France and the United States.

The last foreign news brings the information, which, of course, all anticipated, that Louis Napoleon had demanded of the Washington Cabinet a disavowal of the act of its Minister, Mr. Adams, in granting the pass to a British ship to convey arms to a Mexican port. Lincoln will most assuredly have to make the proper explanation and apology for that rascally and impertinent act of his Minister, whether he thinks it "meritorious" or not. He cannot afford to fight more than one antagonist at a time. The Southern Confederacy is quite enough to occupy all his means and war powers for the present. He will "swallow the Leek."
