J THE VOTE OF CRNSURE ON THE GO- VERNMENT. I Before these lines meet the eyes of our readers, it. is probable that the important debate in the British House of Commons on the po!icv, or no policy, winch the Whig Ministry has pursued in reference to the Gerino-Danish question will have been brought to a conclusion, and the fate of the present Government decided one way or another. At the same time it will be settled whether there will be a general election throughout the country, or not,.during the present year. Apart from party considerations, the dehate, most able, eloquent, and impassioned almost he- yond precedent, will be long memorable, and will be read with intense interest throughout the whole of Europe, as every nation, more or less, lilust feel a great interest in the result. It is a fact which cannot he successfully denied by the Minis- ters themselves, that the prestige of England has been sadly lowered during the prolonged negotia- tions, .arising partly no doubt, from the grasping selfishness and obstinacy of tl.o German Powers, who own to have cast aside all respect for right and justice anil the moral opinion of the world but chiefly, in our opinion, by reason of the blun- dering stupidity and official imbecility of the re- sponsible Ministers of the Crown, A most flagrant and wanton act is being perpetrated by the Ger- mans, and there seems no Power in Europe dis- posed to put a stop to the wicked spoliation, nor to prevent the dismemberment and destruction of the gallant little kingdom of Denmark but the part which England has played in this shocking tragedy has brought upon 11s the ridicule and con- tempt of the world—of friends as well as foes. We, through our Foreign Minister, have threaten- ed, and bullied and scolded, both the belliger- ents in their turn, and when we had made up our minds not to take an active part in the struggle, nor to render assistance in the only way which would be. of any service, namely by an appeal to arms. For ourselves wo do not regret this dcci- sion in itself, because there are many and impe- rial reasons why England should not at this junc- ture make war upon Germany, and which are felt and percei ved by the Opposition equally with the Ministerialists. There are our uncertain relations with France the sullen and defiant attitude of Hussia; the smouldering fire of the revolutionary element in nearly every country in Europe, and which would be sure to break out into a blaze the moment the first cannon shot was firell by this country and fiually the openly-proclaimed hatred of America, which only waits for a fitting oppor- tunity to wreak its vengeance upon us. This as- pect of affairs tends to make us wary and cautious before we commit ourselves to a step which might terminate disastrously to our own interests, and the more especially as we have 110 more cause to protect Denmark than has Russia or France, or any other of the Powers which signed the Treaty of 1852. What we object to, ami what the nation objects to, is the puerile, meddling policy of the Government, whirh, whilst offending one party, has not conciliated the other, and, like ancient Pistol, is terrible only in words and not in deeds —which rails but does not fight. The effect of this policy is, that we have not at this moment a single ally in Europe, nor elsewhere, and that England has become a byeword for pusillanimous blustering and meaningless menace. The Whig and Radical Press wish to blind the country, and to raise a false issue in the Debate, by representing it to be a question of War or Peace, which most assuredly it is not. Lord Derby, equally with Earl Russell has stated his opinion that England, under the circumstances, would not be justified in going to war with Ger- many in defence of Denmark, and this opinion is shared in by the majority of the Conservative party. This decision would not have brought dishonour upon the nation nor lowered its pres- tige; it is the meddling imbecility of the ministry, their holding out fallacious hopes to a brave peo- ple, and then at the last hour deserting thcUl- threatening to strike, but not striking, barking but not biting, it is this which we all deprecate and denounce, ami upon which the vote of cen- sure is based. Why, even the ordinary support-¡ ers of the Government, such as Cobdcn, Roebuck, and Horsman, admit the degradation and whilst, as partisans, voting with the Ministry, are loudest in their denunciation of the bungling and humiii- ? atixg policy of the Foreign Otnce. Persons who have good cause for not fighting should not be Whatever be the result of this great Debitte-- whether the Ministry be beaten or not-it will exercise a beneficial influence upon the European Governments, which may be of some service to them in the future. They will perceive from the outspoken language employed by most of the. speakers, that Englishmen cannot he insulted with safety orinipunitv, despite the blundering indeci- sion of a tottering ministry, and that England is as sound as ever at the core. They will be care- ful not to mistake temporary quiescence for apathy, nor a peaceful demeanour for timidity, and that there are bounds set to even an Englishman's love of peace. This, we believe, the Debate will de- monstrate to them, and it is a lesson which was I much needed, and which they will do well to pro- fit by aud lay to heart.
