FVost kit Excellency tkt Cayunander in Chief to the ft if tit Um the Governor- General of India Camp, Fkkozxsuah, Dec. 22,1845. Right Hon. Sir?1 have again to congratulate you >n the succeas of our arms A grand battle has >een f >?ght against the Sikh army at this place, nd, by the blessing of Divine Providence, victory tas been won, by the valor of our troops, against >dds and under circumstances which will render bis action one of the most memorable in the page >f Indian history. After the combat of the 18th, at Moodkee, infor nation was received the following day that the ene hy, in increased numbers,were moving on to stuck is. Aline of defence was taken up in advance of >ur encampment, and dispositions made to repel all Lssault; but the day wore away without their ap leurinu. and at night we had the satisfaction of be ng reinforced by her Majesty's 29Jt Foot, and the iast India Comitany's 1st European Light Infantry, wiih our small division of heavy guns. I must here allude to a ciicumstance most favor ible to our efforts in the field. On this evening, in iddition to the valuable counsel in which you had n every emergency before favored me, you were >ie>'?ed yet further to strengthen my bands by kind- - y off-ring your services as second in command in iiy ormy. I need hardly say with how much plea mre tlu. "ff-r was accepted. Co the moraine of the 2Ut the offensive was re turned. Our columns of all arms dtbiuched four nues < n the road to Ferozseshah, where it was tnown that th i enemy, posted in great force, and ?ith a most formidable artillery, had remained i oc- the action of 18 h, incessantly employed in mtrv-nchiog his position. Instead of advancing to h; Direct httack of their formidable works, our orce msncauvred to their right; the second and rourh divisions of infantry, in front, supported by be first division and cavalry in Becond line, conti- i iued to defne for some time out of cannon shot >. twrcn the Sikhs and Ferozepore. The desired I ftfect was not long delayed. A cloud of dust was leen on our left, and, according to the instructions ?em him on the preceding evening, Major General I Sir John Liuler, with his division, availing hirn-elt >f the ofleiW opportunity, was discovered in full 1 natch to units his force with mine. The junction was soon effected, and thus was accomplished one ' >f the great objects of ail our harassing marches tnd privations, in the relief of this division of our irmy from the blockade of the numerous force by which it was surrounded. Dispositions were now made for a united attack ra."the enemy's entrenched camp. We found it to >e a parallelogram, of about a mile in length and talf a mile in breadth, including within its area the itrong village of Ferozeafn.h, the shorter sides look ng toward* the Sutlej and Moodkee, and the longer owards Ferozepore and the open country. We noved against tne last-named force, the ground in rent of which was like the Stkh position at Mood tee. covered with low jungle. The divisions of Major General Sir John Littler, Brigadier Wallace, (who had succeeded Maj.Gene ral Sir John M. Cash,) and Major General Gilbert, ivpioyed into line, having in the centre our whole force of artillery, with the exception of three troops if horse artillery, one on either flank and one in nipport, in order to be moved as occasion required. Major Gears! Sir Harry Smith's division, and our rmall cavalry force, moved in second line, having a brigade in reserve to cover each wing. I should here observe, thatlcommitted the charge and direction of the left wing to Lieut. General Sir Henry Hardinge, while I personally conducted the right. Avery heavy cannonade was opened by the ene hnd dispersed over their position upwards my, who nid umperacu U?t. ?!?,. k?T" st one uundred guns, more than forty of which we'? sf battering calibre. These kept up a heavy and well-directed fire, which the practice of our tar less well-directed nre, which iuc imuuw v.. sumerous artillery, of much lighter metal, checked in some degree, but could not silence. Finally, in the face of a storm of shot and ahcll, our infantry advanced, and carried these formidable entrench ments. They threw themselves upon the guna, and with matchless gallantry wrested them from the snemy; but when the batteries were partially within Dur grasp, our soldiery had to face such a fire of musketry from the Stkh infantry, arrayed behind their guns, that, in spite of the most heroic efforts, a portion only of the entrenchment could be carried. Nivht fell while the conflict was every where raging. Although I now brought up Major-General Sir Harry Smith's division, and he captured and* long retained