Some of our religious cotemporarics are becoming extravagantly bilious over the " Sunday Mails." We thought when we had defined our position and taken sides with the "Witness," that the question would be relieved from the neces sity of a longer discussion. It seems, how. ever, there are some contumacious "aocu Jar" presses disposed to justify the desecrn. tion, going on the ground of public nccessi ty, and that the government doosn't any more belong to the Presbyterians than it does to the Catholics. What audacity, to be sure! Should the Postmaster General comply with the petition, now being circulated, to top the " Sunday Mails," wo hope ho wii require the steamers engaged tn carrying traus-allnntic mails, to come to anchor wlier ever in the wido waste of wuters they may happen to bo nt twelve o'clock on Suturday mght. Il might bo appropriate, too, to pass a law requiring snil vessels also to heave to on Sundays, furl their canvass, and pipe all hands abaft the mainmast to prayers Seiiously, wo are afraid ono or two of our religious cotemporarics will make themselves appear very ridiculous, if not inconsistent boforo they get through w ith tho special job they have undertaken. And if thoy would allow ono of the "seculars", it might be sug gested thnt there is n good deal of commend able work to do before the Sunday Mails can be legitimately reached. We question no man's religion, piety, or motives doubt no ono's sincerity or faith, and liavo n reverential respect for nil things pertaining to sacred of fices; but we lack n long ways of believing that some terrible calamity will come upon the nation, or that the wot Id is to be damn ed incontinently, because the mails aro car ried on Sundays; and wccan'l help thinking that our Christian brethren might more strongly exemplify their profession and call ing than by running out and hallooing nt tho top of their voices nt every railroad train that passes on the first day of the week. riiANcK.

As was predicted, the through travel is increasing rapidly, and our railroads are bound to do an immense business in car rying passengers. Nine years ago when this paper commenced advocating the construc tion of the East Tennessee and Georgia rail road, the enterprise met not only with op position, but a storm of ridicule greeted all who favored it. The proposition to "build a railroad parallel with the brood and maj s tic Tennessee," was treated as preposterous. Well, wo have lived to see, not only that road built, but an entire line of roads com pleted, connecting New Vork and New Or leana and bringing those hitherto remote points in daily intercourse. Though in the prime and vigor of life, we can recollect when the commercial marts of the Union were long weary weeks apart, and when a man left his cold Northern home for the sunny South he generally mndo hi will and called in all his friends nnd acquaintances, and bade them farewell ia a solemn manner, like one closing up his earthly affairs, or starting on a pilgrimage fraught with immi nent perils on every hund. Now, thanks to the genius and perseverance of a few enter prising nud self-saciificing men, lie may take the cars at New York on tho first day of the week, visit New Orleans and reach home the following Sunday in time for Church, tra versing the length of the Union to and fro. Should our valuable existence be spared to the country and our friends ten or a dozen years longer, weliave no doubt wo shall be able to make the trip to California and back by rail in half the time it used to consume in going from any of the Eastern cities to New Orleans. What has already been ac complished undor almost insurmountable diliiculties, gives us an earnest of what the genius and enterprise of the country will achieve in the next decade. Not inappropriately we annex the follow ing paragraph, which we find afloat: "The trial of Aaron Durr was going on in Richmond, Vu., June 3, 1807, and the Court was detained by the non-arrival of Gen. Wil kinson from New Orleans. Mr. Kay, the Uuited States Attorney said" We have looked nt the map, and find the distance from New Orleans to Richmond, f,370 miles. If he conies by land, he must travel on horse back, lie could probably ride 30 miles per day, and by this data, he would require 43 days from Now Orleans to this city." Ireland. A fund of one hundred thou sand dollars has been raised in New York to proselyte the poor Papists in Ireland and win them over to the Protestant faith in other words to open a new field for missionary speculation. Meanwhile the I'apish Church in America is winning over hundreds of Pro testants to the Catholic faith, and in the very precincts where the hundred thousand dol lars was raised for this purpose of question able practicability, squalid poverty holds its cheerless home, and widows nnd orphans dui ly cry for bread.

