The " Illustrated Weekly News" thus notices this great novelty in the Mechanical Arts :- " It presents to the street passenger the appearanoe of a quadrangular plate-glass window, with elegant intercolumniations. The pavement in front is inlaid with encaustic tiles, and the two piers are fitted with silvered plate-glass, which doubles or continues the quadrangular colonnade. The revolving glass-room, if such it may be called, presents a continually changing aspect as it passes the shop frontage. The whole has a very novel and splendid effect, especially as the various embellishments are peculiarly rich and . fanciful; hut a correct idea, of an ingenious mechanical contri-p"vaE6e"of "this-natnre is not �asiry conveyed by mere desariptioir, and must be seen to be appreciated. As far as the spectator can observe, the window seems to realize the conception of perpetual motion, nd hurrying crowds suddenly stop to coa-template it." E.

Foreign-Office, Dec. 19, 1861. My Lord,-Mr. Adams came to me to-day, at the Foreign-Office, at three o'clock. He aaid he came to ask two questions which concerned himself personally. I interrupted him to ask, whether what he was going to say was by order of his Government, or from his own sense of what he ought to do. Mr. Adams answered that the proceeding was entirely his own, but that he had with him a despatch from Mr. Seward which he was autho^ rised to read to me if he- should think fit to do so. It appeared, he said, from that despatch, that the Government of Washington had not authorised the capture of the two insurgents, Mason and Slidell, and that the United States Government stood quite uncommitted at the time of sending the despatch. I said that if the despatch did not enter into any controversy with regard to the case of Messrs. Mason and Slidell, I should be glad to hear it read. Mr. Adams then proceeded to read the despatch. It commenced by referring with approbation to a speech made by Mr. Adams at the Mansion-house, and proceeded to notice with gratification the sentiments which bad been expressed by Lord Palmerston in a conversation he had held with Mr. Adams in reference to the James Adger. Mr. Seward then proceeds to declare that the American Government value highly the friendship of Great Britain, and lament that certain causes of difference have arisen, owing, as Mi-. Seward imagines, to the want of attention on the part of the British Government to the performance of the duties incumbent on a friendly Power during the struggle in which the United States are engaged. Mr. Seward gives as instances tlie case of communication to the Confederate authorities by Mr. Bunch ; the admission of the Sumter privateer, to purchase coal and provisions at Trinidad, in distinction, as he said, to the conduct of every European State ; and the arrival in the Southern States of vessels laden with arms and ammunition from England. Mr. Seward then proceeded to the case of the Trent, from which ship the two insurgents had been taken. He affirms that no instructions were given to Captain Wilks which authorised him to act in the manner he had done. Neither had the United States Government committed itself in regard to any decision upon the character of that act. The Government would wait for any representation the British Government might make before coming to any positive decision. He desires that if Mr, Adams shall think it desirable, this despatch shall be read to me, ard also to'Lord Palmerston. In answer to Mr. Adams, I touched upon most of the points treated of in the despatch. I did not think it necessary, however, to recur to the case of Mr. Bunch. With regard to the Confederate privateer, I said that I could not see that our conduct had been different from that of France and Holland, or of Spain. The Sumter hail been refused coal from the Government stores at Trinidad, but had been allowed to get coal and provisions from private merchants. The same thing had taken place at Martinique and Curaooa. I did not tind that the rule of twenty-four hours had been observed in practice, but there would be little difficulty in coming to an agreement oh this point. In reoaid to the expoit of arms and ammunition to the Confederate States, 1 had lately read the opinion of the Attorney-Geneva], and believe it was in entire conformity with the provisions-of the Foreign Enlistment Act ; warlike equipment of a vessel was prohibited ; the loading a vessel with arms and ammunition was not prohibited. But, in point of fact, a much greater amount of arms and ammunition had been sent to the Federal States, where there was no obstacle to the export or the import, than to the ports of the Confederate States, which were blockaded. Mr. Adams admitted this to be the fact, and said he had refrained from pressing a more rigorous compliance with the Foreign Eidistment Act for this reason. I then stated to Mr. Adams the substance of the two despatches I had written to Lord Lyons on the subject of the Trent, l told him that & privvte letter I had diiteted Lord Lyons