auoiher point of the position, and her Ma jesty's 3rd Light Dragoons charged and took some of the most formidable batteries, yet the enemy re mained in possession of a considerable portion of the great quadrangle, whilst ourtroope, intermingled witn theirs, kept possession of the remainder, and finally bivouacked upon it, exhausted by their gal Mat efforts, greatly rMuced in numbers, and suffer ing extremely from thirst, yet animated by an in domitable spirit. In this state of things the long night wore away. Near the middle of it. one of their heavy guns was advanced end played with deadly effect on our troops. Lieut-General Sir Henry Hardinge imme diatrly formed her Majesty's SOch Foot, and the 1st European Light Infantry. They were led ro the at tack by their commanding offi ere, and animated in their exertions by Lieutenant-Colonel Wood (aide de-camp to the Ltcutenant-General), who wan wounded in the outset. TneSOih captured the gun, and the enemy, dismayed by this counter check, did not ventnre to press on further. During the whole night, however, they oontinued to harass our troopa by tire of aittllery, wherever moonlight discovered our position. Put with daylight of the 221 came retribution ? Our infantry formed line, supported on both tMnks by horse artillery, whilst a fire was opened from our centre by such of our heavy guns as remained rff-ctive, aided by a flight or rocketa. A marked battery played with great effect upon this point, ditmoonring our pieces, and blowing up our tum brils. At this moment Lieutrnant-General Sir Henry Hardinge placed himself at the head of the lt,t. whilst I rode at the head of the right wing. Our line advanced, and unchecked by the enemy's fi.a. urove them rapidly out of the village of Feroze shah and their encampment; then changing front to it* left, < o its centre, our force continued to sweep the .-am; bearing down all opposition, and dislodg ed rue tu-my from their whole position. The line then ha.tec,, as if en a day of manoeuvre, receiving its two >seders as they rode along its front with a gratif 'log cheer, and displaying the captured stand ards ? the Khaisa army. We had taken upwards of 7J pierce of cannon, and were masters of the wh<?e Held. The force assumed n position on the ground which it had woo, but even here its labors were not to cease. In the courae of two hours, Sirdar Trj Sing, who had commanded in the great last battle, brought up from the vicinity of Ferozepore fresh battalions and a large field of artillery, supported by BO.OOOGhorepurras, hitherto encamped near the nv er. He drove in our cavalry parties, and made stren uous efforts to regain the position at Ferozethah, this attempt was defeated, but its failure had scarce ly become manifest, when the Sirdar renewed the Mfteat with more troope and n large artillery He ci 4nnr need by a combination against our left flank, anl when this was frustrated made such a demon stration against the captured village as compelled us to change our whole front to the right His guna during thia manoeuvre, maintained an inceaeant fire, whilst our artillery ammunition being completely ex pended in these protracted combats,we were nuable to answer him with a single shot. I now directed our almost exhausted cavalry to threaten both flsnka st ooco,preparing the infantry to advance in support, whieh apparently caused him suddenly to eeasn his fire, and to abandon the field. For nd to aoaniMiii mr u-? . . twenty-fourhoura not a Stkh has appeared in not The remains of the Khaisa army are said our front- inc icunh** **?v -?/ ? to be in full retreat across tne Sutlej. at Nuggurpu 06 ID run rruvMnvivww ...x ^ fiur and Teila, or marchiog up its left bank towards Hurreekeeputhar, in the greatest confusion and dis may. Of their chien, Bahadur Sufgh, is killed, Lai Sing, said to be wounded. Mehtab Singh, Ab Modhia Persbad.and Tej Singh, the late governor of Peshawur, have fled with precipitation. Their setup is the scene of the most awful carnage, and they have abandoned large stores of grain, camp equipage and ammnntfton. Thus has apparently terminated thia unprovoked and criminal invasion of the peaceful provinces undsr British protection. Oo the conclusion of such a narrative as^I have Even, it is surely superfluous in me to say I am, and oil be to the last moment of my existence, proud of the ariny which I had the honor to command on the Slat ana 22d inst. To their gallant exertions I owe the satisfaction of seeing such a victoryachiev ed, and the glory of having my own name associa ted with it. The loss of this army has been heavy) how could a hope be formed that it should be otherwisnl With in thirty hours