Notwithstanding its long tarrying by tho -way. I hasten to thank you with all my heart, aud to assure you that ita kind words and generous sentiments bave lost none of their force by lhe lapse ol time, I hope you will not think me insensible to the honors with which you tell me I would be welcomed In Europe, if, at, present, I appear deaf lo your assurance of their high import. It is true that the role which, up to this time, I have been permitted to ploy In tbe great drama which my country is enacting before tho world, Ib humble. Bt ill our cause is just: to me the blood of my children has consecrated it, it is precious to my heart. All I have and all I own are in it therefore I prefer to tarry here—a refugee from my home and my little ones—watching and waiting. That we have no navy is also true. Nevertheless, something may turn up. Chance may throw opportunity in my way. If so, here I am in place; and here I prefer to tarry, content to wait upon events, and patiently to bide my time. It has now been but little more than a year since this war wqb forced upon us. We, on our pari, bad to commence it without en army, without a navy, and even without a governmental organization. On tbo other hand, the enemy, surrounded with all the appliances of war, and complete in his organization, arranged his legions for battle, and rejoiced in his strength. Wo found ourselves, purely an agricultural peo. pie, cut off from the world and suddenly thrown upon our own resources, while he was backed by all tho appliances that the workshops of Europe could supply, or that commerce could furnish.— Notwithstanding this, our people bravely resolved to withdraw from all political association with the North, and to accept the consequences, be they what they may. There was no haste, coercion, or intimidation about this move. Never was the popular will more fairly expressed than when the Southern people uttered their voices for secession. Our enemies have sought to make tho imprcs- Bion abroad that the reverse was the case; that this so called rebellion was hatched by a faction, and is led by a few fire eaters. No such thing,— We were pushed into it, all unprepared as we were, by the tyranny aud tho usurpations and the | factions of the North. In every Southern State the people were regularly consulted on the question of separation from theNorlh. They expressed their opinions freely, and after full deliberation ; and never were people more unanimous at any ballot box than were ours for instant, complete and eternal separation from tbeNorth; and that, too, at the instant, all unprepared as they were. There is now no Union feeling in the South ; but the Yankees would fain have you believe tbat thero is. It is a fact not generally known abroad, but 1 may state it now, that when the war commenced and even after we had assembled an army in tbe field, such was the want of preparation, and such was the lack of munitions of war on our part, tbat Now let us inquire where that army is, for I have never been able to mako it out. You know that we have never pretended to have on our side more than 400,000 men in the field at any one time, and that in every advance that Lincoln has attempted lo make upon ue be has beeu .brought standstill, or driven back as soon as he parted from his ships and gunboats. Neither Hunter in Georgia, nor Benbam in South | Carolina, nor Burnside in North Carolina, have found themselves in sufficient force to advance against us. Halleck had to be called with his army from Missouri fo reinforce Buell so as to enable him to advance upon Beauregard at Corinth^ where we have held the two armies in check for months. Butler has not force enough to venture out of New Orleans, and our Jackson, with an army all told ot uot over 21,000, drove the Yankee j Banks out ofthe valley of the Shenandoah two or three weeks ago. With this smalt force he created such a panic in Washington lhat Lincoln called ont the militia by telegraph to defend his capital. He also called General Fremont with his "division" from tho mountain, and McDowell with bis from Rappahannock, to reinforce Banks, and hold in check this handful of Confederates, while McClellan with his " grand army," has been chased from IVich- ioikI. Either we are superior to the Yankees in prowess as two to one, or tbey lost in thia war since December last not leas than a quarter of a million jof men; orthe "universal Yankee nation''has attempted a fraud upon the Governments of Europe by misleading them as to the extent of the preparations to "crush out" tho so called rebellion in 90 days. Moreover, in all of our engagements with the enemy, he claims that we outuumber him. r How cun this be with his 067,000 agaiust onr impended ■100.000? '""" """*' Where are these 667,000 men? I cannot ac- | count for more than 400,000. It is true tli at we have inflicted many and heavy losses upon the enemy in