FOREIGN EVENTS. FOREIGN intelligence, since our last, with one exception, has proved but very unin. portant; and had it been less so than it is, our domestic news would have much diminished its interest. The exception refers to a desperate attempt made at Paris to assay. sinate the Duke of Wellington. On the night of the 10th inst. as the Duke was returning to his hotel, a pistol was diecharged at his carriage, the contents of which provi. dentially escaped him, though there should seem to be little doubt as to the diabolical design. Darkness favoured the escape of the assassin. The most active search was, of course, immediately commenced, and the police are said, by private letters, to have obtained such information as may lead to his apprehension. The King, after hearing of the circumstance, sent directly to express his abborrence at so atrocious an attempt. A guard of gens d'armes had since been posted at the door of His Grace's residence.

The French papers, also, confirm the reports as to the infamous atrocities of the new Dey of Algiers, with the exception of the murder of the English Consul's son, which should seem to want further corroboration.

The German papers have reported the peace-establishment of the Confederation, which is to consist of 120,000 men. The proportions to be regulated by the population of the respective territories within the German constitution.

The Congress of the United States have received a message from the President, on the Bubject of the possession of Amelia Island, together with the official correspondence relating thereto.-From South America, nothing more has yet transpired respecting the progress of the patriots. The apparent determination of the Portuguese to retain the possession of Monte-Video, reinforcements for which purpose are said to be on their way for Pernambuco, cannot fail to give umbrage to the Spanish government; it remains to be seen what measures it will in consequence deem fit to adopt.

By advices from Constantinople, it appears, that Ibrabim Pacha, governor of Egypt, has obtained a great victory over the Wechabites, having, it is supposed, by this time, advanced agaiost, and taken their capital. This event is said to have filled the Grand Seignior and all Massulmien with great joy.
