J ARRIVAL OF THE AFRICA. ONE WEEK LATER FROBf EUROPE. AFFAIRS IN THE CRIMEA WITHOUT CHANGE The Vrobable Failure of the Vienna Conference. Most Extraordinary Manifesto from Louis Napoleon. Answer to the Famous Pamphlet on the Crimean Expedition. ANOTHER IXOLXSB KOAN. Fall of One per Cent in Consols. Steamer North Carolina Foundered off Holyhead CO I TIM ED ACTIVITY Ht COTTOW, &c., Ac., Ac. [BY THE HOC8B l'RINTXJfO TELEGRAPH UVB, 21 WALL STRUT. ] Halifax, April 25, 1855. Tbe Cunard mail steamship Africa, Capt. Harrison, ar rived at this port last night, en route for Boston, where hbe will bqdue about noon on Thursday. Tbe Africa left Liverpool on the 14th instant, ani brings the news of her own arrival out there on Satur day evening, the 7th instant. The Africa passed, April 14, American ships Middlesex and Ariel; 17th, pa?sed a brig with Bremen colors, lat, 0049. Ion. 10 39, bound Kant; 18th, passed R. M. steamer Asia, lat. 50, Ion. 27 40, from Boston; also, ship Can queior, bound Eatt. The St Louis sailed from Southampton for New York early on tbe morning of the 12th, having been detained some hours at Havre, on account of the 13th being a holiday. The news is of considerable importance. Tbe latest dates from Sebastopol are to the 6th of Aptil, and although skirmishes were still constantly tailing place, the condition of affairs had undergone no change of moment. there is no confirmation of the reported great battle at Kupatoria and the death of Omer Pacha. The Vienna Conference reassembled on the 8th, but without any result. No instructions had arrived from 6t. Petersburg. It was not known when another meet ing would take place. Further complications in regard to tbe attitude of Prussia are reported. The most extraordinary p ecs of Intelligence by the Africa, is the manifesto of the Emperor Louis Napoleon, relative to the Crimean expedition, which is evidently a reply to the famous pamphlet which was attributed ti the pen of Prince Napoleon, the Emperor's cousin. Oar despatch rays:? The Paris Afoniteur ccntiins a remarkable document, in which the military conduct of the allied governments since the opening ol the war is explained. It also pro mises that the various, motives and objects of tbe negotiations shall be mvle known. The document occupies five columns. It states that the plan of the campaign was ? Fik&t ? To march and meet the Russians on the Balkans. StcoNS? To seize the Crimea. Tiiikd? To land at Odusaa, or some other point on the Rutsiaa coast of the Blaek Sea, but not to proceed fur ther on the Danube, unless Austria joinod the alliance. tiallipo'i was first oeeupted with an Intention to check the Advance of the Russians to Constantinople, but the retreat of the Russiuns from Silistria rendered the fur ther occupation of Oallipoli and Varna unnecessary. The allies could not have operated in Bessarabia without tbe aid of Austria, and not to remain inactive theexpe dit'on against Sebastopol was undertaken . The remainder of the document is o scupled with point ing out the immense difficulties ot the biege and exho norating Napoleon, who planned the campaign. It also contains a copy of Marshal St. Aroaud's private In structions. The document has excited much interest at home and abroad, and is regarded as an apology for ra!sicg tie siege. The American steamer North Carolina came in collision with arother versel off Holyhead, and sunk. Fortunately no lives were lost. In the liverpool cotton market tbe activity which has prevailed of late stUl continued, although at the close the maiket had as.umed a rather duller tone, without, however, reducing the quotations. The week's business amounted to 73,000 bales. In breadstuff* the demand had been quite limited, ex cepting for Indian corn, which continued In good request for Ireland. Prices of all descriptions were somewhat eaaier, though not quotably lower. In provisions generally a fair business had been done at previous quotations. The I ondon money market was rather easier, and con sols had declined to 91){. Tbe packet ship Nonpareil arrived at Liverpool on the 11th, in fourteen days from Philadelphia. The Russian prize ship 8itka arrived in the Downs on the. 8th Inst. The ship Robert, bound to New Orleans, had put baek to Liverpool In a damaged condition, having come in collision off Holyhead with the steamer North Carolina, from Philadelphia for Liverpool. The steamer sunk in about ten minutes, but no lives were lost. The Afrioa sailed for Boston at 1 o'clock this morning. Wind 8. E., with very heavy rain. THE EUROPEAN WAR. THE VIENNA CONFERENCE. The ninth conference wan held at Vienna on the after coon of the 8th, and hinted bat one hour. The Rqmumi plenipotentiaries had tot received their instructions, rroujrn