THE BRITISH EXPEDITION. BEFORE SEBASTOPOL, Jan. 19. There have been severe and isuddeii alternations of f brnperature within these last few days, but the frost and ￼ have enabled the men to get up considerable sup- P?s of warm clothing, though the means at our disposal 0 not permit of the wood for huts being got up to the (ront. Men have been frozen in their tents, and several soldiers on duty in the trenches have been removed to bospital with severe frost bites, and suffering from the f ec's of the bitter cold winds and frost. When a path h as once been trodden through the snow, men and horses Can get along j much more easily than if they had to wade through mud or across a country in a state of semisolu- tlon; but temperature in such weather is very trying in a tent, particularly when there is a scanty supply of charcoal nd no wood- Many thousands of fine coats, lined with Ur and skins, of long boots, and of gloves, mits, and sacks have been served out to the men, but I know of regimental hospitals in the front where the sick men in Wet marquees have only one blanket to lie upon at this very date, if the word of the regimental surgeons and the evidence of one's eyesight are to be believed. The report Of the commissioners who have been sitting here will atonish the world if it be founded on the testimony of the "'Itnesses examined by them, and it is likely, from the Character of the gentlemen employed by the Duke of New- elltle on this inquiry, that he will receive ample and tltlstvrorthwy information respecting the condition of our Slck and wounded men and the working of our medical ad- tnirl istration. The supplies of clothing distributed up to II. date do not suffice by any means for the requirements VI 'he troops. A few days more well employed may, how- ever, enable our troops to clothe themselves. One cannot but regret that the articles which arrived in Balaklava in the beginning of January were not sent from England so as to reach us in the month of November. "herever the troops went these articles would have been required in a winter campaign, and we are almost inclined to regret the victory of the Alma, which bred in us such overweening confidence and blinded us to the necessity of aking the most ordinary precautions to save the lives of the men who won it from the effects of a Crimean winter. or myself, I must say one of the most melancholy sub- j. ects for reflection in the world, is the sight of our present army. It consists of officers, men, and regiments almost new to this campaign. The generation of six months ago has passed away; generals, brigadiers, colonels, captains, and men, the well-known faces of Galiipoli, of Bulair, of Scutari, of Varna, of Aladyn, of Devna, of Monastir-aye, even of the bivouac at Bouljanak, have changed; and there is scarce one of the regiments once so familiar to me which I can recognize now save by its well-known Ilurnber. What a harvest Death has reaped, and yet how many more are ripe for the sickle of the Great Farmer It is sad to meet an old acquaintance, for all one's re- miniscences are of noble hearts now cold for ever, and of friend after friend departed. And then comes,—" Poor fellow he might have been saved, if- Except Lord Raglan, Lord Lucan, and Sir R. England, not one of our Generals now remains of those who came Out here originally; the changes among our brigadiers colonels have been almost as great. Sir George ]Browne, the Duke of Cambridge, the Earl of Cardigan, Sir George Cathcart, Sir De Lacy Evans, General Tylden, General Strangways, Brigadier Bentinck, Brigadier Goldie, 13rigadier Buller, Brigadier Adams, Brigadier Torrens, ^r,gadier Cator, Lord de Ro-aU have been removed from ."e army by wounds, by sickness, or by death. And so it js the men themselves. Regiments which served th ?ough the cholera campaign of Bulgaria, and which have not been renewed by strong draughts, are now re- d ced to the number of strong companies, and every day war lasts under its present conditions has its own engthy obituary. ?On the 16th the thermometer was at 14 degrees in the corning and at 10 degrees on the heights over Balaklava. lrhe snow fell all night, and covered the ground to the ?epth of three feet; but the cold and violent wind drifted ￼ m places to the depth of five or six feet. In the morn- 8 1,200 French soldiers came down to Balaklava for not andshell, and the agility, good spirits, and energy "Ith which they ploughed through the snow were alike Admirable. The wind blew almost a gale, and the native horses refused to face it, but our poor fellows came trudg- Ing along in the same dreary string, and there was some- thing mournful in the very aspect of the long lines of "lack dots moving across the vast expanse of glittering snow between Sebastopol and Balaklava. When these dots came up you saw they had very red noses and very ?h'te faces and very bleared eyes; and as to their clothes, p a *taff would have thought his famous levy a corps d'?lite if he could have beheld our gallant soldiery.

