"TEAS AT WHOLESALE PRICES, CAIfBIAGE 1'KEK, No. KJC3XBBSBUBY, CHEAP SIDE. rjpHE heading of our Circular sufficiently indicates the basis of our system, viz.—that of supplying the Public with Teas and Coffees | ai Wholesale Prices for Ready Money. at Wholesale Prices for Ready Money. This announcement may appear somewhat presuming and the question may naturally arise—How one party can sell at Wholesale Prices, 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 v most spacious in London, and affords the Greatest Facilities for the most Extensive Transactions, and is entirely unencumbered with those merciless expenses inseparable from the show of a Retail Shop, and for which indirectly the purchaser is taxed. Our business, the parent of many branches, extending throughout the United Kingdom, is of such magnitude, that our purchases are necessarily large, and we thus derive every advantage the market affords." It will, therefore, be seen that we are in a position to supply the pubile on the best and most economical terms—in fact, to supply at first hand by which all intermediate profits are saved. In quoting a partial selection of our prices, we have appended a few recommendatory remarks, and we wish particularly to be understood as holding ourselves responsible for each character so appended. We mention this, in consequence of the too frequent practice of late—particularly in the Tea Trade-of ljulling the public with alluring titles-and while some arc distributing their 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, 4s. 9d.: Best Boots, Ss. 6d.; and Best Coats, a Guinea. It is, in point of fact, pretty candid confession that they do not keep the finer descriptions of Tea. The following List is composed from the Latest and most Favourable Quotations in the Market, BLACL.

COFFEE. We wish to direct particular attention to Coffee, from the fact of our having, after great trouble and expense, succeeded in perfecting he machinery for roasting, which has never before been discovered. Letters patent are already taken out for the invention, which preserves the aroma, and removes that acidity, so frequently complained of by delicate persons. 8. d.

For example, we arc now selling Good sound Congou at 3s. per lb., which, after deducting the duty, leaves but 9icl. to remunerate the merchants and pay all expenses of importation— a price by which the importers must be great losers. Referring to the above list we venture to solicit a continuance of that support hitherto so liberally bestowed. Having now established one of the Largest Businesses in the kingdom, we refer with pride to the progressive increase during the last twenty years, proving that our System of Business, based on liberal principles of commercial enterprise, and holding out unprecedented advantages, is fully appreciated. All orders are expected to b,- by a remittance or Post Office order or if a reference in London be made, payment on receipt and approval of the goods will be sufficient. Our Terms are Cash, and we seek remuneration only by magnitude .of business. Oar motto isSmall profits and qtiick returns." NOTE.—Teas are delivered carriage free to any part of England when the quantity ordered exceeds fix pounds, but the carriage of Coffee is not paid unless accompanied by Tea.

FRANCE. A considerable sensation has been created in Paris by a quarrel between the President of the Republic atid his cousin, Napoleon Bonaparte, late Ambassador at Madrid, who proceeded to the Elysee, and had an interview with the President. A violent scene took place, and after a great deal of recrimination on both sides, Napoleon suddenly called the President a bastard, and told him that he was not only a kite's egg put into the eagle's nest, but that the whole of the Bonaparte family knew him to be so. The President flew to his sword, and declared that he would immediately fight the slanderer; but the attendants interfered. Still the President insisted that the stain on his honour should be wiped out by a duel, and appointed two friends to make the arrangements on his side for a meeting. In the meantime, however, a Council of Ministers was called, and it was re- solved that the duel should not be allowed. M. Odillon Banot, and all the Ministers, declared that the President, as the first magistrate in the State, could not fight, and that such a thing could not be thought of. Accounts from the provinces speak with certainty of the triumph of the Bonaparte candidates, and of the little hopes of the Legitimists. A new section has sprung up among the friends of the 0 In Regency in opposition to M. Thiers. This faction is said to be directed by the widow of a celebrated general of tho Imperial army, who was raised to the dignity of marshal under Louis Philippe. A great deal is said of the exertions of the deserters of the Rue de Poitiers to return the Prince de Joinville for five or six departments. This new division is imputed to M. Thiers. An express mode of dealing with deputies who happen to be arrested in tumultuous crowds has been established. They are to be brought, not to prison, but to the President of the Assembly, whose recognisance of them will act as a libera- tion. The debate on the projects of law relative to the feto of May 4 was carried in the Ministerial sense by a majority of 380—that is, there will be no amnesty for the present. The anniversary of the proclamation of the French Re- public by the National Assembly was celebrated on Friday with great pomp, the President of the Republic assisting. The Journal des Debats publishes a letter from Toulon of the 2nd of May, which says :—" The fleet, with the second portion of the expedition to Civita Veechia, sailed last night. Among the steam-frigates which have on this occasion gone again to deposit at Civita Vecehia the men, horses, and bag- gage, which they have taken on board, there is one which will' go to sea again immediately, and it is supposed it will be the Panama. The Government has, it is said, sent orders for a steam-frigate, fully armed, being prepared for a secret and urgent mission, and the Panama is the only ship in the expedition that has her armament and artillery complete. Secret instructions have been given to Captain Belveze. It is vaguely rumoured that Ancona is the object of this mis- sion. It is reported that the army of General Oudiuot has met, if not with resistance, at least with some delay, on its way to Rome, in consequence of a bridge being destroyed; but it is not said that the Romans have stopped to exchange shots with our men."
