W I hate now before Ql th" report of some dor.en sittins of the famous Comniittee ap pointed by the I lournf nf ('opimou to invoe tii;nt the condition o! the Briti-h i.rmy in the Crimen. Witnesses have hern examin ed of every rsak an I station. IV mi the Duke of Cambridge Jfow n, nut their telin1ony ik surprisingly antnimoue. All depnitment of the administration have In en paea in review, and nil have been found to he not only deficient, but scandalously so. The staff, the medical department, the purveyor's depattinent, ihe commmisaruit, the trans pot service, the hojttiytal oilntinisiration, the aanitiry nm! discipllnnry polii-e. the harbor police of Balukarp, have one and all been condemned without an uppOslBfj voice. MM aa every depnrimenl was it-elf. the full glories of the system were, however, (level- ' oped only by tho contact end cooperation of all. The regulation Were IB beautifully arranged that a soon as they came lo be pul in force, when the troops fust landed in Turkey, nobody knew where his nulhori'y began nor where it ended, nor to whom to apply for anything) and thus, from n w hole some fear ol responsibility, every i Jily shifted everything from bis own shoulders lo those of somebody else. Under this system, Ihe hospitals were scenes of infamous brutality. Indolent neglect did its worst upon the sick and Weunded on board the transport and alter their arrival. Tlie lucts revealed nro incredible; indeed Ibera was nothing more horrible in the retreat from Moscow. And yet, they actually happened at Scutari, Willi I in sight of Constantinople, n large cily, with all its resource in labor ami material com forts. Tbty happened, not on a hasty re j treat, with the Cossack nt the heels of the fugltivee and cutting of their suppiie.i, hut in the Course ol a partially successful cam paign, at a place sheltered from all hostile attack, nt the great central depot where Ureal Britain had heaped Bp her stores for the army. And the author ol these horrors nd abominations are no hard-hearted harbu rian. Theyare, every one of them, British gentlemen Of got d extraction, well educated, ami of mild, pbllanfhraplo.and rellgioui dis positions. In their individual capacity, thoy no doubt were ready and willing lo do any thing; in their official capacity, their duty was lo look cooly nnd with folded army upon all these iii!amies, conscious that tho case was not provided for in uny pari of her Majesty, regulations effecting themselves. Perish a thousand armies sooner than infringe UpoB her Majesty regulations! And Tantalus like, the soldier bad ta die within fight, ul- i most within reach of tho comforts which ' Would have saved their lives. Not n man on iho spot had the energy tu break through the net-work o! routine, to act upon hi own responsibility as Ihe neceaei- 'ties ou the case demanded, and iu the teeth of deregulations. The only parly who has 1 dared to do this is u woman , Miss Nightin gale. Having once nsc.i rta ined that the things wanted were in atoie, she is reported to have taken a handful ol stout fellows and to have actually committed a burglary upon the Queen's store-house.-! The old women iu authority at Constantinople mid Bfutert, fur from being capable of such daring, were cowards to idlfgrei we could scarcely rredit, were it not openly admitted by Ihemselve. One af them, Dr, Andrew Smith, for a ,ime chief of the hospitals, w as asked ii there were in Constantinople no fund, to buy, and no market to ritpply, many of the things wanted! "Oh, ye,iJ ho replied, ''hut, after fort$ years' routine, und drudgery at home, 1 as surr you I could Hardly for some months rrjUte the idea that I actually hud funds jda :ed ul my commandl" The very blackest descrlptiona of the state of matters which had been given in both newspaper end Parliamentary speeches, are fur o;itdone by th realily, as it now is bro'l before ua. Buiuo of the most glaring fea tures had been broached, but even these now receive u gloomier coloring. Although the picture it at yet far from cou ploto, we can I ee enough of It to judge of the whole. Ex I cepting the fcmalo nurses sent nut, there ii nut one redeeming fealure in It. One group i us b id and ua atupid as the other, and if the Committee, iu their report, have the conruge to sppak out according to evidence, they will I be embarrassed to find in the English lan I