If the reception in Kng'and of the
accounts of the late events in Cuba
be any true indication of the feelings
of the British people, and the purposes
of the British Government, we
must look to be called up soon
to encounter an avowed and concerted
system of Ku rope an hostility?a
revived Holy Alliance of Kuropean
and influence. Tlio press and (lie
Parliament?Tories, W higs and Rad
ieals?broke out into a furious ami
tumultuous storm of rage against the
American Government and people.
The Executive was allowed by tome
to be well meaning, but powerless;
but the form of Government was denounced
as incompatible with the
maintenance ol the duties which nations
owe to each other; and the people
as ambitious, grasping and unscrupulous,
to whom its own Government
is an object of contemptuous
disregard for imbecility?a robber
race* ill fact, to wnnm ilm
nations and ol'luunauWy arc no re.
straint, and against whom civilized
Europe must combine to prevent
ihcm from overrunning all ne ighboring
countries with revolution and rapine.
Some of the most grave members
of Parliament?we do not include
in that list the fantastic charlatan
Brougham?intimated theneces- J
sity of some grand demonstration to
check the amoitious and aggressive
spirit of the United States; and in sev.
cral quarters broad intimations were
thrown out that a proposition would

dpnu by Lopez and his men; and
warned that the ample punishment
of these men can alone satisfy the |
nations of Europe, and give (ireat
Britain a sense of security for her
own territorial possessions in America.
The London Times threatens
that if these things be not done by
the laws, of the United Stales, they
will bn enforced by "all civilized na-!

I attributes habitually to his neighbor,
and which are the most notable char

; leauges of all the kingdoms, to prej
vent them from robbing and plunder- j
i ing each other on every occasion; and
| that they cannot safely abandon

tablish a kingly alliance in America,
of which the only profit discernible

We hardly suppose any response
to the British testimony of indignation
ai me enormity ol seeking territorial J
or national aggrandizement, by other
tlian peaceful means, will be given
! seriously by the empires and States j
that partitioned Poland?that media- j
tized Germany, or conquered Algiers I
or plundered India, or bombarded
Canton. Such a concord might furnish
another instructive chapter in the

Nor do we believe the English altogether
earnest in proposing this continental
league of kings to meddle
with American affairs. It is gooil
brave talk, and will serve to amuse
the English people like the old song
"Britain rides the Waves,' and the j
constant chaunting in the street and j
on the stage of the firm resolve that!
'Britons never, never will be slaves.' j
It is a safe valve for a little patriotic |
i-uervescencc; and without doubt, every
peer and orator, after demanding
that England should take the lead of
all Christendom in putting down these
ambitious and grasping Americans,
looked and felt a hero.
It would be altogether a different
matter if he were called upon to go
out and fitfht? or to put his hand
in his pocket to pay the expense.
Hesides, just now a little flurry about
transatlantic matters, matters, no
matter what, may help British diplomacy
out of a snarl. Lord Palmerston

come to nothing.

Gbnbrous Rivalry.?The W ashington
Union has the following "brief
mention" of a most amiable spirit
prevailing in the Senate. It was in
relation to the vacant presidency of
k-\\ e observe that the name of the j
Hon. Daniel S Dickinson has bi?en 1
mentioned in several newspapers in
connexion Willi this office; and we
learn that he was in fact very warmly
urged by various gentlemen, both
from the South and the North, an I
of both the great political parties, to
allow himself to be proposed as a
candidate But he conceived that
there would be more or less of impropriety
in his permitting himself to be
chosen to the second office in the republic
at a period when a citiv.cn of
the State of New York already occupies
th(! first; which consideration,
together with the fact of his unwillillirnoco
in o?? IV. ~4 --.'.I
in uuj iw ivjlIillCl Willi
his friend, Col. King, for political station,
induced him at once to decline
the proffered honor. It will be remarked
that Col. King's unanimous
election did, in point of fact, occur at
the instance of Mr. Dickinson. It is
with high gratification without ion
that when Col. King learned that
Governor Dickinson's friends were,
some of them, urging his claims to
the vacant place, he did not hesitate
to dcc!a e his willingness to unite m
his support, and actually proposed to
do so; to which the Roman-like sena
tor lrom JNevv York would l?y uo
means consent. Alay such generous
rivalry ever mark the conduct of democratic
senators towards each other'"
Tub last Message of Gfn. Taylor.?The
\\ ashington correspondent
of the Charleston Courier writes:
"Gen. Taylor wrote a message to
Congress, which was finished and
copied by some hand, in the early
p.m 01 msi weeK, upon several important
topics. Had it been communicated,
it would have caused a
profound sensation. It. urged his
views as to the adjustment of the territorial
question, and the immediate
admission of California. It importuned
Congress to provide the necessary
supplies for the government. It
declared his determination to support
the present srate of of things in New
M exico, against the pretensions of
Texas. The message, as I have
learned, lies in the State Department
That the new administration will car,i..?

cannot lake so bold a tone,
lie wil be obliged to conciliate and
even tcnipori/.e. lie will rely on Ihe
passage of the Senate adjustment bill
if pass it ever should, to settle the
New Mexican dispute."
The Rumored Caucus.?'lX,"of
the Baltimore Sun, concerning the
rumor so extensively circulated of a
Union caucus, says:
"One of your 'well-informed Washington
correspondents' certainlv did
not hear a word of the 1 Union caucus,1
that was held on Friday, according
to the despatches sent to the
Baltimore Putriot and New Yc: ;
Herald, and what is worse, I have
not heard of it since, nor been able to
discover the Senator who has been
there. The thin# was manufactured
out of the whole cloth, or rather out
of the tvool, which myself had furnished
in my published letter of Friday
morning. 1 there alluded to an
amendment that was about to be pro
posed to the compromise bill, by providing
for a division of the State, by

long ago, that the narallcl of 34 degrees,
would probaoly be adopted as
the northern boundary of Texas.
"The amendment will be proposed
by Mr. Douglass, and consists; 111 an
amendment to his amendment, already
offered and pointed, by which

States, all of which shall come into

PiiAtsr. Worth IIavivc..?-The
Mobile Tribune, a journal indcpen
(Unit ot party, and which is as judi-'
cious as it is consistent and firm in its
dclence of the cause of the South*
passes tlie following discriminating
judgment on the speech of our Senator,
' We should like to give our read- j

Wo have already given a
brief and meagre abstract of it. it
conlinvs itself to a few important
pouus?sucli as a vindication of the
Missouri Compromise, and the necessities
that the South is under to he
firm and watchful?but these it illustrates
in a pellucid current of the
soundest argument. There are no
threats or restiveness displayed by
the speaker, but a great deal of earnestness
and such manifestations of
firmness as are calculated to make
one believe that in action he would
be wherever the South needs a man
Tnr. Compromisk.-A letter, from a
uisiiuguisiiuu private source, at \V ash

ident Taylor, and speculating on the
probability of his death, says, "if he
should die, the Compromise J5ill will
certainly pass," meaning, we presume,
that Mr. Fillmore, on his succession
to the Presidency, would cast
his influence in their favor* .So says
