Activity of the slave trade.

--A late dispatch from the English Commissary, Judge Crawford, at Havana, just presented to both Houses of Parliament, states ‘"that the slave trade continues to be carried on from this island upon the most extensive scale, and that, so far from it having become odious in the opinion of the public, there are more persons, even of capital and influence, engaged in it than ever."’ This traffic is now confined to certain narrow geographical limits in Africa, is prosecuted to supply only one market, Cuba, and is carried on largely under one flag, the American.
