FURTHER EXTRACTS From oar Foreign Exchanges. Commercial Relations of England and Ami ca.?Mr. McGregor has recently published a rep on the commercial tariffs and regulations of United States, which contains a mass of statistil and commercial information of the first importer to our transatlantic readers. As the report has ol just made its appearance, we are only enabledf*J glance at its coatents in our present number. I< most voluminous, containing upwards of 1400 pap of foolscap folio, and is the production of a gent, man who brings to his task the most ardent zeall the cause of free trade, and an experience and r lightened judgment in commercial statistics, whif have secured the approbation of Sir Robert Pee government. Mr. McGregor holds a high positi< in the Hoard of Trade, and the contents of the pt sent volume may be relied on for their accuracy, i they have been compiled from official document The following passage which accounts for England commercial greatness, is striking, not less from 1 style than its truth:? " It would bave bean superfluous to advert to tbe fo mer and recent commercial policy of England, were not that in the United States, and in tbe States of Cont Dental Europe, the example of England, however m ?onnd, it always referred to by the advocates of the fai lacies of legislative protection to national industry, ir genuity and enterprise. We sta e boldly that Englam owes not her prosperity to that specious legislative pro tection which American and other nations extol as saga cious wisdom ; or, aa grasping maratime and commercia monopoly, on the part ot the rnlera and lawgiver* o B itain. W* repeat that whioh we have frequently en deavored to prove, and which happily, although th< progress ef conviction has been slow, is now very gen erally believed in the United Kingdom, and which wil bo at no remote period, as generally entertained, ar acted upon, in the United States, but which foreia statesmen and foreign writers have very seldom adnii ted. We repeat that England baa attained her prosper ty, not by the aid, but in defiance of her illiberal coo marcial system ; that England has owed her wealth, an power, and even bar liberty, to her geographical p"*i tion; to her many commanding harbors ; to her fisheries which originated her naval architecture and her fleet* . to the vest power of production yielJed by bar mines of coal and iron?interiiratified for the coal to isnolt the iron ; to the coal fields generally, of the north, central, and western counties, and of Wales ; to the coal and iron of the Clyde ; to the salt mines ot Cheshire end Gloucestershire, to the copper and tin mines of Cornwall and Wales; to her geological geological forma tion, from bar granite and limestone, to the chalk and sandstone; to the variety, elevations and depressions ot her soils, rising from the rich lowlands ol Kent, Essex, ) Norfolk and Lincolnshire?from the fertile valleys and plains of the south, and of the central counties, up to the Cstures, on the heighths of the South Dowds?on the Us of Devonshire and Somersetshire?and up to the Ceaks of Darby, and to the mountains of Wales and Cum rrland : ?to soil* and paatures, varying from the straths and dales ef Scotland, up to the browa of the Cheviot and Tantland bills, and north to Bredalbane, to th* Grampi ans, and to the Highlands,- to the materials for building, which her atone, lime eDd alate quarries, and her clays, and her woods have yielded; to her oak, end other fo rests which enable berto build ber war fleets, her mer chant ships, her coasting vessels, and ber Ashing boats, until wood, whsn wanted, could have been brought to her ports and ship yards from afar; to tbe vary incon stancy of a climate, not liable to great heet nor to intense cold: end, superadds i to these great natural advantages ?to those political, moral, and inveutive elements, with out which aU other blessings would hav* bean of minor power; that la to say?to civil liberty under the consti tution of England, founded on the Magna Charts, and strengthened and secured by the Petition of Rights, tbe * * "ill of R eh ? ~ Habeas Corpus Aot, th* Bill of R ghts, and the Act of Settlement; to the perseverance *Dd industry of her peo ple; to th* enterprise of b>r manufactures, and the skill ef her artisans; to the Bridgewater canal, and the canals which It originated; te the steam engine, spinning jenny, mule and power loom; to the adventurous spirit of her priocely merchants, and to th* hardy intrepidity of her brave mariner*. To all these physical and moral elements does Great Britain ows her power and prospe rity?bar manufacturing and commercial wealth?her abrUty in tbe maintenance of ber power pay high taxation and high rents:-in despite of monopolies, protective duties, ana dear lood in despite of all these baoea to national