* from u London (March 28) letter to the Newj
York. Times : . . .
A whole il.-ct ..? prfji ri .*.?"??3 rapidly as pos,
sible, ostensibly for 1 hi? Emperor ol Ch\nnJ
Every body'knows they are intended to'open?j
the' Confederate ports. Everybody knowsjg
that the Confederate loan was raised to pui-sjj
chase (.heir'outnt. This was the reason'why f$
eighteen millions-nearly' g 100,000,000-waaf
wanted. This was the reason why; the ?'stocks
went lip to livo per cent premium, though ta-a
ken ht eighty, and put on the market ?tj
ninety.
The simple truth of the matter ii?, that witbJ
the'active*sympathy of tbe'upper classes,"'andi
the wneutrality.' of tbe-Government, a strong-j
party of English capitalists, cotton "specula-j!
tors, ship-builders and merchants, bnvetakenf
hp the cause of the South in earnest, and Sj
mean to put it through. They have embark-H
ed their millions, ana do not mean to losejs
them. The Government cannot interfere 10T
prevent it, and has no* disposition to do sb.e
As Lord Palmerston said last night, if they g
attempted to amend the law, they might raa-ceg
it worse. The Government will be neutral
It .may even pass over the seizure of the Po
terhoff by Captain Wilke*. They will let the|
North buy all the "hardware" in Birmingham.
But they neither cati uor will prevent thej
departure of a single one of the fourteen:
steamers which Mr. Bright says ar? dttinyf
out for the Confed?rate Government. Englani: '
as a Government, is not at war with you.l
but English capitalists and manufacturers are,j
and I do not see bow it is to be helped.
The interest, you must grant, is a veryj
strong one. Look at the millions of capital'
rusting away io Lancashire ; look at the great?
cotton manufacturing interest which has en-j
circled the world; at the closed cotton ports,J
the dragging war which shows no sign of J
termination, the starving populations, already!
beginning to break out into riot and disorder.!
You talk of war. They ask nothing bett->r.1
The more you threaten, the less likely ihek
Government will be to interf?re with theirg
projects. A war, they think, wo?ld Booti?
settle the. matter. You will take Canada. ?
"Well, it was but the other day that Mr. Glad |j
stone was for getting rid of that troublesome"!
province on any terms. You will send oui
privateers. If you do your ports will be block:
aded, and all others closed against them, so
that privateering will not be profitable. Ships
will go armed with thu Armstrong guns, or
be guarded by tner.-of-wnr steamers. That is
the way Englishmen feel They are growing
so irritated aud disgusted with the war that
thev ar? ready for anything that will put an j
end to it.
Lord Harlington, in an election speech this?
week, stated the whole case, lie had juMg
come from America, where he had travejlec
in both sections, and he w-is out and otu
Southern, and declared that no union could
be restored, nor could the South be Conque
ed. This opinion was never so Grin as at this
moment, is it strange that strong efforts
should be mad*-to hasten a resuit in which
faith is so general ?
If the statements publicly made, ami ap
pareutly based pn good authority, are to bi
pelipyed, the Confederates, within a month,
will ha\e at sea one of the nio3t formidable
d^ets that ever steamed out upon the Atlan
tic. The steamers uew preparing will he a.
fleet, ns strong, and as powerful as British^
machinists eau malte them. You have not^
begun to fortify the Northern ports a day t -o
soon, f cannot tell when tu-j blow will fall ;
I onlv know that the Confederates here are
In radiant jubilation. They care nothing
about Vicksburg or Charleston. They ex
pect to go home in " ninety days." They cai ejj
nothing for the new Union movement in thee
tyorth. Tjaey care not for re-Cognition. Tin P
money market has recogni'f-d them-that Lsg
enough. Jf cotton i* uot king, it is at least al
^acd subject, and bas given them a loan ol?
$15,000,000, wit^ the pfjerof sis t'mes a.-J
arneb. Tpat is glory enough.
The Fall of Fripe?.
The healthy iufluenco of tbe Tax Bil', which]
has just become a law, is already making it?
aelf felt in the provision market. Since the!
leadiug features of the tax have obtained pub
licity, the decline of prices, in Hour, rice and}
other articles of food, has been steady and!
unmistakeable. A variety of reasons arnj
given to account for the fall ; some ?attribu
ting it to the sudden contraction of the cur j
rency by the recent fundingof so many mill-l
ions of our redundant currency in C mfederatej
bonds; and others alleging as a cause, thej
restrictions lately imposed upon inter-Stste!
shipments for the purposes of speculation.!
Both these circumstances, doubtless, have'
contributed, in a measure, to bril?-* ok~~' *''
reduction of prices ; but the agency that bas'
been mainly instrumental in effecting th* we!-'
come chango l>, !n fact, the new Confederate]
tax. '
At no tim ?, we feel convinced, hus there
existed any real scarcity of food in the South-1
ern States. But in every community, be-!
?idesand distinct from the speculators and'
extortioners, there have been timi 1 capiial
i?ta( who, investing their fuuds in an accumu
lation of provisions, and refusing to sell, rath
er with a!view to security than profit, havo
yirtually withdrawn fro'n tho market a very
large proportion of its natural supplies. An
artificial scarcity has beou produced, while, ia
truth, there was abundaaee in the land.
But, during the last three weeks, prices
have reached their acn.e, and there isa rea
son to believe that the decline which has be
gun is not yet ended. The new wheat and
corn crops promise to be the heaviest ever
known in the South, and will, ere long, be
pressing 'u-?o the market. Thc policy of im
porting provisions in large quantities has al
ready been inaugurated, the well known
Charleston firm, waose enterprise and tact bas
already, in other respects, conferred incalcu
lable benefits upon ibo country, taking ?the
lead in this last and most important dtvcl
opemeut of the blockade trade.
With the prospect of this early and active
competition in the market, and with thu cer
tainty of the heavy tax upon hoarded produce
wbioh must be paid early in the sommer, il
is not strange tnat_kolderg should everywhere
be cautiously relaxing t heir grasp upon thoii
accumulated supplies. Nor need we be sur
prised to find that, as those supplies, so lon;
withV'ld, are wisely yielded to the demand
there occurs sacha tumble ia the price 0
food, as will add new nervo to the arms n
our soldiers in the field, and BCDd joy nm
thankfulness to the heat ts of the whole peo
pie.-Charleston Mercury 28th.

