re to leave the negro population unguarded in his rear, and his flanks menaced by the seaborn Northerners on one side, and by such operations as the water-sheds significantly indicate on the other. It is idle to speculate on the incidents of that which may never occur, and which, occurring, may assume the insignificant aspect of border skirmishes, or the tremendous proportions of a war of races and creeds intensified by the worst elements of servile and civil conflict. The Government of Mr. Lincoln hope and believe that the contest may be averted. The Commissioners of the South are inclined to think, also, there will be a peaceful solution — obtained, of course, by full concession and recognition. But inaction cannot last on the part of the South. Already they have begun the system of coercion. --The supplies of the garrison at Sumter will be cut off henceforth, if they are not already forbidden. They do not fear the moral effect of this act, for some of their leading men actual

But this was not to deral compact; and now we have the pacific policy which followed Mr. Lincoln's accession to office cast aside, and a policy of force substitu is, What will the principals gain by it? It is evident that President Lincoln has neither an army nor a navy at hand to make the South submtion, and would prove so malignant in practice, that we will do Mr. Lincoln the justice of expressing our disbelief in his ever having recouless justifiable now than it would have been at the beginning of Mr. Lincoln's administration, because it has become by the lapse of time infthis conclusion will concur with other considerations to make President Lincoln hesitate before he enters on a contest in which he may have t

hour were compelled to sit in the cars for six hours waiting for them, the various commanding officers being in the rear train. The troops which arrived at 1 o'clock consist of part of Capt. C. E. Girardy's Battalion Louisiana Guard, 155 men; Montgomery Guard, Capt. Nolan, 104 men; Emmett Guard, Captain Neiligen, 74 men; Caddo Rifles, Captain Lewis, 105 men — the whole amounting to 438 men.--The troops were substantially clothed, well armed, and not at all averse to having a brush with Lincoln's followers at the earliest possible moment. They report thousands of the same sort on the way here. Sunday night 1,400 men from Tennessee landed at the camp near Lynchburg — also a battalion of about 150 from Huntsville, Alabama, and the cry was still they come. Up to 7½ o'clock last evening the above troops had not passed this office on their way to the camp ground. At the hour named it was raining violently. In speaking of the arrival of the above troops we must specially allude to
A Lincolnite caged. --Sunday night a fellow calling himself John Frost got into a rather warm place by declaring on the streets his incendiary proclivities in the hearing of loyal citizens. Among his assertions was one to the effect that no army the South might muster could move Lincoln from Washington, or take him in custody for his flagrant violations of constitutional obligation; also, that he was a Black Republican, and did not care who knew it. As a matter of course, the fellow was deposited in the watch-house. The Mayor yesterday put him in jail, though he might with equal justice have ordered him thirty-nine lashes, the case coming under that provision of law authorizing the Mayor to inflict stripes on blacks, whether Republicans or otherwise. No doubt a term in the chain gang will in the end serve to cool the ardor of the incendiary refugee.
Wants his name changed. --An excellent citizen of Memphis, Mr. G. N. Lincoln, has petitioned the Legislature to have his name changed. The petitioner alleges that his father and grandfather were first-rate people, but he now deems his patronymic unendurable.
ssionist at the head of administration, and a Legislature frightened from its duty, Maryland is virtually subdued. Many brave men refuse to acknowledge the fact, and a strong latent determination to seize a favorable moment for deliverance pervades the people; but, for the present, Maryland is subdued. For all present purposes of advantage to the enemy and injury to us, Maryland belongs to the North. She will not fight against us; she will not furnish her regiments to obey the behests of Lincoln; but these are not wanted by the well-provided foe. It is the ground, the territory of Maryland, that he needs; and of that he is master. Success has given him confidence; and he turns now to Virginia. He has command of the Chesapeake and of the Capes. He has possession of Fortress Monroe. He has dominion of the waters of Eastern Virginia. His smallest vessel, with a single gun, can lord it over any of our beautiful rivers and estuaries. He has forty thousand troops at Washington. He
The English press. We give extracts, to-day, from the English press. They cry out with one voice against civil war in America. If they pronounce Lincoln's threats of coercion "diabolical," what will they say when they hear of the hellish proceedings in New York? We are strongly of opinion that Lord Lyons will be instructed to offer the mediation of England, and, if that is not effectual, that, in the end, the interests of England will require a more effectual intervention.
A war of subjugation or extermination. An intelligent gentleman who arrived lately in this city, from Washington, states that he heard Lincoln make a speech on Thursday night last, in which he declared that the present war must end in the subjugation or extermination of the South. That is the purpose of the Administration, beyond all doubt.

Spies in the South. We have little doubt that Lincoln has his agents in every Southern locality, and a strict look-out should be kept for them. Strangers, especially, no matter how pacific the pretenses on which they profess to come, should be closely watched, and, if necessary, prevented from leaving.
