The Vienna Conference.
At length, fortunately lor the cause
o I truth and ol justice, we now have a
jdcar preception of the authentic his'.o-j
! ry of the Vienna conference; and 'wc
i feel bound to pay that, while the result
i s most honorable to the councils ol
l Russia, France, and Austria, it is most
discreditable to those of England. In
order to understand the precise position
of things, we must go back to the com
mencement of the great controversy
which now convulses Europe. "
When Louis Napoleon was rising or
had ilsin to imperial ppver. he found
it for his Interest, or perhaps he ought
in"-earrrTof X'o'My In conformed with his
convictions, to ert himseir.for; lbs
restoration of the religious authority of
tho Roman Set. For this reason lie
maintained at Rome a strong auxiliary
French force, which put dnwii and stead
ilykept dawn all revolutionary oppo
sition to Pirn IX. II he had slopped
here, it would have been a question be
twee! him and the rtvolutiof.ary inter
ests in Italy; and nothing more.' B. Jt.
acting iu tfnsame sense, Louts Napo
leon sought to enlarge the existing prlv
Aer of the Latin Christians in the Le
vant. . Those privilege were alrejdy'
Urge, and the Roman Catholic powers,
especially France and Austria, possess
ed. In vutuo of capitulations, all but
unlimited power of interposition in be
half of their ro relig'onaries in Turkey:
Nevertheless France thought fit to make
a demonstiatioii iu their favor, which
consisted in demanding from the Pone
the ccuceJidoa ta the Latin Chrii'.isns
of additional privileges iu the enjoy
ment of access to the holy sepulahre at
Jerusalem. These concessions were ex
torted from tho weakness of the Porte
by the verbul menaces of the French
minister at Constantinople, backed by a
military menane on tho part of the
French fleet in lbs Dardanelles-
Thi! incident, causeless in its incep
tion, and violent in its conduct, con
stitutes the initiation and the com
mencement of all the calamities with
which Europe is now oppressed. For
the new privileges, which, under the"
lerrorofa war with France, the Porte
was thus compelled to -rant to the La
tin Christian?, were the primary iuno
ation upon exibting facts, and were in
derogation of the privileges previously
enjoyed by the Greek Christians, There
upon Russie, standing iu the same relation-
to Ihe Greek Christians that France
did to the Latin Christians, and having
by treaty a right to interpose in favor
of the (ormT, though, in a far less iIk
,ree th.in France had in f'jvnr of the
I utter thereupon Russia dispatched
Piince Meiischikori to Con stautinojile
to demand, not new rights for Russia, or
new privileges for the Greek Christians
but n restoration uf the previous equal
ity between the Greek and Latin Ciins
turns, which had been disturbed by ihe
movement of Frnnee, It is imputed to
the Russian Minister that his deport
ment on this occasion was particularly
disrespectful to the Porte. That is false;
his deportment wss mild, compared
wilii ihe recent action of the French
minister, Lord Stratford in RedclilTa.
'The truth is, that Austria, Russia,
France, and Great Britain had acquired
the habit, in common, of treating the
Porte with contumely a hubit quite
natural, considering the miserable con
dition of Turkey, which existed onlv by
reason of the mutual jealouses of the
other powers of Europe. At any rate,
Russia and Turkey would then have set
tled the question amicably between
the in , and without difficulty, on this oc
casion, but for the medling of England
and France, who together bulled the
Porte into refuting satisfaction to Rus
sia, and thus fretting end irritating the
controversy until war ensued between
Russia mid Turkey. These are tho in
controvertible facts of the commence
ment of the war in Europe. They show
that the germ of trouble was the unwar
rantable act of Franco in compelling
Tur.ey to inuovaia on the existing re
lation of her (ircek and Latin subjects,
and that the commencement of actual
hostilities was due to iheir vicious inter
meddling iu a question betweeu Turkey
and Russia, and it id by their perseve
rence in ihe same policy of insolent
meddlesomeness in other people's affairs
that the world is indebted for all thosi
horrors of carnage and of baibaric out
rage which, under ihe odiously false
i.;etext of u mission of civilization and
of peace, Great uiiiain Franco have
enacted in the Crimea,
Who can forget ihe long series of so
called negotiations iu the hist confer
ence of Vienna, iu which France and
England labored to impose their own
pasoious, their ow n prejudices, their own
interests, upon Russia? the haughty
calmness with which Russia ba filed and
repelled their absurd attempts to con
trol her action and dictate the policy in
her controversy with the Porte? the long
winded prulocole of infinite rigmaruU
and taut with which England aud France
sought to cover up tbtir attempted us
urpation ofa dual dictatorship of Eu
rope, and which, in moments of thought
less presumption, they avowed a pur
pose of extending to America, At
length this first series of negotiation
was brought to a head by means of a
proposition drawn up Mr. Drouyu de
Lliuys, adopted by Austria, England,
and France, aud iu their joint name pre
sented to Russia and Turkey as a solu
tion of the difllculty This proposition
was a declaration to be issued by the
Sultan conceding to Russia the same
rijiht of protecting Greek Christians
that Austria and France enjoyed in res
pect to Laten Christians- This prono-
si t ion s was at once accepted by Russia,
and, if presevered iu by England and
France, would have been the end of the
difliculiy. Rut tho Forte objected that
this proposition gave to Russia mora

