WW thank the author for the very acceptable present of the first nuuilxr of " ltutter's Political Quarterly, de voted to unearthing the sanctimoni ous political rats of the South, exjios ing Kadkal ist-allawags and carpet baggers, biographical sketches of the reconstruction desrructionists; with pieasing pictures behind the scenes in the reconstruction conspiracy ; with a refreshing history of the Radiiail frauds ' and ' dead-beats ' in the South, and their connection with the Government tinkers at Washington." If the programme is fully carried out, this quarterly will have a brilliant run. Some of its delineations will be recognized hereabouts as quite graphic and just. Indeed, Rutter paints well, and is on the road to distinction. Take, for example, the following par agraphs relating to our late iameutod chief: This reverend scamp writing from Trenlon, June S a 1 mils that he re ceived money from Mutter, bat aaya the services were rendered purely out of sym pathy for hitu. odd sort of sympathy and "mercenary kindness that, which n iiireK co much cash to Inspire. If his ret nreiice experiences such Christian sym pathy I t Maw Ruttor, would it not bo a more con.V.ntout and C'hriHliau way of slewing ii by paying the aforesaid cash back? We know entire families of Radi cal philanthropists who are afflicted with the same Christian sympathy as his rev -oreiic: luit they never pay auvlhiiie. His rvcreuce, we reuiemhcr, came near confiscating for his own use the I'nion street Methodist I urojial chun-Ii, South, because it was not draped in mourning for thn death of l'resident Lincoln as promptly as he thought it should he; and the wriler, learning if his intentions, purchased the goods with which to drape the church, and hail it done in time to prevent his designs. And we are afraid that his reverence is too great a fool to ue- eome it nrst-ciass Knave. He is s 'aiii; enough to devise villainy of a high order Litit the poor v, retch has neither the sense r couri-.ge to execute. A rascal ought to iBSes some orains. ent temper of our people, be the part of wisdom; yet we by no means in icntl to deire-ate au uprising of the people of this country against the luture aggressions of the taction now domiaaat at Yuahingtoa. On the contrary it is our deliberate convic tiea than all frth?r aggressions and usurpations of Congress, should be checked, if it can be done in no other way, by the mighty voice of a popu lar revolution. We speak these words advisedly. They embody the doc trines for the vindication of which the founders of the American u pulic staked their fortunes and their lives, and it becomes the people in every State to cling to them now, despite the menaces of the faction which wields the purse and sword of the nation and controLs the corrupt currents flowine from what, a short time siuce, was our grunt fountain of justice. What is loyalty to-day is a barren lie, and true patriotism means stern resistance to the unlawful acts ol the powers that be. Is there never more to he opsnition to arbitrary rule ? Is there never more to be a limit to subservient submission '.' Mast amendments to the Constitution procured by force and fraud be ac cepted as law ? Are the majority of the citizens of this country to retrain heueefcHth from having a voice iti its affairs? Is the ltadical faction to I suffered to obliterate the Constitu tion altogether and forever ami to trample at will upon the rights of two-thirds of the people ? Have the Legislatures of three-fourths of the States voluntarily and of their own free will given in their adher ence to the new-fangled notions of Phillips and Sumner of liecvher ami Greeley? If they have then we miirht, iierhaits, fold our hands and "accept the situation." If they have, we mic-ht also raise the cry of "No discussion of dead issues," and accept the a mend men is as "accomplished facts." llut what is the truth in re gard to the matter." How anil by what means were the amendment adopted? 15y force and by fraud! by the exercise ot unlawful jtower on the part of Congress and the administra tion by open and unblushiug bri bery! It would seem so, if two of the most tyrannical measures with which we are aeiiuainted are to be coolly cla-'sed among the "dead issues" by ivmocrats and accepted as "facts" beyond and behind which there is to tie no lmiuirv and to right winch the only truly liberty-loving party does not feel inclined. e believe the time to protest is now. Now or never those who would stop tliis mad Kadi cal revolution must act. This year the people must reconstruct Oongn ss, or rather substitute a better one. No tyrant has ever more manifestly abused the power confided to him for the public good than has Uongress uoue has ever rendered himself mure justly amenable to popular indigna tion and punishment than the leaders of the ltadical faction. They have overthrown the public laws and time-honored chartered in