VISIT OF THE KING OF THE FRENCH TO ENGLAND.

    It is well known that King Louis PHILLPPEE has promised to pay her
Majesty a visit this autumn. It is now understood that his majesty will
embark at Treport, in the month of September, for this country. His
Majesty will be accompanied by two ships of 74 guns, and four or five
steamers, and will land at Portsmouth, whence he will proceed by
railway to the station nearest to Windsor. His Majesty will remain
eight days at Windsor, and will not visit London.

ROYAL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY.

    The annual meeting of this Society commenced at Southampton on
Tuesday, when the attendance was very numerous, exceeding indeed all
expectation. The distance is so great as to deprive the proceedings of
all interest for this locality, and we do not perceive the names of any
northern competitors amongst the successful candidates.

At a public meeting held on Wednesday, the establishment of an
Agricultural College in connection with the Society was resolved upon.
His Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge attended the show.

MR. JAMES' SCANTY ATTENDANCE.

We observe that Mr. JAMES has now finally absented himself from
Parliament for the session. After a very scanty attendance in his
place, and being absent on all those questions in which the interests
of his constituents were concerned, - although he was sedulous and
noisy enough when he had the slave trade and his own interests to
advocate, - the honorable member has withdrawn himself to Brussels.
