A Tho army is very badly paid the privates ate obliged shift Lor them Islrea a Well As they con. They generally understand rom Craft or other and Are frequently eff Gnu in husbandry. Every province has Louis lands which Are either cultivated by the military or let for their own advantage. The most propitious time however for these heroes is when they Are on actual service.

The Caledonia arrived at Liverpool yesterday in a a Sage 11 Days from Halifax hut of the a Nielli gence though Hitler is not considered materially different in character from the preceding accounts a the political relations of Europe and particularly of France from the governing business of the present tinier it is will regret that i inform you that the expected making of the chamber has been postponed from the 28tb of the present the 5th of the ensuing month consequently the result of this import nut meeting cannot even reach you by the next so want ship in the Halifax and Boston line. In the mean time the Cittato of affairs in France remains peaceable appearance towards foreign nations the Altiera in administration having been dissolved and a new government being in the act of being fur mid by Marshall Soult with whom is Mons. Guizot who Lins Lieen recalled for the purpose from his embassy the English court. How far this government will be enabled stand is ground in the chamber is beyond the judgment of on person this Side of the channels but from former experience it in inferred that the chamber will lie against the republicans Tho terror of whom los taken precedence of Mehemet All. In the Eye of the people of property in France. As Mons. Thiers is equally with the court opposed the Republican Narv. It is generally believed that neither himself nor his friends in the extreme left will vote against the administration of marshal a my Ltd All parties Bei expected a Quot in it court for the present no nine the masses by whom they have found items Elvce lobe in dimmer of being suddenly a wallowed up. In the midst of other difficulties it no Penis that the lie Seth of the King is rapidly giving Way old age anxiety and the terrors of the Queen since Ibe last attempted assassination of his majesty lev aug led very serious indications of Abdiu Wiig the Tirone offered the above View of the general appearance of France lest any a Criden should prevent the arrival of your correspondence from fan. I proceed inform you of Tho state of English monetary and mercantile affairs. Since your let accounts country business has Wen extremely Dull Lor though Ibe directory of the Bank of England have not further advanced the rate of interest the most rigorous measures have been adopted it the provincial Banks particularly at the Liverpool Branch of the Bank of England where discounts Piave been supplied a it it sparingly that tent i As been created in the Trade of the manufacturing districts and Good have fallen in value near a a our cent in Manchester during the last ten Days. The prevailing opinion amongst the capitalist us London in. That Money is the Best of All properties it this time and thai it is not prudent venture in bust up a in the slightest degree speculative until More new be ascertained of the True prospects of european political affairs. The English fund 3 per cent Only remains Suluki Kiuly firm at Hui 7-3, but never was there less business going Forward in shares or in any of the foreign funds. American securities partake of the general san inn Tina the transactions on the most limited scale and in several Days nothing whatever is known have occurred. The uncertainly in which some of the Holder of Illinois Bond find themselves in consequence of the proceedings of the commissioner of that state against or de infield and the uncertainty that that portion of the state debt will be required when due. Has added the get Terai disinclination Purchase the stocks of the United slates. The a hates of the Bank have been opened Day freely at d14. Although the Caledonia has brought the must ninth Educ accounts of the certainty of the resumption of Cash payments at the appointed time. The holders of the Stock of the Bank of the United stale were at first considerably alarmed by the republication in the London journal of the strange and truly artful and unprincipled fabrication which arrived if the new York Herald by the great. Wes turn steam ship of the dissatisfaction and separation of or. Jaidon and of a new Agency in London of which that gentleman was be the conductor in chief All of which Are pronounced at the Agency o he Mere of the most marked and unqualified kind. The oppressed condition of the Money Market renders Uncertain the prospects of business and the value of american Cotton at Liverpool and of East India Cotton in London has been declining since your Lam accounts. Tire Public sales of Cotton have beet Small in London but rather urge a ales of Rice have taken place 3300 bags of Bengal Good and Fine White at 13� 6d a 14� 6d per cwt. Carolina Rica has been told at 34 a 3ft� per cwt. Duty paid. Tho value of wheat and foreign floor is rather improving but that of Barley and Oats is lower in a corresponding degree. The average value of wheat was 62 per Quarter on Tho last Day of declaration and the duty is 23s. 8d. Per Quarter and 14s. 3d per Quarter on n barrel of foreign flour of 1�o6 weight. Tho Prospect continues be that wheat and flour will Advance much higher Price in the Spring of the coming vent is the crop of wheat is undoubtedly Small Anil yet the Quality unusually Fine.

