Our correnpendeiKe lrom the European oapitaki, received by steamer Atlantic, and published in to day's paper, will be found unusually interesting. Wie imposing ceremonies which trob place on the (taring of the French exhibition are vividly des cribed, and give the best account extant of that memorable alfrlr. One of our Faris correspondents states that the object of Gen. Cm robe it's mission to Stockholm is to bring about, if possible, fresh nego tiationfl for peace, Louis Napoleon being, it is said> extremely anxious that the wai should not he further prolonged. The movements of the United States Minister at Athens have excited a good deal of com ment, and Ameri an influence is now stated to Ik dominant at the court of King Otho The impres sion seems to prevail pretty generally abroad that this country Is at length going to take an active part in European attain. Our correspondents at Gardens*. and Havana, writing on the 24th and 25th of Novemlier, inform ?a that the Captain-General hud issued an im^rortant decree to regulate the fighting of game cocks for the season. Another cargo of apprentice slaves had been laiuh d. There ha^ been a series of grand balls and bapUemal J'etes at Uavc.ua. The sugar trade was active at Cardenas. We give elsewhere un interesting account of the entry of Geu. Alvarez into the city of Mexico. Up ?o the 22d ult. the condition of that country had not improved, and disagreements were suiil to pre vail among the military chiefs. We have news from Aux Cayes (tit. Domingo) to the 4th nit. BusincnS was very dull. Money aud the produce of the country very scarce. American provisions wero also scarce. The new crop of ooflec Wtts small, and just beginning to come in slovly from the interior, owing to the course the tinner or was pursuing in inking n't the meu he could get for soldiers, to march against the Dominican portion of the island. A considerable portion of the laboring population had already joined his standard. It. was said that Soulouque was uhout visiting the eastern or Dominkuu end oi the inland, at the request of President Huntuivi, with tbe view of making some arrangement whereby a collision between the armies of tbe two might be avoided, and the effhsion of blood prevented. We are not iufcnueu as to the precise cause of this fresh quarrel. The steamship I'alwett*, Captain Baker, left Philadelphia yesterday, at 11 A. M., for Boston, and when oil the Point House, came iu contact with the steaming Bird, bound up, which so badly crippled the tug that she sunk iu two urinates afterwards, taking down with bcr the engineer, uained Herman Beely. The 1 ulmotto Lacked water, and fortuuately picked up three men that were on the tog's deck, landed them, and proceeded on her way down. The \alne of foreign goods Imported into the port of Boston daring the week ending ou Saturday last, amounted to $418,257. On Saturday the colton market was unsettled, and aak - were confined to a few hundred bales, at prices which indicated a falling off of about jc. a ^c. Flour was without material change, while sales were pretty freely mude, including 3,000 or 10,000 barrels tor export. Wheat was unsettled, with moderate fransactions, cliieily of the better qualities of white and red. Corn was rather eusier, though with out change of moment in prices. Pork was about the same, laird was active, aud among the sales were 2,000 hbls., deliverable In January and Fete roary, at 11 jc. a 11 I.e. Tallow was active. The soles embraced 250,000 a 300,000 lbs. at 13c. Sugars continued steady, with luodrittte sales. Cofl'ec was iu good demand, at full pi ices, and sales of Rio footed up about 1,500 bags, and 2,809 do. Bahia. Freights were Arm, with more offering for Liverpool, and grain was pretty freely engaged, at !?c. a 9jc., and flour at 3s. Among the engagements were 600 hhds tallow, ou t> mis not transpired. To Havre rates were t teddy. Another vessel was taken up for that port to load with flout ut On cents. Thr Meeting ol Con^rrM To-day?Tlic Puttlri In ihr Avrnu?Tl>e Pro*p<'tt Brfnr* t'wli It Utdrr or Hr volutlen ProtlAi nl'ii Kcuigci The Thirty-fourth Congress asoembles io the 'Capitol at Washington to-day. In view of the peculiar importance of this event, and the ex traordinary interest uud anxiety with which it has been anticipate] we have prepared a mas;- of special and general information upon Uie subject, which we spread before our readers, on the llrst page of this paper. From the his torical reminiscences included in this general chapter, it will be seen that there have been -one or two occasions heretofore when the or ganisation of the Ilou?e was the most difficult question ot the session; and it will also be seen that the diftinlty has never resulted in any aerious wii-pension of, or dstrime t to, the practical business of legislation. In no previous Congress, however, do we find any thing like a parallel to this, whether we look to the division of parties, factions aad sections. hr<wight about by the blunders and follies of this administration, or to the deli cate, exciting and pressin ; i.