The Federal Spy system in great Britain We copy the following affidavit from the London Index. It was made by one of the workmen employed by J. & G. Thompson, shipbuilders at Glasgow. It was made in reference to the attempt made by the Yankee spies to suborn them to give evidence that might be used against the steamer Pampero: "On the 17th day of October last Mr. Archibald Brodie, formerly carver and gilder, Buchanan street, Glasgow, called at my house in Govan, proposing to sell carved trusses, &c. On the Tuesday following he called again about the trusses: but before he left he introduced the subject of the steamship Pampero, when he proposed that I should call on him at Balloch to inspect the trusses. I did not go to Balloch. On the evening of the23d of October last, on going home from work, I found him waiting for me at my house. After waiting some time. I accompanied him on leaving, when he proposed we should adjourn to a tavern in Govan. When there he again intr

The situation in Europe. --The London Index, thus pictures the "situation" In Europe at the present moment: At this time every member of the European family stan stormed to the teeth, and each for the last few years has spent a greater proportion of its resources than at any previous epoch in preparing itself for deadly striate against the others. To meet in family council at such a time could at worst precipitate by a very brief period what must inevitably come otherwise; it is far more likely that it would avert the danger.

Gen Joe Johnston. A late number of the London Index has a review of a book written by an officer of the British army, who, not long ago, made a tour through the Confederacy, from Texas to Richmond, and who is described as a gentleman of remarkable intelligence, and a writer of no ordinary ability. Though rather inclining to the Northern side when he first visited this country, on account of his prejudices against slavery, personal observation converted him into a warm friend and admirer of the Confederate people, and of their heroic struggles and sacrifices in this war. He speaks with fervor of the unsurpassed courage and devotion of the private soldiers, and is eulogistic of the Sparian firmness of the women who have given their sons and brothers, not only without a murmur, but with pride and joy, to the defence of their country. This officer visited the camp of Gen. Joe Johnston at the time Grant was besieging Vicksburg, and he mentions one fact which we do not recollect to

Position of leading English statesmen. --The London Index, February 4th, in speaking of the position of the leading English statesmen on the American question, remarks thus: Four-fifths of the House wish the Confederacy should be recognized, but do not choose to pass such a vote except on the responsibility of a leading statesman; and no leading statesman is prepared to take the responsibility of recognition. Lord Derby will not do it; and the Tories cannot come without Lord Derby. Lord Russell will not do it, and Lord Palmerston dare not throw him overboard. And in truth, except Lord R Cecil, we doubt if any prospective Cabinet Minister would dare to hazard his position by making the proposal.

A Scarcity cotton Threatened. Mr. McHenry, author of the "Cotton Trade," is stated by the London Index to have written a letter to the Standard, in which he says that the total stock of cotton in Europe and the Federal States on 1st January, 1864, amounted to but 2,000,000 of bales, of 400 pounds weight each. Of this stock the Federal States possess 400,000 bales, leaving but 1,600,000 for Europe.--Of these 2,000,000 bales, six-sevenths are of a quality so inferior as to be useless for all kinds of manufactures, unless with the admixture of a large proportion of the better sorts, which it is impossible to obtain.--Such is the supply. As to the demand, it is sufficient to observe that in 1860 the manufacturers on both sides of the Atlantic apparently used up 6,000,000 --really but 4,500,000--that is, only the latter quantity was taken by people using and wearing cotton goods, Supposing the wants of the world to be what they were four years ago, and deducting 300,000 bales that
The Daily Dispatch: June 6, 1864., [Electronic resource], The Confederate cotton loan in
The Confederate cotton loan in England. --the following are the three last quotations of the Confederate cotton loan in London: April 21st54½ April 28th58½ May 5th67 The London Index: says that at the last named quotations there was "a very fine market." It says: The operations have been on London, Liverpool, and French account. It seems that the large houses interested in the cotton trade have at length made arrangements to take quantities of the stock as fast as they can secure it, to make its privileges available in obtaining supplies of the staple. The result is that the few parcels floating in the market have been cleared at the advance, and that it will shortly be difficult to get any quantity, save at a further enhancement. Rumors have been circulated of the prospects of fresh loan engagements. These are authoritatively extradited, and for two very good and sufficient lessons. First, that though more than one offer for a new loan has been made,
