THE DAILY DISPATCH.
rar TO ADVEKTlMlißS.—TtarctroulsUoo of toe Dispatch is thrk* timks aslarse aatbat of any other Daily paper in the City of Richmond It U therefore greatly superior to any other a» » niHilum of advertising RICHMOND, VA.t Tbnr«df»y Morning, November THE NEW FRENCH EMM RE. The act is at length consummated—as Go vernor Morris said, when the Bouibons were restored, the "long agony is over—France re poses in the arms," if not of her legitimate, at Irast of her chosen sovereign. She has repu diated. and apparently, forever, the Bourbon family—that family which had ridden hei like an incunas for two hundred years previous to J7B9—that family which she then tried to get rid of, but which all Europe combined to fss KB upon b«r, England, whose legititttAle sovereign was then alive, and a monk in an Italian convent, lending the w ay under the gui dance of a monarch, who, according to the principle on which she then professed to act, was a usurper. Napoleon 111. may be a very bad man—he may be a tvrnnt and an usurper—he may be all that the New Vork Tribune has chosen to call him —but as the representative of a great ptiuciple—a principle sacred in the eyes of all wen who believe that the rights of man aia something more than a dream the principle of the right ofevery nation to choose its own rulers—he is entitled to the respect of eveiy republican. It was the attempt of the armed tyrants of the European world to stifle this growing belief in France, sixty years ago, that gave rise to all the bloodshed and devastatior, which has been so eloquently depicted by their Minions and which they afterwards had the address to fasten upon trance herself. Let us look at the facts. France, groining under the miseries inflicted by the feudal ty ranny of a thousand years, about the year 1789 was reduced to bankruptcy. Thete was no possibility of relieving In r, except by assf ta bling the Third Estate, that is, a representa tion of the people. Temporising ministers and quack financiers had tried all their arts in Tain ; the disease, driven temporarily from the surface, fixed only the more firmly upon the vitals of the State, and of society. Couipalled by necessity, Louis X\ I assembled that body, which afterwards, under another nam#, wrenched the sceptre from his grasp. The nation had hitherto been nothing, and the King everything. The nation was determined to be something,in future.and the King was,for a long lirae, resolved to be everything still. Thence was the origin of all the misfortunes of that unhappy monarch. The times were no longer as they had been, when, in the reign of iiis grand-father, during what Blackstone calls the saild administration of Cardinal Fleury, 54,000 persons were confined upon Ictlret de cachet, seized, that istosny, by the officers of justice without having the o'lencea with which thov were charged announced to them—torn fro* their families, or arrested without their know ledge—hurried away to some of the hun dred Bastiles with which the land ahound»d— plunged hundreds of feet below the aurfaee of the esrtb, there to expiate the crime of having ©ffended the mistress of some great man, or of having proved too faithful guardiaa* of their wives'or daughters' honor. The King could ao longer atab a faithful Minister to the heart, without exposing himself to censure—the Lord eould no longer reduce the daughter of his wnant to a state, worse than death, without being responsible to public opinion. The time for all these things had passed, never to re turn. The people determined not to leave the thunder bolt in the hands of the feudal Jove, trusting to his magnanimity not to use it.— They heard of the treaty of Pilmitz, by which Austria, Prussia, and other German Stahs, sgreed to partition France. Hitherto, the King, though in their power, had been in no pergonal danger; from that moment, believing :hit he instigated these proceedings, a stricter watch was kept over him. The Prussians in vaded the French territory. The Duke of Brunswick issned that memorable manifesto, in which he threatened to punish, as traitors, all who dared to resist him, in defancs of their •wn country. The King attempted to escape, and, of course, his name was connected with the invasion. The moat terrible excitement prevailed in Paris. Tens of thousands of re cruits swarmed along all tbe highways, march iag against the foreigner. The people became mad with fear and excitement. They wero threatened with foreign subjugation—thsir frontiers bristled with foreign bayonets—they ware ofered, in a public manifesto, the alter native of returning to alavery, or of having their fields laid waate, their cities sacked and feurn»d, themselves executed if they attempted to defend their country —that country itself being, at the same time, devoted to partition among the conquerors. What were the French to do? To sabtnlt to these insolent foreigners? They did uot think so. They answered their tureaia and inaults, by masaacreing all the Royalist prisoners, by guillotining the Kin", by driving their armies, like hunted dee*, across their territories. What elae could have been expected? How could the Prussian Ge neral have expected anything else, when h* issned that infamous manifesto , a production, which makes the blood of every freeman, who reads it, boil in his veins, even at this distanc# of t.me, and although he be no Frenchman.