Additional by the Canada.

The following is additional intelligence by the Canada, from Liverpool on the 3d inst:

‘ It was believed in Paris that the object of France in preventing the blockade of Gaeta by sea is merely to facilitate the escape of the King of Naples, and prevent complications which would result from his capture. The French journals offer no explanation of the affair.

’ The Paris Bourse closed firm and animated. Rentes 69f. 35


The Neapolitans reported the defeat of Gen. Cialdini, without loss, at the river Gariglinano. The official dispatches, however, from Turin, proclaim the report false. The Sardinians were not defeated at all.

Capua was attacked on the 1st, and capitulated the following day. The royal troops were to leave with the honors of war, and after laying down their arms they were to go, on the 3d, to Naples.

Naples was illuminated in honor of the capitulation of Capua, and there were great rejoicing.

The attack on Gaeta was shortly expected to take place.

It is denied, via Turin, that Admiral Persano had commenced but suspended his firing on the royalists near Gaeta.


The recent advices from China confirm the previous news from that point.

The victory of the allies in China.

The French version of the China news says that on the 21st of September the allies, after a vehement resistance, carried by assault the most important of the Taku forts. Two hundred French and about the same number of English were placed hors du combat, and one thousand Tartars were killed, found in the forts. Among these was the General-in-Chief. The other forts surrendered successively the same evening. The capitulation gave the allies possession of the whole country as far as Tien-Sin and six hundred brass guns of large calibre.

The Ambassadors were at Tien-Sin, where the Chinese Commissioners attended upon them to open negotiations.

It was reported that the Ambassadors would soon proceed to Pekin with a cavalry escort.

A Calcutta dispatch reports symptoms of disaffection in the sixth European regiment at Dinapore.


It is reported that the Turkish Government is about to negotiate a loan of £16,000,000 sterling at Paris. A national forced loan is also spoken of.

Great financial fluctuations have been occurring at Constantinople.

The India and China mails were received in time to be forwarded by the Canada.
