arly Intertstteg to-day. Onr Paris letters describe,
n glowing terms, the efforts made by the Sardinian
Mmifct* r, the Count dc Car our, to t'or:e the ques
tion of Italian independence on the attention of his
fellow plenipotentiaries. He is said to bare had
Mrewl interviews with I.ouis Napoleon on the sub
ject, in which he vvon over the sympathies of the
fetter by the words trf burning eloquence wbi h he
addressed to him. The Sardinian minister is said to
fee one of the most remarkable men of his time; but
we fear 'hat all his exertions will be thrown away
in endeavoring to obtain in that quarter support for
bus views. Our Madrid correspondent sends us tbe
continuation of Don Buenaventura Vivo's revelatious
regarding the projected Spanish American league
against the United States. Although translated into
very obscure English, it preserves sufficient of the
spirit of '.he original to give ua not only an excellent
idea of the pompous self conceit of the ex-Minister,
tat what is more impoitant, of the extent of the ob
jects aimed at by his instructions, and of the manner
is which hia propositions were received by the go
vernments to whom they were addressed. These
disclosures go fully to confirm the statements made
from time to time as to the active intrigues of the
English and French agent-, in the affairs of Central
and South America.
From Mexico we learn that changes in the Cabi
net of Comonfoit wcro in contemplation, and that
Payno, the Minister of Finance, would probably be
Bent to England. His post will be filled by I.erdo
de Tejada. Lafragua will go to Spain, and Doblado
accept the War Department. Owing to the resig
nation of Rosas, Laconza will resume the manage
ment of 'he Department of Foreign Relations.
Our Porto Cabellocorrespondent, writing on the
<th of April, states that the Dutch fleet on ihe coast
was waiting to be informed ol' the result of the nego
tiation* then pending relative to the claims of the
subjects of Holland on the Yoneznel in government
for indemnity, and if unfavorable to the people,
the =hips would blockade all their ports immediate
ly. This action i.- forcibly contrasted with the
policy of oar own government in the came country,
where the demands of our people for redrew- are not
even presented. The government of Holland also
insists on the possession of the Aves Island &? its
property, althongh the executire of Venezuela has
Bold the gnano to a company in Philadelphia. The
Monagas dynasty ruled only through the "spoils."
A custom house o Hc' tor calculates on making a

Advices from Caracas to April f> have also been
received, being three days later than those from
Porto Cabello. Our correspondent at t unicas
gives a somewhat different account of the difficulty
wit}; the Dutch government from that received
via Porto Cabello. seven Hatch vessels !;%<] threat
ened, under certain contingencies, not only to
blockade the port of Venezuela, but to seize on the
adjoining islands, which abound with guano. Pre

The otioiiuade.it I'i< \nience during the p.lst
week is v. o.eady and f tm. wi'h moderate sales.
Tlio .wAt of wool was wry light. Too let ?f the ,
week were it,400 pounds, at previous rates. Printing
cloths were firm, but not quotably higher. The
sales were 68,100 pieces.
The imports of foreign goods into Boston during
the past week amounted to $788,442. The principal
articles were sngar, molasses, dry goods, saltpetre,
iron and steel.
The cotton market was firm on Saturday. The
stiffness of holders had a tendency to check sales.
The transactions for the day embraced between
2,000 and 3,000 bales. Flour continued dull. In.
ferior and common grades, in the absence of
an export demand, were lower, while the me
dium qualities also had a tendency to lower
prices; choice family extras were about the same.
Wheat was heavy, and sales of fair Southern white
were made at $1 75. Corn was more active, but
prices were weak; they ranged from 60c. a 62Ac. for
all kinds in sound condition. Rye was dul. and
lower; Northern sold at 90c., and Southern was at
about 80c. a 85c. Pork was firmer, with sales of
mesa at $16 37$ a *18 50. Sugars were steady
and to'erubly active. The sales embraced about
*00 a 900 hbds. at tigsres given in another column.
