THEl'IlIOili vs. A V1HOIS1**'
The venerable editor of the " Uniou" has
been please.) to give a passing notice to the ar
ticles which 1 have, from time to time, sent
von He has been pleased to say that, they
are weak and without point, and filled with,
llummery. I candidly conless, iny dear sir,"
that I have but feebly illustrated the duplici
city, hypocrisy and hollow-heartedness of
that venerable editor, in the course which he
has lately pursued towards President Tay
lok. 1 candidly confess, that 1 do not possess
the power to delineate his character as por
trayed in the columns of the " Enquirer "
and " Union" for forty years past. I am
altogether incapable ot eliminating his tergiv
ersations?his political charlatanism?his je
suitical knavery. It is perfectly true that, a
stronger pen than mine is required to
contrast properly and with mete justice to
the subject, his professions and his practices,
throughout a life devoted to trick and party
chicanery. I will honestly admit to the edi
tor, that, I did not hope even with my small
talents and limited artistical skill, to draw ol
him a likeness after the style of "Juni'ls." 1
merely sought to present an unpretend.ng
portrait, but one that would be recognised.
But had I the power and art of a master?:n
mercy, 1 should spare him?for did the peo
ple of this country behold him with the veil
thoroughly rent from his leatures, and all his
hideous proportions fully exposed, they would
arm themselves with "ro.is of scorpions"
and "whiphim living through the world."
The venerabl'; editor has also been pleas
ed to say, that, as "A noble Virginian" 1
shouTil not have "condescended" to write
such matter, and for such a journal as the
"National IT'Aii/." Here again, I plead
guilty to the fullest extent. As a Virginia
gentleman, 1 should have remembered the
old adage that "he who wrestles with a
chimney sweep will get smutted," before I
undertook to.handle the dirty columns of the
li Union." I should have had more regard
for decency, than to have fished in the mud
dy waters of progressive and free Democra
cy." All this I humbly confess.
In conclusion, the venerable editor, with
the consummate gra' e and point ot the most
abandoned and accomplished parasite attend
ant upon the late Court of St. James, as il
he knew me, attributes my articles to inter
ested motives. "A noble Virginian1' would
have spurned an insinuation so entirely un
worthy the mind of an honorable man even
against his bitterest foe. "A Virginia gen
tleman" would never have stooped from his
own lofty position for the purpose of casting
a thir upon his adversary. "A Virginian*'
as 1 am, 1 enn only treat it, as 1 would the
malicious aspersions of a blackguard?with
silent contempt.
it Is entirely true, my dear sir, that al
though the "bags of fortune" have more
than once in my life, been opened to my
view and exposed to my grasp, yet that, like
most of the "Virginians" who have the blood
of Revolutionary ancestors in their viens, 1
have but little wherewithal to provide for
this "carcass of my body." 1 nope, how
ever, that I possess a free and independent
mind and a fearless heart, those principles
which will ever lead me to spurn the shack
les of mere party and to approve THE
RIGHT and condemn THE WRONG
wherever I meet with them?whether I dis
cover that right in President I ayi.or, or
that wrong in the Union. It becomes the
Union thus to indulge in sly and cunning a.t
ttrliont in the place of lair argument where
by to weaken an adversary. It becomes him
to allude to the fancied circumstances of my
life, confident in his knowledge of me. But
whatever I am, or may be, 1 tell him, in the
language of Euripides, that, "/f better be
comes Arialiiles to ylory in his poverty,
than Callias in his riches
Vyhether the venerable editor has ever
done me "personal or political injury" I
have not stopped to inquire, nor nave I
treated him as a private individual. As the
editor of the Union, the leading organ of one
of the great parties of this country, 1 have
viewed him and shall continue to view him
in that light. He speaks as if lie knew me
personally. He may, or he may not have
formed my acquaintance in the private walks
of life. But of this lie may rest assured,
that, under whatever circumstances he may
meet me, whether in public, or in private
life, he will never find me using secret teea
/ions against an adversary, or frantically
opposing a virtuous or patriotic citizen, call
ed by the voice of his country to the Presi
dential chair, before anything is known as to
his measures and policy ; and I am happy to
inform him that, the late canvass proves that,
more than one man in the Confederacy has
thrown off the shackles of party and occupies
at this time a position similar to that of
to Tim F.urroit or t!7e national wmo

