Lord Palmerston, in a speech at the Lord Mayor's banquet, deplored the American war. He said England would have interfered, but for the belief that it would have been in vain.

The Emperor Napoleon had delivered his annual address to the French Legislature. In relation to his war in Mexico, he says it is one which "France may look on without fear, and support without discouragement." Of the war between the United States and the Confederate States he says nothing. With reference to Poland, he says that an European Congress must meet and decide her destiny.--He contends that the treaties of 1815 are broken up, and that, though Russia is his friend, Poland must be free. A Paris letter says:

‘ As you will see, he touches Mexico very lightly, and develops no particular policy there, because, as in the affairs of the United States, he has no fixed policy to develop. Upon the Polish question his speech is, on the whole, in Paris considered warlike. A Congress of European sovereigns, to tear up the treaties of 1815 and make a new map of Europe; and, failing this, war "sooner or later."The Bourse took the alarm at this programme, and although in anticipation of a peaceful speech, it had gone up early in the day; and, upon the publication of the speech, the rentes went down twenty centimes. The journals of this morning publish the speech without any "appreciations." It takes a Parisian editor at least twenty-four hours to get his ideas in shape in so important a matter. It is said that the applause was very faint upon Mexico, but overwhelming when the Emperor spoke of the annihilation of the treaties of 1815.
