It is evident that the French army in Mexico is in a bad fix, as its commander, from his move ment on Puebia, calls for more 'men. Their prospects look exceedingly gloomy. They get no supplies from the country, and are sur rounded by an enemy apparently 'determined, who are watching every opportunity to take I advantage of them. The Mexican c-aeT;'.i?s are ever on the alert, and lasso every soldier tbey catch straggling from camp. The French communications have been re peatedly cut off by Mexican cavalry, and can only be re-established by strong nrencn guards, posted all along the route Iu this way the guerillas, who are ia strong force oti fhe liue o communication, harass the French unceasingly. The Mexicans are exultant ever tucctes already achhved. With from eighty to one hundred thousand men in the fhld, sgainst the fifteen thousand of the invader, the confessed disparity between the Mexican soldier and the French, is made dangerously light tor the lr tier. gHi; AR aDICAL jnax BOARD, BOARD for (Be exaxnns uent. will A Ms cb. en exai: rre utOMtrt Those as invitau-m, anr-oint r the Secretary of arty examined, win idieal Bow d. iT )R3I WI0.'

He pio posed that tbe city council of Daytos should appropriate money enocgh, and vole a tax for it, and release the city from the draft, and ' thus spare the lives sni limbs of the citizens who were too poor to pay. Tho tax. he said, would equal's- the burden and make the rich pay somer -t of that last dollar. Th three hun dred dollars, too, was just the price fixed by a Abolition Congress fir tho emancipation ot the nogroea of the District of Columbia. It was now the price of bleodj<be administration said to every man between the ages of twenty and forty-five, three bandied doiiars or your life. A tax by every city, township and eoumtv was just the way to meet it and qualize it. Greeley's Peach Terms Greeley is on: With another reinarkabio letter in which he says : Were tbe rebel States to say to the Fed eral government to-morrow: 'Withdraw your proclamation of freedom, and we will each re turn to loyalty aud elect members to Congress, to fulfill every constitutional obligation, we hold that tbe President would be at perfect liberty to accept the offer, if he saw fi taking care that every one, whether white, black, or mixed b'too, who had adhered to the Union, should be shield ed from persecution therefor.' " ty A dispatch lVom Washington, dated the 16th inst , says extraordinary eff jrts have been made in departments where nine month's troops are enlisted, especially that of General Banks, to have them re-enlist for another yesr. Aside from the bounty offered in the conscription act. additional offers have been promised from the State. After all the boasticg we have sav a, wo incline to the opinion that Chase's vuit to New York was not a fruitful one. The Commcrtwl says : ' Whatever f Meets may eventually pro ceed from his consultaticua hern, it is believed that nothing has been accomplished at a bank under the new law of Congress, or toward p!ac- ng a loan upon tlte market." Dist atches from New Hampshire state that official returns show that Judge Eastman, the Democratic candidate, lacks but three or four hundred votes of an election by majority.

A few we-ks ago a portion of the3(st Tennes see regiment, (Colonel W.

