THE DAILY EXCHANGE. PROSPECTUS. UNDER die above title it is proposed to conduct and publish in the city of Baltimore a first class Commercial and Political MORNING NEWSPAPER. This enterprise lias been prompted by the conviction that the rapid growth of Baltimore in population and wealth, its constantly augmenting trade, aud its conse quently increased commercial and political importance, not only justify but demand an effort to introduce into the field of journalism that element of competition, which, in j all other branches of business, has so materially contribu ted to the prosperity of the city, "THE EXCHANGE.With regard to the name, —if an apology were needed, for thus introducing what may per haps be deemed a novelty in the nomenclature of journal j ism,—it has been adopted, not simply for its peculiar ap- j propriateness in connection with those commercial inter ests to which a paper of the character proposed must lie j largely devoted, but in its wide and more comprehensive ! acceptation, as embracing within its scope all those topics 1 which come within the province of the public press. : Ist, NEWS.—It will, of course, be the first aim of the i proprietors to furnish the readers of THE EXCHANGE , with the most prompt, full and authentic intelligence upon i all matters of public interest, at home and abroad ; and to secure the accomplishment of this result, and the perfec tion of every arrangement required to place THE EX CHANGE in this particular on a level with the best jour nals of the country, no necessary expense' or exertion will be spared. 2d. COMMERCE—The commercial department of the pa per will include, not only the usual daily reports and weekly reviews of the markets, domestic and foreign, com piled with fulness and accuracy, but a frequent editorial j discussion of the leading financial questions of the day, with regard to which the mercantile community naturaliy , look to the public press for comment and suggestion. 3d. POLITICS.—The interests of commerce and the state of the markets are so constantly and intimately affected by the aspect of political affairs throughout the world, that a journal which aspires to be any thing more than a mere 1 commercial reporter or daily price current, must necessa- ; sarily devote a large space in its columns to the dissemi- i nation of political intelligence, and the discussion of polit ! ieal questions. In this department of the paper, which, ! apart from its commercial importance, also possesses a peculiar and exclusive interest of its own, it will be the object of THE EXCHANGE to preserve a position of honest and fearless independence, equally removed from servile partisanship upon the one hand, and timid neutrality upon the other. * ; 4th, LITERATURE AND ART.—Candid and impartial re views of current literature and contemporaneous art, mu sical and dramatical criticisms, by competent judges, and original contributions upon subjects of literary or scientific I interest, will always find an appropriate place in the col- ! umns of THE EXCHANGE, and it will be the constant aiul of the proprietors to render it a valuable and interest- ( ing journal for the family as well as for the counting- ! room. Cbucatton. PATAPSCO FEMALE INSTITUTE, MARYLAND ''jPIIE TRUSTEES ol the Patapsco Female X Institute announce to the public that the additional building, and improvements commenced by them a year ago in accordance with the subjoined resolutions, are now com plete These improvements have not been made with a view to increase the school, but for the greater conveni ence and comfort of the usual number of pupils. The new chapel is a handsome and most appropriate structure, for the exclusive use of the inmates of the In stitute, ami in all its arrangements it is most complete. It is furnished with a new organ of fine construction and ex cellent tone. The administration of Mr. Archer for the past year and the present has been attended with unprecedented suc cess. and the Trustees feel themselves fully justified in recommending the Institute to the continued favor of the South. It has pre-eminence in healthfulness. The pupils avoid ing, on the one hand, the debilitating effects of a Southern climate, and on the other the rigors of the North, have few of the interruptions incident to both these climates. It is sufficiently near to the city of Baltimore to enjoy the benefits of a city without any of its evils. As an Institution oflearning it has the advantage of a full organization, a resident chaplain, ami a corps of ac comptished teachers and professors, called together from time to time in the long experience of those having c harge of the Institute. The Trustees of the Patapsco Female Institute, having been duly notified by Mrs. Lincoln Phelps of her intention to resign her office of principal at the close of the present school year, have elected Robert 11. Archer as her succes sor. The eminent success of Mr. Archer in conducting for many years a School for Young Ladies in the city of Balti more, entitles him to our confidence as a person peculiarly qualified to maintain the present high standing, and insure the permanent prosperity of the Institution; and with this view we are engaged in the erection of another building in addition to the present extensive accommodations of the Institute.

