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 Vienna Prate confirms the withdrawal of the

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

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 ;?

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.

an unlimited allowance of brandy. Thev got drunk; the
Russians nailed them below hatches, and carried theui as

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

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.

INTERESTING FROM SPAIN.
The Black Warrior Affair?The (Aueatlon In
Madrid.
[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.

Mai-kid. April 21. 18.14.
Mr. Fruit- is reported to have said that the settlement
of the dispute with the United States would be greatly
facilitated by the dismissal of the present Ministry; and,
although I by no means vouch for the truth of this re
port, and although such a suggestion from a foreign en
voy would be pretty sure, with so haughty and jealous a
people as the tspaniards, to defcut Its own obiect, yet,

troops there are now armed with Minie rifles, instead of

no reason to doubt that a stout defence would he

although they may possibly not overrate thair own
military value and means of defence, underrate the
prowess of their anticipated enemies They justly
enough observe that the successes of the Americans in
their war* with tho degenerate and undisciplined Mexi
cans are not to lie taken as an argument that thay would
be equally successful in sn attack on Cuba. 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. To

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. The
expulsion of subjects of fireece from Turkey was a step
whlcli the Sultan was perfectly competent to take. The
creation of this civil war was, ho observed, one of the
consequences of the unjustifiable aggression on the part
of Russia .which found scarcely an apologist anywhere,
except, perhaps, with the honorable member, Mr. Cobden.
