Very little has yet' been heard of the French Fleet,

except that it has been seen off 'Copenhagen ; and nothing whatever of the German Fleet. It is reported from the Baltic that the Danish people are eagerly demanding war with Prussia, that the Swedish people are equally excited, and that the Russian Government has informed both that if Denmark joins France, and is in consequence annexed to Germany, she herself will demand a bit of Sweden on the other aide of the Sound, so as to keep her road out of the Baltic open. The Danish Government is trying to keep its people quiet, but the islanders, protected by the sea, think their hour has arrived, and may overwhelm the Government. It is more than probable, however, that they will wait for the result of the great operations on the Moselle.
