Ail riot has induct <1 many of our mot* Xrienced, wWst and patriotic statesmen to ooo ' tbe creation of such an irresponsible and uu MMtitutional force, as tbe police force of late . has proved itself to be injurious to the peace iu?d well-being of society. Indeed, time is serving to establish a universal conviction that they may ?aly too readily employed for the execution of the de signs of a blue beard or a Croiu well. These Hyde Park riots, the occasion wUab called thetn forth, and the molts which attended them are sad commen taries upon the boasted freedom, the wisdom of her senators, and the expanding nature ot Britain s con stitution. Talk of liquor riots hi America, of indig nation meetings in tltu United Suites, or ot political t gatherings throughout the Union? they are but a bagatelle when compared to the Sanaay trading demonstration which took place within & very Aort distance of tbe royal palace, and that too on a Lord's day. Tlie evidence collected by the Commis sioners during the week will satisfy you of the cor *e?tness of your correspondence as to polioe despo tism in England. The cheap newspaper mania still continues ? both parties, those having an interest in things as they were, and the advocates of the new sys tem, continue to hammer away at each other with extraordinary steal. The monopolists resort to all sorts of clap trap arguments, some of them pressing hrto their service methodistical spouters, whose effu sions in the cause are only eqnalled by their "rant ing" discourses on theology. Such characters don't ??derstand the subject; tney twist aud twine, dis tort and misapply statistics thereon as they do texts ?f Scripture in their bungling exhortations of a Sab bath evening. Despite of every means which can be taken by the party, from the Timet dowu to the lowest obscure high priced paper, their efforts are of ?o avail. Tbe peop c have cot the taste of cheap journals, already tney And that cheapness will not deteriorate the quality, and that it is compatible with a penny daily journal to compete in talent and ability with a four penny diurnal print. The ex ample of America, and the prosperous career of the Mwv York Herald in particular, has stimulated ?any parties on this side tnc Atlantic to go ahead to providing good, cheap and honest newspapers.

Prepara tion a at the English Embassy ? The Aztec Chil dren at One of Prince Napoleon '? Receptions at tk* Palais Royal? Rachel at the Theatre Fran msis ? Effect * of Ristori "? Rivalry?

If America is only half as wearied with this Eastern w.t?-as through tracks of disease aud blood it drags Ite slow length along ? as every soul I encounter in ttiis fair and goodly city is ? she will not be sorry to wad in the columns of the Herald a letter which does not so much as mention the subject, farther ta&n to say that the spirit of dissatisfaction in rela tion to everything concerning it is greatly in creased, and increasing. fcThe army itself? where II sbooid be popular, if anywhere ? is sick of the wiy name of it. Yon cannot meet an officer who Aire open his month who does not speak of it with bathing; and it is difficult to believe that such a temper oan exist without spreading its fermentation wider and wides. The Parliamentary war in England excites far Bwre interest than that waging in the Crimea; and seeing that they are deprived of the sight of similar gladiatorial feats in their own Senate, the French Me disposed to take a malicious pleasure in the surges to and fro of that Parliamentary sea across the Channel, on which such noble ministerial vessels one after another become shipwrecked, ? and where the British Carthage herself ofteu seems en the point of foundering. They seize with avidity every phrase, 6r word, or letter, which im fftes the possibility of a future rupture. I do not go so for as to say that they desire such a consumma tion; but in accepting the contingency as ever so slightly hinted at by unything resembling political Mlborily in England, they do but follow out the eeret thought which, in full vitality, lies buried in tbe bosom of the French mind. My God ! if the trV-color were planted at Boulogne for the army of England, instead of at Marseilles for that ungenlol ?rimea, big with another winter's horrors, how would the heart of every son of France leap into his i broat! But we tread on tender ground. The en tente cord tale is still a living reality, and all France * ikon tip toe to welcome the sovereign of Creat Brr a?o within ber borders. What is the exact nature of the hospitable prepa mtion* In process, is still, for mmo purpose or other, a profound secret. Indistinct glimmerings of a su* pert fHt at Versailles are perceptible. Workmen are busily lading down additional gas and water pipes; hut no signs of any of those ephemeral con Btmctiona with which French fitm are usually so yedolent, are perceptible; though it is said that illu minations of surpassing magnificence are to take flaee. In the Champ de Mars the citizens of Paris are to be gratified with that which most of all de late their hearts? -a fta d' artifice, of unusual splendor and ingenuity; ? but Paris proper, the un happy beast of burden, who for so many centurics has submitted patiently to have her loins and reins mrely put upon and belabored, while -the tlallic heart drank, danced, feasted and flirted, is for once to be left in peace. Her bowels shall not he pierced with cruel flag-staffe; plastered images shall not rixmt their mushroom triumphs to the disparagement ?f her native beauty; and painted arches, epheme ral flowers, impromptu fountains, pigmy lamps, und mti.y chintz-covered wood-work shall not dishonor fee fair proportion of those architectural wonders which render her the queen paramount of tho world. At the Knglish embassy, as might be expected, Hie hive which of late has l>een so cruelly disturbed and alarmed by the recent fright ful attacks on the ministry, and which now breathes more freely in the pros|>ect of another six month's tenure, is busy torning out, house and home, In honor of the antici pated arrival of its Queen. Even the duties to Hea ven must give wa.v under such circumstances, and Ibe rhapel tloors are closed hermetically for three Pnndays, till, on the li'th of August, they once more ?pen, upon a disposition of seats and benches worthy the prayers of one who rules by right divine ! Somehow or other, in preparations such as ?hesc, one cannot help but feel tliut human nature, In this last part of the nineteenth century, Is still in the gall and woimwnod of Itarbarisiu. There m>ist he something wrong wheu such individual Idolatry is necessary to the government of mankind, and