Ttio wintering of the whole force cither there or at Tien t?in is row resolved on. In our list Overland we mentioned that the allied army was in a hostile attitude,seven or eight miles from 1'ekin, waiting for the Soige guns, and demanding the release of the captives who had been taken. There does not seem to have been any change in the position of matters from the 22nd of Septemb -r till the 3rd of October, when an advance was made In search of the Tartar army which only resulted iu a t>w picket* of the enemy being seen and driven hack. On the ?lh a further ada ,.uce rc-ulted in an eurthwork near Pe km, where no defence was made, being taken by our troops, and the Yuon-mm-Yiien. or summer palace of the Kmjieror, was taken and completely looted, aflording lm mouse s|ioil. The chief share of the plunder appears to have fallen to the French, who had the first ransacking of the rich ornaments, jewels and clock* and watches, the rich robe* and embroidered silks of the Hon of Heaven; but a quantity of the treasure which was taken is to be divided between both French and English. Some privates are gaid to have sold their shares for about 30.000 francs. The entire British share, including both treasure and pri vate toot, is estimated at about $90,000 Next day, in reply to a demand for the release of the prisoners, Messrs I'arkc* and loch wore givon up, t^ether with a French ?H * officer ana seven or eight prisoners On It*' 12th every thing was prepared for t tie first great cveut of the war?the assault or the occupation of Pektn, the nuviolated capital of China.

In one of the ante n>oins of ibo state bedroom at the summer palae<>, the treaty of TienUin, in Rngli-h and fhlnsar signed by IiOrd Hgiu. was found, it had be,* thrown on the ground by some one, and lay in the heaa of broken articles, till the English pap^r evidently at tractcd the eye of the person who discovered it. inaroRiTioN of thk groins. A Oeoeral order from tho British Commander-in-Chief doeired that all articles taken by officers und men w. re to be sent in for hhIc by public auciriou bar the heui hi of the army, which was done. All were permitted to have the articles they had brought away for themselves valued, and have the option of taking or rejecting them. Many beautiful curios and souvenirs were thus obtained at a nominal price. The sale realized $2'.'.000, which with the value of the treasure, estimated at got,000 is to be divided as prize money on the spot. Much dissatisfaction has been expressed at the dec Hon of the Ooiumander-ln-Ohief, that only those ol the troop* who marched from the last halting pi ice on the 6th are to participate in the prize money, all the 1 he real?those at Hie depot at Tungchow and etaewbore, iwMuaeveluded uflfce The commander-iu chief and general -?sers hive watred their right to share. A gold jug, of great value was presented to the commander in chief by the army Nearly all the articles were sold at very high pi ices, larg enamelled and inlaid vases and ornaments realizing full Hhanghae prices for such articles, the fact of their having lieen the property of ilien Pung adding an imaginary va lue to everything. The scene wh -re the site was held, In the temple Inmasirt, occupied by h -a lipiarlers was worthy the pencil of an artist. Ha 1 his itn|>erial Majesty handed over the whole of the oonteuts of that palace un injured, it would have sold lor an i-oortno'i* amount,more than lltreo fourths having been dc-lroyod or taken by the French.

I have not learnl what is then to bo iloue. It is supposed the army will n<>t enter i'ekin io any case, hut tiiat the oflicers will be allowed to do so with a pass. The utter destruction of the interior of the summer palace, where 1m-it rt-memin-red, I/-rd Amherst, as Ambassador from England, was Insulted, is hut-mall punishment for the Emperor's contumacy, and the treatment of the prison em who were captured whilst on a |>eaceful mission; y -t the like vi-italiuu be.ng lullicled 011 the iwlace iu I'ekin might be impolitic, though deserved. Thai would not only utterly destroy the present government, but pre vent the organization of a new one under our protection, should it be desirable to do so. The prompt release of the prisoners on our uear ap proach to the capital proves that only a tirin policy can succeed with this government, it is to tic hoped that the same will be persisted In, und that no terms short of our demand w ill be accepted.
