From London.?We have a through dispatch
yesterday. It seems the Directors are now
about to open the line for regular public busi

the great fact that instantaneous communication
exists between America and Europe.

JJEaki.y Snow.?A paper in Franklin, N. II.,

That Gamk IIas Been Tkied.?The editor of
the Savannah (Ga.) AV/m thinks that it is a great
disgrace to the people of Kentucky, that a free
soiler like Cassnis M. Clay is permitted to
live, in the State, and advises that lie be
driven out. Perhaps the editor of the A'ctc,
is not aware, that a few ?specimens of nigger
driving chivalry have tried that game once or ,
twice before?and one or two, of them paid '
for the attempt with their lives. Wo have no
doubt that if the man has the nerve to
try his hand on "Cash Clay," th it the gallant

al piece of intelligence from that government
that has been received for two weeks past, and
while it is of little political moment, it neverthe
less refutes the many rumors that have been
published about battles and revolutions there,
without number. Zuloaga is still at the head
of the government. His tenure of power, how
ever, is feebly held, and an overthrow of his
administration is almost daily expected. The
liberal troops were concentrating as rapidly as
possible, and were only waiting for the advance

Mr. Jaines A. Jones, of Arkansas. lie wanted
to go to Congress. He therefore ran indepen

was cast against him. Now listen to Mr. Jones'

paper, (he is an editor, of course,) the Ouchita
Herald. Ilis thanks to the fifteen gentlemen in
Pike county are very funny. They remind one
of the one man \\ ho voted for Fillmore in some
backwoods county of this State.

We?that is to say, James A. Jones, editor
of the Ouachita Herald, and late candidate for
Congress?are ingloriously defeated. To use a
classical, and entirely original expression, "we

evidently cast our pearls before swine. We
magnanimously, and at a considerable sacrifice
of our habitual self-respect, offered to serve a
people who had no appreciation of the offering
We can't help it We didn't make the people
and are not under contract to supply them with
brains. ir they were willfully blind to our
merit, the_fault is theirs. If they are opposed to
receiving individually a hundred and sixty acres
of land a piece, they have a perfect right to re

deserve it. If they don't want the rights of
the South "preserved inviolate," why, they may
have them piclled for all wc care. We did our
duty, and our- conscience is easy.
At the enormous expense of sixteen dollars
and thirty-two cents, we printed a multitude of
circulars, sufficient, we thought, to elect any
man, with which we flooded this Congressional
district, and a large portion of the Cherokee
Nation. We wrote to our friends, and to some
who were notour friends, to rally to our support.
But they didn't rally. We then concealed our
self as well as we could at homo, refusing posi
tively to extend our acquaintance, or to see more
ofthe public than the public did of us. With these
precautions we deemed success certain. A great
many persons wrote us that we should get an
overwhelming vote; they were not doceived?it

We are not without consolation. We are not
the only candidate that was defeated. There

Among our numerous friends, ex-Gov. Drew
is entitled to our warmest acknowledgements.

The Rimoi; ok Lord Palm Huston's Retire
ment?.<1 Pur liny Compliment.?The Dublin
correspondent of the London Times says :
"Lord Palmerston's reception by the tenantry
on his Sligo estates was only such as might have
been anticipated after an absence of several
years from Ireland." A local authority, (the
Chronicle) has this revelation respecting the fu-J
ture of Lord Palinerston:
"We are enabled to state from an authority
that is perfectly reliable, that Xord Palinerston
is about to retire from public life. He has
agreed to do so on the urgent entreaty of Lady
Palinerston; and a growing defect in his Lord
ship's power of hearing-has also had a share in
inducing him to bring his long public career to
a close. The noble lord, when he shall bid adieu
to the cxcitement of Parliamentary life, intends,
with Lady Palinerston, to take lip his residence'
at Cliffony, near this town; and instructions
have been given, and we believe arrangements
are now being made, to erect a suitable mansion
there for their reception."
[Froiu the London Star, (Jlr. Briglit'i organ) Aug. IS.]
The Sligo papers are so sure of what they af
firm about Lord Paluierston seeking the quie
tude of retired life, that they mention the locality
wliere he shall choose to reside, they speak of
the private mansion he is going to build, and
they do not hesitate to tell us that Lady Pal
inerston has had the chief share in inducing
Lord Palinerston to make up his mind on the
subject. These minute details are, indeed, de
lightful; but we are made sad by the reflection
that they may not bo true. "What arc we to
do with Lord Palinerston?" is the question
which has been heard in the lobbies of the
House of Commons night after night; and as the
problem has been so easily solvod by the rumor
to which wo allude, we can only be very much
grieved if compelled to pcrceive that in point of
fact it had no foundation whatever.
We presume none of our renders will be dis
posed to ask us why we should, lend our aid to
encourage the idea that the late Premier should
make his bow and retire from the stage of hu
man ambition and worrying politics. We see
that the directors of the Atlantic Telegraph,
as if by a great and inspired impulse, made
their first communication to America to com
promise the glorious words of the Gospel ad
vent; and wo confess that 110 sooner should we
hear for certain that Lord Palinerston had gone
to live and die in the quiet retreat of an Irish
estate than we should exclaim, "Glory to God
in the highest; peace on earth, and good will to
mankind! " For as long as I10 continues to have
a seat in Parliament, and can in any way bo
permitted to give advice to a Queen or a Minis
ter, so long will there remain a danger that the
peace of the world may be broken.

