FESTi N TOO.',:.




Jutland hM bosu placed under the Prussian Ad- ministration the Dauiiih oJ&uuls aud inhabitants have been ordered to obey the Prussian authori- ties, to whom the customs duesij .n<\ the revenues derived from other sources, Me to be handed over. Intelligence of a day later informs us that very considerable contributions have been imposed upon the inhabitants of Jutland. Thn allied ar- my in that Province is now under the command of Prince Froderick Charles, who, on the 30th ult., issued an address to the troops, congratulat- ing them on the victory at Alsen, and hoping for a continuance of the unity hitherto subsisting be- tween the imperial, royal, and the Prussian sold- iers. The Dukes of Oldenburg and Augustenburg are now both in the fiolll as competitors for the Duchies. There have been, ItS yet, uo popular manifestations for the former, whilst the latter has received several addresses from different quarters. One was presented to him at Kiel, on Sunday, from" the select committee of the Schleswig- Hoistein associations." His Highuexs, in reply, øaid, he hoped the active proceedings of the Ger- man powers had prevented the division of Schles- wi, and that the claims put forward by the Duke of would not defer tho time when he (the Duke of Augustenburg) would be able to lead theui against the common enemy. Whatever lnay lie the case in Holstein, the Schleswigers are not unanimous in deeming that "common enemy" to be Denmark. The influential portion of the inhabitants of North Schleswig have made known their wish to remain under the sovereignty of Christian IX. There is some reason to believe that the latter intends to treat personally with the Allies. On the 4th Prince John, of Glueksburg, King Christian's youngest brother, arrived at Lu- beck, on his way to licriiii. The jouruey is sup- posed to be connected with an important political mission. What did the three Sovereigns of Austria, I R. Prussia, and Russia, do at Kissengen ? is a ques- tion frequently asked, but which it is difficult to answer. The most general report has been, that they entered into a new Holy Alliance, ioteuded —whi'st they guaranteed to each other their own possessions—to oppose a barrier to liberalism and revolution, for despatches were published in the Hominy Post, signed by Her Von Bismark, ex- planatory of the reasons which had induced the Powers to enter into this agreement, while ano- ther London paper gave the text of the treaty. Her Von Bismark declares, through the Prussian Ambassador, that he never wrote such despatches and it is believed, whatever understanding may have been come to by the three sovereigns, that no formal treaty was signed. The French papers have been very severe upon the English policy with repeet to the Danish ques- tion ascribing to the Government and the coun- try every mean motive, and La Vatrie affirms that (he object is to "save tlw cash box." The Om- ttitnU'jnnel of the 1st instant is a little more cour- teous, and expresses the pleasure it feels at the praise bestowed, by Earl Russell, on the Emperor —"in the first place, because it is happ\ to see the government respected, and in the second, be- cause it is convinced that good and courteous re- lations between France and England are the surest guarautee for the interests of civilization." The Emperor remains at Fontainbleau, and has re- ceived the second party of visitors, in the list of which there is not a single English uame. M. Thouvenal is at Fontainbleau, and has had fre- quent interviews with the Emperor. This has led to a rumour that a change is pending in the foreign ministry, and on Saturday it was reported at Paris that the Prince de la Tour d'Auvergne, the present Ambassador from France to London, would succeed M. Drouyn de l'Huyi., who has been several times summoned to Fontainbleau. Baron Von Buest, who was the representative from the Federal Diet at the Conference, left London on Friday, arrived at Fontainbleau on Saturday, and was invited to a dejeuuer with the EUlperor on Sunday morning. In the evening he dined with M. Drouwi de PH uys. On Thurs- day the Emperor was to proceed to Vichy, and the Empress and the Imperial Priricetolit. Cloud. The Spanish Government, on the 1st, inst., ad- dressed a note to its diplomatic agents abroad, denying with respect to Peru, all intention of setting up a claim of re-valuation its only object being to occupy the Chincha islands, in order to obtain satisfaction from Peru. Proofs are also adduced, in the same document, that Se- nor Mazaredo, the French Am bassador, was nearly losing his life, when travelling through Peru.- Advices received the previous day, from Cuba, stated, that the inhabitants of Cuba had bought aa iron-olad frigate, to reinforce the Spanish squadron in the Pacific. On the 4th inst., the debate on the financial policy of the Government was continued in the Italian Chamber of Deputies. Signor Kattazzi attacked the Government generally in a long speech.