Coffee sold freely at lljc. a life, for Rio. The
chief transactions consisted of about 5,000 bags of
Rio at figures stated. Freights to Liverpool were
some firmer: about 40,000 a 50,000 bushels of grain
were engaged at 4d. a 4jd. a 4Ad. in balk and bags,
and at the close 5d. was demanded.
Tbs Jugglers of the Cincinnati Convention ?
The Ptot Thickens.
According to our special despatch from Wash
ington, whiuk we lay before our readers this
morniDg, the plot is thickening among the
democratic jugglers for the dainty prize of the
Cincinnati Convention.
Tbc working of the complex machinery of
these swindling gatherings is very extraordi
nary. In lS-t f Martin Van Buren had a clear
majority of the Convention ; but they fastened
the two-thirds rule about his neck and suak
bim. In 1818 Gen. Cass was nominated : but
Van Buren had his revenge ; for Cass was do '
touted by that purely rcvcDgelul Buffalo ti:k
et. in 1852 all the great democratic guns were
| spiked oDce more, and the compromise at last
agreed upon was decidedly smaller than the
calibre or Vol. Poik. The same materials, the
*ame causes, the same rivalries aad jealousies,
the same cliques and the same outstanding
candidates will come up before the same tri
bunal at Cincinnati. What, then, can we ex
pect but the same results'.'?first, the guillotin
ing of fhe most dangerous candidate to all the
rest, and then their mutual destruction, till
they make the astounding discorery that the
right man had been overlooked for a whole
week!
That two-thirds rule, in fact, has given
heretofore to a small and factious majority io
these packed conventions, the jestiniea of thi
great country and its masses^^ndopendect,
l liberty loving and intelligent people ; and
trom the same source wc can expect nothing
but the same consequences again. Think of
ninety-nine men at Cincinnati?cross-road poli
ticians and tricky spoilsmen, elected as dele
gates, some of them, perhaps, by hall' a dozen
boon companions, others chosen by themselves,
deciding upon the suffrages, the rights, the
worldwide interests of this vast republic of
twenty-seven millions of people, supposed to
possess, themselves, the sovereign power in
the government, and in the elections to its of
fices! What a mockery it moires of democra
cy, personal independence and popular sove
reignty ! Whatalarce!
The Columbus (Ala.) Timet gives the only
plausible plea for this two thirds rule at the3e
"extraordinary assemblies."' It says??'The
demociatic candidates chcsen under it will
compare favorably with those selected under
the majority rule by the whig party. In point
of ability, Van Bur on, Folk, Cass and Fierce
are fully equal to Harrison, Clay. Taylor and
Scott. We theretore protest most solemnly
against the abrogation of the two-thirds rule
by the Cincinnati Convention. It is the only
check held by the Sonth, in these extraordi
nary assemblies, upon the overwhelming North
ern majorities. Until quiet iB restored to the
country; until the rights of the South arc re
cognized and respected by the North, and the
slavery agitation is settled, we should regard
that Southern man as either knave or fool who
should propose or % ote for the abrogation of
the two-thirds rule. Is not the North now
vastly in the majority in these conventions'.'
Why increase their power, until at least they
have show n themselves capable of using it with |
discretion.
There is something in that argument, if we
admit that the Northern democracy are in the
slightest degree tainted with the nigger wor
shipping mania Eat that cannot be. A short
time since we modestly suggested that a "free
eollhh t\pc of the democracy did exist in the
North, and that it had its antipathies to snch
Nebraska candidates ob Pierce, Dougla3, Bright
and Atchison; but we were instantly pounced
upon by the Cabinet organ at Washington and
by its echoes, as a malicious slanderer of the
unspotted democratic party. No ? never!
