[From the London Globe, March 11 ' At ton o'clock thi* morning, Lord John Ruanell and I the Chancellor of the Exchequer attended at the Treaaui ry. to receive bidding! for the lean of .?8.000,000 for the I relief of the diitreaa in Ireland and Scotland.

At length the Chauceli. lor of the Exchequer aaid n* waa prepared to pay divi. dend* in July upon all portions of the loan fully paid up, and interest upon instalments mad* in each month up to the 3d of July: but that upon stock not fully paid up bef fore the 12th of October next, the year's dividend would not be receivable before the month of January next ir The contract* were signed and the meeting broke up.

On the 26th ult, at the preliminary meeting respecting the loan of ?>,000.000, proposed to be raiaed in tne present year, at which were preaent the principal bankers, * merchants, tcc, the measures proposed were?

A sealed paper will be laid upon the table pren viously to opening the tenders, containing the lowest amount of money that Lord John Kussell and the Chanii cellor of the Exechequer will feel themselves justified in accepting for every X106 of stock, and in the event of a smaller sum being tendered in the several proposals than that in the sealed paper. It will in such case be openo ed and the amount in it declared. r fX"9 The biddings to take place on the 1st of March, at ' the treasury, at ten o'clock." At the time and place noted above the biddings took y place, when it was divided between Messrs. Baring and d Messrs Rothschild at the priee of 8%. lt The Hngllsti Budget. In the House of Commons, on the 81st of February, The Chancellor of the Exchequer rose to make the o financial statement of the year. Ho stated that it was ir many years since a Chancellor of the Exchequer had to > report such heavy demands upon the Exchequer, but is those demands were occasioned by the dearth of food, which was a visitation of Providence. Thousands oi . starving persons in Irelsnd appealed to this country for r' sympathy and assistance, and that he ceuld not refuse. 0 Never, however, had the finances ofthe country been so lt able to bear thoir demands For the first timo there had j been no deficiency bills, and the produce of the revenues had been sufficient to defray the expenses of the State. In the Customs, the produce of every article D for the last nine months, had, with the exception of ar0 tides on whieb duties had been reduced, exceeded the estimate. In the Excise, with the exception of soap, 8 the same had taken place. The right hon. gentleman * I stated, however, that it would be perfectly fallacious to f 1 oVMPt thcaf a o?n?* 4KU-- ? 11 " ?-? ? -.??v VI Iiuuga WUUIU CODllDUe. H6 found they weie on the verge of a check, but mw do i. symptom* of a revulsion He considered commercial 5 matter* were on a firm basis, and attributed such sound; nens to the elfect of the banking bill of Sir H Peel,passed n in 1844. The whole produce ot Customs and Kxcise ler i- the last year was ?34 400,070, of this ?6,630,000 was con: tributed by articles of food, ?'31,781,000 of driuk, and by c tobacco ?4 336.000, making ?31,643 out of ?34 .'>00,070. This must have diminished in consequence of the dimii. nution of employment in the manufacturing ^districts.The n drain of bullion in the bank has not beeu so great a* might be expected. Tin amount of bullion was only . ?1,300,000 leas than it was this lime twelve months. ' The late Chancellor of the Exchequer had calculated . upon a surplus of ?776,000, and the actual surplus was . ?3,846,000, including ?304,000 paid as duty on the im . port of foreign sugar He now would state what the probable income of the "year, from 6th April, 1846 to 6th April 1847 would be. Last year the duties on corn pro, duced ?793,000. He could not calculate upon such an r amount, but atill be calculated in security. Thero had been an increase in the importation of butler, cheese, B and silk last year, consequent upon the reduction ol j duty, and he calculated that this increase would con, tinue, and ha assumed that the probable revenue from . the customs would ha ?30,000.006. Of excise duties he reckoned for the year ah increase of ?ia 7nn imfi 4 contemplated from stamp* a revenue of ?7 600,000, from taxes ?4,-j70.000, from the property tax ?6.390,000, from the post ofllcei ?045.000, from crown lands ?1:10.000, 1 from miscellaneous sources of revenue ?427,000 ; making a total ordinary revenue of ?31,063 000 The expen '? ses of the interest of the debt and the Consolidated Kund 1 would be ?30,736,000 ; lor tho army, ?6,840,074 The 1 navy vote would be ?7,661.000; the ordnance vote would 1 be ?2,670,127, being an increase of ?135 60S. Themis ' cellnneous votes, exclusive of votes for Ireland, would be ?3,760 000,being an increase of ?397 000. The whole ot the estimates would amount to ?10.861 077, making r the whole ordiuary expenditure ?61,576,000 What the ( expenditure for Ireland might be it was not easy to state, t lor it depended on various eircumstances ever which he t had no control. He should be safe in reckoning the ex penditure at much less than ?1 000,000 a month up to the i tuno ol' next bar vest. He could not calculate the sum at less k than ?8 000,000. The question then, arose whether he should borrow all the ?6,000,000 or only a part He be. lieved that the more prudent course would be to borrow 1 at once all the money. The next question was, whether in borrowing so large a sum of money he ought to aocompany it with increased taxation, not only for the purpose of paying the interest, but also (or the discharge t of the principal at no distant time I The present yesr, , however, was an unfit period for increased taxation; for any site ation in taxation always produced a stagnation of trade. He, therefore, proposed to raise the interest of , Exchequer Bills from l>?f to 2d a day. The annual ex pens* which kc should thus incur would be ?146,006 He should thus have a charge of ?422,OUO to deduct from , hi* surplus ol ?489,000, which would leavo him only a t suiplua of ?67,000; so that upon tue whole he should have a surplus ol ?33-J.OoO It must be evident from this statement that he could ill spare any revenue ' thia year; and that must be hie answer to the va> rious application* which bad been* made to him t for a reduction of the duties on tea, tobacco, malt, lie. Having noit stated that he did not intend this year ' to propose a permanent instead of an annual system ol > sugar duties, he proceeded to regret the interruption wuich the calamity ef the country had given to the com' meicial and financial policy which had been carried on * for the last four years with such unparalleled success ' He then read a statement of tho regular increase In the consumption of tho articles of cofl'oo, butter, cheere, cur taut*, sugar and lea, which han taken place in the inter1 val between the year 1843. and the year 1846 ; and showed that that consumption must have boon occasioned by t n??Ul? 1-1?

