The deputai.ous csme in great state, and numbered nearly a hundred persons. The Queen briefly acknowledged the addresses, and ex pressed her satisfaction that peace was re established on a basis that affords security for its permanence. Both houses cf Parliament have recorded a vote of thanks to tho army and navy. Lord Panmure moved the resolution, and was secondad by Earl Derby in the Lords. In the Commons, Lord Palmerston made the motion and Mr. Disraeli seconded it. Loid Granville announoed that a pension of one thou sand pounds sterling, for life, would be settled on Gen. Williams, who is also created a baronet, by the title of Sir Wm. F. Williams, of Kars. Lord FJgin postponed his motion of Inquiry respecting the troops ordered to North America until after the bolt days. Lord Colchester gave notioe of a motion requiring Par liament to express its disapproval of the policy of aban doning the maritime rights so long held, as the Congress of Paris bad pledged Great Britain to do. To celebrate the peace the Queen has granted amnesty to all political cfiendtrs, consequently Smith O'Brien, Frost, Jones, and others may return home. Special ex ception, however, is made against these who escaped to the United S'ates. Lord Wodehetue, Uuder Secretary for Foreign Affairs, is appointed Envoy Extraordinary to St. Petersburg. The appointment is generally applauded. The Lord Mayor of London had given the onstomary banquet to the Ministry. The whole tone of the speeches on the occasion was congratulatory respecting the peace. Count Persigsy, the French Ambassador, said nothing oould sever the alliance of France and England. Lord Palmerston replied, reeiproeating the sen timent and complimenting the Ministers piecent of Sardi nia andTurkey. Lord Clarendon then spoke, glorifying the peace, and compliment'ng Russia. The usual toasts fol lowed, and the company separated early. The American Minister was not present, being engaged at the annual dinner of the Literary Fund, where he made a speech. The Crimean Board of Engineers continue its sessions, but they have lost all their Interest, Colonel Tullooh being sick. A regiment of German Jsgers at Plymouth had muli oied. The riigleadere were attested. They complained that the drill was too severe, and that they only anbsted till the end of the war. The five regiments in the Crimea under orders for Canada are the 7th, 9th, 39th, 62d and 63d Infantry, under the command of General Eyre. PRANCE. A Mil was introduced into the Legislature granting Our hundred thousand francs for the baptism of the Imperial Prince In June. The McmUeur publishes the monthly account of the Bank cf France, and the balance was satisfactory. A eon of the King of Sweden, the King of Wurtemburg, and Maximllhan, brother of the Emperor of Austria, are visiting Ix>uls Napoleon. Count Edgar Ney Is to be the bearer of Napoleon's 1st ttr in reply to the Czar's notifioatlcn of his accession to the throne of Russia. C^untMorney has been appointed Minister to St. Pe tersburg, and Count Orloff has taken for him the Weron zoff Palace on a three years' lease. Speculation on the Pari* Bourse had reached a great belghtb, and FngUsh commercial papers were warning Diiiisb capitalists against it. The weather in France tor several days previous to the sailing of lhe steamer bad been very severe. BELGIUM. The Senate was convoceted for Wednesday, the 14th lust. Count Walewskl's demand to muzzle the press of Belgium caused intense excitemont. A d? spateh from Brussels says:? lu tho Chambers on Wednesday, the Foreign M nInter, to answering an Interrogatory in regard to the recent speech of Count Walewskl on the press of Begtum, re plied that that speech bad not been officially communi c?t> d to the government. When that communication should he made the answer would be ready, and would be c mmunieated to all the governments, and would flimly maintain the tights of a constitutional and inde* pendent country. It was asked further whether any Power had askad for any modification of tha laws relating to the presi in Bel* glum. The Minister said he would answer in one word never. The meeting broke up amidst immepae cheering and enthusiasm. ITALY. It is staled that a collective note of the Powers that signed the treaty of peace is about ready to be forwgpded to the governments of Rome and Naples, recommending the reforms by Italian people. It is also said that the Pope's legatee at Paris has formally protested against Count Walewskl's 'anguage In the Congress, and that tha Papal government Is preparing a detailed reply thereto. It Is still further rumored that Naples will anticipate the Powers' remonstrance by granrlng an amnesty ou an ex tensive sea e. SARDINIA. Questions relative to the Coafeieneei have been put to Count Cavonr in the Sardinian Chambers. He replied that penfirg tb" nfgrUa'Ions c-jreralng Italy he eould net speak ral'y. With rsapee'. to the treaty of peee. he believed it would curare great moral and material ad vantage*. The Sardinian vtew of the Na'lan question vaa adopted, whilat that of Austria waa rejected. Henoe the question of Italy i* and must continue to be a Euro peanmatter. He added that the relations of Austria and Piedmont are not ameliorated by anything that haa ooaorred, and that the Sardinian government may rely on the people to meet every emergeney. A diapateh from Turin eeya the memorandum pceeent ed by Count do Cavour and the Marqula de WUllnmnrlne te the Chamber*, shown that Auetria having at the Con fereuoe refuse 1 to dtaouaa the oondltion of Ithly, Sardinia 1* the only State which offer* a barrier to revolution, and demands the oo-ep*ration ot Bogland and Franoa in car rying out reforms.

