The luited States mail steamship A rag J, Captain
Linen, which left Havre on the 13th of February, arrivel
at this port eaily jei'ei Jay morning.
The Arago briogu 111 passengers, the usual otalU, a ad
640 ton* valuable merchandise; also, three despttohes
bom the British government to their Minister at Wash
imgiou, one from Mr. Buchanan aud one from Mr. Mania.
She experienced strong westerly gales on the passage,
and. was detained 64 hours ou the eastern edge of the
b auks by the ice.
February 2C. 6 A. M,, lat. 47, long. 46, passed three to?
bei gs. From that time until the 24th, at noon, lat. 41 24,
long. 40, were constantly picking our way amjug.it ice
bergs, large and small piece* and patches of el9*ely
packed brokta lce%Jh' a part of two nights stopped, and
?t otLer times we.e running slow, frequently stopping
and backing to avoid collision with dangerous pieoes.
At noon of the 22d found that we were in the bight of
a bay of closely packed broken ice and large and small
icebergs, extending bom southeast around to north, as
Jar as oould be seen, with no open water to weatward.
Stood to the North in hopes of finding an opening, but
after running about 'M nulee found the ice extended to
the northward and eaetwaid as iar as eoultl be seen.
About ehip and stood bach again to the douth, exploring
whatever had the appearance of a passage; at one tiae
running into a Ceep bay for SO mile*, whioh we lound
eiosely blocked up, and had to stand out again. In this
way we made 200 miles southing, without seeing any
tpen water te westward betore we found a passage.
The quantity of ice seen, from the largest sized icebergs
grudualy down to the smallest pieces and packed ice, ex
cel del anything of the kind thstCapt. Lines has ever seen
or heaid ot about the Banks betore: and asitls now early
in the season, he is a raid that, in a few weeks, the
widest track tor European navigation will be impeded by
this dangerous foe. He would, therefore, most respest
t'ully recommend to *11 shipmas'ers to go south of the
Banks in going to Kurope this season, and in coming, to
westward; when approaching the iee track in thick wea
ther or in the night to use the utmost vigilauee, and
hare their ships under perfect command for any mi
nd'uvre at a moment's notice. m
The cews by the Arw has been anticipated by the ar
rival of the America at Halifax.
There is nothing in reference to the diplomatic dl Sic al
lies between the lnitc<t States and hagland. The mo
deration of tone adopted by 1'almernton tu hi*
apf eeh to the House of Commons on the 8tli ultimo, caus
ed a geoeral feeling of satisfaction, and the advises re
ceived from thin sfde are also favorably interpreted. Any
fear cf war between the two conntriei had evaporated.
A te.egraphie despatch from Alexandria states that an
insurrection had broken out at Damanpoor, near Cairo,
among the Bedouins, on the subject of the resent enrol
ments of tbe militia, and that troops had l>een despat sh
ed to put down the movement, which threatened to be
aertou*.
A teleqraph'c despatch from St. Petersburg anaonnoes
that 1'rince Gortschaknff is appointed Commander-in
Chief of the armies of the West and Centre, ana imperial
Meuten.int of the kingdom of Poland.
It was stated in a letter from the French camp tbat in
en affair with the Human outposts, the Sardinians suc
ceeded In making ?09 prisoners.
f In answer to a question iron Mr. I. inward, on tbe 12th
lilt., !/>rd Palmeraton explained that the reinon why the
Sardiiian Ambassador had been excluded from the con
ference! at Crnstaetinople was in con*tq?enc? of it.*
having no reference to tbe war, but merely to the inter
nal a' raogemeats of the Turks.

and Fng'inh direct' rs, of gr< at Influence and wealth, will
be speedily formed to conduct the affairs of the company.
It is also said that the company further intend to extend
the line to the Brazil*.
A larje meeting of the creditors of th? great ship

