Tho State Depart ment lurnisbed tho President with the offi cial correspondence between Minisl'rs Faulk ner and Thouvenal on American affairs. Faulkner informed him that the President entertained full confidence in the speedy re storation of harmony ami unity in tho Gov ernment; that events might produco tem porary inconvenience to French subjects, but all injury should bo indemnified; that tho Presidont thought it not improbable that there would bo an appeal made to for eign Governments by tho Confederate States for a recognition of their Independ ence, and when such and appeal is made it shall bo opposod by the Minister who may then represent tho United States. Faulkner said tho only request be had to mako wbs that no proposition recognizing a disimobertnent of the Union shall bo consid ered by Franee till tho arrival of the Min ister who will be fully instructed. Thouvenal replied, " No application has yet beoD made. Tho French Government has never acted hastily on such questions." He aassured Faulkner that no precipitate action would bo taken on the subject by the Emperor. He said tho established usage was to recognize de facto Government when proper case was made out. In reply to a question, Faulkner, said that force would not be used, and that the only solution was modification of tho Constitution or peace able acquiescence in the claim of separate sovereignty. Thouvenal thought the em ployment of force unwise. In the Secretary of State's instructions to Minister Dayton, ho is to consider the in struction of former ministers by tbe Presi dent as unchangeable, notwithstanding any opinion expressed or recorded by his prede cessor. To assure Thouvenal that no dif ference of opinion exist between the Presi- dent ami his Cabinet; thvj path is plainly marked out by stem necessity, and not at , . . " i the bands of tills Administration is this government to end. Franco gives assur-: aneo that she will not take any hastysteps. , ., t ,,; .c ,i ..... ..l.t tonded by roservnlions. Mr. Seward says, in reply to Faulkner's answer that force would not be used, tfce. ; that the time when theso questions had any pertinency has passed. Insurgents, with deadly warfare, seek to eompel the Govern ment to recognize the dismemberment of tho Union. We have accepted this civil war as an inevitable necessity. Constitu tional remedies are still open to tho insur gents, and will remain so. You cannot be too decided in making known to tho French Government that no idea does or will exist of suhVring a dissolution of the Union to take place in any way, pea enbly or forci bly. It has never entered the mind of any candid statesman here, and il is high time it bo dismissed by European statesmen. (Signed) SEWARD. Yesterday's Report. Washington, May 0.

French papers publish tbe Pope' pro test against Victor Emanuel being crowned King of Italy. Paris Bourse 68f. 35c. Tbe Richmond Examiner is considera bly exercised on tbe subject of Washington City. It calls upon Virginia and Maryland to rush in and drive out the Black Republi cans. " From tbe mountain-top ana val leys to tho shores of the sea there is one wild shout of fierce resolve to capture Washington City at all and every human hazard. That filthy cage of andean birds must and will assuredly be purified by fire." 1 From this we infer that it is the intention of the gallant Virginian to burn tbe capi tal when they have taken it. " Our people can take it," howls tho Examiner, "they will take it and Scott the Arch-Traitor and Lincoln the Beast combined cannot prevent it." The chivalrio taste of these epithet is sufficient to indicate their South ern origin. No one but a slaveholder could be capable of tbe fine ferocity of call ing the President of the United State a beast or of terming the loyal and devoted Scott a traitor. It is only in the land where whoa they shout for Liberty they mean Slavery that such abuse of language could be possi ble. - Tribvn.
