'We have European advices to the 28th uit. The news is lAiAhly interest ing: THE SURRENDER OF GEN. LEE. The news of the surrender of Leo's army to Gen. Grant had created a groqt 'unisation in Europe. The London T' mes says: . -The end has come at last, and the great American war is virtually closed 4y. Lee's surrender of the Virginia army. The tone of the correspondence between Generals Giant and Lee is honorable to both., The conditions were such as it -was no disgrace for an overmatched army to.accept. Not. even Napoleon's grand army could count a series of more brilliant victories titan. the Army of Virginia. They were victorious until vietoty was no longer to be achieved by lbnfmmt valor, and then they fell widx hbnor.' Twvo years agd Leo might have -escaped to Lynchburg, but now the Fodeal Gen&als move with as qitick rapidity and attack as Napoleon's Mar. shale. The Federal army is entitled to rank among the very first of military iations. All attempts to establish -a Southern Confederacy tnnst be aban. donled." Notwithstanding tlje strong sympathy f ' for the South at Liverppol, the in teiiigence of Lee's surrender was received with great satisfaction, cauising an in. creased confidence in commercial circles. THE A88A8s1'NATION OF IRFSIDFNT .JNCOLN.. The news of the assassination of Presi doilt Lincoln and atempted assassination of Secretary Seward had reached Eng landproducing there, and throughout Euro le, a most profound sensation of horror, and calling fottl4 expressions everywhere of earnest sympathy and respect.

"The Age." T HE undersigned has commenced, in the - City of Itlohmond, the publication of a Monthly 31agazine, under the above title. It prosents to its readers selections from the best European Periodicals, of Joiterary and Scientific articles, of Novels and Sket ches, which, having already received the iinpriniature of an enlightened tasto, canbot but prove accoptablo to the Southern'public. The effort will be miade to keep the readers of the Magazine as nearly as possible abreast of the literary progress of the age. Arrang nents have been made which, it is hoped, will enable the proprietors to seouro this end. The Magazine also presents original articles from our best writers; in all .departments, and a special aim of the proprietors of this periodical will be to foster Southern author ship by offering an adequate and remuner ative field for its exercise. They will not, however, under the plea of this design, ei courage, by reproduction in Us columns, that clasp of compositions which create a vivid and unhealthy taste, to be stated only by that hybrid literature which ingenuity has contrived, under the name of sensa tional roman. . The Industrial Resources and the Educa tional Interests of the ,South will re ceive the ireportant share of attention they deserve. In tho development of thqso iues tions, its object w'ill bo to make a practical application of the doctrine of States Rgights to theopolicy of the country. It. will endeav or to explain the dilssloi of t he Confederacy, which is to demonstrate liberty regulated by law, to exhibit-a system of 8tates, eachnsu p rcm6 within-itsfoundation, and only hound by a voluntary alienation of powers. It will vindicate those elemonts of Nat iobal Ildo pendence, which are secured by a high stan daril of intelligence and retinoment, by ac cumulated capital, varied industry and by abundant facilities of interinuication. It will promote the'adoption of all those incas. ures in which the Confederate States are now deficient. And, wbilst the'Constitution of the Confederate States forblils the General Government, to organize nnd operate enter prises of a nature calculated to attain these results, the projectors will consider it their duty to urge upon the States the develop ment of interests so indispensable to the na-' tional welfare. . It is thup that, through the aggregate ability of the separate .atcs, the power of the Confederato States will ho inado manifest. It is thus that the collision of sectional interest and the oppression of a common head will be avoided. The various departnmCnts of literaturo to which the Magazine is devoted, may be named us follows : 1. Essays, original and selected, political, literary and scientific, and biographical sketches. 2. Novels, Tales and Sketches, original and select ed 3. Reviews of Books. 4. Educational Essays and News. 6.

PROSPECTUS. rpHEI undersigned propose to publish a, I Daily Paper, 'under the title of "The Richiond Herald," on or about the 15th of January ult. It will he entiely independent in politics, but will nevertheless nocord to, the Admin istration a just support in all measures which, in the opinion of its conductors, may be deemed promotive of the good of the cause in which we are engaged. A proper criticism of such 'nots as will be deemed adverse to this object, will be, of course, consistant with the independent character under which the paper is to bo inaugurattid. In the matter of Qonoral News it will be found to keep pace with the lealing jour nal.s ot the dlay, while it will have added to it, In the matter of financial Intelligence a feature such as, we vetuttire to say, no pa per In the Confederacy can boast of. Eli torials fro& the pen of one of the ablest tinanclal writers in this or any other coun try'will be presented in ea'ch number. Fot reasons no now proper to be men. gioned, we forbear to give the unines of those who shall compose the regular edito rial stafir; but we flatter ourselves that when they shall appear,'.they will be found to constitute such an array of talent as can, t.ot be excelled on this continent. The well known chara'ter of the indivi dual whose name appears below, as a ste nographio reporter, fiurnishes, we presume, a guarantoo that, in all that relates to im portant political speeches and debates. whether in legislative assemblies or out of them, thi "lierald" will present advanta. ges certainly ntot to be excelled by any pa per in the Confederacy. The farming interests will be faithfully vindicated, and care taken to disseminato the earliest, intelligence which. a proper re .gard for the welfare of that great element of national wealth and power shall demand. In the matter of oorrect commercial in telligence, 2eqnal seal shall' be manifested, ourobject being to assign to each of these departments an editor of known, oxperience and ability. Arrangements are on foot by which to secure the earlicbt, foreign news, and the paper will contain such editorial talent as will fully elucidate the b'earing of foreign diplomacy upou Southern interests. In-short, "The Richmond Herald" will be found to combine every feature of inter est which the requirements of the present crisis denimid. The enterprise is real,cctfully commend ed to the favor and patronage of the citi sens of the Southern Confedoracy. ' P. KEAN & CO., feb 13'65 Richmond, Va.