stitutions. They have cruelly op pressed and wronged thousands of in nocent men. They have, by trickery and violence, forced upon the people of various States rulers whom the lat ter justly and cordially despise. They have wrested political power lroiuthc bands of the white man, and con ferred it in large measure upon the negro. They construct and overturn State Governments by their own des potic edicts, regardless of the will or right of the governed. They are the masters of this land, and if they be not now called to account, the American freeman must soon sink into the political serf. We do not be lieve in admitting anything that Is not true in recognizing anytliing that is not right; and the sooner the peo ple of this country set their feces sternly against the treason and fraud which culminated in the adoption of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth amend ments and oppose the amendments as the fruits of a base and ignoble crime against the Constitution and laws of our country, the better it will be for thent and lor the world.

TiiKr.R are still some who hesitate as to the aflirinance of accomplished facta. J lieae seem to a -. tie as , i a ( 'institutional Amendment wan merely au act of Cou- i ess, and could be changed by the act and will of any succeeding I'nnsrrtaw This, of course, is gross error. The amendments recently adopted are not acts of Congress, but are now parts of the fundamental constitution of the country, incorporated into it by the votes of three fourths of the .states, in accordance with the provision of the instrument itself. Whatever view may have prevailed as to the propriety of their adoption (the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments; . that has lieen settled by the votes of the Leg islatures of three fourths of the States. They have boen officially proclaimed, and held by the various departments of the government as parts ot the fundamental lw. They li-.te been incorporate;! into the e. :.. -nation ol the country. There they stand.; No change in political par ties, in the Congress, can affect them. They are now beyond the jurisdiction of i "oi Kress. Tho people of (South Carolina have, therefore, acted wisely in declining to run a tilt against accomplished facts. Nay. in recogiczing them aa of "the ilead issues" of the past, and in uniting upon a plat farm of honesty and good government lor the deliverance of '.heir State and the rescue of their coui aion wealth. Charleston (A. C.)nrutr, WTe appreciate fully, we think, the condition of affeirs in Bouth Carolina and the etlorts which our friends there are making to oust the scaliawags and ettrpet-baggers, who, in conjunction with the negroes, have done so much during the past few years to bring re proach upon itepubiican institutions and oppress and discourage the peo ple: but we never see admissions in a is inocrutic journal like those above quoted, without feeling that we ought to raise our voice against them. YY e do so in this case reluctantly, since the lourier heretofore has been a f m and steadfast advocate of princi ple a defender of the right at all times and under all circumstances. But what are the fact? Is it true that the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amend ments to the Constitution have been laufu'iy adopted ? This the (courier knows as well as we, and we are sony to see that it is willing to ignore all this and admit substantially, that the amend ments are valid, or if not valid are to be recognized as such as a matter of lHilicy by the Democratic partv of tioulh Carolina. We will agree that Congress may not now have the iwer to undo ail of its unlawful acts; but there is a vast difference UHween recognizing this feet, if it be one, and admitting that any illegal and fraudulent inter ference with the rights of the States and of the people must be acquiesced in and accepted as " accomplished facts" simply because a wicked and designing party who chanced to be in power saw fit to rWe rough-shod over the Constitution and oppess the jieople. We do not believe that forci ble resistance by a single State to un t'oustitutional acts would, in the prea- THK FRENCH HIMMANllER. M trie-Kdme-l'aU-ick-Maurico de McMahon, Duke of Masrenta. who takes command of the French armies, is rcxrted to trace his descent to an Jrish family who lost their fortune in the cause of the Stuart dn:isty,antl shared the exile ol James 11. They carried their pride and Ealamtry to France, distinguished themselves in mauy wars, and through advanta geous marriages mingled their blood with the highest nobility in the laud. The Duke of Magenta was born at Stilly, July, lsus, entered the military Know of St. Cyr, in I si,, ami alter graduating in was suit to Alge ria. As aid-tie-camp to General Achard, he took part in the expedi tion to Antwerp in was made captain in 1X33, Major of foot chasseurs in 1 sin. Lieutenant Colonel ot the for