poorer market than ever for their corn. With the falling off of this trade, the New-York merchants will be no longer able to pay off their British creditors in grain; they will, therefore, have to part with their gold; it will go up, and greenbacks will come down, and so raise a voice from the lower levels of society that will be trumpet-tongued for peace. To smother that voice, even now Mr. Lincoln has to keep an armed force not only in New-York and Kentucky, but in Ohio, Indiana, and other States. He is even now marching one up into Iowa, to put down there a cry for peace. He is likely to have occupation for all the recruits his conscription will give in keeping down his own people. Never were the chances of the South brighter. All that we have to do is to maintain the defensive, watch our chances, and strike whenever there is an opportunity for a good stroke, either with the sword or with the pen. I am, sir, yours truly, M. F. Maury Bowden, Cheshire, August 17, 1863.

ould have taken a shipload more of American flour had the Mississippi been open all the war? Chicago, and not New-Orleans, has been the grand grain market of the West, and except London, it is the greatest in the world. There was on the lower Mississippi a large trade in breadstuffs and provisions from the States above. This trade was chiefly with the planters of the South. But they have been despoiled, their plantations laid waste, their stock taken away, their houses burned, and they themselves banished. In short, those fighting farmers of the Upper Mississippi are likely soon to find out that it is Lincoln and his lieutenants, and nobody else, who has killed their goose of the golden eggs. Those cute Buckeyes, Suckers, and Hoosiers, as the denizens of Ohio and her sister States are called, are bound before long to discover this. And will the discovery be more likely to incline their hearts to peace, or to revive in them the war fervor? Not the latter certainly. This d

ither would, should, nor can do. Again, almost all the statesmen, either of England or of the continent, who have watched the progress of events since the war begt weeks of July ran so strong against the South, and from which our friends in England seem not to have recovered, let us look to those agencies that are to end the desperate game. They are endeavoring to raise the war-cry against France and England, hoping thereby to rally the people to arms, and intending, if successful, to , for exportation to foreign countries. Can any one in the trade pretend that England would have taken a shipload more of American flour had the Mississippi been opould dwell with me for a moment. Before this war the South sent annually to England some twelve or fifteen thousand shiploads of stuff, consisting chiefly, as is kets of all the South were shut off from the world, the harvests of France and England fell short, and the cotton ships were required to fetch bread from the North.

uly successes. Grant has become afraid of Johnston's decoy, which aimed to entice him off to the swamps and canebrakes of the Mississippi. He has, therefore, given up the so-called pursuit and taken to his darling gunboats. Banks has left Port Hudson, to be routed, it is said, beyond the Mississippi, by Taylor, with severe loss. Rosecrans has not sufficiently recovered from the blow that Bragg gave him last Christmas in Murfreesboro to follow up that retiring confederate, while Bragg haterms to the South. The leading newspapers of the North mention this, and not with disapprobation. Nor are these all the agencies that time and events are bringing into play on the side of peace and the South. The fall of Vicksburgh and Port Hudson was, according to those who are stirring the Northwestern people up to war, to open the way to market for them. Every English house in the American trade knows that the breadstuffs of Ohio and the North-west had, for years before the war, nea

him in which he did get something for his grain, and by reason of which the North had wherewithal to pay for importations. Hence the Yankees, profiting by scarcity here, have not felt the war as grievously as they are about to do. The full harvest here, in Ireland, and in France, and the like of which has not been known for many years, will mightily reduce this corn trade of the North. It is already a losing business, and the grain which is to come will be in the category of coals to Newcastle. Hence I infer that, notwithstanding the opening of the Mississippi, the North-western people will find a poorer market than ever for their corn. With the falling off of this trade, the New-York merchants will be no longer able to pay off their British creditors in grain; they will, therefore, have to part with their gold; it will go up, and greenbacks will come down, and so raise a voice from the lower levels of society that will be trumpet-tongued for peace.

New-York is threatening armed resistance to the Federal Government. New-York is becomiNew-York is becoming the champion of States' rights in the North, and to that extent is taking Southern ground. Mr. Lincoln has not only judged it expedient to unmuzzle the press in NNew-York, and deemed it prudent to give vent to free speech there, but he is evidently afraid to enforce the conscription in the Empire State. The conscription act it abroad. They went up to the Lakes, and so, via canal and rail, to Boston and New-York, for exportation to foreign countries.

Witness Burnside's decree, putting, in violation of all legal right and constitutional power, the State of Kentucky under martial law, and that, too, just as the elections are coming off in that State. He orders the Commissioners last steamer brings the announcement, in the jubilant rhetoric of the Yankee press: The Union ticket has been elected in Kentucky by a large majority. Well it might. There was no other ticket allowed. Why, but for this growing hostility to Lincoln and the war, put Kentucky under martial law at this late day at all? Simply because of the growing activity and increasing energy of those influences which are at work in the cause of peace, and therefore on the side of the sword of the South. Tmpet-tongued for peace.
