II Will there be War Between England and If tbe United States ? SHE MARKETS, | Ac., &c., &c. The Cunard steamship Niagara, Capt. Stone, ar- ! lived at this port at half-past seven o'clock last evening. She left Liverpool on Saturday noon, the 29th nit. ?She brings thirty-three passengers, a full cargo, and three days later news from Europe. Among the passengers we notice the name of Chevalier Halsenuum, late Austrian Chargi W Affaires to this country. The Humboldt, henoc, arrived at Southampton on the 28th nit. The news by the Niagara is not of any impor tance. Cotton was firm at the previous advance. Bread Sferift were down a little. The Montenegro war continued. Letters from Catt&ro, of the 21st, in the Trieste Gazette, announce that the districts of Labine, Kulassin, Zupanisicka, Zoboe, and Kraiscevice, in Herzgovine, have de clared for the Montenegrins. Austria is sending treope to Dalmatia to protect her frontiers. , The arrangements for the marriage of Napoleon were nearly oompleted. The Empress Eugenia has Vety sensibly written to the corporation of Paris, declining to accept their present of jewelry, and suggesting that they had better lay out the money In works of charity. It was said that an amnesty, 00 an extensive scale, would be promulgated imme diately after the marriage. There is very little news of interest from any of thp other continental cities; commercial affairs were reported as somewhat improving, but there was lit tle alteration-in monetary matters. The minor was stiU current in Paris, that a modi fication of the Ministry was about to take place. M. deMorny, it was said, would succeed M. Drouyn de L'huys; M. Magne was spoken of for the Finance De partment, and General Randon for the War office. The Comercio of Cadiz announces that the steamer Nteeida and the transports Pinto and Marigalante were shortly to sail for Havana with a reinforcement of troops for the army of Cuba. The Neptuno was to proceed to the Canary Islands, and the Guadal quivir to Porto Rico. The health of the Countess of Chambord is in an alywrfng state, and physicians have expressed little liQpe of her recovery. Ice has risen in London to 18s. per cwt retail; four months since it sold at 14s. a ton. Field-Marshal Paskic witch arrived at St. Peters burg from Warsaw on the 11th. Tne railway from Dusseldorf to Aix-la-Chapelle was opened the whole way on the 17th ult. The police authorities of Milan have prohibited the use of masks at the approaching carnival. It is also forbidden to throw conandole in the streets. The Rhine rose, on the night of the loth ult., seven feet. The following day the stream continued to rise one to one and a halt' feet in every hour. ?Tbe great military activity in Poland increases ?very day. The number of soldiers in Poland at this moment is not less than 80,000. The cholera had sot yet disappeared. A letter from Bordeaux, of the 18th, states that there were then 200 vessels in the roads, which \ could neither enter the river nor put to sea, in conse quence of tbe bad weather. j The Genoa Mercantile Corriere of the 20th an nounces the discovery of a lead mine, containing sil ver, in the neighborhood of Ardesia, in the Lombar j do- Venetian kingdom. The electric telegraph of Savoy was opened on ' the 18th inst., at Turin, in presence of the President 3 of the Council, several of the minister*, the arch btahop, and a number of the high functionaries. It is reported that the Spanish frigate Don Fran > ctoco d'Assis, just arrived at Havre, is commissioned to receive a sum of 12,000,000 f., lent to the Spanish government by the house of Rothschild. WU1 (lure be Wnr between England and the United States 1 The meetings of the friends of international arbi tration and peace, commenced at Manchester on Thursday, the 27th of January. The first meeting of the conference was held at the Corn Exchange, when Mr. G. Wilson was elected Chairman, supported by Mt. Cobden, M.P., Mr. Bright, M.P., Mr. J. B. Smith, M.P., Mr. Joseph Brothcrion, M.P., Mr. G. Iladtield, M.P.,Mr. Joseph Sturge, Mr. C. Hindley, M.P., and other members of the Legislature and persons of dis tinction. Mr. Bright, M.P., in the course of along speech, made the following comments upon the United States : ? Recently there was a case, and a very interesting: one, Which has been alluded to ? in one sense, I had almost Mid, unfortunately, it did not go to arbitration ? but, ]ftobably because it might have gone to arbitration, the powerful nation that was in the wrong gave way. You recollect a discussion lately, in the