From the New York Timet
Tn nlt of all well-meant endeavors to con
ceal the fact, a profound gloom has settled upon
the public mind in regard to the conduct end
nrnsi'.t!j of the nendititr war. Tho groat mass
of tbe people are discouraged and disheartened,
... s, ,l. .1. t.nA 1 eVtil.
and tne reason oi jh, ibh iudv un v c jusv juu

exhaustless resources and thoir own indomitable
purpose to crush the robellion and preserve tho

out their treasures and blood liko water; and
they do not Bee tho fruits they wore promised for
I .r r i
such seennces. xney nave given tueir oonn
dence without stint to tho men who wielded tho
weapons they had placod "in their hands, and
they do not find that confidence justified by suc
cess. Tuey nave waited patieuuy weeic nrter

revolvinr seasons ot a whole year, lor victones

DniilBut suu uucisive, jjiuujiquu iudiu iiuui uny
to day ; and thourh every home mourns its dead
and every heart grieves for friends who will
return no more forever, the victories are yet
delayed, slid seem indeed farther oil than when
the war besran.
One after another, too, the men on whom they
bad built tneir hopes have uued them. They
know not whom to trust, or on whom thov can
rely, to carry tne nation lorward to that crown
ing triumph which they know is its right and its
due- Their faith in all their leaders lias been
sadly shaken. And until that faith can be re
stored by the achievement or tho promise ot soma
renewed success, we must struggle against pop
ular despondancy, and be prepared for tho vast
brood of" perils, real and imaginary, which move
m its train, i or a year now the nation has
leaned on SIcClollan and tho splendid army
which was placed at his disposal, and which ho
has moulded into the most formidable force ever
organized on thirf- continent. But it is idle to dis
guise tbe lact that their laitu ia mm nas been
shaken to Us foundations by his failure to ac
complish with ibat army a single one of the re
sults which it was adequato to achievo. It might
have taken Manassas, it ought to have beaten
the rebel army at Yorktown, its leader promised
with it to capture Richmond. It failed at every
point, and while it has been growing weaker,
the icrce it was nenung has been growing
stronger, day by day.
These thmgi shako and undermine the public
faith, on which must always rest tho public
strength. Nor does it avail in the least to shift
tae biame lor this state ot things irom one man
to another. Much may be done in this way to
relieve individuals from the responsibility of spe
cific acis but nothing to regain public confi
dence for the government which permits such
disasters to occur. It is alleged, ou behalf of
the 1'iesident and iiis advisers, that ilcClallun
has had the sole direction of his own movements
that he has selected his own line of operations
that he lias had men enough and time enough
to accomplish everything which ho was assigned
to do, and yet he has accomplished nothing.
On the -other hand, it is claimed for him that lie
has not been allowed ihe means promised for the
execution of his plans, but that at tho decisive
moment the forces have been withheld upon
which he had relied. When ho went to the Pen
insula for an advance upon Yorktown and
KicLmocd, an essential feature of his plan was,
that McDowell, with his corps, should follow
htm, ascend the York river, take Gloucester in
the rear, and turn the enemy's tlank at York
town ; after ho had landed at Fortress Monroe,
he learned that McDowell would not be portsit-
ted to move. Either he should net have been
sent on that errand, or he should have been al
lowed all tha means he deemed essential to its
performance. So at Richmond.
It is asserted on his behalf that ten days be
fore the final catastrophe, he informed the Presi
dent that his left wing was strong enough tor
an advance upon Richmond but that he had
not force to cover bis right and protect his lino
of communications, and begging that mon
enough might be sent at once to render that ser
vice. The President replied that McDowell
should come to him overland. McCIellan re
joined that he could not reach him thus in time
to be of any um that he would have rivers to
cross, bridges to build, long transportation
trains to bring up ; that he was ready for an ad
vance, and could move within a week if Mc
Dowell could be sent by water, and thus arrive
in time to guard tbe rear. To this it is alleged
the President made no reply, until five or six
days after, when he informed McCIellan that
15,000 men had just been sent from Richmond
to reinforce Jackson, and that this was equiva
lent to sending him reinforcements to the same
amount. These 15,000 did join Jackson, and
thus reinforced, Jackson, with 55,000 men, fell
upon our right wing, drove it back, forced it
across the Citrckakotniny, and compelled our
left wiog also to retreat to save itself from utter
destruction. If McCIellan was required to take
Richmond, it is said on his behalf he should not.
thus have been thwarted at the very moment
when he was ready to march.
