IVilmtr s .VtU't letter, May 4, Tbralrltali. Performances of ancient music, selected pieces from the works of Haydn. Bethooven and l imnifl, are taking place under the direction of the Arch Bishop of York, at Hanover Square Booms. Con ducter Sir Henry Bishop; Leader, W. Loder. Ma d.nne Caradori Allen and Herr Standigl were among the |ierformers. Cerito and her husband, St. Leon, had a^ain a|>-1 peared at Her Majesty's Theatre, and the little troup | ot Ken noises had elicited immense applause, narti cularlv in their performance of some new combina tion. " There is a large framework, representing a mirror and a part of the children figure in front ot it whilst a corresponding i>arty behind a transparent medium mimic their evolutions. The effect of this is extraordinary, for the precision with which the imitations are realized are so i>erfect as to suggest doubt whether it is suggestion at all. That old New York favorite, Gabriel ltavel, is performing in London with great applause. \lis3 Cuslunan was performing at the Princess Theatre supported by Air. Wallack. A new play, from the pen of James Kenney, en titled "Infatuation," has been produced at the I on e-ess' Theatre with considerable success. The scene is laid in France, in the time of Napoleon.* The two principal characters of the drama, the Lhike and I luchess de Bracciano, were admirably sustained by Miss Cushman and Mr. James Wallack. Of Miss Cuslunan we cannot speak in terms too high; she is rapidly rising in that favor with the English public which her telents as an actress, wherever she may be, cannot fail to command. Previously to the in troduction of this piece, she had been playing seve ral popular characlers to welj tilled houses, ller de lineation of the character of Mrs. llaller, in "The Stranger," is as attractive as when first produced. Sheridan Knowles's play of "The Hunchback" has been performed, introducing us to this excellent ac tress in the character of Julia. Her performance was marked throughout with much taste and judg ment, adding fresh laurels, were Uiat possible, to her already acquired fame. At the Lyceum Theatre, under Keeley, the man agement is becoming daily more popular. A new piece, under the title of "Our New Governess,' claims particular merit. At the Havmarket,Douglass Jerrold's play, "Time . Works Wonders," is drawing capital houses. Web-1 ster will clear ?3000 by it; one-tenth of this sum, it | is said, he paid Jerrold for the play. Mario, at the Opera House, broke down twice on Saturday last, and has not sung since, though he was udvertised last night in "II Puritant." When Ma-1 rio sings with Castellan, the new M^rmio-a be-, witching creature with a splendid organ?la btUe | Grisi is regularly behind the scenes, watching Ma- [ ?Tio's movements like a turtle dove. The crowds at the oi>eracach night perfectly astound one. Mrs. Salmon, the celebrated vocalist, is suffering | from extremes! poverty. Fashions for May. The great novelty of the season for silk dresses aro those in Pyramidal and transversal stripes, frequently shaded on each side the stri|>e till the colour Mends with that of the ground; there is also a new s4yle of check, of a different texture where the check is formed. Bareges of new designs, taffetas foulards de Chine in wide checks like ribbon, moire, bab.orines, die., are all now in de mand. Dark colurs prevail in all new materials, and those of silk are as yet irtost fashionable. The forms do not vary. The demi puritainc and very high bodies, but open en co^ur, showing the chemisette, or guimpe, are the prevailing styles; some are with revert or rolling collars, gimp, fringe, and lace from the usual trimmings. The newest trimming is with fringed ribbons a la Ninon, placed apart, rising half way up the skirt in gradual shades. Black mantelets will still be won, trimmed with a double row of lace; they are rounded behind and reach very low, with scarf ends in front; some also are made ol laco or imitation, and trimmed with fringed ribbon. Scarfs of embroidered muslin are finish ?il with lace, and the mantelets dovariere have broad ft ills of muslin festoons. Scarfs of the Arab or Algerino style are also fashionable, with wide stripes of different colors; they are usually of very thick soft silk. Collars are worn quite high to the throat with plain guimpe if the dress'is high, but embroidered guimpe for a low dress; the embroidery on collars is very delicate; T>oint? d'armesand plemetis intermixed and trimmed with ace. Canne/.ous will be much worn this spring; thoy ore generuily pointed behind with two or three rows of I work. For pailles de riz; leghorns, and all fancy bonnets ol gau/.c or crape, beautiful flowers aro used; but for the inside coques of ribbon are preferred, sometimes delicate foliage is used. Veils and voilettcs appear in dispensable, varying according to the degree of elegance required. The principal novelty are the gaure lisse or crape bonnets, in three shades of the same colour; open straws ore lined with pink or paille cra|>e, silk, or ribbon, and ornamented with flowers, or fruit, intermixed with foliage; the forms arc rather wore spread from the cheeks. Ribbons of several shades of the same colour uie much worn on caps a? well as bonnets. Ireland. Repeal Association?At the meeting of this as sociation on Monday, the 21st ult., Mr. O'Connell presented the aecond re|?ort oi the