It often happens that the greatest events are brought ahout by causes which the wisdom of men do not forsee or understand. The wisdom of Provi dence in guiding the affairs of the world is usually hidden from men, so that while they are carrying out the pur poses of the Most High, they arc in entire ignorance of the ends they are accomplishing for the weal of mankind; for all things designed by the great Ruler of evenls.ultimalely tend to bless and benefit the human race, however "dark and mysterious" to the short sighted wisdom of men they may ap pear whil6 being enacted. When, in the "fullness of time," the period for the great Reformation which commenced in the latter part of the first quarter of the sixteenth century had arrived, and the days of the "Ini quity tbatworketli abominations" were to be numbered, God opened the way for the dispersion of the thick daikness which overspread the world as a dense cloud bymeans almost unknown to men. In her arrogance, the Romish Hierarchy went forth to do "whatso ever she pleased," and her indulgences were sold as common marketing in the streets or as a huckster would dispose of his merchandise in his stall or at his stand. They were advertised for sale, and rich were compelled to buy them or suffer the fires of purgatory or hell, or both. Thus were men induced to sin, because they could purchase abso lution from the hands of the priest. And the indulgence venders became so presumptuous as to grant pardons in advance of all the sins a man should eomait in the next six months or twelve months, no matter how great their terpitude, whether murder, theft, rob bery, perjury or what else dark and damnable a villian might plan for re venge or Iincestiousness! Armed with a free and full pardon from the priest, which he had been taught to resard as of the utmost value, aud entirely valid in the court of heaven, the man had no restraint in carrying out the evil incli aations of his heart. An obscure monk, the son of poor parents, saw the enormity of this crime on the part of Pope and priests, and enounced it in strong terms. But Luther bad no intention of fighting the Pope. On the contrary he at first defended him, and charged the indul gence pedlars with the courrupt prac tice condemned. But without his own knowledge of the fact, God was leading this unknown monk to the light, that he might become the instrument of the great work which He had to accom plish through the instrumentality of me. Step by step Luther w as led on, until at last his eyes were fully opened. He stood up before the princes, priests - aad potentates at Worms, a hero such as the world had not produced for cen turies. But it seemed a small thing at first that be should denounce Tetrel and his indulgences, and he a small instrument io accomplish lh mighty work of God. But he measured arms with the Pope, and came off victor -et not he, hut God who used him. The darkness of Ihe thousand years of superstition and misrule in Church and State was scat tered and the sun of Truth once more Seamed upon the world. So when this New World was to be peopled with the men who were to give chancier to its institutions and become the pioneers to a new Canaan for hu manity. Heaven made use of the wick edness of man to accomplish his pur poses. It was apparently a small thing for the haughty Elizabeth of England, who wMied to be a kind of Pope of Protestantism, to banish John Robin sou and his small congregation of poor but sincere worshipers, after hanging two pastors in the mast brutal manner. But Go was leading this little band to a-uoble destiny. It was a- happy day for America when at Delft Haven, the mall party went on board the Speed well to sail for their new home, while Robinson, who had exhorted and coun seled with them all night, knell on the sand of the beech and with uplifted hands and streaming eyes, committed them to the merciful care of the Ruler of winds and waves and prayed for their prosperity, while the breezes which filled the sails of the vessel, toy- ed with his silver-white locks, which j hang ia long waves upon his shoulders, Afterwards the Mayflower landed these Pilgrims upon the bleak shores of New England; and their future history is this great nation. How small the bfgluBtng how gicnt the result ! It at first seemed a little thing that a few discontented politicians should be come excited over the result of a Presi dential election, and that they should talk of secession and rebellion; but see to what destructive consequences this wickedness has reached in so short a time ! It does not now appear what effect this conflict will have upon our national sins. At present, Slavery ha? nothing to do w ith the war, except as it was made a pretext by the South for wag ing a conflict; but this small beginning may terminate in its downtaii. uou may be opening the way for its extirpa tion in the folly and madness of its supporters as He did the downfall of the Papicy by the excessive impudence of