M? greet event here 1b the opening of a telegraphic fcomnunioatioa between Lord Raglan's headquarter* and Dowsing street, or, more properly speaking, Whitehall, ?where Lord Psnaaiure, the Minister of War, has his offl uial mMnee. Messages hare already pasted to and Iro. The first message took 21 hours; bat then there vrere twenty miles unfinished on land. The line Is now completed, and Lord Raglan and Lord Panmuxe can con verse hourly, if they like. As the last telegraphic des patch from Lord Bsglan is dated the 25th April, it Is pre sumed that the town still held out at that date. The government was questioned on the subject last night, when Lard Palmers ton replied that the message did not |>ear upon the question I It probably informed the gov trnment that it was raining, or that the sun was shining We have no further details of the operations than tha lftth. Up to Itat date the cfiws is satisfactory. The ^ni? gained ground ?ontMfebljr. The extreme Tight of the positions occupied by the besiegers LaiuU of the French, and the; hare constructed exten etw better** on the heights In front of the scene of the l>attle of lshcrav*nn, so as to answer the Russian batte Ties on the other sioO of the Tcbernaya, and also to replf to the fire of the BaLmelon, which is at a distance of Sbout 000 yards. PasstnJ from the right to the left, |lhe next works ere Gordon'* and Chapman's batteries with the Lancaster battery over tbem, rising up to th} Victoria redoabt, which is almost in front of the Bedan. the 12th last, it is reported that the fire of these guns ||kad kept uadcr one face of the Redan, damaged six or guns is the Round Tower, and injured the other Russian batteries on the left. The latest accounts, jwbicb en of the 19th, brought by the Asmodee, state Bthat the whole of the ambuscades in front of the Centra 9ower have now been occup ed by the allies, and con I into a portion of our own lines; so that on this point there is a considerable advance, for we hare first 11 enoed the Knmrisn guns in the rear of this position, then acquired possession of the approaches they ?art re beginning to direct against our centre. This ad vance is the more important, aa the ground occupied by the Russians in front of the Mamelon and the Round Tower eeparated the two diviaions of our left attack, and to a certain extent enfiladed both of them. Crossing She ravine which descends to the Careening- harbor, we arrive at the scene of the principal French operations directed against the town itself, anl here again the re fglts of the Are appear to be considerable, the most advanced work of the Russians on that point Is the Flogs taH Battery, which not only commands She approach to the town on the left of the Careening harbor, but also crosses its fire with the Maiekhoff Tower on the other side of the ravine in Such a msanitr as seriously to impede the advance ot the JbeoMfors. From the first day of the siege, eight months SCO, the reduction of the Flagstaff Battery has been one or the most essential objects of the assailants. 'It is no w Statsd that the French fire had completely crushed the guns of the Flagstaff Battery, asd considerably injured She Garden Battery behind it, these two works being in front Of the right of the French main attack. There is BO doubt though that the town ha* been defended with exploded. Passing to the extreme left of this attack, She front of the Quarantine Fort is stated to be entirely destroyed, and in front of the town our brave allies have succeeded in tracing and digging the trench or their fourth parallel, which mutt ormg them into the closest I proximity to the Russian works I Bx days' and six nights' bombardment have passed then, and if the town is not soon stormed or does mot surrender, the gnns will be worn out from Incessant firing. The Russians mad* a sortie on the night of the 26th, but apparently with little success. From Vienna there is nothing new Lord Jobn Rui *>ell and B. Drouyn de I.'Huys have left. There are all Sorts or ramoie afloat as to the attitude Austria is now fihely to assume. The Emperor Napoleon III. hat, it is said, instructed his Ambassaoer at Vienna to demand a BatsgoricaU answer from the Vienna Cabinet on the ques tion. ?Lord John is expected in town to day, and will, of course, give a long explanation in the House of his Scission and its results. From the Baltic we learn that all the Russian ports there have been declared in a state of blockade. One psteshas already been made. The fleet is at KieL A Berlin paper, the Zeit. states, in the moat positive terms, that on the 12th of this month the American Min ister at Copenhagen gave tbe requisite and formal one We nettce, that the treaty of April 20, 1820, between i United States end Denmark regulating tbe Sound Aneau would determine and expire. It Is strange how *rmly people here believed that the determination of a treaty regulated tbe madm under which this Impost is levtsd, mast necessarily bring with it a cessation of the Impost Itself; and further, that when this takes place in flavor of oar State, it aeceesarily will be extended to all Other States whoee treaties contain