DAILY E VENING STAR.
WASHINGTON OUT: FMDAY APTEaifOOM, APRfL 91. the stab nr raltimobe. Persons served with the Star in Balti more, are requested to pay nothing for subscriptions to any one beside Andrew Muirhead, who is the agent for the de livery of the paper, until further notice. Aoy orders left at the book-store of Cathers A Brother, corner of Baltimore and Hoi lid ay streets, or with Andrew Muirhead, No. 45 Britton street, near Madison, for the northern part of the city, will be promptly attended to. SPIRIT 0? THE MOBNTNQ PRESS. The Intelligence eschews editorial to day. The Union devotes a column to an on slaught against the late speech of General Cullom. The allegation is that Mr. Gid dings and his friends have found a co-la borer in General C., notwithstanding the fact that the General represents a south ern district. Mr. Clingman, writing from the House over his own signature, to the Union, makes a strong epistolary argu ment against the insane bill; placing his opposition to it principally on the ground of its unconstitutionality. The Sentinel gives the Union and the administration some of its old-fashioned 44 independent support," accusing them of breaking down the Democratic party? of causing its "disintegration." It will do the editor good to read what we write in another column, on the disinte gration of both parties. There are plain truths there, on which the people may ponder to advantage. BEBHETI'S STANDING LIES. The number of falsehoods of Bennett of the Herald, is legion. It matters not how glaring they are shown to be, or how often disproved, he still clings to them with an astonishing pertinacity. We give, to-day, four of his most notorious lies, which, though corrected, he is almost daily repeating. We notice his delibe rate lie, stating that Mr. Buchanan de nounced President Pierce's policy in the presence of Judge Douglas and himself. Judge Douglas contradicts this, by say ing he was not within one hundred miles of Bennett at any one time in Europe. Second, his lie that half of the Star is owned by Colonel Forney, who has not, and never had, a penny's interest in it, and never contributed a line to its col umns. Third, that Jefferson Davis is in terested in the Gadsden treaty, a false hood so atrocious that it would cost Ben nett his ears if he even uttered it in the presence of gentlemen in this city. Fourth, that President Pierce instigated the diffi culty between Messrs. Breckinridge and Cutting, a lie so gross that the bar-room topers here would blush to repeat it. So much for to-day. AH INTERESTING WORE. Joe Shillington sends us " Slade's Travels in Turkey," published by Wm. Taylor & Co., No. 18 Ann street, New "Vork. The author is Adolphus Slade, an Englishman, who is, or was, an admiral of the Turkish fleet; a devil-may-care sailor, who tells of the Turks and Turkey just as he knows them ; treating subjects of peculiar interest at this time in a very agreeable, yet blunt way. Nothing likely to interest an American inquirer relative to Turkey, her people, their man ners, customs, Ac., seems to have es caped him. The book is much after the order of that of J. Ross Browne, em bracing more details of fact, if less sprightliness. It is well worth reading. Db. Ives's Nbw Work?W. A. Ken nedy, bookseller, Seventh street, between G and H, has laid on our table the work of Dr. Ives, entitled " The Trials of a Mind in its Progress to Catholicity." It cannot fail to be interesting to other de nominations than Catholics. [Ty* The Richmond Examiner says: " TJose who speak of Mr. Daniel as still editor or owner of this neivspaper, speak absurdly, and do him wrong. Mr. Daniel has no more control over or share of. or property or interest in, this estab lishment, than the man in the moon. Mr. D. has a right, after a term of years, to purchase a fractional interest in this newspaper; but that, as the lawyers would say, is an interest in future, and contingent a right in posse, and not in esse." So much the greater pi ty. The friends of the Examiner indulged the fond hope that his bold, life-giving pen, would soon aga:n grace its columns, which are now so dull and crazy. ESGIItIB 3 ASD SCK V EVOR's lxSTKrMI5T8. We invite attention to the fact that Mown F. W. A R. King, of Baltimore, have removed their establishment frem No. 33 Sooth street, to No. 22# Baltimore street, in that city, one door east of Charles, in the Theatre building. At the same time we desire to commcnd to all purchasers of such instruments as are manu factured by these gentlemen, the excellence and superiority of the workmanship through out. The Measn. King came to Baltimore from New York, furnished with the most ex tensive experience in every department of the business, and by their seal, industry and en terprise, they have given an impetus to their peculiar profession it never had before Sac cess has rewarded their efforts, and they now take a central position in the city, and enter upon possession with a wide-spread and well earned reputation. These are the sort of men ?practical, energetic, and skilful artisans and manufacturers?that add t? the real wealth and attractiveness of every city, and we hope that the Messrs. King, and all others who thus oontribute to industrial enterprise, will find in public oonfidence and general patronage, their well deserved reward. Two thousand German emigrants were at Antwerp at the latest date, wait ing for vessels to take them to the United States. rfPort the Secretary of the State of New York, gives the whole numh?