AFFAIRS IN EUROPE,

The h'ean* ? Morirrn Au- | thv tMp. Judv-mm Dei' TVlhi has fallen! If it be a triumph to record tho slaughter oflnany of oar ! brave soldiers and of tho mutineer*, we have l>een triumphant. Our Indian war, we must admit, is | one of sell-defence, and it is said that a war is just | with those to whom it in necessary. This change ! for the letter in our EMtern belligerent state has brightened up society (save those who have rela- j tions at the Heat of war), and even in the metropolis I the atmosphere is to-day clearer, and the sun is posi tively struggling forth at the West end, for it has long since cut the city. There the news from your side has. to say the least of It, kept tho markets dull and thrown business generally into a state of stagnation. The bruins of the Stock Exchange and their outside friends, owing to the comparative small shipment of specie, have not realized the rain of of Danaide. The bnlls have been and arc in a state of inaction, neither losers nor gainers. Mulders, suicides, robberies, from street taking pocket* as they come and on the highway, burgla ries, swindling* (principally amongst people in the respectable walks of society), fraudulent bank ruptcies, seductions and rape will be found, on a gleaning of the papers by the present mail, not to be on the decrease. The rule appears to he the excep tion. and speaks volumes for the state of Englitth so ciety. The Waterloo bridge mystery remains still some thing secret and hidden. Protestor Taylor has examined the remains ami clothes, and indeed all that stands - i evidence, and the verdict of the jury is the u>" ctuni in such cases, ' murdered by some person >r persons unknown." The past and jwwsing heavy gales on the coast have caiwd and arc causing disasters dire to the shipping aud the loss of manv lives. As a preven tive is supposed to be more efficacious than a cure, lot oa hope for satisfactory results from the new pa tented invention "for preventing ships from going on rocfc?." Again, great loss of live? and property has occurred in the counties of Essex, Kent and Surrey, by the great floods. The Arabia yesterday brought us back Mr. Arce deckne, the worthy Commodore of the Harwich and Vice Commodore of the London Yacht Clubs. Iji-st evening Mr. Airedeckne took the chair at the monthly meeting of the London Club, where he was warmly greeted, and this morning he started off for Harwich, where he has been solicited to represent that ancient borough in Parliament, owing to the death of Mr. Warburtou (brother of the late E. Warburton) by suicide. The (Jueeu has intimated to Mr. and Mrs. Charles Keeno that she will not this season entertain her tlieatrical friends at Windsor, owing, no doubt, to the distressing accounts fr?m Bengal. There are rumors of a row in the literary world b^re, in reference to the works of a Mr. Charles Re.ide, published by Messieurs Bcntley. Mr. Reade, thouph not an original writer, has, it appears, adopted "the origiual" plan of "novelling" French dramas, piny* and vaudevilles. Thus his "Never too La?e to Meiid" is a free translation of the "Claudia" of George Sand, and "Les Chercheursd'or de la Cali fornie." "White Lies," now publishing in the London Journal, word for word, "lie Chateau de Grandier," "Clouds and Sunshine," (in "The Course of True Love Kerar did Hun Smooth,") line for line from Madame Emtlc de Cirardin's last chef d'cntvrt "La Joie fait peur," aud so on. 80 you see the French copyright law is no protection to French authors. Oar Pw1i Cormpondencr Pakis, Oct. 29, 1857. Reaction of the American Cruit ? The Principalities tfu cutum Rc-atcendancy of Engh*h Influence in Turkey Sarenrt* of the French Gorn-nment on the ? Subject ? \ev Churches for Foreign Rexidmt* ? The Theatre* , dr.. fyc. The continuation of the American crisis fling* a ahadow over everything here. The knowledge that even the high rate of discount to which the Bank of England ban reached lias not prevented upwards of XfiOO.OOO in gold from bring despatched to New York, half of which was sent at all events within the last two weeks, in the very teeth of the riac, serves to increase the depression of all the commer cial ciaMO. In addition to this, it in known that the demand for silver in India is greatly adding to the complication!* of the money market. A certain depression of a political character pre vail* also regarding these interminable Principalities, which many l>egin aeriooaly to fear will ultimately pros e the proximate cause of a disturbance of the exiting amicable relations between Prance and England. The aorene.