A despatch from Stnttgarrt announces tbo reception
to-day of a deputation rrom the American Evangelical
Alliance by Prtnco GortchaKoir, who is now
sojourning In that city.
The address from the Alliance to tho Czar was
presented and favorably reoeived. It contains tho
following:?
To His Imperial Maiksty Alexander 11., Kmpkkor
ok Ali. the Hussias:?
The undcrsignod, citizens ol tho United States of
America ami delegates of the Atucricun branch of
the Evangelical Alliance, which Is an organization
composed of l'rotcstant Christians of different denominations
ami countries, Leg leave most respectfully
to explain the circumstances which havo
prompted this appeal to Your Imperial Majesty.
By increased facilities of intercommunication tho
unity of the human family becomes more and more
a practical reality. National acts of justice and
philanthropy exert a direct influence beyond the
boundaries of the countries in winch tlicy originate.
The benevolent decrees of Your Imperial Majesty In
reference to tho serfs commanded the ndmirailon
or all tlio mentis or Humanity in our own isnu ami
throughout the world, and had a favorable clfcct
upon our own government tit bringing about shortly
alterwardu the emancipation of four millions of
slaves.
Confluence in the well known benevolence of
Your Imperial Majesty emboldens us to express tho
profound sympathy felt by multitudes In our own
country with a large number ot Your Imperial
Majesty's subjects in tho nalttc provinces, whoso
condition is so emphatically described in the roport
made to Your Imperial Majesty by Count liobrlnskl
in April, ism, and who by existing laws are
prevented front openly returning to tlio
fait It of their Lutheran ancestors, as Americans we
venture to reter to tho results of our own national
experience as illustrating the effects of religious liberty
on the welfare or individuals and the stability
of governments, by religious liberty we no not intend
treedom rrom all authority, much less that ail
opinions are equally good, but almplv the right of
every individual to believe anu worship according to
his own free cousc ence, responsible only to tho an
tnority or (lod, as revealed in Ills Iloly Word.
In the Tinted States all religions denominations
and forum of worship are equal before the law,
which, supporting none, protects nil, and never interferes
wttn their internal affairs The orthodox
tlreek Clutrch, though with us the smallest as to
nnmbers, enjoys In every respect Hie same liberty as
the largest denomination, if may Tmita diuretics,
propiiifate its opluions and extend its influence as
freely In the United Stales as in the empire of Russia.
This religious freedom we have roun 1 nor only
a relief to the State fro n agitations and cares, hut
the surest pledge of social older and national unity,
I)}' promoting mutual respect and charily among the
different denominations, and by Imparting a sense
of security to all in the common enjoyment of their
most sacred rights.
In view or these considerations we respectfully
unite our request with that of our brethren in
Kuropeln behalf of Your Imperial Majesty's subjects
in the battle provinces, that tiicy may be permitted
to worship Oo 1 and to educate tltelr children according
to the luttli of their fathers, and lice preference
of tneir own consciences.
Ktdl further, in behalf of American missionaries,
distinguished by intelligence, piccv and scholarship,
who have labored long ami successfully ainoag
Armenian", Ncstorlans and other christians under
Mahometan rule lu Turkey, and od the borders of
the Russian dominions, we beg leave to ask (hat
Your Imperial Majesty's Christian government may
be Induced to giant, within the limits of Its juris notion,
among all subjects not belonging ;o the orthodox
Greek Church, liberty ot worship and religious
institutions, including circulation of the
lloly Scriptures.
in support ot the memorial which we now earnestly
nud respectfully present we appeal to the genius or
Christianity, which, being spiritual in Its naturo,
requires mora! influence and motives; to the sacred
lights ol? conscience, which demand an outward
expression in freedom of public worship; to the
spirit of modern civilization, whic h lavors religious
liberty ana seems to anticipate Its universal prevalence,
ami to the precepts of Jesus Christ, whose
kingdom is not oi this world, and who Is "the Head
over all things to the Church."
In the sincere hope that Your Imperial Majesty
1 may have the high satisfaction ot adding another to
those great acts of benevolence which nave Inspired
the gratitude of mankind, and devoutly Invoking
upon Your Imperial Majesty and upon all Russia the
blessing of Almighty Rod, by whom kings reign and
princes decree justice, we subscribe ourselves, with
profound respect, Your Imperial Majesty's obedient
servants,

The gunboats Monocacy and Palos, with
four steam launches, well equippod with marinos
and artillery, started up the river to
reconnoitre the enemy's preparations for defence
early in Juno. They had proceeded
about ton miles from the mouth of the river
when they were fired upon by two Corean
forts.
Tho fire wounded two of our men, whoso
names I havo not beon able to ascertain.
A broadside was immediately returned
from all the vessels on the reconnoissance,
and a sharp interchange of compliments ensued.
A note, signed by the chief counsellor of the
King, was sent to our boats by a single mes
senger durlug the fil ing, in which it was stated
that the Coreans refused to hold any intercourse
whatever with foreign nations, and
that the crow of the American ship General
Sherman were put to death under the laws of
the land because they were guilty of piracy
and murder after they had been shipwrecked.
Our vessels returned to their anchorage
after receiving this l.tter and taking as c*ear

The following discussion took place In the National

of arius by M. Victor Place, lately French
Consul at New York
The Duke D'Audipkrrt Pasquiru--On the 4ih
March last the Assembly appointed a committee of
sixty mouthers to Inquire into all the contracts
made bv the government on theoecaaton or the war.
We have thought advisable not to wait until the termination
ot our mission to give an account of it to

To your lourth question?relation to the propriety
or the enforcement ot law - I reply: No law on the
statute book affecting the uenerai welfare of the
peop e, In my judgment, should be permitted to remain
unexecuted. Law is a rule ot action;
and unexecuted law is a rulo of action
for nobouv, and its place upon the
stafnte book is a blot upon the tlode. It is the sworn-dutv
oi the Chler Executive to allow neither officials,
corporations, nor any body ol nu-u whatever, to act
rhoir pleasure lit obedience "r disot edicace to law.
General Grant never gave expression to a wiser s ty
