Tho mouth of tho harbor, be tween Fort Ooustnutine and Fort Alexander, id a half mile wide. 2. Tho harbor, from the forts at tlio entrance, to Inkei-man's Light house at its head, is just five miles in longth. 8. The inner harbor, is a mile long by a half to three quartern'of a mile broad. The outer liarbor in from threo quartern to a mile wide. The " Twelve Apostles" spoken of in the recent accounts, is one of the Russian lino of-battle ships of that name, which, having been brought up to the head of the inner, harbor opened ou tho English lines, and was finally silenced by the Lancaster guns, which openod on her. ? 4. The Redan Wall spoken of in the accounts of the recent battles is a temporary wall erected on the south and west aide of Sebaatopol, which sides of tho city were before thought to be sufficiently protected by the rugged country that ?borders them. A " redan wall" means a wall erected to protect the approaches to the batteries, and to guard against storming. 5. The " Lancaster Ouns" arc sta tioned oast of Sebastopol, where the " mortars" are placed on the map, which is nearly four miles from the city, but several hundred feet above it, their balls passing directly over the heads of the Knglisli troops,? henco tho whistling of their shells, which are spoken of as sounding like the rushing of an " express tnnn." fi. Lord Raglan's head-quarters, as located on the map, are four miles from the walls of ^ebastapol. 7. The Turkish batteries between Kavanay and Kadiko, as marked on the map west of Balaklava, arc the batteries from which thoy were re cently routed by the Russians, and their guns turned on tho English Light Dragoons with terriblo effect, 8. It will be seen that lines of tele graph stretch from the head-quarters of Lord Raglan to the French lines, and also to various points of tho Eng lish lines. 9. The cunal marked on the map, is the conduit of fresh water to Se bastopol, which was cut off by the allies near a month since, but an abundant supply liad no doubt been provided for a long siege. 10. Balaklava, the base of opera tions of the allies, isjust seven miles from Sevastopol, froin which it will )>e seen that quite a large territory is covered by the allies. 11. The English batteries were within 4CX l yards of tho Russian bat teries in front of the roiled tower, and the right resting on the can*], and a little to the north of the harbor. The French partially invest the town, and within half a mile of Fort Alexander, of 84 guns. The principal portion of the Turks aud the English and French reserves are in the rear, three miles from Balaklava. . A '-.i ** ?i?

The two leading parties in our ouuntry, hitherto separated by broad lilien, either of principle or of policy, differ now scarcely in any thing but in tunnes. A Natvmal Bant, formerly an essential point of diffcrwnoo between riral parties, has now no advo cate*. A Protective Tarif far the *ab* of protection, which onoe divided parties and distracted our Na tional Councils, hits oeoome obsolete, as a queKtion of party policy, simply becavee a " revenue tariff" af fords incidental protection to American Manufactures. A modification of the details of our present tariff sys tem is all that is demande<l by the most strenuous advocates of protection to American Industry. The dietrbutmn of the proceeds of the public lands among the several States, as formerly claimed by one partv, and the application of those proceeds solely in aid of the national Treasury, as claimed by the other partv, have both yiektad to a compromise of tbeee convicting opinions',.#) far, at least, as to link these Suestions ae itmie* between Whig* and Democrat*. . plan formed of a compound of " squatter sove reignty," of " graduation, aud of a ''surrender to the States" in which they lie, seems likely to with draw the public lands from the arena of future party contests. The impntfemcnt of lisrbors and rivers by oongres sionsl aid, on which political parties hare hitherto differed at different times, has now become less a question of principle than of local and sectional con test; and it will doubtless be adjusted by the next Congress, upon that basis of liberality and justice demanded by the^pirit of the age and tbe true inter cats of the country Other questions, of minor importance, on which, at different times, the two prominent parties of the country disagreed, have now, by * change of circum stance*. become obsolete. Whst, then, remain a* is sues of any theoretical or practical importance be tween Whig* and Democratst We know of none; and if these hitherto rival parties shall maintain their respective organizations, tney will do so for tbe mere aaku of the tpnile of pmrrr / But new issue* have arisen having no reference to the party organisations pf Whig* and Democrats? issue* which are vastly important in their bearing upon tbe hituro welfare of the country?and which issues must in their discussion, progress, and termi nation. annihilate these two parties, which, for years past, have battled, with alternate success, for politi cal supremacy.

Our position at the aoat of the federal government, the centni of our jxilitical system, where all the rep reaentatirea of the States, and of the people annually aunt-ruble, aud where prominent men of all parties Eeriodically sojourn fur many months, is considered y us, and'bv our friends, ait the most favorable one for the publication of the oaoAX or ths American paiity i and if the most untiring devotion to the ad vocacy of the doctrines and [xilicy of this party shall give us a claim to its support; we know We shall deserve, and we trust we shall receive it.

Our position is thus defined. We shall advocate ruch measure* as will In our judgment, if carried oat, per]>etuato our freedom aud protect our native rights; nor ahall we at any time deviate from the path or duty as the organ of the Anwioan party, ana the ad vocate of Amerutin right*. We shall neither sustain nor oppoae any politioal measures on the ground that they emanate from a Democratic or from a Whig administration; but we shall discuss all political questions with the most per fect freedom from favor or prejudice, toward the pre sent or any future administrat.on. Keeping always in view the principles and purposes of the American party, we shall battle for those principles and purpo ses, while, as an independent journal, we ahall ap prove what we think is right and condemn what we think is wrong in the principle* of all public men and of all political parties.
