THE VIRGINIA. PANIC.
Yesterday afternoon a train on the Balti
more and Ohio R. It., vras boarded by the Vir
ginia Fencibles at ilarlinsburg station, and
three Cincinnati merchants were taken thence
.and imprisoned! The authority for this high
bonded act secras to have proceeded from Gen.
'Taliaferro. The alleged offence was that ono
•of the gentlemen bad remarked, doubtless in
jest, that the next train from Wheeling -would
"bring passengers enough to taJ;e tho State of
"Virginia. A lame apology, evidently indited
br tlie officers of tho Baltimore and Ohio R. B-,
forms the sequel te the outrage.

Chicago Hlvtorlcal Society.
The adjourned anuual meeting of this Society i
was held on theerening of the 29tli ult., at the
bouse of W. 11. Urowu, Esq.
The annual report of the Secretary com*
tneoccd with a comparison of the number of
literary and scientific associations in Chicago,
ten years since and now, consisting then of the
Young Men's Association, founded in IS4I, the
Mechanics' Institute in 3S-J2, the Kush Medical
College in 1543, and the Unircrsity of St.Mary'a
of the Lake, in 1644. To these are now added
the endowment of three Universities, the North
western, the Chicago, and the Liad—an academy
of Sciences, two new professional Schools, of
Madicinc and of Law, a College of Pharmacy,
mx charitable Eye aud Ear InGrmurr, besides
fire Theological Summaries. To these might
be properly added the Audubon Club, devoted
to tho birds and fauna of the North-West, and
several associations for professional culture—
forming, with our excellent system of public
school*, an imposing array of literary, scientific
«nd prufesMouul appliances, which our commu
uitv should be proud to cherish.
The reported additions for the year to the
Library of the Society reached the number of
«",054., luakiug the aggrcgute liS.&lti, —tbcuuiount
expended iu the purckasi of books hardly ex
ceeding one hundred dollars. The beautiful I
\*ork by Lord Kingsborougb, on the Antiquities I
of Mexico, a contribution for the year, was ex- i
liibited at the meeting.
The Secretary dwelt at some leugth on the
Society's efforts to procure suitable memorials
of the most distinguished founders of our State.
Besides huring already obtuiucd memoirs of
Dauiel I*. Cook, uud u partial cue of ilorrid
Hirkbeck; they urc now iu possession of en
extensive work on the life and times of the late
Gov. Edwards, and anticipate tho early comple
tion of similar tributes to Judge Tope and oth
ers. Allusion was made to the reviving interest
in historical inquiries in our State, as evidenced
bynauierous publications by coanty journals,
of couuty hiatoriey among which were named
2'eoria, and Schuyler Counties, and the
organization of Associations of " Old Settlers"
at Springfield and elsewhere.
The report proceeded to notice the late exhi
bition ot the Fine Arts in Chicago, towards
which the first meeting was held on the 22d of
March, the invitation to coutributors announced
the 12th of April, and the exhibition was
opened to the public the &th of May. The col
lections consisted cf twenty specimens of stat
uary, over 320 paintings in oil, with some twen
ty iii crayon, or water-colors. There were cat
alogued SCif works of art, from übout seventy
contributors. Tselve thousand persoDS
were registered as the wholo number cf
vUiiore, producing in gross receipts from
admission tickets and the sale of catalogues
; of which was expended
leaviug a surplus of SSID.44. By a vote of the
contributors, this amuuut was placed at the
disposal of Mr. Volk, the curator, to assist lii*
wish of revisiting Italy: the artist in return to
oxecnte a bust in marble, for the Library of the
Historical Society. Notice was taken in the re
port of the merit of the works ou exhibition, the
general favor with which it was received aud
its benefits in promoting a higher taste for art;
and the zeal, judgment aud fidelity of the cura
tor, on whom the chief executive labor had de
volved, wa« favorably referred to. Allusion was
also made to a tasteful model, moulded in clay,
which was exhibited at the meeting, and was the
work of an artist of this city.
The report closed with suggestions on the de
sirableness, at the favorable time, of adding to
the library a reading room, to be suitably deco
rated, and famished with the best select publi
cations of our modern literature,as they appear,
thus orgauizing an atheneum «s an appendage
of the bocitty.
The report of the Secretary was followed by
an address from I. X. Arnold, Esq., the principal
subject of which was M<igna Ck itta. Tuis inter*
csting paj>er,on a subject seldom brought to pub*
lie attention, recited the history of the origiu of
that celebrated charter ofEnglisli liberty, traced
the struggles which followed its graot'by King
John, and the influence of the provisions* as dis
played in the legislation and jurisprudence of
Great Britain, as well as the various declara
tions of rights proclaimed by the American
colonies organized iu the Declaration of Ameri
can Independence, and embodied in the institu
tions and laws of the several states of the Union,
including the State of Illinois. The address
presented an interesting contrast of the assem
blage of the Barons and Knights of England, ut
Kuoitvciede, in 1215, and the convention of tl.e
Cjugft-ssof the confederated Colonics, at In*
dct>?cdencc Hall, in Philadelphia in 1776.
At the close of Mr. Arnold's address, the Se:-
retary announced that intelligence had been re*
csire'd by telegraph of the death of Wa«hineton
Irving, u uame honored wberurcr the the Eng
lish tougue was spoken and known. As an ex
pression of the sentiments of our community,
on the occasion of an eveut so mournful, l.e
submitted the following resolution, which was
seconded by J. E. Wilkuis, Esq , British Consul
in this city, and then unanimously pa sed.

