The Farmer's Spring Work.
The war excitement oi the past month and the
very wet weather combined, hare thrown the
formers of Ohio very much behindhand with
their spring work. The amount of land pre
pared for corn, tbns far, is unusually small, and
the lateness of the season renders It quit cer
tain that there will be a great falling off In the
breadth oi acres wbioh will be planted. The
weather is now delightful, and the exoitement
which prevailed among all classes is to some
extent subsiding,' end farmers should go to
work vigorously, determined yet to do all
that can he don to ensure ft fair
crop The labor of the husbandman will, it is
pretty certain, bring a good reward this yetr,
and the public necessities lo the future will, we
think, furnish an ample and ready market for
farm produce. Interest and patriotism combine
to nrge the husbandman forward, sod no doubt
much labor will yet be don, though it be lata,
to ensure plenty. ' -
ST Our neighbor of the Journal is very much
affected because the " popular prejudice in the
North " ie opposed to the us of negro troops
against the rebellion in the South. The refusal
of Gov. CniTiN to permit the negroes of Massa
chusetts to pass through Pennsylvania, and the
rejection by the Federal Government of the ap
plication of a Canada Regiment of negroes to
join the service, is not agreeable to our cotem
porary. It may be that the policy of the Gov
ernment, in this respect, discloses the reason
why none of the editorial corps of the Okie
State Journal are now in the ranks. If a negro
regiment was in the service, ten to on the
Journal would be represented; but as that will
not be tolerated, the country will be deprived
of the services of the experienced military men
connected with that paper.
IT The Senate of Kentucky has passed a
bill to suspend the functions of the Courts, ex.
cept for the trial of civil and penal causes, until
January, 1862, and requiring the return of exe
cutions issued sine January, 1861, to be re-Is
sued returnable to January 1863. These are most
extraordinary and radical changes in the judicial
proceedings of the State, designed, we sappose,
for the relief of the people, in the present finan
clal embarrassment. .The constitutionality of
such a law may well be questioned, and its ef
fect, should it pas the Hons, and go into ope
ration, will most probably prove the reverse of
what Is expected to be accomplished by those
who favor the measure.
ETTbe Cincinnati Oitetta of yesterdsy

a very abusive article against Col, Gsa.W.
McCook, designating him Colonel of th 3d

th Gazette should be so ignorant. CoL On, W.
McCook Is not th Colonel of th Regiment re
ferred to. His brother, J. McDowell McCook,
is Colonel of that Regiment, having been elect

Camp Jackson, be being an officer In th U. 8

and simply desire to correct the Qatttta in its
allegation that Geo. W. MoCook is tli Colonel