ex tends even to the house of prayer. Wo are, in fact, test where we were when, more than two centuries ago, the Spanish King said:? "Why all this to do about ? mere ceremony ?" "Your Majesty'* self," was the Minister's reply, "is bnt a ceremony !" But ?he star of wisdom is dimly seen across the far At lantic, and republican common sense light* up a heaeon on the heights and among the forests of America which will one day guide the kindred Mock of the mother country to a better estimation ?f the privileges of humsui.y. The palaces of St. Cloud and the KlysO are each, t is understood, to I* at the disilosition of the Queen; and the British Km Way, which is itself a palace superior to the Byafe, Will I# glowing %ith crimson and gold, as her Majesty's own private pn> perty, where ?he may at any time receive those whom she nay delight to honor. Th>- house for merly belonged to the F^nce^s Borgbewe, Kilter of Napoleon the Kirvt, and whs purchased by the l?ri lisn government after the events of iru, for ?30.000, as an MEfbwuadcrial residence. It contains a double set of magnificent reception rooms, one above and tlie other he low; and though of no Imposing exterior on the north side, facing the faubourg Ht. Honor*1, is very beautiful on the south, looking towards the Chamns Ehnmto, from which, however, it is separated by a garden of unusual ex tent and beauty for a town. An orangery runs round the palace, which presents three sales of a quadrangle, and the house altogether, both as to convenience, disposition and fitting up, i;' allowed to be the best in I'aris. The aml?as-<u<lor is obliged to retain some five and twenty servants, and though the allowance made him by government is ?g,?XMi per annum, independent of 'the furnished house, the mm is not sufficient for the extensive hospitality expected from him. Prince Napoleon held another reception in his apartments at the Palais Royal, on Saturday even ing; and to give an impulse to the sotr^. had the >Mtec children, who have lately returned ln>ra Eug land. Even princes mnst condescend to take a leaf out of Rarnum's book, and season palatial hospittV xy with the atWracioni of Turn Th>unb. [ VMfcaoi<*l le Rachel, aa If impatient ante the noB<?hut carping critic Um to which -he ha* of late been exposed, han in these last reprej-eiitatioHH, with which she has been favor ing the Parisian public, been fairiy soaring beyond herself Never, in her most halcyon days, in the zenith of her power and attraction, ha* she appeared Rraw h advantage an within these last few days. To obtain an entrance into the Theatre Fran sain, without having bespoken it weeks before, wan an impossibility; and, anxious to write y our readers a Tenable account of the effect this splendid tragedian was producing here, ere she traversed the Atlantic., 1 wrote a letter to M. Fould, the Minister of State, stating my connection with tbc Hkkald, and the object I had in view, and received at once a cour teous reply, informing me that my name had been infcrihf^m the list. What a charming thing it is to h^ffiffriend at court in the shape of a MiuLster of State ! On presenting my credentials at the theatre, I was not only admitted, but, I suppose as ' the representative ot the 60,000 copies of the [ Hkkali>'s circulation, was obsequiously handed to a i seat, where, in the midst of a crowd filling the building to the roof, I could see arid hear with all he facility of a man at his own fireside. M. Pierre Lebrun's " Marie Stuart" is a tra gedy eminently calculated to attract the sym pathies of a French audience. The relation ship which existed between the unfortunate Mary Queen of Scots, and the French dvnasty? her French education ? her Jtoman Catholic faith? or, as it is called here, her ancient faith, as contradistin guishid from the new and heretical one of her rival Elizabeth ? her superior beauty? her love-inspiring character? the tyrannical conduct of England, typi fied in the ruthless daught3r of the house of Tudor, all tend to give to give the play an interest apart, written as it is in the simple but elevated language ofLebrun; but with Rachael for the principal part, and straining every nerve to be at the Bummii or her reputation, it may easily tie conceived the interest is magnified a hundred fold. The Theatre Francais, at least, 1h common property, whatever be the state of the political atmosphere, and on Saturday night-, when 1 looked round on the representatives of many noble houses, whose high deeds will live forever in the pages of European history, and saw legitimatist, Orleanist, Bonapartists and republicans, all crowding together, banging as if spell-bound on each syllable | that diopjHMl from the mouth of this gifted actress, I could not help wishing that some political Rachel would arrive, and thus bind together the scattered renmante of this eminently greut people. Ra chel was great throughout Whether it was with Mortimer she conversed, or with Burleigh or I/cioes ter, or face to faco with Elizabeth, she held her auditors literally entranced as her rich mellow notes trilled on the words of the author. The English spectator forgets entirely it is a foreign tongue he hears, and remembers only that it is the voioc of an enchantress speaking as never woman spoke before, a language that all humanity may understand, and using gestures not less eloquent. for throughout it is the heart that is addressed; and whether Saxon or Gaul, there is but one tongue, one cha unci of commu nication, when this is the cose. I felt as 1 listened, comparatively few fears of Rachel's success in Ame rica. A people possessed of such stirring impulses as those which distinguish the inhabitants of the United States, will be as much affected by the tones of Rachel as by those of Grisi. Persiani, Crnvelli, or any other of the celebrated birds of song; and I for one, have no doubt of her triumphant pilgrimage throughout the land of the free. Bertie. Paris, July 25, 1835. The Paris Exhibition ? Grand Dinner to Prince Napoleon in the Jardin d'Hiven ? M. Vattemare'a Explanation of the Indifference Manifested by American MauuJ'acturers? Grand Industrial Spectacle ? The Machinery of the Exhibiton ? The Pavorama, fyc., tjre. On Monday last the Exhibition, following the good old Saxon custom of celebrating success by " a feast of fat things, of wine well drained from the lees," through the agency of its international jury invited Prince Napoleon to a sumptuous banquet at the Jar din d'Hivcr, in the splendid picturesque aalle of which five tables groaning with silver, and tastefully orna mented with flowers, surrounded by a cotojmny of three hundred and twenty guests, including some