With all our greatness and all our wealth, if we iouxeu at Hume we tound among our popu ation a inass of poverty and of Ignorauce and or suffering or whicn a onris.Uu nation ought to be ashamed.

The Vienna Preate of November 14, referring to the denial given by the Paris papers to Its statement lliat negotiations are pending for the revision of the Treaty of Paris, says:? .

He had frouirht with biin two "immortelle" crowns, ?Jid aft-r laying one on the toub of Cavalgnae he went In quest of Hamlin's, but he could not hud It. so he returned to Caiaignuc s. which thus had the benefit of the two crowns. (Laughter.) 1 had not requested M. Qiieutm to go to the cemetery to ni.ue a speech In his capacity as editor of the Aetwtt. 1 had aske I huu to go there professionally and see what was going ou, in order to give a correct account of what might take place in the paper; I really don't see why I should he held responsible because a nunitier of young fellows asked M. ouentin to say a lew words over Haudiu's gtave.

The President then put questions to Gaillard, Sr. An extract of the examinat on is worth giving, as a specimen of the way In whicu they manage these things In France. President?Gaillard, have yon ever been con demned ? Answer?Never M. le President. President?un the 2d of November you went to the Cemetery of Montmartre v Answer?Yes; 1 went there with my son. President?Did you not wear a red cach'twz (com forter) ? Answer?M<tn o eu, I wore the same each n z that I am wearing now; I used II, us I am using it to-duy, in lieu of a cravat; 1 did not incau auvihmgby it. President?It has been noted that though the weather was not cold both you and your son wore comforters. However, I understand you to say that you had ?0 design in doing so. l)ad you any family nioilves tjyjy io tlyj e^li^ier^ Auatfer.?I have PieshlAiit?Did ydn riot go to the cemetery in con lequenco of the article In tue He ed? answer?I never saw the article; but, if I had it would have ^Lengthened my determination to go there; I go every year witn my sou to lav a crown ol immor Mien over the grave of Uodefrold t'avalguuc, whose chanet r 1 admire. Prcaident-cWell. when you had laid the crown on tho graye, wny did you not go? Toff-sat down and read a newspaper. Answer?? es, 1 read La CUtahe; 1 went as 1 told you just now to lay au offering of flowers on the grave ol? Cavalgnae; 1 waited because 1 knew some friends were coming for the same pur pose; 1 was seated and reading very quietiv when some people came up to me aud asked where rau dio's grave was; as I knew wbere It was 1 really knew no reason why I enou dn't tell them. To out the mailer short Halliard admitted that he went to Haadin's grave, aud seeing a lot oi people around It be asked his son to deliver some Hues over it.