FROM OUR PIUVATE CORRESPONDENT. LONDON, THURSDAY EVENING. The London fashionable world remains very active and, notwithstanding the continued absence of the Queen, there has seldom been a gayer season. Her Ma- jesty does see somewhat more of society than she did There have been several select dinner parties at the Castle lately and yesterday, the Earl and Countess of Hardwieke joined the royal circle, and had the honor of dining with her Majesty. Yesterday, the Prince and Princess of Leiningcn, who had been visiting the Prince and Princess of Wales, at Marlborough-house, left London for the Isle of Wight. In the evening, the Prince and Princess of Wales dined with the Duke and Duchess of Manchester, at their mansion, Great Stanhope-street, May Fair. Covers were laid for 1G; and we arc told, that the table was exqui- sitely arranged. After dinner there was a to which OO of the elite were inited. A sumptuous supper was served at one o'clock; and afterwards danciug was re- sumed. The Earl of Derby is hetter; but there is no cbauco of his being able to attend, in his place, in the House of Lords. The Duke of Newcastle, I hear, is also greatly recov- ered from his severe attack and his medical attendants hope he will soon be able t-o resume his usual drives. The principal topic of conversation in the Clubs, is the debate, and the anticipated division on Mr. Disraeli's address. It is the generally expressed opinion, that ministers have been more damaged by the speeches of MOMrs. Cobden, Forster, Roebuck, and Homnan, than they will be benefitted by their votot), even if those votes should give them a majority. Of that there are, at pre- sent, sonJe doubts. It is said, this rnohung, that so many Irish members will go into the Conservative lobby, that victory will probably be theirs. In the Lurds, the Marquis Clanricarde intends to move the following amendment to the Earl of Mulmes- bury'rf resolution That this houfe regrets that Den- mark was allowed to expect from the Knglish Govern- ment material aid, in support of the objects of the treaty of May, 185-2." In that house it is confidently expect- ed, there will be good majority for the resolution. The revenue tables for the Quarter and Year, ending ou the ,'JQtli ult., have been published and they shew a continued tendency to increase, in those imports, in which reductions have not taken place. The reductions in Custom* and the Property Tax cause a considerable falling off in those items, to the amount of it3,357,000 on the year, and t840,000 on the quarter. To the latter sum h to be added, a decrease of zC12,504, in the Miscel laneous imports. The increase under other heads is, for the quarter, £ 656,500, for the year, 12,661),098; making the net decrease for theformer period, X214,604, and for the latter, £ 690,902. I wiah the figures were as satisfactory, when we look at tho expenditure. The net revenue for the qmrter, amounted to £ 18,374.204. The expenditure was, for supply services, £ 9,534,918; and for interest of debt, and other chargcs on the Consolidated Fund, t'9,520,167 -total, £ 19,004,1,15; being a deficiency of £ 791,871.

General Hunter had been defeated, a large number of his troops being captured; and the Confederates say that Lynchburg is perfectly safe.—On the 2Jth, the Confederates made an attack on General Aberenuubie, at the White House, and were defeated. Arkansas was overrun with Confederate guerillas; but one of their batteries near Seinmesport, Louisiana, had been cap- tured. Last year, the New Zealand Parliament passed an Act, confiscating all the lands of the Maoris, which might be captured in the rebellion, and of the tribes generally, who are engaged in it. The act met with great opposition in Kngland. The Duke of New- castle sent out an important despatch, as to its adminis- tration, before he left the colonial office; and an address from the Aborigines Protection Society, numerously and influentially signed, was forwarded to Sir Gearge Grey, the Governor of New Zealand, protesting against I the "confiscation of the native lands, and strongly urging a policy of conciliation to the people.— To this address Governor Grey has replied by a letter, dated, Govern- ment House, Auckland, April 17." [iis Excellency justifies the act, as shewing the numerous natives who have taken no active part in the present war, "that those who have risen no arm, against their follow sub- jects of another race, suffered such a punishment for doing so, as might deter others from embarking in a Rimilarcareer" The act wiII be carried out in a spirit of liberal generosity and of mercy; and in accordance with the. wishes and instructions of the Duke of Newcastle; and I think the Aborigines Society may safely leave its administration in the hands of Sir Geo. Grey and his advisers.

