Behind the litter, mingling indiscriminately with the members of the Royal family, followed the ministers, officers of every grade, and ct'iz-ms of every class, who had collected on the fir*t tidings of the catastrophe. Several clergymen, who also followed the cortege, ren -;e<l prayers for the royal dead. Tii- Prince, at the time of the accident, was alone in the carriage.

Robberies in Si. Peter's ai Florence.?On the last Sunday in June, while the church of St. Peter, at Florence, was crowded with people attending high mass, a heavy bench was suddenly thrown down with a loud crash, which re-echoed many times front the high and vaulted roof, creating an alarming srnsation? which was increased into a general terror by simultaneous cries front several voices that the roof was falling down. In the panic every oue rushed to the doors, struggling with such violence to get out, that numbers were severely injured, and fell senseless on the ground. This was the enect proposed by those who created the confusion, viz : a hand of thieves, believed to have come from Leghorn, who took advantage ofit to commit an immense number of robberies, and who not only drew the rings from the fingers of those whom they attacked, but brutally tore out the ear-rings from the cars of the female part of the congregation. The thieves made their escape with a valuable booty. Russia, Drkaufel Fire.?Sr. Pbtersm/rg, June 23.?On the 21st. instant, a dreadful fire destroyed the old salt works of Novo-I'solskyj in the government of Perm, the property of the. Mrogauofl family. The conflagration spread to the extent of 2| versts, and lasted three days.

The St Petersburgli Gazette gives the following account of the calamity, under the head of the place itself ; but it differs greatly as to the date, even making allowances for the If u-sian style:?" Perm, .May 14 (old style.)?In the Solikamish circle of our government, the NovoUsolskian salt-works, the ancient property of the Stroxanofl'family, experienced a dreadful visitation On the Oih of May, at 11 in the morning, the house ol one of the workmen took fire from some unknown cause. F.very measure lor extinguishing the fire was instantly employed : but unfortunately it reached a great quantity of nay which had been stored up, and then the flames spread rapidly over the whole quarter; neither human elforts nor resources of skill could set any bounds to tbe raging clement. The conflagration lusted during three days and three nights, and laid a space equal to 2^ versts in ashes. Thus the branch ot trade which gave life to lite industry ot the whole quatter, the numerous seething places built in stone or wood, mote than 15 storehouses, containing ail immense quantity of salt, about flft.itOO faihonts of firewood prepared for tire works, the ancient majestic Cathedral, the great edifices built iiietotie for the five proprietors, for the offices of the managers and clerks, and finally the 5.000 or 6,000houses, with the property within them, all suffered in the general ruin. The extent of the lossas to value, and even the number of houses that have disappeared, cannot as yefc be stated with jny certainty, in the neighbouring villages, and in the few hon?es left standing, the families of about 500 of the labourers in the suit-works arc lor the present quartered, and provided with necessaries.

The Alexandria correspondent of the Augsburg Gazette says that the reason of the flight of the Emir Abdallah. nephew of the Emir Beachir, on board the British vessel off Beyrout, was the attempt of Mustapha Pasha to force him to sign a petition to the Ptirtr Dir>nn>4t thf rpntoration nt th*?

The War In Aflglianlxtnn. Extract of a letter from a non-commissioned officer of IE M- 9th regiment of foot, dated "Camp, Jellalabad, 20th Apnl, 1W2 " "I think, when I wrote from Kawntonr, I told you our destination was Cabool. We marched from there 011 the morning of the 5th. We ascended the Heights in five hours, and found the enemy readylo receive >'s with a sharp tire, but in 8 hours gave way. i ne inianirv nan me urunt ni ine worK, particularly our regiment; we lost twenty men and a lieutenant, ami forty wounded ; we were five day" and nights on the top of the Heights with nothing but what we stood in. a continual firing kept up the whole time, and all we had to eat or drink was four or five mouldy biscuits and a quart of water, which we carried with us in stir canteens. We did not suffer so much from want of food ; it | was water we wanted most A continual biting of cartridges causes thirst. The Khyber Pass is u deep and narrow ra\ inc. overtopped with high mountains. After we aseentlcd the first height and drote the enemy off, we mounted them successively ; nnd as they fled we advanced, until we heat the whole of them amounting to about 8.000. It is calculated tliat fiOO of the enemy were killed- We had not an opportunity of taking any prisoners : for as they gave no quarter, neither did we.