the " most fsTored Bfttion ekosi," The United States mail stesmsblp Union arrived at XJvsrpoel on Wednesday. la tha Bouse of Commons, on the 24th alt., Mr. BsMR inquired whether the Hi use was to understand that Lord John Ruasell had left Vienna, and that tbe oosfrrenees sad negotiations w-re considered by govern ment to be at aa end And In tbst case, would the noble pMmorstonl Inform the house on what day he be prepared to make a specific statsment upon the r supply ths house with such documentary In - _i as would enable hon. members to aeeertain precisely what was tbe difference between tbe terms of fered by the alHoe and aay terms that might hare been ?flhaod as connter propositions by the Ruseiaa govern ment, sa that they might clearly understand, If the war Sras prolonged, what was to be its object in future (tlear) Lord ? The batter to whiok tbe honorable ilesnn has addreeeed bis question is of too great and i importance tar me to shrink from giving soms ex -Jetloa even at the pre s sat moment What may be I time at which the government may think fit to fur ?See detailed Information, I am sot now la a situ i to state. But it is sreW known to the House that i and French govern stents, In conc*wt with L_ beat of Austria, have determlaed that the tof* develop? mt of the third point which regarded ??ope? eevelupcsnsnt of the th rd poant, wnicn legiruea ?he treaties of 1841 with res pert to tbe Straits of thenar ???spseasd the Bospborus, should, among other thiu/n, ?a, that the preponderance of Russia in theBlaet Sea *55* hen*forth be msde to cease. That was toe prin ciple laid n by England and France, aad aveed to ty Austria, and that principle was, in the abstract, aa ospted by the Ruseiaa plenipotentiary. On Thursday l?it, at a cot ferenoe, at which w ere present the English, French, Austrian, Turkish aad Russian plenipotentiaries, the plenipotentiaries of England, Franca, Auitri* ani Turkey, proposed to the Rusiian, aa a mode of uklaf to cease the pr?|mtouM of Hussia In the Black Sea. which, In principle, had been admitted aad accepted by Russia? they proposed, a a the method of carrying that principle into execution, either that the amount of Rusaian'naral fore* hi the Black Sea should henceforth he limited by treaty, or that the Black Sea should be declared neutral r round entirely, and that all ahipa or war of all countries should be excluded from it, so that henceforth it ahould only be a aea for commerce (Hear, bear.) Tbe Russisn .plenipotentiary required forty eight hours to take that proposal into consideration; and these forty eight hours elapsed on Saturday. On Saturday another conference wan held, and at that con ference tbe Russisn plenipotentiary absolutely refuted to accept either of tboee alternative* ?thoie alternatives being pressed by the four other plenipotentiaries unani mously. (Hear) Thereupon the conference adjourned tine die, and my noble friend, the momber for the city of London and the French Minuter, M. Drouyn de 1'Huys, were to take their departure from Vienna 1b the course of tbe present day. Sir H. Willocghby? Were any counter propositions made by Russia? Lord P^lmtrftok ? Russia made no counter proposi tions. (Htar, hear.) Mow, any old apple woman could bare told the govern ment long since tbat tbe Vienna conferences would end in fudge I have so often harped upon that ote string tbat I need not dwell any longer uoon it. But now comes the second question. How will Austria act? She is hound by her treaty with the Western Powers to unite her own efforts with theirs until their common object is entirely obtained. The moment haa come. She must show her true colors at last. Better an open foe than a secret enemy. Rut let Austria be ware. Iouls Napcl* on has not yet played hit* trump card : and whatever the consequenoes he will play it if all other means fail? that trump card is a war or nation alities. He will restore Poland. Hungary, Lombardy, Venice, Ac. The devils in be'I will then shout Te Deum hwliww all Europe will be lire and flame. Louis Napoleon and his Empress have returned to Paris, well satisfied with his visit to London H? bad an idea that be would be shot in the Strand, but happily he was mistaken. Tbe illustrious Moon ha? been made a baronet. Our Pull Correspondence. Paris, April 30, 1855. The Orand Industrial Exhibition? American Gonmitt tim ers to the Exhibition ? Complaint* of Artitt t. Tbe probable number of competitors In the Otympfhn games of industry, which will open In a few days at Paris, is estimated at 17,000 or 18, COO. Only ninety American exhibitors have thus far sent in their applica tions for admission. At one moment, indeed, it seemed possible that tbe Commissioners appointed by the Gover nors of several States would outnumber the exhibitors. Tbe Imperial Commission is less frightened on this point than it was a short time ago. There are, ! believe, but eight American commissioners actually in Paris, and the space of 2,200 square feet allotted to the American de partment in the Palace of Industry, is not yet so muoU crowded with productions of art and industry as to leave no room for more. At a