* of the government journals on thia question is, I aasure you, but a faint echo of what ia said in those political circles from which public opinion in such matters takes its ri-e. It haa so long been a favorite idea of these that a Rowmaoi kingdom ahould be established where French in fluence might prove as potent an that of Russia at Athena, that now. when the SulUn has fairly net his heel ujwn it. and thrown the weight of his influence directly against the long and intricate skein of Pram t? Russian diplomacy in the matter, there is a dispo*i on to olfeuco in France, which, at the pre aeut moment . is not by any means lessened by the English difficulties 111 India, even though the fall of Delhi haa just occurred. Karl Cow ley, the Hritiah Ambaaaador, is somewliat osten tatiously aaked to spend a fortnight at Com piegn e. while the hospitality extended to the Rus sian Envoy is limited to one week, but notiody is miaied by any by play of this kind. It is very well known that MWwivt soreness respecting th Noldo Waltodilan question does prevail in the imperial conneil-, that Ix>rd Cowley hi been perfectly mad" t<> und( rstand a- much, and that the brightening of Lord Palnier?ton'a Indian prosj* < t* has much to do with the Cruiui?s of tin EiigUeh Cabinet on the qu?*tion. He~ liid l'aeha's n tnrn to power, under the auspi ce* at l/ird Stratford de R-dclifle, ia gall and worm- : wood to the i'mw Kiaston party. in which eateii'iry may, tn truth, la- comprised the majority of the na tion. The Crinv-a. it m said, still futn'-s with the j bl<?sl r,f French aoldier*. The armies of France I and her fleets have only just quitted the Ea-t, after 1 supporting a heroic conflict. Fram e ha* disbursed a satn equivalent to ?9$JSMJMQ sterling, and sacri ficed tOtjMN) men ? a *scrtti< e tluit deserved tnore re gard than is at iirewent exhibited hv the Ottoman empire. If Tuikey. it ia said, ?houl?j compromise *o thoughtlessly the r*?nlt* of this war. it must be known that France will not allow them to be for feited . The Pa if, whose imperial inspiration is undenia ble, has the following reflection*:? "Only a few months ago Reachid fell fnsn power rather than concede to tlx majority of the European Power* the annulov nt of the illegal elections which had tak n place ill Moldavia; and; as the natural con sequence of that event th" principal support of Rei? hid. Ix>rd Stratford de RedclifJe was com ft :ied to sacrifice his personal idea* to the clearly exprew?ed policy of his government. It haa fro- | qnently br< n said, and it is a fatality which weights | on the public life of RearMi Pacha. that that *tat<-e man < aimot e*iat without Lord Redcliffr: on the other band, the F.nirlish ambasaador cnimot retain Ms predotniaant influence unless when Keschid is minister. Th* Porte ha? long struggled against this two fold influence which has been more injurious to it than mp *. i| )*. imagined. History is to judge wheth' r Turkey has w? || und* rstood her part and her de-'iny and will declare whether the government , of the Piute has w< II appreciated the extent of its obligations towards the Western powers, and par ticularly towirds France the oldest, and. it may la Maid. without wounding the susceptibilities of any one. thi' most, disinterested of its allies. If i^t ?ry is to atate thai in fhree yetr* which hate followed the oaoelusion of the treaty of Paris, the Porte has up reared more occupied in turning to account its Isnellt* than in accepting it* prescriptions. and that the remembram e of the services which il has re- < reived ha? generally appeared rather to emhorass than to guide It in Its line of conduct. We do not see that, io reality, the Porte has gained anything by allowing itself to lie thua led away into a p?th where more than one man is prepared for it. Public opinion has by degrees deserted it, and even ft?l* adoltM at having ever f?*lt so much interest in Its fate. The last episode which has jost crowned the long aeries of intrigues will not restore toTnrkeywhat she ha* loet in the sympathies of the civilized world. TT?e laM oiiention which remain* to b<' s?'ttl< d, ac cording to the solutions indicated In the treaty of Pans (hat of the Princinalitlea? will shortly b*? liroaght forward before the Congress. Tlie new com Mnatem adopted by tie Porte appear* to Indxate an intention of a struggle. Happily, the European go vernments do not allow themselves to lie guided either by the [taaaions or the excitements of the mo owert snd whatever may he the sense of what baa just taken p!a< e at Constantinople, it i* eertain that tbe Western Powera will not for an Instant depart from that spirit of jastice and moderation which hai always animated them." One reason for my quoting the above rather long extract from the ray*, is that circumstances made me perjtonally acquainted with the manner of its composition. Mr. Walewski, on hearing of Reschid's return to power, Bent for the editor of the Pay* and desired