its own strength and the arrogance of its power. We have a firm belief that the all- wise Disposer of events is guiding and controlling the events in this nalion.and that they will ultimate in final bless ings, however grievious they may now appear. Rut it may bo that for our sins, we must buffer n baptism of blood, before the end comes. Ma' Heaven spare us and lead our Republic to a glorious destiny. And may His mercy spare us, while His justice shall chastise. i i BRITISH DUPLICITY. The recent action of the British gov- 1 eminent in reference to the existing rebellion in this country shows that the rulers of that country are essentially selfish aud double-dealing in their pol icy. While professing the utmost regard for our government, and the United States in general, the Queeu'6 cabinet go to work and frame a procla mation the only design of which seems to linrn hppn tn ritv aid tn ttio rpfipls by acknowledging them as belligerents. and entitled to (he rights of nations in war. This was but one step short of .acknowledging the independence of the Southern Confederacy, and was an act of flagrant outrage upon the govern ment at Washington, and an insult to this Republic. We had a right to expect better things of the English; and, indeed, the people of England are liberal towards America,aside from Slavery, and would so resent any insult or indignity offered as, as to render it necessary for an offending Ministry at home to resign. I is ieported that the recent action of the Queen's council raised such a strong feeling of indignation among the people of the Kingdom, that nothing but the precarious health of Victoria saved the Cabinet. The people love their Queen, and since the death of her mother, she is reported to have shown signs of insanity ; and it was feared that the re-construction of the Ministry at this time would seriously affect her system, and probably hasten an unfor tunate crisis, and so the matter rests at present, liable to be brought up at any time. This may or may not be all true; but the fact that the report is circulated, shows that there is disaffection among the people of England, and that they are not disposed to see our government or people insulted or injured by British influence. But that the British government should take so strange a stand when she is more liable to find herself in the same condition than any nation on the face of the earth, is passing strange. Here is Canada immediately on our holders, with strong ties of affinity which naturally draw her towards the Union ; yonder is Australia, a remote province, with thousands of disaffected people, a large number of whom hate heen banished from the mother country and forbidden to return for a long period or for life ; and away off in the orient are her possessions in India, where millions of people only want a show of a chance to rise again and throw off the British yoke. Suppose that any of these countries should revolt, and our government, and other governments should give them aid and comfort by acknowledging them the rights of na tionality so far as the war was concern ed, what must be the re3ult ? It is exceedingly doubtful w bother England could conquor or retain a single one of her foreign dominions. Here is Canada by our side, with commercial- interests almost .identical with our own, and united to us by rail--roads and navigable waters evidently by natural situatioa much more a part of us than of Britain. How easy it will be for us to retaliate, should oar neighbors of the north conclude to assert their independence ! We could at once regard them as belligerents nod England could not open her mouth; for she sets us the precedent. And to give the Canadians the benefits of such an acknowledgment on our part would be tantamount to insuring their indepen dencc; and it is not at all unlikely that the memory of the present times will not pass away beforo the British gov- 'erumenl will Cud that they hate given Canada away by their foolish course in the present crisis of our affairs. There is no excuse for the course the British Ministry has taken. It appears to have no foundation except in the jealousy, envy or selfishness of the Cabinet of the kingdom; and its read ing force may yd shake that empire to its very foundations, and dismember it beyond the possibility of recovery. Already has the government ot Brit ain discovered its error, we may judge from the tone of the recent dispatches; but her mistake cannot be wiped out. She may, and doubtless will, be less favorable to the rebels of the South than if the error had not been committ ed, so that we shall probably be rather benefitted than injured by it ; but after all the record has been made up, and time cannot blot it out. The effect must follow the cause, and it will tell with fearful effect when the day of retribution comes. Altogether, the position of foreign nations seems very favorable for U3. The rebels are likely to receive no sub stantial aid from abroad, and