Many of our men have been crippled by th cold, and of our officers, Captain Strong, of the QOldstrean, Guards, has been obliged to go down on leave, *ith0ne ?ot badly frostbitten. Our men have been seen about in the trenches and in the camps bare- foote d, Ind yet ankle-deep in snow. They could not get their f f611 oots and shoes on their swollen feet.

Over the ￼ ￼ the wT Oklng down from the heights towards the valley of the c ernaya, I could see those indefatigable Cossacke ridiae???? th'? row the snow over their picket- ground, Md 'ew waSson. were ete?Uog &lons from BB—BMBM—KBI^—^———B— Mackenzie's Farm towards the heights of Inkermann. A vidette or two were trotting up and down along a ridge, keeping a bright look-out on our movements, and through the glass we could see them flapping their hands under their arm-pits, as London cabmen do of a cold night when waiting for a fare. Towards Baidar pickets of the same active but cowardly gentry were moving along to keep themselves waim. We had no cavalry posts advanced towards them. Why not ? Because we could not send any out conveniently. Those rugged ruffians, in sheepskin coats and fur caps, mounted on ragged ponies, with deal lances and coarse iron tips, are able to hold ground in drifting snow and biting wind which our cavalry, such as they are, could not face. I could see the Russians quietly rebuilding their huts near Tchorgoun. The reconnissance had done them little harm in military point of view but, as we have now shut them out from the Inkermann road, they must have a difficult route to get over to the city. By cutting off the aqueduct, we gave them an excellent road. It does not seem to have occurred to any one that by turning on the water again, and by rebuilding the com- munication, we could deprive them of the same mode of communication. Of course our generals and engineers have thought of the plan, but there must be some good reason not known to a civilian for not carrying it into ef- fect We hear that Lord Lucan has addressed a strong letter to Lord Raglan on the subject of the employment of the cavalry, which has already eventuated" in the loss of about E40,000 in horse-flesh. The horses have been used as commissariat hacks, and, though they must be considered as representing upwards of Eloo each be- fore they can be replaced, the work has been allotted to them unsparingly. JANUARY 18. Lord Raglan came down to-day to Balaklava. General Airey also came down and inspected an attempt to pre- pare sleighs for carrying up shot to the front. Lord Raglan visited Lord Lucan, and went over the cavalry camp, which he had not seen since it was formed here, and I believe the result of the visit is that his Lordship will not allow the few remaining cavalry horses to be employed henceforth as commissariat ponies. The cavalry officers will be greatly pleased at this, as they were rather hurt at the ground on which they were employed on this service, which was in effect that they were of no further use in the war. Lord Raglan gave several orders calculated to pro- mote the comfort of the troops, and his unusual presence among the officers and men has been attended with the best effects, and has assimulated every branch of the service at Balaklava and at the depots. A thaw has set in. There is a great want of fuel and charcoal, and regiments which have sent down for charcoal have not been able to get any. The Emue arrived with the 14th Reginient. The roads to the camp are very bad owing to the thaw. As I write there is a heavy cannonade going on from the Russian against the French lines. It is understood that the verdict of the general court-martial on the man who was found out near the Russian lines, and away from his party, is favourable. It is not now necessary to allude any further to the circumstance. A man trying to desert the other day was shot by his comrade. Captain Macdonald, of the 93d Regiment, who up to this time has acted in the onerous and disagreeable posi- tion of Provost-Marshal, has been sent down to Scutari as Deputy-Assistant Adjutant-General. He is succeeded by Captain Johnstone, 41st Regiment. Colonel Haines has retired from the post, still more onerous and disagreeable, of Commandant of Balaklava. He is succeeded by Major Harding. Major Fellowes, Duputy-Assistant Quartermaster- General of Cavalry, has been despatched to Constantinople to buy horses for the transport department, and I believe it is intended to organize a field-train corps. He will be accompanied by Mr. Gloag, veterinary surgeon. This is a step taken rather late in the day, but still it is in the right direction. The instant the difficulties which we ex- perienced in Bulgaria presented themselves we should have foreseen the positive ruin of trusting our army in an enemy's country without proper transport. A few miles of bad ground and the want of means to get over it have cost us thousands of li ves.
