The murder has produced a profound sensation in Europe. The
Emperor of the French instantly forwarded a letter of con- dolence to Mr. Bigelew. The British Ministry propose on Monday to move a formal address to the Queen, praying Her Majesty in any communication with the American Government to add an expression of the grief of the Houses ; and the Italian Parlia- ment has been for three days draped in black. In France horror and regret seem to be universal, and in the north of England even Liverpool, always Tory and always Southern, has voted an address of condolence to Mrs. Lincoln ; and all Ireland appears to be passionately excited. Only in London is there a mixed feeling. Strange to say, the educated class—which has in the main been Southern—is full of grief and sympathy, individuals among them expressing both by the most unmistakeable signs. The mass of the workmen here are indifferent, and it is only from them that any brutalities have been heard. The press, with only two exceptions, has expressed the strongest abhorrence of the deed, the two exceptions being The Standard and—strange to say—The Globe. The former applies to Mr. Lincoln the words used in England to condemned criminals, the latter publishes an elaborate exoneration of the South. It is necessary to remind the Americans that on such points The Globe does not represent the feeling of the Government.
