SPAINW. Madrid papers of the 121h instant ,announce the arrival of despatches from M. Gastello y Ayenze, dated from ?Rome the 28th of A pril, announcing 'that the concordat was signed on the 27th. The concordat acknowledges the title of Isabella II. as legitimate Queen of Spain, and the validity of th. sale of the national property. The Govern ment has received the ratification of a treaty of commerce between Spain and Morocco. It is said that bitter hatred and suspicion prevail between the. dictator, Narvaez, and ?Mrs. Munoz, the Queen Mother and ex-Regent.'

It founds this opin on shmply on some articles which have appeared in the French and German newspapers, and upon the fact of the Queen 'of Portugal kaving been recognized by Russia.

PROGRESS OF THE RELIGIOUS MOVEMENT IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 22 October 1845
PROGRESS OF THE RELIGIOUS MOVEMENT IN GERMANY. (From the Paris Constliitutionel,) Whilst Puseyism and the debate on Maynooth agitate England, an an alagous movement is manifested in all Germany; A priest, discontented and uneasy, M. Ronge, is trying to walk in the footsteps of Luther and Calvin. Above all, he wages war with the Latin language, and, like Abbe Chatel, he wants mass to be said in the lan guage of the country. But M. Ronge goes much further, and wants to ex tend his reform to other things besides Latin. First of all he demands the complete abolition of confession; next, the-marriage of priests, and the unop posed marriage of individuals of dif ferent religions; and, finally, the com plete independence, with respect to the Court of Rome, of the German clergy, or, to speak more properly, of the German Catholics. M. Ronge has explained his principles, defended them, and showed what he hoped for, in various discourses pronounced at Breslau and other towns of Germany. A seri...

SYRIA.--A civil war, and one of ex termination, reigns at this moment (17th -May) in the mountains, between the Druses and the Christians, and during the last fifteen days, the horrors we have seen perpetrated around us are dreadful. On every side the sounds of batte are heard, and nothling is seen but fire and flames; houses, villages. churches, and con vents, being reciprocally a prey to the flames. We have no; before us the appalling spectaclo of no less than eleven villages and a number of *laronite churches and convents in flames, and what is worse, when the Christians are victorious, they enter the Druse villages, putting to the edge of the aword, men, ,women, and children, the Druses follow their ex ample when they are victorious. All the silk worms of both parties, the sole support of the Syrian population, have been destroyed. The convents of Maronites and Catholics have not been spared ; they have been burned by the Druses. Every arrow is practised on their enemies. The po...

TIE "AGRICULTURAL MIND" AGAIN. SINCE we last wrote on an agricul tural subject, landlordism has been making another of those exposures of itself which bid fair, by and bye, to render " agricultural mind" good dictionary English for whatever is most grovelling and sordid in self ishness, and most .humiliating in mental imbecility. On Thursday se'nnight Mr Hutt brought forward that branch of the Corn-law question with which he had identified him self-the operation of monopoly. in the colonies, with the immediate ob ject of inducing the House of Com mons to extend to our.Australian colonies the privilege already con ferred on Canada, of sending us their corn at a nominal duty.
