The most interesting topis in Madrid at present is tto agitation caused by tto conspiracies discovered within thtes last few days ia this Court and at other points of the Peninsula. On the 22d ef May tho govern moat received tho news that two completes ot infantry, stationed in Ssrsgoeen, with n regiment of cavalry of tho (tne place, hod revolted and loft that city, seeking tto rood to Colatoynd, where some of tho people hod already pronounced, (evidently o concerted movement) crying ? Viva la religion!"-" Death to tto beretlcs!" ?< Vivo Carloe eoeto 1" Before continuing it i? proper to state that oily one officer ww with tho infantry, and one?iomo say two?with the cavalry, none of tto rest having had anything to do with tto affair. This newe produced a groat sensation hero amongst tho people, la the government and In tho Cortes, so much so that tto Ministry hastened to declare under martial law-that Is to my, subjecting ell criminals to tto military tribu nal?tto districts ef tho captalne-generals of Jfavarre, Burgee aad Arragon, and immediately eeked the Cortes for authority to suspend tho guarantee# of the now con stitution, and to sappress any journal which might in any way favor tho cause of the new Pretender, aad at taok that ef liberty end the throne of Isabel IL The discueiion of this vote of confidence has been oon I tinned since then np to yesterday. The ultra " pro greieistas" and the democratic fraction have opposed it, ae eefitrary to tto liberal principles which they prefrns, tho '? moderadee," ae uncalled for and excessive. How ever, yisterdny it passed by a vote of 124 to 49. I In Madrid a vast conspiracy has been discovered, e si lently a ramification ot tho movement in Saragosae, and ' en the night ef the 28th raeny arrests were mode, gene rally officers en half pay, formerly known as C*rHiU; whom the silly and rascally ' modsrados" had allowed te re enter the army, in order to create partisans for themselves against the liberal# and '< progressistej." Also many gsntry of the cassock were ?e?ied?priests, curatte, aJ i*cri?ta?i: amongst thopriiftf, ckaplains ef the Palace, and othere of tto same ereed. The gov ernment fer this reason is right to invest itmlf with ' extraordinary powers, in order to be able to remove and banish, frem ene part ef the Peninenle to any other, eM | these who are attacking it and tto constitution which !i ft* Is net strange that amongst th# faction in Anjffj ?for the most part country peeple?the cries of Death to th? heretics,''?'Long live the religion,'' should be heard; en theeontmry. it ta very natural. These words, the as criss, are put in their months by tha clergy. The Bpanlst clergy are eminently stupid, P^vSWSO and faro Clous, and will never acquiesce in laws which deprive tlMm of property, that of tho moans to sapport term selves I- idleness and vice. Tto "modermfoe" petted the clergy toe much, in order to propitiate them la their favorapinst the Iprogreselstno,*' not tblnktog or forgetting that, not keeping their wings ojoseclipped, they would again soar end fly out la favor of despo Jam. This elsrgy is a rempeatllon, which must b# chicked; if not, It will tear ns to plecsa. Amougrttheirvain re courses te excite th# multitude against ^slew of re lease from mortmain, tbey even pretended that a eruei fix, er Christ smcified, in the church of the exUsc. oruer ef KraocUcans had sweated blood, opeeedlts mouth and eyes, and performed venous ottor PMts of this nature. Women rushed shrieking from the church, crying cut tkis nonsense; the neighborhood wee aroused, and the authorities obliged to take the matter ia hand, and arrest the authors of this imbecile attempt. With respeet to tho military exMdlttoM agalnnt the rebels, nothing decisive has aa yot transpired. It is true that some of those revolted in Arregon?probably on Ikeir way to join the rebel cavahry^-tove toon touUn, and many priseneis have been token, ether parties dispersed, &i , hut it is not less true that when one is broken op another appears?that Its government having to concentrate numerous frrees in Arragon may flnl its*if menaced in other provinces, and that to toe midst of these efforts to preserve public or lor it if forced to leave unattended other and imperious wante of the administration. . , . , , In tto meanwhilo, the questions of the force! so I patory lean and the sale of church lands, as., are ? a Ivied' nehedy thicks of anything but Carlists?he p .t> lic to fear tbem. and the government to pursue tostn Tho national militia is increasing every day. and this fores, which assisted to well to consolidate the const'tu tlon. now wills with great enthusiasm to defeat the ("rh' puhlie funds have sece down considerably, and although the remainisg jrovineM of Spato are Itor the present tranquil, there exist fears the. the spare or 3v r.go it may take to other parts, and raise a flame diffi cun to txtUguiBb 8ucb is thi ititi Oe iht country, ?mittiaf dtuila, wbieh w#mld c?t y#a. ^ THE WAR.

