In the course of the debate in the National
Assembly on foreign afTuirs Ministers declared
that there was no dangerjof war. M. do Toc

honorable members had expressed such jeal
ousy. n the course of his speech De Tpcquo
ville talked of the frankness of the Russian Go
eiinmenl an expression that was received with
shouts of derisive laughter. j
During the debate Gen. Cavaignac niade a
most important speech, which may be c'onsid
efed as the resume of the principles of that sec-
ptibn of the republican party which, while it de
sires peace, is prepared far war; whichi while
it; supports order, insists on progress?. He
said : I
; " I fully agree with the honorable gentleman
who has said that a great' country like France
should not remain in a 'state of insulation. It
yas necessary that we should get. out of that
position. It was essentia that we should from
ah alliance, with some Government ; hut the
question was, what Government? To whom
should ye address ourselves ? To Russia ?
To Austria? Those two Powers were engag
ed in struggles. We then made overtures to
a great Power, to England; and, in doing so,
I think we acted in conformity with the wishes
of the Constituent Assembly. It has been said
that the English Govejjrient only accepted
pbr alliance in order to be able the better to
watch us. Certainly England would -not bo
come our ally had it not been her interest so
to do ; but that interest is reciprocal; and, if
England has ian interest in watching France,
France has an equal one in watching her.
That reciprocal surveillance is the basis of all
alliance between Governments. In reply to
our application, England accepted our offers of
alliance, as she did, doubtless from awish to
preserve peace. I think that the explanation
1 have given will be a . sufficient reply to the
reproach m.ido againt us of giving rise to a
new cou'fiiiion. Hear, hear. ;
" Tho gallant General then stated that he
had his part in the responsibilities attached to
theorder of the day voted a month since by
the Constituent Assemblyvand explained that
in.his opinion the danger was in the reconstruc
tion of the Northern Powprs, and in the annihi
lation of French influence. It is against that
twofold eventuality (continued the honorable
gentleman) that I wish to guard the Govern
ment. I did not wish for war, and if I am a
partisan of peace, of honorable peace, it is be

AUSTRIA AND HUNGARY.
The 'great battle in Hungary reported by the
last arrivel to have taken place on the 13th,
14th, and 15th ultimo, turns out to be apocry
phal. At a subsequent date, however, there
was severe fighting, without any decisive re
sult, the victory being claimed by or on behalf
of both sides. The following are the latest ac
Vienna papers and letters of the 24th instant
state that the details of the last battles on the
Waag had not yet reached Vienna, though
It would appear that the result is the frustra
tion of a most obstinate attempt of the Hunga
rians to cross the Waag. On the morning of
the 20th instant they had actually got posses,
sion of the right bank of the river, but they
were eventually obliged to return to their for
mer positions. In the mean time, Gen. Gor
gey had come up with reinforcements, and the
Imperialist leader, Wohlgemuth, with his 15,
000 men, was reduced to the necessity of act
ing entirely on the defensive, until, upon the
arrival of Russian reinforcements, a fierce bat.
tie ensued, which continued till night parted the
combatants. The" fight recommenced on the
afternoon of the following day, and lasted
throughout till the evening, and the whole of
the next day. The Hungarians fought with
furious obstinacy, but they could not prevail
against the united Imperialist forces, and, after
a three days' battle, Gen. Gorgey was compell.
ed to lead the troops back upon Tarkashed,
Negyed, and Guta. He crossed the Waag at
the two first mentioned places, and finished by
destroying the bridge at Negyed. At Guta
the fugitive Hungarians made head against
their. Imperialist foes, and, being surrounded
by swamps on each side, and close to the for
tress of Comorn, it was found a matter of im
possibility to dislodge them,
Thelosses of the Hungarians and Imperial
ists were almost equal, viz. about 3,000 men
killed on either side. It is generally believed
that Gen. Gorgey, after - his retreat across the
Waag, fell back upon Comorn, and that his
headquarters are at present at Gouyo or Raab.
Several arrests have taken place at Prague
where the temper of the populace still remains

