A melancholy instance of the effects of ex- cessive joy has just occurred at Giiribi&de (Gers). M. Troye, cuiS of Gimbrede, was last week visited by his motiier, with other relations, to attend public worship at his church. Mdme. Gimbrkde was almost beside herself with joy at the thought of hearing her son celebrate mass and preach a sermon, but she had scarcely beard the first words of his discourse when she fell from her seat and was carried insensible into the sacristy. Her son. seeing what bad happened, hastily descended the pulpit stairs,, but from jexcessive agitation fell into a i aini ing fit. M. Troye soon recovered, but it was found that his mother was beyond all human aid. J

TOWN TALK. BY OUB IXJNDOX CORRBSPOHDBJTT. Qwr readers vnM understand that we do not koid o%TSbmi responsible fw our able correspondent"$pprknotu. • A REAL bit of European political news has come at last, after a year, in which our eyes have been generally turned across tie Atlantic. The little throne of Greece is again to let. The Bavarian Otho has, at last, tired out the patience of his people, and made a forced march of retreat, like his father, in the memorable year of '48, when a throne was sacrificed to the charms of Lola Montez. In the good old times admired by the John Bull and the Standard, an army representing legitimacy would not have been long in setting the Greeks to rights. A few years later, but still a few years back, before a Crimean war had topped the balloon-like influence of Russia, the Czar would have had something to say in so interesting a matter but in the present non -intervention stage there is no Power with money or inclination to meddle in this business, and the Greeks will be left to settle the affair themselves on any terms they please, so long as they do not disturb the peace of Europe. The modern Greeks are an extraordinary people: while in their own country little is to be seen but beggary and dirt, fleas and robbers, barbarous agriculture, and an absence of every useful part of civilisation; no sooner do they establish themselves abroad than they become a commercial power far excelling the French, and even beating the Germans as merchants and brokers. In London, in Manchester, and in Liverpool, they form numerous communities, with their own clubs and places of worship, splendid houses, horses, and carriages; doing business with every quarter of the globe; not very highly esteemed for veracity, but clannish and keen as Jews, and much more intelligent, educated, and energetic. They are a people who can be made something of because they are industrious. What they most need is a sort of civil engineering king, who would give his mind to making roads and putting down robbers, encouraging agriculture, building docks, and making it worth the while of the people to cultivate, save money, and grow rich. Greece is destined, if wisely governed, to absorb, not conquer, Turkey, and earn the gift of the Ionian Islands. With the King of Greece has gone the Queen, once a great favourite with the Greeks, a fine woman, full of ambition, a daughter of the Duke of Oldenburg, whose other daughter married a brother of the Emperor of Russia, had a soul above internal improvements, but dreamed of an Eastern empire, with Constantinople for its metropolis. She helped to make war on us in the Crimea. A woman must always be forgiven for being ambitious, and this once-famous beauty has to .put up with a stupid husband, and a king who has failed in business, at a time of life when queens get more compliments than ordinary women. The wedding of a very popular nobleman has just taken place in Ireland. The announcement of his engagement rather surprised the gossiping public, for Lord Dufferin, although not much past thirty, has been lately set down as a non- marrying man sufficiently amused by a little politics, a little writing and sketching, a good deal of yachting and hunting—not to care for domestic settlement. A couple of years ago he made a sensation at Portsmouth by jumping into the water to save the life of a celebrated horsebreaker, who had tried and missed a flying leap over the swing bridge. It is only fair to add that Lord Dufferin would cer- tainly have risked his life just as freely to save the least attractive of women. But he is now finally married to a charming woman of his own rank, and will probably go in for steady politics in the diplomatic line. Just before this marriage of young people, the world that talks of such things was amused by the announcement of the union, by special license, of his lordship's mother—once, with the Honourable Mrs. Norton, and Lady S2ymour, now Uuchess of Somerset, one of the Three Graces—with the per manently invalided Earl of Gifford, the middle-aged eldest son of the evergreen Marquis of Tweedale, two of whose daughters are the Duchess of Wel- lington and Lady Peel. Sir Benjamin Brodie's death has, in this vacation time, filled a large place in newspaper obituaries. He was able, accomplished, industrious, made money and friends, and, altogether, was just the sort of person who becomes a fashionable surgeon or a bishop. Mr. Cobden has appeared in great force again, in his original character as a politician, and has