11t1J frfJurø1Jap'ø lJoøtø. LONDON, MAY 10. THE Paris journals received are 10 Saturday's JL date. The Moniteur contains a telegraphic des- patch from Bayonne, dated May 5, announcing that the Spanish Ministry had stated in the Senate that the Regent had accepted the resignation of the Ministry, and had charged M. Cortina to form a new Cabinet. This task, it is believed, will be one of great difficulty. We learn from a Toulon Jounrnal that Abd-el-Kader had re-appeared in the west of the Regency at the head of a formidable force, and succeeded in raising against the French several tribes residing in the viciniy of Mascara. The Kalifat appointed by France had heen obliged to seek refuge in that town, and the Emir, being left sole master of the country, caused the chiefs who had declared against him to be decapitated, and the natives, thus deprived of their leaders, had joined the movement.—The Journal des Debats an- nounces that M. Victor Marwais, one of the astronomers attached to the observatory of Paris, had discovered a telescope comet on the limits of the constellations the Swan and Pegasus. The following was the position of this luminary on Wednesday, the 3d of May. at 15 hours, 10 minutes, 54 seconds, medium time of Paris, reckoned from midday, or 10 minutes, 54 seconds, after three o'clock in the morning—Right ascension.— Of domestic news the Pari papers an- very barren. There is one exception, however, honourable to the King of the French, and an omen of good to England and France. It shows in a striking manner one of the great objects of that able and enlightened Prince, and leads to the conviction that while he lives the peace of Europe shall not be disturbed by France. On the occasion of 'he King's fete, the President of the Seine Tribunal of Commerce addressed his Majesty, and after adverting to the reciprocal extradition of fraudu- lent bankrupts, agreed to between England and France, recommended that a similar treaty should be formed with other Governments, to which the King made the following admirable reply: I shall recommend to my Government the important object I to which yoo direct my attention. I am well pleased to have concluded with England the treaty to which yon allude. Tlus: result, which no other Power had previously obtained, is not due merely to the continuance of peace, but to the just confi- dence ttoat we have been able to inspire in the stability of our future prospects, and in the good faith of oor relations. Com- inerce can only flourish in the shadow of peace, and I hope that with the reign of order, liberty, «nd law, it# prosperity will in-" crease each day more and more. The 'merchants of Paris are aware how much I desire this result, and they may be snre that I shall neglect nothing to attain it. A disastrous accident occurred on the Liege and Brussels railroad on the 2d inst, owing to a fire being discovered in the waggon appropriated to the convey- ance of small parcels of goods: the signal to stop being heard by the passengers, they became dreadfully alarmed, and many of them jumped out before the train had ceased its speed, by which six persons were killed and 15 seriously injured, either by the shock of their fall, or from getting under the wheels of the carriages These events were the more lamentable as there was no real danger to the passengers from the burning waggon, which was, in a very few minutes, detached and drawn to a safe distance. The accident. is said to have been occasioned by the breaking of two bo'tles of varnish placed in the waggon. None of the carriages were injured, and even the waggon was only partially burnt. From intelligence brought by the Levant Mail from Constantinople to the 17th ult., we learn that the Porte on the 13th ult. signified to the Russian Ambassador its acquiescence in the views taken of the Servian question by the Emperor Nicholas, and that a new election of a Governor would take place forthwith. It would appear the Turkish Ministers were almost unanimous in op- posing this result, bat yielded at once when the Sultan Announced that be had made up his mind to yield to the wishes of the four Great Powers A Turkish and Rus- sian Commissioner were forthwith to proceed to Servia to make arrangements for the new election. Her Majesty's ship Penguin, arrived at Falmouth on Saturday, from Rio de Janeiro direct, brings the Brazilian mail to the 23d of March. This vessel con- firms the unsuccessful result of Mr. Ellis's special mission to the Court of Brazil, with a view of effecting a Treaty between that Empire and Great Britain, his proposals having been rejected, and his final audience for formally taking leave being fixed for the 25th of March, soon after which it was expected he would em- bark in her Majesty's ship Malabar for England.
