Nt.rTRAI. It IUII I'M AKI Ikl'TII'S.
Anciently, even among the most civilized
nation, the right to remain at peace while
Other States wero at war was. denied. The
proverb that "those who are not for us are
gainst us," was then recognized and Insisted
Opon in all its torce; and the privilege of neu
trality Is comparatively modern In its origin,
fmd must be ascribed to the wiser views of
Justice and policy which have tprung up and
been developed since the Christian er;u The
right to stand neuter iu a quarrel between two
or more independent States is now Ilrraly
established; but that rlrtit. like all other
rights, carries with it its correlative duties.
II' a Government claims the liberty oftaking
no part in our iuteruatiouil coutllet, it is
bound to maintain, iu ull respects, an ubsnlute
Impartiality between the bclligereuts. That is
Uie condition on which alone it can be allowed
to enjoy exemption from embroilment iu the
Want that disturb the peace of its ucilibjrs
jmd Iriends. Tho most approved critics on
public law declare that the rights of neu'rality
are connected with correspondent duties, anil
that among them Ls that of impartiality be
tween the contending parties, "i'he neutral,''
Bay Vattei. aud Uynkk.nsh imk, "is the
Common friend of both belligerents, nod con
sequently Is not at liberty to tivor either to tho
prejudice of the other." They alio declare
that a neutral his noiliin,' tj do ivil'i t! i j jus
tice or injustice of the war; It is not lor him
to sit as judgo butweeu his friends, wiio are at
War with each oilier, and to giaut or reiime
more or less to tho one or the oiher, as he
thinks tLat their cause U imr or Is) jusi or
This Is the law as respects tin; ri'its and
Obligations percuiiiiug ;o the coadition oi per
fect neutrality, as contradistinguished from
imperfect neutrality, which is modiuVl by
special compact. Now it occurs to us that
Great Britain, since our civil war began, has
Dot been dealing quite- fairly and bonorabl
with the duties she owes as a neutral and 111 t
rights of the United States as a belligerent.
It Is quite true that the Queen of England, at
an early period of our unhappy domestic trou
bles, Issued a proclamation asserting her inten
tion to observe a perfect neutrality in tin
Contest, and requiring all her subjects, on
pain of forfeiting their claims to tho protec
tion of their Government, to abstain from any
interference in the strife.
- But It U equally true that the proclamation
Of Her Majesty has been grossly and persist
ently violated by her subjects ever sluce it
Was published; and that British murchanU
fend British ships have been and are still
notoriously engaged In running the blockade
tt the Rebel porta, said furalahlng th insur
gent with most (aawrud aid In tueir unjust

, . engaged Ifl the iervlei of the Ittballioa Ueu
Ullowwd to be reflUed In British waters, for
Uf better iroocutlon of their dyiadations
on the commerce of this antlon, but others
have been actually built, furniahrd, and
cleared from British ports to pursue the same
All Ihee facts have been carefully nited by
our people, and duly complained of by their
representatives at Washington; and yet the
work of aiding and abetting the Rebellion by
British subjects still goes on, without that
eirectuiil prevention of it which It Is but
reasonable to believe tho British authorities
rmild, if they would, enforce. Yet in "pile of
her glaring dereliction In this moit grave
matter, the English Government nlleets to ha
a neutral in our civil war, and claim the
benefits of that pretension. This double
di Ming ls not only not right, not h m,'t'f
not legal, but It is highly dis,;r.eefu '
to the Government which permits it, and
thcicloro piactieally and virtually sanctions it.
One of our own statesmen, and perhaps the
most illustrious of them nil In point of Intel

This ls a hound exposition of public law on
the subject in question, and it has the positive
sr.i.ction of all respectable publicists, from
Giiotilb to Viik ati n. Yet England, who
plumes herself ,er Judicial learning,
and her strict retard fur tho law which
governs tho relations and Intercourse of
nations, suffers her own subjects to violate,
in the most open and nudaelous manner, the
plain duties ol neutrality which are Imposed
by tho public code. Nor does her Secretary
of Foreign Affairs hesitate to avow, in an
official letter, the seiii-recognltion which his
Goveruineut has given, aud yet gives, to tho
Hebel States of the South, as independent
sovereignllrs, under the litluof the "so-called
Confederate States of America." We quote

