The new* which we give today, is, in a commer cial point of view, of the most important character that we have received front England sinee the spring ?f 1837. The fail of Cotton, equal to $7.50 te $10 per hale? the increased restrictions ef the Baak of Eng land, will produce failures unprecedented throughout tfc* land, unless there are elements in this coun try capable of orpuuxation, strong enough to ward off the blow. The excitement yesterday was intense in Wall alnet? -stocks receded terribly ? and the aridity for the " Extra Heralds" even greater than ever known. This only shows the state of public feeling. To meet the hostile measures of the Bank of Eng land, what is to be done"! Is there any element in this country that can be wielded so as to prerent the blow from crushing our commercial interests 1 la there any mode of organixing an American element capable of withstanding the English element 1 Are there any financiers and capitalists capable of devi sing and daring svch a movement 1 We believe there are? we believe there exists in our great staple Cotton ? the real specie ef America, ? a power capable of warding off or mitigating this crisis. In April last we saw the present crisis ? we predicted the present state of things, and we chalked out a plan for combining American credit and power, that would have prevented these great disasters.

Yesterday, at twelve o'clock, the steamer Grerft Western vu announced in Wall street as Coming up the harbor, and at once the excitement suspended all business for the time being. We have wars and rumors of wars? riots ilk Birmingham war in Egypt and India, &c. tc. A series of severe and bloody riots took place at Birmingham, which were quelled by the London po lice, aided by the 4th Irish Dragoon* and Rifle Bri gade. Many were injured, and some killed. The Canadian question was under debate, and fears for the result were entertained. The French Chamber of Deputies had voted 10,000,000 francs to reinforce the French fleet in the Mediterranean. The war had commenced in Syria. Hafiz Pacha entered the territory of Mehemet, and attacked the Egyptian position on the 27th of May. The Egyp tians were defeated. The British Queen had not sailed when the Great Western left. She was to sail on the 11th July, from Port#mouth.

According to our Augsburg Contemporary, llafir Pasha has commenced opera tions in Syria The first serious collision between the two armies occurred o? the 27th of May, en which occasion the advanced guard of the Egyptian army retreated in good order before a very superior Turkish force. The mam army of the Egyptians hail advanced from Aleppo, so that news of a general battle ma* be looked for by the next arrivals. The Saltan's Manifesto against Mehemet Ali is dated the 8th of Jane, and was to be read in the mosques on the 14th. Mehemet Ali and Ibrahim Pasha are both proclaimed ?? traitors, deprived of all their offiecs and dignities, and Maflz Pasha invested with the government of Kgypt.