*?f paupers relieved during the year 1853, at 180,027. WAJHUGTOJI IXVI AMD 80SSIF. The Disintegration of Parties ?We believe it is very generally admitted that what w? the great national Whig party In 1848, has no longer an existence. One has but to be in Washington for ? month to realize the fact, however. There is no longer accord between the mass of the southern and northern Whigs, those of the format willing to eonticue oornec tion with the latter, being a* scarce as Silver Grays are, since Mr. Fillmore went out of power. This split has resulted from differ ence on principles. It is widening hourly, the northern Whigs of Congress becoming more anti-feouthern ia their tendencies, while the southern Wbfgs fare hourly coming to look more favorably on principles and measures which, in the canvass of 1844, ware regarded as thosa only of persons fully identified with the great Democratic party. This matter is thoroughly understood among politicians here, all of whom, without discretion of party, have long tinea ceased to make any question con cerning the correctness of this statement. The disruption; however, has not been confined to the Whig party; the affairs of the other side being also in a shocking condition. On the De mocratic side, however, a difference on prin ciples has very little to do with the trouble. ! The Hards are off?gone from their national organization, past per adventure. They are by long odds the most bitter revilers of the Demo cracy of the South, without distinction of sec tion; both sections of the southern Democracy being now recognised as supporters of the Pierce administration with equal iest. As bitterly as they hate President Pierce, they avow sentiments of equal hostility to the south ern Democratic party, for failing to justify and sustain them in their opposition to the National Administration. These facts are appreciated by all close observers now in W ashington, whare it is anticipated that, witbin a year, they will openly support the most ultra anti-south ern measures and views which may be mooted. This split, as we have time and again ex plained, originate? from the failure of the Ad ministration to submit to their dictation in the matter of dividing out the spoils. No one pre tends te claim for it a more respectable origin. The same cause has operated among other Democrats in public life, to produce a state of virulent and bitter opposition in the bosom of the party, of which the Democratic masses have very little idea, indeed. There are many gentlemen around us who would profess to feel insulted if asked whether they are. or are not. in opposition at this time?who lose no possi ble opportunity to embarrass the administra tion, where that can be done without fixing upon them ordinary responsibility for their acts, sentiments and opinions (uttered al ways under circumstances wherein it is sup posed that the Democratic party at home can never come to understand their import in their length and breadth,) which would make the hair of the "dear people" stand on end as it were, oould they comprehend the condition of 'The Harmoneous," and the course of many gentlemen with very fair words on their lips for the public ear, to be precisely what they are. Disappointment about office for their immediate strikers, is at the bottom of all this. Under the Polk administration the system was initiated of devoting the pat ronage of the Executive branch of the Govern ment to strengthen gentlemen in public life. Thus, the reoommendation of one such person, ere the close of Mr. Polk's term, became strong enough in all cases to outweigh any and all other backing whatever, for office. Under the Taylor Administration, a check was. is a measure, put to this tendency of things; some appointments-being made in de fiance of the class who were considered almost alone proper to be consulted under that of his predecessor. On the accession of Mr. Fillmore, those Whigs "who failed to obtain the weight in the distribution of Taylors patronage to which they claimed to be entitled.obtained the upper-hand> and exerted themselves until the last hour of Mr. F.'s power, to punish those for whom