The nomination of a candidate to succeed Mr. Brodie for the borough of Salisbury took place on Wednes- day when the Hon, E. P. Bonverie was proposed by Dr. Fowler, and Mr. Hussey, a conservative, by Mr. Jacob. The show of hands was nearly equal on both sides, and a poll was demanded, which took place on the following day. Mr, Hussey was returned by a majority of 64 votes. We regret to announce the failure of Ackermann and Co., printsellers and engravers, in the Strand, and successors to the late celebrated Rudolph Ackermann, who have produced so many beautiful works of art. Some of the morning papers state that the liabilities amount to 200,000/. and upwards. We have authority to state that this is a gross exaggeration; the whole amount, probably, will not exceed 30,000?. Sun.— [The failure is attributed to the large amount of stock on band.] THE DUKE OF BUCKINGHAM AND THE CORN-LAWS. —A story is current in this neighbourhood that the Duke of Buckingham, recently, in conversation with another "rmen" friend," actually expressed his conviction that the corn-laws mnst go, that there were no hopes of their continuance, and that he had made up his mind to expect their repeat very shortly. This may account for his Grace's apathy and inaction. If every monopoly needed the de- termined, united, and outiring exertions of monopolists, it is just now, when it is threatened by the man put into power to support it, attacked on all sides by its avowed enemies, and being damaged every day by its professed aod indiscreet friends. The answer, too, of the Duke of Buckingham, on declining to sanction the late county meeting, is significant, and afforded evidence confirmatory of this story. "If a meeting had been called seven or eight months ago, I would have assisted bnt now I consider all such movements to be useless."—Aylesbury Newt.

IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. HOUSE OF LORDS. MONDA Y, MA Y 8.—Numerous petitions, praying for a repeal of the Corn. laws were presented, and a few upon other subjects. IRISH POOR LAWS.—Lord Roden and Lord Glengall having prestnted petitions on the present system of Poor-laws in Ire- land, deprecating the agitation raised against it, The Marquis of C/anricarde rose to bring forward the mo'ion of which be had given notice, for a Select Committee of Inquiry re- specting the operation of the Irish Poor-law Act. The Noble Marquis, at considerable length, shewed that the plan had en- tirely failed in its object, and that the measure was a positive evil and oppression. In ftict, the system was such as to lower the moral feeling of the people.—The Archbishop of Dublin bore testimony to the correctness of the statements of the Noble Mar- quis; and observed that it would be most unwise to put o It" the inquiry, and to allow things to remain as they were for another year. The Rev. Prelate concluded by imploring the House to deprive the agitators of their most powerfa) argument, by proving to the Irish people that the United Parliament was disposed to listen to the'r reasonable complaints.—The Duke of Wellington opposed the motion, on the ground that the bill had received mature consideration when introduced, and that there was a bill in the Commons for amending the Act.—The Marquis of Clanri- carde withdrew his motion, on an understanding from the Duke of Wellington that when the bill came up from the Commons, if motion should be made to refer it to a Select Committee, he would leave the matter to the sense of the House.—Arij. TUESDAY, MAY 9.—The Royal Assent was given by Com- mission to several public and private bills; and the Customary Tenures Bill was read a third time and passod. REPEAL OF THE UNION.— Earl Roden inquired if Ministers were aware of the frightful extent of the excitement which pre- vailed in Ireland on the subject of the repeat of the Union, and if Ministers intended to adopt any measures to put an end to that exoitement. The Noble Earl then directed attention to the sentiments of Lord Altborpe when Chancellor of the Exchequer, and of Sir Robert Peel when leader of the Opposion. both of whom viewed a repeal of the Legislative union of the two countries as the worst etil that could befal the empire—an evil more to be dreaded than a civil war (hear, hear.) He ca!led upon Magistrates, if the jan, were insufficient, to lose no time in doing something that would give confidence to the loyal popu- lation of Ireland (hear). The Noble Earl concluded by putting his questions.—The Duke of Wellington said, that the Government was sensible of the excitement which prevailed in Ireland on the subject of the repeal of the Union, and also of the danger which might arise from that excitement. The Government had adopted measures to preserve the peace of Ireland, if anv to break it were made.^ Ministers were determined to do everything to preserve inviolate the legislative union of the two countries.