How long would be be I tnperor if ho attempt ml an Invasion of England? (Hear, hear.) Not very long. Ho did not believe that the Euiperor had nny ill feeling towards this country; but if he wished to In vade England the thing could not be carried out. (Cries of "Never!" anil cheers.) We had 102,000 militia men and 170,000 volunteers; and the existence of the latter force ought to enable the government to do with a less army than tbey had. (Orietrf "America," and eheers.) The Volunteers were now toasted at all aris tocratic dinners. Their patriotism waa so much appre ciated by their countrymen that aristoernts found It necessary to couple thrm with the Army and Navy; but when there was a demand for the reduction of the army, the reply was that the volun'esrs could not be depended ??n for soldiers' duty. (Criee ?f "Cane to America.") fie approved the prlnciplu of neutrality on which tho present government had acted In their foreign policy. He had a horror of bloodshed; but he was the last man in England that would see our country Insulted or troddeu upon, whatever the cost of defending her might be. (Great cheering.) We bad now upon our bands a matt unfortunate affair with regard to Amerioa. (Hear, hear.) lit..had watched the whole business with groat In erdfct, anil he thought that our government had acted with tho most perfect neutrality inwards the two parties,although the Northern States had?as he be lievcd, most unjustly?chaiged us with offences of all sorts. (Cheers.) The capture of those four gentlemen od board an English packet waa a matter that must be settled by either of two means?either by peaceable ne gotiation or by the reverse. (Hear, hear.) He boped ibat the Americans would have sense enough to meet the question with justice,and, if they did so, peace would be the result. He waa quite aure that the British govern ment would be most ready te meet them on tbu principle of going no further than was necessary for the protection of the honor and character of thjs country, which were what every Englishman,no matter what may be bis par ly, was decidedly determined to uphold. (Loud cheer ing.) He would not say a word more on tho subject; but he was sure tbey would all join with h.m In hoping that the question would t?o settled without bloodshed. It was only a matter of optuion on his part?a mere speculative opinion, founded on theInfoi tnaUen which he, in common with his countrymen, already possessed on the subject, but he had every confidence that there would be a peace able solution of the dtlllrulty. (Usur, b *r). Mr. J. 91. Cobbett.Al. 1'., Artvlitu Patience ami Neutrality. [From the Iondon Herald, Too. 11.1 On Monday, Mr .1 M. Cobbott, M. I". for Oldhnm, ari !r- ;.sed Lit constituents in th<< large room of the Town Hull, which ?u densely crowd-d. In the course of his speech he raid Tie next came to atopic of constant conversation in private, unit which had well nigh bocotne subject of discussion many times in both houses of rarllament. He meant that which was called the fratricidal warfare botween the Northern Slates and the Southern States of America. Many bought that if that war proceeded to extremes, that If it became serious aud>bloody, as it was likely to be, something or another would occur to tnvolvo Kurnpean "owers in that war, and that England being tho most maritime power was most likely to be one would be Involved. Ho would ssy nothing to stir up had feeling. England declared herself to be absolutely neutral?that she would Ride with uoltbsr party, and I he would say nothing that would disturb that neutrality. Rut no one could hsve missed noticing that very severe things had been said with regard to England, not only by iho press, but also by the public men of America; that things had beon said which were extremely provoking, and that our intoreeta him been very much damaged by what wsa on all bauds considered un unjustifiable block ade of the Southern ports. That subject had been dis cussed again and again: but so resolved had the country and the ministry been that there should be strict neu trality. that really nothing had been said to provoke any ill feeling or want of courtesy on tbs part of the Northern status towards us H<- must say that the people of this country had strictly followed the example set by the gov ernment. Some said that usu not the rase, that the } rit hail favored the South again* the North. On looking to both sides ha could not see thst there had boon anything like such a remark with regard to the English people. That being the state of things which had existed for many months, there had now taken place upon the seas what was called an outrage upon the English Hug. He did not vcuture to go eo far as to pronounce an opinion upon It. He did as ho thought be was bound to do?he waited for tho authoritative opinion given by the Uw officers of the crown to her Majesty's Ministers ; and also for the depositions, that was to say, the information upon which they had given tho opinion. The opinion, in sub stance, had probably leaked out, and everybody was dis cussing It. But they were disc,ssing what might turn out not to be tbe real opinion, but only certain abstracts given by the newspapers of the day. They had not be fore them the documents themselves ou which to mako up their minds. What, then, was their duty? Itwasto uait patiently, and, especially for men tn the position in ,rMih he hau the honor lobe placed, to lay nothing to inflame the pa-tions of the country; to say nothing to exaggerate the accounts thy received; but to ask the pernio to wait patiently until tliey saw what acto n the Ministry took, what they did in conformity with the opinions given to them by those law officers whom it was their bouoden duty to consult belorc they acted.

