French ExpOHltJon of nwliery.
The present Emperor cf 1 race ii? famous for
criginaiing gigantic schec&ea of one kind cr
another ; and a talismanic na:e hus, thus far,
eered to tbrow around every enterprioe of his,
&t least in the eyes of hia eubj'-cta, eotce eclat,
vhethcr iaeritt-d or not. At one time it is a
foreign colonization scheme or a plan fur ter
ritorial aggrandizement ; at another the arts
of j-eace are glorified ; hut always lie e--in.s am
bitious of initiating or forwarding beneficent
enterprise s for the good of hia people, and at the
same time keeping in view the strengthening of
bin pofeition and the adding of lustre to the name
The latent project of the kind we have seen
i.-j bhaJowed forth in a circular, kindly furnished
us by Mona. Deenoycrs, Commissioner and Con
sul of France at this port, and issued, with ier
lui.ssion of tlie French ( Jovernment, by a Sei
entific Society of Areachon," for the purpose
of inaugurating an Exposition of Fishery and
Aquaculture," (the culture of everything useful
in water,) at the liaain d'Arcachon, to W
opened in July, lbCC, and to last not less than
one nor more than three months.
Areachon is selected because of the perfection
the science of pisciculture baa attained there,
also for its agreeableness and its favorable loca
tion for communicating with all parts of France
by eea or rail. The celebrated Basin of Area
chon is situated on the eea, a little south of
west from Bordeaux, not at the mouth of the
Garonne, but among a labyrinth of inlets at
the embouchure of the little river Legre, and is
connected with Bordeaux by rail, and from
there with all southern France by rail as far as
Toulon, and with northern France by the same
means through Angoulerae, Poitiers, Tours,
Orleans and Paris. Areachon has no equal in
natural means of producing fish. Besides the
open sea and bays, it posHesi-es salt- and fresh
water ponds, lakes, rivers and streamlets in
The object of the Exhibition is to collect and
arrange for use every species of information
connected w ith fishery and aquaculture, and to
claim, at the ' Exposition Universelle," to be
held in Paris in the summer of 18G7, a special
department for it there as one of the great in
dustries of France and the world. The circular
fctates that nothing of the kind ever yet gained
entrance at the "World Exhibitions, save some
fish-nets and lines at London in 1802. The
circular states that, as yet, we know compar
atively nothing in regard to the resources of the
eea and inland waters as means of human sub
sistence, and much less in regard to cultivating
and obtaining that wealth.
The science of Aquaculture comprises within
its province every species of useful substances
obtained from water, such as fish, shell, oil,
minerals, manure, corals, frogs, limu, aqua-
flora, 5cc, &c. Doubtless all lovers of fish and
limu here will await eagerly the results of the
labors at Areachon.
There is to be an 41 Exhibition of Instruments
cf Fiihcry at Bergen. .Norway, at the same
time, as was formerly done in Holland, and with
which Societies thn of Areachon is connected.
The Fishery part of the Exhibition comprised
every imaginable urticle connected with obtain
ing tin wealth of the ditp, from a thing-utu-bob
and boat model to a steam whaler and equip
ments, all of vrhich are earnestly solicited, and
vvili probably le there; and it will pay a
shrewd Yankee whaleiunn to make tho exhibi
tion a visit, as well a$ the cod and maekercl
men, who doubthss will be represented. The
general regulations, comprising forty articles
and a table of twenty clas-sos, are too lengthy
for insertion in our columns, but it is to be
hoped the Government organ will insert them,
since, by its obstinate persistence against en
cumbering its columns with advertisements, it
has abundance of space that cannot be better
occupied. However, any one desiring informa
tion, can obtain it, no doubt, from the Commis
sioner of France at this Court.
The Ancient Agricultural Inspector and
Imperial Commissioner at the London Exhibi
tion," Paul Lacoin, is Director, to whom ad

