France. In France The Principal Object E...
FRANCE . In France the principal object exciting attention is the position of hostility assunv-d by the Assembly towards the Ministry and ti : e President , as is indicated by the Assembly refusing to dismiss M . Yon . in comp liance with the request of the Miniate : oi the Inic-rior— -the liberation of II . Manguin by its order , and the affair of the Lu-gots d ' or . This affair of the Lungots d ' or was again the subject of a very animated scene in the As ^ mbh , arising out of the last debate . M . Daprat , on that occasion , said , in the most positive manner , that M . Baroche
had received a report , pointing out the illegality of the lottery . M . Birocbe denied ibis in the * Mouiteur' on the following morning , and M . Duprat repeated his statement in the opposition papers . M . Baroche then called the attention of the Assembly to the matter , and made a very lame defence . Duprat still repeated his statement , and at last it was said , that there was no' report' but only a Metier in the hureatt of Hie Minister , answering to the description of M . Daprn :. The Assembly showed its appreciation of this Jesuitical quibbling by passing to the order of the day hy a large majority . These squabbles are very unfavourable to the passing of the new dota ' son , which Louis Napoleon will shortlv ha compelled to apply for .
PRUSSIA . The D ' i-sden Caaferenca is the all-absorbing topic i : i Germany . As yet , however , no result has been c < mie to up to the pr £ scni time , having been occupied in the settlement of preliminary maitsrs Frequent conferences have taken place between M . de Manteuffel and Prince Schwarzenburg , and there can be no doubt that the settlement will be in accordance with the desire of Austria and Prussia , as it is not the people of Germany , but the princes , who are represented in the Conference .
INDIA . India continues perfectly tranquil throughout its whole extent . The subjugation of the Punjab is now considered to complete , that the Court of Directors bare thrown open the ranks of the army to all classes ui population , Sikhs , Hindoo ; , and Musslernans . The regiments stationed in the country of the five rivers are ordered henceforth to ha recruited wholly from the Punjab , and the measure is generally considered a politic one .
CHINA . The Chba mails arrived in Bombay oh the 24 lh of 'November . The rebellion in ibe vicinity of China had koI as yet produced any serious results , but her Majesty ' s ship Phlegethon and the United States man-of-war Marion have been moored off the factories for their protection , if required . The reports on this subject are very contradictory ; nothing seems certain concerning the acts or intentions of the icbels , excepting that they levy a fax on the tea-boa » s and other produce of the interior on its way to the Customs . It is , however , stated , and generally believed , that the Cotamisiioner Sen had attempted to effect a pacification by distributing money ( 100 , 000 dollars ) amongst them , and that 3 , 000 troops he had sent against the insurgents had fraternised with them .
UNITED STATES . Nothing of interest has taktn place in Congress-Trade seems to be in a very satisfactory condition throughout the States Jjenerallv .

The Elector Arrived At Hesse Cassel Hy S...
The Elector arrived at Hesse Cassel hy special train from Frankfort on the 2 / th ult . He entered a carriage and drove into the town . The silence which prevailed was profound . Not a shout was mixed wiUt the peal of theirumpeiers who preceded the Elector . His carriage was also preceded and followed by two squadrons of the Electoral Hussats . As the procession entered the gates there were a few feeble cheers and a large allowance of hissing .
A ver ? important decision was given on Friday week by the President of the Civil Tribunal iu France as regards the liability to arrest for debt of representatives of the people , M . Manguin having been arrested for a sum of 1 , 093 fr . 50 c , urged his nonliability to arrest as a member of the NatioHa ! Assenib ' y , and demanded to be taken en re / ere before the President of the Tribunal . The President declared that the arrest was legal , the constitution of 1848 net having reproduced the provision of the
charter of IS 30 , by which members of the Legislative body were protected from arrest during the session , and for six weeks preceding and following it . This decision caused great excitement in the Assembly , and M . de Larochejaquelin put questions to the Minister of Justice respecting the attest of M . Maaguin , aud announced that he would propose to the Assembly to order his immediate liberty . He considered that the arrest in question was a violation of the coustitution , which declared all members of the Legislature inviolable .