de L'Buys and Ali Pacha were present. Nothing whatever I* known aa to the chance* of agreement, nor la it known when the next meeting will be held. It I* rumored that the Western plenipotentiaries are about to qnit Vienna. This, however, is considered doubtful. Everything at present seems at a stand atlll. New complications are spoken of with Prussia, bat of what nature ia not stated. It is said that Ali Pacha'* instructions are to assent to the joint protectorate or the Great Powers, bat nevertheless to express the regret that the Sultan's sovereignty waa not re established. Ihe question relative to Indemnity of the war la deferred' THE CAMPAIGN IN THE CRIMEA. Nothing important had been received from Scbastopol up to April Rth. The position of both armiea was un changed. Night akirmiihts on a email scale continued Tbe weather waa flne and dry. An armistice of three bonis had been allowed to bury the dead. The allle< report themselves ready to open a general bombardment of the eity. The Russians have constructed two new batterlee and have converted the ambuscade* into an advanced paral lei. Tbe French are advancing towards the Malakoff work* by a serpentine sap. Omar Pasha had not march ed on the Alma aa represented, bnt had ocoupied two village*. half a league from Eupatoria, and had enlarged bin circle of fortifications to shelter ft, 000 men. The al liea were aending him that number as rapidly aa possi ble. Ten thousand Egyptians had sailed for Eupatoria, and tbe Freceh relnforoementa, and those from dardlnia, would also land there ehortly. An Impirtact statement la made, that tbe allies are changing their tactics In the Crimea; that they are about to fortify and hold aa a material guarantee the already xtreng positicn of Kamiesch, with 20,000 men, supported by tbe fleets. The embarkation of the Sar dinian 1 1 oops would eommenee from Genoa en the 15th In the Engliah steamers, for Oon*t*atlr.ople, and would he re shipped from thenoe for Eapatoria, to co-operate with Omar. The Kaeslane have maintained their position on the Tchernaya, and are eonc?ntrat!^g towards Balder General fanrobert's despa'.ch estimates the loss on the night of tbe 22d-Ru*>lar.f, 700 killed l,f00 wounded; French loss, COO V U'd. *00 wounded. Th") R-i?*>n W?*n at V son* few* a lanjoHary en* gagement on the 26th of March; but advices from the Crimea do not mention such aa affair. The Rnwiu Mgiu say that ike women, children and sick are being sent out of Bebaa.^F*' into the interior of the Crimea. Disturbances bad occurred at Krv>ra, from persons illuminating their honaea on receiving fhe news of the death of the Gear. The French hired ateamer Edinburg and two ships to tow, all loaded with French horse*, were J?e t off Bait chick. The Tunisian brigade has been sent to Batovta. Tbe Rust ians lie ny Venschikofr* death, but eihnit that he is wounded. Two hundred vessels are at Oalats, for corn. Tbe Greek Ambassador arrived at Constantinoffe on the 4th. THE BA.LT1C. The advanced squadron of the Baltic fleet reached H siroieon the 1st of April, and it was supposed it wouH anchor in Iansdona harbor until the Baltic becaa ' navigable. Advices from Roetoek to the 8th, say that the naviga t'on of the Baltic would be dangerous for a week or a fortnight to eome, in consequence of there being so muoh heavy floating ice. A Russian despatch from Warsaw Says an army of TO>,000 men la concentrating In the Baltic provinces, and that three hundred guns are afloat. Two divisions of the Russian fleet are at Cronstadt, and one between Sweaborg and Rev*l. Great Britain. Parliament Is no', sittiag. It wax announced on Fri day afternoon that tbe government had brought out a loan The amount and terms are unknown, but the sum ia supposed to be fifteen millions sterling, Almost immediately after the announcement, the funds fell to 01 >f. The Timet' Paris correspondent writes ?It Is rumored tbat we are to bave another levy of 100,000 men in Franoe, and tbat from 60,000 1o 80,000 troops will be placed at the disposal of Austria, should war be the issue of the Conference at Vienna Napoleon and the I mpress Eugenie would reach Lon don on Monday tbe 16th, and stay one week with the Queen. The tone of the British public is that of extra vagant adulation Id regard to the evtnt, and it is very different to that with which Napoleon was treated dome years since. The official programme Is as follows:? Monday, Prince Albert goex to Dover to meet the au gust party. Lunches witn them at the Warden Hotel. Arrives home with them at Windsor in the afternoon. Tuesdsy morning tbe Emperor receives the Corp i Di plomatique. In the evening he attends a grand enter t aliment. Wednesday, the Emperor will be Invested with the Order of the Garter.

