SPIRIT OF THE PUBLIC JOURNALS. fFrom the Times.) The propositions of Mehemet Ali, with which Rifat Bey was lately despatched from Alexandria, were construed by the Four Powers into a refusal of the terms which had been offered him and accord- ingly his deposition from the Government of Egypt was immediately proclaimed. This was certainly a measure of extreme violence, more than was required, perhaps more than was justified by the conditions of the treaty of July, and extremely impolitic, because calculated to increase the ill-humour and discontent which already prevail in France. It must not, how- ever, be imagined that the sentence of deposition is really intended to be carried into execution it ia the weapon usually drawn out of the diplomatic :1f- moury of the Porte against her rebellious Pachas; but in this instance it is evidently intended to employ it as an instrument of intimidation, and for the ac- complishing the great object of the treaty. France, of course, ia aware of the real state of the case, but we see nothing in the facts, or in the probable view which the French Government may take of them, likely to disturb that substantially good understand- ing which exists between France and England.
