In ac i'i n to miKh other interesting matter, today's inside pa^es contain la e and important news fri m Ke>r Sltxico, including a thridiug nar rative of tbe adventures and sufferings of Mrs. Wil son during the period of her captivity among the Cfltuanche Indians; leMers from Harri-bjrg and Old Point Comfort ; the Preach iutri^ues at St. Domingo ; com muni cation relative toob-ecne titer a I ture aud the Ladies' Five Points Mission, Ac. The European Uueatlon. Private advices from London add something to what we knew before of the Turkish ques tion. Public rumor iu England charges the British Minister at Constantinople with secretly favoring the Russian cause, and ascribes to the Cabinet feelings of actual disappointment at the news of the Turkish success at Kalefat. It is said that had it not been for the manoeuvres of the envoys of the Western Powers, the dis aster of Sinope would never have occurred: and iu confirmation of this statement the vex atious objections so frequently raised by Gen eral Baraguay De llilliers are quoted as evi dence of a secret though ill-concealed enmity to the Turkish came. It is generally believed Hat Prince Albert is uot a stranger to this inconsistency between the language and the actions of the government; but while his per son i- not spared in the public prints, the nation seems to look forward, with resignation if not with complacency, to the ultimate success of his efforts. In truth, as we have iiad occasion to observe over and over again in the course of this con troversy, if any one has any thing to gain by a war, it can only be Louis Napoleon. England s interests are certainly on 'he side of peace. She has her commerce to protect, her debtors to look after, her manufactures to sell, her taxes to diminish. In comparison with these, the motives which urge her to go to war are light Indeed: little more than the clamor ot a few idle journalists. Nor has Russia any sub stantial ground for plunging into a continental war. From such a coutest she could not hope to escape unscathed Dependent as Russia is upon England and France for the bulk of her manufactured imports, and excellent customers as they are both to her Baltic and her southern seaports, a war with either of them would be keenly lelt among the m>st intelligent and wealthy classes of the empire. So lar as money aud men are concerned, the Czar is perhaps as well able to undertake a wur us any oi the European powers. But where is his fleet? Where would his land forces be if the whole of the West advanced through Germany to Poland and threatened a second expedition to Mosoow? Turkey has still less interest to serve by going to war. She is risking her very existence. It is not an isolated victory on the Danube, or the capture of a stray fort here or there, that can save her if the war becomes a mat ter of years. Destruc tion to the Moslem would then seem inevitable. Destruction in defeat, under the ruthless foot of the Cossack soldiery; destruction in victory, for the Western allies of the l'orte would eventually injure her as fatally as the Czar himself. Who. then, is to gain anything by the threat ened war ? Not the masses of Europe, curbed under tlu> strong arm of large standing armios; not the monarchs, nor the dynasties of theC<?n tinent: nor yet the central Powers o." Europe, on whose soil the buttle would probably be fought. Louis Napoleon is the only man whose advantage might be furthered by a war. It would be of service to him in two ways. lie could hardly help achieving a ccrtain amount of military success, and that would not only add to his material power but would increase the popularity with which lie is now regarded by his subjects. In the second place, a European war would keep the public mind in France fixed on foreign affairs, and divert attention from his domestic policy. Experience has taught French sovereigns that tranquillity at Paris can only be purchased at the cost of peace abroad. M. Thiers knew it well when he strove to inaugurate a war policy under Louis Philippe ; but the old king lacked thc nerve for the task, and allowed Guizot to substitute a peace system which cradled the revolution into life. Louis Napoleoa has a bet ter chance for placing his foreign relations on a war footing than his predecessor. Louis Philips had but one foe to fight? England utd Guizot as well as be, saw plainly enoug that a war with Great Britain would cost more than it w?i worth. Louis Napoleon stands in a much better position. Russia is lets formidable and les p< pular in France than '?perfidious Albion," who, on her side, is so busily tugaged in watching Russia and tlie United Statin that the too has lorgotten her hereditary hatred of her neighbors across the channel Thus for the first time since the Jays o' the Stuarts, France aud