At thit period the' rale or' discount is still low, being Si per cent, for the best bills. On the whole, the prospects in commercial ' affairs hare assumed a decidedly better appearance, and we consider that there are just grounds to expect that they will continue to improve. In France, commerce is at a complete stand. The wars and general commotion on the continent have not assumed a less alarm ing aspect. .' iii ' ... The wholo of that part of Europe which skirts tho Rhino and borders on France seems quite disorganized. In Saxony, a frightful incendiary insurrec- i lion seems to be going on, which ihe govern ment cannot succeed in putting down, v! In Alsace, a complete insurrection of the peasantry exists. , . .. 1 The Schleswig and Holstein duchies are at this moment the seat of open war. The , whole of the Prussian troops have now ad' ' vanced into the Danish territory. Tho artil lery was. to cross tho Eider on the 13th inst. A skirmish was reported to have taken place since, near . Eikenforde, in which the Danes were defeated, but, if true, it must have beeu an inconsiderable affair. In Prussia there seems a growing feeling that the Polish Prussian provinces should be relinquished, but the uncertainty which yet prevails respecting the movements of Russia, leave all thess questions, which virtually af fect the political existence of eastern Europe, in a state of abeyance. Ireland. ' The deplorable state of Ireland, apparently on the verge of a civil war, continues to oc cupy the attention of all classes. The differ ; ences between the Repealer?, headed by Mr. O'Connell, and the party led on by Mr. Mil' chill, becomes greater every day. The rent has fallen to 25, and it is evi- - dent that a numerical majority of the Irish people are in favor of outrageous measures. In the meantime tho people of every part of the country continue to supply themselves with arms. Great and influential bodies con tinue to pour in addresses to the Lord Lieu tenant expressive of thuir determination to support tha government but the train of discontent S79ms now to be laid S3 extensive ly, and with such mischevious effect-, that we doubt whether the whole weight of the ' government, with even the support of the O'Connells, will bs able to prevent some great explosion. It is true that tha oration of the Rev. Fa ther Kenyon at TemplaJerry, where lis ad dressed a largo meeting a few days ag?, and the letter of the Right Rev. J. Birmingham, are exceptions to the above both are full of treason to the powers that be, and must excite most pernicious and alarming consequences over all the misguided peasantry who heard tha former and tin latter. Mr. Birmingham has been called to order for his seditious epistle in a orushing letter by his superior, Bishop Kennedy, of Killalve. Fraace The CemmnnlU Simla ( Pari. Lamartine has proposed an alliance, offen sive and defensive, between tha French and Swiss Republics. ; On Sunday, the 10ih, Paris was the scene of an extraordinary commotion. A. M . Blan qui, enraged at the publication, by the author ity of tha Provisional Government, of some papers found at Guizot's, impeaching his po litical character, declared them to be forge ries, denounced Lamartine, Marrast, and th? moderate membors of the Provisional Gov ernment, and swore to overthrow it and es tablish a new one, from which all but the extreme radical members of Ilia existing , government were to be excluded. . It seems that a plot was actually formed to intimidate the Provisional Government, eject ,M. Lamartine, M. Marrast, and other moder ate members tharefrom, and form a new gov ernment, consisting of Ledru-Rollin, Cubet, Blanqui, Albert, Louis Blanc, Flocou, Arago, Raspail and Pierre le Roux. A meeting was accordingly got up at the Champs de Mars, on Sunday, with this ulterior object. Blan qui harrangued the mob. However, Lamar tiue and Marrast having got previous intelli gence of the plot, circumvented their designs The national guards, as well as the mobiles, were called out, and the critical state of things, which threatened a complete reign of error, furnished the government with a pretence to call in tho military, all classes now deeming the lately proscribed troops of i line a the defenders of order, Ufa and pro perty. A couple of regiments were brought ; into Paris. Cannon, for the first time since . the revolution, was placed before the Hotel de Ville. Of the national guard of Paris no : tbwer that 120,030 assembled on the quay and' boulevards, : joined by 40,000 of the hmlUv or suburbs; to these were added 20,. 000 of the guides Mobiles, and this body, bo ' Iween which and the national guard some jealousy had previously existed, fraternized . -a they passed each other, and their common differences were buried in oblivion. The peacs of Paris was thaa secured. - The usual exhibitions aud' speeches took place before the Hotel de Ville, and the cause . f the communists sank apparently intern- skniificance. A counter demonstration is-of ceo threatened. ' In the course of the tu- - mult at th Hotel de Ville, Cabel stigmatized : Lamartine as a-tneilor to the republic. ' La- j&Brfiu'a" withdrew, and, having consulted - with' kia colleagues, orders to arrest Cube! were ided in the. course of the evening. There can be uo -doubt that the whole affair , bild to strengthen materially the moder- farty n the Provisional Government. 