Smith O'Brien on a war with England.[from the Dublin Freeman, Dec. 5. In a letter addressed by Mr. William Smith O'Brien to Mr. Seward, Secretary of State of the United States, we find the following allusions to recent events: By the recent seizure of the Confederate Commissioners on board of a British mail steamer the Government of Mr. Lincoln has incurred a fearful responsibility. I take for granted that this act will not be disavowed. I take for granted that it was intended as a deliberate affront to the English nation. I take for granted that it was designed as a bold and defiant answer to the insolence which has been directed against the American nation by every organ of British opinion ever since the civil war broke out in the United States.

My Dear O'Gorman --In common with all true friends of the American people, I continue to regard with horror the internecine war which is desolating the States of America. The brutal and disgusting proclamation which has recently been promulgated by General Butler at New Orleans, realizes to our imaginations the worst features of this struggle. Have you and your friends at New York calmly asked yourselves when and how this contention is to end? I implore you, in the name of humanity, to cast aside the illusions with which an occasional triumph fills the minds of the Northerns, and to consider whether it is possible that you can subjugate the South, and whether, if it were possible, such subjugation ought to be desired by the lovers of free institutions.
