H A. O VOL. VII.-N0. 3T. PHTLADEIaPHIA, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1867. DOUBLE SHEET-THREE CENTS. 7T7 Tv7i Jl JJlLiiij y EUROPE, LATEST STEAMER NEVS. The Cunard mail steamship Australasian, Captain Cook, which left Liverpool at noon on the 26th, and Queenstown on the 27th January, arrived at New York yesterday morning. Paris was alarmed, on the night of the 25th of January, by a report that the Kinr of Iuiy had been assassinated. The Emperor Napoleon sent to the Prefecture ball, which was going on at the time, a special message contradicting the report. Mr. Gladstone wns m Paris, en route to London from Italy, and the Political Economy Society of France seized the occasion to tender him a banquet. It was to take place on the 26th of January. The Prussian royal patent Incorporating Schleswlg-Holstrin with the Prussian monarchy was promulgated on the 24th of January at the Castle of Kiel. The patent promises the popu lation equal rights with the other inhabitants of Prussia; the preservation of all unobjection able institutions peculiar to the country, and the non-removal of the present otliclats from their posts except tor cause. The proclama tion which accompanies the patent pays a tribute to the proved constancy ol the Scliles-wig-Hoistemers, and declares that every effort will be made to promote the prosperity of the country. The Opinion Rationale of Paris, which had hitherto retrained in a somewhat marked man ner from expieswins its views relative to the Jate changes in the Constitution, published on January 26 a long article, signed by M. Gueroult, commenting on the vigorous measures of re lonn proponed. The series of observations in question present this peculiarity, that while all the early portions seem rather hostile to the modifications proposed, and still more to the manner in which they have been produced, the latter part expatiates without reserve in praise f the Emperor, lor both his acts and his in tentions. The Emperor Napoleon's reform letter sug gests the iol lowing reflections to the Turin Gazette: The constitutional reforms in France appear of a nature to satisfy tho most exacting, and to answer to the desires oi the most ardent liberals ot that nation. It may be said that the Constitution of the empire has made a great step towards the tranquil plains of the broadest liberty. As to us Italians, we ought to rejoice heartily at the sight of the edifice, erected and crowned by the one and genuine ally whom Italy has ever had, settling down on the solid foundations on whih our own constitutional liberties repose. These are foundations which the reactions will always be powerless to ehake." We read in La France of January 26: "A 'recent article in the Florence Gazelle, repub lished by several Turin tournals.iaserted that French emissaries were busy in the neighbor hood of Aosta, making a propaganda in favor of the French Government. The Nazione says it is in a position to declare in the most explicit manner that this statement is destitute of foun dation." Viscount Hood has transmitted for publication the following letter which he has received from Uie Emperor Napplcop;-, "PalAci 0 tfibt TuiLBRifis, January 20, 1867. Sir: I learn with regret by jour letter that the tombs of the English officers killed at the battle of Toulouse are in a dilapidated condi tion. Soldiers who fall in foreign country belong to that country, and it is the duty of all to honor their memory. I shall have the tombs repaired at my own expense. Receive, etc. "Napolbon." The London Morning Post of the 26lh makes the announcement alluded to In our cable re portthat the long pending differences between Hungary and the Conrt ot Vienna have been satisfactorily adjusted. A separate Hungarian Ministry has been conceded, and the nomina tion of its members is almost complete. The London Fast of the 25th of January, speaking of Napoleon's more recent policy, Bays: "These preparations and this change of policy do not prove that t rance contemplates war, but tbey clearly demonstrate that, in the opinion of her ruler, the contingency of war is possible, if not probable, and that in such an event France must not be found in the same unprepared state in which she stood last year. In a word, Napoleon III does not believe that the treaty ot Prague was final, nor that th 3 pre sent statu quo wUl long continue undisturbed: and he has resolved that if further changes are are to be effected, tbey shall not be made with out the oonsent of France." The Tribunal de Commerce of the Seine, France, has registered a decision in a case somewhat similar to that of Glover vs. Persigny, tried some years since In London in connecttou with Napoleon's subsidizing an English news paper. It appears that in 1863, when all the French journals were attacking Kussia with reference to the Polish question, M. Tohitcbe rlne, a gentleman attached to the Russian embassy in Paris, took steps to subsidize the jaUon, in order that it might put "correct views" of Russo-Pollsh affairs before the Pari sian public. Since that time the Nalwn has come to grief, and the creditors of the paper have taken advantage of an agreement entered into byM. Tchitcherine to sue him for a portion of the debts of the establishment, which, it seems, his agreement bound blm to sustain. The Tribunal de Commerce has decided against the Russian employe, notwithstanding the privileges of an embassy, on the ground that he entered into partnership In a commer cial speculation. It is still possible that his privilege may Becnre him irom arrest; but it seems likely that the Russian Government will have to pay a considerable sum in excess of what thev alreadv have disbursed. When the Australasian left Knrland, all the overdue steamers bad reached England except the Bosphorus from Philadelphia, and she was spoken on the 30th January, six hundred miles west oi yueenswwn, snort ot cuai.