of i the most distinguished men of all nationB, received him as the first and chiefcst of all. Colonel Cox re presented America. After a speech from M. Dumas, foimerly Minister of Commerce and Agriculture, proposing the health of the Emperor, which elicited the most enthusiastic acclamations, the Marquis of Hertford gave the toast of the evening ? Honor to Princc Napoleon , whose energy and activity have sur mounted the countless difficulties which embarrassed the Exhibition at. its outset, and finally brought it through? a triumph and an enduring monument of the greatness of France, with whom his illustrious name was so closely associated. The reply of Prince Napoleon was chiefly remarl | able for its democratic spirit; I believe the first in stance that his imperial highness has publicly given of it since he ceased to be Prince of the Mountains. Speaking of the successful result of the exhibition, he said:? The Fi'rioust lesson which is attested by the success obtained, is to show the strength of an organized democracy. In Tact, we are a nation of democracy and equality by our habit*, onv constitutions, aud more particularly by our object. With ns the em ploye becomes! a minister; the workman, a manufac turer; the peasant, a landowner; the soldier, a gene ral; and the whole people crown themselves by rain ing to the throne a dynasty of it? own choice. U cannot be denied by the most carping of his enemies, that the l'rince has devoted himself, heart and soul, to bring this great work to a successful conclusion; anil to do so harwitlingly lent an ear to suggestions, however humble the source from which they came. 1 myself ventured to memorialize his highness with a petition that the rule as to affixing the price of each sirticle should lie more rigidly en forced, and that for the benefit of uninformed per sons like myself, some short '? explanatory notices should be appended to the various philosophical and mechanical apparatus -o abundantly exhi bited. With in a very few days, a notice to that effect appeared in the Monittvr, and though, for peculiar reasrns, the price is not so generally affixed as one would desire, a few lines of explanation arc now, to the inP iite benefit of the ignorant, uuiver ally attached, when such is necessary. The objection to annex the price is. that it in\itc* prejudicial comparison. For exam ple: an English silversmith would put ?18 a ?'20 to a silver teapot, whereas a French member of the trade might label one, to nil appearance as good, at half the sum ? the difference being where the undls reming public would Ik: slow to discover tt in the quality of the stiver, in the superiority of the manu facture, the nice and perfect finish, Ac ? all which would be manifest enough when pointed out, thotigh to a casual passer-by unobservablc. We arc ready at once, it is alleged, to give the price on inquiry, which inquiry at the same time furnishes ns with an opportunity of offering an explanation. There 1?, doubtless, some reason in this; at the same time the Exhibition is ho multitudinous, so collossal in its pro portions, that one has not always time to inquire; and 1 cannot help thinking that rutber than l>c pass ed by altogether, it would lie lietter to Incur even the risk of some misconception; besides, such disparity of price in similar articles would surely attract more minute inspection, and thus lead to a just appret ia tion of the more meritorious. A very excellent letter has been addressed by Mr. Alexander Vattemnre, commissioner to the exhibi tion for the States of New York, Virginia and South Carolina . to the Monitntr, explaining the cause of the comparatively few articles sent by America, lie says:? It must l* attributed, among other reasons, to their disappointment at the exhibition of Ijondutt. In ? the tinancial crisis which, for nearly a yea t, plunged ail the industrial States of the North into a sort of stupor, which prevented their thinking of anything but their own immediate snflfrriugs, and the failure of the late New York exhibition. II used, however, by their national amour proji. r, by their sentiments of afltotion towards France- in a word, by their desire to obtain the food opinion of their fellow citizens, profitiug by the few weeks which yet remained to them, they did at last resolutely un dertake the task. They reckoned that the federal government would help them in the transport and return of their products. ft had done so In 1 til; but in this they ?*< nj deceived, and, wlieu a> -o int is taken of all the facilities given by governments, on terra anna, and the necessity they felt of doing so, it may 1? well i < in el veil wllat difficulties w<mld lay in the way of a trarisatltintic country like Ame rica. exposed, all the difficulties Inciden tal to a foreign tongue. The letter, which I enclose you in nin*9o, then goes on to poiut out and cc ixcmt npon some <>f the articles which, hi spile of to many peculiar difficul ties, America bad sent. The number of visiters to the FpiaU Jcl'InUuitrte, ob Sowfcvy, at four aous cach, was 86,912, and to the Beau* Ado. 15,847, making ? total of 102, ISO. A r% portpreviilLs that the five franc day is to be reduced to two franc*. Indeed, some device must bo hit upon, tor at the longer price nobody will go, and on a nun day it in bo uncommon thing to see elegant equipa ges standing at the door, while their owners avail themselves of that amount for admittance which has been especially reduced for the working classes. No ?wonder the five franc ?cale on Friday fails. On the one franc day it if) very respectably film, but never iu the same proportion at) was witnessed in London, though the superiority of the French exhibition ia now established beyond a doubt The annexe, when the machinery is in constant operation, and which, as a practical exhibition of the ingenuity of man lor the comfort and well being of his species, is the moat unique and beautiful sight the world ever witnessed, is beginning to curry away the palm even from the palatial splendors of the panorama. Here a thousand manufactories of a thousand dif ferent articles are seen nnder one roof, all plying their avocations in a mauner and compass intelligible to the meanest capacity. Printing, lithography, engraving on .