We learn from Silistria, that the Russians wore ex pected to attack that place on the 1st inst., with 30,000 men, who were to cross the river under cover of seven teen heavy batteries. The Chancellor of the Exchequer has agreed to accept ?inety-eiglit and three quarters for the first series of ex chequer bonds. Ten days for tender. A dreadful catastrophe had occurred in the English Channel. At two o'clock on the morning of April 28, .he American bnrk Hesper, Captain Jones, from Charleston, S. C., for Antwerp, came in collision with the Bremen bark Favorite, Captain Koegemann, from Bremen for Bal timore, with one hundred and eighty passengers. The Favorite was struck on the starboard bow, cut down to the water's edge, and foremast carried away. The cap tain, mate, aud four seamen, of the Favorite got on board of the Hesper during the collision, and the remainder of the crew aro thought to have taken to the boat, but have not since been hoard of. At daybreak nothing was seen of the bark, which, no doubt, sunk immediately, with all on board. The Hos'per also sustained damage, but proceeded on her voyage, having sent the survivors of the Favorite to Portsmouth by a pilot boat. The collision occurred off the Start. The Cunnrd mail steamer Etiropa arrived at Liverpool at midnight on Sunday, April 30. Tlie screw steamer Great Britain, from Liverpool April 29, for Australia, had returned to Liverpool, having burst a flue off Holyhead. She has gone into dock; will partly unload, and may be detained two or three weeks. The clipper ship Red Jacket will probably take the G. B. 'a mails. The Vienna Prate confirms the withdrawal of the Russian forces, bag and baggage, from Lesser Wala chia? hospitals, magazines, and all. It adds, that it may be explained in connection with the formation of the two Austrian corpt d'armee in Gallicia, the Russian prince not wishing to have his retreat cut off by the armies of Austria, or it may be that Prince Paskiewitsch is only anxious to concentrate the Russian forces against Silis tria, and so force it to surrender, as being the outwork of the Balkan, ere the English and French army can come up to its relief. Tlie coasts of the Black Sea are strictly observed by the combined fleets. The Russian communications by sea ore completely cut off as far as Odessa. Great preparations are being made at St. Petersburg for the defence of the capital in case of an attack, which, it is said, appear! to be much dreaded. At Warsaw one million roubles in paper had been issued. Prussia has forbidden privateers to enter her harbors. To April 16 the number of Russian merchant ships captured in the Black Sea was fifteen. Onr London Correspondence. London'. Tuesday. May 2,1854. The Bombardment of Odetsa?I he War on the Danube? Retreat of the Km riant from Little Walachia?Austria and the Western Powers?Wit United States and England ?Greece, <fe. Official news of the bombardment of Odessa by the combined fleets has at length been received, and great enriosity, unmixed with anxiety, exists to ascertain the particulars. The^inexcusable firing into the boat ot the Furious with a flag of truce, led to the bombardment of this great Russian commercial emporium. The insult was too flagrant to admit of being passed over; and. al though it would have been more satisfactory if a naval instead of a commercial port had been bombarded, still Odessa, having committed the outrage, has hail to suffer the penalty. Moreover, Odessa, though strictly speak ing not a port of war. is nevertheless strongly fortiflel. All the particulars that have as yet transpired are that on tne 17th April, twenty-six sail of the combined fleets arrived before Odessa. On the 18th they bombarded it forme hour. On the 22d the bombardment was conti nued during the whole of the day. and a number o . buildings of the outer town were on fire. Four of the batteries were dismantled, and eight Russian and one Austrian ship within the harbor destroyed by the shells and congreve rockets. The town, refusing to surrender and give up the Rus sian ahlps inside, the bombardment was renewed on the 24th. An attempt at landing 1,800 troops was prevented, and the last telegraphic despatch states that four fri gates were considerably damaged. Some of the palaces, Including the Worenzoff palace, were in flames. The bombardment was still going on at the latest advices J (24th April.) There is a report that the Russian fleet issued forth from Sebastopol. but that when it found that the divi sion of the combined fleets was ready to accept battle, it withdrew again within the Russian stronghold. This would explain why nothing was done between the 18th and 22d. I believe that orders have been sent out from London to attack Sebastopol, Our