THB KOSTA ATFAtB.
When the particulars of Capt. Ingrahara's
conduct on the 2d of July at Smyrna, first cam
.cross the water, the great American people
took off its hat and swung it around with the
most enthusiastic expressions of admiration.
The insinuation of doubt as to the propriety of
his course was sufficient to bring down upon
the head of the daring doubter, the ep'lhet of
"Austrian Allv I" Even now, the hurras of
enthusiastic meetings at St. Louis and other
cities are echoing on the air. As tributes to
the manly and honorable impulse under which
the gallant Captain doubtlessly acted, these de
monstrations are right; but if meant to hail the
establishment of a new principle they are wrong
enough to deserve disapprobation; or at leant
the circumstances suggest grave doubts as to
whether it was Capt. Ingraham's duty to adopt
the course he thought proper to pursue.
Martin Kosta was not a citizen of the United
Staies.i He had only declared his intention to
become such, and then nullified this declaration
by quitting the ' United States and returning to
Turkey, whence he had beeo released, as a fol
lower of Kossuth, enly upon his solemn pledge
never to re-enter that territory, lie himself,
when questioned, by Capt. Ingraham, declared
tbat "he was a , Hungarian, and would die a Hun
garian." .If Capt. Ingraham's forcible rescue
should be productive, of nothing more tlinn
transient excitement in this country, it will be
no great matter, but if the Austrian government
should treat the affair seriously, then the Amer
lean government must make it a precedent. . The
question will have to be decided, whether every
adventurer from Europe who chooses, may come
to this csuntry, merely declare his intention to
become a citizen, and then return to commit
ome act which will involve us in trouble Cer-
. taiuly if Kossuth, or his superior, Mazzini, had
resolved te bring on a collision hctweeu the
United States and Austria, he could not have
devised a more effective scheme.
The Austrian Minister for Foreign Affairs
has sent to the Ministers of the severul Foreign
Courts a protest against the United States, where'
in the threatened hostile attack of the United
States Ship of War, St. Louis, upon his Im
perial Majesty's brig, the Hussar, is construed
into a menace of war; and the facts that this act
was committed by one who iiad no right to make
war! and that this was done iu a neutral port, are
termed two serious deviations from Internation
al Law. . The principles set forth in the Aus
trian Protest may be all wrong, but it 'is doubt
ful if the course of Capt. Ingraham can be clear
ly made to appear all right.
'The immense growth, prosperity and increase
of pewer of the United Slates should not make
her quarrelsome, aggressive or dictatorial. Such
circumstances frequently produce these effects
in individuals, but a great nation's dignity should
be above that mark. - . '
JJ Telegraphic communication between En
gland and the Continent will soon be so com
plete, that upon the arrival of a vessel at Hali
fax or New York from Liverpool, the people of
this country will at once be apprised of every
important event that may have happened in al
most any part of Europe, at the date of the ves
sel's leaving Liverpool.

increased in ireiana, ana me London Spectator

V The New York Medical Gsiette has an
rticle intended to disabfiselhe ptiblio 6f the im
pression thatj the ( recent large mortality in that
city, was the resulj of the hot weather alone,
arguing that the true cause of death was a para
lysis of the stomach, rather than "congestion of
the brain " induced by the use of stimulating
liquors. The editor says, "we record it as a
witness and not as a disputant, that we have
seen no case of serious or dangerous character,
in which the patient haL not been indulging in
intoxicating drinks, while heated in an atmos
phere ranging above 90 degrees ii. the shade.
; O" The Fulton Telegraph is bragging on the
girls of that town.' He wants to hei a new hat

therefore must allow this chance for a new hat
to rass. ' .

The Praot cability of tat League.
This is not an experiment. It as been elo
A league has 'been formed in the Count y of
Unonilaga, on a capital of Sd.OOO.UOO.
In Yates County, on a capital of $1,500,000
In Chemung County, on a capital of $ 1.00(1,001),
In fceneca County, on a capital of $1,000,000.
In Untario County, on a capuul or 100,000.
In Monroe County, on a capilul of $6,000,000.
In Chautauqne County on n capital of $2,000,000,
In Uelaware County, on a capital ol S;l.!)00,l)UO,
In Tompkins County, on a capital of $1,500,000.
In some of the above counties the stock is
continually increasing. In all of tliem where
the League has been tuitliluily nuiuimsiereil,
they have been eminently successful. In Yats
County, it bus almost entirely rid the county of
every alcoholic plague-spot. Wherever the
friends have faithfully paid in their assessments
(which with the exception ol Uutario, has in no
nstance exceeded 00 cen's on the $ 1.000), the
legil power, thraugh the prosecutinragctits has
done, or is admirably accomplishing the work.
Kum-sellers and politicians are appalled and re

been promptly paid, us in the County of Onon

1 hat Accomplished, the work is chiefly done.
Take a case: The town of Elbridge, Onon
daga Co., is assessed on one million of dollars
by rum politicians, mainly for the rum interest.
the tax is 01 cent on a hundred dollars, do
cents of which is for the support of rumsellers
and rum politicians and measures. With five
oents on the hundred dollars, only, with the aid
oi the town and county officers, we pledge our
selves to abolish the dram shops, and put the
rumsellers in jail, instead of paying thirty cents
on the hundred dollars to imprison our sons and
friends and so through the state.
I conclude my hasty expose, with a notice of
the fact that a State Convention of the Carson
League is to be held in the City of Rochester,
New Yoax Lire An occasional correspon
dent of the National InltUigtnctr,. writing from
Yew York, gives this account of the manner of
living in that city t . ) i j. .
The ceneral stvle of livina and the heavy ex
penditure in New York has no parallel either in
this country or Europe, in the Same rank and
class of society. It is, to be sure, far exceeded
by the immensely rica nobility Af England, but
the bankers, merchants and tracers or England
are very far exceeded in their stjrle of living and
personal expenses by the corresponding classes
of this oiiy. There is also an 'absurd rivalry
here on this subject. 1
The man with $50,000 wisnes to live on
footing with his neighbor who has $100,000;
this latter, with another who has 'accumulated
$500,000; and this latter again wits the million
aire of the Fifth avenue. This disposition and
the practice of it is exhibited in evey form, by
the men in their town and country! houses, -in
their furniture, fast horse, and the Splendor of
their dinners, and the quality and pice ef their
wines: by the women, in balls and btrees; and
the general desire of show and parkle extend
not only to their weddings, but evtn to thei
funerals and the 'habiliments of woer .

There is also in New ork a genril, and it
may be called a vulgar praotice to e imate or

such a sum for the supper, that the re of the
