Icwi from Enropr.
The steamship Asia, with one week's later news
fro? Europe, is now in her twelfth day from Liver
pool, and will probably arrive here in the course of
the aftcruoon or evening. She will bring us in
telligence of the formation of the new English
ministry in the place of the Russell cabinet. We
stall publish an extra as soon as her news comes
to hand.
Summary of the Latest Intelligence.
The Senate in special session, yesterday, c?n
ftrmed several additional nominations, a list of
which will be found under our telegraphic head;
and all the business which they were called to
gether for the puriose of transacting having been
acted upon, with the exception of the conrirma
ihd of the cuperintendent of the Custom House,
at New Orleans, they have agreed to adjourn to
day, at one o'clock.
Father Ritchie, it appears, has got ou. ot his
printing difficulties better than it was supposed he
weald. The Senate, yesterday, passed a resolu
tion directing the purcbise from him of forty-five
thousand copies of the Patent Office report. This
will put our venerable cotemporary on his puis
again. We trust we liave seen the last of the
irickst'-jing connected with the public printing.
Another effort was made yesterday by the Mas
sachusetts lrgisJature to elect a U. S. Senator, in
accordance with the coalition entered into some
time since, but without effect. As, on the former
trials, the choice was between Mr. Wmthrop and
Mr. Sumner, the latter wanting seven votes of be
aag elected, which is a falling oil of live since the
previous attempt. We are inclined to believe that
Mr. Sumner * ill cot be returned.
Condition and Prospects of Cab*.
It is reported, by the last steamers from Havana,
that Gen. Concha is about to visit Spain, to consult
wiih the Csbmet of Madrid on ihe introduction of
a general system of reform for that island. At all
tvents, whether he goes or not, he has started a 1
capital movement in the beginning of his adtninu- ,
^ration, by making such investigations, collec.iae
rich facts, and forming such conclusions, as will
rouble him to conduct the government on a w>ser
and tater j olicy th^n any of his recent predecessors
have done.
The arrival of Ceneral Concha in Havana
marks a period m the history of Cuba. Although
he is chiefly distinguished as a military man,
yet he is cified wuh considerable civic talent;
but. above all, he brought to his post one
? uatity which has been, unfortunately, but loo
rare imong those nations which have flourished
under the tropics. He is a man of integrity. Long
accustomed to obey a sovereign, and exact obe
dience from subalterns, he brought to his new
field of service stntuuents of the highest loyalty, j
He bad occasion to show these qualities at once, ,
ea his arrival. The Ciptain < ieneralship of Cuba
had lore been regarded as a sinecure, which had
generally been bestowed on couit favorites. With
h:tle service to renler, an J many honors an 1 per
quisite- to emoy, t V- accumulation of wealth
had become the chief occupation of the gover- j
aors of Caba. With this object ta view, the
poet had usually been sought. It hai been the
custom, for instance, on the arrival of every new
governor, to reaew all the licenses of the itlanl,
which, at a moderate estimate, cost ihe inhabitants
not l'?e than f 100,1)00. It wo understood tha' not
less than two thirds of this sum w-nt to the go.
vernor? the first bribe his loyalty encountered?
the bai.ince ?oing into the pockets of the chief citi
zens, who, under a family itii/a t, swayed th
power of an oligarchy, an<l manured with des otic
author..? aim' st all '.he finmc.al, commercial,, u
dactal. and ecclesi.isuca!* al airsof the islind.