Instance, we are happy to bolleye, theaentimente of a largo number of persons not formally connected with that body, to express the deep concern with which we hare learned of roceut . vents that are likely to create serious mlvunderetandlngs between this country and the United States of America. We rejoice hi the assurance that, notwithstanding the irritating nature of the matter in dispute and the excited state or the public mind, your lordship's government are prepared to conduct the negotiations w ith the Cgbiust of Washington with the utmost moderation and forbear ance ? nor can we doubt that the generous people of this country, when the first uaturul Irritation has subsided, will uuiply sustain your lordship in such u policy of con dilation hs Hint which under the elroumstanccs would be most worthy of our character as a powerful Christian nation. England can, without any derogation of her dignity, iifl'jrd to be magnanimous in ber dealings with a sister Stato struggling in the agonies of a domestic revo '"we earnestly hope that the answer which may bo re ceived Ironi the American government will be such at to open the wuv for a speedy adjustment of the point In dispute But,' should difficult en intor)H>?e In the way of its satisfactory solution by ordinary diplomatic negotia tion we venture respectfully to subinH to your lordship whether the question on which the controversy turns ?j not of a nature \chich render$ it specially suitable for 1 reference to arbitration. We beg leave to recall to your lordship's remembrance that the principle of arbitration,wb!oh the British govern ment to Its great h"Cor, waa the first to commend to the attention of the Paris Conference of 1854, through the mouth of Lord Clarendon, was rocognlzed and ratified by the unanimous consent of that august body, and embodied in a resolution expressed lu the following terms:? The Plenipotentiaries do not hesitate to express, in the namo of their governments, the wish that States be tween which any serious misunderstand lug may arise should, bororo appealing te arms, have reoofirse, so far as circumstances might allow, to the good offices ot a fr'rhe principle thus founally consecrated by the sanction of nil the great governments of Europe has since received tho spontaneous and cordial homage of ouiineut statesmen of this country of various political parties. It was described by Mr. Gladatone "as a great triumph, a powerful engine on behalf of clvlllratlon and hnmant tv " The Farl of Derby referred to It as "the principle which, to Its endless honor, was'embodicd in the protocols of theConrereuce of Paris. The Earl of Malmesbury pronounced the act of the Con ference in acknowledging and recommending the prin ciple as in hi* judgment and that of the government of which he waa a member, "one of the most important to civilization and to the security of the peace of Europe,' because "it recognised uud established the truth, thai time, by giving place for reason to operate, is ss much s preventive as ahealer of hostilities." We would further remind your lordship that Great Britain and the United States have already in their rela tions with each other solemnly recognized this princlp.e even in its most rigid form of application. In a treaty between the two governments relative te, com merce and navigation, ratified at Washington, Beptoniber 9 lb54 there is a clause which provides that, in case of differences arising between the contracting parties on any matter connected with the troaty. the question in dispute hball be referred first to commissioners, and in the last resort to au urldtrator or umpire to bo mutually chosen, "the high contracting parties"?auch are the terms <>t the treaty?'"solemnly engaging to consider tho decision ol tho commissioners conjointly, or of the arbitrator or umpire, us the case may be. as absolutely final and oouclusivo in eachenso decided upon by them or him We respectfully suggest, my lord, that here arc aullic Titles and precedents abundantly sufficient to warrant the British government in proposing that the question now rending between them and the government ol the United States if it cannot bo otherwise Bottled, should be refer red to the decision of some friendly and impartial arbi trator if it be productive of no other advantage, it wl.l at least afford timo for that exasperation or ihe public mind to subside which unhappily prevails on both side of the Atlantic,and which, far more than any difficulty inhereut in the subject itself, threatens to embarrass the two governments in their attempts to give its pactlto \Ycearnestly pray, my lord, that your lordship and tho government of which you are the head may be endowed with "that wisdom which is profitable to dlicct, which is pure peaceable, gentle, nnd easy to be entreated," so aa to avert from these two great civilized and Christian nations a war whieh would be a reproach to their civili zation and a bitter satire upon their professed ( hnstiani f? 1 JOSEPH PRASE, President. 7' HENRY RICHARD, Secretary.

