3 , 6 ., _Xewtows , _Mostgomebtshibb . _—_ _"W e are much flattered at the notion of the land plan making him alter Ins intention of going to America , and preferring home when the market is open for him , "We give the foUowing as the information he seeks . The price of a two acre share is £ 2 10 s ., and 2 s . 4 d . for card , rules , and expenses ; the price of a three acre share is £ 3 155 . and 3 s . 4 d . for expenses ; the price of a four acre share is £ 5 and 4 s . 4 d . expenses . The thing given is two acres of land worth £ 3710 s ., a cottage that cost £ 30 , and £ 15 capital for ever , for £ 5 a-year , and S per cent , charged upon the additional price of land , or the
additional pric # of building ; £ 7 10 s . a- ; ear for three acres of land of the same quality , a house that costs £ 15 , and £ 2210 s . capital ; and £ 10 a-year f _» r four acres of land of like quality , a house that cost £ 60 , and £ 30 capital . The profits of the society to go to the reduction of the rent or to the purchase of the land for the occupants . K . Radford , Manchester . —Mr . Radford ' s letter did not reach Mr . O'Connor until it ivas too late to answer it , as he was oat of town . Public Smmt . —We give the following letter just as it came , and desire all to go and do likewise : —
Sunday morning . Dear Sib , —I hare this moment read your letter , and before taking _bteakfast , I conceived it to be my bounden duty to enclose you my small mite ( Ss . ) towards defraying the late expenses , and for the purpose of carrying on the war , and at the same time to tender yon my thanks as an individual , and as a member of the Chartist body , for yonr generosity in advancing money oa our hshalt , As soon as our small body meet , 1 shall endeavour to bring it hefore them , hut lite roost of onr friends , they are ground to the dust by the class to which I hare the honour to belong . " Dear sir , 1 remain , y « nrs truly , _Bosebt Kipd . Feargus O'Connor , Esq . _Joasi "Waed , _Bassslet . —Thanks for his honest letter . _TVe never entertained the slightest doubt of tbe patriot
ism of the Barnsley men . We rgoice to hear of their nervous anxiety relative to our dear friend and brother Chartist , O'Higgins , and beg to assure them , that although not at all nervous , we are not the less anxious . J . L ., _Bcbhiet . —Tes . The amount allowed for building a cottage on a four-acre farm , would more than cover the expense « f oue built upoa Sir . O'Connor ' s plan _. Ma . O'Cossob _' s promised work upon agriculture will be bound by itself , and will contain explanations of the former work , as well on a farming directory for the instruction of small farmers . Vit are induced to give this notice , because some parries hare made application to know if thuy shall defer purchasing the work until completed . The work on Small Farms IS NOW
COMPLETED . Pickvakce _, Bowos . — "We thank him for the newspaper , the finding of the inquest was published in last week ' s Star , and the admirable reply to the Jackass who wrote npon the land project , being confined to the points in Mr . Ass's letter , sad not wishing to waste our apace upon such rubbish , the answer to it would be out of place . 2 . Z . —If he should be balloted for the militia he can procure a substitute slave for £ 5 . M . S . B . —Old Buffery must have known we were too fully occupied to gire opinions upon cases which would take half the week to advise npon . Itis uot fair to expect answers to correspondents upon matters of heavy legal responsibility . Seta Kobbis . —We thank him for his letter , while he must see the impossibility of re-opening the subject to which it refers .
Bn > Again , Losd Jons . —We thank our poetic friends for their effusions , but their muse was rather tardy in responding to our call , as poor Lord John is not likely even to get into the auction-room again . Ms . Johs Cook , Upper Orwell-street , Ipswich , has made arrangements to supply _theSortfiem _Star on the Saturday morning . "Tse Land , Iwwich . —A meeting will be held on this all . absorbing subject , at the Castle Inn , Lower Orwell-Street , on Sunday ( to-morrow ) evening . C . B . A . —The lines 3 re respectfully declined . A _Wobkisg _Mechanic , Manchester , commenting on the tvranny of the Liverpool employers towards the mechanics of that town , reminds the aggrieved workmen that they have themselves principally to blame for tlieir present slavery . The mechanics , engineers , A _* _o ,
of Liverpool , were invited to join the society established on the 1 st of November last , at Manchester , for the purpose of counteracting the efforts of the "Masters Protective Society , ** to which invitation they never responded . Our correspondent severely denounces what he calls " the aristocratical spirit of the Liverpool mechanics , * " and tells them that if they desire the sympathy of the public , they must prove themselves worthy of that _sjtnpathy , _bv-umtiug with their fellow working men for the national protection of their order . Ms . Jobs Shaw , who , since the last convention , hasbeen sojourning in _Lancashire and Yorkshire , writes in most enthusiastic terms respectingthestateof Chartism and the progress of the Land _Society in those counties . He apologises to the men of Manchester for his absence from Carpenters' Hall on Sunday evening last , which
was caused by the want of a conveyance to take him from Bradford to Manchester within thepreper time . Speaking ofthe "Veteran Patriots '" and "Widows ' and Orphans '" Funds , Mr . Shaw says , that when a -certain pig-headed publisher in Bradford , who has fattened on the profit made by selling the Northern Star , was applied to for his aid to the above funds , he answered ( speaking of the victims ) , he knew " nowt about 'em—it served ' em reet _ " and refused to contribute anything . Mr . Shaw intimates that he will be in London "in about a week , " when he will he happy to render an account of his stewardship . _HoaE Cceb . t job . the Dcke of KoRFOLK . —The following article appears in the Debuts : —Everybody knows the old saying , " Vous n ' avez pas de pain ! Eh bien ! mangez de la brioche ! " An illustrious peer in
