Norfolk, May 6. FROM RIO de JANEIRO. Mr. Carman, a gentleman who has come passenger in the brig Decatur, arrived in Hampton Roads on Saturday last from Rio de Janeiro, informs that the troops which had been previously removed by order of the Prince j Don Pedro) from Rio to Pi ior Grande, were compelled bv a like order of the Prince to a handon the latter post about the 25th February and embark for Lisbon: seven ships had been prepared for their transportation, which had sailed under convoy of a sloop of war. The Prince, however, found some difficulty in car rying his orders into effect, as a considerable opposition was manifested by both officers «and men to leave their post, until they should be relieved by other troops expected from Portu gal. The Prince, however, called to his aid a frigate and sloop of war, and with a land force of several thousand men drawn up in the rear of the barracks (for the garrison at Prior Grande could be considered nothing more than a barracks,) threatened to fire upon and put to death every person, amounting to about 1200, in the event of their not embarking the next morning. These measures had the desired effect—and at the time the Decatur left, every thing remained quiet and peaceable. The for eign troops, so long expected from Portugal, had not arrived, and Rio Janeiro remained without any foreign military force, or even a naval one, further than a frigate, before men tioned, which was at the disposal of the Prince. Don Pedro continued to support his popula rity with the people, and by a discreet and ju dicious course of proceeding had removed all those petty differences which had previously existed in certain sections of the country, and all parties appeared to be as warmlv attached to each other as they were to their Prince.

FROM HAVANA.

At a meeting of the half yearly Court of Proprietors of the Bank of England, on the 22d March, a dividend of five per cent! was declared. As the allegation had been frequently made and generally believed that the Bank had occasioned much o* the distress ot the country, by contracting its issues, on the resumption of specie pay ments,—a statement was made at the meeting, by which it appears, that the fact was the reverse. The issues of the BanK were larger in the year ending in March 1822. than in the preceding one, by nearly four millions sterling; and lar ger by 3,500,000/. sterling in the year ending in March, 1821, than in the year before. At the meeting, nothing was de termined in regard to the reduction ol dis count to 4 per cent. JVesy York, jV/aw 4. 'WALL STREET Since we turned broker which was 38 hours ago, the most surprising change has occourred in stocks. We left on Thurs day at 1001 U.