prosperity?banes to national progress, which all countries, and none more so than the United Kingdoas and th* United States, would act wiaaly by can calling from their legia ation." Sketch or the Corn Laws ?A short summary of the history of the com laws cannot fail at this moment to prose interesting. The first act for re gulating the rates of doty was 18th George III, c. 48. Previous to the paseiag of that act, the statutes or orders in Conned on the snbject were rather dic tated by circumstances, such as prosperous and de ficient harvests,- than any intelligible and settled principles. Usually, a greater quantity of corn was erown than waa required for our own consumption. When there was a scarcity, the exportation oi all kinds of grain was prohibited, and even bounties offered for importations from abroad. When, on the other hand, there was a glut in the country, bounties were offered for its exportation. From an early period, certainly aa early as the reign of Hen ry VI , the principle ot protection to home-grown corn has been invariably maintained by our Legis lature. In the reign ot James I the importation of loreign wheat waa prohibited when the price in the English market was below 32s. per quarter; and in the reign of Charles II., when the commerce of England became more extended, it "seems a com plete sliding scale was established, the duty on fo reign wheat being 16a. when the price here was 53s. Kr quarter or under ; 8d. when between 53s. and i ; and when above the last price all imports to be allowed free. The same line of policy mav be traced pervading the whola of the succeeding changes in the law until 1773, when they assumed a more constant and regular shape. By the act of 13 Geo. Ill, the duty was 24s. Sd. when wheat was under 50e. per quarter, and when the price was at or above 54s. the duty was 6J These rates seemed to have been fixed with a view of keeping the price of wheat aa nearly as possible at 50s. per quarter.? which, regarding the greater value of money in those days, would probably be about equal to 65s. the quarter at the present time. Shortly after the commencement of the last gTtat war, the pivot waa raised, and when the price waa below 63s. per quar ter. the duty on foreign wheat waa 80 3d. falling to 74d. when the price reached 86s. These duties were advanced soon afterwards, and in 1815, Mr. Robinson succeeded in passing an act absolutely prohibiting the importation ot foreign wheat until the price in our markete had been, for three con secutive months, above 80s. per quarter. Another law was passed in 1823, prohibiting the importation ol foreign wheat when tbe prices were at or under 70*. per quarter, admitting it when between 70s and 80s. at a duty of 12*; when between 80s. and 80s , at a duty ot 5s ; and when above 86s at a duty ot Is. This law, however, never carne into effect, sa it was provided that its operation should be delayed unul wheat rote above 80s per quarter, which did not occur before another alteration took place. Early in 1827, Mr. Canning brought forward a ae ries of resolutions for the (airpoee of forming them into a corn law. He proposed a sliding scale, near ly similar to the one alterwurds earned by the Wel lington Cabinet, and which remained in force until Sir Robert Peel's bill in 1842, which now regulates the admission of foreign corn. A letter from!Rome states, that the Emperor Ni cholas, during vhia stay there, bestowed enormous sums in gratuities. On quitting the Vatican he left ? sum of 12,000 Roman crowns for the domestics. L inee Arueticau ,.....?oiiu American Association, on Thursday, the 10th in stant, it was agreed to present an address to Lord Metealfe, upon the occasion of his lordship's retire ment from the Governorship of Canada. The ad dress having been numerously signed, was trans mitted to Lord Metcalfe on Monday last The fol lowing is a copy cf his lordship's acknowledgment of the same: "To tba Subscribers to the Adilreti of the Merchants end others connected with the British North American provinces. " Sirs I am deeply sensible of the honor conferred on me by the sentiments which you entensiu, end I beg you to aocept my warmest thanks tor the kindness which has induced you to expresa them. Had it been possible, with relerenca to the state of my health, to perform efficiently the duties of my late office, I would gladly have devoted the remainder of my life to the wel lare of Canada, and to the furtherance of thoae purpose* which you state to have been promoted during my admi nistration of the government of that province. The ag gravation ol th* maUdy with which I have been long af flicted having rendered the continued discharge of my lunctions impracticable, 1 was under the necessity of soliciting her Mejesty's gracious permission to resign the trust conferred on me; but