Prince Pierre expected to be a Senator, with the 30,000 franc* a year that the President of the republic ha* the Swer of granting, or at least a Councillor of .State, with .000 francs u year; and it hos excited Home surprise | that he is neither oue nor the other; for although he wan a member of tho mountain in the National Assembly, he was never in opon hostility to hi* cousin, tlie President. We subjoin the particulars respecting the question of the dotation of the Prince President, on tho occasion of the consideration of that question by the Senate, in its sitting on the 1st inst : ? M .

Tho President not to enjoy tborcveiiuca of tho forests of tho crown, but to enjoy exclusively the right of sporting in tho forest* of Slurly, St. Germain, Complegne. Versailles, and Fon talncblcnu. The above was unanimously taken into con sideration, and the senators retired to 'he committee rooms to appoint a commission of Ave t.'! report on tho proposition. M. Fould was mimed reporter. Tho report recommended tho adoption of the bill, and a project of a Strain i Cons-uUum was presented, which modified tho original proposition, only so far as to specify that the royal palaces devoted to useful purposes should not be comprised in the number of those allotted to tho Presi dent. M . Fould proposed that an inventory should bo made of the articles of furniture in these palaces. M. do I.awoestein opposed the proposition of tho inventory, on tho ground of its having the appearance of a want of con fidence. The question of the use of the jewel* formerly belonging to the crown is reserved. The Senate will decide hereafter on that question, in the event of tho marriage of tlio President of tho republio. or of a change in hi* position.

The spirit of speculation appears never to have been carried to n pi eater excess at tho Bourse of Paris than in the week ending on the Cth inst. It was crowded to ex cess. and the stockbrokers could with difficulty exoeute the order* of their clients. Tho slight improvement in the commerce of I'aris men tioned last wt t k. had not made much progress since then. It is true that the manufacturers and shopkeepers of Pa ris experienced a similar disappointment at the corres ponding period of lust year, but it was then thought that the commission agent* bud suspended their purchases un til after the opening of the Crystal Palace in London. As no such came exists at present, the manufacturers are beginning to feel uneasy at the slack liens of trade. Tho Inst mails from North and South America have brought but few orders, to the no small disappointment of those who bad manufactured largely in anticipation of a brisk demand for exportation. The accounts from Lynn* and Salnt-Jiticnnc are equally unfavorable. The slight im provement whieh was observable in the silk trade has completely sul>sid< d. and all objects of luxury are quite neglected It is still hoped, however, that a portion, at least . of the 200.000.000f. about to be expended on public works will tlnd its way into general circulation and givo new impetus to trade. Commercial letters received from Koucn. Kouhaix. and Mulliouse are more satisfactory. They slate that woollen stuffs and cotton cloths are in good demand at a remunerating price, and that tho manufacturers are consequently fully employed Tho heavy rain whieh fell here on Monday unit Tuesday last, after nearly six weeks of dry weather, has con siderably improved the appearance of tho young wheat, and removed all immediate apprehensions of a failure of the crop.