the torce stormed an entrenched camp, loognt a general action, and sustained two considerable ombata with the enemy Within four days it has dislodged from their positions, pn the left bans of the Sutlej, AO,000 Sikh soldiers, suppor ted hy upwards of 150 pieoes of cannon, 108 of whioh the enemy acknowledged to have lost, and 91 of which are in our possession. In addition to our looses in the battle, the captur ed camp ws found to be everywhere protected by charged mtneiLby the successive springing of which many brave officers and men have been destroyed. I must bear testimony to the valor displayed in these actions by the whole of the regiments of her Majesty's service employed, and the East India Company's 1st European Light Infantry; the native force seconded tn a moot spirited manner their ctl hint conduct To Lieutenaut-General, 8ir Heniy Hardinge, my second in command, my warmest thanks are due, not only for hit personal exertions, which were conspicuous to all, but tor the able assistance be af forded me through all the eventful soenea of this wall fought action. To the gaiters! sad my perse* j Ml tuff I feel deeply indebted for their unceasing ! exertion* M ijor-Geaerals Sir Harry Smith, Gil bert, una Sir John Littler, and Brigadier Wallace (who nobly fell in the hour of victory) fully remitted the h eh exp?etutioaa I had formed of thei r conduct us leaders of di vision*. With the Brigadiers, th* commandant of artillery, and the chief engineer, the commanding officers of regiments, and with the departmental staff, I was also greatly pieced ; their exertions were moot un remitting, and highly praiseworthy. The reports 1 have received from generals of di visions of mlantry, the brigadiers of cavalry, and the comma udant of artillery, speak in the highest terms of their respective staff; and it is my inten tion. as soon as possible, to forward to you, right honorable sir, a hut containing the name* of all the i oiticers 1 have just enumerated, together with the names of all those who appear to me specially to merit approbation and favor. j The hurried manner in which I am forced to col- i lect information, and prepare these numerous de tails, may, 1 fear, cause the omission of the names of some officers well deserving o( notice : but I shall not fail to send in a supplementary list wnen 1 can assure myself of their individual merits, as it would be most painful to me to feel that I had not done justice to any one of the brave men who shared with | me the glories and dangers of this arduous conflict I beg now to mention the conduct of fin illustrious nobleman, Count Ravenshurg, who, with the offi cers of his ruite, Counts Greuben and Oriola, did us the honor to accompany the force during our opera tions. They were present at Modkee, and in this great battle. It is with the greatest pleasure and sincerity I can bear my testimony to their gallant conduct on these occasions, worthy of the high re putation in the arms of their couutrymen, and of the great ancestor of one of them.

Without eniertog into details, for which I have no room, it may be stated that tha army was out in all directions but the right one, in search of AbdrL Kader; that ? that dauntless hero had entered and ravaged several of the French provinces,from which ,it had been believed be had been driven forever, and 'that he had even had the audacity to advance within three hours march of Algiers itself. The sufferings of the French soldiers had been very great from fatigue, and want ot food and clothing. The greater part ot the cavalry had lost their horses, and had suffered dreadfully. Such was the melancholy state of affairs that the militia had to be called out, and the very condemned soldiers themselves had to be armed and sent into the field. At the date of the last advices, however, matters were improving in appearance. Marshal Bugeaud was in the Mezala, a disconsolate place, chastising the people for their revolt. It was said that the Kabyles manifested lit tle desire to follow Abdel-Kadt-r, having found that he had deceived them. The tribes on the right bank ot the Oued Sebaou-had refused to join the insur rection. General Gentil had effected a junction with Marshal Bugeaud. In the Mitidja tranquility prevailed, aa alae in the provinces ot Cfnatantine and Oran. But notwithstanding all this, the recent exploits of Abdel-Kader have given a terrible (right to the French generala, and aerve to show how in secure are the African possessions of this country. China. The political news from China, which extends to ' the 28th of December, is unimportant. The High , Imperial Commissioner !' 1 addressed a letter to Sir John D*' *.