LORDS ABERDEEN* AND PALMERSTON.—A leading article in the Times tells us that Lord Palmerston is a year older than Lord Aberdeen. The contrary is the fact. Lord Aberdeen was born January 18, 1784-Lord Palmerston Oct. 29, in the. same year. In September. 1796, they were both at Harrow. Lord Palmerston (then Mr. Temple) was head of the 2nd remove of the 4th form. Lord Aberdeen (then Lord Haddo) was 7th boy of the 3rd remove of the same form. THE "GREAT POWERS" or Euitopr.-The treaty of the Holy Alliancigned at Paris on the 26th Sept., 1815, led to the formation of a kind of European Areopao-us. It is this treaty which forms the origin of the title Great Powers, given exclusively from that time to Austria, France, Great Britain, Prussia, and Russia. The ostensi- ble object of this new alliance was to form, under the au- spices of the five great Powers, a perpetual system of in- tervention in the affairs of the different States of Europe, in order to guard the existence of monarchical institutions from any revolutionary coalition. When, however, in con- sequence of the revolution in Naples, in 1820, Austria, Prussia, and Russia decided on their armed intervention in the kingdom of Naples, Lord Castlereagh addressed, on the 19th of January, 1821, a circular despatch to all the Ilgnlt of England accredited to foreign Courts, disapprov- ing, in the name of his government, of that intervention. The British Cabinet also separated from the other great Powers at the congress of Verona in 1822, which had for result the armed intervention of France, under the sanction of Austria, Russia, and Prussia, in the internal affairs of i Spain. These two facts show that England, notwithstand- ing her title of great Power, finding herself in disaccord with her allies of the congress of Aix-la-Chapelie, confined herself to proclaiming her own principles before Europe, without breaking out into menaces such as are contained in the Prussian note of the 5th of January, wherein Baron de Manteuffel declares that the King, his master, will not hesitate at any sacrifice or any danger, if the position of Prussia as a great Power be mellaced.-Constitutionnel. ANGLO-FRENCH ALLIANcE.There has been for cen- turies a French and English alliance in the regions of science, and, such a beginning once made, art, and even literature must sooner or later come in. This, however, is the last domain that will be conquered from the old worldofexetusionat.d prejudice. As a whole the two nations do not yet understand one another's minds, or one another's tastes and the wonder would be if they did, considering how lately it was that the English in general, believed that all Frenchmen were always engaged in either dancing or cutting off people's heads, while the French conceived of us always eating raw beef, or drowning our- selves in despair at our fogs. We know a lady still living, who gives out very confidently that all French people are frivolous and she evidently supposes all the men of that nation to be powdered and spindle-shanked, and all the women pattering about in hit»h-heeled shoes. In the same way, we find one popular French writer describing the three sons of Sir Thomas Somebody as Sir William, Sir Henry, and Sir John; and another representing (in fiction but gravely) Wellington as dissatisfied with all his honours —with even being made Duke of York, till the crowning glory of being appointed Lord Mayor of London was shed upon him. There is more of this ignorance remaining in both countries than it is at all gratifying to anybody's complacency to be obliged to admit. The commercial point of view seems to us the most important of all, in regard to the Anglo-Frencli alliance. The scientific men of the two countries will always be comrades. Their alli- ance is safe enough but they are few and above the heads of many. In the needs and pleasures of the multitudes of both nations lies the broad ground of union which is least likely to be broken up by political accidents.— Westminster Revieic. AN ASSURANCE; OFFICE AND ITS MANAGEMENT.—A most singular denouement has lately been made with regard to the affairs of a thriving assurance office. It seems, from the report of the shareholders' committee, that the com- pany has been brought into difficulties by a species of mismanagement more monstrous and glaring than has been heard of for many years. The late manager of this unfor- tunate concern commenced at a salary of E600 a year, and for the last twenty years of his life received £ 2,400 an- nually. Having no one to check him in his movements, lie set down every year as "profit" large sums which ought to have been laid by as a reserve to meet future liabilities. The shareholders were year after year receiving enormous dividends and allowing "bonuses" out of money which ought to have been invested at interest, By this plan an erroneous idea of the value of the shares