Tlif Kuropcan SiewH?The Fronch Election. We give elsewhere, the details of the news brought by the steamer last evening to this port, the heads of which we received by telegraph, and sent yesterday by telegraph and extras to our numerous readers in city and country. As we have already stated, the most important intelligence that can be expected in a few weeks from Europe, will consist of the results of the approaching French elections. The elections take place on the thirteenth ol this month, and, accord: ing to all reliable accounts, the new Assembly will present a different aspect in its political character | from the first Assembly, and exercise a different j uiiiurutc uu vuiiiuig ?it uuiupc. aii uuuacquence of the folly tind madness of the Socialists, sound and practical republicanism in France, and throughout the Old World, has received a melancholy check for the present. The process of separating the tares from the wheat has, however, commenced in France, and will go on there, and elsewhere in the Old World. Socialism will soon be placed on its proper footing, and sink. int? that insignificance which it ought to have reached long ago. But there will be a great many ups and downs in the course of affairs before true republicanism can be permanently established in France, and spread throughout the continent. In the approaching elections there, we have every reason to believe the Socialists will be left in an awful minority, and We much weaker in the new Assembly than at present. But, by the spirit of repulsion, manifested in all such processes, it is probable that the new Assembly may contain a larger majority in favor of a qualified system of monarchy, than any one had reason some time since to expect .Paris and the larger cities and|towns are undoubtedly republican?some of them even ultrarepublican ; but throughout the country, the folly of the provincial government, and the reveries of the Socialists, have injured the cause of democracy, und will, in some degree, pestpone its triumphs. But we cannot believe that the present form of government in France, nor a government in any other form, republican, monarchial, or imperial, can exist in its present financial condition and terrible amount of annual taxation. The annual expenses of the French government amount to four hundred millions of dollars, and there seems to be no ordinary remedy to abate this expenditure. A vast debt, an enormous expenditure, an oppressive taxation, these constitute the overwhelming burden which must press any government to the earth. If ever a republic can be permanently established in Frunre, it must be by commencingde novo, with a clcar civil list, freedom from debt, and a vastly decreased expenditure and taxation. But, at present, called on to maintain a standing army of lour hundred thousand idle soldiers, under arms, and more than that number of office-holders, the prospects of France are not the most cheering. Still, nur faith in the strength and progress of liberal principles does not waver. By and by a remedy will be found for these evils, and the benign star of republicanism will be in the ascendant forever. Si.ieveoammo.msm i\ Newspapers.?Our philosophic contemporaries, Greeley & McElrath.of the lYibune, alia* Messrs. Fourier <te Fudge, of modern journalism, a/ia* slievegammonism, should not lose their temper, for it is not consistent with cither socialUm or slievegarnmonism to utter such an illtempered thing as the following, which we find in their columns of yesterday :? Ovw California Nkws.?The Herald of yesterday assert* that the Intelligence from Sun Kranciscoto March Clh. publishedexclusively in the Tribune of Thursday, v as no news at all. l>ut manufactured by us out of old advices! The dastard who made that charge know it was false when ho uttered it The news published by us was copied from no newopnper.au his boasted advices of Vlon. (toy wore, but collated Ijy ue from a number of original letter* written in San Francisco to the Oth of March and Sun Iilas to the 2Hth. an we originally stated Not one line of < alifornin news that we printed on Thursday was made up from anything but tho original letters aforesaid; and ifany one will make it an object to prove their authenticity and the correctness of tho dates aforesaid, we will place them beyond cavil. Otherwise. we choose to rest here Here is another very amusing specimen of the temper of this new ism in the management of newspapers-?that is to say, slievegammonism. The impudence and coolness with which these worthies put forth their slievegammon California news as "telegraphic," were laughed at^ by the whole community. They now hack out from the