Alkandbia, (Eypt,) J one 1, 1654.
Vkt Grttk Petition to tht]Ameriean Coiuul-Gtneral,
and His Action Upon ft.
1 wrote you a letter on the 7th of tot month con
versing the Greek trouble# here, and the noble
conduct of our Con?ul -General, Mr. De Leon. Sinoe
tint time nothing important has happened, except
an attempt of the government to deny to any of the
Consular authorities the right of protecting any of
the Greeks, and demanding to know how any one
conld claim it. But the only answer it got was
that it must respect, those protections or take the
consequences, so the government dropped the mat
tot, and onr Consul came off with flying colors
The star-spangled banner is now looked up to as a
oefoge against all oppression, and even the Ar?b
?outers here now respect any man that uses the
word "Americana*1 In fact, some curions cases have
happened where Greeks have got out of prison
here by pretending they had the promise of it,
oohen, in fact, they had not. I feel a great interest
m this whole matter, because I am a Greek by birth,
though American by adoption, having left the
Island of Scio when a child, and lived all my life
time in the United States. I have a doable reason
to call the attention of all my conntrymen to these
aflturs, because the letters written for the English
and French papers have tried to smother proceed
ings of which their na'ions have good reason to be
aebamed. A friend of mine sent a notice of thin
affair to a London paper, and it refused to publish
i; and the regular correspondent of the Times
won't sh y a word about it, though the affair has
t kneed great excitement here for weeks patt. There
ore 1 want the fac ts to be known in America
through your world-known paper, uud the Greeks
themselves have taken care that justice shall be j
done to them in Greece and other places.
I wrote jou befoie that Mr. He Leon had sent.
copies of all the papers to the Coueuls General of
England, Prance, Austria and Prussia, and I now
?end you a copy of two that I have managed t > get
hold of, together with the original petition of the
Creeks of Alexandria, which 1 hope you will pub
lish for general information. The letter to Abbas
Pacha has been much admired here; but you can
jadge of its merits for yourself. I have tried to get
a copy of his answer, but could not succeed, as the
Consul General will not gwe any of those papers,
Ihocgh much solicited for them. Some of my friends,
whom he has allowed to read it. say it is a long ex
cuse, throwing all the blame on the French, the
English, and the Sultan, and declaring he would
soften matters, if he dared to do bo. This battle has
been spiritedly fought, and the victory has beeu at
toot gained by our representative here, without any
aapport from anybody but his own Vice-Consul
? Mr. Wm. Moore? who stood to him like a
noon. Mr. Moore has an American wife, and his
heart is in the tight place, as well as his head. He
iaayoung man, as well aB the Consul General.
The papers I send you are the Greek petition, the
invitation to the Consuls General to assist oars, and
Am letter to the Pacha. I am sorry 1 can't get you
a copy of the letter to vonr Minister at Constanti
nople, which ia said to he a very strong one; but it
io not to be had at present, the Consul says, and
copies of it were not sent to the other consuls.

As will readily be imagined, the political interev.
of the day has been centred in the conference which
has iuat taken place between the Emperor of Aus
tria and the King of Prusain. Aa yet, nothing of a
positive character regarding it has been announced,
or has even oozed out, though the Moniteur does
not scruple to say, in broad terms, that the result is
favorable to the policy of th?s Western alliance; and
it takes the opportunity of repeating a declaration
made by the Austrian Emperor to the lluke of Saxe
Got ha, that unic.s Russia vacated the Danubian
provinces he would declare war against that power _
'? Have I " said the Duke, " yonr Majesty's permis.
sJon to make known this determination?" "Cer
tainly," was the imperial reply. ' to u.lwbow.li
listen to it." ?
