Arrival of the Acadia.
The steamship Acadia arrived at Bos•

little interest by her, except the follow.
Progress of repeq ni Ireland-0 elVag
ton's threat of a Resort to Xrme-o'.
Connel's Prepartion for defence--
Troops pouring usto Ireland.
The agitation for the Repeal of the
Union is making strides in Ireland very
alarmingito the Government. Mr. O'Con.
nell has remained at home organizing his
plans for moving his countrymen, and he
has succeeded effectually. Tens of thou
sands are congregated under the Repeal
Standard, and the country is in the same
fearful state of agitation as in 1829. To
arrest this disorganization, the Duke of
Wellington, in the upper, and Sir Robert
Peel in the lower House, declared their
intention, the other evening, of patting
down the Repeal agitation—by force if
necessary. The movement is as odious in
England as it is popular in Ireland.—
Mean While, Mr. O'Connell has hurled de
fiance at his assailants,
and in terms more
n .rgetic than polite, dares them to the
conflict. Troops are pouring daily into
Ireland, and that unhappy land seems des
tined to continue what it has ever been--
a prey to contending factions and angry
THE BRITISH CORN LAws.--The repeal
of the Corn Laws has been again agitated
in the British House of Commons
without any result that promises favorably
for the future success of the agitators.—
The debate arose upon a motion of Mr.
VIt,LIERS that the House resolve itself
into a committee for the consideration of
those laws, '‘ with a view for their imme
diate abolition." The discussion contin
ued for four nights, when Sir ROBERT
PEEL in a closing speech announced his
intention to make no change in the exis-
Xing laws. The motion was lost by a vote
of 381 to 125, giving the Ministers a ma
jority of one hundred and fifty-six. It
thus appears that the present House of
Commons stands more than three to one
in favor of the Corn Laws as they are.
It may be safely concluded, we pre
sume. that so lung as the government of
Great Britain rests upon its existing basis,
and under the control of a landed aristo
cracy, so long will the corn law system,
or one similar to it, continue in force.
From Nassau, N. P.
BY letters of recent date from Nassau,
received via Baltimore, we learn that six
or eight slaves had stolen a fine pilot boat
sloop firo►n Key West, and made good
their escape to New Providence, or some
one of the neighboring ialandr. They
were pursued up to Nassau by the owners,
but neither they nor the vessel could be
found. The latter may probably be re
covered, but the negroes on reaching a
British colony, are at once free, as has
been seen in several instances. Such oc
currences are well calculated to keep up
an anzry feeling on the part of the south
ern States towards the English govern•
meta, for thus encouraging runaway
slaves without making any remuneration
for the loss of property.
The Government House, the residence
of Sir Francis Cockburn, was near being
blown up lately from ti
the carelessness of
soldier, who, with three or four others,
were at work in the cellar. The soldier
accidently dropped from his pipe a coal of
tire among some loose powder, which ex
ploded, dreadfully wounding, if not kill
ing the men, and setting the building on
tire, but by the prompt exertion of the
garrison and citizens, the flames were ex.
tinguished without very great injury.—
This building was erected by the colony
at great expense, for the residence of their
Governors, and would have been a serious
loss if destroyed. There is no other news
The Sandwich Islands,
The "Courier des Etats Unis" (French
paper here,) calls attention to the English
seizure and occupation of the Sandwich
Islands. It analyses the charges alleged
against the King, and rebuts them at
length. The Courier justly adds, there is
a great difference between Admiral Dupe..
tit Thouar's occupation of the Marques
ses, and the Society Islands, " uncultiva
ted, almost uninhabited, and upon which
has not penetrated yet the civilization of
1 Europe," :did ;this seizure of the Sand
wich Islands, which have so long been
open to civilization, and which have made
such rapid progress. The Sandwich
Islands, it adds, like France, the United
States and Great Britain, have their chur
ces, their schools, their juries parliamen•
tary government, which the English have
seized upon, while France has only taken
rocks, which she is transformit►g into
asylums for all the navies of the world.--
The Courier also calls attention to the
fact, that the French Captain Mallet in
in the French corvette, the Embuscade,
who presented himself in the port of Ho-
nolulu to demand a reparation for injuries
inflicted upon the French, retired, even
after an ultimatum when assured that an
Ambassador had gone to Europe to settle
their difference.—.N. Y. Express.
We find the following pertinent note
in a New York paper :
"We lean that Messrs. Richards and
Halilio are expected to return to the
Islands shortly from Europe, hav►ng been
successful in the object of then•
that is, the acknowledgment of their in
The Trouble in Cuba.
The New Orleans Republican doubts
the correctness of the reported rebellion in
Cuba. It says—. We learn that several
Spanish gentlemen mho left Havana six
d ys ago. declare they had not heard of an
actual insurrection in the neighborhood of
Sontiago de Cubs. Their version of the
story runs thus: The Governor of Stan.
tiago having received information that
English abolitionists contemp tied making
an expedition from Jamacia, with the in
tention of creating a servile war on the
Southern side of Cuba, sent an express to
the captain-general at Havana. The let
ter thereupon ordered the Spanish vessels
of war and steamers then in Havana to
repair with due diligence to Santiago.—
No overt act of revolt had occurred."
By the fast sailing brig Elizabeth, Cap
tain Romington, we have received papers
to the 21st ult. hut see but little interest in
them. The news front Campeachy is not
so late as we have OR New Orleans.—
The city was tolerably healthy for the
season, and the markets well supplied
with American produce. Freights to Eu
rope were not plenty, and had declined.

The Monterey Affairs.
A Mexican paper, the.Conciliador, anti
ding to this affair, says that " the public
have already pronounced their judgment,
and whilst the United States refrain from
condemning in a formal and explicit man
ner, the conduct of Commodore Jones,
until the manifests which he published on
landing his force, shall be disavowed offi
cially, a manifesto declaring that his ope
ratons were conformable to orders from
his superiors, the Mexican Government
will have reason to doubt the good faith of
its Northern neighbors, and for our part
we shall believe that the attack was made
in consequence of a plan long ago con
certed by the U. S. Government."

A FRIENDLY HINT.
It is now more than a year since I dispo
sed of the Huntingdon Journal," and du
ring all that time, 1 have been wPiting pa
tiently, upon those who are in my debt, for
subscription and advertising. I have beets
living on promises; and what is more, those
to whom I am indebted, have been obliged
to take Viromisee from me ; and they like
myself, are getting out of patience with this
kind of a credit system.' Now by way of
a hint I wish to say to all who know them
selves to be in arrears tome, that 'must have
my accounts closed ; and there is another
part of the story—l wits,. 1 am not dispo
sed to be illnatured, but mind 1 tell you all.
I am out of money—nearly out of credit—
and a settlement must be bad between this
and August Court--or well I wont say
what, A. W. BENEDICT.