PROCEEDINGS IN PARLIAMENT.
Io the Hons of Lords, on the 29th nit , th
Earl of Malmeeburv addressed the Hons as
follows: My lords, in accordance with a pri
vate notice which I hav given to my noble
friend, the Under Seoretary for Foreign Affaire,
I beg leave to ask biro a question npon sub
ject whioh I am certain will be interesting, not
only to this country, but, I may say, to the
whole of Europe. Your lordships have all of
you, no doubt, read th account which bas ar
rived this morning from America, and must
hav seen with equal pain and some astonish
ment that civil war has at length broken out be
tween th aecessionlsu and the other States of
America.' Fortunately, up to this moment,
no blood, or hardly any blood, bas been shed,
and I think too much praise cannot b be
stowed on th commander of th fleet, who ab
stained from entering Into a uselees contest,
wbteh could only envenom the hostile spirit of
both parties. My lords, it is impossible that a
contest suoh as is now threatened so unnatur
al as It Is, and so fatal to the parties themselves
should not nave it reverberation tnrouga in
rest of the world t and no country, perhaps,
more than this is likely to suffer from that civil
war. Apart from tboe feelings wbioh we all
must naturally have of seeing with the deepeet
regret a deplorable contest between persons oi
the same family, or we came Diood, and of toe
same laotuage. our political and our material
interests are deeply involved in the queetion of
tbls unfortunate schism, now, myiorai, lean
not but believe that her Majesty's government,
feeling as all other of her Majeetv'e subjects
must do on this matter, must have already don
their utmost to bring about by official means
some arrangement which may avert so terrible a
calamity. 1 therefore wish to ask what faer
Majesty's government have don with regard to
thie subject; whether they have attempted yet to
prevent th quarrel between the different parte
of that country Irom coming to a Diooay msue
what hope tbey enteitaln of success in so laud
able a proceeding, and whether tbey have In
vlted or are in correspondence with any other
European government for tbe purpose or at
tempting to stop, at th commencement, a oivil
war. the end of which, if it is once begun, it
will be impossible! to foresee J
Lord Wodehouse My lords, I need scarcely
sav to my noble friend H at in common with
him, and I may say with every on of her Maj
esty's subjects, we bave seen with th deepeet
regret and concern the dissensions whioh have
taken place In tne United states; and we nave
reeeived with equal concern the Intelligence
which my noble friend bas seen, that these dis
sensions bave brought that' country already to
toe brink or civil war that civil war may now
be said to have already broken out. And, my
lords, as to the queetion whether any steps bave
been taken by ber Majesty's government to
arrest the epread of that great calamity for
great calamity no doubt it U, not only to the
Americana themselves, but also to others wno
are connected with them, aa we are, by tiee of
kindred ber Majesty's government bave anxi
ously considered whether there were any atepe
by which they might arrest so great a calamity;
but on mature consideration tney nave Deen
of opinion that it would not be desirable that
thla country should intrude its advice and coun
sel npon the government of the United States
(Hear, bear.) flaw ever great may DO tne
interest which w feel, and however anxious
we may be to avert thie misfortune im
pending over th United Slates, w yet
feel that a free and independent nation
might not welcome advice in ita internal
affairs. If that advice should be proffered with
out being asked for.
The instructions, therefore, which were given
to Lord Lyons were that upon every fitting oc
casion h should express the earnest desire oi
her Majesty's government that the differences
which prevailed between the Northern and
Southern State should bs arranged, but he bas
not been instructed to give either officially or
offloiously any counsel or advice, unless that
counsel or advice should bs aeked for by the
oontending parties themselves. That Is the an
swer which I bave to give to th question of my
noble friend, and it naturally follows that her
majesty's government are not, and nave not
been, in correspondence with any foreign gov
ernment as to the steps to be taken to prevent
th outbreak of civil war in th United States.
The New Levies.
Ia speaking on this subject, Forney's special
correspondent from Washington, nnder date of