so long as I live I ahull never cease to feel an anxious desire lor the prospeuiy ol Canada, and a grateful recollection of the lov alty and public ipirit by which the measure* of my administra tion ware aupported in that country. (kigned.) " METCALFE." "9 Mansfield street, Jan. 97, 1946." The Si.ave Trade?The Augtburg Oazttte, of the 231 ult. a tales, thai conferences have keen held in London between the Karl of Aberdeen, Count Dietrichstein, and Baron Punseu, for a modification of the clause in the treaty lor the suppression of the slave trade, which declares that if a vessel has on board more water and provisions than would be re quired for her crew, the circumstance shall be held as a reason for suspecting her to be a slaver. Pri.vce Albert.?Rumors are afloat in the fash ionable world, that the most illustrious person in the kingdom proposed to Lord John Russell, during the late negotiations relative to his forming an admin istration, that the rank and dignity of king consor should be accorded to the prince. Lord John Rus sell, it is said, held out no hope ot accomplishing the measure. It remains to be seen whether Sir Robert Peel will prove more accommodating. The Dutch are spending large sums of money in reclaiming tracts ot land from the sea. Thus far they have had considerable success in their opera operations. But Neptune is a wily fellow, and though he may consent to be driven away, hs will perhaps return again to-morrow. The commerce ol Amsterdam has increased in a very remaikable manner. In 1844 the number ol vessels that arrived by sea was 1843, whilst in 1845 it was 2139. All the exportations increased very considerably, especially o't refined sugar, ot which the quantity wan 41,800,000 pounds, or 7.2UOOOO pounds more than in 1844. In 1845 the importation of cotton chiefly from the United States was 22,383 hales, or double what it was in 1814. The increase is owing to the vast development which the neigh boring town of Harlem has taken as a manufactur ing place. The inhabitants even predict that it will soon become a formidable rival to your gigantic Manchester. A Movster Project?Two French engineers, Messrs. Franchutsnd Du Motay, have projected a most startling mode of communication between Dover and Calais. They propose to accomplish this object oy a tunnel, to be composed of a series of iron tubes, ot about (our metres long, with a diame ter ol (wo and a halt. The woiks being commenced simultaneously on the two opposite coasts, when the tabes reach the water, ether times are to he successively lei down from a vessel placed over the bouodary ot the last tune, the orifice ot (his tube beiag closed by a disk in wood. The descending tube is to be suspended from a crane by a cord, which attaches itself, on coming in contact, to a sort ot wheel 0xed in the tube below, and the two having been before adjusted to each other, the locks or springs with which they are provided, serve to bolt them together water-tight, and then the wooden disk of the one is carried lorward to close up the end of the other. The Dutch Commercial Society has rrsolved, in consequence of the failure of the coffee harvest in Java, not to offer tor sale at the spring auction more than 200,000 bales ot coffee, com;>osed ot the finest quality. The Irish board of education sre about to build thirty-two model schools, for training (etchers, in the several counties of Ireland. UUO, and oi plate,jewels, dec., ?81,000,000. It is stated that briefs to the amount of ?60,000 have already been handed to leading counsel in rail way cases. The demolition oi the British Queen steamer in the basin at Antwerp is proceeding with much acti vity The tide of emigration continues to flow towards Algeria. Upwards of 10,000 colonists have been em barked at Toulon for Algeria within the last three months. A considerable number have come from Spain, the Balearic Isles, and Malta. The Duchess de Berri has had a narrow escape from suffocation, by sleeping in an apartment in the house of the consul oi Lucca, which had been heated with charcoal. Queen Victoria has been pleased to sanction the publication of the Stuart papers, from the original documents in her Majesty's possession. The guano used in the vineyards of Prince Met ternich so deteriorated the quality of the wine that the plantations have been uprooted. Ireland* Mr. O'Connell continued his repeal agitation un til the 26th ult., when he left the Conciliation Hall gendemen to manage the business in his absence, while he took his seat in Parliament to advocate the abolition of the corn laws, and vote for cheap bread. Prior to leaving Dublin there was a meet ing of repeal members of parliament. This meeting was held at fiadley's Commercial Buildings, the 23d ult. Mr. O'Connell opened the business by asking if there were any gentleman present