The Kwtlonal JnhiiMn Civil?.
We liave already noticed the for?
mation of this elnb in Washington
city. The association, through it?
Chairman, Montgomery "Blair, ha?
issued an address to the people o!
the United States on the politics'
condition of the country. Its lengtr.
.prevents its publication in oui
columns, but an extract or two wil
yjive oar readers au iden of its tenoi
und purport. As to the radicals mu
their purposes,.it says:
' 'Now, the whole radical party hav<

usurpation shall only be recognizec

terms prescribed by an Act of Con
gress. This attains the point a
which the Essex junto-the high
Hying Federalists of the North
would, at the beginning of the Gov
ernment, have fixed the power of th
General Government. The who!
policy of this aristocratic body o
politicians has ever been, and is now
the consolidation of the supreiu
power in the hands of Congress. It
legislation is to pervade the State
and supplant that of their Legishi
tures. They make a full manifesta
tion of their design in their Freed
man's Bureau bill and their civ:
rights biD, by which they undertak
to establish a nation of negroe
among a nation of whites, and rende
'them independent of the laws an

Instead of Freedmen's Bun
with their expensive and anno
machinery, the address says, it w
bo much bet tor and wiser for tho

equality among themselves, establish
aCJovernnrent for" themselves, under
the protection and instruction of <?nr
great republic, where .they might at?
tain substantial independence, and be
stimulated by the highest motives to
cultivate the nobler faculties of man.
Thc publication and extensive cir?
culation of this address, wc trust,
will render good service in rousing up
the public mind of the North as to
thc pnrposes of the radical faction.
The exports of cotton from New
York, for the week ending April 17,
amounted to 21,7<>0 bales, valued at
83,f?97,51S, and since September 1,
1865, there have been exported 394,
538 bales, valued at. ?70,-000,000.
Thc w hole amount of cotton which
the South has given to the commerce
of the country is estimated by some
of the New York papers ot2,000;000 of
bales, which, at ruling rates, amount?
ed to something over 83,000,000!
This, the New York Herald justly
says, is equal to six or seven years'
production of the gold mines of Cali?
fornia and the other States and Ter?
ritories of the Pacific. Cotton is an
article of prime necessity, and?not
only employs millions of hands ant
hundreds of millions of capital, bm
takes the place of gold and silver ii
the exchanges of the world.. Tlx
Herald considers it great good fortuw
for the United States to find so mud
cotton in the South at the close o
the war, and remarks that had Ung
land been so fortunate as to discove
8300,000,000 in gold immediate!
after her exhausting war with Nape
leon, how easily sli'? would hav
passed through her tron?les!
These figures develop the gren
wealth and resources of the Souther
States under their former system i
j labor; now this system has been ovei
turned, the resources of the plantan
I interests so sadly crippled that it wi
be years (if ever) before they cn

