Mr. Seward's instructions to the Northern foreign Ministers.

The Washington correspondent of the New York Herald learns that the instructions which Mr. Seward is proposing to the new Northern Ministers who are to represent us at the various Courts of Europe, are of the most anti-slavery kind, disparaging the Southern Republic, misrepresenting its institutions, and ridiculing the idea of its being able to maintain itself. It is the first time in the history of this Government that the Secretary of State has sent out to Europe in the form of instructions, libels against the domestic institutions of fifteen States of the Union.
