The character or the ncwa so far as it
relates to French affair, will wo think, be
contidercd conclusive as regards the pay.
ment of the stipulated indemnity. All
question as to the intention of France on
that subject, must now be remove J; and
the most sceptical can no longer doubt, that
he has determined not to do us justice
without a degrading apology from our Ex
cutive. It only rem nun Tor us therefore,
to resort to e non-inltrcourie ; and if for to
doing, Fra.nct should venture upon a dec
Uralion of war, wo must abide the conse
quences'. We deprecate as sincerely, as
any one possibly can, a war with Franco ;
but if she will not comply with her solemn
treaty stipulations, we are prepared to urge
upon our Representatives in Congress the

Vice Admiral Mackau has recently bean appoint
ed lolhe command of our Weil-Indian station, and
the Government of Martinique. This is nn np

between France and the United Suites. No one if

INTERESTING FROM PARIS.
The following letter of a verv recent
date from our correspondent will be read
with great interest. lie is at present in
Paris, and will keep us advised of the move
ments and (peculations there with refer
ence to our present relatons. Implicit
confidence may be placed in the state
ments of this gentleman, and his opinions
and speculations are those of a judicious
and reflecting man. Boston Alias.
Paris, Dec. 1, 1035.
When this letter reaches you, you will
be as anxious In learn tho impression tho
President s communication to Lotigros hits
made here, ns wc art; now to n-ceruin its
tone and recommendations. No one anti
cipates tnal the President will offer any di
rect apology to the French Government.
No American wishes it. But should he
with his message lay before Congress tho
closing letter of Mr. Livingston, with Ins
approbation of its positions, it is thought
here that ll win tie no ungraualion lo tue
country and all that the t rench govern.
mem can reaeonauiy require, it winter
lainly he satisfied with nothing less. In
stead of this, and from some dark nnd not
very discreet remarks which our Charge is
reputed to have made, wc arc led to anttct
pate it, should the President indulge in his
former indiscreet and insulting tune, Ihe
door of reconciliation is closed, and n most
ridiculous and dUa'-troiischnpter will be ad
ded to our own and French diplomacy,
The spectacle will be exhibited to the worltl
ot two great nations, once allies and now
professing a mutual respect for each other,
engaging in a war which mu.-t prove du
a6trous to the commerce or bulli, and in
vnlve the destruction of thousand') of lives
and millions of property on a mere point
of etiquette. It is a pity that old Tallev
rand cant extricate the French cabinet from
the snarl they have got into or the olain
common sensu of another Franklin break
through the court forms in which our re
sequences, have been seriously discuod
hero lor the past week. 1 no prospect, ot
such an alliance has given the war question
a more serious aspect and a much more
favorable one for the United States. But
no one who understands the long settled
policy of our government not toform any
entangling connections with foreign pow
ers, can give the least credit to what is
said. At thu same time I knew the fact
that the Emperor Nicholas has expressed
himself in tho most friendly language to
wards the United Stales to such Americans
as have been presented to him, and that
during his late visit to Germany he openly
declared to an American hi intention to
place uttr commerce on moro favorable
footing than that of any European nation,
lie hat been loner anticipating a war with
England or France and 1 havo no doubt
one object of his late visit to Austria and
Prussia, was to secure tho countenance or
entire neutrality of those governments. His
connection with the house of Brandburgh
by marriage, renders him almost suro of
Prussia, and his unstinted distribution of
Russian orders and badges, and, what is
moro effectual, of Russian gold, among
Austrian officers and regiments, has, to
my knowledge, left a most favorable im
pression behind him in the right quallei.
His feelings too have been deeply exal
peiated by tho insulting and galling tone
ot the bnglisii and trench papers.
All this renders it hiihlv probable that
should we be actually involved in a war
with France, which looks likely to bo of
long continuance, Russia would make a
diversion in our favor. That is the opinion
here and if we are once at war, on s
point of etiquette, it will prove n long one.
unless the people, whose lives and property
are thu made the snort of ru'ers, decide
nt hcrwise. And it is to be feared that their
pride would voon gel involved, and then
peace can only come from the intervention
of some neutral power, for Ihe point of et
iquette will grow moro formidable after a
few soro defeats on either side. And whv
can't the difficulty be adjusted now by the
same means which must finally bo cnectu
al ? Let us hone thai it mav be.

Congress to'day has been supplicated by
the abolitionists af Mass. through Mr.

Adams moved that the House receive the
memorial, and gave notice that, in ca?c
his motion was accecded to, he would then
move that il be laid upon the table. This
was as much as the south could at this mo
ment expect, and next to a vote expressing
the inexpediency of legislating upon the
subject, would, 1 think, tend to soothe ex.
c'ncil feelings in all quarter. However.
Mr Glascnck.of Ga. opposed warmly thn in

The feasibility of gucIi investments cannot
be doubted at the present day, and their
important bearing on the interests of agri
culture arc too well appreciated to need il
lustrating. The interests of agriculture
and manufactories are mutual, and should
go hand in hand. It is therefore peculiar
ly appropriate that Farmers should invest
a portion of their surplus profits in building
up those hives of industry, upon which
alone they can rely for a continuance of
their present unbounded properi'y.
