Further by the steamer Java.

New York, December 13.
--The jailor who connived at the escape of Stevens, the Fenian Head Centre, has been committed for trial.

The London Times, noticing the acquittal of Captain Corbett on the Shenandoah case, says it cannot affect to be disappointed; and adds that the evasion of the neutrality laws have been so executed as almost to defy legal restitution.

The Paris Bourse closed quiet yesterday at 68f. 72 for the rentes.

Correspondence from Madrid denies that the Spanish Government has sent Admiral Panija orders to suspend hostilities against Chili. The Government is not even disposed to accept of the mediation of neutral powers. Orders have been given to the Spanish naval arsenals to push forward the preparation of war vessels for sea.

The New York Evening Express of this date says the European steamer Scotia, which sailed to-day for Liverpool, took important Government dispatches to Mr. Bigelow, our Minister in Paris. It is reported that our relations with France are critical. Silence upon the Mexican question in the President's message is now understood, and it is now asserted that the President, although opposed to public menace, urged Mr. Seward to sharp correspondence with the French Government.
