If KngUind and j Fiance , and h' miiht add Swin, were to recognize that government, he bad no doubt that a speedy termination 1 would be put to this war. He would ask the noble Karl whether any proposition had been received from tne government of France, and also whether any copy of tbe judgment delivered by the Amertoan prize oourts bad been received, and whether the proceedings of these courts were being watched Karl HrsHXLL ? I will drat answer the question of my noble friend whether any report of proceedings of tbe prize courts of tbe United States, especially with re ference to tbe case of the Dolpbtn, has been received at the foreign Office. In answer to that question I have to state that what appears to be an authentic report of tne judgment in the case of the Dolphin was received at the Foreign Office last evening. I should think It right, oer talnly, that all these cases should be watobed I And tbe doctrines relied upon In that judgment are those laid down by Sir W. Grant and Lord Stowell. Whether these doctrines are rightly applied to the circumstances of this particular case is anotber question, and one upon which I offer no opinion. I shall not re-enter upon a discussion which we bad upon a former evening, but I Bill! think that tbe opinions held upon International taw by my noble friend are not in accordance with the high authorities upon the subject. As to tbe second question, whether any communication has been made to tbe gov ernment of this country by the government of the Empe ror of the Fronch, prapnting or suggesting a recognition of the Southern Statu , I have to say that no such communica tion hat leen received. Upon the general lubj'd of recogni tion, I do not think the circumstances are mwh altered since my nnble friend Lord Stratheden brought forward his motion in this House, and I entertain the some opin ions which I then expressed. Tike Alexandra Cam. THB RULING Or THK CHIKF BARON ON THK FOREIGN KNI.IHTMHVT ACT. [Frnm the London Post (government organ), June 25.1 The trial which occupied the Court of Kxchequor during the past three days Involved an Ibsuo the importance of which U would be impnmble to overrate. Nominally, the point loft for the decision of the jury was whether the Crown or a firm of Liverpool merchants were the right ful owners of an unflnisbod ship: but, practically, the matter for adjudication was whether the shipbuilders of this country aro precluded from constructing ships which may eventually be deroted to warlike purposes against a statu with which we are at present at peace. On the ono tide exists the obligations to preserve intact our commer cial rights, and on the other those which make it incumbent upon us to prevent our ports and dock yards being made available for the equipping and fitting out of ships or armaments for the pur poses of aggression against a friendly Power. Passing from the purely legal consideration of the case, it is manifest that, on grounds of expediency, a ma ritime nation like Great Britain, possessing commercial', relations with every quarter or the globe, is bound faith fully and strictly to-fulfll the duties appertaining to strict neutrality. We are neutrals today; we may be bell I ge rents to morrow ; and at we do to other t to we mutt expert to b' drne by The Issue raised in the case of the Alexandra was one consequently not less important In Its conso quences to ourselves than to those more Immediately In terested in the result. We have atabliihrd a precedent to which, when we are at%war, neutral naTiont may tuecet- ful ly appeal. It U thus that we accept tho law us laid down by the Lord Chief Baron and as confirmed by tbe verdict of the jury. The Judge Interpreted tbe particular statute intended by the Legislature to prevent the equipment of ships for the purpose! of aggression against a friendly Power; and the Jury, applying the principles thus enunciated to the raets disclosed in evi dence, decided, without a moment's hesitation, that the act had not been Infringed. In this verdict we entirely ooncur. ? * ? America baa for upwards of hair a century had a Foreign Enlistment act similar to onr own, and the de cision* of American judges allbrd a key to Ita interpreta tion. In a case brought on appeal before tbe Supreme Court of the United States, that grsat jtfrlst, Mr. Justice Story, laid It down that although by the terms of the Foreign Enlistment act the subjects of a neutral State were precluded from equipping or arming vessels for the purpose of aggression against a Mendly Power, they were not precluded from equipping and arming them for tbe purposes of