got abroad, and though only E12 were originally paid on them, they have actually commanded a price as high as £ 90 in the market, and this at a time when it would have been a good bargain to pay JE20 or £ 30 to get rid of them. It is stated that for a number of years the manager was in the habit of di- viding into two portions the amount by which the year's income exceeded the disbursements. Three-fifths of it were classed as "profit," to ibe given to the shareholders, and two-fifths were set by as reserve. The impropriety of this proceeding was pointed out by the actuary many years ago, but without his knowledge the manager persisted in the course he had been adopting, and the consequence is a ruinous loss upon the shareholders. PUBLIC INCOME AND EXPENDITURE IN 1854. An ac- count of the net income and expenditure of the country, for the year ended the 5th of January, 1855, &c., was issued on Saturday. It hence appears that the gross total income amounted to S-56,737,132, and the expenditure to zC,59,946,192 thus exhibiting an excess of expenditure over income amounting to £ 3,209,059, Of the income the following are the principal items, viz.:—Customs, £ 20,777,714; Excise, £ 16,120,843; Stamps, X7,078,001 taxes (laud and assessed), £ 3,040,548; Property-tax, £ 7,456,025; Post-office, £ 1,288,233 and Crown lands, £ 271,571. The principal items of the ex- penditure include 127,726,960 for the interest and manage- ment of the funded and unfunded debt; X2,014,543 for the Civil List, salaries, allowances, pensions, and diplomatic and judical establishments (the Civil List" proper, figuring for £ 400 382); and X30,204,148 for the army, navy, Ordnance, Caffre war, and civil services, including a vote of credit for the Russian war of £ 500,000. The army figured for 17,480,882, the navy for £ 12,182,769, and the Ordnance for £4,386,090. Another account shows that the balance in the Exchequer on the 5th of January inst., amounted to zC6,015,612, against SI,485,229, on the 5th of January, 1854. HOLLOWAY'S PILLS.-An Infallible Remedy for Coughs, Colds, and Asthmatic Complaints.-Mr. David Morris, a re- spectable farmer, residing at Capel Evan, near LIaiielly, had been a sufferer for many years from Chronic Cough and asth- ma, for which he hau tried remedies innumerable without ob- taining the least alleviation of his sufferings. At length he was recommended by Mr. Hughes, Druggist, of Llanelly, to I try Holloway's Pills, and this invaluable medicine has had such a wonderful effect on the disease that he is now com- pletely cwe4 and able to ftilw his ayocation on the farm.
I REVIEW OF THE BRITISH CORN TRADE. I From the Mark Lane Jbxpress. I Tempestuous weather, with periodical intervals of calm and sunshine, seem best to represent the late aspect of the London Corn Market. On Monday last, the trade clouds gathered once more, and the scene of the loth ult was well nigh re-enacted. The prices of Wheat—if fixed prices could fairly be named—nearly reached the point of depression they then exhibited, while the state of "suspension" was equally clear. Without any further alarm on the score of the cry Peaee peace and with only a moderate accession of English samples, the arri- val of a good part of the expected Baltic supplies certain- ly either influenced the millers' fears, or presented them with a good opportunity to come in favourably and sel- lers of English Wheat found that to meet the views of the trade it was indispensable to give way for new Wheat to the extent of 3s. to 4s per qr., and with his readiness to yield, the Essex and Kc-ntish stands could not be tho- roughly cleared. Factors well assured that in such a state of things it w.,uld be useless to attempt forcing rates of foreign, ar.d confident generally that it was better to wait, or even place in granary, very little business was transacted, and the samples of fine old qualities were held at nearly the former prices. The millers, under these circumstances, were conside- rate enough not to alter the nominal value of Flour, no doubt believing the depression to be only temporary, and the day to be entirely their own though some were wil- ling to accomodate the public with a moderate decline, the holders of Norfolk being, as usual, the first to oblige, some sales being made at 59s. The ruling article, Wheat, had its legitimate influence over the value of all Spring Corn and in the case of foreign Oats, with their relatively high value, and the large supplies reported, together with the belief that plenty of Irish were nigh at hand, dealers and consumers, who were only in moderate attendance, were enabled to purchase at a reduction of 6d. to Is. per qr. Barley, notwithstanding its comparatively low rates, was very difficult of disposal, and malting qualities were reduced fully Is. per qr., while the lower kinds, from a bountiful supply of foreign, partook of a still greater