Tbe Sitcle pub lishes It and vouches for its authenticity, and I give it ta you as it was told ta ths SiecU't thousands of readers ? Tbe Prince Kapoleon, when in the Onited Stale*, was travelling one evening on a river steamer, wbni. shout nine o'clock,a well-dressed, gentlemanly man cams up aad colore I into conversation wiih him. He gave him a great deal of information about tho I'mterf States, and talked mi wa l that the Prince, charmed with his elegant manners and conversation, to<k the trouble to ask tha Captain who he was. "Your Highness," replied ths captain, ' that is our oook." "What! that man?" said the Prince, of course very mien surprised. "Yea, yoor Highness," again answered tbe captain, "that is tha beat's cook. During the entlro day he is at his furnace, but when his work is done and hu fires are out he takes off his apron, put- on his ooat anu becomes a gantieman. After eight o'clock in the evening he is the equal of every one on board." Titers is a French idea of American "equality'' for you.

The Constitution,;el of yente: -lay jKmra a broadside o^ hot -hot, in the shape of a three oolumu article, into Lr>r i Palmorston, for his recent speech on the Roman question, lie e u the opening paragraph-?'-Upon the Italian quest ion theorat>rsor the English goverumjut liave shown tUomselvei faithful to themselves?they have continuod to indulge in an amateur policy. Ipon itio Fioiuau quest :oa Lord Palme: ston has played ui?>a the surface, but has not rea-hed the bott'rn. As a cau^ummate Parliamentary orator, hu La^ above all, studied his audience, and had he contented himself with the plaudits of the Chamber, had he not at the clo3e of his discourse invoked the judgment ol posterity, w# would willinglv have lort the nobie orator in the peaceable enjoyment of his tri urnph. But silence is not permit'ed us in presence of statvstnaii who views matters from such a high ground* who counts with such assurance upon the Judgment of the futuro, and who, in misrepresenting the policy of others, gives to his own such complete evldenco of clair voyance, wisdom and generosity." The writer than calls the attention of Lord l'almersion to the fact that, wliilo he was talking against the French occupation of Home as a violation of the principle of non intervention. the des patch from Corfu arrived. in which, in reply to th? annu^ a.>y reiterated ataleinout of the Ioniaa Parliament ttia' the peoplo of the Ionian Islands desired to be united to Greece, the Lord Commissioner replied that the Pariia tn'-ut had no right to discuss the question' and adds, "What a respect for tho principle of non-intervention and the principle of nationalities.'' The writer then goes on to give the reason why, in spite of the obstinacy of the Roman court, and the hatred of it* counsellors, France still occupies Rome, preoccupied at the same time with its duties as a Catholic Power, and as a liberating Tower ia Italy. Every day takes inor and more from the lioman question its religious element and places it more and more upon purely political j grounds. The temporal power of the Pope was founded, and has continued, by submitting Itself to the condition* n< c.'asary to the life of a government. latterly, how. ever, thts government had been so badly admin Mered that "moral insurrection was jiermauent there, and that material order was no longer possible,except through toregnaid." In this painful condition of aliairs "two couroes of policy were offered to tto P.ouiau curt?the one wise and prudent, rec >m; needing indispensable con cessions, perfectly (omi^tible, however, with dv nity: the other distant, exasperating coun selling endless obstinacy and men-less protest atlou. The first ef these has for it- defender at Home I . ??,wef wbl' h restored the Pi-niiflcal throne and | which for tea years has protected it with ita sword.' The other is sustained by a coalition of men who ha\e mtned every cause they ever served, who unite their amoinone :n their common ruin, and who may be called the pilots ol all the grand shipwrecks during the i>?-t forty years. And it is to this policy that Rome lends a comnlscent car. All this is ouly too true; but ihe faulU of the cmrt of Rome do not prevent us from hsvlue a great interest in protecting thy person of the HolvFa ther, in assuring his independence, as certain difer encei with the Italian government d" not prerent vi from Ju|y ? question of honor.