'W "unlimited" circular, published in Paris, on Saturday last, In the name of M. Ledru-Rollin, contributed very greatly to in dispose th Parisians, td countenanoe the communists. Its violent tendency rendered the frame of M. Ledru-Rollin ,of unpopular that he wa compelled te disavow its authen ticity, and that it tad been, issaed from hi department Without hi knowledge and sanc tion, ft is evident that the sensible and mod erate men of the Prerisienal Government, have been secretly,' if ndt Openly, at variance' wirirttarKrema ' partT7OH tBffMHMay evening prevjou to. the Sunday s qemonStraf . t jpn, high words took place between M. Mar rast and M. Ledru-Rollin in the Council. M. Ledru-Rollin applied tho opprobrious term fdeht, of wward,' to IM.'Marrast, -whom'he accused of betraying his principles; M. Mar rast followed this up by a blow ; he struck M. Ledru-Rollin, and the other members in terfered and prevented further violence. In deed, it is openly asserted that the plot of Blanqui and Caber, on the Sunday, which so signally failed, was favored,' if not concerted by the extreme party in the Provisional Go vernment, which, if it be true, must lead to its speedy re-construction. . . , ' Thus stood matters on Monday. On that evening Blanqui harangued his club, inciting them, in the most violent language to arm aud Overthrow the Government." Ho invited the people to pay no more taxes, to raise the wages of the workmen, to five franks per day and compel the rich to minister to the wants of the sick and aged proletarians tho 1 new classical name for the "shirtless" Commissa ries were appointed to come to an under standing with a vast number of other clubs who advocate similar principles. It is now evident that the contest between tho moder ate clubs and the more violent antagonists has fairly ' commenced. Tho rappel was a gain beaten on the morning of Tuesday, the 18ih. Vast numbers of national guards were kept under arms during several hours, per haps with a view to weory them out, and the whole capital was kept in a continual state of terror and confusion. It was stated that both Blanqui and Cubet were arrested by order of the Government.' The report is put forth ac tively that all the members of the Provision al Government are now again on friendly terms, and that all differences have ceased. But whilst secret arrests of the communists are taking place in different parts of Paris, it is idle to count upon the permanence of tranquility of a single day. The procession took 8 hours in passing any given point in the line of march. The great est enthusiasm prevailed, and the most kindly dispositions were manifested towards the troops, the National Guards and the Provis ional Government. Up to the hour of post the greatest tran quility prevailed. There was no probability of that tranquility being interrupted, and it is considered that the demonstration will strengthen, immensely, tha power of the moderate members of the Provisional Govern ment. Austria. It was reported on Sunday evening that a courier had arrived from the seat of war in Italy, with intelligence of on immortal victo ry said to have been gained by Radetzky. Great apprehensions wero entertained in Vi enna in consequence or a meeting of opera tives, which was to have been held on Sun day last. The basis of the new Austrian constitution has just been published. It is as follows: All the provinces are constituted into one body, with the exception of Hungary, Cro tia, Sclavonia, Siebenberger and for the pre sent the Italian provinces. The division of tha Empire shall remain as it exists at pre sent. The person of the Emperor is sacred and inviolable. The Emperor lias full power over the land and sea forces, and the right of making war or peace. Treaties of every description with foreign powers can only be made with the sanction of the two Houses of Parliament. The at tribute of mercy and the right of bestowing rewards belong to the Emperor, but mercy cannot be extended .to the ministers without the sanction of the Parliament. The laws are to be administered publicly in open courts, by verbal pleadings, and tri als to be by jury. The judges will be ap pointed for life. All projects of laws are to be proposed as well as sanctioned by the Em peror. The Emperor will assemble the Par liament annually, and he must call them to gether at stated intervals. He has the right to prorogue and dissolve them. Freedom of religion, speech, the pre.?, petition and pub lic meetings, is granted to every citizen, sub ject to future laws. The Austrian government has ordered the Jesuits to quit Pintz. This step has given considerable satisfaction to the Roman Catho lie population. Aaetrlaa Italf . The advices from Milan announce that the Sardinian troop have gained some advanta ges over the Austrians at the bridge of Goito, and it was at first stated that 2000 Austrian prisoners had fallen into the hands of the Piedmontese. It appears, however, that this statement was greatly exaggerated, and that the number of prisoners really made did not exceed 400. The King of Sardinia, Charle Albert, ha established hi head quarters, since the last engagement, at Volta, on the right bank of the Mincio. A part of the army, however, oc cupies the left- bauk. Notwithstanding the hitherto rapid success of the Piedmontese army, it i yet far from certain whether Charles Albert will be able to drive the Auv trians from the strong position they have ta keu np on the line of the Adige. With the almost impregnable fortresses of Mantua and Verona on his line, Raditoky, with effective support, may offer a determined front to hi enemy; but if he should be driven from this point of vantage, and i compelled to ascend the Adige through the Tyrol, the whole of Lombardy may be deemed lost to Austria, nor could she, even by the advance of a sec ond army, hope to regain the lost provinces: But military opinions by no means tend to die believe that RadiUky will be so easily extruded.' .