'J'he desputch of the Secretary of War states
tlu:t a call and draft for three hundred tliou
sixd troops, to make up the detlcieucy oeca
bioned by credits on tho last call, have bseu
ordered by the Presldeul. This is necessary.
This great call lo the people Is absolutely
essential, and is oue which must be responded
to. Let auy ouo reflect upon the history of
the past four years, aud picture to himself all
that has been done during that Interim in the
service of the Union. Let hiia remember tho
victories that have been won, the buttles that
bavu been fought, the manifestations of rebel
lion that have been crushed, the many
inM.mces of vslor anil endurance that have
been exhibited. Let. hloi recall the seens of
blood frill! which coiiseqysnces of bue!U
have bcn evoked. All the blood that has
been spilled, ull the ngony that has been
endiireil, ail the anguish that has been pa
tiently supported, all tlie unutterable losses
that hae been incurred, if, iu a certain snuse,
they are irreparable, are .still to be palliated
and ameliorated by cur being yet men true to
t uiselves t the future. We have done great
things. Let us do still greater.
Tho cotnilry Las another call for troops,
j'oii-e hundred thousand more are wauled.
We have jiivcn many thousands already, aud
wc are called upon to give more. We all wish
tlie war over, lio who loves tho Union most
will love it none the less for cherishing this
idea. Tho prosperity which onco wrapped
the whole nation In its genial sunshine has
long ago departed. True, we speak of the
prosperity of the present; but wo speak of it
iu comparative terms. When we take into
consideration all we have done, the immense
results which wo have achieved, and compare
them with the cxhaustless resources yet re
maining to us, we may well be amazed at the
unprecedented prestige which yet attaches
itself to our name. But the prosperity we now
enjoy is an untoward and feverish ono. Xt
cannot lust forever. The equable tempera
ment of peace must bo restored. The heart
of the natioa must learn again to beat
calmly and healthfully. Our prosperity must
be rendered at solid and lasting as it is bril
liant and glittering. The generations which
are to succeed us must be begotten under such
auspices that they will rise up and call us
blessed. This generation must be reverted
to as the ltevolutiomiry heroes are. We must
end the war, .

the struggle, and that in by fighting it out.

satisfy at once conscience anil pilde. Wo have
no occasion to use the meretricious argument,
that having gone so far, It is too late to return.
Of such fallacy wo ran afford to allow the
South a monoKly. They can engross it as
much tut they onco did the supply of cotton.
We havo no rnusn to exclaim, with Mac
beth, that "returning were as tedious as ro
o'er." Our conscience needs no soothing, our
pride no satisfying. We, tho men of tne Unlom
am in the right now, as wo have been since
the commencement. The f'ict that wc aro
fighting for the vindication of a sublime prin
ciple never am grow so trite as to pass Into a
stale proverb. The Union is our Individual
no bus than our national life. It enters Into
our religion. Its preservation has, since child
hood, funned the theme of a portion of our
prayers. The union of all the elements of our
liitliMdual natures has seemed no less neces
sary mid Inevitable to us than the Union of
the States lu which we have been born. The
w ar is a war for the Union, nnd peace, when It
idiiill come, phull be a peace for the Union,
ti Drafts nre not popular. They are even less
popular than faxes. Men must be had, how
ever. They are more Imperative than money.
I.e; those who are willing to give fteely of
their money, recollect if is not money, but
men that are wanted. The chimerical anil un-d-'covcralile
ph'losopher's stone, which turn 'd
every thing to gold, is less au object to ba
dei.ired now, than some moral conviction that
shall transform cvury able-bodied in in into a
volunteer. One fuels, however, In regarding the
masons in favor of the Union service that argu
ment and exhortation are not the species of In
ducement needed. The cause Is so pure nnd ex
alted, the consequences to lie secured are so
beneficent and general, and the numbers of
(hose who have fallen on our side have already
Mi sanctified the struggle, tb.it it should seem
no appeal to nny right -minded, rlght-lbiding
man Is necessary. A soldier's life at best is a
bard one, but there is a fate harder stl'l. It is
that of the man who continually drinks In
blessings from a Government which hn is too
supine, or cownrdly.orltixurloiis to rare about
defeud'ng. With Siiliiman at Savannah, and
Chant lielore Uichmond, we hope to over
throw rebellion w hilst it is capp'ngthe climax.
To end the struggle at. once and for over, a
iliuft. must be resorted to onco more. The
response will help to end It.

