The attempt to Assassinate Marshal O'Donnell. --Marshal O'Donnell, or rather the Duke of Tetuan, as he is known since the recent war in Africa, was nearly assassinated in Madrid, on the 7th of December. A Madrid paper of the 8th says: Yesterday evening, at six o'clock, as the Duke of Tetuan was leaving the Senate, a bystander, wrapped in a cloak, approached him, and presenting a pistol, fired at him, saying, "Die, traitor!" A short-hand writer present, who was also a physician, at ot, who was also a physician, at once examined the General's wound, and found that it was very slight. On feeling himself wounded, the Duke exclaimed, "Neither the African balls nor those of Madrid can hurt me!" When the event became known, the English and French ministers, and other members of the diplomatic body, and a great many members of the two Chambers, waited on the Marshal to congratulate him. The assassin, after firing, ran off, crying, "Viva la Reina!" but was pursued and captured.