King Cot ten must fall by the hand of his own friends, who have wickedly raised n storm about him which must prove fatal to his reign and dominion. -m- Pole Raising at Col. Owens'. The Oskaloosa Guards, and many citizens, on Tuesday afternoon, the 2d instant J went by invitation to Col. Owens' re sidence, a mile and a half from town, to assist "mice host" to raise a Union pole and flag. Most of the Guards were in full uniform, and made a a err respectable appearance, performing their military evolutions aud maneuvers with much credit to them, considering the short time they have been drilling. A number of ladies were present to 'cl'!fr ' " with t,ie!r proving smiles. After the pole was raised, the Guards formed iu front of the Col's re sidence, when John' W. Day, in behalf of the ladies present, with a few im promptu remarks, presented for the occasion the flag which they were ex pecting soon to unfurl to the breeze. Capt. McClcllan mado a happy response in behalf of the Guards. John W. Day proposed three cheers for the Stars and Stripes, which were given with a will. On the suggestion of Noah Leaverton three loud huzzas were giv en for Gen. Scott. Col. Owens pro posed three cheers for Gen. Lyon, to which, the ladies waving their handker chiefs above their heads, the crowd re sponded with threo enthusiastic sheers. Three cheers for the Union were given most heartily. The Guards then marched to the pole, where the Star Spanglrd Banner was run up the flag staff amid the repeated firing of salutes by the military company. The exer cises passed off pleasantly, and all par ties returned to their homes more zeal ous for the Union than when they went. Heaven bless the patriotic Col. and his equally patriotic lady. A man by the Dame of Hill, a danc ing master, was hung by the regulars at Kansas City the other day, for at tempting to poison the soldiers. The Board of County Commission ers were in session on Tuesday. (&mml I THE LATEST NEWS RECEIVED BY MAGNETIC TELEGRAPH, To the Daily Comervatirc nml Daily Time?. No Peace Offer to be Entertained Grow to be Speaker Gen. Lee, of me tronieaeraie Army, Resigned PriYattert Captured. WismifCToif, June 30. The Presidcut has determined not to entertain any proposition of peace until the rebellion is entirely subdued. Army officers declare il impossible to make a forward movement until more wagons arrive. 1,000 will be furnish ed on the 15th of July. The Times special says the contest for speaker is becoming animated. It is thought Grow will- be successful. This would rule out Forney for Clerk, who would give his aid to Blair or Colfax-. There is but little doubt that a new clerk of tlie Senate will be select ed in place of Dickens, notoriously bostile to the Government, his removal being a necessity. ' The last time Beauregard was heard from, he stated publicly to his troops they should be at Alexandria last night. W shall not be surprised if the 4ih of j July was celebrated by driving in tho rebel pickets, and clearing out Fairfax Court House'. ..- Tho Herald's special says it is re ported that the misunderstanding be tween Jeff. Davis and Generals Beaure gard and Le, (hat has'heen staler! for sometime past, has occasioned the lat ter to resign his position. It is certain that private letters from Gen. Lee, to his old associates in the U. S. army, ho disclosed his dissatisfac tion in the rebel service. It is said the steamer Freeborn was so severely treated in tho recent con flict, that she will be condemned. She is a new boat. t t It appears that Government does not regard the occupation of Harper's Fer ry, at present, as of any great impor tance, now that everything has been destroyed. The Massachusetts first regiment has applied to the War Department to per mit them to celebrate the 4th July, somewhere in Virginia. The answer is not yet known. A letter in the World from the steam er Wyandolt, off Fort Picken's, an nounces the capture of tho privateer steamer, W. It. Webb, by the Niagria, when iu the act of capturing the brig East, of New York. It also captur ed the English bark Etna, with a cargo of rifled cannon for the rebels at Pensa cola. Exciting Times 'in Baltimore. Baltimore, July 1, A. M. Since two o'clock this morning, start ling proceedings have been going on here. Detachments of artillery and infantry hnvo been sent to various sec tions of the city, and arc now posted in Monument Square, Exchange Place, in the 5ih Ward, Broadway and other points; before day light all the members of the Board of Police Commissioners, except tho Mayor, were arrested and sent to Fort Mcilenry. It is said that a plot has been discovered of an intend ed outbreak. Gen. Banks has just issued' the fol lowing proclamation : Head Quarters Department,) Annapolis Ft.McHenrt, July l.j In pursuance of orders issued from the Head Quarters of the army at Washington for the preservation of the public peace in this Department, I have arrested, and do now detain in the cus tody of