de- preciation in value. Beans and Peas of all kinds were also in plenty, and in spite of the severity of the weather, could not be sold freely, even by an acceptance of Is. to 2s. less money. The country markets generally seemed taken by sur- prise at the discouraging accounts from Mark Lane, and scarcely any of them partook of the like prostration, though the influence of high prices upon a reduced com- mercial activity was perceptible. At Liverpool, on Tuesday, a check was given to busi- ness by the London reports. Holders were disinclined to press sales of anything, with small arrivals and dimi- nished stocks; but those who yielded—and they were only the holders of new Wheat anù Flour-submitted 3fl. to 4d. per 7Olbs. on the former, and Is. to 2s. per sack on the latter. Barley, Oats, Oatmeal, and Indian Corn were all rather lower; but Egyptian Beans receded fully to 2s. j per qr. At Hull, on the same day, the farmers were taken aback at the London reports, and generally tied up their samples for "uppish" markets but those resolved to sell, found they could not realize without a reduction of 3s. to 4s. per qr. The Leed's report, of the same day, is a fac-simile of Hull. At Lynn they felt the depressing influence more severe! but their prices being relativelv higher, it was only an accomodating descent towards the London level. On Wednesday, with small additions of English sam- ples of Wheat, but with a great increase to the foreign arrivals, tbe London trade, after remaining some time in a meditative posture, took heart, and at the close of the day, as on the 17th ult., many English samples left un, sold were cleared off at better rates than were previously obtainable and more favour was shown towards the holders of foreign, some sales being effected at improved prices. No other grain but Wheat then showed anv signs of improvement and a plentiful accession of Irish Oats, as well as a large increase of foreign supplies being added to Monday's overplus stock, a considerable show of greatly-varied qualities was presented to buyers, without finding much inquiry indeed, the unusual severity of the season has induced some omnibus proprietors to cease running their vehicles regularly, the race through the snow being without a prize while others, by raising the rates, have increased the number of foot passengers, and, finding this detrimental, feel little induced to come boldly to market, and take advantage of the liberal supply, es- pecially as Barley is proportionably cheaper, and getting more into use as horse food. The same causes operate un- favourably on the prices of Beans and though Barley and Peas ought to be dearer from these considerations, the good crops of the former, and plentiful foreign sup- plies of both, kept prices down and made sales diffi- cult. The Scotch markets have felt the effect of the Monday's reports from London. At Edinburgh, on Wednesday, there was a plentiful supply from the farmers, and home-grown Wheat receded 3s. to 4s. per qr., with 600 qrs. left unsold but foreign samples only slightly participated in the decline. Barley, Oats, and Beans were Is. lower. At Leith, on the same day, the maiket exhibited pre- cisely the same features as at Edinburgh but prices were relatively above London, ranging for Danish Wheat to 72s.; Stettin, 76s. Rostock,80s At Glasgow there was but a small attendance, and prices of Wheat were 2s. to 3s. less but Wolcast Wheat is there quoted at 80s. Danish, 74s. Egyptian, 59s. and good qualities of old were in fair request at former rates. At Birmingham, on Thursday, wit), a small supply of Wheat, business was slack at Is. decline. Spring Corn unaltered. The Irish markets generally have presented a steady appearance, with unaltered prices for all grain. Dublin was rather easier for second quality. Wheat, best fine, was without any abatement of value. On Friday's market scarcely any additional samples of English Wheat appeared but there was a further good arrival of foreign cargoes. The improved tone of Wed- nesday was confirmed, and scarcely so many samples were exhibited, the great bulk of the late supplies having been ordered to granary, it being useless to press sales without intending to make sacrifices for which no necessity ap- peared to exist. The general conditioi) of the new Wheat was of an average fairness, and with exposure to the pre- sent drying winds, it will soon become much improved. Many of these cargoes being on millers' accounts the sam- ples were not exposed. The supply of English Barley was good and though there was no pressure from foreign arrivals, the trade was slack. A further arrival of foreign Oats appeared, without any more Irish. The late reduc- tion in price, however, together with the limited stock of dealers; and the certainty that most of the sources of sup- ply are stopped by frost, led to a fair but quiet business on previous