Theie is nothing "free toilish" among its ma
terial in the North. The Van Buren-rierce
den ocrat.- had passed through the fire, and hud
came out without as much as. the f meli of tree
soil or n'gg^ri.-m on their garments. ?ucL beinv
the ca*' 'hen, why should the democra 7 of the
South be so ?r ipicion3 of their Northern br ith
ron t these love foams' The plain
truth In, that the manager* cv these cor-en
tionr are simply ?po iamen, and they meet to
appropriate the with *he same feel!r.js
of frs'.-rr'ty a- thoae which govern a gang o;

H?f Cheap ??t' *? Movftn'nl In l-'nufnrwl.
The r.\olution which has been gradually
taking ; lace in the organization o, the daily
pre.'- ot England since the alteration of the
stamp duties, may be regarded as another
grand- ride made by the Engli-h d moiracy
towards popular institutions. High priced
newspap limited the d't'.u don of political In
formation to the wealthier classes, and heavy
stump duties were conr>eriuently clung to by
the aristocracy as one of the safeguards of their
order. Who the breaking down of this mo
nopoly wc may expect to -cc the selC?h bar
! tiers by Which the latter hedged in their pmi
, leges, yield one after the other. A cheap pi >ss
' is the mo t potent instrument which the ioui
? r r of the masses Oan wield. The democrat' ;
perty in Engl, ud have been long j .n ,ibk of
this tr itb; but it has only been by degrees '.'.at
they could rci ovo the obstacles which lroavy
i government duties opposed to its attainment,.
The cheap press movement is now taking a
dtv elopement which threatens eventually to
chang' he entire framework of the social and
political institutions of Grout Britain. The ef
fects of the abolition of the stamp duties would
hare been manifested in a more marked man
ner before this, but for the fact that the coun
try was engaged in a dangerous war, and that
the old political organs could not be die*
pensed with until its conclusion. The
stupendous organization of such a paper,
for instance, as the London Times, affords in a
time oi political excitement a means of satis
fying the publio eagerness for news which,
without the aid that a cheap press possesses
here in the shape of advertisements, the latter
would in England fail in presenting. Untii,
therefore, it is succession? demonstrated that
a penny paper can be rendered as interesting
to the public and as remunerative to its pro
jectors as a high prioed one, the results of the
abolition of the stamp duties cannot be said to
be l'airfy proved. The experiments which have
lately been made in London must not, for thees
reasons, be considered as testing accurately
the commercial results of the measure. Ia the
first place they were nearly all set on foot with
out capital; and in the second, they haul to
contend against the wealthiest newspaper mo
nopolies in the world, at a time when the cri
tical choc instances in which England found
herself left her but little disposed to accept
new vehicles of opinion. The conclusion of
peace has removed one of these obstacles; the
sagacious efforts of the leaders of the demo
cratic party will speedily overcome the other
Tbey have recently, we understand, collected
a fund amounting to ?100,000, for the pur
pose of estabiisoing penny daily papers
in London and eight or ten large
cities. Rt collecting the success which attend
ed the exertions of the Anti-Corn Law party,
there is no doubt that this sum can be raised
to half a million sterling in the course of the
year. The subscribers to this fund will derive
a fair return irom the investment ia case the
speculation succeeds. 01 this we ourselves do
not entei tain the least question, provided, ot
course, the plan is properly worked out. We
have the results of our own experience to
guide us to a conclusion in the matter.
In 1830 the press of the United States was
pretty much in the same concition as that of
Englond. The old monopolies had it all their
own way, giving hut small value for a high price.
The cheap press started into existence between
1830 and 183.", and in twenty years it has ob ,
tained the vantage ground over old journals
and old politicians. It could not have done
this had it been confined to the profits of its
circulation; but Its projectors eav that they
had before them a mine of wealth which until
then had been entirely unexplor ,d by their
predecessors, and which would folly sustain
the enterprise. The cheap press of America
called into existence a new class #f adver
tisers and business. It created, in part,
as it progressed, the resources from
whence it derived its support This power
of vivifying whatever it touched, con
stituted the secret of its independence and in
fluence. Without it could not exi3t, except
on the plan of the old party papers, which
lived on contributions. The same principle,
if properly worked, will conduot the cheap
press of Great Britain to an important and pro
fitable results. In each large town through
out the three kingdoms there con be estab
lished in the course of a short lime, a penny
(sterling) daily, of from 10,000, to 50,000 cir
culation, supported by advertisements that will
yield from $5,000, to $20,000 income, if mana
ged with discretion. They will call into ex
istence quite a new class of advertisers and
readers. who will become in their turn a formi
dable power in the State.