He says he wants men who are "not afraid of the smell of gunpowder or tho glitter of steel." A good mnnv of that sort have already gone to Kansas some of whom have settled down into quiet citi zens, and the balance aro now outlaws nnd brigands, plundering and murdering wherever they can do so. If Mr. Defriese will take our advice, he will stay "to home." There is neither honor or glory to be gleaned in the fields of Kansas just now. Cool.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT. The following is the message to Congress, from President Buchanan, accompanied by a communication from Gov. Cuuiming, dated May 2nd: Washington, June 10, 1858. To the Senate and House of Representatives: I transmit a copy of a despatch Irom Gov. Cummins to the Secretary of Stale, dated at Great Salt ltke City on the 2nd of May, and received at the Department of State mi yes terday. From this there is reason to believe that our diliiculties with the Territory of U;tah havo terminated, nnd the reign of the Constitution and the laws has been restored, I congratulate you on the auspicious event. I lose no lime in communicating this infor mation, and in expressing the opinion that there will be no occasion to make any appro priation for the purpose of calling into ser vice the two regiments of volunteers author ized by the act Congress, approved on the 8th of April last, for the purpose of quelling dis turbances in the Territory of Utah, for the protection nnd supply of emigrant trains, and the suppression of Indian hostilities ou the frontier. I am the more gratified nt this satisfacto ry intelligence from Utah, because it will aflord some relief to the Treasury, at a time demanding from us the strictest economy, nnd when the question which now arises upon every new appropriation is whether it be of a character so important and urgent as to brook no delay, and to justify and require a loan, and most probably a tax, upon the people to raise the money necessary for its payment. lu regard to the regiment of volunteers authorized by the same act of Cotigreas to be called into service for the defence of the frontiers of Texas against Indian hostilities, I desire to leave this question to Congress, observing at the same time that, in my opin ion, the State can be defended for the pres ent by the reglar troops, which have not yet been withdrawn from its limits. JAMES BUCHANAN. tW The loading democratic journals dis play no little tremulousness overthe attempt of a few silly men to get up a new political organization with the specious title of the "People's Party of the Union." They are evidently haunted, sleeping nnd waking, with the idea that it is "the old Whig party in disguise," or an "attempt to revive the Know Nothing party," or a "fusion of fag ends to drive the dominant party from pow er." There is a class of men nnd n class of papers in this country which have been in the pay nnd patronage of the democratic pnrty so long that they look with jealousy and suspicion upon every movement outside that party. Actuated mainly by mercenary and selfish motives themselves, they nre ever ready to attribute other than patriotic Bentiments to all who oppose them: "Puspicton always haunts the guilty mind; The tiiief doth fear each buali an officer." We have no faith in any attempt tn or ganize a new party b'y a few ambitious poli ticians tit Washington or anywhere els,?. Such movement, to be successful, must come from among the people themselves, nnd what we publish on the subject, we publish ns we do other news matter or political gossip. At the samo time, we nre far from admitting that opposition to modern democracy is an offence which smells to heaven, or that n combination to overthrow and render it pow erless for evil in future, would bo treason to the government. Not by any means. Let the tremulous sentinels steady themselves their party is finishing itself up rapidly. Nothing but the presence of n third candidate in the field saved it in 1856 without aid from the same quarter il will be annihilated in 'CO. Mexico The Ups and Downs there.

Anarchy is now bo general, that al most everybody appears to be in arms against everybody. Zulouga is nominally Presideut, but his authority docs not seem to bo recog nized or respected much beyond the capital, nnd even thero ho is only enabled to main tain his position by imposing tho most out rageous exactions upon the foreign popular tion, and by restraining the freedom of the press. Under these circumstances, of course it ought not to create any surprise to learn by the next succeeding arrival, that this pup pet of the Pope of Rome has censed to reign, and thai Juarez (or Santa Anna,) by some new turn of events, has been installed in his place.