Thiers), l>ec. 7.] There can bo no doubt but that England has a double interest in the definitive rupture of tho Autorlcan Union, i Not only would this rupture for a long timo Impede tho dcvclopemont of the maritime and political power of the Northern Statoa. but it would constitute hi the South (at least it Is hoped so) a great republic purely agricultural, whlck would bo turned to advantage by the capitalists, manufacturers and shipowners of England, as it has hith erto been turned to advantage, It must bo the capitalists, manufacturers and shipowners of the Northern States. This vast farm, once having established its pretended independence, would pass, as far as regards its oommerclal advantages, front the hands of the United mates to the hands of England by the force of events, and without having any occasion to change ha tlu If English interests appear to us to be beyond discussion in this arrangement, we do not believe, on |h? otfcor hand that thoy can be established in s durable manner even by the war and by a victory. Under the. most favorable tup ikration the Southern republic doet not appear to ?u capable of hma leading a yrotperout existence. A moment's atten tion is sufficient to enable us to comprehend that the causes which hsve urged the separation are causes inherent to the nature of things, and to the actus situation of tho world?that these causes would survive even the separation, and would Incessantly render uom the bad position of the Southern republic until they effected its destruction Wc have repeatedly read all the documents in which the South has explained Its complaint against the North, and the causes of tho soparatlon which It do mauds, with the best intentions In the world, we hare been able to discover. excep>t tho question of tariffs, the three following grievances only, and it will be cully seen whether the separation can afford a remedy.

All our wishes are against that ADglo-American war with which civilization and li berty are at present menaced, but, if such a war should arise, how can wo refers, or how can wo even avoid, tho abundant harvest which ia preparing for our maritime commerce? In the midst of that cloud of cruisers which England will send to evory part of the globe?in the midttof the cloud of prirateeri which the Nor then State* can tend in purmit of the tnomine mertuCiU navy of their admnary, the neutral flag of France will pan free and the mure reelected, at the two partm will, above all, fear to /one. Fiance to ra<t the weight of her award into the scale. Such au instinct of that position prevails that already the French flag la more sought for since the dispute began. It is not only a passing advantage which ia offeree to France; it only requires that the French flag should bo known and appreciated as It ought to be to be extouded throughout the world. The relations which our neutral ity will have established for our commerce will have a great chance of surviving when peace is restored. What Is Thought of Gen. Hcott'i Letter, [From the Paris Pays, Dec. 7.] The General's solution has only one defect, but that Is asoriouaone?it solves nothing. Infect, the arguments of the General beat the air. Under a courteous form they maintain the most radical pretensions. He speaks of con cessions, but makes none. For want of good reasons the Americans will probably endeavor to embroil the discus sion. We know that they will have no difficulty in suc ceeding, st lvast on ths other side of the Atlantic. Th >y will point to the pretension raised and maintained by England to soarch American vessels and claim seamen de serters. We cannot say whether the English would still support the legitimacy of that pretension, and we shall not now examine that question; but on that point, were England a hundred times more to blame, one infraction does not Justify another. If the vessels of the British navy formerly exercised a kind of preae on board Ame can shlpa the government of the United States was able to remonstrate and support its complaints. Treaties were signed, and long years of poaco bare succeeded since that question was raised. The Americans, to their eternal honor, have energetically maintained the rights of neutrals, and they hare supported them against Eng land with a perseverance to which civilized nations will always render homage. Can those principles of the law of nations for which the Americans have fought, and those rights which they have defended with their blood, be now forgotten by them 1 What there can be no doubt of is, thin England has observed the strictest neutrality since the commancement of the American war; It is she who has been insulted, without any provocation on her pert. Right appears up to the present time to be .on her side, and It is impossible to deny to the British govern ment and nations vlrtuo of which her adversaries have not alwaj s set her an example?moderation. ?.A?,,o-FT;f^lgl^...

