is a necessity on one side, and Exeter Hall is a power in the State on the other; and Mr. Russell seems to be balancing his attention between the two, like the ass between two bundles of hay. If Great Britain can hesitate in her choice between fanaticism and cotton, Mr. Russell is less of an ass than we suppose. --We do not believe she can hesitate long; we know she must bow the knee to cotton in the end; and if Mr. Russell, especially after the rout at Manassas, can be induced by Seward and Scott to believe that England can get the cotton without the consent of the South, he is not the man whom the Times should send to America at such a crisis, if it has much regard for the interests of its own people. The South is master of the situation, both as regards England and the North. It does not expect the sympathy of England — her interests, and these alone, must determine her course. We understand the power of fanaticism in Great Britain, and do not underrate the violence and veno
nd that we will co-operate with her as far as may be in our power to do so. Resolved, That the Secretary of the meeting he instructed to communicate a copy of these proceedings to Mrs. Hopkins.

If we are well informed — and we believe that we are — Lincoln had pledged himself to deliver the tobacco of Virginia to the French Government by the 1st of August on this condition, the French Government had authorized its agents to purchase. The rates were concluded, but with the express understanding that the Government at Washington would be prepared to deliver the tobacco on the 1st of August. 21st of July.--time passes, But by exterminating the Confederate army, Scott hoped to enter Richmond in triumph on the 22d; and the tobacco could then have been delivered at the date agreed upon. But Lincoln, who has probably not read Lafontaine, had sold the bear skin before killing the bear. The question now is to know how the French Government will take the hazardous joke. It is with the same arrogance that Lincoln has promised the European powers to deliver to them the cotton of the South in the middle of October. We shall now see if these gentlemen of th

James Monroe, now of New York, formerly belonged to the U. S. Army, was one of its most accomplished and efficient officers, and was with old Scott in Mexico. He resigned about eight years ago. I regret that our citizens, even the ladies, have been misrepresented by some injudicious letter-writer, whose unjust statements have appeared in print I know the gratifying fact that our citizens have acted liberally with regard to the soldiers, that money has been voted, clothing and provisions furnished, the houses thrown "open wide" for their welcome reception and hospitable entertainment, and that the ladies especially have acted most

In former days old Fuss and Feathers bore off the palm in his knowledge of the subject, and his "tactics," for so many years the text book of the U. S. Army, had so overshadowing a popularity that no other writer dare enter the field in opposition to the doughty General.--The times, however, are changed, and so are the men. Scott and his tactics are fossil remainders. Younger military writers have borrowed all of his system worth translating to our modern time, and have added thereto the fruits of a later and more enlarged experience. In this department of literature the South is pre-eminent. The efforts at publishing of late by Southern firms are of the most creditable kind. Books are gotten up in a style unsurpassed by Northern houses.--Among the military books lately issued none surpass Gilham's Manual, publis
