Pari;!, January 11, 18t8. i Influence iti Europe of the Capture of Mexico? Retention of the President's Message,fyc-?Ctontrait with the King's Spiech?Debate in the Chamber of Deputies, fyc. The capture of Mexico, and the dispatches of General Scott and other officers of the army, . have produced a profound impression upon the courts of England and France, and the intelligent portion of the European population ; and the triumphs of our arms have created a great change in the opinions of both governments and people, of the capacity and power of our country in war, and a corresponding respect for our rights is a necessary consequence ; for. with t'ie five great European powers, their patt history shows that the stronger a government may be, the more they rns,>ect it's rights and listen to its demands. In England, it Ins done more ; for it has created a serious apprehension for the ultimate safety of Iter possessions on the North American conti- 1 nent, aid satisfi-d her statesmen that in future, ' in any \r,ir with America, the will meet the ?nme spirit which has enabled American arms to accomplish such daring deeds in the war with Mexico. Ail Europe now better understands ! that ihe United States are able to meet England 1 in the arts of war, as well as of peace; and that 1 on ihe western continent, speaking the English language. a people exist who are destined Soon to excca in numbers and power, in wealth and national resources, any one ol the great European powers. Tho report of the Secretary of the Treasury contrasts the influx of wealth and immediate resource* of our country, with the twelve millions ol' dollars diminution in the last year's income of the English government, and the critical con; dition of the financial affairs ol that country g?nerally; and in the prospective, the contrast is still greater, in favor of the United States. The United States, it is beginning here to be understood, can compete with any European country in any of the important branches of national industry, and that her ships engiged in the carrying trade, are the finest in the world. The French admit this frankly ; and upon this point the English have ccasedto claim the superiority, except in numbers. In any of the French ports which I have visited, I have been proud to find the largest and most beautiful ships in thn harbor, American; and all the French with wh?m I have conversed, say that our ships are very much superior to those of England?at least, those that visit France. France is comparatively an inland nation, and has neither the means nor the expectation of competing with either the United States or England, in the carrying trade; and, generally, the French people see, with great satisfaction, a nation rising up in the west, to overshadow England in all those respects in which England claims universal su porionty; ana, msreiore, me extension 01 uui I! dominion* over Mexico: the additioa of a couaI ( try halt as large aa all Europe; the acquisition It ot mines now the richest in tho world, perhaps; ! tue inarsasc of our population eight or ten milIt liov and ths ultimate conversion of a semiII barb*/ us people and country into elements of II powsr and civilization, create no disquietude in II their minds; and they are rather pleased than Ig annoyed in contemplating the rapid advaoceIr m?nt of a country which has ever been the B friend of France. B The President's message, General Scott's dis patches, the reports of the several Secretaries, B Ac..arrived at Paris nearly at the name time; and B some of the loading journals of Paris, not under ths control of the ministry, said, alter reading H these documents, and contrasting the scene* and H country which they unfolded with the King's H speech, it seemed, in passing from the latter to the former, " like making a journny from Lilliput to the land of Giants." 1 quote the seatiH meat precisely, and the language in substance. Look at the admission; and any one in France, who understands both countries, can appreciate I the force of tho remark. The journalist took into HI view the present and future capacities of HI the two countries. Out the Mexican war H and the libels of the English pres.", have fixed H| <hr attention of Europe upon the United States, and created an interest t j watch the progress of events in the Western world?and when they find a power which England has represented throughout Europe, as no mean competitor for tho United States in any trial of strength; as intired to the arts of war and roused to the highest pitch of national enthusiasm, annihilated ; and nor armies routed and flying from one fourth of ^B their numbers, in a series ot pitched battles, of which the world furnishes few similar examples, without one reverse ; and her ports closed, ana her targe towns and the capital in the possession of ths United States, this state of things arrests H public attsntion among the intelligent portion of tho people of Europe, and they look for, and H read with interest, ttie views and explanations which osch nation may present to the civilized world, of events so extraordinary. H The pitf>lic documents, therefore, emanating ^B from tho United Stntes, have been read with universal interest?and they have created a pro^B found impression upon the public mind in Eu^B r?pe, favorabls to our country ; notwithstanding the unremitted efforts of the English press to ^B misrepresent us, aided, I regret to add, by the peas tof some Americans heated with political ^B warfare, and, perhaps, without thinking of the use which wilflhe made, by our enemies abroad, of what was Said only for effect at home. Let all who take part against our country in war, reH tnenibsr that they have England and Englishmen ^H lor ^B P.

