The London Tim-t (city article) of the eveulng of 17th says:?Kngllsh fund* were firm at the commencement this morning, but closing prices ultimately the same as yes terday. In tho discount market to-day the lemand waa moderate. About ?12,000 in sovereigns were taken from the Hank to day for Ami rica Tho railway market Is Oat, owing to n falling off iu the traffic. It is stated that tho Bank of France has experienced a further drain of gold to the amount of ?800 (XX) or ?400,000 since the publica tion of the monthly roturn on Friday last. They aro understood, however, to havo purchased about ?160 ,U>0 of gold in Germany. The Rank of Engianu's rate of discount at present Is far In advance of the terms of the principal continental oltles. Transactions can be efleeted on Paris at 6\ a 0 per cent, Brussels 5, Hamburg, Frank fort and Amsterdam 3. The Timet deprecate* the secession movement. The Southern confederation would become the real United Btates, ah far as territory premnt and prospective Is cm corn ei I. It is doubtful whether connection botwoen New York and New England on one hanil, and Illinois and tho neighboring Stales on the other, wou>d long survive a total (separation of the South. FRANCE. A semi official article was expected, declaring that Should Piedmont make war on Austria she must expect no aid from France The military preparations or Franco were on a scale of great magnitude.

It la ufaek'ESto add that the Kngllah press take good care to Bay that tics ' projects meet with a terrible resistance In Portugal, aa<i (hat if any Power in Europe should favor thorn KnjJand would opposo it with all hor might. This news agrees perfectly with a Lisbon letter, which ??>?? that a pamph*t is circulating in that capital favoring the annexation p Portugal to Spain. It is believed there that this work although printed in I'aris, was originated in Ij6bon^n? tbat it represents the idoae of a party of no mean ruiuenoe. ITALY. It wa> believed that the In u would be roeumed on the 21gi at Gaeta. The Sardinians wore resolved to at tack by sea without delay. All that has been said about the substitution of ships or other countries for those of Krauce in pure invention, as well as the no:i recognition of the blockade of G.iota, whether by R.ui-in or Spain Any ship which, arter the 10th, comes to anchor before the place will expose Itself, and, by virtue of the i iglils of war, be Orel upon by the Sardinians.

CON6ULAR ACTION I.IABI.R TO BE REVIEWED BT fOIIION MMM.

R. sausse, C. J., and S. J. Arnould, P. J., en the ground that the lower ceu t hud no Jurisdiction to try the case, the defendant being an American Consul, and rec olrlaf the money in a Coubu lar capacity, and therefore amenable onlytohiiowu government. rhe case was most ably argued. Ou the one side it was held Oonatil* wrro subject to the Jurisdiction of the country in which they resided, and were not privtlrgnd like Ambassadors on th" other hand, that when and bow tho extra wages should be paid to the feanten was a point to be decided by the Consul, ac cording to the laws of his country upon the subject; that the question whether feamr-n compiled with the wwanary conditions was a matter for the Omsul to decide; aud that If be erred It was tho United Stales, and not the lii mbay Small Causes Court, which was to overhaul his deration. In the derision of tho case the Chief Juctico said that in the opinion of the Court the Otnsul could not claim ei ernjitiou from Jurisdiction, and tbcreforo the appeal was discharged, but, as in the opinion of ths Court, the case on its merits should liave be?n decided In favor ?f the ie fi-ndsot, the rule was dlscliarg?d without costs. He hotted litigation weunl now cosro. To this .tension, Mr .tustlee Arnonld adiled the remark that if the Consul, Instead of pleading " I hare not re ciuved any money except in my consular capacity." had pleaded " I have not received any tienier for James Bailey. but only for fco United States,'' it would bars been a good ans wer in tho action.