GERMANY. The following resolutions were passed in the sitting of the Frankfort Parliament of the 30th ultimo :-— The German Parliament resolves, namely, "1. To pass a vote of censure upon the Prussian and Ha- noverian Governments for dissolving the respective Dicta of those States. "2. To summon the said Governments to issue at once its for another general election, 3. To express to the remaining legal organs the Parlia- ment's expectations that they will candidly, boldly, and without delay, inform the Government of the sentiments of the people. The general impression in Frankfort is, that Prussia will attempt a military coup d'etat against the National As- sembly. Besides the 8,000 Prussian troops stationed in and about Kreuznuch, 2,000 more have reached Men-tz. Indeed, Kiftylof~some'such Tblow being sfrucl?, that it has requested the Central Minister of Wav to dismiss all the troops belong- ing to countries which have not recognised the Constitution. The latter, in reply, stated that no one save himself had the right to dispose of the troops garrisoned in Frankfort, and he trusted that declaration would remove the apprehensions entertained by the Committee. Meantime extraordinary military precautions against disturbances are taken in the city both by day and night. The King of Wurtexnberg has, in his retirement at Lud- wigsburg, received several addresses from the city of Stutt- gardt, thanking him for his declaration of acceptance of the German Constitution.
PRUSSIA. BrmLIN, MAY !The dissolution of the Second Chamber necessitated the promulgation of a new electoral law. The 67th article of the Constitution says, livery independent Prussian, who has completed his twenty-fourth year, is en- titled to be an elector." Now, what does seihsistandigkeit mean ? says Herr ManteufFel. Henceforth, no Prussian shall be considered selhststandig who lias not an inde- pendent domicile." The principle of universal suffrage is thus cut down to the beads of families. The other alteration projected is still more important, and was framed for the ex- press pnrposO of excluding some of the most eminent men in the late Chamber and National Assembly. No candidate can be elected for a district where he is not domiciliated. How long a residence, and what other qualifications, I have not heard. But the reach of such a provision will be im- mense. Rodbevtus and Jacohy, leaders of the Centre-Left and Extreme Left, members for Berlin, come from East Prussia and Pomerania, where no Radical has a chance. On the other hand, eminent Conservatives, residing in demo- cratic districts, will be equally excluded; the restriction en 3 will disable the country from using its highest capacities in Parliament. The number of victims of the recent tumult who fell on C) Friday night by the fire of the military, or who hare since died of their wounds, is seven.
RUSSIA, AUSTRIA, AND PRUSSIA.
