CoysTAsnsoFLE, December 2, ISM. The history of iluroix-au diplomacy, writ ten in a spirit of truth, would be the history of i-olillcal crime umi the unfolding of all the causes of the cver-recurrtug deluges of blood that have so often engulfed the savings of civilization and the hopes of Christianity. And that history over repeals Itself. Thiity-als years ago Crete freed her self from the most fanatical, brutal and cowardly of all oppressions and was by di plomacy tied hand and foot and handed back to her oppressor, it scums incredible that so infamous a crime could have been perpe trated in the life-time of men now living; that in this epoch the rulers of great nations should Lave so violated the spirit of justice und liberty as to em-lavca whole population, who fur nine years had battled ana suffered , fur freedom and woa It with tif expenditure i of hiilf its number, ami mimetic* and mar tyrdoms Inconceivable to ns. And such slavery as U was banded back to!—that of south Carolina was better. The life, the honor, the property, everything that was. was the Mussulman's—"his wife. Ills man servant, his iLald-ecrvant, bisox, his ass, and everything that was his." The conduct of the french and English Consuls in Crete has been worthy the ante cedents of INJO. The former,' more Turk than Islam was. has not hesitated not only to endorse all the talseboods of the press oi Coiistsnlinop'c und the official reports of the local government, but ha* exhausted Inven tion lo framing slanders of all kinds against the Cretans, La» rpeut his time In prosely ting and bis C'ihciu‘.

Bat thle week, we know that only the Govern ment has not succeeded in breaking the spirit of a single district of Crete, but that the in surgents have Just iutlicteo, at Arkn'di, one of the most damaging blows on the invading army that the history of these struggles can show. Every day volunteers arclanainjr and the Cretans petting belter arms; and though thtlr wives and children arc perishing unaer the kuife and the snow, they ore further from eubmitting than ever. The Greek Itlacd of Synt Is only a few hours by steam Irom Uiu Cretan coast, aud it is doing for Crete wbat Nassau did for the Couiedcratcs. The Greek steamer Pauhcli tiion has made some twenty trips to Crete with ammunition and recruits. Some of these have been very exciting, and she has narrowly escaped capture by the Turkish blockading squadron. Ibe Tu?ks call her the Shcltau-vapor (Devil’s slcamerßs and they are this week fitting up one ot the' fastest of the Sultan’s private steamers to capture her—if they can. On one trip, after the date of the last telegram above, she landed 500 men, with breech-loading litlee and four cannon. This week she has made twotrl]« (one a failure! and landed a large quantity of ammunition, sixty bates of leather, u large number of bayonets, all from England, aid StO additional volunteers, in cluding twenty-one Garibaldlacs and thirty, two Montenegrins. She is to to joined in a few days oy a new steel-clad steamer, which can run'vlghtccn knots an hoar, and it U expected that they will pat 500 men a week upon the b-land, ■with all necessary supplies. The excitement in Greece has reached a point beyond which it can hardly go with out forcing a declaration of war between Greece and Turkey. Every one now, from the King down, is in a fever of sympathy for the Cretans. Every available nun and held piece in Grccec has gone already, and volun. leers arc going every day. Even the stolid, selfish Greeks of Constantinople arc moved. This week some 200 have gone from here, and among them young men from the wealth iest families in the city. If the Cretans can hold oat nntil spring, and they may be able to do ro with tnc aid they are now rcrclv*"- fr. m abroad. I have : gvod reason tol-vlitivc that the Greeks have determined to slake their kingdom on a sin fie throw and in their lot with the elat’d of Crete. It would be a bold step for such a kingdom, with less than two millions ot inhabitants', to declare war against Tur key, but they have not forgotten the Greek revolution, and they know that such a step would re-open the Eastern question with a vengeance. My opinion is, Uml it would be the best and wisest thing they could do. They have little to lose and everything to gain by such a step. They have lost their prestige and become a stench in the nostrils of Europe, especially In the moneyed circles, bat a bold step like this would win them fiionds and sympathisers everywhere. It would afford some scope for their restless ness, and they would be pretty sure to come' cut of the conquest with a larger territory than before. Fiance might prevent this by rending an army to Athens, but it can hardly be prevented in any other way. The Turks are protesting already against the aid given by Giceceto the Cretans, and King George has promised to issue a procla mation enjoining neutrality, but it wili de ceive no one here or there. Turkey would declare war against Greece to-day but for the ugly ‘‘Eastern question,” which would at once'be raised. After all. as I have.often said, the roal question with the Cretans I* that of subsist ence, IX they con find food enough to lasi CHICAGO. SUNDAY. DECEMBER 30. 