Richmond, May 13, 1863.
The Quebec Journal says that news had reached that city that fifteen regiments had been ordered from England to Canada, in consequence of the American (Yankee) Ambassador having notified the British government that, in case the iron-clad steamers now building for the “Emperor of China,” should be allowed to depart, it will be considered an equivalent to a declaration of war against the United States. The Canadian journals also say that nine vessels had left England for Canada with arms, ammunition, and military stores, six of them being bound to Quebec, and three to Montreal.--Charleston Mercury.