latest advices from Constantinople are to the 20th, by letter. There are nearly 40,000 Anglo-French troops atOallipoli, Scutari and in the vicinity of the Turkish capital. The Himalaya landed the Forty-first and Thirty third F.ngllsh regiments at Scutari. These are the first European warriors that have landed there since the dnys of Richard C?ur de Lion. Some of the accounts of the landing of the troops, the astonishment of the Tnrks, Ac , are very amusing. The London journals are amply supplied. We have now something like authentic intelligence from Shumla. Omer Pacha has concentrated his forces there, end will make a stand. He has now the assistance of many experienced European officers, and the Russians will not he allowed to advance further. The Governor of Matachin !? to be tried by court martial for having surrendered that fortress, ne is accused of having been bribed by the Russians. We also know now, beyond a doubt, that the Russian troops have retired from all their positions opposite Kalefat, and have fallen back on Bucharest. The Turks already occupy Malglavit, Gunia, Pojana and Palechetl, and are expected to enter Crajnva on the 25th of April. This retreat of the Russians haa puzzled manv. The general opinion is that Prince ra<kiewitch, who is now in the chief command, gave up the siege of Kalefat anil Widdln as hopeless, and will concentrate the whole of his forces In or nearer the Dabrntacha. eo as to be able to make a bold attempt onwards. The fighting now will be severe when it does take piece. As yet no operations have taken place In the Raltlc except the capture of Russian merchant vessels. The English fleet was at anchor at Elfsnabber. near Stock holm, and Sir Charles Kapler had an audience of King Oscar, of Sweden, on the 28th April. He waa graciously received. The ice la gradually breaking up in tha Oulf of Finland, and by the time tha navigation is quite free the French squadron will have arrived to take part in the operations. The garrison of Cronatadt is said to be 20,000 strong, that of at. Petersburg 100,000. It ap. pears that the Islaud of Aland ban not been evacuated by tho Russians. The islaud evacuated U that of Oesel. The moat important political newH of the day ia the more decided manifestation ot Austria to a Ihero to the Western Towers. The 1 Hike of Cambridge had been the object of marked attention during bis visit to Vienna. He had the honorof first dancing with the young Km presa, and in Lis interview with the Kuiperur when he presented an autograph letter from Queen Victoria, he received tho most positive assurances that Austria would adhere to the Vienna protocols, and had no in tention of joining Russia. Considering the rec-nt treaty between Austria and Prussia this would imply that Ger many will ultimately declare against the Autocrat of all the Kuaaiaa. The official Austrian journals speak of the happy understanding between the Courts of Vienna and St. James. The Duke has left Vienna for Trieate, where he embarks for Corfu, where a British steamer awaits him to tsko him on to the East. Lord Itaglan has ar rived there now; he arrived at Malta on the 25th of April, and started en the following day. Respecting the convention on "the rightof search," between the British government and the American Am bassador, Mr. Buchanan, the Globe of last night has a semi official article. It says r? " A discussion is going on among the American jour nals respecting a convention which Homo impatient cor respondent of u New York paper had announce I as being concluded between the British government snd the American embassy in London, on the subject of "the right of search." But we believe we are correct in affirming the conclusion on one side?that there has been no such convention. As soon as the arrangements for prosecuting the war r.ime under the consideration of the govern mert and the public in this country, the American Minister In London, we believe, acting under the authority of his own great experience iu official busi ness, and with his usual seal for the interests of his country. Laid la-fore our government the view which has already been entertained by the government of the Uni ted States on the subject of the right of search. Of course it was quite impossible that any direct reply could be made to his representations; nor is it at all probable that, with regard to American interests, Mr. Buchanan ould be anxious to effect a formal convention on fhe subject of a right of which his country actually deny the existence. On tho other hand, although our minis ters have shown every disposition to meet the wishes of foreign countries in amity with ourselves, they have carefully reserved any rights which have been claimed as existing in the British