papers, about the Lobos Islands, in the Pacific ? islands in which there arc do poults ef a manure wortli in thin country many pounds a ton, mad likely to be of great advantage to the Peruvian gov eminent. Attempts were made to involve our co intrv in a squabble with the Peruvian government with regard to the possession of those Hands, but the Foreign Minister, 1 believe, Lord Palmerston first, and Isird Malinesbury af terwards, declared that we had no right or tiUc to them, and, whether they belonged to Peru or not, he wag not tbe person to Kettle, but, as they did not belong to us, , we (could bare no pretcnce for going there. But .the ? United States for a moment took a different course, and . a Minister of the United States ? since then taken from ? among them ? a Minister, perhaps, one of the most elo quent men at any rate that the United States ever pro duced?Mr. Webnter took a different view from our For eign Minister, and insisted upon it that those islands t belonged to the United States, and shipi went olf to > those isles under the impression that that which tho American Secretary of State had declared to bo the law. would be maintained by the forces of the United Slate*. But what was the result? There is a treaty between tho powerful nation of the United States and the comparatively fteble nation of Peru, and that treaty lias a distinct clause to this effect, that wherever any matter shall arise, any dispute between those two countries, it shall be at once relsrred to corn tent persona to decide, and both nations bind emselves to accept the award. (Heat, hear.) Well, now look at the advantage to Peru In such a case as thati The navy of the United States could sweep from tbe seas the navy of Pern. Peru gained immeasurably by baying such a treaty as that, provided it went to arbitra tion. and provided that Peru was right. The United States would gain, because, there being a treaty, no meddling, ?elfish, grasping portion of our community could drive om government to war. "There is the treaty," the Secre tary of State might say; "I eannot send ships of war to defend our aosoult upon the Lobos Islands; it is a mat ter in dispute, and we must refer U to impartial persons; H is neoessary for the character of a magnanimous nation like ours, that whatever be tbe award we must po sitively abide by it." The question was not referred to arbitration; there was no award. The American govern ment?it may be, knowing that there was that elaus?? it nay be, from further Investigation ? became convinced that right was with the Peruvian government; and, therefore, all that had been said by the American Secre tary was ignored, fresh instructions were given, and the claim of the Peruvian government to those Islands was at once finely, fully admitted. Now, why should we not all have precisely the same arrangement} The other day. the Timet newspaper, which is taking a very jndioious and an admirable course in the tone with h which it writes on almost every matter connected with II United States ? I wish it* tone was as fair and as I;' Impartial with regard to ail other matters ? (cheers) ? The Timet newspaper, commenting upon a dinner which ! baa recently been given to Mr. Ingersoll, the American minister, at Birmingham, said what ought to be done between England snd America ? I do not give the precise . words, bat the precise meaning is that we should resolve never to go to wac. Why, that is precisely what we want I to resolve in thin meeting this morning. (Applause.) j But bow are you to resolve never to go to war with the United States? Does any man believe ne points of difference will ever ari*e? Don't we know there are j Arsons in the United States reckless enough ? as there la always n class in this country ? to get up un easiness and excitement, and, if possible, even to get up war? Hut the good men, the intelligent men, the moral men, the Christian men, and the bulk of men in both countries, are in favor of peace. (Applause.) Why, then, why should not this great majority in both coun j tries rctolve that we will nt-ver go to war; that, as re gards the treatment of one nation by tho other, we have u o idea of swindling, or cajolii'K. or dragooning the Uni ted States, nor have they any such idea of us 1 Wo can light, "n<^ B0 can they. The resources of the tw o coun tries ma," "aid to be almost inexhaustible; the indus try of the countries productive bsyond ail former ex ample upon tl.'c face of the earth. But that only men surfs the amount- of damage which each country might ' do the other ( 