1866. them until spring, they will hold oil even against the 50,000 troops on '.be bland. Time alone can solve the-qneatlon. Mean while the sufferings of the Cretan families and the atrocities committed by the Turks are more revolting than ever. The Servian question has suddenly be* come a very serious one. They have de manded. lormally, the immediate evacua tion ol Belgrade and the live other fortresses held by tne Turks In Scrvla. They have 100,000 well-trained militia, armed «llh rifled cannon and breech loaders, to give weight to their demands, and Russia Is urg ing them on. But the Turks arc in a dilem ma. If they yield, they lose forever the key of the Danube at Belgrade, and they In vite other demands of a similar character from other Christian provinces. If they re fuse, the Servians will do their best to drive them out by force, and this will not be agreeable. Their policy will be to procras tinate and gain time as best they can. but it is questionable whether the Servians are in a mood to tolerate this temporizing policy. Russia Is not likely to encourage anything but action, and Austria is now hardly in a position to exert much Influence In favor of Turkey.

Sbo brought some forty or fifty passengers. The Mexican Opera Company, bound to Now Orleans, tried to get passage on her, but they were finally compelled to take passage on a sail ing vessel. They were expected to sail about the 23d. The Emperor Maximilian baa removed from Orizaba to I’ocbla, for tbe purpose of more

deliberated taking stops for the perpetuity of the Empire. The Council, some time &ir.ce in tetbion at Orizaba, baa returned to tbe City of Mexico. Tbe Church party have pledged $10,003,000 and 40.000 men, for immediate use, to sus tain tbe Empire. The money will be raised at cr.ce by farced and voluntary loans. • The Fn neb troops have already began to embark fur France. One thousand went on .shipboard tbe morning of tbe ISth, when the Mexico was leaving. There are several other transports at Vera Cruz, and more arc expected. All the French troops arc con centrating on tbe highways leading to Vera Cruz, and will be crujmrked as soon as possi ble. So tar as tbe are con cerned. they seem to desire the early depar ture of the French. The talk among the na tives at the capiial is, “ Wo will first get rid ol the French and then orMaxlmliian.” Tbe embarkation ui the French was tbe talk all 'Lioughlbe country, bnt there was no ex citement, only quiet sati’faction. The French are said to have monopolized ail the trade of the country, by Introducing French goods as military goods, which were not such, without paying duties, and thus underselling the resident merchants. They also, on the morning of the 12th, seized the Vera Cm* Custom House, with s2oo.ftX) in cuin, which they transported to tbe French packet Eugenie. A emiducta of $403,0iX) Horn above, went on board tbe same packet, making StOO.COO for France. Tbe Eugenie mailed on the IClh. ’1 he breach between the Empiror Maxi milian and Marshal Ba/aiue is daily w.dcn lug. Max. no longer counts on him fur sap pert, bnt rather desires his absence. The Marshal Bazainc’s (organ at the capital, was 6U-j*ecded on the lolh lust., by order from the Ministry. ’The Empire has been divided into four grand military divisions, with Viduturi, Me jia, Mlratnon and Marquez in command of each. They are all Mexicans by birth, and,, from the beginning, adherent 4 of the Cunrch and Imperial p: rty. Vldiiurtl has command of the northernmost division, Mejia of tbe next, Miramon of the country In which the capital Is located, and Marquez of the south ern or fourth division. They have each and all promised to bring the whole country Into unison with the Empire and nnder Its gov ernment. Ibe Liberals now bold nearly all tho Pa cltlc coast, and it was rnmored at Vera Cruz iLht they had captured San Lula Potoai. It was said that Mejia, on evacuating, had re tired into the Sierras. The Liberals are .-‘aid to be well armed and clad, ami tbe large or ganizations are said to be creditable. The smaller guerilla bauds ore nothing but rob bers. The lowcrrortion of the upper section of the Imperial Railroad, which runs ffvtiu the City of Mexlcv> tb Apasaco, 87 miles, is held by the Liberal General Rodriguez, with 2,500 men. They commanded the traWT to the caju.al, ur.u the goods bound ihithcrl On the 3d and 4th of December the Liber alt made a raid on San Juan. Teotihuaeou, and Otumba. the pyramids, SO miles from tbe capital, and pillaged the country, and levied forced loans. Travel trout Vera Cruz to the city of Mex ico Is now pretty sate on account of the rapid movements of the French, bat everywhere -l»c it is said to be unsafe. • Tbe general opinion is that Maximilian w;l» cot, In the long run, be able to sustain himself, but will finally be compelled to quit the coun ry. . • CAM) IA.

