The telegraph, falsifying as it has usually done since it has been arbitratively controlled by the abolition authorities in the North, advised that Mr. Russell, the celebrated London letter writer, had made a speech on his arrival at Cairo, in which he contrasted the Northern forces with those he had seen in the South, in a manner very complimentary to the former. This is all gammon, as the following from the abolition correspondent of the St. Louis Democrat, writing from Cairo shows:

W. H. Russell, the correspondent of the London Times, arrived here last evening from the South. He is very distant and reserved in regard to making any statements of the force or movements of the Southern rebels.

The officers and troops here show a marked coolness of attention to him, and, in fact, very little courtesy. He is accused of having cottoned too much to the Southern rebellion, and has lost his influence and the respect which attached to him before he made his Southern tour.
