The whaling bark Milo has arrived in twenty-eight days from the Arctic, with the crews of several whalers destroyed by the pirate Shenandoah last month. The whalers Edward Casey, Hector, Abi gail, Euphrates, William Thompson, Sophia Thornton, Jireh Swift, and the Susan and Abigail were captured and most of them were burned. The Milo was bonded for the purpose of taking off the crews. The Shenandoah was continuing the wholesale destruction of the whalers, and would probably soon destroy another fleet numbering sixty vessels, Her commander was informed of Lee’s sui render and the collaphe of the rebellion, but did not believe it. He believed in Lin coln’s assassination, tor he expected it. The Shenandoah coaled last at Melbourne. She was manned by English and Scotch sailors. Some of the captured whalemen joined her. , Tiik Confederate Cruiser Rappahan nock. —The Navy Department has received a despatch from Captain Walker, of the United iStates steamer Sacramento, dated Kingstown, Ireland, July 10, detailing his the Beatrice, late the Rappahan nock, while on her way from Southampton to Liverpool. On the afternoon of the 6th inst. he received information from Minister Adams that the Beatrice had eailed from Southampton for Liverpool. As soon as steam could be got up, which, from inabil ity to get wood for kindling the fires at Kingstown, where she was coaling, was not until the next morning, he started for Holy head. He says: As we approached Holyhead a bark-rigged steamer was reported to me in sight, steam ing and sailing up the coast, close to the shore, with English colors flying. I imme diately steered for and overtook her about two o’clock. She was steaming with but one engine, and making slow progress ; but she kept so close to the coast that I could not molest her, without violating the inter national law of protection. * * * * * After due consultation and a thorough obser vation of her movements, Iflwas convinced that I could not possibly make a legal prize of the vessel—which, from appearances, was the aforesaid Rappahannock—in British waters. She was in a crippled condition, steering for Liverpool, when I left her. The General Episcopal Convention.— ln view of the approaching general convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church a* Phila delphia iu September, Bishop Potter of New York, has addressed a fraternal letter to the Southern Bishops. The most important portion of the letter is embraced in the sub joined paragraph: * ‘“I have corresponded on the subject with the’Bishops, and think myself authorized to state that they sympathize with me generally in the desire to see the fullest representation of the churches ftom the South, and to greet their brethren in the Episcopate with the kindliest feeling.” , The New York Times of the 27th, in notic ing this letter, says : “If this appeal should be responded to by the Southern Bishops, in the spirit in which it is made, the result, politically, as well as in a religious point of view, will be of the greatest importance. Opposition will doubt less be made by a minority of the conven tion to the representation of the Southern churches. But there is no doubt Bishop Pot ter correctly interprets the feeling of the vast majority of the members of This communion. They desire to set an example of peace and fraternaktegard. And in doing so they do their parj both as members of the church and citizens of the republic.” The Situation in England. —The London correspondent of the New York Times, speaking of the complications surrounding the Government party in the recent elections in England, says: “Then the demands of the United States Minister are troublesome, and some go so far as to say insolent. The demand tor the sur render of the officers and crew of the Ala bama, which has been so pointedly refused by Earl Russell, has been renewed by Mr. Adams in terms so decided, that the govern ing & sorely perplexed. They do not dare to comply with the demand on the eve of the election, for a cry of “cowardice! violation of British hospitality,” & c., would be raised against them. On the other baud, to refuse, may bring about what they are most anxious to avoid. If it were only the money, it could be postponed awhile and then paid. If the election were over it would bo different. The only comfort is, the renewed friendliness with the Emperor, the approaching union of the iron-clad fleets, and repeated assurances that France and England are perfectly agreed to act together in all matters relating to America, The no tice that the Confederate cruisers will be taken, under whatever flag they may be sailing, is also looked upon as a threat full of danger. And then, what is General Dix doing at Quebec?" ’ Internal Revenue Decision.— The Com missioner of Internal Revenue has decided that manufactured which a duty has been paid according to law, may be cut‘into smoking tobacco or fine cut chew ing tobacco, if done in the presence or under the supervision of an inspector, without be coming liable to an additional duty. The tobacco must be weighed before so cut, and no addition to or subtraction from the same. Movements op Gen. Sherman.—Cincinna ti, Thursday, July 27.—Gen. Sherman left here this morning for Lancaster, Ohio.
