cute' pri.se. 'I lie increasing urgency of the de- [ uiuiid of western mereh mts tor increased facil ities oi transportation, appears x> have aroused attention again to this route; hut it is hinted that the* demonstration has been made partly ! tor the purpose ofal irtiling New Yorkers, and inducing them to hasten the construction of the Niagara ship canal. The visit of the delegates from the United States was duly honored by a complimentary dinner, which was given on the 19th by the di rectors ot the Huron and Ontario Ship Canal Company. Senator Ames, ot Oswego, and Governor Bross, of Illinois, as well as several gentlemen or the province*, made speeches setting forth the importance ol the enterprise uud declaring their most cordial sympathy. . Lieutenant-Governor Dross gave an account of the benefits to arise from the construction of the canal. lie asserted that the growth and development ol the country west of Chicago is much greater than that ol the city itself; and that in all that vast fertile country, the limit of profitable production i.i about reached, unless greatly enlarged avenues can be opened to eou vey its products to the ocean. The proposed eaual, he said, capable of passing vessels of a thousand tons burthen, With a corresponding deepening of the St. Lawrence canal, would afford the only adequate relief to the commerce ot the West. The canal would lessen the dis tance bet ween Chicago and all the cities on the western shores of Lake Michigan, as well as New York and Liverpool, some three hun dred miles.—N. Y. Post. The Kalian Premier. (Florence (Dec. 3> Correspondence of the Cosmopoli tan.) Baron Pettino Ricasoli, our present premier, is undoubtedly a man not deficient in diplo matic tact, and, to his honor be it said, is a minister ot a rare integrity. In normal times I dare say he would prove one oi the firmest pillars of the State, or to express it with a more common-place phrase, he would be the right man in the right place. But, at a period of our national existence when we have to untie the gordian knot of the Roman question -that ques tion which, eel-like, slips out of your lingers when you feel confident of holding it secure in your grasp—1 think we shall require either a man of superior diplomatic geuius, or of a somewhat rougliish plausibility, to attain our desired goal. Out dear Bettino is too upright to compete with any chance of success, with the Jides Punica of the Roman court, and too short-witted to Checkmate the subtle Macliia veiism of ilic Poutilical government, lam afraid this thorny question will again be to our Baron the Rock of Scyiia against which he once split his premier ship four years ago.— However, it must be confessed that lie strug gles manfully, and does all that is in his power to bring about a conciliation between Italy and Rome, and we may bfe sure that it he is to fall in consequence ol ill success he will only fall after basing exhausted all persuasive argu 3 nits, as riie ancient gladiator fell after hating kb id all his life-blood. x told you in uiy lust tint rumor was cur rent hero that negotiations were likely to be resumed between the two governments, through the mediation ot M. Vegezzi Well, the ru mor was not unfounded; only the wish was father to llie thought it wus; iu fact, Baron Ricasoli’s earnest wish that another attempt should be made by the Italian government to conciliate the Roman Court before the depart ure of the French from the Eternal City, but the difficulty lay in finding the imyper Mercu ry who would go to Rome With the only mis sion of clearing the track of ail obstacles, and ; predispose his Holiness to the reception of the I Italian Envoy This time the Italian govern- j meet was willing to yield on many points, and eveu go so far as to renounce the Bishops’ oath oi allegiance. For this purpose Mousignor Beranti was sounded, but he declined the charge, on the ground of his being unpopular with tlij Roman Court lor his Eiberalisin.