Shall we have a War.
The recent telegraphic accounts from
Washington of the te!u-al of the English
goveronmeit to recall Mr. Cratmpton. and the
intention of President Pierce to dismiss that
functioLary, is a nmat.ir that will :eat todiflli

stroke to regain the position from which she
has fallen as the first nation of the earth.
This is ro longer speculative, btat p.itiE.
It is evident to all clear thinking tinlds that

Shall we have a war wit's England ? A
ditticulty is brewing, and a war may, and to
our thinking-very probable-is on the verge
of breaking out. although we hope if Frank
lin Pierce or his musty Cabinet. can avoid
ditfl ulty with honor, it would be better, vast
ly better, to do so. Inl the event of a war
with England, the advantage at tle outset
would undoubtedly be hers. She would block
ade our ports, perhaps destroy some if not all
of our Atlantic cities.annihilate our maratime
commerce ; force our people to depend upon
themselves for production and conrsumption,
and iniure and annoy us in many ways. But
what would be the result 2 Ultimately she
would be beaten !
A war with England, despite the blustering
of the London Times, of what the B itish
government could and should do, would be a
war with the dristocracy, and not a war with
the English people-ths masses, the laboring
masses,-and so soon as they found that their

the Greek and Caihulic Churches. In re
spectto the position of ite Eastern Church
toward the new dogma, this writer thus holds
forth:
"Wvehave quite lately scon the Pontificial
iThrone sendti ,it an nhligitory decree on a
''oem-itic question. 'Thi~. thien, in the high
est se ll.,- of the word, is a purely ecclesiastical
act: and, as the only examltl e of that kind
which has occurred tfor m.ny veurs. it merits
espi -i.l attention. This decree announces to
all Christendon. and proclaims to corul..lg
ages, the blessed mother of the Sat iour was,
from the moment of her conception. exempt
from all tainut of sin, even of original sin.
But did tnot the Holy Virgin die like the rest
of the human race ? She did. And is not
death, according to the teaching of the Apos
tie. the penalty of sin ? It is so no lo..ger;
it has beeiiwe. by a PIapal decree, indepen
dent of sin ? it has become a mere accident
of iature, and universal Christendom is con