f.uH*ia lias gone down in the political market of I<on
don ainc* it ha* bee* positively known tbat tli? war is
over. The public miad in no longer occupied with the
Crimea or St. Petersburg, but in busily occupied with
rain endeavors to pierce iato the deep reoes*** or the
diplomatic garee shortly to begin in Paris, where the
Plenipotentiaries of the late belligerent* are to assem
ble a few days hence. 1 hare already told you that the
people of thin country were disconcerted by the unex
pected rujaois of peace, aad are deeply disappointed by
the abrupt termination of the war. The universal de
tnand throughout the land is, "What hare we
gained for all our expenditure In blood and
treasure?" The answer to this preguaot qu<*
lion can on!y be given when the term* of peac* are
definitively settled at Paris. It Is beginning to be known
Jiere that the war stopped betause the French Emperor
liad no inclination to go on any longer, lor reasons he
considered sufficient. It is, further, beginning to be sus
pected here that there is some reeent understanding be
tween France and Russia, and that there is, |>erhaps,
Home chanoe of the scheme of the First Napolesn being
realised In a Ru*so French alliance. What m*v be
the private inclinations or public slews of the French
Km pet c.r it Is useless to discuss, since no man knows
better how to keep hi* own secrets. It is certaie that
Jtossl.i flnd> It ber Interest to make peace, or she would
not do It. She finds it a tongh job to contend, single
banded, with the alliance, and sue Is, no douht, per
fectly aware that if she withe* to renew her game of
conquest hereafter, she can do It under far more favor
able c rcunstances than at present.
As 'or Napoleon til. 1 have sufficiently discussed In a
former letter his motives for a pacific polley He is the
beat ju{ge of liis own interests. Kngiand, howevsr, I re
peat, both goverom?nt and people, is sorely disappoint
ed at the unlooked for turn that matters have taken. In
the military contest with Russia it is umrersally felt
hfre that f nglanfi has got the wont of it. and tlint
I ran:'1 has acquired all the credit. It Is now pretty
generally feared that unless Kngiish diplomatists are
greatly superior to I.ngllsh generals, John Bull will re
turn borne from the negotiations at Pari* wofully humiiia
ted in his own oy"- and a langhiag stock to other na
tions. It then lemainsto be seen whetimr .fohn Ball

like an old diplomatist, he 11 always ready tn io S:> up ho
rose, lat-A Friday night, in Parliament to leply to a speech
fnm Mr. Coboen and went briefly over the hiwlorv of the
dispute with ihe United States government. Notbicp'cruW
be more pacific than hi* tf<te, and nothing c >uld be far
ther from bin Intentions than a collision with the United
State*. The Central American treaty he had proposed
should be left to arbitiatirn; and m tor tlie small matter
of the " recruitment," why, he had apo'ogized for that;
and what could any gentleman do more- That remain*
for Mr. Mar cy to answer.
Meanwhile' the effect ot the Premier's *;>e*ch is quite
conical People are wondering at what the deuce they
were frightened about. When they came to see clearly
enough there vm no causa (jr it. There la no dau; ing
that Mr. Marcy had a tough job on hand to follow
tbe devious windings of such an incorrigible old
f< x as lord Palmerstou unquestionably is, but
it is suspected at home that our Albany Premier
is not many removes from being an old lox hlmstlf; and
in that cafe, on the strength of the adags of setting a
thief. &e., (begging par Jon for tbe simile) it aaay tdrn
out that the venerable Keyaard of Washington wtll finally
run his gray headed rival o! l?owaieg street into the
bush
There is one assertion in I.ird Poimerstnn's speech I
feel bourd to uotice, eud am aorry to state that it is en
tirely unfounced. It was no d >u'o' eatelessiioas, but a
Prime Minister ought to kcuw what he is talking about,
l ord Palmerstou t-aid that Mr. Buchanan, the American
kirlatei, had dedaied hia.se'.r satisfied'' with the ex
planation made by Lord Claiau lou cn the recruitiueut
question. Now, I feel n.v.-Mt uuthoriztd, af.er un in
vest igatir n, to state that "Mi. Buchanan never declared
anything ot tbe sort. Mr. B. merely wrote, as far back
as in July last, that it "would afford him satisfaction''
to ooamunica'e the explanation of l.oid Claieudon to hid
goveintnent at Washington. That was the usual diplo
matic phrase, 1 will uot say that lx>rd Paliuerston
made wanton use of Mr. Buchanan's name to get
himself out (4 a scrajte, lor tbat would be t >0
foxy, but the Americans neis ail tbink so, anu it really
dees look like it. The tact 1.1, neither Lord Palmeritin
ntr the limes like Mr. Buchaniui, and they pitch into him
every cbance they can get or can invent. Petlaps they
hope to make him loce his temper, and then outwit hiui
in negotiation. The experienced <>age cl Laccaster, how
ever, understands tbat trick, and, besides, i? blest with a
mild dlnpntion, as his enemies ought to know, since he
feiglVM them all, and has even lent them money, a Chris
tian virtue not Included in the decalogue.
Did you ?ee what the Times e<ud of Mr. Buchanan's
"black coat" at the opening of Parliament, and have you
read tke rejeinoer cf the facetious Punch, who seenii to
have a hearty affection for Brother Jonathan? Tbe Euro
pean journals are pointing at the " anarchy" of the
Bouce of RepTesentatives at Washington, and ridiculing
republican institutions. Monarchists don't know that
our representatives ate daily paid, vrlie .her they work or