BANGOR NORMAL COLLEGE. The annual meeting of the donors aud subscribers to this institution was heid at the College, on Tuesday last. In the absence of Mr. Darby, David Ptobui-tq, Esq., of Liverpool, was voted to the chair. There were also present:—ltev. 41ohn Phillips, Messrs. Hugh Owen, London Grififth Jones, Upper Bangor; J. K. Dougla*, Bangor; W. Pierce, Wrexham; Thos. Lewis, Bangor; Owen Elias, Liverpool; John Roberts, Bangor; D. White, ditto; Griffith Parry, ditto; Hugh Jones, ditto; John Edmunds, ditto; Thos. Williams, ditto; E.Roberts, Carneddi; D. Jones, ditto; D. Davies, ditto, &c The CHAIHMAN after expiessing his regret at the ab- sence of Mr. Darby, said they had met together as re- quired by the deed of triist, iti order to hear the report read as to the progress which the institution had made during the past year He had no doubt they would find from it that much had been done to remedy the crying defect which all had to deplore, the educational wants of Wales and that as to their financial i osition, the balance was on the right side. (Hear, hear). Mr. HUGH OWEN, of London, then rose to read the "REPORT, 1864. The Provisional Committee of the Bangor Normal College, relinquished the trust confided to them at the meeting held on the 7th of July, ISfiS, when the pre- sent committer of management was appointed. "The Provisional Committee on the report which they presented at the above mentioned meeting adi*-tcd to the rise and progress of education in Wales in connection with the British Schools; shewed tiie necessity which existed for providing means for training teachers, and detailed the proceedings taken for establishing the tem- porary training school, IIwl for erecting this college. They also described the arrangements made on the trans- fer of tllc students in August, 1862, to the college, for the propel' conduct of the institution in its several de- partments. J fie committee of management have pleasure in submitting to the subscribers a brief account' of the institution and its working during the past year. "Experience shewed atau early period that the arrange ments M they stowl at the close of the first year were susceptible of material improvement, and with tho view of effecting such improvement the Rev John Phillips was invited to accept the position of principal, whereby would be secured for the institution the full advantage of his experience, judgment, and personal influence in its general superintendence, as well as in the conduct of its correspondence, and iu the raising of funds. Car., was, however, taken not to interfere with the responsi- bility of .Mi-. Price, now the vice-principal, in relation to tbe work of rJuahfyin¡( the stnd(,ntsfor the office of teieliers the great object of tile institution itself. "Another alteration elfeeterl was the appointment of Mr. John Thorn IS to be resilient tutor, in the place of Mr. Hugh Jones, who being married could not reside in the institution. By this appointment the coll -ge ob- tained the advantage of a highly competent tutor, and also an officer who is constantly on the premises, and who in conjunction with the vice-principal allords a guarantee for the maintenance of discipline among the students when they are out of class. f r Hugh Jones, whom the committee regard i, ;t faithful and diligent officer, hassucceeded Mr. Edmunds, ill the charge of the Bangor British School, which is used as the model school for the students. Mr. Jom-s is t hus able, in the position ol master of method, to con- tinue to render valuable service to the institution. This school had been hI tlw cllarge of Mr. lidmnnds from its establishment, iu 1847. lie retired in consequence of failing health, after a period of nearly 17 years' service, iu which he distinguished himself as a reniai-kal ly efficient and successful teacher. The several offices connected with the college are at present supplied thus :— Principal — Rev. John Phillips; Vice-Principal—Mr. John Price; Tutor—Mr. John Thomas, A.11.; Drawing- iii,uter-Air. J,,hii Edmunds; Master of Method and Head-master of the MndftScitooi-Mr. Hugh Jones; Matron—Miss Kate Price. The committee consider the present arrangements to be in all respects satisfactory; and they arc glad to beii- testimony to the ability and zeal manifested by the several officers in the discharge of their respective duties. H.M. Instector, W. Scoltock, Esq M.A., paid his annual visit in August last, and his report on the institu- tion will be found in the recently published report of the Committee of Council on Education. Last year there were 40 students in residence—ISS of whom were candidates for certificates at the last Christ- mas examination. The following, being 33 of the num- ber, were successful. STUDENTS FOB SECOND YEAR. Owen, Humphreys Jones John (n). Pritchard, Hugh Morgan, Williams 0. Williams, Griffith Parry, John Hughes Evans, John Thomas. STUDENTS OF THE FIRST YEAR. Bush, James Honlson, Abraham Pope, John Jeffreys, Thomas Thomas, William Jones, David (A) Edwards, David Jones, David (B) Evans, Joshua Jones, Daniel Mathews, John Jones, Edward Morris, Richard Jones, John (c) Parry, William Lewis, Richard Short, Edward Scourfield, Benjamin Cadwaladr, John Thomas, John Daniel, John Williams, Hugh Ellis, Owen Jones, John (D) Griffiths. Owen IVilliiiii-4, John All these have been appointed to schools, with the exception of those who have returned for a second years' training For the present year there are in residence 31 students, 25 of wliom gained admission by examina* ioii conducted by H.M. Inspector; 9 as second year's students, and 16 as first year's students. The institution is now (like all other training col- leges) under the operation of the Government Revised Code, and dependent as regards three-fourths of the in- come derivable from the vote of Parliament, on the suc- cess of the students in obtaining certificates, and on their subsequently remaining sufficiently long in charge of schools to allow the same being for the s;eond time officially inspected. "The consequence is, that one-fourth at the least, of the expense of maintaining the institution, must be raised by other means. The committee entertain no doubt that the requisite amount of voluntary coiiti,it,u- tions will be readily supplied by the friends of unsec- tarian education throughout the principality, and that the college will continue from year to year to be ade- quately supplied." The income and expenditure of the institution for the year ended the 31st December, were then read, wluch shewed that the grants obtained during the year from the Committee of Council on education during the last year amounted to £ 10870,,1).1.; ine,n,w from otoer sources, t275 4s 7d.; total, £ 1362 -Is. 7d.; expeiidi- tnre far the same period, £ 1201 4s. ord, balance in the hands of the treasurer, L71 0s. 2d. The following is a copy of the auditors report: — o We have examined the receipts and payments of the training department as appearing by the foregoing ac- counts, from 31st December. 1862, to 31st December, IStili, shewing a balance of £ 71 Os. 2d. in the hands of the bankers. The payments also appear to be sanctioned by the committee at the usual Quarterly Meetings, and the vouchers for the several amounts were also exhibited before us. "JNO. H.L.HALL ¡ Atiditor? I ROBERT B. PERKS, Auditor" The accounts for 30th June last, were also examined and certified by the auditors; and it is satisfactory to find that they shew a balance in favour of the institli- 1 tion. These accounts will be comprised in the Financial Statement for the current year. The receipts and payments of the building depart- n:ent from 15th August, 1863, to 30th June, 18C4, were exhibited, and after transfering the sum of £ 88 4s. 2d. to the training department, there appeared to be a balance of 9 1 13s. fid. due to the treasurer. Mr. GRIFFTH JONES proposed, aud Mr. JOHN ROBERTS seconded, that the report now read be adopted, and printed for circulation among the subscribers, which was carried. Mr. THOMAS LEWIS proposed, and Mr. Tnos. WIL- LlAMS seconded, that a number of gentlemen, whose names were read to the meeting, be on tho committee for the ensuing year. Mr. H uoii OWEN said-thatgreat alterations had been necessitated in the financial position of the College in consequence of the reviserl code. Previously the grants ■were'regulated by certain allowances made to each stu- dent in each college but now the Government have adopted a different mode of distributing Parliamentary grants for education, having in view the making of pay- ments proportionate as to results, both in the elementary and training colleges. In case of schools all grants are now capitation grants or allowances for so much per head of every scholar passing certain examination. Previonsly grants wete made to such schools without any reference to the quality of education imparted at the school; the consequence was, in many cases, that inefficient teacher, who had succeeded in obtaining certificates of high grade received a larger amount than another teachei who, not being so successful in obtaining tho same kind of certificate, but who could prove, by results, to be a good teacher. In many instances, several teachers holding high certificates occupied very low positions as teachers. So tilp Government was paying dearly for very ineffi- cient services. Now, the grant was entirely regulated by the result of the teaching; and the teacher has no grant directly from Government, by virtue of his certi- ficate, but a grant is made to the school in the form of "capitation grant." The teacher was engaged by the school committee or managers, and paid » salary aa any Qlher officer would be paid. There was good reason for what government had done.and in two years its effect wjuld be batter appreciated than now. The teacher under the new code had a more stimulating motive for making greater exertions in bringing firrward >he children plac.! under hi; cqre.. As to training schools, the in- come, ;LS far as Government were concerned, was ill the form of payments in respect of the students in resi- dence. Rev. J. PHILLIPS-—Before the present year, ai! those who gained scholarships were admitted into the College For all those who it cessful examination at Christmas, the grant will be from £13 to t'20 per head, according to their standing. Mr. ti. OWEN --But the principle upon which grants are made to training schools is the followingthe student in respect to whom the Government makes pay- ments to the College must have been undergoing train- ing for two years, and in charge of schools for two years. Rev. J. PHILLIPS —The necessary qualification is 1 that the school Luust to inspected twice by the Govern- ment. Mr. OWEN —And the schoolmaster qualified with a ¡ certificate. The College does not receive, as heretofore, allowances in respect of a student who happens to be in the College during the year when the grant is made. Grants have reference to other individuals than those in residence. But however successful the training sellonl however high tho porportioii of those trained and now in charge ot schools, the College cannot get more from Government than 76 per cent of its expose'. If the tl'aÎJán Le '¡"fectil'e, '1' if t.h,' 'y"i1ng men, nfte:']"I'inJ!, I' College, should go to other trade or calling than that of t.