What the English think of our War Policy, — Letters have been received by Senators, brought by the last English mail, from Messrs. Bright, Richard, Cobden, the Duke of Argyle, and other members of the Liberal party, stating that unless something is done very soon to demonstrate the ability of the Federal Government to put down the rebellion, and to convince the Anti-Slavery party in England that we are in earnest about emancipation, the sympathy of the Liberal element will be lost, and the Southern Confederacy must be recognized. Immediate action, they add, should be taken to abolish slavery in both Delaware and Maryland to begin with. — New York Tribune.
