FRANCE. The Session of the Legislative Chambers was opened on the 19th December by a speech from the King; which, however, throws little light upon the state of France, or upon the general politics of Europe. In that document France is represented to be in a state of peace and prosperity. In the interior successes always increasing have crowned the efforts of her laborious activity, which apply equally to agriculture, arts, and industry. A new diminution of taxes is announced, and the recent modifications in the electoral system are leading to those advantages which were anticipated. Of the foreign relations of France it is said, that time has only more closely united the alliance of which France forms a part-and that this alliance, while it averts the causes of war, ought to inspire confidence against the dangers to which social order or the political equilibrium may be exposed. NETHERLANDS. On the 29th December, the palace of the Prince of Orange at Brussels was totally destroyed by fire. Many valuable effects were saved, but

SPAIN. The aspect of affairs in this country is still somewhat troubled. It appears certain, that there exists an active party in Spain, though they are small in number, who are anxious for the restoration of the ancient form of government. The spirit of the great body of the people is, however, so adverse to their views, that no fears are entertained for the stability of the present system. The discontented occasionally assemble in different parts of the Peninsula, in small companies of about 20 or 30 armed men, but their object seems to be as much predatory as political, so that it is not easy to distinguish these insurgents from ordinary banditti. In some cases the clergy are said to be the instigators of the disturbances. It would also ap