WawuNtiTOK, May V, 186* J he Chances of the. Three TalkeA of Candidate?, an Oonet drred in Washington. Theme who imagine the! a telaci ion wH> not be mil at Cincinnati from the three Northern candidate# name* are prowlxentiy mentioned?Plerte, Baa and Douglas? are either not au fait with the (acta, or they ham not considered the subject carefully. A her aote and a moment's reflection will demonstrate that at the approaching Contention there eaa he no- recurrence at the scenes enacted at Baltimore tour year* age. In the flret place we assume It a# a position which tan not be controverted, that although Mr Mere* will obtain a complimentary vote from the South, and Judge Don### 1?really the ohoioe of a large majority of the Southern delegates, yet that Mr. Buchanan would also be accept able to them. The South, no matter what their indi vidual preferences, are so little wedded to them at this time, that they nlll accept either of the gentlemen named, Ww hold that whenever a sufficient number #C Northern votes can be obtained by any one of these can didates, the houth will in a body go for that man. Bar Instance, Governor Howell Cobb, of Georgia, la strongly for Mr. Buchanan as his first choice, bat he do#r not hesitate to awow that Judge Douglas would b# acceptab.e to bis State. Prominent men In Virginia have made the same remark. South Carolina ooeupl## the same ground as between Fierce and Douglas, though Mr. Keitt, one of the most chivalrous sons of that chivalrous State, Is for Douglas, as his flret and lant ohoioe. We merely mention names to show that we have Investigated the subjeot, and are giving tho result of ac tual observation and inquiry. Tho South, therefore, with its ISO electoral votes, being prepared to suppost any man the North vail present, with sufficient strength, the important inquiry arises as te the relative strength ot the three gentlemen named in the North. For it the premises are correctly tsken, we main tain that the candidate who oan present the largest num ber of votes?if added to tho South, sufficient to make op the two-thirds, or 19S electoral votes, must and inevita bly will receive the nomination. Mr. Buchanan's friends claim for him Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Hichlgsn, California and New York. We need not enter into any argument as to Nov York, be cause there ia no probability that any compromise will be effected between the two sets of delegates. And. etna if therewere.it Is evident upon the best showing. Kr. Bu chanan could not get more than a third of the vole#. Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Michigan and California, re present forty-four Electoral votes. Mr. Pierce's friend* claim Massachusetts, New Hamp shire, Connecticut, Maine, Khode Island, representing thirty-six electoral votes. Judge Douglas' friends claim Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Vermont and Wtsooaaia, all doubt as te the latter State having been removed. These States represent sixty two electoral votes. Mr. Bright answers for Indiana going for Douglas, a#A Mersrs. Medary, Pugh, he., give the same guarantee aw to Ohio. If these figures are eomctly stated, and their accuracy cannot be controverted over any responsible signature, it follows that it would require but a small portion of Pierce's Northern strength to be thrown for Douglas I# insure his nomination; whilst, 'on the other hand, Mr. Buchanan or Mr. Pieroe would require nearly two-third# of Jodge Douglas' support to be transferred to them In enable the South to decide the question in their favor. We do not dee ire to Indicate the result, but simply I# state the facts ?? they now present themselves. Thee* who ealoulate upon a general row, and th# substitution if a Southern candidate, will he disappointed?that's all. Washington, May 1th MM. ^ Narrowing Down the Platform. / The Union is hard at work narrowing down tho damn- 1 eratie platform. It sticks to the task daily with great pertinacity. The first thing to be done ie te horn offi "Old Buck," ard