M. Mague ha* made a report to the Emperor oil the financial troubles of the Empire. He states that the deficit of 1854 has been reduced to 73 000 - 000 francs. The deficit of 1855 will not exceed 60,000.000 franca. For the five preceding years the average insufficiency bad not been less than 80,000,000 The indirect revenues in 1855 reach 65 000,000 francs, without counting 33,000 000 ari sing from new taxes. "At no period, under the happiest influences, bas the productive strength of the nation manifes ted itself by such striking signs. Not only has the amount of 1854 been reached and ex ceeded; not only hitherto, at least, has the extra ordinary level of 1855 been obtained, but the first months of the present year, compared with the corresponding months of last year, bare given us a considerable increase. This increase for the first six months alone is 63,000,000 taore than in 1854 ana nearly 26.000,000 over 1855. It is true that the comparison for the month of August is less fa ; vorable; but it is not of consequence; It is ex plained by the anticipated payments made in Au gust of last year with a view to avoid the new tax (i application da nouvcau dec.imr,) This par tial loss will, moreover, soon be made good. The information received allows us to bt>pe that in the month of September the increase will exceed 12,- 4 Finally, the progress of the old taxes and the amount of the new ones form, in the draught of the budget for the nine first months ef the current year, an excess of value of about 72,000,000. The importance of this figure is beyond a question Thus, sire, without giving way to illusions, we have the most serious reason to hope that for the first time since many years the budget for 1856, despite the expense of loans, will have a real ba lance of account. This most desirable result, ob tained at a more difficult period, is the best proof that the rising movement of the public wealth is far from having fallen off. "The embarrassments which have been signa lized are not, therefore, te be attributed to any fundamental vice, but to mometary causes. The state of the Treasury, which is excellent, is an additional proof. The first two loans are settled,and the instalments of the last, which will suffice to liquidate the war, are paid up regularly. The public revenues increase, as I have already ob served, in a proportion never before equalled — The taxes are paid without cost, with rare punc luality, and even la advance. Money flows into the public chest*. The payment of the half year's rente has left us with a reserve of 110,000,000. It must be evident to every man In bis senses that these facts are indications of a fundamentally good position." SPAIN. It waft rumored that an autograph letter baa been addressed by the Emperor to Queen Isabella, advising her Majesty, in the most friendly manner, to govern her people constitutionally, and to re spect the liberty of the subject The government of O'Donnell is showing the greatest energy in the Mexican affair. The Queen has declared the child of the Duchess Montpen sier to be the Infanta of Spain. The government is sending a strong fleet into the Mediterranean. It amounts to a total of 200 guns. ITALY. A letter from Pesaro, in the Roman States, da ted the 19th September, states that all the shops closed in the morning, and various seditious no tices poeted up,.in consequence of the government summoning the tradesmen to pay the arreara of a tax on trades. At noon, however, it was announc ed that the tax was suspended, and immediately all the shops were re-opened and tranquility re stored. SWITZERLAND. The federal powers are resolved to hold their own in Neufcbatel, with the full consent of that Canton. The grand Council of Neufcbatel, indeed, bas voted an address to the Federal Council, thank ing them in the warmest manner for energetic sup port rendered "to one of the members of the Con federation in danger." It has also voted, by a ma jority of forty-eight to thirty-one, the dissolution of the burgeoise, the creation of a municipality, the expulsion of the compromised clergy, and the dis missal of officials who had secretlyor openly aid ed the late insurrection. Swords of honor have been voted to Colonels Denzler and Girard. The Federal Council, in a message to the Federal As sembly, states that Prussia alone has made any formal representation on the subject of Neufcha tel. "If under any circumstances, there were grounds for negotiations, they could not, in our opinion, be opened except on the basis of the recog nition of the complete independence of the Canton of Neufcbatel as regards a foreign power. We shall energetically reject any overture that haa not this for its basis " According to Le Nord, of Brussels, the Rus sian organ, the King of Pruasia is so exasperated at the conduct and language of the Federal Gov ernment of Switzerland in the Neufcbatel affair, that he threatens to proceed to the military occupa tion of the Canton of Neufcbatel, In the event of the prosecution of the