AFFAIRS ABROAD. Ovr London CorrotpondeiM, London, Friday Evening, Feb. 9,1849. Coming of Parliament? Imws for hrtland? Arm Reduction.?Elect ten*?New Minister for th Untttd States? Literary and Theatrical NetosGtneral Intelligence?The Cholera?Money an. Railway Markets. At length the PuiHement baa been opened b; the Queen in peison. The state carriages vrer ordered out; the servants put on their gaye: dresses; foreign ministers and ambassador weie iu tuil attendance; and in due time, Her Ma jesty read ber speech to the dutiful lairds and Com mons. Tne document was, like all others of tl kind, very ambiguous, aud promised nothing. Th outline in my last, approached pretty nearly to th original; lor alter intimating that a suspension c arms had keen effected, both {in the northern an. southern Darts of Europe, it touched upon the r< cent rebellion in the Punjuub, and recommendei the repeal of the nat igation laws. Ireland, as matter ot course, was not forgotten, nor was th loyally of the Knglieh people so insignificant i matter as to be passed over slightly; this was,there fore, specially alluded to ; and then, after a gentle hint that the estimates should be more econo micallv framed, the 8|ieech was ended. It hat been deemed prudent by the ministers to omital mention of our relations with foreign countries and from some unexplained reason, mention wai not made of the puBiiii treaty with the United States Taken altogether, much dieSMtisfactisn could not bt evinced at the speech. These manifestos art really become of so ridiculous an import as to provoke Utile or no ciittcism ; people treat them verj silentlv; lor it has become the practice to mystifj their meaning to such an extent, as to make i scarcely worm while to attempt to unravel it. Ai might be antu-iim'ed, there were debates on th< address in both houses, and amendments proposer by Lord Stanley in the Lords, and Mr b'lsrael in the Commons. In the House of Peers th< speeches were Mat, and the address was carrier by a majority of two only. The debate in the lower house was more spirited. Mr. D'lsraeli't speech was brilliant, sarcastic, and to the point, ai tar a9 conveying a censure on the ininisterii policy could be termed ; hut after entering at con tiderable length into the various topics embracer in the royal speech, his amendment?" that we re grt't to be compelled humbly to repre3eut tr your Majesty, that neither your relations witf foreign powers, nor the state of the revenue nor the condition of the commercial and ma nufacturiug interests in this country, arr such as, in our opinion, justity us in address ing your Majesty in the language of congratula tion, end that large portions of the agriculture and colonial intereatsof the empire are laboring un der a state ot progressive depression, calculated tr excite apprehension and anxiety,"?was withdrawn. The only important matter of debatr yet introduced has been the discussion upsi the continued suspension of the habeas enrjm act in Ireland. The speech intimated that tin government would ask, at the earliest oppor tunity, for au extension of the powers grantei to the Lord Lieutenant of that country. There wa a sharp debate on the measure; but with a singf exception or two, the opposition was confined n me irisn niemoers. u is a pity mat nieaiiB or i more conciliatory nature are not taken to gain th affections of the people of Ireland. Coercive mea lures may be brought into operation, and renewed but will never produce the deaired etiect. As lonj as the Irish church exists, there will never be peao and contentment m that quarter; do away witl this, and a great plague-spot will be removed. Th bill passed the first reading in the Commons, am will be taken into the Lords without delay. The work of reduction in the liuglish army ha already commenced in real earnest. Orders havi been issued by the commander-in-chief, (the Duki of Wellington,) to discharge those who are sickl; and unlikely to become good soldiers; also, thosi who are drunkards and men of bad character; and also, to allow those to retire from the service wh< may wish to do so. It is made an exceptionclaua in the act that sons of soldiers, born in the army, o those brought up in our military asyluma, are to bi retained. Recruiting in all regiments is for th present susi ended. The contemplated diminutioi through thin-warrant will be ten thousand men 1m mediately, thus effecting some saving in the ex penditure. A corresponding reduction is about t be made in several branches of the civil service the stump office will be consolidated with the ex cise, and most ot the duties periormed by the oth cers ot the last mentioned department. The election of a member of Parliament for Leo minster has terminated in the choice of a son c Sir Robert Peel. Sir Edward Bulwer Lytton was immediately after the vacancy, a candidate, am had even aadrtsred the electors; but either findini his chance doubtful, or trom private mocireswhicl have not been allowed to find their way to th public ear, he suddenly retired, and Mr. Henr Peel h&B walked over the course. This younj gentleman protr sees his political creed toassimi'at