T EAS AT WHOLES A L E P R ICES, CARRIAGE FREE, No. 2, BUCKLERSBURY, CIIEAPSIDE. heading of our Circular sufficiently indicates the basis of our system, viz.—that of supplying the Public with Teas and Coffees I at Wholesale Prices for Ready Money.. t t This announcement m'av appear somewhat presuming and the question may naturally arise—How one party can sell at \V holesale P while another requires a Retail Profit ? The answer is simply this Our arrangements are identical with those of the largest Wholesale Establishments, and framed on the most Economical Scale. Our Warehouse, situate in a bye thoroughfare, is one of the Loudon, and affords the Greatest Facilities for the most Extensive Transactions, and is entirely unencumbered with i W merciless expenses inseparable from the show of a Retail Shop, and for which indirectly the purchaser is taxed. Our business, the Irreni of mam/ branches, extending throughout the United Kingdom, is of such magnitude, that our purchases are necessarily large, W we thus derive every advantage the market affords." It will, therefore, be seen that we are in a position to supply the public on the best and most economical terms—in fact, to supply at first hand by which all intermediate profitsare saved. In ouotinn- a partial selection of our prices, we have appended a few recommendatory remarks, and we wish particularly to ■ nder^tood as holdiÙ: ourselves responsible for each character so appended. AVj mention this, in consequence of the too frequent Tiractice of particularly in the Tea Trade—gulling the public with false alluring titles-^and while some are distributing the.r rubbish at half a crown a pound, others adopt the ingenious appellation of best Black Tea, which, for quality, is on a par with Best Ha s, .1 9,1.; Best Boots, 8s. 6d.; and Best Coats, a Guinea. It is, in point of fact, pretty candid confession that they do not keep the fitter descriptions of Tea. The following List is composed from the Latest and most Favourable Quotations in the Market.

We wish to direct particular attention to Coffee, from the fact of our having, after great trouble and expense, succeeded in perfecting the machinery for roasting, which has never before been discovered.

FRANCE. M* Marrast announced on Wednesday to the National Assembly the demise of three of its members—1V1. Fayet, bishop of Orleans, M. Ballot, and M. Coulmann. This triple anuounoement caused a great sensation. M. Coulmann was in his place in the Assembly the day before. The report of the Committee of the National Assembly on the budget of the Minister of Public Instruction, proposes reductions, amounting to l,048,524f. The chapter relative to the salaries and expenses of the cardinals, archbishops, and bishops, was the subject of animated discussion. General Changarnier has written a letter to the Patne, in which he declares, that he will not accept the subscription proposed to be raised in his favour, in place of the 50,000 francs refused to him by the National Assembly. The total number of cases of cholera in the Paris hospitals reported to Wednesday is 1,006, of which there are 595 dead. 419 cases occurred in one hospital, the Salpetriere; nevertheless, the admissions to and deaths in the hospitals, are not above the usual average at this season. The subscriptions received by the Secretary of the Com- mittee of the Rue de Poitiers for the publication of a cheap periodical to destroy the effects of the Socialist propagandism have amounted to 140,000 francs. It is reported that M. Proudhon, proprietor of Le Peuple, had made his escape from prison, in which, it will be recol- lected, he was confined, pursuant to his sentence, for a sedi- tious libel. General Changarnier has been raised to the dignity of Grand Officer of the Legion of Honour. /;) Lord Brougham has arrived in Paris. The Q tteen of the French arrived at Boulogne on Satur- day morning with another party of English yisiters-ahout 2'50. After partaking of refreshments they left for Paris. M. Dosnc, the father-in-law of M. Thiers, died on Satur- day morning of cholera, after a few hours' illness. The epidemic is more prevalent in Paris than the authorities are disposed to admit. Every effort is made, both by the govern- ment and the press, to conceal its extension. There are fifty-eight members of the National Assembly confined to their apartments by serious indisposition. THE ENGLISH IN THE FRENCH CAPITAL.-Tlie minister of the Public Works has given orders for the admission of the English to the national buildings and parks, which are not usually open to the public.
