Our UelutiuM with Ku?Im4 tnd Frurc-Tke MeiicM Qwathn. We hear from two widely different directions vague stories of probable trouble between Great Britain and the United States. The Paris correspondent of tho London Post says that "the relations between England and the United States will soon be critical."' It is not an uncommon circumstance for British corres pondents to assume the prophetic style; bnt it is a little out of the ordinary run for thut stylo to be used in this peculiar way. We hear constantly that diplomatic relations be tween this and that, power are disturbed,uneaHy, critical, Ac.; but it is a great feat for a corres pondent to bo able to say that such relations "will soon be" this or that Is it not pogsiblc that the ubove statement, appearing in the Loudon Post, the ministerial organ, is thrown out to feel the British public, to draw the fin' of the press that her Majesty's ministry may learn what the temper ot the country might be in view of such a possibility T Earl Derby says that "a spirit of mutual forbearance and kind conciliation" will easily smooth away all the unpleasantness that arose during the war in the relations between the two countries. Would he like to intimate that all the forbear ance and conciliation is on the side of amiable England, and not mutual, and that therefore the ministry cannot possibly help it if Burly Uncle Sam insists upon a quarrel ? Would he bint in advance what the trouble is if the dis turbance occurs ? It is a singular coincidence that while the Allantio telegraph gives us the PosVm an nouncement from Europe the lesser telegraph gives ua a not dissimilar ono Irom Canada. We are informed that the statement has been re ceived in the Province from the borne govern ment that "the possibility of trouble with the Unit ed States renders Increased vigilance neces sary on the part of the Canadian authorities." However odd may seem the nearly simulta neous appearance of the paragraph in places so far apart as London and Montreal they may be the most worthless rumors. Yet they follow strangely upon the recent agitation of the Alabama question by the Times and other London papers. We called attention on sevaral occasions to the modifications that had taken place In the British argument, as soon in the press, aud to the evidence furnished in that way that England was nearly ready to adopt our views of neutrality and piracy, now that we no longer had a war on our hands and were strong enough to make those views respect able. It is possible that those articles were the superficial indication of a new and very urgent discussion of the Alabama claims then in pro gress?a discussion that may have been bused on those positive ideas of our rights as a people and of our foreign policy that the Presi dent is known to edtortain. Must we accept these later British paragraphs as an indication that that discussion has failed in its object; th it the claims are no nearer settlement than ever, and that therefore a "critical" state of our relations is regarded as imminent T It is significant that we have a new rumor as to the proposed course of France in reference to the withdrawal of her troops from Mexican territory. Wc are told that the engagement to remove a portion of the troops this month will not be kept While we are satisfied that the Mexican question, as between France and our selves, was recently placed on a tolerably posi tive footing, wo cannot but recognize thut, the Emperor of the French has a convenient wav of excusing to himself any dereliction in tho matter of engagements that may seem necessary for the furtherance of his schemes. The Em peror went into tho Mexican scheme, counting upon it that there would be no interference from n? because our hands were tied by a great war. lie has since nouiinully given it up, but has constantly fought for time in bis with drawal, always in the hope that something might turn np. If, now, be shonlil see the pos sibility of a war between the United States and England, we cannot doubt that he would take fresh breath in his Imperial scheme and seize the occasion to revive tt. This last Mexi can rumor, if it shall prove to be on good authority. Is, therefore, an important Indication of on* relations with England. Mk. Com-KCTOX Sxtthk.?In a recent Wash ington despatch to this journal, in reference to the affairs of the Collector's office of this port, it was said that Mr. Smyttic'a subordinates had been taxed for electioneering purposes, and that the Collector was in a fair way, from ware housing or other perquisites, to realize some forty thousand dollars a year. Those indirect charges have been satisfactorily refuted in ? communication submitted through our columns in vindication of the Collector; hut in order that be may bavo the amplest justice at our hands we ore gratified to say that we fully en dorse that communication. We prcsnmo that our Washington correspondent on the premises was unwittingly victimized by tome disap pointed job or office hunter. From every well informed and responsible quarter touching the administration of the affairs of bis office by Collector Pmylbe he bears the highest charac ter of capacity, fidelity, honesty and scrupu lous regard for the interests or the Treasury. He is not a politician, seeking Ids own aggran disement or that of any cliqne, and hence cliques and politicians, In urging their peculiar claims, are apt to be disappointed. The na tional Treasury nnd the merchants of this city find In Mr. SroytBe a good and taithtal officer, and withal an ?ocompllehed gentleman; nod thus approved he has nothlne to feat. relit leal M??akMM-Th? War Prlnarlo* Ai<? The VCM6 of Thompsot versus Speight, whi<% h*4>ocupled the time of Judge Jones in the 8apert6>n?k)art for the past two or three days, affords an^unusing insight into the fam ily squabbles of politicians, and an ins true tire lesson as to the mode in which primary elec tions are managed, and candidates pnt forward for the support of those unversed in the mys teries of political machinery. The plaintiff is a harbor master, and according to the wit nesses made his appearance at a recent pri mary meeting of the party to whioh he