Captain Meigs and the Slaveholders of Key
West.
WASHINGTON, Wednesday, May 8.
It will bs seen from th following memoran
dum, that the President acquits Capt. Meigs of
th complaints which followed blm from Key
West Jon bis return from reinforcing the forte of
the Gulf: i '
MEMORANDUM.
DEPARTMENT OF STATE.
Washington, May, 7, 1861.
The Secretary of State has oarefullv read the
letters of Hon. Wm. Marvin, Capt. Hunt, and
iiieui. morion, sent or submitted to blm by
Brig. General Totten. and has further rtnnlred
of Capt. Meigs an account of the transaction re.
f erred to In theee papers.
It appears, from the information thus obtain
ed, thai certain slaveholders at Key West, in
taw otw oi norma, a long lime ago, hired the
public agents of the Government a number of
slaves at very remunerative prices, to be am-
B loved aa laborers In tbe fortifications of the
oiled States, for a term of twelve years yet
unexpired. Of these, a certain number, not, it
is believed, exceeding twenty, were employed in
the fortifioatioa at Tortugas, when Col. Brown
arrived tbere, and having need of their help in
reinforcing end supplying Fort Pickens, be took
tbem to Peneacola, and employed tbem there In
landing stores from ths Atlantis and tha llllnnia
st Fori Pickens
It is not complained in th papers before me
that the maulers are not paid, or to be paid, lor
the labor of the slaves, and, on the contrary,
Capt. Meigs distinctly understands that tbe
Quarter-master is to pay the wages to the mas
ters of the slaves at Key West, as heretofore.
It is not pretended that the Quarter-master has
violated, or intenus to violate, the contract of
hire in any way. It must be entirely immate
rial to the muter whether tbe slaves work at
theToriugae, or whether they work at Fort
Pickens; both the plaoee are situated in tbe
State of Florida; tbey are alike safe under the
government in both oases, and should the con
trsctbe broken by the publio agents, the Presi
dent will take care to see that due redress is af
forded. I am not able to understand that
tbere is anything wrong or censurable in this
matter.
Some of the letters say that the masters of tbe
slaves hired tbem as laborers at Jtfferson, and
would not bave consented, il atked, to their be
ing sent or carried lo Fort Pickens. That spe
cial point is cot sustained by any proof. On
tbs other band, the contract was made yeare
ago, and for years to come, and though it is
assumed tbey were hired to labor at Key West,
tbey were nevertheless actuallv found laboring
at tbe Tortugas, without any objection on the
part of the masters.
It is not at all probable that the government,
when hiring men to work at ita fortifications in
one part of the State, stipulated that tbey should
not oe employed on another withm the same
State.
It is said in another letter that the trinaiotion
ia likely to be represented throughout tbe south
ern Statee aa negro stealing as a disregard by
tb government officers of tbe rights of masters
aa the commencement of a course ol Interfer
ence with slavery leading to its abolition as
tbe employment of slsves by tbe government in
acta of hostility sgaiost the masters aa forcing
uegro slaves to make war upoa tbe whites, 4c;
ana u mey snouid be placed under the fire of
guns without their consent, or tbe consent of
their masters, it might be represented as In
human. -
Tbsse are verv strained conceits. The nanera
show that lb colored men went from tbe one
port to tb other voluntarily and cheerfully.
i ney can in no case oe exposed to fire except
from th citisens of the State of Florida, In an
act of direct and unlawful war against theUniled
taies. &ren tneir return ol that fire could not
be an act of hostility against their masters, un
less mose masters themselves ebould be lound
voluntarily tbere in arme against, not only their
own slaves, but against the government and the
whole people of the United States a crime
which it is not;to bejeupposed they will commit.
Again, it is not to be presumed that the slaves
will bs compelled to become combatants at all,
except in a case where military necessity would
Justify making any persons found in the fort be
come combatants. It -la not easy to see that
tb negro slaves have anv greater right than the
free white persons to exemptions from tbe haz
ards necessary lor tbe publio safety in a time of
civil war.
Sckatob Johnson or Tinnissii Parson
Brownlow gives the following account of the
speech made at Knoxville, Tennessee, a few days
sgo, by the gallant and patriotic Senator from
tbat State:
Mr. Johnson cam ont manfully on the side of
his oountry in favor of tha enforcement of tbe
lawa and tbe preservation of tbe Union, at
whatever cost. He held np the movers and
originators of secession lo merited scorn and
contempt. He traced their treason back to tbs
days of Booth Carolina nullification a noted
General Jackson npon tbem argued the ques
tion oi secession, and, in a word, delivered ar
guments at once unanswerable and convincing
un mo pars oi me people.
Hi speech was received with great aonlauee.
and highly commended by men of talent who
nave never oeiore agreed with tbe Uovernor In
sentiment. While be avoided personalities, he
ueaiioui a lull measure oi luetics to tbe dlsso-
pointed politicians, designing demsgogues and
moat iraiiors seeking to oreak up the uovern
ment and destroy the oountrv. Meanwhile
th speech wm well calculated to allay, if not
totally to obliterate, every vestige of party as
perity which may have formed a lodgment io
toe nearis oi soy or. our people.