royalist prisoners not being suspended. THE NEW DANISH MINISTRY. The Ministerial crisis in Denmark is at an end. The Cabinet is reconstituted as foliowa: M. An drea, President of the Council and Foreign Secre tary ; M. Fenger, Finance Department; M. Scbeele (Minister for the German Duchies) and the other members of the late Cabinet, with the exception of M. Bang, retain their portfolio*. CHINA. From Hong Kong we have the following: "Of the rebels in Quangsi, we hear nothing. An ex tenaive fire broke out on the 23d of July, among the boats at Shameen suburb, whieh destroyed great numbers, and about 200 lives were lost — From Shanghai, we have dates to the 31st of July. The movements of the rebels still created much uneasiness, but large bodies of Tartar troop* bad lately been brought down from the north, and tb<;re was a report that the rebels bad been de. feated and obliged to retire towards Cbing klau§« foo. This require*confirmation." AUSTRALIA. By die overland mail we are in reeeipt of Byd ney paper* to the Bth of July, containing advice* from Melbourne to the 28tb of June. Parliament was opened by commission on the S2d of Jane, under circumstances of greater inter est than had ever before attended the opening of the sessions of the colonial legislature. The Melbourne Ago report* that the escorts from Mount Alexander aad Bailarat, had brought into Melbourne on tbe 27th of June, 29,109 ounces of gold, an£ £28,797 cash. Aa sgiution waa afloat for the a»*imllation of the tariffs in tha Australian colonies. Both at Msi bourne and Sydney the necessaries of life won exceedingly cheap, and agricultural produce was selling at prices which ware not remunera tive. At Sydney potatoes were naaaleable at 2s. *?t was hoped that the Chineee, who were Tory numerous In Victoria, might be induced to engage In making the railway*. Both la Melbourne aad Sydney assoclatioas had been formed against foTsromeat grants to reli gious denominations.

In preparing for such a contingency as a raising of the coolies, tbe small arms were placed on the poop, and two guns were loaded with grape and pointed forward. About nine o'clock of tbe night of the Bth, the disturbance commenced, and the crew took refnge 08 Poop. The captain first fired a shot or two overhead, bat ss that had no effect, aad the eoo lies advanced towards them, yelliog frightfully, armed with belaying pin*, brick* torn from tbe cooking places, ie., tbe captain gave orders to hi* men to fire, and immediately a volley wa* poured Into the infuriated mass from tbe two guns and also the small arm*. This bad tbe effect of check g and putting down the riot, and the coolies were driven below, but they sought revenge by setting fire to tbe ship, and ia a few minutes tbe captain was appalled by seeing flame* issuing from the fure hatch. A frightful scene of carnage followed, the coolies rushed upon the deck, and no doubt murdered all the officers of the *hip. None of them, nor tbe captain, were afteward* seen. Tbe ship wag toon in a blase, fore and aft. In about an hour the mainmast fell with a crash, then the fore and mizzen, and about midnight the magazine blew up with a tremendous explosion. Tbe ship wa* hurled into fragments, and a vast number of poor creature*, who, clinging on tbe cbaias, perished with her. Of tbe number who were on board, including crew and passenger*, about 500, only ISO escaped with their Hves; the remainder were either burnt in the ship or drown ed. The affair has produced a great sensation at Hong Kong. Illness or Semator Clattok.—The illness of Senator Clayton is of so serious a nature as to preclude the hope of a permanent restoration to his accustomed bealth. The Delaware State Re. porter, of Tuesday last, say s : "Mr. Clayton, we understand, has been confined to hi* room, at the residence of Mr. Comegyt, in thia town, for two or three week* past Of the particular nature of his complaint, we have not been informed; but his physicians think it doubt ful whether he will entirely recover. On Saturday last he joined the Presbyterian church, aad took the sacrament, ia bis apartment, at M r. Comegys's." Accident.—Oa Friday afternoon, as a salute was being fired at Chepachet, R 1., in honor of the Democratic victory in Pennsylvania, the cannon was discharged prematurely, blowing off tbe right band of Mr. Jeremiah Mathewson, and forcing tbe ramrod through the thigh of a young lad of about ten years of age. son of a Mrs. Palmer. A fatal termination is apprehended in the ca3e of the lat ter. New Theatre in Norfolk.—The new thea tre in Norfolk, Va., is rapidly progressing, and will be finished during tbe winter. Tbe building is 160 feet deep and 70 feet front. The theatre ball will be 134 by 70 feet, and 30 feet pitch, and the stage will be 70 by 40 feet. Tho gallery will extend all around, and the calculated capacity of the building is 4000 seats. It will be, by far, tbe finest and most capacious theatre in the State, and will compete with any in the south. Fish with Legs.—The Rochester, N.