England has just _utteredaiKHW _& in serious mood of nearlj the same character , which has afforded a topic forthe entire English press . At an agricultural meeting held within his vast domain of Arundel , his Grace of Norfolk , the premier Duke of England , has _suggested to the astonished peasantry around him a most original expedient for supplying the want of potatoes . But mind it is not a discovery of his own . Oh , dear no J He says that a lady , the other day , gave him the idea in a letter . Something warm for the stomach is the matter in question . "Perhaps , " said the noble peer , " you are not accustomed to it , but it is impossible you should net like the taste . For myself I am very fond of it . Curiosity was greatly excited . The simple countrymen opened their large ears , and no doubt mouths as big . Wbat is this unknown wonder ? It is
curry powder ! It is probably necessary for us _toesplaiu that curry is a compound of white ginger , Cayenne peppsr , coriander , and saffron . There is a _great consumption of it in India , and we , in Paris , hare corrupted its name into curricle a . Tlndkmw . This is pehsA ihe Soke of _JJor / _olk recommends to the numerous population of his wide domains as a substitute for potatoes . "Tou must all know , " he adds , " that it is Tery comforting to the stomach . I will go further , and say that if a man returns home wet and exhausted , -and has nothing "better inthe house than hot water , by putting a pinch of this powder into it , he will go to bed much warmer aud more comfortably than he would have done without it . " Thus , when you are cold and hungry , and have neither fire nor bread , lake some carrick a . VIndiemc ; the receipt is excellent ! How is
it that truffles have not besn recommended to those who have no potatoes , there is so much similarity between them ? The man is wdl kaown who tried to habituate his horse to do without eating : aud relying upon the force of _hahiii < " te " u _* y diminished his feeds . When the poor beast died he exclaimed , "It is a great pity , f « r 1 had just brought him to live upon nothing : " All this , however , does not prevent the Duke of Norfolk from being an honourable and humane old gentleman , and an excellent landlord . The species of bonhomie witli which be has given this _extraordinary advice to his tenants proves him to have the best intentions in the world . But , in truth , when the whol « body of a nation is agitated by the question of how to obtain their means -of subsistence , it would be better to give them more serious answers . Itis already known tobe a certain
fact tbat in the _manufaeturing districts of England , mothers give to _thtir infants doses of opium t » stop the cr ies of nature ; but to imagine the calls of hunger from thousands of men can "be laid asleep hy a little Cayenne pepper is , as we conceive , a strange illusion . Long ago was it that Bacon pronounced tlie revolt of the belly to be tbe worst of revolts . " 3 . H _; Restoration of the Exiles Patriots . — To the Editor ofthe Northern Star , —Dear Sir , —As you have obliged me by inserting in your _democratic journal two previous communications on tlie above important sub . ject , I am thereby induced to solicit the same favour on this occasion . It affords me the greatest satisfaction that the recent Chartist convention have _piaci-d this subject in such a prominent position before the people , aud I trust that tens , nay , hundreds of thousands , will
respond to their truly tlemocratical recommendation . But as there is z course which might ( and 1 hope will ) lie adopted , uot recommended by that patriotic band , from which I am confident the most important results would accru-, and being desirous that no available means should "be left untried that would be calculated to ensure the restoration of these much injured and persecuted patriots , and also , that should this effort < I do hope it wjll be a determined effort ) prove unavailing , that we might not have the unpleasaut _rejection that had we adopted _f . ch means our object would have been gained . I would impress on tbe minds of the electors ofthe United Kingdom the imperative necessity of forthwith waiting on , or communicating witli , their _representatives in the House of Commons , as it must be palpable , to every one who thinks ou this subject , that unless tiie motion of the noble-minded Duncombe is
supported ta our agitation ont of the House will be useless . Therefore , ye electors , Jet act tbis appeal to your sympathies be' made in vain , but with tliat resolnte importunity which will not hear of denial , urge on the attention of those who can give them freedom—the case of these victims of class misrule . Iu the sacred name of liberty demand justice in their behalf , and also state , in plain and understandable language , that if they -desire your support at the next election ( an event not far distant ) they niustsupport the motion of the patriotic Duncombe , for a free pardon of these men . For jour encouragement I will add , that this course has been adopted in the borough of St . Marylebone , and favourable answers received . Up tbeu , arouse , and about this good work without delay * Hemember that united and determined we conquer , divided aud lukewarm we fail . Forward forward , with firmness and resolution , aud success is certai » . _-J _<* HS _Amwii , Somers Town *

_J From Punch . ] A youthe there was of changefiille lotte , Now bryghte , now seedie broune ; Hee caUed bymselfe " a kiddie swelle , " And lived upon ye toune . _Hysyouthfulle pome hee wasted alle In synne and godlesse revell ; And oft played hee unlawful ] gaimes , And oit hee played ye devill . Atte length a friend , who oft before Hadde counselled hym to wronge , With trecheronspitie , acted welle , Thus wagged hys wille tongue : " Thouknowst mj garbe how sere before , " Thon seest its bryghtnesse now ; " My tiune is flushe ; alle this I gayued " By boldncsse , as mayst thou . "
** How 1 " eager cryed ye seedie one ; Thus answered hee of bronze ; " My frende , I maide alle this and more ' By Diddelsexe _Junctionues . " " .

