' We doubt if, in the hi$o*? :]of
England, ber Government ?f&f com
milted a greater blunder than that of
hanging those ?uree uufortunftte men
at Manchester. However, "wild and
Tricked may have b>ffc the assaults^
' the Fonians, and however much tho
Government may have desired to
maintain its authority und provo its
power, still tho execution was a mis?
take;.and if it waa meant tb strike
terror into the ranks of the brother?
hood, the ? subsequent attempts at
outrage provo that it was a failure in
that respect. And now England hos
to listen to the severe comments not
only of the press and politicians of
this country, but to the sneers and
tennis o? her neighbor across * tho
? channel. This act is as severely and
earuc^tly denounced in France as it
is here, and some of the French
?riters deal with-it as passionately as
if the men executed "were French?
men. The Opinion Nationale says:
"The same men ivho absolved Eyre,
the hangman of Jamaica, were bound
to hang the three Fenians of Man?
chester," and thinks "there is to bo
seen in this act the orthodox spirit of
Cher eh and State." Louis Blanc
writes in bitter sarcasm to Le Temps,
that the execution was a question of
inspiring fear ia the Fenians, and to
prove that tho Government itself was
not a bit afraid. It filled Manches?
ter with troops, posted a strong re?
serve of cavalry behind the prison,
armed 3,000 constables, barricaded
the streets, and made preparations to
defend the hangman with cannon.
"These men," he says, in conclusion,
"ore sent to the gibbet to strike ter?
ror, and yet it is you who aro shiver?
ing with fear. Infantry, artillery
and an army of constables-what for?
To protect Culcra!t, the hangman,
who protects you!" England is just
beginning to realize that she added
blunder to infamy when she Buffered
4he Manchester hangman to protect
But tho recent intelligence from
England, gives some ground to be?
lieve that there is still hope for
Ireland. There is almost a universal
feeliug among the English people
that Parliament should, at its next
session, take earnestly into considera?
tion tho state of affairs in Ireland,
with a viow tb the amelioration of
the eondition of tho people of that
country, considering that to bo the
most effectual inodo of suppressing
the brotherhood and quelling the
spirit of discontent. Even'the Lon?
don Times, no particular friend of
Irelaud , or the Irish, it is stated in
the cable despatches we have pub?
lished, is urging that-the next session
ol /Parliament bo.principally devoted
to the consideration of Irish affairs.
' This-ohange in tho tone o? tho press
and people of England, forces the
* belief upon us, that Fcniauism will
yet likely be of' benefit to Ireland,
and iii Ihe right way. Blowing up
jails, mnrdering policemen, and dis?
turbing the peace in various ways,
were very foolish acts in themselves,
but they aro likely to produce fruits
which, in the end, may prove more
healthful and beneficial to Ireland,
than any revolt against England,
which, under present circumstances,
must result in failure. But it is very
likely that the very outrages so loud?
ly and so justly condemned, will
prove to be a guido in procuring a
lasting reform for n people so long
misgoverned by tho statesmen of
-? ?? ? ?
The condition of the Country.
But few of tho readers of their
^ 'local newspapers aro fully acquainted
with tho wide-spread, ruinous de?
pression in every branch of industry
that exists at prosent in every nook
and comer of industrial enterprise
thronghout tho country. We will
endeavor, iu this article, to give thom
some information on tho subject,
gleaned from the press of tho various
Beetions of the country.
In two Now York leading journals
of the latest dates-tho Herald and
the Times-we find longthy edito?
rials on tho condition of tho South,
as presented by tho official report of
Gen. Gillern to Gon. Ord, in rolntion
to the sad state of affairs in Missis?
sippi, espectally with regard to the
present and futuro prospects of the
freedmen. Speaking of this report,
w??*?l. .ii i'i ?.'ii. t I ? Mi-us' j j
f?eraJdbxjp ol the latter:
"Tbey'are all driving on fro? bad
to worse, and unless some speedy and
comprehensive measures of relief and
reform are intorpqeed, the civilized
"jtforld, within a few short months,
tpay bo shocked with the i-evivai in
the great republic* of those horri?
ble suenes of St. Domingo, which
marked the African movements there
for negro equality and negro supre?
