Our London Correspondence. Ixwdon, March 28, I860. The London Timet and Governor Starcy?The British Le tjal.vm at Washington?Sir Gort Owelty as a Successor to Mr. Grampian?Mr. Dallas' Reception in London?1U ntst of Mr. Bates?The Pacific Steamship?London The atricals, etc., iCc. The limes newspaper has been banging away this last week at Gov. Marcy and his late despatches on the enlistment question. Toe only new point raised is whether the United States government has a right to prevent its citizens from goiog out of the country aal enlisting when they please. A man has the right with us, beyond doubt, to expatriate himself and to enter a foreign service, renouncing, of course, the protection and laws of his own country. Will this view tend towards solrlcg the dispute on this delicate point ? The Times also endeavors to throw ridlcnle on Gov. Maroy, for quoting so many old European authorities, such as Gro tius, I'uffendorf and Vattel on international law, and itciares that while Lord Clarendon relies on common sense, the stater'man of the New World entrenches himself behind authority and tradition. It is a sly poke, but Gov. Maroy don't mind a hit, for he is always able to return it. All the fuss seems to centre in the stay of Mr. Crampton at Washington. It were wiser, metlunks, tor Lord Palmerston to recall him, anl give him a better berth in Europe, whilst he sent another Minister to Washiogton. His lordship could hardly se lect a better man for the place than Sir W. Gore Onseley, many years agn British Secretary of Legation at Wash ington, where he married the accomplished Miss Van Ness, daughter of our former Minister at Madrid, and sister of the amiable Mr. , of New York. Sir W. Gore Ouse ley has seen much diplomatic service, and is a man of good sense, conciliating manners, and strong Amerloan sympathies. He appreciates all the neeesaiy of a good | understanding between the two countries, and would do more than any other envoy that Lord Palmerston could send to adjust present dlfHiultiea and prevent new ones from springing up. He is just the man that would suit Governor Maroy ;fcr, like him, he is plain, practioal and free from affectation or prejudice. The English world haidly Know what to make of all the talk about war at Washington and else where, and are a little startled at the vote of three millions for oast de fsnoes. If they understood the tricks of politicians at well as ether things, they would know that when the election of a President is coming on money is want- j ed to distribute to different parts ot the country, where it is impossible to discover whether it has been i spent by eoast surveyors or electioneering agents. How ever, it is better to dliouss a war with England, which is next to impossible, than to agitate that miserable " nig ' ger" question, which our fanatics have run into the grtued, and whlen will break down every politician that nt. ?? si- 4 Oar ww Minister, Mr. Dallas^ has been receivgt with great cordiality in London by the English government and by his own oountrymen. Lord Palmeraton boohed him for dinner almost the day he arrived, and began to lavish on him all those fine phrases and sift blan dishments that make his lordship so irresistible to one sex, and so snperlor over tse other. Mr. Dal las, however, is not only a sagacious diplomatist, but an accomplished man of tha world, and knows how to dis'lngutsn between courtesy and flattery, acknowledging the one and oiscialmlag the other. I think Mr. Dallas win soon pat things to rights between th* two nation*, tor be is one cf those independent and fearless men who dares to say or do what his judgment aoproves or ois con ference commands I am sure he would rather resign his poet than obey instruotteus that ware opposite t > hit opinions or unfavorab'e to the int* rests of hi* country la hia point of view. You rememeer his easting vote against '.he tariff, when he sacrificed his personal interests to what he thought was the good of the whole country. Amongst the festivities that welcomed Mr. Dallas te L-?n ddn, none probaoly was more acceptable than the din ner tend*red to him by onr estimable Consul, General Campbell, where many of his countrymen were assem bled to greet him. It is needless to say that every fett at General Campbell's most be a pteaaant one, for his win ning honiunnmic and racy anecdotes attract and enliven all who partake ot hi- hoeral hospitality, and those who know him are aware that waie his lnoome a million he weald spend it for the gratification and enjoyment of hia friends and oountrymen. It is rum wed that Mr. George Feabody. so