T\t Arrangementt of i'njluiti/ for the Pacific Mail
Sttamert?Slit of the Cuiuird Steanurt Caledonia
ami Hibtrnux, 4"''. 4rc.
I am able to assure you, on unquestionable authority,
that the British government h;is just concluded
an arrangement with the Pacific Steam
Navigation Company, (whose head-quarters are in
Liverpool) for a tortnigbtly m til contract, for a i>eTiod
of ten years, between 1'auama and Valpiraiso.
I am aware, also, that to meet and carry out this
ervice as early as pocsible, the company hive
already contracted for three additional iron steamers,
of great speed and capacity, which will leave
England, for the Pacific, in the course of nine
In the meantime, the existing arrangements,
namely?u monthly mad service throughout the
Whole line, and a bi-monthly service between Callao
and Valparaiso?will be continued by the said
Company, which hold, fortunately for themselves,
exclusive privileges from the local governments.
Their stei.meis touch, to land and einbirk passengers,
bid, like wit e, the English and local mails,
at no fewer thun thirty-two ports on the round voy
ag?*; at d it is certainly, in a measure, ludicrous to
find our e>ld, good nature^, yet overtaxed friend,
John lii.il, magnanimously providing this* mail
service, (? hu h is available equally to nil nations of
the world) at that distant put of the glob.-, at an
expense of from ?20,000 to A'lKl.OOO per annum: but
from win li.-trvice ili>- I i Ji*'i exchfCquer does
not receive more than Jtj (KM) a year It i* true that
the trsliic in goods and (Kisoeo^ers along the coast
of lViu, liolivia. Chili, Ecuador and New Granada,
(a stemming distance of considerably more ttion
3,(NH) mil'i) is totally inadequate of itself (i.e.
without the aid of government P?y) to support even
a monthly fleam line. Nevertheless, we are about
to wrn< . and benefit by, a bi-uiuntkly line of
Btean.eis You must be aw?re that i( is a notorious
fact th.' when Mr. Wheelwright, the originator
uf this l-i ::lii>h steam company, tirst introduced
two sif en >rs t n the waters of the Pacific, the remit
w?s ruinous to the proprietors, and hut for the
aid of tLe I'.niish government the enterprise must
have bun altogrter abandoned.
A veiy ddlerent field is that beiween I'anama
and San Franci&co, thanks to California. There,
the MtUMM of the United States people are realizing
a rich harvest.
The foregoing facts could not, I thought, fail of
l>eing interesting; and I rather plume myself on
having?I may, |>erha|?s, say exclusively?obtained
this early intelligence on the subject.
I 1 can inform you, too, that the Ilibemia and the
Caledonia have been sold. The Caledonia has
lini.sheii her u iirL in |||K ?...ririee III' lh? Kritiuh .jr.,I
North American Mail Company; and tin- liibeinn
commences, lo day, her last voyhgsin that service.
To replace the.?e, two steamers of greater |Kivver
and length than the Asm, will be, without delay,
constructed. The Alrica will leave Greenock, for
this port, in a fortnight hence.

Louis Xajwleon, as we are informed by telegraphic
despatches, has proceeded as far at Lons
le Saunier, in the Department of .lura. You will
ee in the French (tapers which 1 forward to you 1
by this mail, the whole details of his reception at |
Macon, Lyons, and other small cities through
which he passed. It is not, 1 think, my duty to ,
give you these particulars?which may be found in
all the newspaper*; 1 w ish only to furnish you with
the refer? Ut In midaille, and all the chit chat which
is not d*tailril in the journals of France. It is a

these tilings are proofs that our President his found
many opjionents to his Tiews am?ti?t thepopulitieu
of our department*. As f >r his speeches, no
oi.e can deny that they are stamped with the spin'
ol a greut and serious politician. < >ne may remark
three imptittHtit declsraUoiis in the-* speeches:?
first, the repudiation ol a u>vp d'etat ; t.econd, the
eiitite submission to the wishes of the people;
thud, the display of the French tl ig in opposition
to the w hite tlag of Weisbaden. It is well, also,
to say thiit not a word has been said by him about
tbe N v rn.i'lv, tli*' great |'nwer ol the nation

There is, as I wrote, much uncertainty about the
character of the reception made by the people of
our departments to Louis Na|>oleon. The newspnpers
of Pari* are daily publishing the moat contradictory
articles on this subject; but, as far as [
can judge from their news, our President is followed,
in all the cities through which he has
already i<assed, with a sort of hatred which will
undoubtedly do him more good than injury. I
cannot pass with silence the event which took
place at Ueaancon on tke evening of the 19th inst.
The citizens ol I he capital of the Department of

!t is certain that Austria has now more influence

The journey of the President has somewhat
checked the animation of Paris. The passion for
political czcitenient, the expectation of some unforeseen
event tailing place in the departments, sad
changing the state of our affairs, has some influence
on the dissipation which is daily observed
in our public places. The theatre*, with the exception
of the rainy evenings, which have been
very numerous during the past week, have been
empty, and, in spite of the efforts made by the
managers, did not pay expenses. The gardens,
where Terpsichore has established her funny and
fancy balls, have been deserted, and all attention is
n#?w directed to Lyons, Strasbourg, other
cities wheie Louis Napoleon is now remaining or
bus been.
We have enjoyed, on three different occasions,

down Broadway, headed by Bodworth's Band)
to the foot of Canal street, where the steamboat Sam
son received them, with the numerous ladies and gentlemen
who had been invited to this file. Among the

Mr K. de Lafayette and Mr. de Lasterye, grandsous ot
General Lafayette, who lately arrived In thli eity; Mr
Berg, the French Vice Consul of New York, and somu
other gentlemen, whose names are very well known
for their respectability and the esteem In which they
are held by the community
When the company and all the invited guests had

to Striker's Buy, where she landed her animated
carge. There the Laiayette Ouards. Captain Leclere,
to whom this company ut militia owes its perfect organization
and its present prosperity, were reviewed
by Mr. K de Lafayette and Mr. de Lasterye, the latter
gentleman being himself a Captain ot the National

French ladies and gentlemen seated at the same table,