Special Correepoadenoe of tbe Memphis Appeal.) Vicksblro, March 84, 1863. Great activity scorns to prevail among the military in this regiou, and the movements of the enemy indicate that active operations against this place karejeommenced, particularly for the possession of Ysioo river ; but I am gratified to know that counter movements on our side are being made which will frustrate tha designs of the enemy in that quarter. He cannot get a larger force into that country than we can, and his boats axe iu momentary danger of being cut off and destroy od ; while his troops will be en tirely dependent on them for the means of trans portation. Among the outrages committed by tbe Yan kees ia the- neighborhood of Greenville, I am mfor ned of the following : A party of officers visited tbe bou-e of a lady, and desired her to prepare them a dinner. This being complied with, the officers feastod themselves on the fat of the land, from the lady's table. Upon finish ing thoir repast, they could not resist their nat ural penchant for stealing something, and pock eted ali the siivs -waro on the table, in return for the kiv 1 hospitality of their hostess. But it was no doubt well for this lady that she got off with the loss of her silver-service, instead of meeting with worse indignities, as many others Live done. ' Nothing definite is yet known of the opera tions in the Dser oreek and Sunflower country, but every credence is expressed here that we need fear no disaster there, as we have the means of throwing forward troops to any amount that-may be required. And the last we have from there is that the enemy is being hemmed in on both ends, which will cut off his Nliuel, aud render his capture almost certain. At the present stage ef water he can move his bots over farms and through the smallest creeks, and by this he expects to gain an ad vantage by penetrating so far into the interior as to render our defense hopeless. But in this h is mistaken, as we have better moans of com municating witti that country than be has, and are not slow in improving the advantages. I have not haard of any heavy fighting in that section since Saturday, but it is likely that a good deal of skirmishing may be going on, it being beyond the reach of hearing distance from here. From a trustworthy gentleman just down from there I le&ru that our forces have not the slightest doubt of their ability to eject the en emy, and no fears are entertained of any reverse. AH is hopefulness and desire to meet tbe enemy, with the fullest assurances that we shall yet be able to drive him away! and save that country from Lis clutches. Opposite the city apparent quietness prevails, and no doubt Grant is awaiting the result of the marauding expeditions on the Yazoo. But not knowing his designs, it is well to keep pre pared to meet him here should he take it into his heal to give us a fight while our attention is turned to other quarters ; and it is suspected by macy that these operations in tbe distance may be intended both in earnest and as a feint. The rith a view of getting in our rear, and the second for the purpose of inducing us to draw off portion of our forces from here. Perhaps, if we should be so inconsiderate as to weaken ourselves at this point by sending away our troops to reinforce other points, he might thick that was the proper time for an at tack here. But no such folly will be committed by tbe commauder of this post, and our strength will not be impaired a mile, although there may be large reinforcements sent up the Yesoo. His gunboats now seem to be mostly all engaged in a permanent situation in the Yazoo swamps, and the few that are left hero cannot mako much of a demonstration. Yesterday morning a Federal deserter was seen crming over the river in a skiff. He landed a short distance below the wharf boat, where our pickets received bim into our lines and de lirered him over to the proper authorities. The well known steamer John J. Roe has been lying off in the fleet above for several days, 'in com pany with a number of ethers. Yesterday fore noon a large transport was noticed coming down from above, and landed at the general, qnarterage of the transport fleet. Several gun boats still keep watch over the head of the canal. About eleven o'clock yesterday the two Fara gut boats below dropped down a little ways, sdpposed to Warrenton. and for about thirty minutes kept up a tremendous shelling. It was Dt known what they weie shooting at, but pre sumed to bo at our batteries at Warrenton. It was also belttved that an attempt might be male by tbem to Hring troops over tbe river with tbe assistance of the Era No. 5 ; but this is r.ot probable, as they have not yet got them down through the canal. NESTOR. THE V1HDT AT GBEENWOOD. I.aif Waahingtea Burner.. To the Atiociated Prem, Konh. Washington, March 17. Tho belief in tha evacuation of Vicksbnrg is very strong hero to' day in all clashes, and is based en two grounds ; one that tha J oderal forces have forced an evac nation, cutting eff supplies and nearly sur rounding the city ; and another that Port Hud son i6 to be left to hold tho Mississippi river, if possible, while the rebel troops at. Vicksburg are to rsli back into the interior, and eventually reinforce the rebels in Eastern Tennessee for another invasion of Kentucky, as telegraphed to-day from Louisville. The Navy Department has dispatches from Admiral Porter, dated the 7th, before Vicks bnrg, which says that ha had beard tha signal agreed on between himself and Commander South so soon as the latter should get into the Yazoo river. His position in tho rear would be so near the Mississippi as to permit the latter to hear the signal. The reported capture of rebel transports, therefore, confirms tho success of the expedition. There is great anxiety to hear later news from the West. A Navy Department official- adarertisement appears for proposals for tho constructing of " war steamers, to be built of iron, aud iron-clad. These are to be the most formidable war ves sels afloat, eight thousand tuns burd?n. and armeu wuu ten guns iu casemiie, eacn gun weighing twenty fire tuns without the car? riage. The Pastmaster-General has authorized post masters throughout the country to frank all offi cial communications of collectors and assessors of internal revenue, with their deputies and as sistant?. The young iady who, it is ascertained, be trayed General Stonghton into the hands of the enemy, has been placed in prison. Oa her per son letters weYe found, apprising bar of another raid which was summarily prevented. All disloyal residents of counties in front of Washington are to be sent to the enemy's lines. . Gen. Lockwood has completed his arrange ments for catching smugglers and spies, and has control of the Maryland shores for the pur pose. In his order he savs he will respect the institutions and laws of Maryland, and protect the people, so long as they commit no sets of disloyalty to the Federal government ; but bo threatens to punish, with .protracted imprison ment, all who are caught iviolating the laws of the United States. The Haytien Minister dined with Secretarv Seward to-night. It is not true that he has taken the late residence of Senator Latham. Another crowd of refugees arrived to-day, from Richmond. There seems to be a large ex odus from Virginia. Gen. Stahl, confirmed Saturday as major-general, is to be in command of all the cavalry forces in the department of Washington. A fright was caused last night, by rumors of a rebel raid. It arose out of the fact that the lightning interfered with the working Jof the raimary teiegrapa, leading to me inrerenc-3 that the enemy had cut the lines. Information of the arrival of another rebel pi rate at Nassau has been received here. It is thought she is the vessel that ran into Hilton Head and fired shots at the fort a;few days since.