All the influence which he possessed, and It is not Inconsiderable, is said to have been brought to bear, directly and indirectly, In etlccling this combination, on the success of which, by the aid of another hluh personage, ho counted with certainty. M. Lavalette also was to make room for some other person in the Homo Department whose oratorical gifts were more potential than his. In the meantime tho Emperor was maturing, in silence and secreny, his plan of reform not quite the snme bb that which has been pub lished, though very nearly so. The Cabinet Council that was to meet on Wednesday was postponed, in consequence of the Court ball, to Thursday, and on that day, before any other business was entered upon, he quietly drew from his pocket a sheet of paper, read to his Ministers the draft of his project, Informed them that, as he had definitively made up his mind upon it. he would not then trouble them for any nl'Kervntlons, ana requested them to proceed forthwith to the or'larv business ol the day. The Ministers received the gracious communi cation with respect; not without surprise, but they said nothing. On t-alurday the Council of Ministers met again, and the Kmperor having settled in his own mind whnt to do with them, they were allowed to have their say. The Empress was present and took part in the conference. Tnere can be no indelicacy in alluding to this lllus rl ous lady, who is, 10 all Intents and purposes, a poll leal personage. Her Mafesty has over and over again presided at Cabinet Councils, she almost always takes a share in the proceedings, and sometimes signs decrees and ordinances. In the present Instance, it is related that her Majesty wns pleased to expre-s herself not over satisfied with the concessions granted by the Kmperor, as they gave rather too much latitude to the opposition, and too much disarmed authority. M. Chasseloup-Laubat (Marine.) inclined to more liberal views, and, perhaps, took some exceptions to the project. There is some un certainty as to how Marshal Handon expressed himself on the particular subject, thouuh there were none as to whnt he thought of the pro- iect for the organization of the nrmy. M. ..avalette. strange to say, took rather a liberal view, though he might not completely dis approve the plan. M. Fonld did not conceal his opinion that it could hardly bo looked upon as serious, would cordially support auy well considered serious measure that would enlaree the circle of publio liberty, and at the same time maintain Ihe proper authority of the Executive; but he did not think that the one in question had that character. Alter hearing with his wonted serenity and patience all the Ministers had to say, his Mnlesty was pleased to notify his Ministers thut he bad made up his mind, and be invited them to resign en masse. The "invitation" was at once Accepted. It was considered as a mere formality, though perhaps a superfluous one, as they all expeoted to be reinstated in their posts. How far their expectations have been realized you already know. Those who had planned a new combination are, it appears, mere disappointed than anyone. M. Walewskl is, alas, not the Minister of State; M. Rouher keeps his; place; M. Magne is not Flnanee Minister: M. Ollivier is not Minister of any thing and is not the Government organ in the Chamber, M. lAvalette is still head of the Ilome Office, though, with a modesty for which few gave him credit, be admitted he was not a great orator, and ho feared his inability to defend, as they should be defended, the acts and policy of the Government. He was told, however, on very high authority, that he was one of tho best speakers in Council; and if he made one effort to get rid of the natural timidity which is his great charm, he would positively shine in de bate. Thus the ministers, who resigned as a matter of form, but were not called back, must resign themselves to remain out. M. Chasseloup-Laubat has since said that he by no means regrets tne loss oi omce, as ne is preiiy wen tired of it; and his colleague of the War Depart ment protests he is quite of the same mind.

