SUNDAY, MARCH 6, ISSL
KENTUCKY*
It is a pity that Kentucky cannot make up
hermlud to be wholly and entirely like oth
er commonwealths, in the same circumstan
ces. But there seems to be & notion, very
widely spread among the inhabitants of that
Slate, that Kentucky does not belong to the
vest of the world, but Is a sort of specialty,
set apart by the Creator, with peculiar privi
leges, and with a freedom from the ordinary
liabilities of humanity.
■ This position was taken at the beginning of
the war; and though we had supposed it for
the most part given up,‘U still .seems to be
adhered to, even by good, and wo most be
lieve, loyal men.
There seems to be a notion in that State
that Kentucky is to go through this war and
cany with her unscathed her peculiar insti
tution. No matter what becomes of slavery
in Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana, Ken
tucky is tobave it safe and sound; and the
General Government is bound to aid andpro
tcct her in s-iving It
That this claim is less offensively urged
than In the beginning of the rebellion, is true.
A set of men much more reasonable, and
with a better st>le of patriotism, ore coming
before the public. Old Gov. Wlckiiffe was
set aside at the late election. Garret Davis
has probably got pretty much through. But
the new tribe do not talk like other men.
. Brnmlettc, Powell and Malory cannot put
- the * into Shibboleth. They kiss and splut
ter when' they try to talk loyally. .In
other words, they insist that the Gen
eral' Government shall not come
Into Kentucky to recruit hJarl- men' for her
armies. 'Theldea of black men in the army
at all Is evidently not agreeable to them; but
If they'must be had, go elsewhere to procure
them.. But why not recruit black menia
Kentucky ? "Weareawarc of no special sor
vice rendered by that State which pats the
Government and the country under any obil
* gallon, to her more than to others Where
are those who felt that the peculiar coarse of
Kentucky has been a great damage to the
■canae of the Union from the first;,£hat her
•position of “neuiraUty” through *thc cirly
days of the war was an outrage upon her ob
ligations, and that the case had been better,
had She-cven gone into rebellion like Tennes
see, But it is not worth while npw to care
for that matter. The past may well enough
be forgotten. But it is time she bad done
with her antics. Kicking colts and prancing
nags are not long to be paid much attention
to in the team of the Union. Horses that
will draw all the time one way, are what is
wanted now.
As to the question of blacks, an Ethiopian
in Kentucky is not more important, that we
are aware, than in any other State. He is no
more'an important personage than if he dwelt
in Arkansas, or Maryland. He is precisely
as much in obligation to military service as if
he had his home In any town precinct or coun
ty of any commonwealth of the Union. This
is true in whatever way yon look at him. If
yon regard him as property, the Government
has a right to him. It takes Kentucky horses,
and pigs, and steers, -os soon as It takes
any other. True it pays for them. So is It
ready to pay for the Ethiopian. The master
can get S3OO, in greenbacks, for bis “boy;**
and that is probably quite as much as be is
worth in any part of that “sovereignty** at
the present time.
But if yon regard him as a “person,** the
clnlm holds just as good. The white man is
freelyiylelded, as Gov. Bramlette and Malory
both allow.. Is .the black “person** any bet
ter, more precions, or more unfit, than the
sons of her best citizens?
And so does the bogus Confederacy even
regard it. 6be has used the blacks in the
■war ■from the first;* and has Jnstpasseda
new act conscripting the free blacks into the
army, and 20,000 slaves as workmen and
waiters.' But if yon put them into the army
at all, so far as the principle goes, it docs not
matter what particular service yon set them
at. They are apart of the army, whether
•they’cany a gun, handle ordnance, dig tren
ches, drive teams, or cook for the officers.
The question as to what yon will put
them to, -Is a matter of convenience, or per
haps of--fitness. They take the place of sol
diers, whatever they do. ."Whether yon give
them muskets depends on the fact whether
they.can use them well.
Airtbat matter is to he left to.the judg
ment ofthe government after it has got them.
In any event, the Government can go into
Kentucky and enlist men, black or white, or
hrown or speckled,- just as they happen to
he colored.
• 'What is the objection? Clay Smith thinks
“it "will retard the progress ol the Union
feeling in Kentucky ” Perhaps it will, but
perhaps it Trill not. There is a party In
- State already, which demands exactly this
thing, which the tender-looted ol her sons are
wo afraid ot They are for fighting the rebels
not only, but for so fixing things that there
will be no rebels again to fight. In other
words, they are for putting blacks, bond or
-free, into the army, and vnsiriwg them free.
' Perhaps this party is already larger thap Mr,
Smith is aware of; and perhaps it will grow
much faster than he anticipates.
. Bui whether it be so or not, we are for see*
ing the thing pat through. If Kentucky
Unionism is of so fragile a sort that it can
not be handled,~lct it take its chances. It is
too late in the day to be fooling over the dif
ference between tweedledum and iipeedktfee.
The Union wants soldiers. Kentucky has
got them to spare. Let ns have them. She
offers ns .white once. But we want black
cues, too. We will take the Saxons, but we
must have the Nubians also.
Let ns have no more conditions of loyalty,
no more of this assumption that slavery is
any more sacred in one State than it is in
another. '

