I Kr<im the Buenoa Ayres Packet. Jan 11 ]
We fee J authorised to announce a Might improve
ment in the general tone and prospects of our mar
ket. The panic consequent on the late crisis has
greatly subsided, and capitalist* are less chary in
affording the accommodation necessary in a com
mercial community. In articles suited to the in
terior markets, there has latterly been a considera
ble demand, although still at low figures, from the
heavy stocks on hand, and the eager competition of
sellers.
'lite importation* during the month of December,
are formidable in appearance, though, perhaps,
from the nature of the assortments, not so much so
in intrinsic \alue. At the same time, the consump
tion of this capital and province, especially in ar
ticles of primary necessity, is greatly increased,
from the rapid increase of population, from immi
f ration and natural causes. He-ides, a new distri
ution has gradually taken place, that tends to
alleviate the inure immediate pressure. The spirit
of over speculation and monopoly among the local
traders, has received a severe and salutary check,
and a greater amount of the existing stock remains
in the hamls of the importers, with a proportional
reduction of local liabilities. This fact is more im
portant than may at first sight appear, and affords
a beautiful illustration of the ni medicatrix wittu tr,
or the self rectifying process of nature. The reck
less competition ot speculators and monopolists,
tended to mislead importers, and the supplies
ordered ware regulated more by the apparent de
mand, than the actual consumption. As matters
>tand at present, we have a sale guarantee against
the recurrence of this error, a principal cause of the
lnt? derangement, and of the present languor and
lassitude of this market.
The active demand for country produce, and the
higb prices obtained, especially for wool, has lat
terly put a large amount of capital in circulation;
to which we may add the opportune and considerate
liberality of the government, in paying off the war
jinbaidic'i, and spiritedly carrying on a variety of
important local improvements that tend directly to
alleviatetlie immediate pressure, whilst they confer
a lasting benefit on the country. Society naturally
subdivide-, itself into distinct grades and classes;
but their interests are more intimately blended and
mutually dependent, than many are apt to imagine.
When the industrial and pioductive classes arc
fully employed and prosperous, genuine trade and
commerce cannot long remain depressed; aud the
ca?ie&t aud only effectual w ay of protecting and
promoting the latter, is to afford free scope and en
couragement to the former.
In tne Comercutdd Plata of Montevideo, we have
latterly observed a eaptious and unfounded theory
on this point; showing an absolute ignorance, or,
what wauld be worse, a gross and willful perversion
of the elementary principles of economical science.
In a series of articles on the I'aper Money of Buenos
Ayre-s, intended merely to denigrate the adminis
tration of (Jeneral Hosas, the editor attempted to
show the practicability, and consequent obligation,
of remedying or alleviating the late cri.-is, by a
system of loans to individuals from the l'ublic Trea
sure. In the first placc, no government entitled
to do with public funds, what a pru< individual
would decline doing with his private tortune ; and,
isecondly, the expedient, if acted upon, would, to a
certain extent, have sanctioned ami encouraged the
error, ami ultimately aggravated instead of allevi
ating the e^. Between ounce speculations and at
tempted monopolies of imported goods, the com
merce of Huenos Ayres had, in many instances, lost
its legitimate character; and any attempt on the
part of the government to save individuals from
the consequences of their own reckless conduct,
would have been a positive injury and injustice to
to the public, without accomplishing the end pro
posed.
With his intuitive sngaeity and correct apprecia
tion of abstract principles, ? eneral Kosas pursued
? very different coarse. Instead of attempting to
->ave individual", he acted on the broad and equita
ble principle of allevintiug, as far as possible, the
general body. l>uring the first shock of the grand
crisis, lie ordered the immediate payment ot' up
ward* of two millions of return duties; and the en
tire disbursements on this account t hroughout the
jear, amount to no less than .?? reals.
Ifeavy payments were at the same time made to in
ditiuuaU on account of a long standing arrear of
war aubeidiea. Availing himself of the favorable
state of tltf market, and conciliating, as in duty
l>ound, the public ser* ice with a social convenience,
an abundant supply of clothing and other neces
xariea, was laid ib for the army and navy, and the
watebait.-es of the State amply furnished tor the
coming year. Add to tbesettte active employment
already alluded to. in important local improve
ments, and it will l>e seen that General Kosas did
all that could be doiM with propriety in the circum
stance*; alleviating tlie pressure ot public mi-t'or
tune, by the discharge ot public obligations, and
with the ta^t of an enlightened and provident states
man, rendering his present outlay, subservient to
the future security aud prosperity of the republic.
