New York, Aug. 19.
--The steamship Bohemian has arrived at Farther Point, with Liverpool dates to Thursday afternoon, Aug. 8th.

The steamship City of Washington and Hibernian had arrived out.

General News.

The London Times is bitterly sarcastic on the battle of Bull Run. The same paper indulges in some hard cracks on the Southerners.

The Times fears that the question of the blockade of the Southern ports will lead to difficult complications.

Lord Palmerston has declared that the entrance by any duty-paying vessel at any blockaded port, wipes out the blockade. A belligerent may seal all ports, but when it lets in a single vessel the right to blockade it is gone.

The London Herald says that when Napoleon heard of the result of the battle of Bull Run, he resolved to recognize the Confederate States.

Ten Broeck had won the New Brighton stakes.


Liverpool Cotton Market, Aug. 8.--The sales of cotton for the week reached 63,000 bales, at an advance of Ȃd. The market closed easier, and the advance was barely maintained. Speculators took 19,000 and exporters 10,000 bales, and the market closed on Thursday unchanged. The following are authorized quotations: Fair Orleans 9¼d., and middling Orleans 8¾d. [This latter quotation, we think, should be 8¾d.]

London Money Market--Console closed at 99¼ a 90¾.
