Tue Fall or Delhi and The News From In
dia.?In another column of to-day's paper will
be found a highly interesting article from the
London Timet, giving tho theory of that jour
nal, and, we may say, tho feeling of the British
people in regard to the fall of Delhi, and its
present and future conscqucncc. "It has bro
ken the neck of the rebellion," says the Timet,
and it may be inferred from a look at the geo
graphical relation of Delhi, on the map, to the
rest of India, that this is even so, as the Timet
states. There is no doubt now about the fato
of Lucknow, nor, indeed, of the result of the
struggle. England will completely re-conquer
Atthis, Anglo Saxons all over the world will re
joice, for it is the cause of that Germanic liberty
which from little Saxony, has been spreading
wide and deep these hundreds of years, chiis
tianizing and humanizing the whole earth.
Gov. Wises' Forthcoming Letter. We
notice that a sort of literary accouchement is in
daily expectation by the Richmond papers. It
is supposed that Gov. Wise will write n letter
in response to a quasi demand made upon him
by his organ, the Enquirer, This in all proba
bility ho will do: hut for what, or with what ex
pectations, wo confess ourselves altogether igno
rant The chances of the rash minded Gover
nor have, with n the ides of this November,
melted away like the morning dew. There
is not even a remote possibility that he will be
anything else before the next legislature, than
what he is now. Thoso heretofore disposed to
uphold him, have made haste to drop him sinco
lie has shown himself as he did in the musket
affair. Every one seems to realize that he is
not the man to represent the zealous, yet careful
patriotism of the Old Dominion. The people
everywhere, so far as we can learn, seem dis
posed to let tho Governor retire to tho shades
of "Only, near Onancock," at the earliest pos
sible moment.
We very much doubt whether Gov. Wise
ever holds another public office.
An Ionokant Prejudice.?Tho lied Repub
licans alius the mobocracy ofPhiladelphia, liavo
been holding a meeting?and as their co-labor
ers, or, we should say, their co-triflers, in Now
York did, so did they: that is they showered
down incendiary threats and ignorant preju
dices and then adjourned.
The whole animus of thcro mobocrats is eas
ily discerned when they get together. They
come with five cent cigars in their mouths and
prato about "Work or death" in English?and
"Fur Arbeit," in German. They don't want to
work?for they "resolve" that they will not
work at lower prices. Revolution, excitement,
are what are wanted. In proof of this read their
resolution about lawyers, and about not send
ing moinbers of the legal profession to the Leg
islature, about sending only Working men,?
that is, only send men who work with their
In times of peace and plenty, one can meet
with these radicals, these lecellers, in any gro
cery, or loafing rendezvous, where they sit day
and night and fsponge whisky nnil cigars, and
talk about decent, respectable, "well .to do"
people, under the captious phrase of "big bugs."
We endeavored to show the other day, in our
comments on the N. Y. demonstration, that
there were no privileged classes or castes. In
Europe, they have their third, fourth and even
fifth "Estate?"?and then lower down, 'they
have the Canaille. In this country we have
just two classes: the decent people and the
Canaille. Tho decent people are made up of
tradesmen, manual laborers of all kind, lawyers,
doctors, preachers, merchants, Ac., and all oth
ers who are usefully and honorably employed?.
The Canaille are the miserable, whisky dregs
and cigar stumpers, mentioned before, who, not
only aro too lazy to work, but can't wait rcspoc"
tably, as did that eminent specimen of tho
"shabby genteel,"?Mr. Micawber?for "some
thing to turn up."
These fiings of the mobocrats at the legal
professions, arc ignorant Hings?and as such,
aro unworthy of notice, savo only as illustrat
ing a feeling that pervades ignorant and envious
heads. Lawyers are more frequently sent to
our legislatures than any other set of men, be
cause they know more about legislation. They
make it their study. They know what the
past history of English and American legisla
tion is - they have the lights of history to guide
them, and of course, make better laws than
would thoso not likewise posted. When they
get through making thesolaws they come home,
and arc governcrcd, taxed and operated upon
by them, just as other people arc.
When, therefore, wo hear any one, either on
the streets, or cvon perchance, in a City Coun
cil, (for wjj have heard these invidious flings
?there,) talk thus about any one set, or class of
respectable men, we always set it down that
either nature or education has sadly deranged
that man's mental organism.

