TH NO. 5449. AS IITIOHAL 5UR0PEAN INTELLIGENCE, BROUGHT BY THE STEAMSHIP AMERICA, Ac. Ac. Ac. Our Dublin Correspondence. Di'blin, April 510, 1849, tchaic of Duffy?Statistic* of Dublin?The. Hale inJlid? The Cropt, ifc . The mall which brings you this letter will also bring ou the pleasing uud joyful intelligence of the disagreement of Mr. Duffy's jury, and his release. The Amoican people, I am sure, will hail this news with much nti.-fa.ct ion. and that Mr. Duffy has again, for the third ime?alter being tried thrice by a jury of his country len?escaped tbo fangs of the Attorney General uaa is musters, notwithstanding the unconstitutional deIsion en his guilt made lately by the Viceroy to the eputation which waited on him for the purpose of raying that clemency should be shown to the prisoner fUr all the persecution he had sustained. You will ee that si* of the jury were for a verdict of acquittal, nd six for a qualified verdict of guilty. iThls, of ourao, amounts to an ucquittul on the charges for hich ho was tried. This the government ure wel ware of; for it is stated that the Attorney General has eccived instructions not to proceed any further. Mr. Dully lias been suffering from indisposition since is release, and is at present on a visit to his brotheri-law, Dr. Callan, of llaggot street. It is now confiently hoped that the convicted State prisoners Icssrs. O'Brien, Meagher, &c., will not be pressod on 1* Writ of error, but that government will relax a reat deal of that rigor and severity Which have chaactcrlscd all their State prosecutions. The violent state of excitement which has been prouccd in the minds of the people, consequent on the ato-in-ald scheme, lias greatly subsided; as it is geneally supposed her Majesty's ministers cannot pass the leasurc Into a law, hut intend abandoning it, and, in la stead, propose an income tax? which. I ueed not ell vou, will create as great an uproar, as poor Paddy onsidcrs he hus enough of taxes already to pay. withut mulcting him with more. How the present state f things will end. appears to be a mystery to all; hut, eeidedly. Sir Robert Peel's plan appears to give genoil satisfaction. That wily statesman hus taken great ains to win the hearts of the Irish, for, no doubt, his wn purposes. At present, however, no opinion cun e well formed ou the different proposed measuresno party thinks one way. and another party another, leanwhile, however, the people arc starving, and dostiution prevails to a terrific extent; but if something Is t soon done, emigration and death will soon depopuite the land. Dr. Marshall, R. C. Archbishop of Tuam. lins pubshed a letter, detailing the miseries which the people f his diocese are undergoing, and calling upon the ilnistry to resign their trust into the hands of tliuir overeign. llis Grace and Dr. Denrir, R. C. Bishop of Iromore uud Connor, have been spoken of us sucesBOrs to the late Dr. Crolly in thu Primacy; but reort now names Dr. Russell, one of the professors of laynooth College, as the probable new Primate. The ate Dr. Croily's funeral was attended by several digniaries of the Established Church und a numerous ctinue of admirers of tlio lute Archbishop, of all denoui nations. The Commissioners of the .Metropolitan Police, DubIn, have just issued their statistical returns for last 'ear, an extract or two from which may not be unnteresting to the majority of your renders.

