COMMERCE OF THE PORT.
The foreign exports of cotton during the month
of January show, not only a large increase over
any preceding month of tho current commercial
year, but are also much heavier than in any month
since the opening of our port iu July, 18G5. In
January noarly 25,000 bales of cotton were shipped
foreign and coastwise, of which 17,189 bales have
gone forward on foreign account.
This is a bright and encoring circumstance to
our merchants, when compared with tho gloom
and complaints of a general depression of buei
! noss that pervades nearly all other commercial
communities, and indicates a healthy reaction in
one of our principal branches of trade, which wo
should spare no exortion to re-o^tabUsh and in?
Thc import business has been lighter than that
of December. I860, and much? smaller than tho
same month of the previous year. This, however,
arises from tho fact that our market was almost
bare of foreign goods during the former eoason,
and it is jot too early for importations for the

auspicious opening of the new year, and trust that

THE FUTURE OF EUROPE.
Prussia, but a few centuries back, was a fief of
Poland. Tho latter was then one of the moat pow?
erful kingdoms of Europe, while tho Hohenzol?
lern s were scarcely known out of th * immediate
vicinity ol' ?heir petty markgraviate. Kow Poland
is no more, and Prussia takes rank as a first-class
power in tho family of European Statc-s. Tho dis?
memberment of Poland, and utter annihilation of
its national existence, is the only case of its kind,
that we know of, that has occurred m modern his?
tory. Tho great FREDEBIO, it i? said, first propos?
ed thc Partition of Poland, and was mainly instru?
mental in its prompt and oftectivo execution. The
principle of "nationality," now fast becoming re?
cognized as one of the organic principles of public
law in Europe, had not then been born. "Succes?
sion," and the interminable wars growing out of
that principle, ever so fertile in disputes, then set?
tled all questions of sovereignty. Poland had a
distinct, well-defined geographical existence, and
a population as homogenous, perhaps, as any other
State of Europe of tho same extent, yet neither the
stipulation of treaties, nor tho utmost aversion of
her people to their foreign conquerors, could pre?
vent the disintegration of that country; nor, hav?
ing once lost their national cxisteuce, have they
been able, in a struggle of a hundred years,
to take a single, stop towards restoration.
There was a quasi Kingdom of Poland under
Russian dominion, and there was also a Prussian
Poland; but oven this somblauce of respect to na?
tional prejudice has recently been withdrawn; and
the lalo Kingdom of Poland is now a mero Russian
province, and Posen has boon as thoroughly Prus?
sianized as Brandenburg or Westphalia. There ia
new a large admixture of Gormans in the Prussian
provincej of Poland, and we do not think there is
any serious opposition to, or even discontent with,
Prussian rule in that part of the dominions. It
is otherwise with Russian Poland. Tho Czar, "the
natural ally" of the groat American Republic, hos
no squeamish qna'ins about oppressed nationali?
ties, nor any sentimental prejudices in favor of
Polish patriotism. Tho Pope has received his
walking papers. The Czar thinks himself quite
competent to govern tho Catholic Church in the
"District" that waa formarly known as the King?
dom of Poland. Russian ?B to be the language of
tho people, and the Greek ere long to be their re?
Ono of the results of the French Revolution is
the acknowledgment of the doctrine that govern?
ments are for the benefit of tho peoplo, and can
therefore only exist with the consent of tho gov?
erned. It took two revolutions to engraft this
principio on the English Constitution. Tho framers
of tho American Republic wero tho firsr, perhaps,
who set it forth clearly and distinctly in ipsissimis
verbis. Throe French Revolutions have since reite?
rated, in letters of blood, this same dogma; until
now, at length, it begins to bo quoted as a public
maxim. In 185?. tho Emperor "of the French"
espoused tho Italian cause, against Austria, osten?
sibly upon this ground; and, during the past year,
there was non-intervention on the part of tho same
monarch, in a renewed quarrel between Austria
and Italy, and vor tho some reason. The poople
have a right to say who shall rule over thom.
This, however, within certain limits. The "Peace
of Europe" is not to be disturbed without cause,
and the incipient would-be nationality must havo
some reasonable ground of success, whether from
inherent strength, or political complications of the
When Italy roso to throw off tho yoke of Aus?
tria, ehe had the sympathy of the world; when
Ireland rises periodically, sho is put down, the
rebellion ia "stampod out;" just as the "rebellion"
was in the lato Southern States of thia Republic.
Had Franco and England felt assured of om* ulti?
mate success, there CHU bo no doubt thoy would
have boon fully convinced ol' oui* right to chooBo
our own political relations, is well as our own tomi
of government, and this, Exeter Hall, ulibe)it,
?gaille, etc., to the contrary notwithstanding.
The oppressed inhabitants of tho Isles of Greece
havo risen against tho Turks, and dosire incorpo?
ration with Greeco, their mother and their kinfolk.
Thia dosire must soon bo fulfillod. Thoro will bo
much war and great bloodshed before its accom?
plishment, but Greek unity is as cortain within a
few years as Italian unity ?B now, and aa united
Germany will be within a very brief space of time.
Even Russia, who "cannot BOO it" in tho case of
Poland, sheds scalding tears over the woes of tho
poor CandiotB, who aro ruled by Turks.-Christians
opprossod by Mussulmans. That Catholic Poland
is similarly situated in regard to Greek Russia is
"neither hero nor there."
Tho tendency in Europe at present is to great
States, aud it ia a great strido in modern civiliza?
tion that homogeneity o? population, rather than
tvars, conquosts and diplomacy, fixes the bounda?
