The Rev. Dr. W. Burgess, Presby
terian minister, of Miss., will preach in
Trenton to-morrow (Thursday) night.
He will preach at this place, at the
Union Church, Friday night, and also
on Sunday, at 11, A. M.
The telegraphic reports to-day sum
up over three thousand words, necessi
tating the exclusion of very near all
other original matter. The Senate de
bate on yesterday will be found very
interesting and suggestive. The Re
publican Senators seem to have for
gotten that there are hundreds of thou
sands of people in the South who are no
less traitors than Gen. Lee was, and
yet this government does nothing to
perpetuate its power or magnify its
greatness or splendor, without predicat
ing large expectations upon the wealth,
resources and gallantry of these identi
cal " traitors." There is something
wrong in republican institutions if such
apparent contradictions are logical andt

NEW YORK, Dec. 14.-The Herald's
special, Havre, of the 10th, says:
Excitement over the reported mutiny
in fleet. Sailors refusing to go to Cher
hourg, shots were fired, some of which
-truck the forecastle of the Shenandoah.
The advance on Havre was a feint
to cover the attack on Cherbourg. The

The World's special, Tours,of the 11th,
A dispatch from Gen. De Chansey
says the result of the four days' fighting
near Beaugerrey, was substantially a
French victory. The Army now holds
positions only 5 miles distant from those
held on the 7th. Three French corps
clo'e at. hand. French loss not greater
than that of Prussians.
VERSAILLES, Dec. 8.-Summons to
surrender flatly refused. It is doubted
whether the threatened bombardment
can be effected, as no guns are in posi
tion, though 1000could soon be mount
ed, if the forts permit. Three hundred
guns could be placed in position during
the night, but forty guns would silence
them at dawn.

arepreparing to occupy Luxemberg.
The occupation is sanctioned by the
King of Holland.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Dec. l.--The Di
plomatic negotiations between Russia

tion is again agitated. The Russian

further annulments. England is tak
ing precautionary measures.