[COMMUNICATION.] ANNAPOLIS, March 6th, 1858. To THE EDITORS OF THE EXCHANGE : Gentlemen —l have read with some surprise your comment on my communication in reply to your correspondent C., denouncing the bill to incorporate '•The Central African Society," now pending before the Legislature. As to the character and motives ! of your correspondent you are, of course, better qualified to judge than I. for you know who he is, and Ido not. 1 accept your assertion that he not actuated bv the motives which I imputed tohiui —but it is apparent that he has grosslv misrepre sented the purpose and scope of the bill, and, in do ing so, has grossly assailed me, who am responsible for the bill, although I am in nowise interested in it, further than, as a citizen of the United States, I am interested in any and all measures which will increase our commerce, or which will aid in ridding us of free blacks. Whether his representations be ignorantly or maliciously made, I hold that you, as the conductors of a free press, are bound to permit any one who has been unjustly assailed through your columns to use your paper to repel the assault. This courtesy is due to any one, however humble, and in this case it is due to the members of the Le gislature, before whom the bill is pending, and es pecially to the committee by whom the bill was re ported, as well as to Mr. Bowen and myself. You too, as well as your correspondent, denounce the bill as a "MONOPOLY." I have too much expe rience as an Editor, and know too well, that in the haste of composition, we often use words without due consideration, and therefore cannot believe that you will seriously contend that the bill, if passed, will create a "monopoly." Webster defines a "monopoly" to be: "The sole power of vending any species of goods, obtained either by engrossing the articles in market by purchase, or liy a license from the government, confirming this "privilege. Thus the East India Company in Great Britain, lias a monopoly of the trade to the East Indies, granted to them bv char ter." Now if you will examine the bill, you will see that it does not propose to give an exclusive, or "xole potrer" to trade with Central Africa, and therefore it will not create a monopoly. The legislature have no power to grant such monopoly. They cannot .prevent any one from trading with Central Africa, and a moments reflection must convince you, that you have done Mr. Bowenandme great injustice bv charging that he seeks or that I advised him, to ask a monopoly of trade. He quotes McGregor, tojshow that the tobacco used by the English in their trade with Western Africa, is worth $8,000,000 per annum, and that the trade with Morocco, is worth 510.000.000 per annum. For a Company, of $10,000,000 to monopolise such a trade is impossible. So far from wishing to get a monopoly, Mr. Bow en has urged in lectures, in sermons, in letters, in essays and in his book, as well as in a memorial to Congress, the importance of the trade to Central Africa, as a means of aiding the cause of coloniza tion and of christian missions, in Africa. He is a missionary and not a trader. He does not seek to become a trader in Africa or elsewhere. Nor do X. But agreeing with him that the trader should go with the missionary, and believing that under a charter he could induce others to invest the requi site funds to open a valuable commerce, I advised him to ask the charter. He is now in New York, publishing a Dictionary and Grammar of the " Yu roba" language, and having been his adviser, I feel called upon to take upon myself the whole respon sibility of the measure —not only because he is un justly assailed during his absence, but because it is due to him, and to the cause of missions, in which he is engaged, to denounce as 1 do, as most unjust and unmerited, the imputation that he has for him self any other purpose than to promote the cause of missions in Central Africa. I trust, gentlemen, that you will recur to his book on Central Africa, and that you and your cor respondent will feel it your duty to retract the im putations contained in your strictures on the bill in question. Respectfully, I)I FF GREEN. [Reported for the Daily Exchange.] FIRST ANNUAL MEETING • OF TIIE EAST BALTIMORE CONFERENCE OF THE METHODIST EPISCOPAL CIIIRCII. FOURTH DAY. —Saturday, March 6.