The mails of the Bohemian reached this city from Port* land yeBterday morning, bringing our European flies of the 14th instant. nor Britannic Majesty's steam transport Himalaya, from Plymouth, Knglaad, the lflth, has arrived here. Tho Canada's news was received in this city diroct from Halifax? the first casr of the kind extant ? through tho agency of telegraph repeaters, Invented by George H. Hicks, Esq. , of Cleveland, Ohio. The wires were con nected through, and at ono writing the news was flashed from Halifax to this oity. Florence Nightingale, in a letter which has found it8 way Into print, appears to entertain little hope of her own recovory. The woather continued stormy around tho English coast and numerous disasters wore reported. Mr. Baxter, Member of Parliament, in addressing his constituents, has strongly denounced tho Galway Steam ship coutract. lie said Jthat the company was losing its Irish element, and that tho restoration of the subsidy would be discreditable to Ireland. The Loudon 0 bterrtr states that tho British army esti mates will be sensibly reduced. A despatch from Berne or the 17th Instant says there has been a Aresh violation of the Swiss territory by the French uear Geneva. Hie steamship City of Baltimore, rrom New York, arrived at Liverpool on the ISth inst. The Canada reports having passed the steamships Afri ca and Kuropa. I f THE AMERICAN REBELLION. The Rebel Sympathizers tn England? Sir James Ferguson Says He was Not a Spy in America? He Pnt? on the British Ucstleman*- Opinions on the Cotton Crisis. The Loudon ATeiot lias an editorial generally re buking Southern sympatbisls in England, and especially denouncing the writer of a strong pro Soutborn letter in the Tima. 8ir James Fergusson, in a letter to tho Ayr Observer, says that the office he holds constrains him to ceniradict the assertion that he had acted as a Bpy in America. He adlrms explicitly that in the whole course of his tour he meddled in no w my In the affairs of the Northern or Southern States. He travelled solely to inform himself of the momentous questions st issue, and it was not bis fSult if a New York journalist was in capable of understanding that a gentleman could enjoy tho confidence of the military commanders on both sidoe without abusing that of either. The libel in ques tion was the only exception to the uniform courtesy be experienced, whether in tho Cnitedor Confederate^tates. The London timrs attributes the inactivity in thede rcand for cotton in India to lingering hesitation as to th? American supply, but says that other circumstances have also opcratod forcibly to such a result. The real caute oj tke present stagnation is not scarcity of cotton, tut the absence of a demand for calico, the market* of the wertd betng glutted viilfc Lancashire goods. Manufacturers in curtailing oporationi are doing what they most have done sooner or later, irrespective of the stoppage of the Amert can supply. British Opinion or the I'nion Canse. [From the LoDdon Times, Nov. 14. J The "head and front of our offending" was that we formed an esujuale which has been verified by facts That estimate was disagreeable to the Unionists, became it seemed U> undervalue the ,power of their arms and place a legitimate government on the foot ins with a'band of rebels. But the baud of rebels is actually on a routine with the legitimate government. The only way or con futing us, and putting us is tho wrong, would have been by upsetting our conclusions. If the buttle of Bull run had boen a victory instead of.a defeat; if it had been fol lowed by tho triumphant advance of the federal army if General McClellan's headquarters were now at Richmond and General Fremont's at New Orleans; if the entire South had been subdued, and every seceding State brought back to its allegiance? then, no doubt we should stand convicted of error, and the I'nionists might fairly reproach us with thinking so poorly of their government and so highly of tho rebels. Rut the very contrary of all this is what has happened, and our justi fication, therefore, Is complete. As to the merits or the respective causes, we made no great point of. comparing them. We could not overlook the fact that the Northern ers wero anything but earnest in the reported crusade uguinst slavery, and as little could we deny thai the Southerners had many reasons for wishing to livo sepa rately. The one groat argument, however, with ns has ti tii not the injustice , but thu impossibility of the object proposed by tho North. We do not wonder at their mut ing a tight fur the Union, or at their indignation against those who destroyed it, b>.t every mail shows that the Union is net likely u> bo restored agaiu, nud thai the views we formed, not in enmity, but on a sober estimate of probabilities, have received the verification which onlv experience could briug. The Cotton (Question. STOPPAGE Of SEVENTEEN HCNIUtCD LOOMS IN BLACK Bt'RN. fFrom tho Manchester Guardian, Nov. 14.] The weavers at Mr. R. R. Jackson's mill, Blackburn turned out yesterday st noon. The reason assigned for thu step was bad material. Mr. Jackson'-' mill is one of tho largest.in the town, and employ, sotuo 2,000 work people, who have been on lull time. fFrom the London .Vows, Nov. 14. | Ii t eems almost incredible that any cotton spinner* iu Laqoaahire can be meditating a strike against the reduc tion of wages rendered n'ca-sary by tho state and pros pects of our cotton supply. It is too true that in the neighborhood of Bory some ot the operatives have ac tually struck against the reduction of 10 per cent pro posed by the masters; and at Preston there is a threat of turning out against a reduction of 1% percent. Such a course, adopted under the clrciinistanoes of the time, soems to show that even yet, after the great advance tho Lancashire operatives have made in knowledge and in insight into their own interests, there Is still much mis understanding among them of the source of wages, and the causes of tho rue and fall of the payment of labor. The Bory men on strike are reported to have declared that tliey will consent to a reduction equal to the ad vance made in 1S59? that is, live per cont; but they reduction ?we. The Preston men refuse all .,rfl}or*th?t^y.Kup^,w tbeir wages come from? They are, for th? most part, newspaptr rcAdcr* they miiHt ?s ar?fUl mV!,1 V'Urn,'ls ?k th"ir m,mrv Employ known hlSSe lium ?r?

