The Royal Mali Steamship America, CapUin Lang, ar Xtved at this port at 8 o'closk this morning. Her dates froa Liverpool are to the afternoon of Sat urday, the 12th iast , one weoi later th'.n rejeived by the Baltic at New York. The America nailed for Boston at 10 o'clesit. Weather Use. B'-ie will be doe at Boston oa Friday n'ght, so that her mails will doubtless reach New York oa Satur day afternoon. 'The steamship Union failed from Southampton on the 9th Inst for Now York, with nlnaty ptssengsrs. The week'* budget of news it Tiry meagre, affording HO event of importance. Affairs before 8?baetopol were in much the same posi tion as at the departure of the Baltic, although some trivial successes for the Allies have, in tli9 Interim, been reccrded. The tone of public sentiment apmata J to have resolved Itself into the conviction that thn war must be a pro tracted ore, an'l wltlout hope of assistanse from Aus tria. M. Dronyn de I'Huys, the French Minister of War, had resigned, from an unwillingness to protract the war, fcnd Count Walewsk i, the Trench Airnas- i lor at London, 2ms been appointed hi* successor, All the documeats in regard to the Austrian Confer ence had been Uid before the British Parliament. Redschid Paeba had be?n superceded as Grand Vizier 1>f Mahomet Pacba Pianor), who attempted to assassinate the Emperor Napoleon, had been condemned to death. The em'grant ship John, from Plymouth, bound to Qie hec, was wrecked, and a number of lives were lost. In a commeicial view the news by th's arrival, so far fts regards cotton, at least, is highly important. The transactions in that staple continued to be oa a very ex* ttuive scale, the week's business footing up over to M hundred }boqsan4 bales, of which V?out a moiety ?as takey by speculators. The quotations generally -?how an advance of one farthing over the prices current ?t the departure of the Baltic. In Breadstuff* there had been little or no change, ttuept in corn, which was a trifle higher. Provisions generally were steady, at former rates. The London money maiket continued very easy, and Mniols closed at 88\. ^Several extensive failures in commercial circles in Liverpool were spoken ot privately, just prior to the departure of the America, but no names had trans ? fired. THE WAR# AFFAIR'* IN THE CRIMEA. A correspondence from the eamp. April 27, ?xpUiaa the difficulties of th? bat aUtes confidently that the allies advance over the ground bit by bit, and that while the works ao advance there can be ao doubt of Ultimate sueoeaa, provided the Rusaiana in the field are BBftble to force tb? ailiea to raire the alege. Gen. Canrobcrt baa announced that when reinforce ments arrive be will enlarge the circle of his operations, implying that he w.Il attack the Russian field positions. On the 28th of April Canrobert writs* to the Emperor that the English army has recovered its health and effl - Clency, and is on cordial terms with the French. The lateat official advices from Sebaatopol are to May 10. On that day, in the morning, ths Russians male a ?ortie with a larr* hidy ol troopa on tlie allies' right art Tanoe trench, but vrere driven back In-uediately, and a second and similar attempt aharnd the same fate. Nothing could be better than the conduct of the troopi who took part in the affair . Tlie loss of the enemy was ?erioua. Gen. Marmora had arrived with four thousand Sardi nian troops. Procrastination and jealousies are damaging the pro posed scheme of a Turkish contingent commanded by Eagllsh officers o' the Indian army. THE BALTIC SQUADRON. Th* English fleet is working up towirds Gothland as loe permits It is said that France asks permission to ?etahUah a French camp on Swedish territory, and if refused Bomarsund will be oecupiel and fortified by the Allies. Three *hipa left England on the 1( th to blockade the White Sea. THE NEGOTIATIONS. Symptoms increase that the Austrian and Prussian cabinet* aie attempting to effect a general accord among Abe German Plate*. lE.Htors of neml official journals have been invited to favor the movement. The document* of the Vienna Conference, the whole extending to ninety pages, are pirttally republished Ja th# English newspapers, and have excite! much in terest. Palmerston baa evaded answering the question whe ther the confer* nces are or are not finally broken oil; hut it is said, as the accredited representatives of all the Powers, Russia included, continue to reside in Vienna, the eUmeaiti of tbe conference permanently exist, should Russia, or Austria oa behalf of Ruasli make at any time proposals offering a prospect of a settlement. A Russian note, in the form of a circular, addressed to the German States, says that th* Czar, relying on the Continuance of the pollsy hitherto pursued by them, Will adhere to tbe lolution given at the conference* to the two flr*t point* of the guarantee OPINION OF THE BRITISH PRE33. The English pre** admit* that hopes of peace have '?'i and that no assistaae* can be expected from Aui hla, aad but little from the rest of Europe; consequent that Fraace and England mast fight it out. Th > London Time* publishes *n irtlel* expre**iag these ?lewe. Tbe Time* hss also an editorial on be hair of the ferernneat. stating that K Is Impossible to peruse the Official documents of the Vienna Conf*r*nae without see ing that Russia wi?s never la earnest in her pretend ?d desire for peace. Some, however, think differently! and Earl Grey, In tbe Houae of Loids, has given notlc ?fa motion for 21*t in*t., that an addrea* be sent to the Queen, deplct'ng the failure of negotiations, and stating, M the opinion of Psrliament, that the proposals of Ra* ?ia were auet as to afford a fair prospect of concluding a peaee. by which all the original objeita of the war might hare been gained, and by which the allies might have ?attained all the advantages which can b? reasonably de ??anded from Russia. Milner Gibson made a similar ?Votlon in the Route of Commons. THE LATEST WAR NEW3. The French mail has not arrived. The Vienna correspondent of the London TtW. re marks, that as long as no rrvolutiosary elom*nt? are brought into notion, Austria will lMTe Russia to get out t>f her difflrn ties ai she beat can; but if England aid Fraace *houid r* solve to lorm a or pa of refugees, and amploy them c? or near h*r frontier*, the Holy Alliance Would assuredly again be formed > Paris, Miy 11?

