Since the departure ot last steamer, events of "import great" have occurred in Europe. On Saturday last, an extraordinary courier arrived with despatches from India, announcing that a desperate battle hail taken place in India, on the banks of the Jhellum, against the Sikhs, in which twanty-six ?filters, many of high rank, were killed, aixty-six more or less dangerously wounded, and 2,500 Bri* tish soldiers killed or wounded. One regiment of cavalry is reported to have lied, and, altogether, though claimed as a victory, it looks like a defeat. The defeated Sikhs fired twenty-one guns ia honor of the battle, and mutilated the dead and dying soldiers on the battle field. Another such disastrous victory, sayB a morning paper, and our Indian empire will totter. I enclose you a full account of the battle of Chillianwallah. To insert it here, would mike my letter too long. I shall turn at once to the eflect produced by this disastrous intelligence in London and England. The first effect was a [heavy fall in the funds, which receded 4 per cent. A regular gloom pervaded the city; it was like a dark cloud, darkening the commercial horizon. On Monday, 5tb, the funds opened at the closing prices of Saturday, but almost immediately after the commencenieiit of business they began to decline, and a tall of a half per cent took place. , la the middle of the day, however, a belter leeling f:aiaed ground, and a report having been confidenty circulated, that either Lord Hardinge ?r Sir C. Napier would toriliwith proceed to take the command in India, the market ultimately recovered, and doited at an advance of a quarter per o-nt on the first quotations. Condole began at fJlJ to J, went to 91, and left off at 91 j to .j ; Bank fr'tock closed 193 to 195; Reduced Three per Cents, 9I| to j; Three-and-a-Qnarter per Cents, 92j to j|; Loug Annuities, 9; India Stock, in which a good deal ol business was transacted, 23(j to240; India Bonds, 53s. to 50s.; and Exchequer-bills, 41s. to 43s. premium. It became evident that some step was necessary t" restore confidence. On Monday, Ilunierosein the House, 111 the midst of breathless sih-nce, and said:? Seeing her Majesty's Minliter, the First Lord of the Treasury, in his plane. 1 wish to put to him a question which I have considerable dililnally in so shaping as to obtain a sufficient degree ox information in reply But, attar th? s'elements wbioh we have had la the G-iattlt of Saturday, and also in a prior 6wUil,as to aflaire in Inula the condition cf that country can no longer be a matter of indifference t* any one who looks to the future prosperity of the empire ('beers from all psrta cf the House ) I should bo sorry to prejudge any man, especially an absent man, but certain facts detailed in despatches received three or four weeks ago without refeisnce to the late most melancholy transaction appear to warrant me in asking whether auv measures have been taken by her Majesty's g. vernuieut to place tho army la India under -urn command as that tneie rliall be a confidence boih >u the officers and men, that the army wilt be pnt in po session uf all those advantages ot military art and scii nee of which we. as a clvillz-d pei pie. ought lo obiatc the banetit. (Loud cheers Item ail parts of the house ) It uce* not appear tnat either that art or that science has iaiely been dise p sj i d 1 have, therefore, to ask the government what steps? or whether amy steps- have been iak. n with reference to the subject? (b on J cries of ' hear heat ") Lord J.

(Loud carers tti m liotb rides of the Huose ) The result ot this was, that Sir Charles Napier (the hero oi ftctniie, as lie is tenned) has hern apj onita d CoDiniiuider-iii-Chiei of tne British troops in India, and will start immediately tor his post, with lull powers. This must be a bitter pill to the Last liktirt Dilectors, as he was at loggerheads o i'li tli* m ; mid it is not long since that ?ome very violent letters apt eared in the public journals on the dispute hetwe* n the two parties: the voice ot public opinion was, however, too strong Napier will, howevr. arrive when ali is over. Great anxiety prevails as io the tnulligence ot next llle.il. There has been a crest fluctuation in our funds all the past we?k, owing to the intelligence from Italy, ehd the rite in ?lie French lunds, which has l.een 2 per cent. It is announced, however, this morning, ano partially credited, that fighting haa c< mint net d in Italy between the Atietriana und Italians.

