The recognition question.

--That bit of the foreign news by the Australasian bearing more directly perhaps on the question of recognition than any other, is the following paragraph from the London Army and Navy Gavette. of the 11th inst.

It is believed that Lord Lyons who is expected to return to Washington in the course of this month. will be placed in a position to define the course and views of her Majesty's Government, without any uncertainties or doubts in view of the various phases which the contest in North America may assume, and that Ministers have arrived at positive conclusions and have determined their policy in reference to the affairs of the United States before his Lordship's return to his post. The views of Russia are, it is believed, assimilated to those which the mirth of events and inexorable logic of facts place broadly and clearly before the Government of the Queen and that of his Imperial Majesty.