eigfc . legion in lsi2, Colonel of the Forty-first of the line in lsl.", and General ol brigade in 1848. When General Canrobert was recalled from the Crimea in WV, McMahon was ap pointed to succeed him as a General of division, and in that capacity led the assault .upon the Malakoff. His brilliant success on that occasion gave him the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor, and in IKio he was made Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath. He took an active tiart in the Franco-Italian war of ItfqtlL won the victory of Magenta, and with it the baron of Marshal and the title he now wears, lie represented I runt-t at the coronation of Frederick Wil liams of Prussia in lbtil: was at- ioiniei to tne command ot the Third Corps d'Armee in 1m'.2, and was nom inated tJovernor-General of Algera in 1S01. McMahon is considered one of the best soldiers in Europe. THE KKKXCU MINISTER JXE FOREIGN AFFAIRS. The present French Minister for Foreign A flairs is attracting consider able attention by the bold und decided manner in which ho is tlealini; with the Prussian-Spanish question. An exchange gives the following bio graphical sketch of him: His name and title is Anteine Airenor Alfred. Duke de Grammont. formerly Duke de Guiehe. and since the death of his father Prince de Bidache, He was born in Paris, August 14, 1819. He entered the polytechnic school in 1837, nut ueciintsl the aDOOllit incut to the artillery corps offered him two years inter, ami made lus dtOut in Joo2, when he was sent Minister to Cassel. lie was appointed to Stuttgardt in lSA, to Turin in and was resi dent Ambassador at Borne from 1857 to 18C1. While at Turin he used his influence to induce the Sardinian gov ernment to enter the alliance of the Western powers against ltussia. He is a commander of the Legion of Honor, and wears the grand cross of the order of Frederick of Wurtem burg and that of St. Maurice and St. Iazarus of Sardinia. The wife of the Imke de Grammont is au English la dy, daugher of Mr. Mackinuon, whom he married in 1848. TI1E RHINE AS A " BOUNDARY." A generation ago Victor Hugo wrote a book on the Khine, in which, besides giving the most fascinating ami pot tie of all descriptions of that famous stream, he cried out, "France, take back the Khine," as ht stood at the tomb ol Hoc he, who was buried on the shores of that river, and whose grave is to this day jiointud out to the curious tourist. Napoleon, the bitter enem v of H uvn has tried on several occasions to make of this cry a national slogan to call to his supjiort all parties in France. The Khine is, according to many French men, the "natural boundary" of 1 ranee. The Germans whom the Emperor would like to make his sub jects, however, do not agree with him. The people of the German Khenish provinces are German in language, tastes and feelings, and have no admiration of Napoleon III or his policy. Belgium, with its French-speaking population and with but fortv vears of national existence to overturn, would be a much easier acquisition for r ranee. THE OPINION OF THE FRENCH MIN ISTER AT WASHINGTON. M. Paradol, the new French Min ister, while en route to Washington, was interviewed at a New York- hotel by a reporter of the New York Herald, with the following result: Iteporter I am aware, sir, that you left trance before the present war cloud appeared on the European hori zon, and therefore you can say noth ing of the present situation that we do not know of already; but you are thoroughly acquainted with the tem per of the French people. Is French w-ut mieni in favor of a war with Prussia? M. I'revost-Paradol Well, I speak for myself as a Frenchman. The people of France do not want war; they want peace, trade, commerce, industry. But should Prussia persist in her attitude of defiance to France insist upon putting a Prussian on the Spanish throne all France will Hi? for war. A Prussian on the Span ish throne! is it not ridiculous? Sir, it would be a blow at France an in sult not to be bt.ir.-n. The case of France and Pruia in this Hohen zollern affair is similar to that of the United States antl Mexico. Yon could not stand Maximilian in Mex-k-o; it would not do; the French can't stand a Prussian in Spain. But there will be no war. Bismarck is not such a fool as to go to war tin such a frivol ous pretext; the matter will be set tle.! by the Emperor. Keporter But, M. Paradol, sii pose, as is stated in some of the tele grams from England and France, thai your government will not be content with the declension of the Prince ljfopold (who, as you are doobtiotri aware, has relapsed into his original littleness), but insists, now that France is aroused, that Prussia shall observe the treaty of Prague, what then? M. Paradol Ah! that is another affair. Prussia (with emphasis) ought to observe the treaty of Prague. If the Emperor says she shall she will. There may be a war on that question but I can only