—At 9 o'clock the Conference was calied to order by the President, Bishop Baker. The usual morning services then followed, conduct ed by the Rev. Philip B. Reese. The proceedings of the previous day were then read by the Secretary, and approved. The relation of the Rev. Noah Schlosser was changed at his own request, from the supernumera ry to the effective list. The Secretary called on the members who were appointed to collect statistics to make their reports. The Conference was asked to change the relation of the Rev. Mr. McKee from the effective tothejsu pernumerary list, which was done. At his own request the connection of the Rev. Henry F. Nicholson with the Conference Was discon tinued. The President then called on the Districts for the recommendations of local preachers suitable to be elected to Deacons' Orders. The following gentlemen were elected: East Baltimore District —Rev. Thomas M. Cath cart. Frederick—Revs. Dr. Adreon V. B. Orr and Samuel Milford. Carlisle—Revs, .lames 11. McGarra, Charles 11. Zeigler, Benjamin C. Lippincott, Abraham Sahm and John Williams. No candidates from the other Districts. The President then called the districts for the re commendations of local deacons suitable to be elected to elders' orders. The following gentlemen were elected: Northumberland District, Rev. William Gebhart; Carlisle, Rev. Archibald G. Marlatt. No candidates from the other districts. Bishop Baker then introduced to the Conference the Rev. Mr. Eddy, Editor of the North Western Christain Advocate, and the Rev. Mr. French, Agent of the Wilberforce University. They were invited to seats within the bar of the Conference. The Rev. Mr. Dunlap presented the report of the Irving Female College, which, on motion, was re ferred to the Committee on Seminaries. The Rev. Mr. Gere presented a paper to the Chair containing some questions in relation to discipline for his decision. The Rev. Mr. Torrence presented the Report of the Wyoming Seminary, which was referred to the Committee on Seminaries. The Rev. James H. Brown, chairman of the Com mittee on Memoirs, to whom was referred the sub ject of preparing a suitable memoir of the late Bishop Waugh. presented the following:— The committee appointed to prepare a suitable memoir on the death of Bishop Waugh. to go on the journal of the Conference report the following: That whilst in common with all the conferences we mourn the loss the church has sustained in the death of Rev. Beverly Waugh. D.D., its senior su perintendent, we especially feel it as the largest di vision of the old Baltimore conference, with which he stood so long identified, to render an humble tribute of our regard and affection to his memory, and to record our testimony for generations to come to the piety which adorned his private and public life, to the power and success that attended his min istrations and to the wisdom that marked his coun sels in all the various relations he sustained to our common Zion. Therefore, Resolved, That whilst this conference deeply de- j plores the loss the church has sustained in the fleath of one whose unblemished purity of life, whose zeal j and fidelity as a minister of the gospel, and the wis- ' dom of wliose counsels as a general superintendent j contributed so much to her strength and prosperity, yet bows submissively to that all wise Providence j that has removed him from labor to reward. Resolved, That we endeavor to imitate his fidelity as a minister of the Lord Jesus "doing the work of an Evangelist," and that being affected and ad monished Dy his death we will consecrate ourselves more fully to God, and as Christian ministers "give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word." Resolved, That we tender to the bereaved widow and family of our beloved Bishop, the expression of our affectionate sympathy, and entreat for them the continued care and consolation of Him who is "the Father of Mercies and the God of alt comfort." Resolved, That a copy of this memoir be sent to the family of the deceased by the hand of the Secre tary of the Conference. (Signed) JAS. H. BROWN, JOHN MILLER, SAMITEL KEPLER. The report was accepted, and ordered to be placed upon the journal. The Rev. Mr. Brown, of the Board of Stewards, then continued the call upon the members for claims upon the funds. The claim of the Rev. John Thomas was refused, bv a vote of the Conference, upon the ground that he was very well to do in the world, and was not in want. I The Rev. Dr. Wise, Agent of the Sunday School j Union, and editor of the Sunday School Advocate, was then introduced to the Conference, and spoke ! at some length. | He referred to the character of the books publish ] ed by the Sunday School Union, and commended I their use to the brethren, as containing all the tenets recognised by the Methodist Episcopal Church.