Every thing, however, says the correspondent of the London Globe, indicates that he will hare a large majority. Many persons blame him for his decree re ftoring the Pantheon to its original destination of religious worship, but the general feeling is decidedly in his favor. It is a guarntee that he w ill uphold religion against its enemies, and will make the clergy in the several districts favorable to him. Another decree of the President which will have a good effect is iliat in which he places troops in the suppres sion of riots on the same footing as in England. A credit of 200,000 francs has been open ed for the relief of the families of those' killed by the insurrection. . j The Moniteur contains a decree announcing the dissolution of the National Guards and uf j the 6th Legion.

Many of the prisoners when about to be shot by the troops were saved by the personal intervention of the officers. l he Prefect of Police has issued circulars commanding; that all crowds of Legitimists must be suppressed by practising on a lartre scale a svstem of searches and arrests. The exact loss sustained by the army in the late engagements, is not known. One su perior officer and fifteen soldiers were killed and three officers and 104 soldiers wounded. The loss is considered a heavy one. M. Theirs has been liberated by the Presi dent, on account of ill health, but with the promise that he would leave the country. The Socialists have committed great attroci ties at Clai-elicy and elsewhere. Proclamation of the President. Paris, Monday evening. Frenchmen 1 The disturbances are paci fied. Whatever be the decision of the peo ple, society is served. Tae finst part of my task is accomplished. The appeal I made to the nation, to terminate the struggles of par ties, was, as I foresaw, attended with no seri ous risk to the public tranquility. Why should the people have risen against me, if 1 no lon ger hare your confidence? If your ideas are changed, there is no need to cause the shed ding uf precious blood. It suffices to deposit a siugle vote, and I abide the decree of the decree of the people. But so long as the na tion has not spoken, I will recoil from no ef fort, from no sacrifice to baffle the attempts of the rebellious, ihe task has now become easy. Un one hand it has been shown how mad it was to contend against an army anima ted by honor and patriotism. Un the other hand, the tranquil attitude of the people of Paris, and the reprobation with which they stigmatize the iusurrcction, show for whom the Capital has declared itself and its populous quarters, where insurrection was want to enlist its recruits so quickly among woikmen docile to its instigation. Anarchy Ibis time, has only been able to meet a profound repugnance for this detesta ble invocation. Thanks be tendered to the intelligent and patriotic people of Paris. Let that population persuade itself that my sole ambition is to secure the repose and prosper ity of France. Let it continue to lend its con currence to authority, and soon the country will be able to accomplish in quiet the solemn act, which is to inaugurate a new era for the Republic.

Our villngc has been visited by one of the most appalling and destructive fires which has occurred in the West for years. At 1 2 o'clock on Saturday night our citizens were alarmed bv the sudden bursting out of a volume of flame from the center ef a most valuable and popular block, owned and occupied by the principal business men, with heavy stocks. The entire blwk, from and including J. B. Walker's store to the margin of the river, is a mass of smokinz ruins. Owing (o the ex treme combustibility of the material and the fact of tl.cre being no engine in the place, but comparatively a small portion of the goods were saved.