Luckily they beat them off, leaving the plain on which *vi are now encamped strew ed with slain horses and men to the amount of b.nno We came to their relief in a few days after: so that there I is now an army ol 20,000 men, and not much fear of 1 our ever being attacked again.

It must certainly be received as a grea' calamity, as causing a Kegency of considerable duration It will be seen tha the French Funds have felt the shock most seriously, the Thiee per Cents, haviug fallen to 76 yesterday, although they subsequently rallied to 77.

I.ondox Corn Exchange, July It.?The alteration in the duties on foreign corn this week are on wheat, barley, anil peas, each having declined Is per qr, and on rye. which has advanced lsnerqr. We liavo been liberally supplied with English wheat, hut the trade continues in a very inanimate state at Monday's prices. The arrivals of foreign are large, and there being but few buyers hereto-day, we quote prices nominally at our former currency ; the same remark applies to free wheat. In barley, malt, beans, and peas there is no alteration. Our supplies ut Irish oats during this week have been small ; but hud.buycrs appeared to any extent, they might have purchased on easier terms. In "English and Scotch the same prices were asked without being realised. 1,111 mi'OOl Cotton Market, Ji lt la.?There is no alteration to remark in our quotations during the w eek.? The sales 011 each day have been considerable, but the inquiry has been met in so decided and general a manner as in preclude the possibility of any amendment in price. Holders have appeared disposed to uvail themselves of the present demand to reduce their stocks without seeking the slightest adv ancc. w hieh, indeed, w ith the present uncertainty as to the future, both as regurds the state of trade in Manchester, and tho prospects for the coming harvest, it would be difficult to realize. The common qualities ot American Cotton ranging from ;ijd to -ljd, which have for some time past, been gradually declining in value, have lately come into more general request, and are now, by reason of their relative cheapness, taken by many spinners in preference to Enst India kinds. The latter are in consequence not quite so firm as before, and some slight concession in price has been submitted to for quantity. Brazils and Egyptians continue w ithout change. The public sale of Surals this day went off without spirit, but at the full rates current by private contract. Of 3000 offerred, 710 only were sold at*3d to3fd,perlb. The sales of the week, with 6000 bales to-day, and a firm market, amount to 30,060 bags, including 4000 American and 300 Surat on speculation, and 1700 American, 200 Pernam and 100 Sural for export. The quotations, according to the standard now adopted by the Brokers' Association, are, fair Uplands 5jd, lair Mobiles Old, and fair Orleans 6Jp per lb. The import of the week is 30,0M bales, exclusive of four vessels arrived, but not reported. LiwsrooL Corn Exchange. Julv 11.?Since Tuesday, the 6th instant, the arrivals forthe corn-trade consist principally of foreign wheat, aud of Canada and United States Flour. Ol other articles the fresh supplies are light. The weather has been stormy, with frequent heavy showers of rain. There has been an improved demand for wheat from the town and country dealers, and several lots have been purchased for shipment to Ireland. All kinds have been held with increased lirmuess, and ou soma sorts an advance of Id to 2d has been obtained. Barrel Fiour has had a Ircsh sale, and United States as well as Canada is6d dearer. Several cargoes of foreign wheat, ailoat, have been disposed of at an advance of 3d; and a good many speculative purchases have been made of United States Flour, latterly at 30s. in quantity, and somewhat more for small parcels. At this day's market there was a large attendance ol town and country dealers, but the weather having cleared up, and tho Loudon report being diiferent from what was anticipated, the trade has been heavy. A moderate business only w as done in free wheats, and prices did not exceed the quotations of this day su'nnight. There w as a fair demand for Flour at 33s6d to 3-lsflJ for Canada, and at 36s to 361 for United States. There is again a pause in the demand for wheat aud flour in bond. Hatre, July 14.?Cottoxj.?The same stagnation that we have remarked iu our recent circulars, has continued without any abatement of its intensity sinco last report, and the same causes that have given riso to it, still weigh heavily upon our market. The universal excitement created by the elections, at present takes precedence of every other consideration, and almost exclusively absorhs public attention, which is thus diverted from its customary channels, and every branch of trade is consequently influenced by it in a greater or less degree. Business has therefore been very flat throughout the whole week, the buy ing having been merely from hand to mouth, but notwithstanding the prevalent depression, holders remain firm, and prices have not varied from our preceding quo tutioiu. Our stuck has nevertheless received further large accessions to it, and may now be computed at about 192,000 bales,a quantity almost, if not quite, uuprecctlcnted in the annals of our port ; and although it appears to be the general opinion that a revival is not far distant, an anticipation that would seem to be w arrauted by the loug protracted dulness, and the probability of pretty extensive wants for the manufacturing districts, which for some time past have been but scantily supplied, still (rom the large amount of the rrw material on hand, it can hardly be expected that any improvement in prices will yet take place. Sales from 7th to 16th July ?1461 bales, duty paid, f.Oln 90 ; l!h! do Mobile, do. 66a75 ; 719 Upland, do. 60a90 ; 36 Brazil, do. P6a96.60.