ITALY. The principal news relates to negotiations in Paris,where the object of Gioberti's mission is differently stated. The Times makes the following announcement:—"There is reason to anticipate that the views of the Austrian Cabinet with reference to the affairs of Italy in general, are such as to promote, rather than frustrate, the real national objects of the Italian States, and that the present negotiations will end in the formation of an Italian Confederation, in which the Imperial Government will occupy the position due to the importance of its Italian dominions." h The speculations of the Paris papers of a settlement of the Italian question by the abandonment, on the part of Pied- mont, of all claim upon Lombardy, and the cession of Parma and Placenzia to Piedmont,—as far as the views of Austria are yet known, is without foundation. When Marshal Radetzky agreed to the armistice, he stated plenipotentiaries on both sides would settle the definitive peace; and plenipo- tentiaries have not yet been named on either side. The Evenement states, that the following are the defini- tive bases of the treaty offered by the Cabinet of Vienna to Piedmont:—"An offensive and defensive alliance with Austria; a contributionof 100,000,000 of francs, in exchange for which the Dutchies of Parma and Placenzia are to De annexed to Piedmont; an unconditional amnesty in favour of the Lombards and Venetians; an Italian Congress to organise a confederation of all the Italian States, under the patronage of Austria, of which Milan is to be the seat; the votes of each are to be divided as followsLombardy and Venice, 10 votes; Naples, 10; Piedmont, 10; Rome, 6; Tuscany, 3; and Modena, 2. The re-establishment of the Pope and the Grand Duke of Tuscany; the Lombardo-Vene- tian Kingdom to form a separate Government, with a Libe- ral, constitution, and connected by bonds of fraternity with the other states of the Monarchy." 11. The supplement of the Picdmimtese Gazette, of the 31st, publishes a Royal decree dissolving the Chamber. A letter from Turin, of the 31st ult., announces that one- half of the Members of the Chamber of Deputies had left for Genoa, after the publication of the decree of dissolution. A note from Bayonne, dated Monday, says" Last night Charles Albert came hither from Marseilles, and departed for Madrid on his way to Lisbon this day at noon." The following detailed account of the circumstances con- nected with the abdication of Charles Albert is given by the Patrie .—In the evening, after the battle, the King, sad but calm, returned to the Bellini Palace. At nine he sent for the Dukes of Savoy and Genoa, the Commander-in-Chief, the Minister Cadorna, and the lieutenant-generals and com- mandants of division at present at Novarra. The King ad- vanced with dignity, and said: Gentlemen, fortune has betrayed your courage and my hopes; our army is dissolved; it would be impossible to prolong the struggle. My task is accomplished, and I think I shall render an important service to my country by giving a last proof of devotedness, in abdicating in favour of my son, Victor Emanuel, Duke of Savoy. He will obtain from Austria conditions of peace which she would refuse If treating with me." The persons present burst into tears, but no emotion was visible in the i face of Charles Albert, and all the efforts of the Duke of Savoy to shake his resolve were vain. The King embraced him and the Duke of Genoa, and all who were present. He thanked them for the services they had rendered him, and said, Gentlemen, I am no longer your King; be faithful and devoted to my son, as you have been to me."
SARDINIA. News had been received at Turin from Brescia which gave ground for apprehending that in consequence of the insur- rection which broke out there that city was in ruins. The resistance was so desperate that every street, and almost every lane, was separately attacked. The citadel, according to this account, continued to fire upon the town during the' 24th and 25th, but on the 26th it was taken by storm, and the garrison put to the sword. The revolt at Bergamo, though, serious, was repressed in two days by an overwhelm- inn- force. Asti, Cunco, Alessandria, Vercelli, and Castle, have openly avowed their opposition to the terms of the armistice. Advices from Turin of the 4th bring intelligence from Genoa to the 2nd. After a murderous struggle between the troops and the people, which lasted the whole day, Ge- neral Asarta, the governor, capitulated. The military were allowed to march out of the town with the honours of war. No troops remained in Genoa. Major-General Dabormida and Count Revel have left Turin for the Austrian head- quarters as plenipotentiaries.