'Hoar, hear," and applause), and only glies you some indication of tho necessity and the wis dom < f doing that which ti'C Times recommends, and ne ver to go to war with each other. (Applaud.) Take the fi-heries' question that has Jately been discussed. There whs a ca< e in point. Whifct was the first thing done f People here wanted to know how many ships wont going; and, in America, a squadron that wu? ordered to J? pan wa.i countermanded, and tho ships wcrvtj go to the Banks and to that part of tho ocean whe?o those B>herios wero principally carried on. But suppose we had had a clause in our treaty with the United State* i-uch as the United States has with I'eru. It would nofnave hi en n que.stioji of sending ships; nobody in Kngland,' not e.en the Mancha'er Guardian, would have written anhr ticle in favor of sending Hhips of war; but the first tfctug thut would have been done would be to republish in every paper, in Kngland the arbitration clause in this treaty, and then the Fole mutter to be discusned would be this where shall we find the men ? who are the m?n ? to ?horj? both tuitions will trust, the decision of this question? And' I must sav lor myself, that 1 believe there aro men in the United States to whom alone ? as I believe thero aro mm in this country to whom alone ? both countries might commit the decision upon a question affecting both counti ies and 1 believe it would be decided according to that which was just to both of them. The French Expedition to the Chinese Seas. [From the I'aris Moniteur, Jan. 26.) Tlio Minister of Marine has just receive^from Cap tain Roquemaurel, commanding the naval subdivi sion in the Chinese seas, a report, giving a quantity of information collected on hoard the Capricieuse State corvette, in a voyage from Shanghae to Guam, across the Sea of Japan and the Strait of Matsmai, during the months of July, August, and Septem ber, 1862. The hydrographical portion is of great importance, as seamen have hitherto bad to sail by the chart of La Perouse, and by those laid down on the data furnished by Brougbton at the end of the last century. The Capricieuse has surveyed trigonometrically the eastern coast of Co rea and Chinese Tartary for an extent of 130 leagues. It results, from the information given in this report, that seamen who dread at present the stormy sea of Japan, on account of the inhospitality of its inha bitants, will henceforward find safe anchorage and eveir facility to effect repairs in the Gulf of Anville, on tne coast of Tartary, situate nearly on the same parallel (42 deg.) as the Strait of Matsmai, from which it is only 130 leagues distant. AJthough the countiy ? in general but little wooded ? doerv not offer any great resources, at least a cordial reception may be reckoned on from the Tartar tribes, who oome in the fine season to encamp on this coast tc feed their herds of oxen and catch seals. Whales are to be frequently seen in these latitudes. The Capricieuse fell in with several, both on tke coast of Tartary and on that of Corea. The accounts given by the old missionaries agree in declaring that at the approach of winter the whales, driven away by the ice of the Folar Sea from Behring's Strait and tho Sea of Ochotsk, proceed to the southern part of tbe Japa nese Sea. The whalers, not venturing to pursue tbem during the bad season into these inhospitable latitudes, have been accustomed to pass the winter doing nothing, in the Sandwich Islands, tbe Mari anne Islands, or the Carolines. There is reason to imagine that our whalers, after having exliausted.the fishing season in Behring's Strait and the Sea of Ochotsk, would find a great advantage in falling back on the south, and continuing tkeir fishing in the sea which the Capricicuse passed through. The months of October, November, and part of Decem ber could be profitably employed in that quarter, while waiting for the severe weather to force tbem to take up their winter quarters. The bay of Yung Kinq, on the coast of Corea, and the gulf of Anville, on that of Tartary, appear to be. perfectly well situated for such stations, where the wnalers, after having placed their vessels in perfect Bafety, could continue their fishing in time bays with boats. Tbe coasts, although not well sup plied, would still afford sufficient resources to be profit able to the crews. The Capricieuse entered tne Pa cific Ocean on the 22d of August, and set sail for Guam, where she arrived on the 12th of September. On the 18th of October, after having devoted some time to repairs and to the repose of