Southern Commissioners in France.

The New York Times (the same paper which started the infamous libel in connexion with Richmond and the Prince of Wales,) has a cock-and-bull story about an interview between Louis Napoleon and certain Southern Commissioners, in which the latter applied for French aid and the former refused. All false, like the Richmond canard. The Southern States have sent no Commissioners to France or any other foreign country. Their cotton is more necessary to Europe than Europe is to them, and they have no wish, no intention, nor necessity to look for the means of security beyond the limits of the South.