recent special meeting of the Central Committee of the American Commissioners, Mr. M&unsell B, Field, of Maw York, was unanimously chosen Chairman, in place of Mr. J. Swaim, of Pennsylvania, who bad resigned, and who received a unanimous rote of thanks from bis colleagues for the patrlotie seal with which he had exercised the functions ot chairman. Mr. Daniel E. GUman, of Connecticut, Secretary; Mr. Marshall Woods, of Rhode Island, Special Commissioner for the Department of Fine Arts, and Mr. Charles Fleischmann, Special Commissioner of Airangement. Mr. Valentine, of Massachusetts, Mr. Williams, of Rhode Island, Mr. Galpln, of Connecticut, and Mr. Alexandre Vattemars, who repreaenta the States of New York, Vir ginia and South Carolina, were present at this special meeting The many ocm plaints which hare arisen against the Imperial Commission on the part of the French, and particularly the Parisian aspirants for the hon rs of this great Exhibition, have been loudest, and it would seem not least founded, on the part of the artists, (painters and sculptors,) whose works hare been refua ta in the nost summary manner. The Jury of Exami tlon are accused of almost as much levity in some of . their decisions as seventy,, er partiality lu others. One picture that was brought before tbe jury at a moment when their fatigue, (naturally enough In view of the multiplicity of the pro ductions they were called upon to examine.) or some other cause, prevented '.'ueia from seeing aught save the faults ot tb? n-inltn#? seeing even the name of the member of til'* chanced to discover on the corner of thecanvas the Ot One of his absent colleagues on the jury, an academiC'4&. alia carelessiers with which xat Whole bnJ i appeared to be managed. The plat are was Its merits became visible whew the name 9t U*J was revealed, and tt was accepted. Works of eqnW ?>"a of superior merit have met the fstftj which the work w M. de P. thus luckily escaped. Nor was he the only art ist ot distinction who was exposed to the same danger. Among Ue works refused aie not a few by artists who hare successfully passed the ordeal of many a pre vious examination. Oddly enough, of the thre? nieces by Gustave Core, which were accepted out of the* eleven he sent in, one had been unanimously re fuse^ three years ago, and had not since been re touched. All the twelve numbers of his marvellous series', illustrative of the legend of tbe Wandering Jew, were rejected, lhe lack of afaoe is assigned for the merci less, and In some instances, it must be added, the taste less rigor of the jury. Foreign artists are treated more liberally than French artists, which is perhaps more po lite than just. If the foreign schools excel in spite of the remoral from the different museums of the ohoices t productions of the modern French school, in order that they may compete with those ot the former, there will be plenty of disappointed artists to exclaim, "Ah! the glory of France would hare been eared If my picture had not been refused." They will enjoy at least that , satisfaction. Only one American sculptor, Eugene Warbury. of New Orleans, has yet forwarded anything for exhibition. Mr. Healy, and ten or eleren other American artists, whose names I will send yon with notices of their pictures, ai soon as I shall hare seen the latter, will exhibit. The inrasion of foreign riaiters does cot yet begin to|confiim tbe exlraragant hopes of the landlords and tradesmen of Paris, who still, bowerer, regard the approaching exhibition as an inexhaustible mine of wealth.

A proposi tion to take the mosopoly from tobacco was not real. About a million and a half of dollars have just arrived, sent by the Captain General of Cuba, in bills of ex change, for the purpose of the equipment of the troops who will leave for Havana in May. The state of tiaanoes here at present Is not very good. A loan of 82,000,000 which had been realized has been spent, and the pronoeltions made to the government for the large loan of 980,000,000 are inadmissible. The par ties wanted scrip at 82 and 83 per cent, aad that more than half the loan of $26,000,000 should be appropriated for four years, ae a guarantee of tha interest of the debt; so that an operation of this nature, instead of as sisting the treasury, or enabling it to pay off the floating debt, would only be a good business far the contractors.

In aecordanee with the arraageeaent made between General Cearobert and asyaetf, the batteries of the Trench and Fngllah armies opened upoa Hebastopol sooa after daylight yesterday morning. The weather was extremely anpropitioue.

Thia morning ha* been baey, aad for some tiaae there was a dr zeling rain, but It ia clearing this afternoon, and there la again a proepect of fine weather. The country yeetetday was covered with water, and the ground wan sgaia very deep The benches were likewise extremelv musdy. aad their condltioo added greatly to the later* of the m?a employed la the batte. riea, who eW#fl7 of aatlora, artillerymen and "^Eey* condue/** dutien admirably, and I am aorry to^tSt tto /ormar, particularly the navy, ?ua. tained considerable - ,v. , ,t . ..