The exhibition was in a very large scale, the largest, iudeed, ot any which las been hitherto. It Is pleasing to state that it is the ipinlon of the judges that good breeding and judicious realincnt, in most cases, distinguished the different ireeds, the-specimens of which displayed first rate cx elleuec, and an improvement is discernible since the receding exhibition. By a return of the Irish Board if Work, the sum applied for by the land proprietors to te expended under the land improvement act, from !,029 individuals, is ?3,051,825 10s. 7d.; of these, .437 applications have been granted, amounting to Cl ,170,480. It is gratifying in the extreme to learn from accounts eceived that the present crops are better, and display nuch better management than heretofore ; consc[ucntly great hopes are entertained of the barest, as an abundant return would go fur towurds storing the now exhausted means of the country. The breadth of potato planted is very great; false accounts have been propagated, stating that the blight lad actually appeared; hut it has since become known bat no foundation whatever existed for the report. Our Paris Correspondence. Paris, April 19, 1849. The Bourtt and Money Market. The high prices to which the Ave per cents hnrc 10 rapidly attained, appear to have put a stop to spccuation, for business has been at a complete stand still bis week. The bolls have made many attempts to pass 10, but this quotation has only been reached for acount. Stock thrown on tho market has always topped the ascensional movement, after 89.50. Stock wqp constantly offered, so that speculators were cornidled to keep near the cash prices. It is, however, a remarkable fact, that the 5 per cents, after having tried Fruitlessly to got beyond 90, should not have pursued a retrograde movement, and that there should have been is much resistance to a decline below 89 as to a rise above it. It follows, hence, that the fluctuations of the whole week have been confined within these limits, knd that prices have remained constantly looking to a greater fluctuation, which has not yet taken place. It s not. however, probable, that such a state of things trill be prolonged long after the end of tho month, or ftt all events beyond the period when tho results of the flections will be pretty certainly anticipated There is a strong body of bulls, but they cannot find speculators disposed to risk transactions, so that they will find it diUtcult to maintain prices until the settlement, If stock conlinuo to be offered It Is supposed that the holders of stock who have given n general order to sell tt 90 franc*. would withdraw them if prices rose above 00, with anything like a tendency to remain stationary. Nothing, then, would prevent forcing up prices; at least this is the opinion of the bulls, and the principle on which they aro acting. The difficulty now, therefore. is to get the control of the market for cash, which Is the obstacle to the rise. The fate of the settlement must depend on the Issue of the struggle In which the bulls are now engaged with the cash market. The difficulty of dealing with the & per cents., from this cause, has driven many speculators into the 3 per eents., the coupon of which will be detached In six weeks, and the rise would probably have been greater, on this latter stock, but for tho probability of a new emission of 3 per cents, for the indemuity of the colonies. Bank Shares are stationary. Quotations have but little changed since the last weekly balance sheet, which, however, was not very favorable. Discounts h?N' again fallen, and. what Is remarkable, is. that the efferent accounts have also diminished. This is more surprising, since the partial revival of commerce is now au admitted fact; and, at this moment, there is much activity in many branches of industry. As to other Securities, there is uothiDg worthy of note. I send you the prices for the week 3 prr On/#. C/?. 6)>r. Ct. Ia)>in. Bk. Shi. April 12 57 2.1 fjj (KJ ? 2415 1 3 57 25 SO.

The plenipotentiaries subsequently occupied themselves with the means of execution, aud with the part which each of the States should take therein. No definite solution was come to up to the departure of the packet boat. Our correspondent causes us to fear that tho part taken by France has not responded to what the Pope was entitled to expect from the eldest daughter of the church. Letters from Florence of the 10th inst., state that a French steamer from Uncta had landed the secretary of the French legation at Rome at ('ivita Vecchla, and tliut he had immediately left for the capital. He was said to be the bearer of the ultimatum ot the foreign powers for there-establishment of tho Hope. It appears that a simultaneous movement has been arranged between the powers; the French were to occupy Oivitu Vecchla and Aneona; the Austrians. Ferrara; the Neapolitans, the frontier. On the arrival of the steamer from Oaeta, another steamer was immediately despatched to Toulon, with orders, it was said, to embark the expeditionary force. Civita Vecchia was being fortified. Letters from Rome, of the 3d. state that a popular demonstration took place that day in favor of M. Mazzini. in tlie (Mm of which thegmi ral cry was " Long live the Red Republic !" The Potiliro of Rome, of the 7tli. states that tho government of the republic has intercepted some important correspondence coming from (iaetu. and lirwteil ti.