The King of Naples has published a proc lamation declaring its adhesion to the unity of Italy, and invites his subjects in the two Sicilies to union and concord. ' Tuscany furnishes tho contingent force of 5000 men, who ore placed at the disposal of Charles Albert. By the latest accounts, an attack has been made upon Pescaiera by the King of Sardinia. The attack was made by the artillery, the garrison being expected to surrender. The fortress, however, proved too strong, aud after a harassing fire, which an noyed the garrison, who returned a well di rected fire, the King, after fruitlessly demand ing the garrison to surrender, was compelled to resume the position we have described.', The croats have set fire to the village of Cassel Neuva, containing two thousand in habitants. They formed a cordon around it, and the villagers were all burned to death, uttering the most appalling shrieks. Pramla. "' ' The Prussian Diet has been dissolved in an undignified manner. The labor question is the question of tho day ; and the work men debate it at clubs and street corners. Piece-work is proscribed short time and high wages enforced. The provinces on the Rhino are in an unquiet state, and the people have attempted to stop the navigation of tha river by steamboats. The prisoners at Co logne, rebelled, on the 1 1th, and killed one of the keepers with his own sword. The gnnrd were compelled to fire on them before they would disperse. At Posen, the Poles are in arms and have erected entrenchments. A battle was fought between Col. Lestock and tha Polish population of Trzemeszno. At Cracow, tho people demanded the dismissal of all German officials. Orrmany. It would be an endless task to ennmerate the causes and incident of the present dis turbances all over Germany. In Baden the people threatened to rise to prevent the 8th corps cf the Federal army entering the coun try. In Hesse-Cassel they were by the last account in open revolt. Everywhere the fermentation is extreme. Unhappily one of the most fertile causes of public discontent is self-supporting, for these disturbances produce a suspension of industry, and consequently want, which again gives rise to more social disturbance.'

At the sitting of the German, io Diet, on the report of Ihe committee on the affairs of Schleswig-Holstein being pre sented, that body had decided upon the fol lowing resolutions;!. That in case the Danish troops shall not cease hostilities, and evacuate tho Duchy of Schleswig, it will be necessary to compel them so to do, in order to protect tha right of Holstein, whose union with Si-hleswig must must be enforced by the confederation. 2. That the Diet being convinced that thay shall obtain tho surest guarantee of this union by the incorporation of Schleswig with the Germanic confedera tion, the Prussian Government be invited to offer its mediation to effect this object. 3. That tho Diet acknowledge the Provisional Government of Schleswig-Holstein, and that the former enforce its rights to tho Duchy, in the name of that country ; but that it shall first wait the mediation of the Prussian Go vernment. The latter shall protect the mem ben of the said Provisional Government and its adherents. From the North of Germany we have sad accounts of an incendiary insurrection in the kingdom of Saxony, which the Government have not as yet been able to put down. Dcaawrk aaa HaUlala. The accounts received from the contineut, day after day, tend more and more to com plicate the unfortunate event which have oc curred in Holstein and Sohlewig, with re gard to the misunderstanding at present ex isting between these duohie and their sover eign, the King of Denmark, a well a to threaten meat seriously the peace of Europe. The whole of the German confederation is compromised by the injudicious first act of the King of Prussia, and are called upon to take up arm against Denmark.