Mr. Kditoi : 1 wti not vain enough lo supposo (
when I published the testimony of the attorney em- |
ployed againtt Col. Wiiiim in his Insolvency pro- ,
reeding", which testimony entirely eihonersted him |
from every imputation iiRsinst his inrrgrltyaud hon
esty as an upright man, that the I'nion would have
either ihe candor or ihe manliness to retract his base
and wilful calumnies against one whom it had de
liberately and wllh " inatu* nfortthoiirhl" assailed.
No on* whose acquaintance with the political course
ol Mr. RiTCHir has been of the long standing that
mine has, would ever suspect him of doing justice to
an opponent whom he has most Infamously and un
pardonably reviled. Slander and detraction lie rolla
aa a sweet morsel under his longtte, and If there la
any difference, he delights more in his personal as
?aults upon the innocent than upon thoee who may
be open to attack Ilia morbid anxiety for personal
assault frequently leads him Into difficulties with his
own party, and is the besetting sin that gave rise to
bis being denied for 11 lime access lo the floor of the
Senate, to which he was entitled by courtesy as pub
lic printer, and lo the mercilesa cssligatlons he re
reived upon several different occasions from niem- |
bers ol his own political faith on the floor of Con
gress. Tlilseelf-wllled stubbornness In wrong-doing
ie made perceptible In his shot t article of this morn
ing la answer to my communication In your Mon
day's edition.
How does he seek to escape the evidence of the four
membera of the bar of Virginia and Massachusetts
who were o< counsel for the :r> diiorsof Col. Wash*
In resisting the Insolvency proceedings! Why, he very
cavalierly remarks- " ll'e hmt ,mt tht artlrlt lu Mr.

from the malicious libels of ill* Union, Mr. Kn ciiib
calls upon the wllitew aland a witness who already
stands impearhed before the world. I lay iwtfitac'itd,
because a witness who lagullty ol suppres^ a part
of ihe truth stands equally as culpable in the eyes si
the law ae he who misstates the trthh. .And the
record shows that this Mr. Ueacii, as the pliant
tool of Mr. Ritcm ie, furnished garbled extract* from
that record with a view of prejudicing an un
enspeeftag public against Col. Wabbbn, carefully
concealing that portion which tended entirely to ex
onerate him from all blame in the premises. Wha'
then cap the public expect from such a witness, but
that, " like matter like man," he ahould persevere in
attempting to inflict intentional injustice upon Col.
IVabbkn? Mr. KitcHis Is as competent of judg
ing orthe force and effect of the English language

nesa ae a maA 7 If the witnesses introduced by Col.
Wabben have any prejudices, they would naturally
be against him, as they were his opppoalng counsel;
yet the Union prefers the ipse dixit of a single man
who hus degraded himself in putilic estimation by
the garbled testimony he furnished the Union with
rather than abide by the unqualified frank and can
did statements of four ineiubera of thu bar, who
stood in uu untagonisleal position to Col. Wabiisx
and has given the lie direct to Ihe calumnies of the
Union and Ills correspondents.
The Union regards my communication as " ill
mannered," because, I suppose, 1 have employed, tc
some extent, the plainness and severity of language

indulges in, while maliciously assailing the private

The must important item of news brought
y the steamer America is tlte resolve of
the French Government, sanctioned by the
Assembly, to interfere in the afeirs of
Rome, avowedly for the re?toiatjo$|ul the
o|?a ; to accomplish which, ? lorca^f F^ur
teen thousand troops has been sent to the
Roman territory?to Civita Vecchia, which

rhis measure, we are sorry to say, has
not a little the appearance of a condemna
ion of the revo'ution of February, and of
a reactionary anti-republican feeling in the
Government and in the present representa
tives of the French people?the legislators
who formed the consti'ution, which, taken
altogether, is a pretty passable one, though
not without some serious defects?defects
that we enumerated in the Globe in De
cember last. Now, that this same conven
tion should, by a vote carried by a large
majority, condemn its own acts by con
demning those of the Roman people, seems
strange and inconsistent and unaccountable.
But let us be just. The reason assigned
for this intervention by the Government
and in the Assembly, against which Lamar
tnie, Washington, Lafayette, and Cavaignac
voted, is, that a violent and unconditional
restoration of the Pope is not contemplated ;
but that, whilst restoring him, a liberal form
of government, with free and suitable insti
tutions, will be insisted on, on behalf of the
Roman people, and that instead of extin
guishing freedom at Rome, it will be per
manently established, with guarantees : that
r rcncli intervention is better than Austrian
intervention, which will be inevitable, un
ess Austria is anticipated by France ; that
by settling the Roman question in this way,
the peace of Italy may be preserved, and
more real and effective aid rendered to the
cause of Italian freedom than by leaving the
question of the Pope's deposition open and
unsettled that his restoration is unavoida
ble and Ihe question is only, whether it is
not better that I-ranee should take the initi
ative, t.ian leave it to some other continen
tal power to'do so?some power that wouhl
reap all the benefit to be derived from the
restoration of his Holiness, but would con
fer none on the Roman people
Thus argue the friends of intervention
whether they are sincere or not, it is im
possible as yet to tell; impossible to say
whether the reasons assigned publicly for
?lie intervention are the true feasons, or
whether, under this mask of a generous and
conservative policy may n?, be ,.oncea|ed j
foul and traitorous conspiracy against both
the Roman and the French Republic. But
before condemning this measure in very
emphatic terms, we will wait and see bv
what results it will be followed-what will
be the character and the extent o( the inter
vent,on and what will be stipulated for on
. lfof the R<"?>an people as a condition
?tne qua non of the restoration ; and if a
liberal constitution, with liberal institutions,
is obtained, and guarantees forthcoming?
guaran.ees that will be sufficient and satis-l
factory for the maintenance of freedom of
the press and representative government?
the priests to have nothing to do with civil
and secular affairs?if all this is done by
fair and honorable means, and without a re

