FOREIGN. By Cable. London, Aug. 9, 1:30 a.m. Gladstone's Glad-stone's announcement that the English government had at list made specific provision for Belgium's independence is welcomed with a sigh of relief, and a feeling that England has once more vindicated her position as an European Dower. Disraeli only expressed the general feeling of the house when saying say-ing he rejoiced that the government is resolved to maintain the neutrality and , independence of Belgium ; and that he accepted the declaration as an avowal of a wise and spirited policy, not less wise because spirited. Few ministerial statements, the Daily Aeics says, have been received with more general satisfaction. satis-faction. To their many claims to the confidence of the c.own and the support sup-port of the people, the government has now added another, which if it does not transcend at least equals any which it was before entitled to, and shows the fagacity, moderation, and at the same time the boldness of its foreign for-eign policy. It presents a striking contrast to the isolation which has been suggested on the one hand, and the insolent and purposeless meddling which have been practiced on the other. There is nothing from either army up to half past one this morning. Gen. Grossen, who was to have commanded the Baltic expeditionary army corps, is gone to Metz, and the Baltio enterprise enter-prise is indefinitely postposed. London, Aug. 9.
