THE NEWS FROM .EUROPE AND INDIA , By the Persia, which arrived at New York on Cbriatmas Day, we have news from Rag land to the 12th instant, inclusive. Parlia menehaving passed the Bank Iridemnity Bill, was on the eve of being adjourned until February, giving Lord PALUERRTON six weeks longer for framing his promised mea sure of Parliamentary Reform. There seems to be a general impression that it will not please any party, for Lord f i ALSIERSTON, how ever liberal his foreign' policy may occasion ally have been, started in public life as a Tory, served his first twenty - four years of official life 'under such unmitigated Tories as SPENCER Pru e/VAN Lord LIVERPOOL, Lord Goncatou, and the Duke of Wellington, and is as aristocratic in his principles and feelings as even his rival, the Earl of Derby. What manner of Reform his bill may be can be surmised when we say that ho has always voted against Vote by Ballot. • He, committed to a promise of amending and extending the Reform Bill of 1832, not because he has any belief in the propriety and necessity of extending the elec. tire franchise, hut because Lord Jose( Hue sca—another mock-refornier—would have bid for popularity, over his head, by proposing such a measure, if he bad not. Lord Joint, with as much gravity as if ho wore in- earliesti has again introduced a bill (to be feiwardthl and discussed when Parlia 'ment- re-assembleso to admit Jews to sit In Parliament, by altering MI - abjuration oath, by omitting the words the true faith of a Christian." Exactly . ten , years ago,- ho brought in 'a similar' bill, with a certainty of its being rejected in the House of Loy& At that time, he was Premier, with a large ma jority at his back in the COmmons, and, had he wished to see Baron ROVISCHILD take his seat, could readily have ended it by a reso lution of the House permitting him—as is - done in Courts of Justice—to take the oath which was binding on his conscience. He went the round-about way, in which ho must have been defeated, as the Lords will never pass the bill. But as it Is the right of each souse to decide on its own forms, the mere Resolution would have sufficed, as it did in the case of the Quakers, who, by simple vote of the House, are allowed to sit on making a solemn affirmation instead of an oath. HOLIDAYS! A very singular thing it is that some inde pendent Hember does not, even yet, move such a resolution. The Commons would adopt it, and the Lords have no right to question or interfere with tho regulations of the other House. General HAVELOCK'S pension of £l,OOO per annum, voted by the Commons at the request of the Crown, has been postponed until Feb ruaryrin compliance with the general opinion, in and oat of Parliament, that it was too small, and that, as HANRLOCK was between sixty and Seventy years old, liable to the casualties of war and climate, the grunt should be made with succession to his oldest son, a gallant officer in India, who will have the baronetcy on his father's death. Rather, against his will, Lord PALMERSTON has been compelled to submit to the will of the majority" in this case. The, commercial difficulties in England and ,on, the Continent do not appear to have eel!. aided, as bankruptcies 'arid suspensions con tinue to lie the order of the day. The Bank of England was daily increasing its resource of gold. .The Wolverhampton and City of Glasgow Banks were about paying off their notes in gold, and would resume business. The Western Bank (at Glasgow) was so much broken, that it will be necessary to wind it up. Consols were steady, and the markets all on the rise. In advance of the regular Overland Mail, there has been received intelligence froln. Cal cutta dated November 10, and from Bombay of November 17. Though surrounded by 70,000 insurgents, TlA.v.usimit and Oman . held out at Lucknow. Sir COLIN CAMPBELL, with fresh English troops, had