That partie- in Montevideo, an ustoiued to forestall
the fot we, and live from <lay to day on the preca
rious bounty of a foreign subsidy, should not eotn
Crehend tlie operation of sueh a system, is little t<>
e wondered at; but common prudence might at
least teach them to avoid the use of silly sneer* an I
.??rca.-m-. (hat recoil witb overwhelming force on
the head - of their spiteful authors.
A rou.-idirable amount of export biudneM wa>

wool, roantry produc* conic* in rery slowly. The

Among the ubjeeti of art from France, the moat
attractive will be the colossal group of M. Jean da
Seignear, representing St. Michael overthrowing
Satan. The subject Is taken from Milton. This
/roup 18 thirteen feet high, the figure* being nine
feet in proportion. The conception is bold and
original.
Valuable work of art from spain.
A gentleman has arrived in 1-Ingland from Barce
lona, having with him a mosaic table of the most ex
traordinary beauty. It would be difficult to form a
correct notion of the immense labor bestowed on this
porduct ion of skill, or of its e xceeding beauty, without
seeing it, and having explained to the beholder the
almost numberless pieces which it comprises, and the
period that a large number of individual* have been
occupied in it? composition. We believe that it is
intended to offer this extraordinary work of art as
a present to the Queen, and then to request her per
mission for it to form a j>art of the enduing exhibi
tion.
COMTI BUTTONS FIOM THE BLIND.
The Gattxheud Obxervrr states that, if on no other
account, the fact that her Majesty is the patron
of the Royal Victoria Asylum for the Mind, es
tablished in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, would have
promoted the committee to aid an exhibition
of industry projected by her royal consort, Prince
Albert. But tliere is also the additional motive
of winning new wreaths for the blind girls, and
attracting new customers to the institution. ?
i Therefore, all the resources of the fair inmates
? have been taxed, and three contributions have
j been made which will vie in taste and ingenuity
i with any productions of t lie kind that may be sent
! by rivals endowed with the advantage of sight.
I There is, first, a veil of white linen thread, an exact
! counterpart of tho tribute loyally paid by the Vic
? toria Asylum to the queen on the liixh Level
( Bridge. This will be exhibited on light blue satin.
, There will also be a veil, similar in pattern, made
from black woollen thread, exhibited on orange
satin. The third and last contribution is a Spanish
mantilla of black woollen thread,cxhibitedon orange
1 satin, which must strongly tempt many a maiden's
heart to disregard the tenth commandment. The
three contributions will be enclosed in a glass eas<j,
i lest fair fingers should itch to handle the shawl and
veils. "Tiy them on."

THE EXPECTED C BOWB 01* FOREIGNERS.
[From the London Times. March 14 ]
We hare but little time left to set our house in
order, before the arrival of our expected visiters
from the continent <>f Europe. Cireat activity U
shown uncertain points, anil great neglect upon
others. Now, we much doubt if any very great
: discretion is exercised in the selection of itnprovc
' merits. For example, almost preternatural activity
has been displayed in hitching the mirble arch into
position at Cumberland-gftte. It is a question if
eyes which have been accustomed to rest upon the
i Arc de l'Ktoile, or the Hr&ndenburg gate, will
derive much gratification from the spectacle. Again,
' as we have been informed, considerable exer
: tions have been made to get the armed war
riors of the Tower, and the apartment appro
priated to their use, into presentable trim, lieiiry
VIII. h?s been for some weeks past enveloped in
a richly-sprigged dressing-gown: a railway rug
, has been wrapped round the shoulders of the
* gallant Brandon; anl the heads of the buff-coated
soldiers of the com mun wealth hive been comfort
ably swathed in linsey-woolsey nightcaps, lest
their armor should contract soil oe stain while the
beautifying is in progress. This is all well enough
in iti way, but our foreign visiters could very well
have dispensed with this excess of steel-dandyism.
