Or will he and system of military the last ten months, continue to drag to the end of his administration? such as these are the absorbing topics of the day; but the only man who can answer them Lincoln. The public mind is gloomy; not utterly, despair while awaiting the of the waters. Meantime let us glance field, and see from the situation of things Union forces employed here and there the prospect of this Fifteen thousand of the sacrificed at one swoop, and the rest only by a hair's breadth, and all for what? same old accursed trio of imbeciles at Washington, Lincoln, Halleck, and Stanton.

Two remarkable contrasts. A Washington correspondent of a Chicago paper gives a graphic account of the manner in which his august Excellency, President Lincoln, goes forth from the White House. His carriage, while awaiting him at the gate of the palace, is surrounded by fierce looking guards, and when he enters it and proceeds to take his air, a body of cavalry, armed to the teeth, ride before, and behind, and both sides the Presidential carriage. It is in the style of Eastern despots tentleman was the President of the Confederate States. The President of the Southern Confederacy is too strong in the affections of the people to require an armed guard, and too much of a Republican and a gentleman to ape the vulgar state of Abraham Lincoln.--We are willing to put the two Presidents side by side, and let the world judge the people by their representative men. Another of the remarkable and suggestive contrasts of the times is that furnished by the recent battles before Rich
pon their receipts. such of said property as may be required for the use of the United States army; to collect together all the other personal property and being the same to New Orleans, and cause it to be sold at public auction to the highest bidders"--an order which if executed, condemns to punishment by starvation, at least a quarter of a million of human beings, of all ages, sexes, and conditions; and of which the execution, although forbidden to military officers by the orders of President Lincoln, is in accordance with the Confiscation law of our enemies, which he has directed to be unforced through the agency of civil officials. And finally, the African slaves have not only been excited to insurrection by every license and encouragement; but numbers of them have actually been armed for a servals war, a war in its nature far exceeding in horrors the most merciless atrocities of the savages: And whereas the officers under the command of the said Butler have been, in many i
cause, when we had arranged terms of peace the Belgium refused them; and instead of enforcing obedience the Powers divided, England and France supporting Belgium, and the other three Powers ending by Holland and their joint award. "Holland defied the five Powers." No such thing; she defied Belgium, and defeated the Belgians over and over but when England and France interfered, though she had Russia, Austria, and Prussia on her side, she withdrew from the contest. We do not expect from Mr. Lincoln the singular good sense and moderation which distinguish the Princes of the House of Orange. But so far as precedents go, those just discussed establish the right of intervention beyond dispute, while they prove nothing either against the possibility of effecting by mediation a pacific settlement, nor against the wisdom of interference in such a case as the present. The Confederates are not Gr or Belgians; they are neither savages nor coward. They have shown their ability and resoluti
The latest "Joke" from Lincoln. A story as to at the North, and is now current hero of the dignified reception recently given by the President of the United States to an English nobleman of high birth, which is another of the extraordinary brilliantly of Lincoln's mind, The Marquis of Hartington, son of the Duke of Devonshire, and member of Parliament for North Lancashire, England, was adjourning a brief period in the city of Washington and having seen Seward, the present Secretary of ations having been made, was, at the appointed time, ushered into the majestic presence of the lord of the White House. Lincoln received the distinguished visitor very carelessly, and, after gazing upon him for a moment, asked, "What did you say the name was?" "The Marquis of Harlington" was the reply. "Ah! Hartington, Hartington," repeated Lincoln, as if endeavoring to impress it well upon his memory; then suddenly brightening up the exclaimed "Why, that rhymes with Mrs. Partington?"
