tUlpcaga tribune.
Hr. Biyan, though defeated, has lost
nothing of his popularity by the ordeal
through which he has passed. Conducting
the canvass, so far as he was concerned
therein, with perfect! fairness and courtesy,
rebuking by his example the trickery and
debauchery by which electors are some
times influenced, declaring all his opinions
without reservation, and concealing nothing
that any voter ought to know, he has done
much to relieve our municipal politics of
the stigma which base practises have earned.
2n this he has done the public essential
Service; and at some future day, the peo
ple, upon whom qualities like these which
Mr. Bryan possesses are never lost, will be
sure, in some emergency, to call him to a
higher position than that of which he has
just been defrauded. If he was deservedly
Valued as a good citizen, on Monday last,
When all agreed that his election was sure,
he is doubly valued 10-day when his elec
tion is lost by bis refusal to be dishonest
that he might attain power and place. For
such a man, a city like Chicago will not
fail to find use.
All the majority claimed for Sherman by
bis Copperhead friends is found in the
vote of the additions made to the city by
the last Legislature. Four, hundred and
ninety-five majority in Bridgeport! If the
Legislature had done a little more, and
taken the Penitentiary at Joliet-into the
corporation, the Copperhead majority
Would have been larger still.
It is a satisfaction to know that in Chi
cago as it was before the Legislature glued
those additions on, Mr. Sherman, elected
last year by about twelve hundred majority }
is beaten, and well beaten —beaten in spite
of the large additional vote cast, a consid
erable part of which was illegal and fraud
ulent, designedly so for Copperhead advan
tace. And it is a further satisfaction to be
able to say that, in the wards where
intelligence and refinement, educa
tion, religion, temperance, and all the
attributes of virtuous citizenship, do most
abound, there Mr. Bryan found his strong
est support and largest majorities; and
that in the localities where whisky is the
most common drink, in the vicinity of tho
brothels and gambling-hells—down among
the debased and ignorant, the shoulder
hitters and ruffians of whatever virulency
of type, the renegades of all Chris
tendom, the pariahs of all modem civ
ilization —there Mr. Sherman’s strength
was found. There his majorities
were piled up. "We certainly
derive no satisfaction from a contrast like
this; but it is due to the public, who won
der how in this crisis in our country’s his
tory, the loyalty of Chicago could be un
true. Sir. Jefferson, that early and most
eminent Abolitionist, said that groat cities
were an eye-sore in the body politic. A
few more municipal dections will prove
that Chicago is no exception to the role.