Turin, Jan. 7, 1813. Tht Italian Revolution, and the Pope?Highly InH tereeting Intelligence? Progrtnt of the Peaceful I Italy is passing through the deepest and most all P'. rvhding revolution she has seen since the middle *g?s?a revolution which has penetrated tbe entire body of society, throughout the peninsula, aud sseins likely, unless it be arrested by auars beyond the foresight of man, to change the institutions of ths continent of Europe. I Mid you, la advanoa of all your contemporaries flIrs of '.de new journals established In Italy sinos the virtual proclamation of the freedom of the pre's In sevsral of the States of that long oppressed and Insulted country. Theaeoession of Pin* IX. to tha throne of St. Peter, was ths signal of tha triumph of liberal principal In Italy; an event which no philosopher or statesman ean pretend to have foreeeen. and whleh was wholly unexpected by the Italian! themselves. I have sire* Oj seat to you, from time to time, Infoimatton of the progreec or the spirit of liberty, under the peaceful md auspicious reign of the new Pontiff. The political state of Italy will hereafter occupy a large space in my letters to the HtralH. and I am resolved to leave no phase of humanity untouched Without being able at present to review the onuses whioh have led to this wonderful revolution .In the political, the srcial. and the religious condition of Italy, I liail briefly lay before your readers the information wfckh 1 have obtained by means of the new Italian journals just established. Tnere are but two parties in Ita ly?tha Austrian and the Italian; tha one the friends and advocates of the system that has hitherto prevailed i lu the Italian eabinets, that has robbed Italy of its nationality aad Independence, that has rifled from her the last vestige or liberty that had descended to that fair I land from the heroio republicans of the middle ages a party that has opposed, with demoniac vlrulenco, the introduction of railways, and manufactories, and fte* I trade,of freedom of the press, of liberal ideas, and of I popular education?a party that has aided and abetted I Aietrernioh in perfecting his perfidious scheme of rednI ning m11 Italy under the Austrian yaks. This is theparI ty that, opposed Pins IX in every reform he uudejtook I fir the beas&t of his pf-ople and tor the emancipation of I h*s o >utitry, that conspired against the Ufa of ihe PcnI tiff fast July and which weuld, if the plot bad not I beeu illscuvertd, have dragged that venerable and great I roan from his throne, and wet the streets of Rome with his Mood ThS other party Is made up rf the great boI dy of Italians, Every fi-leod of popular liberty of Jus the, of reform, of progress, and of .latlooal ladepen d?nce?avery advocate or constitutional government and liberty- every genuine friend of religion or of the Catholic church?every lover of peace and of virtue and th?y constitute two thirds, it not three fourths of the' ectite population of Italy, lintil t[) e elevation of riusIX ?v?ry rrmce la Italy was ruled by the Austrian Cabinet. B El NE NEW The King of Naples, who reigned over the l(.r:est and Mrest part of the penin?nla, w?s an Austrian Bourbon; and probably the long records of that bigoted and bloody race do not show bis equal la besotted despotism. His court swariaed with Jrsults, nnd his kingdom with priests. m< nk? beggar*, aoldl?re and splfs Tue penalty for sptatlng or printing a sentiment of liberty, was death without beneflt vf cleriry.

