Groans of the Herald.

It will be seen by an article in another column, from the New York Herald, that the course of Great Britain is beginning to cause decided apprehension in New York. We publish it to show that even the Yankees are forced to put an interpretation upon British policy unfavorable to their own views. The Herald pitches into the London Times, and into Great Britain generally, with great ferocity, and makes mysterious and awful threats of vengeance. It is going to raise Ireland, and to let Louis Napoleon loose upon John Bull. But, unluckily for its programme, the interests of France in Southern staples are only second to those of England, and there is more probability that the two nations will unite in compelling the Yankees to ‘"let the South alone,"’ which is all we have hitherto asked, than to assume a position which will in every way impede the growth and transportation of cotton, rice and tobacco.