— Then the choice fell ou Abbe Stellardi—the j same who was despatched to Rome on the oc casion of the marriage of Frince’ss Maria 1'ia of Savoy to the Ring of Fortugul. His doings were to be very simple—viz., to get an audi- ! ence of ins Holiness, and endeavor to persuade 1 him to receive the Italian Envoy, who should ' be no other than the faithiul and orthodox Christian, M. \ egezzi. me accommodating Abbe accepted the nouorabie and onerous mis sion; went to Rome and saw the Fope; but, iinlLke Ciesar, he conquered not. On the con trary, lie mot with a very griui reception lroin his Holiness, who told him, somewhat in a pas sion, that his would not eater into any fur ther negotiotions with the Italian government —that he w as ready to quit Rome like a poor, helpless, wandering pilgrim—and that, if M. Vegezzi or any one else was sent to him for the purpose ot negotiations, lie would not receive him. In the meantime Baron Ricasoli, lull of hope aoout the success of the kind Abbe’s mission, had already summoned M. Vegezzi to Florence, and explained to him the sort of ser vice his government and his country required of him. Vegezzi listened with deference to the stringent reasoning of tue lofty Fremier, and then, with a frankness which is oue of his characteristics, answered the following textual words, lor which I go security: ‘‘Book here, my dear Bettinor you know ! that i am neither a rogue nor a simpleton*— j Well, it is tor this reason that I cauuot,and will t noc, accept to be your Envoy to the Fapal Court; lor, it i were to go there again, 1 should he compelled either to be bamboozled myself or to bamboozle others.” After this interview came a telegram from Rome, from Abbe Stel lardi, informing Baron Ricasoli that his Holi ness peremptorily refused to enter into any ne gotiations with the Italian government, and nere tue matter ended for the present. As you s^e. an understanding with the Court of Rome is as wide asunder as the Arctic is from the Antarctic Role, and that the Holy See is stand** iug in hostile array towards us exactly us it st. >od six years ago. Heaven have mercy on US! J i »*«• J!m>air« iu ( on a A Toulon letter furnishes the following par ticulars in relation to tin* recent massacre of French Missionaries in Corea: “Important news has been circulating here on the subject ot events in the China and Jap an, seas. The French Government, entirety disapproving of any attempt of an expedition against tiie kingdom oi Corea, directed dtear Admiral itoze to undertake notning until furth er orders, as the massacre of the I* reuch Mis sionaries required an exemplary chastisement w inch would be better deferred to a more op portune moment. Vengeance, though tardy, would only be more terrible on that account. There was an objection to engage in a hazard ous operation before obtaining a full knowledge of the approaches and resisting power of that mysterious country. The prudent provisions of the Government are in some sort couhined by the last dispatches. Admiral lioze having pen etrated into the sea ol Corea, abounding in dangerous shook, was lor a moment compro rnisni and threatened with a great disaster; obbgod to he^ continually casting the lead in the waters where the tides are subject to varia- ! tions 01 some ik) to IU leei every ZI hours, he ; found himself at last stranded on coral reels with ail his little liotiiia, consisting ol the 1 steam corvette Primauguet and several small gunboats. A catast-ophe appealed im- j minent, when a high tide U nited the vessels 1 and enabled them to emerge from their da age r- I ous position. Alter this escape, the Trench j squadron, trusting to the map of Commander i Guerin, as being entirely correct, made way to- | ward the mouth of a river indicated as one ol tli3 principal outlets of the capital of Corea.— ' Ascending the stream very slowly, they reach ed, at lour leagues lroin its mouto, a large vil lage, where a strong body ol armed men were j occupied in constructing weirs. After some ! fruitless attempts at a conference, the Admiral, seeing that ins presence caused no cessation oi ! the work, destroyed the stockade by cannon shot, and tired grape into the hostile corps d’ ! armee, which took loliight in every direction, j During this short engagement it w as remarked I that the Coreau troops marched La-eko.ed, ; and that the greater part of the soldiers were j armed with bows and arrows and carried pikes. Xlie Admiral, who only intended to make a hy drographical reconuoissanee to facilitate ulte- j lior operations, has left these inhospitable ' shores cojoin his main squadron iu the China seas." ‘ | Iiil Iacht Baci£,—No one can tell Low much money lias changed Lands as the result of the y^jht race Xhe New Vork Times re cords tLo transactions of a single individual, which may Serve as an indication of the free dom wita which bets were made:— Naturally a good deal of money has been TTcn and lost, in private wages, as well as in tile general stakes, in this result.

