FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. WASHINGTON, Feb. 8th.âThe Supreme Court has decided that aU contracts made prior to 1862 are payable in coin. It is generally considered that this decision does not affect the constitutionality of the Legal Tender Act. BOSTON, Feb. 7th (Evening).âHis Royal Highness Pnnc» Arthur is staying at the St. James Hotel here.. Pans, Feb. 8th. The Gazette des Tribunaux states that M. Rochefort was ar- rested last night at eight o'clock, as he was about to enter the public meeting hall in the Rue de Flandres. He made no re- sistance, but on the contrary said to the bystanders at the entranceâ" Remain quiet, citizens; I shall soon return to the meeting." Some disturbance followed, the Commissary of Police was surrounded and dragged into the street, and threatened with death. For upwards of an hour he was exposed to insults and menaces, but was finally rescued by police agents. Half an hour later an attempt was made to throw up barri- cades in the Faubourg du Temple, and also in the neighbourhood of the Courcine Barracks. Carriages and omnibuses were upset, but the presence of the police sufficed to disperse the rioters. About the same time six omnibuses had been overturned in Rae de Paris at Belleville, and a somewhat imposing barricade was thus formed. At one o'clock this morning strong detachments of the Garde de Paris, and bodies of infantry and cavalry proceeded to Belle- ViXhe Boulevards at the same early hour presented a rather animated spectacle, yet no disorder has taken place. Large bodies of police are massed together at the entrance of the Faubourg Montmartre.