Livcaroot. Cotton Meaner, Feb. 90.?Cotton io Id lower thia week, and in some instances a decline of Jd has been accepted. Thia coatinnad depression in price and contracted business arises, as we conceive, solely from money considerations operating upon the markets of both this piece and Manchester. Had the usual facili ties lor discount been available daring the lest month, the price of cotton, in ail probability, would have had just the opposite tendency. As it is, people sell for their present necessities only, and looking to the future to make up for their present sacrifices. Litkrvool Cotton Marxst, Fkb 97 ?There has been a moderately fair demand for cotton all week from coDtumera. Still the market baa been dull, fiat, and gloomy. In price* there is but very little change, and the quotations of last weak will ramaia without altera tion. No doubt a considerable change as to the matter of discount has taken plaee ; good paper, though found ed upon cotton, which was previously objected to in some qu,<iters, is now convsitible into cash, at not ex orbitant rates.

European Corn Trade. [From Wilmor's Liverpool Times, March 4 ] London.?During the time that has alspsad since the publication of our paper on tho 4th ult, there has been, generally speaking, a dull trade in all descriptions of grain and grain produce. Until tho oammercial policy of Sir Robert Peel hae been finally diiposed of, it is vain to expect any improvement in this branch of business.? During the week ending February 93, the transactions in wheat, both free and in bond, wore unimportant, and some diflioulty experienced in maintaining the rates cur rant during the previous week. Flour met with little attention; under all the circumstances,it it questionable whether millers will be enabled to keep the top price of 66s per sack much longer, unless the wheat trade varies. On the 37th ultimo, the wheat trade was steady in va lue, but buyers only toek fine qualities for the supply of their present wants. At the market held on the 3d instant, scarcely any improvement took place, leas influ ence being produced on the trade by the result of the division on the corn law question, than might have been expected; indeed, business remained in precisely the same position as before, an early settlement of tho matter being looked upon as still doubtful. For tho floe qualities ol home grown wheat, former rates were paid, vix : red, new, 63a to 68t; old, 66s to 63s; white, new, 64s to 63s; old, 60s to 6is per qr. In duty paid foreign wheat, scarcely anything was done, owing to tho waut of suitable qualities; prices remained nominally unal tered. Bonded wheat was in a rather neglected state, at it was in general held above a speculative price. There was little business done in flour, but prices were mostly unchanged, American, per barrel, being worth 30s to 83 shillings. Liverfjol ?We have little to renr.rk npon the corn trade here atneo the sailing of the Cambria. There has been very little business done, aad prices have been un steady. At the market held on tho 90th February, wheat of floe quality had a fair demand for instant con sumption; inferior descriptions were little noticed, and rather depressed in value. Canada flour had a dull sale, and declined 6J to It a sack The market, on the 37th ultimo, having bean tolerably wall attended by town end country buyers, the trade, aa regards wheat, assumed a somewhat firmer tone, and fine, at well at good useful qualities, were in moderately fair demaod for consumption, at an advance of Id per 70 lb, ordinary descriptions at the same time retaining late prices.

We are of opinion, however, that with the email atocka in our country, and the moderate aup pliea which tha producing countriaacau furnish ua with, a material improvement muat ultimately take place.? The Pruaaian government haa placed at tha diapoaal of the anthoritiea in tha Rheniih province! 48,000 barralo of flour, to be paid for after tho next harveet at the then current ratea, and a aimilar quantity will be delivered from tha government otorea, it the above maaaurea ahould fail to dapraaa tha present value of food Tha weather continue! mild and opan, with waatarly wioda.

Loudon, March 3.?Tha produoe market* are parta king of tho aame apathy aa other buainoaa, which ia greatly impeded by the alow progress of tho new finan cial maaaurea now before the Legislature. Wa look forward shortly to aaauming a mora healthy tone, atocka >t deolara being light, and a large conaump in the handa of tion going forward. Importer! generally are refraining from prooaing aaloa, in the expectation of aome improve ment in pricee taking'place ao aoon aa tho important maaaurea now before Patliament ara finally aettled.