A TUI to the ralnur'kStudio at Irrlu;* ton on (be kludnon. [Cotmpcnderc* of the Jiaiioutl Intelligencer.] Bic-rtladt, the great American landscape painter, the man whose brash has made os all familiar with the grandness of Rocky •Mountain scenery. Is the last acquisition Irvington has made. High up on thotop of a prominent hill, about two miles cast of. hot in sight of Sunnvßlde. and with the solid rock for a foundation, this clever artist has built him a castle of dark, hewn granite. It U a huge,. Indescribable pile, an architectural oddity. The artist was his own architect, and 1 venture to assert he has given to the science a new. if not a very harmonious feature. To describe the figure it cuts on the ground you would need to have the last great work on geometry at your elbow. It baa more short, sharp tinea and acute angles than any other noose within my kuowK*dge. 1 have studied it from almost every point of view, without finding much in It to adtoirv. Indeed, it was some time before 1 discovered what our friend s real object was in building it. At first sight, it struck me as being built in three sections, and put together as the convenience of the owner demanded. Then it occurred to. me that Mr. Bierstadt.'whote mind lake&anUti xary turn now and then, had been studying Professor Mahan on fortifications, and got redoubts, lunettes, paranoia, traverses, cm brafuito and cpauliucnts so mixed up la his admiration that he had them incorporated in hio architecture ; In short, that he had built hb house w Uh a view to a war with England or Fiance,when It could ho very readily con* vet led -uto a fortress, ar.fi made to penom a conspicuous part in defending the position. The wale are certainly thick enough, and the windows are so arranged that puns mutinied in them would sweep the country on three aides, as well as command the river. Three galleries or verandahs stretch along the many sides of the first, second and third stories of this great house, afford ing an excellent opportunity for promenade in rummer. Then there is a look.out on the front, and an immense cupola, the distance from the top of which Is clghty-two feet. As may be imagined, the views obtained from this cupola are of the finest kind. Of a clear morning you can see New York on the south of you, the hills ol West Point on the north of you, while towering high in the fir West are Schooley’s Mountains, in New Jersey. Let ns look into the Interior of thlsartist’s palace. What fixes the attention here is the completeness with which every bit of work is finished. On tbs north side of the build irg Is an immense studio, sixty-eight by foity-two feet, and thirty-six feet from the floor to the centre of the domfi. Broad win dows extend down the sides, and are so ar ranged that the light can be gradu ated to sell the atmosphere and the demands of the artist. A snog little gallery runs across the west end of this studio, which is finished in the most substantial manner with walnut and bard pine. This studio opens west into a library thirty-four by forty-two feet, finished in the Bostic substantial number, and with large ca«*mattd windows overlooking the river and country below. Above this Is an other studio with all the necessary appliances, and which Bier&tadt sets apart fur any artist fiicndwliomaycbai.ce to he his guest. On the lower fim-r, and directly under the libra ry, is an elegantly fitted-up billiard saloon, and also a room that mty be hsod for private theatrical*. The beating and ventilating ap parous are of tbe most ingenious sod com plete kind, as are aho the ess fixtures for lighting iac studios and library. Indeed, the boose in all its parts is a curiosity well worth seeing. ' Here, then, la literature and art blending their gentle ard refining influences • with the wealth and the enterprise of New York, and increasing the social charms of Irvington. I ought to add, alto, that tbe domestic, or family portion of the house, as Olerstadt calls it, is on the south side, and consists ol at least a dozen large and ele gantly furnuhed room*.