ADDRESS,
The rebel Congress, as perhaps onr readers
remember, uttered an address before its ad
journment, to the people of the Confederate
States; in which they rehash all the falsehoods
and blunders ofthe rebellion.eo far as space is
afforded. The attempt is, in the light of their
experiences, to set forth a justification to
themselves of their undertaking, and to say
whatever they con to keep the poblic (rebel)
courage up,—
The tone of the document is greatly cbis*
toned. This fact, in itselfi is proof that the
peril of their position is known by nobody
better than by themselves. The Iron has en
tered into their soul, and there is no use in
withholding the confession of it The docu
ment therefore is apologetic; and tries to ex
cuse, as well as it, can, their failures. The
reason of these it professes to find in the vast
disproportion of the population ol the two
sections, and in “the deficiency of skilled
labor in the South.” Something then has
been learned. ‘ Skilled labor, has a value
even in the eyes of rebels. TluT ‘ 1 mudsills ”
and “ greasy, mechanics ” may gain an advan
tage in war.
Bat after all, what is tbc hope of these
men as to the future, with which they strive
to~ bnoy up the courage ol their people?
When sifted it all centers in the North. It
is not, any longer,in European intervention;
It is not in their own power to acquire inde
pendence. Bnt ihclr Independence they hope
to gsiofvnd -Ulk ol
They desire “peace”, intensely. Of coarse
they do. That has been their d<#
sire," ever since they have found
what war meant, and that one Southern
could not whip five Yankees. Bnt their
terms of peace are such ns are “consistent
with the honor, and integrity, and • indepen
dence of the States, and compatible with tbc
safety of tbeir domestic institutions.” There
yon .have it alh Independence—integrity;
which means full' boundaries—you under
stand—and safety of the institutions: which
means slavery all mended np’ond made safe
and sound. These gained,' they want peace.
Nobody with an ounce of sense supposes
they don’t. Itisnoncws to tell us that;
except we have made fools of ourselves, and
have been Imagining that they wanted peace
on some other terms, such as we could afford
also. Bnt what Is their hope of getting it ?
They imagine they have mode a profound
impression on the North. The gist of tbeir
statement Is thus given: : ~:Z
The Republican party was .founded to destroy
slavery and the equality of the States, and Lincoln
t was selected as the Instrument to accomplish this
object. The Union was a barrier to the conaam- •
nation of this policy, because the-Constitution,
which was Us hoed, recognized and protected
slavery and the sovereignty of the States.
The Union must therefore he sacrificed, and to
insure its destruction was determined on. The
mass of the Northern people were not privy to. ,
and sympathized with no sc*ix design. They fovea
the Union and wished (o preserve it. To rally the
people to the support of the war, its object wis
proclaimed to he a restoration of the Union, as if
that which implied the voluntary assent of snch
agreement was on indispensable element and con- ;
■ dUlon to he preserved by coercion. It is absurd to
pretend that a Government really desirous of re
sfcringlhe Union would'adopt each measures as
“the confiscation of private property, the emanclpa- (
14on of the tlaree, systematic efforts to Invite them ;
to. insurrection, forcible sbdaction from their ;
and compulsory enlistment In the army— .
of a State without Us consent and a '
prodpmatloo that one-tenth of a State, and that 1
tenth under military rule, should control the will
*- of the remaining nine-tenths. The only relation'
. between the two sections under snch policy is
ahat of conqueror and conquered, superior and de
pendent. It would hardly be fair to assert that all
nrthern people participate in these designs on
country. There exists a powerful political
*wbo openly condemns them. The admlnls
have, however, been able thus lor-, by its
"s patronage and its lavish expenditures, to

