In the West Indies, similar enthusiasts have delivered over tlio whites to the feroi ity of the blacks ; j and \.-i they complain <■! the victims ol such madness being discontented. How j is a j„, - ihle to give libert) to Afrit an when tin) are destitute ol any -p. .< ! ~t civilization, and ignorant even of v hat a colon) or mother country is. Do j \«.u suppose that, had they keen aware ; ~l what they were doing, they would have given liberty t<> the blacks?

But now, alter the experience we have had, to maintain the same princi ples cannot be done in good faith , it can be the result only ol overweening self confidence or hypocrisy." \et the United States, with all this experience before its eyes, is frantic for the initne diate abolition of slavery. It will not even accord the five years of apprentice ship permitted by the British Emancipa tion Act, although it required live bun died years to wear out tchiti slavery in the British islands and render the transition from servitude to liberty safe and salutary. The African can 'be clothed with the habits and desires of a treeiiian by a simple act of immediate and unconditional liberation! In the palmy days of her African slave trade, Gleet Britain transferred above Mf«n hundred thousand negroes to this! side of the Atlantic, which ia believed to J be the most extraordinary example io-j tbr history of mankind of so considera j bh* a removal from one part of the world I RICHMOND, VA.. SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 81, 1864. !to another. In 1807, having turned phi- | lantbropist, she put 11 peremptory stop | to the slaw trade; notwithstanding which, the si-.ve tra.le became doubled j in extent and quadrupled in horrors ' - Whilst the agricultural produce of the British West Indies rapidly declined, th.-.- colonies of other nations which still retained slave labor received an im petus o! prosperity which is almost in credible. Puerto lii", which twelve years befon only exported rattle and coffee and imported sugar, exported, in a short period alter the passage of the British Emancipation Act, more than a sixth of tlie whole British consumption, j Iho in. reuse of the sugar exportation from Cuba and Brazil was equally marked j and wonderful. This prodigious increase j was the result ot the emancipation mad- J ness of Great Britain, and was, of course, j j only obtained by a vast increase in the | ; importation of the African race. j 'Itu whole history of mankind proves 1 that plavery is a necessary step in the j progress of civilization. Without it. avage man never has forked, and never can be induced to work. Fur that reason it could not be expected from Greece or Koine, n-.i among our Saxon progeni tors lor five hundred years'; for that rea son ii still exists over the larger portion ol the Globe. Whatever evils may be attendant on servitude, they are unim portant in comparison with the total stoppage of the advance and prospects of j th.' human race which would follow universal abolition. If the L'nited States j could succeed in the overthrow of the Confederacy, und of slavery within our limit-, we should have the ! stein consolation of knowing that it had J totally and forever involved its own pros peiity and power in the common ruin. Scarcely a mail arrives frdtu Europe : that does not bring a statement from Lord Palmerston or Russell, or both, that j_ n r.uul * ni* ii Is t.i [.reserve the mosl | I iii-id neutrality between the Amcrieau Brt.nl . and that, in theii opinion, \ ! the time foi intervention has not yet ai ; rived. The war has lasted now netuly toui years, aud the same stereotyped !mi ive is constantly crossing the At- j lantic, until it seems to have become _, | I 1,-ulai part of the invoicu of every | ': steamer, ll it should last four hundred years, and the two old earls, who seem jto have as many livi s it- a rat, could live !so I-M:-, we should bave the same ines ~,,. f. the end of tlio chapter. The time for intervention will only arrive when America is destroyed, the Revolu ] tion of 'T'i avenged, and the only com I mercial rival of Gie.it Britain swept ' from the face of the earth. These two old gentlemen seem to be j putting themselves to a great deal oi un nci i- ii v trouble. At their tune of life, the) would tv itei I'l.iplo, themselves in settling theii own individual att-ursfur n future state of existence, and givesublu nary, and especially trans-Atlantic things, the go-by. We are not so* hopclesslv thick headed as not to comprehend _l_e same statement when it is made a hun dred tuiif. over. They need not behur rying their gouty old legs to every steamei and sending over their compliments j "rigid neutrality, etc , but not yet time ; to intervene." They are both very in-j teresting persons , and that intelligence, when thej first communicated it, was a verainteresting piece of news; but we vt nture to surest that the best tiling in the world loses by infinite repetition.