THE Border States will see little in the appointments by tho Administra tion to assure them of justice and con' iliation toward their section. The appointments are generally of the radical men of the party. Mr. Breck inridge commented upon this, in th« Senate, tho other day. "If," said he, the party gives up a fort, it does so with tears, and declares that it is done not with civillbut for military reasons. For the government tho most radical and aggressive men have been selected. For the Cabinet, for foreign missions, for Senators and other offi cers, the. most radical men have been chosen, The Senate had been con* firming every day men who have trampled the Constitution under their feet, and refused to rocoguize the obligation to return fugitives from labor—men who have boasted on the floor of the House of Representatives and elsewhere, that they had been personally concerned in running off •laves." This is ono way of holding the Border States in the Union and and winning back the Cotton States.

RED W1NQ, APRIL 10,1501. l-l!BI.I.««KI tJY A I N A 1 N N I S W. Vf. PHELPS, Editor. THE GRAIN TRADE AND OUR FARMERS Our political difficulties have already caused serious evils and sadly deranged the business of tho country, but the greatest disaster of all is coming. Tho constant and continued depreciation of all kinds of Na tional and State securities, have had thethat direct effect of depreciating the valua of our currency, and wo find to-day noarly two thirds of the money in circulation, from 15 to 20 per cent, below par. Here is a direct loss chargeable to the success of this section al Republican party. But this loss does not stop here. If it did, no one would be seriously injured, but it has resulting evils still more pernicious. It compels the withdrawel of the money used to buy and carry to market our sur plus grain. There is nothing to take its place, and every farmer -in the Stato must submit to a Toss of from ten to twenty-five cents, from the scarcity of money alone, on every bushel to be sold. At ten cents loss per bushel, the farmers about Red Wing even, will this Spring, lose $10,000. Is not this a pretty heavy loss for the gratification of electing a sectional President? The blow thus struck at business does not stop here. Our presentfinancialdifficulties while they lessen the value of what our farmers have to sell, at the same time in crease the price of what they have to buy and by adding to the price of exchange and the difficulties of getting money, add to tho embarrassments of the people. The Morrill tariff bill, the pet scheme of the Republicans, has become a law, and its prohibitory character has had the effect its opponents predicted. .The manufactures of England, which it prohibits, has induced the English government to retaliate. It is now proposed to levy a heavy import duty on ourgrain, which any ono can see will to tho extent of the duty, decrease the price of our grain. Here is another heavy deprecia tion chargeable to our Republican rulers. We certainly do not wish to misrepresent our Republican friends we would wish it were different but it is so apparent, that all can see the bitterfruitsof a sectional victory 'which impairs confidence in the nation's stability, and discriminates in favor of OUO section against another. It applies as well to tariffs as tho slavery question. WASHINGTON NEWS A private letter from a Republican source, gives a reficshing view of affairs at Wash ington, and of tho blunders of the Congrcs sional delegation in its recommendation for offices. We call attentiou to the "predic tion" as a result by no means unlikely. WASHINGTON*, March 2G, 1861. The appointments will distract and help materially to break up the party in Minnesota Ramsey has been ignored entirely, even to the Post Office in St. Paul. The four best offices are located, two at Winona, aud two at Minneapolis St. Paul is cut the valley of tho St. Croix is cut the north is cut tho most suicidical policy, in my opinion, ever practiced by sane men. Tt looks now as if Thompson is to be thrown over, and Gov. Randall,of Wisconsin Hedg es, of Ohio, or Luee of Indiana, will get the Superintendent of Indian Affairs. [Thompson was appointed, subsequently ED.] Lincoln is a weak man, honest himself, but will be controlled by corrupt politicians the grumbling is deep and loud The Senate dissatisfied, several of them—and old ones —swear they will never go near him again, There is a strong disposition to rebel, par ticularity by the north-east Senators. Illi nois and Indiana arc getting tho cream, both in numbers and importance. In my opinion a break is sure to come a Demo cratic Senator unwisely remarked a few days since, "in sis months wo will have Lincoln." The indications now, sro that there will be no war either the independence of the Southern Confederacy will bo acknowledged, or the "let alone policy" will be pursued. PREDICTION:—That such a vasodilating course will bo pursued by the Administra tion that tho whole slave holding States will go together, and finally the North will adopt the Constitution of the Southern Con federacy, and re-unite. It may take years, but that is the only solntion that I can see. FIENDISH.—We learn from the Salem (Ind) Times that an inhuman wretch in angovernment adjoining county to Washington, deliberate* ly plotted the the following plot, by which to put his wife to death. It seems to ac complish his hellish work it was. necessary to employ his own son, a small boy to assist him. lie set his fence onfire,.andof instructed his little son to perpetrate the deed. After he had set the fence on fire, he sent the little boy to the house after his mother, to come and put the fire out, while he (the father) secreted himself in the woods near by telling the ., near by, telling the boy before this that "I .. while his mother wasengaged in extinguish-instructions in he fire of Cromwell, with the following title: and set her cloths on fire, which the boy "Eggs of Charity laid by the Chickens! did, and before she was aware her clothes of the Covenant, and bolied with tho were in a blaze, burning them entirely off Water of Divine Love—Take yo and an^ eat." 1 'jt' to approach her from behind of coarse burning hsr to death. Th© ,ne* doe6 not state that the inhuman wretch had been arrested.