REVIVAL 0F THE SLAVE TRADE-NO. XV. i " The wear must be carried into Afric." The historical reminiscence just cited as to tli Yankees having Insisted upon a high tariff in former times, on the ground that the South had negroes to work for her, shows that enrq has nur tured the abolition sentiment of the North in a great degree. It is the key to a thousandcontra dictions of argument and conduct on the part of free soilers and emancipationists. One section of abolitionists profess to believe in negro equality and amalgamation, while another equally rabid faction contend for the exclusion of negroes from the free States. Still others have no definite idea on the subject of negroes, except a pretended de sire to see them free. But whatever may be the varied opinions of abolitionists, negro slavery ex ists substantially in miost of the free States. Such negroes as-they haie.thereare studiously etalded by public opinion from all occupations except gen orally those of house and body servants. This makes vagabonds of most adult negroes there, and Alls.the poor-houses with negro children. Hence a majority of negroes in the freo States are op preaticed by law, either as adult vagabonds, or as minor paupers, and they are treated to all intents as slaves.. As to those negroes who voluntarily serve as domesties, although nominally free, yet In order to keep their places and from the hopeless ness of getting redress by law, they very often submit to worse treatment than is Imposed upon Southern slaves even by hard masters. The negroes of the North are for the most part, rigged out by codish aristocracy in livery-brass buttons, red tape, and such like. They are em ployed as footmen, coachmen, out-riders, waiterm etc., are thrashed under apprentice laws, or by the ceuntenance of public opinion, whenever it suits the master. Theunderground rail road is freighted with pissengers many-a-time to supply servants In the free States, and what a-yell of rage the re elamation of a fugitive slave serving a Northern master occasions smong them. The abolition gen try, who are the chief slave owners at the North, live in constant dread of being deprived of Cuf fee's services, by the appearance of his true'mas ter from the South, to prevent which, said Cuffes, has to be spirited off to Canada, or elsewhere in the rUe States. But either event disposes of the abolition rascal's servant in- a hurry, after the los of whom, to be consistent, he must spout of the negro's wrongs. The abolitionists of course pay no wages-to their negro apprentices, and as public opinion excludts negroes from most profitable employments, such negroes as work voluntarily, must do so for nomi nal wages. Hence, negro labor is always cheaper than white labor in the free States, and hence also in part, the strong desire, which is everywhere manifested in Yankee land, to welcome free ne groes and oppose the execution of tLe fugitive slave law. Arkansas; by banishing her free no roes, has rendered the abolitionists an important favor. Missouri by agitating the same policy is likewise serving them a good turn, for which they will applaud her and as to the grand move now making in Marylend, to banish or sell into slavery her 100,000 free negroes, the whole abolition world of the North are exercised with fears that she will not do it. The truth is, that it Is the scarcity of negroes In the free States, which intensifies the abolition sentiment there, just as it is the scarcity of them in the South, making negro labor higher than white la~or, which is stimulating a similar feeling in our sections The 'growing abolitionisbt of the North-West Is strengthened mostly by the want of permanent negro domesties. All the negroes which the North Western States can get, must come from the South, as thtey never had any slaves to emancipate by Statute or Constitution, except the few which were taken to Indiana and Illinois, while they were Territories. At least twice as many were carried to Illinois, and one and a half~ times as miany to Indiana, as have been taken to Kansas. As some of the sterile New England States, with both a thin soil, bad climate and dense population, are able to keep darkies in livery, how much moro able to do so must he the North-Western States, with their'prolific soil, better climate and sparse population. I am aware that some of those States have laws excluding the Ingress of free negroes, but still there is a minority always powerful enough to) introduce even fugitives from the South, and give theme suit of livery any where in the towns of the North-West. In fact, the greatest want for negroes in flIls and Indiana between 1815-20, was house servants, and that want still exists. The subsistedece of a negro in that fruitful region Is comparatively noth ig, and the services of negrees as domestics are needed there throughout the year, as much as they arc at the South. Still It would pay to subsistne groes there even as laborers In grain and stock culture. Although the main seasons of~iaborin L. g groig are h asttie ye from the Northern boundary of Missouri Eastward, wilt throw nearly two-thirds of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio-about one-half of