Tea?The business of the week has been confined to tbe supply of actual wants, which, however, amounts to a somewhat important quantity. Tho determination, however, not to purchase tor immediate demand, ren ders the market excessively heavy. Wool?The sales which terminated on tha 38th ulti mo, have gone oflT as well as waa to bo expected from the uncertain state or tho pending parliamentary discussion, and the tightness of money. Good wools have main tained full prioea ; but low qualities, which were then much wanted, and paid deaily tor in the last October isles, have been neglacted, or sold for less money. One remaikable feature in these sales, was tha quantity of North American ofTared. Livcbfool, March 3, P. M.?Ashes are considerably neglacted, and the aaloa'made, vary smell, at former prices. Brimstone?A very limited business done, but at vary high prices. The arrival of tha shipments made at tbe commencement of the year may be looked for di rectly, and a consequent turn ef prices in favor of the buyera. Coal?The demand for Coal to very good, and prices well supported. The operative colliers of this dis trict are very discontented, which censes tha stocks to remain light. Dyewooda?An extensive business has been transacted; 400 tons of Cam peachy Logwood have been aold at ?7 to ?8 6a. per ton; 300 tons Honduras and St. Domingo, private sale, price not transpired; 60 tons Sevanilla Kustlc at <6 16s. to ?0 per ton; 40 tons 8apan Wood, at ?10 to ?11 par ton; and 100 tone Barwood, of very low quality, at ?3 per too.

Hides?The market continues in an active state, except for salted Buenos Ayrea, the damand for which baa slack ened since the heavy transactions of the last fortnight. A few sales, comprising 4 to 6000 hides, have been made since onr last report, and at about same rates. At tha publi t sale, February 34th, tha whole cf that class and of tha Rio Orande ottered were withdrawn, except a few damaged Buenos Avrea. .9.300 salted Now South Wales were aold at Sd to 3Jd. chiefly at 3Jd, and a few Now Yorka at Sd ; Now Orleans 3|d ; 800 dry salted Prrnam hucc at 41d: 8.700 East India kips dor salted dark cars, 8|d to 8ja; rubbed, OJd to 7fd; 2nds, 6Jd; heavy, 6Jd to OJd; light, 6d to OJd; Sib skiua, 4d to 7d; good dry Madras kipa, Of to 7d. Indigo?There haa been very little busi ness done in indigo ainco last publication. Iron?Not withstanding the great pressure which has been experi enced in tbe money market, and tbe auaponao in which trade in general baa boon bold during the peat month, owing to the great commercial change* proposed by our government, still the iron merket hss maintained its ground, and prices of ail descriptions of manufactured iron are as high as they were a month ago. Thto speaks wall lor the trade, as Dotn dealers and consumers have been buying but very cautiously, and speculators have been almost entirely out of tbe market. Holders of pig iron, who have been compelled to realise for caeh, have been obliged te accept low prioee, money being so very scarce. Too consumption ' of iron continues unabated, aod the makers, most ot them, are under contracts that will carry thorn on for soma time to coma. Present prices in Liverpool are lor Scotch piga ?4 10s per ton ; Merchant bars, ?0 6s; nail rods, ?10; hoops. ?11 6s ; sheets, ?12 6e ; plates, ?18. Madder?No business transacted ot any importance. Salt?Tho damand has not boon so good sines the last advance in prices took placs, but aa all the difficulties in the supply of coals still exist, we may expect tho pricoa to continue Arm un til the spring shipments commence. Tho following are present quotation* :?Best fine stoved for bags, 18s Od to 30s; ditto in handed squares, 1st 8i to 19s ; ditto in shut# lumps, 17s Od ; common, ISi; marine and butter, 10s 0d ; river freight, is; dock end town dues, 9d.