the crew, she left the port of Apra for Manilla, where she ar rived cn the 6th of November. This long voyage from Japan to the Philippines, in seas but little known, and in the midst of hazy weather, which prevailed almost incessantly, was marked by no other incident to the vessel than a violent hurricane, which came on about 100 leagues to the east of the Bushce Islands. The vessel, however, suffered no damage; and it may be said that the cruise of the Capricieuse, for the purpose of favoring the progress of commerce, navigation, and hydrographical infor mation, has been accomplished with perfect success. The Condition of Mexico? What Is to Become ofHerl [From the T-ondon News. Jan. 27.] The news brought by each succeeding mail only aggravates th state which, Arcadia of nations ? that of being without any government at all. Tho federalism has had its half decade of longevity without consolidating the separate states into one homogeneous com bination, abating the resentments of parties, or rendering law and obedience superior to insubordi nation and an appeal to arms. Tne tenure of Arista's power seems, however, nearlyrun out; he has neither money nor credit, authority nor force, resolution nor capacity to arrest either his own downfall, or that of his cause. He lately repressed the liberty of the press; but he has not the ability to check the pro gress of disorder and military insurrection; he has called together a Congress which, in the midst of a revolutionary emergency, has weakened the power of the government by impeaching one minister, and compelling another to resign. On the other hand, the unitarian, or central party, instigated, no doubt, by their old leader, Santa Anna, from his exile in Cuba, has fairly risen in the' provinces against the federal constitution. On the Atlantic, the State of Vera Cruz bns long been in a chronic condition of insurrection, which renders it almost impassable. At the moment when the central government was about to use such forces as it could command for its pacification, Mazat lan in the I'acific, rose against its authority, and drew thither all its disposable military strength. From Mazatlan, which in in tne State of Sonora, insurrections spread to the adjoining State of Cuadalaxero; thence, OTcrlenping J?otosi, it broke out in Tainauiipas, which ad join* the province of Vera Crui, on tie opposite coast; and it is now extending itself to the States of Guanaxuto and Quei ataro, which compresa in and command Mexico itfeif. Thus, an our readers will see by glancing at the map, the whole line of Atlantic roast from the Rio Bravo del Norte to what is known as the route of Tehuantepec, and the I'acific shore, from the head of the Gulf of Cali fornia nearly to the State of Mexico iti-olf, are, more or less, in arms against the present government and the presentfeonstitution of the republic. Nor is this a purposeless movement. Its aim ia the restoration of the system and the power of Santa Anna. The revolutionists of Cuadalaxero have al ready called on that chief to return; Gen. Uraga, who has now placed himself at their head, and com mands a force in that State superior to any the gov ernment can aend against him, is a partisan of Santa Anna; and the insurgents have summoned an extra ordinaiy Congress, to be composed of two deputies from each State, to electa President, ad interim, and to proceed to the reformation of tho present consti tution. With scarcely strength tg> maintain them selves in the capital, and without the support and hearty co-operation of any single State, it m scarcely within the limit* of possibility that the federal gov ernment and federal institutions of Mexiao can long withstand such a combination. And yet how hopeless appears any change of government, of constitution, or of authority in Mexi co. Since the federal system was first inaugurated, in 1824, it has been overthrown and restored, abolished and revived, until it ia a matter of per plexity to know what form of government is pre dominant in Mexico. Bnt whether Federalism or Unitarianism has prevailed; whether Hostamente, Santa Anna, or Arista have been in power ? the course of Mexico has been uniformly downward. The republic has lost territory after territory; pro vince after province haa proclaimed its independence* the nativefaboriginee have gone back in the career of civilisation ; the red Indiana have ravaged even the great central plateau on which stands the city of Mexico; revenue and commerce have fallen ofq debt and expenditure gone on increasing; until . now Mexico