England's opportunity. --Now is England's opportunity. It may never again occur. Seized; and Great Britain remains for all time the leading power among the nations. Until the last ten years her supremacy was undisputed. Since the conquest itical power is as desirable to England as its association was valuable to the North. The present opportunity offers Great Britain an ally more valuable than that of the whole European continent, ensuring her predominance in the family of nations, ghteous as they are impossible of concession. The exigencies of the cotton question rendered a collision between Great Britain and the North inevitable with single reference to that special subject. But deeper causes and more general consideraons as with men, "There is a destiny which shapes our ends Rough hew them how we may." In all the career of Great Britain, so checkered over with crises and eventful periods, there never was a moment so pregnant as the present with her fut

The following passages, translated from a note sent me by his Excellency Nalar Bey, in behalf of the Viceroy, show that in the facilities for obtaining Egyptian cotton our manufacturers are placed on an equal footing with those of Great Britain. The note is dated October 18, and is in reply to some interrogatories which I had verbally made to the Secretary: "Monsieur le Consul General: I have had the honor to report to his Highness conformably to your desire, what you have say organize."

Though this seemed to be regarded by the Consul as a matter of common duty, we were much impressed with the incident. It was a striking illustration of the paternal and patriarchal care which the British Government takes of the humblest of its subjects. Here were two or three dignified officials of Great Britain, on different parts of this continent, putting in train a correspondence, in the midst of extraordinary obstacles, for the purpose of communicating from one humble British subject to another humble British subject such intelligence as that we have mentioned above. Who can wonder that Englishmen, no matter how far they wander from England, always speak of it as "home," and no matter how long they live, always love to the end a Government which not only treats them as subjects, but as mem
