The Difficulty of a second landing of tha rrcacn. A Cabinet Council r& eld on Sunday at Fontainebleau, when Mei.cin affairs were again discussed. . The Emperor appears quite resolved to send, out reinforcements sufficient to foice the way to the capital against every obstacle. The point of disembarkation is the great difficulty. To land at Vera Cruz is to expose hundreds to certain death. Strangers coming even from Havana and West India islands are liable to infection, and at this Bea on those who do no more than pass through the town have died of vellow fever on the road to , Mexico. Tampico, which is in a healthier situation and an excellent port, has been spoken of a the lunding place; but the difficulties of tie ground cn Ue road to Mex ico are much greater for an army. The Subject Debated In the French Leg- aiaiureMapeecn oi xu. jsici r tvre. During the discussion on extraordinary cred its in the Chamber of Deputies of France, on tie 26th of Jine, M. Jules Favre censured the expedition to Mexico, and requested explana tions, w men . ne said public opinion awaited with impatience. HeTecalled the origin of the expedition, and cited the convention of London, demitting its extent. M. Favre also examined the phases of the expedition, the convention of Soledad, and tha councils of the plenipotentiaries of the three Powers, which finally led to a rupture. : M. Jules x avre main tained that France ought not to support Al- monie, who had just revolutionized Mexico. lie. alluded to the attair of the Jecknr loan. and regretted that the government appeared to disdain the calumnies which had been dif fused abroad on this subject. . J J... 1 hope, continued he, that f ranee will 'not persist in claiming that 75,000,000 francs, the fruit of scandalous speculations. Things have reacted a point in which it n necessary that the resolutions to be taken should be explained. To my view the sole course to take compatible wun tne interest ana nonor or. me country is to treat with Mexico and withdraw. (Mur murs.) It is easy to justify this opinion. The contrary ono rests on generous illusions or a disastrous predetermined course. We have not to avenge a defeat in Mexico. Our soldiers in the midst of insurmountable natural diffi culties, have valiantly carried ihe name and nonor of France, and they can return to their country which attaches to generous devoted- ness aid duty loyally accomplished. . To ad vance would be a disastrous ' enterprise. . We should be obliged to maintain the govern ment which we might establish by an army of 15,000 men. The consequence of the policy we have followed in Mexico have been to com promise our relations with several Powers. . M. J ules Favre concluded by expressing a hope that France will not be engaged in com promising enterprises without consulting the Chamber of Deputies.' - The sitting was then adjourned, and on its reassembling M. Billault commenced his re ply, - IT .''- ... . nepiy oi tne irrencn minister. . On the same evening, in the Corps Legislatif, M. Billault, at the conclusion of M. Favre'a discourse, delivered his expected speech on the Mexican expedition. - ;-. ' Ihe minister commenced by describing the ansrchy which has prevailed in Mexico for the last twenty-five yeaft, and continued: It was the robbery, pillage and assassination . of strangers that dete-mir.- d the three powers to carry oat tne expedition. . France and Eng land were not hostile to the candidature of the Archduke Maximilian if the Mexicans chose him voluntarily. ' Spain would have preferred a Bourbon prince. M. Billault established a difference between the ..withdrawal of the Spaniards and thkt of the English, who were always adverso to an expedition into the inte rior. ; lie censured negotiations from which it was impossible to obtain any result, and stated that the Emperor was compelled to davow the convention of . Soledad as contrary to the honor of France. The explanations given to AL Barrot gave ground to hope that Spain had the same policy in Mexico aa France, viz: the establishment in Mexico oi sucn a government, either a republic or a monarchy, as the Mexi cans may wish. M. Billault stated that, not withstanding the momentary disagreement be tween thi three governments, they remained on good 'terms," and quoted as a proof of this the recent eloquent speecn oi iiora maimers ton. The minister paid a high tribute to the char acter of Admiral J arien oe ia ixraviere, wno had repeatedly said that France wished tor neither a monarchy nor a repuDiic, mil simpiy a good government. .M. Billault maintained that it was incorrect that France had sent Al monte' to excite a civil war. He was only to arrive in the xity "of Mexico when the ballot had been opened to consult the national will. He arrived in Mexico under the protection of our flag, and committed no hostile act before the rupture of negotiations.

