mm find the President derated at once
to the rank of Military Dictator, or Despot

pie must bow before this supreme and absolute
'judge of military necessities. "
-Congress, it is argued, has no power to liber
ate slares: but it is Implied as strongly as
though it had been directly asserted, that the
President has, for tbe war power justifies the
President in winy any mean be may deem ad

This Is clothing tbe President with onlimltsd
M-bitrarr power under the stale pie of "mill
tary necessity" whlck will justify any stretch of
tyranny. If our Chief . Magistrate may nee

there is no limit to bis discretion either in the

ly told that, all the loyal part of tbe country
will rally around tbe President and sustain bim

implying that tne mass of tbe people bare al
ready become so corrupted, that they are ready
to par. witb their righi to self-gorernment, and
mika a MiliUrr Dictator the sole atbiter of
their fortunes, their liberties and their live.
We do not apprebeod that President LinColh
will a' tempt to exercise any such nnlimited dic
tatorship as bis organ, the World, claims for
him uoder the "war poner." Bat we cannot
aun'tr' for the effect the constant reiteration of
such riews may ultimately bar opon him.
At any rate, its teudeocy is ta poison the public

despotism, which the Union canDot poss.bly snr-

would Institute a present military despotism to

"without Congressional dictation;" because,'
It is important, on all accounts, that the war
shall not be long. Tbe immense patronage
with which it clothes the executive would en
danger our liberties if it should contiuue up to
tbe next presidential election. Oat presidential
lectiona were doing enough to corrupt tbe
political morals of tbe country when our annual
expenditure was seventy millions; the govern
ment cannot aland long, with the present Con
stitution, iT tbe prize to be struggled for in our
presidential contests reaches four or five bud
dred millions of annual expenditure. If tbe
war is nil) in progress wben tbe next eleotion'
overtakes us, tbe publio liberties will not. sur

that we put tortb herculean efforts, wage the
war on a colossal scale, and end it before our cit

The Cotton Manufacturers in England. A Thrilling Prophecy---How Fearfully
and Rapidly it is Being Fulfilled.
In last February Alabama seceded! That
brave old man, Senator Clemens, who bad, un
til then, breaaud all tha storm of wild fanati
cism, and clung to tbe flag of our Union,, yield
ed tb the popular clamor, and unsheathed bis
sword in a cause be hated, and one be knew
oould not succeed. He wrote tbe following to a
friend: , . .
"We axe out; we have bid adien to the Star
and Stripes, and abandoned the high privilege
of calling ourselves American citizens. I am
not ashamed to conies that I could not restrain
my tear wben the old banner, which I bave
followed through eo many danger, was torn
down and tbe flag of Alabama wa raised in
in place.-.- i cannot restrain them now wben I
am-wrilinir: but tbe deed Is done s new era

and Rapidly it is Being Fulfilled. A Severe Criticism upon Lord Lyons's
and Rapidly it is Being Fulfilled. A Severe Criticism upon Lord Lyons's Style of Writing.
The London Timet is criticising Lord Lyons,
the British Minister to Washington, for the
bad logio and wretched grammar which he em
ployed in his late correspondence with Secre
tary Seward. 1 ne a imes says oi mm:
"It surelv wa worth while tb write a letter
at leatt tolerably welt expressed and tolerably
well reasoned when we addressed ourselves to
the task of calling a free and kindred nation to
account for the violation of the liberties of man
kind and of tbeir own Constitution. .The first
paragraph of the letter I in the past tense:
Mler Majesty's Government were much concern
ed;' 'they had learned from telecnphio dis
patch;' 'they conld not but regard.' Tbe suc
ceeding paragraphs are all in tbe present tense:
''I bey perceive,' 'they conceive,' ana so rortn.
Tb arrangement i a slovenly as the writing:
'Her Maieetv' Government finds that two Brit
ish subjects bav been mbjeoted to arbitrary
arrests.' 'Her Majesty' Government perceive
that when tbe British subjects, a well as Amer
ican eitizens, are arrested, they are immediate
lv transferred to a military prison.' This does
not mean,, we suppose, that it is only wben Her
Majesty's subject are arrested together with
Americans they are placed in a military prison,
but rather that when arrested tbey, as well as
Americans, are io placed. Let that pass, how
' After this bit of literary criticism, tbe Timet
proceeds t tell Lord Lyons that "he bas en
tangled a very plain question," that his ease ia
"awkwardly stated," and the whole affair, "has
been argued exceedingly ill on our (tbe British)
part." It then makes this admission:
" SVe cannot certainly expect the American
Government to guide itself in tbe construction
of tbe Coot titu Lion ol tbe United Stat by the
opinion of tbe law officer of tbe British Crown,
and dignity and propriety alike required that no
alluiioa to them should nave been made in
such a communication a th present."
We guess Lord Lyons' diplomatic oareer In
this country will be a brief one, and that be
will bve a successor who can write better English.'
