The General Cauipalgn-Th? Pr#?peet? How to End the War. now goes the war? What is the present situation of our armies, East and West? and what ia the prospect? We ara admonished bj the financial difficulties of Mr. Secretary Fes senden, the disordered condition of the money market and the increasing uncertainties in all our business affairs that unless we achieve some decisive military victories over tho re bellion during the present campaign we shall need the exercise of wisdom, prudence and patriotism In the highest degroe to escape the shock of a financial revulsion and a poli tical revolution which may sweep away all tho remaining landmarks and signal stations of fitbe Union ns it was and tbe constitution as it is." What is tho prospect? With a capable, harmonious and energetic administration we should say that the pros pect is cheering ? that the speedy demolition of tbe two enfeebled armies upon which the for tunes of Joff. Davis and his confederacy now depend may be considered inevitable; that the Treasury has passed its severest ordeal, and that brighter days and l etter times will soon dawn upon us with tbo crowning triumph of the Union. We are assured that, though the grand army immediately under the eye of Gen. Grant is apparently inactive, its zealous and untiring leader is steadily working out his great designs, and that tbe fruits of bis labors are already ripening; that, having relieved the administration of the danger of a rebel raid into tbe natioual capital, he will lose no time in resuming active operations against Peters burg and Richmoud. The communications of Lee with Georgia are as essential to bis safety as his triple lines of intrenebments; and, to maintain those communications or recover them, he must, when tbe alternative is present ad, come out and give battle or abandon Rich mond to save his army, lie will be compelled to assail the intrenchments which threaten his complete isolation from tho South, instead of awaiting an assault or the tedious approaches of a regular fiege. The single thread of tho Danville railroad is now the only military line of connection left between Richmond aud the States below. This will be shortly cat off, and then we may look for tho solution ot the cam paign in Virginia. T be lately gathered wheat harvest in that State will doubtless enablo General Loo to draw supplies for a mouth or tv.'^ from Lvnch burg aud tbe Shenandoah valley, though not, perhaps, beyond u month or two, in conse quence of the recent destructive Union raids over all tbc> country between Lynchburg und Staunton, and thence dawn the Shenandoah valley to the Potom.ic. But, with General Sherman's army at Atlanta, the question of an open railroad or two to Georgia becomes one of ere iter moment to General Lee than the imtn l'ale subsistence of his troops. lie mu.-t soou reopen his communica tions southward by another movement u;o:i Washington, or by an effort to break through ti e i.nes of General Grant, or he w.ll be too lntc. The close reconnoissance of Washington m.;de by Eirly nnd Br- ckiuridge has disclose 1 n tempting prize to a larger movement in t o same direction. By the lai roads to Fredericks burg and Culpe;.per Court II us-, and tlience by forced march >?, ?<y way of tt*> Potomac for.l DOiir L "sburg. tue whole o! Liv's army proper might p<-*sibly oven now be moved to the r.vr t.l Washington in time to cany the cuy before General Grant could send up a body of i i-5 veteran snfli ; eat to r<'l:ev- it. llcre, then, at Waah ntft >n, us from tii? be (Tumibg of tbe war, i? the weak point in our military situation; and this w','ukueuJi of" tl.e national capital lies ia this weakness of tl.e Cabinet, aud in tbe loo e and disjointed mill tury system, or want of system, there ? xi>>t ng. lluw mauy departments and how trany con flicting or Independent ffeacra's wu have between Washington and Baltimore, and thence to the Shenandoah valley, we cannot tell. What we want we have already indicated; what course Mr. L.n coln will pursue remains to be seen. It has been demonstrated that if Genural (iraut i* still to be charged with the double duty of attending to R cbmoud and expelling rebel raiders from the back door of Washington at tbe same time, he will got on slowly. We have pointed out the soldier in whose namo a power ful army of volunteers, including a host ol veterans, could be promptly raised for tho Washington Department, and we have indi cated the immense advantages that would thus be securcd in view of tbe salety of Washington, tbe capture of Richmond, and the glorious ter mination to the war. Why this effective and simple plan of opera tions should be disregarded we cannot com prehend. If Mr. Lincoln has anything better | in contemplation we hope that it will soon be made apparent, not through Horace Gree ley or Edmund Kiike, as peace makers, but in gn at evenU. A glance over tbo whole Held of the war, we believe, will sat sfy tbe Intelligent reader that if tl>e administration, without drswing upon General Grant, wnl properly take caro of tbe b?i;k door or \\ ald ington to the end of August tl-rre will bo no nece-sity for an exhausting dra't in September. j Tnr. Lotal Mkn in Floiuiu.? A memorial to President Lincoln, signed