Mr. Russell's Letters.
Mr. Editor: It is Very much to be regret
ted that thero is so niuoh in Mr. RUSSELL'S
letters calculated to mislead others respecting
us nt tho South, and roally to produce (wo
four) mischievous consequences towards us at
tho North, and in Europe-especially in Eng
land. Even among our own sister States of
our dear Southern -Confederacy a wrong im
pression may bc produced of thc sentiments
of our people in South Carolina. It is to bo
regretted, (ns. we have said above,) booti uso
those letters will bo read everywhere, aiid very
H^ch relied on at tho North abd du' Euglanl.
?jfttd also, because Mr. RUSSELL is a gen tie
in un, who is thought, by all parties, to bo an
?unprejudioial and liberal observer of every
.event, and of nil people and parties in these
?perilous times ; and respecting the difficult
points at stake between the contending por
tions of .the country. Vor instance, in letter
thc 7th, (wo think it is,) ho says to this effect
-that there is but ono voice in South Caro
lina, and that is: " that if wc could accom
plish it we would have otic of tho Royal Fam
ily of England to teign over ns," although
(ho says) it is out of our power to accomplish
it. Wo do not believe that these are thc sen
tintents of thc people of this State; and this
?tn tomen t is ca len lu ted to do us ti great deal
of mischief at thc South, as well as at the
North', especially coupled with thc assertion
of ft thc very aristocratie ideas prevalent
amongst us." Rut it is oven warne still; when
ho speaks of " tho oruel and deadly hate that
Southerners have, und always hnvc had, for
the Yankees, the meun und despicable light
in whioh they arc viewed at thc Some. Also,
*f that years ugo thc intention wns deliberately
formed boro to withdraw from the Union ut
thc very first opportunity." Also, " that ox
tronni Southern men ure now becoming moro
moderato, mid wherens thc wish ?ind intention
wns, at first, to attack Washington City, they
now say thnt .it is not of importance to do so."
Now it. is possible that 80IU0 (perhaps many)
of . our leading mon may hnvo said, thut,
*\ rather than form again aug union with tho.
Yankees, they would become a part of. tho
British Government. Although such nu iden
might (if believed) produce nu unfavorable
impression towards us in.England, yet it would
produce un equally unfavorable impression of
us nt tho North, and oven nmon^st our sister
States of thc South. Noithcr arc wc so "very
aristocratic in our opinions and habits" ns he
represents us to bc. And vjVfdo not believe
rthnt, oven now, " thcro is in South Curoliun
Ji deadly, cruel, blood thirsty luitc towards tho
\Yunkec8, causing the universal cry of her sons
?to como uj) .towards tho Northern people of
?/via victis." So far from this, there was n
{general fooling amongst us that wo only dc-?
?sired n peaceful separation, and disbelieving,
?to .thc very 'last, that tito Northern States
would really join in a war against their South
er II brethren. A very plain proof of this is,
?thc.published coniininunioations between our
'Commissioners at Washington, mi l President
BUCHANAN-; and also tho offerts our Com
missioners with the prosont Administration,
for peuce. Also, tho ropoatcd protestations
-of Guv. PICKEN*, and the Govomors of other
.Stntofl, .nud.of. President ?Uvis, <. that all
that wo desi rod, wns n.pcncoful and honorable
separation." Also, our refraining from on
' Wring , Fort .Sumter, or committing any other
"overt net" for fear of prccipitnting a oivil
war "with our Northern Brethren.*' Nb!
the fact it, thut the Government at Washing
ton has itself boon drawn gradually into this
war, fearing to oom promise its popularity, with
tho' Republionn party, (for tho first tim? in
ipowcr,) and also under tho mistnkon idoa that
(thcro-wore ninny in favor of Union in tho.so
coding Staten, who would como out openly if
?tho tyovornmooli would make a show of force.
Jt han no,W (Jot itself into a war,, and. cannot'
withdraw until the Republionn party itself
\au(horitcB tliehi to do so. :
In ? farmer letter of Mr. RUBS?XT/8, ho
?dosoi'ibea tho fino robust nppoarancos of tho
mon in Charleston, and says they themselves
Very obviously contradict what-te enid by tito
\:'Wh '"
Carolinians' as a reason for slavo labor-:iiauic
ly : Mint thc white man cannot flourish at thc
South. Tills is simply a traveller's mistake
thc error of ono who stays but a short time in
thc city or country through which ho passes.