"Will some more learned than we in mili
tary affairs, explain how it is that, since
the war began, there has been no concert
ed and simultaneous movement of all our
forces upon tbe enemy’s works—why, at
this writing, Grant is not pushing forward,
in conjunction with Rosecrans, and why
Burnside does not turn his face toward *
East Tennessee, while Jo Hooker threat
ens Hidimond, Banks assails Port Hudson,
and Foster and Hunter strike at whatis be
fore them ? Why should not Burnside in
augurate the movement by leading forty
thousand men . through Cumberland Gap
and falling upon Knoxville, and if possible,
cutting off the communications between
Chattanooga and Richmond? What stra
tegical insanity and fatuity is it that makes
our armies, like a team of unequal horses
—while one pulls with all his might, the
Other flics back to his base, both'accom
plishing nothing? There is perfect com
munication between Vicksburg and the
rebel camp at Tullahoma; between
Richmond and Charleston. The enemy
moves in a circuit, and, like a revolving
battery, ran always present his heaviest'
metal to the point most exposed; hence as
long us we fight in January at Murfrees
boro, and in April at Charleston, making,
meanwhile, no imposing or violent demon
stration upon Vicksburg or Richmond, he
can always outnumber us in every field.
Docs any man suppose that when General
Hunter threatened the Charleston batteries
in the rear, with his land forces, he would
have been met, when advancing with his
handful of veterans, by the seventy-five
thousand men that were dispatched from
Richmond to destroy him, if Hooker had
been ready to march upon GordonsviUe
and besiege the rebel capital; or, is it be
lieved that sixty thousand rebel troops
Would be mossed at Vicksburg, if Rose
crans were ordered to advance simultane
ously with the others and seek a fight
Wherever he could find it? Despite the
confident assertion of Parson Browidow,
We believe that the rebel force is far smaller
than our own; but always forewarned of
danger which has never yet threatened two
places at once, they Lave had opportunity
to do the work of double their numbers.
Wc have attacked, as McClellan did at
Anlietam, in detail; the enemy has de
fended in masses. We know what results
have been attained. Isitnottimethatthero
was some concert of action—some compre
hensive plan by which all the enemy can
be employed. Is there no man in the
nation, capable of forming and carrying
out such a plan, whom the President can
call to his side.
Lord John Russell has delivered a very
important opinion respecting the right of «
the Government of the United States to
Eeize British vessels suspected of carrying :
contraband of war for the rebels. lie has '
decided that the right is absolute in all
cases where vessels arc “ reasonably sus- ,
pcctcd ”of being engaged in such traffic, or '
Ehall “ attempt to touch at, or have on in- '
tennediate, or contingent destination to,
Some blockaded port or place.”
His Lordship says that Her Majesty’s
Government cannot, without violating the
rules of international law, claim for British
vessels navigating between Great Britain
and these places any general exemption
from the belligerent right of visitation by
the cruisers of the United Slates— nor can
they proceed upon any general assumption
ihal vessels may not so act as la render their
capture lavful and Justifiable.
For, he adds, nothing is more common
than for those who contemplate a breach
of blockade, or the carriage ot contraband,
to disguise their purpose by a simulated
destination, and by deceptive papers; and
the situation of the ports on the coast of
Mexico with reference to the Confederate
States is such as to make it not only possi
ble, hut in many cases probable, that an
ostensible Mexican destination would he
resorted to as a cover for objects which
would really justify capture. It has al
ready happened in many cases, that British
vessels have been seized while engaged in
voyages apparently lawful, which vessels
have afterwards been proved in the prize
courts to have been really guilty of en
deavoring to break the blockade, or of car
rying contraband to the Confederates. ’
•the decision as to the lawfulness, or un
lawfulness, of the capture is to be left to the
Judges of the Prize Court of the captor;
and if a vessel has been illegally taken it
is the duty of the said Court to restore it
with costs and damages. The British Gov
ernment could only interfere if the Court
refused to adjudicate fairly upon the evi
This opinion has been very opportunely
rendered—so far as we are concerned—and
will relieve the Administration from &
good deal of anxiety upon the subject of
which it treats. It was called forth by a
kue? fc:oia Uio frmdoa nuifcbwiW/ Je-
questing Lord Russell to inform them
"whether British ships had a right to trade
with the Mexican port of Mctamoras,
without being subjected to visitation by
United States vessels. They hnSf, of
course, this right, as Lord Russell told
them, if they were bona fide traders, and
not contrabands. But the right of testing
whether they were traders or contrabands,
rested clearly with the Federal Govern
ment; and his lordship concludes his an
swer to the merchants with this emphatic
and remarkable declaration:
Her Majesty's Government cannot, vpon ex
parte statements, deny Hie belligerents in thi j war
the exercise of these rights vhich, in all tcjrs in
tehieh Great Jhiiain has been concerned, she has
claimrd herself to exercise.
The London Army and Havy Gazette
comes to the rescue of the Federal Gov
ernment against a certain rebel paper pub
lished in that city, which crows lustily
over the rumor that ofllcers of a negro reg
iment in Florida had been taken by the
Confederates and ordered to he shot forth
with like dogs, and without trial. • The
rebel paper only regretted that powder and
ball should be dishonored by having such
dirty work to do, and thought, no doubt,