belongs in a very excited condition, " with his hat on the back part of his head," and found fault with the police for refusing to arrest an irrever ent scamp who had designated one of his politi cal friends ae "a dirty little sucker." To this interference with the police the defendant, who is a captain of the force, objected, and requested Harbor Master Thompson, "if he had anything to say about the poliee to say it to him." Whereupon Mr. Hnrbor Vaster Thompson, "with his bat on the baek part of his bead;" made a very low bow* tad la a sar castic tone said, "I'll address you, sir." The gallant captain. Irritated either at the "vary low how," or the "sarcastic tone," then arrested the harbor master, and locked him up for the night in a cell whioh, according to the testimony, did not possess either the accom modations or the cleanliness of a first class hotel. This appears to be the substance of the ease, and it is tor the jury to decide who is to blame 1 hey will no doubt properly consider the evi dence of ono witness, with the ominous name of "Lush," who testified that he bad "taken a drink with Speight;" and of another witness who swore that he gave Harbor Master Thomp son the prudent bit of advice, "Jemmy, you'd better move on." With the merits of the suit we have nothing to do. But we call the atten tion of the unsophisticated voters to the sort of machinery employed to run the primary elections from which emanate the nominations of all party candidates. The scene of this indecent tamily squabble was a republican pvimary, and several of the witnesses testify that the room was packed with democratic roughs and fighting men, hired by one or other of the factions. One leading witness swore that "he took a great interest in elections, and went to the primary to support delegates in favor of Thnrlow Weed." In his cross-exami nation be stated that he had been to a great many primaries ; that he had " taken a hand in" where blood bad been shed; that he bad "loaned money to parties who bad been in terested in faro," and bid been taken up one night with some friends for "playing poker." We believe this to be a fair specimen of the manner in which, and tho men by whom, pri mary elections are run. Yet primaries lie at the very foundation of our whole elective sys tem. Upon their action depends tho character of the candidate* put into nomination and backed by all the power of party discipline. The respectable- portion of the community stay away from, such meetings and leave them in the hands of tho wire-working office holders and office seekers, who run them for their own benefit; and yet when candidates unfit to be named are put into the field the taxpayers suffer th< mselves to be driven or cajoled into their support. It is not to be wondered at that our whole political structure is unsafe when built upon so rotten a foundation ; or that the peoplo turn in despair from these corrupt and indecent factions and seek rolief in commis sions which shall take the offices out of the hands of such managers as tho men who figure in the case of Thompson versus Speight. Departure o? Genehai. Da for Fran ok.? General Dix, our recently appointed Minister to France, left this port yesterday in the steamer New York, en route for Paris, where his family await him. It may be safely assumed that be goes out with such instructions from the President as will result in an early, com prehensive and satisfactory adjustment of our unsettled relations with the French govern ment, notwithstanding the adverse rumors and surmises now circulating between London and Paris in reference to Napoleon's punctual ful filment of his Mexican engagements. Aoting upon the simple requisitions of the Monroe doc trine, of European non-intervention in th-> domestic affairs of the independent Stutos ot I this continent, the Mexican diplomacy assigned to Gencrul Dix w ill need no prolongation of the tedious correspondence betwoen Mr. Seward und M. Drouyn de Lhuys. As we have hereto fore suggested all the special pleadings anil exceptions of Napoleon touching his Mexican usurpation, with which Mr. Seward has bad to deal, huve been finished away by the direct interposition of the Monroe doctrine as the ultimatum of the peoplo of the United States, trom which this government cannot, in any event, recede. Whatever, therefore, may be tho present in clinations of Napoleon in connection with England in relation to American affairs this ultimatum of General Dix will admit of no further evasions. One way or the other there must be a definite conclusion to the contro versy. Considering, too, the high character ot General Dix as a statesman of many years' experience in various responsible trusts, in sll of which he has distinguished himself as a man of rare discretion, steadiness and sagacity; con sidering his valuable ministerial services as a soldier during our late Southern rebellion, and bia thorough knowledge of American affkirs, the Mexican question and the Monroe doctrine, aa may be gathered from his speeches through a series of yours in the United States Senate ; considering his knowladge of European poli tics, languages and society, derived from his studies and travels, and considering his quiat und unpratending character as a Christian statesman, gentleman and scholar, we may say that very few, indeed, of bis predecessors in bis present position have possessed his de sirable qualifications. Such a man on a diplo matic mission, especially at unch a time as this, Inspires that confldenco at horn# and that reapect abroad which can hardly flail in the most Important results in bchnlf of the in terests, the rights, the honor nnd dignity of the United States. Tim Smnatt Dmvatob,?A Washington cor respondent of ono of our slow coach contem poraries says that "tha reported discovery of John ftarratt, the accomplice In tha assassi nation of President Lincoln, serving in the Pope's body guard at Boma, baa created a lively sensation here," but that " the report is regarded in official marten m ?