Late nmd tmpmrtmut Foreign News
—Arrival of the Hibcmia,
Last week we gave, the laeteat news
from England, the dissolution of Sir Rob
ert Peel's Ministry and the organization
of a new cabinet under Lord John Rus
sell, with Lord Palmerston at the head ot
/oreign affairs} which was considered
highly unfavorable to an amicable adjust,
•sent of the Oregon question, ccniiitteritly
with the rights and dignity of the United
States. Subsequent accounts from the
East go to show that this item: of news
produced great excitement, with the ap
prehension of a speedy and opeii rupture
oetween the two countries 1ftie New
York papers spoke confidently of the
prospect of a war and the Mayor of that
city had recommended to the Common
"Council to fortify the oity in anticipation
of the event.
Scarcely had this got colJ, however,
when the Hibernia arrived, bringing news
that the assumption of power by Lord
John Russell was followed almost imme
diately by its abandonment nnd by the
re-insfaltalion of Sir Robt. Peel. Lord
Russel was unable to form a Ministry—
Lord Grey refusing to enter the Cabinet,
if Palmerston was to be Minister of For
eign Affaire. The resumption of power
by Peel had a magical effect in restoring
confidence in the commercial world, which
had been parlized by his abdication.
It is still said that the corn laws will
4te repealed but appears probable that, as
-a compromise, a duty of 6s. or 12*. per
quarter will be proposed, to be gradually
reduced until it expires.
The Presidents Message was received
at Liverpool and London, on the 6th De
cember. It was.regarded on the whole as
^'pacific, and treated by some leading
journals, with much fairness." But it is
proper that we should here remark that,
though immediate war i* nr.t probable,
we cannot count confidently^ upon a
continuation of peace, without a com
promise of our just rights and national
honor, which will be considered by every
true American, as far too high to purchase
it at.
The "Liverpool Times" says "One
cause, perhaps, why the Message has a
greeably disappointed speculation here is,
the well timed observations in which it
indulges respecting a liberal Tariff. If
Oregon is the bane, the prpoged reduction
of the Tariff is the antidote in the Presi
dent's message to Congress.
"Upon the whole then, if tha Message
has not given all the satisfaction in Eng
land which the friends and well vvihers
of America desire, it has a favorable point,
that free of trade and the pending triumph
of free trade principles will, in all proba
bility, be accompanied by a satisfactory
adjustment of that bone of content ion—the
Oregon. Polk and Peel agree as to the
necessity of the first—why nut as to the
last alternative?"
Still Later from Mcxleo— li
or llerrera.
The Ut S. brig Porpoise, from Vera
Cruz, brings news that Paredeslhad b'.en
completely successful in effecting a revo
lution in Mexico. The Capita] opened
its gates to him without striking a blow.
One of the ostensible motives foi exciting
the revolution was the fact that? Herrcra
had signified his willingness to bpen ne
gnciations with our government on the
subject of Texas. This aroused the army
and formed the principal basis oi the man
ifesto adopted by the garrison atTampico.
Paredas issued a pronuriciainentc, set
ting forth his plan for a new government
which was to convoke an assembly duly
elected by all the voters of the jstatcs, to
which all political powtfr would at once
be entrusted, while he would ccntent
himself with the "privilege of marching to
•the frontier to encounter the eij».mies of
fiheir] territory," Sic. Sic. Mt. Siidell,
American minister, was at Jalaipa, and it
was doubtful whether he woula: be per
mitted to open negotiations withj the new
government. I
Gen. II. S. Foote anjt J. W.
Chalmers, have been elected Sa&ators in
Congress by the legislature of Mississippi
—the former for the term of cix years,
and the latter for the unexpired term of
the Hon. Robert J. Walker.