Printing cloths, however,continue as dull as ever; and In no description, cither of goods or yarn, can any improvement of pi ice lie noted. . Rochdalv, Monday?There has been a dull market today?not many buyers have attended, and the number of pieces sold has been limited. Though the quantity of bu siness lias been smaller, the prices have been stationary.? In the wool market prices remain the same ; but lamb and skin wools have been much inquired after, and are becoming rather scarce. Mexico and Texas, Tlie Mexicans have again invaded Texas and been driven back. Captain Elliott, the British envoy, has arrived there. The crops are line, and money is scarce. 'J'here Ik something remarkably similar in the threatenings ot Mexico and Texas. (Each proclaims its intention to invade the other, lor the purpose of subjugation. In both arc tnen added to the armed force,while-their Legislatures are deliberating as to the best means of procuring money?the great sinew of war. The finances and credit of both are moreover at a very low ebb ; nor can either boast of a leader of military science and the acknowledged capacity for so great an enterprise as the conquest of a nation. What, then, is the inference to be drawn 1 ?that the invasion of Texas will not be attempted by Mexico,'on a scale commensurate with success ?that the preparations of Texas will lead to nothing more than a few forays 111 the valley of the Kio del Norte, and perhaps some naval enterprises in the Gulf. A Frenchman, named Morin, who holds the runk of Captain in the Mexican navy, lately succeeded in capturing a 14 gun brig, off Canipeachy, manned by seventy of the Yutecanos. Several of the Texiun prisoners, after being released by the Mexican government, have fallen victims to the yellow fever at Vera Grnz. The American ambassador in Mexico, General Waddy Thouqsson. seemed to be on friendly terms with f^anta Anna, a few weeks ago. All those Texian prisoners that did not |ieri?h by yellow lever have returned home. Cansrin. From this part of the world there i* nothing very important.

With regard to our relations with England, the afternoon mail brings nothing new.

It is not unlikely, we learn, that the dine which the Dutch arbiter decided for, the Line of the St. Johns and the St. Francis, will be agreed to. But tlieu .Maine gets, what tha Dutch king did not give her, the navigation ot the titer, und this trebles the value of all tu>r tall pine trees. Westwardly of tha St. Francis, England takee u tract of mountain land, untimberod, and of no earthly value but as a boundary ; and she relinquishes to the United Stales Rouse's Point, the kay to Lake Champlain, and a large territory heretofore supposed to belong to New York and Vermont, but which turns out to he north af the 45th degree of latitude, and is therefore a part of Canada. It is said to be, and probably is, in consequence of this cession, thai the United States Government agrees to pay a small sum to each ot the Slates of Maine ana Massachusetts for the acres they have parted with ; not more than u quarter as much, however, as Gon. Jackson offered to give to Maine alone, during his Administration, in the year 1833. It is thought theru are questions of boundary further up, as the secretary of State has summoned here tha Commissioners, Ac. who ran the line, or endeavored to do so, unJer the Treaty of Ghent (but could not alwaya agrea) from the River St. Lawrence to tha Lake of the Woods; and it is supposed that all remaining questions, in that (atoft world, will be settled. > As to the Tnrieue other questions, not couuocled with boundaries, whleh are the subject of uegociatiou, nothing is known. Kverybody is hard at work, however, and Judging from men's laces, when met with in public, wo should say it Is expected that every thing will come out about right. The intercourse between our Government and the French Go*nmi?iancjB, to establish lines of kteam puckets between New York and France, is of the most friendly character; and ere long New York will be the grand port of entry for the line of stenmcrs between France and England.

