France. In France The Principal Object T...
FRANCE . In France the principal object txciltag _attevrtuvn is the position of hostility _assumed hy tha Assembly toward ; the Ministry and the President , as is indicated bv the Assembly refusing to dismiss M . Yon , in compliance with the request of the Minister of the Interior—tbe _libaration of M . Mauguin by its order , and the affair of the _Lu-igols d ' uT . This affair of the Lungots _d'or was a _^ ain tlie _subject of a verv animated scene in the Assembly , arising out of the last debate . XI . Daprat _, on that occasion , said , in the most positive manner , that M . _Baroche had received a rpport , _pointing out the illegality ot
the lottery . XI . Baroche denied this m the' ilonileur' on the following morning , and XI . Duprat repeated hi ; statement in the apposition papers . M . Barcche then caller ! the attention o tbe Assembl y to the matter , and made a very lame defence . Daprat still repeated bis statement , and at last it was said , that there was no report' but onl y a 'letter' in the bureau ofthe . llmister , answeriug to tbe descrip tion of XI . Duprat . The Assembl y showed its appreciation of this Jesuitical quibbling by passing to the order of the day by a large majority . These squabbles are very unfavourable to the passing of the new dotation , which Louis Napoleon will shortly be compelled to apply for .
PRUSSIA . The Dresden Conference is the all-absorbing topic i . _i Germany . As yet , however , no result has _bten come to up to the present lira ? , having heen occupied in the settlement , of preliminary matters . Frequent conferences have taken p lace between XI . de _Xlauteufiel and Prince _Schvrarzenburg , 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 , hut the princes , * svho are represented in the _Conference .
_1 _XDIA . India continues perfectly tranquil throughout its whole extent . The subjugaibn of the Punjabis now considered so comp lete , that the Court of Directors have thrown open the ranks of the array to ail classes oi population , Sikhs . Hindoos , and _Mus-Eiemans . The regiments stationed in the country of tbe five rivers are ordered _henceforth to be recruited wholly from th « i _Punjab , and the measure is _seneral _' _-f considered a politic one .
CHINA . The China mails arrived in Bombay on the 2 Itb of November . The rebellion ia the vicinity of China had not as yet produced any serious results , but her XIajesty ' _s ship Phk _gethon and the United States man-of-war XIariiro bave heen moored off the factories for their protection , if required . The reporis on this subject are very contradictory ; nothing seems certain concerning the acts or intentions of the rebels , excepting that they levy a tax on ihe tea-boats and other produce of the interior on its vtay to the Customs . It is , however , stated , and generally believed , tbat the _Commisiioner Seu had attempted to efftct a pacification b y 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 bas _taktu p lace in Congress * Trade seems io be in a very satisfactory condition throughout the _Siatea getierallv .

The Elector Arrived At Hesse Cassel B Y ...
The Elector arrived at Hesse Cassel b y special ( rain from Frankfort on tbe 27 th ult . He entered a carriage and drove into the town . The silence which prevailed was profound . Not a shout was mixed with the peal of the trumpeters who preceded tbe Elector . His _carrijgc was also preceded and followed by two squadrons of the Electoral Hussars . As the procession entered the gates there were a few feeble cheers and a large allowance of hissing .
A very important decision was given on Friday week by the President of the Civil Tribunal in France as regards the liability to arrest for debt of representatives of the people . M . _Mauguin having been arrested for a sum of 1 , 093 fr . 50 c ., urged bis nonliability to arrest as a _member of the National Assembly , and demanded to be taken en refere before the President of the Tribunal . The President declared that the arrest was legal , the constitution of 181 S not having reproduced the provision of the
charter of 1830 , hy which members of the Legislative bod y were protected from arrest during the session , aud 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 arrest of M . Mauguin , and announced tbat be would propose to the Assembly to order bis immediate liberty . He considered that the arrest in question was a violation of the constitution , which declared all members of the _Legislature inviolable .
M . Rouher , Minister of Justice , declared : hat the Assembly mi ght make a new law to regulate such a matter in future , but conld not now interfere in the decision of a judge without establishing a _daneerous precedent . The motion was carried by a large majority . A court-martial for the triai of Commodore Jones was organised at Washington , on the 16 th ult . He is charged with fraud , in speculating with tbe public money in gold dust ; with scandalous conduct towards his subordinates , oa the Pacific station ; and with oppression , in banging two men under an
illegal sentence hy a caurt-mattial , the penalty of death not bein g- allowed on board a ship beyond the limits of the United States . 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 op inion in his favour , California having become part of the union ; and that if he had exceeded bis jurisdiction his offence was not oppression but murder . He rested tbe justification of his conduct as Commodore of the Pacific n _- * ef , on the ground oi 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 fast session . On the contrary , the Legislature of South Carolina has emitted a note of warlike preparation , the Senate having passed a hill for a convention , and giving 300 , 000 dollars for military purposes . It is not likel y , however , that anything will come of this , for ail the foris in the harbour of Charleston are f : % manned with the troops ofthe centra ! government . The recent Papal aggression is sympathised in by the great bulk of the American people , and it is said that it is extremely likel y that the Protestant feelin ? will be excited in _America .