1'aris It in a lively state of fermentation, because of
the grand Continue*, which, (t is presumed, will open its
deliberations on Monday next. The BritUh Ambassador,
Lord Cowley, started off to l.undon on Sunday last by a
special tiain and steamer. He was accaar|>anied by a
seeietary expreaaly selected tor the oceasion. His Excel
lency's Sojourn is to be till Friday, when, after confer
ring with the Cabinet on the necessary preliminaries, he
will retain to Paris. Lord Claieudon is to accompiny
him. The Engliih Minister tor Forsign Affairs will take
up his quarter! at the new Hotel du Louon, whose co
loesal proportion and discipline are borrowed from your
side the of Atlantic. Toe residence of such a Minister at
such an epoch In the world's history oannot fail to af
ford soma eclat and preetlge to this novel speculation.
If one may judge from the prevailing tene of society, '
Francs is inevitably drifting into a pacifi: state. The
advent of Russian nobles Is spoken of with the same con
fidence sx the rise of the sun to-morrow. Nay, the ar
rival C'f the Czar, to be a guest at the Tuiieriea, is looked
upon as a natural event, which will be sure to happen
about tlie time of the swallows' visit, 1'iean* are already
breaking forth In his honor. It is said his Majesty has
klresdy seen the impolicy ef o. niinuinga course obedient
to the will of 1'eter the Gieat; that he has resolved,
henceforth, to seek the grsatness of hit empire by de
veloping the resources offered to him by its iamsnse
nuinbers, its vari *d climate, its brosd lands, its keen
wilted traders and its maiitime outlets ? that his late
enemies mnst now therefore be bis most active al ies.
It is difficult not to suspect that sosaethlng lies hid
beneath the sudden conversion of these two great coun
tries, who but yesterday were cutting each other's throat
with such peculiar unetion. The time has not yet ar
rived for full revelations, but it is well known that an
incvvmvl correspondence for some months past has been
kept up with the Russian Court through tbe Piincass
Mathilda. This lady's marriage witn Prince DemldofT.
thr-ngh sot one of much ecclal teiioty to either party, has
been very uveful a? a political medium. Tnrough this
source the most strenuous exertions have been luaie to
casse Napoleon to break away from England That point
ha* not been ostensibly gained, but it cannot be said it has
altogether failed. The splendid t tiers of the Rhine, of
peculiar Mediterranean facilities, favorable to French
commerce at Algiers, and other advantages of a similar
character, though declined, ha* * let; a balm behind, the
effect of whlcn will, it is ?anl, be generally visible
next week on the opening of the Conferences. The Czar's
deprecation of any pecuniary exscti.m on the ground of
compensation for the war, though totally opposed to the
practice of Russia in similar cases, and in regard to
Francs in particular, is listened to with most Christian like
complacency; in fact, everything bedss- kindness and
gocd will. In the meantime, Tuikey seems in ? fair way
of discovering that her friends are about to treat her as
that acute lavyer c:'<1 his clients, who mads him the arbi
trator of their dispute for possesion of the oyster, to
esch of whom he gave a shell, gulping down tbe savory
bivalve himself, as indemnification for the judgment
he had Riven. Mussulman ars to he allowed to turn
Christians without Incurring civil disnjUity? a
consummation which, however desirable, strikes
as much at the root of the Ottoman bod' politic, as
if slaves In Virginia were to be permitted to ieclare
themselves rreenvn ths moment they were put to
wotk. Then again, the l/lcmas, a privileged body, in
whom is verso both judirial and religious lunations, as
wito the Catholic hierarchy in England before the Refor
mation, are to undergo a thorough reorganisation. At
present they are exempt from taxation, but. notwith
standing, exercise a mystic influence over tbe populace,
of tbe most powerful character. All thl' is te be ohauged,
and a new state of things ensue, moleHed after the
French revolution of 17W. Toe Sultan, teo, the grave
petticoated Sultan, whose crsed teaches ltim that a ball
ol European fashion Is an indiguity to linman nature, Is
obliged, lor the first time in his life, to go to one at Lord
Stratford de Hedcilffe's, the English Ambassador, and this
shocks bis subjects, though he imitates the condescension
of the Emperor of the French In his visit on a late ocsa
sion to th* hotel of tlie I nglish embassy. Where is all
this to end 4 Will the people submit iolt? Alas I they
cannot help themselves; France and Blngleud. their dear
friends, who rescued them from the devouring jaws of
Resale, each lend them a upporting arm, and embrace
them with sn energy and cordiality which feels very like
a gripe.
I do not find that auy real anxiety prevails respecting
the difference exisi iDg between America sad England.
Every day less and less iniportnnea la attached to.it, and
the whole exsltement is set down to a mere douje of tbe
Pierce government. Nobocy ia willing to beOfl've that
either nation would seriously quarrel with the other
about the tubjecta In dispute.