Since I wrote to your Lordnhip on the 10th Inst , a ateady and heavy fire upon the wcrka of the ene my baa been maintained from all the batteriea of the alllea. ihe fire of the British artillery, chiefly directed against tie Garden batteries, the Barrack batter), the Redan, the Malakotf tower, and the Mameloa, haa been most ef fective. and the enemy's work* hare suffered Tory con siderably, although they bare, as ut<ual, made a good use of the eight to repair damages, not (ithhtsnding that the vertical fire baa been continued throughout the twenty four hours. The practice both of the naval brigade and the artil lery has been excellent. The casualties have not been very numerous, but the Ions hu fallen heavily upon the sailors, as yoar liordahtp will see by the accompanjtng returns, au4 the Hoy si Na vy has to deplore the death of Lieutenant Doug' as, who uad served with great ability and Mai from the com mencement of the siege. Lieutenants Urmston and D'Aeth, Royal Navy, and Steele, Rojal Marine Artillery, all valuable officers, have been -wounded The Royal Artillery has also to lament the death of Lieutenant Luce, who was an officer of much promise; and Lieutenants Sinclair and L'EstruDge are among the wounded. The former baa sustained several severe in juries, bnt I am happy to add that there is every hope of his recovery. Tho/ are both highly meritorious offi cers. Captain CrOfton, of the Boyal Engineers, who bad, in the course of the protracted ope-atlons before Sebasto pol, rendered most essential service, has also received a wound which will, I fear, detain him from duty for a very considerable time. Our batteries and parapets continue to stand remarka bly well, not with standing the very unfavorable slate of the weather. Ihe enemy's fire has been comparatively slack, but the practioe good: and, owing to their having ascertained the range of our batteries with great ncety, several guns have been disabled in both the right and lelt attacks. Towards the leherna;a nothing important has been obeerved; but small bodies of men, lrom 160 to 5 )0, have been seen, with a lieavy gun and some ordnance carriages, moving along the Inkermann heights towards Mackenzie's Farm road, near which it has been placed in position. ^ > Although the duties hav? been unusually tevere and arduous, both by day and night, during the week, they have been carried out with the utmost cheerfulness and seal, reflecting much credit both on officers snd men. The submarine telegraph has been safely brought to the Monastery from Cape Kelegra; and as soon as it is established at the former place, the engineers will pro. ceed to convey it from the latter to the immediate neigh torhood of Varna, where I hope it may be in a state to act in a week or ten days from this time. The first division of the 10th hussars arrived this day at Balaklava. I have, &c., RAGLAN. ANOTHER TfiBBIBLE NIGHT CONFLICT. Since 11:10 (Saturday morning 12:30 A. M., April 14,) the fight has been raging, ami I have returned onoe more to my den, in despair as to its. cause. I am now inclined to think it was a sortie in the trenoh, which was unsuccessful, was renewed, and was finally repulsed victoriously, and with great loss to the enemy. It ap Cars that at first, about 16 o'clock, drums were heard ating a charge or alarm all alonp the French linea at flrbt; but whether they were Rusetsn or French drums no one can say. The cheers were undoubtedly Russian. Sir John Campbell despatched Captain Hume, aide-de camp, to head quarters, to learn the cause of the firing; but as nothing was known there respecting any attack to be made by the French, it is almost certain that this busy night has been the work of the Russians. There is now a profound silence ? not a gun can be heard, and the bonid din of shot and shell screaming and whistling through the air, the burets, of cannon and bombs, the cheers, and rolling volleys, have all died away, and the deadly lights have died ont and left all the Alack, waste in darkness. While the fight lasted the quantities of shell thrown by both sides were pro digious. They might be seen six and tight at a time seaming the shy with their fierj cWw and the* Vest ing will , a bright red flash, Vhlch lit Up for an instant the smoke, and Bathed trough it like a beam from the uvl 5? a ^nrkv clous. The French threw , touquets. It0 three, ana four shells from one mortar, in fiignts at a time, and must ha>e caused (earful havoc in the enemy's lines. At every crashing volley our men used to grow quite excited, and many a ' 1 Bono Fran ceese" ran through the crowd; but the few Frenehmen who were there talked in subdued and eager tones with a deeper interest in the fate of their gallant eomrades than we eould feel. Towards the close of the strag gle the Russians fired angry voUeys from thtTr cannon, and threw a multitude or shells into the French tfdes, which were paid back with interest. It must bare b!(H the most sanguinary affair we have had since In kermann, and no doubt the Monileur will let as know the truth of it, atd give us additional reason to admire the gallantry of our alliee. Our men seemed to think It was a French attack, and one fellow exclaimed, "Oh, when are ire to get a chance?" Another exclaimed, "When we do. JacV l hope to the Lord they'll let us go at it by daj light. I like to fee my ia-my!" The progress of the battle was watched with the most intense anxiety, and many were the speculations and arguments respecting th* lines of fire?as to whether they were from friend or foe, k.nd as to which was which, and who were gaining and who were losing. At last, wT.h the silence we aU dispersed,' and the camp is onoe more profoundly quiet, for the reports from the rifle pits are deadened by the wind. THE L ATI ST TBOU SXBASTOPOL. General IMnce GortiehakofT reports on the 22d April, from Sebsstopol, that on that day the enemy had slackened their fire, which had been very violent during the preceding twelve days. The loss of tbe garrison had been much less in the last few days than these pre ceding. There was nothing important from any other part of the Crimea. [From the London News of April 27.] A telegraphic message from the Crimes, of data as recent as Wednesday, reached the Admiralty yesterday) but -to a late hour this morning the government, now in sole possession of the quickest means of communiea* tion, appears to have bad nothing important to an nounce. An opinion is gaining ground that the assault will not take place before the disembarkation of the Sar dinian troops in tbe Crimea. TBI BCB8IAKB IN THE CRIKEA. According to some - papers found on a supposed de serter, there are two divisions of Bnssian infantry at l'erekop. Except these and four battalions, chiefly in valids, at tome villages four leagues frem Rupatona, on the road to Simpheropol, there is no Infantry on this side, as the greatest part of the cavalry seems eonoentrated about Fupatoria. Seven regiments of eavalry are on the two roads to Simpheropol and Perekop. Odessa is strongly fortified. Nine new batteries had been thrown np. The Probable Departure of LohIi Napoleon (or the Crimea. [From the Lonlon News, April 33.] There appears to be no longer any ration to doubt that the Emperor of tha French will proceed forthwith to the Crimea. In tha Conttitutionnel of Monday it la stated that hia camp equipage baa already bean sent off; ?nd the 10th of May la confidently named in Parle aa the day on which ha will take bis departure.

