FOREIGN ITEMS. That part of the Emperor's speech concerning the an- nexation of Savoy and Nice was received in Nice with enthu- siasm. A decree has been issued by the Austrian authorities at Venice, ordering all functionaries of the State to shave off their beards, and especially to discontinue the wearing of hats & la Cavour, which are considered as the emblem of the party opposed to the Imperial Government Whilst the whole population of Vienna took an active part in the Schiller festival, the medical profession alone kept aloof. Considerable surprise being expressed at this exclu- siveness, a wit remarked, I think it quite natural that medical men won't have anything to do with immortal people."

The pilot of the Havre packet reports that the life-boat of the ill-fated Ondine has been picked up at sea and towed into Havre by a pilot boat. It contained two dead bodies, male and female, the former apparently a sailor, and the latter a soldier's wife. At the funeral of Mr. Fonblanque, late B ritish Consul at Belgrade, Vicomte de Vallat, the French Consul- General, declared that the Pasha of Belgrade ought to precede Prince Michael in the procession, which decision gave such offence to the heir-presumptive to the throne, that he desired M. de Vallat never to cross his threshold again.

Larache and Arcilla, lately bombarded by the Spanish fleet, are two small ports on the Atlantic coast. The latter is a town of about a thousand inhabitants, eleven leagues south-west of Tangier, and is defended by only one fort. Laroche has from time immemorial been the ordinary station of the Emperor of Morocco's fleet. The Chamber of the Representatives of Belgium have adopted unanimously a bill which strikes out of the oath to be taken by provincial councillors and municipal authorities, the declaration that the House of Nassau (Orange) has no right to the throne of Belgium.
