Arrival of the Fulton.

Cape Raor Dec. 21.
--The steamer Fulton, from Southampton on the 12th inst., has arrived here.

The City of Baltimore had arrived out.

The Fulton brings $600,000 in specie.

The news is unimportant.

Victor Emmanuel was expected back at Naples at any moment.

There is nothing later from Gaeta.

Francis II. had issued another protest complaining of the apathy of European sovereigns in regard to his position, and denouncing Victor Emmanuel. The tone of his dispatch does not indicate a prolonged occupation of Gaeta. He had concluded a loan at Vienna.

Reactionary disturbances are reported to have taken place at several places, but had been suppressed by the Garibaldian and the ringleaders shot. The Archbishop of Naples on his return was mobbed and his palace threatened with destruction; but, after eighteen hours rioting, the mob were appeased by the appearance of the Archbishop bearing the national tricolor.

The London Post reiterates the statement, on good authority, that the Princess Alice has been betrothed to Prince Louis of Hesse.

It had been reported that the Emperor Napoleon declared to the Bishop of Versailles, with much sarcasm, that the temporal power of the Pope must be put down.

Count Persigny, as Minister of the Interior of France, was issuing important circulars to the Prefects. In one he promises the utmost liberty of discussion to the press.

It was reported that the Austrian Cabinet had discussed the expediency of declaring martial law throughout Hungary.

It was also rumored that the Hungarian Committee, at Milan, had proposed to tender the Hungarian cause to Prince Napoleon.

General O' Donnell had been fired upon and shot in the shoulder, as he was leaving the Spanish Senate.

The French Ambassador to Turkey was urging the extension of the French occupation of Syria, but the Porte objects.