to talk the matter over with Mr. Seward two days before reading to him the despatch. Mr. Adams asked whether the direction to Lord Lyons to leave Washington in seven days was in the despatch to be read. 1 said it was not, and that in case Mr. Seward should aslTwhat would be the consequences of a refusal on his part to comply with our conditions, Lord Lyons was to decline to answer that qvsstion, in order not to have the appearance of a threat. I said that I thought the explanation that the Government had not authorised the seizure would stand in the place of an apology. But the essential condition was, that Mr. Mason and Mr. Slidell should be given up to Lord Lyons. Mr. Adams said that if the matter was stated to Mr. Seward in the manner I had explained, he hoped for an amicable termination of the difference ; he thought that if the Government of the L'nited States insisted on maintaining the act of Captain Wilks, [the United States would be abandoning their doctrine and adopting ours. Mr. Adams asked me a further question, which he said I might decline to answer; it was whether, if Lord Lyons came away, a declaration of war would be the immediate consequence. I told him nothing was decided on that point; we should wait for a reply from America, aud then decide upon our course. I stated to Mr. Adams the substance of M. Thouvenel's despatch to M. Mercier,;1 as I had heard it from M. de Flahault. Mr. Adams said that the French Government had always been very consistent in their maintenance of the rights of neutrals. -He added that he could not pay our Government the same compliment. I said 1 would dispense with compliments ii this matter could be amicably arranged. We parted on very friendly terms. I am, (fee, (Signed) Russell. i,oki� lyons to earl russell, rweived jan. ft. Washington, Dec. 27, 1861. My Lord,-I have the honourto enclose a copy of a note which 1 have this morning received from Mr. Seward, in answer to your lordship's despatch of the 30th of last month, relative to the removal of Mi. Mason, Mr. Slidell, Mr. MacFarland, and Mr. Eustis, from the British mail packet Trent. The note contains a very long and very elaborate dissertation on the questions of international law involved in the �ase. I have not time, before the departure of the messenger, to weigh the arguments, or to estimate precisely the force of the expressions u&ee Cabinet of yesterday morning, and whicjb I have-signed this morning, impose upon you a disagreeable task. My wish would be that, at your first interview with Mr. Seward, you should not. take my despatch with you, hut should prepare him for it, and ask him to settle with the President and the Cabinet what course they would propose. '' The next time you should bnng my despatch, and read it to him fully, " If he asks what will be the consequence of his refusing compliance, I think you should say that you wish to leave him and the President quite free to take their own course, and that you desire to abstain from anything like mena�e." ITALY. (from our own correspondent.) -Turin, Jan. 11. Yesterday the Minister of War had a question put to him in regard to the demolition of the citadel of Messina and of the fort of St. Elmo at Naples. The Minister replied that, of these fortifications, the portions should be demolished which could be employed for the offence of the town of Naples and that of Messina, and those paits preserved which would' be simply available for defensive purposes. As regards the fort of St. Elmo, there are numerous and excellent magazines there which cannot be sacrificed at the present moment, or until the means of replacing them shall have been provided. For Messina the Government is at present studying a system of fortifications, and believes that it would be imprudent wholly to demolish that-which exists, although defective, until it, can be replaced. Meantime the portion which menaces the town has been condemned, and the transformation, if we may adopt such ai phrase, of the citadel will shortly be'eommenced.' The debate on the subject was closed by a vote in favour of the Ministry. In the Senate, a question was put to the Minister of Justice, in regard to the attitude, daily becoming more and more marked, which the Episcopate is taking against the Kingdom of Italy, and in favour of the Pope and the old order of things. The Minister replied that among the bishops there were many who had accepted the new order of the Constitution with" favour ; and he referred in particular to the Archbishop of Monreale, the Bishops of Pinerolo, of Cremona, of Lodi, of Como. Margice, Ariano,and many vicars-capitular. There are others, on the contrary, who have protested against the new order-some, even, in very virulent fashion- such as the ecclesiastical chiefs of the dioceses of Turin, Milan, and Florence. Against those,, as nothing they had said contained anything personal to the ruling powers, the Government had not believed itself called upon to take any Steps. But it had referred to the decision of the judicial authorities the