Disturb* m ? at Rinminoh am.? - Birmingham Thursday night ? At about a quarter past nine I was in the neighborhood of the Hull-ring, when a cry s?> made that the people assembled by Nelson's M<>bh ment were attacked by the police The seem at ' that time was past descripm n. Sixty of the A di- I vision of the London notice, under the superinten dence of Inspectors Martin and Partridge, arrived SEifce aigfct ?itamk Uaus At nine o'dack they ar |ved is oa?ibwei at the publie otfiee, in Mo?r at., which i? aitmtti withia fifty yards of the Bull-ring. were not Ieaa than 1,000 person*! At that tinw there w? ? ? ? -7? r? -. ? - ?round the Iflon unseat il the Butt-ring, The police, in division* ef about fenrteen, made an attempt to diaperae the people. The acene wai beyond descrip tion. The people is the first instance retreated, thea attacked the police ; when a man who was seized was soon rescued. This went on for about fifteen min utes, when about eight divisions of the 4th Royal I rub Dragoon Guards, headed by the Mayor, and Dr. Booth, Magistrate, arrived. They were placed in divisions al the end of Moor street, the Bail-hog, Speecal street, Bull street, Philip street, and the High Town Shortly afterwards aDout six divisions of the Riflemen arrived to support the Dragoons. I have oaly ti'ae to say that about twelve men are in custody, several of tnem injured, one with a cut lass in his possession. A policeman is in the hospital, wounded in the head, several others slightly, one stabbed ia the abdomen, and another in the tnign. All at this moment quiet. . Ansthf.r aorou.tr. ? This evening the Bull-ring meetings of the Chartists have been brought to a cri sis. At 8 o'clock this night, the usual hoar of meet ing, there wan a large assemblage of the people, ac companied by banners, Slc To the great surprise, however, of the mob, about a quarter past eight, a party of the London police arrived, and immediately proceeded ta arrest the leaders and disperse the meeting. The metropolitan police were down by the Home-office, and arrived only a few ?inutea before they attempted the dispersion of the Chartist multi tude. , , It is impossible, in a few lines, to describe the con fusion which ensued after the attack of the police. The mob resisted, and, althongh the London police were well organised, ai.d most determined ia their efforts, the number of the Chartists to whom they were opposed, and their evident preparation to meet anv attack, led to the temporary defeat of the police. For about t.eu minutes the fight was fearful, and 1 am sorry to add, it is feared that in more than one in stance the consequence will prove fatal Ihe po Uct were driven back into Moor street, and, for a short time, it was apprehended that the^mob would succeed in an assault upon the prison. 1* ortunately, the 4th Royal Irish Dragoons, headed by Colonel Chatterton, and accompanied by Mr. Scholeneld, the Mayor, arrived in time to a/ford protection to the civil authorities, and as 1 am informed by a bystand er, a gentleman of influence in the town, tared the Public office from popular fury. The 4th Irish Dragoons, together with the Rifle Brigade, immediately encompassed the Bull-ring, and stopped every avenue leading to it. The mob 1 upon their app ..ranee took to flight in all directions, and at the time I write the towu is in a great of state excitement. ... , Several of the London police are seriously injured, and it is feared that one inspector is fatally wounded by a stab in the sida. A magistrate, in expectation ol his death, is now taking his deposition. Five of the police have been conveyed to the public office, some of whom are unquestionably seriously injured. After all, I believe that the proceedings of tonight will have a most beneficial effect. Few, if any, of the reputable workmen of the town are connected with the Chartists. The military occupy the prin cipal streets, and, I am of opinion, tomorrow will see a restoration of comparative quiet. The Mayor, Mr. Chance, and other magistrates, are in attendance, and will remain at the public office during the night. PAKLIAMKTTlRr *KW8. It is is thought that the whig ministry may survive the session by truckling to the conservative interest.

Horse or Lords, July 5 ? The Bishop of Exeter put several questions to the Marqais of Normanby touching Canada, all of whieh were answered in the negative. . The first clause of the whig Jamaica Bill was re jected in the Lords on Tuesday night,- (2d July) t>y a majority of <J9 The clause gave to the Governor and three Councillors the sole power of legislating for the colony. The Jamaica Bill was further considered, and the clauses agreed to. Lord Brougham proposed an amendment to the second clause, but did not press it to a division. The Earl of Harewood pressed Lord Melbourne to withdraw the bill, whieh he very em phatically and positively declined. Hoi'ix or Commons, July 4 ? Catan v? The Ca nada Government Bill was "read a second time after a brief debate, which turned chiefly on the proprie ty of withdrawing the other Bill for unitioe the l^me U^*rfit>p(Wtr St Mfc with the Ministers, in withdrawing it. Mr. Charles Rullerwas mueh in favor of the union, which he contended would benefit the lower Canadians, we presume by the rooting them out. It was stated by Sir Robert Peel, aad must be generally admitted, that the question of the uaion of the two provinces was of very difficult solution. Sir Robert Peel said, he had always beea of opiaion that it would he unwise te pledge the house to anv particular principle, by resolution, without following it up immediately by legislation. He trusted the first step of her Majes ty s government wwuld be to take all measures possi ble to induce the American government t* unite with t*em ia putting a step to the border warfare which was carrying on (Hear, hear.) He should not of fer any "abjection to the second reading of the bill, bat he "reserved himself as to what coarse he should take on several of the tlauses when it was coasidered in committee- Lord John Russell said, the differeat classes must be fully debated in committee, when he should be prepared to defend them- The bill was to be committed July 11th J PL V 4th.? In the House of Lords, Thursday night, the royal assent was given, by commission, to the sugar duties' bill, and several private hills - Lord Brougham postponed his education bill till this day week Lord Melbourne, ia answer to Lord Coddingtoa, said there was rs intention to place any | di??emieg minister in the conmission for snperinten?i w ie printing of the bible In answer to Lord I ??nderry, Lord Wharnrliffe stated that the com I inittee on crime in Ireland h^d finished taking evi dence but he c->nld uot at present apeak on the sub ject of their decision. The Jamaica bill was then discussed, and on the suggestion of Lord Harewood | to withdraw the hill altogether, the gallery was i cleared for a division, but the house negatived the amendment without a division, and agreod to the 1 reoort In tha Cnmmnni, on the allegation of Sir Robert Pee!, the Election Petitiona' Trial Hill waa auflVrad to go through a atag?,and the third reading wai fixed for Monday.