Accounts from Australia give a most bril liant account of the discovery of gold. Our Kew York Correspondence. . New York, Dec 19, 1851. Mb. Editor: The town-talk is still Kos suth. It is Kossuth in the morning; Kossuth all the forenoon; Kossuth at dinner; Kossuth all the afternoon ; Kossuth at tea ; Kessuth all the evening, and Kossuth all night; for nobo dy dreams of anything but Kossuth now. On 'Change and in the Halls of Justice, in places of business, in places of amusement, in the street, at the fireside everywhere, in short, ' you hear of nothing but Kossuth. He is "the 1 oe an, ana ttie end all," here in JSew York. The Clergy, of all Protestant denomina tions, arc rot a whit behind other classes in the nini.ii'ruiions of admiration for Kossuth and sympathy for his Country. The cordial greeting e:-nded to him by the highly intel ligent and iiifluenlial clergymen of this and neighhoiing cities has given a marked impet us to the populur enthusiasm. Many distin gui? bed Di ines have preached Kossuth, in- stead of tha gospel, for the last fortnight 1 do nut say this tneeiing'y or reproachfully. I think they cou'! hardly do better than to in spire their hearers with an ardent zeal for Ci vil and Itvligiou Liberty, and a desire to see them extended to nil nations. I feel quite cer tain that to "preach the Gospel as it is in Je sus," is to preach Republicanism. Christ was the greittest Kepublican that ever lived ; and his ministers on earth, if they are true to their tioty trust, cannot retrain from biddinsr Kos suth God-speed in his great and stupendous crusade against the toes ot all Liberty, all Re ligion, and all the noblest yearnings and aspi rutidiis of the human soul. For my part, I thank God that I have nobler aspirations than the accumulation of material comforts; and I would have my country likewise. I would like to see this country the champion and up holder of Freedom in all lands. And she has the power to be and to do this. It has become fashionable, I know, for timid croakers to ar gue that we are only strong at home; that, placed on European soil, the prowess of our armies would vanish like the baseless fabric of a vision. But I scout, with all the contempt that it is possible for the human heart to feel all such base, cowardly and false assertions. I believe and my belief is founded upon searching investigation and mature reflection that no two European nations combined would prove a respectable match for us, anv- tehere. Let them select their battle-field, and we will whip them on it One hundred thou sand fiy hting men can be assembled in this ci ty, atone, at any time, on six hours notice ! On our own soil, Russia would not begin to be a match for the single State of New York. Russia conquer the Empire State! Ilow mon strously absurd the thought And shall we have it eternally dinned in our ears that we have nothing to do, and can do nothing, on the continent of Europe ? I tell you, Mr. Editor, and I tell our Government, that the great American Hbart is panting almost to burst ingto see our starry banner unfurled upon the plains of the Old World, in behalf of Hu man Rights The love of Freedom Freedom for all nations is a lamp that has been light ed in the breast of every true American, by lue banc ol Jjeily, and no sophistry, no miser able doctrines of expediency, can ever put it out ; and they who attempt to quench it, will be themselves consumed. But, I must leave this subject; and I will only say in conclusion, that 1 hope the time will come, ere long, when from the decks of our battle-ships, nnd at the heads of our armies, we will read the declara tion of Indfnendeoce to the despots of Europe, preparatory to sending thera to sup with Pla to; and 1 hope your sentiments square with mine. Jt tnev do not. l resrrctit exceedins'lv. LastTuesdav, an immense crowd collected in front of the Irving House, and compelled Mr. Howard to haul down the bnghsh flag had been kept flying along "with the Ameri can, Turkish and Hungarian Flags, for several days previous. This demonstration was caus- d by the attack on the Prometheus by the British brig of war. Our citizen soldiery assembled at Castle Garden, to greet Kossuth, last night Several thousands were presest They made a roost magnificent and imposing appearance. Kos suth's speech was received wit unbounded ap plause, the enthusiasm of the soldiers rose to a towering bight, and hundreds of them audibly expressed their burning desire to un furl their banners on the plains of Hungary. A new fjtar, of the hrst magnitude, has late ly risen in our theatrical horizon. I refer to dustavus Vasa Brooke, the eminant London tragedian. I have not yet seen him ; but re port says great things of his h'l rionic talents. Kossuth is going to nu-et, address anJ shake hands wiih the ladies of New York, on Saturday afternoon next Ihe "dear crea tures" are true patriots, and anient sympa thisers, and the ceremonies of the occasion ill, no doubl, be highly interesting. One of lie most important events that has yet transpired in this country, so far as Hun gary is Concerned, was the assembling of a large number of the citizens of New York, at the Astor House, on Tuesday afternoon, the lGlh inst., for the purpose of making an or ganized effort in favor of Hungarian indepen dence. A thorough organization was effected. Seventy of our leading and most excentive men have taken hoM of this matter; and it is quite certain that efficient operations will be immediately commenced, and large sums of money raised and placed at the disposal of the Directors of Hungarian attairs. Yours truly, PETER WHITE. Kossuth's Position. Kossuth stands in a position never before occupied by any mortal. He is now a man with a new name a revolutionist, not from creed, perhaps but from patriotic necessity ; yet he is the object of persecution and the cause of terror with the mightiest monarchs ofjEurope. Without a house, without a home without a country, he sees the governments of Austria, Russia, Prussia, and France banded against bi n a single individual a single or ator a man who never drew a sword I Was ever a contest equeal to this? But such is the power of principle when set in opposition to cannon and bayonets. Boston Courier.

