is empire at any price. "One power on this continent, one Government, and one alone; let it be Jeff. Davis's, or Abe Lincoln's, or --." These terms, in which our special correspondent expresses "Democratic ideas," represent probably the dominant feeling of those who are struggling for Union. But that Union has become an impossibility.--The Southerners would now refuse to live under the same Government with the Yankees on any condition whatever, and there are Abolitionists enough in the New England States and pure Republicans enough in the Northwest to forbid any convention in the interests of Slavery. While the object of the war is thus unattainable, its cost is absolutely marvellous. Nothing in the familiar examples of Transatlantic exaggeration approaches to the dimensions of this reality. The Federal army costs about as much in one month as our army cost in the whole year of 1854, though that was the first year of the Crimean War. The charge of a battalion of infantry, 1,

th has rejected their advances, and their successive lodgments at Hatter as and Port Royal have not been attended with the least profit to their cause. This fact alone ought to be decisive of the hopelessness of the war. Nine millions of people, inhabiting a territory of 900,000 square miles, and animated by one spirit of resistance, can never be subdued. The hatred existing between North and South becomes more manifest day after day. A Southern journal of good repute argues that the Confederate States ought, on pure principles of policy, to abstain from all intercourse with the Federal States, even after the conclusion of peace, and to treat the Yankees exactly as the Japanese treat Europeans. It is remarkable that, while the Confederates appear so resolute and so united, the rumors of treason on the Federal side should be so serious and constant. We never hear that the Unionists get any aid or encouragement from anybody in the opposite camp or any inhabitant of Southern terri

of the South. The Confederates were either all of one mind at first, or they have become so under the influence of the contest itself. The Federal have had ample opportunities of tasting the temper of the Seceders and of liberating the sentiment of "loyalty, " if it was anywhere kept down by violences; but in these trials they have never found the slightest encouragement. Even the slave population of the South has rejected their advances, and their successive lodgments at Hatter as and Port Royal have not been attended with the least profit to their cause.

against the entrenchments by which Washington is protected, and behind which the Federal troops would fight to great advantage. Gen. McClellan dares not invade a country impassable for his artillery and baggage, and occupied by a wary enemy who has twice taken him at a disadvantage, and who could probably perplex him more than ever by retreating before him without a blow. In the remote districts the successes of the belligerents are pretty evenly balanced. Against the Federal victory at Somerset the Confederates now claim to set off the news of a victory received at St. Louis; out in no district whatever — neither in the interior nor on the coast — has such superiority been displayed as would give any prospect of the termination of the strife. Of the contrary, if we are to draw any conclusion at all from the barren History of the campaign, it is that each party is powerful enough to arrest the progress of the other, but powerless for any thing beyond. The one great fact establ

The relative advantages of the rival forces have been not unfairly contrasted by Southern critics. The Confederateand, are superior in artillery, in supplies, and in materials generally; they have larger resources to back them, and Gen.

The charge of a battalion of infantry, 1,000 strong, in General McClellan's force, all military costs included, would be 200,000l, or at the rate of 200l a head. By this reckoning an Ameri

In more than one of the chief towns of the North there is a Salt-disguised leaning to the Confederate cause; in fact, the principles of the Unionists have only been maintained in supremacy by espionage and terrorism. There is far more reason to suppose that the South has allies in the North than that the North can fled any adherents in the South. The true desire of the North is empire at any price.

His efforts can hardly have been thrown away, but his troops, after all, are but soldiers of six months standing, so that, if discipline is to be their chief reliance, they can have but little to depends upon.--There is probably not a battalion in his army which would be considered in this country as qualified for active service. These accounts give a sufficient explanation of the military inaction which is at once so costly and so unpopular.

The War in America. [From the London Times, Feb. 7.] A comparison between America in August, 1861, and America in February, 1862, will simply show that the citizens of the Great Republic have contrived to spend more money in a shorter time, and to less purpose, than any people who ever lived on the face of the earth. That is literately all that has been done in the States of the Union from the last rising of Parliament up to the present day. The North cannot invade the South; the South can do no more than keep the North at bay. For the more purpose of this mutual checkmate, a sum of money has been expended of such incredible magnitude that all similar charges appear insignificant in comparison. We only know the coat in curred by one of the two belligerents upon his armaments, but these probably exceed the coats of all the armies and navies of all the States of Europe put together.