that pincers and thumb-screws, and the
rack, and a picce-meal sundering of the
limbs from the body, would be a more
Christian and .civilized punishment for
men “guilty of an attempt to incite an in
ferior race to insurrection.”
The Gazette is naturally enough shocked
at this TJn-English proposal, and there
upon takes occasion to observe that the
American' rebels cannot understand the
feelings of England in regard to the war,
and that no sympathy with such bloody-,
minded schemes of vengeance—so utterly
inhuman, or worthy only of Minnesota
savages, would ever be found in that coun
try. Nay more, the writer affirms, what
all the world knows, that the uprising of a
portion of an enemy’s subjects, inferior, or
superior in race, is a desirable object to ef
fect ; and quite a legitimate operation of
war; adding that if Great Britain were
engaged in war with France, nothing
would he more natural than for France to
excite Hindoo, Mussulman and Arab to
revolt; and nothing more monstrous than
to treat officers engaged in that service
otherwise than as men conducting a legiti
mate operation. It is a necessary evil of
war, says the same writer, in which servile
insurrection maybe invoked by an invader
to increase the ordinary horrors and
calamities of hostile occupation. The
Southern rebels must carry* the whole
weight of slavery on their shoulders in
peace, or in war. Insurrection is an acci
dent and contingent of any war in which
a State of slaveholders engages; and the
officers who develop it are as free from any
act of vengeance or retaliation as those who
fight on the decks of their ships, or in the
lines of their regiments. So the rehd
London paper took nothing by its motion I
Our Consul at Bristol, England, is Z.
Eastman,- Esq., of this cUj’, well known to
multitudes of our Illinois readers, as an old
editor, and member of the “Old Guard” of
abolitionists, who were not ashamed to
hale slavery for its evils per sc years before
its aggressiveness made its destruction by
the people a work of self-preservation. Sir.
Eastman is well located, and excellently
well calculated to get a true view of the
British mind. In a recent private letter
from him to a gentleman in this city, he
I Bays:
“ Public feeling is in much better state here than
.It has been. Bristol had a great meeting, and sent
au Address to Ur. Lincoln. There trill be no trou
ble with the English Government, The best blends
w# hare are In this country.”
The Atlantic Slonthly for May.
The Atlantic Monthly for May is now ready
at the bookstores, and contains several papers
which trill compare tavorably with the best
contributions ever made to its classic pages.
There is os much freshness in it as ever, as
much sunny and genial writing, as much skill
in the construction and coloring of the stories,
as much learning, pleasantly, and, therefore,
popularly set forth in the solider articles,
and as much genuine ichor iu tho poems, aa
characterized its early and so called, palmy,
We do not ■wish even to appear invidious,
Lot wc honestly think there is no serial ex
tant, either in this conntry or In England,
which is at all equal to the Atlantic in point
ol literary merit. Awhile ago, it was our re
proach that wc had no periodical literature
worthy of the name; and we had to take what
we conld get from the proud and capable
English, nor look the gift horse too closely
in the month. In those days, Blackwood, and
Frazer, and Tail were the trinity by which wc
swore our allegiance to letters; not, however,
without much grumbling that we had no
gods of our own to swear by.
All is changed since then. Kit North's de
mise fclllike a black shadow upon the once
brilliant pages of Blackwood, and there it re
mains, dusk and heavy; tumbling its glooms
through articles which are meant to be bright
and good, and giving all readers hypocondria,
and the mumps, Instead, as of old, inspiring
them with ambrosial wit, and ihe wine of ge
nius. Frazer, too, which Carlyle christened
“ sand-magazine,” in contempt, long ago—ls
now qnito blind with Us own dust,
its eloquence a mere echo of the old
music which whilom thundered through its
matchless sentences; and it lives merely
npon the traditions of its ancient fame. Talt
has lost all tone, character and ability, and
has sunk into a well merited obscurity. In.
the meanwhile, the genius of literature, flap-'
ping her wings in the lace of these dying en
terprises, has abandoned them to their imbe
cility, and graciously come to ns with her in
spirations and glories. There is nothing of
the mock-heroic in all this, hard as it may.
sound to those who have been lUmiliar with'
the names of the English magazines, and
have learned to esteem them as the chief of
their class. Let any Impartial, compctentjudgo
examine the last number of Blackwood, for
example, and compare it with the present
issue of the Atlantic, and he will subscribe,
so far, to the general proposition which wc
affirm, os to the superiority of the American
over the English serials.
In this Mey number, there is one paper, en
titled 4 ‘ Dark Ways”—a sort of antobiograph--
ical confession, made to a Roman Catholic,
priest, by an Italian in the dungeons of Na
ples, who had betrayed his conntry to Austria,
instigated by an all absorbing love for a beau-,
tlful Austrian spy—which, in conception and
literary treatment, is without a rival In prose’
compositions. Lord Byron, in his Proph
esy of Dante, has reached its heights of
passion and agony, but he has not gone be-,
yond U, nor do wc think it possible lor any
one to excel It. It is, indeed, a prose poem,
and Is set in all the pomps and splendor of
language. The struggle between tbc prison
er’s love of country and bis love for the Aus
trian girl—who is so finely pointed that an ar
tist could moke an effective copy of it on
bis canvass—is’ wrought out with fear
ful power, and makes the reader trem
ble like an aspen lent His subsequent

