Kxtracts from French Joarnals. Le Commerce, in reference to the New Years' Address of the "Chambers" to the King, ob serves? 'Nothing very significant ought to be expected from the answer of the King to a common address. In this case, we must confess, it isquite otherwise. In the answer delivered to Mons. le due Pasquier, one phrase deserves to be quoted in present cir cumstances. "The Chamber of Peers know to what an extent I appreciate the strong propositions and wise reception given by it to the system which I have constantly followed for the good ol France." Alter such a declaration, what becomes of that fundamental constitutional princfple?the Ministe rial responsibility which guarantees the inviolabili ty of the Royal personl According to the words put in the mouth of the King by the Minister.-', the system now followed, lor fiftees years, wes all his own ; that it was the same to M. Thiers and M Guizot?to M. de Broglie and M. Mole ; that is tantamount to an averment that we live under the personal government of the King. Since this is the case, changes of ministers must be mere farce, and the discussions in the Chambers upon our general policy have not the slightest weight or object. Moreover, should not our legislative as semblies restrict their functions to mutters of ad ministration! We have had a precedent for such a regime in the reign ol his Majesty the Emperor Napoleon."^What once existed may be re-estab lished. More than sixty persons charged with conspira cy, were arrested in Poland in the course of a tew days, and there was every likelihood that the sys tem would continue. It is said positively that Prussia will retaliate on f-Ianover, on account of the treaty between that power and England. A higher rate of duty will probably be put upon Hanoverian ships entering Prussian ports. During the 29:h and 30th December, the sum of 520,215 francs was deposited in the Paris SavinRs Banks, and 884,000 francs withdrawn?the number of depositors amounted to 3,347. Rumors, tending to promote some disquietude, have been rife in financial circles in Paris ? One capitalist has failed in 700,000 francs, aud it is teared that it is only the beginning ot a series of ?imilar disasters arising from imprudent competi tion in stocks with richer men. By a royal order, guano is admitted free into Spanish ports, in vessels of all nations. During the whole course of his life, and in his last moments, the regectde Tschch had but one thought?'elt only one solicitude?the most in tense affection for his daughter Bertha. She is eighteen years of age, very beautiful, and highly educated. For some months she had inspired a young doctor of the University of Berlin with a strong passion, which was about to lead to a union between them, when her father committed the crime which was visited with capital punishment The young doctor, however, persevered in his pro jects ; but Bertha, the day alter the execution, un der the conviction that it would expose him to the ignominy which awaited her, wrote him a letter praying him to bid her a final adieu. Upon re ceiving this last proof of her attachment, the young doctor repaired to her dwelling in one of the sub urbs of Berlin, where he learned that she had set out the night before for Silesia, with the intention of spending the remainder of her lite in prayer and meditation with one of her aunts Professor Faraday has been elected associate member of the French Institute, in place of Mr. Dalton, the famous author of the atomic theory. The celebrated names of Brewster, Jacobi, Lie big, Buckland, and Mellont, were among the can didates. George Cuthbert was found by a policeman in a state of helpless intoxication in the public streets Being questioned as to his name and residence, he said?"I am a victim of science?but I have at last found it." " Found what 1" replied the police men. "Silenee, 1 am going to tell you?don't you know?and if you don't, you must be informed? that for years I have been engaged in investigating the comparative strength of alcoholic liquids, and I have just a few moments ago determined it in favor ot whiskey.