committee on the re|K>rt of the Land Commissioners. Subsequently, he proceeded to comment on the siieeches ot Minis ters during the great debate on the Maynooth Col lege bill. Of Mr. Goulburn'a speech he thought lit tle. That gentleman had taken out the value of the endowment in abuse of the clergy; but the tone ol (lie other Ministers was different. For the lirst time in his life lie had an opportunity of praising Sir Jas. < traham, and he did so most cordially, on account of the manliness by which his speech was character ized. There was nothing more foolish than the cry of inconsistency. When a man was in the wrong, n change in his conduct merely amounted to a de duration that he was wiser to-day than he was yes terday. Who should presume to say that because a man was once wrong, he was never to emerge from the precincts of errorl No; he held out both his hands to Sir James Graham with forgiveness for die i>ast, and he should be placed on a pedestal having inscribed on its base, "Justice to Ireland." He bad expressed his sorrow for having used the expres sion that confession hud reached its limits; and no man was either a Christian or a gentleman who did not forgive after the symptoms of rc|>entance mani fested by him. Sir James Graham said that the May nooth bill was but the precursor of future concessions to Ireland. They themselves had a Precursor So ciety before they formed the Reiieal Association, and he was glad that the honorable baronet had ar rived at the stage of precursorship; all they wanted further from him now was his subscription. What did he tell the Recorder Shaw? Why, this?that Ireland had been governed too l?ng tor the pur|>o wb of I'rotestant ascendancy, and that they were to have no more of that. Now, for that declaration he thanked linn heartily ; for the greatest evil in Ireland had been Protestant ascendancy ; and, in his opinion, it would lie as great an evil to have a Catholic ascendancy. There should be no ascen dancy, then ; and hurrah for Sir James Graham, who was to assist them ngamst it. He was pleased with Sir James < iraham's sjieecli?it was a manly fqieech, a repentant speech ; and he thought they snould send him absolution from Conciliation Hull. (Cheers and laughter.) The next speech he would glance at was that of Sir Robert Peel ; and he con fessed he felt tor linn. He was in nil exceedingly awkward predicament; and idthough there were some slips in his speech, he forgave them on that iceount. When he talked of them as being " con victed," he must have forgotten the termination of the prosecution. Convicted! Why. angels out ol heaven might l>e convicted by a packed Dublinjury. Convicted ! Were they not turned out of orison by the order of the House of Lords ! Sir Robert said that the agitation could not be put down by force.? They knew that well ; they knew that force could not he used against men who instead of fighting were talking, and striving by |ieaceable and consti tutional means to carry into effect the will of the people of Ireland. He told Sir Robert Peel that he might now take every soldier out of it; ana if he wanted a volunteer corns, the Hepealers would form one for him. At all events, after the declaration of the Prime Minister, the poor soldiers ought not to be cooped up in their barracks; and the eye-let holes, or, as the soldiers called them, " coward ' holes, by which the barracks had been surrounded, ought to be removed; for if there were not a single soldier in the country, the repealers would take nothing by force. But ?ir Robert said that they were to be put clown by kindliness, concili ation and generosity. He was obliged to htm for trying it, for certainly ihey had been long enough badly treated in consequence of the bigotry and fa naticism of the Hnglish people. After more in this strain, Mr. O'l onnell observed that the re|ieal cause never stood so high as at present. By the confession of their opponents, they were irresistible if they Kepi within flic law. From that spot, in the name o! the sacred cause of repeal, he commanded the ueojie of Ireland fo abstain from any breach of the taw. lie continued at some length to inculcate the l?irainount necessity of obedience to the constituted authorities. Mr. O'Conxkm. announced the amount of rent to b- C i'h'i Io*. (id.; and expressed a hope that Peel would double it before next meeting. In a letter accepting the invitation to a banquet and triumphal entry at Cork, Mr. O'Connell says:? "The Ministers of the Crown, finding it to be total-: !v useless to crush the repeal spiru by force, or to j > rmguishit by leg*l form, have adopted another and | u less bliMiieahle course. They chow u determina tion to conciliate public opinion by minor acts otjiw Uce and benevolence. The Maynooth ?ndowment bill is h measure of this description, entirely devoid ot any obnoxious provisions, and brought forward hi a statesmanlike conciliation. A good measure in itselt, and entitled t?