WE are in possession of Mr. HARPER TWELVETREES' di- rections for economical and expeditious washing, and are glad to observe that his method of cleansing white clothes is quite consis- tent with natural and chemical principles. Many of the wonder-work- ing recipes, by which empirics and swindlers cajole and deceive the ignorant, expose their own deceptiveness to a well-informed person who comes to know them. When one proposes to accomplish a cer- tain end, and suggests means for its accomplishment wholly inade- quate, we may feel assured that the pretended discovery is an hum- bug, and its propagator for value received a cheat. Such are nine- tenths of the patented follies vended by the rogues to the fools. But such is not Mr. Twelvetrees' art of economical and expedi- tious washing. Let his little book of directions be placed in the hands of any chemist, or even in the hands of a person of experi- ence and observation in natural phenomena, and he would say at ouee, this method will cleanse and whiten the clothes." The materials to be employed, and th method. of employing them, would be quite satisfactory, without the testimonials of those who have tried the recipe. But appended to this little book are the tatcmcuts of some twenty persons, who declare it most satisfactory allri effectual. We could add similar testimonials from various parts in this island. It is especially valuable to the poor man. The benefits to be derived from this new mode of washing are money, tima. labour, and trouble saving. The cost of a week's wash to a family will not exceed 6d. The time required, say one hour and a half; and then, as to hard labour over the wash-tub, th" splashing, dabbling, and flooding the kitchen, to the great an novanee of the family, are dispensed with. upon the whole, we have no hesitancy in recommending Mr. Twelvetrees' discovery to the attention of the public not doubting they will find it, as others have done on trial, a sure, economical, and expeditious method of washing all white clothes, consisting of liuon and cotton.—Leading article in the Isle of Man Times, Feb. 21, ISiS.

FRANCE. THE NEW CABINET. The formation of the new Cabinet is completed, and was officially announced to the Assembly on Saturday by M. OdilonBarrot. The following is the composition of the new Cabinet:— M. ODILON BARROT Justice. M. PASSY Finances. M. DE F AL;LOUX Public Instruction. General RULHIERES War. M. DB TRACY Marine. M. LACROSSE Public Works. The above, it will be seen, were all members of the late Ca- binet, The new ministers are :— M. DUFAURE Interior (in the place of M. Leoh Faucher). M. DETOCQUEVILLE Foreign Affairs (in place of M. Drouyn de L'huys). M. LAJUINAIS Agriculture and Commerce (in place of M. Buffet). Marshal Bugeaud refused to enter the Cabinet unless the command of the National Guards were separated from that of the army, but the President, or rather M. de Falloux, refused to diminish by one jot or tittle the power of the Legitimist General Changarnier, and M. Bugeaud, consequently, does not enter the Cabinet. The department of Foreign Affairs has been refused both by General Bedeau and M. de Remusat, the Ro- man question being the difficulty with each. It is said that M. de Falloux has completely succeeded in his intrigue as far as the affairs of Rome are concerned, and that General Oudinot has been ordered to force his way into Rome, and to restore the priestly domination without delay. The President's message (which has been drawn up by MM. Thiers and Mole) is to be delivered to-day. M. Dupin was on Saturday inaugurated as President of the Legislative Assembly. The following is the report of the proceedings at the opening of the Assembly :— M. de Keratry rose and said :—Gentlemen Representatives of the Republic, the honourable selections which you made in yester- day's sitting have led me to desire, even more ardently than be- fore, that the moment should arrive when I might be permitted to resign my temporary functions into hands of persons more firm, more able, and more exercised than I am (a voice on the left- And more impartial). I have acted according to the measure of the strength which Providence has conferred upon me (appro- bation on the right; ironical laughter on the left). God forbid that I should presume to lay down any programme, or trace out any line of conduct in the presence of an Assembly on the benches of which are seated able men, accustomed to business, who have arrived at the highest grades of the civil and military orders, and been honoured over and over again by the confidence of their fellow citizens (murmurs on the left). Certainly, I should never dream of any such presumption. As to you Monsieur le President, and you, gentlemen secretaries, I have not