By the arrivnl of the papers, brought bv the Europn, wo ore put in possession | of a noble letter from Kossuth to Lord I Pal nerston appealing to himJn the sad dilemma in which lu> and his companions ! me placed. The Sultan gave tjie refugee's protection, but now, it appears, makes ?be dishonorable proposition that tbo price of bis protection must be the itband nineat of their faith and religion. We trust that the succor so promptly ; granted by Iingland, and its apparei.I en- ; dorsemcni by the Republic of France, may have its eflcct Christendom ought not, cannot submit to such an outrage.? There arc some eloquent glorious pas sagos in tlx appeal of Kossuth, but our limits will not permit moio than the few bri c oxtrncts below:?Carolinian. "A Iresh letter from his majesty the Czar arrived in Constantinople, and its consequence was tho suggestion sent to j ns by an express messenger the Turk ish Government, that tho Poles aud Hun- i garians, and in particular myself, Count C.u imir Bathlany, Minister of Foreign , Attain* of Hungary under my Govern- i ment, and the GcnoralsMessaros nnd Pe- i rczel ( ill present here,) would be sur- j rendered unless \> e chose to abjure the j faith of our forefathers in the religion of i O I Christ and become A/ussclmans.

Some, of thft New York and other iXH UHTii papers strongly insist upon the necessity of a change of the Cabinet. The New York Tribune remarks, significantly, in reference to the dissatisfaction of the wliigs, that, "to Ray that Gon. Taylor does not know when he is ill served, or dare not apply the obvious remedy, is to charge him w .ih gross incapacity and pusillanimity." But the truth is, it is well known here. that. Gen.

J.UUIV IS ll(?t the slightest reason to believe thai Gon. Taylor is dissatisfied with any one of his Cabinet, or that he will request, them to go out as n unit, or otherwise. The Tribune must, therefore, condemn Yun for not knowing when he is ill served. The whigs do not pretend, however, to find much fault with the Cabinet, except on the score of the distribution of oftlcers, Some of the Northern papers scout the idea that tho whigs will, in any contingency, go for Mr. Holme.-- for Speaker, on account of his being a 7'aylor democrat. The Tribune savs th.it Mr. Win. throp's chance will >e the best?whereby it means that Mr, Winthrop is their choice. Every one knows that Mr, Winthrop, however great his merits, cannot, with a majority of five democrats against him, and with live free soil whigs against liim, be dccted. The game is to bring the Northern whigs, and the Northern democrats also, to the support of a freesoil Speaker?either I'rcston King or T*aa/: ?* ?i " T.?.

Here lie wu.. ussassinated by tlie Indiana, ft is further sta- 1 ted that Pat, with two hundred whites, and having a large quantity of specie, was march in or to place himself at the dis posnl of the Yucntcco Government anil to implore its pardon. The death of this celebrated chieftain was the cause of much rejoicing among the Indians, who have appointed the following to constitute their executive Government. I/onifacio Novclo, Venaneio Pec and Flora li no 61mm, Bonifacio hits ordered all tlu; chiefs in the neighborhood of Bacalar to unite fur the attack of thotown of Santa Elena.

Those papers contain the usual accounts of insignificant skirmishes between tho Yucatecoes ami the Indians, in which the latter are said a 1 ways to have been worsted. The death of Pat and the discord among the Indian chiefs, however, gives a better colouring to the Yi ateco cause than it has borne for some time.