I IMPORTANT MOVEMENT OP THE RUSSIANS IN GERMANY. *. ANOTHER NOTE?POLITICAL CHECKS OF NAPOLEON ? CHANCES OF POLAND?PROBABLE ANNOYANCE OF NIC TEAL VESSELS IN TBI NORTH SKA PORTS [Parte (June 1) correspondence of tbe London Tines.] In n former letter I alluded to the intrigues carried on throughout tbe whole extent of Germany in the interest of R attia, and the efforts made by Prussia to bring about an armed neutrality of the whole of the Stat!* o the confederation. Besides the note of II de Neseelrode I understand that inatructione in the form of a memoir ? have been drawn up with tvat object at St. Petersburg The first part only emanates from tbo Chanosxy of M de Nesselrode; hat there are passages and arguments which must hare been added efneo, as they are founded on facts that are of rwooat occurrence, and those parte are attributed to a person of French origin, of conside rable talent, but ef email political probity. My inform ant does not say whether the memoiro has been address ed to tbo yarioue Cabinet* as a piece a ooruulter, or whs ther it has been Intended exclusively for the Russian agents as a repertory of arguments and reasonings ready at hand to ho used In support of the question of the armed neutrality whleh they are charged with ad vocating nt tbe different courts. The memoire com mences with n long development of the thoaia that the coneeitiens made fey RntaU In tbo Vienna Conference* on tbe first and second points, give coin piste satisfaction to Caiman interests, and leave them no good reason for interfering in the war, and of associating themselves with whet it term* the unjust crusade of the Western Posers. It next touches on tbo last ahanges which have taken p!aoe In the administration of France, and draws tbe necessary ?eneequeace from them. The re tirement of M. Drouyn de l'Huys, the nomination of M?. de WelowsU and Pereigny, the formation of a foreign le gion, the Polish demonstrations, he., are all presented as a sezies of facts whleh are intimately connected one with the other, and which seem to be the result of political influences far different from those whieh pro vail* 1 pre viously. It appears that, at first, no great importune* was attached to these modifications. Suddenly, how ever, the question became much mors important? it became ef European interest? and the change of persons in the political and military direction of the struggle new go ng on assumed vast proportions. The name of Poland is put forward; an appeal is male to nationalities: rebels ere enrolled as soldiers; and to this are sdoed the manifestations, and the Caartorisky ad diets is followed by the letter of General Ryblnsky. And who, it asks, ean bo deeeived as to the meaning of the letter of tbe ex-General-ln Chief of the Polish army in 1831? It was evidently ooncerted between the Chief of tile French government and the General; its eipressiou* were veleoted with ears, sad the effect it was likely to produce wee calculated beforehand. Moreover, tbe Chief ef tbe F/ea&h government, by inserting that letter in his oflloisl organ imparted to it an antheotic charac ter, a value of a political kind. Poland cads to her aid the French < mplre and the French empire call* on Po land. There is, therefore, a latent eontrset, an Implicit alliance. It ie. In po'nt of fact, an intimation to Russia that the French empire propose* to reconstitute, as an independent. State, the Grand Duchy of Warsaw?it is an intimation to Prussia end Anstr.a that the natural de pendents of the Grand Dnehy bear tbe geographical ap pel.ation cf Bushy of Poeon and Provln:* of Ucdlicla. The French Emperor, proving himself impotent in the Crimea, peeks another battle-field, and a powerful lever against Russia, with which he is at war. against the hesitations of Austria, and agalnet the uowifingaess of Prussia?he thinks be baa found it In Poland, whieh is tbe ever ready instrument of rebellion, and whloh alooc Events some chance of sneeess. Even though the French perir did not resolve to make use of It, his position would force htm to do so. Must not every government partake ef the nature of its origin? In preface of tbe elements of resistance, whleh may endanger hie exist ence, the elective Emperor wlQ net hesi'&le to adopt a revolutionary policy again*: the hereditary emperors; and this in particular afaooid ho taken into careful oon ?ideret en at Vienna, at Berlin, and In all the legitimate Courts.

