FOREIGN NEWS. Great Britain and Ireland. Mr. King, our minister to England, arrived at Liverpool on the 29th June.

The following, among other bills, have received the assent of the king of England: The bill to reduce the duty on newspapers; the ware-housing cora bill; the Atlantic steam-navigation bill; the Canada corn-trade bill; the Canada tenures bill, and the bill regulating the hours of labor in cotton-mills.

(We are not acquainted with the general principles of these bills--but tbey are, probably, interesting to us.]

On the second reading of the quarantine bill in the house of lords, lord King contended "that the plague could not be contagious, since it was well known that when it ceased it ceased suddenly, at its greatest height, and when, if it were contagious, it must necessarily spread itself more widely, instead of disappearing. There was, he said, full as much evidence to prove the existence of witchcraft,as there was to provc that the plague was contagious.”

Mr. Hume had introduced his motion, respecting the established church of Ireland, and concluded his speech with two resolutions, the substance of which was-Ist, that the church property was public property, and disposable by the legislature for the good of religion and of the community at large; 2nd, that the house would, in the course of next session, inquire whether the establishment of the church of Ireland was not out of proportion to the services performed.

The duke and dutchess of Northumberland had returned to England.

Thc rector of Lincoin college bad returned thanks to the duke of York and bishop of Osnaburgh, for his celebrated “So help me God” speech, by sending him a fine live turtle, inscribed to "his royal highness, the duke of York, the magnanimous champion of church and king, from the rector of Lincoln college, Oxford.”

Lord Cochrane, in a Brazilian frigate, has arriv. ed at Portsmouth, England. He was saluted by the forts; and, when he landed, checred by the people.
