The iKttUigav.rr notes the fact that the insur r ction in Poland has shown ? ? nou-interven tion ' to be the system, ?a^d policy now of the European nations, and that Mr. Secretary Se wr.rd, in his reply to the recent proposition of the French (government, merely claimed in behalf of the United States the application of the same v^hohwoine doctrine* which Franc? hud already affirmed In regard to the insurrec tion of the Poles against ine Russian Govern ment. In this view the courteous rejection of the. French proposition by our Government seems to hare been received by all parties in Parts as a definite settlement oi the matter In issue^?precluding the opportunity or the pro priejyr of further overtures oi a similar kind. This shows the great praotieal excellence and the intrinsic value of the Secretary's reply. It shut off all attempts at interference or dictation lrum any quarter, Ine ffecting this, it rendered us the highest possible service in Enrope. The Chronitlr says the difference between the politic*} parties at the North is, that one party is in favor of proSfecuting the war to its legiti mate er.d, and conquering an honorable and permanent peace,-wttile the other is in favor ot stopping all military operations, drawing onr : oldiers from the field, nnd to sue for peace at fwt of humiliated, beaten and half-starved rebels. Til K NEGKO TROOH8. It is worthy of note that the latest infor mation from Port Koval chronicles the much greater success of the policy of employing ne gror* as soldiers than was anticipated by a large portion of the people ef the loynl States, ourself among the nunber. We learned from Assistant Adjutant General Town^end on his return from the Department of South Caro lina, facts concerning the condition of the first regiment of the kind brought into the field that prepared ns to hear, at a later day, of the ?uc 11 t>s of the expeiitneni. Col. Townsend as tiutd us that they were remarkably well drilled, cleanly, and obedient troops, evincing a condition'of discipline that augured well ior their efficiency before the enemy. Already we have news that tliey are satisfactorily fnlflll ing theee expectations. So far, their fir-.t ex pedition into the interior has been a complete su\c<-*?; for they had, when l:u>t heard from, accomplished ever thing hoped for up to thai t>m< iron: them; and, besides, had so conduct ed themselves in the rebel country :u? to prove that so far a* the. are concerned, the appre hension* eutertair.ed by many that wherever they i*netrated, indiscriminate rapine, arson, and mnrdrr oi defenceless non-combatants would attend their footsteps, were entirely ?vrounciless. On the contrary, it turns out that the 1'nited States has no more orderly and well-rondncted troops in the service than this e.tm? negro regiment. It is due to the truth and the cause that these facts shou Id be prompt ly realized by the country at large. Those who are thoroughly loyal, who orig inally objected to the employment of negroes us soldiers, so objected because apprehensive that their uss would do more harm than good, and will hail the success of the experiment, as explained above, with sincere gratification; as, if successful, the policy must be of great im portance in weakening the rebels and strength ening the Union cause. The good conduct of these troops and their success in the Aaftd, seem to bid fair rapidly to dissipate popular prejudice against their employment, while they will also be the means of Inducing nearly all the able-bodied contrabands to enlist in our service as last as they escape from the clutches of the rebels. By the arrival of the British Queen we have Havana dates to March 14. The insurrec tion in Santo Domingo, against the Spanish rule, has been very extensive, but failed to suc ceed. Official bulletins, which were published in Havana on March 11 and 12, announced its complete suppression. The Spanish papers of Cuba charge the Haytioc Government wifh having encouraged the insurrectionary move ment, and threaten the adoption of measures thst will prevent the recurrence of such acts. 1 he Rebel steamer Cuba had arrived in Havana from St. Marks, Florida. The British Queen touched at Nassan, N. P., and brought intelli gent from that plac* to the 15th inst. The contraband trade bet ween Nassau and the rebel pjits? pBinci; ally Charleston? appears to be rapidly incn asing. One of the steamers in the trade n- commanded by Captain Carlin, recent ly released from Fort Lafayette. Tim Tukitv with Liberia.?The treaty between the United States and Liberia is olii. ial pre mu l;;ated. There is to be perpetual pi hci ai.d friendship, and reciprocal freedom of commerce between the contracting parties, and they I