The rest are shortly expected. Venire. In the sit tint; of the Venetian Assembly of the 2d, the followlug decree was passed:?"The Assembly of Representatives of the State of Venice, in the name of God and the people, unanimously decree as follows:? Venice shall resist the Austrian at every cost. For this purpose President Maniu is invested with unlimited powers." The War In Sicily?Surrender of Catania and Syracuse. On the 5th lilt., Catania was bombarded by the Neapolitan squadron. The following morning a simultaneous Hltuek was made by sea and land. The Swiss, to the number of 2.501), led the van. and were supported by two regiments of cavalry, and followed by an army of 10,000. with forty pieces of cannon. After a brief but obstinate resistance, the Catanase were overpowered, and the troops of Ferdinand entered the eity. which then became a real Held of battle As the troops advanced, the resistance became more obstinate. The assailants were tired on from wiudows, house-tops, and barricades. On the following morning, the greater part of the principal inhabitants and the garrison, abandoned the eity and tied to the mouutuins. Filangieri has given up the city to sack and tire. The soldiers were prowling about, plundering houses, violating women, and stabbing all who oppose them Immediately the Neapolitan forces eauiu in sight of Syracuse, the inhabitants opened the gates, rang the bells, and shouted ' Viva Ferdinando!" pulled down the Sicilian color, and expressed an entire submission. Conditions will again be offered to the provisional government, and If rejected, Palermo will be plundered and burned. Tlic Reaction at Florence. The French government received on Tuesday the following telegraphic despatch, dutud Marseilles, 16th inst., nine o'clock, A. M. ' tux MINISTER Of fRANCE TO TUX MINISTER foil fOREIGN arraiat. Florence. April 12. "A reaction In favor of the Grand Duke has taken place at Florence The whole population pronounced with enthusiasm. M. Guerazzl is kept a prisoner in his house. The Assembly is dissolved. A deputation lias proceeded to Gaeta." This news is doubtless prematagc; it is not confirm. ed by later accounts. The republican troops on the Neapolitan frontier are to be concentrated at Tcrui, under the orders of Gen. Ferrari. They are said to uinount to about 40,000 men. The AVnr In Hunjgary?THe Successes of the lluiurniTaiis. The last news from Hungary is to the effect that matters remain just as tlioy were before. Tke Hungarian army Lave taken up positions on the Rakosh plain, under the walls of Pesth. and offered battle to the Austrian*, who stand prepared to defend their possession of the Hungarian capital. Prince Windischgratz, warned by his late mishaps, has declined accepting the battle, and it is sincerely hoped at Vienna that he will escape being forced to enter into an engagement. The left wing of his army, under special command, stands at Waitzen ; the centre, under General Schliek, is at Czinkota, a village on the road from Pesth to Godollo; and the right wing, under Baron Jellaehich, extends across the railroad line towards Alberti and Czegled. The heroic Ban was ut one time given up as lost, and his reappearance has caused great joy at head quarters. The Magyars have again taken Saint Tomas. which was last year so obstinately defended by the Servians. The Servian Patriarch has been lcrced to fly from Beeskerek to Panesora. The command of the besieging army of Comorn, which has lately been in a state of mutiny, us most troops arc when unsuccessful, has been entrusted to General Wohlgemuth. The Hrrslau Zeitunf gives the following connected account of the late movements of the Austrian and Hungarian armies. It appears that the Imperial army, having received considerable reinforcements from Austria Proper, took up its position eastward from Pesth, extending from Waitzen and Godollo to Hatraw and Czegled. The left wing was commanded by General Schlick, who took up his quarters at Waitzen, while the bulk of the army stood at Hutraw, commanded by Wlndischgratz, and the right wing, under Baron Jellaehich, occupied Czegled and the environs of that plaee. The Magyar army, commanded by General Dembinskl, had crossed the river Thelss, and advanced to within nine miles from Pesth. Dcmblnski first engaged the Bnn of Croatia at Czegled, and enticed him|from his post by the retreat of a lesser number of troops than the Ban had, and induced him to follow the tlyiug Hungarians deeper into the country than he ought to have done. Baron Jellaehich wastliuscut off from the army of Prince Windischgratz. and the only thingwhich he now can do is to proceed further to the south to assist the Servians. On the 4th of April the Hungarians made a simultaneous attack upon tho Austrian hcudquarters at Hatraw, and upon tho left wing under