ill . Kouher , Minister of Justice , declared that the Assembly might make a new law to regulate such a matter in fature , but could not now interfere in the decision of a judge without establishing a dangerous precedent . The motion was carried by a large majority . A court-martial for the trial of Conraodore Jones was organised at Washington , on the 16 sh ult . He is charged with fraud , in speculating with the public money in gold dust ; with scandalous conduct towards bis subordinates , on the Pacific station ; aud with oppression , in hatming two men under an
illegal sentence by a court-martial , the penalty of death not bein ? allowed on board a ship beyond the limits of the United Stales . Commodore Jones in his answers , expressed his willingness to stand his trial on all the charges , but took exceptions to the last-mentioned . He urged that the Attorney . General had given an opinion in his favour , California having become part of the union ; and that if he had exceeded his jurisdiction his offence was not oppression but murder . He rested the justification of his conduct as Commodore of the Pacific fleet , on the ground of the frequent attempts at mutiny , in consequence of the temptations of the mines .
The President of the United States has issued a proclamation declaring that the act of Congress fixing the Texas boundary is in full force and effect . This shows that Texas acquiesces in the slavery compromise of last session . Oa the contrary , the Legislature of South Carolina has emitted a note of warlike preparation , the Senate having passed a bill for a convention , and giving 300 , 000 dollars for military purposes . It is not likely , Los-aver , th . it anything will come of this , for all the forts in the harbour of Charleston are fully manned with the troops of the central government . The recent Papal aggression is sympathised in by the gri-at hulk of the American people , and it is said that it is extremely likely that the Protestant feeling will be excited in America .
Very few educated psople belong to the American Romish church . It is almost exclusively composed of servant women and ordinary labourers . There are some who attend mass who have means and standing , but they are generally those who have acquired their property in very low occupations . A few genteel families of French and Irish descent may he found at the Roman Catholic churches , but it is from habit or family pride that thev continue
there . They do not any of them respect the Sabbath , as do the Protestants , and usuall y the after , noon and evening of the day are spent in amusements . The American people , t he Ang lo-Saxons , are souid to the core on this point ; snd while from policy , princi ple , and kind feelings they allow perfect to ' eration , they are not the least backward in commenting upon clerical absurdities , and making them the laughing stock of the public .
At a short conference which took place on the 24 th ult . it is believed the choice of a President was discussed . A great desire to avoid all scrim & nv aud to cultivate a reciprocal good understanding is said to prevail . The greatest secresy is observed in everything relating to the proceedings ; the usual attendance in the ante-chamber being dispensed with for fear of accidents . The total result will be given to the world at the close of the conferences . The rumoured pregnancy of the Q-ieen of Spain is not confirmed .
The trial of Aliais . the police-igent of the Assembly , who has gained notoriety of late by his pretended jevelaiion of a Uuonaprnisr plot to assassinate General Changaniier and M . Dupin , Present of the National assembl y , has been brought io a conclusion . The charge against him was that of having mads a calumnious accusation against the persons he had falsely indicated as having been concerned in the alleged plot . The case excited extraordinary interes * . and a vast crowd assembled at
the doors of the court , bat oaly a number ssfBdeul to fill the court was admitted . Several representatives were present , and among them MM . de Male-• rille , Piscatory , de Cbarencey , Wolowski , and Taschereiu . Numerous witnesses were examined . The tribanal , after an hoar ' s deliberation , declared

Ailats guilty of having made a calumnious complaint , mi condemned liiui to a year ' s imprisonmen t , 300 francs fine , and the costs . On Sunday the President ,, vice-presidents , secrelasies , and qucstors of the Assembly held a meeting ; o consider the letter addressed to them by the Minister of the Interior , in which he demanded the dismissal of M . Yon , the special commissary of uoiice of the A-sembly . The sitting was a long one , and the proceedings are kept secret , but the result has been announed . The meeting determined , by a majority of eight to six , that M . Yon should not be dismissed , and a letter was at once drawn up informing the Minister of the Interior of the result .