Hla victories hare hitherto been gained in civil contents; it remain* te ba teen whether he haa inherited the mili tary talenta of hia home.

Hia pretence in the Crimea seems desirable aa a meana of M unity to tha operations of a campaign carried on isrmlesof at least four inde pendent nation* A* victory will tend to consolidate hia throne, he haa every Inducement to urge on the war with energy; and at the same time, from all we can learn, the EmperOr ie too profoundly impreaaed with the necessity of not over at raining tha reaourcea of France to he lad aatray by snecees. What conree the Emperor will pursue remain* perhaps to he decided by the etate la which he will flna affairs when he landa In the Crimea. The telegraphic account* of the progress of the bombardment of Sebastopol are necessarily curt and incomplete. Rumor* are afloat, koweyer, to the affect that no great progress 1* being made by the assailants: that the advantage* they have gained bave been pnrchaeed by eoaatderaUe less of life; and that the defencee *tiU in the hand* of the Russians ate of the meet formidable strength. If theie state mente aie w.U founded, tbey go far to confirm the opin ion we have more than c nee had occasion to express that the Russian* io the Crimea mnst be beaten in the field before Bebastopol eaa be taken. It will also be born* in mind that in the review of the operations of the Allies in Turkey and the Crtsoea, which was published in the HtmiUvr ef the 11th inst . ftgret Is expressed that the plan cf disembarking atTbeodoela, advancing by the way of Sfmpheropol, cutting off the Ramaa oommuaf -ations sod beating them in the Md before investing riebasto pol, had ma abnadoaed. This wae the Emperor's original scbetne of a Crimean campaign The actua position of the allkd loroes in the Crimea may prevent it* being resumed to Its fnD extent; but both the natural predilection which Napoleon UI. mnntfeel fer hia own pis n, and the probable state of stairs before Bebaetanol, seem to render It moat likely that some combination will be made with a view, first, to defeat the Russian army, and then invest tie fortress la due torse. Some tbirg might assuredly be done by the vessels of lightest draught In the allied fleets, to cat off the Russian communications with the Crimea by way of the Sea of Aroff.

It ought, however, to be kept in m;nd that Sebastopol, ia the possesion or Russia must always be in the Black Sea what Algler* was in the Mediterranean. It threatens at once the mouth of tte Danube anl the entry of the Bosphorux. It dees appear highly inexpedient to allow Ruei-ia to maintain such an advsnoed post on the Kuxine. There ia little or nothing of Russian nationality in tbe Crimea; it ia not, in tact, an integral part of the Mus covite empire. Whatever Is to be done with the pro vince at the close of the war. the Interests of Europe require that it should not be allowed to revert to Rns ia. Operations In the Baltic. [Frcm the London Chronicle, April 2fl.] The appearance of the magnificent British fleet in the Bultlc rt-a ban once more paralyzed the commerce or Russia, and imposed upon the naval forces of that em pire the humiliating alternative of remaiain^ uudrr the convenient shelter of the granite walla of Cronstadt and Sweaborg, or of courting certain destruction by vestur ing into tie open sea. A commendable activity has been displayed by Commodore WaUon and the flying squadron tender Lis command, in pushing forward, in despite ef the difficulties of the navigation, and of the impedimenta created by the floating ice. That squadron will anticipate the departure of scores of Kussian ves rels that were only awaiting the breaking up of the ice toercspethe vigilance of our cruisers. Few of theie vessels will reach their destination, and whilst an unex pected number of valuable prizes will reward the promp titude and activity of our ships, the oemmercial navy of Rustia will be crippled beyond recovery. Admiral Dunda* baa signalized his arrival in the port of Kiel by proclaiming the strict blockade of Liban, and of all the ports along the littoral as far as Riga. With out a doubt a vigorous blockade along the whole coast will be enforced, and there, we fear, terminate the services that can be reatonablv expected from the Baltic fleet. Not that these are trifling, for they result in completely neutralizing the existence of the enemy's fleets, ana In destroying the mercantile navy of Russia. To anticipate any otter success would be foolish; aad it would be alike unpatriotic and inconsistent to eaeourage the public to believe that an attack either upon Cron stadt or tiweaborg is practicable or to be deiLred. Attitude of Austria. The Paris correspondent of the London Newt points to the method which Austria will most probably adopt In order to creep out frrm the engagement* of the treaty of December 2d. Thus sbe will continue to say that she Is ready to declare war upon Ruasia when the con ferences ate broken up; but this is not the case; they are only suspended. The semi-official Austrian Corret punh-nt has already broken this ground. The London limes' Paris correspondent states that on Tuesday n'ght a courier left Parla for Vienna with des patches from the Emperor for H Drouyn de l'Huys. These despatches are described as decided in their tone, and the French Plenipotentiary U instructed to call up on the Austrian Cabinet to declare categorically whether It means to fulfil its pledges, and to