NEWS OF THE DAY.
Our Washington correspondent transmits further intelligence concerning the plans of Disunion traitors to break up the Confederation in the event of their being unable to retain the power they have so long wielded to the country's injury and dis-grace. The Disunionists know well that the in-telligent masses of the South are opposed to their schemes, and their purpose is not to consult them at all, but to have a Convention elected by the Legislatures of the Seceding States, and to confer upon this body full powers to dissolve the Union and elect Mr. BRECKINRIDGE to the Presidency of a Southern Confederacy. It is also reasserted that the Emperor NAPOLEON has been consulted on the subject, and has given promise of protection when-ever intervention shall become necessary. How-ever criminal these designs may be, they can only be regarded, in a practical point of view, as the in-sane and desperate efforts of men whose ruin is already certain. The success of these schemes' does not come within the range of possibility, and their revelation is so far opportune that it will dis-suade many voters, North and South, from sup-porting men so disloyal to their country and a cause so utterly reckless and unworthy.
By the steamship Fulton, which passed Cape Race on Sunday morning, we receive three days' later European news. There is continuation of the intelligence, previously reported, that Russia and Prussia had protested against the Sardinian inva-sion of Naples. It is said that if no notice is taken of the protest, the Russian Ambassador will imme-diately leave Turin. King VICTOR EMANUEL had already entered Neapolitan territory, and was ex-pected in the capital on the 17th inst. The Royal-ists were making preparations to renew the con-test with the Garibaldians. All the European Powers, except England, refuse to recognize the blockade of Gaeta.

Five of the Twelve are now absent among the "Gentiles" working for the cause of Mormonism. An agricultural fair had been held at Provo, which was attended with considerable success, and another was in progress in Salt Lake City at the date of our correspon-dent's letter.
