Glory and territorial aggrandizement
are the only things the Empire can give
to France in exchange for liberty
Where a power consists of a chief and
an army, war is but the normal con
dition of its life. It is but an illusion
to believe that the Empire can be
peace—it would give the lie to history.
And the alliances with the Empire
can only bo alliances with despotism.
Alliances are founded upon an identi
ty of principles and interests. The
lite of the Empire in France require the
triumph of imperialism in Europe.
The natural allies of Louis NAPOLEON
are Russia and Austria. It would be
with Prusia if the lJheni-ii provinces,
destined, according to imperial tradit
ion, to belong to France, did not pre
vent. The statesman who allied Eng
land with the Empire committed a
crime and attempted an impossibility.
[After defining tho moral and polit
ical meanings oi'neutrality, and declar
ing that a tremendous expiation will
be required of those nations who seek
in neutrality to evade the duties which
God charges upon nations, as well as
individuals, and warning the English
against the increasing power of France
and Russia, Mazzini proceeds with his
diatribe against the French Empire.]
Imperialism is the imminent danger
in Europe—Europe should combat it,
and conquer or die. Imperialism can
not be controlled by caressing it, diplo
matizing with it, and seeking to limit
its sphere with hypocritical alliances
or conditional concessions. It is nec
essary to front it boldly. If France
persuades herself that the Empire is a
fact which no one dares contend, if the
people convince themselves that there
is hope of support aiid quarter, Europe
is lost.
Louis NAPOLEON and the Czar in
tend to aid each other to the end of
their rule in this principle, It is nec
essary to take a stand now, lest the
illusions easily created among oppress
ed people, and the despair of obtaining
any exterior aid, throw tho nations at
the foot of Imperialism.
Louis NAPOLEON and the Czar
intend to aid each other, sustaining, as
I said, the question of territory against
the question of liberty (Bisogna che
Europa sifacda hia,Uevah'ice)fov the
people and liberty. 't
A legue, headed by England, and
comprising England, Prussia, Germa
ny, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland,
Portugal, Spain, and other minor
States of Europe, should declare itself
security for the independence and lib
erty of each State, for all that concerns
its internal affairs, and protect, even to
the risk of war, that liberty and that
independencu against any invader
whatever should cut off at the root the
designs of imperialism should wean
the populace forever from its seduc
tions should make new wars impossi
ble by the overpowering military force
that the legue could send to the field,
and thus isolate the empire.
iSuch a league it is not only possible
but easy to combine. The whole of
Europe to-day is in dread of the inva
ding tendencies of Imperialism.
In the question of Italy—a question
on which now turns the peace of Eu
rope—the Legue would say to the
Emperor: 'You have concluded a
peace with Austria the reason of your
stay in Italy no longer exists. You
descend the Alps to insure tlie inde
pendence of Italy
now requires the absence of every tor
cign army from the Peninsula. Leave
it then.

of every egotism, ot every interest, ot
every wrong tendency, and of every
base passion, which drowns those in

the blow or the weakness that draws
the victim ti ruin. He cannot estab
lish, but he knows how to dissolve,
lu this remains the secret of his main
tained power. A free mid logically
moral policy would condemn him to
speedy ruin. The persistency of poor
dismembered Italy, in her desire for
unity would suffice to upset all the dy
nastic plans oi Louis NAPOLEON.
\V ar is for tho Empire an absolute
necessity. The Empire does not rep
resent a principle, such as liberty, nor
a tradition, such as legitimacy, "nor a
faith, such as theocracy. The" Empire
represents a fact—a force created by
usurpation—and this fact is necessarily
involved, this force cannot maintain

Dom. Cent. Com.
Red Wing, August 20,1850.
The Domcrats of Red Wing, aro requested to
meet in Caucus, at thu Domoeratic Club Room,
on Saturday the 10th day of September, at 7
o'clock P. M., for the purpose of electing Dele

