France is, still the theatre ofcom-tldi-r.
• Hie confusion. A report was spread in
the course of (he sitting of the National
Assembly on theSth inst., that the police
were in search ol a high personage, ar- !
lived in the morning at Paris hv the dll- ■
igence from London. From informa- j
tion believed to he correct this per-o,uage i
has been arrested. The personage here I
alluded to is the Prince dc Joinville.
Prince Louis Napoleon i; niuler-iooii ;
to be in tor Paris, lie will probably oh
tain three returns besides that at the rap- I
ital. The government of course will not
dare to molest him.
The European Times dales that “the |
resignation of Lamartine and Ledru L’ol 1
lin was openly tallied of in P.ui-'. and;
suspicions are expressed that Laio.iriino ;
was a party to the movement ol the ]. r ;h j

jt’oliee, ( barge ; Lamartine with Iriviri-/'
supplied tho arms’to Soul.riere, v. liich I

The Repeal Association and Orange
Confederation have at last IValerni/.i il.
A new society to he composed of tied;
members of Loth these bodies is to he I
formed. Ji i- to assume the style and 1
title of the hi. h League,
it is to he managed by a committee ,
chosen from the members of both the I
late societies, and to agitate (he question ; '
of repeal bj constitutional means, alone . j
Doubts are entertained by many whether i
such materials as the proposed league 1
will contain, ran work harmoniously to- 1
gather for any length of time.
The government have not yet made I.
any move to re-endict Mr. Smith O'lJricii 1
ami Mr. Meagher. Sympathy for Mrs. j'
Mitchell and her children is still ex
pressed, and the funds collecting in their
behalf are daily increasing. j
The 1 ri-h Confederation have \ rued a j
very strong, and, to say the truth, disaf- j ]
fee ted address to the people of Ireland, j
The billowing is among the more impor
tant passages. The address is signed by
f-'inith O’Wfien. : 1
“We will not conceal from the Cov j i
eminent that nothing hut the most siren ,

Mu. Editor:—Our government is one
of“checks and balances ” The different

; where ils effects are doubly dangerous,
rand abiding, Cur constitution once do I
; liberately hr d.n, i virtually torn into
: fragments, and applied ns fin 1 to the pil-
Ibus of State. The ranke; I despotism that
i evi rdefaced earth will have power and
j a degree of prosperity, if the reign- ;
ling authority is not made to transcend
: the limits mark: d out by general *xpec-;

"inanated to 'in the A meric,ui people, and
tin xv 1 1 icli the li .p . vi that people are

as a football forkings. This clanger is
greatly enhanced by an error common

too much confluence in our public, men.
I We are delighted with our beautiful .-ys

at ibe same time a corrupt Executive
may be paddling with monkey grin over
the people’s gold, or biding beneath the;
mantle of vaunted honor, the bloody!

while Congress and (lie people arc throb i 1
tied almost to death by the greedy fin-
ii ers of James K. folk. Laugh I while!
■ '
the American flag is wet with guilty
blood, and trampled in the dust by the,
iron shod feet of war-horses. Laugh 1 *
while you are changing the government
into a v.’oiv. r of , lirmuls and a builder j;
of coll:-is. If lb!- e • H qniiiiicanisiii, we
can find a heller charter by groping a-j •’