complete subvention of constitutional freedom by
Abraham Lincoln and feel in their own persons the
bitterness of the slaver; which three year's of war
hare failed to inilia on the South. Breve and ear
nest men at the North have spoken out Against the
usurpation and cruelly practiced. The success of
there men over the radical and despotic faction
which now rules the North may open the way to
jH-accful negotiation and a cessation of this bloody
and cnnrrcseary war. In conclusion wo exhort our
fellow dtiaens to be of good cheer and spare no la
bor nor Facrfiicea that may to enable ns
to win the campaign upon which we have just en
tered.
The sort of stuff with which they attempt
to feed their dopes is thus seen at a glance.
Because we have some rebels here os well as
there, something is going to happen In their
favor pretty soon. There was a time when
the Northern rebels were dangerous. But
these Solons do not know that just as the re
bellion has been subdued at the South, in ex
actly that ratio has it perished also at the.
North. There has not been a single hour
since Sumter felt the first rebel shell, when
there was so little power on the part of their
Northern allies to help them as this, when
we write this paragraph. Just as tho rebel
lion staggers with weakness in Dixie itself,
so fast it feels frlntncss, and reels to its end
Id tho free States.' ‘
On the whole, it is doubted if this address
will help the rebel cause with the Soatbem
people. They will take It as a ’ confession of
all they fear. It will make apparent the fret
that the leaders have no more well-grounded
confidence of success than the people. The
feeling of gloom and hopelessness Is already,
intense. This paper will not of Itself relieve
it; and coupled with such - legislation as its
authors have just enacted, will help to smoth
er what little of hope previously existed.
Young Blood*
• Gen. .Kilpatrick and Gen. Caster, whose
exploits arc to-day the leading theme of
newspaper comment and of social remark,
ore both of them men in the hey-day of
youth. Kilpatrick Jg twenty-eight years old,
and has been a widower for about a year.
Custer, the youngest General in our service,
is but twenty-four years of age, and was mar
ried only three or lour weeks ago. Both of
these brave young men are West Pointers,
<md were graduates In the same class—that of
1801.
Gen. Avcrill, who made the brilliant raid
Into Western Virginia, is a little the senior of
these two. He is now lying In Washington
wi h both feet suffering severely Horn frost
bite. During the dash into Southwestern
Virginia he was at one time forty-eight boars
in the saddle, exposed to the fury of a hitter
cold storm, and he has been disabled evef
since. The public, which appreciates such
gallant services as Avcrill has rendered, will
be pleased to learn that he Is recovering, and
will be, before long, once more In the saddle.
The Causes of tlie War.
In the House of BcpresentativcSj on Mon
day, Scbenck, of Ohio, offered a scries ofres
elutions, the second of which read as fol
lows :
“This rebellion should be effectually put down,,
and to prevent a recurrence of each rebellion in fu
ture the cause which led to this must bo permanent
ly removed.**
The yeas and nays were demanded on the
last clause, as to the removal of the cause of
the rebellion.
J. C. Allen, of Illinois, (copperhead) as bis
name was called voted yea, amid excessive
laughter.
Mr. Alley, of Mass., voted no.
This caused much merriment, bat the gen
tleman directly changed his vote, explaining
that for the moment be thought he was vo
ting right, being opposed to the gentleman
from Illinois.
Mr. Cox, of Ohio, (copperhead) amid the
confusion, said: - “ We, on this side, vote for
the resolution, because the causes of the war
were abolition, and secession, and ought to
be removed.**
if Cox bad to vote upon a proposition to
remove the cause of hydrophobia in a district
with mad dogs, we suppose he would
have to explain that be meant water and
dog*s teeth.
Vindication of Gen. Washbnrne.
- Major Gen. Ord*s report, in regard to the
battle of Bayou Cotean, Louisiana, has been
received, and it completely vindicates Gen.
Washbume from the charges of bad manage
ment of that affair, which were “made by a
newspaper correspondent. He says: “Gen.
Wasbburne woe at his prescribed post, with
his command, on the morning of the attack,
and it was owing to his and diligence
that the rear guard, when attacked, were re
inforced promptly, and the enemy driven
away discomfited.”