-v-ucs which con front Ike tao hou?< s at the very threshold. It is this peculiar diii.-ron of parties in this case, the pressure of the KaBsa- slavery question, and tin immediate b< aring~ of the approach ing Presidential ?lection, which have eaneed sagacious men to contemplate the meeting of this Congress with distrust, and coo! and sensible m> n to anticipate it with mis givings ot positive fear. We do not apprehend, however, that th>- e< nwrvatlve member? of the House will be so entirely overruled in their efforts at an organi/. itioo as ihat disorder and discord will for any unreasonable length of time prevail, though we arc [ repeted for a .few preliminary scenes of noi.-e and con Jusioo" which will r'nal some ol the mo-t mo mentous assemblages of Tammany Hall. Fera general estimate, let us assume that parties in the House arc formed as follows:? Usmoeratu 81 8oiith?f* whifc? 11 Hlaeb Ksj.ubli'.in* 68 Know 76 It ItfBMwiifefit that to elect a Sj^eakor by a majority, there must be a fusion somewhere. And as we are given authoritatively to under stand that the democrats will make t. r nominations and adhere to them from first to last, this question of fu oon is narrowed down io the black republicans and Know Nothing* " * "twelfth soition," or national Know So ? decide the J.-ene by fusing with the democracy, or the Northern free noil F:no* Nothings may nettle the question by '* junc tkiu witu the black republicans. To. this combi nation upon a flexible free soil casis the efforts of the Seward men aud the American Organ at Wasbingiou have bon earnestly directed, and our latest account* foreshadow the very possible organization of the House aader some such unhealthy conglomeration. But as this furton need not involve the "twelfth sec tion" American members, the probabilities are strengthened of its immediate or ultimate suc cess. The two parties between wbich the American organizations lind themselves in the House, are the two parties which will give them buttle in the Presidential election?the democracy in the South and North, and the Mack republicans In all the Northern States. In uny present con cessions, therefore, to either of these parties, the Know Nothings will calculate the direction in which such concessions will be most likely to do the least damage in the Presidential straggle. In this view it may be that "a shad for me and a herring for you,'" between the bk ck republicans and the Northern free soil Know Nothings, will be more politio as a Know Nothing movement than the surrender of the House officers to the democratic party. At all events, from our latest reports from Washing ton we aroprepared for a Northern free soilish organisation of the House. The late startling revolutionary intelligence from Kaunas strengthens this view oi the sub ject. The news of that house bnrniug outrage'by the " law and order"' party -of the Kansas squatters, and the general aspeot of the outbreak of a bloody border war in that Territory, will* be very apt to sink all ether issues in the slavery question at the federal Capitol this morning, and henceforth to the end ?f the chapter. Should such be the case, the black republican league may gain a point or two in the House officers; yet, if thin occurs, it will give the democratic party a more than countervailing advantage in the popular reac tion on the Presidential issue. Bnt where the most industrious and inge nious caucusing has failed of a solution of the problem of the-House organization, it is use less to proceed with conjectures. The imme diate" object desired in n prompt election of a Speaker is the President's message. As that document is never sent to the House until the President is informed by a joint committee that the two houses are organized, and ure ready to receive any communication which he may have to make, we cannot expect it until the House shall have, elected a Speaker. In this instance, the -President appears to have re solved, also, that no outsiders shall have the message before the two legitimate bodies to which it is addressed; for it appears that he las thought proper to deny a copy even to his own organ in the interior, l'or fear it may be sold upon a speculation to some enterprising New Yojk newspaper, in advance of the proper time. Our rrader". therefore, must resign them sclvi s to unit for the message until the House ftr.ll have elected a Speaker. Perhaps we may give them an agreeable surprise with the pub lication of the precious document in a day or two; perhaps its delivery may be deferred for a week or two. Let our readers, ia any event-? especially tho?c of Wall street?comfort them selves for the present with the assnranoc that the message will embrace no declaration of war against England, no seizure or forced sale of the island of Cuba, no absorption of Mexico or Ontral America, and that Mr. Pierce will be very circumspect and tenderfootod about the affairs of Kansas. The ball opens to day. The prospect before ns is gloomy aud dubious; but wo are yet con fident that the principles of order and sectional concord will prevail over the elements of anarchy, sedition and revolution. Pro?.