J It has been for som time obv:on, shit n. generals conducting the operations against Vicksbnrg bavo regarded an assault upon the place in fronas impracticable, and that they have set about devising way and means for turning tbe position. The canals, projected and labored npon with this purpose, are three in number that across the peninsula in front of Vicksburg, the success of wh.ch would give us access to, and the command of, the river below the city ; that at Lake Providence, leading from the Mississippi into the Tensas river, a tributary of Red river; aud that-of Yazoo pass. The latter seems to be tho most successful and imoortant. Eight miles below Helena, Arkansasand on the opposite side of the river, and very closo to it, is a little lake, known as Moon lake, which is lower than tho surface of the river at high water, and from which a narrow and deep channel leads to the Coldwater river, which takes its rise in the northwest counties of Mi- principal tr IDAHO.

Our informant left the fleet on Saturday, arriving at Helena on Tuesday, on tbe Carl, and hra oo the Kenton yesterday. From him we gather the following particulars of the engage-in--n of the iron -Clad gunboat Chilicothe and a Confederate battery at Greenwood, tbe junction of the Yullabusha and Tallahatchie rivers on Friday last. Tbe expedition through the pass oocsifsts of two iron-clad gunboats, tbe Chilli colhe and Baron Dt-Kalb, two rams, five of the ovnequito fleet, and eighteen transports. The Ch'nicothe was loading the fleet when she cam npon a battery which opened tire upou her. She replied all day on Friday, and at n'ght the firing ceased. The battery mtde a shot through one of the portholes of the Ciiillicothe, killing four men aud wounding six teen others. The boat was hit sixty-four times in all, and recoived considerable injury to her ejseciates. She exhausted her ammunition and was compelled to oease firing in consequence. The damage done the battery is not known. Ti e flett was compelled to come to halt there, as lb h.-r-Ierv is quite formidable and will have to bs silenced before the expedition can proceed into the Yazoo river. It is quite likely a severe battle, will be fought at Greenwood Tee transports are badly damaged from the trtes ai d nai in the pas. The Confederate bittery threw hot and shell, aud some of tbe shots were slxiy-four-pounders of the Arm strong gun. Thoy were very effective upon the ChillicOtae. While the fleet was passing down the Tallahatchie, some twenty miles above the battery, the. wreck of a steamboat was dUcov- i a large lot of cotton, probably 1,000 reitg. It had been set on fire to avoid g into the hands of tbe Federals. ?k of the boat was thought to be the th Parallel, which had been up the atheiiog cotton to make breastworks of. derate gunboat and two transports were nty-fonr hours ahead of the fleet when ry was encountered.