_ Monday. Tiudb.—All Accounts From The T...
_ MONDAY . Tiudb . —All accounts from the _tuaaufactuving districts agree in , their evil Ibrebodinga , while in those articles only which warrant speculation , reduced prices are maintained . Great caution is observable in every branch of trade , while hope _attaches itself to an early demand for spring goods . Tub Stock Exchange . — Tho return to office of the " VASciNATiNi _; hsascikk , " and the fact of " John not being strong enough for the place , " aud having no chance of gaining flesh by another go at the "fleshpot , _"^ has caused a " merry Christmas" amongst the robbers on change . Public securities are loo * king up , and shareholders are beginning to speculate upon a comparatively easy " sliding scale , " while exchequer bills , the ministerial pulse , beat higher , and
bespeak confidence if not security . Thb Cons Laws . —There has bee n more rubbish spoken and written upon the subject of free trade within the last week , than was ever spoken or written in any ten previous Christmas weeks . The Maryiebone Vestry Petition for free trade has already received over 7 , 000 signatures . " Don ' t they ivish they may get it . " Tub Cork Trade . —By St . Paul and the Mari time Express the work goes _bravelv on , and wheat is sliding down , down , downy ; so tha t the farmers are beginning to think of tho Irishman ' s old joke , who , when he was told that what he liked so much in the apple-pie was a quince , replied "Musha , MoodywarsJ if one quince makes an apple pie so good , what the devil would an apptepie be , _Ifitwasallo'tt . _' nc- _'a . " The farmers are beginning to _askifthesiWewoffree trade is so good , what the devil will the substance be ?
_Puisce _^ Albert ahd the Poor of Windsor . —Ilia Royal Highness has demurred to the proceedings commenced against him by the vestry for the recovery of the pauper ' s pittance out of the Flemish farni , held by its German occupant , and for which , not satisfied with £ 30 , 000 a year , and many more thousands made up from pickings off the bones ol the _paupeis , he refuses to pay poor-rates . There is a large sum of money now due at tbis Christmas time , while thc German Prince is revelling on English taxes , and the paupers have but a Flemish account ol their rents , for we tell the Prince Consort that the title oi ' the poor to subsistence from the land is superior to his wife ' s title to the throne . Representation of the West Riding . —It appears that tke ex-secretary for Ireland , Lord Morpeth , is to have a " walk over the Poor Law course this time , but next time he must" win to so iu . "
Foreigx . —The message of Mr . President Polk lias thrown consternation amongst the conclave of European crowned heads , * the French press declaring that France was more insulted than Englaud by the document . However , be that as it may , it is a regular notice to quit all further intervention with American affairs upon the Holy Alliance . As we announced , in last week's Star , the question of European intervention with the affairs of the Republic has now been discovered to be the gem of the document , and while we are talkiug of war the Yankees are raising a national militia of 200 , 000 . France . —The king of the Parricades has opened the French chambers in person , in a speech fall of the usual rigmarole , in which he congratulates
himself upon the good understanding that subsists between him and our Queen , and upo n the assurance that wherever his sens appear they have added to the dignity of France , and concludes with the cheering intelligence that his . _qrawfeonsare _' incttaMJH . _inntonbcr ; and we learn that the king thenrose , saluted the assembly , and retired , amid the cheers of his puppets . Spais . —If we had not had such a taste of Whig oppression and villauy , and if we could draw our conclusions from the opinions of foreigners , we should decidedly say that the conclave of kings look with more dread upon a Whig than a Tory administration , as a proof of which , w » learn that " the resignation of Sir Robert Peel , and the restoration of Lord John Russell , was received with tremendous consternation at Paris and Madrid .
Sir James Graham asd the Di blis Corporation . —The Home Secretary has at length consented to the presentation ofthe address ofthe Lord Mayor , Aldermen , and Burgesses of Dublin , and those worthies are to have the honour of tendering their loyalty to her Majesty , on the throne , at Windsor Castle , on Saturday the 3 rd of January , exactly at a quarter before three o ' clock . The Theatres . —During the Christmas week the managers ofthe several resorts of fun and frolic had amply catered for the amusement of old nnd young . We remember no Christmas season when there appeared a greater competition amongst managers for public favour ; but that which had the greatest attraction for us , was the Marylebone theatre , where , to
our great delight , we f ound our own social and political aspirations presented in full character dress , to the boxes , gallery , and pit . Every working man should visit this popular place of entertainment , and should exult at seeing his order , and what is of moment to them , for the first time presented upon the British stage , without derision or obloquy . Ireland . —Conciliation Hall . —The repealers are literally flabbergasted by the evacuation of Downing Street by little John , and the restoration of Sit- Robert Peel . We are assured that the conventicle was almost too smaU for the elongated faces that looked mournfully upon each other on receipt of the intelligence . Bishopricks in anticipation , judgeships , commifBioRerships , parsonships , attorney-generalships ,
solicitor-generalships , knightships , clerkships , _baronetships , and chief _constableships were flying about thick as hailstones in a storm , and we learn that Mr . Steele was addressed on all hands by his new title oi " Sir Thomas , " and that Mr . Arkins swore he would change his Christian name to something else , lest he should be mistaken for 'Com Steele . Our own correspondent sends the following account of what occurred in the family of the chandler to Conciliation Hall . This enlightened member ofthe association was promised a baronetcy , and ran open mouthed to his wife to communicate the glad tidings , and upon entering the shop , fairly out of breath , he met the thorough "sarvunl ; , " or " maid of all work , " Judy _O'FJannigan . and thus bespoke her , — "Yerra , Judy , were ' _sroy
Jady l" "Wisha , what lady , yer honour V "Why ; my lady , y & ub—t—h ? " " Wisha , thedevilalady _roysclfs seen this holyday . " " Bad luck to yer sow ) , you varmint , didn ' t you see your own mistress I" " Oh , then indeed , I axes your pardon , sin " . re I didn't know tkat she was a lady . " " She is then ; go call her to me . " " Why , then she ' s finishing the dips , and if I calls her now perhaps it tis' to spile them she would . " " The devil may dip your sowl , go and call her I tell you . " Judy obeyed , aud her ladyship made her appearance with the hall-finished dips in her hand . " WeU , * said Sir Darby , " you see what God has sent to us . I ' m Sir Darby , and you are my lady Molly ?"