crossed the Ganges on November otlf,en . route for Lucknow. Four 'or five days' march would bring him to Altitubagh, situated between Cawnpore and 'Luck - now, and only three miles from Luel.l - toir. Here Colonel ernEATIMALOS co lumn, reinforced to 5,000 infantry and cavalry, was awaiting him. The combined force would probably make this British relieving force 1000. There was no apprehension of defeat, though the Insurgents were in great force, par ticularly In the narrow limit between Luclinew and Altunbagh. The insurgents wore, concen trating themselves in Ondo, of which Lucknow is a principal town. Sir HEN Y HAVELOCK had only 700 men fit for duty with him, at Lucknow. Encompassed as he was by tens of thousands of the insurgents, he held out bravely, though scarcity of provisions was much felt by his little army. " Few and faint, but fearless still." FEMALE FRIEND The officer who captured the aged Kin g of Delhi having promised that his life should be spared, the Anglo-Indian Executive intended to fulfil that promise. The llindoos will very probably attribute this leniency and good faith to fear. It is by no means unlikely, from the angry feeling excited bkthe atrocities of this aged ruffian, (who, eveNduring the siege of Delhi, permitted every English prisoner to be burned alive,) that private vengeance will cause his death if any fair opportunity occur. Neis from Calcutta to November 21, and probably from Lucknow to November 15, was expected in London, by telegram from Tri este, about Christmas Day. It may mimi c* the defeat of the insurgents at Lucknow. It cau scarcely reach this country before the 7th or Bth of January, by the africa, which was to leave Liverpool on last Saturday. /or The Prete.] The well written article with the above cap tion in Tun PRESS of Thursday, although complimentary to the ingenuity of the Irish people, would lead to unflattering conclusions as to the common sense of a small (unfortu nately too small) class of people now-a-days, namely the lenders of money. That any man with an annual income of £72 arising ftom real estate, should be enabled Seen in Ireland to encumber it with such a sum as £200,000 staggers belief. It was supposed, and with some justice, that almost the extremity of credit had been reached in the case of Lord Portarlington, whose Irish estate, when sold by the Commissioners in 1850, brought nearly £200,000 and were encumbered to the extent of £885,000. In that case the property was not mortgaged for double its value, rather an unusual circumstance with any of the old Irish estates, although it may be said by way of apology for the late Earl of Portarlington, that he made every effort in his power, to effect so desirable a consummation. In the instance alluded to in The Paces of yesterday-- 11r. Clement William Sadlier—he is not, I re gret to say, fairly entitled to the applause award ed him for Ills ingenuity by the writer of the article. ' Re is, or was, a very plain, unpretending gentleman, occupying, when I knew him, the respectable, but moderate position of manager of a branch of the Tipperary Bank at Carrick on-Suir, in Ireland. But he has a brother, of whom something has been said in these columns, who used him, as he used all others, for his guilty and ambitious purposes, and the end is seen in that register or ruins, the En cumbered Estates' Gazette. For that magnifi cent defartiter he endorsed, and accepted, and overdrew, believing in him as in a prophet, and finding, as his reward at the last,only rain, and sorrow, and shame. That is the true his tory of that enormous debt with so little to pay it, and, doubtless, the writer of the article on eflrish Ingenuity" would, had ho known the fact, have expressed, instead of amusement at the credulity of creditors, his sympathy with another of the victims of that splendid Swindler, the late John Sadlier, M.

