Trie North We of:en speak of 61 as oar
jev of preparation. We have never ceaaetl to pre
pare to improve oar pHns and orgtnizition to
correct our erly mistakes to crow io fighting
cpcity al knowlclfce of the art of war. The strife
his bred its owu Generals men capable of haoJ
lin Urge armies, and of exhausting the resources of
attack and defense. We hare no Napoleon for such
Geaerals are century plants. Old Europe, with her
chronic wirs and huge armies cannot boast of a
Genertl of a higher order of ability than Soult or
Iesaix. Allowance roast be made, also, for the
natural difficulties of the coantry. the lack of topo
graphical knowledge, and the use of new artillery,
requiring special study. Our infantry, cavalry and
artillery will now, we think, stand the test of com
parison with any in the world. The foreigner has
ceased to sneer at our " skirmishes," and begun to
prote-t against the terribly destructive character of
the battles fought. As for plantation opinion of the
capic-.ty of free States to sustain a protracted war
without financial ruin, to withstand the array of
Southern steel," to send horsemen into the field
able to meet the troopers of Stuart, to fight success
fully beyond the cover of gunboats, and to subjugate
traitors, we imagine there has been a mighty, but
tardy, revulsion. But one battle has been fought
upon Northern foil. Southern cities, carefully forti
fied aod defended, have been captured and held.
Our cavalry have defeated Stuart's horsemen in a
dozen fights and raided the South in a stile never
equaled by the enemy. We have repeatedly attacked
aod driven the foe from the strongest positions, and
the majority of the battles fought iu the open held
have terminated in National victories. Finally,
while the slave States have been devastated, and
tu-ir power of raising armies exhausted, the free
State have maintained peace within their lorder,
enjoyed an extraordinary degree of prosperity, and
shown that, tdiould the emergency require it, they
can put another army in the field outnumbering the
huge ma-tses of the past and present campaign-). A
more decisive vindication of democratic institutions
could not be desir d. Beneficent in peace, they
hae demonstrated their tendency to strengthen the
feinews of war. Sac. Union.
The R:niL Finances. Some of the rebel new.epa-per-
are pricking the bubble of Memminger's finan
cial policy, the Montgomery (Ala ) Advertiser being
foremost amoog them. It pronounces the condition
of trie Confederate finances a desperate beyond ex
pression, and puts the case thus :

deserate condition of our finances under Memuiing

South of reven hundred thousand dollars taxable
wealth. This dreadful tribute we are now paying
for every dollar ei pen le i in Europe for necessary
foreign supplies, and the domestic products of the
country, acting in sympathy with this depreciation
of currency, are Mold to tbe Goverumeut at equally
indited prices. And thus, with a smaller civil and
military establishment than the North, and with a
more economical administration of a Hairs, the ex
penses of ibe Confederate Government are nearly
double those of the United States. However we may
deceive ourselves, we cannot deceive Ihe world in
regard to these facts. The continuance of the war
for two or three years longer will create a public debt
the interest of which cannot be paid even at four per
The Montgomery editor further complains that
while the Southern States are bleeding at this fearful
rate at hoim and broad, the manufactures of New
England never carr'ed on a more lucrative trade
witti the South than they are now doing, and winds
up with the sage remark : "Tue worst use to which
you can put a bale of cotton is to brn it.
Rebel Pirates asd their Uawsom Bonds."
Some of the London journals, in the Chipping iuterest,
have of late been earnestly discus-ing the effect of
the ransom bonds exacted by the Confederate piiva
teers for vessels captured under -:ie Federal flag.