cases of those who, instead of confining themselves to ecclesiastical addresses, had chosen to publish seditious and libellous pamphlets. In this category are the Vicar and the Bishop of Modona, the Vicar of Arezzo, and the Bishop of Florence ; the latter, too, having suspended a divinis some priests who made part of an " association for mutual help ;" the cures of Fermo and Bologna, who have refused the offices of the Church to certain personages known to have adopted Liberal ideas and served the Government. The Minister stated, in conclusion, that the Government would proceed towards the clergy with moderation, but with firmness, and that it would make the laws respected by every one. Every indication denotes that the Ricasoli Cabinet, although incomplete, is consolidating itself. Iticasoli's decided resolve not to give way before any difficulty has foiled all the intrigues of parties. The majority of the Chamber has held frequent meetings, but has always separated without resolving upon anything ; or, at least, after merely deciding to live by expedients and half measures. Indeed, Signor Minghetti succeeded the other evening in inducing it to promise its support, for the moment, to the Cabinet, in the passing of the financial measures. Ricasoli asks nothing else than to be enabled to pass a certain number of measures which will serve to constitute Italy upon her new basis of unity, and then to dissolve Parliament. Meanwhile, the Lieutenancy of Sicily has been abolished, and henceforth Italy is a complete kingdom, with its central government and its provinces like France. As to the brigandage, there are yet here anil there robbers preying on the country, but the great bands which had almost a political physiognomy exist no more. The conscription has everywhere passed off in the most complete tranquillity through the Neapolitan provinceSt The opening of the railway from Home to-Ceprano has been accomplished. Cardinal Antonelli and Mgr. de Merode went along the line the other day ; but became rather alarmed when on arriving at the- station of Ceprano, constructed upon Roman territory, they found themselves surrounded by tricolour flags, and in the midst of groups of men who shouted " Victor Emmanuel and Italy for ever !" The Pontifical train started immediately back for Rome. The Emperor of Austria has visited Peschiera, Pastrenge, and Bivoli, and has now returned to Verona. The police keep on the watch everywhere lest anytOrsini bombs should be flying, like the specimen which was flying in the Theatre Ristori of Verona. The military are filled with enthusiasm and talk of a campaign close at hand. These proceedings on the part of his Apostolic Majesty are regarded here with complete in. difference.__ " Brambles and Bay lbaves,"^$>nb new volume of essays by Shirley Hibber'^ �win contain, in addition to new and curious views. 0f tho economy of K&ture, as exemplified in rural, scenes and occupations, Some novel suggestions of one relations of man and animals to the source _ of xSeing,- and some distinct outlines of a triple philosophy, which will, we have no doubt, attract attention m connection with the Darwinian hypothesis; and, perhaps, are fated to be roughly handled on metaphysical grounds. Signora Mario at Brighton.-This accomplished lady delivered two eloquent lectures, on " Garibaldi and Italy," at Brighton, on Wednesday and Friday last. The town-hall on each occasion waa filled with an audience anxious to hear a lady who, with her husband, bad shared the fortunes of Garibaldi in his last great campaign. Mr. Coningham presided at the . first lecture, and in allusion to the telegram aoBouncing that the American Government would surrender the commissioners, he said that the importanoe of this intelligence could not be overrated, with regard to the Italian question, for with a. oontiTitiaiice of peace he felh assuredJfoat the liberal and enlightened opinion of Europe would render it impoTiaible for any Power? however despotic or overbearipgj to interfere with the just hopes and expectations v'( Italy. (Cheers.) Signora Mario then proceeded witb 'txer lecture, which, partook, in a huge measure, of personal reminiscences. On Fridr.y evening the chair -was occupied by \Mr. White, M.P. The fair lect'jrer dissected with yeat ability the viewB of the tw0 great political parties into which Italy is divided, b"er own opinions being identical with those of Mazzm\. st* concluded by an appeal to the audience to give, as their hearts might dictate, money to Ganb? tfji? in aid of the "lorious cause of liberty in Italyj g0 tj,at they might lift U]i f�ra prayer,. "May God deal by Britain as Britain deals by Italy." (Loud an^l continued cheers.) Mr. Coningham,'H.P., moved i vote of thanks to the lecturer,, observing that that which gave vitality to the Italian cause was the original idea of Joseph Slaz/JDi ; but bofore. Italy wouM be in a position to govorn itself, the influence of priest-ciaft must be destroyed there.- Sifc-uora-.Mario lectured *ft Liverpool on .Monday aighv, ;