Charlta Mbert, the present King of Sardinia (whloh embraces by tbe arbitrary and despotic will of the Congress of Vienna, Piedmont, SS'ivov, the island of ba'JI nla. and tbr old republic of Oonon, with a population of nearly 4,000 900) v.-a a at the head of a revolution in Italy in 1821, before he had any expectation of arriving at the throne. On the miscirriuge of the revolution, bH turned a traitor to the oause of liberty, and delivered up several thousands of his accomplices to die an ignominious death, or beg their bread in exile. This was the title which Austria considered guflloierit to give him the throne of Savoy. His reign ba? been hardly less bloody and bigoted than that of his royal cousin or Naples. Up to the moment of the elevation of l'ius IX , he fon^'a t against reforms with the same obstinaoy ? His State wan filled with men of genius and statesmen ol Uwe, and yet the press was in ohains. He bad married hia eldest son to ail Archduchess of Austria, and was in the straitest alliance with that power. The (Jrand Duke of Tuso&ny, the next most considerable 1'rince in Italy, was a better man and a more eullghteacd statesman, btu ha was powerless to do good, except in a small way. His sway was m'ld and paternal, but Italy was nun? th'j belter for U. The Duko of Maduna was a tiger ; be died a year ago, and bis son, who succeeded him, has shown that he is a tiger's whelp?bloody, ferocious, bi.-oted. <-rant. and cruel The Duke ot Lucca *11 aaotBwr edition in 3i iuj. of hia Uo4eu cousin ? The Grand Duchess oi i'arrua, (ttie widon of Napoleon.) ruled a small, but beautiful territory, by (rant of tho Congress of Vienna, as a kindot small potato dominion? an offset for the imperial orown of Krance. She was a gay, Imperious, witty little body, nod never out off heads, except for a jcke. She had other accomplishments, mere generally appreciated, and is said to have had more lovers than any woman in Italy, if Napoleon had bein living, this would not have been so gro^s an outrage upon the morals of that class of people. But being a widow, we believe that even European etiquette was considered to be somewhat offended by ifcu well known latitude of Maria Louisa. There were two oth-r States in Italy?the littlo republic of San Marino, which has about 7,000 people, perobed upon a rock like an eagle's nest; and the principality of .VIonaoo, about as large as a good slied cotton Held, and with about as many subjects as a respeotable southern planter. Dut from all accounts, its p:ince knew considerably less about government than uny American planter I happen ever to have heard of He had twenty soldiers, fifty spies and somewhere about a hundred subjects. Such were the States, and such the princes, of Italy, a year ago last June, when Pius IX. cacne to the throne. S > badly governed a country there never his boen. and there never will be, any where this side of Dante's internal rtglons?and probably there never was, and there never will be, a oountry that gave the devil so little trou ble ; for sinoe the death of Machiavelll, his Satanic Majesty's interests bav-t b?en so well taken care of in that part of the world, by the Metternicbs and the Popes that he has attempted to introduce none of his modern improvements among the descendants of Tarquin and Nero. The moment Pius IX. took the sceptre, he began to harl this whole system of norrap'ion, bigotry, despotism and satanism to the cround. and for oiabteen months he baa been making th? dry bon?s o' the ciiarnel house of Italy quake. Austria, tuo Jeauita tn m ime, nod tue Auatrlau party, early leagued agninat him Tney attempted to frighten him out of his reforms; but be waa not a man to bu frightened. They attempted to take hia life, and tailed Tbey tried to introduce dissensions among hia oounaellora, and aueoeeded; but the Pope appointed new onea, and went boldly on. Ho haaoonquc?fcd all obstacles, and baa won orer to hia aide Bcveral ot the princea of the Peninsula Charles Albert for a long time hesitated, and at laat joined the Pope, with his nary and an army of a.i hundred thousand mea He has reformed hia government in every department?he haa dismissed the Jesuits from hia oounclla. and stems likely to be compelled to dismiss them from hia Sta e. He attempted to please the peoplo, Austria, and