Prussia. The intention of railing those provinces is openly avowed, and the language of the Journals of lord Palmerston leaves no doubt on the subject; have they not audaciously thrown in the face of the Vienna and Berlin Cabinet s the Polish and Hungarian netles nii'iet? Has it eot bcrn said that England and France had ampl* materials to revise tbe map of Europe, aod that so on* should he surprised to so* toeoe made use o*.

RIGHTS OF NEUTRAL VE99ELS IN THE BAL TIC PORTS. In the British Boon of I-ordi, on Jan* 4th, th* Esrl of Awnem.* sail ho wished to uk hor litjulj'i govern m?mt whether they hid any objtction to at*to tho exact words whieh Ctftaln Watson, of tbs ImperlvuM, ad drrssod to th* authorities of Tort Battle in (denouncing th* hlookad* of that port on the 28th of April of this year; sad also to ask wh*th?r thoy thought tbs Ru'slan government were warranted in tha assertion which thoy were supposed to hay* made, that the government of Engl and bad now r*noano*d tho principle adopted a tmt ago, that the flag covered the cargo? Ho fullv antici pated what the answer would be, and th* explanations whieh ho should receive from the government. He as snnied, as a matter of eourso, that 1h* answer would be .bat the government did adhere to the precise terms of the Order in Council, dated the 16th of April,185t, waiv ing the right of selling enemies' property in neutral ves icle, unless It was contraband of war. Although hs anticipatsd that her Majesty's government would glvs such assurances as would be satisfactory to the neutral Powers he thought it was also ad visa bis the neutral Powers should understand that ths.-e was in that boaae a usailv unanimous? if not un entirely unanimous ? opinion on the subject. When, about a fortnight ago, he bad moved certain resolutions, with the obtfsct of putting an end to trade with Rustic, he had been very much astonished to hear three members of her Majesty's government?the President of th* Board of Trade, the Lord President of th* Council, and thadJnder Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs?attribute to him a with to enforce the right of blockade. He waa utterly astonish *d when be heard such a desire imputed to him, and he thought that in th* hurry of debate he might haws Mid what he did not mean to eay; hnt in the first newspa per he sew the next morning, be found the words be used were, "Neutral flags should make ueutral cargoes;" and the resolutions he had proposed did not contemplate dir*etly or Indirectly any interference whetever with neutral Power*. A* the statement he was then making would probably flad its way to the public, and would coma to tha kaowladga of tte neutral Powers, be might observe that he believed he spoke the unanimous?or the almost enaniasous? opinion of their loruahipt, when he said that they thought the Americana were perfectly justified in e a rning that a neutral flag should protect a neutral cargo; and lie wee only at iseue with her Majes ty's government on this question, because they bad done uDgraC'Onsly and unwillingly what he thought they ought to have don* rea-lily and unhesitatingly. He trusted, now that two great Powers ef Europe had ex pressed their intention on the subject in an unequivocal manner, that the course tbey had resolved to adopt would henceforth become part and paroel of the law of nations. In consequence of the intention which had been attributed to him by members of bar Majesty'a go vernmcmt, a State paper which had been issued by the Russian government, and which purported to come from tfe* office of K. de Nees strode, gave an ioacsnrat* rspre te station of the proposition he had submitted to their lordships, smd he (Lord Albemarle) thought it was desi rable that on a subject of so much importance a clear endrrstandlng should be established. Karl ft raxvills said, tho noble earl had on this ooct rion not observed his usual courtesy In giving notice of the qneaticn ha bad jnat put, bnt he bad the satis fa? lien of being able to In orm the noble earl that there had fx en nothing In th* conduct or statements of Cap* tin Watson or bib lieutenants to warrant the reprasenUt ?o ef tho Russian government. No such question as they represented had been nut and oettainly no such answer ss they mentioned bad been given. Th* Earl of Hasa wnv, who woe very imperfectly beard, Mid, the first lieutenant of o British ah>p of war went Into Pert Baltic to ascertain what ahtpi were actual ly loaded, in order that those only whieh were loaded at ihe time might be permitted to ieav* with their cargo**, and thot no additional goods might b* taksn on bsard Tn* lieutenant wont win the governor over xbe port; he foued only fbm vessels landed; ho never Inquired te whom th?y belonged; he said that as they were loaded thoy might Imv* th* port, bnt that no other vessel* could depart after that date. The beaten an t was tboa asked whether four Prussian Ashing vessels might go ?ut, end he replied that as there was a* intention to If filet Injury upon the owners of sash small verve la, they might be allowed to leave.