> gratitude, but iinmeosurably >hort ol the ubstantial justice due from England, ano which can never be obtained save by tlie resto ration of our domestic legislation. Whilst the 1 l,r?oded in sorrow and irritation, but in silent acquiescence, over the grievances which afflicted their country, no relief was afforded, no concilia tion suggested by the government. On the contrary, even ?n our eariler movements we were emphatical lyto!d that concession?that is to say, justice to Ire land had long attained its limits. That assertion is now emphatically retracted, and the loud cry of m i ?r -a8 into interior cabi net of the Ministry, and (force and fraud having .ft"1 U8ei s) 18 endeavored to be quelled by acts of benevolence conferred in a conciliatory man r. Let us persevere. We have every incitement s 2^vS7Cre" r concession made by England hp b,VL1 'Ti00 L r former injustice. It increases ? .i f ol the repealers, and diminishes the peal " ln Cr? se w'h? urt' opposed to re France. On the 21st ultimo began a discussion in the v naniber of Deputies on a. motion by M. Muret de lSord, for the conversion of the five per cents; but it Pf^jented little interest for the foreigner. 1 he /'t este says that Captain Page has been des patched to Oceania with fresh instructions to Ad miral Aainelin; and adds?"We arc assured that Captain Page's mission refers to the approaching abandonment of our |H)8sessions in Oceania. It is so serious a step that we had better await ampler in formation on the subject." The Chamber of l>eputies rejected, on the 26th uIt. by a considerable majority, the projKJsition of M=iDozon und Taillandier, for the suppression On the same day, M. Cremieux presented to the Chamber various |)etitions forwarded by the inhabi ,i'Co,r!1ca, denwnduig the abrogation of the law of the 11th of April, 1832, which maintained the banishment oi the Napoleon family, pronounccd in 1816, and condemned the elder branch of the Bour ? n dynasty to eternal exile. The Chamber, on be ing consulted, referred those petitions to the Presi de? ?t the Council and the Minister of the Interior. I he Minister of Murine had forwarded orders to the commander of the French naval station at Bour bon to send one of the vessels under his command to Bussora, to take on board the sculptured monu ments lately discovered at Nineveh by Messrs. Botta anil r luiidin. those remains had been removed on raits as far as Bagdad, and thence to Bussora. A hail mthe palace of the Louvre is now fitting up for their reception. The serious illness of M. Guizot, whose life was said at one time to be in peril, has all'orded food for the quidnuncs; and the anxiety of Louis 1 hihppe about the safety of his able und accom plished minister, shows the danger to which he has been exjiosed. To enable him to recruit his health arongr ap|iears in the Mnniteur, and if ever Mi nister required a respite from the fatigue of office, badgered and worried on nil sides as lie has been that Minister is (iiiizot. lie is about to seek re pose by temporary retirement to his villa at Pa?sv It appears that the accounts of his illness have been somewhat exaggerated; but enough remains to show that the energies of one of the great spirits of the age have been overtaxed, and that the con sequences will be, in all probability, a partial, if not a complete reconstruction of his Cabinet. With the prospect before him, his official retirement at the present time temporary though it be?will not prove very injurious to his fame. Count Duchatel is Guizot s successor. Thiers is said t? be soliciting favor at Court, and the absence of that hostility to England, which has been a primary stockf in trade of the French jour nals lately,has almost disappeared?to the great com fort of the expectant Minister, who appears to have equal facility in raising a storm, and in calming it with his wand. b [From Paris Presse.] We learn from a certain source that the British squadron recently fitted out at Portsmouth, und placed under the orders of Adml. Seymour, is intended to act in the 1 acific Ocean. The principal object of this expedition is to be ready in case of a rupture be tween Great Britain and the United States, to occu py, militarily, the ports and important positions of the Uregon, and to capture the numerous American merchantmen and whalers. We are far from de siring a war, but it becomes us to examine carefully the various chances which either party has of suc cess, although we would almost dare to affirm that Oreat Britain will yield, as she has always done, in presence of the menacing attitude of her rival, jjut it is an historical fact that every time Great Britain has yielded to America, some advantage has ac crued to France. The treaty of 1783, by which the Cabinet of St. James recognized the independence oI the L nited States, caused us to recover possession of bengal, delivered us from an English Commis sioner residmg at Dunkirk, and restored to Spain, our ally, die Hondas and Port Mahon, which Great iintain retained nearly a century. We trust that the example of the treaty of Washington in 1842 will equally bear its fruits. Spain. Our accounts from Madrid of the 21st nit., state that the Chamber of Deputies resumed on that day i the discussion on the amendment of M. Liorente who had proposed a reduction in the supplies re quired tor the maintenance of the carabineros or customs othcers. After a desultory debate the amendment was put to the vote and rejected Av 64 against 7. All the advices received from the pro vinces were most satisfactory. Switzerland. The New Zurich Gazette announces that a treaty was concluded at |Lucerne on the 23d ultimo be tween the Commissioners of the Government of Lu cerne and those of the cantons of Berne, Soleure, Basle Cainpagne, and Argau, relative to the setting at liberty the prisoners.

