The London news and Star.

These two journals are always quoted in the summaries of foreign news which are copied by the Southern press from the Northern newspapers. The reader has observed that they are always against the South--always defending the North, and re-echoing the lies fabricated by Northern Generals and editors to disguise Federal discomfitures and defeats. They are nothing more than mere partisans of the Northern cause and Northern outrages. The News was always a fanatical sheet — the organ of Easter Hall enthusiasm. The Morning Star is a paper of later origin, and was, no doubt, established by Northern capital to advance Northern interests and malign and traduce the South. The remarkable fact then appears that these two journals are, in England, alone in their opposition to the South and their sympathy with the North. The entire press established in the ordinary course of the enterprise of journalism, and devoted to the support of British interests and reflecting British public sentiment, is, without exception, as far as we have observed, severely denunciatory of the spirit and objects of the war upon the South, and earnest in its expressions of sympathy with the Confederate States. So far as the English press is concerned, then, it is in our favor, all the world to nothing; for the two miserable Yankee-fed sheets do not deserve any consideration whatever.