who was pre pared to support the views of the Dublin Evening Mai/, with regard to the formation of an " Irish Party." If there were any such, person present let him hold up his hand. This invitation not being complied with, the hon. gentleman said, that that part of the business being disposed of, it remained lor them to consider what course the Irish members ought to purse under existing circumstances. For his |>art he was determined to proceed to parliament and give his voice in favor of a removal oi all re strictions on food, and to oppose any coercion bill that might be introduced.unless accompanied by re medial measures. Mr. W. S. O'Brien, M. P., did not consider it expedient just now to attend in Par liament, believing that he would be of more benefit to his country by acting in Conciliations! Hall. If, however, the government attempted to pass any pe nal enactment, he would feel bound to go over to London, and give it every opposition which the iormaot the House admitted, unless, as Mr. O'Con nell observed, it were accompanied by measures oi real, substantial, and undoubted benefit. With re gard to the corn laws, he (Mr. O'Brien) was not prepared to vote for their total and immediate re peal. The Queen's speech having arrived, was read, and Mr. O'Connell then moved the following resolution, which was adoptedThat the Irish members going over to London do hereby pledge themselves to oppose to the utmost all government coercive measures which shall be brought forward, if they are not accompanied by measures calculated to settle the differences between landlords and ten ants in Ireland." Mr. Brewster has been appointed Solicitor Ge neral. Germany. Our advices from Berlin are to 23d January. Matters are pretty much as usual, and nothing particular is stirring. The old tale is again being repeated, that the King of this country will certain ly, some fine morning, astonish us by the gift of a constitution. It is said to be drawn up, and only to await the royal signature. But for that I fear it will have to wait a very long time. It seems rather strange, it the King has the slightest intention of giving the long-promised constitution, that he should demand ol the government of Frankfort the aboli tion of the liberty of the press as he has done, for a constitution without liberty of the press would be like a body without life. But I repeat again, in op position to all that has been, is, and may be said, that Mr Frederick William has no more intention of accord ina a constitution to his peo|>lethan he has of selling ofl his crown and sceptre, and settiag up in business as a shoemaker. The government has the intention of putting down all gambling places, and other government* of this country intend to do the same. It is a fact, howe ver, that two or three of our petty princes, whose kingdoms are hardly bigger than a good sized farm, derive their principal means of subsistence from au thorising gambling-houses The accounts we receive from our emigrants to "S^42S tlieir country, principally on account of therepre?? tations of people who state themselves to ihnrisfd aeents Our government is warmly oppo ??d toSi" The Kins h.m.elf .ome t,tn. ,2o wrote ? letter to lite aothor.uee dt ?c?n?

Our lair American, Miss Cushman, seems to be carry i ing all before her with the Londoners. Oho appeared there?at the ilayuwrket theatre?on tha 39th of Da camber, for the purpose of introduoing a younger sister to a London public Much anxiety seems ta have bean fait by her iriende for the result. This experiment, which never having succeeded hafon in tba caaa oi any English artists, (tha appearance o( two sisters in one pUy of such importance,) seemed rather a bold move forth# transatlantic atar to make. However, it i* evi dent aha knew the powers she possessed; for we never recollect to have aeon auoh unqualified pnise, without one dissenting voice, from tho London press, as ia new continually bestowed upon tha " Sisters " An extract from the London Tint* of the 80th of December, saya ; " It ia anough to say that tha Romeo of Miaa Cushmauis far superior to any that hat baen seen for yeara. it is a creative, breathing, animated, ardent human being. Miaa Cuthman has given tha vivifying spark, whereby the fragments are knit together and become an organised entirety, it was no fine speech maker, no victim to maudlin svutiment; but an impetuoua youth, whose whole soul was absorbed in one strong emotion, and whose lips must speak tha inapiration of nia heart. All tha manifaatationa of Romeo's disposition ware given with equal truth; but tha grief in Friar Lawrence's call, when Romeo sat forth tha sorrows of his banishment in tones of ever increasing anguish, till at last it reached the culminating point, and be dashed himself upon the ground with real despair, took the house