A Plan for Disunion?England, to become a
Protectorate of the Southern Confederacy-?
Virginia to be Wheedled, into Disunion
Washington, August 30, 1858.
The Hon. AYilliam L. Yancy sent to the Rich
mond Enquirer office on the 25t'n inst. a long
letter, with the request that one of the editors
of that paper would present it to Mr. Pryor, of
the Richmond South, for publication, and in
case he refused to give it publicity, to demand
it for publication in the Enquirer.
It charges Mr. Pryor, as I understand, with
having betrayed the disunion party at the South,
and with having violated certain conditions
proposed by him on the subject of disunion.
It appears that a disunion league was formed,
of which Mr. Pryor was a member. The un
derstanding was that the league should appoint
a commission to negotiate certain arrangements
with England in the way of a protectorate, di
rect trade, &c., and after these arrangements
were perfected disunion was immediately to
Mr. Pryor was at first to make a hypocritical
show of preference for the North, and, after a
little dodging, to carry Virginia in favor of the
disunion project He agreed, in other words,
that she should not join the Southern confedera
cy at the outset, but that he would bring her in
after a slight show of favor for a league with

Prisoner.?Well, my lord, my wife took up

and I've never seen her since; and I married
this other woman last winter.
Mr. Justice Maulc.?I will tell you what you
ought to have done, and if you say that you did
not know, I must tell you the law conclusively
presumes that you did. You ought to have in
structed your attorney to bring an action
against the hawker for criminal conversation
with your wife. That would have cost you
about ?100. When you had recovered sub
stantial damages against the hawker, you would
have instructed your protector to sue in the
Ecclesiastical Courts for a divorce a vtehsn at

?300 moro. Then you would have to appear
by counsel before the House of Lords for a di
vorce a vinculo matrimonii. The bill might
have been opposed in all stages in both Houses
of Parliament; and all together you would have
to spend about ?1,000 or ?1,500. You will
probably tell me that you never had a thousand
farthings of your own in the world; but, pris
oner, that makes no difference. Sitting here as
a British judge, it is my duty to tell you that
this is not a country in which there is one law
for the rich and another for the poor.
The IIotf.1, Business in New York?Symp
toms of a Jterival in Trade.?We take from the
N. Y. Tribune of yesterday, the following :
We have never known our hotels better filled
with traveling guests than at this time. We
are informed that the St. Nicholas averages nine
hundred, and that about two hundred arrive and
as many depart every day. the rooms, except a
few in the ladies' apartment?, are all full every
night. The Metropolitan is equally full?three
hundred applications yesterday beyond it s ac
commodations. The Astor is equally remembei ed
by its old-time friends. In answer to the question
yesterday, Mr. Stetson replied: "Full, why we
are more than full?actually crowded."
So far as we have heard, there is not a re
spectable hotel in the city but is doing a lively
1 bus'ness, and yet none of the Summer tourists
have returned. We do liot exactly know what
the pople will do if they come in large flocks to
the Telegraph celebration. They certainly will
not find ~ hotels empty and gaping for them.? I
We think their present condition is evidence of1
a very strong revival of business generally, and ?
lhat money matters are easy, or there would not
be so much traveling.
"CAltar me Back."?A number of Irish fami

Some of them have lived in America for twenty
years, but wish to die and be buried in the land

Bkitisii Chop Prospects? The Corn Trade.
?Another week's fine weatlier has enabled the
farmers to secure most of their Wheat in excel
lent condition. The diversity, however, of the
yield and quality is as remarkable as the season^
It appears the weight of white wheat, where it
was blighted, does not exceed 47 pounds per
bushel, and is only fit for chicken"food; while
the strong lands, in favored localities, produce
| samples weighing 65 pounds per bushel. What
| evcr 'he average tnay reach, it must therefore
be much below last year. Red descriptions are
far more equal, and have given a fairer result ill
tlie very same field where white has almost en
tirely failed. A lesson, therefore, yrjll be given
to growers as to the best dependence. It is
singular that the yield presents the same ine
qualities irt France; and we fear we may calcu
late that other countries will not fare much
Harvest work having been general, the mar
kets liavjj been thin, and millers have had an
opportunity to "buy even old samples on rather
more favorable terms. At the same time the
greater plenty of the new, in consequence of
the relatively high rates that were paid for the
first samples, has brought it more to a parity
wi th old. The weather has thus far been pro
pitious, and the importance of this fact can hard
ly be over-estimated when the rate of consump
tion is considered, through the increase of popu
lation. America shows more tone, in consequence
of unfavorable accounts in many states; but
.trance, and the near countries of the continent,
exhibit some reaction, especially Belgium, where
most excitement obtained. Less favorable ac
counts of the produce in Russia have been re
ported; and it is certain that in Silesia there
floods. So that, as a whole,'
this country, though somewhat deficient, stands
foremost?especially Scotland andlrland, where
more humid climates have lessened the effect of
drought. Potatoes continue most promising.
