Id another column we give tn order from General Canbv, publishing for information an extract from a letter to the rebel Secretary of War, written by Henry W. Allen, who claims, in the interest of the rebellion, to be the Gov ernor of Louisiana. In this letter the rebel dignitary uses very distinct language in rela tion to putting negro troops in the reboi army. Ho declares that "tbe time has come" for tbe adoption and enforcement of that measure. He would put into the rebel army "every able bodied negro man." ne would put negroes there, not as laborers or teamsters, but "as soldiers.1' And be would put them th'ere im mediately. His reasons for this are good. One of them is that the negro is the cause of tbe war. and ought to bear part of the burdca of it: and another is that be is convinced, "by dear bought experience, that negroes can be taogbt to fight." His third reason is that men , i aonrce, and that all tbe white men are killed or have run away, and that tbe negro 1 will bo better than no men at all to "swell tbe ' now depleted ranks" of the rebel army. We guve a few days ago an extract from a , Richmond paper urging tb? rebel government to put a quarter of a million of negroes in the rebel army, and we now have the same em ployment of negro soldiers urged from tbe other extremity of the rebellious States. It is apparent, therefore, that the subject has taken a firm hold of tbe minds of tbe rebel leaders, and is extensively agitated by person* of high position in tbe rebel councils. This mat ter bos only made its way into those councils by the desperate pressure of great necessity. These rebel leaders see that, more men are necesoaiy, and that unless they immediately bare more men tbe rebel cause is gooe. I Tbey see, olio, that th'-y bare no longer say white men, and so tbey fall. M their lost and only -resource, upon tbe Diggers. Rut Mr. Allen also declares that tbe nigger is tbe cause of the war. Thus we see this high strung confederacy?this last home of chivalry on earth ?this government of men i too good for association with ordinary mor tals-disposed to employ as its soldiers, as tbe champions ?f it* cause, that despised j race which it has trampled under ^ot. It acknowledges that it fights for the psrpetu- I ation of slavery, and tbat it has uo one left to flght its battles hat those very slave* whose freedom It flghts against. It remains to be seen whether tbe rebel government will put ntfgroee into Its armies; and when ft does, It wifl then remain to bo seen whether negroes wbo can be taught to If bt will not else want to taught wlmt tbey ?re te debt few, i r?(r?lta M k Ragt. Ve life in ? gay mod flashing era. The Americans are a lire and progressive peo ple. Whatever they touch tells They make discoveries la the Arctic Ooean, where they hunt after lost Englishmen and jfkck up and educate the rude Esquimaux. They divest the eoeaa of its treasures. They invent impenetrable locks, reaping maohinee, sewing machines, telegraphic and photographic machines, steam engines and caloric engines? and, in short, they invent .aything that can be of eervioe to mankind. When out of any other material for excitement they get up and run at tremendous cost a gigantic rebellion. This is a bloody pieoe of work, and is not one of their own inventions. Satan first bogan the busi ness in the purple rentes* of heaven. A weak and undeveloped nation, they carried on two gfeat wars with the then greatest Power on earth. ? They have subdued hordes of hostile savages, redeemed millions of aopes of soil, and made the desert blossom as the rose. They wrenched gold from the rocks of California, where it had been hidden for ages. The)' spread open the rich placers of the same region, and with tin pans of Yankee invention produced that "dust" which some people find so difficult to lay down. They had once a diet of worms which set them almost crazy?the morus muUicaxdis fever came near being the death of many of thera. The rsge for rail road Btock gambling seized them fqr a while. But tbey survived that. A specu lative distemper peculiar to the American disposition and character possesses them almost at all times. Now I'otiplia i? the rage.- Iu the ab sence of a regular board for the sale ot stocks, parties struck with the petroleum fever strike for the petroleum stock brokers. Hence Kingsland is sought for the stock of all the dividend paying oil companies, and for a new idea christened the "Astor Burn ing Spring Petroleum Land Association:" for the "Noble Well" Company, with its dividend of two per cent per month, or $120,OOP per annum: for the "Maple Shade, with its three per cent per month, or $180,000 per an num: lor the Knickerbocker," with its one per cent per mouth, or $120,000 per year; for the "United States." with its one per oent per month, or $00,000 per annum; for the "Con solidated,'' with its one and a half per cent per month, df $154,000 per year; for the "Snc Qess," with its two and a rpiarter per cent per month, or $.'10,000 per annum ou $100,000 capital; for the "Manhattan," located on the Blood and Story aud part of the Rynd farms, with its magnificent dividend of four per cent per month, or $240,000 per anuuui on a capital ot only $")0n,000: for the "Buchanan Farm Oil Com pany," with its one per cent per month, or SIMO.OOO per annum on its capital stock of $1,000,000: lor the "liyud Farm Oil Com pany." a new one, with brilliant prospects; lor the "Columbia.' of Pittsburg, with its dividend of four per cent per month?the lowest for the last year, the highest having been ten per "cent per month?in the aggregate $1,200,000 per annum; for the "Noble and I)e la Mater," with its dividend of ten per cent par month for sis months, or $600,000 per annum?