Charge of Pocket-Picking —William and Joseph Hogan, charged with itealing $398 from the pockst of Mrs. William C Butler, at the Fair ground*, in ! Petersburg, on Thursday last, were arraigned be fore the Mayor yesterday. The prisoner* are quite young, one of them a mere boy. There is ' something about their appearance tending to ex cite suspicion, notwithstanding the gentility of their dress and the innocent air they endeavor to assume. Mrs Butler stated that she was in Octa gon Hall, looking at the articles on exhibition, when some person pushed her repeatedly. Shortly afterwards an individual, whom she believed was the largest of the two prisoners, left the room, and sbe immediately missed the pocket book. She had taken ber husband's money to keep, because she thought no one wonld have the impudence to put bit hand In her pocket, though she bad been cau tioned to be careful. She was not positive as to the identity of the prisoner, thongh she believed •be saw bim in tbe hall about the time the money was stolen. She had no distinct recollection of seeing tbe small one, but was under the impres sion that the two were together. After hearing the testimony of the officers who made the arrest, the Mayor decided to send the prisoners back to Petersburg, to undergo an ex amination. A Clergyman's Pocket Picked.—During the ex amination of the two Hogans, at the Mayor's Court, yesterday morning, the Rev. Wm H. Starr, agent of the Virginia Colonization Society, asked the privilege of making a statement. He said that on Wednesday evening, about quarter after 6 o'clock, as he was leaving the Weldon cats, op posite Jarratt's Hotel, he was very shrewdly re lieved of his portemonnaie by a pick pocket. It contained, in gold, silver and bank notes, about $79, together with a travelling card granted bim a few months since by Washington Division, No 1. Bodß of Temperance, of Norfolk, a receipt from E. J. Griffith, Esq, of the same city, for a note left with bim for collection, a coupon ticket pur chased that day at the ticket office in Weldon *o secure bis passage from Petersburg to Richmond, with a few small articles of little value. While passing out of the car, with his carpet bag in bis right band and his umbrella in his left, two voung men jammed bim quite Impolitely; the one before bim would not go off the steps, and the one in the rear urging Mr. Starr to proceed and let bim out At last the young man in advance turned bis face up toward the one behind, as If to learn from him whether to release Mr. S. or not. Instantly he was permitted to step down upon the ground, and feeling in bis left pocket, discovered that his porte monnaie bad been abstracted. Mr. Starr hopes, that as it is said there are some honor even among thieves, tbey will place his portemonnaie and the papers where they may be sent to bim, car* of Rev. Dr. L. M. Lee, Richmond. Sating Machinei are becoming very popular with the ladies, not only because they execute their work well and neatly, but because tbey aave a vast amount of midnight toil over smoky lamps or brilliant gas lights. In the fair of the Mechanics' Institute are two of these "labor-savera," of Hunt &. Webster's patent, which appear to as to be a* near perfect in every part as human ingenuity eould desire- These machines are simple in eon struction, easily understood, and are not liable to get out of erder. Another recommendation they possess is, that the eye sight is not affected by tbeir use, nor do they require extraordinary care to keep them iu order. They hem, stitch, fell and run with accuracy, and when their work is com pleted, it will stand as long as the cloth lasts. Mr. P. Horton Keach, of this city, haa deposited these articles, and is the agent for their sale.
