The malls by the steamship Cuba, at Halifax, have arrived. We glean the following items:

Earl Russell, the new English Premier, is sick. Having a cold, he stayed away from the recent Cabinet Council. According to the London Star, however, his illness is somewhat more serious.

Sir Frederick Bruce, the British Minister, has been appointed umpire to a joint commission, representing the United States and the republic of Columbia, South America, for the settlement of claims arising out of the Panama riots of 1856.

The official investigation into the escape of Stephens has been postponed until the close of the Commission, but the Inspector of Prisons, Mr. Corry Connellan, has been directed to answer certain interrogatories tendered to him by order of the Executive. A large number of persons of considerable position are said, by the Dublin Evening Mail, to be seriously compromised in the affair.

The Paris journals are strictly forbidden to speak of Mexico.

The arrival in Paris of the magnificent jewels belonging to the Empress Charlotte, under pretence of alteration and repairs, has given rise to all sorts of comments. People say that a certain great financial firm has been induced to lend a considerable sum upon the Imperial cornet, which was composed of the whole of the wedding diamonds of the Princess Louise, and which was all the dower King Leopold ever got with his wife.