give my opinion on these matters as an individual, not as a minister, for this complication arose alter 1 left b ranee. iteporter There seems to be in France just now not one, but several parties, all having different ideas of government, but united in opposition to tne empire, now would a war ut- fect them? M. Paradol A war with Prussia defense of the legitimate influence of France in the Peninsula would unite Orleanists, Bourbonists, Reds and all parties, mere will be put one party in an rrauce wnen the nrst shut is fired in defense of French honor, and mat the party ot the government HOW WILL THE WAR AFFECT Tills COUNTRY ? From tho St. Louis Democrat. The blockade of Prussian ports will materially aneet the manufactures and limit the supply, thereby enhancing values, wiui wmcn enhancement Great Britain and other countries must sympathize. Thus, whether gold goes up or down, manufactured goods must experience a marked ad vance. The producing industries particularly of the agricultural ant manufacturing classes, must be inter fered with and retarded, thus throw ing into other producing marts in creased demands, and consequent auz mentation of price. Great Britain will therefore reap a large increase of prostienty in her manufacturing dis tricts, and the United States will be called upon fur meats and gram. A protracted war would probably restore to our marine interests quite all that they lost during our own struggle, and t hat we shall have to pay in increased prices will be more than made up in the stir and activity of our shipping, and the quickening of our agricultural prosperity. Use growing confidence in our government securities ought not to be impaired, antl bonds, which may temporarily be lowered in price, will certainly be sought after as the struggle proceeds. 1 he present pms iicct is one for an advance in those of our borne product Hour, grain, etc. and a spirited stir in trade to avoid the increased prices that must necessarily prevail. From the New York Herald. Next to the increase in immigration will l-a demand for our breadstuffs, and high prices for our splendid grain crops. If the war lasts we shall even till some big gun contracts, and our workshops will buru gas. Europe will go on the debtor side of the books, in a very unqualified way. Our bonds at first w ill go down in the markets of Furupo, for there will lie a rush fur money to be handled in the great tinancial transactions, and all values held as investment will lie on the mar ket ; but this will be only a first effeet. Later it will be realized that the ImiimIs of this great, prosperous, peaceable ieople are the only securi ties worth holding, and they will be In demand at any price. CONSOLIDATION Of THE DEBT. The New York Bulletin sia has just consolidated 1 he entire capital of it is, say $24", 1100,600 goM. A tew weeks ago $67, S00.60Q was placed at four per cent., and it apieared probable that the balance of the fl'ioO.tloo would be quickly subscribed. Should it be necessary for Prussia to enter the Eurojiean money market her long sus tained integrity would assist her in making as advantageous terms as any omer government. I'KOIIAHLK CUXSEIH ENCES OF THE WAR. From the Now York Sun The consequences of the war can not but be serious. The recent inter view between the North German King and the Russian Czar at Ems seems to have had m view a clost alliance between these powers, for the purKjse of meeting a contingency which has now at length arrived. lionaparte having been the first to rush to arms, Europe may hold him responsible for the breach of the peace, and organize a coalition against his dynasty, in which Prussia, Rus sia, nweuen, anu npain may possibly be pitted against France, Austria, and South Germany Italy is also usually counted on the French side, though it is far more likely that this power should avail herself of the tide ol events to make Rome the capital ot Victor Emmanuel. As for Spain, Napoleon w ill probably, in the event of war, despatch one of the Princes of his dynasty, at the head of a powerful fleet and army, as ruler of that country, leaving Cuba at liberty to achieve her independence of the volunteers who now rule and rob her. The first object of the contending powers will unquestionably be to lo calize the war; but in view of the unsettled relations between Egypt and Koumaniaon the one hand and the Porte on the other, and the gen eral fermentation among the Chris tians of the East and the Slavic pop ulations of Austria, it is to be feared that the con tlagration will spread till over Euroe and Asia. This would give to ltussia a chance to get the Letter of Turkey, anil place England in the alternative of war or the ex tinction of her power in the East. As for the United States, the sym oath ies of our people are with Prirssla and of PRUSSIAN says Prus her debt. This is a city of strategic and historic importance. Shortly further on Is