In the meantime, iiacouteni waa aj read Jig? th*
cauie of Cuba wis loudly advocated by some of
our own new jpapera; and things at laat went bo far,
:hat milder measures no longer suited the warmer
and more impolitic Cubaaa. The young Creoles
began to want revolution, aad they even talked
about aaae.iat.oa to .'.he United States But the
great body of the reformers would aot listen
to so fatal a policy; they divided, aad con
sequently decimated their force Men of aenae, m.
tluence, capital and taaracter, recoiled before a
poewble reign of blood and anarchy Thenceforth,
the ultraiats rushed on without restraint, and the
better claates began to retreat. About thia time
the Mexican war ended, and our troops were
recalled. The revolutionists ol Cuba acnt an agent
to Mexico, with overtures to General Worth,
hoping he would lead <m artuy of int daion to join
the insurrectionists, and proclaim a republic on the
island. They prcrn sed him everything ; mdlions,
power, glory. The cautious general only aisked
$100,000 cash in hand "for Lis family, in cuse of an
accident''? but these revolutionists could notrai^e
the money, and General Worth would not go. They
made the same proposals to Governor (Quitman, but
the plan worked ao better. At last these deiperate
n.en hit upon Lopez, aad a bargain was sooa struck ;
it being understood that thia needy adventurer
would work for nothing, if he could only have "the
glory of emancipating Cuba,"' with a crack at the
treasury of Cardenas. Out of thia grew that mad
dest, meanest, and silliest of all modern expeditions,
" the attempt of Lopez;" to chronicle whose events
(which never took place,) has constituted the chief
glory of the veteran financier of Plaintieli bank
memory. It was, doubtless, take it all in all,
the smallest Email-potato expedition the world
has heard of sicce the wonderful battle of the
windmills ? said to have been fought by the re
doubtable knight of Spain, in the days of expiring
chivalry? or the No\y Island invasion. Tin- Lopez
expedition was supported in Cuba only by hot
heads, who had nothing to lose; and in the United
?States only by seedy adventurers, desperadoes,
and a few bamboozled, weak-minded individuals,
like the penny proprietors of the Lo,>ez journal.
The true reformers of Cuba never dreamed, at any
time, of breaking with Spain? they knew it was
ruin.
When the fog . i the Lope/ expedition cleared
away, the moderate men? the genuine reformer* ?
needed new organs, through which to apeak to the
world They established them, and tried to wipe
out the staia of the Lopez attempt. It was natural
they should take strong royalist ground? tVy did.
Sucn was the old game, and such the hurried
troves and check-matinga en the political chess
board of Cuba till the arrival oi? the new Governor
General. We hive already described his poaitiou,
and indicated hia policy. What he will do, re
mains to be aeen. He muat make aome decisive
! movements, lor Cuba cannot stand still. Like
Canada in the time ci McKen/.ie, the Lopez ot
that decade, ?he is in a state 01 transition. She
cannot long remain where che is. What will she
do ! She has no prospect of independence. It is,
perhaps, even the last desire ot her people. And if
it were cot, the men who own the property of the
island will not hazard it, with their lives, on the
tdro table of rebellion. She haa no pros
I>ect of help worn the United Statea, and
least ot all of annexation. We have an
nexed enough for the present. Until we can
| invent some (now unknown) way of disposing ol I
I our new territory, without splitting our republic,
we may as well let oiht r people keep what beU ngs
to them. We have taken from the old empire of
Castile quite as much as we can well d jest tor the
I present.
Meantime, what is to l>ecome of Cuba? We hoj*
I Gen. Concha will go to Madrid, and carry the facta
with him. Sometime?, a man who ha* advanced
money- on. a second mortgage, has to raise more cash
to sweei> oit .he first. ThU may be the case with
Spain. She mutt do tomething. She cac, and
probably will, not only *ave her " Qaeen of the
Antilles," but by a wise, timely, and liberal po
licy, render that genial and verdant island not only
the tairest, but the aecurest, gem in her crown.
Concha is an honest, a brave, and a generoas mm.
It he embraces the whole subject in hia surrey,
elaborates from searching investigations a wise and
pr< jjreaaive policy, and cun brine the Spimati min
utry to unction his views, he will ,>rove the second
Cortez of old Castile in the new world. Be it so.

