A Fbekch Viaw.-.Tha New Orleans Bee
ins obtained a copy of the Parle Constitu
ioncl, of the tith of November, containing an
irticle upon th* war in Am*riaa, written by
If. Gaillardet, formerly editor and proprietor
>f tbe Courier den Etato Unix, (New York,)
md well known to the American pnblic aa
me of the most brilliant writers that journal
>ver had. Although M. Q lived sometime in
tfow Orleans, he hus never -had the courage,
linco his return to Paris, to face the so-called
iberal opinions of Europe npon the snoject of
kfrican slavery. At the commencement of
he present crisis in American affairs, he
wrote for tbe Pretse. several articles fkvora
>le to the North, and remarkable for their
itrong abolition tendency. Even now, though
iomewhat enlightened by events, he thinks it
lecessary to pander to the susceptibility of
lis renders by saying that, to be consistent,
Lincoln ■ liouid have proclaimed tbe emanci
pation of the slaves contemporaneously with
.he annunciation of war ' That is to say, &f.
Jt. thinks the interest of process and even of
:iviliiatiou ought to be sacrificed to an abstract
srinciple, and tbe well-being of twenty-four
uilliona he rendered certainly impossible, iv
irdor thnt the good of four millions, conies
lodly of au iui'erior caote, may potcibly be
)romoted. M. Cluil lurdet is a man of Uileuts ;
jut the Bee is right when it uvers that
' Eutopia never reaoous."
Apart from the concessiona which he maker,
x> popular prejudices iv Europe, il. O.
.reals the American iiuestKin sensibly enough,
when he considers it iv a constitutional point
>f view. We give snch portions of the arti
:leasweiind from the French side of tbe
"The war which the Northern portion of
the American Colon is waging against the
•Southern appear* to us profoundly deplora
ble; because we believe success to be ex
tremely difficult, if notabsolnteiy Impossible
because the right Is donbtfnl on both sides;
und because the mischief occasioned by th*
fratricidal struggle to the three great Inter
9ste of humanity, commerce, and freedom, Is
not counterbalanced by a single benefit, social
or philosophical. We can understand that a
nation cannot perceive itself on the verge of
dismemberment without alarm, and that she
should struggle with all her power to avert
Bach a misfortune. In doing so, she but obeys
an Instinct of nature. A people, after all, Is
but B man, and bodies of men are subject to
the same agitations and moral sufferings with
individuals. Wo were among the first to de
precate the overthrow of an edifice which
France contributed so much to found, and
we deplored the inertness of Mr. Buchanan
when the flag of secession had yet been
hoisted only by Soßth Carolina. It might
then have been easily brought down, and
had it been so the movement might have been
justly regarded, even by the other Southern
Stares, as the factious proceeding of a mi
nority. But the question assumed ti new
character the moment Lincoln's obstinacy,
not less culpable than Buchanan's Inaction,
cansfvl el-even Southern States out of fifteen
to rally, one after the other, to the side of
South Carolina, to proclaim their independ
ence, an t to organize a regular Government.
It was no longer a mere insurrection; it was
a solemn net, the result of mature delib
eration. The insurrection had become a rev
•• When one of these fatal crises in the his
tory of nations arises, tt is idle any longer to
discuss the right or the wrong of the case.—
We stand in presence of n fact, which ia no"
longer susceptible of solution except by facts.
We regard it a wast* of time to enter into an
examination of what has heea written and
•aid 'or and against the right of secession —
Opinions vary according to the point from
which the subject is surveyed. The thine ia
condemned or approved less npon general
principles than from particular circumstance*
and individual sentiment. Thns, Greece
and Belgium separated from Turkey and
Ho,land, with the applause of the liberal
portion of Europe which would likewise hail
the separation of Hungary from Austria —
Th* Washington Government Itself was
heretofore always prompt to recognize, and
often to encourage, insurrections made in the
name of popular sovereignty. Thus it was
the first to recognize the independence of the
South American Republics, and thatof Texas,
which latter it ts at this moment fighting
because she designs to use with reepect to
the United' Mates that very right which she
formerly exercised with regard to Mexico.
And yet the individual sovereignty of the
Suites were never so clearly defined in the
Mexican Republic as they are in the Ameri
can Union. The first were formed as it were
out of a solid block; the latter were compos
ite in their nature, composed of distinct
provinces, successively united by a condi
tional agreement, iv which only cerain spe
cific and well defined powers wer* delegated
to the Federal Government, while iv every
other respect their independence was to re
main perfect. The Constitution of the Uni
ted States is a contract of partnership, not a
«' Have not certain clauses of that contract
been violated by the North ? The fact stands
recorded In the 'Liberty Laws' enacted by
several Northern States to prevent the rendi
tion of fugitive slaves, in spite of the formal
stipulations of the Constitution, aud iv cer
tain laws of Congress which forbid tbe
plantsrs of the South to settle with their
slaves upon certatu portions of tbe public
domain, belonging equally to all citixena of
tbe United States. These are, it is tru*,
causes of complaint which are calculated to
Injure, rather than serve the aasu* of the
South in Inrope, where the que* ion Is con
sidered in its moral, not lulu constitutional
aspect. But to decide between two parties to
actuse, we must consider it from the stand
point of the law which governs it, leaving
ont of the qusstiou the intrinsic defects of
thatiaw The judge is neither a legislator
nor a moral philosopher. For this reason,
the supreme Court decided against the North.