Last Friday ilie cannons of " La Gomer" pealed forth in celebration of the t toujour which made the Puke d'Orleane heir to the crown of France, and yesterday, in leas than twenty-four hours after, the same heavy cannon sent ferth its thunder in minute claps for the death of the same. All the vessels of war in our harbor, the merchant ships in port, and the several castles on the island, displayed the tri-color flag at half mast, 011 learning the melancholy intelligence. The Great Western came into port with the tri-color also at half mast. A general gloom immediately pervaded the French portion of the eity, which rapidly spread, as the minute guns from " La Gotner" echoed and re-echoed the sad intelligence. The death of the Duke in the greatest, the severest cetustrophe that could happen to France. His eldest son, now, however, quite young, has become heir apparent by this accident, and the worst fears are entertained for the Egalilf family after the departure of Louis Philippe from this world.

The Court mat pursuant to adjournment, and yesterday'* proceedings were read, when the President stated that the Court was ready te hear the darencc, and the accused's counsel requested that he might he allowed to recall Mr. Elliott and question him relative to the fact of Lieut. Wilkee having, himself, loft the inscription on the box exposed to view, It being previously concealed. The Court wae cleared for delilieration, and ou its reopening, the Judge Advocate stated that the Court declined to reopen the oase. The accused's counsel then proceeded to road a defence which he had drawn up, which was a recapitulation of the principal evidence showing how completely it disproved the allegation of disrespect in marking the hox as charged in the first specification, as it was shown that ho had altered the mark at the suggestion of a brother officer, ami had declared at the time of so marking the box, that it was with the intention of his reclaiming it from the department, and it was fully proved that the accused had, instead of cx]>osing the mark when he saw it was exposed, turned it towards the bulkhead to conceal it. It also commented upon the testimony of Stew art, the captain's clerk, and the contradiction which it liHd received by the testimony of Midshipman Elliott, it also commented severely on the testimony of Lieut. Wilkes and the manner in which those charges had been preferred against the accused, and the character which hadhceti given the prosecutor by nearly every officer under his command, shewing tha spirit by which he was actuated tow Birds those w ho had offended hiin. It also referred to the attempts which had been made to impeach the character of the uccused, which had icsulted in shewing that uons could say he was disrespectful or insubordinate. The accused completed the reading ufthe defence by his own statement of the occurrences which were the "subject of the charges, and which are as follows "By the permission of the Court 1 will conclude, this mv delence by my own statement of the transaction which constitutes my crima, as it was noted down in writing by me, immediately after its occurrence.