Three rioters have beeu cap- ! tured. Several were wounded. Vrom the New York Ho raid. Away np in tne Koeicy mountain region north of Utah and Colorado, and west of Ne orasaa. lies trie cc-uniry tiamei suosnone on some of our maps, to be hereafter known as Idaho, pronounced with the accent on the first and last syllables. It embraces four degrees of latitude from forty-one to torty-five in the eastern half and from forty-two to forty-six in the western half and thirteen degrees of longi rude from one hundred and tour to! one hun drsd and seventeen, the pony express route from Missouri to California traverses the eastern half of it. The Rocky mountains form a gi gantir back-bone, stretching up northwesterly from Siuth pass, and innumerable rivers act as the veins and arteries, carrying off tbe meltel snow from those high latitudes and sending their tribute to tne f atoer ot waters. A tow years ago no white man reside 1 within its wide limits. To-day it contains an adventurous mining popu lation. Ten years more, and towns and cities, and churches and schoolhouses, the arts and comforts of civilized life, will bo diffused over it. It is thus that the American people sub due the desert, and carry out their groat des tiny. Congress, rt its last session, passed an act or ganizing a territorial goverara'mt for Idaho. carving it out from Oregon, Decolah, and Wash ington territories, just as the Territory of Colo rado has been carved out from Kansas, Nebras ka and Uiah. Its effisers consist of a governor, secretary, three judges, a district attorney and a marshal. A territorial legislature or council is to be convened to adopt u coda of laws for the new territory, and, thus, the usnal machinery being put in motion, Idaho takes her place as on of the nascent States of the Union. Very little is known cf the resources ot the new Territory ; but its principal attractions at this time is its supposed mineral wealth, in the autumn of 1861 discoveries were made showing that gold actually existed in that region, and was to be found in paying quantities. These mines wore said to be located on the head of Salmon river a tributary of the Columbia. In the Spring cf 1862 there was a rush from Cali fornia, Salt Lake and Pike's Peak, and the coun try was pretty well prospaciad. As soon as navigation opened, three or lour hundred per sons from St. Louis passed up the Missouri as far as Fort Benton, on the boats of the Ameri can Fur company. The most of these St Lfnis emigrants were sent under tho auspices of the American Exploring and Mineral company an organization that still exists. From Fort Ben ton they found a good road to the gold fields, one hundred and eighty miles distant. This route bid fair to bo the one most to be traveled by gold-seekers during the coming summer. In the early part of the season the miners were not very snccossfal ; but about the 1st of September last rich placers were found, from which the miners were said to have realized from twenty to forty dollars per day. These discoveries were made on Grasshopper creek, near the three forks of the Missouri, iu the vi cinity of Bg Hole prairie.' Mines wore also opened on Gold creek and Prickly Pear valley, which yielded finely. The gold Is of a fine quality, known among miners as scale gold, and at the mint would be worth $19 50 per ounce. The company above referred to have some very magnificent specimens at their office in St. Louis. On Deer Lodgo creek extensive, placers were opened, and late in tho autumn tho miners laid out a town on that stream, at the junction of Mullen's road and the famous real constructed by the lamented Lander. The valley of this stream is described as one of the finest in the vicinity, abounding In game of every variety to be found in the moctntains. At lost accounts Deer Lodge city, as the new town was called, though but a tew months old. boasted nearly a hnndred houses. A regular line of commu nication is kept up with Salt Lako and Fort Laramie, and there is a prospect of considera ble migration thither from tha Pike's Peak re gion. All the valleys on the bead waters of the Mis souri are exceedingly fertile. Near Deer Lodge city is a settlement cf half a dozen French families, who have resided there for several years. With them is one John Grant, an old mountaineer. This individual has a herd of six hundred cattle, ps fine as any that could be found in the State, and, though he had paid little attention to agriculture, a lew fields of sissippi, and is the l alianatchie, wbtcn pouring into the Yalla busha, forms the Yazoo, which empties i'rrto the Mississippi a few miles above Vicksburg. The Coldwater, Tallahatchie aud Yazoo rivers run through tbe richest cotton region of the State of Mississippi, trie iszoo piss outwpnse consist ed ia eutting a canal from the Mississippi into Moon lake, and sending such a volume of water thro' Yazoo pass that steamers could make their way into Coidwater, and thencu into the Yazoo, taking the rebel works on the Yazoo in tho rear Irive us the command of the Xazoo river, an we could obtain a foot-bold on ibe Vicksburg ridge, and take the city by regular approaches u tno ueionses were louna too formidable for storming. It will be remembered that Genera Sherman failed to obtain a footing on the dry land in the rear of Vicksburg, being unable to get out ot trie labyrinth ot bayous and marshes below Haines bluff, the fortifications at whic place were so strong that no attack was made upon tbem. lhe Yazoo pass enterprise is certainlv one of the most Jimeuit and hazardous ever under taken. The expedition launched upon the Cold water river has no means of retreat. It most go through triumphantly or fall into the hands ot the enemy. Jf n succeeds, the fall of Vicks uuig uccuiues a uioru question OI lime, as our troops will exchange the marshy border of the Mississippi lor high ground, ai.d will actually invest the place.

