VUANCE. SLTPK^SSIOX OF THE CLVBS.—-The Assembly, on Satur- day evening, brought to a close the debate of-the law on the C'ubs, which was finally adapted. The third and conclu- sive reading will take place after five dear days. By this law clubs arc interdicted, but public meetings for the discus- sion of political subjects which have not the character im- puted to clubs by the present law will be permitted. In consequence of the strong feelings of disappointment mani- fested by the extreme Republicans, military precautious have been taken against disturbance. The modifications are such as will allow of occasional public meetings for political purposes, and of permanent societies duly registered, holding periodical meetings restricted to members, and open to the visits of the police. It seems to be anticipated that the clubs will be able to evade the measure. PUKi'Ait.vTioN'fl FOR THE ELECTION'S.—The arrival in Paris of M. Guixot is announced. He proposes, it is said, to offer himself for Calvados; but the Club of the Hue de Poitiers, alius M. T'liers, has resolved that- no member of the hIt Cabinet of Louis Philippe shall have its countenance. The cholera has become formidable in Paris. L.VMARTIXE AT EOUUGE.S.—The judicial proceedings at Bourges were resumed on Thursday at the usual hour. The tribunes were much crowded, and a considerable number of ladies were present. Anxiety to see M. de Lamartine, who was to be examined, was the cause assigned lor their pre- sence. During the examination of the first witness a huis- sier announced to the court that M. de Lamartine had arrived, and awaited the President's orders. In a few mi- nutes he appeared in court, and his presence seemed to create a sensation in the galleries. He'deposed to }V'fnit took place on the loth. He declared his belief that the manifestation in favour of Poland was only a pretext to invade the As- sembly. He was certain, from diplomatic correspondence he received, that foreign emissaries had been employed, and that foreign agents had come to Paris from Cracow for the purpose. He did not say that there was a complot, in the exact sense of the word, but there- was no doubt that an attack had been meditated against the Assembly, which only failed in consequence of the clubs being jealous of each other, and in consequence of each wishing to be the leader. Tin; CHOLERA IN PARIS.—On Saturday, it carried off .M. lllin de Boudon, a Legitimist, representative, whose name is one of those affixed to the manifesto of the Rue de Poitiers, and who sat for thirty years in the Chamber of Deputies. M. Gustavo do Beaumont, late Ambassador at this court, is dangerously ill of the same complaint. Louis PHILIPPICS RACING STUD.—The whole of Louis Philippe's magnificent stud, comprising about sixty brood mares and entire horses, is about to be sold by public auction at Versailles. The day of sale is fixed for the 2nd of April, and very considerable interest has been excited on both sides of the Channel by the announcement. The horses to be sold include draughts from the stables at Versailles, Mcudon and St. Cloud, and among the animals are several of the purest Arabian breed. Several of them were presented to the ex- King by the Pacha of Egypt, the Imaum of Muscat, and the Bey of Tunis. The pedigrees, as set forth in the cata- logue, will be found most interesting to sporting readers. 0