" Oh glory be to God , but I always knew that God was strong , and the Liberator was just . _^ Wisha , come here Judy , and call me , my lady ? " " Yes mam , I will . " " Well then do it ; why don't you do it V " I will mam , for the future . " "Do it this minute , you writch , or I'll be after murdering you ? " "I tell you I will for the future , and I'll he bound I am not RICH , for if I was , it isn't here I'd be . " Our correspondent assures us that this first blow to her ladyships new born honour threw her into a swoon , fr om which she only recovered to ] e . _* . rn tliat the Whigs were OHt , and that she was no lady at all , when Judy in triumph swore " that she was right after all , tliat she ivas always right . "
Dreadful Hurricane in Ikela , \ d . —We take the following from a Dublin paper : — "The city has been again visited by another of those tremendous gales of wind , which has been of such frequent occurrence during the last fortnight . It litis been blowing all yesterday and this day a perfect hurricane from W . N . W ., accompanied by heavy and almost incessant showers of disappointment . " A wag , hearing that the gale blew from _W . _R . _Vi _., swore that it did not mean west , north-west , but that it meant WISHA , NO WHIGS ! !
_Mdnev Market and Stock Exchange , Ireland . — Everything that denotes ministerial confidence has a decided upward tendency , while everything that denotes national trust is slipping down the sliding _scaia The improvement in the London market has had no effect whatever in restoring confidence in Irish jobbery . One baronet , guided by the proverb oi " MUCH WILL HAVE MORE , " has lost £ < _J 0 , _OO 0 by tlie recent failure—the devil mend him , why didn't he buy land and let it out in small farms to the poor ?
The Cors Trabe . — We are informed that Paddy has got such a foretaste of what the effect of a repeal ofthe Corn Laws will be , by the tumbling down of prices , that he swears the Liberator is no Lilcrator after all , and that he knows he sails best in the _polt tical hurricane , thrives best upon confusion , ami always has enough to live upon till the gale Wows over , whatever the hands may suffer from short commons . We also learn , that if an election doesn't speedily take place , that the rural constituencies will vote for the devil rather than for an ABOiiimm of man
capital AND STOCK . Coercion . —The limes newspaper , aided by the Orange press of Ireland , is endeavouring to induce the government to pass a new CoercioH Bill to put down the outrages of the landlords , and for that purpose , is doing all in its power to create a bad feeling against the Irish people by making a hash of the most trifling occurrence under the head of

The Famine—As we stated last week the affrighted farmers are beginning to repudiate tlieir own ghost , and hence in East Lothian and elsewhere , we find resolutions passed , that the late harvest wasnot only an abundant one , but that there was also a large supply of last year ' s grain on hand .