The Cunard steamship Persia, Captain Jud kins, which left Liverpool at half-past three o'clock on the afternoon of Saturday the 12th inst., arrived at New York on Christmas morn ing, having been twenty-eight hours longer. on the voyage titan the Adriatic, had boon. The steamship Ariel arrived at Southampton on the morning of the 12th inst. The steamship City of Baltimore would not leave Liverpool on the 16th of December, so that the first vessel of that lino to leave Liv- erpool would be the Kangaroo, on the 13th of January. The American ship Lone Star, bound from Moulmein to Queenstown, foundered at sea. The crew were saved. Parliament, has passed the Indemnity bill, and would adjournimmediately till February. An ambassador had arrived in England from Hokind, to demand, officially, for the Prince of Orange the hand of the Princess Alice. The steamship Leviathan had only been moved a few inches shwa the departnre of the Adriatic, owing to the giving way of the mooring tackle. It was feared, as the ves sel had reached a slighter incline, that her progress would be oven slower than it had been. A large meeting had been held in London to consider the subject of the government of In dia, and' reaolutions wore adopted In favor of en asset - option of supreme authority by the British Government. The London News ' of the 11th instant, says that in the discount market the supply of money was increasing, and first-class bills were readily discounted at a sensible reduction from the bank rate. The bullion in the Bank of France continued to increase, and a still further reduction In the rate of discount was anticipated. A. Berlin letter states that the. disturbing in fluence of the American panic had extended as far as Warsaw, where numerous manufacturers had failed. from Spain we learn that Mt amnesty has been granted for political offences and to per ions condemned to light punishment. A great many promotions had also taken place. In Belgium , the elections took place on the 12th instant, and, as far as known, the result was decidedly in favor of the liberals. It is stated that the Cabinet of St. Peters burg has peremptorily denied the right, claimed by Austria and 'England, under .the treaty of Paris, of ; interdicting Russia from blockading the Circassian ports. The Persia brings later news from China. It is dated at Hong Kong, on the 30th of Oc tober. Preparations were being made for the assault on Canton. The British and Fren..lt ministers were at Hong Kong. The expedi tion to the North had been aparently aban doned. The Paris correspondent of the London Times says: f , The last official accounts re ceived from Sbanghae - announce that the Chinese Government has demanded of the Russian Government the immediate evacua tion of the Chinese territory, of which that power has taken possession on the banks of the river Amoor." English troops were pouring into India at the rate of 2,000 a week. Tho celebrated clipper ship Champion of the Seas was at Calcutta, and would probably roach there on the 2d November, after a passage of eighty five days. Lucknow still held out, although no commu nication bad been had with the besieged. Heavy fighting and slaughter aro said to have occurred. The column hitherto under the command of Col. Greathead had been increased to 5,000 strong at Cawnpore, and on the 3d of Novem ber, under command of Brigadier Grant, it reached Alumbagli, only three miles from Lucknow, and there awaited the arrival of the commander-in-chief. Sir Colin Campbell arrived at Cawnpore on the 3d of November, and crossed the Ganges on the 9th, at the head of 5,000 men, en route for Lucknow. Srurious other succegsful encounters 'with the mutineers aro reported. Nona Sahib was believed to be in command of the rebels before Lucknow. So completely was the force at Lucknow be leaguered, on the 31st of October ' that the only message received from there for weeks was written on a piece of paper three inches square, and most adroitly concealed. Sir James °dram's force had been then terribly reduced, and the total number in the residency was supposed to ho not more than 1,400, besides women, children, and wounded. There were besides about 800 men, with a great array of camp followers, at Alumbagh, believed to be without the means of communi cating with those at Lucknow. The strength of the enemy around Lucknow was estimated at 70,000, but it was neverthe less considered certain that the garrison could hold out till the tenth of November, before which time Sir Colin Campbell would be be fore Lueknow with an army of 4,000 men, in cluding his own Highland brigade, 800 caval ry, and a very heavy train of artillery. It is stated that during the siege of Delhi the Sepoys took all the wounded Europeans they could catch and burnt them afire. The charred bodies tied to stakes, were found by the stormers with the Queen's buttons still re cognisable. The lire of the King of Delhi was to be spared, the officer who arrested him having given a pledge to that effect. One of the sons of the King of Delhi is said to have escaped from the civil charge in which he was placed. The Dinapore and Owalior mutineers were making for Oude. ADDITIONAL NEWS.

