The News in Europe.
Tbe latest Lewi from Europe gire still
farther bccoudU of the immense excitement
produced in England and France by the
news of tbe fall of Richmond, The Eng
liah papers, of which the telegraph hu
given ni abstract and tome selections from
which appeared in yesterday's Leidkb,
are nearlj unanimous in the opinion that
the rebellion cannot survive this last
and crushing blow. A few however per
sist with determination worthy a better
causa in hoping against hope. The Sun
thinks that Lee will invade the North. Ere
this it has probably changed its opinion1
The Index, distinctively the rebel organ,
declares that only the first act of the war
is played, and thinks that there is hope for
the South in the second act. .Nobody
teems to have expected the immediate sur
render of Lee, and that news will probaoly
create a yet profoonder sensation.
Xbe f rencn Uovernment and news
papers, wbsse whole American policy is
concentrated in Hexico, receive the news,
as is very natmal, with ill-concealed
chagrin. The French, like the Englich
press does not seem to contemplate tbe
possibility of Lee's surrender, and predicts
terrible, inexorable guerrilla warfare.-
Tbe interesting proceedings in the
French Corpt Legtilatif, which we printed
yesterday, the eloquent plea of M. Felle-
tan for the North, and the manner in
which he was silenced by a brutal majority,
will attract universal attention.
Both England and France appeared very
anxious to learn something concerning the
foreign policy now to be pursued by tLe
Unl ed States. Mr. Seward's speech wts
regarded as pacific. It is said that tbe
French Government has sent new instruc
tions to M. de Hontholon, enjoining upon
him to be very cautious and to avoid every
thing calculated to divert the Cabinet of
Washington from iU policy of non-inter
The News in Europe. Anna Dickinson on the Murder of the
spoke the Academy
of Music in Philadelphia last Saturday eve
ning, on the murder of Mr. Lincoln. Tbe
Inquirer gives a sketch of her remark,
from which we copy the following :
" In the death of Mr. Lincoln bv tbe
band of the vile assassin the government
lost one ot its noDlest spirits, and the world
one whose example was well worthy of
imitation, in mm coma De seen all the
noble qualities of an honorable and hieb
minded man. The slave whose chains have
been made to fall from him, rejoices to
day, while reaping the fruits of his useful
life, and the government feels the value of
the principle established in the carrying
out 01 nis designs.
" lie was tbe open ana determined oppo
nent of tbe slave power, an enemy to the
man-eteaier, ana tne oppressor of man
kind. In him we beheld an honest man,
even bis enemies bearing witness to this
fact. In the future his greatness will be
dwelt upon, aod his many acts of kindness
will De considered Dy the thousands of lib
erated men on southern soiL W'thindesc-ib-

ed tbe fatal shot, who Struck the fatal
blow, was on worthy of our sympathies;
his name should be lookod upon with
hatred, and those who were his accompli
ces should be dealt with by the sternest
rigor of tbe law. Humanity turns from
the assassin and his colleagues with the ut
most norror, ana all honest men hate them
with a perfect hatred.
" The speaker here alluded to the lead
ers of this vile rebellion, as deserving the
most severe censure. She felt that she
could not find words strong enough to ex

plause. She demande J that justice, sern,
inflexible justice, should be metad out to
them. In behalf of outraged law this should
be done. Their crimes have rendered
them unworthy of the respect of honest
men. Hanging should be their deserts.
Look at the thousands of widows and or
phans made by them, and then tell me
what they deserve; ther acta of treason
are worthy of tn severest punishment.
She ventured to say, of the two, Lee is a
viler murderer than Booth. He has not
even the pitiable excuse of independence.
He stands as a traitor to his flag and the
murderer of half a million of men. He has
not even the merit of keeping tbe promiae
he made, of fighting in his own state. His
very name has inspired the rebel army,

for several miles are densely filled with
people ti witness tbe parage ot the funer

