England and France.

The New York Tribune in reference to the report that England and France have assured agents of the Administration of their hostility to the Southern Confederacy, says it is altogether improbable that any such agents have been sent, for the simple reason that ample means are possessed by the Administration of learning the intentions of France and England without employing secret agents, and it has been well known from the beginning that the slaveholders possess no hold whatever on the sympathy or respect of any part of the civilized world. The slaveholders hold them by their interests though, which is the only rule of action which nations recognize.
