Sho brings accounts of the closing of the
Conferences at Taris on the 16th. The
ratifications will be exchanged at the end
of the month. The protocols will then be
'published, and the pruceflings of the Con
gress will bo made known in detail.
From Paris it in stated that diplomatic I
movements of importance toward ttily ap-
appear to be on foot. Count Collnredo is
to go immediately from Vienna to Rome on
a special mission. It in a mivsion refers
only to tho Concordat, bui the Italian jour-

of Italy,
A grand civic banquet was given in Lot.-
don on lire 17th to Mr. Dallas, the Ameri-

I'anmuro stated, on the subject of Great
Kritnin sending troops to Canada, that the
troops were lliose w hich had been removed ;
from the Provinces for the Criiman war,
with their numbers slightly increased.
Tho Cabinet of Vienna is bent on occu
pying every corner of Italy w here a politi-

Launch of tab Adriatic. New York
April! . The launching of the steamship
Adriatic, for the Collins lino, came off this
morning, and presented one of the finest
sights I ever witnessed. Estimates of the
.number of persons assembled to witness
the launch run as high as seventy thousand,
jnd considering that every available spot,
im to thu roofs of houses and the topmasts
Jcl'n.near hr. had its occunanl, there
canuot be much exaggeration in this figure.
The Adriatic i not quite so long aa the
new steamship Persia, of the Cunard line,
but in oilier respect and in capacity abe
bai the advantage, and she may therefore
be designated the largest steamship yet
afloat. Her extreme leogth is 355 feet,
breadth of beam 50 feet, and depth of hold
88 feet 2 iochet. Her capacity, according
in nnstom-houte measurement, is about
3,700 tons, but by Carpenters' measure
ment no lew than 6,900 tons.
The English paper give the de

Me hr I.Mac. The warsteumer Merrimac,
on her late trial trip from Boston to Nor
folk, exercised her shell guns, (200 pound
ers) of which she carries forty. Shells
were fired at two miles range, and nearly
all exploded about two feel under water,
producing terrible commotion. I nree shots
out of four, it is estimated by the ordnance
officer, would sink any ship at that dis
tance. In order to obviate the local at

What a Nkwspaper Does for Noth

erstnnJ what he is talking about, speaking
on this subject, says :
" The result of my oWrvaiion enables
me lo slate as a foci, that publishers are
more poorly rewarded than any other class
of men in the United States, who invest an
equal amount of labor, capital and thought,
They nre expected to do more lubor fjr less
pay, to stand move sponging and 'dead

niary Ios and are oftner the victims of
misplaced confidence, than any other call
