Foreign news. the intervention question--Mr. Roebucks mission to Napoleon — the French Emperor's opinion of recognition. The European papers by the Persia, of the 5th inst, are laden with parliamentary motions and discussions, correspondents' speculations and newspaper articles on intervention. The most interesting event of the week, with reference to this subject, occurred on the evening of the 30th ult., when Mr. Roebuck rose to his motion for the recognition of the Confederate States of America. He spoke advocating the motion, and in his speech gave the following minute account of an interview with the French Emperor on the subject: I was met in the lobby outside some days since by an honorable and learned friend of mine, who said to me, "You propose that the House should address the Queen, to ask her to enter into a negotiation with the great powers of Europe. Now, I have heard to-day, on very good authority, that the mind of the French ruler has changed, an
lace he might have transmitted the paper to Lord Russell, and the latter might have kept it from his colleagues. Such things have happened in the British Cabinet, and we doubt not will happen again. When two men are equally worthy of belief, and of them positively states that he did ascertain things, he is entitled to credit, notwithstanding any denial of the other, who, of course, cannot know everything that the first may have done. No man can prove a negative. We doubt not, then, that Napoleon transmitted the proposition, that it was withheld from Mr. Gray and transmitted to Lord Lyons, and that Lord Lyons, notwithstanding the high encomium of Mr. Gray, had the weakness or the baseness (just as you like) to betray it to Seward. It is perfectly in character with all his transactions at Washington, where he has been the supple and cringing tool of Seward ever since his arrival. To ingratiate himself with that despicable tool of a despicable faction, he has perpetrated an act whic

ppeared to have broken loose; but fortunately slight damage was done, and the expedition returned, with but few casualties to mar its success. One of the most brilliant episodes of the affair was a fight with a gunboat, supposed to be the Pawnee. She was lying in the Stone river, some distance to the right of the scene of action, when suddenly Lieut.-Col. Del Kemper, with a section of Capt. Blake's battery, and a section of Capt. Wharton's Chatham artillery, of Savannah — in all four Napoleon guns — dashed up the avenue leading to Grimball's house, entered the garden, unlimbered, at a distance of three hundred yards, and hurled three shots, one after the other, through the wooden sides. The Pawnee then responded; but by the time we had fired ten or twelve times the gunboat had got up steam and started down the river. Whether she was materially disabled or not I am unable to say; but the external effect of the balls were distinctly visible every time they struck. The Palmetto
ch hat that shaded him from the sun. It was one of those scenes that fill the mind with wonder — that bring the problem of life and the mysteries of philosophy up like bidden ghosts, and, like him whom the reverend ghost of Samuel quilled, sinks back and feasts again. At the southern crest of the circle of hills appeared three horsemen. One of them — the first--was tall, of about forty-seven years of age, clad in gray, and mounted upon a bay horse. Upon his chin was a beard a la Napoleon; his eye of a dark that might be black; his hair of the same; complexion brown. The next was upon a gray horse, clad like the first. He, too, was tall — a gray eye, brown, full beard, brown hair, full forehead, and a pleasant look that indicated. I may be mistaken in this, but I think you are the ones to blame. The third was about the height of the others, but rather broader at the shoulders, though small at the waist. His hair was soft and long, his beard of a Chesnut, the same as his<