Pennsylvania and nearly all of New Jersey Boush of It. If slavery can thrive so well in Missouri, and all the hemp planters tell us it does, why could it not In those free States East of her in the same latitude ? If fugitive negroes. and apprentice negroes can wear liveries in Connecticut, or can prosper so well in Michigan and Massachusetts, as to marry beautil ful white heiresses, why could not a bona ide ne gro slave thrive there ? If stalwart negroes can be reared and profitably held to slavery in the cold mountains of Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, South Caro lina, Georgia and.Alabama, why cannot the same thing be done in the less severe climate of. many free States ? If slavery can flourish in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky and Missouri, why not In Kansas, whose entire area is In the same latitude as those States ? If the slave trade were now revived, slavery would be replanted In the North-Western States and in Kansas, despite the laws prohibiting It, prooisely as slavery disregarded the inhibition of the Ordinance of 1787, in the Territories of Indiana and Illinois. Many of the News-pagers in Southern Indiana and IBlinois, are at this tunme discussing the necessity of getting more steady and stable labor. Prom theirfirst set tlerment till now, a healthy feeling has existed in the South of both those States, favorable to the establishment of slavery there, if the negroes could only be commanded at prices below the value of white labor. In Illinois especially, a bitter sec tional feud prevails between the Southern and Northern parts of the State. The abolitionists of the Northern part which is inhabited - chiefly by Now Englanders, and later German importations style their section "Canaan," in a spirit of self righteousness, while they dub the Southern sec tion "Egypt," in reproach .for its African pro clivities. -- As remarked before, notwithstanding alillions of foreign emigrants have setted in the North-West. labor is still high and scaree there, because every -new-comer as early as possible buys himself a farm, and Instead of hiring himself out as a labor er, he enters the market to hire others to labor for him. This state of facts pro-supposes that there is a largoedemand in the North West for house ser -rants, as well as for farm laborers and that each farmer there would gladly 'pay the interest upon the moderate cost of at least two negroes and feed them for their labor. That eountry is only sparse ly populated and It has the capacity to sustain feels the necessity of possessing several millions of negroes as house servants, grain growers and stock tenders. Yet farmers there cannot afford to employ negro labor, when it is higher than white labor, because white labor can perform all the work required of common laborers In the North West-whereas only negroes can do the constant labor of cotton culture to any considerable extent. We have seen that negre labor was higher than white labor, when Indiaa and Illinois were ad mitted Into the Union, caused by the high price of cotton In 1815-20, with the slave trade closed. Therefore to assert that slavery cannote profitably exist in Indiana and Illinois is simp-ly to say, that it cannot profitably exist there when negro labor is higher than white labor. Even If slavery had been established in those two States during their Territorial existence, It would have been abolished1 ere now, or nearly so, as has been done in other once slave States, on account of the great rises in the price ef cotton in 1825, in 1835-7, in 1850 and since that time, making negro labor more valuable than white labor at all those periods. So like -wise to say that slavery cannot exist in Kansas Is only to declare that it cannot be established, or maintained there, while negro isbor is dearer than -white labor, which has been the fact almost aveo1 mince Kansas came on the tapis. Hence the standar-d price of negroes, requisite\ for the permanent establishment of slavery in the North West while the slave trade remains closed is, that negro labor must be more valuable than -white labor, even to do work which white labor ea perform and that too when there Is an unlimi ted supply of white labor. But if negro labor gould be obtained always at, say 50 per cent less gust thtan white labor, who doubts but that slavery I would then be establiseed there, in face of ther kca above cited, ad the analogies drawn to sup. port those facts. Males do well in the North West and why not negroes, as the ass and negro both d.Jlnally came from the regions about the Equa -teor. I will advance another proposition, whose 1 gorrectness, or incorrectness I am willing to leave to the decisi'on of those who have had practical observ ation of the negro's capacity to endure t sold. With the same clothing, food, shelter and a Lie a negro can bear well nigh as much cold and dolasmauch work as awhte man. Let the matter he doeermined by the overseers and I do not-fear ~ lhe result of their vote upon it. Whoever beheld likelIer negroes than come from the uoonataiue of C the Southern Stats every timeonegro labor is made - mnore valuable than white labor by a great rise in etton ?

