The Chinese treaty has actually arrived in England. The Locust

steamer, which left Malta on the 27th, reached Devonport yesterday, having on board Major Malcolm, Secretary of Legation, the bearer of the treaty, and Commander Richards, of the Queen's ship Cornwallis, the bearer of despatches from Vice-Admiral Sir William Parker, for the Admiralty. Major Malcolm also brings a letter of assent from the Emperor himself, solemnly engaging to ratify the treaty as soon as it shall be returned to him with the signature of Queen Victoria attached to it. The treaty bears the signatures of the three Chinese High Com- missioners. The Blonde, Captain Bourchier, had sailed from China with 2,500,000 dollars. In consequence of special orders from London, pratique was granted very shortly after the steamer's arrival, and the two gentlemen set off for London.