Tho Manchester Examiner savs that seventy time flrma in the district of thl l.n r J have failed since 1st of Junuary, There failures at Man>JusUr,a, id the same number at fito u, and no Us, thin thirty at BuXum amt CU&eroe. When manufacturers or .mail capita!^ ?? carious standing fail in Bumbers in this way the I floe and sater capitalist. are under a great strain.7 They stand losses ror a longer time than weaker firms >? ! they have to stand losses. Not only does their bustaes* yield thsm no profit, but they have to pay wngse out of their capital. Of course this can lie onlv a temporary state of affairs. It is a question ol time. Unless trade improves the day must come when th>< concern must stop, either by the employer's failure or by his retirln? from business before his property is all gone. It is very clear that it depends partly on tiie operatives how long this payment of wages may go on it all, There is nothing in the state ot affairs, American or English, whloh can excuse any rashness in nj m. v .? n vee.ied with the cotton manufacture.

Pronmlgatlom. o t the Allied Treaty? Tlie C nlted Htatct IlfKtd to Join the Euro pean Powers. The French ships forming tho Mcxican expedition worn expend to assemble at Havana between thu l&th aud 20th or Docember. The I<oudon Gazette publishes tho treaty in regard to (bo eoni)>lnod expedition ot England, Franco and Spain. It is signed by I/ird |Johu| Russell and Siguor Isturlti, and M. llahault. It has Ave artielM. The fourth article *a ys, that after the signatures to tho treaty were made, a oopy of it was communicated to the government of tho United States, and thai the Ministers of the contracting Powers at Washington are authorised to conclude itsoparateiy or collectively with President Lin coln. As delay, however, would jeoparadlse the success of tho expedition, the Commissioners oporatloua are not to be deferred for obtaining the accession of the United Status to the treaty after the forces have assembled in the ueighborhood of Vera Crux. WBV RNflLANt) SUPPORTS SPAIN IN HKB DE8KH<8. [From the Manchester Guardian, Nov. 14. J In the celebrated speech in which Mr. Caunon boasted that he "called the New World into existence to roaress the bttlaucc of the Old," he had drawn a comparison bo twecn the S|*in of tluit day oud the S{?iu whose growing dominion was once thought to threaten the independence Of Europe. The ex(iedilion of the Duke d'Angonleme w as mukmg its victorious murch, and Home alarmists expressed a fear that the Peninsula would pass completely under the lulluei.ee of France. Tho BritifU Minister argued that such au event 110 longer afforded the same cause of apprehension tbnt it had doue of old. "Is tho Spain of the present day," he n.<ked, "tho Spain whose puisxancc was oxpe< tud to shake Kuglaud from her sphere* No, sir; it wa? quite another Spam; it was the Spain within whose dominions the win nevor sets; it was Spain with the Indies that excited Ibe jealousies und alarmed the imagination of our ancestors." Aud resolving that if France had Spain, it should not be "Spain with the Indies," ho acknowledired the indepen dence ot the revolted colonics in South America. To chockmato any aggressive steps on the part of France, by making her new acquisition comparatively worthless, was then the policy of the English Cabinet. Hut since that time the face of Europe has undergone a remarkable change, and a corresponds# alteration has incurred in tho views taken of the relative streugth ef different Powers. The royal speech then alludes to those regions the libe ration of which from Spanish rule was regarded with so much exultation by Canning. Aftor a briof reference to the adjustment of some trifling dispute with Venezuela, the Queen turns to.that distracted republic which is ahoui to become tho scene of a European intervention, and ap parently alludes, with uo very good reason , to lbs dif ferences of opinion which at first arose between the l'owers concerned. Tho sentence seems to bovo some what suffered in translation; but we gather from it tliat the Spanish government had decided on a single handed interference with Mexico, when France Bnd England an nounced their desiro to take part in the proceeding*, ana dissented in some particulars from the printed course. Subsequent negotiations removed the difficulty, and her Majesty states that the expedition to be carried out will "realize the idea the execution of which has been tbo constant object of the efl'orts of her government." In this account we seem to doted somo of thejealousy which w;us imputed to O'Donnell in regard to the co ojmj ratlon of England and France, aud which the Minister surely ueed not have introduced into his Sovereign's speech. St. Domingo once more belongs to Spain. Tn