Tha sub joined description of the British Queen, we take from a late number of the " Athensrum" : The external appearance of the ship, seen from the shore, is imposing and beautiful. 1 he figure head ia a graceful representation of the youthful monarch of Britain, so well proportioned aa to seem not more than the usaal height, altboughtwelve feet in stature ?and it is only when the atardy fellowa, who form ?he crew, approach the aovereign, that her Patago nian size ia determined by ther Lilipatian dimen sions. The appendages of the figure head and cut water are beautifully outlined, moulded, and covered with gold, and the effect of th? vessel at the bow oa the whole is very majestic. Passing round to her stern, the vessel is still very fine? the carving of the stern is in perfect keeping with the rest other ornamental work, and the stern galleries are elegant and well placed The rigging ia alao well propor tioned ; her masts are beantiful, and her yards are af great strength and excellent proportion. There she rides majestically queen of the seas, the noblest ateam ahip the world has ever aeen. It waa only when I gained the deck of the British Queen that I became thoroughly impressed with the truth of her enormous size. The deck ia what ia called a Hush-deck, perfectly continuous from one end to the other, instead of having higher and lower portions, forming poops, half-poops, Sic., aa moat common in vessels of her size. The deck ia a long promenade, and the distance from stem to stern ia a J;ood rifle shot; her breadth on deck being tone sixty eet. Her cabins are of the dimensions of her Ma jesty's drawing-rooms, aud the whole af her accom modation spacious, airy, and sufficiently splendid. Descending to her engine rooms, the engine aoee not atrike the spectator aa being extraordinarily large; hut when ouce at the bottom of it, looking up, you perceive the men who guide the whole machinery, and regulate and direct the combined atrength and aimultaneoua energy of five hundred horses, with greater anccessthan the tyrant Pbilopater hia galley of three thousand slave-power, aud feel that you are iu the presence of one of the noblest of human crea tions, the impersonation of the adage that " know ledge is power" ? power applied to the benefit and improvement of humanity The engine ia of the Gothic atructure, anme thirty feet high, ocaupying a length of eighty four feet, and weighing witn its appendages about five hundred tona. It does treat credit to the engineering talent of the river Clyde; aad although its appearance is rendered somewhat heavy by the fact ol having two condensers inatead of one, it ia otherwise strong, light-loaking, and well proportioned.