VOLUNTBEBINO BOUNTIES.
It will bo eemembered that tho House last
week passed a Joint resolution, as reported
from the Military Committee, continuing tho
increased bounties to volunteers to the Ist o
April next, and consequently postponing the
draft to that date. In the Scnytc yesterday,
Mr. Wilson, oi the Military Committee, re
ported back the Joint resolution continuing
the increased bounties to the Ist of April
next, and it was taken up. He said he re
ported it without any recommendation on
the part of the committee. Mr. Fessenden
wished to know if the committee did not re
commend It, did tho Secretary of War. Mr.
/Wilson replied that the bill came from the
Military Committee of tho House, but the
Senate Committee had nothing from the Sec-;
rctaiy of War upon tho subject. From a
conversation had with him, however, it was
inferred that the Secretory desired the exten
sion. The authority to pay the SBOO and S4OO
bounties expired to-diy. We were enlisting
over 2*,0C0 men per day,, and several Govern-,
ore t f Eta tea asked the peerage ofthe resolu
tion* 0 Gens. Hancock and Burnside had also'
scot word that from different sections of the
country that th.ir quotas would be filled by
the Ist of April If the bounties were contin
ued. Mr. Fessenden wanted the resolution'
referred back to the Military Committee, to’
inquire into the necessities of the case and'
inform the Senate. The Finance Committee!
could then look into the question of expend- 1
ilurcs. Mr. Sherman said these high boun
ties would involve an expenditure of $20,-
000,000 beyond the estimates, in addition to
the money paid for commutation. He knew
that that estimate was enormous. The sus
pension of the draft hadgrcatly increased the
expense to the Government of raising troops.'
If the authorities wished a farther suspen
si on of the draft, he wanted them so to re
commend and he would share tho responsi
bilities with them. Mr. Clark said that if the
Treasury was overflowing he would not vote
them large bounties until the Department
called for it Mr. Grimes said that in conse
quence of these high bounties in two or three
months we should not be able to mnn our
navy. Finally the joint resolution was re
committed to the Military Committee.
BEPEAL OF THE FUGITIVE SLAVE ACT.
Mr. Sumner, chairman of the Select Com
mittee on Slavery and the treatment of Freed
men. in the Senate yesterday presented a bill
for the repeal of all acts for the rendition of
fugitive slaves, and accompanied it by a re
port. By the report it appears that there arc
two acts for the rendition of fugitive slaves
which remain nnrepealed. The first was
that of X 793, which was preceded by an offi
cial correspondence, intended to show the
necessity of legislm i on. The second, that of
1850, which was introduced by a report from
Mr. Butler, of South Carolina, then Chair
man of the Judiciary Committee of the Sen
ate. The report maintains that these acts
should be repealed, whether viewed os a part
of the system of slavery, or os independent
agencies. Slavery has become doubly offen
sive now that It has risen in arms against the
Government. It Is bad enough to return a
fugitive to slavery at any time, but still
.worse when we are thereby supplying the
enemy with the sinews of war. The’slave
who has the ability to escape from slavery
has the ability to become a defender of free
dom and his country. Tie report quotes from
the article'of the constitution, which is in
these words: “No person held to service or
labor4n one State, nnder the laws thereof,
escaping into another, shall, in consequence
of any law or' regulation therein, be dis
charged from such service or labor, bat shall
be delivered up on claim of the party to
whom such service or labor may be due.”
The report takes the ground of John Quin
cy Adams in reference t j this article—that it is
invalidated by its The words no
“no person 1 * constitute the noun with
which “ shall be delivered up 1 * is the agree
ing verb, and the grammatical interpreta
tion therefore forbids the rendition. But
supposing that the grammar is correct, the
article cannot apply to ingitivc slaves alone,
as “persons* l may mean apprentices have been
claimed and delivered np nnder it. In its
primary signification it applies to appren
tice, and itls only by going behind it to seek
a secondary signification that it can be-raade
applicable to fugitive slaves. In ordinary
cases it is allowable to go back to secondary
significations. Bat not in eztrordlnary ones,
in order to defeat liberty, or limit or deny
human rights. Ton cannot do so without a
violation of fundamental rules which consti
tute the glory of the law. In support of this
view it cites the decision of Lord Mansfield
In the Somersett case, the opinion of Judge
Mashall and others. It also quotes Fortes
qne, Coke, Blackstonc, Vattcl, and
X>r.:webster,the*American Lexicographer,and
asserts that tke principle is com
mon -to every system] of jurisprudence.
The report continues, that evciy descriptive
word of the fugitive slave clause contains a
double signification. “Slave” and “ slavery**
are not found in it, but other words were
adopted, simply because they might mean
something else. - The term “ no person” can
not be applied to a slave, since a slave is not
a person, out a chattel- Then a person can
not owe service, os that implies a contract or
debt, “ There is,” says the report “no stat
ute of limitation and no prescription against
the undying claims of liberty;** therefore it
is always legitimate to reverse former decis
ions and constructions in behalf of slavery.
The report further alleges that the fugitive
slave acts are unconstitutional; first, in de
nying the right of trial by jury; and, sec
ondly, in conferring Judicial powers upon
commissioners who are notjudges. The re
port-denies the power of Congress to legis
late in regard to the return of fugitive slaves,
even admitting the clause of the Constitution
to be valid. At most, it is a compact among
the States, unaccompanied by a power of leg
islation conferred upon Congress. A long
list of authorities are cited on this point
The above is but a very Imperfect synopsis of
this very able report, which will doubtless be
read with great Interest by the i nblic gener
ally.
IMMIGRATION.
Mr. Donnelly, of Minnesota, has made an
able speech on this subject, and has Intro
duced a bill containing three features: First.
To faithfully execute the laws heretofore
enacted by Congress for the protection of
immigrants crossing the ocean. Second. To
facilitate their movements to their destina
tions after landing, by famishing them neces
sary information and protecting them
from fraud and imposition.- Third. To
superintend the disbursement of any sum
appropriated by Congress or by any State
Legislature to encourage immigration.
Tim FLORIDA DISASTER.
[From another Correspondent.!
The unexpected Intelligence of a serious
disaster to ourarme in Florida will, nodoubt,
revive the all butspent energies of denuncia
tion of the Administration, on the part of the
faithful laborers In the caose of peace and
conservatism, on the score of General Gil
more's expedition. Each malicious outcries
as (l Price of three electoral votes—one thou
sand lives,” (sec New York Herald), will
surely be raised, wherever oppositien to
the war is at work, under the mask of oppo
sition to the Government. With a view to
counteracting the depressing Influence the
worst versions of the unfortunate campaign,
likely to obtain currency, would natunuly
bear upon the loyal public mind, application
was made, within the last twent>-fourhonrs,
for an authentic explanation- of the part the
President, the Sepretary-of-War, and the Gen
eral-in-Chief, respectively, had in the expedi
tion. It was given, and! subjoin it. I lure
no say that it was obtained at
the White House. It will show that a state
ment upon the same subject made in a pro-'
vions letter, was correct in the main, that is.
in this, that not the President bnt Gener a ,
Gilmore was the projectorof the expedition, ;
and that the former had no thought of having
the arm.irused for personal political purposes.
But It will also show that my former letter
was incorrect in that portion thlt bore upon
tbc connection of the Sccrctary-of-War ami
General Hollcck with the expedition.' V
The President denies distinctly, .especially
and emphatically, tbat he has giveu.-.'Bny in
otrortlon-or —onlm-to'Oca.- OUltoero,'re
quiring, directly or impliedly, any movement
of bis command into Florida with cither mil
itary or political objects. He says that Gen.
Gilmore bad no other instructions in regard
to the restoration of Florida to tbc Union, -
under the Amnesty Proclamation, than those
sent to him through Major Hay. (They ap
peared in tbc public prints some time since)
and as they did not call lor tbc occupation of
tbc State by the forces in his Department of
the South, Gen. Gilmore must have under
taken the expedition entirely upon his own
responsibility.
It Is strictly true thot neither Secretary
Stanton nor Gen. Ballcck had any ofllcUl
knowledge or intimation of the intention of
Gen. Gilmore to enter upon a regular cam