with his father's. Upon essentinl matters the] coincide, (how admirably convenient!) so thi newly elected member takes his seat under the po litical protection ot his father. Report speak favorably of his abilities, not that it is for an in atant conceived he possesses Sit Robert's talent He may, however, under ms guidance, soon as sume the ready confidence and parliamentary tac of bis father. The maiden citeech of the son i looked forward to with interest. Sir Francis Baring, the Frst Lord of the Admi rgjty, has been rtturned, without opposition, to Portsmouth. It is fortunate that this member o the administiation should be the representative o one of the largest dockyard towns in Europe. A change will shortly be made in.the office o British minister to the United States. Sir H Pakenliam is to return, and his appointment is an nounced to be filled by Sir Henry Bulwer, (brothe to the novelist,) whom this country was compelled - u?? a duuj i uiiic iv Ktan uviii tivn you will like the newly appointed minieier is i matter we will not dare conjecture on this side o the Atlantic: The change will be carried into ef feet as soon as existing arrangements will permit There has been quite a stir mode here by a work entitled "America Compared with England.' The book was reviewed, less than a fortnight since by the Timet, in a very unfavorable manner Charges were made ngainstits author of endeavor ing to subvert the institution ot marriage, and many other matters of a similar tendency- T< this allegation he replied, denying the truth of the accusation, and plainly told the Timet writer he could not have lead the book. As far as the controversy has gone?and it is not likely to be renewed?the author of '^America Compared with England" appears to be tight; and, what is almost as pleasant, people think him so, much to the discomfiture of the staff employed on the leading journal. The strictures of the Timet on the work have caused it to .have an immense sale; so tnat, doubtless, the author laughs in his sleeve at the whole affair, which answers his purpose in giving publicity to the book more effectually than a hun dred advertisements would have done. Your readers will be soiry to read, in the list ol bankrupts, the nameot Mr. Simmonds, the coloaia agent, ana the editor of the Colonial Magattn* The turn which this gentleman's affairs hav< taken, have caused much regret, as it is wel known he has been most energetically striving, foi some time past, to call the attention of the Ehglist government to the stute of their colonies. Hu magazine has had for its almost sole object thti view. The failure of the newspaper entitled th< Courier, started by Mr. Simmonds, about four teen months back, is reported to have embarrasset him.

Affairs of the Krtucll Republic. I [Ccrretpondenon of the London Chronicle.] I P.vms, Monday evening, Feb 19, 1819. The general election, which, in consequence of the recent decision ot the National Assembly, must now ot necessity take place in the course of the ' month of April, will have a most important intlu" ence on the future prospects of France; but it ts singular to remark, that hitherto the Paris news' papers have been almost entirely Bilenton the sub' ject. It must not, however, be supposed that their silence proceeds from indifference. There is no subject thut at the present moment occupies so much public attention as the elections, or in w hich j so much real activity is displayed. The fact is, I j that the silence of the newspapers is the result of , prudence. Each patty bus its central committee j silting in Pans, which issues the mot iVordre. Ihe central committee gives directions natonly to ' its metropolitan organs, but to the branch committees, established all over the departments; thus , the centralization system, which had such powerful influence en the evsrem of government in the country, is applied ana carried out in all the parties into which the body politic is divided. ~ 1 have, in former letters, given you some account | oi the election committees formed by the different , parlies into which the National Assembly is divi* ded. It the Assembly there are five great parlies j ?the liepubiic&nB de la Veille, the Moderns, the M outs guards, the Pure Republicans, and a section ol the Republicans de la Veille, known as the j adherents of the Executive government, which preceded the administration of which Geneial ' Cavaignac was the head. Each of these parties have organized a committee, aud they are each ' preparing programmes, which are to be issued in ' the course ot the present week. The Modems, who are also known as the Club of the Rue de Poitiers, is by far the most import? ant of these sections, not only on account of its 1 numerical strength, but oil account of the eminent j* names which it possesses among its members. ' Uy wards ol 3C0 of the most noted members of the ? National Assembly are members ol it, and among ? them are MM. Thiers, Berryer, Mole, De Montalembeit, De Kemusat, De Malleville, and a host ol e oibers. It will be observed, that amoug the members are many partisans of the house of Orleans, as ' well as deemed legitimists, and the party may be ^ considered ss the living emblem ot the recnnciliaF tion and union of the supporters ot the two branches ? ol the house of Bourbon. Out of this party, the P President ot the republic formed his first ministry, and it still remains in power. I have already informed you that the Club ol the Rue de Poitiers has recently formed an election committee oi 3<> p members, who are to have tha management of all ? that is to be done on behalt ot the party throughout riuuvc. j^tei iiigiii, uir .