the slightest doubt that you will worthily answer the expectations of your country, which now calls you by my voice to this chair, and to these seats of honour they cannot be more fitly occupied. This noble Chamber (loud excla- mation on the left). A voice from the same quarter We are not now in the Cham- ber of Peers. M. de Keratry: This noble Chamber by which you have been selected by a majority almost unanimous (interruption), has for pledge your character and the sentiments in which it intends itself persisting. I have now to call on the members of the defini- tive bureau to come forward and take their places (hear, hear). M. Dupin, sen., then ascended the steps leading to the estrade, followed by the members of the bureau. The honourable gentle- man wore his distinctive ribbon of a representative of the people, and near it the large crachat of a grand cross of the Legion of Honour. The two Presidents interchanged the customary acco- lade, after which M. de Keratry and the provisional secretaries withdrew, the new comers assuming their places. M. Dupin, sen., then, after taking the chair, rose and Raid Gentlemen and honourable colleagues, in displacing in the chair our honourable senior representative, who has fulfilled his difficult functions with so much devoted (interruption), I cannot help making a preliminary reflection. The office of President of the National Assembly is not merely an immense honour, it is a charge imposing most heavy duties, always difficult to be fulfilled, but particularly so at the period in which we live. As a man belonging to the law, I should wish to behold order reigning everywhere, and the regulations always observed with fidelity (hear). Independently of the general law which prevails outside, and is obligatory on us as on all other citizens, each Assembly baa its own peculiar laws, the regulations which it imposes on itself, and by which it contracts the obligation to obey itself. The existing regulations, the violation of which always leads to dis- order, and the strict and impartial execution of which is confided to the President, will immediately call for your attention, in order to decide what modifications experience has shown to be necessary. However the Assembly may decide the point, I shall endeavour at present, with all the firmness I possess, to have them strictly observed, and I will employ all the force which I possess to main- tain them during the continuance, fortunately exceedingly short, of my laborious function (a voice on the left, We hope so "). The tribune, gentlemen, ought to be free-free for all the mi- nority has an interest in such being the case even more than the majority. Both sides must consequently learn to listen with calm, even to what may be displeasing-to express ourselves with con- sideration for others, and to submit atterwards with resignation to votes which acquire the character of law, and consequently are invested with all the force of national sovereignty. Gentlemen and honourable colleagues, the acts of this legislative Assembly must powerfully influence the destinies of the country. Consti- tuted as we are as a Republic, let us not. forget the union of the great powers of the state (loud interruption 011 the left). A voice from the same quarter There is only one at present. M. Dupin, sen., in continuation Is one of the first guarantees of public ti-itrquillity- A voice on the left What do you mean by your great powers ? M. liupin, sen. I call so those powers which have been elected by universal suffrnge, and and which emanate directly from the sovereignty of the people (hear, hear). Let us not lose sight of these two facts, which are alike certain—the Republic must reassure all interests and rights which may be menaced but also factions must not be permitted to attack or menace the Republic (murmurs on the left). Thus, then, may Providence be our aid. Vive la Republiqne This cry was repeated loudly from every part of the Assembly. The following official note appears in the ilIoniteur de Soir and the I'ati-ie: Tile National, in an article entitled" Affaires Italiennes,' affirms that the personal policy of the President of the French republic seems to tend to complicate the events which are being accomplished, in the Peninsula, and in support of this affirmation announces that an emissary of the President has recently been sent off to the French camp, with secret instruc- tions calculated to counteract the too liberal tendencies of M. Lesseps. These assertions are false and calumnious. We are authorised to contr idict them in the most formal manner." The following is the final result of the election for Algeria:- MM. Henry Didier, Emile Barrault, and de Ilance are elected. M. Emile de Girardin has failed."
