Private letters from Thurlow Weed, say . . .

. . . that he would re-embark for home about the 10th of April. He describes the secession feeling, so rampant in London a while ago, as rapidly dying out, and in no immediate danger of revival. Nobody now dreams of breaking the blockade; and even Mr. Lindsay and Mr. Gregory in Parliament, do not hesitate, “out of doors,” to acknowledge that the blockade is effective, and one, therefore which must be respected.
