Washington, May 5. Tho State Depart
ment lurnisbed tho President with the offi
cial correspondence between Minisl'rs Faulk
ner and Thouvenal on American affairs.
Faulkner informed him that the President
entertained full confidence in the speedy re
storation of harmony ami unity in tho Gov
ernment; that events might produco tem
porary inconvenience to French subjects,
but all injury should bo indemnified; that
tho Presidont thought it not improbable
that there would bo an appeal made to for
eign Governments by tho Confederate
States for a recognition of their Independ
ence, and when such and appeal is made it
shall bo opposod by the Minister who may
then represent tho United States.
Faulkner said tho only request be had to
mako wbs that no proposition recognizing a
disimobertnent of the Union shall bo consid
ered by Franee till tho arrival of the Min
ister who will be fully instructed.
Thouvenal replied, " No application has
yet beoD made. Tho French Government
has never acted hastily on such questions."
He aassured Faulkner that no precipitate
action would bo taken on the subject by the
Emperor. He said tho established usage
was to recognize de facto Government when
proper case was made out. In reply to a
question, Faulkner, said that force would
not be used, and that the only solution was
modification of tho Constitution or peace
able acquiescence in the claim of separate
sovereignty. Thouvenal thought the em
ployment of force unwise.
In the Secretary of State's instructions to
Minister Dayton, ho is to consider the in
struction of former ministers by tbe Presi
dent as unchangeable, notwithstanding any
opinion expressed or recorded by his prede
cessor. To assure Thouvenal that no dif
ference of opinion exist between the Presi-
dent ami his Cabinet; thvj path is plainly
marked out by stem necessity, and not at

Mr. Seward says, in reply to Faulkner's
answer that force would not be used, tfce. ;
that the time when theso questions had any
pertinency has passed. Insurgents, with
deadly warfare, seek to eompel the Govern
ment to recognize the dismemberment of
tho Union. We have accepted this civil
war as an inevitable necessity. Constitu
tional remedies are still open to tho insur
gents, and will remain so. You cannot be
too decided in making known to tho French
Government that no idea does or will exist
of suhVring a dissolution of the Union to
take place in any way, pea enbly or forci
bly. It has never entered the mind of any
candid statesman here, and il is high time
it bo dismissed by European statesmen.

Paris Bourse 68f. 35c.
Tbe Richmond Examiner is considera
bly exercised on tbe subject of Washington
City. It calls upon Virginia and Maryland
to rush in and drive out the Black Republi
cans. " From tbe mountain-top ana val
leys to tho shores of the sea there is one
wild shout of fierce resolve to capture
Washington City at all and every human
hazard. That filthy cage of andean birds
must and will assuredly be purified by fire." 1
From this we infer that it is the intention
of the gallant Virginian to burn tbe capi
tal when they have taken it. " Our people
can take it," howls tho Examiner, "they
will take it and Scott the Arch-Traitor
and Lincoln the Beast combined cannot
prevent it." The chivalrio taste of these
epithet is sufficient to indicate their South
ern origin. No one but a slaveholder
could be capable of tbe fine ferocity of call
ing the President of the United State a
beast or of terming the loyal and devoted
Scott a traitor. It is only in the land
where whoa they shout for Liberty they
mean Slavery that such abuse of language
could be possi ble. - Tribvn.