The immediate object of the conference, however,
seems to have been the fol!owing:-In this German
question there is a wheel within a wheel. Bavaria,
Hanover, Saxony and WnrWnberg, the '-rand
Dtchita of Baden and Hease, the Electorate of Hesse
ftnd the Duchy of Hassan, consfitot* ? league,
wl.lch proposes to place at the disposal of
the "ftbinetfc of Vienna and Berlin a'J ttc military
forces at its command? with thia proviso, that it de
sires to reserve to itself the right of deciding, when
the question shall aris t for quitting the Germanic
territory, anl carrying the war into the provinces
of neighboring States; and it is understood that this
desire ha" been conceded on the part of two sove
reigns. Hence there ie a possibility of a kind of
tiers- rarti between the Imperial Conrt of Vienna
anl that of Berlin, which may one day thwart
the general policy of Germany, sn;h as it is
understood by Austria and Prussia. This coali
tion is not in itself a new one. It w<m formed sonfc
three years ago, and was only nominally broken up,
after the conclusion of a customs treaty between
Austria and Prussia. It was, however, secretly kept
up, and tne knowledge of this has been, for some
time, a complaint against Austria, on the part of
Prussia. I'ue Court of Berlin pointed out the hos
tile spirit which it evinced, and its opposition, on
every occasion. This opposition was increased with
the embroilment of the Eastern question, and at a
period when Prussia seemed less favorable to the
designs of Russia. It was then that the two Em
perors made, as will be remembered, frequent and
eordial visits to Olmutz and Warsaw, and that the
Czar, without precisely submitting himself to the
mediation of Austria, acceptedthe good offices of that
Sower, declaring that she alone remained really in*
ependent. It is precisely for that reason that Aus
tria supported this coalition of the States. She
even wished to extend and strengthen that ooali
lion, and for ?hat object instigated the Cabinet of
Dresden to propose to the coalition different means,
representing them as calculated to secure to it a
great influence in the conflict whi:h was in prepa
ration. In reality, the object was to obtain for Au?
tria the complete and unreserved adhesion of the
coalesced States against Prussia.
Those persons who have followed with some at
tention t?ie very varied phases which the Eastern
question has already gone Through, must have
remarked the multitude and diversity of interests
which it haWriready raised. 1 hese interests have
only manifested themselves successively, and, as
they have become revealed, the policy or the cabi
ncts lias been inoditied. The history of tbia coali
tion offers a remarkable example. I . was prepared
and organized by Austria against Prussia. Now
the coalition separates from Austria, and draws
nearer to Prussia. Why is this ? says the Jounul
</<?- Dcbats. Because Austrian interest manifests
itself in its turn, and dictates to her a more dim
and active policy.

Japan, Russia Mid the United States.
[From the Calcutta Englishman, April 24.]
By the Pekia we have received papers from
HongKongtothe 5th, and from Singapore to the
13th inst. The most important intelligence has
already appeared in oar Saturday evening paper,
namely, the conclusion of a treaty between the
Americans and the Japanese. Some particulars,
extracted from the Friend of China, will be found
below. Fhe Americans have obtained two ports for
trading, and a coal station. Japan yields plenty
of coal, and it will .be brought from the mines for
the use of steamers. The most important fact that
has transpired is that the Japanese have expressed
their willingness to make commercial treaties with
any other nation which may seek them, provided
it is done peaceably.
To what are we to attribute this entire change of
policy ? Why has this long sealed emp re opened at
the touch of Commodore Perry V We suspect that
the war in China with tho English ma le a profound
impression npon the Japanese. They saw the utter
inability of that vast Empire to contend against
Europeans, and dreaded involving their own country
in calamities like those which nad befillen their
neighbors. So long as the foreigners kept away
voluntarily, the restrictive system answered; but the
instant demands were made for admission, backed
by a ncva'. force which could not be oppose !, then
the necessity of conciliation became manifest. The
Japanese are well aware that the Americans and
English are not Jesuits in disguise, and do not fear
from them a renewal of the disorders which caused
the expulsion of the Portuguese. Whether they
will allow Protestant missionaries to teach there is
another question , and it would be imprudent to urge
this upon them at present; but that their hatred of
Christianity, which was entirely political, will be
ultimately overcome by free intercourse with Euro
peans, is no; to be doubted. It seems to ns evident
that had our government taken any steps to pro
cure admission to Japan immediately after the rati
fication of the recent China treaties, they would
have met with a reception similar to that of the
Americans, at least if backed by as strong A force.
