Smith O'Brien on a war with England.[from the Dublin Freeman, Dec. 5. In a letter addressed by Mr. William Smith O'Brien to Mr. Seward, Secretary of State of the United States, we find the following allusions to recent events: By the recent seizure of the Confederate Commissioners on board of a British mail steamer the Government of Mr. Lincoln has incurred a fearful responsibility. I take for granted that this act will not be disavowed. I take for granted that it was intended as a deliberate affront to the English nation. I take for granted that it was designed as a bold and defiant answer to the insolence which has been directed against the American nation by every organ of British opinion ever since the civil war broke out in the United States. However this may be, it is assuredly an act which is fraught with consequences that may hereafter become most disastrous to both parties who are now contending with each other. Unless England consent to forego all claims to ma

Thouvenel.

wed to publish them. I left home about the 5th of November, with a view to collect some claims due my office for advertising, and to relieve the fears of my family, who were daily annoyed with the calls of drunken soldiers, calling before my house, and flourishing their side-knives and pistols, and making threats of violence. The last week in November I received a letter from Brigadier-General Carroll, inviting me to return, and promising me protection from personal violence. On the 5th of December I received a brief letter from Major Gen. Crittenden, inviting me to his headquarters in Knoxville, promising me passports into Kentucky, and a military escort to conduct me safe. At the same time I was furnished with the copy of a letter to the Major-General from J. P. Benjamin, Secretary of War, advising him to give me passports and a safe conduct beyond the Confederate lines.

they were going on an expedition to work the silver mines of Sonora. --They came down to Mazatlan on the steamer, and thence traveled across Northern Mexico to the Rio Grande. The journey was made on mules, in company, for a portion of the distance, with a merchant's train. The route lay through a difficult and dangerous country, in which they were beset with perils of various kinds; having often to encounter bands of banditti, which now roam the country at will — and sometimes the ferocious Apaches and Lipaus. They came through the several States of Sonora, Durango, New Leon, and Tama plisas taking in the towns of Durango, Parras, Stitillo, Monterey, Serralvo and Mier, in their route, and finally crossing the Rio Grande at Roma. Their overland journey extended to a distance of 1,700 miles. They left San Francisco on the 5th of December, and arrived here yesterday, having been at days on the road. We believe it is the desire of these gentlemen to enter the Confederate service.