telligence they bad of his projects was re
ceived through the newspapers. Gen. Hal

operations, addressed a letter to Gen. Gil
more. Inquiring for the authority . under
which he was undertaking them. General
Gilmore's reply was that ho was acting
under the special orders of the President or
the United states.
Gen. GUlmore'e answer was received abont
ten days ago. It was, of course, on “aston-
Ishcr” of much force to both the Secretary of
War and the General In chief in the absence
of any information, written or verbal, on the
subject,fiom the President. What their views
were relative to what they could bnt consld •
er an undue Executive interference, may be
cosily imagined: In some way'or other, they
became known outside ofthe war-office, and
the .opinion became general, in the coarse of

An immense mass meeting of electors from

quent speeches were made during the

was|lnvariably tbo signal for enthusiastic ap

meeting:

the members of the Legislature were present.
We pass over tbo technicalities of what was

Wednesday of August, to nominate a State

The Utica Herald says the Union County
Convention of Oneida, held at Borne last

A leUer received at Washington from Gen.

were cast against him. .
FROM CALIFORNIA,
The following resolution, from a scries re
cently adopted with great unanimity by. the
the California Legislature—in the Senate, 27

which he may be proud:
llfetfred, That In Abraham Lincoln, President of
the United States, we recognize purity of life, sin
gleness of purpose, the far-seeing, conscientious
statesman, the uncompromising, unsullied patriot,
tbe aim of whose life Is the preservation of the
Union, and tbe restoration of peace upon the im
mutable and eternal foundations of freedom, and
freedom only: that to his wisdom, sleepless watch
fulness. unselfish patriotism, prompt action, and
determined will to pursue the right and abandon tbe
wrong, the people of these United' States are in
debted for the proud position which they this day
occupy on the great map of nations: that when we
consider the great ordeal through which this man of
the nation has passed, unscathed and untainted, it
Is not strange that public confidence In him should
remain unshaken; and that while we revere and;
honor other andnohlc patriots who have performed '
so well their several ports in this great drama, the
people still look to Abraham Lincoln as the lustra- ■
ment selected by Providence to lead their country
In safety through nil its perils, and. restore it again
to a peace in which no element of discord shah be
found, and that we do most heartily fkvor his re
election.