The recent aggressions upon the nation al flag and the rights of citizens, in various parts of the world, says the Savannah Re publican, havo been a subject of universal interest with the American people. All seem united in the opinion and desire that some thing should be done to assert and vindicate our rights, bot in every move in that direc tion, at the veiy uutset, we are stared in the face by the humiliating truth that we nre really unable to defend ourselves that des pised and baffled though we be, this great nation has no means ut its command to en force its rights and Recurc the respect of others. Except in case of netuul invasion, or when we have been offended by a weak neighboring power readily uceesaiblc, there is no remedy. We have to fold our arms, talk belligerently, and do nothing. Look nt our long controversies with New Granada and Paraguay, with Spain, nnd the still more recent piratical agressions upon our commerce in the j?ulf of Mexico, and within sight of our very shores; and what have we done, and what are wo going to do, in regard to these insults and injuries? Sup pose that England avow thu acts of her na val commanders in the Gulf, how and when would we resent the wrong? Would we, ns n brave nnd powerful nation, as we claim to be, take measures of redress on the spot and vindicate the national honor ? Could we do it? Or would wo, of necessity, score down the wrong against her, with the understand ing that it should be resent.id as snnn as ire are able! Is there an American citizen w ho can contemplate this stato of things without a feeling of humiliation and shame! Who is responsible for it? This is a question which we propose briefly to consider. Wo hesitate not to charge the present im potent and mortifying condition of the coun try upon the Democratic party. The very fact lhat they have had almost uninterrupted possession of tho government for thirty years, is sufficent to establish the charge, without going into nn enumeration of the particulars. Nor is this delinquency to be laid nt the door of the Executive department of the government. Year lifter year have the President nnd Head of the War Depart ment tuged upon Congress the total inade quacy of the naval branch of the public de fense, either to protect our rapidly increasing commerce, or the rights of the country in a collision with nny respectable power. Twen ty years ngo a distinguished Representative from this district prepared n plan for an in crease of the Navy and submitted it to Con gress, with such arguments nnd exhibits Hint should have insured it n prompt considera tion and action on the part of the federal legislature. All these calls, however, have been unheeded, and the country has been al lowed to drift along until some deep disgraco should arouse it to n sense of its character nnd danger. There was do limo to attend to those crying necessities of the country. Personal schemes of ambition, presidential aspirations, considerations nfjecting the per sonal preference of "Bunconib," were loo important to be set aside fur such trifles us tho necessary legislation of the country. The one contemptible question of Kansas, involving nothing practical to nny section, has been kept up solely for this purpose by members of Congress from both tho north and the south, and has consumed time and money enough to linve built us a Navy cquul to that of England. But wo need not nrguo Ibis question of the utter faithlessness of tho Democratic party to the country nnd the constitution. Every step of their progress for twenty years goes to establish the charge Hint they havo been utterly absorbed with the plan and pur poses of self, and as utterly treacherous to the best interests of the nation. Mr. Toombs declared in the Senate, but a few days ago, that our government wns the most corrupt one on the earth, nnd Hint llio corruption was confined, for llio most part; to (he Logislu live department, that which spiings directly from tho people nnd is presumed to bo held to the strictest account. The position is nl most conclusive against popular government: yet il is true. Whatever may be the inference ns regards the soundness of our institutions, it is at least nn unanswerable, withering condemns' tion of those to whom their uinnngemeut has been entrusted the Democratic party. W trust the country mny feal alive to the start ling truth, and thai the people may drive out tho political pirates w ho have so betrayed their confidence and done so much to degrade nnd disgruco tho nation. Jim Lane Disposed of by the Tiiipunr. The New York Tribune, noticing the tele graph report of an affray nt Lawroncc, Kan sas between Gen. Lane nnd Mr. Jenkins, in which the latter was killed, says of Lane. "Ho has been a conspicuous talker in favor of resisting by force Border Ruffian outrage nnd rule. He was chosen Major General ol militia by the last Territorial legislature, but has not done nny fighting in that capacity at least none that we nre nwnrn of. Ho is quite likely now to migrate to Arizona, if the Sheriff should interpose no objection." Washington, June 10, 1858. Official information has been received from Governor Cuniming of his arrival at Salt Cily, nnu lavoraoio reception mere, llrigliam Young formally delivered to linn all authori ty, counselled the peoplo to obedience.