him to write a leader on the apirit of the above; after it waa written, the proof sheets were Bent to him and the last word*, beginning from the word ."Happily, the European Powers," etc., etc., were sddea by the Minister himself, as if he consi dered that the editor might have gone a little too near the wind as regarded English susceptibility. Foreigners are gradually taking up their abode here for the winter. Apartments aro everywhere letting on a scale of price# perfectly unprecedented, and there is no doubt that the great improvements effected in the capital are gradually producing an effect on the upper classes of the C ontinent, which is now beginuing to bear fruit. There is always a class of nobility in all countries, to whom the luxu ries of Paris are like the promised land. Spaniards, Portuguese, Viennese, Russians, nobles from Berlin, from Rome and Naples, regard it as the Mecca Of idolatry, to lie periodically visited as a canon of their faith. The rapidly increasing facilities for reaching It, the wondrous tastes of the improvements made, the splendor of the imperial court, the* extra ordinary political influence obtained by the reigning monarch since his asceuding the throne of the Ca pets, and the natural dia|>ot;ition of all to bow down tiefore the personification of success, will, it may be presumed, more and more, until a catastrophe occur, lend to increase the number of luxurious money spenders, and so keep up the present enormous prices. I'ertain it is, however, tliat there ia no previous re cord of similar prices being giveu for furnished apartment* for the season. ? Prince Napoleon Jerome Bonaparte, commonly called the sou of the American Bonaparte, who is now captain in the Chasseurs d'Afriqne, has left | Marwilta by the Sinai, for Algeria. A uew church ia about to be constructed for the Russian embassy and the Russians rending in Paris, in the Rue de la Croix, in the Faubourg St. Flonora. The expense is estimated at 1,000, 000 francs, towards which the Einperor of Russia has suliscribed 200,000 franca, the Dowager Empress lOO.OOOf, the Holy Synod 200,000f. Tho balance will be made up by private subscriptions. Speaking of churches, tho difficulty which has so long prevailed altout the English Embassy church is just now culminating to a point which will decide its "to be or not to bo." The English government, rather than the building should fall into the hands of the Americans, who were ready to purchase it, gave ?9,000 for it. The House of Commons, how ever. which holds the purse, refused to ratify the purchase. Consequently the chapel has been closed, | and is now advertised for sale in Ualignani. Under neath the advert isemeiit figures another, calling a meeting at Meurice'sto decide whether the British re sidents are disfto*ed to purchase it. rather than incur the chance or its passing into some unorthodox hands. A general belief prevails that, seeing the government, in their eagerness to rescue it from the sacrilegious hands of the Americans, have given at least $2,000 too much for it, the English residents will have nothing to do with it. As a speculation, the chapel does not stand in the same category as before, for the Americans have now built themselves a beautiful place of worship in the Rue de Berri, and should the Episcopal service be performed in it, it will of courae draw off many who formerly used to go to the chapel in the line de Aguerian. Apropos of the American chapel ? is this the time for any American congregation to incur an expense of ?10.000 for a place of worship on this side tne Atlan tic? is there a probability, under existing circum stances, of there heing in Paris a sufficient WHMikl |0 fill if * raw already prevails that this chapel, even before it is finished, will bo brought to the hammer. To turn from chapels to theatres. The Cirque has liecome famous bv a piece called " l'Amiral do l'Es eadre Bleue."' The fate of the English Admiral Byng, in 175(5, is well known. Sent with an insnflfi ! cient force to relieve the island of Minorca, when the French had poured in an overwhelming force, a coun cil of war was held by the officers of his squadron, and unanimously declared that to afford relief was, uudci thci ?ircum*tape?*. impracticable. Byng. how ever, made the attempt and was unsuccessful. This failure raised an immense clamor in England, !