exportations. It is to present the market for merchandize and manufactures. It is to supply freights for the shipping; and it teems with the population which is to give travel to their railroads, business to their cities, and life and enterprise to everything. More than all this to the men in authority, the Northwest holds the preponderating vote in the Yankee Union, and can make and unmake President, Secretaries and Generals. McClellan himself was its own man, before whose rising star, Scott and McDowell warned into obscurity. The Northwest is no longer the great giant she is vaunted, if the Mississippi is taken away from her. She is then thrown upon the Lakes and the St. Lawrence, half the former and all the latter British, for her water access to the seas. Besides this channel of exit, she must depend upon great lines of Yankee railroads; and, if the railroad itself be the farmer's curse, what must be the Yankee railroad, with more freight offering than it can transport?
nd re-organize the Cameron clan for the purpose of cattle stealing. When such a man as Cameron lets go his hold of an office yielding a rich revenue, every friend of the South may derive the most happy auguries from the fact. We hear almost simultaneously that the United States is bankrupt and that Cameron has resigned. As soon as the treasury is empty, Cameron disappears. His resignation is the best evidence that we have yet seen that the United States is on its last legs. When old Scott threw up his position it was evidence that no more laurels were to be gained in the present war, and when Cameron vamooses, it is equally demonstrated that no more money is to be had. If the conservative pressure brought against Cameron's abolition programme has been the cause of his retirement it is another sign of a radical split in the North upon the policy to be observed with respect to slave property in this war. It will have the effect, like Fremont's resignation, of alienating th

His "former declaration," if we recollect aright, was made some months ago, since which time the weather, up to a late date was uncommonly fine, and the roads as good as in summer, but "the war" has been in no hurry. In his next conversation, the Hon. Schuyler would do well to ask Gen. McClellan to define what he means by "short." The war was to be "short and sharp" when Gen. Scott took command, and under McClellan it is to be "short and desperate." If the Honorable Colfax permits himself to be put off with this vague stereotype, he is easily satisfied. Let him ask McClellan to be precise and definite, as Seward is, who always gives the number of days in which the war is to end--"ten," "sixty," or "ninety"--and who is thought none the less of by his admiring countrymen because he never hits the mark. McClellan is no prophet. He predicted before the battle of Lees