ries. True, tho sword has been frequently called
tn of late to enforce this right; but tho probability
is that when onco this present transitive period is
past, and the soveral nationalities of Europe havo
formed their respective Statos, there will then bo
such an equipoise of political power,-each State
surrounded on all Bides by equally powerful coun
;rios, that there will be little or no temptation to
war. Thc immense "peace establishments" of Eu?
rope, a disgrace to the age, may then, to a groat
?xtent, bc dispensed with; for if Sovereigns arc
ifraid to go to war, on the ono hiMid, or have but
ittlo inducement to do so, which amounts to the
same thing, there is no reason for keeping a largo
umy on foot; and there is no reason why, in a few
rears, there should not be a confederation of Euro
poan States, who should determine by convention
die extent of military forco to bo kept by each,
lu fact, thc army would thou bo indeed, as it al?
laya has boon in thoory, a more constabulary
forco, needed for tho proper execution of the laws.
But before thc fulfilment of thia beau ideal of
:he Peace Congress cati be reasonably expected,
mere must bc som o important changes in the
Map of Europe, as at present constituted. Gcr
nany must become one ; under Prus?ia, or govern
>d by a Parliament, as circumstances and events
nay develop ; Pan-Germanism will bo the measure
>f tho new Empire ; thc German provinces of Aua
ria will therefore bc dotached from that country,
md incorporated with the fatherland.
lu fact Austria will almost of nocoasity be dis?
integrated, lier Italian provinces arp gone ;
Italian Tyrol, Illyria, and every other inch of ter?
ritory, wlicro tho Italian language is spoken, will
oro long bc united with Italy. Tho German pro?
vinces, we have said, will bo claimed by the Ger?
man Parliamont. There will then be either an
entirely slavonic Austria, or, moro probably, Hun?
gary will assort hor power, and form tho nucleus
rf a new empire, to re?oive important accessions
from the East.
Turkoy must go also. Her doom has long been
spoken. Russia, Greece and Austria or Hungary
will bo her executors, or, perhaps, more correctly
her executioners. England and France also may
probably como in for an island, or seaport, some?
where in the East,-either for talcing part in the
quand or olso for thoir non-intorvention.
Theso, we think, are some of the-more important
acts soon to bo looked for in thc drama of Eu?
ropean politics. They are, on the whole, progres?
sive, and tending to an amelioration of tho condi?
tions of tho pcoplo, both politically and materially;
and wbilo there is much in tho details of execu?
tion, which wo caunot approve of,-as indeed we
know that selfish ambition is the controlling mo?
tive in nearly all theso changes, we are yet glad to
see thom, and hope for their final consummation
at an early day.
HONOR THE BRAVB.
We take pleasure in laying before our readers,
this morning, tho account from the New Or?
leans papers of the very interesting funeral
obsequies of Gtm. ALBERT SIDNEY JOHNSTON.
The occasion was ono calculated, in the high?
est degree, to awaken in every bosom the no?
blest impulsos and holiest sentiments. Hore
was tho grave of the hero, a man every inch a
soldier, who had earned high military fame before
the late unholy war called him to resign bia place
in thc United States service. He was surrounded
by adverse circumstances from the very beginning
almost of his career in the Confederate cause.
He was often misjudged, and, it is said, finally
met a prematuro doatb, chiefly because he was
over-anxious to refute the many slanders that
were circulating about his Fabian policy. He fell,
and too late his countrymen found the priceless
value of that noble life.
It is due to JEFFERSON DAVIS to remark bore
that ho never lost faith in Gen. JOHNBTON as a man,
nor confidence in his ability as a soldier.
Hore then was the open grave of the groat horo,
the martyr, we may say, of a canso we all held
dear. It was a fit time to shod tears, and a fit
place. We wonder not that thrco States claim the
honor of his sepultare; nor that thousands of de?
voted hearts in tho queen city of the South should
take a mournful pleasure in doing honor to his
memory. The Cause is lost, and we would utterly
discountenance all vain rcpining3, but it is too
much to expect of our people at once to eradicate
from their heart of hearts all that they held most
dear; for what can be dearer to a man than h:s
country ? or to a woman than that country's brave
heroes and defenders ?
Wo regret that Ga?erais GHLFFD? and SHERIDAN
conceived it their duty to oppose themselves to
tho peoplo of Galveston, who dosirod to do public
honor to tboso sacred remains. Wo cannot help
suspecting that it was moro a stroke of pobcy than
a sense of duty, that dictated those ordors. Wo
cannot seo, how a man with a spark of fooling for
the noble, a soldier who professes veneration for
heroism, could find it incumbent upon bim te
lacerate the bleeding bearts of a mourning people
at such a timo. There could bo no possible harm
in the demonstration; and no barm could come
from it. But what matter? Tbenamoof ALBEBT
SIDNEY JOHNSTON.W?U -be remembered and revered
when PHIL. S HEREDAN shall have long been forgot?
ten, even though be is now lauded for bis vandal
action by- tho unprincipled Radical proas of tho
North. Tho noble warior-lioro will rest in peace,
his memory, for.ages to come, enshrined in the
affections of hundreds of thousands of tho loving
hearts of tho true men and women of bis country.

Opinion of tho Rev. Mr. Repiten in regard to tte
quality of the Soline Ott:
WILMINGTON, N. a, 31st December, 1866.
Sra: I have been using your "Soline Od" for some
time in a night lamp, and find it the safest and most
economical burning fluid I have ever used. IA gives a
steady and beautiful soft light and I can-say from expe?
rience that the article obtained from yon is not explosive,
but is perfectly safe in the hands of any ono.
