In my opinion this war will never
be successfully carried on so lonir as an
rmy marches through slave States as
a boat goes through a nock of ducks.
They fly up on its approach, and nestle
down as soon as it lias p.ted. The
boat is safe, and so are ilie ducks.
When you much through a State, you
r Bust march so that tiuilois will feel

'- ' A WAS WITH ENGLAND.
In our remarks up.m the arrest of
llaaon and Slideli, nc stated that the
law, and the piecedents were on our
'aide, and that England could not pos
sibly make a war out of the "offense"
as she calls it, on letfal criounds. This
position has been conceded by the Bri
lish papers, which admit that the law
and the precedents ate on our side; but
they bluster terribly about the "out
rage lo the British flag;" and beg the
question by saying thai England must
.- not be held lo the strict line of hei
own precedents, that she must not bt
judged in 1861 by what she did fifty
years ago ! That the progress of.civi
taxation and the onward march of irn
. proremer.ts must release hi r from the
obligations of her own legal interpclra
tions. Io other words, to compass the
whole subject in a nutshell, she sets
p the claim that what teas "sauce for
the goose, " not now siuce for the gan-
J It seems strange that the press of
Be of the greatest nations of the woild,
should resort to such miserable sub
. terfuges as these in its attempts lo -et
up a war feeling against a ftien lly
power. Butitshons us most cunclu-
t eively that the government of Great
IBritnh is not frieudly at heart to these
United" States. It has been ewdent
- from the beginning that the Bri li,
government leaned strongly towards
the rebels. Facts have recently come
to-light which go Tory far to indicate
that the rulers of England were pretlV
eU advised of the intended rebellion
, at the South, long before that evtnt
occured, and that assurances were un
officially given, that England would not
be in the way of such a movement J We
say the evidence is such as to warrant
us in reaching this conclusion.
Abe aristocracy of Brituin has ever
looked with disfaor iipjn our Ilepub
lie. It has been a "thorn in theii
. Kesu, as well as in the flesh of mosi
r of the crowned heads of Europe, and
., any event that can crippla us, disrupt
Uie Kepublic.and give them a show for
proclaiming that republictimm is a
failure, would be bailed by them with
c,eagerjoy. In this rebellion thev have
w found the long looked for engine of
destruction to the Union.
Our belief is. that England is desi
rout of aiding the refolds. Not that
she sympathizes with them, pirticular
ly, but because she hales the Republic,
and desires its destruction. And this
belief lead us to expect he will seek
for pretexts to lake a hostile portion
gainst m. Her whole policy looks,
, this way; and though a large portion of
- .tlia people of England are opposed lo
slavery, and friendly to us, yet the
... government is hostile, and when once
war is inaugurated, the people will un-
t auisaously stand by the government.
n This rebellion is the long coveted op-
porluniiy of the British government to
trjke us down or cripple Us, as she
thinks, beyond recovery; and, it will
not be suffered lo pats by unimproved.
If the British Cabinet cannot make a
' war ,outof lit Ticnt affair, they will
i watch for some other excuse, and they
mil .find k. This is our delibciale
j , opinion.
What theD ? Well, it will call out
the energies of this nation as no na ion
. has ever yet put forth its strength.
Tke struggle will be an eventful and
bloody oue, such as the world has sel
dom'seen', yet there can be but one re-
-tjawlt; we shall come off triumphant in
the end. We do not predicate this be
lief on prejudice and prefeience alone,
but from a'careful suney of the whole
' field. .
It is a well known fact that Ireland
is groaning under the Eujlish y oke.and
is ready to atari up in rebellion at any
"njomeat when fortune favors. Tens of
thousands of the British army aro made
up of Irish holdicrs. These will lar re
ly desert."' These will be sent heie to
i. fight us, iwhile English troops will be
s sent against Ireland. But the Irish
troops in her majesty's army in Ame-
i rice, will find their brothers by thoa-
saads Meter the Stars and Stripes and
o jfeejr will aot willingly fight them. In-
t j dead, they will desert by thousands and
come ow Jo belp ms. Thes,is of
our Irish soldiers will rush to Ireland
to join their brethren at homeMn wag
ing a war against England for freedom.
Australia is iu much the same condi
tion of Ireland. Thousands there are
already in open rebellion, aud live by
preying upon the ruling classes. A
lebeHipn will break out there also,
which will hardly be put dow n. Near
ly one-half the peopL- of Canada are
ripe for revolt, and will probably eize
this opportunity to strike foi libei ty.
Thus will the British government soon
have its hands as full to put down.re
bellion aa ours me now, and sho will
hardly ba able lo put forth her power
heavily against us. We can strengthen
her rebels as effectually as she can
But, again, the moment England
declares war agiiust us, our govern
ment will confiscate nine hundred mil
lions of dollars of British property in
this country, which will free nearly silj
our milioads from indebtedness, and
ultimately prove a vast smucc of wealth
to us. as well as l.irirelv tontribute to
defray the expenses of the war.
Besides, our government has not ac
cepted the piopoaitions ol the Furis
conference ou priva.eeiing. It is Hue
Mr. Seward has pioposcd to do so, but
Fiance objects; and now we hope .Mr.
S. and the administration will hive
the good sense to withdraw the propo
sition of acceptance at once. In our
hands the right of privateering in a
war with England wouid be worth as
much us a hundred well armed war
-ships, or tm army of a quarter of a mil
lion soldiers. We could prey upon
British commerce, which would lay at
our mercy all over the world. Our
mercantile marine exceeds th tl of all
ilie world put together, and our mer- itemplated an attack. Minium mirched