The eatuWi^ment of ? direct line of steamers between Norfolk and Liverpool or Havre has often been suggested, but various obstacles always prevented the acoom pllaUmcut of the scheme. It is believed that by calling at New York on the way the most formida ble obstacle may be surmounted; and another ob jection which has always been urged with marked effect-the want of traffic-is in a great measure removed by the completion of the Virginia and Tennessee Railway, with its connections to Mem phis. A steam line from Norfolk, running in con nection with this railroad, would give to the peo ple of the border slave States and to the people of the Mississippi Valley what they have always ardently desiied?an ocean ser vice of their own. Not only Virginia and Tennessee, but New Orleans, Natchez, \ icks burg on the south, and all the towns as far north as St. Louis on the other side, would, if such a line were established, import thfir goods in its ships direct from Europe, and in return would send their produce out to Europe by the same route. The completion of the unfinished link of road be tween Covington and the Ohio river would feed the line with a share of the produce of the \iest as well. But the Southern traffic alone ought to suffice, in course of time, for the support of the enterprise. We submit that this is a scheme which deserves, and ought to obtain, the support of Congress. No time should be lost in granting a mail contract to the now line; and, in view of the novelty of the enterprise and the difficulties with which It will have to contend at the start, it would not be extravagant to grant a subsidy?in the shape of mail pay-of $25,000 a round trip. tho establishment of such a line would work a * revolution in Virginia and Tennessee such as the people of those States can hardly realize. The agents of the various trunk railroad lines are vigorously competing with each other for the transportation of cotton from the South to various Northern ports. Contracts are being made by the Baltimore and Ohio, the Pennsylvania, the Erie and the New York Ceutral roads. We learn to-day that an agent of the Grand Trunk line of Canada is about proceeding to New Orleans and Memphis to contract for the transportation of cot ton to Liverpool, via Cairo, Chicago an-PQuebec. If this secession business lasts, the trade of the Northern ports tlis summer will be unprecedent edly Urge.

Tbe money market remains unchanged, bat the oA?r ings of first class (taper are so small th it the rates may be considered nominal But few new obligations of this kind am being created, and these are mostly absorbed by tbe banks There was quite a panic this morning among the dep<?llon> in the snvings funds, and a heavy ?'nin" was made on the Philadelphia, Western, National and othor companies. The meet of the money thus drawn out finds its way into ibe banks, and materially increase* the deposit? of thee* Institutions. Tbe banks are pursuing a very conservative course, and the liberal spirit mani fested in renewing obligations to tbooe who are torape rarliy unable to moot the Indebtedness to certainly worthy of commendation. It is announced that the coupons of tbe first mortgage bonds of the Philadelphia andSonbury Railroad Company, due February 1, will be paid at the Bank of Commerce The boston 1'ost furnishes the following infor - mation relative to the Lake Superior copper li ines:? In December, the Quiney got out 133 tons, the Pew.iMe 62, the Franklin 6l? tons of mineral, rhe Pewabic ma chinery was stopped for two weeks, and the raising of copper to the surface was interrupted by various causae. Tbe January yield will show "very different figures," says the Mming Gozttot. Ihe Quincy mill stopped early in January, ano would not run again until Pfebruary. The mining force on tbe thiee mines will have few alterations. The Isle Roy alo has recently increased its force by oae third,on the finding of a rich deposit of barrol and stamp copper. Ibe prospects are describe! as " improving," but it to not weighing up ita copper. A mass of 13,600 pounds lias betn sent from the National It is 12,000 pounds heavier than any previously reported. The Columbian "has suspended operations." If we understand it, the Isle Royals le looking well, but will make no attempt to get out copper th<s winter. The time and cost are mainly to be devoted to opening. Unless tho ex|ienditure, there fore, is kept at a lower figure than wo think It can be, an ?assessment during tbe spring is not impossible, although tbe mine may be belter th<n ever. The Uancock seouis Improving. Tho vein Is above fourteen feet in width at one point, and in many places is exhibiting rich stamp stuff and some barrel copper. The holders of tho stook are quite sanguine as to the future. It is reported that the IVwtbic Company has made a two years' contract with the Revere Company, with regard to sales and ad vances. the Utter to lake all the metal produced. This report has increased confidence In the stock and made It in good request. At Chicago, on Saturday evening, according to the Tribune? Tbo excLai-ge 'ook another turn upward, the current rate being six per cent premium for currency?a rise of S of one per cent. Ihe demand lessens as the price In creases; but the inconvertible character of our currenoy leaves both our merchants and city bankers no resource. Tho real fact is, that to day our currenoy Is wirth only ?4)^ cents on the dollar, for coin will si ways command exchange at % per rent. Tbe business public are there fore paying the utterers ?''"our well secured currency" per cent for tbe privilege of using their promises to pay. We very much mistake tho character of onr Legis lature If tlie* do not deprive a few gentlemen of the privilege of imposing so outrageous a tax upon the busi ness public.
