Russell's speech at Blairgowrie. --The pretensions of Great Britain to supremacy upon the ocean have been, ever since the battle of La Hague, in 1699, a subject of constant irritation and annoyance to all the independent nations of the earth. They produced the armed coalition of the Northern powers, with the Empress Catherine at their head, during our first revolution. They led to the bombardment of Copenhagen in 1801, and to the infamous assault upon the same city in 1807, when the whole Danish fleet was taken possession of, in a time of profound peace between Denmark and Great Britain, merely because the British Ministry thought it might possibly be used by the French. Immediately before this occurrence, by a mere Order in Council, the British Ministry declared the whole coast of France, which at that time extended from the mouth of the Elbe, in the North Sea, to the port of Trieste, on the Adriatic, in a state of blockade, although the combined fleet of the whole world coul

The leading paper of Wurtemburg advocates the calling out by the Diet of 100,000 troops from the minor States, and the keeping of a reserve of 200,000 more in readiness to march. It is expected that the Danes will defend the Dannevicks, on the frontier of Schleswig, to the last extremity. A brigade of British artillery was under orders to embark for Copenhagen. The French Monituer has a correspondence from New York, stating that discouragement is spreading in the South, and that the army of Lee is demoralized. The Archduke Maximilian demands that the vote of the Notables which offered to him the crown be ratified by the vote of the principal cities. The Mexican deputation was expected to return with this vote to France in February. Then the Archduke will immediately assume the scepter, and visit Paris as Emperor of Mexico. Spain wil

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 to England. The war on the frontier of India is at an end. The Alabama was on the watch for vessels fifty miles south of Ranjour on the 5th of January.--[This puts at rest the Yankee rumor from San Francisco, pu

The London Times, in an editorial on American affairs, says it sees no advantage on either side and no foreshadowing of the end. It says that "the only thing certain is that there will be no intervention, and that the Americans will work out the result by themselves." The Danish War. The advices from Denmark say there has been no additional fighting in Jutiand. A semi-official Copenhagen paper says that Denmark has not acceded to the armistice, as it cannot entertain the surrender of Duppel, nor consent to the present position of affairs being the basis for the suspension of hostilities. The Times' city article has a report that the conference on the Danish question is arranged to take place at once. A dispatch from Vienna states that the conference proposed without a detailed basis or armistice has been accepted by Austria and Prussia. The territorial integrity
The atrocities of the Yankees. In a letter to his Minister at Copenhagen, dated 14th April, 1863, Seward said: "It looks as if, by another year, we can put down the rebellion by starvation, if in no other way." This was the first hint of that system which has since been deliberately and persistently followed by the Yankee armies, and which has given rise to cruelties such as the world has never witnessed since the irruption of the Northern barbarians into the provinces of the Roman Empire, unless, it may be, in the war of the Turks upon the Greeks, or in the civil war, of Mexico and the Spanish States of South America. The Yankee Government has systematically engaged in the project of starving eight millions of people, men, women, and children, whom it has found it impossible to subdues by force of arms. In the pursuit of this horrible object the simplest dictates of humanity are utterly disregarded. Murders are of every day occurrence, and still more numerous are the instanc
Things in General. The great object of all the Yankee raids, at this particular crisis, is three fold. First, they hope to starve eight millions of people into submission, as intimated by Seward in his letter of instruction to his Minister at Copenhagen. Secondly, they hope to starve the population of Richmond into the humor for hailing them as deliverers. Lastly and principally, they hope to starve Lee's army, and thereby force him to abandon his position. These are hopeful projects, it must be confessed, and well worthy of the brain that conceived them. The only fault with them is that they are altogether inoperative. These raids may cause a vast deal of private distress; in some instances they have already ruined individuals. But instead of making any man more desirous of peace, they only excite the spirit of vengeance, and stimulate to continued exertion. They make the Yankee name more hated than it was even before the war, and that is the very spirit which we are gla

A train on its way to Sherman is said to have been captured at Altoona. The Tallahassee. The Gazette says: The Tallahassee still continues her depredations. A telegram from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, reports the capture of seven vessels on Sunday last. Another telegram from Thomaston, Maine, announces the capture of twenty-five vessels off Mactinicius. Rock. All the latter were, most probably, fishing schooners. Settlement of the Danish Difficulties. The Asia, at Halifax, brings the intelligence that the arrangement of the Danish question has been confirmed via Copenhagen.

The arrangement of the Danish question has been confirmed via Copenhagen. Denmark completely cedes the Duchies to Austria and Prussia, together with Jutland and Euclares, the town of Ribe excepted. The occupation of Jutiand continues till the final conclusion of peace. The President of the Danish council communiche silence with which the announcement was received must not be construed into an approval of the conduct of the government. Furloughs have been granted to all the Danish recruits undergoing a preliminary drill, and troops are returning to Copenhagen from Funcer. The German papers assert that the Duchies are surrendered in their entirety, without reservation, and Austria and Prussia have full liberty to dispose of them. The Austrian Government has addressed a circular note to its represen
t Britain, at least, has any right to throw the first stone at the Yankees, for they have but imitated her example, and, perhaps a little, improved upon it. To "Copenhagen," the fleet of a neutral power was, at one time, a well understood phrase. It meant to go into a neutral port and take all the ships of war lying there in a time of profound peace as the English served the Danish fleet at Copenhagen. This is not exactly a case in point, except in so far as it was a prenatural act, for the ships taken at Copenhagen were Danish ships, not lying in a neutral port. But Yankeedom need not despair of being able to justify any atrocity by English example. Copenhagen were Danish ships, not lying in a neutral port.
