Later from the North. New York papers of the 20th contain some news of interest. They contain dates from Europe to the 9th inst. Lord Palmerston had made a speech at a banquet in Sheffield, in which, while deploring the suffering in that district, he reiterated the intention of the Government not to interfere in the American war. He thought interference would only make matters worse. Mr. Roebuck, M. P., also made a speech, in which he predicted that America would be divided into five parts. The war, he thought, was a useless waste of blood, and not waged for the extermination of slavery. The sales of cotton in Liverpool on the 9th were 5,000 bales. The New York Herald has dispatches from Washington to the effect that "movement of immense importance" would be made by Pope's army in a day or two. The guerrillas at work in Missouri. Sr. Louis, Aug. 13. --A fight took place west of Warrensburg on Friday last, in which three thousand guerrillas, under Quantrel and Hug
Sheffield on recognition. We learn by the latest arrival from Europe that an immense meeting had been held in the open air in the great manufacturing town of Sheffield, which was addressed by Mr. Roebuck in a speech warmly sympathizing with the South. After his address the following resolution was moved by the Rev. J. P. Hopps, seconded by Mr. M. Beal, and carried by an overwhelming majority: That, in the opinion of this meeting, the Government of this country would act wisely, both for the interests of England and those of the world, were they immediately to enter into negotiations with the great powers of Europe for the purpose of obtaining the acknowledgment by them of the independence of the Confederate States of America. Mr. Roebuck, who is the member for Sheffield, spoke with his usual impulsiveness. He stirred up the meeting most decidedly. The cheers which he drew forth were interlarded with strong expressions of dissent. He so riled the fanatics that one

r even the power of seizure. That the shipwrights of a neutral country have a right to make ships for the market of the world; that the right does not lapse on the mere opening of a war in which their Government has no concern; that the actual knowledge of a practical and particular demand in the market aforesaid no more destroys their right than their chance of profit — these, we believe, are conclusions which can be as little gainsaid as they can with regard to gunpowder, rifles, or Sheffield cuttery. So far as the facts of the present case have been, not known, but surmised, it might have been conjectured that Messrs. Laird had every ground for free trade in their business; and we are well aware that certain of the very ablest legists in this country — possibly we might venture to guess that even some who were in a yet more responsible position — at first inclined to the opinion that the international code would afford neither the requirement nor the warrant to arrest the dep<
The cholera abroad. --The United States Consul at Malta, writing to the State Department under date of November 13, 1865, says that for the last three days there had been no cases of cholera on the island, and that if the public health continued so, clean bills of health would be given to the shipping. He says that the cholera has existed on the island for rather over four and a half mouths. The United States Consul at Sheffield also writes, under date of November 23d that although the cholera had approached very near to England — some cases having been reported at Paris, and even at Southampton — no anxiety was manifested there on that account. Some few sporadic cases had been reported in that vicinity, which were generally found on investigation to be merely cases of diarrhœa.--Washington St
