We. doubt if there has existed in any coun t try or in any age a class of persons so entirely peculiar as the professional Southern corres pondent of theradical pressof the North. He is abreature of a new genus. Begottenof fanati cisam and borne of imposture, he combines in his person a show of sincerity with -a genius for misrepresentation unequaled anywhere under the sun. There have been, at various periods of time. earnest fanatics to whose d diseased imaginations the most harmless facts would convey an idea of wrong. There have also been untruthful men, who-to secure some personal aim, would coin from their own evil minds, the most extravagant fictions. And in Sthe declining .days of Imperial Rome there was a class of base "delators" who, to win the favor of the sovereignof the hour, would point out to the vengeance of power the innocent victims whom they desired to immolate. But never before in any age, have political convulsions thrown to the surface a class of men, who like most of the correspondents of the radical press, combine so many evil qualities with so little to redeem their faults. We can hardly call them desighedly vicious; for most of them do not appear to possess any real principle. They are employed to misrepresent, and they appear to execute the taskas as mere matter of business. Like the adventurers who sought the new-found riches of the fallen Timon, "they are not thieves, but men whomuach do want ;" and they prey greedily for reward upon the good reputation of a whole people. 'They seem, too, like the gentry to whom we have referred, indisposed to "give over their trade," and to have resolved a continuance of their perversions of fact, inasmuch as "there is no time so miserable, but a man may be truae !" SBut having fulfilled to order the task of misrepresentation they were sent to perform, they are equally willing, 'for a " consideta oaon," 6rtaefute themselves-not through the -columns of the paper which employs them, it is true, but through some other channel. With a shameless' effrontery, which is a inarked element: of their character, they will 8snualywonfess that they were not employed 4o -rite truth or to'collecficti -tar thbir joir but to write or to fabricate what would a.s rreeable to their employera and -would advance the interests of the pprty fqr Whose tastes they cater. ,The attitude taken by someof these cor. respondents in reference to the recent riots in New Orleans will, illustrate their qualities as a class. Such shameless perversions of fact have seldom been uttered, as were sent abroad to excite in the Northern mind a feel ing of prejudice andhatred against the South ern peoile. Unfortunately the stories gener ally reached ears which were but too willing p to credit any extravagances. They had al ready been educated, by similar'misrepresen tations from- the same elass-of teachers, tol believe any enormity which might be charged I by the most malignant imagination. The very fact that:such a class of persons cen exist and prosper, and give a certain tone d to public sentiment, is in itself an instirictive b lesson:- It is-but a corollary to the fact of the v existence of the. radical,,,partys Its. whole F policy is based upon a wrongful disregard of tl the rights, of other-citizens; and it is only 5 Iirotigh the distorted meesium of false logic,: m and an actual perversion of trn, that 'ti er 4 mdd caa be stt d. not e w dre ; wich the Jleaders of that 'party seek.l 'To make the worse appearthe better reason," ;o diatgrfaets,,to pal hoff the ba mietisof nvention for the true coin of sincerity, and to rqteethe truths they cannot wholly e- oil' geal in the false lights of deception, constitute their chief means of success; and these arts have been so successfully cultivated that the st radial mind seems at length to have been inu-` p dowed withi qualify s hich migl.t not inap- so propriately be styled a genius for misrepre sentation. It i this siniplncipled want of the radical fr party which has called into existence a corps IP' of defamers who seem to respect nothing that d is sagred, who obey only the genius of wrong, cld who, like faithful missionaoies of evil, are b, laily engaged in sowing the .wind that our e nhappy country may some- day reap the Whialwind. Falsehood may for a time pre- dl sail, but a policy based upon wrong cannot mdure. It carries with it the seeds of its own lestruction. Under the ripening influence of tat rime they will grow, and the policy of false- u1 rood will perish, for "Truth is mighty and be will prevail." as to FOREIGN TOPICB. Lately the Atlanticcable gave us the brief . to outline of a manifesto by the French govern- n cit meot,. gocerening recent occurrences in e 'n- Europe. This manifesto is in the form of a to circiliar, and popular opinion attributes it to de the hand of the Emperor Napoleon himsnelt From the.brief synopsis which has reached us to we iqfs thattll axafesto is pait.in. its n- tone-which was to.be :epe ted.