Nac- York, Jan. 12 Tlte pack ets Florida ami Hudson have come up this morning so rapidly alter each other, that we have found it impossible to keep pace with the important news they have brought. Jiy these arrivals copi ous Hies of papers to the 16th Dec. inclusive have been received. These papers contain the high ly importantintelligcnee, that in consequence of the invasion oi Portugal by Spanish troops, in conjunction with the Portuguese rebels, supplied by Spaing the Princess Regent had applied to England for assistance. This fact was communicated to both houses of Parliament, by a Royal mes sage, on the 11th of December. On the 12th, an answer to the ad dress was moved in the House of Lords, by Earl outburst, and in the House of Commons by Mr. Canning. At the close of the dis cussion which took place in the House of Commons, upon a motion- by My. Canning. th nhiprt y , ot which was to pledge the House to support hfs 'Majesty in any ihcasure for the presi n ation and ucfare of Portugal Mr. Can ning, in the course .of his remarks observed: "The. object of this measure is not tear. The object of this mea sure is to take the last chance of peace. If England does not promptly go to the aid of Portugal, Portugal will be trampled upon, and then war will come come, too, in the train of degradation. If we wait until Spain have cour age to ripen her secret machina tions into open hostility, we shall have war we shall have the war of the pacificators, and who then can say when that war will end." The motion was carried with only 3 or 4 dissentients in the House of Lords it passed unani mously. The British troops were mov ing with as much promptness as the ministry have acted. The Courier says: the amount of force which will be despatched in the first instance, and .upon the emer gency of the occasion, is 5000. Of the troops composing this force, there are to be four squad- which indicates that it is not con templated their services will be confined to garrison duty only. The London papers speak of this measure as though it were an actual declaration of war against Spain, and from the tone of some of them, one would suppose that there Was io be a speedy and gen eral convulsion of the political ele ments of Europe, Asia, and Afri ca. The Morning Herald savs: ses. A plan for attaining this ob ject will be presented to you.

Again, in another paragraph, the same paper continues: "We would ask whether 5000 English troops are a match, in Portugal, for 50 or 100,000 French j and bpamsh troops.