New England are now resuming work, among

Norwalk, Ct, tho Chicopee (Mass.) Mills, the

We find in our late Philadelphia papers ex
tended accounts of the recent demonstrations in
Independence Square, from wnich we extract
the following. Here is a copy of a circular
issued to bring a mob together:
Usurers! These vampires of socioty have
been instrumental in bringing on these dreadful
i times. These shavers have shaved our employ
ers until they have reluctantly been compelled
to close their mills, factories, and workshops,
and to dismiss us from our benches and looms.
Let those usurpers disgorge ! and set the wheels
of honest industry in motion.
These circulars, say the papers, caused no lit
tlo commotion among the crowd, and every body
was pushing and tugging in order to got near
enough the stand to secure one of thcin.
A Mr. Dennis Street said?If you are imposed
upon, j'ou should turn round and crush those
who seek to oppressyou. (Cheers.) You should
take legislators from tlje ranks of the working
men and not from among the Uiiryers. (Cheers.)
Is not a barrel of 11 )ur better than a hook of
laws, and is not a bushel of potatoes better than
a lawyer's logic!1 (Laughter and applause.)
This is the law of nature, an inherent law of na
ture, stamped on the soul. This is the great
" law of Nature and of Nature's God."
Mr. Bruce said?I hope none of us will starve
here. The law guaranties that no man in a civ
ilized community shall starve to death. But
the moral law is more powerful, and will pull a
barrel of flour out of a rich man's pocket more
effectually than a line of bayonets. Let us try
that law, if we would succeed.
A hat was passed around, by order of the
chairman, for the purpose of collecting sufficient
funds to defray the incidental expenses, which
amounted to about fifteen dollars. A large smn
ol money was collected, more than enough for
i present use, and the committee will no doubt
i see that, out of the surplus, somo of the starving
i poor are provided with immediate relief.
Mr. Henry Brunner "pitched into" banks,
brokers, rich men, everybody and everything in
general, without saying a single word about the
unemployed workingmen.
Mr. Samuel Warner came forward, and said
that he was tired of listening to such speeches
as that which had just been made. Mr. Warner
protested against all such " humbugs," who li
ked to hear themselves " spout."
Mr. Dunn referred to the very large numbers
of men who were out of employment in this
city, and said that in many cases it was their
own fault. (Signs of disapprobation.) Mr.
Chairman, said the speaker, of my own know
ledge I assert this. If many of those who are
standing idle here to-day, hsd taken the trouble,
they could have found some kind of work, and
need not be here listening to violent appeals to
their passions, and suffering themselves to he
led this way and that way hi- men who have no
real sympathy for them. (Sensation.) I have
heard it said that men vvill not work for less than
a dollar a day, even if they could get work.
Then I say they deserve to suffer. (Groans.)
In times like these, when they complain of
the hunger of ihcir wives and children, let them
work at some price rather than bring death and
desolation into their houscholds(rcnewed groans)
It was a false pride that kept men in filth and
poverty, their families in sickness, while money
was to be obtained if work was forthcoming.
.Men who would not work for sixty cents a day,
when they could not get more, in times of dis
tress liko these, ought to suffer the consequen
ces. (Groans.)
Another speaker asserted that he would rather
die than work for sixty cents a day.