Ills Views of "The Situation,'' as Stated to the Correspondent of the "London Times." Wwshinyton (Jan. 10) Cor. London Times. There is an advantage to the stranger which American politicians do not appreciate, ot hearing both sides or a question, ana in vnese dnys the only efficient means of getting at the President's views is from himself. It Is some months since I last saw too rrenieeni, nuu i uia onTinnn to aHRertaln his oDlnions upon the state of the country and the events of the lam few months. Mr, Jonuson was gooa onuugu iu cive me an interview this afternoon at the white House, and he expressed to me the views which I shall, with his sanction, endeavor to repeat to you. 'fhn President said that the light in which he regarded public affairs at the present moment was that a minority In the country was seeking to impose its views upon the majority, lhat minority knew the scale would bo turned against them if the full number of the States were represented In Congress, and hence they were lnnexiDie iu tuvn ucioiiiuuiiimjii them out. If once the people could be brought to understand that the fundamental principles of the Government were at stake, and not mere onestions of party supremacy, there would be hope tnaijuBuiuo , In the election last autumn false Issues were dexterously introduced, and upon them the neode pronovneeu juuiiuoih. xuoy mo n that if the Southern States were readmitted the national Interest would be imperilled, and they did not stop to consider whether this was true or not. They forsot the weakness to which the o w hai hnf.ii reduced, and never considered PUUkU . ' .,, . ' . , . i , i , , ,,-,,.1,1 that It wouia stiii ue uuimuui .. .uuu.i obey the North, the stronger power the power with avanaoio iort; oi iu But, continued the President, it is Impossible that the question should rest here. Dlttle by little thebouthern Stateshad been brought back into a proper action with the machinery of gov ernment. The Government and ttia States had gradually approached each other, law and con stituted authority resumed their sway, and everything was completed except the admission of representatives from those States to Congress. But here Congress Interposed, and 11 said. "Yon are not States at all, and you shall not be repre sented." From that moment It began to pull to Dleces the main fabrlo of the Government; It began to wipe out the Slates JroiO Which aioo i derived M xiiUaoei The States had brought Congress Into exist ence, and now Congress proponed to destroy theSlates. It proposed to abolish theorlglnal and elementary principle of its being. It was as if the creature mined round upon thecreator, and attempted to destroy him. But suppose theso States, with their lawfully appointed Governors and administrators, refusod to obey this summons to depart ontot life altogether? Suppose they said: "We are within the scope of Ihe Constitution; we are obeying the laws; the Government recognizes ns by the infliction of taxes.and the appolntmentof public officers; and no Congress on decree our dissolution!" Could the Government deny or repudiate this argument? If It came before the courts, and they rubstantlaled It, what would remain to Congreti but the exercise of force in order to carry out lis views? Thus the country would be Involved in another revolution; townrds that all the proceedings of Congress in relation to tber South were tending. The Executive Government were, at least, endeavoring to ful fil what was the supreme law of the land the Constitution. There was a time when men con sidered the Constitution first when they framed laws. Now they occasionally mentioned it in an accidental manner. Someone on looking around discovered the Constitution, with much the same sense of astonishment, apparently, that a man who was watching the stars might exper enco when he discovered a new planet. But the Constitution was on the side of tho Executive: low was on Its side, nnd reason and Jnstlee. Tho people would eventually perceive that It was lnter- Fiofcing to preserve the very basis of this repuo ienn Government, although their attention might be diverted from it now, "There Is," added the President, "no answer to this argu ment no attempt is made to answer it, except by the use of arbitrary power". You feel some times as if you were following, up a principle straight to its source, and bad got a tight grip upon it; and it Is exactly so in this case." The Constitution, the President further said, hnd been solemnly received when the people went into the federation. No section of the people, or their representatives, could Ignore or overthrow it, except arbitrarily. By-and-bv, when the people heard the crash of the fabric which they had formerlyprized so