Having ron({'miniated Sir K I'eel on auch tiring the reaulti <>t hie policy, he concluded by moving a lormal vote, thnt t'n oj.oeo he gianted out o/ the consolidated I'und for the ruiief of Ireland A desultory discussion then took place, in the course of which Mr. Hume, Mr. Williams, and Mr. Roebuck found fault with the financial policy of the Government The latter gentleman insisted that the house ought Pot to allow this loan made until it had insured tho passing of ti e Irish Poor Law, and called upon Lord John Itus sell to impose an income tax upon lieland, as an act of justice towards Kngland. Lord J. Ri'sski.l contended that it would be neither wi?e nor just nor considerate to impose an income tax t en Ireland at the present moment. ; Mr. GovLBua* expressed his gratification at finding I his estimsie of the produce of the revenue for the present ( jeer so much exceeded, and refuted the fallacies put t forth by l,ord O.

Mr. Wheaten stated hi* opiuioa to be that ; the right of women to succeed to the throne of Denmark I was perfectly clear ; that their right to succeed to the Duchy of Bohleswig was doubtful; but that they certainly could not, according to ancient and existing laws, succeed to Holatein. On the 17th ult. the United States Minister and Mr. Whaaton were received by the King. It appears that at length the government of France has presented a bill to the Chamber of Deputies, authorising it to concede four steam vessels belonging to the national navy to a mercantile company, needed by Messrs. Herout and Handel, who, in return for the vessels, undertake te establish regular steam communication between Havre and New Vork, and to carry the Pos* office mails for nothing. The vessels are worth 1,900.000 francs; but, in giving them, the government effects a saving ofhot less than 7,300,000 francs compared with the terms it offered some years ago. When regular communication shall be established betweeu Havre and New York by means of these steamers, it is calculated that the Liverpool vessels will lose 170,000 francs per auuuM iu iae conveyBDCB oi i* rencu toilers, wira* perhaps, six or seven time* the amount in koo<1i anil passengers. The bill authorising the oeiaion of the ateamara ia now bafora a committee of tha Chamber of Deputiea, and will probably become the law of the Uud in three weeka or a month's time. Ever aince 1H40 the Krench government haa had the intention of having a regular communication between one of the Krench porta and the United States, and more than one bill haa been prevented to the Chambera on the aubjoot; but, atrange to aay, different circumatancea have till now prevented the roaliaatiouof ao aimple and yet ao important a meaaure. Beaidea the Havre and New York lino, the government propoae* to eatabliah othere from Saint Nezaire, (at the mouth of the Loire,) Bordeaux, and Marieillee to Rio Janeiro. Martinique or Guadeloupe, and Havannah, and a bill i* now before the Chambera authorizing it to concede thoaa lines to companiee. It ia coneidered doubtful, however, whether they will anawer the purpoae of any mercantile company, unlaaa, indeed, the government bo prepared to allow a Urge aum annually. France, like Germany, ia manaced with extenaive emigrations to America. In Alsace the inhabitanta of whole village* ara preparing to take their depaiture in the spring. Their determination ao to do baa been taken in conaequence of the exceaaive dearneaa of food, which ia higher iu Alsace than in any other part of the kingdom. The government haa received news Irom Tahiti up to the l'J'.h Nov. Several engagement* had taktn place between the Krench and the utives, and the Governor ? VI Bruat had no hope of disarming the latter until after the arrival of fresh troops from France. Queen Pomare had again and again most positively refused to return to Tahiti, ao long as M Bruat should remain there, notwithstanding the principul English inhabitants, with whom she ia on the moat friendly terms, had entreated her to do so. A new governor ha* been sent out to supersede M. Bruat, and as he ia known to, and respected by Pomare, it ia hoped that ha will be able to induce hor to return to the iaUnd, and thereby prevent further bloodshed. At tho half yearly meeting of the Bank of France, it was stated that not less than 17-1,847,000 franc* had been drawn from the reserves sinee the month of