Edwin Deleon. --When the news of the election of Lincoln first reached Egypt, (as early as the 3d of January last,) Mr. Edwin DeLeon, Consul-General of Egypt, at once wrote the Department at Washington, and unconditionally sending in his resignation, to take effect on the 4th of March. Being among the first diplomatic officers abroad to resign, it has, perhaps, been suppressed through policy; but he has ever been too consistent a Southern man to hold office under a Republican, even before the secession of his own State was known. Mr. DeLeon has filled his position abroad for eight years, with such credit to himself and to his country, that Congress has twice passed complimentary resolutions on his conduct in the Greek and Jaffa outrages. The cause of Mr. DeLeon's delay in Egypt is the death of Mr. Moore, the Vice-Consul, who was his personal friend, and who left his private affairs in his hands to be arranged; he, therefore delayed his return for the benefit of his fri
English Views of the American war [From the London Times, 3d.] President Lincoln's call to arms shows at once the strength and weakness of his Government. He is not the ruler of a people . A week did not elapse from the proclamation of war to the second disruption of the Union. Mr. Lincoln at the middle of April was still the head of a Confederation of 27 States; by this time these into a flame. To direct the course of this civil conflagration would seem beyond the power of Lincoln on the one side, or Davis on the other. Every Southerner has been suddenly filled with the spi and it is equaled by the excitement at Philadelphia, Cincinnati, and other great cities. President Lincoln has given the signal; but the battle will be fought by independent States, we might almostmpetuous, and chafing under the reproaches of the Secessionists, have met the Proclamation of Mr. Lincoln, not only by immediate secession, but by acts of warfare which seem not unpremeditated. No s
ns groaning in want, and thousands upon thousands in sadness because the light of their eyes have been called from them into this war, wherein, by a conflict, possible at any time, they may be extinguished, how unbecoming does it seem for Mrs. President Lincoln to be daily dashing through the lines of soldiers upon the Avenue, with her driver and postilion in livery, in a glaringly labelled carriage, to denote who is the passer; and, as if, in a time for fashion and dress shopping by the way! Bonly through tears! I did not want to write thus. I would have omitted to do so, could my sense of duty have permitted it. But seeing how the faults, or follies, if it better please, which I have noticed, are working upon soldiers and people, that many, very many, are "hurt" thereby. A sequel to the foregoing may be found in Mrs. Lincoln's recent sojourn at New York, where she purchased most magnificent ornaments for the White House, and a vast quantity of finery for her own person.
opportunity to demonstrate their love and gratitude to this great, generous and noble Commonwealth, and are eager to exercise the proud prerogatives of a freeman, whish she has conferred upon them in such a way as to insure her the freedom which she is struggling to maintain against despotic oppressors. They recognize the fact that their supreme allegiance, like that of native-born citizens of the State, is due to Virginia, and not to the Chicago platform, which has been substituted by the Lincoln party for the Constitution of the United States. It is possible, however, that some of their number do not realize the importance of voting, taking it for granted that as they see no opposition to the Ordinance of Secession, it will pass without their assistance. But if all voters should reason in this way, that Ordinance might be defeated, because, in the Northwest and on the borders of Pennsylvania and the Ohio river, large numbers of illegal voters will probably be introduced, who will

The massacre of the Innocents. Who can read the slaughter of the innocent women and children in St. Louis without a tear? Who can think of these helpless and unoffending ones of our own Southern family, butchered in cold blood by the foreign mercenaries of Lincoln, without indescribable Horror and rage? We had supposed that in Europe alone, where these murderers profess to have suffered from despotism, such atrocities could be committed. It seems not. They, the bloody barbarians, have introduced them in the land which gave them a refuge, as a recompense for the kindness that sheltered them here. The day of retribution will come. Wretches who can murder women and children are beyond the pale of civilization, and ought to be hunted down like wild beasts.
Lincoln an Old Secessionist. The Missouri Republican, of April 29, thus proves that Lincoln is fully committed to the doctrine of Secession: Abraham Lincoln a Teacher of Secession "Philosophy." --It will probably surprise Mr. Lincoln's friends quite as much as we have been surprised, to learn that he is fully and unequivocally committed to the very "philosophy" which he is now endeavoring to "crash out" by bringing to bear against its adherents the whole military power of the Government. Yet such is the fact. The following is an extract from a speech delivered by Abraham Lincoln, (the same Lincoln who is now President of the United States,) in the House of Representatives, January 12, 1848. And in order to enable every reader to assure himself of its authenticity, we will mention that the speech may be found in the Appendix to the Congressional Globe of the 30th Congress, (1st session,) page 94.--The following is a literal extract: "Any people, anywhere, being i