Sherman's army rarely ever halted lona enough In one place to permit of those splendid reviews which are no thrilling to the beholder, and which, at the same time. Is of more Importance—stimulates the cfjirif rf« of the troops. Neither did the officers or men have leisure to Indulge in those sports which area lecture of armies doomed to long sieges or permanent sta tions. WhUe, near the close of the war, negotia tions were pending between Sherman and Johnston, our army was exercised in drilling and reviewing, while sports and fun of one kind or another tilled up the hoars. There arc good horaes in the army, Cist hortes, very Cist—but my horse J “There’s no use o’talking,” as people always sav when there Los been a great deal too much talking, and threatens to be u great deal more; but thus each young officer tries to think of his own horse, and having brought himself to that belief, he loses no leisure oc casion to endeavor to impress his belief upon others. And was it not a Field-doy—field for offi cers and soldicisin the morning, and held for frolic, fun and horses in the afternoon ? Thus it was that the not unusual horse discussion came up in that merry group that merry ’day. For several minutes there had been the old dispute between two aids-de-camp as to the relative speed of their two horses. Let ns call the aids Brown and Smith ; the steeds brown and bay. It is to be feared— though no one ftared It then—that Drown, not to say Smith, and, in truth, the whole company, had Indulged too freely in the simple beverages of the season and locality; for alter the usual amount of preliminary parleying Brown makes a direct assault upon itallb, in the following manner: “1 soy. Major, you’ve been talking about that superior mare of yours for a long time. Now let’s have that race, and settle the mat ter.” “Bnt, Brown, my dear fellow, don’t yon see that the mare is weak ? the has not yet recovered from that run the rebels gave me. Why, 1 havu’t had a saddle on her twice/* before to-day, since we left Savannah.” “Well, when will you runherY” aeta Brown, with some impatience. fcraiib, not a little nettled at thelns’nua lien' evident enough In Brown’s language and manner, promptly replies; “Ob, whenever yuu please !” “ Very well. Yonr horse Is on the ground, and so Is mine. We wilt ride them our-elves Duff, and in the wide road which passes the hitote.” “ All right! I accept tho proposition.” The byttandeis, who have been listening this excited and exciting colloquy, at into Lbv spirit of tho fun with the most Jubilant demonstrations. An ad journment was at once madc-to the front of ihc home ; the horses were brought around, examined, and criticised; umpires were dr fen. starters designated, ana bets were made. In tives-ort imuutc? all the material, preparations, and accessories of a Derby Day, on a very small scale, had been made and were present- General t offered to wager a one ban died dollar rebel chin-plaster, new Usue, against a three cent postage stamp on the muic. General B—, with great alacrity, accepted the wager, and the funds were placed in the hands of a third party. Other bets of equal value were aiso nude. In cluding nil sorts oS thiugs, from a b:cvet to a bool-jack. The distance marked out for the race was about three hundred yaids in oce of the main streets of Raleigh. It jmfired by the headquarters of several general officers. On one side of the track was an OrphsnAsylum.aodoatheothcr a Seminary for Yourg Ladles, some two hun dred of jvhom were disinterested, If not amused, spectators of the scene. The street, now. the track, was very good for Raleigh— a comjound of bard clay, with here and there a few stones, bnt with an unreasonable, if Lot unlimited number of rut holes and ; v,t.d puddles. The wicniLg-puat «■•*> a wide ditch farming a part of aliueof teriltlcatlons Infill ter the defence of the cityh-lhc caiihjr,. part of thqvar. ■ ' / Suet was the track. The jocks ?were I'meed In position, thy. words were" "given—cmc. two,, three!