what he has proclaimed to you as victories. But, great as these losses have been, they do not account fjr tho difference between 667,000 and ■100,000. Actum est de Republico. The Union is gone and the sooner the world addresses itself to that i fact the better it will bo for humanity and com-j m<_rce. Most that Europe knows of us has been learned 1 through Yankee sources, and I have taken up your precious time with this disgusting recita' merely to disabuse your mind of any Yankee falsehoods that may have found a lodgment there, -jd to give you practical illustration of tbc despicable character of the people with whom, unfortunately, we find ourselves embroiled, and from whose association wc wish to withdraw. I pass by Butler's infamous proclamation at New Orleans, and the arming our slaves against our wives and children, to tell yon of a Yankee " " jflnement upon savage barbarity that we have to contend with for pence. But peace is very difficult at present, I admit; ,.i the'North reason has lost ita sway over the mind of tbe people, aud tbe judgment of theii rulers has been taken away. In the South passions run high. Therefore, in tho present temper ofthe two peoples it would be impossible just now 1 for them to agree upon the preliminary step to i any lasting peace, vi?, : the adjustment of bounda-| We are, therefore, drifting into a war of exhaustion. There are rumors of an armed intervention from your side ; but upon what basis this intervention is to take place the many tongued dame has not deigned to enlighten us. Any such intervention cannot but work mischievously if It fail to recognize the rights of the people in the disputed States oi Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri freely and fairly to decide for themselves whether they will cast their lot with the North or the South. Neither can it be supposed that intervention would recognize any dismemberment of present States. With us it is not a war of conquest, but a war for a principle which is dear to every French heart — a principle by which your Emperor sits upor great throne—the right of every people to b. jj./erned in their own way.

Smith, of the Surgeon-General's office, reports that tho wounded in the late battles at Manassas will number 6,000 ; 4,500 have already been provided for in Washington—the reBt in Alexandria and vicinity. The Government Our free strictures upou arbitrary arrests have out intimations (rora certain high quarters in Washington that if we continue this sort of comment it will be at our peril. We can believe that much folly rules there, but this seems almost incredible. It cannot be thut any branch oi our government seriously intends to open a war upon the loyal press—least of all to begin hy assailing one which, from the outset, bas labored with peculiar zeal to uphold thu President, and inspire confidence. If there is a preas in tho country which can fearlessly appeal to its record for proof of thorough fidelity to the principles of this war, as originally set forth by the administration, it is this journal. To the utmost of onr power we have quickened the people to a sense of the vital character and infinite issues of the contest—have repelled all suggestions of surrender or compromise —have combatted faction, and every disorganizing influence—have cheered iu adversity, and admonished in prosperity—and, in every way possible, have endeavored to sustain and strengthen our rulers under their mighty responsibilities. We have conscientiously believed that the support of theadminislratiou involved the support of thi Cause, and have been almost as reluctant to reflect upon the one as upon the other. In this spirit we have shut our eyes to much that, iu our sober judgment, wr.fi worthy oi blame—believing that almost any evil ivaa leee Injurious than diaUuafr and hoping thal^ time would ameud all errors' Time did not amend them. It^.ngravated them- Wheu it at last brought the arbitrary arrest of ioynl men, we could hold cur peace no longer. Faithfulness to the cause forbade it, To our mind, such a violation of the law and justice was contrary to every principle this war seeks to vindicate. It was robbing loyal minds of their highest ideas, and loyal hearts of thoir holiest supports- It was arming the rebels with new arguments. It was providing foreigners with new sneers. It tended to nothing but diecouragment, disgrace and ruin. We protested against it. We shall continue to protest agaiust it. We shall protest against all things like it. From this time forth wo shall do our whole duty in respeet to this admiuistration We shall criticise with ontreserve—approving and condemning, applauding and denouncing, as freely as in days of peace. The conviction has been forced upou us that so only can we fitly discharge our duty to the country in its awful perils. The people are now realizing the bitter consc quecces of undue confidence