Secession and the Democratic Leaders. Our Democratic contemporary is sadly troubled over Habbis' recent speech in Conzress. Hi9 bold avowal that the doctrine or sesesMon is that of the Democratic party fills ' it with con sternation. It flic for aid in refuting this damaging admission to James Bcchanan and C 0. Vallandigh am I It is welcome to all the consolation it can npt from these two worthies. When the Rebellion broke out, Buchanan's doctrine was that no State had a legal right to secede, but U' it did secede nobody had a right to prevent it. He acted on this pusillanimous; theory and while jworn to protect and defend the integrity of tne nation, and clothed with all its powers for that end, re fused to lay a straw In the way of the traitors who were breaking up the Union. Tie practically aided secession more than any other man. As to Vallandioham, he was the open friend and ally ot the Rebels through the whole war, and practically as much of a secessionist as Floyd or Jeff. Davis. But why does not our contemporary go to the real Democratic leaders for their opinion on this subiect? Why does it not consult Mason and Slidbll, Jefp. Davis and Benjamin, Toombs, Stbvbns, Breckinridge, and the like? These are the men of brains in the Democratic party, and its true leaders. Tbe Democratic party has been practically a minority in the North for tbe last ten years. Its peat of power has been in the South, and there is the proper place to look for a true exposition of its views. Do this, and what do we see f Why, we see that the Uebel lion was, In reality, a rebellion of the great lead ers of the Democratic party. We say this, because at the outbreak of the Rebellion the Democratic party had become localized and confined to the Souih. There was where its strength was. There was where its leaders led the people and dominated public sentiment. At the North it had ceaed to have power. Northern Demo crats had become the mere allies ot the South era leaders, who wielded the power ot' the party. They had no majorities to back them. They had become practically of no moment. Hence, Harris is right. Secession wa the doctrine of the great Democratic leadeis. The only men who had a ri?ht to speak for the party in 18G1 were the men who did speak, and who both spoke and acted for secession. And those great leaders do not now discard their old doctrine. They merely acknowledae that, for Hie present, secession cannot be carried out. As the New York Daily News remarked last Satur day, in a leader on this topic: "That question has been submitted to the arbitrament ot arms: and, so far as the mere in fluences of physical force can determine it. it has, for the lime being, been determined. The South accepts tbe result, in rpspect to it- pre sent practical application; but that acceptance does not imply any abandonment, in thowjht, of the principle upon widen, the secession mocement wasfounded." And It subsequently adds, in language which every true Union man shouIJ lay to bourn "If the ball e in the future, in the legislative halls, that battle that tbe radicals so much fear and deprecate, shou'd hereafter establish the right of secession, it will prove that in republics there is a power misrhtier than the sword to vindicate the right. But, to win that battle, the Xouth must have Uongressional representation." Here we have the Democratic programme in a nutshell. Restore the South to power in the nation. It will then be, as it was at the out break of the Rebellion, unanimously Demo cratic. Then comes the battle of the future to "establish the right of secession," and, under Democratic auspices, to regain the ' 'lost cause" for which the "stern statesman" iow pines and languishes in durance vile within the massive walls of Fortress Monroe. There is just one weak point in this nice little scheme, and that s that the people, who, at a cost of three hun dred thousand lives and three thousand millions of dollars, have just put down the Rebellion inaugurated by these Democratic leaders, are not quite ready to restore them to power. If it were not for this little difficulty the plan might possibly succeed. Aid lor Mexico. Hon. Thaddkus Stevens gave notice in the House of Representatives, on Saturday, of his intention to offer a resolution instructing the Committee on Foreign Affairs to inquire into the propriety of loaning the Republic of Mexico $20,000,000, on proper security, to enable said Republic to prevent the overthrow of its Government, and the establishment of a mo narchical government on the continent of North America. He followed up his notice with a powerful speech in favor of the Monroe doc trine, in which he spoke of the "Micawber policy of our Foreign Secretary," and eloquently urged the extending of aid to the struggling Republic. Mr. Stevens' speech strikes a