>oth against Admiral Byng and the ministry, and tho lat ter, to save themselves from public indignation, base ly sacrificed their Admiral. The factious clamor of his enemies, warmly seconded by the efforts of an incendiary press, succeeded in obtaining his condem nation to be shot, and he was accordingly executed at Port-mouth in sight of the fleet, meeting hU | death with manly fortitude and protesting to his j last breath against the injustice of his sentence, i Well, all this has l**en dr.imatised after >( French fashion at the Cirque, t?nd attracts overflowing houses every night. Poor Byng is made a lover and an un fortunate one. his rival being a certain Frenchman, called Captain de Frontenac. who, of course, carries off the lady's affections. Then we have a duel, in which, though the Admiral proves victori ous, he peneriwisly sfiares his rival to become the hut-bund of his love ; notwithstanding which, however, the unlucky Admiral becomes the victim of various treacheries, which at leugth end in bringing about the catastrophe. The part of the bluff aristocratic English Admiral is played to the life, but the other incidents of the drama? all English ?s they are ? arc as usual most ludicrously burlesqued hy the French, who. for snirht they know of English habits, might as well have been living on the shores of the Yellow Ses. Catherine II aye" has gone to Pau where jhe pro Bises to j(a*s the winter in complete retirement. M. eyerbeer has left Pari* and does not return to it till next summer, when he proposes to superintend the rehearsals of his " Afncaine" at the Grand Opera. Arnal. after five months ab>oncc. has re sumed his po*t at tho Palais Rnyal. The Italian tra gedian Salvini, who has mined such laurels in Paris, is now gone to Milan. MorelH. the l?rritone who has recently returned from the United States, is now singing with great mcoM at Rome. M'meNaptal Arnoult ha? cancelled her engagement with the Di rector of the tlaite, paying a forfeit of 12.000 francs, having accepted a lucrative offer at St. Petersburg. Mine. Bosio and Mr. Tamberllk have been already received in that capital at the Opera Hon** with the most flattering maiks of favor by the royal family. All the American families, almost without excep tion, who had taken exjiensive apartment* for 'be winter, have thrown them up.

The symptoms I alluded to in a previous report as an i nonncing this melancholy catastrophe. hare acquired : fresh intensity from bis last illness. and *eem to i preclude any pronfiect of hi* being able to resume i the exert l*? of hi* regal function*. In the most fa vorable view of the c? ?*>. a long interval of quiet and j ivixwe will be required to restore bis intellectual | faculties to their equilibrium. Under these circumstance* it becomes imperative ly necessary to take mime decided step* in the Regen cy question. At present all public business is at a *taii<l.and everything i* at sixes and sevens; for Pnuvia, though nominally a constitutional monar by. i* -till to impregnated with the tradition* of ab*<> ' lutism that nothing can be done without the person al interference of ihe sovereign. It happens that this country ha* never Iwn similarly situated be fore; long, a* the Kingdom of Prussia exists, none of its rulers have been in the predicament to which the present monarch is reduced, and there has never even been a minority. so that no precedent w to lie found In its annals which oooM lie acted on in this MMNt Ml. From bis position a* ht'ir apparent, how ever the Prince of Prussia would undoubtedly have the first claim to the Kearney , and mini?ter* here pro pose to convoke an extra session of the legislature, to lny the state of thing* liefore them, and to obtain Ike consent and cooperation of the representative! (if the nation to the appointment of hi* Riyal High ne*? to that office. Tnis would certainly Is- in stric M? ordance with the forms of constitutional govern tnent; it is what was done in England in the reign of Oeorge III. and recently again In Hwcden , where the States general have approved uf Ifcc nomination of the i rown prince to l>e Regent ?luring the illne?s of his fatber. It is understood, however, that the Prince of Prussia demur-' to this pro|M>*ai: he looks upon the consent of thet'hambers as su|iererogat<iry. and think* it preferable to he appointed Regent pure ly and "imply by the King's siirn manual. If he ac cepts the government, be say*, it must be from the hands of brother himself." Now it I* easily seen tliat *ii> !i a course would be open to grave objec tion* If 1he King s mental faculties are sufficiently unimpaired f<* him to select a Regent, there is no reason why he should not continue to govern in pmprta prtitma; or if the choice depends entirely upon him, he may just as well ap|ioint the Queen , or Prin< e Chariee, or any otbci member of his family, and pass over the Priu'.e of Prussia altogether. On the other hand, if the Chamber* are summoned then cannot be the le*?t i doubt but that he would be saluted Regent by accla mation, and it i a no wonder, therefore, that nia un- ; willingness to resort to their cooperation should be attributed to a dislike of anything savoring of