Ajeet^and there is such a thinfeas the right

little nettled that a stricter nentrality it

men of tHe most humane and..benevolent
disposition can take a purely Commercial
view of a war which: threatens with in
calculable mischief a good deal more than
a hundiedmillionsof the human race, even
supposing it to be confined to Russia and
Turkey. The concluding paragraph oft he
article reads: 'The Americans would do
'etler to look at borne than to look abroad.
Their population, if they are not in too
great hurry, will find abundance of em.
ployment in further developing the intern
al resources of their vast and fertile coun
try but ho'pes founded ou the necessities
of a European war can only encounter the
disappointment which, we must needs add
hey deserve." Now here is richness for
youthe very marrow of humanitarian
advice, cool, disinterested, and even un
kind. The Thunderer forgets by this time
that a few years ago there was a little un
pleasantness between two sections of this
country, when England was a neutral
power and did her very best to neutral
ize oufeefforts to put down secession for
some four years. Ships were' built and
equipped in her dockyords to prey upon
oo-thern commerce, and her own vessels
lB*ily employed in running the blockade,
aid furnishing ammunition and military
stores of every kind to the rebels. The
rhmes has no recollection of the mag
^tven to the precious
fugitives, Messrs. Mason and Slidell on
their arrival in London, nor of that spasm
of Briiish indignation when those gentle
men wree taken from an English steamer
aad the threat if they were not immedi
ately delivered up Her Royal Majesty's
iron clads would devestale the American
seaboard. During the entire war English
sympathies and pens were at the service
of the Southern element* with scarcely a
generous word for the underrated and
craven norlh. There were no prophetic
strains then, that war had an inevitable
iendenry to stimulate a gambling spirit al
ays productive of- commercial ruin and
political disaster, or, that British interests
would suffer immensely from the tem
porary inflation caused by foreign broils,
and the inevitable collapse of fictitious
prosperity, upon the declaration of peace.
It raised no wail of sorrowing speculation
about the thousands of Mauohester spin
dles kept running with cotton from block,
aded porta, nor of the lamentable losses in
store for their deluded manufacturers and
workmen who devoted their energies and
time in unprofitable enterprise. No hint
is given now of the supplies forwarded to
Turkey every day, no of the seven thous
and volunteers applying to the Turkish
minister of war for permission so serve
aider the banner of the Crescent, nor of
the officers of the army aud navy now at
the very, seat of war directing operations.
This is the average sample of J&nglaud's
Consistency. Her sympathy. is with poor
America, who is struggling with business
despondency, and may be tempted in its
usual enterprising spirit to make a little
profit out of the present European crisis.
However, all these friendly monitions may
be unheeded, for besides the unequivocal
friendship displayed by Russia towards
this country during tbe civil war, dc*crv.
