. Mitchel had better say nothing more of the reopening of the African Slave-Trade. If one people are to go to Africa for slaves, why may not another people go to Ireland for the same commodity? We hope we shall not offend Mr. Mitchel's Hibernian sensibilities by the question, but how would he like it if a French ship should carry off from the coast of Ireland, and into Slavery, a select assortment of his aunts, uncles and cousins; in fact, the cream of the Mitchel family? But the Africans are black, and the Irishmen are white — when they are not very dirty. True enough; but color has not heretofore saved the Irish people from the most terrible oppressionto ask this Irishman why the rule is not applicable to the condition of his own countrymen. But, out of our respect for an unhappy land, we will not pursue the subject. Many and grievous have been the burthens of Ireland; she has now another to bear in the apostasy of a man whom she once delighted to honor. September 9, 1857

Mr. Mitchel's Desires. A mysterious philosopher of Massachusetts somewhere has remarked, that consistency is the vice of little minds. If this aphorism is to be accepted, then we may suppose Mr. John Mitchel's intellect to be of gigantic proportions, and his brain by several ounces heavier than that of Webster or of Cuvier was found to be. For of all the erratic men of a race notoriously erratic, Patriot Mitchel has turned the most bewildering flip-flaps. As a political artist, he may be said, like some celebrated painters, to have changed his manner: and his last manner is precisely the opposite of his first. The denouncer of English tyranny; the champion of Irish liberty; the persecuted for freedom's sake; the man who nearly thrust his neck into a hempen cravat in his eagerness to emancipate Ireland; this man is about to start a newspaper somewhere at the South, solely devoted to apologies for oppression, to vindications of absolutism, to eulogiums of Slavery.

t manner is precisely the opposite of his first. The denouncer of English tyranny; the champion of Irish liberty; the persecuted for freedom's sake; the man who nearly thrust his neck into a hempen cravat in his eagerness to emancipate Ireland; this man is about to start a newspaper somewhere at the South, solely devoted to apologies for oppression, to vindications of absolutism, to eulogiums of Slavery. New light has broken upon the soul of John. He has been permitted, by a benignant Providence, to behold the errors of his early career, and to recognize the exceeding beauty of broad plantations well-stocked with broad-backed niggers. Since his conversion, John has grown in Pro-Slavery grace with a rapidity really marvelous. Since he made his first startling confession of his yearning for one plantation and one gang of fat field hands, John has advanced his pretensions, and now expresses a desire for two plantations and two gangs of adipose chattels. This is all very well. W

As a politica — n you, and for all our chattels, too, was the reply. Mr. Mitchel may succeed in convincing the Slaveholders, who are sadlful. They may insist upon the rule that half's fair.

We should like to know how well the Irishmen have helped themselves for many centuries. We have no desire to speak with the slightest disrespect of the many noble efforts of that people to throw off the yoke; but when an Irish patriot, as Mitchel professes to have been, argues that the black man is not fit for freedom because he is not free, it is perfectly proper for us to ask this Irishman why the rule is not applicable to the condition of his own countrymen. But, out of our respect for an unhappy land, we will not pursue the subject.