? It would have given u< more satisfaction to hear
that the shabby dean and chapter of the metropo
litan cathedral had finallv suppressed the paltry lee
i exacted at their gates. Far ne it from us, however,
to sneer nt the exertion* of those who, within their
particular departments, are doing their utmost to
]sdi>h up " the sights of London. We would only
suggest that there are other points of more imme
diate importance to the comfort of our visitors,
which should not he lost sight of in the midst of all
this scrubbing and varnishing. The principal ob
ject which a Frenchman, or a German, or an Italian
will have in view during his stay in London will of
; eout?e be the "great exhibition" itself. The prac
, tical problem for his solution will be how, in the
most economical and comfortable manner, he can
be lodged, fed, and conveyed about the town during
the iieiiod of his stay.
The question of supplying bed and b )ard to our
expected guest# must, of course, bo left in t h'? hands
j of private speculators. Snne misgivings we may
secretly t ntertain uj?>n the amount of comfort they
, mar manage to extract from our feather-beds and
I underdone beefsteaks ; but in such a matter ad
ministrative interference i 4 a mere impossibility.
The ft w who can afford to pay largely will fare
well. The many who must look somewhat closely
I tothecost of their entertainment will no doubt ex
perience various degrees of discomfort and sutfering.
Tint if wecan do nothing for them 011 this point, at
, Ica?t wecan insist that every facility shall ne given
them lor tea versing the streets of London without b -
1 ing subjected t? any very grievous extortion or an
noyance. The distance* ??!' London, even to the in
habitant- of the largest continental capital, appear
enormous. In addition to this evil, which is irre
deemable, it must tie remembered that the uniform
ity in the a p poo ranee of our streets reniers it a
task of very great difficulty for any but a
well seasoned Londoaor to find his way from
< ne oiner of the town to the other. Foreigners
sre under the absolute necessity of relying up
on public conveyances? omnibuses, cab-, and the
like. As far as the omnibuses are concerned,
we are not aware that much can be done, beyond
enforcing it as a peremptory rnlo that nut ice -hull
I'o kim n in -ome unniisiaka bli manner of the points
at which half-fart's end and whole fare* begin. Even
: it 11 certain d gn e of imposition is inevitable under

The i.o:m dit g' and pla'n fittings on the enstom
Hide of the building are now nearly complete, ami
an opportunity is a?w4>d of forming sn appro ti
mnli estimate of the amount of the coalriiiations
1 of ,.jv . d fi 0111 loreign countries. Many ofth^nom.
I ? 1 1 nv nt - are, as ytf, quite fmifty? Sv artiral*
from the United States have taken place up to the
prevent time; and Bratil, Mexico, and Greece, seem
equally dilatory. From Norway and Sweden same
mall consignments have been forwarded, and K us
fia has already contributed about 230 packages. The
quantity of goods which have reached the build
ing itself from Austria, is inconsiderable, the bulk
of the product* of that country being retaiued in the
dock warehtMM* until the space set apart for their
display is fitted up. A number of German carpen
ters aie at present busily employed, and nearly the_
whole of the counters and cases in that portion of
the Austrian compartment which is on the
north side of the ceutral avenue, will be con
structed by them. The most copious contri
butors hitherto are the Zollvereiu, Belgium, aud
Switzerland; and in the Chinese coiu|>artmeut there
is alreadv a respectable assemblage of cases.
France, however, strange to say, is very much
behindhand. The number of packages received
from thut country up to yesterday, did not much
exceed 120. This unusual inactivity on the part
of our (iallic neighbors does not, however, uriso
from indifference to the result of the friendly con
test in which they have engaged. On the contrary,
they arc deeply impressed with the importance of the
advantages which will bo obtained by those who
are victorious in the struggle, but certain misappre
hensions respecting the amount of space placed un
der the control of their commissioners have effectu
ally retarded the transmission to this country of
their contributions. The space assigned to France
if exceedingly ample, embracing in the whole about
a hundred thousand squaie feet, and constituting
little less than a tenth of the whole exhibiting
space of the building. Out of this one hundred
thousand feet, it was most distinctly inti
mated by the executive committee, during their
correspondence with the French commission, that
50, (XXI feet should be deducted for walks aud pas
sages. It would seem, however, that the French
local committees dealt with their contributors ad if
the whole 100,000 feet were vailable for the display
of their production*. Notice was given to persons
who had obtained gold medals in their own exposi
tions, that an unlimited quantity of goods would be
received from them, and silver medallists wore led
to believe that their treatment would be little
less liberal. The natural consequence of these in
considerate proceedings was an influx of contribu
tions, for the accommodation of which the very
ample space accorded was totally inadequate.
