Thf Httrpllon In England of the PralUint'i Rifvul to settle the Oregon tfcuostlon by Aibltratlon. [Front the London Standard, March 3 ] By the packet ship Patrick Henry, which arrived at Liverpool on Monday evening, we teceived advice* from New York of the Vth ult oi confide table impor tance. It appear* that Mr. President Polk, abating none of that rabid violence which ha* characterised hi* offi cial proceeding* in regard to England, ha* announced to , Congreu the determination of the American govein 1 ment to refute all the offer* of arbitration which have been made by the Britiih minister pending the late ne gotiation*. Tbis decition ha* been communicated in a ?pecial an* war to a demand for information a* to the po sition of the negotiation which it ii iu object to termi uate. The modest and moderate Mr. Polk declares that there ia nothing to arbitrate upoo; tor that England ha* no claim to any part of Oregon! The outline of the cor respondence between Mr. Pskenham and Mr. Buchanan < will be lound elsewhere. The demand to know whether the military preparations said to be making in thia coun- I ! try have for their object the contingency ot a war with | ' America, ha* been answered in the negative; and Mr. | M'Lane i* ao kind as to express his belief that Lord Aberdeen ha* spoken the truth. Hi (M'Lane) thinks they have no reference to the " posiibility of a rupture between the two countries;" but ho shrewdly guesses that, in the event of a necessity, " Ureal Britain will act promptly and vigorously at first, with a view to aapeedy termination of the war." It appears that in the sourse of the negotiations, Mr. Pake.-iham offered, if the Ame rican government was indisposed to submit to the arbitration of a crowned head, to refer the matter to a commission composed of distinguish ed civilians. He proposed to meet the profess ed views of the United States by submitting the question of title first, and iu the event of its be ing found that neither party possessed one, then " should ' that an equitable partition should be the )>oint for consi deration Tbeeo reasonable offera were rejected at once, and evidently without consideration. The reply is char acteristic of .Mr Polk. "To no power, however intel ligent or respectable, nor to any body of citizens, can the United States consent to reler a claim of a character like that ^e poseease* to the Oregon country." There can be no clearer indication of Mr. Polk's wishes and in tentions than is to he found in this answer. But will the American Congress confirm tho insolent and unwarrant able tone adopted by this braggart 7 We think not. If we are to Ionia any judgment of the opinion* of the Ame iliy, in reg - - ? ? rican people generally, in regard to this question, from the most respectable portion of the Amerioan press, there will be no wer ; for nine of these journals out of ten denounce the conduct of Mr. Polk in term* of strong, end we doubt not sincere reprobation. America can gain nothing by a war with this country; whilst ber sa crifices must be enormeus. If she calculates so far on the pacific disposition of England as to attempt to obtain the 'vantage ground by insolence and braggadocio, aho will have bitter reason to repent of her mistake. The accounts received this morning from tho United States have taken all reflecting persons by surprise. It is now considered a settled question that the maintenance of peaceful relations between the two countries does not depend upon the sense of justice, or the wisdom and dis cretion of the American executive: and dreadful as the alternative of war, is It will bo with the utmost difficulty that any British minister can now escape from it with honor. Such is the universal expression of feeling this morning, under the idea that every honorable mode of | conciliatory compromise has been exhausted. The de sire is that the American government must be ao clearly placed in the wrong before the civilised world a* to ad mit of no question or dispute; and that point once esta blished, no contest was ever eu'ered into with more uni Ttrsal assent than this will be by men of all partiea. The steady reflecting portion of the American mer chants resident hers.are not those the least astounded by the Intelligence. They seem now to have no doubt, in consequence of the decided part taken by the executive, that the motion for giving notice for tho termination of the Oregon occupation treaty will be passed by Congress -and, like other persons, they admit that the result must be a cessation ot ail diplomatic relations between the two countries?nets* verro*$. [From the London Times, March 3.J By tho Patrick Henry we have received New York advice* to the 9(h ult. inclusive. The advices contain the following outline of tho oorreepondsnce which has passed since the 1st of December last, between Mr. Pa kenham and Mr. Buchanan, the American Secretary of State, and Mr. McLane, on the Oregon question, from which it will be perceived, that the twice repeated offer of ine British Minister to decide the whole question by arbitration has been rejected, and that the extreme pre tensions advanced by Mr. Folk in his inaugural message, are now again enunciated. The full correspondence his not yet leached aa. it is, however, looked lor hourly. [Frees the Leaden Pott, March 8 ] By the pacaet ship Patrick Henry, which left New York on tne 9th ult., I have received papers from that city to the above date.