Here follows the mournful catalogue : — FoBEiGsf provisions . —The arrivals of poultry and other- articles of consumption during the past week for supply of the markets at this festive season , have keen of _u remarkably extensive character , whilst the importa- ' tion of cattle and provisions generally have been of more rhati the average nature . A large quantity of corn of the various kinds of grain kuown under that head ; flour , both wlieateu and potatoe ; also vegetables of the latter
description , have arrived , consequent , doubtless , upon _tjie reported scarcity of such articles in this country , and the necessity of their supply from extraneous sources . It will be seen that the arrivals , iu many instances , have been from quarters whence we do- not usually look for _sucli extensive supplies ; but we will enumerate some of them , nearly in the order of their arrival during the period -named . -The Virginia , a sailing vessel from Jersey , brought 47 tons of potatoes ; the Pallas , from St . Malo , aud the Commerce , from ltivaldacella , both sailing packets , ll tons ot chestnuts , and 1 , 660 bushels of niits ; and the Monarch from HarJiiigoii , 3 , 0 * 21 casks of butter . The General Steam Navigation Company ' s vessels , Belfast , from Calais , brough t 10 cases of poultry , a large quantity of eggs , vegetables of various ; kindsand other
, descriptions of provisions ; the Burl of Liverpool , from Osteud , 48 packages of . poultry , and a qunntitjr of eggs _andKutter ; and the Harlequin , from Boulogne , 39 _packages of poultry , and other articles . The Krneste , from Bilboa _, 1 , 000 _funegas of chestnuts ; the Juno and . Mary , from Dunkerque , 135 cases of apples ; and the Gipsy , from Rouen , the large quantity of 100 tons of potatoes , the produce of France . The General Steam Navigation Company ' s ship Giraffe , from Rotterdam , brought iu addition to 6 eons and 12 oxen , ( a small nua . ber . in const * _, quenceof the roughness of the weather at this season , and the probability of tho detention of the vessel , and inconvenience nnd delay to tho * passengers arising if a larger number were shipped , ) 37 packages of poultry , 22 of yeast , the extraordinary large number of 322 baskets
of fish , iu a fresh state , and au extensive cargo , consisting of seeds , cheese , tongues , butter , aud other articles of Dutch produce ; and the Company ' s ship Ocean , from the same port , which had been despatched specially for the purpose , brought . 40 oxcu , 39 cows , 33 swine , a novel article of importation from that quarter , and no' loss than 62 D sheep , being by far the largest number brought in one vessel to tliis country from tlte Continent . Notwithstanding the immense number , of cattle on board this vessel , and the roughness of tho weather , she brought them over , in consequence of her extensive dimensions and accommodation , and her seaworthiness , and landed them at the Brunswick-wharf , Blackwall , for their destination , in perfect safety . The Company ' s steam * ship Rainbow , from Iiavre , brought . 101 packages
of pears . The Barend , from _Harliugeo _, Holland , a Dutch striving vessel , brought 56 cows , and 58 sheep to ths same destination , as tho steamers from Rotterdam , The Matchless , from Dunkerque , brought 1 ) 25 bags of flour , the produce of Frauce ; and a large number of sailing vessels arrived also in the middle of the week , from Holland and France , laden with oats , wheat , aud grain , generally fov the London market , in addition to the usual and numerous arrivals from the Russian , Prussian , and Austrian ports . A sailing vessel , the New Blossom , from Vilkirieiosa , brought 800 bushels of chesnuts . The General Steam Company's ship Soho , from Antwerp , brought U baskets of smelts , and other articles ; and the Triton , from Ostend _, U packages of poultry and a large quantity , of butter a __ d eggs , the
whole being the produce of Belgium . About the same period numerous arrivals of American produce have taken place at the port of Liverpool from the various shipping poitsof the United States ; a montioii of two or three of them will be sufficient to give a correct idea of their extent and importance . The Roseius , from New York , brought 13 , 000 bushels of wheat , nearly 5 , 000 barrels of flour , -100 barrels of apples , _& c . ; tlie IVaTren , from Baltimore , nearly 10 , 000 bushels of corn , 4 , 000 barrels of flour , 1 , 000 hams , ic . ; the Young Queen , from Montreal , 1 , 100 barrels of flour , 2 , 500 bushels of peas , 530 quarters of wheat ; and several other vessels have also arrived both at the ports of Liverpool and London with articles of a similar kind from the various shipping ports of Canada , the produce of that place . A sailing vessel , the
Friends , from Gigon , brought 1 , 300 bushels of small , and 500 bushels ft' chestnuts ; and numerous vessels have also arrived from Lisbon , St , Michael ' s , St . Uhes , and other places in the south of Europe , laden . with oranges and other seasonable fruits . The importations into the port of Hull , too , in the same period of time , of cattle , provisions of various descriptions , and grain generally , from the northern ports , have been of a very extensive and important character . The General Sleam Company ' s vessel Tourist , from Calais , brought a large quantity of poultry , and their steam-ship Venezuela , which arrived at tlie Brunswick Pier , Blackwall , on Friday , from Rotterdam , brought the large number of 432 packages offish , 20 packages of poultry , 34 hoxos of yeast , 400 packages of butter , a large quantity of seeds , cheese , and other articles the produce of Holland for consumption iu this country , the Princess Victoria steamer , from Antwerp , brought 31 packages offish . The Flora , from
Hamburgh , 4 , 000 packages of butter , a very large quantity ; aud the City of Boulogne steam-ship , from lioulogne , brought a large quantity of poultry and other articles , the produce of France . Subsequentimportatibnsinto Liverpool have also taken place of grain , flour , apples , and otlier articles of general consumption and importance from the United States . It is remarkable among these various importations of provisions from the continent to how great an extent the supply of _ircsh fish from Holland has been increased of late , inuddition to the numerous important supplies from _that country . The supply of smelts from Belgiumalso _, . are , oflate , increased vastly ; while , we believe , the fish brought from Holland is principally fresh cod , of a very excellent quality . Altogether from these enumerations of some of the importations , it will be seen that the arrivals of provisions generally have been of an extensive nature , and at the present time presents a feature of interest and importance .
The arrivals of cattle from the Continent into the port of London during the last week have comprised , accord- ing to ships ' manifests , 102 oxen , and 132 cows , 928 sheep , and 37 pigs . The following statement of thc imports of live cattle ' into England , duty paid , during the past year , is taken from an oilicial source , corrected up to lust Saturday week : — From January 1 to December 20 , 1845—Oxen and ¦ Cow 3 . Sheep . Pigs . London 0 , 123 ... 12 , 573 ... 833 Liverpool 17 ... 3 ... 20 Hull 5 , 669 ... 851 ... — Southampton ,. 65 ... 2 ...
