The Cambria' most important news con
cerning the progress of the contest over
the right of the people to le governed by
rulers of their own choice. , •
& Smith's European Times,
from which the journalists of America will
persist in copying their European news i
tems, (though the reliable advices by each
succeeding steamer prove that paper's ver
sion of the accounts by the, last previous
ones to lave been garbled, to suit the pur
poses of the reactionists,) asserts that no
important continental advices reached Lon
don during the week ending on the dam
s sailing day. This story, untrue, as
' I shall preSently prove, was faithfully re
echoed by the anti-liberalist who makes up
the telegraphic despathesat Halifax for the
associated presses of this city, through
which (being onall occasionsthe firstburst
a t ilt° news) it was communicated to every
Paper in the United States, Not withstan-
Aing - Thelnteresr zinc fcs~cctcw -
passing on the other side of the Atlantic,
full half the newspaper readersof this coun-;
try content themselves with but conning
these telegraphic accounts, not taking time
or trouble to look deeper into the condition
of the European world - than as presented
by the Liverpool Times man and the anti
liberalist despatch writer on this side of
the herring-pond. The consequence is
that comparatively few of our countrymen'
ever learn the truth in this connexion,,,-
But the sympathies of the conductor of the
English paper above referred to, and of
the tory telegraph man, arc mere " moon
shine,' when compared with the evil con
sequences of the writings of the many ab
solutists at heart who furnish garbledstate
ments for English and American popular
reading—always magnifying against the
cause ofliberalism, and•diminishingagainst
that of the "red monarchy" of the day. .
Your Washington readers Were a'day
or two since treated to a specimen of the
style of misrepresentation of men & things
republican—against which . I complain—
throughout three columns of a Paris letter
in the. National Intelligencer. - Ledru Rol,

monster of a red republican or socialist.-
IThis is false. He is no socialist ;.,nor is he
the advocate of popular violence, ftirther
than it may be necessary for the protee
' tion of the now constitutional liberties of
the. French people against any and all vio
lent attempts to compass their abrogation,
whether the Violence resorted to by the ab
solutists be in the shape of flagrant and
shameless setting aside Of the laivs of the

Rollin and his compeers to such conduct
as measures foreshadowing : the re-estab
lishment of the republic of the days of Re-.
I Will leave you to the papers for details
of the French news, cautioning your read
errs to recollect that the conduct on the part
of the ultra republicans, so,vehemently de
nounced by the reactionists, is sustained
by General Bugeaud, who, though proba
bly a monarchist-in principle, see ins to be
aware that the only real danger of civil
war, Or a Contest of castes in France, ari
ses frail the _Measures of-the anti-republi
cans, taken with the view to nullity the
revolution of 1848.
You will perceive that the reactionist
writers are
,insisting that the increase of
the strength of the ultra democracy in the
new Chamber (from 85 in the old to 225)
foreshadows a speedy return of the rei g n
of terror. These same writers, • a few
weeks since, were chuckling over the pre
tended belief that in a very short time the
French would call a monarch to the throne.
If they can create either impression, even
temporarily, theirpurpose of throwingcold
water on the cause of 'struggling freedom
is attained. I question whether thc people
of Paris— of all France—were ever more
law abiding and orderly than just now.—
, SCeing . that their rights are to be protected
and extended in spite of the efforts of re
troaction, they are content to bide their
time. This important fact -is more , esic,
cially apparent in the details of the news
by the two last Steatters. • The chances
arc that ere long that Rollin himself will
be prime minister. If sufficient of the
moderates of the ChNnber act with him to
give him a majority, nothing can prevent
his elevation, or that of parties represent-1
ing 'his views, for the moat, art. eavaig