Ihe tec no r*?aon wan that all European To warn, even
Hella&J and Prussia, having taken the al&rm, Ruiaia
could not expect, within the oe.xt ten or twenty yea ra,
to make Europe the aim of her diplomatic or warlike am
bition. Pu'.'ia has been unscccesaful in iM European
dfron-untr alien, and she has been eucceAalul ia Atia, and
the peace which la about to be concluded will not pre
vent her fr m puriutrg her advantage in that quarter,
frlie nill gi>. e up har c Juqceit in Anatolia; but ahe will
ccnttiue her intiigues '.u Pereia, in Khiwa and in Aff
nh?ni?t?o: and it is doubt ie?s the knowledge or preaenti-_
n.eut ot that future policy of Russia wkica diminishes
the ardor of British state- men for a spe?iy terminatioa
of hoktilities.
But this n cot all. The third ted greatest re?3oa
which Russia hM in accepting teiin* of peace new, ooa
tlst* in the probability that th? peaee will l-*)*en the lu
t.iutcj aid weaken the friendship whiih has sa resens'iy
sprung up between Eiglaud and France; and iu this ex
pec ation ehe in certainly ju.i Ulied by the effect which the
auie saspec.iion of hostilities seems to have produced in
the entente cordial*, as iar aa official opinions are repre
heu'td'tU ruujh the public journals. WUen Russia shall
ejain bi-ve her diplomatic representatives iu Paris, the
momentary suocete now obtained will undoubtedly b?
pushed taithrr. It temains, however, to be seen whe
ther the iuipmor iNapolnon inteuds to pursue niaad
var tage fui ther than to make himself equally necessary
to hubtia and England, so as to be able to chooee be
tween thtm in tiie interest ef Frauce. What tne Euipe
lor oi 'he French now watt* is a general rec ignition of
his dynasty ai.d his right to the throne by a Eurojiean
Corgress, in which himself ib represented ani admitted
on equal terms with all the other legitimate sovereigns. I
He wanta tn gain a legal b*si?, as tar as the public law
ot Europe is concerned, for his pt act leal act of usurps- I
tion; and nothing csn in this rttpect be more striking
for all F.urope, and for France in particular, tban to have
the negotiations uansfoned to Paris. So far the E-npe
? or Kapclt.cn wants the Czar; now let ut see how far the
Czar wants tbe good will and, if pae*i?le, the fiieodship of
the Emperor of the French.
Iiusnt, from her geographical po*itio?, has aa here
ditaiy policy to pursue in regard to Eucepe and Asia.
Her sun is twoiold, because she it an European and an
Asiatic Power. As regards her European policy, it has
reeeived a most severe check by tne present war, aad by
the tieay between Sweden and ihe Western Powers of
the 21st November last. That cheek was adwinlitereo
by France, through tbe agency of the Empero* Napoleon.
But there remains still the Asiatic policy of Russia, which
is a* yet unchecked on a continent where she meets no
antagonist capable of resisting tier progress, except the
British power in India. Russia ha.s beaten the Turks in
Asia; she lias succeeded in detaching the hardy moua
tsititeTs of the Caucasus from the Turkish alliance; Bho
has ? permanent ally In the reek subjects of the Sultan,
and she has thus far oarrted all be.ore her in Persia.