-agd that it f re attenps to show that recet events have been t on favorable to France-which again was to be a ut anticipated. It would not beseem the Frenor gh Emperor, who aspires to a sort of providen es, tial infallibility, and to the character of a Uni- ° is versal arbiter, to admit that any definitive - event could be prejuditial to ranc;"eduild. rot bee,,in short, anything else that advantageous. to that country. To suppose that during a Napoleonic reign, events could be so inso- c 'st lentlyindependent of the Napoleonic will as to Asoumed shapeof aotagoniisn to Fiench a be interq ts, would lie to admit that the founda ild tions of the Napoleonic power are become us rickety at last. Hence the spasmodic effort to grasp the Rhenish provinces of Prussia in en accordance with that ductite theory of com d. pensation which assumes that France must ae a.lwtsys get something to balance anything that ist any other country may get,, was abandoned t ce almost as soon as made. Prussia, 'after the X- sudden and complete humiliation of her im in perial adversary, was a power not by anly as means to be sneezed at, or trifled with ; and Count Bismarck's "No," had acquired just as Id much force as Napoleon's "Yes." To the je dtmande of the latter, the je refuse of the for mer was the winning hand. an So the French Emperor now declares that at- nothing pleases him better than the actual a situation ; that he regards with a very friendly c he eye the territorial extonsion of Prussia; that, be j. fact, it 'all redounds to the advantage of he France, and that peace is the earnest desire r be and aspiration of his imperial soul. But, in the meantime, he has lost the services of his most able and zealous counselor. The resig fiationuof Drouyn de l'Huys is popularly sup i- pospd to be ca protest against French acqui escence in the; successes of Prussia, and against the evacuation of Rome by the French b forces. This event will, it seems, be soon ac d complished. At the last advices preparations id were making for the evacuation, and, in fiact, tf the date has passed at which the movement n 10 was to be completed. Thus the long occu pc.ucy of Rome by French armies, lasting pi from 1849 till 1866, a period of seventeen years, is terminated, and events are left free to shape themselves in accordance with s. purely Italian tendencies and designs. The result shows the inefficacy, in these times, i- of contending against the march of in events and the decrees of public opinion. us The occupation of Rome was perhaps the e most cherished point in the programme of a Napoleonic policy. Its object was threefold S to conciliate to the Napoleonic dynasty the ts favor of ultra-MIontanist opinion ; to lessen ye the influence of Austria in Italy by substitut ne ing French for Austrian protection, and finally I to prevent the consolidation of the Italian in kingdom, and the acquisition by' Victor re Emmanuel's government of the power and he prestige which that government would derive at from the annexation of the Roman States. nt Political events have rendered valueless the adhesion of the ultra-Montanists; Austrian influence in Italy was practically terminated a by the peace of Villafranca, and is now utterly of annihilated by the loss of the Lombardo Venetian kingdom; andatlast, VictorEmman uel is left to work his supreme will upon the temporal dominions of the Pope. Italy was m before the war a State of about 22,000,000 of a people. By the treaty of peace it receives sy Venetia, which, according to the latest cen ar sus, had a population of 2,446,056. The withdrawal of the French troops from Rome Snakes it,.moreover, highly probable that the so Roman question will soon be solved by the annexation of the remainder ,of the Papal . States, with a population of about 700,000, to the kingdom of Italy. The Italian kingdom r will then become a power of over 25,000,000 inhabitants. Thus the national unity of Italy is nearly complete. Austria has still about 500,000 subjects who speak the Italian language, and are Italians in' sentiment. Switzerland has an Italian canton (Tessin). with a population of 110,000. France still owns the Island of I 'Corsica; which' is p edominantly Italian; but, t altogether, these districts count less than one million inhabitants. The national party of I Italy will not.abandon the wish to regain all I 'these districts for the Italian nationality; but I it can. hardly be expected that an agitation dike that for the annexation of Venice and I Rome can hereafter be kept up. Italian f statesmen can henceforth devote their whole energy to the consolidation of the kingdom, the improvement of its wretched financial condition, ahdu the dlevelopment of all its re sources. ' S Polltical. t Gen. Cster declines a nomination for Congress in the First Michigan District. Out of nine counties heard from, in the recent local election in California, seven have gone for the administration ticket. The telegraph dis- I patches, which are in the hands of the radicals, make no mention of such significant facts as these. 1 Senator Cowan, ex-Governors Johnston and Big ler, of Pennsylvania, with several other prominent Pennsylvanian4, arrived in Washington on the 17th, and on the 18th had special audience with the President, Secretary McCulloch and Postman. ter General Randall, with reference to the Phila delphia appointments.