But we repeat, the financial condition of
the penny papers must be placed on a
secure footing before their political influ
ence can be established. Without that they
would be unable to struggle against their
high priced rivals. It is the failure of en
terprises without capital which has already
led to so much disappointment amongst the
advocates of a cheap press. The promoters of
the new movement arc taking the proper steps
to meet this difficulty. They will succeed in
their object if they bring proper energy and
business tact to bear upon it. There is one
thing, it should be added, which would sweep
away a great maD? difficulties from Iheir path,
and that is the enlargement of the electoral
basis from 800,000 to 2,000,000 votes. With
such a constituency to appeal to. the cheap
press of Great Britain would in time become
almost as powerful a political lever as that of
the United States.
A Cooj. Tp.axsactoon.?Tho Board of Alder
men had a meeting on Friday evening, and all
of the comfortable chairs were full. As it is
very difficult to get a quorum for any public
business, a full Board is a sign that some pri
vate matter is to be rushed through. The mat
ter on the table was the report of the Commit
tee on Wharves, Piers and Slips, in favor of
confirming the award of contract for complet
ing the bulkhead at Manhattanville. As there
was thought to have been some "hocus pccus-'
about tbiri contract, the report, was tabled at a
previous meeting; but on Friday all hands ral
lied to push it through. The report awarded
the contract tc the lowest bidder?a person of
the name of A dam .1 ?a* ?4 I* further
suggested tha* if" Mr. Adr.ms did not perform
the wor it was to be given to ti?ene?rt lowest
bidder at aid.TOG 07. A delate sprung up
which lasted sevora. hours. Tao ground taken
by the opponents of the report was that it co
vered a scheme to rob the city of nearly
this w ould be done by the noi -
Mr. Adams, which hud been pre
viou "'S^-d- Aldermen Tucker and
' Voorhia .iked "hard for a postponement.
The aide, men who favoied the report, being
confident of their strength, were as in-olent as
gldcrnArtiic majorities iL-ualiyure. Alderman
Ely submitted a fair compromise, in the shape
of an amendment, thut if Adams did not coino
forward 10 sign the cor.lract, the Street Uum
mi sinner should be directed to advertise anew
for bids. The majori y <-ptuug the previous
question, which was ordered, and the amend

We have given the votes on this matter
from the official record, so that the consiitu'

scheme which will result in a loss to the city
of some thirty thousand dollars. We do not
accaBe tbem o It. The charge is made by the
members of their own board In debate. We
have beard that such things are too often done
at the City Hall, and that through such things
the contract pjstf-m has become a farce. Toe
majority of the Aloermen may be all right on
this matter; hut if euco is the fact, what earthly ,
opposition could there bo to Alderman Ely's
proposition? Tbe proceedings of the Board of
Aldermen have an ugly look about them, and j
the only way to prevent such things In future '

Wabkinoto*, April 27,186S.
The H?<tering p i polar receptions of Mr. Buchanan,
from New York to Fhi adelphia, have only operated here
to staipen the wita and activity of hie democratic rivals
'or tho C.ncinnatl nvmlratina.
