in our last issue, that owners of lots in

none, we put it down that telegraphic

The Foreign Reoognition.
*The reports and rumr.ors of foreign ree

passing through still say that France 'has
recognized the Confederate States, and
by that recognition, declared war against

in this commnity, (who is one .of the
paroled roldiers,) informs us that he saw
in the New York Jfer ld, the news of
the recognition of the ConfederateStates,
and that the Yankees have had a bruh
tcith the French navy, and been toorsted.
All this may turn out to be nothing
but talk, but we are inclined to place