A case has been exciting great indignation in India , which has just terminated . The following are the facts : It appears that Lieut . Shelton and his wife had family disagreements , and that the father of Mrs . Shelton requested a major Bartlemau to see that L ' eut . Shelton did not ill treat his wife . Lieut . Shelton submitted to this strange iccies of guardianship , considering that the age of the major , who was forty-eight years old , was a guarantee that nothing improper would take place between him and his wife . In this he was mistaken ,
however , for be discovered a letter m the handwriting of the major to his wife of the most extravagant nature , calling her his life , soul , & c . Lieut , Shelton consequently charged him , before a courtmartial , with conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman , and some other thing ? . The court have sentenced the major to be cashiered—recommending him to the mercy of the commander-inchief , however . Sir C . Napier has very properly refused to entertain the recommendation , and the sentence will consequently be carried into effect .
At Bombay there has been some extraordinary exhibitions of the disregard of the natives fo * human life . There has been no less than nineteen deaths from violence racorded during the last month in the mortality tables , amongst which poisoning , stifling , strangling , and hacking to pieces from reli gious intolerance stand in awful and bold relief . The Belgian Senate on Saturday adopted , by twenty-three votes to eight , the bill for putting gold money out of circulation . On Monday the bill was promulgated in the ' Moniteur , ' with the King ' s sanction .
The cholera is prevalent on the Mississippi river , nearly every steamer having lost a number of passengers . The mortality is chitfly among the emigrants , who , mating in crowds , and evincing little regard to cleanliness , pay the penalty of their iticautioH . A number of the United States have already adopted the policy of the Homestead Exemption Law . Vermont lias passed an act which exempts from exfcution , net only the dwelling and the land , but the produce of the land . This is a step beyond anything yet . The principle is working well . It is reclaiming a large class of persons from idle and worthless habits , who , for fear of continued persecution from old creditors , abandoned themselves to despair .
In Hesse Cassel , the principal organ of the popular party , the ' New Hessian , ' and the ultra-democratic 'Hornet , ' have been suspended , and the editors have left Cassel . But it is probable that the former will again establish itself at Gotha , and re-appear iu the course of a few days . There appeared within the last few days in Geneva a specimen number of a journal entitled ' La "Vile Multitude , ' the special mission which is to spread in Savoy the benefit of Socialist doctrines . The chief editsr of this ultra-deraagogical journal was formerly editor of the * Peuple Souveraine ' of Lyons . We learn that , at the demand of the Sardinian counsel , the authorities have placed their seals on the offices of La Vile Multitude . ' The publication of it is thus adjourned .
The circumference of Madrid , as shown by the walls which , however , include the Retiro , the royal possession of the Casino and its gardens , and many other 1 trge open spaces , it is stated to be 47 , 197 feet . Its diameter ( north and south , ) from the gate of Santa Barbara to that of Toledo , is 9 , 760 feet ; and that east and west , from the gate of Alcala to the Portilla de la Vega ( now removed , ) is 8 . 637 feet . The actual population is computed at 240 , 000 . The Plaza del Oriente contains 580 , 000 square feet ; that before the main entrance of the palace , 223 , 000 ; and the Plaza Mayor , now Plaza de la Constitution , 149 , 000 . The largest marketplace , the Plaza de la Cebada , contains 140 , 000 square feet .
Another dreadful steamboat explosion and loss of life has taken place on the Mississippi . On Friday , the 27 th tilt ., while the Anglo-Norman was proceeding up the river from New Orleans , on a pleasure excursion , with between two and three hundred persons on board , most of them respectable citizens , her boiler exploded , and , horrible to relate , from eig hty to a hundred persons were killed , wounded or missing . The Bombay and the Bengal Railways are both progressing sathfactorily ; contracts have been concluded for the construction of forty miles of the latter , and tenders are about to be invited for from sixty io eiebtv miles more .
