Jxrrign EnttlligfHff. _0 FRANCE.—The Paris Opposition journals are still occupied chielfy with the honible massacre of the Dahra, to which atrociotB affair they return with new vigour; and which, and its author (Marshal Bugeaud), they stigmatize and condemn with a warmth and an amount of execration that demonstrate how truly they are im- pressed with the odium it has attached to the French name. They also give vent to expressions of alarm, lest the humane Marshal have the command of the forts round Paris (and he would have it) in case of an entente. CHINA.—We understand that private letters have been received in Liverpool from Shanghac, of a date later than any intelligence which has appeared in the newspapers; and the intelligence which they contain, if strictly correct, is highly important, as showing the great extension of the market for British cotton manufactures in the eastern ports of China. The statement is to the effect, that within three weeks, no less than six vessels, the Sarah Louisa, the Yalon, the Thomas Worthing ton, the Flora, the Monarch, and the Richard Cobdev, all which left Great Britain in October, had arrived at Shanghae and that nearly the whole of their cargoes of manufactured goods had been disposed of at satisfactory prices, both for cash and in barter for teas. The alleged date of the preceding intelligence is the 14th of April from Shanghae. CAN ADA.—Another awful fire has taken place in Quebec. On Saturday, June the 26th, and Sunday morning, upwards of 1300 houses were burnt, by which 10,000 persons were rendered houseless. The workmen were totally ruined. A large number of families had left the city. A newspaper states :—" The scene was one truly piteous. Hoary age, and helpless infancy, frail women, the sick and the decrepit, halted in these bleak highways and rude outbuildings, unable to fly further from the scene of danger; there they sunk down, over- whelmed with despair. Some idea of the sufferings of these broken-hearted people may be gathered from the fact that two children, who were taken from a bed of fever, expired yesterday in a stable. A woman also expired from fright and exhaustion in an open field, and we have been told that a man also died in some wretched corner on Sunday night." AMERICA.—By the New York Express, we find a great fire has occurred at Matawzas. The loss is estimated at eight hundred thousand dollars!