Upon the discovery of this unpalatable fact, various
de\ ices were put in requisition by the French au
thorities, to procure either an extension of their
spacer, or a curtailment of the extent of the pas
sages by whieh they are traversed. The execu
tive committee, however, were inexorable. They
pointed to the faet that the original number of
British contributors was 9,000, who, by the exercise
called on the French commissioners to exercise a
similar system of vigorous compression, and to re
ject everything not .-tuin]>ed with indisputable excel
lence of some kind. They are at present employed,
we believe, in this work of pruning, and when tho
vast mass of contributions with which they have to
deal (hall have been reduced within the requisite
dimensions, the arrivals of French productions at
the building will no doubt be liirgo and frequent.
Among the most interesting of the foreign arrivals
during the last few days is a colossal figure of a
lion in bronze, which has been forwarded from Bava
ria, and is the work of the sculptor, F. von Miller.
It is upwards of nine feet high, and will form one
of the most remarkable objects in the Exhibition.
In the British half of the building the visible
signs of progress during the past week are even
more striking than in the foreign compartments.
The stall- and fittings in the galleries are multiply
ing fast, and no small advance has been made in the
adjustment of some of the heavy machinery which
has arrived. The goods now pouring in arc, of
course, of the most miscellaneous character. The
light spring cart conveying some delicately con
structed piece of mechanism, which is handed in by
its fabricator with as much care and tenderness as if
it were a sick infant, alternates with the ponderous
wagon sustaining some huge piecc of machinery
who^e reluctant weight Ls dragged with difficulty to
its destination by the united ettorts of a dozen horses.
On Thursday about five hundred tons weight of
machinery arrived at the building. Amongst this
was the celebrated Britannia hydraulic press, by
which the lifts of tho tube- of the railway bridge
over the Menai were effected; some detached por
tions of thi- wonderful machine weigh no less than
15 tons. Amongst the heavy machines fixed in
their place* are a machine for illustrated printing, a
brick-making machine, an enormous but very beau
tifully constructed and powerful crane, and a smoke
consuming machine, i'he foundations of sereral
others arc in progress, and a strenuous activity pre
v ails in the '? machinery quarter" of the building ?
an activity by no means uncalled for, when the
shortness of the time is taken into consideration, in
which thefixingofthe ra^t assemblage of machines,
destined fur exhibition, must be completed.

j nite had alwevs sf?-> tally ibrdnl itself to the c*lti
' \ at ipb wl auU '.'tnu?k <v??t nuuit, iu the great bum
of Englishmra it had become practically extinct a*
a principle of Mtion, except *o far as it occasionally
colored their view of the everlasting perplexities of
the Irish question. Then came the Pope * brief and
andthe Cardinal's pastoral. The eneuiy, who had
passed into the condition of a myth, astuined a pal
pable and aggressive reality, aud a point and mean
ing was given to lessons which had hitherto been
sterile. ?The country seemed, for the moment, to
rally to Exeter Hall, and iudignation at encroach
ment began burning with an intensity which would
doubtless have been less violent in ita immediate
manifestations if our contact with the usurping pow
er had been closer and more constant. Just so, the
New England populations have been brought up in
convent tonal abhorrence of negro slavery, against
whieh the whole economy of their society is
a standing protest. Hitherto they have contem
plated it from a distance, through tho obscure aud
embarrassed medium of sectional controversies at
Washington, and they have been content to aban
don its permanent condemnation to the abolitiouist
societies. The Fugitive Slave bill passes; an arrest
is effected in their streets ? and lo ! the accursed thing
is there in the midst of them. A just cause has
been damaged by the excess of irritatiou in which
they have momentarily indulged; and it would bo
vain to deny that their turbulence contrasts very un
favorably with the dutiful, though reluctant, acqui
escence of the Middle States, whose intercourse with
he South has furnished a due corrective to their
judgment on the matter.