The Christinas Ball At Kestlers was a decided improvement over any thing of the kind ever witnessed in Fre mont The ladies looked prettier; the music was better, and the dancing more animated. As usual, the cities of Tiffin and Sandusky, and the neighboring towns, were well repre sented. Kestler had things fixed up just right, and nothing unpleasant occurred to mar the hormony nnd pleasures of the evening. A Bright Pop. A correspondent of Pooler & Go's., Dis patch gives an account of "A Bright Pup," five months old, whose sagacity has shaken the belief of many in the old established doc trine, that dogs are not endowed with reason. He was raised by a man whose family consists efnine persons, each of whom this dog knows by name, and his roaster sends him almost any distance for either of them, and be will go and lake them by their clothing, and they have to comply. He never, like the Irish woman with her twin babies, "mistakes one for totber." He will fetch wood into the house, when told, as well as a boy, and will do manv other errands with equal intelligence. There is also "A Bright One" who writes for the Sandusky County Democrat over the signature of a . The following smart thing emanated from his pen, but whether it was dictated by some one else, deponent sayeth not: "Mr. Fillmore, Cabinet, and the few Whig newspapers which are receiving fat jobs from them, turn the cold shoulder upon Kossuth. t is a fact honorable to the nation that they stand alone and solitary in what can only be characterized as sympathy for tyrants, or a degree of cowardice amounting to imbecility." t-& Messrs. H. Beardsley fe Co., of Nor alk, have recovered a verdict of $10,000 damages against LeaisTappan, of New York, for libel. Hon. Henry Clay has resigned his seat in the Senate, and wili spend the winter in Philidelpbia. and return to Ashland in the Spring. - 3T "Old Wbitey," the favorite war-horse of Gen. Taylor, is now in New York city, and appeared in the Kossuth procession, richly de corated with rosettes and velvet cloth. tST About 20,000 have been placed at the disposal of Kossuth, to aid the cause of Hungary. o t3 Smead, of Cincinnati ; Genin, the New York hatter, and Horace Greely, have sever ally presented one thousand dollars each to the Hungarian fund, and express the hope that ninety-seven others may be found that will contribute one thousand dollars each.

The steamship America sailed on the 17th inst for Liverpool, with 1,120,000 in specie. O what a blessed thing free trade is. 3T The Detroit Free Press, a decided Lo- cofoco paper, thus speaks of the President's message : "The message is a good one, and is all that a reasonable man had a right to expect; so far as its arrangement and brevity is concern ed, it is better than any of its predecessors, which we now bear in mind." fiT Kossutli is to be in Cincinnati in a about two weeks. He is now in Philadelphia where the greatest demonstrations of respect are being shown him. tS" The Washington Union, the New York Courier and Enquirer, and other Loco foco papers, are "turning the cold shoulder upon Kossuth," and all because he has refus ed to coalese with their party in a crusade against the principles of the Whig party.

The Administration and the Locofoco Press. , The desperate attempts that are now be ing made by the Opposition Press to mislead the public mind in regard to the position of Mr. Fillmore and his Cabinet on important questions now before the country, partakes of the nature of FalstafPs account of his heroic exploits with the men in buckram: Prince Henry. What fouarht ve with them all? ' Falstaff. All ? I know not what ve call, all : oui u a lougni not wnn nrty ot mem, i am a bunch of radish; if there were not two or three and fifty upon poor old Jack, than am I no two legg ed creature. fonts fray God, yoa have not murdered some of them.