in the management of the administration. Tbe abandonment of free criticism, which followed the disaster at Bn Run, and the disposition to trust everything to the discretion of the President, have terminated in an accumulation of disaster and disgrace that appals and sickens every heart. Magnificent armies beaten, incomputable treasure wasted, two hundred thousand lives sacrificed, the capital still beleaguered, the border states lost, loyal state* menaced with invasion—all this, too, when the enemy started with an almost absolute destitution of every war-necessary, and is still imperfectly equipped, ragged, and htjlf famished—it is enough to drive even calm men mad. Considering the available means aud the actual results, it is the most disgraceful failure recorded against any government in modern history. And this is the requital of the people's confidence. This is the fruit of deferential silence when Abraham Lixcoln chosc to relieve his subordinates by making haste to assume the responsibility. It is high time that this passlveness were ended. The people are lost if tbey do not henceforth form their owu conclusions, and make them respected. Ihey have got to exercise a constant vigilance, an unsparingcrit- icism,a.udan untiring pressure. Public opinion must develop and consolidate itself, aud take a shape so formidable that no living man or set ol men, iu Woshiugtou or out of it, will dare defy it. ThiB is the more necessary because, contrary to every precedent in a responsible government, whether monarchical or republican, Mr. Lincoln makes no change in his cabinet, There is not a ministry in Europe which could hold power a day after such a period of disasters as has befallen our present rule. There is not a throne that is stable enough to bolster up incompetency so palpably demonstrated. Aberdeen and Newcastle had to resign ;for mismanagement in the Crimea not a hundredth part so gross, or eo damaging. In all such cases, it is not only the need of securing abler men that prompts the change, but tbe importance of giving the nation a substantial pledge of a uow policy. President Lincoln disregards all such con- -iderationa. He keeps those in his highest administrative trusts who have utterly forfeited the confidence of the people. We say, then, that this strange persistency in retaining men who have been tried and lound wanting, imposes a still high* Will faithfully ana rearlcssly dy its approprii work, it will be moral! to keep its ground. E ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ history of ihe rebel ooafederacy, koowe that it was the rebel preas mainly which compelled President Davis to change his Secretary of War after the rebel disasters ofthe sprinff, and forced upon him the aggressive policy which is now developing il- self with Buch wonderful Buccees and prestige.— That press used no ijlnudinhmcnts, and practiced no reserve. It. was thoroughly penetrated with the feeling that its cause was lost unless there were a change, aud it thundered its denunciations with a freedom and a spirit that ought to put to an everlasting shame the sucking-dove roaring which has beeu the style with the loyal press, under as much greater provocation as the honor of its cause was higher, and its stake more precious. There is no mistake about it; President Lincoln and his clibsen advisers must be loss tenderly dealt with. They must be held more sternly to their responsibilities. They must be made to feel something of the dreadful earnestness which surcharges the heart of the people. They must learn to respect the rights ofthe people, and to treat the people as their masters, aud not as their servants. They must tolerate freedom of loyal Bpeech, and renounce all idea of intimidating the loyal press. Fiom the N*\» York Metropolitan "Record. Is Abolitionism a Sentiment or a Principle? Iu the terrible crisis through which tho country is now passing;, the public mind is sorely tried in its endeavors to find out a cause commensurate with an effect eo disastrous. It ia the interest of certain politicians to argue the people into the belief lhat shivery Is the fruitful cause of the pros ent perilous condition of the llepublic, and itis insisted that but for it we would still be pursuing a career of unexampled prosperity. That this is a mischievous fallacy a little serious aud impartial reflection will, wo ihink, make clearly evident.— Slavery is not^Jer se the cause, but, through the designs of fanatical and bad men, & has been made the cause. It was found au admirable subject with which to win the political support of those with whom sentiment takes the place of principle, and who ace pt a fatt as illustrative of the whole system. Steadily and rapidly has this sentiinenlal opposition to au institution whicli is bound wilh tbe industrial Interests of the nation progres.