Parliament had adjourned for the Easter holy
days. the House of Commons to the 17th, and
the House of Lords to the 2 lat. Si r R o b ert
Peel gave notice that the Irish coercion bill will
be taken up again on the 17th, and on the_Mon
the corn importation bill.
The debates in Parliament seem to have been
con fi n ed to Irish and railway affairs. These
top i cs also engross the atttention of the journals.
It haring oeen charged that the protectionists
had made an agreement with Sir Robert Peel to

House denied positively that any such agree

Orisons —The article in the last number of
the Quarterly Review', on the subject of Ore-
E on, is beginning to attract attention, now that
the hubbub arising out of the Indian victories,
Is fast subsiding. The gist of the article is to
promote a compromise, and the reviewer would
he content with the fortymuth parallel. We
have contended from the first that any fair set
tlement of the dispute would be hailed with avi
dity by the English people, in order to avoid
the horrible consequences which an appeal to
force would produce ; and the semi-official char
acter (lithe article to which we allude, embody
ing the feelings oldie Conservative party on the
subject is confirmatory ofour views.
The arrival at Havre with New York papers
to the 18th tilt, brings the debates in Congress,
this subject, three weeks later than the pre
vious packet. The ultra Oregon men appear
in be losing ground, and the general feeling of
the country as well as of Congress, leaves little
to apprehend now for belligerent result. Indeed,
e is generally believed here that the dispute is
nasally settled. W e sincerely hope that this
is not an asNumption, but a fact.--ifilmer

COMMERCIAL.—Commercial matters wear an
improved aspect. Affairs are sufficiently- bad ;
but comparatively speaking, not 51) much so as
they were a week ago. The decision of Path

with sunshine and a balmy atmosphere. Physi
cal causes always exercise their influence in
coking or depressing the animal spirits ; and a
clouded sky has always been found inimical to
business An our changeable climate these cau
ses must he taken for what they are worth—
uecessard v transitive, and often illusory.

liberating goads /tali bond on payment of the
reduced duties. During the present week the
receipts at the custom house have been large—
; tolerable moot that the commercial would think
the tariff will ultimately find its way to the sta
tute book.
There has been a some what serious failure
this week in Liverpool, and rumors touching the
flahility of other firms abound. The firm, in
question, Messrs. Carne and Telo. are extensive
ineichants in the Russian trade. Their liabilities
are said to exceed half a million of dollars.—
One of the joint stock banks, which suffered se
nously by a large fallute some six weeks ago,
are the unlucky creditors of the house to a con
siderable amount.
The American provision trade has partaken
of the'factliiies which the Treasury mder affords.
Considerable supplies of beef and provisions
have heen released from bond under the .low du

'I he revenue returns . to the sth of April ex
hibit some curious results. This is the end of
the financial year. The quarter's revenue, ow
ing; to the general stagnation of trade, shows a
deficiency in the customs of half a million, in the
excise of more than a quarter of a million.—
The year's deficiency in the customs amounts
to nearly two millions and a half, and upwards
of ZOO.OOO in the excise. But the stamps
have increased 4400,000, the Post Office 190-
The total ordinary revenue leaves a decrease
of something more than two millions. The
most gratifying feature in the return is the con
tinued increase in the Post Office. Thus far
the penny postage has worked admirably. The
humbler classes, especially, have not been slow
to take advantage of its economy. .
ln'the poorer distries of London. and most of
the large towns, the increase of letters has ex
ceeded those of the more business and aristocrat
ic districts. Nevertheless, thanks to the in
come tax, there is a clear surplus of two mil
lions and a half above the expenditure.
The falling off on the year's income is to be
attributed to the remission of taxation during
the previous year. Since the last budget. taxes
to the emelt of three millions and a quarter have
been taken off articles iibich entered largely in
to the consumption of the manufacturers and the
business classes.
--The British corn trade continues dull, and
prices are Bs. lower than at the beginning of the
Yea - r. A variety of causes will account for the
stagnation. The uncertainty which exists about
the future is a main element, and - no wonder
when it is reflected that the passing of the corn
bill before Parliament will at once reduce the du
ty from 183. to 4s. Again, the mildness of the
*ember has checked the demand for bread stuffs.
Low temperature always increases the con
loeoption of food. And finally, the growth o

