European News. ENGLAND. — The bill for the abrogation of the Navigation Laws passed the House of Lords without material amendment on the 19th and has received the royal sanction. — The bill will go into effect in January. The British Government repudiate all cognizance or sanction of the proceedings of the French in their treatment of the Romans. The English journals express a high degree of satisfaction, at the prompt measures taken by the New York city authorities on the occasion of the Astor House riot. The Cholera has again appeared in England, and several cases have ocurred in Manchester and other parts of the country. At Paris the disease is making most frightful havoc, even more so than in 1837. Upward of 11,000 deaths have already occurred, and in one day there were about 900 cases and 600 deaths reported. Marshal Bugeaud and many other persons of eminence have fallen before this scourge, which has also broken out anew in Silicia, Vienna and Presburg, and is raging most fear...

THE MERCHANTS' EXCHANGE. In view of a call for a meeting at 3 o'clock this day at the new store of Messrs. Mellus, Howard & Co. of subscribers to the Merchants Exchange, we desire to set the matter of its origin on our own responsibility at rest. We have for months deemed the erection of a Merchants Exchange indispensible, and been ready to subscribe for the accomplishment of any feasible plan. Many attempts have been made and after partial success abandoned. We therefore devised a plan, in our judgment best conforming with the feelings of merchants in the present unstable basis of business affairs, viz: — an individual responsibility, extended to one year, requiring from the merchants a fixed outlay. Our plan succeeding, we therefore without hesitation made necessary arrangements for the erection and completing of the edifice at an early day, and by last Steamer and other opportunities despatched orders for papers from all parts of the world. We now in confidence look f...
