-The Washington correspondents say that

In the meantime, Mr. Sumner is said to be

and Edwin M. Stanton is -spoken of for the
Treasury Department by prominent Radicals,
who, while they are satisfied with Boutwfll's
politics, think he lacks force. It is said that
the hue and cry gotten np by the Radical press
about the Cabinet has for its ultimate object
the displacement of some of the present Cabi?

Radicals, like Sumner and Stanton.

Penman left fifteen; the Duke of Argyll bas

thirteen, and the father cf the Duke of Buc?

D.sabering eleven and twelve is very large.

-A. new movement is said to be on foot in
Washington, which, if successful, will mate?
rially strengthen the Cuban cause, flays the
Traveller correspondent : "Prominent Ameri?
cans are endeavoring to induce the President
to take" some step or make a declaration
showing his approval of the annexing of the
Island-of B~. Doming* to-tho United States,
and that ho ia in sympathy with any move?
ment which haB this object in view. This
would bo merely an open declaration on
the part of the President of what he
docs not hesitate to admit in private
conversation, and making, to a certain
extent, an official announcement o? these
views. When this is done, it is claimed by
those who are urging this course, that Presi?
dent Baez, of tho St. D -mingo Republic, will
afc once recognize tbe belligerency of Cubans,
?nd extend such aid aa will insure their suc?
cess in obtaining their independence. As the
Island of St. Domingo is bnt a few hours sail
from Eastern Cuba, where the insurrection is
tbe strongest, it would give the insurgents a
strong foothold from which to ship munitions
of war, and commit depredations upon the
Spanish commerce with small vessels, which
could rhu ont and in the harbors at pleasure.
This plan, it seems, was proposed several days
ago, but kept secret .from fear it would be
frustrated. Whetherit is successful or not, per?
sons well-informed as to Cuban movements as?
sert; with great confidence, thal St. Domingo
will soon reoognize Coban belligerency."
FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 14, 1869.
The Triple Alliance.
A London dispatch to the New York Tri?
bune says that initiatory steps' have been
taken for. an alliance, both offensive and
defensive, between England, F ran oe and
Spain, against the United fitstes; this mess
are being taken in view of the rejection of |
the Alabama treaty, the tone of Sumner's
speech, the filibustering tendencies off
Grant's administration, and the reported
connivance of the United States authorities
With the expeditions against Cubs. This
dispatch is entitled to consideration, be?
cause it is sent te a j our nal which has never
made s praotioe of woking np highly-spiced
foreign news for the sake of an ephemeral
notoriety. The foreign joorrespondence of |
the Tribune is. both able and trustworthy,
and it may be taken for granted that it is
believed in the London office of that paper
that the new tripl? alliance is in process of j
But there ia a broader and more emphatic
reason; why. snob, sn alliance may be looked
(or. If there. is any virtue in senatorial
ipeaking, in newspaper writing, snd in the
popular sentiment which 1B moulded by the
press, England will, sooner or Inter, be
'oroed into s war with the United States?
Chis must be ss plain at the Court of Sk?
i?mes ss it is under the shadow of the
lusky GoddesB of Liberty who broods over
ne Federal capital. And it is equally ?vi?
tent that it is the desire of the United States
0 make wsr on England al one. France has, j
n every instsnoe, escaped the opprobrium
which hss been heaped upon "perfidious
.'Albion." Her Majesty's Government re?
cognized the Southern Confederacy as. s
>elligereat power. Napoleon proposed to
?eoognixe the independence of the Confede?
rate States. Earl Bussell-s weak and ir
esolu te politic ian,-allow ed the goldern op?
portunity to pass, snd F raneo wss sot
trong enough te sot alon e. Yet there are
weet words sad honied phrases for the
butteries, while Sumner's declamation and
/handler's abuse sro all thst is vouchsafed
It is, then, manifestly to the interest of |
r s English Government to form sn alliance
?hieb will make her so strong that a wsr
vita, her would be hopeless and ruinous. I J
Chere is enough conceit in the universal 1
Cankee nation to goad on the Sphinx-like
}rant to a war at any price. But with
rrsnoe st her bael-., England has nothing to
esr, sud Spain, which is chested snd bam?
boozled st every turu by the Grsnt admin
slrstion, would find is s coalition with
?ag?an* and France full security for Cuba,
ind an armor of proof to defend her from the
ll eonoealed enmity of the United States. ]
3lancing over the field, then, it ia safe to J