meeting adjourned amid much cxcitc'nent and

Higher V?nw.
One would suppose, from an article that ap
peared in thu columns of Saturday's Times, on
this subject, that the "advocates of Higher
Law"?i. e. believes in Christianity, resides chief
ly in the "North." This insinuation of "P Q."
is unjust towards ourselves, as, I believe, this
section of tho country can show as fair a pro
potion of our population, who are "advocates of
the Higher Law," as any part of our union.?
There may be men, as P. Q. avers, who teach
the Higher Law, but do not teach the Law of
Christ?a law of lovo and charity, Even the
devil, wc arc told, can quote scripture to
suit his own unholy purposes. The use
made of the Holy Scriptures by the Mor
mons, also show how they may be perverted to
suit unholy purposes. There are men in the
South?not in Western Virginia, I imagine?
who consider slavery christianizing, and who
are in the habit of quoting, fieely, passages
from the Higher Law to prove, as they .'al
lege, the "institution" one of divine appoint
ment Will P. Q. endorse this doctrine? If
he can, I cannot; yet, notwithstanding that I
differ in opinion with the promulgator of such a
doctrine, I have no disposition to abuse and vil
ify them; the teaching of the Higher Law for
bids it I leave such a course for the Ultraists
of the North to pursue, whose fiery at ren
ders them lit champions to combat ?ith the
man who could accuse Win. II. Sewar-i of being
a black hearted man.
P. Q. gives us two or three quotations that
appear to tnu very unsuitable to d mocratic
America. "Obey the King!" "Be subject
unto your Rulers." " Rulers are to be respect
ed." The ruling power of this county is the
people, and, I trust the people may never be de
j prived of this sovereign power, but no must be
j free if we would retain this power; deprive us
' of free speech and tho first step is taken toward
a reign of tyranny. Each one of us claim this
privilege for ourself, but, too many are unwill
ing to accord it to their neighbors. This dispo
i sition^to tyrannize over their fellow men, is most
conspicuous in their efforts to blacken the char

1'fae Pall or Delhi and Revolt* in Bombay.
The London Timet, commenting upon the fall
of Delhi, says:
"The loss of our troops has heen indeed se
vere, Init not more so than might be expected
from the magnitude of the place, the despera
tion of the resistance, and the length of time
over which the fighting extended. The casual
ties among the officers have been particularly
I heavy. We will not attempt to condolc with
those who are bereaved on this sad occasion.
Suffice it to say, that their sons, or brothers, or
husbands have fallen in accomplishing ono of
the inost brilliant exploits of our history, and
in gating their country from by far the greatest
calamity which hits threatened it within our
lime. The effects of the capture of Delhi will
be, no doubt, immediate and complete. The
neck of the rebellion is indeed broken. The
capital towards which the mutineers tlocked
from every quarter, the rendezvous to which
they were evidently directed to repair, the chief
city of the Mohammedan dynasty, and the resi
dence of the mock King who had ruled in trem
bling state, during the past four months, is now
in the power of the foreign race whose expul
sion was the end and aim of this dark plot, the
roots of which have struck so deep, and the
seeds of which have been so long sown. To the
utmost extremities of India will the news bo
borne, how-, after standing their ground for
months against an overwhelming array of na
tive forces, the dauntless islanders assaulted a
city containing two or three times their number
of enemies, and carried it after a stout resist
ance, destroying or driving out the army which
held it, and sending the King to wander a fugi
tive until the certain hour of retribution comes.

and that is all. However, at the time the pres

cors from home were beginning to arrive. The

which left England on tho 17th of June.?
I lie Thebes, which sailed on the 31st of July
with part of the 88th Kegiuient, originully sent
out to replace a regiment despatched from Cey
lon, had arrived at CJalle, and will, no doubt, be
sent on to Calcutta, liy the next mail we may
expect to hear that several thousand English
soldiers are in tho country, and thenceforward
everything becomes easy. The munitneers have
now no stronghold; they are in the open, and
must meet onr troops in fair fight. The result
cannot be doubtful. AH that we have to fear
now is that these desperate men will form them
selves into bands of robbers and plunder the
country, eluding a contest with us whenever
they can. Indeed we must look to see robbery,
murder and incendiarism prevalent for many
J months to come. This is the most serious evil
that still remains to bo met. It must be met
with swiftness and severity. On this point,
however, we have our misgivings. Are the
philanthropists of Calcutta to have their own
way?careless of the opinion of the Anglo-Indi

on them at home ? We see that Mr. G. P. Grant,
I member of the Supreme Council, has just sel

A combination of circumstances favorable to