THK CONTINKST The turn of affairs t iken in Italy has tended in no small degree to shake confidence. The Grai d l'uko of Tuecany has Hod to Naples, on board t e ilul|cog?the hospital of decayed monarch*?and E NE MO haB appealed to the powers le reinstate him. Accord ins to tne treaty of Vienna (article 100), Tuscany tails in reversion to Austria, and this power is determined ta interfere. The Contttt'tUximnel, of Thursday (yesterday), says:? War hat commenced in Italy. On the 1st of March, the Austrian and Mode aera troops entered Tuscany, The same day. the Florence government, after having sent General Apiee after this corps, which Is composed of 4,100 men. principally Austrian*, with orders to oppose them, sent a courier to Tnrtn, M demand the Immediate Intervention of the corps of 1&.000 men, concentrated under Gen. Lamarmora, to enter Tuaeany in ooDjuctton with General Aploe, to drive baof. the Anetneus. General Apice is at ths head of 4 000 to 6 MHi eoec. The riedmontese and Tu?oan troops wsre to frrm their junction on the 2d of Marsh, and it is probable that on the 3d.or<th at latest, a collision took pise* bslwetn th?m and the Austrian troepe. This is only anticipating what will take place by a day or two. AoviceHsn horns later "from Paris throw doubt on the assertion of a collision having taken place,; but this vr-y doubt ib doifhttul. Austria has ho much upon her hands in Hungary, that nhe is compelled to he less active than whe would wieh to be. But old Radetxky is too (ond ot fighting to remain quiet. Austria has addressed a note to all the powers of Europe. Its object is to declare and protect the rights of reversion and succession wnich Austria possesses over Tuscany, in virtue of the hundredth clause of the final act ot the Congreas of Vienna. It appears from the vote that the imperial cabinet being pressed by other questions ot more urgent interest (the war in Hungary, and the question ot Lombardy),is notable to direct as much attention to the afl iirs of Tuscany as it would wish; but, in order that its silence may not be interpreted in the light ol its tacitly abandoning of its rights of reversion, it thinks it necessary, in the meantime, to protest, in the most solemn manner, against all political eveuts which have taken, or may take, place in Tuscany, and which can in any way affect the rights guarantied to Austria by the final act of the Congress. The note also reserves to Austria the righ', at some future period, ot taking, in case of necessity, and in concert with the Grand Duke Leopold, all the measures requisite to maintain intact, even by the force of arms, the rights ever Tuscai.y rightly belonging to the two branches of the imperial lauitly. On the other hand, the Austrian cabinet, wl.lie it professes its sincere wish for the continuance of peace, has peremptorily declared to the mediating powers that it Marshal Hadetzky be attacked, he is authorized to march upon Turin, and to occupy Piedmont until such time as the Sardinian government shall have paid the expenses to which Austria mtv have been put by the war. The French government is Eunl to have sent instructions to M Hois le Conte, I to the effect, that it Charles Albert should persist in renewing the war, contrary to the friendly adv.ce of France, he must not look for any more assistance from the mediating powers, England and France being determined, in that case, to leave bHid'tna to her late. At Home the republic still holds ground; the Pope protests in vain ; but it ib rumored, not without the likelihood of foundation, that an expedition will land in Italy, of French and Austrians, and even KusBians, to reinstate him. Belli! lion-end a btilal will be then the order of the day. And what is republican France doing 1 She will HfcEist the deposed sovereigns in -tlieir endeavors to regain their crowns! Tetnpora mutuntur et nos tnutamur in tUit. THE DANISH qt'RSTION AND PBPSSIAOn the 2(ith February the Prussian Chambers were opened by the King in person. (I enclose a full account). In this speecn his Majesty declared that peace with Denmark was all but settled ; and that Fame evening a courier arrived trim Copenhagen with despatches to Count Plessen, the Danish Ambassador, to say the armstice would not be renewed. The King looktd silly enough, and the court, obeyed bis instructions. The Prussian government has been attacked lor having deceived the Chambers, by