Thiers and Gui xot?Louis PhiUippe?Prosecution of ths Press Oregon Question?Railway Mania?Theatricals and Music?Express Business between Paris and New York?Intended Visit of queen Victoria Postponed Indefinitely. Paris, May 16,1846. The event of the month has been the visit of Ibrahim Pacha. At Court, in the Chambers, on the race course, at the Theatres, and in the Sa lons, the Egyptian Prince has engrossed all atten tion, and beoome the focus of ail looks. The pa lace of Elys4e Bourbon, in the fashionable quarter of the faubourg St. Honorl, has been assigned as his residence, and a cortege of royal equipages have been sent from die King's stables, for the use of himself and his sutte. He has been the frequent guest at the Tuilleries, and the Duke de Moutpensier has been his chaperon to all the public places, an appropriate return for the hospitalities lately shewn to this prince by Mehemet All, dur ing his visit to Egypt. Of all the various specta cles visited by Ibrahim Pacha, that which seemed most to cxcite his admiration, and to impress him with most astonishment, was the Hippodrome ? The splendid horsemanship of Laurent Franconi excited his just admiration; and well it might, for a more beautiful piece of equitation has never been witnessed. In the political arena, here, interest flags, from the unanimity which prevails on ail really essen tial questions. Guizot and Thiers, die two greut parliamentary rivals, and the leaders of the two parties which divide the Chamber, have been long proceeding in convergent lines of direction, the one combining more and more liberalism with liis conservatism, and the. other combining more and more conservatism with his liberalism, so that, at lost, it requires a political microscopc to discover the differences between these two political genera. It is by no means unlikely, that at no very remote period, a fusion and coalition may ensue. At pre sent the difference is reduced to that of tweedle dum and tweedle dee. Small and ineffectual at tacks have, however, still been made on the min istry, in the Chambers, which are repelled by overwhelming majorities. No one attends the Chambers except loreign visitors, who go thero to see the political menagerie. The popularity of Louis Philippe has been vastly increased by the late detestable attempt at assassination. Addresses have poured in troui almost every city and town, not only in France, but in Great Britain; and letters of congratulation at his safety have been sent by die sovereigns of Europe. Meanwhile Lecointe, the assassin, is being fattened for the guillotine, in a smull build ing attached to the Chumber of Peers, the tribu nal before which he will be tried. Hie Gazette de FVance, a legitimist paper, lias just been prosecuted for an attack on the King and the government, before the Court of Assize and a common jury, and a vcrdict of guilty hav ing been obtained, die editor has been sentenced to three thousand francs line and four months nnprisonment. The interest, small as it was at any time, in the Oregon dispute has altogether vanished, and the question is voted a bore. No one in fact believes, or ever did believe, in tho possibility of two nations like the L nited States ana England rushing into a war on a cause so utterly absurd. Such a catas trophe would be a travestie of modern statesman ship. The railway mania has in a great measure sub sided, as well in England as here. Meanwhile the execution of the works upon the bona fide and sound lines is fast progressing. By the time that this letter will have reached you, the great artery of communication from Paris through Amiens, Lille and V alencicnnes to Brussels, will have been opened as far as Lille, and a very short time more will see it in operation for the whole distance. A branch line from Amiens to Boulogne is in pro gress, which when complete will render it possi ble to run from Paris to Boulogne in four hours. We can then breakfast in Paris and dine in Lon don ! In the theatrical and musical world there is no thing new. At the Theatre Francais, K aohel con tinues to attract crowded houses, and during her conge ol two tnondis each year, she commands foreign anil provincial engagements to the tune of an hundred and filty pounds sterling per night. The means of safe and expeditious communi cation between this city and yours are about to be gwitiy augmented. An establishment has lately been Set up here for the transmission of parcels iri correspondence with Adams & Co. of New York ; so that a parcel may be booked here for any of ?lr? i cities, or vice vena. to be trausiuit tod by the English steamers with perlt ct safety, in audition to this, you will have heard that tho liriush mail steamers will ?oou sail weekly, both ,111 tngiand and America,departing iiom each place every Saturday. * llie late abortive attempt at nssassinntion lias produced a decision on the part of Quren Victo ria against the expected visit to Pans, although it has been given out that this circummance hud no reference to the change of determination. The actual circniii-tanoe* were dieses?When the of Nemouri were on a visit with the Queen of England, the latter expressed V2!en.l,0Pi,0 ra"ke her Promised visit to Ire land and Scotland previously to coming to Paris lest lier subjects in those countries should feel the precedence given to France as a slight o To red to them. It was, however, fully understood that J?*' these domestic visits, the royal party was to fulfil the promise given by the Queen to visit her mend, Louis Philippe, in his good eity o( Paris, u ! r* r?3*Ption. of the news of the attempt on the Ida of the King at Fontainbleau. and of the narrow rscape of the royal family, in the very car nag* and on iust such a pleasure excursion as '?ose m which he would have been accompanied by the Queen, a resolution was at once formed that the life of Victoria was too important to be nsked by the proposed visit and festivities. An autograph letter from the Queen was accordingly sent by a confidential officer on the 5th or 6th of this month, announcing to the King of the French the final determination of the British sovereign. This has causod great disappointment in Paris, especially among tie tradespeople and shopkeep ers, who counted on a rich harvest during the royal visit. The number of foreign visitors to this eity at present does not amount to a tenth part of its ordinary amount at this season, which is as cribed to the fact of so many having postponed their visit until the expected arrival ol the Qut-en. Since the above was written, intelligence his reached tins of the arrival of tlie Boston mail at Liverpool on Wednesday night. The resolution p.issea by both houses of Congress has only cor roborated the impressions previously entertained here on the Oregon question, and has entirely dis pelled the doubts ot the very few that wavered upon it. __________ Ciwcih*iti, June 15 18-lfl Expentet of Travelling?Inconvenience!?P au y Stage -Pittsburgh?Urt.

