JFamgu Intelligence.


JFamgu Intelligence. [Continued from our first pagt-] FRANCE.—The leading, and, indeed, exclusive subject of comment in the Paris journals of Sunday & Monday, is the speech delivered by the king on opening the legislative session of 1846 on Saturday. The opinions on the speech are naturally more in accordance with the political bias of the writers than remarkable for any real argument on the merits of the document. The anti-English part of the press are violent in their animadversions on account of the predominance which is given to matters connected with England, no less than three paragraphs being monopolised by th^t subject. The Debuts congratulates the country on the announcement given by the speech of the increasing prosperity of the country, and instead of finding fault with the parts d,evoted. to the foreign rela- tions of the country, maintains that it has reason to rejoice that prospeets are thereby held out of continued peace, the only guarantee of national prosperity. Allud- ing to the paragraph on the treaty entered into with England, for the suppression of the slave trade, it ex- presses its satisfaction at what has been done, not only as being the only means of putting an end to the slave- trade, but as putting the maritime commerce of France again under the surveillance of her own flag. The Presse, in allusion to the paragraph relating to England, says:—"Theparagraph which relates to our relations with England will probably give rise to more objections than the others. It may be remarked, in the first place, that it is drawn up in more reserved terms than in the speech of last year, and synonymes are no longer accumulated in it to express the idea that a close alliance with England is a sort of necessity for France, and the only guarantee of the peace of the world. On this subject the cabinet appears to us to have taken into account the repug- nance with which the Chambers have on more than one occasion received this idea, which is entirely false." The Constitulionnel reproaches the ministry with making the subject of railroads so prominent a part in the speech, as the question is one of private interests alone, forget- ting, or rather taking no notice of the advantages which must result to the general welfare and prosperity of the country from those rapid means of communication. The opposition journals generally condemn the speech aq in- significant, their anger being principally caused by the fact that they cannot find in it a single peg on which their party in the chamber will be able to hang any violent opposition to the government. ALGE RI A.—1 he Toulonnais of the 25 th ult. announces that Marshal Bugeaud, who had quitted Tiaret on the 5th ult. to proceed amongst the Chott-el-Cheurqui, met a considerable number of emigrants, who were flying from General Youssouff. Having sent forward his cavalry, he captured the entire—men, women, and children, nume- rous flocks, and an immense booty. The capture, escorted by two battalions, arrived at Tiaret on the 7th. No fur- ther accounts had been received of Abd-el-Kader, who was still pursued by General Youssouff.
