TIlE FRENCH IN ALGERIA.—The National gives a frightful picture of Marshal Bu^eaud's doinirs in Africa. According to the accounts published by this paper, 50 prisoners were on one day shot in cold blood—13 villages burned, the Dahra massacre acted over again, for it seems that a por.ion of atriba having hid themselves in a cave, the same means were resorterl to, exactly as were employed by Colonel Pelissier, and all smoked and baked to death. J'he marshal himself is the author of all these horrors— his last triumph was a monster razzia—he has ordered the moststiict secrecy as to his barbarous proceedings; aud the writer of the accounts, of which we have just given a summary, calls him a second Attila, for he puts all to the sword and fire, sparing (I,dy women and infants. We leave to the French press the'duty of corntnentingupon such acts, and we cheerfully acknowledge that that duty will be fulfilled. We fancied that it required the dark phrenzy of the age of the Inquisition to throw up such a monster as this Bugeaud. TRIFLING CAUSE OF DEATH.—An inquest was held by J. B. Gnnclon, Esq., on Monday, at the Wheatsheaf, Bedminster, Bristol, on the body of Hannah Warburton, who came by her death from the following comparatively trival circumstance:—She was about six years of age, of a delicate constitution, but not ill, and was always much affected at the sight of blood. On Saturday she slipped from off IL. form on which she was sitting, and struck her elbow against a stool, which scarred the skin and caused it to bleed a little, which so frightened the poor little child that the fell into a fainting tit and died in a few minutes. A verdict in accorda ice with the evidence was returned by the jury. THE AMBRICAN PUESIDENT'S MESSAGE.-This impor- tant document, which will decide the question of peace or war, m:iy be expected to reach us by the 25th of the present mouth. Look out for a Christmas Box," as an American paper says. Punch has, of course, some allusion to the great topics of the day—the Whig and Conservative adhesions to Corn-law Repeal. In the cut belonging to the series of pencillings" is the parody of a picture (by Collins, if we remember rightly) called "Coming events cast their hadows before" Cobden, with tree" corn on his head, is the traveller whose approacii is indicated by the shadow on the path and Peel is the urchin slowly opening the five-barred gate of monoply," tc- let the forage pass. In another cut, Cobden is going right ahead, at a hard trot, on the good hackney ".Free Trade"; and John Russel, touching his cap, is the little vagabond street- lounger that runs after the gentlemen, haud possibtts equis, crying, May I hold your horse, Sir 1" -11 kind of "fixed duty" which the Manchester man betrays no sort of disposition to intrust to the suspicious-looking little fellow.
