ARRIVAL OF THE A A M E ll I C A X TWO WEEKS LATER FROM EfROPE. Sine trt sailing of tho last steamer par liament has mot. the Queen' speech beerrde livered, end in some degree the main features of the proposed policy of minister has been dovefopod. Both honses of parliament were opened by proxy on the 3 1st nit., w hen the speech from tho throno was delivered by the Lord" Chan' et?llor. Wo subjoin a summary of the document After lamenting the death of lh late Queen Downjjer, ami stating in the usual terms that we are at peaeo with all foreign powers. It says on the sttbj-cl of the Turko Rt:s sian question what follows in the course of the Austrian war, differences of a serious character arose between Austria and Russia on the one hand, and tho Sublime Porta on the other, in regard to tho treatment of the considerable number of persons who, after the termination of the civil war in Hungary, had taken refuse in the Turkish territory, explanations which took placo between the Turkish and Imperial Porte have fortunately removed any danger to the peace of Europe which have arison out of the differences. Her majesty havinc been appealed to on this occasion by the sultan, united her efl'oits to those of the government of France, to which similar appeal had been made, in order to assist, by the employment of her pood ofii. ces, in effecting an amicablo settlement of those difficulties in a manner consistent with the dignity and independence of the Porte. Tho reyal speech then rocs on to state fhat the governments of America and Swc. Jon hid evinced their desire to co-operate with Great Britain on the subject of the re peal ol ths navigation laws, and after allud ing to some local topics, it then gives a death blow to the advocates of monopoly of the ar ticles of food as follows: "Hor majesty has great satisfaction in con gtatulating you on llv3 improved condition of commerce and manufactures. It is with ro tjret that her majesty has observed the com plaints which, in many parts of tho kingdom, have proceeded from the owners and occu piers of land. Iler.majesiy generally la ments that any portion of her subjects should bo suffering distress, but it is a source of sin cere gratification to her majesty to witness the increased enjoyment of tho comforts and necessaries of life which cheapness and plen ty have bestowed upon a great body of her people and country." The chief measures recommended from lha throne are in referenco to Ireland, and relate to the improvement of the Tarty Pro vision Act and the laws regulating tho rcla tion between landlord and tenant. 'In conclusion, her majesty hopes und be lieves that by combining liberty with order by pres?rviug what is valuable and amend ing what is defective, the legislature jvill ustain the public institutions as the abode . and the shelter of a free and happy people." The ministers have not yet avowed the line of policy they niran to pursue in regard to the North American colonies, but it is pretty well understood that should those colo nies desire either to become independent stales, or to annex themselves to the United Stales of America, that no opposition will bo offered by Great Britain to their so doing. This feeling is grounded upon the fact that fhcn colonies were self-supporting ones. Out of the most astonnding projects of the go, throwing tho American prospectus for a submarine telegraph from New York to the Isle of Wight, into the shade, has just been announced in London the formation of a railway from Calais to Mooltan, in the midst of India, distance 3,803 miles, cost 36,000, 000.

Serious Disturbances in Paris. On and since Monday, Paris has been in a s'.attf of siege in consequence of a serips of disturbances created by the mob of Rue St. Martin anil St. Antoinc. Tho police authori ties catne to cut down certain of the trees of liberty, planted duiing.the revolution. Fiom fuels which, by tho way, are rather conflict ing, it would appear that when the order for the ilcsirnction of these last emblems of the liberty cf the French people were i.'sued, large crowds gathered around and decorated them with varioussymbols of liberty, and that the police acting under order from the Executive, procoedaj to cut them down. The police were resisted on Monday fore noon, and drawing back, were dispersed by thu people ; but a strong body of military ad vancing at this moment, the mob was put to flight, with the loss of several wounded, while the troops were hardly molested. Gen. Lamoriuieira was hooted at in all di rections by lha mob, but no other offence . was offered him.