terms. Beans and Peas remained dull. The general tone of the foreign markets, both for Wheat and Spring Corn, has been firm without animation, more especially at Hamburg; but the present comparatively high rates have made speculators cautious as to future operations. In France prices have been tending upwards and the superfluity of subscriptions for the recent loan will put Government in a fair way to make purchases, if required, in our own ports, should any panic again occur to depress our markets. On the whole, we rather expect fluctuating prices, and the tendancv up or down must greatly depend on the issue of of our present struggle with Russia. Maya strong handed Ministry lead us shortly to a safe and honourable peace. Till then, the high prices now ruling whenever there are good supplies will more or less enable buyers to secure some advantage to themselves and on the other hand, when these supplies are scanty, sellers will reasonably seize their opportunity for a propor- tionate enhancement. But it must be remembered that peace itself would not immediately unlock the storehouses of the Euxine and Danube and the providing of tran- sports for the vast armaments of France and England would make such a demand for shipping, that the rates of freight alone would be a serious addition to the prices free on board; while the consequence of a protracted and general European war would be fearful to contemplate. The loss of the" Mercury," freighted with 200 tons of Cloverseed, from Bordeaux, and the appearance of a few country buyers desirous to get into stock, kept a firmness in the Seed Market, and some business has been effected at folly the previous rates for red Cloverseed. Rapeseed has been scarce, and a shade higher. Hemp- seed firm. Mustard, Canary, &c., without change. At Liverpool, on Friday last, the foreign arrivals were good, especially of Indian Corn and Flour. Trade generally was very inactive, and buyers scarce. Retail sales of Wheat were made at a trifle less money. Oats hung heavily on hand, Barley, Beans, and Peas Is. lower. India Corn 6d. per qr. cheaper
REVIEW OF THE FOREIGN CORN TRADE. On account of the severity of the weather in the North of Europe there has been little activity in any branch of the Corn trade; and that will continue to be the case until open water at all the Baltic ports take place. Meantime, from the shipments having been made close up to the com- mencement of the frost, there is not any likelihood of the stocks accumulating materially and when spring ship- ments commence, the quantity on hand is not likely to be lirge. At Rostock, on the 24th ult., very little Wheat was coming in from the farmers, as they had previously sold freely, and did not appear in want of cash. Good qualities of red lvheat cannot be quoted under 67s. per qr., 621bs., free on board for spring shipment. The business in wheat at Hamburg, on the 30th ult. was entirely confined to the demand for the consumption of the place 601bs. Mecklenburg was worth 658, 6d., and fillbs. up to 67s.; 591bs. Ilolstein, 61s. per qr.—all per 4801bs. free on board. For spring shipment, 611bs. Danish Wheat was offering at 63s. per qr.; Danish barley, 531bs., was procurable at 28s. per qr., and 381bs. Danish Oats at 23s. to 24s. per qr. Eyder middle Beans might be bought at 38s. 6d. per qr. free on board in spring. The frost continues to be very severe at Rotterdam, and no purchases of grain are made except for home con- sumption. Farmers are there reluctant sellers, entertain- ing a hope that prices are still to be enhanced. There are several inquiries for fine white Zealand Wheat, and higher raks would be paid for distant deliveries; but no one seems to sell on such conditions. Beans were scarce and wanted; good useful ticks could not be obtained under 39s. to 408. per qr. free on board, to be shipped at first open water. The business transacted in floating cargoes has been limited for want of supplies. Saide Wheat is in demand at 51s to 52s. per qr., cost, freight, and insurance in- cluded, for arrived cargoes. Egyptian Barley commands 27s. per qr. free on board at Alexandria; and Barley at Sulonica as much. A cargo has been sold at 23s. 6d., cost, freight, and insuraance included, arrived off the coast. A cargo of Egyptian Beans on passage has brought 36s. per qr., cost, freight, and insurance included. The arrivals off the coast for orders consist of four cargoes of Wheat from Alexandria, two from Bilboa, and two of Beans from Alexandria-all of which had pleviously been disposed of. The French markets were not so buoyant, by the last advices, as in the beginning of last week. At Paris the four first marks of Flour were sold at 85 to 86 francs the 159 kilos. and good marks were obtainable at 82 to 84 francs. The sales of the day amounted to 2,827 quintals, amongst which there were 2,364 q. for future delivery. The stock at the Halle