Kailroad station, from wbl :h the remains
are to be conveyed to Springfield. The
crowd seems to be as large, if not larger,
than those assembled yesterday mcrniig
when the funeral train arrived. The coffin
was transferred from the hearse to the car
especially designed for its reception. Many
voices join in singing a mourning dirge,
bells are tolling, and before the music o an
instrumental band has ceased we leave

A similar drapery falls from the eaves and
the colnmns supporting the pediments,
both on the north and south entrances are
wreathed with evergreen, and the capitals
are draped with white and black muslin.
All the windows are partially curtained
with black. The general arrangement is
artistic and appropriate. Tbe entrance to

columns, tbe panels of which are covered
with black velvet, trimmed with silver

THE WORLD ON THE CONSPIRACY.
The World's account of the conspiracy
to murder the President and officers of the
cabinet says : There is no doubt but that
Booth intended to kidnap the President,
before the idea of murdering him was con
ceived. Proof of this fact has been found
in his sealed letter. Within the city limits
is a house belonging to Mrs. Green, mined
and furnished with underground apart
ments, furnished with manacles and all ac
cessories to private imprisonment Here
the President and as many as could be
gagged and conveyed away, were to be
concealed, in the event of a failure, to
run them into the Confederacy. Owing to
his failure to group around him as many
men as he desired, Booth abandoned tbe
project of kidnapping The house was
discovered hut week, ready to be blown up
at a moment's notice.
THE EXPEDITION TO TEXAS.
A Washington dispatch to the Boston
Advertiser says considerable interest is
manifested among military men to know
what commands will be included in the
expedition which rumor says is shortly to
set out from here to complete tbe demoli
tion of the re'elliort by the occupation of
Texas. It is thought probable some of the
troops now massed so heavily about Wash
ington and Alexandria will be employed
for tbis purpose.

leveled. ' A strong guard is no w in charge
of the spot, and will continue to keep it un

thickly that no one will ever be able to dis

corpse was interred from the nameless

ARREST OF CONSPIRATORS.
About midnight of last Saturday the
steamer Keyport was ordered to the Navy
Taid. She received from the monitors
Sougus and Montonoak prisoners who
have been arrested as being directly con
cerned in the conspiracy to murder the
President and other Union leaders, and
who number fifteen men and one woman.
These prisoners are all heavily ironed with
balls and chain on ' each log, and hand
cuffed in such a manner as to keep their
hands several inches apart. Some of the
most desperate ones have their hands fast
ened behind their backs, with a sort of a
sack covering the head and face of each,
leaving only the mouth and nostrils ex-'
posed, so as to prevent their recognition by
each other. A special sentinel is in charge
of each prisoner. A sign was given for the
Keyport to start, The steamer's- bell ran g
slowly, as if muffled, the prisoners giving
a convulsive start at the sound, evidently
thinking that their hour of retribution had
come. They were transfered td the dis
trict penitentiary, ajoining the arsenal,
where cells had been arranged for them.
Two prisoners occupy each cell, but the
sentinel in charge of each man p events
any conversation. Notwithstanding the
large number already in custody, several
more of the assassination consprators are
sun at large. Their early apprehension
considered almost certain.

I have the hnor to inform the Depart

blockade of Bed river this morning and
passed the city at a high rate of speed, but
so unexpected was her appearance that
she received only two shots through ber
hull in passing. As she approached the
city she was flying the United States flag
at half msit and mistaken for an
army transport. The Holy hock, Florida,
Quaker City and Ossipi were dis
patched in pursuit of the ram - the Holy
hock far ahead. When about twenty-five
miles below the city, the ram encountered
tbe Bichmond coming up. The Webb
then headed tor the left bank of the river
ran on shore, and was set on fire by her
commander, who proved to be E. G. Reed,
formerly of the U. S. Navy. Her crew
consisted of 45 men ; and ber crago was
cotton, rosin, and turpentine, so that (he
soon blew np, her crew escaping to the
swamps, except three, two of whom were
captured and are prisoners ; the third was
destroyed with the vessel. Her armament
consisted of three guns.