.vhich has just passed, is working out tbest
ood results, and we incline to thiuk the gooc
as but just begun. The bill will withdmw
n amount of curreucv nearly equal to tba
paid out, which will increa.su confidence it

the tax will supply the army with food with

result will be, that tile industry of the coun

About Women.

big women, says :
? u It ii an acquaintance which, when habit |
ual, exercises a grcit influence over ihc tom
[of the mind, even if il tloca not produce any {j
.moro violent effects, lt refines the tu-ste."r
.'quickens the perception, and gives, as i??
[wer?, ii grttce and flexibility to the intellect.*!
^Somewhere else the tame writer remarks thatp
j" men are us much stimulated to mutual ef-|
?fort by the t.ympaihy cf thc gentler sex, asp
?by the desire nf power or fame. Womel
[are moro -dtsposotl to appreciate worth titid
intellectual superiority] than meaj ur at least,t
'they ate an often caj/ivated by the noble
'manifostations o? gcuiis, as by the fascina
?non of maiint'rs and tie charms ot' parson.'
I Ami Sidney smith mys : "Among men ol
sense ami liberal politeness, a woman who
'has successfully cultivated her mind, without
[diminishing lin; gentleness a: 1 propriety of
?ber manners, is i-Jways sure to meet with a
respect and admiratioi bordering upon cu
jthusiasra."
I Again, anuther writer observes that, "Of
all other views a man may, intime, grow
?tired, but in the couiitt?ift?ce of women therog
.is a variety which sets veariness at defiance."