— Ministers were determined to act upon the terms of the joint ad- dress of both Houses of Parliament, moved by Earl Grey and Lord Althorpe, and agreed to in 1834, (Hear). In the foil confidence of the support of Parliament, Ministers weredetermineu to act upon that address. (Hear). Lord Brougham entirely concurred with the Noble Duke; everything that occurred in England, nay, in Earope, during the last nine years, convinced him, as he was sure it did their Lordships, of the necessity of presorting the legislative union. He felt no-fear from the result of these agita- tions and he was sure that Ministers, for the sake of gaining any fleeting, trumpery, or base popularity, did not forbear from ] dealing with the promoters of the excitement to which allusion has been made (Hear)—The Marquis of Lansdoume expressed similar sentiments, as did the Marquis oj Downshire. The con- versation then dropped.—Adj. HOUSE OF COMMONS. MONDAY, MAY 8.-Tbe Speaker took the chair at the usual hour, when be informed the House, that the securities for the prosecation of the Nottingham petition against the last election were unexceptionable. A great number of petitions were presented, praying for a total repeal of the Corn-laws, and against the Factories Education Bill. ° Mr. Roebuck gave notice, that, at an early opportunity, he would call the attention of the House to the occupation of Scinde. THE BUDGET. The House resolved itself into Committee of Ways and Means, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer rose. He referred to the large measures introduced last year for the increase of revenue and for the diminution of import duties, observing that though the imposition of the property tax, and the diminution of the im- port duty were contemporaneous, the new tax did not come into operation till after six or nine months from its enactment, while the remission of the old duties took effect at once; so that there was one period of the last year during which the accruing income ■was unequal to tbe current expenditure. To have postponed tbe reduction of the dnties, when once such reduction bad been an- nounced, would have been injurious to trade in all the articles affected by that reduction and it bad not been thought justifiable to meet the exigency by the onlv other alternative-^the raising of a loan for the year's service. Tbt\ revenue calculated upon by Sir R. Peel for the year from the Customs had been 22,500,0001.; in that be had been disappointed, the aotna) produce having been only 21,750,000/. A great part of the deficiency had been npon the wine duty, the wine trade having been extensively checked by the delays of the treaty with Portugal. There had also been a diminution on the estimated duty upon foreign spirits but this diminution he hoped was owing chiefly to the improvement in the temperance of the people. The timber duty, on which there had been a remission, bad produced somewhat less than bad been ex- pected from it but the timber trade was now improving, and with it the produce of the duty. The case was the same with coffee. On the minor articles lnclnded in the tariff the loss had been in a somewhat larger proportion. On the other hand, there had been an increase in the consumption of tea, sugar, tobaoco., molasses, and pepper. There had been also an increase in the consumption of cotton and various other articles employed in manufactures, indicating a general improvement in oar industry and he was happv to say that the rate of that increase had been much accelerated since the beginning of the present year. On the estimated produce of the excise there had been a deficiency of 1,200,000/ of which Mr. Goulburn proceeded to explain the details. Upon the whole, the revenue had fallen short of Sir R. Peel's estimate by somewhat more than 2,000,00Ol. That defal- cation was, however, diminished to aboatl,250,OOOI., by a pay- ment from China of about 125,0001. Against the deficiency thus constituted, was to be set the produce of the income-tax, which hud exceeded the expectation formed of it. It was not yet all collected; but it would probably amount to about 5;500,0001., of which about 5,100,0001. would be net revenue. He might now be asked in what way be intended to meet this deficiency. And be would, at once declare that be had no new measure to propose. His caloolation"as thai the causes which bad ocoasionea thede- Soieney of last year were of a temporary character; that in the next and subseqnent years there woold be a surplus of revenue and out of that sorplns he proposed to discharge the small defici- ency of the year gone by. Until the repayment thus contemplated should be eomptete, the state of things would undoubtedly be an irksome one for the Ministers hot the more irksome it might be, the stronger wooldbetbe indaoement to them to make every effort for keeping down their expenditure. He would next present his estimate forthenext year. There were two heavy charges which did not form part of the