ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Great excitement has been created in di plomatic circles in consequence of tbe President's Proclamation directing a block ade of southern ports. It appears that a blockade to be respected by foreign powers, must not only be effetual, but that due no tice must be given of such intention to their representatives. With Brasil and all South American governments, a notice of 90 days is required under treaty ; but this has not been given by our Government, benee con signments or cottee and other natural pro ducts dosigned for southern ports are delay ed in their transportation to that portion of the countrv. Merchants not being satiaiied wilh the effects of an immediate blockade. it has therefore become necessary that spe- cine enquiries Iks made of the Federal Gov ernment in regard In this subject, so that all treat v rights and privileges tie not dam aged. I'lio Foreign Ministers will insist that the stipulations shall be respected and observed, otherwise naval forces will be des patched hither as a means of foreign protec tion. The delicacy of tbe question is ap parent and from what is known may in volve serious consequences to all concerned ; at all events, may produce trouble now as well as in the future Monday Night's Report.