— What must have been its effect, then, on Paris at that time, when the writer was actually ad' vancmg upon it, within little more than ono haadred miles, at the head of 80,000 veterans, »'ne troopa of the great Frederick, soon to be followed by 200,000 more, when there wa» nothing between him and the Capital, but a mt-re handful of undisciplined recruits? Nothing can demonstrate more clearly the art with which the English oligarchial pres. has contrived to turn every thing , fa j 8 „ |h , French, than the sort of halo they h* V e man ■god to throw around the character of this Htm Duke of Brunswick. Because he found that those whom he wished lo tread upoa as worms, turned out to be asps—because they would lot submit to let him and bis employees preaeribe a government for them—bees use, ia- MM4 of jialding, as be had supposed they would, Ibey turned upon him and beat him out of tbe fold—because io just retribution for bis atrocious invasion of their territory, preceded by a proclamation of fir* aad sword, thsy a 1 afterwards invaded his and utterly destroyed his and the Prussian forces, he has been described as a martyr t The wrongs of Prussia and the Duke of Hrunstcick, are themes of declama tion lor every English writer who has under taken to describe the war of ISO 6. Who began the business? Who invaded France, pro alaiming death to nil who offered resistance? These same Prussians, commanded by this same Duke of Brunswick. They did it for no offcnce committed by the Fiench people to wards them. They did it because the French, n nation of twenty-five millions, thought pro per to change their government. Had they let France alone, the Republic might never nave been —Louis might never have ascended the scaffold—Bonaparte might have lived and died a sous-lieutenant in the regiment of La Fere. To them and to England, the latter of which countries had always been ridiculing tiunce for her submission to the despotism of the Bourbons, are all the subsequent glory and misfortunes of the Republic and Empire due. From the first, these courts sought to force uponfFrance a government which she did not want. The pretence of England at firs?, that she warred against the principles of the Jaco bins, was a miserable subteifuge. It was ex posed completely after the First Consul's Id ler to the King of England and the answer of the English Foreign Secretary. In the latter it is avowed, in terms so plain, as to leave no doubt of their meaning, that there can be no peace until the Bourbons are restored —that is, until France shall consent to undo all 'hat it has cost her one million of lives to do! Vet the First Consul had completely put down Ja cobinism, the enemy age.inst which it suited the purpose of Pitt to declare that he was fight ing. A similar application made by the Em peror was rejected 011 similar grounds. No thing would suit free and enlightened England, but the imposition of the Bourbons, by force, upon Fiance. She succeeded at last. After having bought up all the continental powers repeatedly to war upon Napoleon, and after having been as often bafflod. the snows of Russia did for her what neither her own army nor those of her allies could effect. She suc ceeded in dethroning the man whom all France preferred, and in shutting him up in a distant tropical island, where she hoped and knew it would be impossible for him long to survive. She set upon the throne, by the aid of 1,500,000 continental bayonets, the family whom France detested. In fifteen yeata they were drireu awav. and now, in twenty-two more, the re presentative of that very man whom it cost three millions of lives to dethrone—the head of that very family whom it was a cardinal point with the allies to banish forever from Fra nee, is, by the loud acclamations of forty millions of Frenchmen, " Emperor of the French!" Never did any people show a more resolute determination to choose'their own ru lers, and though they may not be Republicans, yet we honor wherevr-r we find it, that stub born spirit of nationality which prefers a bad government of its own choosing, to the best that the wit of man ever devised, accompanied with the alloy of foreign dictation. CUBA AND THE ADMINISTRATION OF MR. POLK. The House of Representatives, at its lust session, called for it,formation relative to the policy of the government in regard to the Island of Cuba, and the President, in teply, on Ihe 13th of July last, transmitted a number of pa pers, beginning with the letter of Mr. Forsyth, then Minister to Spain, to Mr. Adams, (at that time Secretary of State,) dated Nov. 20, 1822, and ending with the instructions of Mr. Bu chanan to Mr. Saunders, in 1848, and the •ral replies of the latter. These papers hive just been printed, and we find those last men tioned in the National Intelligencer of the 23d inst. As the instructions are of great interest at the present