was reduced to 3,587 quintals. The thaw which took place on the 1st inst. pre- vents deliveries, from the unfavourable state of the roads, and Wheat was offered in limited quantities. Prices were steady. In some departments there have been incessant rains. The tendency of prices was generally downwards, I _1:11 and, if the weather becomes milder, oener suppueo win be brought forward. The recent prices of Flour have commanded the attention of millers in Lorraine and Normandy, and from thence supplies have been obtained and this circumstance tends to cause a weakness in the market for all sorts of Fiour at the moment at Paris. From the Danish Islands their advices report an in creased confidence as to future prices, and quotations for Wheat are above the level of our present rates, orders somewhat below them being without efhet. At New York, on the 16th ult., they quote the money maiket easier. Flour had declined a little, viz 12c. per brl. common superfine, 8-1a.; regular Western Canal, 8J to 9d. fancy brands and Ohio, 9i to 9!d. extras, 9| to 12d. Canada, in bond, 9d. extra duty paid, 9i; to lOd. Southern, superfine, 9 to 91;d. per brl. Wheat was in small supply, but inactive. Lower prices would have been taken — the no-ninal value of common red, 185c.; prime, 210c. common white, 210c. prime, 225c. and Genese, 250c. per bushel. Indian Corn, 1 c. per bushel lower; all qualities, 104 to 105 c. per bushel. The new Southern comes in fine condition. Rye dull at 135 c. per brl. Freights a little firmer, 4d, to 4d. per bush, for Grain, and Is. 6d. per brl. Flour, for Liverpool, with little doing Exchange depressed at I06 to 1 07 At New Orleans, the nmiket is reported so bare of Wheat that prices are not quoted. Flour has ruled dull; about 3,000 brls. of superfine sold at 8d. 62c. and 1,600 extra at 9d. 25c. per brl. Some extra kinds sold at 9d. to 9d. 25 c.. The whole business of the Wheat consisted of about 9,500 brls. The total stock of foreign Wheat and Flour now in the kingdom is estimated at about 300,000qrs.; last year it was computed at 1,250,000 qrs.

Accordii-.g to some statistics furnished by the American Railway Tones, there are in the United States 4440 railways 21310 miles of «huh are in operation 16,975 miles in course of coistructior, the cost being 621,316,308 dollars. LORD RAGLAN.—A correspondent of the Recoi d says I understand, from good authority, that the iininediate cause of the expulsion of the correspondent of the limes from the Crimean camp (which occasioned the recent outbaiat of its malice against Lord llaglan) was tilis. The correspondents of all the newspapers were summoned to head-quarteis, and quietly requested to abstain from furnishing information which might prove, as had already been the case in some instances, of service to the Russians, and therefore injurious to the ariiiy. All the correspondents, except Mr. Hussel1, promised aequiesenee but he asserted his independence of control, and upon being reminded that, whilst in the canip, he was under military subjection, became so insolent, that he was ordered out of it forthwith." AN ATTEMPT TO BIUNE A VICE-CKANCELLOU.— When the case of Shumm v. Hobbs" came up iecently before Vice-Chancellor Kindersiev, the learned judge remarked that he had received two letters from two of the parties in- terested, who are ladies, offering him a handsome present in the event of his deciding in their favour. lie was astonished at any one taking such a course-indced it was almost too ludicrous to be believed but he should hand the letters to the registrar, with liberty to the other parties in the cause to take copies of them, as was usual in such instances. EXCESS OF EXPEXDITUBE FOR THE NAVY. —The sum which will be required to be voted by the House of Com- mons to defray the excess of the naval expenditure beyond the grants for the year ended the 3bt of March, 1854, is stated, by the ofifcers of the Admiraltv, to be £ïï ,OÐÐ. The estimate for the excess of expenditure for the year ending the 31st of March, 1855, i-i stated to amount to £ 1,938,103. This sum includes the following main iteins-viz., c55o, 000 for additional supplies of salt meat and other provi- sions, to make good the extra consumption of the army and navy; £ 88,500, for extra wages in dockyards and fac- iorip< • f988,429, for naval stores, purchase of machinery for steamers, and for ships built or purchased E56,800, for new works in the dockyards of Chatham, Stieerness, Portsmouth, and Pembroke, the victualling establishments -sf iior>tf,irfl &c the medical establishments at Deal and Yarmouth, and the Admiralty offices, &c.; X20,000, for miscellaneous services, such as the pilotage of ships in the Baltic, the passaae-money of naval officrrs, and the raising of \"llluntters j £224,)00, for the conveyance of troops to the east (army and ordnance department) and Y,8,500, lor prisoners of war.