England are united by the bonds of a solid alliance, having Louis Napoleon at its head; and tbe latter can safely prepare for a foreign war without fearing that another 1815 will mete out to him his uncle's fate. The question of war and peace would thus seem a question between Napoleon's will on the one side, and the permanent interests of Euro pean nations on the other. His past skill in diplomacy quite warrants us in saying that, if his mind is made up in favor of war, the odds will be at least equal. Nicholas of Russii is a child in his bands. Moic oi the tiewrlet Letter - General Pierce'* Free Soil Antecedents Again. The Washington Union , the central organ of General Pierce and his free soil coalition Cabi net, and all its dependant echoes throughout the country, insist upon it that the recent letters of Mr. John Cochrane and Judge Waterbury disprove the charges of the New York Heraxd concert-nig the free soil letter of General Pierce to the Van Buren Corresponding Committee of this State of 1848. The Cabinet organ and its country echoes pronounce the statements of Messrs. Cochrane and Waterbury as perfectly conclusive ? that they " crush out" the atrocious fabrications of the Herald, nnd that the diabolical insinua tions and impudent inuendoes of Bennett are scattered to the winds. Not satisfied with this, the Cabinet organ and its echoes have taxed their abilities to the utmost in their de lightful expletives against the editor of this journal. Liar, caitiff, Scotchman, candidate for the French mission, scoundrel, villain, vaga bond, libeller, thief, burglar, rufllan. and awful wretch, are among the f (Tittering epithets ap plied to us by the spoilsmen of the administra tion prtsses. We are described as being Satan ic, as worse than Satan ? a great deal worse than Satnn. In fact, the wrath and the violence of this crusade of the spoilsmen against the editor of tbe Hkiuu), taken altogether, discloses him to be possessed of a more magnificent com bination of intellectual power and moral wick edness than any hero, historical or fabulous, living or dead, natural or supernatural, from the creation of Adam down to the present day. If we mny b< lieve the half of the flue things that have lutely come pouring in upon us from all sides. Satan himself wa? not our equal in audaciouB rascality, not even in that grand address of his reported by Milton as having come off at a grand Cabinet council ot all the fallen angels in Hell, the subject being a decla ration oi war against the kingdom of Heaven. But notwithstanding all these ?omplimentary epithets comparisons, accusations and allusions, it is evident that we are good for something, or we should never have been officially designated as the leading organ of the opposition to the administration and the spoilsmen. True, we only hold this position till a vacancy occurs in the mifsion to France ; but meanwhile we must do our duty in the important oflice assigned to us. We, therefore, recur to General Pierce's Scarlet letter ol 1848, written to J?.hn Cochrane, and to a part of the evidence sustaining our allegations, wnich has fallen into our hands from various quarters. The first intimation we had of this precious doenment way from a correspondent in Ohio suggesting that some of the democratic free soilers of this city had in their possession a most iivaluable letter from Geueral Pierc, written in the memorable year of 1848. We commenced casting about us for the memoran dum, nnd soon traced it home to our free soil democratic fellow-citizen, John Cochrane. Upon this dl-covery we despatched two diplomatic agents to Mr. Cochrane to inquire if he really had the 1< ttcr in question in his breeches pock ets or in his bureau, or in some old barrel of refuse papers ; and also to obtain the letter or a copy of it, it accessible or convenient to the Surveyor of the Port. Mr. Benjamin Galbraith with this view, w is one of the gentlemen who waited upon Mr Cochrane. And be it understood, that Mr. Gal braith is not a politician, but a distinguished, yet unobtrusive, member of the legal profes sion. whose oflice is 127 Fulton street, New York. The following is the report of his visits to and conversation with Mr. Cochrane : ? M .<. (iALBlUlTl/S ) tTTKH. 127 Fcxtox s'KKKr, N'sw York, ) Jan. 25, 1864. \ To thk Edith k op tits Hskald:? l,a?tly I bad a conversation with James Gordon Bennett, the eoitor ot ?he N-w York ilia lo, about TiolitiM, in winch the name of Frankua Pierce, the l'rt ident of the United State*, wai mentioned. 