All this may cr may not be valid and conclu
sive in defense of Gen. McCIellan. But it is
conclusive of incapacity somewhere for tho con
duct of the war, in which the honor and tho life
of the nation are involved. If that incapacity
k with McCIellan, why is he not replaced by
another man 1 If it is not with him, where is it
and what ground has tho country for hoping
that a remedy can be applied at all 1
For the last ten days it cannot bo denied that
the public has been inclined to take tbe gloomi
est view of affairs, and to despair of better coun
cils, and a" more vigorous and successful con
duct of the war. Not that the public mind has
lost its elasticity, or the popular heart anything
of its wostcd courage. Let the government
take but a single step toward reforming these
felt and acknowledged evils, and the people will
respond with fresh enthusiasm and renewed
spirit. But when they hear from one side fierco
and reckless denunciations of the abolitionists,
and from another despairing appeals to the
negro slaves for valor to crush the rebellion, and
from the government itself only despondent
complaints of the embarassment caused by this
conlendirg pressure, thoy may be excused for
fearing that all just and noble leadership is
lackinir to the na tion, and that we are likely to
drift into anarchy and ruin through sheer waste
of the onergies that seek only somo hand and
head competent to wield them aright.
A flint! Murder hi winter and is Unrig by
From the St Louis Republican, July 52.
A few davs arro mention was made in the lie-
jmUiean of the killing of Miss Emily Hall, a
young iauy ot union, i-raumm country, oy ner
brother, Legrand iiaii, who shot her witn a mus
ket. The following facts, which we learned
yesterday from a gentloman acquainted with the
circumstances, show that tho murder was ono of
the most cruel and cold-blooded of any that has
jpver taken place. It appears that tho murderer
Tias for years been regarded as a desperate char
acter. A lew years ago ho was convicted oi tno
murder of Andrew Bullock, and sentenced to
the penitentiary. Shortly after ho was pardon
ed out by Gev. Stowart, at the request of a cir
cuit judgo. His father recently made his will,
and gavo $500 more to his two other children
than to Legrand. The latter took offense at this,
and determined to havo revenge. Ho endeavor
ed to make an arrangement with an old negro to
kill the whole family, on the 4th of July, but
the negro declined. Mr. Hall, the father,
was cn his death-bed on the night of tho mur
der, and hi3 ohildren, including Legrand, wero
Lale in the ovening Legrand went out of tho
death chamber, anil soon after called his sister
Emily to ioin him. Tho sister had no sooner
stopped outside the room than sho was shot dead
bv her brother, who then fled. The citizens of
the vicinity soon after turned out and succeeded
in capturing him, and he was lodged in jail. The
dav was fixed for the preliminary examination,
and he appeared in court provided with law
books and papers to defend himself. Tho exam
ination had profrreseod but a short time, when
ho was seized byathe infuriated citizens. A ropo
was tied about ml neck, nnd ho was swung up

THE AHISKXCAIY QUESTION.
Important Debate in Parliament Speech of Lord
Falmerslon .flfjr. Lindsay's Motion With-
In tho British House of Commons, on Friday
ovaaing, July 13th, tho order of tho day for
goiDg into committee of supply having been
MR. LINDSAY'S SPEECH.
Mr. Lindsay roso pursuant to notice, and said
he wished to call the attention of the House to
a matter of great importance the unhappy war
which now raged in tho United btatcs. in
doing so he felt assured that an expression of
opinion, on tbe part ot tho House, on tho sub
ject would havo an effect contrary to that which
some of bis honorablo friends near him seemed
to apprehend. He might add that, in the course
of the observations which ho was about to
make, ho would nol say ono word with refer
ence to the sinking of tho stono fleot at Chaile3-
ton, or tho proclamations which hau been re
cently issued by tho Federal generals; but
would, on the contrary, confine himsolf as
strictly as possible to the term3 of the motion
which ho had placed on the paper, lie begged
leave to move, " That, in tho opinion of thU
Houso, tho States which have seceded from the
Union of the Ii-spublic of the United States havo
so long maintained thomselves under a soj&rato
and established gorernmant, and have given
such proof of their determination and ability to
support their independence, that tho propnety
of offering mediation with the view of termi
nating hostilities between the contending par
ties, is worthy of the serious and immediate at
tention ot her Majesty's government." He
meant to leave out the latter part of tho resolu
tion of which he hal given notice; but he trust
ed the other portion of it would receive the sanc
tion of the Houso. Ho thought tho Confederate
States had shown their determination and abili
ty to support their independence. Thero could
be no difference of opinion on that point ; but
thuro might be a ditterence ot opinion as to the
propriety of our mediation.