B" telegraph we learn that some of these appofntments have already been made. " Mr. C. T.

The Richmond Examiner says that the building up of a radical party in the South will be a very up-hill business, for no political organization can be constructed without soime respectable material as a nucleusn. Brevet Brigadier General James F. Hall, late Colonel First New York engineers, has written a letter stating his approval of the Cleveland (sol diers') convention, on the 17th inst. He has,al ways been a Republican, but opposes the radical elements of the party, and thinks "there never was a more short-sighted policy or fanatical folly 13 than was displayed by Congress in attempting to place the party on the narrow, sectional, and un constitutional basis now declared tjy them." A Norfolk, Virginia, paper announces that a convention of the " loyal Union men of North Carolina" was to be held in Raleigh, on Thursday, the 20th day of September, " to consult together 'dnthe present condition of the country.'" Major Gen. Rawlins, chief of staff to General Grant, a thorough conservative, has been waited upon by a delegation of gentlemen from Illinois. tendering him the nomination for Congress for the I State at large, in opposition to the renegade John A. Logan. The general has not yet made up his mind in the case. Geeov. Morton refused to attend the so-called coi vention at Philadelphia. His organ at Indian.polis says it was not onaccountof Fred. Douglass being a delegate as some malicioas persons insinuated, but on "account of the press of private matter." Col. Benjamin o . Smith, Democratic anid con servative candidate for the governorship of West Virginia, has challenged Gov. Boorman to diacuse the political situation throughout the State. Boor man sent word in reply that he was "not pre- t pared to make any answer." Thie Democrats of the eighth congressional dis trict of Indiana have decided not to nominate a caundidate for Congressman, and commend to the suffrage of their party John Purdue, the noninee of the Johnson Republicans.

The bounty on wolves scalps has eccordingly been raised to $20. n The treasury department has given notice tf that hereafter it will not acknowledge the t, receipt of "conscience money," if the amount a sent is less than one dollar. This notice is sf given, we suppose, because the treasury of 11 ficials are convinced that the public plunders it will not-restrict their operations to a single n dollar, and as a gentle reminder to those who d become conscience-stricken that the whole n amount stolen ought to be returned. '.e - SalDAcorn.rr.-Ayoung man named Joseph il Poland was accidentally shot and almost in stantly killed at Cohasset, Mass., Monday, by the accidental discharge of a gun in the hands of a companion named Claflin. They L were out upon the marshes on a shooting ex cursion. Young Poland, while picking up some birds he had shot, asked his companion if he would not like to shoot some also, and handed him the gun with the muzzle pointing toward himself. As young Claflin took the piece it was accidentally discharged, and the load entered the side of Poland. Both were from Boston. SENSITIVE AFFECTIOv.--Joseph Watson and wife were riding down a steep hill in Andover, Conn., Friday, when a wheel of their vehicle came off and both were thrown out. Mrs. Watson sprung up and found that her hus band was insensible. He was taken to the nearest farm house, and reviving exclaimed: "IMy back is broken, and I am going to die." This frightened his wife so much that she went into convulsions, andin twenty minutes was dead. Ir. Watson has since recovered. A daughter, fifteen years old, has become in sane on account of the death of her mother. In Western Arkansas a silver mine has been struck, which for several days yielded eighty pounds daily, and then became exhausted.
