The Wcpro Uaxler lankce Kule. - The London Index in rrf rolling to the candid speech made lately bv Wendell Phillips, rcpiarks: ' The negro has nothing to expect from Nort h, cm conquerors but a slavery infinitely harder than anything that exists in Cuba or did exist in y i * .* > .i i? i A Jamaica, wnerev-er tnc vanuec lias conic the nogro lias perished. ^Ic lias been torn from the homp where he was' well clothed and well lodged, abundantly fed and careful I yc provided.- He has been sold at a few dollars a" Jiewd to Yankee speculators, who have worked him to. death in a few wceksjM he has been doomed to prow.l about tlie purlieus of the camp, living on foul offal and dying ofstrnge diseases; and, in his helpless misery, he has vainly implored his captors to rid him of this liberty , ?liberty to starve and suffer?and restore him to the master whom he loved, and wlio eared and provided for him. Since this war broke out thq yankecs may have captured some 200,000 negroes. Wc have reason to believe that ono half of these are dead. In the worst days of the fjiavc trade, slaves were never trtmlcd so ill and never died half so fast as under the protection of Northern Abolitionists. Well may j Mr. Phillips says that if he wore a negro, "he j would dread every victory on the part of the North." It, is not by Northern victories that, in his opinion, the slaves are to he delivered. The war is to set them free by a slower, surer, and more terrible process, "it is performing exactly the woik which war did in South America; it is taking the rivets out of society; it is crumbling up the whole social unci civil life into its ; original elements, and when that work is com- i plctely done, no maltcrwhat the form of (lov-' ernment he that comes on; the negro is always free, it is to the dissolution of society, not to the reconstruction of the Union, that Abolitionists are bidden to look for the accomplishment of their darling object. u The States arc to sink into the condition of Mexico or Nicaragua, to lie tlie prey of con- j tinuai anarchy and chronic civil war, to be without order,, without government, without the security for life and property, in order that out of this chaos may arise the independence of the negro. Such is the prospect to which Mr. Wendell Phillips deliberately directs the hopes of his friends : he deprecates peace, ho oven deprecates victory, least they should avert .that total, all subverting ruin by which tho slaves is tabe set free. I^orish the Union, so , that the negro bo emancipated: extejrminate tho Southern people, level their cities to the ground, rayage their lands, closo up their ports, make,of their country a:howling wilderness, in ordor to?provide a fit home for four millions pf frecdmeo. What matter if for this end we sacrifice everything that has..made Americans proud of their country and has attracted to her shores the poor ftnd the discontented from all quarters of the world?liberty, wealth, security for life and property everything that makes a hation great And happy ? All this is a lesser evil than to acknowledge the inrlonniw"! - C fw" "v,,vvy Vl the South?a trifling price to pay for the- Anal abolition of negro jftavcry. *. So speaks Mr. Wendall Phillips in his character of uncompromising Abolitionist. A financial rumor was the on dit jesterdav. ^ It was said that the distinguished gentleman wh&'lias recently been elevated to the Sccratary- ! ship of the Confederate Treasury, ttith his co- J adjutors, has a grand scheme on foot for the purchase of all the Government, cotton and tobacdb in the Confederate Stales, throwing upon the market as its equivalent upwards of eight million pbuads -sterhnrr nr forty million# in gold.

The Columbus 2'inus, of July 21, gives the annexed account of the Yankee raid into Alabama : ' The raid was commanded by Uossoau, and was composed of about 2,f>00 picked men, elegantly mounted and equipped. They came through Dadevillo from the direction of Talladega, where th^y burned only the public property belonging to the (Jovcrninent. Humors are conflicting, whether they burned t he factory and Government works at Tallassee or not, as well as of the. reported fight at that place. They struck " the Montgomery and West I'oirt Kailroad near LoacUapolca and tore up the track in the direction of Montgomery. until repulsed bv our forces near Ohehaw. They then t urned in the direction of Auburn, burnt Camp Watts, after a gallant resistance 11y Maj. Heed, with a small body of men. They burnt the stringers and bent (he iron of the railroad for at least twenty-five miles. We understand the iron can be used after straightoning again, without being re-wrought. | They burnt the Government property, but respected private property, except sufficient for subsistence, arid look such horses as needed. Indeed, they acted as if they were out on an electioneering tour, as it is said they distributed various papers in Tallapoosa, and at Opelika and Auburn and other places, supplied everybody with all the provisions they would eavry oil' before burning the balance. They stated they came with full expectation of being captured, and were willing to risk it in-orderto cut communications West. This accounts for their courtesy, as it is an anomaly to Yankee character. They burnt, of coins*-, all water-tanks and depots ; there being few if any bridges :ind little tvestlework on the route. We understand we had from 10 to 14,000 lbs. of sugar, with a huge quantity of leather and :*>me meat, and cereals at Opelika, which was destroyed, Wo liiuCut nn exchange the following sketch of the literary life of Mr.--. Maxwell, better .-known in this country as Miss. ]>ra<Mou : She was originally an actress at Hull Theatre, England. playing under the name of Miss Seyloti. She was also employed by the manager to write introductions to the puctomimos. In 1SU0 Iter fitst comedy, entitled "The Loves of Arcadia," was perform* d at thefStrand The, aire, lu 1 HO I she published a volume of poems. This induced a Mr. Einpson, a llull | publisher, to contract with her for the publieaI lion of a romance, entitled "Three. Torres Dead. or ^The Secret; of the Heath," which, l?y tlie way, mined tins poor follow. It seems that Miss Braddoii (M p>. Maxwell?we. beg her pardon) does not. acknowledge. "Three Tinges Dead,"-as in n note to a friend, she speaks of her writings as follows, nowhere mentioning the unlucky book?"the comedy and this volume of.poetry were followed, firstly, by "The Trail of the Sorpnnt;" secondly, "Lady Lisle thirdly, "The Captain of tlur Vulture';" fourth ly, "Kalph, the Bailiff;" fifthly, "Lady Andley's Secret;" and. sixthly, "Aurora Floyd;1' all of which made their first appearance in periodicals. Besides these novels, I have at the same time edited a monthly review and a weekly review and I wrote, anonymously, nianv arti cles for the latter. I am now writing, as you know, 'John Marehmont's Legacy' and 'Eleanor's Victory.' " Since this letter was written, she has written "The Outcasts," and two more novels, the names of which we do not remember. The popularity of her writings may be judged from the fact that 1.32,000 copies of "Lady Audley's Secret" were sold in London. In February, 1804, Miss Braddon married Mr. Maxwell, the proprietor and editor of the magazine in which most of her novels were originally published. ' Interesting Incident.?The Atlanta sippr.al, of Tuesda}', says that when the order of the President relieving Gen. Johnston and placing G<jn. Hood in command of the priny bocamo'known, the three Lieutenant Generals, Hardee, IIood and Stewart, united in sending a telegram to the President, representing the unpropitious effect that might ho produced by a change of commanders at this critical moment, and respectfully urging a reconsideration of the order.