the Pope, at the same time, and fonnd it impossible. It ia hi* custom (indeed the Congreaa or Vienna imposed it upon him) to pass one month in the year in Genoa. He always enters the city the 4th of November a ad leavee it iu just thirty daya. dome ten days before hu left Turin the last time for this visit, he Bent oae of his apies on before him to asoertaln the kind of reception he waa likely to meet with. Afar sojourning a week among the G?noese, h? returned and told hia master, "if your majtaty is going to Gen**, yon most publish your reform* before you tart, or aend on your oannon ahead " Hi chose tbe former, or he would moat likely have found bis palace surrounded by 60,000 revolutionists the tirat nfgbt. Aa it was, his entry of that splendid old city was one of the most brilliant and enthusiastio triumphs a modern prinoe can boast of. This display from the Genoese would never barn be oh made to Charles Albert, uolt>s< he bad espoused, with ail the appearance of honesty and earnMtnesa, th-> cause of tho ptople During the month of hia visit, the city wise an uninterrupted aoane of festivity. Processions, with flags of liberty, that ha?t not been aeru in Genoa since the time of Napoleon?publio meetings, where snmimenti of liberty and independence were Imely proclaimed ? dinners between the nobility and the lower cla??-s - balls, saireea, And optional celebrations, with liberty of press, and liberty of speech, were some of the tokeus of the universal enthusiasm. Up to tho day i writs, the entire population of Genoa has been in a r.ut.? or the deepest excitement. Not lest than 2#,000 lUfliu aisembUd in the great platzi before the theatre, determined to deatroy the convent cl the Jeauita lirnoa baa been tho head quarters form in j years ef this odious sooiety, and the popu%r feeling in that city had been exasperated to the last point against them. The friends of liberty and of order, psrceiviui; that violence waa likely to taxo place, calmed the popular feeling by proposing to delay the destruction of the convent until recourse nad been had to tbe king Accordingly, a large number of tables were brought into the plana, and in ieaa than three hours 10.000 names were signed to a petition for tho establishment of a national gutcd, (which will put 100,000 or 2<'0,U00 mushe s into tbe hands of the people,) and the expulsion ot the Jeauita. This petition, like othera already presented to the king, ho will be compelled to respeot. in tola matter, the great body of the people are united?nohles of the highest rank, thousands of priests and monks who abhor the Jesuits aamuoh as others, with multitudes of the oiiicers of the king's government, and tne great mass ol the population generally, have signed this memorial: Probably not muoh less than 100,000 nam** will have been appended to this appeal, from the single city ol Genos. These will be tbe greatest reforms the king has yet granted, and will settle the qursiioa of the triumph of liberal principles in Sardinia. Milan, which is the capital of Lombardy, wheyo the Viceroy cf Austria resides, ia in a state of revolution. Society has there been in a state of foment for sever*! mouths, but hitherto every popular attempt has been suppressed for tbe mom?mt. VeU.rnich, however, had reserved two of bla most potent remedies for Miianeae democracy, tiil tbe laat moment. A good segar, hitherto, oould not be got in Milan, except frora a smuggler, who asked enough for it to cover the risk of hia head. The Ssala, as everybody knowa, ia theflrst theatre in the world; but aa theatrical amusements were on thedeollne in that city, in ootiaequeuce of the immense political excitement, tho manager of that great theatre did not feel justified in going to the ex pensa of engaging any of the famous artiitci for the oarnlval of 1H48. But Mctt?rnich came to hia aid, and aent hiui Gaizsnega, the famous toprant and Fanny tha divine (an 1 not the theologian) with a very largs aapply of superb Havana aegars Th?se were his dernier resort, when bullets and bayonets sesmeJ tc have lost their virtna The wily old fox counted upon a prodigious effect from these new diplomatic forces ? Accordingly, the G?tt<nega appeared on the boards ol the Soala, and the divine t?l*elcr, with all her undiminished charms, appeared in the balUt.