made a very powerful speech on congenial ground, amid sympathising friends at Rochdale, in favour of abolishing, at the same time, the capture of commercial ships and the blockade of commercial ports in time of war. He went so far as to assert that England was answerable for the blockade by which the Northern States of America now prevent the Southern from sending cotton to us. I am not going to travel out of my department to argue on the great question which is, if possible, to form the subject of a new Lan- cashire League; but I may point out that if the Americans were in earnest in their proposition to abolish commercial blockades, they would have set the example when they had the game all to themselves. Their newspapers promised to show the world how to crush a rebellion in such style as never was done before; why did they not try to set us an example of making marine war on commercial principles? No one prevented them. They certainly offered to adopt the anti-privateering clause of the treaty of Paris when the privateers of the South were likely to be troublesome—that is to say, they asked Europe to help them to catch and hang the Southern privateers. Europe answered, You are too late for this war, we will take you into partnership for the next. But Mr. Cobden's principles with respect to blockade are gradually obtaining I agffenoerrdas l sfuaffivocuier n; t foer xatmhe plpe reosf entt he disetvrielss s aamtteonndg inugs the present system, by which the commerce of neutrals with a country engaged in war is completely destroyed. The Americans have carried on the blockade in a way that would have produced a dozen wars, had America been the neutral and England the belligerent and on land pillage and rape have been among the peculiarities of their armies. Colonel Turchin, who authorised the most atrocious outrages in a Southern young ladies' school, escaped with a nominal punishment. Colonel Butler is praised and rewarded for conduct worthy of the worst days of the French Revolution. The blockade of the cotton ports has been publicly approved because it starves Lancashire and we must not now be asked to put our trust in the fine words of the American diplomatic philanthropists. It i s to be hoped that real war will not raise the blockade question before Parliament meets; but this Wilkes, of Trent notoriety, at Bermuda, looks very like the last stake of a desperate gambler-to let the South go under the smoke of a war with England and invasion of Canada. Z. Z.
OUTLINES OF THE WEEK. A CABINET Council was to have been held last week, and the country looked with anxiety to their meeting. There were many and various ideas upon the subject; some thought there would be a discussion upon the acknow- ledgment or otherwise of the Southern States of America; others hopel that Lancashire distress would be con- sidered, and prophesied that a Government grant of .money would be given to help the poor operatives during the winter. Not a few, however, believed that the question of Italy and France were the prominent sub- jects to be discussed. But, to the surprise of all, at the very last moment the assembling of the Cabinet Council was countermanded. The reasons for this change is not made known, but the change itself is a somewhat curious one. The ministers came to town for the purpose of consulting with one another. They had not been sum- moned, one would think, without some special object, and it is difficult to guess what object could have dictated the summons which so suddenly ceased to exist. Ordinary politicians would infer that circum- stances had arisen which rendered it particularly desirable that her Majesty's advisers should not come together. They agree best apart If they had met they would have quarrelled, and so the astute Premier made up his mind that no meeting should take place. THE Conservatives seem to have roused themselves during the past week, and have talked long and loud about Palmerston and the coalition administration. With some braggadocia they tell us that Palmerston is only doing their business; that whenever it pleases them they can displace him. He is not altogether free from their attacks, however; Lord Robert Cecil, in his speech at Stamford, wished that the Premier belonged to The Anti-Meddling-in-other-People's-Business Society;" but he does not explain what he means thereby. Major Beresford, Mr. Disraeli, and Mr. Du Cane have all had a, rap at him. The latter gentleman, at a meeting at Colchester, says: — "No other man in England but Lord Palmerston could have held his own to the end of last session with similar tact and courage in the face of a mutinous following, unsympathising colleagues, and a strong opposition but, unless it was really true that all party distinctions were quite at an end, it was,. in his (Mr. Du Cane's) humble opinion, utterly impossible that such a state of things could continue to exist much longer. Ever since that day when Government by party became an institution in our political history, there never was a prime minister who, when a large portion of his followers had openly renounced their allegiance, could continue to hold much longer his position. He believed Lord Palmerston, although in many