Virginia now in London, which we published Monday morning, and from which we reproduce the following paragraphs: The more reflecting and intelligent English and Frenchmen feel that they have held and promulgated erroneous views; but few dare assume the task of teaching the opposite.--When I first went to Paris, at the end of July, it may be said that every newspaper was against us, some negatively, and others not only positively, but bitterly. Soon after three brochures--one by Hon. T. Butler King, one by Judge Pequet, (whose charming lady, by the way, was from Richmond,) and a third by M. Ernest Bellot des Minieres — made their appearance. Immediately, almost, the tone of the press changed. In a single day twelve of the journals of France came out in long and very favorable criticisms upon M. Bellot's pamphlet. I certainly never saw a more strongly marked revulsion upon any subject than that of the French press upon this. So much for pamphleteering in France. The same rem
our by officer Seal, on a charge of obtaining by false pretences, a buggy, saddle and bridle, and $497 in bank notes, from King & Lambeth, a manufacturing firm of this city. From the testimony given in court, it appears that the accused went to KingKing & Lambeth's establishment on Tuesday evening, about sundown, represented himself as a Colonel to the army, and said that he wished to purchase a buggy and saddle. He had no ready money to spare, but produced a pay roll for four months service, froms therefore concluded, and the buggy, &c., were sent to a place designated by the "Colonel." Soon afterwards, however, Messrs. King & Lambeth, having thought the matter over, became suspicious of something wrong, and went to the Adjutant General offid the duplicate "Wm. N. Walker," a fact which was not discovered at the time of the transaction. The document received by King & Lambeth was not the paper drawn up in Colonel Smith's office, for had either himself or his clerk ever seen to before.
Hon. T. Butler King. This distinguished gentleman, who has been in Europe for some time past on a mission connected with the general interests of the confederacy, arrived in this city on Saturday evening. He is stopping at the Spots-wood.
Visitors to the City. --Among the visitors to the city, now sojourning at the Spotswood Hotel, may be mentioned the Hon. T. Butler King, of Georgia; Gen. Loring, Gen. Reed, of Kentucky; Judges Moore and Burnett of Kentucky; Judge Swann, M. C., from Tennessee; Hon. Messrs. Barksdale of Mississippi, Bruce of Kentucky, and Col. Cenat Zulaskowski. We must not omit from the list of arrivals of distinguished visitors at the Spotswood the name of Miss Martha Haines Butt, of Norfolk, the beautiful and gifted authoress of "Leisure Moments," "Anti-Fanaticism, " and other works of sentiment and fiction. The inauguration of our President takes place to-morrow, and we look to-day for a large influx of visitors.
of the late Yankee victories. I am confident no recourse will be had to the draft in Savannah; it would be a stain upon her escutcheon that would not soon be wiped out. There appears in some quarters a great ignorance of what has been done and the means to accomplish the same at the command of the Secretary of the Navy. A New Orleans paper assumes to judge Mr. Mallory, and to request his resignation. The Republican, of this city, takes up the refrain, and modestly points out the Hon. T. Butler King as a proper person to fill the place. Without saying a word against the eminent abilities and the many services rendered to the South by that distinguished gentleman, I will merely say, all the clamor that has been raised against the inefficient working of that Department is founded upon very unstable ground. Any one conversant with the capacities of the country and the work now being done in Richmond, and Charleston, and Savannah, and in every large seaport of the Confederacy, wi
Resolved, That they also report the increase in the production of cotton in India and elsewhere, since the year 1800 to the present time. That they also report all statistical facts, within their reach or control, from which a satisfactory opinion may be formed in regard to the effect, propriety, and necessity of an approximation to free trade and open ports, on the part of the Confederate States. That said committee report the extent of the production of tobacco in the Confederate States--the principal markets in which it is sold — the extent of duty imposed on it in England and France--and the most practical means for securing a reduction of the duty on tobacco by commercial interchanges of articles free of duty, or otherwise. The resolutions were adopted, and Hon, W. K. Sutton, Ex-Gov. J. H. Hammond, H. J. Fisher, W. F. Leake, and T. Butler King, appointed the committee. The Convention soon afterward adjourned, to meet in Columbus, Ga., in the month of October next.
Direct trade. Hon. T. Butler King, who has visited Europe to secure the establishment of lines of steamers from European ports to the ports of Georgia, has made a report of the results of his mission to the Legislature of Georgia. His effortscial people, and the above company seemed averse to enter into any engagements as regards the management of steamships. Mr. King then directed his attention to France, in addressing a memorial to the French Minister of Commerce. --He succeeded in inxtending a Southern line from Bordeaux to the West Indies, to the same port. This was accomplished after great labor by Mr. King. Mr. King's next step was to form a contract with Mr. Frederick Sabel, of Liverpool, for a line of steamers from that poMr. King's next step was to form a contract with Mr. Frederick Sabel, of Liverpool, for a line of steamers from that port to Savannah, on the payment of a subsidy of one hundred thousand dollars as soon after peace as possible, which he was authorized to do by the laws of Georgia.
carpeted with spoils of another kind. Now, if any one asks what has become of the Union party, once so strong at the South, we answer that , in part, they have been alienated from the Government by the unjustifiable on targes committed by wicked or thoughtless Federal soldiers. At Beaufort, South Carolina, tombs were violated. At Holly Springs, Mississippi, a communion false was used in behalf of 'euchre' and 'old sledge.' Such tales of wrong have infuriated many who were disposed to be friends of the Union, and their righteous indigestion has had something to do with reverses that have overtaken our arms." The Enquirer also quotes, with indignation, a letter from an officer, written at Camp Saxon, Beaufort, South Carolina, in which he says: "The splendid mansion once occupied by that arch-rebel, T. Butler King, is on a Georgia island, and we stripped it of everything. I write this letter on his writing desk, which, with his plano, was presented to me on my return."
