The elect!ons in Fratice;had caused much  Excitement and some disorder.- .A despatch  ifrpm Parisy May 25tb, states that the elections���������  -for the. Corps Legislatif resulted as follows :  -Goverhmen.t can didates ele cted,��������� .103;- opp o-  Isition candidates elected,; 90. The number  |of .the opposition party, in the last Corps Le-  lgislalif;was 45.  L,.:T.lie.:. Austrian. Consul:at Leghorn, while  .walking with Colonel.:Grehville. .was killed  -by an assassin. Colonel Grenviile was  .wounded.  X Sir Francis Head, formerly Governor-Gon-  eral.pf Capada, has sent a letter to the Times  enclosing'his correspondence with Secretary  May, arising out ofthe Canadian-rebellion of  !$f87^^ '.. the vljnited;  Stales was wrong, and' that England has a  dominant claim for apology, and'compensation. Sir Francis has also communicated  several additional official documents to* prove  that; assistance had been extended by the  United States to the Canadian revolt of 1837.  lie asserts in his letters accompanying these  documents that Sttmoer*. language applies to  that case equally as well as to the case ofthe  Alabama, but the English Government had  never claimed indemnity.  Lord Stanley says the idea pt waiting for  further expressions from Parliament and Congress commits the- Alabama business to indefinite postponement. England's sentiment  has been duly pronounced, and is stili pronounced, to submit to a proper tribunal all  tbequestibns of wrongs and damages, but  any-attempt to re-open the controversy on  preposterous grounds, whatever American  sentiment may be. is absurd.- From this position England cannot recede.  The; American filibusters continue to land  in Cuba to fight against the lawful go vera-  ment-arid assist jtihe rebels.^ ��������� Several hundred  wrrefceWy disembai-keain the Bay of Nipe.  Captain Mosco attacked''them with 120 men,  stormed one house and captured a flag, but  was finally obliged to refcreat.his ammunition  giving out. The filibusters lost Skilled-and  160 wounded; the Spanish had four killed.  Four steamers with.troops have sailed for the  Bay of Nipe. Captain Carlisle and others of  the steamer Sau Salvador have arrived at Key  West from Nassau ; they report the successful landing, of troops and ammunition ������������������in  Cuba. It is reported 'thata Cuban expedition  numbering .500 have gone-to sea from Delaware Bay, in two schopciers: and a small  steamer.  Four vessels had arrived at New:York with  $& small-pox on, board.; The vessels were  quarantined.  Advices from the plains are of a character  to cause fear of trouble .with.the Indians; It  >sexpected that the prompt arrival of supplies may prevent au outbreak.  In the rreshyterian Assembly held in Now  ��������� wk a considerable dHcu^ioaarose iu refer-  A  ence to outrages on the Chinese in California.  Elder Huber. of California, said the matter  bad been greatly exaggerated/and was by no  means a matter deserving of interference on  have posted up a notice threatening death to  any. who' descended a shaft to work the mine.  An invoice of Japan tea had been received  at Si*. Louis, via the Union Pacific Railroad,  20 days frafe^qkahama.  . Many TV'hite^i^rs. are returning daily.  They generally concur in asserting the thing  is overdone there. No regular leads have  been found and real estate is rapidly declin-  The. Chicago Tribune's special says the  Cabinet is considering the question of England's belligerency as set-forth in Sumner's  speech witb much care. General Butler has  called iattentron*to the fact that the Supreme  Courts had actually recognised the ���������belligerency: of. the' South prior to the Queen's pro-  claniatibn. Several Senators are said to appear to think that the action of the Senate  was rather precipitate in rejecting the John-  son-Stanley; treaty, and_were the case again  before them they would do otherwise.  News received in Washington from Gen;  Cespedes by the Cubans fully confirms the  defeat of the Spaniards in attempting to open  thc railroad to Puerto Principe. The loss of  the Spaniards was 100 killed and wounded.  The Cuban force was 1500 under Quisada,  land.the.Spaniards nnmberetHtb^-samei^Yrre  Cghting was the severest during the war.  The battle was decided by the arrival of the  Marquis Santa Luco with 400 men. a large  number of whom were mounted. Of 5,0.00  colored troops, 400 shot their officers and  joined the Cubans.  A Herald*s special from Havana says 3000  filibusters landed near Gibraltar. There was  a fight with the troops on shore; the Spanish  captured two cannon and lost 35 men ; the  insnrgents lost 80 in killed and w pun der |  Tho result is unknown. Fighting is reported"  near Trinidad and Cicnfncgos' with heavy  loss and appalling atrocity on both sides.  A Madrid despatch has been received announcing that about 2000 adherents of Queen  Isabella, under Gazetti and Pbcsuela, have  assembled at Perhignan, a French city on the  Spanish frontier. At last accounts they-were  nearly ready to cross the border. The Government has taken steps to prevent such an  invasion.  A new and duplicate cable to connect  London with Valencia has been completed.  It-will be used solely for the transmission of  'cW/e'busin.s3.',''>''  Hongkong advices to the ,23th of April  are received. .Placards had been posted  throughout the - Empire; denouncing the  Christians and missionaries in violent terms.  It is rumored that a Chinese ofiicer of high  rarilc-in Pekin in a fit of anger slapped the  French "Ambassador, Count de Larrbnde,  and the flag of the French Legation had been  hauled down in consequence of the outrage.  Th*fe Chinese Government is very uneasy in  view ofthe possible result of the insult!  Fears are entertained by the Chinese  Government of further- encroachments on  C hincse territory by the Russians.-  '��������� It is reported that the Spanish Government  will soon issue a decree requesting that all  citizens of the realm or colonies, residing in  foreign countries, who own property in  On ba,' shall register their names within a  sta ted p e r io d Vi t. li I li o n ear es t c o ns u I a n cl  t ake th c o a th of all eg 1 a n c e to the- m o ih e r  country, otherwise all such property will be  liable to -solau re.  -  -.        fiyfff  ;^E\V.

The Fire Brigade turned; out and, after considerable pxertiori, managed with the assistance of the miners to save the mining machinery and shaft houses. Five cabins, however, were burned down, Two horses were  caught in the fire and burned. One of them,  " Shad," belonged to Mr R, Brown, of the  Coombs co,. and was a splendid animal, Mr  Brown bad bought it a short time ago, and  paid for it, $300, on the morning of the day  oh. which it was burned. The other belonged  to Mr Wickham. and was conspicuous in the  races on the 24th ult. as u Billy Mulligan.'*  The animals had been turned out in the morning. Some anxiety prevailed in Barkerville  in consequence of. the proximity of a considerable amount ot powder stored in a cabin  on the right bank of Wi 1 linnt creek, and i t  was taken from the cabin and buried among  a heap.of tailings, where it is safe.
