The screw steamship City of Washington, which
left Liverpool on the forenoon of the 12th inst., arrived
at this port early last evening, ^having made
the quickest eastern passage across the Atlantic
ever performed by a propeller.
The news by this arrival is four days later than
previous advices, and is important, inasmuch as a
ministerial crisis was pending in England, growing
oat of the government of India policy. Lord EUen i
borough, President of the Board of Control, had al
ready retired from office, and a motion of censure of
the course of the government was to be submitted
to Parliament on the 13th. Whether this would
lead to a dissolution of the Cabinet was a problem
about which public opinion seemed to oe anything
but unanimous. The Continental intelligence
is unimportant. Owing to the com
plexion of political affairs in England the London
money market was depressed, and a decline in
the funds is reported. In Liverpool cotton was
steady, while other American staples |remlined
without material change.
News from Hong Kong to the 20th of March and
from Calcutta to the 9th of April had reached London.
The intelligence contained nothing of special
We have news from Sierra Leone, west coast of
Africa, to the 13th ult. Our correspondent says the
United States squadron, consisting of sloops of war
Cumberland, I>ale and Marion, pass and tonch there
occasionally, and all are in good health and
are a jolly set of fellows, and are proverbial
for tlieir promptness in affording aid and
assistance to vessels not only bearing the American
flag, but to foreigners of every description who reuire
friendly aid. The British squadron in those
waters is indefatigable in its endeavors to suppress
the traffic in slaves. All vessels with Spanish flags
are certain to be overhanled and examined, and
some American captains, who have to submit to the
same ordeal. are loud in their complaints of the
treatment they receive. The Melacory war continued.
and the English troops sent there have met with
hard work and some casualties. The demand for
fortiori articles was slack, but it was hoped that the
market* would revive for next season's trade. American
bwles t*old at 22 to 24 per lb. Ginger and
palm oil were in proportion aa to price.
By an arrival at this port we have news from Ma
raraiho. Venezuela, to the 4tb inat. The citj waa
trauuuil. and the inhabitanta were anxioxaly awaiting
the arrival of Gen. Paez from the United States.
Gen. Jose Gregorio Monagas, brother of the late
Prthidcnt, together with his son Jalk>, had arrived
at Marsraibo, and were irnpriaoned in the fort at the
entrance of the harbor by order of the provisional
government. Ex President Monagai remained in
custody at Caracas, awaiting his trial.
The particulars of two more outrages by British
cnioen> are reported in today's paper. The ship
Clarendon was boarded in the harbor of Sagna la
Grande by an officer from the steamer Buxaard,
when an altercation occurred between him and the
captain of tbe Clarendon which at one time threatened
serioua consequence* to the former. The bark
Jobu Howe was boarded while on the passage from
Havana to Hagua la Grande, and again boarded and
searched upon her arrival in port.
Tbe President has determined to put a stop to
these outrages, and accordingly, aa we announced
in yesterday's paper, tbe Secretary of the N'avy has
in-ued orders to Commanders HarUtene and John
Rodger* to assume command of the steamers Arctic
and Water W itch, to fit tbem out without delay, and
proceed to the Gulf to intorpoae American gun*
l-etween the British cruisers and oar merchantmen
Other vessel* will follow w noon m they can bo pre
pared for the service. The President Is determined,
if a collision should result. that the responsibility
shall rest where it properly belongs- upon the Bri
tiah gt vrrnment. which gare the offensive orders,
and the British Minister here, who is, doubtless, cog
nixant of the instructions given to their officer*.
In the Benate on Saturday the Chairman of the
Committee on Naval Aflhirs introduced a bill providing
far the construction of six steam sloops of
war. and the House Committee will to-day propose
the building of ten screw steam vessels, of light
draft. each carrying two formidable pieees of ordnance.
It is designed to make these vessels superior
in every respect to the British gunboats. The feel
lng of ( ongmST is so strong on the subject of the
outrages by the British that it is not improbable that
even a larger number of vessels will be authorised
than ts included in either of the above propositions.
Indeed.lt is stated that the House Committee on
Foreign Affaire intend to propose the construction of
thirty new war sjeamere. The English have at this
moment thirty six war steamer*, of various sixes, In

The interesting advices from Washington
which we published yesterday in regard to the
action of the President and Congress in the
matter of the British outrages, and the farther
particulars of them which reach us daily, are
strong indications of the current of popular
feeling. The hodden discovery that receot
events have led to, of the existence of a spiteful
feeling toward this country on the part of some
of the oldest and most prominent statesmen in
England, may yet produce very complicated
political and commercial results in both countries.