'1 ncre is little room for doubt that tho measures
whieh have convulsed the Boston populace were ex
pressly shuped to that cud l>v their authors. The re
covery, untfer process, of a slave from New England
Involves so much trouble, vexation, and expense, that
it is morally impossible that it should be undertaken
as a commercial speculation; and, indeed, we believe
thut the two arrests attempted have been separately
traccd to the malignity of a disuniouist volunteer.
As it is probable that new provocatives will be freely
administered, the degree of subsequent danger will
depend on the grearer or less rapidity with which
the New Engfanders resume tneir characteristic
reverence for the law. Patriotic counsel does not
appear to be wanting; and really among the most
ingenious, if not the most scrupulous, of the
advocates of moderation, we must class the author
of the placard directed against Mr. CJeorgc Thoiu]*
son, w nich we printed yesterday. Tho member fur tho
Town Hamlets has been perambulating the North
eastern States on what he styles, with considerable
vairrtt, a " professional tour, aud we hear that he
has already nad the distinguished honor of creating
some half-ilftcen riots. An opponent of less perspi
cacity would have missed the advantage afforded by
Mr. riioin]>soii's English distinctions; but Lexing
ton is down on the sore point in an instant, ana,
dexterously commencing with calling his victim an
"English serf," he proceeds to argue that u member
of tho British Parliament who devotes himself to
sedition in America, must necessarily have been
paid by his government to bring the Union into con
tempt. Perhaps this is a little too bad. Mr.
Thompson's pecuniary transactions are scrupulously
confined to dealings with Oriental despots; and we
believe that it would be unfuir to inler, from his
connection with the cabinets of Delhi and Sattura,
that he is a stipendiary of Lord Palinerston's on
mission. We find it stated that lie intends to re
main a little longer in America, for tho purpose of
living down calumny; but, for his own sake, and for
the jieace of the country, we trust he will return at
once; and the next time he falls into conversation
with his political friends on the subject of General
Haynau, |>erhups he will describe to them the pecu
liarly correct impression of a distinguished foreigner
which nn enlightened mob derives from rumor and
the newHpnjK'r*.

Tiie French Presidency. ? I am assured, says
the Paris correspondent of the l^omlon Times, that
the secret societies are decided on bringing forward
u }tcrson taken from the lower orders of the people,
as a candidate for the Presidency of the republic in
1852, and they arc now very busy in seeking such
a candidate. An operative was at first suggested;
but, on consideration, it was thought better to try
to gain over the sympathies of the country people,
and the probability is thut a peasant will be selected.
Irish Linen Tram. ? This week yarns are still
dull, and stocks accumulating. Some persons have
? reduced their yarns ltd. per bundle, and a further
1 reduction is expected in a few days. Weavers still
continue at outdoor lubor, as the weather ii favora
ble for such. In some districts not one halt1 of the
; weavers are engaged at their looms. In Bally
mcua, on Saturday, sales of cloth were inactive,
and in fine sets manufacturers had to give way a
little, and a good quuntity of cloth was left unsold.
In Armagh our correspondents write us that cloth
was a shade in favor of buyers. Yarns were sold to
them lower, and in some cases at a h igher discount
off for cash payments. In Lurgan damasks con
tinued brisk at former rutes, and eagerly bought
up. The Coleraine market was dull, ami cloth
was bought by somo merchants at fully Jd. per
yard reduction in low sets, and Id. in finer quali
ties. The news from the United Stutes is rather
discouraging for 4-4 light linens, cambric handker
chiefs, and blay linens, as art advance on former
quotations cannot be obtained upon those goods.
The sales are brisk enough, but prices are very
low. Several of the vessels that were out since
October and November, had not yet made their ap
pearance at New York when the last steamer left;
and we may here remark that the packet ship York
shire has put back to Holyhead leaky, with a most
i valuable cargo of linen goods. There is a large
quuntity of our northern merchants' linens aboard
tlie vessel, but we are glad to hear that the goods
are ell insured either in London or New York. \N*e
understand several of our new flax-spinning mills
will be in active operation next month. Several of
the millowners have raised their workers' wages, as
many had signified their intention of leaving and
going to the new mills, where larger wages are
offered to them, and wi hear there is likely to be a
scarcity of millworkers. Several families have
goi.c to Manchester and Leeds at a considerable
advance of wages, and a few are still leaving for
England. ? Banner of Uhtrr , March 12.