they believed themselves to have been sacrificed under Taylor. Mr. Fillmore's administration' however, made it a point to be governed and guided by Senatorial recommendations com ing from the Democratic side of the Chamber, almost as implicitly as from Silver Greys.? They ignored all party distinctions with ref erence to Senatorial recommendations; that is. except when they came from friends of Gov Seward, who were one and all taboed. The Pierce administration have evidently aimed to restore matters of this sort to the channel in which they ran long before Polk's time; treating the recommendations of mem bers of either House of Congress (on the Dem ocratic side) as not being entitled to invariable precedence over those of party men outside of the national legislature. As more or less of the members are very anxious to obtain office for particular individuals, some of such gen tlemen, when disappointed, become very indig nant, and essay to punish the patronage dis pensing power to the best of their ability. That is, in a way in which they will not be, ultimately, punishing themselves. We mus do the Democrats of both Houses the justice to say, that the number who are supposed to be urging that the members of the Adminis tration shall sacrifice their views of the fitnegj of things in making appointments? always to those of the member assuming to be most in terested, is small. Nevertheless, the little band is making music here in a quiet way, just now, dictating newspaper attacks on the Pres ident and individual members of the Cabinet in all directions, and spouting what would be called the foulest treason to " the party," wherever that can be done under pretty cer tain assurances that such 41 Democracy" can not be ohalked up against them for reference on settling day at home. For our part, we have seen enough since the first Monday of December last, to satisfy us that the two great parties are completely dis organised?the Whigs over principles, and the Democrats over the spoils. It is rare, indeed, to meet a Democratic member who iu conversation differs from the Administration upon a single measure of importance, except the Nebraska bill; yet by no means so rare to find one unwilling to rate the President and cabinet roundly, always admitting, on being clftsely questioned, that disregard of their rec ommendations for office is at the bottom of the war they are making on them. Doubtless, were the Whigs in power, they, too, would .evince like symptoms of disin tegration of the party, on account of disap pointments with reference to the spoils. The truth is, present parties are melting away. The mass of the politicians of the country have already become office-hunters. They seem inclined to set up nomination for seats in the House and Senate of the United States, as rewards for successful office-hunting in their behalf: marking any member who fails to ob tain place for them, as a doomed wan, what ever may be his character, attainments and capacity for the discharge of his public duties for the advantage of his country. The foun dation of the evil is at home, not here; a there can hardly be a gentleman in either Hous? of Congress, who does not dislike and dread the importunities of the offioe-seekers of his district, worse than any thing else to be thought of. Slight Mistakes.?The Herald is hard put to it indeed, to make out its allegation* against John W. Forney. In that paper of yesterday, among its erroneous items of information from tCashington, the ownership of half the Star is transferred to Mr. F, and he is stated to bi the Star's editor! When will Bennett manage to get people here in his employment, who wi 1 tell his readers the truth ? There was a time when the hands of such persons were seen in his information-from Washington. They made for the Herald the character which it has since lost. In the matter of this bogus information, we have to say that John W. Forney owns no in terest in it whatever, nor has he anything to do with its editorial colamns. The Star is more exclusively conduoted by its ostensible editors than any other paper in the United States wherein as much original matter is published. As for Mr. Forney, he has written nothing for I it; while his pen has time and again graced the columns of the Herald, when a gentleman oould venture to furnish for it the brains and attainments which its conductor lacks, with out experincing a sense of eelf-degradation in so doing. An Expected Veto.?A good deal of excite ment is just now manifested among the politi eians around us, under tho belief that the President will be very apt to veto the insam land bill. Wo are well satisfied that nothing is known authoritatively with reference to th?. President's views concerning this particulai bill. Yet the impression certainly prevail* among the shrewd ones that a veto