At the dsteofimrUstadvicesfroNi the North Tllie loth,|newshad been red I ved of Hie failure of the “raid on to Richmond'’ nnd the death of Dahlgrrn There had bren various ru mors iu the North of his fate; some were tbat he was a prisoner, others that bo was wound ed, and still another account in the New Fork Tnl.une aaid that be was safe, and bad arrived at Wiiliain-burg with hit command I The flrst intelligence received of hie death wee from our own papers taken North by the pre vious flag of truce. This took the North by •u prise as sudden n»U was unexpected, and the announcement of ita'disastrous failure, af ter the glowing anticipations and repeated rumors of its auccess, brought all of Yankee doro to grief. The accounts were taken from our papers, and are published in full in the Northern papers,, affd tb* whole plot is dis closed, together with the manner nnd circum stances of Dahlgren’s death, and the papers and documents found on his person. In gen eral, the Yaakee papers make no comment, but the Philadelphia Inquirer bursts a pean of praise over .Dablgren’s “heroic address" to bis men to “kill Davis and his cabinet," Tliry publish all the account- fromonr owa paper*, from the death of Dahlgron to tb* minute*! detail, but thvy are at a loss what tossy. Had the movement been a success, what a bowl of fiendish exaltation would have gone up from th« North ! The Herald says the responsibility of tht failure of tb* movement against Richmond must be shared bo ween the . President, bis military board of directors; and the comman der »f the army of the Potomac- The Herald thinks that ihvbatardous mesu re was courage ously executed, and would have resulted in the mostdecive and comprehensive sneers* of; all lb • snecesaee of tb# w*r, If a strong support ing infantry de achment bad been eett up the Peninsula to co-operate with Killpatrick.

Tbe Army of tbe Potomac was being organized into three corps, which will bo commanded respectively by Maj. Gens. John Sedgwick, Winfield S. Hancock and Gou*et> nier K.

The fanners were sending their tattle to places of *if#ly„ and a general removal of valuables were k*>- log on—so great was the fear of tbs rebels crossing over. THE NEXT rUEStnySCY. Tbs Herald lias an article in which it give! “a bird’s eye view of the battl- for the next Presidency. The Herald says that it pro si xes to bo “one ot the prettiest polii cal q ipr rels ever known in history.” The Repnhli cdt party ar? to liaie «t least four factions in the fie and —the Red Republicans, who go for Fremont; second, the de. p black Republi cans, who go for Chase ; third, the mulat o Republicans, wuo go for Wedd 11 Phillips; fourth, tbe smutty Republicans, ,vho go or Lincoln.

LATKR PROM KIROPK~RI'NORg OV RICOOBITIOI BY FRANCK Through the Northern paper* we hare late advices irora Europe. The moat interesting feature of the intelli pence from Europe ie a rumor to the effect tuat France hae decided upon an early re cognition of th- Confederate St .tea, and i* now conferring with the Briliah Government •on that step, with a riew of aecuring, if pos sible, England's alliance in the matter. Whether thi« rumor i* worth anything, or ia but a repetiti a of what wa bare beard for ererj sii'y and ya alnce the war began, is ■ a prob.em for the reader to aolve for himself. The atory seem* to bare originated in thia wise: On the arriral of the laat steamer from Airope, a bearer of dispatcher fr in Mr. Dayton, the United States Minister to France, p »ceeded immediately to Washington, taking the rery mrlieat train after hit landing. The aaid bearer oi dispatches ia said to been quite communicative of the rnitur-r of the communication* be bore, and -tepresen ed them at announcing to the Government at Wash ngton the early pu p se of France to recognise the Confederate State*. The Emperor bad Intimatod to Ur. Dayton that, aftor waiting long and patiently, lie could see no satisfactory eridenceof the abil ity of the Federal Government to put down the rebellion and restore tb* Union : and tb* interests of Frau :e continue# KTsuffcr severe ly from the blockade and tb* coesrqueot eui pension of commercial intercourse with the South; that the forbearance of the French Government in that particular bad been met with only hostile c iticiam of tb* Emperor'e Meiican policy by the Northern journals; that the notes which the minister of Foreign Affaire ha I recently received through the United States Minister, in relation to the Confederate steamer* Florida and. Oeorgia were discourteous and dictatorial in tone: and, finally, that it was due to the cause’ of hu manity that something should be done by some power like France, not unfriendly to either belligerent, with a view of terminating civil war which has raged • long without any definite results. Upon this intimation from the Emperor, Mr Dayton d-spatebed a mes senger to his Uoverment at Washington. 'I ina ia the alory. Whether, true or not, it reem* to have exc ted.cousidnrable feeling in the North. The su'taiauc- n tb • above *p peir* in a New Yo-k paper, as a dispatch, double leaded,/runs W tahiagtoo, and la fol lowed up by the eu.iortal declaration, "on the .very beat authoritythat the relviou* be ■ tween the Coiled Guvr.rnniejt and France are in u very critical condition. The story moreover aitau n-*i ao air oi prob*-.ili»y. from the tact that the Paris cirre-ponrietn of the I. md in I*os! writes t» the same rff-nr, and th« story u! nfMmltion seems to have been received both in Paris and London with m ir« confidence ih to ever. The B-puh'ican pipers (it the North treat the ru>n >r w to levity, an t siy there is no truth in it. A dispatch from Washington, as it speak ng hy ofQ ia! aiilhorit/. discredits the whole thing, uo 1 says that it Is but a m -re trick of "oitott speculators; tost “ibe relations <*l the Utiled »ttt-s with both France and E glmd are peaseful aid harmonious, and will be msinlain'd as sue it with both powers, CerUlnlv with Engl tud.” The North counts with certainty in the case of England, and aa an evidence of tb* good feeling co her part, at least, points to the vole in the House of Parliament on the motion for the production of certain papers concerning tb* seizure "of the steam rams.— This, the North regards, was a test question of the feeling and action, of the British Gov ernment, and was decided with the following result: for the nntioo, one hundred and fifty three, and against it one hundred and seven ty-eight. This vote, tb* North urges, settlea the ram questioa in the British Parliament, and adjusts a ma ter which c >uld form “ tha only point of dispute whieh could possibly interrupt the present peaceful relatione be tween England aod the United States. Affairs remain in Schleswig unchanged.— Denmark has accepted the proposition for a conference, but it was considered doubtful whether peaceable results would eu ue.