is in a state of dissolution aa a nation. Military ehiefe may plague it bv insurrection, and the populace, demoralized by too church and the army, may be used for political purposes; but to the wealth, the intelligence, and the virtue of Mexico, the continuance or such nationality as has for tho last twenty years afflicted them, la not deqirabta. in truth, the They sigh for order, tranquillity, law, and industry, and these they cannot find amongst the sanguinary quarrels of federalists and centralists. The difficulty of any solution of the Mexican ques tion is very Placed midway between the oc cidental and oriental worlds separating the Atlantic and Pacific ocaana ? occupying the position of another Egypt ? it is, however, for the interests of mankJnd that the two shores, or at least the narrower and more passable portions, should be under the rule ami authority of the same government, otherwise the ob stacles to transit will be increased. To the people of the great valley of the Mississippi, now in separably connected with the wealth of tne Pacific, a route across Mexico must always be an object of paramount importance ; and it is not thereiore to be wondered at thatjtlio Ameri can government pay inch undeviating attention to 1 the route tl ?t might so easily be formed across the ihthmus of Tehuautepee. Even the pacific and un Hmbitious President Fillmore has always enforced the rights alVged to have been acquired by his countryman under what is called the Garay grant ; even the mode/ate and philosophical Mr. Everett has adopted tlis doctrine of expansion ; and it is not difficult to feresee that, under the forthcoming presidency of the bolder General Pierce, that ques tion will in mediately rise in interest. Hence it is that, in rvftt -ence to that Presidency, the importance of some stable government being at once established in Mexico bi"o omes so pressing. Bnt with the avowed designs of the United States on Mexico, an d with the present determination of the inhabitant* of the Mississippi to acquire an easy route to the Pjm? 'fic; in the presence of such dangers as now environ that republic and disturb its tran quillity; looking ? to the important position a country so situated must Jv "reiUter play in the intercourse be tween the West m d the Kast; and recognising the fact that either ttart ugh Mexico or Central America tbo relations of CM a, and even Japan, to the rest of the world mnst ry soon undergo a great chahge ? there can hardly be a question of more general in terest either to Eurnj* or America than the tendency of passing occurrence* in that cointry. For conquest or am exation, Mexico is probably too populous and to? extensive. By degrees the United States wilU no> idoubt, encroach further and further on its territories, i stripping them as artichokes are eaten, leaf by leaf. But the acquisition of the whole at any early peri<4 is a very hazardous con tingency. llithorto, the- ignited States have made no conquests of countries; 1 'retending to self-govern ment. In California, ii.w ed, they got a desert which lias turned out ail TBI Dorado. But in Mcxico there arestill left upwards i even millions of people, of different races no doubt, bui none as races friendly to the Americans. Religio n, langnage, habits, manners, pride and vanity, all enormous difficulties, have to be overcome in Mexiea 1 ; and though Ame rica will, we may be nnra, kee.n the acquisition of that country Btea'dily in view, Y ankee annexation is not the immediate danger whiclt threatens Mexico. Its urgent difficulty is that of establishing any form of government that can be depended upon for twel ve months. England.

The non-an-iyal of any large proportion of the ves sels known to be on their way with gold from Aus tralia, causes disappointment in London. Nearly a million and a half sterling was at sea previous to last ady-ices via Singapore, and it is probable the Great Britain and Sydney steamers are now within four or five weeks of their return with an equal amount. At tfie same time the exportation of goods has been go ing on to an unprecedented extent, and is increasing, so that Australia is at present debtor to shipments from England, say ?3,000,000 sterling. Some specimens of Canadian gold from the St. Joseph district, on the Chaudiere river, have been tested by Thomas, Abell & Co., and are worth 3i grains worse than standard, with 28 dwts. of silve per id. The Treasury advertises a guaranteed loan to Jamaica of ?50,000. Robert F. Pries, the forger, Is fully committed for trial on two charges.

