that,, to human flew at least, Ihey appear full
of Imperfection In th detail. All thing and

Each member of the Convention that framed
the Constitution, bad In bis mlod tfie Ideal of a
perfect Government) but it was iouad that no
one of tbeee was adapted to the condition of the
oountry, and tbe Constitution was framed and
the-Union finally consolidated by a fusion

It may be .pardoned, perhaps, If, in our over
flawing patriotism, we talk on the Fourth-of-
July about our perfect system of Government.

;; As oar fathers were united In one object In
tbe Revolutionary War, namely, to gain their
national independence j us tbey united in one
object in forming tbe Federal Constitution,
namely, to establish, not a perfect, but "a more
' ' perfect Union;" eo vre moat'noir,'lQ this pre
' ent momentous struggle, nulte in on great ob'
ject not to make the Union our fathers formed
the most perfect that can be conceived of, but
to preserve and maintain that "more perfect

K less capable of improvement; they admitted it
themselves; but now is not tbe time to make
Improvements, unless saoh, if any, as may be
absolutely necessary for its preservation.
A Good Move for Gen. Buckingham.
We are right glad to see that move bas
been made to complete and fill up the p&rta of
regiments in the sereral camps in Ohio. Gen.

tj complete their regiment!. We suppose at
that time all that have not their full number
,'. will be filled up. Fut the fragments together,
and make up regiment. , There are Colonels
f we could name, with parts of regiments, who
bare been in .Camp Chase over three, months,
- - and wo thick we might safely say, who will re-
main there for three month to come, before
'-. tbey will fill op their 'regiments. I ', ; Zi
ThU plan might dispose of eomo Colonels,

We received the Intelligence to-day that Col.
Thomas Ford had been appointed Brigadier
General. Although many were pleased to bear
an Ohio General, yet had the appointment
been conferred upon the Lieutenant-Colonel of
the Twenty-fifth (William Richardson), it
would have rendered more general satisfaction,
he has went through fire with the bay and
deported himself in gallant style, whereas Col.
Ford is a stranger to them In every thing but

[From the Charleston Mercury.]
upon General Order of General
Beauregard, npon tbe victory of General Evan,
ae one of tbe most significant document whlcb
bas appeared eince the war began. It 1 not
merely a congratulation and memorial of a
victory, but it 1 an Intentional eulogy npon a
policy a policy of attack t and a condemn
tion also of a policy a policy of retreat and de
fense. Tbl Order, coupled with th Introduc
tion of bis plan of an active at;greelve cam
palgn into Maryland, and tb taking of Wash
log ton, which tb President rejected, into bis
report of tne oat tie ot Manassas, are clear man
iiestatlons of a disapprobation of tbe defensive
policy of tbe Confederate State. Ia tbl Or

tion of a just cause, defending all w hold dear
on earth, or worth living for, and with the mer
ciful aid of tbe God of battle, we can aod mutt
drivcour Invaders from tbe toil of , Virginia,

victory must "be assured of tbeir ability to
cope successfully with tbe foe arrayed against
them in whatever lorce he may offer battle,"
ana mat "no oau mst discourage or mak

Mr. Seward's Circular.
[From the London Post.]
. NoW, w must say ti'ftt American Gor
ernmeut, In our judgment, never too itep
more uncalled for and so unwise. V deeply
recrot the lamentable contest to which they find
themselves committed; we. bave lookftd
throuehout more in orrow tor America than In
anger for our own losse. upon.the contest tot
authority which U now waging. But with all
the .ympathyf nd with the utmol tnterest,
both pecuniary and :morl, In tfje Amer can
civil war, we bar firmly and fixedly refrained
from pronouncing any Judgment between the
belligerent. If we thought that we could af
reet bloodshed and terminate the war, we would
most gladly offer our friendly mediation, i But
from the very commencement w were pfrsuad
d that the aoope and fleroenes of. tbo bontili
tie were uch a European mediation would
rather intensify than allay. , We have, there
fore,' at onoe a a nation and a a Government,
rttohed to tab fart vhtttvtr, to pr
nountx n otoio whatevtr, in tlx fiuion, tckile
vmhopt U remain Jritndly with both parlU$.
Mr. Seward, therefore, altogether miscalculate
the intention both of tbe British Gorernment
and the British people, If be think that any de
sign exist (unles it be among a few forward
and nninfluentlal member of Parliament) to
recognise the South. ' Such a resolution of
neutrality upon - our part 1 recommended
on ground. both of -policy and jurtice.
The only Inoentlre .of either Ibis oountry or
Franc to take an opposite course would be to
re-eeiabllsh the supply of cotton. But .
lievt that such a hypolhtM it altogether delufivt,
and thai while the Northern Gorernment con
tinued it blockade there would be no more ex
port of cotton from a recognized than from an
unrecognized Southern Confederacy. It would
alsc"Lt present altogether prematura to reo
ognliel body or States which cannot be said to
have yet demonstrated their capacity to main
tain their own independence. If tbe prediction
of the North Bhould be realized, and their ar
mies should before spring "march right over"
tbe Southerners, what would become of a Brit
ish or French recognition 1 ,
We think, therefore, that Mr. Lincoln and
Mr. Seward are providing against a danger
wbloh can hardly be Bald to exist, and that in
doing so they are wasting upon useless objects
at once men, money and material, which It
should be their aim to concentrate upon .their
rea' and immediate enemies. The Washing
ton Cabinet are themselves deliberately allow
ing tbe Southern Confederation the advantages
of tbeir scheme. The Southerner car for
European recognition chiefly, a we bave (aid,
In .order to divert the military power of the
North. Although tbeie i no likelihood or tucb
reoornltion taking place, the N jrtb, neverthe
less, dleslnates its strength,' though anxious
to evince it power by extending tbe number of
its enemies, iney might mace euro mat we
shall not recognize the South, that (till less
shall we attack the North, and, therefore, that
the. only enemies that they bave to contend with
are those already betore them;
