In the House of Commons on the 7th,
the Marquis of Londonderry made a
spontaneous communication, respecting
tne views of Russia and Austria. He
stated that he had received official infor
mation that tne Russian army would not
pass its own frontiers. He also entered
into a further explanation of the reasons
which had led to the advance of the Rus
sian troops, and strongly repelled the in
sinuations that motives of political ambi- j
tion had any influence in the transaction.
He distinctly stated, that though he could
not make himself answerable for the con
duct of any individual, yet,from his knowl
edge of the character of the Emperor of
Russia, he believed him to be ** too deep
ly impressed with a true sense of his own
glory to seek for any further aggrandise
ment, either on the side of Turkey or of
Spain ”
Spain was becoming more tranquil.
The King’s birth-day was celebrated io
London on the 3d of May,with great pomp.
Tb« most splendid drawing room ever wit
nessed was held at Buckingham-palace, and
in the evening a most brilliant ball was giv
eo at Carlton-bouse. The drawing room
was attended by upwards of 2000 persons of
the first rank andfashioo, who‘were pre
sented to the King. One of the London pa

The Sardinian minister has announced to

Charles Felix as King of Sardinia.
London, May 14.
Consols closed on Saturday at 731 for Ac
count, the general impression being favora
ble to a Tine, principally on tbe ground of
the expected financial statements. It is un
derstood that while certain persons have
been impeding tbe public busiuess, and oc
cupying tbe public time with a succession of
trivolous and vexatious objections to tbe ex
penditure, Ministers have been silently at
*ork on the details of a cautious and judi
cious retrenchment in tbe various depart
ment; of the State- A great evil was the
*udden fall of prices in consequence of the
’eturn to cash payments, but it must not be
forgotten that this evil has some concomi
»aut advantages. The amount of tbe nation
al sxpeuditure may of course be greatly di
minished, if due advantage be taken of the
low prices (which we doubt has been the
Clse)'° the formation of contracts tor the
‘upply of the army and navy. Tbe tranqui
I'^ed state of the continent, too, while it
f^ders foreign Stock more valuable, re-acts
^po-our own funds and gives a general
^badmess to the money market. A new
tanofabout a million sterling has been con
ceded at Naples, under tbe guarantee of
Allied Powers. It is in a Five per Cent
lock, and tbe shares are now selling in Pa
fi-Mt 85, which it is said affords considerable
to the original contractors. The in
'•iduala who attempted to revolutionize
country dilapidated its treasures, during
'^'r short sway, in the most shameful man- j
*od some of them are supposed to have
*tun,,y stolen large sums, with which they