They sit uneasy under the executive nut Bority.

Esp rest. From the new York Ohio rear. The profane officer. Shortly after fhe termination of the revolutionary War or. John Rogers was on his Way from Philadelphia new York in one of the Large stage Wagon at that time it use. It was filled with passengers of various Anne frnnces and characters among the number was a Middle aged Man of portly person who rendered himself conspicuous by his jocular conversation. Inte larded with frequent and horrid the loquacious gentle raft occupied one of the front a Oats while the Pood old do Etna sat in the fear but a till so near that his ears were constantly filled and his heart pained by the horrid sound of oaths sad Asho had Seldom. If Ever been obliged hear before. Turning general c., who sat next him the doctor inquired with , a who is that voluble and profane gentleman Quot Quot that is Captain late of Theu. 8. Army a was the reply a indeed Quot said the doctor Quot i must take an Opportunity of speaking him on the subject of his Quot you had better not said the general a Quot lie is a rough Many quite a hard character and May Quot turn again and rend Quot i must venture that rejoined the doctor and Pray fur Wisdom direct me but i cannot think of sitting still and silently hearing such a torrent of profanity without an attempt suppress set orly afterwards they arrived at a stage House where hey were the doctor improved the first Opportunity of addressing Tho Captain under Circle instances and in a manner that would not wound his . As soon As they were none the following conversation ensued. A if i am rightly in Formor snid the doctor Quot this is Captain a Eye sir at your service Quot was Tom reply with a military Nir. Quot a no re lotion colonel . Formerly of e Quot Quot i am his son Quot replied the Captain. Quot indeed a said the doctor Quot i have often been hospitably entertained your father a House in my Jou Mies during the revolutionary War. Pray sir How is your Mother a she has been Dud More thin a a a Laid Tho doctor a she has at last reached her heavenly Home and your father. Is he yet alive a a yes sir. And in a i am Happy hear it a please present my kind regard him and Tell him if it a Hall be the will of Providence that we arc never More meet in this dying world. I Trust we shall meet in a better world never More part. After a Short and solemn pause the doctor resumed a capt. T., i Trust you Are a gentleman a certainly air a snid the Captain somewhat startled at the interrogatory a every american officer is a a that is As it should be a said the doctor a a Well then.

Now sir i am sorry say though Vou did not mean do so you have by your profane language. Inflicted a great Deal of pain on in self and probably on some other of your fellow inv i not Hope then Thal you will do me the favor 10 refrain from profane language while we Are necessarily associated in a Public conveyance a such Quot Atlis cannot possibly do you any Good and they will be very in moving me and the doctor ceased and the Captain very promptly replied a a sir i pledge my Honor i will not inti go myself in another oath while Are a i thank you Captain for your said the doctor Takin him cordially by the hand Quot a Hall 1 have the pleasure of a Glass of wine with you sir a a with All my heart a said the Captain. The wine was ordered and drank when they separated and the Captain with evident satisfaction related the foregoing conversation Gen c., and in the conclusion remarked that the doctor was not Only a christain but a real , and if All Christa ins were like him he verily believed lie would become one himself. After they had dined they proceeded on their journey and the cup Diin was faithful his Promise. Not another oath proceeded from his lips and they parted with reciprocal civilities and kind feelings. It is that in these Days of in total ism Somo of the friends of the Temperance cause May be shocked at the idea of a doctor of divinity inviting a profane military Man take wine with him at a Public inn but nil who had the happiness of knowing or.