TERENCE BELLEW MCMANUS.—In a letter ad dressed by Terence Bellow McManus to 3. P. Ma guire, M.

Mr. Ferguson has retired from the management of the Crystal Palace, and they are at a loss whore to look for his suodessor. Where, indeed ! Mr. Ferguson fs a clever man, but in attempting the management of the Crystal Palace he utterly mis took his wile, , going in entirely to 'demise the aristocratic and high-paying patrons, to whom be gave constant flower-shows and Italian concerts, and utterly ignoring the shilling crowd, by whom the place should have been supported. His suc cessor will have all this to undo, and in addition to invent attractions for the populace.

Those reforms will, it is said, consist first, of the right accorded to the serfs to marry without the consent of their master; secondly, corporal punishments can no longer be inflicted, except on the sentence of a communal tribunal ; thirdly, the master cannot, at his own will, take the peasant from the plough to make him a servant, or assign him any other employment; and fourthly, the peasant can no longer be transferred from one village to another.

The Count and Countess de Morny wore present, and, for the find time, the Parts public were admitted to joilgtnent on the charms which have been so much vaunted in the north and cast of Europe. The result of the ex• antination is not wholly in confirmation of the wide-spread false which those charms have ac quired. Tho Countess's beauty is decidedly of the petit genre—soft, and not commanding—the groat peculiarity of the style being the very dark oyes and very fair hair. This contrast gives a singu: larlty to the oountenance, to which we " men of the west" are totally unaccustomed. The youthful countess was most simply attired, with no ornament whatever in her sosjeure,lwhieh consisted entirely of the plaitos, torsades, and ringlets of her own magnificent hair. Greatdisappointment was expe rienced in consequence, as the contemplation of tho splendid jewels, said to have been bestowed by the bmporor on her wedding, might be rookoned for a large share in the curiosity with which her presence was greeted.

They represent that "six hundred free• State desperadoes" are &louring the country, haying burnedeuvoral houses and killed several men.

The Dtmorrat also has a letter from Doniphan, Kansas, dated Dec. 176, saying • A compsny of fifteen armed ruffians from Atchi son have just left this city. after having murdered, in the public streets, with a shot gun, Mr. Latham, free•Stateruitixon of Doniphan These men came in in parties of two, about one o'ffiesds this after. noon, and after consulting together, one of them, named MoVoay, shot at Mr. Latham,and mortally wounded him, as he was peacefully walking along the street, unarmed and unsuveeting, near the Doniphan House.

The Frightful Murder nt Westfield, Mass The Springfield Repi , h/sran of the 23d. says: The most dreadful murder on record in this section of country was discovered at Westfield on -Wednes day morning. It is no less than the alaughtering, In cold blood, of a wife and two children by the husband and father, who has fled. What is most remarkable, too, about the tragedy, is that it was committed on Tueaday morning, December 15, more than a week ago—in a house occupied, aleo, by another family, and directly in the centre of the tillage—and yet only became known on Wed nesday morning Albert Stoubs, the perpetrator of this dreadful crime, is a native of Switzerland, a cigar maker by trade, an intelligent, sober. and professedly religious man, a member of the Baptist Church, and apparently fond of his wife and cbildren,whoin he has now so brutally butchered. Ifs was about :35 years old, has lived in Westfield many years, was well known and respeoted, and had constant work and good wages in Krieit's cigar factory.

NOVEL INDIAN CEIIENIONIKS AT THE INMAN Brat•.Au.—On Wednesday afternoon the Pawnee delegation'(whose arrival we noticed,) accompa nied by Major Denison, their agent, and Ilk daughter, who has been adopted by the tribe, and Samuel Allis, their Interpreter, had an interview with Acting Commissioner Mix. This delegation represents four bands of Indians, numbering three or four thousand mots, located some forty or sixty miles west of Omaha city. The ()evasion of their visit is a promise made by Oen. Denver, last Sep tember, on the occasion et making the recent trea ty, that a portion of their leading men should have an opportunity shortly to visit their Great Father, the President, and also to see the settlements of their white brethren, in order that they might note the beneficent effects of civilization. Tho interview was a singular affair, and fur the three hours that it continued resembled rather Quakel meeting than the visit of an ordinary In dian delegation. Instead of the usual warlike ap proach and:deelarmilory harangues, the Pawnees approached the Commissioner reverently, bestow ing on him huggings, kbsings, and endearing looks. It appears to have brat a religious cere monial on their part. The PIMIItO.4 hitvo great reverence for the Supremo Being, and for the officers of the tlovernment, whom they look upon ns the medium of that Being. Fourteen or fifteen minutes at a time they gazed fixedly upon the face of the Commissioner, accompanying their gaze with hestures resembling mesmeric passes, but which owever, failed to mesmerize the wary Commis stoner, and at the end of the interview he had sus tained no ether harm than some discoloration of face and shirt collar, through their contact with the painted faces of the braves In the course of the repeated huggings they bestowed upon him.— il r ashttlgiOlt ,tar.

