Condemned out of their own Mouths — In the instructions which Mr. Toombs, as Secretary of State, gave to privateers, we find the following passage: “Neutral vessels, conveying enemies' despatches, or military persons in the service of the enemy, forfeit their neutral character, and are liable to capture and condemnation.” If we had applied this general rule to the Trent, she would have been lying in one of our harbors as a prize.--Cincinnati Times, Dec. 2.