by many of the most prominent loyal citizens of Florida, has just been presented to him. The memorialists acknowledge tho kindly In terest manifested by the President in the facilities rendered in organizing tbe State government, but express their regret that th? party who associated himself with L'leoln's re presentative (Major Hay) a? Vue chief conser vator of the Interests of the State "does not command the confidence of the people of Flo rida." This Is throwing cold water upon all the political negotiations ot Lincoln in Florida, ' and is likely to be so considered by all the pes tilent wbels in that State, with Billy Bowleg* yicuMfan M fc*"1* Th? \V?i U Uurvpc?4t? UualM. The King of Denmark, finding all bop* of ftseietence from England rain, has made propositions of peace to the German Powers, and, as we are informed from London on the 13th July? the latest date? hostilities have ceased, pending the negotiation of a settlement of the war. The new ministry which has been called to office in Copenhagen is emphatically ? peace ministry, and the written accounts from the Danish capital assert that peace is now re-echoed from every street corner where ft few months sinco the popular political cry was war with the Germans to the last ex tremity. Very conflicting rumors were afloat as to the terms proposed as the basis for the peace conference. It was even said that the first overtures towards such a result came from Prussia. Be this as it may, it is quite evident that the crowu of Denmark was brought to a very dangerous position, and that its sovereign saw little else than difficulty around him, no ' matter on which side he turned his face, before he entertained the idea of being reconciled to bis bullying and unscrupulous neighbors. In such strait it Is alleged that be proposed to tlio Prussian government that Denmark shonld become ft member of the Germanic Con federation, and thus retain the disputed pro vinces and avoid future strife. It is not known as yet what course may be pursued by the Germans; but, as ft suspension of hostilities has taken place, it seems evident that the proposal of Denmark is being considered. Should it bo accepted Germany will become vastly more powerful. She would then control the Baltic, and, acting in unity, would exert a great influ ence throughout Europe. England will, it is probable, see a menace in this, and will endeavor to thwart such an alliance; but Denmark, warned by her previous course, will repose no further confidence in the promises or protestations of England; and here again the influence of " Ferfidt Albion" will be lessened. Another statement is to the effect that the Danish monarch was willing, in bis royal em barrassment, to accept the plan of a Scandi navian republic, and to immediately proceed to organize such a form of government in con cert with Norway and Sweden. We ftre informed by the Marathon (at this port yesterday) that both these plans of the King would be thwarted by the diplomacy of his powerful imperial friends (?) France and Rus sia, Napoleon objecting in the most positive terms to the entry of Denmark into the German Confederation, while the C/ar Alexander was equally stubborn against the plan of a Scan dinavian republic, presuming perhups that such a step would bo a rather violent and dangerous descent on the status of a king by '-D vine right" Each of the two great Powers declare that if the King of Denmark shall adopt a policy contrary to its own tbe Cabinet of tbe Tuil cries or the Cabinet of St. Petersburg will "move towards war," as the case may be. In such a dire emergency ? deserted by England and ham pered, perhaps controlled, by France and Ru.-sia ? it is very probable tbat King Christian will, instea l of making a tender of terms of peace, be forced to accept such nn offer ns tho German Powers may propose to him. Indeed it is rumored tbat such an offer has ? been already made, and the reported terms are of a most immoderate character even i'or Ger ro.'.n Ftatesmen, being nothing loss than that Denmark shall pay ten millions of pounds ster ling to cover the expeuses of tbe war. sur render all claim to rule in Schlestvig or llol stciu, and hrsnd over Ler entire lL>et to the viet rs. Ibis report was not fully cicdi'ed in London; but the very prevalence of the rumor in tbe English capital proves the distress of the Danish monarch and tbe levity with which political speculators treat the fortunes of a weakened, | orhaps tailing, crown. Should Denmark, notwithstanding tbo oppo sition of France, become a member of tho Confederation th^pdcspotii of Prussia and Aus tria will have gamed a victory and a renewed leuse ot powor. This, however, cannot la. t lon<*. T'jeir people have imb.bed revolution ary sentiments which canuot be restrained, ml we must expect to see #u outbreak in the Old World which will reform it alto gether. The worn out and effofce monarchic* inu.'t. give w;n , m-d constitutional government* take their place. In vain do tho bankrupt emperors anl k:n?S of Eui ope ftiive 1?> ward off the cri.jis. A s belore tbe grout French Revo lution, a feeling of cue asi reus prevails throughout tbe Old World.

The English government has alun cause for fears vl* to iU safety.

