The war-brig Rapid has arrived at Ply- mouth, with part of the crew of a captured slaver, charged with murdering Mr. Palmer, a midshipman, and eight of the crew of the Queen's sloop Wasp. The prisoners are ten in number, eight Portuguese and two Spa- niards. An examination has been begun before the Mayor and Magistrates of Ply- mouth. A native of Bahia, master of a slave schooner captured by the Wasp, who was present at the massacre, said he tried to dissuade the murderers from it. According to his evidence, the Englishmen were put on board the schooner; and the accused, who formed part of the crew of the Echo brigan- tine which had been captured, were placed under their charge. They resolved to murder the Englishmen; and seizing an unguarded moment, killed them all, though not without receiving some wounds themselves ;...

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. (From the Dorsel Chronicle ami Somersetshire Gazette, July ol.) FRANCK. Tlie massacre of Dallara, the responsibi- lity of which has been shifted from thc shoulders of Colonel l'elissicr to those of Marshal Hugcaud, has suggested the fol- lowing pertinent reflections in thc Constitu- tionnel :-It is well known that Marshal liugeaud will exchange thc Government of Algeria for thc direction of thc Vs ax Depart- ment mid of tho Army. It is also well known that thc Chambers have authorised the armament of thc fortifications of Paris. Supposing now, that a man, thc responsible author of the massacres in Hue Transnouaiu and the Buhara, openly professing such ho- micidal doctrines, should be invested with thc right of disposing of that frightful in- strument of destruction and death, wc may easily form an idea of the fate reserved for the capital in thc event of any disturbance." The Moniteur publishes despatches from thc Marshal, dated the 15th instant, which ' announ...

SIR,-As your journal appears to be the only one in town that takes any real and lively interest in the advaiccment of Colonial Institutions, I beg to offer a few observations on thc above very use- ful Society} which, I fear from mismanagement or some oller cause, is likely to lose much of thc public favQir.

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. No mail lias Leen received by the Itamillies ; but to thc politeness of thc Commander, to «hom we hog to return our best thanks, wc arc indebted for papers of the 2nd and 5th August,- the Times of thc latter date. Our columns contain copious extracts to which we have much to add in our next paper, lint nothing decisive of importance appears to have been stirring in Europe, if we except in respect to the relations of Great Britain with America. As a symptom of how matters stood, we learn that the underwriters nt Lloyds would only enter into insurances with a saving clause of " free of enpture." On the 30th July Van Diemen's Land wheat was sold at Gf>s. per quarter.

But the people of Liverpool themselves seem to think that tho history of one of their giant mercantile establishments better indicates the amazing advancement of the metropolis of tho north ; and as the prodigious pile of buildings, known as " Compton House," eclipses all others, and is just now an object of greater wonderment than ever, owing to enormous additions lately made, they point with a natural and justifiable exultation to it.