Began to give me ground: But I fol lowed me close, came in foot and hand ; and, without thought, seven of the eleven I paid. f. lien. O monstrous! eleven buckram men grown out of two. So with these Falstaff of the Locofoco par ty. They first set out with an untruth, skil fully told, and vain-glorious of their own im portance, keep pileing them up with such quick succession, that all honest men become at once disgusted. The latest, and most bare faced libel of these base and arrant dema gogues, is the charge that the President and Mr. Webster were opposed to the public re ception of Kossutli. This has not only been done without evidence, but against evidence, and for the poor, miserable purpose of making foreigners believe that they, the Locofoeos, were the exclusive friends of the foreign pop ulation. Let these defamers of our public men look. for a moment, at the facts, and then hide their guilty heads, and more guilty consciences, from the gaze of an honest people: First, then, when the noble Kossuth, and his exiled followers, were banished from their native land, and had found nn asylum in the dominions of Turkev, we find President Fill more, in his annual message to Congress in 185'', recommending to the consideration of that body the propriety of its authorizing the employment of some one of the United States Vessels to bring those exiles to this country. In accordance with his recommendation, Con gress passed the following resolution : "Whereas the people of the United States sincerely sympathise with the Hungarian ex iles, Kossuth and bis associates, and fully ap preciate the magnanimous conduct of the Turkish Government in receiving and treating those noble exiles with kindness and hospital ity ; and whereas, if it be the wish of those ex iles to emigrate to the United States, and the will of the Sultan to permit them to leave his dominions therefore, the President of the United States is requested to authorize the employment of some one of the public vessels which may now be cruising in the Meditera nean, to receive and convey to the United States the said Louis Kossuth and his asso ciates in captivity." In accordance with the power invested in him, the President employed the Steamship Mississippi to perform this duty. Secondly, when Kossuth, and bis associates, :re nearing the shores of America, Mr. Fillmore ordered, on his own responsibility, that every demonstration of respect be shown them by the authorities of the Government. Instructions were given to the Army, Navy, Arsenals, &ic, to fire salutes, display tbe stars and stripes, and to exhibit every token of re spect consistent with the dignity of the Gov ernment These instruction! were executed to the letter. But we will prove the allegations of these political tricksters false from tbe lips of Locofo eos themselves. Mr. Foote, the Senator from Mississippi, made a speech on the subject of Kossuth's reception, in the Senate, on Tues day, the 9th inst, which is reported at length in the National Intelligencer. Hear what he says : "I do not rise for the purpose of continuing this debate; and if any gentleman wishes to discuss the resolution, 1 shall give way to bim. I intend simply to put myself right before the country in regard to this matter. I introdu ced the original resolution, as I have already stated, at the instance of tbe Secretary of State, Mr. Webster, and, as declared to me by him, and doubtless truly, with the sanc tion of the Administration itself, it being the opinion of the President and his Cabinet, as is clearly intimated in the last annual message, that it was the duty of Congress, under a)l the circumstances existing, to provide a suita ble reception for the distinguished personage whose character and actings have been the subject of such extended remarKs on mis oc casion." He introduced the original resolution for the public reception of Kossuth at the special request of Mr. Webster, and with the express sanction of the President and his Cabinet ! Reader, does that look like the President and Mr. Webster were opposed to the public re ception of Kossuth ? We think not; yet the Locofoco press of the country have the brazen impudence to charge them with "turning the cold shoulder upon Kossuth." Out upon such poltroons and knaves who have not the man liness or moral honestry to speak the truth when it is against the interest of their party ! "Man never m but always to be blest.' Winter, On Tuesday morning the mercury went down 14 degrees below zero; on Wednesday, 12 indicating a greater intensity of cold thnn has been known in this region since the mem orable cool morning of '48, when the mercury sunk to 17. Hav'nt heard from Fremont, but suppose, as Shrenkhas considerable to do with the thermometer in that place, that it ranges there several degrees above zero! We extract the above from the Seneca Ad vertiser, a paper published in Tiffin city; and the following two articles are taken from the Seneca Whig, a paper published in the same city. Readers can make their own comments: Art. No. 1. "It must be apparent to every observer that the evil of intemperance has been for some time past, greatly on the in crease in this city. Grog shops are springing up ail around us, and liquor by large and small measure, are dealt out in an unlimited degree. The practice is openly followed. The bottle is set out in full view of any one who may enter one of these hells on earth. If a temperance man happens to enter one of them, he is insulted, with bottles, filled with the deadly poisen, besides he finds there a room full of bloated-faced rum-suckers, whose fami lies at home, perhaps, are nearly naked and half starved, fur want of the common comforts of life. In connection with these shops, a number, we are informed, are supplied with gambling rooms, where night after night is wasted in seeking unlawful gains and getting money fraudulently and unjustly. The result of all this is, that children are robbed of their daily bread and comforts of life; widows and orphans are made, and men, women and chil dren are hurried to an untimely end." Art. No. 2. "We have heard that some person or persons, are about to erect a still house in Tiffin. We do not knew who the persons are, nor do we care, but if the author ities and people suffer such a useless, demor alizing and murderous engine of destruction to be established in their midst, upon their heads be the curse. It is certainly a matter which ought to interest every lover of good order and good morals. Already our city is cursed with too many hells of ruia and death, and to suffer an additional one, that is still more damning in its character than either, to be erected, is a subject that no man who has any respect for our place, will for a moment countenance, but will frown upon it, and give bis influence against the low-lived murderous traffic." The moral to be learned from the above, is that "those who live in glass-houses," dec. Late from Liberia. The 'Liberia Packet' arrived at Baltimore on Satnrday last, from Monrovia Africa. A letter from Gov Roberts to the Secretary of the N. Y. State Colonization Society, eon eludes as follows: "We are getting along in our usual quiet way. Improvements are steadily advancing, and every year brings with it convincing proof of Liberia's permanent advancement May an all wise Providence continue to watch over her interests." I The Liberia Herald of Oct 15th, has the following: "A few days since, we had a conversation with a clieif of the Pese tribe, respecting the trade of the interior. He professed to have considerable knowledge of it, and said what many have long known, that a few days walk beyond Bo Poro. the country is thickly set tlt-d, and the inhabitants are a trading people. The trade of that country does not find its way here, owing to the rapacious character of the people of Bo Poro, Some of our readers may remember, that at one time, gold was brought into our market; and that it was through the Bo Poro people that the trade with the rich interior ended. Coming from beyond the Bo Poro, travelers necessarialy have to pass through so near it and the chances are ten to one that they fall in with strolling parties of Bo Porians who either rob, or carry them before some of their head men, and then under some pretext they are compclledjto re trace, their steps with emp ty hands. She people of the wealthy interior have no intercourse with us they carry their ivory, gold and hides te Sierra Leone, and Gambia they would have a much shorter distance to travel if tbey had an unmolested route to Libe ria. The Bo Poro people live by plunder they attacked defenceless towns, take away every thing they can find, and make the inhabitants slaves. We would advise Government to give some attention to the interior let it send commis sioners to Bo-Poro, to demand the reason why traders are interfered with on their way to Li beria, and indeed, commissioners might be sent beyond Bo Poro, to enaourage the traders to open their trade with us.

