Nothing but the occurrence of civil war prevented the completion of this arrangement between this French company and the Virginia Legislature, by which France would have secured a certain and almost inexhaustible supply of cheap coal, iron and timber. All this is fully stated in regard to the resources of Virginia, in a letter of Alfred Paul, French Consul at Richmond, to Mr. Thouvenel, Minister of Foreign Affairs, France, dated June 5th, 1860, and as it may be well to recall the attention of the government to it, a copy will be sent you.

The Russian Government announced that no Government measures, relative to the peasantry, will be published until the 2nd of March. A Parris letter to the London Daily News mentions a rumor which is accredited in official quarters, that Metternich had just communicated to Thouvenel an important note from the Court of Vienna, where it is asserted that the Austrian government would never recognize Victor Emanuela King of Italy.

American affairs in France. The intelligent Paris correspondent of the New Orleans Picayune gives some views of the attitude of France towards the Confederate States of America, which will interest our readers. The letter is dated June 14: "The work goes bravely on!" Judge Rost is well satisfied with the views taken of the course of American politics by the English and French Governments. Lord Palmerston, Lord John Russell, Mons.

The declaration which Mr. Thouvenel thus proposes to make is in these words: Draft of The obscurity of the text of the declaration which Mr. Thouvenel submits to us is sufficiently relieved by his verbal exus declarations as they proposed. These remarks of Mr. Thouvenel are certainly distinguished by entire frankness. It shen as such a treaty it would be unequal.

Two battailous of the Guards were expected to sail on the 18th instant, in the steamers Adriatic and Parana. The Paris correspondent of the London Globs says, that Count Thouvenel's dispatch to M. Mercler, the French Minister at London, is known to have confined the Federal Executive to the simple dilemma:--are the Southerners belligerents or rebels? They have been flatly refused any rights in the first capacity, and in the second the right of asylum acquired by political refugees has been set at naught, and France must make the case of the Trent substantially her own.

"I believe I am correct in saying that Mr. Dayton simply replied that the persons for whose presentation he had applied were ladies and gentlemen who would be received by the President of the United States.
