That the Union Parly, first organized in Georgia in 1850, is destined ta lorni this nucleus of a great National Republican Party, we have always believed.

Rui it may be asked, have we any principle in common, and what are they ? We answer, yes; and some of the leadin r articles in our po litical creed may be found below, and read and understood by all men. 1 hey are 1st. The maintenance of ihe Rights of the States as inditpentably necessary to the union ot the Stales. 2d. The maintenance of the Compromise of 1850, as a sacred and final settlement of all those delicate questions which it invol ves, and the consequent rejection of sectional agitation and aggression. 3d.

The avoidance of all entangling and embarrassing alliances with other nations, but sympathising with them when strtisgling for freedom and constitutional liberty. 5th. The lawful acquisition of such territory as the increasing wants of the people may de maud, and its incorporation into ihe confederacy, under such restrictions, and sue.li only, as the Federal Constitution clearly and explicitly pre scribes. b'th. A fair and equitable distribution among all ihe States, of the proceeds arising from the sale ol the public domain. 7th. A strieily Revenue Tariff, giving iiow- ever, by just and equitable discriminations, in- cidental protection to American industry. In view of the indelicate, unwarrantable, un- luntruciiiru, nnu perinciuus 1 n le i ic re nee oi me present Federal Administration in local politics, we would add another to our creed, in addi- tion lo the forgoing; viz : 8th.

I'utua,,, ( Of all the countries conquered by the Span iards on thisco.-.tiiiM.t, Peru presented the most remarkable evidences of progress from barbarism and approximation to civilization ,.... in its eniire polity and customs even the refine ment and cultivation of i,e intelligent Aztecs, whose beautiful city of Mexico, as it lay on tli bosun ol the lovely lake of Tezcuco, was, tak en hy itself, the 0st remarkable instance of barbaric splendor and the greatem triumph of uncivilized intellect, of which history gives us any account. When the avarice and fierce proselylitin of the Spaniards first led them to the distant and almost inaccessible coasts of Peru, they found a far more extended empire than forms the pres ent limits of ihe Republic of that name. It stretched alono; the Pacific coast from the se cond degree of north to the thirty -seventh of south latitude, and embraced the modern l(e nublicsof Ecuador. Peru, nnd Holm and Chili. It cipital was C.izco. from which diverged four irreat roads leading to the four parts into which the empire was divided. These roads are among the prea lest of ancient Peruvian achievements, and are indeed wonderful works for untutored Indians to have accomplished. I hey were built of heavy flag, f f,,r stone and were conducted OVer pathless sierras cover ed wnli snow; were cut for leagues through soli.l rock; pasted, by stairways, over lofty precipi ces ; crossed rivers on bridcres swung in the air; " V ' "" oi nioeons depth filled up w i.. mum masonry, ami thus traversed the wuom country; one of them alone reaching an extent of nearly two thousand miles. Along these magnificent highways, always kept in perf-et order, every ten miles wore buildings of stone for the accommodation f the public business and of the armies ol ilia empire ; few others ever traveling in Peru. Im mense granaries and depots of arms in fortified buildings were located at suitable distances along the entire routes. No man could he rich, nor could any one ever become poor in Peru. No title in the soil was allowed lo the people ; the Inca was the sole owner of the freehold and permitted mere ly a right of occupancy ; the whole land beino each year parceled out to the entire population". It was a thoroughly agrarian system. Ths subjects labored first for their o-n.l il,. . then for the support of the government, and' lastly for themselves.

Each year a census of the whole poople and of all their products and manufactures was taken, and recorded in their ijuipucnmnyiu or registers, and transmitted to the capital with great accu racy, though the art of writing and the idea of an alphabet were wholy unknown lo them. The postal system was unknown in Europe previous to the discovery of Mexico and Peru. Relays of eouriers were placed all along the public roads, am! intelligence was transmitted and parcels carried by footmen, hundreds of miles in a day. The news of a war or rebellion was thus at once brought to the court, and the army marched along the national highways increasing their numbers if needed as they progressed. The conquered province was at once made a part of the empire by the removal of thousands of its people to a distant and peaceful part ofthe counlry ; and as many reliable citizens with iheir families were remov ed in turn to the toiiquc-nd country, there for ever to remain. Hut we must pause. We have neither the space nor time lo write lhe history and coudiliou ol Peru at the time of the conquest, either as to its bocial, civil or religious customs. Our design was only to enlist lhe attention and in terest of those not familiar with Prescott's Con- luest ot Peru or the volume before us, in a subject full of instruction and interest amount ing almost to the romantic. lhe antiquities of 8L.cn a people, lo some ol whose remarkable peculiarities we have referred, must be aud are of intense interest. We have not bad the leis ure to read this work, translated from the Spau ish by Dr. Haw ks, but if it is at all comparable to the production of our own great countryman already referred lo, who ias written in prt up on some of the same topic to which this book is addressed, it will prove a most valuable ad dition to our literary wealth.

The Treatv of Alliance between France and England, It is stated that the treatv of alliance agreed and signed by Count Walewski on the pari ol r ranee, and Lord Clarendon on the part of England, guaranteeing the integrity of Turkey, was dispatched immediately by couriers lo Berlin and V ienna, with an intimation that from the day ol its arrival attach of these cap itals a period of seven days would be allowed to the cabinets of Prussia aud Austria to determine upon their assent or refusal to enter into the ar rangement. If agreed to, well and good; if rejected, it was to be understood that France and England would take Ihe settlement and re sponsibilities of this Eastern controversy into their own hands. Il is inferred from the terms of the treaty, that Russia will be required forth with to evacuate the Danubian Principalities, or that, in refusing, she haxards the momentous consequences of an immediate joint declaration of war from England and France.
