AN we ark is a rid. o3b Southe rl 111Mana faatlte The indications of progress are already manifesting themselves throughout the South. Arrange ments are being made in Charleston and throughout South Carolina for securing the Soudth from its depen dence upon the North for the many articles which it has heretofore fur nished at enormous prices. At no distant day there will be a boot and shoe factory upon the largest scale, a furniture manufactory a manufactory of Kerosine oil, tanning mills, a match-making establishment, a lace manufactory, and munufactories of various useful and necessary articles for which the South has been depen dent on the North. Already there is in operation a manufactory of tin ware, a clothing estalishment. and several other enterprises which we do not at present recollect, but which have been chronicled in The Mercury. In other portions of the South the same spirit animates the people. Percussion cap manufacto tories have been established in Nash ville, Tenn., Macon, Ga., italeighi, N. C., and Richmond. Va. In Ports mouth, Va., a pistol manufactory has been established. Oil cloth is being manufactured at Atlanta, Ga., and at Columbus paper machinbry-. Extensive shoe manufactories have also been established at Nashville, Tenn., New Orleans, and Stanton, Va. A type foundry has been es tablished in Richmond, and prin ting ink manufactories at Richmond, Atlanta, Augusta and New Orleans. Thus, it will be seen that the South is really becoming independent; and if during the prosecution of the war, so much energy is displayed, how much more rapid will be the strides taken after the establishment of our independence aud our recognition as one of the nations of the earth. Charleston Mercury. Real Object of the War. We clip the following significant article from the New York News of the Sth : By the papers which arrived by the Aiiglo-Saxon we learn that the Rev. Dr. Cheever and the British Abolitioniists are looking to the Ameri can war for the most hopeful results for tl.eir cause. We publish in an other column an account of a Ineet ing in whichi the pastor of the Church of the l'uritanis declared his convic tion that tl e American war would result in til. total enancipatiin of tht al.k race. 'lThe MIrining Star, ill which tli"e lroceedin-is are publish ,.l, stroigly inidor:es the etblrts of Dr. Cheever, and believes thait "the brave martyrs who have thus far shed their blod in ,~bl f of negro freedom" have not stittered in vain. Such is the only lret.umnption evi dently tupon which the war finds any syympathy abroad. Iii any other re Speet the teaclhing of plain commnnon sense is, that tlhe contest is both ru inous and lhopeless, alnd to none is. this flact more clear than to those across the water who have explored the mysteries of war, and look upon transatlantic events with a vision unobscured by immnnediat contact or the Wnists of passio. WVe accord to i)r. Cheever the merit of both sense and frankness in this matter, and consequently, can well appreciate his purpose in administering to th0 ut ter ruin of country and Governmtdnt. His interpretation of the real motive which governs the war party is un questionably truthlful, as any other interpretation would be incompatible with any ordinary mode of reasonine upon the subject. It is to be hopea that the American people will open their eyes to the real enormity of the project before it is too late to arres~t the threatened calamunity. ,Let us at least attempt to preserve the form and spirit of the Government, though the day of negro millenium and jubi lee, which enlivqns the hopes of Dr. Cheever and his sympathisers be in finitely postponed. Prinee Napoleon.-Norther. tele graphic correspondence from Wash ington, under date of the 9th, gives the following. The Prince would not have realized a conversatior with Stewart, nor would that officer have asked such silly questions of his guest: Late this evening Prince Napoleon returned, with his suite, from Man assas. Three regiments of cavalry and four of rebel infantry held pos session ofFairfax Courthoue. It was known at Manassas that Prince Na poleon was coming. The enthusiasm was wild. Beauregard and Johnson were both at Manassas. They re ceived the Prince with the greatest possible respect. Ah their pressing invitations and entreaties that he would go on to Richmond and see President Davis the Prince firmly declined. The fortifications at Man assas are formidable and our guns, particularly of Sherman's battery, torm an important part of the defen ses. Beauregard informed the Prince that he captured sixty-two guns at the battle of Bull Run. The dead were not properly Iuried. They were simply put under ground, and some of the feet were seen above. The soldiers in Manassas were nu merous, but poorly dressed. At the departing the rebels gave the Prince a salute with United States guns. On returning to Fairfex, Colonel Stewart approached the carriage of the Prince and said: "I hope you like our fortifications." Prince-"Oh, pretty well." '"I hope," said Stew art again, "you will interfere for us when you get home." The diploma tic Prince shrugged his shoulders as he said, "I know nothing." Secessionists in .New York.