(NlllS ON AA!I X It tllkERi)
The National IIoue of Keprcsentatives
ycsterdiij passed, by a vote of sixty-eight to
fifty-six, the following resolution:
" Jlaolntl, TBat Congress has a c nstltutiona
rif-httoan authoritative voi ,c in declaring and
pit scribing the foreign policy of (he United
Mutes, as cll in the recognition of new
powers as lu other matters; aud it is the constito
tiot.nl duly of tiie I'residmt to reqiect Hint policy,
rot less in diplomatic relations tb.tn in the use
ol the national tones when authorized by law,
siid the ptoprii ty of any declaration of foreign
policy by Congress is sufficiently proved by the
tote which pronounces it, and such prop icillin
while 1'iiKliiig undetermined, is not u tit topic for
diplomatic explanations with any foreign power."
Tlie Intrinsic truth of such a declaration
is not denied even by its opponents, but
It. a tlie application which both the
people of our country nnd tho monurehs
of France und England will make to such un
enunciation of principle at the present time,
Vtlilcb the more cautious members of our
National Congress opposed by both voice and
vote. After a careful analysis of tho manner
by which tho resolution was passed, we Und
that the a ie consisted of every Democratic
member of the House, together with the moro
radical wing of the Bepublican party. Every
I it mocrut voted for Its adoption, with tho ex
ception ot Bailicv, of renusylvunlu, and
V i: A. ma Ms, of Kentucky, both elected on a war
pliillbim; while those who so strenuously
opposed its passage were tlie Union member.St
thrve who fought and conquered under the
I'rcsldcnt last November, and who will s!ill
stand iiy him, both ns regards hisdoinestlc and
foreign policy. Th delegation from the Key
stone State were equally divided; twenty
members voted. The I'nionlsts voting for the
resolution were Moowikai., Stkvkvs nud
Wili.ia.mm, the most radicil of the delega
tion ; the remainder of the Union ni"u vol hI
against it. If the whole Pennsylvania dele
gation iiad but voted against It, the resolution
w uld have been defeated by a large m.-ijoritv.
We cannot but consider the utterance of
such u declerutioil by Congress, at the present
time, as premature. Harmony Is essential lit
our national council:' at lue present time.
When our amies are fighting und winning
glorious laurels on the Ucld,lhe day-star of hope
bus risen, and men think that they arc com
mencing to see the beginning of the end ; now
at this moment of returning duwn is no timo
for the friends of the Union and fieodoin, who
nre in power, to commence dissenting and
bickering; no time for the Union meu to lend
, l.eir u'ul towards enabling the opposition to
succeed iu tuirying the National Congress
iigaiust the National Executive. Every vote
polled Jur the resolution was a vote given to
uid the Democratic party. We arc at a loss
to understand how these members, who havo
done such good serv ice iu tho cause of free
dom so lately, could join their voices with
their late opponents In opposition to tho very
man for whom they had so lately spoken.
A lcglsattor is not to be Influenced by his
private piques. Before dt positing bis vote
he must weigh well the effect it will have, he
mcst net as though the fate of the wholf nation
depended upon his individual action ; and when
the reiOiiibliity has been fully appreciated
by him, then not a vote will be cost which is
Influenced only by Indignation or passion.
Do those members who fuvorcd the resolution
think that our country Is at thepicaent time in
condition to enter Into a war w ith great
Jfoii'ljj-u Jow u)iU CrcatBrltulnorFrajice, ? Or
do they merely mean this little episode In legis
lation la Intended to Insult the President, or to
make a fling at the Secretary of State f Tho
principal cause which appears to have caused
the same gentlemen who on Thursday tabled
by a vote of sixty-nine to sixty-thiee tho same
resolution which yesterday they adoptod by
sixtj-elgbt lo flUy-six, was thut Hknky Win
tmi Davim and Sami:kl " Sunhk.t" Cox
threatened to resign from the Committee on
Foreign Affairs. The duty ol the hour
demanded that Congress should sti d fast
to their resolution to defeat all such declara
tions wliii It would lie likely to embroil as in a
war with any ft'lphty foreign power. The
safety of our national life, our national exist
ence, nnd future p-oss rity, alike demand that
the path of cntion and eoneili ition Is the
proper one for the Government to walk in
until this hour of danger internal d inner ls
past. Wo are no advocates of the system of
yielding to foieign Influence, of bending the
knee to foreign power; but when our own
nterest demands that wo should put on a sem
blance of conciliation, we are politic enough
to bow to expediency, ami for the present, at
least, let the Insult pass unnoticed. The future
is a long day; and "after some time be past,"
we w ill be in a position to recompense with
Interest Great Britain for ull the numerous In
sults which necessity compels us to submit f a
to-day, It Is not national degeneracy that
keeps us silent ; It Is national wisdom. Let tin
friends of despotism and slavery talk of cow
ardice, and quote :
' Tlmt tlie jinnle of the puinra onthos tho hurt