There wai nothing on the trial calculated to show evidence of rca cause for the attack u' on hnn, although an ini|>ortaut wit lies* (a lady w e understand) is away, u ho it is suppose, could throw soine light upou the subject. Signor d'Alvcai testified that he had seen .Mrs. Suydam ouce ut the Astoi House, she being pointedout to hun, but ho never hail aiis convei sation with her d? gaietu d<- Cmur or otherwise. The Signor was the first w itness examined. He stule. that he w as nt Niblo's ouo e> ening in Bcjitembcr last?am went to the bar, with two Irieuds, to got some refresh ment. While in the act ot raising the glass, he w a* stubbed from behind in the mouth, his lips cut through, one of hit teeth kuocked out and another fractured. Peeling then must has e been some mistake, heJtui ni J suddenly round and asked what is all this? Ho saw the knife again raised to strike him, hut he tended it oil', and received a seven cut in one ol his lingers. II* saw Mr. Suydam looking very angry, and a knife fall upou the floor. The blood had gushed from his wounds, and he was soon unable te speak. A frieml requested him to go to an upper room when a physician was seat for and the cuts on his uppct and lowerli|>s suwod up, svith*that[on his hand dressed. He continued to he an iuvalid lor some time, and took no sustenance for a fortnight after he had been struck, except through a small tube. In answer to questions from counsel, lie stated that he had seen Mr. Suydani in August. ltvJO, at the Astor House the witness being in this vicinity for the advantage of en joying the sea air and the cool mvigoruting breezes ol Rockuway, and of being ready for on excursion to th< Springs, where he had also " tripped on the light fantastic toe" with muuy of "Columbia's fairest daughters.' He Hail (never spoken to Mr. Suydum, though he recollects seeing him at the Astor House. His lady was jaunted ..... ..., iiu. 11 was ? melt coup d ail. I never visited her in her bed-loom, neithci did I Bend any love letters to hea?nor did 1 procure an) one to doKO lor mo. Mr.Suvdam had no eauke of jealousy in regard to uie for an) \rordior action on ui) part. I sua his lad) at the time 1 siieuk of, when in) eve was attract ed towurdk her, but I cannot sav that I have seen hei since, or would e\ er know her, were I to meet her again groin the time of seeing Mr. 8. at the Astor House in 1840 I had not beheld him till the period of his attack upon m< at Nibio's more than a )ear afterwards. This, with tomt little variation as to phraseology, was the substance of the Signer's testimony. Mr. lUaivoxT, a friend of Siguor d'Ah ear, testified t< having been present at the time of the assault. Mr. Suy dam struck over the Hignor's right shoulder, and gave ai least two or three blows with the knife, which he then dropped hastily I followed him out of the bar into the street, and asked him what had tuduced him to commit the a-sault. His reply was that Siguot d Ah ear had beer in the bod-room with his wife, and that she had gone out He also said that he had come from South CaruTina with a determination of killing the Signor, but he thanked Got that he hud not done so. I asked him if he felt aggrieved Why he had not challenged signer d'Alvear. lTis reply was, that the Signor, from the situation he occupied, u as not at liberty to accept a challenge, or he would have done so. I told him uiy friend would expect to obtain sa tisl'action lor the attack upon him, w hen he answered thai ho would he most happy to afford him any that he mighl desire. I)r. Caniochau was called to attend Signor d'Al vear after he had been injured, and subsequently Drs.Mott Post, and Watson. Dre. T. and W. testified that the wound, at first, w as vefy severe. It had been struck downwards, and the knife cut through the upper lip,from the nose to the edge and also went through the lower lip, knocking out one oi the teeth and breaking another, and somew hat injuring the. gums. It was a transfixed w ound and required to bt sewed up, but it healed kindly, and left but little mark. This was about the whole of the story, so that the let tars and the beJ room, and the violated sanctity of mar ried life, and all the other things which Madam Rumoi spread upon the four winds at the time ol the occurrence dwindled to a small point. Whether poor guydatn had been "put upon"1 by some lady lolks (absent or present) ot bad "w aked up the w rong passenger,'' it is Impossible tu say- that something of the Kind w as connected with the operation seems evident,as he perfectly knew his man and seemed, "Burning with deep revenge," to resent some serious supposed wrong. Mr. Price stated to the Court, that there was a wituess whose testimony they had hoped to procure lor the present trial, but without cfl'ect. They would bo enabled to get it, and asked that it might be presented to the Court in mitigation of penalty. Judge B?.tt? replied that the request appeared to be a reasonable one. Theodence lor which Mr. Suydam is now tried, is lor committing an assault on an accredited agent from abroad, the penalty for which is imprisonment for a term not exexceeding three years, and fin* at the discretion of the Court. The District Attorney (who was assisted by Mr. F. B. Cutting,) read a certificate from Hon. Daniel Webster, Secretary of State, showing that Signer d'Alvearis Secretary of Legation from the Argentine Republic to the United Status. The case was submitted without summing up by counsel. The Court charged that the duty of the jury was merely to say whether or not the prisjner was guilty of the assault. Thejury found him guilty, and the Court adjourned.