An American Merchantman In the Baltic. MUNITIONS OF WAR FOR THE RUSSIANS ? 13 JOHX BULL ASLEEP ? Ibe following is from the London Standard:? A very extraordinary circumstance, reported from a quarter which precludes any doubt as to the truth of the g at*ment, reaches us by letters from St. Petersburg. It appears that a fine American frigate bailt ship recently arrived at a port in tlie Baltic. It was stated that the vessel had on board eight hundred bale* cotton, but the correspondent of our informant Tinted tie f-hip and found in addition to tbe a*>ove, she bsd tiitj thousand rifles and fivs thousand revolvers. Ibe Russian* laugh at our cruisers, and naturally ask, if John Dull has been asleep to have allowed so valuable a prlre to have escaped. The Messrs. C? ? , mer chants ot Boston, were paetengera, and are supposed acted a? supercargoes. We have net been able to as cr;?in if the vessel left America this season, and ha* cut her way through the ice before our fltleg squadron could come up with her. or if ahe reached one of the lower pojta of the Baltic last year, and lay quiet till tie spiiog. We say no more than " What are our Consuls in the United states about, to have permitted such a cargo to leave without apprising our government hereof tbe fact." Other letter* from St. Petersburg s?at? that the vessel baa since left for Koenlgsberg in ballast. Commercial Intelligence* LONDON MONEY MARKET.

Die present mulch oiiginated in opinions of thia kind, , and the owner of Flora Temple believing her fully capable. wi.s induced to select her among many others for the feet; and although una jo ceesful yeaterday, be Uns had no reaeoa to alter bis opinion, and attribute k her defeat soMj to her casting a fere shoe in tbe eighth mile, and cutting her quarter so badly that be wa * compelled to wi'.hiraw her after the twelfth mile. The traci was never in better condition. Early In the morning it hai been accurately measured threa feet from the pole, and It found to be precisely sixteen feet nine iueh'_ ? over a mile in circumference. Ihii would mate a dilertnce of three hundred and thirty fiTe feet in twenty circuits of the track. The afternom was cloudy, with a bite? frcm the louth, which at times blew rath;-- huid? a day very similar to that on which Ti 11 s*4e accomplished hi* great race. This caused considerable (peculation, which seemed to be In favor of time. The betting on the race wan rather con tradictory be'oie .lie start, odds beii.g given both ways, but previous to ysuterday, it was all even. Tfce match w#i ror $5,000, Mr. McMann to produco a Lorse that wooid trot twenty miles to a wagon wituin one hour. As previously stated, Flora Temple was selected. The wagon was built expreaaly for the occasion, and weighed elgh y iour pounds; and t'ae driver, Warren Pcabody, weighed one hundred and forty-sis pound*, mahing a totil of two hundred and thirty pounds. So great was the interest taken in tha race that the attendance was much larg'r than had bean seen at the Centrevlile a nee tha first race between Highland Maid and Ed. Eddy; and yet, to the mortification of the pro prli'or, the receipts were much leaj tun Uny should have teen, aa hundreds obtained admission by ecalrng the fenccs.

I)uriu< the performance the track wan densely crowded, and it required tie utmost exert on on tha part of Sheriff Bojd to kiep back the throng, who we re cintluual'y preening for said to watch tne movements of Flora as the catne up the home atre'.ch. No acciduut, hoaeeer, occurred from this canu>. Between tour and five o'clocH waa the tim.? select??d for the race, and Flora waa brought up on a square trot for the wcr*, which wat- given, an*. taray she went on her doubtlul task. She appeared rathur excited aud bioke up into n rrn several tim?M befom she cast her shoe, which nbe did on the eighth mile, just aa she came to the judteB' stand. Nothing of an unusual nature took place before this accident; but 88 sorn aa it wis discovered, the throng became excited in tha extreme, especially wben it wa:i eoeu that she had cut bnrHelf baoly. iho backers of J lora were then convinced that the race was over that there was no chance of her winning, snd that It would be uu aot of charity to wth e'raw her, as it wa^ really daogerom to have her pro ceed.