-ed until It has finally assumed a form that threatens the annihilation of Lhe nation itself. That this repugnance to the institution has its on2i» in seutiment merely, and not in pi-ine.ijile. is conclusively proved by the social condition of the free negro in the North. We call him free; but is he not as much a slave to the prejudices of society as bis brethren who are held in legal bondage in the South ? What sacrifice to the principle of unrestrained and universal freedom, so far as it applies to bis case, have we made ? Is he not excluded from all honorable occupation 1 Does uot the white man object to work iu the same shop or factory with him? lias not an overwhelming vote pronounced agaiust allowing him that inalienable right of the white citizen, universal suffrage? lias not the emancipated contraband been prohibited by one State from entering within its boundaries. and have not enfficient indications been given iu other States ta satisfy any candid mind that emigration thereto of colored fugitives would not be permitted 1 All this yoes to prove that the opposition to slavery is based merely on sentiment, and not ou principle. But we will admit, for;the sake ofthe argument, that some, if not a large number of the oppouents of the institution, are impelled iu their course by devotion to what they believe to be a principle.— Let this be granted, and what follows I Why, we naturally inquire what sacrifices have they made to secure its success? Have they contributed geu- crouslj of the'r means? Have they exhibited a williuguess to do anything else besides talking and writing about the horrors of slavery ? Have their leaders been les-j covetous cf the emoluments of office than their political antagonists, or have they been found when in office to be less corrupt? Those who have studied the course of events during the last .aglrteea months, will have no difficulty in finding correct answers to these queries. The daily journals tell us, and the reports of Congressional committees confirm their statements, that in the letting out of contracts, and in other official transactions, there nerer has been exhibited such an amount of political rascality and corruption since tho foundation of the llepublic. A. RoseaH*"**"* Co From the New "fork Metropolitan jteeord. What is Secesrtotilsm : It ia a favorite dodge of some people now-a days to endeavor to shut up a man wiio disagrees witli them by accusing him of seccssionism.— El is an easy way of getting rid of an argument that one cannot answer, It is far easier than convincing an opponent, in fact, it is " as easy as lying." But is a man a secessionist because he desires pence, or deprecates subjugation, or intimates a wish that persona! liberty was less restricted ■ Is he a secessionist because lie is not blind to the discrepancies in official reports, or the shortcomings of government, the incompetency of a general, or the blunders of a statesman ? Is he a secessionist because lie abhors the idea of conquerers or conquered taking the place of fellow citizens in this Republic, because he wish ef] for no snch union as that of Ireland with England, or Poland with Russia, on this broad continent? Is he a secessionist because he ie alive to the wickedness and absurdity of enslaving white men in order to set negroes Iree? Is a man a secessionist who does not believe our government infallible-, our army invincible, nnd our resource.** illimitable 1 la it secessionism to hint that our Southern brethren arc human beings still, tiiat they have rights which it would be dangerous to disregard, and feelings it would bo wise to take into account ? Is it secessionism to admit that they are brave and wary, or to doubt that they are bo destitute and desponding as it is the fashion to represent them ? Ib it secessionism to shrink from taxation, to wish that our government were more frank in dealing with the people, more desirous of relieving them firom the horrors of suspense, more chary of interfering with the liberty of the press, and freedom of speech, more economic of public money? Is it seccssionism to long wilh a longing of which theso people have no conception for the reconstruction of the Union on the basis of the Constitution, on the good old guarantees that satisfied tbe men of '7G ? What better nre we than they, or what better is the negro now than ho was iu their day, that he should be made a bone of contention between the sections, a wedge to spl'.t up the Republic? Our Revolutionary fathers never thought of legislating negroes into equality with white men ; their sense of right was no more sbooked by tlieir exclusion from political privileges than it was by the exclusion of tbe idiotic, and they were right, for if in the case of the latter, inferiority of intellect is judged sufficient to place the individual below the level of the race, why is not the same cause sufficient to place an inferior race below tho level ofa superior ? Is