Interesting to the Merchant—the. Philosopher—
ami the P/iHaulhrojtisl. —The following remarks of
the London Times 011 the state of Continental
Europe will be read with interest, at the present time,
and they will serve to explain in some degree the
condition of things. No commentary, however,
upon passing events can enable the reader to see far
into the probable results and consequences of the
passing events.
44 In the present crisis of the alliiirs of Europe the
rapid transmission of persons and intelligence, the
unrestricted activity of the press, and the common
interests which have sprung up in 31 years of peace,
have rendered the reverberation of each successive
explosion all but instantaneous, and concentrated in
the action and reaction of a few days those impulses
and results which were in former times suspended in
their operation by distance, secrecy, and the sinuosi
ty of political art. In consequence of this decided
change in the mode of conducting all human alliiirs
every incident is added with instant rapidity to tin;
sum total of political motives, and has its visible ef
fect on the next result. So that, to form a correct
estimate of the general causes which bear most close
ly on the peace and freedom of the world, it is neces
sary to embrace the whole complicated subject from
.lutland to Palermo, and from Paris to the Darda
nelles. 111 all this vast and intricate scene, it is
scarcely possible to affirm that any one point is of para
mount importance over the rest ; we. have not to
ileal with any single evil, like that of the military
genius of Bonaparte w hen it soared to universal
monarchy and embraced the continent of Europe;
the phenomena we witness are infinitely various,
yet they are so closely connected together that it is
scarcely possible to consider theiu apart from each
Three great events, however, claim at the present
moment our cliief attention—the advance of the
Russian troops into Hungary, the. approaeli of a
French army to Rome, and, lastly, the prospect of a
serious contest between all the existing Govern
ments of Germany and large masses of the people,
already pledged to risk .every thing in defence of
national unity and democratic institutions. We be
lieve that in this country tluse events are unani
mously regarded by men of all parties with serious
apprehension and sincere regret. They bode no good
to Europe or to the times we live in. They menace
the world with a conflict of extreme parties. For,
as the tempest blackens day by day, it is impossible
to deny that the chances oi any rational compromise
or adjustment of these differences diminish, and they
are left more and more to the arbitration of the
sword. Yet, even when this conflict has been fought
and won, the victorious party, which ever it may he,
will be alike, embarrassed to restore the tranquillity
of society and the authority of Government, either
by the force of military despotism or by the license
of unlimited democracy.
Our intention is not to recriminate upon the errors
which may have been committed by Ministers of
this country, under circumstances of such novelty
and difficulty as to embarrass the most candid and
enlightened judgment. But we at least are com
pletely innocent of them. We do not ascribe to any
British Minister absolute control over such events ;
for the prudent neutrality to which England is re
solved to adhere leaves her representatives abroad
with very diminished influence, and we blame no
man for mischances which fell out beyond his rearb
or power.—But, as a matter of fact, we observe that
it is the unhappy debility of Austria which has given
the Russians their present footing on the Danube,
and has given the French their present footing 011
the Tiber. If any Englishman has contributed, di
rectly or indirectly, to prolong the embarrassments
or to increase this debility of Austria, he has like
wise and thereby contributed to these two foreign
interventions. There was one moment, and but
one that we know of, when this catastrophe might
have been averted. It was about this day twelve
month when Austria supplicated England to effect a
peace with Sardinia on the basis of the cession of
Lombordy. If that proposition had been vigorous
ly acted upon, the greater part of Northern Italy
would have been independent, the armies of Sardi
nia and Naples might have defended the Italian
Governments against anarchy, and the Imperial
forces, not being divided between a foreign and a
domestic war, would probably have terminated the
latter before the Hungarians had had the time to or
ganize their present army or the arrogance to pro
pose conditions incompatible with the existence of
the empire. The fact, that the Austrian Empire is
held together by little more than the name of a
Sovereign and the discipline of an army—the fact
that some of its chief cities .are disaffected, its races
incited one against another, and that its kingdoms
of Hungary and Lombardy have repudiated the Im
perial authority—the fact that in Germany itself
Austria is forsaken by her natural allies, and assail
ed by a strange combination of democracy and Im
perialism—are all incontrovertible. But it is pre
cisely because t his power has been reduced to a con
dition so far beneath her ancient dignity and the
plaee she has hitherto filled in Europe, that we see
the Russian and the French armies in their respec
tive positions on the frontiers of Germany and in
Central Italy; for, although both these interven
tions have been undertaken against the revolution
ary principle of the Hungarian insurgents and the
Roman demagogues, we are not the less sensible to
the blow which they are calculated to inflict on the
political independence of the Austrian empire.