|i??t offcacr In Kuro]M-. It is pretty well known that a strong effort is to bo made this winter for the re-establish mcnt of peace In Europe. The ucutr.il Powers ?Austria, Prussia, Sweden, Naples?perceive that it the war goes on they will inevitably be drawn into it; that they can in no contingent y derive any bone tit from helping Frauee to put down Russia ; in short, that their safety abso lutely requires the restoration of peace. Nor is ty at all improbable that in view of the caor nwu* loses indicted on Russia by the past jenr'e war, her friends arc bestirring themselves to effect a bottlement of the questions which led to the quarrel. There is very little doubt but the Crar would be w illing to abandon his designs on Turkey, and join the other European J'owcrs in giving the Porte any guarantee that might be required, ifhe could thereby purcha-.e peace. Hut how will these arguments ami these of fers t?e received by the Western Powers? If wo were to pin our faith to the common stcry? that England and France went to war with Russia solely for the protection of Turkey?we should have no difficulty in realizing the pros pect of o general pacification. From the mo ment that Russia abandoned her designs on the Porte?nothing would be easier?on this hypo thesis- than to agree upon the conditions of peace. Any second rate diplomatist could settle the future Haivt of Turkey, regulate the maritime law of the IIlack Sea, ami fix the nun which Ku?"-ia and Turkey?as the two ori ginal combatants? would be bonnd to pay. liut. very few persons possessing a moderate acquaintance with European politics, have fallen into the error of believing that the sta bility of Turkey w as the real bone of conten tion. That the trim aim of Nicholas was to absorb Turkey is undoubted; but the Allies have obviously had all along ulterior onjects in view. France had in the tirdi place to pro vide a safety-valve for the effervescence of her excitable youth; and next, to realize the Napo leonic traditionary schemes of continental expansion. England had to guard the western frontier of her Asiatic possessions again** Russian aggression. In comparison with objects the future state of Turkey anl her very existence as a nation, were never to the Allies matters of any consequence. An 1 when, over a year ago, their intcrrent.on in fact aevorr.pl i^hed what they said they went to war to provent Russia from doing, it cea?ed to be pm-'dile for a diplomatist to pretend that ihe war v.as piosecutcd on Turkey's account nlone. The question, therefore, as to the manner in which peace overtures would be received hj the Western I'owcrv involves an inquiry Into otb< r and far more momentous subjects than the future state of TV-hey. Has France at tained her object* The answer fs obvlo .dy, no! The imturhl dominions .ore precisely the same at these of the republic pf is p, Rn<j ?t? V ingdom of Louis Philippe. Up to this mo ment, France ha* not been carried to the Rhine: it has not gained a foot of gronnd in Italy; all Napoleon's skill and genius have been laid out without apparent return. The old dynasties which combined to overthrow his uncle are still on their thrones. France Is still surround ed by a fumily of sovereigns who detest Napo leon as an upstart. In a word, howewr suo cessfnl the Emperor's domestic policy has been, up to the present moment bis foreign policy has proved a failure in every point save the British alliance. II France were to make peace to-morrow, the war would have been a fruitless one. The mere rescue ol Turkey from the Russian grasp would be an inglorious achievement, more likely to breed trouble than anything else. In the battles that have been fought, with the exception of the storming of the Malakofl', France has added nothing to her military renown. The glory of Inkermann be longs to her ally. Even her actual victories have rather tended to show the wonderful strength and vigor of Russia, than to illustrate the old inviacibility of the French soldiery. On the other hand, if England were to make peace, her exertions would have been still more plainly thrown away. Her Asiatic fron tier is as defenceless as before. For purposes of aggression Russia's strength is unimpaired. For her, the moral of the war is that she is not a military Power, and cannot be; that she bas neither an army nor officers, nor men capable of wielding her governmeut at a time of dan ger; and that if she had bad the misfortune of engaging Russia singly, the Emperor Alexan der might possibly have executed his threat of invading England, and the siege of London might have figured in history in lieu of the Biege of Sebastopol. To make peace under Buch circumstances, and to leave such an im pression on the minds of the British people and foreigners, would seem a pitch of folly of which even the English administration could hardly be capable. If it he true?aud no other supposition will stand the test of inquiry?that the Western Powers went to war, the one