Buena Vista, Vera Graa, ban Juan de Ulua, Cerro (Jorlo, Contreraa, Churubusco, and aoveral places with utmost unspellable names, are doubtless by this time lisped by infant I'olkicta, in conjunction with the triumphs of new born independeace. But the capital sunlc in thn pnrchasa of that ethcrlal commodity is still more immense. In fact, it ia all lost, with nothing but mure loss in thu prospeot. Military toys are Tory heart rending affairs. Go to the ' Noah's Ark," or the 41 Rocking Horse," and you will find that a miniature army in good training and condition, with fvery arm of thu service complete, oosts not less than ten shillings. After a month's marching and lighting on the table or the floor, the once imposing foroe will be wofnliy shattered. I ufantry will have fallen, cavalry will be prostrate, cannons dismounted, wagons out of gear, and a rlthrit of arms, legs, caps, wheels, guns, and trumpets at th* bottom of tho box will bear melancholy witness to the casualties of even a bloodless campaign. Of your ten a'nlilings there is not muoh to show. Tne beautiful new toy called the ' Mexican invasion," sold at Polk's store, and constituting a sequel to the ' Noble (Jaine of Texas," brought out at Tvlor's emporium, shows by this time about as much for the dollars it has cost. Scott, Thylor, Worth, and a few other flue lellows, are written on the page ot American fame, and iom? ten or a dcz- n millions of British pounds sterling are aided to the eum of American debt It is only rbe other day that the politicians and moralists of the United States hulled the i><vir approach ot a millennium which we unfortunates on this side of the Atlantic are oompeiled to aajigu to the subliinest futurity. In one er two in re years the Union, it was contl lently a-aerteu, would not owe a doll?r in fact, the pubilo deot. due Maroh 4, 1845, was only 17,788791) dollars?not four millions of our money. There are people, however, to whom it ia poaititivcly dangeroua to have money in hand They require the discipline r f debt. Our American couslos bear too strong a family reaom.laaoe to our own humble eelvea to do without aome such control. Anyhow, in Maroh, 1845, they ahowed themselves purse-proud and pugnaoloua. The result la, that sinoe that day toey have added to their debt $37,870,859, and, even, with an immediate increase of taxation, will require a further loan of $17,000 000 fur the next half year. By the en I of next June, therefore, the additional debt entailed by the war will be about $45 000.000; more than ? lo,000 ObO of ourmouoy. The cost of the war, however, lias been a mush greater figure. But for Mexico there would have been an aontml surplus of some million dollars. The mere produoe of the sale of publio lands for the cur rent year, amounts to $3 500 OijO. Perhaps, therefore, we ought to put down to tbe expenses of tlie war up to next June, every dollar of the thenexlstlog debt, which will b* near $63,000 000. This money, belt observed, th Union is borrowing at 6 por cent; nor is there munh likelihood of their soon borrowirg at more ooinfortabLe terms This is a good price for glory, especially of that sort which la won off the miserable Mexicans. Meanwhile, two interesting queatioua occupy the American publio. First, how ia the war to be carried on? Secondly, how Is it to be paid for? With regard to the first, wo forbear to inflect on our readers various ingentoua plan* tor carrying on "a little war," or half a war; for Ivjivinrr n lino /I , t, . tho ln...Un lib. or, a 1f our railways, at a certain point. Whatever mey have occurred to the imagination of Mr. Clay, or Mr Calhuun, there ar>>, in foot, only tiro alternative! in the matter Tile one is to oonquer Mexioo, he l^jt, w?il ultiaivly ann x it?it tse Americans can Ti??b-r ia to paok up, bag and baggage, and boat a retrea# New, we tatertain no doubt tha', the whole male population of | ihe States would rataer take hippho'a leap down the falla of Niagara, then consent to the latter. 