FRANKFORT. ADJOURNMENT OF THE ASSEMBLY TO STUTTGARDT. The National German Assembly of Frankfort resolved, on the 30th ult., by 74 votes to 64, that it would remove to Stutt- gardt. This resolution was taken after a long and grave debate. The President of the Assembly, M. Reh, and two of the secre- taries immediately resigned. The first Vice-President, how- ever, M. Leewe, announced that he would cause the decree of the Assembly to be executed. All the Wurtemburger Depu- ties, to the surprise of the Assembly, voted against the removal to their capital. The vote was received with most profound silence. The Independance of Brussels says—" This will be the last sitting held at Frankfort, and the last sitting of the National Assembly for at Stuttgardt there will only be the meeting of a party, and it may happen that not one hundred members, the number strictly necessary to take a resolution, will attend. The Assembly has given itself the coup de grace. Its resolution may draw down serious calamities on Wurtem- burg, and it is not likely that the Wurtemburger Government will approve of it. The Oberpostamts Zeitung publishes the following letter:- In answer to the telegraphic dispatches from Berlin of the 18th and 23rd instant, I have received his highness the Regent's instructions. I am peremptorily instructed to inform you that his highness is indeed resolved to resign his office, but that, as to the time of that resignation, his highness is equally resolved to consult no other interests than those of Germany. His highness the Regent protests that no power on earth is competent to remove him from his post. GRAEVULL. Frankfort, 24th May. To the Prussian Plenipotentiary, M. Kamptz."
DENMARK AND THE DUCHIES. The Constituent Assembly of Denmark adopted on the 26th ultimo, by 119 votes to 4, a new constitution for the kingdom, The fortress of Frederica has not been bombarded since the 24th ult., but some heavy artillery is expected to join the blockading army from Rendsburg. While rumours of peace are pouring in from all directions, the Regency of Schleswig- Holstein continue raising recruits in the Duchies, and addino- to their means of defence. It appears they are determined, in case the German troops should leave, to carry on the war On their own account. We have received, says the Sun, our Hamburgh correspon- dence of the 1st inst. We learn from them that the Kiel pa- pers are rather excited by an English commander (of the war- steamer Hecate) having been fired at by the German batteries of Friedrichsort, near that harbour, for having neglected to salute the German flag. The matter passed off without any more serious consequences than the invective and angry decla- mations of the press and populace of Kiel. All remained quiet at Fredericia in fact, the military ope- rations in Jutland have come to a complete stand still. The news from Copenhagen is of the 31st ult. The King of Denmark arrived there on that day to wait for his guests from St. Petersburgh. The Nyeborg papers mention that some Rus- sian land troops, too, are expected, and that quarters are beins prepared for them. 1
ITALY. It appears that M. de Lesseps left Rome on the 24th, for the head quarters of General Oudinot. Before his departure he wrote a letter to the President of the Roman Constituent Assembly, complaining that he had been pointed out already for the daggers of assassins," and offering to guarantee, against all foreign invasion, every portion of the Roman territory which might be occupied by French troops. The French National, in commenting on this strange letter, does not hesitate to declare that M. de Lesseps must have been labouring under temporary ) insanity at the time he wrote it. The idea that he had already been pointed out for the daggers of assassins, being too absurd to be entertained by any man in his right senses. The Roman ll-Ionitorc of the 24th announces that Captain Dobrowloski, of the general staff, is commissioned to organise j and command the foreign legion now forming. Two hundred Tuscans had arrived at Rome, to serve under the Republic; many Piedmontese tirailleurs have deserted, with arms and baggage, for the same purpose. French subjects were daily dropping in with the same view. The French troops were peacefully encamped in the vicinity of Rome, and did not inters cept the communications. The Milan Gazette of the 28th publishes the following tele- graphic dispatch, dated from Mestre, 27th ult. Malghera has fallen, and is occupied by our troops." General D'Aspre has addressed the following proclamation to the inhabitants of Florence Inhabitants of Florence !