Sir Jemsetjee Jeejeebhoy has offered to erect a lying-in hospital at his own cost , and on ground he also g ives for the purpose , immediately adjoining his noble institution the Jemsetjee Hospital . Sir Jem setjee ' s contributions to charitable objects during the last ten years have probably more than quad rupled those of any other of the Queen ' s subjects The Austrian Ambassador at Frankfort has announced to the Electoral Minister that a- Hessian named Becker is acting as chief of a revolutionary association in Switzerland with 3 , 000 members , the committee of which furnishes them with passports , which are not only recognised by the police of GEneva , Freiburg , and " Neufchatel , but receive the official twain order to give them authority in o t her cantons .
The German governments have arranged to furnish travellers with cards in lieu of passports , which shall serve as legitimation for a stated period in all Germau states , thus obviating the necessity of obtaining a new visa on passing from one police district to another . The tyrannical measures of the Prussian ministers , in last June , burked no less than one hundred and thirty-seven journals . Poland is frequently subjected to a devastating plague amongst its horned cattle . This scourge is now raging here , and has causi d a loss of 200 , 000 beasts . Prussia keeps up a ri gid quarantine with regard to cattle passing its eastern confines . A sad storv of the disasters of war is told . A
Holstein peasant , hearing that his son lay wounded in the military hospital , sought bim out , and found that one of his arms had been amputated ; though grieved at the discovery , he sought consolation in saying , ' Well , my boy , it is a sad loss , but not so hard for you as for one who depended on his hands for subsistence . ' ' Ah , father , ' replied the son ' that ' s not the worst of it ; ' whereupon , lifting the coverlet , he showed that both his legs were gone , at which sight the old man fell down dead , and the younger one only survived the shock a few minutes . The newly-organised preventive service on the Polish confines consists entirely of Russians , all the Poles having been dismissed .
The Prussian Minister of the Home Department has decided that actors and other public performers have duties not only towards the managers with whem they make contracts , but also towards the public , which may become turbulent if wantonly disappointed in its amusements ; wherefore the police are authorised to employ coercion where performers capriciously refuse to fulfil their engagements . By a postal convention between Belgium and Sardinia , which has just been concluded , the postage of a simple letter between the two countries is fixed at 60 c . The period at which the convention is to comeiuio operation has , however , not yet been fixed .
It is reported that the Polish nobility will be ex . empted from the duty of military service , to which it bad been rigorously subjected since the Revolution Si 1831 ; and that the property of the Roman Cathoiic Church in Poland will be confiscated by the Russian government , which will pay the priests' salaries out of the public revenue . The Queen of Spain has placed a sum of 40 , 000 dollars of her privaie property at the disposal of the Home Department for the expenses of the opera , an act of lavish generosity which has been severely censured b y the King Consort and Queen Christina .
In Sweden what has been long foreseen has taken place . The equestrian order has rejected , by a majority of 316 votes to SO , the governmental project relative to the reptcsentation of the peop le , and t he order of peasants has rejected it by a majority of e / ghfy-seren to ei ghteen . The discussion on the measure was very animated , and frequentl y very warm . The Hartmannsdorff pretended that the bill would undermine the constitutional monarchy , formally declared that it would never admit the priori , plo of general elections , although it admitted that
The Elector Arrived At Hesse Cassel Hy S...
the present representative system required reforms , and promised to bring in a new bill which would be more satisfactory . The order of peasants , in adhering to the opinion of the clergy and of the equestrian order , has comp le t el y separated itself from its old ally the order of the burgeoise , and appears to wish to prolong the rupture by proposing to revise the privileges of the towns . The ' Osservatore Daltnato' quotes letters from Vergoras of the 13 th , stating that a week before the
insurants of Moslar attacked Rustan Bey , the son of Alf Pacha , who still defended the citidel within the town , called Saraj , armed with twelve guns . It adds that the assailants were repulsed with loss . The chiefs of the insurrection are three rich Turks , named Passa Bey , Agomirovic , and Cissiasic . Alj Bey had marched from "Vizina to meet the troops of the Sultan , and prepared everywhere for their accommodation ; but having reached the fert of Gliubuski , which is in the hands of the insurgents , he could proceed no farther .