General Schlick. The two armies tried their strength against each other in a pitched battle, and the combat lasted the whole day. Tho Austrian centre was pressed back to the very walls of Pesth. As for the left wing of their army, there are no positive accounts of how they fared, hut it is not unlikely that they, too. shared the fate of Baron Jellaehich?that they were deluded by a retreat of their enemies and cut off. The hopes which Prince Windischgratz lias of them cannot be very sanguine, for the preparations which were making at Pesth on the 5th and 6th instant, show that no less t linn a general retreat to the right bank of the Danube is in contt mplatlou. The Prince's orders to fortify tho city of Buda against an attack from Pesth, are peremptory. The houses next tho river and near the suspension bridge are being evacuated by the inhabitants and occupied by soldiers ; the windows of those houses have barricades of sand-sacks ; the steamers arc constantly kept with their steam up, so that they may be ready to start at a moment's ubticc; and a number of wagons laden with military stores and wounded soldiers are continually crossing the suspension bridge. The Viennese arc at present occupied by a rumor, and to all appearunce a well founded one, of Count Stadion. one of the first men of the Austrian cabinet, having tendered his resignation. This step of the noble Count was, it is stated, caused by his disgust at tho manner in which the Hungarian affairs are managed. In proportion as the dangers of tho Hungarian war become more imminent, does public and official opinion in Austria condemn the policy which entrusted the command of the army to Prince W'indiscligratz, and which, in spite of his reverses, continues to uphold him in his position. Kossuth is with the Magyar forces. All accounts agree in asserting that the Magyar troops are very numerous, well armed and accoutred, and that they fight like fanatics We have since received advices that Trineo Windiscligratz has resigned the supreme command iu Hungary. and General Welden has succeeded him. We have also received Vienna advices of the 15th ult., affording positive information of the occupation of the important position of Waitzcn by the Hungarians. The details of this action, as given by the German papers, are to the effect, tbat Prince Windiscbgratz, at the head of his best regiments, opposed the progress of the Hungarians in the direction of Comorn. and that he Was bucked by the corps of Got/and Jaolonowski. A fierce engagement ensued, in which fho superior tactics of the Magyars proved irresistible. General Got* and many of his officers fell while fighting in the streets of tlie city of Waitzcn. The imperial troops were driven bark and partly routed. The siege of Comorn had been stopped in consequence, and part of tho imperial aruiy besieging that fortress has marched to ii It/en to the rescue of General Hambcrg, who still attempts to stop the progress of the Magyars from Wait/en to Comorn 1 he garrison of that fortress lias, meanwhile, made a sally upon the remaining Austrian*, and carried off part of their heavy artillery. Such are tlie statements of the Austrian press, and of tho correspondents of the German papers. If we are to believe them there is nothing to prevent tlie Hungarian general Georgey. from communicating with the garrison of Comorn; and, if the rumor prove true, of General Denibfnski having crossed the Danube, and led his Irooiis to Vt elsfeuburg nothing is left to the imperialists but to retire to liaub. for neither Pcsth nor lluda ran be held against a superior force, i '1 he Hungarian revolution is becoming daily more and more the base on which to build a Polish one; in fact, at I life moment its leaders are almost as much Poll-h a- Hungarian it Is reported that 'JO 11(10 Kital signs have i-atered Transylvania and that JO.U'KI more ; are prepared to follow if necessary Imfoitant JJ?'< IhIoii of the Frankfort Assembly.

At the conference of the German plenipotentiaries ut Frankfort on the 14th ult.. the central miuistry expressed their determination to uphold and promulgate the constitution as voted by the National Assembly. The plenipotentiaries of twenty-eight German govenments agreed on and signed a reply to the Prussian note of the 4th of April, by which they and the governments they represent assent to an uneonditional acceptance of the constitution of the German empire as voted l>y the parliament, and to the hereditary supremacy being conferred on tlio king of Prussia. The whole of the German States have thus agreed; the German kingdoms alone hold buck. No one doubts ut Frankfort but that the plenipotentiary of Saxony will soon sign the joint declaration of the German governments. Several of the Austrian members of the National Assembly have already left