point a strange thin; happened llu
strangest in the annals of diplomacy,
and as discreditable to the intelligence
of Ihe French and English negotiators
as it wa9 to their good fdiili. They de
puted with Turko; the plain, nbvijT,

They did not understand, or pretaiid-sd
n(A-to underatand,' ihe iery declaration
which they lheinselve hal 'elaborato

But the iniuisters of tho Sultan presis
ted that the language of the declaration
was explicit and precise; that it Bad, (J

that ascvibej. to it by tho Sultan- .
Upou this, tho allies applied to Rus
sia, ttiid said, )j yo'i lin ler9-taud ibis pa

ever it may hive bv-eu, of their fust ne
gotiations at Vienna, nut merely by the
awful sacrifice of life,' but the still more
disastrous loss of public honor. Tliey
plunged heedless and headlong' into a
sanguinary war; in- which every step
tliey take, like llie strong lan iu a qua
gmire, they do but sink deeper and deep
er in calamity and disaster. Finding
ihomselves in .war, they scarco know
how; they then lojjied around to sec
how they were to attack thei,r euiy;
They perceived that Russia was acces.

they did nothing but plunder and des
troy the houses and vessels belonging

and at other little ports on Ihe coast of
eea of Azoli". the very thing they ought
not lo have done therj if ihey desired
to diminish the moral strength of Run
sia iuTuikey, Aud thus, niter suffer
ing enormous losses, and inflicting enor
in o us losses, producing the slightest
military result, the allies entered upon
the conference of Vienna.
We now have the conclusion of ibis
conference, in the extraordinary dis
closures made in a debate in 'lie House
of Commons, which occurred immedi
ately befoie the departure of the lust
steamer, and which is destined, as we
predict, to exercise decisive influence
over future events in Great Britain.
At this conference, be it remembered
four points were brought forward for
dircusaiou as the basis of peace name
ly, lirst, the future condition of Moldi
via and Wallach'ta, and, second, the
state of navigation in Ihe Lower Din
ube. Theso Wire questions with
which Greal Britain and Franco had no
business, a uy more than w iih some ques
tion which may arise to-morrow be
tween us and Mexico. They were ques
lions which concerned Austria, Il.issij,
and Tuikey, and them alone, an I ihey
could have been settled by Ihe parties
al any time witli or without the' obtru
sive and mischievous interference of
England and France. The f.iurtli point
was, the future relation uf Russia to the
Greek subjects of the Forte, vhicli was
the pretext for the military interven
tion uf Lr,.;!aiid and Fiance, which but
for their intervention, Knssia and Tur
key would have sealed amicably them
selves al the outset, bill wind., uow ul
Vie ina, France and England refuse to
lunch, until Russia shall first have
aizreed to submit lo the dictation of
E.igland and France upon a third point,
which haj now got lo bo the professed
and the sole object lor which hundreds
ol thousands of human beings are be hit;
sacrificed by buttle aud by disease iu
the Crimea.
That third point, which, as the de
bate to win ell we allude indicates it
Lord Palmerslon's, would be so mnn
strous if it weie not ridiculous, and
which would be so ridiculous if it were
not monstrous, as to seem to emanate
from sheet insanity, is, shat Russia 1111
couquered aud unconquerable, shall
nevertheless humble herself iu ihe dust
al the feet of England, aud shall volun
tarily enter into an agreement lo grati
fy tho piidfs of England, to do what it
is physically impossible for her to do if
she should agree to it a thousand times-
-that is, to cease to te mora powerful
and prosperous than . Turaey. - This
madly impossible project, it seems, is
the substance uf the third point, as pro
pounded by France, or rather England.

