THE EMPRESS EUGEXIE'S PRESENTS TO THE PRINCESS ROYAL.—We (Court Journal) have just learnt what was the birthday present of the Empress If the French to the Princess Royil, namely, a splendid Sevres vase, painted by Madame Jacotot, which used formerly to occupy the middle of the gallery at the manufactory, between the two glass cases, containing the gems of the establishment. The vase is of considerable height, standing on a edestal of pute dure; the ground is of a delicate rose pink, and the frames of the medallions gold arabesques of a white ground. Each compartment re- presents one hour of the summer day, and the paintings are most exquisite. The vase was filled with mould from the garden at St. Cloud, and cuttings from the rose- tree which Hill grows beneath the window of the chamber occupied by her Royal Highness during her residence at the palace, were planted all round. FATAL MILITARY AFFRAY AT PLYMOUTH.—For some time past an unpleasant feeling has existed between the 17th Regiment and the 2nd Warwick Militia, both quartered in the Citadel. About 100 of the 17th are recruits from Ireland, and their cause is warmly espoused by the inhabitants of King-street West (formerly Stonehousc-lane), many of whom are Irish. It appears that on Sunday evening Sergeant Clay, -No. 2 Company, 2nd Warwick, was on duty there with a picket of eight men, and that in the back room of a beershop, the George and Dragon, he found four of the 17th, one of whom told him that none of the Warwicks were there. The sergeant took offence at the man's manner and threatened that if impertinent he should be taken out. The reply was that he could not do it on which the sergeant ran out and ordered the picket to draw then bayonets. An inhabitant of the house, Jerry Hyde, went into the passage, and placed his hands acrainscthe wall, with the intention of impeding the advance of the picket; but the four 17th men stooped under his arms and went into the street they found the picket in the road, and all walked en the same way. Shoitly after one of the 17th, John Lawner, was observed with his belt raised in the act of striking the sergeant, who held one anu to defend his head, and with the other made an obliqlfe thrust with his bayonet. The point entered under Lawner's heart and penetrated a large artery behind. The wounded man ran back to the beerhouse, sat down, exclaimed I m stabbed and expired in three minutes scarcely any blood flowed, as death was caused by internal hemorrhage. He was a native of Ireland, about 20 years old, and a tailor by trade. Sergeant Clay has been suffering from hysterical depression ever since. At the inquest which was held on Tuesday a verdict of -Manslaughter" was returned 0 against Sergeant Clay.