respects deservedly popular with the country, was getting into very much the same position as he occupied in 1858. He was the Tory chief of a Radical cabinet, and each fresh im- pulse of Conservative resistance on his part only tended to widen the breach in his own domestic circle, while each act of concession on the part of his Radical colleagues only tended to blunt the edge. of Conservative forbear- ance, and to strengthen and unite his opponent's forces. We all remember the fall of Lord Palmerston's Govern- ment in 1858, and he (Mr. Du Cane) could not help thinking that we were fast approaching a similar crisis. The time was close at hand when the ministry must adopt one of two alternatives — they must either die quietly and peaceably from internal exhaustion, or else make a final and convulsive effort to recruit, their exhausted powers by a little change in country air. MR. COBDEH'S speech at the Manchester Chamber of Commerce will be read with interest, not only by those who Icok upon the speaker as an exponent of their views, but even by those who differ with him. On the subject of maritime law Mr. Cobden is an authority- not so much because it is a matter with which he is thoroughly conversant, as because he is alive to its evils —and is the representative of a class daily becoming more numerous, who think that the responsibilities of war should rest entirely upon the belligerents, and not bring a punishment upon a people who have had no voice in its commencement and have no interest in its continuance. The consideration of this question is opportune at the pre3ent moment, and Mr. Cobden brings the matter home to us when he reminds us that had England, in 1859, accepted the proposal to abolish not only the right of an enemy to capture private pro- perty during war, but the system of commercial blockades altogether, we should have avoided all the suffering which has now come on the manufacturing districts. At a time when we are forced to bear more than our share of the suffering, caused by a contest in which we have no material interest, Mr. Cobden's views may have some weight in the country, and we shall probably feel more desirous of securing the adoption of the reforms which he recommends. THE Grecians have long suffered under the yoke of despotism they have long borne with the shortcomings of their sovereign, and conducted themselves with for- bearance and moderation, In 1843 6frcece asserted, by a bloodless revolution, the rights she had extorted from the Turks. Since then, the country has been oppressed by the despotic acts of the sovereign, backed by a corrupt legislature. Since 1843 she has presented a spectacle somewhat similar to that exhibited by France under Louis Philippe. The result has been identical. National disgust, guided by moderate counsels, has enveloped every class of the people, and the King and Qaeen have been quietly bowel out. The nation has no-v to reconstruct; her independence to'es- tabliah new forms cf Government, agreeable to the | wishes of her people and to unite in that bond of fel- lowship which shall destroy despotism, and give them the blessings of freedom. What new sovereign to ap- point, or what line to take has not been fully deter- mined. The fate of Greece, and of Greek nationality, however, depends on the choice of future leaders. Her prosperity cannot but be a matter of interest to England, and it is hoped that in making her selection she will choose well. THE King of Denmark has, it is said at Copenhagen, devised a Constitution for the Dachies of Holstein and Lurenburg, which would make them, to a great extent, independent of the Danish Government, and remove all pretence at interference on the part of the Germanic Confederation. If this settles the Schleswig-Holstein question, his Majesty v.-ill receive the thanks of all Europe. THE Lord Mayor of London deserves the thanks of the nation for the support he is affording to the fund for the Lancashire distress. His lordship takes much more pains in this matter than is generally believed. Inde- pendent of the large sums of money that pass through his hands daily, he suggested a means of collecting cloth- ing for the poor operatives; and, having announced to the public that he would gladly receive any" left-off" wearing apparel, his cull was so quickly and readily responded to, that he obtained rooms in the old Bride- well Prison-now called the Bridewell Hospital-in Bridge-street, Blackfriars, to warehouse them, and here may be seen large parcels of clothing arriving hourly; indeed, such quantities arrive that the Lord Mayor has found it necessary to appoint three persons solely to unpack, sort, and pack again. It would surprise any one to see the odd mixture that is constantly arriving— all, however, very useful: boots and shoes, coats and trousers, shirts, stockings, and under-clothing of all kinds, are sorted into their separate lots, and an account taken of them. The Mansion-house committee meet twice a-week, and decide what shall be done with them or where they shall be sent. It is hoped that all who can spare clothing of any kind will not forget that they would be doing an act of kindness and charity by forwarding them to the Bridewell Hospital.