MR. TAYLOR'S SPEECH.
. Mr. Taylor, who had given notice of an
amendment to Mr. Lindsay's motion to leave
out all the words after tho word "House," in
order to insert the words "it is desirable that this
country should continue to maintain the strict
est neutrality in the civil war unhappily existing
in the Republic of the United States," said ho
thought Mr. Lindsay had not acted as prudent
ly in disregarding tho suggestion of Sir. Clay,
to forbear to move his resolution, which would.
lie believed, add to the bitterness of the feeling in
America. He complained that a portion of the
press of this country had not acted fairly toward
tho JNorthern states, ihe resolution meant the
recognition of the Southern States and interven
tion by force, which was another word for war
with America. He had never heard, ho said,
such tremendous issues so raised. The reason
which Mr. Lindsay had assigned for the war
were fallacious. It was no casual strife ; it had
beon inevitable for years; it was the Nemesis of
that system of slavery which condemned to
chattelism millions of human beings. The
Northern States had endeavored to postpone this
crisis by discreditable compromise; but there
was at length a sacrifice they could not make.
He ic-.plored tho Houso not to adopt the resolu
tion. SPEECH OF LORD A. V. TEMPEST.
Lord A. V. Tempest, who had given notice of
a resolution, "That it is the duty of her Majes
ty's government to endeavor, either by llselt or
in combination with other European powers, by
mediation or otherwise, to bring to a close the
existing contest m America, said he thought
tho ilouse should not separate without express
ing an opinion upon the subject of thu war.
He justified tbe interference of this country on
the grounds of humanity and its responsibilities
and duties. Laying out of view the hostility
and insult evinced by tho North toward England
and putting aside the motive of interest and
even moral responsibility, he thought the peo
ple of the South, who liael courageously main
tained their indepem
country and of
claimed tho sympatBy
would bo worthless unless
acked by ulterior
SPEECH OF MR. FORSTER.
Mr. W. Forster, after replying to somo re
marks of Lord V. Tempest, said, in his opinion,
.i ., rir- -T-.1 i At ' .
itie mouon oi Air. Ajinusay ana me manner in
which it had been supported by the last speaker
were not calculated to terminate the war, but
were more likely to aggravate and prolong it,
and even to drag us iuto it. He advocated the
principle and policy of non-intervention. Was
tbe object of this resolution, he asked, media
tion or forcible interference ? If the former, the
less that was publicly said about it there the
better, and the mediator should be considered
friend by both parlies ; whoreas Mr. Lindsay
had avowed his partiality to the South. Then,
if the mediation was to be accompanied by a
threat, it would justly be regarded as an insult,
and would aggravate tho ovil. If tho North
were but let aloue.it was not improbable it would
find out that the subjection of the South was
too hard a task. Forcible interference and a
war would not only bo wicked and unjust, but
foolish. He insisted that this civil strife was a
great revolution ; that tariffs had nothing to do
with it, that slavery was the real causo of tho
war,- and that it would bo tho end of slavery.
MR. WHITESIDE'S SPEECH.
Mr. WThiteeide observed that, although this
question was difficult and delicate, that was no
reason why the House of Commons should not
express an opinion upon it; to shrink from doing
it would be a cowardly proceeding on our part,
and he thought Mr. Lindsay had deserved well
of the country in giving tho government an op
portunity of making their sentiments known.
Considering the distinctions between tho North
ern and Southern States, the fact of secession
was not surprising. The assertion that slavery
was the true cause of the war was contradicted
by tho denunciation in the North of those who
made this assertion. If there was an opposition
of interests between tha Northern and Southern
States, why should they not bo recommended to
separate quietly? If the quarrel was, as has
been stated, deep rooted, the mutual hatred ma
lignant, when would they bo reconciled? When
would other States be ontitled to interfere? It
was not proposed to interfere, as Mr. Forster
supposed, by force, but, in the spirit of tho reso
lution, if it i3 possible to check tho waste of hu
man lite, it was criminal calmly to stand by.
The interference proposed by the resolution, he
argued, was perfectly compatible with neutrali
ty. Recognition was a more aciinowieogment
of a de facto government, nothing more; aad no
ground of w ar as he showed on the authority of
Sir James Macintosh and by reference analo
gous cases. In all these cases, the question, ho
observed, was ono of time and of events, and, in
his opinion, the time had come when, upon Ihe
principles of international law, the Southern
States, which had so long maintained tneir inde
pendence, rnitrht be recognized without giving
just ground of war or umbrage to the North.
MR. GREGORY'S SrEECH.