Jr., said he only meant by these lines to express his oplniou of the riglnus which Haudiu died I ill opposing. M. tjuentln was asked why he made a speech over Ftaudln's grave. He explained that alter looking out i for it and not finding it he sod suddenly come upon i it. A number of young lellows came up to lilui to ask him to say a few words. The lollowlng neat little scene of fence then took placet President?What were the words you nttered? Answer?1 beg, A. le Presllent, to remark tiiut I am a defendant; you bring me here to answer for a speech 1 made; you must know what that speech was. President?It Is to be fonnd In the Gauloia. An swer?Is the Gaiilol* ihe prosecutor? President?No; but as itie words nave been printed and you did not contradict them, I presume you ad mit their correctness? Answer?I really have notu ing to do wttu that. I said nothing In anv way repre Uensible, but 1 really do not (eel called upon to stffci ply the prosecution with proofs. The prosecution has no substance; It Is founded on nothing. 1 ou prosecute me for having made a speech, aud you want me to tell you what that speech was. Lay It before me and then J will tell you if the report is correct. M. Peyroutoh was put through a long Interroga tory to Induce him fo admit that lie had made a speech In which the words "uiay Haudiu's d;e be au example to us on the day of the fight" occurred. Hut he refused to admit having aald anything oi the kind. M. Peyrat, the editor of the Avenlr National, was next Interrogated. 1 resident?Defendant Peyrat, you have Incurred condemnations before this? Answer?Yes; for press offences. President?Yon published In the Aivnfr of the 4th the letter written to you by M. Delescluze ? Answer? 1 did. President?Yon added some remarks of your own and fou opeuM asnbecripUon for Baudin? Answer? Quite ?*>.,_ president?That Is what yon are charged with. The prosecution views In those facts a previous con cert, a premeditated ui.dcrstand.ng. Auswcr?A few words of exp.auatlou may not be unneces-ary; on ?he ;id Inst., on arriving at the office. 1 learned tea. several friends contemplated erecting a mo iu niont to Haud.n. whose grave had been discovered ou the previous day in tho Mom uiai tro Cemetery. I thougnt the idea was a very good ouc; I thought It would produce au excellent euect, and that our li ends would be g od to subscribe; 1 t.uui diut ly open d a subscrlp.loii; ti.eie was no m..n<riivre about the thing at all; It was, you see, f.cnectiy epontane us. Presid ut?Well, but that very fact of making an appjal in the Atvuir National? Answer ? i here was tio appeal to nuke a manilcstation, as the sub script on came after tho id oi .November. President?Man it I see all 1 say Is koenty watched; 1 am sharply tnkon up at every instant; I am not prosecuting you; I aui merely telling you wnaivou are c >arg' l w ith, not giving you my owu opinions. I repeat, that the prosecution relies on those articles wnidi you contend arc meie.y meant to honor Haudiu's memory, aud whicu 1 call an ap peal. Mmllar questions were pnt to M. Chaltemcl La eour of the Keen* Owing to tlicabsen e of tils counsel. M. Jules Havre, M. Dure;, of the Tribune, elected to be tried by default. Several imdcemen deposed that tne speeches over Band n s grave were followed by cries of "I'ire la ttettnbiufue." Uneoi the poiic.-tneu created great Indignation In court by talk ng of the grave oi tue "Sieur hand in'' and the ".-dear Cavaiguao." An other cou>d not reinetnbcr what he hud heard, but pulled a paper out of his pocket to refresh his mem ory. M. Le Chevalier, a member of the Paris bar. de posed that Queiiim only made a speeru with the greatest reluctance and that ilallliard everted bi n sod so strenuous y to keep tue peop.e quiet tuui several ol them <h jUtcd l.ial h j was a .a ? u/t ir L Advocate General Aulois iheu ad Iressed the Court for the ptoseruimn. He laid it down It was u regu larly organi/.ed p.au to attack the very prl.ic.ple of the goverument under the pretence of doing honor to Hamlin s memory. He developed that tueme at enormous length. The couns i lor tha defendnn's then addressed the Court and were e.\cersive.y bitter. M. cremieux, who spoke tor M. Quciiiln. had no difficulty in snow Ihg up the absurdity of the pros ruilou ol' his e icut for a speeeu of which tin i'rocurcur Imperial couiu not produce either the text or the substance. 4. Km lanucl Arago did not pit-ad tor ms clients, but conuned hluisoll to carrying war into tlie enemy s camp?he diew a parallel lietween .M. ue Morny aud M. Iiuiidin, aud ca..eu ou tue Court to "shudder at the coutrast." The most idling speech -was that, or M. Gamlietta. He stated that li was very evident that the present government was founded on the hi of December, and asked why It did not celebrate as a JPt* day that of Its birth' He would tell itiem tue reason why. They were ashamed of it, and the friends of liberty kept the aunuersurv as thai of a day of mouruiug, lu the hope oi a brighter future. liie Couit then adjourned to deliberate, and brought in a judgment acquitting Qiicnuu un one coun . on the grouud that ihe speech he was pro sccuted r->r having delivered had not kmtwin down accurate y enough to have Its o.Teusive cha racter legady asceriained, and convicting him an I all the others, ou the ground that tne laets tliey are reproached with, "when they are considered in the aggregate and not arbitrarily sepa rated," constitute tue offence of "practis ing manmuvres;" th.it is to say. tha' the subscription pee * tn harmless and that tue inani lesUtion per se was equally so. but that, taken to gether, tliey form tne elastic offence of "practising manoeuvres." M. Delescluze gets s x moaths' im prisonment and S.MM. llW. Me*?rs. Peyrat, Oh a; leniel Lacour, Quentin and Dnret (this latter by de fault) to 2,uoui'. flAe; Messrs. Peyrouiou ami Gaillard, Jr., to ouc month's imprtsoumeut and 1601. flne, aud Gaillard, Sr., to 6iiuf. flue. Now, without any hair-splitting or mincing mat ters, I must sty tn.it il we once admit the principle of prosecuting individuals fur their "intentions," tnere can be no doubt but that the conviction ol the defendants is perfectly Intelligible. There cannot be the smallest doubt but that all the papers did DC tlie BlUHIlunv uva>. ?- - , mean, in paying a tribute to Haudlu, to show what their opiuton of the government was. Hut how the government was weak and Ill-advised enough to rnn the risk of having the speeches or Cre nlenx, Arago and Gauioetta hurled at its head, copied into every paper In the country, and read with all the eagei ness wn.ch the fromleut spirit of the times imparts to such spicy mon-ela, really passes comprehension, the < n.i, irtioii of >1. Iieiesciu/.e and the otuer uefend snts is very poor compensation for the errtfic in dictment launched against It by some of the keenest Intellects and bitterest tongues at tne Paris bar. It w as a fearful mistake to institute this prosecution, and the conaequeuces of it have yet to he developed. AUSTRIA. The .Ylllltnry Ntrength mf Austria and the War Power of Korope. T!1? ,r'>PorT o' Hie Military Committee, presented in the lower House of the iielelmrath on ihe loth, contained a brief expose ol tne military reforms takeu iu hand in ls?i?. The report, while pointing oui that tlm policy of Anstrla must t>e otic of self constrain' and sen' denial, mainly directed towards the preservation of peace, nevertheless eons ulna tuat, taking uer iMpiftuval puaiiion tutu account, she iun*t have the power at her command tosnccss tuli.v leoel every attack from without, and to suppress any violent disturbance of the consolida tion ol her liberal and economic development In th" Interior. It further g ves ut.erartee to tlie conviction that "the pre* m straining of the military resources in Europe cannot possibly be of anv long duration, aud must either end in a general disarmament, peaceably agreed to on a ! mutual understanding or result at no distant period in a violent war an I consequent universal exhaustion; for 110Mute was in a position to bear for any length o." time the burdens of the present armed peace without drifting Into financial and economic ruin."