Saturday, the Emperor returns home. the Koebuck Committee adjourned with Parliament till the lbth lost lbe last accounts from the Northern ports of Europe show that navigation would probably be quite opened by the 20th inat. Tbe propriety of raising the siege of Sebastopol is free ly and favorably talked of. The court martial for the trial of the officers of the lost steam fifgate T*ger was sitting.

The Riot In Parkvllle, Missouri. TUB LUMINARY PRESS THROWN INTO THE ttlVER ? Till EDITORS DHIVEN FROM TH* TOWN? MOBO CRA1IC MEETING? TAR AND FEATHERS THREATENED ?VIOLENT RESOLUTIONS. [From the Platte Argus, Extra, 16th.] Parkyillk, Mo., April 14, 1855. The spontaneous upheaving* of an indignant and out raged communiiy wt re mantlested here to-day, In a de cided manner. To tell yon that the " Industrial Lu minary," a newspsper owned by George Park ana W. J. Patter hod, in thi? town, is a free soil 4heet, and hat been aiding and abetting the Eastern abolition societies in their abortive attempt to abolition! z? Kansas, for the past tear, is to tell you what you already know. You art also aware that Park has a large hotel in this place, kept by a Irte roller, imported fr?m Illinois, and devoted to the same foul purpose. It seems that certain men in the neighborhood determined to ?' abate the nuisance." Bow tbey mannged to no'iTy so many, and to keep it quiet. I don't understand; but about 10 o'clock this SLvriiing we were surprised to see about ten or fifteen of our nsont resectable country acquaintances ride into town, and go to the print ng office, and put Patterson under guard. Park, it appears, hvl either heard of it, or his good luck bad prompted him to go to the mouth of the Blue, in Kansa.i Territory. At 12 o'clock, about two hundred men had arrived. The press was very quietly taken down and paraded into the street. 1 he crowd was called to order, sod Patter son was brought forth to receive his sentence. One tpeaVer stated that tbey ail were aware that they came there with the Arm determination to black, tar and feather, and ride cn a rail, 0. 8. Park and W. J. Patter son, but that as Park had escaped, and left his scape goat to suffer lor both, he wished the meeting to de cide wbat should now be done with the prisoner. Ano ther speaker Sectored lie voice was for mercy; not that te haa any excuse to offer tor Patterson, for he despised biro an strongly as any man could; but that Patterson's wife throughout the morning bad hung to him like a leech; that she now held on to him, and that we could not intlict the punishment without gross violence to her leelirgs, and peibaps rudeness tohei person. He there fore, lor the sake of the wife, moved a vote be taken to r?mitthetar, feathers, tie., and set Mr. 1'atterson at 'large lor the present. Tne vote was accordingly taken, and a i?mall majoiity went in favor of the prisoner; he was, therefore, set at large. Tbe fallowing resolution* were then offered, and voted on singly, and not one dis sentirg voice was heaid on the ground. Almost every cne voted in the affirmative; and they voted with a ?'vim," too, that showed tbey were in earnest Resolved, I. That tbe Parkville Luminary if a nuitsnce which has been endured too long, and should now be ? l,?ted. 2. lbat the editors, to wit: O 8. Park and W. J. Patter ton, are traitors ti> the State and county in which they live, and abonld be dealt with at tuoh. 3. That we meet here acain, on thia day throe weeks, and if we find 0. 8. Park or W . J. Pattorton in thia town then, or at any eul>eeq>ient time, we will throw them into the Mis souri river, tnu it tbey no to Kansas to reside, we pledge our honor at men to fellow and has* them wherever we can take them. 4. That at tbe inpgeition of our Pnrkvllle friendt, we will attend to some other fTcecoilers not far off. 5. Tbnt we will suffer no person belonging to the North ern Metbodiat ehnrch to preach in Platte county, after this date, nnder penalty of tar and feathers for the first offence, and a hemp rope tor the second. fi. That we earnestly call on onr sister onunties throiu-h ont the State to riae in their might and clean themselves of lreesoiliam. 7. That our peace, our property and our safety requires us at tt is time to do onr duty. 8. That we request every pro -slavery paper in Missouri arvl Kanias to pubtfoh the above resolutions. The Press was then shouldered, with a white cap drawn over its head, and labelled ''Boston Aid," the crowd following in regular order; it was marched up through town nearly to the npper landing, and there, with tnree hearty cheers, it was deposited in the temt) of "all tbe Capulttf," to wit: the Missouri river. A speech waa then made to the crowd, and they dia pered peaceably, each taking the road to his own home. The Llqnor Law. TO TUB EDITOR OF THE NEW YORK HERALD.