belief in this secessionism? We think not, but we have heard men accused of secessionism lor less, It would be well, therefore, to know if men are to be dubOed secessionists uecause nrey caunot think ns Government thinks, or as every Individual officer of the Governmeut, from the Secretary of State down to the lowest patrolman in a police district, thinks. For this is what we aro coining to. Meet abolitionists, or as tbey prefer to be called just now, emancipationists, where you will, and presume to assert your right to think for yourself, to criticise with your lips what you condemn in your heart ; proceed ou the assumption that your right to differ ftom them is as clear as their right is to differ from you ; refuse to accept their say-so as au article of your political creed, and they discern at ooco that you are a secessionist. In our opinion, it is not wise to bandy about such charges recklessly ; disloyalty to the Government should never be assumed, for in a land like ours, under a Government elected like ours, to say that the people are disloyal is to say that the Government ia unworthy. or—Glass MiU-bles for Iron ^^^^^^^^^^ Balls: A Richmond correspondent of the ex-Memphis Appeal (now the Grenada Appeal) devotes pait of a letter to tbe manner in which the " Yankee Government is swindled by its contractors." He says an amusing instauce of this cheatery was afforded in the bombardment of Vicksburg. The officerB of the ram Arkansas sent to the rebel Secretary of the Navy, several handsfull of glass marbles such as the boys call " white alleys" and " alley taws,:' whicli were thrown out from the Federal fleet shell ns upon the deck of that vessel. The same things were found] in the streets of Vicksburg.— Some contractor, tho correspondent thinks, had bargained to furnish shells filled with iron grape shot or leaden bullets, but finding glass and stone tobe much cheaper materials, he charged the shells with these articles. They are not so deadly as iron or leaden missiles would be, by reason of wanting the momentum the heavier articles would acquire. The correspondent says the contractor may have beeu a Southern sympathizer on tbe sly, and purposely made his shells as little mischievous as possible, at the same time he serves the interest of his pocket. It, is rather to be presumed, however, that the case was one of pure roguery, alter liie fashion of contractors, and that no consideration of anything except his own pc:ke;., ooterci.! i;-,io the business. Tho war has demonstrated our superiority over the rebels in at least one thing—our- contractors are infinitely more rascally than theirs.' TI»e New Hit)el Steamer "No. 800." According to the following statement, furnished by lhe London correspondent ofthe Dublin Eoening Mail, the new steamer No. 2110, which has just given the Tuscarora the slip, is an ironclad and a very formidable vessel : She can steam from sixteen to eighteen knot3 nn hour ; is perfectly seaworthy, for all practical purposes invulnerable, and will prove to any vessel she may encounter aa formidable au antagonist as our own warrior, the boast of the British navy. This is the '*No. 290" as to whoso whereabouts Federal cruisers have with reason betrayed such anxiety. It had beeu known for some time that a large and powerful iron vesel was constructing at the dockyard of Messrs. Laird, Birkenhead ,- but monsters of the deep nre so much the order of the day at that establishment tbat no one troubled hiB bead much about Lhis new production, or cared to remark the thickness of the plates which were being used. At the very last moment the Federal authorities seem to have had their suspicions aroused, for the Tuscarora was dispatched to keep watch in the neighborhood of the dock where she lay, and the coast of Ireland was also strict:y watched. "No. 200," meanwhile, apprized of all that was going on, dropped down the river quietly one day, and steamed out iuto tho bay, nominally for her trial trip—with a party of ladies and musicians on board. Instead, however, of returning to moorings at Birkenhead, where she would have been kept in durance vile by tho Tuscarora, she quietly landed ber passengers, avoiding Cork, Waterloid, etc.. ia the neighborhood of which she might have heard of something not al all to her advantage. "No. 200*' steamed ■ound by Londonderry and Donegal, was joined off the west coast of Ireland by the sieamer which had previously sailed, having on board the armament intended- for the Ironsides. Had ahe even met the Tuscarora while still unarmed, it was the ntentiou of her Captain to try the fortune of war by running stem on at full speed into her antagonist. It needs no extraordinary discernment to discover what excitement must be causal at tlio ther side of the Atlantic by tbe arrival oi ''So. 290." Mr. Mason, the Confederate comualflfeioiwr, at last dates, was rusticating in SooUand.
