ENGLISH NEWS to the 13tii OCTOBER.
Tue Revenue.-The return of the Revenue for the year ending October 10, shows the total to be £-19,765,417 against £50,202,814 in the previous year. The Times romnrks in1 its review :-" In the comparison of the whole year just ended with that ending October 10, 1851. tho Customs show a decrease of £84,752, a figure very far below the estimate of the reductions recently come into force In the Exeiso there is an increase of .£114,185 ; and in stamps, of £133,932. The decrease un- der the taxes gives us at least a near approxi- mation to the loss sustained by the subntitu tion of the inhabited house duty for the win- dow tax. It is £1,157,201 ; about what was anticipated. The year's property tax exhibits an increase of £53,(538-some comfort to those who rend in the declining receipts of this tax the approaching ruin of England. The year's receipts under the Post Office, the Crown Lands, . and Miscellaneous items, are se- verally £26,000, £50,000,_ and £130,000 moro than in the previous year. In the year's ordinär)' revenue there is thus u net decrease oí £733,941, which, though a large sum, is less than half the estimated loss by the repeal of the window duties and the other remissions lately come into operation. On taking into account the extraordinary item», this decrease is reduced to £437,397, owing to the repayment of advances, a matter on which the pansies assisted with loans, as well as the public, cannot be too warmly congratulated. Wo presume that wo shall not now have the improvement of the country' denied simply because there is a decrease at the foot of the columns. No reasonable being can expect taxes to be lopped oft' by millions at a time, and the revonue to be wholly unaffected. If tho lpss to the revenue is much loss than the gain to the public, that is all the prosperity we can possibly desire ; it is at least all that our financiers ever reckoned upon.

HOW THEY PUNISH TREASON IN PERSIA. We mentioned a few days since the attempt against the Shah of Persia. We now learn that Hajee Suleiman Khan, accused as the in stigator of the crime, was seized, his body pain fully drilled with a knife in parts which would not at the moment cause death; pieces of lighted candles were then introduced into the holes, and, thus illuminated, carried in proces- sion through the bazaar, and finally conveyed to the town gates, and there cleft in twain like
a fat ram. The Kurret-il-Ain, better known as Bab s Lieutenant, or the Fair Prophetess of Kazoeen, who since the late religious outbreak had been kept a close prisoner at the capital
has been executed with some dozen others. His Majesty received three slug wounds in the shoulders, but all of a very slight nature.