ind themselves to treat each other on fating of the most favored nations, including the full protection of persons and properties. Our government engages never to interfere, utile > solicited by that of Liberia, in affair^ between thu aboriginal inhabitants and Liberia, in the territory and jurisdiction of that re public, a*:d citizens ot the I 'm ted States resid ing therein are desired to abstain from all such ii.tereourse with ^the abro^inal inhabitants as will tend to violations of the law and disturb ances d the peace of the country. Negotiation with the Indians.?The Commissioner of Indian Affairs had a satis factory conference yesterday with representa tive* of the Cherokees, Kiowas, Camanches, Acapatos, Apaches and Chuddos. These In dians are from the Rocky mountains, Denver, the borders of New Mexico and Utah, and the tribrs are scattered over a distanee of some hundred miles. A delegation of Utahs are ex pected this week. The object of the govern ment is to concentrate them so as to render morvsafi the routes to the gold mines and travel toward the Pacific, and to conclude with them treaties of pea<.e. tJ~A decree, previously ratified by the Pope of Home, has just been promulgated in New \ork city. It provides excommunication for all Catholics who fret married by a Protestant misutrr, and invests the power of proaonncing the anathema* in the Bishop. The decree, r.av ( ver, has been understood not to *>piy to former marriages. KTMr. Denys, a correspondent of the New York Utralti, has been convicted by a conrt martial of publishing contraband news and sentenced to six months bard labor. General Hooker has remitted the labor, and sent the offender beyond the lines of the army, never to return. Joseph Cox, the young clerk who ah t. <.nded from New York, on Tuesday last with in gold belonging to his employers, was foufcd stowed away in the aU-amer Arabia soon :.ib r her departure from Boston, was landed at Jiaiiiav, and will soon be brought back.

THK YANKEE ENEMY pVLY IfflliUNNMO TO FHiHT." ~ The Richmond Knqv.irtr u? ia a rnoni d* fpondent rarod, and says: "All reasonable mei ha?e by tbis time prob ably come to the conclusion thnt we have at least one other year's war before us, perhaps two. The pi ace delusion is blown away Ifeither from forHpn intervention aor from imperious decrees. Kinf -Oottoni nor from imagined friendship^ of Northwest, nor from stupid rumor about demoralisation in Yankee armi?8, does any hope o? peace beam upon us. We must fight or submit. What hallucination soever may be cherished b*- ^ome politicians, the soldiers in the field at least want to know, and ought to be told the plain truth, and the truth is that we are right in the middle of the war, and that during the* coming spring and summer that war is to be mure fierce and unre lenting than ever before The Yankee enemy is only beginning to fight. To buy provisions lor the army at current r.ites would call for the imposition of a debt upon posterity such as would make our children curse us in our graves. Grt at Union meetings are the order of the day at the North. Vallandigham, John Van Buren, Cex h (Jo., are thus noticed:??'In two,weeks more thii eloquent friend (Vallandigham)of ours, whose great speech is flying over the South in news papers and even pamphlets, (scarce as pap^r is,) will stand where John Van Buren stands now, and will be seen asking for war to the knife. The muse of Cox even now strings her lyre in silence and expectancy, ready to burst lorth into songs qf triumph over fallen Yicks burg and the crtfched rebellion writhing in ago- j ny. In two words, we are going to have a great campaign, and the greatest of all. The army wants every soldier. The country must and will sustain and arm them. If high spirit and honor do not impel stragglers to their duties let public opinion do it. Let women present crotchet needles to all laggards at home, as they formerly sent spinning distaffs to too patient gentlemen of France. "The crisis is upon us. The sun rises high, and spring breezes are makiug favorable and vrrdan4 battle-fields and firm earth beneath the ' lioqfB of cavalry and wheels of artillery. Bat tle buds and will blow eie long. War is in season and peace is out-of order." THE PORT HUDSON AFFAIR. By an error in the transcript ot the dispatch fri>m the Southwest Pass, in relation to the passage of the Port Hudson batteries by Com. Faria^ut, we followed yesterday, there was an apparent discrepancy between its date and that of the rebel accounts of the same affair. It turns out, however, that both accounts d^-a i?i ate the same date, the ni&rht ot the 14th, as that on which the combat took place. DISMISSED. Major Lawrence A. Williams, of the <>th U. S.

