The cotton question. It has long been a problem of deepest interest to Philosopher Greeley --the Marat of the American press — how it was possible for the world to get along without the slave-grown cotton of the Southern States of this Union. He tried Africa, India, South America, by turns, pressed with zeal the expediency of substituting flax grown by free labor for it, and set the ingenuity of all abolitionism to work to invent machinery whereby it was to be wrought as cheaply and as successfully as cotton. This plan exploded, and then the Philosopher relied upon Providence to develop some plan to break the league with crime in the Southern States! But a prominent Southern man comes to the relief of the Philosopher of the abolitionists. This comforter expresses the fear (from the tenor of the language employed, we might infer it to be the wish,) that the European demand for Southern cotton will now fall off to nothing, in consequence of the subjugation of China. The Engli

Weed and Greeley. These two distinguished leaders of the Black Republican cohorts show no signs of compromise. It is now believed that Weed has the inside track for the spoils, a fact which harrows the sensibilities of the patriotic Horace to the core. He professes to have no taste nor scent for the official larder, neverth

Now comes Seward's revenge.
He is made Premier, and his trusty Lieutenant, Thurlow Weed, outgeneraling Greeley at every move, is believed to control the dispensation of the official patronage.
To a man of Horace's high sense of honor, this ingratitude of Lincoln must be aved to control the dispensation of the official patronage.
To a man of Horace's high sense of honor, this ingratitude of Lincoln must be as crushing as the dagger with which "the well beloved Brutus"" stabbed the Roman tyrant.
We expect to hear soon that "Ingratitude, more keen than traitor's steel," has made an end of Greeley.
Fort Sumter. The Washington correspondent of the New York Tribune, whose editor, Mr. Greeley, now divides with the conservative Seward, (author of the "irrepressible conflict,") the confidence of the Executive, insists that "the reason of the surrender of Fort Sumter must not be misunderstood." It is done wholly because it cannot now be reinforced before the supplies of the garrison are exhausted. The writer adds, "that the rumors about Fort Pickens being given up are entirely unfounded.--This fortress can be reinforced, and it will be. An extra session of Congress is likely to be soon called to supply the omission of the last, and enable the Administration to assert the authority of the Government. The policy will probably be to repeal the laws making ports of the seceding States ports of foreign entry, and to station national vessels thereat to prevent foreign importations." The Tribune anticipates a howl of triumph from the Secessionists, but insists that the alleged w

Plan of the campaign. That great military genius, Raymond, of the New York Times, generally known as "the little villain," an epithet bestowed upon him by his courteous contemporary, Greeley, of the N. Y. Tribune, has burst out in an amazing explosion of wrath against Virginia, throwing out streams of red-hot lava, that threaten to submerge this unhappy Common wealth from the Potomac to the Ohio. If the U. S. Government had only hit upon the happy device of sending Raymond to relieve Major Anderson, we can easily conceive that Charleston would have surrendered at sight. He did publish wise plans, we believe, by which that object could be effected; but we suppose the Government failed to appreciate their merit, for Charleston is still safe and defiant. Raymond was a spectator of the military operations in the Sardinian contest, and is said to have made better time in a retreat from an Austrian regiment than was ever known in the history of war. We therefore listen with respect
Greeley's Plan of a campaign — a grandconquest Meditated. New York, April 28. --The Tribune says:-- "So soon as everything requisite shall be prepared and supplied, there will doubtless be a force of 200,000 men sent to the relief of Fort Pickens, and it will march through, not around, Richmond, Raleigh, Charleston, Savannah, Montgomery and New Orleans (! !) being joined at the last-named city by a like force, which will have made its way down the Mississippi." [It is certainly kind in the Yankees to keep us well posted in regard to their plans, in advance.]
