EUROPE.

FRANCE. The Paris journals for a considerable time past have been chiefly filled with the squables of the different political parties of the French metropolis, and the news which they do contain is of very little importance. A trifling riot occurred lately in Paris, in consequence of a priest having refused to perform the usual

funeral ceremonies over the remains of an actor, but it was soon quelled.

The interment of the late King took place with great magnificence at the Abbey of St. Denis, on Monday the 25th Oct. The same opportunity was seized to replace within their former abodes the hearts and various parts of the bodies of Henry IV., Louis XIII., Louis XIV,,

and other Kings, which had been secretly preserved by loyal hands, at the time when revolutionary frenzy violated the sacredness of the tomb.

It appears to be determined that the French troops shall evacuate Spain at the beginning of next year; the French being of opinion that the country will now remain quiet, without the help of foreign ers; at least they are to try the experiment.

SPAIN. Ferdinand has published another proclamation or decree, in which, after pronouncing an eulogium on his own benevolence, he proceeds to issue forth against his loving subjects threats of confiscation, imprisonment, and death. In all this we are told he does violence to the natural benevolence of his heart; and the people are therefore to understand that it is for their ease and happiness that this decree is to be issued; that they are, in short, to be hanged, drawn, and quartered without mercy, that they may be made happy. In this production, his Majesty specifies a variety of new cases of high treason, in which cases, the punishment of death, also, by a military commission, (and this is no bug-bear in Spain,) is denounced against the offenders. The first article comprises in the list of traitors, and subjects to death, "all those who, since October 1823, have declared or proved themselves enemies to the legitimate rights of the throne, or partisans of the selfstyled Constitution of Cadiz." Such are the maxims on which Spain is now governed, and such is the sort of tranquillity which the interference of foreigners has established in that country.

PORTUGAL.-Lisbon papers of the 31st October state that a treasonable plot had been discovered among the military, in consequence of which, certain indivduals were put under arrest, and, it is said, will be brought to trial without delay, that they may suffer the punishment they deserve. No mention is made of the parties arrested, nor is the nature of their crime stated. The troops in the garrison, and the royal guard, are warmly praised for their fidelity.

PRUSSIA. The Prussian Government, it appears, is at length about to convene the Provincial States, a step long meditated, and closely connected with the prac tical freedom of the country. In order to insure the cordial support of these assemblies, the Government has taken care to deserve it, by measures of strict and rigorous economy, having made a reduction of no less than four millions of crowns, out of an expenditure of fifty millions, of which one-third was for the war depart ment. The cities of Cologne, Minden, Erfurth, Stralsund, and Dantzic, will be

no longer the seat of Provincial Govern. ment. It is said the Minister of War, De Hac, resigns, and the five sections of the Ministry of War will form in future but two, which are to be superintended by Witzelben, the Adjutant of the King. In all the departments of the Government there will be numerous reductions. for the army, the reduction will not extend but to the staff, the artillery, and the landwehr. The Adminstration of Commerce will be united with that of the Home Department.

TURKEY & GREECE.-The continental journals bring rumours, from various quarters, of fresh victories obtained by the Greeks over the Turks. The accounts are from Trieste, Corfu, Zante, &c., and state, that on the 25th September, the united Turkish and Egyptian fleet had another engagement with the Greeks, between Patmos and Samos, in which the for was again defeated, and fled to Mitylene. All the Egyptian transports were either left at Boudroun, or had been taken by the Greeks. Letters from Corfu say, that Ibrahim Pacha, son of the Viceroy of Egypt, and commander of the Egyptian expedition, the Vice-Admiral Ismael Gibraltar, and a renegado, formerly aide-de-campe to General Grouchy, who had directed, for some years, the military affairs of the Viceroy of Egypt, together with eight millions of piastres, taken in the engagements, had been carried by the Greeks into Napoli di Romania. The Greeks, after having, in the preceding actions off Rhodes, Cos, and the coast of Caramania, burnt, taken, and sunk nearly 100 large and small vessels, at length succeeded in setting fire to the Viceroy's last and finest frigate. In the second action, near Rhodes, the Greeks took thirty-two transports, partly of the Turkish, partly of the Egyptian fleet.

The same letters report advantages on land gained by the Greeks, in Thessaly, and in Eastern and Western Greece. The substance is, that Dervish Pacha, with 15,000 men, had been repulsed at Thermopylæ, and forced to retreat on Larissa in confusion, with the loss of fourteen stand of colours; that the Greek General Odysseus had defeated a party of Turks advancing from Negropont; and that in Western Greece, Omer Pacha's force had been routed near Arta. The Sultan has dismissed Ghalib Pacha, the Grand Visier, and appointed Mahomed Selim Pacha in his place, with particular instructions to attend to the re

bellion of the Greeks. It appears that there are disturbances in various provinces of the Turkish empire. Tripoli has rebelled, and expelled its Governor. An