Lastly, Italy?Standing army, 344.461 men; National Guard Mobile, exclusive of Vemtia. 132,000 men?total. 4so,46l men. The committee is of op nion that the figure given 111 the Armv bil for the strength or the Auslro-Hungarian army in time of war does not go beyond the limit required for the security of the Stale and tiie maintenance of its power and diguity. The committee flnallv declares that the acceptance of the proposed*Ariny bill by the l.e istuture of the two divisions of the monarchy will prove to Europe "that both parts of the empire are resolved to stand together In the hour of danger, and that Austria's power has Increased. Tlie decided expression of this resolution bv the representatives of the people would torm an important taci< r for the preservation of the peace of l urope, which would eventually acee>cntte the much tlc -ired event of a general disarming." SPAIN. The SpnnisU He volution, (From the London Globe, Nov. 16.1 The crisis 111 Spain litis yet to come; and It nifty be long before the real wishes 01 the uat.on come .0 the surface and decide the issue. At present there is an interregnum; wliut is more, that interregnum is only in its first stage; and to any one who luoks at the case impartially the aspect of aifalrs Is realy grave.

While such is the unsettled state of things throughout the country, discoid reigns among the chiefs of the revolution. Each is jealous ol tt'C others. And lroni a dread of losing his popularity not one ol the leaders ventures to name aud ad vocate an occupant (at present there are no candi dates) fur the vacant tluone. It is alleged t .at Gen eral Prim, unquestionably the foremost of the re volutionary chiefs, Becretly aspires to t e throne himself; although snctt a project on Ins part (if 11 be really entertained) is hopelesi, all .e from the natural jealousy of the other chicis and ir mi the fact that there is no great party In inc nation that would sup port htm. As a necessary consequence of this state of affairs republicanism gains ground. The advocates for tue abolition of royalty and the eatablisuuieut of a republic grow bolder every day. Yet this Is simply the consequence of the present deadlock of affairs. Every one who knows Spain knows that of all the possible solutions of the present crta.s the establishment of a republic is the most impossible. We do not venture to say that a republic n ay not be tried; for in revolutions the "party of action," the vloi.-nt und extreme men. at the outset frequently gain an ascendancy to which they have 110 real claim, and which is over thrown as soon as the national sentlmen s, the de sires and will of the people at large come Into phi v. hut when that event comes, as come it will, the voice of Spain will be giveu overpower!ngly against a republic. but, it net a republic, who Is to bo k ngr When a nation innkcB a dynastic rcvoliit.on there are two giand points to be aueuded to 111 the cuoice of a successor to the throne, lie ought, if possible, to lie a native; he ought also, if possible, to M one if 1 o does not break the link that binds the present to the past, but who is connected with the old traditions and hisior.c fa ne 01 the country.

Pro fessor Palinelrt considers the eruption to be the usual perc ursor of a termination to the loug series of ccniral eruptions of Muuut t csuvtus, Ramon of O.-irlbnldl Coming to America.