>u iiicmutrrs niei m me residence of Count Mofe, when a sub committee ' was appointed to select 30 members of the mode? rate party, not being members ot the National As? eembly, who are to complete the committee.' On * Thursday next, the programme ol the party, with ? a list of the <>?i members ot the committee, is to be ? publish* d. The programme declares that the party. ot which the c?miMitee is the organ,is an avowed " union ot all the conservative parties against social* ' ist ideas, secret tendencies, and the radical reform ? of the constitutn n." At one ot the reeent ;? meetings of the Club of the Rue de Poitiers. " a difference occurred between MM. Thiers and l~ lierryer on the one part, and the Marquis de la Rochejaquelin on the other. M. de la Rochejaf quelin proposed that the election committee of the club should be formed of sixty members, among t wnom fifteen should b? Legitimists, fifteen Orlean" ists, fifteen Bonapartists, and the remaining fifteen P Moderate Republicans. This motion was reject ed, and it is said that M. de la Rochejaquelin is ? consequently to leave the club. ? The new party which has recently sprung up un| der the auspices of M. Napoleon Bonaparte, the i son of the ex-King Jerome, is one ot considerable ? importance, as its numbers and influence are likelv meatlv to extpnH. At nrc?pnl if in in ita inf.m. " cy. The committee has chosen M. Napoleon Bonaparte as its president, and two representatives, nrmely, MM. Ambert Ca/elles and Coute, as secretaries. The programme of this party is to be " published, it is said, to-morrow or next day, but * the list ot the committee is net to be published till it has attained the number ot 120 members, which, it appears, is not yet the case. " The Rivubiicans de la VtiUt are represented r by the chrb of the Palais National. It consists enr tirely of the partv which supported Gen. Cavaignac, and of wmch M.Marrast, M. Senard, See., ars r the leading members. This is, perhaps, thn largest, ana at the same time, moat compact of the ' parties in the Assembly: but since its defeat in * the election of the President, it has lost much ot its importance. It is thought that it will lose a ' large portion of its members by the dissolution. A section of the Rtpubltcant dt la VeilU, which I et parated from the main body alter the insurrection of June, and established itself under the name ol the Club of the Institute, is a small hut in flumtial party. Almost all the members of the , executive government are members of it, and among them MM. de Lamartine, Marie, Pag nerre, Barthelemv St. Hilaire, &c. &c. Negotia" lions have recently been opened between this ar[ ty and the pure Bonapartists, of which M. Napoleon Bonaparte is the head; and it is not improba, ble that a union will be formed between them. ; Should it take place, the united paity will be a most important one. | The only remaining party is that of the Montag' nards, or the advocates of the Rtjyubliqut democratize el tociale. It is almost unnecessary to say mat M. Ledru Rollin is the head of Una party. \ For some time there was a split between the red ' republicans and the socialists, but they have of late soldered up their differences, and they now work J together. Their prospects are, however, not very ' promising. They have no place of meeting, fo*, \ whea the present ministry showed a disposition to suppress all political clubs,the Montagnards, knewi ing that their fate was certain, closed tneir place of meeting of their own accord. They have hitherto made no open demonstration of their intentions , with respect to the elections, but the probability is j that many of them will lose their seats. . It is probable that the election of Louis Nnpoleon as President may be taken as a pretty safe mdication o* the result of the approaching election. The . new legislative Assembly will be composed pnn, cipally of Legitimists and Bonapartists. As to the Republicans of all shades, it is supposed that they | will suffer considerably, and that many ot the most rtmarkable ot those who sprung into notoriety im. mediately after the Revolution of February will f lumiiir uaci\ unci mcir uriuiuaj uoscuruy. 