Thmm'it, of Maryland A? the travelling season i iauJ, and you are an out to place your readers ii <cssion of such intell igence ai will facilitato th veiling movements, I concluded to write you a fc . with my route and expenses to this "Queen city > 10 Wost." 1 left New York on Tuesday, at 4 J P. M., by mail pilot line for Phil adelphia, and reached that city, via Bristol, at half pait nine?fare $4. I waa much pleaaed with the comfort, elegance, and speed, of the new iron ateamer, the John Stevens, which you go on board of, on the Delaware. 1 left Philadelphia at 10 P. M., by the rail road, and arrived at Baltimore at 6 A. M.?fare $3. I found the Baltimore can very uncomfortable for night travelling; thoy were erowded, and the passengers p.-nt up in o limited space, without any room to stretch tneir limbs. Feeling pretty well jailed, after a night's travelling, in surh ati uncom fortable position, I concluded to tal.u rest in Baltimore, and remain over until next morning; I left Baltimore Thursday at 74 A. M., by the can for Cumberland, Ma ryland, distancn IriO miles, which place 1 reached at 6 P. M.; passengers have twenty minutes to dine on the road. Tho cars on this road are very dirty and disagrco able ; atonement is paitly made for this want of comfort, by tho conductor, who is a pcrfect gentleman, and one of the most civil and respectful men that I ever met with in that station. At Cumberland, I took stage, at 7 P. M., for Brownsville, for a ride over the mountains, distance 7 J miles; a ride over the Alloghanies, at night, generally forms a night's adventure in a man's life. Previous to taking seats in the coaches, each passengor's baggage has to he weighed, fifty pounds beiug allowed each one; over that weight is charged four cents a pound. This system of rveighing baggage I protest against ; why, the large substantial iron frame trunks which are now made in your city will weigh nearly tifty pounds each, with out'any thing in them. 1 had one of those trunks and a valiso, the two weighing together 130 pounds, to that 1 hud to pay for baggage $3. This 1 felt as very severe; if baggage is weighed. 1 in sist U|>on it, passengers should bo weighed also?for instance, a man weighing 303 pounds, carries 50 baggage, and has nothing exti a to pay ; but a lady, weigh ing 116 pounds, and carrying 135 pounds baggage, has $3 40 extra tg pay ; doss this scorn fair. Quite a haul is made by the proprietors of the line by this o|?rat<oli. The stage ride 1 found exceedingly uncomfortable?nine persons are jammed inside a small coach?the drivers are a surly set of fellows, you can hardly get a civil answer from them?nothing more than monosyllables If you are parched with thirst, in the middle of the night, and stopping at a relay station, inquiie for the well to cool your feverish lips, you receive rio answer, but nre allow ed to find it out yourself. 1 would advise all travellers bv this route to furnish themselves with a tin cup before crossing the mountains of a summer's night, for they will tind it very useful ill refreshing at the well. I do not koow but crossing the mountains at night is preferable to the day in summer, for jou escape the ravs of a hot sun, which must be anything but comfortable; for, al though we had rain with us all the way, there was \ery little air stirring, and the night was sultry end hot, and what with a crowded stage I found myself, for the first half of the distance, in a profuse perspiration ; but as we clambered over some of the mountains, we became en veloped in the clouds which were hanging on them, and felt a sudden cool change of temperature, which soon checked the perrpiration, and gave me such a cold that it took mo some time to get rid ot it. By travelling at night you are unconscious of the giddy hoists over which you travel, and fear le?? of danger which you might ap prehend by day bs to the terminus of your journey. I realized somewhat of these heights at dawn of day, for, looking down from one of them, I saw distinctly the streets of a town, apparently at the foot of the mountain, but which, I was told, was six miles distant. The 72 miles of staging we accomplished without any accident to our stage, and we reached Brownsville by 10 A. M , Friday. The horses are changed every 10 miles, drivers three times on the route?we took sup|*r on the road, 13 miles from the starting point, at a very comfortable inn? where I was surprised to meet with O M n, of New York, who bad halted for the nignt. 