Sometimes the shap who drove your carriage a few years ago gets rich by a lucky speculation and then marries your daughter or snubs you foir your poverty. All is change, change like the qluick sands of a shifting, swolen stream. Nothing is in repose. Nothing stable. A Southern man habituated to the quietness and steadiness of sluve society is rendered miserable by the excitements and shift ing phrses of life in hireling society. The best conception I can embody of the agitations, rest Lessness, changes and annoyances of hireling socie ty is the hiring of nejroes'at the South. When one hires a negro here, he generally does it for a year and he can compel the negro to serve him that long. He has perhaps first to unlearn the negro some of his vices, or habits and then it may be to teach, or train him anew. At the end of the year, he gets another negro, with whom he has the some task to perform, or perhaps the no gro runs away-his maiter sustains him in It and the man who hired him, has to labor for himself or have no labor done and so all his plans are de ranged. Even this Is only a faint picture of the vexatious changes and course of things In hireling society. Now If hiring negroes at the South cre ates so much trouble, disorder and change, what but a sort of Babel could be expected in a so-called free community, where laborers are free to do as they please and employers free to dismiss them at pleasure?

Farmer & Planter. Tho May number is received, and is well sup) plied with good original anti seleted articles. As we happen to be the "Yos from Edgefield" upon whom the aeditor ponnees with such elva; it will not be amiss to use our own columns for a very brief reply. That brilliant allusion to the case of strabismnus strikes us as being in badl taste un ier the circea stances. It is lby many considered indicative of some unfortunate lack of the milk of human kizid ness, to see one reminding another unnecessarily of personal defects for which he is in no wise re sponsible. But besides this, the allusion is point. less. -We were not itd tplxe'd by thaean ilaversloslof the term Bfill-Side. But when a term is once ostablishedingeneral use, andis both correct and euphonious, we do not recognixe the right of any one to change It at his pleasure,-ne', not even though ho be so imposing a personage as the " Great Unknown" editor of a country farm-jour naL. Our concern was, to have the terms of the agrisultural business, like those of every other vocation, definitely fixed,--not one thing in the farmer's mouth, and another thing on the agricul tural writer's pen. The eter editor is much mis taken, if he supposes that his every reader has not the sense to comprehend the importance of this proposition, and to estimate his violations or it accordingly. We, knowing this, desired to give kim a caution for his good ; but, in the pride- of his orthography, he makes a feeble attemptio turn our hint into ridicule, instead, of wisely pro. fiting thereby. But again, the " voice'' is uncertain and incom prehensible ! Let us see how this is: 1st. We suggested that his plan of leaving all hill-sides " uncleared" (not enclosed, as The far suer asad Planter makes us say) would work badlly in the more hilly sections of country ; and Fair Bald District was instanced in this counectiaon. Any thing incomprehensible about that ? We mow say, at the risk of being again thought in :owprehensible, that we believe Fairfield has puar sued the correct plan in clearing her fertile hill sides and drawing from them the cotton-bags which have had so much to do in making her one f the wealthiest and most intelligent Districts of ;he State. It is to be regretted, if, in doing this, hose hill-sides have been seamed with ugly guI ies. But it is useless to grieve over spilt milk. Better even so, than that the tens of thousands of ottondbales she has derived from those hill-sides hould not have been produced. Let her people sow go to work (as they doubtless are doing) and ,y deep culture, liberal manuring, and hill-side Litching, cause their exhausted lands to recuper ute; ail Fairfield will again blossom as the rose. n all this, where Is the incumprehenslbility of he "Yomcs ?" 2ndly. We asserted that hill-side ditching had >een generally successful in our own District. We had heard the opinions of various planters on he subject, and we wrote as we were informed. We had also seen with our own eyes the success ul working of the system, which enabled us to ive the opinions of others with greater confidence. L'he star editor professed in his first article to seek 'ether men's experience in this vexed matter." Ve responded to his request in the plainest kind if English, and he turns upon us and pronounces >ur "voice" incomprehensible. Is ho dissatisfied >eeanse our testimony in favor of the system was nere assertion ? So wa, hi. testimony aIgalinSt it. I~e do not admit that the star editor's assertions bre of more authority than our own; and we al neat know they are not worth as much as the >pinions of certain intelligent farmers whoso views re had purposely aseertainued on this reata gue. in. The " voice from Edlgeileld," then, Is incow rehensible, forsooth i simply because it dlares to hallenge the naked and unsupported assertions of he Paraar & Planter.

