Efforts of Confederate agents to obtain French interference in American affairs.
--Letters received at New York by the last mail from Europe
, from high and reliable sources in Paris
, says the New York Herold,
mention the fact that strenuous efforts are being made through the Chamber of Commerce and other organizations, by rebel agents and others, to induce the Emperor Napoleon to interfere in American affairs.
It is alleged, also, that Prince Napoleon is using his influence in this direction, and that in his interviews with the Emperor
, since his return to France
, he favors the rebel cause.
The writer, who is on intimate terms with the Emperor
, asserts positively that there is not the slightest danger of an interference in any manner whatever by the Emperor
with affairs on this continent.--his sympathies, he says, are all on the side of the Federal Government
