Correspond oco of tho Courier.
The correspondence which led to the
dismissal of the French Minister?M.
Poussju?appears in the Intelligencer.
The tone assumed by N. /\>ussin to!
wards this government cannot Jje justified,
anu is limy worthy ot the rebuke with
which it has met.
There are different opinions here ?is t.-)
the cause of what is considered as his insolent
bearing, ^omo suppose it is ignorance
of diplomacy; and others think it
was assumed for the purpose of pleasing
Louts Napoleon, who has shown so much |
I of the insolence, without the dignity of I
power. Others, again, think that Louis
Napoleon has given him instructions to
treat us with disrespoct.
Certain it is that from the timo of Louis
; Napoleon's first message to the Lc^isla:
tivo Assembly, he has never, in any friendly
or respectful manner, noticed the Unii
ted States. Certain it is. nlsn tlutf.
present administration have been led to
dfetrtwt his policy towards this country.
Nothing could be more prejudicial to
the ambitious views of Napoleon than a
war with this country. It cannot possibly
enter into his policy. Hut, by multiplying
the difficulties with foreign nations
he gains one point?an excuse for keeping
up a large armament, and the power
which he now has of declaring the 'state
of Beige,' in the recess of the-Legislature.
Armies are maintained by European powers,
not to oYush each other so much as
to keep their own people in subjection.

without reference to this matter.

courts, us a bullying minister, or ia som j

Notwithstanding the contradiction, in

original statement that Mr. Robert Walsh
had been ejected from the U. S. Consulship

positive statement, that he is actually
out of office, or will be as soon as
tho edict can reach him. The N. Y.
Courier of Thursday s;?ys*
Wo learn that despatches went forward
by the last steamer, removing Mr.
Robert Walsh from tho. nffico nfii c
consul at Paris, which he has hold for
some eight years past. Tt has always
been a point conccded by all parlies that
the representatives and agents of the
country abroad should agree substantially,
in sentiment and political sympathy,with
the government at home. The present
administration, though not disposed
to insist rigorously upon this safe rule,
with reference to our own domestic politics,
has felt in the existing state, of opinion
in Europe, a just regard to the. char*
actor of our country requires it to be, enforced,
so far as the essential principle*
I of republican institutions arc concerned.
Afr. IPalsh, therefore, has been removed
mainly because bis sentiments and spmpnthies,
in regard to the struggles for
popular rights and republican institutions
in Europe, are not in harmony with those
of Gen. Taylor and his Cabinet.