The activity or their official agents i? incredible, and the manoeuvres they resort to exceed everything that wis known even uider the rep-'me of Uaateutlel and Westphalia. The natue of the Ktng is placed In the foreground, the elec tors ere tcld that the late opposition aimed at nothing less than the fib version of monarchy and the establishment of a republic, and that any one who rotes in favor of their candidates must therefore be considered a personal enemy of the sovereign. This thomo is variod accord ing to the fancy ot the laudrathf, or prefects, who ere appointed to superintend the elections in the several provinces. One of these gentlemen assures the people that the real question at issue is whether they are to be go verned in future by the King or by the Jew*; a second announces that the liberals want to introduce a commu nity of goods and wives; others do not even condescend to reason xviih the "vile multitude,''but Inform them siinply that It is the pleasure of his most gracloca Majesty they should return the governmant candl d ues. "In my opinion," says Lsndrath Von ?cbwding, "it would be be?t for the army te tako up arms, march fioin one end of the country to the other, and tread everything into tbo dust." The original is rather moro energetic;twit the inavitiea of Prussian officialism are not always flt for publication in the llKsaLn. It is but tight to mention, however, that Ust night's Pmtni-he y*ii?ng "inlaiD" an article stating that the Minister of the Intei ior has issued such instruction* to his subordi nates, requesting them to temper their zeal with a little discretion. There can be no doubt that this system of terroii*m will have some eTect, particularly H the rural dl.tricts, where ^npesaantry live in great n we of the powers that be;but n is not iaaj certain that it haattcitad .be utmost disgust among the more inteiiigeul and independent por t ions of the population, and convert**! numbers of very moderate men into violent opponents of the present gcvernuient. rhe Senate of the l uiversity of Berlin? a highly conservative b'dy?to whom a copy of the circular of M. do Jagow had bam transmitted by tha Minister nf I'ublic Kducstkm to serve ?s their guide at the next electious, have returned it with a diguilied pro t? t,atnl'mg that such Interference with then* ouoeti.u tiunal rights bail not be-n attempt-cd by any lornier mini 'ter,aud would not l>e aubtn tted te by them.nnd add ids at the same t ime that they totally disagreed with the ministry in regarding tbo present cont ,,?us ouo between royalty ?n tbe out* side and democracy en the other.

A till more ?lgniflo?tit demonstration, however, proceeds from a Has- .vbo art generally t tionght to prorer (heir intere ,t to the triumphs of a |s4it oal principle.

At first it waa piopoaed to remonstrate with tha go vernment, and point out the inconvenience to which the mercantilenommnaity would be subjected, but as it was not difficult to parceiva that thla would lead to uo thing, the object of tbe authorities In Hiing atich a day being sufficiently obvious, the merchanta of all tbe principal cities of Prussia have ooncluded to stay at home on tha 21th, and not to leave for Ulpald till after the elections. Thla resolution haa been eonoun'-e*, through the nawapapeia,to their eorrospon dents and to the public In federal, and, aa it is calculated that tha fair la attended by upwards of twenty thouaand merchants and manufaoturere from PrusaU, no import ant busineaa operation can take plaoe till after their ar rival, If they are not suspended altogether. In view of these symptoms of public opinion, It may beaafely predicted that, notwithstanding the unscrupu lous application of Vha aorew by M. and his understrap|?ra, they will not suoceed In oarryiug the elections.

