act of tyranny under the pretence of maintaining the Union. It does not believe in them; it would be glad to get rid of them and replace them by better men; but they are in power; they stand as the representatives, however unworthy, of the United States; and, hoping against hope, the people of the North obey them because opposition might seem like an abandonment of a cherished design. We do not think that in the days of England's fiercest struggle with the French Republic the Government of Pitt would have ventured on such an act as the trial by court-martial of a private person for making a speech against the war, and recommending his hearers to agitate constitutionally for the overthrow of the Ministry.--Yet it was for an offence precisely similar that Mr. Vallandigham, one of the most prominent politicians of the West, has been sentenced to two years banishment to a miserable islet — a sentence graciously commuted by the President into expulsion from his home and from the limit of
The cotton loan. --On a certain occasion, while Burke was making a great speech in the House of Commons, he quoted the well-known maxim, "Magnum vectigal pessima est parsimonia"--a heavy tax is the worst economy. Either through inadvertence, or because he knew no better, he pronounced the i in vectigal short. He was instantly corrected by Pitt, who said in a half-whisper, loud enough to be heard all over the hall, "vectigal," "vectigal." "Vectigal, then," retorted Burke. "I thank the gentleman for correcting me. since it gives me an excuse for repeating a maxim which ought to be engraven on the heart of every legislator. 'Magnum vectigal pessima est parsimonia. '" We are told we committed a sad blunder the other day in confounding the national loan of France with the credit mobilier, which, we are further told, is a tax on moveables, as its name seems to imply. We hope we shall be considered sufficiently candid when we admit that the mistake arose from sheer ignorance on
domiciliary interference. Let any man who can, in the face of all this, wonder that Ireland hates England, and would be glad to see her sunk in the bottom of the sea. As Nicholas filled up the places his Siberian exiles had left vacant, so Great Britain seems to be steadily pursuing a plan which will end by depopulating Ireland, and leaving it to be filled up by an English population. It has been found that emigration can effect this object better than the wholesale murders of Cromwell and Pitt, and therefore emigration is encouraged to the utmost. When a third people are struggling for their liberty one would hardly expect to see Ireland and Poland banding against them. Yet that is precisely what we do see at the present moment. The Irish and the Poles are the foremost in the Yankee ranks — seeking to subject us to a despotism infinitely worse than that from which they have themselves escaped. The Poles, like the Germans, are all Red Republicans. Liberty, equality, and fra
rd about any help from England. Even so it was when Nicholas a second time conquered Poland, and sent thousands of her children to Siberia Not a word of help from Old England, of whose generosity so much has been said — by Englishmen, Yet in all three of these cases the sentiment of the English people was unanimous, or very nearly so. So it was with regard to the French revolution. At least nine-tenths of the Kingdom sympathized with the French, and yet in eighteen months after it broke out Pitt had them even at war with France. So it was with regard to Hungary, which was trampled under foot by Russia in utter defiance of the nonintervention doctrine and of the united voices of four-fifths of the English people. The truth is, the voice of the people, even since the Parliamentary Reform, goes a very little way with its rulers. At least, they must believe so who tell us that the English people are so vehemently in our favor — a statement which we shall believe when we see better pro

These prisoners represent fifteen regiments besides Brig. Gen. Heckman, who has figured quite conspicuously in the campaign on the Southside. The Col. White, mentioned above, is a brother of the White of the Pennsylvania Legislature, who was for some time a prisoner in our hands. It was confidently stated b
the usual salutation "Pretty Polly" he would only answer "Bom." In a word, Poor Polly was deranged. Tralaigar had not only killed Nelson and destroyed Napoleon's navy, but it had bereft Polly of her senses. The terrible cannonade of that awful day was forever after in her ears. To every term of coaxing and endearment she ever after could be brought to answer nothing but "Bom." So it is with the quadrilateral of the Times. The bullet that gained the battle of Austerlitz, in Moravia, killed Pitt in London. The bullet that gained the battle of Solferino made Raymond a madman for life. It served him as Gen Andrew Jackson said the explosion of the Peacemaker served Col Benton. It blew out the few brains he had without destroying his life. "Guns, bombs, bastions, batteries, bayonets, bullets," now form the everlasting staple of his talk. He has never forgotten, and he never will forget, that awful race of Solferino, in which he so far distanced all competitors as to entitle the
We give below some additional intelligence from our latest Northern papers: The New Secretary of the Yankee Treasury. The Yankees are painting up their new Secretary of the Treasury. His name is Pitt, which is considered a big thing in Yankeedom, though it is suggested that if he expects to pay all the debts Lincoln has contracted, he must be the "bottomless pit." A letter to the Washington Republican describing him says: William Pitt Fessenden stands at this time, without a doubt, at the head of the American Senate. I suppose him to be nearly six feet in height, possibly two inches under that measurement, and he would not, in my judgment, weigh over one hundred and fifty or sixty pounds. His face long and rather severe in expression, heavy eyebrows, dark brown hair streaked with gray, wore rather long and with a slight inclination to curl. I judge him to be about fifty five years of age. I should not think him a man of strong friendship, and yet he seems to be o
s and successful toil. Nay, we are told it is greatly superior to St. Stephen's chapel (before it was burnt and rebuilt), in which the British House of Commons sat for several hundred years, and in which originated all the great measures that have made England what she is.--With all its marble (paid for out of Southern money), the New Capitol at Washington never heard so wise a man speak as of old, or Burke of later times, or so eloquent a man as St. John and Chatham in the last century, or Pitt and Fox in this. It never beheld a ceremony so august as the trial and condemnation of a King by the representatives of a nation, or of a pro- consul for the misgovernment of fifty millions of subjects, or of a Queen Consort for alleged high crimes and misdemeanors. It is not encircled with the half of a thousand years, big as it is, fine as the attempt has been to make it. Its whole history is modern and vulgar, like the taste in which it was conceived and the low-brod Yankees that desecra
es. England, grumbling, growling England — then, "for the first time and for the last time, presented the astonishing picture of a nation supporting, without murmur, a widely-extended and costly war, and a people, hitherto torn with conflicting parties, so united in the service of the Commonwealth that the voice of faction had ceased in the land, and any discordant whisper was heard no more." But then a nation would be hard to satisfy that, from universal disaster, was raised by the hand of Pitt to a career of the most uninterrupted success ever known in the history of Christianity. With this exception, an Executive, in war times, must expect to be the target for such of his countrymen as like a victim constantly to practice upon. He must expect to be pounded, and maimed, and belabored, as did the amiable Quill, the image of the ancient Admiral, whom he was always beating with iron pokers, and screwing gimlets into, and sticking forks into his eyes, and cutting his name on him,
