FRANCE. On the night of the 22d No. vember, an attempt was made to murder the Duke Decres, Ex-minister of Marine of France. The Duke retired to bed about twelve o'clock; shortly afterwards he was blown out upon the floor by an explosion of gunpowder under the matresses; a second detonation succeeded in a few seconds, and the room was in a flame. The Duke called his valet, who slept in an adjoining cabinet; the latter answered, "I am lost,' and instantly jumped from the window into the street, a height of 40 feet. His shrieks brought the centinels to the spot, to whom he declared that some villains had thrown him out of the window. The Duke made his way out of the apartment, and medical

The firemen, on examining the apartment, found that several pounds of powder had been deposited between the matresses, and ignited by means of a train which led under the door. Every thing appeared to justify the suspicion, that the valet was the author of this horrible_design, particularly when it was discored that bank bills had been taken from the Duke's writing-desk to the amount of 9000 francs. He has since died in the hospital of the injury which he received by his fall from the window.
