troyed by the act, and that our Government would fall, both in Europe and Asia, from its rank as a first class Power by means of civil war. He adds: "The melancholy fact of the breaking up of the United States is fully understood by the Japanese. Master Tommy asked me the other day what would become of the United States?--if it would belong to England?--if there would be any more American Minister to Japan? and a score of similar questions." A Japanese Embassy was about to be dispatched to France, England, Russia, Prussia, and every other European Power having treaties with the Emperor. Trade had slightly improved in Japan." Six American vessels entered the port of Havre on the 16th of September, with cargoes consisting altogether of 71,100 sacks of corn and 15,231 barrels of flour. Our files by the Fulton contain very extended reports on the harvest prospects in Ireland. The main points are: The wheat crop has turned out thin and light, so that the yield will not equal
Welcome arrival. --A train arrived at the Petersburg depot on Saturday evening, from the South, with the most valuable lot of freight which it has been our good fortune to see since the commencement of the war. It includes a large number of cases well packed with Enfield rifles; bales of blankets; kegs and boxes of cartridges, and many other articles unnecessary to enumerate. It matters not whence this valuable supply was obtained — whether from England, France, or elsewhere; but the style of packing is as unlike anything we have been accustomed to see in America as a hawk is to a handsaw. We consider the arrival a very important event in the campaign. The arms, munitions, and stores will be transported to the point where they are most needed, and we expect to hear a good account of them hereafter.
m danger has been thought its security. Fighting under no rule, taking the ambuscade and shot-gun in preference to the open plain and the bayonet or cannon; Indians in attack, cavalry in retreat; present always when least expected, yet never found when hunted for, they are a peculiar, a subtle, dangerous foe, and one which requires different treatment from that of any other in the civilized world. Hence I permit myself to doubt the propriety of warring with them as we would with England or France. Columns of infantry and the heavy impedimenta of our troops cannot catch them unless they wish it; and they never wish it, unless satisfied that an immense superiority of numbers will give them an easy victory. To meet such men we want light cavalry, we want men that can travel as fast as they can, and who, when the moment for action comes, are equally ready to use their sabres as dragoons, or, dismounted, take to the trees and operate as infantry. We want light artillery, four and six p
ay, says that highly important advices have been received from Cuba. The Spanish war steamer Leone was waiting at Cadiz for the result of the Cabinet conference in relation to an European coalition against Mexico, and that the advices of the ultimatum of Spain might be immediately dispatched to the Governor-General of Cuba. In the meantime, an expedition is being fitted out at Havana for Mexico, under the pretext that its destination is San Domingo. The expedition will consist of six batteries howitzers, and 10,000 men, and they will be ready to start the latter part of next month. It is given out that Spain is taking these steps against Mexico on her own responsibility, but advices state definitely that England and France send their quota of men, and will co-operate with fleets in the Gulf. The whole country will be startled by this movement, and the public will view the regulation of Mexican affairs as the least important. The object evidently looks further North.