-The ties of blood that unite your sovereign to the imperial house of my Monarch, the numerous treaties which impose upon his Majesty the Emperor and King my master the duty of protecting the integrity of Tuscany, and of defending the rights of your Prince, have determined Austria to comply with the wish of his Imperial aud Royal Highness the Grand. and tn pnK an *,1—, auttrirny unuer which your beautiful country has long been groaning. The faction which oppressed Leghorn has been destroyed by my arms and the population, free from the yoke of rebel hordes, has submitted to its legitimate Sovereign. Being called by your Prince, I now enter your city with my troops, as your friend, as your ally. Join with me in consolidating tranquillity, peace, and order, and per- manently restoring concord, the empire of the laws, and those days of happiness for which you were formerly envied by Europe. The Imperial and Royal General of Artillery commanding the second army corps, "BARON D'ASPRE. r Empoli, May 24, 1849." | Letters from Florence of the 25th announce the arrival there of the Austrian troops on that day 2'),000 are expected, but only 6,000 will stay the rest will march towards the Roman States. A rumour was current that the British Ambassador had applied to the Extraordinary Commissioner, that Guerrazzi might be delivered up to him. Another rumour stated that a French corps had landed at Porto San Stefano. The new Duke of Parma has published a proclamation to his subjects, in which, after observing that in virtue of his father's abdication by the manifesto of Weisstrop, dated the 14th of March last, he assumes the sovereignty of Parma, under the name of Charles III. of Bourbon, he confirms for the pre- sent the Military Provisional Government instituted by his father, and promises to grant a constitution. The Parma Gazette of the 23rd announces the nomination of Baron Soldati as Minister of Finance. Marquis Pallavicini is named Extra- ordinary Commissioner for Piacenza RE-ESTABLISHMENT OF THE PAPAL GOVERNMENT.—Letters from Bologna, dated the 26th ult., state that on that day the Pontifical Commissioner, Bedini, published a proclamation to the inhabitants, announcing the re-establishment of the Ponti- fical Government there and in the Legations, and annulling all that has taken place in the Roman States since the 17th of November last. ————
AMERICA. Canada continues undisturbed by factious violence. Tele- graphic intelligence from Montreal, under date the 21st ult. announces that an address had been presented to his Excellency Lord Elgin in favour of removing the seat of Government to Quebec and Toronto, four years alternately, the majority on the division being five votes. The city of Montreal is tranquil. The business of legislation proceeded with tranquillity. Lady Elgin had been confined of a son. Mr. Cayley had been deputed by the Tories to represent their cause in London, and Mr. Hincks, who arrived by the last steamer, was reported to be the destined advocate of the Minis- terial policy. The University Bill had passed the Lower House. From the United States the political intelligence is interest- ing. It was reported that Captain Charles Wilkes, of the late exploring expedition, will be sent out as commander of one of the vessels to he despatched in search nf !o\I. John ];1,.1; The admission of California as a state next session was con- sidered probable. It was rumoured that the President would lay Mr. Labou- chere's bills for the repeal of the Navigation-laws before Con- gress as a proper subject for legislation. The cholera continued its ravages. General Worth had fallen a victim to the epidemic. The steamer United States, previously sold to the Prussian Government, had been detained on the ground of neutrality by order of the United States' Cabinet. If, however, the Prussian Minister would engage under security that the ships should not interfere with Denmark, the prohibition would be with- drawn. At St. Louis, the great capital of the south-west, a most dis- astrous fire on the 18th ult. swept over the principal business portion of the city, extending for nearly a mile along the Mis- sissippi, and consuming; goods, warehouses, and steamboats—27 of the latter, several of them with cargoes on board-to the value, as estimated, of between 4,000,000 and 5.000,000 dollars. A serious collision had occurred on the Hudson river, by which a number of persons were drowned. The city of New Orleans, after being for some time afflicted with cholera, which swept away many of its citizens, is now threatened with even a more fearful and irresistible foe in the overwhelming waters of the Mississippi. Venezuelan affairs were in confusion. From California the accounts are twenty-two days later. The advices are important. According to one account the Cali- fornians refused to recognize General Smith, who was sent out as a military governor of the territory, and had taken steps to organise a government for themselves.
THE SABBATH IN FRANCE. A. circular has j"= £ hppn issued hy M. de Lacrosse, the Minister of the Interior, to all the agents of the Establishments under government, commanding them to give their workmen a weekly day of rest, he assigning as his reason, that he wishes the workmen to have time to observe the duties of their religion, and secure to them one day in every seven for the sweets of domestic intercourse. The democratic notions current in France preven; the government from issuing a similar order for the whole kingdom. This subject is looked upon in France as a matter of individual conscience, and any such order on the part of the government would be considered in the light of an infringement of the liberty of the subject.