—Mad. Courier. CINCINNATI, April -1. Judge McLean of the United States Su preme Court, died this morning. WARLIKE. The news by telegraph from Washington, seems to indicate that tho Administration proposes to coerce the South. This is all right, if it can be done but we fear the pol icy is adopted too late. If tho attempt is made and it shall fail, then matters will be in a worse condition than now. A recon struction will be impossible, and sectional hostility will be fanned into bitterest hate. The Republican party has.howover, noth ing to lose it has won its last victory, and lispenses its fat things to the faithful for the hist time. It may safely adopt any policy, for the scepter has departed from its grasp, and the destinies of the country will be committed to more conservative rulers. If we fight, and it looks as though we must, our people will sufferfinancialcalami ties that they cannot at present realize.— Yet grave as theso difficulties will be, wo believe it would be better to suffer them, than to sec the Union dissevered, if fighting will preserve it. But wc believe,religiously, the shedding of blood can never cc ment a broken Union, or rekindle patriotic fraternity between the two sections. Compromise and concession are tho Only means left us to re-unite tho country.— Congress- and the Administration have proved themselves both unwilling and in competent to perform this grave duty and our only hope is in a National Convention of alli the States, to amend tho Constitu tion. With anew Constitution, plain and full every right guarantied without ambig uity we may hope tore-construct the Re public, and perpetuate for many generations, the blessings of free government, which has been to this time so successful under th old Constitution. HON. CUIUS. GHAHAM. We see by the St. Paul Press, that F. A. Renz, has been appointed Receiver of the land office at Henderson, in place of Hon. Chris Graham. We don't know Mr. Renz, never heard of him, but ifhe will discharge the duties of this important postiion with the same fidelity, and give tho same satisfaction to all doing business at the office, as Mr. Graham has done, he will reflect credit upon the administration that appointed him, and deserve the approbation of the settlers in this district. Mr. Graham will soon return to his home in this place, and will now become, wc hope, a permanent resident among us. COMMUNICATED. Ma. EDITOR:--! noticed ia the Private Enterprise of the 5th of April a communica tion, headed "The Conspiracy," and signed a "Methodist." I have had a revelation since seeing the above, by which I am informed that the signer was no Methodist, and 1 was furnished with the test of the truth of the revelation. I was directed to take the communication, and select therefrom cer tain words, and sentences which the reve lationsaid no pious man would use and that I should be guided in my selection by in spiration I have performed the disagreable task, and believe tho rcvelatiun true and here is the proof of it: "With sneaking meanness," "miserable victim of crime"— "croaking 7typocrites," "too happy or too drunk—Sir"—"Libel on humanity" "detion bauched"—"villiany"—"smells bad" "sick ning as the scent of an old pipe"—"more infamous"—"come out of their holes."— Now my revelation was that none of the Methodists, outside of the Ministry,have ever been newspaper scribblers that the above language is too low for any minister of the Gospel to use it has been revealed to me that it was an enemy of the church, and not a Methodist, who wrote the article and it was further revealed to me that he was a coward and dare not come out over his own signature. Judge ye of the truth of this revelation, all ye people and tongues about Red Wing. Very respectfuly yours, MORMON ELDEQ. Correspondence of the N. Y. Herald. WASHINGTON, April 1. The President is nearly worn out by the constant excitement he has been undergo ing for the last four weeks. This afternoon he become so severely indisposed as to necessitate the exclusion ofall visitors. Even parties who desired to see him on impoitant official business were not admitted. A despatch received hero today announ ces that Messrs. Yancey and Rost embarked yesterday from New Orleans for Europe, and that Dudly Mann embarked on the same day from New York, as special Commis sioners from the Confederate States, to per fect negotiations begun some time since, by confidential agents of high character now in Europe, for the recognition by the great powers of the world of the new southern government, and, moreover, for the forma tion of anew treaty of the most liberal kind, and for ihe'rccognition of commercial rela tions. Colonel Mann took with hira a large number of documents, iucluding upwards ofa hundred copies of the new tariff bill, which will be thoroughly distributed throughout Europe. The contrast between the two govern ments have already opened thejeyes of our people, as well as those of Europe, and in telligence which has just been received here leaves little doubt upon the mind of our as to what the ultimate course of tho European governments will be in regard to the Southern Confederacy. Mr. Seward is preparing his instructions to the new foreign Ministers who arc to replace our representatives now at the courts Europe. I learn they are of the most anti-slavery kind, disparaging the Southern republic, misrepresenting its institutions and ridiculing the idea of its being able to main tain itself. It is the first time in the history of this government that the Secretary of State has sent out to Europe in the form of libels against the domestic in stitutions offifteenStates of the Union.