"Besides, there are abundant causes of dis
agreement between the two sections of tha
Union, apart from the institution of slavery.
Tbe antipathy of their characers la uot less
profound, than the opposition of their inter
ests. The one la alciot-t exclusivsly agricul
tural ; the other almost exclusively manufac
turing. The tariffs which protect the latter,
weighs heavily on the former. Right or
wrong, they believe themselves imposed
upon, and the Federal compact ha- become,
In their view, nothing better than a beonlue
partnership. As long ago as 1&J, South Car
olina, the same State that gar* th* signal for
separation in the present war, wished to
break thecontract. on account of th* heavy
duties Imposed upon foreign merchandise.—
In a popular convention, elected with that
view, she resolved, on the 19th March, that
she won Id withdraw from the Union, if by
a specified day. certain modifications of
the tariff, which she had recommend
ed In concert with other .Southern States,
were not effected. Her Governor called ont
th* militia, and stood prepared to repel force
by force, wheu a compromise, < oncert»d be
tween Messrs. Clay and Calhoun, was adopt
ed by the Federal Congress and th* Legie
latere of South Carolina.
" Dae historical tact, from its peculiar hear
ing at this moment, ought net to be lost sight
of. On two separate occasions since the
foondation of the Union, before the moment
just mentioned, the right of secession waa as
serted, and, in both instances, by those very
Northern States that are now tbe moat fero
cious adversaries of th* South, in the first
years of the republic, in 1784, during tbe ad

Van Wyck's select committee to inquire

Our readers are invited to a close perusal of i
it. We cory from the Washington tele- l
grij.-b.ic correspondence of the Bsvv York '
Herald, of th* ISth Inst :
Tho report discloses.a stoTtllng amount of
corruption, and exposes the author*, promt- 1
nent among whom are some of the yery pa
triotic "On to Richmond" driven of the Em
pire State. Tbe inevitable conclusion from
this report is that in too many Instances In
the most important transactions of the War
and Navy Departments, men totally unfit
have been selected as agents of the Govern
ment to perform without any security what* •
ever tor their fidelity, duties that could hare
been mnch more conveniently executed by
sworn officers of the Government
In the matter of purchasing vessels an In
stance may be cited. The Stars and Strips*
cost the owners f30,000, and after using bar
one year, George D. Morgan, a government
agent, appointed by Secretary Welles, bought
her for t-W.OOO and turned her over to th* go
vernment. Mr. ."dorgan testified that Secre
tary Welles employed him with the under
standing that he was to hare two ami a half
percent, from the seller for all ships he pur
chased. The committee show that thus far
he has made over oue hundred thousand dol
lars. This important and startling fact will
account for the course punned by the Seers*
tary of tb* Navy in refusi - g to purchase many
val liable vessels when offered, unless tb* pur
chase was made through a particular chan
nel. It is shown by the committee tbst this
Mr. Morgan was connected with Therlow
„Weed ip supplying tUeOatallne. and the pure
minded Alexander Onraraing, of th* religion*
World of New Tor*,' aad O. r/. Matron, who ■
was expelled from tbe House of Represents
Ursa for corruption.
In September last, the committee requested
Secretary Welles to discontinue the services
of Mr. M-trgan, but he refused. Stbc* that
time, the committee show that Mr. Morgan
has made over forty thousand dollars. This
is considered a fair profit for a tresis!/ dealer;
but, as be is brother-in-law of the Secretary
of the Navy, of ctmrse it is all right '" - -
In regard to the-aarchase of the Oataltns,
there are someßTgnfnV'ftnt facta la the taste
mony that ars not alluded to la th* report
It appears that the original cost (iis/>on> was
paid in four notes of #t,.w each, given Yy
four parries—Tbnrlow Weed, Cr. Davidson,
O B. Mitteßon, and John E. Develln. Bach
one of tbe notes was signed by one of thsas
four, and endorsed by the others.
Ia the item of purchasing army suppiiss,
It Is shown that autboiity was given to Gov.
Morgan and Alexander Cumraings to disburse
two millions of dollars. No vouchers Were
required or given. Governor Morgan trans
ferred his authority to Geo. D. Morgan, Secre
tary Welles's special favorite, who, with
Curomtngs, made all the disbursements —
Weed A Company appear to have controlled
the employee* of these agents, and to a cer
tain extent dictated their purchase*.
Coming A Company, hardware men of Al*
bany, were selected to furnish groceries, and
among tbe purchases made by Cummmgs ware
linen pantaloons and straw hats, which are
not r> cognized as army clothing, and were
probably never used.
It is ah own In this testimony that an effort
was made by the Secretary of War to confer
uponCummings the control of the Subsis
tence Department in New York, but It failed,
on account of Major Eaton's declining biseer
vices or assistance.
Tbe improvidence and reckless extrava
gance of General Fremont is showa in glar.
lug colore. The simple Pern of buying con*
demued Ausrim musketa will suffice for aa
example. Twenty-five thousand of them
were purchased In one lot; the committee say
it Is probable th»t the arm had been rejected
from the Austrian service, and purchased oa
•peculation and sent to this country in view
of the extraordinary demand for anna. Th*
arm, in the condition in wblch It was par
chased, will certainly never be used by oar
