Odessa, Jan. 25.—Though peace be- tween Persia and the Porte is concluded, the Schah having signed the ratification at Dhivan on the 6th Jan. some sensa- tion has been excited by the news that serious disputes had arisen between the Russian General Termaloff, commanding in Georgia, and the Persian Prince Abbas Mirza, respecting the determination of the frontiers. Considering, however, the internal situation of Persia, the Prince will doubtless give way. j Carlsruhe, Alarch 14.-The official paper of the 12th, publishes an order from the Home Department to the following effect 0 The Russian Legation at our Court has again communicated to the Foreign Department the omcial declaration 11 that it is not authorised to deliver passports for Russia, except to emigrants who can give sufficient proof both of their having obtained permission to emigrate, and of their possessing a sum of 400 florins, which must be deposited in a banking-house of this city, to facilitate their establishment in the southern provinces of the Russian empire; lastly, they must prove fonds suiJicient for the expenses of their jour- ney." Switzerland, March 12.—The Great Council of Rome, in its Sitting of the 6th, deliberated on the proposal for a mi- litary convention with the King of the Two Sicilies.—After a debate of seven hours, it was determined that the Govern- ment would be ready to conclude with the King an agreement for four compa- nies on certain conditions. Paris letters of Wednesday contain some curious facts respecting the opening of the Chambers, King Louis XVIII. was rolled in his chair from his apart- ments in the Thuileries to the hall in the Louvre, fitted up for the Royal sitting, as on the two last occasions of opening the Session. It will be recollected, that till within these two years his Majesty met the Legislative Bodies in the Hall of the Peers at the Luxembourg. The in- firmities which induced him to alter this arrangement, and to order his Peers and Deputies to assemble before him nearer home, manifested themselves on Tuesday in a manner to make the throne an object of pity during one of the most august pageants of royalty. Whether urged by Ministerial policy, or led by personal fondness for display, his Majesty had re- solved to appear in public when evidently unfit for the fatigue of a public exhibition. His memory, which has hitherto been very good, seemed entirely to have de- serted him; he read his speech in an in- distinct, hesitating manner, -and with the air of a man who attached no meaning to the words which he uttered. While the I names were calling over, and the subse- quent business proceeding he fell asleep several times, notwithstanding the con- tinued though delicately concealed efforts of the Duke of Blacas,his first genlilhomme in attendance, to keep him awake.—On the day of this melancholy exhibition, news is said to have arrived in Paris, that Ferdinand had issued a Decree equivalent to a military amnesty, and had given the pledge of the speedy publication of an amnesty embracing all classes. This De- cree determines the'situation of all: hose who have served in the Constitutional Armies as officers or .soldiers, whether they voluntarily abandoned their stand- ards, were made prisoners of war in th?' field, or were included in any of Hie nu- merous capitulations with the French. A general pardon is extended to 'hem—a pardon for resisting foreign aggression and no restrictions with respect to their place of abode are except tholl they shall not inhabit Madrid, or any of the places of Royal residence. The Commissioners of inquiry into the collection and management of the Irish Revenue have published their 7f » Hepori, which- follows up the principle* of the preceding Reports, by :t narrative of the improve- ments already resulting from the labour* of these Commissioners, and by a state- ment of the errors and irregularities which in certain branches of the public service, s'i!! remain to be corrected. The pre., sent Report confines itself to the depart- ments of the Customs and Excise, It appears that the changes sanctioned by Parliament during the last session liav greatly cont:il.et -d to facilitate and im- prove the collection of the revenue, an j to extend the trade and enliven the indus- try of Ireland. These changes compre- hended as well, an incorporation of the revenue establishments throughout the United Kingdom, as a code of arrange, ments for simplifying and adjusting the countervailing duties and drawbacks hp- tween the two islnnds-—for consolidating the duties of cusioms and drawbacks— and for accelerating the abolition of the Union duties. The final aim of all these measures has been, as the commercial world are sensible, to place the trade be- tween Great Britain and Ireland on the footing of a coasting trade. When a re- duction of the reciprocal duties was pro- posed, the cotton manufacturers of Ire land were dismayed with the apprehen- sion that Ireland would be over-run with British cottons, and that the native goods of that description would he thrown out of the home market of Ireland. Now, what has happened? instead of these fears being ever so lightly realized-in- stead of England superseding the Irish cotton manufacturer in his own market, the latter has found a market for his goods in the heart of the manufacturing districts of Great Britain for escr since the reduction of the duties, Irish cottons have been eagerly bought up in the great towns of Manchester and Glasgow,.

The annual expense in salaries, &c. which it is proposed to save by these ameliorations, will be above £ 17,400, or more than one-third of the whole yearly burden of the offices thus reformed. --0- The subjoined extract from a Madrid letter communicates the particulars of the arrest and imprisonment of Matthews: 1. Madrid, March 3.—Mr. Matthews, who was taken with Riego. is now, and has been for some months, in confine- ment in a dungeon in this capital, with- out the means of communicating with any individual, except through the Fiscal, who being the Agent of Government, must be considered his enemy. Matthews has been frequently without food and raiment; at one time 53 hours and a half without food. On one occasion, when attacked with serious illness, his petition for a medical man to be allowed to visit his prison was with reluctance acceded to; and when this person ordered him coffee, good soup, medicine, &c. he was unable, from want of money or friends, to obtain either, uatil the fiscal, from mere humanity, gave a triilo to the turn- key to send for the drugs which the phv- sican had ordered. Lnuerly, Sir W. A'Court, hearing of his deplorable con- dition, has contributed some slight assist" ance in the name of Mr. Canning. "The manner in \:¡ h;ch Matthews joined Riego is woi-i thews left Gibraltar for Malaga, with a recommendation from Sir lUheit Wilson to Riego. On his arrival at Malaga, however, he was informed that he could not be regularly admitted into the Spanish army, as the law opposed the admission of foreign rs. lie then solicited leave to follow the army to Carthagena, where he was admitted. When i.i(,go's army aban- doned him in the mountains, Matthews wandered about, in great distress, to avoid being taken prisoner,and met Gen. liiego, who accosted him in English, and invited him to follow him. On the fjl- lowing day they were taken, as already stated, ia a house where they stopped to refresh themselves."