1) nbts w ere entertained and expiessed as to the sourdness of bis political opinion*. The abolition speech which he made in New lianiMhire was re ferred to. The free soil letters which he is alleged to bate written, and which were said t> have been lutely round amoug the papers ol a late distinguished New Ilai- psbire politician, were also mentioned, aud particularly the letter written bjr bim to the Van Buren free soil ratification meeting, held at New York in 1848, was named. Thin la-t one was said to be in the possesion of John Cochrane, the Surveyor of tbe Port of New Y'ork Upon the name of John Cochrane being mentioned, Mr. Bennett asked me if 1 was not acquainted with him I said I was. He then asked uie if I thought be would give me the letter. I told him I did not know, but that If I sa* Mr. Cochrane 1 would ask bim. I saw Mr Cochrane soon after this, and I asked bim if he had the letter which was wtitten by Franklin Pieroe in 1848, to the meeting held in New York in that same \ear, for tbe purpose of ratifying and confirming tbe prcceediiiK* which had lately taken place in the Utica or Buffalo conventions, and the nominations which were there made, in his posses sion. Mr. Coch an * said he had the Utter rtj rred to I then asked him If he would gi.e it to ine. and he said he wonld if he ooold find it. but that it some time since he saw i* , and that he hardly uew where It was, but that he would look for it, and send it tome. Not having received it, I saw Mr. Cochrane again, and he told me be had not jet found it, "for,-' said he, "I have been moving my office from Wall street to Trinity Building, and my papers have got somewhat disarranged, but I am sure 7 hare it, and u ill find it for you; I taw it fot n great ivhlt since; I < JM fit a roll of paper # , and in that roll ofpaptr ? thn, I found thu identical letter, tei tten by Prtnk hn Pierre to the ratification meeting m 1848." 1 then asked bim as to Us contents, and he said he did rot recollect very distinctly, but to far at he re cr Uected , U i rat a genera/ approval of the course that had bitn pursued, and the n??ni nation* made u t the I'tica or Buffalo Coni-r>ition in 1K48. 1 then a^ked bim why it hsd not l*en read and published at the time or immediately ater Uie meet ing; he said he did not know, but be supposed that it was because tbe officers of the meeting, and he particularly m>ntioned Judge IVaterbury, emmier id Franklin Pierce a ma; of to luile note or in flumce at that t,mc. that to read or ;>u blish a le ter of hit would do wo food to them u halite, an / henct the reason of Ut being thrown m$\ de along with a num her of others, at ml. rely w<n thlets, until he becaoM President of the United States. Respect/ally yours, fte., .Brsjaiiih G albaaitu. This statement of Mr. Galbraith, written down some days before the letters of Messrs. Cochrane and Waterbury were brought out. proves, we undertake to say, the contents of that Scarlet letter of 1848. Another gentleman has tar nished testimony to the same purport. Buj I this was before there was any consternation ex- 1 cited oil the subject, and before any pressure from the White IIoubc was brought to bear upon tbe memory of Mr. Cochrane. Ho is ft man el truth and candor, and very apt, point blai.k. to tell all that he know.-1. We presume that be told all he remembered of the letter of '48 plumply to Mr. Galbraitb, without the slightest suspicion that he was lighting a bomb shell. Eut the White House influence operates ae a narcotic in some cases, and is favorable to lorgetfulness. And so we have no doubt in the world that Mr. Cochrane and Judge Waterbury told all that they recollected at the time of writing their letters, having forgotten the ma terial part of the evidence within the last tew preceding days. But to settle the question be tween Mr. Cochrane and Mr. Galbraith, and between the Herald and Gen. Pierce, why not bring out the letter ? Has it vanished ?? has it been tpirited away ? Produce the letter. But there are other letters in existence? a whole batch of thim down East somewhere confirming the free soil associations and in clinations of Gen. Pierce, in 1848. Wo expect yet to public some of them before long. There can be no doubt of the free soil affiliations of Gem J'ierce in that campaign. Ask the leadiug Van Buren free soilers of '48 if they did not believe Gen. Pierce to be with thsm in sympathy and in principle? Ask Gen. John A. Dix, Benjamin 1> . Butler, John Van Buren, Azariah C. Flang. ami Martin Van Buren himself, if they did couut Gen. Pierce. In 1848, as among their partizans in feeding, and opposed to Gen. Cass? Question those m.n upon the subject; they may be re lied upon. Give us their testimony. Try John Van Euren, to begin with. Nothing has oc curred, that we know of, to weaken his memory. Call him out Under i-uch circumstances and facts, who can longer doubt that tbe Baltimore Domination was a fraud upon the democratic convention, or that the election of Gen. Pierce was a fraud upon the honest but deluded American p*eeple. With 6uch antecedents as