( th eferftoter m the brilliant meteor story fr>W Greenwich ft few days ago" We have only to say in refMf to this that u the brilliant meteor storyf' and the Surratt despatch came to the Hkkald through the Atlantic cable, the one from a correspondent at " Greenwich Observa tory, England," and the other from Rome ; that each of them coat us a good round sum in gold, and that we look for the confirmation of both in due course of time by the European steamers. Tat A380ciArK> Phksb Arrangements.?The attempt to oatabliob a news ftgonoy In oppo sition to tbe Associated Press of thin oity is, as we predicted, turning oat ft com plete failure. At a recent meeting of the proprietors of tbe Philadelphia papers, called together to consider certain prop ositions of Mr. Craig, it was resolved thftt tbe Philadelphia association would remain in the arrangements of the New York Associated Press so long as they should deem it for (heir interest to do so. This is a vwy proper resolu tion, and describes exactly the bond that should unite the members ol the association. :Unless in can be aaadr mutually advantageous it ceases to be desirable as an insti lutiftn. We ; seek uo benefits from it that cannot be squally extended to our associates. It was for viola ting these fundamental principles that Mr. Craig was dismissed from his position. The result of the Philadelphia mectiDg will proba bly have convinced him that he cannot humbug our provincial contemporaries as easily as he calculated upon. Tub Coming Down in Prices.?It is- a great source of satisfaction to the masses to see the pricos of all the necessaries of life coming down at such a rapid rate. The speculators have enjoyed a long term of profitable opera tions, and it is time now that the people, espe cially those of small means, should bo enabled

to live wHKout exhausting every dollar of their earnings in procuring a bare support for their families. The, Western speculators in provisions and cattle are now compelled to throw their produce on the market, for it has accumulated vastly on their bands, and their business must still goon. Hence the ample supplv which has reduced pricos so suddenly, and so opportunely for the poor, just on the ailvmt of winter. But while (ho wholesale quotations show an immense decline it will not do for the retail dealers to maintain dispro portionate prices. They must come down in tbe same ratio as the markets.

Individuals here who lay claim to a good deal of diplomatic sagacity, believe I hoy can delect in the telegram to the Governor General of Canada from the British Colonial Olllco, suggesting tbat, In view of the possibility of trouble arising at no distunt day in the United .Slates, incessant vigilance on the part of the Canadian authorities Is indispensable?a fore shadowing of another wily move by the English govern ment. It I* supposed that the prospect of dilllculty between the United Slates and France, in rrlution to the Mexican question may ha.e been recognised by the British Government previous to the transmission of the abovo mentioned despatch to the Governor General of Canada, and that the word "in" of this telegram was employed as being a much batter one, diplomatically considered, than the word "with." That these precau tionary messm-os proceed from other reasons than the bare posHlbility of trouble arising in the United .stales, those who have weighed the matter very shrewdly suspect; and, in support of this conjecture, it is urged, that during the late rebellion, when trouble did exist in this country, It wap not deemed necossary by the British government that a strong force should be kopt on the southern frontier of Canada, liking these in structions to the Governor General of Canada, togother with the present complications In our relations with France, the impression bere appears to be that the course of England In this case is not so ingcuuous but that it will hear a sinister construction. Financial Walter*. The government now has In its possession ninety three m'Hion dollars in gold, twenty-two million dollars or which Is represented by gold certificates. The gold rec"tpta average over three hundred thousand dollars dally. The Internal revenue receipts to-day were as fol lows:?From collectors, $.'.00,610; from sale* of stamps, $27,7211; from the tax on satarios, $78?making a total of $?28,142.

Indian A flair a- Council with the ('hrvrnara Trouhle Apprehended with the Comanche* and Kiewa*. The Commissioner of Indian AffAirs baa received a communication I rem Charles Bogy aud W. R. Irwin, fepoota! Indian Agents, elating Hurt a council had been held with ths principal chiefs of th* Cheyenne* at Fort Scarab, Kaniaa. on the 12th mat., during whlrh all mat ters of difference were discussed, and the Indians gave their assent to the amendments to the recent treaty. The different murders and depredations committed by the Cheyenne* since the signing of the treaty were referred to, and a demand made for the surrender of an Indian who had killed a Mexican the day previous to tha arrival of tha special ageots. Tbia demand was ac ceded to, although the chiefs manifested their disap proval of the murder. He said that thay dccired peace, and tbat the tribe was not responsible for the set of one member. They also maintained that they should not be held to a strict accountability in every particular, while the United Stales, on its part, failed to redeem lie promise, referring to the delay In paying annuities, and the ucglect to return two Indian rhlldren captured at Sand Creek. On the 14:ta Inst, tha annuity goods for the Arrap&boe* weref.bstribut*.]. The gnod.* for the Chcyennes-will he distributed as soon a* possible. The agents report tbat the Arruparhoe* num bor 8,$00; the Cheyenne*, 600, and the Apache*, 800 These numbers embrace, as nearly as ran be ascertained, all the Indians who have a right to claim the benefit.* of the treaty. An interview was held on the 12th lust, with two < imam he chiefs with reference to the release of a boy prisoner, and it wax agreed that the prisoner should be set at liberty. A request made by the Indians that a saddle and a pair of revolvers should be given in pay ment for the release of the boy, was refnwd. There is reason to anpri head some difficulty with the Ctio?o< lire and Miowas with reference to other prisoners. Mineral Mpeclmeu*.