The Burspean Interference In Mexicans Aflun [From the Lon.ion Time*, Feb. 11.] It is a remarkable coincidence, thet at the trerjr time when we were dta-ving public attention in Europe to the deplorable conditiou ot Mexico, and pointing out the moat effectual means el reconatituting that State ee at to preterre the independence of ita race, ita religion, and ita power, the count ol eventa in that country waa ra pidly tending to the end we bad oursrlvaa pointed out aa a matter ol political apeculation, and a revolution had actually been accompliabed which appeal ? to be emi nently favorable to the change we had ventured to aug geat We are very well aware that if an attempt were made to re-eatablun Spanish authority, under any form, in the Mexican province* by mere foice, or by external interierenca, such an interprise would run great risk of defeating itself; and the spirit of the people, which is more impatient ol foreign dictation than ol internal mia government, would be roused In opposition to the oniy project which bids fair to restore their national proapen ty, or, rather, to preserve their national existence.? ivhatner opinion may be entertained m Europe at to ike importance oj sue A a revolution, if it 6a desirable to eitah tish any permanent harrier againet the unlimited encroach menta oj the United Statei, if ts In Mtaico tteelf, and by the Mexican people, that the 6atil of a new sluts vj things mutt he laid. Sooner and more tuceestlully than we had ?toped or could have anticipated, this change baa begun. The advance of Taredes upon the capital has been (ol lowed by the dissolution of the impotent government ol Herrera. No conflict took place in the wnole march of the army lrom St. Luis Potosi to the citadel ol Mexico. Thegarriaona of Vera Cruz and St. Juan d'Uiloa, the moat important positions on the coast, and of Tampico, were amongst the first which pronounced lor Paredes and scarcely a fortnight elapsed between the publica tion of the proclamation by the leader ol the insurrec tion and hia arrival under the walla of the capital, as the master of the destinies of the republic. If this revolution ware no mora than the expulsion ol on# soldier ol fortune by another, and the aubstituton of a military dictatorship lor the authority of an incompe tent democracy, we mould find nothing in such an oc currence to excite our hopes or to demand our attention. Hut in tAe present itate of the relatione of Mexico with the United Stalea and of I ha United Slatee with England, the condition and praepecte of Mexico are matter a of groat in terest la ourselves. Nothing it more certain than that the Oregon yueotion it not wholly centered in Oregon. The spirit ol aggrandizement wnich has already annexed Texas, and which ciaim* the whole of Oregon, atso coret* California, and threatens the whole of Mexico. That is the great and unquestionable tact with which wa have to deal, now or hereaiter. That is the tendency which has already elicited from the head of the French government a strong declaration of his sense ol the dan gerous projects of tbo Cabinet of Washington. That it the sign et the times which, instead of warning us oft'the American aontinant, has given to all questions arising on that continent the strongest claim* to the attention oi European statesmen. The past and future policy of the United States has awakened all these questions. With-, out their activity we confess that the northwest coast of America might long have remained unexplorod and uo cared lor ; and Mexico herself might have found Utile tuppoit in Europe in herdomesuc disasters. But in the presence of a direct menace and a systematic aggres sion, planned by a government and backsd by a people, the condition of the independent States of North Ameri ca intimately concerns the maintenance of poaoe, the balance of power, and the observance of international good taith and jus tic*. If wa may give Parados credit for linearity in th* mo tives of his inaurraoUon, and the language of his procla mation to the country, ha represents the party in Mexi co to which alone we think it poaaihlo to look for the re generation ot tho State and the restoration of a regular iorm of govornmont. Ho recapitulates the various Inci dent* which hava marked the steady decline of Mexico sine# tho will of tho people thought fit to borrow those republican institutions lrom thsir neighbors which are supposed to hava wa know not what mysterious conge uiaiity with tho soil of America. Ha remind* tho Mexi cans ot whatihay ware in 