The ImtUigeitcfr, noticing the extraordina ry oagerncs* with which the French people responded to the last demand of the Emperor for money to prosecute the Russian war, saye: Th>: promptitude and readine*s with which the }>eoplc cf Francc, of all cla*>ea, have floek ?d together to contribute their mite to the enormous Iran demanded by the Emperor to ?enable bim to carry on the war against Rus sia, we regard aa one of the most extraordinary tacts in the fiscal annals of nations. It will be remembered that the sum required was seven hundred and fifty millions of francs, and that a sum amounting to more than five time* that amount was subscribed ; that is, more than (?even hundred and fifty millions of dollar*, instead of/nww. Subscriptions of any amount were received, so that tho poorest individual in France might have an opportunity of show ing his interest in tho glory of " La Grand \atton ;" and a ierr Urge portion of the wholo amount subscribed was in sums below ten dollars. While ruch an avarice of military glory exists, and such prodigality is lavished upon the meant, of keeping up an army, there is some reason to fear that those who yet look to any near pacification of Europe will be sadly disappointed."

Mo?t Interesting from the City of Mexi co- Last night a nail brought ns important and reliable advices from the City of Mexico to the 19th. Santa Anna, on reaching Perote in his flight formally abdicated; and on the 18th he pro mulged at thnt point, not onlj his abdication but a long and able prounciamcnto, the bar den of which is, of course, that he is a suffei Ing patriot. His continued bitterness against this Government is evident ia the following extract from that paper, viz : " T>? scandal, dbhonor, and perfidy of hi, enemies reached the extreme of associating not only with the filHbusten of the North but with troops of the United States: who pac ing the frontier in the disguise of deserters are led by rebels and unworthy Mexicans who teach tbem the road by which to invade their native land ; to assassinate with rifiof the Me*{oan soldiers who defend the sover eignty and integrity of their territory." It thus seems that he (Santa Anna) has taker, up the foolish cry of somo of the anti-Adminis tration journals of our country, reforred to ii another article of to-day's Star. It will bi reoollected that, after the same fashion, in hi. pronunciamentos during our war with Mexico he essayed to use against this Government the arguments and roorbacks of his sympathiser; in the United States. In the midst cf the excitement in the capi tal, caused by Santa Anna's flight, the Amer ican Minister procured tho release of the only two American prisoners there. Letwcen the yth and tho 13th tho press wa^ i free, aud the consequence was, publication* i that generated the riot in which the residence of Santa Anna's mother-in-law, and those of most of the Minister of State, Santa Anna's two printing offices, Ac., were destroyed. Tho new provincial government is entirely irregular, revolutionary, and of course unsta ble. General Vega got it up for his own ben efi*., but lost the fruit of his scheme, as he re ceived but 18 votes of tho junta of department? (appointed by htmieif) to 26 for General Car rera, and 3 refusing to vote. Carrera, how ever, preserves order, and in temporarily re* spected and confided in by all good and the foreigners. It is thought 1 simply .-trivo to bring order out of bow to the formally-declaredwiU of*"the na tion when tncy may be expressed. A r.ew National Legislature will be prompt ly called together by Carrera, which, on meet ing, will determine what shall be the next phase of Mexican governmental affair?. Thing are looking much hotter for peace, good order and justice to all in the city.of Mexico thai might be expected, in view of tfie occurrences of which we write above. The Cause of the Catastrophe.?Enough h already known of the circumstances connected with tho recent dreadful railroad accident near Burlington, N. J., to enable us to locate the original cause thereof with tolerable cer tainty. Tnus, the oauso of the delay of the New lork train at Jersey City was the want of care and attention to the condition of th*. C.?rs on the part of the company's agents and servants at that point. Twenty-five minutet were list there, which made that train behind time. The anashed-up train obeyed instruc tions to the letter, except in backing through Burlington at a greyer speed than six mile* per hour. That's pretty clear. TLt engineer and conductor in running backward; on hearing the emaehed-up train from Phila delphia approaching, ran too fast very proba bly. But if Dr. Hannegan had not been cross ing the railroad just at the time, no accident whatever would have occurred. It seems that this is tho third occasion in which the carriage of that individual has got into trouble on the track of the railroad near Burlington. On this occasion the driver, who was deaf and was seated in the carriage so as not to have a view tp and down the railroad when crossing it, hud waited until the train had passed, and not thinking that it might possibly have to back to get out of the way of tho delayed and momentarily expected down train, was in the act of cros ing the railroad when his velrsle was crushed to atoms by the force of the back ing train, returnicg at a desperate speed. The danger was discovered by those in the carriage only in time to allow them to spring out and thus save their own lives. Rev. llr. Donelan.?A writer in the Organ doubts whether the Rev. Mr. Donelan of this city has been in Norfolk sinoe the prevalence of tho yellow fever. Wo tak<; pleasure in assuring him of its truth, though we wero in error in stating, not long sin^e. that he had returned thither. We wore mis informed on that ooea^ion. He, however, ap plied to his bishop for permission to return there, and to tho bishop of Virginia for per mission to lubor for the time in his diocese Two clergymen froin tho District of Columbia, of Mr. Djnelan's persuasion, are now in Nor folk and