Crown. A practical example Is the mode in which the subject of letters of marque has been treated. When the decla ration appeared from her Majesty in Council, that licenses for privateering would be discontinued " at pre sent," much attention was drawn to the expression, as indicating a mental reservation, and leading to tlw> belief that government would resort to privateering at some future day. But a more just interpretation of the phrase lins construed it to mean, that her Majesty's present ad visers disclaim the right, of fettering tho British govern ment hen-after, without, however, retaining any inten tion of using themselves a species of warfare condemned as much by the put-lie opinion of this country as it is by that of America. It is our own belief that privateering is rendered henceforward impossible, by tho concurrence of the three leading nations of the world, in discarding it as barbarism. But the respect which ministers enter tain for the rights of their successors, and for the future occupant of the British throne, restrained them from placing a negative restriction upon the judgment at a future day. It is perhaps sufficient that the subject of the righ' of search has been thus early brought under consideration; nnd that it has no doubt received that attention which its importance, and the importance of an ally like the United States, were sure to obtain for It. Another prin- I ciple maintained by the American government, the free dom of goods in fm ships, has been spontaneously re cognized in the declared policy of our present govern ment; and there is every reason to suppose that should any further question arise in the prosecution of tho war. that same government would take care so to in struct its officers as to preclude any just complaint, that we had infringed the independence of a friendly flag, or unnecessarily violated that accord which is so important to the interests of both countries, and to the welfare of the world. I think it very probablo that tho kingdom of Greeco will shortly he occupied by an Anglo-Kreuch army. On the 12th April, an ultimatum was sent in to the govern ment of King Otho by the representatives of France and England. Five -lays were allowed to the king to pro nounce himself distinctly and categorically against the pre.-ent Insurrection, and to declare hts intention of taking active measures to suppress it. Should the reply not be satisfactory-all amicable relations between the Western Towers and Greece will immediately cease. The Greeks of Constantinople have been allowed flf tcen additional days to complete their departure. THE EUROPEAN WAR. THE BOMBARDMENT OF ODESSA. It was prematurely announced in most of the English and French papers, a week before the event took place, that the allied ileeta had bombarded the city of Odessa. Without stopping to comment on the remarkable circum stance that the intention of the English admiral evi dently leaked out in advance of his acting upoa it, we have now to announce that a portion of the allied fleet has actually bombarded Odessa. An account of the bombardment is officially promulgated at Vienna, whence it has been telegraphed to the French and British press. It seems but a half measure, after all; hut perhaps the accounts yet to arrive by mail may show it in a more satisfactory light. It may be remembered that on the 6th ult. the British steamer Furious was sent with a flag of truce to Odessa.to bring off the British ex-Consul and some seventy British subjects. The Russians refused to permit the steamer to enter the harbor, and. on her persistiug, flred six or seven shots from the walls, and sent out some ships to chase her. The Furious escapnd. and brought back to the fleet the report of the treatment she had met with. This was on the flth of April, and the next we hear of was the arrival oil Odessa, on the 14th or 17th?for the accounts differ? of several ships of the allied fleets. The last advices from Odessa, received here per steamer Canada, were to April 2uth, at which date, although some English steam ers were in sight, all was quiet; consequently the ac count in the papers, that the city was bombarded for one hour, on the 18th, is manifestly incorrect. The following report addressed to the Minister of Ma rine and the Colonies, by Vice Admiral Hamelin. Cim mander-in-Chief of the French squadron in the Black Sea. .sectns to explain the attack described in our de spatches ;? Os snAnoTiii Vn.i.r or Pjihis. ) In the Roads of Bstaehi. April 10, KM. j The English steam 'riglte Furious went on the 6th of t his month to Odessa, to take on hoard the Consuls and such of onr conotrymeu as might desire to leave 'hat-wn at the apprnsch of hostilities with Rnssia. Th? Furions arrived