NEWSPAPER. IMMORALITIES. The newspapers have lately suffered under the infliction of Miss Mabeikine Sana's trial for murdering her seducer, and the details of Mrs. CcnninohjW ' 8 notorious career. We find some of the English newspapers, in reference to the latter case,—which has occupied the public mind, in this country since the end of January, -^ endeavoring to throw a slut upon our press generally, : liy imputing to it a vicious predilection for triminal narratives, without ranch regard for decoacy of language and thought. IVe confess that, of lato years, the desire to convey the fullest information, and the competition among the collectors of news, have rendered us somewhat liable to the first part of the charge, but deny, in the most emphatic man¬ ner, that tho American newspapers err In this manner as much as the English do. 'Witness the length to which.tho PAiMEa-poison trial rim on, in the English journals, and the great space lately devoted by the Scottisli press to tho...

THE I'lUMCH'IiE OF BRITISH ASNESA TION. On the 28th July there was a short debate in the English Houau of Commons upon the unsatisfactory position of afluiw in British India, its cause, and tho measures necessary to restore peace, order, and confidence. Tho attack on the misgovernnumt of the ruling authorities in India was made by Mr. Disraeli, and, though out-talked and out-voted, he mndc out a strong case, which will make a decided impression, no doubt, beyond the House of Commons. On the part of tho Government, he was responded to by Mr. Vkknoh Smith, who is a Cabinet Minister, and that variable Jack-in-the-box, Lord John Russell, the in signiflcenco of whose stature Is in consistent accordance with the smallness of his mind.— Disraeli's suggestionjwas to redress thejgrievances which the Hindoos complained of, and to send a commission to India to inquire into the causes of disaffection, even if the conduct of the Governor-General himself were one of them.

STATE POLITICS BENERAr. PACKER SPEAKING TO TUE PJEOW.E. We perceive that some of our cotemporaritis are exorcised because General W. F. Paokee, andor the instructions of the Domocratio State Committee, has conceived it to bo his duty to decline the invitation of Hon. David Wilmot, the Republican candidato for Governor, to a public discussion. Some ridiculous contrasts have been drawn in consequonco of General Paokee' s declension. The taere fact that the Democratic eandidatc for Governor has not deemed it proper to meet Ms Republican opponent in joint discussion, has suggested to cortain objectors the example set by Governor BiaWB in his memorable canvasses of '61 and 64, and that of Governor Wise, of Virginia, in 1854, and also the presidential campaign of 1856. It these objectors will look carefully at the instances they have cited, they will find that inno one caao has the proposition for a joint discussion been agreed upon by opposing candidates. Gov.

THE QUESTION OF CUBA. No.matter how t,h<j f&tal and Irresponsible expeditions againstCubamay have delayed tho final acquisition Of that island by the United States, political event's daily transpiring are ripening ' the fruit, and it will not be many years, we trust, before the grand desideratum is accomplished. Tho internal, condition of Spain, the misrule of tho rulers, the misery of the people, tho reduced and reducing revenues of tho government, and all those evils which surely precede the breaking up of that great power which at one thne lorded it with irresistible sway over all the South American continent, pblnt'to this conclusion. A few commercial facts may show, in addition to the political reasons we haVe suggested, tho rapid tendency of present events to the annexation of Cuba to the United States. Nor should it be forgotten that at the moment Great Britain is pursuing her conquests in the Chinese seas, she is for the thousandth time blindly and wil...