[Correspondence N. Y. Times.]
Londok, Tuesday, Feb. 19,1861,
Members of Parliament are talking abont
the treaties of tbe last century, while the
armies of Austria and Prussia bare driven
tbe Danes out of tbo two provinces, and arc
about to attack them in Alsen and Jutland.
It is natural enough that Peers of seventy,
seventy-five or eighty years of age, as Prince
Napoleon remarked tbe other day at Paris,
should have faith in treaties,'constitutions
and alliances which they helped to make
when they were in the prime of their man
hood; but tbe Generals of an invading army
stuff these antiquated and obsolete docu
ments into the mouths of their cannon.
While England talks, Germany fights.
Tbe English army press makes the cam
paign in Denmark the text for a new attack
upon the conduct of the war in America.
“ See real wbatGtncrals do with real, discip
lined, European armies.’* It might be well
enough to look at the map first, and the scale
of miles appended. .Why, the field of oper
ations is about bs large' as the State of Con
necticut, tbe roads in good order, the ad
vance by roil, and the preponderance of force
overwhelming, and that not of raw levies,
but the pick of armies numbering in the ag
gregate a.milllon o( men; armies, largo num
bers of whom were in the campaign of Italy.
But our old friend is not in a good
hnmor. Be feels surly; bis head is down,
bis brow corrugated; ho is uttering low and
ominous growls, and may make an ugly rush
in some direction at any moment.
In tbe Lords, last night, Earl Derby re
newed his attack upon Hassell, for yielding
to the threats of the American Government.
Earl Bussell denied the soft Impeachment.
He had made up his mind to stop the rams
three days before receiving the urgent re
monstrances of the American Secretary.
“Then why did you say that the matter was
under serious consideration, if yon had mode
np your mindl” asked Derby. “Because,
though I had made up my mind and wrote to
LordTalmcrston what I was going to do. It
was under consideration in the Treasury De
partment,” answers Russtll “Bat bow
abont that dispatch which Ur. Adams did not
communicate to yon?”
And now the trutb'eame oat at last. Mr.
Lataud, a few nights ago, in answer to some
scorching interrogatories of Lord R. Cecil, I
believe declared uponhls honor, that thcGov
emment had had no Intimation of such a dis
patch os that of the 11th of July; bat last
night Earl Russel. pushed to the wair by
Dsnsx, confessed that Mr. Adams*, when he
had received any dispatch from Washington
vthlcb might he unpleasant, had been in the'
hebit of keeping It safi iu his pocket, while,
hc lnformed Earl Russel verbally of Its pur
port,.ahd‘this, jou will remember, is precise
ly the explanation 1 gave in one of my recent
letters. It Is perhaps, proper to say that I
did not get my information from Mr. Adams
•r any member of the American Embassy;
but It was nonetheless authentic.
The troth is. that the American Secretary
of State has played bis cords like a master,
rod hns been ably seconded by Mr. Adams,
Karl Hassell, like an old coon in the story,
has come down every time, as soon as the
gun was pointed at him, and Mr. Adame has
not been obliged to play his tramps orex
pend his ammunition. Federal diplomacy
has won a series of brilliant victories, more
important than many in tbe field. It was
this that made Mr. Mason withdraw to Faria,
lie eaw, long ago, that be bad not the least
chance wituEarl Russell, who treated him
with positive discourtesy. America could
scarcely wish for a better ally than Earl Bas
se 11, and it was by bis orders, no donbfc, that
a Confederate cralscr has just been seized-by ;
tbe British authorities at tbe Cape of Good
Hope. It is not improbable that orders have
bgcn sent to other Colonial ports, to seize
other Confederate privateers, which if this
policy Is really adopted, will be compelled to
resort to French and Spanish ports in Intnre.
Tbe news of the proclamation for a draft of
five hundred thousand men has created a lit
tle surprise, and. perhajyt more gar -
prise—consternation. A country entering
npon the fourth year of a war calls Into the
field half a million of men. In addition to pre
vious levies of a million and a half. The
idea is overwhelming to tbe English mind.
England could send into the field, to the aid
of Denmark, say twenty five, or, at most,
thirty thousand men. To raise a hundred
thousand, beyond the volunteers or militia
embodied for borne defence, would be Im
possible. Yet England so» a country of less
population raising annual levies, year after
year, of half a million of soldiers. It may
well be said that Englishmen do not under
stand America. They cannot understand tbe
practicability of raising such armies, or of
eupportiug them.
For all this, It would be wrong to say or
thick that English feeling in respect to tbe
war has undergone any considerable change.
If the Time* Is milder in Ita editorial*, it is
because of Its Intimate relations with the
Government. Its animus Is unchanged. The
T/me* is as much Lord Palmerston’s organ as
tbe Mbming frit. But Earl Russell, with the
Queen In his favor, is too strong for Palmer*-
ton. They ore not in agreement on either
tire Danish question or the American; but
• the old Tycoon can only keep power by sub
mitting his policy to that of the willful,
irate, “mcddLing or muddling” Foreign Sec
retary.
Aside from the Government Influence,
which restrains its prominent organs, there
Is no change in the press. There is no change
in Parliament. No one who has listened to
one of its outbursts on.lhc American question
since the opening of the session, from both
sides and all parts of the House, can doubt
about the very strong and decided sympa
thies of a large portion ofils members. The
Confederate loan, also, has gone steadily np
from 80 to 53. which shows that the opinion
of the Stock Exchange is somethin" like the
ftellng in the House of Commons. In regard
to Intervention, the most commonly expres
sed opinion is, thatit wouldnotdo jnstnow:
bnt that there was a time, some months ago,
when tbe Government ought to have interfe
red, In conjunction, of course, with other
Powers. The reason why It did not, might
possibly be found in that dark and mysteri
ous pocket of Minister Adams, where ho
keeps those dispatches, which are to be
shown, or only talked about, as occasion may
require.
On Fridav night we arc promised a debate
on the claims for the vessels and cargoes des
troyed by the Alabama. Lord Robert Cecil,
the other night, characterised them as “inso
lent,” There will, no doubt, be bitter
speeches; there will be cheers and laughter,
and all those expressions in which members
ol Parliament so freely indulge; bnt at the
end of a long debate, lasting till lor 3 o’clock
on Saturday morning, Mr. Peacock will with
draw bis resolution,.because he will not dare
to carry it to a division.
The Confederate sympathizers arc very
likely to have tbe best ofit in the
debate, though Cobden. Bright, and Fors
ter can always command the attention of the
Honse; but when U comes to voting, the
Government, on the American question, can
command a minority—if In no other way, bv
prudently moving the “previous question.”
But there will be no division. Tbe Alabama
claims, and all similar matters, it will be said,
belong not to parliament, bnt to the judicia
ry. The cases of the Alexandra and the rams
are now pending, and on their weary way to
:the Honse of Lords, if they ever reach that
lofty bnt slow tribunal. So, after plenty of
talk, wise or otherwise, the whole matter
will be shelved, and left as now, an open
question for future debate and negotiation.
The claims 66nbiuerea preposterous; bat
England is in the way of doing and submit
ting to preposterous things now-a-days.
POLITICAL.
The town elections in New York show a
net Union gain ot 28 towns oat of 377.
Utica, New York, the home of Governor
Seymour, has elected Theodore S. Fasten,
Union, Mayor, by 50 majority. Last year the
Democratic candidate had about 400 majority.
—At the recent Copperhead convention in
Connecticut the delegates voted by ballot for
their Gubcrnatoriol.candidate, and among the
votes cast, in the handwriting of the persons
depositing them, wese the following: Oregcr

