ish Government has chapped another pressed, supposed to be intended for the service of the Confederates, on the Clyde. The memorial Deplomatique maintains that fifteen out of twenty invited Powers have accepted the invitation to the proposed Congress. According to the London Post, the English Government declines giving its adherence. A semi- official paper of Paris states that the Congress will be occupied with the questions of Poland, the German Duchies, the States of the Church, Venice, and the reforms to be introduced in Romania. It was reported in Madrid that two American ships which had arms for the San Domingo insurgents were destroyed by a Spanish vessel off that island. Denmark has called out 11,000 men and fitted out six war vessels. The Prince of Augustenburg has notified his assumption of the Dukedom of Schleswig-Holstein to all the German Governments. A large meeting of his supporters has been held in Hamburg, and another was to take place in Hanover.
ts lawfulness or Divine sanction. They care not whether it is lawful, or has the Divine sanction or any other sanction. They simply understand that it pays, and anything that pays is their highest law and the only god that they worship.--The ruinous results of every attempt ever made under the sun to cultivate the earth, especially in hot countries, by free negro labor, is as familiar to their minds as it is to ours. They have no more idea of permitting the South to become a Jamaica or St. Domingo than we have. They will simply take the administration of the labor into their own humane and merciful hands. Of all the miserable victims of a Yankee conquest of the South none will be as miserable as the slaves. Of all the woes their race has ever suffered none will equal the horrors which will be piled mountain high upon their heads should they ever exchange Southern for Yankee masters. We have only to look at the cruelty of their ship captains to free white sailors, and at the mar

he wild frenzy of excitement and turn into peaceful channels the thoughts of those who had but recently been invested with power in the United States. After a lengthy but not overdrawn recital of the cruelties which have been practiced by the enemy during the war, the committee say that, "disregarding the teachings of the approved writers on international law, and the practice and claims of his own Government in its purer days, President Lincoln has sought to convert the South into a St. Domingo, by appealing to the cupidity, lists, ambition, and ferocity of the slave." The condition of those States which have been in the complete or partial control of the enemy is referred to as furnishing the best evidences of subjugation, at which the fanaticism of the North is arriving. Upon this subject the committee say: Missouri, a magnificent empire of agricultural and mineral wealth, is to day a smoking ruin and the theatre of most revolting cruelties and barbarisms. The mini
rich treasures of blood vouchsafed to us that of the negro is the most precious, because it is the most unlike any other that enters into the composition of our natural life." Then follows a succession of obscenities too indecent for publication, winding up with a conclusion black enough for his own lost soul. "It will be a sad misfortune," he says, "if this war should end without a black General in command of a white or mixed body of troops. We want an American Toussain L'Overture (the St. Domingo chief) to give the black his proper position on this continent, and the day is coming. The South will fight to the last; but it is the eternal fitness of things that they should finally be subdued by the black soldier. After that, the lands of the South must be divided among the negroes, who are its only loyal population." Such are the sentiments, continues the correspondent of the Times, which elicit the approval of crowded audiences of educated Americans, (Yankees,) of whom a lar
s that the American Democrats could not have nominated an especial peace candidate for the Presidency, as the Northern people would not yet "submit to the necessity of putting an end to the war." The Kearsarge was cruising in search of the privateer Florida. George Peabody, the London-American banker, had formally retired from business life. The business of the house will be conducted by the two remaining partners. An influential Madrid journal urges Spain to settle the war in St. Domingo, the Queen retaining possession of the three principal cities. The Japanese batteries had fired on the British war vessels which had been threatening them for some time. The Confederate cotton loan rallied from 57 to 64. Consols closed in London on the 1st of October at 88 1 8 to 88 1 4 for money. The Liverpool cotton market was irregular and easier, with little inquiry, and prices were weak on the 1st of October. Breadstuffs were quiet and steady. Provisions quiet.
We have received New York papers of Wednesday, the 7th instant. Lincoln's message — the rebels must be Subdued. The message of Lincoln was read in Congress on Tuesday. It is rather dull and uninteresting. It opens with intelligence about the state of affairs in China, San Domingo and Chili, and some history of rebellions which have occurred in those countries, which are not very interesting to our people. The only reference to the Florida affair is the following: Nevertheless, unforseen political difficulties have arisen, especially in Brazilian and British ports and on the northern boundary of the United States, which have required, and are likely to continue to require, the practice of constant vigilance and a just and conciliatory spirit on the part of the United States, as well as of the nations concerned, and their Governments. The following shows the Yankee exhibit of their debt: The public debt on the 1st day of July last, as appears by the bo
compensation of the proprietors was twenty millions of pounds sterling, or not half the value of the slave, and in many instances not a third. From the date of that act the agricultural produce of the island gradually disappeared, until it became a wilderness in comparison with its former fertility. The planters never received anything but the interest of the twenty millions; and their once garden like estates have returned, like the negroes, to the freedom of nature. The island of St. Domingo, before the emancipation of the negroes, produced seven hundred millions pounds of sugar, being more than all the rest of the world put together. After emancipation, it was compelled to import that article.--Let us hear Napoleon: "Had any of your philosophic Liberals come out to Egypt to proclaim liberty to the blacks or the Arabs, I would have hung him up to the mast-head. In the West Indies, similar enthusiasts have delivered over the whites to the ferocity of the blacks; and yet they
five to four and three quarters per cent. The Progress, of Lyons, announces that the cotton crisis is drawing to a close in the Department of the Rhine, where considerable arrivals of raw material have revived that branch of industry. The Paris Bourse, on the 23d, was flat. Rentes were easier, and closed at 65f. 20 The Spanish Cortes opened on the 22d of December. The Queen's speech gives hope of a prompt solution of the Peruvian question, but is silent on the subject of St. Domingo. She says that Spain has not any ambitious projects upon the South American republics. As regards Mexico, the Queen's speech says that the official communication of Maximilian's accession to the throne of Mexico is the commencement of a new era in the political relations between Spain and Mexico, hitherto interrupted. Another paragraph in the speech is as follows: "I am bound to state that the general condition of the monarchy, considered in all its extent, is not satisfactory
h will bring to them from vassalage and degradation. Sleeping in soldiers' graves, but without a stain upon their shields, immortal in history and song, liberated forever from human malice and rancor, they may bless the sharp steel that saves them from the living death of shame and subjugation. But if they fall, they will fall like Samson, dragging down with them the pillars of the Philistine temple. Their grave will be the grave of the prosperity and the liberties of their enemies. Their enemies may appropriate their sunny land, but it will only be a Jamaica or St. Domingo. Fanaticism, having worked its work of ruin here, will then turn upon the North and breed social, religious and political convulsions there that will ultimately compel a military despotism. The Puritans will not always be permitted, even in the Northern States, to give the law in politics and morals; and at their own doors the tide of blood, ebbing from the South, will yet crimson every Northern household.
n. Even when the veil has fallen, and we discover that we had been duped and humbugged, the subject is not a pleasant one for reflection, and we would dismiss it altogether. Edward Everett was a great scholar, a great orator, and once an ardent champion of the Constitution. No one was more earnest and emphatic than he in his advocacy of Southern rights. He would shoulder his musket and fight for the South if its slave institutions were assailed. He was fond of pointing to Jamaica and St. Domingo to show the evil effects of abolishing slavery. And then to see this man, as soon as that attempt was made, urging it on with just as much vehemence as he had deprecated it; talking about his musket against the South; strewing his rhetorical pinks and carnations around the footsteps of Lincoln, and devoting the land of Washington, where he had been received with open hands and hearts, to fire and sword. For his own fame, he ought to have died before the war, and carried the secret of hi