Th-re is already existiig the very next thing to a
regular ruder standing between the Fierce aud Douglas
m?n, that the first tbirg requ'red ia t < kdioff Buchanan
and as :his woik is to be done, not among the masses of
the people, bat among the <ie t-gates to Cincinnati, it is
among those gen' ouit-u that the wtik cf mining and
coun'ernitiling is got.- g or. The remits at Cincinnati wilt
most probably be the same as at the Convrn lone of 1814
ind 1852. Fist., the most oonaplcuoua candicate will lie
thrown overboard by a combination against him; and
that heir g done, the reaaain<ng prominent candidates will
ceattoy each other, and be driven to the old alternative
of some unexpected aud glorious discovery that the bappv
man ia another Col. Polk, Gen. Fierce or Captain John
Mlh.
I ur.derstard lhat the New York s^fls, wills they are
not willing to bolt down Gen. Fierce, NeSrasba bill and
a.I, at a single gc'p, are disposed to make a compromise,
like that of the girl with one ot her adinlrera. bald she,
"I'm ytnr friend, Frank, hut 1 can't lore you; I can'l
marry you; but If it,a any comfort to you, 1 ataureyou 1
shan't marry anybody elre from your side of tho creek "
Fo the New York softs say of Fraikkn Pierce, "We
are his friends; hat we don't love him; yet If we rotate
him, we shad aho rijeet any other Northern man wb"*?
chUf pretensions rest npea tbe Nebraska bill. We will
take a Southern man?a eonsis'ent man?from the other
side of the lixe; bo cause we ean understand why a
Southern man should support the repeal of the Missouri
compromise; and he dose not debase and stultify hiciseli
ia doing it."
Look out, then, for a repetition of the game of 1844
and 1852, and an unexpected nomination, txeept by the
p'otters of tbe plot. Meantime, a pamphlet of fifty-six
paces or so ia nearly ready for the press, full of ex iraeta.
ke., proving to the South that Buchanan is fishy ami
unsound on the nigger question. It Is to be .ssued jus"
in time for tht Ccnvention. The Sewardltes and anti
slavery Know Nothings are also doing what they can for
tbo rencminatien of Mr. Pierce. They say that with Ool.
Fremont they can whip the New Hampshire General out
of his boots, and they want bim nominated.
The Bomlnaticn of Captain Ingraham ah head of tho
ordnance Bureau, was a deep laid scheme to settle the
Naval Retiring Board difficulty. The unbounded and
well deserved personal popularity of Captain I., It wa?
supposed by the administration, would cany his nomi
ratlon through the Senate nrm. con., and soch seemed
lkely to he the result when the catch was discovered.

TBI SEVENTEEN SHORTEST PASSAGES ACBObS TBI
ATLANTIC.
11m r<MDt short pasmg? of the Pereia has attracted
considerable e teitioa. It is the shortest oa record. In
eonneetirii wiib it, we give Ail the passage* that hav?
been made under tea days, Actual running time, both
of the Collins and Canard lines, as they hare been from
year to year published in the colnmni of the IIsuiD.
In order to give the exact time consumed by each
steamer on her passage we hare dednoUdJflre hours from
the eastfrn and added the sauio number ef hours to the
western passages, which Is bnt four minutes more than
the real difference In time. By adopting thle rule as tha
bests of all toe passages, it will bo noticed that ona or
more rf the westerly runs that hare been published as
under ten days, will no' tie found in the table given be
low : and it will also be perceived that a few of those that
havo been reported as a little over ten days on their
eastern passage luw, by the same rule, been plaeed in
the table, In ooosequen i? of deducting the fire hours.
Fourteen eastern peerage* bare been made in less than
'en days, and but thrie western. The Collins steamer
Battle made two ot the tares western, and the Cunard
steamer Arabia the otn*r < ne, both of the Baltio'u being
a few hours shorter then the Arabia's.
The Cunard s'eamsr Persia, on her last passage to
Iiverpool, made a shorter run across tha AUantio than
had evsrbef.-re been see nipl'shed.
