Authors and Books. In this country, where Macanlay long has been one of the most popular of recent English writers, considerable satisfaction will be felt.at the announcement, by his London publishers, of * fifth and concludingvolume of the far-famed « History of England, from the accession of James the Second,"—-the original _announcement, it may be remembered, was "to a period within the memory of living men." The new volnmo will be edited by Macanlay's sister—Lady Trevelyan, wife of Sir Charles Trevelyan, late Governor of Madras, who was very properly dismissed, last year, for making known his opinion (wholly at variance with the financial Government of India) that it was unwise as well as unjust to impose an Income Tax upon Hindostan. The publishers* notice runs thus: _" This last volume of Lord Macaulay's History of Eagland will contain the continuation of that work so far as the manuscript was left revised by him. The narrative is in immediate connection with the Fourth Vo...

%\_t i;rrsi WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1861. Enropean Politics. Foreign affairs continue in statu quo—that is, contused as usual. It would appear that France, acting with more than usual good faith to Sardinia, had finally determined to relinquish her previous protection of King Bombamno. Hitherto, the presence of a French fleet before Gaeta, just opposite the most pregnable place, has kept off the Sardinian fleet. But the last accounts have it that the French ships having departed, the Sardinian Admiral had placed his squadron of armed vessels precisely in the position where they will do most damage to Gaeta. The armistice between _Yiotob Emmanuel and Feascis II. was to have expired on the 19th nit., but the renewal of hostilities was not looked for until the 21st. Francis continued obstinate in Ms defence, but il was not expected that he could continue it much longer. It must be confessed that the Bourbon has conducted himself like a gallant man, in his last struggle. Various ...

Letter from Hamsburg. CCorressohdenoe of The Press,] ' ' Babbi$burq, Feb. 4,1861. ' In the House, Ms. Gordon read "an act for the settlement of claims against the Commonwealth." The title is general enough, and no. one woald imagine the object from. it_| wording; bat its purpose is, nevertheless, very, specific. The last official act of the Canal Commissioners, in 1859, was to pass a olaim of $6,000 in favor of A. M. & R White, of Portage Railroad fame, for wood furnished' the Commonwealth. Mesm W. E _Fraier and G-eo.-Scott voted for it. Mr. Nimred-Strickland not only noted _jagainst it, but went- to State Treasurer Magraw and , protested against its payment, and. it has-never been paid to this day. The next-day after the Canal Commissioners " put through " this claim, the Board was abolished by a unanimous vote of the Legislature. This bill proposes to refer the claim to the Attorney General, , the Auditor General, and State Treasurer, who are to hear all the testimony—...

Our "ports are to be blockaded I The Constitutionand the Macedonian, and the Wyomingand tho Brooklyn, and possibly a score besides, are to hang about oar ports, and the duties, which are all our loving brethren want at oar hands—money—tribute—not love, nor fellowship—these are to be collected at the entrance of our harbors! We will pay no tribute! Let the ports be blockaded. Charleston, and Savannah, and Mobile, and New Orleans, W_« will form goodly fellowship when oar ports art blockaded.

As an evidence of the conservative character of western Texas, it is only neoescary to state that at an election"held in Travia oounty, in the middle of January, the Union candidate for member of the Assembly was elected by 212 msjarity.