-tee I, spinning, weaving, cloth maKing, calico printing, luce making, every thing, in fact, tba> electricity, steam, or nu?P plication of forces, can effect, is there palpably dune before your eyes; intelligent agents are also* there patiently to explain the nature and property of these nttnitesmial wheel* they control, and their effect on he industrial market; and the most careless looker on cannot leave the spot without feeling his mirnl occupied by new ideas and u desire to return for mther improvement. A shaft half a mile in length, in the roof, sets the whole machinery in motion, and when all the thousand wheels begin to whiz round at once, the e fleet is at first literally confounding. It is now, however, so managed, that only a portion of the machines make their evolutions at the same time, so that the spectator may not be quite deafened and bewildered. A machine for making chocolate attracts an overwhelming crowd of spectators. The pate being placed in a species of funnel, the wheels begin to move and perform the following operations. They eject the pate in the form of a soft roll, and place it in an oblong tin, the bottom of which is ribbed into sectional divisions: they then set in mo tion a flat circular surface, holding on its border some twenty of these tins, which commences its operations by a slow tremulous motion, gradu ally moving round ; and by the time the p&te in the tin has made the prescribed tour, it is Bhaken out of its roll-like form, and becomes thin cake, completely filling it* receptacle. Each tin, as it ar rives, is by some mysterious agency shaken off on to a pivot, from which it is again displaced and handed up to an apparatus, which contrives, in the most laughable manner, to fold it up in clean paper, turn ing up the edges of the paper after the most Im proved fashion of perfect packing, and then, by a sudden lurch, to fling out two tongues of red not sealing wax, and hermetically seal the chocolate ready for exportation to the furthest ends of the earth. The ingenuity of the thing is admirable, though, perhups, it causes the philosopher to muse on the littleness and poverty of man's invention in comparison with that of the Divine Machinist, who, with those tiny fingers he has given to his creatures, enables them so readily to perforin what, after all, is but clumsily brought about by so great a weight of metal and complication of motive power. The panorama, sacred to the crown jewels, Anbus son carpets of peculiar rarity, tiobelin needle work, and Sevres porcelain, remains the same : and highly attractive as it is, would 1? still more so were the light from the roof more full. But the broad ring which surrounds the panorama every day increases its stock of wonderful products, and the whole is now grouped so artisti cally that wherever the eye tunis there are beauties which none but a limner can depict. Take as an example Neubergier's display of lamps, followed by a depot devoted to ornaments in cast iron. The hack ground is covered with carpeting of such sur parsing richness in design and color that no lan guage can convey it, assisted by luudscape-paper in medallions to imitate tableaux in curved gilded frames suspended against the wall, a species of paper which I shall have another occasion of reverting to. In front, rises a forest of lamps, effulgent with gold and beautiful painting, the forms of which, beside, are as various as they are chaste and classical. The visiter might verily believe him self in the palace of Aladdin. Then the statues and statuettes, of that group In cast iron, many of them painted to resemble marble, and by their sharp ness of outline and refinement of detail partaking rather of the chisel than the furnace! It is a cluster which would cast no indignity upon the museum at Versailles, so admirably is each article disposed in relation to the other; and yet it is only a set of cast rem figures intended for a market which cannot afford to buy marble or bronze. It is thus that tl.-: eal taste ol the French comes out. There is artistic design in everything; whereas the English manufac nrcr sets up his most elaborate workmanship as i hough he feared any one should accidentally sec it. Immediately beside this group is the colossal organ of Bt. Eustache. But my letter is already too long. Bertik. Paris, Jojy 26, 1?65. The European IVar the Tomb of Political and Military Rrjmtatums ?

No news from the seat of war, the belligerent parties being mucji in the position of two chess players who luive bronght the game to a state-mate; for until one or the other makes such a mistake ns renders the game alive again, perhaps the less we trouble ourselves about them the beter. The St. Petersburg letters lament bitterly the loss of Admi ral Machimoff, the hero of Si nope, who was great ly beloved by his Bailors, and whose peculiar quali ties for command are thought irreparable. It is in structive to remark, how, one after another, all the chief actors of this terrible dr-uia are removed from the scene, and give way to a frunh crop of agent* only itself perhaps to l?o laid low before even the tint fruits of this bloody harvest are gathered, it is not in the Crimea only that this occurs; the Eng lish parliamentary roil is Bwollon with the name.* of those who, having flung themselves into the fore front of the battle, are now civiljy dead; and such is the disgust in France, th it I only speak a well known fact iu asserting that hulf a dozen persons cannot meet together w ithout live of them uttering the bitterest complaints. The wont of it is, that, as in the case of individuals who have joined together in nn untucky enterprise, who afteiwards strive to mend the matter by turning against each otlier the weapons they have fashioned for exterior purposes so is it with nations; and there is iu France, and from what I see of private letters. 1 suspect in England, also, so imuh heart-burning, that despite the demolition of many of those par tition walls which interfere with the reciprocity of commerce ? despite the advent of the Queen of Eng land? the entente rortlialt suPers iu reputation, aud ntay one day have to bear the brunt of the Rossian failure. Thc?e debates in England on the Turkish loan, in which ho many home troths have been ut tered touching the proverbial uncertainty of all hu roan alliance*? the admiration, which not evfcn a state of war prevents the French from expressing, at the splendid resistance made by the Russians, and their popularity generully in their social intercourse with France? are, go where you will, the constant topic ( f con venation: and, as I have more than once hinted in thc-'c letters, if the Emperor Is the man of gmius hid rupid ( ourse of success has often caused him to he called, never did he have a fsdrer iield f< r exhibiting it. He alcne has uncontrolled au thority in his hands; of all living men he has the most to gnln by success, and of all living prince* he has the least to Io>e, fur he knows t'. | the same fortunate career whirh placed him where j he is run alone keep him there.

