Official action of the British Consul.

The Enquirer of Saturday states that the sovereignty of Virginia has been acknowledged by the British Government, through one of its officials. The British brigantine Lilly Dale, from Halifax, N. S., entered Friday morning as the Custom-House, the Captain presenting the Consular certificate of the fact that he had deposited his papers with the words, ‘"United States of America"’ erased. In answer to a gentleman who expressed his gratification of his official action, the Consul, Mr. Moore, said he did what he considered his duty — that no United States laws were in force here, and that he believed his Government would coincide with him in this view.