THE FRENCH CLERGY AND THE RUCEKT ELECTIONS. In one of the Departments of the South (Tarn), a country cure, after mass, delivered a sermon from the pulpit, with a view to influence the voters at the elections. My dear bre- thren," he said, on Sunday next we all have an important duty to fulfil. At the present time, there are two parties who con- tend for success in the elections -the party of order, and the party of disorder. Whoever wishes to be an honest man, has no choice betweea these two parties. We must all, therefore, consider it our duty to vote for tht) friends of order, that we may prevent our country from being delivered into the hands of Revolutionists, who, for the last sixty years, and particularly during the months of February, March, April, May, and June, last year, have been desolating society. We have, in this De- partment, a very respectable list. It has been unanimously approved by persons of distinction in all the cantons of the Department. This list is also recommended by the President of the Republic." The cures, attended by their vicaires, ap- peared on the day of election at the place appointed for taking votes, and as the peasants came forward, they made them show their voting tickets, which they tore, if they did not find in them the names approved by the clergy, and replaced them by the orthodox list. One of these cures, while hearing a peasant confess, asked him before granting him absolution, the names of the candidates for whom he intended to vote. The peasant having mentioned some names hostile to the projects of a pretender of the eldest branch of the Bourbons, the cure gave him another list, and, upon his refusal to make use of it, left him, saying, Well, then, I will not absolve you." The peasant left the confessional without having received absolution, and acquainted a man of some influence in that part of the country with this scandalous circumstance. The latter pro- ceeded to the salle des elections, and, having seen the cure in the crowd, questioned him whether it was true that he had refused absolution to a man who would not vote according to his dictation. The cure, abashed at seeing himself exposed before a large assembly, hastened away, in order to escape general indignation. ———-
BADEN, BAVARIA, AND THE PALATINATE. An immense popular meeting was held at Rentlingen, in Wurtemburg, on the 28th ult., at which very strong resolu- tions, calling on the people to arm against Prussia, and on the Wurtemburger Government to support the insurrection in Baden, &c., &c., were adopted. On the next day the Munici- pal Council of Stuttgardt pretested against the violence of these resolutions. The Carlsruhe Gazette of the 31st, the official organ of the Provisional Government of Baden, contains an earnest appeal to the French to march to the assistance of the German insur- gents. ———-
AUSTRIA AND HUNGARY. FALL OF BUDA. The correspondent of the Times (Friday), writing from Vi- enna on the 16th, says in his usual depreciatory tone as regards the Hungarians Since my letter of yesterday our papers have brought us no news whatever of importance. Our disas- ters we only learn through private channels our successes, of a very questionable description, are duly made public. Thus, though the fall of Buda has not been made known to the pub- lic, I can assure you that it has been in the hands of the Mag- yars since either the 21st or 22nd inst. It appears that the garrison was composed partly of soldiers of the 4 Ceccopieri' regiment (Italians), and they, with some few Poles, proved traitors to their gallant commander. It is supposed that all the Croats in the fortress, amounting to some 500 or 600, were put to the sword. General Ileutze fell alive, though covered with wounds, into the hands of his enemies. This news, even though it may not find its way into our papers for some days, may be depended on. About twenty Hungarian nobles have issued an address to their fellow countrymen, calling upon them to form volunteer corps to assist the Imperial Government in its endeavours to put an end to Kossuth's nefarious plans. The address is in itself a tacit reproach to those who drew it up, as the following extract will show:—' The well-disposed have found a hun- dred excuses for not stirring in the business, and are not ashamed to owe their deliverance from Kossuth's yoke to a foreign Power. They have forgotten the old saying that' he that will reap must also sow.' To assist in some way, be it directly or indirectly, in putting down a destructive faction, is dictated as well by duty as by honour.' The municipality of Presburgh has also taken up the matter warmly, and it has been determined to raise and to fit out a corps of riflemen at the expense of the city. Every volunteer is to receive thirty florins (£3), after having taken what is here called the flag oath." The German Reform has letters from Vienna of the 27th ult., which state that great sensation had been created in the latter city by the unexpected arrival of Count Appony, of the Aus- trian Embassy in Paris, owing, as was supposed, to declarations on the Russian intervention made to him by the Minister of Foreign Affairs. The Italians, to the number of 600, who formed part of the Imperialist garrison of Buda, have gone over to the Hungarians. The Cologne Gazette has a letter from Kapolna, of the 22nd, which says that after advancing to within a few leagues of Cormorn, the Russians had suddenly retired that a part of their forces had taken the road to Poland, while another part had gone towards Transylvania; so that only 30,000 remained to assist the Austrians. We find no confirmation of this in any other journal, and it is probably unfounded. The Ostdeutsche Post states that the Russians entered Czerno- witz on the 19th ultimo. The Russians have taken upon themselves the administration of the police and the posts in Gallicia and the Bukowina. The Kolner Zeitung has advices from Vienna of the 30th ult., stating that letters have come to that city from the captive officers of the late garrison of Buda. It appears from these letters that these captive officers are treated with great kind- ness. Gen. Hentzi was buried with all military honours. The Hungarians took about 60,01)0 florins in silver, which were kept at Buda. The garrison of 2,OOIl men, and 80 officers, was con- veyed to Debrezin. 83 pieces of artillery, 1,400 cwt. of gun- powder, 2,000 cwt. of saltpetre, and 14,000 muskets, fell into the hands of the Hungarians after the capture of Buda.
