[Mu sisters] Mr. Rorstck [Rustic] moved the important reselution [resolution] ofwhich [of which] he had given notice, tie principles upon which the foreign policy of the governnicnt [Government] has been regulated have been calculated to maintain the honour and dignity of this country, and in times of uncxampled [unexampled] difficulty to preserve peace between England and foreign nations. He com- [commenced] menced [mended] by explaining the reasons which had induced him to make this motion. A government constituted like ours, he observed, when condemned, by one branch of the legis- [legs- legislature] jiature, [nature] is unable to discharge its duties either at home or abroad with honour. In such a case, therefore, it became the duty of this House to ascertain for itself what had been the conduct of the government, and to express its own opinion. Heazreed [Redhead] with Lord J. Russell, that no adminis- [admin- administration] tration [ration] was bound to. resign upon a mere resolution of the House of Lords; but if it was necessary to have a House of Lords, and if that house had expressed an opinion upon a question regarding our foreign policy, this House should step in and declare the sentiments of the people of England upon the same point; the clear proposition contained in the resvlution [resolution] of the House of Lords being a condemnation of that foreign policy. He confessed he came to the con- [consideration] sideration [side ration] of the policy of Lord Palmerston with a mind dispose in its favour; for, though he had seen much in its details to condemn, with its principles he entirely agreed. There were two classes of cases whieh [which] that policy embraced -one regarding individual rights and wrongs; the other, the general interests, the dignity, and honour of this country. The object of Lord Palmerston, with relation to the first, was to extend the protection of the government of England to her wandering sons so far as the rules of civi- [civil- civilized] lized [sized] nations would permit and with respect to the interests of this country, as a people, he believed Lord Palmerston's policy had been to maintain the peace of the world, not by truckling to despotism, but, as far as permitted by the rules of international law, by the exertion of the moral force of the English name. Might there. net be a minister of this eountry [country] whose policy was to.make tyranny safe in Europe 'These antagonist principles were now upon their trial, and the House of Commons was called upon to. decide whether England was openly to countenance, not struggles for anarchy, but the efforts of mankind for self-government, or lend its aid to crush these-efforts. Mr. Roebuck then rapidly reviewed the. system of foreign policy pursued by this country from 1799 te 1815, and from 1830 to the present tiie, [tie] contrasting its principles in the two periods. He then noticed cursorily the circumstances under which the kingdom of Greece was established by the three powers ; the pcity [city] intrigues of which the little court of Athens soon became the focus; the obstinate ignorance of the English people as to forcicm [farcical] affairs; the insolent demands made by Russia and Austria upon Turkey for tho extradition of the Hungarian refugees, aml [am] the appearance of the English teet [tee] in the which had vindicated the rights of independent nations. He then applied himself to the spe- [se- specific] cific [Pacific] case of the claims upon Greece, to which it was ob- [objected] jected, [ejected] that the demands were unlawful; that their amount was insignificant and exaggerated that the manner in which they were urged was impcrious [impress] and uncaHedt [enacted] for; and that the time for exacting redvess [redness] was inop- [in op- inopportune] portune. [fortune] He denied that there was anything in the claims contrary to the law of nations, which was a system of general morality, the rules of which were somewhat vague. But how had they been interpreted in practice France in 1831 had sent a fiect [fact] into the Tagus to exact reparation for injuries suffered by French subjects, our offer of mediation being refused. In 1842 the French government had in a similar manner obtained redress fur its subjects at St. Sal- [Salvador] vador. [vat] There were.many similar.instances.on the part of France, America, and Exgland [England] herself; and with weak nations it was.a merciful mode-of proceeding in such cases, not to declare war, but to blockade their ports and take possession of certain property. For