—Total to lhe . 20 , 1815 ... 14 , 874 ... 13 . 434 ... 1 ) 13 ' Now , then , in 1811 , we were told that no surplus of any ofthe above things could bo found , or was likely to exist in any foreign country—precisely as thei 2 V ' me * and other ignoramuses now tell us , that there is no danger of wheat competition from other countries . The reader will see from the above list , that nearly one-thirteenth of the numberof sheep imported during the year was imported within the last week , and that the very worst week for such traffic . It will also be borne in mind that we named the autumn of 184 C as tiie earliest period at wliich the effect of Peel ' s tariff could be understood or realised . This is a Christmas-box for the farmers .
Stock Exchange . — Notwithstanding . the confidence partially restored by the restoration of Sir Robert Peel , as although Sampson was a strong man , and Solomon was a wise man , neither of them could pay money if they had'nt it—so do we discover the impossibility of the jobbers to discount the Prime Minister ' s confidence as prontably as they could wish ; and hence we find speculations of all kinds standing as they were , if not presenting rather a downward tendency . Ireusd . —There is no news from thc sister country to-day , being Tuesday , but hence our summary is robbed of its chief attraction . Foreign . —Still the Oregon aud non intervention , coupled with the embodying ol * the English militia , causes so much alarm upon 'Change and in all circles , that war , notwithstanding that WE _protest against it , and do not believe in its approach , is spoken of as an inevitable result . Wo think , however , that OUr minister has quite enough of domestic confusion on his hands at present to act as a caution agaiust interfering in foreign brawls , and especially in a contest of monarchical against republican institutions .
WEDNESDAY . Mosev Market . —The jobbers are beginning to get more and more afraid of the little " speck in the west , '' and all attempts to force the public security to their recent proud elevation are in vain . In fact , many of them are busily engaged in collecting the wreck of their recent speculations . Reveal of the Cors Laws . — The following fact may be relied upon . As soon as Mr . Goulbourn _, the Chancellor ef tlte Exchequer , had heard of Sir Robert Peel ' s determination to resign , and that little John was likely to be his successor , he wrote to his steward to discharge some carpenters and other tradespeople , who had been engaged in making alterations and repairs in his house ; the result of which was that upon the following night a stack of wheat belonging to the Right Honorable Gentleman was set on lire . So much fov iree trade and the moral instruction circulated by the League .
Court CincutAn . —During the early period of the week her Majesty was confined to the Palace by tin j squally weather , and Prince Albert was well _eiioup _^ li on Tuesday to leave the . * . lough station for _Buckingham Palace precisely at five minutes past nine , - and to return precisely at twenty ; minutes past two .

Merciful ' justice ! What has become of that heroic Irish niind which _lieW an intormer in the lowest detestation ? A natural feeling which , has induced thousands to die gloriously upon the scaffold , rather than earn tlie anti-national designation of "King ' s Evidence . " We have more than once stated that O'Connell was the betrayer of j the heroie Bagnell Harvey , who was hune uoon thft '

The Conciliation ILui „—At the last meeting our old warm-faced patriot , Tom Steele , was in the chair . A long letter was read from Wm . Smith O ' Brien , regretting thc policy that was likely to sever the connection between him and his dear friend , Mr . Wysc ,- and concludes with the assurance that the next six months are an important period for the association , and if thoy survive that period , thev ' li , uvbail _tubir lifetime .

Moonlight writes .
THURSDAY . There is a great dearth of news to-day—we suppose it is owing to Christmas time : however the morning papers are not without a bit of tun , and as proof we give the following seven lines and a-half from the first leader in the iimes of this morning It is not often that the old year has given way to the new with so sure a promise that the change of date would bc a substantial change of times . History has its own calendar , which seldom submits to be trimmed to ths periods of the sky ; but this year by an auspicious coincidence , the days begin at once to lengthen , and a new light to dawn upon the fortunes of man . ,.
Ah ! Ah !! There ' s a mouthful of moonshine . We presume our brother editor sat up to usher in the new year , and thus knocked two days into one , and would furnish us with a new calendar of 182 days and ahalf in the next year . Once upon a time a very stupid gentleman sat next to aver y sharp and witty lady , and being deficient in chit-chat , he was driven to the endlessresource . thc weather , or the season , for conversation , and observed , " don't you think mem , the days ave getting a great stretch ? " " Yes sir , 1 do indeed , " was the reply , " but I have heard that they _gcnerallydocttthistinieoftheyeuv . " Wepresume tliat the restoration of Peel , the clatter of free trade , and the thunder ofthe protectionists , have not as yet had any effect upon the length of days . But of course
: ' ' ' our friend means that the new year was ushered in with a new moon , but nevertheless if we may venture an observation upon our friend ' s new almanac , we cannot see what possible effect the change of moon has had this year more than in any other year upon tiie length of the days . Wehave more moonshine it is true , but we always understood that tlie length of the day was estimated by the rising and the setting of the sun . But . God help us poor ignorant mortals , we must suppose the moonshine of the Times has eclipsed the brilliancy of the sun , and as our friend would lead us into darkness , the moonshine is preferable for his purpose . Now we'll tell the Times a story ; one by which an old Irishwoman measured the change of seasons and length of day . One Mrs . O'Sliaughnessy was in the habit of commencing work
by candlelight on the first of November , and continuing it to the first of March . Upon one occasion a tax was put upon tallow between March and November , and of which _Mi _* s . O'Sliaughnessy remained in blessed ignorance , as she didn't want her candle . Well , upon the following first of November she went to Mrs . Brady for her candle , which had Formerly cost a halfpenny , and when she had received it , she , as was her custom , tendered a halfpenny in exchange , whereupon Mrs . Brady observed , " Ogh , my dear Mrs . O'Sliaughnessy , the halfpenny candle is a penny now . " " Ogh , yea , then Mrs . Brady , how is that my jewel ?" " Why the war , the war you know , Mrs . O ' Sliaughnessy , " " " Ogh , yea , bad luck to their souls then , wasn ' t the daylight long enough for them to iiiurtlici _* one another , but they must light by candlelight now ?"