"Field Marshal Haynau, who is residing on tbe estate be possesses in Hungary, is accus tomed to sleep in a little room on the ground floor, in a detached building in the garden of his chateau, in the night of Monday last he was awoke bv a thick smoke, which filled his cham ber. He immediately jumped out of bed, and leaped out of the window into the garden. Some moments after all the building was in flames. A strong wind having aisen, the fire exteded to three barns filled with corn of the last harvest, and they and their contents, to gether with the building, were destroyed. No tire having been lighted in the day, it appears certain that the fire was caused by a criminal, in hope, probably, of killing the General. It has not been possible thus far to discover bim."

She sends annually 20J.000.0J0 francs worth of manufaclrea to -the various markets of the world. Jewelry and watches are smuggled into France in spite of the most strenuous ex ertions of the Customs officers. .An amusing anecdote is related of one of the cheifs of the Police, who purchased a lot of watches in Gen eva on condition that they should be delivered to him in Paris at a certain date, or the teller should forfeit the price. He set all the Custom-house officers on tbe alert, determined to catch the smugler this time. On bis arrival in Paris he found the watches on his breakfast tabl, according to agreement A sti ict in vest gat ion was made into the matter and it was found that his own servant had brought the watches with him. - ' The New Orleans Delta thns notices the re cent goal delivery at Panama: We have hitherto noticed the escape of a large number of criminals from the jail at Pan ama on the 1 1 th. This prison or calaboose, as it is called, is situated on tbe brow of a rocky precipice, overlooking the sea. The 30 prisoners who escaped dug through the thick wall of tbe calaboose in fifteen minutes after tbe jailor made his last night's round. This herculean task having been accomplished tbey descended to the beach, a distance of over six ty feet, by means of old blankets, shirts, dec, tied together. This was, indeed a most dan gerous experiment, for the breaking of tbe rope would have caused the instant death to those suspended." The remaining 30 of the 60 then conbned, feared to trust the trail ladder and remained in durance. . . Paosracrs of Canada. The public work ' of Canapa have been very successful the past year.