July, principally on account of the distress occasioned by the scar city. The details given of the bank's operations were not of the most satisfactory character -, nor were the hope* held out for the future very cheering. In the last six months of the year discounts were made of commercial paper to the amount of 600,000,000 francs, htiug only 18,000,000 more than in the corresponding half of the preceding year, whilat in the Arst six month* the increase was more than 003.000.000. This will viva an idea of the cruelly depressed state of trade. The corn merchant! of France have been strongly recommended by the government to make extensive importation* of wheat and corn irom the United State*, and have been reproached with not having done 10 before thi*. In the Chamber of Peer* al*o, similar complaint* and recommendation* have been made. Corn and flour are extraordinarily dear at preaent, and the misery that exist* i* really very great. A report is credited that " England, Austria, Prussia, and Russia have just protested against the sovereignty of the Bey of Tunis. It i* also said that this protest will be published in a few days." Six first clais French steamers have been ordered to the mouth of the Mediterranean, for the ostensible reuson of assisting corn laden ships bound to Fracoe ; but the real motive is stated to bo a desire on tho part of Franco to prevent the landing of any troops in Portugal from the iuumu ommi) iv jviu kug miguumcb. Spain. Madrid jouruali end lattara of the 24th ult. havo como to hand. The Chamber of Deputies were sitting, and the debate on the addreaa had been resumed when onr advices left M. Madoz had spoken at considerable length, but hi* speech, which M. Mon was likely to reply to, does but reiterute M. Cortina's attacks on the lstuntz administration In the course of the debate on the day before, the Minister of Grace end Justice had approved of the committee's projected address, and declared that the new Cabinet were most anxious to obtain the support of the whole Modarado party, and dotoruiined on acting with the greatest energy against all factions. Numberless re poita were current at Madrid as to the projects and movements of the Carlisle; but very few of them would appear to be well founded. In the JEco del Comet eio there is an account of the occupation of Cervera by Triatany and Res de Kroles, which represents those Montemolinist leaders to have acted with great moderation and generosity. The Herald affirm* that Den Miguel is in London. The ministry bad agreed as to the Oasis of the union of the dan Fernando and Isabella banks. That the Queen Dowager would soon leave Madrid for the French capital seemed certain. Holland. A periodical published here, under the p tronage ol the government, and specially devoted to Asiatic matters, praises in the highest terms the moderation and prudence of the American Coaimodore Biddle on his recent visit to Japan.

The disposition to a progressive and enlightened policy in the governments oi Sardinia and the Papal States, has caused repressive demonstrations on the part of Austria. That government haa marched largo bodies oi troops upon tha frontiers of Switzerland and Piedmont. It f* said that in the event of any disturbance in the legations, the King of Saidinia will intervene in favor of the Pope ; hu' it la added that Austria, which opposed the Sardinian intervention in 183d, will atill more energetically oppoae it now, being favorable to the.ltalian cause Germany. Prussia haa at length received something in the shape ef the long promised Constitution : the king has issued letters patent, enacting that the provincial State* of the kingdom shall be united into a general Diet aa often as it shell be necessary to raise loaaa, or to increase existing taxes. Thus the king accords to the Diet some control ovar the public money. The concession is not, perhaps, very great?ceitainly nothing like what was expected, but, considered as the first step towards liberty, its im Psrtance cannot he over rated.

It seems, however, that they will not be allowed any legislative power, but will be a mere consultative body, whose advice may or may not be followed. It seems also, that they are to have the right of petition. These last two concessions are scarcely worth mentioning, some control over taaation being the only concession id any importance.

