THE E AST. No charigc of ini'portance in tha nsnrci ei Chinese aftairs. Keshon has been restored lo rank, and appointcd to proceed to Ningpo, and connnunicate with Her Mhjesty's Plenipotentiary: II. iM's. ships are seizing tlie Chinese trading craft, whenever they can iind them - a policy which canno t be otherwise than mischievous' in ijs consequences upon the foreign trade. LATER FROM CHINA. Hong Kong, the new British sihlenjént, began to improre rapidly in building and business. Seven Chinese trading vessels had been seized by H. Mnjesiy'ssquaJron in the Chinese watete. taken to ilong Kong, and cüiidenined as lawlul pri?es. Tho Chinese continued to sink stones and block up the hver at Cantón. They have also placed I guns in the newly erected loris, and they are delermined to stop the shipmcr.t of tens Irom Canton to Macao, and of cotton from Macao to Canton. Yakeen. an Imperial Commissioncr. was killed in the attatík on Chinlíae. He has left irimense wealih. The reports from Cantón are vnrious; one ísk that -the Emperor hnd sent orders tu "fight it out," for that our demands are so unreasotiablo. that if he givesus a chair, we then want a bd. - Another is. that Kc-shen and two other officers have been depuied to Ningpo, to treat with JU. M.'s plenipotenti:uy. SOUTH AMERICA. This fair portion of the world isso continually in a ferment, that we hardly try to keep the run of her revolutions. Someofour readers will perhaps remember that Snnta Criiz, President of Bolivia, was deposed and driven ftom the republic, by an ormy of Chillians, and Peruvians, headed by Gen. Gamarra. Both Santa Cruz and the Bolivlans wished to estiihlish their former relations with cach other. and vaiious insurroctions took place for that purpose. This led to a recent invasión of Bolivia, by Gamarrn. at the head of the Ptr.ivian ariny. - Victory declared for the Bolivians, and the invaders were repulsed with great 6laughter. During the action, which lasted but 30 minutes, Gen. Gninarfa, President of Peru, wes shot, and 3,000 killed, or taken prisoners out of an arniyof4,000. The Bolivians have now. in their turn, invaded Peru, and are in posession of the southern prov - inces. It is espected the wliole country will come into their possession. BUENOS A Y RES An arriyal at Xew York from Buenos Ayres, brings date from that place 26th of January. A tremendous gale had been experie.iced there. and had done a good deal of damagc, Consider able injury was done to the shipping { which we have hcrelofore reponed.) The üde rose very high. and great losses hnve been experienced in the Boca and at Bnrrocus. - From 80 to 100,000 bushdssalt have been lost. - Evey thing was overflowed. A great mnny people have been drowned near Enssnda and tho Quilmes. The drought ha3 also done mischief. 100,00.1 aheep have been lost; indeed perhaps five times that number. You can have no idea, (says one account) of the state of the country. The curse oí Ileaven is upon us. The horses are dying for the want of grass and grain. Wheat is seliing at 130 a 200c. per tanegn of 3 S-4 bushels. Corn is out of the question. - There is noneco be had. White is paymg 121) per ('anega for wheat bran.

The Great Western arrived at New York or the 17th inst. The news she brought is of nitch imnortnnce. Lord Brough'am ha3 taken stronggtound agahs' the financial policy proposed by Sir R. Peel. The Overland Mail from India brings most important and disasirous newa foi the EngÜsb. -Affghanistan, capturcd twoor threeycars since 1 ter an immense slaughter of the natives. has been retaken by tiicm, and about six thousand British troopscut to pieces. Sir William McNaughton, the British Envoy at Cabool, was trenchously assassmated, and according to the correspondent of the London Times, his head was cut off. and the mouth being fi'.led with a poition of the mutilated jody. it was decorated with the green spectaclcs ivhichSir VVilliam used to wcar. and in that state parade J through the town by order of the son of Üust ïoiinmmed. Thn latter, our readers will remeniber, is the nntiveprince whom the British drove from his throne and carried into captivity when they invaded the country. The ladies of the envoy and sevoral officers have been taken as hostages by the Aflghans. Füll particuiarsof the bloody battlcs and the long train of disasters Svhich have terrv.inaied so frightfully, will bc found undcr the head uf India. The demanda for vengeanco areofcourse loud both in England and India. A reinforcement o! eight t'iousand troops has been ordeicd from England. Thk Richt of Skarch - The Times of 30th u!t. contains Lord Aberdeen's reply to Mr. Stevenson's note on the right ot search, and in its remarks upon this state paper, ?ays: "Lord Aberdeen begins by disclaiming all responsibility for any expressions used by his predecesor' Lord Palmerston: - he then explicidy repeats his formcr renuuciations, on the part of this country, oí all claim to a right of search over American vessels in time of peace; and observes, (hat when avessel is once asceriained to be American, die Britiuh cruisevs are ordered to abstain from all interference with her, be sue slavlr oh othkrwisk. "With American vessels, whatever bc their destination, British cruisers have no pretensión in otiy mnnner to interfere. Such vessels must be permitted, il engaged in it to enjoy a monopoly of this unhallowed trade. but the British Government, concludes Lord Aberdeen, will never en.ure that the fraudulent use of the American flag shall extend the iniquity to other nations, by whom it is abliorred, and who have entered into solemn trcaiies with this country for its entire suppresion." Ikdia. - The intelligence brought by the ovcrIrmd mail is the most disasüous which it v b ever fjeen the task of the historian or journalist to rèc:rd since the foundation of our Indian empire. - The fa te of Sir William Hay M'Naghteii will excite in eveiy Englishman feelings of griet and in-, ■lignation not to be depressed. The "Times" correspondent ihus describes the indignities to which his remains Were subjected: C-Tlio head of Sir VV. H. D'Naghton was cut ofl', and tlic mouth tieing filled with a portion of ttie mutilated body, it was d.'corated with the green spcciacles which Sir William vised to wear and in this state paraded tjüfougb the town by order of the son of Dost MahuMined." Rumor aaserts, that the whcle iorce (nerly C,000 men) in the entrenchcd camp at Cabool had been destroyed in the endeavor to forcé a passage through the denles to Jellalabad. We trust, however. that this will not bc confirmed. The force comprised her Majcsty's 44th regiment, three regimentsof the Bengal NatiVe Inlantry, and ],- 100 cavalry. besides artillery. It seems inciediihle that a force like this should be destroyed by the insnrgent Ghilzies.