The rapid wasting away of the bank in front of the Borough and between it and the Northumberland bridge, calls for.Jm mediate Action. Eafch succeeding spring commits new havoc upon it, and in a. few years that beautiful promenade will be to tally, rieitrbyed. Not only does Jhe beauty of our Thorough suffer, but its safety is in daf)gcrr"irTs bum sho'rninie irteVMrof the three graceful poplars that threw their grateful shade over our boyhood sports, was carried away, and already the undermining current wash eTt fie soil from the roots' of its companions. . Only last year the old ches nut tree, that ancient landmark of .he Bo rough, yielded to the torrent that sapped its foundation, and now lies prostrate upon the ground it so long sheltered. We are pained to see these old friends rapidly departing. They are hallowed to us by many dear asso ciations. How often have we played in childhood beneath its shade, gathered the brown nuts from its bursting burrs, and bathed in the limpid stream beneath it! The long row of forests trees, too, which graced the bank as far up as Fort Augusta, have one after another hein carried away by the floods, and the soil that yielded them nour ishment has been washed away by the same irresistahle force, until nought remains to mark the spot upon which they grew. It is shameful that his work of destruc tion should be suffered to go on year after year, and no effort be made to stay its pro gress. The Shamokin dam, erected by the Commonwealth, is the cause of the evil, and the legislature ought, . by every principle of justice and honor, to afford us protection. Private property, too, suffers; for before another year the road along the rivermust be re-located. It is now scarcely wHjle enough for the passage of vehicles. Some thing must be done immediately. Our com fort and safety requires it. The whole bank from the dam to the bridge should be rip-rapped, or some other method devised to secure it. The legislature ought to be memorialized, on the subject, now. disinio. The present session of Congress has been probably, the most unprofitable and disor derly that ever occupied our Capitol. From the first moment it met until now, some of its members have used the most strenuous efforts to prevent any thing like legislation, and by their outrageous conduct' and trea sonable sentiments, have not only poluted the sacred place they fill, but brought dis credit and disgrace, as well upon the Re public as the districts they represent. They have done all they can do, to lower the American people in the eyes of the rest of the world. Our citizens blush with shame at proceedings in that once honorable body, that the Red Republicans of France would disown. Our Union is too firmly established, too deeply rooted in the patriotism of the peo ple, to be shaken by the feeble breath of dis organising demagogues. However loudly they may bluster, and fiercely hurl about bloodshed and civil war, there is no real danger. The people have too long enjoyed the blessings of union and harmony, to ruin their prosperity by following the lead of fanatics into disunion and discord. The Hotspurs of North and South themselves, have not the most remote idea of dissolving the Union. And least of all would the South be willing to take a step that must involve her utter destruction. The slaves are more than three to one of the whites, and the secession of the South from us, would be the signal for the blacks to rise and massacre their masters. It is only through fear of the whites in the North that the slaves are kept in subjection, and were that removed by a disolution of the ties that bind us to protect our brethren of the South, con sequences more frightful and blasting than the world ever witnessed would ensue. The whole of our slave country would be the scene outrage, bloodshed and desolation. The tragedy of the French West Indies would be re-acted there. Nothing could save them from utter annihiliation. But in spite of the menaces daily hurled forth by the representatives of Southern chivalry, there is no danger of dissolution- Their speeches are idle vaporing and will end as they began, in nothing. They do not utter the sentiments of their constitu. ents. The Southern press is filled with denunciations ol the course of these hot- brained madmen. The people of the South areas devotedly attached to the Union as we are. They will not consent to, much less advocate, ils dissolution. - There are still men enough in our halls at Washington upon who wisdom and patriotism the peo ple can depend to shield them from the fearful ruin, in which the, present course of affairs threatens to envolve the county. It is a crisis like the present which will show to the world the firmness of the tie that binds our Union. " The spirit of com promise, which has a! ways actuated our cit izens when antagonistic sectional interests threatened to disturb our harmony, is now ready to spread its healing wings over the wound. That spirit which guided ours rulers ever since we became a nation, will not de sert us now. Governed by its influence, we need never fear that our glorious pro gress shall be stayed by the blasting effects of disunion. We give the subjoined extract from pa pers published in the South, to show the feelings of the people in that quarter : , "If the slavery question were settled this very day, the Hotspurs of Sooth Carolina would ingeniously discover tome other source of grievance, over which they would work themselves frantic, and be ready again with their menaoes of disunion.-- They are eter. nal grumblers, and for the last twenty years ve have never known them otherwise ' "The heady and factious spirits who prate so glibly of disunion' might profitably ponder over the prespeeQ' in the event of the realisa tion of their anticipations. They might find ft less agreeable when conned by sober rea son, than w hen viewed through the fallacious coloring of a' heated imagination' ','For oai own part, we do not believe in the possibility of disnnion ; but, if wo did, t we should look to the future as an epoch prcgiant with evils more dire than war, pestilence and famine.' ; . , N.O. Bee. , The Gcorgid TFAt'g reasons thus, forcibly: The south never would have consented for the north to interfere in the domestic regula tions of California, had they (the Califor nians) seen fit to tolerate slavery by their constitution; and now, since they have seen fit to exclude it, the same principle ought to quiet all objections from the south. If one portion of the states has no right to interfere, neither has the other; and, r.s we would not yield the right to the north, we should net claim it ourselves.' , "" The Forsyth (Ga ) Bee, o( the 5th inst. says that a call for a public disunion meeting there had proved a "humiliating failure !'' "No interest was manifested by anyone, and the whole affair went by default." Than North Carolina there is no more loyal state in the union. One of her organs, the Hillsborough Register, says: Disunion is no remedy for any evil, present or prospective, real or imaginary.' Our motto then is: "The Union, the Constitution and the Laws." Under this banner we trust we shall ever be able to maintain our rights; while it floats over us our liberties will never be in danger. 'The Union must be preserved." lL7T Montocr County.

It is perfectly certain that a treaty has been made here, between Sir Henry L. Bul wer and the Government of the United States respecting the Nicatagua question. A friend on whom reliance can be placed, has seen the document with all the official signatures attached.

It also provides that the canal shall be neutral and open for the investments as well as the transit trade ef all Nations under suitable regulation. The character of the treaty, it is thought, is highly creditable lo the liberality of the respective Governments, and cannot fail to prove satisfactory to tho people of both coun tries.

Horrible Murdesof a Wire and Child. A correspondent of the Eddyvill Telegraph, writing from Marion, Crittenden county, Ky., gives an account of two horrible murders, committed in that vicinity on the 20ih ult. by a fiend in human form, named Wm. T. VYallingford, on his wife and child She had been confined but a few days, when he drag ged her from her bed and stamped her to death.' The infant he starved to death, not allowing it to be nursed by its mother or any one else from the time it was born. The writer says thpse facts were elicited from the 'coroner's' inquest. The monster made his escape. He was pursued to a wood yard on the Ohio river, where he in safety took a boat op the river. The number ef deaths fjom cholera among the immigianls on Ward's Island, during the past week, is stated to be eighteen, and two of them are said to have occurred so lately as Thursday. The N. Y.

Since that time fifty-five have gone into a collapse, of whioh forty-five terminated in death This extraordinary la tality is accounted for by the fuel, (hat by far the larger proportion were persons who were previously much debilitated by Jwease or privation.

Mr. Livaudais, the late State Treasurer of Louisiana, attempted to commit suicide by cutting his throat with a razor, on the 12th instant at Baton Rouge. His accounts had been examined and found to be correct, and it is supposed that disappointment in political ambition induced the commission of the rash act.