will coo:e upon it in due time. Its friends may watcL and pray. The Greek Attempt at Revolution.?Though all know that very recently there has been an attempt at revolution a'nong the Greek sub jects of the Porte, nothing has so far beeD published concerning its details. A mercan tile friend of ours in New York, has received three interesting letters from an intelligent commercial correspondent at Patras, present ing an interesting account of what the insur gents have been about in that quarter. Wo are^indebted to his kiudness for the letters in question, and herewith present them to our readers : Patras, March 2, 1854. Despatches received on the 26th ult. from Arta. bring the news that on the 20th a Turk ish vessel, laden with ammunition, arrivod at Salaora, the port of Arta, from Prevera, for the defence of the fortress, and 300 Turks marched down to receive it. Corcealis having been informed of this, hastened to attack them at the head of a handful of men, but on ac count of the smallness of this detachment, he was forced to throw himself into the 4,'onvent of St. Voneranda, and was there besieged by the Turks. Generals Grivas and Tervas hastened to his aid with their troops, surrounded and beseiged tlie Turks in the village of Calicniades, an I after a bloody engagement oa the 22d. 280 Turks remained on ihe field of battle and the Greeks in possession of the ammunition. The English and French Ministers resident at Athens have written to their respective consuls here, that thov entirely disapprove the insurrection of the Epirus, and that the consequences can be of no good to this King dom. On the 24th inst., 220 armed men left this for the camp of the insurgents; all irregular troops. Patras, March 15, 1854. Various skirmishes have taken place, the results of which have been favorable to the Greeks. Tkessaly has also united in the in surrection, and the number of insurgents may bo calculated at 9,000 or more. On the 8th instant, 450 armed men left this place for the camp, headed by Captain Milio Aiiother 1000 from the Morea are expected to pass through here in the course ol the week under the command of Colocotroni and others A body of 300 men are preparing in this place to leave for the camp, who will be commanded by Londo, the ex-minister of justice during the ministry of Mavrocordato. On the 10th another body of 200 men with four small field pieces, also left this place, hav ing marched through the town with colors fly ing and cheered by the people. Enthusiasm and excitement are at their acme, and are now openly manifested, while the menaces of the Western Powers do not abate the fanaticism of the insurgents, nor impede their plans. A body of troops was landed at Prevcsa. which were to advance through Salaora to the dcfence of Arta, but the passes were occupied by General Zavellas at the head of about 2000 men. who had cut trenches. A battle took place between them, the result of which is not yet known. General Grivas, with about 4000 men, having entered Jannina, wa* well received by the in habitants, who oJered him $15,000 to pay his troops and mal itain order, while the Pasha and his garrison were forced to close them selves in the citadel. Three Turkish steamers which took the troops to Prevesa, are in Corfu preparing t< sail to Egypt, to transport more troops into the Epirus. The Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Inlands has issued very severe orders againsl i the exit of people from the Islands in aid ol the insurgents and declares any one who dis obeys his orders outlawed. Patras, March 22. 1854. Since tho 15th instant, the insurrection has daily assumed a more regular and developed fooling. On tne 10th, General Grivas was without Jan nina, at the he.id of only 300 men, the rest being spread here and there. By the treach ery of a Pasha and two Greek spies, who re ported that the Greeks were only in a smail number and unprepared, a body of 1700 troopt and 100 cavalry was sent by the Turks to at tack them. an?i two hours beforo daylight thej had possessed themselves of the ammunition. The fight lasted twelve hours, at the end ol which the Greeks were driven back by the ar tiller}', and their houses and a church was burnt. There remained on the field of battle 2oi) killed and 150 wounded on the part of the Turks, and 40 killed and 60 wounded on thf part of the Greeks. On the 15th instant, another skirmish took place outside Arta. Tavellas, Tervas and Ca nis Kaki having advanced with a strong de tachment. the battle begau, and tho Turks were o iliged to retire into tho fortress of Arti, leav ing 80 killed and many wounded. The loss on the part of the Greeks is stated at 50, be tween killed and woundel. The latest news from tho frontier is that a courier extraordinary had arrivedfrom Anino, bringing the news that fightiiig still continue. near Arta, and that Dever Bey, Achmet Pashn and Miralai, the chief of the artillery, had been killed in Jannina. The insurrection is now as much extended ir Thessaly as el.