The Constitutwnntl says that M. Guizot has re sen ed tor his considenition during his absence three namely, the High, of K?chTe Tei? and the marriage of the Queen of Spain. The same journal circulates an absurb rumor of supposed in trigues in which Marshal Soult and M. Duchatel are said to be engaged against M. Guizot. Russia. The Jmutuil des Dehati, of Saturday last, states hat the api>ointment of Count Woronzoff to the of fice of commander-in-chief of the army of the pro vice of Caucasus, who is invested with extraordinary Powers, has restored to the army part of the energy which it had entirely lost. The Russian govern ment appears to rely as much on the administrative "?,n 'h? m.lIu?.7 services of the Count.

A letter from Constantinople, April 2, in the Auet burg Gazette. has the following:?"Osmer l'ucha, the hero of lite campaign last year against the Alba nians, has demanded his rectJ.1, which the govern ment hasted to grant him. After his departure the Arnauts assembled to the number of 1,000, and sud denly attacked and pillaged the convent of St. Ar setne. They then attacked another convent, nnd as sassinated three monks. The negotiations lor peace between Turkey und Persia have not yet arrived at any result. Mirza Ishafer and Enverri ElFendi, the two pleniiK)tentiaries, endeavor by every artifice to gain the advantage one over the other, but without effect." Syria The Smyrna journals of the 9th ult., contain ac counts from lieyrout of the 3rd. Syria was then comparatively calm, and it was expected that the concessions made to the Rlaronites by the Porte would have the eflect of pacifying Mount Lebanon. The news of the dismissal of lCssad Pasha from the government of Beyrout, had caused much sensation and regret in that town. Advices from Damascus of the 26th ult., stated that the Mecca caravan had been this year more numerous than ever, and that no less than 3,000 Persians accompanied it. Chin*. The Wong Kong Register of the 4th of February says?accounts from Shanghai are to the 22d ult. What trade was carried on was chielly bv barter for raw silk and teas, principally green. It was be lieved that during last year, transactions to the ex tent of neerlv one million sterling, (including ex ports) had taken place. India A mail has been received from Calcutta, by the overland route, to the 8th March. It brings scarcely any intelligence. Sir Charles Napier's expedition against the robber tribes in his neighborhood, ap pears to be at an end. The leader, who stood out in his contumacy, Bejar Khan, had " come in, on the understanding that hiB life was to be sijared, and that he was to have some land beyond the Indus. The Punjaub continued in its unsettled state; and all was speculation as to the future movements ol the British troops concentrated on its frontier. ft is, however," says the Bengal Hurkaru, ' hardly likely that we shall willingly rush into a war at the beginning of the hot season; and the general impres sion seems to be, that the Sutlej frontier is being strengthened on the chance of the Sikhs crossing the river, and that in the next cold season we shall ' pluck the pear.'" , "The Governor General," continues the same journal, " yet remains at the Presidency, and still lends the full light of his countenance to the cause ot education and internal improvement. He has since our last presided at two scholastic anniversaries, those of the Hooghly College and the Calcutta Ma drissa or Mahomedan College. On each occasion he made a speech strongly indicative of a desire lor the amelioration of the country and the moral and intellectual advancement of the people. But it is evident that these pacific employments .do not en gross his attention or divert nis mind from the pecu liar external relations of the country at the present crisis ; and nobody would be taken by surprise were the next Calcutta Gazette to contain a proclamation of war with the Puniaub, or were the Governor Ge neral next to be heard of on his way to l1 erozepore. The papers are full of comments on the arrest of Colonel Wallace, for an excess of orders in descend ing the Elephant Rock in pursuit of the rebels ot Sawunt Warree. His object was to take the village of Soevapore. He conveyed HOO infantry, with mor tars, ordnance, spare ammunition, commissariat sup plies, &c., down a steep 110 feet high. After the de scent of that precipice, says the United Service Gem sette, " the troops and artillery had to i?ss along the ridge about 200 yards in length, und only wide enough for one man at a time; on the right of which was a perpendicular scarp of about 150 feet, on the left a slope of some sixty degrees, not above twenty feet in width, with a perjiendicular fall of several feet on the outside. At the end of the first ridge waa a declivity of at least forty feet, leading to a second ridge of about 300 yards in length, and but little wider than the first, terminating in a third tall ot about twenty feet, from which a pathway, running over undulating ground covered with a thick jungle, led to the village of Seevapore, which is about two miles distant from the Elephant Rock, and surround ed with jungles on all sides." Colonel Wallace had received orders from General Delamotte not to ad vance, but he received the orders after the advance had been partially commenced, when retreat was impossible, except at a frightful sacrifice; and suc cess is regarded as iustifying^the daring manmu vre. The rock is now called Wallace Droog. By the last mail intelligence reached this country of a draft act augmenting the duties on goods im ported into British India. The Calcutta Chamber of Commerce met to represent the injurious ettects which the proposed measure wc 'Id have upon com merce, witn respect both to the local government and to the manufacturing bod;es| at