those of the Buffalo platform and the Van Buren free soil party ; with such tree soil associa tions as those of the present Cabinet, and our New York ofHce-bolders. there is danger, we re peat. of treachery from the administration to wards Judge Douglas and the South on the Ne braska question. The compatriots of the Van Buren free toil rebellion are hardly the leaders to be trusted in the repeal of the Missouri line. We here drop the Scarlet letter for the pre sent. But we have other collateral proofs iu our possession of the free soil proclivities of Gen. Pierce in '48 which, when brought to light, will -wonderfully refreshen" the memory of Mr. Cochrane. The French Intrigues at St. Domingo. ? About the middle of December last we puniish td some- intelligence in relation to the de mands said to have been made by the French commandant on the Dominican go vernment, which exposed what we conceiv ed to be the ulterior designs of France with respect to that island. One of our French con temporaries ? La ratrie ? has, as will l>e seen by an extract in another part of this day's paper, taken us roundly to task lor the news that we gave upon that occasion. In its desire to be epi grammatically B Jvere, our contemporary has been beti ayed into a still greater l'orgetfulness of facts than that which he accuses us of. The disinterestedness and high moral sense towhioh La Patrie lays claim on behalf of its country men and the correctness of the statements which it has put forth in the article to which we allude, may be judged of from a brief re^ iew of the real facts of the case. The truth is that the propositions for annexation, which La Fatrte turns to such good account, emanated solely and entirely from tbe then President Baez, who, it is well known, was under the direct influence of France. It was the slavish devotion that he displayed on all occasions to the interests of that country, that mainly led to his expulsion from the island. So much for the assertion that these propositions were thi free and spontaneous expression of the popular will. But the candor and fairness of our French con temporary are shown to still greater advantage 1 by the fact, of which he must be made aw irej that ex-President Baez wa& reported to be on board the vessel of the French commaudant who made the demands that formed tbe leading fear tures of the information we published, with a view to profit by any disturbances to which they might give rise. We think that this simple statement will be sufficient to neutralize ihe conclusions to which our contemporary's article would seem to lead. Patent Extensions. ? Iu auother column will be found a letter from Mr. Dickcrson, counsel of Mr. Colt, in reply to the letter published some days since from Horace H. Day. These gentle men are both, we believe, lobby agents ; and we cannot object to their stating what they think of each other, in the way which seems best to themselves. We are entirely indifferent to the merits of the controversy in whicb they have engaged ? as much bo as we are to the abstract question of right involved in Mr. Colt's case. Our position is simply this: We object to speoial legislation for the benefit of private individuals, in cases where the law has provided a simple, equitable and reasonable remedy. It is natural that patentees should desire an eternal perpetuation of their monopoly. Avarice grows with wealth ; and if Mr. Colt had enjoyed his patent rights for thirty years, and was worth millions, we have no doubt that he would still do his best to beg for seven years longer. Congress is not a fit body to decide on similar applications. Impudent agents and cor rupt influences will effect ends in that body which modest merit could never attain. Say what the lobby agents will, the proper person to decide on the merits of an application for the renewal of a patent is the Commissioner. When he has refused to grant the application, an appeal to Congress bears fraud upon its face, and holds out about as much prospect of equal justice be tween the inventor and the country as an ap peal from a judgment of the Supreme Court to an assembled mob. We shall not lose Bight of the patent extensions. Tolice and Dirtv Strkits.? We perceive that the police have recently arrested all the street sweepers. The only reason for this strange conduct on the part of the police seems to be that they have an intrinsic love for the dirt of the city, and do not desire that it should be disturbed. During tbe past few days Ilroad way liaal>ecn in such a state that no respecta ble person could cross it without being soiled from hi ad to foot; but it seems that this mud is a source of delight to the Street Commis sioner. the police, and other authorities. They consider clean streets a species of barbarism, and do all they