Hmteu in the Uriiinh Ilooae of Lorda In the British housa of lords, on the 20;h ult.. The Earl of Eilenborough asked whether the government would lay on the table the dispatch from tbe consul general at Warsaw, in so far as it related to the immediate origin of the present insurrection in roiana, and whether any com muaication bad been made by the Ru3ssian government with respect to the origin f the insurrection, or by the Prussian government with respoct to any engagement it might have entered Into with a view ot aiding' Russia in its suppression, lie iU that it would bo an insult to suppose that any Englishman did not view with disgust the conduct attributed to tho Rus sian government a short time ago. It was supposed Kussia would adopt a milder policy toward the Poles, and that all difficulties were on the point of 'subsiding, when this affair so suddenly broke out ; but it appeared that the ponce hie: marttea the political opinions of every person capable of hearing arms, and the attempt to force the conscription npon these who were obnoxious for their opinions or ability drove the roles to desperation. Its recollected that when the French revolutioa broke out, in 1848. an English minister had tho candor to declare that rwas provoked, and be .loped the same candor would be shown now that the Poles coul 1 on'y look to England and Franca, unless the mur murs of public opinion even in Russia wre felt by the government. The French p-'opla and army must recollect tho gallant mannor in which tho roles bad (ought in their armies, and be trusted that they would now ba mindful of that noble brotherhood In arms. The conduct of Austria had teen most loyal, and no government could impute the slightest reproach to h.r. Bat what could be said of tho conduct of Prussia? The Prussian people had just celebrated the annivertary of their uprising against trance, and could ihey look with indif ference to their army being moved fo the fron tier to assist in riveting the chains of Poland T Nothing could more widen the breach between the King and the people of Prussia, and he had uch a confidence m a merciful Providence that he still believed that the miseries ef this out break were the beginning ot a better time.

Thev prepared an address, and he believed it was not inconsistent with tho treaty of Vienna, or the concessions desired by the present Emneror. but all their endeavors came to nothing. The middle classes, mbtnisting tbe Russian government, established secret societies, and the government, aware of them, did not attempt to top them by thu legitimate means at their dis posal. They adopted a most unfortunate course, on the advice, hi believed, of the Marquis Wiel opolski, and enforced the conscription in the most severs manner, without any of those modi fications which rendered it tolerable jn other countries. Th whole number was taken from the towns alone and from lists prepared by the police, and the result was that the secret socie- M.'g, waich might nevor have risen, were driven to despair.

Daring one of the last discussions in the late Federal Congress, Mr. Voihees, of Indiana, un dertook to portray a number of the Abolition leaders. In the course of his remarks he said Mr. Speaker, it is either my rood fortune or my bad fortune never to have been a member of & legislative body until I took my seat in this Uorgress. Consequently I may not be so fa miliar with the rules that obtain among mem cers of deliberative bodies as others who have ni more experience. But I must confess Mr jfpeaicer, that, with my limited experience, I have observed the course of this debate with amazement, and with some degree of honest in- crgnai o I. This debate was opened by the gentleman from New York (Mr. Olin) with a lecture to this side of the house, informing us how he desired we should discuss this question. He expected us to observe certain rules and maxims laid down by him for the government of our minds and our tongues. Ho informed us what we were to say, and iu what spirit we were to say it Oar deportment was his especial care. He gave us that kind of warning beforehand that school masters sometimes indulge in when their pupils are about to be paraded on exhibition before the public We were desired to behave ourselves and to pursue a certain line of conduct marked out for us in advance by his magisterial author ity. The air of a testy, domineering nedagosrue pervaded tho style and substatco of mil his re- marRg. Now. sir, with all the respect that I have for the position which the gentleman from Mew York occupies as chairman of the military com mittee. allow me to inform bim plainly to his lace tfiat 1 Know of nothing in his position, rotning in his principles, nothing in bis talents, nothing in his character that entitles him to nako, or justifies him in attempting to make for me, or for any member cf the minority on this side of the house any rule of conduct on any .tubject whatever. Those which he has laid down to govern this discussion will net find respectful consideration at my hands, much loss adoption. After mm conns the strao and button from Peuueylvania, (Mr. Campbell.) who howled torth his threats on this floor like some angry animal iu pursuit of prey. He tells us what will happen to us all, benevolently and charit ably, to eternal condemnation and special dam nation. That is very kiud of him. Possibly it has affected somebody's nerves. Doubtless it did not affect his own. I mast say, however.that it not affect mine at all, except as a gust of harsh and discordant sound is always more or i iess jarring io my nervous system, it passed by this side of the house as mere wind, some what unpleasant and disgnsting. but entirely harmless. 