Tk« Execution of Brown—lt* Observ
ance In Wlaeoualn.
Priday, the second day of December, 1659.
will bcilio most important day that has dawned
upon the American people since the Fourth of
July, 177 G. True, there arc those who will sneer
at this assertion just as there were those who
sneered as the bells were rung wben Independ
ence was declared. On Friday next the "iloth
er or rnc Presidents," proposes to ring anoth
er bell for the liberty of the colored race. It
may civc out a polem'n sound, bat we must re
member that all great events have a solemn
birth, and it was a sober, solemn hand that
rolled the stone away frbm the place where the
body of the glorious Christ lay, and it takes a
sober band to roll awar the stone from the se
pulchre where four milfion« cf human beings lie
entombed in a living grave!
We noderstaud that a movement is on foot to
have a meeting on Friday next, at the Chamber
of Commerce, to observe the hanging of John
Bruwn. The hour has not been determined
upon, but it will probably take place at three

THE CITY.
Ertccnos or joqxßbowx!—Weare request
ed to state that there will be meetings for prav
erand addresses on the present aspect of the
anti-slavery cause, especially in view of the re
cent proceedings in Virginia, this (Friday)
evening, at 71 o'clock, in the First Congrega
tional Church (corner W. Washington and
Green streets) and in the Plymouth Cborch
(cArner Van Buren and Edina Place). " Re
member them that ore in bonds as bound with
them."
A^OTBEft—The German "Jefferson Club"
will hold a meeting at Kinzie Hall, Xorth Di
vision, this evening, to observe in an appropri
ate manner the death of John Brown. The
friends of universal freedom, German and Eng
lish, are invited to attend.
The Juvfebtz Case.—The defence closed
their testimony yesterday, andafew witnesses
were called and re-called by the people. " The
testimony will doubtless be finished to-day.
44 Comc Again Jack."—Jack Francis an old
habitne of Bridewell bas retained to his old
quarters on account of a high old drank. His
correspondents may address him as above for
ninety days.
n*p- *t»i.
Religiocs Lvtelliccxce.—The Church Jitcord
say 8 the Rev. Mr. Hodges bos accepted the call
extended to hiia by the Church of the Holy
Communion of this city, and will enter upon
bis duties immediately.
Pixstt OF OrEUA.—We shall have two Opera
companies, performing at the same time, in this
city, next week, to wit: the Parodi Italian Ope
ra Troupe at Metropolitan Hall, and the Lucf
Escott English Opera Company at McVicker's
Theatre.
Toe Late Gale.—We learn that in the terri
ble gale on the night of the 25th, the Chnrch of
the Holy Communion was seriously damaged.
A large part of the plaster was shaken off, and
some of the ribs of the ceiling were broken. It
will be rc-plastered at once.
" Uxsafb Bctldixgs."—By an inadvertence
the communication "Unsafe Buildings," in
tended for our last issue failed to appear, and
thus the comments with which which we had
accompanied it, came out companionless. We
call attention to the reply to Mr. Van Osdel's
late strictures npon our course in reference to
unsafe buildings. The writer, we can assure
Mr. V>n Osdel, knows what he is writing about.
Tub Weather.—Yesterday's weather was
bad, boisterous, breezy, as well as reeking,
rainy, wretched, with streets moist, muddy, and
miserable. Ont of door operations were at a
stand-still. Everybody that could do so re
mained in snug harbor. Those who went to
hear " Doesticks" at Metropolitan Hall last
evening had need of a liberal share of that they
wentto hear about— u Pluck."
Failure op Grain Operators.—Two opera
tors in grain abont the Galena depot, failed yes
terday for about half a bushel apiece. Their
names are James O'Martin and Nicholas Schuli.
Each did well in street operations, picking up
grain spilled about the track, but attempting to
handle grain (not their own) in the depot was
what caused their suspension. They were lev
ied on by the police and will go to the Reform
School. The warning is a salutary one to op'
rrators in cereals, aged twelve years or therea
bouts.
New Commission House.—Messrs. Watson V.
Coe £ Co. in another column make their an
nouncement of copartnership formed, and of
the field they are prepared to occupy among
our business community. Mr. Coe, the senior
of the house has a reputation, well and solidly
gained in our business circles, and in the new
firm are associated with him gentlemen of in
tegrity and enterprise, giving the house such
qualities as will make their services valuable to
all who may require the name in their depart*
raents of our produce and live stock markets.