well known ror his munificent entertainments, intends getting np a grand banquet to Mr. Dallas, whtsh will, no aoubr, be a h.Uliant affair, for Mr. Feabody nover spares the pounds nor spoils a dinner. I am soiry to relate, aaiid lees pleasing items of news, that onr distinguished countryman, Mr. Joahua Bates, has la'ely undergone a severe illness, that was thought at one moment must terminate fatally. Ho is not considered out of danger yet, but hopes are entertained of his final res ovary. Mr. Bates has for so many years held the fore most rank amongst Americans In England, Which hie talents, character, wealth and gener >us disposition nave alike secure! to him, that his demise would make a void not easy to fill again, aadnot more affecting to his friends than a loss to his country abroad, which cannot but gain in the consideration of fittefcners whan thay meet one of her citizens so entitled in every manner respect as Mr. Bates. Let ua hope that he will be spared yet many years, to gladden his home aad add to his own reputation, as well as to the fame of tit native land. I rhonld not omit to no toe a fact that will he received in the United States wtlh extreme satis taction, and which reflects the highest credit on ad parties concerned. Tne British government has despatched two steam vessels in search of the Paeifie, on the supposition, still ener taines, that she may be drifting, with broken machinery, about the Atlantie. the details connected wjth this pieanlag event are somewhat curious, aid I shall relate their, se likely tnay are not known to any one else. To Mr. T. B. Oakfaid, partner of T. R. Croskey, of the veil known shipping hoot# of Croskey & Ob., is dae the lniiiatlun of ibis noble act. In spi a of all tha gloomy aad discouraging conviction* entertained of me loss of the steamer Pacific, Mr. Oakturd still rented in the pleusib e theory that she might only disabled, and floating above at themerey of wind* aad wave*. Index una lamriprtu be went alone to the Ad mhsshf or Wtk Department, and sywtM^t lh? chief Lort or Minister, te the hope stialnmog Mm % ajed oat a vessel for enccor. He was oonttoousty received; bat old Admiral Biakely said it was useless, as the Pacific had, no doubt, struck an iceberg and gone down. This would nave been the end of the matter, bat Co). Dudley Maun, wbo is In ixmdr n hearing of Mr. Otk'ord's humane a - tempt, suggested to him a < liferent modi of proceeding. Be lntrodueed Mr. Oaklbrd to our new Minister, Mr. Dallas, and thay jointly urged him to lay the matter be fore the Admiralty. Mr. Dallas, with bis characteristic promptitude, never stopped to consider tf he was reciti in curia or not, but immediately managed to bring the application of Mr. Oak ford under the notice ot Isird Falmerston. tha head of the government. No man knows better when and how to perform ^ graceful action than the Priire Minis'er of England. He no sooner reoetvsd Mr. Dallas' intimation than he seat instant or ders to the slsepy old admirals ot the Nav? Department to send out two steamers in search of tha Pacifio, wnich was done In the course of a lew hours at farthest. It anything could acd to the praise which Mr. Oakford's ?xertions in this affair deserve, it is that not only haa he no interest ot any kind in the rescue ot the Pacific, nut that his house?Urosaey k Go?are tae agents of a rive! line of steamers. Mr. xltr ad antra. Parliament has adjourned for the Easter holidays, aad there is a c< mplete dearth of political news. I send you, therefore, a baton of gossip to make arosnls. In the theatrical line the only fbature worth notice Is the certainty of the forthcoming resurrection of Mr. L. I.umley, laiely director of Her Msjeety's Opera House, and who was ruined some four years ago by tae reoailion of Grisl end Mario, who went over to Corent Garden thea tre, which was converted into an opera house for the occasion. Mr Gye put himself at the head ot the lyric rebellion, and, sapper ted by the Qaeea, who disliked Lumley for some petty reason or other, the new opera Irinmpbtd and the old bouse was forced to shut up. Lutntey lost immense sams aad had to retire like Marios, to moan oser his rein. The boning uown of Covent Garden has in a single night crusned tjye. cheated the Queen ont of her spi'e, and restored Ijaralev to manage rial function*. Everybody rejoiese, *)r I.umley is an amiable and reepeerable man and the best proof or tha sympathy felt for him is lh?t Lord Ward and other noble men subscribed, in two days, fifty thousand p winds, (S'lMklKO ) towards enabling him to engage artists and set to wrrk again.