A Defense or the Hub." New York papers
are very fond of eneer'iDg allusions to Boston as a
provincial city," etc., and lose no opportunity of
belittling it by comparison with tbe glory and grand
eur of the metropolis. Tbe Post of Saturday la9t
has a capital article in retort, which contains a most
amusing mixture of fact and fiction. The Post snya :
The city of New York 19 a tributary to Tri-Moun-taic.
and in a great measure dependent on Bosron
for her pesition and prosperity. One cannot walk
her business Mrt-ets, where her largest firms are loca
teJ, without noticing that many of our Boston firms
have sent their clerks or junior partners to that city
and established jobbing houses in connection with
tbeir wholesale establishments. New York may pro
perly be called tbe retail department of Boston's busi
ness. We applaud thei-e efforts (to aggrandize their
own cities) of the local press, and only have to say
that Boston, as the hub of the universe, is too secure
of ber proud position to feel any emotions but those
of pleasure at these striviDgs on the part of other
cities to rival her."
TnADDEcs Stephens os Reconstruction. Tbe
venerable Father of the House" made a speech
recently at Lancaster. Pa , which he said :
National Government should accept the pesition ia
which the S.utbern States placed themselves as
severed from the Union," (not constitutionally and
rightfully petered, be it observed.) and treat and
bell them as conquered territory. If, in spite of
their rebellion, they are still States urithin the Union,
then he maintains that the National Government has
no power to interfere with their domestic institution
or dictate terras of reconstruction. If, on the other
ban I, they are regarded as conquered territory,
tbea all things which we can desire to do, follow
with logical and legitimate authority. As conquered
territory. Congress would have full power to legislate
for them; for the territories are not under the Consti
tution, except eo far as the express power to govern
them is given to Congress. They would be heid in a
territorial condition until they are fit to form state
constitutions, republican in fact, not in form only,
and ak admission into the Union as new states. If
Coogres approve of their constitutions, and think
they have done works meet for repentance, they
would be admitted new states. If their constitu
tions are not approved cf, they would be sent back,
until they have become wise enough so to purge their
oli laws as to eraJicate every despotic and rcvolution-

Ky the President :
W. II. Seward, Secretary d State.
The Andersonville jailor Wirz has been found
guilty of murder, and sentenced to be bung,
which probably took place about Nov. 12. The
following refers to him :
A special dispateh to the Tribune, dated the Sth
November, says : All day workmen have been busy
erecting the pillows, under the supervision of Provost-Marshal
Russell, for the execution of AVirz.
A curious multitude thronged the. otlices, applying
for passes to see the execution. The Press will he
supplied, and a few other curious ones will be ad-mitu-d.
Mr. Schade, in an interview with the Presi
dent, showed six affidavits from Union prisoners
impeaching the testimony of a witness claiming to
be a grandson of Lafayette, asserting he wits a
common Jew from New York. The same witness
swore h? saw Wirz murder men in the stockade.
Wirz still maintains an air of sangfroid.
The trial of JelT. Davis ia promised, as it has
been f.r vcme time ; but now we have it some
what in. .re definitely. The National Intelligencer
announres that the President had iufct a.ured a
visiting delegation that complete arrangements
had been made for the ea,rly nnd legal trial of
Davis according to the laws of the land." This
unnoun cement was evidently made by authority
f..r the purpose of antagonizing the Chase pro
position and the accompanying statement of an
" iinprefcsion that he will be released."
The HuiW's -"pedal dispau h says Chief Justice
Chase Las notified the President, that be cannot
preside over the Court for the trial of Jell' Davis in
hichmoiid. the leason being there is no regularly
organized Court ia that city. The President main
tains be cannot he tried at any other place. Tbe
impression is that he will he released. This, we
presume, relates to Jeff Davis. Ens. Alta.
New Yokk. Oct. 31. The steamer Massachusetts.
which has just arrived at Philadelphia from Key
West, reports a tremendous gale on the 22d.
Every vessel except the Massachusetts went ashore
in the harbor.
The hurricanes which have raged along the
whole Atlantic seaboard during the past week,
are the heaviest known for twenty years. Over
100 vessels, large and small, so far as reported,
were driven ashore, wrecked, or foundered at sea.
All the seaboard towns experienced great damage.
Many lives have been lost at sea nearly 200, so
far. being reported.
New Yokk. Nov. 8. Havana dates of the 28th
state that a severe hurricane, on the 22d. and 23d,
raged with great force all over the island. In
Havana harbor many vessels drifted foul of the
wharves ami sunk. The Admiral's flag-ship rau
into the wharf, damaging several schooners and
boats. Several launches with cargoes sunk, tvtid a
total of ."() vessels were more or less damaged.
The streets of tLe city were tilled with water to the
depth of a foot. Houses and walls were blown
down, roofs blown away, and the trees of the pal
aces prostrated. Two-thirds of the roof of the
theatre was torn off. The country seats of the
Captain-General and others suffered considerably.
The steamer Mora Castle, from Havana, brings
the following : The United States steamers llhotle