Mr. Gregory contended that though the war,
as Liora ltusseii nau saiu, ror inaepecuence
on one side, it was- not for empire but for re
venge on the other, in pursuit of which object
every other consideration had been lost sight of
by tho North, and he insisted that wo had a
perfect right to endeavor to put a stop to such a
stato ot tfaincs. Kecocmtion he consiuerea to
be clearly involved in the resolution of Mr. Lind
say, and he added other instances to those ot
Mr. Whiteside to prove that it was the policy of
this country and tbe practico ot the united
States to recognize de facto governments. He
enumerated tho titles which tho Confederate
States had established to Tecogniiion in the
long maintcnanco of their independence, in the
power to carry on their government, as well as
in their commercial policy, and tho stringent
provisions they had enacted against tho slave
trade, the roal encouragers of which traffic, ha
maintained, had been in the North. Those who
hated slavery in their hearts must bo mad, he
said, to supposo that tho reconstruction of the
Union would bs favorable to their views. The
slavery pretext was a gras3 imposture attempted
to bo nalmed nnnri nnlilic credttlitv. The Ques
tion had been asked, if the IIou3o adopted tho
resolution, and mediation was offered and re
fused, what should next be dono 1 Ho did not
think it would be refused, but if it were, should
wo recognize tho Southern States, it would most
probably produce war; but he believed if we
ayted in conjunction with other States, wo
should hoar nothing of war, and meanwhile the
impulse would arise irom within.
Mr. S. Fitzgerald moved tho adjournment of
SPEECH OF LORD lULMBRSTOH.
Lord Palmersfon I should hope, after the
length to which the debate has gone, that the
Houso will be disposed to come to a division to
night cheers on the motion of the honorable
member for Sunderland. The subject whloh we
nave been debating is one ot the highest impor
tance, and one also of tho most delicate charac
tor hear, hear audi cannot think that the
postponement of tho conclusion of this debate
till next wcok can be attended with any bene
ficial results either one way or the other
Cheers. I confess I regret very much that
my honorable friend has thought it his duty to
bring this subject under discussion in this House
in tho present stato of things. Cheers. There
can be but one wish on the part of every man in
tho country with respect to this war in America,
and that is that it should end. Hoar I might
doubt whether any end which can be satisfacto
ry, or which could lead to an amicable settle
ment "between the two parties', is likely to bo ac
celerated by angry- debate in this House.
Cheers. Wo havo had to-night Jbe American
war waged here, in words, by champions oh
both sidos. it is quito true that many things
have been said which must be gratifying to the
teelmg3 ot both parties now fighting in Amen
ci; but, on the other hand, things have been
said in tho warmth of debato which must tend
to irritate and wound tho feelings of both sides,
and it is in human nature to think more of
things that aro offensive than of thiugs which
are gratifying and friendly I confess, there
fore, that I regret that the debute h3 been
brought on, and I should earnestly hope that
tho House would not agreo to the notion of my
honorable friend, but would leave it in the
hand3 of tho government to deal with in the
tuturo, content, as I believotho country is, with
the manner in which the past has been con
ducted by them. Cheers. I don't ask this
upon the ground-of confidence in the govern
ment of the day, because I think that whatever
party might have the rule in this country
whoovor might sit on theso benches it would
bo wise and expedient in the House to leave a
matter of such delicacy, and of such immense
importance in tho hands of the responsible gov
ernment of the day hear, hear to deal with it
according to the varying circumstances of the
momont, and not by a resolution to dictate and
point out a specific course and to tie up their
hands, thus taking upon the House of Com
mons the responsibility which ought properly
to belong to tho government. Cheers. The
motion of my honorable friend points to two
courses mediation and acknowledgment. We
have heard a very learned and well argued
speech from tho right honoiablo gentleman op
posite on the question of ackcwledgment. I
am not going to disputo that if this country
thought it right to take that course we should lie
perfectly justified in acknowledging the indepen
dence cf the Southern States, provided ocjy that
independence had been m the words which he
used " firmly and permanently established."