Persia is the military ally of Russia against England, and
the power which she now use* as her pioneer on the road
to India. Lord Palmer.-iton, however his anti-American
idiesj ncracles may have led him into error as regards the
United States and Central America, it, nevertheless, the |
most const 'erabl? stater ansn. i t England, and' has never
undervalued the prcgrees Russian diplomacy hat male in
Persia ami Atlgbsnistsn. He knoe* that the Achilles
heel of British East India possessions is bordering on
Affgbsnistan, aad hat always exhibited great sensitive
ness in that direction. Now, the late of Kivrs and Herat
are complete triumphs for Russia in Asia, which, In
themselves, would be acoompamed by great conse
quences, were Russia not oblige 1 at thin moment
to make extraordinary efforts U defend her own Iron
tiers against the at mits and squadrons of the Western
Powers Rassia, then, want* to make peace with Frauce,
and, through her, with Europe; but the successes of her
arms in Asia have already produced their effect on the
people and governments of the Asiatic States which di
vide her from British India, and her diplomats will have
a rare to vaunt the generosity of the Czar, who, not
withstanding these successes, has restored so large a
portion of the Sultan's territory. To calm Kiiropf, the
Czar is willing to momenta! ilr abandon htft European
policy of aggression; and be will, bv that meant, be ena
bled to purine his Asiatic policy with greater V gor and
effect. He will there advanee under the banner of civili
zation, and Count Nesielrode will no doubt be very anx
ious to prove to France, if he hat not already succeeded
in proving to her, that she has no interest in arresting
the progress of Russia in Asia? on. the oontrary, that it
is the polley of France to laror the developement of Rus
sian power in that oheotioa; because, to tike extent that
Russia bsooroes an Asiatic power, she ceases to threaten
and endanger the ?afety of Europe.
So, then, France and Russia are in a condition mu
tually to serve each other, with. this difference only, that
the service which Russia is about to render to !? ranee
and her Imperil rimrn- is direct and imnediate,
while that whish France is expeoted to render
Russia is mere remote, and may be modified b~
circumstances. Herein the Oiplomaoy of France hea
tbe advantage over that of Russia; Sat It It an ad
vantage which lesults from the situation, an<h whiih
t cadets f.ouis Napoleon the arbiter of the fate of Europe.
If p?ace is now made, (and I hardly think there can be
aay doubt about it. after all thr' hat been submitte ? to
br Russia,) Iionis Napoleon will uavt reeeived his consi
deration (o? the new compact, while It will depend on
him, and on the wants of nance, wTketser Russia th%ll
succeed In obtaining her share of the same. The matter
It cerainiy one which is calculated to produce soiae un
eatineas in England, especially now when Oov. ttarcy it
pressing the Central American question, with tLe moral
eeriairyy of compelling England to j ield, or :ovciog the
pitvent ministry to retire iron* the iwinvnistrnt'ou of the
government.
Ihere It no </y>lo?nuij hare in Rome ? and '.he church