A disclaimer of iutended affront, and the
usual excuse, of some over zealous officer having
exceeded his instructions, oan hardly be resorted
to in the present instance, for there is a singular
uniformity of proceeding on theapart of several
of the British cruisers off the coast of Cuba.
All of them exhibit the same want of discrimination
of class and character of ships boarded,
the same minnte detail of impertinent inquiry
and officioas search, and the same utter disregard
of the evident and patent legality of flag
and voyage.
These facts will sink deep into the American
mind, and may go very far toward producing a
revulsion sf that cordial and friendly feeling
which has been growing up between the two
countries for some time past. When the recent
war in the East first became imminent, the symDathies
of this countrv were heartilv with the
Western Towers of Europe. This feeling
was suddenly curdled by a foolish statement
of Lord Clarendon on the floor of
Parliament, that the policy of the
Anglo-French alliance contemplated meddling
not only with the question of Turkey, but with
the policy of nations in every part of the world.
The American people saw behind the mask the
British statesmen assumed, and tbongh entertaining
not the slightest impulse of fpar, they
lent their cordial sympathy to Russia in the
Eastern war. This feeling was increased by the
fiasco of Crampton in endeavoring to carry out
certain instructions of Lord Palmerston in this
When Crampton was sent home Lord Napier
came out here, and by a few honeyed words, with
seeming honesty on his lips, gave a new impulse
to the natural friendship that should exist between
the people of America and Eagland
One of the waifs of England's "Resolute" spirit
was found by an American seaman, derelict in
the byways of the ocean, and it was sent home
by an act of Congress. When a great and virtuous
Queen trod the once frozen deck, aud in
her silver tones uttered a heartfelt "I thank
you" to our Yankee commander as the stars
and stripes slowly sank to give place to the
cross of St George over their clasped hands,
every American heart felt a glow of pleasare.
When the outbreak in India followed, and we
saw with Saxon pride that England still was
true to Saxon plack. oar hearts were with her;
and as she marshalled her legions for the antipodes
we were ready to slap John Ball on the
shoulder and cry oat. Go it old fellow, you're
a brick. When England's hero fell a
victim to disease, our flags were lowered
In honor to the name of Havelock;
for. to use a homely Western phrase, " he had
whipped his weight In wild cats," or what is
equivalent. Bengal tiger*. Only a few crackbrained
Irishmen failed to unite in this heartfelt
sympathy of the whole American people.
Bat recent events show that Palmerston still
burns with hate because of his defeat on the enlistment
question. He was forced to back down
on that; and though the English journals maintained
a prudent silence about it, the leading
circles of England shook with a quiet laugh at
his discomfiture. For this, doubtless, it was
that he directed Lord Napier to endeavor to stir
up here the fires of sectional agitation, by renewing
the subject of the African slave trade in his
diplomatic correspondence, and gave the in
tructions to a fleet of British gunboats to cruise
off the coast of Cab* and harrass our shipping.
Unwitting of these new orders, the sympathy of
the American people waa still with the people of
England. When the Draini affair came to overtarn
Palmerston. and to dhow him that, old m
he was, he little knew bow small the sympathy
of England waa with the crowned tyrannies of
the Continent, and the aoquittal of Bernard by
an English jury ah owed that the love of liberty
waa "till inherent and predominant in the Engliah
mind, the American people still sympathised
with England and rejoiced in both of
these eTeata Bat they only add new elements
to Fnlmerstoo's rankling hate for the United
State*, and may yet prodnoe evil results.
The sadden check which this state of good
feeling baa experienced by the recent searches
of American vessels and diplomatic movements
of the British Minister, complicates exceedingly
the position of the present English Premier in a
political point of view, and may lead to some very
cnrloas commercial results. A war with England.
by depriving our markets of their usual
supplies of British goods, would give an impulse
to the mannfarturins Industrvof this conntrv of
the rnont extraordinary kind. The flunh time*
of the war with Mexico would be nothing to it
And whether abort or long in duration, the
trade with England would never be built up

A Taxpayer's Party?H?w ta Govern tta
City and Save aw Packets.
