The United Sutes Constitution does not pre)

capacity, from letting off ny eurplus excitement

,.it. tmMA end inconelstant thing. Ail this
ma be leeitlcaate amusement, end psrt tnd per.
eel of thst "Urge liberty" whloh to guaranteed
to all Amerioen elt'iens. Suoh aots may seem
to imply that the Federal Government bti not
noted in rood faith toward the complaining par
ties but the Government does not prosecute for
either written or verbal slander of Itself. Iu
eta are snbmitted to the final j udgment of the
whole Amerksan people, and from their decision
there is no appeal, ,
..But however innocent and harmless an ordl
nsnoeof secession may be err s, and as revo
lution on paper merely, yet when citizens, acting
under the delusive notion that it has the force
and validity of paramount law, seize tbe publio
nronertv of tbe United Sutes and resist tbe exe
eution of the Federal laws, they become rebels
nd traitors to the Government to which their
primsry allegiance is due, and must be dealt
with accordingly. They bave tnen vioiaiea mat
whioh to established and acknowledged by the
sovereign people ol this country as the supreme
law of the land. They may attempt to Justify
their rebellion by gasconading about vindicating
the right of self-government; but they alma
deadly, though Impotent, blow at that right,
when they refuse obedience to the Constitution
which tbe American people have esUbllshed
upon tbe basis of their sovereign will, for the
protection of every individual, corporate and
State right.
It baa been said that tbe loyal citizens of tbe
United States are contending for an idea that
la, against tbe theory that a State has the right
to secede. This, we take It, Is, as to tbe mass
ol the people, a mistake. Tbey cue little what
theories politicians or political philosophers may
entertain about the right or wrong of secession,
provided alweyr, that there Is no overt act of
rebellion or treason against the United States,
the Constitution and tbe laws. It is such acts,
and such only, that have roused in the people
the determination to maintain the Constitution
and preserve the Union, at any price and at ail
haiirds. s v.
Fugitive Slaves.
, .' Tbe census of 1800, compared with that ef
. 1859, shows some curious facts in regard to the
ejomnaratlve number of fugitive slaves. It so
pears that, although the slave population In i860
eras 749,196 greater than in 185U, tbe number
of fugitives from service was one-fifth lee.
The extot number of fugitives lo 1850, as given
In tbe returns, was 1,011, or one in every 3,165;
In 1860, 803, or one in every 4.918. '
Tae fct is also ahown that tbe Border Slave
Sutes, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Ken
tucky and Missouri, lost but 452 slaves in 1860,
against 541 in 1850. In but seven or the fif
teen alare Sutes was there any loo-ease In the
number of fugitive, and to most of these that
Increase was trifling. . . ' ,

The Republic it very ready for an excuse to
abandon Its hypocritical professions of "no par
ty." The movement in Holmes county ! suf
ficient in Its view to put the Republicans of Ohio
on the alert "to meet tbe opposition and main
tain the supremacy of Republican principles In
the StaU." In reply to the Cadis organ, we
would say that the conventions recently held in
the 7th and 13th Districts', by the Republicans,
show that the managers of the party need do ad
monitions from It on the subject. Aa to that
party malnUinlng the supremacy In Ohio, that
is an Impossibility.
What "Occasional" Thinks.
Tbe Washington correspondent of Forney's
Prt$$, In his letter of May 31 ,' says: . ' , ;
I think It will appear that the British Gov
ernment will take advantage of ever opportu
nity to throw obstacles in tbe way of our Gov
ernment, in order to belp the Southern Dis-
nnionists. Lord John Russell eeeme to bave
adopted cotton for hie rule of action instead of
conscience, ana, to pieaee tae commercial ana
manafaoturing interesu of tbe British realm,
will, I fear, proceed to any lengths to compel a
diehooorable settlement of our Internal trouble.
or to throw the preetige of bis position in favor
of tbe Southern rebels. He, and those In whose
name be epeake, will undoubtedly be presently

The Effect of War.
If the following etatement of tbe effect of
war npon the interesu of the people of Great
BriUln, during a period is which ahe was In
volved In a very serious war, be correct, the
people Of the United States need have no special
conoern about their material Interests during
the existence of the present war. We copy from
Alison's History of Europe: '
NotwttbsUndlng the unexampled difficulties
which had beaet the British Empire in tbe years
1799 and 1800, from the extreme severity of
the scarcity during that period, and tbe vast
expenditure wblcu tbe campaigns ol these two
tears bad oooaeioned, tbe condition of the
Empire In 1801 was, to an unprecedented de
grre, wealthy and prosperous- Tbe great loan of
iweoty-nre miutooe oi mat year was oorrowea
at a rate of Interest under six per cent., al
though loans to the amount of above two bun
dred millions had been contracted In the eight
preceding yean; the exports, as compared
with what tbey were at tbe commencement of
tbe war, bad tripled, and the ImporU more
than tripled, in addition to tbe vast sums of mo
ney which the nation reqaired for lu loans to
foreign Powers, and pay menu on account of Its
own lorcee in loreign pans, nearly a lourtn
bad been added to the tonnage of the chipping
and tbe seamen employed lo it during tbe same
perlodi while tbe national expenditure bad risen
to above sixty-eight millions, of which nearly
forty millions were provided from permanent or
war taxes. Contrary to all former precedent,
tbe country bad eminently prospered during tbie
long and ardueua struggle. Notwithstanding
tbe weight of lu taxation, and tbe Immense
sums which had been squandered In foreign
loans or cervices , and, of course, lost to tbs
productive powers of Great Briuln, the industry
or tne nation, in au its orancnes, naa prouigi