time, we subjoin a short analy sis of their contents. The Secretary of State begins by calling the attention of the Minister to the present condi tion and future prospects of Cuba; premising that the government, bound to Spain by an cient friendship,and having nothing to fear from her, is content that it shall remain in her hands, butdeclaring that it will never permit it to pass into the possession of any other European power, least of all, Great Britain, who might use it to the ruin of our comnieice, foreign and domestic, and even to the danger of the Union. He sets forth, in strong colors, the necessity of providing for our own safeiy, which would be in a very precarious condition, were, tSis island in the possession of England, inasmuch as ahe would thereby be enabled, in time of war, to paralyze the industiy of the entire Mississippi valley, by closing the Gulf and blockading the mouth cflhe river, and destroy the commerce between the Atlantic ports and the Gulf, even then large, but doit of inestima ble value. He is induced to believe that Great Britain desires to get possession of Cuba, from a knowledge of the well known policy she has always pursued, of seizing on every valuable commercial point throughout the world, when ever she has hnd the power to do so—frotu the fact, that there is no point so valuable, in this respect, as Cuba—from the circumstance, that the United States is her greatest commercial rival, and that with Cuba in her possession she could easily arrest her commerce—and from the well understood truth, that were it once in our possession, from its extent, fertility, and the energy of our people, it would soon be able to supply the markets of the world with tropi ca! productions at a cheaper rate than she can afford them, thereby .putting the finishing stroke to the value of her West India Islands, lakmg another view of the question, the Sec retary maintains that if Cuba were in our nos session, we should be relieved from all apt,re henaioDs for the security of our commerce, and nnght, by fortifying the Torlugas, bein* , n Fosse.s.on of Havana, entirely comma.d the Under a aecond head, he estimate. ,be value oHbe present productiveness of Cuba «0,l contrasts ,t wi.h what it might be under the >•«»»••» of*e United S«.« M . McUre.or. .- 1830 eat, m .,ed the aurface of Cub. at 468,- *<3 caballeras, of 32 acrea each ; that ia to Jjg about 15,000,000 of acres. Of ,hi. only «h.Ueraa, or about 1,525,000 acre. wer« under cultivation in sugar, coffee, tobac' co, garden production, and fruit, and 9,374 ea ball era., or about 300,000 acre., in gram* ground, and unfilled wood, belonging to sugar tad coffee plantations. I a 1840, the same au thor estimated the land in use, as above, at 1,728,000 acres, less than one-eighth of the whole, leaving still 13,000,000 perfectly wild, though as good as any in cultivation. Though the island ia demonstrably, from these data, capable of supporting a population of 10,000,- 000, its inhabitants did not, in 18-11, exceed 1,000,000, and the larger number of these weie slaves. The Secretary impresses it upon Mr. Saun ders, that there is no wish to acquire Cuba ex cept with the consent of Spain. At the same time he suy», information has been received from the American Consul, that the Creoles are very hosti'e to the Spanish Governme nt, that efforts are on foot to raise money for a revolt, in the United State*, and that attempts would be made to enlist in their cause, the vol unteer regiments just disbanded in Mexico.— The President disapproved of all this, how av er, and had ordered the volunteers to be trans ported directly home, without touching a t Cu ba. The whole revenues of the island, accord ing to Hunt's Merchants' Magazine, amount ed, in 1814, to $10,500 000, of which Mr. Cal deion says, that tot more than $2,000,000 ever •each the Treasury, the rest being spent in supporting the government of Cuba. The re venue to the United States, the Secretary thinks, would be no'less than $0,000,000 the first year, with on indefinite prospective in. crease. He discusses and dismisses, as un founded, the apprehension, that the extension of our possessions is dangerous to the Union, andiauthorises the Minister to give $100,000,- 000 for the island as the maximum. He cau tions him to approach the subject with great delicacy—to introduce it by alluding to the threats of Lord I'alinerston in connection with the English bond holders—to say that the United States felt great apprehensions with re gard to Great Britain's getting possession o! the island, See. As Spain was always under the impression, that in the event of a war with England, the United States would assist her, to prevent Cuba from falling into English hands, the minister was instructed to say that our government was exceedingly embarrassed upon that point—that England as well as Spa in was an ally—and that Uncommercial relations with her were such as to render it inevitable that any war with her, however it might ter minate, must bear heavily upon the people of this country. To avoid both of these alterna tives—war with England or her possession of