chord which vibrates in every American "bosom. Tho over throw of a North American republic by foreign arms, and the establishment of an empire, with a scion of a foreign house at its head, is a matter to which cur people can never become recon died. Tbe Government of Maximilian was established in open defiance of the long settled and publicly avowed policy ot the United States. Our hands were tied at the time by our tremen. lou6 civil war, bo that we were in no condition to make a practical resistance to the consumma tion of the scheme; though, as Mr. Stevens says, "we do not forget the bold policy of Rome, which made her declare war against a powerful nation, and march a legion against her, to avenge an insult, while Hannibal was at her gates." As General Grant has on more than one occasion remarked, the overthrow of the Mexi can Republic was a part of the Rebellion. Certainly it never would have been consum mated, even if attempted, had it not been for the Rebellion. Mr. Stevens proposes to take a mortgage for the $20,000,000 on Lower California, Souora, Sinaloa, or Chihuahua. Doubtless this would ibs ample security but we think, ft better TIIE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, method of helping Mexico would be to buy these provinces at once, and pay ber the $20,000,000 down. Tbe control of the Gulf of California Is becoming almost a necessity to our Interests on the Pacific, and in Arizona and New Mexico. The people of these Mexican provinces would rejoice to become citizens of the United States, and their resources, whn developed, would add greatly to the wealth of the nation. Chihuahua has an area of 83,000 sq,uare miles and a population of 164,000. Sonora has an area of 100.000 square miles, and a population of 139,000. Sinaloa has an area of 33,000 square miles, and a population of 163,000. Lower California has an area ot 60,000 square miles, and a population of 12,000. Here is an area and a population sufficient tor several tine terri tories. Their mineral wealth Is very great, and they would give us an outlet to the Gulf of Cali fornia which would bp of inestimable Value to the interests of our interior domain. The Mexican Republic would gladly sell us those valu able povlnccs for money and material that would nspist her in OHviiiff herself from utter destruc tlon. The probability is we shall never again have so good an opportunity to further our own interests, and at the same time do a goo4 turn to a neighboring country, as by seizing ths golden moment to purchase thc.-e provinces of Mexico. Mr. Stevbnh l as exhibited the foresight of a true statesman in calling the attention of tun country at this time to this most important question. Revolution in tbe Code of Maritime Law Tue recent suggestion emanating fr m Austria, that during the anticipated war all merchant, vessels belonging to coutondinj nations t.houl 1 be exempt from seizure by any of the belligerent", is a revolution in the me'hod of conducting in ternational struggles which cannot but be treated as an advance of civilization. The as sent of Prussia has already been accorded to this amelloiatiiiflr amendment In the code of warfare, and it Is probable that the concurienee of all the powers will very easily be secured. The mighty effect of this suggestion can only be appreciated by reference to the modo in which vessels engaged In the carrying trade were treated in recent years. In all wars, any merchantman sailing under the flag of a hostile power was liable to be con. fiscated by any of the men-of-war belonging to the foe. It mattered not whether the 'freightage was entirely merchant in its character. It wad of small importance whether it had lint and medicine, ammunition and cannon, or perfumes and silks. The vic tor did not examine the invoice. He simply set it cn Are and left it to destruction. We have had instances of this custom up to the very latest war. In our struggle with Great Britain, in 1812, the great forte of our navy was the faci lity with which it destroyed the commerce of Eugland, and the grand means by which all op position was subdued, not by military, but by navnl exploits. Our foe cared not for the lives of her soldiers, but she could not bear to see her vessels in flames. The steps of civilization, however, have been gradually made percepti ble. The system of privateering was abolished by international convention. Thereafter all pri vateers were pirates, and the great caiue of complaint held by us against Great Britain was the total disregard evinced by her in regarl to the law. It would seem, however, that the day has at lost arrived when neutral com merce will not be prostrated by the contests of rival powers. How ereat an advantage has been thus secured is attested by a comparison with the policy pursued during the Napoleonic