Trieste, June 10. Letters from Trebis
ondc confirm the taking of the Russian fortress
Mami, on the Black Sea, by the Circassians.
The garrison, consisting of 4,000 men, were
taken prisoners, with the exception of 1,000
who were put to death. The enemy also took
5,000 muskets and one hundred and fifty can
non, destroyed the most important points of the
fortress, and then encamped onneighboring
height, where a fresh encounter with the Rus
sians was expected.
Further advices from India, with dates from
Calcutta to May 8th, and Bombay the 21st,
have reached us. The two principal features
of interest this mail supplies are tho arrival of
Sir C. Napier at Calcutta on the 6th, and the
capture of Appa Sahib, the pretender to the
Nagpore throue, and the defeat of his troops,
afte a very brilliant affair, by Brigadier Hamp

From Vallay the accounts announce a com- j
plete victory by the Dutch. The Attack com
menced on the 13ih of April, and, after thirteen
hours hard fighting, all the fortifications were
taken, and the Netherland flag was hoisted
within the walls. Tho Vallans, it was said,
had 5,000 killed, and the' loss of the Dutch was
about 250. It is assumed that the island will
forthwith be annexed to the Dutch possessions.
We learn from China that the Emperor had
refused to carry out the stipulations cf the two
treaties which provided that Canton should be
open to foreigners. In the communication of
Seu, the Governor of Cauton, to Mr. Bonham,
he says the Emperor had determined that, as
the people of Canton bad refused to receive
foreigners into the town, how can he force an
opposite course to the people ? From the na
ture of the proclamation it is quite plain that
the authorities were prepared to resist the en
trance of the foreigners into the city. But a
great sacrifice of human blood had been avoid
ded, by Lord Palmerston having given special
direction that nothing more should be done
than to report tho repudiation of the treaty to

consist of a hollow wooden wheel, four
teen feet in diameter and six feet wide.
The horses are placed inside, and propel
it along in the same manner, that a caged
squirrel makes its wheel to revolve. Slats
are nailed on the inside floor of the wheel,
by which the horses obtain footholds. In
the centre is a small iron shaft, from which
depend hangers which support four com
fortable sofas for passengers ; the wheel
thus revolves freely, the scats remaining
in perfect equilibrium. The arrangement
for guiding the carriage is very simple
and effective ; it can make a much short
er turn than a stagecoach. A very suc
cessful trial of one of these carriages was
recently made, on the State road, between
Canal Dover and New Philadelphia, Tus
carawas county, Ohio, which perfectly
demonstrated their utility in transporting
very heavy loads with ease and rapidityj
The carriage was filled with a party of
21 ladies and gentlemen, with two heavy
draught horses, previously trained to pro-
pel them. The distance between the two
places, five miles, performed in 23 min
utes on, the first trip, and 25 minutes on
the second. The horses are not confined
by harness, and they travel as it were on
an endless plank road ; their work is com
paratively easy. Cleveland Herald.
YOUNG MEN HELP YOURSELVES.
" Providence," we are told, " helps those
who help themselves." A Iruo proverb, and
worthy to be stamped on every heart. Passing
on through life, you will find many a stream
that will cross your path but don't sit down,
and mourn. If you can't wade across, throw
a stone to stand upon, or bring forth a dead
tree from the forest, and you will soon make
a bridge and be safe on the opposite side.
To-day you are opposed in your project.
Don't stop don't go bark meet the opposer
persevere and you wiil conquer Providence
will assist you. You have tailed in business
come out from under the toad itool of despon
dency and try again. Zounds! if you don't
help yourself and persevere you will do nothing,
and be punched at by every beggar and every
pauper on crutches, who passes along. Your
fiiends have died, bury them but don't linger
in the church yard mourning because they are
going and you may go next. Up with you;'
I wipe off four tears and be happy 'tis the on
1 ly way.
I In fine help yourselves in all places ; at all
'times; and Providence will assist you, tnd ,