telegraphic part of it, antk-ontent themselves with saying that they "collated" the intelligence from a number of original letters, written in Sati Francisco and .Sun Dlas. Their first announcement was, that it came to them "by telegraph." How do they reconcile that announcement and this backing out ! It is precisely of a piece with their famous battle I at Slievegammon in old lJrin It is precisely of a piece with their announcement of appointments for this city having been made at Washington by the cabinet. But more?The paragraphs which Messrs. Fourier At Fudge amusingly designate " news from ( alilornia," were all a piece of Slievegammonism, and the most impudent slieveganimonism in journalism that we have ever seen. Thr?e or four days before they palmed upon the community that piece of manufacture, we had given the only reliable intelligence from the Pacific, the most important items of which were the arrival ot lur^e number of vessels at .San Francisco, and the declaration of the sentiments of the people of California, adverse to slavery and slave labor. Hut, in making up their California manufactured news, our philosophers had not seasa enough to seize even the two most important points of the intelligence which wo had received from that quarter, during the las', few weeks. They made up a hash of the merest drive] - the ipo*t contemptible trash that ever was i palmed oil upon a community, unless we caa find | i's parallel in the dmly loolery which they tsMie | uliout Proudhon, !>.rd Oabet, nnd th" French Socialists. ' Pociali.-m is net the only ism characteristic of the wonderful Trilntn*. They have the sole merit of inventing felieveganunonisin in distant intelligence; ant! we believe these shevegammon philosophere will now have n monopoly of this new and mighty isvi in newspa|>er intelligence and literature. City Ihpiiovkmknts and City Taxes.?Some of our newspapers are crying out for more improvements, more taxes, more expenditures, more jobs, more debt. They revel in everything like spoils and fat. I5y great effort and much rasfi.litv llie iMXeu of tlliri Pil? nnil?r tliu Kiirriml J, .... - - "VI 1" tyhtt.ni of both |>arties, for the last few yearn, have reached tliree millions of dollars per annum. One would think tliut this immense Burn contributed by our property holders, tax payers, and daily laborers (for all have ultimately to pay taxes), would be enough to satisly the appetite of the greediest cormorant ; hut it seems that it is not considered sufficient. The cry now is, to add two new streets to the weft side of the city, by taking thetn from the North Kiver ; to double the extent of the Battery, and (ill it up all around ; to build extensive slaughter houses beyond Murray Ilill, or anywhere else ; to fill the public walks with statues of warriors and small |<oliticiuns; to hang up portraits and paintings by pupils of the academy, in all the public rooms about town, and in every poor house on the island, including the Tombs and the cells of the felons. To accomplish this vast work will require our taxes to be increased to five millions of dollurs, or, perhaps, six or seven, besides making a vast addition to the city debt. Well, we are not sure but that it is best to go the whole figure at once? to support all those improvements, to encourage those vast expenditures, to indulge in every piece of extravagance, to increase the taxes?so as to bring men to their senses by some practical philosophy touching their pockets. The new Corporation will soon be in power, and they will be watched with a most vigilant eye. We do not expect a great deal from them. We doubt whether they will touch reform at all. We rather think they will endeavor to make the last grab at the public purse, and follow the policy of those who run away from a broken bnnk and ruined building ?fill their pockets with all that is valuable, and then decamp as soon as possible. With these views, we think that the proceedings of the Common Council, from the first of next month to the lirst of January next, will present some of the most <-xtraordinary pieces of robbery, depredation, and plunder that have been exhibited in this country since the time of the old United States Dank down to the recent explosion of the Canal Bank in Albany, under the patronage of the expert financiers Croswell and his associates, the old leaders of the democratic party. The whigs are in power in the Corporation. It is the last chance, under the old system,that they will have, and they ought to make good use of the little time before them. Let them increase the taxes, fill in the Battery, invade the North Kiver, and make two streets of warehouses and docks in that region, pave the streets, build 1 ___t l *. ' ? J-L. - tluugnier-nuur?