In this we tee tbo most Import ant result of the D?ni?b wnp, The Nugaiu Fkao> Cospkrk.ncb ? Cot/>*ADO Jewett's Stout.? We publish this morning another batch of correspondence relative to tbe late peace finsoo at Niagara Falls. The developments contained theroin are rich and racy. It would be difficult to find in the hie tory of diplomatic muddles an expose more ludicrous and undignified. Colorado Jewett, It will be seen, was the chief manager In this feroe.M* bo BuawiU <*??? till* o# that distinguish personage as the moat artful and original <f?iploinat of the day. We know not whether most to admire Jewett% adroitness or Jewett's brass. lie whirls Phi losopher Greelej arouud his thumb, draws the wool over Old Abe's eyes, rings out a dashing despatch to the Emperor Napoleon, and plays a general game of thimble rig with the rebel emissaries and their half starred attaches. The correspondence is curious, and will add another interesting chapter to the many queer and marvellous incidents of the rebellion. Head the correspondence. A Word of A4t1c? to Theatrical Mana gers. ? We notice that meetings of the theatrical managers of this city hare been held recently to determine in what way they shall raise the prices of admission to their theatres. Some are in favor of adding more reserved 6eata. Others beliove in asking more money at the door. The negro minstrel'men have very unwisely adopt ed the latter policy, and will charge thirty-five cents, 'instead of twenty-Are cents, the next season. Now, we tell the managers candidly and plainly that we see no reason why they should raise their prices at all. For the past two years they have been making plenty of money. One manager haa retired on a fortune. An other has paid for his theatre in full. Another has been able to take a foreign tour. A fourth is preparing to "do" Europe in grand style. If, during a period of war, the managers have flourished so well, let them beware how they attempt to double their riches too suddenly. There is 6uoh a thing as killing the gooso that lays the golden egg. Tho public have very kindly filled tbo managers" pockets; but if the macagers try to fleece tie public too grossly they may be served as the stage companies were when they undertook a similar experi ment. But there is still another view of the case. The public now pay quite enough for such per formances as our managers give them. There is hardly a manager in New York who cares a snap of his fiDger about art or the interests of art. They have transformed their theatres into mere money making machines. They have de graded the stage almost to the level of the con cert snloons. For such shows as they offer fifty cents is a remarkably high price. The public go, because they have nowhere else to go and nothing better to see; but let the man agers raise their prices, and the public will soon stay away or find some other sart of en tertainment upon which to spend money. In times like these tho people ought to be amused and must bo amused, and the price of admis sion to om theatres ought to bo lowered instead of being raised. The best kind of military dramas ought to be played by the bast actors, in order to keep up the martial spirit. This Is the way they do In France; but here we have not had a single military play at any of our leading theatres during tho war, aud old comedie3 nud new trash hare been foisted upon us ad nauseam. Evidently tho managers do not know tteir business, nnd evidently tbey will icso tbo ttittle hold tbey have on the public us soon aa they raiso tha prices of their poor performances. With the Opera, on tho other hard, increased pricae will be a neceesity. In France the ope ratic managers are assisted by a subsidy from the government, and iu England tb?-y have lureo subscriptions from the fashionable world, lu this country we have no subsidy and practi cally no subscriptions, and yet oar oper?tic managers huve to compete witii iiiose of Eu rope for singers. Wo demand firal cla?s art'sta hi re, and the operatic managers bare to import the-H und pay them iu fold. Coofequently no me aid is Lecessary in ordor to- enable the operate conductors to crtrry their next season through, and that aid mi? :t oomo in the shape of higher prices. To this there ean bo do rea sonable objection, and we trust that our fash ionables will respond liberally r? any udvance. But with the theatres it Is quite another thing. The managers import no artists. Tbey pay nobody in gold. They havo not even raised the salaries of their actors, though they cr*n richly afford to do so at the present prices of ad mission. They had to bt; fairly forced into pay ing liv.r.g wages tu the musicians in the orches tic. They ne^ or sacrifice themselves to their art, as operatic managers have (lone again and aj;:i n. Yet we new tind t: ?*; i crying out, !or more money. Let .is give them one word of adv.ee: pay the aoura better salaries; increase the number of rusei ved awiis, for which there ia a ^reat dcmimd; l?t fiO admission prices remain as at prcnunt; be contmt with smnller galas, and do rot he content with the inferior style in which plays are aow presented. If our advice bo not taken wc shall advise the public to with draw from t>* tlMHilres, as we advised them not *> ride iu the high priced omnibuses, and the man age us will have to accept the conse quMtccs. Rki.ics ta Ovk Lost PrsrATCii ics.- When the rebel raider Harry Gil mor stopped the Phila delphia tra ns during the recent raid, it will be remembered that oue of our war corres pondents was on board, with despatches, and was unceremoniously relieved of the same by tbo raiders. Harry Gilmor appears to be a polito high way m i 1 of the Paul Clifford school; for he left? not tte despatches? but the envoi o| cs, torn Into fragment.', at Magnolia, which are now bofo^e us, with the notification, writ ten ii pencil, tbat tbey ww? left, for us with "Marry Gimor's respects." We return the com pliment. We hope the contents gave comfort to the rebel chie' uin. KoUunately they worn no serious to** to us; for our correspondent fur nlshod from numor? nenvly oU the material the dscpatnhes contained, cf which our readers havo had tho t enrflt 'outf ? no?.