Frankfort, in obedience to the order of their government. The Progress of the Schlemlg War, The Chamber of Commerce ut llumburg had published the following notice: ? Agreeably to n notification from II. B. M. Oonsul-Geuoral of this day, the Commodore of the Danish navy in the North Sea, lias given the official notice, that from euuriso of this day (12to April) the blockade of the libs, Wesor, a ud Jah da has commenced: thut neutral vessels, however, now lying in the norts of the blockaded rivera, after having ascer month; a* well as that, also, after that ilatc, the steamers with theKuyal llritish Malls ahull pass, |>roviiled that only the post-office letter-bags and passengers are on hoard. Since the Htli ult., nothing of the least military importance hud taken place in the Suudcwitt. The tierman advanced posts are at Nudel, where the Danes are in possession of tlio entrenchments, but their principal forces have retired to Alsen. The German troops and the Schleswig-Holstoincr* are now on the Jutland frontier. Considerable reinforcements of troops front the interior of Germany continue to pass through this city and Altona, for the Duchies. Hamburg letters and papers contain some further particulars of the engagement at Kckcruforde, in which the loss of human life is asserted to have been very great, though no positive statement of the number of the Danes missing has come to hand. Of prisoners there are no less than 1.050 officers, sailors, and marines. Accounts from Copenhagen suy that the Duuisit ministry are dcterined to use all available mcuus in their power to make up fertile Kckcruforde disaster. On the 13th the important intreuelimeuts on the Duppclcr heights were stormed. From 4>,'h. to 0 '4it., A. M.the Germans played upon them witli their light field-pieces ; the Danes replied both with heavy and light artillery. The Dunbli superiority in weight of metal exposed our troops to considerable loss. About 10 A. M.. two columns of Uavarians and Saxons were formed to assault the heights. They moved rapidly and steadily up the steepand broken ascent, the summit of which was crowned with breastworks and cannon. Notwithstanding tlio ineessunt firing made lanes through their ranks they carried their point. A xutnber ot prisoners were made, and the captured cannon were turned against the cncmy'sships in the liny of Alsen. and tlulr intrenelimcuts on the island. The retreat of the Danes was effected in utter disorder The Danes and their conquerors rolled in one confused mass towurds the bridge of boats which counucts Alsen wit,it the main. To prevent Alsen being also carried by storm, the Dunes tired upon their own troops. This occasioned the taking of u greater number of prisoners by the victors, hut added considerably to the loss by killed and wounded on both sides. When we take into account that the combined German and Schloswig-Holstrin troops did not exceed 45.000 men, and the Danes posted in the strong position on the Dttppeler heights numbered 40,000, tlie affair must be admitted to be highly rrcditublc to the former General Bonin, who is further north with 20.000 Schleswig-Holsteiners. endeavored, but in vain, two successive days to induce the Danes to give bint battle near Holding. Affairs In Prussia. The first distinct answer to the requisition issued by Prussia to the governments of Germany has been given by Austria. It is a total refusal to join in the conference of states asked for by Prussia, and a denial of the right ot the Frankfort Assembly to elect an emperor at all; and it declares that that body, having contemplated its task of drawing up the scheme of a constitution, has, at lust, openly declared. The answers of the other large powers are still waited for. The tone of the various German journals is gloomy and desponding They consider the refusal of the king as fatal to the best form of the German unity, and fear that it will give an impulse to the democratic movement. The position of the King of Prussia is unparalleled. If he Lolas firm to his refusal of an imperial crown, he is menaced with a republic. The government have seized another occasion to evince their unti-tierniau policy. They have refused to recognise a deputation of the Sclilcswig-ilolstein Assembly, who arrived at Berlin to express the satisfaction of the Duchies at the imperial election haviug fallen on the King of Prussia. After the delegates from Schlcsnig had wuited a couple of days for an answer from Count Arnim to their application for an audicuco with his Majesty, they were told by the minister of Foreign A Hairs that the King could not receive the deputation us such, but would be happy to give them audience as private individuals, and see them at dinner. The deputation wroto at once in answer to Count Arnim declining to divest themselves of their