—The debate was continued on the 5th and it ended in a vote of confidence in the Go- vernment being carried by 182 to 126. King George 1. arrived at Athens on the 5th inst. Despatches received at Paris, we regret to sav, give a sad picture of the political and finan- cial position of his kingdom the Ionian islands are said to be threatened with anarchy. With respect to the Danubian Principalities, the Governments of England and France have agreed to adopt an united policy towards them. Prince Couza is said to have returned to Bucha- rest perfectly satisfied with his visit to Constan tinople. The Bey of Tunis sent four thousand troops against the rebels on the 27th ult. and he was about to despatch an expedition of ten tliousaud men to occupy Sfax. The rebellion in Algeria is nearly subdued. Un- der date of the 27th ult. Gen. Martin prey an- nounces, "that all the tribes of the Flittas, who were still in a state of revolt, had been driven into their last refuge, and had surrendered un- conditionally." He retained 4000 prisoners, as guarantee for their submission. On the 29th, the General was to embark at Mostaganem to re- turn to Algiers. The ?'M?r pnMi.shes accounts from Mexico, d?ted May 28, to the effect, that on the 22m), Commandant Courey defeated the united bands of Landooal and Cadanena, at Valparaiso killing 120, and capturing 300 prisoners, five guns, an en- tire park of artillery, and 200 horses. The arrival of the Edinburgh and the China, from New York,-the latter liaviug had a very fIt- pid passage, brings the details of Grant's reelmt movements, which the Times designates as causing an extraordinary change in the aspect of the Vir- ginian campaign. Grant had moved from near Fredericksburg, on the north of Richmond, to the vicinity of Petersburg on the South and to secure his rear, it was neeeilAAry that he should capture that city. He accordingly assaulted it with a large force, on the 17th and lftth ult. and was repulsed with a loss of between 6000 and 8000 men. The attack was made by Gen. Smith's corps; and Lee, having made a corresponding movement to that of the Federal General, was cii- able(I to detach a strong force to Petersburg, and ensure ill: victory. The Federals retreated to Bermuda Hundred, where Butler was anI the Confederates had taken up a position in front, having repaired the Richmond and Petersburg railroad, destroyed by that General. There had been no more fighting up to the last dates but Grant was reported to be making another flank movement. On the 18th, the Federal Hunter, attacked Lynchburg, ami was repulsed,—the next day there was severe fighting and the Federal •Howard is said to have gained an important posi. tion, which the Confederates attempted to retake, but were repulsed with the loss of 700 men. She- ridan also says he has defeated the Confederates at Trevallian Station. The proceedings connected with the Presidential contest were going on and the Peace Democracy had resolved to support no candidate who was in favour of the war. -Great agitation still prevailed at New York, where, in consequence of the pass- ing "f the bill prohibiting time bargains in gold, that precious metal had advanced to 130 per cent, premium. The price WaS 210 on the 23rd ult. The Indian Mail brings Calcutta papers to May 22 and intelligence from China to the 13th of that month. The Indian intelligence is not im- portant. At Rangoon and Moulmeim and whence the news comes, down to the 10th and 14th of May respectively j, where there had been difference with the authorities, affairs were taking a more favourable turn. A document had been received at Calcutta, giving a true version oUhe causes which led to the insults on the mission to Bootan, from which it seeing that the Bootans suspected that the mis- sion was sent to search the city, and to spy it out, and to overthrow it. Thero is soarcely any topic of interest in the Chinese news, except what relates to the Taeping rebellion. That Ohce formidable movement ap- pears now to be confined within very narrow limits, and only two important garrisons were reported in tho China Mail, of the 13th, as holding out. One of these was at Chang-chow the other was at Nankin. Both were eloselv invested when the mail left,— Chang-chow-foo by the imperial troops under Col. Gordon and the Futase the other by the Tseng Kwofan's forces. A telegram from Shanghai, dated May 23, received via Suez, states that the former had been taken. Accord- ing to the China Mml of the 13th of May, Colonel Gordon will now disband the small force which follows him, and leave the imperial army. There is a telegram from Bombay, via Suez, dated Juue 9. ft informs us, that the Ameer of Afghanistan has defeated one of his brothers, who had Bed into British territory and that the Ameer was then marching against his other bro- thers. Advices from New Zealand, received at Mel- bourne, state, that on the 27th of April, the troops engaged in besieging Galepa, attempted to take the place by storm, but were repulsed with severe loss, Col. Booth, and a o;Hcors of the 43rd regiment being amongst the slain.—The Maori loss was 100. Their leader was afterwarosdefeated by friendly natives.