inserting a phrase relutive fo peace with Denmark in the King's speech, when it knew of Denmark's intention not to tenew the armstice. It did not know of this intention unt'l the evening of the 2(>th. Count Fleeseu did not himself receive the despatches by special messenger, with the denouncement of ine armstice, until he returned from the opemug ot the Chambers ; and did not commuuirate ihe intention of lus government until late in the evening of the same day. In consequence of this step taken by Denmark, the Prussian minister of commerce has made the following communication to )>ersoas engaged in the lialtie trade :? On the 20th alt. the Danish government gave notice to hie majesty the Klog, of the cessation of the armislice of Maitcoe. which expiree on the 26th March To this notice the observation Is appended that the Danish goverrm< nt enter tela* the hope that thie resolution will net occaeion a resumption of hoetilities; and the negotiations for praee opened at London under the mediation of Kngland. permit it to be hoped that even before tbe expiration ot the arinstice, at least the preliminaries of ptaoewill be established. However, a* this result is not certain. I hasten to malto known j the real stute of thirgs to the commerce of the Baltio, and to rrcmmeDd it to tbe prudence which ie commanded by cirrcmrtanees, giving it at tbe ?ame time the assurance that tbe government will take all the measures in its powsr to pievent any prejudice to ermmetct. The Dutit-li government fins addressed a circular 10 ihe different governme nts ot Europe, explaining its reasons tor giving notice oi the termination ot the armistice of Malaioe. These reasons, briefly stated, are that two duchies are under the yoke of an insurrectional party; that the safety of the inhabitants is compromised, the resources of the country wasted, and the Danish population without proteetiM: mid ihnt iho prolongation of the iiimietice would cause the prolongation of the anarchical state of things. The Danish government, however, expresses an earnest wish tor the ehrly opening of negotiations for pence, and lntiriiutes that the termination of the armistice will facilitate such negotiations Denmark is, however, preparing for war?so is 1 Germany. A letter from Berlin, ot the 2d March, says:? If the aspect of the money market at ibis plaoe can le taken asatriterion ot public confidence in the peaceful arrangement of the Scbleswig Holsteln affair, and of tbe Danish "denouncement'' of the armletluo ot being calculated to lead to hostllitiea. then there Is reason for believing that tbe hopee expressed in the Danish note, and echoed by the Prussian ministers, will be realised Krr the lajt two days the Prussian securities, which receded a trifle on Tue day, have remained Dim. and thin morning have recovered their prevlout quotations. It Is difficult to comprehend tbe motives for this confidence. unless it be supposed that the msdia'ing powers will come forward and put an eDd to further discusslon. by determining the points at Issue between j S'clilesnig-H> lstein and Denmark, as the London conference determined the questp n at iseaa between Belgium and Holland, in regard to Luxemburg In the meantime it i? said that Prussia.

ENTRANCE OK THE RUSS1AN8 INTO TRANSYLVANIA, TO HELP THE ASSYRIANS, WHO WERE GETTING BEATEN BY THE HUNGARIANS. The following is a concise account, under date of Vu nna, Feb. 21:? No alight commotion waa created yesterday, by the antral eta courier Ircm Transylvania, reporting the total defeat of Bern's army, and the ocoapation of Cronstadt and Ilrrmanustadt by Russian troops A supplemrntaiy sheet to the evening edition ef the Wiener 7.titui>n contains the Intelligence, from which we gather the followiag particulars:- Slnoa the bloody and decisive battle near Hermannstadt. fought Jaouury 21. when Kield Marshal Lieutenant Pucbner had fearful odd* against him. the memy bad suooeeded in cutting oil our eonimunioatlons with Carlsburg and the Bana'lan country, the garrison force of the town being insufeient to prevent this disss'er.

Thus deprived of th* means of sob sletenae. all provisions having been seized, and every species of booty removed to Klaueenburg by the enemy, vr uau uoiumg lor it oat to listen to iDe complaints and entreaties for help that eame pouring to from all aidee especially item th* two capitals of the Saxon cokey Cronstadt and Herman nstadt.