day we received another contribution of an English
sovereign, which was It ft at this office by a bene
volent Kngluh gentleman, with the request that
we would baud it to Mrs. Thompson, the widow
of the late One-Eyed Thompson, one of the most
Mngnler criminals of the present age of social
ism, philosophy, and crime. In fact, since the
ru?e of mesmerism, Rochester knocking?, so
' cialism, and all the other isms of the day, it
I seems to be a question put to our citizens each
moming, 44 Who committed suicide yesterday 1"
<' Who has taken his thirty-two grains of mor
| phine1" 44 Who has cut his throat 1" 44 Who has
hung himself V' 44 Who has rushed madly into eter
nity, unprepared and uncalled for V' Since the rise
of the socialist and infidel philosophy of the pre
sent day, self-destruction and crime have increased
to such an extent, that it has been gravely pro
posed to organize a 44 Board of Suicide," for the
express purpose of considering applications, and
j giving permits to Buch persons as actually ought to
i take away their own lives, and go into the other
! world We saw such a project, among other isms,
recorded in the columns of a co temporary, the abo
| lition Tribune of this city. What strange mad
| ness seizes on the human mind in particular ages
j of the world, when |the power and principles of
i practical Christianity, and the example of the Re
| deemer are set at nought, and philosophy and pride
j control men's minds !
Hut of One Eyed Thompson, whose fatal termi
| nation of a criminal life, exhibited in stool-pigeon
' operations in this city and neighborhood, we have
! yet much to say, both in the way of biography and
I moral elucidation. We expect to receive a nume
rous batch of his private letters, covering a spice
of several years, from the pages of which some
; extraordinary traits of hi- singularly criminal cha
racter, with descriptions of his intimates, associates
a ad confederates in the stool-pigeon business of
this city, will be mentioned and exposed. In the
. meantime, while we are endeavoring to depict the
errors of such principles, and the fatal destiny of
j such men, we hope that it may turn to some good
i account in the benevolent mind, favorable to the
poor widow and family who have been left behind,
| and who have thus far been aided and supported
| by anonj mous contributions from benevolent per
j sons, coming through our hands. Let the work

Milwaukie, ( Wi*.), Jan. M, 1851.
Joh* P. Crvd>:r, E?s ., New York,
Dear Sir ?Your letter of the fith inst. 1* received,
in which you speak of the disappointment and losa by
reason ot the non arrival i f the package of papera,
deemed by you as essential to the validity of the
bonds and moitgagea fold to you by our company on
the ith of November last.
It baa been a aomoe of much trouble and regret to
myself, (after having done all in my power to expedite
the buaineek) to learn from your letter, aa aUo from
the letter ot Messrs. Jaadon k Co., of the 7th inst
that 1 bad failed to me?t your expectation*, in not
procuring the desired papers as soon aa expected? and
more especially to learn that you regard the execu
tion cf theee (ubaequent papera as a part of the origi
nal contract, so mach ho as to conatitute a oondlcion
precedent to tbe payment of the regular instalment*
under that contract
You will. I have no dcubt. do me the justice to re
member that I made a;aurney to Milwaukee, and back
agaia toN. York. lor the expresa purpose ol putting the
papers inio just au;h shape as required by your coun
sel, atid as deemed by him to be sufficient; which, at .er
careful examination by him. were lutlj executed
under his supervision, en the 6th ot November at
which time y oz. made the first payment. That an the
10th day ot November -eleven days afterwards - ou
my return firm New Hampshire, you requested the
additional paper*, which I promised to hasten with the
' utmost fidelity, and which, for personal consideration,
I have lelt In honor bound to IMOBylUk II soon as
{ possible, and have regretted extremely the necessary
| delays, and consequent disappointment to yourseli.
; But I did not however, then know th it you claimed
: this as a matter of right, ot as a condition precedent
to the payment of the regular instalment*, as they
! should become due, but rather as a request for addi
tional facilities tor putting those bonds and mwrtg?g>"i
into market under ai favoratle light, and as fren from
objections as possible.
1 have written Mr. McKay; also Messrs. ' 'idon &
Co.. (requesting th m to communicate with you upon
the subject.) detailing some of the numerous embar
rassment* which we have had to contend with In ob
taining these additional papers, with the hope at least,
(however yon may regard the contract,) that you will
not allow our company to suff?r in character unjustly,
from rau*e* not under our eoatrol
1 enclosed to you. by mail, on the 18th inst, the
balance ol aselgnments and three more ot the written
admission* of mortgager*; but there are yet ten ad
mission* whidh a* yet we have been unable to obtain.
Seme of these men are in tbe dtate of Illinois, ou busi
ness or visits, and come refuse to sign the admission,
without giving any reasons why.
I telegraphed you tbe 23d inst , that if you de-m It
I necenary. we will substitute other good mortgages for
thoee lacking the admissions I would farther aug
Rest the propriety ot re assorting the packagee, and
putting those lacking admission* into a package by
1 theaiaelve*, to meet the last instalment which shall
I become due by which time we can pi obably arrange
? the omission* or *ub*titut*a. to your aatiafaotion. Our
| directors will meet again ob the 12th of February at
I which time I shall lay the whole subject before our
i board, with your correspondence connected therewith,
I for their favorable consideration
In th? meantime, my dear sir. I wish you to feel
assured that our company will regard it no less a
pleasure, than it will be for their interest (under our
present financial arrangements In NswVork ) to es
tablish and maintain a character tor business trans

