It i Understood that arrangements are in progress among the officer of the Arctic Expeditions, to bestow some national tesli. innnial upon Mr. Grinnell, for his generous conduct in fitting out the late expedition from New York, in search of Sir John Franklin. THE CRISIS IN FRAXCE. The affairs of France have reached the long dreaded crisis. The toup d'etat has been made. On the 1st inst., the President, Louis iNapoleon, seized the reins of government dissolved the Assembly by proclamation, declared the city of Paris in a state of iteifie, arrested the lenders of the opposition, land appealed In the people. The prepara tions on the part of the President for this movement were perfected with consummate skill and secresy. Everything was consum mated before the Assembly had the least idea of the President's intentions. During Monday night an entire new Min istry was formed. At daylight on Friday morning the Piesi . den's proclamation was found posted every . .where throughout t ho citv. in which he ordered the dispersion of the Assembly, the restoration of universal suffrage, and also .proposed a new system of government. He - proposes the instant election by the people and army of a President, to hold his office .for ten years, and to bo supported by a Council of State and by two Hoiis?s of the Legislature. Pending the election, the Exe cutive rower is to remain in the hands of .the Prerilent. ,. The election is to take place during the present month, and the President promises to bow to. the will of the people. He ays he has been forced into his present attitude. - It it certain that Thiers, Changarnier, and others, opponent of the President, haj de elded to demand his arrest and impeach ment en the 2nd inst., and were almost in the act of moving in the matter, when they and their principal friends were arrested and conveyed to Vincennes, where they are closely confined. Whenever the members of the Assembly have attempted to meet officially, they have been ordered to disperse, and arrested if they refused. ' Two hundred members had been arrested many had subsequently been released ; but all' the leaders of the opposition were in prison. " Three hundred of the members of the Assembly are said to have uiven in their adhesion to the President, and telegrahic despatches from the Departments, state that the President's demonstration has been hail (tj with the utmost enlhusiam. Subsequently, however, the reports were Contradicted, and on the strength of such contradiction, numerous barricades were erected in different quarters of Paiis, but were speedily broken down, by the troops. At one of these two members of the As sembly, occupying prominent places among the populace, were killed in the conflict. ' On Tuesday, a section of the Assembly coulifinatl to meet, and decreed the deposi tion of the President and his impeachment for high treason. The meeting, however, was dispersed by the troops. - The decree of the President is ridiculed on all hands. Troops have been placed in the houses of ex-officers of the Assembly, who er exempted trom arrest ; among others, M. Dnpin. The full rigor of martial-law had been proclaimed against all persons conrerned in erecting. barricade! who may be found at them, and large number had been hot. Up to Thursday night the complete suc cess of the President seemed certain. FURTHER FROM FRANCE. -i' Paris, Fiiday, Dee. 8.

FURTHER PARTICULARS OF THE MOVEMENTS IN FRANCE. The Pari correspond en iT of the London Herald and Chronicle state that Gen. Castel lan, at Lyons, and Gen Evymier, have de clared against tho President. But this is denied. Doubts are also entertained of Gen. Mignon's disposition towards the Gov ernment. Strasbourg and Rheims are said to have risen. The Daily News states that Gen. Neu moyer is marching from the north with four regiments, and will oppose the President. The correspondent of the Times states that the attetnuted emeule at Drove' was promptly suppressed, and that the most rcli able accounts from the department are fa vorable to the President's cause.

The French fleet had bombarded Rabbat and Sallee for eight hours, causing great destruction of life and property. The French also suffered some sliuht injury from the return fire of the Castle of Rab bat.

LETTER FROM WASH! OTO!, Washington, IVc 20, 1851 Foote is now making the wmc fiuht in the Senate which he has made in Mississippi and he will yet come out victorious in this stins'e as he did nut nf the hist. Nor must von imL'ine thut there is the slightest intention of driving an) body away from the Compromise that is now willing in support it, on account of p-isl difference. Oi the contra i y, it is to bring in ntte supporters to the measuie. Two great acquisitions have already been made: Messis. Hunter and Mason, of Virginia. The two Senators from Rhode Island, Clark and Green, voted against he Compromise bill, but now Mr. Clark and the successor of Mr. Green, Mr Suimes, will vote for it, as a final measure and a law. believe, even Mr. Davis, of Massachusetts, will vote for it; and a great many others The object then is to give to the Compromise measures a great moral strength, and to pre vent a new agitation of it before the p' opl at the ensuing elections.

By. the politeness of Col. Lea, Commis sioner of Indian Affairs, we have seen a en rinsity of great rarity and interest, left for a few days at the Bureau. It was bionch from the Pottawatomie Reservation, on the Kansas river, by Dr. Lykins, who hits been residing there nearly twenty years ol Ihe thirty he has spent on the frontier., It con sists of four small rolls or strip of parch ment, closely packed in the small compart ment of a little box or locket of about an inch cubical content. On these parchments are written in a style of unsurpassed excel lence, and far more beautiful thiin print, portions of the Pentateuch, to be worn ns fioullets, and intended as stimulants to the memory and moral sense. Dr. Lykins obtained it from Patagwe, a Pottawatomie, who got it from his grand mother, a very old woman. It has been in this particular family about fifty years They hed originally two of them, but on one occasion, a the party in possession were crossing a rapid in some river in the lake country of the North, the other wa irrecoverably lost. The one lost was be lieved by the Indian to contain an account of Ihe cieation of the world. That brought by Dr. Lykin has been kept for a very long period in the medicine bag of the tribe, used as a charm, and never allowed to suffer any exposure, until, bv s'rnns en treaty and the crest influence h had with Tnpinepee, the principal P.iltawatum'C chief, he wa permitted to brine it oa to Washi 'glon, bin under a firm pledge io re store it on his return.