-?, uitictinr iu?; uny ueui 10 twenty millions, and make the taxes amount to five or six millions, and it is certain that when they go out of power they will do so with full pockets. DisTiNonsHED Arrivals from Eitropk.?Among the arrivals, last evening, in the list of passengers by the steamer America, from Liverpool, we find the name of Joshua Bates, Esq., accompanied by his lady. Mr. Dales is one of the most efficient and talented partners in the great financial house of Messrs. Darings, in London. He is an American by birth, a son of Massachusetts, and has won his way to one of the highest positions in the financial circles of England and of Europe, by the force of his native talent and energy. His lady is a native of the same State, and justly occupies a high position in 1 the social circles of the British metropolis. Their arrival, on a visit to their native land, will be greeted by their numerous friends in this country, who, in their visits to Europe, have enjoyed their hospitality both in their house in London, and at their elegant country residence near Richmond ; at the latter place we once had the pleasure of enjoying their society, in company with Louis Napoleon, the present President of the French Republic, soon after his escape from the fortress of Ham. Mr. Bates will probably remain during the ensuing summer in this country. A Kara Avis?Correction.?We are informed on the best authority that Hugh Maxwell, Esq., who was very efficient in the canvass resulting in the election of General Taylor, is absolutely not a candidate for any office?has applied for none? has no agents at Washington?has sent no papers there, nnd is now at this very time engaged in " planting his potatoes " and trimming his grape vines, at Nyack, on the North River. We are very happy to hear it, and record the interesting intelligence with great satisfaction. Such a rarity ought to be encouraged.

A large and highly respectable assemblage of the French residents of New York met on Friday evening, to celebrate the first anniversary of the French Republic, the day which brought political liberty find universal suffrage to that brave arid g illant people?the day when the gamtnx *t Paris and the heroic population of that great city rose in their might und stormed the citadel of monarchy, overthrowing in a few hours the throne of Louis Philippe, and gallantly bidding adi?utothe fallen King, at- he pawed unhurt amid the armed crow-l, to escape from the people who, if he had ruled with fidelity and kindness, would have been as ready to nb<'d their blooil to protect him a? they wore to pour it out to overthrow hi in It w at exceedingly appropriate and befitting to the couritv of tbU Rrrat event, that the mtnni i,f it* atmlvxriarv xliniilil ) ? oi.1i.ki-> I ...1 V.? . .11,. ner, inasmuch u* a dinner ww, singularly enough, the proximate cause of the outbreak and revolution, the little point, as it were, of the needle which to tolled the Utig growing and overgrown carbuncle of corru.it mou irchy, and scattering its putrid contents, dissipated the exert) cence. and caused it to be eradicate I from the 1> dy politic. Had Mr. Oulzot, with all the boast of bin dogmutic wisdom, only possessed wisdom enough to let the people go to dinner on that memorable day. It is highly probable that the dinner which was celebrated yesterday in New York, at the Hotel de Paris, would never have been celebrated, and the infatuated King might yet be seated in the saddle in which he boasted, but the day before his fall, that he was securely tlxed But pride and boasting are always seen to end in this way,

namely, in certain overthrow and disgrace, proving be> ' ml all doubt that there is an immutable law and an inevitable power watching over men and all their affairs, which pulls down pride from its highest pinnacle, and defeats the best laid schemes of injustice for its own aggrandizement. Towards eight o'clock, the parlors and saloons of the hotel de Paris, on Broadway, were crowded with the numerous throng of the highly respectable French citizens of our city ; and the vivacious talk of the lively French resounding in all the rooms and corridors, almost led one to fancy that Paris, not New York, was the place we were in The tine military-looking guard called the Young Lafayette lluard. marched inline style at the loud beat of the drum into the hotel, preceded by a band of excellent music ; and every thing being now ready, the company proceeded in order to the wellfurnished dining room. Here the tables presented a scene enough to make the heart of the gourmand and ton rivant