mates its 'want of confidence in the person
nd or policy of the ministry of the day.,
It is a remarkable coincidence, that the
governments of France and tip U. States I
should, at one and the 'same' time, verge to l
close approximation to the British practice
of intrusting the responsibility - of adminis
tration, not in the party placed by the e
lectors at the head of affairs, but -in minis
of his choosing. But, to recur to the
original thread of my letter- 7 -to the news
that the Butcher. Ferdinand of
,Naples, af
ter the' defeat othis 'vanguard, fled' precipi
tately to his capital—preceding his troops,l
following in total disorder. This is of irn-1
portance ; so also is the fact, that on the
25th ult., it was understood in Vienna that
the Emperor, on hearing*of the state of the
public mind in. France—foreboding a junc
tion of Oudinot's army. with the Roman re
publiens against his troops—laid hastily
recalled Marshal Winnpflin with the army I
on the march for Rome. There is little!
doubt of the truth of this account in my
mind, though the anti-liberal journals have
- not yet beard ,of it. - Your readers will
perceive that it is strictly in keeping with
the policy I have heretofore-suggested as
the only lino or common-sense conduct
left for Austria in the present juncture of
allitirs: The Emperor cannot afford to be .
beaten in-Italy. Just now, to suffer defeat
in that. quarter, would; as if,by Magic; un
do all t.adetZlii has done for his master in
the laSt three months.. So. Frederiek.b
seph!s cabinet will not risk an engagement
not certain to end in a victory for -their
master's arms.'
Rome,,then, .is entirely free from dan
ger from foreign enemies. AV hat a change
in the'prospect for the consummation, of
republicanism in Italy his taken place, in
the last silty or seventy'days. Your rea
ders will remeMber that; in the defeat of
Charles Albeit, every writer for the Amer
ican press upon continental affairs, but my
solf,, announced that event as sealing the
destruction arthe republic of Rome. I, on
the contidiT, claiming that there was still
ground for hope, went on to show that,'in

Arrival of th . (:CrCsient, City; with;:$1,000,000
,The New Orleans papers of the :11th
state that the' steamei'CieSeaft, City
arriVed.there on the Itith, from cii*te - s
which pllice she left on the 4th:
The Croseent'City,' (by special order,)
brings 'three consisting Or fifteen
mail bags," some as far back as. March last.
Capt' Forbes, of steamship Califor
nia,•carne paSsengefon ilia Crescent City,
having left San Francisco . on 'the Ist of
May. He brings news to. the i "date.Of his
departure. • "
Capt.'Forbes represents the Pacific. as a
most delightful sea. The weather:its: al
w'ays free froth storms, and the water calm
and smooth as a' mirror: Slight Rigs oe,-
casionally impede navigation, tait they are
tnldem of long duration.*
Among the vessels thaLb44iiallral from
PanaMa was en old ship called:the I
bolt.. She bad golf& around originally nS'' '
a coal vessel, a ndliiy at Panaisaa 5 months
without employment. At last kSpeeula.- •

nd fitted her up for passengerS; of Whom .
she tools 320 at $2OO 'each. "The lucky
oirner arrived in the Crescent City, with •

gions, in the 'shapc of nearly 'si.;onotgoty
.in gold ; $500,000 of this is asfreigliqtd;
the balance is the passeng,o.4.
We learn from Capt. Forbes. that the
marvellous 'stories respecting thd
dance of gold, are not at alt exaggerated;
but on the contrary; Call far short•of the
reality. The limits of the region'in'Which
the precious metal abounds are .getting
\more extended every day by new discove.
• As 1,8; Barlw•:-

San Francisco -is-crowded with
migrants, such vast numbers or i 7 ori l Ni r „
continually pouring into The . plam
commodations of any kind.are scarcely t r i \
be obtained: The meanest hut orshed,
such as here would be considered unhwha.
bitable, commands enormous rent. G6 3 d
provisions are alMost equally Scarce.
ecarfrest kind of food must be used, as ne .--
other can be rocurcd. No person stays
any longer in San. Francisco than he can
help ; but all who'are lucky . enough to pro
cure transportation, immediately take their ,
departure for the mining, districts. When
they arrive there, they find no difficulty in
accumulating. almost , any amount. of.the
precious metal. 'Three tb four ounces of
gUld is considered a common
,day's work.
Less than that. induces the digger to move
to a richer spot. Much more ,is kicbdiop
gained in a feW hours, as the - poss es sors of the large lunips may attest.' ,
There. was -a great deal of conversation
hi California respecting the eStablishnient
of a ProvisSiOnal Government, but as yet
nothing had been done. The-people are
anxiously awaiting news of the action of
Ccmgress`upon- the subject; not laVing
heard of the failure of that body to act np.
on the subject. In the event of nothing
being done 1,7-,t
Congress, it was generally
understood that when the miners shOuld
return in. the.fal4 a State Governinerit
would be established. • : " • .