' From the London Times, Jane 26. - -The war in America has been a war of gun boats. It is by the aid of these vessels that the Federals have obtained an ascendency over the Confederates at all points of the coast and along the banks of all the great rivers. On the Mississippi the opportune arrival of a couple of gunboats saved the Northern arms from a terrible disaster, and nothing probaby has so effectually impeded McClellan's recent operations as the inability of his gunboat flotilla to force a passage to Richmond. Tha last de mand made by the federal government on the country . has been a demand ' for fifteen new gunboats, and the Americans have boasted that in a short time their new navy will be the most powerful navy in the world. - As far as coast and river service is concerned, this esti mate is, perhaps, not ill feunded ; and a propo sition is now before the Legislature which will open to these vessels a wider field of action than anybody has hitherto conceived. It is act'-ally proposed to complete an entire and unbroken circuit of inland navigation through the enor mous territories of the American Btatea. .Ves sels are to be enabled to pass from the waters, of the Atlantic into the heart of the continent and to find their way out into the gulf of Mex ico. The Hudson River in the east is to be connected with the Mississippi in the west, so that the vast tract of country enclosed will be surrounded by water like a prodigious island. But this plan has something more in it than a mere improvement in communications. Its immediate object is essentially military. .' The Mississippi on the one side and the Hudson on the other are to be connected with the great lakes of the North, - On the shores of those lakes lies the British territory of Canada, and it is avowedly, for the purpose of insuring a superiority of force on these important waters that the works in question are o be under taken. - :,;..... . The Americans are not absolutely excluded from these. lakes. They have a system of canals by which access is .gained to the lakes; but these canals being constructed for purposes of traffic only, are not large enough for the passage of gun boats. The first proposal, therefore, is to enlarge the locks of the Erie and Oswego canal, so that vessels of war may be enabled to get through, and by ttese means the Hudson river would be at once connected with the lakes. Mr. Ericsson, the builder of the Monitor, has- been consulted on the sub ject, and has specified the dimensions which should be given to the locks in order to admit gunboats of his model. An estimate of cost has also been framed, and it is computed that the work may be performed for about 700, 000. But this is -only one-half of the scheme. A narrow and shallow channel, embracing the small lake of St. Clair, unites the waters of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron with those of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. That chan nel might easily be stopped, and it has on that account , been proposed- to open an independ ent access to Lakes Huron and Michigan from the Gull of Mexico, through the Mississippi and, Illinois rivers. Thus in the event of a contest on the lakes, naval . expeditions could be dispatched to those waters at once from New York and New Orleans, and if the St. Clair was open a gunboat fleet could sail right round the chief portion of American terri. tory. - i . . .. : It is not improbable that the Federal gov ernment may discern some domestic advan tages in the scheme thus opened : but it is pro posed and recommended exclusively with ref erence to a Canadian war, and is, indeed, de signated as a measure of "national defensa." The object ia to provide iacilities for throwing a powerful force on to the waters of the lakes in as short a time as possible,' and this object might, be attained, it is said, as regards tb two eastern lakes, within a single yeai. The " execution of the plan would un doubtedly modify the relative positions of Great Britain and America on the Cana dian frontiers, but ', we do not know that anything more can be said on tae point. The treaty of Ghent would not close these ca nals to the Americans any more than it closes the St. Lawrence to u; in fact, the Federals would probably aay that the new project is required to put them on a level with ourselves. The chief security of Canada will be found, not in trontier arsenals or lortresses, but in tha spirit with which its population ia animated. The period of suspense which followed on the Trent affair disclosed to tae Americans the unwelcome and. apparently surprising fact, that Canadians ot all classes and parties were resolved to bear the brunt of unequal war rather than be absorbed in the great republic. We tear that U can not be assumed that a taste of war will leave the Americans with a desire for peace. It seems, on the contrary, a if they were reconciled to all the evils which war brings in its train, and as if thsy preferred military glory, with all its costs, to tranquility and ease. Still it will undoubtedly be -felt that to attempt the conquest of a Lardy and courageous people is a very different thing trom annexing a willing province, xnelfed erals, even if they thoul'4 prevail over the Con federates, will infallibly mscci er that rebellious subjects are more troublesome than indepen dent neighbors, and that . it will be hardly worth their while to repeat in the North an attempt which has cost them so dearly in the South. While it was believed that Canada- wanted only an opportunity to become put of the Lnion it was natural enough for Unionist statesmen to speculate on the chances of the acquisition, but now that the feeling of the C nadians has been shown, these speculations can find no place. The Americans will prob ably think twice before they attack Canada, and they may be perfectly assured thai we have not the remotest intention of attacking them. They can build as many gunboats as they please, but we think it would best consist with the good sense aa well as the nnancial ad van tage of both countries if the understanding which has hitherto so successfully prevailed respecting the neutrality of the Lakes ' should be left undisturbed. : . . , ' ,r- . jFrom Carthagena.