In Massachusetts, only one Democratic Sena
tor was elected in tbe entire State. Gen. Banks
has Ix'en returned to Congress as Representative,
to fill the vacancy lately made by the resigna
tion of Mr. Gooch. Banks has been Speaker of
the House of Representatives, and may be again ;
but the probability is that Colfax, who was the
last Speaker, will be chosen.
New Yokk, Oct. Ml. The Fenian Senate contin
ued their session to-day. The proceedings were
secret, but it was reported that atrents were to be
sent to Ireland at once, to organize for the great
revolution which it is believed will take a practi
cable shape in a short time. It is also said that
the Fenians have received the endorsement of offi
cials in this country, whose names will lend not
only inspiration to" the movement, but will be a
guarantee ot success.
It i reported that Hampton Roads will soon be
the rendezvous of a large nnd important fleet of
naval vessels. Tho steamer Vanderbilt, and the
monitor which arrived there on Saturday, are the
pioneers of this maritime gathering at this point.
It ia said the vessels are to be dispatched to squad
rons in different parts of the world.
British naval vessels on the Pacific have been
ordered to cruise for the Shenandoah and hand her
over to the American authorities. If she resii.
; they are to sink ber without giving quarter.
The European news j-os--ses more than U6i:al i
int-rest. The Fenian movement creates much !
unca?iaes3 ia England and Ireland, where arrests
are daily made, and th jso found guilty thieat
ened with death. The " guilt,'' however, cou
siatj not in actually taking up arms, but in
beiue suspected of sympathy with the Fenian
Brotherhood. Had the American Government
dealt as promptly and as severely with the ad
vocates of Southern treason, when they defied
the Government iu the Halls of Congress had it
hanged Davis, Hunter, Breckinridge &. Co.
then, it might have saved four years of blood
shed. But Southern sympathizers in Europe
would have cried, oh, shame ! And so, far more
justly, Americans may cry to England, oh,
ehame ! if these threats are carried out.
The idea that the Irish people, without force
or means of any kind, and shut out by sea from
all foreign aid, can raise even a finger against
the colossal power of England, is so supremely
ridiculous, that the thought of hanging or shoot
ing an Irishman for wishing his country to be
free appears the climax of barbarity.
The death of Lord Palmerston occurred on Ihe
ISth of October, and -was not an unlooked
for event. He had reached that age when
a man's tenure of life is very frail, and had
for some time given tokens of early decease.
He possessed, in a preeminent degree, the niect
and veneration of the English people. A ple
beian by birth, he rose by his own talent to the
highest position that earthly ambition can covet,
and, for a term of years almost unprecedented,
controlled the destiny of the greatest and ruoet
extensive Monarchy that baa ever existed on
this earth. He will probably be succeeded by
The claim of the American Government on
England for reparation for losses by the pirate
cruisers, fitted out iu England, which is now
being pressed with some earnestness, creates con
siderable discussion in England. There can be
no question that, on general principles of inter
national law. a nation is responsible for the de
predatory acts of its subjects committed against
another, with which she is at peace, even though
she may use all ordinary means to prevent such
acts. There is an important principle involved
in the question, which should be decided once
for all. For if English subjects can fit out, arm
and sell cruisers to rebels in arms against any
government, American citizens can and will be
allowed to fit out, arm and sell cruisers to Irish
or Fenian rebels in arms against the British Gov
ernment. The principle involved ia the same in
either case, and in our opinion the United States
would be responsible for the damage to British
commerce under such circumstances, as tho
British Government is now justly responsible in
the present case.
In the spoliation claims against the French
Government, which arose during the war of
1S12 to 1818, the American Government insisted
on reparation, which the French Government as
firmly resisted. At last, about the year 1828
or 1S30 the French Government instructed its
Minister to inquire of President Jackson, in a
personal interview, whether he really insisted
on the claim being paid. The old General, with
that firm voice and eye which characterized him
when he was fairly roused nod in earnest, an
swered, By the Eternal, fche shall pay or fight."
When' the answer wa& renorted to the French
j Cflbinet tne clttini8 were paid without any
furtil0r jarky B;ncerely hope that no
i trouble mav arise from the Alabama and She-
r,andoa!i claims, nut ot tneir justness, there i
not a shadow of doubt. And the American
Government is iu earnest in its claim.
Fuiopean DuKs lu Oclobt r 2H,
New York. Oct 81. The steamer City of Boston,
from Liverpool the I8th and Queeusfown the 19th,
Lord Palmeratun, who had been seriously ill from
the effects of a col l several days, died at half-past
nine on tbe morning of the 18th. Business oa the
Stock Exchange an.l other quarters was suspended,
and a deep and universal regret was expressed by
all parties at his loss. Earl Russell will probably
succeed him. Lord Clarendon taking the Foreign
Office ; but nothing official has transpired.
Files by the steamer Africa have been received,
which contain further information in regard to the
Adam9-Russell correspondence. The London JVU'S
says it should not be forgotten that the claims made
by Spain against the American Government, under
similar circumstances, were only settled by treaty ;
while those made by Portugal furnished material for
argument for over thirty years. If Powers such as
Spain and Portugal, in like circumstances, felt
themselves bound to keep up a discussion until tbey
obtained some sort of a settlement, it is not probable
that the United States will follow a different course.
Assuredly Lord Russell's refusal to refer the mat
ters now in dispute, will not settle them with Morse
&. Smith. ?
The Times says it is just possible to avoid the
payment of 2,000,000 in money, but we may lose
our opposition on a principle so unmistakable as to
cause ue. when tbe cases are reversed, and when the
Americans are neutrals and we are belligerents, to
suffer terribly in person and pocket. We don't ap
prehend war, for war in these days could not arise
out of this business, but something nearly as bad
may arise in future, when the practice we have de
fended may be turned against us in ways that are
hideous even to surmise.
The Star says Earl Ruseell is anxious to save the
Maritime Powers from responsibility for injury which
tbeir subjects may have unadvisedly caused to bel
ligerents, and has taken a dangerous ground for