Lord John Russell also'rnreed io the
proposition nt Vienna,- ar.d, of courie.,
pi,ftu.l.-d to -ur;;8 his oVerumeui to ac
cept it, but, on his arrival at Loudon,
Lord Paliuerslon re.'uso 1, a nd determin
ed in persevere in llie war. Of course
the Emperor Napoleon acqiiiicsd, al
though the chief burden of llie wjr falls
on France, w ho furnishes seven suldierj
for every 0110 furnished by Eugland.and
is pouring oul her Llood and her treas
ure like water in tliis war uf rival am-
bitoiis betweeu lha two treat Asiatic
empires, England and Russia, w ho hare
contrived io make their Asiatic rivalry
the question of Europe. At this point,
M. Diotn n do L'liuys resigns, not, as
llie world lids been allowed lo imagine,
on account of any difference of opinion
between him and tho French Emperor,
b-.it becauso having earnestly sought and
successfully found a satisfactory ground
of pence, and having agieed lo it iu good
fdiili, he cannot iu honor violate that
agreement, nor conscientiously contin
ue ihe direction of a war which has
ceased to have any just motive, guyd
purpose, or p racticable end.
But what does Lord John Russell in
the sum;) circumstance? Dues he, like
Mr, Drouyu de L'liuys, adhere lo his
engagement? Does he refuse, to continue
the minister of purposes w hie.h he knows
to be wrong? To the contrary of this
he conceals ihe fact of tha honorable
course pursued al Vienna by Austria
and Russia; he conceals the fact that
he, in accorJjuctt with .Mr, Drouyu de
L'liuys, had agreed to terms of pace
which w ere deemed honorable an J fit
by llie E-nperor of Ihi French, lla re
suiucs his place in Loid Palnurstou's
.Ministry, and fioiu his seat in liie

ami the second of Lord Pilmerstou, he
proceeds, iu disiegar l of his duly lo Lis

ple of England against the Russians.
And il is only in consequence of the

So Job sits- down again in a killing at

Job has icalized it through many a
long year; and he knows infinitely bet

it when Britannia thinks it good for
Sloggins to let him have it, and mar

The Experience of a Know Nothing.
A citizen of Morgan county, Indi
ana, having been seduced into a Know

his experience to the public, through
the Martinsville Monitor, iii tho fol- ''
lowing pregnant paragraph:
"Reader, you may think you hate

initiated into its secrets, and witness
something of the hight and depth of
its iniquity, the solemn mockery of its
rituals, and the completeness of itsty

utter disregard of moral honesty, you
will not know what to detest. Then,
if )ou me trco to yourself, your coun- :

great a detestation for tho Order that
you will avoid a bona jidi member as

The campaign on the part of the op
