Tbe effects of the unfortunate outbreak

Tbe government of tbis little commonwealth
is that of an aristocracy legislating by represent
ation. It Is formed of six political divisions,
aach of which is co extensive with one of Its
nirishes. Eich has Its subordinate, bnt dls
tinot, local legislature, formed of bcreaitary
land-holders. Tbeae bodies severally elect two
consuls, wbo form the executive io each divls
loo. and serve for a year. The supreme legis
lature consists of twenty four delegates of tbe
. .... I l. ! - . La
six inferior legislatures tour Deiug bcu uj
each of tbe local assemblies. These are tbe
two consuls for the current vear, and tbe two
next ex consuls in each division. This assem
bly, which psasessea tbe supreme autborlty,
sleets, again, two Syndics, who are the execu
tive of the republic. Ia practice, however, tbe
first Sjndic, commonly termed "The Syndic,'
transacts nearly the whole of tbe executive bus!
oesi of Andorre. But tbe republic has a com
plete administrative organizttioo without I
single paid public officer, and tbe largest pro
portionate military establishment ol burope
(such as it is) without a shilling of taxation
Tbe first credited tradition of Andorre dates
from 778. and the first written charter which is
known still to exist, from 801. In 778 two di
plomaa appear to have been Issued by Chasxk
maoni, tbe one granting to the see of Urgel
(beyond tbs frontier of Catalonia) the tithes
of the six parishes which now form the republic
tbe other granting tboir Inhabitants a distinct
military organisation. Ia 801, a fresh diploma
was issued by Louis, King of Acqultaine, ex
pressed to be made in the right of bis father
Ch.ilim.oni, and constituting the people of
Andorre an Independent state. The original
manuscript of this laat chnrter is still preserved
among the archives of the Republic.
According to the advice of their Emperor
tbe Andorrians instituted a protector, and their
choice fell on the nefgbboriog'Counta of Folx.
Ia 860, Cuaslis tbe Bald issued a diploma
wrongfully assigning the sovereignty of Andorre
which Chaiilkiiaon! had vested In the inhab
itantsto the Bishops of Urgel. But it was
never acknowledged in the republio. Hence
arose a war of Andotrlan Independence, which
lasted for the unheard of space of four hun
dred years. It took the shape of a triangular
contest between the Bishops of Urgel as pre
tenders, tbs republicans as lawful sovereigns,
and tbs Counts of Folx, nominally, as protec
tors. But, like nearly all protectors of that
age, the Counts merely ravaged the country they
professed to befriend.
Finally, la 1278, a picification was made, un
der which the Bishops and the Counts receded
from tbs contest, nnder the title of jjiot suzer
ains of Andorre; bnt their anthorlty soon sub
sided Into a mere co-protectorate. By tbe traoai
tions of time, it has come to pass that the
Emperor of the French and tbe 8panlsh Bishop
of Urgel are sow joint protectors of the repub
lic. Since 1278, no material change has occur
red to the little commonwealth.
A few worda as to tbe customs and condition
of the Andorrians must close this brief sketch.
Five times a year, on the occurrence of some
great festival of the Church (for the people are
all devout Catholics), the four and twenty rep
resentatives to the supremo Congress assembled
at tha village designated the Capital, to deliber
ate on publio affairs. Each delegate arrives
horseback, and a national stable with our and
twenty stalls Is prepared. " Each legislator puts
up bis borss with his own hands, attends divine
service ia the chapel, exchanges his peasant's
dress for tbs stateliestcostume, shoots partridges
and pheasants is summer, hunts bears and wolves
in winter, passes few laws, and ventures upon
Tbs dwellings of tht higher ' class of land
holders are of tbe rudest architecture, and

style of their Imperial patron and founder,
Two things seem effectually to protect the
Andorrians from the loroads of their mors cult!