Addresses of e >n grata ta ion pour into ihs Tulierlee, not only from evsry department and erery chief town, but from every in.tl tution of France In fact, there is no record of atmller unanimity If it 1* true that nothing does eo eacc->d a* Huccee> ?or rather that the weakneae of mankind muet b" eontent to bear this Ubel ?or its truth', eake?etill. for the honor of human nature, it le but just to etate tna there are circumstances in the preaent instance which place Napoleon's extraordinary eueoesa far beyond the catego y of the most ep'endld triumphs. The hand o dei-tiny is so pslpably laid on his head, that farther to n?l*t the influence ol his success would be like rediteuc* to the will t f the Supreme Disposer. It was destiny, no Nspoleon 'a arm, that overthrew the dynasty that prece Urn It waaeestiny ttat earriad him into Louis Phi lippe's seat. It was desilny, too, tha\ by hardship, poverty, misfortune, exile and heavy years of Inaaroera uon within piiaoa walla, educated him to wield the boundless euihority she placed in his hands. People take the present occasion to review piece cue al the singular career of their ruler. The most inwe era e impugners of his authority, as they do so, begin to ru ? their brows in bewilderment. ?'Verily a God la beside him, end he hath done ail things well," is e seutlmrnt that of late may frequently be heard to fall from llpa a> beit unused to much soft speaking. I have been siruok with such repeated Instances of taia In quarters where it might be so little expecied, that I was justified in be lievug ihatthe birth of an heir, contrary to what was expecec, Is almost universally canatcered a brilliant point in the brilliant aareer of the Emperor; and for this reason, that it seems a crowning act of tna: same destiny , which las M'herto guided his foocteeps. Much of the popular consideration is, h iwsver, due t < the excellent taste, the epigrammatic terseness of his rep ies to the sereraladdresses that have been presenteo to him.

The Empress is to-day in snob a state of. convalescence that no further bulletin! are to be issued on her account. Ihe tacts wbich, from private souroes, I was able to ecmmunicate respecting her Majesty's accouchement, were at first jealously reserved from the public; now, however, that she has rallied in a manner so extraordi nary, and gives such.speedy promise of returning health, they are permitted to ooae out by little and little. The ronton of artificial means being had recourse to for the extraction ot the ohlld, was the entire cessation of all ?Dcvement on Its part within tne last four lours or thq birth. At first the circumstance caused little or no dls< * quietude to any of the medloal attendants, but about two o'clock in the morning Baren Dubois became so anx Ioum that, drawing the Emperor aside, he informea him of the fears he entertained lest a child still-born should be the retult, and In any case the necessity there was of ad opting more stringent means. The Emperor was greatly shocked, but "save the Empress, cone what wl.t," was bin Instantaneous reply. Providentially Du bois's fears proved groundless. The operation was skil (Ully performed, though not without aggravating the sufferings of the Illustrious patient, and all has gone on d men title. The Empress's rally has astonished every one, anu all are beginning to hope that, si far from the constitution having received an irreparable shock, her Majesty'* pievlously well known delicacy of physique may entirely dwhopear, and that she may lire to bless the Emperor wlsn a tumorous progeny of sons and daughters. fb* chamber appropriated for the "Infant of Prance" is fitted up with all tbat the most consummate art and lavish expense can supply.

