Government, if it be not restrained by fear, will institute a war of total extermination against the Confederate States, and that massacre will be added to pillage, in all its future operations. They already threaten to hang Messrs. Slidell and Mason, if we hang Corcoran and Cogswell, and they hope by this threat to accomplish the murder of our privateersmen without the risk of retaliation. That is a fearful mistake, and if pushed home, It may produce consequences at which the whole world will stand aghast. The people of the Confederate States admire Messrs. Slidell and Mason.

The Albion admit that "a belligerent may stop and search any merchant vessel any where at sea, on suspicion that the latter may be, in whole or in part, employed in the enemy's service," The offence in the present case conss dissolves into thinnest air. We admit the unquestioned right of belligerents to visit and search neutral merchant ships; the Trent is a public vessel. An enemy's ambassador may, unquestionably, be stopped upon the high sea; Alesers Slidell and Mason are not ambassadors. Private ships fraudulcutly carrying dispatches (says Sir W.
