TaHE EUROPEAN Naws.-Ion, of the Bal
timore Sun, of the 26th ult. writes as fol,
It is now ten months' since the allies comn
menced their opperations in the Crimea, and
the results, so far, are unfavorable to their
success. Their exultation at the rccenl
successes is quite proportionate to any ad.
vantage they have gained. They have
taken IKertsch, which they could have ta.
ken at any time, because Russia did not
want it. They have simply used*the fort
as long as the allies chose to let them have
it, but it was by no means regarded as no·
cessary to their supplies. They have taken
with immense loss, two advanced works of
the Russians before Sebastopol, which works
have already answered their military purr
pose, and which can be renewed on differ
ent lines whenever it may be expedient.
The Mamelon on a little round hill, was
fortified by the Russians after the battle of
Inkermann, and, like their other advanced
works, had given the allies much trouble by
including their advanced works. All these
victories are mere affairs of out-posts, but
which fritter away the strength of the allies
without giving them the least important
advantage. They have brought the allies
now to the fearful trial of the month of Ju
ly and August, when pestilence must neces
sarily destroy them by thousands, when ac
tion Is impossible, and inaction is destruc
tion. The Russian strength in the Crimea
has been increased, as we have every reason
to believe, to an extent equal to that of the
allies and their forces outside of Sebastopol,
are so concentrated at fortified points as to
be able to keep open a communication with
Sebastopol, to resist any attack from the
allies, and to be ready at the critical mo
ment to avail themselves of an opportunity
to strike a decisive blow. These circum
stances are unfavorable to the peace which
the allies expect to conquer before Christ
mas. England is fighting for the preserva
tion of her military prestige, and, as thie
London Times urges for England to be beat
en in the Crimea is to be beaten everywhere.
We might for the sake of our own interest,
of the interest of the world, wish England
such a victory as will enable her to make
It has been apprehended by our wisest
and most conservative statesmen that the
war in Europe could not be protracted
without involving this country in its vortex.
This was our experience, heretofore, when
we were less strong than we are now: We
are now quite as much feared as hated by
foreign powers and it would be very impo
litic on the part of Englend to quarrel with
us. But the latest advices show that ag
gression upon our commerce have been re
commenced by these powers in the Baltic,
and in the course of their desperate struggle
it may not be long before they will com
mence a regular system of plunder upon our
commerce, as they did under the "orders in
Council," and the Berlin and Milan decrees.
The United States is pledged before the
world to assert their right to the freedom
of the seas, which has been grossly violated
by the British Admiral in the Baltic.
The immediate effect of this outrage will
be to confirm our people in their imputed
Russian sympathies. It may be that the
two great empires of the world--the Eas
toern and the Western-the despotic and thire
democratic-are to unite on common ground
for the assertion of the principle of the lib
erum mare. Both powers have a common
interest in the maintenance of that princi
le, and they have the strength to do it.
To us it is a vital principle, and the aid of
Russia in its establishmeut will be cordial
To us such an alliance will supply the
place, to a great extent, of a great naval
force. Nothing could be more inconsistent
with our political and econominal system
than to support a naval establishment upon
the scale of the British and French navy.
But Russia, confronting and engaging Wes
tern Europe, is our shield, from their at
The despatches of our Minister (Mr. Ma
son,) on this subject will be looked for witlr
great anxiety. What has become of our
Minister to Itussia? From him, or of him
nothing is heard.
The last assaults upon our commerce in
the Baltic, by the British commanders, are
to be made known to us, as it seems, through
Mr. Mason, by Count Nesselrode--our
Minister to Russia, having nothing to do
with the matter.
liVThe editors of the Clinton Patriot, a
Know Nothing sheet, in speaking of the re
cent election in Virginia, say "it will have
just about as much effect upon the political
mnvoPnment, in our State as the election of a
Hotlteutot Chief would have." Very good,

The Whigs of Maryland proposed to hold

It is in substance the whole of the majority

which they reject, and substitute for it a
declaration that opinions on that subject are
irreconcilable that no organized action can
be had to bear upon the question, and that
each section should be left to its own action
by its representative in Congress.
This is a distinct action from that of

thousand copies will be issued for the boatmen;
all others desirous of subscribing, will have to
do so at once, as none will be printed unless or

are contributors to the steamboat directory.