-aching, then the College will utfr'. Before youths were apprenticed :1. pupil teachers, and having received a superior eK-n of e lueiti.>n professedly qualifying them as fe iciiers of elementary school*, many were found taking holy orders in the church as clergymen, at the c st of Government. All thi<, with the new code, will be obviated. Mr. PniLi.IPs said :hat, for three years they carried on tl Jong coriv^.ondoore with the Council Oiffce respec- ting the allowances granted to students, under the new arrangement. Having read a loiter from the Committee of Council upon that quea'ion. he went on to state that the Bangor College had trained and qualified 12 teach era annually to undertake the charge of elementary schools, and at Christmas last 21* more were called to do the same duties in various parts of t|ie country. hoy had still applications from all parts for additional teach- ers and it was painful for him w receive such nume- rous applications without the possibility of supplying the demand, though, to his min i, it was a proof of the progress which education continued to make in Wales Hear, hear.) Mr. 1) EVANS remarked that the demand for school- masters in Wales will bo more than the supply for mam- years to come. Mr. Uoi'M.AS expressed liis satisfaction at the correct and caiwful ma iner ill which the books of the establish- ment were kept. The CIIAIKMAJT also, on behalf of the committee, who i had examined the books tha; morning most minutely, said they appeared as satisfactory as any committee could wish them to be.
liETHESDA LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH. At the usual meeting of this Board, held at the Dong-1 las Arm Hotel in llethesda on Saturday, the following members being present—Mr. Hugh Iltigliet;, stineon, in the chair; Messrs. John Sciinat-, Rd. Hughes,J.Hughes, and W. Y. Hardie, clerk. The members present regretted that there was not a better attendance at this meeting of the Bord: there being important business in regard to the enforcing compliance with the new street and building regulations of the Act. The members, at a previous Board meet_ing, not being ?atiafied with a number of 1)1:ti3, then ag to the system of drainage, constrnntion and width of new streets,—it was resolved that the approval, or otherwise, of the phil, thclI produced should be deferred to the next meeting (Saturday when, pursuant t¡"requ>st, the Surveyor laid before the Board the following re- port :— OR.M.AN BUII.DIXG SITES. ) To the. IkthaiU Local Board of llaM. Gentlemen,—Pursuant to the request of the last meeting of your Board, I visited the huiMiug sites at Gerlan, with a view of ascertaining the best system of drainage. the position and regulation of the buildings, as ivell ii the widths of streets and their mode of construc- tion, and have now to report that—The Lots 101, 98, and 81, on which cottages are intended to be built, plans of which have been submitted to your Board but. not as yet approved of iu consequence of your Board not being satisfied as to the proposed drainage,&c. The Lots, as laid out, have ample ground for four houses each but as to draitrage, there is a difficulty, inasmuch as drains of ample size ought to be forthwith constructed before the roads are made, and the outlet can only be made to run into small streams which cross Colonel Pennant's property to the irver, which streams, cannot be used without consent. Upon the whole, the xite* lit\. wen for drainage, &c" I would recommend that the toads should be of one uni- form width in the clear, of 24 feet, and thut the builtl. ings should not be erected directly upon' the- i),)tin(l. ary of the several Lots, as proposed by some of the plans. I would also advise that regularity should be enforced- as to the position of the houses on the several plots, and not to allow them to place their buildings iu an irregular position. can be getaway without contaminating the small streams below—many of which are now used for domestic purposes.

NANTLLE. FATAL ACCIPEKT.— A melancholy oeeurreuee t.¡.¡ place on Fridav afternoon, the 1st instant, in the of Nantlle. A bla." was tirc,! in tbe TaJRan. Q¡;.¡-.r.tJ>, which threw the fragments of rock high into the w ali an easterly direction, forming an arc of aiwitt of a mile, and at the same time a young ii-onwo, k wife of a (iiiari-yiiiaii, was descending the incline frcra.

Nothing eev.'»* better exemplify the truth—" Iu the inidat of life we ar* in death."
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.