beat higher and quicker at the array of choice and excellent regale All the exquisite art of Freuoh cookery seemed to have exhausted Itself in furnishing a display upon the tables such as might provoke tile rated appetite even of the satiated. The very sight was exciting, and, though all had already dined before yet all were now ready to dine again. Thus art can stimulate nature, aud revivu thejaded appetite to fresh exertions. The chair was taken, and most admirably filled by Oeorge Ouynet, Ksq., of this city, ou each side of whom were seated the invited guests, some of whom came from distant cities of the Union to honor this great national festival. Among them we noticed (Vlons. La Fort, a well known and respected merchant of Philadelphia, whoso liospitable reception of the French military company from New V ?rk. on its visit to Philadelphia, was. at the time. uiMcli spoken of. On the immediate right hand of the President, sat the gentlemen of the press, foremost among whom we noticed the gentlemanly aud talented editor of the Courier drs Elatt l/nis, and next to him one of the working editors and reportors of tho New Ywk Ilnald. This is a peculiar characteristic of the French nation, to honor literature, and to give tho highest rank to men of letters, who, among most other people, unless they happen to be rich men, are looked upon and treated as little, if at all, beyond shoe blacks and barbers in rank and estimation. While tho French thus liouor the press, the Knglish. at thuir St. George's festival, would have offered them a seat among the negroes and musicians at a side table, as they did on one occasion to the gentleman who was seated last ninht on the right hand of the worthy president of this uoble and dignified French meeting. After ample justice had been done to the abundant provision of luxurious dainties which loaded the tables, and the rich Bordeaux had circulated freely among the joyous guests, the President rose, amid loud cheering, to address the meeting. This he did in a neat and elegant speech, alluding, in a most happy and patriotic style, to thu great occasion of the evening's meeting, and was loudly cheered, as he proceeded, by the ardent approval of the immense crowd which listened to him. For wo forgot to mentiou that the place was too narrow for the company, and if lastle Garden had been selected as the place of meeting, instead of the Hotel de Paris, it would undoubtedly have been filled, so great was the crowd, many haTing been obliged to retire, prevented from participating in the festivity for want of room. The Chairman then proceeded to road the various letters received from distinguished individuals, apologising for their unavoidable absence on the occasion of this national celebration. The letter from the ambassador of the French Republic at Washington wan particularly pleasing, showing a decided participation in the spirit of the meeting, though absent from unavoidable and necessary causes. Not so was it with the French consul at New York, whose absence on this occasion created much comment, and was universally stigmatized as a mark of bad feeling, and an evidence of renegade republicanism. To refuse to honor the sovereign of one's country, when that sovereign is the people. was looked upon by all present as an act of treason and traitorism, exceeding in its bad features the disrespect which ever could be shown to an individual sovereign. The letter of excuse sent on this occasion by the French consul, contained no plausible excuse, but justified his absence on ths ground that be was only a " commercial man.'' as if a commercial man cannot be a Frenchman and a republican, and is therefore acquitted from showing respect to the republican government and institutions of his country. Most of the guests present were commercial men, who, though not receiving, like the consul, the pay of the French Republic. yet came in voluntary patriotism to show their devotion to the new-bom institutions of their beloved country. When the perusal of the letter from the consul was finished, one loud simultaneous outburst of groans, hisses, and contemptuous indignation, bur-it forth spontaneusly from the assembled multitude. It was such a greeting to the direllct consul as Lord F.lgln is represented lately to have uict with in the groaning* and rotten-egg salutations with which ho is said to have been honored by an indignant people. The Chairman, in conclusion of his remarks and the reading of the various correspondent, exclaimed. " f'irr la Repuhlique upon which loud and rapturous cheering ensued, and the band struck up the Marseillaise amid deafening and enthusiastic applause. Mons. Raviniait