$100,000 above its capital. Kiogdand advances the dividends on all dividend paying oil stocks. Then pass to Fred. W. Clarke's exchange. Here the seeker after oleaginous wealth finds the "Central Petroleum Company," with its dividend of one per cent per month, or $600,000 per year: the "Blood Farm Petroleum Company." paying $70,000 per annum; the "Home" Company, whose re- | ceipts go into the development of other com- | panics; the "American Petroleum Company," on the celebrated Tarr farm?the oldest in ex istence?paying one per cent per month, or $50,000 per annum; the "Tarr Farm Petroleum Company," with its dividend of one per cent per month, or $30,000 per annum; the "United Petroleum Farms Association," just formed, with $15,000,000 capital?$2,000,000 already subscribed?proposed to be made into three companies. This property includes the well known Rood well. Then the wealth seeker goes to L. 1L Simpson A Company, where he finds the "President Oil Compauy," with its $5,000,000 capital, and only one dollar sub scription? $800,000 are subscribed, and live bank presidents are among the subscribers. Then be may go to Albert H. Nicolay, and we do not know how many others, and take his choice. Thus i? Petrolia the present rage, and oar people see it and know it. You cannot find ten Petroliaus together in one place whore you do not find at least ten millions of oapitnl represented. VThy should not New \ ork be benefitted by this new rage? An Enuluh Secession Don uzvr.?A very extraordinary document, in the shape of an ap peal to the people of the United States from "the people" of Great Britain to make peace with the South and acknowledge its independ ence, ha* been recently seat to this country, and no doubt pretty extensively circulated. It was forwarded to Governor Seymour, with a private note signed by a certain Henry de Hogbton, Baronet; but copies of tbe paper, with other lithographed "private" notes, were also sent to the editors of several newspapers. Upon the spirit or 'style of this document we bavo no comment to make: but as its purport is evidently not understood either by the public or the other journals which hare remarked upon it, we will state'that we know positively, and have known for some time, that it was got up in London by the secession agents there, and that the names?which we are told number three hundred and fifty thousand?ware ob tained through the affiliation of these same agents, of whom Sir Henry de Hoghlon may be one for all we know. The object of -it Is to make capital for Jeffersoe Davis, and nothing else. We have seen for a long time that tbe rebel lion was giving way. The Indications of every day show more and more that its hours are numbered, end that not the moet desperate offorte ef its adherents can save it The week and illogical letter of Mr. Stephens, the admis sions forced Arom Jeff. Davis in his late speeches that the Southern cause was desperate ? admissions withheld aa long as peeeible, far Davie is not the man to "five ttp tbe ship"*while two planke hold together? ell prove that every hope Is lost Bat the atrengeet evidence of ail Is the determination to free their negroes and call them Into the fleld as soldiers. The rebel Goveraor of Louisiana tan already arged this measure. The war wav undertaken by the South to protect and perpetuate slavery. Whan they give firesdom te the slaves themselves, far what pnrpeee Is i the waif dmd now we have U tfcfr iilfUa document of traaaatlaatie birth another piece of testimony to show that a cause which baa to resort to such miserable stilts is indeed a mined one. Btrslatlosi In SouU America? Hew Xbtjr may fee FrtrtsMd. The latest news from South America informs us that the flames of civil war are on the ere of enoe mere breaking out among these interesting and industrious but ever unfortunate popple. New Granada has just emerged from a bloody conflict, and yet there are' numerous indications that she will not bo permitted to enjoy a protracted peaoe. Echador Is nominally at peace, but her central position between two revolution ary States may at any ?moment plunge her into the sanguinary difficulties of war. Vene zuela, whose history Is one oontiaual struggle, has enjoyed order and unity a very short time. But a few months ago we were told that the republic was,completely pacified and tbat all revolutions were at an end. Oiir Havana cor respondent now informs us, on positive data, that a new revolution has broken out in that country. In the meantime the war iu St. Domingo and Mexico is still drawing its slow length along, while serious troubles, if not actual war, are darkening the peaceful skies of Peru, Chile, Uruguay and the other small republics of the South. Now, while these small and independent communities are wasting their strength and energy on the consideration of useless local questions, the Powers of Europe have been and are Still seeking for opportunities to destroy their nationality. The intestine divi sions of the United States led. to the war in which the North and South are now engaged; and had it not been for our formidable strength Europe would long since have inter fered in our domestic quarrel. The nations of the Old World, however, dare not come between the wrath of such a nation as this. With the petty republics of South America they may and do interfere, becauee the greatest of ail republics,'which gives tone to all the governments of the world, is now engaged in a strife that admits of no other consideration. Yet the cause of the smaller republics is the cause of the United States. We look with regret upon the intestine divisions of the South Ame rican nationalities; for iu their differences European nations find their opportunity and strike at them accordingly. The duty of these republics