e people show unmistakable signs of not permitting the war. This they may do, the more so as John Bright, their apostle, sees through the schemes of the Palmerston Cabinet, and is already busily counteracting them. months ago I warned you in my letters that France and England were inimical; that they would surely seize the first opportunity to recognize the Davis Government. Recent events prove that I was but too correctly informed. I may now add that the Government has signned to Great Britain its willingness to recognize the rebel Government at once, and that in case the Lincoln Cabinet refuses to deliver up the rebels, Slidell and Mason, both England and France will do so — thus setting an example to the world of the extreme length to which jealousy of liberal institutions will drive monarchial Governments. The honesty of such a proceeding is upon a par with the antecedents of both this Government and that of England. Had the Americans recognised the Canadians during th

Unfortunately, the Pays and Constitutionnel do. It was these worthy sheets that made the discovery about the Spanish waters turn of affairs and they own to having imbibed the idea from the last letter of Dr. Russell.--How handy all that will be, and how easy the transition of the English, French, and Spanish fleets from Mexican to American waters. Mr. Seward was but too well in spired when he asked for increased fortifications along the coasts. England evidently means war, and has meant it all along. She has waited in hopes that the North would meet with serious reverses; but now, that the star of the Lincoln Cabinet seems brightening up, England will strike are too many successes are gained.

ess than fifteen thousand men to guard three hundred miles of railroad and three hundred miles of frontier, exposed to "bushwhackers" and the forces of Gens Floyd, Wise, and Jackson. The Northwestern pass into it was fortified and held, Cheat Mountain secured, the rebel assaults there victoriously repelled, and the Kanawha Valley occupied. A march of one hundred and twelve miles over bad roads brought you upon Floyd's entrenched position, whence the rebels were dislodged, and chased to Sewell. Finally your patience and watchingi put the traitor Floyd within your reach, and, though by a precipitate retreat he escaped your grasp, you have the substantial fruits of victory.--Western Virginia belongs to herself, and the invader is expelled from her soil.

f Examiners, who will rid the service of the disgrace, and soldiers of the lacubus of incompetent and worthless officers, who hold the positions and receive the pay without having the will or the capacity to perform the duties of their positions. Remember, you are fighting for your country, for your flag for your homes. Your enemies are implacable in their hatred of you; there is no measure of falsehood to which they have not resorted to blacken your good name, and their leaders, Beauregard and Jeff. Davis, have dared even in solemn proclamations to calumniate you, charging you with crimes you abhor. From these men you have nothing to expect. You must prepare to teach them, not only lessons of magnanimity and forbearance towards the unarmed and defenceless, but to thrust their calumnies and their boastings down their own traitorous throats. Let not a moment be lost in your preparations for the task before you. W. S. Rosecrans, Brigadier-General U.S. Army, Commandi