reading these words it is impossible to forget that but for the in 1 testine discord now wustiug a powerful neighbor, the acquisition would probably have been found less easy, I and that even as matters stand it has not been allowed to past without a protest, opening the door to further pro ceedings, if ever the opportunity arrives. Nor ua? we avoid adding that, if Spain desirus to hold it with the ap probation of Europe, she must take care that Slavery is uot allowed to re-establish itself in the territory thus re gained. Fraacc, Tha monthly returns ot (be Bank of France show that the dccreaae in cash ia nineteen and a half millions of francs, and the increase in bills discounted twenty-seven millions. The change in the imperial system of finance, as shadowed forth in the Emperor's letter and 1(. Fould'a programme, received per Bohemian, is uot regarded with much importance in England. The London Titus' city articlo says:? It is not easy to see how the transfer from the Emporor to the people of the task of raising money will calm unea siness and remove all pretext for hostile measures, when it is cortain that the Emperor cau resume his prerogative at any moment he may think Qt. The London Newt says:? Will the Emperor still be answerable for an abundance of employment wheu he can no longer create bouudless expenditure by a stroke of his pen? In Paris the financial change imparted much firmness I to the bourse, snd the rentes advanced live eighths per centfn the 15th inst , closing at Q9T. tie- Tha advaace was fully mainta ied. I There were ramora of impending changes among tha htgh functiqnaries in administration, and that tha powers of the several Ministers would ba modified and tha Minis try of State reorganised. A Paris letter says that M. Fould'a conditions on taking the office of Minister of Finance wore as followi:? First. The budget to bo voted for in detail, sou to give the Legislature some control over the expenditures. Secondly. The renunciation of tha power to decree sup plementary credits without the consent of the Council of Ministers Thirdly. The conversion of tha "trcuteanary" obliga tions. Fourthly. The conversion of the entire public debt into threo per cents. Fifthly. The consolidation of tha Boating debt. Sixthly. The reduction of the army. Seventhly. The evacuation of Rome. Eighthly. That on taking office he should be the inter mediary of all communications between ministers and tha Km per or. A despatch from Paris of the 16th of November, says;? The Bourse closed heavy to-day at f#f. 4&c. for the rentes Italy. A levy of eighty thousand men ia ordered; hut It wu i thought that not more than fifty thonsand would ba ob tained, and that another fifty thousand would he levied in February. The effective army will then consist of two hundred and oighty thousand men. General j Carbonnolli bad gone to Caprorato present Garibaldi with an address from the Neapolitans, pray ing bim not to leave Italy. General Cialdini bad tendered his resignation. A despatch from Naples of tho 17th inst. says:? Chia* vone is being vigorously pursued by the Italian troops, lie is endeavoring unsuccessfully to regain tha Papal States. Bergoe, with"200 brigands, sacked two small towns. There was a rumor that tha Papal government was pre paring an expodition against Cmbria. Sigcor Ratazzi will rclinq>tisb tho Presidency of tho Chamber of lieputics. Cbiavone, tho Brigand Chief, was again giving trouble. Two ilepatclics are said to have been discovered, show" ing a collusion between bim and the Pontifical authorities. Portugal. Tlie ? ouncil of State had proclaimed the Duke of Oporto King of Portugal. The ministry is unchanged. Tran quillity prevailed. Tlie Infanta Iton August o continued dangerously 111. The new King of Portugal baa arrived at Lisbon, and been well received. The Duke or HaMauba was seriously ill at Lisbon on tho ISth inst. Kas?U> Navigation was closed at St. Petersburg. The last ships of the season were leaving Cronstadt. * Fifteen thousand Russian troops had attacked ten thou sand mountaineers in Clrcaaaia. After fighting six hours the Russians wera put to flight, with very heavy losses, including a general or division killed. Six thousand Rus sians woro reportod killed and wounded. A despatch from Warsaw of the 16th instant says The military are being continually insulted, and the mar tial law has been set at defiance by the people. The Archbishop of Warsaw has been arrested because the churches are continually closed, and for having writ ten a disrespectful letter to General Luders. Graven. A conspiracy to assassinate tho King and his immediate followers, during a fete, bad failed. Such information was conveyed to the King as to enable him to avoid the ma chmattona of tha assassins.

