Franklin in Southampton. --The Petersburg Express publishes a letter from Col. Marshall commanding at Franklin Southampton county, Va., in which he says the enemy had been driven back on the having attacked him in the morning with gunboats, and made a demonstration on his front in the evening. The Express says: Arizona , it was said that Graham's battery, of the bay, had suffered severely. Inquiries made minority quarter yesterday where we thought it possible to obtain information, failed to furnish any satisfactory details. We hear that three gunboats came up to Blackwater river, and fired several shot and shell; that they were replied to by Graham's battery, and finally repulsed. We hear, also, that our sharpshooters along the banks of the river annoyed the crews of the gunboats very much, and that six of the vandals are known to have been killed.
ely was, was considered out of doors far too private for the interest which the public took in every event connected with the royal family; but the sad bereavement which has so recently taken place made it imperative in this case that the, utmost seclusion should be preserved. So much are people inclined to disbelieve in the actual privacy of royal movements, that the completeness with which it was preserved will hardly receive credence from the public. But so it was; and neither in Southampton, nor Portsmouth, nor Cowes, nor within a hundred yards of Osborne House, was there the slightest indication that the second daughter of the Queen of England was about to be married, or that any event of the slightest importance was about to disturb the daily current of events. It certainly was a strange and solemn sight for a few of the public who flirted about the Osborne road, to see no indication of life about the park beyond a few servants, in the deepest morning, passing almost stea

: The Persia's news caused increased excitement in England and cotton further advanced. The London Times says that it shows nothing much can be accomplished before the fall, and hopes that means may be devised to end the conflict between the North and South. The Chambers have adjourned that the Emperor is re-considering the principles of the Mexican expedition, and the embarkation of troops has been provisionally suspended. The steamship Hausa, which was to have left Southampton on the 25th of June, was compelled to put back to Bremen, owing to an accident to her machinery. The steamship City of New York, from New York, arrived at Queenstown on the 25th, and reported only one of her boilers working. The ship Sailor's Home, formerly the Independence, had reached Liverpool from Havana with nearly two thousand three hundred bales of cotton. France is about to construct reduced models of the Monitor and the Merrimac, in order to test their merits.
Major-Gen. Geo. H. Thomas. --It has been already stated that this individual, who is now connected with Rosecrans's army, is a native of Southampton county, Va. A lady who resides at Jerusalem, the county seat of Southampton, informs the editor of the Spirit of the Age that Thomas distinguished himself in the war with Mexico, and on his return home was presented by the ladies of his native county with a handsome sword.--After the beginning of the present war, and Thomas had determined to array himself against the South, he wrote to his sister to send him that sword. The true hearted, patriotic woman, replied that he could not have a sword presented by the women of Virginia to turn against their brave fathers, sons, and brothers, who were fighting in defence of the land whose birth-place he had disgraced, and that instead of sending the sword to him she would prefer seeing it thrust through his traitorous heart. --Petersburg (Va.)

is constituents at Bury Lancashire, and referred at length to the American war. He pointed out the magnitude of the undertaking, the burdens the North was imposing on itself, and the necessity for England's neutrality. Adverting to the Alexandra case, he said the policy of the Government would be to do as it would be done by, and he hoped when the war was over both sides would acknowledge that England's conduct had been eminently fair.