Sairect discipline of the Pontifir.iel machine. always rro

convinced of the tpredy conclusion ot peace, and >i the

State* of Europe. The Actrian and Freneh ministers

rax CENTRAL AMERICAN QUESTION AND ENLISTMENT
DIFFICULTY BEFORE PARLIAMENT ? LORI> PALMERS
lON'S EXPLANATIONS? THE CLAYTON-B0LWER
TKEATT AND DARIKK CANAL.
lbe Aria, e hieh left Iiverpt ol on the 3th alt. , brought
us a brief telegiaphic report of the re narks maeo in the
House of Commons, on evening of 8th nit., by Mr. Cob
At n ?? d Lord Palu.erston, on the a bore subject.-'.
W e hare now a full report of the discussion whioh tx>k
place on that <)ay, which we publish thi? morning.
In the Commons, on the 8th of February, Mr. Couukk
r'.se 10 ask for explanation* from the r'overaniem for
the non-prc.duci.ion of the correspondent respecting our
relations with America. He -aid:? I ask for thu.se ex
p'ataticns because the answer given by the noble 1 jrd at
the head of the government to my inquiry the other night
dote uot appear, for rea-ous I bhwl explain, founded ex
aet'y in t act. I ui-ked the noble lord whether t lie re
would be any objection to lay on the table of the House
the c< rrespoc deuce respecting our present relations with
America4 fbe noble 1 rd stated, inreply, that the cor
respondence in neither of the cases to which my inquiry
referred wai quite completed, acd on that ground be
itfused my appeal. Now, in order to make my ob
servations the more retuily Intelligible, I must pre
mise bat, unhappily, there are two subjeati of
Dispute f xis'.lr g at the present moment, and in
voirlag ?eiy serious and grave considerations between
this count iy and America. One has re erence to the Cen
tral American question of I960. The House is a ?are,
though the country, perhaps, is not, that iu I860 the
English and American governments entered' into a con
vention, moat benign inlts objeot and somewhat novel in
its character, for the purpose of guaranteeing the con
struction of a canal across tbe Isthmus ol Daricn. The
convent ion begins by expressing a hope and desire that tt
mgbt liave the effect, among otoer things, of promoting
peai'cnd amity be .ween the contracting Powers, and
civilization throughout the world. The object |of the
coavention was to enable parties to construct a ship canal
tbr< ugh the narrow isthuius of Central America under a
speiuc guarantee from tbe contracting Powers. The
convention was intended to be elastic in its operation, for
lbe contracting l'overs contemplated* inviting other
Powers to join in the guarantee. Among. other things it
was proviued that, in case of war ships passing through
this canal, or being within a certain distance of its en
trance, should not be subject to capture or molestation.
History scarcely presented an example of a convention
being entered into for objects moro commanding ap
probatlcn. lbe convention was agreed to in I860, but,
owing to the unfortunate propensity of diplomatists to
Involve their sentences in phraseology which become*
unintelligible not only to others But to themselves, it
seemed likeiy to be the cause of very ierious quarrel be
tween the two countries. His honorable friend
the raember for Dumfries had proposed in this
House that there KhouWJ be an examination of
can dilate* for service in tbe diplomatic career, and I
would suggest him to require one qualification? naively,
thst thef should be able to writ* plain and intelligible
Bnglisb. Intbe present case this unfortunate disagree
ment teem* to be the more unaccountable, because both
the Uplomatiata spoke the same language, whereas, ha<l
it been a convention between a German and an English
man, or a Frenchman and an Englishman, there might
have been some excuse for the misunderstanding. From
1869 down to October in last year, this oonventicn had
been the subject of correspondent between this aonntry
and tbe United states; and in October of last year a letter
wfthten by Mt. Buchanan to Lord* Clareoden closed the
coi re.pcndenee, and in December, on tbe meotir* of Con
gress, tbe correspondence, so far rut It relates to the Ame
rican side of the oontroversv, was laid on the table of
(Congress; and I mention this because the noble uurd says
1 hnt the correspondence is not complete. I wish to separate
this subject Irom that of tbe enlistment, in respect to
whioh we we unfortunately Involved in a dispute with
America, and I hope the table lord will give, an answer
i In reference to this subjett as distinct from the
other. We have the correspondence lehHshed in
the United Stat*; it hae also been published in Eng
land, and I hoid in ray hand a. puechlet con
tain! ru it, published aad purchaseabla in London for
aboutene shilling. Nevertheless, I caunobqoote this cor
respondenae, though it is discussed in the newspapers
anu made a t epic of conversation in private. I eau only
brir j forward a motion founded on document* befor>
Par'Jaroent. The answer given to ms question the othes
night by the noble lord was, that this correspondent
was not complete; but he must bavo been in error .n
making that statement, because I<o?d Clarendon, in Sjp
t amber, U66, in hie last letter to. Mr. Buchanan ?n the
tfubject, ate# these words:?
ller M%iesty's r^vernment bad, tndeed? mfralncd l'rom inn

that ?pinion, .be undersigned will contaa his answer to Mr.
Buctaran's present'nste within tbe saroo limits sa tbosa which
Mr . llnchanan haa prescribed to bimseU.
Mr. Duihanan also, is last October, assents to l.oni
Clarendon a statement, that tbe correspondent is con
eluded. He say ?
While far l'rc*a Intending to renew lbe general dinciianion o
tliere inestloni, which has already been exhausted, tbe unde?'<
signet, in passing, weirld make a single obser/atloo, Ac..