endeavoring to quiet tbe mouth of Mr. Adams, by
quoting what his grandfather said and did fifty
years ago, but, at the same time, security to com

New Yobk, Nov. 2. The London Times of Oct.
18tb, says : We are sure our Government may de
pend upon the support of the nation in maintaining
the position it has taken up. If the American Gov
ernment is determined to seek a quarrel with us, we
cannot have one in which our rights are clearer or
more unquestionable. If it ia not, we ehall have
saved ourselves, by the firm stand we are making,
from great degradation, and vindicated, for the ben
efit of all mankind, that neutral position eo peldom
occupied by Great Britain in wars of the past, and
so often, wc trust, to be bers in wars cf tbe future.

It bas been decided, by the express wishof Queen,
Yictoria, that Lord Palmerston Bhould be honored
with a public funeral in Westminster. Most of the
towu3 will be represented by deputations. Business
in London was to be almost entirely suspended, and
the Stock Exchange closed.
No official announcement has been made concern
ing changes in tbe Cabinet, but official announce
ment will be made after Palmerston's funeral.
The Globe says tbe Queen has expressed a wish
that Earl Russell would accept tbe Premiership.
Earl Russell has received cordial assurances cf sup

that Lord Clarendon will tale tbe Foreign Office ;

The Tiruti, which at first favored Glaiton. has
rather vtred round, making It appear that tti only
reason and necessity for Earl Rurweli'a appoiutti.e :.t
was because England bad still to settle with Atneiict

base compliance or a needless war. Viewed in this
light, be w3 necessary.
Tbe Paris correspondent of tbe Timet reiterates
the suteuoer.t thnt Mr. Secretary Seward wat a ciis
patch to the French Government, Tbe African pro

owing to ihe insurrection ia tbe South, ttoeps could
not be spared, so tlie project fell through.
Ia regard to the rumored complications in French
and American affairs, the Itiitptndauct Bele says :
It is tbe intention of the French Government noi to
continue the occupation of Mexico beyond what i
absolutely necessary, and thereby remove all caue cf
dispute with the United States. This is more desira
ble than ever, and it is even said that Ihe speech from
the Throne, al the next meeting of tbe French Cham
ber, will announce the immediate ev&cuatiou if
Mexico by the French troops.
A Belgium paper of tbe 284 says : Negotiations
are completed for the new corps of Belgiuu troops for

Halifax, Nov. 17. The Cuba from Liverpool vn

Lord Palmerston was buried at Westminster Abbey
on tbe 27th. The Queeu and Cabinet were present.
Parliament and tbe diplomatic body were largely
represented. Immense crowds thronged the streeti
through which the funeral procession passed.
Tbe Times accepts the reconstructed Cabinet as a
necessity. It acknowledges that Earl Hussell ban
some genius and a deal of political experience, but
regrelB it should be necessary to refer to politics more
than seventy years old. The Times would rather
bave another Premier, but is content to admit for
the time that Russell is invaluable. Premiers should
be chosen from the Commons, especially when so
many have been peer?. The Times cannot look upon