Several statements, bearing upon the pending European difficulties, will be observed in our pres ent impression. Thus far it would seem that the " war is inevitable." Mr. Jons MITCIaL of the Southern Citizen said on Saturday last: " Europe is at this moment" (about noon we suppose) " wrapped in smoke and dame, shaking under the multitudinous tramp of hosts, and dinted by the bloody hoofs of charging squadrons." And see ing that Mr. MITURL is 'rom across the polo phlo~seoio Atlantic, we put it down as reasonably sure that such (or something like It) is'the fact. The samie authority takes a brief but Interesting view of thu probable gathering of the hostitudi, nous armies; on the one sid, " Croats, Tyrolese, Bohemians, Galicians, 'Germans and Hungarians, -Selaves, Celts and Touton,-splendidly equip ped and disciplined, poor devils ! and formed into a mighty slaughtering-machine,"-on the other, "forty thousand Sardinian regular troops and 20,000 volunteers" already in position, while "the passes of the Graian and Maratime Alps are pour ing in, by tens of thousands every day, the dash. ing regiments of Napoleon ;-with Polissier, Mac. Mahon, Neil and Canrobert, sweeping down cav. alry, infantry and artillery, Zouaves and Chas. sours de Vincennes, upon the destined - field." There also are the swift steamships hastening from Toulon and Algeria with reinforceaments after re inforcements to concentrate upon the field of op erations via Genoa and Spezzia. In short, Jont Mivaez. talks of the matter precisely as a man would, if the Washington Monumenthad attained such an altitude and he were on the top of it with such a pair of lungs and such a telescope as would enable him, existing, to behold for himself all this mighty marshalling of the votaries of Mars. Of course Mr. MrreIIr. ought to know what he says, and doubtless does know,-henee our reference to his opinIons and conclusions in the matter. We take him as authority par e~rellence. See then further:o'sre what lhe inilites in regard to the per feet ihnuiliarity 'with whic~h the contending liarties in this great strife can review their respetive po sitions and arrange for each mscding de.volop mient in the mighty draipa of blood they are hur rying to enact : " Consider, further, that the whole scene of this warfare has been for five hundred years thorough ly known and surveyed for fighting purposes: uvery river and every bridge and ford, every hill1 and the height thereof, every roal, ravine, fort and field, all have been over again mapped and measured, the scene of memorable battles or mar ches, sieges, ambuscades, or outfiankings. It has been the diagram on which military men have ktdied tactics and -strategy, for mtany gin age-. .essionall: irao'tisng' anadlayig matches, to add, as it were, new illustrations--to heap line upon line and precept upon precept--until now the field of action and all iS capabilities are as plain as a chess-board." This chess-board, it appears, is about half as large as South Carolina and lies along the little river Ticino which separates Lombardy fronm Sar dinca. ( Yide Map of Europe.) On this arena three hundred thousand soldiers are now, accor ding to the Citizen, face to face, and probably in deadly conflict;-or perhaps we should say, that paper supposed them to be so on Saturday last, And if so, who knoiws how much blood may be spilt by this time ! how many warriors have gone to their rest ! how many Jeannettes have lost their Jeannots ! how many captains have become colo nels ! how many colonels, generals ! how many generals, field marshals! What magnifacent space for curious conjetures and diversified conceits ! But following on the current of thu Ciien.'s war article, we come to his notice of England In that connection ; and here we quote two paragraphs in toto : England, If she has no army fit to take part in the Europe.tu struggle, has at least sage advice t'. prve-for thme sake of peace (you undierstand,) haumanity, civilirzation and all that: and her advice