"Very lev : educated people belong to tbe 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 be found at the Roman Catholic churches , but it is from habit or family pride that they continue there . They do not any of them respect the Sab . bath , as do the _Protestanis , and usually the _aftt-rn _=-on and evening of the day are spent in amusements . The American people , the Anglo-Saxons , are sound to the core on this point ; and white from policy , princi p le , and kind feelings they allow perfect to _' _eration , they are not the least backward in commenting upon clerical _absurdities , and making them the _iaughing-stock of the public .
At a short conference which took p lace on the _2-i'h ult . it is believed the choice t . f a President was discussed . A great desire to avoid all acrimony and to cultivate a reciprocal good understanding is said to prevail . The greatest seeresy is observed in _everythin- ; relating to tbe proceedings ; the usual attendance in the ante-chamber being dispensed with for fear of accidents . Tbe total result will be g iven to tbe world at the close of the conferences . The rumoured pregnancy of the _Q-ieen of S pain is not confirmed .
The trial of Allais , the _police-sgent of the Assembly , who has gained notoriety of late by his pretended revelation of a Buouaprrtist plot to _asssssi sate General Changarnier and M . Dup in , Pre ideut of the National assembly , bas been brought to a conclusion . The charge against hue was that of having made a calumnious accusation against the persons he had falsely indicated as having been concerned in the alleged plot . The case excited extraordinary interest , and a vast crowd assembled at the donrsof the court ; hut onl y a number sufficient to fill the court was admitted . Several representatives were present , and among them MM . de Male-• rille , Piscatory , de Charencey , Wolowski , and Taschereau . Numerous witnesses were examined . The _tribaal _, after an hoar ' s deliberation , declared j
The Elector Arrived At Hesse Cassel B Y ...
_Ailais guilty of having made a calumnious complaint , and condemned him to a year ' s imprisonment , 300 francs fine , and the costs . On Sunday the President , vice-presidents , secretaries , and _qusstors of the Assembly held a meeting io 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 police of the A'sembly . The sitting was a long one , and the proceedings are kept secret , hut thft mult has been acnouned . The meeting determined , by a majority of ei ght to six , that M . Yon should not be dismissed , and a letter was at once drawn up informinj * the Minister of the Interior of the result .
A case has been exciting great indignation in India , which has just terminated . Tbe 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 _Bartleman to see that Lieut . Shelton did not ill treat h ' wife . Lieut . Shelton submitted to this strange species of guardianship , considering that the age of tbe major , who was forty-eight years old , was a guarantee that nothing improper would take place between hira and his wife . In this he was mistaken ,
however , for he discovered a letter in the _handwriting of the major to bis 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 things . The court have sentenced the major to be cashiered—recommending him to the mercy of the commander-inebief , 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 ths natives fer human life . There bas been no less than nineteen deaths from violence racorded during the last month in the mortality tables , amongst whicb poisoning , stifling , strangling , and hacking to pieces from reli gious intolerance stand in awful and hold 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 hill was promulgated in the ' Moniteur , ' with the King ' s sanction .
The cholera is prevalent on the Mississi ppi river , nearl y every steamer having lo .-t a number of y as seugTS . The mortality is chiefly among the emigrants , who , roofing in crowds , and evincing little regard to cleanliness , pay the penalty of tbeir incaution . A nnmber of the United States have alread y adopted the policy of the Homestead Exemption Law . Vermont has _passed an act which exempts from execution , net only the dwelling and the land , bat 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 tbe ultra-deraocratic 'Hornet , ' have been suspended , and the editors have left Cassel . But it is probable tbat 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 editer of this ultra-demagogical journal was formerly editor of the ' Peuple Souveraine' of Lyons . We learn tbat , at the df raand of the Sardinian counsel , the authorities have placed their seals on the offices of' La Vile Multitude . ' The publication of i i is thus adjourned . *
The circumference of Madrid , as shown b y the walls which , however , in elude the Retiro , the royal possession of the Casino and its gardens , and many otherlirgeopen spaces , it is stated tobe 47 , 197 feet . Its diameter ( north and south , ) from the gate of Santa Barbara to tbat of Toledo , is 9 , 760 feat ; and tbat east aud west , from the gate of Alcala to the Portilla de la Vega ( now removed , ) is 8 , 637 feet . The actual population is computed at 210 , 000 . Tbe Plaza del Oriente contains 580 , 000 square feet ; tbat 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 lias taken place on the Mississi ppi . On Friday , the 27 th ult ., whi'e the Anglo-Norman was proceeding up the river from Near Orleans , on a p leasure excursion , with between two and three hundred persons on board , most of them respectable citizens , her boiler exp loded , and , horrible to relate , f rom ei ghty to a hundred persons were killed , wounded or missing . The Bombay and the Bengal Railways are both _progressing satisfactorily ; contracts have been concluded for tbe construction of forty miles of tbe latter , and tenders are about to be invited for from sixty to eighty miles more .
