We last week published an article based upon a despatch

said to have been transmitted by the Austrian Government to Paris, refusing the Conference. Beater on Monday pronounced the despatch, which was forwarded by a rival company,--who we hope will break up his injurious monopoly,—" apocryphal." Next day it appeared in the Moniteur. It was not apocryphal at all, but instead of being the despatch, was the draft of instructions how to explain the deapatch, and worth twice as much because confiden- tial. The despatch itself contained nothing which the instruc- tions did not, except a request for information as to the fate of the Papacy.