then rose on behalf of the committee. and addressed the Assembly. He said :? When we received the letter which your President has just read to you. the committee of this banquet could not but feel a lively indignation at the refusal of the consul to unite with his fcllow-clllsens. to celebrate the anniversary of the proclamation of the republic. I come before you now, on the behalf ef the committee, to express their feelings at a conduct so unworthy. Kvery one of us. who may have had business to transact with the consul, will, doubtless, be ready to give him due credit for his teal In performing the commercial functious of his ofilco. Hut the character of Consul General of the French Republic to the Cnited States of America, is not, we consider it. limited to the passive action of signing passports, and other official papers, and receiving annually the salary of twenty thousand francs which the republic liberally bestows upon him. We. therefore, felt a deep sentiment of grief and indignation, as you. gentlemen, may well imagine, at such conduct ; especially so, as at the time of the celebration of our glorious day of February, a regret was then felt that there existed not a perfeet unanimity among all Frenchmen here, in giving the trial to thosu glorious days which they merited from overy true republican. I will only ask of you. gentlemen, and I will put it to every American now present among us (of whom there are several) whether If, In Europe, an American consul should refuse to join his fellow citlxcns there in the celebration of the Fourth of Jul v. would not a general burst of indignation fall upon him ? Would not his recall from the national post he occupied, be demanded; and would he not be immediately recalled by the government at Washington, for thus proving recreant to the honor of his country ? The French republicans of New York, however, will show themselves more indulgent on this occasion than to take any stops to procure his recall lor such a violation of official respect to the government of the republic. But we will teach the consul to know that as the official representative of the government of the French Republic. government which emanates from the sovereign people, lie must be a little more circumspect for the future, wuciJ iuu |ivupir 111mi wuuiu no iiuiub mi um t'liiui U1IIUQI ad J honors, <lo b'W the liouor to extend to hiin such an invitation. Thin neat, temperate nn<l elegant reproof was received with louil cheers of approbation. whereupon again, "Three groan* lor Monsieur Simoual, the Consul," were proposed and given con amove and most lustily l>y the whole Indignant company. The I'hcsidrmt then rose again, to propose the regular toasts for tho evening, which were given in the following order, each one calling forth a suitable manifestation of feeling, with occasional ardent and animated remarks. 1. The Day trr celebrate ?A day as doar to French republicans hh the 4th of July, the glorious souvenir of America, is to Americans !i. Tht French Rtpuhlit.?'The unanimous proclamation of this form of government by the nine hundred delegates of the nation, is a sure pledge of its future duration. Nothing elso Is possible. The happiness of the country and of the whole world depends upon its consolidation and security, for our example will tlnd imitators among all oppressed nations Shaking off like us the yoke of monarchy from their shoulders, they will exclaim with us, "The Republic for over:" 3. Rrmiblic oj the United Statu.?The first upan the battle tii'ld of liberty, and also the first to stretch out her hand to our assistance. The two republics, sisters t>f liberty, Invite all other nations to unite, and form with them but one *lngle family. 4 The Roman Republic. She is the pioneer of the inJependvnoe of all Italy, a country too noble, too beautiful. to remain in fetters under the ywke of the Austrian*. 6. The Freiidtnt of the French Republic. ? When the notion establinhed, for a limited period, a chief aver itself, it desired thereby to consecrate the principle that (in* i r If not hereditary, and to put a check upon hi* unbition. '1 his toast gave rise to a little scene of some animation atld exnitenieut. The hisses and the cheers aaein:<d equally divided Kor some time, the noise was so treat that nothing of the many voice*, which wore all xelaimiiig together, could be heard. The I'resident arn?<>tly entre?t.i?d sllrnoe < rias of "Hear it1 ha?r ill - rttil' read' no: no! no'?yea' yes! ye*'" resound**! throughout the room At length the toast was giwn out. and drank down by each according to the atrength of hlit swallow (i The I'rindent of the litvubUc of the Untied Statu.