home. It has since been ascertained, " uppn good authority, that there is no intention of any immediate change, but that the notice was put forth by way ot obtaining the opinion of those interested. Markets. London Money Market, May 3, P. M.?Since our last the English Securities have been flat and heavy; Consols have declined one-half per cent., and business to a limit ed amount only has been transacted. The agitation of the country on the Maynooth grant has, in the minds of some, affected the stability of Sir Robert rell s ministry, and though the question was carried on the second read ing by a large majority, it is evident that the opposiUon in the country is increasing. The hostile language upon the Oregon question has also, with other more trifling causes, given encouragement to the speculators for a fall to operate on the market. Some large sales have been made by private parties, and though the government bro ker has continued a buyer, hi* operations being chiefly confined to South Sea Annuities, has done little to sus The rage for Railway speculations and traffic in shares, particularly in new companies, has been somewhat checked by the adverse decisions of Parliament for non compliance with the standing orders; which has post poned many of them for another session, at least, perhaps some of them indefinitely ; but still the firmness in the prices of the established lines had not been proportiona bly affected. . , , , The transactions in Foreign Stock have been >er> limited ; in fact It is evident that they have for the pre sent lost the charm they once possessed. Mexican Stock has risen nearly one per cent upon the prospect that Texas will herself object to annexation, and still re main independent without a struggle. The nows from the United States is at present looked to with mtanse i anxiety, every arrival causing a change in prices. Span ish has been hardly operated in, and the general busi ness has been so smnll that prices have undergone no change worth mentioning. i The cloving prices to-day for Consols for Money to H, and for the Account 98*. to X ; Exchequer Bills 47?. to J9s.

In American Securities there is scarcely a transaction to report since our last publication. In our market there is no American Stock offering; and if there were, pur chasers could not be found to invest their capital. Until the return of the steam-ship Caledonia, it is probable that the market will remain in the same state. Liverpool Cottoh Market?For the Week ending .Ipril 34.?American short-stapled cotton is Jd perlb. higher this week, and wo close with a strong market. This altered tone from the previous dullness has been brought about mainly by the remark of the Prime Minis ter, about the " little cloud in the Wost," so anxiously do the public wait upon the words dropping from high au thority, and of such Importance is the most remote possi bility considered of a misunderstanding between this country and the United States. Already, money to a con siderable amount is being transferred from the share to tho cotton market. It is very true that, independent or other disturbing causes, the low scale of our currency makes an investment in tho article not a very dangerous experiment. In this way, some of tho successful share speculators are making what they esteem " a good hedge," and arc likely to let their investments lie for a time, unless their object should be realised more prompt ly than it is perhaps reasonable to expect. Tending in the same direction, wo leara that the accounts from India are less bad than before, and those from Manchester arc better. Altogether, we have had a great stir during the last few days. On Wednesday 30,000 bags were sold; yosterday 1ft,0(H); and to-day again it is large?mnking a total for the week of 71,4.?0 bags. Kvenr description is looking up, but the advance on no kind is so marked as in the qualities first named. 39,0?<i American and 100 Su rat have been taken on speculation, and 000 Amer.can, 300 Poinams, 130 Surat. and 30 Madras, for export. For Week mding May ?.?The prices of < otton have fluctuated ? little during the week, but we terminate with our scale of quotations as before. Up to Wednes day morning wc were quiet, and rather lost ground, but in the course of the day a ??e?j>ing demand showed it self, l/'.OOO bugs changed h?i>!? a Urge |>ortion, perhaps one-half, being on s| filialm> an ! we gained in prices what wc had previously l??t an Monday and Tuesday. Since that day me have gom' on with a moderate de mand, steadily supporting our pie? ious rates. The cause of the movement oa W ediicxlay is not easily accountcd for. We are not aware ol au> additional inducement lo bring in the i|ieculntor beyond that still existing, name ly, the inoderutc scale of our currency : perhaps some part of the speculation was founded upon that general princi ple of low prices, and intended to lie over waiting event'. This morning wc have later advices from the United States, from which we learn that receipts at the ports, as compared with the same time in 1?13, were only aboul .1000 bales less thanwere received in that great crop vear ?J8,ft00 American, .'<00 Pernain, and 700 Surat. have been taken on speculation, and 000 American and "JftO Surat fo export. The total sales of the week amount to 61,'?n Rrporl for May 8.?We have had a more quiet day than usual, though Saturday is almost a hall-holliday with mercantile firms ; the sales havo been 3000 bags ; there is no change in prices, but buyers havo a larger choice of samples than before. Liverpool Markets, May 3.?Ashes?The demaad is very limited, and nothing of any importance to report. Corn We have had a fair supply of British Wheat and Klour, but only moderate of Oats and Oatmeal, abroad there are several arrivals of Barley, Oats Beam and Indian Com.