sale to any one, belligerent or otherwise, who chose to purchase them. In other wordt, a neutral may equip a 'hip of-whr I jutt at he may conetruet a ceumon, if he fktendt not to ute or hate it uteti apaintl a friendly Power, tut merely to tell it Ad'ifttno thit ruling, Ute Chler Bftro* laid It down that a British subject might equip a sbf^of war with a view lo telling it to either belligerent without infringing the provitiont of the Foreifn Fnlietment act. Imleed, In the course of tbe trial the learned Judge asked the Attorney General whether such a course woeld not be l?Mtl, and as the latter declined to reply, H may 0* taken that K Is so. Tbe Chief Baron went no far as to say that tbe object or tbe Foreign Enlistment act could not have been tbe protection of belligerents, for other wtso the exporta tion or oontrabrand of war would equally have been pro hibited, and that consequently English shipbuilders had as much right to sell armed ships to either belligerent as they had to sell gunpowner or cannon, or other munitions of war. In the case, however, before tbe Court It did not become necessary to apply these princl pies In their fullest signification. The Chier Baron left H to the jnry whether the Alexandra was '-equipped, arm ed, furnished or fitted oat," or whether it was the inten tion of the defendants to "equip, arm, furnish or (It her out" within her Majesty's dominion* for purposes of ag gression against tbe government of the United States. Tbe act doea not prohibit the ??building" of ships or auy description; and as It was shown that she was not. at tbe time or seizure, "equipped or armed.'' and there wsa nothing to show that It was Intended that she should be so equipred within ber Majesty's dominions, tbe defend ants were entitled to a verdict. The Alabama was' fro queriHy referred to In the course of tho trial, and it may possibly illustrate the Interpretation which must he put on the Foreign Enlistment act when we say that the Chief Karen, In summing up, pointed out that in her case the act was not infringed. She was built In an Eng lish pert, but she was equipped and armed in Portuguese waters, where of oourse the English Crown possessed uo jurisdiction. It may be said that, ac cording to this interpretation the Foreign Enlistment act will prove a dead letter If the Chief Heron's views of tbe object with which that act was framed? namely , not to protect helllgcreuta, but lo prevent vesae's equipped for the rival Powers In neighboring docks lighting whilst still in our harbors or In our waters ? is correct, It will not. If, on the other hand, Hs ob.iect was the protection of the commerce or a friendly Power, it rerlstnly seems (lo :-tay the le**t of it) that Its provisions Ac be very rasliy evaded However," with consequences neither Judges nc r Juries liave anything to do It Is, at all events, a satisfaction to feel thai tbe I <ord Chief Baron has acted In accordance with a high American *uthoritv in his in terpretation of the law, and It Will be lmi??*tt)le for the American government to question the soundness or bis opinion without also impugning that or the greatest of their lawyers Mr Justice Story f trom tbe lundon Times.

Instead of ships of war , we may be sure that the t onfederato* would have spared no |>a<ns to intercept the consignments of Hlrm Vngham "htrdware." For the purpose of watching que* tamable proceedings agents must be impli'Ved. and agents so employed are neither more nor less than spies Work of this kind Is distasterul le very scrupulous men, snd It follows that it will generally be earned am by pei eons of easy conscience and unenviable cha racter In this case, perhaps such extreme vigilance wsa hardly requisite, for there seems to have bee a little concealment No evidence was produced for the defendants , beoaase they did not rely on their Igno ranoe but on the character of tbe transaction, aa proved by the wltaeaees for tbe Crown. It was on the latter that the burden of proof lay, and the reaelt shows, sot that onr courts are dlvpaeed to lavor Illegal privateering, bet that a law against equipping privateers In this country must he a dead letter so long as they can be built ber* and equipped at sea or el**w}cre. rhia result, which Mr. vdasns' representations bsvs beeo tbs means of bringing out into string relief, le not altogether satisfac tory , and leavoe the morality of aiding either side In a I civil war exactly where It.found It. but it could not have been avoided without importing into jurisprudence a new principle, which the Amertcaas, of all nation*, hay* IDe ^ most reason lo deprecate.

