|Iu4-TIm rrot?(itl?B of Porlluitnl.
i Tbio evoot took place on Thursday, August 18.
Tbe ceremony la deecribed as more gorgeous than
baa attended the prorogation for the two previous
year*. The peers were all altired in their full
rubes, and the bishops with peers' rubes outside
of their cauunicals, all uf which made as fine a
how as could be produced in any cuuntry, to say
nothing of those where barbarism remains iu all
its splendor. Firing of guns and flourishing ol
trumpets announced the drawing near of majisty,
which dually entered, preceded by heralds with
tabards, and the otflcersof the royal household carrying
staves) the Duke of Wellington held the
wwonl of state sticking up in the air; the Marquis
ol Winchester wus .burdened with tiie cap of maintenance,
and the Marquis of l^ansdowne bore the
weight ot the crown on a crimson cushion, and the
1 Lord Chancellor, with a mace borne before him, he
himself having enough to do to carry the seal ui
state. Her majesty wore a splendid dress of wiiitc
and gold tissue, with a superb stomacher, necklace
and tiara composed of mairioiids. Prince Albert
wore a held-marshal's uniform and tbe order of tbe
garter, with a band of crape around his left arm.
Every thing having been got ready, the Speaker
of the House of Commons, in his full robes, appeared
at the bar accompanied by many members
of the House, and made his speech, telling what
Parliament had done, and asking the royal assent
to the bill of supply. Her majesty having assented

vaiiced to the loot of the throne, and, kneeling, presented
Iter majesty with a copy of the royal speech,
which her majesty read in a clear distinct voice, as
follows:
"My lordi atulKinllemeii: I have the satisfaction
of being1 able to release you front the duties of a laborious
session. The assiduity and care with which
you have applied yourselves to the business which
required your attention, merit my cordial appro:
bat ion.
! "The act for the better government of my Australian
colonies will, I trust, improve the condition
of those rising communities. It will always
be gratifying to me to Itc able to extend the advantages
of representative institutions, which form
the glory imd happiness of my people, to colonies
I inhabited by men who are capable of exercising,
with benefit to themselves, the privileges of freedom.
"It has aflorded me great satisfaction to give my
assent to the act which you have passed for the improvement
of the merchant naval service of this
country. It is, I trust, calculated to promote the
welfare of every class connected with this essential
I branch of the national interest.
"The act for the gradual discontinuance of interments
within the limits of the metropolis is in conformity
with those enlightened views which have
for their object the improvement of the public,
health. 1 shall watch with interest the progress of
measures relating to this important subject.
"1 have given my cordial assent to the act for the
extension of the elective franchise in Ireland. 1
look to the most beneficial consequences from a
measure which has been framed with a view to give
to my people in Ireland a fair participation in the
benefits of our representative system.
"1 have observed, with the greatest interest and
satisfaction, the measures which have been adopted
with a view to the improvement of the administration
of justice in various departments, and 1 confidently
anticipate they will be productive of much
public convenience and advantage.
"Gentlemen of die lioutt qf Common*: The improvement
of the revenue, and the large reductions
which have been made in various branches of expenditure,
have tended to give to our financial
condition stability and sccuiily. I ain happy to