being very contumelmously rejected by Austria, and never once aked by France or Sardinia, she cans at all event, maake a show of activity by bun dling off her fleet to the Mediterraiiean, though with what purpose it is hard to see, for the English government would as soon presume to send the London police to occupy Paris, as land a man or bloekade a port In the Mediterranean, or in any the minutei'z particular interfere with the move ments of the belligerents or any of them by ea or land. It is however considered, we believe, an imposing sight to see her ships sailiog about: it is expected to produce a fine moral effect upon sth a tumultuous Europe. So Diogenes, the philoso pher, when he saw ali Corinth in comnmotion pre paring for the enemy, began to roll his tub with great violence up and down the street-that he also mIght be doing somewhat. England's tubs are rolling now up and down the Mediterranean. It is needless to say that 'England will evade any treaty, and resort to any mean shift (but with the finest moral and christian sentiment in her mouth all the while) In order to preserve a position of strict neutrality :-and that If she dares to fight at all it must necessarily be on the side of Franee. Should she do otherwise, a French General and his Et Xtujor will soon occupy Bluckingham Palace, and ireland Is up from the Giants' Canse. way to Cape Clear. Well put and splelly written ;-but we quote .the passage "in order to protest against It," It Is natural enough In an Irish patriot to taunt old England with her prsent dIsinclination to war. But a Southern' patriot must be excused for seeIng in this peace policy of hers cause of congratulation Cud comfort. A thinker of the ,thawmrock school may derive joy from her anticipated implication in the perils o~f a most harzardous war ; But to one wrho hau any penchant for the beauties of the cotton plant, that event must surely present some Intense ly unplesant reflections. Path riek may liagh In moore at England's " tubs rolling up and down the htediterranean ;" But Brother Jonmathan, (or at least that part of him South of Mason A Din's line) has better reason to pray that every English inb ..f them all may continue to stand on Its own bottom. One who has learned his wisdom from tn Emnmet, may look with rapture to the prospect f England's downfall; But he who has been aught of MfcDnjie and Caihoaun, can but regard mnch a catastrophe, as the world now stands, of all hings moat adverse to the wealth and well-being f our section. Independent though of all prudential considera ,ios, we are in America, chiefly, the descendants ,f English ancestors, and draw from that pare. ;age some of the highest elements of our sucess as i people. England and America are, moreover, he grand bulwarks of Protestantism o'n earth. So omes it, that they cannot sunder wIthout a dia tonoring of natural affinities and a falling off from heir duty to High Heaven. So comes it, Ireland o the contrary notwithstanding, that they must ted will be friends and allies for all tinis. Give Credit.

The hall in which it was held, was crowded on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thur. day evenings. Every thing was there to at. tract the eye and piease the palate. Not a single circumstance occurred, that .we are aware of, to disturb the pleasure of the occa ajon, while it was positively refreshing to 1rit niess the liberality manifested by all elsases and denominations of our citizens to aid in the success of' so good a cause. The lottery1 which was drawn in the last evening, was ani entirly new f'eature on the managemhent oft' visitors. The first prize was a splendid Melo deon, in piano case, which cost $150 ; the second, one of Wheeler & Wilson's finest Sewing Machines, which cost $125; and the third a Music-box, playing eight different airs, which cost $00. There were four hundred1 prizes, ranging from one, to one hundred ar~d I lifty dollars. The tickets were sold at* $2,50, all of which were readily taken.