Mission Sabbath School Festival. — A pleasant and social festival came off at the Vestry of the Free Street Baptist Church, Monday evening, it being a gathering of the teachers and children of the Vaughan Street Mission Sabbath School, which was establish ed last July in the western part of the city, and occupies rooms in the Primary School Building, No. 12 Vaughan Street. This school, we are informed, commenced with forty children, and it now numbers near one hundred, with an avciuge attendance of eighty each Sabbath. Its Superintendent, Henry M. Mayling, and its corps of teachers, certainly deserve great praise for their efforts in this direction, having succeeded in. bringing together so large a number of children for re ligious education from among those who have no regular place of worship. The recitations of the children were well given and appropriate to the occasion. During the evening the young men of the Free Street Baptist Church presented to Rev. Dr. Stock bridge, their Pastor, a beautiful standard Ster eoscope, as a token of their esteem. It took the Doctor somewhat by surprise, from which, however, he readily recovered, and made oue of his happiest speeches in reply to the donors The music, undei the direction of George M. Bosworth, the Chorister of the Sabbath School, was excellent, the refreshments boun tiful and hberally served, and the little ones as well as the big ones, went home highly pleased with their evening’s entertainment. A SrarnisE.— Our friend C. P. Kimball, Esq., is a man that is not easily taken by sur prise or disconcerted.

The gift was so entirely unexpected that he could not tor a few moments collect his scat tered thoughts and express his thanks for such a handsome and unexpected gift. A pleasant time was then pAsed by e%ployer and em ployee, showing the good feelings that natur ally existed.

From Augu-tu. Augusta, Jan. 1. TO THE EDITOR Of THE PRESS: The western members of tbe Legislature are generally here as usual, there is much canvas sing in regard to the organisation of both branches. Lewis Barker of Stetson seems to be the probable candidate for Speaker. He has formed many acquaintances during his servic es on the stump, who are inclined to support him. The Presidency of the Senate is still a debateable question. Woodman appears to be a general favorite and is unquestionably popu lar with all the Senators,but there is a wish that his services could be had on the floor and on important committees, where his talents would be more useful, consequently the present probability is, that either Porter of Penobscot or Burpee of Knox, will be the successful can didate. Burpee has a larger strength than has been generally supposed, aud his friends are confident that he will win. Gen. Hersey would undoubtedly receive a majority of votes if he was a candidate. The attendance here is large, many promin ent politicians and military men are noticed among the crowd, Gen. Perry, Gen. Virgin. Col. Bust, Col. Smith, Marble of Waldobor ough, Simonton of Camden and Geo. Pierce of Harrison &c., &c. Several wounded soldiers arc here as applicants for places as messengers and it is tbe general wish to give these places to such applicants. Caucus to-night. In the meantime the excitement increases. The Au gusta House is full, and the eastern train will add to the crowd. Gen. Chamberlain has tak en rooms at the Augusta House and appears in good health. Jeff.

The Banuob Whig aud Cou riEK.—This ex cellent paper commences the New Year most promisingly. It made its appearance yester | day considerably enlarged in size, and with I some other new and attractive features. It is i now a very handsome sheet of similar dirnen ; sions to the Press before it assumed its present | torm, and quite as large as the Daily Argus.— ' As an able, fearless and independent journal the Whig is surpassed by no Mains paper which cumes to our office, and we welcome with sincere pleasure these evidences of its in creasing prosperity and acceptance. The editor, in his New Year salutatory, de clines to make promises for the future, but the present appearance of his paper, and its histo ry in the past, are sufficient assurance that under its present management no pains will be spared to keep pace with the business demands of the city to which it is an honor, and with the growing facilities and appetite for news and other reading matter in these times.