— Such books should be put into the hands of the Sun day School children, in preference to other publi cations. He was sorry to see in the libraries or some thriving schools, almost every volume bearing the mark of other houses. Ilehoped the brethren would bear his remarks in mind, lie then gave some in | teresting statistics, in regard to Sunday Schools, | and the Sundav School Union. After Dr. W'ise closed his remarks, the Rev. Rob ert Cadden moved that it be made a subject of im peachment for any preacher to introduce into the I Sunday Schools, other publications than those ema nating from the Sunday School Union. The motion was not seconded. The Rev. Mr. Hildt said the course of the "Sun day School Advocate" was objectionable to a great majority of the members of this Conference, on ac count of introducing into its columns a subject which could very well be let alone. The Rev. Jas. H. Brown said that a man must be I wanting in common sense who would introduce this j subject into such a paper, designed as it was for cir I culation in different sections of the country, j A gentleman called Mr. Brown to order, as being i personal in his remarks to Dr. Wise, who is now I upon the floor. Mr. Brown—Very well, I modify my remark. He I shows a great want of discretion." The Rev. A. A. Reese wished to know how it was, I that in several works contributed to the church lite ' rature by Dr. Wise this subject is not touched upon, j but now, as editor of the Sunday School Advocate, | it is his Alpha and Omega. I Dr. Wise said it was true he had written i several books, which were published by the Sunday School Union. He had first given them titles, chosen the subject and laid the outlines, and if it had been necessary, in developing the plots, to have expounded his views in regard to this subject of slavery, he would have done so fear lessly, regardless of either pecuniary benefit or loss to himself. ~ As editor of the Sunday School Advo cate, he desired to discuss christian themes, and christian ethics. The subject of slavery he consid ered under the latter head. Ho therefore intro duced it mildly and gently, but firmly. He hadta ken his stand, and his conscience would not allow him to change his course, if he continued as editor for the next four years. Bev. Mr. lteese said that if the course of that paper upon the subject of slavery was continued, it would be necessary to discontinue it altogether in his fam ily, he would not have the minds of his children cor rupted by reading it. Rev. Air. Hildt said—Dr. Wise tells us he has tak en his stand in regard to this subject, and as long as he edits the paper he will not change his course. If he persists in doing so, our only remedy is to abol ish the Sunday School Advocate from our Sabbath Schools and families, and refuse it our countenance and support. Rev. Mr. Torrence said he was sorry this discus sion had sprung up in the Conference at the present time. He did not wish it to go abroad. He thought the papers published for circulation among all the communities of the Methodist Church should be confined to the discussion of strictly religious sub jects. We should all unite upon a paper conducted on such a plan. r Rev. Mr. Keppler rose to a personal explanation. Not in order. Several gentlemen rose to make remarks. The chair recognized the Rev. Geo. D. G'henowith, who moved to refer the whole subject to the Sunday School Committee. The motion was adopted. The report of the Preachers' Aid Society was then presented by Mr. Job Smith. It was read by the Secretary, approved and ordered to be tiled.— The report states the amount of funds invested bv the Society amounts to $26,586.95. The Rev. Mr. Furlong' asked to be excused from the Committee on the Education of Preachers' children. He was excused, and the llev. X. B. Buckingham put in his place. The Rev. Titos. B. Sargent, chairman of the com mittee which was appointed to confer with the Rev. Dr. Durbin, in regard to the formation of a Mis sionary Society for the Conference, presented a re port, and also a constitution for the government of the same. The society will be called "The East Baltimore Conference Missionary Society." A motion was made to continue on trial the Rev. George \V. Conner, who is now ill at Frederick.