FILVNCE General Cavaignac, and M. Bastide, the Minister for Fovci; Affairs, presented themselves on Friday to the Committee on Foreign Affairs. They 'were first requested to t xnlain the object of the mediation between Austria and Kill"- Charles Albert. General Cavaignac refused to enter :lt() any explanation. The will of the Assembly would over be the rule of his conduct. He would ever act for the interest of France and for her honour and dignity. He .irmly expected to be able to maintain peace in concert with Great Britain, and would not declare war except at the last extremity. Some members of the Committee having de- manded the documents, General Cavaignac refused. On Saturday, Marrast informed the Assembly that the documents relative to the inquiry into the events of June, .vere so voluminous that their publication could not take olace before Wednesday or Thursday. The discussion illight consequently be fixed for Monday week. M. Louis iilanc insisted on the publication of all the documents without exception. M. Ledru llollin made a similar request, aud called for those already printed. M. Marrast replied that they should be communicated to him and his two co- accused, MM. Louis Blanc and Caussidiere. The President read a letter from M. Afire, brother to the late Archbishop of Paris, who begged to be authorised to abstain from the de- bates on the inquiry from motives of nciute covenance. The eight military commissions, daily sitting and deciding on the fate of the 9^000 insurgents imprisoned in the gaols and forts in Paris, have already decided the fate of 2,718 of the accused. Of these, 1,398 have been set at liberty, 1,206 have been transported, and 116 of the most deeply impli- cated, have been ordered to be tried by courts-martial. It appears from the weekly account published by the Bank of France, that its stock of bullion has increased within the week by 7,000,000f. ( £ 280,000), whilst its notes in circula- tion have diminished to nearly an equal amount. The amount of the commercial bills under protest has decreased by about 1,000,000f. ( £ 40,000). And the balance to the credit of the Treasury has decreased by a sum of 3,000.0001' of £ 120,000. The effective force of the army was fixed, previous to the Revolution, at 342,767 men, which has been inereased, within the last three months, by 179,360 men, and conse- quently, at this moment, it amounts to 522,127 men.
