T* NING, FEBRUARY 27, 15 Herald Foreign CorrwpoiHldic*. I London, Jan. 16lh, 1818. Stale of Affairs in huland?The Future Pronpect* of Europe?Preparations for a Struggle, fyc. S>me days previous to leaving the good city of Cork for this Babylon of the world, I was called upon, at the Imperial Hotel, by the Lord Mayor and the liev. Father Matliew, tivjnvite me to another dinner ; and while conversing on the unhappy state of Ireland, with its-'destitute thousand*, during the present inclement season, the Mayor stated implicitly, which wag*acciujfd to by Father Matliew, that the whole of Irelacd wanted cleansing?that is, if three-fourths of its population were to be removed, eni some other people, from any part of the globe' were to take their place nnd position, Ireland would be what the Almighty intended it should be^-a garden of the ocean ; but as generation succeeds-generation of the present day, without ambition and improvement, the whols inland mu'gt necessarily come sol?ly d?prndeut on some pujver for the means of preservation?for its exihtebce?}nd the crisis had now arrived, which, in ashort time, would place n innjority of the inhabitants in a state of complete insubordination, and tll? consequences weutd be most terrible. My own impression is, from ocular demonstration; - that the crisis will arrive the moment Father ^Madn'w leaves the island for the United States;' for it is his great inlluence, and their devoted veneration and Tove, that keeps the lower, order in a measure frem openly breaking out, and placing at defiance all law and regulations, and becoming bandits and outlaws, and driven* to it through starvation want of employment, and persecution of thewealthy landholders, who drive them, like spaniels from their do?-kennels,'arid permit them to die on the road side. 1 The distress, both in the South and West, still is daily becoming more general and severe, as the season of cold and rain advance*. The guardians of the poor have been dismissed, that last season administered to the *wante of the poor through Amsricaii charity, jiwhich ,w;ill tend to increase the murmuring anil discontented to buch a lorce to defy all therriilita'ry and police to put down without torrents of blood (lowing over the distracted country. The. continued applications for out-door relieC,are beyond all calculation ; the people do not now think it the least disgrace to receive relieF; that pride which, you are aware, the Irish pearaimy. have always tieen distinguished for,has,asfoodbecame scarce, disappeared, conquered by adversity.* Starvation stares one and all in the face, and no visible assistance at hand to bid them, hppe, for England has enough to do to take care other own poor, who are becoming almost as numerous an her bister, Ireland, and America has done her share, for which sha has received only hard words, threats and curses, from the press and ministry ; aud to prevent immigration from Ireland to America, free passage and outfits are given to all who will go to Australia, and there remain five years; the ministry have, also, at this tirrifr, recruiting stations in every county in Ireland* ia order to divert their attention from going toVArnerica, to swell the growing population'of jijcountry becoming ao warlike aad dangerous^t^ the European world, by annexation and cqnquest. The expected demise of the"ien#riible King of France keeps the ministerial caul^'m also in a continual.foam, for fear of a audd.eyi invasion ; and it's the constant theme amongst'all classes? and to keep up the speculative scheme, the press, as you will have perceived, daily *ts flill charged, as if, really, a French army MW^e,ljno eking tor admittance, as a matter of coUKcsy,~*at Temple Bar. This has at last roused *be linke of Wellington, who, iu a lone epistle to Ge?.. Burgoyne, iu ih?a 'IHmea of the 5th inst. ,Baysurn accustomed to the consideration*, of these ques lions, nnu I1HVC CA'iunutu uuu r^wuitunuui, over and over again, the wlio.le. cot|st, from the North Foreland to Dover, Fiilktstone, Beaohy, Brighton, Aruudel to belsey Bill, near Por'smouth ; and 1 say, that ?ir??pting immediately ender the tire ui DovJUfIJiiVtle. th?re is UUl a x?