The knights are indeed ?o highly connected that, as admission is only gained by an or der from one of them, the company assembled is or the most select description The ground chosen is oblong, and of about four acres in site aloag the centre of which is placed a barrier, with a frame for the working of a figure in armor, whi?h is pro pelled along the railroad by the strength of three men in the opposite direction to that which the knirht take, in charging it. It ?PP"" absolutnly necessary that the horse should be obedient to the rider's will in order even to appmnch the figure. None of the horses are as yet sufficient^ trained. There is, however, no want of etprit on the part ol the riders, and their horses are evidently good both for strength and speed. The trumpet sounds! Away goes Mr. Charteris at full speed . His headlong career is not, however, destined to be successful. The plume of the figure remains unsoiled, and this gallant knight is aompelled to bite the dust. With better success Lord F.glintoun, Captain May nard, and Lord Cassilis made their debut in torn; Lord Craven, in arr?or inlaid with grid. Lord Glea lyen, and Sir F.

The enquires, meanwhile, amuse themselves ny tilting at orange* su?peniled in the air, or at the old ?me of the ring The effect of the tents and raised platforms, filled by the beauty and fa*hion of London, only required sunshiue, which on this occasion was not afforded, and a violent rain-storm dispersed the assembly at an early hour. . We hear that Lady Seymour is to be chosen of the Tournament, and is to have tha power of de ciding upon the merits of these representatives of the warriors of other days. LADIF.H' FASHIONS FOR JULY .

Generals Ayer ba and Nogueras being both ill at Saragossa, the com* aaand of the array of Arrngon had devolved on tha aldeat colonel. The heat ot the weather had became intense. To the astonishment of erery jperson, hos tilities have been suddenly suspended, it being the poliey ef the Generals on both sides to spin out the war as long as Spain is able te support a soldier. Switzerland. ? The Swiss journuU represent the canton of Berne as in a critical political condition. ? The inhabitants of the Jura districts aspire to com plete inuependence, and those of the Obcrland are beginning to entertain the same sentiments. Two commissioners have been sent into the Jura to ascer tain the ?tate^>f the public roiuS, but the future atti tude of the Overland is expected to depend on the turn of affairs in the Valais. Vienna, June 21 ?The eamp near Borodino in Russia will consist of 200,000 men. At the review at Warsaw, there will be at least 80,000 man under arms.? German payer.

Inbia. ? According to Calcutta gazettes received in Paris, an extensive conspiracy again?t the Eng lish had been discovered by a magistrate of Madras. Dost Mahomed, the Scliah of Persia, and Maun Singh, who were at the head of the plot, had sent up wards of 200 emissaries to the native chiefs to excite them te revolt. The Schah had marched against Herat at the head of 40,000 men, alter detaching a corps of 50C0 mcu to Bushirt. Rungent Singh is dead. This will change the as pect of Indian affairs. From the Augsburg Gazette. Ibrahim Pacha has issued a proclamation, in which he slates that the Sultan demands ol Egypt and Syria an exorbitant tribute, and, if complied with, tneir country will soon be ruined, in consequence of which he wages war for their preset* and future salvation. The inundation of the Tigris has caused great damages in Mesopotamia. Several caravans nave perished, and a part of the Turkish magazine belong ing to the army has been destroyed. We have received the Journal of Antwerp of ve?? terday's date, by which we learn by accounts from Cobourg of the 25th of June, that ihe town of Neu stadt has been destroyed by fire. The Town House and more than 200 other houses have been reduced to cinders. The flames spread with such rapidity that more than 1,400 of the inhabitants could save nothing but the clothes they had on. It is not yet known the number of victims who have perished. The bodies of two women had been dug out ol the ruirs. The importations in the port of Antwerp in 1S38, compared with that of 1839, present in cotton an aug mentation of 11,742 bales; in wool a diminution of 3,450 bales, while the importation* at Oatend, of the same article, have augmented to 5,90*) bales.

Tli?se two points are necssssrily of the utmost consequence to the Bask in its pre sent peealiar position, and a retrogade movement having occur red, notwithstanding the measures adopted by that institution, something more must necessarily be done to effect the object the Bank has in view.
