There is no later news, in the European "Tiroesj (the only .paper that has come to ' hand) from Constantinople or St Petersburg, ' and of course, we have got no solution of the "difficulty between the Porte and the Autocrat 4he geneial belief, however, among well in .formed circles, is said to be that Russia - will i pocket the affront rather than provoke a col- lision with France and England. N 'Their is a rumor from, that in consequeuce tf the relation in which Louis Napoleon stands -with 'the Czar, he would gladly foregolhe sup port of the nation in behalf of Turkey. A correspondent, writing from Belgrade on the ', einst.,' slates that the Aungarian refugees were still at Widden, ready to set out for the ptirmtiom thev' mav receive. They were divided into three camps an Italian, a Hun .garian, and a Polish one. Each camp is tin .der the order of a colonel, and each man re ceives such daily rations, according to his grade, like the British troops. , Prince Alexander of Servia, had behaved very well towards them, allowing them free pnssago through his territory, and provisions. Bent, Dembinsky and several others, have not only embraced Islaism, but entered the Turkish army. The Porte is said to have appointed the Isle of Canada as the residence of the Refugee Magyars. ,i .; , FRANCE, i' ,The aeliberationsofthe National Assembly -were almost wholly devoted, on the 12th and ' 13th ult., to the report of M. Thiers on the Roman questian. The report is decidedly "'conservative, and at variance with the ex pressed views of the President's letter to M. ' Ney. The conclusion at which M. Thiers arrives is, that liberal institutions are incom ( patible with the independence of the Pope ras a temporal sovereign, and likewise the independenco of the Catholic Church, and !the. rights of the people ure at issue the lat ter ought to give way. It is not believed that the views or M. 'Thiers will be responded to by the French '; nation, and it is certain that both the matter and style of the report are very unsatisfactory ' to the President of the Republic. , At a Ministeral Council held subsequently, it .was decided that the Government would . follow exclusively the policy lad down in the i letter of the President on the affairs of Rome i the effect of which resolution will be, it is said) to cause M. Falloux and General Rul hieres immediately to retire from the Minis ' try.- No action had taken place on the part of the Assembly, to indicate the views of the majority on the report of M. Thiers; but : there was a rumor from Pail's, on Thursday, ' that the difficulty between M. Thiers and the : President had been satisfactorily adjusted. tThe High Court of Justice at Versailles -commenced its sittings on the 12th, and is at r present engaged in trying the persons con ieerned with the affairs of the 13th July. -Several exciting disreputable scenes have -.occurred before the Court, and there is rea- son to apprehend that others will follow. l! On the 13th, M. Emile deGirardin was be ' ing examined as a witness, when a violent altercation took place between him und the I Procureur General, in the course of which M. fcGira,rdin declared in open court, that as the constitution having been, violated, resistance wass right and a duty..;' . J '!; At a subsequent stage of the examination ' the judge forbade AI. Girardin to reply to a " remark of one of the consel, when all the prisoners rose 'en masse and demanded, with violent gesticulations, that the witness should .be heard. A fearful scene of tumult and ' confusion ensued, and nearly an hour elapsed "before the httissicr$ could bring the accused and the judge to a state of calmness. nfc On the day following one of the witnesses, a Lieut, of the gendarmtcric, boasted of hav .. ing thrust his sabre into the breast ofa man si wtio was married, and advanced witn his bo I som bared, whereupon all the accused rose i. ' i i . i up ami oenounceu mo witness as a coward. One of the counsel declaring that he was not worthy to clean epaulettes. Indescribable confusion ensued, 'which terminated in the judges seeking safety in flight. They return ed, however, in an hour, to say that no notice should be taken of the interruption. '.The National Assembly have annulled the - election for Guadaloupe, in consequence of v Recounts of assassination on the part of the t supporters of the present members.

