The proclamation of Oen< ral Butler and the ar rest of the municipal givemment, including tho Mayor, form the leading point* in the news from that locality. Oar telegraphic report of the Rnropeen news by tbe Jura, at Father Point, reports the rumor of an approaching intervention by France and England in the war aflhirs of tbe Unit-d States. A Paris letter in the Indeyendancr. Mgt asserts it as a eoiirmed fact, and says thst the movement is to Mads on the basis that the South guarantees negro emancipation.

It was said in Paris that Napoleon entertained the idea of sending Marshal Nell to Borne as his representative, endowed with mili tary and diplomatic power, and instructed to harmonize, if possible, the safety of the Holy See with the rights of the people of Italy. The new Portuguese Ministry propose to modify the tariff in fawr of importers of salt, fish and sugar. The young King l^d announced his approaching mar riage. The International Exhibition in London wu opened with great success on the 1st of May. A letter, signed a "County Wexford Parmer," published in Sauntlem' News Letter, of Dublin, de scribes the prospects of the agriculturist* and la borers in that part of Ireland as very wretched. He says:?"It is an undeniable fact that the labor ing population are suffering greater privations than 1 huv.> v ;tue*svd fur.tweuty years.

General Butler's Hew Or lea a* Proclama tion?The Financial and bnlaa tlona In the South?Impending; Collapse of (be Rebel Treasury. General Butler's proclamation to the people of New Orleans, which is before ov readers, is the most comprehensive in its scope, the most precise in its details, the moot emphatic in its requisitions, and the most generous in its concessions, of all the documents of the kind which have emanated from our victorious military leaders. After informing the people ooacerned that he comes among tbein 44 to restore order, maintain public tranquillity, and enforce-peace and quiet under the laws and constitution of the United States," General Butler announces tie city under martial law, and specifies his term?, to which tho submission of the people will be required; and for this submission to the authority of the "old flaj" he offers them the full equivalent of the pro tection of their persons, their business pursuits and tleir property of all descriptions. But he will have no trifling, no nonsense, no insolent displays of rebel sympathies or emblems? n >th ng but the flag and the supreme authority of the United States. But, while thus pointed and positive In his requirements upon the citizens of the great city recovered by force of arras from the dead ly gripe of this wicked rebellion, General But ler is equally emphatic in his measures of pro tection. He ia not only just, but, libs a true soldier of the Union, he is humane and mag nanimous. Under the laws of the United'States snch rebel shinptostera as " Confederate States T?easury notes" are good for nothing except as evidences of treason. So far as mere jn-doe iB concerned, Geaeral Butler might cause every individual within bis reach to be arrested* and punished if detectal in offering or Teceivimras inoney sa'd rebel Treasury notes. But beany" that H has been represented to him " by the oivil authorities that these Confederate notes, in the form of bank note*, in a great i.if .v .tttre are the only substitutes for money whi- h Srepeople have been allowed to have-, aud tlkrt groat distress would follow among- the poorer c-ttwes if tho circul ~?ion of such notes shotriii b?- at <mee) suppre*?ed and thsrefore, until otherwise ordered, ke- will permit the circirl? tit.aof said notes azuuag the people of New (hteanst It'is to be hoped that these pewple, accordr ingty^ availing themselves of this gene-ous coo ceaiiea. will get taeir Confederate Treasury trasfci-oflT their hands-, for what it will fetch, as fast as possible; for. within the nest sixty, forty or tJventy days, sue'* trash will probably Dot coresitiwd five cent> on tho dollcc in any huh or cornor of the Sotife Tho people of Rfau mord, taking time by the forelock, are, it ajv )>earftr exchanging as fast as they aan their ( -n federate paper for Riehmend city money, in iie abscise of anything better; and this is the ?w* giitaiQg of a "ConfoATate'' financial revuls.uu. which, perhaps, before the end e?en of tbe pre sent-month of May, may bring the rebe' "rea tury.pa^er to a sweeping South Sea bi.jfele explosion all oves?tbe South. After our oec* paiian of such Southern linancial and cot jaer cial. wntres as iJashville, New Orleans- and Neflo4k, our occupation of the "Confederate capital" of Richmond will, financially, be apt ttvaettle the whele question, ic-the general re pudiation throughout the Scath of their Con fadwtte Treasury paper. Surely, with the rebel government put to flight, its promises to pay will follow It. and spaedily bui/it in a freat heap of- its exploded swindling shin asters. Thus, within forty or twenty days- from our occupation cf Richmond, klie deluded people of our rebellious 8tatee> in addiion to all their otbec losses, privations, sufferings and m'sfortuttea from this rebellion* will pro bably fiud then selves visited wkh the