It appeared from tbe explanations given by Mr. Hamilton that tbe Collector referred to buss shipped as merchandise, aod net as part of an armament of a vasei of.war, so that according to tho policy of ner Majesty's government, guns migbi. be shipped as roercS.iudiae to New York?and were com monly?but that if tbe guns wore intended for iho">n federatea they would be contraband and liable to relzura. go common was this shipment of guns, Ax., become, tbat it wax only the other day that he bad read an account of how tho German;* was detained at Southampton for some time shipping some heavy siego guns from the )x>w Moor Iron Works. If It was tbe duty or tbe government to send out roving commissioners to 'oek for evidence against the Confederate ritaie?, on what principle did the Attorney General justify tbis permission to tbo federals te ship guuB aud ammunition In tbe broad light of day? The country would support tbe government in au honest aml fair neutrality, but not/tin-/ iooutd be ?o unpopular at to mete out one inrusur*. of jwlicc to one tide aud anoher measure to another.

Ho supported freedom wbore it coat nothing (hear, heart, bu*wheii bis asslstauce was mcst win'od he deserted his friends, as be had deserted Poland. (Hoar, hear.) The honorable baronet concluded by asking whether the atteutton of the Attorney-General bad been called to a rnle obtained l'or a commission to examine toe Pasha of Egy pt and other witnesses at Cairo, to obtain evidence against tho steam rams detained at Rlrkenbead, how long this Investigation was likely to take, and tho probable expeueo of It. and why tbis rule was not nppliod for when vessels were first detained. Ibe Attohxky 0' ?r will simply reply to tbe hon orable baronet's 'laestioos. With regard to his first question, 1 have to say that, of course, my attention has been called to a step which has been taken under my ad vice. The honorable baronet does not uudertUud the nature of these proceedings. There are persons In Kgypt wbo wo heliove are witnesses for the crown. Of course we know perfectly well already what their evidenae is, and when wo got tbe commission wo were obliged to give notes of the particulars, and we gave a pretty full note to the other side. Ibe honorable baronet asks how long the Investigation will take, and my answer to tbat Is that tbe commission is returnable on the 10th of May, which is earlier than tbe earliest day on which tbe trial could tako place. Theroforo, if tho arringement8 of the Court will permit of the trial taking place after next Easter term we shall be perfectly realy.aud tbe commission will cause no dolay. As to the expeneo of the proceedings I really cannot undortake to say. The crown has taken the least expensive mode of proceeding. A single commissioner has been sent out? a cons il fr< m a neighboring country. Of course, II tbe other side go to more expense, tbat is a voluntary action on their part. An to why wo did not apply for a rule when the vessels were first detained, my answer is that wo were not ready to proceed to trial at an earlier period than we aro actually now proceeding to trial; and to ap ply lor a rule earlier would have been unnecessary and | useless. WRECE OF A REBEC STEAMER. [From the Manchester Guardian, April 10.] On Wednesday morning tbe captain and crew of the pplendftd new steamer Matilda, of Glasgow, arrived at Cardiff, having been taken off Lundy Island, where their steamer had been wrecked In a fog. The Matilda leit Cardiff on Monday afternoon with a cargo of steel, iron and coal, which was currently reported to he intended for tho Confederates, and is said to have been reported by the American (Consul to his government. The steamer was built at Glasgow, at a cost of nearly ?60,000, and her trial tr|p had been made from that port to Cardiff. The crew only oscaped with a few things, and tbe vessel now lies many feet under water.

Drouyn de Lttnya, In a despatch to tbe Freaeh Minister in London, dated 20th of March, attesting to tbe conference, suggests that nothing would be more natural, in default or a course unanimously accepted, than to take as a basis the wish or tbe populations. La France says tbat tbe British government is mora Inclined towards these vlows or Franco. An assembly or Holsteln notables, which was to have been beld on tbe 8tb inst. atFlemberg, was prohibited by tbe Austro Prussian Commissioners. In the House of Lords, on tbe 7th inst., Lord Siums bcrt asked if the government bad received any Informa tlon confirming the telegraphic despatch tbat rionderburg had been bombarded for twenty four hours without notice, and that eighty women aod children had been killed, fifty houses destroyed and tbe town deserted. If such was tbe case the Prussian government and tbe mill tary authorities of that country ought not to be counte nanced by any civilized nation. Be hoped tbe Ifeglish fleet would be sent out for tbo purpose or preventing tbe reoccurrcnce or such droadlul and cowardly atrocities. Karl Ri fsa.r. said be bad telegraphed to Mr. Buchanan, the British minister, lor information, hut bad not yet re ceived any reply, and should not be warranted in express ing any opinion till he was better acquainted with the factp. In tbe House of Commons, on the same day, tbe Dmish question was debated;and lord i'ulmerstou predicted satisfactory results from the conferonce.