repre- : sentative forms of government, and should revive rumors prejudicial to him that had long been forgot ten. It is undoubted that he has never taken the oath on tho constitution , and that hints were thrown out at the time that he declined doing so in order to be at liberty to alter such points as were not accord ing to his taste, in case of his accession to the throne. For my part, I must say that I consider such suspicions to be entirely without founda tion. I attach little importance, indoed, to the viUtitit of liberalism wnich he has displayed rather ostentatiously for the last few years, and in which he only follows the traditional policy of heirs apparent from time immemorial; but it is notorious that the events of 1848 made a deep impression upon him, and I cannot imagine that he would venture upon a line of conduct which, sooner or later, might lead to their recurrence. Besides this, his most confidential advisers are men closely connected with the liberal conservative party, and it is to be presumed that they will exert all their in fluence to deter him from stens that would excito universal disappointment auu reprobation. His strange behavior is perhaps merely owing to the principle of military subordination that has been in stilled into, him from infancy. He considers the King as a sort of generalissimo, and the nation as an army, the command of which he is not allowed to take wlthont special orders from his superior. There is a report in circulation that previous to the King's illness his Majesty had signed a document delegating his authority to tne Prince in case of any thing happening to him, and that this paper had been entrusted to the safe keeping of the Queen. The well known character of the King makes such an act highly improbable, as he Is the last person in the world to resign his power as long as he is able to retain it; but I am by no means sure whether a document of this kind will not be eventu ally produced, in order to put an end to a state of things that is beginning to create general uneasi ness. The royal family are still assembled at Pots dam, in anxious expectation of the denouement of this singular decree. A constant exchange of tele graphic RMUN is kept up with the Emperor of llussia and the Empress dowager, who is stated to be profoundly afifected by her brother's malady. The Prince of Prussia, by the way, is doubly con nected with the imperial family or Russia ? his wife being a cousin of tne late Czar Nicholas; notwith standing which relationship she is represented aa being much more favorable to English than to Rus sian policy. Townrds the end of last week the money market assumed a more encouraging asjicct; secuni ties of all descriptions were looking up, and hopes were entertained that wo had seen the worst of the crisis. On Monday, however, a change came o'er the spirit of the dream. The disastrous ac counts from America, showing that the pressure there, instead of subsiding, had l>ecome still more in tense, and the intelligence that the Bank of England had raised the rate of discount to 8 per cent spread terror and consternation among the speculatorf. and the slight improvement that had taken plar. previous to the receipt of these unwelcome tiding was suc ceeded by a heavy fall. It is feared that the Bank of Prussia will have to follow the example of its English and French colleague-, and that the "wild cat " ba"l:.? which have sprung up htely will have to suspend their payments altogether. Aa yet. no ex tensive failures have been heard 01 here, and in thil respect our Bourne is generally distinguished from that of Vienna, where some ol the brs? houses have gone b? the board; but it i.? impossible to toll what catastrophes may ensue it the monetary perturb* ions continue much longer. After the remarkable summer we have had. we are now experiencing a still more extraordinary autumn. By this time the cold weather has generally set in. and there is either a sharp frost, or a Scotch mist that drenches people to the skin and makes them glad to keep in doors. Tlii? year, on the contrary, the weather is like spring; yesterday the tbermome I ter showed 64 degrees in the shnde, and the public [ promanades arc crowded with the heau mondr equipped in their summer costumes, und biwking in a sun of June-like splendor. The chestnuts are in full leaf for the second time this season, and in some places the apple trees are covered with fresh blos soms. In America, where you are accustomed to Indian summer, such phenomena might not excite any particular attention, but here they are quite unprecedented. The "oldest inhabitant cannot re collect anything to equal them, and if the comrt bad not pattied oft' so innocuously we should certainly U keve that the end of the world was at hand.