dead lo-ss of perhaps not less ttun two hua- j dred millions of dollars in Confederate Treasury notes,, and with nothing to vouch for this payor but the ghost of a spurious gorernmsnt de stroyed, or a conspiracy of Jeremy Diddlers flying for their lives as fugitives from justice. We ennnot avoid the conclusion that this Impending rebel financial revulsion in the South will thoroughly curs our suffering South era people of their devotion to Jeff. Duvis and his confederates. To save themselves, the people involved in these toils of their rebel .government have been struggling desperately to maintain it. But this financial explosion ii upon them, and we dare say that soon after the lo?s of Richmond will come the grand oollapse of the rebel treasury, and the spurious substi tutes for money by which the armies of Davis have thus far been raised, equipped and sus tained. Our reocoupation of Southern States and cities has not ee yet been marked by any very enthusiastic Southern popular manifesta tions in behalf of the Union. But with Davie expelled, and with Johnston ranted from Rich mond and Be?uregnrd from Corintj, all Honth* era doubts as to the permanency of our sno cesw s will be at an snd, and then we shall see a Southern reaction for the " old flag" as gene ral and pervading as tbe decline and repudia tion of confederate paper money. When our troops enter*! Jacksonville, Florida, they were bailed ae deliverers by the peo ple of the town; but when the place was loft again to the mercy of a rebel soldiery those Union citizens w?re compelled to fly, or suffer tbe most cruel punishments, f^et the Southern people elsewhere be made to feel abeolutely secure against any possibility of ? return of their rebel soldiers, end we shell ?oon realize the existence of a powerful Uoioa party, from Richmond to New Orleans. Meantime, the proclamation of President Lia coln, reopening to trade, under certain limita tions, the ports of Beaufort, N. C.; Port Royal, 8. C., and New Orlenns, mark* but the begin- l ning of thoM* approfccldng measures of relief for j the South which cannot fail to awaken, among the people of that bection, a general tense of disgust fur the horrible imposture of their Southern confederacy, contrasted with the sub stantial gloried, securities and blc&aings of the Union. Foreign Intervention Again ox thw Tato.? The Paris correspondent of the Independence Beige states that a secret treaty has been en tered into between France and England to put a stop to the civM war in America. One of the conditions is that the South shall consent to tbo emancipation of iP? slave population. IIo ad that another treaty hss been eonclu led between France and Spain, by which the latter govern ment undertakes to abolish slavery in Cuba. The l i ltmn'lnnce ? a journal that is geae rallv well informed in regard to the secret political movements of the European courts, and we sha'l not, therefore, take upon our selves to assert that there is no founda tion for these statements. Whatever, how ever. may be the schemes agitated between England and France i* reference to this country, the campaign has now arrived at a stage which leaves no pretext for foreign interference. With all the ports of the South in our possession, or so invested that their capture is only a question of a few wireks, no legal loophole is le't to> justify such a proceeding. Supposing the idea to have been seriously entertained, the news of the capture of New Orleans aad of the evacua. tion of Yorktown and Norfolk will, we ima gine, cant a damper upon tt. The liberation of our nary from its present blockading duties will not only ler?<ve it free to pay its compli ments to rtny foreign force that may visit us with a hostile intent, but also to threaten the North Amorican and West Indian possessions of England. Wc hardly think that the latter Power will, from a mere spirit of hostility to our institutions, venture to inc^tr such vfaks. As to France, after the affair of 3lexico, it is of course diiltcult to speculate on its course.- It would be curious if the statement that it was intended it> require- of tho South to emancipate its staves should turn out to be correct After making var for tie perpetuation of slavery, this would be a hard dose for it t?- swallow as a conditio* of peace.

It appears that, in t' e c??e c? persons desirous to join the churcijes of Heury Ward BeeoheT and Dr. Choever, seve.nl of the clergy in Now York and Brooklyn refuse to issue such certificates, on th*groucd that such men are not .rue Christians, that they cm fanatical semi-infidels of the Salar.io school, r? pudiatin^Jthe authority of the Bible, and tfcni by their seditious course they Lave brought terrible calamity oa>tbe country. This L?> a very healthy senttevnt?it is the common .vment of* a great revelation at the North. The presant resentment is as nothing compared to wha:,-will be developed hereafter. We arc now engaeed in putting down the rebel t at the Sewtb. When that is accont plished?and noting delays it L?t the Satanic attitude of the a.aaliHonists?then we will put down tie abolitius rebels of tho-North, so t Jat the ca.?e of all rtrtnre rebellion shall be extfn guislit d.