It was long ago said that there is no ambassador
whose persuasive powere are e^ual to those of a
line of battle shij>, and of this the speedy settlement
with the Americans is a proof.
It is singular that the Japanese should deny
having made any treaty with the Russians. Can
the assertion have been a mere piece of Russian di
plomacy , intended to cover future aggression? Not
unlikely. The European nations would have no
means of ascertaining the falsehood of the asser
tion, and had the Russians, under tbe pretence of
a cession, invaded and taken possession of the Ja
panese portion of the Kurile Islands, the European
Powers would have had no right of interference.
Had Russia remained on good terms with her neigh
bors this would probably have been her next step
in advance in Asia, Persia being reserved for a
more convenient opportunity. This scheme, or any
other which may have been plotted for acquiring a
portion or the whole of the Japanese territories, is
now defeated. Diplomatic relations having been
opened with one maritime Power, which will no
doubt soon be extended to two or three more, accu
rate information will be obtained of the proceedings
of the Russians, and their aggressions instantly
?topped. The accumulation of Russian ships in the
CbineEe waters points to some such object, for
they never can have been sent out in contempla
tion of a war with France and England, in which
they could onlj hope to avoid capture by instant
flight to the desolate ports of Eastern Siberia. Bpt
jo cover a disembarkation on the southern Kurile
islands, or any other part o t the Japanese territory,
such a squadron would be necessary and sufficient.
The Rci&jwoftty Treaty In nn English Point
of \ lew.
[From the London Mores ntUe Ga/ntte, June 1?1
The subject of reciprocal trade between the Uni
ted Jtntes and the British North American provin
ces has been lonfe in agitation, bnt has only recent
ly arr ved at maturity. The treaty negotiated, how
ever, between Mr. Marcy and Mr. Crampton, tbe
British Minister, is Raid to have proceeded so far
satisfactorily that, if the consent of the colonial Le
gislatures be obtained, it will be put in force very
shortly. In the meanwhile, knowing what are the
general opinions entertained across ihe Atlantic, it
may not be out oi place to give r. rtsumt of tbe
principal points and facts under discussion.
In 1783. Mr. Pitt, the Chancellor of the Exche
quer introduced a bill for establishing reeiprooa.
trade intercourse between Great Britain and Ameri
ca, which would Lave gone into operation bnt for
his resignation.
In the close of i?.30 tbe United ciate% opened to
our colonial ships nil her ports of entry and den
very, and as a result of this policy the value of her
exports increased threefold m ten years. It 1813
we reciprocated tbe liberal policy of the A merioan
government. In 184C< a delegation sent to Canada
Arranged the teims ol reciprocity, but Congress
failed to legislate on the subject. The treaty re
cently negotiated provides, we believe, for the fr^e
interchange of the national products of the lespec
tive countries, and the tree ravigation. by the
Ameiicans, of the rivers St. Lawrence and ^t. John,
if, as we presume, Canada is to be allowed to carry
all her exports to foreign nations, in transitu,
through the American railroads, ri-.ers and canals,
to be shipped from United States por:<, during the
long period when the St. L ?wreuce is closed by ice,
it will greatly facilitate commerce. Snch a system
must also secure a valuable trade to the Americans,
greatly enlarge their business on their rivers, lakes,
railroads ana canals, and lead to extensive pur
chases by Canada of United States exports. * !
The shipping interests on each ^ide of the Ameri- |
can lakes should mutually enjoy the internal coas/.- |
ing trade. The free right to participation in the ]
fisheries in British waters, and permission to drew,
cure and dry the fish on our coasts and shores, are
to be conceded. The Americans are willing to give
i.p the doty on flub, if admitted to a participation in
the privileges enjoyed by British snbjects on the
fisbing grounds. Hitherto they have been debarred
from approaching the shores within three miles, ant.
the preservation of this right by armed \ esselfl Las
!e.d to much nnpleasani feeling, and *o confiscation
and fines.
