The intelligence received this week from France presents no feature of importance, s:ive the depar- ture of the Duchess of Berry from the citadel of lilaye, the place of her long confinement, to P.ilei-i-iio.. This event took place on Saturday last. The trial of the Misses Du (iuiny has terminated in their acquittal. The Belgian paptrs bring the account of the opening of the Chambers and the speech of the King. The tone is pacific, and a reduction of the army is calculated upon. This address has made little impression. The return of M. Dedel, the Dutch envoy on a special mission to England, to his own country, has excited the most contradictory rumours respecting the future amicable progress of the negotiations for a definitive treaty. From Spain we learn nothing but the exten- sive preparations for the approaching Cortes. The struggle in Oporto is becoming more deadly and dreadful in its effects. The town is suffering all the complicated horrors of a siege-a continued bom- bardment and deficiency of supplies. Notwith- standing the professed neutrality of the Ministers, continued equipments are forwarded only to pro- tract this dreadful warfare. The accounts from Germany, Italy, and Switzerland, teem with details of slight emeutes, which are immediately suppressed by the authorities. The affairs of the East continue much in the same train. Positive assurances of the immediate evacuation of the Turkish territory, both by the Russian and Egyptian troops, are given; but authentic information of the actual fact has not yet been received. A Miramichi paper of May 7th states that the Calypso packet, which sailed from Halifax on the 29th of January, had put into one of the West India islands, dismasted. Great apprehensions have been entertained relative to the safety of this packet. Jamaica papers to the 30th of April have been received. Major General Sir Willoughby Cotton was about to leave the colony for a short time for the benefit of his health. Sir James Carmichael Smyth, the present governor of the Bahamas, was to be removed to Demerara, and succeeded by Mr. Balfour. A Portuguese vessel from Sf.Thomas's, on the African coast, out forty days, had been wrecked off Old Harbour, near Rocky Key she had 303 slaves on board when she sailed, of which number 232 were saved and landed at Old Harbour. The island had been visited by an excessive drought. The most intense anxiety prevailed upon the subject of the ministerial plan of emancipation. The elec- lions for representatives had terminated in the return of the old members, so that little has been gained by the dissolution. Barbados papers to the 25th of April state that the elections for members of the new House of Assembly were proceeding, and the islands were all iranquil. Newfoundland papers to the 10th of May contain afflicting accounts of the loss of life and shipping, in consequence of tempestuous weather. Another calamity was the failure of the seal fishery. A great number of the sealing vessels had returned very poorly fished, and the average catch was far below that of preceding years. We have received New York papers to the 17th of May. Letters from New Orleans, dated April 30, state that the cholera had re-appeared at that place. The deaths for some days had been un- usually great, and the disease was very rapid in it« progress, carrying off the persons attacked after a few hours' illness. The latest accounts from Albany, and the papers from the north, furnish melancholy details of the effects of some heavy rains that have fallen. At Albany the damage has been very great. In the annual Spring Freshet" attendant on the breaking up of the ice and the dissolving of the snow, the river had seldom reached a greater height. The lower part of the city was completely inundated, and the loss of property was immense. The latest intelligence from Mexico mentions that the inauguration of Santa Anna had taken place in Mexico amidst great rejoicings. Busta- mente lives retired, though not out of military ser- vice, in La Moneda, in the city of Mexico. There was a current report that the Gachtipines,$>r Spa- niards that are settled in that country, were again beginning to conspire with the Bustamentoniana against the present government. The party of Bustamente had openly charged General Santa Anna with having commenced the civil war last year solely to obtain the office of President., Letters from Havana of the 5th of May state that the price of coffee had risen. About two • birds of the crop had been exported. Sugars were also higher; some planters had lost their whole crops in consequence of the prevalence of cholera among the slaves. Calcutta papers to the 10th February have been received their contents are not important. The remains of the late Chief Justice of Calcutta were interred on the 22d of January in the burial-ground of that place.
