ould doubt that it would instantly and indignantly refuse the demand of the British Government.-- It has committed itself to the act of Commander Wilkes, not only through the intimations of Lincoln in his message, by the letter of Secretary Welles, emphatically approving the conduct of Wilkes, and regretting that he had not seized the vessel as well as the Commissioners, but by the act of imprisoning and keeping in prison the Commissioners. If it now submits to the humiliating demand of Great Britain, it will sink itself to a state of abjectness which no nation has ever reached, and become a hissing bye-word and laughing stock through the whole world. If, on the other hand, it rejects the demand, it will be ground to power between the upper and nether milestones British squadrons will blockade every Northern post and open every.

n news, brought to Norfolk from Fortress Monroe by flag of truce boat, and our most sanguine anticipations are more than realized. The Europa brings a special bearer of dispatches from the British Government to Lord Lyone, who is instructed to demand the restoration of our Ministers, and ample apology for the insult to the flag of his country, of his passports. The London Times says that three results must ensue upon the refusal of the Northern Government to yield to the demands of Great Britain: The immediate raising of the blockades at the South--the complete blockade of Northern ports — and the speedy recognition of the Southern Confederacy by France and England.

Effect of the News at the North. The New York Express calls upon the people to "keep cool," yet says it is their duty, "under such a storm, to organize and arm." The coasts, harbors, and lakes must be fortified, and the militia system perfected. "The only way to be respected by England, is, with bayonets in hand, and swarms of privateers ready to launch out upon the seas." The Philadelphia Inquirer whistles violently to keep its courage up, and affects to believe that the rage of the British lion will soon be appeased. Nous nerrons. The New York Herald advocates thorough preparation for defence, and vainly endeavors to conceal its apprehensions of a war with Great Britain. In consequence of the news from England, cotton went up to thirty-six cents per pound in the New York market.