many years there had been continual complaints. of the conduct of the Greek rovernment [Government] towards British subjects, letters from our Ministers remaining unopened and, of course, unanswered. in Mr. Finlay's case, his land had been taken possession of, not for great national interests, but for a garden in which the king might disport himself at the expense-of a British subject, who was refused all payment whatever. Heapplied [Applied] to Lord Aberdzen [Aberdeen] to intercede with the-Greek government; Lord Aberiteen [Aberdeen] acknowledged the justice of his claims, and directed Sir E. Lyons to urze [use] them; but Mr Finlay ob- [obtained] tained [gained] no redress. M. Pacifico, [Pacific] on a Sunday, when the Christians of Athens were at church, had his house attacked by a mob, headed by certain young noblemen, his family Leaten, [Eaten] and his whole. property destroyed. He cared' not what M. Pacifico [Pacific] he was born a British subject, and Ead [AD] a right to demand the protection of He appealed to the Greek government, and obtaining no repa- [reap- reparation] ration he sought that protection. Had it been Baron Rothschild who had bzen. [been] thus attacked, ali [al] Europe would have rung vith [with] the outrage; but M. Pacifico [Pacific] being a poor Jew he was treated with insult and his demands set aside. it had been said that international law forbade coimpliagize [compliance] with such an appeal,; this he denied, and. he showed what would be the-effect of such an interpretation of the law in despotic countries. Then it was said that these were iso- [is- isolated] fated cases but there were other cases, and if we once relaxed, in the case of half-civilized nations, the rules by which the subjects of this country are guarded abroad, there would be no safety for English conznesce. [conscience] Mr. Roe- [Roebuck] buck then went into a minute examination of the details of the transactions betwixt M. Gros [Gross] and Mr. Wyse [Wise] at Athens, and Lord Palmerston and M. Drouyn [Drown] de Lhuys [Hus] in England, anl [an] concluded by expressing a hope that Mr. Hume would not, by persevering in his amendment, enable members to ride off from, deciding upon the general policy of the government, Air. HUME here intimated that he would not press bis amendment on the attention of the house. .......Sir F. THESIGER, [THESE] in phyuant [pheasant] answer to. Mr. Roebuck, opposed the motigh, [might] which was supported by Mr. Wood. Sir J. GRAHAM said, he engaged in this discussion most reluctantly but ina question of this k'nd intentional ab- [absence] sence [Spence] would be cowardice, and with the sentiments he en- [entertained] tertained [entertained] silence was impossible. He had given to the gevernment [Government] for the last. four ycars [years] an independent and hexest [exist] support, thinking that from the state of parties it was his duty to do so; he had no feeling of hostility tosvards [towards] the government but the house was called upon to disquss [discuss] not tke [the] narrow question of Greece, fur Mr., Roebuck, in conce t, [once t] With the goverrment, [Government] had opened a much larger question, Do you, on the whole, approve of the policy which has been pursued by the government with reference to our foreign relat'o. s [relate'o. s] since their accession to power T'o that large quest'on he show) Laddy [Lady] s3himseif. [himself] He had been a member of Lord Grey's government when the separation vf Belgium from Holand [Holland] took place but this was in con- [conference] earrence [Clarence] with all the great powers of Europe. The dan- [an- dangerous] gerous [grouse] nature of cur interference, after the retirement of Lord Grey, was pointed out by Lord Howick when Sir R. Peel was at the head cf affairs. Sir James here read an extract from Lord Howick's speech. in 1844, recommending an abstinent course of forcign [foreign] policy, and ther [the] proceeded to contrast with these sound and prudent principles the policy smbraeed [embraced] by Lord Palmerston immediately adter [after] his acces- [acres- accession] sion [ion] topower, [to power] Hereada [Headache] frora, [fora] his lordship. upon.

