OI course it was refused. Tlie rebels de
manded the removal of the women and cbil

FROM EUROPE.
Lord Rncsell Denies that Napoleon Wish*
e* to Mediate.?Mr. Roebuck wants the
Rebel* Recognized.
Halikax, July 7.?The steamer Asia has ar
rived with late European advices. In the
House of Lords, on the 27th, Earl Russell de
nied the statement that Napoleon had renewed
his overtures for a joint mediation between the
Federals and rebels In the House of Com
mons, Mr. Roebui k stated that he should bring
up a motion tor the recognition of the Confed
erate States on the 3(ith.
The Vienna Journal mentions a report that
Lord Palmt-rston will endeavor to inunce the

ence to the King of the Belgians.
Low Hon, June 28.?'The confederate loan is
at Ircni 1X :i2K discount.
The Persia's advices excited attention to-day.
The impression prevails that Lee has made a
mistake in invading the North that will give
Lincoln great assistance in raising means, and
will again excite a warlike feeling throughout
the North and tend to prolong the war.
FROM PORT ROYAL.
A Negro Deserter Executed?Defenses of
Folly Island.
New York, July 7.?The steamer Arago has
arrived from Port Royal on the 4th.
A deserter from Montgomery's negro regi

No French Mediation.
New York, July 7.?The Commercial's
Paris letter of June 2,'ld. say* the report that

Frederick, Tuesday, A. 3VL?[Correspon
dence Baltimore American.]?Since my letter
was clesed last night, events here have cul
minated so rapidly that reference may now b?>
made to matters that were then treated with
reticence. Frederick has again become the
scene of activity that belongs to the presence
at a great army in pursuit of a llyinn enemy.
By the time that this reaches you the whole
Army of the Potomac, travel-worn and battle
scarred, yet buoyant and enthusiastic as I
lave not se?n it since it laid before Yov ktown,
w ill be here, and a large portion of it gone for
ward perhaps to seek a new battle-field.
The avant couriers of the army have been
passing through the streets of Frederick all day.
Throngs cf cavalrymen, long lines of wagons,
md galloping staff officers have made the
streets resound with noise and excitement.
Gen. Meade has not arrived, but is hourly
'xpected. It is probable his headquarters may
se here for a day or two.
Parties who left Hagerstown to-day report
hat the head of the rebel army had already
ommenced coming there, aud that there seemed
o be indication* that it was to be massed there,
lerhaps to try conclusions again with the Army
)t the Potomac. This is, however, very doubt
"ul. The greater probability is that Lee will

?his side ot the line. If, with his army buoyant

ind sensation correspondents ornament hyper
tolical paragraphs with such predictions. But
he doing ot the thing is next to impossible. In
his case there; are geographical facts that
ncrease the difficulties. The Potomac, above
larper's Ferry, makes a considerable bend
lorthward, and Lee s line of retreat from Get
ysburg to the river at Williamsport is shorter
han any other route that we can pursue. His

Such remarks .as these are only necessary to
revent the belittling of the glorious triumph
ained by our army by those who may be in
lined to forget what has really been accom

The Letter From Jeff Davis to President
Lincoln.
The following is the dispatch in full (noticed
in our telegraphic dispatchesofyesterday) sent
to the N. \ . Herald by the Washington corres
pondent of that paper:
Washington, Jnlyti, 1S63.?On Saturday,
the 1th lust., the rebel gunboat Dragon came
down the James river with a flag of truce
Acting Rear Admiral Lee sent up an officer to*
meet it, when it was ascertained that Alexan
der H. Stephens and Commissioner Ould were
on board. They represented that they were the
bearers 01 an important letter from Jefferson
Davis, Commander-in-Chief of the Array and
Navy ol the Confederate States, to Abraham
Lincoln, Commauder-in-Chiei of the Army and
Navy ol the I nited States, and requested per
mission to proceed to Washington in the
Dragon and present the letter to President
Lincoln in person.
They declined to reveal anything farther in
relation to their mission than is above stated.
Admiral Lee, of course, had no authority to
gr.mt their request, and thev consented to wait
until he could communicate with Washington,
and recei\e instructions in regard to the matter
He accordingly telegraphed the^iacts and re
quested instructions. This morning a special
Cabinet meeting was called to consider the
matter. The granting of the request involved
many delicate and important Questions, as
such a proceeding might b^ construed into an
acknowledgment of the nationality of the pre

the matter might be some comparatively unim

No decision was arrived at, and the Cabinet