yesterday, and on looking over tho report of the commander of that vessel yoor Excellency will seo, that in spite of the Bsc oftrnoc which aha hoisted, and which her hoat also ex hibited, ths batteries of Odessa, the nnml.cr of which has haes mnch augmented since late ieventi. traitorously Bred seven cannon halls at the hoat a few moments after it left the quay ar.d the maritime authorities. This is a proceed ing without oxample in the history sf the wars of civll ized nations. It Is necessary to revert to K2*i the pe riod when the Dey of Aiders "did the same thine to the ves sel I.a Provence, (and besides, this wse a ship ) to hnd a similar instanoe?tnnt is to say the example must be hor roweii fn m a sir with barbarians. Admiral Domini and my.-e.f are about to consider'he severe measures which such a proceeding may reader ne cessary On the morning of the 23d. nine steamers of the allied flee took up s (oeition before the forts that command the entrance to the harbor, an l immediately commenced to throw bombs mad rockets upon the fitrts and the city. We have as vet to glean our information from telegraphic scraps and flying rumors; consequently we do not know wliat steps preceded the bombardment? whether the British Admiral made any formal demand upon the city, which was refnse I, or whether the Russians at once acted upon the aggressive. Not unlikely both these circumstances occurred. One etatement says that the bombardment was over In two hours ; another that it continued Incessantly for ten hours, an l only closed with the night. The Austrian official account, published at Vienna 30th. states as the result of the action that "a battery of four guns was destroyed, and one Austrian ship, (the Sta. Catherine.) and eight Russian merchant ships, in hsrbor. were burned." The Russian telegraphic account is significant. It is in these terms:?"The English and French admirals de manded the surrender of the Russian ships in the port of Odessa. This being refused, bombardment began from eighteen ships. A small part of the city Is destroyed An attempt to land 1.800 men /ailed. The bombardment has produced no effect." Three of the English steamers were badly damaged. A despatch to the London Daily A'chu states that on the22d a partial bombardment took place, but not much damage was done except setting some buildings on fire. On the 23d hostilities were suspended, and a summons was sent to the place to surrender In the event of s re fusal. the Admirals?French and British?threatened to destroy the city on the succeeding day On the 24th was the attack. It was further stated that the Russian fleet sailed out of Bepastopol and advanced against the allied fleet, either with the hope of drawing the latter away from Odessa or of getting it between two tires but, on a portion of the British ships offering battle, the Russians withdrew to their stronghold. A private telegraphic despatch received from O lessa by an eminent Oreek firm, and dated the 2t)th alt., states that the whole combined fleet took its departure on the morning of that day. The Austrian Corretjuma^n has another account un der date of Ruchsrest April 2Ty ? The English and French admirals demanded the delive ry of the Russian vessels at Odessa. <m refusal, seven three deckers and eleven frigates bombarded the town on the 24th. The Woronroff palace Is totally destroyed. Four frigates are severely lamsged. The bombardment continues. LATK8T ACCOWT. Prince Woroiuoff's palace at Odessa, was entirely do stroyed by the bombardment A private dispatch state* that the whole of the allied fleet left Odessa on the2bth, and was to cruise oil Sebastopol to prevent tko egress of tbc Russians. Prussia has forbidden privateers to enter her harlrors. Small pox had broken out on board the British shi)> Jas. Watt, and Sir Charles Napier has caused a number of the sailors to be vaccinated. MOVBMENTH OP THE ENGLISH BALTIC FLEET. The British fleet hail been further reinforced, and was awaiting the arrival of the French squadron. Until the latter arrives, a British force will cruise olT the golfs of Finland and Bothnia. On the 21st ult., nineteen British strips anehered be fore Stockholm. Admiral Napier arrived on the 24th, and on the 25th had an audience with King Oscar. lie returned to the fleet the same day. A depot of coal for the fleet is being formed at Kalrroc aund, on the island of Gothland. A Russian powder factory on the island of Oronitailt, and containing 00,000 pounds of powder, blew up and killed sixty o|>eratives. No damage was done to the fortress. lire Russian schooner Libertas, Captain Haas, was taken by the British, and a prize crew was put on board to navigate the vessel to Kugland. Captain Raas, being acquainted with British tastes, supplied his captors with an unlimited allowance of brandy. Thev got drunk; the Russians nailed them below hatches, and carried theui as prisoners into Carl.