We repob'tah this extract only by way of exjo* nj ihe utter ignorance of the London Tmt't of tbo state of popular sentiment on this aide of the Atlantio In the first place, not a tingle American born ia to be found among those unfortunate erea.ures who have gone to the Province* to labor on a railroad (rather than to take ser vice in the Crimea) not one! This ahowa that the Ttwin is entirely mistaken in its ?lew of 'he estimation in which the war is held by the American people. We do not know of a au gie native- born American out of Boston (whe-e toadying to England is a constitu tional propensity of the vicinage) who has ex pressed sympethy with the allies at acy time within the tasi six inonus, while hundreds of American newspapers have gieen in that time unmistakable evidence thataa between England and Russia in thi? eontest. their hearts beat in sympathy with the latter This idea that Atglo-Saioi* sentiment in America ia in uni son with England's cause in the war, was re paatei in the speeches delivered by British subjects at tbe late dinuer of the Society of St. Qecrg* in New York It is lounded on the faei that Britons have expressed raeh a preference in American newspapers It;^ems as though Engllshnen coming to the United (Mates hare a chrome propensity to Interfere iu the formation of American seati* meat before becoming citisens here There are twenty to one of the* an naturalised, who havw bMB here five years, Id proportion to the number of Irish and Germans unnaturalised. who have been in the United States long ?oough to brcome el ti sens?twenty to on*. *ot where, in proportion to their numbers in thii country, we bare one Irishman or Ger 'aan essaying to model publie sentiment, law, ' , to iheix own notions through the press of the United States, twenty Engiisnien are so engaged These aro statis ios, the truth and 'jice of which all will realise on a mntcert's reflection. All the large cities bare llioir re ip^-ctive quotas of unnaturalized English ro porters sub editors, gleaners, A3. In Boston, New York and Philadelphia perhaps half the manufacturers of presumed American senti ment are of this elasa. Men who, while villi fying the President of the United States onto count of the sympathy of native born Ameri csns with the Creoles of Cuba, are doing their tost to enooarage the violation of our neutral ity laws for England's benefit. 0* Breckinridge and the Spanish Mission ? A Washington correspondent writes to the New York Tribune that Mr Breckin. ridge was deterred from aooeptlng the mission to Madrid by a letter from Mr. Soule to him, explaining the difficulties he would have to onoonnter in Spain, the utter impossibility of his accomplishing anything there, Ac, Ac. Now, we have to say that there is not a single word of truth in this story. Mr Breckinridge declined that position, like a sensible man, first beosnse kid wife was in extreme delicate health, and he wculd have been forced to have left her at home to take care of his children, who are numerous and young; next because, if he left Kentucky and returned after an ab sence of years, it would require years of !a bv^rfor bim to obtain the praotioe in his pro. fashion he would have been thus compelled to abandon He is a young man of little proper ty and has very recently won his way to pro te?d.onal fame, so that he is beginning to make money, and is too rensible to give up his prts f eel for accumulating property It will be recolleo ed that aa Amerioan for eign ministers are paid, not one in tea can lay up any of their compensation fr >m the Qov erxment. Certainly no gentleman like Mr. Breckinridge can do so in any such position, as he has a large family to support, aed is a liberal liver but without being extravagant Wo conversed with him frequently on the sub ject, and know that he was governed by the reasons we suggest above; though we must do him the justice to say that had his services in ^pain been absolutely nocessary for the well being of his country, he would hare made any sacrifice of bis personal interests, aad ac ce^ed. ? he Southern Railroad Convention ?The representatives of half a doien Southern rail, roads, who are here on business connected wiih the interests of their several companies iKvolved ia the great mail letting that has just taken place, organised yeiterday and together visited the Postmaster General, with whom they had a formal interview, in which their in terests and those ef the Post Office Department are said to have been discussed We heat ?bat a ehange of schedule, to take place in May, was infotmaliy announced by Ue Post master General, and at once cheerfully acqui esced in by these gentlemen. Judging fiom the remarks of some of them to-day, upon the circumstances of this interview, it was the inauguration v of a much better understand ing between the railroad companies and the Post Office Department; the reprefentatives of the former having come to reilixe that the i'oftmaster General is only anxious to protect tie publio interest, as in duty bound, in all his .Traag^menta with them California Caveats ?We understand that claimants to lands in California are in the habit of fliing caveats at the General Land Office to bar the issuing cf patents to lands in Ltigdtion, bef ;re the ques.ions of title to them have been finally disposed of by tho United Su'rs Supreme Court Thij is useless labor and expense; became the General Land Office in no ease issue patents to such lands until after the Supreme Court has fioally adjudi cated upon them, and offlo.&l returns of tur veys under such adjudications have been made.

The territory of Kansas had been invaded by a regular organised army, armed to the teeth, who took possession of the ballot-boxe.', and made up a legislature to suit the purposes of the pro slavery party. Kansas was subdu ed. subjugated and conquered by armed men from Missouri, but her citisens were resolved nevtr to give up their fight for freedom and the independence of their soil from foreign control and interference Missouri would Be called upon to disavow all sympathy with the^e border ruffians; and if she refused, the South would ba called upon to discountenance her If the South refused, the solemn duty would devolve upon the North to take up the matter, so that the rights of her sons, who have settled in Kansas on the faith of solemn compacts, shall be vindicated and sustained. "He declared that the aooounts of the fieroe onrages and wild violences penetrated at the la?e election in Kansas, as published in the Northern papers, were t?ot exaggerated, and he concluded by saying than Kansas was now a conquered ooun'ry?conquered by foroe of v* *** citisens were resolved never to yield their rights, and he relied upon the North to aid them by demonstrations of public sentl ment and all other legal means, till they shall ba fully and triumphantly vindicated PERMOXAL. ....Hod A. 0 Dodge, Minister to Spain left this eity yesterday. for New York, to take passage for Europe.

The sparkling Sugar is not only innocent in itself, but in many in-1 stances eminently beneficial to dyspeptics und fib ers similarly afflicted, it being a combinailon, in a concentrated form, of articles in daily use in every family. With this preparation Soda Water can be made at home, in the parlor or at the dinner table, invtantaneously, without the lea?t inconvenience. To traveler* and persons residing in the country the Sparkling Suear will be invaiuaMe, as the | means of producing at an inconsiderable expend a most pleasant, as well as healthful summer bever age. No one undertaking a journey, either by land or sea, should be without it, as it is put up in a port able form, and not affected by the vinseitude of cli mate. Hotel and steamship proprietors will find the Sparkling Sugar preferable to, and cheaper than the Mineral Water now sold in bottles. It i* put up in half pound glass jars, and flavored with lemon, cm ger, sarsaparilla, vanilla, kc., to suit the fancy or taste of the purchaser. C GAUTIER will not resort to the usual method of pulling his discovery. It requires no such adven titious Hid. It carries with it its own reeotnmenria lion, and has only to be known te be propeily ap-1 preeiated. Families having once given it a trial will never be without the Sparkling Sugar. At present it is for aale only at his establishment, No. 959 Pa. avenue, where the citizens of Wash ington and Georgetown, and visiters to the Metrop olis generally, are invited to call and judge tor themselves by giving it a trial. may 1?eo6t .1OTICB.?The tripe advertised |:*or Mount Vernon and the White Huu-e (sii uiu the weather be stormy on Tuesday,) will be made ou the next day.