A rumor was prevalent last evcuing at the several hotels that the Hon.'Edward Everett was a passenger in the " Britannia." Tho origin of tho report may have been confounded with the arrival, yesterday, at the Astor, of his Excellency A.,J. Everett,the United States Minister to China, who, with his family, has arrived in the city, preparatory to his Excclloncy's embarkation for his mission in the U. 8. frigate Columbus. Great Central Koute from Montgomery, Ai.a., to CuARiJtSTOfi, 8. C.?Since the running of our Im presses we pcrcoive that the gentlemen conducting this line have determined to fullow tho example we set and travel over their line of roads as fast as tliey ought to.? From a Icttor we have perused in the Mobile Register, signed by several of the first merchants of Mobile, we learn that, by the " Central Koute," tlio distanco from Montgomery to Charleston, is accomplished in from four to six hours less time than it is ovor what is called the "Express Mail Itoute." From Kxpcrionce wo can attest to one fact, and that is, that the traveller experiences much more comfort and ease on this route than on any other. Over the "Express Mail Koute," 170 miles of the distance has to be passed over in stage-coaches, while but 140 miles of staging occurs on the " Central Route." We learn that it is t'le intcntien of the Savannah and Macon Hail Itoad Company, to extend their line from Macon westward to Columbus, thereby roducing the stage travel to 4ft miles. With such intentions as these, they deserve all countenance from the citizens of New Orleans and Mebile.?.V. O. Crrtctnl C'iVy, May 10. Ki n?j oi' the Mosutmt ?

M. Agent and Consul General in Muaquito.?Btiite, Hon., Oherver, Jlpril 19, NEW YORK HERALD. Hew York, Taeadajr, May '40, 1846. The New* from Europe. At last we have the news. The Britannia steamer arrived at Bofetcn yesterday morning at 5 o'clock, and the news was received here by the Long Island Railroad about 6 o'clock last evening. We published an Extra in half an hour thereafter. The news by this arrival is not very interesting? the most important being a slight rise in die price of cotton?good. The Maynooth bill is passing through its usual stages in the House of Commons. It creates great religious cxcitement, but it does not 9eem probable that the Lords will dare to defeat it. The two old parties?whigs and conservatives?are wholly divi ded and(disorganized, on this revival of a new Catho lic question. Sir Robert Peel is obstinate. Little additional has been said of the United States, Texas, or Oregon?nothing in Parliament. The English journals give up the Texas question as a "gone coon," and begin to anticipate that Yankee doodledom will soon seek to annex California, and other parts of Mexico. The English are just be ginning to see clcarer than usual. ' In Ireland, Daniel O'Connell is so busy and so delighted, in shoveling in the instalments of tribute to his own pockets, and justice to Ireland, that he has no time to vent more abuse on the United States. We e.\|>ect an explosion by next steamer. Miss Cushman is still making a great sensation in London. We see nothing further of Forrest, Hack ett, or Dan Marble, but suppose they are alive. Trade is good?times are prosperous?the Queen is holding drawing-rooms?and all nature is full of life and vigor. One thing we must not forget?the great iron steamer comes out to New York next month?so look out. The Mission to England. J This question is creating a great deal of excite ment throughout the country, and in all quarters, north, south and west. The point argued seems to t be, whether Mr. Van Buren or Mr. Calhoun is the | fitter man to go to England on this Bpecial mission. This question appears to divide the democratic jour nals in pretty much the same shape and degree as the nomination of a Presidential candidate did be fore the meeting of the Baltimore Convention. J From some of the southern journals we perceive I that the President, after the rejection of the mission I by Mr. Elmore and Mr. Pickens, offered it to Gene- 1 ral James Hamilton, by whom also it was refused. A great deal will grow out of this discussion be fore it be terminated by the settlement of the inte resting question which has originated it. It is the first distinct question in which the force of the two great sections of the democratic party has been call ed forth. United States Navy.