PRUSSIA. The Governments of Prussia, Saxony, and Hanover, having agreed in the scheme of a ConStltutlOll, have also established a Provisional Court of the Confederation (or Bundes-Schieds- gerichtj for the judicial decision of all questions that may arise before the final settlement of the Constitution between the Powers who are parties to it. This court is to consist of Imperial judges (or Bundes-Richtern), of whom Prussia ap- points three, Saxony two, and Hanover two. The court is to hold its sittings at Erfurt; the presidency is to be filled by the oldest of the members appointed by Prussia. The States, united by the Constitution of the Bund, agree to subject them- selves to the court in the following cases:- 1. In questions of disputes respecting public and private rights of all kinds between the confederated states. >, 2. Disputes as to succession to the throne, rights of gov-ern ing and regency within the same states. 3. Disputes between the government of either of the confeder- ated states and its people, as to the validity of the constitution. 4. Complaints of the subjects of either of the confederated states against the governments, of suspensions of the constitution, or alterations in it, contrary to its provisions. Complaints of vio- lation of the constitution on the part of the subjects of either of the st des can only be brought before the court of appeal when the con- stitunon of the country itself contains no meatis of procuring a remedy for the grievance. "5. Com plaints of refused or obstructed right, when all legal remedies afforded by the laws of the land are exhausted. 6. Complaints against the ministers of the several confederated states, as far as they affect their official responsibility, and the laws of the land are not competent to judge them. 7. Complaints against the confederated states when the duty of fulfilling claims between them is doubtful or disputed; also when a duty exercised in general towards one state is to be made imperative." .I The decree creating the court is preceded by an expla- nation signed by the ministry, from which the following is an extract:— From the earliest history of Germany we find that the exist- ence of such a superior court was necessary for the whole German people. It is especially necessary for the smaller states, in which legislation interferes so much with all private relations. The judicial power of the emperor in former centuries was calculated to exercise a direct influence over the character of the nation. In our times an institution of a similar kind may serve to establish a I uniformity of legislation in the different states and to equalise the proceedings of the law. From these considerations the confederated governments re- gard the institution of an imperial court, as defined by the project of the German constitution, as most necessary and beneficial, aud have resolved to establish a provisional court of the confederation as a preliminary step to such a great national institution, The project which is here annexed contains the agreement which has been come to between the governments with regard to the immediate establishment of this tribunal. They have considered this question as connected with but few difficulties, as it was not necessary to refer it to the legislation-, N one will be compelled to appeal to this court only the government and the princes will have to recognise it. But they, in recognis- ing it, will prove that they regard public safety not merely j founded on order, but on the moral basis of right. In adhering strictly to the articles of the project of the con- stitution, the government will, moreover, give a proof that it is their sincere desire to put the constitution iuto operation as soon as possible. If the governments have asserted the condition that every one who requires assistance is to apply to this court, they believe that this will likewise meet with approbation. They entertain the confidence that all German governments will take the same view of this important subject, and hope that they will find this condi- tion the best means for the promotion of union, on which will depend the future prosperity of Germany. The President of the ministry, "COUNT VON BRANDENBURG. Berlin, May 30, 1849."
