French Papers to the lltn lOit., witti the Etoile of Monday reached us last night fey Express. They contain an Address to the King, signed by sixty of the first banking and commercial houses in Paris, soliciting his Majesty to follow the exam- ple of England, and to send Consuls to South America and make Treaties of Com- merce, "to stipulate for its interests all the securities and advantages to which a gieat nation has a right to pretend. The merchants of Bordeaux are s4id to have signed a singular Address, and all th< Chambers of Commerce in the king- dom, 10 be making Tij of re the same. The Elode, »n a k. 'c? T „lY !«• Address, contends that French merchants are protected in their transac- ting with South America, and that men of war and other vessels are kept at sea for that purpose. It says that French Agents are visiting Colombia to examine the state of affairs, whilst individuals of a similar description afford 1.1 Brazil and wherever they may be useful, protec- tion to thetr.de of France 3KWJSSc™;i.

The French dealers spare no expense or pains to procure the choicest blood and pedigree last week fifteen high-bred and very valuable stal- lions, with two fine mares and colt, passed through this city for France, and have embarked at Dover for that country.— The verv high prices given for some of those animals wiW, of course, prove an additional reason for this cotm-ry to pre- serve that superior breed for which it is so justly famoulI.-

HOUSE OF COMMONS—FRIDAY. THE HOLYHEAD ROAD. Mr. HERRIES moved, that a sum of 27,1,4001. be granted to defray the expenses of the Commis- sioners of the Holyhead Road. Mr. HUME said, that in looking over the items in the amount furnished, he thought it doubtful how far economy was attended to by the Com- missioners in all their eliargeS. He thought that after the many grants that were made, it was now time to stop. He found a charge of 34, 1331. for widening a part of the road from Chester to B aiijgor. He found another charge of 14001. for Parliamentary fees and solicitor's charges—(hear, hear)—for passing an Act of Parliament consti- tuting the Commissioners. If so much was paid for an Act of Parliament, it was right to inquire what Was done. He found another charge of 5,000/. for engineering and surveying, although in another part there was a charge 19S1. for sur- veying part of the road. He found among other charges'for the salaries and expense of officers, one of 400/. a year for salary for a secretary.- What most struck his attention was the charge of 14oo1. for passing a Bill, of which he did not hear a word in the House. Sir HENRY PARNELL said the Act was passed two years ago to consolidate three sets of Com- missioners, one for Howth Harbour, the second for Holyhead Harbour, and the third for the Road. These not being permanent Boards, the House thought it fit to pass an Act of Parliament consolidating them into one permanent Board.— The Bill was before the House for a considera- ble time, and with respect to the expenses all persons who were accustomed to interest them- selves in private Bills knew that there was nothing extraordinary in it. The solicitor's chagres would on examination, be found to be correct. With re- spect to-the expense of the establishment, the House would recollect that the Commissioners had the care of a road of 260 miles 111 extent, besides the constructionof two suspension bridges'. The Commissioners had no fewer than 26 con- tracts in operation last year at an average of £1000. The charges were as moderate as the nature of the business would admit of. No grant was made on account of the road for the last two years. The cutting down of rocks* on the Ches- ter line cost large sums, but this expense was inconsiderable, when it was considered that this road opened the way from the North of England to Ireland. ° Mr. ALCRAFT said that this charge for a pri- vate Btttwa: excessive. This Bill, which re- garded the expenditure of the public money, ought not to be a private Bill. All this ought to be put on a better footing, and the pub- lic ought not to be saddled with this expense on a grant of public money. Notwithstanding the vigilance of his Hon. Friend (Sir H. Parnell) this expenditure, he feared, was much greater than if it were of a private nature. He ob- served one charge of X6. per stone for 107 tnile stones*. Of what peculiar character those stones were, or what countenance the Commis- sioners gave them he would not say, but h" saw good mile stones put up at one pound each.- What he rose for was to say that these Bills ought not to be considered as private Bills. Sir HENRY PARNELL said that they could not find such stones as would make mile-stones on the line. Those they had put up were brought a distance of forty or fifty miles. (We uncter- slood the Honourable Baronet to say that they were of cast-iron.) With respect to the fear entertained that there was more profusion in these works than if they were of a private nature, he could only say, that the expenditure was on a principle as economical as if it was to be defrayed by a private individual. Estimates were re- gularly made, and in no one case did the ex- pence of the work exceed the estimate. Mr. CALCRAFT was satisfied that the work was well executed. He did say that public works were gene-ally more expensive than private undertakings; he hoped that this was among the exceptions, but he still thought the mile-stones were at an exhorbitant price. Mr. VEZEY FITZGERALD said that the Bill dealt emtensively with private rights. Such parties ought to have that protection which a private bill only gave. The expense was cer- tainly heavy, but this course was inevitable, as the Bills which this Act consolidated were Query-On what part of the CHESTER ROAD ?—EDITOR. t There is not a Mile Stone on the Road from Corweti to Holyhead, about 70 miles. private Bills; no blame attached to the soli citor. All the charges were fit subjects for inquiry. The work, however, was well done, and much praise was due to his honourable Friend (Sir H. Parnell) for his zeal and su- perintendence. When the biidg-ps were finish- ed, the work altogether would he of a most magnificent description, and would not only exceed all modern works of the kind, but of the most celebrated Roman roads, and all other works of antiquity. He was glad this mention of :htj subject gave him an opportunity of thusexpres- sing his admiration of this undertaking. Mr. HOME repeated that he wished to know if this was to be the last esliniate. A road was now projected to Scotland, and the Scotch might claim the same aid to make that road, as was given to make this road to Ireland. He feared that while Parliament gave these grants, there would be no end to the cfaiins on the Commissioners. lie found 9791. charged for conslrllcting two bridges on this road, although these were considered as county bridges. There would be many othei such' applications. After a few words from Sir H. Parnell and Mr. Caleraft, ihe vote was agreed to.
INTERJECTIONS.—These, which have been cal- led brute sounds, and supposed to be destitute of meaning, "may often be traced to significant words. Few exclamations are at first hearing, less intelligible than those used by huntsmen, Tally ho! and Halla! But the former of these is clearly traced in a late Essay on Grammar to the French, art taiili "To cover!" and the latter has been conjectured to originate in the cry still used by wolf-hunters in Hunters, art loup! to- the wolf!" Four gentlemen attending Maidstone Assizes, native of Folkestone, were in company on the morning of Good Friday, and heard much talk of the tine quick hedges for which that neigh- bourhood is much famed, one in particular in the neighbourhood of Loose, was stated to he of the extraordinary height of one hundred feet. To this wonder of the country tli--v, off, and when arrived in that neighbourhood, they eager- ly Inquired of a countryman, who shurt!y satisfied their curiosity by replying, NVliv, there is no such hedge in this country, gentlemen; dan't you know its the First of April."

