Principle and interest. Hon. A. H. Stephens remarks in his late speech at Atlanta, that this war is against the whole principle upon which the American Revolution was fought, and that Massachusetts, then represented by the patriot Hancock, now occupies towards us the same relation that England did to all in the Revolution. This is all true; but principle is nothing to Massachusetts when interest is concerned.--This war is prompted by the most sordid, mercenary, selfish considerations that ever influenced the conduct of nations. The highwayman who assails a man upon the road and demands his money or his life, is not more a murderer for gold than the manufacturers and merchants who are directing this war upon the South.

Negroes Punished. --The examination of certain negroes charged with talking of and making arrangements, for an insurrection against the white inhabitants of Chesterfield county, at the house of J. B. Vaughn, on the night of December 27th, was reduced yesterday at 10 o'clock, at the Town Hall in Manchester, before Spencer Hancock, Esq., J. P., and after lasting five hours was concluded, no new fact having been elected. The parties in their "talks" made no reference, as we understood, to anything they proposed to do themselves, the tenor of their information leading them to believe that all the arrangements necessary to accomplish their "freedom" would be perfected at the North. None of the negroes implicated belonged to Charles Rhodes, as stated yesterday. The following is a list of owners, names of negroes, and award of judgment in the case: Jim, slave of Samuel Harogrove, thirty-nine lashes; Phil, (Wm. Gray's,) thirty-nine; Warner and Leander, (Mrs. Clarke's,) thirty-nine ea
