"War, if it take pla'oe.vould pro

Anstria, Turkey and Franee. In
all these countries taxation : has been
pressed as fair as the people can
hear it. Everywhere the complaint
of over-taxation is so lond and gen
eral that the sovereigns must -pause
cre they feed public discontent by
imcreasing the pul)lic debts. We
have seen what Great Britain owes; the
annual interest on this debt amounts to
228,000,000, or more thani laf the
whale revenue of the reain. The
other leading States are thus indebted:
Russia C122,170,000; Attstria E183,.
400,000; Turkey E6.660,700; France
12,170,000. None of these States,
eveept Great Britain, could obtain
a loat of' ay anount-certainly not
a war loan-upon anything like
reasvonable terns. Austria, Russia,
Russia and Turkey have lately failed
in their respective eflorts to borrow
money. .Nor can France lve het
ter success. No motley, no war. The
indebtedness of the great European
States renders them practically
'btund over to keep the pace.' "
Brook, editor of the New .York Ex.
press, in one of his le'Atrs from Geor
gia, hnentions the following fiets:
"Ii Savannah, in three Baptist
churches and one Methodist, there are
2,0 colored persons, one-hallf of
whom are slaves. The pastor of o(e
of tie Maptist chnrehes is a slave, and
the other tWO are free colored persons.
These churches contribute liberally for
foreign and domestic nissiAos, 1 r
home poor, &e. At the Georgia Bap.
tist Association, held in Wnr en coat
ty last Sejptember, five slave preachers
were present, and voted upon all ques
tdons presented fhr consideration. In
South ('arolina there are more than
forty thousand slaves who are chui-ch
1roembers; and in the entire South the
Batptist uimd methodist churches alread v
have 26-l.000 Slave members.

These envelopes are sold at the post

for the envolopea which is less than
plain envelopes of equal quality conid
be bought for. The post office does
not sell less than a hundred. Retail

The back of the envelopes is gummed,
ready for sealing. There is also Mr.
Nesbitts advertiso-ment on the back,
for which (as is pointedly observed by
the Journal of Commerce) there is no
charge. With thati paper, we doubt
the propriety of deforming the nation's
envelopes in this , way, and are sur
prised that the postmaster general
should permit it. Jr. Brandeth would

the stamp, four the privilege of printing