The Com Trade of JBurope* I From the London Globe, March 1.1 The Gazette Jen Grieon* gives, as follows, the resuli ' of the corn harvest and potato crop in different States o j Europe In Southern Russia the corn was of a goot quality, but of small quantity. In Central and Northeri Russia the harvest was abundau'; the p itato disease wai only felt in a few districts. In Toland tho corn harves was bad in both quality and quantity; the potato cro] failed geuerally. In Scandinavia a bad harvest. Ii Prussia, generally speaking, in all the provinces both po tato crop and harvest were bad. In Saxony and Holsteii a fair harvest, but the rotato disease committed great ra vages In Hanever the harvest was bud, and the potatoe universally failed. In Wurtemberg, Baden,and Bavaria the quality of the grain waagood, but quantity small. Ii Turkey the maize was goog.and the rice and whoa mediocre. The harvest varied in the different pro vinces. Austria is similarly situated. In Italy maiz and corn good, but burnt in some provincos?po tatccs but little cultivated in Italy. In Swilzei land the quality good, but not ubundant; the potat crop failed. In France the harvest is universally bai and the potatoes foiled nearly in every deportment.

The preparation of the land for th< spring crops must, for several weeks to come, prevail large supplies of grain being brought forward by the fai morai and the stocks in the hands of merchants being ea ceediugly small, it la not improbable that, for a time a least, the supplies may fall short of the demand.

Various opiniona are afloat aa to the probable auprof breadatufl'e which we con procure during the pre it lauon of diatreaa. From the moat recent intellince received irom America, we believe that there jood cause to expect that with the opening of the rela end rivere in that countrv in the couree of the ing, we ahall have enormoua ahipmenta of all aorta of rviaiona, and that conaequently largo aeppliea of all rta will reach theae kingdoms. During the laat tight ten daye the receipta of corn, lie., havo bean light; dthia, added to the continuanca ot considerable #* rta to Ireland, has caueed the market, within the laat v daya, to have e very firm aapect, and prices, which ve way in the early part of tha laat week, have since covered, oa regards wheat and flour, all they then loet, dian corn, atill continuing in great requaat, commaoda a high price of 89s. to 72s. per quarter, while other nda of food are cheeper. It i* much to bo deplored at the poor mau n food rulaa ralativnlv mnr>t, I, j#h?r an that of the more wealthy. The atock of Americau mr lu thia |Kirt haa beeu taken at the and of February, id ia computed at something under 400,000 bbla., and ,i>00 qra. of wheat. The cotton market haa been in a very quieacent atate uce onr laat publication. The aalea hare been only to moderate extent, and although apeculatora and export-a have been purchasing more extenaively, no change r ttie better haa taken place in pricea. Our uaual re>rta, lnaerted in anothor column, will give tho lull parculara of thia trade Aa we have before intimated, the roatrate condition of the trade in Lancaahire moat exroiae a very important influence upen the proapoota r tbia ataple during the preaent year. So long aa the latreaa iu Ireland and the Highlands of Scotland la of ich an extanaive character, it cannot be expected that icre will be much improvement in the home demand >r manufactured cotton gooda. On referring to the obirvationa made in our paper on the 4th ultimo, it will a observed that we then noticed a conaiderable falling 1 in the demand lor consumption, and a reaction in ricea to the extent of about ?,'d per lb. We have now i report a further decliuo of ,',d per lb. on the average lalitiea of American ; Aid on the lower, and quite i tho bettor qualities of East India ; about ?s'd per on Feansm, and Aid on Egyptian, ,',d a \d on Baa and Marnnham, and all other deacriptiona are ore or leaa affected, with the aingle exception of Sea landa, which were in regular and ateady requett roughout the month, and prieea unchanged. The >tnand from the trade continued limitea. end wax again ilow the average of oven the preaent reduced coemption, so that spinnera muat have further lessened eir atocka materially. Still, there doea not appear * uch inducement for them to increaae their purchases au extent sufficient to have any immediate or decided feet on thia market, although we do look for an ineased demand this month. By the latest advices from .inchestor we And considerably more business haa bean >ing there of late, but at pricea low and unremuneraug to tho producers. It ia indeed asserted, that in una instances as low rates have been accepted for cash i were current previous to the commencement of the lvance in the raw material at the and of November lot'. There was, however, an opinion gaining ground tat for the preaent the lowest point of depression had een passed, which we sincerely hope may prove the asa. The entire aalea during the month did not exceed 7,610 bales, of which 67,030 were American. Of the uantity sold consumers and dealers took tOyJO bales, nearly 4700 bales leaa than in January,) of which 41,030 lore American ; speculators 33 MX) bales of Amarican, nd 600 Egyptian, and exportera 3600 bale* of American, 770 Egyptian, and 060 Sural. The export demand la oing to be a more tbau usually important feature in onr larket for months to come; thia now ia. aud muat long ontinue to be, by far the cheapest market for the con inental buyers to opeiaie in By tho latest advices from tie United States, luir quality ol Upland had so advanced, nut they could not be laid Jowu under 7li per pound , irbereaa the present value here ia barely 6%; end aubae uent udvices will, in all probability, show a lurthor a a unce on the othsr side, to the advantage of thia, aa an xport market.
