Oar Eolations with England. .
The Owl (edited by Hon. Evelyn Ashley,
Lard Palinerston's Private Secretary) concludes
an article on British relations with the United
States by saying the peace of the world seems to
depend at this moment upon the firm and joint
action of England and France. Without com
mitting ourselves to the polic of our neighbors
in Mexico, it will be easy to let the United States
understand tliat tne two great western powers or
Kurope are one as to their mode of regarding in

The Owl says that the question of paying an in
demnity tor the losses the Americans have sus

Government at Washington, the British Cabinet
has intimated that it is not intended to pay theii
damages, and that the international I w is on -ur

How 'the Yankees" Persecute the North
We learn that the commissary here is
sued twenty-five thousand rations to our

we were an oppressed people, and the Yan

doing everything in its power to alleviate
our suflerings and better our condition.
Nor was it on Tuesday only that rations
were issued. For . weeks past they have
been issusd daily, and will continue to be
issued up to the end of the present month.
We learn that on Tuesday one man drew
rations to the first of June for sixty-five
persons. We would again remind our peo
pte that there will be no more rations given
away after the close of this month, but citi
zens under certain judicious regulations,
will be permitted to purchase fam-ly sup

Col. Grosvenor who commands post at
Chatanoogn, is entitled to the credit of hav

amusement, he has ordered that "no such
officer or soldier, belonging to tho surren

lowed, under any pretext whatever, to
visit.eny place of amusement, and he threat
ens with arrest and imprisonment any one
who shall violate the order by selling or
giving cards of admission to such interdict
ed persons. We suppose the Colonel must
nave some special reason lor tne issuing 01

Suicide for Disapminned Love Corns
fob the I.i vino. The fact that a young lady
drowned herself on the opposite side of tqe river

I St. Louis Democrat:
Grant's Passion for Smoking.
The June number of Harper's Magazine
has an interesting article, entitled "Recol