Affairs at Richmond.
Th Richmond Ditpateh of Saturday makes
th following sppeal to the Montgomery Gov
ernment: .,.
IS PRESIDENT DAVIS COMING?
We cannot too strongly prees npon the mill
tary authorities at Montgomery th import.
auce oi lueir eany presence in virgluia. Toe
battle ground or tbie great conflict ie to be npon
Virginia soil, sod no precaution should be omit
ted which could contribute to tbe sueceas at our
Southern arms,
- It is not to bs denied that Virginia bas been
taken at great disadvaotag in the sudden ont.
break of the war. However plain to the vision
of any of ber citizens might bave been the
faet tbat war was Imminently peoding, yet the
large majority or our people, and the public au
thorities, could not realize, and would not re
cognize tbe danger. , .
To consequences have been natural. The
war bas fouod us not fully provided with the
maaitlons or war and tb appointments of an
army, sod, what Is much more Important, with
out wall digested military organisation. The
work of organization baa bad to be perfected
exclusively by civilians. We bave a few officers
th Federal army la th line, and on or two
the staff, but except to latter, tb whole
military administration and th whole opera
tiooa or the staff are In th hands of civilians
loth bands of civilians who nsver saw service.
sever saw an snemy, and never conceived be
fore of military organisation In Its sclent I Oo
aspects, and la Us essential importance to the,
efficiency of a army, f ,,., .j7
"Wee to the Northern Battalions."
So says John Forsyth, In th Mobile (Ala.)
Register. Mr. Forsyth tells us bow this "woe"
is to come upon us: ' " V ' '
"Throughout the war, so far, not ons eot of
courage, not on symptom of generaisnip ana
soldierly leeling or ability have been displayed.
Lincoln himself la frightened, keeps up his
spirits by pouring spirits down, slseps with bis
boots on, and his oap and cloak' near at hand,
with his nalaoa filled with armed men to guard
his sacred person. The Government and the
military and the press In its eervioe are exhib
iting at every step unmistakable signs of tre
pidation. Oo of tbe strongest is the imprison
ment of Armr and New offioers for tbe crime
of resignation, and of citizens suspeoted of
Southern sentiments. For tbe rest, their might!
est military feats are Incendiary torches, ap
plied to arsenals and dockyards, and their hastl
ly flying under oover of darkness, smoke and
contusion.
Woe be to the Northern battalions that meet
tbe first shock and outburst of the fiery valor
and fierce Indignation that bave fused in one
comoaot mass the entire Southern mind and
heart. If the war last fir years, the term of
stars tout oe dictated at the safes of Bolton, isut
the war will not last so lung. The day is not
far distant when the North will sue for peace.
Until it does, tbe policy as well as the will of
tbe south Is to give tbem war to tbeir Heart's
content war to tbe koif and to tbe hilt."
The Southern Crop Prospects.
Tbe New Orleans Picayune, of Sunday last
ssys:
from all points in tbe cotton-growing region
we bave glowing reports of th growing crop of
our great staple, la soms few localities, tne
heavy rains bave somewhat injured the rop;
but even there th injury is not Irremediable,
and where replanting has been necessary, tbe
work bas been tnurgetically undertaken and
accomplished without delav. From all we can
gathpr in regard lo the growing crop, we feel
conn dent tbat with a favorable season nence
forth until it is gathered, the cotton crop of 1861
will be as large, or nearly so. ss that of last
year, while ia qualliy, the increaBiog care in
the choice of seed and the continual improve
ments in preparing tbe staple for market, as
sure tbe consumer that it will be fully equal, If
not superior, to snyofits predecessors.
Of corn, the accounts from every part of the
South are pregnant with promise of by far the
largest crop ever gathered. 1 be reports of tbe
condition and prospects of the wheat crop are
also of the most cheering character. So also of
all other crops, including fruit, of which there
is promise of unequalled abundance
from all parts of tbe sugar-growing region ol
Louisiana we bave very good accounts of tbe
growing cane, and with a favorable season un
til sugar-making time, there is reason to antici
pate that tbe yield tbe present season will be
large, and go far to compensate tbe planters
lor tbe denoiencies of tbe last two years.