a Inut, that under the circumstacces it is the
best that could be done-hetter certainly
than to leave Rome to the tender mercies
of Austria, of Spam, and of Naples, as
Rome will be left, should the north of Italy,
with Genoa antl Tuscany, prove recreant to
the patnot cause, or prove unequal to the
work or maintaining it, as will be the case,
we fear?as is now the case, it may per
haps be said ; and for which Charles Albei t
is most to be blamed. He rejected from

Italy will manage her own affairs, was his
constant response, when the subject was
mentioned?L'Italia fara da se. And she

selfishness, of his rashness, and of his ambi
tion has been?the subjection of Lombardy,
of V enice, (now or soon to be,) the sub
mposed bv the Austrians of many millions,
the loss of his crown, a reaction in Tuscany
and Modena, the restoration of the Pope
and the present annihilation of all hope fo?

he furnishes another instance of what a vast
amount of mischief a mediocre man may do
whose ambition is greater than his capacity'
Ins courage, if possessed at all, merely ani
mal, and his integrity not by any mea s

strike a blow for their freedom, they will not

to the House.
Sir a Grey thought that the lime was yel far
dfctanwrhen The punishment in question could be
safely dispenm-d with in an extreme cuae of guilt
like that of murder. He then proceeded to analyse
ut.d refute Mr. Ewart's argument, so far as it rested
either upon figures, or on grounds social and moral.
He trusted that the House would not consent even
to have the bill laid upon the table, as expectations
might thereby be raised which would no| be fulfilled.
Mr. Bright spoke at great length in favor of the
motion, snowing that, waiving the religious argu
ment, the punishment of death should be abolished
on "grounds of expediency alone. It was evident
that the punishment in question did not deter from
crime, while its public infliction shocked the sensi
bilities of the good, and tended to render the ill-dis
posed only the more prone to crime.
Mr. Drummond opposed the inption, thinking
that nothing tended more to the insecurity of lite
than making the murderer a hero in that House and
elsewhere. He could assure those who sympathised
with the criminal In such u case, that, so far nt least
as regulated the welfare of society, their sympathies
were very much misplaced.