of imagination and poetry.

Nathaniel Hawthorne continues his notes on

part of Ids record this month; and wc, who

about him and his abode. One day wc may

How a Bcl>cl mail was Cap
tured. .
It now comes ont I bat tbe important dis
patches of the rebel government, captured in
Charleston in possession of Reid Sanders, son
of George Sanders, were intercepted through
the instrumentality of Licnt. Arnold. Harris,
of the Navy, who went to Richmond at the
request of the Government, to frustrate if
possible the projects of George Sanders for
obtaining naval vessels for the rebels in Eng
land. At Richmond, Harris managed to in
gratiate himself with Sanders and the rebel
authorities, and when Sanders had completed
his arrangements for visiting England to carry
out his schemes, Harris induced him to pro
ceed byway of Matamoras to Halifax, leaving
his documents and dispatches to be run
through the Charleston blockade by Reid San
ders and himself, and taken to Halifax by way
of Nassau. A yacht was bought and loaded
with turpentine, and the two set sail from
Charleston in line spirits. Before sailing*
however, Harris communicated with the
blockading fleet, and when the yacht ran out
she was greeted by a cannonade, which fright
ened young Sanders out of his wits and made
him eager to surrender. The mail-bag,
heavily freighted with iron, was thrown over
board; hut Harris had previously abstracted
from it a portmanteau containing the impor
tant dispatches and documents, substituting
In its stead his own, which happened, os a rc
maikahle coincidence, of course, to be its ex
act counterpart.
One of tiic Family.
A very pretty piece of rascality has recently
been brought to light in New York, in which
Henry Wood—brother of Fernando and Ben—
figures, and which clearly demonstrates that
he is one of ’em. James Lynch, the Sheriff of
New York, in order to reward the Wood fam
ily for their aid In securing his election, ap
pointed Henry “Sheriff’s Auctioneer,” a po
sition entirely unknown to law or precedent.
For this service he was allowed to charge 10
per cent, over and above the legitimate fees
of the Sheriff, which of course mast comeout
of the pocket of the poor debtor. The Sher
iff, when he levied on goods scut them to the
auctioneer to be sold by that bogus function
ary, who would pocket the 10 percent. Wood
knew he bad a “ big thing,” and so ho specu
lated on it. One Hertz, an auctioneer, offered
him SB,OOO bonus and half the profits for the
job, which was accepted. Afterwards get
ting into a row with the Wood?, the
Sheriff withdrew his patronage, leav
ing Hertz out in the cold. Hertz finding
himself badly *• sold” commenced legal
proceedings for the recovery of his bonus
money, &c. This opened the whole iniquitous
6flair to the light, and resulted in spreading
before the public the villainous details given
In the New York papers, or in such of them,
at least, as were not deterred by political con
siderations and fear of Fernando Wood.
Here is a gang of harpies preying on cred
itor and debtor by a most deliberate system
of robbery, and ire-regret to add that the New
Tork bar must have been acquainted with all
the tacts, and tacitly sanctioned the proceed-
ings of the Sheriff and his coadjutors. Is it
possible that the profession of the law has be
come so degraded in the city ol New York as
to justify such a remark as this in a leading
New York journal: “ The tendency of our day
is certainly to convert a noble profession to a
trade, in which every practitioner gives the
smallest possible quantity of labor for the
largest possible amount of money, and wc can
only say that when the law becomes a trade,
it Is one of the most knavishand demoralizing
trades in existence.”
Losses In tiic Russian Cam-
A writer In the Washington Chronicle con
tends that “ Americans know nothing of mili
tary disasters,” and proceeds to fortify his
assertion by a statement of the losses suffered
by the Trench in the famous Russian cam
paign. The grand army of invasion consisted
of 801,970 men and 103,854 horses. During
the short campaign of nineteen weeks and two
days, the losses of the French, purely mili
tary, amounted to the enormous number of
247.000 men and 92,000 horses! These stalls
t ics arc derived from official statements of the
War Office of Paris. But other French ar
mies, besides that under the immediate com
mand oi Bonaparte, entered Russia, and took
part in and prolonged the campaign. The
total force numbered 047,000 men, of whom
600.000 were combatants. The number of
those who got out of Russia was 85,000. The
loss of the French, then, during that brief
campaign of twenty-five weeks, was five hun
dred and sixty-two thousand men and nine
hundred cannon!