[From the London Timet, Jane 25 ] Tbe alx propositions ror an accommodation between Russia and Poland to which England baa made herself a parly have oome upon us with all tbe abruptnesa of a surprise. They were produced by Lord Parmerston to the House of Commons witbont pressure, and apparently from a wish to gratify the not unnatural curiosity of his audience. We are ao little In the habit in this country of being taken Into the oonfldenoe of the government daring negotiations with foreign Power* that we feel some em barrassment In availing ourselves of the liberty of crltl clsm which Is thus offered. ? ? ? But, should these overtures be reieotod, what* la our position? We are acting in concert with Prance, but with different views and different interests. We both wish to 'save Poland, but there tbe agreement be tween ua necessarily enda. Wa have no wish to re conquer, or to see France reconquer, the frontier of the Rhine; no desire to take advantage of the present weak ness of Pruaaia. caused by the Infatuated folly of ber king and his ministers: no wish to overthrow tbe l.alance of European power by humbling or crippling Russia. We have nothing to gain by war; wo have every reason to wish for peace. There may, of course, be sometblsg behind all this which would . If we knew It. remove the difficulties we feel. We have been informed what our own course is: we do not accurately know the coarse of France or of Austria. Thil slate o f affairs appears tout full of danger, but there may be means of escaping from It with out war and without discredit, which we, with tbe im perfect Information we possess, have failed to appro head. RUSSIAN CKUI8ERS AND INOLISH TRADERS. [From the Moscow Gazette, June 10.] All the commerce of Kngland is on the sea. Thirty thousand merchant vessels convey on the ocean Kngllgh property which Mr. Cob jen estimates at one hundred to one hundred and twenty millions sterling. Tbe coarse which these ships follow In tbe Atlantic, as well as on tbe Indian Ocean and the Pacific, is so well defined, thanki to the indica'itmi of Captain tfaurv. that it is like a high road. That Power which, traversing these parts, should seize English vessels appe irlng there wouM deal a terrible blow at British commerce, and this la what our sailors and vessels of war would be perfectly able t" do in case of a war with England A vast field for their activity would then be open to onr vessels with out presenting any very great dangers. The space Is auch that tbe pursuit of an enterprising cruiser would be very difficult, and a good captain cotild destroy scores o: cargoes without having to engage in combat. Daring the war in the East, after the affair of Potropaulow ski, an American merchant ship, on ita arrival at Shang hai. announced that it had been stopped at sea by a Kus slan frigate, and that it was only released in consequenco of its American nationality being proved by tbe papera onboard. Tbo rumor of this affair spread In the com mercial world, and tho merchants In the Chinese ports would only entrust their merchandise to American ves sels. Hong Kong at once expected an attack from the Kusslan fleet. Admiral Sir J. Stirling, commanding tbe English uaval force In those regions, was unable to com ply with all the demands for escort which were addressed to him. The rumor wax, however, false; there was not then a single Russian ship at sea. If a false report led to I such a panic, what would b* the effect produced by twenty or thirty cf our cruisers?

Ike Steam* Mp PderKof, her Cargo, Jackie , dk.? la this case, the reading of evi dence taken in prepara/oru) having closed, Mr. K. Dela fleld Smith, the District Attorney, produced and oflhred In evidence a circular letter from Bennett ft Wake, char terers of the Peterhoff, addressed to shippers, whioh had been attested In London, forwarded to Washington, and a certified cepy sent here by the Secretary of State. Counsel for the dlaimanu? Mr. A. F. Smith and Mr. L- 1 Sherwood? opposed the admission of the letter, on the ground that It did not oomefproperljr before ths Court. The District Attorney relied upen a similar owe? that of the Romeo, 0th Robinson, 881. After argument the Court received the paper, without passing upon Its legal elTeot. It is ss follows: ? Kq. 77 Coamiix, & 0., Loraoir. Wot. M. lMt. Data Sib? We may state for (he guidance of any friend* who may be desirous of ahipplng to Amerlaa that arrange ments have been made for the despatch of a veasel by us to the Rio Qrande about first week of December; that cost of freight and Insurance goods can be paid at the port of delivery : the **rvlcee of the llrm of Mraars. Brown, Fleming A Co., at Matamoroa. bare been secured. also those 01' -Mr. Red gate, Lloyd's agent, an expert In cotton, and who bus been resident nearly forty years In Texan and Mexico; that gentleman's eei vie s will be of great value to shippers In re-pect to his local knowledge and InCuence, as also as regard* acency of the lnlan-1 transit and landing and ship in* of goods and cotton. Mr. Harding, of the linn of Menu *. ardlng, I'ullalu & Co.. o: this city, baa been named, and coiiM'nte l to ait as factor for the receiving of the proceed* In cotton, and the equal distribution of same to the slui p rs ao eordimt to \alue of resiiective shipments, and who will e licet the ne essary insurance Kurther, a Mr Besbre. of the Con federate States of America, hold* a contract from that gov ernment wheieby he Is to receive 1> 0 per cent on Invoice cost, payable In ootton at specie value, clear of all charges of freight, .tc., for any goods he may deliver Into the Con - federate