The Emperor's marriage, though taking people by surprise, has not been exactly a nine days' wonder; and the public Las, for the last two or three days, looked upon it almost as a matter of course, and have ctasod to be surprised. From the present state of public feeling, always, of course, excepting political circles, there is reason to anticipate that the future Empress will be generally popular. A great deal wilT, of course, depend upon herself, and the imme diate friend.-' and advisers by whom she may be sur rounded. It is something in favor of the Countess of Teka that she appears to have earned the dislike of a few well knowu characters, who, to the disgraco of Parisian society, are tolerated in it; and it argues well for the decency of the future court of the Kin press that such persons should be among the first to assail her. With reference to the discreditable stories that have been current, and the sceneof which was laid at Compeigne, it is positively asserted that these stories were false. People are now speculating as to the answer that will be received from foreign courts on the notifica tion of the Emperor's marriage being made to them; and it is surmised that some expressions in the ad dress will be considered as rather wounding to their dignity, or their umour projtrc , and may produce a corresponding reply. In several political circles comments have been freely made, and the term used with reference to Austria hi particular, alluding to the marriage of the Arch Duchess Marie Louise, has, it appears, given some offence. The crown jewels have, it appears, been delivered, with the accustomed ceremony, to the Minister of State by the Minister of Finance. They had remained in the treasury since the night of the 24th February, 1848, where they had been deposited by some faitu ful servant of Louis Philippe. It is Btated that some, which were estimated at 150,000 francs, disappeared during the anarchy of the early part of the revolu tion. It has been decided that the Empress shall wear a diadem, on her entrance to the catncdral, the civil marriage being considered as raising her to sovereign rank. The ministerial papers state that all the des patches received by the government from the de partments are unanimous in testifying to the satis faction experienced by the people at the Emperor's ^marriags. The peasants and operatives are said to have expressed the warmest enthusiasm at reading !fce communication from the Emperor to the Senate and corps ikgislat if. A decree of the Emperor makes the following naminationtfin the household of the Emprem: ?

M. Auber has been nominated C Lapel Master to the Emp?ror. ? Ban e Lionel ltothschild, of London, has received a sneci.d invitation to attend the wedding. Some.- persons sjy that if the Pope will not corae to Paris to crown t%e Emperor and nis consort, th?y will proceed to Heme to havo the ceremony pe> formed. The Emperor is said to have declared so, and the quidnuncs are trying to make out of the expression something more than it bears on its face. We sej it mentiiwed in a Scotch paper, which gives the genealogy of Countess Montijo's Scotch ancestry, thatWilian Kirkpatrlck, her grandfather, was American (not British) Consul at Malaga. This, we suppose, can easily be verified. MM. Mesnard and Drouyn de L'hnys, Gen. Bara guay d'Hilliers, and Regiiaud de St. Jean d'Angely are named Vice PreshJents of the Senate; Mm. Bil lault. Schnieder, and Reveil, Gen. Vast-Vimeux and M. Hibert, President, Vice President, and Questors of the Legislative Corps. The Senate and Legisla tive body are convoked for the 14th February. Prince Napoleon Boaaparto has been named Ge neral of Division ? some say as a salve for the morti fication he feels at th? Emperor's marriage, and at being himself rejected by the Princess of.Wagram, with whom, it appears, his projected alliance is definitely broken on. The Prince made it a condi tion that he should be appointed to a military rank, prior to accepting the Lieutenancy of Algeria. Prince Napoleon is but thirty years of age, has no military experience, and his appointment to so high a rank is not pleasing to military men. Tho civil contract of marriage took place yester day, and the religious ceremony will bo celebrated with immense pomp in the church of Notre Dame, on Sunday, 2!ith, at noon. The city of Paris has Voted to the Empress a diamond necklace of the value of 600,000 francs. The Paris Moniteur gives tho following programme of the ceremonials;? Ihe civil marriage of the Emperor will be celebrated on the 2!Jth at the Tuilleries.