Tur kish, Sardinian. French, aud Fnglish dare n?t mo\o without consulting cach other ; and that unless the force and energy ? f a single will he brought to bear, the present Mate of things may run on ad infinitum. The new national loan has succeeded beyond all ex pectation: never was there exhibited so much enthu siasm ? never such dogged determination to have a slice. Ail night long have poor creat'res st tod merrily throughout the pelting rain and brave*! lite lightning's flash, the thunder's peal; and now, it Is said that three milliards ut least will have evinced the nation. 1 sup]H>rt of the Emperor's policy. What an opportunity for Napoleon the Third ! Hacked by the national will as thi- mateiially shows ? stimit a ted by failure after failnre of men itnr-<>d in the school of war -called upon to do that whicb io his Utmost soul he must have wneatfr yearned to do-it la aoueely to be believed that he will not, ? mn mOk gew gaws of the Britiah Queen's reception ?re over, gird cu hi. armor and wend hi. way to the Crimea, fc omething must be done, for the French will not Bit down tamely with the proepect of another winter. As to the loan itnelf, the Emperor in boaud to make the most of it; bnt foreigners would be very unwisely led away who should soppoee there is any thing in rt beyond the agiotage-. the stock jobbing spirit of tiie age. The attempt to cover the loan by sums of fifty francs soon proved a failure, and lest capitalists should be deterred from coming forward the government was soon obliged to confess the' fact. As an experiment it has undoubtedly suc ceeded admirably, and the high handed good faith with which the government has returned the surplus each time, has only made the speculator* more anxious than ever to get rid of their hoards. But in FTnmejubt now we are re-enacting the mernor.i We part of George Law, of bubble nXneU Credit is the order of the day everywhere ao.l

The cJ> y ?n? ari2 a? h?d 11 momentary check in raising 60 millions for further improvement*, but the hope e jn the national 760 millions may acoount tor this. Improvements on the most stupendous scale are contemplated, and doubtless soon the means of carrying them into effect will be provided. The Arch of Triumph in to be surronnaed by a ?3Uiar?v lCefl' ?branrh bourse is to be establish ed in the CliampB Elys^ea, which is gradually to Ihj converted into a boulevard, and resign its arcadian name to the Hois de Boulogne, which will really be come the Elysian fields of Paris. In addition to the fete at Versailles, I mentioned in my la>,t a grand bull is to be given at the Tuile l les to the Jacen, and another at the Hotel do Ville. It is a so said, there will be three wits to the theatres; one to the Grand Opera, where the opera of Duke Ernest of Haxe-Cobnrg and Uotha is to be brought out; one to the Theatre Prancais, wLere Mile. Rachel is to appear, she delaying her departure forAmerica in order to do so; and the third to the Opera Cornice, where " Hayd<?e" is to be repieeented. TLere are coalitions among the workmen, in spite or the full employment at present existing, which give the government considerable uneasiness. They are instanced by continual litigations with their em filoyers, both in Paris and in the provinces; and though nothing of a political character appears, it is known that something of the kind lays at the bot w m,ttLd at the fitting time might, by any agitator be converted into political capital. The Cmstilu thhmibjcct ? semi-official organs, says on " Do not the workmen know, besides, that they have a right to count on the enlightened solicitude oi tbe administration, which incessantly studies their Interests, and is occupied incessantly about their well being ? Have they forgotten what the govern ment has clone, with so mnch wisdom and firmness to render the workmen's dwellings healthy, to as-' sure the meanR of subsistence, to multiply institu tions oi forecast, to develope those of beneficeiioe? to ameliorate, in one word, the condition of the in dustrial populations? Have they not seen, in fact thanks to the generous initiation of the Emperor Napoleon "1-? veritable prodigies accomplished in tlie industrial world?

Madiimc AJexandrine Laurence de lllescanip, widow of Inncc Lncien Bonaparte, brother of the hr.:peror Napoleon I , is dead, in her 77tb year, a-id ine Court ftoes into mourning for ton days. The Emperor departed yesterday for Biarritz to meet the bmprcss. It is no small proof of the intense love of scandal which pervades the French character, that notwith standing the known regularity of the Emperor's life, nrd his devotion to his wife, reports arc often iudua tnciusly dirsenmialed to the contrary. When re siding at the Tmleries the daily domestic routine of the court >s a dinner tal>le of twelve or fourteen per ons, con: isting of the Emperor, Empress, the lords and ladies in waiting, and those oflicers of the guides whose turn it is to be on duty. The dinner .Until that time every nue knows how ? he Emperor is occupied. The company does not stpamte till eleven, and by eight o'clock nexi, na ming the Kmpemr Is in his cabinet de travail His cor duct to the Empress no one can mistake. During the v hole of the dinner her voluble tonirae runs on to every person, and upon every subject. The Emperor himself says little, but follows with delighted eyes every word which drops from the Empress, and seems richly to enjoy every syllable she utters. After dinner he steals away for half an hour, for just one segar, to which his physicians now limit him, when he returns to join the company. In the cabinet of the Emperor, or rather against the door, ?hich is always open, sit two gentlemen in waiting; and in the boudoir of the Empress aro two or her lruids of honor, who rise up to quit the room the moment his Mujesty enters. During the even ing, after diuner, if the Emperor rises, even only for a moment, all the company rise al*), and sit only when the Emperor sits. As far as domestic happiness is concerned, few I believe, are more fortunate than Napoleon; and it is obseircd rhat he seizes every available opiiortunity of being in the company of Eugenie. If he does not go with her on the customary drive to the Bois de Boulogne, lie is sure to be seen an hour aftenvard galloping after her; and if she sets off to the Eaux llonnes or Biarritz, we see, as in the present instance lie seizes the first opportunity of joining her; end yet theie are people who will tell you that oriental vicionsness is nothing to his private life.

