BEWARE OF TELEGRAPHIC INVEN
TION8. A telegraphic dispatch, bearing date at Louis
rilk, July 22dj finds its place among the rest
of the telegraphic irresponsibilities of the day,
informing as, among other things, that the
1 Government of Franco has made large; pur
chases of tobacco at New Orleans, and will
oon, test the strength of onr blockade ; that
the Southern Commissioner)! are greatly en
couraged in Europe ; and that Southern clear
ances are promptly recognized, and the South
ern Confederacy flag waving Unmolested from
Havre to Liverpool.
We remember the nature and the falsity of
. the dispatches imposed upon tho newspaper
press in general immediately prior to the act
of "secession by the usurping convention of
Virginia, as well as at other crises in tho pre
sent drama; and a repetition of the artifice
then practised may now be reasonably effected.
If we cannot prove this alleged Louisville dis
patch to be false, wo can, at least, detect in it
y total conflict with all the information we
have received direct from Europe. The evi
dences are most ample that tbu sympathies of
every civilized people on tho face of the earth
are with the United States Government in its
present contest with the rebel States, and to
such extent as to overrule whatever promptings
of temporary intent may stand in opposition
The telegraphic-statement alluded to is well
a. - timed and well devised for effect at the present
moment, which is, no doubt, considered very
opportune for the promotion of evil by means
of falsehood and every species of perfidy,
- and may produce om effect in the South :
'but it can make no impression upon the minds
,of the people of tha rest of the Union, who
have free access to the moot authoritative
sources of information and know that the state
menl quoted U in total conflict with the whole
tenor of the journals and -correspondence most
recently received from Europe.
, The idea ,o this dispatch, like most other
secession ideas, is based upon the assumption
that the whole word of " outside barbarians "
.canst parish if deprived of tha products of the
regions' which used to denominate themselves
,the Slave States "a misapprehension to a
' knowledge of which they will awoken when
, thy find their cherished assumption a disas
trous fallacy, and successful competitors in
every market fur the disposal of tha very pro
duels' in the monopoly ot which they have vainly
Tho "very latest" arrival from Europe is
that of the Nortli American at Quebec, On
Monday of this week and by this arrival we
are aptly enough informed that Lcrd Palmer
ston had just given expressions in gratulatory
terms of the heartiness with which the United
States Government is cooperating with Eng
land and France in the suppression of the slave
trade on tho coast of Africa.
Let there bo no decoption ; the rnr now
-- waged by tho rehel States is not for the preser
vation of slavery as it is, but for the extension
of slavery and its area. Tho purpoae of the
1 General Government is to preserve the Repnb-
v lie nod its Constitution as they aro ( and tho
sympathy and the aid if acceptable, of all the
civilUed nations of the earth, hut especially of
France and England, are substantially, if not
in form, proffered to ns at this present moment.
But, thanks to heavcp, wc need no aid but tho
valor of our own gallant soldiery. To them

meat that has ever blessed a happy, a virtuous

Lcuuviile, My 22. The report of heavy sales
of tobacco having been recently made in New

authority, that the purchase was on account of
the French Government Of course, now that
the tobacco is bought it must begot to sea, and
it is not improbable but what this will be the

of the blockade. Those whoaDDear well in

No small excitement was created in Brooklyn
on Friday, by the appearance of a secession

terday took advantage of the absence of the
boss to extemporize a secession flag, and raise
it to the top of a pole whore the stars and
stripes had hitherto proudly waved. The ob
noxious bunting was first discovered by some
young ladles who wero passing tho shop. They
soon drew attention to it, and in n short time
the " Shaver" was compelled to haul down the