The juntos and coalitions, and manoeuvres of all description*, between the deputies to the Cortee continue, but on a small scale and without results. Many, who a short time since called themselves progrtsitta* puros are now ready to coalesce with Rios, Rosas, Concha, Ceello and others?that is to say, with the mederaiot followers ot O'Donnell. What stupidity, to refuse u they have refused to co-operate with the demoorats and go beggiag over to the camp of the modcradotl The great principle, the fundamental idea of all these little combi nations, Is tbis: "You, sir, have some influence; I have a little myself; that third individual also enjoys a little; we all need money; let us unite; no matter what our ideu may be?that is of no consequence if we are agreed on one point; that is, to enjoy, exercise power, govern and roll in handsome carriages and bo surrounded by flat terers. Ooce united," acd these farcical gantleraen, "we shall be so many great springs In politioa, and een menu acturs public opinion to suit ourselves, and per haps we can get ourselves applauded as patriots and sa viors of the country." Oht supreme justice of the people! when will you des cend upon us for the eternal puniihment of so many rogues and robbers? I Oh! how tired it this people of progreiittas, moderadot, I absolutists and all other parties In whose names it has been robbed for flfty years! , Here is what one ot the newspapers says about the new third party; It is exact to the letter;? The "liberal union" consists of a couple of dozen of men who brloiged to the moderado and progrr*i*tci par ties. Their influence in tbe country Is of such a nature M at the j- bam nobody to support them. The press com bats them because It beliaves rightly that one party m? re in Spain would be a public calamity. Even one of the moderado journals confessed the other day that all the doctrines of the old political parties were worn threadbare and no longer encountered any support from the people; and that the only things which in out time could aspire to to the honors ot novelty, and thus, pet haps to the aaxnt of the people, were either the im pel ial system of Fraeoe or the demoeraev- As I have no idea that Imperial absolutism can be imposed upon this country at any rate,-Oven the mrdtrado* themselves will soon have no other resource than to proclaim the democracy. It is well that we should understand thoroughly tho true situation of Europe. All Is quiet In appearance; but it is nevertheless true tbat Louis Napoleon and all the imperial crowns cf tbe Conferenee at Paris are not strong enough to plant that system in Spain at this tin e. Meantime, an unfortunate oecarrenee has disturbed lbs harmony of the democratic party. Two of its prin cipal men- Riven , a deputy to the Cortee, and Csmara, editor o( the Sovereignty?have quarrelled and fought a duel In whicn bo h were wounded. Twe other duels bsvH taken place, growing out of the name affair, but it will probably end i-ere.

The great precession of the burial of Jesus also passed eff without s m casualty. The question of finance is the great question of the day.

Tbe Pepal g rerumsnt has never been a esngu'ne one, and will n t easily take a s'ep forward when it le possible that it may have to tube It bask ward bereatter. The government of Issue Nap .leon la accept ed ia an ucavoldabie necessity, but it hex not yet become popular hero is R> me, any mere than at the Protestant le gitimist court of Berlin. It is n> ceasary to have a man like Napoleon ia Kurope, to maintain the status quo not In politics bat in society; to break the fall ot' all political and religions inH'itntiona of the Old World, for a time at least; and thus even tho-e whe lock with jealousy and apprehension to the growiug power of France, are glad to eee ha' power wlelced by such a n an. The Holy Father woe quite willirg to go to Paris, and to oblige the Km per or Napoleon, out the Sacred College have dissuaded him from taking such a step, and I have it now from a source not to be mistaken, that the Tope will not quit Rome the ensuing summer. His locum tenens, tbe Can. leal, will leave ht re in the month of June?not sooner: The amnesty which the Emperor is about to grant to all political oondamnes is Indispensable to the calming of all political animosities In Franoe; but there are those who look wl th fear and trembling to the return of to many socialist reouolicana, who no doubt will all make Paiia thtlr future headquar'ers, and who it will not ba an easy task to wa'ch ana to contine to innocent passive Dees. If Napoleon succeeds in getting the great Generals back who are now in Belgium, ha will be armed with a new prestige, and the ancient republican parties will be left withont leaders. As 1 have eo often written you, peace will undoubtedly be concluded; hut the regulation of the frontier* of Russia in Bessarabia is not eo easy a task as was at first ! imagined, and may yet require a survey by a joint com mission of officers. It is quits certain that the maps wiiloh have been used for regu a ting the ideal frontiers is false, and that there is no map in existence that might serve as a proper guide. We are here is the midst of the ceremonies of the Holy W<ek. and Rome is crowded with stranger*. The number of Americans this jear far exceeds that of the English, and they are| spending their time here very sociably amorg themselves. At all the American evening parties ?and they have been so numerous that scarcely a night pasted without some American fete?1 have seen bnt one English