For while tho nativo of Charleston itself can
live and flourish' in tho city, bc cannot at all
live (in thc summer and autumn) on any of
thc beautiful farms immediately around tho
suburbs of thc city-not more than two or
three miles off; and it is certain death to
sleep for ono singlo night on a low country
plantation during thc wann weather For
those in Europe who arc inclined to favor us,
to think that slavo labor is really not needed
on thc Southern plantations, and might easily
bo supplied by tho labor of the white man,
will cause them to. alter their opinion of the
justice of our cause. Wc do not suppose that
this will ever be seen by Mr. H?SSKL1., or by
any of those elsewhere who have read his let
ters-the evil (wo fear) cannot bo remedied.
Eut wo do think that no ono would regret in
juring our causo inore than Mr. RusSKLh
himself, who is evidently a liberal and upright
gentleman, and who bas, doubtless, striven to
be strictly truthful and impartial in his ac- I
counts. His mistakes are- thoso almost im
possible to bp avoided by any man making so ,
short a stay in thc places visited. He is right, I
however, in thinking that at thc South (es- ?
pccinlly in South Carolina) there is, and al
ways has been, a very wann attachment to our I
old mother country, and a feeling of pride ,
that wc aro descended from the great and j
noble country of Croat Britain.

Moro Foreign Views.
We have given extracts from sonic of thc
European journals. We subjoin a few oth
ers. All take tho sensible position that the
subjugation of thc South is impossible, itlid
many of thom inveigh bitterly against Lin
coln for inaugurating war, which, wdiile it is
calculated to interfere materially with the
great commercial interests of the world, is
alike cruel, unchristian, and bound to bo in
I ^ very nature of things prolific of evil and
barren of good. The Landon Nco no mist of J
the 25th ult. says: " Neither party, there
fore, can subdue or re-einbraec the other
probably by no means; certainly not by fight
ing. Hut each may inflict upon its antago
nist such fearful injury and suffering ap will
leave a legacy of undying hatred to their
children and their children's children.''
After stating that victory even to the North
" would bring no success worth achieving,"
tho Economist sensibly observes : " Why
should tho federal Government fight to pre
vent the slavo States doing that which they
will do just as certainly after defeat or after
victory as before thc battlo ?-nay, which is
already done, and Which not the most san
guine abolitionist believes cnn bo undone ?"
Tho London Tablet, thc conservative Cath
olic organ, of thc same date, says :
u Hundreds and thousands of Northerners
arc Hying to anns in order to compel their
Southern brethren to livo with them on terms
of perfect, equality, brotherly love," and indi
visible union. The prospect of war between
tho Northern and Southern States is the
most horrible that can be imagined. Ten
millions of men, occupying an immense ter
ritory, and fighting foi' their freedom, are
not to bo reduced to subjection by annies of
invaders, who will be withdrawn from im
mense territories^ in w.bicb they were protita
bly employed, tu do the unprofitable work of
slaughter and destruction in lauds which they
will bo unable to retain.
" When tho news first reached Europe
that tho election to thc Presidency id' Mr.
Abraham Lincoln bad been bailed by South
Carolina as a sufficient cause for seceding
from the Union at tho risk of civil war, our
first hasty judgment inclined in favor of the
North, though our sympathies were with thc
South. Hut as further information came,
and as we found leisure tOVOtrrtOO tho history
of the United States, and tho conflicts be
tween North and South, which have been
carried on for so many years, wc found that
tho election of Mr. Abraham Lincoln, so far
from being tho cause of secession, was only
i?udo thc occasion for putting into practice a
resolution long formed ou other valid
Lc Monde, a Paris journal, says :
r What attitudo will our commercial or
diplomatic relations assume towards tho bel
ligerent parties ? England bas alroady deci
ded that she will maintain o uoutrei position,
and consider tho war ns oue between two
sovereign powers. In Franco it lins boon
nskod whether the Southern Stutes wore not
rebels ? It is difficult to ndmit this intcrpro
talion, When wo reflect that tho United States
fornis n federation. Sovereignty bolongs to
ouch State. The Union is a contract, n treaty;
mid when violated, either with or .without
cause, it is und Can be only a violation of the
'agreement entered into. It is not a rebellion;
it is a war bbtweon sovereign Styles."
Tho question in relation to letters of
marque issued by tho President of tho South
ern Confedoraoy is thus settled :
"President Lincoln lins promised to hang
tho corsairs of Prcsidont Davis. This is
simply nolis?nso* If tho corsairs of tho
South aro treated as pirates, tho pvlsonors of
War from tho North may bo-regarded ns
brigands),and shot.. Hut wc boliovo that tho
laws of nations will bo bettor observed by
both sides."

Correspondence of the Mercury.
CAMI? PICKEN?, Juno 25. j
Aguin I write with little to communicate.