Loss of the Bencoolen and Great Loss of Life. There seems to be yet but little abatement of the severity of the gales, more particularly along the western coast, where, up to Wednesday, the wind has blown with the force of a hurricane from the S W., with a tre- mendous sea on, and breaking over the shore. Admiral Fitzroy has communicated to the several stations round the coast that another storm is probable. On Wednesday, Lloyd's agent at Bude, near Bideford, on the North Devon coast, forwarded a telegraphic dis- patch to the City announcing the loss of a large ship off that place, and that most of the crew had perished. She proves to be the Bencoolen, 1,500 tons burden, bound to Bombay from Liverpool with a cargo of machinery, railway iron, telegraph wire, and .other gonds. It appears that she left the Mersey last week, and in making her way out of the Channel encountered the gale, and becoming disabled put back, and in endeavour- ing to make Bude Haven struck upon the rocks and became a total wreck. Unhappily out of a crew of i 27, only five, it is reported, were saved. The Bencoolen | was built at St. John's in 1855, and was a first-class ship. j Early on Monday morning a very large barque was observed to be ashore on Rattray Head. The steam tug Derwent happening to be in the north harbour of Peter- bead, the steam was immediately put up, and Messrs. Stephen and Forbes, shipbuilders, accompanied the steamer to rescue the crew of the unfortunate vessel, as it was evident from the very high wind which prevailed at the time that they could not long keep tfloat. On the way to the scene of the disaster a small boat was seen by the steamer, apparently in distre s, and the crew of which being unable to row, it was drifting out to sea. On reaching the boat it proved to be one of the ship's boats, containing 3, portion of the crew, who were immediately taken on board, quite benumbed. It appeared that another of the snip's viuoio remainder of the crew, and that she was still farther drifted out to sea. A look-out wss immediately made for the other boat, and the remainder of the crew were shortly after picked up from their perilous position, and all sifely landed at about ten o'clock, a.m. The unfortunate vessel, which proved to be the Water Lily, of Sunderland, 330 tons burden, was bound for Leith with a cargo of wheat from New York, from which latter place she sailed on 11th September. The crew consisted of eleven men, besides the master, and one passenger. She struck on the Head about four o'clock on Monday morning, and the crew saw no hope but to betake themselves to the boats, having saved their clothes and the ship's papers.
Remarkable Accidents. The gale which raged with such fury during Sunday night and Monday morning, although abating somewhat for a few hours, again broke forth even with increased violence during Wednesday night and Thursday, causing not only an immense destruction of property, but further injury to many persons. During the height of the gale I on Thursday moriJng an accident happened on Black- friars-bridge by which two persons wereseverely injured. It may be stated that the District Telegraph Company's wires run across the river over the bridge, the wire springing from Mr. Harvey's, the Cross Keys Tavern, Blackfriars-road, to a house, on the Middlesex shore. About eleven o'clock an. Islington omnibus was passing over the bridge, when a icud noise was heard, and I before the cause could be ascertained a gentleman was seen to fall violently from the top of the vehicle on to the roadway on his head. It was then found that the telegraph wire had been broken by the fury of the gale, and such was the impetus that it coiled I round the neck of the unfortunate man and dragged him from his seat. He was picked up and conveyed in a u 11 senseless state to the house of Mr. Bianelli, surgeon, where it was found that he had sustained serious in- juries to his skull. It was ascertained that his name was Morris Jacobs, residing in Albany-road, Camberwell. The broken wire afterwards came in contact, near the Middlesex side of the bridge, with a man in a cart, and hurled him to the ground, causing severe injuries. The telegraph wires are reported tL have been much damaged along the lines of several railways. Owing to the heavy rains the neighbourhood of Hedhill was completely flooded. A large number of cattle was drowned, and a good deal of farm property destroyed. The damage to house property has been very great, and several other personal injuries of a slight nature are reported.. The navigation of the river has been much impeded.