CAMDEN DAILY JOURKAL riMiK-U' 29. No news by Telegraph Ibis morning. rassengers who arrived in Columbia on "Wednesday j state I bat they saw in tbe New York Herald, of a recent date, tbc announcement of tbe death of Hon. Git A kt. His death was said to have been caused from tbe cll'cctsof a wound in tbe arm, which necessitated amputation. * As the cause of the llugs of the vessels in James lliver being at half mast, several days ngo^ has not been olhciwi.se explained, tliero mliy be some truth in llio report. Tho new Secretary of tho Treasury has signalled bis entry in'o tli.e J'.cpartnient by tho adoption of a measure which will not only materially aid in providing funds to meet the occasional necessities of the Government, but will go liir t"wards begetting a feeling of eonlidcnee in tho currency, if sucli a tliiiigf be possible. lie lias advertised for call loans, at four'por cent. secured by'hypothecation of the six per cent, lion-taxable bonds authorized by tlio Act of Fobrunry last. Loans of this soi l linvo always been favorites wit.li capitalists, and Mr. Trf.n'hot.m will probnbly liavo at bis command a large portion of tlio floating eupital of tlio Confederacy, and be enabled in case sudden emorgency to preservo tlio Treasury from serious embarrassment. - ' Tlio Iliclunotid Enquirer in commenting on this matter, suggests .that if the Secretary wore not restricted bv laws to a mxed rate of interest, but wore authorised to accept loans, at such rates as ho may deem proper, within certain limits, tlie call certificates would uot only enable the Treasury to anticipate its revenues, but give the Secretary complete control over the currency. This is certainly a consummation devoutly to bo wished for. Hut wo do not see bow the plan could bo made thoroughly effective without tlio establishment of a t.alional'lJiuik, for which our people are not (and wo liopej.hcy never will be) prepared. In fnet tlio jRiquircr admits that the English system of Exchequer Bills, which the Call boan certificates resemble in so:no respects, could not. lu? used without the assistance of the Bank of England, which discounts and sells the hills, and, in fai l, acts as a iniddlc-iquu bet ween tlio tJovcrnnient and ihe iuivcis. Still, much good may. we i> i.eve, lie accomplished l<v tlie measure. and we agree with the L'tujuirer in thinking that the Secretary i ought to he authorised to vary the ruto of interest to [ suit the fluctuations of the money market. Tlic Wtu'lH I'ltiropn. 1 The Danish war lias recommenced. The London conference failed in its elfnvts to secure peace; and as J a conseiiuenco, the Prussian (4overument sent orders , to Marshal Vox wkaxui.k to resume hostilities. This j tovk place on the 20th of last month. The excite. in cut in Knglaud consequent tipAi tho resumption of 'hostilitiea was immense, it clearly being tho desire of i the people that their (lovommcnt should aid tho Dauos, Lord Pu.mkustox, however, 1ms declared that England cannot alone po to war lor Denmark. A Northern paper, noticing the stand England lias taken on tlii.s war says. r Assured that no other power would side with them in lavor of Denmark, Lord Palmcrflton will not undertake a war which would he based merely upon chivalrous and not selfish motives, the latter being the usual incentive where England is concerned. The opposition members of the English Parliament arc endeavoring to outset Lord Palnierston and his Cabinet onthis Danish question, and with every show of success, as the popular will is in their favor. Lord Derby, who is at the head of the opposition, would- succeed Palidcrstou as Premier, and is asserted ho would inaugurate a warlike, policy. Should this course be pursued, England might regaiu the prestige she lost. St ill fnoro, ohrt 11ma >.nfll? V 1- ~t r-_.. . x<?tiv>cuii o ]uiiiih ior hid supremacy of France throughout Europe. England should take n bold stand on this war. She should send a lurgo fleet to co-operate with the Danish vessels of war in German waters. Sho should enenter into tho Italian question with the determination of arousing the people agaiDSt Austria. The fate of Vcnetia sho might settle at once. "With a powerful licet in tho Adriatic sho might.force Austria to give up all hold upon Italian soil. Then it wero an easy matter to rouso tho Hungarians to ono strugglo against tho hated Hapsbtirg.