jects from some of the burdens of taxation, without
impairing the sufficiency of our resources to meet
the charges imposed upon them.
"My Lordi and Gentlemen ; 1 am encouraged to
hope that the treaty lietwecn Germany and Denmark,
which lias been concluded at Merlin under
my mediation, may lead, at no distunt period, to
the restoration of peace ill the north of Europe. No
endeavor shall be wanting on my part to secure
the attainment of this great blessing.
"1 continue to maintain the most friendly relations
with foreign powers, and 1 trust that uothiug
may occur to disturb the general peace."1
have every reason to be thankful for the loyalty
and attachment of my people ; and while I ain
studious to preserve and to improve our institutions,
1 rely upon the goodness of Almighty God to
favor my ellorts and to guide the destinies of this
nation.
The Lord Chancellor, kneeling, then received
the copy of the speech from her majesty and her
majesty's commands on the subject of the prorogation.
Then rising and turning to the House, lie
said : "My lords and gentlemen, it is her majesty's
will and pleasure that parliament be prorogued till
the 16th of October next; and the parliament is,
accordingly, prorogued till the lath of October."
The Queen then rose and quitted the House, being
attended as ou her entrance.
Endofthe Gobham Case.?On Sunday, the 11th,
the Rev. G. C. Gorhani was inducted to the living
ofHrampford Speke.
1 mecxtatiok of Wine i hom Canada.?A vessel
has arrived in the Thames from Montreal, having
a large quantity of casks of wine, the produce of
southern Europe, on hoard, consigned, as part of
her cargo, to order. There have la-en some recent
arrivals of such wines from the Doited States, but
this is the first arrival of the kind from the Ifritish
possessions in North America.
Tiie Governob of India.? For some time past
an inquiry baa tieen going on regarding the conduct
of our Governor at Cry Ion (Lord Farrington)
during the native outbreak which occurred in that
island in 1n48. It was assorted and very generally
iK'lieverl that his course was marked by incapacity,
and by the cruelly which commonly arroiupanic* t
fneblcnca*. Rut hia ariatocriitic connexion* at
home cxrrciacd an influence whit h greatly checked
inquiry, and it waa doubtful if the mailer would
ever be fairly met. A accrct committee, however,
waa appointed, and it it now bet ome evident that
they have diacharged their duty with tolerable impartiality,
an announcement having juat liern
made that, in conaequcnce of their report, Lord
Farrington haa been recalled, with hia principal
adviaera. SirG. Andcraon, who waa Governor at
Mauriliua, haa been appointed to fill hia place.
Ireland.
Th? Habvk*t.?The reporla to-day are altogether
more favorable than tlmee of the laat ten daya,
and the impreaaion ia daily gaining ground that
the diaeaae in the potato ia nearly confined to out?
aril appearance*, and that in fourcaaea out of five j
it willhe found that the blight haa not extended be- |
yond the etalk. According to the Limerick Chroutrlt,
the raina and briak wind of laat week recovered
many fielde of potatoea which the country people
feared were decaying under the blight, and it ia
now quite certain that the progrraa of the diaeaae in
thoae inatancea haa been arreated. From the county
of Mayo the rcporta are pretty much to the Amc
effect.
At the weekly meeting day of the Guardiana of
the North Dublin Cnioii, the inaalcr of the work
houae mentioned the gratifying fact, that out of
two acrra and a half of the Kemp rpecica which were
grown at Glaaanevin, be did not meet one with any
?ymptom of taint; and one of the board (Dr. Brady)
aaid, he had juat returned from the county of Tipperary
and the King'a and Quern'* countiia,
through which he had driven to the extent of thirty
inilra, and did not obaerve a aingie dieeaaed tulvr,
but the leavca were extrnaively affected From the
tooth riding of Tippcrary it la reported that there
haa been no extenaion of the blight, and in the dittrirta
aurroundtng Cionmrl the field* are quite free
Irom any appearance of decay, and the plant aerma

for believing that thr projections of thr I'mwimi
jTovcrnrnrnt may bf rnlurctl into two c?lr(fiiri(* of
augmentation mid diminution, a* follow*:
I. Diminution upon the most essential article* of
subsistence, such as jrrain, husk seeds, (peas, fcr.,)
butter, rice, iind < alile, including lrn" swine.
II. Alxdition upon nil raw materials required for
manufa< tures, providing the ooratnounl inter?*'*
of native producers, or fiscal consideration*, do
not militate against the abolition.
III. Considerable diminution of a larjre pnriioti
of the transit and rsport duties, and reduction of
river tolla on conventional water*, (Rhine, Elbe,
tipper Danube, Aic.)
IV. Augmentation upon yarns, twist, TOVC or
spun silks, in the following proportions;
1. Linen yarns respectively, from 6s. (Id. and 12s i
to 12s. and 18a.
2. Unbleached and doubled thread cotton twists,
from 9to 19a.
3. Wove or spun ailk from la. 6d. to 9?., and
from 94 to 30s.
4. Worsted yawm, from la. 6d. to 12a.
6. Through the medium of a new system of classification
to raise the duties upon the finest articles
manufactured from flax, cotton, ailk and wool, from
?9 to ?11 to., from ?6 10a. to ?11 5a , from
?lti 10a. to ?22 10a. respectively.
Then, in order to prevent this augmentation becoming
prejudicial to manufacturers, from the inevitable
augmentation of the prices of goods manufactured
by them from yarna, If is proposed to
offer a drawback upon exports to the amount of
9s. per cwt. This drawback is not, huwevrr, to Ik*
paid in money, but in certificates, which certificates
will t>c taken as set-ofls agfiinst the sums
to he paid importers of the half-manufactured
article.