ordinary expenses of the year—the one a payment of 800,0001.10 the owners ot the opium, and the other a payment of 1,250,0001.10 the East India Com pan v on account of expenses borne by them for the China war. He proposed to advance the money requisite for these two payments, and take repayment out of the future remittances from China. He then proceeded to state the probable revenue of the year under the usnal beads of Customs, Excise, Stamps, and so forth, makiog < total estimated revenue of 50,I50,0<t(M.; in which, however, he included a sum of 810,0001. from the Chinese government; and he followed this calculation with an estimate of the probable ex- penaes oftbe year, under tbe osual headllof Army, Navy, Ordnance, and so forth, making a total estimated outlay of 49,381,6451.; whicb being deducted from the 50,150,0001., would teavea sur- plus of T62,000<. in favour of revenue above expenditure. Under these circumstances, he had not. been able, however mocb be desired it, to yield to any of the nnmerons applications which bad been made to him for remission of taxation. He trosted that if there were any error in his computation, it would torn out that he had been tnO moderate rather thlln too sanguine in bi, esti. mates especially as he now saw indications of improvement, on which be thought bimsetfentitted to rely, in the augmented con- sumption and reviving manufactures of the country. He then stated the substance of several impartial returns respecting the state of indastry in the three great towns of London, Liverpool, and Manchester, confirming this favourable view, particularly as to the cotton. Unen, and woollen manufactures. Distress, indeed, was still prevaling in othaf branches ofotr industry bot an im- provement in the grea'er branches must necessarily extend itself in no long time to the others. Thus, therefore, though be was not in a condition to make a flattering statement of the country's resources, be trusted the time was not far distant when the Chan- cellor of the Exchequer would be able to come down with a pro- posal for easing the industry of the country by important remis- sions. He cOlicloded by moving 11 vote of 41,943,0001. Mr. Hume contended that the diminution in the regular revenae had arisen in a great measure from the additional taxation imposed in the shape of income-tax. He was delighted that the Govern- ment bad been disappointed in their expectations from the duty which tbey bad so unwisely imposed upon coal. He saw no reason to soppose that the receipts of the next year would, as Mr. Goalburn bad aalcolated. exoeeti the receiptsoftbe last. The only way to relieve the country was to diminish our expensive army and navy, and then we might take off the income-tax and the taxes upon raw materials. Mr. Francis Baring (the late Chancellor of the Exchequer) criticised the financial statement, which showed that the present Government, when in opposition, had proved to be false critics, as well as bad financiers. The revenue bad prodoced by op- wards of 2,ùOO,OOOI. lellS tban bad been anticipated by a very Mbercatootation; what they bad taken oat of tbe pockets of the people by the income-tax, they bad lost on the revenae derived from articles of consumption. Why not try farther redaction of duty, and try if that would not produce an increase of revenue ? rfake for instance, Brazilian sugar; tbey bad reduced the duties on coffee,-and a little sugar to mix with itwoold- not bort the revenue. Sir R. Pul,admittedtbllt be bad been disappointed in his com- putation with respect to the produce of the revenae, bat defended tbe commercial policy of the Government. He (Sir Robert) be. lieved that with respeetto IOme of the most important classes of manufacture, there was an improvement in progress, which be trosted would, ere long, .extend itself to other branches of in. duttry and he hoped that in the present state of tbe country the Houle woold not force the Government to reduce taxation. He wished, most sincerely, that it had been possible to relieve the eoantry by some remission but, in the present state of financial affairs that remission was impracticable. Lord J. Russell expressed his belief, that if the financial plan of himself and his friends bad been adopted, the whole deficiency would not have exceeded 1,000,0001., for which sum it would not have been necessary to lay on so heavy a tax as the tax upon income. There was now a deficiency in the Revenue (if con- sidered exclusively of Income-tax) to the extent 2,400,000/. The natural coorsewould bave been to set the Chinese remittances against the Chinese liabilities; and not to set aside tbe liabilities, and bring tbe remittances into the revenae of the year. He did not recommend the repeal of the Income-tax now, because a frequent shifting of public imposts was a great evil; but when the three years for which the tax was imposed should be expired, lie trusted that Parliament would seriously reconsider the subject. He strong!