(Translated from tho Conrrtcr du Havre, of tlie 7th Deo., for the New York Hiiuu>.] Wo read In Lt Droit:?A French commission merchant, I. A ?, residing in the ituo Montmartre, had, in the pursuit of his business, to make a voyage to the United States. On the 12th of October last he sal'odfrom Now York on his return to France. During his passage he made the acquaintance of an individual wearing a bril liant uniform of an officer of the'fedcrai army. A niorchant, a friend of Monsieur A ,alao a pas senger oa the sumo steamer, ami with whom the Ameri can olhcei ?eeraed to have been already quite intimate, introuueed the captain to M. A , as one Captain Lal lemauu, seta by his government to make a large purchase of arms and war materials in Europe. Tho captain seemed to he a man of high fashion and e reel lent manners. In tho course of conversation, he very unostentatiously exhibited some letters and papers which apparently established the validity of bis mission. He made it understood that be expected to get the thiugs he wanted in England, hinting that it would be a most imi>ortant purchase. Allured by tho hope of realizing largo profile, Monsieur A reeo. veil within himself to supply tho goods that were needed IIo sounded the captain cn the subject by telling him that, iust ad of going to Loudon, it would be better to go to 1'aris, where bo would get the goods ou more reasonable terms. He added that, as he was In timitato'y acquainted w ith the place, enjoying excellent ere lit.he might be of great use to Captain Lallemauu, and that there was nothing to prevent him from seeing to the whula purchase. These propositions seemed to cause tho captain to re flect a great deal. When they arrived at Liverpool ho appeared to have the air of having acceded, though with reluctance, to the solicitation of tho merchant, which by this time had become very press ing. He accompanied the morchant to Paris, and at once installed himself in the Hotel du Louvre where, for three days, he led tho life of a Nabob. Monsieur A-? received" him in his houee, pre sented him to his family and friends, carried him te his country house, and showed him all kindness, attention and friendship. Having come one day to see the Captain at tho Hotel tie Louvre, with tho view'of convening with him concerning the operations which he had already begun, the merchant found trim In the public saloon. Captain Lallemaun brought him into his private room and said:?" Will you excuse me if I leave you hero one moment; lam in great need of being shaved, but wi.l return Instantly." At the end of about half en hour be roturned. His dress was in disorder, and he seemed to be laboring under great excitement. "What sort of a country is this tbat I have got into'," he crte'd; "can you believe lt, they have Just robbed niy |>orte monnaie containing $.1-16? It ie shameful." "You must make a complaint," said the merchaut. "Tut-," replied tbe Captain, "will that bring me back my money? At any other moment tbie lose would have been of very little consequence to me; but now it is absolutely neces ?ary for me to go to London to mske arrangements for drawing out the contracts on a New York banker for a million of dollars, so as to provide for tbe payment ot the French merchants who are to furnish these goods." "It would be a great pity." replied Mr. A , "that your operation* should be interrupted by this accident. 1 can advance you the eum you require." And be sent throe thousand francs (six hundred dollars) to tbe pretended captain, who left for England. Before leaving he should bare Informed Mr. A. at what hotel he projosed to stop in London. Not receiving this information, the merchant wrote to him. Tbe Cap. tain replied that he had been sick, but that he was getting better, and that he would return to Paris in a f?w days. "I will not bring the contract with the bonkers," lie added, " as the Minister of Wsr at Washington forgot to give the necessary order on lh?