60 the former, viz: ?the annexation of Mexioo.ata great sacrifice of life, and a most enormous expenditure of dollars, is the only probable, the only possible result. Mr. Polk, him| self, hedges off every other conceivable alternative, ills weosage exhibits all the rigor of a mathematical *rgu[ uiont On tbri axioms, deniiitlon*. .ma pustulatM 01 AtteriOM morality aud ainbr.iou, and on the a hull ted circumstances of the case, annexation !s a necessary conclusion, or rather is Involved ia the premises Mexico must aompensatc. uot only 1 or the original damages laid to her cbarge, but also fjr the whole oost of the wur. She cannot pay In money, but she can pay in land. Meanwhile, she is incapable of making any treaty at nil, lor the .>au( of a government 1 he conqu-st, therefore, must proceed till it is total and compute, aud by that time iti'cost will far exoeed the value of the whole Mexican territory. The other question it on* of more inttrest, because it admits of mora thauone answer How : Is the war to be paid for? i'hi President is taxing an honest and manly eour'*> In at once advising Congress to raise $3,000 0C0 by a very trilling duty on tea and o"ff-e. There li a certain historical prejudice against suoh a duty, which may possibly excite same opposition. The experience of the last year, however, la proof positive agalast the other alternative, vii:-a repeal of the , new tariff, and a renewal of the p oteotive scale of duties upon imports. Tue inoreaje ot revenue under the [ new system ot revenue duties, has beeu beyond all expectation, and the Union now llads that it cannot rel cede la the career of free trade without serious loss to the exohequer. Brother Jonathan, therefore, will probably submit to pay for tht sweets of glory with a trilling per oentage on bis coffee and tea. A gra, duated scale of ptioea to be tlxed upon certain public lauds, which for thirty years, more or less. , have bsen a drug In the market, is to raise another odd million of dollar!. These two expedients, however, are by no means enough in a nation whose prinolple it Is to oontraot no permanent debt, but whose practloe it Is to annex all Its neighbors, one after another, And assert a paramount claim to a continent. So something else must be done. Tills great difficulty as to the sinews of wur is solved by recurrence to the ordinary praotlco of invaders. Mexico Is, for the fature, to pay for its own conquest. Not only Is an account to be run up. but ready money, or ready something, is to be exacted forthwith. The American Executive has frequently urged upon its Generals the duty of exacting trom the Mexican popula, tlon some deoent equivalent for the favors conferred by their respectable visiters. Of course, it has somewhat provoked the Amertoans to sen that the Invasion hss been in some respects a positive gain to tha Mexicans, who have had an array of wealthy customers at their own doors, and at tneir own termi Tue generals, however, have replied, with evideut regret, that they found themselves under the painlul necessity of paying or starving. ?A hist of oontlaoatiou cr plunder vrould have laid waste tha country even before the lovadera could do that for themselves. This was the d Bloultj so long as the army was on the march. It is now in poisesslon of some very wealthy cities. In fMt, it pN> scs'er the k"ys cf the populous districts. So the screw is to bo applied The President looks askance at the decorations of the churches. He would b? sorry to l?y hl? band* upon tbem; but this sentiment roth** cut so frequently, that It evidently la maintained at the flscrlflce of some rather prtulng considerations; so we cannot help fearing that the superstitious Indians will some lay he taught a simpler religion, and one more convenient to the American exchequer For the rest, we fotb'ar :e speculate; b it wbeu churches are ransacked, will houaea be aacred ' Wbnu saints are despoiled, viU oltlitsa be spared ?