Remarkable Tornado at Killaloe. On Sunday evening last, between the hours of five and six o'clock, a hurricane, which for violence and the suddenness with which it occurred-the weather a mo- ment previously being as calin as the finest summer day-- has never before been equalled in this country, swept over the above town and neighbourhood, causing considerable damage, to house and other property, besides tearing up several large tiees. During the continuance of the gale, which fortunately lasted only about twenty minutes, the cky presented a most direful aspect, patches of dark red, yellow, arid black alternating along the heavens; and as if to add to the appalling nature of the scene, the whole body of the Shannon and lake (Lough Dearg) was, ap- parently, by force of the wind, raised up and tossed high into the air in dense volumes of spray, which for the time actuallv obscured from view the surrounding rrountains, many of which are nearly two thousand feet high.
Burning of a Vessel, and Loss of Several Lives. The coasting steamers. which arrive constantly at Liverpool, report the prevalence of dreadful weather in the Channel, and it is feared that the less of several additional vessels will be brought to light. On Friday night a telegram was received from the Bidston station to the effect that a large vessel was in the Queen's Channel dismasted, rockets also lb virg been noticed from the direction of the Form by lightship; but, on the Liverpool lifeboats, in tow ot steam tugs, proceeding to t? r- neighbourhood of the lightship, no vessel was to be L s 1. It was afterwards found that the Hindoo, a large v .el bound from Montreal to Liverpool, with petroleum ■ board, had stranded on Taylor's Bank, near Foimby. it appears that the vessel was overtaken by the gale when in the Channel, and at length became so un- manageable that, in order to prevent her drifting ashore, it was determined to cut away the masts. This, however, did not prevent her being stranded, as both wind and tide propelled her irresistibly along, and ultimately she went on shore at Formby. Endeavours were made by those on board to reach the land in safety, when it was discovered that the ship was on fire. The combustible nature of the cargo soon rendered any portion of the ship uninhabitable j the crew took to the water, and, with the exception of five men succeeded in reaching the shore. The master of the vessel, Captain Murphy, was severely bruised by the drifting cargo, and nearly poisoned by the petroleum. The captain says that the effects of oil upon troubled waters is not at all what some. people believe. On Friday not a vestige of the Hindoo was visible. She had burned to the water's edge, and then broken up. The Hindoo left Montreal on the 17th of Septem- ber last, with a cargo of nearly 3,000 barrels petroleum on board, consigned to Mr. M. J. Wilson, of Liverpool. The most disastrous accoants of the effect of the late heavy gales continue to be received. In addition to the sad havoc which has been caused on the shores of the United Kingdom, a long catalogue of disasters has come in from the north coast of Europe. Up to Saturday no fewer than upwards of 100 wrecks and more than 500 casualties attended with a great sacrifice of life had been reported on Lloyds' books during the week. There was a lull in the violence of the weather in the course of Thursday, but late on Saturday evening the wind again came on to blow strong, and it is feared must have told with serious effect upon the shipping which had ventured out of port. Several homeward-bound ships, which have succeeded in reaching Falmouth and other western 113 ports, report having experienced the most terrific weather in the chops of the Channel, and some of the vessels to escape foundering had to throw cargo overboard. By the Speculant, which arrived at Falmouth on Satur- day, intelligence has been received of the abandonment of the brig Token, of Dartmouth, bound from Belize, with a cargo of mahogany, to Queenstown, and, melan- choly to relate, the captain and twelve of the crew are reported to have been drowned. The rest of the hands were rescued by the Speculant, which has brought them to England. Later telegrams speak of considerable damage amongst the colliers and other coasters navi- gating the North Sea. A large barque called the Atlantic, belonging to Weymouth, bound to Sunderland from Honfleur, was driven ashore at Thisted. The Dutch and Danish ports furnish a long list of disasters, the gale having raged on that line of coast with great fury, accompanied in some parts by thunder and light- ning. Some of the cattle steamers had to put back with considerable loss of their live cargoes. The timber-laden ships appear to have been particularly unfortunate in weathering the gale, and a fleet of vessels from the Baltic have had to put into Christiansand and other ports, all more cr less damaged. Great fears were entertained for the safety of the steamers trading from London and Hull to the northern Continental ports, but it appears that they all have been accounted for, although some of them have had a very narrow escape.
