ty of Washington was concluded, in accordance with which a Tribunal of Arbitration was appointed, which assembled at Geneva. It consisted of Count Frederick Sclopis, named by the King of Italy; Mr. Jacob Staempfli, named by the President of the Swiss Confederation; Viscount d'itajuba, named by the Emperor of Brazil; Mr. Charles Francis Adams, named by the President of the United States; and Sir Alexander Cockburn, named by the Queen of Great Britain. The Counsel of Great Britain was Sir Roundell Palmer (afterward Lord Selborne). The United States was represented by William M. Evarts, Caleb Cushing, and Morrison B. Waite. Claims were made by the United States for indirect and national losses, as well as for the actual private losses represented by nearly twenty millions on ships and cargoes. The Tribunal decided that England was in no way responsible for the $1,781,915.43 of losses inflicted by the Tallahassee, Georgia, Chickamauga, Nashville, Retribution, Jeff. Davis, Sallie, Bo

ell's speech of March 23, mentioning its better spirit, and the next day reported a long interview with him. On the 28th he transmitted a report of the debate of the 27th, which included speeches of W. E. Forster, Bright, the Solicitor-General (R. Palmer), Layard, and Lord Palmerston. The debate related to the sailing of the Oreto (Florida) and the Alabama, and to the capture of the Adela and the Peterhoff by the United States. but now again we have darkness and storm. But I believe on this qlication table,—how soon, I know not. Whiting has returned to cheer us with good news from England that no more Alabamas will be allowed to make England a naval base. He enjoyed his day with you. But Lord John and the attorney-general Sir Roundell Palmer at Richmond, Yorkshire. Oct. 15, 1863. insist upon defending the concession of belligerency on the ocean to rebel slave-mongers without a prize court. That folly shows that there is more work to be done. We are all agreed against that.

tor, Sir Alexander Cockburn, in his Opinion at Geneva, deeming the Case intentionally offensive in this and other respects, resented the hostile and insulting tone thus offensively and unnecessarily adopted towards Great Britain, her statesmen, and her institutions. Earl Russell, in his Recollections and Suggestions, wrote: In fact Mr. Fish, who succeeded Mr. Seward as Secretary of State, did not scruple to allege that Lord Palmerston and I, the prime minister and Secretary of State, Sir Roundell Palmer, and the law officers of the crown, Sir Thomas Freemantle and the commissioners of customs, were all guilty of falsehood and hypocrisy. Our counsel at Geneva,—Cushing, Evarts, and Waite,—in their argument, call the proclamation the first step taken by Great Britain in her relations to the conflict, and an intervention leading to injurious results. These various terms by which the representatives of our government as well as Sumner describe the proclamation are the same in purport.

g till after his breakfast. I brought him a can of honey from Hymettus; told him what I had seen in Europe,—Rome, Sicily, Athens, Constantinople, the Danube, and the exposition at Vienna,—and described the spectacle I had witnessed when John Bright resumed public activity after a season of prostration, in an address to an immense audience in Birmingham. He listened with interest, and thought I had seen much. On Monday morning, the 24th, I happened to be going by the same train with him to Palmer, less than twenty miles short of Springfield, at which latter city he was to remain a few hours to be received by citizens at a club and dine with S. R. Phillips, in company with Governor William B. Washburn and Henry L. Dawes. We passed two hours or more together in the drawing-room car, during which he was looking over parliamentary blue-books, except when I interrupted him. Once I said, Do you not see how the heart of Massachusetts is with you? Yes, he quietly answered, after a moment'

on the Shenandoah who cannot be immediately proceeded against and detained under legal warrant upon any criminal charge, we are not aware of any ground upon which they can properly be prevented from going on shore and disposing of themselves as they think fit, and we cannot advise her Majesty's government to assume or exercise the power of keeping them under any kind of restraint. The law officers who gave this advice and these opinions, and whose names were attached thereto, were Sir Roundell Palmer, Sir R. P. Collier and Sir Robert Phillimore. In consequence of these opinions of the law officers of the Crown, instructions were sent to Captain Paynter, of her majesty's ship Donegal, to release all officers and men who were not ascertained to be British subjects. Captain Paynter reported on November 8 that, on receiving these instructions he went on the Shenandoah, and being satisfied that there were no British subjects among the crew, or at least none of whom it could be prov

dispatch to Livingston. On May 2 he was in camp near the Obie River, twelve miles from Livingston, to which point the Federal troops, some 5,000 strong, had driven him with his 600 men, and the Federals were then camped within twelve miles of him. On the next day they had come up to within four miles of him, and were pressing him hard. General Morgan then sent Colonel Adam R. Johnson's Regiment (10th Kentucky Cavalry) to Colonel Chenault's relief, and a few days later General Bragg sent Palmer's Brigade also, and all these constituted so strong a force as to save the situation. One of the hottest little fights that Morgan's command ever engaged in was that at Greasy Creek (sometimes called Horse-Shoe Bend) in Wayne County, on May 8 and 9, 1863. On account of the fact that the 11th Kentucky Cavalry bore the brunt of this battle, as well as for the reason that Colonel Chenault's report on it is the only one of his offiical reports I have been able to find, it is here given in fu
The reason why. --Mr. Roundell Palmer, a noted Oxford Puseyite, but one of the best lawyers in England, has lately been appointed solicitor general. The London Spectator explains the reason in the following paragraph: The post of attorney-general was offered to the learned gentleman in the most handsome manner, and as handsomely declined by him, on the ground that he would not consent to have his own claims considered before those of the solicitor-general, Sir Wm Atherton. It was, however, absolutely necessary to secure Mr. Palmer, not only because his adhesion conciliated the clerical strength Lord Shaftesbury's support so often offends, but because a great civic lawyer had become a vital necessity to the administration. The bankruptcy bill can wait, and for law reform the Chancellor is all sufficient; but the Premier needs in the Commons an assistant competent to advise and explain his action on the complicated questions which are likely to arise between our Governmen
r, of the Confederate army, delivered a speech at an agricultural banquet in England in favor of the Davis Confederacy. Mr. Beresford Hope, M. P., made a speech, reiterating his extreme opinions in favor of the Davis Confederacy. Mr. Roundell Palmer, Attorney General of England, stated in a speech that Great Britain could not recognize the Confederate States until they had achieved their independence. Their rights as belligerents must be respected, but Great Britain could do nothing more at present. The London Times, in an editorial on that part of Mr. Palmer's speech which shows that there is no doubt about the spirit and design of the laws respecting the iron-clads seized in the Mersey, says: "The Ministers have not been doubting whether these steamers were designed for the same service as the Alabama, nor whether they could be lawfully dispatched, but whether their suspected destination can be conclusively proved against them. The intent of the law is, however to m