The correspondence by tbe overland mall adds little of moment to thenowa already received. - The Calcutta Englishman severely censures the Man Chester manufacturers for doing nothing either to further the intended growth of cotton In India, or to take off tha stocks on hand in up country depots.

Amid the tramp of armies, the sound of fratricidal strife aud lamentation for tl>o fallori . we still behold the merciful arm of the Kulor of Ibe Universe mad* bare for our protection. Though a suicidal war, stimulated by leaders of fartiou and waged with all tlio power of a grunt and misguided people, weighs like the band of death upon the national euergiusand throws its dark shadow over the land ; though this nation, no receutly prospering under heaven's bright est smile and advancing with gigantic step* toward greatness and power, has been arrested in Us progress and m suffering the doep humiliation aud blighting inllnenco of a murderous civil war, yet we bare inHnite causa for thanksgiving and praise to Almighty God. Disease has been stayed from the fireside and from ? the camp ; internal order has prevailed - plenty has abounded ; liberty of conscience remains unabridged ; ordinary puwuitshave been uninterrupted; our natioual rights are respected; partisan animosities arc fast burn ing out, and the spirit of fraternal affection has been beautifully manifest throughout a wide extent of our commou country. Though composed of the represents tive? of many nations, a general calamity has rovealed our Strang* homogeneity, has served to obliterate preju dices, hi* moved all alike by the same patriotic emotion. All alike have responded to tho call to save our imperilled institutions. The marvellous energy which the crisis calls forth proves our national spirit to be unabated, our vigor unwanted, and gives promise, under the blessings of God, ot' a higher position in all that constitutes true na tional greatness. Though ovils follow the train of armies, yet for these wa have a great compensation in tho fart that the exposures and expenditures incident to war will necosearily counteract the tendency of the age to cllcmi uacy and luxury. loth is hour of affliction, though we may not presume to lift the veil which mercifully hides the future, yet we tielieve that, in the wood rose plan of God, if wo but hum bly bow before Him and acknowledge our national sins, Infinite Wisdom will work out from this great tribulation a marked aud permanent good ; that the startling evi dence of the mutability of human affairs taught us in the lessons of the year will tend to subdue our hearts, and that this noble Onion, tlio work of men inspired by the loftiest patriotism, the wonder of the world and tbe glory of this nation, will lio preserved. For the blessings seen by us, and for those which in the providence of God are vouohsafod unto us, but which mortal eye caanot dis cern, we should make our public acknowledgments: Therefore, 1, Kdwinf). Morgan .governor of the 3tate of New York, do appoint Thursday, the tweuty-elghth day of November next, as a day of praise, thanksgiving and prayer to Almighty God - and 1 do earnestly reoom

mond that the poople of this Stato do, on that day, ab stain from their usual oocupatious, aud assembling in their respective places of warship, unito in liumblo ex pressions of gratitude to Him from whom wo derive all blessings, and to whom wa look for a restoration of peace to our beloved country. In witness whereot, I have horeuoto set my hand and affixed tho privy s<*l of tbe State, at the city of Albany , thin rirst day of October, in the year of oiir Lord oue thousand night hundred tad sixty one. By tho Governor. EDWIN D. MORGAN. Lockwood I,. Dorr, Private Secretary. Br MAYOK fbkna.npo woon. Tho Governor of this Stato having, in accordance with a time honored custom, appoint^ Thursday, the '28th ?lay of November inst., as a day of public thanksgiving, I, Fernando Wood, Mayor of the city of New York, do here by recommend all good citleeu* to unite on the day thus set apart iu ascriptions of praise to the Source of all Good , for His manifold mcrcios and blessings. Amidst the evils which tho folly and wickedness of man have produced, the unchanging goodness of t ha Creator may wall awake our devout wonder.
