The steorashirTcambrm, Captain Harrison,
from Liverpool, arrived at Boston at 7f o clock
on Friday moriniig. - '
The Cambria loft Liverpool on the 17th
instant, arrived at Halifax on the 28th, anil
left again the same day for this port. She
had passengers from Liverpool to
Boston, and eight from Halifax to Boston,
The commercial news by this arrival is
not very favorable. The cotton market con
tinued dull and depressed, and on some de
scriptions there had been a slight decline.
Thero was no prospect of improvement.
The com market was also dull and prices
were receding. The weather continued fa
vorable - for the growing crops, and conse
quently thero was no speculation in the mar
ket. The reports from the manufacturing
districts of England and Scotland do not im
prove, and trade there continued gloomy and
Mnnev continued abundant. First class
bills now discounted at 3 per cent. The
Bank of England reduced its rate from 4 to
3i per cent. From all parts of Great Britain,
the accounts in relation to the growing crops
are eheerin: in the hiirhest degree. The
weather continued of tho most favorable char,
acter, forcing them forward with great rapidi
ty and luxuriance.
Though the weather has for some time
been, and still continues favorable for the
growing grain crops, expectations as to the
probable result r this year's harvest are cer
tainly not KiiiEiiine. Even wheat, decidedly
the best cron of nnv, is not very favorably
sp:ken of, and nil spring corn and pulse is
believed to have been so much injured by
the drought in May as to render a. good yield
almost impossible. Within tho hist few
days there have been vague reports of the
potatoes showing symptoms of disease, but as
yet we have, we are happy to say, had no
evidence of a character to induce us to be
lieve that there is any foundation to appre
hend a recurrence of the disorder by which
this crop has been visited the last few years.
The private letters from the United States
by the Caledonia nre very discouraging, as
they intimate that tho importations 'for the
fall trade are likely to be very light. The
nomination of General Cass, as the Democratic,
candidate for the Presidency, was calculated
to affect prices unfavorably, from his well
known hostility to England, manifested while
he was in France, and also in the United
States Senate, by his motion to seize the
whole of Oregon. A strong belief, however
prevailed that Gen. Taylor will be success
ful. The unexpected return of Prince Louis Na
poleon for Paris, as well as for the depart
ment of Yonne, the Sarthe, and the lower
Charente, has caused great embarrassment tc
the Government. Having already admitted
three members of the Bonaparte family into
the Assembly, it is difficult to find a decent
pretext for the exclusion of a fourth, who,
though a pretender against the government of
Louis Phillippe, sets himself up now as a
sincere Republican.
The chief subject of discussion in political
circles, and the source of serious alarm to the
Republican parties, is the diffusion of the
(spirit of imperialism throughout the country)
but more especially in the army Several
regiments have shouted "Vive l'Empereur!"
many more have cried J'Vive Louis Napo
leon !" When the name of Louis Napoleon
was announced from the steps of the Hotel
de Ville, the roili.; who were on the place
raised their caps on the tops of their bayon
ets in token of exultation.
Proceedings of the Assembly Speech of M.
P. Bonaparte. The President took the chair
on the 12th instant. After the readiugof the
process verbid, the President said that M
Pierre Bonaparte had asked permission to
M. P. Bonaparte Citizen, I am much agi
tated and annoyed to mount this tribune to
bring before you a name. I only expected
here to be called on to speak on principles.
Thero is a name that has been in every
mouth, that of Prince Louis Napoleon Bona
parte. I am his relation, his friend ; but I
declare here that I am wholly a stranger to
the previous proceeding of my cousin. I am
here a represntative of the people. I should
have despised cerium reports in the journals;
but these reports have become of such a na
ture that a citizen who possesses honor can
no longer keep silence. Whence comes these
reports? I do not know. But what you all
know is, that there exists at this moment par
ties hostile to the Republic. They are com
posed of a feeble minority, and of the least
respectable of the country What then
would be more probable what more natural
than to see such a party make use of this
name. Is that tho reason for chnrging Louis
Bonaparte with the responsibility of their
act i Ou going yesterday evening to the
Minister of the Interior and Prefect of Police,
to speak to them on the subject, the latter
replied to me, "Youi cousin is altogether a
stranger to what has passed, as we believe,
and a fur you your name has not been men.
tinned- 1 was at tho council of the Govern
ment to-day, and 1 can assure you that noth
ing has beeu done against your relative."
Reassured by these words I was astonished
when some of my friends informed me to-day
that a law was intended to be passed against
iny cousin. I now demand of the Govern'
inent an explanation to this.