-The list oi the Neapoli tan navy which we published the othfcr day, and which we obtained from the officers of the Sicilian frigate at present in our harbor, has attracted agreat deal of attention. It has been compared with the list of the United States navy given in this journal a i few days previously, and many have very naturally expressed their surprise on finding that the King of the Two Sicilies?so diminutive a monarch amcngst the great potentates of the earth-has actually a navy which is almost half as powerful as that of the United States of America! In steam vessels the Neapolitan navy is far superior to that of this country. The first thing the President should do is to look at the state of our navy, before entering on any ne gotiations. We can negotiate successfully only with arms in our hands. Congress ought to be called to gether, and the navy put in an effective position. The truth cannot be disguised that we are at present in a mostjmiserable and helpless condition, so far as respects the means of defence provided by Govern ment. In case of emergency we would have to de pend entirely on the voluntaiy efforts of the great cities and particular localities. Health of the City.?We again draw the atten tion of the new Common Council to the state of the streets. The filthy and horrid condition in which they are at present is really beyond description. The mud at the crossings is ankle deep, and garbage of every kind lays in all directions?dead dogs pigs, ashes, and dirt, mixed up in one heterogeneous mass; and after the rainy weather, that has prevail ed the last day or two, the first hot day will cause it to send up the most noxious exhalations, and per haps lead to some epidemic. We have already the ?mall pox raging in our midst; and surely some means ought to be taken to prevent the appearance of any fresh disease, even if that is not to be check ed. The present Common Council came in under a perfect phrensy of reform, but certainly they have as yet been as supine and listless as their predecessors nay, more so, for they at least did occasionally some' gosd towards cleaning the streets, but this party treats that subject with apparent perfect indifference. Theatricals. Tiie Park.?Anderson commenced his farewell engagement last night in "Macbeth." The house, although not so much crowded as on many of the' nights of his last engagement, was well filled with a very recpectable audience, many of whom were la dies. Mr. Anderson's impersonation of Macbeth, j although it falls short of that presented by some of the great tragedians whose names will ever be as sociated with that immortal creation of Shakspeare is still highly respectable?in not a few iwrticulars' indeed, more than respectable?evincing a very just conception, carried out with eminent artistical pow | er. The well knswn soliloquy in the first act was i spoken with marked ability and effect, and occa J sionally throughout the parformance there were passages in which Mr. Anderson evinced a degree of talent and genius greater than we had seen in any of his previous performances. We have not space, however, iust now, to go into a formal critique. Miss Ellis is a lady of great and versatile talent, but she is not altogether capable of sustaining the part of Lady Macbeth. Mr. Dyott's " Macduff" was I very creditable, as that gentleman's performances 1 generally are. The tragedy, altogether, was re ceived with great approbation. To-night Mr. Anderson plays the "Elder Brother " one 01 those ,?rts which he has made his own and in which we do not believe he has any rival ' Castle Camden.?A large and fashionable an dience, numbering we should judge, some fifteen hundred, were assembled in this deligh tful rerun if 4!?nV?

It will con tain all the most interesting statistics of this city ano State, 9uch as may be u*eful to men of business, merchants, lawyers and others^ Episcopal, Election in Pennsylvania.?We give in this day's paper a very accurate and compli mentary biographical sketch ot Dr. Tyng, the pnn ci|?al candidate for the Episcopate of Pennsylvania, in order thaf the Convention which meets this eve ning in Philadelphia may be uble to grope its way through the difficulties with which it is surrounded. We are decidedly in favor of Dr. Tyng's election to the Bishopric of Pennsylvania, being chiefly moved to that friendly disposition by the pious desire and purj>o8e of returning good for evil. The Doctor has preached sermons against us, and cut us up in every way, but on looking into the sacred volume which has been given as a light to the feet and a lamp to the path of Dr. Tyng and ourselves and all other misera ble sinners, we find it written that we are to return good for evil, to bless them that curse us, and to pray for them that despitefully use us. We mean to practice in this sublime precept, and therefore we are decidedly in favor of the elevation of the Doctor to the Episcopate, as! he desires and wishes it. We thus mean to show him that in one whom he has es teemed little better than a heathen man and a publi can, the Christian virtues and graces can bud forth as sweetly and luxuriantly, nay far more sweedy and luxuriantly than in those that make great pretensions to piety and the possession of the Holy Spirit?that in fact we can exhibit more practical Christianity than a Bishop or one who expects to be a Bishop. This election in Pennsylvania becomes invested with a great degree of interest on account of the pe culiar condition of the Episcopal Church at this mo ment with resect to the Puseyite controversy. The result of this election will have a very important bearing on the Puseyite movement. There will al so be a great controversy in the Bishopric of New York in a short time, and we perceive that one of the members of the church militant?Colonel Webb, of pious memory, and who discharges the solemn duties of episcopal bull-dog on