The times has a sarcastic editorial on Lincoln’s proclamation for a day of thanksgiving, and think it quite premature, as the affairs at the time were most critical and battles were impending; it was the meaning of that part of the proclamation which refers to the deliverance from foreign invasion and intervention; it thinks it cannot be for justice in the Mason and Slidell affair.

It is proposed to consolidate the public debt of France in one uniform security of three per cents.