The Imperial brido will be rectived at tho foot of the staircase of tho pavi lion by the Grand Chamberlain, the grand Equerry, two Chamberlains, and the orderly officers on duty, and con ducted to the family laUm , Where the Emperor will await her coming. At the entrance of the first salon, their Im perial Highnesses Prince Napoleon and the Princess Ma thilde will receive the Imperial bride and the party will proceed towards the family tahm. The Emperor will liave near him his Imperial Highness l'rince Jerome Napoleon, and such others of his family as His Majesty sliall have appointed. Around the Emperor will stand tho Cardinals, the Marshals and Admirals, tho Ministers, the grand offi cers nod officers of his household, and the Ambassadors and Ministers Plenipotentiary of His Imperial Majesty now in Paris. The Grand Master will receive tho orders of the Emperor, and the cortege will proceed to the Salle des Mareelmux, where the ceremony of tho oivil mar riage will be accomplished. The persons invited by His Majesty will have been placed by a master of the ceremonies, aided by two assistants. At the end of the Salle, next the garden, two similar chairs of state will have been placed on an estrade ? one on the right for tho Fmperoi, and the other on the left for tho future Empress. At the foot of the estrade, on the left, will bo placed a table, on which will lio the civil register of the family of the Emperor. On the entrance of His Majesty and of the future Empress, the ladies will rise, and remain standing, as well as the persons present, to the end of the ceremo ny. I he Emperor being seated, the Grand Master of the ceremonies will call on the Minister of State, exercising the functions of officer of the civil state, attributed to him by article eight of the Senaim contulium of th?2fith of December last, anil assisted by the President of the Coun cil of State, appointed to that effect by his Majesty, to proceed before the chair of the Emperor. The Minister of State will receive the declarations of tho Emperor and of her Excelleucy Mile. Eugenie de Montijo, Countess of Tcba, and will declare them united in marriage. The President of the Council of State will present a pen to the Emperor, and next to the Empress. The act will be sign ed by their Majesties, by her Excellency the Coun tess "de Montijo, by the Minister of Spain, the l'rinccs and 1'iincesses according to their rank, and by the wit nesFes appointed by his Majesty. After the eeremony the Empress will be conducted back to the Elyst'e, with the ceremonial observed for her coming. The Imperial cortege of the marriage will, on 2nitting the Tuileries, pass through the Triumphal irch to the Place dn Carrousel, and will afterwards proceed along the Quays du Louvre, dc I'Ecole, de la Megisserrie, and de ?evre; it will then cross the Pont Notre Dame, and will rcach the Cathedral by the Quai Napoleon, the Roe d'Arcole, and the Place du Parvis Notre Dame. The decortitionsfiof the Cathedral of Notre Dame for the marriage are proceeding rapidly under the direction of MM. Viollet-Ledne and Lassus, the architeots charged with the repairs of the church. The high altar, as already stated, is to be removed to the entrance of the choir, and behind it will be a gallery with ogives. A vast canopy in crimson vel vet, surmounted by a gigantic eagle bearing an imperial crown will do placed above it, and will be made to extend over tfee B laces to be occnpled by their Majesties. l>pm ie crown velvet draperies will extend to the pillars ' of the choir. The choir will not be occupied, it hav ing been determined te place tho orchestra, which whI be five hundred strong, near the organ. In the branches of the I.atiu crosH will be woodwork similar to that of the gallery at the entrance of the choir, and there will also be recesses, painted sky-bVne, In which will be placed on one side statues of the Kings of France, on the other tho Archhfehops of the diocese of Paris. The pillars of the ehoir and the nave will be decorated with green velvet, orna mented with golden bees, and with the initials and aims of their Majesties. Flags bearing the arms and colors of the departments of France, will be sus pended in the choir, and the roofs both of the choir and the nave will bo decked with banners and streamers of all colors, so as to hide the bareness of , the stone. Estradeq will be erected In the cross to the right of tlir altar for the Senate and Diplomatic Body, to the left for the Legislative Body, and the Council of State. Estrades will also be placed on each side of the nave for the judges, the staffs of the anny, and the prin cipal public functionaries. The? middle of the nave will be left free for the passage of their Majes ties and their hou*>ebolds; and they alone will eiiter by the great door. The galleries looking on the nuve and choir will be occupied, and a portion of them will be specially set apart for the ladies of the Court. The facade of the Catuedral will be deco rated with Iwnners und escutcheons bearing the arms of the towns of France, with Hags of all colors, with green draperies strewed with golden beta, and with wreaths ol' Sowers. In front of the great door will be a vast portico, in which the carriage of the Emperor can enter. This portico v.JJl be decked with draperies, uud similar porticos \?