France and the Confederacy.

--The Washington Chronicle, of Saturday, confirms the letter of the N. Y. Times in relation to a conversation between the French Minister of Foreign Affairs and Mr. Faulkner, and says:

‘ "The Secretary of State, in a recent letter to Mr. Dayton, our new French Minister, clearly but firmly instructs him in relation to this subject, and wishes him to directly and unequivocally inform the French Government that our own will, in no event, in any way, sanction or permit the separation of the Union--a Union which has not only in the past, but will in the future, confer its benign blessings on the citizens of the United States.--Such, we verbally learn, is but a faint outline of the important correspondence."