The Red Wing KtpiAUccm, as usual, in
imitation of the St. Paul Minnesattan,
charges upon the Democratic pirty the hor
rible fact that its ticket is composed princi
pally of Indian traders and Federal Office
Now we can't seo that any man is better
or worse for being a Federal office holder or
an Indian trader. There is certainly noth
ing dishonorable in either occupation. And
if the person engaged in it behaves himself
as he ought to, what earthly objection can
it bi against him?
It happens to be sure that there is but
one Federal office holder in nomination on
that ticket—Mr. Graham—and he is uni
versally admitted to have performed the
duties of that position most acceptably to
the people of his district, ft also happens
that there is not a single Indian trader
upon the ticket. Gen. Lowry the dnly brie

are severally described as- of very slender

manners. We don't mention this for the

that subject lor we do not deem it necoskary
but for the purpose of contrasting the man

with that dignified, candid and, just course
which should characterize every respectable

article on the same subject appearing in the

reiterating a charge that he had often de

proper respect of the laws to do so, if he be

fended tho State Administration from the
charge of extravagance, and refuted, by facts
& figured, the misrepresentations made by the
Republican press and orators. Judging from
the astonished and convinced looks of the
portion of the Republicans present,
had been duped into a belief of those
falsehoods, these portions of his spaech had
happy effect. He eoncluded by comparing
the State policy of the two parties. Upon
taking his seat three rousing cheers were

We can hardly believe our" own senses,
when,we turn. back to the newspaper, ac
couhts,Jand see how inanj of our ntosVire
spectable citizens, under the lead ofpoftfea^
preachers, were carried away in the Kansas
whirlwind ot 1856. Take, as a sample, the
following, account of onerthese meetings,
in the North Church of this city, and
which^wecopy \rom.th»!fjm Yorh Times pf
March 22d, 1856, whose special reporter
was brought here, lest a true aistory should
not be given. After the Rev. Henry Ward
Beecher had denounced jhe Constitution of
the United States, as the fountain and fa
ther of our troubles, he opened a sort of
auction, and invited bids of rifles for the
Kansas campaign—he acting as the crier,
and using the North Church as the auction
rooms. It was then that the venerable Pro
fesser SilUman, after Mr. Beecher's denunci
ation of the United1 States Consitution, first
"He said, he desired to bead the list for
the procuring of a number of weapons of
defence for the party setting oilt, and there
fore Mr. Lines might put down on the paper
—B. SilUman, one Sharp's rifle." The
price of a rifle was $25?
Mr. Russel and Rev. Mr. Dutton both
rose at once. Mr. Russell speaks first—
"Put me down for one." Rev. Mr. Dutton,
pastor of the church—"One of the deacons
of this church, Mr. Harvey Hall, is going
out with the Company, and I, as his pastor,
desire to present to him a Bible and a Sharp's
Rifle." (Great applause.)
E. P. Pie:—I will give one..
Stephen Di Pardee—I will give 'one for
myself and one for jny wife.

be disturbed by the movements of the
tongue, or even rinsing the mouth, and in a
few hours it will resist the action of inasti
catication. as was proven on the spot by
the doctor, who filled several cavities in the
teeth of many dentists present.
One ounce of the osteoplastic will fill as
many cavities as two ounces of gold foil.
Another great advantage the osteoplastic
possesses over gold for filling, is the fact of
its being a non-fonduetor—no after pain is
experienced by"the patient from hot or cold
drinks, as is often the case with gold of ftfiaeg
other fillings. It also adheres firmly to the
bone, consequently is not liable to come out
of 'ill-shaped cavities. As it is introduced in
aplastic state, it saves much-time and trou
ble, and requires little or no pressure the

But the game is about out, happen what
will and we belefve that many of those who
took part in the meetings of 1856, since they
see the humbug, feel as Gcrritt Smith, the
of Northern New York, de
clared,' sonie "time ago he fert, when he stated
that he had paid nubney Sort Kansas till he
tired, and he did not know where it
had gone nor what good it had done."
The Montreal PiVt wants to acquire the
State of Maine, and says
"Portland will still" be our Atlantic ter
minus for the season, and we now feel more
than ever the effects af that stupidity, which
in settling the boundaries between Canada)
and the' United States was the means of
depriving us of what should have teen ours
—the through right of passage to the sea