wars. Not only were all the vessels of one con tending power declared lawful prey to seizure by tbe navy of tne other, but even neutrals were included, under certain restrictions. The infamous Edict of Nantes, and the equally ob noxious retaliation the British Orders In Coun cildeclared all the ports of France and England closed and in a stale of blockade. Thus eveL vessels under the flags of friendly nations, such as the United States, were openly attacked and captured, if seen endeavoring to enter' any of the great ports of Europe. All the commerce ot the se"B9 was, in lact, placed tributary to the passion or avarice of belligerents, and the risrhts ot property and of justice openly disregarded because the power rested in the hands of the violators of law. A better day has now dawned; and how much brighter it is can only be realized by contrast. Tnen all was subiect to attack; now all are exempt from danger. The very forces at war are now within the strict control of a general law, and an Austrian merchantman cannot be attacked by Prussian, nor can Italian vessels bs captured or destroyed. The lion and the lamb lie down together; and we may yet see the day when a fleet of Prussian vessels will be acting as a peaceful convoy to a navy of mer chantmen sailing under the Austrian flag. So great a revolution has thus been effected in the sentiment?, as well as In tbe practice of the age. While, as philanthropists, we hail with ioy this improvement, yet, as Americans, a little selfish regret obtrudes itself. It must be remem bered that in all the history of European wars we And an unexampled prosperity secured to the merchants of America. Holding, as we ever have, tbe doctrine of non-intervention in foreign affairs, we have ever held the attitude of neu trals, and have generally been exempt from molestation durins tbe progress of the struggle. As the flags ot the belligerents were unable to protect peaceful merchantmen from capture by their opponents, safety has been secured by throwing all of the vast carrying trade of the world into our hands. We have always had, during a European war, a monopoly of the com merce of both worlds. We have been a privi leged character, and, as such, have been exempted from all the vexations and damages incident to a European power while a European war continued. Under this reform, however, we will lose tbii pre-eminence. We will no longer be the only power whose flag will bring protection. The very contending forces themselves are exempt from attack, and no need exists for transferring to American bottoms what can be as safely car ried in the vessels of native build. We will thug be part losers, for our mercantile marine had calculated on being the means of carrying all the commerce of Europe. We will lose mil lions by the moral revolution; yet we cannot but hail it with r-atisf'uction, for the day may yet come when, beneath its protection, our vessels can sail sately, while we contend with any enemy. The great commercial nations, like Entrland and the United States, may hall with peculiar joy this renovation. Scott and Cass Remarkable Coincidences. TnsBs are many remarkable points of coinci dence in tbe lives of tbe late Generals Scott an J Cass. They were bora about tbe same tiro Cass in 1782 and Scorr in 1786. Each studied and practised law. They entered public life at nearly the same time Scorr at a captain in tbe army in 1808, Cass ai a member of tbe Ohio Legislature In 1806. They both participated in tbe war of 1812 Cass as a colonel of volunteers, and Scorr as lieutenant-colonel in the regular army, and each rose to the rank of brigadier general. From that time forward they both re mained In public life. Scorr was offered the position of Secretary of War under President Madison, and Cass was Secretary of War under President Jackson. Each was a Presidential candidate Cass in 1848, Scott In 1832, and each was defeated. The slavery question was the cause of the defeat in each instance the defec tion of the Free Soilers under Van Bcben de feath g Cass In '4S, and the general defection of Southern Whigs delcatina Scorr In "2. Each retired from public life at about Hie same time; and now their deaths have occurred at an in terval of only a few weeks. It is not often that tho careers of two great men run so closely side by side for so long a time, and. present so many points of striking similarity. The Movements tn the Dnchies; The first movements oi actual warfare between Prusjia and Austria are takins place in tho pro vinces of Schleswig and llolstoin. The former of these has been occupied, since their conquest lrom Dcumnrk, by Prussia, the latter bv Aiij. tria. General Manteuffel being the Military Governor of Schleswig, and General Gadlenz tbe Military Governor ot llolstein. On the 7th the Prussians, under the command