The news from New York.

We have some intelligence from the North this morning for more welcome, and much more important, than foreign intervention.--The peace meeting in New York, so bitterly ridiculed by the unthinking — those safe parallels by which the anti-war people of the North were working into open resistance to Lincoln Government — have borne their fruit. --The white flag has been suddenly lowered, and the red battle flag now waves in New York over streets wet with the gore of Lincoln's hate minions. This grand movement in New York is but the precursor of a series of similar outbreaks. Already have riots followed in Hartford, Ct., and Newark, N. J., and in a few days we shall hear from the West. These demonstrations may, and doubtless will, be put down by the iron hand of the military, but there will be no enforcement of the draft after quite is restored. These people have elected to die in the streets rather than submit to the hateful tyranny of Lincoln, and have proved themselves in earnest by pouring out their blood. They have shown a spirit which Lincoln, too glad to see subside, will never again rouse Already he is cowering before it, and telegraphs to Gov. Seymour that the draft will be suspended in New York. When he shall have had time to fill the city with troops this promise may not be respected, but he cannot fill all, or even a half dozen, of the large cities at the North with sufficient force to enforce the conscription. He has not the men to spare and we may very safely conclude that the days as well as the soldiers of the Federal army are numbered. There will be no addition to its strength, and it is confessed on all hands that the present Yankee force under arms can never begin to subdue the Confederacy. Let us have more of these outpourings — a few more great cities on mourners bench — some more gutting and staking of houses, and hanging and mutilating of men. It saves the Confederate troops a deal of marching and fighting, and lops off many a dreary month of this war. The sacking and burning has been heretofore at the South. Our compliments to our Northern "brethren," and may they enjoy their turn.