Several months since W. Laffey, Esq. of Dub- lin, suddenly perished in consequence of the going off of his detonating fowling piece, which hitched in the step of the jaunting car on which lie was proceeding from town on a shooting excursion and deprived him of life in a few moments. This gun was subsequently sold by a relative to a gen- tleman, who lent it to Mr. Delany, of the county of Cork, who was possessed of a pretty estate in that county. On Monday he was out on a shoot- ing excursion, and having got over a ditch, pas- sed this very gun (unluckily, as when in Mr Laffey's hands, the caps wet eon) through a hush. and having reached the other side. grasped the barrel, which was then towards him, and pulled it-the lock was detained by the earth he raised it, in doing which it went off, and tore open his body in a frightful manner. He was dead in a moment. Mr. B., of Bath, a most remarkably large, cor- pulent, and powerful man, wanting to get to town, tried for a place in the mail, a short time before it set off. Being told that it was full, he still determined to get admission, and opening the door, which no one near him ventured to oppose, he got in. When the othet, .passengers, came, the ostler reported that there was a gentleman in the coach* he was requested to come out, but having drawn up the blind he remained quiet. Hearing, how- ever, a consultation on the means of making him alight, and a proposal to pull him out," he let down the blind, and laying his enormous hand on the edge of the door, he asked, Who would dare to pull him out?" drew up the blind again, and wailing some time, fell asleep. About.one o'clock in the morning he awoke, and going to call out to know whereabouts he was on his jonn'.ev. hn perceived what was the fact, that to end the alter- cation with him, the horses had been put to ano- ther coach, and that he had spent the night at the inn door in Bath, where he had taken possession of the carriage. CORONATION OF CHARLES X.—The following are a few of the arrangements for the L'oronuiiou of the King of France :-Twetity-rive members of the Chamber of Deputies are to assist at the ceremony. Besides these twenty-five, who are to be chosen by lot, his Majesty will nominate one from the representatives of each department from those that send more than five representa- tives, two will be chosen, which will, ju [\11. amount to about 130deputies. The expenciis oi the journey and residence at Rheims will be de- frayed from the civil list. Those Members of the Chamber who may not have been appointed ei- ther by lot or by his Majesty, will, it' they wish to view the ceremony, have seats kept for aldB. The Chamber of Peers wiil, in like manner, he represented by a deputation and those Peers who shall not be called upon by their duties to attend will be invited. All the Archbishops will assist at the ceremony but no oilier Bishops than those suffragan to the Archbishopric of Rheims, and those attached to he Princes of the Royal Family. Letters of invitation will be ad- dressed to the Presidents of the Royal Courts 01 Justice, and the Presidents of the General Coun- cil of Departments, and the Commanders of tary divisions. Six battalions of the garrison of Paris will be stationed on the road to Rheims, as Yar as the boundary-line of the first military di- vision.