The American f-heries have made but iittle
progress, in spite of bounties anG every spociee of
encouragement: they have labored under many
disadvantages in having to salt their fish hastily
oh board in bulk, and without any convenience
for drying and preparing them for market. With tbe
advantage of being able to pro??c U*" the fishery in
small boats from the shore, cur colonial fishermen,
owing to the superior quality of their c>.re. and the
large takes of tish in the bays and indents of the
coast,, have hitherto been able to oompete success
fully in the American markets, notwithstanding
th* iiea? y foreign duty levied, and they must cer
tainly stand in a l etter position by 'he abolition n.
this impost. Labrador. Prince Edward's Mind,
New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, the district of
Gasp*', and ?tlier parts of Lower Canada !n the
gulph, would all greatly benefit, i:' the produce of
their fisheries cor Id be taken to Boston and other
American ports, free of duty.
Noibing would tend more to the improvement of
the financial condition of NewfounJland than tlv
I opening of new markets for the produce of her
1 fisheries. The old and contracted system of tra 1o
heretofore pursued there is reported to be totally in
adequate to the independent maintenance of her
operative population, many of whom are conse
quently thrown upon the government for support
or driven to seek remunerative employment 111 the
United States. The adoption of seme weU-arran?<i
measure of reciprocal trade would induce capitalists
of enterprise to embark in the trade, infuse n?w life
and energy into the pursuit? of the people, and de
velope the vast dormant and neg'ected resource? ef
that extensive island. The import* and export* of
that colony have been almost stationary for the laat
ten years, and a debt of ?120,000 has accumulated.
The removal of the duty of 20 per cent now imposed
by ti c Americans on British caught flsh would open
a valuable market for its staple produce.
The United States trade witn Canada and the
lower provinces is increasing annually, and is be
coming quite an important item in their foreign
commerce. The total value of the trade, both ways,
two year* ago exceeded nineteen million dollars,
nearly four millions sterling. It has grown up,
within a few ye.irs, under a partial relaxation of
stringent commercial re trnlations, and certainly by
the complete removal of those restrictions a rapid
and important increase would necessarily follow.
Tbe imports into Canada from the United States
i have increased from ?l,242,85r> in lMft to ?2,9f>3,
t>0i) in 1853. The exports from Canada to the Uni
ted States from ?1,237,789 to ?2,22(5,090 in the
same period.
I The trade and population of ihe British North
1 American provinces have increased of late years
in a far greater ratio than the United States,
, and certainly cannot retrograde by any facili
ties afforded for commercial intercourse. The
population of Western Canada increased at
the rate of 103 ptr ccd4. Id tie ten

Bta of wheat from Canada have increased from
f a million bushels, eight years ago, to eight mil

exports of wheat from the United States nave been
almost stationary. The resources of oar various
American provinces are comparatively undeveloped,
and wait but the progress of settlement, the devel
opment of industry, capital, and enterprise. Large
portions of Upper and Lower Canada, New Bruns
wick, and Newfoundland are, in many respects,
wildernesses and wastes? yet offering numberless
advantages for agricultural improvement, manufac
turing operations, and the prosecution of the fishe
It is often affirmed that our North American Colo
nies would be better customers to us if they belonged
to the United States, or were independent. This is,
however, a very enoneous impression. For years
past Lower Canada ? aye, and Nova Scotia and New
Brunswick too? has progressed as fast as anv of
the North-Eastern States, and Upper Canada as
fiast as any ot those in the West. The value of
British goods consumed by the population of our
North American provinces last year was a little
over 23s. per head, while the United States only
oonsumed such goods to the amount of about 14s.
