FOREIGN. By Cable. Tribune's cable special, London, Aiur. 7. Our special correspondent t Cherbourg Cher-bourg writes on Friday : The transports trans-ports fur the fleet will comprise not less than 320 vessels, aud preparations for its departure will take eiyht days. The government has not more than twenty-two ships of its own, and takes possession of all trans-Atlantic steamers. steam-ers. The expeditionary squadron has been strengthened aud will include twelve battalions of marines, each with one battery of artiUery and one battalion bat-talion of Turcos, under Generals Le-Bouf Le-Bouf and Martin. The main force consists of forty thousand troops of the line from various regiments, General Trochiu being Commander-in-Chief. It is well known here that the Danish new.'ality is only ostensible and temporary. tem-porary. The French government can not withstand the enthusiasm with" which Admiral Bouet and his fquad-ron fquad-ron has been received at Copenhagen, and the known sympathies of the people. peo-ple. The secret mission of the Duke Cadore, and the arrival of the French fleet, coincide too nearly to leave any doubt of the course of events. Not many weeks, perhaps not many days, wiil pass before the announcement of an alliance offensive and delensive between be-tween France and Denmark for war. Meantime Bouet blockades the Baltic ports, and when the whole squadron assembles be will bombard Hamburg, Keil, Stettin and Dantez. A service for revictualling aud resupplying the fleet is to be organized at Elsinore, by the Frenen officers who left Cherbourg on Wednesday in the Wrondelle. The Danish government is believed to have authorized taking Elsiuore as a baeof operations, an act more significant than any declaration of alliance. Before entering the Baltic, Bouet captured two gunboats at the mouth of the Elbe, and bombarded Wilhelmshaven, but only to try the guns. No landing was attempted. Eleven river gunboats were sent in sections from Toulon, on Tuesday, to Strasbourg. A new gunboat gun-boat invented and sent from Cherbourg to Strasbou g is a small vessel, in fact nothing mors than a floating gun carriage, car-riage, anl i.s able to carry the largest Brion gun, though drawing only three feet of water. As the letter closed the greater pait of the expeditionary forces were arriving. Metz, 7, 8 a.m. The mor.de of our troops is excellent. It i.s impossible to give the exact figures of our losses. Gen.