State*, said contract having been authenticated by Mr. Mason and othera He is willing to share sain*, sav to the extent ol fifty per cent, with any houses who may feel inclined to ship. Moreover, said parties are at liberty to send out their own supercargoes, and If the goods can meet with a better market snippers by our vessel may avail themselves of said contract or not; but In the latter case ther* will be no certainty of getting cotton baok. as the wagon traffic cannot be properly carried on without the aid of government support in shape of teamsters to attend to cuttle, and which the Confederate government will supply from the army to facilitate the inland transport or goods and Uie bringing back of cotton for the contract. In the event of peace or cessation of hostilities the Confederate government by the contract bind Itself to receive good* that aie shipped hut not delivered, and lor any order* not ship ped ; but In course of same, ten per cent proper upon invoice cost and charges. Any further information you mar require we shall be bai py to give our best etloru to obtain from the respective parties Interested. We remain, dear sir, vonrs, truly, J AS. J. BKNNETT A WAKK. Hufore counsel for the claimants opened their anru ment the District Attorney, at the suggestion of the Court, stated the points upon which he should rely in asking fur the condemnation of the vessel and cargo ? We claim In the first place that the real object of the voyage of this vesaeliwas to supply the forces in rebellion a.:altist the government of the United states with articles essential to the continuance of hostilities against the gov ernment; aud we cite the ca?e of the Commerces 1 When ton, p. 38. We claim that the vessel and all her c:irgo must be conuemnedjupou th- principles applicable to contraband of war. 1st There was contraband of war on board, and we allege against the owner of the ship privity to tbo contract. I refer to Hnlleck's Inter, national Law, p. 872, sec. 5, and to the onset) there cited, which aro very numerous. We do not claim that ali the goods on board the vessel are contraband, of cource; but we do claim tint there are no goods on board owned by any person who Is not an owner of contraband artielos, and, therefore, we say that the Innocent articles must be coodemnud as well as toe contraband. I cite the authorities which are stated at p. 673 of Halleck's "International Law," sec. 8. We claim that the true d?s tinatlon of this cargo was the section or the United States in which the war is raging against the authority of the government, and under that head we claim:? First. That the evidence in the cause establishes that the ostensible voyage to Matamoroe was false and simulated . and that the evidence demonstrates that the true destination was such blockaded port In the dlaailected section uf this country as the vessel might succeed in entering. So cond. That, even tbongh It be true that the vessel do signed to go to Matamoro*. yet the true destination or the cargo was Texas, and that the voyage to Matamoro* wax a mere contrivance to do by Indirection what it was not regarded as practicable to do directly; and I maintain that ths circuity was rteorted to to carry out Ue illegal attempt, and so far frosn relieving the vesael from condemnation, it only ac cumulates th* evidence of illegal Intent 1 refer to l>uer on Insurance, vol. I., p. 630; the Commeroen, roPbeaton, pp. 888-0; Wheaton's Klenents of InteBatHinafljtw. oh. 4. sec. 38. I maintain that such a voyage, even though the destination be to a neutral port, carries with it all the consequences of condemnation as legal prize of wsr, if it, be true that the object of the enterprise m to carry con ? traband to the enemy, no matter how clrcuitously ; that th* circuity and indirection do not aid the claimants, but on U>e contrary form cumulative evidence agaiusl then. < ourt ? You do not take the ground that if the voyage was really au honest voyage to terminate at any neutral port, it is to be condemned)' District Attorney? So, sir; ws admit that If th* de sign and object of this enterprise was simply to carry a cargo of goods for sale and final disposition in a neutral port the voyage might be perfectly .ogai. even though the market at Matamorns may be improved by the fact of proximity to the enemy 's country . but we claim that the "ourt is bound to look into the substance and e-ssncs of th* whole transaction; and If th* direct trauslt ol these foods through Mnamor s inioT-xas was in contvmplstlon by those who undertook the voyage or regarded hy them, and was in fnot necessary to the success of their enter prise, aud te the gain which was ths object of their *n Urprwe, It uoer not help them that they took th* good* to a neutral port. 1 suppose we must admit that if the goods were taken to a neutral port, there to be sold and disposed of In the regular couise of business; to retoaiu there a reasonable time, ao as to enter Into the legitimate commons of that place, tbe y could not be condemned Ihe line of demsr< ation is ex veediiigly narrow, there is no doubt, but the r0urt will look Into the essensr and substance of the whole transaction, snd, I re) eat. If It was necessary to the success of this en terprise If it was contemplated by tint** who projected th* enterprise that these goods should go through Mala moras into Texas, why then they must ha condemi ed And we shall claim that these good* would uever have been taken to Matamoras no such nak would have been undertaken no eaterprise of tbi* magnitude would hav* been pro ected at all with the idea that the*e goods wer* to remain any substantial