' Great Britain. In the House of Commons, on the 23d tilt- the long expected debate upon the subject of fortifications took place. Sir'; GrC. Lewis opened the proceedings by moving a resolu- tion in ravor oi the appropriation or a further sum of 1,200,000, to be raised in funds, for . ". .. m. t the further prosecution of the plans of the Defense Commissioners. He forestalled some part of the opposition by announcing that the works atbpithead were definitely discontinued till the spring, and would not be resumed without the express sanction of the House of Commons. He entered at length - into an analysis of the army estimates of the govern ment ; and, as regards the question of torts versps ships, be contended that-' subsequent events in America must have .modified the anti-fortification opinions based upon the re sult of the fight between the Monitor, and the Merrimac. , ' " Mr. Bernal Osberne condemned the policy of the Government at great length, and stated that he for one saw no reason to change his mind about the teaching of American events, for at New Orleans and on the Mississippi it had been fully proved that fortifications were tutile to arrest the passage of strongly armed ships. ; He made some strong remarks against the Armstrong guns, and contended, that the only effective gun was still the old b8-pounder lie coneluded by ottering :. the - following amendment. "That, considering the changes and im provements now in progress affecting the sci ence of attack and defense, it is not at present expedient to proceed with the construction of the proposed iorts on tne snoais at pitneaa, or the additional defenses at Portsmouth, Ply mouth and Dover, recommended by the Com missioners appointed to examine the defenses of the Kingdom ; and that in any general sys tem of national defense, this House is of opin ion that the navy should be regarded as the arm on which this country must mainly de- Den d." Sir j. Jjewis immediately replied mat mis would not establish' any decision ' whatever, and asked how the navy ruld be depended upon " if its dockyards were liable to destruc tion."

' After a few other speeches, . ; j " :. '.J Lord Palmerston addressed ma ttouse, pleading generally for the adoption of these plans which government bad at much expense and with the most impartial deference to the highest scientific authority, obtained. Mr. D Israeli then spoke, and at his sugges tion all further discussion was postponed till the various stages of the bill. was discussed Mr. Osborne withdrawing nis motion.

V ' The Paris Consiitutkmnel announces that the recognition of Italy by Russia has been offici ally communicated to the Turin government. ' 1 PARIS CORRESPOSDKSCE. Paris, June 2. All f robability of a com bined intervention or offer of mediation on the part of England and France is gon ttDd the prospect of any such absurd proceeding on the part of the Emperor alone has also abont dis appeared. ' -i v. . The check which the French troops met be fore Puebla, and which revealed the fact that tbey were not to, have everything their own way on their triumphant march to the Mexi can capital, has been the means of turning the attention of the French government, -for the moment at least, away from its other schemes and concentrating it entirely upon Mexico, where it is determined 'the honor of -the French arms" shall be sustained. ' - . It now seems to be pretty definitely set tled that the command of the new expedition will be given to General Foreyr and that Ad miral Jurien de la Graviere is to return and re main in command of the fleet upon the Mexi can and American roast. The expedition, it is said, is to take its departure in three convoys, composed aa follows: To-day (June 24) the vessels of war, L'Imperial, Commandant Mar tin, and L'Eylau, Commandant Durand. St. Amand, and the transports L'Finistere and L'Ariege, will leave Toulon for Algiers, where they will embark two battalions of Zouaves, with a colonel and bat'and a squadron of spahis and a battery of rifled cannon. On the 1st of July the vessels of war Le Soverain, Commandant. Knietaud; Le St, Louis, Com mandant Housswit ; the steam frigate Le Lab rador, Commandant D'Alteyrac, and the steam transport La Mayenne, Commandant Joubert, will embark at Toulon the 20th bat talion of chasseurs a-pied, the 51st and 52d of the line, a company of engineers and a battery of rifled cannon all forming eleven superior officers, one hundred and ten officers, three thousand nine hundred men and three hun dred horses. This is a brigade which has iust