official character by being presented to the King in a privute capacity ; and left Berlin to return to Kchleswig. The central committee has decided by a majority of four against three in favor of Waldcck's motion for the suspension of the state of siege. Turkey and Russia. The Cologne Gazelle publishes a letter from Jassy, of the 26th of March, which states that the relations between the Russians and the Turks were becoming every day more hostile. The Turks appeared to expect a war. According to a letter from Constantinople, in the Jlugeburg Gazette, the populations of Turkey were presenting themselves to the recruiting officers with unaccustomed zeal, their being districts which offered to supply double the contingent demanded. At Bucharest there were almost every duy collisions between the Russian and Turkish soldiers, and the animosity even extended to the superior officers. On the other hand, the Russians were arming with vigor. Their fbrotu In the Dnnubian principalities amount to V7.000 men. and a Vienna journal says that the Russian minister had demanded from the Porte that the period fixed for the evacuation of the principalities by the Russians should be prorogued to tb? 1st of May, A ukase of the Emperor of Russia, dated tlio 31st of March, orders the ordinary levy of troops for 1849 in the western government. The operation is to be terminated by 13tli June. Eight men are to bo taken in every 1,000 inhabitants. The ukase says that the Emperor lias resolved, on account of present circumstance*, to maintain a largo portion of the ainiy on a war footing. Annirn ill augypt?immiii in nmi ncan?. It is stated from Alexandria. under date the 7th of April, that Abbas Pacha has given some hopes that when the barrage of the Silo and other great works at present in rourso of construction are eonipletcd, he will think of the railroad between < utro and Sue*; but French influence is still active agatust it The Viceroy's finances nrc in a eery low state, and the pay of the troops is more than twelve months in arrear. Swarms of locusts have made their appearance in some parts of the upper country and ttic Delta; but tile greater portion of the cro|>* being ripe, not much damage is feared. In the upper country, however, there Is a scnrcity of grain. The t'nited States frigate Constitution had sailed for Mnlta. and the native soldiers and water-carriers who had insulted the boat's crew were still unpunished, notwithstanding the remonstrances of the American Consul. In consequence of the last advices from Knglatid, crops had fallen. Stocks were getting short, hut the new produce would soon come in. Freights' were unprecedentodly low The exchange ou London wus 08,', piastres per pound sterling. Affairs In India?The Victory or Goojrrnt. Despatches in advance of the overland mail, which left Bombay on the 17th, have been received by express from Marseilles. They contain full particulars of the decisive victory achieved over the 8ikhs on the 21st of February last, a brief announcement of which arrived by the last mail. On this occasion, no doubt can be entertained of the decisive character of the succesi, the enemy having been completely routed, with the loss of his guns, ammunition, and camp equipage. I.ord (tough's army, which amounted to nearly 26.000 men, with 100 guns, encamped on the 20th, in order of battle, within four miles of the enemy, whose force was estimated at 00 000 men. with 00 guns. They occupiod the ground around the village ofGoojerat, in a position us well chosen as the nature of the country permitted. The British army moved to the attack early on the morning of the 21?t. in a line nearly three miles from right to left. The action began with a heavy cannonade. in which the artillery did such execution, that the enemy's guns were speedily silenced. The infantry then advanced, driving the Sikhs before them in the utmost confusion The cavalry division was sent in pursuit, and hung upon the rear of the Hying enemy until night prevented further operations. Of the 60 guns wb'eh the Sikhs brought into action. 63 were raptured, i in an enormous amount of ammunition; and the rest have, doubtless, been since taken by the corps detached in pursuit. The British army has to lament Hve officers and 02 men killed, nnd 24 officers and 682 men wounded. On the day after the action.

India generally was tranquil and contented Sclnde was free from any apprehension cither of rebellion or foreign attack, and the garrison left at Mooltau remained unmolested. It was said that Lord (lough had sent in his resignation. No decision had. it was understood, been arrived ut as to the annexation of the I'unjaub. Labium. Advices from this colony extend to the 25th of February Much of the sickness had abated, and the provailing ague had not assumed a serious type.