-ewhere, and various skirmishes hive taken pluce there with results favorable to the insurgents. The Austrian steamer arrived this morning from Lutraski, bringing the following impor tant news: Tho Porto has sent a note to the Greek Gov ernment, requiring that it should recall from tho Epirus all the revolutionary Greek Chiefs who bad left this ki.igdom (after handing in their dismissions from the posts they occupied) should puni-h ihem and dissolve the commit tees, and at the same time prevent the press fr >in publishing libellous statements against Turkey, and that if within 48 hours the Greek Government does not accede to the demands of the Porte, its Ambassador is to demand his pass ports. The Franking Privilege ?It is held in the Post Office Department that the franking priv ilege is not regulated or governed, in any rc spcct, by the mode of conveyance of the mail; that a letter, properly franked, is entitled to be sent free of postage by horse, stage, rail road, steamboat, or auy other mode by which the mail may bo transported. And further, that the franking privilege is a personal one, and travels with the person possessing it. Commodore Newton, the commander of the Home squadron, reached Washington this morning. We take it for granted, therefore, that his ship, the frigate Columbia, has arrived at Norfolk, Virginia, where she was expected csterday morning from Havana More Nebraska Indians Here.?Last even ing Major Kobinaon, agent for the Shawnee* and Delawares, and General Winfield, con nected w?'th the Platte Indian agency, arrived bore with nineteen Delawares and Shawnoes and two interpreters. These sons of the forest oome to Washington to make treaties with the Commissioner of Indian Affairs for the relin quishment of a portion or the whole of their lands in Nebraska and Kansas. They occupy the lands on both sides of the Kansas from its mouth far SO miles up. The Gadsden Treaty.?The usually best in formed persons in Washington concerning su?h matters, are certainly to-day under the im pression that the Gadsden treaty cannot fail to be confirmed.

Ingraham, the defeated Demo cratic candidate for Governor of Connecticut, is in Washington. He is a bluff, hearty ami emphatic looking old gentleman, with all the points of appearance necessary in the making up of a very popular man. As a matter of ;ourse, the newly elected Connecticut Legisla ture will select one of his two opponents. It is understood that the one receiving the leas*, number of popular votes (the Whig candi date) is to be that man. The Temperance and Tsmatic candidate generally, lead- the Whig in the popular contest. The Legislature do right, however, in throwing him aside. ...Thomas Bragg, Esq., of Northampton county, N. C., was nominated yesterday by the Democratic Convention of that State for Governor. He is a brother of Hon. J. Bragg, of Alabama, and of Capt. Braxton Bragg, of a ?'little more grape" memory. Ho is an able man. ....The Rev. J. B. Grinnell, who has been for five years pastor of a Congregational Church in New York, has started for Sugar Grove, Iowa, sixty-five miles west of Iowa city, where ho h?s purchased 8.000 aores of land, for the use of a colony of about thirty families, who are about to take up their residence at that fertile spot. ... .Senor Lorenzo Armeda, Spanish Minis ter to Mexico, was in Boston stopping at the Revere House. ... .The trial of Stevenson, Parker and oth ers, commenced Wednesday morning, at Eas ton. Pa. It is a oasc of conspiracy to extort money from Benjamin Green, an aged citizen. Stevenson pleads guilty to the charge. Con siderable excitement prevails in Easton. the parties being all of the highest respectability, and the defendants are among the wealthiest citizens. .... An acquaintance of ex-Rev. Free-soiler Burr, who knew him when a rabid Wilmot Provisoist, a short time since asked him how he reconciled his present course with the past. To which Chauncey replied, " why you see when a pup is first born, it is several days be fore its eyes are opened eo that the animal can see; when I was a free-soiler I was a blind pup, now I am a full grown dog and can see." He could with propriety have added?and a miserable cur at that. ... .Mr. W. H. Riley, of Boston, a brother in-law of W. R. Goodall, has debuted success fully in Cleveland. .... The Pittsburg Journal says it has re ceived private letters which intimate a doubt whether Judge Pollock will maintain the field as Whig nominee for Governor, as seme strong and conspicuous Whigs are in favor of the Judge withdrawing to leave a free field to David Wilmot to beat Bigler. The Journal seems taken with this idaa vastly. ....We have seen