Hear! hear!! Moreover, I quite concur with
him that acknowledgment of that independence,
if we thought right to make it, would be no just
cause of war, no just cause pf offense ou the
part ot the Lai ted btotes, or against- this coun
try. But tho case which the right honorable
gentleman cited more especially the case of
South American republics wore totally differ
ent from that which is now presented to our con
siJoration. Hear, hear. The South American
republics were not acknowledged till a great
many years after they had practically achieved
and obtained their independence, lbat was a
war between them and Spain separated by the
wide Atlantic from her revolted subjects and
unable with any degreo of power to re-establish
her authority over them ; and, I believe, it was
nearly iifteen years certainly a great many
years beforo that independence was acknowl
But what was the sttli of affairs in this case
until the uncertain rumora we have received
this dav? A fortnight ago it was doubtful
whether tho Confederates or the Federals would
be in possession of Richmond. It was but a few
days ago that we imagined mat the wnoie course
of the Mississippi was in the hands ot the r ede
rals we know that New Orleans, and possibly
Charleston, wero in their hands, and I contend
up to the present moment, whatever may be the
opinion which anybody may entertain of the
resolution of this great determined nation of the
South to light to the last tor the maintenance of
its independence, practically tho contest has not
yet assumed that character which would justify
Ti ' r it. . :.l i
mis country in assuming ui iusi luuepeuueuuo
was nermanetly and fully established. Cheers 1
But, then, many people who talk of acknowledg
ment seem to imply that that acknowledgment,
if made, would establish some differontrelations
between this country and the Southern States.
But that is not the case. Acknowledgment
would not establish a nation unless it were fol
followed by some direct activo interference.
"Hear, hear 1 Neutrality as was well observed
by the right honorablo gentleman opposite, is
perfectly compatable with acknowledgment
You may bo neutral in a war between two coun
tries whoso independence you never called in
question. Two long established countries go to
war; you acknowledge the independence of both,
but you aro not on mat account oounu to tane
part in the contest. Hear. The light honor
able gentleman argued that we had taken a step
toward acknowledgment by admiring that the
South had belligerent rights, but Vatel and
all the best authorities on tho law of nations
hold that when a civil war breaks oat in a
country, and is firmly established there
other nations have a right to deal with those two
narties as belligerents, without acknowledging
the independence of the revolted portion of the
country. Hear, hear. Admitting that the
war has been established ou such a footing that
each party is entitled to be regarded by other
countries as belligerents, uie mere wet oi onr
having acknowledged that those two parties are
belligerenta in the international sense of the
word, does not imply a step toward acknowledg
ing ono or tho other of them as an independent
nation. Nobody can be insensible lor a moment
of tho vast importance to this country of a
speedy termination of that war. Hear, hear.
We all know the privations and sulferingti which
a great portion of our population are enduring in
consequence ot mat umortunaio war ; but on
the other hand, it has been well put by an hon
orable gentleman who spoko in this debate, that
any attempt to put an end to it oy active inter
ference, would only produce greater evils, greater
sufferings, and greater privations to those who
interfered. Hear, hear. There is no instance,
I believe, in the history of the world, of a con
test such as that which is now going on in
America a contest of such magnitude between
two different sections of tho same people. The
thirty-two years' war in Germany was a joke to
it in point of amount and magnitude. It was
but tho other day that I saw ajnap seut by the
quartermaster-general ot the Jt ederal iorces, on
which was marked out the positions of TSiO.OOO
Federal troop3. Wo now hear that 300,000
more men are to bo called into tho field
making 1,000,000 on one side, and probably
thero 13 something not mucn less on tne otner.
Irritation and exasporation on botb'sides are ad
mitted by all who havo -taken a part in the de
bate, and is that the moment wnen is can be
thought a successful offer of mediation could
be made to tho two parties? Hear, hear My
honorable friend said, "I don't caro for that;
we had better offer mediation and let it be ro
fused, and, if that wero followed by the ac
knowlodgment, it would ultimately lead to a sat:
isfactdry settlement between the two parties."
I wish to guard myself against anything in re
gard to the future. Tho events of this war have
been so contrary to all anticipation, from
time to time, that ho would be a bold man in
deed who should attempt to prophecy from
month to month what character the war would
assume Hear. I believo tho "country and
this House aro of opinion that tho government
has up to tho present pursued a wiso and pru
dent course. TGheers.! Wo should be too
haDov if anv ODDortunity should presont itself
which would afford us a fair and reasonablo
prospect of any effort on our part might be con
ducive to establish peace between theso two par-
- .-i .1
ties who are carrying on a uesuiuiiuij uuu
afllicting contest, but I think that tho House had
bettor leave it to tin discretion of tho govern
ment to judge of the occasions which may arise,
and cf tho opportunities which may present
themselves. Hear, hear. It is pon that
ground that, without going into any investiga
tions of the righti on either sido as to which
may to right and which wrong, without ex
pressing any judgment upon the two parties
I ask tLe Ilouse not to sauetion this resolution
If at nnv time we should be able, by friendly
offices , to contribute to the establishment of
peace, it can be only by presenting ourselves in
the shape ot impartial persons, not tied by opin
ions either one way or the other, anxious only
to promote that settlement between the two
which may be consistent with the feelings and
interests of both. It is only in that way that
we can render any service, and, m order to re
main in that position, to enfov that character,
it is necessary that wo should avoid pronouncing
any judgment or opinion. 1 theretore do not
follow the example of those who have expressed
opinions upon the merits of the twb parties. I
only entreat the House not to adopt the resolu
tion of mr honorable friend Fhear. hear! but
to leave to tno responsible government the task
of judging what can be done, when it can be done
and how it can be done. Cheers. I
Mr. S. Fitzgerald supported tho resolution.