SrJeaking of the effect of alt this in
its own section, the HeraUL iu the
same articio, says:
"And what is the Btate of things in
\ the North ? Our merchants are doing
little Or nothing, though selling at
less than cost; our manufactories, to
a ruinous estent, aro suspended or
ont down in their ' operations; our
mechanics, in still increasing num?
bers, are thrown out of employment;
the unemployed and the destitute in
all our great cities are more numerous
nnw than they Lr.T? been in any
month of December for thirty years.
Hard times is the general cry, and
before they can be better, there is a
general apprehension that they will
e worse. There is no confidence in
the present head of the national
Treasury, and there is no confidence
of any substantial or reasonable re?
lief from this radical Congress."
The New York Times, in its article
on General Gillem's report, says:
"The most alarming circumstance
in connection with this position of
affairs, is the absence of all signs of
improvement. The troublo has no
visible outlet. *No thoroughfare' is
written as plainly by events as by the
pen of Dickons. Tho planters are
neither willing nor able to repeat the
unprofitable experiment of cotton
cultivation on this year's basis. The
prevailing determination is for a time
to abandon cotton culture, or to
make it subsidiary to surer and
cheaper crops ; and as corn requires
only a fifth of the labor which is
necessary for cotton, General Gillern
estimates that 'four-fifths of the
laborers required lost (or this) year,
will bo thrown out of employment,
and, of course, there will bo a corres?
ponding decrease of wages.' Even
then the planters will have a hard
task to pull through till next harvest.
With little property besides land,
they are in debt to merchants on ac?
count of this year's supplies, and
have, therefore, little credit; and
capitalists outside of the Stute will
afford no help in tho present unset?
tled condition of the South. Nor is
there much likelihood of immigra
tiou from the North. Of the North?
ern mon who remained in the South
wheu tho war closed, or who went
thither under an expectation of sud?
denly growing rich by cotton cultiva?
tion, nearly all are ruined. Tho for?
tune they wooed so hopefully has not
rewarded their enterprise."
Tho Times says truly, that thc most
alarming circumstance is that there
is no sign of improvement in this
condition of affairs. But wheu it
says that the trouble has no visible
outlet, wo think it is mistaken. That
outlet can be opened by the people of
the North and West rising up in their
strength and might, demanding from
Congress the re-installation of the
Southern States in all their rights,
privileges and immunities as mem?
bers of the Federal Union. The
people of these States are powerless;
but if those of tho North and West,
who aro now suffering from the evils
they havo brought, not only upon the
South but upon themselves, were to
unite in some concerted mode of ac?
tion and make that sturdy demand
which freemen have a right to make
sf their public servants, the wild
legislation of Congress would soon
bo put a stop to and the country, in
timo, be restored to peace and ulti?
But New England itself, the hot?
bed of that fanaticism which has
sent this whirlwind of desolation all
over the country, is also reaping the
bitter fruits of her madness and
folly. History repeats, with distinct?
ness, what the eminent writer,
Fronde, says, iu tho following para?
"Tho world is built, somehow, on
moral foundations; that in tho long
run it is well with tho good ; in the
long rnn it is ill with tho wicked;
that justice and truth alone endure
and live; that injustice and falsehood
may be long-lived, but dooms-day
comes at last to them in French revo?
lutions and othor terrible ways."
