The British Government on a New Tack.

The intelligence from Europe which we published yesterday contains some curious, not to say startling, announcements. It seems that the British Government has entirely changed its tactics with regard to this country, and that it has concluded to concede to us our interpretation of the Monroe doctrine, even to the surrender of Canada and her West India possessions, and allowing, without grumbling, the absorption of Mexico by the United States if the people desire it. The British journals have also changed their tone, and are suddenly and wonderfully friendly to this country, while their correspondents in the French capital are equally complaisant towards us when referring to the Mexican question.-- New York Herald.
