foot promptly and flatly. "Every State of Europe," says the Times, "acknowledged the Republic when it was governed by a Constitution permitting slavery as fully as the Southern States permit it now.--Why should its abandonment by the Confederacy buy a recognition that is withheld for many other reasons?" Precisely! What could be more sensible? Nay, the Times goes further; and, as if to put us out of our misery in case we entertain any eccentric notion of a European protectorate, says that England will certainly decline it, and it knows no other European Power which would accept the offer. It is the case of the Netherlands over again — no one would receive us as a gift. We may, therefore, save ourselves the trouble of abolishing slavery. The best authority now assures us that slavery is not the reason we do not obtain European recognition. The truth is, neither Europe nor the United States desire the abolition of slavery.

The truth is, neither Europe nor the United States desire the abolition of slavery. It is indispensable to the commerce of the world. It is valuable, besides to Europe in drawing off the attention of its own pauper population from the contemplation of their domestic grievances. The imaginaut has given us to understand that the interests of Europe would not permit any European State to accept the Southern Confederacy even if we should tender them the gift. It is true, no rational being in the country has seriously entertained any such suggestion; but, after such mad projects as have been broached, there is no knowing what moonshine dreams may next flit across the human brain. Let us understand them once for all, that we must either belong to ourselves or to the United States.
William T. Sherman (search for this): article 2
There is an amount of talent, energy and vim employed, at present, in burglarious invasions in this city which might be valuably occupied in a war of defence. Grant, Sherman, and other military burglars, might take lessons in their profession from some of the accomplished house-breakers of this capital. The time was when a quiet citizen of Richmond could walk at midnight from Screamersville to Rocketts without dreaming of the garroter; when he could go to bed and awake and find "the situation" in the larder unchanged.--The time was when watchmen could snore with impunity and dogs had nothing to bark at but the moon. A very difference has arrived. A division of sappers and miners, composed of the most skillful engineers of the continent, is now quartered in the very heart of the capital, and lays bare, with unerring precision, every cellar and store-house in the town. It carries on its operations with an audacity equal to its genius, and is accompanied by heavy baggage tr

Let the commanding general promise them all the provost they can capture, we would like to see the Yankee bolts and bars that will keep them out. If they never come back again, so much the better.

appers and miners, composed of the most skillful engineers of the continent, is now quartered in the very heart of the capital, and lays bare, with unerring precision, every cellar and store-house in the town. It carries on its operations with an audacity equal to its genius, and is accompanied by heavy baggage trains, which carry off the spoils of war. It is evident that the occasion requires special measures of protection. The civil police could much more hopefully be pitted against General Sheridan than against the sagacious and successful raiders who are now laying the town under contribution.

Canada (Canada) (search for this): article 3
The New York Herald scouts the idea that, for the purpose of obtaining assistance of the Confederacy to drive the French out of Mexico, the United States would acknowledge Confederate independence. "No," exclaims the Herald, "not to obtain Mexico, Canada or South America will we let her go!" This is evidently a very valuable country; not by any means the pauper establishment, dependent upon the bounty of the North, that it was the custom to represent it in former days. "We will not let the people go," quoth Pharaoh. Well, we shall see. George the Third was equally determined in his time, but he had to relax his grip notwithstanding. If the people have not become a degenerate race, the obstinacy of Yankee tyrants will prove equally unavailing. As to uniting with the United States to drive France out of Mexico, it will be time enough for the Herald to scout the idea of such a proposition when it is made. The Confederacy is pleased with its neighbor on the Rio Grande,
