The Allied Fleet in the Baltic.
The season for operationsby the allied fleet
in the Baltic against Russia having passed
away without any more signal success than
the taking of Bomarsuncl, which was subse
quently abandoned, Sir Charles Napier has
been freely censured. The public can never
be satisfied without a rapid succession of
startling effects. The allied armies in the
ast have been as freely condemned for not
maintaining the character of tlv. oge, and
effecting miracles with railroad speed, and
gratifying each grumbler, each morning as
he sips his coffee and munches his muffins,
with elaborate details by telegraph of bloody
ncounters and unparalleled victories. Even
Gen. Taylor and our own little army in Mex
ico, notwithstanding its glorious achieve
ments, did not ahvHs escape the condemna
tion of the censorious. The movements of the
allied fleets in ihe Baltic were, notdependent
on the ipse dixit of Sir Charles Napier, and
each stei) taken by the allied armies in the
Crimea is in obedience to the conclusion of
a council of officers. In the Baltic, the hov
ering fleet has kept an army of several hun
dred thousand Russians on that coast, that
might otherwise have done (flicient service
in the Danubian provinces ; and at the same
timp, observations and surveys have been
made, and preparations matured for a vigor
ous blow next spring, which may reach St.
Petersburg. Sir Charles Napier's has been
nearly a bloodless cruise, but not necessarily
n useless one. Indeed, the specified result of
his presence in those waters 1ms been of sig
nal advantage, while the blockade which he
maintained embarrassed Russian commerce,
and created dissati-faction among the Rus
sian people, lo which even the Czar is not
insensible. Humanity rejoices that so much
has been effected without the horrors of a
siege und bombardment, and the storming
of entrenchments.
It is said that Sir Charles Napier was of
opinion that more might have been safely
done in the Baltic, but a meeting of the ad
mirals and superior officers of the fleet, after
discussing the propriety and possibility of
attacking and taking llelsingtors and fcwea
borg, and examining the reports of the officers
who had been sent to take soundings on the
coast, decided against the attack b.ing made.
There was no doubt ot the ability to take
those places, but reasons were given which
induced the postponment of the attempt till
next spring, when operations will be renew
ed on a large scale. The French fleet has
returned, and the English may follow, but
those waters will not be entirely deserted
until the blockade enn be maintained by the
ice. (Washinton Glob?.

We ask a careful perusal of an article in
another column from the Charleston Mer-
cury, on the revival of the 6lave trade. It
is in vain to conceal the, fact that this pro
ject is to be pressed upon the country, by the
advocates oi slavery. It must be met in
Congress. At the last session, 60011 after
the triumph of the slave power in the re
peal of the Missouri restriction. Mr. Slidell,
senator from Louisiana, moved a resolu
tion, instructing the executive to withdraw
our African squadron from that coast, so as
to offer no impediment from the United
States for the prosecution of that trade. The
article, from the Mercury, is carefully and
ably written, and shadows forth a settled
design on the part of the disunionists, and
the slave propagandists to press the subject,
from this time henceforth. Itis wellenough
to understand, in advance, the process of
of reasoning upon which they rely for suc
cess. Let the North read, reflect, and, whan
the time comes, be prepared to act. 0. S.
Onc of the Turnips. Mr. L.vi Sloat, of

the common kind, and boasts of no great
name ; yet, notwithstanding its humble ori
gin, the ' covey" weighs nearly six pounds,
and measures a little over two feet in cir
cumference. That will do pretty well for
the late dry season. Who can beat it?
