The News. Our columns are filled this morning with interesting intelligence from all quarters.--We are compelled to defer the publication of many extracts and communications. The leading topic of street conversation since Saturday morning has been the prospect for the fact of a recognition of the Confederate Government by England and France. We do not know that any official assurance to this effect has been received by the authorities, but a report of this nature is in general circulation. We refer our readers to the copious extracts from European journals, which, it will be seen, plainly foreshadow a probable demonstration. The skirmish at Mathias' Point, of which we gave an account on Saturday, is confirmed by advices from Washington. There is no truth in the rumor that Hon. A R. Boteler was wounded in the Manassas battle. It was his son.
A report confirmed Washington, Aug. 17. --Six Federals from the Resolute, in attempting to land at Mathias Point, were fired on, and four of them killed.