11 10 not nt all improbable that in the second legislature J of the Republic, the Republicans, as compared with . either the Legitimists or Bonapartists, will form a . verv insignihcant minority. Paris, WrdmrbtiaY ETiNir?o, Feb. 21.?There can be no doubt that the line of policy as regards * the recent revolution ct Rome, indicated ysster' day by M. Drouyn de Lhuye, in the National AsEembly, is satitlactorv to the great masB of the ' people of France, although it is far from being ' pleasing to the National and the organs of the Red Republicans. The nature of the discussion, ? as one of the Paris papers observes, was such that . neither party in the National Assembly was wil' ling to reveal all its views and intentions. The , Mountain concealed its attacks upon the principle , of religion and order under the delusivs veil of 1 lik?r?v and tka nnrtisans ol tne government would B not openly declare] that,! in re fusing to adro1^ ,n# ] , Roman Republicans to tne sympathy 1-a support f oi the Frebth batiob, they are a^lQate(j by a de* '.tiininaUnfc to reject all attempts propagandist!), which would render France odioua to the tedding j powers oT Eurojv^ and expose her to ihe aominaI tion of & pe*,nr irom whose violence she has ret cently r scared, after having seen her finances brought to the brink of mm, and the cause of orfi?r placed in extreme jeopardy. Tkfc real question k' appears to be, is France to undertake a crusade of ' pi opsgandism wherever republicans contrive for a moment to raise their heads^ Her great object ' fhould be to consolidate her own institutions, and . cot interfere wildly with those of other States. " There is no reason why France should not be in alliance with monarchical States, and there is no gusranty that she will find true friendship in other ' republics. There may be a sympathy tor republicanism, but it should never be earned to the exj: tent of compromising French honor and French interests, and, above all, it should never be shown |* to the d< tnment of the cause of order and religion ? of whatever form, for without ihem no goven i meat can be strong, no people can be happy, n , juat rights, whether of personal security, or sec rity rfproperty. can be respected, i The National Assembly to-day resumed the dit I cusaion on tha electoral law The 60th claus* . relative to the number of votes necessary for th validity of an election, gave rise to a long debate in the course of which five or six amendments wer brought forward and rejected. The plan propose by the committee, namely, that a candidate, i order to be elected, should have the voiea of e Jtijst one-eighth of the whole number of the cle? toi a inscribed in the lists, was ultimately adopter The whole of the remaining clauses, to the 73 were hleO adopted 1 hHve already inarmed you that all the partte ii'to which the great inas? of the body politic' Hauce is divide d ate at the present mouu u: basil uigsged 111 organizing their respective forces, an preparing lor the mommtous bt uugle which th approaching general election will donhtles* |>r? duce. and which will probab'y decide the fate i the French government for some time to, i regard not only to its ptrtonntl, but its form, have alto given you a sketch of the election con niittecs which ars in the course ol formation i Paris under the auspices ol the dilfereut leaders and the eilort making on the part ol sotne ol thei to add to their strength and importance by jud clone coalitions, it appears that these efforts hiv hitherto not produced any very important results On Monday last an interview took plHcebeiwce the President of the republic and MM. Thieti Mole, and Beriyer. on the subject of the committe of the Club of tne Rue de Poitiers. Very little h i been published by the papers on the subject of tin meeting, but it is generally enough spoken of i society. The President expressed Ins full confl dence in the parties under whose auspices the com nnttee in question has been formed, and in ih objects and intentions of the committee itself; br he suggested that, in order to meet tSe scruples c ihote who imagined that th? club of the Rue d i'oitiera was coni|>osed of persona who sought no thing else but a return to the dynasty ot the Houi boos under some sha;>e or other, it would be de suable it some republicans, known to be friends t General Cavaignac, and some known Buaap irtisti were added to the committee. MM. Thiers, Mole and Berryer, at once expressed th^ir readiness t act on the suggestion ; and, in the course ot yen terday, negotiations were open with MM. Dufaure Vivien, Laniuinais, G. de Beaumont, and De Coui teles, who are Blends ot General Cavaignac, an with MM Abbatucciand Vieillard.twoof the moi inlimate friends of the President. I have nt heard the result of the negotiation with the Bons oaitista; but, as regards the republicans, it ha nuheito tailed. MM. Dutaure, Vivien, and th others, have refused to become members ot th committee, en the ground that it is composed en tireiy ot Monarchists, among whom they would b an insigniueant minority, and mat tneir presence in such circumstances, instead of smoothing mai ters, would increase the difficulties. The const <jueuce is. (hat the committee will be compose almost entirely of Orleanists and moderate Legit; mists. The committee at the head of which M. Nape leon Bonaparte has placed himself, calls itself th Cniute Kepublicam Napolcomen. The Piesidec ot the republic continues to assume a neutral posi tion between the committee and that ot the Hue d Poitiers, but he cannot look with any marked die fauslitciion upon