of General Flibps, crossed the Elder, the boundary between the province, and entered Holxtelu, and are said to be under orders to occupy Riid;burr, Kiel, and Ttzchoo, important towns in tho north em part of llolstein. Meanwhile the Austrian forces which have been occupying Holstein are concentrating at Altona, in the southern part of that province. Should Austria be in clined to contest tbe actual occupation of llol stein. she has full communication with her base of operations through Saxony and nanovcr. The more probable immediate seat of the war is Silesia, the southernmost province ol Prussia, and where already th mass of tho Prusian army is being concentrated. The Horrors of War. The impending wr between Prussia and Aus tria seems to be very unpopular with tho peo ple of the former country. The accounts from there tell us of women collecting at the railroad stations, and throwing themselves upon the track in front of the car in which th"ir hus bands are about to bo conveyed away to tun army. At one place a ruse had to be resorted to to get the soldier off. Their wives were told to get into t ars in the rear ot the train, and they should be allowed to accompany their husbands. Ol course the -poor creatures were deceived, and left behiud. The Prussian mili tary service is compulsory, and the hardships and suffering produced bv a great war can hardly be overestimated. The game of war may be noble sport lor sovereigns, but it is woe to the poor people who on either side furnish "foo l tor powder." The Otero Mnrdcr. AI'l'EAHAN'CE OF THE PRISONERS GONZALES AND FELLICER. These two men, convicted of the murder of Jose Garcia Otero, and now lying in Kings county ail, seem to take the decision ot the touitof Appeal", confirming their sentence of death, without any apparent emotion. It would appear as it they had made up their minds that they were to sutler for the atrocious and cold blooded crime of which they were accused and convicted. Gonzales has improved considerably fince his delul at the Forty-fourth Precinct Station House. He has grown fleshy, and many ot the mot repulsive features ot his countenance are considerably softened down. He is much more communicative than Pellicer, and has lost a great del ot that sullen and dogged munnor which he exhibited in the beginning. Pellice, on the contrary, has become quite testy and un communicative, and seems to realize the uncom fortable situation in which he is placed. He is quite thin and delicate, and would hardly be recognized as the burly, good-humored, rather fine-looking sailor who was brought to Captain Waddy by Roundsman Smith. Both of the men nie constantly attended by their spiritual advi sers, and Beem to have acquired thereby much consolation and resignation. They are confined in cells 13 and 14, at the end of the first corridor n the Jail. They will be brought up before the Court of Oyer and Terminer, for resentence as soon as tbe District Attorney can obtain a hear ing. A. Y. Herald. Alleged Frauds on the Government. A POWDER SPECULATION AT THE BROOKLYN NAVY TAKD A UNITED STATES NAVAL OfFICES IN CLOSE ARREST. A few davs ago, a United States naval officer in the Ordnance Department ot the Brooklyn Navy Yard was arrested, charged with dufraud ing the Government to the extent of a large amount of money, by selling a schooner load of funpowder, and appropriating the proceeds to is own benefit. The matter was brought to litht in an accidental way, and is as follows: On Thursday of lat week, a gentleman doing business in New York called at the Ordnance Depaitment of the Navy Yard, and asked if there was any powder for sale. The officer told him there was. Upon inquir ing the price, and being told, tbe gentle man exclaimed. "How is it you have raised the price?" "We have not," sail the otficer; "neither has there been any sold at private sale."' Tbe gentleman thereupon said: "iTes there has; for I boutht a schooner load from the officer commanding at Ellis' Island magazine early last spring, and only paid so much,' naming the price. Tbe gentleman made turther disclosures in regard to tbe ma'ter, when tho facts -were communicated to Admiral Bell, commanding the Navy Yard, and also to the Bureau ot Ord nance at Washington. Mr. Reach, a Govern ment detective, was put to work on the case, which he lollowed no until he got tbe delinquent into his custody, when he forthwith was trans ferred to the "brig" of tbe United States ship Vermont. Commander H. A. Wise, the chief of the Naval Bureau of Ordnance, came to this city frm Washington, and Is now investigating the matter. It 1b estimated that thp load of powder was worth from $25,000 t $,0,000. We give the obove statement as tbe rnmor goes, the authorities at tbe Navy Yard peremp torily refusing to divulge any of the facts. Ar. Y.HeraUi. CHESTNUT ST.