THE PASSENGER TRADE AT HONG KONG - HOW CHINESE ARE CARRIED OFF. [From North Ctina Hsrald, March 16.] It is now tome months aince wo drew attention to the manner in which the passenger trade la cenluotsd at thia port, suggesting a few simple regulatlona which seemed likely to haneflt both the emigrant# and those engaged in shipping theaa, or at leaat anch shippers ae conduct their huaintta with falrnsas and good faith. Wo hare reaaon to think that thoao heat informed on the anbject concur in tho views referred to, and their cogency baa not been teeeened by subsequent occur rences. Take, for Inetance, the voyag*, or attempted voyage, of tho Science, and her condition on rotnrniag to por!, after nearly one hundred days' absence. It is true, the vessel being a foreign one, (American, we beli ve,) no regulations in force here could have prevented her taking in paeeengers at Macao, or enferoe compensation to the helpleee men on board on her return; bat one of oar objects was to show tho advantage of Chinese taking passages at Hong Kong under proper guarantees. We have heard that the Morrison (also American,) which salfed hence f?r Oalifornla on the 20tb January, reteivrd on board in the Ly ju moon paasago seme t V> hundred passengers over her complement, and having pnt into Manilla in dietieee, has been there condemned^ Her p strangers, it appear*, ere to bo sent back to Dong Kong, and of conree set adrift totally destitute. The owners of the ship were on board when ehe left this harbor; and seeing these gentlemen received fall pas sage money here, and will no doubt receive full Insu rance on the ablp, and probably freight, it is not too mnch to ray that some one should be boll responsible for the amount paid for paasago in Hong Kong. But as there is no provision of tho sort to be found in oar crlonisl regulations, the money la safe lathe pock ets of the lucky owners aforesaid, which mast maks tho Morrison's trip for Oool ss a very song one indeed, and one worth repeating. Wo warned oar officials that such thtsgs might bo especisd, but feel no sat la faction at tho ?sry literal fulfilment of ear predictions. The eases of the Science and Morrison are had eaenrlr, bat. ?? operations, they are quite thrawn In tho abide by the more reoeat one of the Margaret. This vessel, a British one, wo are sorry to say, owned and commanded by a men named White, waa chartered by tho worthy owner 1e Chinese, to oarry passengers hence to Port Phillip. She waa fitted out for tho voyage, and between fourteen and fifteen thousand dollar* war* paid to Whit* ae passage money. It is doubtful if tho vessel waa worth ba:f that amount. rndor a provision of the Passengers' Act adopted at Hong Kong, vessel* ar* permitted to carry only on* pas senger for every two tone register White therefore een.-inded to torsive his passengers off IJnMn, and pro fes'ed to atari (or that aachovags on the 4th instant Tie passengers followed, and alter waiting throe days, vainly looking for the vesetl, returned to Hong Kong. Messengers were despatched to Meean in the hep* that tha vessel might ho found there; but (boy eould neither tea n< r bear of ber: and so some three hundred people ?re utterly rninsd, to say nothing of tho loss to the un fortunate charterers Our inlers are fend onengh sf meddling with baataers tbat we is bsttsr left alone?stringent la trifles, and playing at law-making. Now they have an opportunity of delay a real service, by simply adopting the plan of responsibility suggested by us whom tha subject was under discussion four months ago.

At thia moment many Chins** are tho charterers of vassals.

At a quarter past ten the frigate was observed to drift, when th* second anchor was immediately dropped.