take the part that tecomes it as a great power against the common enemy, now that Russia has rejected the propositions or the powers. The demand is said to be made in terms which admit neither of evasion nor delay. The Patrie publishes a despatch from Vienna, dated the 26tl>. which states that the Austrian government is about to decree a new levy of 80,000 men, and that the propositions relative to the mobollsatlon ot the federal contingents are about to be renewed. The Vienna Conference*. [From the London Chronicle, April 28.1 On Monday last we were officially informed by Lord Palmerston, that the propositions of the allies had been absolutely rejected by Russia, aad that the negotiations were at an end. Moreover, on the same high authority, no counter-propositions had been submitted by the Rus sian Plenipotentiaries to the attention of the represen tatives of the Western Powers, 10 that all hopes of a peaceful solution of the Eastern question had vanished. After the official statement in the House of Commons, our gnat surprise may be imagined when, from an au thentic source, we are informed that the negotiations had not otasid at Vienna, and that ceunter-propositlons had been advanced by Prince Gortschakoff. The latter were apparently of an unsatisfactory nature, for their rejection by the Allied Powers ensued. In the mean, while, Lord John Russell had taken his departure from Vienna, hut this event had apparently exercised no great irfluenee on his brother diplomatists, who resumed thtir delib erations even in the absence of the great whig luminal y. * ? * ? * Of the precise nature of the counter proposition cfTertd |by the Rdflian Plenipotentiaries, we are as ye uninformed. From the fact of their having been re jected by the Allied Powers we Infer, not alone t'aat the c< millions imposed therein were inadmissible, but that the pro,o?als thenif elves were a new ruse of the Russian diplomatists It was less with a view of concluding a teace tbat these counter- proposition! were framed; for, bad the Ciar been sincerely desirous of arrsetmg the cyogress of the war he would not have refused the mo derate and honorable interpretation of the four points. The counter propositions were, in a word, advanced with the definite view of proving to the willing eyes of tie German Courts the paciflo instincts of Russia, and of tiuowiag the responsibility of the war, by their re jection oi JWs last appeal, on the Pojrers of the West, The departme of M. l'Huys from Vienna has teen deferred for the ^i&B&Ant, 1?<? tllf ?X fectation of a renewal of segfetiatiofts than with the view of arriving at a perfect understanding with Austria, lhat empire has at length en tered into a stage which was perhaps little anti cipated by its rulers when, in concurrence with the governments of Great Britain and France, they ac cepted ilie responsibilities of the treaty of the Id or De cember. Austria has, we believe, never despaired of a peaceful solution of the Eastern question, wnich would increase her influence in Europe, and perchance add to ber territorial extent. By the absolute rejection of the four points by Russia, the day dream of peace indulged in by Austria has been rudely destroyed, and she is now called upon, in the name of honor and in her own in terest. to declare herself openly against tbe Czar. The day of "wonderful ingratitude," predicted by the late Prince Schwarzenberg is steadily approaching. Were Austria to enter frankly and with energy into the lists, the war with Russia would be less protracted and more decisive. Heeitaticn in the council chamber and in the field infuse fresh determination and vigor into the breast ef the enemy. Some delay will, we fear, take place be fore an open determination is taken by Austria. It is, however, aatlsfactory to know that the interests of the Allied Powers are in safe keeping, and that the influence commanded by talent and perspicacity exists in the pre sence, at Vienna, of M. Drouyn de l'Huys. The Political Crlala In England. [Ficm the London Chronicle, April 28.] Tie Cabinet of Lord Palmeraton may now Consider itself aa at length completed. It ramaina to be seen whether the accesHlon of Lord Joka Russell to its mem bers will work any visible effect upon tba cause of ad a. Integrative reform. The eaieer of that noble lord has of late been strangely checkered with alternate victory and defeat. The redoubtable vanquisher of the Aberdeen administration, who by a coup d'etat ? by the mere stroke of his pen ? annihilated tie coalition under which the Derbvites had been overthrown, was gallantly sent forth to battle with the statesmen of Russia. Bat te be a victor at Dome waa very different from being also a vanquisher abroad. Lord Jobn Kusaeil returns to this country humiliated by another defeat. He beats at length a baity retreat from Vienna, overwhelmed and dismaxaAlm the legion of evasions and mystifications ?fMHPPVintenc?, aa by the waad of the genii in kWwrn story, through the creative ingenuity of Titoff and Gortsehakoff. a * a e a a * White discontent Is spreading among all classes of the community, and Her Majesty 'h ministers rest indifferent or peralyxed spectators, active and ambitious persons sre Felting thepropitious occasion to preflt by a coming excitement The great question which has latterly agitated the country, to an extent establishing haw pro found is the national disappointment and sham*, ia at no very diataat data to be mooted In the