England and her Aristocracy.
The war in the Crimea seems destiued to
accomplish a much more important object
I than that of humbling tho power of Russia,
j The loss of a fine army, and the inglorious re
| suit of the last campaign, have roused a
spirit of inquiry in England which threatens
| to break dow n the barriers of political privi
lege, within which the aristocracy of that
country have so long entrenched themselves,
and to open a path to distinction to men of
talent, irrespective of title. Hitherto the
principal offices of government have been
held by a few aristocratic families and their
| immediate dependents; and this has been tole
I rated so long that the privileged few seem to
regard themselves entitleto perform the min
isterial functions by a sort of prescriptive
right. But their absolute unfitness to eope
with great emergencies, has become, of late,
so glaringly apparent, as to call forth the de
nunciations of the press, and rouse the oppo
sition of the people. Tho previous reforms
in England took the shape of gradual exten
sions of the elective franchise, and the red
ress of local grievances. The present move
ment is aimed at the privileges of the aris
tocracy, and demands the introduction of the
middle class into the higher councils of the
nation. That such a change, in spite of op
position, will shortly he effected, we have not
the least doubt; nor do we doubt that the
elevation of new men to stations of political
eminence wi.l result in giving a proportionate
degree of liberty to the people at large, and
while it gives increased stablity to the govern
ment, will infuse new vigor into the adminis
tration of its affairs.—Halt. Pat.
Knnsas Matter*.
The second election for three members of
the Territorial Legislature of Kansas, belli at
Leavenworth on thethM May, resulted in the
choice of the pro-slavery candidates, the vote
for that ticket being •"><>•’> against 140 for the
freesoil ticket. The “Kansas Herald,’’ a pro
slavery paper, says that this election passed
off quietly, without awy disturbance, and that
none other than legal residents voted. The
same is said, by the “Herald of Freedom,”
of the special election at Lawrence, where
the freesoil candidates w.re elected almost
unanimously. The w hole number of votes
polled in this district was 308, all of which,
except some twenty scattering, were givou
for the regular freesoil ticket.
Naval.
Commodore McCauley, after giving the
necessary instructions for the proper dispo
sition of the several vessels of the home
squadron, has been ordered to proceed in
the San Jacinto to New York, when Captain
Paulding will assume the command of the
squadron. The San Jacinto is to return
again to this squadron, to which will bo ad
ded a first-class frigate.
The Jamestown, the flag ship of the Afri
can squadron, which was temporarily at
tached to Commodore McCauley’s squadron,
has been ordered to proceed to her destina
tion.

Queen Victoria’s state coach is bullet-proof,

expected, iu an open one, Louis Napoleon
proceeded en his late visit to Guildhall to re

The Fate of the Principalities.
The continued and bloody contest before
Sebastopol has concentrated, especially in
this country, the interest felt in the Euro
pean strugg.e, almost exclusively upon the
tcsult in the Crimea, and the Principalities,
which first became the theatre* of war, and
the change in their position which has re
sulted from that fact, have passed out of
view. But though the Principalities have
lost their interest to those whose attention
is strongly directed to the immediate field
of battle, they are still an important item in
the complication of affairs between the con
flicting parties, and are apparently about to
be offered up as the gift or bribe which is to
decide Au>tria in her adherents to one or the
other parties; and it is to the disgrace of the
allies, that in pursuing this course, there is
no proposition to consult Turkey in regard to
the fate of what were previous to the war,
most important provinces of her empire.
When Austria assuming the position of
peace maker, took armed possession of Wal
lachia and Moldavia, the prediction was made
though scouted hy those w ho believed that
the assistance of tfie allies was to be render
ed to Turkey on a generous impulse that for
bade the possibility of such a conclusion,
that the Porte had parted finally with those
provinces, and that the temporary occupan
cy by Austria, would be improved so as to
add them permanently to her Empire. But
this prediction is now in such rapid course
of fulfilment, that each succeeding steamer
may be expected to bring the terms of the
arrangement. Already vve know’ that Aus
tria is for the allies or Russia, according to
which can give her best title and the great
er warrant of security in the possession of
these disserved |>rovinces of Turkey, and
Unit each are bidding for her co-operation
with the implied understanding that her
greediness for new’ territory is to be satisfied.
It is with reference to this known desire
! of Austria, that the notification of the Czar
that lie is prepared to adhere to the eonces
I sions made in tfie Vienna Conference only
upon condition of the complete neutrality of
Germany, is to be understood. The Vienna
Conference having failed to accomplish its
entire purposes, what it did do was of conse
quence void, but Russia now comes forward
and says that the concessions she then made
she is prepared to abide by, but the price to
be paid for them is the entire neutrality of
Germany. All these concessions were di
reeuy oeneuouu to uermany aim to Austria
especially, ami the astuteness with which
; Russia developed her intentions in these re
spects, and broke off the negotiations at the
moment the point was reached at which she
had to make concessions to England and
France, shows how superior was her diplo
macy, whilst the effect since secured in de
taching Austria from the allies and in
strengthening the Russian proclivities of
Prussia, has proved that she had well adapt
| ed her means to the end sought.
Should Austria accept these concessions
of Russia, and with her acquiescence con
tinue to retain possession of the Provinces,
a crisis will arise for testing the good faith
! of the allies toward Turkey. Russia having
• withdrawn, by her concessions at \ ienna,
! tiie claim to an exclusive protectorate over
; the principalities, there will he no reason
why Austria should continue an armed oc
j cupaney that was originally submitted to as
j a protection against the invasion of the Czar,
and every principle of fairness will require
France and England to insist upon their re
stitution to Turkey. Rut we much question
whether those nations will have the nerve to
pursue that course, which would precipitate
Austria into the arms of the Czar. Austria,
according to the Paris correspondent ot the
London Times, lias plainly signified her in
tention of maintaining a strict neutrality or
of declaring war on the condition that W a!
; lachia, Moldavia and the l>anubc be ceded
to her absolutely. Russia quietly acquiesces
I in her occupation of the provinces and hv
j the concession of the free navigation of the |
Ranul e. intimates her willingness to recog- :
nisc that as the natural boundary of A us- j
! tri:t, tht* price of these concessions being her
strict neutrality. Justice will require the
I allies to insi>t upon the restoration ot these
provinces to the Sultan, under a joint protee
i t«»rate, hut the policy of conciliating Austria,
; which has hitherto prevailed, will dictate
the expediency of allowing Austria to des
1 poll Turkey ot the very territory that gave
i cause for the first hostilities. 1 hat policy
and expediency, rather than justice and
! honestv will prevail we have little doubt, hut
the fact must disgrace England and France '
! in the eves »>f the world, and deprive them |
of what little sympathy may have been telt 1
lor them in their struggle with Russia.—
