One coming through tho linci st)mehow, from the Norih, i.-i, that the South had been reooguizcd by France and Kag land. 1 think it had originated from httters which have been iieisundcrstood, but which were certainly recoived frotn Washiijg.ua. v.ne at field, K> , fr*»m Lucian Anderson, CoQ^M*»jiUC*r» from’ that District, and the other at Dre*len, Tenu , from the n... iioiis Km:irs.'n Ktheridgo, sayinc th;K h-ijiuiti s would coa.se next month, or at all ev^^^nl ■ ^a-hat an armistice would be pro posed, and begg-ng their respective Iriend*. to use their utmost endeavors to have those States to go with the North.

Let me warn your readers, however, le.-.l uiiduu imporuncc be attached to the rumor, that .Vuder- 800 and Ktheridgo may be writing merely hypo- thcticftUy, knowing perhaps that Grant has been allowed till the 4th of July to take Richmond, but being satisfied that he will inevitably fiil. I think wc should feel pretty san^ino ourselvM on such a hypothesis. The question arises, if Eng land and Frince have interposed, is it among their propositions to have the bcyder Stales de cide for themselves, as implied by tho action of these ]>romin''nt chiracteri*? Ktheridgo says “wc arc whipped,” and Ander son that ‘ the present Congress will recognize the Confederacy.” This is positive. Corr. Mohile Advertiser. Th^. Crisis of the Campulijn.—Gsn. (irant, in fifty days of almost continuous battle, in a cam- patgn mark’d by more subli-ue tenacity of pur- pjse than was ever before seen, haa brought the rebellion to a great turning poin' in its carccr. He has finally compelled the •tlcbel leaders to ad mit that their oniy chance f»r safety lies in ihe abandonment of tho whole of tho Confederacy for Virginia, and he has brought thoiu to the distibet acknowledgment that they can no longer ' hope to rcBist him in Virginia, without tho presence, in that State, of every man that the Confederacy can muster. It is a great deal to have done that, but it is not enough; lor the rebels acting on the necessity made so plaiu by G Bunt’s cpcratious, are engaged in the re-orgaaization of their powers of resistance; and while they admit that they must have more men in Virginia, it is possible that, with more men, they will be ab'e to re*ist and hold out a great while longer. W'ith a large ac cession ol force to Lee’s army, and no correspon ding addition to ours, it is possible that they will he able to resist so long that tho su.'mnier will pass away, and lliehmond still be beyond our grasp. Aod they are making such addi ion to Lee’s army. The corps or division, lately under Polk, is in Virginia, and appearanees irtfltnofn VIBQINIA war HEW8.

They are to be commanded by a Frcnch officer having tho rank of liieut. Gen , who will take his orders ^om the Emperor of Mexico and report on “matters ol detail” to Napoleon. The Yankee Conscription.—The passage of the 200,000 couscription law, without the exemption clause, alluded to in another portion of this day’s i-'feue, produces neither surprise nor alarm. It confirips the terrible loss«2d ot Grant and Sher man, and was, indeed, passed in view ot the lat ter So at leasu says the New York Herald. Grat;t aud Shermau have lost, within the last t^’o u:onth6, nearly men enough to balance the whole nu'uber raised by thia law. Put them in their bands, and they will get them killed off in a very t«hurt time. In the meantime the conscription of w0u,000 men, unconditionally, is apt to work iavorabiy for peace in New England The scoun drels iberc who live on it, and who have beeu more instrumental in keeping it alive than any body dee, will now have to shoulder arms them selves. 'They cannot put it off upnn the Irish and Dutch, Dy paying a few hundred dollars.

Hundreds of acres of what is called sora marsh, covered every day by water, and the ooze left by the tide dried by the :nn, are close around him.