the tower of David? has been making a most fortunate and timeous dis covery of an attempt to introduce the leaven of Pope ry into the Protestant manufactory of the bread of life. It appears that Dr. Seabury, in commenting on Dr. Wainwright's edition of the Book of Common Prayer, takes occasion to compliment the reverend writer of that pious work, for "his fearless testimony to the ancient custom of praying for the dead." The pious bull-dog smells at a rat instantly, and gives the alarm. Accordingly out comes Dr. Wainwright with a sharp rebuke of his reverend brother's "mis representation," stoutly asserting that he abhors and abominates the Popish custom of praying for the dead ; whereupon the gallant Colonel, of the church militant, goes off in a perfect blaze of holy satisfaction, delight, indignation and horror. What is particularly funny in Col. Webb's holy rhapsody is the high esteem which he professes for Bishop Hughes?he is "amiable, meek and christian," and quite right in praying for the dead, but Dr. Seabury is any thing but a Christian, and for his "itome-ward tendencies merits crucifix ion." Well,we mean,with the help of Col. Webb, to keep the Episcopal church in a state of cohesion, if pos sible. The Methodists, the Baptists, the Pres byterians, have each split into two large pieces; but thus far, our extreme vigilance? always with the help of Webb?has preserved the Episcopal church from division. We very much ffear, ^however, that this work of mei cy and labor of love will be less successful in future. In these days of change, innovation, Fourierism> Socialism, State Conventionism?all sorts of radical and upheaving ideas?we doubt whether we cant keep the Episcopal church right end up much longer. Qij- We had prepared some remarks on the sub ject of the communication of the jury in the case of Jones to his Hon. Judge Edmonds and^associates, in relation to the outrageous neglect of the watchmen at the corner of Prince and Wooster streets, to which we took occasion to refer at the conclusion of th? trial of the unfortunate 'prisoner, but press of fo reign matter excludes them. We refer, however, to the communication of the jury, who tried the case* which will be found under its proper head in the Court of Oyer and Terminer, and will, wc trust, have the desired effect.

Interesting Intelligence.?Sr. Helena, March 19, 1H45.?On Wednesday last, the Charles Henry, of N. London, Samuel Jeffries, master, arrived at this port, having on board four men who had been cast away oil the Coast of New Holland. On the 'J9th of June last, the Cervantes, of N. London, Cipt. Gibson, was lost in Julian Bay, on the west coatt of New Holland: the crew lost every thing but whet they stood in, there be ing no inhabitants within 200 miles of the place where they were wrecked. After suffering incredible hard ships, Captain Gibson with fifteen of his men, arrived at Geography Bay on the 3Pth July, having travelled up wards of 'J00 miles through a sandy desert, one man having died for want of food and water. Here they found Cantain Jeffries whaling with his ship, who imme diately administered to their wants and comforts in the most charitable manner On the 6th of August last, the Halcyon, of N. London, Captain Eailey, then laying in Geography Bay, petted both her chains and was Tost, leaving her crew entirely destitute of the common ne cessaries of life. Captain Jeffries immediately told the crew of the unfortunate vessels notte despond, but he of good cheer, that although they amounted to forty in num ber, he would not leave a man behind?that he would abandon his voyage, his own pecuniary interests, as well as those of his owners, to savo life : and although whales were plenty, and ho might have filled his vessel, he gave up the voyage, and forthwith commenced preparations to make the shipwrecked mariners comfortable. His first step was to send bis carpenter on shore and erect a tem porary hut, that they might have somo other shelter be' side the canopy of heaven, at the same time providing them with an ample supply of provisions, the best the ship afforded. This having been accomplished, he next proceeded to put his ship in readiness to receive so largo a number of passengers, fitting up accommodations lor tliom.iic. The large supply of water which it was ne cessity to take to meet the wnnts of so many, precluded all possibility of taking any more oil. His arrangements being all completed, Captain Jetfiics received the men on board, and sailed for the Isle of Krance, where he ar rived i:i safety, leaving the men, with the exception of the four above alluded to. Ho then applied to the Amcri Can commercial agent, J. Giiltith, resident tiieie, but could obtain no satislactlon whatever, nor would he take anv charge of the poor sufferers, but shipped them off on froard Kngllsh vessels, instead of providing for them until an opportunity occurred to send them to tho land of their nutn ity. Such conduct towards American citizens in a foreign land, from him who should be their country's representative, is deserving the strongest cen sure, particularly when their fiituation is considered.