' A letter from Remnin, dated October 10, says that the Austrinn General, Kuriab, had arrived at Widden, from which the dates reached to the 6th inst j with a letter from General llaynnu to the Pacha, by which the Hungarian refugees, from the sergeants down wards, , are pardoned, in consequence of which the greater part of them returned to Hungary.' Gen. Kuriab then proceeded to Constantinople. Several hundred officers of those furnished with passports from Comoro, have passed through Berlin, on their way to the West. Some of them are going to America. , Klapka ' is said to have been among those refugees, and to have embraced the resolution of crossing the Atlantic with 300 others. According to Lloyd's, Hungary is to be di vided henceforth into tdl districts, each to have its own Provincial Governor, yet the Deputies are to be chosen by a majority of the votes of the population. ROME. Accounts from Rome are the reverse of satisfactory. The return ol the Pope is still talked about, but when it may take place is still the subject of conjecture. There has been a misunderstanding between ono of the Cardinals and M. de Corcelles, and the Frenchman being offended at a letter re ceived from the Ecclesiastic, complains of the number of traitors still tolerated in the Eternal City. The point was referred to His Holiness, w ho disapproved of the Cardinal's conduct and threw him overboard. Garibaldi has left the island of Santa Ma dilina for Gibraltar, where he will sail for London, ultimately, it is said, to America. ; , ENGLAND. A large and highly respectable meeting, presided over by the Lord Mayor, took place at the Egyptian Hall, London, On the 17th ult., relative to the proposed exhibition of industry of all nations in that city, during the ensuing year. The best feeling was evinced towards the plan of the projectors, and it was proposed to raise by subscription the sum of 20,000 to distribute in premiums. All na tions are invited, without distinction or pre ference, and the promoters of the design feel no misgiving of the probability of raising 100,000 or more for the general expenses of the exhibition, IRELAND. The anti-rent conspiracy in Ireland is ex tending throughout all parts of that ill-fated land. The local journals are filled with ac counts of the abduction of crops. There can be no doubt that in the southern and in parts of the northern provinces, there is a general determination on the part of the Peasantry to defraud landlords of their rents to such an extent as would seem calculated to consum mate the rniii of the country. The fearful effects of the potato blight, of the fever, the cholera, and the other diseases by which Ireland has been desolated, seem ed likely to be far exceeded by the calami tous results of the moral pestilence that is spreading rapidly throughout the laud. A conflict, attended with fatal results, took place on the 13th, at Kitterby, in King's county, in which three policeman were killed, or mortally wounded, and several others were seriously injured. Several volleys were sub sequently fired into the barrack whither the constabulary had been compelled to retreat, and the corn was carried otT in triumph by the peasantry. ' ' The excitement growing out of the dismis sal of Rord Roden from the magistracy, seems likely to lead to very serious results ; Orange men and Repealers are once more glaring at each other with the malice of fiends; the Orangemen of the North are preparing for a grand field day on the 5th of November, the anniversary of the Gunpowder plot, which, if not prevented by the strong arm of the law, can hardly fail to end in the shedding of blood.

(; I ScFrERiNo and Wintering at the Mor, mow Sbttlemewt at Salt Lake. The St. Louis Republican has a letter from Green River, California Territory, dated Aug. 19th, and another from Fort Larami, Indian Terri tory, dated Sept. 18lh, which give somr; in teresting news from Salt Lake respecting the overland emigrants, for California. It is any thing but flatteringi , There is every proba bility that fifteen to twenty thousand persons will be compelled to pass the winter , at the Mormon settlement of Salt Lake, owing to the grass being consumed by fire for two hundred miles beyond; tendering it impossi ble to subsist the animals irt the train of the emigrants. The supplies at Salt Lake are limited, and there will be much suffering un less the emigrants themselves are provided, which is not likely, as they have thrown away everything that could impede their travel. i. It is evident that a great want of foresight has characterized this overland expedition. The country was but little known, and the difficulties to be encountered not at all un derstood. First the emigrants overloaded themselves with every useless kind of article furniture of no possible use to them, and household luxuries that could well be dis pensed with in the new country they were going to. These they were compelled to abandon iu a very short time, and subse quently, when their horses, mules and oxen were broken down by this unnecessary lum ber, they were compelled to part with more valuable things.-' About one thousand wa gons have been burnt or abandoned on the road. Along the banks of the North Platte to where the Sweetwater road turns off, tho amount of valuable property thrown away is astonishing iron, trunks, clothing, &c, ly iuo strewed about to the value of at least fifty thousand dollars in about twenty miles. Five hundred dead oxen, one writer says, he counted on the road.' '.;' ', - Those who will succeed in getting across to the land of their hopes ' will scarcely be much better on than their companions at Salt Lake. 'They will'arriv so lule that the season for working the mines will be over, and they will be. compelled to pass in idle uess a long winter in , California, many of them destitute of money or other of the ne cessaries of life, and compelled to subsist upon the charity 'and benevolence, of those who are better provided. Wilh these pros. peets before them, we must expect to hear of much suffering among them. The difficul ties to be encountered will probably deter any further emigration bj the land route.

This subject really demands attention, and we think that the girls should suggest some plan by which these diap. pointments might bo obviated. We think there already exists a mode in which single men can easily be distinguished from married ones, by ladies of discernment. It is by paying little attention to the conver sation and manners of gentlemen. There is an ease and grace in the manners of married men, a eensibleness and want of flutter in their conversation, which enable them to ba readily distinguishea in a mixed company. Unmarried men may be distinguished by a general '"greennpse," a certain frivolous nsss of conversation, and a peculiar flutter of deportment, that nothing but mutiiinony can entirely cure. , A Romantic Elopemf.nt.