Sambo. —"How docs dey, wat yon means,

Colo. —"Dey spells dat ole word wid a shiver

Sambo.—"Shire, eh. Speeder's cold chills."
Cato.—"No, scare, Sambo, bad scare."

(Both.—" Yo, ye, ya.")
Akmversaet Dlvxeb or tok St. Andrew's
Society.—This event took place at the Rich
mond House on Wednesday evening last.
About one hundred gentlemen were present.
The dinner was such as only mine hosts of the
Richmond can famish. Every delicacy which
the season affords was furnished in abundance,
and if the inner man was erer satisfied, it must
hare been on this occasion. At the conclusion
of the material ceremonies, the feast of reason
and flow of sonl commenced. After a few in
(roductory remarks by the President, J. R*
Valentine, Esq., the following toasts, inter*
spcrsed with speeches, songs, and music by the
band were oflered and received with decided
manifestations of pleasure and approbation.

Tih.—The Ladiie.
Responses were made to the various toasts
by Mayor Haines, John Henry Wilkins, Capt.
UcArtbnr, Robert Hervey,
Daniel Cameron, Recorder Wilson, Alderman
Alston, Robert Clark and others. Many of the
speeches were rery hsppy and elicited vocifer
ous approbation. Messrs. Frank Lnmbard,
Wood, and Ballingall were in their best roice
and gore their songs and glees with capital
eiTect. At about three hours "ayont the twai"
the party alter singing " Auld Lang Sync*'
separated with many expressions of delight
the entertainment had been in every re
spect a success.
Wans and Rcxors or Waes.—John Fagan
and Patrick Nugent, two of the roughs of soci
ety, in the course of their travels on Wednesday
night created a fiery trail of small but sharp
fights, and finally fell Into the hands of the po
lice. They were fined $lO each. Nugent is a
hack-driver. Fagan was anew " gent" in this
city, and being shown the elephant by his city
friend. He will remember the animal's tusks.
John Folgcr and Charles Mack fell fonl of
Robert Morley, inn keeper, on >"orth Clark
street, and gave him several proofs of their exu
berant muscle. Morley looked upon their exer
tions with scarcely an eye of favor, in fact with
two black eyes, and had them arrested. They
were fined $lO, which must be set down, from
the two instances last named, as the winter rate
for a moderate chnnk of a fight.
There never was but one of woman kind who
did not resent any and all invasions of the rights |
and rites of the laundry, and that was surely 1
mother Eve in the. happier ante-fig-leaf period.
Since then the tampering with clothes lines not
jour own, and stealing rain water, have been
capital and unpardonable crimes. Mrs. Bell
tore down the clothes line or her neighbor, Mrs.
Smith, and let the washing into the mud. "Who
: could blame Mrs. Smith for manifesting her in
dignation by striking that Bell with a dipper.
Then took plaee a fight which old Homer
would have made tfiree cantos of, first making
use of a canter to get out of. the way, for where
hot soap suds and a'wordy war are flying, look
out for scalds and squalls. The belligerent and
bellicose BeH was fined $S in yesterday's Police
Court. So the (clothes) lines after all did not
''fall to her in pleasant places.
ministry at Large.
We are decidedly opposed to street begging.
We deny that it is true charity to encourage,
aid or abet the importunate army of profession
al mendicants who scour the city, haunt area
doors, and carry their ever yawning baskets
into the kitchens of our city dames. We be
lieve that a large share are impostors, that the
tales they of woes at homes where they
claim famine sits hollow-cved, are bogus, that
a large share of the wholesome viands they beg
are wasted, that the old clothes charitably pas
sed over to their use, get pawned for ram or
cover idle and indolent forms luxuriating in a
coarse way over the often ample returns of
street begging. We believe that too many of
the wild Maggies and ragged Bobs that spend
their time In collecting cold victuals, represeu*
very little real destitution at home, that the pig
and the cow and the poultry and a whole family
of boarders feed on the bounty of our citizens.
We believe that several hundred day-laborerf,
mostly, we might say, all of Celtic extraction,
have left their wives and children In Chicago,
for the winter, to live by begging—the husband
and father at wages on some southern railroad
enterprise, at his regular toil with barrow
and sbovet That these families have regularly
and deliberately quartered themselves upon
our charitable citizens, and were the Relief So
ciety to go into operation, you should see its
rooms thronged day after day with the loud
voiced dames thus deserted, eager for fine flour,
tea, and sugar, and grumbling bitterly if these
be denied them. And we believe further of these
cormorant beggars, numbers are possessors of
houses and lots, and others would keep a
family of boarderson the proceed of their indus
try in asking alms. In a word we believe there
is a fearful amount of imposition abroad in the
land, and a liberal share in Chicago, and that
while real destitution pines and pales, and sick
ens and dies in its wretched garrai meekly
and uncomplainingly, loud-voiced brawling
mendicancy strong-armed leaps into the chan
nels of public and private charity, scoops up
the precious boon warm with the purest philan
thropy, tnd while it devours and wastes, asks
like Oliver 41 for more," or like the swine of
scripture turns and rends the giver, unless the
donation be doubled. This we believe. And
we farther believe that the Chicago Relief So
ciety will never again open, with spasmodic and
genorous though mistaken zeal, its general dis
bursing office for provender. Let us have no
more of such scenes where the strongest-armed
and the londest-voiced from on undistinguisha
ble mob pressed 60 hardly upon the worried