the United States, tho late members of the Board of Police. After public recognition and protest against tho suspension of their functions they continued theirsessions ilnily upon a forced and unwarrantable construction of my proclamation of tho 20th ult. They declared that the Police Law was suspended, and the police officers aud men put off duty for the prcsent.intend ing to leave the city without any police or protection whateter. They refused to recognize the officers and men neces sarily selected by the Provost Marshal for its protection, and held subject to their orders now aud hereafter, the old police force, a large body of armed men, for some purpose not known to the Government, and inconsistent with its peace and security. To anticipate any intentions or orders on their part, I have placed, temporarily, a portion of the fcrce under my command, within the city. I disclaim on the part of the Govern ment I represcut, all desire, intention and purpose to interfere in nny manner whatever with the ordinary municipal affairs of the city of Baltimore, and whenever a loyal citizen can be named who will execute its police laws with impartiality and in good faith to the United States, the military force will be withdrawn from central parts of the municipality at once, aud no soldiers will bo permitted in the city, except under regulations satisfactory to the Marshal; and if any so admitted violate the municipal law, they shall bo pun ished by the civil tribunal. N. P. BANKS, Major General Commanding. i i Latest from Claib. Jackson. Tho followiug dispatch gives the latest intelligence from the fugitive Governor: Stracose, Mo., Juno 2G. A gentle man arrived here to-day "from tho south says he met Gov. Jackson with IT. M. Parsons and some 1,200 troops, at Pomme de Torre bridge, 11 miles south of Warsaw, on Sunday morning at ten o'clock, moving southward. They had four cannon and about twenty-five bag gage wagons, some of which were stage coaches. He report that Charles B.tbcock,late agent of the Overland Mail Company ,at Warsaw, joined Jackson's forces thero, and furnished him with ten full teams ocionging to the mail company. A good many horses were drowned in crossing the Osage. How to Ventilate Stacks British farmers ventilate their stacks as follows; They fill with straw a bag, say 3 ft high and 20 inches in diameter, placo it vertically in tne center, and stack around it. As the stack rises they lift the bag. and so on to tho top. In this way a chimney is formed in the center of the staek, into which the' steam and gases generated find their wav and . cape readily. This method nMit h adopted in stacking grain, hay and corn loaaer in mis country. j. The Excitement in Baltimore. ; We give below two dispatches which ought to have reached us two days ago; It will be seen that Gen. Banks is bring ing the traitors to time: Conservative. Baltimore, June 27. At 3 o'clock this morning, Geo. P. Kane, Police Marshal of this city, was arrested at bis home by order of Gea. Rnnks,and conveyed, to Fort McHenry, where he is now held prisoner. " J v Gen. Banks has issued a proclama tion nominating John R. Kenley, of the Maryland regiment; Provost Marshall also superseding tho powers of the Police Commissioners. Mr. K. is to exercise supreme control over the police department, until some loyal citizen is to act as marshal. The proclamation gives as the rea son for the arrest of Kane, that he is known to be aiding and abotting those in armed rebellion against the Govern ment, and is at the head of an armed force, which fho had used to conceal rather than detect acts of treason to the Government. Considerable excitement exists, oc casioned by the arrest of Marshal Kane. Union men are pleased, but secession ists are indignant. Col. Kenley, the Provost Maishal, waited on the Mayor and Police Commissioners, when the latter asked time to consider. Kenley replied that liis orders were immediate. He then proceeded to the Marshal's office, taking possession. The Com missioners then directed the officers to obey tho military authority, but de clared their intention to protest against the action of tho Government. later. This afternoon the Police Commis sioners issued orders disbanding the police They also issued a protest, signed by the Mayor as ono of the board. Mr. Kenley has sworn in a new force. A Rebel Woman. Mr. Forney writes to tho Press that Miss Panella Cunningham, of South Carolina, who succeeded in begging 70,000, in the Free States to purchase the home of Washington, is now "plea santly located at Mount Yernon in com fortable nnd safo communication with tho Secession leaders, nnd has been paying many a recent visit to Washing ton for tho purpose of ascertaining how far she could damugo the Free Slates and assist the armed traitors of the South." "She has a delightful sum mer retreat, where she can look upon her broad and fertile acres, can receive her friends like a very princess, nnd by means of the easy and