Bingen; and there begins the mar velous scenery which has given to the Khine such world-wide celebrity, and has made familiar the names of such trifling though picturesque hamlets as Oberwesel, St. Goar, Boppart, Ander- nach, Bacharacli, Remagen and the like. Midway among these is Cob lentz, overlooked by J,hrcnbre stein's castled night, and still further down the stream is the collegiate town or Bonn. To add all these to the long list Freueh towns would certainly be splendid gain to France; this is what is meant when Frenchmen cry with Victor Hugo: "Take back the Khine. It is, however, a large enterprise, and not likely to succeed. A FEARFUL INSTRUMENT OF WAR FA BE. The last aud most destructive of the death-dealing project iie.s the exolo sive bullet, designed by Perluiset, and executed by a trench artisan in the celebrated firearms factory of De visme, is described in the last num her ol the Arm; and Xary Journal rlxternaJJy quite similar to the ongi ual Miuie cylindrie-conical mass of lead, it is discovered, by an unscrew ing of its length about midway, to be internally a magazine of nilmiuale, The explosive compound dynamite powder, eondeiistd powder, or what ever it may be has an explosive force six times that of gunpowder. Experiments which have been made under the patronage of the Russian Prussian audjAustiiaa governments ami last by our own War Department demonstrate not only its effectiveness. but the singular properties its inventor has given it. "Being given the distance of the target, its density, the quautity of charge in the gun, and tne same of the ingredients constituting the projectile," he has established a most, exact relation, by accurate calculation, between the force necessary to explode lite projectile and its penetration before subjection to tins pressure. Thus the magazine can be so constituted that the passage of the bullet through a sheet ol paper will explode it, or so that the severe impact of iron or hard wood is needed for such a result. It is comforting to be assured that " a ball which would not explode in the body ot a soldier or a horse. not at a very limited distance, would explode in the more resisting body of an ammunition wagon." Though M. Pertuiset is the inventor ol the particular missile to which ou attention has been drawn, by a singu lar propriety of circum.stauees Prince 1'ierre Napoleon, tho bete noire of the Bonaparte family, appears to have been its inspirer. From a little nam phle t, badly translated .from an essay on explosive projectiles, written by tne crince, we are not surprised to learn that its author entertained the idea quite a number of years ago, and even applied to Devisuie to make him a gun of particular calibre, suited to a hollow projectile of copper, or of an alloy of lead and antimouv. The fact of Bevisme's declining to produce the arm, defeated the Frinee's purpose The ethics of slaughter are defined in no recognized c.xie, but there is a pretty general accord among nations that explosive bullets shall not be used in small arms. Our readers have not forgotten the convention into which, at the instance of Russia, the prominent nations of Europe entered a year or two ago. louring our own war tliere was an occasional sugges tion of such missiles being used, but we prefer to believe that the few cited instances were altogether imaginary We know that an invention of this nature whether Perttiiset's or not, we are uncertain was offered to the Confederates and declined, on the score of pure sentiment, by the Board oi examining umeers: and, ir our memory is not at fault, the infernal missile was considered in a similar spirit by our ar Department. At the recent trial of Pertuiset' projectile, made by the urdnanee De partmentai Washington, the purpose oi experiments seems to have been to (e monstrate its utilitv in exploding caissons, artillery .w agons, etc. The twenty-seven shots, made at all sorts of targets, proved the excellence of the fulminate for such purposes. W't are very sure that no civilize I gov erumeui w hi in' n-pos.-i io adopt an explosive mi -sue tor any oilier pur pose. Despite the partisanship of Prince Pierre, in a letter to his inn. rial cousin, Napoleon rejected it at once. COTTON 6INS. AQ-aa-KTO-V THE CHAMPION 8 Kus-ia; unit if England should be driven into the conflict, an appro priate opportunity may arise tor the settlement of our little bill against that power. France already owns the west bank of the Rhine from a few miles north of Basle, in Switzerland, to the fron dier of the Palatinate at Lauterburg. The possession of the last named dis trict would add to the list of French cities, Spires, with its old cathedral, and the fortified places of Landau and Neustadt, besides a largo number oi smaller towns and villages. In Rhe nish Prussia speaking always of the western shore ol the Rhine the first town of importance is Worms, asso ciated with the name of Luther.