The Spanish Ambassador at Rome had made serious
representations to the ecclesiastical court for
having- so suddenly conceded llic dispensation required
for the marriage of Count Montcniolin will)
liia couain; but tiiat Cardinal Orioli answered that
the utTair wan not submitted at all to the court, but
was aetlled in a private interview between his holiih'ks
and the Countess of Spaur.
The chapter of the order of Dominican Friars
having assembled to select their general, hia holiuess
unexpectedly stopped the proceedings, and
by his own authority, contrary to the statutes of
the order, named Father Jcandcl, a French Dominican,
now living in France. It is believed his
holiness intends remodeling the constitutions of
the religious orders, and to do away with the system
of elections us tieing too democratic.
The Germans and Danes.
The war in Scbles wig is still going on, hut the
parties seem mutually aware of each other's
strength, and are consequently not prepared to
risk any thing by rashnesA. In an attempted ttconnoUnence
ol the Schlep wig Iiolstein lines, the
Danes have been driven buck with some little loss,
but there lias been nothing in the shape of a regular
action. The explosion in (he arsenal laboratory
iu Hcndshurg appeurs to have created much depression
on the side of the. Germans, the damage
and loss of life having proved greater than wns at
first believed. More than one hundred persons
were killed. Any thing like a pence between the
two parlies is wholly out of the quc3tion without
foreign interference. One rumor has been that
Knglaud and Ituspia have sent commissioners both
to Copenhagen and Kiel, to endeavor to bring
alrout an arrangement tlmt shall at all events stop
the lighting.
This, however, must be carried out rapidly, if it
is to be effected at all, 6ince the excitement 111 Germany
is increasing daily, and (here is a strong
feeling against the views and intentions niamltsled
in the recent protocols agreed to in Ixindon hy
representatives of the various European powers.
Already the Russian minister has published a
string of reasons for the nou-concurrcnr.c of his
government in those protocols; and although they
arc as complicated and obscure as any thing which
has hitherto appeared on the question, they are sufficient
to show that on neither side can a satisfactory
arrangement he arrived at until the system of
special pleading on behalf of kingly claims is
abandoned,and the wholcaffair considered with the
simple intention of finding out what arc the just
and natural requirements of tfie populations that
arc interested in it.

Opening or the Post OrricE on Sunday.?The
report of the Commissioners has been presented to
the House of Commons. They advise a single delivery
and receipt of letters and newspapers on
Sunday, that arrangements may be made to enable
postmasters and their assistants to attend divine
worsiiip on alternate Sundays, aud report that
in very small rural districts no extension of the
time for the receipt and delivery of letters and
newspapers, beyond that formerly permitted, is
required. The latest of the many thousand complaints
that have been made upon the subject of
the recent alterations w ill be found in our parliamentary
report of Wednesday night. Lord Campbell
explained to the Peers the amount of inconvenience
that had bceu suffered hy the judge-s on circuit
in consequence of the suppression of all communication
lor twentv-four hours in every week.
He and hi* colleagues had applied to the Postinaxter
General for an exception in the case of the
judges, but the application was. of course, refused.
The post olfice returns for 1*49, just presented
to the House of Commons, embrace?1, the number
of letters delivered in the United Kingdom; 2,
the revenue; 3, the cost of management; 4, the
payments to railways; and 5, the number and
amount of money orders. We have prepared the

morning at his residence, the Bam Kirns, Putney.
The event was hourly expected froin Friday alternoon,
when the symptoms ot the parnlytu atlxi k,
under which he labored for the last month, became
painfully alarming. The death of so good and so
ablo a man will he greatly lamented. He presided
over a branch of the court of chancery since the

profession by the general soundness and invariable
impartiality ol Ins judgment, by the regularity

