The Paris papers of Sunday republished, from the Memorial Boni&

lais, a mite purporting to lie from M. Ferrer, Minister for Foreign Af- fairs of Spain, to M. Guizot, calling on hint, in rattler belligerent terms, for explanation respecting the blemish refugees in France and their intrigues on the frontier. M. Guizot ores questioned about this note in the Chamber of Deputies on Wednesday ; When he denied having received such a communication.

The Commerce announces that 3I. Guizot had caused 150,1100 copies of his speech of the 28th November to be struck off for the purpose of circulating it through France. and that it had been already tlistributed to the 20,000 electors of Paris.

The Semaphore de Marseilles of the 5th instant states that the French squadron of the Levant was taking in provisions and refitting in all haste, but that it was doubtful whether it could leave Toulon before two months. Two frigates, the 1phigenie and Uranie, were preparing to sail fur the island of Bourbon.

The Couvrier de its Cdte d'Ov states that the National Guards of the district of Couterium repaired to the election in large numbers, singing " La Marseillaise," and that all the officers returned belonged to the party " du Progt as."

The Journal des Dehats says that the Prince de Joinville is to have the charge of the remains of Napoleon until they are deposited in the Invalides. "His Royal Highness, therefore, will have the command of the Normandie steamer and the whole of the escort until the arrival at Courbevoie. On reaching the bridge of Neuilly, the Prince will come on shore, superintend the landing, and follow the procession at the head of 400 sailors. His Royal Highness is instructed not to permit any communication with the steamer during her passage, nor to suffer any one on board to land, except for provisions."

General Month°Ion has petitioned for permission to attend the funeral.

It is stated in accounts from Cherbourg, where the Belle Poule frigate with the body of Napoleon arrived on Wednesday week, that the greatest anxiety was evinced by the p.-ople to see the coffin. The whole of the coffins are stated to weigh 4,40011*.

The mahogany coffin, which enclosed the remains at St. Helena, and was exchanged for the ebony one brought from France, was cut up by order of the Prince de Joinville, and distributed iu pieces to the officers and men of the Belle Pottle and Favourite.

The Paris papers continue to dispute about the "arrangement direct" between the Sultan and the Pasha. M. Pontois has written a despatch denying that he ever attempted it ; and the Opposition wipers plead this as an exculpation of M. Tillers.