a party which is got up avowed! in lavor of his own pretensions, whatever the may be, and which is formed ot persons who lool to hint atone, and to the family to which he be longs, for advancement and greatness. It was orv of the extraordinary parts of the position of th President, thav, owing his election, as he did, i a greet measure, to the support ol the Monarchist! almost every man in his councils belonged to tin party, and a Bonapartiet was hardly to be dii covered anywhere. The object of this commute is evidently to All this void; and it remains t be seen whether it will succeed or not. Oue i the plans sH^gested is that ot looking out tor me ot ability, hitherto unknown in politics ; and it supposed that the Councils-General will supply considerable number. In the meantime, I u.ide stand that the ministry look upon M. Napoleci Bonaparte's committee with considerable jealous; and that it still threatens to disavow it. The man feeto ol this committee has been drawn up by M Napoleon Bonaparte, but is not yet published, protests against the pretensions ot monarchic and dynasties of all kinds, and appeals in favor < conciliation to all parties, on the ground that not) ol the old parties were satisfactory to the countr or sufficiently strong to maintain order. It cor eludes by alluding to the programme issued b Prirxrp 1 rutin M a nnlnnrt Ilununarfo ?t? iIia una <1 his election, and holds it up as the object for th realization of which the committae will strenuous ly contend. Very little haa been said, hitherto, of the candi dates to be brought forward at the ensuing alec tious. M. Thiers, who was returned for the d< partment oi the Seine, but was elected for th Seine Inferieure, is again spoken of as a candidat for the department of the Seine. MM. Horace Sa and Roger (dn Nord) are also spoken of, bt nothing is hitherto fixed. The committee of th club ot the Rue de Poitiers has already contrive to give oflence to a considerable body of the cor servatives, by a resolution which it is said to iiHV adopted, to oppose MM. Guizot, Dumont, Ducht tel, Hebert, and d'Haubersaert, wherever they ma be brought forward. On the other haad, it la sai to have resolved that it will support only fourtee out of the thuty-four members who at present re present the department of the Seine. A special committee, formed out ot the old mem bers el the clnb of the Institute, has already com menced its proceedings oa the subject of the aj preaching elections. Among them are MM. Gat nier Pages, Pagnene, BartheTemy St. Hilairc, Du clerc, Arc. They have published the following manifesto MASIVEATO or THE MODES ATE ERrOBLIC. The undersigned representatives, after hiring oon staotly practised, in the Constituent Assembly, thi polioy or conciliatory moderation in the name of whici several parliamentary olubs bare been formed, amoaj others that of the Institute and of the Counoil of State consider it their duty to point out in a frank deolara tioa the ideas which, in their opinion, ought to pre side over the new election, in order to respond to thi necessities of a new state of things. Franee is on thi eve of a great and decisive trial. In a few weeks shi will be called on to oomplete her institutions by th< election of the members of the Legislative Assembly The French people, who hare already made the selemt application of universal suffrage, who have so admire bly understood the duties Imposed on them by the ex erclse of their sovereign right?the people will again on this occasion, know how to produce from the ballot inguxnsthe consolidation of order, of peace, and o society. The Government whloh organises the Repub lie of 1848, is made not to oontinne the revolution, bu to close it. Unexpected and arising out of oomplloa tlonsand faults henceforth forgotten, the Republli ought not to be one of party, but one of progress an< of necessity. Its cause of existence Is at the saan time its evident legitimacy, and the averred weaknesi or all other forms of government; its honor la to re mailt the government Of all, to appeal to the efforts an< devotedness of all; its strength is the rational de velopcment of all rights, the ennobling of all duties; it advantages will be to increase labor, to enlarge th already wide bass of property, and to extend public as slstance to all who merit it. Let not the electors, by it resolution, weakness, or guilty passion, compromls publio order, which has been strengthened by it successive viotoriea over anaroby, and by the la creasing progress of a spirit of conciliation. Le us continue the work thus commenced, by improi lag it; let us beware of any attempt at a counter revo lotion; let us not, after so many sufferings and trlali put in danger the very existenoe of society. Let u know how to close energetically the career of revolo tlons. Any intrigue, any conspiracy against our re publican institutions, would be a orime.

Aa a oondltioi of our votes, let ne demand from every candidate i formal adheeion to the inetltntione founded in th name of the nation by the whole Constituent Aeeetn bly, and a loyal co-operation to the President elects* by universal suffrage.

