The Packet ship Yark, Csi‘t:. - tursley,
has arrived at New York, and rings Len-
don papers to Oct. 24th, and Liverpool to
the 25th, both inclusive.
The news by this arrival, especially from
England, is as favorable to the tranquility of
that country, considering the loss ( I f the Re
form Bill, as our warmest anticipations.
The British Parliament was prorogued by
the King in person on the 20th Oct. until
the 22d Nov. The King delivered a, speech
on the occasion, and the most important
part is, the assertion that the Reform Bill
will be re-introduced at the opening of Par
liament: - The Liverpool Times of 23th
Oct. says that that sentence of the speech
relating to the Bill was delivered with strong
and manly 'emplinsis r evincing, that the king
is as warm and resolute on the subject as
the - warmest' refonneri can desire. The
people of England, as we anticipated, have .
entire confidence in the King, the Minist ry
and the House of Commons, they are united
—they all desire reform, and reform 'They
Will have. Though much excitement pre
vaildd—though some riots had taken place
—and large meetings had been held in al
most every town of the kingdom—the inter
nal quiet of the country had not been serious
ly disturbed. The British people, are' firm,
intelligent and patriotic, and will not proceed
to extremities while there is a hope left;
that they - can constitutionally obtain redress
of their manifold grievances. It would
be imposeThle even to allude to all the
resolutions and, addresses passed by the
rious meetings throughout the country.
The French Government, says the Liver
pool Times, has taken a great step towards
free trade. It has introduced a new corn
law, abolishing prohibitions, and permitting
importation and exportation at a reduced
scale of duties.
Lord Sandon has been elected to Parlia
ment from Liverpool.
Mr. O'Connell has received 'a silk gown.
Whether it a prelude to the acceptance
efollice„ says the Globe, time will determine..
Several of the Polish officers have suc

Several Peers, and those anti-reform Peers
too, have recently been very large purCha
sers in the American Funds ! One Peer,
who refuses all reform, purchased last week
£30,000 American Stock; his ancestors re
fused all concession to the U. States; but folks
there are who, "forget nothing and learn
nothing," be the experience what it may.—
Mr. Van Buren had the hoar of dining
with the King on the 15th, with a select
party, among whom was our fair country
woman, the Marchioness of Wellesly.
The cholEts, has m&le its appearance in
Hamburg. During the first eight days only
31 deaths occurred, in a population of 130,-

nearly dragged out of the mail coach at Bath
having been mistaken , for Another Bishop