and over-tasked almoners that they gave for no
better reason than to get rid of these importu
nates. We believe no more funds will be
wasted in such a way. All this too we beliere.
And what then?
Old Hunks we saw you button up your pock
et some minutes since, and even yon, generous
old Gunnybags, with a glitter in yonr eye your
heart never caught sight of or it'would have
extinguished it instantcr with a tear, drew a di
agonal red line down across the contemplated
column of your charities. Don't do anything
rash. The poor we have always with us, there
is scripture for that, and we have aiways you,
Gunnybags, yon and your w&rm class of men—
warm in the Wall street phrase.
We think we have a better way as a city, in
the vurious City Missions and lesser charitable
Associations, established and sustained on the
basis of intelligently bestowing the charities of
our citizens. These follow home the gift, or
precede it by a visit which shall tell just what
is wanted and so apply it. Then there is neither
waste nor want. No one is then feeding the
McGillicuddy pig?, or nourishing the taste for
Strang drink in the elder McGillicuddies. If
fuel is wanted, it is coal and wood that is given;
if food, beef and mutton; and 6wect charity
never forgets iu these intelligent distributions
to shower softer and daintier gifts by the pallet
of disease. So shall the widow rejoice, the or
phan be glad, and the crippled strong man weep
tears of joy as the aiUsica isgcla might covet,
is performed in households of want.
Of these city institutions, the Mixistrt at
Large has wrought nobly and well. Rev. Mr.
Collyer has a heart as warm as one of the larg
est sized parlor stoves of Dr. Nott, and a quick
intelligence, an industry and indcfatigability
which carries the warmth of the same into all
parts of the city. We run the risk of shocking
his modesty by such praise, but for the good of
the cause he must couscnt that his preferences
be thus sacrificed. *
He and his predecessor, Her. Mr. Hadley,
bare established the noble Christian enterprise
firmly here in the hearts of onr citizens, and it
will be sustained. Its principle is to take the
poor by the hand, not to feedtbem orer the
fence as the farmer feeds his Berkahires. To
look into their home*, to make them feel that
they are men and women; that they are children
and not outcasts; whom God has made poor that
his more farored ones may share that blessing
lie has reserved for the girer.
We hope no reader will say omen to the creed
we hare elaborated in onr opening paragraphs
unless he or she is ready to follow it with a
ready adherence and pledge of support to some
one of the forms of charity later suggested.
God help your poor starring soul if yon apply,as
an : stringent merely, your hatred of street beg
ging. Better gire, if the gift be wasted before
your eyes, than not at all.
Bnt jnst now the Ministry at Large is a heavy
i loser, and in it onr city poor. By 'the fall of
the cast walls of the Music Ilall the office and
6torcroom of good Mr. Collyer were crashed,
and much clothing and staples of food destroyed.
The loss is a serious one and the worse in that
it deranges the msehtnery and devastates the
garners whence charities were flowing, at the
rery season when tin call is about to become
most pressing.
Shall we sum op our orerlong confession of
faith in things charitable. Shall we place prom
inent onr dislike of street begging, and encour
aging the same, and gire a still more prominent
place to the evils of forbearing to give. The
Ministry at Large deserves just now 81l that our
charitable public can do for it, and this we say
not to the exclusion of the claims of like enter*
prises springing up or already eiQcient under
the auspices of some one or other of our religi
ous denominations. Let onr citizens turn all
their gifts into these channels this winter and
do it liberally. Clothing, food, fuel, money, let
our housekeepers and onr householders remem
ber the poor, and the best means of reaching
| their needs; either go yourself or send yonr
| charities to those who will stndy actual needs.
Lire Ixsciuxce.—We are pleased to learn
that this class of security is being appreciated
by oar citizens. T. L. Miller, agent of the Man*
batten Life Insurance Co. of Xew York, has is
sued for this Company in the last mouth over
sixty policies, insuring orer $ 200,000 on lives,
for the benefit, in most cases, of the families of
those insured.
The time is not distant when eveiy man will
make provision for his family by a policy on his
life, —taking » small sum annually and placing
it beyond the contingencies of basin ess re
v tscs.
As the holidays draw near, when a large
amount of money is expended for presents, a
portion of the money thns expended might
wisely be devoted to this purpose, and thns
place families above want, and taking it at this
season of the year, it becomes an annual holi
day gift.
Mr. Miller would be pleased to fnrnish to atiy
one, statistics and facts in reference to this sub
ject.
" Almost." —Though " almost never killed a
man" as the phrase is, it is said that the divid
ing line from even a greater slaughter was a
slight one at the railroad crossing of the State
street horse railroad below Twelfth street, on
Wednesday, wben a horse ear load of passen
gers got intensely frightened at a narrow escape
from being run into by a freight train. The
point is a good one for the drivers and flagmen
to keep their eyes wide open tight.
Dr. K. F. Cooke.—We call attention to this
gentleman's card in our advertising columns.—
While there are diverse opinions as to the mer.
its of the system or theory under whichJDr. C
practices, we believe there are no two as to his
skill in the application of his theory to "the ills
that flesh is heir to."