1 furnished him with the latest Herald, which he was delighted to get hold of A great gathering was had at the inn for a hall given by the Odd Fellows Society, and the lada and lasses of the mountains were thero to do honor to the occasion. On asoenuing one of the mountain tops, our horses had to turn out of the road to make way for a stage tnat was dashing at full speed down the d clivity ; The horses were running off, and the driver could not check them ; the fight waa alarming, in a dark rainy night, aa we behelu the sparks fly from the horse*' shoes. The ceach waa lull of passengers : we heard afterwards that it upset, and that all the passengers were more or lesa huit?one Ud) very much so At Brownsville I to >k steamboat, which departs immediately on arrival of the coaches, and enjojetl a pleasant sail on the Monoiifcahela 60 milee to Pittsburgh, the iron ctty, which place I reached atrto'clouk Fare worn Baltimore to Pittsburgh, *10 Pa?. aengeis by this rou'e must not fail to take tickets at Bal timore througn to Pittsburgh?tbis saves tbiee dollars. I took a siruli in the evening through tue smoky citj , but saw nothing ahout Pittsburgh to induce ono to linger Ions there I ilropned in at the theatre, a neat bull J m* ; Mrs Mowatt was playing, to a crowdct hou?e. I *as quite amused at tho mode of complimenting a priilt dan teutr, on calling her out to repeat her performance ; my Iriend remarked to me," The spuuk of the pit is up, and now *ou will tee the money fly " 1 did not understand what'this n.cai* ; but at the close of her dunce, suro enough, up went the silver on the stage, in various sums, from a hall-dime to a dollar I was informed that on some occasions, and when mouey is plenty, as much as $100 has been thiown ou the stage, for the beneficiary Truly, this substantial offering must make the demoiselles quite anxious te please their patrons. We have often seen In New York a ahower uf o.uqueti and flowers tail upon the stage , but never saw a shower of silver coin. I left Pittsburgh Saturday morning at 10 o'clock, in steam packet lor Cincinnati, and leached this elty Sun day evening at 9 o'clock, altera sail of nearly 400 miles ; there were two boats starting from Pittsburgh for Cincin nati on Saturday morning, running in oppo.itlon?and I was taken to Clueinnati for f9, and found ; which was cheaper than living st an hotel : the customary fare is M. 1 did not get tired of the sail down the Ohio ; the scenery on the whole route is grand, and the frequent pessing of steamers and flatrboats laden with prodace, and the stopping to woo J, all contributed to enliven the scene. 1 was amused with the wishes of " God speed," and ? farewell"?the waving of hands and hanikerchiefe, from tho stewards and stewardesses of the steamers, as they passed each other; it was done with so much grace and feeling. I mused ou the days of the early settlers of thispartoi the country, from New KnglanU, when the spouse sang to her hu?ban<t, In the progress of their lourn?y? Tls yon ct n reap and plough, lore?and I can delve and sow ( And we'll settle on the banks ef the pleasant O-hi-o. I found very comfortable quarters bare at the Dennison House, kept by Dennisun k Aon The eld gentleman, who has the look and hearing of ? .Senator, emigrated to thii place iruin New Jemey lorty-two yo iru ago, when Cincinnati numbered but 700 souls?now computed at upward* of 100,000, and ranking the sixth city of the Union in point of population. I luund at thin houie Gov.

The Governor is a strictly tem|>erance man, and a member of the Meth odist cliUicli At his inauguration he was conducted to the chair of State, by hi* sou, who had just vacated it to make way for the father? the son being a radical loco foco of the hard money school, aud the father an ultra whig Such a train ot circumstances may never again occur in tho annals of this or any other State. The Gov ernor had an interview with General Wool on Saturday Kx Governor Thomas, of .Maryland, passed through this city a few days since en route for St Louis, to have an interview with the widow of Senator Linn, whose testimony in his suit against his wife he relies so much upon. Mrs Linn is, I am informed, a woman of high tone and bearing, and if she entertains the same opinion of Gov. Thomas, which she formerly did, her evideuco will not be much in his behalf. The public mind is settling down (Irmly in lavnr of Mrs. Thomas, who is looked upon as a much injured woman The whole expense of uiy journey hither, starting from New York <>u Tuesday afternoon, and arriving here the succeeding Sunday evening, amounted to $33?this included living by the way, cab hire, extra baggage, and all incidental ex|iense*.