6d. per head. The balance of trade, in proportion
to population, as compared with the United fStatea,
is, therefore, decidedly in favor of the colonists.
Serious Charge Against American Seamen In
|Trom the Liverpool Times, June 16. l 1
Yesterday, at the police court, after the discharge
of the morning business before Mr. Anderson, a case j
of much importance came before that gentleman, i
the results of which, very likely, will prove of great
1 public interest. In the present state of the case the 1
following brief facts will suffice, until the entire can
have been investigated in detail.
i It appears that the American ship Washington
I arrived here on Wednesday evening from New York,
i and is at present in the Wellington dock; and yes
terday Henry Tilbee, the third mate, Chas. Henry
| McKenzie, the boatswain, and Andrew Adduls, the
I carpenter, were brought before Mr. Anderson, on a
charge of having robbed several passengers, who 1
came by the ship from New York, both of clothes
and money.
Mr. Wybergh addressed the magistrate, and said
the case was one of the utmost importance. The
prisoners were charged with having stolen a quanti
ty of clothes and money from several passengers
who came home by the ship, and also from some of
the sailors on board. The evil complained of had, ;
most unfortunately, grown to a great extent, parti- :
cularly in American vessels. It had attracted mnch
attention, and the time was come that such transac
tions must be put a atop to, and have poor emigrant
and other passengers protected. The robbery in the
present cat-e, it appeared, had taken place in an
American ship on the high seas, not exactly in the
jurisdiction of the court, but some of the property
was found with the prisoners in Liverpool, and that
would bring them within the jurisdiction.
Several witnesses, both sailors and passengers,
were then produced, and all swore, in the course of
the voyage home, that the prisoners, but particular
ly Tilbee, the third mate, robbed them of clothes
and money to a considerable extent. The witnesses
were afraid to say anything, as the parties used vio- j
lence, and they were afraid if they resisted that |
they would be thrown overboard into the sea. One !
man had his clothes and forty dollars, another fifty
eight dollars, and so on, stolen. The greater por
tion of the clothes was found in Tubee's chest,
tome on his person, and some stowed away in the
sail room. The other prisoners had clothes which
they stole, on them, and more in their chests. There
were several watches and a variety of other proper
ty stolen from the passengers and some of the crew,
and a portion of this was also found with the prison*
era. The whole of the property recovered (with the
ex ception of the money) was produced and identi
fied by the ownere. None of the money was founi. i
The only reply given to the charge was by Tilbee, <
who said the property was given to him by the peo- |
pie to keep fjr them. This was most positively de- ;
nied by all the witnesses, and two or three of them ;
swore that the money was taken under threat of
their lives.
One of the passengers had a written statement |
signed by all the passengers in that portion of the
ship where he was, in which lists of great hardship
and injustice (if true) were given, but as that por
tion of the case did not properly come before the ma
gistrates, we forbear to do more than allude to it, par
ticularly as the party said he would lay the whole
case before the American Consul, and have the
matter brought before the authorities; in whioh case
the details will transpire without exparte statements,
<ts all will lave an opportunity of being heard.
Mr. Anderson said the case was a most important
one, and therefore time should be taken to consider
it maturely. He was very sorry to see not only sailors
but officers, of the ship, in such a disgraceful posi
tion. bailors ar.d officers were bound to protect 1
passengers both in person and property, and not
take anything from them. It was quite impossible,
after what he had beard, to credit the story told by j
the prisoner Tilbee; he wonld therefore remand all j
the prisonrers for seven days, and in the meantime 1
the uecesgary bteps would be taken and inquiry made !
uto this important affair.
Immediately after the prisoners were removed a j
female of respectable appearance, who gave her
name as Ann Hodson, came forward and charged a !
yoong man named Hugh Barry, chief mate of the 1
American ship Henry Clay, just arrived from New j
York, with having stolen a diamond ring, which 1
cost ten dollars, from ber.
