By the overland mail, which arrived at Marseilles on the
, 4th ultimo, and reached London on the ^th, intelligence has
been received of the settlement of the disput" with the
I Chinese authorities at Canton. This was nut effected until
two of the torts at the passage of the Bogus hnd been
stormed by the British forces, the fleet of w.tr junks de
: stroyed, and the batteries higherap the river bombarded by
; the fleet. Then the Governor of Canton, seeing thai the
I time for procrastination was pissed, sent to beg for a sus
i pvnsion of hostilities, ami commenced the negoctation,
! which speedily le 1 to a settlement of the di-pute, at least
' so far an he had th. power of settling it. The following
. are the terms agreed upon:?
1. The cession of the Hand and harbor of Hongkong to
' the liiiti-h Crown. Al! just charges and duties to th*- em?
pire np?n the commerce c trried on there, to be paid ds it
j'liie trade wer- conducted at .Vhunnou.
2. An indemnity to the British Government of six mil?
lions of dollars, one million payable at once, and the re?
mainder in efjonl annn 1 instalm ?w-\ ending in lN 10.
j'. l'ireet official intercourse between the countries upon
an equal footing.
1. The trade of tii" port of Canton t<> be opened within
i ten days alter the Chinese new year, and to i>e carried on
i at Whampoa till further arrangements are practicable at
, the new- settlement.
The following is a copy of the proclamation i;.-ucd by
i Kcshcn, the Chinese Imperial Commissioner:
?? kcshcn, ti groat Mit.ister of Suite, and Imperial II ich
Commissioner, of. the second order of hereditary nobility, and
Acting Governor of the two hTwang Provinces, writes ti.i
kespatch fur the full information ef the Ttuigche, or Keun
ming-fbo of Va "ao :
?? The English barbarians are now obedient to "rdcrs. a;:,]
? by an official document I.rue restored Tinghae and Snake.?
invoking me with the most earnest importunity that 1 should
? for ti: -m report, and bog for [the Imperial] favor.
?? At present all urluirr. are perfectly weil settled. The
former, order for stopping their trade and cutting off the sup?
plies of provisions it i* unnecessary to enforce: it is for this
purpose that I issue these orders to the said Tungeln1, that
he may obey accordingly, without opposition. A sjsecial
The details of the settlement of the China Question are
not fully given, but so far as they were understood, it ap
: pears they are not satisfactory to the English merchants.?
A correspondent of the Morning Chronicle, under date of
' Bombay, March 1, says:
?' As will be supposed, the terms of arrangement agreed
! upon by Captain E'liot and the Itnpet?l Commissioner
have been made th-; subject already of a great deal of dis
cusston. The prevailing feeling is decidedly thtt of dissat?
isfaction, but this may be in some degree attributable to the
dislike so generally entertained of Capt Elliot."
Macao. Jan. 21, lS4l.?Chusan, it is understood, will be
evscuated, and no port will be open to the northward.?
The future course of the opium trade does not seem to
have lormed a subject of discussion : but we understand
opium may be imported into the new settlement, although
still contraband in China.
The gen. rnl trade, th.s season, is to be carried on at
Whampoa ; and until we learn the proposed measures of
the B-i;i?h Government with regard to Hong Kong, we
cannot say when it is likely to be diverted to the new set?
tlement. Altogether we lock upon the arrtngement as
a very unsatisfactory description of compromise ; and we
j fear the only real ami tangible result- will be a payment et'
6,000,000 dollars within the specified time, possibly cvi-!
' lected by some additional imposts on the foreign trade
.' We do not learn that any reduction of the existing heavy
j duties is ia contemplation, or any modification of the ob
jectionable Hong system : btt: we trust, when thedetailsof
: the arrangement are promulgated, we shall find :hese mat?
ters will be properly arranged, am! some hope be afforded
of a more secure system of trade tor the future.
The East India China Association had held a meeting.
' ire! adopted a letter to Viscount Palmerston, expressing
their dissatisfaction at the arrangements ctitered into be
l tween Captain Elliot and the Chinese authorities. This
letter was sinned by all the heads of the houses engaged m
? the China trade at Liverpool, and forwarded to London.
Lord Palmerston bad appointed the "Jlst ult. as the day to
receive a delegation from the merchants on the subject.