Guizot, Bad uced [used] a more serious result. StrJanes [Strangers] then severel [severe] eriticised [criticised] the conduct of Lord Palmerston in relation to the afeirs [affairs] of Italy, especially his refusal, when asked by Austria, ta mediate in the Lombardy question, the consequence of which refusal, he bclieved, [believed] had been the Disurrection [Direction] of THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, JUNE 29, 1850. Huitigary [Hungary] and the intervention of Russia in Austrian politics. He condemned the imprtdent [imprudent] act of sending a British fleet into the Dardenelles, [Dardanelles] The excuse made was, that the fleet had been driven by stress of weather. Was that con- [consistent] sistent [distant] with the fact Approaching the Greek question, Sir James pointed out the offensive language held Lord Palmerston towards the Greek ministers. Much, he ad- [admitted] mitted, [fitted] might be said in vindication of the claims of Mr. Finlay and M. Pacifico [Pacific] but they were the least important part of the question the nicest and most difficult part was the territorial claim to the islands of Cervi [Service] and Sapienza, [Sapien] over which Mr. Roebuck, with the skill of an advocate, had lightly With respect to the transactions growing out of the intervention of France, he thought it was a great misfortune that the Convention of London had not been at once accepted. Sir James touched the Danish dispute, and, again referring to the frustration of all the views of Lord Palmerston at the courts of Spain, Portugal, and Rome, observed that it was because the noble lord was not not a minister of Austria, Russia, or France, but, par the minister of England, he was invited to vote that he had maintained the honour and dignity of this ; conntry. [country. This vote he could not consent to give. Omthe [Other] motion of Mr. B. OsporNe [Osborne] the debate was ad- [adjourned] urned. [turned] The other business having been disposed of the house ad- [adjourned] journed [joined] at 1 o'clock. Tuesday, June 25. THE ADJOURNED DEBATE ON OUR FOREIGN POLICY. Mr. BERNAL OSBORNE, in a brilliant speech, answered the arguments adduced by Sir James Graham, and ably de- [defended] fended the course which Lord Pahnerston [Preston] had pursued while at the head of our foreign affairs.......Lord Joms [Jos] MANNERS opposed the motion, Mr. ANSTEY could not com- [comprehend] prehend [present] it, and therefore would not vote upon it, while Mr. CocHRANE [Cochrane] made a fierce attack on Lord Palmerston. Lord PALMERSTON began by insisting upon the impor- [import- importance] tance [lance] of the question, which concerned not only the tenure of office by an individual or a government, but involved principles of national policy, and the interests, honour, and dignity of this country. He observed that those who had thought themselves strong enough to try to take the government by storm ought not to have been content with obtaining an expression of the opinion of the House of Lords it was either their duty to have sent down the reso- [rose- resolution] lution [Lotion] for the concurrence of this house, or those connected with the party there should have proposed a confirmation of the resolution. However, the question now was whether this house would adopt the resolution, which involved the future and the past, laying down for the future a prineiple [principle] of national policy which he considered totally incompatible with the interests, rights, and honour of this country, and the happiness of other countries. The principle, which the person who moved it was obliged to modify, was that Bri- [Bro- British] tish [this] subjects in foreign lauds were entitled to nothing but the protection of the laws and tribunals of the country in which they might happen to be, and were not to look for any protection from their own country and the House of Lords had not limited this principle to constitutions coun- [con- countries] tries. He denied this doctrine, which was a doctrine upon which no English minister had acted, and the people of England would never suffer any minister to act upon it. He contended, however, for no such principle as that Bri- [Bro- British] tish [this] subjects in foreign countries were to be above the laws. In the first instance, they were. bound to have recourse to the laws of the land but there might be cases in which the tribunals were not.of a character to inspire confidence, and the rule would not apply to despotic or nominally con- [constitutional] stitutional [constitutional] governments. The noble lord then gave a short history of the.Greek State, and deseribed [described] the nature of our relations with it. The object of this government was to base the institutions of Greece upon the representative prin- [pain- Preference] France included, were adverse to our views. of the absence of a Constitution in Greece. was, that the whole