The new Vizir oi Bosnia having sent his secretary to Mostar , in order to inquire whether he might pass through that town on his way to Bosnia , with a suite of only s ' xty persons , the insurgents refused , unless he was furnished with full powers to treat with them , and to remove their grievances , in which case they promised not only to receive him well , hut to obey him also . The resolution of the Vizir was not known , but it is certain that he has proceeded t o Buna , to confer with AH Pacha . The news from the Italian provinces is anything nut favourable . Conspiracies having been
discovered , and numerous arrests having been made in consequence , it is feared that the publication of the new organic laws will be delayed . Whether all those who are executed are simp ly hi ghway robbers and murderers , or whether they are guerillas , it is out of our power to say ; but it cannot be denied that powder and ball and the hangman ' s rope are commi tt ing fearful ravages in Lombardy and Venice . It appears that the governor of the prison in Paris who released XI . Mauguin on the order of M . Dupin , conveyed through one of the questors , has been suspended from his functions b y the Court which decreed the arrest for eight days .
According to the advices by theCherokee steamer , arrived at New York , with over 2 , 600 , 000 of golddust , and a fortnight ' s later intelligence from California , the cholera was raging with great violence . The deaths at Sacramento city averaged about eig hty a day . The disease also prevails at San Francisco , causing great stagnation to business . The steamer Tennessee , which left San Francisco on the 15 th of November , had arrived at Panama , with 1 , 500 , 000 dols ; and the Antelope with 150 , 000 dols in gold-dust , and a large amount in the hands of passengers , was at the port .
Business in San Francisco is stated to be at a stand-still , and that the prices of provisions are very high . Miners , it is said , have done very little all the dams having been carried away . Improve raents are proceeding rapidly . The California papers mention the fact that agriculturists were flourishing , and that many persons had begun to cultivate in consequence . The rainy season had not commenced . The Neapolitan government at the present moment is in a state of alarm , knowing that a considerable number of ' addresses' have entered the kingdom , which papers are supposed to emanate from Mazziui . They appear to be similar to that circulated in Leghorn , Genoa , and Rome . Some arrests have taken place on this account , and the activity of the police is , if possible , greater than
ever . The state trials in Naples have occupied much public attention during the last few days . The court has presented a scene of excitement hitherto unknown , owing to the dignified tone of the lawyers who are now defending the prisoners , and placing the narative of the government atiti > constitutioi > al intrigue in categorical form , which presents a picture of immorality on the part of the executive which is truly deplorable . Letters from Belogna state that on the 18 th ult . a party of Austrian soldiers had a skirmish with nine banditti , headed by 11 Passatore himself . A soldier was killed , and another wounded in the contest ; the benditti viere , however , put to flight , after the loss of one man , named Land , on whose bod y articles of value were found .
A Leghorn letter of the 24 th ulf . announces the arrival there of a large number of Swiss recruits , on their way to Naples . Upwards of 2 , 000 are said to have passed in the csurse of November , A rumotir being current at Pisa that the constitutional parly intended to make a demonstration , the authorities have thought proper to cause numerous piquets of soldiers to parade the town dail y . The government of Munich has by its blind zeal against the press incurred a serious defeat . The
editor of the ' Eilboten , ' who was prosecuted for an attack on the Diet , which was construed into contempt of the Bavarian government , has been aoquitted . The law of the press makes not the slightest allusion to the Diet , or of offences against its authority . The defeat of the government is the more keenly felt , inasmuch as it has identified itself ostensibly , in this instance , with the Echenheimgassen Club . The jury who acquitted the accused was , as indeed all our juries are , composed of the high tax paying and conservative class .
In the' Stutgardt Anzeiger ' of the 28 th ult . there is a royal ordinance against the liberty of the nresr . The chief clauses of this ordinance are : —Every paper or publication must be signed by the editor , who must be a citizen , of twenty-five years of age at least , and have his permanent residence in the country . Any one who has been condemned to any punishment cannot be an editor . And , after anypenal sentence has been passed on an editor as such , he cannot again assume editorial functions before the expiration of six months .