H GERMANY. BI-'RT/IX ApRIL 3.—The Frankfort Deputation had their audience with the King to-day at noon. His Majesty answered pretty much in these ttrms Gentlemen,- The message of which you are the bearers has moved me deeply. It has°made me turn my gaze to the King of kings, and the sacred individual duties which rest upon me as a king, and one of the most, powerful German princes. A glance in that direction, gentlemen, makes the eye clear, and the heart firm. In the resolution of the German National Assembly which you, gentlemen, bring me, I recognise the vote of the representatives of the German people. This call gives me a claim, the value of which I appreciate. It demands, if I obey it, immeasurable sacrifices from me. It imposes the heaviest duties upon me. The German National Assembly has relied upon me in preference to all others, when the foun- dations of the unity and power of Germany are to be laid. I am proud of their confidence; assure them of my grati- tude. I am ready to prove by deeds that the men are not mistaken who place confidence in my devotion, my loyalty, my love for our common German fatherland. But gentle- men, I would not justify their confidence, I would not act up to the desires of the German people, and would not establish German unity, were I, in violation of sacred rights and my own express and solemn declarations, to adept a resolution which must have the niost important consequences for the crowned, heads, the princes, and the free towns of Germany, and the tribes of our great race they govern, without their free consent. It is now the turn of the separate German States, in a combined deliberation, to examine whether the constitution promises to be as beneficial to each of them individually as to the whole; and whether the rights which it confers upon me would enable me, with that strong hand which the office requires, to guide the destinies of our great German fatherland, and fulfil the hopes of its people. But of this Germany may rest assured, and do you, gentlemen, proclaim it through every valley If the sword or shield of Prussia are wanted to oppose external or internal foes, I will not shrink from my duty even though uncalled. J will, in such a case, tread the wonted path of my house and my people—the path of German honour and loyalty."
DENMARK. TTosfiJ;ties have commenced in earnest. There has been an engagement between the Prussian land forces and batte- ries, and the Danish fleet, in which an eighty-four gunship and a steamer belonging to the Danes have been totally destroyed.
NAPLES AND SICILY.
NAPLES AND SICILY. The total failure of the negotiations is confirmed. On Thursday, the 28th, at mid-day, hostilities would be com- menced. The Sicilians will attack the advanced posts of the Nea- politans on the 29th. The people of the country, conducted by the priests and well armed, present themselves in consi- derable numbers for the combat; the actions of a popular club, conducted by Stabile, a man equal to the times, are of great influence also. The peasantry will attack only with the bayonet; their number is so considerable that they will exterminate the Neapolitans. We are to have three English steamers, with a commodore and his two lieutenants, all armed, with English sailors, officers, and marines. Theso ships are promised all the prize money they can get. Tho Dutchess of Monteleone and all the aristocracy of Palermo are working at the trenches. The French fleet, and, I believe, the English,will leave to-morrow. According to the Naples correspondent of the Time?, It was known that General Filangeri had abundance of steam- ers in port at Messina, and that on the morning of the 30th it was probable he would appear before Palermo. I cannot say exactly what force the General has at his command I do not suppose it exceeds 12,000 men; but reinforcements are going hourly down, and no less than three steamers towing a frigate, and two transports full of troops, have left Naples for Messina. The Prince proposes to land on the coast near Palermo, and to assault the city on one side, whilst his armed steamers attack it on the other. We shall soon see what the Palermitans are made of. No less than 60,000 people, men, women, and children, have worked at the temporary fortifications, and perhaps as many as 15,000 to 20,000 are under arms." Arrangements are being made at Naples for supplies for a six months' campai-ii. On the commencement of hostilities we shall hear of the Calabrias revolting again.