For thin purpose troops are going forward from all parte by land ami ?ea, and the 16th of thia month there o ight to be in and about Pareelona thirty batallions, or about 26, 000 mm. Nevertheless, at the moment these lines are writ ten. according to the lust telegraphic deepateh, Barcelona apptars less hostile? 'he workmen have retired in part. The national militia is coming forward to offer its siumort to the government to maintain order, and the OsjflHh Gfneral is acting with prudence and energy. A strong party of Cartists, who entered Catalonia from the French frontier under the Carlist leader, Marsal, at first caused serious slurm, because his appearance coincided with the disorders in Barcelona; but the baad has been entirely destroyed by the valor and resolution of the now national militia, whose members have fought like heroes; and the smaller bands, which sprung into existence at one point or another, are thus far immediately beaten and dispersed by the troops or the militia. At present the Carlist fac tion does not, therefore, cause the government much anxiety. The authorities behave well, snd the people ? vldeutly do not wish for any more civil war under that "fhe curates snd other priests continue to take an active I art in the Carlist hands in various parts of the peninsu la, and especially in Catalonia, and furnish them with tunds; but the authorities also continue to get hold-of l.ete revet ends, giviDg them generally the opportunity o receive the palm of martyrdom for their evangelical mission in favor of Ton Carlos VI. 1 have told you, in my former letters, that the clergjr < t !-pain. with tew exceptions, is wholly immoral, irreli gious, ignorant, and even imbecile. On oua side the curates of the villages are capturcd heading the factious I'm ds with the cassock tacked up, a great rosary around their necks, and a blunderbuss In their hands; on another they are caught in conspiracies, their papers are looked over, and Ihev are found inscribed among infamous ma chination*. Mere a bishop protests in scandalous term* agkinst the low of release trom mortmain of the lands ot the church, und nothing can be done hut arrest him; there an archbishop makes open resistance to the deli very of these lands, and the civil authority Is forced to teneh him the maxims of the Gospel with the sabre; and at the height of scandal and insubordination the Cardinal, Archbishop of Toledo, the primate and first ecclesiastical authority of the nation, has protested solemnly against the law of release from mortmain, which he believes con trary to those of the church, to the Council of Trent, and to the last concordat ; and whilst ho denies the power of the government of the nation to dispose of the said lands he ha.i ordered the ndministrutor of .lis diocese not to deliver them, nor furnish the inventories or other pa pers. This proceeding on the part of the Cardinal has caused the civil authority to procced without any consi deration to the fulfilment of tho law. It appears that the news that, Rome will recall her re presentative here Monsenor Frunchi, gathers probabi lity. Spaniards say, let him go and welcome, and the quicker the better. So there is a pretty little schism on hi- ud among the other diversions in the Spanish Stato this sunnier, and we may be all dried up and withered r way by a thunderbolt of general excommunication be fore (be drg Uayr are over. A committee of the Assembly is about to present an act of occupation against the members of the government overthrown in July of last year, for the forced loan, for corrupt grants concerning railways, for their estimate*, and for arbitrary transportation of Spaniards into exile; but a prominent part of the Chamber wishes that th'a ac cuintUn thou Id he extended to thfc members of for me- cabinets who also violated the laws. This !?? just tho boot on the other leg ? nothing more. 'J be amount of smuggling carried on over the Portu guese frontier i* immense, and the worst of it is that it has been going on to the injury of Spain from the time of Ton Juan VI., and his mother. Queen Maria; but it has lately been exciting considerable attention, .Jo much so, that if there were not hope.-, that the young King of Por tugal, who will be crowned this niimmcr, would do some thing to flop It, thore is no knowing how much excited the finish monarchy might get with tho idea of teach ing lortugal her duty. The municipality of Madrid has ordered a groat civil and religious ceremony, to celebrate the anniversary of tho ltth, 18th and 19th of July, of last year, the first anniversary of the revolution. 'ihe cholera is making ravages throughout almost the whole of Spain. In Madrid it is still moderate, an t ha- hardly reached the number of fifty ca-es daily ; but some of ihe little towns of the province are decimated. In liraniu'.a, the beautiful ? that enchanting last dwelling } lace of the Andalucian Moors ? it is the worst. There all >he cases are death, and the city is almost deserted. The Queen has sent on some funds from her own scanty purse, foi-vharity in Granada. The provinces of Galicia begin to feel again the pres sure ol penury end scarcity, und the government has sent commission to study out soma means of making front to the scourge of tamlne. The Court has just removed to the Kscurial for the hot months. Madrid is tranquil. KL. Cll>. Out Frankfort CoiTMpondcnef. Frank VORT-ON-Tna-MAIVR, Jnly 25, 1855. Conduct of Austria in Regard to the War ? Her Relations to Germany, Hungary, Italy and the BiUigerent Powers ? Contemplated Internal Re form ? ? At utria Cannot Become the Ally of Rus sia ? German Sympathies and Enlistments ? 