— Their explication of the position of Great Britain is well understood both here and in the United States, us they themselves also are. If they expect tokeep the United States in good humor by the eternally reiterated declaration of their neutrality, they have adopted a angular mode of effecting their object, it is precisely the recognition of the South as a belligerent which lias of fended the United States past all atone ment. The United States 10-.k upon the Soyth as Great Britain does upon Ire land pert and parcel of the empire and here is England, exalting her rebel lious province to the u.gnity of a bel ligerent, and constantly declaring that she will not take sides with either. — It was lately urged in the United States Senate, that, but for the re cognition of the Confederacy as a bel ligerent power, Semines and our other cruisers would have been treated by the whole world as pirates, and, consequently, the commerce of the United States have been safe from harm. The speaker therefore proposed that a demand should be made upon Great Biitain for all the losses which Yankee comineice has sus tained by Confederate cruisers. The fact that, these cruisers arc principally British built ami British-manned has led to a \ prevalent idea in the North that thryarc j neither more nor less than British priva- j teers, titled out frith the knowledge of tlu- British Government to prey upon ' Yankee commerce. This is a very un- | ihaiitable notion, we admit , but it none j the less exists, and, should the cause oi the Confederacy fail, England will be called upon to make good all damages to Yankee merchantmen in this war, and, what is more, she will have to foot the bill. For, in the event of its success, the j United States will be no longer the same j nation thai it was when, in the palmy days of that political eunuch, James I Buchanan, English gunboats chased and boarded our own .essels on our own toast, and when .1 ihn Bull twisted the nose and slapped the jaws of brother Jonathan as suited his sovereign con Ivenience. The United States was then like a horse w nn ass, that did not know i its own strength The exemplary Bu . lianan took kindly every affront put I upon his nation, and made many polite bows in recognition of the condescension. 1 But even if the war had not disclosed to the United States itsown military capaci ties, the eagerness of England to avoid a conflict with that powei ould rouse its valor to a dangerous point. Whilst Great Britain has been seeking, by every indirect means, to do it mischief, she has fondled, like a spaniel, upon the Yankee Government, to avoid an open rupture. ! Such, at least, is the view taken of mat ters by the Yankee people, and their memory of an injury is remarkably good Should a consolidated, gigantic military despotism dominate at souse ■ future day in tins hemisphere, as.Russia | does ni the East, "our cousins" across the Atlantic can re lie t at theii "leisure 1 upon the fruits oi British neutrahl jln that event, the British Parliament ' •ui_ht as well execute a .fait claim deed , i r ' ■ Uo all its possessions on tins continent ! and bid good-bye to its.dominion of the i seas, ! OUR WILMINGTOS CORRES PONDENCE. Wilmington, North Carolina, j December 10, 1804. , There has been considerable excite ii.ent here for the last two or three days, and especially yesterday, when the local forces were called out and other mea sures taken to resist thereported*landing oi theenemy. Without giving the au thority upon which the statement is ! made,' 1 may remark that intelligence has : been received t>> the effect that a land' force, estimated at twenty thousand men. j together with the tleet of monitors and Lmiboat: which has foi some lime beeu I assembling at Fortress Monroe, sailed on Friday, the loth, for the sooth, with the intention oi making a descent on the coast in the woinity of Newborn and \\ ilmington. Other facts and circum stances were reported in connection with the expedition which I need not stop to relate. If Wilmington had been the destination of the enemy, the fleet should have arrived off the mouth ol the Cape i Fear onSaturday; any bow, on Sunday , bill up to the hour at which I Wiile 5 : IP. M. Monday nothing has been seen or j I heard of it, either here -.r at Newbern.— The weather, which is rough outside, j may have made it necessary for the moni tors to put into port at some point further north, or the fleet may have l*pt on to Charleston or Port Royal—provided, al ways, that it has sailed at all. Beast j Butler is reported to be in command of the expeditionary forces, and this leads ' to the belief that their destination is the ! j South Carolina coast. At this inclement I and stormy period of the year, it would be a dangerous operation for an enemy to attempt to land an army by such boats upon the open beach, and it would be j quite as difficult to subsist it there after, it had landed, it is out of the <|uestion I to land artillery and cavalry. It would j appear necessary, therefore, for theenemy first to redme the forts at the mouth of j the Cape Fear by a sea attack, which is-; considered here to he impossible, owing j to the strength of the iorts and shore j batteries and the insufficient dep-h of ; the water. A few days will decide! w nether the expedition has sailed at all and-fff so, to what point and in what j force. _•» Trustworthy accounts from Oeorgia are sufficiently discouraging. Some woe- J fill blunders have been committed there, and some in Kichmond. Sherman's movement will be finally and fully sue ceeafuL A base will be secured on the j sea, from which our hues of communica- . tioii w ill be assailed, and an effort made J to isolate Lee's army in Virginia and to cut off its supplies The grand ob ject he has in view, however, ii not the | destruction of railway lines and the re duction of Savannah