Seymore, 0. S. Teymor, 0. 8. Semer, 0. 8.
Scmor. They’ll have a harder spell of it at
the polls.
—A Washington letter states that Gen.
McClellan’s friends are very indignant at an
article in the New York Herald , stating that
he had declined their nomination for the
Presidency. Sam Cox, who is eu rapport with
Little Mac, and may be said, without any
exaggeration, to be his man Friday—and he
certainly is his man Saturday and Sunday,
for he always spends those with him—pro*'
noimcea .it a lie manufactured out of the
whole cloth.
A Washington correspondent relates the
following : Incident of Fernando Wood:
“Fernando Wood came down to the House a
few days since In a * colored* car. A friend
who was in the car says that there were bnt
two white passengers in the car, and Fer
nando was one of them. Ho went deliber
ately into the car, and while there expressed
his contempt for those colorphoblsts who are
afraid to ride in a negro car or ashamed to
shake hands with a colored man upon the
street He claims that his views upon the
slavery question ore not affected In the Slight
est degree by any prejudice against the black
man, and that he despises the politicians who
make war upon the black race on account of
their color. Ho must then despise the bulk.
of his party.”
—The election for State officers in’New
Hampshire takes place on Tuesday next The
Union candidates are Joseph A. Gilmore, the
present incumbent, for Governor, and P. C.
Cbeney for Railroad Commissioner. The op
position candidates are Edward W. Harring
ton for Governor, and A. A. J. Vaughan for
Railroad Commissioner. Members of both
Bouses of the Legislature, with various coun
ty and town officers, are also to be voted for.
The canvass, thus for, has been character
ized on both 'sides by great activity and en
ergy, but the contest will be a close one,.
The soldiers sent from that State into the
field cannot vote, and some ten or twelve
thousand votes arc thus lost to the Union,
ticket. Last year there were three candidates
for Governor; and Mr. Gilmore, not receiv
ing an actual majority over all others, was
elected by the Legislature. This year, with
only tup candidates, the contest is neces
sarily sharply drawn, and the majority for
either teket cannot be large. The canvass
of the State by the Republican State Com-*
mittec jins usually been very thorough and
accurate differing bnt little from the actual
returns), Their canvass this year gives Gil
more 81,2687 Harrington 32,973, doubtful
1,227. dividing the doubtful gives Gilmore a
majority of 1,296; giving all the doubtful to
Harripgton, Gilmore has a majority of 69.-

Accounts from Ireland represent the tide
■of emigration as still unchanged. At the last
accounts, there were more persons waiting
for passage in Cork, Galway, Liverpool and
the great American shippingports, than could
be accommodated for a month to come—and
this, too, In advance of the nsnol season of
emigration,:which does not commence till

The principal London papers pay lit
tle attention to the statement, in the Liver
pool DaV*. Bat of February lltb, that certain
British merchants, who had lost property by
thedcpreiatlons ot the “Confederate” pi
rates, were fitting up a fast screw-steamer,
with n powerful armament, to hunt and catch
the Alabama, the Georgia, the Florida, the
Rappahannock (if allowed to leave tbe
French port and go to sea), and the Tuscaloo
sa. It Ii hinted in some of these Journals
that thisr only a pretext for getting
another war-steamer out of an English port,
nominally to act against the pirates, but real
ly as an addition to their plundering fleet”
The British authorities will be cautions, after
all that his occurred, in such suspicious cases