—ard away they wmt. The excitement wayinUnsc! For ?ouio reason tl-afcto thiff day .smith does not ard’r<-ti.nd, Brown’s horse had the advan tage,of iwnPßngths at the start, which Smith's marc pamaßy overcame in the first 'fty ya<Q*, this point tce.e was a slight *:u In .nc read nod in affair, for here trewn’ehorct crossed the jt*l ti;ve\ of StultU’s marc, so that her forv-feet came in contact T .-jtb his ;he s;cd awayumajured; ;«hc catrc down on her knee? aad’uigh shoul der, and so great w«r tho terc,. .f'.ii<- fall that she rolled over cud for end. It requires some lines—lines that l ave not Silk a la plrajact plaaes—to describe all lbv*, vh’.cn lock place In tbe twinkling of at eye. The mare was down and done for. But Smith* U requires no great effort to imaging what became of Smith. For fall live itidntcs following the decent of his •;ooJ Mad Lis uwu memory was somewhat indistinct, and his perceptions dimmed. Uni disinterested spectators aver that bo went thro; gh the air with a speed that was Impos sible to bis mure, or to arv other man’s. At one moment his soMicr-llfec bead was dimly ■fvco—■then his military boots. Head, legs, and armsln rapid, rotatory motion, marvcl oosly resembled the bub and spokes of a swm-tnrnlng cart-wheel.

The mare vras examined, and was found to he badly cut where her hind feet had come in contact with the Inside of both fore-shoulders, bat she was otherwise un hurt. Smith states that he is folly satisfied that Raleigh roads are somewhat harder than his herd. Hia tire, which was shockingly braised, was bleeding; and, altogether, Smith was in a pitiable plight. Meanwhile, what became of Brown the victorious? Not seeing the mkhap of his antagonist, not yet bearing the sound of fast-following hoo6, he turned in his saddle. That moment—one partly ofinqulry, chiefly oftrinmrh, for he was wildly waring his hat the while—cost him his own scat and llie scat ol hU white corduroys. For at that instant the horse shied at the war?n~ hat, ami, with no elves words of one, two, three. away west Crown—be one war, the startled steed the ether—and Brown 'rose from the ground with a frightful rent or cut across that portion of his nanUloons delicately called by Irvine, in liia description of the Great Unknown, ‘the broadest part.” Then there was another yell—not from Brown but from the assembled crowd. The wound d were brought in; clusters were ap plied in both cases; the usual stimulants were exhibited; neither Smith nor Brown smtained any serious injury, and from their Bahigb ride they both soon rallied. But that night there was not a private sol . dier la all that ertat army who did not know that two staff-officers, hixjor This and Major That* of General So-and-so’s head quarter, ludbet-n uuhotsed that morning; and ol ell the merry men who laughed at their expense, none enjoyed the Field-day race and its dlsa>ters more heartily than did the principal participants therein. Poor Smith kept hU room for a day or two, with a pla&tercd yet p'acld countenance, the centre ol a characteristic crowd of brother t fljeers who came from far and near in camp to pxy their visits of condolence. Such sympathy 1 No photographer would believe that men con'd puli' their faces to »ucb lengths; no undertaker would believe that heavy-booted military men could come into a darkened room so silently, so sol emnly. They stood in groups, and whisper loply asked if “ poor Smith was likely to live out the night?” and then these sympathetic mui htokatmt into one irresistible, imcon- trollable yell of laughter. It was too much —worse than the rL>e and fall of the Raleigh race—and, in Smith spoedQy re sumed his dally oat-door duties. Hev. James B.
