I GLANCE AT F0RELGN~AFFAIR8. (The Proprietor of tftis paper does not necessarily identify Umself with the opinions here expressed.] The aspect of affairs, so far as the great continental question of the day is concerned, is not encouraging. It is said that France and Piedmont have agreed to the annexation of Savoy to the former Power. The annex- tion of Nice is a matter, it is stated, for after considera- tion. If this be true—and there is little doubt that such a consummation is devoutly wished by France—the peace of Europe will possibly be endangered by the necessarily antagonistic view which Great Britain must take of the secret arrangement. We trust, how- ever, that France may be induced to abandon her aggressive tendencies. The Emperor has once more spoken out on the subject of his relations with the Pope. The Minister of Public Instruction, through the Moniteur, lectures the arch- bishops and bishops of France 011 the civil and eccle- siastical law. The Minister says that the Church has authority over religious society in religious matters. As to temporal matters, however, the Emperor will not allow any ecclesiastical domination. The disagree- ment with the Pope is a temporal question, and, says the Moniteur, the clergy have nothing to do with it. -»his clearly shows that the Emperor is determined to have his ownjway. The condition of the Jews on the Continent is grad- ually improving. In Austria, according to an im- 1 Perial decree, the Jews are allowed to acquire and Possess landed property, while the same right is gua- ranteed under certain restrictions to the J ews of ^Hicia, &c. It is pleasing to see that civil and re- S Jfi"Joua liberty is thus progressing, although it is by such painful steps. ,r The news from India is now no longer of exciting interest, for the dying embers of the recent rebellion are nearly extinct. In place of those items of intelligence, however, which used to be of so much interest, we have yaatters of a more pleasing character. Among these is the submergence of the telegraphic cable between Rurrachee and Aden. From India we learn that the force for China is being organised, and about 15,000 of our own country- men and of the natives are to go out to the Celestial Empire. The Suez canal appears to be an object that is still dear to the heart of the Emperor of the French. M Ferdinand de Lesseps has had another audience with him, and the Emperor has stated that he will seize the first opportunity of negotiating with the English Cabinet for the promotion of the scheme. Our readers are aware that the Emperor is said to have similar de- signs with regard to the canal. It would probably go far to give him a. firm hold upon Egypt. This would be following out his policy of his uncle. At last we have news of peace between Spain and Morocco, or rather conditions of peace are talked of. Some variation in the terms appears in the several accounts, but the following are probably the con- ditions :-That Spain shall have conceded to her a permanent port on the Atlantic; that she shall also have 40 square leagues of territory for forts; an indemnity of 5, 000, OOOl. (where is Morocco to get it ?); and Spain to occupy Tetuan till this indemnity be paid. The Queen of Spain maintains the justice of the war, and, it is said, insists on some such terms as these, or the war, she says, shall be carried on.