is no reliance to bo placed in most of

The Conduct of the Common Schools
In Dayton—The Butternut Patriots
Cutting ISaclo Buttons from Boy*’
Capa, and Pulling Tri-color Boiettcs
from Girl*’ Hair- Because they arc
Partisan 1
[From the Cincinnati Commercial, Slat]
Wo have occasionally heard from the Cin
cinnati Enquirer that the city of Dayton Is
the “home of Mr. Vallaudigham,” and it is
boasted that it Is a place In which Democratic
victories arc won, and the beauties of the De
mocracy of the day placed on exhibition. It
is discovered that the city of Dayton contains
two classes of persons who are responsible
for its political character. And first of these
wc reckon the business men who arc so busy
on election day, and so respectable on the
nights of primary meetings, that they neglect
their public duties. The other class is com
ioscd of the conservatives from the alleys,
.he sticklers for the Constitution who abide
in the stews, the loafers, who are alarmed
about negro equality, and the patriots who
oscillate Detween the alms-house and the
watch house, but arc always mustered In fall
force at the polls. And so we hear, after
every election, that the home of Mr. Vallan-.
dighiam has sustained him. This is not alto
f ether astonishing when wc consider that the
omc of Benedict Arnold came near sustain
ing him, the other day. Yallandighamism, of
course, has free course to be glorified in Day
ton ; and it has made its appearance after the
manner following:
There is in the Dayton High School the son
of an officer In the rebel army, who glories in
bis father's shame, and, some weeks since,
sported abutternuton bis capos an emblem of
his attachment to the Jeff Davis conspiracy.*
The Union boys at the school were challenged
by this incident to show their colors, and dsd
so, using flag pins such as are familiar to onr'
readers. Then butternut boys mounted but
ternuts, and there was a spirit abroad in the
school somewhat resembling that abroad in
the country. The School Trustees, a majority
of them being of the Yallandigham persua
sion, were solicitous for-“peace,” and'“con
ciliation,” and u compromise,” and so they
compromised the matter by ordering that no
partisan emblems should be worn by the
High School boys. The precious butternuts
were discorded, and with them the Stars and
Stripes! It was not allowable that a boy
f honld wear the flag of his country as a breast
pin, as it was a partisan emblem! Strange to
cay, In the city ot Dayton Ibis conciliatory
and compromising measure of producing peace
was not entirely acceptable to the enlighten
ed inhabitants. The habit of wearing partisan
badges extended to the common schools, and
little boys, whose fathers were in the army,
had the audacity to wear eagle buttons, as
Well as flag pins, and little girls wore tri-col
ored rosettes. These were understood to be
partisan badges! They were the badges of
the paity that sympathizes with the Govern
ment as against the rebellion; and were,
therefore, offensive to the other parly that
sympathizes with the rebellion as against the
Government. And as the latter party is in
power in Dayton, “the borne of Mr. vallan
dlgham,” the eagle-buttons and tri colored
rosettes, and Stars and Stripes were offensive.'
The consequence is, an effort was made to sup
press eogle-bnttons and tri-colored rosettes, i
and the Stars and Stripes in the common ,
common schools of thecity of Dayton! And
this effort has extended to the cutting off of
eagle-buttons from the caps of little boys at
school, and tbc pulling of trf-colorcd rosettes
from the hair of little girls. It is curious to
’ be snre, but it is a* fact, that some of the
parents of childrentreated in this manner in '
ihccity of Dayton, “the home of Mr. Val
landigham,” liavo resented it. Parents have
even gone so far as to sew other eagle-buttons
on liute boys’s caps, in place of those cut off
bv the teachers nuder butternut authority.
’The Dayton City Board of Education held a
meeting on Thursday evening, April 16, the
proceedings of which wo find reported in the
Umpire. The agitating question was that rel
ative to the wearing ot badges. It appears
that Mr. -Young, a member of the. Board,
Offered a resolution that la 1 the
opinion of the Board, “there is in
:hc stars and stripes, the tri-colored
ribbon, ted white and blue, or the Amer
ican eagle, nothing of a partisan character,
but these are all national emblems, common
to all purUce,” and that American, youth
should he taught to love and honor them, and
“that this Board has no objection to the
wearing of these badges in tho- schools.”
T'clr resolution was evaded hy the Board, by
reference to a select committee. The tinimn.s
of the Vallandigham folks id tlfeit Iho butter*
nut baducis'as sacred as the Stars and Stripes,
the Iri color or the Americas E-igle; that tlic
rebellion is as legitimate as the Government:
that tieason is as reputable as loyalty; that
the assassins of the Southern Confederacy are
entitled to as much regard as the soldiers of
i the Union. Thai’s all! And When Mr. Val-
I landipham’s Home guard cut the eagle button
I from little boys’ caps, and pulled the trl-color
1 from little girl’s hair—all that they mean is
that the flag that now flies over Fort Sumter
Is just as good as the one that was hauled
down there two years ago—that the rebellion
of j.lcgerdom is’a sacred thing, and that it
becomes the Northern people to show them
selves the humble servants of too murderous