Sir Jemsetjee Jeejeebhoy has offered to erect a lying-in hospital at his own cost , and on ground he also gives for the purpose , immediately adjoining bis noble institution the Jemsetjee Hospital . Sir Jem setjec ' _s contributions to charitable objects during the last ten years have probably more than quad rup led those of any other of the Queen ' s subjects The Austrian Ambassador at Frankfort has announced to the Electoral Minister tbat 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 onl y recognised by tbe police of Geneva , Freiburg , aud _Neufchatel , bat receive ( he official visa in order to give them authority in other 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 aud thirty-seven journals . Poland is frequently subjected to a devastating plague amongst its horned cattle . This scourge is now raging here , and has caus < d a loss of 200 , 000 beasts . Prussia keeps up a ri g id quarantine with regard to cattle passing Us eastern confines .
A sad story of the disasters of war is told . A Holstein peasant , hearing tbat his son lay wounded in the military hospital , sought him out , and found that one of his arms had been amputated ; thoug h 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 , ' rep lied the son , * that's not the worst of it ; ' whereupon , lifting the coverlet , he showed that both bis legs were gone , at which sight tbe old man fell down dead , and the younger one onl y 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 ha * decided that actors and other public performers have duties not onl y towards the managers with whom tbey 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 Bel g ium and Sardinia , -which has jast been concluded , the postage of a simple letter between the two countries is fixed at 60 e . The period at which the con - _vention is to come into operation bas , however , not yet been fixed .
It is reported that the Polish nobility will be exempted from the duty of military service , to which it had been rigorously subjected since the Revolution of 1831 ; and tbat tbe property of the Roman Catholic 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 p laced a sum of 40 , 000 dollars « . f her private property at the disposal of the Home _Department for the expenses of the opera , au act of lavish _generosity which has been severely censured by the King Consort and Queen Christina .
In Sweden what has been long foreseen has taken place . Tbe equestrian order has rejected , by a majority of 316 votts to 80 , the governmental project relative to the _representation of the peop le , and the order of peasants has rejected it b y a majority of ei ghty-seven to eighteen . The discussion on the measure was very animated , and frequentl y very warm . The _Hartmannadorff pretended that the bill would undermine tbe constitutional monarchy , formally declared that it would never admit the principle of general elections , « lthou ? h it admitted that
The Elector Arrived At Hesse Cassel B Y ...
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 tbe opinion of the clergy and of the equestrian order , has comp letely separated itself from its old allv the ordet of the burgeoise , and appears to wish to prolong the rupture by _proposing to revise the privileges of the towns . The ' _Osservatore Dalmato' quotes letters from _YeTgotas ol the . Vivh , staling ' . " am , a week before the
insurgents of Mostar attacked I ' _usiati Bey , the son of Alf Pacha , wbo still defended the citidd within the town , called Saraj , armed with twelve guns . It adds thaithe assailants were repulsed with loss . The chiefs of the insurrection are three rich Turks , named Passa Bey , Agomirovic , and _Ciesissic . _Alj Bey had marched from Vizina to meet the troops of the Sultan , and prepared everywhere for their ac commodation , * hut having reached the fort of Gliuhuski , which is in the hands of the insurgents , he could proceed no farther .
The new Vizir of Bosnia having sent his secretary to Mostar , in order to inquire whether he might pass through tbat town on his way to Bosnia , with a suite of only sixty persons , the insurgents refused , unless he was furnished with full powers to treat with them , and to remove their grievances , iu whicb case they promised not only to receive him well , but to obey him also . The resolution of the Vizir was uot known , but it is certain that he bas proceeded to Buna , to confer with AU Pacha . The news from the Italian provinces is anything but favourable . Conspiracies having been
discovered , and numerous arrests having been made in consequence , it is feared tbat the publication of the new organic laws will be delayed . Whether all those who are executed are simply 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 committing fearful ravages in Lombardy and Vi _* nice . It appears tbat the governor of the prison in Paris who released M . Mauguin or . the order of M . Dup in , conveyed through one of the _questors , has been suspended from his functions by the Court which decreed the arrest for eight days .