He represented himself in the altidavlt of justification to be a master builder, and that he owned a house and lot in Orand street, also the house 1*1 Mott street, 1,400 acres of laud in Herkimer county, 30 lots in Brooklyn, and various other houses and lots in this city. On this security Allen was allowed to run at large, until u.'ithiii r? f??tv tlava ivtipn Iimtirf- ltnvinar nhtftinid anotkcr charge against him for passing a counterfeit note, he was arrested by A.

In the mean time it had been ascertained that Walter was entirely irresponsible and that he had committed perjury in the atiidavit presented to Judge Inglis iu nearly all its essential points. The bail being fixed in the last arrest on application to Recorder Tallinadge by a writ of habeas corpus, at ?'2,000, Allen in company with one of Col. Jones'deputy keepers, endeavored to obtain the necessary sureties yesterday, and while in search as was supposed, Walt en, who had entered security iu the previous case, appeared in the police ottice and oll'ercd himself again for that purpose, with another atiidavit prepared, giving a list of property in Newark, N. J. and llyde Park, in this tstate. Mr. Callciidar immediately apprised Justice Matsell, who erdercd him to l>e arrested forthwith. Affidavits were immediately obtained from the gentleman who occupies the house in Grand street, sworn to by Walter as his property, that it belonged to the Bayard estate, aud by others, that several houses also named belonged to Dr. Himers, tec. Before searching this barefaced villain, he presented a deed purporting to have been signed by James Eneu, sen., 9!' Philadelphia, conveying a lot of ground. 011 the south side ot James street, 106 feet west of Seventh street, to L. G. Davis, with ?48 ground rent, payable half yearly.

It is presumed that this deed is a forgery. as the signature stands "James Ensu, ' without the addition of the senior,from whom it purports to have been a conveyance. We trust the Philadelphia police will look to this. This fellow Walter is a grate setter by trade, and, no doubt, has long been attached to the gang of counterfeiters of which Otia Allen is the organised leader. Ho was fully committed by Justice Matsell, and will not escape 011 straw bail. Allen is safely jugged, being held 011 an atiidavit made by O.ll.Maxwell, who states that he received 11 ?1 counterfeit bill, 011 the Citizens' Batik of Nantucket, from Allen. which he passed to Thomas F.dsall, ou the Jlst of April.

In :he Senate, this morning, after the passage oi several bills of u private nature, and some reports from standing committees, a bill authorizing the construction of a depot for charts and instruments t f the navy, was read a third time and passed.

The heavy timbered lands on the St. Johns and the Aristook have been almost worthless from the absence of means to send the lumber to market. Wc have the Aristook, to be sure, but it is worth nothing without the St. John. Now we get the free navigation of the latter river and not only that, but our lumber descending the St. Johns goes to English ports free of duty. This will throw open that immense timber country on the St. Johns and the Aristook. and render valuable and available, what lias hitherto been locked up and useless. I Some of the democratic friends of the President here, have expressed surprise that Mr. Noah, the editor of a paper professedly friendly to the administration, should combine with the ultra Clay men in the Corporation of the city of New York, to eject Mr. Wliitjiig, the very able and efficient District Attorney, with a view to substitute an avowed and in vcterute enemy of Mr. Tyler, and one ol the most active of Mr. Clay's supporters. Such a movement ought not to excite any astonishment. It is in perfect keeping with whig tactics in New York. There is neither incongruity nor unfitness in the Judge of an important Court descending from the bench to conduct a paper,nor is it at all strange or improper lor the same judge to render a bold support to the adminUtation inhis paper?a support that is of no avail in any point ot view, and at the same time to co-operate with the most subtle and dangerous enemies of the same administration, in every enterprise or movement which they may suggest. The practice of carrying two faces under one hood Is sanctioned by time honored usage, and nothing can be more unreasonable than to complain of it at this time of dav. If the private interest of a man demands that he should support the President in one quarter, and at the same time strive to imure him in another, is it to be exacted in these degenerate days, that any considerations of principle, or consistency, or selfrespect, should induce him to act fairly or honestly! The idea is preposterous. Mr. Noah's notions of good faith coincide precisely with those of his office holding associates in New York, who profess friendship to President Tyler, and at tne same time ussist in the Clay organization, and throw cold water on every demonstration intended to give the administration honest and substantial support.