highly, when the sound of the falling limbers reached their ears, and they saw the dust aud confusion, they would stop and look up to ascertain who it was that had been doing the work of destruction. That portion of the people which was now un heard would eventually demand by wnat risut a Congress representing a part only of t he States had assumed this responsibility. Formerly when a measure was Introduced, the first ques tion anked wns, "Is It constitutional?" und the next, "Is It expedient?" Now, Congress ou;y asked, "is it expoiiiont?" But, in the Judgment ot the Executive, what was unconstitutional could not be expedient. The Constitution did, indeed, provide for Its own enlargement or amendment, and it was competent lor the people to change It according to the method prescribed. But now the ma jority of the people were voiceless on the ques tion; tney naa no opportunity to mane tnem seives heard. One duty of the Executive was undoubtedly to protect the rights ot the minority, and hence Congress was aiming to mill down the Executive, aud was even threat ening the Supreme Court. It was opposed to the best interests oi tne people tnat tnis at tempt should succeed, aud the Executive still had confidence that the people would dlsoern that truth for themselves. The President presently referred to the al leged abuse which had been committed of the appointing power. He said lhat there was great misconception abroad as to the good whioli the Executive might do for ltseir, or the harm which it might do others, by tho bestowal of offices. Suppose, for instance, that there was a post to be given away. There were sure to be twenty applicants for it; and when It was bestowed all that the President had done was to make one lukewarm friend aud nineteen enemies. The friend was silenced, for after he received the appointment he had to mrtke favor with the Senate iu order to have it confirmed. The man was as HKeiy as not to miow over tue President altogether. It was different wnen tne mcouuvo wna m harmony with the Senate; then the candidate knew that he couia secure a miijuutj body, and he could venture to give his adhesion to the President. In point of fact, the Execu tive had not made more changes than were re quired by the public service not ,so imlj uo were ordinarily made. There was a great out cry because the men who were actually in power nau nueu an tue umc wim wiom it icum and supporters, and they did not want to see them removed. With regard to the threatened impeachment, the President said with a smile: "I had contradicted old world-wide ideas, derived from MagnaCbarta, and sodownwards, respecting the right of the accused to be heard, and to be fairly tried, but these seem to be oninir nnt of date. Now. a committee sittinz in secret, and hearing one side only, and that side the enemies of the accused, prejudge his case. It is a consistent part of the general system which we see being pursued." Frequently during the conversation the Pre sident reiterated his belief that the people would eventually begin to look at all the ques tions now before them from the constitutional side. Heseemedto be content to be Judged by the fidelity and persistence with which he had adhered In bis public policy to the Constitu tion, which his oath obliges him to defend. That oath might as well be rescinded if Con gress aud the country refused to recognize tho Constitution as a law binding upon allaliKe. Certainly the President's opinions with regard to the Constitution are not singular, although few besides himself have the courage to openly proclaim them. There are numbers of lawyers who do not hesitate to admit privately, "the President is right; but what is to be gained by going against one's constituents?" Now and then, however, a publio man is found who is not afraid to declare ills convictions. Judge Black, for example, made a forcible speech in defense of the President aud the Supreme Court. He said in the course of his remarks: "The Judges, and all who think with them, are called traitors because they declare tlie Con stitution to mean what it says, and because they will not violate it themselves or permit Its vio lation by others when they can prevent It. If thisconillct for and against the Constitution implies treason on eltnersiue, tneguut does not lie at our door. It is not the man who sustains, and loves, and believes in the laws of hls coun try it Is not such a man that can be justly called a traitor. But if there be an American citizen anywhere who, with an oath upon bis conscience to support the Constitution, would make war upon It, subvert it by brute force, and take away the defunses it affords to life, liberty, and propertyleaving them to the mercy of