The extraordinary session of the Swiss Diet was opened on
the 17th instant. The President merely uttered a few formal sentences, and then a Committee of seven members was appointed, with whom the deputations from each Canton will communicate. A report will then be drawn up, and presented to the Diet. It appears to be the general expectation that the resolution of the late Diet in sending to the French Government the documents relative to the affair of CONSEIL will be approved of, but accompanied with a note declaring that no offence towards France was intended.