1841, in connexion with tho other possession* of the Spanish crown ?' The revenue was softlciei.t, without pressing heavi ly on the country, to maintain tho State in ail its proper splendor, as well as the many charges on ita vast admin istration, to assist tho dalaoUv# colonies of tho Philip pine Islands, and to give a considerable surplus to tho Peninsula. The tribunals ware models of integrity,and tho Mexican army-that army which made the Indepen dence?waa numerous, warlike and wall disciplined." Inawoid, tnough soma allowance must bo medo for the exaggeration of a revolutionary leader, In Iftll Max loo was in a condition to assert her independence and to found o government; in 184ft she Is unoble to protect tho one er to support tho other. The loose control ol demo cratic authority,interrupted by the intrigues and inroads ol military partisans, ha* destroyed the country; and it* future tela, whether for good or lor 111, depends upon tho rtvml ch&futt ?/ a rc#f#raft#fi under the auipicti ?/ a repress Pi I nee or of Jtreftojimtrican subjugation. The proclamation of Paredea points, almost without disguise, to th* lormar alternative. He expressly disclaims the intention of assuming the Dictatorship or Presidency for himself. Ha aaaarta that " bis ambition is of a high er ordei;" and that ho aims at effecting a " solid, a great aod a lasting change, by means ol a national assembly, to bo Oonvohod iu <he capital, invested with the tallest power, and without limit to th* sovereign will." Our correspondent gives Parades credit for head strong resolution and honesty ol purpose. Ha la wall known to be acting with tb? lull privity and ttfcourage went of the heads o( the church, in ?o mack that upon tha new* of hia approach to the capital, tha Archoishop of Mexico waa placed under the custody of a guard in lit* country home, about half a league from tha city.? The sympathies of the Roman Catholic clergy aro alto gether favorable to the ancitn ngime, and the pronun tamenta* of the towna have been almoat aa rapid ai tbota of Spain in 1843 If Paradea be content with the precariotia honor of eitabluhing himself in power, hia Government will not be more effective or permanent than thoae ephemeral adminletratlooa Which have pre ceded it. But if be ia powerful and honest enough to remodel the inetitutions ol the country by a formal decla ration of the national will, upon the basis of a restoration if the pint;tplot I moot congenial to the traditions of Spain, of h end of Ker transatlantic descendants, he will have achiev ed the nobleat task that can ba undertaken by the dis interested leader of a counter revolution. No one can doubt that thia movemeat haa been atriclly na tional in it* character. The possibility of such a Change has barely been discussed in Europe; end with whatever favor the idea may have been receiv ed, certainly no European government bea any part in tha manifestation which seems calculated to realize it. A* for the American powers, the government of the Uni ted State* ii bound by Iti own priuoiplaa to pay the moat abeolute defer >nce to the decision ol the Mexican peo ple, whatever that decision may be. They are as free to re-establish a monarchy as tncy ware to proclaim an independent renublic ; and the United Stalei have not the the he it color for apparition to any meaeure, origi with the Mexican people an noting with the Mexican people and the Mexican government, for Ike purpose of placing their territo ry and their population in s'.curily against inter nol anarchy or foreign aggression. An attempt on the ~ ">fnet or t peri of the Cabinet of Washington to frustrate such an arrangement, simply because It would strengthen Mexi co and improve the relation* of that stat* with several European powers, would at once lay bare their own hostile designs, and maks such an interference a just object ofcen ture and resistance throughout the world. But we trust that Paredei will encounter no serious opposition : and that the next mails may apprise us of the proposal* he will make to the Mexican people. The British Corn Trade. [From the London Mark Lane Express, March 2 ] Bp the official statement of stocks, juat publish ed, it appears thstonthe Mh Fsbruary there were l.Udt, 790 quarters of wheat in bond in the United Kingdom : in addition to which, the return show* that the stock of bonded dour had increased to 683,SIS cwts Under ordinary circumstances, we should certainly regard this as a good resarve, but this year our position is altogether singular. The full