The following is from the Shipping Gazette, a
respectable authority in such matters :
Kinsom bonds are, according jo British law,
illegal, and no person claimiug ou ficeo such bonds
would have a locus standi in our: courts. In the
event, therefore, of such a boud beiijg given, aud the
ainouot recovered in America, it isiquite clear that
tbe party satisfying the bond that) is, the owner of
the ship could uot prosecute a cly.m in respect to
such a bond iu this country again- the freight aud
cargo. Tbe American law recognises ransom bonds,
and tbe Frencu law regards any consideration given
to relieve our ransom ships and oods as coming
under tbe head el General Average- The owner,
thereiore, of the Federal ship, .o had satisfied
the bond given by his captain ; a Confederate
cruiser, might regard tbe paymei us constituting
an indefeasible ground of Genenc Average, and
proceed to establish his claim therein. Tbe law of
Geueral Avetage is founded upon a purely equitable
principle namely, that wherever S acrifice is made
in the course of a voyage, for tbe btefit of ship and
cargo, ail parties to the venture sh - i contribute pro
rati. Now, a bond given to prote the destruction
f a ship and cargo, uher. pail, constitutes utiqtu-s-tK'iiioiy
such a ('ici itice, aud. therefore, i good
ground of General Average. It does not aJect the
p. iucipie. which underlies the law i f General Av
erage, that there is difficulty in tendering all tne
pirtit-s to the venture liable to contribute. We
u-t-oiiiie that the honorable understanding, without
which co'iimerce could nut be carried on amongst tbe
cuinuiuniiies of civilized States, would, iu such a
case, Mif-pij the want of legal obligation, and that
the owners and underwriters iu t:iis . ountry, of a
cargo which ha-le-cipI destruction by means of a
ransom bond, woull not hesitate, upon being satisfi
ed that the bond bad been enforced, to admit the
payment as a General Average act, and to contribute
accordingly. To assume that this would not be so
vru! l be, we feel, to do a gratuitous discredit to tbe
reputation of our merchants and underwriters.
Ctses have arisen, since tbe outbre.k of the Ameri
can war, where thoe ransom bon s have protected
British interests, and have euabled valu-ible consign
ments to reach this country which would otherwise
iuftl'ibly have disappeared in th.2 waters of tbe
A Gkd Stort. In the Editor's Drawer of Har
per's JWogazine we find the following good story of
Illinois s.l iiers and an Illinois Co otiel tbe latter.
Col. Olesby. well known to fame :
Weil, one day his rife and drum majors went out
into the woods to practice a new tune. Attracted, no
doubt, by the melody, a fine fat shoal of musical
procliities came near alas! for the safety of his
bacon, too near for our bass drummer by a
change of base.' made a base attack on bis front;
whilst he lifer by a bold and rapid movement charged
him in the rear. 'Twas soon over; a few well direct
ed volleys of clubs and other persuasives were
applied, and piggy went dead again a martyr to
his love for muMC ! But how to get the deceased
pork iutocamp? That's what's the matter,' now.
After considerable discussion an iJea strikes the
drummer (uot so bard as to hurt him) : We will
put him in the drum. Just the thing, by hokey !
sai l tbe fifer. One head was taken out and the hog
stowed in. and our heroes started for their quarters,
carrying the drum between them. In the meantime
the regiment went out for a dress parade; and the
Colonel somewhat vexed at the absence of the prin
cipal musicians, no sooner t-aw the cents than, in a
voice of reprimand, he ordered theja to take their
5kce9 with the music. The drum bearers halted,
looked at each other, then at the Colonel but never
Biid a word. The Colonel repeated his order in a
ftjle eo emphatic that it couldn't be misunderstood.
Tne dealers in pork felt a crisis had arrived, and
that an explanation had become a military necessi
ty. So the drummer, going up close to the Colonel,
made him acquainted with the et&tus of affairs,
wioditig up with, We Mow, Colonei, to bring the
beat quarter over to your mess. Sick eh ?' thun
dered the Colonel; why did'nt yon nay so at first?
Go to your quarters? of course ! Battalion, right
face r The Colonel had fresh pork for supper."

British Intervention is China. The rebellion
in China has lasted for over fifteen years, during
which period probably millions of the uatives of that
populous country have perished by violence, as both
parties were in the habit of putting their prisoners
to death. Now England intervenes in behalf of the
Imperial Government, though tbe rebels there have
shown more ability to maintain themselves than the
Confederate Government of tbe South. It is hardly
possible, theretore. that England will stultify herself
by an acknowledgment, for the present at least, of
tbe independence of the South.