The Xalional, a French journal, makes the following ob
j servations on the news from China. France may well look
' upon the planting of John Bull's sundard on the island of
Hong Kong, with jealousy.
"The most-important clause of the new treaty isthat
which stipulate-: for the cession of the island of Hong-Kong
to Gr?.at Britain. England thus realizes her dream of two i
centuries. In 176 '. after several fruitless attempts in the
Chinese seas, she established a factory at Formosa. She
then attempted to dislodge the Portuguese from Macoa, and
to create an establishment in the Island of Amoy ; but this
project failed. The authority niv-ri t? England in 16S0 to
establish a factory at Canton did not satisfy, and consequent?
ly, she never ceased intriguing at Pckin.in order to obtain
permission to in.-tal herself more solidly on the territory of
the Chinese empire. In 1755, the English appeared .it
Ningpo, and. in the course of the same'century, they sei
' foot on the soil of Tchou-Chan (not Clutsan) but they were
soon compelled to abandon both. From that time they were
tiinble to succeed until they called opium to th?-ir aid, and
now they triumph. Hong-Kong, or more properly speak
in?, the archipelago of Hong-Kong, is si'iiat d in the bay
ol Canton, opposite the river of that uame, and about three
myriametres (rather more than six English miles) to the
ea-t of Macao.
This group occupies so small a spice in the possessions
of the Chinese empire, that we only find it in very Luge
maps, and even there only the two largest islands are laid
down. Th ? largist of the two, that which ttives it.- name
I to the archipelago, is only two myriametres long, taken a'.
1 its ionge.-t |iurt, and its mean breadth is about a my name
'? tre and a half. These islands are barren, and are .-circely
inhabited: their position constitutes all their importance.
The English are not the fir.?t to appreciate the advantages
' which they offer in a military and commercial point of
view. They have long served as a nest of smugglers nnd
pirates. We can easily conceive the value of ihis acquisi?
tion. In future, the English will be no longer compelled
la place th. ir -hips under the proteciit n of the i". rtuguese
truiis. Whilst nominally within the d> minions of the Em?
peror of China, they Will be at home t this is all they want?
ed. In 16LI, they obtained permission from ihe Great
Mogul to found an establishment at Surata. Ttiis served
as tli.-ir puint d'appui for ihe conquest of India, and the
Emperors of Delhi soon learned to their cost, thai to sur?
render a single inch or ground to the English, is to furnish
them with the means of stealing an entire kingdom. What
the English did ou the banks of the Ganges, ihey will do
1 in China.
I They Lnow, to u3o the w ord.- of Lord Napier, that they
have to do with a people w ho are without the means of
defence, and they will lay held of ihe lir.-t opportunity for
throwing oli ihe mask- In the meantime, they will continue
to gain ground and strength according to tii' ir praise m orthy
custom, until s?me tine day the anger of the Emperor will
break forth, and give ri-- to a new war and vew conces?
sions on the part of the Chinese. This is the history of all
the invasious of the English."
The Paris correspondent of the London Morning Post
stat.--, on the authority of a letter from Vienna of ihe 1 Ith
instant, that the Eastern Question may be regarded as set?
tled, for that Reschid Pacha, whn hail been only the creature
of Lord Ponsonby, has been dismissed through the united
efforts of the Russian and Austrian Ambassadors, und has
been replaced by Rifaat Bey. who was formerly Ambassador
at Vienna, and who, since ihnt period, has been in close con?
nection with Prince Metternich. At Rifnai Bey's first con?
ference with Baron St?rmer, the new Minister for Foreign
Affairs solemnly promised thai within a few days the Porte
would publish a new hutti sehend', with the modifications
urged by Austria, namely, the direct succession t? the pn
cfaalic of Egypt. This news is sai.l to have produced a great
sensation in the diplomatic circles at Paris, not only because
of the defeat of Lord Poasonby, and his probable rccalh but
on account of the complete lall of the system of reforms ami
changes into which Reschid Pacha bud embarked. The
abdication of Mehcmet Ali in favor of Ibrahim Pacha is
looked upon as a, probable event.