The Corn * Laws . —As we announced last week , thc suspicion is very generally entertained that Sir Robert Peel ' s restoration , and the manner in whicli it was thrust upon him , will soften liim down considerably below free trade temperature . Upon all hands , and in all quarters , it is now confidently asserted that Peel , if he ever had , has not at present , the slightest intention of proposing a repeal of tlie Corn Laws , and then flio _;> , snap , snap , goes ministry after ministry , and bang , bang , bang goes the whole system . *¦ When rogues fall out , honest men come by their own . " Ireland . —Not a word of news to-day from Ireland , but all about the colleges , and very little of that .

Singular Accident On The Preston And Wtr...
Singular Accident on the Preston and Wtre Railwav . —An accident occurred upon thU line on Monday afternoon week , which , fortunately , wns not productive of any personal injury to any ofthe passengers , but was still ofa description to excite the most serious feelings of alarm . It appeal's that about a dozen of fat beasts , bought at a recent cattle sale at Lythani Ilall , had been brought to the Kirkham Station , for the purpose of being fowarded by the 1215 p . m . Fleetwood train to Manchester ; and that the company's servants had succeeded in getting eleven of tlie beasts upon the trucks on wliich they were intended to bc conveyed , bat were twice foiled in their endeavours to load a black bullock , the animal getting away twice , and eaeh time taking thc
line of railway towards _Fleetwood . On the second escape the beast pursued its course until it met tlie train , asd , as it was not seen by tke engineer in sufficient time to enable him to stop the train , its destruction became inevitable ( ior it seemed resolutely determined to dispute tho right of road with the train , instead of giving tlie line and taking the side , as a more sensible- beast would have done ) , and the _consequence was , that , on itseoming in collision with the front part of the engine , it was driven backwards , thrown down , and then forced forward lor some dis . tance , when thc wheels of the engine , tender , and two first-class carriages passed over it , and so _maiigliue tho carcase into the most fantastical form . But
wliat was much more serious , thc collision , or the joltings occasioned to the earlier carriages in passing over tho beast , were the cause of throwing three second-class carriages off the rails , without upsetting them , but iuclining tkem so much on one side as to give ground for thc most serious alarm to the passengers . Most happily , however , thc weight of the luggage trucks behind , and the engine , tender , and _fu-st-clnss carriages before , kept tlic second-class in theiv state of falling equilibrium until the passengers were all removed uninjured , and they were afterwards brought on to Preston in the first-class carriages ; and some time afterwards the remaining part ofthe train was brought on to Preston by another
engine . Semper Idkm . — Thc Times commissioner lias proved O'Connell to be a " _nuddle-man . " — Wc always thought him between tl \ _c knave and aiiioutcbank . _—PtincA ,

LOSS OF •¦ _TII"E -PKENOlf _* W . V _& STEASffiR THE PAPIN _, WITH / SEVENTY . SIX OP TUjJ PASSENGERS AND CREW . In our seventh page ' will be found a brief notice of tlie above . dreadful shipwreck ,. the following additional particulars we , give from the Paris Messenger of Monday : — _y The Government yesterday received the painful intelligence : of the loss of the steamer Papin , with one-half of the persons on board . She left Cadiz at two m _tlicafternotn ofthe 5 th inst ., bound for Senegal , keeping a steady course of south-west half-west _, lhe weather was fine on thc oth and Cth , but durin ° _* Jho iolloTfing evening the wind changed to west , and blew with extreme violence . About halt-past eleven
I in the night of the Oth the vessel struck on a sandbank nine miJes to tiie north of Mazagan _, within three cables' length at tlie utmost , of the land . It was impossible to baek tlie engine ; as the paddles were embedded in the aand . For three hours , however , she resisted all thc forco of the waves . At four o ' clock in the morning of . the 7 th she was full of water , the sea sweeping her deck . At five o ' clock tlie funnel fell and crushed several persons who were beneath it . At half-part five M . Alarey Monge , the French Consul at Mogadere _, who was at the extreme end of the poop , was wasted by a wave down into the hold , and there perished . Lieutenant Deuil met with the same fate a few _mmutes afterwards . Upon tliis several of the crew threw themselves into the
sea , with tlie hope of saving fihemselves by means of span , floating around , * but msst of them perished also , aud it was only by making the most desperate efforts tliat some readied Azimour , a small village three miles to the ' north of the place where the Papih struck : On the landing of these the Morrocomen hastened to receive and assist them . One gave his _bucaous to M . dn Bourdieu , commissioner at Goree , who was a passenger in the Papin . Camels laden with brushwood were brought down , a great fire was lighted , and the natives did ali in their power to console and relieve the unfortuiiat sufferers . At eleven in tlie morning , the persons who had succeded in getting to land were only thirty iu number . The mainmast ot
the vessel , which , . until then , had remained firm , although the Papin was cut in two , fell and crushed about , thirty persons . Inspired by a gctierous devotedness , Douesuard , thc sceond master gunner , _Mirabeau , the second maitre de manoeuvres , _Dusforges and _Natalani , seamen , and Koyol , a voltigeur , of the 3 rd regiment of marine , who had reached the land fitted out , with the authority of M . dn Bourdieu , the whale-boat , which was thrown on the coast in order to make an attempt to save the persons who were still alive in the vessel . They succeeded in getting through the first breakers , but were afterwards upset and thrown on the shore , wliich they reached safely . In the meantime , Mr . Redman , the consular agent of England , at Mazacan . and our own