House of Com mons in a manner too formal to permit of ministerial evasion. Wb?n a whole nation is crying out for juatieo, the magnitude of the case reflects a kind of importance oa almost aay parson who may take it in hand One of the most menacing symptoms of the present state of public feeling is the absence of a rallying point A movement taken op by a party too often shrinks to the dimensions of party. In that which it 'ia to be feared la now preparing In this country, it is difficult to say how it oeuld he headed by aay of the statesmen to whom the public have been aecuatomed to look as the chiefs of various political sections. In its J mature* it it too analepMU to ike "Know Nothing" maoemmt in Ame rica Co allow of ilt being affiliated by whigt ortoru^. A s It bas its origin in .the profound disgust of the public at the feebleaese with which tha war la condnoted. it oan scarcely be led by those other gentlen* n ? the self ap pelated political representatives of the great industrial and coKmereial community ? who lost their anee bril liant pos tion by their maudlin 017 for peaes. There ia but too much reason to apprehend that men may arise, less bound to society by we hostages of wealth aad sta tion, who will strive to push beyond its fair limits aa agitatkea for a perfectly legitimate object. Ia the abeenee, then, of accredited leaders, clever ad venturera rush In to avail themeelves of a tempting op portonity to achieve notoriety and join in the eerasaWe for power. They have their nee, however, if, by their il regulated energy, and their "passion for ra forming the world,'' they open a safe ty valve for public disoo stent, and cause the national opinion to be definitely pronounced. Mr. Lay ard bas ahot np, rocket like. Into a prominency too ead dtn to be permanent. By his valuable labors at Niae veh, he earned and obtained tba gratitude of mankind. It la tice thing, however, to dig up buried cttlea, another to aspire to a share in the government of this country.

Ik U not inoonsistent with hoi antfcuilmT* of Mr. Ujud, that the offence given to hla vanity by the Premier's contemptuous treatment of his questions on Thursday evening, may have been the im m.d'ate cause of this not'ee of motion. Thbugb the mover may have little specific weight, the motion Ti ren dered a grave .one by the peculiar temper of the public mind at the tinse of its announcement. It 1mm been by a dexterous choice of occasion that Mr. Boebuckand Mr. Tbomas Dunoon be ? both prominent member* of the ac tive class in which Mr. Layard has enrolled himself? have, from time to time, produced parliamentary re Knits dUproportioned to their personal influence It it tbe fault of tbe minister of the day if he permit* the public a (Tain to be *o mismanaged, that these small aspi rants are able to invest themselves with a fasti tiou* im portance. In Lori Palmeraton's case, this course of corduct has been singularly unpardonable, because the public would have been eontent with so little at his bands, had that little been dfiered with- a frank sympa thy and a hearty good will. Mr. Layard and his motion would be alike Insignifi cant, were it not that the evils pointed at undeniably exist. Lord Palmeraton has formed his ministry aa if he were at the beginning instead of at the end of his career. Even this might have been overlooked, beoause the people have been accustomed to see the aristocracy in the high places, and the day is not yst come for tbat Hnal struggle between Saxon independence and Norman privilege, which Thierry shadows forth in bis profound and eloquent history. It is rather the Premier himself who has wounded the pride of the nation, by treating disaster with indifference and remonstrance with disdain. We know well that all the cbsoges demanded, not more by the public will than by the justice of the case, cannot be silected in a day. We kni>w that a silent but universal revolution in our system will alone meet the growing wants and around intelligent* of the people. We are not so unreasonable as to demand all this at the outset of a gigantic war. But Lord Pal merston, who had the ear and the confidence of the na tion, might have shaped out a programme, to which he would have pledged himself and bis successors; and a few instalments? especially if they had involved a little sell saorifice on the part of "the families"? would have been accepted aa ample payment on account. As It la, the Premier has incensea the public into a tacit adop tion, by anticipation, of the 6 rat petition of grievances that may be presented for their acceptance. It is not the 6 est instance of an aristocracy being endangered by the rash obstinacy of one of their own order. Bank ? t England. Acceunt for tbe week ending Saturday, April 21, 1855.

The first matter is within my control and shall be recti fied : the second also, as far as it is possible : but while we are making tip our trains? several times daily? and some times upon tbelr arrival, there will be a few minutes in which the csri necessarily occupy the street. Ton may depend upon my cordial oo operation and aid In supporting yon in every effort to enforce the laws and ordi nances, notwithstanding I am quite aware that this, and similar complaints made to the Corporation Attorney are prompted solely by unworthy? sometimea by malicious mo tives ? part of a syitem devised to drive this road eff the island, and which from present appearances will undoubtedly be successful.

