n and others. Nevertheless, old "Fuss and Feathers" managed to scramble off with a vast share of glory from the Mexican war, and became Lieutenant-General, which never consoled him, however, for the election of Taylor to the Presidency, or for his own defeat when running for that office! Of late years, it has been fashionable with the Lieutenant-General, whom his devotees describe as the great General of the age, compared with whom Napoleon and Washington were small potatoes, and Marshal Pelissier, old General Hess and Count Todleben, mere farthing rushlights, to play the part of the Great Pacificator. He has been solicitous to have it understood that Mars is capable of being pacific and beneficent; that terrific and annihilating as Wingfield is, when fairly roused, yet the very consciousness of his awful powers of destructiveness makes him most reluctant to put them in exercise. Consequently, on various occasions, he has gone about the country, now to Maine and now to Califor

presence, nor is he destitute of the art of making himself invisible when he pleases. His staff are excellent men, I am told, so far as my personal experience goes, nor could any commander be served more efficiently than the General is by such men as Brigadier General Vanvilet, or Colonel Hunson, notwithstanding the absence of a good deal of stiffness which marks the approach to some headquarters, as General found when he and his brother Commissioner sought in vain to obtain access to Marshal Pelissier in the Crimea. the General, a short time ago an employee on the General Illinois Railway, but still with so much of the old spirit in him that he studied closely all the movements of that short Italian campaign, of which he is not doomed to give a counter part in this part of the world, is a nocturne, and at the close of long laborious days, works hard and fast late into the night, till sleep pursues and overtakes him, when he surrenders readily, for he has one of those natures wh
rom Fremont. The latter is, indeed, favored above all men, because he is an incarnation of faith to millions--"the substance of things hoped for-- evidence of things not seen"--so he is fated and besworded and berhymed, because he represents an undeveloped idea. When he was removed from his command the officers of one of his regiments assembied and voted that he was a good General and ought not tobe removed. To Americans, save those in the regular army, that proceeding does not appear remarkable. Just imagine the officers of a regiment of Zonaves passing similar resolutions when Canrober: was superged so by Pelissier, or those of a Highland regiment acting in the same way when Sir Coin Campbell was passed over by General Godrington! A peculiar people indeed! A very great people, too, with a future on this continent, which, if not exactly that the phrenzied fights of their crators, when they expaliate before King But kum ( Bunenmbe) would make it, must be grand and prosperous.
prevent the necessity of going into quarantine, we have a striking comment upon the Yankee character, upon their conduct of the war, and upon their sympathy for the slave Chase, of Ohio, spoke the truth for once, when he said they loved not the negro, but they hated his master. If all negrodom had one head to morrow, they would rejoice in cutting it off. To characterize this dead as infernal, were to use too mild a term for the occasion. It was more horrible than that perpetrated by Pelissier, when he smoked 500 Arabs — men, women, and children — to death in a cave. It cannot be that God will smile on a cause upheld by such horrible atrocities. It makes our blood curdle to think of them. Lincoln, it seems, is determined to run again, and the New York Herald is determined to support him. There is a baseness about old Bennett that exceeds the aggregate badness of the whole universe. He pretends to be a conservative and supports Lincoln. --He pretends to hate the Abolition
ny days, we very much suspect, before we shall have both. We think is scarcely within the range of possibility that things can remain much longer stationary at Vicksburg. Grant is said to have pushed his trenches fearfully near to our works, but as yet we are under no apprehensions. We remember Sebastopol. We remember that it was defended from the side on which it was attacked by earthworks hastily constructed, when the enemy was within a day's march of the place. We remember that Pelissier had to push his parallels within twenty yards of the Russian works, before he dared to rush, even with the grenadiers of the Imperial Guard, upon that " feu d' enfer" which be described so feelingly, and which, at that day, had never been equalled. Remembering all this, and taking into consideration the cautions disposition of Grant, we are not disposed to believe that he will attempt an assault until he shall have pushed his works close up to those of the besieged, and that will require

Butler. The Philadelphia Inquirer says: "Gen. Butler proposes to make the rebels accede to his terms of exchange. The remedy will be unpleasant; but Pelissier performed more barbarous acts in Algiers." What new barbarity Butler proposes to perpetrate it is impossible to conjecture.--Marshal Pelissier smoked some hundreds of Arabs to death in a cave in Algiers; but if he proved himself more of a devil than a man by that horrid act, he had at least the redeeming quality of courage, a Marshal Pelissier smoked some hundreds of Arabs to death in a cave in Algiers; but if he proved himself more of a devil than a man by that horrid act, he had at least the redeeming quality of courage, a thing which the pettifogging lawyer of Massachusetts, who is strutting about in a Major General's uniform, has not the faintest conception of But the greater the coward, the more cruel and bloodthirsty; and the Inquirer is too modest by half when it gives the palm of inhumanity to the grim old soldier of France, over the white livered Yankee militia officer who hung an innocent man at New Orleans, and has been robbing and murdering harmless and helpless people ever since. But Butler may rest a
