Affairs in France were far from being in asettlcd condition, stringent laws had been adopted and enforced to put down the Revolutionary clubs, and the Ministry had introduced a bill restricting the liberty of the press. This latter law gives a licensing power , 10 ids ministry ana virtually destroys all independence of the prcaB, arming them with the power of suspending all journals attacking the constitution or making appeals to the army. The Italian policy has caused a dissension iu the Cabiuet and it was thought some ofthe members would withdraw. Two hundred oftho insurrectionists at Lyons have boon arrested. The city of Rome had not fallen into the hands of the French as reported, but is gallantly defended by her citizens, who fight with a spirit and determination equal to their ancestors. Tho French alter seven hours bombardment had succecded in establishing themselves within the outer walls and and up to the 24th ult had advanced no farther. Tlie American Flag. It must be a source of proud satisfaction to every true American to knew the high estimate, and commanding position the uations of the earth accord to his nativo land. But a fow years since, our magnificent country waa an unbroken wilderness, where tho wild Indian roamed undisturbed by the presence of the white man?But a few years since, and the Filmim Fathers, driven bv nerseontion from the land of their birth, crossed the tedious ocean wave, to find a home in the .western world, where they might worship the Doity according to the dictates of their own consciences?But a few years since/ fend the Thirteen wigkiai States throw off the yoke of oppression and declared themselves free, sovereign and independent.

I The 11th inst., was celebrated by the Abbeville Division Snn? nf ? ?v. * vui|fVIUUVC il? tlieir first Anniversary. The day promised anything but pleasant, as rain Fell :n heavy 1 and frequent showers until about 10 o'clock, when the sky brightened, and with it the friends of the cause, and the old adage " that a bad beginning makes agood ending" was ' literally fulfilled. At 1*2 o'clock the Court | House was well filled by a very respectable audirnce of ladies and gentlemen. The Division was particularly favored with a large number of the former, who turned out in SI 1*P. north n t\A Vonuli* A ?1 ... vvuuijr. XX guuu iiuiuutrr had come in from the counrry. and the Cokesbury and Lowndsville Divisions were represented, especially the latter showed their strength by their number. The Rev. Mr. Turner, being requested by the Division, kindly opened 'ho proceedings of the day, with prayer. Then was sung the beautiful Temperance Song, "Speakers, Tell us of the Nioht." when vvnrp nrpconi. I ed totho Abbeville Division, an appropriate and beautifal Banner and niWo tfiu.?f .i.u jaurea of tbrf^tiiape. LI. A. Jones, BJsq., ncied in their behnlf, and was "replied to on the part ot' the Division, by Charles H. Allen, Esq. These gentlemen had but a short notice of their appointment, but acquitted themselves to the satisfaction of all, by their brief but appropriate addressee. ^ Mr. George Allen, then delivered an able and eloquent Address, whitfh was lis leneu 10 wun proiound attention by nil present. As the Address wilMbon appear in print, we shall nut attempt ^ synopsis of it, but request those who had not the pleasure of hearing" to give it a. reading. So long as Temperance and the Sons, have such advocates, the cause cannot suffer. After singing another Temporaries oTe to the tune of u Oft in the Stilly Night }?' the Indies were escorted to the basement of the Court House, where was spread in great uounuance, me prooucis 01 me garden and the field. No one, who has a good taste for a good dinner, could find fault with the repast, the liberal contributions of the Villagers,and of some in the vicinity. The< Toasts then came oft* and the day was unusually agreeaole; the ladies 4o judge from their approving looks seemed to pass tneir time very pleasantly, and at a late hour of the day the Temperance jubilee ended, with not a scene to mar its harmony of action, and its satisfactory progress throughout. - - . At ihe reading of every two or three of the toasts, Professors Broome .and Belimonte, contributed to the diversity*of the day by skillfully performing various.Duetts and other pieces of a^usic, deserving our thanks for their Uindno^as ihey would accept of no remuneration "j{br their services.

