em, which the Japanese Government had not endeavored to check. A report that President Lincoln was dead has been extensively circulated in England, and further American news was anxiously sought for. The London Times editorially reiterates its hope for the maintenance of peace, and says when the soil and seas of the New World are likely to be stained with blood, foreign nations may surely remonstrate in the cause of humanity. The Paris correspondent of the Daily News says that Russia has informed France that in consequence of the events in Warsaw it would be impossible to join France in any measure for the settlement of the Eastern question. Commercial. The Liverpool cotton market closed firm with a slight advance for finer qualities on Friday's rates. Sales of the week 68,000 bales. The sales included 5,300 bales to exporters — The last advices from the United States caused an advance of 1-16@½. Principally for clean — useful qualities being scares. The
is, Mo.; Louisville, Ky.; and Memphis, Tenn., should be occupied by Northwestern troops, and the strong points on the river fortified. The editor orders fifty thousand men for this purpose, and a "home reserve of an equal number to fill vacancies after battles." This is a prudential provision. The home reserve should be made up of men of undaunted spirit, for every man of them will be needed. "Kentucky and Missouri, we notice," exclaims Harper, with a dignity that would become the Czar of Russia, "evince a tardy sense of their national obligations. This is very good, as far as if goes.

If she is against us, in a few months Ohio will probably be arming 50,
as South Carolina. But then, observe the arguer, why not the Northern States have as many available men, in proportion? for three good reasons: First, granting that they could raise 350,000; instead of 261,100, and that all who were required to do so would willingly volunteer, the force kept at home, from motives of policy, custom and security, should not be less than 50,000, so that the available would be only 250,000. secondly: Neither North nor South, nor any nation other than France, Russia and Austria, could send on a long journey 261,000 men, and feed and supply it on the road; and Mr. Lincoln being pledged not to molest private property, or forcibly take provisions from the people in the invaded States, his Government could do it less than that of any other power.--Thirdly: the North can never raise 261,000 for outside fighting. Were she attacked at home, it is more likely, as all military men will see, that 3,000,000 could be brought into the field, than that 261,000 could
