Lower Rhine, April 2Jk—General Dob- scliulz is liourlv expected at Aix-la Chapclle to assume the military government of the coun tries on the Rhine given to Prussia, and to or- nize the Landwehr.

Coips of partisans and independent elirps are organizing in a great number of depart ments. An adjutant-general will be charged, near every general-in-cbief, with the correspon dence with these corps, which, if the enemy has the temerity to penetrate within our territories, will throw themselves into the forest and in the mountains and support themselveSiiy the strong places.

All the cities will arm theipselves in self-de fence ; they will follow the example of Cha- lons-sur-Saone, of Tournies and of St. Jean de Losne. Every city, even those not fortified, will betray the national honor, if they surrender to light troops and do not make the best possi ble defence according to their means, until the arrival of infantry and artillery forces of such a magnitude as tha^ the laws of war would require all resistance against them to cease. The 60,000 seafaring mpn, who formed the crews of the vessels of war in 1S14, will be re organized into regiments commanded by cap tains of vessels. One part of these troops will be employed in the squadrons ; another part wili be charged with the defence of the coasts ; another will augment the army of re serve. Every thing is in motion in every part of France. If the allied powers presist in the pro ject which they announce, of making war upon Us ; and if they violate our frontiers, it is easy to foresee what will be the fruit which they will gather from that attempt against the rights of the French nation.

They do not contain any intelligence of importance ; all is said to be perfectly tranquil at Lisle and in I the cantonmems of the troops, and it is added : that it -is equally doubtful if any movements have taken place among the foreign troops, on the frontiers. No notice is taken of Bona parte’s arrival in that part, although he was ex pected to visit the frontiers of the north and the 16th military division, previously to the as sembly of Champ-de-Mai. against France was signed by the High Allied Powers on the 11th inst.

VieHna, April 22.—By a courier who left the Head-Quarters of the army of Italy on the 14th, the following intelligence is just receiv ed :— “ It was indispensably necessary to clear j from the enemy the point of Ferrara, which from Dunkirk to Charlemont, are armed and I inglast provisioned. The sluices are put in order, and the inundations will be extended at the first moment of hostility. Field works have been ordered in the forest ofMormale. Meas ures are taken to make entrenchments in the different passes of the forrest of Ar^one. Eve ry place in Lorraine is in a state of readiness. Entrenchments are constructed at the five pas sage* of the Vosges. The fortresses of Alsace are aimed. Orders are given for the defence of the passe; of the Jura and all the Alpine fron tiers. In the interior, the places of Guise, La Fere, "V itry. Soisons, Chateau Thierry, Lan- gres are arming and fortyfying.

It was curious to see the confi dence with nhichthe opposition entered the ring, and the chop-fallen manner in which they retired from it after the punishing they received from lord Castlercagh. At last they bad bat one resource left—to be in a passion ; but we do not apprehend they are very much satisfied with having had recourse to it. Even Mr. Whitbread was not very lengthy, a circnm- stance as gratifying to the house as it was mor tifying to himself.
