LATEST INTELLIGENCE. LONDON, THURSDAY EVENING. By accounts from Lisbon, to the 24th ult., we learn that tin preliminary opening of the Cortes took place 011 the 18th, un- attended by any sign of the disturbances which had so confi- dently anticipated. There was a very full attendance of Depu- ties, and much anxiety was manifested, to hear Senhor 1)assm Manuel's justification of the conduct pursued by Ministers with reference to the question of their eligibility to sit in Par- liament in conformity with the constitution of 1832. After an animated debate, the Chamber divided in favour of Ministers, by a majority of 44 to 17. Count Mole, the French Premier, has been confined to his house for the last few days by the predominant complaint. It rages so violently in Pans, that the play at the Theatre Fran- fais was changed no less than three times, in consequence oj the actors engaged in the performances being sudenly sieuI; with la ertppn The Opera Gomnjtte closed suddenly during the performaiice on Sunday evening, one of the artists having diea whilst singing on the stage. Public and private accounts represent the progress of the Influenza in London as alarming. The Mavsvitle (Kentucky) Monitor, of the 29th of December, has the following paragraph:â REPORTED STEAMBOAT DISASTER.âIt was reported here last week by boats from above, that the entire cabin of the steamboat Mariner, on the way up, was blown off" during a gale that prevailed on Monday or Tuesday night, and that 20 or 30 passengers had been aroused from their quiet slumbers to find their death pillows beneath the ruthless wave. The appearance a few days after this report of large pieces of a wreck floating down with the ice was calculated to confirm this most melan- choly intelligence." No material speculation has occurred in Shares. Great Western are 41J, Rennie's Brighton 2, and Cundy's 2t, pei share. London and Birmingham are 135 per share, and South- ampton are at dis. Consols for Account are at 89|; Spanish Bonds are 25J; Portuguese 485 49J; and Chilian 43 to 45. Exchequer Bills have also improved to 24 prem., and India Bonds are slightly higher, 17 to 19 prem., being the quotation.