Lord Palmerston alluded to the American
question, during his speech iu Glasgow, in
the following terms: “I wish I conld tell you
tbat wetmticipateany very early termination
of that most lamentable struggle which is
going on among our kindred upon the other
side of the Atlantic. We must all deplore
that unhappy war. The most unhappy af all
wars is a civil war; but any interference on
the part of the nations of Europe, so far from
extinguishing the flame, would, in all human
X>robability, have only made it burn fiercer
and with greater heat. When the passions of
men are deeply cnllstcdlnthccontest inwhich
they are engaged—when foe is opposed to foe, j
and on the point of striking his antagonist,
any friend who interposes would only fare the
worst for his intu-poaitiou, but would not
avert the blow levelled by the oneagaiust the
other. I think the people of the United
Kingdom have judged Unit their government
has determined rightly in not attempting in* 1
teivcution. A great and most estimable part
of onr population has been suffering deep dis
tress. That distress has been less, perhaps, I
among yon in Scotland than in the dis
tricts south; but even here in Glas
gow and in other places great misery 1
has been experienced by the cessation of
the supply of the great staple of our Indus- I
I try. But if we had attempted by forcible j
I means to bring over that supply which, owing
1 to the contest, has been withheld from us, I
am convinced that, instead of diminishing I
the pressure, we should have increased it, I
and should very much have increased the evil
which we intended to alleviate, and the result J
would Lave been that the country would have
blamed hs for having taken a wrong view,
and having adopted u policy ill suited to the 1
circumstances. I trust still that this calatnl-
I tons war may soon lave an cud. I cannot but I
think, when the passions which excited that
I war have had their vent—and all passions
must have their vent—and when the results
of that war shall press more and more heavily
I upon both parlies engaged in it, that without
intervention, which they would resent as an
J affront, their own good sense and their own I
proper feelings may lead them to peaceful 1
intentions, and tbat arrangements may ho
made which will put an end to that dreadful
bloodshed and that wide spread desolation of
which the American continent has now for
1 nearly two years been the scene. Gentlemen,
I can assure you that the policy which we,
the present Government, pursu**, is founded
upon onr belief that wc are the faithful expo
nents of the feelings and sentiments of the
English people. I believe, and all indications
have confirmed the conviction, that in that
judgment we arc not mistaken. [Cheers.]
Ana I will say this, speaking as I now do to
an assembly not composed entirely of men of
one political party—l will say in the spirit of
an Englishman—[cheers]—that I am con
vinced that if circumstances should lead to a
change in those who administer the affairs of
the country, and that if the men who now sit
opposite to us. and are politically ourantago
nista, though not personally our enemies—
[cheers]—should take the places which wc
now occupy, they would, both from their
personal feeling, but more than all, by the
effect and pressure of public opinion in this
country, pursue a course much the same as
that which we ourselves pursue. [Cheers.]
I say it uot to their disparagement, but to
their honor, for I hope, and trust, and believe
that the honor aud interest of the country
would be safe in their hands. Ido not, at
the same time, tell you that I look forward
with any great or particular impatience to the
moment when they will bo pnt to that which,
i trust, would not be to them a severe trial.
[Laughter and cheers.]
[From the London Army and Navy Gazette, Edited
by Wm. H. Russell.]
There is a journal in this metropolis which
is the reputed organ of the Confederate States.
At all events, tin; paper has decided Southern
proclivities. In the last number, it is asserted
that civilized nations will think death by
powder and ball “ is too respectable for men
guilty of an attempt to incite an interior race
to insurrection.” Xhc allusion arises from a
report that Federal officers of a certain negro
regiment, which la said to have been taken iu
Florida, has been sentenced to be shot. This
passage is one of many proofs that the Ameri
cans cannot comprehend the feelings of this
country—it may be of any other—regarding
the war. Tho uprising of a portion of nu
enemy’s subjects, inferior or superior in race,
is a desirable object to effect—it is quite a
legitimate operation of war. If Great Britain
were engaged in a war with France, nothing
would be more natural than for our enemy to
excite Hindoo, Mnssnlmcn and Arab to re
No rale of warfare would permit ns to treat
officers engaged in Unit service otherwise than
as men conducting a legitimate operation. It
Is a necessary evil of a war, in which servile
insurrection maybe invoked by an invader,
to increase the ordinary honors and calami*
ties of hostile occupation. "When some years
ago Southern statesmen, insolent andaggress
ive, threatened this country with war, it was
remarked over and over again, in British
Journals, that the dispatch of some of our
West Indian regiments to Louisiana or the
Carolines might be one of the most'formidable
agencies to which even our vast belligerent
power could resort. Our Southern Wends
must carry the whole weight of Slavery on
their shoulders, in peace or in war. Servile
Insurrection would be a dreadful evil. It
would be a repetition of the Indian revolt of
1557. An inferior race would rise against
their masters. But it is an accident and a
contingent of any war, in which a State of
slaveholders engages. The officers who devel
ope it are as free from any act of vengeance or
rctalllation as those who fight on the decks of
their ships or in the lines of their regiments.
[From the London Times (money article), April 3.]
In the foreign market there has again been
great activity, and in most instances an im
provement. The Confederate loan, however,
has been ah exception. The price in the
morning was I*2 discount to par, but in the
afternoon a further fall occurred, which was
increased just at the close by a telegram an
nouncing ihe stoppage ofMr. J, B. Spence, of
Liverpool, In the grain trade. A report was
immediately circulated that this was Mr.
Spence, the Confederate financial agent, and
the scrip of the loan finally went to 21-3 to
1 1-2 discount. The Confederate financial
agent, however, is Mr. James Spence, and al
though he Is nearly related to Mr. J. B. Spence,
there has not been, it is said, the slighest busi
ness connection between them.
[From the Daily News.]
The scrip of the new Confederate loau was
•gain very heavy to-day. and gradually de
clined, closing at 2% to 2 discount. Some ot
the sales were said "to bo attributable to an
impression that Mr. John B. Spence, mer
chant, of Liverpool, who has just stopped
payment, is identified with the financial agent
of the Confederate Government. This, how
ever, is not the case. Mr. John B. Spence,
who has been fifteen years in business, and is
well known. Is a brother of Mr, James
Spence, the Confederate agent, but is entirely
unconnected with him in business.
[From the Herald.]
In the case of the Confederate cotton loan
a further fall in the quotation having occurred
to-day, the scrip remained dull at the depre
ciation to the clote. The drop is ascribed
chiefly to heavy speculative sales promoted
by parties favorable to the North.