mobs, murderers, kidnappers, mili tary commissions, aud bureaus ot military Jus tice, such a man is thoroughly a traitor." Sentiments like .those make a man unpopu lar, and therefore few venture to utter them. The country ought not to be in any doubt as to the objects wnieh the radicals have in view In impeaching the President. It cannot be alleged as a pretext that Mr. Johnson prevents necessary legislation. The majority of two- thirds is secured, ana tne veto can always be rendered Inoperative. What is it, then, that the leaders of the party are seeking ? To place one of their own number In tho Presidential chair, so that the laws which they pass may be carried out at the point of the bayonet, if neces sary. This would inevitably force a revolution almost directly. The safeguard against it now Is that the classes legislated against believe that the President can exercise some restraint upon their antagonists. They do not yet feel that they are delivered over altogether into their hands. This advantage to the country more than compensates for Mr, Johnson's mis takes, whatever they may have been. The radicals wish to revolutionize the Government, and to put a tool of their own into the White House. Do they expect to accomplish all this quietly? They cannot pack the Supreme Court at this moment, for the appointment of the Judges rests exclusively with the President, But a more accommodating Executive could be in duce to place more Judges on the bench, so that law might be Interpreted according to radi cal principles.

Borne time between last Saturday night and Monday morning the extensive United States bonded warehouse tt MesMH. Mll er Coneer, located at the" corner of Water and Union streeto, was visited by a sang of bold and expert burglars, who succeeded in robbing the place of a large quautuy of silk and satin goods and jewelry. It ih supposed that the robbery was committed during Sunday nittbt, as a tlcrk in the employ of the firm was in the store uuring the attef noon, and did not notice anything unusual about thesjlace. The robbery was not dis covered until the warchouso was opened for business yesterday morning. From a subsequent examination of the premises, it appears that the burglars passed through an open lot connected with Brigg's cooperage immediately in the rear of the ware house. Piled close against the fence which separates the yard from the warehouse is a stack ot barrels some' twenty feet hteh. This the burglars clambered over and then dropoe I down into the area In the rear of the store, where they woiked for hours secure from ob servation or Interruption. This position gamed, one of the doors, wh'.ch 1b fastened with but a sincle bolt, was burst or en by means of -a "jimmy;" but here the burglars met a temporary cheek, as several hogsheads ol sugar had been placed close against the door, so that thev could not enter. A similar door a little further on was then forced open, and the burglars, of whom It was pupposcd there were at least three, entered the warehouse. They ascended to the fifth floor, where they burst ODen twenty cases and sacks of goods, containing silks, satins, linens, pop lins, cloths, etc. etc., and ransacked thcin thoroughly. Selecting three cases of elegant goods, belni; a portion of a consignment to Messrs. A. T. Stewart A Co., the burglars emptied some fifteen or twenty bags of rice, strewing the contents about the floor. The baes were then tilled with the costly goods taken from the cases, a valu able quantity of jewelry, which toe tdieves found in a box bclongiiia to a brother-in-law of , Mr. Miller, which bad been left on storage in the establishment. The burglars then divested themselves of their underclothing, and donned new clothes, which they found' in oue of the cases which they had broken open. TheJurglarswith sur prising coolness, then regaled themselves with wines, liquors, nnd cigars, and must have en joyed themselves Immensely, judclnn Irom the numerous en. Dty bottles and stumps of cigars found lying about the floor. Alter carousing to their hearts' content, the burglars left the premises undetected, taking with them eoods amounting in value to between $12,000 and $18,000. Yesterday morning the workmen at Braeg'a cooperate louncJL, three bags oi the goods, valued at $2000, lyine among the boxes and barrels in the yard, which tho burglars were probably compelled to abandon in their flight. How so much property could be removed from the buildinar at night without attracting the attention of the police, seems loexplicable. CaDtain Jameton. of the Seventh Precinct, was notified of the robbery, and male a thorouch examination of the premises. No trace ot the thieves or the property has yet been obtained. Jf. I. World.