— The motion was adopted. The Rev. Robert S. McWilliams, a local preacher eligible to Deacon's orders, not being present at the Conference, it was moved and adopted that he be continued on trial. A paper was read bv the Assistant Secretary from ISonj. F. Hawks, No". 205 W<-st Baltimore street, offering to make Photographs ol such of the mem bers as would call at bis establishment. After singing and prayer by Rev. Mr. Taylor, the Conference, at Vl} 4 o'clock, adjourned until Mon day morning at !i o'clock. [From the Washington Star, March 6th.] BALTIMORE ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH -AT WESLEY CHAPEL, WASHINGTON, D. C. Titian D tv— Continued. When our report closed yesterday, Rev. Mr. Phelps was addressing the Conference in advocacy of the resolutions which he had introduced in a former session, for the establishment of a weekly religious journal, to be published in Baltimore, under tiie direction of the two Conferences. After making a powerful appeal in favor of the project, he sat down, and was followed by Rev. Jatnes Sewell, who stated that his con troversies were always with controversy itself; it was always conceded that religious quarrels were the most irreligious quarrels in the world. Rev. Mr. Wilson had to-day thought he had found two gentlemen who were just the tnen for the editors of this paper; for himself he thought one of these men would not do; one of them was too fiery, and the other was too briery—both had given in this meeting specimens of their abilities, and he thought it would not do to have them at the edito rial table. If this paper should be ordered, and we were assailed, we must defend ourselves, and there by get up a religious argument which would lead to quarrels. Let us try and conquer by love. It would conquer every thing but the devil." This [ta per might do good; hut they must getvery religious editors. Rev. Mr. Myers followed, saying that, when this project was first started, he had been in favor of it; but, from the report which had been received, it was apparent that we have got to support the burden alone. The East Baltimore Conference had drawn away from the idea very decidedly. Thev had in their deliberations very coolly laid the whole mat ter on the table. The speaker thought it best to defer this matter until the next General Conference. Ho proposed that, as the minds of all had been made up, they now take the sense of the Conference at once, upon the subject. This proposition was after ward withdrawn and the subject left open for fur ther discussion, and thereupon the Conference was addressed by Rev. John L. Gilbert, who took very decided ground in favor of the project of starting a paper at once. He did not like the idea of a controversial paper: he did not so understand this project. In the midst of this controversial warfare, if we had such a paper as is now proposed, we could, through its columns, let our true position be known to those who were in a state of doubt as to it. Rev. George Brooks stated it as his opinion, that it was our duty to our people and to our God to fur- i nish the church with this paper. It would be heart ily sustained, and would effect just the work requir- | ed. He should vote for this paper, hoping it would ; meet the requirements of the Conference. Rev.X. J. B. Morgan also, in a somewhat length\ and very able manner, advocated the proposed "Christian Advocate." Their people wanted in formation, and l>y its means could bo informed of their position. There was a general dearth in the bounds of this Conference of religious literature. | Let the work go on, and at once. The establish ment of this paper would directly tend to the increased circulation of their books. There were but few books adapted to the wants of the people in circulation, and the reason was they did not know of them. Jf this paper were to be established it would inform those in want of the proper books of light on religious subjects and of consequence increase the circulation of religious books an hun dred fold. Itev. Mr. Clemm stated that, as one of the com mittee who had reported on the pending resolutions, he felt it his duty to speak. As to the proposed character of the paper, the committee did not pro pose to give it a controversial character. It was not the committee's purpose to provoke controver sy ; the controversy was already provoked, and it was with a view to its allayment that the proposed paper was to be established". They would send out their paper, in order that good-toned religious read ing may pervade the minds of their people ; they must purify the moral atmosphere, and their pro ject must and would prevail. Of all the religious papers now published in the country, which one was a proper exponent of the platform on which they stood? Xot one. This paper was intended