isy thst s triple sllisnoe, suoh.as that apo?
cen of la the Tribune dispatch, would be, ,
'or England snd Spain, s master stroke of 1
lolioy, while it would not in any way inter- .
ere; with the purposee of France. This
teing the case, it is fair to assume thst
here is some foundation for the startling i
.umor which in New York is "generally ,
In the meanwhile, every Southerner
ihould watch the political horizon with a
1 ilm sad steady eye. We know not what j
night be the final result of a war between '
he Government of the United States and ]
he three powers; hut if is the part 1
if wisdom to keep our house in order :
ad be ready to ' meet every issue that
aay arise. Our people now should be ohary
f contracting debts snd of increasing their
utstanding engagements. The first seri- ]
us talk of a war would drive gold out of \
[ghi, and in the course of tho war the his- 11
ory of the Confederate'currency would be p
epeated. We must live quietly, and, as jj
u ss possible, within ourselves. Especial
tte nt ion should continue to be given to "I
aisiog breadstuff's. No opportunity should ?
e neglected of increasing our manufaolu- jj
ing capacity. Our sim should be to make -
ie South as far as possible independent, K
9 that if the war cloud does burst over this
lontry, we may be ia a position to ride _
at the storm with but little loss, end be
ble to take every proper advantage of the N
hences and contingencies of the future. j
'tie Savannah and Charleston li a 1 lroad T
We are requested to say that the Courier
rae premature in announcing on Wednes
ay that a conlraot had been perfected for ?
he rebuilding of the Savannah and Charles- J
on Railroad from Coosawhatchie to Sa-1 K
annan.. The oontraot at that time was not
igued; but we are authorized to say that it
i now executed, and that Charleston will
ave direct communication with Savannah,
y rail, by January 1st, snd by rail and
learners OB the Savannah river, by Ooto
er 1, next.
'J be Fleuch elections.
Th? elections which lake place on Sun?
day, May 20. are causing deep excitement
in France, and four meetings in Paris of a
political character have been dispersed by
the police. As was expected, the opposi?
tion to the government in the capita' and
the chief cities is more active than ever be?
fore ; but, so perfect is the machinery of |
the government, and so great the influence
exercised by ifs officials, that it will be
almost impossible for a candidate in the
rural districts to obtain mofe than a re?
spectable majority. The Emperor, in re?
moving the restriotionB upon the employ?
ment of workingmen, and in deoreeing a
pension to the surviving veterana of the
Empire, has struck high for popular sup?
port ; for Napoleon is shrewd enough to
know that the intelligent portion of the
people are becoming weary of his system of
personal government, and that it is time lo
concede to them a larger abare of power and
restore at least the form of parliamentary
freedom. This can only be done in a legis?
lative assembly which cm be relied on
never to exercise its privileges in persist?
ent opposition to his interests and will.
Hence his efforts not to Secure a govern?
ment euooess, which is certain, but to pre?
vent the opposition from adding to their
strength by electing additional members.
TEE LONDON TIMES, of the 29th ult., has a
leader commenting upon the appointment of
Mr. Motley and the proposed renewal of nego?
tiations on the Alabama claims. The cable
briefly r tferred to this article a few days eince
in such terms as to excite much anxiety to see
the article in full, on the part of the mer?
chants, bankers and others, whose interests
a?e more or less influenced by the discussion
of the question. The article is in good tem?
per throughout, though the regret is repeat?
edly expressed that the Johnson-Stanley treaty
was not accepted by the Americans, "especial?
ly as Mi. Seward (as keen a diplomatist as any
country could desire) had accepted it as a final?
ity." Had the result been otherwise, the eci
tor intimates, ''tho United States would have
obtained a treaty which a good many English
people thought to involve excessive conces?
sions on our part." The article concludes as
follows : "If we are invited to discuss the
question of England's right to recognize the
Southerners as belligerents, it will bo for her
Majesty's Government to decide whether, after
all that has been said and written on the sub?
ject, it is worth while to renve that contro?
versy. There are limits beyond which national
courtesy cannot pass, and when we ore asked
to acknowledge that an ordinary act of national
sovereignty, necessary for the due security of
our own commerce, wis an offence against the
Americans to be expiated by apologies or
payments, there cannot be much use in dis-1