the next to make the Kansas and Ns brasska bill In all Its stages a test. It woald be a curl to# proposition for the Union vo aaswer, whether, after suc ceeding in getting rid of Buchanan because hs was not te tho Nebraska fight, it could prevent the same rule front being applied to hundreds of thousands of people wha occupied precisely the same predicament. Or does ths Union intend forclrg its favorite upon the democracy, knowing that he oannot he elected but simply that hn may be endorsed by a ranominatlon, a luxury for Whioh the democracy will have to pay the oost In a grand smash up from one end of the Union to the other? W# notice that the Portland Argvi, a qnlet Yankee newspa per, published away off la Maine, payB its respects to ten Union after this fashion:? If under the amnesty once proclaimed by the Onim any Northern democrat ever doubted as to the policy ef introducing the Nebraska bill Into the last Congress, w# are sure there are no members of tho party now ia it# organisation who do not cordially endorse its prtn eiple and who do not denounce all thought of agitating for its repeal. * ? * e e e e The repeal of the Nebraska bill Is not an issue whisk the opposition dare present. Its great prinoiple is almo#> beyond attaek; but whatever creiit there is in sustaining U, is not a monopoly for tho personal benefit of any man. We protest against any snob narrow and selfish dootrto# as that, whether in office or out of office, whether dis tinguished or obscure, whether living at the South ar North; any man who honestly and faithfully maintain# the principles of th# party Is as good a domojrat, and a# mush entitled to regard and consideration as each, an any other man in ths Union. That is what we oall hard sense; bit it will have very little effect upon the Washington Union. That] seems to know as much of the public opinion of the t try sb it does oi the public opinion In some distant pla net, or of the ruling party in Japan. While complaining that Old Buck's friends are attacking the President, it keeps Its sharp knife constantly at work, attacking htm under the fifth rib, by pretending to bo friendly to him. The Boaton Port joins in the hue and ory, and ale# wants to narrow down the platform. That ia a business at whioh the Boston Port Is proficient. Tho party la key# small in Massachusetts, se tbat the offioss may never g#t out of a single circle; and if only the Port, oan tote# l'isros upon the track, and get the 8outh to help it In the work, Greene and his coadjutors think they oan hold em to the offices, because Pennsylvania, the old Ooneetoga team horse, will do the work, shoulder the responsibility, and elect the nominee, whoever he la.

The atteada### was very large, and so far aa 1 oould glean, from th* tone of the Convention, tho eentlment seemed strongly In favor of Buehanan. The chief managers, however, by adroit planning and preeoneerted arrangements, m> seeded in seeming the election of one delegate in fkvwr of Hunter; bnt I oan safely my, notwithstanding, thai the feeling of tho district is with Buobanan. Th* Convention assembled about 12 o'elook M., and organised by appointing Dr Abner Crump, of Powhatan, to the chair, and Win. F. Rltohia and R. W. Hughes, of the Enquirer and tnaminer, secretaries. Ths usual preliminary of calling over th* several counties composing the district, with a view to issirtain the number of d?legatee present from each, having beam gone through, a resolution was offered by Mr. Roam A. Pavon, editor of the Enquirer, authorising th* Chair Is appoint a committee of one from each county to draft resolutions for the consideration of tho Con von I tow. It was adopted after considerable debate, some preferring that the delegates from each oounty should ohooee from among their number th* individual who wne to rawrnamt tbat particular county In the committee. Th* prifenuem of the Chair were understood to bo for Hunter, and heaaa this effort on the part ot Buehanan'e friends to mnke ay the committ*a la the form juat indicated.