There was no cessation in the extensive prepara tions which Nero made to insure a proper celebra tion of the holidays, until midnight on Thursday. In Ten Pnuoe, of Friday, we referred to the crow ded anti remarkable condition of the sidewalks on the previous night—so much so that everybody who was at all in haste wee obliged to take to the Car riage way, Stores that on three hundred and twelve data in the year are closed at seven o'clock, were britliantly lit up wail a very late hour, while saleaman 'ttnd saliattotnen wore throwing thelins selves about, like porpoises around the bows of an outward-bound vessel. .. - Christmas passed off with leas out-door excite ment than would have occurred bad the weather not changed so suddenly cold. The variation in the thermometer between Thursday and Friday was fifteen degrees —a variation sufficient to stook the market with enough colds and consumptions to keep the doctors in work for the next thrse months. The theatres wore open, and did a tremendous business. The circus, in particular, was crammed to repletion. The Episcopalians and Catholics attended divine service in the morning, but the afternoon was everywhere snored to merry-making and festivity. The streets were very mach crowded, although the air was so keen that the pretty noses of the ladles looked as purple as the bosom of a pigeon. Wo expect that there will be very little diminution in the hilarity of the season until after Now Year. Many of the stores were open all day. This was especially the case in Second and Eighth streets, but a few were also open in Chestnut street. Whether they sold goods enough to compensate the people for the loss of a logititnate holiday remains to bo seen. There were, unfortunately, excesses indulged in, which ended in maiming and even in death; but, notwithstanding these melancholy events, there was considerably less drunkenness and rowdyism than usual. Most people made the holiday en oc casion of quiet home enjoyment; and the savory fumes of roasting turkey and goose which worked their way out into the frosty air during the day, and the bright lights which beamed through bott omed blinds and shutters after nightfall, betoken ed high feasting and happy firesides. The cold, raw, and cloudy weather tended to promote home comforts; and the crowd in the streets was less dense than usual. The account of the arrival and reception of the lion. Stephen A. Douglas in the Prima of Christmas morning, induced numerous gentlemen to roll upon the distinguished Senator at the Girard house, where they were all warmly greeted. We, fortunately, had an introduction to tho "Little Want," and were favored with a friendly shake of the hand, a pioneers and an honor that we will not soon forget. The Central Police Station presented a very curious appearance on Christmas morning. Young men who had been arrested on tho previous eve ning for drunken and disorderly conduct, were seated in a line in front of the prisoners' dock, and were a most doleful aspect. The office was crowded by their friends and policemen, who mani fested considerable interest in the fate of the culprits—the former anxious to ascertain whether their acquaintances were destined to miss the en joyment of " a merry Christmas," and the latter waiting to give tu their °Odense before the magis trate. Alderman Enett entered the office at an early hour, with the usual genial smile upon hit honey°. lent countenance, One by one the prisoners were interrogated as to their names, residences, and the objects of their skylarking, after which they were Informed that they might all go home, and re quested to remember hereafter that the near ap proach of Christmas does not justify any violation, however trivial, of the law, This gentle repri mand was well received by those who were thns released, who, as they were leaving the office, turned to the alderman and said : ^ Good morn ing, sir! A merry Christmas and a happy New Year!" A rather aintisMg affair occurred in Market street, below Ninth, on Christmas morning, which is deserving of a passing notice. An individual, respectably clothed, and with a very genteel ad dress went into the 'William Penn Hotel, and asked for employment. He elated that he bad been out of-work for a considerable time, and was without even a cent of money for the purchase of food. A gentleman who heard his request pro- I/090(1 to give him five dollars if he would carry a brick across the street all day. This offer, made in a jesting mood, woe immediately accepted, and the unemployed" at onto commenced the per formance of this novel task. Per nearly two hours be walked. across the street with a brick in his and attracted a crowd numbering be tween two and three hundred persons. This cu rious undertaking elicited much humorous com