The Confederate Commissioners.

--A New York letter, of July 25th; says:

Private advices from London, received yesterday by the steamer New York, say that the Commissioners of the C. S. A. (all three of them) had returned from Paris. Though not countenanced officially, a leading commercial authority hints that the Manchester Cotton Lords were hand in-glove with them. It is also mentioned, as a significant fact, in the same connection, that the vacancy occasioned in the British Cabinet, by the retirement of the Minister of War, is likely to be filled by Mr. Gregory, M. P. from Galway, an individual who has made himself notorious for his unseemly zeal in urging, in the House of Commons, the recognition of the Southern Confederacy.
