Good effect of American news in Europe.
our independence to be recognized in February, if not Sooner.
&c, &c., &c.

[Special Dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch.]
Norfolk, Va., Jan. 26.
--Two passengers came over under the flag of truce to-day, namely: Lieut. J. J. Whitehurst, of Washington, N. C., and Lieut. Wool, formerly of the U. S. Navy.

The New York Herald, of the 24th, has been received here.

The steamer ocean, arrived off Cape Race, on the 23d inst., is at the port of New York, with European dates up to the 9th inst. The news in Liverpool of the solution of the Trent difficulty produced a good effect upon the markets. Consols rose one and one-eighth and cotton one cent.

The political effect of this setlement is not noted.

The Confederate steamer Sumter had arrived at Cadiz to refit, after having captured three Yankee vessels. The U. S. Consul at Cadiz protested against allowing the Sumter to enter the port, but the Spanish authorities decided that if the prisoners she had captured were delivered into the custody of Spain, the steamer should be sheltered. This was accordingly done by the gallant commander of the Sumter; and with colors flying his vessel was brought into port.

The steamer Nashville is reported to be nearly ready for sea.

The King of Prussia is very ill.

In Greece the people have been greatly alramed on account of a violent earthquake.

Nothing of interest has been received from France.

The London Herald, says that even if the Mason-Slidell affair is amicably settled, both England and France have sufficient inducements on commercial grounds to recognize the well-earned independence of the Confederate Government, and that unless such a step is manfully taken by the British ministers, and that at once, the independence of the South will certainly be immediately recognized by the British Parliarment on reassembling next February, the sixth.

An express to New York sets forth that it is utterly impossible for the Yankee army of the Potomac to advance under Ninety days.

The storm so long prevalling over Northern financial troubles is still of the greatest interest, and not even the brilliant reports of the Somerset victory have the effect of bringing tranquility to the disturbed condition of money circles. Bonemian.