system of the government was full of abuses. The police, in particular, practised tortures of the of the most revolting kind upon both sexes. There were in Greeee [Green] a great number of persons, Maltese, Ionians, as well as British subjects, whom we were bound to protect; but it was the practice of the Greek authorities to make no distinction between Maltese, Ionians, and their own jects. [sects] Lord Palmerston then detailed the alleged insults which had been offered to British subjects in Greece, and showed the moderation and reasonableness of the demands made for reparation and with reference to the case of Mr. - Finlay, he justified his claim, which for fourteen years the Greek government had put aside with shuffling excuses, and which had not been, as asserted, finally and conclu- [conclusion- conclusively] sively [lively] settled. With respect to the case. of M. Pacifico, [Pacific] whose character, whatever it might be, was no reason why he shoukl [should] be robbed with impunity by a mob, headed by the son of the minister of war, he could get no redress, and we were, therefore, entitled to call upon the Greek govern- [government] ment [men] for compensation, but they had denied the principle of the claim, so that it must either have been abandoned or enforced; and the course adopted of making reprisals was acted upon with great. mcderation. [consideration] In these circunr- [circular- circumstances] stances the French government tendered, and we readily accepted, their good offices, the extent and conditions being distinctly understood, namely, that they were not to involve the negation ef the principle of the demands. It was also understood between himself and M. Drouyan [Ryan] de Lhuys [Hus] that Mr. Wyse [Wise] should not determine when the mis- [is] sion [ion] of M. Gros [Gross] had failed, and if a difference. of opinion occurred between M. Gros [Gross] and Mr. Wyse [Wise] on those points. which the former was competent to discuss, the latter was to refer home for instructions. Lord Palmerston entcred [entered] very minutely into the details and dates of the communi- [common- communications] cations between the different parties in the negotiations, which had reached this point, that Mr. Wyse [Wise] had consented to accept from the Greek government the sun suggested by M. Gros, [Gross] namely, 150,000 drachmas, when the latter raised a new objection on a point respecting which he was not com- [competent] petent [patent] to act, and withdrew from the negotiation. An im- [in- impression] pression [Prussian] had gone abroad that on the 24th of April M. Gros [Gross] had received and communicated to Mr. Wyse [Wise] the draught of the convention of London, which had not been proposed to him (Lord Palmerston) until the Lith, [With] and. not wzgreed [agreed] on until the 18th, [the] and that with a knowledge of this convention Mr. Wyse [Wise] had renewed hostilities. This was t-tally untrue. Mr. Wyse [Wise] received no information from M. Gros [Gross] as to the draught of the convention until the.2nd of May. He was sorry that the convention did not arrive at Athens until after the other arrangement had been made, but this was not his fault, and the negotiations had not been put an end to by Mr. Wyse, [Wise] but by M. wros [rows] himse [himself] f, who had afterwards an opportunity of re- [resuming] suming [summing] them, but again declared thas [has] he had with- [withdrawn] drawn, The negotiations between the Enyzlish [English] and French gove [give had come to a satisfactory concluston, [conclusion] and the government were ready to accept such parts of the convention as were still applicable to things to be done, instead of the arrangement nrade [trade] on the spot. Lord Pal- [Palmerston] merston [Merton] then discussed the question relating to the two islands, respectizg [respecting] which his opinion, he said, was most clear and decided, and it was supported by that of Lord Aberdeen. The islands-that of Sapienza [Sapien] haying been in 1804 aggregated to Zante, [Ante] and Cervi [Service] to Cerigo-had [Craig-had] alvexs [salves] been understvod [understood] to belong to the Septinsular [Peninsular] territory, and if the Greek government took possession of them, they intruded themselves into the territory of the Ionian State. P Phis question, however, did not form part of the demands upon the Greek government it, to fair discussion in conjunction with France and Russia. Approaching, then, the wider field taken by Sir James Graham, Lord pursued in the variovs [various] instances. by