Pahis, August 15, 1850.
The great men of Paris have all disappeared at
the adjournment of the Assembly, as suddenly u
Egyptian locusts before a strong east wind. For
three months we shall have no "log-rolling," no
legislative mines and counter-mines, no intrigues
in the house for portf lios at the Elysee, no laws
passed in haste to he repented of at leisure. The
members of the Assembly are now at home attending
to their vineyards or farms, brushing the dust
oil the papers in their law offices, and receiving the
felicitations of the members of their respective parties;
or at the springs recovering their health; or
at Wiesbaden plotting the restoration of the ancient
royalty. At the last regular eitting of the Assembly,
fifteen or twenty laws, Including one destroy.
ing the lilrerty of the press in the colonies, and another
accepting the budget of receipts for 1851, were
voted. The hurry and confusion were the same as
! may be seen in our own Congress at the close of a
session, ltuinocsof all kinds were in circulation.
.Some said that a presidential message, announcing
the long expected coup <l' itat, would be pent in;
others That General Changamicr was about to be
removed; others that the Mountain had organized
an ineurreetion, which would break forth in all its
i fury on the last day of the session. Hut the crisis
I lias been passed, and we arc all alive and well.
Before noticing the President's trip to the east of
France, I must devote a paragraph to a couple
I of dinners given by him to the officers and subofficers
of (he garrison of Paris, in consequence of
! ttie failure to establish a camp at Versailles. The
opposition of General Changamicr made the project
fall tbroUL'b.
The idea of banqueting the officers in the garden
of the KlyscSe was thru hit upon. At the coiuuirucemont
of the tiret, the President and General
Changarnicr were present. Hut they soon retired.
The former re-appeared after the cloth had hern
removed. Krport say* he made himself very
agreeable to his guests. A second banquet ol a
i similar character took place on Saturday.
The President started on his trip last Monday,
accompanied by aliout forty or fifty persons, and
several fine horses, twelve of which lie received last
week as a present from hngland. The court papers
announce that "the President had invited Monsieur
; le Cornpt dc Moutnlrinlrert, the famous Catholic
leader, to form part of his suite, hut that the c ount
had left the evening before for Dijon, to assist in the
' pieparations for receiving the illustrious traveller."
After reading the different accounts of the trip,
; and miking proper allowances for party riagycr'
a lions oil both sales, I think that so iar as the peo
pie are ronccrued, the President, supposing liim
ambitions of a crown, has no re ason to t?e rricoura:r'd.

The proiort of uniting the two branches ha*,

Ka< li party is forming sei ret societies in Paris
and the provinces. The lionapai list* call theirs
I the "llMA iff lhctmlxT," and operate almost public|
ly. They arc not molested by tin police, and have
already enrolled a large number of members.
Many of thrin receive pay fnuii llie funds of the
society for proselyting. The Republicans charge
tliia soi icty with organizing ibc rntbusiaern at tlie
reception of the President at the prim i|?l points i f

name ot " l>roil \atumrl" Many of these am le
tics have been broken up by the police, but as yet
the members have been treated with great moderation.
At present there are symptoms of an awakening
energy on the part of the Government. Yesterday,

Baltimobi, Sept. 1.
The steamer Atlantic arrived at New York at U
o'clock to-day.

9,600 bales. Flour declined six pence. Corn dull.
Wheat declined one shilling-. Consols and American

head of affairs if public opinion favors him.
The weather in England and Ireland lias heen
good.
There have been some overflows of the streams la
Belgium.
Accounts from Schleswig represent a suspension
of Acid operations by both armies.
No other political news of the slightest moment.
B/.ltimohc, Sept. 1.