Portsmouth?tho pastor of Trinity church,Georgetown, and theRev. Mr. Woodley. Six more, connected with Georgetown College, have volunteered, and await orders to proceed thither. Six Sisters of Charity, from the Dis trict of Columbia, are down there, laboring in their heaven'y vocation. These facts speak volumes in true praisa of tho manner in which th3 Catholic clergy and religious sisterhood discharge the most trying duty of their pro fessionsof religion. Mexico ?The "fusion" press of the North, always kcen-cosed for mares' nests, disoovers in tne success of the party of Alvarc*, in Mex ico, the finger-marks of the existing terrible National A Immigration of the United States! If the skies fall next, and all good people catch larks in abundance, they will probably trace that event clearly to the machinationsoi those terrible fellows now in power in this country. Wc need hardly contradict such nonsense as that of which we are writing; ai experience demonstrates that though poli ticians who get up sush storier, base their plaas on tho axiom that the publio are essen tially fools, when the votes are counted out it turn* out that thty are the nincompoops, who proceed on any such assumption. Bat, writing seriously, we have to say that the inevitable destiny is close upon us. Sinee time was, a superior aud more powerful republic has never yet failed by degree* to absorb the territory of weaker powers immediately contiguous to it. This has, so far, been tho general law of national nature?the law, without a single ex ception recorded in history, if o?t memory serve! us. - : t . . We cannot reasonably expect to ie exempt from its operation, however much the ocmser vative among us may deplore and deprtcate the idea of the acquisition of Mexico. The pirty who bare turned Santa Anna out cf | pjwer, arc that party who during the Mexican war were eager to have this Government con tinue and maintain its authority over the di voted republic. There is no mistake in this fact. 8o, among the lint nets of the new Gov errmenf will be, in nil probability, to throw open wide the door to indiscriminate emigra tion from the United Stater of the North. Those who were bent on sacking Cuba, and those who wonld hare Joined Kinney'a foray n Central America bat for the firmnem of this Government, and tens of thousand! on thousands more will not be slow in aocepting the inyitation of the Alrares party, to Ameri canize Mexico. Under such circumstances, there is no law which makes it the dnty of or grants the power to the government of the United States to lift a finger to prevent such emigration as we do scribe; and those who know the history of may safely come to conclusions in ad vance, as to what is likely to be the grand finaie of ail these things in spite of any and all wishes to the oontrary wbioh may fill the breasts of the President and his constitutional ad vizors. Experience has proved that Mexico cannot exist as a Spanish republic, or indeed an a Spanish American despotism; as the govern* ment in the latter ca^o must rely on its troops, who, offioera and men, cannot be prevented from deserting any side for ono that promises to pay better. Thorough and interminable anarchy can only be prevented there by it? Americanization. This faot doubtless stares the leaders of the revolution in the face, and they will act on it speedily, or they have changed their views of the fitneas of things amazingly since General Quitman held the capital of the Atiesa as the United States military governor thereof. The difficulty of knowing-whet to do with it, almost alone prevented its being held when in our possession during the Mexiean war. The indisposition of our peoplo to to vast a pro ^?isular acquisition of course had its weight, also, in turning the scale against keeping Mex ioo as a dependency of t&is Republie, which we well know was being balanced in the minds of the American Government at the time to which we refer. We can soe no other solution of the problem than that indicated above?first, an indepen dent government there under the auspices of our ccuntrymen, somewhat like that of inde pendent Texas, and eventual absorption by this government. All this is to be the work 02 fate?of Providence?against which it will be useless to struggle, or no lessons of wisdom arc t) be drawn from the history of the nations that havo gone before us. A Change of Proprietorc.?Wo hear that the Hon. Bayard Clark, of New York, (now in this city,) ha#, perhaps through others, pur chased out all the shares in the Organ news paper at $100 per share ca^h down, and the balance, about $300 per share, in 3 months without interest. Our impression is that the papers in this transfer will be ready to be signed this afternoon. At the meeting of the Organ association on Tuesday night last, Messrs Ellis and Buscy are said to have op posed the transfer earnestly, but were voted down. It is our opinion that the money by whieh the purchase was made camo originally from the pocket of George Law, who figures ro ex t3nsively in political financiering?his fingers being at the work in the rcccnt Hard conven tion at Syracuse, on the 28th and 29 th inst., in the Binghamton Know Nothing convention on the 29th and 30th inst., and here in this matter Tuesday last, yesterday, and to-day We congratulate the city shareholders ou getting out of their speculation without loss?a rare occurrence, indeed, with those who boy stock in newspaper enterprises without being actually engaged in conducting tbem. We hear further that, by way of inducing the transfer, it is agreed that the old stockholders may buy back at par, if the Organ wins the public printing?in a horn, we faney. An Erroneous Humor.?Information to be relied on reached Washington this morning flatly contradicting the story that the yellow fever had broken out on the U. S. Ship St. Lawrence, the temporary receiving ship at the Norfolk station to which the recruits collected there for the service were sometime since transferred from the old and un&eaworthy ship ?jf-the-line, Pennsylvania.

