upon most of these circumstances wo

lado the gaudy hues of a summer rain

tho justness of our claims for recogni

foon at Washington has time and again
been broken. International law does
not sustain it, for it has been rendered
ineffective at almost every port of on
try along tho Confederate coast. And
as to the late heroic raising of tho
blockade at Charleston, wo believe it
will still further convinco tho honest
minds of tho masses iu Europe that wo
deserve, and havo a right to expect,
immediate recognition of our Confed
eracy, but wo hardly think it will ef
fect anything, in that already England
has submitted to tho , rossest insults to