[Prom the London Spectator J However opposed to each o>her In the obvious characteristics of length acd style, the two cfllalal addresses whtoh come to us this week from the S.iuth andth? West? Louis Philippe's speech to hia Chambers, and Jamea K Polk's message to Congress-havs one trait In o.irum'<n, that they are both conceivod id a fpiiit ol courting popularity. A besetting weakness of the Anglo-American rase is an arrogant pride, which prompts the citi j?ns to look down upon every other nation, even In matters where they themselves are inferior, and deem It a favor If they con desoend to oonquer. Of late years this spirit has asrum-d the military form.whioti Is Its most appropriate and imposing avatar; and under that inspiration the republicans are breaking through the injunction! of their ?reat fathers, the Washington! and J?fI?rso,ia, not t? meddle In foreign affairs, uor bibettvye i In'.o the delwslve dangers of conquest. Mr Jamre K Polk, haviag had greatness thrust upon him. is naturally ambitious both of deserving and ot retaining it; hut be can devise no more exalted plan than that of truckling to the popular passions to tbe lowest passion which a nation can own oolieotively, that of national robbery ?the one most perilous to his beloved countrv, that of territorial ex'enMon by military conquest. His message is an apology for sueh oourses, couened tn language so barefaced thai it c.<n psas current only anions the rude and vu!,ftir. He Is either a pander to those classes,or a type of them; perhaps both Can much better be said of Louis Philippe ? Hiaspeech lias the brevity, the polish, the neutral tone of ind'fferenoe, which constitute the triok of royal dignity; but It is aa manifest a homage to the people ns the Prcident'a .long message. It Is, indeed, a more genuine auhmiasion I'OU'a Philippe has been remiuded of what He owea to the people, and mak<-s his acknowledgment*. For some years, while his whole efforts seemed to be concentrated on prrairving tbe peace if F.urope, he won, from the poaceat le, respect and piaise; his neglect to fulfil the requiteui'-ntt of the obarter were overlooked in hia presumed x-ial to develops the material welfare of France ?

Both the American President and the Ruropean moniroh are truckling to the people for seiQsh purposes ? l'olk to retain his B*?t fir four years more; Louis Pol- ' llppe .o fix bis family ou tha throne. Both present an ui'ly ep-otiiole; yet one not devoid of consolatory suggestion. Time was when rulers could play their pranks without consulting the nation, which was helplessly dragged after them to costly victory or degraded captivity?the compulsion to take oouasel with the people now, is some guarunty against abuse. In France, we s*e tbat It brings back the king to a wiser tone; and in that respect the n onarohy seems to be better off than the republic. Polk follows his people for evil, Louis Philippe for good Tli- rea?on Is to be sought in the Intellectual c'lff.-renoe between the two people France is a metropolian country, liiitb lii mentaloultnr? aud civilization The United Htates retain aiuoh of the rudeness of a coloaial country, fall oulture extending only to a minority so email as to possess comparatively slight influence. The result is, tbat the monarchy, with its limited suffrage, and its undeveloped liberties, more thoroughly possesses Itself, and ooutrols Its rulers to more us* ful purpose, than the Model Republic, whose ruder passloos i place it at the mercy of lower Influences. Henoe we i 1 >arn that tbe dignity and safety of nations reside less in tha formal structure of institutions than in the in- < telligence and moral elevation of the men themselves , It h not the Louis Phitippes or the James K Polks that 1 mete out human advancement. 1 Faalilons fur January.

In patterns tor evening social parties they are made In p<nk vnd nlais satin, trimmed with ermine, und small mantelet to match. The stvle of trimming redingotes is no longer confined to the tabller form ; many have trimmings enolroling the skirt, partioulai ly in quilting Cloth drefses aro worn, dark blue and claret being the favorite oolors ; they are embroidered In soutaohu, intermixed with embroidery en relief, tbe tight haok of the oorsa^e being equally oruamented with ibe front; they are also aeooinpanied by mantelets embroi aereu ana miooiw , iuiu< nave merely Hingis wiu? g?lon vtlonte, or four very narrow ones divided by buttons The ^imp-trimmings continue an indispensable accessolri! of moat tolUttee, and not ODly for robes and manieaux. but also bjonets and oaps are frequently ornamented by thein.