NEW YORK DRY GOODS MARKET.
[From the N. T. Independent, March 3.]
Trade is very Inactive, and the market sensibly fa
vors buyers, who yet do not buy more than Tor imme
diate wants. Cottor goods ore c&iicr, buyers hanging
bacx from an expectation of a large increase in the
supply of raw cotton from the opening of the Mobile
market, where there is a large accumulation. Many
cotton dealers have cone to New Orleans, to be ready
to buy early. The scarcity of workmen In the mills
and the high wages paying, are quite enough to keep
production In check; ana If holders of cotton goods
sell oat, they cannot replace for some time, even If the
expected abundance or raw cotton is realized. Prints
have been sold more freely, from a' concession In
price of i®2 cents. Stocks are small, yet are unset
tled.

Satcbsat Etkxu«o March s.—The warm, sunny
days of the past (week seemed unmistakably to tell
ns that winter with his icy friendship was about tak
ing his departure, and had It not been for the sudden
transition we yesterday experienced from sunshine
to a pelting snow storm, we might have come to the
decision that he had really and truly gone. These
transient periods oi sunshine and balmy breezes are
not generally to be depended npon. We arc.howcven
enabled to form a tolerably correct Idea of our where
abouts between the respective seasons ot
the year as we watch the growth and
decline of the several branches of commercial Indus
try that belong to each. The receipts of Hon for the
first week In' January numbered 31.065, and for this
the first week of March 9,350, and there Is no doubt
that the supply of thepreaent week baa been got to
gether with considerably more difficulty than that of
the former ooc. The diminution In point of numbers
is not more marked than It is In relation to quality,
anddnrlugtbcpasttwo or three weeks It has been
most apparent, evidently leading to the conclusion
that heavy bacon Bogs for the bnef remainder of the
present season are done with.
.3-4 82>4
..3-4 38
The receipts of the present week show a consider
able decline as compared with those of the preceding
week, being no leu than 4,259 bead, or about SOper
cent. Thera baa been an nnchanglng and active de
mand in the market through the week, but wholly for
shipping, and as the principal supply for other mar
kets appears to be very mneb dcpcnc ent on this, sail
ers have very much more tbclr own way than Is
usually the case. During the first three days of the
week tbe market mled steady and very firm bnl with
out change: with a considerable falling off in
tbe receipts of heavy hogs, the market
advanced on Thursday 15&2 Cc VIOO its on prime to
extra grades, since which there has been no farther
alteration. The receipts by railroad at the yards to
day amounted to 1554 hogs, and the entered sales to
2C87 head, at prices ranging from $3.70-37.23, bat most
ly at $0.4037.00 9100 lbs. The best criterion of the
activity of the market is gathered from tbe fact, that
the hogs were no sooner got ont of the cars than they
were sold, and in one or two Instances prices were
given, which after a cool walk roond the pens it is
most probable would not have been realized by -
we care not to say how mneh.

Sattbdat Evxsnro, March B.—The market for
Beef Cattle opened this week under more unfavorable
circumstances than usual, as not only bad the firm*
ness and activity which prevailed some eight or ten
days previously received a strong check, hut also
during the previous week prices kept declining and
stock accemulatlog so that at the close of the market
on list Saturday evening a large quantity was' left
over unsold. There had evidently been a strong dis
position among speculators, as the receipts were tol
erably liberal, to break down the market, and there
ti little doubt hut that a farther decline la prleca
would have followed but for the increasing firmness
and activity which were evinced at
the opening of the New York Market
on Monday last. The result was an advance 01 10®
15c on Shipping Cattle, at which a largo number were
sold, and as many more shipped through on owner’s
account,ln preference to selling here. Since Monday
the market has dally been Increasing in activity and
firmness for good cattle, with a supply unequal to the
demand. There has not been a corresponding degree
ot activity for Uedinm grades; the demand for these
is almost entirely confined to the supply of army con*
tractors, whose scale of prices Is necessarily
limited, and the receipts being lather too
large for their present requirements, the
value has been somewhat depreciated, for
the week, amounting to is®2oc per IDO B?. Common
grades have been very unsaleable, the only difficulty
being to discover how owners can make it worth
their while to send snch stock to market at all, as af
t< r freight and other expenses are paid,the balance on
the wrong side muathe rather heavy. The receipts of
Beef, Catllo’to-diy have been very limited, •amount
leg to hnt 610 head; the entered sales
amonnt to 756 at JSJS6IGXO mostly at sl/0
©BSXO per 100 bs. There has been a fair proportion
of good shipping cattle Intbeyaid*, among which we <