1 submit that the military and ma licious gentleman from Pennsylvania has no right thus to afflict and annoy the persecuted minority of this house. After him, in the ofder of debate, on the other sido, comes that strange and eccentric gentleman from Ohio, (Mr. Bingham,) who so often holds this house and these galleries in listening and pondering suspense and atteution. In his private intercourse he it one of the kind est and most amiable gentlemen whom I ever had the good fortune to meet j but on the floor a stranger would take him to be, not merely Cato, tho censor, for, I believe, Cato was very dignified, and certainly the gentleman from Ohio hardly ever is, laughter but some furi ous actor in a play, whose part required him to scold anLrave at every human being who was so unfortunate as to fall beneath his dreadful scowl. He is stormy and terrible to those who know him not, but to those who know him woll, gentle as summer, and as tender as the dove who woes his mate. I am apologizing for his manner to thoro who do not understand him. His terrific outbreaks here against the minority may be regarded as a sort of pleasant episode to the grave proceedings of this house, a little ridiculous, but perfectly innocent It ia only his manner that isevere, not his matter, lie tells us what will be tolerated, and what will not be tolerated, how wa shall behave, what we shall say. what will b worthy of us, and what uu worthy of us. He starts out by telling us that tho language of the distinguished gentleman from Ohio, (Mr. VaUandighatn) who held spell bound this house from the position in which I stand, with one of the ablest arguments I ever heard, was ail unworthy of a member of this body. Who constituted him a judge of his colleagues? Where does he find the authority to arraign Vorheers on this fbor? 8ir, there is but one reply to language and conduct like this.

The Parliamentary Previaioa for I he .Prince of Wain. Correspondence of the Toronto Globe, j London, February 21. On tbe third day of this week, her Majesty the Queen sent a message to both houses of Parlia ment, in accordance with the tenor of the first paragraph in tha opening speech, asking them to provide the mean3 tor suataiuing the onncelv dignity of her eldest sbn, when he should be come wedded with the Princess of D nmarh. Nothing loth, the lords and commons instantly responded that it would give them infinite pleas ure to comply wttn this request. The way thus cleared, a definite motion was made to the Commons, the night before last No reliable statement having got into the papers of tbe sum that Parliament would be asked to vote and an impression prevailing in some quarters that it wonld be so considerable as to be seri ously objected to, the members flocked to their places and overflowed into the lobbies while ev ery beat in all the galleries was occupied, and Lbundreds mora pressed ; r entrance who were oi necessity shut out. .nearly an hour having been consumed in preliminary busi ness, to the evident annoyance of the majority of the members, the veteran Premier puiled off his brown kid gloves, doffed is shabby hat, and rose amidst general cheers to propose a resolu tion for the purpose of providing, in the words of the message, "an establishment for the Prince and Princess of Wales, suitable to the rank and dignity of then- station. With much tact and sagacity, his lordship endeavored, and moat suc cessfully, at the outset, to highten tha admira tion of iiia audience for our monarchy, by con trasting it with the despotisms of certain nations of the continent and with the American republic. When he spoke of the ''evils incident to arbitra ry sway," there were a few "hear hears," but when he added " we witness in the West the wide spread misery and desolation which are sometimes created by democratic and republi can institutions, tha Dry side ot the house sent forth loud and almost frantic cheers, as if delighted fiat it was so. They applauded so iuatily that tbe radicals were struck with mute amazement, I suppose, for they did not put in a single protest against that being aid to the door of Democracy, which they hold te be attributable wholly to other causes. Lcrd Palmerston then went on to point ont how liberal the Parliaments ot other days had been to Prin ces of W ales who were far less deserving of the respect ef the nation than Albert Edward ; and concluded by proposing the annual vote oat of tbe consolidated fund of 40,000 for the Prince, and 10.000 for the Princess every year of their lives, with the proviso that in the event of the lady being left a widow, the 10,00 should be increased to 30,000. The moderation of the proposal seemed to take the house generally by surprise, and the resolution was passed amidst loud and general cheering, though, not till Sir H. Willoughby, on the tory side, and Mr. Augustus Smith and Sir John Trelawuey, on the radical benches, had- asked some questions that were held to be rather invidious, respecting the Prince's in eoma from th Duchy of Cornwall. Mr. D'ls raeli was especially indignant that anybody should question tha extreme moderateness of the proposal made to thohouse, but Sir H. Wil--.ihhv and Sir J.

