Later from Europe.the Allies in China. New York. Dec. 12. --The steamship Kedar, with Liverpool dates to the 27th ult., arrived to-day. In China the Allies had, on two occasions, had combats with separate bodies of Tartar Cavalry, numbering 30,000 each. The cavalry were completely routed. Fifty guns were taken from them. The Allies had only 18 wounded. The Times' correspondent, Consul Parks, and three officers, had been taken prisoners by the Chinese and taken to Pekin. They were well treated. The Chinese sent a flag of truce with provisions for a treaty, but Lord Elgin refused to negotiate before the prisoners are released. The Emperor's brother had been appointed Chief Commissioner to make peace. All was quiet at Shanghai. The latest Government dispatch says the Allies were within six miles of Pekin. The Times reviews the secession movement in the United States, and reiterates the belief that the Union will be maintained. Count Va
Congressional. Washington, Dec, 12. --Senate.--The proposed amendments to Mr. Morrill's tariff bill were referred to a committee. Mr. Hunter, of Virginia, from the Committee on Finance, reported back the ten million Treasury note bill, with amendments making the lowest denomination fifty dollars; that the amount issued be three, instead of ten millions; that the proceeds of the sales of the public lands be set apart as security for their redemption. The bill was finally reduced to three millions, and passed. Mr. Yulee, of Fla., gave notice that he would move a reconsideration of the vote on Powell's resolution, on the reference of that portion of the President's Message referring to secession. The motion was debated till the hour of adjournment. House--The Speaker called the States for propositions relative to the present political condition of the country, in pursuance of a resolution adopted yesterday. About two dozen propositions were presented, and refer

Abolition lecture postponed in Philadelphia. Philadelphia, Dec. 12. --The proposed abolition lecture by Potiphar Curtis has been postponed in consequence of the refusal of the proprietors of China Hall to let it for that purpose. Mayor Henry also advised its postponement to avoid the danger of a disturbance growing out of the excitement in consequence of the Union mass meeting to be held to-morrow. The Mayor, however, was ready to give an ample police force to protect the "freedom of speech" if the lecture was persisted in. The Union demonstration to morrow promises to be an impressive affair. The public buildings will be closed and the courts and private business will be suspended.

Union movement at the North. Buffalo, N.

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.political — Diphtheria — Typhoid fever — Longevity — Religious revival — weather — surgical operation, &c. Harrisonburg, Va., Dec. 12. On Thursday next, (Court day,) we will have a meeting to define the position of Rockingham on the affairs of the country. What will be the action of the meeting I do not know, but I suppose strong Union resolutions will be adopted. I surmise that much, from the fact that several leaders propose resolutions for their adoption, already cut and dried, which resolutions or something of their shape will be published in the papers of the county this week, which will in some measure forestall public opinion. The press is a great power in this section, and so long as it is not perverted, and remains pure as now, it is of course to be considered a blessing. Diphtheria, the scourge of the present day, in this and surrounding counties, prevails with a malignant fury, which seems not to abate in the lea
real Professor, with whom I have traveled the world round--Europe, Asia, Africa, America, Australia and Oceanics — is at present in Alexandria, and no where else. He is to be at Mechanics' Hall. Richmond, next Monday. Yet I hear of pseudo Prof. Anderson's both South and West of me. Now, the schoolmen of the days of Abelaid contended that it is a property of angels to be in two places at one time. Angels may be — I don't know; but Prof. Anderson is no angel. He is the same gentleman who astonished Richmond eight years since, and who I pledge myself, means to astonish it again; but for eight years he has not been anywhere in the neighborhood, and he is an impostor who takes his name. My letter may be of service to caution the public, and may enable me to discover if I can copyright a wizard as I can a book, both being bound in cloth gilt-edged having many pages and dependent on printer's ink. E. P. Hingston Agent for Prof. Anderson. Powhatan Hotel, Richmond, Va., Dec. 12th.