In consequence of a complaint made on Tuesday agftinst the Croton line of stages, to the effect that they were permitted to run in streets for which they were not licensed, some of the managers appeared before the Mayor yesterday morning, and requested a hearing before his Honor, which will be granted to them this mora ine, at 10 o'clock.

She affidavit ot J. 0. Moylan, published in your journal, and containing chargei against me, as therein related are untrue. I arretted in James street ons of a party who were encased in a puii'litta encounter. On reechint the corner of Chatham and Roosevelt streets, Mr. Moylan interfered and encouraged my prisoner la his leaiatance to arrest? Mr. Moylan, aoeordiag to hla own statement, not having seen tbe commencement of the affsir. 1 used no more violence to my priaoner than was absolutely necessary. Be struck and staked mo several times, and I am now suffering from a kick which 1 then received. The affair was in open day light, and In the presence of a largo number of persons, many of whom will justify my acts, and who consider tbe interference of J. O. Moylan as highly unwarrantable. I also deny using any profane language on the oooasion. I com ider the arrest of Moylaa Justifiable, as his conduct and language were oalonlated to eieite disorder; but the good sense of tkose present, and the Justness of my acts, earned bis language sad coaduet to be of no effect, except as regarding my prisoner, who was thus encouraged to farther resistsnee. Two persons piesent gave their assistance. He slso states that oflleer Mo. 100 was inactive. It was not so. neither did Justice Connolly condomn my oonduet; but be reprimanded tbe reporter. Tbe action of Mr. Moylan is commendable In one particular? the giving ot publicity to the affair, and thus, on his own statement, endeavoring to iifluence public opinion against a policeman who has been unfortunate enough to cross the path of Mr. Moylan.

Mr. Gabrisoh then laid be was almost totally at va riance with the slaveholders, bnt in one thing he iinel with them, that is, >n the assertion of the Rich mond Examiner j that the question of slavery li the moat vital and Important question In the country. He m dorted this statement at true in every particular, Then It but one iat ue before the nation, and that tends either to the salvation or overthrow of the republlo Than ia Bo peace to the slaveholder, and there shall be none. (App>&?e ) the year 1829 he (Mr. G.) went front the old Bay State td city of Beltimor*, io edit ha anti slavei y journal, with the dea'gn of helping ta liberate 2,000,000 slaves: but little, did be tninh then, that it was not only the liberty of the blaok man he had gone to plead for, bat that he alee went to plead for the liberties of the nation and of the world. He went there an Amerioan citizen,. protected, aa ha thought, by the flag of his country. So he verily sup posed, and therefore his wan a work of constftnttoaml philanthropy. In all this, however, he found he wm en tirely mistaken. He now aaw not only black mea, bat all mankind, embraced In tbla question, either dirwotly er indirectly. He might have thought that he stood hero, having a right tto speak where and aa ho pleased; but they all knew that as for himself there was no country he could call bis own. In two-thirds of this land ha vinid (inly present himself in peril of his life, and aB because h* h*4 endeavored to do all he could to serva the land of his birth. (Applause. ) Now he was an outlaw. For him there was no constitution, no Union,no law. Ba case was singular only because other men had n?t bona their testimony against this "sum of all villanles ' for tba moment eny man calls m quae t Ion the dlvinty of alntr <ry, he will find bo cannot safely travel in the Southern portion of the country; and so he was for so much aa outlaw. He would now give eome documentary evidenoa as to tbe treatment of abolitionists in tbe South. Tba first he would read wa a from the writing of the Rev. Mr. Brownlow, of Tennessee, advising to ride on a rail, tar and feather any divine er other who would speak a ward in favor of abclitionfem. Not long ago, another aaaa had to fly for hit life from Jackson, Mississippi, beeausa he had written a letter to a friend la New Qampahiro? kit own State? wbieh letter, accidental! y or designedly, was opened in the 1'oat Office, and wan round to oontaun hie sentiments on alavery. The writer aaid therein, ha had respect and sympathy for Southern slave holders, bred to the Inrtitution, but that for Northern men wha wculd uphold the syatem, be had nothing but ooatemyt. Mr. G. read what tbe editor of the Mistiuipfitm had written on the subject, advising this schoolmaster being lynched wherever in the Southern country he caa ba found. Where? aaked Mr. Garrison? is the flag whiah protects us? He had begun the enterprise with the ex clusive design of emancipating black men, not thinking it would be necessary to make any efTorts on behalf ft ' white people; yet there is at this moment a white woaMa claimed as a slave in one of the courts of New Orleaaa. The day has gone by for any distinction on the gronad aT color; therefore they were all Interested In the matter. No cne could say that himself or his wife or ohildroa were safe. Slavery cares nothing for anybody's com plexion.