S. S. Cox. We see from tho papers that this
once gallant Democratic Representative from
Ohio, who was so a! mails distinguished for his
efforts in trying to beat baok (be tide of Black
Republican fanatioism, has coma oat ana de
clared himself In favor of making war upon tbe
Sonth. We are almost ready to exolaim wltb

are unwillina- to fold our robes - auietlv and re
celve tbe stab. Come on, Mr. Cox; our steel is
ss sharp for you as it is for jour inrernal asso
elates. Louisiana Courier, .
Tbis is the sort of gratitude which Northern
Democrats are to receive from the -South, for
their efforts In behalf of the constitutional rights
of that section. It is especially unjust toward
Mr. Cox; for while he voted for every proposl
tioa of oeace. Inoludlng Coi win's and Carr
tindin's, he advised them in his speech of Jan
uary 14, 1861; of the feeling which would be
aroused by the first overt act of rebellion ana
treason. While he was anxions to avert tbis
war by every effort of pacification, he held that
'secession was not right In any poBBlblo rela
tlon, and that to tolerate it In theory or prac
tice was moral treason to patriotism and good
government." Ho urged, that if tbs Sooth
should go oat Inconsiderately, as soma States
were then going, the conn try would Inour the
fearful hazard of war. He advised tbem, while
making every effort to compromise, that the
government should bs sustained by all Its legal
fjreea. i - . . ....
While tbe Louisiana Courier compliments him
for his efforts against sectionalism, it should
remember that it has been the conduct of suoh
States as Louisiana which has placed tbe true
Union men of the North in the'.r present atti
tude. Mr. Cox warned them that tbe attack on
Sumter would open the dreadful and last resort
We quote bis language: '
"Bat what a danger is here! Once let tbe
a1tv tn this Government be broken, and wbo
oan restrain tbe exoessts incident thereto? If
tuck exeetut be commuted, there toouui be -reused
a martial spirit which, in ttuhing to the de

flag which has floated from Bunker liill to
Mexico. Hisdaath would open a guit in which
the people would pour, in vengeance and in
vain, their treasures and their children. -
How prophetic was this warning I If Mr. Cox
was right then, he Is right now. Bat tbis warn
ing came borne to Louisiana, la close connection
with ber material interests. When tbe Louisl
ana editor talks of tbe "war upon the South"
and the "Infernal associates" in that war, he
should remember the great fraud of Louisiana
in relation to tbe Mississippi, which Mr. Cox
oredicted would receive tbe protest of arms. He
sid: , ri ..
Or if a confederation South propose to control
tha mouths of tbe Mississippi and itsbinks, do
von believe It could be done witbout a protest of

A Silly Falsehood.
Tbe Cincinnati Commercial of Monday, in
main leader, connects the Ohio Statesman with
certain other papers named by it, as being
"very much exercised about tbe authority of
President for calling oat volunteers for three
years' service." There is nothlr.g la the world
so greatful to the Coemesreial as to tell a false
hood on the Statesman. '
Whan the telegraph first announced that
was the Intention of tht Government to make
second oall for troops, for three years' service,
we said there was probably some mistake in
matter, since , there was no law authorizing
such a call. In a day or two afterwards,
Proclamation ol'lhe President appeared. In
Proclamation it was expressly stated that the
and acceptance of volunteers under it wer
mads subject to the; confirmation of Congress,
when it should meet In July next. The Stattman
published that Proclamation, which fully ex
plained Itself and tbe conditions upon wbioh
second call for troops was made. From that
day to the present, tbe Statetman hss not at
time discussed 'the question of the authority
the President, or" In any way been "exercised
about" it, and the Commercial Is well aware
tha fact. Iu attack uoon tbe ffioteimsa,
(his connection, Is simply one of its periodical
ebullitions of malice, for whioh that paper is
notorious. Tbe eblsf editor of ths Commercial
it a lying scamp, so rone to falsehood and defa
mation that be eonnot tell tbe truth on tbe most
ordinary occasion. ..:
At tbe time that we expressed a doubt as
tha correctness of tbs telegrsphio report of the
contemplated call for three years' men, we were
not elope in discrediting it. The report did not
say that the plan and call were to be subject
the confirmation of Congress, ' and hencs tbs
opinion that it was without foundation.. .The