Ait of the Collins ''earners hava made the passage to
Iiverfieo} in l**s ttun tea days, and but two of the
CunarderB have per'o-aoel the same feat, in 1963 three
runs were made to Liv?> puol by ae many Collins steam
ere with but fifteen minute* difference in time between
them. Durirg the >am.< yea/,toe Arabia, of the Cunard
line, made four ea* era p. ssaees in less than tea days,
and there was but five hears ant thirty-eight minutes
difference between the loiges. and shortest of them, the
three tirst being la succession, vis.May 4, June 16,
and July 27. aid the other was in Ootober.
The cifferei ce between the Pe .la's best eastern pas
sage and that of the Sable's best western, is but four
hoars and thirty fi re minutes in favor'of the former.
Those acquainted with tno subject are aware that
there is no mail difference between an eastern and n
western passage, a? d those who are unacquainted can
form some k ea oi it f. on the fact that only three west
ern passages have b en made under ten days, while four
teen eastern ones tav been see irpliahed.
We now proceed u> glvi all the passages ne'er tea
days, deduc'iag five nou a from the lime on the eastern,
and adding five b' o-s to the western passages. The
third column gives the da* of the* month and hoar of
arrival, and the four h and last columns the true
time consumed, a'ter a< d acting five hours from the east
ern, and adding the same number to the western pas
sages, as we have before slat d :?

'I'hc Hebrew Pweeover.
On yesterday week, or rather on Saturday evening
week, began the most solemn fast known to the Jews?
the Passiver. It commenced at sanset on the Itth day
of the mcntb Nissan, aoccrding to the Jewish chronology,
and will last nntil sunset this evening. The first two
Jays and the last two days aro .observed with peculiar
rigor, and with many significant religious rites. This
oeremony is held in commemoration of the slaying of
he first bern of Fgypt by the angel of the Lord, and
'be exodus of the Israelites from the tyranny of the
Pharoah3. The Hebrews were commanded, it will be re
numbered, to take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the
blood of a lamb and stain the lintel and two side posts of
their houses, no that the angel of death, in his mission of
vengeance, might spare God's chosen people; and from
this came the designation l'a'scver. The following morn
ing the Israelites left Egypt, after having borrowed all
the jewels and ornaments oi silver and gold of their
neighbors, without giving any equivalent tberelor, ac
cording 1o the command of Moses.
The tollowing is tbe passage from Exodus xil, 36-36:?
And the children of Israel did according to the word o
Motes; and thev borrowed of the Egyptians je vela of sij'
vcr and jewels of g' Id, and raiment.
And the lord gate the people favor In the sight of the
Egyptians, so that tliey lent unto them sush things as
they roquli ed, and they spoiled the Egyptians.
In their haste to (icapo, they had aot time to hake
the bread properly, as tbe story goes on to relate?
And tbey baked unhavened cakes of the dough whiok
they brought forth oat of Egypt, for it wae not leavened,
because they were thrust out of Egypt and could not tar
ry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victuals.
l'rcm this event the eating cf unleavened bread has ori
ginated. and during this sacred season no fermented li
quor or railed bread is used. The dough is baked into
a hard cake called matros, that looks and tastes like sea
blscnit, but which is much thinner.
The ft Mowing, from Exodus 12, 6 to 8, gives a clear Idea
of the meat ctiering at this season:?
Your lamb shall l>e without blcm'sh, a male of tbe first
yesr; ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the
goats.
And ye '?hall keep it until the fourteenth day of the
same month: ana the whole a-sembiy of the congregation
ot Israel shall kill it in 'he evoning.
And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the
i wo side pests, and cn the upper door post of the houses
wherein they dial! eat it.
And they shall cat the ficsli In that night, roast with
fire, and unieavenei htead: and with bitter herbs they
shall eat It.
To this day the Tlebrew observes those rites, and clings
with wonderful tenacity to the meat ofieiings and the
dunk offclings associated with the return of this anniver
sary. They are a peculiar people, and no^laws, however
oppri-s.-ive, have been ablo to change their character, ha.
bits or ridigicns rites one iota. To day, being the lass
of iho 1'assovor, will witness tbomost Impressive ceremo
nies ht the several synagogues.