Fiistlj, tfci* republic ii quite dlspl uwi with ler neighbor, New Granada, and a plenipotentiary, a la MenscbikofT, has been sent to Bogota to make -eve ral demands on the Granadiaus; and it is rumored that if bis demands are not acceded to, war will be the re mit. The effectual putting dews of the Me lo party in New Granada has been very distasteful to the Cu tacts dictators; and as " 'tin conscience that maker* eow:ird8 of us nil," they are afraid that with the Nuccessfai ex ample of the Granadians before tliiin, their own sub* jects may pluck up spirit and tumble them down t?o. Itdted, bod it not bera for the contina&lty expected tnt never arriving aid from the famous General Paez, th? Monsgas would have botn upset ?ong ago. Poor l'aezt he has lost Ms prestige entirely in thin country; but oil it was always a false on* ever since 18*20, it cannot be considered any great lois. _ Fioni genera) politic* let us go 1o particular*. In the United (States tauch has beea written about t'le case of 'Satire vcraiu Foreigner, " bat the subject has been diaeuaaed with certain calmness. Here, howover, up to these nays, the question ban not been much mooted, though a most ''loving batted'' of the estrangtro was well known to exist. In the United States the question has beea an abMiact one, without pertonalities, and 1 1 believe the great object there if to protect the institu tions of the oountry from being governed, through the ballot box, by unauthorized foreign voters or influences. Here they bring up sa a complaint that the foreigners will not medcle in their politics. In the United Stales they welcome foreigners with capital; here they com plain of the foreigners bringing capital (and this from a bankrupt nation.) In the United State* they recoia mend a prolongation of the probationary term of resi dence in the country previous to admitting foreigners to the rights of citizenship; here they openly advocate a general massacre of the foreigner? I presume, to pre vent their having tune sufficient to learn the wonderful system of government adopted by Venezuela in the nineteenth century. You will suppose that I am joking in this matter, but it is a hid fact. So extraordinary are the Ideas of Vene zuelans of the present day, that last month, in the city of Coro, all the foregners were driven out, and several stores sacked ? the foreigner* escaping with their lives, on board vessels, which took them to Curacoa. I en close you a public p*p*r, issued in this city on the lbth instant, approving highly of these doings, and recom nw Dd;v< the same steps to be taken with the Germans settled bere? gentlemen who have fcstrsdnced large capital into this country, and whose sumTerclal trans actions art* daily and hourly benefitting the country. After receminendiug Cougiest- to pass prohibitory laws regarding allowing loreigners to truffle la the otuntry, tins preuiouB paper says: ? " There is no other alterna tive, er the (ierroans remain masters of our country; and we emigrate, or we stay, and they will all disappear In a St. Bartholomew's nirflit." I do not afllirt you with a translation of the whola paper, as it is too'solemnly stupid, but still it has had its effect among the lower classes. The Tu?f. RED HOUSE, II AKLEM. On Tuesday afternoon, a trotting match came off be tween black mare Red House Belle, driven by George Cooper, and brown gelding Capt. Miller, driven by Dunn Walton. The race was mile heits, the mare to go to sukey, and the gelding to skeleton wagon. The trotting was exciting? the horses being to nicely matched that it was Impossible to say which was the fastest, notwith standing that the mare won tha money. There was quite a large attendance, altheugh there had been no notice given; but the fact that a trot can be seen every afternoon at the Bed House, gratis, calls out great num bera. The Belle of the Bed House was a little the favo rite. although all the betting was even. Pint Heat ?The black mare won the pole, went olf with the lead, was never headed in the heat, with the brown lapped on her all the way, and won in 2.05. Second that. ? The black mare again went ofT with the lead, Capt. Miller close to her. On the back stretch, the black mare's sulkey broke down, the axle having snapped ort close to the wheel. Mr. Copper stopped the mare immediately, and fortunately escaped injury. The heat war given to Capt Miller, lime, 2:52. iXtnl Ileat. ?