ty, who In mAviag, in the American Senate, tlmt tbe pa

correspondence was ended, I shvutd find it in /*? fact

I reevnndenee. aad 1 hope that the noble lord will no? ob

in which thin matter had be'n treated by the bon irabte

(Sir n. 1.. Kt?i)?'s) cpi: ou oi,e cause of that war had
been 'be loo frequent and earren' deoretatfon of hostili

exaggerated expiuMen of u similar tcel iag would rather
encourage party feeling on 'lie other side of the Atlantis
tbac conduco to a just and proper t Jttlement of the
difference. With tegard to' the enlistment in th?
I nitec y ates, he agreed with the honoralWe meoilier for
the West Ricltig. Tt was a most remarlcable and incoa

Tbe moiien for the aojotirameat >f the House until
Mcndsy was then agteed to.
[From the London Times, I'ah. IS.]
A few nights since lord 1'almemton addressed tbe
House on the diiferenaes that hav*-e.iisea with America.
In answer to ,Mr. Cobden's argstmests, he gave to tbe
world a statement ot the rise and p.eseat state of the
dispute, and appeslsd to bis bearers tor a jusUHcatlow
whioh will hardly he withheld. Wl'h respect to the af
fairs of Central America, -he 'stated what 'm srell known
in be the fact, that the spirit cf the treaty concluded was
t< prevent further acquisitions of torrttorv by either of
ti i contractlrg Powers. As Knglpnd bar. long possessed
a -olooy of mote or less impovtanee oa this coast. Her
nitnitltm %v<ier:tood the treaty to rrftr to further settlements,
and, ti3/ to thnte already matie. The Taited States took a
different view, and demsaded tbe Immediate evacuation
ot the territory we had faneie d >eeured to ua. Here waa
a difficulty somewhat hard to be overcome; "but," ,-iays
l.ord Palmcrston, "ire have offered to re%v the matter to
srtl' ration " whatever maw he lh? gaaeral opinion aa
to the merits of this mode x lecieion, 14 at leaat shown

declaration of l.ord I'aloaerston wao received with
app'anse by an assembly which ^ while Jealona
for its own country '* dignity. (4- not unmindful
of what is du* to lie. spirit ti peace. With
eqnal frerkne-s did the Bii'.isb I 'rainier point out the in
cidents of the second dispute. We u"?e thrtalme<l with a
fuA/nntien <f international relation ?. Ihe two branehea
of tbe Anglo Saxon tace etll only cormepond oAcially by
means of a consul, or, at moat, a eceeatar j. PnuMj/ tta
una', Aartn may arise frjmi a ihart cmm'ivn qf iHplomatic
oitivity , but the cause of this mu'aa? Interdict, and not
the thing Itself, is of nave importance. Such aa iater
ruption is genera! 'y looked upon r 4 -spproachhw nearly to
a state of hostility, "a fact, in ruah a caae, everything
has been done whi)h tisaally [jmmde* the first irre
vocable blow? the great Isttlnp ?ut of tha waters of
strife. Tbe House then listened with attention to tha
words of the First M mister. F.e> stated that in the dlrec
tiecj for the enlistnent luCsncda strict orders were given
that nothing should be done to .tifringe the municipal ra
fulabions of the States or vi?Me the Uwe of tbe ( aiea.
e added, more wer, that when it v*a found thla
enlistment might caaae offence to the Amerioaa
government and people orders were given tor
its cessation, and thia laAre any rr aeons trance waa
received. When official repfeeentatlons vere mada com
plaining ol an alleged infringement of American law.
the British government ecpreased Its r<4|r?t at enoe and
and without reserve. I ot.l Palmeretca thus exel'.aitty
stated that his government' Urst did all that tt avaid to
avoid giving ofence. ani when charged srlth diseoisrtexy
promptly apologised. Thiaieclaration was rsoeivsd with
heers by the British tenia ot Commons, The temper of