The most startling items of the news from Europe relate to the changes w hich nro ta king place in France. It appears, as every one supposed, that the murderous duel be tween M. de Pene of the Figaro, nnd M. Hycne of the army lias led to nn outburst of violent feeling among the civilians of France. It would seem that so soon ns the conspira cy of the officers to murder Do I'enu nt nil hazards became generally known, n book was opened nt the office of the journal to which the unhappy editor belonged, nnd every civilian who desired to vindicate his caste by fighting a duel w ith n military man in scribed his name therein. In a few hours, it is said, the book was so full that supplemen tary volumes seemed likely lo bo wanted; but the government, wisely foreseeing llio consequences of such a scandal, sent police men to close it. This tells n very plain t.ilu of llie revival of the old strile betw een soldier nnd civilian In France, in no country have tho two clas ses been totally devoid of jealousy of ctfth other; in France that jealousy has often ri pened into bloodthirsty mid implicahle ha tred. There has been a time, within the present century, when, in the provincial towns of France, uu officer could not let his sabre clank on the pavement without having his face slapped by some hot blooded civilian, and when whole regiments have been con fined to their barracks for weeks together through n four of the consequences of their hatred of the civilians, if they were let loose. Such a time was thu last months of thu first Napoleon's empire. Then, the weight of tho military despotism under which Franco groaned had become so gievious that men of nil parlies forgot their mutual animosities to join together in one great tin ti soldier party. Now, the same causes are producing the same result. The De Pene duel is an indi cation of thu tyranny which tho French en dure at the hands of the army; the book nt the Figaro olliv-e teaches that men are uniting to repel lhat tyranny. African Emigration. Tho Charleston Courier, publishes n reply of Secretary Cobb to nn application to clear a vessel from Charleston for the coast of Africa, "for the purpose of taking on board African emigrants, in accordance with the emigrant passenger laws, nnd returning w ith the same to the United States." Mr. Cobb directs thu col lector of the port of Charleston not to grant n clearance to the vessel, as the conviction is irresistiblu that the object of the proposed enterprise is to bring these "African em igrants" into the country with thu view either of making slaves of them, or of holding them to service or labor. If so, it is nn nt. tempt to evade tho laws of the country on the subject of African importation. Continued Decline in Trade. Tho im portation of foreign goods continues lo de cline. During the mouth of May just ended, the tulul importations ul this purl were oulv eleven millions and a half, against eighteen and three-quarters during .Mac, 1N.V7, and eighteen and n half in May, '50. Thu im ports lor tho year thus far, compare as fol lows w ith the two last years: Importations of lureign goods, including specie, for January to May 1856 jillO 340,25-J Do. do.," 1857 1U5 590,501 Do. do., 1858 61, 008,19:2 In other words, We havo taken less than half as much foreign mcrchandiso this year ns last. Our exports compare as follows: Exportsfor January to May, 1850 1:1,3(10.919 Do. do., 1857 46,41)11,641 Do. do., 1858 36,516,4653 Altogether the prospect is that by thu mouth of August or September wo shall have a pretty lively trade springing up, as people must be clothed, and prosecute their trades, nnd as the country must he gulling uaru ui goous. j no reduction ol hlty per cent in our imports is a grand sign. If we could keep up the reduction to this rate for some years, this would become the buuking centre of thu world. A'. Y. J braid. The African Save Trade. A few of the ultra, radical, run mad advocates of this odious and infamous traffic, continue to push their offensive nud foolish views before the American people. Thero is no excuse, for the rampant and heterodox advocacy of such a thing nt the present time. Neither religion, humanity, justice or the wants of the nge will justify the re-establishment of a traffic which is abhorrent to tho feelings and convictions of ninety -nine hundredths of Ihu American people, East, West, North and South. The proposition for re-establishing this trade is in bad taste und worse principle; and we hope the Southern people whom the movers of this agitation all'ect lo believe are to be benefited by this traffic but who were themselves llio main movers in declar ing the trudu piracy, will put the matter to rest, by indignantly frowning down tlm ef forts of the paltry demagoi;ues who would ride into positions of honor or emolument if heed be, upon the ruins of our fair lieiitago of freedom. .ash, Ihiihj Sews. ltfm Dispatches from Washington, in the New York Tribune, indicate that the appre hended troubles with England will soon be satisfactorily ndjiisted.