Whatever tends to weaken or disunite the forces
of Central Europe, which are represented by the
Germanic Confederation and 1 lie Austrian empire
tends in the same proportion to increase the relative
power and to awaken the ambition of the great mili
tary nations of France and Russia. That is the
plain and incontrovertible principle which we apply
to the great occurrences of the present time, holding
it. to he a fundamental proposition of British policy
that our interests are opposed to the ascendency or
progress of either extreme, whether it. hoist the ban
ner of the French Republic or of Russian absolutism.
For this reason we have deprecated and we deplore
the political contest which threatens to divide and
dismember Germany under the pretext of unity, and
to reduce her to the condition of a federal republic
under the pretext of a federal empire. For this
reason we lament the division of the resources of the
Austrian empire against itself, which has left the
Ministers of that Crown 110 better expedient than to
accept the succor of a Russian army, and has ended
in the resolution of the Magyars to nepose the House
of 11 apsburg-Lorraine ; for, even if the Hungarian
campaign w ere successful, the difficulty of reorganiz
ing the government of that country will remain ex
tremely great, the dissent ion between Pesth and
Vienna is incurably deep, and not only Austria, hut
Germany itself, is threatened with the loss of those
eastern auxiliaries which have invariably played so
important a part in the defence of the whole. Ger
manic territory. For the same reason we regret to
find that the French expedition to Rome is calculat
ed to raise the gravest suspicions, and that the sol
diers sent by the President to restore the Pone are
enjoined by the Assembly to Fraternize with the
Roman Republic. Whilst Russia is enabled by these
events to turn her forces with greater effect, and less
resistance against Eastern Germany or Turkey,
France may gradually avail herself of similar ad
vantages and op|Kirtnnities against Western (for
mally or Italy. 11 Germany herself should fall from
lu r present state of division into actual civil war, it
is lv no means improbable that the. two great, eon
tending principles of Eastern and Western Europe
would ere long join in mortal conflict on German
Those practical results of the present state of af
fairs are, we presume, equally distasteful to every
class of' British statesmen; hut those who have ven
tured to espouse t he revolutionary cause with an ar
dor and a confidence which we do not profess to feel,
console themselves with the reflection that these
evils may he averted by the triumph of the German
ic Convention at. Frankfort—by the creation of a
powerful Polo-Magyar kingdom interposed between
Russia and Germany—ana by the erection of an
equally powerful kingdom of t T ppcr Italy, prepared,
under the house of Savoy, to resist the influence of
France as effectually as that of Austria. These are
the three great schemes which, if we understand
their jiolicy at all, Lord Palmerslon and his admirers
would oppose to t he triple danger of German anarchy,
Russian aggrandizement, and French ascendency
over Italy, if these projects were likely to be real
ized, and il it were as easy to re-organize Europe as
it. is to write diplomatic notes, we are not prepared
to contend that some such views might, not conduce
to the advancement and freedom of the nations
principally concerned in them. But the authors of
such schemes have mistaken the commencement of
a great, perio<l of revolution for the termination of
it. Nunc ot these plans ean he carried into execu
-1 lion without a tremendous conflict ; all >f them are
! totally opposed to every existing right in Europe;
1 some of them would obviously tail to accomplish the
I proposed object. They would make a tabula rasa
of the w hole political structure of the continent, not
tr the purpose of raising another substantial fabric,
but of lighting a protracted battle; and, in our opin
ion, the world will make a bad bargain if the entire
present generation he sacrificed to the horrors of war
and the miseries of revolution for no better object
than to gratify its worst passions,to try its most ex
travagant theories, and to consign society for a time
to the last extremeties of democratic government."

LONDON, Friday, May 18, 1819.
A good deal more activity has been manifested in
tlic Colonial and Foreign Produce markets this
week, notwithstanding the continued unsettled state
of European polities, and within a day or two hopes
have been renewed that a settlement of the Danish
question may yet be effected. This would at once
be sensibly felt in the increase of our exjmrt busi
ness, as the stocks of produce throughout Germany
must have become greatly reduced, and to our mar
ket they must look for the first supplies. Since our
last we have bad very fine and seasonable weather.
Co fee —The trade have been more disposed to
operate, and of 450 casks, 3,500 bags at auction, a
large proportion has been taken at very full prices,
including 359 bales Mocha from 565. fid. (a) 665. 6d.
Buyers of Native Ceylon at 325., hut 1,590 hags at
auction being held above the market, were bought
in from 325. fid. for ordinary, up to 335. fid. for very
good. In Brazil and St. Domingo no business lias