Sir James and Mr. Cochrane-Belgium and Holland, Portugal, Spain, France, Switzerland, and Italy--denying the charge that he had eneouraged [encouraged] revolution. The adyocates [advocates] of temperate reform, he observed, were always stiomatised [stigmatised] as the tars of revelution. [resolution] Lord Minuto [Minute] went to Italy at the express desire of the Pope, and the wish of the Roinan [Roman] government had been conveyed im [in] a manner which seemed to denote that they had Lord Minto in their eye. They said the Pope was desirous of niprocing [prising] the administrative imsti- [inst- institutions] tutions [institutions] of the country, and requested that an English agent. of rank might sent, who kad [ad] the-entire cenfidence-of [confidence-of] her Majesty's government. He advised only administrative. reforms, and if nothing more had happened and his advice had been followed, Italy would have acquired great addi- [add- additional] tional [national] strength. The policy of the government was to prevent revolution-it was a policy of improvement and of The propriety of the intervention on behalf of the. ungarian [Hungarian] refugces [refugees] had not been questioned but it, had been said that the flect [Fleet] should not have been sent to the Dardanelies; [Dardanelles] but he contended that this was a wise and prudent measure of defence-not of offence, for he denied that it was a threat, against Russia or Austria, but the entrance of the fiect [fact] into the Straits was not in consequence of, kat [at] contrary to, his instructions to.Sir S. Canning. The noble lord concluded a speech. of pearly five outa [out dev [de] tion [ion] in the following powerful language -I think I have now gone threngh [threaten] (loud cheers) all the heads of the charge ; Which have been stated in this debate. I think I have. ' shown that the foreign policy of the government in.all these transactions with respect to which its conduct has been im- [in- impugned] pugned, [pine] has throughout been guided by those principles which, according to the resolution of the hon. and learne [learn] gentleman, ought to regulate the conduct of the.govern- [government] ment men] of England in the management of foreign affairs. (Cheers.) T believe and think that the principles on, which we have acted are those which are entertained by the great ciple [Copley but the advice and influence of the other powers, , One evil Palmerston reviewed at great length the policy le kad [ad] Mass of the poople [people] of England. (Cheers.) am convinced these principles are calculated-so far as the influence of England may be permitted property to be exercised with t to the destinies of other countries-to conduce to the welfare and happiness of mankind, to the advancement of civilization, to the maintenance of peace, to the develop- [development] ment [men] of the resources and to the prosperity of alt other countries as well as of the eountry [country] in which we live. (Cheers.) I do not complain of the conduet [conduct] of these who have made this the wean a attacking ber [be] Majesty's government. e governm [govern a great eountry [country] like this is undoubtedly an object of fair legitimate emoula- [Emil- Emulsion] tion [ion] to men of all shades of opinion. It is noble thing to be allowed to guide the policy and mftuence [evidence] the destinies of sueh [such] a country as-this, and, if ever it was an object ef honourable ambition, more than ever it must be so at the moment at which I am speaking (eheers); [cheers] for while we have seen, as stated by the right bon. [on] barenet, [baronet] the earthquake rocking Europe from side to side-while we have seen thrones shaken, shattered, Icvelled, [Travelled] institutions overpowered and destroyed-while in almost every country of Europe there have beon [been] conflicts which have deluged the land with blood, from the Atlantic to the Black Sea, from the Baltie [Baltic] to the Mediterranean, this country has presented a spectacle honourable to the people of England and worthy of the admiration of mankind. (Loud cheers.) We have shown that liberty is compatible with order; that indivi- [divine- individual] dual freedom is reconcilable with obedience to the law. (Hear, hear.) We have shown the example of a nation in which every class of society accepts with cheerfulness the lot which Providence has assigned to it, and at the same time every individual of each class is constantly striving to raise himself in the social scale,-not by injustice, not by violence and illegality, but