ly insignificant affair of the secession of a few States, but it is the crisis of our national existence. What Rome suffered during her intestine conflicts; what France suffered during her revolutions; what England suffered during her civil wars, this republic is suffering now. From these cruel pangs we must emerge a great and unir prestige and power at home and their dreams of foreign intervention are at an end.--They believe that if for a month or two longer they can bold their capital, France and England will come to their rescue. With their superior forces in front of McClellan, they have become bold and daring, and from their late dashing operationsgramme for the summer campaign. The means at their command for its execution are rather inadequate; but they count upon the active assistance of both England and France.

He has to make up his mind to live in an atmosphere of jealousy, suspicion, and misapprehension, and under constant irritation from evil construction and had manners.--If there is an interval of reasonable temper and courteous behavior, it is sure to be presently over. If the Ministers are amiable, the journalists are sure to be insulting, and from one quarter or an other he is under the constant necessity of explaining matters which would never raise a question in any other country. The French Minister stands next in favor to the Russian, generally speaking.--There were bickering and threatening of war during the Orleans reign; but under the France has appeared very charming to the licans at Washington and at Paris. Other Ministers meet with varying degrees of favor, but the two extreme of treatment correspond with the political extremes. The Czars Ambassador is the pet and the British is the butt.-- Once a Week.
