GREA>. ^ t.X ! It ACTS. " A Letter id published n M ndoy's Whig, written by "A 1 raveller, nn board (he L verpool Steamer. Oct 8," which contains severs^ ijiteypting facts and speculations We have no place* !or*?l the Letser?and we must limit ourselves to the following m06t important and relevant passages ; "It is now ascertained lh\t?the present crop of Great Britain is a short one. The rains which fr?-qu?ntly nj. terruptej and injured ihe harvest in the more southern counties, have la'ly been incessant, aod are thought to Iwye destroyed at least one half of the crop in the noitljern portion of (lie United Kingdom. 1 have been in ?20 Counties of England. and I have cotne to this conclusion, both from personal observation and the opinions of. those in whose judgment 1 had confidence About Ih^Pbl* then I have no doubt. The price of corn must crtWffyipntly, be sufficiently high to invite the impor tatiuri tif foreign grain. Every one knows that the duty on foreign grain is a varying one, and falling ae Ihe price rioes. it becomes merely nominal, or about 1} cents a bushel, when thp average price throughout the King dorn amounts to 7(1 shillings per quarter, which is equivalent to gi'J It) p-r bushel It must, however, be borne in mind, that this relers to the imperial bushel, which is abuut a aid part or nrar 3 per cent, more than tl.e old Winchester bushel, which is the bushel ol the United Stales The aver-gp price, when we lelt Liverpool, was 70s 9d per quarter, and as the market iiad been gradually rising to this point, it seemed not improbable it would rise yet higher would be hazardous, at present. to make purchases or shipments founded on the expectation of such use or even on the con'tnuance of the present pricps It has been strongly in some of the public journals, recomniended to the English farmers to send in their worst wheat first, lor the purpose of reducing the general a veragp, by which the duty will be proportionally enhanced, and the profits of importation be in the same degree diminished Should this recommendation be extensively adopted, it will, for a tune, produce its intended effect ol lessening, if not of preventing, foreign competition for some months ?Hut iit 'lie same degree that this selfish policy lowers the average price at hwi it must raise it afterwards, when only the better qualities of wheat remain to be sent to market, so that its only effect will be to raise (be price nest year oh much as u is depressed in this. Our grain growers th<-n, it they are prudent, are pretty sure of getting a good price for their flour, and now that, happily both lor themselves and England thut they have made a good crop, rpceive some compensation tor the several Lad harvests they have experienced of lateyears "The probable state of Foreign Exchange is'y to make a small further advance on the pi ices ol exportable breadstuff's The bills of the Bank of the United flute*, drawn on a great banking House in farts, the Hottinguers. to ihe amount of m-arly 7 000,OUU livres, or more than a million and quarter of dollars, were refused acceptance It is understood that these bills were drawn on the credit of American sin' ks and securities remitted by the Hank, and for which there no longer being any sale, (the Eur-'f ean market being glutted with tli'-m,) the Bankers did not find it safe or convenient to make so large an advance. "The dishonor of these bills by the Messrs. HoftingiiPin gave a great shock to American credit in Europe, and it was even said that the Government Treasury i??ti's, like common shin-plasters, were offered in London at a ui.-cour.t of 20 per cpnt I do not believe this report; but that it should have obtained any currency whatever is some evidence of the great temporary injury done hour national credit tl was currently rep rt ed that Rothschilds had made an arrangement with Mr. Juuthm t<> take op these bills, ami it is certain, that as to a portion of those which had been remitted to them, those H-inhers, hy omitting to have Jh? in protested *for non.acceptance, made themselves responsible; hut it is also true that a portion of these have been returned ptotes'ed. and are now on board this ship "Ihe Maine question is still unsettled, and I fear is likely to remain so tor some time Candid Englishmen have admitted to me. that the letter of the Treaty of IT.?:} is Wi ll lis; but they say that,as Great Britaincould not L-p supposed taha ve consented to that boundary v, hxli would Inve allowed a t rcijrn country lo intervene between lu-r provinces r.f New Brunswick and Lower Canada. tfte rqiiity of (/?.? ease, "rowing out ot their ignorance of tin" facts, is with "'u rn But Ihis plea, howt-vt r it may lurni-h ground for further negotinto n and u new tieaty does, on the principle of international law, virtually cede the present ground of controversy '1 hough I beite7e that the British Government has no stronger ground to occupy in this contest. I apprehend it will acl a* though it had. and post p. ne u decision that will so probably be against litem The present ministry are supported hy so small a majority. tnd they are so po?v' r'u y n-siii'edby their old opponent m. i? li their new recruits that I hey will not risk, by the io-s of the disputed territory. giving to their enemies a new point of attack. ?The English people wsre never mure sensible of the value of our commercial intercourse with thein than at present, and they seem already to have forgotten the ef fervescencp to which the Maine question gave occasion in Congress. 1 had a striking proof of this friendly feeling at the meeting of the British Association in 1! r iiiingh mi. At a great public dinner, the speech of the American Min-'ster, on his health being drunk, was v. - loomed with the m^st cordial greetings, was accorn f> .t ied by bud and frequent cheerii g, and followed by to. most deafening applause.