in Chicago. "Doesticks" drew a full house,
and the Association thus drew a coveted suc
cess. Every seat was filled, the galleries were
crowded, and this at the hour of opening.
The speaker, Mortimer M. Thompson, Esq.,
gave his hearers an excellent and entertaining
poetical disquisition on "Pluck." The measure
was the long, low easy stride of Pegasus which
from common custom has become adapted to
rostrum use. The theme was well chosen, well
handled.. The audience were well pleased, and
Mr.Thompsoe left crowned with laurels or would
have done so could his .ears have caught the
interchanged comments of the crowd as they
slowly crushed their way down stairs.
We must not forget to say that "Doesticks"
couldn't help, apropos to " Pluck," to refer to.
plucky old John Brown, whereat the audience
on the last night on which it could do so over
the living exemplar of such real pluck, mani
fested great enthusiasm. . Altogether and
throughout, well done, " Doesticks."
The President of tbe Association, E. S. Wells,
Esq., introduced the evening's entertainment by
a brief reference to tbe prospect and promise of
the winter campaign, which, as we have suid, is
a most promising one. The officers of the Asso
ciation are working nobly for its interests, and
if our public meet them adequately the Associa
tion will this winter not only realize the hopes
of its friends, but leave the envied results of the
same in its treasury.
Labcext.—A colored man named James
Fields was arrested yesterday for stealing a
wallet containing about twelve dollars, from
Barton Ellis a man of his own color. He awaits
examination.