-The New York correspondent of the Philadelphia Ledger says: Since the late disaster at Manas sas, the rebels and rebel sympathizers (for there are many such persons) in this city have grown bolder, and are even beginning to hoist their obnox ious colors and to speak their trea l-onable sentiments in public. Yes terday one of these "bold seceders" displayed a rebel flag from his (or her) residence in Wooster street. Capt. McVicar, of the Mounted Ri fles, observing it, entered the buil ding and ordered the man (or woman) to deliver the flag to him. The Se cessionist obeyed the order, and de livered it ,, but not before he had torn it in shreds. If this incident had happened in Baltimore or Alexandria, it would scarcely have been remarked, but here, in the great Union city of New York, you will not wonder that it sets many people thinking what next will happen. The Tenth Louisiana Re iment. When the Tiger Rifles, who played such fearful havoc with Lincoln's 'Pet Lambs," at Manassas, on the memorable 21st July, passed through this city, we thought that we had seen a specimen of the toughest and most ferocious set of men on eart h, but when we speak of the Tenth Louisiana Regiment of New Orleans, which passed through the city on Sunday, language is inadequate to give a description, composed as it was of English, French, Germans, Dutch, Italians, Sicilians, Spaniards, Portuguese, Swiss, Mexicans, Indi ans and Creoles, who in their jab bering seemed to represent a second Babel. The commander, together with many other officers, are veter ans who served throughout the Cri mean war. The commands are all given in French, r)utel, Sparish, or something else which we nnot exactly understand, but .edo be rereeuted with promptness iMd are markable degree "f preelhioi. The Mexicans particularly were -4lct of much curiosity with our citizens, most of whom had never seen one before. The entire regiment has gone to a point where they will be. likely to get a chance at Lincoln's minions, and we confidently predict that when the Tenth Louisiana Regi ment is again heard from "somebo dy else will be hurt. Lynchburg Republican. The French iron-cased war steam ship Solferino, of the thousand horse power, and carrying fifty-tw~ rifled cannon, was launched on the 24th ultimo. This makes the sixth iron cased steamer now afloat in the French navy, and another, L'Heroine, will immediately be laid down. Mr. Vallandigham's Course Indors ed.-We have the gratifying intelli gence, says the New York News, that the Democracy of the three coun ties of Butler, Preble and Montgome ry, comprising the district reprsen ted in Congress by the Hon. C. L. Vallandigham, have, in their recent conventions, which were largely at-I tended, unanimously indorsed the course pursued by that gentleman during the recent session of Con ygess. This mark of confidence and continued regard is the more gratify ing, as strenuous endeavors have been made against Mr. Vallandigham, and the result will be hailed with gene ral satisfaction by the friends of that eloquent and distinguished gentle man. Northern Items,-We clip the fol lowing items of Northern news from the telegraphic correspondence of the Louisville papers of August 12th; The United States Marshal at Boston last night arrested a person who had registered himself at the Baker House as C. Jordan, Pittsburg, Pa., but who subsequently has con fessed himself as John Williams, oft Norfoblk, and is supposed to hold a commission in the rebel army. Hte was arrested as a spy, and by orders received from the Secretary of War he will be sent to Fort Lafayette, in New York harbor. The schooner Mary Alice arrived to-day at New York. She had been captured by the private Dixie. Her captain and three men were taken aboard the private. She was after wards recaptured by the Wabash, and the private crew transferred t-, her. The Wabash also captured the. brig Sarah Star, which had no pa The Spanish Minister announced to the Secretary of State yesterda' that the seven vessels captured by the privateer Sumter had been di- charged by order of his Government. Varian E. Edwards, brother-in-law of President Lincoln, has been a, pointed Commissary of a brigade .. McClcrnand's staff. Prince Napoleon took leave of tlh. President yesterday and returned di rect to New York. It is rumored the Austrian Minis tership will be tendered to Jame Gallatin, President of the Nationi Bank. Twenty thousand Aubtrian rifih,, muskets were sent forward to Gen, ral Fremont to-day, per Adams E f press. Twenty thousand more :, ready here will soon follow. It is stated that leading banker. have been invited to meet the Secre tary of the Treasury at the residentc of Mr. Cisco, this evening, with re rorence to arrangements for taki,~ the lately authorizeod loans.