ment; and the whole affair was only terminated by the appearance of a police officer, who took the "street-walker — into custody, and dispersed the crowd. Alderman Thompson stated to the priso ner that his conduct was liable to cause a breach of the peace, and then dismissed hint. A con. siderablo sum of money was collected for him, and ho went on his way rejoicing. Lieut. Ramos, of the Sixth Police District, in alluding to this curious Christmas freak, says in his report to Mayor Vaux, made on Saturday : Yesterday morning, about nine o'clock, a citizen of Kansas, who preferred good old Pennsylvania to Eames, with or without the becompton Constitu tion, found himself in this city, and hard up. Af ter trying in vain to got employment, he had, at. last, Mend a person, who had more good nature than good sense, who employed hint to carry a brick from ono side of Market street to the other, for a certain sum of money. The crowd became at, petit that the reserve police were called into re- The Mayor of the city on Friday directed that all lodgers who might elaini shelter at any of the city police stations during the night, should have bread and coffee served out to them. The Mayor paid for the articles front his private purse. The act was a charitable ono, and many a poor wrotoh availed himself of the opportunity of obtaining something to eat. At several points bread, during the day, was dis tributed gratuitously to the poor. The juveniles at the Northern Home fur Friend less Children had gifts distributed to them on Christmas afternoon. During this afternoon there were numerous visitors to the institution. On the Ridge road, near Melon street, a sensa tion was created by it tree growing on the side walk being decorated with old hats and shoes, and other emblems wt poverty. The display was intended to represent hard times, and it was in very bad taste. The scarcity of fires on Christmas eve and night was a gratifying feature of the holiday. Fire De tective Blackburn was constantly on the alert, but fortunately his services were not called into requi sition. About five o'clock on Christmas morning a car rier of the Tun named lt. Mil, while serving his papers at Ninth and Wharton streets. had his attention attracted by a whistle, which appeared to come from some person in the lumber yard of Robert Clink, Jr., at the junction of these streets. In a moment afterwards he saw a person come from this yard, and beard him say to a com• ?anion, who bad evidently been waiting for him outside, "tin for the engine." Suspecting th it these hull% idu.ils were incendiaries, Mr. Hill jumped over the fence, and die of erect that a fire hail been kindled, it hick, after sumo little difficul ty, ho succeeded in extinguishing. It would hate been well if the villains who tired this place had been followed by Mr. Hill, and measures taken to procure their arrest. An alarm of fire teas caused on Thursday morn ing by the burning of a chimney of a house in George street, below South, in the Fourth ward. 'rho roof was also slightly damaged. DM= About twelve o'clock. on Thursday night, a ne gro man named Nathaniel Barris was passing along Lombard street, abovo Sixth, when ho was deliberately shot through the head with a revolver in the hands of another colored man named Win. Durham. Durham, after shooting Harris, fired two shots at a man named Courshaw, but without striking him Durham fled, and Barrie was taken to tho l'ennsyltania lioTital, where he died at half-past ten o'clock on }ridgy morning.

TWO CENTS. The jury, after a brief deliberation, rendered a verdict that the deceased bed come to his death by a pistol shot fired by William Durham. The latter has not yet beea arrested; ha was seen in the city on Friday morning. Between 12 and 1 o'clock on Christmas morning a tragedy was enaoted at the Butchers' Inn, Mane yank, kept by Madison Richmond. It seems that a ball was in progress at the tavern, and a number of the participants were indulging in the bar room. Among the persons present were two Eng lishmen named George Ileckfard and John Lee. Lee caught Rockford in a rough manner by the neck, and so incensed the latter that he knocked him clown and kicked him in the head. From the injuries received in this manner Lee died in about half an hour. Rockford was immediately taken into custody. The latter is a coal-heaver ; he has a wife and three children. Lee was employed as a hemmer in a factory ; be left a wife and fiv e children. The affair caused a great excitement in Manayunk. Ifeckford was greatly distressed when he realized the extent of the crime he had com mitted in the heat of his anger. On Friday, Coroner Fenner held an inquest in the ease. The following evidence was elicited. Madison Riolamonti sworn—l am the proprietor of the "Butchers' Inn."