and Charleston; these are only means to help him lo an end, and that end-which is the real object of his advance to the sea and of Grant's present comprehensive combina tions—is the complete isolation of Lee's army and the enforced evacuation of Virginia by the Confederates. The en emy, once in possession of Savannah, Charleston and Wilmington, would be in a position t«> successful.) assail our com rnunication at the railway angles or el , bows at Goldsboro', Biaiichville and Milieu. These, it not strategic, are, at all events, most important points. In deed, if any place in the Confederacy may be called a vital point, it i< Branch v.He; and. if Sherman- success extend to Charleston, it will require an army to defend it. it may well be doubted, therefore,; whether the President and i.eneral Lee, looking alone to the security of Rich | inond and Virginia winch it is feared lengrosses too much the attention of j both did not lose an opportunity to place the safety ol Virginia beyond fu turc danger, ".i.l al tin- same time to tiil.e tlie loe a fatal blow, when they it-, lined to send HJ.OUU seasoned troops to Georgia. With thi- force, added to the forces already there, the destruction ..f Sherman would bave been assured. There has not been the lea t dangei ol an attack upon Richmond ami Peters burg since the last assault, on the _..lb uf l»e,ember. Ail of Grant's recent j manoeuvres were undertaken for the ptir ! pose, doubtless, of producing a ditlerent I impression, ami to preve# reinforce ! incuts being sent to Georgia. 'Ibis i.s not more evident now' than it was two weeks airo ; and the wonder is that I ever) body did not see it. Burial oi __« Yankee Minister at Paris.—A letter from Paris, dated the 6th instant, gives an account ot the bul id of the remains of Mr. Dayton, the Yan kee Minister to France.

Heaill ol an old ACTOR. The death of James William Wallack, a., a.t0i.,.1 the "old school," i- announced in the New York paper- The Tin ts publishes the following obituary of him "dames William Wallack was born in London in 1793. Both his parents were on the stage; In- father, William Wal lace hem- a dist nguished comedian and vocalist and his mother, Ehzabeth|Bield, playing the leading female characters with Mi. i_.arr.ek l-.r sereral year- lie made his lirst appeal nice in London at the age of seven, and, alter ph. ing boy.-' parts for some time, passed to tbe A. a f-mic Theatre, established by Queen harlotte, m Leicester street, Leicester Square, where English and lieriiian children appeared on alternate nights. - Here he attracted the attention of Rich ard Brinsley Sheridan, who gave him an engagement at Drury bane. That the atre being Mihse.-ueutly burned down, te went to Ireland; but in 1839 returned . England, and on the opening night at the New Drury Lane appeared as " La ertes in Hamlet. "At the ageol twenty two he replaced NUMBER J 57. Mr. Booth in playing ' lago' to Kean's ■ Othello. 1 About this time he received very tempting oilers from New York, and having, by the intervention of Lord By ron, who was hi- personal friend, ob tained two years' leave of absence from the management of Drury Lane, he made his first appearance in America at the Park Theatre, of this city, September 7, 1818, in tho chaiarter of ' Macbeth.' -- Alter two years of remarkable success here, be returned to London, where he remained only one season, making then j a second visit to America. Having bee_ injured shortly atterwards by the upset- S ting of a coach, he went home to recruit, j but returned for another season to the Inwteil States, and after that became j stage manager of Drury Lane, under Bl listen, pciiorming also the leading cha racters. In 1 *-.:-.t'«, he opened the National Theatre, at the corner of Church and Leonard streets, in this city. In lßSf>, it was burned down, and during the next ten years he played star engagements in tin- I'nited Stat.-s and Great Britain. "In 1851, he n_ed his residence per manently in Ibis city, and established Wallack's Theatre mow Wood's), ..n Broadway, at the comer oi Broome I street Here he enjoyed an uninter i rupted mi cess for many years. The es tabli hm. i.t was always distinguished by i uniform excellence of its stock com pany, and ;. careful regard to tbe pro prietiea ot scenery and costumes, which <_vive it eminence among American thea tres. In 18G1, thu present Wallack's Theatre, the hailing theatre ol the I imed States, was established at the ; cornet- of Thirteenth street and Broad was. •• Mr. Wallack was probably, up to the i time of his retiring from the stage, the 1 best of the old school of actors. liv was, perhaps, most admirable in what , might he termed the romantic drama, in such representations as 'Benedict' and '•Reuben (ih-nroy ' Although critics ■ might be disposed to question him in the highest works oi tragedy, in parts that merged upon the melodramatic, like 'Julten St. Pierre,' he was inapproach able in his time "Mr Wallack has suffered for some years of affections often incident to old ...* -. lie always dressed with the most ! fastidious taste, and had rather a Pari sian appeara ice.

He was a native of Washington, District ut Columbia,* Mid was a lieutenant of dragoons in the Florida war. The New- York Times says . "At the beginning of the war with Mexico he joined the forces under Gene* j ral Taylor, and assumed command of a squadron of his regiment.
