ragraph in the Washington letter of a city contemporary, published yesterday, relating to the capture, by the Hessians, a few days since of Francis K. McLaughlin, son of H. C. McLaughlin, Esq., formerly of Alex and Rita, but now of this city, may lead to erroneous impressions. The "lad" never was a pet of Daniel Sickles — but his father living in sight of the Washington jail, where Sickles was confined for his cowardly and unavenged assassination of Key, was moved by compassion to visit him every morning, and usually carried with him a bouquet. He was not "a pet" of Sickles, because he used to tell him that he ought to "have shot his wife before he shot Key." As to Mr. Highland being a spy of Lincoln our in formant is not positive; but he is certain, from a letter we have seen from Major Beale, in command at the Hague, that Highland has returned to the Virginia shores after a week's trials and exposure in the woods, and, no doubt, can and will give a good account of himself.
not. The separates existence of the Confederate States is a fact as weighs a necessity; the impossibility of reducing them is demonstrated. Can Europe wait any longer before recognizing them? Will she require that they shall have taken Washington? That will be asking of them what was not asked of the Greeks, the Belgians, or the Italians sufficed for the recognition of the independence of these peoples that they were masters of Athens, and Milen.

[From the London Times, Sept. 16.] The people of the Confederate States have made themselves famous.

Russia and Prussia. Frankfort on the Main, Feb. 28.--The Frankfort Journal, of to-day, states that the form of convention between Russia and Prussia, as drawn up at St. Petersburg, has been considered by the Berlin Cabinet to be of too general a character. The Prussian Government has requested that its bearings should be more distinctly defined.

summer has set in. But we don't believe that even that much consolation awaits them. We can easily understand their impatience to defile Charleston more foully than New Orleans. They are already equating down in imagination in those majestic old churches; stationing whole regiments of their foreign braves in that specious and famous Orphan Asylum, which has sheltered and reared so many poor children of every nationality, and taking for their officers' quarters the stately old mansions of the Haguenot and Cavalier aristocracy. --All and more than they have done in New Orleans do they expect to perpetrate in Charleston. But, if ever there was a possibility that Charleston could fall unmutilated into their hands it has been annihilated by their fiendish and beastly conduct in New Orleans.