the use of wheaten bread. These combined
causes have kert down the price of flour, and
will continue to depress the market until all un
certainty about the future ceases.
We have noticed, on more than one occasion
recently, the high estimation in which Indian
corn. as 90 article of food, has risen on this side
of the Atlantic. Sir Robert Peel, on Wednes
day evening, corroborated our statement. In
Ireland it is fast superseding the watery potato,
and the Premier expressed a praiseworthy feel
ing of pride at finding the people of that country
referring what he justly styles a better and
',pore generous description of food."
SPAIN.— We have received, by extraordinary
express, Intel igence from Madrid, to the 4th inst.
I announcing that Gen. Nevares had resigned. and
that his resignation had been accepted by the
M. Isturitz is President of the Council and
Minister of Foreign Affairs. M. Armero, Min
ister of Merine. M. Egana remains as Minister
of Justice. M. Mon is in the Fannance.
IRELAND Scartmv.r—Ths price of potatoes
in Dublin has now risen to 9d. a stone for good
ones, and 63 for very indifferent ones. This
is an advance of at least a hundred per cent,
on the prices of last year, and yet the protec
tionist papers in Dublin have the heartless ef
frontery to assert that there is no scarcity, and
that provisions of all kinds were never more
plentiful or more cheap than at this season of the
year." . .
EIHORATHIN.—The - tide of - emigration to
America from Ireland his set in earlier than us
ual this year. The quays at Cork are crowded
to inconvenience with passengers and their
luggage. Already one vessel has sailed with a
lull complement of passengers, and twenty-three
others, with nearly four thousand-emigrants are
preparing at that port for sea.
SOUTH AFRlCA.—lmportant inteligeuce from
the Cape of Good hope had been received—
Feb. 10—that an attack upon Graham's Town
was meditated by the Kafiri. The inhabitants
of the Colony were in great consternation, and
the most alarming rumors were in circulation.
At the latest date, however, no attack had been
made, and it was believed that the difficulties
with the Kafiri were in train for arrangement.
Yet, treachery was suspected, and the alarm bad
not entirely subsided.
A CITRIOSITY.—The Tom Cringle, loaded
with guano, from lehaboe, arrived at Swaazea
in the early part of the week, after a protracted
voyage. Since her arrival in port, this fine ves
sel has attracted a considerable attention, in con
sequence of having on board a copper-colored
Ichahne Chief, who was brought frln one of
the contiguous Islands. He is a person of good
features, of rather diminutive stature, standing
about 5 feet high, with tolerably proportionate
limbs, with the exception of his feet, which are
remarkably small. When taken he was in state
perfect nudity ; a habit to which he clings with
great tenacity. By great efforts, however, he
has been prevailed upon to wear a few light gar
ments; he appears to possess an amiable disposi
tion, hut he is remarkable for his timidity.—
When even the smallest species of the canine
race invades the ship's deck,.he makes a fear
ful noise, and carts below with the most aston
ishing rapidity, where he will remain for some
hours amusing himself with any thing produ
cing aitinkling sound, Hid inseparable coo
panion are two clubs, which he seems to prize
greafiy. and handles them with great dexterity.
He ( seems to entertain great affection for the
ship's crew, especial) , the captain, whom he
follows like a faithful dog. In acquinng a
knowledge of the English language he has made
hut slow progress ; one or two words is the most
he can articulate. As soon as the vessel is rea
dy he will betaken back to his native soil, when,
no doubt he will astonish his kindred with the
accounts of his European expedition.—ff elsh
Oua ARTISTS ABROAD.—A communication
in the Cincinnati Atlas states that Mr. Power.
the seulptor, now in Florence. is engaged on
the bust of the Grand Duchess, who is said to
he a beautiful and queen-like woman. This
is the first honor of the kind conferred on a
foreign artist. For this engagement he is in
debted to Prince Demidorf, of whose lady he
made a bust a year since. The latter is a
daughter of Jerome Bonaparte.
Kellogg is . winning golden opinions in Italy,
as a painter. He is now engaged on an origi
nal picture of a Turkish lady in a bathing
room, and report speaks highly of its merits.
Powell is still at Rome. A gentleman.
recently from Italy, states that he is highly
esteemed for his modesty and gentlemanly
deportment—that he has greatly improved in
'his style of painting, and is considered as an
artist of great promise.
EMIGRATION TO Ottkoow.—The Washinton
IJnion has been permitted to make an extract
from a letter writen by Gen. C. C. Van Horn,
a distinguished cittizen of Northern Illinois,
dated March 25. 1846 •
• We had several team■ pass here yester
day. on their way to Oregon. They had cows
yoked to draw their loads. instead of oxen.
In all, we have had forty teams pass here.
and they tell us more are on the road. They
were from Ohio, Michigan and Indiana. Know
ing the deep interest I have manifested in the set
dement of Oregon. and the extension of the
American laws over it. they all give me a call ;
and I find every man of them resolute, and
fully determined to protect hinvielf in his coun
try abandons him in his new home and drives
him to this alternative. Not a man will ever
consent to be a British subject."
HEALTH or Gov. Dona.—We entertained
the hope during the cold season, that when
warmer weather approached, we should be
able to announce some improvement in the
health of this distinguished champion of equal
rights. Our hopes have not been realized ;
and we are pained now to say that for the last
six weeks or two months, he has been getting
more feeble. His confinement within the damp
walls of the Algerine dungeon to which he was
sentenced for life by his coward persecutors.
has had the effect to almost entirely break down
his constitution and scatter di through
every part of his system. He rides out occa
sionally. of an afternoon, but otherwise is not
able to leave his borne.—Providence Gazelle.
Mut RopnEß Ceuotrr.—A man named Wm
Vaughan has been arrested at Memphis, Tenn..
charged. with having robbed the U. S. mad at
various times, between Memphis. Tenn.. and
Huntsville. Alabama. in surus, it is supposed.
of not less than 510.000 in all. It is computed
that not less than 2.000 letters have been ab
stracted from the mail bags, by means of false
keys. and Vaughan had in his pocket. when
arrested. three keys which fitted each of the
three patent mail locks. He is supposed to
hare numerous accomplices.
SMOULAR FATALITY.—k couple of weeks
since, a man named Tichenor. who had long
resided in Owsley county, Ky., was visited
by his son from an adjoining neighborhood,one
day last week and that he was suddenly taken
ill by some unknown disease, attended with
great suffering. He expired in a few hours.
The son was scarcely buried before the father
was taken sick with the same disease, and died
in about the same length of time from the at
tack. An only daughter of Mr. Tichenor, a
beautiful and amiable young lady. the very
picture of health, was also hurried to eternity
by the same calamity. in less than %bitty-six
hours from the time she was taken. They all
euffered intensely. The sudden disease of the
family had created alarm in the county.—Bal.
THE BRIDO6S.—The Harrisburg Reporter
of the 28th save:--The Cumberland Valley
Railroad Company have commenced, in right
good earnest, rebuilding their bridge at this
place. Very nearly all the piers between the
town and the island have been repaired, and
the wood work already extended as far as the
first pier. A large number of hands are at
work, and it is expected it will be ready (or
crossing by the first of October.
The Harrisburg Bridge Company are also
busily engaged in putting up machinery for ex
tending the rope across to the island. for a
ferry. They have some hope, we believe, of
succeeding by Wednesday next. We bear
nothing said of rebuilding their bridge.
VERY KlND.—Shortly after tt was fully
known that Jams K. Polk was elected Presi
dent of the United States, says the West
Chester Jefiersonian, the Whigs very magnan
imously agreed that the country might get
along if it could without being totally ruined.
although they positively refused to agree to
anything of the kind before. Now, however,
they give us full notice, that if Congress passes
the Sub-treasury bill, that it must go to smash
—there can be no salvation for it—for they'll
never agree to let it do anything else. Really
this is awful—terrible ! Won't you, Messrs.
Whigs. give us the benefit of the "notice," one
year only to make up our final accounts.
HEAVY FORGIERIES.IV ithin a week past for
geries to an amount exceeding twenty thousand
dollars were discovered in Philadelphia. The
forgers are said to be members of a firm of man
ufacturers in the western part of the city, do
ing a very heavy business, and standing well
before the community ;and the gentleman, Mr.
Jos. Flemming. whose name has been unlaw
fully used, is also a manufacturer to a large ex
tent. The forgeries were discovered by the
appearance of two setts of notes of the same
dates. equal amounts. &c., at one of the Banks.
One of these setts of notes was genuine, the
other forged. The losses will fall principally
on the the brokers or note timers.