SUSPECTED POISONING BY STRYCH- NINE. On Saturday evening Mr. Reed, the coroner for South Northumberland, opened an inquest in the Town-hall, North Shieds, on the body of Mrs. Gillespie, of Wel- lington-street, who died a fortnight since, after an hour's illness. The case is causing great excitement in Shields. By an order from the coroner, the body has been ex- humed in the New Cemetery; andMr. Newton, surgeon, Dr. M'Nay, Dr. May, assisted on the part of the husband by Mr. Murray, of the School of Medicine, and Mr. Fawcett, held a post-mortem examination. At the inquest, Mr. Brignal, solicitor, of Durham, appeared for the husband of the deceased, but no evidence was taken, the inquest being adjourned. The facts of the case appear to be as follows: — Mrs. Gillespie, a tall woman of full habit, had been unwell of a cold, and procured a bottle of medicine of her medical at- tendant. She was out on Saturday morning making pur- chases, and upon returning to her honie about noon took two tablespoonfuls of medicine, and was immediately after attacked with alarming symptoms of tetanus, and though every effort was made to save her, she was dead in little better than an hour. Her medical attendant gave a certificate that her death was from bronchitis. But the husband, from the symptoms, supposing that there was something wrong in the medicine, gave a few drops to a cat, which died shortly after apparently in extreme agony. After the interment of his wife's body, he took the remaining portion of the medicine up to Dr. Pattiaon, analytical chemist, Newcastle, who, after analysing it, gave a certificate that it contained s*1- „;ra5„ ,.i ±1 ,,iu lu eacn rluid ounce of the mixture. Mr. Gillespie having made the case known to the authorities, the coroner issued his warrant for the disinterment of the body. The Town-hall was crowded with respectable inhabitants of the town during the short time the coroner's court sat. The name of the medical attendant did not transpire in evidence before the coroner's court, but it will appear in the next sitting, when the case will be fully gone into.
THE EFFECT OF DRUNKENNESS. Dr. Lankester held an inquest at Paddington on Friday, concerning the death of a child named William Corderoy, aged 7 years, who died at St. Mary's Hospital under very melancholy circumstances. From the evidence of a Mrs. Rudd, in whose house the parents of the deceased Mrs. Rudd, in whose house the parents of the deceased child resided, it appeared that the father was a mechanic, earning good wages, and that from Christmas up to last Tuesday week he had been a teetotaller. About two or three weeks ago his wife, the mother of the child, com- menced drinking, and had been in a state of intoxication, morning, noon, and night, from that time up to the hour at which the inquest was being held. The poor little boy became ill with a sore throat on the 13'h inst., his mother being tipsy at the time. Soon after his illness set in the father also commenced drinking, and from the day he did so had been in the same state as the mother. Mrs. Rudd said that husband and wife appeared to spend their nights as well as their days in drinking. No one in the house could get any sleep, such was the noise made by the Corderoys all night. On Monday the woman insisted on sitting upon the doorstep all night, though the rain was pouring upon her in torrents. On Wednesday night she amused herself by throwing her furniture out of the window, and the next morning, at half-past six, she ran away from the house. On Sunday morning half a gallon of beer was delivered to the pair from a public-house, and on the evening of the same day no less a quantity than two gallons was delivered at one time. From the state of intoxication into which they had put themselves, neithel father nor mother was capable of attending to the sick child, and, as a last effort to save its life, Mrs. Wright, a neighbour, wrapped him up in a blanket and carried him to St. Mary's Hospital on Saturday night, after considerable opposition from the parents. They had another child, which Mrs. Rudd believed would have starved