the proof sheets of the "Biographies of Bennett's Washington Car rion Birds'"?the men who collect filth, in this city, for the Herald?in which a perfect da guerreotype of each individual is given. When this publication is given to the public, an ex pose of the manner in which the Herald's pimps endeavor to get news will be seen, that will be perfectly astounding?something here tofore unequalled in the annals of newsgath ering. ... .The Dublin Nation has quite turned upon its old friend John Mitchel. It says : " His brain appears to have been turned, his heart to have grown hopelessly malcontent in exile, and ho see3 the world again only to scofi' and sneer and make it echo with his egotism. Eight numbers of his paper still leave a doubt whether the writer is merely a little insane, or a good deal possessed of a devil." DOINGS IN CONGRESS. Senate.?Yesterday, after an Executive ses sion of some hours, the doors were re-opened, and the Senate adjourned till Monday. In the House, yesterday, at the conclusion of the remarks of Mr. Harris, of Alabama, in favor of the bill to authorize the continuance of the existing mail contract between Mobile and Montgomery, it was further advocated by Messrs. Cobbaud Jones, of Georgia. Mr. Seward moved to lay it on the table; not agreed to. The said joint resolution was then passed. The House then went into Committee on the West Point Academy appropriation bill, (Mr. Jones, of New York, in the chair.) The pend ing amendment, appropriating $20,000 for a Cavalry Exercise (i. e. Riding school) hall, was agreed to?yeas Co, nays 55. The committee also amended the bill by making the compensation of the master of ?'Sword Exercise," (i. e. Fencing Master) $1200 per annum?yeas 69, nays 66. Tho committee then rose, and the amend ments to this bill being agreed to, the said bill as amended, was duly passed. Mr. Hastings (who is about to leave Wash ington for a season) asked, and obtained leave to have his undelivered speech on the Nebras ka bill inserted in tho Congressional proceed ings. The House then adjourned. PROCEEDINGS OF TO-DAY. House.?To-day, after the reading of the journal? The Senate bill to recompense the discovery of practical anasthesia, was read twice. Mr. Hamilton movod its reterence to the Committee on Claims. Mr. Bissel suggested its reference to the Committee on Miti.ary Affairs. Mr. Letcher protesred against its reference to the Committee on Claims, that not being the appropriate committee for its consideration. Mr. Edgerton also opposed that referenoe. Mr. Bissell urged its reference to the Com mittee on Military Affairs. Mr. Hamilton again addressed the House in favor of its reference to the Committee on Claims, and demanded the previous question. Mr. Jones, of Tennessee, moved to lay the bill on the table, which was agreed to?yeas 82, nays 46. A Senate bill for the relief of Jeffers and and J. W. Smith, was then referred to the Post Office Committee, on being read twice. Mr. McDougall reported from the Post Office Committee a bill to provide a weekly mail be tween tho Atlantic States and San Francisco. The said bill having been read twice, was read at length for the information of the Hou3e. Mr. McDougall addressed the House in ex planation of his bill, and moved its postpone ment until the first Monday in Jane. Mr.Upbam reported back from the same committee, the Senate bill for the relief of Ira Ody, referred to the Committee of the Whole on the State of the Union. FURTHER BY THE ASIA. Yesterday we gave, by telegraph, a } ynopsis of the foreign news by the Asia. To-day we give more interesting de ails : THE WA*. The particulars of the capture of Do- ' >ruda8ha are given by the Vienna papers. J Chey state that the Turkish fortresses of 1 tlatschin, Isaktsha. and Hirsowa were j aken by the Russians on the 28th ult., ifter a seige of three days, by a vastly , juperior force. The operations against , Slatschin and Isaktscha were conducted inder the orders of General Schilder, the lead of the engineer corps of the Russian ' ictive army. The troops engaged at the iret named fort were under the orders of General Kotzebue, adjutant-general on Prince GortchakofTs staff; and those employed at Isaktsha, under General Aurep, formerly commanding the advan ced guard in Little Wallachia. On the same day, the detached corps, under 3eneral UschakofF, which had advanced from Tultscha, took the small fort of Babadagh and Ilirsowa at Kasimtschi, where the space between the Black Sea ind the Danube contracts, and so cut off the communications of the Turks as they retired to Trajan's wall. The Paris correspondence of the Lon don Times, writing under date of April Bih,says: Despatches were received to-day at the Turkish Embassy, from Vienna, confirm ing what was said yesterday about the defeat of the Russian General Uschakoff, and the retreat