocean Telegraph, for New York. Accounts from the interior of tne State represent tho roads in such bad condition that It will require considera ble time before goods cad be transported to the prin cipal mining districts. Not much activity In trade is anticipated before the close of the month, unless operations take place la antici pation of the country demand. Crashed sugar has advanced '?c. Pork declined? mar ket doll. Coal slightly improved. OoQ'ee active and to good demand for all descriptions. Grain market dull Since the election of Senator, Boundary Commissioner and officers for the State institutions, the Legislature tin commenced to work industriously. Throe railway com panies have been granted franchisee for laying horse rail ways through principal streets In San Francisco, being re stricted to five cent prices of passage. Senator McDougal departs for Washington on th? 11th One reason assigned for his departure forthwith Is tho purpose of endeavoring to influence some of the Calif >r nia appointments, about which there is unspeakable anxiety among republUan politicians at the p-ejent time The bill appropriating money for the survey of the btr bor of San Franclico, under the direction of a eorps of United States engineers, to ascertain the necessity of constructing a bulkhead, passed both houses of the L?gis lature. The last Eastern bound stage on Butterfleld's overland mail route has left Han Francisco, and the pony express now furnishes overland communication with the East. Accounts of the damage in the mining regions, result ing from the late storm, represent the loesee far greater than was at first anticipated. The dam supplying water for the principal quartz mines of Colonel Fremont and the Mariposa Company were partially carried off, and cannot be repaired before September, thus reducing the yield of gold one-third or more. Meantime It 1b thought that the damage by the Tuolumne Company amounts to one million of dollars. The Spring Valley Water Works Company introdu o 1 water in their reservoir on the hills near the southern borders of San Francisco on the 4th, from whenco they expect to supply water to the greater portion of the city , in opposition to the Bonsley Company. The United Slates District Court hoe rendered a decision giving to Robeit Morrison $25,000 damages against the Pacific Mall Steamship Company, because the company sold Morrison a ticket and entire stateroom for himself and wife, from California, and then compelled tlAm to give up their room at Panama and each make the balance of the imssage in a room where there were two other passengers. The Breckinridge State Central Committee have not agreed to propose a fusion with the Douglasitee, there being no chanco. except by adopting the Douglas plat form. They have adopted an address acknowledging all as democrats who favor the Crittenden Compromise reso lutions and oppose coercing the seceded States, and have called a State Convention for the 11th of June. The steamer Panama on the 4th brought Oregon dates to the 29th ult. , and British Columbia to the 28d George K. Shield and A. J. Thayer, contestants for the successor ship of Mr. Stout in Congress, arc among the pjissecgers who arrived, on their way to Washington. Also lady Frtnkiln and her niece. Molggs' sawmill, on the Columbia river, had been bhwn up, killing nine men. The Portland papers allege that silver mines have been discovered in rock on Gray's river, at Astoria. The whole of Vancouver's Island, together with the small islands which form the dependencies of tho colony, is now thrown open to pre-emption By a proclamation of Governor Douglass, a large num ber of negroes have been struck from the voters' list in Victoria. A project Is before the British h"me government for a complete exploration of Vancouver's Island. Die plan, says the Othmitt, 1b simply to form two exploring parties each party to be divided into a land and a water party; one exploring the west coast in one of her Majesty's steamships, and the other, with one of her Majesty's gun boat I, to pass up the east or Gulf of Georgia side of the it land.