It might bo interesting to your readers to !
know what brigades have been formed j where
they have been stationed ; what is the force
of each; how they sustain each other; and
what are the works with which each outpost
is protected. Pul as weare face to face with
a cunning adversary, as otu- outposts abliest
intersect, und as our adversary, however un- '
willing to meet us in the open field, is not
above taking nd van tugo of any opportunity
that may turu up, and might possibly look
into the war correspondence of tho Mercury |
for the information that may lead to it, I still i
think it best to bo no moro specific than 1
have boen, and will await until tho nccotn
plishtnont of facts shall authorize u tull dis- I
closure of thc means by which they came
Still, however, I may say tho work goes
bravely on. Still other troops arrive, and
among them the admirable Fourth ?South Car- ,
ulina P ?giment. under Col.. Sloan. This came
in nt ten o'clock on Sunday morning, nod j
Was received with lively demonstrations of
rejoicing. Ono would think that muong so
many tirriyuls, there would cense to bo do- j
monst ratio ns of interest, and there is less, '
perhaps, than there used to bo ; but the j
coming of our regiments is looked to with
solicitude. Our troops have exhibited thc
spirit to meet thc enemy. There is thc feel
ing that, in some sort, they have seen service ;
and so, when the Fourth Regiment caine in,
though there were no Carolinians on the
ground to greet thom, tho greeting was so
general from others t li ti t there was scarcely
room to feel tho want of more. This regi
ment, it is understood, will be in the brigade
in command of Col. Farly, of this State, und
will also bc in advance of this position.
Thc dislauco between our lines daily be
comes shorter, and there is now a space of
only about six or eight miles upon which tho
great military game is to be played out.
Since moving upon Fall's Church, with 5000
mon, thc enemy has suspended action. The
move is now with us ; mid, ns we close upon
! liim, tho assurance is perfect that it will be a
light or a foot rnco with him before long.
There, is still no further movement in the
Ilnrper's Ferry department. The Northern
papers say that d'en. Cndwalhidor will recross
the Potomac f.t Willinmspnrt, und give battle
to Cen. Johnson, or rallier will drive him
from tho field. They seem not to calcu
late on fighting. To drive their opponents
before them is their object, and they seem to
take it in bad tcmpor if wo aro not driven
when they say we ought to be. Of the re
crossing of the Potomac by Con. (hidwalla
der, however, we have heard nothing yet.
Persons nt Winchester day before yesterday,
say thcro was no indication of it, and ns Con.
Mc.Clcllnnd's column (I call it ("lon. Mc
Clellnnd's column for tho renson that bc is in
.supreme command of that department, al
though I am not sure be. bas yet come person
ally itdo thc State) has not yet moved for
ward, and would seem to be sufficiently on
gnged with the irregular forces around it,
thcro is no reason to believe thnt wo are to
have much just at present to disturb us in
that quarter.
Tt will bo seen from what I have said, that
there are no indication of u collision within a
few days at least, and as there aro other move
ments in tho West of much importance to
Virginia, nt lenst, I sin.ll nvail myself of tho
opportunity of approaching that theatre of
action. Virginia, ns I hnvc had occasion to
say before, is in a civil na well as n foreign
war. You will have seen that the Conven
tion nt Wheeling has declared tho Northwest
independent, and one of ibo objects of Mc
Clfllhtnd's force is to make this declaration
good. To make hoad against these political
and military movements, dov. Floyd in the
Southwest, dov. Wise in the Kanawhn val
ley, and Col. Carnet in thc NoYthvrcst, aro
encl', raising n force, which togullmi they think
will bc sufficient to tho enemy in tho field,
wjiile they.severally will exert their great, po
litical power in harmonizing publie feeling
in thc course adopted by the Slate. Those
arc gentlemen eminently competent to tho
task, and as thc interests tit stake to Virginia,
nt least, nie very great, und nre great in fact
to tho whole South, I shall, at least,' run
down in tho direction of Staunton, and thcro
gather what 1 can, until advised by telegraph
that it is again important to bc with thc Army
of the Potomac. Iii W. S.

A TouciiiNti SCENE.-When thc Cotton
touched ut Bruly Landing, to take on board
tho tirraillcurs, an old negro woman in tho
crowd wns observed to bo much excited, und
with almost frantic pleadings begged to go on
board tho boat. A bystander asked her tho
renson for such strange behavior. She replied
that her young master was going to bo killed
in tho War, and that as sho had nursed him
in infancy, ?ho wished to go ind attend upon
him wherever ho wont. We confess our eyes
felt moist at witnessing such an exhibition of
feeling.from n "poor, down trodden slave,"
to liberate .whom tho North linc waged ni/
unholy war upon us for years. Sho was not