-crona. A strong note has b?nn sent by France and Rritain to the Senate of Lubec. calling the government of that city to account for having permitted the clearance of a cargo of sulphur to Russia, after the declaration of neutrality was issued. A letter from an officer of the fleet, dated 18tU of April, tells the following rather good story:? One morning. & few days since, we saw a large vessel eight or ten miles ahead, which we fully believed to he a Russian man-of war, or she made all sail to get away, and showed no colors. As we rapidly came up with her, she took In anil until she was under reefed topsails, (lighting trim,) so we beat to quarters, nud the pi|>e sounded loudly, "hands, bring the ship into action!" l or some three minutes everythiug was bustle, castin r the guns loose, clearing the decks, Ac. F'ive minutes more, and every gun was shotted and primed, and the meu standing with the match linos in their hands, wait ing for the word to Are. Just as we get within good dis tance, the blackguard ran up American colors, and cool ly told us he would have hoisted them sooner, but he wanted to see how smart we would clear for action. If our tars did not bless him to the wrong side of heaven, never believe me. Several Kuglisli war ships have had their crews vacci nated at Elsinore. Ihe Admiral is off Cronstadt and Holsingfors, ami is much undermanned, the capture of merchantmen hav ing still further weakened him. The weather was mild and fuvorablo. OPERATIONS ON TIFE DANUBE. It wns fully expected that the Russians would under , tal e important operations against Rustchuck, Nloo polls, ami Rnssova. No fear* were entertained of the ability of Onier l'achu to maintain himself until the allies arrive. The Turks from Kalefat have already occupied Mugla vit, Gunia, Pejana, ami I'alcchti, liud were expected to reacl. Krajova on April 28 or 29. The Russians on the 24th of April evacuated their hos pitals and magazines at Krajovu; Gen. Liprnmli, with the ' division under hia command, was expected there on the 26th ultimo, and would leavoon the 2"tli. The evacuation of I.ittle Walachia by the Russians is complete, aDd was skilfully performed, the retreat being covered by a succession of unimportant yet harassing attacks upon the Turkish positions. The retreat of the Russians of course rendered necessary a change in the Turkish front, and mnkes it no longer requisite to main tain at Kalefat the 60,000 men and immense force of artil lery hitherto mounted tlivre. l'art of the Turkish torce from Kalefat has therefore occupied Muglavit, 4tc., ss above slated, and another portion is moving on more menaced points of the Ifonube and in particular on I/om, Rahova. and Rustchuk. By this change the army will he under the band of Omer Pasha, who will be able to concentrate his whole strength, in case of necessity, to meet the new operations of the enemv. The right wing of the Russians will now probably rest on the river Aluta, with its headquarter* at Bucharest, and the main interest of the campaign is once more con centrated on the operations below Nicopolls. and es pecially between Rustchuck and Silistria. Notwithstand ing the accounts of the siege of this litter fortress?see next paragraph?there is still some reason to believe that the reported bombardment was confined ,to the fire of some heavy guns frum the opposite bank of the Danube. SILISTRIA IN A STATE OF SIEGE. The important position of Silistria is closely invested, hut a telegraphic despatch of date 2flth says that, to that date, the fortrea* had suffered no damage. Accounts from Bucharest, April 19th. mention that Silistria had been bard pressed since the 14th ultimo, and wonid ere then have fallen but for tb" determined valor of its defenders, who express themselves able to held out uutfkaid shall arrive. The l'.uasiane. on the contrary, expect to reduce the place in n few days. Mustapha Pacha has a strong garrison, but is said to be neither well victualled nor properly supplied with ammu nition. The ford is in the possession of the Russians, as are also the entrenchments at the junction of the Dris tra, the Turks having retired within the defences. The Russians were expected to assault it on the first of May, with thiny thousand men. They have erected seventeen heavy batteries, under cover of which they will cross the river. The passage at Ollenitza is expected at the same time. Notwithstanding all these formidable statements, we must not forget that Silistria is too strong a position to lie carried without a severe and perhaps a prolonged struggle. MANIFESTO OF THE CZAR.

