British and Frexcii Navies. The New York i

Great Britain aud France. From it we learn that I
t the Navy id England consists of 018 armed war ves-

shi- s as could easily be converted into vessels of war. j
This immeuse fleet is armed wilh hctweeii 15,000 and j

these ships aie the terrible iron-plated mongers ol j
G.OOO tons burthen, armed with Aruistroug rifled .
The French Navy consists of 4 10 war vessel, of
all descriptions, armed with 8.522 guns. Her iuferi- j
ority to England is manifest. In tact, the Navy of i
Great Bri-aiu is superior to tbe American and French I

Death r Cot. Sam. Colt. Col. Sam. Colt died I
at Hartford, Jan. 10 of an acute attack upon the

wholly unexpected. He had been ill for several days.
His age was forty-seven. In his death Hartford
loses her most enterprising nnd prominent citizen,
who has contributed more than any other to the
prosperity of the city. His vast works here will be
carried on by the present incorporation, known as
the Colt Patent Fire Arms Manufacturing Company.
Liberia. Within a little more thnn a year, the
Government of the United States under contracts
made with the Government of Liberia, through the
aeency of the Aiuer'uau Colonization Society, have
taken into that Republic 4.500 Africans, recaptured
on the hisrh seas, by vessels of our navy. They are
Bupt.lied with foul, clothing, and shelter, medicines i
and medical attend ance, for one year from the date)
of landing, and are thus brought within the ctviiizing
and Christianizing influences of a Government found
ed and administered by intelligent and right-minded
persons of their own race.
From Memphis. A gentleman who has recently
arrived from Memphis, Tetin , communicates some
important particulars to the Philadelphia Inquirer .
He says there are no defenses below Columbus; that
Memphis is unprotected, nnd that Columbus once
passed, the Mississippi is free from obstruction by
fi.rtifioation the entire distance to New Orleaus. He
sa,s Gen. Polk has 45.000 men a', that place, is very
strongly fortified, and confidently expects to repulse
any Federal force that may be sent against them,
either by land or water. The rebels of Memphis,
however, are alarmed about the fleet at Cairo, and
fearful it may make them a visit at an early day.
There aie btiii large uumbers of Union men iu Mem

" A Strange Sail." The following is from the
marine column of a British paper :
Bklfast. (Ireland.) Oct. 2'Jth. A craft of re
markable rin nnd build, such ns was uever befoie
seen in our harbor, made her nppearance here yes
terday and attracted great attention. She ho:9ts the
Stars and Stripes," and hails from Philadelphia,
under the name of Jonathan May. She steps three
taper and lofty masts, stout enough for a sloop-of-war,
but carries no yards whatever. In length she rivals
a steamer of considerable tonnage, and her breadth
of beam and spread of canvas are amnzing. She is
of beautiful model, and evidently a " hkiiumer of the
(teas." This rare specimen of American naval archi
tecture is loaded to the sctppers with breadstuff.
The Stone Fleet. We give below a full t ffijial
list of the old vessels purchase 1 by the Navy Depart

An Inciik.nt. Thurlow Weed, who is travelling
in England, mentions the fdlowing, as having
occurred during his stay in London. It appear to
give the lie to some of the statements that nothing
but wrath towarls America existed there:
A p'easant incident occurred yesterday. Bishop
MIlvaine (of the Pros. Episcopal Cnurch.) who
attended Church, was identified and invited into the
pulpit, after which Prayers were read for not only
the Ciueeu, but for the President, Congress and Peo
ple of the Uuited States."
A Change. The last intelligence from Europe in
dicates a softening down in the warlike tone of the
British press and people. The London Times in an
editorial condemns Jeff. Davis' message iu the strong
est terms, concluding with this significant para
We confes we read with some impatience the
hypocritical lamentations of Mr. Davis, the President
of confederacy which may be said to live, and
move, nnd have its being under the especial patron
age of Judge Lynch, over the violation of personal
liberty, the suppression of the freedom of the Press,
and the intimidation of the courts cf jjstice, conse
quent in the North upon the civil war. These thing9,
which the South regards with contemptuous astonish
ment, the war has not brought upon her, because
they were all domesticate J with her long before the
war. Nor can we sympathize with the lamentations
of men who have deliberately lit the torch of civil
war, over the cruelties which it has engendered, the
miseries which have fallen upon women anl children,
and the attempt to raise a servile insurrection.
These things were fr the consideration of those who
first lit the torch of civil discord. They knew that
civil war is ordinarily as much mere dreadful than
common war ns common war is than pence.
They who take to the sword, ml it not complain if
they fall by the sword; they whose feet are swift to
shed Mood, must not wonder if they should oce day
stumble in their own. Mr. Davis seems to imply
that by ceasing to grow cotton in the Southern
States will bring ruin on all the interests of foreign
countries dependent on that staple. On this point
let him undeceive himself. The failure of the cotton
supply of the Southern States is like the loss of a
familiar face, at first deeply regretted, then occision
1 missed, and then not missed at all. We are
learning hour well we cau do without him. and are
not unapt scholars.
Prospkct of the Union of Denmark and SwF.Dr.x.
A bill will l e introduced at the next Swedish Diet to

bill is voted, the 1'iinceis Louisa, only child of the
present King, sill succeed her lather, and her pro

will result in the union of these two kingdoms. In
thnl eventuality th Duke of Ostgnthland, brother

FrNERAL of Prince Aluf.bt. The funeral of the

Windsor, which is to be the temporary resting place,
on the 231 Dec. A procession was formed at the
Castle, and on its arrival at the Chapel it moved
slowly up the choir to the appointed place. Tbe
service was performed in a most impressive man
ner by the Dean of Windsor. The body was l.wered
into the vault at 1 o'clock, amid the visible emotion
cf all who were present. The young Princes espe
cially exhibited their grief, which was shared iu by
the brother of the illustrious dead. Outside the
Castle there were al the signs of lamentation nnd
sorrow. First minute nnd then half minute guns
were firel by the Horse Artillery, who during the
ceremouy approached nearer and nearer to the C 8
tle. At Windsor every shop was closed, and the
entire popul. tion, wei. arrayed in the vestments of
mourning. The metropolis presented equally a som
bre appearance, nnd throughout the provinces the
people of England generally paid the same marks of
respect and affection to the great and good Prince
whose loss is go sincerely deplored. The Queen
continues to remain at Osborne, and sustains her
loss with wonderful fortitude.
