Dr. K: :iit -ii *• first Lrcluro was Geographical,
lie said the Empire of Austria wis divided into the
Kingdom of Hungary and its dependencies, winch j
the Emperor, when crowned King of Hungary, ;
swore to govern by a constitution 850 years old; I
and what were railed the Hereditary Provinces,
which he governs by despotic, swav, asking no coun
sel and taking no direction from the people govern
ed. These hereditary provinces—so called -are
Austria proper, Carnolia, Carinthia, Tyrol, lllyria,
Venice, Lombard)*, Styria, Bohemia, Moravia, G.d
licia and Lodomeria. The. Kingdom of Hungary is
now Hungary, Selavonia, Croatia and Dalmatia,
and formerly included Gallicia and Lodomeria; . Iso
Rama, Bulgaria, Servia, Bosnia and Wallaehia.
For the King of Hungary is always crowned as
King of Ten Provinces, and in his oath promises to
restore these ten Kingdoms,some of which have from i
time to time been lost.
On an excellent large cloth map the doctor show
ed us the Carpathian Mountains bordering the north,
east and part of the south of the Kingdom of Han
garv, and sending spurs south and west, covering
with these spurs the whole of Transylvania, the
principality in the south cast. These mountains
! were seen to leave very plainly a very large plain
; lying between the Danube, running south from Pres
-1 burg, and Transylvania. The River Theiss ran
south through the middle of the plain and met the
Danube on the south, for having received the Drave
and Save which How from the west with Selavonia
between them, the Danube is turned east and runs
along on the south into Wallaehia.
T'his great plain he described as immensely rich
in all vegetable and animal productions, notwith
standing there are parts of it sandy, rolling sand,
| like the Desert of .Sahara—and parts marshy, pro
) duced by the rivers from Transvlania running west
I and stagnating in the plain—and vast prairies like
those of our Western States; but on the northcrfi
J side of this plain, on the southern declivities of the
! mountains, were the finest vineyards in the vvoild.
j Grain grows profusely on the plains every where. In I
| t lie southern part, called the Banat, (from Bailor Pan i
I —equivalent to the German Ilerr,) grows Rice and
| C ittoii. Among the Cattle he mentioned immensely
| large white, horned Cattle—none like them in the
world—of which there is a profusion in Hungary;
! and the Horses, called, in ridicule of their smallness,
i by the Germans, 44 little cuts;" but so swift and
spirited that they inspire a terror as cavalry j not to
In-rivalled by the great horses of Germany, who
can only turn once, while these 44 little cats " run
round them three times. Besides these vegetable
and animal treasures, among which 1 did not men
tion the vast Forests of Transylvania—the. moun
tains arc full of minerals—Gold, Silver, Copper, '
i Iron, Zinc, and Rock Salt. Gallicia has its name
from Salt, being originally Ihtlicz , and in the north
of Hungary, in its present limits,the carriage-wheels
of travellers often cut their way in Rock Salt.
There is Salt enough in Hungary of the best kind,
as well as other productions, to supply all Europe,
if well managed.
But it is the interest of the House of Austria
that Hungary shall not have Foreign Commerce.
It is an article, of the Hungarian Constitution that
no money is to be granted to the Government ex
cept at the decree of the Diet. The Diet have held
fast to this Constitutional principle under all their
oppression, at great personal sacrifice of present gains,
with the noble instinct that to yield their Constitu
tion is yielding the vitality of their .national charac
ter. The Austrians therefore adopt a policy, call
ed in common parlance, 44 Smothering Hungary in
its own grease;" they let the riches of Nature in
crease and afford it no free millet. It is an Austrian
law that the 1 Bulgarians sell only to the hereditary
provinces which combine to make them sell cheap
their raw produce, so very little money goes into
Hungary. A cordon of the most terrible custom
houses in the world surround Hungary and keep it
from exporting. Then manufactures are forbidden in
Hungary, and cherished in the manufacturing dis
tricts, so the raw produce is returned to Hungary
manufactured, at enormous prices. The richest
Hungarian, rolling in prolusion of produce, has little
or no money. he cannot travel, lor he cannot
put mines, and wheatliclds, and horned cattle in
his pocket for 44 change." And this serves another
Austrian object; they do not want the Hungarians
to travel and learn how much better things are
managed elsewhere.
He made it very interesting by showing how
nobly the Hungarian Diet has maintained its position
during centuries of persecution like this, nursing the
sacred fire of constitutional liberty, in the expecta
tion of a time when it might enkindle and warm
therewith all Europe.
The intelligence from Europe, by the Hibemia,
is full of interest, though not specially important,
in a political point of view. The fighting in Hun
gary is becoming more desperate and decisive, but
it is almost next to impossible to get a clear under
standing of the relative position of the two armies,
from the extremely confused and contradictory ac
counts which come to us—mainly through the letter
writers and correspondence of the English and
French press. There seems to be no doubt now,
however, that the Russians have been thoroughly
thrashed by Goorgcy and Dcmbinski, in the North,
and Bern in the South. Moreover, the rumor we
had by the last steamer respecting the defeat <>l
i Jellachieh, the Ban of Croatia, is confirmed. All
this looks encouraging for the Magyar cause, which,
so far, has been upheld against the hordes the Yus
tro-Russian alliance lias brought into the field to
put it down, with a manliness, a courage and a
patriotism, that cannot but extort the admiration,
while it evokes the warmest sympathy of the whole
world, save the duplicate despotisms who have uni
ted their power in bloody opposition.
