all belief. Nor does it confine itself to defence. It is continually urging upon it the most extraordinary policy and the most desperate enterprises. It tells Lincoln that his resources in men and money are enormous beyond all possibility of belief. It tells England, France, and Spain that the United States are equal to a struggle with them all combined. It insists upon it that Lincoln shall call out a million of men, and build two hundred ships-of-war in addition to what he already has. It is eternally abusing England in the most violent manner. It was the first to defend the capture and detention of Mason and Slidell. It urges upon Lincoln the mostLincoln the most boundless expenditure of money. It constantly stimulates the North to renewed exertions against the South, involving, of course, an unheard of expenditure, by concealing their numerous defeats, or proclaiming them as victories. It tells them that the South is at its last gasp, and calls the message of President Davis "a dying ki
England could not submit without such a stain upon her escutcheon as it has never yet borne, and a damaging blow to her prestige among the nations. It remains now to be seen what course the bloated and arrogant despotism at Washington will pursue. If it were not as pusillanimous as it is base, no one could doubt that it would instantly and indignantly refuse the demand of the British Government.-- It has committed itself to the act of Commander Wilkes, not only through the intimations of Lincoln in his message, by the letter of Secretary Welles, emphatically approving the conduct of Wilkes, and regretting that he had not seized the vessel as well as the Commissioners, but by the act of imprisoning and keeping in prison the Commissioners. If it now submits to the humiliating demand of Great Britain, it will sink itself to a state of abjectness which no nation has ever reached, and become a hissing bye-word and laughing stock through the whole world. If, on the other hand, it rejec
A voice from Maryland. [The following "rebel" balled has lately been extensively circulated in Baltimore, notwithstanding the most vigorous exertions, on the part of Lincoln's police, to suppress it. We received the copy from a gentleman who passed through that city last week.] Oh, Jeff.! Why Don't you come!"Air--"Willie, we have missed you. Jeff. Davis, are you coming? We'll be glad to see you here; We'll give you a hearty greeting — you'll be welcome everywhere; You'll find a subjugated set — appeals are all in vain; They've disbudded all our police, and arrested Marshal Kane. He was a gallant gentleman — the city's boast and pride; With Baltimore's best interest his name's identified. Not being Picayune Butler stripe, whenever there was a fray, To quell it, with his brave police, he boldly led the way. And when Abe's starving soldiers did begging to him come, He gave them food, and words of cheer, and kindly sent them home; So, while you are rewarding all those <

Halifax, Dec. 15, --The Europa arrived here to-day from Liverpool on the 30th ult., and Queentown on the 2d inst. where she was detained until Monday, by order of the British Government. She has the Queen's messenger on board, with dispatches for Lord Lyons. London, Dec. 1st.--The Observer states that the Government will demand from President Lincoln and his Cabinet the restoration of the persons of the Southern envoys to the British Government. Yesterday afternoon after five o'clock Her Majesty held a Privy Council at Windsor Castle. Three of Her Majesty's Ministers, including the First Lord of Admiralty and Secretary of State for War, traveled from London to Windsor by special train to be present. Previous to leaving town, the three Ministers had attended a Cabinet council at Lord Palmerston's official residence. The O
ti American section of the London press had lashed the people in a perfect storm of rage, and a Cabinet Council, held with their noise and clamor ringing in the ears of the Ministers, had almost agreed on making the case a cause of war with our government. As a first result, the Europa was detained at Queenstown by order of the government to 2d inst. and took a Queen's messenger on board, with dispatches for Lord Lyons, in which, it is said, the Ambassador is instructed to demand from President Lincoln, in a firm and determined manner the restoration of Mason and Sildell to the traveling status and position which they enjoyed before Captain Wilkes took them on hand, as well as a disavowal of and government apology for the not of that officer from the San Jacinto to wards the Trent. Should war be undertaken by England she is recommended by a London paper to, first, raise the Union blockade of the Southern ports; secondly, blockade our Northern ports, and thirty, in conjunction wi

During the march Judge Curry, who is over 70 years of age, being much fatigued, came near giving out; but the captain of the guard, with oaths, gave orders to drive him up, and they punched and struck him in the most brutal manner with their guns, kicking him at the same time. W. B. Glave, who, owing to his feebleness, was also unable to keep up, the pace being double-quick, was treated in the same savage manner. Our only offence was that we dissented from the measures of Lincoln. I have given an unvarnished statement of facts, which will be attested by my fellow-prisoners, whenever they can be heard. I do not desire that the Federal prisoners shall be treated with less kindness; but I do desire that the Confederate Government shall take some action in behalf of its captive citizens, that they may not be murdered by slow degrees in the bastiles of the North. As the attention of the public has been directed by the press to my humble self, I deem it proper