First dedurse must come the Queen of Beauty lad of Love, Miss SALL: Buanuouats, chosen by r. A.rnarn WALLACH, the successful Knight in the Tournament which took place in the morning, and declared by universal suffrage, worthy of the nor. She appeared so lovely in her light tuille bes and flowery crown, and bore her royal dig pity with so much sweetness and modesty, that I in sure no Knight could wish to break a lance in honor of a fairer sovereign-and of thi# same Knight let me now make mention. Ho has donned, wifth the armor, the title of Don Quixote, and fol ed by the faithful, proverbial Sancho Pana, ws all eyes, by his successful imitation of him of the doleful countenance; 6n like him also, he blghtens up at the approach of the Lady of his eloias, and both seem more intent on enjoying the gay reality than Inventing imaginary evils-for his costume I refer you to Cervantes, who describes it 16oh better than I can, only assuring you that it PA perfect in all its details. ffle Empress Eugenie was personated by Miss cL. of Chester, and I defy the Court of France to produce more dignity and grace. The dress of brocade with a magnificent over dress and train of hite moire-antique with a gold edge, would not have been unfit for the Empress herself; and I doubt much, if even #he would have borne it with more ease. From my position in the gallery, I had a distingt view, and having se'n clearly and im partially, of course feel entitled to judge; but to oscribe minutely every costumaeI confess my ina buity. Another most dignified lady, in the style of the court of Louis XIV, with powdered hair, velvet bodice and train, high heels and Immense hoops, powder and patches, was Miss Kate 0., of golumbis,-and the Norma, most artistic in her hoopless Rowing robes and broad gold bands and aliaplet, and Rebecca of Ivanhoe; the former Miss Si, of Columbia, and the latter Miss F. of New bry, both equal In taste and interest; but more striking than either, was Helen McGregor, ansi If aiy doubt the beauty of the costume, they may pply to any of the spectators, who will make con 1imation doubly strong, and In addition sing loud ises of the most perfect foot and ancle displayed *the room;-Mrs. L. 0., was the lady last men tioted. Miss St also, of this place, fairy-like in Jerion and character, with gauze dress and wings, a At 'epresentative of Titania, the Fairy Queen. Miss P. of Charleston was a most piquante fille dai Regiment, beat an occasional tatoo and looked inostbewitchingly Independent. As Night,withher croseent and stars, attracting all eyes by her bright and starry orbs, came Mis G., more than ever a beie by name and nature. Spanish ladies, Peas ants from every clime, fower girls more lovely than the buds they carried, the White Lady, Morning, Evening and Twilight-the Maid of the Mist, Persians, and In fact every costume fancy could devise or taste execute, Alled the rooms; but as much space as I have plready devoted to those tair ladies, I can not close without a few words to Miss G., whose lively animated action and em bodiment of a Uypsey, drew around her a contin ual crowd, who were repaid by fortunes told with cards and silver, after the most approved style. And now, a word .of thao other sex, whose corn Jamnes were as tasteful and perhaps eveni richer than the ladies. My attention was particularly at tracted to Col. S., who not only looked, hut fully carried out the character of Columbus. I confess to being so struck by the immense rufile around his neck, as to have paid but slight notice to the rest of his attire. ..Mr. W. H. Jr., as Saladin, was perfect. On dit ais a veritabie Eastern dress, and I see no'reason doubt It, for it looked the genuine article. The ustle Romeo was there too, and It needed very Ildiscrimination to see he had found his Juliet; Fhope- no'-B~al 'iiniw and known too late." The Knights were all gorgeous ly attired, but It was like trying to flx the figures in a Kaleidoscope, to remember all their characters and costumes, And I dare not atttempt lest I fall, only trusting some other pen may do them justice. A Mexican. stood out in full bandit style, and seemed quite a favorite among the fair, for in spite of his dagger and pietola., I noticed he generally carried the irettiest ladies on his arm. A right handsome coupled were a lovely shepherdess and shepherd; to judge from appearances one would imagine they were satisfied to tend sheep, or under take any occupation, so long as it was together. Now fill up the remainder with Knights, Soldiers, Sailors, Peasants, the ceild Prophet, and the leet Rose of Summer, a music grinder, Highlanders, Pages, and, as with the ladies, every thing that could please the most fastidious taste, andyou will have a faint Idea of the Fancy Ball, given at the Atheneum Hall, on Wednesday the 4th of May. I am sure it will form an epoch in many lives; many hearts have thrilled responsive, many hands have lingered in their pressure, eyes have looked love to eyes that spake again, and all have separa ted, hoping to meet soon,' unable to imagine any newe pleasure mere enchanting than this last.

