Lincolns set system Abroad

--The London Herald had recently an indignant article on the presence of Lincoln spies in England. It makes complaint that the New York and Washington directives, in plain clothes, infest the Liverpool Exchange; that in dining saloons, and -rooms, and counting rooms, Englishmen must be careful what they say about the Federal or Confederate States, they compromise some one or other, open Lafayette to their business partners in New York or elsewhere." It speaks scornfully of suspicious characters," who follow people about and thrust themselves into situations, where they may listen to conversations, and act as spies for the Government at Washington. This infamous system is pronounced to be unbearable, and the Government is called upon to put it down in England.
