off every soldier who was sick of the service. Members of Congress desired to be popular in their districts, and answered every call upon them. Colonels of regiments and Generals of brigades had the same desire of popularity with their men; and one and all have aided in this depleting process till the sum total of absentees is enormous." Gen. Cameron's Presentation to the Emperor of Russia. [From the Harrisburg Telegraph] From private letters received in this city direct from St. Petersburg, we learn that Gen. Cameron, Minister to Russia, had safely arrived at the capital of the nation, where his legation is established, and that he also had his first interview with the Emperor Alexander. According to the rigid etiquette of the Russian Court, it is not usual for the Emperor to giant an interview until the lapse of some time after the arrival of a Minister, but in this case an audience was almost immediately granted, and the reception made the more cordial by the earnests s
States, and the value of banking futilities being ready for the redemption of that trade which will be carried on through new and independent channels. The Manchester Examiner and Times says; "The object of this Bank is distinctly stated to be to sender the South able to carry on their financial and export operations entirely independent of New York." Poland. At Londek the Russians had to retreat on the 16th, after an important engagement with the Poles. Russell has addressed a circular to the British Minister at all the European capitals, whose object is to induce the foreign Cabinets to support his dispatch to Lord Maple at St. Petersburg, dated March 4th. It is believed the Cabinets of Vienna and Berlin will object, Spain has not yet acceded. Nothing is said of other Gallants. The Provisional Government of Poland will publish a paper at the headquarters of the army in the national language, and also in French, to give true accounts of military operations.
potism has made in subduing the souls of its victims, and rendering them fit subjects for the iron rule of the tyrant. Every manly feeling, every free aspiration, every independent thought, seems to have been crushed out of the souls and bodies of these unhappy people. They no longer even claim to be a free people, governed by a written Constitution, and laws of their own enactment. They are as absolutely slaves as though they were the subjects of Alexander II., as though Chicago were St. Petersburg, and every petty military tyrant a marshal of the Prussian Emperor. And yet these are the people who promised themselves that freedom would run riot with the election of Abraham Lincoln; that there should no longer be slavery, or the semblance of slavery, from the St. Johns to the Rio Grande; that professed themselves willing to go on a crusade against the whole world in favor of freedom, and that have converted the Southern States into a huge slaughter-pen in pursuit of their favorite
Reported Russo-Yankee alliance. --The Vienna Press, of August 19th, has the following: We hear that communications have been received from an English source, according to which we must prepare-ourselves for the approaching ratification of an offensive and defensive alliance between St. Petersburg and Washington. This eventuality, should this somewhat speculative information be confirmed, would principally affect the bearings of the Mexican and Polish questions.
raising funds to supply the Confederate army with medicines, surgical instruments, &c., and to day he gives a dinner at the Grand Hotel in Paris to several leading Southerners and sympathizers, including Capt. Maffit, of the Florida. And, by the way, this terrible little destructive, in a condition better than new, will leave Brest in about ten days, to resume her mission on the mighty deep.--Maffit will have to remain some two months longer in the hands of the Paris doctors. Capt. Hartstein, of the Confederate Navy, is very ill at Munich. Lieuts, Morris, Campbell. Lee, and Barron, of the same service, are now in Paris waiting for a ship. Capt. Blakeley, who has just arrived from St. Petersburg, is much chagrined at the reported bursting of his "big gun," at Charleston. He ordered at once, by telegram, a brother to the monster to be made at once. No gun of that calibre, he says, can stand a high elevation; and for point blank work he thinks nothing can stand against them.
Russian Tale of giving up Poland. --The Russe, of St. Petersburg, has a remarkable article demanding whether it is really an advantage for Russia to retain the kingdom of Poland, which can only be held by the constant exertion of force. The article comes to the conclusion that Russia would obtain both happiness and liberty of action by giving up Poland altogether, when this can be done honorably and without the appearance of compulsion, and that every enlightened Russian, who is really the friend of his country, would hall with joy the attainment of such a result.

peers in the British House of Lords have delivered judgment in the Alexandra case adverse to the Crown, and dismissed the appeal from the judgments of the Courts. Mr. Stansfield, who was implicated in the Mazzini conspiracy against the Emperor Napoleon, has resigned his position in the Government. Garibaldi was enthusiastically welcomed by the civil authorities and citizens on his arrival at Southampton, England, on the 4th inst. The Courts of London, Rome, Vienna, Berlin, St. Petersburg, Spain and France have agreed to recognize the Emperor of Mexico on his accession. He would shortly take his departure for Vera Cruz. In the House of Lords, Earl Russell incidentally referred to the spurious report of Mr. Mallory, the Secretary of the Confederate States Navy, and intimated that he was originally led by Mr. Seward to accept the report as genuine. But, said the Earl, Mr. Seward states that, having made further inquiry, he finds it to have been altogether a forgery.
u have offered us the distressing spectacle of the sacrifice of merit to caprice and personal political interests; and this in a republic, in the name and under the plea of popular sovereignty. And, to cap the climax, we are obliged to hear definitions like this: An unconditionally loyal man is one who, although not satisfied with the measures taken by the Government, approves them all and gives his constant support. It seems almost incredible. Are we are in Constantinople, in St. Petersburg, in Rome, or in Paris? Are we the descendants of those proud Saxons who refused to succumb to any yoke, or the illegitimate offspring of cardinals seeking to secure fortune and greatness by a perpetual worship? Are we really the descendants of those disciples of Luther and Calvin, who, rather than subject their reason to an authority which they despised, preferred to expatriate themselves to these shores, where, through the agency of liberty, they founded our national greatness, which
which desolate this continent, and which they profess deeply to deplore. The disregard of this just, humane, and Christian public duty by the nations of Europe is the more remarkable from the fact that authentic expression has long since been given by the Governments of both France and England to the conviction that the United States are unable to conquer the Confederacy. It is now more than two years since the Government of France announced officially to the Cabinets of London and St. Petersburg its own conclusion that the United States were unable to achieve any decisive military success. In the answers sent by those Powers no intimation of a contrary opinion was conveyed; and it is notorious that, in speeches, both in and out of Parliament, the members of Her Britannic Majesty's Government have not hesitated to express this conviction in unqualified terms. The denial of our right under these circumstances is so obviously unjust, and discriminates so unfairly in favor of the