Ha S'Tiie'i, ae year was considered sutneent for Mm r there was no necessity to app'y to ran lament to make that up. Lord Pa'tmerston had stated that tbe yearly income from the Duchy of Corn wall was now 00,000, but he had cot taken into account the accumulations for a succession of years, amounting to at least 700,000. And besides this, them was already voted out of the consolidated fund a sum of lb. 000 a year, which went into the pockets of the Prince, in stead of bis taking certain tin dr.ties granted in corrupt times to profligate princes. All these matters, taken into account, there was no ques tion that the Prince ot Wales' income would be at least 100,000, without any grant from Par liament. Only these tbrae independent members, how ever, had a word to say in behalf of the rate payers, and the 50,000 was added to the charges on the consolidated fund. In the course of the discussion it came out that Parliament had already paid over 20.000 for Marlborough house fur the Prince's residence, and would have to pay, as it had done of late, 0000 a year for the stablirg attached to that house. Moreover, the expenses of the journey to Canada and the States amounted to 14,000, for which Parlia ment bad been called upon, and this, in addi tion to 40,000 paid for the privy purse of his Royal Highness. Thus the total amount of the various charges paid by the nation during the minority of the Prince of Wales was very nearly ."0.000 a year. It was stated by the Premier that '320.000, of the 600,000 or 700,000 accumulated from the Duchy of Cornwall had been expended npon tbe estate in the shooting of hares, pheasants and snipes. Nj doubt- it is all right for tbe eldest son of the Queen to be thus pampered, but the story is by no means so delightful to read as it would be if tbe people of Lancashire were not prostrate in the dust and with no hope of a speedy restoration. I sbouid mention that tbe corporation of Lon don bave resolved to give tbe princess a wed ding present, not to exceed in value 10,000. Enormous sums are to be expended in tbe dec orations of Qravesend when the princess arrives on the 7th of March, and preparations are eve rywhere making for untold thousands of people to witness the procession from . the railway through Southwsrk and London to Paddingten. The high church clergy are sadly annoyed that the marriage has been arranged to take place in the season of lent, and several of their leaders have caused it to be made public that tbey will, in eo: sequence, have naugnt to do with the celebration.

The writer says : "On the day before yesterday a body of three made an attack on the neighborhood nine miles south of tb s place, killing and scalping Spencer Moore and his son, after which they erected a pole, upon which they placed a red flag, and left, taking nearly all the horses in that section. While in pursuit of them yesterday another party, consisting of about thirty, attacked the neighborhood east ten miles of this place, wonnding mortally, a Mr. Stump, and killing a Mr. Bailey. At this scene of action, they erected another red flag, then proceeded five miles south, stole some horses, and stock up another piece of red cloth. While this was transpiring about twenty cfthem passed within a mile of this town, tak ing all tbe hones in their wake. When tho above occurred, a company of State troops in three detachments were all on different trails Expressess were sent to the frontier regiment, which were responded to by Captains Wood and Rowland, who detailed two scouts from their rasp-dive camps. The writer says but seventy-five men are left to protect a frontier of sixty miles, from Red rivar station to Qainsville, and they are without a ration for man or horse, except what they ob tain with their own memns, while their horses have been starved and exhausted since this excitement. the writer incloses a letter received from a second lieutenant commanding one of the de tachments that went in pursuit, dated Camp Mains February 13th, iu which be states that after foilowino' the trail for some distance and iviiuin an hoar and a half of where t, they were compelled to abandon their animals being entirely broken iv then sent a dispatch to Captain Rowland's station, and the last heard was that hie scouts were still in pursuit of the Indians. coming they hs the pur down. jy A fire occurred in day last week, which de of tha business portion o Hodginviile, Ky., one troy e J an entire square the city. aud left h tu. waved to him to tarn bar were somewhere near at hand.