Tho Tribune Washington correspondent says no official intelligence has been receiv ed that Major Anderson's supples have been stopped. Authorized statements are made that the Spanish Government is not responsible for the demonstrations at St. Domingo. Also, that no orders have been issued for the blockading of Southern ports. A Washington correspondent asserts that the President is daily receiving nu merous telegraphic despatches from all portions of the country urging no surren der of any Forts, offering to volunteor to attempt a reinforcement. One man offers to reinforce Fort Sumter at ten davs notice for $5,000. Gov. Curtin of Pennsylvania, had a long interview with Gen. Scott and Secretary Seward. It is rumored that Pennsylvania will immediately put herself on a war foot ing. It is not true that the Southern Commis sioners have taken a house in Washington. It is well understood that the length of their staying here will depend upon circum stances. An alarm existed here on account of the military preparations of the Government which preserves entire silenoe. Lieut. Oilman had an interview this morning with Secretary Cameron and General Scott, and left immediately for Pensacola. John Minor Bolts arrived here with a large delegation of Virginians to ascertain by personal conference the exact intentions of the Government. Botts visited the President and advised the evacuation of Fort Sumpter. An officer of South Caro lina has also arrived to recruit for the Southern army. LATER FROM TH E SOUTH.

The same authority says a despatch re ceived from a responsible person in Char leston states that General Burt has left for Morris Island. He is reported to have'said that Major Anderson now had but two al alternatives: to evacuate Sumter in forty eight hours, or suffer bombardment. The Times' despatchos also says the southern commissioners express the belief that ajmoro judicious policy will prcvail,but if the policy of the federal government is the enforcement of the federal laws, the seceded states arc ready to resist to the bitter end. The Government has chartered the steam er Illinois, which will go to sea under seal ed, orders to-day or Monday. Her mails and passengers for Europe go in the City of Baltimore.

Marie Louisa Victoria, the decased Duchess, was a daugh ter of the late Francis, Duke of Saxe-Saal feld Coberg, and was born on the 17th of August, 178G. Her first husband, Prince Eurich of Leiningcn, seems to hane been a brutal tyrant, and to have treated his younj bride with peculiar cruelty. He died in 1814, While the Princess Charlotte, daughter of George IV. survived, her father's younger brothers, for the most part, remained single, but as the direct succession of the British crown ended with her, they nearly all took wives withing a few months after her melan choly death in 1817. Tho marriage of Edward, Duke of Kent, with the widowed Princess of Leiningcn, which was solemnized on the 11th of July, 1818, was purely a love match, as neither tho parties had a largo income, and the bridegroome's mother, Queen Charlotte, op posed it with all her power. The newly wedded couple were therefore compelled to practice tho closcsct economy. Of this union the present Queen of Great Britrin, born May 24th, 1810, was the only offspring. Nor did her parents long enjoy each others society. The Duke took a violent cold in January, 1820, of which he died in a few days—prcceeding his aged father to the tomb by about a week's space* His widow never married again. When the Princess Victoria was born, her uncles, the Duke of York and the Duke Clarence, afterwards William IV., were and being tho older brothers of her father, enjoyed the priority of succession. It was not, therefore, lor several years that her pretentions were regarded as of special importance, Her mother, however, educat ed her with great care. To her thoroug early training, many of the characteristics which* have elevated Victoria above the ma jority of Queens and to be ascribed. Since her daugter's accession, the late Duchess has constantly resided neor her, and has been greatfully repaid for the fidel ity with which she discharged her maternal duties. She was a sensible and practical, not a briliant woman, and deservedly, we believe enjoyed tho reputation of being kind hearccd and charitable. NEW Yonx, April 3. The steamer Kangaroo has arrived. The Tribune says Montgomery dispatches say sbould orders be issued to blockade the southern ports and collect the revenue there, Davis will issue letters of marqe and oover tho sea with privateers.