if one of the lodgers in the house had not tvken charge of it. She thought that both parents were much attached to the deceased child, that they endeavoured to give him the medicine ordered, but they were too drunk to afford him the attention he required, Mr. Rees, the medical gentleman who had attended the boy before his removal to tha hospital, corroborated Mrs. Rudd's evi- dence. The parents had wished to be kind to the child, but they were incapacitated from doing what was neces- sary by the effects of drink. Seeing how matters were, he attended no less than four times in one day to ad- minister the medicine. On one occasion be saw the mother allow the sick child to drink nearly half a pint of beer. He told them that the employment of a nurse or the removal of the boy to a hospital was necessary, but they refused to follow his advice in this respect. His opinion was that the child would have had a good chance of recovery if he had been properly attended to in time. The resident surgeon and one of the nurses of bt. Mary's Hospital proved that the child was in a dying state when admitted to that institution on Saturday night, and that he died in two hours and a half after he was received there. The jury found that the deceased died of inflammation in the throat, and that his death had been accelerated by want of attention on the part of his parents, arising from their intoxication.
ARRIVAL OF PRINCE NAPOLEON AND PRINCESS CLOTILDE. The screw yacht J6r6me Napoleon, having on board Prince Napoleon and Princess Clotilde, and suite, arrived at Southampton, on Saturday morning, from Cherbourg, Their Imperial Highnesses afterwards proceeded to, London.
THE REVOLUTION IN GREECE. A telegram, dated October 27, state? that the King has retired to Salamis, where be received a courier from General Hahn, announcing that the General, with 2,600 men who had remained faithful to the King, pro- posed to take up a position in the environs of Athens, in order to cut off the insurgents' communications and oblige them to capitulate. The Minister of Marine has gone to Paros, in order to prevent the arsenal from falling into the bands of the insurgents. It is asserted that he has succeeded in this. The King and Queen of Greece appear decided to maintain their cause in the provinces which have re- mained faithful to them. The insurgent chief at Monitza is said to have called the inhabitants to arms against the Turks. It is asserted that the candidacy of Prince Ltuch- tenberg to the throne of Greece is seriously spoken of at Athens. An address is being signed at Athens, calling upon the loniansto unite themselves to Greece, CORFU, OCT. 27. King Otho and his Queen have arrived here, and taken their departure for Venice. An English war steamer has left for the Pirseus. It is asserted that the remainder of the English fleet will proceed thither.
ITALY A deputation, consisting of the Duca di Sforza, the Senator Cesarini, and the Deputv Silvestrelli, was re- ceived at the Court of Turin, on Thursday, by the King, and presented to his Majesty the marriage gift sent 1y the citizens of Rome to the Queen of Portugal. The Official Gazette denies the statements of Deputies Crispi and Deboni, that the Government had forbidden Dr. Bertani to visit Garibaldi the first day of his illness. The Diseussione says that it is considered likely the ministry will come to an understanding with Signori Farini and Minghetti. The same paper mentions a rumour that M. Drouyn de FHuys has proposed the revocation of the vote of the fItalian Parliament which declared Rome th3 capital of Italy and adds that no ministry would be popular in Italy which would permit any mutilation of the national programme. Garibaldi has been removed to Spezzia from Varig- nano. The pain of the wound was slightly increased by the journeJ. The Turin Official Gazette of Oct. 27 publishes a decree convening the Italian Parliament for the 18th November. The King has held a review of 12,000 mon in the Chaiap de Mars. His Majesty was enthusiastically cheered by the large crowd assembled on the occasion. Garibalbi continues to improve.
