The New York Tlmtt of yesterday publishes
a transition of an article from the (Opinion
Xatlonati, a rarls Journal, of March, disclos
ing tome Important facts In regard to the
building of Ironclads for the confederates In
French ship-yards.
In consequence of the opposition of Lord
John Russell to the construction of confeder
ate cruisers In England the Opinion Xuttonalt
The Confederates have directed their appli
cations to France, and, by way of a beginning,
have ordered a whole squadron, guns, shell,
ball, Ac, and Messrs. Annan, of Bordeaux,
and Yoruz. of Nantes, more audacious than
Mr. Laird, of Liverpool, have undertaken to
deliver, at tne expiration oi ten montns, sev
eral vessels of war, completely equipped and
readr for action. These vessels were, osten
sibly, Intended for the establishment of a line
between China, Japan and Ban Francisco, but
their real destination was soon discovered, and
Mr. Dayton hastened to enter his protest oe
fore M. Dronvn de 1'IIuvs. the moment be sue'
cccded In getting possession of undeniable
The nrinclnsl acensatorr documents, to the
number of ten, were transmitted to M. Drouyn
de t'llujs on tne -'-a oi Deptcmoer, loo.,
It appears from the Indications given by the
Opinion Xallonole, that Mr. Arman and Mr.
Vorux had contracted with Captain Bullock, of
the rebel nary, to build four wooden vessels,
which had been In progress since April, 1803,
and subsequently they had agreed to build two
Iron-clads, besides shot and shell.
The psper goes on to statei
The Freneh Government, havlniz onlv very
lnaccurato Information relative to the destina
tion of theso vessels and the nae to be msdo oi
their armaments, lisd furnished Mr. Vorux
with every facility desirable for the fulfillment
of his contract.
On the 8th of October, Mr. Dayton brought
to tho attention of M. Drouyn de 1'IIuys fresh
proofs, among others a copy of a contract
signed July 10, 1 SC3,whcrcln Mr. Arman agrees
to Mr. Bullock to construct fro Iron clad ves
sels, and a copy of an agreement, dated on the
17th of September, In which M. Vorux prom
ises to furnish Cspt. Bullock with X pieces of
cannon and l'.'.OOO shell.
At length. In a last letter not less explicit
than the preceding ones. Mr. Armsn proposes
to Mr. Maury, " Rear Adm,lral of the Confede
rate States of America," to construct, on short
notice, six new Iron-clad gunboats, according
to the plans communicated to him by Mr.
Jameson, and he agrees, moreover, to furnish
in one month alter tnceignsiure oi tne con
tract, proof that ho has in hsnd the authority
necessary ror the delivery oi tne armament acs
lined to bo placed on board oi tne gunuoats.
Tho correspondence between all parties re
sulted In sn aisnrance from the French Minis-
ieaux at the Opera House, on Wednesday next.

ter to Mr. Dayton, October 23d, 1803, that tho
authority to arm the vessels already built had
been withdrawn by his Govcrnmcnt,whlch wss
determined to adhere to a atrlct neutrality.

adds the following significant remarks.
One might believe thst this list letter or M.
Dronjn de 1'IIuys terminated tho diplomatic
difficulty which we lisve Juit summed up, and.
Indeed, for a month or two tho construction of
the iron-clad vessels and these not Iron-clad