M. Flocon, Minister of Commerce, objected
tliat the question was not in order.
The order of the day was then called for.
After this, a scene of great interest and ex
citement occurred in the National Assembly,
The order of' the day was a bill opening a
credit of 25,000 francs a mouth for the use of
Government, and 75,000f. for secret service
money. This brought out ail attack on the
Government, by M. Seraises, who declared
the executive power had totally failed in the
necessary energy lor the conduct of public
affairs. T
This attack brought Lamartine) upon the
tribune, and the following scene occurred :
M. Lamartine mounted tho tribune. He
appeared much moved, and looked very pale.
Passing by the question in deliberation, he
applied himself at ence to the defence of the
administration. He explained why and
wherefore the Government had considered it
its duty to proclaim a Republic ; but the Re
public thoy wished was a Republio of order.
M. Lamartine pronounced this word with
emphasis. At this moment he was unable to
conceal his emotion, and was requested to
rest for a moment. When he resumed his
countenance was more downcast than before,
and just then were rumors that shots had
been fired, that an officer of the National
Guard had been seriously wounded. M.
Lamartine himself announced, the deplorable
event, and said that three shots had been
fired at M. C. Thomas, the commander of the
National Guard. (Here the cry was heard of
"Vive l'Empereur Napoleon!" responded to
by cries of "Vive la Republiqnel" "Vive
la Republiqne ! but no procriptions!" cried
M. Larabite. Considerable agitation pre'
vailed in the hall. One of the National
Guard had received a shot in the stomach
and the blood was seen to flow.) I am obli-
ged, said M. Lamartine, with considerable
emotion, to interrupt the sjeech which I pro
posed addressing to the Assembly, in order
to submit a decree which onght immediately
to bo passed in order to stop the movement
at present going on.
- A member : Lot us vote by acclamation
(Cries of "Yes, yes.")
The greatest agitation arose here.
M. Lamartine: I have it here drawn up on
the instant. It declares, considering peace
had been disturbed and civil war had
been commenced, though perhaps invulunta-
rily, by Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, and that
he had already twice made attempts for his
own personnl ambition ; considering that the
Executive Committee could not take the res
ponsibility of the disturbances caused, or the
attempts made now for a similar purpose, de
clares the bill of 1816 ngninst the Bonaparte
family; all remain in force against Louis Na
poleon Bonaparte. (Tremendous applause.)
The whole assembly rose with shouts of "Vive
la Republique !''
This appears to have been regarded as
equivalent to a vote in favor of the decree
for the expulsion of the Bonaparte family;
though the account is by no means clear.
This vote, however, it will be seen by the
next day's proceedings, was in efTect stultifi
ed by a vote to allow Louis Bonaparte tojjike
his seat in the Assembly on certain condi
tions. After several other members had spoken,
for and against the measure, M. Ledru Rol
liu nddressed the Assembly :
M. Ledru Rollin said This question is too
important for the Government to allow the
discussion to pass over without declaring its
A judicial investigation has just commen
ced, and it has been discovered that money
has been distributed, and the house from
which that money has come is known ; wine
has also been distributed ; cries of "Vive Na
poleon" have resounded in our ears, and the
walls have been covered with seditious pla
cards. Within four days three Napoleonist
journals were established, preparing the can
didatesship of Louis Napoleon as President.
If the National Assembly thinks that no mea
sure should be taken in the face of such
facts, let it declare its opinion the Execu
tive Committee does its duty, let the National
Assembly do theirs. (Approbation.) Pros
cription and the sovereignty of the people
have been spoken of, and these words had
no doubt their effect on us. But we are now
statesmen, and reason must take the part of
sentiment. (Approbation.) It has been said
that Louis Bonaparte is a stranger to what is
going on. That lias been the expression of
every one but himself. Has he come and
given his adherence to the Republic 1 I
wish that those Republicans who are assem
bled round the wallsof this building, and who
allow themselves to be led away by generous
sentiments, could hear my voice, for I would
say to them, "It is a law of necessity, but
which will be only temporary." As for
those who have only placed themselves under
this stand to work on the old souvenirs of
glory against the Republic, there is no pity
for them. (Approbation.)
After much further discussion, and amidst
great excitement, propositions for tho adjourn
ment of the discussion, &c, &c, the question
was put, whether M. Louis Napoleon should
be, admitted to take his sent in the National
Assembly ; and voted in the affirmative by a
large majority. In consequence of this vote,
Louis Napoleon is admitted to take his seat,
subject, however, to prove that he is a French