Tar tars - Several parcels, of various qualities, found buyers at full rates. Tea to very dull, and the only descriptions that have been sold are good Congou at former rates. Tobacco.?The sales this month are 978hhd(, viz 318 Virginian tear, 107 Sleramed, 134 Kentucky leaf, and 620 Stemmed; of these 182 Virginia leaf, 86 Stemmed, 32 Kentucky leaf and 110 Stemmed were taken for Ire land ; 18 Virginian leaf, and 42 Kentucky leaf for expor tation, and 18 Virginian leaf, 33 Summed, 00 Kentucky leaf, and 410 Stemmed by tbs trade Tbe imports ara 314 hhds. from London. 306 New Orleans. 81 New York, and 1 from Dublin The exports are 330 for Africa, 30 Malta, 3 Isle of Man, S Traoquibar, and 1 Antwerp. Buyer* thto month have confined their purchases prin cipally to middling aorta, and for the period of the year, tha inquiry haa been only to a small extent, manufocta rers, even at tb* present moderate rates, showing very little disposition to stock themselves largely. Tbe mar ket pretty steady. Excepting the Ooeat descriptions of Western strips, which are aomewhat lower, there ia no alteration to notice in price*.

ICC?Business has been partially sua I psnded during a portion ot the last fortnight, owing to < the celebration of the Mohurrum festival, which has kept tha Mahomedan dealer* out of tha market. Dur ing tb* rest of th* period considerable depression has ? prevailed, hod this may be traced to a variety of causes, amongst which th* hostilities with tha Punjab, tha con tinued scarcity of money, and tb* unfavorable accounts , of tha home markets brought by the last overland mail, may be re tarred to as tha principal. In cotton labrics especially thera have been numerous forced aalea, and i. prices have in t consequence undergone further.reductlon, Metals?The transaction* in metals have bean confined to a few articles, and have been exceedingly limited. Nothing, ao far aa wa can learn, has been done either in Swedish or British bar iron, and the prices of thes* de scriptions, which differ little from those quoted in our last, must therefore be considered nominal. Cotton Ma nufacturas?With tha exception of the finer qualities ot 45 inch cloth, and soma few descriptions of bleached shirting, which have been in demand, thase fabrics have generally suffered a reduction in price. Gray domestics of atont quality, notwithstanding an inquiry which has existed for thorn for the Arabian market, have given way in prico, though not to ao great an extent as other articles. Bleached madapollame are in little request, and can only be sold at a reduction on previous quota tion*. Bleached domeatica are wholly unsaleable For jaconets, whether grey or bleaohed, thera is little de mand. Prico* are further reduced, and sales are diffi cult to b* made. Cambrics and muslins ar* almost npgleoed, and cannot be sold at remunerating rates. There have bean a few transactions in Tur key red goods at low prices, but, owiog to the caseation of tho demand from Moultan. these fabrics are now without inquiry, and extremely dull of sale? ,, . t cQtf .... Yarns?The market for cotton twist has participated in the prevailing depression. The business, both in mule j and water, has been very trifling, and transactions have been confined to No. 40* in the former and No. 80s in the latter. Prices, it will be seen, have axperienced a gene j ral decline; and at praaant, from the absence of demand, our quotations must b* regarded a* nominal. Thera haa j been but little inquiry, latterly, for Turkey rod . twist, but orange cominuea neglected. Red Lead j* a trifle lower than laat month; White without attention.