The Frriu h Republic?The Flight of Several Sorlullat*. The calculations of the Monarchical party are that not less than tiou partisans of the Monarchy, including in that term Legitimists, Orlcauists. and Bonapurtists, are likely to be returned to the legislative chamber; and of the Republican Party only 150. The Socialists, who will very probably be confined to Paris, or nearly SO. declare thev will return IS member* out nf the "28 that represent tfie capital Much sensation was excited In Paris on Sunday, and continued the whole of the day. in consequence of seine person or persona having the night previous cut down the tree of liberty in tin- Place dc la Croix Rouge, where aix striwts mitt. The tree was Completely sawed through at the root, and lay on the ground. The police made the moat 'irtivo exertions to discover the person who did tile act, but in vain. The only reparatiou that eould be made under the circumstances wus made, namely, the planting of another tree, by order of the mayor, on the same spot, and decorating it with immortelles and tri-colorcd ribbons. Information was received ihat an i mmle had been calculated on in consequence; but bodies of police bad been from uu early hour stationed in every part of the quarter to suppress the first attempt that might be made, and nothing occurred. A hostile meeting took place on the 14tli, at 5 in the evening, between M. I.edru-Kolliu and M. Deujoy, near the Pont doNouilly. The parties were placud at twenty paces distance. M. I.edru llollin fired, but the pistol of.M. Deujoy hung fire. The seconds then interposed. Tlie National announces that the Garde Mobile has again been redueed front twelve battalions to six. M. Duclicne. tlie editor of the journal Lt Peuplt, whs convicted by default before the court of assizes of Paris on Friday, of having published several seditious libels, on the filli. Oth. and 11th of March, calculated to excite hatred and contempt against the government of tlie republic. He was sentenced to five years' imprisonment. and to pay a fine of ti.OOOf. The moment his sentence of imprisonment aud fine wuh about to be confirmed in the superior court, it was intimated to him that the avenues'of the Palais de Justice were filled with policemen, who were waiting to arrest him in virtue of Ills previous condemnation for a similar offence, as it was for a second one thut he has been just tried. Ills advocate proved a friend to hiin to the last ; for he lent him his cup and gown, and iu this costume M. Duclicne proceeded unconcernedly through the files of the police aud scrstnti dt villt, who, iustead ol recognising the criminal tliey were wuiting to seize, rcspectlully made way for the presumed advocate. Duclicne has not been heard of sluco ; aud it is suplu,iii?l Ik. in M. llnspuil, the nephew of the Bourses convict, who administered such a coup <ir point; to M. I'oiut in the National Assembly the other day, lias also fled. Of liis conviction before the police correctionnelle there could not have been the slightest doubt, as it was evident the outrage had bcou inflicted on uecount of the important evidence given by M. Toint during the Bourges trial, and w hich led to the conviction of ltaapail uiu/e. The maximum penalty for an assault on such grounds is five years' imprisonment. When the hulssier went to his lodgings to serve a warrant, he wus informed that " M. Kuspail had gone on an excursion for some days." M. I'roudhon has addressed from his place of retreat, a letter, in which he resigns the directorship of the Bank of the reoplo, in consequence of his recent condemnation by tne court of assizes. The legal and peaceful revolution he contemplated in society by means of that institution would, he is afraid, require ten years. He, however, hopes to invent some more expeditious plan. He then recommends his adherents not to resort to any other arms than tltOM of discussion. ' No eincutcs," he cries, ' no clubs, no banquets; the press alone, ami then the ballot." According to the statutes, the bank wus not to commence operations until the capital should amount to 50.000 francs. The shares paid upon the Nth instant only produced 17,093 francs, and the expenses are H.H7 francs. Appic.ndrd to M. Proudhon's letter is a Ucclnlatiou signi'd by his partners, announcing their intention to continue his undertaking, which they place under the patronage of the democratic and socialist party. Seals have been affixed. by order of the authorities, on the offices of M, Proudhon's bank; and several charges of fraud are to be brought against M. I'roudhon before the police correctionnelle. for he has deducted from the money raised for his bank nearly onehalf for expenses, which by law he alone is bound to hear, that company not having been constituted. M. Proiulhon has addressed a letter of seven columns to file I'rujilr. to >indiontr himself against tbetklHItf having embezzled f 8.000 of the f 17.00'J subscribed to winds the rctuhli'-hincnt of the Bank of the People. He then proceeds to explain the principle on which that bunk was to operate; and to prnclaim its success infallible, if he were not pursued by the hatred of M. Leon Kuuehcr, and the indefatigable persecution of the government. M. [leleeluze, editor of I,a l!ipiil.lii/uf Dcmocraliaut et Soeiale, is said to Lave also fled, lie was Ledru Hollin's famous commissary, and it was be who organized the expedition to Kisquons-Tout. The JUoniteur contains a circular from the Minister of Public Instruction to the directors of academies, remonstrating against the