According to the latest intelligence it appears that M . Ton , the special commissary of police of the Assembl y of France , has volun t arily resi gned his post .
The New Houses Of Parliament.—A Great Nu...
The New Houses of Parliament . —A great number of workmen are busily engaged in preparing tho Conference-room and Library of the New Houses of Parliament . The Conference-room , where an appointed number of the Lords and Commons meet to settle any matter which may bo in dispute betwixt the two Houses , is an elegant chamber of splendid proportions , with a roof richly carved . In the compartments between the raised carved work ornamental paper of various patterns and colours has been put up , in order to enable Mr . Barry and his assistants to determine what colours and designs shall eventually be adopted in ornamenting the chamber . Proceeding from the Conference-room through three other rooms attached
to the House of Lords , tho Library of the House of Commons , consisting of a suit of three rooms , is entered . These apartments are fitted up with treat taste and simplicity . Tho lower shelves are closed ones , slightly ornamented , and the others are subdivided into compartments capable of holding from five to ten volumes each , The floor of the rooms is of old English o a k , laid down in squares of from one to two feet , and the two rooms are to bo warmed by pipes placed in the recesses of the windows , and arc constructed sifter the mode adopted in steam engines , iu which tho greatest possible amount of heat can be distributed from an apparatus occupying tbo smallest space . The Committeerooms attached to the House of Lords are also in a stateof great forwardness , and when finished will present a very elegant and graceful appearance .
Mr . Barry has , as we are informed , given strict injunctions to the workmen not to admit strangers nntil the chambers are completely finished ; but the curious , in such matters manage , notwithstanding , to have a peep at the preparations which are being executed . In tho course of a couple of months it is expected that most of the committeerooms of the Lords , the library of the Commons , and the Conference room will be finished . There are two doors leading into the Conferencc-ioom , the one being for the entrance of the Lords and the other for tho Commons ; and during the conference their lordships stand on one side and the Commons on the other side of the room . In a few days additional hands are to be engaged in preparing the House of Lords and tho chambers attached to it , for the opening of Parliament , which is expected to be done by her Majesty in person . — Globe ,
ItEDl ' CHO . N OP I . NCOMX TAX—IMPORTANT TO Texasi Farmers . — -An application has been made by the Income Tax Commissioners for the Yeovil division to the Board of Inland Revenue , to ascertain whether they ought to make any reduction in the amount of income tax assessed on tenant farnn rs in cases where their rents had been reduced ; and the answer received from the Board is to the effect that , irf all cases where there has been a bona fide reduction of rent , there might be a reduction of the
income tax m the same relative proportion . The tax must be assessed on the net amount of rent actually paid , or for which the tenant is reall y liable , and not on the nominal amounts at which the farm is rented . It is hig hl y important to the tenant farmers of the kingdom that this should be widely known , for that which is done in one district is of course applicable to the country at large . We hope , therefore , that our contemporaries gener all y will take cognizance of this circumstance and make it known to their readers . — Sherdorm Jmmal ,

HEALTH WHERE 'TIS SOUGHT ! HOLLO WAY'S PILLS . Cure of a Disordered Liver and Stomach , tvhen in a most hojieless state . Extract of a Letter from Mr . Matthew Harvey , of Chapel Hall , Aiidrie , Scotland , dated the 15 th of January , 1850 . Sir , —Your valuable pills have been the means , with God ' s blessing , of restoring me to a state of perfect health , and at a time when I thought I was on the brink of the grave . I had consulted several eminent doctors , who , after doing what they could for me , stated that they considered my case as hopeless . I ought to say that Iliad been suffering from a liver and stomach complaint of long standing , which during the last two years got so much worse , that every one considered my condition as hopeless . I , as a last resource , got a box of your pills , which soon gave relief , and by persevering in their use for some weeks , together with rubbing night and morning jour Ointment over my chest and stomach , aud right side , I have by their means alone got completely cured , and to the astonishment of myself and everybody who knows me . —( Signed ) Matthew ] Ia « - vet . —To Professor Hollow ay .