How tuet do Pcfp in Paris ! The Paris cor-
i respondent of the New York Herat J, writing on 15th
May, says :
Dr. J. Marion Sims, of New York, is creating a
tremendous excitement in certain high circles in
Paris Dr. Sims is the origiuator of a bold but sim
ple, and, an be alleges, perfectly safe and effectual,
turgical operation, by which mother nature rnay be
aided in the fulfilment of the divine command given
to Adam and Eve, and has already performed it
upon several titled ladies in Paris who were uuxious
to give their husbands pledges of their affections.
The matter reaehing the ears of the first lady in
tbe land," whose anxiety to iocreae the probabili
ties of the continuance of the Napoleon c dynasty is
well known. TLe Emperor heut tor Dr. Sims, who
explained to him the operation, and. it appearing
satisfactory to her M.ijesty, she has consented to have
it performed. It would have beeu done this week but
was postponed on account of a slight indisposition of
tbe Empress, no J it will now, I understand, be dene
next week. If it prove as etfectual n it already has
in other cases, you may not be surj-ristd to bear be
fore Ion j th-it Eugenie, like the Princess of Wales,
has discontinued taking horseback exercise," and
that Dr. Sims, leides tcketin? a splendid fee, wears
the decoration of the Legion of Honor. It is not a
little creditable to our surgical skill as a nation that
both the Emperor's dentist. Dr. Thomas W. -Evans,
and now his most Confidential surgical ndvisei and
operator. Dr. Sims, are from our country.
How TiiLT Vote in France A correspondent of
the Loudon Examiner visited the voting polls in
Paris during tbe recent elections, and reports th t
nothing can be more orderly and tranquil than the
proceedings." He gives an interes-ting description
of tho manner in which the details of a French elec
tion are conducted :
A police officer is stationed at the entrance of the
ball of voting, who merely inquires whether you are
an elector. As a stranger, I was invited by the Mayor,
with my companion, to witness what was going on.
The Mayor presided over the table, on which was
placed the ballot box. Every elector had at the door
separate tickets given him, ou which were printed
the names of the candidates. Each ticket resembled
the others, so that when folded it was utterly impos
sible to distinguish the name of the person voted for.
The elector presented a document printed ou green
paper, containing his name, quality, place of abode
and certificate of registration. The name having
been called our, the scrutineers, of whom there were
four, examined the electoral lists; and on ascertain
ing that the name was found there, the elector deliv
ered his folded ticket to the President, by whom it
was dropped into the box. Voting always takes
place ou a Sunday, for the convenience of tbe labor
ing classes, and on the following Monday. If auy
question of identity arise, two known inhabitants of
the district are allowed to identify the individual who
comes forward to vote. At four o'clock tbe ballot
box is sealed; that of yesterday was courteously put
into our hands. We found that the great proportion
of electors vote on the second day, as au additional
security against any tampering with the ballot box.
There were at no time more than four or five electors
in the room, and uo one was detained a minute after
bis certificate of registration was fouud to agree with
the electoral lists.
A French Address on the American War. One
of the most intersting documents which tbe war has j
called forth in Europe is the followiug letter, which j
the Protestant clergy of France have recently address
ed to Euglaud :
Paris. March 12, 1863.
Honored and Beloved Brethren in the Lord : It is
the glory of England to have given to tbe world the
example of abolishing first tbe slave trade and then
slavery. It is her glory to have contiuued for tbe j
last sixty years the work of suppressing uni.ersally
the slave trade and slavery, at the cost, it is said, of
fifty millions of pounds sterling; and it is uuder God !
chiefly to her religious meu, her Clarksons, her Wil- j
bcrforces, her Buxtotis, to her missionary societies, j
that England owes this glory, Will not the sons and
succesrs of tle.-e great Christians complete their '
Woik by urging their country to declare itself openly
for ihe holy cause of the liberation of the slaves in ;
the terrible struggle which is at present couvulsing 1
the United Slates of America ?
No more revolting spectacle has ever been before '
the civilized world than a Confederacy, consisting !
mainly of Protestants, forming itself aud demanding
independence in the nineteenth century of tbe Chris
tian era, with a professed design of maintaining and
propagating slavery ; a Cotitederacy which lays down
ns the corner stone of its Constitution the system of .
slavery as it exists at present in the Southern
States a system which may be defined briefly as the
right to treat men like cattie. and to commit adultery
and murder with impuuity. Setting aside all politi
cal considerations, can any Christiau heart fail to be
stirred to indignation at bearing the chief of that
Confederacy answering a decree of emancipation by
an implied threat of extermination ?