The American Kxpedltlon to Japan, In a i French Point of View. [Translated from l.n I'atrie, of Paris, April 1.] The expedition directed by tho United StaUw against th? JapanoMi empire is not one of thnt>e enterprises which can excite the distrust or the jealousy of civilized nation*. Tbqr must. on the contrary, make vows in or der that the expedition real i ten all the hopes which it gives to the other side of tho Atlautlo In Knglanil, the most i 11 ft tic nt ial organs of the press have applauded that great idea; and in that wo enn Fay they htv? answered tlin sentiment* of all tho learned men of the j United States. It cannat bt otHirwiie in h"mnre All tltoso who attach nny value to the extension of relation* among the different people! of the earth, a* means t;f increasing the general well-being. will follow with the liveliest in terest and will give nil their sympathies to thou* hold navigators who art! going to try to open a new and runt field to tho spirit of enterprise, not only for the American people, hut for nil the nations of the universe It is k nown. indeed, that the entry of Japnn is closed in an absolute manner to the foreigners i it' all nations It is thus a will of the jealous and suspicious policy of the government of that country, as a faithful imitator of the traditions followed in the empire of China. H'nr several centuries this interdiction against foreigners liu subsisted, and is maintained with the most extreme rigor, i Sometimes the zeal of Catholic missionaries ha-t hatih'd I the vigilance of the Japanusc authorities; hut they have ' In t n nearly all sacriliced, and tho exertion* of thune dauntless apostles <>t civilisation could not bn'ak or raise the buriicm ft-talilUhi'd by a policy wliich originated in the in>.i.t barbarous religious fuuaticism. A single people of l'.urope ? the Dutch ? have been a< knit ted to tri.flic with the Jnpuntise, and this trade wax bnt for the entry of two vt ssels. evory year, in the port of Nnngasakl. The value of both cargoes was about Ot;t). Tlicy consisted of sugars, tin. oottou thread, black pepper, cloves, lcad.flrwnod. cloths, wools, cam blots, and a quantity of other iirticlos. of less iuiportanco. In return, thexe vessels took cargoes of brass mid cam phor. It is kuown on what shameful conditions the butch merchants had the power to obtain this exclusive privilege. They could not put their foot on the Japanese roil without denying their religion, by trampling over tho image of the cross Now, that obligation is no more ob served, either because tho Dutch have refused to sub mit any longer to it, or that the Jupauuao govern ment has consider! d It as useless. 1 he exclusive policy of Japan was not only directed 8 gainst tlie Western pi opto, hut the Eastern people, (with the exception of the Chinese,) were equally put under tho ban of the i mpire. Tho Chluese junks are admitted In the portnf Nangamki. We have already remarked. Ill announcing the depar ture of the American expedition, the importance of its results to the commerce of the world. One may judge of its importance, nhon be thinks that the Japanose Ar chipelago has a population estimated by the mo*t mode rate of travellers to bo 30.000,000 of inhabitants (some wiy 46.000 liOO) ; that that country is rich in produot* of every kind, which constitute vast means of exchange in the commerce of nations. W hat England did in China, twelvo years ago, tho United States arc going to attempt In Japan. Now a-day f? thanks to the success of the expedition of Admiral Cochrane ? the principal ports of China are opened to tho vessels of all nations of tho world; and "hatovor wore tho motives for tho Kngllsh policy, in tii.it case, wo cannot do less than applaud, in the n.nno of tho inte rests of commerce anil civilization, the advantages that the has obtained for them, and which have been enjoyed ever unco. We have stated the force* which will compose the Ame rican expedition. The United States journals do not ap pear to have the least doubt of it* success. That is also tlio opinion of the English newspapers. " Indeed," Buy* the London Tints. "although the Japanese area more warlike race than the Chinese race, they could not do any thing against the cannon* uf the three frigates. And again, tlio shores are well known to the American whaler*, and also the .Strait of Sangora, which separates Nipbon front 'l oo, the two principal islands of the Japauoac em pire." It in possible that Commodore Perry may encounter, in the execution ot the enterprise oonfided to him, unfore seen obstacles; but they cannot stop a great nation like America. Tho immense resources which she has at her disposal will permit her to happily end. sooner or later, an expedition, the succcss of which interests her commerce to so high a degree. it is asserted that, fearing the dangers which threaten it. the Japanese government has asked t ho aid of the Lower Countries, in order to obtain their mediation with tho l/Dited .States. We strongly doubt whether or not the Lower Countries wish to take charge of such negotiations. To accept it. they would aet against their own intercut, for the Dutch commerce can but profit by tho removal of the interdiction which fulls upon the Hags of other na tion* in the Japanese ports. We repeat it, the civilizcd nations nan only gee with pli ui ure the success of an cnte^rise. in tho ia-uti of which tliey have a direct, incontestable advantage; and France, in herself, must derire its succetia, and prepare herself t ? take a part in its iuimeiuo resulta.

Tho other boats, as is usual in such cases, were not forthcoming in the hour of need. One gig and two cutters were all that could be rendered available. In one account we find that when tho men wore ordered to gnt tho paddle-liMX boats out. the pin of thn davits was rusted in. and could not be got out.

Never wm destruction mure sudden or mom complete. Within fifteen minutes after the vessel struck. the how broke short olT. Fire minutes more elapsed. and the hull of the vessel went in two, cross ways. jn.-t abaft the on gine-rooni The stern jmrt of the vessel immediate ly surged. filled, and went down. The only hope of thosjir vivors lay in the main topmost and m:iin topsail yard, which still showed above water.

Captain Wright asserts, that of tho VOO persons, more or less, who were clinging to the drill* wood when ho got away, nearly every uian might have l ien taved had one of the ship's boats done her duty. Into this boat the ussistant surgeon had got, with el^ht men. Ihey immediately pulled away, and landed about 15 miles from the vessel. The fact appears to have beci^ fliat the poor creatures who were clinging to the drift wm.d had been carried hy the swell in the direction 1'olnt Danger. There they got entangled among tho m awn d, which ut this point of the coast is thick and of Immense length. Cuptain Wright's opinion Is. thut had not the ussi>tatit-aurgeon carried off the boat, or even had the boat pulled hack to the accne of the disaster, after landing the med'cul gentleman in safety, the majority of these person* might have been picked off the seaweed, it only remains for u* to mention here thut Captain Sal mond. who appears to have done his duty after tho ves sel struck, has nut survived thu calamity. When lust seen alive, he was swimming from tho stern- po.-t of tho ship, which had just gono down, to u portion ??f the fore castle-deck, which was floating nljout 'M yards from thn main body of the wreck; something struck him ou tho back of the head, and he never rose again.

In presence of so abrupt and dis tressing a catastrophe, which liaa swept awa.v a statesman of such aeiuarkable eaifnonce, Irom the pride i f empire and the vigor of nunihood, the harsher judgments of poli tical liflu are hushvl. and we call most willingly to mind tlii.se tunlitiis of the late Imperial Minister which en? til< d b.m to n scu^ his sovereign and his country froin unex'impli d perils.