XV Mow Mc h rrou ?
This is what St. Simon appropriately calls the
routine ol the widow Scarron at Marly. She remain
ed in her apartment, seldom paying or receiving vis
its, attracting all about her without appearing to do
so. When sne summoned the daughters of the king,
It was to reprimand them , so they went tremblingly
and returned in tears. Her favorite, hcraccomplico,
and her instrument, was the Dtic de Maine, her un
worthy pupil, a prince as doforined in mind as in
body, and for whom she would havo overthrown the
succession. She did not allow him to see Madame
Montespan, his mother. Every morning, I.ouis
XIV passed an hour and a half alonp with Madame
de Malntenon. He returned thither every evening
wltli hie ministers, and attended to their labors du
ring the supper and the retiring of the lady. He
wafted until the curtains of her tied were drawn to
bid her good night, and to go to supper in his turn.
She herself never went to the king, unless when he
was sick. A queen in her household, she was else
where but a private individual, yielding in appear
ance to those whom she governed in reality. She
even ruled the king without his knowing if. While
belabored with his ministers, she spun, read, or em
broidered. She heard everything, her advice was
asked, she gave it discreetly as if with reluctunce;
buf sire was sure it would bo followed, for she had
previously summoned (he ministers, and consulted
with thein. AH were therefore her friends, with the
exception of To ray, who had the courage to keep
aloof without, however, offending her.
Highland Blood.?The chief engineer of one of
the Halifax steamers, lately purchased by the Prus
sian Government, was, until recently, a fine stalwurt
Highlandman. six feet two in stature, and strong In
proportion to nls unusuil height. One day, at Bre
men, when our Highlander was on deck, the com
mander of the new steam-frigate brushed roughly
and rudely past liiin. Resenting the oflence, the
Scot threatened to knock down his chief if the an
noyance were repealed. The insult being again of
fered, the commander was felled to the deck accord
ingly. A crowd of men assembled immediately, and
meditated the capture of our hero. He, however,
armed himself with a double-barrelled gun, and, until
the consul had been apprised of the occurrence, in
his engine-room, kept the whole dastardly crew at
buy, threatening to shoot the man who attempted
his capture. 'I he affair then terminotcd peaceably;
but the advice of the consul, to save himself from as
sassination, by a speedy flight, was wisely adopted
in good time by the gallunt Highlandman. When
questioned whether he would really have shot his
opponent, he replied, "Well, no; but I would have
just rim the gun-bamd into the first who approach
ed. While referring to this incident, we may men
tion a fact not yet generally known, namely, that the
rescue of the Acadia, when stranded at Tor Schell
ihg, was entirely secured by the exertions?the abi

Fobeign Missionary Society.?The rccelpta of
tho Foreign Missionary Society for the last yoor
were $110,081 O-Mjnd the expenditures for the same
time were $110,207 34. During the same time the
society have published the "Missionary Chronicle,"
in newspaper and oamnhlet edititions, 8,150 copies;
"Annual report of 1818," 7,850 copies; "Letters to
children," 0,000 copies. "Letters to Sabbath Schools"
6,000 copies. Since the last report, twenty-one new
missionaries have been sent out by tho board. Of
these, five were ordained ministers, two licenclatc
prcachers, one physician, ono superintendent of the
printing prcris in China, two male and two female
teachers, and eight the wives of missionaries.
The board has now under its care missions among
the Indiun tribes, In Africa, India, Slain,China, En
rope, und the Jews; ministers of the gospel, 49; phy
sicians, 3; licentiate prcachers, 2; male und female
teachers, 12; carpenter, farmer, Ac., 4; native Chris
tian teachers and catechists, not fully reported;
schools at moat of the stations; eleven church)* ?
printing pressea at four stations; the returns of the
European missions not included.
Socialism in Fbancb.?A banquet of the " priests
of socialism" took place on the 29th, April, 1849, at
the Barriere Poiaaonniere, and the Abbe Franchard
presided. Two other abbes, MM. Monllouis ana
Percy were prefent. About 400 men, women, and
children were present. The only members of the
party of tho mountain present were M. Bertholon
and M. Dain. The first toast given was " Aux Ouv
riers " by tho Abbe Mont ion is, who said he was a
republican socialist priest, by some called red repub
lican ; he wus a workman, as well as many whom
he addressed, as he was one of the workmen of tho ,
church. A variety of other toasts were given, among I
which was one to "Jesus of Nazareth, the father ol
socialism," and many of ihese toasts were received
with loudof criea M Vive la Montagne, vive Robes
pierre." M. Ileive proposed "To oUr absent brethren,
nnmps figured a few days since on the pillory,'5
which hepreceded by some expressions of s very vi
olent kind, which were recoived by loud crlea ol
"Vive Barbes." With the exception of these loud ex
clammatlons of feeling, every thing passed oH' in
perfect order.
Dy ing Gams.?We understand that our friends in
Binghamton, just now, luxuriate in the services of
firo Postmasters. It appears that the Polk appoin- 1
tee, being inspired with the genius of " How-over
ism," returned tha answer attributed to General
Taylor in acknowledging the receipt of Santa Ann*'-*
pofite note requesting him to surrender. Accord
ingly, he refused to give up to General Taylor's ap
pointee. At the latest dates, however, the chances
seemed to be going against the Polk man, as the
Administration, in violation of the spirit of strict
neutrality, had thrown its influence into the Taylor,
man's scsles; though both offices were still kept
j open, each claiming to bo tho Pos: office of Bing
hstnton. Welh "competition Is the life of busi
ness."?-AT. y. Tribune.
Tiib Rbcbnt Catholic CotwciL.?In addition to
the proposed elevation to archbishoprics of three of
the present seea, and the creation of a new biahop
rlc by this body, lately in session here, It is under
stood that the rope is also petitioned to make Prl