P. S.?I have iust learned that, in consequent: of the refusal of MM. Duiaure, Vivien, and the re publicans dt la ViUle, to join the committee of th club of the Hue de Poitiers, a meeting took piac to-day between MM. Thiers, Mole, and Betryei and MM. Napoleon Bonaparte, Abbatucct, Conti fc. The club of the Hue de Poitiera offers to plac fifteen Bonapartists on its committee, on conditio] that the committee, of which M. Napoleon Bona parte is the President, should be broken up. It will be remembered that it was calculated tha the reduction on the duty en salt would produce i loss to the treasury ol upwards of sixty millions o francs. The Minister ot the Finances has just pub lishrd a statement, from which it apppears that comparing the receipts for the month ofJanuar" ( the present year with that of 1848, the loss he* bee greatly e xaggetated. II the receipts for th", r*mair >ng months be equal to the first, the loss W1jj n< , be above two qj ihrrt millions. \

A Colonel Kavelovski, of that capital, who, for a considerable time, had superintended the workings of exieneive gold mines in Siberia, and in tne course of rnineralogical pursuits, has latterly been exploring the interior of Africa, has discovered on the right bank of the Sornat, atone day's journey from Caasin, many considerable hills or moantains of auriferoasEunds. On the washing of these sands he found they yielded more gold than those ol Siberia. Pushing hiH researalies further, he examined the shores of the Kamla, the Dys, the Goucka, of the Benisch-Aogoi and the Gamanil, and iu all discovered deposits more or less extensive ol golden sands. He proposed, therefore, that miners and gold-washers should be sent from Russia to try tne grounds and undertake the washings on a large scale. t..? ..... n.. ........ ti.? r_ii : - I A Sir. iaAl'A IV VAMr UftTIIA.

Well, our information is very different truni this? from all we eari anther, keiitnrkv hn tmaucipatorB enough in it to curry the State by tlio largest vote ever given under the present constitution. All that they need, is to organize themselves throughout the State, to meet together, to understand one another, mid umte in harmonious action. They do not desire to do injustice to lbs owner o? slaves nor will they willingly do so, but they feel that their cause is a vital one, and that it must triumph. But suppose that this is not so, what then ! Are we. who hold that emancipation is a vital truth, to fold our hands in listlessness because we are not in a majority ! Are we to yield our principles, and surrender our right to hold opinions, because we are said to be in a minority T There in not a truth thulis held as sacred, that is cherished and nourished as essential to ttie well-being of society, that was not once iu a minority; and if the demand now made ui>on the emancipators of Kentucky had been yielded by the friends and devotees of truth through all ages, the world would at this hour be under the dominion of error, and would be unfit to live in. But the friends of emancipation know that they can engraft tiieir principle upon the new constitution, and no Uouchet of cold water will be likely to cool their ardor, nor shock their deliberate judgment. Let each man who loves Kentucky, and who wishes to secure prostier ity to the next generation of Keutuckians, he firm, courageous, energetic and prudent, and all will he well.

Kelsey died in this city on Friday night last, at an advanced age. lie has resided here for more than twenty years, and for most part of the time has kept an inferior tavern, near the foot of Main street. He has been suspected several times of committing depredations upon his guests, in the way of plunder, and once was charged with murder, but escaped punishment, trom a want ?f testimony sufficient to produce conviction. However, when adviLed that his death was near at hand, ho manifested a desire to have an acquaintance sent for, that he might confess hi* crimes before he died. Hie person sent for came, and the old man confessed. From that person, who is highly respectable, we learn that the statement involves several robberies ef guests at his house, and the murder for which he was attested many years ago, aid tried but not convicted. The full particulars of the confession have not been furnished us. but we learn that the old man stated that he buried the body on the premises. Some search has been made, but with what success we are not informed. During the search, on Saturday, several articles were tound secreted about the premises, which indicated the truth of the confession. Among other things was nn oval brass truck piste, much corroded, which hears this inscription?" E. Baldwin, , Rochester, N. Y." This may afford some clue to a mysterious disappearance either of the property nr iismnn nf th#? nwnpr. or n^rhnnn hnth.

They went to a disieputaoU house in Ann street, and there Langley attempted forcibly to com plete hia diabolical purpose, by violating her person; but fortunately the girl's struggles and loud outcries thwarted mm; assistance came, and she was rescued.