There is agreat scarcity of vegetables, fruita, *??> Norfolk, and in order to induce the oonntry people to bring on suppliea, a temporary market house haa been ereeted at "Port Barbour," the upper end of Churoh street. The Howard Asaoeiation have taken posses sion of the old City Hotel for a hospital. Drs. Fenner and Beard, from New Orleans, two very distinguished physieiana, have assumed the oharge, and made all the arrangements for receiving patients. A letter from Norfolk, in the Petersburg Express, says: " It is now conceded by all of ou physicians that the frvet haabeoome epi demic throughout the entire city, and that no part, even to some distance beyond the sub urbs. is exempt from the infection.

The Late Accident on the Camdan and Amboy Baiiroad. In our paper of yesterday, we gave a pretty full account, as received by telegraph, of the terrible accident which occurred on Wedncs ?lay last; and now add further particulars. It appears that there were at least twenty three persons killed, and fifty or sixty persons wounded. The Philadelphia Ledger, in deseribing the dreadful occurrence, says: The first passenger car came in eollirion with a light pleasure wagon, driven by Dr. HVnc man, of Columbus, N. J., who attempted " cross the track in front of the cars. The wagon contained Dr. Hyneman, his wife, and two -hildren.

Two gentle men, in one of the cars wmkh was broken np, gel oat safely. bnt in what waj or Manner they could not tell?one of them recollect* getting on the outside of the car and jumping upon the bank of earth ; this is all he knows of the frightful and tragical affair. The Philadelphia North American gives the following description of the wreck of the ears: The hindmost car was throws from the traek, and driven backwards about one hen area yards, when another car was thrown di agonally across the track. One of the other cars was (breed through it, and thrown down an embankment on either side of the road. There were fire cars completely torn to pieces. A more sad wreck we ne>?r witnessed on s railroad. Oue of the cars was reduced to splinters. Another was cut in twain. One reversed, and the other end in an upright position, frightfully shattered. The other can were ripped from one end to the other, and beyond repair. Some of the heavy iron axles were twisted into a bow. The heary T rail waa bent is some places and torn from its fast enings, and the inside flanges cut as if by a powerful knife The wrecked cars ley on either side of the track a mournful and silent mouument of those who were an instant before the occupants of their seats, aad full of lift end hope. In some cases the mutilation was horrible One man had his arm torn off in a fearful manner. Another had an arm also torn oil and thrown some distanco up the embank ment, and his legs separated from his body, his heart and viasenB strewn along the track J* * distance. One or two others wept buried in the sand, and others were crushed to death between the sleepers. One man bad his scalp taken off; anotner had his thighs broken Several others had arms broken a no were '-cerated and bruised in the most dread ful manner. ?. Oant, in summing up the cause of this truly lamentable affair, says : p " ^ c*n onlj come to the conclusion that .rem all the facts as presented on the spot, the great cause of blame must rest on the shoul ders of the conductor of the up train. Hi* leaving Burlington within ten minutes of the time, and the train having the right of way. was a piece of r?*hnes? reprehensible in the the extreme. Again, the rate that the trail, was being baeked was decidedly wrong 0i coupe the engineer must have been terribly when he saw the danger from collision with th# down train, and perhaps from his backinS' m.v life waj pr served; but still the principle was wrong. Again, there was no warning given at the cross road, and l>r. iiyneman observed the train pass a few moment* before, thought all aafo. By the way. the bodies of his horses, one of whish was on each side of the track, was the causc of throwing the train off the track." 1^* Awxa akd Fix.?At one of the fashion able hops, this season, at the Ocean House, Newport, ft.