to expand in Eu rope and revenge old Napoleonic scores, the ether to guard the western frontier of its Eastern empire, while an inroad upon Russia was made'from the east, it is gratuitous to ex pect that they will make peace before these objects are either gained or proved to be unat tainable. A steady prosecution of the war for nnothcr year or two will attain the object of the British by crippling the power of Russia to such an extent ub to render her harmless in Asia lor at least a generation. But France cannot spread herself to the Rhine, or fulfil the democratic mission of the Emperor in the overthrow of the most incapable of the old dynasties, until the war becomes general, the neutral Powers are involved in it, and hostili ties assume unprecedented a?d gigantic pro portions. FlNANClEKINl ANO COCK FlGHTIVO.?It ifl HOW high time lor the United States to complete the list of liivorB and compliments which for years past they have been in the habit of be stowing on General Santa Anna. We do not positively advise to put him on the pension ligt or to make him a donation in bounty lauds for his services in the Mexican war; bat when it is itmcmbired how much the Amoriean people have done lor him. just expectations have been excited that they will not now close their lands against him ?expectations which, we think, it would be shameful, if not cruel, to disappoint. For more than twenty years his ??Serene Highness'' has been on enr hands, and lias been no small expense to us-? both in blood and money?as the account now stands. in the war of Texan independence he extorted universal respect from the liberal way in which he dealt in American blood. Witness the cases of Fanning, Crockett, and others, at Mier, a' the Alamo, and many other places, where, ??? fliere Were no survivors, the incidents are now generously forgotten. For these heroic achievements be was warmly received by the Americans npon his capture at San Jacinto, He was immediately set at liberty; proper apologies were made for his detention; and he was duly escorted to Washington to receive the felicitations cf the President upon his magnanimity as an enemy. When the Mexican war broke out, Hauta An na was enjoying one of tie periodical compul sory visits to the island of Cuba. The Ameri can executive very generously extended to biic a tree pass to proceed to Mexico in search of fresh laurels. Thu? provided with our protec tion, he lauded to assume the commaud of the Mexican army, and to Oght the battle of Bucna Vista, where he exhibited bis usual good luck and humanity. He then fell back fo meet our army at Cerro Gordo, which, with a great ab sence of courtesy, drove him before them over a barranca, and nearly broke his neck. This defeat was another misfortune which time only could remedy, and time consequently was given to him, by the American Generals, for that purpose. When Sauta Anna hod fairly picked himself up again, and given notice of his being prepared for another light, he was gallantly met in the valley atContreros andChurubusco, end once more vanquished. From the effects of these disasters he was only saved by an ar mistice and suspension of arms, which wore granted to enable him to fortify the city and give the Americans a warm reception. Every thing being prepared, the United States army, without any regard ior the feelings of San.\ Anna, or the deep solicitude ot the executive for his health, attacked the Oaritis, and en tered the halls of the Montczumus. What more could now be dene for their favorite, a* bis countrymen were exasperated against Liin, and lad ordered him to be am ted and court martialed ? Ho could only bo protected in b living li s ur grateful country, and the Ame rican army furnished him a brilliant csorGfjr that purpose. Could anything manifest more their high estimation of the man? Again: Santa Anna returned to Mexico to as-nme regal powers, wbih, as u?aal, be exer died most tyrannically. He of course again became involved in trouble and ?be United Slates gave bim seven milliocs cf dollars keep up the appearances of his imperial state. Again be was compelled to totl gh1., and he now asks the United States to give hitn, in charity, three milllo-.srmre?ar item on an old account?to keep bim in his favorite amuse ment of cock fighting in Ms old age. ft would l e ungenerous not f a y>y the money, and of conrse it will he pni'j, it must be paid. The Mexican government has sent instruc tions to revoke any powers given by Suuta Anna to receive tticc three miUioThey ny fhe7 ignore ali drafts gi?iu by a defunct executive, inasmuch as a government Is not a comirerfcial house, subject to commercial uugM, but a nation guided by and exacting 'be observance of the laws of nations. The treaty declares the money is to be ''paid to th Mexican government"?not to any commercial houses?and the Mexican government in'i nratee that if the agents appointed by the 1 resent executive are not recognised as the proper persons to whom payment in to be made, then Santa Anna and bis agents are still in power, and not Alvarez and