• The Confederate Cotton Loan, the object cf
which is to get money here to pay for the war
fhipe, new building, in violation of laic, in our
porUJor the Southern Caftdcraaj, and which,
when launched a fortnight since, suddenly ob
tained so much favor as to rise to a premium
of five per cent., has already experienced a
signal reverse of fortune.- As the rotten na
ture of tbc security offered by the Confederate
Government came to bo belter known, and
tbc scandalously illegal purposes to which the
money was to be applied in England were ex
posed, people who at first were thoughtlessly
allured by the apparently splendid profits of
fered, took the alarm; and the consequence Is
that the Confederate Loan is now dealt with
on our Stock Exchange at a discount of two
per cent., and manifests all the symptoms
of a commodity rapidly sinking out of public
Cotton in England.
[From the N. Y. Commercial Advertiser.]
The importations ot cotton into Englandfor
the present year have amounted to 810,000
bales, against 200.000 lor the corresponding
period in 16G3. The quantity afloat on Its way,
to that country was estimated at 400,000 boles
at the latest dates. On the whole, the. condi-,
lion of the eotton manufacture is considered:
to have improved greatly during the year.!
The reports from India as to the growing crop
nrc favorable. In Madras Presidency some
thing over a million acres are under cultiva
tion for cotton—an increase of thirty per cent,
upon the preceding year. The new crop
has turned out well, both as to quantity and
We notice that in Asiatic Turkey the plant- 1
ing of cotton has been as rapidly extended as,
might be expected among a people who have |
so little faith in progress. On the line of the
new railway from Smvrna to Aidin, about
forty miles of which have been opened, the
‘people are addressing themselves pretty vig
orously to cotton cultivation. The lowlands,
•of that region are well adapted to It, and now
that for the first time easy communication has
bicn established between the interior and the
coast, it is reasonable to expect a good devel
opment cf the resources of that ancient and
classic country. So it goes. The most active
and enterprising people of the globe obtain
practically a monopoly of tbc world’s mar