The triumph of such a cause would put back the
progress of Christian civilization and of humanity a
whole century. It would make angels weep in
heaven and demons rejoice in bell. It would euable
tbe friends of the slave trade aud of slavery in all
lands to hold up their heads, ever ready as they are
to reappear at the first signal, in Asia, in Africa,
and even in the great cities of Europe. It would
give a fatal blow to tbe work of Evangelical Missions.
and what a frightful responsibility would rest on the i
Church which should remain the silent spectator of
such a triumph !
If there is a peaceable means of hastening the end '
of the war, of rendering its issue such as is desired by
all tbe friends of humanity, ought not the sincere j
Christians of Europe to give to tbe cau e of emancipa-
tion a powerlul testimony, which would leave to those !
who fight tor the right of oppressing the slaves no
hope of ever seeing those Christians give them the
band of fellowship ? !
Ministers aud pastors of all tbe evangelical denoni- j
iuations of England, Scotland and Ireland, it is here
we need your assistance lake the lead, and let us :
call forth a great aud powerful manifestation of sym- '
pat by for tbe colored race, so long oppressed and j
debased by Christiau nations. Let us strengthen '
and encourage those who wish to abolish slavery, at
the same time disposing them to listen to our sugges- .
tions. It is in free England that such manifestations
cn be powerful. What may we not hope for if
throughout Great Britain the voice of the ministers
of the crucified Savior, and iu France our voices i
echoing theirs, pray aud plead that soon there may
no longer be in tbe United States a colored man that
is not free and equal with tbe whites. i
May God grant it, and may His blessing rest alike j
on Great Britain aud the Uuited S;ates in Christ, j
the true liberator. j

A Valparaiso correspondent of the New York Com
mercial Adrertiser says that a Spanish war steamer
named the Caradouga, had arrived there, bringing
two men said to have been picked up from an island
near Cape Horn, where they bad been living, after
shipwreck, twenty-three years.
The London Times alluding to the intercepted
correspondence between the rebel government and
Mason, makes an unwilling admission, thas: " The
first thing the documents prove beyond any doubt is
that the Northern blockade, if not quite perfect is
very effective. The correspon Jence even of the
Southern government with its agent9 abroad is car
ried on with the greatest difficulty, though duplicates
of the dispatches are forwarded. Their arrival on
either side is a matter of chance."
Prosperity and its Danger?. There is no more
perilous ordeal through which a man can pass no
greater curse which can be imposed upon him as he
is at present constituted than that of being con
demned to walk his life long in the sunlight of
unshadowed prosperity. His eyes ache with that
too untempered brilliance he is apt to be smitten
with a moral coup de soldi. Bat it as little follows
that no sunshine is good for us. He who made us
and tutors us, alone knows what is the exact meas
ure of light aod shade, sun and cloud, storm and
calm, frost and beat, which will best tend to mature
those flowers which are the object of his celestial
husbandry, and which when transplanted into the
paradise of God, will bloom there forever in ama
ranthine loveliness Nor can it be without presump
tion that we essay to interfere with these processes;
our highest wisdom is to fall in with them. .V. I.
When the men of the Fifty-fourth (colored) regi
ment of Massachusetts received their bounty of SoO,
408 out of 966 men composing the regiment, signe I
their name iu good an l clear hand. Toe intelligence
or at least the education of the Northern colored men
would thus appear to be very much superior to the
whites of the South, inasmuch as a very large major
ity of the rebels taken prisoners by our troops are
unable to write their names.
The Syracuse Journal tells a good story as follows :
The New York mail train on the direct road, Sunday
morning, when just this side of Savannah, struck a
man who was sitting on one of the rails, knocking
him some feet into the ditch at the side of the track.
The man was not seen by the engineer iu time to
stop the locomotive before reaching him. The train
was stopped and backed up, in the expectation of
finding tbe man dead. Great was the surprise of all
who knew of the occurrence, to find the man stand
ing by the side of the track, having scrambled out of
the gutter and sustained no harm besides torn and
soiled clothing; and he cried out : " Go on with
your cars. I ain't hurt !" It cannot be denied that
whikey has preservative qualities.
