IJONDON, An grist ?.-The Lord Mayor
gave a grand banquet to the ministers
last night. Tbe guests numbered 250.
The usual loyal toasts were given and
drank with oheers. Cardwell, Secretary
of "War, replied to a toast to the army,
asking that the reserve force and militia
be included in the toast. Ho referred to
improvements made in modern warfare
ana speculated on their effect. Glad?
stone responded to tho toast in honor of
ministers. He alluded to the unusual
oiroamBtances under which they met,
and proceeded to review tho leading mea?
sures introduced in thc session of Parlia?
ment now drawing to a close. The Irish
land bill was characterized as u peace
measure, and tho education bill as a
blessing to England, giviug, as it did,
free instruction to all. Alluding to the
war, the Premier regretted his inability
to confine his retrospect to the topic of
peace. He asked in tho name of wound?
ed humanity, grieving civilization and
religion, could anything bo more deplo?
rable than the sight of nations of the
highest civilization, with institutions
nearly perfect, famous in every depart?
ment of history and tho admiration of
the world, rufdiing into conflict aud mu?
tual slaughter. The issue was difficult
to state or appreciate, and no intelligent
mind could suppress its horror at tho
spectacle. Gladstone then spoke of Eng?
land's position in tho war, as follows:
First, the idea of England is neutral.
Second, the idea of Euglaud is prepara?
tion for tho worst. Her neutrality is not
indifference, nor is it a selfish solution.
It is dictated by thc necessity of mitigat?
ing the evils of war-of confining them
within the smallest possible circle, aud
of rotaining power to iutervene at the
proper momeut. Nothing will be done
to forfeit tho friendship of either party,
and nothing will be omitted to retain
their confidence, so that wo may avail
ourselves of the first opportunity for re?
newing our efforts at mediation in a
quarrel the most mournful and miserable
ever witnessed by mankiud.

LONDON, August 2-8 A. M.-The war
news, this morning, is meagre and un?
important. The London journals ap?
peared to-day without a word from tho
rival armies on the Bbine. Active re?
cruiting for the marine has been ordered
ot tho E?glish dock-yards. The impres
siou prevails that the arrival of the
French fleet in the Baltic at once pre?
vented the Prussian advance through
Frnnce to Paris.
LONDON, August 2.-Yesterday's de?

A largo body of French aro moving on
Bcplying to questions, Gladstone said,
in the House of Commons, tho policy of
tho Government was not ono of armed
neutrality, but of friendship to both
combatants. He declared that the obli?

was restricted to British waters. All

LONDON, August 2.-The Times, this
morning, has a long editorial on tho
prospects of tho war. The writer thinks
tho delay in military movements on both
sides can be ascribed to tho demoraliza?
tion of troops from having been moved
by rail. The French also are delayed on
accouut of hesitation of the South Ger
mau States, and are now necessarily con?
fined to tho narrow ground of Saar
Vally. In fact, the entire foreconceived
plau of the Emperor has been altered by
unforeseen circumstances of this sort,
and bas acted probably to form a new
ono. The Times argues that the aim of
the French Chassepot, on accouut of its
fouling speedily, will bo found to bo iu
fiuitely less efficient than tho noedle-gun,
and tho difference, in this respect, will
probably be sufficient to govern the re?
sult of the war.

this point has been irregular during the

feature of tho market was a comer
against speculators, who put a largo

These speculators for a declino dis?