CITY POLITICS. The Charter Election?The Cww?e*t for the Mayoralty and Corporation Couaael?The Vacancy la the Office of Dlotrlct Attorney aud in the Hapreme Court?The Applicauto for Appointment?The Aldermaale Content? The Candidate* for School Comuiiaalonera and Truntrea. The clntrter election, which comes off on Tuesday nest, hao had considerable additional interest and excitement given to it front the fact that the Mayor alty Is vacant and the people are called upon to elect a Chief Magistrate lor one year?the unexpired term of the retiring incumbent. TUB MAYORALTY. The contest lu this regard, however, will lie tame In comparison with the Mayoralty contests of past years. The Tammany chieis in the late election struggle# have so perfectly and thoroughly disciplined their vast forces, and have them under auch obedience and control throngh the host of ortlcc-aeekers aud subalterns In the pay of the chiefs that to contest a city otllce of such high trust and power av that of Muvor may be deemed an entirely futile ail'&ir. The efforts made by the Demo cratic Union party to nomiuate a citizen from the democratic ranks that eoul I command any consid erable aiuouut or democrailc votes and at the same time be acceptable to the republican party having ended In failure, that organization may from hence forth lie deemed defunct as to any claim its present leaders may put forth for consideration as a political power in the city. There Ib but cue democ racy and Tammany Is its prophet. The re publican party, that they rn ght not be charged with surrenTerinlfTKo mTmiolpgj power of the city Into the hnnd9 of their formidable opponents with out a struggle, have nominated a candidate for Mayor. Whether they m gnt not have chosen better were tha chances of success better is hardly worth i commenting on. Any man was good enough to be | put in the ring to be knocked down, and certainly lis victim in this case has taken upon himself the sacrtlicial lata with commendable coolness and plack. Tammany selected Its standard bearer from the highest order of sachems that minister in the Temple of the Salut-one who ahvayB stood nearest to the high priest thereof, and to which high dignity he Is about to be trans lated, At any timo the present cardtdate of Tammany would be a formidable opponent, and under him hts brother Sachems might enter the lists against much greater forces than can be broughtto c uiront them at tins Juncture, the party, tlKrt> lore, acted wisely in nominating A. Oakey Hall as their tUndard bearer at tills time. FUturfe resu ts. as mar as anything in the future BfftY lie ovulate*! upou. have been weighed aim have bud their effect upon the cjjo,ce of the fifirtyrur Mayor. A man of Mr. flat?*p3pularttyfmoderation In politics and his a:reaily ad.ni tel Kno .ledge or municipal affairs must make A 2<?>d and capable Chief Magistrate. With one yeaTs- administrative experience ne may, at the opening or a new term. Justly and comment y ask lroni his fellow citizens at large, a^ irrespective of party, a reelection to Uiis high otllce. Ibtso.iens a prospect ol at least three years, duniig whch ja ninauy will more or less have lull control ol the city government. To this extent Mr- "all J*1'0'))'." nation Was a good thing for lanraany, and it will depend upon ?.r. Hall hHiiself whether it shall turn out to be a good thing for the city, lo be Chosen ihe ciiicf magistrate of the tlrst cltv lu the American republic is a great honor, and the citizen thus ll0n. red ou"ht ever to have before h.s eyes ihe single object of proving himself worthy of the trust reposed ill liliu. TUB REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE. The republican party have put in nomination as their candidate tor Mayor Air. A- Uonklltig. for.iici ?y u prominent merchant In tlilrf city amila leading mcmtier ol the Chamber of Commerce. He was a member of Assembly trora this city, serving In the Legislature two or three terms. He subse quently served one term tn Con toss. It was aitcr a 1 .rig caucus and a more than usually noisy discus sion-owing to the d.ssensious that exist in the re puolTcan ranks?that the choice fell upon Mr. couk lltiu. Sevcial other Influential clti/.cus of the repub can str.po were uamed and tncir claims advo cate I in caucus: but in every Instance the parties named for the proposed honor, when miii .ed thereof, at once dec.lned to accept. Under the circuiustauccs the only wonder la that the republicans nave succeeded so well tn a choice, and that they have induced Mr. Conkllng to accept the gage of battle on tUoir ochaif with meviUble defeat MlUcaTo"' IRK DEMOCRATIC UNION TO NOMINATE A CANDIDATE, ii,?

There is but little opposition to tue regular Tammany caod.dates. ASSISTANT ALDERMEN. Tiie contest that reigned for a time throughout all the Aldrriuanic districts for the nomination by local organizations has almost died our, and only Hie nom inees of the T itular organizations in each district wih enter the lists on Tuesday uext. It is generally admitted that the best men mat could have Ihjcii se lected in the various wards belonging to the Tam many democracy have received the nomination of the regu.ar Tammany Ahlermantc nominating con ventions, and these candidates will ail likely be elected. Had there been two democratic candidates running for Mayor the result wounl be differen . for then tu inany of the districts where candidates first appeared the contest would nave been maintained at little expense to those ambitious for assistant aldcrmanlc honors. Hut as it is those opposing the regular nominations will have to go into the contest at their own expense?to prml tickets, pay distributors, put up boxes and Incur all the cost of running the election machine?a rather costly matter; and therefore, as we have said, in almost every caae the regular nominee will tie lert in undisputed possession of the field.