Edltbrs Frcss and Tribune
Tbe need of your just strictures, and sugges
tions as to the abases practiced in this city in
erecting unsafe buildings, has long been felt by
any and all persons who hare any interest in
tbe matter or who hare given it any attention,
and the peculiar Architectural flutter in tbis
morning's Timet, shows not only that tbe birds
are hit, but fairly and badly. How, as Mr. Van
Csdcll has roundly asserted that buildings in
Chicago are well built aod displsr full architec
tural principles for strength, durability and
beauty, perhaps he 'will point out in New
York a few stores to match the following io
Chicago, the four story brick building of ii r.
Prescott ou Lake street with eight inch walls,
and joist going into tbem on both sides; Laf
lin's Water street block lire stories high, with
twelve inch walls and joist entering the wall
four and six inches on both sides of ten or
twelre walls in succession from both sides; the
Kingsbury block with eight inc'a walls one story
and gcauiiiug (pine) the other, three stores
eightr feet front, four inch wall for west side; and
new building Xo. 113 Lake street. Why did
the Music Ilall fall if properly built, while it was
over half protected from the storm by brick
buildings in front of it ? Did any good building
fall? or were roofs generally blown off? Why,
even tbe lieu-coop on the Court House did not
go. Xo church steeple fell. The wood awnings
are ret generally standing.
I assert, and am prcpat ed to substantiate that
in no other city are buddings put up with as lit
tle care and cost to make tnem lire and life
proof as in Chicago; and more, that much of it
is from tbe great anxiety of Architects to get up
a large amount of rentable room for a little
money, and thus induce persons to build, who
would not if they were to follow the laws aod
good common sense, and put up good and 6afe
buildings. As a proof of tbis,please notice tbe
published tost of building in New York and
Chicago. It costs more than double there than
here to build business blocks, while brick
hare ruled lower there than here, always. I
need but point to Dunham's building on \Vater
street, that fell as soou as well on fire. Also the
store of D. B. Cooke, on Lake street, that fell be
fore half burned out, and killed some twenty
persons. Do stores fall in other places like
these? If so, I would like to hare them pointed
out,and tbe reason for tbtirfallioggiren, if any
can be, except that they were too cheaply built,
and then not properly fastened and supported.
Yours, for fire proof, >'ew Comer.
Correction —Editors Pnu and Tribune :
In your account of tbe State street fire in
Wednesday morning's issue, you say that the
loss of Brown 4 Sibley was fuliy covered by in
surance of $025 in the " Peoria Insurance Co."
Wilt you permit me to state that it was the new
City Insurance Co " of Peoria that had the
loss,'and not the old " Peoria Marine and Fire
Insurance Co.". The lattercompany had no in.
surance whatever on tbe property destroyed.