HUNGARY. VIENNA, MARCH 31.-The news respecting Bern's defeat has not gained credit here. A letter has, however, just reached, which puts the matter beyond all doubt. After Bern had defeated the Russians, and completely sacked and ruined Hermandstadt, he quitted it. The statement that he had been forced into Wallachia proves to be incorrect, as he was on his way to Cronstadt when he suddenly found himself opposed to from 30,000 to -10,000 Russians, who had entered Transylvania, it is supposed, by tlie Turzburger pass, east of the Rothenthurm defile. The conflict was short, but most sanguinary. The Honveds took to their heels, but Bern's Polish and our Viennese legions were. annihilated. The five Polish officers of rank who were hanged were Prince Waroniecki, Wrouski, Bilski, Dumauski, and Podoletzki. Bern escaped, and it is reported was already, on the 18th instant, at Debreczin. APRIL 2.—A strange rumour, < yet circulated with much confidence, prevails, that the Russian troops have completely evacuated the imperial towns, and even given up by Cron- stadt.
IRELAND. DEATH OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC PRI.MATr,- DUBLIN, SATURDAY.—The Most Rev. Dr. Crolly, the Roman Catholic Primate, expired yesterday, in Drogheda, after an attack of cholera of nine hours' duration. The deceased prelate was highly esteemed by men of all religious and political persuasions, being ever remarkable for Christian liberality towards his Dissenting fellow-countrymen, and love of peace and order. He was about seventy years of age, but from active habits and strong constitution looked to be much less advanced in age. OPENING OF THE COMMISSION. The commission was opened this day before Mr. Justice Jackson and Mr. Justice Moore. The former learned judge, • in the course of the charge to the grand jury, very briefly referred to the case of Mr. Duffy, merely stating that as the bills had been already found they had nothing whatever to do in the matter. No day has been fixed for the trial, but it is generally believed that it will not commence before Tues- day morning. Mr. Duffy's health has been materially bene- fitted by his transference from the gaol of Kilniaiiiiiain to the Richmond Bridewell. Mr. Corry Connellan, private secretary of Lord Clarendon, has been served with a sub- poena to attend the court on Tuesday next. Lord Clarendon is not expected to arrive in Dublin until the week after next. THE WRITS OF ERROR.—THE QUEEN V. SMITH O'BRIEN AND OTHERS. About the 10th of May William Smith O'Brien, J. B. M'Manus, and Patrick O'Donohue, convicted of high treason at Clomnel, will be removed to London, for the purpose of having the writs of error, taken on their behalf, argued before the House of Lords. No doubt an earlier day would have been selected, but there has been an unwillingness to fix any time for the purpose during the ensuing Easter term, because such an arrangement would necessarily withdraw 0 t the English judges from the business of their respective courts. An early day in the short vacation, between Easter and Trinity term, will be fixed for hearing the cases. THE CHOLERA. LIMERICK, APRIL 1.—As I sent you an authentic account of the state of things here, when the hand of God was laid upon us in anger, I feel it a bounden duty to inform you, 11 y with devout gratitude to Ilini,-that now, in mercy, he is causing the scourge we dreaded to disappear. In my last communication, I intimated that there was hope that the virulence of the cholera in this city had already begun to lessen. Very happy am I tcutell you that, since that time— with the exception of but a day or two—the pestilence h:is. been gradually, but very perceptibly, decreasing-. Through the continuance of the Divine compassion towards us, I trust that we may, before very long, have to report that the city is entirely free from the destroyer. Not more than about some fifteen or sixteen cases, I believe, occurred yes- terday, in the whole place.
FATAL ACCIDENT TO A CLERGYMAN.—On Thursday an in- quiry took place at Reading, before Mr. Morton, deputy-coro- ner for the borough, into the circumstances attending the death of the Rev. John Lawson, rector of Sherborne, Hants. The rev. gentleman, who had arrived by railway at the Reading station, was, in company with his wife, proceeding along one of the streets leading from the entrance to the railway station. While passing one of the dwelling-houses, an iron wicket-gate, belonging to an adjacent entrance way, which had been taken off, was resting on the pavement, the protruding hinge of whit h caught a rug which the deceased was carrying on his arm. when the gate fell on his ankle, inflicting a frightful gash, and causing the blood to flow profusely. The sufferer was taken to the hospital, where the wound was bandaged up, and }H was afterwards removed to the Great Western Railway Hotel, where he soon afterwards died.
