Intervention.

The letters from the New York Herald's Paris correspondents state that the Count de Persigny arrived in London on the 11th of June, about two days before the debates occurred in the houses of Lords and Commons, and the essential point of the whole subject is to be found in the assertion that the Count was entrusted by Napoleon with the negotiation of the terms of a plan of ‘"mediation"’ with England. The assumption obtained a very general credence in Paris from the fact that the Patrie of the 11th instant circulated the following paragraph in larger type than usual:--‘"We are assured that negotiations are about to commence in London to arrive at an under standing which may enable proposals to be made for a mediation in American affairs. If the negotiations in question succeed, the mediation of England and France will be tendered simultaneously, and in identical terms, to the belligerent parties."’