strictly as a religious paper, for family distribution; and the speaker believed the Conferences had the ability and energy to conduct it successfully. The speaker here suspended his 'remarks for a motion for adjournment. The Chair announced the committee on the af fairs of the Metropolitan Church, as follows : Rev. E. It. Veecli, ltev. E. X. Brown, and Rev. E. F. Busev. The Conference thon'adjourned, after the Doxolo i gy, and benediction by Rev. Xorval Wilson. FOURTH DAV. ! The Conference was opened with religious exer j eises by Rev. Mr. Myers. • The Conference then went into the regular busi j ness of the day, Rev. Bishop Ames presiding, i The examination of the character of effective j elders was taken up, and the ciders of the Win chester district being called over were passed as usual. | This business was interrupted by the Chair in j order for the Committee on Missions to make i their report, which was done through their chair- I man, Itev. E. I'. Phelps, and the report was adopted. The examination of effective elders was then re sumed, and the Rockingham district coming next in order, its elders were called over and successively j passed. i The Chair here introduced to the Conference Rev. i l)r. Thompson, of Philadelphia, who, he announced, : would address the session after awhile on behalt ot the Xational Magazine. Rev. Mr. Hatch, of the Xew England Conference, was also introduced to the session, and invited to a seat in the Conference. The Roanoke district being now called, Rev. B. H. Xadal gave an animated account of the progress of religion in that quarter. The effective ETders PRICE TWO CENTS. of this district were now called over and passed. Ihe Louisburg district was represented next bv Rev. Mr. Phelps, who stated that that district had. during the past year, been very prosperous, some ■even hundred converts having been added to the Church. The Conference then went into the cousideratiou of the first question on the General Minutes, viz:— ''Who are admitted on trial?" and Jno. A. Williams r rankUn Ward, Samuel V. Leech, Charles Lewis lorrinson, W m. David Rippetoe, Benjamin Arbog hast, James F. Been, Wm. Bagelev, Wm. J. Perry, Benjamin F. Frampton, John Leef, Adam P. Bowd and James L. Snyder were duly admitted. The Rev. Mr. Lipscomb, Chairman of the Board °i Stewards, here gave notice that the Board would 1 k co^ec^ons on Monday morning at 10V£ The Conference then went into the election of Local preachers to Elders Orders, which business was occupying the attention of the session when our report closed.

Tlie Time* is glad to pass Mr. Roebuck off against the vaporing French Colonels, hut protest agaiust some of his expressions. LONDON, Friday Evening, Feb. 13, 1858. Ihe next telegraphic despatches from India will be due at Malta on Sunday next, with news from Bombay to the 24th ult. The Court ot Bankruptcy to-day Mr. Lawrence, on behalf of the great Xorthern Railway Compa ny, stated that the total amount of Redpath's frauds was £'220,000, anil that a special examination had resulted in the identification of forged transactions to the amount of £64,350. The whole of the credi tors had been paid 20s. in the pound, with the ex ception of the brokers, who, if they had exercised ordinary discretion, might have prevented Red path's frauds from getting to the enormous extent which they had reached. Mr. Lawrence submitted a proof for £60,000 against Redpath's estate. Mr. Commissioner Goulburn, at once committed the proof, and said he quite approved of the examina tion the company had made, with respect to the brokers, who will receive only 15s. in the pound. DUBLIN, Friday, Feb. 13, 1858. Last night, or early this morning, the Union workhouse at Atliy was almost totally consumed by fire. The particulars of the disastrous occurrence have not yet been learned, but it is to he lamented that no less than three male paupers and live bovs perished in the conflagration. LONDON, Saturday, Feb. 13, 1858. The Tunes says the India bill merely embodies, in a few and obvious changes, the conclusions to which all men have been rapidly approaching as often as they have had occasion to deplore the cumbrous machinery and tardy operations of our Indian government and the want of any real re sponsibility; it will remove useless agencies, in terventions and delays. There is not a shadow of wrong—not a man, woman or child is the worse tor the bill. The London Neirs was prepared to find the bill entirely subvert all those constitutional principles on which the safety of that empire has been hitherto believed to depend; but it was not prepared to learn the utter incapacity of Government to make out even a prima facie case for destroying the double Government