by storm. Ia a word, Romeo is one of Miaa Cuahmsn'a grand suc cesses Miaa Susan Cushman, the new Juliet, is a moat interesting young lady; there is an intelligence in all ?he does, an earnest striving after perfection of detail, that are promising in the highest degree. At the con clusion, the sisters were called before the curtain, with honest, unfeigned enthusiasm, by a crowded audience." The Sun, of the same day, says?" Taken as a whole, Miss Susan Cushman's debut is one of the most deserved 'y successful we have witnessed for year*. But what shall we say of Miss Cushman' She was the very Ro meo drawn by Shakspeare. Her wooing was overpow ering. Her passion when, condemned to banishment, she learns the doom in Friar Lawrence's cell, was irre sistible?ay, as irresistible as the terrible earnestness of her attacks on the fiery Tybalt and the courtly Paris.? The sisters were called for at the conclusion of the tra gedy. and greeted with rapturous and wail dessrvsd plaudits." The Morning Jidver titer, of the same date, says?" Miss Cushman bad not taken a step upon the stage when most enthusiastic applause welcomed her.? A cheering reception, towards which all present seemed determined to contribute. She looked the character ad mirably; and the beautiful costume she wore was to ju diciously arranged es to relieve the spectators from much of the tenacious feeling experienced from the contem plation of a lady filling auch a part. Indeed, the remains of any such feeling that might exist were speedily re moved by the excellent acting ot the character, that at once enchained attention and excited admiration. The moment that Miss Susan Cushman came forward, she was received with meat generous and encouraging ap plause. For an instant she seemed deeply moved, but her self-possession soon returned, and she proceeded with all courage and collectedness. The first great trial for both actresses, however, was in the balcony scene; and deep was the attention that reigned on all sides when that scene arrived. The opening address, by Romeo, was given most beautifully by Miss Cushman; and, in deed, throughout she displayed all a lover's ardent devo tion and unlimited admiration of his lady's obarms? whilst ths fair representative of Juliet was most success ful in depicting the impassioned and enamored girl, tbe very slave of her truelove's passion. At the conclusion, the curtain fell upon the greatest success that has b*on known ior years." Space will not allow us to extrart more; but we Deed scarcely add, that our transatlantic stars are the attraction of ths season. They have com menced a re-engagement of twelve nights, which,we sou by the bills, Mr. Webster has been fortunate enough to effect through the kindness of Mr. Calcrait, of the Thea tre Royal, Dublin, where the ladies were engaged to ap pear in February. Tbe London Morning Herald, ia speaking of their re-engagement, says? " The success of Miss Cushman has been so great at this theatre that an extension of her engagement haa been arranged ; and the has now commencea another set of twelve performances. When tbia intimation was giv en ou Friday night, the delight of the audience louad vent in tbe most extravagant demonstrations. Hats and handkerchiefs were waved on all aides, and every com pliment that could be externally shown, was zealously expressed. During the foregoing month this accomplish ed actress has only appeared in " Romeo," end in net a single instance haa there been an indifferent house. On the contiary .every fresh representation has exhibited an increased excitement, aDd at present there ia very far Irom an appearance of a telling off. The curiosity end pleasure thus awakened need not, however, be e matter ot surprise, it is many years since such extraordinary tustiionic ability has been developed on tbe part ef e fe male ; and poihaps there is not an instance on record, at any time, oi so available a nmon of accurate conception and judicious execution?of e clear eod vigorous judg ment on the one hand-of a powerful and spirit moving dsiiaeation on the other. Mr. Webster has been lortu net# in securing the seivices of this admirable artist. " Romeo" has uever before been personated so falici toualy, or met with so near en proximatlon to tbe idee of the great original. We shall not be astonished to find that the whole of Miss Cushaaen's new engagement ia consumed, like the lest, in this one character. The rare excellence of the pet form ance has hitht rto tempted se veral visits ; end further opportunity far the enjoyment of the most impassioned poetry Shakspeare ever wrote, will not be regretted. While upon this subject, it is no more than justice to|Miss Susan Cushman to remark that the experience which the preceding twelve nigbta has' given ner, has graatly improved her acting in ' Juliet.''