"I never see a young man seeking for of fice as a mean of support, without pity ; for poverty in old age is certain to be his destiny." The above is extracted from a letter writ ten to a friend by a distinguished Senator of the United State. He has risen to his present station purely by his own exertions, and it is the first office he has received from the people. The Americans have been accused of too high a veneration for the Almighty dollar. Be this as it may, there is another pursuit in which they are quite m zealous the pursuit of office. Any one who has been at Washington city at the opening of a new session of Congress or inaugeration of a President, could not but have remarked the numbers and rapaci ty of those who were in search of some official employment. Nor ia there a ne cessity for us to travel ao far ; even in our own State, one is astonished at the number of persons presenting themselves to the Jf o- ple, for their tufrrage, at each election A far greater number there are whose de Ire it a yet unexpressed, but whose eager inward longing for distinction of this kind i evident in theit action.

The great and good John Quincy Adams, who enjoyed the highest honors the partiality of the people could give, has often declared, "that if he had his life to live 'over, he would confine himself to his law-office in stead of following the troublesome life of a politician." LATER FROM MEXICO. NO HOPES OF PEACE! Return of Mr. Trist and General Cailualader. Wo have the following interesting intelli gence from the Picayune of the 30th ult The steamships Augusta and Virginia left Vera Cruz on Saturday, April 22il. The Au gusta came up to town, while the Virginia was obliged to come to anchor fifteen miles below the city. uen. laawauicr ana Mr. inat came over passengers on the Virginia, and will no doubt come up to town this morning. we understand Hint me impression was that the Court of Inquiry would not adjourn for three weeks, and that Gen. Scott would await its adjournment. The Star, of the 15ih says that he is in fine health. Tha burden of the editorial articles in tho Star is that there is yet no quorum of Con gress at Queretaro. It is obvious from the oiars reueraieu complaints tnat there is great fear lest no quorum should meet at all. We gather some miscellaneous intelligence from the Vera Cruz papers : ' A train arrived at Vera Cruz on the 17th ult., from the city of Mexico on the 7th. Gen. Cadwalader and Mr. Trist, framer of the treaty, accompanied tho train. On the road, near Passa la Vcgo, a Mexican reported to the commander of the escort that he had been robbed of some mules, and stated that the robbers were in the chapparel. Lieut. Hawkins dismounted ten of his men and started in search of tho ruffians, and shortly afterwards returned with them, having sur prised and taken them in the most admira ble manner. They are now in custoJy A grand banquet was given in Vera Cruz the evening of the 16ih inst.. by the French residents and others, in honor of the revolu tion in France. The Americans were to cel ebrate the same glorious event on the 2 2d inst. The Free American remains of opinion that there is little prospect of Peace. On the 19th its language is : "We announced, a few days ago, that we had conversed with a gentleman from Mex ico, who was of opinion that the members of Congress would not vote for the treaty, as ratified at Washington. We have since seen two letters from influential men, one at Que retaro and the other at Mexico, who coincide with the opinion of the gentleman in question Another letter says that should the members of Congress violate the constitution of Mexi co by ceding any part of the territory, the same members will have to ask the United States to leave a force of several thousand men to keep order iu tio Republic, The writer i of opir;ou that o won a the Ame rlcan troops will embark for the United States the Government will be overthrown, and new cause for war will be given to the Uni ted State by the turbulent people of this country." , We regret to learn that General Kearney has been seriously ill at Vera Cruz ; at the same time We rejoioe that he wa pronoun ced out of danger and eouvalescent'at last accounts, i ... j The State "of Mexico gives iu voice for Gen.

Now just so long as the People will tolerate the present exorbi tant rates of pay, this kind of Members will spin out Session and prevent anything being done. ' And the fault is not so much in their necessities, their covetousness or their shift lessness of the People who will not enforce the remedy. ' ; 1 be mileage is a still less excusable abom ination. Texas' sends hither two Senators and two Representatives, who receive in ad dition to their pay, some $2.5000 each every session for merely coming here and going away again, (I would sooner pay them twice the money to stay away) 810,000 in all for travelling expenses which are not actually 3 1,000. Arkansas will take $6,000 out of the Treasury this year merely for the travel of her Senators. When we come to have mem bers from Oregon and California, we shall have to negotiate a loan expressly to pay the mileage of tho members. Nobody pretends to justify itiix, arid yet it defies every effort to reform it. A member starts up from Bangor, and comes here in some two days and a half, paying some $25 and pocketing $250 clear profit. Coming from Galena or Chicago, or Natchez, or Li' lie Rock, he will clear from 75 to $150 per day, lounging on a steamboat and living like a prince, or takes thu cars at Auburn iu the morning, has a capital night's sleep on the North River, and awakes in New York, lr.iv ing in one day cleared over $120.