[From Le Commerce.] Texas?the United States and England.? The Comtitutionnel affirms that the English go vernment is employing every effort to prevent the annexation of Texas to the United States. In this fact we concur. The same journal avers, that the English cabinet have, in order to prevent this dreaded event, procured instructions to be sent from Paris to our Minister at Washington, to op pose the veto of France to the annexation of Texas We do not doubt that in Washington, as else where our diplomacy is made to subserve that ol England. It will not fail to second the efforts ot England to awaken the independence party in Texas, and strengthen at Washington the party op nosed to annexation. It will tend to apprise Mr. Tyler and his cabinet of the displeasure such an act would cause to France. But in these proceed ings there is a long distance between an absolute veto and threats of an armed intervention. Mr truizot has so effectually cleared this distance, that ue has pushed complaisance towards England to absurdity. Threats of this|sort may well, indeed, provoke the just scorn of politicians in the Unitea States. They know France well enough to be aware that there are combinations which in this country are rendered impossible by public opinion. A union of our forces with those of England, to burn the ports and ravage the coasts of America, is certain of this kind. Admitting that our naval forces were obliged, by the laws of discipline, to obey orders of this nature, can it be supposed that the French Chambers would tolerate such a violation of all the rules of sound politics, and that public opinion would not put an obstacle thereto, by some irresis tible demonstration 1 Mr. Guizot then would have offered an empty menace to the United States ridi culous in their sight, and most culpable in regard to France. Was it not enough to pursue a course on
the Texas question opposed to our permanent in terests, and to resent, in any shape whatsoever, a measure which, in augmenting the power of the great American Republic, is perfectly consistent with our true policy 1 It was neither through a blind hatred of Great Britain, nor through a sentiment of generosity to wards an oppressed people, that France contributed to the freedom of the English colonies. She had the instinctive apprehension that it was for her own interests to secure an ally on the opposite coast of the Atlantic, which sooner or later would contri bute to redeem the ocean, and overthrow the sup remacy which England arrogates on that element. In order to remain faithf ul to our previous policy? in order that it may render the fruits expected from it?it is necessary that the United States should fulfil their destiny?that they should spread on the sea-board of the Atlantic, and that beside them there should not lormlany petty States as vassals of England. Since Mexico has been unable to retain Texas, it should, then, become an antegral portion the great American confederation This event, again, will be brought about by the Force of circumstances The whig party in the United States are no more opposed to it as former ly. Its promineut leaders during the last election modified their language on that question. There isa probability that the Senate will no longer reject the treaty of annexation, when presented to it by the new President, above all if it be accompanied by an act of session on the part of Mexico. Now it is nearly certain that Mexico herself, will no longer persist in an opposition henceforth use less. It is impossible for that country fo carry out her pretensions to Texas by force of arms. After the sad issue of the first expedition, she is incapa ble from making a new attempt, for which every requisite is wanting. Santa Anna, if he preserves his power, will not dare to waBte all his resources in such an enterprise, much less would he assume the burthen of it himself.tfStill occupied with solici tude to replenish his treasury, it appears that he has already renounced his warlike braggadocia, and d at the present moment listening to propositions ot pecuniary indemnity from the United Stales. Al though the career of Santa Anna should terminate, nil tirs as regards this question would not change iheir aspect. Politicians in Mexico have. becom> iwarei that it would be preferable lor their country s United T that Texas should be annexed|to the United States, by a treaty defining the limits between the two re publics, than to see that ancient province existing as a hostile independent Slate, with uncertain limits, and possessed oi the power to spread indefinitely In any case, then," we may expect a negociatmri which will remove the obstacles which the ques tion h is hitherto presented. Experience has taught us that the United States is not easily intimidated by the threats of strangers, and her national policy treats veiy lightly the prefer ences ot England. They know well, beeides, the raaaons which prevent their anoient metropolis from appealing to arms against them. They will preserve, therefore, on this occasion the route in dicated to them by the nature of things. The an exation of Texas will take place in spite of the veto of England, although it should be sustained by an analogous demonstration from the French Minister. The latter will succeed only to give in this instance a new proof of obsequiousness to this intimate ally, who responds to so much devotion by the brutal exercise of the right of visit, and by de mands lees and less amicable. Pittsburgh. f Correspondence of the New York Herald.] Pittsburgh, Feb. 4. 1845. Grand Ball at Monongahcla Home?Beauty, Ele gance, Fashion and Taste?A full, true, and par ticular account. Dkar Bknnktt !? Hie great act ef the season, in fashionable life, oame of! in this city, in the shape of a Ball or Party, given by the Bachelors at the Monongahe la House on Thursday evening last. Mine host, Mr. Crossan, having received a carte blanche, with two weeks notice, tofmake ready, sustained his well earned reputation beyond the hopes of the most sanguine, by a style of arrangements and de coration, which would not have done discredit to any of the most recherchi saloons of the French capital, while his able and gentlemanly assistant, Mr. Alden, appeared to have exhausted the rich stores of his gastronimic treasury, in launching forth upon the groaning tables of the ladies' ordinary, a spectacle of luxury, which for brilliancy of display and refinement of taste at once baffled all descrip tion, and reminded the admiring beholder of ,sThe Royal feast, for Persia won, By Philip's Godlike Son." Great were the preparations for the event during the week preceding. Milliners, mantua-makers, and dry goods men reaped a rich harvest from the reckless expenditure of contending belles