Comonfort. If tbese gentlemen cannot revoke any powers given by Santa Anna when in oflice, then we advise the Cabinet at Washington to hunt up one of the defunct commissioners of his " Serene Highness," and purchase another slice of Mexico. Now is a good time for bar gains of that sort. r 8* JK LATJtHT A JK W ft . BY ?LECTRK AND PWNTIN6 T&EtffiMllt VViuhlnKton. EXCITEMENT AXONO THK POLITICIANS -WHAT THE AETI-MIIIHABKA DKMOCBATH. WILL DO?NO CHANCE OF AN IM1IKDIATB OKU ANIZATION OF THE HOUSE, Washington, Deo. 2, 1855. Notwithstanding thin has been the Sibbath, the busy hum of politioa ha? resounded throughout the city. Bquad* of politicians are everywhere to he seen discussing the merits or demerits of the various candidates. The work goes bravely on. Now men are springing up like Jonas' gourd for the Speakership. The anti-Nebraeka democrats, who number about thlity, have been easting about for a proper man to throw their vote upon. They declare opeuly that it is impossible for Mum to support Col. Riohardson, who has been put forward as the administration candidate. They also intimate that it will bo out of the question for the.n to join in effecting an entire whig or Know Nothing or ganisation?that if Gen. Cullom is to be elected Clerk, anti-Nebraska, anti-administration democrats must have the Speaker. Mr. Banks, of MsssaehuseUs, whose antecedents are fair, seems to be gaining ground. There is another name mentionea, which It is thought will harmonise discordant elements, and may carry off the palm?lion. Galusha A. Grow, who is an old member, and comes from Wiliuot's district. But, as father Ritchie use 1 to say, nous verrmu. The met ting of republicans last evening failed to effect an>thing. It will he a regular bush fight. After a few formal ballots to-morrow something definite may be ascer

turned. That there will bo no election ol .Speaker to morrow is the universal opinion; and It may bo de'uyed for days or even weeks. Horace Greeley is busy in effecting a straight out re publican organisation, while Weed is lnylng low, hoping that something may "turn np." There are now about two hundred members in the city. There will not be more than a dozen or fifteen absent when hour of meeting arrises. The .-tale Department has received despatches brought by the steamer Ailautie, but their purport will not be known for a day or two yet. Senator.-, Kos'cr, Pugh, Wilson and Wright arrived last evening, and are stopping at Willard's. ? I). CAUOUK OF THK ANT1 ADMINISTRATION MBM11ERS? ULTERIOR DESIGNS OF 1 HE KKI'UHLIUAN LKAUUR !?

Cot Id .Seward and Gieeley be suspeeltd of n >t doing their work wail! Thu tremendous efforts made by these Jeep po lltieal returners look te more important iesuits than the mere organisation of Congress. Congress Is to bo org mi xed wtUt a view to the neit Presidential eh otiou, an I lbs Presidency it elf is the stake being played tar. Ti^s p ans were all arranged s-ime days ago in NewY.irk and are now being carried out hern. Congress is to be prooerly regn nlatod first; afterwards an election of a President by the ptople defeated; then it will be an enay matter to push Reward through the House ol Repret dilutive. into the rmi.ioiili.il chair. This is the light in which the black, republican move, men's ate now regarded lune. They will be closely watched.

'Ihe tale of horrors has been told by a number of wlt nesres, and graphically placed before the readers of the daily' papers, so for as it has gone. Tire scire described was such as we might have read of in a inruauc ?>, wire o the kernes were reckless individuals deeply dyed in human gore; but it Is something strangely new to sit in a court of justice In a civilised land, in the ninteentb century, snd hear from the lips of the surviving actors 'ho slaugh tering of that feat ful nigh', detailed. f'L-tols were used on all sides with precision and skill, (except where Tur ner (hot bimrelf) whtrh Is apparent from the number of wonnis Inflicted. There were thirteen shots discharge 1; one feilow "kept firing ail the time." Poole received one or two wounds besides the " fatal shot." Baker, the ac cused, was riddled like a 'arget from head to hip; others were more or less Injured, aud great might have been the havoc if all the pistols which we are told were snapped oo the occasion had gone off, and hit their men. One wit ness admits that he fired four shots at the opposing fac tion, two of which were at Baker, ami with hardiho ,1 he declared that If he had had four pistols, his "greit revenge would bave stomach for them all." Thi man's thirst for blood was not satiated by the cupiou-i fl w that came f> om all around him, and ho sweii rs tlia in his rage he fiung his pistol a way became tliu fif.h bar rel wculd not go off. " Can such things be," and not *\. cite our "sptcin! wonder V" The trial of Baker is painfully Interesting, and exhibit* in vivid colors life in New York among that class of men who have been the terror of a portion of our city. The Court of General Sessions will begin to day f'H sestlnn for tte Decombsr term.