* recommended a redaction in tbe sugar duties. Several Members condemned the duty on coal, and tbe Irish spirit duty.—Ultimately the proposed sum was voted, and tbe other orders of the day disposed of.—Adj. TUESDAY,MAv9.-The Speaker having taken the cbair, an immense number of petitions, against tbe present Corn-laws were presented, Mr. Cobden presented 375.—Several petitions against the Factories Education Bill were also presented. REPEAL OF THE UNION.—Lord Jocelyn, before the House proceeded to the motions of the day, requested to know from Sir R. Peel the intentions of the Government with respect to the maintenance of the Irish Union, now threatened by extensive agi- tation.—Sir R. Peel replied substantially to the same purport as the Duke of Wellington—[see report above], and added—" If tbe Government should find it necessary to apply to Parliament for other and more enlarged powers, that application would be granted the more readily in consequence of the forbearance of Ministers to make it until tbe necessity shoald have been mani- fested by experience of the inadequacy of the existing law." REPEAL OF THE CORN LAWS.—Mr.ViUiers brought on his motion for a Committee to consider tbe duties on tbe importation Of foreign corn, with a view to tbeir total abolition. After affirm- ing that the general opinion of the people had now come to be in favour of the abolition, he stated his persuasion that this change ofsentiment was owing mainly to tbe Anti-Corn-Law League, whom be greatly eulogized. It bad been said, in 1839, that the distress which be bad then urged as a reason for tbe repeal of the Corn-Jaw, was only a passing cloud; but it was a cloud which "v. t. bad become blacker and blacker in each succeeding year. On the aggregate of those four years Ihe people bad paid more for ,theirfoodthan in the four years preceding by 60,000,0001. sterling; and it was obvious, that if they spent this large sum in the pur- chase of their food, they had so much the less to spend on articles of manufacture, and other comforts of life. It was pretended that the Corn-law was favourable to agriculture. The contrary was the fact. Agriculture was advanced by improvements in land but the Corn-law led the farmer to relv for his remuneration upon the protection of the Legislature, rather than upon any such im- provements. Improvements could be made productive only by steadiness of price, which could be obtained only through tree- trade. It was apprehended by some that the land would be thrown out of cultivation bv low prices, but the years in which prices had been low had not been years in which enclosure acts had been few. Then it was said that great numbers of labourers would be thrown out of employ but the present state of the la- bourers was so wretched, that any change conld scarcely be in- jurious to them. It had been pleaded that there were peculiar burdens on the land, but when a Committee was asked for to investigate those burdens, it was refused. True, the land paid tithes but the tithes were no part of the landlord's property and as to the land-tax, its history proved only that the landlords had shamelessly evaded what ought to have been so fixed as to constitute a fair commutation for the scrvice, due upon the tenure of land. This Corn-law was enacted for the benefit of the legis- lators-some of them had fairly confessed it—and what was so confessed was believed by the people, who regarded the law as a scandal upon humanity, and an outrage to Christianity. Mr. V. Stuart seconded the motion. Mr. Gladstone deemed it necessary to address the House early in the debate, that there might be no doubt, even for a moment, as to the course intended to be taken bv the Government on this motion, which they were prepared to meet by a decided negative. He then proceeded to reply to the several points adduced by Mr. villiers, and cautioned the House against agreeing, in the teeth of such experience as they had had, to a change which, if thus precipitately made, would place them before the eves of other nations as men altogether unfit for the legislation of a great country. Mr: Trelawny supported, and Mr. Christopher opposed, the motion. f Mr. Roebuck did not believe that the repeal of the Corn-laws was 10 be a panacea for the existing distress but, at such a sea-on, the responsibility lay heavily on the Government and the land- lords to give some relief. But let the Anti-Corn-Law gentlemen understand the real nature of the question let them not suppose they were to get free trade in corn withont free trade in every- thing else. He would advise them to seek the truth without calling names and imputing undue motives. He would have both sides believe that other people might be as honest as themselves. On the motion of Mr. Miles, the debate was adjourned.
