The Australasian's news had no effect in London. The friends of the North were much disappointed that the reported capture of Atlanta was not confirmed,

while the Southern sympathizers loudly rejoiced. The Morning Post has in editorial denouncing the kidnapping of British subjects for the Federal service, and refers specifically to the case of seven Irishmen who were subjected, in June last, to gross indignities after their release was obtained, and says, if the facts are proved, the British Government should not be satisfied with anything less than the exemplary punishment of all concerned in the out-rages.

The Times has an editorial on the same subject, holding it up to Irishmen as a warning not only against the Federal service, but against emigration to America.

The London Daily News editorially refutes the representations against the labor market in America, and shows that it is in a most healthy state, and offers irresistible attractions to emigrants.

The Settlement of the Danish War.

The arrangement of the Danish question has been confirmed via Copenhagen. Denmark completely cedes the Duchies to Austria and Prussia, together with Jutland and Euclares, the town of Ribe excepted. The occupation of Jutiand continues till the final conclusion of peace. The President of the Danish council communicated the matter to the Rigarad at a private sitting, and on the following day a motion was offered, and supported by a considerable number of members, declaring that the silence with which the announcement was received must not be construed into an approval of the conduct of the government.

Furloughs have been granted to all the Danish recruits undergoing a preliminary drill, and troops are returning to Copenhagen from Funcer. The German papers assert that the Duchies are surrendered in their entirety, without reservation, and Austria and Prussia have full liberty to dispose of them. The Austrian Government has addressed a circular note to its representatives abroad, giving an analysis of the preliminary peace arrangements, and stating all the questions reserved for future disposal.