We have twenty-two days later news from En rope, and the advices, in a commercial point of view, are highly important and interesting, bnt not of a very favorable character. The only favorable feature in the news is, that in relation to the passage of the new commercial aystem of Sir Robert Peel. The amalgamation of parties in favor of the pro posed changes, the large majority of the ministry, in the lace of the determined opposition of corn law leaders, show that the greatest efforts have been made, and no atone left unturned by either party, to accomplish its object. During the debate in the lower House of Parliament upon thia measure, which for extent and excitement never baa beem equalled, buaineas out of doore waa in a great de gree suspended, and the moat intense anxiety ex isted to know the result. The large majority of the ministry upon this question, had given them so much confidenoe, that a resolution had been introduced Into the Houae of Commons for an immediate repeal of the eorn-lawa, instead of waiting the expiration of the three yeara, as first proposed. The atrongest argument in favor ot an immediate repeal, was, that the prioe of corn waa much higher now than it might be at the end of the three years, and that the agriculturists were m a better position to compete with foreign, rivals now than they might be then. The result of this new proposition had not transpired when the steamer left. The impression waa, that the ministry would adhere to their original proposition, and permit the eorn-lawa to continue in force, as modified, for the full time first named. The passage of Peel's new commercial policy through the House of Lords, is almost placed be yond a doubt. It will be a bitter pill for the upper House to swallow, but it will not dare to refuse tha dose. The opposition have cause for congratu lation that it ia no worse, as there is very little doubt but that the ministry could have carried through the lower houae, by a large majority, a bill for tha total and immediate repeal of the Corn Lawa. Th? monopolists have, through the magnanimity and liberality of the Premier, a longer breathing time than the majority ol the representative# ot the peo ple would have given, had they been called upon to shorten it. They have three years mora to live, qp eording to the provisions of the present bill; but within that three years, there mey be changes in the political complexion of that country, that will call for an immediate repeal of the Corn Laws. Wa do not consider the Corn Lawa of Great Britain, notwithstanding the three year# given by Peel*# new bill, as being settled even for n day. It is evident that the opposition are not satified with the length of time given for the existence of the modified restrictions, and will not rest until a total and speedy repeal ia consummated. Should this session of Parliament pass over without accomplishing any more than haa i already been realized, the next will exhibit an in creased majority in the opposition, and an increased ! determination to wipe out every vestige of the re maining monopoly. The people of Great Britain will not be satisfied with half a loaf, whee it is in their power to get a whole one. Having the representa tive strength, their regard lor the landed interest will not prevent them from using it. They have I been oppressed too long by those odious restriction#, not to make uae of every increaac of strength to crush, if necessary, thoae who have fattened npoa their sufferings, to reach that free trade in bread stuffs which they have so long looked lor in vain. So far aa the government and tha peopls of Great Britain are concerned, the settlement of this exci ting question is a matter of the first importance; but we do not believe that the people of this countpr arc going to be so much benefitted by tha modification or the total repeal of the duties upon com, as many in P^ginnri and on thia side of the Atlantic imagine. There appears to be, however, a great difference of opinion upon the subject in both countries. Ths re duction of duties upon American provisions and products of the dairy, is of much more importance than the modifications in the tariff in relation to breadatuffa. A repeal of the duties upon corn ad mitted into the ports of Great Britain, give# ua' aa uncertainty for a certainty. We have an outlet for our flour through the Canadaa, which enables na to compete successfully, although to a limited extent, .with the grain growing countries of the continent of Europe. A repeal of the corn law# deprives as of the privileges we now enjoy of exporting our grain to Great Britain through her colonics. We shall refer to thia subject at more length than our apace will at present permit. The arrival of the packet chip from thia port, with the correspondence of the Secretary of State and the British Minister, upon the-Oregon question, and the unqualified reluaal of the government of the Un^ed State# to refer that matter to arbitration in any shape, or to any party or power, created consi derable excitement in political oircle^and much speculation in the public mind as to its ta Par liament. Aa the correspondence waa received only two days before the steamer left, there was not suf ficient time for any public demonstration in relation to the matter, and we are, therefore, left completely in the dark as to the effect of that movement. Our advices, commercially, are very interesting, but not very aatialactory. The railway revnletea haa been much greater than contemplated, and it* effect upon commercial affaira had been very ten oua. Several large failures bed taken place in Lon don, and the money market waa in a very contract ed condition. The embarrassments existing among the commercial classes were of such an alarming character that the most serious remits were aatici pated. We tear the railway revnlaioa will be mere ?...i in its effects than the greatest alarmist contem plated, and that the money market will be ao re stricted that business generally must ?u?e'' ously. Its effect npoa the cotton market will be aeon on reference to the reports under that bead. The intelligence from tadft Is of the most rem ble character. According to the advice#, over thirty thousand live# were lost on both _^h * * tie, with such a result, must h,ve , I*0^" ?Lw her COtoli-. .?* to w.mtJorm... for to despatches ssnt out in the Hibernia to the British Minister in Washington.