Napoleon a.?d I?ruHslj? ---Tin KM ro?
pe M a Programme
The^ pamphlet recently published
in Paris, entitled "Napoleon IU, and
Prussia," sketches distinctly the pro?
gramme for the reconstruction of
Europe, to which we alluded a few
flays ago. lt may be tnken as an
indication of the purposes of the
Emperor of the French, and if it
argued strictly the advantages of an
alliance between France and Prussia,
it would be a deeply significant fact.
International flatteries, an entente
cordiale between two great powers, is
i at any time an ominous fact for the
peaee of Europe. Au entente cordiale
' means war. Alliances, such ns this
proposed, are the preliminaries of
aggression; and are especially a favor?
able means with the Emperor Napo?
leon for thc accomplishment of a
: great purpose. An alliance with
England secured the balance against
Russia for thc Crimean war; au alli?
ance with Victor Emanuel against
Austria secured the Emperor's objects
in Italy, and the alliance to be made
between France timi Prussia will lead
to equally momentous events.
According to the pamphlet, France
is not to take any active pavt in thc
1 war. The Empire is at peace'. The
j alliance is to make Prussia sure that
' France will not be against her. and
for this little assurance she is willing
1 to cede a "rectification of the French
frontier." Could an aUiauce be put
before the French people in anymore
tempting shape than this, fluttering
! the national vanity, offering territory
! and requiring nothing? As for the
advantages to be secured to Prussia,
they will excite sympathy rather than
objections in the French mind, for j
they are based upon detriment to i
Austria and the humbling of Haps-J
burg. This is the Ley-note of alli- ,
anec bet ween the two peoples. Here
is a point, on which France and l*rus
sia can fraternize far mon1 earnestly j
than France ever did with any other ?
power. To humble Austria is a tra?
dition of French history and the po- I
litical necessity of Prussia. This
appeal to the people is skillfully made,
and it' it shall stimulate ti Prussian
sentiment throughout France-if the
Emperor, who luis already arranged I
i the alliance, shall seem tobe forced
into il by national necessities, the
pamphlet will have accomplished all
it was intended to.
Must the expressions made here in
reference to the Rhenish frontier be 1
accepted as the Emperor's sentiments
on that subject? If Europe is to be :
shaken by a great war, with the terri- |
torial aggrandizement of Prussia for
its object, will France, ?is the ally of ;
Prussia, bc satisfied withn coal mine? ;
No one can believe it. lt is well
enough to say to Crerinany just now
that France only wants a eoal mine, .
and it is also well enough to promise
to the French people that they shall j
I uot be called upon for war cxpendi
* tures. By that means, both will con?
sent the more readily to this alliance; !
but by anti by ?.unforeseen" circum- '
stances will ?irise making it necessary
to change this simple plan. France
may be forced to arru and even to
occupy thc Rhine. There is no tell?
ing what may happen when war is
once begun; and if France does oe
cupy the Rhine while Austria and ,
Prussia are contending for the mas- j
teri', then, it' Prussia wins, she -will
have enough to leave those provinces ,
magnanimously to France, while, it I
Austria wins, France, i. self-defence,
will be compelled to hold the Rhine
as a natural frontier and safeguard
against the colossus. Thus, whoever
triumphs, France will get more than
a coal mine, though it is not expo-1
dient for ber to say much about it ut
Since Bismark is praised iu Paris ;
as tho "Richelieu of I 'russia, " and
accredited with having revived the
Schleswig-Holstein question "with
admirable ability," it cannot be longer
doubted that the question of the
Duchies is a mero pretext, that it is
brought in by Prussia only to give
her ti mond foothold for difference ;
with her great neighbor, ?iud that
war for the aggrandizement of Prus?
sia, and the abasement of Austria, is
the fixed programma of Bismark and
Napoleon. Tf the sentiment of hos?
tility to Austria shall run high in
France during this ivar, as it proba?
bly will, what is to become of the al?
liance between Napoleon and that
unfortunate member of the Hapsburg
family now in Mexico? France, sym?
pathizing with Prussia, will hat?'
Austria more than ever; can she.
then, at snell a time stomach un alli?
ance with *he Emperor of Austria's
brother, the more especially when
this latter alliance may embroil her
with the United States? No; and
this will be to Napoleon an additional
advantage of the Prussian alliance.
It furnishes a solution of his difficul?
ties in the Mexican muddle. His
withdrawal from Mexico will be forced
by the necessities of France, and this
is a plea that will render precipitate
retirement a virtue rather than a hu?
miliation.-JVetr York Herald, 21s/.

of United States regulars had arrived i
at that place, and others were expect?
ed, a portion of the 1st Artillery and 1
the 12th Infantry at Fort Hamilton
being already under orders.
The Fenian arrivals are not so nu- j

THE PHILADELPHIA MURDERER.
The fend Probst has been indicted
and arraigned for the murder of the
Deering family. It is understood
that Probst expresses a willingness to
plead guilty to the charge of murder?
ing Cornelius Carey. Tin- District
Attorney designs, however, to try
him upon the bill charging him with
the murder of Mr. Deering, which
shows the confidence of the Common?
wealth's officer in the strength of his
case without availing himself of the
pretended confession of the mur?
derer. From information received
from persons who belonged to the
same regiment and company as I
Probst, it is learned that he was a ?
bounty-jumper, who had entered the
service several times, and had re?
ceived large bounties. It is alleged,
also, that he shot his thumb off deli?
berately, in order to gain his dis?
charge. Among his comrades, his
character was anything but good.
