The South Lancashire election resulted in the success of Gladstone; but his two colleagues are conservatives. Mr. \Y altou, o|f the London Times, was defeated in Berkshire. Constance Kent had pleaded guilty of the murder of her brother, and was sentenced to death. The scene in the court was very painful. The prisoner showed fortitude un til the emotion of the judge in passing sen tence caused her to burst into a flood of tears. Every one was dbeply affected. It is understood there was no likelihood of the sentence being carried out. It was asserted at Vienna that all Polish and Hungarian political prisoners will be amnestied. It is rumored in ministerial circles in Mad rid that the Spanish representative in Chili will be dismissed on account of the late ne gotiations he conducted with Chili. ‘ Advices from Constantia state that half the town of Cassadia had been destroyed by fire. Many lives were lost. The damage was es timated at twenty millions piastres. The cholera had almost-entirely disappear ed from Alexandria. It was also decreasing in Constantinople. Commercial.

Davis.— TheNew York Herald of the 2d inst. says— According to common report there is a movement on foot in the city, among the friends, personal and political, of the late President Jeff. Davis, now in durance vile, to secure for that personage the ablest coun sel in the country for his defence, before whatever tribunal he may be brought tor trial. The proceedings of the committee are thus far quite informal and* the organiza tion not entirely complete, but enough has developed to show that Davis has a number of ardent friends and supporters here, in of ficial positions, and in the profession, who will do all they can to hasten the day of his trial and secure the best legal talent to ap pear in his behalf. From Cairo.— New Orleans dates to the 27th ult. are received at Cairo: Maximilian is expected at Matamoras soon. Gen.
