Release of Surgeons. From a paragraph in the New York Herald, of the 7th, we learn that Secretary Staunton has decided to release all the Confederate Surgeons held at the North as prisoners of . The reason of his course is that related unconditionally Dr. Mitchell Maryland, and Dr. Stone, of regiment, taken at the late battle at Manchester, May 28th, ten Federal Surgeons were captured among the other prisoners. They were released upon the field of one Surgeon, who afterwards received the sanction of Gen. Jackson to their act.--Believing it the duty of Surgeons to remain with their wounded who fall into the hands of the enemy, if an opportunity of escape I offered them, and recognizing the rule of war, that medical men are to be treated as , these Surgeons were allowed to pass beyond our lines without excluding the parole. The only demand made upon them is, that they should proceed to Washington and endeavor to get released from parole these Surgeons were held at the Nort
tna on the 28th ult. The London Morning Post learns that, in the absence of any law hearing on the case of the ship Emily St. Plerre, the English Government will refuse to restore her. The surrender of Norfolk and the destruction of the Merrimac is regarded as the retirement of the South from the confest on the water. The rule of Gen.

Beauregard himself retreated from Baldwin on Saturday afternoon to Okolona. The London Times on American Affairs. The London Times, of May 28th, says that "Lincoln was right enough when, in homely language, he described this war as a ' big job.' This is the biggest ' job' of the kind ever seen. No more ninety days business. The insurrection which Seward believed to be waning at the close of the last year, now covers half a continent with desolation and havoc, and we are warned that battles known to be imminent will exceed in severity any hitherto fought." The Times laments the condition of New Orleans, and says that the proclamat
act of these three men as an offence, or indeed, recognizes such an injury suffered by a belligerent. Had an American cruiser met the Emily St. Pierre on the high seas she might have seized her, and the fact of the rescue would have condemned her in international law. But there is no municipal law which can warrant the English Government in delivering her up to that of America, with whose request it is therefore bound to refuse compliance. No prospect of submission, The Times of May 28th, avers that it can see no end of the war in America, nor any indications of what that end may be, and adds: "Of the submission of the South there is as little prospect as ever.

It is added, that the loss of li

Mr. Seward, May 28th, writes to Minister Adams, at London, under the direction of the President, that it is desirable to "confer with the friendly nations upon the prospects of the war and their future course with regard to it. He then says: In explanation of these views, I set forth the opinion that the industrial systems of Western Europe and the United States, including their agriculture, manufactures, and commerce, are, in some respects, to be regarded less as distinct national systems than as one general combination of agricultural, manufacturing, and commercial agencies, in which a jar in one country necessarily produces disturbance in all others, so that a serious disorganization of the machinery employed in production here cannot fall to result in disarrangement, probably in disaster, everywhere abroad. There are n
