A French Opinion of Mr. Lincoln's Presidency!
A pamphlet recently published in Paris,
written by Count De Gasparin, entitled
"The Uprising of a Great people the
United States in 1861;" contains the fol
lowing: If you wish to know what tho Presidency
of Mr. Lincoln will have to show,' see iu
what manner and under what auspices it
was inaugurated ; listen to the word which
come from the lips of the Head of the State,
when about to leave his native town : . A
duty devolves upon me which is perhaps
greater than that which has devolved upon
any other man, since the days of Washing
ton. I hope you, my friends, will all pray
that I may receive that divine assistance,
without 1 which I cannot succeed,' but with
which success is certain."
"Yes, yes, we will pray for you T Such
was the' response of tho inhabitants of

low citizen. ' What a debut for a Govern

Gon. Butler is. (' right Ho is a round
lawyer as well' as a good soldier. He holds
that negro slaves, owned by Secession mas
ten, in seceded States, are contraband of
war.: Like the negro himaelf, the Gener
al's postulate standi on two legs, viz:
1. Slaves are property in Virgiuia, in the
language of tbe law, "to all mteuts, oon
structions and purposes whatsoever.
2. They are employed in the Secession
States to dig trenches, construct embank
ments, carry muskets, mount columbiads,
and do sundry other things in aid of tbe
publio enemy. Consequently, they are as
really implements of war, as are tbe guns
tbey bear for tbeir masters, and tbe can
non they mount in embrasures.
Gen. Butler, therefore, is right in regard'
ino- this peculiar species of property as con
traband. Let him continue to treat all ne
groes caught within hie lines as so many
muskets and columbiads, and no more think
of giving them up to tbe enemy than he
would a eargo of captured snot and shell.
The General, who is practical roan, will
find this sort of contraband a vorv conven
ient article when he gets a little deeper
down into tbe land of Dime. With tbe
thermometer ranging at 100 in the shads.
and earthworks to be piled fifteen feet high,
he will find couple of hundred contraband
bipeds attached to eaoh regiment capital
aids to the piok-ex and wheelbarrow corps.
As the General, being a strict construction
ist, does not feel at liberty to set these ne
groes free, be has dons the next best thing
oy soiling mem to wora. jy. g, 4rww,
Prospective Emigration from the South
A gentleman from Bflton Rouge, Louis!--
ana, who has recently beeu traveling in
Western Missouri, and carefully observing
the state of sentitrieut of the People, witb
a view to formiug a correct calculation of
tbe future action of the State, informs lis
that if Missouri remains in the Union, hund
reds and thousand of substancial and wealthy '
citizens of Louisiana will emigrate hither in
search of a homo where' tbey can dwell and
till tbe land in safety, unmolested by tho
dangers and distresses that have unsettled
society, overthrown industry, and depreciat
ed property at the South. &l. Lows jvew$.

The Vote on Secession in the Pan Handle.
The Wheeling Intelligencer of Monday
savs: i Tbe vote of tbe four counties of our
glorious little Pan Handle against the in-i
famous ordinance of secession amounts to
tbe incredulous sum of six thousand eight
hundred and twenty-eigbt. lake from this
vote the pitiful batch of secession ballots
that were cast, amounting to four hundred
and thirty one, and we have a clean major
ity of six thousand three hundred and niqe-ty-seven.
Davis to Command.
T. R. Davis, artist and correspondent of
Harper's Weekly, who accompanied Jeff.
Davis from Peosacola to Montgomery, has
arrived in Cincinnatti. He says that Joff.
Davis took a formal leave of Montgomery on
Saturday last for Richmond, to take com-.
mand of the army, and that Wigfal , will
be his Chief Aid in' the battle that is ex
pected to take place. ''
Coarse, low abusive passes very readily