Thk Nonsense of Heraldry. At the funeral
service performed in the tnshicnnble church of St.
Clotbilde, at Paris, for the soul of the Duke de Levis.
lately deceased, many people were puzzled to know
what could be the meaning of the words inscribed
ucon the canfalque, Second Christian of France."
Tne explanation is that when Clovis was converted,
the first noble who offered himself to be baptised was
the ancestor of the Montmorencys, and the second
ancestor of the Duke de Levis. The pedigree of the
Count de Cbambord's late right-bund man goes back,
however, to a much earlier date iu history. Tbe
French Levises trace their descent from a first cousin
of the Virgin Mary. In the ancestral hall of the
Dukes of Levis, is an antique picture representing
an interview between the founder of the family and
his relation, the wile of Joseph the carpenter. The
parent of the house of Levis is represented in the act
of taking off his hat, and a scroll issuing from his
mouth bears the words bon jow, ma coitsine, (good
day, cousin). The Virgin replies con vrez tons, won
const ne (put on your hat, cousin). What " boast of
heraldry" can beat this ?
A good anecdote is related of a Newfoundland dog,
owned in Montreal. Among other thiugs the dog
has been taught to take a basket and go to the mar
ket for meat. This duty he performed for some
time, when the butcher presented his bill for settle
ment, and, to the astonishment of the owner, it
was double the account he had kept. The bill
was paid, but the dog was suspected and watched;
and one day it was found that after doing tbe regu
lar marketing, he took the basket and did a little on
his own account, eating the proceeds on his way
home, and on his arrival returning tbe basket to its
proper place. To put a stop to this, the butcher
was instructed to give meat only when a piece of
paper was found in the ba.-ket. Tbe dog tried the
marketing on his own account several times, but
failed to get anything; and finally, as though he had
turned the matter over in his min i, observing how
it was done, be one day went in and tore off a piece
of newspaper, placed it in the basket, aud obtained
the hard-earned dinner. If the whole of this is true,
it shows a refiectiveness on the part of the dog not
often seeu among auiuials, and stamps him us one of
tbe most sagacious of his kind.
English and French Seamen. Nine or ten thou
sand French seimen having been constantly under
my review for eo long a period, it may be expected
that I should s y a tew words respecting their condi
tion. They are wiry, active, and easily amenable
both to instruction aud discipline; but they are a less
muscular, and certaiuly a smaller race than the sea
men of the British Islands, and are not so cleanly
either in their persous or their dress. I do not now
speak of their appearance at muster ou Sundays or
holidays, but when in their ordinary working dress,
both on board and in the boats. Ou this particular
head, I have been surprised that more pains has not
been taken, with a view to improvement; for the
ships are beautifully o!ean in every part, and the
boats arc perfection. The costume of the French
sailor is au exact copy of ours in every respect, but
they cannot successfully imitate the style of the hat,
tbe cut ot the troupers, or the gait of the real sea
man. They are not volunteers, but are drawn by
ballot, and are obliged to serve for seven years, after
which period they are free, and can demand their
discharge. Very few of these conscripts voluntarily
remain, and when their time of service has expired
on a distant station, this regulation causes great em
barrnssinent to the captain and officers. Generally
speak ng. they dislike the service, and consequently
rarely make the Imperial navy their profession from
choice. It is strange to observe the difference, when
evening has set in, between the habits of the seamen
of the two nations. In the English ships the fiorts
are left open, each mess is lighted up, singing is
heard, and dancing and merriment go forward till
the time for piping down at the hour of half past 9.
In the French ships all is gloomy darkness; the ports
are all closed, not a lantern is visible, nor is the
sound of amusement heard. Their day's work is
over, the air of n;gbt is supposed to be deleterious,
and they rest from their labor. Yet the reason of
this diilerence is obvious; the lower deck of the
Englih ship of war is the home of the seaman; the
lower deck of the French ship-of the line is at the
best a temporary barracks. The former has volun
tarily choseu the Royal Navy as a profession for life,
the latter is earnestly looking forward to the day of
his release. . M. S. " Hanjubal," at 1'alermo