' She left Liver ,ool several hours before the Adelaide sailed ron Galway. The details of the news brought by this ar ival are interesting. London papers of the 30.h April are divided in their opinions re rarding the crossing of the Ticino; but the Tiames reiteratesit former tatement, saying Lhat the advanced post of.the Austrian army bad crossed that river on the 26th, and had tiken position in the enemy's territory. The main army crossed on the 29th. Austria appears determined to strike a blow before the French reach the field of hostili ties. The Post says that there was some proba bility of mediation, as-Napoleon was serious ly considering England's proposition to that effect. Alluding to the treaty between France and Russia, the Times says -that if these powers attack Austria on German soil, it behooves Englana to consider whether it is better to defend herself on the contiient or at her own homestead, as the existence of the great Ger manic powers are necessary to her safety. - Every precaution has been taken to prevent the Austrianas from reaching Turin The ountry was overflowed, and the roads ren dered impracticable: The report that Tuscany had joined the al lies is confirmed; her army consists of fifteen thousand nien. The Aglish channel fleet has been ordered to return from the lediteranean. - It is stated that Russia and Fiance have been procuring* large supplies of charts and surveys of the English coasts and the Medi teranean stations. It is surmised that Spain will join the al lies, as she is considerably augmenting her na val force with new ships and gunboats, and has ordered large numbers of English charts. The French army of the Alps have met with serious obstructions at Mount Cenis. Four thousand men are employed in clearing the roads of snow. France was taken by surprise at the rapid ity of the movements of the Austrians. Frince thought that the war would be com menced leisurely ; and her troops are arriving at Genoa.badly provided for an immediate campaign. The Emperor has received intelligence of an outbreak in Algeria, which will probably require a return of the troops lately sent to Italy. A system of police, similar to that of Na poleon I., is about to be instituted in Paris. Over fifty stock brokers have failed in London, in consequence of the panic. A very important and large operator in the Liverpool Exchange, named Roberts, has been declared a defaulter to the amount of between three and five thousand pounds ster ling. Consequences of the European War on 'American Interests. The papers are discussing the effects of a European conflict at arms on the three great interests of the Union-the Shippig, Farm ing, and Cotton planting interests. That the two former will benefit materially from a protracted European war by a luger partici pation in the carrying trade and the increas ed demand for grain and provisions, while the injury to the cotton planting interests will be comparatively less than at other periods when the pressure of the supply against the demand for cotton was greater, can be readily con ceived. But in taking a comprehensive view of the question there can be no doubt as to the solution, whether wars that stimulate the industry of particular branches of production and lines of business are not moure injurious than beneficial even to the interests which ate promoted by the change. A war of limited extent or temporary dura tion can lead to no worse result than a partial disturbance, but one of general or indefinite prolongation produces a derangement, the recovery from which costs much more than the profit derived from it. All interests and all financial arrangements are assimilated to a peace that has been general and permanent. They cannot be accommodated to an opposite condition without extensive dislocation. T1he level of money is seriously disturbed, which is in itself a great evil. Tryig takes..circui tons channels 'that maki new eniterprises necessary, enhances prices, limits markets, and defeats mercantile calculations. When recovery takes place to the normal state of things, as it must, the previous gains afford no adequate compensation for the subsequeunt losses. The change involves not only pecuni ary but moral transitions, which greatly im pede the general and healthy progress of wealth and industrial purauits.--Charleston Evening News. pm The Legislature of California have appro priated $1,000 per annum to the Washington Monument, at'Washington City. -OBITU.A.RY.

She cannot uomo to you, hut you can go to her. She was only sick one week, and although in Iat agony, no complaint was heard to escape her *pa. She desired some of the dear female iriends writh her, to sing that beautiful hymn, 0 ! how happy are they who their Saviour obey, and have laid up their treasure 'above," and attempted to sing it herself, but could only epeat the words.
