New York police in Southern Cities. The Baltimore American states that Mr. Kennedy, Superintendent of the Police of New York city, candidly confesses that his detectives have been employed in Baltimore and other Cities further South, ferreting out secret organizations, attending the meetings of Southern volunteers, &c., to ascertain if any plot really existed for the assassination of the President. He confesses his disbelief of any such plot. The probability is that we have had these Black Republican spies in our own city, and perhaps a few more are left of the same sort. We trust our own police will be required to keep a good look out for these myrmidons of Lincoln, who have had the audacity already to establish a system of espionage on Southern soil, and for any willing instruments of theirs who may still be found here, ready to give aid and comfort to any scheme, however infernal, of the Helper and Jone Brown Administration.

Secret enemies. A correspondent, referring to "Johnson & Browning's Yankee Traveller," declares that this whole concern, professing to be a Richmond manufactory, is nothing but a branch of a New York house, whose agents are all over the country, as far South as New Orleans, in all probability putting through Helper. Mr. Browning, the Richmond partner, it is stated, has left during the "hot weather." It is believed, however, there are " some more of the same sort" left, some of them women, who are stealthily laboring in their deeds of darkness.
Our resources for the War. A foolish idea prevails at the North that the South cannot raise her own provisions, and will starve outright if the war be kept up.--The idea is born of Helper and is only a type of a class of ideas on this subject by which the North is most industriously deluding itself.--The Census tables show that the South raises more provisions per man than the North, and nearly as much as the great grain-growing region of the West. The statistics of the country also show that the Eastern manufacturing free States consume an equivalent of all the surplus products of the Western free States; and that the free-labor North, taken as a unit, exports little or nothing abroad. The gold of California and about twenty-five millions of miscellaneous truck constitute the sum total of Northern exportations of Northern growth and production. The surplus provisions of the Western free States are nearly consumed by the Eastern manufacturing free States.--The whole exports of

Economical Independence and Wealth of the South. The impending crisis to the commerce and manufactures of the North is beginning to make itself manifest to those who have any faculties of perception and of reflection. The fallacies of Helper's statistics are no longer fashionable. Such a singular exposition of political economy as the following from that foolish rhodomontade is no longer gospel: "Any observant American, from whatever point of the compass he may hall, who will take
s and of manufactures on a credit which is never paid, there is not a Northern merchant or producer of any kind but would be glad, with the return of peace, to sell to the South twice as much of Northern products as he ever sold before.
Even Helper could not deny the magnitude of the Southern consumption of Northern productions, and yet he was absurd enough to argue that the North should destroy the South by an aggressive and agrarian invasion of its social institutions.
And those very New