and beaux, and every greenhouse, public and private, was stripped ot its fl >ral treasures to supply the immense demand lor bouquets. Apropos?ol green-houses, I must not omit to mention, tnat cer tain army and navy officers, who are stationed here, suspecting foul play in the matter of bou quets, have determined to establish a greenhouse of their own. An lilnatured friend at our elbow, suggests that they will have abundant material for the purpose?Capital idea, however, that of the greenhouse, and highly characteristic of a genuine esprit du corps. Being a little beyond the noon of life, we did not hurry, but found ourself at o'clock at the en trance to the ball room, where we paused in ad miring wonder, to contemplate for a moment, tht magnificent and gorgeous spectacle before us. Already two hundred and fifty of the votaries of Terpsichore were dancing to the music of the fine band from the United States arsenal, and truly it may be said, that pleasure, not "Madness, ruled the haur." Each face was beaming with delight, and the wrinkles of care, for the nonce, were banished from brows, that had been marked in many a rude encounter with the world?while the boy-god, from his well filled quiver, scattered his shafts with lavisti profusion, and "Shock thousand oders from his dewy wings." To say that the ladies surpassed all previous ef forts, in the elegance of their attire, would be but faint praise. The coup d'aeil was grand and im posing to the last degree, realizing to our observa tion, more than our imagination had ever con ceived. Proceeding up the room, we had an opportunity to remark n.ore particularly the individual attrac tions, which contributed to make up the vast sum of loveliness assembled on the occasion. First, because towering above the rest in sta ture, we noticed the queenly Miss McN, late ol St. Louis, moving graceful as a swan, while her dark eyes flashed with tearful efTect upon sundry beaux. Alas! poor Mr. J.! Look to thy rivals now In the next cotillon were Miss Z., of Nor folk, Va., arid Miss V. C., looking like twin sisters in loveliness, similarly attired in blue and silver, resembling each other, yet still unlike?the former a sweet exotic from the sunny South?the latter, a charming specimen ot our more Northern clime. The first ot these ladies, to our keen perception, seemed to listen with interest to the soft nonsense of the attentive Mr. McK , although per contra, it is said, she is 1 The lass that loves a sailor " Near these stood the sweet and pleasing Miss A G.f all unconscious of her own attractions, while gazing with evident pleasure at thuse of her capti vating sister, just named. In the same set we ob served Miss R. of Cincinnati, in whose line, intel lectual face we thought we could detect the traces ot some "secret sorrow," which not even the as siduous attention of Mr. C. could dissipate. A little further on, we perceived the beautiful and sprightly Miss D , one in whom we have al ways lelt a melaucholy interest, in consequence ol the tragical end of her father, the late Colonel D , ?<up*rintendent of the public works at H F., and with whom it was our good fortune to be acquain ted in early life. Near her, remarkable for her gaiety and animation, stood Miss C. D., a lady " somewhat near the throne," being a neice ol the Vice-President elect. Her couein, Miss W., daughter of the present Secretary at War, came next, just blooming into womanhood, and looking exceedingly well. Miss S , the daughter of one ol our iron millionaires, a sweet engaging; little sylph, stood listening, with evident gratification, to tire blandishments ot Mr. M , whose suit it is thought will shortly terminate in matrimony. Con spicuous amongst the rest, we noticed Miss K , Miss G., and Miss O., all very beautiful girls, and dressed with excellent taste. Also Miss C., of Al leghany, a favorite ot ours, looking exceedingly well, tire beautiful symmetry of whose neck and shoulders, and finely rounded arm, are seldom equalled, and never excelled. We might continue thus to particularise, but are admonished that this communication is already sufficiently extended Many, very many, we are therefore compelled to overlook, of whom it might truly be said, " grace was in all their steps." Our married ladies, many of whom were present, contributed not a little to the loveliness of the scene?one I must mention, particularly, as she is yet a bride, Mrs. B., late Miss R., ot Philadelphia, as no less distinguished for the beauty of her person, than for her aweet and engaging manners. We could not but think, " Had Heaven but given us such a wife, and this world were one entire rash chrysolite, we'd not exchange her tor it " Of the gentlemen, it is needless to speak?each exerted himself to the ut most to do the agreeable, as though the whole suc cess of the affair depended upon his individual ex ertions. We must not. ho vever, omit to notice an artist of no mean celebrity, Mr D., who, for once exchanging the usual cynical expression ol his face, lor a countenance wreathed in smiles, acknowledged that here, indeed, he had at last found the true line of beauty We heard bitter complaints of one practice, which we are bound to say we think " would be morc honored in the breach than the observance," viz : that of certain " peuciliogs bv the way," in which our belles indulge, on small cards, brought for the purpose, whereon to record their several engagements. No lady should engage hersell for more than two or three sets in advance An arch little friend, with whom we discussed this matter, mischievously insinuated the suspicion, that the books, in some instances, were not lairly kept, the credits being far too numerous; while in others it looked as though the fair scribe was determined to secure every offer, to prevent the possibility of finding hersell disengaged. Every thing, however, passed ofl to the satis faction of all concerned The rich viands and delicacies of the snpper table were well and ably discu-sed. Coftee was served up about half past three o'clock, AM, and at this signal the com pany began gradunlly to disperse, llalf an hout from this time our services were required in the cloak and hood department, when, utter posses sing ouraelf of our fair charge, we succeeded in navigating our way, through a double row of vo ciferous drivers, to our own carriage, and a short and pleasant ride terminated, so far as we were concerned, the evening's entertainment. Return iug, us the last of the company were retiring, we found "the banquet hall desetted,"and a solitary loiterer here and there in the ball room, gave 10 it, if possible, a more melaucnoly appearance Moodily we stolfe ofl to our attic, yet resolving within ourselt not to be absent Irons the next bachelor's party. Sxnkx.

