M. de Lesseps, Whose arrival in Paris
was announced on the flth, left Rome oh
the 2d inst., at which date no hostilies had
been commenced, though the armistice was
denounced on the Ist. On the morning of
that day, General Regnault de Saint Jean
d' Angely arrived at Civita Vechia, an
nouncing that the Roman Republic had
proposed to 'M. de Lesseps to treat on the
following basis : First guarantee .to the
Romans against foreign invasion. Se
condly, Cantonment of the French army
in various parts of the Romagna. Third
ly, in case of refusal of the French gov
ernment, hostilities only to be resumed of
teen days after notification of such refusal.!
The proposals were • inadmissible, and
Gen. Oudinot refused them. It appears
that some difference of . opinion broke out
between the General and M. do Lesseps;
but these were soon put to end by the arri
val of despatches recalling the. latter, and
ordering the rupture of further negotiations
and the attack against Rome.
The French army now from 25,000 to
30,000 men; occupied the heights corn
mandinn• the city, particularly in front of
the bastioned wall extending from the Porte
St. Paucmce to the Portesian gate, on the
bank of the Tiber. On the other side of
the river a brigade of advance-guard is en
' trenched in good position near the church
lof St. Paul, halla league from the walls.'
It is hoped to protect the troops from the
Itfevers caused by malaria, by establishing
them on the heights. The army is provi
ded with every material of. war by late at
irivals at Civita Veccia.

at Rome, , state that considerable dissatis.;
faction eSfisted among the. French troops in
consequence of the nature . of ' the service
they are - engaged' in, and it was feared by

Henry C. Hope Lind John Gray had some
difficulty at the Galt House. - The former
sent the latter a challenge on Wednesday
evening, demanding satisfaction. The u
sual preliminaries were arranged, when
the parties met yesterday morning, before
10 o'clock, on the Indiana side, in a seclu
ded spot, and settled the "point of honor."
The duel was fought with shot-guns, load
ed with ono ounce balls, or slugs ; distance
twenty paces. Captain Hope was shot
through the loft thigh—the ball shattered
the hip bone and pasSed through to the
right side. The • friends of Captain Hope
afterwards placed him in a skiff for the
purpose ofhurrying him heme,:but he died
during the passage from the effect of the
wound. Boil) parties were, very 'intimate
previous to , the difficulty.