been relieved at Rome. The third departure will be on the 8th of July, when the vessels of war, La Fontenoy, Com. Sawvan: Le Prince Jerome, Commandant de Leotard; Lie Fleur- us, Uommandant Beleguie, and La Navarin, Commandant Jardieu, will leave Toulon for Oran, in Algerie, where they will embark about 3,000 men and horses The whole ex pedition will thus consist of more than ten thousand men, two-thirds of whom, it will be seen, are drawn from the hot rgion of Alge rie, where they are supposed to have been, at least partially, innnred to the kind of weather they may expect in Mexico in August and September. , , . , . - Ihe Paine, ia speaking of the Corwin trea ty, a synopsis of which is given in the Fng- litb. papers, thinks that "President Lincoln will understand that such a grave matter may produce enormous complications in Europe, and he will hesitate before . having it ratified by Congress." " ;; ; . . A funny incident occurred in the senate on Saturday. The Marquis de Boissy called the attention of the body to the fact that a pla card, on which was printed, "Great Attrac tion," was posted over the dead walls of Lon don, and in the course of his remarks, in which ha, stated this tact as an exhibition of the lU feeling of England against France, he charged the government of the former with perndy and bad faith in Its course upon the -Mexican question. ; The cream of .the joke is that the placard is only an "advertising dodge ' of some -astute show man or clothing vender, wno took advantage of the excitement in relation to Mexico to call attention to his wares. - V" ' ;: It is said that Slidell is beginning to be afflicted with the same malady which troubled Thomas Butler King and mast of his corres pondents, and which has been fo" some time an epidemic among the secessionists in Paris. When he came here he expected to be "recog nized" in a few weeks, and , only, brought money enough to last him a few months, and which, on account of the difficulties of trans mission, or the high rate of exchange, or per haps the difficulty of "making a raise" on his Louisiana property, he has not added to re cently.,. At any rate he is about retrenching, and in the fall intends leaving his magnificent apartments in the Champs Elysees for more modest and cheaper ones on a neighboring by-street. . . , .. j The French Naval Demonstration In the '..-:"..J (--j : Gulf. v ; Ttmlcm rjane SO) correspondence of the London Times.l . I may be permitted to say that I know not at what end to begin to describe the more than ordinary activity displayed in this port in ex ecuting the commands of the Minister of Ma rine. - He desires that the first division with reinforcements for Mexico shall Bail on the 23d of June, and if the ships do not weigh anchor on that day it will certainly not be the fault of the naval authorities. . We are be ginning to comprehend, from the thousands of dispatches which nave succeeded eacn otner night and day for the last forty-eight hours, that the expedition is to sail in three divisions, which will comprise seven screw ships-of-the- hne and as manv frisrattt or large transports, I have only occasion to mention one fact in order to give you an idea of the activity which prevails. W bile the ships-of-tbe-iine imperial and St. Louis were approaching their anchor ing ground, and were still under steam, light ers were sent alongside o'lhem and they began to land their gnns and a sufficient number of officers and seamen to navigate two more snips. In the course of twelve hours all was conclud ed, and half the crew of the Impertal were transferred to the JTontenoy, and bait the crew of the St. Louis to the Souverain. Each ship is to have on board two captama; lour iieuten ants and 480 men. There are not sufficient surgeons to be procured. - A dispatch ; from Bastin announces that the steam cutter Ay erne, of 120 horse power, was forced to take shelter in that port from a hurricane on the night of the 18th. This news did not astonish us, for the mistral - baa-been- blowing with great vio lence- for the last five days, and while a dis patch informs us that it is blowing fresh from the northeast in the Gulf of Genoa, there is a hurricane from the northwest in the Gulf of Lyons. : It is said that the Fontenoy is to re ceive a general officer on board, but his name has not transpired.' It is further reported this morning that the screw ship-of-the-lme Casti glione, is also' to be recalled from Algiers to convev troops to .siexico. , - ' -- - -. ... .... ...-: I All Honor to a Kalamaaoo Printer.
