Latest from Europe. Seward's Rejection of French mediation — the Confederate loan — the revolution in Poland, &c. hich payment was required by the British ultimatum. Mr. Seward's dispatch, rejecting the Emperor Napoleon's last proposonsiderable comment: The London Times asserts that Mr. Seward. If not, preternaturally right, is incomprehensibly wrong; and after quoting and commenting on Mr. Seward's view of the position of affairs in its article, concludes as follows: "ffairs is consistent — consistent, that is with all that Mr. Seward has written from the beginning. It is the very story, wuch rather leave to be decided by events than argue with Mr. Seward at present." The London Morning Post is very bitteooks upon it as mere "buncombe." It says: "Perhaps Mr. Seward expects to gain in Washington, amongst certain classes, replied to the proposition of mediation made by France. Mr. Seward considers it impossible to open immediate negotiations f<
The New York Democrats. We are not at all surprised at the facility with which the Northern Democrats have vaulted from their position of opposition to the war to a fervent support of Abraham Lincoln and his Stars and Stripes. We expressed at the time our conviction that not the slightest confidence was to be put in anything they might say or do. John Van Buren in particular was begotten by the most unprincipled politician that even New York ever saw, (with the single exception of W. H. Seward.) and he could not be the legitimate son of Martin unless he was perfectly unreliable in every word and action. It is a matter of little importance, however, what they may say or do. They cannot be more united than they were at the beginning of the war; more ferocious and intent on destruction. We fear their arms less than their arts. --They have been slaughtered like sheep wherever they have invaded Virginia, and a like fate, we verily believe, awaits them in the future. They may howl
"the call of the nation, in her great agony, (for five hundred thousand men,) should reach every heart." We have no doubt it will; but the sensations produced will be anything but agreeable. The nation (meaning thereby Lincoln & Co.) may call with all its lungs; but when the details of the ghastly carnage at the Wilderness come to be known, the call will awaken "an agony" of horror in every heart which it reaches. The natural response will be, "Why don't you go yourself? Old Abe, W. H. Seward, Washington Chronicle, and other bellicose throats of the nation, all nearer the scene of conflict than those you call upon, why don't you girl on your swords and hurry to the bloody banquet you are so fond of inviting other people to?" But all these remonstrances will be of no avail. The five hundred thousand may as well make up their minds to follow the five hundred thousand who have gone before them.--And if they have not the courage to resist Lincoln's standing army, what may th

aryland. There are few citizens of the United States, lost as they are to the sense of liberty, who will not turn from reading it with an apprehensive thought of Seward and the "tinkle of the bell" at his right hand. We publish some extracts from this correspondence, which has been aired in nine columns of a New York paper. The17th you will please have everything prepared to arrest the whole party, and be sure that none escape. It is understood that you arranged with Gen. Dix and Gov. Seward the modus operandi. It has been intimated to me that the meeting might take place on the 14th.--Please be prepared. I would be glad to have you advise me frequo send from Frederick to Annapolis? Please answer at once.

w in the field, and bring our needful military operations to a prosperous end, thus closing forever the fountains of sedition and civil war. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the city of Washington, this 17th day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the independence of the United States the eighty-eighth. Abraham Lincoln. By the President: W. H. Seward, Sec. of State. The New York World, commenting on the above, says: There is danger that the call following the draft will be as ineffectual as the draft itself. The danger must be met and overcome. The time is too short — only two months, and then another draft or a conscription. The local machinery to forward volunteering has been broken up by the operation of the draft — the State and township bounties are not available, and the private means formerly used to assist volunt
, if that were not enough, Lincoln has over and over again indicated his determination to submit to anything rather than have a foreign war on his hands till he has settled the present "rebellion." Nothing, absolutely nothing, would be hazarded by England by the resolute assertion of her national dignity; and yet she, the proudest and the most powerful empire of the earth, permits herself to be dragooned by the pitiful and contemptible Cabinet at Washington, to follow the beck and call of W. H. Seward, to be snubbed upon any and every exhibition she makes of the slightest disposition to maintain her rights and honor. She must now turn herself into a policeman to chase Confederate officers from the shores of her provinces, and deliver them over to Yankee dungeons and an ignominious death. What a downfall from the time when the very touch of British soil emancipated the captive, and converted even a "chattel into a man."--Should she continue this course of submission to Yankee dictatio
w York and Baltimore papers of Wednesday, the 3d instant, and the evening of that day. More Alarms for the Yankees — a plan to burn the Yankee Towns. We have some very strong election cards in the Yankee papers. The first is gotten up by Seward, and is contained in the following official dispatch: Washington, November 2, 1864. To the Mayor of Buffalo: This department has received information from the British Provinces to the effect that there is a conspiracy on foot to set fire to the principal cities in the Northern States on the day of the Presidential election. It is my duty to communicate this information to you. W. H. Seward. The next is a grand description of a land battle, in which the sentinel was "shot at" and the ball lodged in "two feet" of him. The point attacked was a town called Castine, in Maine, on the Canada line. A flaming telegram says: A small party of men approached from the rear, and when challenged immediately fired up
Still later from the North. We have received New York and Baltimore papers of the 4th instant and that evening. Gold in New York on Thursday closed at 232½. The general news is uninteresting: Secretary Seward had sent a dispatch to the Mayor of New York city similar to that forwarded to the Mayor of Buffalo, to the effect that the State Department has been apprised of rebel designs to carry out grand plundering and burning raids in the principal cities of the Northern States on election day. Mayor Gunther, replies that he has no apprehension of anything of the kind being attempted in New York city; but that, however, he will take all necessary precautionary measures, and "if Federal aid is necessary," will promptly avail himself of it. He has also issued a proclamation to the citizens, counseling quietness and avoidance of all acrimonious discussions in the vicinity of the voting places, and suggesting to each elector that on the deposit of his ballot he shall immediately
f marque is a measure which will give France a fresh annoyance, and which may lead to serious complications between the two Governments. The gusto with which Yankee privateers would avail themselves of such license may easily be imagined. Mr. Seward could not restrain them, even if he had the disposition. Such prospects of wholesale plunder would be too tempting for the sternest Yankee virtue. It would be useless to point out to them that by embarrassing the relations of the United Statese of Representatives, and take himself out of the country, or be drifted into a war with the United States. If it were Lord Palmerston, we should have no hesitation in predicting his course.--He would immediately make a profound obeisance to W. H. Seward, pack up his carpet bag and be off. But there is some national and military pride in France. She is never unprepared to fight, and therefore may be disposed to risk conclusions with Brother Jonathan. The only mischief the United States can i
The insulting letter of Mr. Seward, refusing to receive the amount raised at a fair in England for the benefit of the Confederate prisoners, and distinctly imputing to the English the crime of being the authors of all the troubles in America, is received by the London Times with commendable meekness. Not a spark of resentment or spirit lights up its sluggish comments on that remarkable document. The British Lion is a designation which can hereafter be only ironically applied to Great Brish Lion. That king of beasts disappeared with them.--It is not possible that he is still in his old cage, when Brother Jonathan can poke the longest kind of pole into it every day without eliciting a single roar. We agree for once with W. H. Seward when he says that England is responsible for the present calamities of this continent, and that our once prosperous and happy States are now the scenes of almost unparalleled bloodshed and misery, the responsibility rests upon Great Britain.
