"Should Napoleon 111 unexpectedly begin to popularise hia ayatem of government, Auatrla aad the despotic State* had better look to their arm*; for it will be a sign that the **eacious ruler of France aeea a European struggle impending, and baa reaolved to eapouie the popular aide" Germany, too, I* troubled, and the able writer in BUckw-iod thinks "will probably be into the furnace" aooner than most people imagioe. "Der. titute of the mad impulae* of the South, le*» de monstrative even than the French, the Germana do not give tongue much before they act; bnt there are symptom* that the tranquility of Central En rope is anything but secure. The Germana are a slow-moving race, and if they had even a promise of better things coming, they would wait on, smo king their pipe* and drinking their beer, with true Teutonic phlegm, for'another generation. But at present they have not even a promise of better things—the nobility, worse than the throne, seem only bent upon pushing thing* backward* toward* feudalism; and the consequence to, that were revo* lution to commence in serioni form, either at Pari* or in ItaljL Germany would apeedily catch the flame.

England would then soon see wheth er the I'nited States sympathizes with depot ism or not. Especially would our people hail with tu multuous joy a grand German and Italian revolu tion, enlightened by the sad experience of 1848. These Germans, as a fervid English writer says> are our brothers; these Italians are asbrave as the old Romans, and give them but a fair field, wil' •rush their oppressors as by a thunderbolt. For ourselves we do not expect to see Republicanism established in Europe. The people are not prepar ed fer it." But free, constitutional government— monarchical, and strong but limited—they are rea dy to have; and this will pave the way for still free er forms But when will the struggle come? When twill the first gun be fired? Not, we fear, Napoleon is gathered to his fathers.« British America. * According to an article in the Baltimore Ameri in the British Empire in North America em- Wces a tract of laud scarcely less than that Wd by the United States, the difference in W of the latter hardly exceeding twe hundred usand square milea. The progress of popula land settlement U very rapid. There are six tinces, all separate, lying north of ns, compri se two Cauadas.Nova Scotia, Newfoundland. \e Edward's Island and New Brunswick.— Island of Cape Jlteton is a dependency of No fctia. Iu the year 1851 the population of the pees was 2,377,000, and that in the Hudson's 'pmpany's territory 180,000. At the present Ve population of the Canadas, each largely a million of inhabitants, the most wester •y of the two increasing the fastest. Their growth ft course, is far exceeded by that of tbe United / tates, but it appears to be on the Increase and is bee jmestili more rapid. And the filling /up of the provinces must eventually lead to the /organization dvilized settlements in the vast j wilderness included in the dominions of the Pur Company. This vast expanse is divided into the provisions of Labrador, Rupert's River, Abbitibbe, Moose, Albany, Severn, Rainy Lake, Swan River, Cum berland, Norway, Island, York, Churcbiii, Great "Klave Lake, Attiabsca, Mackenzie River, Suskat cbawan, Peace River, New Georgia, English Riv er, Lesser Slave Lake, and Cumberland. In the Province of Red River there i.i a civilized settle ment of about six thousand souls, called Aasine boine, being part of Lord Selkirk's colony. On Vancouver's Island there is another civilized settle ment of about fifteen hundred persons. This is said to be all that has yet been done in the way of a permanent occupation by the British race, but the Uudson's Uay Company has its trading posts And stations in every province. A contemporary observes that the six populous provinces may in the next thirty years increase to two or three dozen, stretching along the whole northern frontier of the United States, and offer ing at any point on the border ample opportuni ties fur British invasion in case of war. But the increase of the United States is still more rapid, •o that there is no ground for apprehension of dan- I ger on that score. Should the provinces separate t from England, there will be a new and powerful i Anglo American confederacy. UaMii.>Bebast«p«l. Ti.e Paris correspondent of the N. Y. Journal of Commerce states that Russia ia engaged in revi ving her industry, commerce and finance, and thus prepares to regain the ascendant lost in the late Oriental war. He adds that interpreting, to suit herself, the articles of the Treaty of Peace, Rus sia reconstruct* the interior fortification* of Sebasto pol. Except the destruction of the Russian fleet in the Black Sea, which can be rebuilt la a year, the allies have gained nothing by the Eastern War. Towards Austria great coolness still exists in Cassia, and Prussia does nothing to promote more cordial relations between these two countries. Air. Ureoka. It U to be presumed that Mr. Brooks will be unanimously reelected to Congress. His constitu ents will honor in tbu« honoring their representative.

We are no advocates of a resort to brute force. We hold that every man ought to be allowed to •peak his sentiments on all subjects freely, ao long as he does not assail private character. We go farther, and say that an assault upon a quiet and Inoffensive man, on account of his supposed timidi ty of character, is no evidence of chivalry or prowess But the speech of Mr. Sumner was a groaa and bitter peraonal attack upon a venerable relative of Mr Brooks, and it waa understood that Mr. Sumner held himself in readiness to resist any aaaaalt made upon him for words spoken in Sach, at any rate, was the understanding la Wash ington. Now, has not enough and more than enough been done to avenge a few blows with a futta percha canet What are we to think of the imblle sentiment which magnifies an •'«»»% that would not have disabled aa oM * unpardonable crime, and takea no account of of defamation wbkh. opened upon Mr. Brooks from the Northern' and rostrum!

