the principle of " who i.? not with us i.- against us,"

The Japanese Expedition and American
[From the London Globe. July 23 ]
The American newspapers, which arc garrulous
enough, and Miflicient-ly communicative on public
as well as private matters, have of !ate been rc
uiaikabiy taciturn on the eubject of the great Yan
kee armada fitting jut in tbo various dockyards of
tie Union, and destined to go forth against tbe
IsJutids of Japan Sonifl months ago the JVne York
Herald intimated that tie Comaioaor.' found consid
erable difficulty in oVitnining a supply of sailors ade
quate to the requirements of a largo squadron; ami
when the superior attraction of the digging* tor nl
vonturoua spirits is borne in mind, that aoald scaroe
have bten otherHi-wi. There i?a natural unwilling
ness on the part of our transatlantic kinsfolk to dis
close the failure of so ?imbitieus a project; and it is
from Amsterdam that the first intelligence of iU be
ing definitively abandoned accordingly comes.
The HandrhUad, of the 18tb, announcing the
fact, states that in place of the "bydi "graphic sur
vey of the Japanese coast," the Americans prefer
employing Dutch meditation? not merely on their
own be b a If, but eu that of the rest of Europe, to
wards the accomplishment of the point, viz .gene
ral free trade witn these obstinate inlanders. When
the peculiar nature of the monopoly Holland enjoys
in this quarter is considered, the alacrity of its
diplomatic efToits, and tbu intensity of its -.eal in
the cause, may be conjectured. There will bo full
time for cutting a ship canal across the neck of
Ltaiien pending the negotiations, and when a fre'b
expedition is ultimately found requisite, but half
the distance will intervene.
Powerful for defensive purposes, and efficient as a
means of domestic security, tho naval and military
resources of the Union are far less available for dis
tant exploits and aggressive warfare. Hitherto tho
arin?ls of the great western republic have only one
record of a su< <-(saful fort ign expedition; and if to
have been victorious over the feeble forces of what
wu* once Mexico can be construed into an acbiovo

Tlx Emigration to Australia.
[Prom the Umpo*l Journal, July 84.]
Tfce tide of emigration has not as jet experienced
an ebb ; it cont nues to flow in one continuous tlool
I towards the shores of New South Wales. Although
I the magnitude ef the movement Might lead to tno
i supposition that the thousand* leaving their native
j eouutry , for ?ne so far distant and to them unknown,
are possessed by an indescribable mania, the infor
mation received from time to time, from persons of
| character and respectability who have been resident
I in Australia many years, convince the moat cautious
that the emigrant? are actuated by the most ration
al views ot improving their condition, rather than
i impelled by a wild spirit of adventure imp^Miblept
lealization. One singular feature in the Australian
emigration is that it lias not chccked in any appre
ciable decree the emigration to America; it is true
numbers leaving this country for America at the
present time are hot so great as tbey were a few
weeks since; but this is incidental to the season,
there being a periodica! check in American emigration
during the harvest iu Englan l; and it is expected
that at its closo the transatlantic exodus will bo
renewed with its former activity. Daring the past
week, three vessels have left the government depot
with emigrants who have gone out assisted by the
Emigration Commissioners. Thoy are: the Flora,
302 adults; the John Davies, 400 adults; and the
Chance, 400 adults. These are not the full number
of human beings, as the aggregate of children is
reduced by a scale to a diminished number, and
reckoned as adults. Four government vessels will
leave next week: the John Grey, Tioonderoga,
Itian he, and Ontario, by which a greater average
of emigrants will be taken than have left by tne
| vessels first named. The private vessels which
bave sailed during the week are the Progress, the
I Otillia, Covenanter, Cambridge, and, we believe,
tome others, oaoh averaging about 300 passengers.
The City ol" Lincoln went into the river yesterday.
The ship Gcorgiana sailed from Greenook, on
Tuesday evening, for Australia, with 300 emigrants
from the Isle of Skyo. The emigrants all talk

The following is an extract from the letter of a
young man who emigrated to Melbourne from Glas
gow ; and the -litre Observer v ouohes for the
accuracy of his statements: ? "V/ith thii gold

