ers know that if the war should continue several years, the Yankee war debt will not be greater, in proportion to their ability to pay, than the national debts of France and England. That this be very consoling to the Yankee nation! No doubt every Yankee from Cape Cod to Cairo will fall into spasms of exultation when he learns ts us that the Yankees can sustain this war for "several" years without incurring a debt greater in proportion to their ability to pay than the debt of England and France. At last he comes to specialties, and designates nine years as the length of time which they can hold out, on the named terms. Now, we do not know what may be the ability of France or England to pay the interest on their public debt, but this we do know. At the present rate, the Yankee debt in nine years will amount to the sum of $4,320,000,000 and the interest thereon, at the same rate, will be $321,000,000--sums fully equal to the whole British debt, and the interest thereon, if they

Such is the demand for shipment to France at present that the sales of grain on the New York Corn Exchange on Friday reached three quarters of a million of bushels. French buyers, it is stated, have almost controlled prices in the New York market for some time past, their orders having been on a very extensive scale. An English writer on France calls attention to the fact that upon the abundance or failure of the grain harvest in that country, may depend the question of war or peace for Europe. With that suspicion and dislike for the Emperor Napoleon to which almost every British journal gives bitter and constant expression, this writer broaches a theory, that, in the event of a short crop, the French ruler will make war abroad, in order to maintain himself at home and k
ity for civil and political freedom, will have to change her own nature and be false to all her traditions before she can change Republicanism for Monarchy. But we shall not be surprised if the predictions of the Times, so far as the North is concerned, shall be realized before many years.--The present contest has clearly developed what was before suspected, that the masses of the Northern population have no more comprehension of the true principles of free government than the masses of France or Germany--no reverence or regard for the most sacred rights, franchises, and badges of constitutional liberty; but rejoice to trample them all under foot, so as to gratify the greed of gain and the passion for revenge, which are the mainsprings of the present war. They have Union better than Liberty, better than Republicanism, and to save that Union, have cheerfully endowed Lincoln with more than the powers of any united monarch in Europe and would give him the name as readily as the subst