In connection with tne vote on tbe sworl question we stated in our account yesterday that tbe committee bavl&g charge of the Arms and Trophies Iiopartment bad coino to ibe conclusion to close tbe books alter two P.

Ah tbis announcement has caused no little surprise and indignation, wo deem It proper to publish the notice of the committee, whicb Is as follows:? Nkw Yob*, April 18, 1664. ARMY ASIt NAVT SWOHCS. The subscription for the arm? end navy (words In ths Metropolitan Fair will finally cJo?e on Saturday, the 23d instant, at eight o'clock P. M. No subscriptions will be taken on the books alter two P.

WTLi.I aM T. BLODGfcTT, Chairman. In tbls official announcement it will ltc noticed that no cause whatever is assigned for tbe extraordinary resolu tion wblcb the committoe have recn fit to adont. It iff not a matter of woudor, therefore, tbat tbo outside world are placing tbeir own construction upon tho action, and that that construction is decidcdly hostile to tbo commit tee. The arrangement savors very strongly of. unfair ness, and has tho ugly appearanceoi a deliberate attempt to decide tho sword question in an underhand manner, id accordance with tbo wishes and prejudices of certain fontlomen wbo shall remain unnamed for tho presont. t is a well known fact tbat a majority of the committoc, the originators or thj sword enterprise, nnd most of tbe parties connected with tbo all'air?even to tbo bland and nuavo young gentlemen who have charge of tbe voting books?are all very thoroughly imbued with prejudices in favor of one ot* tbe distin guished generals whose names have been mentioned in connection with the sword. Is it not, to use tbe mildest language, in very bad tasto for such persons to plaoo themselves in a position where tbeir acts will bo open to sucb peculiar critic,smf Is it an act of delicacy on tbeir part to constitute themselves a special committee to de cide who is entitled to tbe sword, when they aro unmis takably interested parties? If tbe committee bavo beon unable to see it in tbls light before, they would do well to revoke their resolution witbot delay. It will not go down with the outside rrlends of eltbor of tbe gene rals, who have already voted, or wbo have re served tbeir votes until tbe last day. No under hand, sccret or unfair means in deciding tbe question wiH bo tolerated. The publio want the business settled openly and above board, not privately and by a few Individuals, who might very readily be tempted to change tbe result by a piece of prestidigitation, in slipping In a few thousand greenbacks for tbis general or tbat funeral, should tbe stato of affairs bo fouhd to require it. r tho voting books are to be closed at two P. ?l or at eigbt P. M., let tbem be closed; but let not another vote or another dollar bo received thereafter. Let tbe vote also be decldeit cornm publico, in the presence of oil who may happen to be there at the time, lbat is tbe only fair, proper, just and equitable manner of doing it. Besides, there Is another light In wbicb It should be re garded. There will ho intense excitement on Saturday about tbe sword, and tbe voting will be very heavy, ft is said tbat many gentlemen are ready to put down thou sands. These parties will be very unwilling to part with tbeir money unless they can see how tbe vote stand* up to tbo last momont. No one. to use a common siting likes "to buy a'ptg In a bag " If the committee persist in tbe coaled envelope system, It is very likely a good deal of this money will be loet to the Sinitary Commis sion. It Is to be hoped, then, tbat this worse than ab surd idea of feecret contributions will be abandoned. Tbe people don't want it; It will prove a detriment to tbe re oeipts, and it can do no good in any manner whatever. TO IBB EDITOR OF Tim KXULD. ... .. . **W Yon*, April 19,1804.
