The annexation of Texas to the United stales
lias not at all excited surprise.
Comufik l.u.. Serious fears ofa tailor of the
li.iivcst now begin to ho felt. The weather has
been fur fiom favorable for the harvest. The
supply of giain at present in the country is very
limited, and a failure of the oniing crop would
be a serions inconvenience. The stock of Uni
ted States flour in Liverpool, under lock, con
sists of!n,r?S bbls. ; of which about 1 1,(11)0 are
sweet, the remainder sour ; should the new
w heat want help, this article, owing to the low
coarse quality ofthe Paltic wheat, will be of
unusual virtue, as it will give strength and color
1 so.
li!i.iA'Mr:NTAnv. The last few dayshavebecn
sinfnrtiuiutety rife in railway accidents. Mis
fortunes, it is said, seldom com singly, nnd the
ealamitico c.f locomotive transit strengthen the
lonectness of the axiom. I.oid Palmefston
brought the subject before (he House of Com
mons, and coupled it, strancly enough, with a
strong -condemnatory peroration on the defence
less stale of our seaboard. With regard to tia
velling by rail, the PrcmieT threatened, unless
the directors used a keener supervision over
their servants, to rase them of the duty, and
tiansfer it to the hands of the Kxecutive Govern
ment a threat which will probably WMrk a
speedy ami permanent cure. On the subject of
national protection, he evinced less apprehension
and seemed to chide the fears of his assailant .
War seems remote, but the best mode of keep
ing it so. is to be prepared for it at all times.
Cupidity is often excited by contrary policy. 1
The present is the age of mechanical wonder,
and in deciding the fate of nations by physical
condui t, the engineer will play as prominent a
part hereafter, as the field marshal ha done in
times gone by. It is this consciousness of li
ving under circumstances so different from our
fathers, that has probably insured Lord Palmer
ston with his patriotic misgivings.
Mr. Ficlden, one of the members from Oldham
a large manufacturer, and a gentleman ol ex
treme political opinions showed in an able
speech, the other night, how grir.ilingly oppres
sive the income tax can be made, even in the
case of an obstreperous member of Parliament.
Mr. Tieldin's wealth and credit enabled him to
make a statement which would have been the ru
in of a smaller man that this business, far from
yielding a profit, entailed an actual loss. The
commissioners treated his assertion, even his
oath, with indifference. They first assessed his
business as producing CO 1,01)0 profit, and then, on
appeal, to ll.O0n for refusing to pay the tax
on which the officers ofthe C.'overnmeut distrain
ed on his goods ! Put although he made out his
ease, he obtained no redress. He merely succee
ded in proving what every one knew to be a fact.
that many are obliged to pay this most inqui
sitorial and oppressive tax as the caprice of the
commissioner choose to levy it, from the fear of
worse consequences that of revealing their
pecuniary nakedness.
The Slave-trade Treaty Pill, which seeks to

C.i.vstantin-oi-i.f, July 17.
Cot.i.iio or run Sti-aiisuics .jus of one
nintlrrrf nnd tfiir'i-!re live On the night ofthe
1 1 lb instant, on the lilack Sea, about fnitv miles
cast ofthe P.osphnrus, a most dreadful catastro
phe took place. Two Turkish steamships, the
one ruining from, the other going to Trcbizoud
came into u sudden collision, uud one of them
went down with the greater juit of the crew and
The vessels were Scutari commanded by Mr.
Dubbins, and the Me.ljehiai Tidjahret, comman
ded by Mr. Lambert.
The commander of each vessel was perfectly
aware of the approach of the other full twenty
minutes before the fearful event happened, and
there was apparently no danger. Put Captain
Lambert, fiiiicyinj he had nil Austrian vessel be
fore him, to obey u rule ofthe Austrian service
put his helm u st.n board, whilst the commander
of the Seutaii, lull. .wing the rule of the Knglish
service, put his helm a port. Thus the former
ran right under the hows ol the latter, and the
collision was inevitable. If both commanders
had put iheir helms a port, no accident, 1 am in
loruii'd by naval men, could possibly have hap-
peiied. Though it w as a moonlight night, there j
was a good deal of fog, so that the mistake was
not discovered till it was iinHssible to avoid its, j
ten ible consequence. The Mi-jehrai was struck
between the fore rigging and the engine. The :
shock was tremendous. There was a great mini- '
ber of passengen onboard both ofthe vessels,
chiefly Tuiks and Italian!'., and a scene iiulesen- j
liable ol" dismay and confusion arose. At first it y
was not known which of the steamers hail recei
ved fatal damage. As the Scutari is an old ship,
uud greatly out of repair, it was thought she must
have sufficied most, but the contrary piovedtobe
the case. Whilst this was in doubt, however,
her commander proposed that the vessels should
bu lathed together, or that oue should be taken
in tuw by the other, in order that, if either of
them thnuld he found to be unscuw ul thy, or in
a ktutd of wreck, the sound vessel might be able

The vessels parted; the Medjehrai Tidjahret
dropped about a mile astern, and in the course of
less than a rpiaitcr of an hour it was found she
was sinking rapidly. The fVntari which had got
but slight damage, then went to her help, but it
was too late. Very few , comparatively, could
be saved.
About seventy, however, by swimming, and
clinging to spats, reached the Scutari, where they
clustered round the paddle-boxes until they were
taken in. Captain Lambert and an engineer weic
picked up by a boat of the Scutari. All the rest
one hundred and t'liity-five souls, perished.
Their agony wus a short one, but it was terrific.
As the Scutari approached the wreck she keel-
ed over, (the people on the deck, like w ild mani- j
acs were visible in moonlight) and as the sea i

at Washington, got 'Tip by some of tire young