effects of the potato disorder have not a* yet been developed; even admitting that the extent of the failure baa been greatly exagge rated to serve party purposes, still it cannot for a moment be doubted that the mischief has been very serlons ; an enormous deficiency of an article of food n universal use, has hereby been created which must sooner or later tell. Bread, though more costly, will unquestionably be the substitute most generally em ployed by all those who can afford it ; the poorer ckuses will hare to put up with articles which can be obtained at a cheaper rate?such as barley and oatmeal ?but on wheat the extra consumption will be principal ly thrown. If, therefore, the harvest oflS4A had been a full average, we should still, in all probability, have found it necessary to import; but, so far from thia ha ring been the case, it is admitted almost universally that the prodnce of wheat in Oreat Britain was consider ebly below that of utual average yeara. It appears to us, therefore, that what might otherwise be considered a Urge stock in bond, now affords no guaranty against comparatively high prices, mere particularly as the mmer supplies of foreign are likely, spring end summer consequenc > of the prevailing want lii many of those countiies which usually export their surplus growth to England, to be relatively small. It may further be re marked that wheat is the onlv article of which any ?tocki of importance are held in bond?those of tha infe rior kinds of grain being smaller than usual. To show how the matter stands, the following comparative ta ble may be useful : ? Grain, Flour, and Pulse, in Bond in the United Kinodom, on the &th February. 1846. ?" 1843. 1844. IMS. !8<1.

Flour, cwU 683,813 263,967 91,137 120,331 222.604 In connection with this subject, it must be remember ed that the period ior the release ol the bonded stock is usually the autumn ; hut no liberation took piece in the autumn of 1843. This, in some measure, accounts for the great excess in the quantity under losk at present, com pared with what was held at the corresponding period in former seasons, the prospects of a material alteration in the duties having induced the holdera to allow their wheat 'o remain in bond, instead of liberating it at the usual time. The real diffarence?taking free end lock wheat together?it, therefore, not so great as it appears, ddwra keieg at jraaant scaroely any doty paid foreign in the kingdom ; whilst for several preceding yeara we have, la the month ol February, generally had a con siderable'quantity in warehouse. At length, a division on the corn law debate has taken place, the majority for ministeis being 07. The termina tion to the discuaaiou is not quite so triumphant as was calculated ou by the free-traders, and affords gronon to expeot that the Lords may not pasa the bill inlta present form. The ultimate settlement of the question may there lore be yet delayed for weeks, and the business to grain can scarcely be placed on a sound and healthy footing till the matter shall have both arranged in one way or tiie other. At moet of the leading provincial market* held alnee our lait, the traoMotion* have been on a strictly retail scale; and, *o far from any deiire having been manifest I <-d to increase stocks, the determination to buy no more tbau sufficient to serve for immediate uso has been rigid iy adhered to. Our Scotch advices contain no new feature; the trade in corn having, it seams, mmained in precisely the same state as before. From Ireland the report* are likewise dull, though all the accounts agree in stating that potatoes were daily becoming more scarce, in consequenoe of the disease. Th* Continental Corn Trade# Most of the accounts from the north ol Kurope allude to the uuusual mildness of the season, which appears to have been general over nearly the whole of the conti nent. Some of the ports have hardly been frozen up during any part of the winter, and even in the more tiorthern part* the navigation is now free from iee; there will consequently be no impediment to shipments of grain, should the position of the trade hero be deemed sufficiently encouraging to induce consignments. At present, however, prices are relatively much too high on the other side; and unless wheat advances here, com paratively little is likely to be shipped to Oreat Britain, quotations being higher in Holland and Belgium, to which countries the first shipments from the Baltic are likely to-be directed. The most recent accounts from Danzig inform us that wheat