RUSSIA, AUSTRIA, AND PRUSSIA. It is beyond all doubt that Austria and Russia have en- tered into a close defensive alliance, by virtue of which the Cabinet, of Austria has solicited and obtained from that of St. Petersburg-h immediate and efficient military support. An army of 15,000 Russians is destined to perform this im- portant service; 100,000 men will at once enter the Polish and Hungarian territories of the Austrian empiro, and the remaining division will act as a reserve, to be employed as L circumstances may require. The Hamburgh Uorsenhallo has, under the head Posen, May 1, the following relating to the entry by the Russians into Austria:— The Russian army his marched from Poland to the south. The large encampment at Kirchdorf, which was formed at such an immense expense, has not only heon evacuated by the troops, but it is to be wholly broken up. The troops, who have for last fortnight been stationed in Kalisch, have received orders which made them break up suddenly, and proceed by forced marches to Cracow. Even the main body, under General Rudiger, which has hi- therto been stationed in Warsaw and its environs, has left suddenly for Cracow, leaving only an arriere guard of about 12,000 men, in a hastily-arranged encampment at Lowicz. The garrison of the capital has been replaced by some regiments from Modlin and the other fortresses of the country, and now lie either in the citadel of Warsaw or bivouac in the principal squares of the city. Several regiments of the St. Petorsburgh Guards are, however, expected here. The Emperor Nicholas was expected at Warsaw from Moscow. The palace of Kalisch has been prepared for his Majesty, who, it is said, intended going by Kalisch and Breslau to Olmutz, to visit- the Emperor of Austria." The Russian troops will enter Prussia and be conveyed by rail into the Austrian dominions.
HUNGARY. The Hungarian demands, as agreed upon by Kossuth, Georgey, Bern, and Dcmbrmski, are as follows :— 1. The recognition of the kingdom of Hungary in its ancient limits, including Croatia, Slavonia, and the military boundaries. 2. Union with Transylvania, as decided upon by the Hungarlaa Biet at its sitting last year. 3. General amnesty for ths whole of Austria, the immediate release of the October prisoners, and indemnities to the families of those who were murdered. "4. Transmission of all the Hungarian regiments serving in Italy and elsewhere throughout the empire to Hungary. 5. Recognition of the Hungarian constitution of 1848. "6. Hungary shall remain under the government of a Provi- sional Executive Administration, elected from among the Diet, until the hereditary succession shall have been legally restored, and the King who shall have been elected shall be crowned at Buda- Pesth, and swora to the Constitution. 7. Galicia shall stand in the same relation to the Austrian Federal State as that in which Hungary now staucls, and will stard under the name of the Polish kingdom of Gaiicia; it will, therefore, be linked to Austria only by a personal union, having its own army and its own finances. 8. The participation of Hungary in the Austrian national debt shall be decided by the Hungarian Diet by majority." The Russian auxiliaries are to enter the territories of Austria in feur columns, by Wallachia, the Bukowina, Lemberg, and Cracow. The continual retreat of the Aus- trian armies inspires the inhabitants of Vienna with the idea that the Hungarians will soon appear at their gates. No less than. 1,600 wounded were brought to Vienna on the 30th. It was stated that Raab had been evacuated by the Imperialists, the siege of Comorn finally raised, and the positions and entrenchments of the blockading forces given Z, up and destroyed. Kossuth, now formally installed in Pesth, has re-appointed the old magistrates, re-organised the National Guard, and proclaimed the independence of Hungary. COMPLETE EVACUATION OF HUNGARY BY THE AUSTRIANS. The Cologne Gazette states that the Austrian troops ex- perienced a defeat near to Atsch, and lost several cannon, and that General Welden has evacuated Hungary. The Magyars, to the number of 15.000 men, and 30 cannon, have penetrated into the district of Turocz, and possessed themselves of St. Martin and'Mossocz, and intend to cross the Wasp.
ITALY. Accounts from Rome state that the Romans were deter- mined to resist a Voutrance, and that the Government ex- pressed its determination to blow up the Vatican and St- Peter's, rather than yield the city to the French. The Roman Government had impeached the Governor and Commandant of Civita Vecchia, for not resisting the landing of the French expedition. Accounts from Naples of the 28th state that 4,500 men had left for the Roman frontiers to join the other forces al- ready there, and to march on Rome. The Austrians, also, had advanced into the Roman terri- tory. Accounts from Venice, dated the 23th ult., state that the cannonade had commenced on the side of the fort of Mai- ghera. A vigolous attack is shortly expected.