According to Miis statement Gilmore, all-is Ki i e, trih tho princi pal mar., .L q?>? 5 fculng along ? imply us his "friend..' This, however, i1- of in.

This Is a very Important d?clnr;?Uon, and. being peifectly cor.i-istent with all tho previous declarations of Pavis on the peace question, w? can have no doubt that he uttered Ihe opinion here reported. It Is very likely, too, that this report from Richmond had ovfeb to do with 014 At*'a rtvMoa of hk fl;?t kptoMUQM Greeley, M special peaoe commissioner at Niagara Falls. At all events, we know now the ultimata of both Abraham Linooln and Jeff. Davis, and here they are:? vxnmrvu or jbiubam uifoour.

Ko poses short of .? recogulzod Southern confederacy , or Southern extermination. Greeley, Banders, Colorado Jewett and Com pany must, therefore, stand back and await the results of the more impressive negotiations of Grant and Sherman. Let the administration provide for the safety of Washington, and even Jeff. Davis will soon be ^convinced that his Sonfhern confederacy is "played oat," and then we shall have peaoe, regardless of Old Abe's ultimatum ? the abolition of slavery by the rebellious States as a condition precedent th their restoration to the Union. Old Abe and Old Jeff, are both wrong. The Reukl Agents in London. ? The agents of the rebel government in London are de scribed as being in a most deplorable and poverty stricken condition. They are not only out of hope and spirits, but out at elbows. They not only find their mission a mockery, but their pocketbooks also, and they are hang ing around the British metropolis without money and without the chance of getting any, e?en in the shape of boDds in the rebel loan, from their employers at Richmond. Their clothes are seedy, and their faccs like unto that of the "Knight of the rueful countenance." There is poor George Taylor, lato Congress man from Brooklyn, looking more gaunt and hungry than ever for want of "his pay." And Iliram Fuller, the dandy of Broadway and the pet of Newport, buttoning up his coat in Dick Swiveller fashion, to hide his soiled shirt. And FranciB Corbyn, one of the F. F. V.'s, with threadbare coat and the tops worn out of his glove fingers. Poor fellows. They remind us of the French refugees who used to hang around the Hotel Sabloniere, In Leicester square, some years ago, waiting for some chance friend to drop in and give them a din ner. Now that the agents of Davis have learned that tho way of tho transgressor is harder than hard tack, of which they have not even a bite, the best thing they can do is to repent their sins, come home, take the oath of allegiance, and wo may give them a few of the driblet, 8 about the City Hall or the Street Department. Any "honest" employment would be better than their traitorous and profitless occupation in London, whioh does not affurd tbcm a meal a day or a clean shirt onco a week. Pitting Down Rebellion ? Enqland's Ef i'orts in Nkw Zealand. ? England has just met with another severe disaster in New Zealand. The wild and untrained Maories in those islands have just inflicted a bloody defeat upon the British troops. The Maories carry on this war under tho a?s?imption that it is for freedom. England carries it on under the assumption that the Ideorics are rebels. But England, with all her power, cannot put down this beggarly little rebellion. That war has lasted now longer than our* has. Is it any wonder, then, that England believes that we cannot put down the rebellion at the South? Sho mea sures what wo p-obably cannot do by wfcat she knows she oanuot do. England, the Eng lish papers argue, la a great military Power; the United States is not.; and England, n great military Power, cannot put down a rebellion in New Zealand, though the whole population of those island* is- only l.r>0,000; how then can the United State3, not a gre.it military Power, put down a rebellion that includes a population of 12,000,0^0, and that was lately supported by half a luillioa soldiers* If we accept the English position, the con clusion that w? cannot put down the rebellion is of ciMirse inevitable. But there are two or thrco litila fallacies In that position. The worst of thenj is the fallacy that the capacity of American* is to bo measured by tbo capa city of Englishmen. That is a lallajy that every American has n ri>?ht to be indignant at, aud to resent as another English insult An Uniucasant Artistic BfesoascBKOE. ?

Wo should thJ .k that this is atout the least de sir ;blo historical record of iiis administration which o)ld Abe would like to see transmitted to posterity. Hut there it is, limned ou the canvuw in imperishable colors. Axvsis'a ? To see tbe London Tunts charg ing iSapoleon with want of courage in not re conciling the Southern confederacy; to seo the governments ot England and France twitting each other about not acknowledging a Power to which they have both given all tLe assistance and sympathy they eould. If England goes ahead we will follow, says Franco. Why has not Franco the pluck to lead, says England. Safely of the Captain mn?t It imsludcr of the Crew of the Steamer ilsrs. Boston, July 21, 1864.