The Newspaper.
How few, says the Philadelphia "Frees, ' who
resd it bestow a thought upon all tbe labor.
mental and physical, necessary to produce a
newspaper. The publio read it, as a matter of
course, without eay reflection upoa tbe beads
and bands which bave worked together to this
result, but are not slow nor silent in their con
demnation of the omission or insertion of even
a comma which changes the meaning of a sen
tence. Cowper spoke of tb newspaper as "tbe
folio of four pages." It is more it is a true
Microcosm a living history at once recording
and commenting upon events. Sick or well,
those whoee combined labor produces tbe news
paper must work at their constantly recurring
occupation. The labor of bisypbus was a baga
telle compared with Ibis. No allowance made
for headache or heart ache, or any of tbe thou
sand natural ills that flesh Is heir to.
There sre two sorts of excitement connected
with tbe production of a newspaper. Tbe first
soxious, feverish, Intense as much of appro
heosion as of belief, as much of fear as of hops
Tbs second calm and constant a mitigated
feeliog. Tbe first is experienced when a new
journal is being launched upon the world, sod
such so overpowering sensation it is, that one
might say:
"Moments like to thus
Bend man's lives Into Immortalities."
The other excitement occurs, more or lees,
on every day of editorial life. Tbe newspaper
man opens his own paper, each day. with a hope
tbat it is "all right," sod gives a great sigh of
relief, attar ce Das rapidly glanced over Its
columns, at finding everything in tbem exactly
as tncy snouia do.
A correspondent writing from Jefferson
City, Mo., on Saturday, says:
A member of tb Legislature remarked that
never, in tne oistory oi any state, bad sucb ty
rannical, det polio bills, taking away all rights
of the people, passed, as there bad been by tbis
Assembly since tbe reception of tb nets from
St. Louis. They would disgrace even South
Carolina. Tbe people of the State must expeot
toe worst invasions oi ireeaom ana rights. Af
ter the arrival of tbe papers last evening from
St. Lonls, the excitement somewhat quieted
aown.
A letter from Montgomery, In the Charles-
ion warier, says "Mr. Uavia bss no intention
ol Joining tbe army, though tbere is great snea
ulation about bis going to Virginia within a few
weeks, having in his train the Congress, tbe
uepirtments, and, in fact, all tbe machinery
of Government. Tbe beat Informed officials
think tbat the removal will surely take place.
At all events, there Is so much dissatisfaction
with Montgomery, that tbe seat of Govern
ment cannot remain long there. It may be
changed to Iluntsville or Atlanta, bat tbe Con
gress will probably Indicate Virginia as the
State, and Richmond aa tb Capital." .
Io these times of intense excitement, who
would have suspected tbat anv one would b

The Speech of John Bell.
We this morning republish from the Nash
ville Patriot what that journal pronounces "an
authoritative report of tbe aubstanoe" of John
Bell's speech at Nashville three weeks sgo.
Mr. Bell, as the discriminating reader will ob
serve, assumes the premises or th revolution
ists, end aocepts their conclusions, with suoh
reservations in both particulars as completely
do away with his position. Logioally, there
fore, tbe apeeoh amounts to nothing. . Praotl
oally, however, it la adapted to forward tbe
cause of revolution, and In the State of Tennes
see bas undoubtedly worked out Its natural ten
dency with considerable energy. What tbe
speech was designed to effect, we leave the pub
lio to determine for itself. If, Indeed, Mr.
Bell deems himself loyal to the Union, as wo
are assured he docs, we agree with the Nash
ville Banner tbat his ideas of loyalty to the
Union are unaccountably mixed." Tbey are
scarcely more clear than would be the ldeae of
safety entertained by one who should advise his
Imperrilled friend to leap from tbe edge of a
precipice wltb the purpose of stopping midway
of the abyss. Suoh ideas sra not suited to the
realities of human life. Yet they constitute
the staple of Mr. Bell's Nsshvllle speech. We
publish the speech, at no little inconvenlenoe to
ourselves, simply tbat we may avoid the shad
ow of injustice to one, who, whatever be may
be now, was so recently the standard-bearer
of tbe flower of the conservatives of thlsre
publlc a
a
LouietilU Journal.
The Missouri Republican comments as fol
lows on the recently issued instructions to Col
lectors at Bt. Louis and western ports in the
States:
"The blockade effectually dispels one of the
mischievous delusions which have tyrannized
over tbe Southern mind. It is now painfully
apparent to tbe most obtuse of tbe traitors, tbat
the Worth serves patriotism rather than Mam
moo; that it is mors solicitous to rlndioate tbe
Constitution and enforce the laws, than to keep
up the prioe of stocks, or to obtainia ready sale
for dry goods. Another more fatal error of the
southern mind tbe belief that the North will
not fight is also on tbe verge of annihilation.
It will last, perbape, until the loyalists and tbe
rebels cross bayonets, but not a moment later.
Tbe blockade will not bare the destructive
effect on tbe commerce of this State (so long as
we remain in tbe Union) which is generally
anticipated. Great quantities of provisions
will be required for tbe sustenance of tbe half
million men which the Federal Government
will bave in its employ ss soldiers, teamsters,
&c, before the end of tbe summer. Pork, es
pecially, will be needed by the Federal com
missariat. The European maiket will easily
absoib all the surplus grain of the West. Tbe
producers, commission merchants, and grain
aud provisions dealers of Missouri generally,
will, therefore, suffer very little in the long run
from tbe blockade, as loug ss the State contin
ues loyal. The change will be one rather in
the direction than In the quantity or profit of
n euieru commerce, mat wbicu nas hitherto
gone down the Mississippi, will now eo mainly