Ai d tin nation', do lint murmur, snarling at e tch
Wc can bear tlieir insults for the present'
but when the chain which ut present keeps us
bound is broken, then will be the proper time
to rise In the might and dignity of our great
ness, and lie ruvonged upon our foes. Tl'cn
will be the proper timo for Congress to pass
resolutions not only enunciating the right to
pursue mid rapture land-pirates and mur
derers, but also to declare that the voice of
the nation und of Justice declares thut war
nloiie din wipe out the insults we have en
dured, find, appealing to the God of Ba' ties,
go into fhc fight and win honor, glory, and
When that day arrives we hopo to see our
Democratic opponents yotin as they do to
day. Now such an action is premature and
rush then it will be according to the dictates
of duty, popular spirit, nnd national honor;
nnd wc will expect to see that party which
supi oris such it course to-day support it then,
Inking its place In the foremost front of
battle, and redeem the pledge which they yes
terday made to tilt; country, by favoring the
passage of Mr. Daviw' resolution.

llni.t KiMiiiititc grows economical. Davis
ndvi.-es him to this step. Powder and ball are
becoming scarce in tho "so-called Confederate
Stales," as Earl Kuhmlli, Is pleased to style
tlicm. Hence the ex-Vice-President, ex
United Suites Senator.iind present Confederate
idajor-Goncral Biikckinuiiiiik is instructed
to order his men not lo waste this same powder
nnd ball. It Is of "vital importance" to be
saving in this respect. Small arms uro to be
husbanded as well us ammunition and lead.
During battle the "Greyhacks" are to ransack
dead Greyhacks and defunct Yankees for the
invuluublc articles cartridges and percussion
taps. All muskets with charges in barrels
must have those charges drawn instead of
llrlng them into the air, and In case this is too
tedious, they must be discharged into boxes
of sand or dirt, so that tho bullets may bo
picked out aud turned over to the Ordinance
Verily, DAVW Is coming to the pinch;
verily, the "so-called Confederate States" aro
failing in the "wonderful resources" which
fliey claimed for their enterprising soc.tion of
the country. They cannot even manufacture
powder und ball suflleient to fight their bat
tles ; and wltho'it powder and ball how aro
they to maintain tho war? Had they not
better try that "cold steel" of which they mttdo
mi eh an ado at the first? or lias "Yankee
steel" taken thut idea out of their heads?
Economize, by all means, Mr. Da vis; but
your economy, whether political or domestic,
will not save you. Shoot your guns into

- To-day tlio streets have presented a brilliant
panorama of the scuson of Jubilee. The ex
hilarating sunshine and the pure atmosphere
w hich have enwrapped the thoroughfares have
in en enjoyed by curious crowds, most of
whom probably were animated by the one
purpose of purchasing Christmas gifts. Tho
palaces of art which adorn Chesuut street
were never more richly embellished with
everything beautiful and rare. Money never
stemed moro plentiful, aud probably never
flowed with greater rapidity from pocket to
pocket, from portemonnaii! to till. The jubilee
season lias commenced to-day, aud the Lord
t i' Mi.Tii'e will teigu supremo until the holi
!i :js are over.

Bcan-nt Parents, Ifiothuii and Sisters, Friends
and Acquaintances: With trembling hand aud
sorrowful heart I take up the pen to give you
further particulars of my misfortune, which, in
consequence of my disobedience towards you,
dearest parents, 1ms followed me, and hits ititi
mtely shortened the days of my life. 1 now plainly

In tl.c Ilihle- Mint whosoever does not honor his
futher and mother will be followed by an early

the happy boy, animutes youth with its limine

man, for if he closes his weary career at the

this account 1 alto hope that you will forgive wo
with all your heart.

that I am overtaken by au unexpocteU death,
which nevertheless 1 do not deserve, but God
oftentimes punishes man by judgments which
he does not deserve, aud that ls now the case

deeds towards you, my dearest parents; tor had
I listened to you and not proceeded to England
this misfortune would not huve befallen me;