can to prevent the exhibition of web phenomena in our city. Tuk Italian Opera? Hacuctt vb. Niblo. Mr. Uackett has recently informed us that he has a Fp? cial contract with Grisi and Mario, by which thty are bound to come out here next summer. As i\!r. liuckett is given to joking, this may or niaj not be a fact; but it seems very likely at present that Mr. Ilackett will .get the lease of the new Opera House, by reason of his real or supposed contract with Grisi and Mario, and also l)ecause it is impossible that any European manager would take it. It is stated that the proprietors intend to put the rent of the Opera House in Irving place, with its saloons and connections, up to fifty thousand dollars per annum; and it will be a long time before they get a customer at that price.

To be sure, Grisi is past>?\ but Mario is in the prime of life ? he is a splendid artist, and will be a great favorite with the ladies. But all these things are in the future. In the meantime, Niblo is working industri ously at the improvements of his theatre, and he intends to make it the most commodious] as well as the most beautiful place of amusement in the city. e have not learned his plans, but we have no doubt that he will open early in the spring with a first rate company. Feeding toe Enemy. ? We perceive that the new Collector, Mr. Redfleld. has bestowed the best and most valuable of his patronage in the waj of advertising on the principal auti-slavery organ of William H. Seward. This we pre sume is by way of showing his sense of the notable service rendered him by Mr. Seward in securing his continuation by the Senate. Since that vote, most of Mr. Redfield's appointments in the Custom House here have been distributed among the most thorough free Boilers. What a singular spectacle it is to see an administration professing to support the principle of the com promise. and to desire the repeal of the laws of 1820, and a sound return to^onstitutioaal prin ciples, bestowing its aid and assistance on Wil liam H. Seward, and his anti-slavery organs and assistants here ! The famous free soil letter, which is now in the possession of John Cochrane and John Van Buren, and was brought to light by us. fully accounts for the policy and appoint ments of General Pierce's administration in this State; can it be that the appointments in our Custom House were due to the existence of a similar letter in the possession of the Senator from New York? Will the Nebraska Bill Pass both Houses. I his important question is now beginning to engross general attention throughout the coun try. We see but one danger for the bill, and that lies in the treachery of the administration, and the faithlessness of the men who compose the present Cabinet. The fact of Gen. Pierce b free soil antecedents, of Mr. Marc j b tendeucies, and of the notorious anti-slavery character of the bulk of the supporters of the administration, ought to inculcate caution. The men who knowingly committed a fraud on the Baltimore convention and the American people by palm ing off a free soiler as a devoted friend to the Union, do not deserve to be tru ted now. The Natiokal Whigs and the Nebraska Question.?' The Seward whigs have defined their position promptly on the Nebraska ques tion. Now, sli&ll we not hear from ttie natioual Fillmore-Webster-and-Everett silver grays ? The question is 6imply between Judge Douglas and Fred. Douglass? the white and the black. What color are the silver grays? It is the test question. Where are the national whigs ? Let the gas be lighted in the Broadway House., Let the cotton whigs come up to the work. P?ss round the call. Nebraska and the Two Democratic Socie ties. Neither Tammany Hall nor Stuyvesant Institute, neither the hard shells nor the su.1t shells, have yet shown their hands on the Ne braska question. Are the boasting national bard shells afraid to risk it ? Cannot the elas tic soft shells be stretched any further than the Missouri line? No time to be lost. Let us hear, without further delay, from Tammany Hall aud Stuyvesant Institute. Toe the mark. John Van Buren Wanted? Captain Ryuders, one ol the soft shell leaders of Tammany Hall, has immortalized himself on the Nebraska question. But where is bis associate goft shell leader? Where is John Van Buren? Where is the Prince? Will the Cabinet organ at Wash ington aid ub in bringing out John Van Buren ? Where is Captain Scott? The Post Office Advertising ? We learn that the Postmaster General at Washington haR directed our Postmaster, Mr. Fowler to issue new circulars for the reception of pro posals for the printing of the list of unclaimed letters. Under the new order the city circula tion of each paper must be correctly stated. So we will have the truth at last. Th* iiolxxa at 9t Thomas ?Tbe eohr. Fl*h, Cap! Me.