7\ir key Europ*uni-ud ? Spanish Finances, Cuba and the Administration in Washington. Though the conduct of Austria Is the ratine of mi. eh animadversion in the British journals, it is yet too decidedly opposed to Russia to meet witli the ap proliation of Prusf-ia. Austria desired that the Ger man Diet should recognize the integrity of the Four l-'cLits as Austria construed them; but to this Prus sia is decidedly opposed. Prussia, as far as the go vernment is concerned, is completely Russianized; ibe absolutism of the King knowing no bounds, and Rum- la being looked upon by him as his guardian and inctructor. Austria, though feeble and exhaust ed by civil war and bloodhhed, is, nevertheless, mak ing an attempt to strengthen her position, as op posed to the further extension of the power of Rum .la; and for thin purpose seeks the adhesion of the mailer States of Germany, which, to a limited ex tent, she has already secured. Her request that the war f ooting of the States of the Germanic Confedera tion might continue will be granted ; but the troops will be dismissed on furlough, and mutters will remain in ntalu quo. The dualiMii of Austria and Prussia, though it weakens and destroys German influence in the af fairs of Europe, is nevertheless of some advantage to ihe German people. Prussia, heretofore, has assum ed to lead tant bun </us mal, the progressive party in Germany? a circumstance which has been of much advantage to her, both in a jKtlitical and commercial point of view, it placed her at the head of the Ger man tariff league? the Zollveiein ? which slic repre. sented entirely in all treaties with foreign Powers. The Germans * ho looked to the future union of their country, considered Prussia aa the medium through which it must be effected, nnd Prussia, in oonse '{uence, enjoyed much honor and distinction, to which, all thing* properly considered, she was not entltled Tben came the year lK<v( exhibiting the true object nnd tendency of the Prussian government, and teucu i ig its fearful lesson to the drowsy and inefficient government of Austria. The Italian States and Hun gary revolted. The former were put down by the Austrian commander, Radetzk} ? the latter Could only be subdued by the intervention of Riasia. Aus tria profited by this double lesion. She said that the effort she was making to suppress liberalism in her States, not only alienated her from Germany, and left the Held open to Prussia, but also so diminituied her internal resources and power that she must become a vassal of Russia if she would remain absolute muster at h< me. Ont of the ten millions of inhabitants of Hungary there are but four millions of Magyars? the others are Germans and Sclavonians? yet the whole power of Austria was inefficient to subdue their revolt. So, then, Austria must Germanize Hungary? that H attach her to German institutions, by developing her industry, her commerce, and by mproving the i ondltion of net laboring rhsse*. This she is determined to do. nnd with it slic is making "Hie approach towards constitutional government. Hhc is about to convoke the States of Italy, with a view of establishing something like a constitutional government in the kingdom of Lcmburdy and Venice. I readily nflmit that all those efforts are as yet ?pusmodic; but. then, n government having for so n any years travelled on the road of abeolutUm, and having co recently succeeded against the most daring rebellion, cannot travel very fa?t on the road to ra tional f.ecdom; nor can it travel solely for a while, till profession and practice shall have convinced the people of its certainty. It is, ]>erh?p*, a fearful comment on the liberalism of Germany, to say that Austria leads the liberal party; and this Is, nevertheless the ca?e tr.?l wili furnish yon a standard of comparison for the Mrtflltr Hates, in Hanover, II ewe and Wurtcm I nrg, th< ( 1 r.rnler? continue the battle with the ab sent* tendencies ??f the government, and in general, it may be raid that Germany only wants an opportn* ly to feel and act as a free and united pe->ple. That Germany, with two thousand years history on her luck , is not able at ouce? pei haps never ? to establ ?h a republican government after tire model of the United Stutea, u earn to be toncedel on all bands, bet it woold to * mistake td suppose thai one and tba same form of government is applicable to every people uid to all circnmatanoes in wbieb that people may be placed. As long aa Europe ia exposed to Asiatic invasions, a constitutional mo narchical form of government will be moreolBoaoi ons in r* palling that invasion than the beet republic, with disunionista in Parliament or an imbecile at the bead of the' government, elected as a choioe be tween two really great and meritorious men. The example of the United States has, in this respect, not acted vry encouragingly on the republicans of Europe* and has ceased to be considered the patontme dicine for all political diseases. The United States, secure as they are agoiust any and every attack from Europe, and without a single powerful nation pa the American continent to dispute their progress or dominion, may have a weak, vacillating government for four years, without robbing the soil of a bnshe of wheat or a bale of cotton; bat the matter migh turn ont disastrously If a similar case happened in. Europe. The very freedom of Poland, and the fac tions in which she was divided, rendered her ao easy prey to Russia. The first step in a commercial point of vieW which Austria is about to take, is to ask admission into the German Zollverein. The manufactures of Bohemia, it is believed, will, under encouraging laws and the fostering care of the government, be able to com pete witn tho.