Lad rather advanced there than otherwise, and that for the trifling parcels received from th* interior, equal to Ms per qr. free on board, had been paid. Whsat in granary having been held relatively higher, few bar gains had been closed. From Hostook We learn that in consequence of th* continued flat reports from hence, holders had become rather more anxious to realize, and on the 33d Feb ruary merchants were willing to contract to deliver 63 Ids. wheat free on board In spring, at 48* to 49s per qr. Th* latest accounts from Stettin also describe th* trade as dull; but good red Ukermark was, on the 31st ult, still hold at 48s., and the best Pomeranian at 49s. per qr. free on board. Letters from Hamburg, of Tuesday, inform us that a slight concession had been mad* there by sellers of wheat,which had been followed by some improvement in the demand. One cargo of red Marks, weighing 601b*. Kr bushel, had been sold on the spot, for shipment to igland, at 60s. per qr. free on board; whilst from out ports 8,080 to 4,000 qr*. had been placed, viz:?Pomera nian, of 03 to fltylba. weight, at 49s. 3d., and a cargo to be shipped from Rostock at 60s. 3d per qr. From the Mediterranean we have nothing new to communicate. Advices from Marseilles state that oontrary winds had kept back th* ezpected supplies of wheat from tha Black Sea, Ire.; and that buyers, having been unwilling to operate in the comparatively bar* state of th* market, nothing of interest had been done. At Ancona, on the 18th February, the value of wheat bad slightly tended upwards, in consequence of pur chases tor local consumption. From Odessa the accounts are still of a very firm tone: flue wheat, it appears, had, at th* close or Jenu sry, become very scarce there, and for th* best parcel* high prices were asked : moderately good qualities, weighing 61 lbs. per bushel, were then held at >4s., and th* best at 40s. per qr. free on board. Since writing the above, we have received advices from Konigsberg, dated 31st ult, which state that a sud den change bad occurred in the weather; some frost and a heavy fall of snow having taken place. More or the Freshets. [From th* Buffalo Advertiser, March 19 ] The canal, near Rome, was considarably injured by th* great and sodden rise of water In th* Oriskany creek. At the aqueduct th* water rose so high as to take up ta* bridge connected with the aqueduct, and carry it into th* canal, undermining two of the piers on the east end of the aqueduct, and carrying away two of th# stretchea of th* tow path bridge ana part of th* trunk. Th* Superintendent says he has attempted to sound bottom where one of the pier* stood, but could not. It must have washed out some twenty or twenty five feet deep. The ice has given away below, and th* water is failing, but at present no estimate can be mad* of the expense of repairing-it must, however, be very considerable. Some damage has also been done to th* Schoharie oreek aqueduct, but nothing very serious. [From the Woodstock (Vt.)

Mormon Items?The Warsaw Signal is still keeping a watchlul eye over the doings of the Saints. The last number of that paper, dated the 4th instant, save. The last week has bean a cold and stormy ono ; hence we had but little opportunity to pick up local items. We learn, however, that the Saints are crossing the Mississippi on the ice, the river being closed at Nanveo. They say they will take up the line of March so soonas the weather is settled, and not before. About two thou sand have already crossed. We learn that on Saturday last, a man by the name at Gardner was shot in Nauvoo. by a Mormon named Cot ton, and instantly killed. The cause of the difficult? was this Gardner, who is not a Mormon, has a wito belonging to the church. She wished to emigrate with the Saints, but her husband would not go aleng. She therefore left him. and took up with Cotton. Ala led to the quarrel, which terminated in the death of Gard ner Wo learn that tha Saints took up their lino of march from their encampment in Iowa, on Saturday morning laat. About 2000 want along.

The editor of the jlrfiu says ha knows of ono man who contribu ted in this way, grain, cows, oxen, horaos, and a wagon, who is now told to get himself a team and enough to oat, as the church could not take car# of every body; and bo is so deluded as to act Id obedience thereto. We wish they were out of lewa. Several have gone back to Nauvoo. Meeting op Parliament in Canada.?Parlia ment will assemble on the 20th inatant. Moat of the members hare gena down to Montreal.
