Tbs Chaiaotbr or1 Mamhal MoMaho!.
Marshal MoMahon unites the energy of a
Cambronne with tbe elegant valor of a Rioh
elieu. He Is one of those heroio soldiers who
carry into the field the easy grace that is proper
to the esloa. His is eminently the oqurage of
an aristocratic race. If with hint the soldier
always savors of the gentleman, the gentleman
noes in notning savor or tne soldier. It is
hard to describe how unlimited is the modesty
(almost reaching: to bashfnlness) of the illus
trious warrior, who, everywhere, unices in the
midst of grapeshot and musketry, seems to
take pains to hide himself from notioe. In
his outward appearance Marshal MoMahon
baa much of what his moral qualities would
lead one t suspect. His countenance is aus
tere, but pleasing, and tells of the man who
submits to duty only, and of the thorough
gentleman. Not above, but scarcely below
the middle bight, rather thin than Stool, what
first strikes one is the exoeeding' smallness of
the head. Intrepid as a Zouave, he yet pre.
serves all the elegance and Polite Brace of a
cavpxawM'auz garaet or toe old time.

Mr. Spargeon ia a recent letter his the fol
lowingf ' : .. . t j
I dot from mv inmost soul detest sUvr
anywhere and everywhere, and although I
oommune at the Lord's table with men of all
creeda, yet with a slaveholder I have no fel
lowship of any sort or kind. Whenever one
nag caned upon me I have considered it my
duty to express my detestation of his wicked
ness, ahd would a soon think of receiving a
murderer into my ehuroh, or into any sort of
friendship, asMi manstealer.1 Nevertheless, as
I have preaosed in London and not in New
York, I have very seldom made any allusion
to American slavery in mv sermons. . This ao-
count for the rumor that I have left oat the
anti-tlovrry from my American edition of ser
mons. This la not true in any measure, for,
as far u my memory serves me, I cannot re
member that the subject waa handled at all
In any of my printed sermons beyond a passing
allusion, and I have never altered a single
gontenoe in a germon which has been sent out
to my American publishers beyond the mere
correction which Involved words and not tense.
However, If any think me capable of auoh
double-dealing, I doubt not that they judge of
me by themselves, and from such persons es
teem Is not desirable. I do not therefore re
gret the loss of It. I have this muoh to
say to an who respect me In America: I did
not want to be blamiag yon constantly, whlls
there are tins enough in my own country, bat
I shall not spare your nation in future.

timated to be one million basket. The whole
champagne district is but twenty thousand
acres, and the amount of wine mam featured
for exportation is ten million bottles, or about

Hussia consumes 180,009, Ureat Britain and
her possessions 165,000, France 1(2,000, (to-

The Custom-house In New York City, through