insisting that a friendly power was justified, in
lmoriering, in order to put a stop to such a san
Ilia motion for the adjournment of tbe debate
was then withdrawn.
MR. HOPWOOD's SPEECH.
Mr. Hop wood, in whose name a notice Etood on
tho paper to the effect that it was his intention to
move that it is tae duty of her Majesty s gov
eminent to use every means consistent with, the
maintenance of peace, either in concert with tho
great powers of Europe or otherwise, as they
may think expedient, to endeavor to terminate
the civil war now raging in America," said he
did not teel disposed to take the course suggested
oy tne honorable member lor Sunderland, and
withdrew his motion. Very little had beon said
in the course of the discussion with respect to
tne distressed operatives ol .Lancashire and
Cheshire, of whom 197,000 were working short
time, while 58,990 were altogether without em
ployment. ICnes of "Divide! divide!" from
too benches below tho gangway on the minis
terial sido He was sorry to see the spirit which
those honorable members who professed te be
the tnend ot the operatives seomed inclined to
deal with their case hear, hear, but he
should implore the government, in the name of
iistice and chanty, as well as m tho interests ot
humanity, to take some steps to put an end to
the misery which the unhappy struggle in
America was creating, not only in that country,
but our own. I near.
THE MOTION WITHDRAWN.
Mr. Lindsay then asked the permission of the
House to withdraw his motion, observine that
fee wonKl rest satisfied with the statement ot tbe
noble lord at the head of the government, and
the hope which it held out that he would take the
earliest opportunity to bring about a termination
of the war.
The motion was then withdrawn.
From the Chicago Timf-.J
We have it by the last advices from Europe
that mass meetings were in progress in the man
ufacturing districts of England, and that they
were petitioning the government either to at
tempt mediation in Amonean anairs or recog
nize the Southern Coflfederacy. The London
limes, however, opposes both ideas, and very
property tuinKs cotton will be obtained easier
by letting us alone. The supply of cotton is
nearly exhausted, producing- the long foreseen
result ot stoppage ot machinery and the throw
ing out of employment of millions of operatives.
How thejo people are to be sustained is a ques
tion that will exerciS3 to the utmost the ingenu
ity of British statesmen. British interest in our
war and its results is enormous, and looks far
beyond the present. The burning of cotton and
cultivation only of grain by the South are as
much a defiance to England as to us. It is say
ing to her, "You wish to purchase as badly as
we wish to sell money will not buy our great
staple, but recognition will:" She dare aot re
cognize the South, for she knows the obstinacy
and determination of our people, and fears that
intervention would prove the destruction of the
cotton interest on this continent.
The lYurfi British JUview estimates the num
ber of British laborers dependent upon the cotton
trade for support at four millions; and the West
minster Ileeieto places the amount of British
capital engaged in it at five hundred millions.
From these estimated alone the extent of danger
to be apprehended from the stoppage of the trade
can be readily seen. But the remedy i3 beyond
tho prescience of the most sagacious. The dif
ficulty is not a temporary one. Tho compara
tively small amount of cotton on hand in the
Southern States would afford a very insufficient
supply, were there no obstacles in tho way of ob
taining it. The persistent obstinacy of tbe
South in not cultivating it will make tha crop
almost a failure next year. It is obvious that
whatevor stimulus England may give to the cul
tivation elsewhere, there must a long time inter
vene before she can again put her manufactories
The day of retribution ha3 come, and come in
the shape of famine around English hearth
stones. So be it. We lament that the poor
must be the principal sufftfrqrs.
England, in helping to fan the flame of sec
tional hatred in this country, has blown the fire
that burns herself. Her Thompsons, Suthor
lands and Broughams, and a swarm of insigni
ficant and less worthy intermeddlors, have been
efficient co-workers with our Garrisons, Phillips
and Beechers. New England has found an ally
in tho old. Tho houses of Beecher and Suther
land have established a mutual admiration so
ciety. The toadyism of the first has been re
paid by the flattery of the last. Their doc
trines have led to a division of this country
and a suspension of trade with the South. In
consequence, England is inquiring what she
shall do with her millions of starving operatives.
