is Southern writer the grapes of European intervention are scar, but, whatever may be his motive, he has uttered good sense on this great question. An armed interference in the quarrel would be a fatal mistake for any European Power. When the South has expected the enemy from its soil it may be entitled to act for recognition; but its frontiers must be both icon and kept by us own exertions. A demand for foreign interference.--the blockade ought to be raised. [From the London Herald, (Derby organ,) Sept. 16.] There is a degree of Inhumanely in the attitude on this question assumed by the European Powers which seems to us to call for the sternest censure. We are standing with folded arms and a placid expression on our faces, while America is being made in desert, and Americans, most valiantly, are hacking one another to pieces. Will it advantage us at all that the spirit of the country should be broken, a whole generation of young men slain or maimed in the cruelest of unj
mber of draymen to the City Council for an increase of their charges, which was referred to the appropriate committee. An ordinance was passed amending the 16th section of the ordinance concerning the powers and duties of the Assessor of the city taxes. Mr. Grattan presented the petition of George Kinornaging relief from losses incurred in the construction of the new City Alms-House. Referred to the appropriate committee. Mr. Grattan presented the petition of Hancock, Frost & Derby, for remission of class of $100 for 1862, $75 of said amount was ordered to be refunded. Mr. Denoon, Chairman of the Watering Committee, presented the report of the Superintendent of the Works, from which it is seen that the receipts for water rents and the sale of lead to the Government for the year ending March 1st, 1863, and the disbursements for the same time, are as follows: Receipts for water rents, $11,585.14 for bridge iron sold, $18lead do, $28, 3.80; wood sold to poor-house $1

States Government either claimed the right of opening and using the mails, or expected that the English Consul should do so, and hand over to them any correspondence which they suspected. He wished to know if it was with these instructions the noble Earl had expressed himself satisfied. Earl Russell, who was all but inaudible, was understood to say that this order had been modified, but that the practice was in a great degree sanctioned by the decision of Lord Stowell. The Earl of Derby said that nothing could be more monstrous than this claim on the part of the American Government; what was still more astonishing was that her Majesty's Government should in any way acquiesce in it. The Marquis of Claricarde hoped the Government would take the matter into their serious consideration. Lord Chelmsford asked if there was any truth in the report that four more British vessels had been seized, as stated in the evening papers. Earl Russell said that Government had re

They will say to you as they will to Russia, as France, at least, will say to Victor Emanuel: This has been going on long enough. It becomes a nuisance and must be put a stop to. "There is another fact you are not to lose right of. Englishmen, as well as others, have pride of opinion. They are not willing to be found in the wrong. Now, there is scarcely an Englishman of either of the great parties, from Derby and Palmerston, Russell and Gladstone, down, who have not committed themselves to the success of the rebellion.--There is scarcely an Englishman of any political reputation who has not expressed, over and over again, the opinion, not to say wish, that the National Government can never conquer the rebel States. The Liberal Press — I mean the Times, Morning Post, Saturday Review, &c.--have been as decided and as contemptuous in the matter as the Herald, or John Bull, or Press. The nation, wit

en who, whilst their courage was exalted in an extraordinary degree by the conviction that nothing could be worse than defeat, were inspired with an unshaken faith in the genius and ability of their General. To follow Jackson they knew was to march to certain victory; and, if it was necessary that success should be purchased at the cost of many lives, that reflection did not dispirit them; for the cause in which they were fighting stripped death of all its terrors. The London Herald, (Derby organ,) of the 27th, says: He was animated by the spirit which rendered the soldiers of the Commonwealth irresistible in fight — which carried Havelock through incredible dangers to the gates of Lucknow in triumph. The Christian and patriot soldier achieved the last and greatest of his successes in dying for his country. He perished doubly a martyr, and in his last breath attested the righteousness of the cause which he sealed with his blood. The Northern Republic has produced no he
Derby by the fact that the races at Ascot are attended almost exclusively by the upper classes, while at Epsom all classes mingle in inextricable confusion. The Queen never went to Epsom, but always to Ascot. This year the Prince and Princess of Wales were present, the first time that royalty has been represented for three years. The attendance was very great, and the performances exciting. Our countryman, Mr. Ten Broeck, was in the list, but none of his horses were successful. Now and then some good grows out of this institution. Mr. Naylor, the owner of the winning Derby horse, sent five thousand dollars to the Mayor of Liverpool, to be distributed among the charitable institutions of that city. He also gave his jockey the same amount, and his trainer fifteen thousand dollars. It is not often that a successful turfman is so liberal Mr. Naylor, however, could well afford to be liberal, for the aggregate amount of his winnings exceeded two hundred and fifty thousand dollars.
eir programs. In Russia imperial decrees have been issued, directing, in view of the present state of affairs, a fresh levy of troops for November. The Russian note, delivered to France on the 17th, is asserted to be conciliatory; all the six points are assented to, but an amnesty to all laying down arms is proposed, instead of as armistice. The Polish insurrection continues active. An important debate took place in the House of Lords on Polish affairs. Lords Russell and Derby had agreed that it was not a case for armed intervention, and England could do nothing further than submit proposals, which she had done. Lord Derby deprecated diplomatic interference. The debate was considered by the London journals decisive of the policy which England would pursue. England. There was great anxiety to learn the final result, it of the battle between Lee and Meade. The London Times refers to Vicksburg and Port Hudson as the principal struggles that are to
says the condition of the country is on the whole satisfactory. The revenue has fully realized its expected amount. The commerce of the United Kingdom is increasing. The distress in the manufacturing districts has been to some degree lessened and there is reason to look forward to an increased supply of cotton from various countries which have hitherto but scarcely supplied our wants. The Morning Herald asserts that the Government will do nothing for Denmark. It is rumored that Derby and Disraeli will make strong attacks on Lord Russell, and that the Cabinet, except Russell and Gladstone, are prepared to support Denmark. Miscellaneous. An embarge would be placed on German shipping at Copenhagen on the 2d. The fleet at the disposal of the Danish Government, it is said, will be more than equal to the service of forcing the embargo. It is asserted that Napoleon is more resolved than ever to take no active part in the Danish question but leave the difficulties
Russell and the Opposition. Those who believe that the attacks made by the Earl of Derby, in the House of Lords, and Mr. Disracil, in the House of Commons, upon the foreign policy of the present British Ministry, indicate any change of that policy with regard to the war raging in this country are doomed, we fear, to be disappointed. The English people always process a vast deal of sympathy for nations struggling against oppression; but it is of a nature so delicate and abstract that it never leeds to anything more important than the inspiration of a poem or the manifesto of a popular meeting, or possibly to a speech or two in both Houses of Parliament. There is something pleasant in the refined and sentimental grief which the higher classes especially of England are wont to feel and express for Poland clanking in her chains, or Hungary trodden under feet by a tyrant, or the Confederate States bleeding and fighting the barbarians, who are fast converting them into a desert.

Interesting Foreign news. The European news, to the 20th ult., is interesting, and we give below some extracts: The Alabama and the steam rams in Parliament. In the House of Lorde, on the 11th of February, the Earl of Derby, in asking Lord Russell to produce the correspondence between her Majesty's Government and the United States in reference to the Alabama and other vessels built in England, from which the United States apprehended injury, said: The noble Lord had refused to lay on the table the correspondence with regard to the rams built in the Mersey, on the ground that they were now under judicial consideration. He understood that the rams were detained by an order of the Government in September, and that they were seized in October, From that time to the 6th February no steps were taken to obtain a judicial decision as to the legality of the seizure. On that day an information was filed which might have been filed in October or November, and in that way the