abundanoe for all the innumerable undertakings,
both nubile and private, which were going for

the nation on foreign supplies wea rapidly di.
minlebed; and yet the United JUngdom, which
bad added nearly a sixth to lu inbabiunts
since 1791, numbered about fifteen millions of
souls In the British lules, 'Tbe divlsiono and
dieaffectlons which prevailed during the earlier
years of tbe war Bad aiotoetentireiy oissppear
ed; tbe atrocities of tbe French Revolution had
weaned all bnt a few inveterate Democrats from
Jscobinlcal principiee; the Imminence of tbe
publio danger had united the great body of the
people in a strong attachment to tbe national
color) tbe young and active party of the popu

mencement of tbe contest, and Imbibed wltb
their mother's milk tbe entbueiastlo feelings it

The War from a Commercial Point of View.
[From the London Times Article.]
The favorable tendency of the eommorolal
symptoms continuee to be checked by each pew
arrival irom Amerloa, and as one ot tbe latest
telegrams received on Saturday announoee that
inertia ot exchange bad reoeded lQ,llb,
that stocks were etill falling, and that commu
nication wag qui off .and business entirely
suspended, many persons will be disposed to ap:
preoeaa another heavy dram ot gold irom this
side, tnd further serious Injury to all depart
ments of trade. Tbese alarms, however, will
subside with a little e xamiuatbn. Tbe power
of America to draw gold from us is to bs meas
ured precisely by ber ability to send us some
thing tbat Is the full equivalent of void Now,
the greater part of tbe cottou shipments oi tbe
season have been already effected, while, as re
gards grain, everything will depend on tbe pros-
oscu or our own burvest, ana we snau not uxe
Irom Amerloa a single bushel more tban we re
quire, whether she is at peace or war The only
difference that war can make in mat respect win
be tbat our shipowners will get tbe preference for
carrying, and therefore tbat, ae far as freight Is
Involvedi the amount of our remltunces In pay
ment will be proportionally lessened. If it be
eald tbat tbe panlo throughout the country will
Induce nil possessors of produce to hurry it for
ward as fast as possible for realization, the an
ewer ie that, uuder the Influence of our bigb
prices, tbe resources for transport by railway and
cabal were previously taxed to tbe utmost, and
that tbe effect ol domestio anarchy must be rath
er to lessen than to extend the ordinary facili
ties. Again, if it be urged tbat tbe existence
of war will totally preveut the Amerloana from
taking any of our goods, and tbat consequently
our prospeois will now bs worse than tbey bad
been made even by the Morrill Tariff, the answer
is equally consolatory. Tbe assumption that tbe
Americana will import no Eutopcan goods, and
Uke nothing but gold for all tbe produce they
may eend to ue, would simply Involve a reversal
of all tbe common experiences of war, domestio
or foreign. ' The usual consequeneee of war are
the Impoverishment of a cjuutry, irom its ex
penses being greater tban tbe iucome from iu
productions: but if, on the contrary, we are
now to see It attended by a steady augmen
t.uion iu metallic .wealth, and a eonse
qucLt plethora in tbe money market, the
anomaly will be presented ol a State In
creasing in financial solidity lu tbe midst of de
vastation. Already the rite of discount in
New York bas fillea below any former prece
dent, and If this Is to go on from a further flood
of gold arrivals, tbe only inconvenience felt by
the mercantile community will be tbat of an
overabundance of resources, especially as tbey
will be enabled to liquidate any old engagements
on tbie eide at a moat convenient and promanie
rate of exchange. Of course, such a condition
of affairs may prevail temporarily, but tbe ul
timate notion must be entirely tbe other way.
Tbe employment of British In place of Ameri
can vessels Is an Instantaneous indication of
this; and other evidences will soon follow. Tbe
waste of material from modern warfare bss
recently been too well ascertained; and all this
waste In America must be supplied by impor.
tations, unless it is to be Inferred that at tbe
hour when a large portion of tbe valuable 1
bor ot the country is transferred to military
dutle, the labor available for manufacturing
and productive objects will be greater than ever
la tbe South, a 3 UUU.UUU loan bas already
been raited for the purpose of paying for the re
quisite supplies, and tbe tariff in tbat eection
will present no difficulty to their admission
In tbe XV oitn, where tbe expenditure will be still
greater, the Morrill tariff, which seems to bave
been Iramed for tbe promotion of smuggling,
must become a dead letter; elnce an efficient
watch on all tbe coasts and poru must, la tbe
existing confusion, be out of tbe question. In
every way, therefore, the conclusion is forced
upon us tbat so lar Irom tbe present rush ot
evenu being calculated to draw away our means
and btiog embarrassment on tbe London Money
Market, it Is likely to bave a directly opposite
result, w bile there was a possibility of bostili
ties being avoided, and tbe people were still at
tending to tbeir ordinary labors, and practising
unwonted economy Irom tbe dread or contin
gencies, it was easy to tee that the pecuniary
balance would for m certain time be heavily
against ni. Tbe transmission of American ee-
curitiee to our market lor baaty realization
may even now for a short period aggravate tbat
tendency. To those, however, who look beyond
tbe moment, it must be plain that everything In
tbe late advioee lends, so far aa tbe bullion
question Is concerned, not sgalnst, but in favor
or our prospects; but these accounts are not for
tbat reason the lese deplorable.