by persevering eonduet, [ended] the sustained and energetic application of moral and intellectual faculties with which his Creator has endowed him. (Loud cheers.) Sir, I say that to govern such a people as that, is, indeed, an object worthy of the ambition of the noblest man who may live in the land, and therefore I find no fault with those who may think any opportunity a fair one for endeavouring to place themselves in so distin- [distinct- distinguished] guished [gushed] and henourable [honourable] a position. (Cheers.) But, sir, I contend that we have nof, [of] in our foreign policy done any- [anything] thing to forfeit the confidence of the country. I contend that, whether in this matter or in that we may. have acted wp to the opinions of one person or of another- [another and] and indeed it is hard, as we all know by one individual and rivate [private] experience, to find any number of men agreeing in any matter on which they may not be equally possessed of the details of the facts and cirewmstances [circumstances] and reasons and conlitiens [contains] which led to action-yet I say that, making allowance for those differences of opinion which may fairly and honourably be expected among those who. concur in general, I will maintain that the principles that can be traced through all our foreign transactions as the guiding rule and directing course of our proceedings are such, as in ney [ne] opinion, deserve the approbation of the country, and I fearlessly challenge the verdiet [verdict] which the. house may give on the question that is now brought before it as a political, as a commercial, as a constitutional coun- [con- country] try, whether the principles which have governed the foreign policy of her Majesty's government, whether the duty of ra ing protectioa. [protection] to. our subjects abroad (hear, hear), which we have-considered as the guide of our conduct, are proper and fitting im [in] those who are charged with the vernment [Government] of England, and whether, as in days of old a Roman held himself to be free from indignity when he could say Civis Civil] Romanus [Roman] sum, a British subject shall consider-himself in foreign countries as protected by the vigilant eye and strong arm of his government against in- [injustice] justice and wrong. e noble lord on resuming his seat was greeted with loud and prolonged cheering.) The debate was then adjourned till Thursday, and the house broke up at half-past two. Wednesday, June 26. County Rates BiLL.-Sir [Bill.-Sir] H. HatrorD, [Hatred] in moving the second reading of the County Rates Bill, justified its ob- [object] ject [jet] upon the ground that these rates, although they were nominally paid by the occupier, fell upon the owner, and that the relief it afforted [afforded] to the former, by transferring the rates altogether to the owners, would, in the condition of the tenant farmers, be opportune.......Mr.C. LEWIs [Lewis] opposed the bill, as contrary to. the general principle of the law of England, that the incidence of these rates shall be upon the owner except under special and peculiar circumstances, and he moved to defer the second reading for six months....... Sir J. PAkENGTON [partaken] recommended Sir H. Halford not to per- [persevere] severe with the bill, and, after some-discussion, the bill was lost. Larceny SUMMARY JURISDICTION BILL.-On the order for the third reading of the above bil, [bill] Sir-GEorcE [Sir-George] Strick- [Struck- Struck] F LAND condemned the measure, and moved to defer it for six months. Mr. M. MILNEs [Miles] seconded this amendment, which was likewise supported by Mr. S. Crawford and Mr. M'CULLaGH, [M'Cull] and opposed by Sir J. PAKINGToN, [Parkinson] Mr. Rice, Mr. BANKES, and Mr. AGLIONBY....... [AGONY] Upon a division the third peading [reading] was carried by 119 against 25, and the bill passed. The Co second reading by 103 to 84. ACCIDENTs [Accidents] ON BILL.