Cititen soldiers?worthy rival* of an army whose dangers they i-hare, they, as well as the army, know how to vauquish. and to die tor the safety of the republic, aud the maintenance of the laws and Constitution. 10. Universal Suffrage?The fundamental principle of republican government, by which every citizen lias a share in the govereign authority Power proceeds solely from the people, and every government which refuse* to recognise. or which violate* this saerod law, is a government of usurpation, and unworthy of a free people. 11 Public Education?Without education, men bow <Jo?n under slavery. It is the duty of every good government to spread abroad the benefits of education, among all classes of society, for no one can be a good citizen it he docs not understand his political rights aud duties. Now, ah the evening advanced, and the rich Falernlan in the long necked bottle* diminished, bo in a direct proportion the hilarity and joyous feeling of the company increased. Several volunteer toast* were, after thin, given, accompanied with lively and animated speeches. all of them expressive of ardent zeal and admiration for the cause of republicanism in general, and of republicanism in France and Italy In particular. The cttuho of liberty in Italy evidently enlisted the sympathies of all the company proscnt Mr. Bkcchahim, a young Italian artist, a resident of Now York, addressed the company, and wa< received with loud and repeated cheers He said: the men who, in exile, have devoted their whole existence to theciuse of their country's liberty, aud who havo proclaimed the Koiuan republic, will, we are assured, do all in their power to continue their noble efforts to establish the liberty of all Italy. They will, doubtless, do ho, and will succeed in their glorious labors, unless the treasonable intrigues of diplomacy, and of ti.? tyrants of Kurope. should arrest their oourse in the coutcst which is destined to liberate fair Italy from tyranny and despotism. If wc behold with grief and sorrow, republican France under a retrograde government, sending an army to assist our tyrants to stifle our last efforts to conquer back our rights and our liberties, yet, as some consolation, wc see with joy, on the other haud, our brethren of France, In Sicily, swoaring to conqueror die for the liberties of Sicily and our country. (Loud and animated cheers ) Our fathers worn joined with your fathers in pouring out their blood with Frenchmen upon the same battle field. (Loud applause.) They fought in the ranks of your armies lor that France against which all the despots of Kurope were united and combined t? destroy her Citizens, it is only by union that the democrats of France and of Italy can hope to triumph over despotism and tyranny. The United States of America, the country of our adoption, gives us the example; let us remember and act up to lior just an?l celebrated motto, ' United we stand, divided wo fall." (Loud cheers followed this burst of eloquence.) Mr. L. E. Du Biiisson then offered the following toast, which was drank with loud cheers : Thr French ami *1m<rican Prtst of New York?so well represented this evening at our national banquet. Dr. Wiiitehi ati, on the part of the New York Herald, briefly replied, in the French language, to the highly complimentary and flattering toast. I)r. QfACKtMBoss followed, and, in a strain of animated eloquence, enlarged upon the noble traits of French character which he hud met with during his residence at I'aris. He could undertake to say, that an American in France finds himself better treated by Frenchmen than even by his own countrymen. In all the struggles of France, she was followed by the cordial sympathies of the American people. America will always be found on the side of France Dr. Quackeuboss concluded a speech full of generous and liberal sentiments, in relation to France and her institutions, by offering as a toast? La Btlle France, which was drank with great applause. Monsieur T. Kciiartk, a member of the Committee, of whose polite attentions we cannot speak highly enough, then gave the following toast : ? Jlljihonae At Lainartine. Mr. Kcharte enlarged, in an eloquent and animated address, upon the character, course, and conduct of Lamartine, whom he denominated, with classical appropriateness. the Scipio of France. This speech was re tfiiru wiiti mc unu wvi?v vuccin aiiu juuuroi up(iiHUM'. Mr. DRcrrorB, Vicc-rresident of the banquet, guru the following:? Gtneral Cavaignac?A soldier without fear, a citizen pure and without reproach, a republican by inheritance us well aft in heart. France owes him the highest dignity with which u republican can be honored. The day will come when France will also pay this debt which she owed him. Seme few token* of non-concurrence and disapprobation were mingled with the loud applause with which the above toast generally was received by the coinpauy. Citizen A. Barkrv then gave the following : ? " The alliance of all nations, for the triumph of liberty. and for the destruction of all the monarchies upon the face of the earth.'' Several other toasts were given and speeches made, which the lateness of the hour prevented us from re. porting; when, after an evening of undisturbed harmony, and of festivity gratifying to every one present, a* the shades of night dispersed and the morn slowly began to dawn in the distance, the company broke up. amid cheers of animated delight and enthusiasm.