Letter Marque Debate in the House of
Lords.
In the House of lords on the 10th of May,
the Earl of Derby eald that he understood that
her Majesty's government had Com to the) con
clusion that toe Southern States of America
were to be considered us a belligerent power,
and bad rei erred certain pointa to tbe consider
ation of the law officers of the Crown. Tbe
Southern Confederacy had sent out lettere of
marque lor the purpose of covering tne sea
with privateers, but the Northern Sutee had
declared an Intention Of treating privateers as
pirates. He wished to oall tbe attention of tbe
government . to the position In' whloh British
sailors might be placed, for if there wan one
thing that bad attractions for Itbem, it waa pri
vateering, it waa also desirable that tbe British
merchants should know in what position they
stood as neutrals, and also that some declara
tion ebould be made with respeot to Brltitb
subjects becoming privateers. He believed tbat
tbe latter wee a criminal onence, out tne possi
bility of this country beiog involved in tbe dls-
puu between tbe two sections ol the American
States was so serious tbat he sincerely concur
red in tbe prayer or tbe noble lord (JUordJ.

would give a most dtsiiuct and emphauo warn

barl Uranville . said that be oulte agreed in
the appreciation which the noble Earl . ahowed
or the serious oonsequences of this country be

Tbe noble Earl had correctly understood tbe

ment would issue oroeiemation of toarnieo to
Btiliih oubjteu, but it teas 'aVitreifo that tht
warning of tho proclamation thould be eattfully

Tbe Earl of Derby said that he wished to
know tr it would bs distinctly declared tbat any
Urttiah subjeot Joining in privateering must not
iook to bis government to save bim irom nis
own criminal acta. - '
Earl Granville apprehended that this would
lot tow naturally irom tne proclamation. ,
Liord Brougham severely aenouneea tneprsa
tioe of privateering, and expressed in a few
brief but eloquent sentences his sincere regret
tbat by mutual concessions tbe horrors oi
oivil war were not likely (o be averted In
America ' ' ''
Lord Colchester reminded their lordships tbat
the right to send out privateers was reeogbized
by international law, and It was only natural
tbat tbs weaker state should resort to this mesne
of annoying a more powerful enemy. ' '

From Mexico.
Our dates from Mexico city are to the S6ib
nit By a decree of President Juarez, tbe
President's salary, which has been $36,000 a
year, ts reduced to $30,000. The Minister of
Finance has directed the Custom Honse offi
cials to prevent the exportation of gold and
silver bullion, no matter nnder what pretext.
Tbat gentleman bas eiuce resigned, and been
succeeded temporarily by Senor Mate, (April
23) wboso first measure, according to tbe
tieraldo of tbe S4ih, was tosospend all Govern
ment psymenu. The tax imposed on the osp
ltal for etreet cleaning and paving is complain
ed of as very onerous. The Monitor mibiishes
a letur from tbe town ol Paso del Norte, in
Chihuahua, euticg that a band of filibusUrsjare
collected on tbe banks of tbe Rio Breve, threat
ening an invasion of the frootler States, for
tbe purpose, it Is supposed, of annexing those
States to the Southern Confederacy. Congress
was expeoted to be In session the flret week of
the preeent month. Tbe Heraldo speaks of the
daring moremenU of cerUin reactionists, even
in tbe neighborhood of tbe capital. Of course,
tbe Impoverished and par el j zed Government
gets abused soundly for permitting to exist
what It bss not tbe means to ornsb. Dates
from Vera Cms are to the 81 ioataot. No ad
