The Annexation party.

Whilst the English press are threatening the South in advance with all the terrors of a European crusade, if they undertake to carry out the American notions of "manifest destiny"--which none of them have intimated in any way as any part of their intentions — the very first pronunciamento of annexation has come from the Black Republican leader, Senator Wade, who, in his speech just made, which is the first declaration on the floors of Congress, at this session, of Black Republican policy under Lincoln's administration, and everywhere called by that party as the reflection of their own sentiments, boldly takes ground for the Annexation of Canada. This is a part of the Republican programme, as announced by Wm. H. Seward in his late campaign speeches in the Northwest. How do you like that, Mr. Bull? We wish you joy of your new allies.