Tho question is eagerly asked now. How much
more of earnestness will there be in it as time
shall increase the pressure. The people of Man
chester now say to the government, give us cot
ton, and tbe government is helpless, boon they
will say, give us bread, and the government
must respond. In the wealth of her own citi
zens sho must hnd help. .Let the nobles dis
gorge depletion will do them good. Let Eng
lish abolitionists disgorge their philanthropy
then will be practical. Meanwhile, we do not
fear her intervention. She' ha now a task suf
ficient to employ all her resources.
The Vntiltee Two Hundred Years Ago.
Washington Irving, in his inimical " Knicker
bocker History of New York," has drawn the
Yankee character to perfection. Two hundred
years have made but little if any changes in
their character. The historian, speaking of the
Manhattan Yankees, proceeds:
In truth they are a wonderful and all prev

( The Thieves ! 1 i rom the time they nrst gained

How fJeuernl Butler Treata Seceaaianlata,
A New Orleans correspondent of tbe New
xork Herald writes aa KM lows :
A BOLD SECE3II FEMALE A ROW.
On last Thursday we bad quite an exciting
time in the street. A young woman named
Hannah Larue took it into her pretty little head
to appear on Canal street, near the provost
marshal's effiee, wearing a seeesh flag on her
bosom and te cheer for " Jen, and distribute
slips of paper on whieh was printed that Mc-
Uleilan, with forty thousand ot bis men, had
been captured, and his army completely routed.
Stteh conduct tending to incite a riot, and a
crowd. beginning to gather, Lieutenant Edward
J. Noyes, passport officer, concluded to arrest
her. He took detective Barney Williams and
placed her in custody, and ordered an orderly to
accompany litem to the City HalL As they
passed through St. Charles street, Airs, larne
screamed, and several hundred persons followed.
Just as they reached Leed's shoe store, a little
above Canal street, a man rushed oat of the store
and attempted a rescae. He knocked Williams
down and struck tbe orderly with a club : the
orderly drew his pistol, but just then another
police cmcer came up ana nrea at the man with
the club, inflicting a woand in his left breast.
The wounded man took to lik heels and has not
yet been caught. Daring the melee Mrs. Larue
escaped, but was soon again secured. After the
fi'ht w&3 all over, Williams ran like a zood
fellow, crying murder : He is to be disoissed

orderly that sho had irusHed the Geverao of

have heard that you are a gentleman." In the
meantime she indulged in very highly seasoned
language, in which profanity was an important
ingredient, about President Lincoln and other
distinguished Union officers. By this ttse a
great crowd had collected outside tbe building.
Lieut. A. G. Bowles, aid-de-caiop, west out and
ordered two cavalry men to draw their sabres
and clear the sidewalk. The crowd fell back
instantly before theso two pieces of cold steel.
In a few minutes Lieut. Noyes took the rebellious
little woman in a cernsge and earned her down
to Gen. Butler. During tbe ride she favored
Lieut. Noyes with a volley of secession senti
ments, and finally relieved herself by breaking
off the handle of her elegant fan and throwine
it in his face.

Her husband was alto brought before Gen.

the most defiant manner, making mouth and
scowling at the general in an intense style. He
tow fier ttiat taat kind ot thine would not effect
him in the least, sad that if she bit her lipe till
tbe blood ran it wouldn't trouble him. She then
turned her head as far away from him as she
could, with the most superb expression of scorn
on her face, and occasionally uttered treasonable
language and threatened (Jen. Butler. She was
particularly anxious that be should remember
that Beauregard would hear of her martyrdom.
Her husband stated that he had repeatedly
warned her against exhibitions j hatred toward
United States tfficers and soldierl. The general
issued an order sending her to Ship island. La
me begged to be allowed to go in her place, but
Gen. Butler didn't believe iu vicarious punish
ment. He asked Larue his burliness. He stated
that he was a sporting man. Gen. Butler told
him that gambling was vagrancy in the eye of
tbe law, and that he should send him to the
parish prison until further orders.
SIRS. LAHUE WAS "GAME" TO THE LAST.
She declared that she felt bad only for her
husband. She is only about twenty years old,
and is very pretty, and is very smart, and it
was really distressing to see a young creature,
so calculated to adorn society, coaductiDg her
self so disgracefully. Larue wished to send to
a Brooklyn minister (Mr. Van Dyck, I think,)
for a certificate of their marriage, from w:ch I
conclude they are from New York.