A butcher, named Hugh Macgregor, emigrated
about ioui teen y ems ago, from Inverness to Aus
tralia. Following his business for a few yoirs, by
| which he accumulated some little mincy, he pur
, chafed a piece of land. This land being in close
, proximity to the gold regions, it occurred to him to
j make an attempt, like ethers, in quest of the v^Jua
I ble metal. 11 is sucocss was beyond his expectations,
j :ind it turned out that it was among the most valua
ble properties in tLo district. Tne news having
spread liVe wildfire through the country, it intiy ba
imagined Macgregor received many offers for per
mission to dig, but refused all. At length a com
pany came forward who offered him the enormous
1 ?um of X' 0.000, which was accepted, and Huisiean
' Beag rd in d from a life of activity to enjoy tb >
| fruits of his hwriedly- acquired fortune. T ho news
of HugL's success having been lately ri ,eived in
I Inverness, and in his native district, gave such a
I stimulus to all those who could must-jr the "tin"

The Niagara's news revive tbe rumor* of an in
tended marriage between Louis Napolooc aud ;i
Princess of Baden. His recent visit to the Grand
Duchy, aud his reception there, gives color to the
report. The lady is the Princess of Wa a, atxl an
alliance with hir would be a mingling of the blood
I ol' Napoleon with that of the famous Charles XII
We Lave s^me^herc seen the following account cf
the family ? ?
On the 2!i t h of November, 1792, Qustavus the
Thiid, Ktr.g ol Sweden, was murderod at a ball, by
(in officer named Aiikeratrom, from which event fol
lowed many important circumstances, among others,
the most mapmfkant <pecluele ever exhibited in the
Paris theatre!1, which many persons hero bivve no
i doubt teen and admired, under the title cf "Gus

B ill " The murdered king was succeeded by
: h:e ion Gttstavns Adolphus, tho Fourth, then four
teen years old, who joined the famou? coalition
: against France, and was in consequence forccd in
lt*0l>, to abdicate his throne, which was, in 1914,
adjudged by the vo'ce of the people, to tho French
Manlial Bernndutie. The ubmcated King had
married a Princess of Baden, by whom he
had a son and a daughter. After h:s abdication
be separated from nis wife, and spent the re
mainder of his days in poverty and obscurity, ir.
one or arother email town in Germany, under the
name of Colonel Gustufson. Ho died in 1^27, when
his sen, then an officer in the Austrian army, as
sumed the title ol Prince of V'asa, or Wasa, as it is
more commonly written; his daughter married her
cousin the Duke of Baden, and is now Duchess of
I The Prince of W a?a married, in 1S30, the <bmgh ter

1 This lady, in consoejnonce, has in her veins the
blood of tbe old kings of Sweden, Gustavus Vasa,
(Justavus Adolphus, Charle* XII.. &?., mingled
with that of the duke>? of Badon, (nuM of wlicm
' have mude any figure in history.) aa?t with that of
tbe Beauharnoif, of which tho French President is
himself a scion, being the son of Horten?e Beau

This Beauharnais family has been more fortunate
i than any other of modern times, except that of

varia, bv whom he left two sons and two daugh
ters. lhe eldest son married Donna Maria, the
present C^ucen of Portugal, hut unfortunately died a
month afterwmd. The other son, the Prince of
LeuchtenberK. married a daughter of th? Euiperor
Nicholas, ot Kussin, who is determined t<) make liiiu
a King a> soon as a kingdom can be carved for him.
Of th>* two daughters of Eugene Bfauhnmais, the

Opening of Ui* PtrimboitrR flntl road? The
Freaeh President's Tour.
On this Journey of the President, the London
A*tw*i comments as follows: ? "The opening of the
line of railway from Paris to Strasbourg is an event
which Englishmen cannot fail to he interested in.
For whilst it will strengthen, in case of attack, the
military defences of Frances a* againH tbe power of
Germany, Austria and Russia, so it will give to
France, in case of an aggressive war, a line by
which it can mddcnly cros. the Rhine, and pour its
legions into Gtrmany, und whence it can coerce
Switrerlai.d. At each of the termini of this new
Tuilway there is always assembled a grea'. military
force, which this lite will render disposable, and on
the routo there are? at Nancy, Met*, liar le-Due,
and other places? veiy considerable bod es of troops
which it will, in tbe event of any emergency, exter
nal arid internal, release from merely local duties,
and make easily available for general purposes.

tliote pompoao atteutious of prefects and majors to
eei'tial authority, which alike distinguish royalty,
and republicanism, and despotism in Franco, and
which bare nude the modern functionaries of that '
count?y SB pompous and ridiculous as those of tbe

in their provinces on tbe progress of semi royalty;
of tlie country districts, headed by their yeomanry,
making a holiday of a visit to tbe next station,
there to catch a momentary glimpse of the passing