Jeff. Daw la' Message and tht Trent Case* [From the Coustitutionncl, Dec. 9.J It ie sufficient to peruse this document to perceirs In what extent reconcllliatlon has become impossible the two great fractions of tho old American Union. Mr. Jolforson Davis accused the North of having given to thn wer a character of unexampled cruelty; and, examining wh it has taken place in the Slates which have remained '? thful to the government of Washington, he seeks ta piovelhat the latter has violated the constitution, and does so everyday; that it declared war without tha consent of Congress ; that It has arbitrarily iraprt a nod honorable and lnofisnsive citizens, and that it menaces tha judges on the bench whan they endeavor to sectiro respect for the law. From so many griev ances, Mr. JeMorson Davis draws the conclusion that tha inhabitant? or the South feci nothing but contempt for tbeir former co federates, and that the more idea of agata accepting such an alliance excites among them insur mountable aversion. The Message could not pass over th sHeuco an eveut so grave and so directly concerning ties aflairs of the South as the arrest of Messrs. Mason and Klidell. Mr. Jefferson Davis maintains that as regards tha rights of neutral Powers, the Northern government had no mere logal right to have those gentlemen arrested oat board an Knglhh vessel than In tho streets of Doudao. In tho opinion of tho President of the South that set off violence presents peculiar gravity from the fact that tha persons arrested by the federal navy possessod the sacred chacarter of ambassadors. fTe muni remark thai l/iis pari of tht question has not hitherto been even touched on tin the ducussions of the press or tendon and <f the United States. The fact is 'that the reality of the character of ambassador ascribed to Mesn-s Mason and Slidell depends essentially MS the quality qf belligerent which the South claims in virtna of the logic of facts, but which tho North refuses to (t, and on which Europe has not yet formally pronounced. So lung as this point, which would be the preliminary <e a recognition of I he South, has uot boon decided, it Is easy to understand that England herseif should complain only of the outrage dona to her flag, and should be silent the diplomatic character ascribed to the persona ar rested.

President Davis announces that be not desire intervention of any Euro; eon Power in the present con* diet. 1 he. Southern Slates have pood reason for thai. They well know that the European Powers are still more radically cppo'el to slavery than the Northern States.

Seeing iwragrapho going the round of the English pa per*, to the eflect that the daring commander of the fa nioue privateer Sumior was a passenger on board tha Trent when Lieutenant Fairfax committed the outrage oa the British flag on the deck of that steamer,1 am tnduoe* to notice the report, as being in a position to show that It has no foundation in truth. The captain of the Sumter was in Dublin some days be fore the capture of the Confederate commissioners wag reported here, and he first received report of that Impor tant occurrence from your correspondent. Bo has just left Dublin, nfter a sojourn of about three weeks; and Utat he expects to be hard at work very aoon at his proW sionai avocation is evident from bis repeated declaration that he will soon givo the Yankees s Christmas box, or get one from them if they are the stronger of the twat He is a a thorough Celt, bis father havlt g been a Dublin man. and hi3 mother a denizen of the Highlands; bnt of big own Louisiana nationality and Confederate polities, the fact that tbo federal government have set g reward of ten thousand dollars on his head is positive proof. As he made no secret of these particular* here, but communicated them pretty freely at a public hotel, it is no violation of secresy or breach of confidence to dks cl'?a thoin. He commanded a frigate in the United Btatsg ravy previous to the secession movemont, but threw op lils commission, and surrendered two year*' pay (be cause he knew ho would not get it) on the'breaking out of the rebellion. He carne in disguise all through the North ern States to New Orleans, his native place; nnd, like all Southerners, many of whom we have had viRlting us im Dublin since the breaking out of the war. he declares that there never will be any compromise of the separation policy of t he South.

Jeff. Davis' Message Amongst the Orangn mtn. [From the Dublin Evening Mail (O-gan of England and the Orangoraon), Dec. 0.J The message is characterized by a dignity, a brovity. and a gentleman like reserve whichha:i long b.-eu missed from the lucubrations of the successors of Wellington, Ho records, ns well lie may, with a Justifiable pride, the succession of real victories which ho can pit against the loud promise* and sensation reviews of General MeClella* and lit* government; and ho speaks with only a truthf d severity when he stigmatises the invasion which the North attempted as one prompted "by greed of gain, sod the unhallowed lust of power." In no part'of his message does he speak in s more sensible and self respecting man ner than where bo disclaims the Idea of the Confederat.oa demanding either favor or alliance from any nation ?? earth. So forcible is the tone of tlio message of President. Davis, that wo shall probably return to it in connection with the topic which Is dally pressing on our notice, tha necessity for oa immediate recognition of the Southern confederacy.
