ENGLAND'S POLICY CAFFRE WAR. In a very Important leading article which ap peared In one of the principle leading journals of London, a short time since, it was laid down as a principle that the United kingdom "de rived more benefit from the United States in its present position as an independent country, than it possibly could if no revolution had taken place, and the old thirteen colonies had remain ed provinces of Great Britain. The same paper which is looked upon as the director of the pub lic mind in that country, said, in the same con nection, that the interests of England and those of the United States were, so much bound to gether, that what would injure one would injure the other, and that next to an insurrection in that country and the overturning of its govern ment, nothing would be so much deplored by Engli-h statesmen as a dissolution of the Amer ican Union. The reason for this is obvious. Were the American republic to be dissolved and divided into a number of petty Slat...

Nosi-Interfehencf.. A letter from Europe, quoted by onc'of our qotemporaiirs, ny innl uiun to the vWt of the frigate Independence to Constantinople, "the United States appear to bo on the watch to take u prominent fcharc in the affairs of the old world. How little thN correspondent know of Americans. Because one of our frigate ha been in various ports in the Mediterranean,and has now repaired to Con tanliuople to bring Kossuth, if he wishes, to thU country, the letter-writer, reasoning by an ftlogy from" the conduct of European powers, imagines that thin republic intends to interff re, with arms, in the affairs of the old world. Nev. er was a greater blunder made. If there is any doctrine, to which this nation has been consis tent from the days of Washington down, it has been that of non-interference in the internal af fairs of other powers. Against the abniird doc trines that has prevailed for two centuries in Europe, that it was necesnary to maintain a balance of power, tho United...

BEAUTIFUL THINGS.; V ' 7 . Beautiful stars In the far-np ekles, ' ' Ah, how ye glisten and glow thro the night ! Gazing above where yon brilliance lies, Beautiful stars ! how I love vour light. Stately old trees with gnarled limbs, Vocal with birds that warble away Life in harmonious choral hymns, Ah I how I love your old trees to-day. Beautiful night with your shadowy wings, Hovering o'er us in silence and 6leep, Softly encircling earth's living things. Ah 1 how I love the lone vigils you keep. Ye are all beautiful unto my eye, Flowers, and streams, and old forest trees, And night with her glorious star-lit sky Yes, beauty dwelleth in all of these. HOW WILD HORSES ARE TAMED. Many wild horses are still caught at Cajue rio. One day a party of eight or ten of the na lives, mounted on well disciplined steeds, and headed by tho Lnglishmen, went out on th campos for this purpose. Perched amid the branches of a tall tree, I had an extensive view of the grassy plain, and was able distinctl...

From the Detroit Free Tress Ed. Correspondence. Boston, Sept. 9, 1851. "You have long since been informed of the disastrous termination of the Lopez Expedition. The Free Press took occasion to say that the landing of Lopez at Baiha Honda could not be explained on any rational principle. He took no extra arms, no ordnance, and had the Cubans been disposed to join his standard, it would have been vain and foolish to do so. I have heard from the most unquestionable sources,that Lopez's departure for Cuba was premature. Nearly four hundred Texas Rangers were ready to go in the Pampero, and it was the purpose of Lopez to take on the four or five hundred men ho had, go to Corpus Christi and receive the Rangers, with large additional armaments, ccc. Meantime, while arrangements were being per fected, Lopez received from officers of the Span ish Army at Havana, letters assuring him that the troops at that place would pronounce fcr the liberation of the Island immediately on his land ing, an...

Edwin Forrest has again resumed his profess ion. He made his first appearance at the Broad way Theatre, on the night of the 15th inst., in the character of Damon in the play of "Damon and Pythias." Jle was received says the New York Herald, with the most unbounded enthu Hiasm, and was called for at tho conclusion of each net, but did not come forward until the ter mination of the play. His speech was a remark able one. It consisted of, coarse references to lus domestic difficulties. We quote a few paragraphs from his speech as we find it reported in the Herald: "I have been abused, villified, and misrepre sented by a mendacious dudgeon lawyer, who under the color of his trade, without the slight est shadow of justice, has prosecuted and per secuted me; who has admitted to me in the presence of otters, that his client was a prosti tute, and that he had the right to purchase per juries from houses of ill-fame to blacken and falsify my character. (Shame, shame.) I have been abused, vil...

THE ISLAND OP CUBA. Reported Proposals of sale to the United States, by the Spanish Government. ,The following significant article we extract from the London Leader, of the 6th instant, an able and highly respectable journal, of the liber al school : Terms tor the Sale of Cuba, On author ity which we believe to be quite trust-worthy, we learn the terms of the negotiation now go ing on in London, for the sale of Cuba to the American government. It is anticipated that General Lopez will be repulsed; but after the Spanish government has thus cleared its honor, the Island will be bold to the United States for a round sum of money. More than one douceur will be given amongst other, an immense sum to the Queen Mother of Spain. But tho most remarkable bonus is the allotment of half the purchase money to the English holders of Span ish bonds. It is said that Lord Palmcrston dislikes these terms. Credat Judaeus.

The following letter is from consul Owen of Havana, in explanation of his course towards the Americans recently butchered in that city. Con sidering the small materials he had to deal with, he makes a pretty good story. He lived 44 four miles from the city" 25 minutes were neces sary to reach it. lie arrived there at 10 o'clock the prisoners were murdered after eleven. His office is three streets from tho palace; five minutes were enough to have reached there, and allowing 20 minutes for tho interview, ample time was afforded him to reach the place of slaughter. Tho truth is, the consul is now trying to cov er up his neglect, and well he may, since even the London Times pronounces the execution 44 a frantic butchery." What will Mr. Fillmore say to Air. Owen's course ? It will be justified, and Mr. Owen will be retained till the democrats get into power, that is till 1853 about the 4th of March. Free Press. Letter from the American Consul at Havana.

RELIEF FOR FATHER MATTHEW. A highly respectable committee of our most eminent citizens has been formed to raise an American fund for the relief and support of this philanthropist. The suggestion, comes from Hon. Henry Clay, of Kentucky, who addressed a feeling letter to Mr. H. Grinnell, setting forth the services of Mr. Matthew to the cause of hu manity, and especially the good effects of his la. bora in the cause of temperance in the United States, where half a million of persons have ta Ken the pledge under his administrations. The famine in Ireland left him from twenty-five to thirty thousand dollars in debt; and he is about to return home from his labors here to meet that embarrassment. Wo should think that in a community which eagerly conferred a bounti ful testimonial on the Rowland Hill of Amer. icaM for his eminent success in getting the Post ace Act of 1851 instead of the uniform and cheap postage which the people had demanded, would not willingly let Father Matthew go home...

ODE TO FREE TRADE. BT J. 8. BUCKINGHAM.

Free as the winds and chainless as the sea Should Intercourse between all nations be : Wherever land is found, or oceans roll, Or man exists from Indus to the pole. Then would unfettered Industry be paid, In the rich wealth its own free hands hail made ; Then would mankind fulfill heaven's first decree, And earth with fruitfulncss replenished be ; Then would war's blood-red banner 6oon be furled, And Peace triumphant reign thro' out the world; While freighted fleets would traverse every sea, And commerce wing her way, unchecked and free Island be linked to island Main to Main Binding all nature fast in love's harmonious chain.