* -* ' * " '-ii l^ila.uvifjniivJit not be throwa on shoreat any time of tide, with any wind, and in wy weather, and front wb eh much bodyof infantry,sifthrow?oashore, would not find within the distaace of five miles, a road into the interior of th^couqtry, through the cliff*, practicable Tor ch? march of a body of troops," lie. To arm all these points, with nn d'luionHl force for* Ireland, the duke says will require aa addition to the army of about 70,000 men, at a cost ol ?400,000 Bterlrhfe. Thave visited all the above places on the (fo^itAince I left Inland, hs mentioned-by the Uuke.ot Wellingtan, apd paused the coast of CpiDW&U, visiting Plymouth and its dock yards, and c<Lh vouch for theijr?fc?rmplete nakedness es regfttrds-Ay defence, ninl made my remarks and notes wfiile scanning Albion's bold shore,and thought ho^nsy a few thoJsand disciplined troops could land s nd march to the gates of Londop, before meeting, aav to oppose them effectually,^ < The present warlike spirit Trhich is moving throughout Europe, seems also .to rouge England to shake oil her peaceful armqi* and><]ook round on her defences. For instance, because there appeared lately in an Austrian'paptftj un advertisement from the greatest iron foukdry in the empire, in which the establishment cpclinee>ull private orders, stating as a reason, tfift his contracts with government for hea,vy ar^llery, and on* million of cannon balls $t\ *i*h caliHre, will give employment (lav and Viiffht during six months, to upwards of 500 workmen, &c , the lesr is, that a general war ia brewing, with the Pope at the head, and the press, comes put with a llourish of trumpets, with dovfti with the Fo^e * nd papiF;s, nna irie nevu iaiic jioui urnuu, mi England must take car# of herself, atld look ou for squalls amid wars alarms ofi the contiaen snd annexation and conqaest la the waster r world. . The Emperor NickoUs also appears somewhat disturbed, as regftrds the defences ntf his vast ^aipire, and has seat in hast* for Mr. Vignollf a, the first engineer in England, to cokne to St. Petersburg with despatch, who inform*, me he ^>hall leave in a few days and be absent some... months in Russia., on soma great worji for the Emperor. And now com$s the Presidents' message,,1 /wh<ch, by its bald, intelligible language, to be .understood by alkEirope, caused a panic through 'l?ondoi>, and " mum" appeared the order of the '^ay on the Hoyal Exchange for aorne day*, und j aliy, hard, cold looks to all Americans was obi served. This message aaemad to cap the climax, ?nd cause the ministiy to meet olten in secret ! conclave, and cast their eye often to the map ot Mexico, tha Gulf, and the enviable pearl of the ueean, Cabs, not knowing how soen the buntuig wou d fly in triumph over Moro Castle, as at Vera Crux; h?nce tlie late order for so many warsteam*rs to rendezvous at Plymouth, and to ha ready for sailing at a moment's notice from the telegrepli station. t The numerous failures which continae in' Europe have eaused much inquietude in the mercantile community, as well ns the lin^neial onerations, all which tend to shake cenfidence between man and man, who look with sn eye of suspicion one up6n another. One of the me'-t wealthy factors in Manchester infurmed me today, that he had retused numerous orders troin wrge housca in London, which he had supplied lor many ypars, for the reason that there was no Knowing how soon they might be compelled to stop payment, and he wished to be on the sale side. Some of the old nobility are daily naxetted as bankrupts, which causes great distress in other clatses; and for this and other reasons, there ; eems to be a general gloom at this time hanging over not only London, but all England. Even the holidays wrre pasaed without as ininy balls or parties, as there usrd t-i be; a crisis seems at hind, whieh is to shake tnc island to its centre, ana unless some means arc yvisru to restore confidence, Mnd that very soon, it may clearly be seen that England tins hud her best dciys, by any practical observer. John H. Siikrcrnk. Birlin. Dec. 31, 1847. The Condition of Thin/ft in Europe?The Cholera. ? The Poiition of the Jetvi, 4*c., frc., 4*c. Thia year has been a most troublesome one for the King of Prussia and hi ministry, and it ends just as ontowardly as U began. The off-hand .mi in which mattera were settled in Switzerland, has taken them by surprise, and placed them in rather an awkward predicament. They firrfily expected the Sonderbund to light like tigers, and, at all events, to protract the war long enough to give France and the other absolute powers, a lair pretext for interfering; but the course of event* bat oompleteljr overthrow* their . ? i '& it a f < % % us. . * ...? * sage projacta, and reduced them to the painful