The complainant said tte prisoner took the ring
forcibly from ber on the voyage, and put it into his j
pocket. She complained to the captain about it, {
and he said he could do nothing for her, as the mate '
denied having taken the ring. i
Mr. Wybergh? Did you allow him to take the
No, sir. He took it lorcihly from my finger : he !
said that is a nice ring you have, an>i forced it off
my finger. I had no friends on board, as my hus
band died in New Orleans.
Constable 16tl said he went on board the ship and
asked the mate about the ring, when he said he
would go to the third mate and get it, which he did,
and gave it to witness.
Mr. Hluck. for the prisoner, cross-examined the
complainant at some length, but did not sh ike her
testimony ; but
Mr. Anderson said the case did not come within
his jurisdiction, but he heard it so far in consequence
of the important case whi :h had been just before him.
Such things, however, should be put a stop to, for
the benefit of the public, who should be protected.
The prisoner was discharged, and the ring given
up to the owner.
Female Postmasters.? The number of females
at present holding the office of postmaster (or
rather mistress) in the United States, is 129. They
are appointed, give bonds, are commissioned, and
receive the same compensation for their services as
other postmasters. Unmarried females only can
hold the office of postmaster.

The Alton Courier learns from Charles Floyd Jones,
Esq., civil engineer, having in charge one ot the grand
division? of the Illinois Central Railroad, that the work
ia progressing with all practicable despatch throughout
the entire line. The Chicago branch is complete as far
aa TJrbana, Champaign county. On the main trunk the
track is now laid from Dixon, I.ee county, southwardly
aa far as Mowerqut, Shelby county, fifteen miles below
Decatur, with the exception of a short distance on either
side of Salt Creek, which Btream yet remains to be
bridged. This leaves a gap of forty-five miles north of
VandalU to be closed up. From Cairo northward, the
track is laid to a point within about twenty -five miles
of the junction of the Chicago branch, or fifty-five miles
south from Vandalia, making one hundred miles yet to
be laid to form a connection the entire distance from
Dixon to CaiTO. At the rate of ten miles per month on
each end, this will require five months for completion,
and it is believed that this portion of the road will cer
tainly be in running order by the first of January next,
at farthest.

Suras? From Mr. Brown's circular, we take the follow
ing summary of June's business : ? Of goat skins the im
ports this month have been very light, amounting in all
to only 162 bales, 150 of which were received via New
Orleans from Tampico, and were sold at 38c. per lb., six
months, and 25,000 Ruenos Ayres on private terms. In
Curaooa and other skins we bare but little or nothing
doing? the sales in all the month are not over 100 bales,
at 50c. a 52c. each? the month closing with lit'leor no en
quiry from tbe trade. The receipts of deer skins amount
to 820 packages American, 60 bales Bolivia, 50 bales San
Jnan. Baler ? 26,000 lbs. Missouri at 26c. cash in thirty
days; 0,000 lbs. at 27c , four months; 0,000 lbe. Arkan
sas, 18c. cash; 7, COO lbs. Arkansas, 22c., four months;
18,000 lbs. Arkansas, 28c., four months; 1,400 lbs. Texas,
lfie cash ; 700 lbs. Texas, 18o cash- 1.200 lbs. Florida, 20c.
cash; 1,600 lbs. Sen Juan, 46c. casn; 8,000 lbs. Bolivia,
46c. cash. The demand this month has been exceedingly
limited. Manufacturers appear to be generally supplied
with stock for this rear's purposes, which circumstance,
in connection with the risk of holding skins during tbe
prevalence of hot weather, has Induced some parties to
close up their receipts at reduced figures. The quota
tions made in my last must, therefore, be reduced from
to 6 per cent, to conform to the present state of the
market, as is evidenced by tbe above report of sales for
the month.
Smaiw? The market was Inactive, while price* remain
ed steady, with sales of about 850 a 400 hhds. Cuba and
New Orleans, within the range ef 4>?c. a 6o. for the for
mer, and 4c. a 4&c. a 4%c. for the latter. The stock