The taxpayers of this plundered city shoul
remember that nine millions a year in taxes ar
extorted from their property, and that nearl
four millions of this sum are deliberately stolei
through the wretched and utterly corrupt systei
of our city government. By proper manag<
ment the city could be better governed than i
is now for five millions. In fact, it is not goveri
ed at all at the present time. We get no retur
for the immense outlay; our streets an1 filth
and pestiferous; our suburban roads are unf
for use; our police system is so villanous the
neither life nor property is protected; frau
and corruption reign unchooked in our publi
offices. And to maintain this system we ar
more heavily taxed in proportion to our populi
tion and property than any city in the world.
The taxpayers should remember, also, that w
owe all this mismanagement and rascality t
the fact that the officers of the city governmer
are politicians?are elected by a combination <
rowdies and vagabonds, and gamblers an
fighters, who own no property and pay no tax*
whom they use for that purpose, because th
property owners, who hare an interest in th

I t? m?ww mm Vmh?n. Ion TMtU
not mm Bear Ms Tiartnllu
(' We pubiiah thia morning several letters from
I oar correspond nt at Fort Bridget, giving the
i latest and mo? reliable intelligence from that
, quarter. It w II be seen, from the information
f thus conveyed, that the Utah difficulty Is not
f .wearing quite so satisfactory an aspect as the
} previous accounts seemed to impart to it. It is
g true that Governor Gumming was on his way to
Salt Lake City, but the olroumstances under
f which he undertook this step do not justify the
I expectation that it will in any way advance the
f objects of the expedition.
It should be borne in mind that Brlgham
Young has always declared that General Johne
eton 't force shall never be permitted to enter their
0 city. Now, notwithstanding the statements that
e have reached us of the alarm nnder which the
Mormon leaders are said to be laboring, and of the
't . - ? _ _ j ? A ? _s.j i as ?A
resignation or mieuaea r?Ngwuua 01 jlhiguaui
I himself, the effort* that have been made to induce
Governor Camming to trust himself unattended
^ in their hands looks to us more like a determij
nation on the part of the Saints to maintain
I their position than to back out of it in the way
which they are said to oontemplate. Had they
. been disposed to make such a submission as the
J* federal authorities are alone instructed t j act
cept, they had aa opportunity of opening negotiations
through Colonel Kane during his Btay
' in Salt Lake City. But it is well known that
. Colonel Kane could effeot nothing by his per^
eonal influence with Brigham Young, and that
^ he left Salt Lake under strong feelings of disQ
appointment He nevertheless did not abandon
bis task of mediator, for again we find him at
Fort Bridger, endeavoring to bring about concessions
on the part of the federal authorities
which might lead to a compromise of some kind.
Now, the mission of Colonel Kane has always
^ been enigmatical to us. He is by some
e supposed to be armed with semi-official
7 instructions from the President, but we
l' are quite sure that he bears no official
n character of any kind. The only explanation
that has been offered of his interference is that
'l he has lived among the Mormons, is favorably
l" regarded by them, and entertains the most
Q friendly feelings towards them. These facts,
? however they may qualify him to counsel these
misguided men tor tneir own oenent, are not
lt altogether of a character to render him a safe
d adviser, under present circumstances, to the
c federal authorities, whose course is decisively
e marked out by their instructions. It will be
recollected that when the United States army
first established Itself at Fort Bridget, an invitation
was sent to Governor Cumming to enter
10 Salt Lake City unattended by a military force.
That invitation was very properly declined, be^
cause Brigham Young and his followers had no
right to dictate the manner in whiob the United
States representatives should proceed. They
6 stood in the position of rebels, and they could
6 only expect to be treated with the rigorous
6 forms that are prescribed in such cases.
* From the facts stated by oar correspondent it
appears that Governor Camming has been int
duced to reconsider the policy of his first decl^
sion solely through the persuasion of Colonel
I Kane. In this he would seem to have dissented
j from the opinion of his military oolleague,
e General Johnston, who, true to his principles
^ as a soldier, refused to concur in any steps that
might be looked upon as a departure from his
instructions. lie even declined, it is stated, to
^ grant the Governor a military escort, declaring
that no soldier under his command should enter
^ Salt Lake City unless accompanied by the whole
army. And so Governor Cumming, acting
^ under amateur advice, or on his own indepenj
dent judgment, departed on his journey, truste
lag himself to the protection of a Danite escort,
commanded by a notorious man named Porter
. Rockwell, who, according to the description
which we copy from the St. Louis Rrpublwin, is
. capable of way crime.