The manufacturing establishments of Manchester, N. H., have commenced working under The eleven hour sys tem. By It the cumber of hours, of labor is diminished wittout any diminution of pay. The Buffalo Courier says that arrangements are mak ing for a prise fight, to come off near that city, on the Canada side, some time in May next, between two noted pugilists of New York? Johnny Mickee and Bill Black wood. The tii< nt is for 93(j0 a side, and both men are sow in trainiog for the brutal affair. A steam fire engine is likely to be soon introduced into Pittsburg. The fire insurance companies have sub scribed $2,0(0 towards its purchase. Three men, named Catkins, Kelly and Melson, were accidentally drowned in the Nansemond river, Va., a few days ago.

Ihey dj not belJeve tbat those meaaures would gtv* an/ result dlffejlna materially frem that which tha preview act ? ot the Hoard ha* r* >duced First. Tbo baadtUls which thu Commissioners have bere tofor? placed, an I are now piaciag, in ths hands of every captain at Quarantine, omsht t,o be a sufficient warning t? them against any violation of the law. Tour committee has no authority to ark the grataitous service of the pilot s. and the lawi, jour conraittee ore sure, are by this time well known to shipow Ars and oonifgnees, and they need uot be remindci thereof by special oiroulars. Second. The stationing of a police foroe at Quarantine would inyolvo a heavy expenditure to the Commissioner*, which your committee, under present circumstances, woald not le< l juititled in resommonding, as they oonsider this a measure of doubtful sncoees Ah to the third point of the propositions, yonr committee doem it unnecessary to udopt any further-resolution. The Commissioner have heretofore prosecuted aad exacted tinea from parties violating the laws, and will continue to de ee whenever they can tind sufficient proof to warrant such pro secution. Your committee deem it their duty to say that in retard to the charge of dereliction of duty on the part of the Com mission made before thia Board by his Honor the Mayor, he app ais to have been unaware of Clio acUvu which the Board has taken ever since the abuses in unustiou hare been prev alent. Ilad the laws remained as they stoed until lately, yoor committee do not think any further measures on the part ot this Commission conld have secured the emigrants against the depredations of the runners, as they were en tirely beyond their control; and your committee must dis tinctly declare that the inefficiency of the laws was princi pally owing to the fact that the oompiaints of this Commis sion against runners were so little noticed by the former heads of the oity government. It appears, however, tbat the whole matter has been placed under a different footing. The Commissioners are bound to designate a dock for tha landing of emigrants, and the law makes it ooligatory lor them to do so. This measure has already received tha at tention tf the Boar 1, end they are sanguine that it will re lieve them of the neoessity of taking any more measures for the protection of emigrants before landing. What poliee force may hereafter be rt quired to proteot trtie emigrant on said dock, will in due time be considered by the Board, and the Commissioners will uo doubt he happy to co-operate with his Honor the Mayor in the establishment of better order, and in the maintenance of the law.