person, and that was a woman, the two nations keeping themselves as distinct from one another as if they had neither language nor a drop of blood in com mon. On the other hand, 1 do not knew a single Ameri can who is a member or the English Club here, whieh is an inetltution entirely maintainea by British exclasive aess, for the sole benefit of her Majesty's aucject*. Only the English aad American arMsta associate with each other, and neWa very fine club fbr that purpom. Arm and sciences have forever brought men oC different na tions together, beeause genius is, from its very nature universal. A certain degree, if not of ignorance, at leas of prejudice, is always necessary to bring out national distinctions, and with it social or national intolerance. Mr. Miilard Fillmore has returned from Maples, and is now again sojourning among us. tie is quite an object of veneration among the Americans here, and a universal favorite. Our Minister here, the Hon. Lewis Caes, Jr., has a large party for him on Monday next, to which all the Ame-icana and the dignitaries of the Church of Rome are invited. The news that Mr. Fillmore has been nomi nated bv i he Know Nothing Counoil has reached here troai London by telegraph, and seems tr have given gene ral satisfaction. There are those who find plenty of other things to respect in Mr. Fulmore than his real or imputed Know Nothiugum. They know that he knows something, and chat he made a m<.st excellent President. Uis poei tion on the elavery question is veiy much liked, being a menu trrmine between he ignorant abolitionists of the North and the impetuous and inexperienced firs-eaters of ihe South, neither one or the other ot which may be classified wi h the national men of the oountry. Even among the democrats here, there is but one opinion, namely, that anything is better than the continuation of ?be present rule of Pierce and Forney; and that, unless some good rational democrat, (not a man pledged all round to political loafers.) is nominated, Millard Fillmore Is sure to be our next President. Yesierday a party of Americans?(I do not mean to use 'be word as a party distinction?it will be a sad spectaele when any portion ot Americans will have ceased to think and leel and act as Americans)?communicated to Mr. Fidmorethe fact ot his nomination; but he remained as calm as a summer's morning, and seemed to be quite indifferent aa to the honor intended to be ahoweir ed upon him. He leave* here on Tuesday next for Florence, Ml An and Venice, and will visit Vienna, Mu nich, Stuttgart and Strasbourg on his way home. The north of Europe he visited last summer, and there is probaby now no man living In the Ui itsa States so well posted up in our foreign affsirs and tnoroughly acquaint ed with the position of the different States ot Europe as Mr. Fillmore, and none who ha* more juegment to make the proper use of his knowledge. While Mr. Fi lmure. on his way from Marseilles to Nice, was passing through Cannes, memorable, as you well know, in ancient times by the battle which Julius Crrsar won over the Gams, bnt celebrated in latter days ae a most delightful residence tor Eng lahmen in search of crunity life, retirement and health, be made a short visit to Lord Brougnam. who had shown him some atte tion in Lcndon, and was not a little astonished when, uu leaving the place, he found his Ixtrdship (who is now in a very advanced age) waiting for him near the earrisge with a splendid copy of a new edition of his Lives of Emi nent Men of the reign of George III, Hit Lordship had oome down nearly two miles from his beautiful patece, on foot, to wait on our venerable ex-l'reaident to present him with this testimonial of his high regard. Ot the special favor shown Mr. Fillmore by the Pope, I have spoken In a previous letter, wnere 1 stated that his Holi ness bestowed rn him more than princely honor when he invited Mr. Fillmore to take a seat by bis side. The King ot Naples had an. extra train in readiness to convey Mr. Fillmore to the roya' residenoe; and wherever else Mr. Fillmore has set foot ha was received, not only with the honors dne to the exalted s ation he once occupier), but with that leepaet tor the Innate dignity of the aian which no <fiicfal position, however high, can ensure unless coupled with personal dignity ana evidence of a hign in dividual character. We have gone through the five weeks of Lent, and are sow ui the middle or la* Holy Week; bat it etn oerteln'y not be sale of ns that, as good Protestants, we have paid any parti enter regard to Catholic customs. We nave bad Metal reunions every night, ana what is more, we have had music aad a dance almost every evening. The only i remonstrance that was made to that proceeding ay the fecclesiastical) police was in regard to the instaumeats 1 selected, which was coupled with a polite request that the tempered piano might lake the place of tiieshrieking fiddle, as a st.mulaat for the fantastic toe. Ypa may well Imagine that aU orderly persona received the hint, given with great modesty, as a positive commandment to keep? lent pi*no, piano. Among other amusements during the Holy Week we also hers a new perfoimance of private theatricals for the Americans, got np as the first was, entirely,by American artists, with a vast deal of spirit and humor. Consider ing that ail public theatres are closed during this week, ss indeed, through I<ent, and that Rortanow bears the official chsraoter of moarnlng, the- Indulgence or the government in our Amerioan sports deserves oertainly a laudatory comment.
