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.

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 boy before this that

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,

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.

not feel anxious to leave the State, yet
wished to visit "each well remembered spot,

think I have some taste in that direction.
I shall have some liesure—shall improve

OF
The latest European advices, which are
given under our telegrphic head announce
the death, on the 16th of March, of the
Duchess of Kent, Mother of Queen Victoria,
and aunt of Prince Albert. 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.