Army officers are satisfied that the strength of the'rebels at Port Hndson has been muuh underrated, and that tb^ plac? Is occupied by at least forty-five thousand men, a lar|,% propor tion of them well drilled and accustomed to service. It is said that General Joe Johnston is or is to b<? in comnfand. Port Htidson, with t!ie natural advantages of its position, its fortifica tions skillfully constructed; arid- laid out, its large body of defenders and its experienced and able commandant, will undoubtedly prow a dearly benefit acquisition when it comes into th>> hands of the government. It is a matter for very grave doubt whether this department can at present spare an effective forge sufficient for its reduction. ? The danger of a flank movement by the enemy, bringing a force between the advancing army" and Baton Rouge, or falling suddenly upon that place, is not to be lost sight of for an ir stant. In a word, General Banks has not men enough under him tit for service to under take a forward movement of great magnitude, and at the same time properly protect the terri tory already occupied, and ke?p up his connec tion with his base of operation*. THE heal FIRFOSK ANT) IMP3RT AXCK OIT THK MOVEMENT. I am informed by an official of very high position, that the* movement against Port Hudson is merely a feint to cover an attempt to be made within a few days, if it did not tike ? lace last night, !? run the fleet under Admiral 'arragnt past Port Hudson, for the purpose of taking possession of that great hghway for the passage of Confederate supplies, the Ittwl River, and of stopping the career of the t^ueen of the West and her associates between Port Hudson and Vicksburg. If the fleet should succeed in this enterprise they would inflijt a damage upon the rebellion hardly to be overestimated. The amount of supplies of provisions and manufac tured goods crossing the Mississippi for the Confederacy, within this regi>n, now wholly under rebel control, is prodigious. To obtain permanent possession of the Red river and the Mississippi aljng this region would be worth more in the United States, in the present and the future, tuuu almost any other possible success. The rebel are fnllv aware of this as the presence of two great armies at Yieksburg and For: Hudson,and the force under Bragg before Rosecrans?which al-o protects the Mississippi by gnarding the flanks of the armies on its baaks?sufficiently attests. The time is not lonj passed since a f- w gunboats, actively cruising up and down the river south of Vicksburg, could have kept it open from the lielta to that point, and have prevented the erection of tlie fortifications which hare made a Gibraltar of Port Hudson. Even now there are flv* or six bluff's unpro tected by strong defences between Vicksburg and Port Hudson, and the advent of a few hea\ ily armed steamers upon that part of the river would prove a godsend to the Union cause. Give the rebels time. and there is no doubt that they will make the most of the natural stieiitUli of these positions. Vicksburg and Port Hudson now in our hands, it would be m cessary to occupy those intermediate I4>utfs without delay, build strong works upon them, and place strong garrisons therein. Then ~3.(H 0 men would be none too few to hold the river and keep its navigation possible, until the successes of onr arms in the interior should render it impossible that the enemy could at tempt to regain Hie control of the great aorta of our western prosperity. nA.

The trade on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal has opened unusually brisk, cargoes of all de scriptionsarearrivingdaily.and il we werejpre pared bore to handle the coal as fast as it arrives the merchants, laborers and canal company might reap a rich harvest this season; bat unfor tunately for the trade, we cannot handle more than a third of the coal that usually arrives, and the Alexandria canal being closed, there is no outlet for the surplus trade, and will not be at present, unle ss we can succeed in raising the bridges in order to let the boats pass out into the river. This subject I suppose will be dis cussed at the next meeting of the Common Council, and if permission be granted to raise the bridges we will hafe added *> our trade a new impetus; but if this privilege be refused it will not only injure the trade on the canal, but may materially damage our port by forcing this surplus trade to seek an ontlet in some other way, and most probably by again open ing the Alexandria canal.