In the manner pre scribed by law In reference to the admtnmtratHm of affair* entrusted to me by his Maie?ty and .wepted by me.

I nxpeet the army, the etvlo functionaries, and all his Majesty's subjects to abow ma due oliedience, and I call especially upon the Ministers of Slate to retain the ftilne-s of their responsibility. ( \fler mentioning that public business is lo be carried on in the various licpwtoteoU of government in the ?ame mabui r as heretofore. the Pnn<" proceeds]:? I pray to (<od thai under hia bieuslng. he will grant m? strength to conduct the administration to the satisfaction of M i Je?ty the King aud the welfare of the country, and that the restoration of my royal muster to he.ilth may ?>ort re lie VI Be of a task which I only undertake In ' mph.inea wiUi the royal command and m fulfilment of my duty to the fatherland. In tlie forenoon of yesterday the Prince came over from Sant-Houci by in extra train, and received Biiron Monteuflel and the wholn ministry at his na lace, thus entering formally upon th?* exercise of his functions aa temporary head of the government. It will N- ?>eii at a glance, however, that his position is very difficult to what it w<sild have been if he had actually lieen proclaimed Regent. He Is only en trusted with tlie iidiiniiistration of affairs for a very limits d period. which may even be suddenly curtail ed if the King should be found able -or should mi agine himself able? to resume the functions of his office previous to the expiration of the time specified. It follows, of course, that the Prince of Prussia is precluded not only trom making any or ganic changes in the conduct of govern ment, bnt even from alterations in tho pertonnel. as he could not think of removing any individual connected with it while there Is a chance of the King's suddenly reap|>eariikg on the stage and it|>set ting all his ammgenients. Thus the KuNlfcl minis try have acquire id a renewed Inst of office; for al though tliere is in fart very little pmxpectof tho King's recovering within the next three months, there i? Ju?t as little doubt that If it should prove necessary to prolong the Prince's administration it will only lie for a similar term and under the same conditions. That Baron Manteuflel will make gisal use of the restiit? allowed him is patent to every one acquainted with his character, and I shall lie mnch surprised if lie doea not contrive in a short time to make him?e|f as indispensable to the new rhtf del' tint as he was to the former one. The "Prince's friends'' are in great consternation there ?t, and, Indeed, a more unlucky concatenation of events could not jx.xsihly have happened for them. Tho uiont influential of these gentlemen, M. IC>xl< >lph Auer?wald. wljo h.ol apparently well founded ex|?ec tations of the princeshin in the event of a change of rulers, has refrained hitherto, from motives of deli < ary from ?le w nil ! im<? l? .? |'ot-l -m, iod a mat. ter? bave turned out he will probably -day away alWether. Tne King's bodily health Is evidently improving, and it is stated that .1 -> >? >n as he is able to travel he will take a journey to Italy, which has been advised 1 1 y th?> physicians, in the h ?(,.? thai the mil I climate tided by perfect repoxe. may tend to accelerate his recovery. As to the restoration of his mental facul ties, the mint contradictory opinions are expressed oo this subject. Aicoitluig t j wuc agouut-i, tua disease is of neb a nature that perfect convalescence ! is out of the question ; he may restate for aome I time longer, but hia existence will be confined to the mere animal function*, those of the mind being radi cally and Irretrievably disordered. On the other hand, it is affirmed that his mind lias only expe rienced a temporary shock, which has shaken but not overthrown it, and that, as hia frame regains its former vigor, change of scene, careful uuraing, and the appliances of the medical art, will gradually effect the restoration of his intelectual powers. Con sidering the severity of the attack he ha* just got over, and that for several days together bin dissolu tion seemed to be hourly impending, it is obvious that his constitution must still be remarkably stronir. and the intimate connection between body and mind would lead one to infer that the rebound of the former from sickness to health, would not be with out a corresponding Influence on the latter. You will notice the emphasis laid by the Prince of Prussia on his "observing the constitution and laws of