"Dooms-day," from all appear?
ances, has come even to New Eng?
land. Tho Boston Post1 has nu article
on tho declino of tho trade of that
city, as signally illustrated by tho
withdrawal of tho Cunard line of
steamers, that for over twenty years
have been visiting that port regular?
ly. Besides. tho lamentation of tho
Post, we extract tho following from
an article in a leading mercantile
paper of the same city-tho Commer?
cial Bulletin. It says:
?Hv^Jk??o*part of th? country i*>tati
dnstry fct so lo* an' ebb, capital BO
unromunerative in ito , inveatmeuta,
and their' joint products sb poorly
paid for, as here tn New England, at
the present time. The special ties of
oUr skilled labor, which-were once a
source of wealth to the capitalist and
profitable employment to th? people,
uro now a drug in the market, and
refuse to go into consomption at ony
price. "They are relatively muon
cheaper than the agricultural pro?
ducts of the West and South,' or the
raw material products of the Middle
States. Not only ure our maun facto?
ries closed, or runniug ou short
timo, and our mechanics and laboring
meu by thousands thrown out ol
employment,. but our commercial
.clasues are suffering immense losses
from the stagnation of trade and
shrinkage in merchandizo values.
The latter are obliged to 'carry' not
only tho products of New England
commerce and industry, but also, to
a great extent, thoso of every other
section ol the country. Hence upon
their shoulders the depreciation in
pri?es principally falls. And the
situation with us is rendered still
more severe and trying, from the
fact that our foreign commerce and
its dependent interests continuo in a
depressed and crippled condition.
In fact, tho noble race of importing
and shipping merchants, once the
pride and boast of our New England
sen-ports, whoso ships ploughed thc
waters of every sea and poured into
our markets tho wealth of every
clime, are now, alns! falling into
comparativo decay. Our mercantile
mariue, swept from the ocean during
the late war, iuvolving a loss of mil?
lions of capital not shared by any
other section of the country, shows
no sign of recovery from the blow."
We have shown what tho condition
of things are in two sections of tho
country. Of the South it is needless
to speak-she is on the verge of. nin.
But the general impression seems to
exist, that the great West, the graiu
and provision producing section of
the country, is much better oft' than
the others. But the New York Ex?
"It is not nt all so. The community
is ono body, and when ono member
suffers, the others feel it. Complaints
come thick and inst from Illinois,
Iowa and other sections of the North?
west. There is universal distrust and
universal stagnation in trade. The
farmers and mechanics buy nothing
of the country merchants; the coun?
try merchants, consequently, cannot
pay the Chicago and St. Louis whole?
salers; and these latter fail to meet
their obligations to the New York
jobbers. Money is not to bo had.
No one dare venturo into any manu?
facturing or commercial enterprise,
because of the uncertainty of the
financial future. No business, how?
ever well planned and well managed,
can be safo so long as this uncertaiu
ty continues. Distrust is the mortal
foe of enterprise, and distrust can
only be removed by the adoption of
some fixed financial policy by Con?
Wc have thus presented to our
readers, from a few of the exchanges
on our table, the terrible condition
and utter prostration of all business
enterprise, in every portion of tho
land. It is no wonder that the hopes
of tho most patriotic and sanguino
aie fast giving way to despair. What
the end will be, God only knows, and
to Him alono can we now look for
succor and salvation.
Fuost WASHINGTON'.-The Wash?

The Russian purchase threatens to
cost us, in addition to thc $7,000,000,'
tho loss of about four companies of
United States troops. Despatches
have been received at the War Oftico
within tho last few days, stating that
the soldiers seut to take possession of
tho icebergs aro in a most destitute
condition; and no preparations what?
ever had beon made for their recep?
tion, and that tho prospect is that
they will bo frozen to death or maim?
ed for lifo beforo supplies can reach
them. Gonerals Grant and Sher?
man had a consultation a few days
ago on tho subject. General Grant
stated that he had had nothing to do
with tho affair, that tho President
ordored the troops there, and that
ho had no authority to act. It ap?
pears that there is no way now to
relievo them, and that all access to
our Northern paradise is barred by
tho eternal snow and ice. General
