Under this contract of alliance, the war of the Revolution was successfully waged, and resulted in the treaty of peace with Great Britain in 1783, by the terms of which the several States were, such by name recognized to be independent.

Such a policy of coercion, therefore, would be both short-sighted and ineffectual. The new tariff, for which Mr. Lincoln is not responsible, though he will not be unwilling to accept its consequences, is an unwise measure on the part of those who framed it. * * President Lincoln has the interest of the Union to protect, and Lord Palmerston is bound to defend those of Great Britain; but the former cannot be allowed to blockade our flag out of the Southern ports, or the latter be stimulated to any particular advocacy of Northern ambition.