A Fugitive from Virginia—Opinions of the
Virginia Slaves in Regard to the War.
Yesterday afternoon, while a couplelof young
men, from tbis city, were perambulating tbe
woods In the vicinity of Newburgh. they were
suddenly startled by a huge negroJsprlDging np
from behind a log which lay in tbeir path, and
running away from them. They addressed him
kindly, when be stopped and allowed them to
approach bim. tie proved to be ft fugitive slave
from the neighborhood of Frederlckstown, Vi
ginia. lie said bis master owned about twenty
five slaves, who were employed la a mill. He
bad recently sold three of tbem to be taken
South, and tbe rest fearing a similar fate bad
made their escape, scattering about to avoid de
tection. Tbe fugitive was nearly starved, lame
and loot-sore, tie bad come over tbe moun
tains and performed the entire journey here on
foot.
He said the slaves in Virginia know there is
a contest going on between the North and the
South. They think the new Preeident of the
United States is making war for tbe purpose of
setting all the elaves at liberty. He says that
beliet exists very generally where be cams
from. Cleveland Plain Dealer, May 13,
Ttaaoaisai in Nrw Obleanb. A gentleman
who lolt New Orleans oo the 7th Inst, reports
that great alarm sod anxiety prevail there, not
only with regard to the vast preparations and
the enormous power which tbe federal Govern
ment is putting forth to crush tbe rebellion, but
ai.-o with regard to tbe negroes. 1 he terror on
this latter subject is greater than even oa the
former. Seven hundred men are in arms every
night to guard the cityagainstan outbreak. On
Sunday mght, the 5th Inst., eleven steamboats
and other vessels were burned at the levee; their
value is set down by the New Orleans papers at
jiuu.uuu, out, according to our Informant, it was
really $250,000. The most interesting feature
of this event is altogether ignored by our New
urieans cotemporanes, tnouga tbere was nobody
in tbe city who felt any doubt oa the subiect.
This is, that the incendiary who caused tbis
connagration was a slave. . , .
Great Toriuoo im South Cabolina Pbo
rERTT DisTaoTin. On tbe night oi the 6th
instant, a terrible tornado passed over a portion
of South Carolina, in the vicinity of Orange
burg. A large number of dwellings were blown
down, the crops destroyed, end several slaves
killed. A letter to the Charleston Mercury
saye:
"Tbe course of tbe gale extended for dis
tance of twenty-five miles, and the width of tbe
path of th whirlwind was about a quarter of a
mile. Tbe roar of tbe tempest was frightful.
When first seen the whirlwind was red, but soon
after it became very black. Ita power was won
derful, and It bore heavy fragments of Dr. Jen
kins' houses more than two mile from the site
Of tb houses. In traversing the wood it twisted
up and prostrated the largest pine trees ia every
direction, and ia one instance it tore up a stone
wan enure, leaviug it with its foundations high

The Pclnt oit the Was. The Rev. Mr.
Van Dyke, of Brooklyn, whose anti abolition
eermon bas excited so much attention, preached
last Sabbath morning on the state of the conn.
try, setting forth, in strong terms, the duty of
euBiaining tne union, tne uovernment and the
flag of the country. He adhered, be said, to tha
opinions set forth Io tb sermon, on slavery,
preached some months since: but while he re
cognised tbe right of revolution, be repudiated
tne meory oi secession, and insisted tbat when
tb laws were resisted, and the authoritv of th
magistrates contemned, it was the duty of all
citizens io rany io me support oi the uovern
