We shall endeavor in this article to give a short history of the rise, progress, and catastrophe of the paper issued by the several revolutionary Governments of France, between the years 1790 and 1797, as illustrating more completely than any other event in history the dangers of an inflated currency, and the absolute necessity f some means, more stringent than any which have yet been applied, be not adopted to retire the superfluous portion of this enormous circulation. The debt of France in 1787 was about three milliards of francs, or about $600,000,000. The deplorable state of the finances, and the inability of the Government to pay the interest totally inadequate to the purpose. The printing press, once set to going, could never be stopped. We trust that some means, more effectual than any yet tried, may be devised to stop any further issues, and to bring in the greater part of the outstanding notes. Otherwise we see, from the example of France, what we may expect.
occupation of Mexico. The question now arises, what are the U. S. going to do about it? They must either make war upon France, which they swear they will as soon as they have whipped the Southern Confederacy, or they must back down, as they know how to do better than any other nation. It will never do, even could they conquer the South, to have France on the Southern border, for the disaffected Southern population would inevitably be affording every facility to their French neighbor to extenthe Rio Grande to the Potomac. They would themselves seek French protection, and, instead of being made to fight against France as the Washington dynasty natters itself, would hold out such a prize to French ambition as would bring half a million French bayonets to their relief.

Miss Bell Boyd was committed to the Old Capitol prison on Friday. She was arrested at Martinsburg. A tornado and hail storm recently passed over a portion of Indiana, doing great damage to the crops and destroying the mast. The New York Times, of the 29th, says: Our Government ought at once to make preparations for a war with France. It professes to believe that Louis Napoleon has a secret treaty, either concluded or in progress, with Jefferson Davis, by which the cession of Texas is to be received as an equivalent for recognition and for substantial aid to the rebel Confederacy. The language of the European press, the tone of the Emperor's organs, the hints of the Moniteur, indicate clearly enough its purpose to intervene in our affairs. It is reported that Washington Goodrich was captured a few day since near O
Admiral, at the instance of the United States Consul, had issued a public notice warning the people against any infringements of the foreign enlistment act. The destruction of the American ship Nashby a privateer, off Gibraltar, is confirmed. The Times says that the decision of the Washington Government, in the Peterhoff case is looked for with great interest. The rebel loan had declined to 29a27 discount. The Mexican and Polish questions remained unchanged. The notes of France and England to Russia are represented as quite pacific. The Memorial Diplomatique announces that the Archduke Maximilian accepts, with the consent of his brother, the Emperor of Austria, the crown of the new Mexican empire. The London Times in its city article, in reference to Mexico, says: --It is vain to deny that the feeling of the London merchants is that, on the whole, the Emperor Napoleon has done a great service, both political and commercial, to the world — political in con