it came aliout. I wjs at work with a person

The first of the iron chid monitors ordered In
this city, was successfully launched at twenty
minutes of '1 o'clock yesterday aflornuno, from
ti e sbipyi.rd of Messrs. Nnowden & Mason, sjuth
on! of the Monongubcla biblge. An immense
eiowd was (inhered at every eligible place a!oni
the river on both sides, aud the hriJ'oan l the
clicks of the steamers in port were black with
anxious spectators. The Munaiuni has been
ready to take hcroicmint for some tint", the
tic lay being mainly a.lribul.tble to un inJc.uato
stugo of wi ter.
Iht-re was a good stage yesterday, the river
being well up the baiiss, anil reached within a
tew yards of tlie tremeuiloiis structure of iron,
whose weight would crush a unis-ivo column of
grin, lie, but which now l!oa s like a chip on the
bosom of the MorionciiheU. Much itclay has
oi em led in her const ruction, owing to the original
plans, some linden d imp. raiive hy tlio defects
which led to the lo-s ot the original Monitor, aud
many others tl-til have been suggested during
the shoil but eventful histury ot this class of
TUB I.Al NClt.
At the hour above named, everything being in
readiness, the blocks under the ways wore speedi
ly and ciiicfully rtiuoved. and just as the work
men were ahout to take away the last li' i.-k, the
cul lcs which tic lil the ves-el pm ted and she slowly
ant ini.je.-tn ally , amid tliccheers of the assem
bled thousand-, started for the river, increasing
ber speed with mathematical precision until she
itucbed the river. When the stern struck
the water, 4-as partially submerged, tho
water rencuing lo ninitisuips on the decks.
'When fully In, the vessel trimmed herself gayly
and runout into the middle of the river, when
M e ti ok a downward course for the foot of
Liberty street, where she was anchored and will
lie moored until completed tor sea. As the noble
vcnel touched the water, Mi s Charlotte E. Kirk,
dnughttr of Mr. J. (S. Kirk, the accomplished
I. mining manager, broke a Louie of wine over the
bow, to.d christened ber Munaiunlc, Notwith
standing the large comber of people present, and
the (.'lent interest mpiiifested by all to bene.tr
the vtssel when launched, there was not tho
liEScnil'TION- OP TUE " MANAVl'NK."
Our rcporlcr was early on the ground, and while
there took occasion to examiuu the vessel very
liniiUtely, which resulted In tbo linn conviction
thut no better-built craft was ever sot ulluat, it
being, In bis judgment, unexceptionable iu p out
of model, material, and work m unship. It will
be recollected that the Mamnjunk is an iron clad
w ar steamer of the monitor class, and only ex
celled in size and capacity by those naval oiou
stcis, the IHiinlor and Puritan, her goucral
dimensions being iu length, two hundred and
twenty-five fiet; breadth of beam, forty-three
feet nine inches; depth of hold, thirteen feet six
Inches, drawing twelve feet of water, and pro
pelled by two lii lesson's patent lever engines of
one thousand horse power, with independent
vacuum, and eight auxiliary engines, tier weight
w ill be about fourteen hundred tons, with a speed
1 1 twelve miles per hour. As tbo Munayunk Is
t'eslgntd lor a rain, and at the same tnucist )
cmry two 16-inch guns, something of her capa
city may be readily Inferred.
can viTTsnrao nrii.i) iiiom-clads ?
ft This vestel being the litst ever built in this city
tit-signed for ocean service, deserves espouiul
notice, as a matter of no small moment depends
upon its success, and that is whether iron vessols
ot gieut tonnage can be built hero right at the
door of cheap mateiiiil and labor, aud out of the
nach of foreign enemies. This fact established,
we will add another resource to our national
stiengtb, and placo ourselves on the record as a
city, fn ui which the Government cun be supplied
not only with Us lirst class war-vessels, but cm
buve them fully equipped with guns, aminunl ion,
and nuvul stoics, nil of Pittsburg inanufactuiv.
W e are gratified at the confidence placed by
Ibe Navy Iicpartmcnt In the ability ot Messrs.
Sni.wiltn it' Mmon, to do work of this cha
racter, which has been fully sustained, and that
ibis conimiii.ity will get tlie credit of furnishing
two war-vessels, equal, at least, in p iint of mate
rial and liiusli, to any built elsowle re. There Is
1.0 clas of machinery that presents such uieelia
ideal dilliculties as that of the monitor class.
Vet, the case with which thoe dilliculties have
I t en overcome reflects great credit upon the
skill end enterprise of Mr. J.S. Kirk, the General
Mau. ger, iissiattd by Mr. I). Mct'onnell.
The Mnnayviik is miitle from that justly cole
biatttl Migo brand of Iron, furnished by the
bouicof Ljon, Shorb & Co., of this city. No
pains nor txpcnsu have been spared on tne part
t the i omr.ict.'is to furni-h the Government
with a via e) alike creditable to themselves and
tli.s . t n.iiii uity, and we predict for her a future
1.1 r.ooidinary inter. V to the country. As every,
ihu g pi iiuinuiK to the lii.al completion of the
Mmw',t.hk is in perfect readiness, wo hope suan
to see her c nipli tt d and put into commission.

purpose, and representing also that lliggins, tho
drawer of the note, was a respectable manufac