>f We own that we entirely agree with the view
that ban been taken by General John*ton of
thin step. We cannot aee any possible advantage
that can arise from it, saving to Brlgham
it Young and hie confederates. The object of the
>e latter waa evidently not to comply with the
conditions of the government, but to impress
upon the mind of Governor Cnmtning snch a
t conviction of their strength and unbounded inm
fluence over their followers as would induce
||| him to modify those conditions. With this ob*
ject, aa he was to arrive on the Sabbath, he
m would no doubt be taken to the temple, where
10 a demonstration would of coarse be prepared to
* satisfy him of the attachment of the Mormon
h people to their creed and to the persona of their
w elders. This done, all that Brigbam desired to
* effect by the Governor's presence would be ao'
compliahed. That these speculations nre not
devoid of probability will be seen from the de*
clarmtion made by Young to Mr. Gilbert, that
"if the army would give the Mormona time they
? would leave, but if not he would send them to
e hell crom lota'*
What strengthens our idea that the Mormons
? I have determined to show fight unless thev can
r obtain their own term*. is the fact that they
^ are adopting the usual precaution of desperate
r men?of placing their women and children in
|f safety. Large conroya of the* hare been met
h on their way to the White River Mountain*, but
e there were no evidences that the male adult*
were soon to follow. It in the *u*pieiou* aspect
of this movement that ha* probably decided
General Johnston to continue the caution* but
f energetic tactic* that he ha* previously pare
sued. We regret that hi* civil colleague* have
( not acted with the name reserve and prudence.
e They appear to lie proceeding, not only without
p hi* co-operation, but without concurrence
r amongst themselves. Thus, whilst Govornor
o Camming ha* gone to Salt Lake City, to endeavor
to patch up matter* with Brigham Young, Dr.
0 Forney, the Superintendent of Indian Affairs.
r ha* started for Yellow Creek, to make some
Fort of treatv with the Indiana This doe* not

I - Should not the Mayor and hia squad be indicted
for advertising the Georgia lotteries?
They have certainly given to them a far wider
publicity than they have ever had before, or
I- which they could have obtained by any other
l- means, and the effect will doubtless be a great
i, increase in the sale of tickets and correspond
L ing profit to the lottery men. Hut before in.
n dieting the Mayor for advertising lotteries con
e trary to law, it might be well enongh to inquire
n whether, under the constitution of the United
,t States, any action of the kind roald be sustained.
The several State lotteries arc legal, and the
I publication of facta connected with legal busidcm
lu one State cannot be punished In a stater
State. We do not believe that the Legislature
of any State baa authority to make the publication
of the advertisement* of a lottery legalized
by another State a criminal offence, whether
the business itself is illegal in the State

RcpobmT?The taxpayers of the metropolis can
bring about a policy of reform and retrenchment
in our city government, it they will. But
to do the work they must strike at the roots of
the diseased tree. The democratic party, the
republican party, the Know Nothing
party, have all become too deeply corrupted
and demoralized by confederate
D[rviuw?u, ivgum WW IUUIM10 Ml uv irunvcu ?UJ
longer. A new system of government oaa only
be enforced through the medium of a new and
independent party, and oar taxpayers are the
men to organize such a party. They have the
wealth, they have the men, they have all the
needful resources for the organization of an allpowerful
party, and they can, if they will, organize
a party of this sort without the slightest
difficulty. Will nobody lead off in this
movement? Is it nothing to our taxpayers that
the city's collections from their pookets should
be cut down from ten millions to live or six millions
a year? What say the taxpayers? Even
a little meeting will put the ball in motion, and
any respectable citizen in such a case can at
least organize a little meeting to break the
ground. We hope to hear that some one of our
numerous taxpaying readers have taken the
hint, and is fully prepared to enter upon the
good work. Let him try it, and we will soon
have a powerful people's party in the field.
Chajujm sAinkr Gonk to Europk.?Charles
Sumner, the Massachusetts Senator, who
is somewhat distinguished for the vlo-,
lence of his anti-slavery opinions, has
sailed again for Europe, leaving only his
empty chair to represent half his State in the
Senate. Without doubt the empty chair will
be quite as eloquent in the cause as its owner.
At least it will beoivil, and refrain from using
violent language to stir up the chivalry of South
Carolina. How the people of Massachusetts
will like to be represented by an empty chair is
another matter.