TUSCANY. FLORENCE, APRIL 24.—No answer yet from Gaeta. It would seem that the GRANAHNIRO ^—*■ -mwetui strong m toe affections oi the people to return to Florence without some external prop, and that he prefers relying upon the aid of foreign bayonets. We read in the Debats ;—" Pillage is brought to a system. It commenced with the public treasuries and with a forced contribution from the rich. On the 23rd ultimo the people carried off all the money found at the treasury, the munici- pality, and the custom-house. This proceeding commenced with sacking the citadel and taking away all the arms, even those belonging to the guards over the convicts. All the working men have now muskets, or pistols, or sabres. This first attempt by brute force having completely succeeded, and the public moneys not having supplied a sufficient sum, a contribution of 300,000 francs was decreed. The Chamber of Commerce, imperatively convoked by the command of the people, was constrained to divide this contribution be- tween the merchants and other persons of property. Never- theless, the Chamber exacted at first only 100,000 francs. It will require from 12,000 francs to 15,000 francs a-day to pay the populace, who no longer do any kind of work, pre- ferring to live at the expense of the other inhabitants."
AMERICA. The Europa arrived at New York on the 19th ultimo from Liverpool, Her advices from this side were deemed favour- able, and had a good effect generally on the New York mar- kets. The news, politically speaking, was considered as di- minishing the probability of a general European war..The commercial accounts were not encouraging as to priceq they produced, however, no sensible effect on quotations. The money market, was decidedly easier, caused bv the Europa's specie remittances, and further extensive accounts in gold coin expected to follow by succeeding steamers. Exchange on London was firmer, and had advanced to 107; on Bre- men, 77 to 77 i. The stock market was more buoyant, the European news having had a favourable influence upon the minds of operators, and an advance in stocks and shares was established. The weather remained unseasonably cold, and some severe snow storms were reported from Philadelnhia and other places. I The New York Herald publishes a list of vessels that had sailed from the United States for California up to the 17th of April, by which it appears that the total number of ships was 309, conveying 19,717 passengers by the various routes. The emigration was decidedly flagging, yet the Herald af- firms that on the rcecipt of the first large shipments of gold it would revive and become stronger than ever.
-<nr1/. SlTlniiil. Or In the ot all this distress, the Irish character peeps out in a singular result of-the neglect of the proverb which tells us that half a loaf is better than no bread. A corre- spondent of the Cork Constitution, who signs himself" An Impoverished Landlord," writes,— 0 The farms of Knucltavuhig, BiendhufFb, and Ballinavnhig, with others, are a portion of the property of Trinity College. They were held up to a very recent period by Mr. Stau^hton. That gentleman's term having expired, and he not wishing to pay the renewal fine, the lands were advertised for sale and, after some competition, were knocked down to Mr. Pope and Mr. Rice, of the locality. Mr. Pope held a large farm, in the townland of Knuekavuhig, from Mr. Staughton, on which resided a number of email holders and their labourers, previous to his becoming the actual lessee, in conjunction with MrvRice, of this college pro- perty. I, in the first place, then visited Mr. Pope and Mr. Rice, both of whom I saw; and they spoke as if they were completely irresponsible for the ejectments which had taken place on the pro- perty which was then theirs-how far they may prove correct I will endeavour to show. Having left Messrs, Pope and Rice, I proceeded towards Knuckavuhig, where I was unable to perceive aught but a number--a large number indeed—of unroofed cot- tages. I in vain inquired for those who once inhabited them and in this dilemma proceeded a little further on, when, to my sur- prise, 1 perceived a couple of sheds erected on the open highway, their existence being principally indicated by the smoke which issued from their many apertures. I approached them, and shall not soon forget the appalling picture of destitution and misery which here presented itself. Ahout four feet apart, on the public road, were erected two sheds, about five feet long and three feet
SAXONY. REVOLUTION IX DRESDEN. A revolution broke out in Dresden on the 4th instant, in consequence of the refusal of the Saxons to accept the Ger- man Constitution. The people attacked the palace and arsenal, and the troops and National Guards were called out. The former fired upon the latter, who thereupon, joined ih<? people. Barricades were thrown up, and the people were ultimately victorious. The King fled to Kiong.stcin. When the courier left the people were deliberating as to the pro- oriefy of appointing a Provisional Government. The rails Lad been torn up to prevent tho dispatch of troops from Leipsie. DASTZIC, APRIL 27.—A tremendous fire broke out here last night in a hemp, .flax, and tar magazine, and in a short time no less than twelve magazines were reduced to ashes. It was stopped short on one side by the river, but not before two bridges were burnt. The artillery and pontoneers were ordered out by the Governor, aud several magazines were blown up, in order to stop the further progress of the fire.