of the corps on Bessara bia. It is also stated that the forts said to have been captured are still in the hands of the Turks; that the Turks have crossed the Danube at a point between Nicopolis and Rusthhuk; that 20,000 Turks are on their way to Trajan's wall or Rassava, and 25,000 for the same direction from Shumla. All these movements were spoken of yesterday and the day before, and they are again announced to-day. Reports are also rife about advantages" near Kalafat. But all these have to be confirmed offi cially. The Patrie states that the account of an advantage having been gained by the Turks on the Lower Danube ap peared to be confirmed. - "It is positive," says that journal, "that the Generol-in chief of the Russian army, after the passage of the troops into Dobrudacha, considered his position so critical that he immediately demanded reinforcements from Bessarabia, Odessa, and even Se vastopol. FRANCE Paris, April 6.?The legislative body had submitted to it to-day a bill increas ing to 140,000 men, instead of SO,000, the number of recruits of the'class 1853. The Moniteur of to-day says: "A report has been circulated that the government is about to make a fresh levy of 100,000 men. This statement is not exact.? What is true is, that the government is to present to-day to the legislative body a bill to augment the contingent for the service of 1853 by 60,000 men." Prince Napoleon sets out on the 9th for the army of the East. He will arrive on the 10th at Lyons, on the 11th at Valence, on the 12th at Avignon, on the 13th at Marseilles, and the morning of the 14th at Toulon. The Moniteur announces, that the Aus trian ambassador presented yesterday an autograph letter from the Emperor of Austria to the Emperor Napoleon. TURKEY AND GREICS. The Vienna papers publish advices from Constantinople of the 27 th ult., according to which the Porte has resolved to expel all the subjects of King Otho from the Sultan's dominions. A declaration of war w is expected to accompany the exe cution of this measure. The Turks have in Thessaly and Epirus a force of 15,000 men, of whom 3,000 are cavalry, with 120 guns. As soon as the roads arc prac ticable this corps will be reinforced, and the insurrection, it is expected, will be attacked in its centre and home, which is Greece. Arta, the fall of which has so many time been reported from Athens, has a garrison of 3,000 men. Sir Henry Ward, Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands, has visited Fuad Effendi at Pre vasa. From Athens, it is announced that the ministers Christides and Paikos have resigned. The fall of Suli, reported from Athens, is not confirmed by direct advices from Prevasa, though they are seven days later. PRUSSIA AND AUSTRIA. It is stated by a gentleman arrived from Berlin, that on the 29th ult. an im portant demonstration of public feeling against Russia was made in that city.? Numerous bands marched in procession through several streets, bearing flags with inscriptions in favor of Turkey, France and England, and crying, "Long live the allied powers!" The procession was attacked by the police, who dragged the banners in the mud, and made several arrests. Vienna, April 1.?The Archduke A1 bert has left Vienna for Semlin, as Com mander-in-chief of the army of observa tion on the Turkish frontier. The army on the frontier, including the inhabitants who perform a permanent service, is not less than 120,000 to 150,000 men.? Stores are being collected on a large scale. Negotiations have been going on between the Treasury and the Bank for an ad vance on the security of the state domains, and the Bank has just declined the pro posals. 8PAIN. Forty thousand artisans filled the streets of Barcolona on the 13th. Thev were unarmed, and when summoned to disperse they refused. They then turned their steps towards the Garcia suburb, in order to join their comrades outside the walls.

DrBLiN, April 0.?Our agricultural re ports never were more satisfactory at this season, the most cheering accounts of the progress of farming work coming to us from every quarter of the country. Wheat is the great crop, and the quantity sown by far exceeds that of last year. New potatoes were yesterday cried for sale through the streets. Notwithstanding thecheering prospects of the country, however, emigration pro ceeds with even increased earnestness. Large sums in the shape of remittances from friends in America are received by al most every mail, and it is said that in one small locality in the county of Kerry, 250 letters, most of them containing money ^orders, were received from America last week. The Limerick Chronicle says:?"Our quays are crowded by emigrants who have secured passages to Quebec and New York in the vessels announced to sail from this port; and by railway hun dreds proceed daily to take shipping at Liverpool."