introduction of extraneous, meaning thereby politieal. topics, during the conferences that have been instituted tor the purpose of enlightening <ach other in their professional duties. The Minister of the Interior bas addressed a circular to the prefects, recommending them to exerciUS much caution with respect to the placards affixed on the wails in the towns, and that they shall prevent all such as have reference to politieal events, with the exception of those sanctioned by authority. The object is to provent in the approaching elections the scuudalous abuses committed last April and May. The British Diplomatic Mediation. In the House of Commons, on the 19th ult., Mr. Illswai.i.i wished to make an inquiry respecting the three mediations which, before the Kuslur recess, her Majesty's government announced they had undertaken. but which, after the Luster recess, hud assumed the form of three blockades. (A laugh.) He wished to know whether the government were prepared to lay on the table any documents which might expluin this strange metamorphosis (a laugh), and whether, and when, the house might expert to receive those Sicilian papers, w hich ought already to he in the hands of members .' He wished to inquire, secondly, whethur tiicre was any objection to lay on the table, as soon as possible, all the papers relative to the affairs of Denmark htiu xin- LiuriiK'h oxacmcswig nun iioisicin; iiuu. tuiruly. whether there was any objection to lay on the table the records of the < ongresit of Brussels. (A laugh ) Lord J. Rlsskll.?With respect to thu throe question* put by the lion, gentleman. I luive to stute, first, with regard to Sicily, that the mediation between the King of the Two Sicilies and the Sicilians has come to an end, and that the papers connected with this subject arc now preparing, and will be laid on the table of this house in a few days. With regard to the secoud subject mentioned by thehon. gentleman, the negotiations with Denmark and the German Kmplre. 1 mav statethat. as communications are still going on. both with Denmark and the German Courts, it is not advisable to lay on the table the papers relative to that nrgotlatioc at the present moment. With regard to the third question, the lion, member is, of course, fully aware that the Austrian plenipotentiary was never named. Although it was promised several months, that promise was never fulfilled. The mislaid Danish despatch. Mr. Hi-Mr. wished to know whether the rumor wa correct which generally prevailed, to the effect that a messenger arrived on the 26th March from Copenhagen, with a despatch of importance for the noble lord the Secretary for Foreign Affairs, which despatch, it win alleged, remained unanswered and unattended to until too Tate to prevent the hostilities which afterward took place ' He would put this question to-morrow If the noble lord preferred to have notice of It. but lie thought the question was one that ought to he put. In order that the house might know whether any blame attached to the noble lord or not in respect to thu rumor. (Uear, hear.) Lord*ton.?I may as well answer the question now as to-morrow The facts are these:?After the Danish government announced the armistice, eouimunientlons took place between Her Majesty's government and the two parties to the dispute, with a view to endeuvoring to see whether it was not still possible to bring about a friendly understanding, and I proposed, on the llllh of March, a protocol to these parties, in the hope that they might be brought to agree to it On tliu 2Cth ol March the Danish Minister received from his court an amended version of this Instrument, to which the Danish government said they agreed, hut they required that the con?ent of tlu- German Plenipotentiary should be immediately given to that Instrument In the form in which they sent it, and they also desired that it sheaM kv sent buck to thein before the 2bth of March, In order that they might know whether they were to begin hostilities again, as they had aiinouneed. on the 2d of April. 1 he note of the Danish Minister, communieating this to nie was sent on the 2flth of March; It was not made in the usual official way, and it was, by accident, mislaid; und It was not until Thursday, the 2l?1h of March. Instead of Tuesday, the 27th, that I was able to communicate the contents to the Prussian Minister, who was the representative of thu central powi r. Hut the proposal was one which It was quite out ot the power of iliat representative to aceeilo to, and it whs peifectly immaterial with rcsfiect to the result. whether the communication were made to hint on the Tuesday or on the Thursday. The proposal was < no w lilch It was quite inconsistent with Ills Inst rue. tlons to accept and therefore bis answer would have been the same on one day as it would have been -in the oilier, namely, that he oould not agree to it. Rt SMA AND Tt'RKEY. Mr C. Ansrrv.? Had the noble lord any information ironi ( onstanUnople relative to the alleged demand by Russia upon the 1 orte as to the removal of all Turkish I troops frmn Moldavia and Wallochia, under the threat s [ERA1 that if the demand were not complied with the Ilussiau I' Minister would apply for his passport ' Lord PtLMearrn* said, that he was warranted instat- I Ing that there had not been any such communication; und there was every reason to believe the report unfounded. He had only further to add, that the prepenee of Turkish troops in Moldavia had been invited oy nussin. iiuu mat a military omeer of great eminence. t General Grave.