necessity of looking on quietly and set-ing their friends and adherents trampled upon by the. vie torious rndicals. This is the first great triumph ol revolutionary principles, since the glorioin* days of July, wiien a uew era appeared to be downing upon Europe, until the aristocracy of wealth contrived, by some legerdemain procehs. to wheedle the peppl/! out ot the spoils of victory, and to vault iiUo ihe saddle just left vacant by the downfall of the arisiocrncy of birth. No wonder, therefor^, ilint tins event is contemplated with alarnraiuhanxieiy by the few ; with nope and expectayoi^y the many. All seem to have a foreboding ihjjt a tenons crisiy is at hand, and that some nullity.convulsion isabout to disturb the factitious Tra^iutility in which this quarter of the globe JyiH.been buried for the last thirty years. The ciyil dissensions in Switzerland?the universal Orment of the popular ntind in Italy?the decliriirjt state of Louis Philip's health, and the tevered'and unhealthy condition of France?the suppressed dissatisfaction tlial* prevails throughoutGermtiny?tke liberai attitude assumed by the MVnrjiriau I)iet?the threatening demonstrations of,! ifrkey, and the silent watchfulness ot Russia?all. thase are signs of the times, which he that/uns may read. There were raports'current a f>w days since, that the cholera hud broke out at Hreslau, about two hundred, and at^Stettin, about u hundred miles from this city ;* but they are now stated to have been premature. By the latest accounts, the dread epidemic had come to a atand in Russia . Next spring,-however, we may calculate with eertainty ujiea its paying us a visit. It took a similar course on its first appearance in Eurepe sixteen reara ago ; after peaetrating from Persia to Tilhs, Astracan, anil the south of Russia, it.made a pause during the winter of 1830?31, and then broke Vu with renewed violence on the frontiers of Poland, spreading from thence to Germany, France,'Great Uritain, anil even acroaB the ocean to the United States and South America. Add to (his the high prices of food, occasioned bythefi'lare of the potatoe crops, ? 'J maaminrVkii /vf tli? uttA/ill I ifrtl-J in rr 1 11 and. you will-.pcrceive that our prospects for 1848 are gloomy enough. Who knows, whether the three great scourges of mankind, war, pes. tilence, and famine, are not about to unit* their forces, and to >inpk'e* an inroad upon our enervated race, subjecting it to the purifying ordeal of suffering and Vriyation, and arousing it to a more healthy ana vigorous state of existence 1 - The debates in the British House of Commons on the Jewish .emancipation bill have excited considerable interest'in this country. It was all very well of Loid John ltussell to deprecate the injustice of allotting the doors of Parliament against 10,000 .Englishmen,* for no other crime than that of proteasing a religion obnoxious to the majority of their countrymen; but he ought to have added a word on the much more crying injustice of deprivip^ six millions of his iellow citizensf of the most Essential of all rights?that of suffrage?not on account of their religious opinions, or their moral character, but only because they are aftt possessed of the requisite amount ot pound?, jsiiilliugs, and pence. No doubt it is a great naidship that millionaires, like Baron Rothschild, Sir Isaac Goldamid, Sir Moses Montifoite, ftc yiic., who can puTrchfrjp titles and orders tfiltn ull the princes of tjurope, should b? unablo>ij purchase a seat iu the House of Commons; but it is, perhaps, a still greater one, that men of 'the; highest cast ot genius, the most sxteanive acquirements, the most spotless integrity, should nyt^only be disqualified from entering the Halls of St. Stephen's, tout even from voting at an election,Vf their income happens to fall short of so ruu<*?(-v?ar?that the eloquence of a Burke, tho.wiitiof a Sheridan, the statesmanship of a Canuing, or the financial abilities of a Peel, should bs of bo avail, unless accompanied by a good round balanco at your bankers. What an incongruity 1 .tcJ'eufranchise ten thousand IsrwliUI, while uearl/six millions of Ciiristaina remain in bondrfge.. To affect prodigious zeal for the emmcipttion of the former, and to continue blind to the se/yUurie of the latter, is about tlio same thing as strmniug at a gnat and swallowing a camel/ But this unnatural state of things must soon come to an end, and no one 11 m*rc^ public opinion will universal suffrage and'universul ligTb7flYyi<flf eat in the councils of the nation, will be ultimately triumphant in England, as it has .long been in your great and-happy republic.