[Correspondence of tha London Chronicle ] Ma?KII>, Apr:! |Hi The Madrid proaa has hitherto abstained from treating of tne affair of the Black Warrior; but the fleraldn to day goes into the whole history of the case, and puts forth what, considering Its connections, is no doubt the version of the Spanish government respecting It, and which has probably been set forth in an official note. It says that the Black Warrior steamer arrived at Havana on the 28th February, and Ha consignee applied at the Custom House for entry as in ballast, and presented A manifest in harmony with that declaration, and subsequently applied for a permit to leave, repeat ing the same declaration, that the vessel was navi gating in ballast; that on the steamer first enter ing, and being visiled on casting anchor, an officer ol the preventive service delivered to the captain, and took a receipt for the same, the legulations of' the pert, in Spanish, Knglish, aud French, and that, not with standing this, neither the captain nor the cousignee at tempted, within the legal term, to correct the fraudulent manifest which they bad presented at first, although it bus Binco been falsely said that tliev did so, but we ?? not allowed to alter it; that the hen 1 of the customs, before granting the permit to lsnve, ordered the vessel to be visited by the commander or carabineer*, unl that be should assure himself that there was no cargo on hoard, but that there were found on board n great number of bales of cotton, which were being taken, as was said, from Mobile to New York; and that Ihe ve.sel was detain ed, and a judicial process commenced against it, because. In accord with the 19<Ub article of the regulations, the captain had incurred the penalties laid down in the 16!2d article. It then goes on to relate how the captain, opposing himself to the discharge of the cotton, ultimntelv aban doned the vessel, and left, with all the crew; that the administrator of the Customs invited the consignee to appoint an agent to intervene in the discharge an 1 do jxisit, Ac., of the cotton, and to fulfil the other indispen sable formalities, but that this concession, which was a matter of pure grace, was not accepted, that tiie con signee addressed the Captain-General, confessing the fault committed, and attributing it to his ignorance of the usages and laws of the country, and asking nsa lavnr that no higher duties might be demanded from him than what would be due from any vessel with a cargo mani fested as in traasit; that the Captain-General could not comply with this request, from rospect to the law and the national dignity?the process, moreover, having com menced, and it being besides impossible that the parties could be ignorant of the rules after the papers given to and acknowledged by the captain. The Consul of the United States being respectfully requested to ho present at the discharge of the cargo, refused, stating that It was no part of his business to do no. The steamer, being thus abandoned, was placed undor the enre of the commander of carbineers, aud the cargo was discharged and placed in deposit in wsrohouses ceded for that purpose by the authorities. 957 bales of cotton were found on board?some without any mark; also lug gage, and some other articles of traffic, embarked a! Mo bile and at Havana (the latter of which could only hare been done fraudulently) for New York. All the phases through which the process against the vessel proceeded are next recounted. The tribunal of tho intendency was authorized by the regulations in vigor to fix the lines ; but, at the proposal of the fiscal, the rrpf dirntr was referred to the authorities, and ultimately submitted to a superior jun'a, of which the adininis trater and general visiter of Cu-toms formed part, and which confirmed the declaration of forfeiture and fines, but left to the discretion of the Captain General to mitigate the penalties, if he thought proper to do so. 'Ihe latter called on the fiscal to say what fine he thought equitable to impose, and the fiscal stated it at ten thousand dollars, together with the exjenses ami costs of discharging. The Captain-General, however, reduced the fine to "$6,000, free of any other expense for discharging, Ac.; and on the 20th of March the consignee took charge of the vessel, having given security to be responsible for the fine. He subao. quentlv presented a petition, praying that the fine might be further reduced, which being beyond the power of the Captain-General, the latter authorised him toaddresa the Spanish government through himself, which has bee done in moderuteand grateful terms,thut contrast strong ly with the noise made about the matter in tho United Stttcs, by 1h" ene nies of Cuba the authorities of which have known how to combine mil1 ness and clemency with the tnrtltude end energy lamenting tho national (tignitv.

At the same time they hardly take sufflciently into consideration the tenacious valor of the Anglo-Saxon race, the expert rifle practice of the Americans, and their abundance of wealth, that great element of success in war.

The proceedings in Parliament are totally without in ten-st, except in so far as thay give explanations of the progress of the war In answer to I/ird Dudley Stuart, Lord John Russell rephed that Servia had no I been occu pied by Austrian troops, nor had any arrangement been made for its occupation by Austria, which power had stipulated to abstain from such a measure, except in the event of the entrance of Russian troops into the territo ry. or of a general insurrection of Servia. Mr. Cobden prefaced an inquiry, whether the government contem plated laying before Parliament any papers relat ing to the insurrection ef the (Ireek Christians in Turkey, bv some severe comments upon tho views and policy of both the British ami Turkish governments in relation to the insurrection, l/ir I John Russell said that the British govemmant hoped shortly to lay tefore Parliament papers relating to this subject, ami explanatory of the present relations of Rritain with the Court of Athens, anil he reiterated the statement he ha?l made up n a former occasion?which later informa tion, he said, confirmed?that the Creek government had lieen most active In fomenting the Insurrection.