It shows that the gross en(jiture amounted to ?7,197,804, being an excess of ?i.???r the grants for the year 1853-54. The excess ott/, < 49 for wages to the seamen and ma- items rines £858978 for victuals for the same, ?141,011 for the £ 3 500 for the Naval Coast Volunteers, ￼ the scientific branch, 1708,402 for wages to ar- 1 Unloved in Her Majesty's establishments at home, 1 ?4 for wages to those employed abroad; ?910,053 ? ..?1 ?orcs for the building and repair of ships; 243,126 for new works, &c., in the yards; ad ?33.661, for medi- cines, o c The items of the non-effective services include 6% 331 for halfpav, £ 465,572 for military pensions and al- lownces, and CIfO,978 for civil pensions and allowance! The sum charged for the conveyance of troops amounts to f in-* Rp,5 and that for the Post-office department (Packet service) to £ 831,385. The excess of £ 77,099 having been temporarily disbursed out of the supplies for 1854-55 re- mains to be made good by an additional grant. EXTRAORDINARY ESCAPE FROM GLOUCESTER BRIDE- WELL -A female prisoner, confined in the Gloucester Bridewell, made her escape from the prison on Tuesday night in a most extraordinary and daring manner. The prisoner was an Irish woman named Ann Laughton, and had been committed on the previous day for trial for shoplifting. The female prisoners sleep in one room, and about seven o'clock one of them had her infant brought to her, when she asked leave to take the chud down to warm it at the fire. This was allowed, and it would seem that at this juncture the prisoner Laughton managed to step out of the women's bed-room, and by some means to get upon the roof of the Bridewell, and thence to the roof of the gaol, where she was seen by people passing in the street, and thus it was that her escape was discovered. A crowd of people collected in the street watching her movements, and before the police could follow her she had crept down a wall by the side of a spout and dropped into an old burying-ground at the back of the prison, and actually got clear of the town. Tuesday night was one of the coldest nights of the severe frost, and the wind was excessively keen, but the woman was only half-dressed, and had neither shoes nor stockings on her fect It was ascertained in the course of the night that she had called at a lodging-house where her husband was, but had left again immediately, and next day she was recaptured near Newnham, about eleven miles from Gloucester. SUFFERERS FROM ASTHMA, HOARSENESS, COMMON COUGH, OIL HOOPING COUGH, PARTIAL Loss OF YOICE, OR INCIPIENT CONSUMPTION, MAY BE SPEEDILY RELIEVED AND CURED BY THE USE OF W OOLLEY S PECTORAL CANDY." The following extract from a letter addressed by Mr. T. F. Ker (late of the Manchester Royal Infirmary) to the proprietor of WOOLLEY'S PECTORAL CANDY, will be read with interest. ] had the pleasure of hearing one (,f my customers the other day speak very highly of your in- valuable Woolley's Pectoral Candy. He said that he had been very much distressed with a troublesome cough for many years, and had tried most of the patent medicines advertised in the newspapers for coughs, coids, &c., but, he rearet'ed to state, without finding any bendicial effects from them. Fortunateiy, however, he received a handbill concerning WonDey's Pectoral Candy at his house one day after reading it he resolved upon making a final trial for the cure of his cough, by purchasing a box without de:ay he did so, and the result of which, he happily re- marke d was permanent relief after having used the second box. These fine lozenges may be pnrchased at any respectable Chemist's shop, in boxes at Is. lid. and 2s. 9d.