The presentation was made through Mayor Gpdyke, and the reception of the (lag was acknowledged by resolutions of thanks from the Boards of Aldermen and Cooocilmen. Last evening another incident of the same cha racter occurred. We received from Colonel (now General) Logan an elegant flag taken at Fort Donelson from an Irish regiment which had been seduced into the rebel service, and i> now imprisoned at Chicago, under the superin tendence of Colonel Mulligan, of Lexington fame. This flag Colonel Logan desired that we should present to the Sixty-ninth regiment of this eity, and the ceremony, which is fully re ported In our columns, took place at the armory of that regiment, Essex Market Hal), last even ing. For a description of the flog, a narrative, from onr own correspondent of the circum stances attending Its capture, and a sketch of the speeches last evening, we refer our readers to our report; but we desire to express here our gratification at being connected with so interesting and patriotio an occasion as that which signalized the transfer of this Irish flag to the keeping of loyal Irishmen, and onr thanks to the gentlemen concerned in the alTkir for the admirable manner in which all the ceremonies were conducted.

Mr. Crittenden toe* the shair and Mr. Cox resumed his place as secretary. Mr. Richardson, of TlUnoie, said he thought the Meet ing lant Saturday bad resulted in good. It had 00m petled the radicals of the r?uee to lower their tone uad modify thei.-tmisclilevous 'Vfisiattoe. We did not need any more action with reference to that measure; nor ?hd he tbiuk ws- needed any resolutions expreesivo of our general objscta now. It would be well to meet again whenever the obnoxious legislation was again thrn?t into Congress with a view So similar action. Mr. Kellt^ft, of Illinois, concurred In tbts Tiosr. The action of tne last raeetlng was salutary. It bad stoppo4 the pernicious legislation. U Mode the radicate change tone and moderate their ex tremism, lis thought whenever the HAine attempt was the meeting should be agate summoned. Mr. Blddle* of Pennsy Ivanis, exprecsed his regret that absence froaa the city previnted his atteudauce at the last meeting. He coucurred in Us notiist. A motion was then made thu* Ibo Chtirman again call us togethe- whenever In his ej>l?lon there arose the ne cessity of defeating mischievous legislation like that at" tern; ted by the Lovrjoy confederates. The Clmirwan (Mr. Crittenden) sugge?ted that It would bo better to have this duty of calling a m "Ui,g devolved on a commitee. He said he could not always tell what ?as b. ing dono, but a few active m"ir?iiers, like the Secretary (Mr. Cox) ouuld perioim this duty with mope satisfaction. Mr. C>x rem tried that It was a mistake to tbtok the obligations of the conservative men lied ceased. Their duty wi* to be done as oft'-na? tho ab ?iltiouism of the House showed its head. It ww t>ot dead yet. It would only boowre eager to rocover Its loot grouud. At any time,by an arrangement of the basinets with theHp>?Wer and some republican members, whom he would not name, some s*eepmg ple<#or legislatl >n Involving dis aster to the nation would be pushed In and hurried through before a meeting of the conservative wen could be called. He would, theret re. suggest thit the com rnlttee consist of Are, and not three, as s.igfivste 1, and that their towers be s<> enlarged th?t they act at onoe in the House and concert measures to oppose and break down bad legislation. T: ey hiiould tfoe to it that conservative members were h->re, that unity of faction waa bad. and that thus *1 may do on an emergency what the conservative members den ire. Mr Steele, of New ler ey.m ved that the. committee con* at of five, and that th-y have power V> call meet ings and to manaee the opt<* Ulon In I'.ie Hous>. Mr Msllory, of Kentnrky. a proved of Mr. Cox's Sug gestions It was Indispensable to success that the com m.t'ee should manage the matter at once 00 any emcr gency and before the meeting should be ceJled. Mr. Richardson expressed his assent. The nioiion was put and t arriel. Tbe Chalruian appointed M-rsrs. Richard**. Kel'ogg, ntitdla Mailory at.d Cox th* eommittoe. Afterwa dn Messrs!

The suppression of the obnoxious portions of the Ar ?old I>orejoy bill, to make freedom national and slavery Motional, is regarded here as aa mdleatkm that the radlea's have bogun to fear the ?' good time onmhig ? when their strength will be trteo and they will b? found wanting Tosy arc already chary of their conMetiee. They don't know who are and who are net their frier Is. They tetal the whole republican psrty that Is not committed to them as probable opponents, nnd they are beginning to cultivate strength. The voice of the peop e hi not unheard. The abolitionists, per *, have ho* d it nnd trembled.