According to ihe advices by the Cherokee steamer , arrived at New York , with over 2 , 000 , 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 eighty 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 tobe at a
stand-still , and that the prices of provisions are very hi g h . Miners , it is said , have done very little all the dams having been carried away . Improve ments are proceeding rap idl y . Trie 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 king dom , which papers are supposed to emanate from Mazzini . They appear to be similar to tbat circulated in Leg horn , 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 p lacin g the narative of the government anti-constitutioral intrigue in categorical form , which presents a picture of immorality on the part of the executive _nhicb is trul y deplorable . Letters from Belogna state that on the 18 th ult . a party of Austrian soldier ' s had a skirmish with nine banditti , beaded by II Passatore himself . A soldier was killed , and another wounded in the contest ; the benditti were , however , put to flight , after the loss of cne man named Lami , on whose body articles of value were found .
A Leghorn letter of the 24 th ult . 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 rumour being current at Pisa tbat 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 ofthe Bavarian government , has been acquitted . Tbe law of the press makes not tbe sli ghtest allusion to the Diet , or of offences against its authority . Tbe defeat of the government is the more keenly felt , inasmuch as it bas identified itself ostensibl y , in ibis instance , with the _Ecbenhcimgassen Club . The jury who acquitted the accused was , as indeed all our juries are , composed of the high tax paving and conservative class .
In the Stutgardt Anzeiger of the 28 th ult . there is a royal ordinance against the liberty of the i . _ress . The chief clauses of tor ' s 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 any penal 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 Assembly of France , has voluntarily 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 tbe Conference-room and Library of the New Houses of Parliament . The Conference-room , where an appointed number of tbe Lords and Commons meet to settle any matter which may be 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 desi gns shall eventually be adopted in ornamenting the chamber . Proceeding from the Conference-room through three other rooms attached
to tlie House of Lord ? , the Library of tho House of Commons , consisting of a suit of three rooms , is entered . These apartments are fitted up with treat taste and simplicity . The lower shelves are closed ones , slightl y ornamented , and the others are subdivided into compartments capable of holding from rive to ten volumes each . The floor of the rooms-is of old Eng lish oak , laid down in squares of from one to two feet , and the two rooms are to be warmed by pi pes p laced in the recesses of tho windows , and arc constructed after the mode adopted in steam eng ines , in whicli the greatest possible amount of heat can be distributed from an apparatus occupy ing the smallest space . The Committeerooms attached to tbe nouse of Lords are also in a state of great forwardness , and when finished will present a very elegant and graceful appearance . Mr . Barry baa , as we arc informed , given strict
injunctions to the workmen not to admit strangers until 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 the course of a couple of months it is expected that most of the committeerooms of the Lords , the library of the Commons , aud the Conference-room will be finished . There are two doors leading into the Conference-room , the one being for the entrance of the Lords and the other for the 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 the chambers attached to it , for the opening of Parliament , which is expected to be done b y her Majesty in person . —Glole . Reductiox or Income Tax—Important to
Tesast _Fabmers . —An application has been made by the Income Tax Commissioners for the Yeovil division to the Board of Inland Revenue , to ascertain whether they oug ht to make any reduction in the amount of income tax assessed on tenant farnu vs in cases where their rents had been reduced ; and the answer received from the Board is to the effect that , in all cases'where there has been a bona fide reduction of rent , tbcre mi ght be a reduction of the income tax in the same relative proportion . The
tax must be assessed on the net amount of rent actuall y paid , or for which the tenant is really liable , and not on the nominal amounts at whicli the farm is rented . It is hi ghly important to the tenant farmers of the kingdom that this should be widely known , for that which is done in ono district is of course applicable to the country at large . We hope , therefore , that our contemporaries generally will take cognizance of this circumstance and make it known to their readers . - Sherborne Journal .

Matthew Harvey , of Chapel Hall , Airdrie , Scotland , dated the 15 th of January , 1850 . Sm , —Your valuable pills have been the means , with God ' s blcssins , 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 tbey could for me , stated that tbey considered my case as hopeless . I ought to say that I bad 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 your Ointment over my chest and stomach , and right side , I bave by their means alone got completely cured , and to the astonishment of myself and everybody who knows me . —( Signed ) Matthew Hah-VEr . —To Professor Hollowav .