length of time In Matv moras. because the uncertainly of the rabeUioo. tfee i act Aat it is ciumbling to a fall? all these notorious fae** be ing considered by men of the saga< Ity of these shippers, would lorb d such an Idea. Court ? bo you say that, suppose th*** goods wsr* to be landed In a neutral port as the property of neutral owners, you ean i ny n i re as to what the subsequent purjmse was* District Attorney ? Perhaps the counsel for tne captors (Mr. Upton) may claim, but I do not undertake to ci.nm , that there is any piotabilnm In the law of nations to a legitimate trade to Matamoras I suppose that centrals have s right to trade there Out I do claim that If matters of puklic notoriety present the tart in such a way to the Court that it must see these parties coriiemplatrd the Immediate transit of these goods through Matamoras into Texas, and that all the incentive to Hie enterprise was founded upon the Idea that these goods were not intended as legitimate trsde to Matamoras, but that that port was to be an entrepot, and they were Intended for T*xss, then they are so biect to condemnation. In other words ; whsriss it I* true that goods cannot b* taken directly to tbe enemy, even though th* port were not blockaded, and If they were taken under lite circumstances I have sup posed, they would be comlesined ? so they < annot be taken by circuity or indirection The? >ouid not take them to Matamorss, although they there took their hands of! from the goods, and there left them to be disposed of, if It was In contemplation of tboee who took them to Matamoras that thsy wsrs to be sent by other persons to Texss We say that constitutes s case of carrying contraband of war to th* enemy. I refer to Duer on Insurance, p. 678, see. 11. I Reads from the authority, j Ths Court will lock Mo the essence or the transaction . snd It doss not matter whether a ship of war was at Matamoras , with which the goods could he transferred to ths (oof sder a t*s , or whether from the narrowness of th* river, the proximity ef Brownsville snd the Onnfederats forces, or the sass wMh which the goods coold be trans ferred In lighten, the principle to be derived from this aethorty , it sesm to me, Is clear, that If the goods were take* is s neutral port with a view to thetr transhipment to ths enemy's port, that Is Mifraad of ths helllgsrsnt right. It certainly ? on principle, for there never was an instance m ths history of maritlma warfare wbsrs sa eoemv would heve been more esa*ntisiiy asserted than by this very transaction it ths enterprise had succeeded. We nlsim in respect te contraband of war, that where it is attempted to redoes ths snemy by famtns there I be doctrine sf contraband ef wsr is to bs extended and enlarged And that principle applies wherever there 18 s blockade, because tbe very ewence of a blockade Is to deprtvs the eoemv of means sot only of carry leg on Ihe war with shot and shell, but so to reduce 'them ss i hat they cannot carry it on st all. and that their b<?tlle attitude may be reduced to the attitude of sup pliants for the necessaries of life We claim the doc trine of contraband of war. as tattled bv thaed indicated eases sad slementary authorities, applie* hertV condemn as contraliar.il of wsr sverytbing which can bs of any assistants to the people or armies of the se-calMd umfeaeratne and wa claim that the Omm will look al this point In Ihe light or the actual, sea 1 ilium of tbe forces and people of the so-carted Confederates Tfc Court will, tor Instance, beer j ? mind that V cksberg I all the oth*r day from want of . provision* shajl reisr to mcU fa la, ami claim that Ihe (?nodltlon rf tho OMtfsderata*. a* the etfwld was aware, was sneli IbSt there H hardly tui art|.. > on beard I th* vessel Utst is not costgabsod of war.

Undoubtedly tbe Onort will take coguixance of the nature of thla war. TbU war M not oue cuch as would be waged against a commercial country, where the reduction of a few oil lea would end it B t here tho reduction of Mobl'e, Charleston aad New Urieans does not end tbe war with tbe confederate* It muat be ended by tbe application of blockade ? by tbe strict en forcemeat of tbe belligerent right of blookado, and tbe right of exchidlDii frim tbern Such articles as are neoes nary to their support Thuy must be reduced, and prob ably cannot be without the enforcement of the blockade and inhibition of all attempt* ol neutrals to carry contra band of war to ibetrjaMialauGa. We claim that the property of Mr. Rednate is in a predicament which calls for its condemnation As the, Court la very well aware, the que* tlon of the personal status of Mr. KedgaU Is not miterial to tbe issue The question has do refersoce to Mr. Kad gate himself, exoept to establish that he is a resident of the enemy's country. We aay he la a resident of the enemy's country. Then ail Inquiry as to htm ceases. It d'es not matter whether he is loyal or disloyal; as soon aa it lacatabliabed that he ia a resident, bis property ia liable to condemnation ; and if there ia any reason why It abould Oe restored to bim, that la a consideration t? be addresaed to the government, and not to the Court.

Bckkt Swixni.iKd. ? On the tlBtof May last, a man nam ed rascal P. Spear a, of Lawrence, New York, came to this city in company with a friend named I'ron tiso, with the intention of proceeding to California. They went down to the steamship Ocean Queen for the purpose of taking a passago on boirtl her. They thero foil in with a man named I.eoke, who, on learning their Intention, said bo was shipping some goods to California and intend od going out there himself to join his brother.