Cuba—the Ambassador w as to make his pr»- posal. The example of Louisiana, bought from Napoleon when in the zenith of his pow er, was to be held up as a $aho to Spanish pride, and the treaty of that putchase was to form the basis of this, the ,7th and Bth articles being except d, unless the Spaniards should very particularly insist on their insertion. Great secresyjs enjoined, lest the matter get abroad, and afford a handle to the opposition iu th# Cortez. The several replies of Mr. Saundsra it is not worth wliiie to analyze. lie obeyed his instructions to the Setter, and after soase temporising, received a flat refusal, the Spa nish Minister declaring that the people of Spain were all opposed to it so bitterly, that they would prefer seeing the island sunk in the sea, to seeing it transferred to any Power on earth. In the course of their several conversations, the minister stated that the re venue received in Madrid from Cuba, was $ii,000,0110 instead ol 2,000,000 as Mr. Calderon had itated. Mr. Saunders states that the foreign debt of Sf ain is $100,000,000, and her domes tic debt $300,000,000, and that she supports at home, an army of 150,000 men, in Cuba one of 20,000, and distributes among the colonies another of 15,000. This indebtedness, and the cost of such a force, induced him to hope that Spain might be led by her financial difficul ties, to accept his offer; but things had gotten to such a pitch that all thought of paying prin cipal or interest had long been abandoned— The English were pressing heavily while the negotiations were going on. One great stum bling block in the v ay, Mr. Saunders thought was the Queen Mother, a greedy, avaracious old woman, who derived a considerable income from Cuba, being a large shareholder in gas stocks and other companies. He proposes to buy her out. The National Intelligencer of Wednesday continues the publication of the papers allud ed to above, commencing with Mr. Forsyth's letter to Mr. Adams. Circuit Court of Petersburg.—Tlie Express gives a detailed account of the session of Tuesday. The case of Cornelius Hollo way, churged with feloniously killing a free negro named J. Richardson, was then called, but in consequence of the absence of an im portant witness, was postponed until yester day. The grand jury catne into court and through their foreman stated, that they had found a true bill of indictment against Lewis Montague, for shooting with a pistol, CJardi der G. Thompson, on Thmsday, the June last. The prisoner was then placed at the bar. Subsequently a message was receiv ed from the Grand Jury, to the effect that Mr. Marcellus P. Bell, who had been snmmoned to appear before them, had refused to do so.— An officer brought in the witness, who persist ed in refusing to be sworn or testify relative to the case, and he was finally placed in the custody of the sheriff and committed to pri son. , At half past three the court again met, and the prisoner wan put to the bar tor trial. He was then requested to stand up while the clerk read to him the bill of indictment which had beeniound by the Grand Jury, and to the question, are you guilty or not guilty of the crime with which you are churged,—he replied in a loud and audible tone, "not guilty." O.i motion of the prisoner's counsel, the further trial of the case was postponed until 10 o'- clock Thursday, the 25th instant, by which time McCarthy, a very important witness for the prisoner, who is now out of the State, will be present.

The Stabbing Case.—The continued case of Frederick Belvin, charged with stabbing Lafiyette Batier on Sunday afternoon last, at tbe boarding h iuse of Mrs Sheppard's, corner of Franklin acd G jvernor streets, cam* up before the Mayor yes terday morning. The examination was com menced with the testimony of Lafayette Butler — lie deposed substantially as follows: On Sunday evening last, about 3 o'clock, a gen tleman named Williams, called at the house where I board, Mrs Sheppard's, and arked me to go up to a room which he had formerly occupied, acd where were soma clothes which he wish ;d to take to the Co umbinn Hotel. He t;ien fixed up a bun dle which he said he would call in thl evening and obtain, as h- did not w.sh to carry it iu the day.— Bjlvin was lying or a bed in tin room intoxicated. He had been out Sa urday even'ng drinking, and csroe haise Sundfy morning under the influence of liquor. B"lviu said something to Williams about his going off, and I told Williams, who asked me what was the matter, that it was not worih while to mind Bolvin, as he was tight. Belvin heard me, 1 suppose, lor he got up, cstr.e to the door and .aid to me before I came down stairs, " 1 will I see you out in that." I replied, that I would talk to him when he was sober, and that we could set tle tbesHair then if necessary. He then went back into his room, and 1 went dowu Hairs. I was talk ing near the landing at the second pair of stairs b«- low with Mr Williams and a Mr Reed, when I Si,w Selvin coming down stairs towards me. He had a pistol in his lett hand, pointed at me, and a bowio knife in his right hand. I ran up the steps (a ois -1 tance described to be abaut ten feet) caught hold ef the pistol and threw it up. Just as I threw it up it went off, and I was knocked back, and fell kd'.C way down the stairs before I stopped myself. Was pattly stunned. I then went into the parlor and Belvin went back «p stairs again. By the Mayor.