at any time, and much* less for destroy ing it at a period of great popular excitement. I\ bile the country itself is still rent by internal con vulsions, the most important measure" ever fallen to Parliament in our time has been incubated in haste, in ignorance, in confusion; and, instead of solid and substantial facts and weighty arguments, the pro pounder of this dangerous and destructive scheme throws out a couple of flatulent claptraps, and thinks that he has convinced the nation of the wis dom of his perilous design. The Chronicle says there is every prospect of a protracted discussion, but at present there are no indications as to its probable political or party lean ings. Monday will supply this deficiency by dis closing the line to be adopted by the opposition leaders. The Herald thinks, if any charge be needed, it should be a much less violent one. The blow aimed by Government at the East India Company will pro bably recoil on themselves. The second leader ofYAe London Times is on the Government of India and Lord Canning's letter, which The Times considers as a valid defence to the most popular charges against him. The third article is on recruiting for the army.— For the last five months the recruits attested have averaged very little short of 4,000 a month for the infantry of the line alone, and 6,000 for all arms of the service together. These numbers would repre sent, within a fraction, a total levy of 70,000 troops a year—a rate amply sufficient, if maintained, to answer all demands upon us. Our machinery may be somewhat defective. It would probably be of material service if persons of iutiuence, in our coun ties would again bestir themselves, and let the la boring classes know, from authority above 'suspic ion, that really good treatment, and in many cases a vastly improved condition, awaits a lad on enter ing the*army. The machinery would be more effec tive, too, if it were permanent, and if some species of organization were preserved, which might be exerted with more or less activity, according to the nature of the demand. The News thinks our Government ought to take a stand against the Neapolitan Government in the affair of the Cagliari steamer. The Herald says the accusations and criticisms of Mr. Roebuck last night, afford a painful contrast to the temperate, yet dignified, language of Lord Derby. FRANCE. Accounts, received in Paris, state that more troops are required in China, to carry out the intended operations. No more addresses from the army are to be pub lished in the Moniteur, or any other paper publish ed in France. One of the Paris correspondents of Le Nord says that the military addresses in the Moniteur have not been the only manifestations of feeling against Eng land on the part of the French colonels; some of those honored with the Order of Bath having ex pressed a desire to return their decorations. The Minister of War, according to Le Nord, speedily put a stop to these demonstrations. It is stated by the Paris correspondence of the Indepcndance that, at the interview between the new Minister of the Interior and the principal offi cers in his department, he announces that his ap pointment was not provisional, but that it was mane to carry into effect the plans of the Emperor, and that those who could not give their entire support to the new policy of the government had better re sign their posts. RUSSIA. The Journal de Frankfort states that the commer cial crisis in St. Petersburg caused several failures, with liabilities ranging from 50,000 to '200,000 silver rubies. Stieglitz & Co. are reported to have lost largely, and byway of compensation it is said the Emperor has permitted them to export one million gold imperials, the ten per cent, export duty being suspended in their favor. It seems propable that these particulars involved great exaggeration. The correspondent of The Times states that, ac cording to letters from Odessa, the number of Rus sian sailors in the Black Sea is not to bediminished, as the vessels of war are not to exceed a certain number. The Grand Duke Constantine has given orders that all sailors who were in the service of the Government shall be sent on board merchant men, and he suqject to the same discipline as before, and have the same pay ; and inder that thev may not forget any part of their duties, mercantile ves sels are to carry guns. When Russia has completed her fleet of mercantile steamers in the Black Sea, its neutrality will exist onlv in name, It is again stated that Schamvt had submitted to Russia, but Le Nord, which retrained at the time from publishing the above news, states that the last intelligence from Circassia does not confirm the submission of Schatnyl.