From France there is nothing of importance (we
mean over and above the usual rumors of new revo
lutions and new attempts at revolution.) President
Bonaparte is making a tour through the provinces,
meeting apparently with as warm a welcome as our
own American President is having in Pennsylvania.
The French President intends to visit Bordeaux and
Lyons, and perhaps Marseilles, taking the great in
tervening towns on his route. Whether this is
| merely to eat eh popularity from the provinces, or
j whether it is a prelude to more important schemes,
remains to be seen. Meanwhile the reactionary
policy of his administration divulges itself more
dearly every day. Refugees from Baden are for
bidden to cross the boundaries of France, on pain of
death, and many of the Poles sojourning in Paris
are ordered out of the country. These gentlemen
have resided in France for many years, and have,
always cautiously abstained from mixing themselves
up with French polities; so that their unceremonious
expulsion now is nothing more nor less than a vol
untary service rendered the Emperor of Russia!
The prorogation of Parliament, the Queen's visit
to Ireland, and the progress of the cholera, arc the
most prominent features of the English news. The
Times holds this language in referring to the plain
and unostentatious style in which the Sovereign goes
to Ireland:—
44 She goes not attended by the fair auguries of
. national prosperity and material wealth. Her steps
have not been preceded by the creation of cominer
j rial opulence and industrial energies. Her heralds j
i have been Plague, Pestilence, and Famine; the bun- j
ger which slays bv hundreds, and the disease which
J kills by tens of hundreds. She. leaves the most
luxurious and the most opulent capital of Europe to
1 visit its poorest and most squalid towns. Even the
great mansions and the beautiful cities which only a i
few years ago would have done meet honor to the i
impersonated Majesty of the United Kingdom, lie i
smitten bv the same stroke and blanched by the
same cruel fate. On the hanks of the Litlev and |
the hanks of the Shannon alike the genius of Ire- !
land bewails the infliction of a gigantic calamity,
and points to the cicatrice which it has left for
jHiie and Providence to cllacc. The rich have "be- j
j come |H>or; the poor destitute. The mansion of the <
1 gentleman and the hovel of the peasant have both f
I felt the levelling hands of desolation and death. At •
such a moment the display of costly magnificence • c
I and sumptuous festivities would be. not the token | *■
j of an exuberant loyalty, but an insult to the suffer- j (
i ings of the living and the sepulchres of the. dead."— I

LIVERPOOL, August 3, 1819.
The demand for Cotton this week has been com
paratively moderate, and the market without ani
mation, but as holders pretty generally have been
firm, and abstained from pressing sales, the Brokers
ha've to-day resumed last week's quotations: sny 5i
for fair Upland, 54 fair Mobile, 5 ' for lair Orleans,
and 4£d. for middling qualities of three descriptions.
There was a question as to reducing these quotations,
• but it was finally decided that they should stand,
though felt on all* hands that the market is a turn
in favor of buyers, particularly in the lower qiiuli
i tics. The sales amount to 42,200 hales, of which
9,300 are on speculation, anil 5,700 for export, sliow
■ ing that the consumers have operated on an un
usually limited scale. The American descriptions
consist of 9,800 Upland at dk(p,bh; 19,380 Orleans
at4h"7; 5,110 Alabama and Mobile at [email protected]
lb. The import fur same time is 33,800 bales, and
, the supply into this port since Ist January amount to
, 1,428,000 against 1,123,000, to same period last season.
From the United States the import is 1,230,000
being an increase of 200,000 bales. The stock in t Lis
- port is estimated at 700,01K) bales, against 597,000

Extract from Baring's Circular.
LONDON, Friday, August 3, 1849.
This has been a week of comparative inactivity
in the Colonial and Foreign Produce markets, and i
. ! in several articles there sales have been pressed, j
. | rather lower prices have had to be submitted to, (
j though, in most instances, holders have not felt dis
! ! posed to make any concession. The weather has oon
' tinned most favorable for the crops, and the harvest,
1 which lias already commenced in the most forward
I districts, will next week become pretty general.
Coffee. —Only 160 casks 7000 bags Plantation
have been brought forward since our last, which
being held for higher prices, were chiefly bought
in. Native Ceylon is worth [email protected] Oil., the for
mer price having been paid for one or two parcels
to arrive.
The Corn trade continues much depressed, and j
Wheat of all descriptions is again l(h 2s. cheaper, :
| with fair supplies from the farmers, and daily arri- j
; vals from abroad. Flour may be quoted at 235. od. j
| c</ 24. od. V brl. for superior to choice brands; ordi- \
' nary and out of condition very difficult of sale from |
j 20(a 225. The demand for Indian Corn has been !
I extremely slack; but to-day thrfce cargoes of Ibrailn j
were sold afloat at 255. W quarter, which is again j
j 1 y 2s. lower.
Sugar. —The home demand lias been limited
' through the week, and in the sales made, a further
i reduction ol Oil. has been conceded to buyers. The
actual transactions do not exceed 17(H) hhds. and
