II —■■■ I r,aturDay to ifWoitDuiy'# IJoot#. LONDON, Nov. 11. j THE Paris papers to Thursday's date have been I received. The Council of State appointed by the King of the French, to take into consideration the letter of the Bishop of Chalons, has given its decision I against the claims of the Church, and the King has in Consequence issued a Royal Ordonnance, in which it is declared that there is an abuse of authority in the claims of the Bishop, that the Bishop was guilty of afts injurious to the University and the teachers, and disturbed the consciences of children and the con- 8ciencies of their families. This just decision will give satisfaction to all liberal and independent minds, and ought to convince the opponents of Louis Philippe that he will protect them at least from one tyranny, and that not the least galling, the tyranny of the priests.—The Journal des Debates has an article on the late events fit Lahore, which takes a more impartial and unpreju- diced view of the position of England, with respect to that country, than the Commerce, and some other Paris journals. the writer, in fact, admits that the acqui- sition of territory in India, and the probable acquisition of more, has arisen more from the force of circum- stances than any regular plan of conquest.

It was thus that he was forced to add to the English empire the whole of the territory of Sinde, and to convert into an English province a <c°untry which commands the mouths of the Indus and ftll the commerce of Central India and once more it is thus, that he is about to find himself under the inevitable Necessity of interfering as an arbiter, and probably as a Sovereign, 'n t'ie disputes which have deluged the kingdom of Lahore with blood. The dominion of ^'inject Sing had alone given to the empire of the Sikhs a certain unity, which gave to its communications Europe a certain eclat, but it was evident that after the death of the Lion of the Punjaub, as he was called, this eclat would disappear, and that factitious unity jvould crumble into dust. This is exactly what bits happened. Runjeet Sing died in 1839, and from that tine the kingdom of Lahore has been almost blotted Oot of history.