-e of Saxony, while the silk manufac turea of Vienna, having the raw material close a their doors, have nothing to fear from their Ger man rivals. The admission of Austria with aO her States, Hungary included, will open to Germany the trade of the East, through the free navigation of the Danube, ard beat down all custom houses, from the Rhine to the Turkish frontier. It will open a market for the raw products of Hun gary, and enrich that country which has lately suf fered so mi.chby the revolution. There is bat one way of pacifying Hungary, and that is by ameliora ting her condition and developing her almost inex haustible resources. In connection with her entering the German Zoll-verein, Austria ia aiming at forming a tariff' league in Italy; but here ?he meets with the most dcteimined resistance of England and Prance. The commercial interest of England is opposed to such a measure, nnd the political prospects of Sardinia, the well known protegl of Great Britain, will not per mit it. On Italian ground Austria will not succeed; for here she has sinned too long, too inhumanly; iind here she meets a people more civilized, more re lined, and of greater historical reminiscences, than she herself can boast of. A people possessing a classical language and literature, and reminded of its former glory by a thousand monuments of mar ble find bra**, with the arts flourishing in every city, and its master pieces crowding every guflery of Europe, can never forget its origin, or quietly submit to foreign rule, let that rule be ever so mild. In her Hungarian and Scla vonian provinces, Austria may prevail by German civilization; but in Italy she cannot. Itafy is more civilized, though lean learned, than Germany. The elements of a classical education are to be found in the language and traditions of the people, instead of being the exclusive nroperty of the learned, and the whole mode of litem Italy is superior to that of Germany. Between Germany and Italy friendly and neighborly relations may exist; bat the history of the last thousand years hue; demonstrated that the union of Italy and Germany is unnatural and barren, ( nd destructive of tLc test interests of both eoun tii's. Let that whi. h God has put asunder (by the Alps) not be joined by tho puny hands of man. 1 have thus entered more folly on the pod* tion of Austria at home, in Hungary, Ger many and Italy; because this will furnish the cue to her conduct as regards the war in the East. It shows that Austria, in her present condition, will never become the active ally of Russia, and that us Boon as her political existence shall be secured at home and abroad, she cannot fail to become the rival of Russia in tbe commerce of the East. Her separate treaty with Turkey, her occupation of the Principalities, her antagonism to Prussia, her proposition to the German diet, all show that she has a policy, though trom her shattered fluaneea and the alienation of a very considerable portion of her subjects, that policy is as yet weak in all its manifes tation?. Austria wrnts peace at all hazards; for it Is in pence only that "he can introduce those reforms In her administration which may save her from na tional bankruptcy and ruin. Yet is the position ahe has assumed such that if she is compelled to draw the sword ahe must do it in the cause of the Allies, and I have no tear whatever of being contradicted by events. The increased power of Russia is incom patible with national existence. Austria may remain neutral for a while. Austrian officials, mis understanding their position, may misgovern in Hungary, in Transylvania, iu the Danobian Princi falitks, but in the end ahe must take aides with ranee und England or become a Russian province. As to the war, it is admitted on ail aides that it has only begun, and that 00 human rve con foresee its termination. Every sovereign that has engaged in it may die before tbe pre liminaries of peace are signed, and every gov ernment may change before the ratifications are xchangcd. The fall of Sebastopol or the signal re pulse of the allies will only be the signal for a gen eral war, not for a localized one as tbe present seems to be. I ^t Bessarabia be invaded by tne Turks, and the neutrality of Austria will at once be embroiled; let a revolution break out in any part of Hnrope, ana the war will at once receive a fearful nutriment in the preaching of a general crusade against the encroach ments ot tbe Asiatic power of Russia. Tnrkty will either be entirely Enropeanized by tbe present war, or she will cease to be an European iwiwer. Every relorm or change she introduces into ner government tends to modernize ber Institutions, and the creation of a national debt is perhaps not the least of these. Turkey must follow in the wake ot the protecting powers, and she must surrender the very fortresses which might enable her to resist ilicm. She has already lnttodooed a European ays km of conscription, allowing the Greeks to serve by the side of the Mussulman, and she will finish by giving her Christian population equal political rights with the faithful, it will be the only condition on which France and England will guaranty anew loan, und without such a guarantee no one, not even Baron Von Kothschild will lend her a penny. That the Greeks aie a poor, miserable race, less wai like, yet equally fanatic with the Turks, is evident from their resistance to the system of con scription. If they were the men their partisans would represent them they would eagerly seise the opportunity of arming themselves, and by carrying atmavbich ia the badge of a freeman iu tbe East, astert their equality witn their former rulers. The Greeks, boa ever, fly from the conscription and give fresh evidence of the historical truth, that it is not by a sine le stroke, however well aimed, that yon cun tran -form slaves into freemen. It Is now certain that nothing important will be undertaken ? gainst Cronstadt. though some blow may be struck c gainst the Baltic provinces of Rus sia. The over large naval force now in those seaa seems to warrant that conclusion- As the war is now conducted in tliohe waters, it is one of savage extermination for no other purpose than to Inflict the greatest injury on the enemy's property. This, unfortunately, is the leading chaiacteristtc of every ni'iritiroe war. the English and Russians are both recruiting in Germany, but the English are by far tbe most suc cessful. This shows Kufl'.c cntly which way Ger wnn sympathies are inclined, or, if yoe please, on which side is the inort money. The fact that so large a |s>rtion of the former army of Schleswig Hoi stein turn joineu the Kritish foreign legion, and that men of undoubted worth and character have taken the Vu eeii's commission, furnishes undisputable proofs that the lit eral *eutinient throughout the conti.ent Is *ith the allies, and not with Rnmia. This mt.y te oflittk or no consequence now, bat it may le decisive toward the close of it some years hence. The Sjiauixh Corks liftve Jn*t adjourned tin* die.