guege words strong enough Iu express then condemnation. In view of these disclosures it is impossi ble to repress a strong glow of indignation and contempt not only for the immediate ac tors, bi i abkve all for the Government which arranged the expedition, und which, with the lacts staring it in the lace, bad the impudence to declare they were mere fictions. Where, now, is lhat great Coalition of All iho Tal ents, that galaxy of statesmen with w hose advent the Golden Ago WBI to dawn upon England! Between Whig nnd Peelites, Rueaellitet and Palmercluniana, Irish men and Englishmen, Libera Conservatives and CeneerV&tiVC Liberals, they have been hucks tering and bargaining among themselves, und every man ihey have pul into place turns out ! to be an old woman or un unmitigated fool. These statesmen were so sure the machine they hud been m.inuging for thirty years would work admirably, that they did not ever send out u person invested with extruordina ry powers lor unforeseen c ircomstunce-; un forataeo circumtttncei. of course, could nev er occur under a well-regulated Government Subalterns by nature und by habit, thest British minister.'', suddenly placed iu a posi i tion ol Command, have achieved the utter di 'grace ol England, There i old Raglan, ul hi life a head'ofBce-clerk to Wellington! i man that m ver Wit permitted to iicl upon hn own responsibility; a man bred lo ua just ai he was bid, up to his liSth year; end this nuir is all uf u nudden appointed to leud an arm) against iht: enemy, and to decide everything at once and lor hiatielil And a pretty meet be 4at made of it.

Th'S very great decrease of Immigration to the United Stutes is un important fact. It i ppears I ro m llhoffiolHl reports thut ut tho chiel places Of debarkation for emigrant tho number arrived during the flrat quarter of ItSjD is less than hall the average of several preceding years. Should Ihe check which this gigantic movement ui population has experienced continue 10 operate' for u series of year, which there is reus ill to expo, t.tho morbid activity of'.our growth and expansion Will cense. The causes which have slaved this human tide are obvious- Irelutie' has been emptied upon our shores. That pro lific mother has no more children for the Rnda of the stranger. The war in the East bus occasioned u demand for the material ol wbieb armies are made, which more than ab sorbs ull the surplus ol Western aud Central Europe. It has Inoreeied the wages of labor by reducing the number ol laborers, and ad ded lo tho consumers ol Ichor's products. The scarcity and high price ol provisions in the United Slates is uuotlur cause ol the decline of immigration Piovisions can hard ly be more difficult lo obtain in uny part of Europe than ut the present time in '.his coun I Hey. We have almust reached fumiue ri ces. Two've dollars a barrel for Hour, two dollars u bushel tor potatoes, and olio dollar mid twenty cents u hu.hcl for Indian corn, ' un v cent a pound for good butter, and one dollar a pair for small chickens, aud thirty I dollars a ton lor bay ure rates for tho neces- surie of life, which the poor cannot pay, and j which rapidly consume the substance of I tlMBt blessed w ith inouVr.it'.' im uuies.

The cousc'iiuc nccs uf uur short crops aud of thu Eastern war will therefore continue at t check upon immigration for ul least two yer. Tha actual eaten, af the agietiag aearcity snd the means ol arresting its eonseipience constitute BO impi rlnnl subject of inquiry. There i no longer any see tenable doubt that I last year was a season of short crop for al most every edible staple, taking the country let large. All sneers against paiiic-mukcrs I and ftmltfB croakers have been answered by toe general distress, the diminished receipts of provisions, and iho present prices- The I foil eil'ect of the general failure of crops haw I not yet been felt, bee ansa n large surplus of graftni and meats. ihe products ol other years, remained in the hands of fartuere and dealers. t Rhnsstii" iN3Bn sh.'ll II..W at ib'' i ' .: sen now begun n thing to cat except What I ah II havl leen puifiili d during that seston. 1 Wo ( an; ul My H p-'ll n heavy crop of wheat, lo calise, i inorig other reasons, the terrible drm edit 1 1 l-l year . u tided ul through tho 'autumn, s llutl great number nl farmer did Hot sow tli. ir fields with wheat at all.
