Sir E. Bulwer Lytten's opinion on American affairs — Russell favors the Northern idea — the Mexican Intervention question.

Farther Point, Oct. 8.
--In consequence to recent events in Japan, the English war vessels on the China station had been ordered a Jeddo.

The steamer Great Eastern was less seriously damaged than at first represented. She will repair and resume her trips to New York.

Edward Bulwer Lytton said at a dinner in Herefordshire that he had long foreseen the rupture in America, but he thought it would lead to happy results, both for the safety of Europe and the civilization of America.--The breaking up of the American Republic was not a failure of Democracy. Any other form of government would have equally failed in keeping together the sections of a community so geographically vast and will interests so antagonistic to each other.

Mr. Russell, in his last letter to the London Times, says he has no doubt whatever of the ultimate power of the Northern and Western States to subjugate the seceded States if they put forth all their strength.

The London Post publishes a treaty between England, France, and Spain for an immediate intervention in the affairs of Mexico. There is no intention of waging territorial war, but a combined naval force of all the powers will occupy the principal ports on the Gulf, sequestrate the customs revenue at such ports, retaining one-half and paying the rest to the Mexican Government. If Mexico sets the allied powers at defiance, an effective blockade will be instantly established.