who had left on the same morning for Rabat , heard that a French vessel was wrecked on the coast , immediately turned back , and arrived at the scene of disaster . After having provided with the most active solicitude i ' or the first wants of the shipwrecked persons who had reached theland , My . Uedman exercised his influence to induce the Arabs to go on board , and bring off the unhappy persons who were still there . The Avabs showed on this deplorable occasion as much courage as humanity . In less than two hours they had brought to land fortyfour persons , carrying them on their shoulders , and swimming whilst the tempest was still raging dreadfully . Alter convincing himself by the information of threw different envoys that there was no longer
any living person on board the Papin , and after having given the burial rites to eight unfortunate persons , who had beeu washed ashore , Mr . Redman conducted all the shipwrecked persons to Mazagan , where the most eager and attentive care was paid to them by himself and his three brothers . The letters wliich have been received from Mazagan are full of eulogium of the admirable conduct of Mr . Redman . Forty-four persons , who remained on tlie vessel , certainly owe their lives to him , and even those who had reached the Jnnd arc equally indebted to him for life , considering the state of sufferand destitution in whicli he
ing found them . When the news of _theloss ofthe Papin arrived at Gibraltar , Sir Frederick Nicholson , commandant of the British naval force , hastened to write to our Consul , _oi-1 ' ering to send to the spot the English steamer Plainer with the necessary mccours . The Flamer , in fact , leftimmediately for Mazagan . M . Moray Monge , the Consul at _Mogndore , Ai . Fleuriot de Langle , the commander of the vessel , andall the staff of the vessel , witli the exception of M . de St . Pierre , a volunteer , have perished , with about half the crew , in all seventy- five . The persons saved arc seventy-six in number .
Tiie Gales In The Channel. This Coast, W...
TIIE GALES IN THE CHANNEL . This coast , within the last few days , bas been again the scene of a number of peculiarly violent gales . The earlier part of last week , which had been distinguished for a remarkably hard and biting frost , was succeeded in the latter part by wind and rain of si . fiercely tempestuous character . On Friday the wind blew with so much lbrce and violence on shore , that chimney pots in various quarters were thrown fiom their positions , branches of trees were wrested from their parent steins , and window panes dashed to atoms . But the commotions on hind were trilling to those to be seen on the bosom of thc sea . Far as the eye could reach , tlie billows seemed to lift themselves mountains high . No vessel could
leave tlie port of St . Iielier ' s without risk of _experiencing the untoward effects of their daring venture ; nor could any craft safely direct its helm in quest of shelter to our harbour ; the huniir _. ds of hidden rocks which gird our shore threatening destruction to both goers-out and comers-in . The mails , also , between Jet-soy and England , have especially experienced the effects of the storm . So fiercely raged the sea on Tuesday last , that the mail which should have left the island at the hour of eight o'clock the same morning , wa 3 prevented from setting sail till twelve o ' clock at night , a partial calm having in thc meantime supervened . The mail , also , which should have arrived in Jersey on Sunday morning early , did not make its appearance till yesterday ( Monday )
morning , about seven o ' clock . Nor is it with respect to the delay of the mails that inconvenience has been alone felt . During the last eight days the communication between Jersey and the coast of France has been completely at a stand , no vessel , in spite of the promise of reward , being able to summons sufficient courage to set out upon the enterprise . A considerable numberof English gentlemen reached Jersey by the Wonder on Sunday morning week , tn route for France , for the purpose of spending a " merrie Christmas" amongst their friends in Brittany . The vessel , however , which should hilVC Carried them onwards on Monday had been itself stormbound iu France for two days previously , and had been unable to reach Jersey to convey _passengers to
their destination . Monday , Tuesday , and Wednesday passed away , and the Lord _Collingwood was still confined in the harbour of St . Malo . Christmas morning dawned , and our wayfarers found tbat it was " all up" with their " mcrrie Christmas . " Some would have immediately returned again to England , but , unfortunately , their final resolutioa iiad not been made till two hours after the last vessel , tor the week , had taken its departure . A full half of these " unfortunates" set sail for their native land again , on Sunday morning , while the other moiety , cither plucking up a magnanimous resolution , or having a few further days at command , waited patiently till yesterday , when a French cutter departed with them for Jersey for the desired shore .
A peculiarly unfortunate instance of disappointed hope is evinced in the case of one ol" thc voyagers who returned to England . It was the case of a military officer who had not seen his wife for _^ belong space of twelve years , iiaving been absent from Siome on foreign service during that protracted period . She resided in Brittany , and at the present . time he had only eight days to spend with her .