-Mr. NEWDEGATE [NEWGATE] moved the second reading of this bill, the object of which was to make it incumbent upon railway companies in cases of accident to send for medical assistance, without incurring a. liability to expense unless the accident arose from the negligence of the railway officers. If the party was unable F to pay the the company mizht [might] recover it from the parish.......Mr. ELLIs. [Ellis] protested against the injustice of confining this obligation to railway companies, and moved. to defer the seconct [second] reading of the bill for six months....... Mr. ADDERLEY supported the bill, which cast no liability upon railway companies except in cases of their own negli- [Neil- negligence] gence....... [Gents] Colonel StstHoRe [Store] also supported the bill, and regretted that it did not go further, and. campel [camel] railway companies to make ample compensation to parties who suffered througls [through] their neglect.......Mr. LABOUCHERE [LABOURER] could not recommend the house. to agree to the bill, which was extremely objectionable in principle. Its effect was to alter the general law of principal and agent; to compel , tailway [railway] companjes [companies] in alt cascs [cases] to call in medical assist- [assistance] ance, [once] they being responsible in the tirst [first] instance for the expense. At present the companics [companies] were ultimately liable for medical accidents arising from the fault of their scrvants, [servants] and there were no special cireumstances [circumstances] 'which would justify the application to them of a particular rule.......Mr. SPOONER contended that there were special circumstances, that the object of the bill was the general liability of railway companies it merely provided that there should be no dely [delay] in the first instance in sending for The ATTORNEY-GEN- [GENERAL] ERAL [EARL] said his objection was that, the bill did-alter the law, and in one case only, and nothing was so bad as excep- [except- exceptional] tienal [alienate] lezislation......Mr. [legislation......Mr] RicaRDO [Richard] likewise opposed the bill, which on,a division was rejected by 108 aganisé [against] 53. Mr. Kroc obtained leaye [leave] to bring in a bill to give 'further facilities for the improvement of towns in Ireland.

Flandin [Flan din] made his appearance in the tribune to rcad [read] his report on the President's Dotation [Station] Bill, the chamber having desired to hear it in full. The report concluded by proposing to amend the bill as follows. Art. 1. An extraordinary credit of 1,600,000f. opened te the Minister of Finance, for the expenses which have been incurred in 1849 and 1850, in consequence of the This credit shall be charged by halves upes. [apes] the budgets of 1849 and 1850. [W. The Assembly being consulted, fixed the discussion for Monday. The report was lis- [is- listened] tened [tend] to in silence by the majority, but some passages elicited murmurs from the left. General de Lahitte [Latte] next ascended the tribune, and announced that the Greck [Greek] dispute had been settled, by the English Minister agreeing to the terms of the London treaty, by sub- [substituting] stitwting [starting] for the chuses [causes] of the arrangement concluded at Athens on the 27th of April, which have not yet been executed, the corresponding stipulations of the convention agreed to in London on the 19th April. This communication was received with loud applause on the right, and the Assembly then adjourned. On Saturday the proceeding were of very little im- [in- importance] portance, [importance] the Assembly being chiefly occupied with long and unimportant specches [speeches] from M. Manguin [Manning] and others. The Detation [Station] Bi came under discussion in the Assembly on Monday, when the Finance Minister stated that the Government, anxious to meet the views of the majority in 2 conciliatory spirit, would accept the amendment of M. Dampierre, [Damper] viz.- There is opened to the Minister of Finance, on the budget of the year 1850, a credit of 2,160,000f. for the extraordin [extraordinary] ex- [expenses] penses [senses] of the presidency during 1849 and 1850. [W. M. Mattieu [Matter] de In Drome [Rome] opposed the motion, as being at variance with the economical principles which should actuate the republic. M. Durufle [Trifle] moved, as an amend- [amendment] ment, [men] that the sum proposed by M. Dampierre [Damper] should be granted for 1850. only, and not for 1849 and 1550. Gen. Chargarnier [Charging] warmly sup this amendment, which was carried by a majority of 46. The adoption of this amendment is stil [still] more favourable for govern- [government] ment, [men] and produced intense sensation. Taking the number ef the Mountain and the Centre Gauche, who vote together on what are called cabinet questions, at about 240, nearly 70 must on this occasion have seceded from the ordinary majority. These 70 are composed of what is called the queue of the Legitimists, [legitimatise] the ultra- [Australians] Orleanist [Orleans] portion of which the Assembiee [Assembly] Nutionale [National] is the organ, and a portion of the tiers parti, [part] of which M. Dufaure [Future] is the