into lust n<ght off Cape ilciilopcfj, by the liark
Delaware; her wheclhouse win broken, anil she
wan otherwise injured, and was towed tiack lo
Philadelphia this morning for repair*; will I* detained
a week.
Local Matters.
Till Saiibath.?Yesterday was another rainy
1 Sabbath, and another quiet Sabbath in Washing1
ton. Three weclc* have now paMed iinre the fire
on K street. On that night thcrt were first a false
alarm and a riot, then were evidently set on fire
| (he workshops consumed, and then a brutal murder
was committed. We have had no fire, and, we
I believe, not even an alarm since! How many fires
and how many alarm* should wc have, had wc no
rowdies, no rowdyism in connexion with the engines?
Missionary Meeting.?We again call attentionto
the meeting lo t>e, held this evening at the -Uh
Presbyterian church.
The Siiootino Accident.?The lad Meson, who
was on Thursday lust shot hy a gun in the hand*
of a son of Colonel W. P. Young, appear* to hate
sustained less injury than was then supposed. ilia
left arm is still sore and slightly swollen, end occasion*
the only inconvenience he experiences. He
will no doubt be perfectly well in a few days.
A Figiit?the First and the Last or it.?
Two gentlemen, named Laliold and Bridges, were
011 Saturday afternoon last nabbed by officers Ennia
and Bushcr, and taken licfore Justice Beck, who
indicated hit desire that they should be tried before
the criminal' court upon the charge preferred
against tbcin, which wc believe was for disturbing
the peace. Mr. Bridges gave security in the sum
of w 'XWI 1/11* hi. -j ........ w. ... .. K..I M_ V ?I
bond called for #266, was less fortunate, and had
to inarch in a solemn procession of two to the
county jail.
There had arisen a difference between these personages
in the bargain and sale of an umbrella,
comprehending not only a levy, but a point of
fact and a principle of honor. In the heat of the
controversy, and in the presence of the umbrageous
umbrella, I^abolil took umbrage at some remark
made by llridges.and gave him a crack over
the pate; whereat Bridges, hoping to terrify his
assailant, who is a Jew, bristled up at him in a
manner which seemed to say that he was for going
the whole hog, and pelted away as though he
would make mincemeat of him. Labold now directed
all his talents and energies to the purpose of
saving his bacon, which he would no doubt have
done, had not the limbs of the law smoked them
lioth, and resolved on tolerating no such gammon.
Considerable resistance, and somewhat violent
too, was made to the officers; but these men could
not be convinced that they had taken the wrong
sow by the car.
A delegation of Manomane Indians are now in
this city, at King's hotel. They arc, we believe,
under the superintendence of Mr. Win. II. Bruce,
Indian agent, and are also accompanied by the following
named gentlemen, via. Wm. Powell,
L?mtcd Stale* Interpreter ; John B. Jacobs; Charles
A. Grignon; Rev. M. Bond well, Teacher, Superintendent
of Schools, lee.; A. CaldwcU; Francis
IJesnoyer; GeorgeCoweu.
The name Manomane signifies Wild Rice. The
names of the Indians, with the signification of some ,
of tliein, are as follows: Oah-Kosh, The Brave;
Kec she-new, the Bird tliat llies fast; Corrow; Waukc-ihe-un,
Crooked Nos< ; Sag-e -lo-kr; Sho no nce;
Shan-wan no pe-ness. South Bird ; Chs qui-tura, a

COMPANY.
Through Passage to California.
L THE pnblic will la- gratified to learn
that the United State* Mail Steam pliip
Company arc enabled to announce
that their arrangement* are now complete
for sending passenger* through from New York to
San Francisco and back.
In the tirat attempt* of thi* company to meet the
want* of travel to California, by providing ahipa on
the Pacific, in connexion with their ahipa trom New
York to Chagrcs, they were prevailed upon, at the
urgent solicitaiion of the great number then dextrous
to go out, to sell ticket* for through passage*
from Panama in advance, for their chips (hen going
round. Tin* was done from a desire to aecom
modate those who could procure passage* in no
ulbcr quarter, and by which, whatever might bo
the detention, they would reach San Francisco
sooner than hy any other line. Uniorseen dittiI'ultics,
and the prevalence of fever at Kio Janeiro
at the time, prevented their ship* from reaching
Panama as soon a* was anticipated, and caused detention
at the Isthmus, which wae increased by the
iiiipiiiH iuc ui IIIC in guuig lurwtru,
against tin: advice of the company, at an earlier
dav than the ships could possibly reach Panama.
These interruptions are now all removed- Three
of the four ships of the company, intended for the
Pacific service, have arrived at Panama, and several
of thetn have performed tripa to San Francisco
and back; so that the company are now able to
give the public the assurance thut the voyage
through from New York to San Francisco will b?
performed with regularity and despatch.
The Pacific Line, from Panauia to San Francisco,
cousin's of the
REPUBLIC, Captain Hudson,
COLUMBUS, Captain Peck,
ISTHMUS, Captain Hitchcock,
ANTELOPE, Captain Ackley.
Their Atlantic and Gulf Line, from New York
to Chagres, of the
GEORGIA, Captain Porter, LT. S. N.
OHIO, Captain Sclienck, U. S. N.
FALCON, Captain Hartslein, U. S. Pi.
The connection between tbe two lines will be
carefully and regularly kept up, so that no delay
beyond the usual stay of the ship in port at Panama
will arise.
Their large size, well-known speed, and superior
accommodations of their New York and Chagres
line, and the speed and accommodations of the
ships of their Pacific line, offer tbe most certain,
rapid and pleasant through passage to Calif >rnia.