Constantinople.?At a meeting held of i the Troy House last Monday evening, to | near statements respecting the progress in missions, Rev. Dr. Dvvight, recently from Constantinople, said, that the moral change in that city was truly wonderful. A dozen or fifteen years since, ho had not expected to see all religions protected hy the Sultan ! The enmity to pure Christianity, when he first went there, seemed universal, among a million of inhabitants. Since then, Germans, French, and En !ish, ns well as Americans, friendly to our Mission, had settled there; and these, as well as the Foreign Embassadors, bad favored correct sentiment, and allayed TurkThen, femalo"educaiton was unknown and prohibited. Now the Mission had a flourishing Female Seminary, and there were eight or ten other female schools. Now, too, they had a seminary lor the Christian instruction of young men, who, in talents, standing, and prospects of influence, were equal to any in that country. They had also a church of about one hundred communicants, who seemed growing in piety, intelligence, and influcncc, among the people. And it was un inter- | estinf IflCf. thnt ivlifnomp hmiinrki I 1 " ?ti"? the Turkish Courts, us they hud been by persecutors, like Paul, by simple statements, they always made known and commended their religion to the judges, and to multi- j tudes, who might not otherwise hear the j Gospel.?N. Y. Jour. Com. i Buiiying Alive!?The St. Louis Union of the 29th ult., relates an occurrence oT a Mr. Schneider, living near the corner of Carondelet Avenue and Lafatte street, who came very near being buried alive. It scums mui iYir. Schneider was seized with the cholera, and his friends presuming at a certain stage of the disease that he was dead, his body was at once transferred to n coffin and hurried oft* to the grave-yard. On reaching the cemetry last evening, and just as the coffin was on tho eve of being lowered into the ground, a knocking, was heard from the inside, which caused those 1 around the grave to remove the lid. Upon this being accomplished, Mr. Schneidcr was discovered to be nlive, and of course taken home. It is said thnt he is in a fair way of recovering his health entire. This should act as a warning to persons not to be so rapid in committing the bodies of their friends to the gravo after death /s supposed to have intervened. YVe fear thai this is not the only instance of the kind that has transpired since the epidemic has been raging in our midst. The Cincinnati Commercial of the 13th ultM relates as follows:? ' The body of a victim of cliglera. was placed fn the vauij of one of our grave yards, where.,it remained about 24 hours, when in presence of friends and relatives it was taken out for burial. Some of the relatives seSfe-SRQ? aWM va . of the corpse was found to be hideously dislorted~bis shroud lorn, and his fingers, which were between hia teeth, bitten and gnawed to the very bone I ,Tho respect aL;|!f ?nr I ftia a/m?

China and England.?The. New Yprk Herald of the 6th instant says:?If the 4t$ws recffiy^d by the steamship Canada is troe, we do not tee how a collision between the Chinese and English can he avoided. | Accord'ng to the treaty of peace entered E into between those natHins, the Chinese I were, aft?? a certain definod period, to I throw open the city of Cantab to foreigner?. That.' period hiis ex pi red, and nptwithjtn n d. ing the stimulation in this respect, the Chinese authori:i?s, it is said, refuse to abide W it. The great object of the war with '(^tfo^oa^the part of the British, was. to coriipel the Chinese to'throw open theii the treaty was made, tbts stipulation was inserted. It is not likely, therefore, that the, English will fcnbmit to its infraction.

The N. York Tribune translates an account from the Kolnische Zeiuing, a very moderate paper, of the 21st of June, the very latest received from Germany. It says :? The news vve have to-day received from the scene of war is extremely favorable for the cause of the Mugyars. The great bat.1t.-r . . - r i.c wo uuiuru conjectured would take place on the 14ih or fiftoenih of June, near Flochstrnes, is now said to have come off at that very place and time. A number of letters have reached us from Vienna, and all agree as to the following particulars:? "On the morning of June 14, there began along the whole line on the right bank of the Danube, frotp Wieselburg to the Lake of Neusiedl, a general batl'e between the armies of the Russians and Austriana there encamped, and the Magyars. The struggle was distinguished by unheard of fury on both sides, lasted sixty-four hours Without inlnrmnlin? ??'' ?J?1 ?:*L IV1I, anu CIIUCU Willi me most complete defeat of the imperial armies. Twenty-three thousand Austrians and Russians and eight thousand Hungarians lay dead on the battle-field. The imperial- f isis lost their whole artillery, and turning in wild disarray, fled in the direction of Vienna, followed by the holly pursuing Magyar hussars. On the Hungarian side Genef&l Anhur Gorgey and General Guyon commanded : the imperial forces were led by Lt. Field Marshal Hayman and the Rnssiwhich hi\s just reached us from Vienna, and another letter just shown us from a great banking house of the same city, is almost verbatim to the same purport. Our regular Vienna correspondent, hs well as our correspond tut at Presburg, from both of whom we have received letters up to the 16th, give us no news whatever in relation to this important battle, except that on the \ 14th the continuous roar of cannon was heard in the direction of Raab, and that the report < f a great defeat of the Imperialists was circulating at Vienna. YVe must. however, say in regard to this, llmt for some time past nil our letters from Presburg have been opened, and when they contained news unfavorable to the imperial causet suppressed. For this reason our correspondent writes with all possible caution, and for the most part forwards his lel'.ers by travellers, whereby they often da not reach, us until they have become old. According to the old and new details of intelligence which are before us, the 14th of June was fixed on as the day when operations should be opened on both sides. The plan of iho Hung?ri:in< hnrt for como diiys been^known to be by overwhelming attacks of cavalry on the two extreme wings, noar Oedenburg and Trentchin?-lo compel the imperialist lo break up their centre, and in this they seem lo have been perfectly sue crssiul. Whether the attack of Schlick's corps cast of Oedenburg, which turned out so badly for the Austrian?, were only tlm opening, or, as it were, the overture ofiho great buttle of which our Vienna letters speak, or whether the defeat of Schlick was only the cause of exaggerated reports ol a universal defeat, we shall know with certainty in a few days. \vua1 has tue.SoUTIZ gainr.d bv electing Gun Taylor.?This question is frcquently asked, but'it will probably take four t years to give the answer in full.