This case was hardly disposed of when we
had one of a character similar in the bitterness
of the aceused. In searching for evidence
against a man named F. M. Fisk, who was con
fined at Fort Lafayette last yearjand released on
bis parole, since when he has violated his parole
in the most flagrant manner, having been work
ing ibr the Confederate Stales and army very
earnestly, a letter was found without a signa
ture. This letter wa3 full of the most rampant
treason, and was a tissue of the most unreason
able lies from beginning to end. The letter con
cluded by saying that the writer had been with
a lady who was insulted in his prett-uce by a
Federal officer, and that he slapped the officer's
face and kicked him, and then offered to meet
him, hat the officer made some "rigmarole" ex
cuse and declined. That for this he (the writer)
was "taken before Butler," tried, and came
near being seat to Fort Jackson. Suspicion of
having written the letter fasteaed on a man
named Edward Wright, and he was brought be
fore Gen. Batles.
GENERAL BCTLER AND WRIGHT, THE SECES
SIONIST. The general asked Mm, showing the setter :
" Did you write that ?"
" Yes," said Wright.
" Were you ever before e 1"
" Were you ever before any other Uaited
States officer ?"
The general then asked him if that story about
slapping and kicking a Federal officer was aot
a premeditated malicious lie ?
" Well," said Wright, it isn't trae."
The general then bad a full ree&Btatioa ef it
written, and asked him to sign it.
" I will never sign it," said Wright.
Gen. Butler then wrote an order for Wright to
be removed to the pariah prison, and to be hung
the next morning.
Wright declared in the most approved style of
the late lamented Kirby that he weald die be
fore he would sign the paper ; and as he left the
room he pointed at a pistol and said :
" Maior-Ueneral Butler, vou may put every
ball of that pistol through my brain, but I will
never sign that papor."
During tha interview the general asked hira if
he was always ready to lie when it suited his cir

who was present, suggested to hiat that it would
be as well to spsak only for himself.
Two hours after, while Gen. Butler was at
dinner, Captain Gros.keeper of she parish prison,
came up to ma nouse ana said that Wriffht was
ready tojrecant. Lieut. Weitzel, A. D. C, look
the paper down to the pneon, and the prisoner
signed it. The secret of all his assumed courage
was that he is a British subject, and imagined
that he was as fully protected against " taking "
by Gen. Butler as he would have been against
the small-pox if ha had been successfully vae
cinatod. When this fancy wa3 dispelled he
concluded that he would be wise to make an
effort to avert bis terrible sentence. He remain
in tho parish prison, but has saved his neck.
ARREST WSI. 11. HENNING FOR KILLING UNION
. A man named Wm. II. Henniag was arrested
on Thursday under rather stegtilar circum
stances. An old German weajaH stated to Gen.
Butler that on the day the ffcet arrived at the
city she was on tho levee, and sow a crowd pur-
suiag two men who-had cried " Hurrah for L. .
cola; he's the man to save tbe Union." T .
foremost in the crowd was Ilenninsr, who wa i
shouting, " shoot the God damned Lincoinitp?
That in a few moments the crowd stopped, a- "
on coming up she saw the two men lying on t
ground shot; one of them dead, aad the otb
wounded. That Heamng enrsed the men ax
said he would put his heel on their necks, ai. I
proceeded to d oso.when tbe erowd prevented Lin .
saying, "The man is dead; that's enough.
She did not see HenniBg fire; nor did she s t
him have any weapon. She stated that sue ha
been very sick since, and that the dead ma c
was constantly before her eyes, and had nn
her so wretched that she determined to relies
her mind by reporting it to the United Stat, i
authorities. Mr. Henninr's aonearaaee and 1, :
jr reputation are decidedly in his favor; but t:
evidence ot tae woman wag so very strone- a;

Goods from Europe. Tuesday evening w '
had an interview with a gentleman lately troia
Europe, having run the blockade at a Soutberu
pert quite recently. He had with him a now
gun, manufactured in Birmingham, which ap
pears to us to be far superior for war purposes t
any in use. It has not a particle of wool in :
construction. The barrel is of steel and the
stock of iron. It is smaller, lighter, and m : j
convenient than the Enfield, and is said to ha .
a greater range with equally destructive power.
It is rifled and has a bayenet fixed oa it ia)
bayonet attachment being superior to any now
in use. It ean't be knocked off by an opposing
onsmy as the bayoaet on the eqmmaa muskes
and Euneld rifle ean. The gentleman who iia
this gun says it can be furnished cheaper thau
tbe Enfield rifle.
He also showed as samples of army shoos,