<11 be placed In front of the other doors. From the arcades of the porticos will be suspended escutcheons bearing the initials " L.-(Louie)f' and " E. (Eugenie1)." Above the porticos will be equestrian statues of the Empe ror Charlemagne and the Emperor Napoleon I. In what is called the (ialcrie dtes Kois, statues similar to those deBtroved sixty years ago will be placed in the niches. The towers will be surmounted by six teen gignntic eagles. The military service at the Elys&e daring the last four days, has been performed there exactly accord ing to the style enforced there by the first Napoleon. A great many English visiters have arrived in Paris during the past two days; the city is very gay at present, the hotels are full, and some brilliant frte.i arc announced for next week, in honor of the Emperor's marriage. Immediately after the imperial marriage, if not on Sunday morning, it is Btated in well informed quar ters, that an amnesty will be published, extending to those political offenders who were exiled at the eriod of the coup d'etat*, but n^t to those who have een subsequently sentenced to banishment or im prisonment. This measure is ascribed to the inter cession of the intended Empress. The contemplated ministerial changes announced a few days ago, but officially denied in the Moniteur, are again spoken of with renewed confluence, it is believed that not one of the Ministers who expressed an opinion hostile to the Emperor's marriage with the Countess de Teha will retain office. The Municipal Commission of Paris have voted 600, OOOf. for a diamond necklace, to be presented to the future Empress of France, and 300,00?f. to be de voted to particular acts of charity, in commemoration of the Emperor's marriage. The future Empress has written a letter thanking the Municipal Council for their intended offering of rich presents, but preferring that the amount should be devoted to some charita ble institutions. The Council have iust come to the determination of founding an establishment for the purpose of giving house education to poor females. A line of electric telegraph is now being establish ed between Bologne and Calais. The Minister of the Marine has just received de spatches from the lie do la Reunion, dated She 27th of November. The accounts contained in them are most satisfactory. The cultivation pf vanilla has ac quired considerable developement; it was cspected that the crop of this year would produce from. 400 to ?00 kilogrammes. On Monday there was a still further decline in the Rtntes, beyond the depression note# on Saturday. Tie attempt aaade by some agents to realise ?t Fri day's improvement, proved quite unsuccessful, and &n additional fall of 40c. toox place on the Three per Cents, ani of 20c. on the Four-and-a-H ilf per Cents, the formar closing at 79f. 80, and the latter at 10tf.

The announcement which was made at the opining of the Bourse on Wednesday of a new Prussian loan for twenty millions of rix dollars, which " wvold have been" (sic) taken by the house of Rothschild A Co., baa materially contributed to a revival cf the French funds from their recent depression. The Thrce-per-cent Rentes, whicn opened at 79f.65, gradually advanced until they had reached NCf. 25 for the aaoount, at which quotation they stood at the close of bsieiness. The Four-and-a-half per cent? also partok of the improvement, leaving off at 10Sf., beiJTf 30c. higher thnpthe closing tigurs o Tuesday. "Bank stock still remains nominally a 2,820f.; although the permanency of any of these prices must' be regarded with such degree of faith as the persons most conversant with French mone tary matters may place upon the indice laid before them daily.. At the termination of business on the Bourse-, on Thursday afternoon, a general advance was rep'/rt-ed in the. quotations of all kinds of French secuiities. The Three-per-cents, which opened at HOf. 25, closed at H0f. 65 for the account: and the Four-and-a-half per cents were publicly called 105f. 30 at the close of business, being a rise of 40c. on the former, and -30c. on the latter stock, from the last prices of Wed nesday. The Phare de la Manche announces that tlie choice of the French Transatlantic Packet station will soon be made. The government eommi.ssi<xi has concluded its inquiries, having previously consulted with the Chamber of Commerce, at IParis, cn the subject. There is little doubt that Cherbourg will be selected. Large quantities of timber and granite are arriving at the navy yards there, leading to the beliet that additional works will be immediately proceeded with. The weather has at length taken so favorable a turn as to allay the apprehensions beginuiug to be felt for the next harvest.

The Times' Paris correspondent states that Jthc Spanish Government had applied to France to re move Gen. Narvaez from Ids present residence near Bayonne, to the interior of France, or to a still greater distance from the frontier. The government is apprehensive of some sudden movement on the part of Nfcracz, an event not unlikely In his present state of imtatiou against the Queon and the party in power.
