The Times on the United States Senate and foreign nations.

The London Times observes, among the latest proceedings of the United States Senate, "a rebuke to all foreign nations who have presumed to judge American affairs by American facts." It refers to the series of resolutions moved by Mr. Summer, condemning the spirit of Mr. Sumner's dispatch to the French Government rejecting its proposal of a mediation. These resolutions "regret that foreign Powers have not frankly informed the Southern States that the work in which they are engaged is hopeless." The Times pertinently asks: "What evidence has reached Europe that enables it to give any information of the kind? The very measures just passed by the expking House of Representatives point the other way. They leave the impress of party passion and despair. They have little of the calmness of strength, or the quiet assurance of victory. " We call attention to an admirable article from the same paper on "Federal Devastation," which will be found in another column.