past week some very heavy rains. The
earth, which had become parched by the
hot weather of several weeks past, is now
thoroughly saturated, and the Susquehanna
and its tributaries, have become considera

OIF" Harvest. A number of our far
mers commenced harvesting a week ago,
but the greatest portion of the grain is yet
to be cut. The late rains have interfered
with the progress of harvesting. Grain,
generally looks well, and is, we believe,
pretty generally free from rust, mildew,
smut, &c. Our farmers will have much
better crops than they had anticipated du
ring the winter. From present appearances
at home and abroad we think there will be
a decline in the prices, but of this, of course,
none can speak with certainty. There is
no knowing what events may bring forth.

Gov. Dodge's Declination. What the
'Free Territory Party" will do for a candi
date for the Vice Presidency is a puzzle.
Gov. Dodge, after waiting, as he says, some
days for information from the Convention of
his nomination, deems it proper to delay no
longer stating iiis inability to accept it. He
says :
"The State to which I belong was repre
sented in the Baltimore Convention; the vote
of that Slate was given to Messrs. Cass and
nutter ; they were nominated : ana as one ol
the citizens of that State, that nomination im
mediately received my cordial concurrence
and support, and will continue to do so."
The draught of the constitution for France
was said to be ready for presentation, and
was referred to generally yesterday. Rumor
st.ited that it would recommend a President
who should hold oflice for four years, and
that M. Arago would probably be selected
for the post. Prince I.ouis Napoleon was also
spoken of, but only it is believed, to bring
him into discredit. A very strong petition to
the Assembly was in course of signature, re
commending M. Caussidiere for the office.
"Strange to say," observes our correspondent,
"neither M. Lamartine nor M. Ledru Rollin
are mentioned as candidates."

KF" We presume our readers, as well
as the readers of the Miltonian, will learn
with the most profound grief, that the re
doubtable editors of that redoubtable and
most extraordinary paper, do not approve
of our course in politics. Dr. Johnson once
remarked to a presumptuous young man,
who, said he could not understand him,
that he was not bound to furnish him with
both argument and understanding, which,
we presume we should have to do, if we
ever expected to convince the learned edi
tors of the Miltonian. They cannot con
ceive how we should speak well of a po
litical opponent without supporting him.
There are some men who have souls so
small that they might be poised on the
point of a cambric needle. Such per
sons always view things through the nar
row medium of their own contracted little
ness. No one would ever suspect the Mil
tonian of saying anything in favor of a
democrat, or of advocating a measure not
sanctioned by their party, unless indeed it
would be in behalf of Uncle John the Judge,
whose interest in the establishment, may
have a controlling influence. Unfortu
nately for the country, there are too many
editors of both parties, who think that a
blind and slavish adherence to the behests
of the would-be leaders of the party, is the
perfection of political consistency, and
whose only idea of liberty and indeiien-
dence, consists in the liberty to heap abuses
on their ixilitical opponents, with indepen
dence enough to hold in contempt such
stale virtues as candor and honesty. We
can ljardly suppose that the editors of the
Miltonian, believe that we fear any com
ments that they or any one else may choose
to make on our articles.
K" The democrats of the upper end
must be under great obligations to the edi
tors of the Miltonian, who profess to exer
cise a fatherly care over them, and enligh
ten them in their ignorance of political mat
ters. The Miltonian has already informed
them how the 'loco focos" of the lower
end are going to manage matters. Our
democratic friends of the Forks are no
doubt aware of, and know how to appreci
ate the services of the Miltonian, without
which, they must long since inevitably
have been lost.
The "loco focos" of the lower end would
however, be glad to know how much of
all this disinterested service is owing to the
fact that Mr. Frick is trying to make a
Senator out of himself, and which he vainly
imagines he can do by creating discord

that we thought a leather medal should be

to say that our neighbors of the Gasette
are fairly entitled to the medal.

by a letter to the President of the Philauthro,
pic Society of Mexico, who applied for the
pardon. He says :
It will be seen horn those orders that I
have extended a free and full pardon to all
Mexican prisoners, including those of the
company of San Patricio, and to all Ameri

not absolutely require to be retained for

Resolved, That as a party of principles it
is folly to talk of opposition from a party who
in their National Convention abandoned nil
principles. We have beat them when they