AMERICA. Advance of M'Clellan. NEW YORK, OCT. 18. Another division of M'Clellan's army has crossed the Potomac at Shepherdstown Ford, and advanced towards Smithfield, discovering the enemy in heavy force, but meeting with no resistance. The cavalry of this division afterwards formed a junction with M'Clellan at Charles- town. Skirmishing continues between Buell's army and the rear of the Confederate army in Kentucky. Buell is pressing forward, but no serious fighting has occurred since the Perrysville battle. An engagement has occurred at Bldckwater River, beyond Suffolk, in Virginia. TheresuIt is unknown. The New York Herald says the fact that the Confe- derate screw-steamer Alabama has never been in American waters, but only in British waters, or on the high seas, may lead to a declaration against England for acts committed by a vessel having no other stamp of na- tionality than British. The Richmond Inquirer of Oct. 11 says there are pros- pects of art early peace, founded on the results of the battles in Virginia and Maryland and the campaign now progressing. The battle of Antietam was it the Federal forces t)"vrr '—"T uereat of the war. »j-iuij. i. A. K. Nelson, up to the present time a strong Union man, has issued, an address to the people of East Tennessee, denouncing President Lincoln's emanci- pation proclamation, and saying that of all the despotic acts which the civil war has produced none are equal in atrocity and barbarism to that proclamation. Mr, Nelson urges the people of East Tennessee, if they would save themselves from a species of carnage unex- ampled in the history of North America, but unequivo- cally invited by the President's proclamation, to at once, without waiting for the conscription, buckle their armour and volunteer in the struggle against Lincoln's Govern- ment. No despot in Europe," he says, would dare to exercise the powers which Mr. Lincoln in two years has usurped. He now claims the prerogative of abolishing slaverv without the consent of the people of East Ten- nessee. If he thus takes negroes why may he not take lands, and reduce the people to a state of vassalage of which no parallel can be found except in the history of the middle ages ? NEW YORK, OCT. 20. All the reconnoitring parties from General M'Clellan's army have now returned to Harper' Ferry, where the Federal head-quarters are established. The reconnais- sance showed that the Confederates were massed in heavy force between Charlestown and Martinsburg. Rumours are current, but not generally credited, that the Federal army will go into winter quarters. The Confederates, with 1,500 men, dashed into Lex- ington, Kentucky, on the 18th, capturing the town, and 100 prisoners. General Morgan afterwards evacuated Lexington, and met the Federal forces undei General Dumont be- tween Versailles and Frankfort. It is reported that, aftpr a short engagement, General Morgan's forces were routed and scattered. Doubtful reports have been received of an apprehended negro insurrection in Culpepper county, Virginia. Seventeen free negroes, in whose possession Mr. Lincoln's proclamation was found, are reported to have been hung. NEW YORK, OCT. 21. The Federal General Dumont is closely pursuing the Confederate 'General Morgan since his evacuation of Lexington, Kentucky. Morgan has captured a train of 80 Federal waggons near Bardstown. The Southern accounts of the battle at Perrysville, Kentucky, differ from the Northern reports, in claiming the victory and the capture of 9,000 Federal prisoners during the battle. It is reported that General M'CMIan's army is unable to advance on account of short supplies of clcthirg and shoes for the tivops. The New York Chamber of Commerce has passed reso- tions stating that the destruction of the ship Brilliant by the Confederate steamer Alabama is a crime against humanity. The Chamber of Commerce has not failed to notice the change in British sentiments, transforming a friendly nation into a Power the nature of whose neutrality is shown by its permitting ships to go forth, and arma- ments to folk w them, for the work of plundering and destroying American vessels, thus encouraging upon the high seas an offence against neutral rights, upon the plea of which, in the case of the Trent, England threatened to plunge the American Government into war. The Chamber has heard with amazement that other vessels are fitting out in British ports to continue the work of destruction began by the Alabama, It is the duty of the Chamber of Commerce to warn British merchants that a repetition of such acts as burning the Brilliant by vessels fitted out in England, and manned by British seamen, cannot fail to produce wide-spread exasperation in America. The Chamber therefore invokes the influence of all men T-. ho value peace and good-will among all nations, to prevent the departure of other vessels of the same character from their ports, and thus avoid the calamity of war. The resolutions close by declaring that it is the desire and interest of Americans to cherish and maintain senti- ments of amity with England.