Affairt at I*aguna?Naval Matter*?Change in the Local Government, fyc. Since I wrote.yojilast, Capt. Bigclow arrived here in the ateamer^corpion, and he has been duly installed as governor of Laguna. The day aftef his amvtl,tLh^iyuntamien(o, composed of native citizens, w^s convened, and due notice of the change was given.. He than applied to that body to find a houso for him to occupy; but after various consultations, and sending out a number of messenger^ they replied that they were unable to . protwe one. "Very w^ll," replied the governor.^?*! shall be under the ne cessity 01 looKing nn^ioujje myeni. lie accordingly notified thejir^t alcalde that he should .take possession of HifliVous'! within fourteen or fiftten days, and ititffihe ,Would pay him a rea- i Bonable rent for it; b?H that. h<> must find a house torj himselt accordui?fy. The' above namfd liouae is the handsomest one in Liguna, and I believe the final arftnjtfement was mutually satisfactory. It is really gfajifying to behold the cool; uess.with which he.prftceeds to arrange the vurious departments uncL-r his control, am}, if I mistake not, he will IfrhimselPthe governor of this taland. * . The cauoe which was, seized for having contraband of war on bpatfl?an account of which I gave you in my ??t?haa already been given up to the owner, he j%yihfc a fine of si* hundred dollars. The ctnOe~l?y? worth $2,500, and the contraband consisted of a quanuty ol long, sharppointed knives, concealed in n k of ric*. The sloop of wrar Albany was <>H' the b-vr a few days ago, where ah* remained about twenty-four hours, and then proceeded to Campeachy. On liar return, aha will toach at this port, and the late governor will embark in h"*r for Ver* Cruz. Your humble servant will probably do the name; at all events, you will be apprised of the remarkable fact, should it take place, and if not, you will hear a still, small voice Irorn thia quarter. We have had another ball since I wrote you last, which wa? very well attended, which circumstance seems generally to b- imputeij to the popularity of the governor. The room was elegantly decorated with flags nf most of the priuciPiil commercial nations of the earth; th<'v entirely covered the ceilins: and walta of the hall, and were much admired. There is a family here which has become very popular w%th the officers of the navy ; in it are several very pretty young ladies, who attract much attention; consequently Uieir vanjty is rouged, and ihey plat tly enqueue to<a certain degree. A young philosopher, who is anxious to be forward in everything whicii is going oa, presented one of them with a poodla dog^arouna the neck of which was a collar inscribed with the words " Forgat me not." A few days after she ask?*d a young man to translate it into Spanish, which he did, when the lady exclaimed?"Oh! now I understand it; it is meant to apply to the little dog, poor thing, who has lost his companion." There is no custom in this country which exhibits such a want of taste as the manner in which wealthy citizens dress their children; y< u may see boys five years ot age going to school dressed in close frock coats, and pantaloons strapped down to the uttermost, wincli gives | them the appearance of a congress of Lilli.m- I tians. r A few days ago I saw the gate of " Campo I Santo" open, and I had the curioaity to enter, i and found that they were digging two graves ; I a>i'd as they proceeded, skulls and bones were I thrown up in nbund nee ; in f?ct, the whole gmveyard was lit rally strewed with skill sand thigh bones?a perfect Golgoih i. I inquired of on ol the grave-diggers why they Uuz imo graves in that way, when he very quaintly replied, that a person rotted and leit nothing but the hones in less than a yenr, and tliat they had no room without digging into the Oldest ijravrs ; " but," and he, " we rake nil the bones no once a year, and put them in that corner." Having directed my attention to the spot, I discovered a ghastly mound of human bonee. In " ftiose holea where ayea did once inhabit," were aren mall lizards paaaing out and in ; and in soma a Morploa neatfed, tal if diatarbea, it retrettea to L J>. ; - ,j rr>m vwa um ilie inner chamber, which once contained a power (tor ouijlit 1 know t<> th* contrary) which mitflit have-wifld d the d?'8 imes of an empire.