the country." The passage was probably intro duced in consequence or the remarks that had been passed on his having omitted to tako the oath on the constitutional charter of Prussia at the timo of its inauguration, and on his avoiding, as if pur posely, to enter the First Chamber where the oath is administered to the members preliminary to their taking their seats. Not that I imagine the Prussian charter was ever in any serious danger from him; in the original form, indeed, in which it waspromulgated, after the coup d'etat of November, 1848, and even after the settlement of January, 1860, it oontained democratic elements that must nave been as displeas ing to him an they were to his brother ; but since then it has been so carefully weeded of these unsa vory ingredients that it can ofl'er nothing unpalatable to the most conservative taste. The two Chambers have shown themselves such useful instruments in the hands of government that if they were not occa sionally rather obstreperous about money matters the King of Prussia would actually enjoy more power now than he ever did before the revolution, and it would be worse than a crime? it would be a fault ? for him to dismiss them. At the same time it must be admitted that, whatever their shortcomings, they are patterns of manly independence when compared to the legislative assemblies of France ; that they still afford the nation an organ for expressing its wishes and uttering its complaints ; and that if the position occupied by Prussia in Rnrope, though not so brilliant as it might have been had another course of policy been pursued sinee 1849, is even now higher than would be justified by her material re sources, it is chiefly owing to the fact that, though surrounded by despotisms, she still retains the forms of constitutional freedom.

The secret of this financial prosperity which Franco has enjoyed un der the present system of KOverumeiit, is, after all, of wonderfully simple character. The cause does not lie very deep. The tinperor has discovered that the State caiiict be poor bo long an the people are rich, and hia tlnui Cial policy lias been framed upon the consistent pria cip < oldevolopingtho national wealth, in tho full asau riui< (that the imperial treasury will be sure to participate in 1 1 r general prosperity. This Idea, simplo as it ap|>ears, la la ] beyond the a cope of routine statesmanship. The old rulenof France, the Bourbons, after the experience of gene rations of despotic sovereignty, never succeeded in com prehending this principle. Thoy sought to anrlch the sovereignty draining hlg subjects in modes which at the lime were vastly admired for their ingenuity, but which to us seem the vagaries of actual insanity. Kvcn L<ouis l'hilippe, though belonging to anothor era, drew too con spicuous a line of demarcation between the interests of the monarch and those of tho people whom he governed. The present Kmperor Is the first sovereign of Franco? at all ovents since tho days of Hnnrv IV.? who has really iden tified his own interests with those of the nation which ho rules. Their welfare Is hla; in their prosperity he finds the inexhaustible source of the revenues which, magnifl cent as may be their amount, are magnificently expended upon objects which gratify the national pride, aud in a very practical sense conduce to the national well being. Fashions for November. [From LeFollet.] Tho niako of dresses is an important question at the present moment. If things take their natural course basques seem destined to be quite laid aside ; they are now scarcely evor allowed in full dross, but arc sufficiently adopted in walking and home dress to insure their toler ance for one more season. This affords a good opportunity for thoee ladles to whom they are unbecoming to discon tinue them. Willi regard to trimmings, flounces are quite as much as ever in favor; they arc sometimes made double; and, when single, are trimmed with velvet, ruches, chicoreea, lace, or a flat plaiting of ribbon, or with the same mate rial as the dross. Trimmings at tho aide* of tho skirts are as much seen as flounces, but arc considered quite no gllge when simply composed of bands of velvet , or of a dar ker stripe of black and white checks; A half breadth of a nude than the drees, covered witli an open passementerie, with Orecques, arabesques, or with a trimming of velvet arianged like the letter V reversed, graduated in size from tho bottom of tho dress to tho waist, is much approvod of. This half breadth