is to consolidate their strength and to improve all their means of defence. While they must be always pro pared to do justice to European nations, they must bo as fully prepared to insist on justice for themselves. All divisions and prejudices mu3t be set aside when a common danger threatens the well-being of a common cause. For the present, neither Mexico nor Peru can expect any aid from the United Slates, which, proper,y speaking, is the "big brother"' of the American republics; but let each of them do their duty in as fur on their power will permit, aud when the rebellion is crushed, as it must soon be, the despots of Europe had better look out for hard knocks in recompense for the.r dastardly conduct to those weak nations of this continent which caunot cope with them in physical power, but whom it is a part of the duty of the Uuited States to assist and protect. A Thkkat Which Shoi i.d bk Rjcoarbkd is a Warning.?The Richmond Whig* in discuss ing the sweeping work of desolation don:1 by General Sheridan in the Shenuudoah valley, iu order to render it untenable to a rebel arjpy, suggests a scheme of retaliation of which we have had some intimations heretofore. This scheme is the appropriation by the rebel author ities of the sum of one million of ^liars for the hiring of a gang of trusty arid intelligent incendiaries "to burn one of the chief cities of the enemy." The 117. .'9 says "nothing would be easier;" that "the men to execute the work are already there;" that, for instance, "twenty men, with plans all preconcerted and meaus provided, selecting some dry. windy nigh', might lire Boston iu a hundred places." and that if the Yankees retaliate, "it is a gainc at which we can beat them. New York is worih twenty Richmonds.'' Finally, says the Whig, "if the executive is not ready for this, w,- com mend the matter to the secret, deliber ilio.is of the Congress gbout to meet." tfe urc assured that oirr gturdiaiu of law and order, civil and military, are on the watch; but they canno! be too vigilant hence forward to the ninth of November. We would also admonish our fellow citizens who have a substantial interest in the maintenance of" law and order not only in this city, but in all the other great cities of the loyal PtftWs to bo vigilant and active till after the Presidential election; and to bear in inind this timely warn ing from Richmond, that "twenty men. with plan* all preconcerted and means provided," could lay Boston. New York or Cincinnati in ach*s, and that "the men to execute the woik" are already on the ground. Tuk Civep.-yvti Phut Convkntiov?"Mo\ sikcp. Toyson Comk. Awaik.'*?A little cluster of implacable copperhead peace-mongers have been figuring away for a day or two in a Presi dential peace convention, in Mozart Hall, Cin cinnati. Among tbe shining lights thus assem bled in council we (iud Hon. Alexander Long, of Ohio; lion. J. W. singleton, of Illinois; the visionary W. M. Corry, of Ohio, lonnerly a revolution-making associate of George Sanders, and the inevitable and irrepressible Colorado Jewett. Singleton and Jcwett appear to be the master spirits of the concern. The objects of tboir convention is difficult to conjecture. If Lincoln or McCIellan will only accept tbeii peace platform they will take either Lincoln or McOiollan, if not both. But they are very bitter on McCIellan. The delegates say they were treated shabbily at Chicago, and scurvily by McCIellan, and so they art all required te pledge themselves against McCIellan. " They think hie dawdling in polRica is like his shilly shally military poiioy," and they "prefer the ?harp ?nd vigorous poiioy of tho administn tlon." But, for all tbat. they telk of Long f< President and Singleton for VicO President, 1 their ticket for peaco-at-aay-price. What th Monaionr Tonaon convention ia really drivin at wo ahall probably learn la a day or two i another peaoe manlfeato from Jewett to Qaee Victoria, Louis Napoleon or tbo Pop# 1 Th* Bmrtlv m Pbnrsvlvanu.?Wo havo ro oeived tbo official rate of over one-half of tha counties in Pennsylvania aad the reported majorities of tho halanoo, moot of which aro stated to bo oflolal, which removes all doubt ?a to tho rosalt of tho etoctloa on the 11th tact la that BUte. Tbo domoorate havo oarriod tho SUU ?? Ik* kgp* TtU kv *k**t CffitftHB Lnndred stkjurtty. Tha Tribune eoaesdos* to *ko democrat* seven hudrad and ft?j majority 80dm of the later returns from regiment* in the field, received at Harris burg, shew a decided democratic preponder ance, but not sufficient to counterbalance tiy? republican majorities heretofore reported from the soldiers. The republicans still claim sixteen Congress men. As a sample how they figure this agd how well founded their assertion is will be seen from the Twelfth Congressional district. They claim the election of Ketcham, republi can, when the official vote of the district shows that Charles Dennlson, democrat, has twelve hundred and forty-three majority in this dis trict. This certainly does not look very much as if they have elected as many as they claim. In two other districts, pat down in the Tribune as having elected republican Congress men, the democratic candidates have received a majority on the tome vote, and no statement of the soldiers' vote has yet been made show ing that their majorites have been overcome. If lying will give the republicans sixteen Con gressmen they may secure them, for they jiave done enough of that to entitle them to a unani mous republican delegation from the State.

Slavery lias existed more through the guar antees of the constitution than by any other means.

Now the rebels intend to free half a million' of slaves and make soldiers of them for the preservation of the institution! THE MISSOURI INVASION.