DIPCHARGED.-E. R. C. Judson, the indi

some weeks since—was discharged from the
jail of that city on the 16th inst., amf immedi

seized by a mob, who attempted to hang him.

says Nothing will be done in relation to the

Nor will Mr. Parkekeven then take the respon

would be proper under the peculiar circumstan
ces of the case.
DivoncEs.—About sixty divorces have been
granted or "decreed" by the Legislature of
our State this session. The tax upon each is
twenty dollars, passed to prevent the frequency
of applicaton ; but which appears to have had
an entirely contrary effect. fur the number
granted and the applications are both more
numerous this session than usual.
MARRIAGE.—Two deaf mutes were married
on Monday morning, by the Rev. Mr. Carey,
at the Deaf and Dumb Asylum. in New York.

Fps Wsastwo.—We dislike very much to see
a paper constantly punching its patrons in the short
ribs, and giving them hints that they are very much
in arrearages. it is unpleasant for subscribers, and
particularly unpleasant for printers. Consequently,
we seldom do it, although there are some of our
subscribers-from six to two years in arrears. We
are somewhat independent about it, for we believe
we are fairly entitled to our pay, and that we should
take proper methods to have it forthcoming. if any
men think we entertain a different opinion, they
will find themselves much mistaken. We have
heretofore taken anything and everything from oar
subscribers—cash or country produce—and given
them ample time and opportunity to cart it to us.
We have waited on soma of them long enough to
have the money. May Court will afford our delin
quent subscribers an excellent opportunity to seta e.
up. Soon after that time, the accounts previous to"
the commencement of the present firm will be put
in a magistrate's bands for immediate collection,
and then nothing but cash will answer. This course
has become necessary, and would before this have
been adopted, but for absence of the former editor.
Those who hive delayed until Spring, are desired
to take particular notice.