The wild ex 1 '"SS" I of the American Jacobins are fast rivaling those of the French Jacohina of the last century. The sentiments they some times give utterance to are a'-oog the moat atrocious, the most revolting, to which modern civilisation is forced to listen. They seem tc bo. lost to all sense of shame. We have endeavored to school ourselves so aa to be surprised at noth ing. We confess, however, that if the Jacobins do not occasionally get the better of our stoicists, they press it hard. It is difficult always to listen to them unmoved, despite all our efforts in this direction. Take an example which will illus trate what we mean. Some time since Wendell Phillips delivered an address at tbe Cooper ics i tute, New York, winding up with the following paragraph : "A hundred' years hence some Tacitus will take Phocion as the noblest model of the Greek, and Brutus ot the Roman put Hampden for the glory of England, and Lafayette for France choose Washington as the bright consummate flower of tbe last generation, and John Brown for this, and then, dipping his pen in the sun light, he wil write high ia tbe clear bin above them all. the name of tho patriot soidie . states man and martyr Tonssaint L'Ouvertur" The bloody wretch who is thus arxtheosised. whose name is placed " high above" that of Washington, masacfed with fiendish cruelty about three thousand of the white race. Tho scenes of horror which were witnessed in St. Domingo ander the leadership of the ghonl Tonssairt long since became by-words for everything that is cruel and infamous. No ago or sex was spares. The helpless infant was murdered In cold blood before tha face of its screaming mother, whose cries were drowned by the yells of the infuriated demons in the forta of human beings. The flag of this Toa-tsaint or of his coadjutors was a white baby, stack upon the end of a pole and borne aloft amid the bloody orgies then and there perpetrated. Tho fact is distinctly and snequivocally stated by Edward Evrrett, and is abundantly substan tiated by competent testimony. Yet as individ ual, an American, supposed te be human, sup posed to bo sane, sop posed to be morally responsible for what he says, gets up before a public audience in an American city, and de clares that this dark monster is not only eqnal to Washington, but altogether superior ! One finds it difficult to restrain himself within the limits of propriety in view of the utterance in a Christian land and in the nineteenth century of a sentiment which would disgrace a Sepoy. Hayti, at the time the insurrection broke out, yielded about one hundred and twenty-five thousand of our hogsheads of sugar. As if a hot blast from perdition had been suddenly let loose upon it. the island at once reiapwt into barbarism Nearly sixty years have since rolled away, and now the degraded natives are com pelled to import what little sugar they use. Cot foe, which grows witfr scarcely any labor except picking, has fallen off in amount more than fifty percent, and what little there is raised b so badly prepared that the quality is altogether inferior to what it was when tbe island belonged to civilisation. It is naturally one of the most fruitful in the world, and produces every species of tropical frtjUa and edible vegetables, as well as cotton, logwood, indigo, etc., etc. The moral results of the revolting msmewis of Tcussaint and his infamous gang of K wretches are in harmony with the natural. In- " science, vice, misrule and crime of every des cription make this once lovely island like ths original abode of the negro. We do not know that the natives eat each ottui. aci this respect they may be a shade m advance of Dahomey, bat in the gen ral qualities of civilisation they are altogether inferior to the slaves of the Southern States. Tho population of Hayti is about half a million. Jeffrard is part white, and it is said that he ia endeaving to induce the natives to work and to quit their savage habits and beastly instincts. When he overthrew the ebony despotism which preceded bim, he found numerous vsctims chained to rocka in caves, and thus left te tii by inches ! Wendell Phillip wouid doubtkss consider this the sure evidence of a splendid civilization, to which this country should aspire.