H., on the 11th ult. for way of tho Azores, intoading to itop at l ayal on some business of minor importanoe, and to Bee what could be gathered of intoroat to our government there. We had a very Bno passage to that point, making the land in irsa than elovon day a, experiencing heavy weather and northerly gxlua all tho way, but proving tba excellent Bailing qualities of our good ship. When we reached tho point opposite Fayal, we " bore to" and at tempted to effect a landing, but found soon that the ofTurt would be unavailing, and that we were more than likely to have such weatnor at loast a week ou that coast, and that it would be useless to wait longer; eo we put off to sea again, sailing dead ahoad of a terrific gale and rain Btorm. We saw at Fayal only throe small craft, appa rently in chance of the Consul, flying American colors, which wore all tho sail seen within six hundred miles of that coast. We rogrctted being unabla to communicate with Mr. Dabcey, our Consnl; but it could not be helped. Four days out from Portsmouth we met the American ship St. Helena, rrom Bristol, England, sixty days out, bound for New York. She knew, of.course, but little of the feeling in England towards our people. She probably reported us upon arriving at Now York, as her captain boarded ua. Fiva days out we lost everboard John Campbell, a na il v? of Scotland, from Lowell, Massachusetts. one ot our potty officers. Though awry effort was made to aaro him possible, U proved useless, as tho tea was runmug high and the ship going ten knots. His body was re covered, and burlod the next day with appropriate ccrV monics. This ia our only Sirlo in accident us yet. The crcw consists or about two hundred and seventy flve mon aud thirty five officers. All have been, and are, uuusually healthy. We made tho coast of rortoi;dl on the 89th ult.; but on account of bad weather and the ruggednosa of the coast, and strong current of tho rlvar at Lisbon, did not reach anchorage until tho 2d inst. Captain Thatcher gave a national s ilute, which was relumed from tho castle. There we found the Kng IimIi frigate Shannon, which had arrived the day pre vious; a Spanish sloop of-war, a Prunaian naval school ship on a cruisa, and three Portuguose men-of-war. All of thorn boardod us as toon as we came to anchor, and pi e?onted Ih-ir compliments to tho commander. The Shannon, which sails for England this morning, kindly ottered to take charge of our letters, which we, o( curst, gladly accepted,dolighted to got so good a chiuico to send home. I had a chance of a few moments' conversation with the officers ol the FngliBh man of war, and was surprised at their apparunt chinge Of sentiment and the tone of in creasing good Ie^lmg and faith In the federal government and its p^wer. None of these nationalities, as here re presented, have much sympathy with rabeldora, pnrticu Hrly the piratical port of It ; and all talk to us as ir thoy would rejoice to seo I he war Mitt led speodily and ih favor of the Uuion. We have had a very kind reception thus lar; and, although we have not vet had time to snund fully tho feeling of the people of thla country, it is clearly favorable to us. The news had just arrived last night, via England, of tho exploits of the Merrimsc at Norfolk and the acci dents to our ships. Ihs facts were grouty ozaggoratod, as wo happened to know from having hoard of thj whole afl'air before we sailod from the I'nitod States. The same mall also brings the news that tho war is settled, or Ik to be immodlately, by a proposition which has been made by the foderol government, to yield all prAsent points in dispute and acknowledge the Southern confederacy, pro vided they .< hould stipulate to abolish all slavery in thirty years from the date of the compect. They Roomed greatly pleased with this here,and expressed much sur prise and apparent disappointment when we Informed them that we thought ir the abolition of slavery and set tlement ol the war depended upou any such terms ns those, that consummation so devoutly tn be wishod for would never bo arrived at; and they were quite taken aback when we laughei so heartily at what appeared to us like a big T. Ann? aell. That paper Is quoted here as the authority for the roport by the Portuguese papers. It Is now nearly six years since an American man of war has beea at this port. They seemed much astonistal nt our arrival at this time of war at home, although they had heard by way of Rnglaad that an Auierlciu man or war,tbe8t. Louis, had been sent her*.

It la, never theless, true that, auohaa they are, these two slilpa, or rather floating battarisa, would destroy the most solid wooden fabric. This fast bslng admitted, the con?e quenoe Is clear sad Incontsetable?namely, that at this moment tba noblest fleeta of uoplated wood are powerless ss Instruments of wsrfare. This fact our neighbors cannot perceive without regret?they who have spent for the last three or four years more than three hundred mlllioua In building new wooden shlpa. We saust congratulate ourselves that France has not been drawn into this movement, flhe hss left the Kngltsh Admiralty to quietly go oa Increasing their wooden fleet. Our Minister of Marine haa prudently re served 'he regulsr and moderate rasourcaa of the Budget for the building of the only plated snips which, I bank God, give at this day complete satisfaction. The ex ploitaof tba Merrimao have again proved the Inauffl nency of land forlltlcattona to protect the coast. THU, aim, u n trmi nM unptwtnl fact for one neighbor), who rushed iuto Incalculable expenaa on land far Mirations. The nava! combat which so sttracts attention shows the necessity of Inventing a plated ship whuh shall combine strength with sailing i>owers. The Merrlmsc, tin un wieldy v><*a?l, had to retire before the Monitor, which is smaller aud le?s powerfully armed. What Is now proved beyond doubt is, thai In the two woitds tba war navy is uudorg 'lug a cmpkie traimlor matlon, and tba' we must contiiiuS in the samn line, without prscipitstioa, csruvitily, but also wit'tojt wenk n?as.

The consequence is that the strange rumors wnick cir culated a year ago are now revived, and persona whs may really bo inuooent are brought once more under suspicion. An allegation of the kind, so long as it rests unexplained, bangs over almost evoiy one supposed ts possess influence, as it would only be to such that a mas like Mires, engaged in so many simulations, would think it worthwhile to present a sutn of fiOOOOOOf. If the affair o?me again before the Court of Appeal, and if every chance of acquittal be lost, the accused may then maks what is called a clean breast.
