SUMMARY. I THE treaty of commerce with France still con- tinues to occupy a considerable amount of public attention. As might be expected, the gigantic changes it contemplates give rise to considerable carping ;âstill the most implaca- ble enemy of free trade is unable to bring forward one single substantial argument against it. There is no doubt the fiscal advantages to this country, as we have tried to shew before, will be many, but of far greater importance do we look upon it in its political aspect. By its provisions the Emperor is pledged to the abolition of the Freuch prohibitive system. The French manufacturers who fancy that they have an interest in the protective system, well know that protection is doomed, and they will set their house in order accordingly. The restoration ef confidence by the new pacific policy will in itself greatly increase trade on both sides of the channel, and in proportion as trade increases between the two countries will invasion panics diminish, a blessing of which it is impossible to estimate the extent. the thirst for vengeance against China ap- t:> pears to have received a check in high quarters, as well as in the country generally. In the House of Lords on Tuesday, Earl Grey not only fully explained the views of I, those that are opposed to hostile opera- tion, but moved an amendment expressing regret "that when the preparations for the intended expedition were commenced Her .Majesty's servants did not advise Her Majesty to communicate to Parliament, without delay, the measure's decided upon by them, in order that Parliament might have an opportunity of form- ing a judgment thereon, and that its previous saaction might be obtained to the expenses it might occasion." Though negatived without a division, it will not be without good results. The ] tide has turned in respect to this illQmened w .If I 1 As the Times"âonce the most prominent ad- vocate for vengeanceâsays, on this subject there is but one feeling nmonsr the public:â" A speedy settlement consistent with our national honour, is desired by every one. Never hud we a war which created so little enthusiasm. It may almost be said to have been for^oitun be- fore it is begun. The truth is, we have had Asiatic wars enough, and that wars with China in particular neither inflams the imagination nor appeal to the self-interest of the nation." The question of the SilVOY annexation to France, was before the House of Commons on Wednes- day night. Lord John Russell, in answer to Mr Disraeli said, that Lord Cowley had, in July last, communicated with Count Walewski as to the rumour of the annexation, which ended in the French Minister disclaiming any proposal of the Emperor of the French on the subject. Accord- ingly, a despatch was forwarded from our For- eign-office to Paris expressing the gratification [ of her Majesty's Government at what had been stated. The matter continues tote gravely dis- cussed on the Continent. A great battle has been fought between the Spanish army, before Tetuan, and the Moorish forces which watch it. The Spaniards claim the victory, and believe that they have killed two thousand of the enemy, while their own loss consisted only of two hundred. There is, how- ever, no advance of the Spaniards mentioned as the result of the battle, so that we suppose it must be classified with all the previous con- tests, as a mere trial of arms, without strategical significance, and without even moral impression for had similar Spanish victories been what they were-, represented to be, we certainly should not hear constantly of new struggles on the same blood-stnined ground.