Shanghai.—The Chinese government has

refusing to open the ports of Suentople and
Taman as stipulated in the treaty.
Paris, Sot. 10th.—No formal invitation have
vet been sent by France to England, but Count
l'ersiugy has been instructed to arrange the
preliminary conditions with Lord John RusseU.
Austria and England have both protested
against the establishment of the Regency in
Italy.
The French perfects are instructed to invite
the journals to be more circumspect in their
language towards England. The 3 per cent.
ttuU closed to-day at 63 So.
It is stated that Buoncompagme would tender
bis resignation of the Regency to the Sardinian
government.
Two liritish war steamers have succeeded in
bringing off 350 Christians from the small ports
of Morocco. A general massacre of the fugi
tives was feared. A Spanish army of 40,000
men was expected to land in Morocco early in
December. *
Paris, Saturday.—The formal and official in
vitation will be sent to London from the Cab
inets of Vienna and Paris simultaneously. The
invitations will not be identical., Austria will
propose that the Congress assemble in Paris,
while France will abstain from indicating any
place. It is certain that Austru£ through the
medium of Prince Metternieh, has protested
against the nomination of a regent by Pied
mont, as such a regency would be contrary to
the conditions of the treaty of peace signed at
Zurich.
It is stated that England alio bad made rep
resentations against tbe regenej.
The Paris correspondent of the London
Timtt of Saturday, states that a confidential
communication of an important nature has been
addressed by the Minister of the Interior to all
tbe Prefects of France, with a view of obviating
the effect produced in England by the violent
language of the French press. The Prefects
are instructed to invite such journals to be
more circumspect. The Minister says that the
journal, while defending energetically the rights
of the country, might easily avoid ooendingthe
susceptibility of a great people by pursuing this,
line of conduct; also that the dignity of the im
perial policy may be reconciled with the interest
of the alliance of France, and the maintenance
of peace.
It is leported that Cardinal Antonelli will
represent the Pope in the Congress.
Gbeat Britain.—Tbe London Timet, upon
the San Juan difficulty, enlarges upon a general
conviction that a war between America and
England is impossible. It howeTer says, there
are some convictions which work out their own
truth in practice, bnt there are others which
tend to their own practical refutation. We sin
cerely hope that the different readings of tbe
axiom that war with England and America is
impossible may be an illustration of this truth.
The editorial, after pointing out the import
ance of San Juan t< England, and tbe impossi
bility of the surrender of it unless some very
different title be brought forward from any yet
seen, concludes by expressing much satisfaction
that the right to "the Islaod will bo early dis
cussed in Washington and London, while the
affairs on the spot will remain in statu quo.
■ Tbe London Jlerald understands that Mr.
Lever has again offered to charter the Great
Eastern for 12 months, but the proposal was re
fused without hesitation by the Directors.
The Timtt has again a His quieting article on
the relations of England and France. It com
plains that in France every instrument that can
work on public opinion is being employed tQ
raise a riolent spirit of animosity, and that the
army is taught to look on a war with England
as not remote. The Timtt cannot discover any
serious question at issue between the two gov
ernments, and affirms tbat it is in tbe power of
tbe Emperor alone to put an end to the state of
things daily becoming more serious, and if he
does not do so there is a reasonable ground for
drawing a gloomy inference from his silence.
Fraxce.—Marquis ilostier. Ambassador to
Berlin, is transferred to Vienna, rice Baron Bor
gueney, who retires from public life. Prince La
tour liaurerigne goes to Berlin.
Gen. Mantandan is named General-in-Chief
of tbe French expedition to China. This nomi
nation is unpopular in tbe army.
Prince Metternich bad received letter of cre
dence as Austrian Ambassador to Paris.
The warlike article in the London Time* of
tbe 15th, had produced a great sensation. The
Paris journals generally say that the riews set
forth are exaggerations, ana that the unfriendly
feeling if any exists is entirely owing to tbe
rioleuce of tile British Press.
The harbor of Fecamp, scar Havre, is to be
transferred into a military port and arsenal.
Tbe Ami Dt La Religion bad published a let*
ter purporting to be an answer to tbe King of
Sardinia loXapoleon's recent letter. It is, how
ever, pronounced a fabrication, and the journal
will be prosecuted.
~ Italy.—Parma, llodena, and Romagna have
tendered thanks to Prince Carignan for naming
a substitute, and informed him tbat they ac
cepted with gratitude the regency of Buoncotn
pague.
Tbe Paris Contiiluiionnd announces that the
French government has recommended the cabi
net of Turin to annul the expedient of the re
gency which is delegated to Buoncompagne, as
such a course would prejudice tbe questions and
encroach on the competency of the Congress.
It was said that the Sardinian Congress would
be summoned to meet before the assembling of
tbe Congress.
Tbe question of the annexation of Italy is to
be fully discussed, and numerous addresses
from the people of tbe Dncbies will be presented
in order to give weight to their cause.
The Government of Bologna bad decreed that
there should be a suppression of tbe Inquisi
tion.
The Piedmontese Gazette publisltfs a letter
from Prince Cavagnan to Buoncompagne iu
which he refers to, the repeated assurances of
Napoleon, that there should be no intervention
in Central Italy, and say* that such assurances
are an encouragement to the policjr of the King
who could never consent to let violence from
without oppose the national will.
brxis.—The protest of the Moorish govern
ment against the conduct of Spain in declaring
war is published. It asserts tnat the demands
of Spain in each instance, upon beiog conceded
were followed by increased pretensions, acd
also Morocco protests against Spain because
that on three occasions she paid no attention to
her engagements, and declared war without )e
--gitimate notice.

measures to secure an early organization of the

were present, all of whom were from the various
districts in the State outside of the city. «>Kach
surprise was expressed at the absence of the city
delegation. Some of the members from the in
terior desired the delegation to unite and select
candidates for the Speakership, Printer and

action, and when the delegation met, a resolu
tion, after considerable disenssion, was adopted,
to invite all the members of the House opposed