greatest enthusiasm was exhibited, and all
were eager to be In the advance column.
During the absence of the expedition to

service in discharging advanced picket duty
on Port Royal island. With the enemy in
full sight, and dally threatening au attack
upon the defenses of Beaufort, they main

as much coolness and bravery us their while

With a few exceptions the regiments which
took pait in the expedition Lave all returned

Although the larger part of the army has
returned to its old camping ground, it must
not be supposed that all the important points
near Charleston, which were occupied by our
troops, have been abandoned. Folly Island,
Coles L-laudandKiawuh Island, are still in onr
possession, and arc garrisoned with a force
sufficient to hold them. This repulse will also
necessitate no change in Florida. St. Augus

Do you desire to know the definitive pro
gramme in Mexico? Here it is, as given to
me by well informed friends of the Govern
ment. After defeating Juarez, some sort of a
Government, “by the national will, and aid
ot the French,” Is to be instituted In his
place, but no matter for the present what this
Government may be, so that it is not Juarez,
and is favorable to the French. This accom
plished, France will demand of the new Gov
ernment war indemnity, and the Government,
not being able to pay the indemnity, the
French will accept in payment the concession,
for an indefinite period, of the right of work
ing, lor their exclusive profit, certain mines
of the precious metals in Sonora and Chi
huahua, and, moreover, they will exact from
the new Government commercial treaties of
the most favorable character. In order to in
sure the faithful performance of the contract
on the part of the Mexicans, and to prevent
the re-commencement of civil war In the
country, the French will strongly garrison
with their own troops, as long as required,
four or five of the most important strategic
points of the country.

Virginia Cavalry, was executed at Richmond
on the 10th inst., for violating his parole, he

The ‘Wheeling Intelligencer says Webster ob

Pierpont in November last, on a forged letter
of recommendation. In the meantime he was
captured, by the rebels, was paroled, and had
returned to his company; but tbc fact of the
discovery of the forgery having leaked out,
Capt. Alphonso C. Webster passed within the
rebel lines to escape a trial by a Federal court
martial. It is supposed that, under these cir
cumstances, ho was again arrested bv tbo
rebels, and tried and convicted for violating
Me parole. Not mnch Is known of Webster
beyond what is above stated. He was thrown
np.to the surface by this rebellion from some
where in Texas or the West, and was regarded
as a very ignorant but daring and resolute fel

The Bishop certainly suggested the impropri

progress of the trial, and after a conversation
on the subject, participated In by the Court

change of mind was not made known
to the warden with whom Dr. C. made the en
gagement, as he was at the depot with a car
riage, to receive Dr. Clover at the specified
time; and he knowing nothing of the change
till nearly ten o’clock Saturday night, when
other arrangements were made.
