e whole Yankee loss, on that occasion, has been well ascertained. It was 1,064 men killed and wounded, of whom more than sixty were buried on the field of battle. The article of the London Times is founded upon this letter of Russell's, and is eminently characteristic. It persists in making no distinction between the Southern people and the Yankees, although nature itself has created so marked a difference, and notwithstanding we are at war at this very moment. It classes us all as Americans, which, in British parlance, means Yankees, and makes us responsible for at least one half of the Yankee meanness, in tolerance, insolence, and cowardice, which it sees fit to reprehend in no very measured terms. It indulges in shouts of laughter at what it considers the ridiculous issue of a combat between two armies numbering together one hundred and fifty thousand men, American valor is divided by the valiant writers of the Times, themselves the most valiant of men, on the authority of

The dominant feeling in England on this unhappy quarrel is one of unfeigned and bitter sorrow. If Americans labor for one moment under the impression that the successes or reverses of one or of the other ion of the combatants will awaken anything like partisan feeling in this country, they are most grievously mistaken" News of the defeat in Manchester. In the exchange some of Manchester, when the defeat of the Unionists became known, there was much excitement among these present, principally American captains and brokers.