Manchester, to testify to tbe mildness of tbe rule
of the chief they welcome. None of these bursts
of triumph follow Louis Napoleon. In their place

Strasbourg, where the representatives of tbe other
Louis Napoleons of Gcrtnuny appropriately bade
him wclcome. A grout ruler might, however, learn
tbe true interests of France by a sojourn, even brief
as the President's, at Strasbourg. When a free city
of tbe German empire. Strasbourg was prosperous
and wealthy. Tho capital of a conquered province
of France, its industry has dccayed, aad its wealth
and happiness have diminished. Strasbourg now
exists very much at the cost of :be rest of France,
by an en'riuous state expenditure on its great gar
rison, ou its cannon casting foundries, on its toba u;o
manufactory, and on its university ; and by being
the resting point of a great passage into Germany
and Switzerland. AnialgamalioiTwitb France has
deprived Strasbourg of tho trade o? which it flour
ished, by shutting its pates to Germany. President
Honaporte crossed the It bine to review a handful of
Uatiish troojw at Kehl. lie would have done

prices of bread and of beef. For, returning, with
that information, he could then have understood
why Strasbourg does UMt prosper. Between Kehl

is an artificial S*ate, knocked together on an emer

Eotty principality of its onee gallant, but brutal

Death of Marshal Excelmnn*.
On Wednesday evening, the 21st nit., Field Mar
shal ExoelniiiDB was thrown from his horse, on the
road from Sevres, and was killed.
Marshal Excolmans, a French soldier of the empire,
and of the ccnipd'etat of December 2, entered the array
under Napoleon. A brilliant career as a cavalry
officer advanced him to bo grand ccuver to Muraf,
King of Naples, and ho was made by Napoleon

the king, ta whom ae> again swore an attachment
and a devotion inviolable anl ett ru il. Two months

at St. Denis, and accompanied them to the emperor
on Us return from Elba To him he swore tho same
inviolable fidelity, lie took, sjon after, the com

of consumption ro considerable as to deprive the most

quently how loug the natural and obvious influence of
cheap money, already demonstrated in the increased
value of every class of public securities, may be con
tinned, becomes a subject of immediate iutnrest to all
connected with the trade The present work opened
with the tame limited demand which has pre
vailed for several weeks past. The trade bought
sparingly. and the investments of speculators were
limited. On Wednesday both speculator-* and the trade?
in the total absence of any new circumstance of excite
ment? purchased largely; and the sales were 16 000
bales. On Tliurtday th y were 18 0t<0 bales. making the
total f ales of the wet k 64.100 bales. To day there is a
numerous attendance of the trade, and 16X00 biles are
sold, including 7.0C0 taken ou speculation or for export,
at the highest rates of the week. American descriptions
were dull of tale in tho early part of the week, and a
partial decline of one-eighth of a penny per pound was
submitted to ; during the last three days they have been
in pre at request, and the lower and middling qualities
have commanded an advance on last Friday's quota

Delegate! to tKe Mklloul Free Sail Conven
[From the Lowell (Mas*.) American, Ang. 4.]
We publish to day a? largo a list of names of do
legale* as w* Lave been able to procure, in season
to insert in this day's issue. It will be seen that
tbe list presents the names of delegates from every
free B'ate, except New Jersey, Illinois and Cali
fornia, and from the slave States of Kentucky and
Mary Uud A large delegation has been chosen in
Illinois, but we have not been able to prosuro their
names ; und the delegations from Xc* York, Penn
sylvania, Ohio and Iowa are not yet full. Peun
rylvanut holds a State convention at Pittsburg,
next Tuesday, to flil Ml vacancies which may than
appear it) tho delegation from that Scite. In New
York, conventions are beiug held tbo present week
in ceverul of the districts. In Ohio, Lake County
has chosen ono hundred delegates, and several
other oouiities have elected delegates, and in others
Conventions have been called for that purpose. All
tbe free States, with the exoep'.ion, perhaps, of
California, together with several of tbe slave States,
will be represented at the Pittsburg Convention.
This couvention will assemble on Wednesday next,
and, from all that we can gather, it promises to be
one of tbe largest assemblages of tho lYeomen of
the couutry ever convened for such a purpose. Its
proceedings will be read with intense interest by all
classes of politicians.