Wtoif *d*v, March 12 ?8 P.M.
There was more activity in the itoek market to day.
The tranmctions la Reading Railroad amounted to
nearly three thousand shares. Government au t State
stocks and Railroad bonds were offered in large let*.
Prices were not sustained. and the market doted
heary. At the tirst board. Farmers' Loan fell off \ p?r

told at SO but were offered afterwards at )? par cent
less. Taney stoeks are too much concentrated in If all
street, and there is a great scarcity of outside opera
tors. Brokers are Urge holders, and are anxiously
waiting a demand from speculators. It U oar ia
pressioo M?nt there will not be for some time any spe
culative movement ol eonse joe nee In stooks generally.
Some of the leading stocks may be taken np, and
prices Inflated considerably beyond present points,
while others will be hammered down by the bears as
mash as possible. In this way the machinery
may be kept in operation, but we do net see
the slightest inclination of an upward move
ment throughout. There are it oaks on the list
cheap at current rates, while others are too high
?ad will, without doubt, fall off The merits and de
merits of eaeb stock operated la will be pretty well
eaavassod by speculators before becoming Involved la
either movemeat ; and la tiaiea like these there is
?ore probability of getttag at the real facts In relation
to each tbaa In times of greater excitement All the
jaad stoeks are well sustalaed amidst the depression.
Portsmouth Company Is la demand, but holders are
not disposed to sell. Ths valuable property ot the
company, aad Its prospective productiveness, give
stockholders such ooafideaoe that present prices
are ao object; and the ladacemeats to hold ars so
great thatf only a few shares Had their way out dally.
Kdgeworth Is slowly recovering from the depression
caused by the snspeasloa ot a heavy holder. Cantoa
Company remains firm at ear quotatioas There Ls ao
aaxlety amoag holders to sell Norwich aad llsrlem
are the two firmest railroad stoeks oa the list; aad, at
present pilces. must attract purchasers for lavestment.
The prospects ef the Darlem road are so tlatteriag. that
dividends this year, on Its par valae, will, without
donbt, be tqaal to tlx per cent, at least, oa eighty .

It to etas let a lawyer of swindliar . and I l? s 111

ordeal. We leave it to thoee who have el is. ly wat
|be progress of ths reastat lavsatigatioa* In ou .? c nits,
to solve the mystery W ithln the pa?t three aoath'
'hree distinct charges of swindling era>islen>en'
fraud, (whateter It can be called) have been pr?lerr?d
against certain parties |a which between two and I
three hundred thon>acd dollars are Involved en I the
probability Is. fiom present appearances that th-y wli,
be lost sight of oa< rf these days, acid the par.les

We leara that a meetlag ot the dlrenl rs at the
Reading Railroad Company Is about being hell, te
take Into consideration the propriety of redacts/ the
tolls for the transport a tloa of coal during the present
season The comp-ti'ioa ab"ut taklag place In the
eeal bne nese will love the eoaapaay to mike au i m

which has heretofore turned oat very little. Prom

that the artiole will be eheap*r this ssa*on than ever
Hlors ???,?*? ineitioa i? what so Ci-Ultri to

the probability i*. that tha Reading Railroad Company
will be the gTeateit sufferer *n the struggle. Any f*
duotion in tolls will be death to its dl> idende, an*
even with tka present tariff of eaargea, Its full oapacit v
must ha?a active employment. Estimate* hare beer,
circulated showing a business of 1 500.(00 ton* at $1 5-t

four month*, the entire monopoly of the coal carrying
trade of the Bobuylkill region. These eitioutaa ai?
extravagant and ridionlou* and are made to attract
outsider*, and induoe them to purchase the stock ?t
present and higher prices.