forgiving tem per of our Washington rulers, can for ward to Davis it Co., tne latest intelli gence from the Federal metropolis. As to those who paid their money for the purchase of the home and the grave, are Uiny not Northern barbarians, in feriors, mudsills ?" Movements of Gen. Ltox. We find the following in tho St. Louis Democrat of the 27th inst: "Gentleman who arrived from above, yesterday evening, by the Pacific railroad cars, give us some reliable information in regard to the movements of Gen. Lyon. The General left Boonville yesterday with his full force, including the Iowa regi ment under Col. Bates, for Southwest Missouri, intending to join the forces from Kansas City and Rolla at Spring field." The Nnshu.i (Georgia) Gazette, in giving a sketch of Gen. Beauregard's life, discloses some suggestive facts in regard to that "big man me" of the Confederates : "Last Fall Major B. was appointed Superintendent of the West Point Mil itary Academy. The intention teat to influence the Cadets in favor of ihe South. Ho had bcarcely been appoint ed to that position when tho order was revoked, and he entered heart and soul into the secession movement. That he should have been chosen a General, is but n natural acknowledge ment of his talents, and a recognition of his influence in Louisianna. Withal, i; iji . . u wcuua was a conspiration a very important one." Good FOR Reeder. Ex-Governor Andrew H. Reeder, of Pennsylvania, has declined the tendor of a brigadier generalship in the army.oa the ground that he docs not consider himself quali fied to fulfill the duties of the station. What Gen. Scott Sayi. Gen Scott has declared to Senator irumbull, Hon. S. Colfax nnd others, within a week, that the rebellion would be crushed inside of eleven months from the tinv the rebel flue was hoisted over Fort Sumter. Ho expects to have tho rebels whipped into obediuuoe to the Constitution and the laws, before j me nrst year or Lincoln's term expires. What Gen. Scott promises ho rarely fails to perform. The Western army is expected to be in possession of Memphis in July per haps in timo to celebrate Ihe glorious T if ?M fourth: , Tho-Eastern arrav will be in Richmond by the '4th of July. The rebellion in, Virginia and Tenuesseo wiu nave its; hack broken and perhaps, brains knocked out. before "doa.dats," The wcrk of pacification in these Suites will be completed before the first frost is auiHHin,ai wuicn time tne two granu armies win commence moving oouiu ward, driving the insurgents before them. Uhicago IribUne. m Cavour. The foreign papers generally are, as might be expected, filled with biograph ical notices and eulogiums of the late Count Cavour. Even the clerical jour nals do justice to his memory. The Armonia, the most violent of the reac tionary organs, bears testimony to his worth in terms that should be remem bered : "As political opponents of the illus trious deceased as long as he was pow erful, we strongly and freely combated his ideas and his errors. Over hrs corpse we will remember only the mag nificent endowments of his nature. It will belong to history to judge him ; to us (o lament him and deplore his loss. Wo havo often experienced his good ness of heart. After the suppression of the convents a monastery in Liguria was suffering from hunger. JVVe pri vately appealed to his charity, and he instantly sent 2,000 francs to the sisters of that convent. Moieover, he wrote us with his own hand a long letter which proved his goodness of heart. We know that in Turin he was in the habit of relieving necessitous persons. We have had numerous proofs of his loy alty. Charged by an archibishop to forward a petition to an august person age, wo addressed it, by letter, 'to the loyalty of Count Cavour.' Not only was the petition presented, but it was also published by Count Cavour's means, although it was in the main a censure of his conduct.. On another occasion we ventured to send him the first copy of a book which combated his policy; he accepted it, and thanked us in a gracious letter. And lastly, we. owe to Count Cavour the liberty ih.it has been granted us of collecting St Peter's pence." From Virginia. A family consist ing of two men, three women, and three children, passed through this place westward on Monday of this week, from Virginia, whence they had bee a driven by soccsaionisle. With the exception of two of the children riding in a small dog-wagon, the family wero on foot.and presented n distressed appearanca. Miami ( O.) Visitor. Scorbutic diseases are the parent stock from which arises a large propor tion of the fatal maladies that afflict mankiud. They are as it were a spe cies of potatoe rot in the human Con stitution, which undermines and cor rupts all the sources of its vitality and hastens its decay. They are the germ from which spring Consumption, Rheu matism, Heart Disease, Liver Com plaints, and Eruptive Diseases which will be recognized as among those most fatal aud destructive of the races of men.