A good deacon, making an official visit to a dying neigh bor, who was a very churlish and universally unpopular man. put the usual question .?"Are you willing to go, my friend 7" "O, yes," said the sick man, "I am."?

Vexattous Incident of the !?torm ?We hare heard of a curious case of a disappointment, in con nexion with the recent extraordinary delay of the pas senger lines and mails fiom New Yoik. It seems that n gentleman residing in a neighboring village, had entered mt?a matrimonial engagement with a fair daughter of a worthy citir.en in his immediate vicinity and the parties bad determined that the wedding should take place on Thursday evening last at 8 o'clock. It so happened that business called the intended groom to Now Yoik on Man day, and he hastened on, with the expectation of being back on Tuesday night, or at the latest on Wednesday morning Under the circumstances, he gave instructions to hia relatives and friends to secure the services of a clergy man, and to make dne preparations for the bridal. The storm and the delay lor the first day, created some un easiness ; but the fair lady and her friends believed that eva-y thing would be right by Thursday evening, and the lover would be in attendance at the appointed hour. Ac cordingly, the cake and the wine were provided, the bridesmaids were present, the clergyman made his ap pearance at the appointed hour, and the plighted one ard her friends were on the tiptoe of expectation. Within a brief period of the designated hour, and be coming somewhat apprehensive, a postponement was talked of But as the wedding WM to be a dashing one, og many invitations had been sent out, end as fiieDdt from the surrounding country were pouring in, in sleighs, a postponement seemed very awkward, especially as the majority hopt 1 that every new comer would bring some tiding of the absent bridegroom. Thus, the time glided on, until the predetermined wedding hour had passed by -until ' hope deferred made the heart sick ''?and it was deempd necessary to break up the party and postpone the marriage. The balle of the village, (or such the intended bride haa long been regarded, although ev dently somewhat an noyed at the circumstances, put the best face upon the affair,exvrind herself to the utmost to render the company joyous and happy-and remsrkel, aptly enough-that it >vas nat tl.e first time the old adage of "many a slip bet ween the rup and the lip', had been forcibly illustrated. Th8 feelings of the lover, who was, in all probability, boxed up in a rail-road car, and sunounJed ty hills of snow, at a moment too, when he had expectrd to become ? he hoppiest man in the world, may be imagined only by bose, whosu sensibilities are keen, and whoac imaging. t one are glowing ?Philadelphia Ini/uirer. Bloody Assault.?On ihe evening of Mardi Grat a difficulty occurred between II. K. Hatch, of this city, and u gentlemen from New York, by the name ol Jackson. A misunderstanding arosp in the 8t Louis Ball Room. Shortly afterwards the parties met out of doors, when words entiled, which were followed by blows. Mr. natch, some ten or fifteen minutes after wards, procured a knife, and nssnulled Mr. Jackson in the ante.room, giving him a dangerous stab in the breast and several others in the body. Mr. Jackson was reported to have died last night Ad affray oi this sort at a public ball, at one of the first hotels in the city, is well calcula ted to produce great inquiry and rx:itemcnt. It is a meat -hocking affair ; but as the matter will undergo judicial investigation, and we could not arrive at positive inlorma tion as lo the beginning of the controversy ar the exact uature of the provocation that produced the stabbing, it would be out ot place to volunteer an opinion respecting it, lurther than to remark, that a scene ol bloodshed apon mi occasion of the kind, almost in the presence of ladies assembled to pars a holiday in festivity and joy, must ex. cite in the punlia mind feelings ukin to horror.?N.O.