is generally edged by a rucho of narrow lace fringe, galon or moss Irimniiug. A croxsway band of black velvet, from six to eight Inches wide at the bottom, finishing in a point at the waist, cither edged with lace or not, has a very good effect. With this, on the body of the dress, should be bands of velvet to match, wide on the shoulder and diminishing to a point at the waist. Another very pretty trimming may be formod by three rows of velvet bows graduated in sise, or three rows of buttons, or macarons of velvet, surrounded by frillod narrow lace. The same trimming, with smaller buttons, &c. , is repeat ed on the body and on the plaits of tno sleeves, dome dresses are trimmed en tablier. hi Bome of tho rich silks and flew materials now ap |-?uiDg these trimmings are woven in; thus, on a ground of dark blue, green or dove color are quillos of black vel vet, which, wlien fringed at tho bottom, suit well for a double skirt. On lighter and bright colors, flounces of black lac.e are so wull imitated that they almost require to bo touched to be quite sure they are only a pattern on the dress. On others the pattern is en tabler, with bows also in the design. Others in shaded and black stripes, with laco arranged en echelle on the lower stripes. Fancy rejw, poplins andcotelines are al.io manufactured >in the same manner, representing a half breadth in stripes of various widths, mixed, or in a mixture of oo jors suitable to the ground of tho dress; sometimes only of two. the iwilteru being in the darker color. IJ^ht ma tuna's an- quite abandoned for the present, and are very often replaced by poplins, which, whether plain or m plaid, always make a useful and cheerf.il looking dress Black and white checked tafleits and poplins are moro seen than ever tor walking d. e*s also ror vi?iting drees, mi. I deud-U>i1e??e or ftir iiegli/re. The trimming must suit able for thtte i oi?e.i L biack velvet, a hall' breadth of ffi een, bin-* or \ ,oiet aud b'aok plaid enlivens them verr well Hlack or brown |sjpiius, very llnely spotted with bright colors, gurh a.-, ctrt.se, yellow or blue, have a cb*rni:nt; effect Flowered droguets, veloutiuex aud Kug I sh bareges, are also worn. Black silks of all kinds are more thin over in demand. It is said that black satin will dccidedly regain its former favnr. and, in company with velvet, will tagc its place for evening droas. As wo havo heforo noticed . the Algerien burnoua will be, for negligt . the clMk of the season; it replaces tho talma, of which, to say the truth, it is a modification , ouly it ia fuller at the bottom, and longer, and is invariably ac companied with a hood. Pome burnous are made without seams. some with scams en the shoulders, and others with a scam down the whole length of tho back, which slightly defines the figure, and disposes the fulness only where it is required. The IwxhI is aoinetimes made flst by means of a double seam round, forming a point in the middle, at the end of which is a long tassel of mohair, or Unas silk : the miter part of tho hood is cut up half way, and turned back in a reversed V trimmed with two tassels, to match that on the |*uut. Sometimes it is folded back twice, resembling a round berthe. Others are simply the old round hood drawn round with a ribbon or cord with Uneli. The material* principally i??l for the barnon* am tha chinchilla cloth, cachennre, English and Algerten cloth*, and itarW drab or brown ladles" cloth. Pome, which are very liAudsomc, are made of blaclc silk, wadded, and trimmed with one broad pi uting a la vieille, or with two half Ike width, or bound with velvet. There I* somo talk of making them of velvet, bordered, or even lmod with fnr; but this latter idea, we think, would reader them in conveniently heavy lite l?a?<|uine u aljo very much m vogue It w made longer than ever, and become* almost an open drem. When it is in allk thin i* \ery well, but in cloth It *hould ceriainiy be made shorter. Caaaque* are also made in liiui k tafleUs, lined aud trimmed cither with one wido pla ting, a la \ ieille, or with two rows narrower, placed apart : sometimes with a headed frill nearly eight inches liroad, or with two not beaded, either pinked or srallept-d. These are generally narrower than the other*. When made of cok)Md filk, and worn with dre?;c* trimmed eo tablicr, tlicy make a vory pretty in floor-! dress. Willi regard to mantles, the simple shawl shape. either Single or double, prevails up to the present. At this season -hawl* are alwayB worn.
