BoRHEAix, Feb. 1. It i3 reported here that Man
teuffel lias refused to recognize the armistice, and
disregarding the protests of the French Commander
has continued hostilities by which he has forced
the French Army of the East to surrender or re
treat into Switzerland. General Clinchart. who
now commands the Army of the East, has con
cluded a Convention with the Swiss authorities,
and crosses into Switzerland with the whole army

Bordeaux, Feb. 2 The Government at Bor
deaux has just issued a decree ordering elections
for the National Assembly to be held on the 8th
inst. It disqualifies for election to the Assembly

oRicets, or candidates in past elections, or held
office as Ministers. Senators, or Councillors of
State under the Empire, and Prefecls who have
accepted office between the 2d of December, 1S51,
and the 4th of September, 1878.
London. Feb. 2. Gatnbetta is said to have an
expectation of forming an offensive alliance against
Germany with Italy and Austria, if France be
pushed to the wall. All indications continue to
favor the probability that Southern France will
refuse to have peace on the terms reported to
have been proposed.
The attitude of Austria, as evinced by Baron
Von Beust in his speech to the Hungarian Parlia
ment, reveals the intention and understanding of
that Empire and I'ussia to occupy all the territory
they may want which has heretofore been held by
Turkey, and that Germany consents to their con
trol ol the East, if she be undisturbed in her occu
pation of the West.
A sensational telegram states that President
Grant has determined to adopt Ben Butler's pro

make an imperative demand for a settlement.
The House of Representatives had on Feb. 1,

It was rumored that the President would veto it.

The S. F. Chronicle of Jan. 31. says :
The Hot-KS for the Steamship Slbsidt. Our
latest advices from Washington indicate that there
aie but few hopes entertained of the passage of the
proposed sub-idy to the Australian line of steamers.
The announcement of this not anticipated result will
be received on the Pacific coast with much dissat
istaction. Com. S. E. Woodw n th died at San Francisco,

Washixutox, Feb. 3. On a motion, in the Sen
ate, to postpone for the pres-'nt a bill for a subsidy
! to a New Orleans and .Mexican line ol steamers.
Mr. Williams hoped the vote would be a test of the
Senate not to legislate further upon the question
of steamboat subsidies. The motion was carried,
28 to 24.
New York, Feb. 2. A San Domingo correspon
dent writes on the 11th ult. that annexation is met
with violent opposition by the opponents of Baez;
that Cabral and his adherents are very active; that
he has four armies in the field, ready to act against
Baez; that the principal cities are opposeu to annex
ation, and fully determined to test the protectorate
of the United States to the Baez Government, and
declare themselves prepared to try conclusions with
United States gunboats at once, rather than submit
or wait any longer ; and that it is not improbable
tbey will commit some act and endeavor to bring
matters to an end.
The M'orWs Washington correspondent telegraphs
that it is understood in Washington that a thorough
reorganization of the President's Cabinet will be
made on March 4th. Senator Morton will be made
Secretary of State, and Gov. Morgan will probably
have a seat. All the present members except Delano
San Domingo will very shortly be overshadowed by
the Alabama claims, and a grand effort made to huve
the question settled forever upon a basis more humil
iating to Great Britain than tearing up the treaty of
185G by Russia, and then asking England's consent
if she may do so. Not only Fish, but Boutwell is to
leave the Cabinet, and an entire reconstruction of the
Cabinet is announced at the opening of the new Con
gress. Several names are mentioned in connection
with the Treasury, but the great railroad men boast
that Jay Cooke is the coming man, and that their in
terests will be well represented near the White House.
It is also said Jay Cooke's chances are the best, as
the President places great faith in McCullough's
financial ability, and relies upon having the indirect
advantage of his counsel through Cooke, who is now
McCulloch's partner. The new Cabinet will be an
nounced probably two weeks hence.
The nomination of Cramer (Grant's brother-in-law)
as Minister to Denmark, was not confirmed by the
Senate yesterday. Sumner objected, saying the Com
mittee on Foreign Relations have been several months
inquiring into this nomination, and all that they can
find is that this nominee is a brother-in-law of the
President and wholly unfit for the position.
