where a severe war is still earned on. I ho r rench
army in that provinco nf Franco, if it can be called
such, is very great, every Frenchman ii nlivc to tho
glory of Frincc ; the nrcounts of tho actions, and
movements of tho army nro given at length in llio
French journals. The now French ministry ap
pears to bo popular. Tho news that tho U. States
government had accepted the mediation of England,
had readied France and given general satisfaction.
From Poi.ami, the news is of much importance.
Il appears that the troops of the Three Protecting
Powers had taken possession ol urncovv, and tbo
adjoining provinces, no doubt to keep down the lib
eral spirit of the Pules.

The Paris Journals of Friday have arrived by
the ordinary post. The afternoon edition ofGalig
nani gives a copy of the message of tho President
of tho United Stales to Congress, declaring that ho
has accepted tho mediation of tho Rritish Govern
ment in the ufiiiirof tho indemnity. Tho point of
.honor lo which tho President alludes, as having
been by him carefully guarded, no doubt refers to
tho retraction demanded nf him by the French go
vernment, of tho menaces which Iim was supposed
to have uttered against that country a retraction,
which, in his opening message to Congress, ho
cleat ly showed ho oughl not to ho called upon lo
in'ikc, inasmuch as he had never intended, in tho
language, complained of, any threat at all. The
expressions which the President uses in speaking
of the conduct of our government upon this occa
sion, will tend strongly to ccmf.nl the friendly re
lations which havo happily subsisted, without
interruption!. r twenty ycarB between Great Rritain
