In this enlightened day of the nineteenth century, when the dreams of Cnriftan men were about to be realized n the universal free dom of races, they are astonished to find that a day of utter darkness is returning, and human ity is lor another period to bear the yoke of bon dage. Under the specious name of Apprentices .Napoleon the Little has undertaken to supply trie French colonial possesions with slave ia >or bought and brought from the coasts of Airica. But not alone is Louis Napoleon in the c.-sire t .r the j.erunia.-y te-nefi'.v ofslave laboV. The British pres#, both at re and abroad, with singular unanimity enter into the prr. ot* Alncan and poy apprentice? : extract ug in anticipation the greatest amount of success.

In either case he but sub serves the purposes of another. What matters it except ia degree if his lerin of service en dures only for ten or twenty vears, if during that time he is held by an involuntary process. Service performed under* these circumstances ean be nothing short of slavery. The worst feature, if possible, of the appren tice slave business is tr.e gathering desire to transplant the Sepoys of the Ea,t to the planta tions ol the West Indie.. In the event of the subjugation of the mutineers, considerations ol safety dictate such measures as will effectually prevent a recurrence of the atrocities of which India has been so ptolificof late. In view of this it seriously proposed to enslave and scat ter the ievolted inhabitants over "the empire upon \s hit h the sun never s-ts." 5 In this under taking it is intended tci at once repair pecuniary loss anil strike such an impression upon the barbarous tributaries oftbe East as will forever overawe and force them to quietly bear the iron rule of liinr masters.—Taking the question sim ply as a generality, without attending to the revo.tmg particulars given by colonial newspa pers, it tail- to si rike the mind as a proceeding otherwise than tyrannical. Before adopting a course so manifestly at vaiiance with the spirit which animates the true American—and which should animate all mankind—the cupidity ami stolidity of the English official charactei should for once give place to English justice in the treatment of British tributaries. b>o.Tieihiug bet ter is expected of the English people, after their unqualified abuse of the American people f-r the existence of a Constitutional necessity, than the enslavement of East Indians or the traffic ir. African negroes. The mock sympathy hitherto extended by the British press to the Abolition spirits of this country in their fanatical and blinded crusade against American slavery is now thoroughly ex posed. The New York Tribitne y too, is betray ing the hollowness of its professions of world wide emancipation anil goes in for m prenticed slaves.

Ihe President's message will probably not he sent in till Tuesday, as it will'consume the whole ofto-dav swearing in members. There is less excifen nt than n.Tgfif be an-' ticipated regarding the Kansas question. The i President's views on the subject, which will be •>ri fly hut expressed in the message, are : that the Kansas Convention, being in its nature j a sovereign body, bad an undoubted right to sub mit the Constitution to the p-ople < r not, as it might s-e,. fit, and that tor Congress n, m?nt upon I the Convention adopting any particular course. Would be a'd:te< t intervention and in fla'rant violation of the doctrine of popular sovereignly; that, ind< pendent of tin- only questi .n of anv importance, slavery i- to he su mitled to tit*e J p-ople of Kansas: and that there i s neiifier exc >e nor justification in a refusal, therefore,.to: ti: • Locompton Constitution and act up <ll it. i'iii- is in (iicct conflict with Governor Walk-*; er- p isi'ion ; ut there is no doubt it will b jrquiesced in by a large majority of the Northern Democratic im-mbeis, including the New York j lino Pennsylvania delegations. An at tempt wiil f roba ' y be made to shirk the question, fiv the i passage ofan enabling act similar to the Aim- j , ne.sota act, and thus referring the matter back | to the people of Kansis. But (tie firm pnsi- 1 •ion taken by the President, it is believed, will I j prevail. A r ; irt of the court-martial which tried I ' done] Sumner, on the charge against him pre ferred by Mjor Deas, has been transmitted to the President. The court finds him "notguilty" i on every charge afiectiiig his personal reputa- I ; tun, and '•guilty on the minor points relating j ito discipline or etiquette.