On the |6th of March, the Turkish fleet, with only S000
of the 21,000 men who manned it oh reaching Egypt re
entered the Bosphorus. The Su!t,,!i had repaired in his
amer to the Kiosk- of the Seraglio Bouru<>u, in ordrr to
, witness the event. Tiie "Mkhmoudieh," ship of the line,
I took the lead, and on doubling the p<-int of the Seraglio,
' lired a saint" of 21 guns, which his highness ordered should
be instantly returned. All the other vessels of the fleet Fol?
lowed the example of the Mahmoudieh.
The fleet consisted of twenty-six sail*; eight ships of the
line, leu Frigates, two corvettes, and six brigs,and other I
light vessels. The entire population of Constantinople and j
its environs lined the banks of the channel, and crowned J
the bights which overlook the city, in order to enjoy the
sp I lele. In tiie course of the afternoon, the Sultan went
i onboard the Mahmoudieb, accompanied by all the Pashas,
and complimeuted Admiral Walker, in tiie most flattering
! terms, on his conduct throughout the recent occurrences.

Great dissatisfaction was felt among the Syrians still de
taint d in Egypt. Numbers were to be seen in the regt
. m-nt of cavalry encamped out-ide Alexandria. It was
chiefly this circumstance which had given rise to the cool
j ncss.and dissatisfaction observed between the Pasha and
Commodore Napier, previously to th- departure of the Ut
t-r. Th i Maronite Emirs and Druze Sheiks had, however,
arrived safely at Beyrout.
It is remarked that M. Coehelet, who had been replaced
as Cons?!-G".neral for France by Count Rohan Bhabot, had
long c.'.niislentia! ititerviev.-s with Mehemel Ali before his
: dep itture.
Advices from Constantinople of the 17th of March state
that the Ottoman tl-et r- turned to that capital on the 16th,
and had resume i its former station along the European bank
of the Bosphorus. A conference had been held a few days
! before atTerapia, ia the palace of Lord Ponsonby, fer th<<
; purpose of examining the reply of the Porte to the last de-1
: mands of Mehemet Ali; when the Ambassadors came to I
die resolution of supporting the claims i f the Pasha, and no
tiffed to the Divan, that if the Sultan did not grant them, his
Highness should noi expect any further interference on the j
: part of the Four Powers. The Porte would, it was ex- j
, pected, accede to the wishes of the Ambassadors.
Bv the French Etc trner Mentor, despatches from Constan-:
? tino'ple to the 2Sth of March had been received Councils
and Divans were held to decide the laie ol Mehemet Ali..
A tranquil termination to the discussions was expected.

of the N ile were i Dgaged in warfare on their own account,

The Pasha was awaiting the decision of the Pone upon
his objections to the proposed conditions annexed to the
hereditary Pachaltc of Egypt/without, however, relaxing
his preparations to enforce his own views. He had de
claied his determination to concede nothing beyond the
payment of a fixed yearly tribute of 300,000 or iW.OOO
dollars;, and to allow no interference in the details of his
government. As if in defiance of the hatti-scherifTof the
ggd January, he had ordered the army to be increased from
the present number of .'>5,(NNi to 70,t..H H) picked men; he
was daily bringing in conscripts in f< tiers; to Cairo: he had
Stopped the supplies of corn .-hipped at Sue/, for the Holy
Cities, which form their yarly tribute from Egypt ; and he
had raised the French Colonel of Engineers, M. Calise,
who recently fortified Alexandria, and was now ?tren^ihoa
ing Cairo, to the r.ihk of a Hey on full pay, at LS0 purses,
(?750,) per annum. Three regiments had been ordered
from Cairo to garrison Alexandria, and none of the Pasha's
sailors were permitted to leave the city for a moment.

" It seems to lie trio intention of Russia to employ this
. year a very considerable force n-ainst the Circassian mmu>
mincers. The division of infantry stationed ni Taganrog,
(belonging to the ">th corps of the army) is alrndy gone to
Georgin. The llth division, stationed on the other side of
the Dniester, has also receive.! orders to be in readiness to
march, having been already rai-cd to its full complement.
The 12th division remains for the present in Bessarabia, but
is recruiting with great activity, and seems only t'? wait till
it is complete. The troops in Georgia are, t is trne, grcutly
reduced by typhus and other epidemic disorders; hut the six
divisions consisting of 72,000 men, which are advancing,
1 united with tin- troops in Georgia, may certainly operate verv