—When I took hold ol the pistol he had his finger oa the trigger. Do not kntio whe ther the discharge teas otcatiorudby Bsizin'ipulling the trtgger, or by my knotkiug up hU «r»» and the pittol. 'i here was a smilo or grim upon his coun tensase when he held the pistol tawards ue. He said at ail. I do not thiuk I received aay btab- i think the wound on my arm was occasion ed bytkfcbail. tehould judge it was tka ball that cut my arm, from the position of the pistol and of the would, and also of the hole iu the tioor, mace by the buliet. My arm was upraised that received tha wound. I did not see Belvin use th« knife He might have used the knife without my seeing him. There is ouiy one rent in my eoat about tiireo in ches iu length. Saturday night Belvin had been drinking ; atjd he weat out about 12 o'clock, and did not return until Sunday morning about eleven o'clock. I had run up the pair of steps about one third of their length, when 1 grabbed the pi.tol.— There is no sign of a singe upun the coat, or as if burnt with powder. The pistol was in both ol our hands when it went off. I had hold of the pistol with my lett hand and Belvin had hold of the butt end. Do not know whether the struggle occasion ed it to go off or not. When 1 fell I had the pistol in my hand. Rail up because I have been taught fiom inlancy always to face danger and not run from it. Dr. Little was called at.d examined. This wound is a clean cut with a knife. The coal was torn but not burnt. It would be impossible for a pistil to be placed thus near to a man's shoulder and tired off, sua not burr, the coat or scorch it. I think the hole in the coat was torn by the hiit of the knife. Th: kaifj thrust forward with sufficient force in a direction to have made this wound by the pressure oj the guard upon the coat. Thsre was not a ptrtic'e of wadding in the wound. Cross-Kzamintd.—The t"ar in the coat might have been produced by a bullet, but the wound on the arm is certainly a knife cut. It was a slight wound, two inches long aud abo*t half an inch deep ; made as if the arm had besn ia an uplifted position when given. The hols in the co it is right over the wound. Officer Tyler stated that officer Truehcart and himself, on hearing ofihe difficulty, proceeded te arrest Belvin. He (Tylei) found ;Beiviu locked up ju his room, and the case of the bowie knife lying on the bed near him. Mr. T. proceeded: I asked Beivin where the knife was ; he said he knew nosh ing about it. He appeared to be very much ex cited and trembled a ! over. I asked him what he had been doing. He replied that he had not thct Butler, that he fired the pistol over Butler's shoul der, and that he then etabbed Butltr. I told him as be had said so much he had better get tha knife ; and he then weut to his chest and got the knife out. Belvin further said, that he had beei vrged to do it. He apologized for having such weapons, aifd stiJ that he would not have been soer; with tnese, if he hRd not purchased them expressly for this man Butler. The point of the kmfo looked as if it had been used and washed iff. Consider that the wound was a knife cut The Mayor here enquired of Dr. Little, what was ihe particular character of the wound, and Dr. Little replied it was acut. Lafayette Butler recalled— Bv.lviu hud slipped when 1 ran up to him, ard was leaning forward with a pistol ia his left hand, pointed at me. I could have ran along tbe passage, or into the parior, if .1 had chosen. Would not do it. Have never had any personal difficulty wiifa this man before. He had a difficulty with another men, and believed 1 had something to do with it, which made him distant for some tiuae. Last Easter Monday he came to me and requested that the matter should drop. Have spoken to him twe or three times since, when necessity required it, at the table. Otherwise, he has not said enything to * - J'jhu K. "Keea apposed—l was in the parlor the afternoon of the difficulty, when Mr. Butler end Mr. Wiliiams came in out of Belvia's room, and spoke of B's being in his room somewhat tight. I heard Be)vin coming down stairs and saw Butler run up towards him. Heard the discharge of the pistol, but did not see the weapons used. Otiicer Trueheart corroborated Mr. Tyler's state ment eoncerning the arrest. Mr. Williams, the other witness for the commonwealth was absent, but will be examined on Saturday. The Mayor committed Belvin to jail to await ex amination before a called Court of Hustings, to be held tn the Ist of Docembir next. He refused to adu.it Bulviu to bail. Runxiko.—Two negroes, one named Elisha Scott, slave to the Richmond and Danville Kailrcad Company, and the other named Abraham Bakt r, slave to N. VV.

As it was uninha bited, and the fire broke out in thu upper story, be tween the lathing aud the roof, there can be no doubt that it was fimd by au incendiary.
