English public sentiment.

Col. Lamar, of Georgia, than whom there could be no more competent witness, confirms in his late speeches the fact are animosity asserted by all visitors to England, that the public sentiment of the cultivated classes in that country is entirely with the Confederacy. This does not influence the nation of the British Government, nor is it any induration that the policy of that Government towards our country will ever be changed. We do not entertain the least hope of such a result. Nor does Col. Lamar. No power on earth ever pursued a more selfish and inhuman policy than that of Great Britain to the Southern Confederacy. Next to the Yankee, the present Administration of England is our worst enemy on earth. We make no exception of Rustle for Russia, while she holds to the same principle of neutrality as England, and can chilly confesses that she would like to see the old Union restored, , matterial and comfort to the Yankees. If she had given them seventy thousand Cossacks, as the British Government has seventy thousand , she might then rival England in her practical to the Southern confederacy. All this, however, should not make us in different to the friendship of the part of the English people. We would rather have their friendship than their . We to return syorprathy with contempt. We should show their that we know how to dicriminals Berwyn them and Government. They are not responsible for the course of their Ministry towards the late States any more than for their course toward Poland and Italy. rejoice that the moral gentlemen of civilized mankind in our favor.