He wa* found guilty, and ordered to be puniahed. Laid Over —The case against Newman E Hoik for assaulting Benjamin Burges* with a handapike, was called yesterday and continued by the Mayor until Monday next. Female Row —Hannah Bird, a free woman, was J>rought before the Mayor yesterday, to answer the charge of assaulting and beating Virginia Bird, and threatening ber with farther violence. The evidence austaiaed the charge, and the accused waa thereupon 6rtiered a dressing. Mired Breed —Alexander Barley, a mixed breed of Indian and white, made hia appearance before the Mayor yesterday, to answer the charge of aa sanlting and beating, and threatening to assault and beat Jacob Peyser, on the 15th Inst Barley is an ice cart driver, and beat Peyser's negro girl, which led to the difficulty. Continued till Friday, for wit nesses on both sides. Fighting.—Mary, slave to John W. Ballington, and Levinia, slave to Mr. Harrold, were brought before the Mayor yesterday, to answer the charge of being engaged in a fight in Messrs. Harrold &. Murray's yart. Levitfta was ordered a striped dress, and Mary discharged. Shooting.—The trial of Hector Davis for shoot • ing at James B. Hargrove in Wall street on the 4th January last, was commenced before the Hus tings Court yesterday, but the jury being unable to agree upon a verdict, was adjourned until this morning. Indecent Conduct.— Cornelius Karr appeared be fore the Mayor yesterday, to answer the charge of being drunk and disorderly the night before, and trespassing on Mrs. Meeks After hearing the evi dence, the accused was held to bail for his good be havior. Held to Bail.—David H. Puckett waa held to bail in the sum of $200, yesterday, before Justice Net tles, on complaint of Geo. Walden, who feared a breach of the peace Early Contracts for Hogs—During the last two weeks, says the Cincinnati Price Current, of the Uth, we have heard of several contracts for bogs, fur November delivery, and there is no doubt that a good deal is doing in this way, but the particulars have been kept as private as possi ble. The highest rate paid, that we beard of, waa 95 75, but it was rumored th«t as high as six dol lars bad been paid for a lot to be delivered by the 10th of November, and to average 210 lbs. Death or a Virginia Lady at Paris —We find the following paragraph in the Paris corre spondence Of tbe lioston Atlas: I regret to record the death of Mrs L M. Child in this city. She was a native of Virginia and the member of one of tbe families of that Common wealth which was illustrious alike on the field, in the Council and the Senate, for she was a daugh ter of General Lee. Talents were hereditary in the family; her brother who died here a good many years ago, is the author of a life of Napoleon, which he wrote at tbe immediate instance of the Bonaparte family, as a sort of reply to Sir Walter Scott's biography of that hero ; and it is under stood from those who were familiar with Mr. Lee, that he did not do justice to his intellectual powers in this Work, remarkable as it ia. Mrs Child her self figured as an authoress, but perhaps her pre tentions were greater than her powers as a writer. Her husband is believed to be the correspondent of the New York Commercial Advertiser, and tbe author of tbe letters which occasionally appear in the "Times," (London,) with the signature, "A Statesman." Another Safe to be Recovered.—John Green, who recovered the safe from the Atlantic, has been engaged to descend to the steamboat Lexington, which was burned on the Sonnd in the winter of it£l7, with the view of recovering the $18 000 which sunk with the wreck. The vessel lies in <10 feet of water, and the treasure is said to be iii an accessible place. Abduction Case and Excitement.—A very remarkable case of abduction has recently come to light in New York, and is exciting great atten tion. Some two months since a young girl namell Margaret House, known as "Our Maggie" in So lon Robinson's '"Hot Corn" book, suddenly disap peared from her parents and friends, and no clue to her whereabouts could be found Rewards were offered and a letter was received from Cleveland, stating that a girl answering to her description, accompanied by a man named Haverman, had en tered the writer's store and obtained a drink of soda water. As Haverman had boarded in the house where Maggie resided, and as he had myste riously disappeared at the same time, the suspi cion had already fastened upon him, and Mr Du guya, an uncle of the girl, went to Cleveland to see the writer of the letter. Though no name or address was given, Mr. Du guya intended visiting every place in the city where soda water was sold, but, fortunately, at the very first stand he went to he found the writer, and learned that Haverman bad gone to Chicago. Thither he hastened, and by means of an adver tised reward a German agreed to take him to the place where Haverman worked; he was found with the girl in his possession, and brought back to New York. " Maggie,'' it ig said, was very glad to get rid of him At the depot at Chicago the mob was so infuriated that it was proposed to ex ercise the Lynch law upon him, and all along the route the greatest interest was manifested. Ha verman will shortly be tried. Decision on the Liquor Law.—The Spring field (Mass ) Republican states that the Supreme Court of that State has sustained the constitution ality of the existing liquor law, in cases brought up to it from several of the eastern counties. The New Hampshire Legislature adjourned Sat urday, after a session of 3a days and passing 128 act*. * 'I'KKMBNUOL'M KXCITUiUK.M' AT N. i EZEKIEL'B Cheap Dry Goods Store Still soother new lot of ihe handsomest styles of raper fiue Krench Jaconetta and Uns. warranted fast co lors. will he opened at my store this morning, and will be sold off at a ninepsnce the yard- precisely such goods ssaie usually sold at 25 cents Ladies sre invi ted to call and examine for themselves, ss "seeing is believing-" It will be to the advantage of these wishing to pur chase to call early and select, aa there is choice in the styles sad roiers.
