EXECUTIVE OFFICE, ,

Mr. G.. F. Comfort, Mo. 2 Franio
sislie sfrasse, Berl?n, Prussia.
MY DEAR SIR: I thank you for !
your letter of the 30th of June. .
I shall use my best endeavor^to |
make my administration national/and .
Perverting power or influence to
partisan ends is only less crimiuaL
than attempting the nation's life. m
Our nation has come out of its four 1
years' struggle for existence strength?
ened and purifient, and with a capa?
city for a growth in the future -unpa?
ralleled in history. .
I am pleased to hear from so intel
Sgent an observer ns yourself that the
fact that our Government is a govern?
ment of the people-deriving all its
power from the people-existing only
for the people-is being appreciated
in Europe. .
I trust that our national success
may prove the success of popular
principles throughout the world.
I am, sir, verv trulv vours.

We are happy to ?be able to state

two colored. "All quiet along the Po?
As a specimen of a speech which
says nothing, the following, delivered
by the King of Greece to the Cham?
bers, in August last, may bo taken : "
"GENTLEMEN: I have received with
satisfaction the reply of the Chambers,
und ?hank it.forthe assurance it gives
me of its firm! intention to occupy
itself seriously with the bills which

ment, bearing upon ?he gpreat inte?

prosperity of Greece* be the sole ob?

The litt st news from Europe '(says
the Richmond* Times) fills us with
apprehensions with reference to pur
noble, impulsive and high-spirited
Irish friends. There.are many indi?
cations that they are on the eve of
another badly matured, and, -we fear,
rash t attempt to rid themselves of
English domination. There seems to
be imminent peril of a collision be?
tween, the Fenians /and the Govern?
ment. Bold demonstrations by the.
former have been made in Tipperary,
Limerick, Cork and Kerry, in which
Counties there are said to be at least
fifty.theusand Eenians, or sworn sol?
diers of the "Irish Republic"-a re?
public,, by the way, which the dilapi?
dated Palmerston, and that diplomatic
old fox, Lord John Russell, ?will be
as slow to recognize as they were the
Although the most versatile of mo?
der?, nations, yet no people upon the
4ve of an emeuele or revolution ever
xhibit less, cleverness aiid caution in
concealing their designs fiom their
oppressors. The symptoms of "trou?
bles in Ireland" have been the same
in every unsuccessful "rebellion"
since the days of Oliver Cromwell.
The Irish are too frank, impetuous
and impulsive to mature a fcticccssful
revolution,, Concert of action has
always been wanting, and the heavy,
relentless hand of the Government
?as invariably crushed their cot?Spira
cies before they were fairly hatched
. In many parts of Ireland, the Fe?
nians, are said to be collecting arms,
drilling, and organizing large bodies
of men, purchasing ammunition and
holding secret meetings. Th*e shoot?
ing of merciless landlords, excisemen,
-policemen, sheriffs, and of other va?
rieties pf legal vermin with which
Ireland is overrun, has not yetbegun;
but that laudable and most justifiable
and rational sport will soon com?
mence. Indeed, we doubt whethor
the annual outbreak of popular
wrath is near at hand yet, as our Hi?
bernian friends have not commenced
illuminating their proposed revolu?
tion by a. general conflagration fof
wheat-stacks and hay-ricks. .
Spite of the declarations of the
Pope that he woura, leave the cholera
to Providence, every precaution has
been taken in Rome; great cleanli?
ness enforced, and a strict surveil?
lance exercised over the sale of meat
and Vegetables. The-Lago, or flood?
ing of the Piazza Navona, has also
been forbidden this year, lest the ex?
halations might prove prejudicial to
the public health, and isolated wards
have been prepared in most of the
great hospitals for the reception of
any chance cases.
The Washington correspondent of,
the Baltimore Sun makes the fo?ow
. ing singular announcement : "At the