THE SECOND CALL.
' Ic none of our exchanges do ws any au
thoritative announcement of a second oall for
volunteer. Tbe New York papers gives as no
further Insight ; but special dispaten irotn
Washington to the Cincinnati Gazette Is as fol
lows: '-' "
April 30th. It has been determined to-day
to increase the new levy of volunteers, regulars
and sailors, to 83.000 men. and further to aooeot
25,000 men, on three months' servloe, over and
above tbe 7D,uuu originally asked for. The to
tal Dumber to be In arm oon is 183,000,
This Is a far different announcement from
that brought us on Tuesday by telegraph, via
New York; but It la In itself improbable. The
President has not the power, witbout tho con
currence of Congress, to add 83,000 to the Ar

decided noon. For this purpose a skiff was pro

Arsenal grounds under guard of four armed
soldiers commanded by Capt, .Cole. t Some
movement of the kind must have been suspected

LETTER TO GEN. HARNEY.
General WILLIAM S. HARNEY, Commanding the
Military Department of the West, St. Louis,
Sia lo common with thousands who have
perused your admirable proclamation of this
morning, 1 return you toe thanks or citizen of
Missouri tor its patriotio tone and tranquilizing
assurances, I hero is nothing in this paper
which in my opinion needs explanation: yet I
wish to be able to answer, witb the authority
of your name, a question which I have already
replied to on my own Judgment. Last evening
a gentleman of the highest respectability and
intelligence, irom ureene county, Missouri,
asked me whether I supposed it was the intent
tion of the United States government to in
terfere with the institution of negro slavery in
Missouri or any slave state, or impair tne se
curity of that description of property. Of course
my answer was most unqualifiedly, and most
Indignantly, In the negative. I told bim that I
had no means of forming an opinion which were
not Open to every other private citisen: but
that I felt certain that the force of tbe United
States would, If necessary, be exerted for tbe
protection of this as well as any other kind of
property. Will you be good enough to spare
from your engrossing military duties so much
time as may be required to say whether I aa
swered correctly? I have tbe honor to be, witb
tbe highest respect, yonr most obedient servant.

Thomas T. Ganntt, Esq.; St. Louis, Mo :
Bia I have just received your note of this
date, inquiring whether, In my opinion, you were
correot in replying to a citizen of Southwestern
Missouri as to tbe purpose of the United States
government respecting the protection of negro
property. I must premise by saying that I have
ne epeolal Instructions on tbis bead from the
War Department. Bat I should as soon expect
to hear tbat the orders of the government were
directed toward tbe overthrow of any other kind
of property as of tbis in negro slaves. ' I enter
tain no doubt whatever that yon answered the
q uestion yon mention correotiy, i snouia cer
tainly have answered it in the same manner, and
1 think with tbe very reelings you describe.
am not a little astonished that suoh question
couia oe seriously put. Already since tbe com
mencement of tbese unbsppy disturbances,
slaves have escaped from their owners, and have
sought reiuge in the camps or United States
troops from Northern States, and commanded
by a Northern Geneial. They were carefully
seat back to their owners. An insurrection
slaves was reported to have taken place in Ma
ryland. A Northern General offered to the Ex
ecutlve of that State the aid of Northern troops
under his own command to suppress it. Incen
diaries have asked of the President permission
to invade the Southern States, and nave been
warned that any attempt to do tbis will bs pun
ished as a crime. I repeat It, I have so special
means of knowledge on ibis subject, bat what
i navecitea, ana my general acquaintance with
tbe statesmanlike views of tbe President, make
me confident la expressing the opinion above
given, very respecuuiiy jour ooeaient ser