chief, but which does not usually follow the other portion in an adhesion to the Mountain against the Government. Up to Saturday evening, the most sanguine of the partizans [partisans] of the Dotation [Station] Bill did not calculate upon a majority of more than 8 or 10. The comparatively large majority with which the amend- [amendment] ment [men] has been carried is admitted by all parties to be due to M. Thiers. [This] The success of the amendment was known in every part of Paris half an hour after the vote, and seemed to give much satisfaction to the great majority of the population. SPAIN. Our accounts from Madrid are of the 9th instant. The Gazette publishes a report of the Alcade [Arcade] of Col- [Coleman] menar [mean] Viejo, stated that at 11 o'clock a.m. on the 17th, [the] 32 armed persons, some of whom were mounted, pre- [presented] sented [scented] themselves at the bridge del [de] Granjal [Grange] on tho Man anares. [ares] That functionary immediately gave the nece sary [nee say] orders to the alcades [arcades] ofthe [of the] neighbouring towns, and sallied out in pursuit of the malefactors. with a detachment of civic guards and a large body cf peasants. They evertook [overtook] them at Puente Nuevo, [Nov] and, after a resistanee [resistance] of half an hour, captured the entire band. All these officers had served in the Carlist [Carlisle] army.. Several persons were arrested in Madrid in consequence of disclosures made by some of the prisoners. It was believed they intended to repair to the mountains of Toledo and proclaim Charles V. King of Spain. The Queen has experienced some pains, and it was at first said that Her Majesty's delievry [delivery] was at hand. The physicians, however, were of opinion that it would not take place for some time. TURKEY. Letters from Belgrade state that a revolution against the Turks had broken out in Bulgaria. The three dis- [districts] tricts, [tracts] Widdin, [Winding] Gurgyssova, [Gorgeous] and Belgradcieza, [Belgrade] are stated to be in open insurrection. The insurgents were marching against the fort of Belgradcieza, [Belgrade] which con- [contains] tains [trains] but a,smallf [a,small] garrison, but an immense quantity of the munition of war. Another statement is that the fort is already in their hands, AMERICA, The Asia arrived at Liverpool on Saturday morning. By her we have received our files of papers from New York to the 11th, Boston to the 12th, [the] and. Halifax to the 14th instant, all inclusive. At Washington, on the 9th instant, there was con- [considerable] siderable [considerable] excitement among the people, and much bustle among the officials, in consequence of the receipt of information said to haxe [have] come from Cuba. This news was, that sonre [sore] Spanish cruisers had captured another Ameri- [Amer- American] can brig, having on board a number of passengers fur California, which had been taken into Havannah, [Hannah] and the Americans on board had been treated as prisoners. The American consul, it was said, had protested in the most emphatic manner, and' demanded the release of all parties, and the vessel too. The accounts fu ther [the] stated, that not only did the Spanish Captain-General refuse compliance with the demand, but immediately ordered the American consul to be imprisoned, which, having been done, caused great excitement The accounts received at New York stated that a Cabinet Council had been held, and that a general feel- [feeling] ing prevailed that a declaration of war would be deter- [determined] mined upon, but subsequently it was stated that Con- [Congress] gress [grass] was to be consulted, and that a Message from the President to the Senate was in course of preparation. On the following day, however, there was a complete lufl; [full] and. as no Message from the President was pre- [presented] sented [scented] to Congress, an opinion prevailed that the whole thing was a hoax. General Lopez had been. arrested, in New Orleans, and it was said that it was certain he would be tried for his crimes against the American laws. The slavery question remained pretty much in the same state as at the date of the last advices. [advice] Mr. Ben- [Benton] ton had brought forward a motion for postponing the compromise. for an indefinite period of time, but it was not expected that he would succeed in getting it carried. It was, however, thought that the step woukl [would] only tend to increase the difficulties and delay the vote on M-Cloy's motion. Of the ultimate success of this, we regret to say. there is 20. hope.
